Student has double graduation


Continues studies at
Morehouse College

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE David Wal-
lace graduated from college on
May 18. He graduated from high
school 10 days later.
Mr. Wallace, joining other
Glades Central students who also
accomplished the strange feat,
had enrolled in a dual course


program at the high school and
at Palm Beach Community Col-
lege.
Mr. Wallace gladly accepted
an Associate of Arts degree from
Palm Beach Community College
before he ever had a chance to
look at his high school diploma.
He had been working at this
since his sophomore year of
high school.
Mr. Wallace has moved on to
Morehouse College in Atlanta, as
of Aug. 13. He will be majoring


in Biology and his ultimate goal
is to become a pediatrician treat-
ing children in third-world coun-
tries.
Mr. Wallace said he would
like to explore South America
to learn about its heritage and
culture. That way, he would be
as effective as possible in bring-
ing hope to the children of South
America.
"I know I have a passion to
work with kids," he said. "Giving
them my undivided attention,

as well as medical care, will ul-
timately benefit them in the fu-
ture and by doing that, I could
say that I have accomplished my
goal in life."
But, at this point in his life,
Mr. Wallace credits his family
- namely his mother, Samantha
Wallace and grandmother, Mil-
dred Torrence for his success.
In March 2006, Ms. Torrence
suffered a severe stroke and was
told that she had a month to live,
according to David's mother.


Ms. Torrence was told by doc-
tors, after being diagnosed, that
she would remain in a coma-
tose state, which means that her
brain would have very little activ-
ity -- no movement.
But in August of that year, Ms.
Torrence began speaking.
Mr. Wallace recalls what his
grandmother told him on that
fateful day.
"My grandmother told me to
make her proud when she was

Nationally ranked
football team faces
'tough' schedule

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Let the games
begin.
For a team that won three
of the last four Class 2B state
championships and wonthe
national seven-on-seven tour-
nament this summer, the Pa-
hokee Blue Devils are primed
to make a profound statement
to every team they will face this
season.
After all, the Blue Devils are
currently ranked No. 7 in the
Southeast region and No. 18 in
the nation, thanks in large part


to their showing in recent tour-
naments.
Some say the Blue Devils
are among the most talented
and hardest working teams
in the state, but what really
makes them the way they are
is the fact that all of the play-
ers genuinely enjoy playing the
game of football.
And that's the way Blaze
Thompson, the head coach,
wants it.
To watch the Blue Devils
practice for a game is an enjoy-
able experience. It often seems
as if the players are almost al-
ways in good spirits.
"The players have to have
fun during practices or they
won't be out here," the head

E-Duck Stamp available Sept. 1


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
will be making it easier for hunt-
ers, bird watchers, stamp collec-
tors and others who want to con-
serve the nation's wetlands to buy
,Federal Migratory Bird Hunting
and Conservation Stamps, com-
monly known as Duck Stamps.
Beginning Sept. 1, the FWC,
in partnership with the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service (USFWS),
will launch a new E-Duck Stamp
program to enable the agency to
sell stamps electronically through


its automated licensing system.
Customers will receive a Duck
Stamp privilege printed on their
license that will be valid nation-
wide for 45 days. They will then
receive, through the mail, a pa-
per stamp by Amplex Corporate,
a company on contract with the
USFWS to fulfill the paper stamp
requirement. After the 45 days,
the E-Duck Stamp will expire and
purchasers must possess the pa-
per stamp to receive its full ben-
efit.
The E-Duck Stamp will fulfill


the license requirement for water-
fowl hunters and also allow free
entry into any national wildlife
refuge in the United States. The
Federal Duck Stamp is available at
most major sporting goods stores
selling hunting and fishing licens-
es, select post offices and online
through the U.S. Postal Service
and Amplex Corporate.
The Duck Stamp also will
be available at license agents,
tax collectors, by telephone, or
through www.wildlifelicense.
com/fl. Hunters 16 years or old-


er are required to buy a Federal
Duck Stamp to hunt waterfowl.
The cost of the Duck Stamp will
be $17.50.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee

U.S. Army Corps unveils new lake schedule


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
Lake Okeechobee may soon
be maintained at a lower level
with reduced discharges of fresh-
water to the St. Lucie Canal and
the Caloosahatchee River.
Some environmentalists have
claimed that freshwater discharg-
es from Lake Okeechobee have
upset the balance of salinity in the
estuaries.
At a public meeting held Tues-
day, Aug. 14, at the Okeechobee
Civic Center, the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers (COE) unveiled a
proposed new program of lake
regulation.
Kim Taplan, south Florida pro-
gram manger for restoration for
COE, presented the tentatively
selected plan (TSP). Computer
simulation models, using actual
conditions over the past 36 years,
were used to demonstrate the
outcome of various proposed
schedules.
"Public safety is our main con-
cern," she said.
Ms. Taplan said the proposed
plan was designed to balance
all lake management objectives
including ecology, the estuaries,
navigation, the Everglades and
flood control.
The TSP represents a compro-
mise to balance all these compet-
ing objectives. It is based on sea-
sonally varying lake levels divided
into three bands -- high lake man-
agement band, 16 to 17.25 feet;
operational band, 9.7 feet to 17.25
feet; and water shortage manage-
ment band, 9.7 to 12.2 feet.
There is an overlap of the lake
levels because each band width
varies with the seasons. The high
lake level is designed for maxi-
mum releases. The operational
band provides for a lake stage
to balance all authorized project


purposes. The water shortage
band calls for water rationing.
The lake regulation schedule
now in effect is the water supply
environment (WSE). Since the
WSE was instituted in 2000, wa-
ter managers have found it to be
inflexible to address extreme wet
weather conditions. The WSE
caused delay in releasing water
from the lake causing high lake
levels and requiring larger volume
discharges to the St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee estuaries. Re-
cent high lake levels have caused
concern about the stability of the
Herbert Hoover Dike. There has
also been public concern over the
health of the lake and estuaries.
In 2005 plans were set in mo-
tion to develop a new regulation
schedule.
In July of this year, the TSP was
unveiled for public view.
The TSP maintains the lake at
safer water levels, than WSE and
allows for quicker response and
operational flexibility to lake con-
ditions and tributary inflows.
While higher lake levels tend
to benefit water supply, they may
increase risk to public health and
safety and the ecology of the lake.
Lower lake levels may improve
lake ecology and reduce flood
damage but may reduce water
supplies and harm downstream
estuaries.
"This plan actually lowers the
lake level overall," Ms. Taplan
said. "We are working to rehabili-
tate the dike so that we can oper-
ate at higher levels in the future."
As soon the Herbert Hoover
Dike is repaired, she said the
team is going back to look at new
schedule.
"This is really designed to be
an interim schedule," she said.
"We have been able to reduce
those damaging high volume re-


leases to the Caloosahatchee. We
looked at more low flows to the
estuaries to reduce salinity."
Ms. Taplan added that being
able to release more water to the
south and an increased number
of stormwater treatment areas are
part of the long range plan.
"This plan gives us a lot more
flexibility," she said. "This allows
us to incorporate a lot more infor-
mation into making decisions."
The plan includes releasing
water at low volumes more often
to the estuaries and there is some
operational flexibility that may
reduce the impact of discharges.
Water managers will use a deci-
sion tree similar to the one used
with the current lake regulation
schedule.
Changes will be made weekly,
or more often if necessary.
"We feel like we have done
the best we could at optimizing
the plan and balancing all the
purposes of the lake" she said in
conclusion.
"We appreciate that you are
trying to share adversity," stated
Charles Shinn of the Florida Farm
Bureau Federation. "I feel that it is
imperative agriculture is involved
somehow in the decision making
process."
He noted that some agricultur-
al interests are in dire straits.
David Brent, a private citizen
stated that he felt a lot of the prob-
lems are upstream of the lake. He
advocated more work in the Kis-
simmee basin to lessen environ-
mental impacts on the lake.
"We think you guys have done
about as good a job as you could
do," was the opinion of Dr. Paul
Gray, staff scientist with Audubon
of Florida. "We think that this is a
reasonable schedule."
He noted that a lot of the lake's
problems can't be fixed right


Ranchlands used to store water


WEST PALM BEACH De-
spite the current water shortage,
water managers are planning for
wetter conditions by expanding
partnerships that will allow wa-
ter storage on private land north
of Lake Okeechobee, helping to
reduce inflows to the lake and the
frequency of discharges to coast-
al estuaries. As part of the Florida
Ranchlands Environmental Ser-
vices Program, four additional pi-
lot projects were approved earlier
S this month by the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) Governing Board. These
agreements double the number
of landowners ready to take on
and store excess water on private
land when lake levels are unusu-
ally high.
"Storing water is so vital to
lake and estuary improvements,
but building large-scale reservoirs
takes time," said SFWMD Govern-
ing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "I applaud the willingness
of private landowners to partici-


pate in environmental restoration
by providing immediate relief to
our water storage needs."
SFour ranches added to the pro-
gram are: Lightsey Cattle Com-
pany; Rafter T Ranch; C.M. Payne
& Son, Inc.; and Syfrett Ranch
West. All are within the Lake
Okeechobee, Caloosahatchee
and St. Lucie estuary watersheds.
Together the lands will provide
some 2,200 acre-feet of additional
water storage capability.
Launched in October 2005, the
Florida Ranchlands Environmen-
tal Services Project is developing
a program in which ranchers in
the Northern Everglades provide
environmental services of water
retention, phosphorus load re-
duction and wetland habitat ex-
pansion to agencies of the state
and other willing buyers. These
ranches can bring services on line
quickly as compared to other op-
tions and will complement public'
investment in regional water stor-
age and water treatment facilities,


such as reservoirs and treatment
wetlands.
The Florida Ranchlands En-
vironmental Services Project is
being implemented through col-
laboration between the World
Wildlife Fund, eight participat-
ing ranchers, USDA's Natural
Resources Conservation Service
and several state agencies: Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, South Florida
Water Management District and
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection. Technical sup-
port is being provided by scientists
from the MacArthur Agro-Ecology
Research Center and the Univer-
sity of Florida.
Total funding from federal,
state and private sources for the
Florida Ranchlands Environmen-
tal Services Project exceeds $5
million for phase one, which en-
compasses pilot project imple-
mentation and program design.


Red Cross helps residents prepare


WEST PALM BEACH The
Glades Area Branch of the Ameri-
can Red Cross Greater Palm
SBeach Area Chapter joined Hen-
Sdry County Emergency Manage-
ment and the Fire Departments in
LaBelle, Clewiston and Western
Palm Beach County to hand out
preparedness information bags at
Nisbet Enterprise, Inc. owned Mc-
Donald's locations. Information
bags were stuffed with brochures
including a checklist of supplies
that should be included in a disas-
ter supply kit, how to purify water
in the event of water contamina-
tion and tips on preparing a family
disaster plan.
Nearly 600 bags we handed
out over the course of three days


at three different McDonald's lo-
cations in Belle Glade, Clewiston
and LaBelle. Debbie McDuffie,
Glades Area Branch Manager said
"Partnering with Nisbet Enterpris-
es has allowed us the opportunity
to provide the community of Belle
Glade, Clewiston and LaBelle with
timely hurricane preparedness in-
formation."
In addition to allowing the Red
Cross to hand-out information
to customers, Nisbet Enterprises
also donated 5% of net proceeds
for the day to the Red Cross, a to-
tal of $1,223. The money raised
will go to help the Glades Area in
the event of a hurricane or other
disaster.
Steve Nisbet, Sr., Owner of Nis-


bet Enterprises said "It is always
wonderful to give back to the
community, the information the
Red Cross provides is critical and
we are glad to be able to help."
The Red Cross recommends
three actions that everyone should
take to be prepared for disasters:
Get a Kit Including water
(one gallon per person per day),
food, flashlights, first aid kits,
medications, radio, tools, cloth-
ing, personal items, sanitary sup-
plies, money, contact information
and pet supplies.
Make a Plan Discuss a disas-
ter plan with your family, choose
two places to meet, know how to
turn off your utilities and practice
your plan.

now. Dr. Gray said that instead of
being too high, as it was in the re-
cent past, the lake is going to be
too low too often. However, he
said that the flow to the Caloosa-
hatchee River would be better.
If the dike is repaired, he said
the lake level could go up which
would give increased flexibility to
water mangers. He said comple-
tion of Everglades Agriculture
Area reservoirs would help the


situation by giving more storage
areas to the south. He added that
the Kissimmee River restoration
project would held in maintaining
lake levels.
After a series of public hear-
ings, the TSP should be in place
by January of 2008.

On preparing pets



for hurricanes


PALM BEACH COUNTY -- The
Palm Beach County Animal Care
and Control Division encourages
all pet owners to prepare dogs
and cats for upcoming hurricanes.
Palm Beach County residents and
their pets living in evacuation
zones or in mobile homes can
pre-register to stay together at the
Pet Friendly Shelter.
It is important that pet owners
pack a bag for their dogs and cats
to take with them if they leave
the area or go to the Pet Friendly


Shelter. All pets at the Pet Friendly
Shelter should have a spacious
carrier or kennel, food and wa-
ter for five days, medicines, toys
and blankets. The owner should
assure that their dog or cat has
been currently vaccinated against
rabies and other diseases and is
wearing a rabies tag.
For more information about
the Pet Friendly Shelter and pre-
paring pets for a hurricane, visit

mal or call (561) 233-1266.


Guest Commentary


Mental health programs, no room for cuts


By Maggie Labarta, Ph.D.
The news is bad, but not un-
expected. The $71 billion budget
state passed in May no longer
appears realistic and Florida law-
makers are now faced with the
daunting task of cutting around
$1 billion from the expense side
of the budget to match the feared
and now almost certain rev-
enue shortfall.
A special session will be-
gin Sept. 18 and could run up
through Oct. 5 and according to
Senate President Ken Pruitt, their
task will be "difficult, but achiev-
able." Since most of the budget is
allocated to education and social
services, programs in those areas
have been told to expect potential
cuts between 4 and 10 percent.
But which programs to cut? No
one wants to decrease the num-
ber of police officers, firefighters
or teachers who are so essential
to our safety and well-being. But
how does an area such as mental
health services fit into the picture?
'Should a budget item that some
might argue does not affect as
many people really be considered
as vital as one for those entrusted
with our lives and our future?
You may find the answer to
that question rather surprising.
Mental illnesses directly affect
far more people than most would
suspect. In fact, the majority of
Floridians will, at some point in
their lifetimes meet the diagnostic
criteria for one or more mental


disorders. About one-quarter (26
percent) of the general popula-
tion reported symptoms sufficient
for diagnosing such a disorder
during the past year.
Mental illnesses also have
a tremendous impact on us at
school and work. More than half
of our youth with an emotional
disturbance drop out of school
and approximately 20 percent of
youth with an emotional distur-
bance are arrested before they
can even finish their education.
And the problems may even be
worse at the workplace as clini-
cal depression has become one
of America's most costly illnesses
in terms of loss of business pro-
ductivity. Left untreated, depres-
sion is as costly as heart disease
or AIDS to the U.S. economy,
costing more than $43.7 billion
in employee, absenteeism alone.
Mental illnesses are the second
leading cause of premature death
and disability.
Over time, untreated mental
illnesses have taken their toll on
our communities as well, as years
of under-funding community
programs has contributed to in-
creased homelessness and higher
crime rates. As a result, far too
many individuals with mental ill-
nesses remain in jails across our
state because there are no avail-
able beds in our limited hospi-
tal facilities. And too many who
serve their time and are released
from those prisons are doomed


to return because there are insuf-
ficient funds for follow-up treat-
ments.
With budgets tight across the
country, how does Florida com-
pare with other states for funding
mental health programs? Again,
the news is not good. Florida ranks
48th in the nation in per-capita
mental health spending 37th in
Medicaid per-capita spending for
enrolled disabled beneficiaries
and 47th in Medicaid per-capita
spending for enrolled children.
At the same time, Florida
ranks second in the number of
homeless, first in the number
of substantiated reports of child
abuse and neglect, second in the
number of children in juvenile
detention facilities and third in
the number of prison inmates. A
significant portion of these prob-
lems can be traced directly to the
lack of mental health care.
If this is what happens when
community mental health pro-
grams are left to languish without
even moderate budget increases,
what in the world can we expect
if budgets are actually cut? How
much more can we neglect some
of our state's most vulnerable citi-
zens? We certainly can't afford to
find out.
Mental health services should
be treated as essential not only
because like fire and police ser-
vices they save lives, but also
because of the impact not fund-
ing them adequately will have for


years to come. A failure to invest
in the mental health system leads
directly to increased costs for
hospital inpatient services, emer-
gency-room care, shelters, foster
care, juvenile detention facilities,
jails and prisons. That is poor in-
,vestment by any standard.
We fully understand that the
harsh reality of our fiscal situa-
tion will call for tough decisions,
and good programs will have to
be cut. But how much lower are
we willing to sink in our funding
of mental health services? We are
already at the bottom! Cutting
back on funding for the essential
services that community mental
health programs provide would
be disastrous for the individuals
who so desperately need help
and the communities in which
they live not to mention that
cutting these programs today will
cost us exponentially more in the
future.
Yes, cutting the state budget
will be tough, but justifying the
decision to cut essential commu-
nity mental health services will be
even tougher.

for Community Mental Health and

Florida Citrus Mutual optimistic for 2008


LAKELAND Florida Citrus
Mutual said Thursday, Aug. 16, it
is optimistic the 2007-2008 citrus
season will be a good one for the
state's growers.
The announcement comes on
the heels of an early private esti-
mate issued this week that pegged
Florida's orange crop at 198 mil-
lion boxes 98.6 million boxes
of Early/Mids, 3.3 million boxes
Navels and 96.1 million boxes of
Valencias. If realized, that would
be a 55 percent increase over last
year's orange crop.
"We need to rebuild orange
juice inventories which are at ex-
tremely low levels," said Michael
W. Sparks, executive vice presi-
dent/CEO of Florida Citrus Mu-
tual. "So a larger crop is manage-


able, however, we'll be surprised
if it hits 198 million boxes."
Mr. Sparks said an upcom-
ing citrus tree census could sig-
nificantly alter perceptions of the
orange production landscape. He
also noted that most growers are
reporting very high fruit counts
per tree and there has been a lot
of concern about size.
The United States Department
of Agriculture (USDA) is sched-
uled to issue a 2007 Tree Census
Update based on seven citrus
producing counties on Sept. 14,
at 1:30 pm. The census will cover
DeSoto, Polk, Collier, Hendry, Lee,
Indian River and Martin counties.
Sparks said even with a' larger
crop he still expects growers to get
high returns, however they may


not reach the levels of '06-'07.
"Last year we had historic
highs and I don't think we'll see
two seasons in a row with those
numbers," he said. "But returns
will still be good and will help
growers offset the increased pro-
duction costs associated with fuel
prices, scouting and pest and dis-
ease control."
The USDA's initial citrus crop
estimate is scheduled for Oct. 12.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948 and based in Lakeland,
is the state's largest citrus grow-
ers organization with more than
8,000 grower members. The Flor-
ida citrus industry employs 90,000
people and has a $9 billion eco-
nomic impact. Please visit www.

Sheriff and churches help victims of violent crime


The Hendry County Sheriff's
Office, Our Lady Queen of Heaven
Catholic Church, El Faro Assembly
of God and the State Attorney's
office sponsored a public meeting
for victims of violent crimes on
Aug. 11. This meeting was hosted
for the Migrant Community and
the families living within Hendry
County to encourage reporting to
law enforcement all crimes they
have been made a victim of and
explain to them their legal rights.
Investigator Fernando Herrera
of the Sheriff's Office introduced
himself and began the meeting by
asking Fr. Jioboni Batista of Our
Lady Queen of Heaven Catholic
Church to open with a prayer.
Sally Kreuscher of the Child
Protective Investigations Depart-
ment of the Department of Chil-
dren and Families spoke on child


abuse. With Sally was Maureen
Herrera of the 20th Judicial Cir-
cuit Court who interpreted Sally's
words into Spanish. She stated
there were five investigators in her
department which covers Hendry
and Glades counties.
Ms. Kreuscher gave a few do's
and don't so that you can make a
difference to a child who tells you
about his/her abuse.

Do
*Listen to the child and be-
lieve them
Be someone special for that
child and be there for them
Offer support to the parents
Encourage the usage of law
enforcement resources (Sheriff's
Office or Department of Children
and Families) to the parents. If
they are afraid to call any law en-


forcement resource, encourage
the usage of their local physician
or pastor.

Don't
Make promises that you
can't keep -
Promise secrecy
Push child to give details of
abuse.
At the meeting, they discussed
general indicators of child abuse
and neglect that you may observe
in children or young people. The
presence of one or more of these
factors does not by itself prove
that abuse is happening. How-
ever, it can alert you to the pos-
sibility of abuse.
An abused child or young per-
son might be one who:
tells you that he or she is be-
ing abused' or hurt;


has sudden or unexplained
changes in mood or behavior;
has frequent or unexplained
bruises or injuries;
has low self-esteem:
has poor hygiene;
becomes withdrawn or un-
responsive;
has many exaggerated fears:
seems to lack trust in famil-
iar adults:
has serious difficulties relat-
ing to peers and/or adults:
is always angry or aggres-
sive:
has difficulty sleeping and
experiences nightmares; or
talks about suicide.
Yolanda Santiago, a 10-year
veteran of the Victim Advocate
Office, explained her office's
functions. She spoke about the
first case she vas given to work


Jacob Summerlin King of the Crackers


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
Dressed in range clothes with a
large bandana and a turned-back
Stetson, he clutched a bullwhip
in one hand and had a corncob
pipe in his mouth, the epitome of
a cracker cattleman.
Jacob Summerlin was in many
ways the essence of the "True
American," one who survived the
American frontier.
The authors Joe A. Ackerman,
Jr. and J. Mack Ackerman ex-
pound on his strong philanthrop-
ic spirit, his sturdy moral tenacity
and incredible modesty. They also
wrote that he had a keen wit, a
True sense of reality, never took
himself too seriously and never
"put on airs."
He dearly loved to be called
King of the Crackers and loved all
that it implied, that is, one who
was cose to -the earth and care-
less of comfort.
The King of Crackers was a
highly successful merchant, hos-
teller and exporter, a veteran of
three wars and an effective peace-
maker.
One of the King's earliest an-
cestors was a Scottish merchant
named John Somervaille a name


that's had numerous spellings
down through the years including
Summerell, Somerell, Somerwell,
Summerland, Summerale and Su-
merlan. In 1845 this name was le-
gally changed to Summerlin the
name that's been in use for over
150 years and which, naturally, is
used in this biography.
Back in those days, boots and
shoes were often homemade from
home-tanned cowhides, which
were either cured by stretching
or by using lime and tannic acid.
The lime was used to remove the
hair from the skins and the hides
were prepared or tanned in tannic
acid.
Although the region around
Knights' Station was not cotton
country, Jake and most other set-
tlers had small cotton patches.
The harvested cotton was con-
verted into a tough cloth known as
osnaburg. (A fabric that is called
"osnaburg" can still be had today
and is used for table cloths, place
mats, napkins, draperies and cur-
tains. Reminiscent of olden days
it's often referred to as rustic or
antique cotton.)
Finer woven material known
as muslin could be smoothed
out and was sometimes used for
underwear. One of Jake's sons,


Samuel Summerlin, would later
recall seeing his mother, Frances,
carding cotton a tiresome but
necessary part of the process. He
also remembered seeing his sis-
ter, Martha, spin it.
There are almost countless
stories in this 150-some page
book that. not only entertain but
enlighten the reader about Florida
in days long gone. One of those
occurred when Jake and his son,
Sam, were hunting near old Fort
Cummings.
One evening after they had
turned in to sleep, they were
awakened by the frightful screams
of two panthers that were fighting
and that too close for comfort to
their camp. Jake grabbed a light-
wood knot from their campfire
and threw it in the direction of the
big cats. They both scampered
off into the blackness of a nearby
swamp and were not heard from
again.
This highly illustrated history
includes a detailed map of Florida
(of that era) plus a Summerlin
family tree and extensive explana-
tory footnotes that clarify and
define many of the stories from
one generation to another. An
Epilogue as well as an extensive
Index is also included.

'Cowboys of Florida' a unique film


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
The life of the Florida Cowboy
is changing, disappearing even as
the new
DVD "Cowboys of Florida"
was being filmed, even as this is
being written.
For disbelievers, yes, there are
cowboys in Florida, albeit not
quite like it "usta" be. There are
still real live rootin' tootin' ropin'
and ridin' cowboys who've been
on the scene in Florida for over
250 years. The fact is Florida vies
with Texas as the number one
cattle producing state in the USA.
This highly colorful DVD film
begah as an "ode" to the cow-
boy's way of life. However, it has


emerged as a film encompassing
more than anyone could have
imagined, even the producers
themselves.
"Cowboys of Florida" was
developed over a period of three
years during which time the film-
makers realized that the lives of
the Florida Cowboys were chang-
ing right before their eyes and
cameras.
The combination of unprec-
edented widespread- hurricane
destruction, along with the dra-
matic explosion of land values all
over the state precludes an end
to heretofore enormous-scale
ranching in Florida.
One example that's now gone
with the wind is the Babcock
Ranch.
And there are others already


on the drawing board for devel-
opment.
This important DVD docu-
mentary captures the pristine
beauty and the majesty of old
ranches. Some of these have not
changed for hundreds of years,
and some few still exist in Glades,
Okeechobee, Hendry, Highlands,
DeSoto and Hardee plus others in
counties over the state. A magnifi-
cent and highly notable example
of an on-going ranch today is
Adams Ranch Inc., located in St.
Lucie County. Adams Ranch also
has ranching interests in Lake
Marion and Okeechobee. Signifi-
cant parts of this documentary
were filmed in these locations.
With this film, you may own, a
"last look" at a way of life that will
soon be forever gone. Victor Milt,


director and creator, is the recipi-
ent of numerous national awards
in his field including: The Florida
Choice Award of the Independent
Film Festival, Palm Beach Inter-
national Film Festival Finalist, Ole
Muddy Film Festival Silver Award,
and the Blue Cross Film Festival's
Directors Choice.
"Cowboys of Florida" is a non-
fiction historical work produced
by Cowboys of Florida LLC with
Executive Producers Kim Bretton
Milt and Dr. Barbara Carlton. Pro-
ducers include George Pratt and
Mac Martin.

Miniature donkeys make good pets


INI/MaryAnn Morris
Miniature donkeys are by nature very docile and gentle, mak-
ing good pets for small children and the elderly.
1C.e0...:


By Maryann Morris
INI Florida
Who would have thought that
a peaceable, pint-sized equine
with big fuzzy ears would be
guard against livestock predators?
Donkeys have a built-in hatred of
dogs and anything dog-like.
Dusty Tails Ranch, in
Okeechobee County is home to
Tracey Gibson and 14 registered
miniature donkeys.
"It was kind of bizarre. I got
my first pair, a gelding and jennet
(female) as a gift in 1995 and just
fell in love with them. I wanted to
breed the little girl, so that started
my search for a jack (male). I fi-
nally had to go out of state to Tex-
as where I had a friend who had
been breeding them for about 20
years," she said.
"Her donkeys had great blood-
lines, so I went there and here I
am with 14. These little donkeys
are so sociable, docile and affec-
tionate -- I'm hooked!
"I wanted good bloodlines if I
was going to breed."
Miniature donkeys originated
in the Mediterranean area of
Northern Africa in ancient times
and more recently from they Is-
lands of Sicily and Sardinia off the
west coast of Italy. Over time the
distinctions between the two is-
land populations blurred and they
are now considered one breed
properly called Miniature Mediter-
ranean Donkeys.


Backyard

Barnyard
The National Miniature Don-
key Association's breed standard
cites these donkeys are 200 to 350
pounds at maturity and 32 to 34
inches tall at the withers. This is
for registered donkeys. Pets can
vary a bit from this. These little
guys are hardy and healthy, but
do need basic shots and worm-
ing, just like other equines. Many
miniature donkeys are completely
trustworthy around small children
and the elderly. Small children can
ride them and they can be trained
to pull a cart or carry a pack, as
they have for centuries.
The Web site of the National
Miniature Donkey Association,
with great information is www.
nmdaasset.com and there you
will find such things as donkey
rescue organizations worldwide.
The donkeys are easy keepers.
Ms. Gibson said she only feeds
grain to a few of hers right now,
maybe a quarter of a scoop a day.
"I'm hoping more people learn
about them, Says Ms. Gibson.
"They are relatively rare in Florida.
and to show them you have to
travel to Georgia or Texas."

Revisions to the district school board's policy on student retention and promotion for 2007 2008
Intensive Reading
For each year in which a student scores at Level 1 on the FCAT Reading,.the student must be enrolled in and complete
an intensive reading course the following year Placement of Level 2 readers in either an intensive reading course or a
content area course in which reading strategies are delivered shall be determined by diagnosis of reading needs.
Physical Education Requirement
Students participating In interscholastic sports at the junior varsity or varsity level for 2 years who pass the Florida
Department of Education developed test in personal fitness are exempt from the one-credit PE requirement Students
completing one semester of marching band, physical activity class with marching band activities, or dance shall satisfy
the personal fitness requirement or adaptive PE under an IEP or 504 plan.
Major Area of Interest
Beginning with students entering high school in the 2007-2008 school year, graduation requirements Include enrollment
in a major area of interest, comprised of four (4) credits (Section 1003.428, Florida Statutes).
Performance Based Credit
Grading procedure: All students taking a Performance Based Credit (PBC) class will be issued progress updates, final
grades, and credit as follows:
*Interim reports will reflect progress update, indicating the number of modules completed, and the number of modules
available in the specific course assigned.
*Final grades will be submitted to the guidance counselor, using the PBC completion form, upon the successful comple-
tion of all modules with mastery assessment grades of at least 70% or higher.
Special Diploma Option 2
The intent of Special Diploma Option 2 is to provide graduation incentives to those ESE students who have not been
successful in a traditional school/academic setting and /or are considered "at risk" of dropping out of school. Historically,
this population of ESE students has not been successful in earning high school credits for either a Standard Diploma or
a Special Diploma Option 1. Opion 2 is designed for ESE students who would benefit from an individually designed,
community-based job preparatory program. Option 2 is also designed to increase the value of school attendance with
age appropriate students. The intent of Option 2 is to prepare the ESE student for the transition from school to work and
independent living thatwill continue after graduation. To be considered for Option 2 an ESE studentwould typically have
attended a minimum of four semesters in a high school level program.
An ESE student may choose Option 2 at any time after the completion their ninth grade year. Graduation will only be
possible for students from ages 16-22. The transition IEP team members must verify that the student has met all the
community and employment competencies documented on the Individual Graduation Plan prior to awarding a Special
Diploma under Option 2. The student/parent/guardian must provide transportation to and from the job site. The District
shall not provide transportation to and from the job site for a Special Diploma Option 2 student
The Florida Student Performance Standards that have been developed for various exceptionalities and established by
the Glades County School Distict are replaced in Option 2 by community and employment competencies.
1. Both sets of competencies are developed and documented during the transition IEP. The ESE student must
demonstrate mastery of the following*
*Student performance standards for the ESE vocational course in which the student is enrolled
'Community and employment competencies developed and documented during the transition IEP
2. Community and employment competencies specified In the Individual Graduation Plan
The Individual Graduation Plan will be developed and signed by the student, parent/guardian, ESE teacher, and employ-
er prior to placement in employment and implementation of Option 2. The plan will identify the following:
*Expected community and employment competencies;
Cnteria for determining and certifying mastery of the competencies;
.Work schedule and minimum number of hours to be worked per week;
.Description of the supervision to be provided by School District staff.
3, The student must be employed in a community-based job where the employer
'Has a Federal Employer Identification number
*Provides the student opportunities to interact with non-disabled co-workers
*Adheres to the requirements of the Fair Labor Standards Act and Child Labor Laws
*Offers opportunities for advancement
The number of hours of work per week must be specified on the Individual Graduation Plan. The minimum length of time
for employment pnor to receiving a Special Diploma under Option 2 shall be one full semester.
A graduation exit meeting will occur when the student has demonstrated mastery of the community and employment
competencies that were documented on the Individual Graduation Plan. Mastery of the community and employment
competencies outlined on the Individual Graduation Plan and any other related information must be verified before an
Option 2 diploma can be awarded.

Clewiston Tigers hope to have a statement season


By Naji Tobias
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Clewiston Ti-
gers head coach Larry Antonacci
knew that the majority of the play-
ers from last season's Class 2A
state runner up team have gradu-
ated and moved on to college. He
has now implemented a unique


approach for this season: teach-
ing his players to be mentally in-
corporated in games.
"The mentality of the game is
important," said Coach Antonac-
ci. "The players must learn the
fundamentals of the games and
must know their assignments, as
well as the what-ifs and whys of
the game of football."


INI/Naji Tobias
On Thursday, Aug. 9, after Clewiston Tigers' players finished
the seven-minute run, their head coach Larry Antonacci had
them walk across the field non-stop for several more minutes
to cool down. Here is Clewiston Tigers lineman Alex Rubio
cooling down after the run.


In the words of Clewiston Tigers head coach Larry Antonacci
during the players' seven minute run: "Don't stop!"


The head coach realizes that
many of his players are physically
gifted; including the likes of junior
running back Darris Hughes and
senior tight end/defensive end
Delvin Hughes. But the coach
added, the physical aspect of the
game is easier to grasp than the
mental part of it because the play-
ers need to know what to do and
how to do it.
"Too many people tell the kids
what to do without explaining to
them why," said the head coach.
Coach Antonacci wants his
players to show confidence on the
football field during practices and
games. If Coach Antonacci sees if
the player is displaying confidence
and understanding what the play
or formation is, he knows.
"Too many kids play with their
bodies and not their minds," said
Coach Antonacci. "Put them to-
gether, then you'll have some-
thing."
According to him, accountabil-
ity comes into play through this
joining.
"It teaches players not to make
excuses for their mistakes," said
Coach Antonacci. "You must get
beyond your mind and get to the
reality of the situation. If they're
able to get their minds right, then
that's half the battle right there." -
The coach is adamant that this
way of' thinking will reduce mis-
takes during practices and espe-
cially in games.
"A lot of mistakes are made be-
cause the kids don't know what
to do or what they're assignments
are and that's critical," said Coach
Antonacci. "I want my coaches
to break down anything that they
teach, all the way down to the
basics. I want the players to learn
from the ground up."
When it comes to winning
games this season, Coach An-
tonacci wants the players to un-
derstand that if they take pride in
what they have, they will want to
be the best at what they do.

how values such as integrity,
courage and responsibility are
interconnected with America's
founding documents and Ameri-
can heroes," said Victoria Hughes,
President of the Bill of Rights In-
stitute. "As the classroom engages
in discussion about our country's
civic values, we trust that young
Americans will gain an apprecia-
tion for putting those values into
practice."
In their essays, participating

following question: "What civic
values) do you believe are most
essential to being an American


those values into practice?" Win-

Students urged to use caution on walks


SArea children returned to
school this week.
The American Red Cross
vants those students arrive and
return safely. While many parents
'drive their children to and from
school, 25 million students ride
school buses. A few simple safety
tips can avoid injury when riding
on or getting on or off the bus.
Line up facing the-school bus
door -- not along the side of the
school bus.
Don't play in the street while
waiting for the school bus.


Carry your belongings in a
backpack or book bag.
Never reach under a school
bus to get anything that has rolled
or fallen underneath.
After getting off the school
bus, move immediately onto the
sidewalk, out of traffic.
Wait for a signal from the bus
driver before you cross the street.
Walk'at least 10 steps away from
the front of the bus so that the
bus driver can see you.
Never cross the street behind
the school bus.

Other students who live near
their schools may walk or ride
bicycles to school. While pedes-
trians can avoid injury by using
sidewalks, crossing only when it
is clear at intersections, or when
permitted by a traffic signal, bicy-
clists need to take extra caution
when sharing the roadway with
motorized vehicles.
Each year, approximately
500,000 people receive non-fatal
injuries while riding a bicycle.
Ninety percent of bicyclists killed


in 2000 reportedly were not wear-
ing helmets. Always wear an ap-
proved helmet when cycling. The
head or neck is the most seriously
injured part of the body in.most
fatally injured cyclists. Children
should wear a helmet even if they
are still riding along the sidewalk
on training wheels. Some states
have helmet laws that apply to
young children, but bicycle safety
is important for every person ped-
aling on two wheels, even college
students.


Fhank you to the following businesses who made it possible or
40 families to receive school supplies for this new school year.
The amount of 55 backpacks and 25 binders were given
between Hendry and Glades Counties. Thanks to Seacoast
National Bank who even held a car wash fund raiser to help buy
supplies. 3AW Welding & Fabrication along with La Frontera
Grocery made money donations that made it possible to
purchase much needed school supplies also. And Southern
Gardens Citrus also donated school supplies to Hendry
County's needy families. A special thank you to Clewiston
residents who dropped off supplies at the clinic.

Wallace. Ms. Torrence would only
live until September.
Since then however, Mr. Wal-
lace was determined to earn his
high school diploma and associ-
ate's degree.
"Before my mother passed,"
said Mrs. Wallace, "David com-
mitted to her that he would grad-
uate from Palm Beach Commu-
nity College and I strongly felt that
it was his grandmother's dying
wish. He made that happen."
Right now, Mr. Wallace is in the
pre-planning stages with PBCC of-
ficials to map out a plan to attend
medical school, after he gradu-
ates from Morehouse College.
*A National Honor Society and
Phi Theta Kappa International

coach said.
However, the first week of
practices was anything but, ac-
cording to Coach Thompson.
Dubbed 'Hell Week,' the play-
ers were required to run up and
down the Herbert Hoover Dike
for two hours prior to the start
of practice this would happen
from 4 to 6 p.m.
For another two hours from
6 to 8 p.m. the football team
had regular practice.
"I wanted the players to get a
jumpstart in conditioning," Coach
Thompson said. "I want to make
it hard for the players to be part
of the football team. They have to
understand that this team has a
bulls-eye on their backs."
As is the goal every season, the
goal for the Blue Devils is to win
the Class 2B state championship.
But the schedule makers fig-
ure to make the Blue Devils earn
their way into being champion-
ship again.
"The schedule will keep the
team focused this season," the
head coach said. "If this year's
schedule doesn't keep the team
focused, I don't know what will."
Here's a look at the schedule
ahead all games are played on
Friday.
+ Aug. 24 at Clewiston (Kick-

players realize that it's tough to
get up early in the morning es-
pecially around 5 a.m. every day
- but he points out to them that
they must show up on time to the
practices.
"If they don't show up on time,
then they're taken care of," Coach
Urwin said.
That statement may sound
somewhat blunt, but the Raiders'
coaches say they are doing their
best to drive home the impor-
tance of players' ability to learn
accountability and responsibility.
Coach Urwin is not only en-
couraging the players to get each
other to be in top form this year,
he is actually expecting it through-
out the year.
"The teammates are holding
each other accountable for all of
the practices throughout the sea-
son," Coach Urwin said.
As a Raider football player,
anything less than your best is un-
acceptable, as many Raiders fans,
players and coaches know.
It may be tough for the Raid-
ers players right now, but the
only goal for the team is to win its
seventh state championship this
season.
Many people say that the op-
posing teams on the Raiders'
schedule circle them on their cal-
endars because everyone knows
how well-conditioned the Raiders
are for the season.
The two-a-days will say a lot
about how the Raiders will fare
this season. They should be in
top form, mentally and physically,
when their coaches are done with
them.

(Muck Bowl) 7:30 p.m.
Some of the toughest games
that the Blue Devils will be play-


Here are some key players that
the Raiders expect to make a big
impact on their season:
Senior wide receiver Travis
Benjamin, who is widely regarded
as one of the best receivers in the
state, was recently named one of
ESPN's Top 150 high school re-
cruits, as many colleges across
the country are ready to offer him
a scholarship to play college foot-
ball next year.
Junior wide receiver Rantavi-
ous Wooten is described as an ex-
plosive player who keeps up with
the'tradition of great wide receiv-
ers that come from Glades Cen-
tral, according to Coach Urwin.
Junior running back Antonio
McCloud, who made his talent
known at last year's Class 3A state
championship game, is one of the
great players who has great vision
and is very mobile, according to
Coach Urwin.
Coach Urwin describes ju-
nior offensive lineman Henry
Orelius as a 6 foot, 5 inch, 280 lb.
player who has a great attitude
and is very coachable.
Senior linebacker Russell
Lewis is described as having a
great attitude and does whatever
is asked of him.
Junior cornerback Rob-
ert Ferguson has great potential
in being a very good defensive
player for the upcoming season,
according to the defensive coor-
dinator.
Newcomer Kardell Dunning,
a senior cornerback, has a 40 yard
dash speed of 4.4 seconds and is
very quick, according to Coach
Urwin.
Coach Urwin also said that
there are a lot of hidden gems on
the Raiders team who are ready
to come into games and make a
big impact on the season as well.


ing include Palm Beach Gardens
- a Class 6A state champion team
two years ago, Chaminade-Ma-
donna a team that is widely re-
garded as having one of the pre-
mier programs in the state and, of
course, Glades Central '- a team
that won the Class 3A state cham-
pionship last year and will be
hosting this year's Muck Bowl.
"We want to approach this
season one game at a time,"
Coach Thompson said.
Staff Writer Naji Tobbas can be
reached at ntobias@newszap.com.


"If the players play their best,
every play, every down and every
minute, then everything will take
care of itself," Coach Urwin said.
Here's a look at the Raiders
upcoming schedule all games
are on Friday nights at 7:30 p.m.
-Aug. 24 at Dillard Kick-off
Classic
-Aug. 31 vs. Palm Beach
Lakes
-Sept. 7 at Palm Beach Cen-
tral
*Sept. 14 at Palm Beach Gar-
dens
-Sept. 21 vs. Clewiston Sug-
ar Bowl
-Sept. 28 at. Dwyer
-Oct. 5 vs. Cardinal Gibbons
-Oct. 12 -OPEN
-Oct. 19 vs. Archbishop Mc-
Carthy Homecoming Game
-Oct. 26 at Pembroke Pines
-Nov. 2 at Suncoast
-Nov. 9 vs. Pahokee Muck
Bowl
Even though the schedule
looks favorable for the Raiders
- and looks is the key word here
- Coach Urwin is telling the team
to take every game one step at a
time, as if they are climbing a lad-
der.
Of course, the top of the lad-
der is winning the Class 3A state
championship for the second
year in a row.
The Raiders also are intent on
winning this year's Sugar Bowl
against Clewiston and this year's
Muck Bowl against Pahokee -
they lost-both games last season.
"If you don't focus one game
at a time, you won't get to the big
picture," Coach Urwin said. "You
can't get to.the top floor unless
you climb up the ladder."

BOYNTON BEACH United
Way of Palm Beach County and its
partners are holding a free disaster
response and recovery workshop
for faith-based organizations,
such as churches, synagogues
and mosques, on Tuesday, Aug.
28, from 8 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
The purpose of the workshop
is to pre-identify the skills, as-
sets and resource capabilities of
various faith-based groups which
would be available to assist Palm
Beach County in the event of a
.hurricane, disaster, or mass emer-
gency, such as a chemical or bio-
logical release (such as Smallpox
or Anthrax). Organizations will
also learn how they can coordi-
nate their response with other
partner agencies and the county.
"Historically, faith-based or-
ganizations have uniquely con-
tributed to their communities fol-
lowing a disaster," said David'L.
Butler, MPH, emergency manage-
ment programs coordinator, Palm
Beach County Emergency Man-
agement. "This workshop will
encourage those organizations.
to develop formal and informal
networks, as-well as learn about
the resources already available in
their community."
Guest speakers at the work-
shop include representatives from
FEMA, Florida Interfaith Network-
ing in Disasters (FIND), Home-
land Compassion, American Red
Cross Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter and United Way of Palm
Beach County's Volunteer Center.
The workshop will be hosted
by United Way of Palm Beach
County, Palm Beach County



Boutique
Continued From Page 1
Priss Boutique and Salon, was in-
spired by the fact that she called
her three daughters Amy, 19,
Ashley, 21 and Alexis, 16 'pris-
sy."
With that in. mind, the two
were ready to open their business
Friday afternoon.
Rilean said that about 50 peo-
ple came out for the grand open-
ing, with refreshments served. It
was a bustling first day indeed,
as Miss Priss Boutique and Salon
gave away items: a gift basket, a
free month of tanning, a pair of
earrings and a bracelet.
Diane Walker of Pahokee
won the gift basket, while Jessica
Figueroa of South Bay won a pair
of earrings and a bracelet. Ro-
berta Walker of Belle Glade won
a set of Chanel-inspired jewelry
and Sandy Doney Worth of Belle
Glade won a free month of tan-
ning, courtesy of Miss Priss Bou-
tique and Salon.
The boutique and salon will
be offering the service beginning
next week, according to Amy.
On Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m., Miss Priss Boutique and Sa-
lon will be having another open
house.
"We're doing this because
many residents have not been in
the area for the summer and we
are hoping that they will have
returned to town by then," said
Rilean.
Items such as a variety of
home d6cor, fashion jewelry in-
spired by Chanel, Gucci, Christian
Dior and Tiffany, purses, belts, flip
flops and a variety of gift baskets,
among others are available.
Also, Miss Priss has its own
coffee blend on sale, which could
be made in a gift basket as well.
"If anyone wants a gift basket,
we'll personalize it for you," said
Rilean.
What Rilean and Amy would
like to do in the near future is
make available to the general
public t-shirts from Glades Day
and Glades Central high schools.
There are already bracelets avail-
able that are inspired by 'the
Glades Day Gators, though ones
inspired by the Glades Central
Raiders will be coming soon, ac-
cording to Amy.
Ultimately, the Hooker family
is hoping to make a positive im-
pact on the Glades area through
their business.
"I hope that everyone comes
out to look at our store, shop here
and help Miss Priss become a big
hit in the Glades area," said Amy.
Miss Priss Boutique and Salon
is located on 145 N. Main St., Suite
103 in Belle Glade. It's open Mon-
day Friday,
10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturdays
from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Staff Writer Najl Tobbas can be
reached at ntobias@newszap.com.

, Nie. .l1 New director vows to double advocates for abused kids

Hospital Auxiliary


seeks volunteers


CLEWISTON Bored too
much time on your hands? Tired
of Soap Operas or TV Sports? Get
Involved --'volunteer as a Hendry
Regional Medical Center Auxiliary
Member!
You can get a break from the
hum-drum of your daily routine
by getting out of the house for at
least four hours a week and giving
some time to your community.
Hendry Regional Medical Center
is looking for men and women
who would like to volunteer their
services to the hospital Auxiliary.
Although most of volunteer's
time is spent in the gift shop, the
Auxiliary provides assistance in


other departments as well. They
may be seen putting patient charts
together, offering directions, de-
livering flowers or making copies.
The Auxiliary uses the proceeds
from the gift shop to make pur-
chases for the hospital. In prior
years, purchases have included
surgical blood pressure monitors,
bed-chairs for family members,
hospital and laboratory equip-
ment, lobby furniture, and more.
For more information, stop
by the hospital gift shop for an
application or call Sheila Whitt,
the HRMC Auxiliary President, at
(863) 509-0118.


He's just arrived from the
frontline of leading child abuse
investigators. He speaks two lan-
guages.
He's on a mission to double
child advocate volunteers in Lee,
Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and
Glades counties to enable 100
percent of abused children to
have their voices heard in court
and the community.
Frank Prado has smoothly
moved into the Twentieth Guard-
ian ad Litem Circuit's Director
chair leading the local 5-county
Guardian Ad Litem Program and
he's already begun program-
matic changes designed to sup-
port current Guardian ad Litem
volunteers' advocacy for abused
children.
"Every day our Guardian ad
Litem volunteers and Program
staff work to provide competent
and proactive representation for
abused children with the goal of
moving a child out of a kind of
'personal limbo' in foster care
and into a permanent family -- as
quickly as possible."
The Guardian ad Litem Pro-
gram advocates for the best inter-
est of children who are alleged to
be abused, neglected, or aban-
doned and who are involved in
court proceedings. Program rep-
resentatives, including Program
staff, certified lay volunteers and
pro bono attorneys, work as a
team becoming familiar with the
child and the child's case and
making recommendations to the
court to help ensure a safe, car-
ing, stable and permanent envi-
ronment for the child. Guardian
ad Litem volunteers work with
various community partners to
ensure that the child is receiving
the assistance and support need-
ed to succeed.
"During the past year, we've


doubled our Lee County volun-
teer child advocates," said Mr.
Prado, married and father of two,
"it's a start, but it's not enough.
We still need to once again dou-
ble our current volunteer num-
bers to serve 100% of abused
children. But, while we're getting
the word out that we need many
volunteers, I am working to build
an even stronger support staff
for volunteers and better tools to
help them be more effective."
This week, Alicia Guerra be-
came the Managing Attorney for
the Guardian ad Litem Program.
Ms. Guerra, known for her ag-
gressive representation of chil-
dren with the Guardian ad Litem
Program in Charlotte and Volusia
Counties, reflects the Statewide
Guardian ad Litem Program's
call within its own attorney ranks
to take an even more proactive
stance in representing' children --
and to begin recruiting pro bono
attorneys to join the team.
It's a BIG job! In June, 18 kids
came into care in Hendry Coun-

ty -- with 95 entering from Lee.
Without a Guardian ad Litem
volunteer to represent their best
interests, half of these children
won't have their voice heard in
court or the community.

ested in volunteering, or more in-
formation, to call toll-free, state-

Glades Area Red Cross and Nisbet Enterprises teamed up to
help prepare the communities for emergencies. Left to right
are Steve Nisbet, Jr., Debbie McDuffie, Steve Nisbet, Sr.


McDonald's and Red

Cross form partnership


WEST PALM BEACH The
Glades Area Branch of the Ameri-
can Red Cross Greater Palm
Beach Area Chapter joined Hen-
dry County Emergency Manage-
ment and the Fire Departments in
LaBelle, Clewiston and Western
Palm Beach County to hand out
preparedness information bags at
Nisbet Enterprise, Inc. owned Mc-
Donald's locations. Information
bags were stuffed with brochures
including a checklist of supplies
that should be included in a disas-
ter supply kit, how to purify water
in the event of water contamina-
tion and tips on preparing a fam-
ily disaster plan. Nearly 600 bags
we handed out over the course of
three days at three different Mc-
Donald's locations in Belle Glade,
Clewiston and LaBelle.
Debbie McDuffie, Glades Area
Branch Manager, said "Partner-
ing with Nisbet Enterprises has
allowed us the opportunity to
provide the community of Belle
Glade, Clewiston and LaBelle
with timely hurricane prepared-
ness information."
In addition to allowing the
Red Cross to hand-out informa-
tion to customers, Nisbet Enter-
prises also donated 5 percent of
net proceeds for the day to the
Red Cross, a total of $1,223. The


money raised will go to help the
Glades Area in the event of a hur-
ricane or other disaster.
Steve Nisbet, Sr., Owner of.Nis-
bet Enterprises said "It is always
wonderful to give back to the
community, the information the
Red Cross provides is critical and
we are glad to be able to help."
The Red Cross recommends
three actions that everyone should
take to be prepared for disasters:
Get a Kit -- Including water
(one gallon per person per day),
food, flashlights, first aid kits,
medications, radio, tools, cloth-
ing, personal items, sanitary sup-
plies, money, contact information
and pet supplies.
Make a Plan -- Discuss a disas-
ter plan with your family, choose
two places to meet, know how to
turn off your utilities and practice
your plan.
Be Informed -- Learn what di-
sasters or emergencies may occur
in your community, identify how
you will receive your information,
and contact the Red Cross about
disaster and CPR/First Aid train-
ing.
For more information about
preparing in the event of a hurri-
cane or other disaster, please call
(888) 237-7408 or visit www.red-
cross-pbc.org.


Applications are still open,
through Aug.31, for the Leader-
ship Program for Hendry and
Glades Counties. The program
begins on Sept. 22 with a new
team building activity. Orienta-
tion is on Oct. 4 and the first of
six learning sessions on Oct. 24
starts this year's exciting Leader-
ship Program.
The class is limited to 20 and
members will be selected by
committee to participate in Civic
& Cultural, Government & Judi-
cial, Agri-business, Health & Edu-
cation, Growth Management, and
Water & Environment. One day
per month starting in October,
excluding December, and fin-
ishing in April will be dedicated
to one of the above mentioned
subjects. Participants will receive
a comprehensive education as
they learn all about the amenities
in Hendry and Glades Counties.


They'll be introduced to some of
the needs and challenges as well.
A few comments from last
year's class include:
"The class overall was a won-
derful experience. Can't wait to
be a part of future classes."
"A really great day: very in-
formative and interesting. Well
done,"
"Great presentation,"
"A very good program,"
"Outstanding. Very engaging
and full of great info."
Tuition is $500 to cover the
cost of the program including

Church hosts outreach event


The Wesleyan Community
Holiness Church in partnership
with Palm Beach Gardens' Christ
Fellowship, its primary outreach
supporter, conducted a major
event on Saturday, Aug. 11 from
8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The event
featured a cook out, which in-
cluded food, drinks, jump rope,
face painting and more. This was
followed by the school supplies
giveaway. Thanks to Palm Beach
Gardens Christ Fellowship there


were about 50 volunteers who
distributed school supplies and
cooked and served the food as
well. More than 300 people ben-
efited from this event. On behalf
of our community's recipients,
Reverend Davis thanks God and
P.B.G.C.F. for their generosity and
compassion. Thanks to Sher-
iff Rick Bradshaw, for the many
deputies that were there to help
control the crowd.

na, entailing construction of parking facilities, restaurant, restrooms, swimming
pool and related appurtenances and th construction and operation of a surface
water management system to serve the proposed marina development..

kee, Palm Beach County, 33476, Section 18, Township 42 South, Range 37'East,

This permit is granted unless a timely petition for an administrative proceeding
(hearing) s filed pursuant to the provisions of 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida
statutes, before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning
for a hearing are set forth below,
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed
permitting decision.may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain
the information set forth below and must be filed (received by the Clerk) in the Of-
fice of General Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard,
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000.
Petitions by the applicant or any of the parties listed below must be filed within 21
days of receipt of this written notice. Petitions filed by any persons other than
these entitled to written notice under section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes
must be filed within 21 days of publication of the notice or within 21 days of re-
ceipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first.
In accordance with rule 62-110.106(3), Florida Administrative Code, petitions for an
administrative hearing by the applicant must be filed within 21 days of receipt of
such notice, regardless of the date of publication.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the,address indicat-
ed above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition or request
for mediation within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that
person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under sections
120.569 and 120.57 of Florida Statutes. Any subsequent intervention (in a pro-
ceeding initiated by another party) will be only at the discretion of the presiding
officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with rule 28-106.205 of the Flori-
da Administrative Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is
based must contain the following information:
a. The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner; the Department
permit identification number and the county in which the subject matter or activity
is located;
b. A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the
Department action;
c. A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests is affected by the
Department action;
d. A statement of the material facts disputed by the petitioner, if any;
e. A statement of facts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal or
modification of the Department action;
A statement of which rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal
or modification of the Department action; and
g. A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action
that the petitioner wants the Department to take.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action
s based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain
the same information as set forth above, as required by rule 28-106.301.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that he Department's final action may be di
ferent from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial in-
terests will be affected by any such final decision the Department have the right
to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance wth the require-
ments set forth above.
In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elect to pur-
sue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Department a
mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e. the applicant, the De-
partment, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hear-
ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by rule
28-106.404. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of Gener-
al Counsel of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35,
Tallahassee Florida 32399-3000 within ten days after th e for filing a pe-
tition, as set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to
a hearing if mediation does not result in a setement
As provided in section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes, the timely agreement of all
120.57 for holding an administrative hearing and issuing a final order. Unless
otherwise agreed by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty
days of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement of the
administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating the
agreement of the parties. Persons seeking to protect their substantial interests
that would be affected by such a modified final decision must file their petitons
within 21 days of receipt of this notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived
their right to a proceeding under sections 120.569 and 120.57. If mediationter-
minates without settlement of the dispute, the Department shall noify .all parties in
writing that the administrative hearing processes under sections 120.569 and
S120.57 remain available for disposition of the dispute, and the notice will specify
the deadlines that then will apply for challenging the agency action and electing
remedies under those two statutes.
This on is final and effective on the date filed with the Clerk of the Department
unless a petition (or request for mediation) is filed in accordance with the above.
Upon the timely filing of a petition (or request for mediation) this order will not be
effective until further order of the Department.
Any party to the order has the right to seek judicial review of the order under section
120.68 of the Florida Statutes, by the filing of a notice of appeal under rule 9.110
of the Florida Rules of Appellate Procedure with the Clerk of the Department in

The religious rights of students


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian
Church, Clewiston
As a new School Year begins
there is something that parents,
school officials and students need
to know. The following is a list
of activities that today are legally
permissible fdr Christian students
in public schools.
Students in every state are
free to personally express them-
selves in prayer, such as before a
rimeal, a sporting event, or a test.
Students may read the Bible
or other devotional material dur-
ing free-reading times or study
halls.
Students may use note-
books, pencils and other material
with religious logos or sayings,


including Bible verses.
Christiarn messages on T-
shirts, other clothing, or jewelry
may be worn unless there is a
school uniform requirement that
applies equally to everyone. For
example, it is a violation of a stu-
dent's free-speech for a principal
to require that a student turn his
pro-life T-shirt inside out while at
school.
Students may write book re-
ports, present speeches, prepare
show-and-tell displays, or do art-
work using religious themes, pro-
vided such assignments closely
follow the.teacher's instruction.
For example, when an assign-
ment calls for students to bring
in their favorite book to read to
the class, a teacher must permit


a Christian student to read from
the Christian book they describe
as their favorite.
Religious viewpoints may
be shared as part of general class
discussions when appropriate to
the topic.
Equal access to school news-
papers must be given to Christian
students on the same basis as
is given to students with a non-
Christian point of view.
Students may sing religious
music in a general concert pro-
gram; such music is not devotion-
al in a concert setting but has gen-
eral historical and cultural value.
Students may gather on their
own time for devotions before or
after the school day.
Students may distribute


Christian literature to fellow
students or teachers on school
grounds outside class hours.
Voluntary, student-initiated
Bible clubs meet on public sec-
ondary school premises during'
non-instructional time if other,
non-curriculum related student
groups are also permitted to.
meet.
In Louisiana, Mississippi,
Texas and Utah a student volun-
teer may deliver nonsectarian
and non-proselytizing invocations
and benedictions at public high
school graduation ceremonies.
All over this country, a stu-
dent may speak of God and may
offer a prayer in an nonsectarian
and non-proselytizing way in a
student address at graduation.


Claiming forward progress in life


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Football season is upon us!
Growing up, I loved to play the
game! One of my favorite nick-
names during my football days
as a lineman was "Stonewall".
Someone once commented that
running into me was like run-
ning into a stone wall. The name
stuck.
I know that some of you are
avid football fans and .some of
you don't really understand the
fascination of the sport. I read an
article a while back that reported
that a lot of women and some
men 'wished they could share
their spouse's enthusiasm for
football, but they couldn't under-
stand the game. Well, I'm going to
try to help save some marriages
by explaining one of the more im-
portant rules of football, the rule
of "forward progress."
In football, the object of the
game is to get the ball from one
end of the field to the other, thus


scoring a goal. Imagine a football
player running up the field with
the ball, heading toward his goal.
He has only gone a few yards
when .he runs
into "Stonewall
Hicks". Instead
of tackling the
football player
right there,
Stonewall sort
of lifts him up
off the ground
and pushes him John
back beyond the Hicks
place where he s
started. It might look like a terrible
loss, but because of a rule called
"forward progress", the referee
places the ball at the point where
the football player first met Stone-
wall. So, instead of being a loss,
it's actually a gain.
You might be wondering what
all this has to do with us. Well,
in life, as in football, we strive to
attain a goal. Both life and foot-
ball have rules and we have to
play by those rules. The rules of


football may seem complicated,
but the rules of life are infinitely
more complex. Still, life has a rule
very similar to the rule of forward
progress in football. Many times
we work hard, we develop a
game plan, and we start to carry
the ball up the field. We see the
goal posts in sight, then blam!
Something happens. We run into
a brick wall or an obstacle that
sets us back. Things don't go the
way we had planned, the way we
had hoped. We get pushed back,
shaken down and roughed up by
the opposition. It may. even ap-
pear that we are thrown for a loss.
But actually, we are not. The Ref-
eree is watching the game closely
and He's going to give us credit
for the progress we made. That's
forward progress in life!
Just like in football and life, the
church has goals. Jesus outlined
one of our major goals when He
instructed His followers to, "Go,
make disciples of all nations, bap-
tizing them in the name of the Fa-
ther and of the Son and of the Holy


Spirit and teach them to obey ev-
erything that I have commanded
you." That's what we are about.
In the end, everything we do must
to be held up to that goal making
disciples for Jesus Christ.
The thing to remember in all
of this is not to get discouraged.
Things may be tough. We may not
have the growth we envisioned,
but we need to remember that we
are still in the game. For a time we
may need to rely on forward prog-
ress: gaining a few yards, being
,pushed back, gaining a few more
and being pushed back again. For
a time, we may even be thrown
for a temporary loss but we
have the promise that all things
will work for the good of them
that love the Lord, for those who
are called according to His name..
(Romans 8:28)
Therefore, we are still contend-
ers! Let us not loose sight of the
game plan or He that is in control
of the game! In all things, let us
press on to goal of our high call-
ing in Christ Jesus!


Does size matter? Big churches and little churches


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
As I was seeking informa-
tion about a bill I received, I was
asked for an identifying number.
After giving a
telephone num- ':
ber, an account
number, there
still was an-
other number
needed before
the person at .-
the company of-
fice would talk Samuel S.
to me about my Thomas
account. There
was a time when my name would
have been sufficient, but things
have gotten much more imper-
sonal and numbers-oriented. I
went by my name in high school,
but had my first.student number
when I enrolled in college. When
I enrolled in seminary, my name
was sufficient. Later, in graduate
school, I was given another stu-
dent number. One school used
social security numbers; that was
before there were identity theft
problems that are common now.
After graduations, I'd need to
write for transcripts from time to
time and schools would'ask for my


student number if I remembered
it after all of those years. Not so
with the seminary; my name and
date of graduation was sufficient.
The difference was that the semi-
nary was a small school and the
universities were big ones.
For a long time, I would be
able to call the seminary and be
remembered; could ask about an
old professor and learn what was
. going on. It was something per-
sonal, something special; some-
thing possible because we were
small in numbers and not as "insti-
tutionalized." I finished an article
on the tendency today toward big
churches; some call them "mega-
churches" with membership in
the thousands. It seems that no
sooner do people get involved in
such churches, than they're intro-
duced to a smaller group within
the large one, or become part of
a small fellowship, or a church-
'within-a-church.
My seminary had about 25
students in our graduating class.
My high school had around 600
and the universities numbered in
the thousands..The small school
experience was different; it in-
volved being part of a community
as well as gathering up credits. It
involved working together rather
than competing with other stu-


dents. We would study as a group
and if we had a problem the night
before the test, we could call the
professor for some pointers or
clarifications.
Small numbers brought an
appreciation for the gifts of each
member, the ability to collabo-
rate without competing, sharing
a common joy of victory when
we accomplished something to-
gether.
Over the years, I've served both
large and small congregations;
the largest being around fourteen
hundred persons and the small-
est numbering about fifty mem-
bers. One had more resources;
the other had' greater intimacy,
family feeling; the capacity to be
personal.
One church was good at ac-
complishing tasks; the other at
helping people in their daily lives.
My big-church experiences were
often devoted to groups and orga-
nizations, dealing with problems
having time constraints, putting
out "brush fires" and being more
of an administrator than pastor.
One day, I found myself in
a small church. People would.
come and visit and I didn't have to
worry about their "interruptions"
if we went on a long time, or I
could visit and not worry about


pushing things out of my sched-
ule to get back to a meeting or to
share in a group.
Looking back, I've spent most
of my time in smaller churches
and I thank God for them. I've
learned that "bigger isn't always
better" and numbers don't auto-
matically mean happiness or sal-
vation.
One writer told about the ex-
perience people had with early
aircraft sitting outside at airports.
There were problems with hu-
midity and moisture and static
electricity. The solution was to
build hangers., Soon the hangers
got bigger and bigger. Soon they
were so big that clouds formed
in them; and with the clouds
came moisture and humidity and
static electricity! There must have
been something special about
Jesus calling only twelve dis-
ciples. He didn't seem to worry
about numbers or large buildings
or an achievement orientation.
Rather, the disciples went out and
touched lives, and things grew be-
yond their wildest imaginations.
There is something very spe-
cial about a small Church or small.
community or small group or
class. Part of it is the very personal
nature of it all; to me, that can be
down right "religious."
