Underwood prepares for role


New BG interim
manager has
positive outlook

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Belle
Glade city commission hired
William F. Underwood II as its
interim city manager on Tuesday,
April 24.
Just three days later, the city


approved Mr. Underwood's con-
tract, which includes a $125,000
yearly salary and a host of benefits.
Mr. Underwood, who has a
one-year contract with the city,
brings to Belle Glade 27 years of
local government experience.
He had served a previous stint
in the city from 1979 to 1993. The
time there allowed him the oppor-
tunity to hold responsibilities in
multiple departments, including
finance, budget and human
resources, among others.
While in Belle Glade, Mr.


Underwood worked to obtain a $6
million grant that focused on pro-
viding rental housing units for indi-
viduals who have low to moderate
income. He also was successful in
implementing and managing vari-
ous debt issues to improve the
water and sewage systems,
among other accomplishments.
As he begins his new role as
interim city manager, Mr. Under-
wood said city employees have
been receptive of his arrival, evi-
denced by a city staff meeting that
he put together on Monday, April

30. He treated city employees to
donuts and coffee and said during
the meeting he hoped that city staff
would work together to help move
Belle Glade forward.
Mr. Underwood said that he
wants the city to thrive while he's
here.
"The opportunity to become
an interim city manager is an excit-
ing moment," he said. "Hopefully,
I can bring stability here and do
good things in Belle Glade."
Mr. Underwood said he plans
to meet with the department man-


agers by the end of week to get a
better understanding of tasks wait-
ing at the various departments;
what needs to be addressed and
what is critically important, as well
as a larger view of the operation of
the city as a whole.
While he does that, he has a
close eye on keeping the city beau-
tiful by having "in-house" repairs
completed.
One of his larger goals is focus-
ing on storm-ravaged Torry Island

BELLE GLADE On Friday,
March 23, Dr. Camille Cole-
man, Ph.D. was named the
new principal of Glades Central
High School.
Dr. Coleman, who comes to
Glades Central from L.C. Swain
Middle School in Greenacres,
said she plans on being princi-
pal for a long time and making
a difference here.
She replaces Edward Harris,
Ph.D. The two seemed to have
simply switched positions, as
Dr. Harris is now principal of
L.C. Swain Middle School.
Dr. Coleman, a Nova South-


eastern University graduate
with a degree in Educational
Leadership, was a part of

Ag Unit enforces law


Deputies protect
ag businesses
in the Glades

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE When
farmers in the region first
pitched in to help the members
of the newly informed members
of the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office Ag Unit travel to Cali-
fornia on an educational trip,
they weren't expecting much in
return.
Six years later, the unit con-
tinues its mission of protecting
agriculture businesses in the
region, turning to innovative
ways of catching the bad guys
who make it a habit to steal
from the businesses who until


then admitted that theft was
simply a part of the business.
The three-man unit operates
with the well-being of local agri-
cultural companies in mind,
responding almost immediately
when a road patrol officer
hands them the details of their
newest case, or a farmer calls
them because he's tired of
being robbed.
At the top of thieves' list are
tires, batteries, equipment and,
increasingly so, fuel.
One particularly disturbing
trend, the theft of fuel, seems as
though it will only get worse as
time passes.
While most Americans brace
for the impact rising gas prices
will have on their wallets, Detec-
tives Mike Fincannon and David
Aldermann brace for the sure-

Clewiston employee appreciation day is a success


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON To recognize
the hard work and dedication of
employees, the City of Clewiston
rewarded them with an employee
appreciation day May 3.
The staff at city hall dedicated a
full day to acknowledging the
hard work of everyone who is
responsible collectively for ensur-
ing that the city continues running
and operating.
It was the culmination of a
year's worth of work for employ-
ees, who could be seen taking
every second of the appreciation
day to relax and have fun.
The event was held at the
Clewiston Country Club and Golf
Course, and every last city hall
employees, from top administra-
tors to secretaries and department
heads and employees, were invit-


"I just want to say I appreciate everything you
do for the city," Mayor Chamness told the
employees. "You are the ones who strive in mak-
ing Clewiston what it is."
Mali Chamness,
Clewiston Mayor


ed to attend.
Some of the luckier participants
won cash prizes by participating in
various activities at the location.
Of course, given that the day
was organized with a light mood in
mind, the activities weren't the
most sophisticated of games.
One of them was the drunk
driving golf cart contest, where
some of the braver city commis-
sioners wore specially designed
goggles that seriously blurred the
lines of reality and fantasy, while all


the while attempting to steer the
golf carts to their destinations.
Commissioners Joey and Rick
Miller were just two of the city hall
folks to show off their driving skills
then. All driving was conducted by
professionals on a closed course,
of course, under the direct supervi-
sion of Clewiston Police Depart-
ment officers.
Clewiston Detective Chad Pel-
ham, perhaps because he is
more experienced at handling
the glasses, won with a record


quick 36 seconds.
Employees having served five
or more years at city hall were also
recognized during an awards cere-
mony that day.
Five-year staffers included
Maria Antunez, Pete Garcia and
Judy Welborn. Regina Reid cele-
brated 15 years, while Robby Han-
son, with 20 years of service, and
Doug, with 35 years of service,
were also honored.
In charge of recognizing the
employees was Clewiston Mayor
Mali Chamness.
"I just want to say I appreciate
everything you do for the city,"
Mayor Chamness told the employ-
ees. "You are the ones who strive in
making Clewiston what it is," the
mayor said.

TALLAHASSEE Governor
Charlie Crist signed into law House
Bill 211 on Monday establishing a
sales tax holiday from June 1

experience that prepared residents

Winn Dixie attended the bill signing.

hurricanes can impact every
Floridian," said Director Craig
Fugate of the Florida Division of
Emergency Management. "I chal-
lenge all residents to get a plan
and prepare now."
Governor Crist encouraged all
Floridians to update their disaster


plans and to use the tax holiday dur-
ing the first 12 days of June as an
opportunity to restock their disaster
supply kits. Chris Floyd of the Ameri-
can Red Cross attended the bill sign-
ing and displayed examples of tax
exempt items. Below are a few
examples of items that will be
exempt during the sales tax holiday.

value of approximately $16,000,
according to the report.
Investigators also found pack-
ing materials and other drug
paraphernalia inside the resi-
dence.
Mr. Sanchez was taken to the
Hendry County Jail on April 18,
where last week he was awaiting
trial with a $51,000 bond.
It is the latest drug-related
arrest to occur within the county,


in an ongoing operation to clear
the streets of as much illegal
drug activity as possible.
Sheriff Lee said his officers
"are working tirelessly," to fol-
low all leads that come in.
"We will continue working
towards keeping our community
drug free," the sheriff said. "We
will continue doing so as long as
it takes."
In another operation, the
sheriff's office partnered with
the Clewiston Police Department
to execute another warrant.
The two agencies conducted
the operation on April 20.
Nathaniel Thomas, 35, of
Clewiston, was arrested, facing
the charge of possession of
cocaine with intent to sell.
Similar to the Montura
seizure, officers found Thomas
in a residence on West Paso
Avenue in Clewiston.
Officers found an unidentified
amount of suspected crack
cocaine and a loaded 9 millime-
ter handgun on the property.
The county and city law
enforcement agencies say they
work together from time to time
to ensure a more successful
operation.
"Our guys work great togeth-
er, said Clewiston Assistant Chief
Kristine Petersen and am very
glad we had this opportunity to
show how well they can do" she
added.

Police officer runs



over bicyclist


Officials say man
was intoxicated
at time of crash

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
MONTURA A Seminole
Tribe officer struck and killed an
inebriated man on a bicycle who
jumped in front of the officer's
car while he drove on C.R. 833 in
Montura April 22.
The accident happened
approximately one mile of Horse
Club after dark, at about 9:50 p.m.
According to a report released
by the Florida Highway Patrol,
Officer Carlin Coleman, the driv-
er, was traveling north on the
road in a late-model Chevy car
when the accident happened.
His vehicle struck Carlos Mal-


donado, 48, who came onto the
road perhaps without realizing that
a car was quickly approaching.
Officer Coleman's vehicle
caused Mr. Maldonado to be
ejected from his bicycle onto the
east shoulder of the road.
Based on evidence found at the
scene, FHP officials say the bicy-
clist was intoxicated at the time of
the crash, and had been directly
responsible for the accident.
Maldonado was pronounced
deceased shortly he was trans-
ported to Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center for the injuries he
received in the impact.
Although his vehicle sus-
tained thousands of dollars in
damages, Officer Coleman was
unharmed.

Woman shot outside local restaurant


Victim was picking
up her husband at
Wendy's

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE A woman
was shot outside of the Wendy's
fast food restaurant in Belle Glade
May 4, while waiting in the parking
lot for her husband.
The woman, Collinda West, 31,
was struck by at least one gunshot


by an unknown person while she
waited for her husband to get off of
work at the restaurant, according to
Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office
Spokeswoman Teri Barbera.
The incident happened at
approximately 1:05 a.m. on Friday.
While the victim's husband,
Terry Morris, made his way to his
wife's vehicle after leaving the
restaurant, located at 1025 S.
Main St., an unknown suspect
approached him.
The suspect had reportedly got-
ten out of the back seat of a four-door
white car that was also at the scene.


With no words exchanged, the
man pulled out a handgun and
shot in the direction of Ms. West's
vehicle, according to the report.
Police believe the suspect may
have intended to shoot Mr. West
and inadvertently struck Ms. West
under her right arm when Mr. West
told her to drive away, according to
the sheriff's office.
Emergency workers arrived
within minutes to respond to the
shooting, transporting the victim
to Delray Medical Center by
TraumaHawk for treatment. Earli-
er this week, Ms. West was


expected to recover from her
injuries, which were believed to
be non life-threatening.
As in both of the other shooting
cases in the Belle Glade/Pahokee
area, officials with the sheriff's office
encourage anyone with information
about the crime to call investigators.
Anyone who has information
leading up to a possible arrest of
the assailant are urged to contact
the Palm Beach County Violent
Crimes Task Force at 688-4000 or
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-TIPS.

According to a press release of
the incident, the shooting occurred

A 'watchdog'



with manners?



LDEi lewiston n6 Th eSun k
P~-Ly loo altwate Newcemetery i .,,z. Cprov pin ,(*p .a

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback(@new'szap.com or calling your editor.

Wildfire update notes dry conditions


The updated Division of Forestry
Fire Weather Outlook indicates
wildfire potential is extremely high
in all areas of the state. Continued
dry conditions are expected until
the summer rains begin. Potential
for lightning-ignited wildfires will
be high in late May and early June.
The National Interagency
Coordination Center (NICC) Pre-
dictive Services have updated
their outlook indicating signifi-


cant wildfire potential for Florida
until August.
Currently the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index (KBDI) averages
622 for the three county district of
Lee, Collier and Hendry. A normal
reading for this time of year would
fall between 341-550.
Lee County is the second dri-
est county in the State. 98 percent
of Lee County has KBDI reading
above 600.38 percent of Lee Coun-


ty is above 700.
Over 89 percent of Hendry
County has a KBDI reading above
600; 24 percent is above 700.
34 percent of Collier County's
KBDI is above 600.
Everyone needs to do their part
to prevent wildfires. Don't invite
wildfire to your home! Prepare
your home to withstand a wildfire
disaster. For more information go

County offers low-cost pet clinic i


PALM BEACH COUNTY-Palm
Beach County Animal Care and
Control is offering low-cost rabies
vaccinations, tags and micro-chip-
ping for dogs and cats on Saturday,
May 12, from 8 to 11 a.m. Pre-regis-
tration for the Pet Friendly Shelter
will also be available for qualified
residents. The location is Palm
Beach County Animal Care and
Control, 7100 Belvedere Road, West
Palm Beach, west of the Turnpike.


The rabies vaccination, tag and
microchip total is $15 per animal.
All dogs must be on a leash and
cats in a carrier.
Pet owners should prepare for
the 2007 hurricane season by pre-
registering for the Pet Friendly
Shelter, a disaster shelter for pet
and people. The Pet Friendly
Shelter, which is located in Lake
Worth, is available to residents
living in a mandatory evacuation


zone or mobile home in the event
of an approaching hurricane. To
pre-register, all dogs and cats
must be currently vaccinated
against rabies, wearing a rabies
license tag, be micro-chipped
and protected against fleas and
ticks with medication.
Dogs and cats should be pro-
tected against rabies, a fatal dis-
ease. A rabies vaccination and tag
are required by law for pets four


months or older. All puppies and
kittens less than four months old
are required by law to wear a
Juvenile Rabies License tag. If an
animal becomes lost, micro-chip-
ping is good for pet identification
at most veterinary offices and ani-
mal shelters.
For more information, call (561)
233-1271 or 1272, or check the
shelter Web site at www.pbcgov.

May designated as Haitian Heritage Month


PALM BEACH COUNTY -
May has been designated Haitian
Heritage Month by the School Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County. Stu-
dents and schools, along with the
Haitian community, will be cele-
brating with a number of exciting
educational and cultural pro-
grams and events.
A student essay contest is
being organized by the School
District sponsored by the Gaskov
Clerg6 Foundation. Students will
write an essay explaining the
major challenges that Haitian and
Haitian-American students face in
the U.S. education system. Win-


ners will receive prize money
from $100 to $250 and a plaque at
the School Board Meeting May 16,
at 5 p.m. at the District headquar-
ters.
Other activities in commemo-
ration of Haitian Heritage Month
include a student Art Exhibit at the
District headquarters, the Fulton
Holland Educational Services
Center 3300 Forest Hill Boulevard,
West Palm Beach and many
school events. The exhibit shows
the works of art students at Tous-
saint L'Ouverture High School for
Arts and Social Justice.
The goal of the Haitian Her-


itage Month Celebration is to pro-
mote multicultural awareness,
understanding and acceptance of
diversity in our society in order to
better educate our student popu-
lation and strengthen their self-
esteem. This will contribute to
improve their academic achieve-
ment, and to recognize the valu-
able contributions made by
Haitians to the history of America
and the world.
Haitian and Haitian American
students represent the largest eth-
nic minority group from a single
country in the School District of
Palm Beach County.


In the same spirit, the Board of
the County Commissioners of
Palm Beach County and the city of
Delray Beach have each adopted,
on May 1, a resolution recogniz-
ing officially the month of May
2007 as Haitian Heritage Month.
According to community activists,
Palm Beach County is home to
more than 90,000 Haitians.

itage Month celebration in Palm
Beach County visit www.palm

'D' school.
Also, Dr. Coleman said she
would like for the school to make
adequate yearly progress (AYP) to
meet state requirements in aca-
demics.
Long-term planning is another
one of her concentrations. She
would like to see graduating sen-
iors have a firm plan of action for
life after high school, including
preparation for college and the
workforce.
"If you don't have a long-term
plan of action, it's difficult to sur-
vive in today's society," said Dr.
Coleman.


pumps and fill their tanks.
One criminal caught months
ago had customized the body of
his truck to conceal large tanks in
the vehicle's frame. Even from a
distance of a few feet away,
Detective Fincannon's trained eye
didn't immediately spot the differ-
ence.
Some caught said it was all a
bad misunderstanding.
"It's the end-of-the-year
bonus," one of the criminals told
Detective Fincannon when he
was apprehended.
Sometimes, the difficult part is
in getting farmers and business
owners to contact the sheriff's
office when they have been vic-
tims of a crime. Too often, a
farmer calls only when he's had
enough of it, and when officers
respond, go through a laundry list
of additional crimes they had in
the weeks, or even days, leading
up to their complaint.
"They say, 'Last week this hap-
pened, that happened'," said
Detective Fincannon.


cation Leadership, which he hopes
to finish by the end of this year.
Mr. Foster has been taking class-
es for the past year and a half at
Nova Southeastern University. He
said he will continue with classes
in the summer and an internship
this fall.
Currently he is serving as a
teacher-in-assignment, which
serves as a guide to train in becom-
ing an administrator, his ultimate
goal.
The former coach said he
would like to become an assistant
principal someday at Pahokee Mid-
dle-Senior High School. His aspira-


keep expenditures to a minimum,
while maximizing revenue oppor-
tunities.
"The fund balance would put
the city in a better financial posi-
tion," said Mr. Underwood.
He would like to improve the
city's tax base through business
and housing development, he said.
He wants to formulate a plan to
move the citizens into better hous-
ing conditions and hopes to
increase business development by
at least five percent while serving
under the year-long contract. It
won't be easy, he said.
"We're going to attack the hous-
ing issue aggressively and try to fix
it," said Mr. Underwood.

accomplishments at Swain was

The school's results from this

said.
Noting that accomplishment,
Dr. Coleman is focused on the

get is to raise the school's grade

to-come spike in fuel theft on
farms.
"When gas goes over $3 per
gallon, it's gonna happen," said
Detective Fincannon.
According to Detective Fincan-
non, in perhaps a majority of the
cases, the suspects usually wind
up being the companies' own
employees. With property strewn
across hundreds of square miles
of land, the few employees-
turned-criminals find it easy to
perhaps siphon gallons of the
untaxed red fuel that tractors use
on the field. By law, the fuel isn't
allowed on public roads.
Fueling stations are set up,
usually beside a major highway,
and at night it becomes very diffi-
cult to police the remote loca-
tions. That's when the criminals
take advantage and, carrying
small, portable battery-powered
or electrical pumps, tap into the

ever since Hurricane Wilma

2005.
"The sooner the campground
gets up and running, the sooner the
citizens will benefit from the facili-
ty," said Mr. Underwood. He said
the campground could serve as a
vehicle to generate revenue for the
city's tax base.
He remains committed to fiscal

One of her toughest chal-
lenges, though, remains in
increasing the school's overall
graduation rate, putting a dent in
the dropout rate.
For the 2007-2008 school year,
Dr. Coleman said students will be
required to wear ID badges in
addition to the standard uniform
policy at the school.
"What these requirements will
do is encourage the students that
school is an important occasion,"
said Dr. Coleman.
Dr. Coleman said that she
would like for the students to
dream big.


So why don't they report the
crimes?
They just don't have the time
when every minute of their work-
day is valuable.
To keep up with the growing
sophistication of the thieves, the
unit is reaching out to farmers
and businesses, to teach them
ways to minimize the theft.
An example is the awareness
of the detectives that many of the
new digital surveillance cameras
provide very minimal ammuni-
tion to catching the bad guys.
As opposed to old-fashioned
videotape, digital photography
reduces natural images into indi-
vidual pixels blocks of infor-
mation that, when magnified,
uncover nothing except perhaps
a jungle of color and blocky
shapes.
So the unit continues working,
learning, studying, and doing a lot
of good old police work. So far,
it's working and members of the
only two well-organized agricul-
ture crime units, the Tulares


tion is to become a principal, he
said.
"I'm familiar with the kids," said
Mr. Foster. "I think it would be an
ideal place to start my administra-
tive career."
Assistant coach Tyrone Clervan
said that he appreciates what Mr.
Foster has done for the football
program and the high school.
"We will miss his personality
and his enthusiasm for the game,"
said Coach Clervan. "But knowing
he'll go on to administration, he's
still here for us."

In his spare time, Mr. Under-
wood said he likes to play golf
occasionally and visit his grand-
daughter, that is, when he's not
snow skiing in the Appalachian
Mountains, a favorite pastime.
Ultimately, the new administra-
tor's role is simple, he said: He
hopes he will leave the employees
and citizens happier when he
leaves than when he got here.
"In this last week, I have really
enjoyed working for the city of
Belle Glade ... that's the God-hon-
est truth," said Mr. Underwood.
"It's fun."

"It is important for the students
to be dreamers and believe that
they can do anything they want
to," said Dr. Coleman. "If you
don't dream big, it's heard to
attain."
Dr. Coleman said she believes
the high school is on the cusp of
excellence.
"I look forward to Glades Cen-
tral having the recognition as an
all-around institution for great
learning and extra-curricular
activities," she said.

County Sheriff's Office and Action
Project, continue offering their
support.
Both were surprised to learn
fuel theft was a problem in the
Glades also.
Even today, some farmers still
face the difficult fact, since the
unit is currently operating with
only two full-time investigators -
with the recent retirement of
Steve Hinton. Administrators are
now interviewing to fill the slot.
"Just knowing that you guys
are out there is comforting," the
farmers say, according to Detec-
tive Fincannon.

PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Proceeds from "Five percent a

art program
Wellington ArtStart, a
Wellington based non-profit
whose mission is to provide edu-
cational opportunities in the arts,
was the beneficiary of five per-
cent day at Whole Foods Market.
The grocer is committed to
donating at least five percent of
its annual net profits to charita-
ble causes. Individual stores
hold five percent days (or "Com-
munity Giving Days") each quar-
ter, giving five percent of that
day's net sales to a local or
regional non-profit or education-
al organization.
On Saturday, April 21, Whole
Foods Market presented ArtStart
with a check for $4,244.35,
which will be used to expand an
existing art program at the Boys
and Girls Clubs Teen Center in
Belle Glade. The center is funded
jointly by ArtStart and the Boys
and Girls Clubs of Palm Beach
County with added support from

"We are very grateful to
Whole Foods Market for their
generous contribution," said Art-

Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi. "The
program in Belle Glade has been
very successful and we can
make it even better with this

"Community giving at Whole

Wildlife center celebrates anniversary


PALMDALE Did you know
that you can see Lions and Tigers
and Bears just down the road? OH
MY, you can! Vanishing Species
Wildlife of Palmdale, will be cele-
brating their third Anniversary on
May 12 and 13.
Located on U.S. 27 South, just
prior to Palmdale on the east side of
U.S. 27, Vanishing Species is a
Wildlife Preserve that serves as a
permanent retirement home for
wildlife animals of all kinds. Vanish-
ing Species is open to the public
Wednesday through Sunday and
offers many new and exciting edu-
cational opportunities for all ages.
Their special weekend, Mother's
Day Weekend on May 12 and 13,
will showcase the interactive guided
wildlife tours, the Natural History
and Anthropology Museum, the
Herpetarium and the Gift Shop.
On Sunday, special events will
also include Bar-B-Q Concessions
in the picnic area as well as live
music on stage by local musicians

FWC bans

vehicles and

airboats
The Florida Fish & Wildlife Con-
servation Commission issued an
order Wednesday, May 2, restrict-
ing vehicle use on Holey Land and
Rotenberger wildlife management
areas, as well as a portion of the
Everglades and Francis S. Taylor
Wildlife Management Area.
Motorized vehicles, motorcy-
cles, airboats and all-terrain
vehicles are prohibited on the
Holey Land and Rotenberger
areas and on Water Conserva-
tion Area 3A North in the Ever-
glades and Francis S. Taylor
Wildlife Management Area.
The order took effect at 12 a.m.
May 4, will remain in effect until
rescinded. This action was prompt-
ed by the inordinately low water
level in the areas due to a regional
drought. These special regulations
are necessary to minimize the like-
lihood of motorized vehicles or air-
boats starting fires that will harm
wildlife and wildlife habitat.

Pet Corner

Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
Hello. My name is John, and I try to
SMten to your sheiw whenever I can.
Ori occasion I have heard you men-
tion ....."Do not
reed any stray
wild ani-
inals!!".....
Well, I have
a small family
of raccoons on
my property
that I have been
feeding for
about a o
rmonth....They
are so adorable Savvy
And it really seems harmless. Why
is it such abad idea?
Thank you, John from Loxa-
hatchee.
Answer: Well hey John and
thank you for tuning in to the
show...You should call in sometime!
Ok. Feeding wild raccoons is a
bad idea, no matter how cute they
are. The problem you are creating
is a dependency and, teaching them
it is ok to approach humans!! If you
provide feed for them...They will not
hunt for themselves. Also, they may
start to come closer or into your
home thinking you are "Ok". John,
did you know that raccoons are one
of the top rabies carriers? What if
you were bitten? You would have to
go through a series of shots as pre-
vention against contracting the dis-
ease! So, I strongly recommend you
stop feeding them ASAP. Take care,
John...Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com and check
out your answers weekly in The
Pet Corner.

" I











For all those times when winning isn't everything


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
"Don't get upset, Hon," my wife
told me as I arrived home. "What's
wrong?" I asked. "You didn't win."
My wife knows I am very com-
petitive. She knows I don't like to
lose. She knew that I had expecta-
tions of winning with one of my
entries in the Sweet Taste of Sugar
Contest at this year's Sugar Festi-
val. I didn't.
What she didn't know was that
I was already aware of that I hadn't


won and I
was okay with
that. There
were so many
top entries in
the contest that
anyone of them
could have
been the win-
ner. Check out
the recipes John
yourself in the Hicks
2007 Sweet
Taste Recipe book available at the
Clewiston Chamber of Commerce.
I thinkyou'll agree. I felt honored to


be among so many great cooks
and celebrated those who were
victorious. I may have lost on the
scoreboard, but I won in so many
different ways. It was a blast just
making my "creations" for others
to enjoy.
Years ago, I played in a church
soft ball league. Larry was a special
person on our team. He was physi-
cally and mentally challenged, but
took great pride in being a good bat
boy. Our team had a policy that
everyone who came to practice got
to play in the game. Every game,
Larry would be put in at the very


last when it was "safe." Larry
would put on a glove and go out to
right field. I don't recall any balls
that came his way, but he was
happy just to be in the game and
on the field, grinning from ear to
ear as his father waved to him from
the stands. When his time came to
bat, he would swing three times
and then would be happy to go
back to taking care of the bats.
The championship game
came and we were in the top con-
tention. It was the ninth inning.
The score was tied. There were
two outs with one man on base.


Our best hitter was on deck. Larry He stood looking at the ball while
had not played yet and asked the everyone was yelling for him to

Mother's Day-The example and special place Let's tolerate some


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Mary must have been shy,
betrothed to an older man, find-
ing herself with a child, going off
to a strange .e:,a .
city because of
her husband's
obligations,
getting there S.. /q
and finding
there was real- '
ly no place for
them, just
some
makeshift SamuelS.
accommoda- Thomas
tions that were
really more of an afterthought
than a welcome for a first-time
mother-to-be. Life was much
more difficult in those days; no
sterile facilities, no medical staff
standing by in case of complica-
tions, apparently separated from
her family at a difficult time,
being in a country occupied by a
foreign army and little more than
the company of animals when
the pains began and the
inevitable dangers threatened.


Mary, Jesus' mother, shared
with countless mothers before
and ever since all of the difficulties
and hardships that came; and all
of the joys and love that overcame
them. The Lord recalls the suffer-
ings of motherhood when He
spoke to His disciples for the last
time: "You shall grieve but your
grief will turn to joy (John 16:20)"
and He reminds them that moth-
ers don't have an easy time of it,
but God gives them special joys
that can make the sufferings fade
into insignificance.
One of the things I think
worth remembering on Moth-
er's Day is that quality God has
given to our mothers that makes
the sufferings in our lives fade
into the background so that joys
and happiness may help restore
us. Mothers are the ones who
seem to be able to show us from
the beginning that what may
start as pain can end in joy and
love; what may begin as fear or
anxiety can end as a new life and
symbol of completeness. That's
some ability: something that
goes well beyond the ordinary -
and yet mothers do it every day.
The child who comes home


from school when things are not
going well, the father who
comes home from work with
bad news or even the family pet
that knows there is someone in
the household who has been
entrusted with His special gift of
loving and who will provide
comfort and solace; all turn to
that person for the healing and
love only Mother can give.
Mary will provide Jesus with
those early moments of love and
comfort, nurturance and protec-
tion that will be the source of
strength when maturity brings
its darker moments and the
world will become harsh and
daunting. He will be victorious,
of course, because He is God,
but His earthly side will also
have had those qualities to
remind Him about these mar-
velous mothers who turn sor-
row into joy and pain into love.
As we celebrate this Mother's
Day, I plan to share with that
prototype of Mothers in my life;
the one who has sustained and
nurtured, one who has struggled
to make a home, one who has
stretched budgets and made life
better because of her self-sacri-


fices and economies when times
were tough, one who has been a
source of support when self-
doubts could have swallowed
dreams and ambitions, one who
has been there when I was most
vulnerable and most in need of
affirmation.
We take a day out to remem-
ber Mothers and their place in
our lives; mothers take a lifetime
out to do what God has given
them to do best, loving, nurtur-
ing, sustaining, protecting, sup-
porting and they never seem to
miss a beat. Children have special
insights into human homes by liv-
ing in them and growing up in
them. We see firsthand the sacri-
fices and what it takes to make it
all come together. It takes our
adult years to appreciate for our-
selves just what a formidable task
that this little lady undertook and
with superhuman strength
accomplished so well; in order
that we might call her "Mother."
Well done, Mothers, may your
children who can never really say
thanks sufficiently come to realize
that special place in God's
scheme of things that you hold
and never stop.showing to us all.


Goodwill Industries awards outstanding achievers


SOUTHWEST FLORIDA -
Goodwill Industries of Southwest
Florida, serving Charlotte, Lee,
Collier, Hendry and Glades coun-
ties, celebrated the success of
2006 with its Annual Awards Din-
ner on April 26, at its Three Oaks
Banquet Center in Estero. 300
people attended the annual din-
ner and listened to author Randy
Kington speak. Mr. Kington is a
part time Naples resident and
author of "What a Life How the
Vietnam War Affected One
Marine". Randy was paralyzed
from the waist down during an
attack in the war and now speaks


to groups sharing his passion for
life. On this special evening he
shared how his life can be com-
pared to Goodwill's mission of
building lives, families and com-
munities one job at a time by
helping people with disabilities
and other barriers to employment
through work and career develop-
ment services.
Highlights of the evening
included presentation of the Annu-
al Awards. The Chet Perry Achiev-
er of the Year award was given to
Quoyastine "Q" Moore, the Gradu-
ate of the Year award was given to
Candido Benitez of Micro Control


Systems, the Employer of the Year
was given to The Pall Corporation,
and the Business of the Year award
went to Stephen R. Bowen Con-
struction.
Students at Goodwill's Life
Academy,. a charter school serv-
ing students from 14 22 with
development disabilities, made a
quilt that was raffled off at the
dinner. The quilt was raffled off
to teach the students that when
you have 'wants' you need to
provide a means to purchase
them. At L.I.F.E. Academy every
interaction with the students is a
teachable moment. The quilt


taught the students many differ-
ent things including, painting,
sewing, team work and fund
raising. A total of $8,000 was
raised for the Charter School. Mr.
Raymond Holland, Florida Com-
munity Bank, won the quilt and
donated it back to the School so
the students can display this
work of art.
Goodwill Industries of South-
west Florida is a 501 (c) 3 charity
dedicated to helping people with
disabilities and other disadvan-
tages overcome barriers to
employment by giving hope and
encouraging independence.


intolerance


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
In these days when Jesus is
quoted so often to support the
misguided doctrine of tolerating
everything except the Doctrines
taught by the Lord, it is time to re-
evaluate the teachings of Christ
upon Toleration. Jesus was toler-
ant with people, but he was intol-
erant with evil, every time and
always,
Liberalism, masking under the
term of tolerance and broad
mindedness has become the pop-
ular ideology of the shallow think-
ing religionist of this day. What is
the result? Two results are most
evident: that of no genuine sense
of that which is right and wrong
and a drifting into a chaotic world
with not a sign of a compass or
map to guide us to a safe port. The
church today, instead of seeking
to be right by GOD'S word, has
turned largely to being broad-
minded; consequently, they have
lost their power to produce lead-
ership that will stand out for the
great moral principles of God, and
when the right leadership has
diminished then those who fol-
low lose their way. That is why we
are where we are!
It is time for some one to make
a plea for the church to tolerate
some intolerance of that which is
wrong and threatens to wreck the


cause of Christ!
The Christian should not toler-
ate that which is wrong in any
place, whether it be in the school
system, police force, taxes, or in
politics. He may be called narrow-
minded, schismatic and obnox-
ious by the pussy-footing "Tolera-
tors" but before God. Tolerance
must bow before intolerance
when it comes to tolerating that
which is wrong anywhere!
God has only one standard of
conduct and that is right! No
amount of tolerating that which is
wrong can ever become Christian
and no amount of appeasing
those that are wrong, because
they "swing a big stick" or have
the finances that our institution
needs, can ever make their wrong
actions right in God's sight.
There is time to be intolerant
and that is whenever a thing is
wrong. The Christian is not to tol-
erate that which is not right and
just, according to the Word of
God. Now where do you stand
regarding: abortion, prostitution,
homosexuality, sex before mar-
riage, living together without the
benefit of marriage, profanity, ille-
gal drugs (and even some that are
legal, i.e. alcohol), adultery, forni-
cation, lying, stealing, parental dis-
honor, church absenteeism, reli-
gious division and a multitude of
other sins that are being tolerated
in today's society?

Florida history: The Menge Brothers' last canal


By MaryAnn Morris
Editor's note Note: Around
the turn of the century, the
Menge Brothers, J. Fred, Joseph
and Conrad, were employed by
the Disston Company to build
their necessary dredges (after
their lather. Anton Menge's
,itllened design) and then to
li;i the canals needed to lower
the level of Lake Okeechobee
:nd drain the surrounding
tmarshes so that the rich soil
wouldd be turned in to profitable
(urms. They channeled out the
Caloosahatchee River to con-
nect to the lake (Three Mile
Canal): then dug another canal
.o that the wood needed to fire
rhe enormous machine was
readily accessible (Nine Mile
Canal).
Then they started digging the
first canal to the south after care-
fully checking to see whether or
not any rock lay below the
swampy surface.
The following account was
written by Conrad Menge in 1947.
After digging the two cross
canals, the dredge was disman-
tled again and towed down to
Ritta River by a little stern wheel
steamboat called "The Rosalie."
We started digging the canal
from Ritta River south during the
latter part of 1888. After dredging
about 12 or 13 miles, we ran into
a rock ledge and the canal was
abandoned. This canal became
known as Thirteen-Mile Canal.
This was the last canal dug by
the Menge brothers in this region.
The dredge was dismantled and
put on barge for shipment back
to Kissimmee. During the trip
across Lake Okeechobee, a
storm came up suddenly and the
dredge broke loose from the tow
boar. It sank in Lake Okeechobee
and was never located again. This
ended the early dredging done in


Courtesy photo/Florida Archives
Coffee Mill Hammock was located along the Caloosahatchee
River about eight miles above Ft. Thompson. Its name goes
back over 100 years.


Recollections

pioneers and history



i. ..

the region.
My brother and I dug all the
canals in the vicinity of Lake
Okeechobee. We did not work
on any of the canal projects that
went to the east coast from the
Everglades region and we were
not connected with the St. Cloud
operations on the Kissimmee
River.
It was quite a problem to
move the dredge, across the lake
to a new location. The dredge
wasn't very seaworthy and could-
n't be handled by the tow boat at
all in even a moderate breeze.


Towing was always done at night
because there was very little
wind on the lake between sun-
down and sunrise. The dredges
were towed to location by small
steamboats. We used three of
these during the course of our
work as tenders for towing wood
barges and for hauling supplies
as well as for towing the dredge.
The names of all the boats and
dredges used on the original job
wee:
(a) Menge Patented Dredge
this was the first dredge used. It
was worn out on the job and was
abandoned in Lake Hicpoochee
in 1888.
(b) The Gopher this small
stern wheel steamer about 25
feet long was used to haul wood
and to get supplies for the
dredge. It was the first tender
used on the job and was out of
commission in 1888.
(c) Mamie this was a small
steamboat (propeller drive)
about 25 feet long. It was the
second of the three tenders used


on the job.
(d) New Dredge Built in
Kissimmee this dredge was built
by the Disston Company in 1888.
It did not have a name. It sank in
Lake Okeechobee in 1890.
(e) Rosalie this was as small
stern wheel steamboat about 45
feet long, the largest of the three
tenders we had on the job. The
boat, named after Captain Rose's
daughter, was brought down
from Kissimmee. Captain Rose
was the general manager for the
Disston Company. It was the boat
we used to tow the dredge to
Ritta Island after the two small
side canals were dug across the
main canal west of Lake
Hicpoochee.
(f) Hamilton Disston this was
a two-deck stern wheel steamer
about 75 feet long. Its home port
was Kissimmee and it was used
to bring officials of the company
down to look over the progress of
the work
Kraemer Island in Lake Okee-
chobee was named after James
M. Kraemer, engineer for the Dis-
ston Company. I do not know
how Observation, Ritta and Torry
Islands got their names.
I do not know how Fort
Thompson got its name original-
ly. I remember someone telling
me that a person found an old
rusty coffee mill on the high
ground of the hammock east of
Fort Thompson and that this is
the way Coffee Mill Hammock
got its name. This place was
known as Coffee Mill Hammock
long before I came to Florida in
1886."

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AN AIR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT

STATE OF FLORIDA

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Draft Air Construction Permit No.: 0510015-018-AC
Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation Clewiston Facility
Hendry County

The Department of Environmental Protection (permitting authority) gives notice of its intent to issue an air construction permit to Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation for its Clewiston Facility located at 1820 County Road 833, Clewiston, Hendry County.
The applicant's name and address are: Thistan Chapman, Vice President, Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, 1820 County Road 833, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
The permitted, Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, applied on April 20, 2007, for authorization to conduct pilot testing and parameter measurements to determine ifcombusting higher sulfur content fuel oil will meet the sulfur dioxide emissions limit imposed
by PSD-FL-368. This evaluation will require Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation to install, test and operate a rented S02 CEM to continuously monitor S02 emissions for the 30-day pilot test period. During the pilot test period, No. 6 or better grade fuel oil with a
maximum sulfur content of 1.0 percent will be burned in the No. 1 Peel Dryer. The data gathered will determine if the peel dryers can burn fuel oil with sulfur content greater than 0.1 percent, without further modification. The pilot testing is scheduled
to run from June 1 to June 30, 2007.
The permitting authority will issue the Air Construction Permit, and subsequent Final Air Construction Permit, in accordance with the conditions of the Draft Air Construction Permit unless a response received in accordance with the following procedures results in a
different decision or significant change of terms or conditions.
The permitting authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Air Construction Permit issuance action for a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of publication of this Notice. Written comments should be provided to the Department's Bureau
of Air Regulation, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Mail Station #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. Any written comments filed shall be made available for public inspection. If written comments received result in a significant change in this Draft Air Construction Permit, the permitting
authority shall issue a Revised Draft Air Construction Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition must contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received) in Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 (Telephone: 850/488-9730; Fax: 850/487-4938). Petitions filed by any persons other than those
entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the public notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the notice of intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the
permitting authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any
person to file a petition within the applicable time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent
intervention will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file(s) or identification numberss, ifknown;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how petitioner's sub
stantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authority's action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the permitting authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
A complete project file is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at:

Prepare trees for hurricane season

L.L----------------------


With another hurricane season
officially starting June 1, Florida
Power & Light Company gives resi-
dents hurricane preparation advice
and information to save their trees
from potential damage while reduc-
ing the risk of tree-related outages.
FPL encourages customers to
survey and prepare yards now,
before the beginning of hurricane
season. "Previous storm seasons
have taught us that strong winds
during storms can often cause trees
and their limbs to fall upon power
lines, causing power disruptions
and safety hazards," said Steve
Anderson, vegetation manage-
ment specialist for FPL.
Anderson recommends the fol-
lowing tips to prepare Florida resi-
dents and their trees for the
upcoming storm season while
minimizing the likelihood that trees
will interfere with power lines and
disrupt electrical service:
o Look for dead or weakened
branches that could snap during a
storm and begin pruning to help
trees better withstand high winds.
@ If you do see a tree tangled in
or too close to a power line, don't
try and trim it yourself. Only special-
ly trained line clearing professionals
should work around power lines.
a If a tree or branch has dam-
aged a pole or line, creating sparks
or a power outage, call 1-800-4-
OUTAGE to report the problem.
The best way to keep trees
from interfering with power lines is
prevention: choose the right tree
and plant it in the right place to

begin with. Consider the mature
height of a tree when planting near
overhead electric lines.
Trees planted in the right place
are also given the room they need
to achieve proper form and height
without posing a safety hazard. FPL
offers specific tips on the selection
and proper placement of trees
through its Right Tree Right Place
program. Visit www.FPL.com/trees
for a list of recommended trees and
suggested setbacks from overhead
utilities, as well as those to avoid
planting near power lines. Cus-
tomers may also request FPL's
Right Tree Right Place guide by call-
ing FPL's customer care center
number listed on their energy bill.


To improve and protect system-
wide reliability, FPL has also
employed its own aggressive vege-
tation trimming cycle along with
other measures as part of its
"Storm Secure" plan; a compre-
hensive program to strengthen the
electrical grid and make it more
resistant against future hurricanes.
Approximately 11,000 miles of
power lines were cleared in 2006,
including 4,200 miles of mid-cycle
"hot spots" where fast-growing
trees threatened to intrude on
wiring. This year, FPL continues its
3-year on average trimming cycle
of main lines and has launched a
program to trim neighborhood
lines on a 6-year average cycle. In
addition to vegetation manage-
ment, 2007 Storm Secure efforts
and other reliability plans include:
System "hardening" -
strengthens infrastructure serving
critical community facilities to with-
stand severe wind conditions, mini-
mizing potential interruptions to
essential services such as hospitals
and surrounding businesses such
as grocery stores, pharmacies, and
gas stations.
Pole Inspections the com-
pany will inspect an average of
more than 500 poles per work day,
completing 127,000 pole inspec-
tions during the first full year of pole
inspection, reinforcement and
replacement under the new eight
year pole inspection program.
*Thermovision Using state-
of-the-art, infrared technology,
thermovision allows FPL to detect


and replace potentially faulty
equipment before it causes a
power interruption.
Research & Development -
FPL is engaged in collaborative
research with other utilities to study
the effects of hurricane winds and
storm surge on their systems.
"While no system can be 100
percent hurricane proof, FPL's
Storm Secure Plan will improve the
resiliency our system and
enhanced year-round reliability."
said Manny Miranda, FPL vice pres-
ident for distribution system per-
formance. "At FPL, we are working
everyday to make our electrical grid
stronger which will make a mean-
ingful impact in the delivery of safe
and reliable electric service."

Experience the hunt of your dreams


By Tony Young
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
If you haven't been seeing the
quantity or quality of game you'd
like, you may want to consider
applying for a special-opportunity
hunt. For the past 10 years, the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) has
offered these unique fall-season
hunts for deer, wild hog and
released quail on the state's best
public hunting lands. Maybe it's
time you look into getting in on
the action and experience the
hunt of a lifetime.
These extraordinary hunts offer
large tracts of land with an abun-
dance of game and low hunting
pressure. All deer hunts allow you
to take only mature bucks with one
antler having at least four points.
Hunters also can take does if they
apply for, and draw, an antlerless
deer permit. This practice of quality
deer management offers hunters
excellent chances of taking quality
bucks and the opportunity to take a
doe on public land. There is no size
or bag limit on hog hunts.
These special-opportunity
deer and wild hog hunts take
place on Fort Drum (Indian River
County), Lake Panasoffkee
(Sumter County), Triple N Ranch
(Osceola County) and Green
Swamp West Unit (Pasco County)
wildlife management areas.
Fort Drum has several gun
hunts on its 20,858 acres, each
one costing only $50, should you
get drawn. Besides taking 12
deer, hunters bagged 22 hogs
there last year.
Lake Panasoffkee offers both
archery and general gun hunts on
the 8,676-acre tract. Hunters har-
vested 25 deer and 15 hogs there
last season.
Triple N Ranch has two general
gun deer hunts, and 41 deer were
taken off the 10,894 acres last year
- 16 quality bucks.
Green Swamp West Unit is
where James Stovall took the
state's highest-scoring deer on
record a 25-point, non-typical
that netted a 206 Boone-and-
Crockett score. He took the tro-
phy buck in 1999 after getting
drawn for the special-opportuni-
ty bow hunt. The area offers
archery and gun hunts on 34,335
acres. Last year, hunters bagged
48 deer, and nearly three-fourths
of 'em were nice bucks. One
hundred twenty-five hogs were
taken from there as well.

The FWC also has week-long
released-quail hunts on Blackwa-
ter Carr Unit in Santa Rosa County.
With these hunts, you must bring
and release your own pen-raised
quail. There is just one $100-permit
available for each of the 16 weeks,
and if you're lucky enough to draw
one, you and up to three of your
friends will have the entire 590
acres to yourselves.
If you'd like to apply for any of
these great hunts, the first thing
you'll need to do is find a 2007-


2008 Special-Opportunity Fall
Hunt Worksheet available at
FWC offices and at
MyFWC.com/hunting.
Beginning 10 a.m. (EDT) May
8, you can submit your completed
application at MyFWC.com/
license or at any county tax collec-
tor's office or license agent. The
application period runs through
midnight June 13.
These coveted permits are
selected by random drawing, and
you may apply for as many hunts
and dates as you like in order to
increase your chances of being
selected. You must include a $5
nonrefundable fee for each hunt
you apply for, though hunters are
limited to drawing only one per-
mit per hunt.
On or before June 27, you'll
receive, by mail, a special-opportu-
nity permit invoice if you're select-
ed or a rejection notice if you're
not. You have until July 15 to pay
the cost of the selected hunt if you

get drawn, and you may do so at
any license agent or tax collector's
office, or at MyFWC.com/license.
Special-opportunity hunt per-
mits are transferable by simply giv-
ing the permit to another person.
Permit holders under age 16, or
those who are certified mobility-
impaired, may have a nonhunting
assistant accompany them during
all special-opportunity hunts.
Whether still hunting all by
yourself or dog hunting with fami-
ly and friends for deer, hogs or
released quail, if you're looking
for a premium hunting experi-
ence, the FWC's special-opportu-
nity fall hunts are just what the
doctor ordered.
