Blue Devils win


State champion
football team brings
home national title

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE How would a
football team feel to become state
champions one year and national
champions the following sum-
mer?
Ask the Pahokee Blue Devils
varsity football team.


On Thursday, July 19, the Blue
Devils won the 2007 national sev-
en-on-seven football tournament
in Long Beach, Calif., presented
by Adidas.
In the championship game
against Crespi (Calif.), the Blue
Devils won the contest, 25-24, in
overtime.
Down 24-18, senior quarter-
back Anthony Sheppard con-
nected with running back Vincent
Smith on a 10-yard pass. Then,
wide receiver Martavious Odoms
hauled in a 5-yard touchdown


pass to tie the score and set the
Blue Devils up for a chance to take
home the championship trophy.
On the extra-point conversion,
Odoms was on the receiving end
of what would be the champion-
ship-clinching score.
The opportunity may not have
been possible had it not been for
cornerback Janoris Jenkins, who
broke up a potential extra-point
conversion for Crespi after they
scored on their overtime drive.
Blaze Thompson, the Blue
Devils head coach, said that the

GLADES -A patrol car ride
with the Palm Beach Counri
Sheriff's Oilice i PBSl is an n
unforgettable experience for
someone who is not a police
officer for sheriff's depu-
ties, it's simply another day at
work.
PBSO deputies either work
the day shift or the night shift,
and, while the day shift carries
its own share of problems, it
is the night shift that reveals
more action. Just name it:
shootings, arrests, car chases,


fights a person can find him-
self confronted by all of these
in a single workshift.
I a's assigned to Deputy
Shenll Sohadl Kahn, a rela-
tively new officer with almost
a year of experience with the
sheriff's office. He has an ex-
cellent grasp of his duties.
Prior to the actual ride, I sat
in a room with all of the night
,shift's deputies. I would cross
paths with quite a few of them
during the patrol car ride.
They each listened on as the
supervisor charted the course
for the night.
It was Friday night and it


just happened to be a "hot"
night, with il-e three major
club spots in the Belle Glade
area open Club 21, Caliente
and Black Diamond.
If a fight was to break out
in any of, these areas, then
most, if not all of the deputies
that work in District Five (the
unincorporated areas of the
Glades) and District 13' (Belle
Glade) would have to arrive
at the location to break up the
melee.
The loading ramp in Belle
Glade is another "hot" spot, as
is Rardin Avenue in Pahokee.
The night doesn't really


start until after 10 p.m.
While'they were on duty
at the corner of Avenue G and
'County Road 880, just outside
. of Belle Glade, Deputy Kahn
Sand Deputy Sheriff Juvencio
Rivera watched for vehicles
running the stop sign.
At about 6 p.m., the depu-
ties chased down three offend-
ers, but one lady and her pas-
senger seemed very distraught
at .the occurrence; they tried
to convince the deputies they
had stopped at the stop sign.

Now, he believes, the entire
country knows who the Blue
Devils are.
"When we were there, other
teams across the country were
asking, 'Where's Pahokee?
There's no talent out here,'" said
the head coach. "We showed the
country that we have a lot of tal-
ent coming out of Pahokee."'

Three


accused


of robbery

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Two men
and one woman were arrested in
connection with the July 9 armed
robbery of a 48-year-old man.
Vanessa Carter, 22, and Jo-
ehanson Singleton, 31, face two
counts of robbery with a firearm.
In addition, Joehanson is charged
with two counts of possession of
a weapon by a convicted felon.
Eric A. Hicks, 21, was charged
with two counts of robbery with
a firearm.
According to a statement pro-
vided by the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO), Eugene
Alvin told.-deputies that on July
9, at approximately 8:30 a.m., he
and Marisol De Jesus arrived at
the residence of the woman sus-
pect on Southwest Fifth Street in
Belle Glade.
Officials with the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office say that
the woman suspect, after having
overheard a discussion between
Ms. De Jesus and Mr. Alvin about
the sale of a trailer, may have
thought she could make easy
money by robbing Mr. Alvin, the
prospective buyer.
The female suspect had been
riding in the car with the two
when they discussed the sale.
Mr. Alvin later saw two men
leaving the woman suspect's resi-
dence.
Shortly thereafter, according
.to the sheriff's office, the woman
asked Ms. De Jesus to stop her
vehicle and began talking on her
cellular phone.
Almost simultaneously,, one of
the male suspects placed a gun to
Mr. Alvin's head and ordered him
to give up the money, according
to the report. The two male sus-
pects removed $8,000 frqn Mr.
Alvin's pocket and fled the scene
on foot.
Officials were able to catch up
with all three suspects and placed
them under arrest.

The Sun
BELLE GLADE What's a
great way for the Palm Beach
County's Sheriff's Office (PBSO)
to have a little fun, get out into
the community and establish
critical lines of communication
with residents?
It's a little event known as the
National Night Out. The event
is starting to become a regular
tradition in the Glades and resi-
dents and officers alike look for-
ward to it every year.
This year's event is slated to
be held on Friday, Aug. 3, ac-
cording to Sergeant Linda Ham-


ilton.
Sgt. Hamilton said that the
press conference, to be held at
Pioneer Park, will feature repre-
sentatives from the PBSO, and
community officials from the cit-
ies of Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay. County officials have
also been invited to attend.
The National Night Out event
is scheduled to last from 5 to 9
p.m., featuring free food and
entertainment, according to of-
ficials.
On the entertainment front,
Corporal Natasha Mitchell said
that children can expect face-
painting, bounce houses, rock
climbing and a bicycle rodeo.

tives, the Palm Beach County

A field is flooded flooded down Tabit Road in Belle Glade not far from Gove Elemen-

Cats are safer kept indoors away from injury and illness


The world is full of people that
you don't know and shouldn't
trust. If you wouldn't let your
child roam alone in public with
strangers, why let your cat? From
,diseases to predators, here are 10
reasons from cat experts to keep
your cat indoors:
Outdoor cats are more likely to
contract a disease, such as tape-
worm, salmonella, or rabies. Not
only is this harmful for your cat,
but for your family and friends
as well. "Many of these diseases
can be transmitted to people,"
said Dr. John August, a veterinar-
ian at the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
at Texas A&M University.
"Children are especially sus-
ceptible to these diseases and

many cannot find their way back.
Thousands of lost cats are turned
into shelters every year, many
of which will never be found or

Outdoor cats also contribute
to the overpopulation of felines.
If outdoor cats are not spayed or
neutered, that leaves them able
to reproduce at an unnecessary
rate.
Currently, more cats are be-

wrong judgment in speed or dis-
tance can easily lead to tragedy.
Although this is horrible to imag-
ine, it is a very common situation
seen by veterinarians.
With the large amount of
diseases attacking outdoor cats,
medical bills can soar. That's not
even including the price of pay-


ing for injuries from cat fights or
other accidents that may occur.
"Medical bills should be cheaper
for indoor cats," said Dr. August.
"The problem is that many out-
door pet owners don't bring their
pets in to see us as often, so while
they may not have fees to pay,
their pet may not be healthy."

She is now reunited with her
husband, parents, siblings and
son. What a great reunion. She
left her footprints in the sand of
time. Her wish is that other family

(Marketing Concepts, Inc.) and Anna Garcia.


Tax Collector elects charity partners


PALM BEACH COUNTY The
employees of the Palm Beach
County Tax Collector's office
"elected" next year's charity part-
ners using the Supervisor of Elec-
tion's electronic voting machines
today. The winning charities are:
Walk:: Susan B. Komen, Race for
the Cure; Targeted Drive: Forgot-
ten Soldiers Outreach and Help-
ing Hands: The Lord's Place.
The Tax Collector's office
partnered with the Supervisor of
Elections' office to hold voting
activities. Each branch office and
department had electronic voting
equipment available for employ-
ees to cast ballots. The employees
will decorate the voting areas and
are organizing activities, such as,
a barbeque lunch in Royal Palm
Beach and a pot-luck lunch in


West Palm Beach, to celebrate
Selection Day.
"I believe it is important for the
employees of the Tax Collector to
be involved in their community,"
said Anne M. Gannon, Tax Collec-
tor, Palm Beach County. Building
on a history of community in-
volvement, the employees chose
from three different charities, in
three different categories. The
three categories are "Workout
for a Cure" (Walks/Runs), "Help-
ing Hands" (Home Improve-
ment/Community Development),
"Share our Bounty" (Targeted
Drives/Collections).
"Selection Day" was created
and organized by the employ-
ees on the Community Relations
Committee. The committee sur-
veyed the organization to identify


charitable activity preferences,
created charity options based on
criteria determined in the survey
process.
"Our Selection Day Process is
a great way for the Tax Collectors
Office to become visible in the
community in a way that citizens
may not be accustomed to seeing
us. Choosing charities through
the voting process will be a great
way to ensure that each charity
has a special place in the hearts
and minds of our employees,"
said Jim McConnell, Branch Man-
ager, West Palm Beach.
"We, as an organization who
services the public, should also
have a keen since of social re-
sponsibility," said Danielle Dale,
senior customer service specialist
and member of the Community


Relations Committee.
"I'm proud of our employee's
heart-felt efforts to organize such
an important.initiative. Charitable
activities not only improve the
communities in which we live
and work, but they also improve
our office morale," said Ms. Gan-
non.
Other charities on the bal-
lot included: Workout for a Cure
-American Heart Association;
American Diabetes Association -
Step out to fight Diabetes, Komen
South Florida Affiliate Race for
the Cure, Helping Hands Habitat
for Humanity Paint Your Heart

Harold Ostrow, now retired from volunteer service was re-
cently honored for his many years of service and leadership.


Volunteer recognized


for years of service


WEST PALM BEACH In a
presentation at the Health Care
District Board meeting, former
Board Chair Harold Ostrow was
honored for his fifteen years of
+ leadership and volunteer service
with the Health Care District of
Palm Beach County. Presenting
Mr. Ostrow with a plaque and
proclamation, Board Chairman
Stanley Pierce, JD, PhD said:
"Harold Ostrow is the most dedi-
cated, selfless person I know. He
has been an inspiration to me and
I'm sure, to all others who hAve
had the privilege of working with
him and knowing him."
Mr. Ostrow, 79, has retired
from his tireless volunteer work
wNh the District. He served as
Commissioner on the Health
Care District Board from Oct. 1,
1992 through Sept. 30, 2000. From
1994 to 1996, Mr. Ostrow served
as Vice Chair and from 1997 to
1999 he presided as Board Chair-
man. Mr. Ostrow also served as a
member of the District's Finance
Committee from 2002 to 2007 and
from 2000 to 2007 served on the
District's Trauma Advisory Com-
mittee. In addition, Mr. Ostrow
served on the Judicial Nominat-
ing Commission of the 15t Judi-
cial Circuit as well as chaired the
Citizens Advisory Committee of


the Solid Waste Authority of Palm
Beach County.
During his years of service,
Mr. Ostrow's vision led to the
creation of the successful School
Health and Behavioral Health pro-
grams, which improve the health
and well-being of approximately
170,000 public school students
every year. In 1998, Mr. Ostrow
also initiated a new era of lifesav-
ing care for Palm Beach County's
Trauma System by signing the
contract with Sikorsky Aircraft for
two state-of-the-art Trauma Hawk
Aeromedical helicopters. In 2006,
the nationally-recognized Trauma
program served more than 3,200
residents and visitors who needed
lifesaving care. Ninety-five' per-
cent of the trauma patients who
arrived at Palm-Beach County's
two Trauma Centers with vital
signs survived.
After accepting the plaque, Mr.
Ostrow said to the Commission-
ers: "I am truly humbled and most
appreciative of this honor and I
thank each of you for it. Actually, I
should have given the Health Care
District the award for enabling me
to receive such psychic rewards.
The satisfaction that one receives
from doing public service like this
can only be appreciated by those
who do it."

BELLE GLADE Elaine Gul-
ley, R.N. was honored with the
First Annual R.N. of the Year
award for her dedication, service,
compassion and commitment to
the patients and fellow staff at
Glades General Hospital
For the first time in its history,
Glades General Hospital named
an R.N. of the Year, L.P.N. of
the Year, C.N.A. of the Year and
gave an Extra-Mile Award to staff
whose contributions to nursing


have made a profound impact on
patient care and fellow employ-

Individuals nominated had to
consistently display dedication to
excellence beyond the scope of
his/her job, serve as an inspira-
tion to others, discover new ways
to assist those in need and display
compassion and caring on a daily
basis.
These minimal requirements
had to be demonstrated by exam-


pies of community service, will-
ingness to help, positive attitude,
dependability, and compassion.
Nominations came& from fel-
low employees and managers.
"We were very pleased with the
number and quality of nomina-
tions", said Mary Weeks, RN and
Chief Nursing Officer. "It was
a wonderful affirmation of the
compassionate and highly skilled
nurses that care for our patients
on a daily basis."

Farmers urged to heed upcoming deadline


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
landowners with base acres and
yields have until Aug. 3, to enroll
in the 2007 Direct and Counter-cy-
clical Payment Program (DCP).
The DCP provides payments
to eligible producers on farms en-
rolled in the program for the 2002
through 2007 crop years. There
are two types of DCP payments
- direct payments and counter-cy-
clical payments. USDA computes
payments using the base acres


and payment yields established
for the farm. The Farm Security
and Rural Investment Act of 2002
(2002 Farm Bill) authorized DCP.
"Eligible producers should
enroll in DCP before the Aug. 3,
deadline to avoid paying a late
fee," said Kelley. Producers failing
to sign up by Aug. 3, but before
Sept. 30, will have to pay a late-
file fee of $100.
Farm producers must apply for
DCP on an annual basis and can


opt out of participating in DCP for
any year if they so choose.
In March 2007, FSA extended
the DCP sign-up deadline to Aug.
3.
The original DCP enrollment
deadline was June 1. The final
date to enroll in the 2007 DCP is
Sept. 30. Enrollment in DCP for
the 2007 contract period began
Oct. 1, 2006.
Interested farmers or land-
owners are asked to contact the
local FSA office at for information


on program eligibility and the re-
quired documents necessary for
sign-up.
More information about DCP
is also available in the program
fact sheet found online at: http://
www.fsa.usda.gov/Internet/FSA_
File/dcp06.pdf.

programs, visit your local USDA'

Citrus Greening Disease spreads to neighboring county


LAKELAND Citrus greening
has been confirmed for the first
time in Hardee County, one of
Florida's largest citrus producing
counties.
SThe disease, also known as
huanglongbing, was found in a
commercial grove just north of
the DeSoto County line.
Hardee County is home to
more than 45,000 acres of citrus
making it the sixth largest citrus
producing county in Florida, ac-
cording to the United States De-
partment of Agriculture.
"Growers are doing all they can
to manage this disease but the key
to beating it once and for all is re-
search," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive vice president/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual. "We're
moving in that direction, but we
must continue. I'm confident we


WEST PALM BEACH The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict today adopted a resolution
assuring that Everglades restora-
tion projects completed as part of
the state's accelerated construc-
tion initiative will, first and fore-
most, benefit the natural system.
The resolution also commits that
the water made available for the
natural system will be dedicated
for that purpose and will be pro-
tected from allocation to water
users. This action provides clear
direction that the priority purpose
of the projects is to address envi-
ronmental needs and establishes
consistency with the new region-
al water availability rule that went
into effect in April limiting with-
drawals from the famed River of
Grass to meet future water supply

"\\e are fully committed to
the joint federal-state partnership
to restore America's Everglades
and these steps ensure that wa-.
ter intended for the restoration
and protection of South Florida's
natural systems is safeguarded
from other uses," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "Our goal has always
been twofold: to keep the positive
restoration momentum moving
forward and to maximize con-
sistency of our Acceler8 projects
with the federal process."

"Growers are doing all they can to manage this

can beat this disease through ag-
gressive and well-funded research
coupled with best management
practices at the grove level."
Citrus greening is a bacterial
disease that reduces production
and can kill trees. It has signifi-
.nlvi, r rlltn,-rl itrtic nrlnliotnn


sula, and,Brazil. The disease spe-
cifically attacks citrus plants and
presents no threat to humans or
animals.
Citrus greening is primarily
spread by the Asian citrus psyllid.
Florida Citrus Mutual and other
nri cdutr r rou : are working to


Development Act (WRDA), the
Comprehensive Everglades Res-
toration Plan (CERP) included
provisions for the reservation
or allocation of any new water
created by the projects through
agreed-upon federal and state
processes. Since then, the District
has imposed limitations on per-
mits for Everglades water to ad-
dress environmental concerns on
the assumption that CERP would
be implemented as scheduled.
In October 2004, the state an-
nounced Acceler8, a far-reaching
initiative to expedite the funding,
design and construction of a se-
ries of critical Everglades resto-
ration projects that will restore
70,000 acres of wetlands, expand
water treatment areas and pro-
vide 425,000 acre-feet of addition-
al water storage a decade ahead
of schedule. Construction of five
of the eight Acceler8 projects is
under way.
"In advance of Congressional
authorization and funding of in-
dividdal Everglades projects, the
state has stepped up the pace on
construction and protection initia-
tives," said SFWMD Executive Di-
rector Carol Ann Wehle. "Today's
action assures the public and our
various partners that the opera-
tion of these projects will contin-
ue to be consistent with the intent
outlined in the Water Resources
Development Act of 2000, and
that the water made available for
the natural system will, indeed,


be identified and protected."
While moving forward on a
parallel track, construction of the
.Acceler8 projects is outpacing the
completion of federally-mandat-
ed reports. Environmental groups
and other stakeholders have ex-
pressed a strong desire for the
South Florida Water Management
District to maintain consistency
with the federal process when
constructing the CERP-related
Acceler8 projects, including the
development and completion of
Project Implementation Reports
and subsequent rulemaking pro-
cesses.
"While the resolution is not a
legal requirement, we believe it
is the right thing to do," said Ken
Ammon, the District's Deputy Ex-
ecutive Director for Everglades
Restoration. "It clearly captures
and outlines the District's com-
mitment to comply with the
WRDA 2000. provisions to reserve
and provide water for the envi-
ronment."
Once Congress authorizes a
Project Implementation Report
which encompasses a completed
and operating Acceler8 project,
any existing or interim protection
measures and operation plans
will be reviewed and modified
where necessary to ensure con-
sistency. All processes and rule-
making actions include various
opportunities for public involve-
ment and comment.

Community profile: 'Dimmy' Dorsey


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The youth in
the community look up to him as
a leader, mentor and a motivator.
He was the head coach for the
Glades Central Raiders freshman
football team last year. The team
finished with an undefeated sea-
son at 6-0.
Currently, he is the Belle Glade
Weed and Seed Safe Haven man-
ager, which enablesihim to make
an impact on the youth that at-
tend there during the week.
Many in the Glades area also
consider him a humorous, intel-
ligent, and genuine'individual.
He is Wenfred 'Dimmy' Dors-
ey.
Question: Where did you get
your nickname 'Dimmy'?
Answer: It comes from my
middle name, which is Dimitrus.
My mother, Wilma Royal, gave
that to me. It's what most of my
friends and people who really
know me call me.
Question: What are some
things that make you look for-
ward to your day?
Answer: Being able to get
up in the morning and wake up
beside my wife, Anne, and talk
to God. Making a difference in
the lives of people is something I
look forward to every day.
Question: When did you de-
cide to be a-mentor to the youth
in the Glades area?
Answer: It was a vision that
was placed in my heart by God.
Several years ago, I think it was
1997, just seeing all the violence
in our communities all over the
nation with the youth just out
there and no one being a positive
influence to them. The youth are
being raised by video games and
BET Bad Educational Televi-
sion. I look forward to everyday
God has given me to do good in
the lives of people.
Question: What inspired you
to become a mentor?
Answer: Just thinking about


my l.fe and'some of the bad
choices that I made in the past. I
could rememberyears ago getting
involved in some illegal activities.
I understand what negativity can
and will do to a community. We
have people who have the com-
munities' best interests at heart.
They are doing their very best
to curtail the violence within our
communities: We have to under-
stand that we cannot deal with
new 'wine with old wineskins.
Let's walk out of our front doors,
take a look around and see. If that
does not inspire you to do some-
thing or be a mentor, something
is definitely wrong with you.
Question: Aside from being
a mentor, what are some of your
other talents and interests?
Answer: Preaching, singing,
acting, reading and listening. Act-
ing in 'The Perfect Man' produc-
tion was a great experience for
me. It just allowed me to spread
my wings, do something different
and do something that I enjoy do-
ing. I believe we all should spread
our wings and learn how to live
and have fun. But my greatest gift
is that of ministry, preaching the
gospel. It gives me joy, unspeak-
able joy to see the lives of people
changed, transformed, empow-
ered and new. This is what the
gospel does for individuals. That's
my greatest interest.
Question: What moment
in your life do you believe has
had the greatest impact on you?
Why?
Answer: The moment was
when I accepted Jesus Christ
into my heart because the very
moment I accepted Christ, every
struggle, wear, past and present
pain was moved and it disap-
peared. I could remember having
anger and bitterness about one
individual who I thought did me
wrong. After that, God has taught
me about forgiveness and he's
still teaching me about the power
.of forgiveness.
Question: Who is the great-


est inspiration in your life?
Answer: There are many men
and young, old and young, who
have made an impact on me. For
me to be inspired by just one per-
son would be a disservice to oth-
ers. I'm inspired by people in the
Glades, how we come from noth-
ing and make something out of
ourselves. I'm inspired when you
see a girl from Fifth Street in Belle
Glade that came from nothing but
became something. I'm inspired
when I go into City Place in West
Palm Beach and remember that it
was the hood at one point.
Question: Looking back in
your life, are there any moments
that you regret?
Answer: There are some
things that I've done that I'm not
proud of and been involved in, but
to say that I have regrets, no. My
life has been up and down, but
everything that has happened to
me was part of 'The Plan.' If I had
to live my life again, I wouldn't
change a thing.
Question: What are some
things that irk you?
Answer: One of the things
that irk me is that as people, we
can limit ourselves. We've just
fallen into this thing for settling
for whatever people bring to us.
We just settle in things that make
us complacent. We settle in our
jobs, our churches, and our re-
lationships. We let everything by
everything.
Question: What is your fa-
vorite quote?
Answer: It just depends on
what I'm faced with for the day.
For whatever opposition that I
face, there's a quote for every
situation that I'm faced with. And
to say that I have just one favorite,
again, it's just a disservice to all
of the other favorite quotes that I
have.

crash hurts


local man

By Mark Carr
A motorcycle crash in Paho-
kee left one injured Sunday.
The driver of an off-road mo-
torcycle was injured Sunday
afternoon, July 22, when he
crashed his cycle in front of 8764
Doveland Drive in Pahokee. Palm
Beach County Fire-Rescue's En-
gine 72-Bravo, one of two fire en-
gines stationed in Pahokee, and
an ambulance from American
Medical Response found the vic-
tim lying in the roadway of his de-
velopment being tended to by a
nurse from the area. Firefighter/
Paramedics and Emergency Med-
ical Technicians stabilized the
patient before loading him onto a
stretcher and into the ambulance
for transport to Glades General
Hospital in Belle Glade.
The crashed motorcycle
seems to have faired better than
its rider. The wrecked cycle
was nowhere to be found. Ac-

Fire Engine Crew brings new life to South Bay


By Mark V. Carr
SOUTH BAY Firefighters re-
sponding to a call of abdominal
pain were surprised early July 16,
\ hen their patient was found to
be in active labor The 14-year-old
patient and mother of a toddler,
was found in a tub in a poorly lit
bathroom crying for help when
firefighters from the Palm Beach
County Fire-Rescue station in


South Bay arrived.
Lt. Geraldine Jaramillo, first
on the scene with her fire engine
crew and the only Spanish speak-
er on the crew, was faced with
a hysterical family member and
patient that only spoke Spanish.
Upon quickly assessing the situ-
ation, Lt. Jaramillo, the only para-
medic on the scene, was able to
determine that the five-month


pregnant mother was preparing
to deliver imminently. The crew,
with Lt. Jaramillo's leadership,
sprung into action and began
preparations for the birth. It was
only a matter of seconds, after
moving the mother to a more
lighted spot in the house, before
the baby was delivered still in its
protective sack.
Within a few additional min-


utes, an ambulance from Ameri-
can Medical Transport arrived
and transported the mother and
the newborn baby girl to Glades
General Hospital, both in good
condition. Lt. Jaramillo and her
crew performed exception-
ally well in the face of uncertain
and difficult circumstances and
brought the situation under con-
trol professionally and with a suc-
cessful outcome.

Thunderstorms bring more threats of area wildfires


STUART Local thun-
derstorms have increased the
amount of wildfires throughout
the Okeechobee District. During
the summer months, most wild-
fires result from lightning, most
notably dry lightning. Lightning
strikes provide the heat necessary
to ignite numerous new wildfires.
These ignitions can smolder for
days before erupting into flames.
Once a storm subsides the
Florida Division of Forestry's fixed
wing aircraft is sent aloft to as-
sess and monitor the most active
areas of lightning strikes. Most of
the wildfires caused by lightning
strikes are in remote areas with
thick vegetation. Forestry fixed


wing aircraft can easily spot the
wildfires and then direct local fire-
fighters to the fire's location be-
fore it becomes unmanageable.
On July 20, a wildfire sparked
by lightning burned 20 acres on
Glades County Hunt Club Road.
The drought index for Glades
County was listed as 285 in a
range from 0-800.
Okeechobee County expe-
rienced a wildfire that burned
more than 60 acres in a fire that
also occurred on July 20. The fire
was visible for miles occurring on
a wooded site on U.S. Hwy. 441
(across from the Circle K).
Thanks to recent heavy rains,
the drought index for Okeechobee


was posted on July 23, at 235 in a
range of 0-800.
Residents living in or near for-
ested or wildland areas should
make their homes as safe as pos-
sible from the threat of wildfires by
following FIREWISE guidelines.
Structures should be surrounded
by a lean, clean, and green buffer
zone extending outward from the
home at least 30 feet in all direc-
tions. This area should be free of
highly flammable vegetation and
should be well maintained. Accu-
mulated leaves, pine needle's and
twigs should be removed from
roofs and gutters. Hazardous ma-
terials including wood, vehicles
and propane tanks, should not be


stored next to the house.
Report all wildfires quickly to
the nearest fire department. If you
see anyone acting suspiciously
before, during or after a wildfire
has started, please contact the
Arson Alert Hotline at 1 (800) 342
5869. You may be eligible for up
to a reward of up to $5,000 for
information leading to the arrest
and convection of woods arson-
ist.
If you want to know if your
home is at risk for a wildfire, you
can contact the local Division of

Genetic model predicts how


plants and animals will grow


By Stu Hutson
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE, Fla. Rongling
Wu is out to prove Mark Twain
clearly didn't know a darn thing
about genetics.
"Lies and damn lies" notwith-
standing, Mr. Twain's much-ma-
ligned statistics are our best shot at
reading the truth within the coded
messages of DNA -- whether that
of a person or a poplar tree.
Mr. Wu is developing a tech-
nique that will help farmers pre-
dict how fast crops will grow. And
thanks to an $855,000 grant from
the National Science Foundation,
he will soon use the same tech-
nology to speed the process of
creating new lifesaving drugs.
Using massive amounts of sta-
tisticAl data, he's built a computer
modeling technique that helps
predict how a plant or animal's
bodily functions and growth are
affected by complex genetic inter-
actions.
"The very important thing
about this approach is how uni-
versal it is," said Mr. Wu, a pro-
fessor of statistical genetics at the
University of Florida's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Every day, thousands of re-
searchers toil away at uncovering
the process by which genes con-
trol and create life. Every discov-
ery brings understanding, but the
search will be virtually unending
-- life's processes bring chemical
structures and actions that are
nearly boundless in their variety.
So Mr. Wu's process focuses
on the big picture. In short, he
watches what happens on a large


scale, and then statistically corre-
lates that with genetic interactions
he knows are taking place on a
small scale.
"You can look at one gene and
one result," Mr. Wu said. "But we
need to know more -- we know
that genes play together."
Mr. Wu's technique, called
functional mapping, produces a
computer model that uses known
gene interactions along with ex-
pected environmental conditions.
He began his research more
than a decade ago with plant vari-
ations. For example, he examined
how soil nutrients interacted with
genetic traits of black cottonwood
trees to produce differing growth
rates.
Over the years, he expanded
his tinkering of functional analy-
sis, publishing a comprehensive
explanation in the March 2006
issue of the journal Nature Genet-
ics.
His work eventually looked at
how drugs interplay with human
genomics, a field known as phar-
macogenetics. He began to use
data from the University of Flor-
ida's Health Science Center and
the Duke University's Institute for
Genome Sciences and Policy.
In May, he and colleagues
published the first major analysis
of functional mapping models
of human drug responses in the
journal Bioinformatics. The work
examined how different genes af-
fected heart rate when exposed to
the drug Dobutamine.
"This model means that we
can get a very important part of
the big picture for drug trials,"
: said Min Lin, a research colleague


of Mr. Wu's at Duke University.
That big picture, she said, could
limit human trials for experimen-
tal drugs or help weed out unnec-
essarily risky drugs earlier.
The process, of course, has a
margin of error.
"There are many strange things
that can arise with any process
this complicated," Ms. Lin said.
"This is just predicting what will
most likely happen. Not how it
will happen."
"Still, all clinical trials use statis-
tics that take the greatest results,"
she added. "This is a tool that will
just enhance the process."
The program designed by Mr.
Wu's team during its heart re-
search can be downloaded from
the University of Florida's Statisti-
cal Genetics Group Web site at
http://www.stat.ufl.edu/genetics/
software.html. However, this pro-
gram will be paltry compared to
Wu's next endeavor. Shortly after
the publication of his latest work
in Bioinformatics, Wu received an
$855,000 NSF grant to construct a
user-friendly functional model for
anyone pursing pharmacogenetic
research.
The programming may be es-
pecially useful in light of world-
wide efforts to match genetic
profiles with .physical traits, such
as The Pharmacogenetics and
Pharmacogenomics Knowledge
Base (PharmGKB).
"I am excited that we can help
bring this process to more people
at a time where we are able to col-
lect enough information to make
it useful," Mr. Wu said. "Hopefully,
this will become used all over the
world."


Horse owners need hurricane plan


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Floridians receive plenty of
advice each year from various
and sundry experts for hurricane
season. When making your hur-
ricane plans, don't forget the live-
stock.
Most horse owners aren't able
to evacuate their horses when a
storm is coming. According to Pat
Hogue of the Okeechobee Coop-
erative extension Service, few
+ places exist that will take horses
brought from areas impacted by-
storms.
Some preparations are the
same for horses as for people:
"have important documents gath-
ered in a Ziplock bag or other wa-
terproof container to keep read-
ily accessible." For horses, this
means Coggins tests, inoculation
records, vet's name and phone
number.
Recognizing that the veterinar-
ian's phone may be out and you
may not be able to reach him,
put together a basic first aid kit
that will enable you to deal with
emergencies yourself in your
vet's absence. A general list might
be: bandages suitable for horses,
a supply of Bute, antibiotic oint-
ment, fly/mosquito repellant,
hoof pick, wound dressing, pliers
to pull out nails, since flying de-
bris may get stuck in hooves.
"A real problem after Hur-
ricane Andrew and Charlie was
identifying horses that ,were
found wandering loose after the
storm passed," said Pat Hogue,
Okeechobee County Livestock
Agent. "There are marking paint
branding systems that use special
paint available at livestock sup-
ply stores or online," said Agent
Hogue. "Latex paint would work
in a pinch, too anything, just so
your horse can be identified."
"Few horse owners accept
that the safest place for a horse
in a hurricane is out in an open
pasture. Out in the open, there is
little chance of the horse's being
injured by flying debris", he con-
tinued, "Whereas, if the horse is
in a stable or barn and it comes
down, it is very likely that the

ing it. She received a ticket after
showing deputies her old and
new licenses. According to the
state's traffic statutes, having two
licenses in your possession is a
misdemeanor.
We then headed to a house call
at Okeechobee Center at about
8:30 p.m., where one Spanish-
speaking man would be charged
with battery.
It was a domestic dispute, but
this one was bloody.
According to deputies, the sus-
pect, Daniel Vargas, had a bloody
toe and had just gotten into a fight
with his Wife's brother the wife
and the suspect had a dispute
with each other.
Though it was unclear what
the dispute was about, the wife
had tried to break up the fight.
The suspect was taken to jail.
Deputy Kahn had to be careful
not to come in contact with any
blood; he wore gloves to ensure
his safety.
The suspect was then taken
to Glades General Hospital to be
checked out primarily for his
toe.
It was now 10 p.m., and I then
rode with Deputy Sheriff Michael
Bickunas, a New Jersey native, to
the loading ramp a nighttime
"hang out" spot. Some residents
in the Glades are afraid of roam-
ing into the area at night, and say
that something should be done.
to rid the streets of drug dealers,
prostitutes and the blaring loud


Night

Sheriff's Office will be issuing hel-
mets for the children's safety.
Also coming out to the event
will be sheriff's office helicopter
and a mounting unit.
Corporal Mitchell is excited
about what the event will offer.
"National Night Out gives the
community the opportunity to in-
teract with law enforcement," said
the corporal. "I think it will bring
the community and law enforce-
ment together in terms of solving
crimes in the Glades area."
One of the bigger obstacles en-
countered by deputies in the area
is the relative lack of cooperation
from witnesses who may have
witnessed a crime. Fearing retalia-
tion, many prefer to stay quiet. The
National Night Out event sets out
to change that.
The local event is part of a larg-


music in the area.
On Friday, however, the scene
was was largely peaceful.
Before long, dispatch called in
two incidents a shooting and a
fight at Club 21.
Deputy Bickunas got the call to
respond to Club 21, after having
patrolled some time at the Black
Diamond Club, which was also
under control.
Deputies asked one man to
leave the area, and although he
initially refused, he walked away.
Deputies did not immediately find
evidence to support that a shoot-
ing had taken place.
Later, just past midnight, Dep-
uty Bickunas received another
shooting call, and rode to an
apartment on Southwest Seventh
Street.
Two rounds had been fired
into the second floor apartment
window. No one could say who
the shooter was, and, fortunately,
no one had been injured in the
incident.
The deputy was called back to
Club 21, where a fight had sup-
posedly broken out.
Ten patrol cars were on hand
to control the situation. Thanks to
the appearance of law enforce-
ment authorities, no one was seri-
ously injured. The crowd eventu-
ally dispersed.
Like some cosmic yo-yo, Dep-
uty Bickunas received a call to re-
turn to Southwest Seventh Street.
It was not long after 1 a.m. at that
point.
As the patrol car arrived, the
sound of something sharp in the
air sounded, and police reported


er nationwide effort, designed to
increase crime prevention aware-
ness.
According to Captain Rolando
Silva, the District Five commander,
the event is sure to be a success.
He anticipates as much.
"It sends the world a message:
that we're serious about crime and
everyone is on board," said the
captain. "We use that night to let
the community see that we have a
lot to offer."
Sgt. Hamilton said that for the
event, sheriff's deputies will be
on the look out for citizens inter-
ested in establishing crime watch
programs in their own neighbor-
hoods.
The sergeant expects law en-
forcement and commun-nui mem-
bers to be united that night.
"It's one big neighborhood
block party," said Sgt. Hamilton.
"We're walking together against
crime."

more shots,being fired.
"Get down," Deputy Bickunas
said, and, without thinking twice,
we huddled by his patrol car.
Again, no one could say defini-
tively who had fired the rounds.
A flashlight was shined on ev-
eryone at the scene, officers and
citizens nearby, to make sure that
everyone was okay.
The county's Violent Crimes
Unit came out and talked to a
man believed to be the intended
target.
While the unit was talking to
the man, the deputies were in pur-
suit of a subject, and some were
running toward Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr. Boulevard, others were
riding swiftly down the road.
More shots were allegedly fired
near Southwest Fourth Street.
An uneasy feeling loomed over
while deputies secured the scene
until 3:30 a.m. All of the officers
seemed alert, focused on the
possibility that another shooting
could happen at Southwest Sev-
enth Street.
Nobody had been harmed, but
the feeling was that it was simply
a matter of time before something
more serious happened.
There's no way to stop some-
thing like that completely, officers
know.
Looking around, not a lot
- could be seen far off in the distant
dark, and the silent figures re-
mained hard to see. All that could
be traced to them was the sound
of another dispatch call coming
through.

horse will be badly injured or
killed."
"Both horses and cows will
stand with their tails to the wind,
until the wind gets up to a certain
strength, then they will lie down,"
he explained.
In preparation for a storm, lay
in good supply of your horse's
feed and hay. The pasture may be
flooded or supplies limited due
to widespread damage after the
storm.
Before the storm, mark your
horse with paint or put your name
address and phone number on
your horse's halter. Put the halter
on the horse. Make sure you use
a "breakaway" halter in case the
horse gets caught on something.
Some horse owners write their


name and phone number with
a permanent marker on a piece
of duct tape on the horse's.hoof.
Make sure the hoof is clean and
dry before affixing the tape, and
the tape should stay in place until
you remove it. Make sure the tape
is not on the coronary band at the
top of the hoof.
"Other backyard animals like
chickens and turkeys should be
sheltered from the storm as these
animals are not likely to seek shel-
ter from the weather and can, in
fact, drown," said Agent Hogue.
"In 2004, many goats sickened
and died after the storms from
being kept in standing water too
many days. Locate high ground
nearby where your animals could
stay until the water recedes," sug-
gested Agent Hogue.
Foot rot, as the old timers will
tell, will result if horse's feet are
wet for too long also. Watch for a
softening of hooves.


FWC publishes boating accident stats


Florida's boating accident rate
(671) for 2006 was second only
to California's 757. Florida led
the nation with 69 fatalities, com-
pared to 47 for Texas and 44 for
California.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
said the high numbers reflect the
reality that Floridians own more
than 1 million registered recre-
ational vessels and they use them
throughout the year.
All but eight of the fatalities
were the result of drowning and
none of the drowning victims
were wearing life jackets.
The most likely county for
boaters to be in an accident was
Monroe, followed in order by
Palm Beach, Miami-Dade, Pinel-
las, Lee, Broward, Collier, Bre-


vard, Escambia and Duval.
The most likely month for the
accident to happen was July. The
most likely time of day to be in
an accident was 4-6 p.m. and the
most common type of accident
was a collision with another ves-
sel or a fixed object.
Accidents occur most fre-
quently on rivers or creeks, but
the number of accidents on the
ocean or gulf or in a bay or sound
are almost as high. Nearly 600
of the state's accidents occurred
while the vessel was cruising and
more than 400 of them occurred
when the operator was not try-
ing to change direction while
cruising. Small vessels, especially
those under 18 feet long, were
the most likely to be involved in
accidents.


A typical accident, involved a
privately owned vessel, operated
carelessly or without a lookout,
with the operator being a male at
least 22 years old most likely 36-
50 years old.
The 85-page report on 2006
boating accidents in Florida is
available online at MyFWC.com/

At Pioneer Park: Morning workouts Railcats sell Blackwell's contract


The Gary SouthShore RailCats
Professional Baseball Club an-
nounced July 22 that the contract
of pitcher Chad Blackwell has
been sold to the Toronto Blue
Jays organization. He will report
to the Blue Jays Advanced Single-
A club, Dunedin, in the Florida
State League.
Blackwell, a former Clewiston
resident, pitched in 29 games with
the RailCats this season, posting a


record of 4-0 with a 1.09 earned
run average and four saves. He al-
lowed only 25 hits in 41.1 innings,
walking just 14 and striking out
38. Opposing batters hit only .188
against Blackwell.
Blackwell is a product of the
University of South Carolina,
where he led the nation in saves
in 2004. He was drafted by the
Kansas City Royals in June of


2004 and spent two seasons in
the Royals organization before
spending the 2006 season in the
Pittsburg Pirates organization.
Blackwell becomes the 16t"
RailCats player to be sold to a ma-
jor league organization. He hopes
to join pitcher Tim Byrdak and
outfielder Nathan Haynes as play-
ers to play in the major leagues
after playing for the RailCats.

Dear Lord, am I too comfortable?


By Jackie Miller,
minister First Christian
Church, Clewiston
I live in a Nation where my
freedom was (is) purchased by
the sacrifices of others; therefore,
many times I forget that political
freedom is costly and that it was
uncomfortable for those who
purchased my freedom.
I live in a home adequate for
my needs. It is warm in the win-
ter and cool in the summer. The
rain and hail cannot penetrate its
roofs and walls. But Lord, I did


not build that house. I did not buy
one stick of wood or one brick.
I did not work one hour to con-
struct it. Loving, considerate, dar-
ing people, who lived before me,
sacrificed in order that I might live
in such a house. They became un-
comfortable in order that I might
be comfortable sweating in the
hot sun as they labored.
Lord, I worship in a Church
Building I did not build. It is ade-
quate for my needs and the needs
of many others. In fact, Lord,
it would accommodate two or


three times as many as customar-
ily attend services.
Lord, I enjoy a Fellowship with
you and with Christian people.
I can lay my head on my pillow
at night and be conscious of my
sins and shortcomings and at the
same tithe, be aware that when I
confess them, they are forgiven (I
John 1:9). You experienced great
suffering and death in order that I
might be comforted.
Lord, is it possible that I am
too comfortable? The only reason
others are not enjoying all these


things is because I am unwill-
ing to be uncomfortable to help
them enjoy them. Am I too po-
litically complacent; letting others
shoulder the responsibility to pro-
vide "the land of the free and the
home of the brave"?
Am I impervious of the fact
that there are hundreds; yea thou-
sands, within a short distance of
this comfortable church building
who need to know You and the
salvation that You alone can give?
Am I too comfortable to get out
and make it happen.


When a child does well, the Father glories


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
My dog-child Pepper won "The
Most Patriotic Pet" award at Clew-
iston's Fourth of July celebration
this month. Even though I never
thought I would admit that I would
call myself the parent of a four
legged creature, I remembered
what my own father had shared
with me about the feelings of ec-
stasy that are felt when your child
does well. I was a proud papa and
Pepper made me proud.
Truth be known, it was raining
hard right before the competition
and I was one of the few who
dragged my dog out to the contest
and Pepper was the only one in her
category, but that didn't matter to
Pepper. Actually, she was having
so much fun meeting and greeting
the other dogs and people with
me, that the contest wasn't even a
consideration. It didn't matter that
the weather was inclement or that
she was wearing a shirt she had


never worn before. Her master
had dressed her and she was with
her master and that was all that
really mattered
to her.
The next day
we had a vet ad-
venture. It was
storming and
Pepper doesn't
like thunder, but
she was doing
okay, because John
she was with Hicks
her master. She
also didn't like the idea of be-
ing probed and given shots. But
again, the master's hand and hold
kept her from losing it completely
(although she was a little bit more
"nippy" to others than usual).
Everywhere I go, Pepper wants
to go. She walks me to the door
when I leave each day and she
anxiously looks for me to return
each night so she can greet me
with a wagging tail and puppy-
dog kisses. The neighbors across
the street have a white pickup


truck like mine. If they get home
before I do, Pepper can't under-
stand where I was and why I'd
park my truck over there.
But for Pepper, it is more than
just wanting to be with her mas-
ter, she wants to relate and inter-
act with him. She brings her toys
to me so I can play with her. She
wants to jump in my lap and have
me rub her belly. That is not to say
that Pepper doesn't have her mo-
ments. But the displeasure of not
being in her master's presence or
good graces has always brought
her back.
I've learned a lot about being
a disciple from watching our dog.
You see, Pepper's big issue is basic:
"Where is my master right now?"
The dog made her decision where
she'll be wherever her master is
so she can walk with him and do
things with him and let him know
she is his own; and the joy we
share as we tarry there, is one of
the best things ever known.
So it is with a disciple of Jesus.
Where is my Master? I don't care


where it takes me or what I have
to go through, I just want to be
where my Master is. I want to walk
with Him and relate with Him and
let Him know I am His own.
In John 12:26, Jesus says,
"Whoever serves Me must fol-
low Me; and where I am My ser-
vant also will be." Jesus is talking
about the central response of
a disciple. "Find out where my
master is going and I'm going to
go there, too." This kind of alle-
giance to the Master's direction is
what being a disciple is all about.
It's not just about having the right
beliefs. It's not just about hanging
around with the right people. We
want to be where our master is as
He wants to move deeper into our
lives. As He moves in that place
where we work, where we play,
and where .we serve, let us fol-
low His lead there as well. Let us
follow where our Master is going
and contribute to what He's trying
to do with dog-like faithfulness.
After all, the anagram for D.O.G.
stands for Depend On God!

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Someone coined the phrase
"learning by consequences" and
I had seen it long before I learned
that it had been identified. I used
to help my father ......
with household
needs when I
was growing ....
up. We'd tackle
some project,
but every now '
and then, we'd
run into an ob-
stacle when it Samuel S.
came to getting Thomas
the car run-
ning again or fixing the washing
machine. I'd stand by and watch
the "project director" choose a
course of action, but he wasn't
always successful. He'd try some-
thing else to see if that might
work, but sometimes it didn't
work either. I had to watch and
then, when all else failed, suggest
"Why don't we...?" There came
a moment of optimal readiness
to listen. It didn't really do any

good to offer suggestions along
the way until that time arrived. It
wasn't that my father was short-
sighted or incompetent, or limited
in his vision or understanding of
how things went together or that
he lacked ability; it was just that
there might have been something
that he didn't see. That would be
my contribution to the project if it
was needed, but it had-to come at
the right moment.
Many of the things I've learned
and that others have learned,
have come at the moment we
were ready to hear them and not
before. There is a long jump be-
tween Jesus telling Peter "Come,
follow me and I will make you
fishers of men (Matthew 4:19)"
and the sharp rebuke to him;
"Get behind me Satan! You are
a stumbling block to me, you do
not have in mind the things of
God but the things of men (Mat-
thew 16:23)."You can imagine the
picture of Peter's discipleship be-
ing "nipped in the bud" if Jesus
began with a sharp rebuke rather
than a call.
There is a moment of readi-
ness involved here, as there is in
each of our lives. There is a time


when a potential confrontation
becomes a means of help and a
positive source for change and
not as a means of alienation or
putting up barriers and shutting
others out. In my experience, the
door begins to open when there
is an acknowledgement that "the
old way isn't working." When
that moment comes and it is usu-
ally best recognized by the active
parties involved rather than the
observers, the way is opened to
offer something as a true helper.
Husbands don't always like to be
told things by wives, wives don't
always like to be told things by
husbands, bosses don't always
like to be told things by their em-
ployees, employees observations
aren't always appreciated by their
bosses, children resent "do-as-
you're-told" edicts from parents,
parents get short-tempered when
they remember, "When I was
your age..." and so it goes. The
answer is, of course, waiting for
the right moment...if we have the
luxury to do so. Apparently, Peter
was a better disciple than fisher-
man, but Jesus knew he had to
grow into it. When I am anxious
to learn, I am more ready to listen


than when I think I know all that
there is to know. An indication
that I don't know is when things
aren't working out quite as well as
I'd like. That's a sign to get ready
to listen.
There have been times when
I've ended my input to a meeting
because someone said "Listen,
I know all about it" and when
I didn't really believe that they
knew at all. It was simple; there
was no moment of readiness;
that would have to come at a later
time. In the meantime, I might
have something to learn, too,
about why a person was so com-
mitted to their way or what else
might have been involved that I
had not seen. People and things
do change; look at our history,
our current events; our own rela-
tionships. They change it seems,
in God's time and not always our
time. We contribute when we
seek the right time and keep a
deep respect for those we wish to
help. It's not easy to be a part of
the solution and not the problem,
but it can happen every now and
then and be a very heavenly mo-
ment.
