Legion hosts Memorial event


Large crowd shows
local support

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Memorial
Day honors the armed service
members who gave their lives for
their country.
To recognize the annual event,
Everglades American Legion Post
20 in Belle Glade held a barbeque
event Saturday afternoon, inviting


all local veterans to participate.
About 800 people throughout
the day came out to support the
cause. Each was treated to deli-
cious barbecued chicken and
ribs, cole slaw, baked beans, corn
and iced tea.
According to Bobby Mills, the
commander of Post 20, the pur-
pose of the barbeque was to help
pay for the charitable functions
that the Legion holds throughout
the year and keep the legion oper-
ating for local veterans.
The event, a veritable staple in


the community for well over 30
years, was as collaborative effort
between the Legion and the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
Explorers team.
Deputy Sheriff Lee Sutterfield
said about ten explorers were at
the event, offering their help and
serving food to the hungry crowd.
The deputy said that the chil-
dren in the explorer's program
obtain community service hours
through events such as this.
Wanda Cheek, the advisor for
the PBSO Explorers was also on-


hand to help.
"The legion supports our
Explorers program by being
youth-oriented as far as activities
are concerned," said Ms. Cheek.
Andrea Marotta, the president
of the American Legion Auxiliary
in Belle Glade, said the legion unit
won the Harold J. Ray Children
and Youth Trophy last year, as well
as a district award for community
service for the last two years.
According to Ms. Marotta, the
legion allows the youth to get
involved in positive ways.


"We would like to encourage
families to join the American
Legion," said Ms. Marotta. "We
have an active children and youth
program and would like for
younger members to continue
our work here."
Commander Mills invites resi-
dents to join.
"We are a group of people
who try to do our best to serve the
community any way possible,"
said the commander.

Teen arrested



in stabbing


Victim expected
to recover

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On
Wednesday, May 23, a 12-year-
old boy was reportedly stabbed
after an argument with a 14-
year-old boy.
According to Paul Miller,
spokesman for the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, the inci-
dent occurred at approximately
3:30 p.m. that day with an argu-
ment that quickly escalated.
Officials said that the boys
reportedly had been fighting for
weeks prior to the incident.
According to Larnaisha
Parker, the victim's sister, the
argument may have started as
an argument about nationality
- she said her brother and the


suspect were in conflict with
one another because one is
American and the other is Hait-
ian.
She said she watched from
her residence on W Avenue A,
as the suspect walked up to her
brother.
She said her brother was
stabbed after he fought back.
She ran downstairs immediate-
ly to help her brother.
S"It was scary seeing my
brother get stabbed by some-
one else," said Larnaisha. "It
was stressful not knowing
whether he was going to die or
not."
Mr. Miller said the boy was
wounded in the abdomen.
He was taken to Delray Med-
ical Center for further observa-
tion. Officials said his injury
appeared to be non life-threat-

On Tuesday, May 22 at a residence on Southwest Avenue B Place, students from Mr. Ryan's
construction class and the Tools for Success program at Glades Central High School are in
the beginning stages of installing a ramp built for resident Elijah Worthy.


Resident:
'It's a blessing
from heaven.'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On Tues-
day, May 22, a construction class
from Glades Central High
School installed a ramp for a dis-
abled resident in Belle Glade.
Jay Ryan, a construction
teacher at the high school,
accompanied about 15 students
in building the ramp at a resi-
dence on Southwest Avenue B
Place.
The four-piece modulated
ramp, made by Mr. Ryan's con-
struction class and the Tools for
Success program, was made at
the request of a member of


SNAP, which stands for Special
Needs Assistant Person.
Elijah Worthy, a longtime
friend of the SNAP program,
made a request to the school
board to have the high school
class build him a ramp. Before
long, the class was hard at work.
When they finished, the stu-
dents were happy with the
results.
"They are proud of what
they've done," said Mrs. Moore.
According to officials, Tools
for Success is currently in its sec-
ond term of operation, which
began on January 1 and runs
through June 30. The first term
was from Jan. 1 to Jun. 30, 2006,
when the students built a porch
made for the owners of a
mobile home that was dam-
aged by a hurricane.

By MaryAnn Morris

The slow-moving, squishey
lovebug, often attached to a mate,
is familiar to most people in the
southern United States as what is
splattered all over their cars in the
spring and early fall.
An transplanted species from
Central America, today the love-
bug which is harmless to
humans is found throughout
Florida. Like cute little migratory
birds, lovebugs signal changes in
the seasons from spring to sum-
mer and again from summer to
fall. Moreover, if they were larger,
people could easily see and
admire their delicate features,
particularly the big round eyes of
the males. Wilhelm Rudolph
Wiedemann named the genus
Plecia for the lovebug and its rela-
tives in 1828, so his concept for
the term may never be known.
Generally, most people react
with an "Eeewww!" or a "Yuck!"
when they come into contact
with the black clouds of lovebugs.
Lovebugs like decaying leaves,
manure and such. They will lay
their eggs there. When the eggs
hatch, "Voila!" more lovebugs,
since they don't fly very well, they
don't fly very far from where they
hatch.
Lovebugs do not bite, sting or
transmit diseases and are not poi-.
sonous. They are only active in
the daylight and are much less
mobile during the early and late
daytime hours. Typically, the pairs
fly across the wind and are blown
against obstacles, especially your
car or truck as you tool down the
highway at high speeds.


A fan can be used outside near
work or recreational areas to
keep lovebugs away.
Lovebugs cannot be con-
trolled effectively with poisons or
repellents. There are simply too
many of them.
Origins
Contrary to urban myth, this
insect was not introduced to the
state by the University of Florida.
Over the course of the20th centu-
ry, lovebugs migrated from Cen-
tral America, where their habitat
was being reduced by logging.
Over a course of many years and
many generations of lovebugs,
they traveled through Texas and
Louisiana and into Florida.
Attractants
Lovebugs are attracted to
diesel and gasoline exhaust
fumes. Hot engines and the vibra-
tions of automobiles seem to
attract them to highways.
Active times
Love bugs are usually active
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., in
temperatures above 84 degrees
Farenheit.
Mating season
Each generation of lovebugs
lasts about four weeks in May and
September. Typically there are
two main generations during this
time. But the insects may be seen
throughout the summer.
Problems
Large numbers of lovebugs
can cause overheating of liquid-
cooled engines, cloud or com-


pletely block the windshield and
etch automobile paint if they are
left to bake on to the surface.
Solutions
Within about twenty minutes
after a lovebug-filled drive, wash
your car with water for about five
minutes and then scrub it to
remove most of the lovebugs
without harm to automobile
paint. A hood air deflector or
screen will reduce the number of


spattered lovebugs on your car. '
Pesticides
Chemical controls are ineffer-
tive. There are too many love-
bugs.

Question: Dear Doc Savvy. My
dog Sadie has the most awful
nails to cut. Her nail beds are so
long, there is very little to trim.
She has claws that are nearly
three (3) inches long! Is there a
way to re-train or shorten the
nail beds so she can have short-
er more manageable nails?
Thanks Doc, Jenny in Clewis-
ton.
Answer: Hey Jenny! Yours is


not an uncom-
mon question.
How about
considering a
"Show Nail
Trim"?
Show nail
trims are
when you gen-
tly sedate you Doc
dog and use a
Dremel tool to Sawy


cut the nails short below the nail
bed line. This will teach the nail
bed to start over at a shorter
level. It can stay that way as long
as you do routine nail clipping
on a monthly basis.
When you use the Dremel
properly, it very perfectly short-
ens the nails and stops any
bleeding in the process. Antibi-
otics are sometimes used to pre-
vent infection. Also this is a great


opportunity to clean ears,
express glands, clean teeth,
groom and bath. Ask your veteri-
narian about it! We do it all the
time at my office.
Take care Jenny, Doc Savvy.

Drought equals worst on record, experts worried


Lake Okeechobee
reaches lowest
recorded water level

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Independent Newspapers
LAKE OKEECHOBEE Water
managers continued to express
concern as Lake Okeechobee's
'vater levels sank to levels equal to
the worst drought the body of
water has ever seen.
7 The uncertain part is that there
'doesn't seem to be much relief in
sight and water management offi-
cials say Phase IV restrictions may
be around the corner.
Even as residents around the
lake and much farther, including
the coastal communities of Palm
Beach County, are forced to cut
back their water use by severe
measures, the signs of any relief
approaching quickly seem distant.
"< Unless an extraordinary weath-
Pr phenomenon occurs, and if the
drought conditions persist, the lake
level is expected to continue gradu-
ally decreasing, perhaps far out-
pacing the 2001 record level.
"This is obviously putting us in
one of the most severe situations
we've been in, perhaps it will be

Due to the drought, the area
Inside the dike has dried out
to the point that In some
cases the lake bottom has
caught fire. The sky along
S.R. 78 W. was filled with
smoke Monday morning as a
wildfire of unknown origin
continued to burn along the
Rim Canal and the lake near
the Buckhead Ridge Marina.
Firefighters stated that the fire
broke out around midnight
Sunday, May 27, and burned
throughout the night in an
area that was inaccessible.
the most severe as we expect to
see the lake drop to below the
record today," said Randy Smith,
spokesman for the South Florida
Water Management District.
Earlier this year the water man-
agement district, the body that gov-


erns the area's water use especially
as it concerns Lake Okeechobee,
enforced tougher water restrictions
with the hope that an approaching
rainy season could provide some
relief to the waning lake levels.
Cities as high up along the
state as Ft. Pierce, down to the
Florida Keys, and cities from both
the eastern and western coasts
are under water shortage rules as
the state looks to recover from
what experts hope will only be a
temporary crisis.
Around the lake, fishermen and
others note the continually sinking
lake, many of the fishermen have
taken to fishing in outreaching
canals where the waters are higher,
and some boaters expected to wait
out the drought before risking tak-
ing their boats out on the lake and
running .ashore on some of the
higher points throughout the lake.
Areas as far away as Eastern
Palm Beach and Broward coun-
ties faced drastic modified Phase
III water use restrictions. In sim-
ple terms, residents were restrict-
ed to watering their lawns and
washing their cars only one day
out of the week.
The rules have only slowed
down the sinking water levels.
In the meantime, water man-
agement officials have enforced


the rules by documenting more
than 200 water restriction viola-
tions by homeowners associa-
tions, golf courses and others.
"In the short term we need to
continue with the conservation
efforts, make sure we have full
compliance," said Mr. Smith.
"Longer term is to continue build-
ing large storage areas and devel-
oping alternative water supply,
recycling water."
Meanwhile, brush fires are
sprouting at the bed of the lake,
including a brush fire that erupted
in Brighton on the northern end of
the lake.
Even with an above-average
rainfall season, experts say it is
uncertain if the area will not con-
tinue to be under water restric-
tions. In any event, the water
management district isn't
expecting to see an end to the
problem soon.
"It took a solid 18 months in
the making a wet season last
year that did not materialize it
was a long process," said Mr.
Smith. "It will be an equally long,
arduous process to re-bounce."
Part of that "re-bounce,"
according to Mr. Smith is develop-
ing modified Phase IV restrictions
that can be implemented if the sit-
uation grows worse an unan-

!Heartland Rural Mobility Plan moving ahead


SEBRING The Florida
iDepartment of Transportation
,And the Florida Heartland Rural
Economic Development Initiative
recently kicked off the Heartland
Rural Mobility Plan. The goal of
the Heartland Rural Mobility Plan
is to develop and implement an
overall mobility improvement
process for the six counties and
four communities of the Florida
Heartland. Thi'cncludes DeSoto,
Glades, Hardee, Hendry, High-
lands, and Okeechobee counties
and the communities of Belle
Glades, Pahokee, and South Bay
in Palm Beach County and
Immokalee in Collier County.


This unique joint transporta-
tion planning effort represents a
partnership between the Florida
Department of Transportation
(FDOT) District One and the Flori-
da Heartland Rural Economic
Development Initiative, Inc.
(FHREDI). This comprehensive
planning effort will:
Outline a strategic approach
to address the region's mobility
needs
*Provide a sound business
foundation for public transporta-
tion services
Address the mobility needs
of the Heartland
Recommend a governing


structure, as well as financial and
operational plans
Satisfy the FDOT transporta-
tion planning requirements that
will enable access to potential
funding from federal, state and
local sources
Assisting FDOT and FHREDI in
the Heartland Rural Mobility Plan
will be the Center for Urban
Transportation Research (CUTR)
from the University of South Flori-
da in Tampa and Tindale-Oliver &
Associates, Inc., a transportation
planning consultant firm with
offices in Tampa, Bartow and
Orlando.
The Heartland Rural Mobility


Plan will feature an extensive
public involvement effort with
numerous opportunities for pub-
lic and stakeholder feedback and
input. This eighteen (18) month
effort was officially kicked off at
the FHREDI Board Meeting held
on April 16 in Sebring and will
conclude in the summer of 2008.

Grant helps expand


electronic health record


WEST PALM BEACH Quan-
tum Foundation has announced its
second major grant toward fund-
ing of the Palm Beach County
Community Health Alliance's
(PBCCHA) innovative electronic
health information exchange,
called All-Care. All-Care is a model
program that is being implement-
ed in collaboration with county
hospitals, clinics, and physicians to
create shared electronic health
records for uninsured and insured
patients throughout the county.
When fully implemented, experts
anticipate that it will save signifi-
cant dollars, to improve continuity
of care for patients, and to reduce
medical errors and waste in health
care settings.
Quantum's $300,000 grant will
add thousands of additional
patients to a system that already
houses records for over 60,000
patients, or over one quarter of the
230,000 uninsured people in Palm
Beach County. It augments a
$550,000 grant Quantum provided
in 2005, bringing the Foundation's
total commitment to the initiative
to $850,000. "This will be one of
the largest single grants we make
this year, in recognition of the sig-
nificant progress the Alliance is
making in advancing our vision of
the establishment of a virtual sys-
tem of health care in the county
reality. Ultimately, these efforts will
pay dividends for providers and for
us all. When care is delivered more
efficiently and more effectively,
everyone benefits," said Quan-
tum's President Paul Gionfriddo.
Along with other foundations in
Florida and around the country,
Quantum is playing a leadership
role in advancing the development
of electronic health information
exchanges and has helped focus
the attention of both the State and
the nation on the PBCCHA effort.
As a result, in the past two years
PBCCHA has been successful in
attracting over $500,000 in match-


ing funding from the Florida
Agency for Health Care Administra-
tion (AHCA) to establish the sys-
tem. It has become the most fully
evolved regional system in Florida.
In a significant move earlier this
year, AHCA provided a full year's
inpatient, outpatient, and emer-
gency department data for every
county hospital, the first time
AHCA has done this for a regional
health information exchange.
Other local health and mental
health entities are also in the plan-
ning stages to include patient data
in the system.
The local provider effort is being
spearheaded by the Health Care
District, which was the first agency
to put data into All-Care (from
Glades General Hospital), and the
Health Department, which recently
completed an agreement with
PBCCHA and the Health Care Dis-
trict to allow data for all of its clinics
to be added to the system. In addi-
tion, Caridad Clinic, the FAU Well-
ness Centers, the Carelink Clinic,
and the PBC Medical Society's Pro-
ject Access Program have already
begun to put data into the system.
The goal of the program when
fully implemented in early 2008 is
to allow the development of avirtu-
al system of care in the county,
allowing for the coordination of
health care delivery far beyond
what has been possible in the past.
Quantum concentrates its grant
making in several areas: to assure
that all Pam Beach County resi-
dents have access to quality health
care at reasonable costs; to
improve the quality of care and
provide support for people with
chronic health conditions; and to
promote healthy communities and
life styles through educational pro-
gramming. Since inception the
foundations with assets of $170
million has distributed over $61.6
million for health, education and
community betterment programs.

Let eligible Floridians cast their votes


By Dianne Wheatley-Giliotti

The right to vote is the founda-
tion of our democracy and the
hallmark of our power. The histo-
ry of the oppressed has shown
that one of the most important
rights sought is suffrage. Without
real access to the ballot, every-
thing else is meaningless.
We have gone from poll taxes
and literacy tests to the latest
craze of voter disenfranchisement
- "No match, no vote." Now Flori-
da residents must jump through
the many hoops dictated by the
state if they want to vote.
Florida supervisors of elec-
tions refused to register a large
percentage of otherwise eligible
residents based on the state's pur-
ported inability to verify the appli-
cant's identifying number, such as
a driver's license number, Social
Security number or Florida identi-
fication card number.
These requirements cause
problems for many eligible vot-
ers. For example, a citizen regis-
tering as "William" might not
match if his driver's license is
issued under "Bill." A woman's
married name might not match


against an outdated database
containing her maiden name.
Moreover, matching an appli-
cant's registration number with
information in a database is an
error-prone and unreliable
process. A study by Abt Associ-
ates, a government and business
research and consulting firm,
determined that in a Florida
social-services database, up to 26
percent of the records included
city names spelled incorrectly,
including 40 different spellings of
Fort Lauderdale.
In 2006, a sample of 606 voter-
registration applications submit-
ted to the Miami-Dade supervi-
sor's office by voting rights
organizations Advancement Pro-
ject and Project Vote, found
approximately 27 percent of first-
time registrants were not added to
the registration rolls because the
state was unable to match their
identification number.
Even more troubling, while
Florida's matching procedures
not only disenfranchise numer-
ous eligible voters, they dispro-
portionately impact certain racial
and ethnic groups.
SIt is common for people of


Latino descent to use both mater-
nal and paternal last names or to
use one or the other inconsistent-
ly. If an individual uses a different
version of her name on an appli-
cation than is used in the data-
base, she will not be registered to
vote.
In African-American commu-
nities, it is common to modify
spellings of names spelled differ-
ently in other cultures. One recent
study reported that Jazmine, Jas-
min and Jazmin are all common
names in African-American com-
munities. Any of these names
could easily be misspelled by an
elections worker entering the
name in the database as Jasmine.
Florida's law is inconsistent
with the Help America Vote Act
(HAVA) and in fact is prohibited
by both HAVA and the Voting
Rights Act of 1965. HAVA requires
every state to obtain a unique
identifying number for voter-reg-
istration applicants. But it does
not make the verification of one's
ID number a prerequisite for
one's eligibility to vote. As such,
Florida should not go beyond its
existing methods for determining
eligibility, which include requiring


that all voters present an ID at the
polls.
State voter protection grou s
have asked the Florida Secretary
of State Kurt S. Browning to reme-
dy this Election Day nightmare.
We want him to allow voters
whose identification number has
not been verified to verify their
numbers at the polls by present-
ing identification. Also voters who
are on "hold" because of the
state's inability to verify their iden-
tification number should be noti-
fied of their right to present identi-
fication at the polls. There alsp
should be an Internet posting of
all the people who are on "hold."
Florida is mounting one of the
most aggressive efforts in the
country to keep voters off tle
rolls. Rather than trying to pare
down rolls of voters, politicians
should do all they can to get more
voters to the polls. And while all of
us want the voting rolls to be
accurate, the state must balance
that with the notion that you
shouldn't keep people off the rolls
who are eligible to vote.
Diane Wheatley-Giliotti is the
president of the League of
Women Voters of Florida.


Health care district CEO graduates with honors


WEST PALM BEACH -
Dwight D. Chenette, the Chief
Executive Officer of the Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty, received top honors from
Johns Hopkins
University this
month, gradu-
ating with a
Master of Pub-
lic Health
degree from
the Bloomberg
School of Pub-
lic Health in
Baltimore, Dwight D.
Maryland. Chenette
Mr.
Chenette was inducted into the
Delta Omega Alpha Chapter of
the National Public Health Hon-
orary Society, a distinction
bestowed upon no more than ten
percent of the graduating class
and selected alumni who have
achievements that serve as a
model for others.
Delta Omega was founded at
Johns Hopkins University in 1924.
U.S. News and World Report has
consistently ranked Johns Hop-
kins Bloomberg School of Public


Health (JHBS) the number one
public health school.
"Dwight has been an outstand-
ing student," said Robert S.
Lawrence, M.D., the Director of
the Center for a Livable Future
and Professor of Environmental
Health Sciences at JHBS. "When I
met Dwight in the Problem Solv-
ing course, I knew he was just the
kind of person we hoped would
benefit from our program, bring-
ing his work experience to bear
on the courses he has taken and
using the new information and
skills acquired to influence his
work. His election to Delta
Omega, the public health honor
society, is fitting recognition of the
excellent work he has done. I
have been privileged to serve as
his academic advisor."
Mr. Chenette has dedicated his
career to improving access and
quality of healthcare services for
the public. As the Chief Executive
Officer of the Health Care District
for the last six years, Mr. Chenette
led this public health delivery sys-
tem to provide a safety net of serv-
ices to protect the health of 1.2
million residents annually. Those


services include a nationally rec-
ognized trauma system, health
clinics staffed by a Registered
Nurse in every public school,
health coverage programs for low
income uninsured residents,
pharmacies, an acute care hospi-
tal, a skilled-nursing and rehabili-
tation center and the develop-
ment of a new hospital serving
the Lake Okeechobee region.
"Dwight has made substantial
contributions to the healthcare
delivery system in Palm Beach
County and his recent academic
recognition is well deserved,"
said Dr. Stanley Pierce, Chair of
the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County Board of Commis-
sioners.
Mr. Chenette has worked the
last thirteen years as a public offi-
cial in Palm Beach County and
also currently serves as the Chair-
man of the Glades Healthcare
Foundation, a private community-
based foundation. Prior to joining
the Health Care District, Mr.
Chenette was affiliated with The
Travelers Insurance Company,
Citi Group and John Alden Life
Insurance. Mr. Chenette also


holds an MBA from Rensselaer
Polytechnic Institute and a BS in
Computer Information Systems
from Western New England Col-
lege.
Mr. Chenette has remained
engaged in research and has pre-
sented his work to numerous pro-
fessional organizations, including
the American College of Health
Care Executives, American Asso-
ciation of Public Health, National
Association of Local Boards of
Health, National Association of
Public Hospital and Health Sys-
tems, and the Bloomberg School
of Public Health at Johns Hop-
kins.
"The Johns Hopkins
Bloomberg School of Public
Health is an incredible university.
Many of the faculty members are
world experts in their discipline,"
said Mr. Chenette, Chief Executive
Officer of the Health Care District
of Palm Beach County. "I am for-
tunate to have studied under
these leaders and look forward to
the continued application of these
principles to benefit healthcare
for residents and visitors of Palm
Beach County."

of the game when it comes to
development for other commer-
cial or industrial uses, having
cleared many of the permitting
hurdles associated with the
process."
The EDC and Lykes now have
much of the information needed,
not only for the Glades Palmdale
site, but the property adjacent to
the proposed FPL Power Park off
S.R. 78 in Moore Haven. This
information will be helpful to
market those properties to other
prospective new businesses and
industries.
The EDC director would
encourage other landowners to
use the site description process
outlined by the catalyst project
consultants to provide informa-
tion to the economic develop-
ment council to assist in market-
ing those properties.
"While some of the other
counties have other advantages
more existing medical facili-
ties, satellite community college
and university classes, more exist-
ing housing and commercial
establishments we have more
land with more rail in Glades
County," Ms. Whirls said. "We
also have and intend to preserve
more green space and natural
areas, all of which speak to the
kind of 'quality of life' attributes
companies are looking for when
relocating or expanding. We think
Glades County is the land of
opportunity for new businesses
and the catalyst project is going to
help us convey that to new
prospects."
Ms. Whirls is quick to point out
that whichever county ultimately
"wins" the catalyst project, it will
create opportunities throughout
the Heartland region.
"The Scripps project in Palm
Beach County was a 'catalyst' for
theTorey Pines project in St. Lucie
County. Just as the FPL project in
Glades will create job opportuni-
ties in Hendry and Highlands
County, if a large research and
development park were created
in Highlands County as part of the
catalyst project, for example, a
great many future Glades County
college graduates could expect to
get jobs there," Ms. Whirls said.

Tomato growers request tougher food safety program


TALLAHASSEE In the first
program of its kind anywhere in
the country, Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services (FDACS)
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son announced last week that
his department will institute
food safety regulations govern-
ing all aspects of tomato produc-
tion in Florida. Mr. Bronson is
praising Governor Charlie Crist
for his support and signature last
night of the general agriculture
bill which includes this vital new
program.
In response to growing con-
cerns over tainted pet food and
contaminated animal feed from
China, as well as recent food-
borne illnesses associated with
California spinach and peanut
butter from Georgia, Commis-
sioner Bronson and the Florida


Tomato Exchange devised a plan
to assure consumer confidence
in what is one of Florida's largest
crops and convinced the Florida
Legislature to enact the change
into law during the recently-con-
cluded legislative session.
"Florida is the nation's largest
producer of fresh tomatoes, and
our department and industry are
committed to doing all that we
can to make sure that our crop is
the safest that it possibly can be,"
Mr. Bronson said.
Added Reggie Brown, of the
Florida Tomato Exchange, an
organization representing farm-
ers who produce about 90 per-
cent of the state's tomato crop:
"We're talking about a com-
prehensive statewide program
requiring mandatory standards to
assure that we produce the safest


tomatoes in the world as a means
of assuring public confidence."
Mr. Bronson said that he
believes that the new tomato reg-
ulatory program will serve as a
model both in Florida and
throughout the nation, and that
the program will trigger other
commodity groups to seek such
oversight of the crops that they
produce.
Many Florida farmers, packing
houses and other processors cur-
rently rely on what are known as
Best Management Practices
(BMPs) or Good Agricultural
Practices (GAPs) to grow and
process the crops that they grow
or handle. But the programs are
voluntary, and the change enact-
ed by the Legislature involving
tomato production will make
such practices mandatory.


While FDACS will be required
to adopt specific rules spelling
out the requirements that must
be followed, the rules are expect-
ed to include testing of water
used to irrigate the crops, the
installation of portable toilets and
hand washing stations on farms
and in packing houses, and rou-
tine inspections of such facilities.
"Consumers, retailers and
food establishments are under-
standably concerned over the
safety of the food they eat or pur-
chase, and this new program will
put Florida in the forefront of
what our citizens want and
deserve, Mr. Bronson said. 'I
applaud Florida's tomato grow-
ers for stepping forward .and
requesting this regulation of their
industry.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of

Wood paths lead to special things


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Independent Newspapers
As the sun moves slowly north-
ward reflections and shadows take
on new dimensions. And little
"windows" through low-hanging
limbs are alight with new scenes -
especially those with silvered Span-
ish moss waving back and forth
across them.
There are a few paths that we
have carved through the vines and
saplings that we walk and explore
often, but ours pale in comparison
to those little trails and avenues of
those who naturally call the woods
home. We have to cut and chop
our way while they make their way
bending and brushing against
whatever is in their way. Those of
the deer are marked here and there
with small trees which they have
rubbed free of bark as they stroke
their horns back and forth. One
morning not long ago, one of our
Christmas trees, a tall, shapely Vir-
ginia cedar along the pasture road
was bare of bark completely
around the small trunk for at least
ten inches. The reddish strips of
bark hung like ribbons blowing in
the wind. There was no way it
could survive and it didn't. And,
close by, there was another cedar,
considerably larger, that was
rubbed bare on one side. We split a
two-foot piece of six-inch accor-
dion plastic pipe, fitted it around
the wounded trunk, then taped it
back together. So far, so good,
there's been no more damage that
we can see to that tree. It's a differ-
ent story with a tall eucalyptus on


the west barn road, which was
planted as a sapling about ten years
ago and now stands twenty feet tall
or more. It seems doomed, just like
the little cedar, for there is so much
bark missing there's no way we
can un-do or repair the damage.
However some eucalyptus trees
are amazingly determined to over-
come all obstacles and live in spite
of afflictions. It's been said that
these Australian natives have sever-
al layers of bark which gives them
more of a fighting chance against
animals and fire.
A deer path can be easily fol-
lowed even though when it's in
the woods on a forest carpet, there
are no visible signs of hoof prints.
Nevertheless the signs are there,
especially when their napping
places are found. Amongst woods-
men it's said that deer never sleep,
they just nap and that with one eye
at least partially open. These nap-
ping areas are amazingly round
and often the needles and leaves
seem to have been meticulously
arranged for comfort. And always
there is an escape route, that is, the
path that leads in is just that. It's an
entrance but on one side or end or
somewhere there will be another,
albeit a smaller path, that will
allow the animal to escape if nec-
essary. When the fawns are yet
with their mother, the napping
place is often egg-shaped.
When following some of the
pathways of the woodland crea-
tures, it seems a wonder that they
can get from one point to another
so quickly because often the little
avenues bend and turn so often
and sharply that it seems as


though they could get dizzy in a
hurry. Rabbits and squirrels and
raccoons race like the wind, and
often it looks as though the little
brown soldiers, the quail, prefer
running to flying.
When following these little
trails, it's not unusual to see an
indentation on the forest floor
that's no bigger than a quart bas-
ket. The creature that makes his
bed here does so as artistically as a
wren thin, thread-like "hairs"
from the fronds of Sabal palms are
usually on the outside, while the
inside is lined with the soft down-
like fiber that grows behind the
bootjacks and lichens from any
trees that offer it. And almost
always, there's considerable Span-
ish moss tucked in and around the
homey little "bedroom." Just
maybe one day I'll be there when
"he" or "she" comes wandering in!
Islands of saw palmettos are
wondrous shelters for wild crea-
tures. Beneath the low, many-
trunked palms, heavily laden with
fronds, wind and rain rarely find
their way in. Thus, the winding tun-
nels with little "rooms" here and
there, mostly stay dry and warm.
And the natural mulching of the
dried, sloughed fronds around the
outer rim of these islands, act
somewhat as an alarm system for
those inside. When a predator
steps on dried fronds, the ensuing
crackling noise alerts the inside
inhabitants to possible danger.
Some palmetto tunnels are not
more than eight to ten inches in
diameter, while others can be three
times that size. In a big island, it's
impossible to see the end of any of


A peaceful memorial day

them as they go branching off in
various directions all along. After
trying to crawl on all fours into one
of the larger tunnels to take a look
around, it soon became absolutely
clear that it could not be done with-
out destroying the intricate mak-
ings of those little roads that highly
resemble long, winding covered
bridges. So there was one thing to
do: back out. There wasn't space
enough to turn around! It's always
a help to be able to see where one
is going, especially backwards! The
"roofs" of these islands, being on
many levels and made up of hun-
dreds of fronds, doesn't let a lot of
light through, which naturally
makes the crawling-in or crawling-
out even more difficult. Even at
high noon, the light that does make
its way inside these wild sanctuar-
ies is like a soft, still twilight.
On one early morning explo-
ration when first light was just
spilling over the pond, the path was
followed into the hammock...cen-
turies-old oaks and cabbage palms
and one enormous wild orange
tree. With such a heavy limb cover
it was still dark. Not a sound of
morning could be heard, not even
the first songbird or cooing of a love
dove. But suddenly, there was a
faint brief snuffing sound near my
feet. As my eyes became more
accustomed to the darkness and
pale streaks of light began filtering
through the upper story of leaves, a
shell-like image could barely be
seen. Standing statue-still, watch-
ing intently, there was a subtle
awareness of other little scurrying
movements nearby. By this time
there was a bit more light enough
to begin to see what was going on.
There on the floor of the ancient
hammock, a mother armadillo
was frantically directing her six off-
spring back into a hollow, moss-
covered palm log, her snout rapidly
and cleverly maneuvering her egg-
size babies back into their log
home. In seconds, they were totally
out of sight and there was not a
sound, nor a movement from that
little family of wild creatures.
Silence reined supreme in the ham-
mock until the birds began singing
their morning songs.
Carefully retracing my steps to
the edge of the aisle leading into
that hammock, which we had
come to think of as "the cathe-
dral," the ringing of the old ship's
bell on the porch and the inviting
fragrance of fresh-perked coffee
met me head on. The morning's
adventure was over. It was time to
go home again.

At American Legion Post 20 Barbeque on Saturday, May 26,
American Legion Commander Bobby Mills spent time with two
of his grandchildren: Gabby Graydon, 7 and Kylee Graydon, 4.


Ramp
Continued From Page 1
The Tools for Success program
is funded by West Palm Beach-
based Junior Achievement and
Workforce Alliance.
According to Mr. Ryan, the pro-
gram enables students to develop
a good work ethic. The skills they
learn also come in handy for the
future, the teacher said.
"The students are very dedicat-
ed and hard-working," said Mr.
Ryan. "They love to work for the
community."
Mrs. Moore agreed with Mr.
Ryan. She said she is proud of the
students for giving back to those
less fortunate.
The ramp, built for Mr. Worthy,
will allow him to freely go in and
out of home without having to


depend on someone else if he
wants leave his home.
Mr. Worthy said that he gets
around by using a walker or a
mobile wheelchair.
But until last Tuesday, he said
that he struggled to get out of his
residence because the railings for
his outside steps were insufficient.
He recently underwent an
afnputation of his legs due to dia-
betes. He said the doctors recom-
mended the procedure because
of infections on his right heel.
"The doctors said that amputa-
tion was the best course of action
in order for me to live," said Mr.
Worthy.
Even in the face of such terms,
Mr. Worthy remains grateful for
what the students did for him.
"It's a blessing from heaven,"
he said.

Elijah Worthy said he is happy with the construction of the
ramp Tuesday, May 22. Mr. Worthy is a long-time friend of the
SNAP Program and had requested the ramp.


On Saturday, May 26, Vance Lam, Hal Meeks and Clarence
Throop are cooked up some southern-style ribs and chicken
for guests at the American Legion Post 20 barbeque.

According to Mrs. Jackson,
four individuals from the Glades
area will be honored at the gala.
The individuals include Belle
Glade Mayor Donald Garrett,
Pahokee Vice-Mayor Henry Craw-
ford, retired educator Eddie
Rhodes and John O. Schelecter,

ment.
On June 2, the foundation will
also host a golf tournament to
raise money for scholarship fund-
ing, according to Mrs. Jackson.
Special guests at the tourna-
ment include NFL Hall of Fame
players Eric Dickerson and
Lawrence Taylor. Also scheduled
to be in attendance are profes-
sional golf legends Calvin Peete
and George Roger, according to


held his post for a year, said that his
position allows for him to meet a
host of great people and take part
in events that benefit the commu-
nity-at-large.
"I would like to say thanks to
the community for their support of
this Memorial Day event," said
Commander Mills.

Mrs. Jackson.
The golf tournament will be
held at Madison Green in Royal
Palm Beach, with the registration
beginning at 7 a.m. and the shot-
gun to start at 9 a.m.
Mr. Peete will be giving golf les-
sons from 7:30 to 8:30 a.m.,
according to Mrs. Jackson.
The foundation is hoping to
present between 10 and 20 schol-
arships during the event, accord-
ing to organizers.
Mrs. Jackson said a number of
those scholarships will be given
out to graduating seniors from the
Glades area high schools.
"The Rickey Jackson Founda-
tion provides scholarship funding
for well-deserving Palm Beach
County students, making a differ-
ence in the lives of the youth in our
communities," said Mrs. Jackson.

saw her injured son. After the inci-
dent, she said she was pleased
with the outcome, but hoped that
the suspect would be held in
detention as long as possible.
Ms. Dukes said that she is glad
that her son is alive after the
ordeal.

'Belles' of the ball field are going places


CLEWISTON The Belles Divi-
sion, ages 13-15, held their final
game of the season in Clewiston
on Tuesday, May 22. Both teams,
Howell Oil & Hungry Howies,
went undefeated against two
LaBelle teams and one Belle Glade
team. They have been practicing
and/or playing games since March.
All of the coaches are volunteers
that try to help the girls to improve
their softball skills (batting, fielding
and base running), promote
sportsmanship and encourage the
girls to have fun through activity.
The teams mingled together for
the final picture of the season,
some of them having played on
each others teams since T-ball.
Hopefully an All-Star Team will be
formed from the group. If our
"Belles" win at districts, they will
travel to Sneeds, in early July for the
State play-off games.
A number of the girls on the
Belle team are already playing on
Junior Varsity and Varsity teams at
their respective High Schools. They
all owe a lot of their knowledge of
the game to volunteer coaches.
Keep an eye on this team of lady
athletes.

The Terriers fall 40-6 to Gateway Charter


MOORE HAVEN The
Moore Haven Terriers fell 40-6 to
Gateway Charter High School on
Friday, May 18 at Terrier Field.
Gateway jumped out to a 20-0
lead but the Terriers rallied with
a 70 yard scoring drive, capped
by a 22 yard touchdown run by
Sophomore Fred Hall.
The Terriers however, were
unable to slow down Gateway's
talented offense and keep the
game close. Gateway dressed
out 40 players for the game and


was able to wear down the
smaller home squad.
Antwonne McCloud and Dal-
ton Britt alternated at quarter-
back for Moore Haven and each
player showed promise for the
upcoming season.
"Antwonne is a great athlete
and may play several positions
for us this year. We want to get
the ball in his hands so he can
make plays," said Coach Bond.
"Dalton is a smart quarter-
back and picked up our offense


rather quickly.
He showed poise tonight and
made some good throws."
Richard Anderson led the Ter-
riers with 50 yards receiving and
six tackles on defense. Xavier
Fagan also had six tackles for the
Terriers.
Despite the score, Coach
Bond was pleased with the over-
all performance of the spring
season. "This spring we were
able to install about 50 percent
of our offense. We will improve

Like a Mighty Army Church of God


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A minister asked a returned GI
to speak one Sunday. He consent-
ed reluctantly to do so, but on
condition that just before he was
to speak the congregation sing,
"Like A Mighty Army Moves The
Church Of God" (Onward Christ-
ian Soldiers). Here is what the
young man said:
"Like a mighty army moves the
church of God? That might have
been all right once, but the trou-
ble now is that about ten million


men know exactly how an army
moves and it doesn't move the
way a lot of you folks do in the
church or do not."
"Suppose the army accepted
the lame excuses that many of
you think are good enough to
serve as an alibi for not attending
the church services."
"Imagine this if you can -
Reveille at 7 a.m. squads on
parade ground. The sergeant
barks out, 'Count fours.' One.
'To Three.... Number four is
missing. "Where's Private
Smith?"


"Oh," says a chap by the
vacant place, "Mr. Smith was too
sleepy to get up this morning; he
was out late last night and needed
the sleep. He said to tell you he
would be with you in spirit.
Remember me to him."
"Where's Brown?' asks the
sergeant.
"Oh, puts in another chap,
"He's playing golf. He gets only
one day a week for recreation and
you know how important that is."
"Where's Robinson?"
"Robinson, explains a buddy,
is sorry not to greet you in person,


but he is entertaining guests today
and of course, couldn't come.
Besides, he was at drill last week."
Honest, not, did any conversa-
tion like that ever happen in any
army? Don't make me laugh! If
any GI tried to pull that stuff, he
would get twenty days in the brig!
Yet, you hear stuff like that every
week in the church and it is said
with a straight face, too!
"Like a mighty army? Why, if
this church really moved like a
mighty army, a lot of you folks
would be court-martialed within
the hour."


Memorial Day comes once a year and once a week


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Today is the actual "Memorial
Day" we've changed some cel-
ebrations to coincide with week-
ends, giving people times for
"mini-vaca-
tions" or
longer times
off in -
sequence. I try V
to use such
holidays to
catch up on
projects taking
more than one
or two days; SamuelS.
usually Thomas
accomplishing
something not otherwise likely
to get done. The difficulty is,
though, that the long holiday
weekend becomes an end in
itself and it is all too tempting to
forget to celebrate or remember
the reason for it.
I've heard that people in Amer-
ica spend more time working
each week than most of the other
nations in the world; time off
becomes all too precious and
there had better be a very good
reason for someone to want to


demand any of it, no matter how
good the cause.
The traditions that spring up
around some holidays (like the
Indianapolis 500 race) have come
into being and may not have any-
thing to do whatsoever with the
holiday or reason it is celebrated
in the first place.
This edition of the news
comes on the actual Memorial
Day. Maybe it's not a "holiday"
but it might be worthwhile to take
a moment out to remember. We
are called to remember those
who have made a sacrifice; to
memorialize them and to recall
what they offered. The offering
that was made was for us.
The wry truism that, "Old sol-
diers never die...young ones do"
caused me to reflect on so many
of those who would have been in
the prime of their lives to give up
their lives for people they would
have never met, for a world that
would never be shared, for condi-
tions they never dreamed about.
There is a park in Palmyra, N.J.
named after Fredrick M. Rodgers.
He was 27 years old when he was
killed. He was shot by a sniper in
the Argonne Forest during the
First World War. I never met him
but I know his family because it is


my family. My great-grandmother
never really believed he died no
matter how many others told her
it was really so. Like so many oth-
ers, he lives on; not in the sense
my great-grandmother might
have liked, but in the sense that
he is remembered, memorialized
by those who followed; continue
their lives because of his sacrifice
and who honor his memory.
Memorial Day is the time I
reflect on this distant relative;
dead over twenty yeats before 1
was born. I try to honor him and
all of the others; in all of the wars,
people known and unknown, all
worthy of our memorial. Our tra-
dition has a prayer to bless the
things we offer to God that thanks
God for the gifts of memory, rea-
son and skill. It.is our capacity to
remember that is a big part of our
being distinctly human. Our
memories give us perspective and
teach us, give us reverence and
respect, let us learn from what
happens to us and keeps alive all
that we should have as a part of
our very being. They give us a
foundation on which growing
takes place, where progress is
founded, where life advances.
On this Memorial Day, I'll take
a moment out to remember all


those who gave; those I've met
and those I wish I could have met
and those I haven't met. What we
have, what I have is built on what
they gave us and they're worth
remembering.
Each Sunday I celebrate
another who gave His life. Each
time we celebrate communion,
we are called by those words He
spoke to, "Do this in remem-
brance of me," that we don't for-
get and that, somehow, He
comes among us once more. For
some, it is even hard to get out
on the weekends for an hour or
so: after all, we work more than
the rest of the world.
My own feeling is though, we
have something worth the sacri-
fice to remember and memorial-
ize. It is to honor and to recall
another who made a sacrifice,
who laid down His life, who asks
that we remember Him and our
worship is to be a fitting memori-
al. Each Sunday is a Memorial Day
too. We who "eat this bread and
drink this cup...Proclaim the
Lord's death until He comes." (1
Corinthians 11:26).
Thank God for all of our
memorials: the 31st of May and
the ones we are called to cele-
brate each week, too.


For when there is no such thing as independence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
In Israel, they say that when it
rains, God is blessing the earth. I
would love for God to rain down
His blessings on us! Our drought
and dryness, however, doesn't
really compare to the desert
wilderness that God's people
went through as they left Egypt
and headed towards the Holy
Land.
Some time ago, a man decided
to try to retrace the Sinai desert
experience where God's people
wandered for forty years. He
spent time with the nomadic
Bedouins who make that wilder-
ness their home. He walked the
hot sands and the rugged wilder-
ness mountains. In the process,
he found himself on an unantici-
pated journey of spiritual discov-
ery. He learned something about
why God led His children through
the desert and why God still
leads. This man's conclusion was


this: "In the desert, there's no
such thing as independence only
dependence."
We were raised to be inde-
pendent. It probably started when
we were raised with thoughts and
encourage-
ment that we
could do it by
ourselves. And
we've been try-
ing to do it by
ourselves ever
since. This
independence
flows over into
our walk of John
faith even Hicks
when it comes
to totally trusting God.
Yes, we believe in God. Yes, we
go church. Yes, we try to live'by
God's commandments. But we
want to drive. We like to be in
control (evidenced in our desire
to be the one in control of the TV
remote!) In life, we believe that
we can make it happen. We can
make it work or we can fix it.


Then comes the time of
drought; a season in our life when
the bottom drops out and things
go dry. We find ourselves
parched. The heat is intense.
Before we know it, we are worn
out physically, emotionally and
spiritually. Welcome to the wilder-
ness.
In the midst of our wilderness
experience, it's important for us
to remember that the desert is
part of the plan and to not give up
or give in. It was part of the plan
for the Israelites. It was part of the
plan for John the Baptist as it was
for Paul and as it was for the Son
of God and it is for you and me.
Remember the Word of God
for the people of God in
Deuteronomy 8:2-4: "Remember
how the Lord your God led you all
the way in the desert .:. to humble
you and to test you in order to
know what was in your heart, -
to teach you that man does not
live on bread alone but on every
word that comes from the mouth
of the Lord."


God says He leads us into the
desert to humble us; to bring us to
a place where the Lord is all we
have. It is at such times we learn
that the Lord is all we need. In the
desert, there's no such thing as
independence only dependence.
When we come to our Lord run-
ning on empty and in total need,
we open ourselves up to an expe-
rience of God's power and God's
grace we can't get any other way.
The desert may not be pleas-
ant. It may stress us out. It may
strip us down. But in the midst of
it, remember that God does not
abandon us. God led His people
through the wilderness then and
still leads today. God is there with
us, and His promise is that in our
times of need, He will carry us as
a father carries his child
(Deuteronomy 1:31). It's a "foot-
prints in the sand" type of experi-
ence. In our hardest times of life,
God is there to carry us so that we
can complete the journey and go
farther than we would ever be
able to go on our own.

Construction school grad, Faustin Franconi receives his "tools of the trade" as he gradu-
ates from Palm Beach County Community College's Introduction to Construction program
on May 10.


ik - .. . "-- --
Proudly displaying his certificate, Wilner Fertil graduated from the Introduction to Construc-
tion courses and plans to make a living in the construction field.


Construction graduates ready to make their dreams come true


BELLE GLADE Tool belts
overflowing with tools, hard hats,
work clothes vouchers, OSHA
cards and certificates are the mate-
rial items given to Palm Beach
Community College's Introduction
to Construction graduates during a
celebration in their honor at the


Belle Glade Elk's Club on May 10.
While their training and these
items gave the students all that
they need to find entry-level
employment in the construction
field, it is those things that cannot
be seen or touched that will have
the biggest impact on the 30


graduates' lives.
Through classroom lectures
and hands-on projects, the stu-
dents became proficient in the
essentials of the labor construction
field. During the 168-hour course,
they developed skills in safety,
hand tools, power tools, construc-


tion math, blueprints, basic rig-
ging, masonry, carpentry and plas-
tic pipe fitting.
These newly gained skills both
increase the graduates' earning
power and their confidence.
Many of the students, either
unemployed or underemployed,


are now qualified to find positions
working on the many construc-
tion projects underway in west-
ern Palm Beach County.
The course, offered through a
partnership with Associated
Builders and Contractor's Insti-
tute, is part of a grant that the col-


lege received from the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict to provide job training and
workforce development opportu-
nities to residents of the Glades to
prepare them to work on the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Project.

The students joined in several Car-
nival Activities including a ring
toss, duck pond, bean bag throws,
tattoo booth, Bounce House and
the HUGH inflated Obstacle
Course.
They also got to enjoy dunking
their favorite teacher in the dunk
tank. They were treated to the
popcorn and sno-cone booths
where they really enjoyed the deli-
cious treats. Cupcakes were avail-
able for each of the students, who


then frosted and decorated their
own cupcake.
Ms. Kelly Sullivan and Chris
Boldin, Reading Coaches, were the
coordinators of this event. They dis-
tributed bags of books and suggest-
ed a summer reading list specific to
each child's grade level and gave a
reading log to the children to keep
track of all the books they will read
during the summer months. The
day ended with the DEAR activity
where all the children "Dropped
Everything and Read." A HUGH
thank you goes to B/E Aerospace,
INC, Pioneer Park Elementary
School's Advisory Council, and
other anonymous donors for mak-
ing this day possible.
Also thank you to Philip and
Henry Productions for the Magi-
cian and to Celebration Source for
providing the Dunk Tank, Bounce
House, Sno Cones, and Obstacle
Course. Pioneer Park staff and
administration would like to give
at gigantic shout out to Ms. Sulli-
van and Ms. Boldin.

Former Miami Dolphin tackles



conservation issues


Dwight Stephenson, 49-year-old
NFL hall-of-famer for the Miami Dol-
phins, has joined the lineup on the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission.
Stephenson, who lives with his
wife, Dinah, in Delray Beach, received
word last week that Gov. Charlie Crist
had appointed him to replace Sandra
Kaupe on the seven-member Com-
mission. The couple has three grown
children Marshea, Dwight Jr. and
Dwayne.
The new Commissioner played
center for the Miami Dolphins from


1980 to 1987. Before then, he played
center for the University of Alabama,
where he studied social work. His
compassion for children and people
in need of social services led him to
serve on the boards of directors for
United Cerebral Palsy and the Boys
and Girls Clubs of Broward County.
Stephenson recently collected and
donated 25 personal computers to at-
risk kids in Miami Beach.
He also serves on the Orange
Bowl Committee.
Stephenson is president of D.
Stephenson Construction, Inc. a


general contractor.
In his spare time, Stephenson said,
he enjoys lake-fishing for bream and
bass and does a little deep-sea fishing.
He also enjoys turkey hunting and
playing golf.
Stephenson was born in Murfrees-
boro, N.C. and grew up in Hampton,
Va., where he lived until he attended
college.
"We all have to protect what's
important," Stephenson said. "That's
why I want to serve on the Commis-
sion. Fish and wildlife are an impor-
tant part of life in Florida."
