Lake Level


Youth Summit has large turnout


Johnson: "Don't
stop thinking
about tomorrow"
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The first
Community Empowerment
through Education Youth Sum-
mit was a well-attended event,
with more than 300 people com-
ing out each day throughout the
three-day clinic, held at Lake
Shore Middle School from June


11 to 13.
Henrietta Johnson, the exec-
utive director for the H.E.A.R.T.
Project, said she was happy to
see the parents and children ac-
tively involved in various break-
out sessions.
She added that families were
able to express their deep feel-
ings and thoughts about what
the causes of teen violence are
and how families could .build
relationships among themselves
and throughout the Glades com-
munities.
"The youth were able to ob-


tain information about resources
available to them that they did
not know about," said Ms. John-
son.
LaToya Cunningham, a youth
summit participant, said that her
favorite segment was the Anti-
Gang/Gun Violence session.
Ms. Cunningham said that Of-
ficer Jessie Moreland presented
to the participants a synopsis of
how a typical rap superstar lives
his life.
In the presentation, Officer
Moreland briefly described the
lifestyle of up-and-coming rap-

At the Pahokee Recreational Center on Tuesday, June 19, 11-year-old Kevious Walker,

per Plies, who is originally from
Ft. Myers.
The officer said the rap-
per was a straight 'A' student
throughout his childhood and
later got into the music industry,
rapping about gang life.
Officer Moreland said that
Plies raps about gang life, but
doesn't actually live that lifestyle.
"The moral of the story was
that rappers don't always live
what they rap about," said Ms.
Cunningham. "It's just a way for
them to make money."
Ms. Johnson. weighed in on


the session regarding gang and
gun violence.
"You could be popular, but
you don't have to be consumed
by participating in bad things,"
said Ms. Johnson. "There.may be
times that you may have to stand
alone when it comes to making
positive decisions for yourself."
In another breakout ses-
sion entitled "Leadership: Youth
Struggles and Issues of Today,"
Sergeant Linda Hamilton said the
focal point of the segment was

Grant provides
additional funding
for project
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE At Mon-
day night's city commission
meeting, commissioners unan-
imously approved a project re-
lated to the Torry Island Boat
Locks.
The grant agreement, which
was between the Executive Of-
fice of the Governor's Office of
Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development and the city, was
in the amount of $1.5 million.
According to Ken. Robinson,
the city's director of utilities,
the city is continuing its work
designing and constructing a
lock to allow passage of small
craft vessels along the Hillsboro


Canal.
The Hillsboro Canal aligns
,on an east-west route, running
through the center of Belle
Glade and connecting to Lake
Okeechobee.
The lock design will accom-
modate one or more vessels up
to 80 feet in length with a beam
of 23 feet and a draft of seven
feet.
The proposed lock is bor-
dered by WCS 351/Hillsboro
Canal to the south, the Herbert
Hoover Dike/Lake Okeechobee
to the north, Lake Okeechobee
to the west and the Belle Glade
Golf Course to the east, accord-
ing to Mr. Robinson.
There will be two phases to
the boat locks project, and the
work is scheduled to be com-
pleted by Dec. 31, 2008.

offer testing
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Com-
prehensive AIDS Program
(CAP) and Glades Health Initia-
tive (GHI) are collaborating for
National HIV Testing Day, slated
for Wednesday, June 27.
The testing location will be
at the CAP building in Belle
Glade, with testing to be held
from 4:30 until 8 p.m., accord-
ing to officials.
Eugenia Elijah, a represen-
tative from CAP, said there will
also be Hepatitis C testing on-
site during the event. Both tests
are free to the public.
Ms. Elijah said that her
group is hoping to have at least
150 people come out and show
support for the occasion.
According to her, two kinds


of tests will be available to the
public a test called ORASURE,
which returns test results in two
weeks and ORAQUICK, a test
that gives the individual results
between 25 and 40 minutes af-
ter the test.
According to CAP officials,
in Palm Beach County, one
in 34 African-Americans, one
in 244 Hispanics and one in
492 Caucasians are living with
HIV/AIDS. In all, 6,555 of Palm
Beach County's 1.13 million
residents reportedly are living
with HIV/AIDS.
That equates to one out of
every 166 people in Palm Beach
County, according to officials.
It underscores the impor-
tance of individuals getting
tested.
Ms. Elijah added that there
will be no needles required
during the testing and the test-

Youth program aims to



step away from violence


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE For LaToya
Perry, who will be coordinating
a youth program entitled 'Be-
yond the Steps', this summer
will be a relatively busy time in
terms of interactions with the
youth in the Glades area.
In the past year, Ms. Perry
said that she lost two godsons
that she considered 'very close'
to her. Ms. Perry's godsons
were gunned down last year
by gang violence, according to
her.
Keeping that in mind, Ms.


Perry hopes that the youth out-
reach program will positively
influence participants through
education on the dangers of
gang violence, thereby reduc-
ing criminal activity in the
Glades area.
The six-week program, in its
first year of operation, will be-
gin on June 26, in Belle Glade.
The program ends on Aug.
3.
Ms. Perry said that she is
expecting about 60 children to
participate, with the target age
group from eight to 18 years
old.


Ms. Perry added that the
program should enable the
participants to increase their
self-esteem, which by the end
of the six-week session, they
should be able to exhibit ways
to express themselves in a non-
violent manner.
The youth will be learning
such topics as proper etiquette,
mannerisms, image, attire,
conflict resolutions, career de-
velopment, goal-setting and
self-government, according to
the program's coordinator.
Ms. Perry said that through-

This is what emergency crews found after receiving a call about an aircraft down at the Pa-
hokee Airport on Friday, June 16.


Engine 72 of the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and Medical Services Unit 42 arrived on the
scene when a small, single-engine plane had to exact an emergency landing due to a blown
engine in flight, Friday, June 16. Luckily the pilot of the plane was able to make a safe but
hard landing and there were no injuries


A blown landing gear tire
was a result of an emergency
landing made by the pilot of
a small, single-engine plane.
The aircraft suffered a blown
engine mid-flight over Paho-
kee on Friday, June 16.


Airplane

engine

blows out
By Mark Carr
PAHOKEE On the morning
of June 16, Palm Beach County
Fire-Rescue's Engine 72 in Paho-
kee was dispatched to a report
of a "sick person" with someone
supposedly lying on the ground
beside an airplane at the Paho-
kee Airport. Engine 72 responded
along with AMR Ambulance's
Med-42 and found a very different
situation. Upon arrival of Engine
72, a Civil Air Patrol Cessna 182, a
small single-engine airplane, was
found situated in the grass just off
the end of the runway. Firefighters
made contact with the plane's pi-
lot and passengers who reported
that the engine had experienced a
critical engine failure during flight.
The aircraft had blown its engine
and parts and oil were spewed
from the plane forcing the pilot
to make an emergency landing.
Without power, the pilot was able
to coast the small plane into Pa-
hokee Airport with a rough land-
ing on Runway 17. The impact of
the landing blew the right tire and
the plane skidded off the runway.
Fortunately, there were no inju-
ries. When the young, shaken up
passengers were asked how they
were going to get back home,
they replied, "We don't know, but
we are not flying!"

gine on the plane exploded as it flew over Pahokee.

Pahokee Airport, Friday, June 16 to avoid a potentially disastrous crash.

Jail medical contract is


awarded to ACHS Inc.


MIAMI Armor Correctional
Health Services, Inc. announced
on June 19, that it was selected
to provide the medical services at
the new Glades County Jail, com-
mencing July 1. The Glades Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office contracted with
Armor earlier this year to admin-
ister the medical program, which
includes general health care
and mental health services. The
Glades County Sheriff's Office will
showcase the facility at an open
house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on
Saturday, June 23, at the Glades
County Jail, 1995 East State Road


78 N.W, Moore Haven.
"The Armor team is honored
to have been chosen to work
alongside the Glades County Sher-
iff's Office and is eager to provide
the highest quality correctional
health care in the new facility,"
said Bruce Teal, Armor's chief
executive officer. "We have ap-
pointed Carol Shepard as the facil-
ity's health services administrator
and are confident that her experi-
ence as a correctional health care
practitioner and her leadership
skills will be valuable assets to the
Glades County Sheriff's Office."


Letters to the Editor


Postal workers
lack help
Dear Editor:
Here we go again with unac-
ceptable management practices
at the Post Office. I am a city carri-
er. I always hear customers com-
plaining there are not enough
clerks, long lines in the lobby and
the mail being delivered late. The
post office continues the prac-
tice of understaffing and refusing


to hire necessary help to get the
job done correctly. Please don't
blame the employees that do
their best every day. It is not their
fault and they do try their best to
provide customer service in every
way they can.
Carriers work hard and we are
proud to wear our blue uniforms.
Our raises do not coincide with
stamp price increases. Our union
contract has been up for renewal
since November of 2006 and has


been in negotiation since. It will
be going through arbitration in
the next few months.
One of the big disagreements
we have is the practice of hiring
unqualified contract help. We
have seen what this practice can
do to mail service. Some of these
contract workers have not been
delivering mail, taking it home on
Saturday and delivering it on Sun-
days or not at all. Some of them
have been hired without even go-


ing through security checks.
They are hired for less pay and
no benefits. Do you want some-
one with those credentials deliv-
ering your mail?
It is likely carriers will be out
picketing some time in June. We
would appreciate support from
our customers. We know how
important your mail is to you and
feel you should have qualified
carriers ensuring your delivery.

FCAT Meeting nets statement from Commissioner Blomberg


After the meeting of the Ex-
ternal FCAT Advisory Commit-
-tee Meeting, Florida State Com-
missioner of Education, Jeanine
Blomberg issued the following
statement:
"We conducted our second
Florida Comprehensive Assess-
ment Test (FCAT) External Adviso-


TALLAHASSEE Thou-
sands of Florida high school
students take a proactive ap-
proach to their education by
enrolling in the newly created
Student Academic Summer
Camps. These summer camps
were established for students
entering Advanced Placement
(AP) courses in the fall and are
intended to challenge students
academically and prepare them
for the advanced courses they
will be undertaking in the new
academic year.
"These numbers show us
that Florida's students are ready
to take a proactive position in
their preparation for the tough
coursework that Advanced
Placement courses' require,"
said Commissioner Blomberg.
"By readying our students with
knowledge in the summer, we
help them realize their full po-
tential in the fall."
This is the first year the Col-
lege Board Florida Partnership
and Department of Education
have offered the Student Aca-
demic Summer Camps and, to
date, 2,015 students have regis-
tered in the 60 locations across
the state. Some camps will run
for one week and others for up
to four weeks. Upon comple-
tion, students will be recognized
by their schools in an assembly
set for the fall.
"We are delighted with the
results of the student registra-
tion numbers," said Depart-
ment of Education Office of Eq-
uity and Access Director Monica
Hayes. "We will continue to en-
courage even more students to
take advantage of this academic
rigor through the Student Aca-


TALLAHASSEE Population
declines for some of the most
recognized and familiar birds
in Florida echo the disturbing
findings of a new analysis by the
National Audubon Society that
reveals how local and national
threats are combining to take a
toll on birds, habitat and the en-
vironment across the country.
"These are not rare or ex-
otic birds we're talking about,"
said Audubon Chairperson
and former EPA Administrator,
Carol Browner, "these are the
birds that visit our feeders and
congregate at nearby lakes and
seashores and yet they are dis-
appearing day by day."
The national study found that
populations of some common
birds nosedived over the past
forty years, with several down
nearly 80 percent. In Florida,
as in the rest of the country, the
Northern Bobwhite topped the
list, declining here a stunning
96%. The dramatic national de-
clines are attributed to the loss of
grasslands, healthy forests and
wetlands, and other critical hab-
itats from multiple environmen-
tal threats such as sprawl, ener-
gy development, and the spread
of industrialized agriculture. The
national study notes that these
threats are now compounded
by new and broader problems
including the escalating effects
of global warming and demand
for corn-based ethanol.
"Every species is different,
and their declines are a function
of many factors. But at the most
fundamental level, it all boils
down to the loss of suitable hab-
itat here in Florida." said David
Anderson, Executive Director
of Audubon of Florida "These
birds need fresh air, clean water
and open spaces. As do we all."
Species especially hard hit in
Florida include:
Northern Bobwhite, down
9 percent: Bobwhite are com-
peting with development for
upland habitats like sandhill
and pine flatwoods, and are dis-
appearing as these ecosystems
are turned into roads and shop-
ping malls.
Clapper Rail, down 81 per-
cent: Dependent on saltmarsh
habitat throughout the state,
this secretive bird's decline has
mirrored the decline in quantity
and quality of Florida's coastal
wetlands. The potential for sea
level rise associated with climate
change has particular implica-
tions for Clapper Rails and other
birds living in tidally influenced
habitats.

ry Committee meeting in Tampa.
The meeting was both productive
and insightful. It provided the De-
partment with specific direction
as we work to address issues re-
lated to the 2006 third-grade FCAT
reading results.
"Comments and discussion
from participants were both


demic Summer Camp program
next year."
Teachers also have oppor-
tunities to develop their skills
during the summer months.
Advanced Placement Sum-
mer Institutes (APSI) is an all-
expense-paid program avail-
able through the College Board
Florida Partnership that focuses
on subject-specific professional
development opportunities.
The institutes provide teachers
with the support and training
needed to teach AP courses and
to utilize Pre-AP teaching strate-
gies. Registration numbers for
This year have exceeded expec-
tations with more than 1,100
teachers registered to attend.
Florida leads the nation in AP
student participation. In 2006,
more than one third of Florida's
public high school students
participated in AP well above
the national average. That same
year, nearly 20 percent of the
public high school seniors grad-
uated passing one or more AP
exams, ranking Florida seventh
in the nation.
The College Board Florida
Partnership is a statewide col-
laborative effort involving all of
Florida's schools and districts.
Sponsored by the Florida De-
partment of Education, the
partnership offers professional
development for district and
school administrators, teachers,
and counselors. The partner-
ship assists educators in align-
ing middle and high school, as
well as university teaching and
learning to prepare students for
the challenging studies that ulti-
mately lead to college success.


percent: This black and white
seabird lays its eggs in shallow
scrapes on Florida's beaches.
Unfortunately, many beaches
are so heavily visited by beach-
goers that adults are repeatedly
flushed from their nests, leav-
ing chicks and eggs exposed to
extremes of temperature and
predators. '
American Kestrel, down 60
percent: This tiny bird of prey is
a common winter sight in the
interior of Florida, perched on
telephone wires and other van-
tages, scoping for prey. In the
breeding season, north Central
Florida's pineywoods host a
dwindling population, by many
accounts the. result of habitat
loss particularly the availability
of dead pines in whose cavities
the birds nest.
American Bittern, down
53 percent: A common bird of
the winter Everglades, this se-
cretive resident of freshwater
marshes is tied to the fate of
Florida's wetlands. In addition
to wetland loss, the Bittern suf-
fers from habitat degradation
due to pollutants and invasive
exotic plants.
"The good news is it's not too
late to stop the decline of these
birds, and in the process, protect
the quality of life for everyone
and everything that lives here in
Florida." said Mr. Anderson "We
need to save the wild places that
make Florida special, and the
lands we do develop, we need
to develop intelligently."
Audubon's Common Birds in
Decline list stems from the first-
ever analysis combining annual
sighting data from Audubon's
century-old Christmas Bird
Count program with results of
the annual Breeding Bird Survey
conducted by the U.S. Geologi-
cal Survey. "This is a powerful
example of how tens of thou-
sands of volunteer birders,
pooling their observations, can
make an enormous difference
for the creatures they care the
most about," said noted natural
history writer, Scott Weidensaul.
"Thanks to their efforts, we have
the information. Now all of us -
from birders to policy makers
- need to take action to keep
these species from declining
even further."

candid and supportive, clearly
demonstrating the commitment
of the group to meeting the chal-
lenges that lay ahead. By working
collaboratively with education
stakeholders around the state, in-
cluding school district superinten-
dents, testing experts, education
association representatives and
parents, I believe we will arrive
at an approach that will be in the
best interest of all those who are a
part of Florida's public education
system.
"Anomalies in last year's third-
grade FCAT reading results im-
pact the Department's ability to
calculate school grades, in par-
ticular the student learning gains
component. One of the primary
goals of Wednesday's meeting
was to gather recommendations
on how the Department should
proceed with the calculation of
school grades, which typically
are released during the middle of
June. Since we will not be rescor-
ing last year's third-grade read-
ing results until an independent,
expert review of. our conclusions
has been performed, it was im-
portant for us to develop alterna-
tive options for calculating school
grades and present those options
to the advisory committee. The
group consensus centered on the
option of calculating 2007 school


grades excluding last year's third-
grade reading results with provi-
sions that will safeguard schools
from being disadvantaged by this
exclusion. This option will be pre-
sented to the State Board of Edu-
cation next week for their review
and approval.
"The group also supported
a recommendation to the State
Board of Education for a one-year
suspension of the school grades
component requiring at least half
of a school's lowest-performing
students those in the bottom 25
percent -'to make learning gains.
This proposed change would
need to be approved by the State
Board of Education next week
and would only impact the 2007
school grades calculation.
"However, this temporary
suspension, or any future, long-
term changes, should in no way
be viewed as a lowering of stan-
dards. Currently, the performance
of a school's lowest 25 percent of
students accounts for a quarter
of a school's grade. The perfor-
mance of these students is and
will continue to be a vital part of
the school grades calculation. Ul-
timately, we will bring before the
State Board of Education a recom-
mendation for a new approach to
this component of school grades
that will ensure schools focus


their efforts on their struggling
students, are recognized for out-
standing progress and held ac-
countable through a method that
is fair and reasonable.
"Further discussion revolved
around the effects last year's
third-grade FCAT reading results
would have on calculating the
Adequate Yearly Progress require-
ment of the No Child Left Behind
Act. While several options were
discussed, to which the advisory
committee responded positively,
no decisions can be made until
the Department presents these
options to the U. S. Department of
Education and receives guidance
from the federal government.
"Additionally, we discussed the
subject of teacher performance
pay and tools the Department has
pledged to provide school districts
to assist in the implementation of
performance pay. Districts have
flexibility in how they have de-
cided to put performance pay for
teachers into practice; however,
some districts requested student
learning gains data from the De-
partment to aide them in this
implementation. The Department
remains committed to providing
school districts with the promised
technical help and assistance they
requested. We will make data
reflecting student learning gains


available to those districts that
wish to use it in their performance
pay plans.
"Finally, we asked the group
to continue discussion on the for-
mation of an independent, expert
review team to examine our find-
ings and provide their own analy-
sis of the results. We presented
a list of potential experts to the
group along with several possible
scenarios on how the team could
be formed. After a detailed discus-
sion, it was decided that a smaller
subgroup of the committee, com-
prised of data and testing experts
and led by Brevard Public Schools
Superintendent Richard DiPatri,
would be formed to study the list
and make recommendations to
the rest of the advisory commit-
tee.
"The FCAT is an important
part of Florida's education system
and I remain committed to keep-
ing this review process open and
transparent. With the continued
assistance of the FCAT External
Advisory Committee and by es-
tablishing an annual, independent
review of all future FCAT results,
I believe we can only strengthen
our nationally-recognized assess-
ment system and inspire confi-
dence in a tool that ensures our
students are learning."


Summer food service available for lunch


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Education (DOE)
is reminding parents that children
who are eligible to receive free or
reduced-price meals during the
school year can also receive meals
during the summer. Through the
Summer Food Service Program
(SFSP), operated by the U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture and ad-
ministered in Florida by the DOE,
qualified students can continue
to receive nutritious meals during


the summer months when most
schools are closed.
"Proper nourishment supplies
children with the fuel they need to
learn," said Education Commis-
sioner Jeanine Blomberg. "Pro-
grams such as the Summer Food
Service Program help to continue
the learning process year round
by providing quality, wholesome
meals when children are out of
school."
The SFSP was established to


ensure that children in needy ar-
eas could continue to receive nu-
tritious meals during school vaca-
tions that are comparable to those
served throughout the school
year. Established in 1968, the pro-
Sgram is operated locally by ap-
proved public or private nonprofit
sponsoring organizations under
annual program agreements with
the DOE. Sponsors receive federal
reimbursement from the DOE to
cover the administrative and op-


rating costs of preparing and
serving free meals to children that
meet the eligibility requirements
of the SFSP.
For more information on the
program, or to find out if your
child qualifies, contact the Florida
Department of Education, Food
and Nutrition Management at 1-
(800) 622-5985, or visit them on-
line at www.fldoe.org/fnm/sum-
merfood.


Public Health Institute to receive $1 M Seed Grant


WEST PALM BEACH The
Quantum Foundation is an-
nouncing a three year grant total-
ing over $1 million in seed fund-
ing for the Florida Public Health
Institute (FPHI). This is one of
the largest grants Quantum will
make in 2007.
"With the leadership it has
put in place, the Florida Public
Health Institute has the potential
to be one of the most creative
ventures of its kind in the nation,
and.we are excited about the op-
portunity to partner with others
in helping to bring this project to
fruition," Paul Gionfriddo com-
mented. "We have been willing
to put considerable resources
into it because we trust both the
vision and capabilities of the part-
ners who have been involved in
developing these plans for the
last several years."
Quantum's leadership sees the
FPHI as part of its overall strategy
to invest in health-related initia-
tives that develop coordinated
systems of care in the areas of
care access, disease prevention,
and health promotion.
"The promotion and devel-
opment of the county's public
health infrastructure has long
been a priority of Quantum," Mr.
Gionfriddo added. "By assuring
that the Institute will be located
in Palm Beach County, we also
assure that our residents will con-
tinue to have access for years to
come to some of the best public
health services available. Under
the leadership of Dr. Jean Mal-
ecki, public health has played a
major role in providing access
to health care, health profession-
als training, and emergency re-
sponse over the past years, and
this Institute furthers that vision
in important ways."
In recent weeks, FPHI has
announced the appointment of
C. Earl Fox, MD, MPH, research
professor of epidemiology and
public health at the University of
Miami Miller School of Medicine,
as its Executive Director, and
announced that it has received
grants from the University of Mi-
ami, the Brumback fund, and an
Emerging Public Health Institutes
grant through the Robert Wood
Johnson Foundation and the Na-
tional Network of Public Health
Institutes. It has long been a pri-
ority project of the County Health
Department, which approached
Quantum to support the project.
"Our grant will total $1,050,000
over three years, and provide
support for core staffing of the
Institute," Mr. Gionfriddo added.
"In the coming weeks, some of
the partners involved with the
Institute, including universities,
county and local officials, and
FPHI leaders, will be announcing
an ambitious plan of activities,
now being finalized, for the next
three years. We will play a part in
that announcement, and look to
support these partners in realiz-
ing their vision over the coming
months and years."
Quantum concentrates its


grant making in several areas: to
assure that all Palm Beach Coun-
ty residents have access to quality
health care at reasonable costs;
to improve the quality of care and
f ii


provide support for people with
chronic health conditions; and
to promote healthy communities
and life styles through education-
al programming. Since inception


the foundations with assets of
$183 million has distributed over
$66.6 million for health, educa-
tion and community betterment
programs.

Health Dept.


LABELLE As drought con-
ditions across the state continue,
the Hendry/Glades County Health
Department recommends resi-
dents remain calm if they notice
temporary changes in the color,
odor and taste of their well water.
While these changes may cause
water to taste or smell bad, they
typically do not affect human
health.
A drought is a period of unusu-
ally dry weather that persists long
enough to cause serious prob-
lems such as crop damage and/
or water supply shortages. About
90 percent of the state's drinking
water comes from groundwater,
of which approximately 20 per-
cent is from private wells. Many
businesses and homeowners rely
on potable wells and may expe-
rience problems with their water
quality and/or water supply dur-
ing this drought.
SWhat can you do if your po-


ur


table well is affected?
Well dries up


If your well goes dry, con-
tact a local water well contractor
for assistance on how to resolve
the problem. There are several
options including: drilling a new
well, or lowering or replacing
your well pump or drop pipe.
Well water changes
You may detect changes in
the color, odor or taste of your
well water. This may be due to
increased levels of iron, sulfide
gas or salt. Higher concentrations

Are you certain? Do you need a doctor?


Sometimes it's obvious that
you need to call a doctor pro-
fuse bleeding, chest pains and
other extreme symptoms make
that pretty clear. But there are oth-
er indications that people some-
times ignore and ignoring signs
of serious health problem can be
deadly. The Mayo Clinic recently
released a list of indications that a
person should immediately con-
sult a doctor.
Unexplained weight loss: A
high percentage of Americans are
overweight. So, it's not surprising
that many people don't consider
weight loss a cause for concern.
However, losing weight when you
are not dieting or increasing your
exercise routine may indicate a
health problem such as depres-
Sion or even cancer.
Persistent fever: A low grade


A
Healthier
Life

with Katrina Elsken

fever might not seem like a big
problem, but a fever that lasts
more than a week should be
checked out. A fever can indicate
an infection somewhere in your
body.
Shortness of breath: Dif-
ficulty breathing can be due to
anxiety or panic attacks, or due
to asthma, heart problems or a
.blood clot.
Unexplained change in


bowel movements: If you experi-
ence digestion changes, it can be
due to serious health problems
such as diabetes or colon can-
cer. If you have bloody diarrhea
or even mild diarrhea for more
than a week, consult your doctor.
Constipation can also indicate a
health problem. If constipation
lasts more than two weeks, the
Mayo Clinic recommends con-
sulting a doctor.
Mental health changes:
Changes in behavior, mood
swings or disorientation may indi-
cate infection, head injury, stroke,
low blood sugar or a medication
problem.
New or more severe head-
aches: Sudden and severe head-
aches may indicate stroke, blood
vessel inflammation or brain tu-
mor.


Loss of vision: Even tempo-
rary loss of vision can indicate
a serious problem. Any sudden
change in vision should be imme-
diately checked by a doctor.
Flashes of light: The sensa-
tion of flashing lights can indicate
the beginning of retinal detach-
ment.
Feeling full after eating very
little: Loss of appetite or feel-
ing full after eating just a small
amount may indicate serious gas-
trointestinal problems.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."


More FEMA funds will come to states


SFWMD Board approves

services budget


WEST PALM BEACH The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) approved up to
$350 million over three years
for general engineering and
professional services as part
of a comprehensive package
to advance environmental and
capital improvement works.
The action streamlines the de-
livery of engineering services by
authorizing the District to use a
pool of pre-qualified companies
for dredging and bank stabiliza-
tion; surveying and mapping;
dam design and safety; full ser-
vice engineering; environmen-
tal engineering, planning and
permitting; water supply and
water resources; electrical and
mechanical engineering; model-
ing; construction management;
communications engineering
and civil structural engineering.
The District issued a, request
for proposals in the 11 primary
disciplines this past December,
receiving 367 proposals that met
its solicitation criteria. Follow-
ing an extensive evaluation, the
District recommended working
with 60 individual firms as prime
contractors for these services.
Over the next several months,
the District will enter into ne-
gotiations with the approved
companies, execute contracts
and begin issuing work orders
that will detail costs and specific
tasks for completion.
"The District is using the ex-
pertise and resources of the pri-
vate sector to improve efficiency,
streamline projects and ensure
continued momentum for proj-
ects like Everglades restoration,"
said SFWMD Procurement Di-
rector Frank Hayden. "The Dis-
trict used a fair, transparent and
consistent procedure, driven by
the law, to evaluate the expe-
rience, knowledge and man-
agement capabilities of all the


candidates. This award process
not only encourages an open
and competitive environment
among all qualified businesses,
large and small, but also ensures
that our communities and the
natural system benefit from our
investments sooner."
The District followed a solici-
tation process governed by the
State of Florida's Sunshine and
Procurement laws. Additionally,
Florida's Consultant's Competi-
tive Negotiations Act requires
that government agencies fol-
low specific procedures for an-
nouncing and procuring certain
professional services and evalu-
ating firms as qualified contrac-
tors. The Act also requires that
the agency negotiate a contract
with the most qualified firms at
fair, competitive and reasonable
compensation.
In one of the first solicitations
that included the SFWMD's new
Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
program, 168, or 54 percent, of
the 309 participating prime con-
tractors and their subcontrac-
tors. are certified by the District
as SBE vendors. In addition, 19,
or 32 percent, of the 60 firms
selected for the 104 prime con-
tracts are SBE-certified compa-
nies; and 81, or 26 percent, of
the participating firms are re-
ceiving work from the District
for the first time.
The District launched its SBE
program last August to allow
more small businesses to par-
ticipate in District contracting.
Firms certified with the District's
SBE program also are added to a
directory that is viewed by other
government agencies and large
contractors in the region.
"The South Florida Water
Management District has taken
deliberate steps to ensure that
the contracts it awards reflect
the diversity of the communities
it serves," added Hayden.


: WASHINGTON, D.C. Un-
der legislation signed by Presi-
dent Bush, the U.S. Department
bf Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) will deliver additional
federal disaster assistance to sup-
plement sta[e.ciid local recovery
efforts impacted by the 2005 hur-
ricane season. The bill allows for
additional funding to states spe-
cifically under the Agency's Pub-
lic Assistance and Other Needs
Assistance programs.
The increase in federal as-
sistance is being made available
to Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi,
Florida and Alabama to cover
costs in connection with hur-
ricanes Katrina, Wilma, Dennis


and Rita.
"FEMA remains committed to
assisting in the recovery of these
states hardest hit by the hurri-
canes," said FEMA Administrator
David Paulison. "This supplemen-
tal funding provides the agency a
greater ability to continue to re-
duce the burden on the affected
communities."
The increased federal assis-
tance was authorized on May 25
when the President signed H.R.
2206, "U.S. Troop Readiness, Vet-
erans' Care, Katrina Recovery,
and Iraq Accountability Appropri-
ations Act of 2007" (Public Law
#110-28).
Under FEMA's Public Assis-
tance Program, the federal share


of eligible projects to rebuild
infrastructure and replace criti-
cal assets is set at a minimum
75 percent federal funding, with
state and local governments pro-
viding the additional 25 percent.
Following certain extreme situa-
tions where state and local hard-
ships necessitate, the cost-share
has been amended to 90 percent
federal funding with a 10 percent
state and local match. This recent
provision requires the federal
government to cover 100 percent
for all eligible projects under the
Public Assistance Program for the
designated disasters.
FEMA is in the process of co-
ordinating the adjustment to each
project for all eligible disasters.


This will be a seamless process
for the impacted states, requiring
no additional work on their part.
For FEMA's Other Needs Assis-
tance program, under which ad-
ditional aid is provided to individ-
uals.and households impacted by
disasters, the state is required, by
law, to provide 25 percent of the
costs. The recent legislation also
requires the federal government
to pay 100 percent of those costs
for these specific disasters. FEMA
will be reimbursing eligible states
for the cost share of the program
already paid to FEMA and any
outstanding bills related to these
events will be canceled.


Mosquito population explosion predicted


TALLAHASSEE The drought
plaguing Florida has had one
benefit: a significant drop in the
mosquito population that is usu-
ally seen this time of year. But
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson is urging residents to pre-
pare for that to change. As soon
as the normal rain patterns return,
Florida is likely to see a mosquito
population explosion.
The lack ofwater has prevented
eggs from hatching. But mosquito
eggs from certain species can be
very resilient, lying in wait for the
next heavy rain for up to several
years. When the wet weather ar-
rives, all the eggs hatch at once,
creating a huge increase in the
number of pesky pests.
Mr. Bronson said people need
to keep that in mind and be ready
for a possible onslaught of mos-
quitoes and with them the poten-
tial for mosquito-borne illnesses.
The Commissioner is urg-
ing horse owners to make sure
that their animals are vaccinated
against two of the diseases -
West Nile Virus (WNV) and East:
ern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).
"So far there this year there
have been no reports of human
cases of mosquito-borne illnesses
in Florida and we've had five EEE
cases in horses compared with
a high of 207 cases in 2003," Mr.
Bronson said. "We haven't seen
any West Nile cases either and I
hope with proper protections we
can continue this trend."
In addition to WNV and EEE,
mosquitoes can transmit St. Louis
Encephalitis and malaria.
Floridians and visitors can pro-
tect themselves against mosquito
borne disease by taking common-
sense steps, including:
Limit time outside during

dusk and dawn when mosquitoes
are most active.
Wear long-sleeved shirts and
pants to cover skin and reduce the
chance of being bitten.
Eliminate standing water in
yards, such as in birdbaths, kiddie
pools, old tires and other recepta-
cles. Stagnant water is an excellent
breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Use insect repellent that con-
tains DEET, which is an effective
repellent.
Horse owners are also urged
to check with their veterinarian to
make sure that their animals have
received current vaccinations
against WNV and EEE, and that


these shots are kept up to date.
"Florida's mosquito control
districts have done a tremendous
job with ongoing monitoring of
mosquito populations and taking
action when necessary," Bron-
son said. "But ultimately, it is up
to people to take steps to protect
themselves and their animals from
mosquito-borne diseases."
Across Florida, there are 56
mosquito control districts that
routinely conduct proactive mos-
quito surveillance with specific
and effective research. They have
improved methods of controlling
mosquitoes, improved identifi-
cation of mosquito species that


transmit disease, established pro-
cedures for the early detection of
new mosquitoes, and researched
environmental factors that make
mosquito disease outbreaks more
likely.

quito-borne diseases and pre-
vention, consumers can call the

tion, so they could make rational
decisions and judgments from a
variety of positive aspects of life.
"Through education, young
people could exhibit good deci-
sion-making habits from such
things as a knowledge base, a
positive culture, self-realization,
moral ethics which deal with
searching for the truth, justice
and equality, embracing norms
and values of a positive nature
and being able to find that inner
purpose of what they're on Earth
for," said Sgt. Hamilton.
The sergeant added that to de-
velop of these skills and put them
to use are key ingredients of be-
coming good leaders.
"The skills that we teach the
youth to develop for themselves
will enable them to lead their
communities, schools, families,
team sports, churches, organiza-
tions and one's own life," said
Sgt. Hamilton. "Once they pull
this together, they could enrich
their lives."
State Attorney Renelda Mack
co-presented the segment with
Sgt. Hamilton, speaking about
how the young people of the
1960's made positive changes in
their communities.


Thursday, June 21, 2007


The state attorney reminded
the participants of 1960's lead-
ers who made changes through
means of on-violence, such as
Claudette Colvin, Rosa Parks and
Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Ultimately, the state attorney
challenged today's youth to make
their own changes in the struggles
that currently exist around them.
Ronald Faustin, a youth sum-
mit participant from Southwest
Belle Glade Weed and Seed,
-made a youth presentation on the
event's first day. He spoke about
the impending gang violence in
the Glades communities and how
there are not enough role models
in the Glades area for children to
look up to.
After the presentation, Mr.
Faustin said the young showed a
lot of concern about violence in
the Glades area.
"What amazed me was how
the youth were so concerned
about the state of our communi-
ty," said Mr. Faustin. "They asked
a variety of questions on how we
could change our community and
make it feasible."
.Ms. Johnson was also amazed,
adding that the youth summit
was able to reach many people
outside of the Glades area.

bring out people from other areas
on South Florida and were able to
show them that we have lots of


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
A true symbol of the deep
South, one of the most stunning
sights in a Florida sky is the Swal-
low-tailed kite in flight. With a
wingspan of up to four feet, the
swallow-tailed is easily identified
with its sharply contrasting colors
and deeply forked tail. Its head
is white as well as its chest and
belly, while the back, wings and
tail are jet black.
This is the time of year when
the swallowed-tails come back,
not to Capistrano, but to Florida,
Glades County in particular where
more of them congregate in the
area of Fisheating Creek than any-
where else in the world.
So far this year many have
been spotted dipping, diving and
dancing over Hardee and DeSoto
Counties as well as Lee, Hendry,
Highlands, Glades and others.
They prefer pine scrubs, mesic
hammocks, mixed forests of
pines and hardwoods, sand hills
and agricultural environments.
Their numbers increase daily for a
period of time and they'll be with
us well into September.
Their antics in air are purely
stunning, especially against a
backdrop of Florida's cobalt sky.
By watching closely and often,
swallow-tails can be seen feeding
in flight and drinking on the wing,
skimming across the surface of


ponds and streams and rivers like
a swallow. Its favorite foods are
various insects, including grass-
hoppers, snakes, frogs, lizards,
and mammals.
With its wings in a flat posi-
tion, kites soar to astounding
heights, then as if poised in flight
trying to decide what to do next,
they often dive rapidly straight
down, then pull out of the dive in
horseshoe fashion, only to repeat
the scenario time and again. No
ballet could be more artistically
choreographed than that of the
swallow-tailed. kites. Their ex-
traordinary acrobatic flights set
this bird apart from all others.
Kites are the most graceful of all
North American hawks.
An extremely agile flyer, kites
often collect sticks with their feet
as they fly, not unlike Ospreys.
They are semi-social birds, at
times sharing the same territory
with their kin.
Both the male and female
kite build the nest, preferably on
a platform of some sort in very
tall pines and cypress trees. They
produce only one brood a year;
both male and female feed their
young. Their nesting season is
from March through June.
Its beauty and
economical benefits
The swallow-tailed kite is ex-
tremely important to Florida,
and again in particular to Glades


County, not only for its inherent
beauty but also for its economic
value. The roosting of astronomi-
cal numbers of kites on Fisheat-
ing Creek every Spring is a world-
class phenomena that could
attract bird watchers from all over
the world to come and observe
these beautiful birds in their natu-
ral habitat.
Bird watching is an activity on
which more money is spent than
on most major sports includ-
ing football and baseball. The
amount of money spent on bird
watching is huge which could
be an economic boon to Glades
County. As we look for clean ways
to preserve the natural beauty
and wonders of Glades County,
we need to consider the priceless
value of the swallow-tailed kite.
And to think these birds give all
and costs Floridians nothing. This
is part of our natural heritage that
comes to us without cost.
If we want the swallow-tails
to continue coming here we
must protect hardwood bottom-
lands from development, and we
must replant and restore cut-over
acres back to pinelands. To sus-
tain healthy populations of this
elegant raptor it is absolutely es-
sential that we maintain these
habitats for them.
After all, where else can we
simply look up and see such
splendid, magnificent perfor-
mances that are completely
free.


Hoot busted in burrowing owl case


When Patricia Hoot-McLeod
had a construction worker de-
stroy an active Florida burrowing
owl nest to make way for a new
housing development in Cooper
City, she probably didn't real-
ize that an astute neighbor was
watching.
The man had noticed the nest
and a pint-sized Florida burrow-
ing owl standing at its entrance
on May 4. Three days later, the
nest was gone. He reported the
violation to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC).
Hoot-McLeod was working as
a consultant for PH Consulting
Inc., an environmental company
hired by the developer of the
Darlington Park sub-division to
provide guidance on the environ-
mental issues dealing with the
nest. She maintained a log from
April 25, to May 8, document-
ing the dates she observed owls
at the nest. The last entry stated
that after 10 hours of rain on May
6, the site was opened to check
for owls. Then she had a worker
collapse the nest.
Although the owls' breeding
season normally ranges from


Feb. 15, through July 10, state
and federal permits are required
year-round before an active or
inactive nest can be removed or
destroyed. Hoot-McLeod did not
have such a permit to destroy the
nest.
"She had gotten a permit in
the past, so she knew it was re-
quired by law. The FWC will not
stand for such a blatant abuse of
a protected species and I com-
mend the person who reported
it," said FWC Major Brett Nor-
ton.
Hoot-McLeod, 48, of Fort Lau-
derdale, was charged with one
count of destroying a burrowing
owl nest, a second-degree mis-
demeanor.
The Florida burrowing owl, a
small bird that digs its burrows
in open, treeless areas, is classi-
fied as a species of special con-
cern by the FWC. This means
burrows, owls and their eggs are
protected from harassment and/
or disturbance by state law. Bur-
rowing owls are protected by the
federal Migratory Bird Treaty Act,
as well.
The owls use burrows year-
round for roosting during the


winter and for raising young
during the breeding season. Bur-
rows extend four to eight feet un-
derground.
The public can report wild-
life law violations to the FWC's
Wildlife Alert Hotline at (888)
404-FWCC.

summit served as a great benefit
for everyone who came out.
"The Youth Summit was a

The Deterioration of the American principle


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we draw near the 231st
Birthday of our Nation we need
to take a long, hard look at our-
selves.
Our nation is being enveloped
by a cancer which is slowly but
surely ravaging its ideals and eat-
ing at its very vitals.
Today in America we have:
1. Policy without principle:
Because it has become neces-
sary for us to deal with godless
countries that have no scruples
concerning right and righteous-
ness, we often find ourselves dip-
ping our banners. We are guilty of


stooping to the level of some of
their infamous tactics in order to
accomplish our aims.
2. Wealth without work: We
are being enveloped by the false
philosophy that we can get some-
thing for nothing. The Bible says,
"The soul of the sluggard desireth
and hath nothing; but the soul
of the diligent shall be made fat
(Proverbs 13:4)".
3. Industry without influence:
America has been attempting to
buy her way and in many instanc-
es the countries she has helped
have turned against her and now
hold her in utter contempt.
4. Comfort without con-
science: Great multitudes, includ-


ing many so-called Christians, are
quick to enjoy their comforts at
the expense of others. They are
not willing to pay their way (taxes
to sustain) to the government,
nor are they willing to share the
burdens of carrying the Gospel of
Christ to the world.
5. Comprehension without
character: Men have grown in
knowledge with each succeed-
ing generation. Knowledge has
increased many-fold; but indiffer-
ence and immorality abound on
every hand.
6. Science without sagac-
ity: Science has advanced almost
beyond our understanding; yet


some of the greatest scientists
have missed the most important
thing of all God and the wis-
dom only He can give.
7. Service without sacrifice:
Such service is half-hearted and is
of little effect.
Take a look at the ten things
that make a pagan nation includ-
ing:
1. Death of religious fervor. 2.
The decay of family ties. 3. Inor-
dinate desire for luxury. 4. Cheap-
ness of human life. 5. Practice of
sex deviation and perversion. 6.
Development of pornography. 7.
Increase of drunken reveling. 8.
Tendency toward government by


When the chips are down, the buffalo is empty


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There's nothing like stepping
in a warm cow pie to realize that
some life expe-
riences really
stink. Super-size
it and you have
a buffalo chip
experience.
There's a sto-
ry of a little bird
that got caught
in a freeze and Pastor
couldn't fly. He John Hicks
was about to
freeze to death on the ground
when a buffalo came by and
dropped a big pie right on him.
I don't know aboutiyou, but
I can relate to that experience.
Things are going rough and just
when I think things can't get any
worse plop! a big stinky one is
dropped on me.


I would like to say that God
makes life easy for all those who
love Him. But it simply is not true.
Life happens. And sometimes life
can be terribly, terribly difficult,
even for those who love Jesus.
Most of the time we take life
for granted and view it as a given.
And within life there are cow pie
and buffalo chip experiences. For
many it's not so much that we
"have life to live" as that "we have
to live life."
But let's get back to the little
bird. Covered with the steam-
ing buffalo chip up to his neck,
he began to warm up. Feeling a
lot better, the bird began to shift
around, and then burst out in
song. A passing fox happened to
hear him and plucked him out of
the pile.
The moral of this little tale is
that being dumped on isn't neces-
sarily a bad thing and being pulled
out of a situation isn't always the


best thing for us.
Sometimes we will go through
a difficult experience and it will
make us stronger. Often we'll have
a new appreciation for our family
and friends. More often than not,
we'll grow to rely on the promises
of God. Jesus has told us, "In this
world you will have trouble. But
take heart! I have overcome the
world." (John 16:33)
, We cannot know all of God's
plan and purpose, but this we
can know: Life is hard, but God
is good, because life with God is
filled with promise, and in him
we have a friend who is able to
help us be more than conquerors
in life's situations. (Romans 8:37-
38)
So, what are we to do when
we step in life's cow pies or get
dumped on? We are to go on.
We are to do what we can do.
We pick up the pieces and go
forward the best we can, trusting


that God, family and friends will
help us. We take inventory and
realize anew the really important
things and people in our life and
embrace them. We turn to God
and trust in His providence.
I can relate well to this anony-
mous quote: "I asked God for
strength that I might achieve; I
was made weak that I might learn
humbly to obey. I asked for health
that I might do great things; I was
given infirmity that I might do bet-
ter things. I asked for riches that
I might be happy; I was given
poverty that I might be wise. I
asked for all things that I might
enjoy life; I was given life that I
might enjoy all things. I got noth-
ing that-I asked for but everything
I had hoped for. Despite myself,
my prayers were answered. I am,
among all people, most richly
blessed."
Be most richly blessed.


Keenagers host dinner and a movie for area churches


By Bobbi Brown

A poster on the door of the
fellowship hall of First Baptist
Church in Moore Haven read:
"Welcome! Since we're planning
to spend eternity together any-
way, shouldn't we get acquaint-
ed?" This was the beginning of a
really fun get-together for senior
groups from area churches. Dan
Currie asked the blessing, and
the evening began with a covered
dish dinner, at which guests were
instructed to sit at any table-ex-
cept one bearing the name of
the church that they attended, in
order to meet seniors from other
churches. Tables were decorated
with a "movie theme" featuring
popcorn in red and white con-
tainers, and a spring bouquet
containing the names of local
churches printed on movie film.
Each person was instructed to
learn two things about someone
at their table whom they did not
know and, as they won a door
prize, they were to reveal what
they had learned about their

dinner companion. We were all
surprised to learn that love bugs
make a noise, that two sets of sis-
ters were in attendance, and three
pastors attended!
Following the awarding of
door prizes, the group went into
the sanctuary to enjoy the movie


"Facing the Giants", a wonderful
Christian movie. Pastors of the
following churches were sent or
handed invitations including: Ma-
ple Grove Baptist, St. Joseph The
Worker, Lakeport Christian, New
Hope Baptist, First United Meth-
odist, Church of God, Living Wa-


ters Fellowship, Miracle Deliver-
ance Center (returned because of
wrong address), True Tabernacle
of God, Inc., (returned because of
wrong address), First Baptist of
Washington Park, Palmdale Bap-
tist and' Moore Haven Christian.
In addition to members of local
churches, the group welcomed
guests of Dan and Judy Currie
who are members of The Church
of Latter Day Saints.
If your church was left out,
please let Bobbi Brown know
with a correct address, so that
when we do this again, we will
be sure to invite the seniors from
your church.
Everyone agreed it was fun to
get to know our Christian broth-
ers and sisters, and hope to enjoy
another time of Christian fellow-
ship.
Keenagers would like to ex-
tend a thank you to those who at-
tended to make this an inspiring
evening. We hope those who did
not get the invitations will be able
to attend when we get together
again.

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
It doesn't take much convinc-
ing to get parents to inoculate
their children i .a
against many
of the diseases
that can now .
be prevented.
One of the or-
ganizations to
which I belong
has undertaken
a world-wide ef- Rev.
fort to eliminate Samuel S.
a childhood Thomas
disease, polio, that used to strike
fear into the hearts of parents and
children whenever it was men-
tioned. Today, nobody remem-
bers an "iron lung" or fears polio
quite like before. There are other
diseases that used to strike fear
in our hearts and are no longer a
threat and we have learned how
to provide ourselves with some-
thing within us to protect us from
the plagues that used to ruin lives
or kill not too long ago.
At first, people used common-
sense means for dealing with sick-
nesses not understood; stay away


from crowds or avoid mosquitoes
or wash up. Later, vaccines pro-
vided the means for carrying the
protection within us. The vaccine
goes with us wherever we go, we
are much safer and better pro-
tected.
There have been other efforts
to treat problems in communi-
ties by other kinds of "inocula-
tions" and programs to help our
younger citizens in dealing with
other kinds of "sicknesses" that
may assault them. We have be-
come. more aware of the effects
of bullying and how it is related to
many of the tragedies that happen
in our schools and communities.
There is no injection to protect
our children against the cruelty of
others but there are other kinds
of "inoculations" available. One
is to teach children that they are
of special worth to their parents,
to their true friends and, finally,
to God. Another is to look at why
people do the things they do; in-
cluding those who do things that
are destructive or mean-spirited.
Many times, such acts reflect the
inadequacies and insecurities
of the aggressor; reflect some-
one who cannot compete on a
level playing field and must pick

someone more defenseless; re-
flect someone who is reacting to
poor circumstances in their own
lives and lashes out against forces
beyond their own control. When
a victim does not have the spiri-
tual or mental resources to cope;
when there is no inoculation
against unwarranted and unde-
served attacks, the damage to the
person accumulates.
I remember telling someone
who was being abused that it was
wrong to tolerate abuse, that they
'did not have to tolerate it and that
they were a child of God with all
that it meant. As I made this last
point, I was asked if we could
spend more time talking about
just what it means to be a child of
God and I obliged. I recalled the
Lord telling the crowds when He
gave the Sermon on the Mount
that we are not to be anxious for
our lives and that God takes care
of the birds of the air and feeds
them, then asks "Are you not of
more value than they? (Matthew
6:26)." We considered that He
made us "a little lower than the
angels (Psalm 8:5)" and that we
have a place in God's plan.

tive things or attempts to bully us,

that person simply doesn't under-
stand our true nature; that we are
made in God's image, that we are
loved by God and His imprint on
us cannot be tarnished in spite of
efforts that try to make us believe
otherwise. Over time, a "spiritual
inoculation" was planted; with
it came courage. With courage
came the will to change things
and a new way of dealing with
the detractors that used to be a
problem but are no more. One of
my colleagues used to say "God
don't make no junk" and she was
right.
Remembering that "God made
us" and all of what that means is
the beginning of an inoculation
that can bring booster shots to us
throughout all of our lives.

Backyard



Chickens
By MaryAnn Morris

Chickens and their eggs were an
important part of pioneer family's
diets. Hens lay most days, so eggs
were a readily available source of
protein needing no refrigeration.
If you want to keep a few hens in
your backyard, you will have eggs
most days.
Keeping chickens isn't difficult.
When kept in dirty, crowded con-
ditions disease can be a problem
and that is normal with any animal
- and people, too.
Most feed stores have chicks for
sale from time to time when cer-
tain breeds are, laying, according
to local chicken hobbyist, Richard
Spivey.
"Different breeds lay at differ-
ent times and then they'll stop
for awhile, like during the winter
when there isn't much light or
when the weather gets real warm
and they molt," he said. "Molting
means they lose their feathers and
grow new ones back."
So, just ask a local feed store
when their next shipment is.
Or, you may want to buy your
chickens "sexed," which will guar-
antee (as nearly as possible) that
you will have hens to give eggs
and not half roosters. Roosters are
male chickens and do not lay.
Online sources will sell you
baby chicks or fertile eggs for
hatching, if you have the equip-
ment.
Roosters or a rooster can be
kept, if you want to breed your
own replacement chickens, but
let's say you don't. Then you want
to buy "sexed" chickens. This
means the chickens you buy have
been verified as hens. Sexed chick-
ens cost more, but that is the price
of not having a rooster crowing on
bright, moon lit nights or slaugh-
tering unnecessary roosters! But
roosters can be beautiful and you
might want one for his decorative
value.
You can, of course eat any
"extras" and there are books and
online sources to explain how the
deed is done or you can ask some-
one with experience.
Baby chicks need to be warm
and clean, have food and above
all, water. Baby chicks will not
live long without those. Local feed
stores carry "starter" feed they
need for a very small price.
Before you bring them home,
decide where you will keep them.
It should be as predator-proof and
you can make it and big enough to
hold the growing chicks, their food
and water with room to spare. Li-
braries generally have books on
raising chickens or can get books
for you. One local backyard chick-
en gentleman who has a number
of small pens and coops, installed
electrified tape about six inches
off the ground around his chicken
"yard" and that keeps the bad guys
away from his flock. (Some people
will keep the tiny, baby chicks in-
doors if they arrive in chilly weath-
er in a large dog crate or even in
a stall shower lined with newspa-
per until they lose their down and
grow out feathers to keep warm.)
What do you feed them?
When grown, chickens are bet-
ter than pigs for eating anything.
Get a pretty bowl or container
of some sort, set it next to your
kitchen sink and throw all your
food scraps into it. Then feed these
scraps to the chickens. Empty the
container daily so as not to breed
germs. Dump the food scraps into
an old metal cake pan or the like
that you leave in the chicken run.
This way the scraps are kept off the
ground and droppings. You can
then easily dispose of any food that
the chickens didn't eat that was
left in the pan. You will find that
chickens hardly refuse anything.
It gives them food variety, too, and
you will feel like you are not wast-
ing food but recycling it. Chickens
are the ultimate omnivores. They
love fresh grass clippings; be sure
to put your garden clippings into
the chicken pen if they don't run
loose during the day, called "free
range".
At about six months, you can
feed them laying pellets. By feed-
ing pellets it's simple to keep track
of how much they are eating with-
out waste.
"A six or seven pound full-
grown hen will only eat a four
ounce can (like a little Vienna sau-
sage can, of pellets a day. If they
don't eat all of that in a day, I'll skip
feed for a day and feed them again
the day after," said Mr. Spivey.
Some day, when they are
grown, if they free-range, you may
come across one or more of your
chickens lying in the dirt, looking


rather, well dead. They are quite
alive. They are bathing, chicken
style. Chickens love to take dust
baths to lie and fluff around in
dust, which helps keep bugs out
of their feathers. It is a shock to
see them lying there dirty and di-
sheveled if you don't know what
they are doing! Chickens can be let
loose in the vegetable garden for
an hour or so where they will hap-
pily eat any bugs. They will scratch,
so keep them out of newly seeded
and planted gardens!

for Plant and Agricultural Sciences
was referenced for information
about raising chickens.

Chickens make surprisingly wonderful pets. Young Charlotte
carries her beloved pet hen around with her.

Community Profile: Cleveland E. Robinson, II


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Cleveland Rob-
inson, who is currently the Eco-
nomic and Community Develop-
ment coordinator for the City of
Pahokee, has lived in the city for
about a year.
Mr. Robinson is a 2005 gradu-
ate from Fisk University, where he
received his bachelor's degree in
religion and philosophy who re-
located from Miami last year. He
said his work experience and ed-
ucation has helped him succeed
in the Glades area.
Question: Aside fromwork-
ing with the City of Pahokee,


PB notes


Clean


Beaches


Week
PALM BEACH COUNTY -
National Clean Beaches Week
(NCBW), which will be held on
June 29-July 5, is a national cel-
ebration focusing public attention
on the role of sustainable beach-
es in American life. Promoted by
the Clean Beaches Council, four
themes of importance to beach-
goers are highlighted during the
week: a healthy environment,
sustainable travel, clean recre-
ation and fitness, and healthy
food choices. In an effort to call
attention to the importance of
healthy beaches in Palm Beach
County, Keep Palm Beach County
Beautiful, Inc. (KPBCB) encour-
ages volunteers to go out to their
local beaches after the July 4th
holiday to help clean up after a
busy holiday.
"Many families will be at their
local beach celebrating through-
out the day during the July 4,
holiday," says Lourdes Ferris,
Executive Director of KPBCB.
"Although we highly encourage
individual responsibility and we
ask that people leave the beach
cleaner than when they came,
the reality is that the majority of
litter on our beaches and water-
ways comes from human activity.
Because citizens are attracted to
the beaches for their celebrations,
the litter problem is compounded
during holidays like July Fourth.
We would welcome people who
want to take a little time after the
holiday to bring a trash bag to the
beach to pick up litter, or if you're
a boater to do the same while
you're out on the water."


Does your


A/C need a


tune-up?

With summertime around the
corner, your A/C system will likely
need to work overtime to cool
your home. And because the en-
ergy to run your A/C accounts for
more than 50 percent of an elec-
tric bill the hot summer months,
it's important to make sure your
system is running as efficiently as
possible-before the season hits.
According to FPL, the most
basic and necessary step for any
homeowner is to clean or replace
the air conditioner's filter every
month, which will increase the
system's efficiency and trim cool-
ing costs. If your air conditioning
system is 10 years or older, howev-
er, chances are it is inefficient and
nearing the end of its useful life.
FPL recommends using the fol-
lowing checklist to assess the con-
dition of your existing system and
decide whether it is time to repair
or replace your unit:
Does your system undergo
frequent repairs?
Has your system experienced
a major component failure?
Are you continually receiving
higher than anticipated electric
bills?
Is your air conditioning unit
not cooling like it used to?
If you answered yes to any of
these questions and your system
is 10 years old or older, it might
be time for replacement. In fact, in
most cases, it is more cost-effec-
tive in the long run to replace the


entire system than just one part.
Additional benefits of replace-
ment include increased efficiency
and improved indoor air quality.
FPL will help pay for a new,
more efficient unit through its
A/C incentive program, for quali-
fying customers who purchase
a high efficiency cooling system
through an FPL approved inde-
pendent contractor. To determine
if it's time to repair or replace your
system, find a list of approved FPL
independent contractors and cal-
culate potential savings visit www.
FPL.com/residential/savings.


are there other activities that
you are involved in?
Mr. Robinson: I do work for
Brother James Group, Inc. What
the group does is hold workshops
and consulting sessions in teach-
ing people self-empowerment
and community relations. I like
to talk to people about what I'm
good at, which is helping to see
people and communities grow.
Question: What is your
greatest accomplishment to
date in Pahokee?
Mr. Robinson: I would like to
say it has to be assisting with the
improvement of the city's im-
age as far as quality assurance,
outreach, community trust and


community-to-government rela-
tions. My favorite hosting activity
was the Hispanic business social
because it acknowledged diver-
sity in Pahokee. I was happy that
15 to 20 business owners and
civic leaders came out and sup-
ported the event, which was the
third Thursday in May. The social
is scheduled to take place every
third Thursday of the month.
Question: Where do you
see Pahokee five years from
now?
Mr. Robinson: No doubt in my
mind, I see Pahokee as a stand-
out community because we have
a lot of potential for growth and
we are growing.


Question: How has your
job helped you character-
wise?
Mr. Robinson: It has made me
become as disciplined as pos-
sible. It made me understand the
meaning of perseverance in all
aspects of life.
Question: What are your
summer plans?
Mr. Robinson: I don't know
yet. I'm just here, day-to-day, fo-
cusing on my work. This isn't col-
lege anymore, so no more sum-
mer break.
Question: What do you like
to do for fun?
Mr. Robinson: I like to travel
to places such as Nashville, Tenn.


and Washington, D.C. I am also
into music, like jazz, soul and
gospel. I have an appreciation for
all music, but my favorite musical
artists are John Coltrane, who is a
jazz musician, Stevie Wonder and
Aretha Franklin. I'm an old soul.

Lakeport Water Association
2006 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report

We're pleased to present to you this years Annual Water Quality Report. This report' is designed to inform you about the quality water and services
we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts
we make to continually improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water Our
water source is the Brighton Seminole Tribe, who gets its water form the surficial aquifer. The water Is then chlorinated for disinfection.
If you have any questions about this report or concerning your water utility, please contact the office at 863 946 1300. Lakeport Water Association
routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this
report is based on the results of our monitoring for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2006.
In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible
using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs
allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed In drinking water. There Is convincing evidence that addition of a
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG: The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MRDLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/l) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocurie per liter (pC.L) measure of the radioactivity in water.
In 2004, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found no potential sources of contamination near the
wells. Source water assessments are posted at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp/.

TTHMs [Total Trihalomethanes]. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience
problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
Lakeport Water Association failed to collect a second round of Lead and Copper samples in 2006, resulting in a monitoring violation. The monitor-
ing violation was resolved through a Consent Order with the Department of Environmental Protection. Lead and Copper results for 2007 have been sat-
isfactory and will be reported on next years CCR.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over
the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water Include: .
(A) ~..li,i..,iij:,, Tii,,,,~,o',: .j.:r, .i .u.,l; '.. n,.or.,-,,. which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock opera-
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas eroductionf-mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum pro-
duction, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by pub-
lic water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, which must provide the same pro-
tection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contami-
nants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by
calling the Environmental Protection Agency's'Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
SSome people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with
cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other Immune system disorders, some elderly,
and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guide-
lines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking
Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Clewiston had a golf course


In the pioneer days, there
was plenty to do around Lake
Okeechobee. The Clewis-
ton Museum has a collec-
tion of the writings of Beryl
Bowden.
Mrs. Bowden wrote for
Clewiston News for many
years. The following story,
transcribed by MaryAnn Mor-
ris, was written about social
activities in Clewiston.
"As the town first devel-
oped and Civic Center Park
was planted in grass, two
practice holes for golfers were
built. Later, three more were
provided, permitting a little
playing while the real course
was being constructed. The
golf course was part of archi-
tect John Nolen's plans for
Clewiston.
"An 18-hole course was
designed by Stiles aid Van
Kleeck, a St. Petersburg firm
and nine holes were con-
structed at one time. Many
golfers were attracted to the
town by the excellent, if small,
course. The course opened
for play on Sunday, Febru-
ary 23, 1929, for a fifty-cent
daily fee; or for two dollars
per month, the whole family
could play.
"Gene Sarazen played it a
number of times. His score
of 32 for the nine holes was
a course record, for many
years, though Gene Goghill,
the local pro, equaled the

pioneers and history


'" -




score later.
"When the Clewiston
News building was con-
structed, the south wall of the
building was used for hand-
ball, since a concrete court
was built adjoining at the
same time.
"An outdoor basketball
court was constructed for the
local school. For a time there
were a few town basketball
teams in the area also. Lo-
cal folks and the P.T.A. raised
money to support them.
"Football appeared in the
1930's when Clewiston High
School Principal Richard W,
Turk introduced six-man foot-
ball and served as coach.
"An outdoor bowling alley
on Central Avenue was popu-
lar for a few years. Later, in-
door alleys were provided in
the building which later be-
came Jaycee Hall and is now
shared by the Senior Citizen
group.
"Clewiston's first skat-
ing rink was built and oper-


ated by the Bembry brothers,
Leon and Gordon, agile and
graceful skaters themselves.
The building has a fine maple
floor and the sport was very
popular. The building has
undergone transformations
as a grocery, then a furniture
store. Its final renovation? A
police and fire station for the
city.
The present rink at the
eastern edge of the city was
built later and is still an enjoy-
able and popular spot.
"Tennis was the earliest
sport for which any facili-
ties were provided. The first
court was constructed on the
lakeside grounds of the old
Clewiston Inn. Later, through
the leadership of the Kiwanis
Club, A community effort
provided two paved concrete
courts in the park immediately
north of the Present Clewiston
Inn. They are there, repaired,
rebuilt and lighted, are still in
use, as are a number of new
concrete courts in Civic Cen-
ter Park. Tennis has remained
a very popular sport.
"In recent years, rodeos
have become popular, but in
the early days local riders on
local horses provided plenty
of excitement with Sunday
afternoon horse races at the
Fort Thompson track attract-
ed huge crowds."


History and heritage
Forty Florida school teachers, shown here during a visit to the Clewiston Mu-
seum, were headquartered at The Clewiston Inn the past week as they studied
the history and heritage of the Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes. Annually the
Florida Center for Teachers, part of the Florida Humanities Council, conducts
an event to increase awareness of our state's culture and heritage.




Lewis and Clark exhibit visits



Clewiston library in mid June


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Clew-
iston Library was recently
learned that they have been
selected to receive a very spe-
cial exhibit.
The exhibit is the "Lewis
and Clark and the Indian
Country" traveling exhibit by
the National Endowment for
the Humanities.
According to Barbara Oef-
fner, Director of the Clewiston
Library, the Clewiston library
was one of twenty-three pub-
lic, academic, and tribal li-
braries in the country chosen


to host this important exhibit.
"I was delighted to learn
about it" said Mrs, Oeffner
"We very interested in the
Lewis and Clark journey" she
explained because the water
played such a major role in
their exploration.
"We believe that this ex-
hibition will showcase the
meaningful interrelationship
that the Native Americans
and Corps of Discovery en-
joyed in 1804," Mrs. Oeffner,
continued.
The library will be notified
in mid-June when they will
get the exhibit she said.


The showcase, which will
be at the library for six weeks,
be also shipped to the library,
free of charge. The library will
receive a $1,000 grant, 2,000
brochures, 25 posters and
two banners to publicize the
six programs that will be pre-
sented on various aspects of
the exploration.
"As part of being the Proj-
ect Coordinator, I will be at-
tending the planning work-
shop at the Newberry Library
in Chicago on Sept. 7," added
Mrs. Oeffner.

Tim Mahoney. The meeting was held at the Port Charlotte County Administra-
tion Building in Port Charlotte. Congressman Tim Mahoney discussed FEMA &
Hurricane Preparedness with EM Directors & County Administrators from Hen-
dry, Charlotte and Highland Counties. Congressman Tim Mahoney listened with
concern and asked questions as each county discussed their preparedness

Tennis stars take top spots at tourney


By Tim Allen
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Community Tennis Association
hosted a USTA-sanctioned tennis
tournament for girls ages 8-12 in
Clewiston the weekend of June
9 and 10. Although the competi-
tion was open to players from
throughout the state, the top tro-
phies stayed in Clewiston. Anessa
Leyva won first place and Issa-
bella Allen (both from Clewiston)
took second place in the Girls-10
Finals. Melanie Allen (Clewiston)
won first place in he f Gifls 12
event and Melissa Libby (Fort My-
ers) taking second place. Macie
Tendrich, of Boynton Beach, was
the third place winner.
Tim Allen, a volunteer with
the CCTA, says that the tennis
program in Clewiston is growing
every week.


"I've been involved with a lot
of organizations over the years,
but the United States Tennis Asso-
ciation has to be one of the most
organized and efficient groups I
have encountered," he said add-
ing, "Every -nny of money raised
by this. gr'goes back into pro-
moting ha' developing tennis in
local communities. I hope that
everyone who has an interest in
tennis or in promoting healthy ac-
tivities for kids and adults in our
community will get involved with
our programs."
To get involved, drop in to the
CCTA's "open" tennis clinic each
Monday evening from 6-8 p.m.
this summer at the tennis courts
on Royal Palm Avenue.
The fun, game-based clinic
is open to all kids and adults. A
similar program is being planned
for the Harlem community if the


interest level is high enough. Call
Tim Allen at (863) 599-2595 for
registration information.
Formal tennis instruction is
also available from Kathy Irey,
a local certified USPTA teaching
professional. She is organizing an
adult women's group for July and
August. Contact her at (863) 233-
9098 for more information.
In other news, four youths
from Clewiston are participating
in the University of Florida Gator

Beatty, Sarah Espinoza, Anessa
Leyva, and Melanie Allen. These
girls received scholarships from
the United States Tennis Associa-
tion (USTA)-Florida to help young
players in our community im-
prove their game for competitive
high school play in future years.
Also, the CCTA and the City of
Clewiston has received a match-


ing grant from the USTA-Florida
to improve the grounds around
the tennis courts on Royal Palm
Avenue with additional seating for
spectators. The plans have been
approved and groundbreaking
