By Naji Tobias

BELLE GLADE In an an-

prise many in the Glades area,
Belle Glade Commissioner Ray

The commissioner, formerly
mayor, has served in the Belle

Glade city commission for three
years.
Commissioner Sanchez is
slated to run against .U.S. Rep-
resentative Alcee Hastings in the
23rd District of Florida.
Commissioner Sanchez said


that he would aggressively ad-
dress issues such as gang vio-
lence, youth mentoring and child
care.
Commissioner Sanchez said
that gang violence is a serious
problem, specifically in the Belle


Glade area, where police follow
the trail of several gangs operat-
ing in the city.
"I'm tired of seeing the city
being run down by the violence
and drugs that exist here", said
the commissioner. "We need to

hospital's


new CEO

New CEO hopes
he can turn
hospital around

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Sun
BELLE GLADE With just
under three months behind the
reigns at Glades General Hospital,
new CEO David Zechman seems
excited at the prospect of opening
a new hospital in the near-future.
The Palm Beach County Health
Care District, which is directly re-
sponsible for the local hospital,
has already pledged millions of its
own rone- t:' bui ming the n,:-v
hospital, and plans are under way
for a 2009 opening.
But that doesn't mean that im-
provements to the current build-
ing and in services are being held
back. Mr. Zechman insists that
the hospital continue providing
quality care to residents until the
opening of the new facility.
Hospital spokesperson Terri
Calsetta points to Mr. Zechman's
background as a working super-
visor having begun as a respi-
ratory therapist -- as perhaps his
biggest strength. He can identify
with the workers and the nurses
who put in a hard day at work ev-
ery day, Ms. Calsetta said.
According to Ms. Calsetta, the
staff has given the new adminis-
trator a very warm welcome and
employees are excited.
Mr. Zechman liked the experi-
ence as a supervisor and decided
he wanted to do it full-time. Be-
fore, he would have to be in the
trenches with the other employ-
ees, now he simply has to direct
them, but it's given him a unique
perspective on how.a hospital op-
erates.
"When you've worked your
way up, you have a better under-
standing," said Mr. Zechman. Not
only was he a supervisor then,
but he was also, "taking care of
patients."
He worked his way through
school, studying part-time while
working full-time, he said.

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES The right word
at the right time could change
a person's life forever.
In the case of Captain Ro-
lando Silva, the new District
Five Commander of the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office,
it certainly rings true, after he
was given the go-ahead to take
over the large district.
Captain Silva replaces Cap-
tain John Russ, who has retired
as the District Five Commander


after 27 years of service.
Captain Silva began his du-
ties on July 2.
The captain said he realizes
that he has some big shoes to
fill, since he will be responsible
for serving the entire Glades
area, his specific department
tasked with policing the unin-
corporated areas around Belle
Glade, South Bay and Paho-
kee.
"1 realize the challenge
that's set before me," said Cap-
tain Silva.

Reducing greenhouse gas emissions important


By Lewis Hay, III
Chairman and CEO
FPL Group, Inc.
The threat of major, long-term
environmental and economic
damage from climate change
is real and warrants action to
slow, stop and eventually reverse
growth in greenhouse gas emis-
sions such as C02. Because in-
dustrial activity is at least partly to
blame for the problem, business
leaders have a responsibility to be
part of the solution. It is critical to
put the right policies in place that
will be effective in reducing emis-
sions without imposing unaccept-
able costs or needlessly shocking
the economy. Bad policy can be
just as damaging as no policy. In
addressing this issue, we need to
think as Floridians because dif-
ferent potential policies can vary
dramatically in their impact on
our state.
At FPL, we invested significant-
ly in making our existing power
plants more efficient and building
highly efficient plants to meet the
needs of our growing customer
base. Our fuel mix is diversified,
and about half of our electricity
today is generated from cleaner
natural gas and a fifth from nucle-
ar. That starkly contrasts to the to-
tal U.S. fuel mix used to generate
electricity with coal producing
half of the nation's power. Most
of those coal plants are tradition-
al, less efficient plants with higher
rates of C02 emissions.
If we are not diligent about de-
tails of new federal C02 policies,
Floridians could end up paying
twice. By investing in clean and
efficient technologies, we already
have paid for our cleaner skies
and lower emissions rates. In


fact, if all U.S. electric companies
reduced their C02 emissions to
the same level as FPL Group, the
nation's C02 emissions would be
better than required by the Kyoto
Protocol. We have achieved this
standard in part because of our
national leadership in renewable
energy, such as wind. It would be
grossly unfair if we were forced
by the federal government to
pay to clean up other regions of
the country that have enjoyed
the lower prices associated with
cheaper traditional coal plants
and inefficient generation, and
consequently much higher emis-
sions.
Certain Congressional propos-
als addressing C02 and climate
change would require every com-
pany simply to reduce their emis-
sions by the same percent relative
to their historical level of emis-
sions, without regard for efficien-
cy records or customer growth.
It's like asking a 300-pound man
and a 165-pound man each to
lose 25 per cent of their weight.
The 300-pound man the inef-
ficient, high emitter of C02 in our
analogy-clearly needs to lose
the weight and more. The 165-
pound man -- who has made the
difficult decisions and the sacri-
fices necessarily to be fit simply
doesn't have any weight to lose.
Instead, in a perverse twist, un-
der some Congressional cap and
trade proposals, the lean man will
have to buy allowances from the
overweight man just to meet the
arbitrary reduction mandate. In
real terms, Floridians, because
companies like FPL have already
reduced C02 emissions rates
significantly over recent years
and thus have little, if any, more
"weight" to lose, will have to buy


credits from companies in other
states. In contrast, a policy that
simply puts a price on carbon and
keeps raising that price provides a
powerful market incentive to the
heavy carbon emitters to change
their fuel diet without penalizing
those who have already achieved
C02 "fitness."
Likewise, a C02 policy that ig-
nores Florida's growth rate would
be like asking a fast-growing 14-
year old athlete to lose weight at
the'same rate as his sedentary
middle-aged parents. It is unrea-
sonable and can be dangerous to
his health.
While it may be possible for
Congress to agree to a reasonably
fair and effective cap and trade
system, there is no assurance
that this will be the case. More-
over, it will be administratively
complex, expensive, subject to
fraud and substantially harmful to
our economy. FPL recommends
a straightforward fee to be im-
posed equally on all carbon used
as fuel anywhere in the nation. It
puts a price on carbon as it enters
the market -- a direct way that is
simple and inexpensive to admin-
ister, fair in its application and
effective in achieving lower emis-
sions while encouraging techno-
logical advancement.
The carbon fee spreads the
burden across the entire economy
so that transportation, electricity
generation and all other sectors
are equally encouraged to take
action. Starting at $10 per ton of
carbon content and rising every
year, thefee provides a real price
signal to change consumer be-
havior and incentives for invest-
ments in new technology and al-
ternative fuels. Proceeds from the
fee should be put back into the


economy to help fund develop-
ment and deployment of carbon
capture,,and alternative fuel tech-
nologies and to compensate low-
income consumers who might be
hurt by the price increases. This is,
not a tax because 1) it would be
revenue-neutral to government,
and 2) you can actually avoid pay-
ing a fee by choosing not to emitj
carbon.
Economists such as Paul Volk-
er and Robert Reich are among
those who support a fee to con-
trol carbon use. Commentator
Thomas Friedman and former,
Vice President Al Gore also sug-
gest pricing carbon into all goods
and services nationwide rather
than allow historical levels of C02'
emissions to be "grandfathered"
or given "free" allowances. Even
a recent report by the Intergovern-
mental Panel on Climate Change,'
a group under the direction of
the UN and the WMO, notes that.
.a fee would be an efficient way'
to internalize the price of green-
house gases and that emission'
allowances have distributionaL
consequences and price volatility
that make it difficult to predict the.
cost of compliance. A price oni
carbon makes complete sense to
economists and also is fairest to,
Florida.
We encourage Floridians to
learn everything they can about,
the issue, to take whatever con'-
servation steps they can person-
ally, and to ask their U.S. Senators
and Representatives to look outl
for Florida 's interests while pro-,
viding good policy for the nation
and the world.
A national fee on carbon as
fuel is fair, equitable, effective and:
responsible. It is a policy whose
time has come.

Shooting in Harlem injures three


Officials search
for shooter

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HARLEM Witnesses say
a man involved in an argument
with another man shot several
rounds at him,' hitting him -- and
two others by accident-- in a dis-
pute in Harlem on Monday. .
The shooting victims all sur-
vived, and officials are now
searching for Joe Nathan Willing-
ham, also known as "Sunshine,"
for questioning.
The incident happened July 91h
at 1068 Harlem Academy.
According to a probable cause
affidavit provided by the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office, an argu-
ment between the two subjects


started shortly before 10 p.m.
Witnesses at the scene said the
two were arguing about one hav-
ing reportedly hit the other with
his car earlier.
Before long, one man pulled a
gun out and reportedly fired sev-
eral times at the other hitting him
in the left upper thigh/buttock
area. Markeith Dwan Pope, 29,
told officials he tried to run away
from the shooter, fearing that he
would be shot in the face, and,
when he felt a sting in his leg,
knew he had been hit.
According to the report, at
the hospital, Pope told investi-
gators that he wanted to press
charges against his attacker, but
also warned deputies that if they
didn't "do y'all's job," his "boys'll
handle it."
Pope said he knew the sus-


pect.
Two others were also injured
in the shooting.
Both said they did not know
what had happened, and had
only heard arguing. They said
they were not sure who had shot
them.
Surveillance video at the near-
by Sony's Service Center store
showed the scene as it played
out. Investigators are reviewing
the video for evidence, but are
looking for Mr. Willingham 'for
further questioning.
If you have any information
about this crime, you are urged
to contact the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office at 983-1440.

FHP reported 31 holiday fatalities


TALLAHASSEE Thirty one
people were killed in crashes
-investigated by Florida Highway
Patrol troopers over the six-day
July fourth holiday driving period,
which began July 3 and ended
July 8. During this period, troop-

1,426 seatbelt and child restraint
citations; and assisted 4,225 mo-
torists on Florida's highways. The
Florida Highway Patrol again par-
ticipated in Operation C.A.R.E.
(Combined Accident Reduction

Curry Island and delicious guava


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
Thear there are those around
in both town and country of the
"chosen" counties that border
Lake Okeechobee: Glades, Hen-
dry, Palm Beach and Okeechobee,
and also, since they are so geo-
graphically close, St. Lucie and
Highlands, who know about it.
But then there are more than a
few who don't. Curry Island. A
spit of land in Glades County, on
the western perimeter of the Big
Lake that in days a-gone was a
real honest-to-God island before
those who thought they could
improve the earth got to digging
and ditching.
And there's a story about the
fruit that grows there, the guava/
guajava that has taken to the wilds
of the used-to-be island like bees
to honey or bass to the lake.
It's still called an island, but
when all the diking was going on
close to the lake, the water level
of the lake was lowered, thus the
island became connected to the
land at one point, therefore an
island as such, it is no more. Nev-
ertheless, in this part of the world,
it's still Curry Island, where the
biggest and best of the biggest
and best guajavas grow. Their
chosen time of year is September
and October.
According to the late Vance
Whidden of Moore Haven, who
was a well-known native Floridi-
an and served as a Glades County
Commissioner for 20 years, there
used to be untold numbers of the
trees, great stands of them on
Curry Island. Now, sadly enough,
there are relatively few but those
that remain are big and bountiful,
and so far this look as if it will be
a good year..
As to the name of the island,
according to Mr. Whidden, there
used to be a commercial fisher-
man who had his place on the
left, the north, that is, right there
at the island. Everybody called
him Uncle Will, Uncle Will Curry,
so the island just got to be called
Curry Island. This was way back
in the early 1900s. Mr. Whidden's
grandfather, who was also a
Florida native, lived on that island
for a long, long, time. They had a
pitcher pump and they farmed
right there.
In fact, a lot of people lived
+ on that island before the big hur-
ricane in the late 1920s and a
few stayed on afterwards but not


Guava.


many.
And the story goes on that one
of the biggest moonshine opera-
tions in these parts was on that is-
land. It was owned by the Parker
brothers who were in the cattle
business. All the land was open
range then, but it was the still that
was the real money maker.
There was a big concrete slab,
that's where the still was. Living
quarters were on the second floor
above the still.
The man that ran the still
was named Cecil Johnson. They
raised corn between the island
and where 78 is now, then natu-
rally, they used the corn to make
the moonshine. That still was run
24 hours a day!
After it was made and bottled,
that moonshine was loaded on
boats and hauled to Canal Point
where they sold it. In those days
about everybody made moon-
shine. It was just another indus-
try.
One day Cecil Johnson was
headed out going to town or
somewheree" to pick up sup-
plies and things, and here comes
the prohibition officer.
The officer stopped Cecil and
said, "You're under arrest for run-
ning a moonshine operation."
Cecil was real quick with a
comeback saying, "You can't 'rest
me without a warrant and papers
to search."


The officer agreed, then sim-
ply took out handcuffs, locked
Johnson to the nearest fence
post, went back to town, got the
warrant papers, came back and
destroyed the whole operation!
'Course Johnson got arrested.
And that's the story about
moonshine-makin' on Curry Is-
land.
But getting back to the guavas
on Curry Island, Mr. Whidden said
that every few years (like 1997 for
instance), the trees get knocked
down by freezing and then for a
couple years there was little or no
fruit, but in a good year, like 1996,
those guavas were something to
see, and to taste.
And, there are those who be-
lieve that every now and then
for reasons known only to them,
guavas and guajavas simply rest
a year producing little or no fruit,
then the next year, there will be a
bumper crop.
Both varieties thrive in sub-
tropic Florida providing delicious
fruit and extraordinary beauty in
the landscape. While preferring
rich soil in a sunny location, both
are amazingly adaptable and
quite drought-tolerant when the
plants become well established.
Oddly enough neither attracts
diseases.
Raccoons and squirrels as well
as various birds prize both variet-
ies almost as much as "folks".

These tropical fruits are also
called guava apples.
As big and impressive, as the
guava/guajava is, there are those
who vow that its flavor does not
compare with the Cattley guava,
commonly called strawberry
guava, which is a much smaller
fruit and close to the color of
strawberries. It is the Cattley that
is most often used in the land-
scape. There are old favorite fam-
ily recipes for making guava jelly,
or jelly-jam as the case may be.
If, in straining the juice from the
fruit after it's been cooked, the
pulp goes through the strainer,
.the results will be jelly-jam. And
there are those who vow that
guava jelly-jam has a finer flavor
than the clear guava jelly.
And for guava non-purists, try
this: Just when the juice begins to
string off a spoon, which means
it's just before jelling, simply add
a box of either strawberry or rasp-
berry Jello. Stir rapidly and in a
minute or two the juice will show
it's ready to be poured into jars.
In addition to the color being en-
hanced, so the flavor will be also
-- a delicate taste of strawberry or
raspberry. You'll probably never
go back to making plain guava
jelly. (One box of either flavor to
a 4-cup jelly recipe.)

The 2006-2007 water shortage Question and answer


SThe following questions are
those frequently asked by local
residents in the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District regard-
ing recent drought situation.
' Question: Finally, it's "started
to rain, which should help the
drought. So, why is water being
released to the ocean? Shouldn't
we be saving every drop?
i Answer: We are storing as
much rain from storm water
runoff as possible, but there are
limits. Why? Because there is
not a lot of surface water storage
available in most coastal commu-
nities, particularly areas east of
I-95. That's why you may see wa-
ter being discharged: to prevent
rainfall-related flooding in some
neighborhoods.
Flooding can happen very
quickly because most of South
Florida is relatively flat, and in
heavily developed areas, natural
lands that could absorb excess
%vater are in short supply. Sudden,
heavy rainfall also doesn't sit long
enough on the soil to be well ab-
sorbed. In addition, most storm
water systems in older commu-
riities are not designed to handle
more than a few inches of rain
without some flooding. Those
neighborhoods, as well as larger
city or county systems, all feed
ifto our regional system. So, even
if it doesn't look as if your neigh-
borhood is in danger of flooding,
many communities upstream or
downstream of your neighbor-
hood may need to drain excess
water into the regional system.
In short, we simply do not
have enough places to store all
the rainfall we receive during the
wet season, and there is no way
to move water all the way back
to Lake Okeechobee. Without
the storage capacity to capture
additional rainfall, the SFWMD


must make periodic discharges of
water to tide for flood protection.
Without these discharges, streets
and homes would be flooded.
As we head into the peak of
the rainy season, additional rain-
fall likely will trigger the need for
additional flood protection dis-
charges to tide.
Question: How can you still'
claim there's a drought when my
lawn is green and it's raining ev-
ery day?
Answer: Central and northern
portions of the SFWMD remain
critically dry, as wet season rains
have been highly localized over
much of the southern third of the
District. Over the past 30 days, for
example, Lake Okeechobee, a
primary backup water supply to
five million South Floridians dur-
ing the dry season, received less
than five inches of rain, while por-
tions of Miami-Dade and Broward
counties received more than 12
inches over the same period.
In Central Florida, this is still a
drought.
Think of a drought as a clima-
tological phenomenon where not
enough rain enters the system; a
water shortage is a community's
inability to deal with a drought.
While the Lower East Coast ap-
pears to be transitioning out of an
18-month-long, dry weather pat-
tern, it certainly is still experienc-
ing a water shortage.
Question: When will the Dis-
trict lift the restrictions?
Answer: It depends on rainfall,
Lake Okeechobee, water levels in
the regional system and a variety
of other factors. This water short-
age is the most severe and wide-
spread since the 1930s, weeks or
even months of constant rainfall
will be needed. The District will
continue to monitor conditions
daily, and when they improve,


the SFWMD Governing Board will
make the decision to modify re-
strictions.
The water shortage will end
only when enough rainfall soaks
into our underground supplies,
refills the Water Conservation
Areas and raises the level of Lake
Okeechobee. One indicator of
adequate water supply is a wa-
ter elevation of 14 feet in Lake
Okeechobee, and computer
modeling currently suggests there
is only a 10 percent chance the
lake level will climb to this eleva-
tion by the end of the current wet
season.
Question: Why are lower Lake
Okeechobee levels a concern?
Answer: It is a constant and
delicate balance: water supply
for people and the needs of the
environment. Low water levels
do benefit the lake ecosystem;
for example, submerged aquatic
vegetation receives more sunlight
and thus tends to thrive, rejuve-
nating fish and wildlife habitats
and improving the ecology of the
lake.
Habitat recovery efforts are un-
derway to remove harmful muck
layers from the exposed lakebed.
However, water levels that are too
low can be detrimental and cause
-unwanted drying of critical areas.
Question: What will it take for
Lake Okeechobee's water levels
to rise again?
Answer: The water level in
Lake Okeechobee remains ex-
tremely low for this time of year,
and it will take above average
rainfall on and directly to the
north of the lake to replenish the
lake to normal levels.
SFWMD meteorologists an-
ticipate that it may be more than
a month before flows into Lake
Okeechobee from the Kissimmee
Watershed are reestablished. No


prediction can be made at this
time as to precisely when the
lake's water levels will return to
their normal elevations.
Question: What is the
minimum water level Lake
Okeechobee must reach before
we can end water restrictions?
Answer: That is hard to tell. A
variety of factors, not just the lake
level, will be used to determine
modifications to current water
restrictions; these include rainfall,
groundwater levels, other surface
water levels, soil moisture lev-
els, salinity levels in coastal well
fields, etc.
Water levels in Lake
Okeechobee are approximately
four feet below their historic aver-
age for this time of year. The lev-
els will need to rise appreciably
before any end to water restric-
tions can be declared, particularly
within the Lake Okeechobee Ser-
vice Area, which relies almost ex-
clusively on the lake as a primary
water resource.
Question: Why did you drain
the lake last year? Isn't this all
your fault?
Answer: The Army Corps of
Engineers, which is responsible
for managing water levels in the
lake, relies on the best, most
current information available to
guide water management deci-
sions; this includes long term
weather predictions from the
National Weather Service and
others.
Water discharges were made
from Lake Okeechobee during
the summer of 2006, in anticipa-
tion of what was expected to be a
very active hurricane season and
in accordance with a complex
regulation schedule, which helps
direct water management deci-
sions at specific water elevations
and times of year. These resulted


in a water level reduction of per-
haps 1.5 feet over the course of
several months.
The Army Corps of Engineers
made these decisions in light
of concerns over the structural
integrity of the Herbert Hoover
Dike and the serious flooding
threat that high lake levels pose
to communities around the lake.
The same occurred prior to the
active hurricane seasons of 2004
and 2005.


Should a storm of even mod-
erate magnitude damage the dike
when water stages are high, com-
munities like Clewiston, Pahokee
and Belle Glade could experience
catastrophic flooding. As a matter
of public safety, the lake cannot
be managed at high elevations
during the wet season, and even
if no discharges had been made,
we would still be in a severe,
long-term drought and subse-
quent water shortage.

Citrus Growers may be exemption to the rule


LAKELAND Florida citrus
growers could benefit from a re-
cent expansion of the sales tax
exemption on electricity used to
operate a farm.
' The new exemption, which
took effect July 1, means all elec-
tricity used in the processing or
production of agricultural prod-
ucts on a farm is exempt from
sales tax. This includes electricity
Osed in offices, storage buildings
and maintenance shops.
: The previous law's ambiguous


language made it unclear whether
certain uses were exempt. The re-
vision could eliminate the need to
install additional meters to segre-
gate eligible and non-eligible elec-
trical power used on the farm.
However, the new law does
not exempt the sales tax on elec-
tricity used in homes or residenc-
es even if they are located on the
farm. Growers should evaluate
their on-farm electric usage to
determine if they benefit from the
expanded exemption.


If a grower benefits, he should
contact his electric company and
provide them with an exemption
certificate. For more information
on the exemption call Rusty Wi-
ygul at (863) 682-1111.

tne blessing of this letter wL you,
dated Dec. 13, 1987.
Dear John (I have received a
lot of "Dear John" letters in my
life!)
Your mother and I have been
asked by Mike Oliver to write you
a letter in support of your planned,
"Walk to Emmaus" in January. It
is supposed to be an opportunity
for us to express our appreciation
of you and what our relationship
means and has meant over the
years.
When you were little, I had
the same close relationship with
you that I had with the other boys
and I realize now that when you
were in Jr. High, I let you down
by not being as involved with you
in your activities as I was with
the other boys. I also did not un-
derstand your sensitivity to other
people at that time, and when
you came home with a peace
symbol, I never gave you an op-
portunity to state a position I


or wrong other than rational de-
cisions. A person is poor, but
needs medicine for his wife: will
his stealing be wrong? Of course
it is wrong, but there is a chance
to save a life.
What to do when there is a
conflict?
Usually the deciding factor is
what matters in our own personal
life, not a textbook discussion of
right-versus-wrong. Many of the
rationalizations for doing wrong
center around the idea that the
person is somehow "entitled" to
do what he wants to do rather
than choosing a "right" answer.
People "rationalize" when
there is no rational thinking in-
volved at all. I've heard people
argue that others are "better off"
and they're somehow deprived,
so they can act out to somehow
"even things up." People some-
times just do what they want
without regard for what will hap-
pen later or who will be hurt. A
loving wife asked me one day
why her husband wouldn't go to
the doctor, even though he was
so sick and suffered so much. I
suggested that maybe he hadn't
suffered enough. "When he gets
tired of suffering, he'll go." She ac-


our lives, our fortunes, and our
sacred honor."
It is important that we recall
this very basic Declaration Of De-
pendence, for in her prosperity
and power, and in her unique po-
sition of world leadership, Amer-
ica today is showing signs of for-
getting the God of our Fathers, the
God who gave this nation its birth
and its present greatness.
We need to be reminded of a
solemn warning that God gave to
another great nation which had
just been declared independent.
This warning is found in the Bible
and, although written over 3,000
years ago, it might well refer to
modern America today.

I was critical of your friends and
thus alienated you and never re-
ally re-established a close bond
with you. I regret that now, and if I
had the opportunity to re-run that
part of the race, I would move up
to scouts when you did, to try to
gain back the son that I had "lost"
with a few hasty words.
You are in the correct field.
From the time you were in Sr.
High, I began to see the potential,
and it really.came out when you
were in college. I felt that the min-
istry was where you belonged,
but I was not the one to whom
you came for advice in those
days. I will admit that I was quite
pleased when you finally made
the decision to enter the ministry,
and I am very proud of you and
your accomplishment in dedicat-
ing yourself to a life of service to
others.
You will never know the sense
of pride we felt at your ordination.


knowledge that "Maybe you've
got something there." We are
not really rational beings and so
many ,non-rational factors enter
into our decisions and choices.
It isn't learning by reasoning but
learning by consequences. There
is a poignant parable when the
lord heals a paralytic carried to
Him by four others (Mark 2:8ff).
The man was desperate and be-
lieved that the Lord would be able
to help him. When he couldn't get
close enough to Jesus, his friends
chopped a hole in the roof of the
house where Jesus was staying
and lowered the paralytic down.
Jesus said simply "My son, your
sins .are forgiven." The miracle
was not so much a rational grant-
. ing of a wish for healing but see-
ing the heart of the matter and
treating something far more emo-
tional that was at the root of the
problem. When questioned about
it, Jesus replies "Which is easier
to say to the paralytic 'your sins
are forgiven' or to say 'rise, take
up your pallet and walk'? (v.9)."
, The pronouncement that follows
afterward is "Rise, take up your
pallet and go home (v.11)." The
healing comes from speaking to
the person where he really hurts.
The consequences of the

when thou hast eaten and art full,
and hast built goodly houses, and

Indeed, history has made it
abundantly clear not only in the
lives of nations, but also of indi-
viduals, that those who by their
lives and actions declare their

accident, and held her head high
the whole way down the isle. That
event inspired her to do what very
few believed could be done!
Your accomplishments in
school, in the scouts and now as a
person have been sources of pride
to us which you will recognize
when you have children of your
own. The greatest gift any par-
ent can receive is to have a child
do well, and the highest feelings
of ecstasy are realized in the ac-
complishments of your off-spring.
When you do well, we glory.
Keep up your good works,
son, and hold the hand of Him
whom you have vowed to follow.
Your earthly parents love you very
much, and are very proud of you.
Your Heavenly Father must be
even more so. Love, Dad.
Would that all parents might

their children!


man's illness were so drastic that
he was willing to do something
very irrational even to have a
chance of getting well; having his
friends chop a hole in somebody's
roof just to get inside. This is not
the most rational of decisions, but
everyone understands what went
into his choices. The Lord under-
stands and acts. The Bible is not
a book of logic, or about people
who do rational things. Father, it
is a book about people who think
and act as we do. We learn from it
because it can speak to the heart
of human conditions.
That's where we need to listen;
make our decisions; choose what
is best for'others and ourselves.
Debates and arguments work
best when things are abstract and
people are indifferent; our choices
come when we stand alongside
of others, when we're personally
involved, when loving is difficult
but the only way forward. Deci-
sions about right or wrong are
never simple, never without emo-
tion, never clear-cut. Recognizing
some of the forces that weigh in
them helps in making them, and
remembering to temper them
with the best kind of love we can
offer. That's what Jesus did!


independence from God, soon
become slavishly dependent
upon the circumstances of life.
On the other hand, those who
have humbly declared their de-
pendence upon God have been
remarkably free and independent
of life's changing circumstances.
So as we think again of the
birth of our great nation, may
we pray that our beloved coun-
try might have new birth of free-
dom; not a freedom from God,
which always leads to license
and ultimate slavery, but rather
a freedom built upon God and
His commandments, apart from
which any nation will eventually
perish.

lector offices today. All offices are
open from 8:15 a.m. until 5:00

a deputy sheriff in 1990, said that
he is looking to make a positive
impact in the Glades area.
' While Captain Silva realizes
that he can't change the region
overnight, he said he is very op-
timistic that he can help improve
the quality of life in the commu-
nities of Belle Glade, Pahokee,
South Bay and the unincorporat-
ed areas of Western Palm Beach
County through a consistent level
of policing.
"What I want to do here is
to try to continue to further our
mission to have positive interac-
tions with all of the communities
in Western Palm Beach County,"
said Captain Silva.
One of the ways is through
community policing, the captain
explained.
This program, in particular, is
geared toward increased interac-
tion between the community and
the sheriff's office through youth
activities sports for children in-
cluded and old-fashioned po-
lice work. The idea is to make
residents more comfortable with
authority.
Captain Silva, who is 40, said
that his style of leadership stress-
es leading by example.
The captain said he expects
his deputies to be creative and in-
novative while fighting crime but
must also exhibit a heart for serv-
ing the community.
"Deputies will follow their
commander if he/she will lead
by example," said Captain Silva.
"I plan on leading by showing
them that I have a heart for the
people."
SOne of Captain Silva's primary
goals for his time served as the
D strict Five commander is to
visit the Glades area schools and
-provide encouragement for the
students.
Reaching the youth is some-
tiling dear to the captain's heart,
primarily because of a life-chang-
irg moment of his own, just after
he graduated from high school.
Born in Havana, Cuba and
raised in Clewiston, Captain Silva


Chief
Continued From Page 1
The new CEO will definitely
be in need of that understand-
ing, tasked with turning around
an operation that in the past has
struggled and overseeing a staff
of 326 employees.
Perhaps the biggest obstacle
that the old hospital encoun-
tered, a problem still very real for
administrators both at the larger
health care district and the local
hospital board, is the dispropor-
tionately large number of unin-
sured patients in the area.
The reality is that providing
quality health care with rising
oerational costs, burdened fur-
t er by the emergency room bills
that continue stacking up, proved
to be a losing proposition. The
hospital's former owners had
promised to build a replacement
hospital, but went back on that
agreement after posting dismal
financials. The health care district
stepped in to ensure that the hos-
pital remained operational and
ifurchased the facility.
But local residents continued
to press district officials for a
riew hospital to replace the aging
structure.
SThat is now on the horizon
with plans going forward.
Mr. Zechman is closely in-
volved with those plans, but he
remains aware of the problems
facing today's hospital. Building
a new hospital won't necessarily
change the dynamics of what is
occurring.
Another major hurdle is
physician recruitment, and Mr.
Zechman's predecessor was no
stranger to that part of the job.
Putting aside the day-to-day du-
ties of the job, a CEO must con-


at 8:00 a.m. to attend a "stand-
up" meeting with management
to discuss best practices and daily
goals.
Previously, office hours var-
ied by location, and employees
worked staggered shifts to cover
the opening and closing hours. "I
requested research of daily office
traffic at all our branch locations,"
said Ms. Gannon "and the results
showed that customers were un-
derserved in.the morning hours,
which led me to decide to open
earlier with a full staff."


learned the value of hard work
from his mother, Carmen Silva
and his father, Roberto Silva.
As a young boy, the captain's
father worked for U.S. Sugar Cor-
poration in the sugar mills. His fa-
ther died when Captain Silva was
only 12, from a bad bout with
pneumonia.
Captain Silva remembers his
mother trying to keep him busy
as a child.
But one day, not long after
high school graduation from
Clewiston High School, he met a
Florida State trooper named Tim
Rector. The captain, like his fa-
ther, was working for U.S., Sugar
in the sugar mills for a season.
During that meeting, the cap-
tain said that the trooper saw
something in him. He said he
could see the young boy as a
sheriff's officer someday.
"The thought of becoming
a cop never crossed my mind,"
said the captain.
Not long after that fateful meet-
ing, the trooper invited Captain
Silva to a patrol car ride with him.
While riding with the trooper, the
captain said he 'fell in love' with
the job instantly and since that
fateful moment, Captain Silva
hasn't looked back.
"That moment changed the
direction of my life," said Captain
Silva.
Now, as a district commander,
the captain hopes he can be that
kind of an influence on today's
youth.
- "The'rright word at the right
time could change a person's
life," said Captain Silva.
In the end, the captain hopes
to live up to the reputation that
Captain Russ left.
"Captain Russ is a very intel-
ligent person and has the ability
to talk to any person at any level.
He's well versed in a lot of dif-
ferent issues and facts, which
makes him a unique individual,"
said Captain Silva. "He will surely
be missed by the community and
the sheriff's office alike."

vince physicians that Belle Glade
is a good place to come to work
everyday.
Physicians question why a
professional would want to work
in Belle Glade, given.the historical
problems and number of unin-
sured patients, if the possibility of
opening a more successful prac-
tice is only 30 minutes away in
larger communities or, rather,
Belle Glade is a 30-minute drive
to them.
One of the benefits of working
for a hospital instead of continu-
ing a private practice, according
to Mr. Zechman, is Sovereign Im-
munity. Doctors are paying much
more simply to carry malpractice
insurance, and many are practic-
ing Without insurance.
Working for the hospital, a phy-
sician is covered by the facility's
Sovereign Immunity, and does
not have to have his or her own
malpractice insurance -- which is
one less worry for physicians.
He hopes physicians will
agree.
In the meantime, Mr. Zechman
continues familiarizing himself
with the hospital and its issues,
and is getting to know all of the
staff at the facility. The hospital's
top employee, Mr. Zechman,
who is living temporarily in Wel-
lington but is looking for a place
in the Glades, said he is ready to
play his own part in the success
of the hospital.
"It feels great," he said of his
new role, "to contribute to en-
hancing the health care needs of
this fine community."
The staff is also excited, ac-
cording to Ms. Calsetta.
"I am very impressed. So far...
we like him," she said.

Commissioner Sanchez, who
is strong supporter of FEMA and
that agency's handling of post-
hurricane recovery efforts locally,
said that he would work with
politicians regarding preparations
for future natural disasters. The
commissioner, however, has not
yet laid out an outline for how the
issue will be addressed.

Boxing

p.m.
According to boxing coach
Willie Wiggins, as the partici-
pants go through the program,
they concentrate on staying out
of trouble. Too busy learning how
to throw that perfect hook, many
of them reject what they might
see on the streets and try to stay
away from trouble.
According to Coach Wiggins,
the boxers must do well both in
the ring and outside. They have
to have discipline to run the extra
mile, or do an extra set of push-
ups and sit-ups not a fighter's
favorite thing to do.
"I encourage the parents to
tell me what the kids have done
at home," said Coach Wiggins.,
Coach Wiggins, who has been
with the program for five years,
said the boxers have tb show re-
spect to their parents 'and adults
in order to stay in the program. It
reinforces what the program ex-
pects from the kids.
"If you want to go somewhere
in life, you have to treat people
the way you want to be treated,"
said the boxing coach.
The boxing program, which
has participants ranging from 8-
to 17-years-of-age, is a positive
outlet for the athletes to release
their stress, the coach said.
"The stress and frustration
that the kids have at school and
at home starts to diminish when
they come to the gym and take
their problems out on a heavy
punching bag," said Coach Wig-
gins.
There are approximately
20 boxers in the program, and
among them are already a few
winners. One of them in particu-
lar has demonstrated just how
beneficial the work of the sheriff's
office and the coaches has been.
Meet 15-year-old Verbairi Cur-
ry.
Verbain is an honor roll stu-
dent at Glades Central High
School. The young athlete recent-
ly captured the bronze medal in
the national Boxing Junior Olym-
pics, held from June 25 to July 1
at Northern Michigan University
in Marquette, Mich.
Verbain, who currently has
a 22-5 boxing record, began his
boxing career at the age of 12.
Before that, according to coach-
es, Verbain had his share of trou-
bles.
Coach Wiggins remembers
the first day that he met Verbain
three years ago.
"When I first saw Verbain,
I saw him and one of his friend
swinging trash bags at each oth-
er," said Coach Wiggins, who
inadvertently happened upon
the scene. "One of the bags had
a bottle in it and it cut Verbain's
head."

PAL boxing coach Willie Wiggins, left, has produced a possible future boxing legend in 15-
year-old Verbain Curry, who recently won a bronze medal at the national Junior Olympics,
held at Northern Michigan University in Marquette, Mich. from June 25 to July 1. Verbain is
holding a belt that.he won at the state PAL championships last Nov. and can be seen wearing
his bronze medal.


"The stress and frustration that the kids have at
school and at home starts to diminish when they

Verbain was rushed to the
hospital, where he received five
stitches.
"After that incident, I knew Ver-
bain needed the boxing program
for guidance and to succeed in
life," said Coach Wiggins. "Since-
then, Verbain has evolved into a
well-mannered young man."
Verbain trains hard for his
boxing matches, according to his
coach.
It seemingly has rubbed off on
the entire boxing program.
"Boxing-wise, Coach Wiggins


makes our boxing team train hard
five days a week," said Verbain.
"We learn discipline through
our coach, learning how to open
doors for people and saying 'yes
ma'am', 'no ma'am', 'yes sir' and
'no sir' to authority."
At the regional champion-
ships, held in Wilmington, N.C.
from May 11 to 12, Verbain
soundly defeated both of his op-
ponents, which qualified him for
the national championship event
in Mich.
Though Verbain did not come


away with the gold medal he
lost his semifinal match he de-
feated his opponents in both
the preliminary and quarterfinal
rounds of competition.
"If's good to get to go out and'
see new people," said Verbain.
"Boxing provides a way for me
to travel to many different places
across the country and experi-
ence' new things."
Verbain, who competes in
the 132-pound lightweight class,
is also a state Silver Glove win-
ner, earning that distinction in,
December after a competition in
Royal Palm Beach.
"Verbain going to the nationals
was a major accomplishment for
him, as well as for the PAL pro-
gram and the entire Glades area,"
Coach Wiggins said.

A Child's Guide to Florida Wildlife :IA as


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to INI Florida
"A Child's Guide to Florida
Wildlife" is a crown jewel in the
world of children's books.
Alto Adams, Jr.'s text is strong-
ly yet simply written for the young
reader.
His stunning photographs in
full color all but walk or fly off the
pages.
Questions are asked and an-
swered. Why does it rain? What
do birds eat? Why do animals
die? Where do baby birds and
animals come from?
Theie are happy answers to
these and other questions that
satisfy even the most curious
young mind.
Mr. Adams writes: "In this part
of Florida young deer are born
with spots.
This is the time of year (spring)
when clover and wildflowers
bloom and these spots help the
deer to hide. As they grow older
they lose their spots."
Hammocks are explained,
as is the.life of water birds, the
Osceola Wild Turkey, the Bobcat
and Alligator.
This is a small book but it car-
ries a very large message to both
children and adults. The heart
of the message is: We must not
waste our precious resources.
Florida is a good place to live but
it will continue to be a good place
for homes and animals only if we
do not waste our water and if we
take care of the land.
This treasure of a book is 8.5
x 11-inch printed on fine enamel
photographic paper in full color.
Illustrations other than Mr. Ad-
am's magnificent photographs
'are by Amy Adams.

The back cover is nothing less
than a sign of hope for all of us,
a glorious double rainbow arch-
ing over water, land and trees, a
full color keepsake that must be
framed.
"A Child's Guide to Florida


Wildlife" is a limited edition.

Plans for Sugar Institute at local college continue


BELLE GLADE Palm Beach
Community College (PBCC), Belle
:Glade Campus Provost Beverly
'Robinson and Tere Johnson, chief
:chemist for the Belle Glade-based
:Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative
,of Florida, attended the American
,Society of Sugar Cane Technolo-
gists conference in New Orleans
'in June to present details of the
need and plans for the Sugar
ITechnology Institute to more than


450 attendees from around the
world. Plans call for PBCC to offer
an associate in science degree as
well as college credit certificates
in sugar technology. Provost Rob-
inson said PBCC's associate in sci-
ence degree in sugar technology
would be the only one of its kind
in North America. PBCC is estab-
lishing the program in response
to requests from industry leaders,
who anticipate a shortage of high-


ly skilled engineers and chemists
as the workforce ages and begins
retiring.
"It's giving the industry an op-
portunity to get trained, degree
individuals in the field," Robinson
said. "People from all over the
country can benefit from the pro-
gram."
The college has completed the
DACUM and is completing the
curriculum for presentation to the


curriculum committee. The DA-
CUM was developed with input
from employees and supervisors
in the industry as well as chemists
from U.S. Sugar, the Sugar Cane
Growers Cooperation of Florida
and Okeelanta Corporation (Flor-
ida Crystals). The College's new
program development schedule
has the sugar technology degree
program slated to begin in Janu-
ary 2008.


Currently, according to Rob-
inson, there are no degree pro-
grams for sugar engineering or
sugar technology in the'U.S. Loui-
siana State University offers elec-
tive courses in sugar technology
in the College of Engineering but
no degree. In addition, Nicholls
State University in Thibodaux, La.
offers continuing college credits
for those already in the field. Both
schools had representatives at the


conferences.
"The two other institutions
in attendance at the conference
strongly felt that our program
would close the training and edu-
cational loop for this profession,"
Robinson said. "We really are the
ideal institution. We're the only
community college that could of-
fer such a degree because of our
geographical location. It's very
exciting."


Leadership grads train to take


on nonprofit challenges


WEST PALM BEACH Two
'dozen nonprofit managers are
ready to assume greater leader-
ship roles in their organizations
S!to facilitate change in their com-
'munities as a result of participa-
tion in the Palm Beach County
Leadership and Management Ini-
tiative (LMI).
S"When I was selected for this
program, I thought it was far too
late in my career to learn anything
new," remarked Chris Skerlec,
Palm Beach County School Dis-
tfict. "After only three days in the.
program, I was amazed at how-
much I had learned. This course
renewed my way of thinking and
-tiy desire to improve things."'
For School District employee
Connie Gregory, participation in
the LMI led to a new position. In
her new post she will be facilitat-
ing the leadership development
of others.
"I knew after a few months in
the program that helping others
build their leadership skills was
what I was meant to do," she
said. "The LMI helped me see
that."
SThe Palm Beach County Lead-
4rship and Management Initia-
tive is offered through a training
partnership between the Center
fbr Nonprofit Excellence and
the University of Miami, Division
cf Continuing & International
Education. The program builds


management skills and strength-
ens leadership abilities of middle
managers in the nonprofit sector
who are the next generation of
leaders in their organizations.
This year's graduates repre-
sented the Children's Services
Council of Palm Beach County,
Early Learning Coalition, Family
Central, Inc., Health Care District
of Palm Beach County, NOAH,
Inc., Palm Beach County School
District, Resource Depot, Inc., Ur-
ban League of Palm Beach Coun-
ty and United Way of Palm Beach
County. Participants attended bi-
monthly, three-day seminars for
one year and worked in teams to
develop projects that applied key
leadership strategies to real issues
affecting Palm Beach County.
The teams presented their
projects to community leaders
on June 25. Team One designed
a community event, Get R.I.C.H.
(Resources and Information for
Children and Housing), a full day
of networking and resource ex-
change among nonprofit organi-
zations to facilitate collaboration
of county resources. Team Two,
"The Resourcefuls," assisted
with the expansion of Resource
Depot, Inc. into the Glades area.
Team Three's project, "A New
Day for VPK," envisioned a plan
to secure funding for extended
hours for low-income children in
the Voluntary Pre-Kindergarten


program.
SCarol Hillier, Professional
Development Manager at the
Children's Services Council, re-
ported that the LMI "gave me an
opportunity to reflect on my own
leadership style and plan for fur-
ther leadership development."
Ms Hiller especially valued devel-
oping professional relationships
with peers in similar positions in
the nonprofit world.
The next LMI begins Aug. 29.
For more information on the Lead-
ership Initiative, contact Katharin
Brink, Director of the Education
and Technical Assistance division
at the Center for Nonprofit Excel-
lence, (561) 910-3206.
Often referred to as "The Cen-
ter", the Center for Nonprofit Ex-
cellence's mission is to promote
quality and accountability in our
nonprofit community through
leadership development, educa-
tion and management services.
The Center was established by
a coalition of public and pri-
iate funders in January 2006 to
strengthen the administrative
and operational capacity of non-
profit organizations. The Center
has three major divisions: Agen-
cy Certification, Education and
Technical Assistance and a Man-
agement Support Organization.

Center, go to www.mynonprof-

Wellington Regional honors heroes


PALM BEACH COUNTY -
Honoring veterans for their part
in keeping our great nation free,
was the thought behind "Honor
Our Heroes" Day held on July 3'
at Wellington Regional Medical
Center (WRMC). The event was
sponsored by the hospital's Busi-
ness Office, Service Excellence
Committee.
The Committee collected do-
nations for one week prior to the
event, with all funds raised, ben-
efiting the VA Center for Combat
Veterans, located on 10th Avenue
in Lake Worth. For a small dona-
tion, hospital employees were
permitted to wear blue jeans to


work on July 3 and encouraged to
wear red, white and blue to show
their support.
The VA Center helps veterans
in our local communities by pro-
viding services to assist them and
their family members to achieve a
successful post-war adjustment.
Areas of staff expertise include:
post-traumatic stress disorder;
crisis intervention, individual and
group counseling; relationship
issues; sexual trauma; bereave-
ment counseling.
Thanks to the generosity of
employees and to a special pa-
tient of the hospital, Francis Drake.
Upon learning of the fundraiser to


benefit the Veterans Center, Mr.
Drake, himself a World War II
veteran, most generously contrib-
uted $1,000 to the cause. At a spe-
cial presentation, Marshall Goby,
Ph.D., Clinical Psychologist and
retired US Colonel, now with the
VA Center, was presented with a
check for over $1,900.
"I am proud of the employees
of Wellington Regional Medical
Center for recognizing the contri-
butions of our nation's veterans
and making this effort to give back
in some small way," said Kevin Di-
Lallo, Wellington Regional Chief
Executive Officer.

ArtStart program introduces girls to women artists


BELLE GLADE -- ArtStart, a
Palm Beach County non-profit
organization whose mission is to
provide educational opportuni-
ties in the arts, is currently work-
ing with young girls enrolled in
the summer camp program at the
Glades Kids facility in Belle Glade.
The organization is delivering a
program called "Discovering Art,"
which introduces girls to women
who have made an impact in the
world of art. "It is a wonderful
program, and I really enjoy work-
ing with the kids," said ArtStart's
Jeannette Pomeroy Parssi, who
will soon lead the girls on visits to
the Boca Museum of Art and the

We come from a very long line
of martyrs. This is a bad habit this
is hard for us to kick. Even when
we think we have let go of our
martyred attitudes they have a
way to reaching up and biting us.
This can cause a whole new set
of problems if we are not careful.
We don't have to be the mar-
tyr any longer. I know this seems
really strange, because we some-
times don't even know it when
we do this. We have always put
everyone in our homes first; be-
lieve it or not this comes naturally
to us. Here is how we can tell if
we have let go of our martyrdom;
when you make the choice to al-
low someone to put their needs
in front of yours and we get in a
bad mood over it. We have choic-
es in everything and this includes
being pouty and short with our
family.
Sometimes what we are feel-
ing is not just martyrdom; it can
be anger at ourselves for not step-
ping up and saying what we re-
ally want. Since we don't realize
that it is anger; we can lash out at
those around us. This is when we
have a tendency to transfer the
anger from ourselves to others.
I want us to look at why we are
mad in the first place.
What are you really getting up-
set over. We say it is because we
are always last, but the truth may
be that our perfectionism has
reared its ugly head once again.
We don't like making mistakes
that we should have thought of in
the first place. Then the whole day
begins to fall apart in our mind.
We had everything planned then
the plans got changed for what
ever reason. We have a hard time

f


,, ,
The

Cilley ..,


converting to plan B. This is all
because we did not put our needs
into the equation. We are always
putting everyone else first. Let's
face it; we are the event coordina-
tor for our family. We have been
juggling schedules for as long as
we can remember.
Now I want you to look at this
from your family's prospective.
They love you! They want you to
be happy, but they cannot read
your mind. If you don't tell them
and shareyour burdens with them
how are they going to know that
you feel like you are always last.
A few days ago there was an es-
say about being a pleaser. When
are we going to wake up and
realize that when you please ev-
eryone around you but you then
everyone suffers! You know what
we always say, "If momma ain't
happy; ain't nobody happy. Your
family wants you to be happy!
They are willing to do what ever


it takes to make you feel loved,
but you have to let them love you!
When you are upset and say you
are feeling like you always come
last then that hurts their feelings.
Especially when you say it to
them in anger or with that mar-'
tyred attitude that we can throw
around. I know they may be
your feelings and sharing them
is good; but I want you to realize
you are feeling this way and take
the necessary babysteps to stop
this from becoming a full blown
confrontation. They have you up
on a pedestal for all you do for
them; they are willing to help, but
you have to say it. This is why it
is important-for us to take a few
minutes to take care of ourselves.
Your family does not know your
sacrifices unless you tell them.
Life is one plan B after an-
other. Our routines give us the
foundation to help us adjust. We
are also very creative people and
when we don't use our routines
and understand how they may
have to adjust, then we feel like
we have lost control. We don't
always have to' be in control;
our perfectionism puts us in this
place of always needing to be the
one in charge. If we don't have a
routine then we don't really know
what our own needs are; do we?
This is why we leave our needs


out the equation We are so us d
to beifig selfless that we have fori
gotten about ourselves.
I will never forget when I lef
my son's father. The first words
out of his mouth were, "but I'ri
happy." Of course he was be.
cause I made sure of it to keep
him from blowing up over the
least little thing. Don't fall into
the trap of being the pleaser. Be-
cause in the long run; you are the
one that is going to feel hurt ev&i
when it is your choice. It is upilb
you to tell your family what you
need. They cannot read mind.
This cannot be done with the
martyred attitude either. You don't
have to do it all; even though you
feel more in control when you do.
Reach out and allow your family
to reach back with a hug.

Dry conditions set records in Lake Okeechobee


WEST PALM BEACH The
vast Kissimmee-Okeechobee-Ev-
erglades system, which spans 16
counties across South Florida, is
expected to continue breaking
records this week. According to
water managers at the South Flor-
ida Water Management District
(SFWMD), July 6, will mark 240
days eight months since water
flowed from the Kissimmee River
into Lake Okeechobee. At the
same time, a persistent pattern
of below average rainfall over the
Lake Okeechobee basin resulted
in yet another record low water
level for the 730-square-mile lake,
as a new all-time low of 8.82 feet
above sea level was recorded
Tuesday morning.
"In order to release water from
Lake Kissimmee and the connect-
ed lake system into the Kissim-
mee River, the water levels in all
of the lakes would have to climb
above their regulation schedules,"
said Lawrence Glenn, director of


the SFWMD's Kissimmee Divi-
sion. "At this point, it would take
well above normal rainfall over
the remainder of the wet season
to achieve that."
In accordance with regulation
schedules set by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers for the Kissim-
mee River and water bodies in the
Kissimmee Chain of Lakes region,
water structures that normally al-
low the flow of water from the
Kissimmee River into the lake
have been closed since Novem-
ber 8, 2006. The southernmost
and northernmost ends of the
river remain impassable by boat,
and small islands have appeared
on miles of banks that normally
would be flooded this time of
year.
Despite recent rains, water
levels remain below normal in
the Kissimmee watershed that
typically helps replenish Lake
Okeechobee, and backup water
storage in the watershed has been


lost because of the severe regional
drought.
Meanwhile, along the lower
east coast, groundwater levels
are steadily rising, aided by above
average rainfall in June, includ-
ing more than 12 inches of rain
recorded over the past 30 days
in coastal areas of Miami-Dade
and Broward counties. These
rains are replenishing water levels
along Palm Beach, Broward, Mi-
ami-Dade and Monroe counties,
where many residential canals
and local storm water ponds are
now full. Water Conservation Ar-
eas 1, 2 and 3 are all nearly a foot
above their respective floor eleva-
tions established by the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and have been
recovering steadily since the start
of the wet season.
Given limited water storage op-
tions in residential areas of these
counties and without the ability
to move water all the way back
to Lake Okeechobee, additional


wet season rainfall likely will trig-
ger the need for periodic flood
protection discharges to tide.
Without these discharges, streets
and homes could be inundated in
even modest rain events.
"This combination of manag-
ing the system for a lack of water
to the north and for flood control
to the south demonstrates the
variability and challenges present-
ed by this dynamic regional water
system," added Terrie Bates, As-
sistant Deputy Executive Director
for Water'Resources, "Even while
Lake Okeechobee remains at re-
cord lows, counties along the low-
er east coast are now seeing good
signs of recovery as above aver-
age rains replenish groundwater
levels, canals and wetlands."
South Florida's regional water
management system is an inter-
connected network of natural
water bodies, conveyance canals,
water conservation areas and
water control structures. The Kis-


simmee-Okeechobee-Everglades
system is comprised of three pri-
mary regions, each with unique
hydrological features, distinct land
forms and land uses, differing
populations and human impacts,
and notable differences in water
sources and uses. Approximately
seven million South Floridians de-
pend on water from this system.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional,
governmental agency that over-
sees the water resources in the
southern half of the state from
Orlando to the Keys. It is the old-
est and largest of the state's five
water management districts. The
agency's mission is to manage
and protect water resources of the
region by balancing and improv-
ing water quality, flood control,
natural systems and water supply.
A key initiative is cleanup and res-
toration of the Everglades.

Lake Okeechobee muck removal landmark


WEST PALM BEACH In only
six weeks, more than 1.9 million
cubic yards of phosphorus-rich
muck were scraped and trucked
off Lake Okeechobee's dried-
out shoreline, exposed for two
months by this year's drought. In
addition, 1,000 native pond apple
and cypress trees were planted
on the rim canal and spoil islands
near Clewiston, and 1,725 trees
were planted near Moore Haven.
By adding native trees where they
once grew in abundance and
cleaning off the lake's naturally
sandy bottom, critical aquatic
habitats will be restored when
water levels return to normal.
"Lake Okeechobee is going
to be healthier as a result of this
work," said Carol Ann Wehle, Ex-
ecutive Director of the South Flor-
ida Water Management District.
"Although the drought and cur-
rent water shortage have brought
many difficult challenges, they


also provided a real opportunity
for environmental restoration in
the lake."
Muck removal progress
Muck removal'is complete at
two large sites around the perime-
ter of the southeast United States'
largest lake, an achievement
made possible by the prolonged
dry conditions: Work is conclud-
ing at several remaining sites, as
summer rains soaking the muck
are slowing the work and bring-
ing the project to a close.
A total of 134 heavy-equipment
vehicles have been dedicated to
muck removal, including 25 bull-
dozers, 56 off-road dump trucks
and 23 backhoes. Along the lake's
northwest shoreline, where a
total of five large sites are being
cleared, the following progress
has been made to date:
Eagle Bay Marsh: 130,000 cubic
yards removed; $500,000 invested


INI Pete Gawda

No water flowing from river
This dock on the Kissimmee River at Okee-Tantie Camp-
ground and Marina is supposed to be floating. However,
due to the extremely low level of the Kissimmee River, it is
sitting on dry ground. It has been eight months since there
was enough water in the Kissimmee River Basin to release
to Lake Okeechobee.


Northwest Marsh: 850,000 cu-
bic yards removed; $1.9 million
invested
Harney Pond/Horse Island:
400,000 cubic yards removed;
$2.2 million invested
Eagle Bay Island: 350,000 cu-
bic yards removed; $1.8 million
invested
Fisheating Bay: 180,000 cubic
yards removed; $300,000 invested
Once the muck is removed
and lake levels return to nor-
mal, native plants such as tape
grass, spike rush, bulrush and
Kissimmee grass should rapidly
grow and thrive along the sandy
shoreline. These vegetated areas
are ideal spawning and nursery
grounds for sport fish, such as
bass and crappie, and are prime
habitat for apple snails, the prima-
ry food of the snail kite, a federally
endangered, native hawk.
Project managers report that
some vegetation is already start-
ing to grow at the fishing pier in
Okeechobee. About 85 percent of
the new growth is desirable native
plants that can grow underwater;
about 15 percent is undesirable
exotics. The native vegetation is
expected to survive on moist soil
and continued rainfall until the
lake rises to normal levels. The
exotic grasses are likely to die as
they become submerged later this
summer..
Tree planting update
Pond apple forests once grew
on Lake Okeechobee's southern
shore and interior islands before
the trees were cleared a century
ago to create cropland. Low water
levels in the lake have provided an
opportunity to re-establish these
trees to help preserve the endan-
gered Okeechobee gourd habitat.
Also, by increasing the extent of
native trees-particularly pond ap-
ple, cypress and willow, wading
bird populations will benefit.

has taken place on Ritta Island, a
spoil island where farming was
abandoned in the mid-1970s. Dur-
ing the drought in 2001, trees were
planted and a berm removed from'
the island's perimeter to enhance
natural water flow and restore
wetland habitat. With extremely
low lake levels during this year's
drought, access to Ritta Island has
been impaired.
This summer, tree planting ef-
forts were moved to the spoil is-
lands near Clewiston and along
the rim canal, to Moore Haven
Marsh and to the spoil islands in
Fisheating Bay. Project managers
report that 1,000 tiees, each 4-8
feet tall, have been planted in the
Clewiston area. In the Moore Ha-
ven area, 1,725 trees were plant-
ed, each 4-6 feet tall, representing
a mix of pond cypress, bald cy-
press, red maple, swamp bay and
dahoon holly.

ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404

awarded four canal repair con-
tracts totaling more than $6.5


million at its February meeting,
including close to $1.25 million
to install turf reinforcement mats,
rubble riprap and sod along
20,300 linear feet of the C-24 ca-
nal bank in St Lucie County; more
than $1.9.7 million to install turf
reinforcement mats, berm drains,
rubble riprap and sod along
55,070 linear feet of the C-39A
and C-40 canals in Highlands and
Glades counties; more than $1.9
million to install turf reinforce-
ment mats, berm drains, rubble
riprap and sod along 74,180 lin-
ear feet of the C-41 canal bank in
Highlands and Glades counties
and nearly $1.4 million to install

any water from the Kissimmee River Basin was released
to Lake Okeechobee.


gabions and sod along 7,800 lin-
ear feet of the L-12 canal bank in
Palm Beach County. The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture's Natural
Resources Conservation Service
is funding 75 percent of the cost
to repair the L-12 Canal.
"Our water infrastructure must
remain in good operating condi-
tion, and in light of new projec-
tions for an active hurricane sea-
son, it was critical that our agency
get these projects in motion as
quickly as possible," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "A speedy implemen-
tation of the prescribed repairs
will optimize the performance
of these canals and make them
more resilient in the face of future
storm events."
The SFWMD approved nearly
$1.5 million in fiscal year 2006
for canal repairs relating to Hur-
ricane Wilma. Including the four
repair projects announced recent-
ly, the District has also approved
more than $12.1 million to repair
hurricane-damaged canals this
year. The four repair projects are
scheduled for completion this
summer.
South Florida's intricate wa-
ter management system was de-
signed more than 60 years ago
on the premise that its popula-
tion would not exceed 1.4 million
people by the new millennium.


Today, following sound construc-
tion by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers and decades of respon-
sible preventive maintenance by
the SFWMD, this system provides
flood protection for nearly 7 mil-
lion residents.
In addition, the SFWMD con-
tinuously clears and maintains all
lands 40 feet from the top of Dis-
trict canal banks. This preventa-
tive maintenance ensures that de-
bris and obstructions do not enter
the primary drainage system and
mitigates the potentially devastat-
ing impacts of hurricanes on the
canal system. Keeping these ca-
nals open and free of blockages
is paramount to making sure the
drainage system works for the cit-
izens who live in and around the
basins served by these canals.
Today, the District invests close
to $6 million annually on auto-
mation and telemetry systems
to manage more than 60 major
pump stations; double the num-
ber of stations operated with the
same number of staff a decade
ago. Additionally, the District in-
vests more than $14 million each
year to maintain water structures
at strict operating standards,
maintain more than 2,000 miles
of canals and levees and support
a sophisticated communication
systems.

BEST BETS FOR HARDY HOUSE PLANTS


Flowers and foliage can do won-
ders to transform the outer areas
of the home. That is why many real
estate professionals will tell you to
renovate your landscape to
improve curb appeal and promote
a better chance for sale.
Just as plants can make for an
inviting space. outdoors, so, too,
can they revitalize the inside of a
home. House plants have several
advantages. They can impart a
cozy feel to a home, filling in bare
areas of rooms where furniture or
other furnishings would be too
much. Plants are also good for the
environment. They use the carbon
dioxide people and animals respire
and give off the oxygen we need.
This makes them an environmen-
tally friendly addition to the home
and one that can help promote
healthy indoor air. Plants can also
be mood boosters. Caring for them
can be a relaxing hobby, one that
offers a feeling of accomplishment.
Plus, looking at vibrant, healthy
plants can bring a smile to the
lace.
House plants can be cultivated
by just about anyone, even if they
don't possess a green thumb.

They're generally easy to care for,
provided you begin with some .of
the hardier varieties. Here are
some to consider.
1. Philodendron: This plant is
easily identified by its glossy,
heart-shaped leaves. There are
many different species and these
plants are some of the most toler-
ant as house plants. Philodendrons
giow naturally in tropical jungles
and prefer medium light. Direct
sunlight can scorch the leaves.
Even if you forget about it for a
few days, simply watering the plant
can revive it.
2. Wandering jew: This plant
quickly produces a large amount
of foliage. However, in containers
leaves tend to grow toward the end
of the stems, creating a sparse
look. The plant comes with dark or
variegated leaves. It prefers shady
areas.


3. Spider plant: Also known as
the airplane plant, this is another
easy-to-care-for variety. Spider
plants prefer bright natural light,
but will burn in direct sunlight.
Keep the soil evenly moist, but not
soggy. And if leaves tend to brown,
it could be due to the water you
use. Chemicals in municipal water
supplies can damage the plant.
4. Ficus: This plant loves a fil-
tered sunny spot, so place it in a
bright area of the home, but not
one that gets sunlight all day. Its
leaves will fall off if left in the
shade all the time or if it is. over-
watered. It also cares for high
humidity, so mist the plant twice
daily.
5. Pothos: With variegated
leaves, this plant is both attractive
and simple to maintain. It leads the,
way as one of the most popular
house plants. Natural, bright, indi-


rect light is best. The leaves and
stems will get smaller gradually if
not enough light is present. A plant
*that is underwatered will eventual-
ly feature leaves that turn yellow.
then fall off.
General House Plant Care'
Correct light and water is gener-
ally all that is needed to keep house--
plants healthy, particularly these-1
hardy varieties. In terms of water-
ing, place your finger one inch into
the soil. If the soil sticks to your-
finger upon removal, 'it's not vet'
time to water. If the soil is dryand
falls off, it's time to water. House
plants do not need much .in the
terms of fertilization. Fertilizing
once or twice a year is sufficient,
and most enriched potting mixes'a
will provide enough nutrieiints't
sustain house plants.
