Red Cross plans shelters


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY Hurricane season
started on June 1 and the Amer-
ican Red Cross is doing its part
to prepare for the possible
onslaught of storms.
Officials said that if a hurri-
cane were to affect the Glades,
shelters would be opened to the
public.
The primary source of shel-
ters will most likely be at vari-
ous Glades area schools, offi-
cials said.


According to Debbie
McDuffie, the Glades Area
Branch Manager, evacuation
routes and shelter availability
will be announced prior to an
oncoming hurricane through
various media outlets.
However, Ms. McDuffie said
that every storm presents a dif-
ferent situation.
What this means is that indi-
viduals and families simply
need to prepare their areas of
residence and have an evacua-
tion plan in place.
"If for some reason a disaster
happens, families should plan


where they will meet for safety,"
said Ms. McDuffie.
Ms. McDuffie said that it is
important to have at least three
days of supplies in an evacua-
tion kit, with additional supplies
at hand.
A list of supplies include at
least one gallon of water, non-
perishable food, a flashlight,
batteries, cash money, a sleep-
ing bag, blankets, important
personal items such as docu-
ments and a first aid kit, to
name a few.
At a shelter, there may or
may not be sleeping cots avail-

able, the branch manager said.
Ms. McDuffie said that this
should be done, whether an
individual or family decides to
go to a shelter or not during
storm activity.
Ms. McDuffie added that if
anyone requires access to a spe-
cial needs shelter, it is best to
register with the Department of
Health ahead of time.
Officials said it is important
to be trained in disaster pre-
paredness, learning how to
administer first aid and CPR and
how to use an automated exter-
nal defibrillator.


These preparations will
enable individuals and families
to better handle the possible
effects of a storm.
"Preparedness is the best
way to survive disasters," said
Ms. McDuffie.

PALM BEACH COUNTY-
In a much-needed avenue for
youth in the Glades area to
grow into successful individu-
als, organizations such as the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office offer a variety of servic-
es to ensure that the youth will
become positive role models.
The PBSO Explorers pro-
gram is one such group. The
participants engage in activi-
ties that build characteristics
such as character, self-esteem
and citizenship skills.
According to Advisor
Wanda Cheek, the program is


formed into two groups: the
junior explorers, who range
from 10 to 13 years of age and
the senior explorers, who are
between 14 and 21 years old.
Formed in 1978, the explor-
ers learn all aspects of law
enforcement, including acci-
dent investigation, firearm
safety, crime prevention and
traffic control, among others.
Deputy Sheriff Lee Sutter-
field said explorers are tested
on their knowledge of law
enforcement and show that
off during local, state and
national competitions.

temps get into the .80's and
above! If a dog is kept in direct
sun without shade, they more
than likely will develop sun-
stroke. This is a deadly condition
that causes overheating of the
body and brain. Seizures are
likely to develop which can
result in permanent brain dam-
age and even death. Remember,
it is illegal to tie out your dog
during the day in Palm Beach
County. If you keep your dog
outside, it must be in a fenced in
yard or a large well ventilated
and sheltered kennel.
So when is it too hot? Now for
sure, and anytime we are
approaching mid 80's and
above. Only let your dogs for
small periods of full summer
heat at a time.
Hope that helps, Take care,

Belle Glade clinic accused of Medicaid Fraud


TALLAHASSEE On Thurs-
day, May 31, Attorney General Bill
McCollum announced the arrest
of nine south Florida residents for
their role in a multi-county health
care fraud scheme that also
involved criminal racketeering,
money laundering and grand
theft. The arrests were the result
of a joint investigation by the
Attorney General's Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit, the Office of
Statewide Prosecution and the
U.S. Department of Health and
Human Services into allegations
of fraudulent Medicaid and
Medicare billing by Belle Glade
Family Health Group, Inc., a Belle
Glade clinic located in western
Palm Beach County.
"This was a sophisticated and


complex organization that clearly
required deliberative thought and
development to carry out its crim-
inal activities, one that required
hard work and determination to
bring to an end," said Attorney
General McCollum. "Whenever
taxpayer-funded programs are
defrauded, our citizens end up
paying the price. This case is an
excellent example of how diligent
investigation and cooperative
efforts can benefit Floridians in
the long run."
Arrested last Thursday were
clinic owner, Hortensia Escoto,
her husband, Ricardo Escoto,
Blanca Marquez, Emelina Mar-
quez, Zoraida Bayon, Maria Pon-
celeon, Dinorah Mateu and Luis
Diaz of Miami-Dade County and


Mary Lucey from Pahokee.
The arrests were made by law
enforcement officers with the
Attorney General's Medicaid
Fraud Control Unit with assis-
tance from the Palm Beach Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office and the Miami-
Dade Police Department.
The investigation revealed that
from October 2004 to October
2005, the defendants ran a sophis-
ticated criminal organization that
fraudulently billed the Medicaid
and Medicare programs for HIV
infusion treatments and drugs.
The investigation further
revealed that the defendants laun-
dered the proceeds of their scam
through a check cashing store, a
durable medical equipment com-
pany and diagnostic center in


Miami-Dade County and a med-
ical transportation company in
Palm Beach County.
They also used these business-
es to provide cover for the organi-
zation's racketeering activities.
Investigators estimate that the
defendants fraudulently billed
more than $5 million to the Med-
icaid and Medicare programs over
a 12-month period.
Eight of the defendants are
being held at the Miami-Dade
County jail awaiting extradition to
Palm Beach County while Ms.
Lucey is being held at the Palm
Beach County jail.
As of Monday, clinic owner
Nieves Delgado and her husband,
William Alvarez, were still at large
as is a twelfth defendant, Jacque-


Drought continues despite Barry


line Reigosa.
Each will be charged with mul-
tiple counts of racketeering,
organized fraud, money launder-
ing and grand theft. If convicted,
each individual faces up to 105
years in prison.
The case will be prosecuted by
the Attorney General's Office of
Statewide Prosecution.
Ms. Delgado, Mr. Alvarez, Ms.
Hortensia, and Mr. Escoto were


arrested by the Attorney General's
Medicaid Fraud Control Unit in
July 2006 on separate charges and
are currently awaiting trial in Palm
Beach County.
Attempts made to contact Ms.
Lucey's home were unsuccessful.
While attempting to contact the
Belle Glade Family Health Group,
it was found that the phone line
was disconnected.

LAKE OKEECHOBEE The
weekend rainfall was a welcome
sight and every little bit helps.
However, it will take many more
such rains to bring Lake Okee-
chobee up to its average level for
this time of year.
Over the weekend Tropical
Storm Barry dropped an average
of about 2 inches on the Okee-

On May 1, Chip Merriam,
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) deputy execu-
tive director, said that the water
levels are so low that if the area


received 3 feet of rainfall there
would still be a drought.
On May 31 the lake level
dropped to a record low of 8.94

"There is no joy at this record
breaking event," said Carol Ann

toward raising lake levels than
local rainfall. Only 40 inches of
rain have fallen on that region in
the past 18.months about half
of average.
As of May 29, only 7 inches of
rain had fallen across South Flori-
da over the last five months,
which is only about one-half the
average.
The weekend rain had little
effect on SFWMD's attempt to
remove muck from the dry lake
bed that has been going on for
several days. Work on hauling the
muck from some of the six sites
around the lake continued Mon-
day, June 4. Officials with SFWMD


have stated that the lake level
would have to rise to 10.5 before
muck removal stops.
Removal of the muck will
uncover the natural sandy lake
bottom and improve water quali-
ty and wildlife habitats.
As of June 1, 15,000 truckloads
of muck had been hauled away
from the dry lake bed.
The record low lake level
caused water managers to tighten
water restrictions in the Lake
Okeechobee area. Agricultural
and residential users have been
asked to cut back on water use, to
conserve as much water as possi-
ble.


Lock schedule changed

for Lake Okeechobee


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District, will begin
a new lock schedule on the W
P. Franklin and St. Lucie Locks
on the Okeechobee Waterway,
effective Thursday, June 7th
until further notice, due to the
continued decline in water lev-
els on Lake Okeechobee. A
record drought has caused the
water level to fall to a record
low.
The Franklin and St. Lucie
Locks will lock boats through
only at Noon, with one lockage
in each direction. The locks at
Ortona, Moore Haven and Port
Mayaca will continue to pro-
vide lockage on an unrestricted
basis, between 6 a.m. and 9:30


p.m.
Conditions will be evalu-
ated on a weekly basis.

WEST PALM BEACH -
Unprecedented drought and
record-breaking water lows have
added up to opportunity for envi-
ronmental restoration on Lake
Okeechobee. Field crews are
working quickly to remove
exposed muck from the dry lake
bed before summer rains and the
hurricane season, which starts
today, bring a slew of storms and
lake levels start to rebound.
"We're working against
time," said Dr. Susan Gray, Direc-
tor of the District's Lake Okee-
chobee Program, "but we want
this job to be completed as
planned, and so far our progress
is steady and impressive. If we
achieve our goals before the
onset of summer rains, we
should see some desired
improvements in wildlife habitat
and water quality."
Since work began last week,
more than 15,000 truckloads of
muck, equaling about 300,000
cubic yards, have been hauled
away from the lake bed. Remov-
ing the muck, laden with nutri-
ents, will prevent 25 tons of phos-
phorus from flowing south into
the Everglades.
Even when significant rainfall
comes, muck removal could be
slowed slightly but will not be
stopped by a few inches of rain,


according to project managers,
who say that heavy, off-road
equipment can handle wet muck
without any trouble. Only if the
lake level rises significantly over
the summer, to about 10.5,feet,
will the work have to stop.
Muck removal will return the
lake bottom to a sandier base,
improving water quality and
restoring wildlife habitat after the
drought ends and lake levels
return to normal. Native plants
and desirable sport fish, such as
bass and crappie, are expected to
thrive when the shoreline habitat
improves. Apple snails, the pri-
mary food source of the federally
endangered snail kite, are also
expected to increase in number.
Phosphorus, a common fertil-
izer ingredient, is found in Lake
Okeechobee muck, and it flows
out of the lake when water levels
are higher. It also impacts the
ecology in Everglades environ-
ment, so six large treatment wet-
lands covering 40,000 acres have
been built to remove it. When the
muck removal project is com-
plete, about 280 tons of phospho-
rus will be gone, equating to
more than 1.5 year's worth of
downstream treatment.
Fires currently burning on dry
areas of the lake bed are not ham-
pering muck removal activities.

Canine Influenza



discovered again


PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Since Canine Influenza was dis-
covered in Palm Beach County
in 2006, Animal Care and Con-
trol has been monitoring for
signs of the disease. Staff has
identified a positive case of
Canine Influenza in a stray
hound, mixed-breed, adult dog
at the shelter.
Dogs in the main adoption
kennel at Animal Care and Con-
trol were exposed to the Canine
Influenza and are in quarantine
for 10 days. However, a second-
ary kennel has been established
in an effort to continue adop-
tions of other dogs, unless fur-
ther cases arise. As a precaution,
rabies vaccinations and micro-
chipping offered at the shelter to
pet owners of dogs and puppies
are suspended until further


notice.
Canine Influenza is a highly
contagious viral infection in the
canine community. It cannot be
contracted by humans. All dogs
and puppies exposed to the dis-
ease will become infected. Clini-
cal signs of the disease, in mild
cases, are severe moist cough,
low grade fever and green nasal
discharge. The symptoms are
similar to and sometimes mis-
taken for kennel cough. The
cough may be persistent for up
to 30 days and is not responsive
to antibiotic treatment. More
severe cases result in pneumo-
nia and possible death.
It is highly recommended
that pet owners continue to be
cautious with their dogs when
going in public places and con-
sult with their veterinarian.

Flowering trees doing well in dry weather


By Gene Joyner
Extension Agent
Palm Beach County
Dry conditions have certainly
affected many people's land-
scape, but sometimes not in a
positive way either. One group of
trees that seemingly is largely
unaffected by our current weath-
er conditions are flowering trees.
Many tropical flowering trees can
be 'seen in landscaped areas
throughout southern Florida and
depending on what type of trees
are involved you can have differ-
ent flowering trees in bloom
throughout most of the season.
The summertime though is
when many of our more spectac-
ular flowering trees put on their
show and a favorite among many
local gardeners is the royal poin-
ciana. The royal poinciana makes
a big tree, often impractical for
very tiny spaces, but certainly in
large open areas such as condo-
miniums, parks, school grounds
or large individual properties it
makes quite a statement.
Mature trees can be up to 100
feet wide and 70 feet tall and if
unpruned will have a weeping
habit of growth with the branches
extending all the way down to
the ground like a giant skirt.
Most royal poincianas begin
blooming in April or
early May and will reach their
peak during the first week in June.
Flowers often continue all the
way through the summer with
some going up as late as mid Sep-
tember.
Flowers individually are two
and up to three inches across and


are various shades of orange, red,
or even yellow. Trees are fast
growing, often growing 8 to 10
feet in a single season so they
don't take long to make a very
impressive size specimen.
Another tree in bloom this
time of year is the cassia which
has bright clusters of yellow flow-
ers and attracts butterflies in large
numbers. Cassias come in many
different types from bushes to
large trees and have a bloom sea-
son that varies from spring
through the late fall and early win-
ter depending on the type. A few
cassias even have pink and white
flowers rather than yellow, but
those are much harder to find in
the nursery.
Most cassias that are used are
less than 35 feet at maturity and
some can be kept as large shrubs
with regular pruning. The individ-
ual yellow blooms can be any-
where up to 3/4 inch to as large as
1 inch and there may be 20 or
more individual blooms in a clus-
ter giving the tree a very beautiful
effect when in full bloom. Some
cassias make abundant quantities
of seed so they're easily propagat-
ed. Others produce few seeds and
can be propagated by other
means.
Native flowering trees are put-
ting on a show, too, and the
Geiger tree from the Keys pro-
duces clusters of tangerine
orange one-inch funnel shaped
blooms throughout most of the
year, but especially in the spring
and summer months. Trees are
small at maturity, often 25 feet or
less and in addition to the native
varieties which has orange flow-

Weight Watchers
plan meetings
Weight Watchers of the
Glades meet Thursdays 5 until 6


ers. There's also another variety
from Texas that has white flowers
and one from the Caribbean that
has yellow flowers. All Geiger
trees produce showy, large mar-
ble sized white seed which is
used for propagation.
The frangipani from Mexico is
another popular flowering tree,
but often it's kept as a large shrub
in the landscape. In it's native area
it can grow to heights of 50 feet or
more, but rarely do you see it
more than 15 or 20 feet in Florida.
The flowers come in a wide range
of colors ranging from pink to yel-
low to white and also multi-col-
ored.
Individual blooms are about
one to two inches, pinwheel
shaped and have a very nice fra-
grance and are often used by
florists for making flower leis for
parties and special events. Frangi-
panis grow slowly, but because of
that they are a favorite for small
landscapes because they can be
kept contained down to a small
size and still produce a lot of
color.
Our native southern magnolia
also is blooming this time of year
with showy six to 10 inch white
fragrant flowers and they will con-
tinue blooming through most of
the summer months. Magnolias
have shiny green leaves and form
an attractive big tree often grow-
ing to over 70 feet at maturity. If
you don't have room for a big
tree, there are dwarf magnolias
that stay under 20 feet with three
to four inch flowers and these are
more suited for small lots or even
growing as large container speci-
mens.

Some of the orchid trees are
also summer bloomers and the
red orchid tree in particular
blooms from late spring all the
way to late fall. The two inch red-
dish flowers are produced in
showy clusters and the plant will
stay under 20 feet with ease.
Orchid trees often make large
quantities of seed, but the red one
produces few seed pods.
The tibouchina or glory tree is
another favorite for the summer
months, reaching its peak in
August and early September. The
inch and a half blue flowers occur
in large clusters on the tips of all
the branches giving the tree an
effect like a blue umbrella from a
distance. Tibouchinas grow a lit-
tle more slowly than other flower-
ing trees, but eventually can reach
heights of 30 feet. Keep these
away from salt spray nearthe
beach areas though because they
are badly burned by salt winds.

To help Floridians prepare for
hurricanes and other disasters,
the American Red Cross is recog-
nizing the 12 Days of Hurricane
Season.
First Day: Water Container
On the first day of hurricane
season, the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
water container. Having an ample
supply of clean water is a priority
in an emergency.
Second Day: NOAA Weather
Radio
On the second day of hurri-
cane season the American Red
Cross recommends you purchase
a NOAA weather radio. As the
voice of the National Weather Ser-
vice, a weather radio provides
continuous broadcasts of the lat-
est weather information directly
from a National Weather Services
Forecast Office. During severe
weather routine broadcasting is
interrupted and special watch
and warning messages are
issued.
Third Day: Fire extinguisher
On the third day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
fire extinguisher. Install A-B-C
type fire extinguishers in the
home and teach all household
members how to use them.
Fourth Day: Plastic Sheeting
On the fourth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase
plastic sheeting. Plastic sheeting is
a vital part of a family disaster sup-
plies kit.
Fifth Day: Canned Food
On the fifth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
supply of canned food. Store at
least a three-day supply of non-
perishable food.
Sixth Day: Generator
On the sixth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
generator. A generator can be a


convenient source of power after
a hurricane strikes. Generators
should be properly installed and
used safely.
Seventh Day: Flashlight
On the seventh day of hurri-
cane season the American Red
Cross recommends that you pur-
chase a flashlight. As simple as a
flashlight is, it can become a very
important tool during and after
disaster strikes.
Eighth Day: Family Disaster
Supplies Kit
On the eighth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
complete family disaster supplies
kit. A family will cope best by
preparing for a disaster before it
strikes. One way to prepare is by
assembling a family disaster sup-
plies kit.
Ninth Day: Sleeping Bag
On the ninth day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
sleeping bag. If you have to evac-
uate your home, a sleeping bag
will provide you with extra com-
fort when you arrive at an Ameri-
can Red Cross shelter.
10th Day: First Aid Kit
On the 10th day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase a
first aid kit.
11th Day: Hurricane Shutters
On the 11th day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross
recommends that you purchase
needed supplies to install hurri-
cane shutters on every window of
the home. Installing hurricane
shutters on all windows of a
home will help to mitigate the
damage due to a storm's severe
winds.
12th Day: Duct Tape
On the 12th day of hurricane
season the American Red Cross

iVote project sees success



at local area high schools


WEST PALM BEACH The
Palm Beach County Supervisor of
Elections (SOE) is proud to
announce the completion of its'
Fifth iVote Project High School Voter
Registration Drive. The program
successfully registered 978 students.
Of the total students, 49 percent reg-
istered Democratic, 35 percent No
Party Affiliation, 15 percent Republi-
can, and one percent other. The
SOE organized the effort between
Palm Beach County Schools, the
League of Women Voters and vari-
ous other local organizations. Most
students were given a brief civics
lesson and registered in their class-
rooms while others were registered
during lunch period. Some were
even able to demo voting
machines. Each registrant was then
given a specially designed "iVote"


red, white and blue silicon bracelet.
The iVote Project was brought
to the Palm Beach County Supervi-
sor of Elections office in February
2005 under the leadership of Spe-
cial Projects Coordinator Adina
Serell. The focus of the project is to
go to all the PBC High Schools and
register and pre-register qualified
students encouraging them to vote
in upcoming elections during the
biannual drives.
"Securing the young vote and
encouraging our youth to become
involved in the electoral process is
so important," said Ms. Serell. "To
date we have registered 9,554 high
school students in Palm Beach
County and we hope to continue
this project until every eligible sen-
ior is registered."
Schools that participated in the


spring iVote Project included
Alexander W Dreyfoos, Boca
Raton Community High, Boynton
Beach Community High, Forest Hill
Community High, Glades Central,
Lake Worth Community High,
Pahokee Middle/Sr. High, Palm
Beach Central High, Palm Beach
Lakes Community High, Seminole
Ridge Community High, South
Tech Academy, Spanish River Com-
munity High, Wellington Commu-
nity High, and West Boca Raton
Community High.

Palm Beach County Supervisor of
Elections Office, the iVote Project,

worker position please visit

EDUCATION


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Thursday, June 7, 2007












Clewiston once had a zoo L. .s


Editor's note: What did peo-
ple do for entertainment in the
early years around the lake
area? The late Beryl Bowden,
who wrote for the Clewiston
News covered that topic in this
story published December 1983.
The article comes from the
Clewiston Museum's collection
of Beryl Bowden's writings. It
was transcribed by MaryAnn
Morris.
"Near the lakeshore center of
activity in early Clewiston, resi-
dents built a small zoo in which
were several wild animals, many
of them captured nearby. Of spe-
cial interest, was a wildcat
whose cage was next to that of
two small monkeys, known as
Mike and Ike.
"The monkeys were con-
stantly fighting and feuding. One
day Mike, tired of the fight,
forced a small opening in the
wire and slipped into the cage
with the wildcat. The cat did not
object, so the monkey remained.
"After a day or so, Mike
climbed back through the hole
into his own cage with Ike. But
Ike was not ready to bury the


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


hatchet and the fighting began
anew. However, this time it was
Ike who slipped through the
hole into the wildcat's cage.
Again, the cat did not object.
This became a pattern of life
for the animals; either monkey
could enjoy the company of the
wildcat, but if the other monkey
intruded, the first monkey would
slip back into the empty cage.
"The Moore Haven newspa-
per printed a little story about
the unusual behavior of the ani-
mals. It attracted the attention of
Harrison Fuller, editor of the Fort
Myers Press, who made the long,
rough journey to Clewiston to
see for himself. He spent several
hours at the zoo and was con-


vinced the absurd story was
true.
"Wild animals find a way to
settle their differences. Perhaps
humans can learn a lesson from
them."
"Zoo watching provided early
residents with a mild form of
recreation, then other activities
soon followed with participants
and spectators joining to relieve
the tedium of work and idle
hours in a rather isolated com-
munity.
"The earliest sport for which
any local preparation was made
seems to be boxing, which was
popular in the South Florida area
at the time. An outdoor ring was
constructed near the lakeshore.
Boxers from other towns also
came occasionally to challenge
the local fighters and the bouts
attracted a good audience.
Young men, even high school
students, trained and practiced
on their own initiative. Some of
these were -Smiley Williams,
Pete Doub, Earl Dyess, Eddie
Bronson, Hooky Avant, George
Waldron, J.E. Davidson and Bill
Snell."


Rudd reunion brings family together


GLADES COUNTY The
Rudd family held a reunion on
May 26, at the Indian Mound Park
in Ortona.-
Approximately 100 people
attended as well as several million
love bugs! People traveled from
Orlando, Bokeelia, Winter Gar-
den, Okeechobee, St. Petersburg,
Clewiston, Moore Haven and as
far away as Delaware.
The Rudd family lived on Lake
Okeechobee in the late 1800s.
They survived the 1928 hurricane
even though the family home at
Utopia was destroyed. They were
among some of the first commer-
cial fishermen on Lake Okee-
chobee. Theirs is a story of perse-
verance and survival.
The family enjoyed lots of
good food and sharing of news.
They are currently compiling a
family history book.
The oldest Rudd at the reunion
was William T. "Dick" Rudd who
will turn 90 this year and is the last
survivor of a family of 12 children.

Wildfire

smoke may be

harmful
Due to the recent wildfires
affecting the state, the Florida
Department of Health is providing
health recommendations to citi-
zens impacted by wildfire smoke.
Smoke is a respiratory irritant, and
can cause a scratchy throat, and/or
irritated eyes and nose. Smoke may
also worsen conditions such as
asthma -and other chronic respira-
tory or lung conditions.
Some steps you can take to pro-
tect yourself and your family from
the health effects of smoke include:
Be your own health judge. If
you can see smoke outside or you
feel the effects of the smoke,
avoid prolonged outdoor activi-
ties. It is especially important to
limit time spent outdoors for chil-
dren and persons with existing
medical conditions.
Stay indoors whenever possi-
ble. Run your air conditioner with a
clean filter and the fresh air intake
closed, to prevent additional
smoke from entering your home. If
you don't have an air conditioner
and are a comfortable temperature
inside with the windows closed,
stay inside. If your home is too
warm, seek alternative shelter.
Keep particle levels inside
your house lower by not smoking
tobacco or using anything that
burns, such as wood fireplaces, gas
logs, gas stoves and candles.

er's competition will be held
from June 25 to 30 in Howey-in-
the-Hills, with another competi-
tion to be held in South Carolina
from Aug. 6 to 13.
Deputy Sutterfield said the
South Carolina Association of
Law Enforcement Explorers
(SCALE) is an intense competi-
tion, but feels that her kids are
ready.
To participate in the competi-
tions, the deputy said the explor-
ers are working details to obtain
fundraisers.
The explorers provide work-
ing details in which they recently
served as traffic directors for
events such as Disney on Ice at
the Belle Glade amphitheatre
and Safety Day at Rardin Park,
she said.
Also, the explorers participate
in various community service
functions such as Fourth of July
- Pahokee, the REACH Fair,
Black Gold Jubilee and last
weekend's American Legion
barbeque, among others.
The explorers serve as Ameri-
can Red Cross volunteers, assist-
ing in hurricane shelters
throughout the Glades area dur-
ing hurricane season, according
to Deputy Sutterfield.
"One of our goals is to teach
the kids that it's important to
give back to the community,"
said the deputy. "One way we
show that is by participating as
Red Cross volunteers."
She said that the explorers are
trained in disaster assessment,
which in part enabled them to
bring truckloads of foods to vari-
ous migrant camps throughout
the Glades area last year.

ments in either the principal's
challenge or for their achieve-
ments on their recent FCAT
exams.
Former principal Ariel Alejo
and Mrs. Curtiss were on hand to
present the students awards.
Twenty third and fourth grade
students received FCAT awards.
Three students from the fifth
grade were honored. They
received a $25 saving bond and
a plaque for their achievements.
In addition, 27 students were
recognized for showing the
most improvement in their FCAT
scores. Students who showed
the most improvement on their
FCAT scored received an
AM/FM/CD portable stereo.
First time Principal's Chal-
lenge winners received medals.
Second time winners received
trophies. The third time winners
received Aloha bags.
Nancy Hainley, the school
librarian and an organizer of the
Reading Counts program, said
that the students increased their
reading comprehension, which
resulted in better scores on their
FCAT exams.
"Now, the students have a
love for reading," said Ms. Hain-
ley.
She explained that in order to
make it to the principal's chal-
lenge, founded by outgoing
Glade View Elementary School
principal Mary Evans, the stu-
dents had to read ascertain book
and pass the quizzes on those
books. The students earned
points on each book, which was
primarily based on the level,of
difficulty.
Ms. Hainley added that the
students were able to take just
one test a day, with the book on
their reading level. The tests
were taken in either a reading


Ms. Cheek said through all of
these activities, the explorers
grow into such careers as law
enforcement deputies and offi-
cers, state troopers, nurses, and
an array of others.
Deputy Sutterfield said that
many of the past and present
explorers tell her how the pro-
gram has impacted their lives.
"If you could walk through
life and touch the life of a young
person, then you haven't lived
your life in vain," said the deputy.
Explorer Terria Sanford, a
2006 Glades Central High School
graduate and current student at
Florida Atlantic University, can
attest to that.
S"I learned from the explorers
program how to deal with peo-
ple," said Ms. Sanford. "The
logistics, the planning that goes
behind major events and learn-
ing to become a professional
have molded me into becoming
a well-rounded citizen."
Ms. Sanford, who Deputy Sut-
terfield said is now the highest-
ranking explorer in the post, is
currently teaching the other
explorers leadership skills that
she learned through the pro-
gram.
"The biggest thing for me is to
lead by example," said Ms. San-
ford. "You can't tell people what
to do if you don't do it yourself
and Deputy Sutterfield is a great
example of that. She's always
positive and whatever she
directs us to do, she's right there
with us."
Deputy Sutterfield said that
she is proud of how all of the
explorers are striving to become
successful individuals in the
future.
"We want the kids to be the
best they can be in life," said
Deputy Sutterfield.

"The students worked
very hard all year to
meet the challenge and
it was evident in the
results of the FCAT
reading. I was so proud
of the children as they
received their awards."

laboratory or a computer center
at the elementary school.
For example, the fifth-grade
students must have earned at
least a total of 60 points by May
18, the last day of the principal's
challenge.
Thirty students from the fifth-
grade met the requirements to
earn a Reading Counts award.
The third Principal's Chal-
lenge began on Feb. 20, accord-
ing to Gina Young, a reading
coach and an organizer of the
program.
"The students are very proud
of their achievements, as are we
at Belle Glade Elementary
School," said Mrs. Young.
Mrs. Curtiss said the Princi-
pal's Challenge/FCAT awards
program was a great success.
"The students worked very
hard all year to meet the chal-
lenge and it was evident in the
results of the FCAT reading,"
said Mrs. Curtiss. "I was so
proud of the children as they
received their awards."
Mrs. Curtiss said the students
were excited and happy, while
not forgetting to thank the teach-
ers and staff on board.
"The children proved to
themselves they can do it," said
Mrs. Curtiss.

For their accomplishments,
the science scholars received tro-
phies, with the top 'Reading
Counts' scholars receiving tro-
phies and a bicycle. Since Frantz
was the overall scholar, he was
also awarded a Dell desktop com-
puter.
Many students in the school
received scholarships for scoring
at least a four out of a possible five
points on their FCAT exams.
Students who scored a 95 or
above on their norm-reference
tests also received scholarships.
If a student scored a perfect
five on their FCAT exams, they
received a $100 scholarship. Nine
students were able to accomplish
that feat, as they earned a limou-
sine ride to the Cheesecake Facto-
ry in West Palm Beach for lunch
the day before.
Scoring a four out of a possible
five on the FCAT exams enabled
students to receive a $40 scholar-
ship, while students received a
$25 scholarship if they scored a 95
or above on the NRT.
According to Mary O. Evans,
the school's principal, over $6,000
in scholarship money was award-
ed to the students.
Jessie Terry, the parent liai-
son/resource teacher for the
school, was pleased with the
turnout of the ceremony.
"I was excited and proud of
the students' and parents' partici-
pation in all of our ceremonies
throughout the year," said Ms.
Terry. "The communication
between the administration,
teachers, parents and students
has contributed to making this
school year a success."
.Ms. Mary Harvey, a fifth-grade
reading teacher, was impressed
with the students' progress

mentary School, is pictured here with her granddaughter, assistant principal Shaundra Dow-

throughout the school year.
"Based on their fall diagnostic
scores, it showed areas of con-
cern that we needed to improve
on," said Ms. Harvey. "But by the
winter, those areas were no
longer of concern."
Ms. Vonda Rushing, the fifth-
grade reading chairperson who is
also a reading teacher, agreed
with Ms. Harvey's assessment of
the student's progress.
"It was a long, hard process
but we rose to the occasion and
the students are all on grade
level," said Ms. Rushing.


Carla Lewis, the math coach
from kindergarten through the
fifth grade, weighed in on the stu-
dents' progress throughout the
school year.
"The students have shown
tremendous growth," said Ms.
Lewis. "They really stepped up to
the plate and rose to the occa-
sion."
Towards the end of the awards
ceremony, Ms. Evans was proud
to tell the students, parents and
staff that when the school grade
comes out later this month, Glade
View Elementary may be deemed


an A' school by the state.
Ms. Evans concluded the cere-
mony by thanking the staff, par-
ents and students for the time that
she served as the principal for the
elementary school, which spans
three years.
"It's just a pleasure to present
scholarships to the students," said
Ms. Evans. "We want the students
to excel in academics throughout
their school career so they could
go to any college they want to."

Generators top storm supply list


By Loma Jablonski
INI FLORIDA
Since the hurricanes of 2004
-and 2005, we have learned how
much we depend on electricity in
our daily lives. Without electricity
we quickly learned first hand what
it was like to live in Florida prior to
Edison inventing the light bulb. Oil
lamps, candles and flashlights were
worth their weight in gold.
Unless you were lucky enough
to have a gas stove, cooking had to
be done on a grill. It's amazing
what can be cooked on a gas or
charcoal grill.
Those of us living in the country
were quickly reminded that with-
out power our well pumps were
worthless. So we bathed in our
swimming pools, ponds and even
ditches. There were people clean-
ing up in the flooded parking lot of
North Lake Plaza.
In true pioneer fashion, we
lugged 5-gallon buckets of water
into our bathrooms to flush the toi-
lets.
We became experts on how
long a bag of ice could keep food
cold. Even more importantly, we
became our grandparents wait-
ing in long lines for food, water and
ice like they did during the Great
Depression.
Having been through all of this,
many residents of Okeechobee
decided that "enough is enough."
What we endured in the past has
educated us as to what we need to
have to be truly prepared for the
upcoming hurricane season.
Other than packing up and get-
ting out of the path of an upcoming
hurricane, the consensus of opin-
ion in Okeechobee is that one of
the most important items on a hur-
ricane preparedness list is a genera-
tor.
With generators so high on
everyone's list, now is the time to
purchase one if you haven't already
done so. The supply of generators
for sale in Okeechobee is currently
high. They are for sale in most local


stores. If you do purchase a new
unit, do not leave it in its box until
needed. Take it out of its box and
familiarize yourself with the unit.
Test it to make sure it works.
Follow the instructions in the
manual that came with the unit. If
you cannot get the generator to
operate properly, now is the time to
have it serviced. You will not be
able to have it worked on right
before an impending storm.
Local stores are already stocked
with hurricane supplies.
With all the generators being
purchased, it is extremely impor-
tant to use caution when operating
them. Generators can create haz-
ards for homeowners and electric
utility workers. Make sure to always
read and follow the manufacturer's
safety and operating instructions.
Carbon monoxide is a colorless,
odorless and tasteless poison gas. It
is a component of the exhaust from
a generator's engine. This gas is
deadly. Never run your generator
inside your home or garage. Only
run the generator outdoors in a
well-ventilated, dry area away from
the air intakes to your home.
Plug your individual appliances
into the generator using a heavy
duty, outdoor rated extension cord
with a wire gauge adequate for the
appliance load. Do not operate
more appliances and equipment
than the output rating of the gener-
ator; to do so will overload and
damage the generator and could
cause a fire.
If your generator is connected to
the house wiring, the home must
have a transfer switch installed by a
licensed electrician. A transfer
switch connects your house to the
generator and disconnects it from
the utility power. This will prevent
backfeeding, which energizes the
electrical circuits outside your
home.
Backfeeding usually occurs
when a generator is connected
directly to the electric panel or cir-
cuit in the home. Feeding power
back into the utility system during


an outage will energize the trans-
former serving the house and
could pose a serious problem to
crews working to restore power in
the area.
Use the following guide as a
rule of thumb when purchasing a
generator.
A 1,000 watt recreational gen-
erator is for boating, camping and
limited outdoor use.
A 5,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump and
microwave up to the capacity of
the unit.
A 7,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator, sump pump,
microwave and other various low
watt electrical devices up to the
capacity of the unit.
A 12,500 watt generator will
run limited lighting, radio, televi-
sion, refrigerator; sump pump,
microwave and other various low
watt electrical devices up to the
capacity of the unit.
In case you are not sure how
much wattage you use, the follow-
ing guide has some of the more
common household electrical
appliances and their wattage. The
RW is the running wattage or
amount of wattage required to run
the appliance, and the SW is the
starting wattage, or the amount of
wattage required to start the appli-
ance.

Always check the amount of
wattage the appliance requires
before plugging it into a generator.
If the box or paperwork of the
appliance does not list the wattage,
the formula to figure wattage is:
amps xvolts = watts.
As you can see, it is important to
choose the size of generator that is
right for you. It is also important to
only use those appliances that are
absolutely necessary for your basic
needs.
Generators are not meant to
totally take the place of the electric
company. They are meant to pro-
vide temporary basic electricity to
your home until power can be
restored.
Finally, don't forget that genera-
tors run on gasoline. Make sure that
you have enough gasoline to keep
the generator running for an
extended period of time. The
largest generator you can purchase
will do you no good without fuel to
run it. Read the instructions for
your generator to ascertain how
long the generator will run on a 5-
gallon can of gas.
Keep in mind, that if the power
is out in town, the gas stations can-
not pump gasoline. So, have
enough on hand to last several
days. Keep those gas cans in a dry,
well-ventilated place easily accessi-
ble after the storm passes.
Also, check to make sure that
the extension cords you use with
the generator are easily located and
in good repair.
Generators are definitely con-
venient and useful. Just remember
to use common sense and read the
directions before using them.


Creative people can learn to be organized

FCAT honors
Verna Cameron, Cynthia Boyce and Terrolyn Petttway (left
to right) were overjoyed at their children's (Tre'Nard Mor-
gan and Kendra Youn) reward for scoring the highest
FCAT score possible g. The ladies watched their children
exit Glade View Elementary School on a limousine ride to
lunch at the Cheesecake Factory in West Palm Beach on
Wednesday, May 30.


Do you feel that no one in your
family understands you? My heart
goes out to you! I know how you
have been put down because of
your imagination, creativity and
"sidetrackedness." We don't fit
the mold our family wants us to
fit. God knows how hard we have
tried to be what they wanted us to
be. Everybody just wants to be
loved. The problem is they don't
know how to love us and that is
not their fault. Our imagination
and creativity is our gift. That gift,
most of the time gets us side-
tracked and at that point, we are
criticized for not finishing what
we started. We flit from flower to
flower making the world a beauti-
ful place like the butterflies we
watch in the yard.
Here is the most exciting part
of our imagination and creativity;
we are very intelligent. So much
so that it might even scare our
family. We were not "Born Orga-
nized" but we can learn how to
be organized. But this organiza-
tion cannot be stuffed down our
throats. As children we were told
to go clean our rooms. Our brains
are so busy with creating that we


The "
Flylady

Cilley V



don't know how to clean a room.
Now here is the funny part. A
"Born Organized" person does
not know how to teach us to do
this either. They don't understand
themselves how it is done
because in the first place they
have never allowed anything to
get that messy. The other part of it
is that they just do and don't think
about it. I have watched "Born
Organized" People and they are
constantly puttering around the
house doing things. They flit
around with a purpose to put
things back into.the order they
have set up. We flit because we
don't know where to start and we
are trying to do too many things at


one time.
So how do we use our imagi-
nation and creativity to help us
learn how to flit with a purpose!
We have to practice staying
focused, even if it is only five min-
utes at a time. Then we have to
make it fun and it will get done.
Let me start by saying, "I am
not your mother demanding that
you go clean your room!" Now
here is the tough part. If you have
heard your mother's voice when
you have read my messages then
we are going to work hard to
remove that voice from your
head. You are an adult and this is
your home. I am not your mother;
I am your dear friend that you
have asked to help you. I am not
critical of the way you keep your
home, because I am just like you.
I have lived in clutter and CHAOS
too and I understand how the
clutter becomes a cocoon to iso-
late you from your imagination
and creativity.
We have been made to feel
guilty because of our gift of imagi-
nation. Well I am here to tell you
that our imagination is a powerful
tool to help us out of our cocoon.


If we can think it; we can do it. We
can take our idea and turn it into
whatever it is that we choose. We
just need someone to teach us
how to inake this happen without
the world falling apart around us.
Our homes are stifling our
imagination. Our little creative
minds have been stuffed into this
cocoon because of the guilt that
has been put on our little heads.
We are blessed to have an imagi-
nation. We fight hard to keep
from being stuffed into that
cocoon. This is why we rebel
against habits and routines. They
look too much like the "Born
Organized" people in our lives.
They are a tool that helps us to
emerge from our cocoon of guilt
and suffocation to find our true
joy in living.

Nit-pickers, wound lickers, or grace sticklers


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Out of the same situation,
there can be entirely different
reactions among people. Some-
one once classified the reactions
of people in these situations as
being nit-pickers, wound-lickers,
or grace-sticklers.
Anyone who has ever had to
deal with a child coming home
with a note proclaiming the pres-
ence of head lice knows the
phrase "nit-picking". The head
must be combed through and
meticulously combed, searched
for nits or tiny eggs of the louse.
When found, each nit must be
individually picked or pulled from
the hair it is attached to.
Unfortunately, many people
have perfected the art of nit-pick-


ing so competently that they feel
compelled to demonstrate their
skill in every situation they can.
Nit-pickers are
always noting
what is wrong
with some-
thing and
someone
rather than
what is right.
They have a
hard time
enjoying any- John
thing, especial- Hicks
ly anything that
isn't as perfect as they think it
should be.
An accomplished nit-picker
can burst any bubble or rain on
any parade. "Congratulations on
your graduation, such a shame
you couldn't have lost a few
pounds for the occasion."


"Thanks for preparing breakfast -
I guess this is coffee I'm pouring -
when I make coffee you can taste
it." Deflating joy, tarnishing tri-
umphs that's what nit-pickers do
best.
And then there are the wound-
lickers: In dogs and cats, repetitive
wound-licking can undo in a mat-
ter of minutes all the work a vet
has put in on a patient for days.
But wound-licking is not just limit-
ed to animals. There is something
self-destructively fascinating
about an open wound. We are
drawn to it, we want to mess with
it, re-examine it, then pull off the
scab a little at a time to see how it
is healing. Wound-lickers cannot
leave the situation alone, but
return to it again and again, often
reopening the wound.
In the midst of nit-pickers and'
wound-lickers, there are also the


grace-sticklers. These are the peo-
ple that celebrate victories and
lend support in times of defeat.
You will notice that they hoot and
holler when their child's T-ball
team plays the big game and
don't worry when the other team
scores 10 runs in a row. They tend
to give out hugs of joy in celebra-
tion and hugs of comfort in hard
times. It's not that they don't see
all of the imperfections in life; it's
just that grace sticks out in their
lives and enables them to focus
on the positives around them and
not the negatives.
In our lives as Christians we
have .a choice on how we act and
react. Someone once shared that
life is, "Ten percent of what hap-
pens to us and 90 percent of how
we react to it." How we act and
react can also change how others
act and react.


Gifts and staying in our fields; religious and otherwise


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
One person whom I met dur-
ing a phase of her illness called
me one day when she had got-
ten out of the hospital. She
shared with me that "My doctor
thinks I'm an alcoholic, but you
don't think I'm .I
an alcoholic,
do you?" The
way she asked ...
the question "*'
told me the
answer she
wanted. I had
only recently
met her; her
doctor had SamuelS.
been treating Thomas
her for years.
I happened to know the doc-
tor also; a man with a good rep-
utation in the community and
with great skills. I felt myself
being pulled in a direction that I
did not want to go. More than
that, I felt there was a person
who wanted to use religion for
her own selfish ends; use reli-
gion to avoid facing up to reality;
use religion to retreat from
health into sickness, going back-
ward instead of forward. When
this happens, religion becomes
a crutch, an excuse, destructive.
The inspiration for an answer


came and I countered, "Now
why would he ever think a thing
like that?" and began to think
about a long list of occasions
over the years that the doctor
would have known, times when
he might have been called out
during an episode of one sort or
another, the symptoms, the con-
cerns of family and loved ones.
The attempt seemed to be to be
able to say, "You may think I'm
an alcoholic but Reverend
Thomas doesn't think so."
Too many times people speak
in the name of religion, those
identified as religious leaders
included, who are out of their
field. They can do a lot of dam-
age when their words are justi-
fied by obscure quotations or
attempts to "do good" that are
misguided.
I listen. to many today who
speak outside of. their fields of
expertise and wonder what
movie stars know about politics,
or athletes know.about nutri-
tion, or clergy know about sick-
ness and health, or about
experts in "rehab" know about
social responsibility.
Scriptures speak of "gifts"
that come from God: apostles-
prophets-teachers but also those
who have gifts of healing, those
who have gifts of being able to
help others, those with gifts of
administration (1 Corinthians


12:28). They are:all regarded as
being in the Church; but their
expertise is a gift from God and
to be used to help others.
Problems arise when the less-
gifted speak in areas where they
are really not experts but claim
their authority because they
somehow feel called and thus
"gifted."
One day when I attended a
conference on healing, the pre-
senter told us about her praying;
laying hands on people and see-
ing them healed. Then she
added, "God can heal teeth too."
I wondered if she would want to
put her hands in a mouth, lay
her fingers on teeth or if she
washed her hands first, if she
really tried it. Then I thought
about the one.who lays hands
on my teeth, whose father was a
minister, who grew up in a
household of faithful people,
who attends church and attend-
ed dental school. He has a gift. It
is from God He uses his gifts to
do God's work and helps where
he is trained and prepared to
help, but knows his limits. Thus,
he can contribute to the greatest
good; doing his part and letting
others do their parts. His gift is in
healing, as the accountant is gift-
ed in helping businesses stay in
business and honestly reflecting
a state of affairs, as a judge
works to protect society and be
fair to those who come before

him, as a conservationist is in
making sure we have the
resources necessary for survival.
They are called to speak and act
where they know; this is a gift
from.God even if it is not always
acknowledged.
The people of God are also
called to speak and act; making
use of all of the gifts God makes
available to us whether in the
Church or without. When we
get it straight, we move forward
and are blessed; when we get it
wrong, we sure can cause a ter-
rible mess.

We have a chance to help peo-
ple focus on the blessings of grace
even in the hardships of life. Our
lives need to be tunnels and not
caves. A cave is an underground
area where one goes in and
comes out at the same place. A
tunnel, on the other hand, is
where one goes in and comes out
in a different place. If those we
come into contact with always
leave from their meeting with us
at the same place they went in,
then something is wrong.


Our actions and reactions in
the life we live need to help lead
people in the direction of the light
- knowing that the light at the
end of every tunnel is the light of
Christ. In the light of Christ, the
nit-pickers can be silenced and
satisfied. The wounds that the
wound-lickers tend to focus on
can be healed and made whole.
And all of us can come to more
fully realize the abundant wealth
of great things we share in the
grace of Christ Jesus our Lord.

Do you know when you teach a child? Area Church News in Brief


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
"I will not teach my child any
religion yet," remarked a man
walking with another. "I will let him
grow up and when he is old
enough to judge, he can see and
choose for himself."
They stopped at a second man's
garden plot. "I thought I wanted to
set out strawberry slips here this
spring," said the man, standing
there thoughtful "but you have
given me a new idea. I will wait
until August and then I will see
whether this garden really prefers
strawberry plants or whether it


"Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for
this is right. Honor thy father and mother; which
is the first commandment with promise; that it
may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long
on the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke not your
children to wrath; but bring them up in the nur-
ture and admonition of the Lord."
Ephesians 6:1-4


would rather have weeds in it."
Friends, the weeds will grow in
your child's heart unbidden.
"Foolishness is bound up in the


heart of a child," says Solomon. It
is never too soon to root them out
and plant good seeds instead and
to cultivate the good growth..

Cleaning up the muck
On Wednesday, May 30, Lake Okeechobee tied the record low of 8.97 feet. It has been
dropping since, setting new record lows. The low lake level has exposed many areas of
the lake bottom; allowing water managers to scrape muck from the dry lake bottom and
haul it off. The dried muck is being spreading on public and privately owned properties.

When weeds get a start, it is often
too late to do anything.
Jesus in the parable of the
sower said the good seed is the
Word of God. He said the seed
sown by the wayside is snatched
away by Satan before it has time to
bear fruit. The seed sown on soil
that has no depth will not bear fruit
for during times of trial it has no
roots to supply it with enough
strength to live and bear fruit.
"The seed sown among the
weeds is the seed sown into a heart
that is full of this'world's cares and
riches and the seed is choked to
death by these cares and riches and
does not bear any fruit." The good
soil that receives the good seed is
the heart that understands the
Word of God and acts upon it and
bears much fruit. As you can see
there are plenty of distractions in
this world to keep the good seed
from getting into young hearts and
causing youth to realize their true
purpose is to glorify God.
For this reason our Heavenly
Father holds fathers and mothers
responsible for the upbringing of
their children. Ephesians 6:1-4
says, "Children, obey your parents
in the Lord, for this is right. Honor
thy father and mother; which is
the first commandment with
promise; that it may be well with
thee, and thou mayest live long on
the earth. And, ye fathers, provoke
not your children to wrath; but
bring them up in the nurture and
admonition of the Lord."
Parents need to sow and nur-
ture early the good seed, the
Word of God. Remember, the
Bible says that what you sow is
what you reap.

PALM BEACH COUNTY -
With the start of the 2007 hurri-
cane season, the Palm Beach
County Consumer Affairs Divi-
sion is rushing to complete its
annual survey of the costs for
the "most used" commodities
should a storm threaten.
To assist in the enforcement
of the County's "Price Gouging"
Ordinance, the Consumer
Affairs Division conducts price
checks at local retailers to estab-
lish benchmark costs for numer-
ous items and services most
likely to be in high demand in
the event of a hurricane. With an
emergency declaration, the Con-
sumer Affairs Division is respon-
sible for enforcing the local ordi-
nance preventing excessive or
exorbitant charges for consumer
goods and services.
With the recent visits of
Frances, Jeanne and Wilma,
more attention was given to the
prices of generators, tarps, chain
saws, plywood and roof felt. The


division also is gathering the cur-
rent prices for services by stor-
age rentals, hotels and marinas
providing boat dry storage. The
surveys are conducted just prior
to the hurricane season.
The division surveys chain
stores, independent retailers and
both large and small businesses.
The stores surveyed represent
all regions of the county includ-
ing the Glades area.
Palm Beach County Con-
sumer Affairs cooperates with
both Broward and Miami-Dade
Counties in tracking the same
commodities for all of south
Florida. Should a state of emer-
gency be declared and price
gouging is suspected, residents
should contact PBC Consumer
Affairs at (561) 712-6600. More
information about price gouging
and essential hurricane links is
available at the division's Web
site: www.pbcgov.com/con-
sumer.

TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Community Affairs
today announced that it has award-
ed $1.4 million to two local govern-
ments in Hendry County to bring
new employers and jobs to area
residents. The grants, awarded by
the state through a competitive
process, will enable the communi-
ties to attract a mattress manufac-
turing facility and a medical profes-
sional complex that combined will
create an estimated 100 new jobs.
The funds, provided through the
Small Cities Community Develop-
ment Block Grant (CDBG) pro-
gram, will be used for infrastruc-
ture and more than half the newly
created jobs must go to workers
from low or moderate income
households. For the mattress man-
ufacturing facility, a $700,000 grant
to the City of Clewiston will provide


infrastructure in the form of street
improvements and associated
flood and drainage improvements.
Meanwhile, a $700,000 grant to the
City of LaBelle will provide neces-
sary water, sewer and street
improvements for a medical pro-
fessional complex that will house
an expanding dental practice.
"These facilities will be a
tremendous benefit to the people
of Hendry County and the sur-
rounding areas, producing jobs
while at the same time helping to
keep our communities safe and
our environment clean," said Com-
munity Affairs Secretary Tom Pel-
ham. "I am pleased that the CDBG
program can make such an impor-
tant difference in the lives of resi-
dents of these two communities."
The grant to the City of Clewis-
ton will fund a portion of the infra-


structure supporting the construc-
tion of an $8.5-million mattress
manufacturing facility within the
city's new industrial park. The
62,500-square foot facility is being
built by PranaSleep LLC, a sub-
sidiary of City Mattress, which has
eleven retail locations in the south-
ern part of the state. The manufac-
turing facility will employ an esti-
mated 80 people. Clewiston Mayor
Mali Chamness expressed the
city's appreciation for the grant,
saying, "This is a great success and
we are excited about the econom-
ic impact Pranasleep brings to our
community. Their presence will
have a'positive effect on our ability
to create many good paying jobs
within our new Clewiston Com-
merce Park and. ultimately
improve the local economy in this
region for years to come."


The grant to the City of LaBelle
will be used to extend water and
sewer lines to the site of the
LaBelle Professional Center. The
$2.6-million facility will employ
an estimated 21 individuals pro-
viding medical services for
LaBelle and Hendry County. In a
recent letter to the Florida Depart-
ment of Community Affairs
(DCA), Mayor RandalA. Bengston
said, "I would like to thank you in
advance for your continuous
efforts to provide funds to erect
the LaBelle Professional Center...
.Your program will provide need-
ed employment for our residents,
as well as (meet) the great need
for additional health care for our
citizens and visitors to the City of
LaBelle and Hendry County."

Hurricane Names


Since 1953, the National Hur-
ricane Center has designated
major 'storms by giving them
names. Prior to that time, storms
were referred to by date. Until
1979, only female names were
used. Since then, the Center
alternates male and female
names. The first storm of the
season starts with the letter A,
the second storm the letter B and
so on. The list skips the letters Q,
U, X,Y and Z.
Six lists of names are used to
rotate. Sometimes if a storm is
devastating, names are retired
from the list, out of considera-
tion for families of those killed in
a storm.

are encouraging Florida retailers
to prepare for even greater

ernor Crist. "While we hope for a
quiet hurricane season, the tax

the opportunity to be prepared for
any possibility."

opportunity to restock their disas-
ter supply kits. Chris Floyd of the

Make plans to prepare boat in event of storm


By Loma Jablonski
INI Florida
With the start of the 2007 hur-
ricane season upon us, now is
the time to start making plans to
safeguard your boat. A few min-
utes of preparation now could
save you thousands of dollars
and prevent a great deal of stress
in the event that we are hit with
a hurricane this season.
The following instructions
are only guidelines and may not
apply to every individual situa-
tion. The important thing to
remember is to keep calm and
use good judgment.
Gather all documents per-
taining to your boat including
insurance policies, a recent pic-
ture of your boat, the boat regis-
tration, an inventory of equip-
ment and a copy of the lease
agreement if the boat is stored at


a marina or storage facility. Keep
these documents in a safe place.
Have telephone numbers of the
marina, storage facility and
insurance agent readily avail-
able.
Keep a list of all items you
remove from the boat prior to
the storm. Include, if possible,
the make, model and original
cost of the equipment. Make
note of where you are storing
this equipment. Keep another
list of items that will remain on
the boat.
If you plan to move your
boat to safer ground, be sure to
check the tires, bearings and
axle on your trailer now. Have
everything in working order.
Know approximately how
long it will take to move the boat
and secure it. Remember, traffic'
will be heavy and supplies will

chobee was destroyed by Hurricane Frances shortly after

be at a premium prior to a hurri-
cane. If you are planning to
move the boat, give yourself
ample time to do so. If you are
keeping it at home, you will
need time to prepare it while
also preparing your home for
the storm. Do not cut yourself
short on time. Have the materi-
als to secure the boat on hand.
You may not be able to,purchase
them if a storm is coming.
Once you move the boat to
safe ground or if you are keeping
it at home on its trailer, you
should:
Lash your boat to the trailer
and place blocks between the
frame members and the axle
inside each wheel. Owners of
lightweight boats might want to
consider letting about half the
air out of the tires, then filling
the boat one-third full of water
to help hold it down. The blocks
between the frame and axle will
prevent damage to the springs
from the additional weight of the
water.
Tie your boat with heavy
lines to fixed objects. Pick a
location that allows you to tie it
from all four directions, because
hurricane winds rotate and
change direction. It can be tied
down to screw anchors secured
into the ground. Do not tie it to a
tree. As we found out last sum-
mer, even the sturdiest looking
trees can be blown down during
a hurricane.
If you intend to keep your
boat in the water, the following
should be adhered to:
If your boat is kept at a


marina berth or behind your
home in the water and you
intend to leave it there, double
all lines and rig crossing spring
lines fore and aft. Attach lines
high on pilings to allow for tidal
rise or surge. Make sure lines
will not slip off pilings. Inspect
pilings and choose those that
seem strongest and tallest and
are properly installed: The
longer the dock lines, the better
a boat will be a coping with high
tides. It is important to double
up on all lines and use chafe pro-
tectors at any potential chafe
points.
Cover all lines at rough
points to prevent chafing. Wrap
with tape, rags and rubber
hoses. Install fenders to protect
the boat from rubbing against
the pier, pilings and other boats.
Remove all moveable
equipment such as canvas, sails,
dinghies, radios, cushions,
biminis and roller furling sails.
Lash down everything you can-
not remove such as tillers,
wheels, booms, etc.
Assess the attachment of
cleats, winches and chocks.
These should have substantial
back plates and adequate stain-
less steel bolt sizes.
Batteries should be fully
charged and checked to ensure
their capability to run automatic
bilge pumps for the duration of
the storm. Consider backup bat-
teries. Cut off all devices using
electricity except bilge pumps.
Never leave a boat on davits
or on a hydro-lift.

Prepare for hurricanes by stocking up on supplies


With the start of hurricane sea-
son, people are starting to think
seriously about stocking up on sup-
plies and which supplies are neces-
sary.
Below is a list of must haves,
along with tips on storage.
Prepare a hurricane supply kit in
plastic containers with lids so they
will be portable yet easy to store.
Make a checklist of necessary items
and keep it handy with the contain-
ers. Recommended items to have
ready, according to the Southern
Region Headquarters of National
Oceanic & Atmospheric Adminis-
tration, (NOAA) include:
cash or travelers checks;
lantern with extra fuel;
first aid kit with bandages,
scissors, petroleum jelly, antiseptic
spray, hydrogen peroxide, antacids,
aspirin, thermometer, rubbing
alcohol and anti-diarrhea medica-
tion;
matches;
mosquito repellent;
food and supplies (at least a
three-day supply): drinking water
(1 gal/person/day), food (canned
or dried requiring no cooking or
refrigeration), manual can opener,
disposable eating utensils and
plates;


This hurricane season has many
homeowners scrambling to gather
supplies and prepare their house
for strong winds and pelting rains.
But even if the house appears
untouched, the rain and moisture
could have left a prime environ-
ment for mold. "Good House"
expert Matt Shipley provides tips
and advice on how to increase
awareness of the mold-vulnerable
areas on a roof and how to prevent
.these areas from allowing excess
moisture into a home.
Orlando Last year's hurri-
cane season left many houses
and buildings in rubble and
caused many more to be shut
down from increased levels of
mold growing inside. Unfortu-
nately, even after extensive
repairs, many of these buildings
will face the same moisture and
mold problems again this year.
Most of the water-vulnerable
areas on a house or building are
located on its roof. Taking a proac-
tive approach to guard against
wind-driven rain in the seven areas
on a roof and exterior of a house
will help reduce the amount of


Why Horse Owners
Need to Be Prepared

Disaster preparedness is impor-
tant for all animals, but it takes
extra consideration for horses
because of their size and their
transportation needs. It is impera-
tive that you are prepared to move
your horses to a safe area.
During an emergency, the time
you have to evacuate your horses
will be limited. With an effective
emergency plan, you may have
enough time to move your horses
to safety. If you are unprepared or
wait until the last minute to evacu-
ate, you could be told by emer-
gency management officials that
you must leave your horses behind.
Once you leave your property, you
have no way of knowing how long
you will be kept out of the area. If
left behind, your horses could be
unattended for days without care,
food, or water.
Horse Evacuation Tips
Make arrangements in
advance to have your horse trail-
ered in case of an emergency. If you
do not have your own trailer or do
not have enough trailer space for all
of your horses, be sure you have
several people on standby to help
evacuate your horses.
Know where you can take
your horses in an emergency evac-
uation. Make arrangements with a
friend or another horse owner to
stable your horses if needed.
Contact your local animal
care and control agency, agricul-
tural extension agent, or local
emergency management authori-
ties for information about shelters
in your area.
Inform friends and neighbors
of your evacuation plans.
Post detailed instructions in
several places-including the barn
office or tack room, the horse trail-
er, and barn entrances-to ensure
they are accessible to emergency
workers in case you are not able to
evacuate your horses yourself.
Place your horses' Coggins
tests, veterinary papers, identifica-
tion photographs, and vital informa-
tion-such as medical history, aller-
gies, and emergency telephone
numbers (veterinarian, family
members, etc.) in a watertight enve-
lope. Store the envelope with your
other important papers in a safe
place that can be quickly reached.

in during the upcoming hurricane
and rainy season.
"Good House" expert Matt
Shipley suggests leak guarding all
areas on the exterior of your house.
By reducing the number of areas
that water has to gain access to a
house, the chances of creating an
environment friendly to mold sig-
nificantly decreases.
"Although every house has
mold spores, they need the right
conditions in order to thrive," said
Mr. Shipley. "Mold requires a food
source, the right temperature and
moisture in order to grow into cata-
strophic proportions that put insur-
ance and homebuilding compa-
nies out of business and drive
homeowners from their homes."
The seven most vulnerable
areas on the exterior include:
Roof crickets
Roof valleys
*Ridge vents
Roof rakes to sidewalls
Roofs to walls
Housewraps or drainage planes
Window flashings


Keep halters ready for your
horses. Each halter should include
the following information: the
horse's name, your name, your
telephone number, and another
emergency telephone number
where someone can be reached.
Prepare a basic first aid kit
that is portable and easily acces-
sible.
There may be times when tak-
ing your horses with you is impos-
sible during an emergency. So you
must consider different types of dis-
asters and whether your horses
would be better off in a barn or
loose in a field. Your local humane
organization, agricultural exten-
sion agent, or local emergency
management agency may be able
to provide you with information
about your community's disaster
response plans.


The Red Cross website recom-
mends folding beach chairs for
sleeping in case you need to go to a

The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's website hosts a consumer
alert for keeping food safe during
and after a weather emergency that
was posted ahead of the 2004 hur-
ricane -season. The information
was made available to help reduce
the potential of foodborne illness
due to food spoilage from power
outages and other problems asso-
ciated with severe weather events.
Steps they recommend for food
safety include the following:
Keep an appliance ther-
mometer in the refrigerator and
freezer to help determine the safety
of food.
Make sure the freezer is at or
below 0 degrees F and refrigerator
is at or below 40 degrees F.
Freeze containers of water to
help keep food cold in the. freezer,
refrigerator or coolers if the power
goes out.
Freeze refrigerated items such


as leftovers, milk and fresh meat
and poultry that are not needed
immediately to keep them at a safe
temperature longer.
Plan ahead and know where
dry ice and block ice can be pur-
chased.
Store food on shelves safely
out of the way of contaminated
water in case of flooding.
Have coolers on hand to keep
refrigerated food cold if power is
out more than four hours.
Make/get ice cubes and gel packs
ahead of time for use in coolers.
Group food together in the
freezer. This helps the food stay
cold longer.
After the weather emergency:
Keep refrigerator and freezer
doors closed as much as possible
to maintain the cold temperature.
The refrigerator will keep
unopened food safely cold for
about four hours. A full freezer will
hold the temperature for about 48
hours 24 hours if it is half-full
and door stays closed.
Food may be safely refrozen if
it still contains ice crystals or is at 40

degrees F or below.
Never taste food to determine
its safety!
Obtain dry or block ice to
keep refrigerator and freezer as
cold as possible if the power is
going to be out for a prolonged
period of time. Fifty pounds of dry
ice should hold an 18-cubic-foot
full freezer for two days.
If the power has been out for
several days, check the tempera-
ture of the freezer with an appli-
ance or food thermometer. If the
food still contains ice crystals or is
at 40 degrees F or below, the food
should be safe.
If a thermometer has not
been kept in the freezer, check
each package of food to determine
its safety. If the food still contains ice
crystals, the food should be safe.
Discard refrigerated perish-
able food such as meat, poultry,
fish, soft cheese, milk, eggs, left-
overs and deli items after four
hours without power.
Drink only bottled water if
flooding has occurred.
Discard all food that came in


contact with flood water, including
canned goods.
Discard wooden cutting
boards, plastic utensils, baby bottle
nipples, and pacifiers.
Thoroughly wash all metal
pans, ceramic dishes and utensils
that came in contact with flood
water with hot soapy water and
sanitize by boiling them in clean
water or by immersing them for 15
minutes in a solution of chlorine
bleach per quart of water.
