Lewis faces fraud charges


Employee allegedly
used city gas to fuel
up own vehicle

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY Holding, a
public office is something that
one should never take lightly.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
Eric Merrell Lewis didn't get the
message.


Mr. Lewis, 36, who had most
recently served as the commu-
nity develop-
ment director
for the City .
of South Bay,
was arrested
on Oct. 11 and
charged with
official miscon-
duct, organized
scheme to de- Eric Merrell
fraud, fraudu- Lewis
lent use of per-
sonal identification information,
petit theft and interfering with an


official investigation. '
He was released on bond
Oct. 12.
According to the probable
cause affidavit by the sheriff's of-
fice, the suspect was caught us-
ing city funds to put gas into his
personal vehicle -- a strict viola-
tion of the city's guidelines.
Deputies caught the man in
the act on July 5 at the BP gas
station in South Bay. After the
suspect left the gas station, depu-
ties entered the store and spoke
with a witness who said that he
forged a signature and wrote

that two trucks had been fueled,
according to the affidavit.
The man whose signature
was forged said that he hadn't
fueled a vehicle at the gas sta-
tion.
The city's former manager,
Tony Smith, told deputies that
Mr. Lewis was not authorized
to pump gas into his personal
vehicle. As part of the investiga-
tion, the manager said that the
suspect had committed other
acts of official misconduct.
After being told that charges
were going to be filed with the


State Attorney's Office, the sus-
pect allegedly contacted the
former city manager about the
details of the incident, according
to the affidavit.
Mr. Smith later contacted
deputies, expressing concerns
that the suspect as allempling
to intimidate him.
Mr. Lewis was officially termi-
nated on July 30.
It isn't the first time that Mr.
Lewis has been accused of using
his position for wrongdoing.

supports inland



port project


Local leaders hope
inland port project
will be reality

By Naji Tobias

BELLE GLADE For a
project that could bring much
growth to the area, would any-
one vote against-it?
Not when what's being
considered is the inland port
project -: a concept that prom-
ises to bring much-needed
economic stimulus to the local
communities.
There wasn't much of a dis-


cussion about it, just the vote;
During Monday night's
commission meeting, the
Belle Glade commissioners
unanimously voted to support
the development of an inland
port near the Okeelanta site in
South Bay. The site could serve
as the central location for a vital
inland hub for transportation,
manufacturing and distribu-
tion.
The project aims to take
advantage of the location of
U.S. 27 that runs across South
Florida.
Leaders are hoping that the

Gators romped by Stallions


Glades Day rushing
defense gives up
257 yards

By Naji Tobias
Independent Newspapers
DELRAY BEACH The
contest between Glades Day
and American Heritage was
billed as one of the best games
of the year.
It was anything but.
The Gators were handily
defeated by the Stallions in the
game, 33-8, as the defense al-
lowed American Heritage to
gain 257 rushing yards 322
total yards for the contest and


four rushing touchdowns.
Also, Glades Day's special
teams were not on point, at
least when it comes to a Tony
Walker punt blocked by Ameri-
can Heritage senior Matt Fox.
Subsequently, the blocked
punt resulted in a 45-yard spe-
cial team's touchdown from
Stallions sophomore Darius Mi-
lines to put American Heritage
up, 6-0.
That was less than four min-
utes into the game.
Many Gators possessions'
ended with punts and the
Stallions capitalized on a few
of those stalled Glades Day
drives.
With 1:09 left in the first


quarter, the Gators saw them-
selves trailing 13-0 after Stal-
lions senior running back Jake
Walker ran through the middle

of Glades Day's defense for a
31-yard touchdown run.
In the second quarter, Gators
junior quarterback Bo Schlect-
er was picked off by Stallions
cornerback Dominique Battle,
although that play was ques-
tionable because it appeared
that it should have been a pass
interference penalty on Ameri-
can Heritage.
The play in question was on

History museum to be built in honor of Belle Glade farm family


WEST PALM BEACH The
Wedgworth family's companies
have donated a significant gift
to the Historical Society of Palm
Beach County's capital campaign
to build the Richard and Pat John-
son Palm Beach County History
Museum. The much-anticipated,
first county-wide history museum
is scheduled to open in March
2008 within the historic 1916
Courthouse in downtown West
Palm Beach. Three generations
of Wedgworths have transformed
the agricultural community of
Western Palm Beach County en-
abling the county's production
to be marketed across the United
States.
"There is so much to be
learned about the present and
the future of our community by
understanding our past," said
George Wedgworth, Chairman of
the Board of the Wedgworth com-
panies who, along with his sisters
Barbara Oetzman and the late
Helen Boynton, made the gift to
the Museum. "Palm Beach Coun-
ty's history is anchored in agricul-
ture being the key economic en-
gine throughout the 20th Century.
Yet, many residents today have
little understanding about the
economic role agriculture plays in
the region. We believe this knowl-
edge is important for the success
of future generations."
The Wedgworth family came
to Palm Beach County in 1930
when Herman Wedgworth ac-
cepted a position as a research
plant pathologist at the University
of Florida's Everglades Research
& Education Center in Belle
Glade. He is credited with discov-
ering a manganese deficiency a
soil nutrient deficiency in the
growing of winter vegetables.

Farms.


With the addition of minor nutri-
ents, the Everglades Agricultural
Area (EAA) is now considered,


at the national level, as an almost
ideal place' to'farm. Recognizing
that the family's financial future


was tied to the land, Wedgworth
began acquiring virgin land for
farming. Additionally, he began
the construction of a fertilizer
plant, vegetable pre-cooling plant,
and packing house so fresh pro-
duce could be shipped to markets
along the east coast. Unfortunate-
ly, he was tragically killed at the
age of 37. His wife, Ruth Springer
Wedgworth, took over for her
husband and worked side-by-
side with the farm's employees to
build Wedgworth Farms, and the
packing house and fertilizer plant,
Wedgworth, Inc.
The Wedgworth's only son,
George, attended Michigan State
University, where he earned a de-
gree in Agricultural Engineering.
Upon graduation, he and his wife,
Peggy Rawls Wedgworth returned
to Belle Glade to help his mother
run the family businesses. George
Wedgworth is credited for recog-
nizing -the stability that growing
sugarcane gave to the Glades
area vegetable farms. In 1960, he
and 16 fellow Glades area farm-
ers banded together and formed
Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative
of Florida (Cooperative). The Co-
operative is Belle Glade's single
largest employer and consists of
some 48 grower-members all lo-
cated in Palm Beach County. The
primary functions of the Coopera-
tive are the harvesting, transport-
ing and processing of sugarcane
and the marketing of raw sugar.
In the late 1990s, the Coop-
erative with Florida Crystals Cor-
poration; purchased RSI, a sugar
refinery in Yonkers, New York so
that the Cooperative could bring
sugar from the fields of Palm
Beach County to dining room ta-
bles in the eastern United States.

Celebrating life is focus


of Baby Shower events


PALM BEACH COUNTY In
September, Families First hosted
two baby shower events for 30
high-risk pregnant women. One
baby shower was in Belle Glade
and a second in West Palm
Beach.
"Celebrating the birth of a
child is one of the wonders of life.
At Families First we help these
women celebrate by giving them
these baby showers," said, Julie
Swindler, Executive Director of
Families First. Most of the women
attending wouldn't have had the
opportunity to even have a show-
er to celebrate their pregnancy if
it weren't for Families First.
Families' First offices were
decorated with balloons, stream-
ers and party favors for all! There
was plenty of food. A baby show-
er wouldn't be complete without
plenty of fun baby shower games.
Among the games the moms
played was who can drink from
a baby bottle the fastest and baby
bingo. Each expectant mother left
the shower with a baby gift bas-
ket packed with diapers, wipes,
baby shampoo, lotion, powder,
bibs and a receiving blanket.
The women attending the


shower were also provided with
educational materials for having
a healthy baby during pregnancy
and after. They also received a
brand new Graco-Century baby
car seat, a gift that every mom
needs.
"We could never have done
these showers without the sup-
port from community donations,"
-stated Ms. Swindler.
The Targeted Outreach for
Pregnant Women Act (TOPWA)
one of six programs under The
Families First umbrella, was fund-
ed by the Florida Legislature in
1998, as a unique street outreach
program where our specially
trained staff goes out into the
community and engage women
who may be pregnant and at risk
of not having a healthy baby. The
program offers free pregnancy
testing, free HIV testing and link-
age to appropriate community
services and resources to bring
healthy children into the world.
Anyone wanting to donate
new baby items or volunteer to
help us ,with the next baby show-
er should contact Families First
at (561) 881-5572 or on line at

HENDRY COUNTY First
Bank, a member of the Inde-
pendent Community Bankers
of America (ICBA), which rep-
resents 5,000 community banks
nationwide, said that community
banks remain a stable source of
mortgage and small business
loans even as the national mar-
ket is being buffeted by talk of a
credit crunch.
"Despite talk of a credit crunch,
the truth is community banks are
open for business," said Deborah
Van Sickle, Senior Vice President
of First Bank. "Community bank-
ing is a relationship-oriented
business. First Bank is here for
our community to not only help
families get a Mortgage Loan, but
help them get: a Mortgage Loan
that's right for them for in the
long-term. So, whether you are
a first time home buyer or a bor-
rower who hopes to refinance an
existing mortgage, you will serve
yourself well if you start your loan
search with us."
The community banking busi-
ness is weathering this latest crisis
in the mortgage market because
local banks are well run, highly
capitalized and among the most
highly regulated industry in the


country. "Local banks provide
a stable and reliable source of
mortgage money," stated Miller
Cause, President of First Bank.
"We encourage community resi-
dents and business owners to
come see us. Our staff is avail-
able to discuss your Mortgage
Loan needs and any other loan
request."
"Wall Street may be suffering
but our community banks are in
solid shape and open for busi-
ness" said Mali Chamness, City of

foundation of economic develop-
ment as well as community re-
development. Today, consumers
and communities can continue to
rely on local, community banks
that have succeeded in helping

Critters to watch out for worms in the grass


By Dan Culbert
Okeechobee Extension
Horticulture Agent
Last week's gardening column
on the Yellow-necked caterpil-
lar that is chewing up local oaks
has opened up a "can of worms."
Our Master Gardeners have been
crawling with all kinds of caterpil-
lar calls in the past week.
Today's column will talk about
one of these critters that came
from a local lawn. This one is
worth worrying about, as it's that
time of year to be dealing with
turf caterpillars too. Identifica-
tion is very important, as we have
had a few others creepy crawlies
in our local Florida Yards that are
not a problem. And the decision
on what if anything to do depends
on whom they are.
From Grass to FrassOne of last
week's office, visitors brought in
a container filled with a bunch
of caterpillars collected from his
lawn. They were generally tan in
color, but had some thin stripes of
color running the length of their
two-inch long bodies. A close
look at their eyes showed they
were striped too! Our visitor said
they have reduced a part of his
lawn to a pile of frass the polite
word for what these insects leave
behind.
The identification stumped
me at first. I've seen and heard of
caterpillars that can consume our
Florida lawns, but had not seen
these worms. When disturbed,
they had an inchworm-like habit:
"they are kind of loopy," I said
- and that prompted Angela to
suggest that maybe they are some
kind of looper.
Boy was she right! A little
searching around and she nailedit
- these crawlies are called Striped
Grass Loopers, one of three com-
mon caterpillars that can chomp
down a lawn. Alachua County
Horticulture Agent Wendy Wil-
ber reports that besides this
striped grass looper (SGL), two
other lawn caterpillars active at
this time of year, are tropical sod
webworms TSW) and fall army-
worms (FA). The caterpillars all
develop into moths, but you nor-
mally don't notice the adults un-
less the outbreak is severe.
To get a sense of how bad an
infestation is before your lawn
completely 'disappears, moni-
tor for the caterpillars Look for
chewed leaves and follow-up the
search with a soil drench. Drench
the soil with a soap solution of
two" tablespoons of dishwash-

pasture in Okeechobee. The Striped Grass Looper can also

ing soap in two gallons of water;
pour this solution over a square
yard of grass and watch for pests
crawling out of the soil and on to
the grass blades.
If you are able to identify as
few as three loopers or army-
worms per square foot, it's time
to take corrective action. For
the tropical sod webworms, the


threshold is much higher wait
to treat until levels are as many as
10 to 20 tropical sod webworms
square foot.
There are many beneficial in-
sects that feed on these caterpil-
lars. Dr. Ron Cave, a Bio-Control
expert at the UF Research Center
in Ft. Pierce, found that in Hon-
duras there are as many as 31


different kinds of predators and
parasites that can consume this
species. There are not as many as
that here, but ants, ground bee-
tles, rove beetles and wasps can
all eat these lawn-munching cat-
erpillars. Bottom-line: try to use
pesticides as a last resort, and use
the least toxic method first.
If you catch the caterpillars
when they are still young,'a prod-
uct containing Bacillus thuringi-
ensis or "Bt" will work. Some
trade names for products with
this material are Dipel, Thuricide
or Safer's Caterpillar killer. If the
problem is ongoing, you will
need to spot treat with an insecti-
cide like Scott's MaxGard orSevin.
Insecticide use should be ideally
timed for about two weeks after
peak moth activity noted, and is
most effective in the early evening
when larvae begin feeding.
Baker County CED Mike Sweat
also says these are a problem in
pastures. The striped grass looper
damage is similar to the chew-
ing on forages done by fall ar-
myworm. And like the fall army-
worm, female moths prefer to lay
their eggs on tender new growth.
Population studies have found
that some kinds of pasture grass-
es are favored by the loopers, so
get with us for the research re-
sults if these insects are affecting
your business of growing pasture
grasses.

BELLE GLADE Destiny
By Choice, Inc. is a non-profit
.(501C3) organization was found-
ed and established in May of 2000
as the Faith based Social Arm of
New Destiny
Family Worship
Center in Belle
Glade, under the
leadership and
direction of the
honorable Pas-
tor J.R. Thicklin
after seeing the
need to provide Pastor J.r.
education and Thicklin
training and
support for victims and potential
victims of domestic violence. DBC
was birthed out of the burden for
families and victims impacted by
domestic violence and oftentimes
not having resources to support
them and provide safety and or
support especially in rural areas
of the county and state.
Pastor J.R. Thicklin, who is a
very strong advocate inside of the
domestic violence movement,
having worked for a number of
years for domestic violence cen-
ters and domestic and sexual
assault programs began by of-
fering educational support group
services for victims of domestic
violence, clients needing anger
management and those that
needed parenting education. In
addition to those services DBC
would teach his Award winning
Youth Anti-Violence Education
Curriculum in high schools and
middle schools receiving tremen-
dous evaluations and reviews
much in the same manner when
he was the recipient of the Gov-
ernors Peace At Home Award for
Educating Children.
Destiny by Choice has served
the communities of Belle Glade,
South Bay and Pahokee for seven
years. They have been one of the
only providers in the Glades area
to provide domestic violence edu-
cation and support group classes.
They have a 12-week victims
(Womeh Only) support group
(RESTORE) that addresses the
dynamics of domestic violence,
safety, and survival and have pro-
vided other support services and
linkage including but not limited
to relocation assistance as well as
clothing and some monetary as-
sistance. DBC also provides a 12-
week Anger Management Class
(ARMS) for non-intimate partner
offenders, as well as a 16 Week
Modified Batterer's Intervention
Program for Male Perpetrators of
Domestic Violence (DEAR). DBC


also offers a 16-week Modified
Batterer's Intervention Program
for Women Perpetrators of Do-
mestic Violence.
DBC provides outreach to in-
dividuals, children and families
through prevention and interven-
tion education as well as sup-
port groups addressing domestic
violence, anger management,
batterer's intervention, youth ant-
violence education and parenting
education from both a faith and
practical approach.
The Department of Children
& Families and Child and Family
Connections refer victims to our
classes. Clients are also referred
from the Courts as well as Pride
and Probation.
Destiny by Choice provides an
array of services in the Glades area
and has literally done so with little
to no funding. DBC has worked to
provide Community Awareness
about Domestic Violence in times
past being the only entity that
has provided Candlelight Vigils in
each of the municipalities. DBC
has sponsored Domestic Violence
Luncheons and Breakfast free of
charge having in attendance Law
Enforcement, Clergy, Attorneys,
Mental Health Providers, Victim
Services, Advocates, Survivors
and Students.
DBC has provided much to
the Glades Community and has
done so with very little to no sup-
port. In spite of the fact of being
forced to close their office doors
in November 2004 after the back
to back Hurricanes, Frances and
Jean; plus, lack of funding; DBC
resumed serving clients in the
Glades in January of 2005, con-
ducting their classes and support
services at the Old Peppi Head
Start in Belle Glade and later at
First Care Family Resource Center
as of April of 2007.
Recognizing that the Faith
Community was silent in address-
ing and responding to domestic
violence and other related abuses,
DBC began hosting and provid-
ing Symposiums, Breakfast and
Luncheons to raise awareness
of Domestic Violence and to en-
gage Faith leaders to get involved
as well as build relationships be-
tween the Faith Community, Law
Enforcement, and Social Services.
DBC held candlelight vigils to re-
member victims and survivors of
domestic violence.
In 2004 DBC began to give
greater attention to educating
and empowering the Faith Com-
munity about the dynamics of
Domestic Violence and response


and prevention. DBC now pro-
vides specialized training to
the Clergy and Faith Communi-
ties, Coalitions and Advocates,
Schools and Day Care Providers,
Neighborhood Associations and
Government, Businesses, Courts
and Healthcare about domestic
violence and our systematic re-
sponse in addressing it.
The demands and success of
the work of Destiny by Choice has
caused it to reach out throughout
Palm Beach and neighboring
counties. DBC is currently looking
to establish a West Palm Beach
office as the main office and
headquarters and establish the
Rural Offices in Belle Glade.
Pastor J.R. Thicklin is the Se-
nior Pastor and Teacher of King-
dom Harvest Ministries, a non-de-
nominational ministry located in
West Palm Beach, Florida and the
CEO and President of Destiny By
Choice, Inc. where he is empow-
ering lives and shaping destinies
of those affected by abuse and
violence through prevqption and
intervention, helping and heal-
ing.
J.R. Thicklin has been on the
front lines in addressing domestic
violence for nearly two decades,
having worked in Domestic Vio-
lence Centers, making presenta-
tions and educating in middle
and high schools, colleges and
universities as well as in churches
and the social services arena. He
is considered a strong advocate
and domestic violence specialist
having addressed countless thou-
sands of seminar and conferences
participants. His vast knowledge
of the subject matter and passion-
ate dynamic delivery has made
him a much sought after speaker,
presenter and trainer in'both the
Faith and Secular Communities.
Pastor Thicklin's ability to present
this information in a language that
the Faith Community can identify
with and understand makes him
an unique advocate ip addressing
this subject matter.
DBC is in need of financial,
technical, and other resources in
order to continue to do the valu-
able work that it does. DBC pro-
pose to help bridge the gap be-
tween the Community and Law
Enforcement and the Courts by
doing the following:
Providing forums, Family &
Community Awareness Events
and Activities.
Helping to Foster a Citi-
zens & Law Enforcement Forum
where citizens get the opportuni-
ties to bring their concerns to Law

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and

West Glades Panthers stand proud on the volleyball court as
they go head-to-head with the LaBelle Middle School Bron-
cos for the second time this season. Without a gym of their
own the girls and their coaches have been toughing it out,
practicing outside in the grass rain or shine.

WES volleyball: All champions


West Glades School is excited
about its first ever competitive
sports teams. Coach Wills and
Coach Pio have had a great time
with the volleyball team and have
seen the girls grow tremendously
in spite of the lack of facilities.
Most middle school teams
have a gym, proper equipment
and experience. The girls on the
WGS volleyball team have had to
practice outside in the grass, use
second rate equipment, withstand


heat, rain, wind and anything else
mother nature had to offer.
The coaches are really proud
of all that the girls have accom-

The suspect was previously
charged with two counts of grand
theft in 2004 and a third count of
grand theft in 2002, sheriff's offi-
cials said.
In one of the cases, the suspect
had reportedly devised a scheme
to defraud while employed as the
community development man-
ager for the city of Belle Glade.
According to the affidavit,
the suspect used his position to
fraudulently accept and main-
tain possession of mortgage pay-
ments paid by the victim. It was
reportedly understood by the vic-
tim that the payments would be
forwarded by the suspect to the
mortgage company.
Tony Smith, who was the
Belle Glade city manager at the


time, hired Mr. Lewis in 1999. Mr.
Lewis then took a job with the
city of South Bay in November of
2001 and was terminated by the
city after the grand theft charges
surfaced.
Mr. Smith, who became the
South Bay city manager, re-hired
Mr. Lewis in April of 2005.
Virginia Walker, South Bay's
acting city manager, said that all
city employees are now subject-
ed to background checks.
"If we hire anyone for the
City of South Bay, then they will
be now extensively screened to
make sure they don't have any
convictions," said .Ms. Walker.
"It's time for the city to go for-
ward and operate the proper
way. We need to cooperate with
each other and work for the city,.
not against it." -

cess and aspects of grief, which
included four grieving periods:
shock, protest, disorganization
and reorganization.
Within the first six months of
one's grieving period, it is pos-
sible that feelings of numbness
and depersonalization surface. A
loss of appetite, disbelief, confu-
sion and crying are typical when
someone loses a loved one.
The next stage, protest, takes
place between the sixth and
eighth month of the grieving pro-
cess. Painful memories, dreams,
social withdrawal, guilt and an-
ger are some of the emotions that
a person goes through.
Between the eighth and 12th
month, headaches and negative
thinking can start to creep in.
Absent-mindedness and anxiety
often come into play.
It isn't usually until the first
year has passed that most people
finally begin thinking positively.
According to Maria Ethan,
Hospice director of supportive
care said that the 'nature of grief'
was developed because people
may not be aware of what their
needs are.
"We wanted to give people
an opportunity to gather together
and learn from each other," Ms.
Teahan said. "We want the be-
reaved families to be armed with
information so that they know
about the grieving process."
The series plays an important
role, Ms. Teahan said.

second quarter. The play before
that was a 10-yard run by senior
running back Earnest Jackson
that should have resulted in a first
down; it was nullified because of
a holding penalty on Glades Day.
Later in the second quarter,
the Stallions kept their running.
game flowing smoothly as senior
quarterback Justin Feagin ran for
a 44-yard touchdown with 23 sec-
onds in the first half to put Ameri-
can Heritage up 19-0.
In the third quarter, however,
Glades Day seemed to want to
get back into this game. Methodi-
cally churning out their best drive
of the game, the Gators cooked
up a 12-play, 58 yard drive all on
running plays.
Jackson ran the ball efficiently
for the majority of the drive, rack-
ing up 57 yards on nine carries.
But junior running back Cody
Davis ran the ball in for a 1-yard
touchdown with 5:38 left in the
third quarter.
After a successful two-point
conversion by Glades Day, they
were now down 19-8.
But that's the closest the Ga-
tors would get for this game.
The fourth quarter was one
that Glades Day would like to for-
get, as the defense allowed two
rushing touchdowns on consecu-
tive drives.
With 7:16 left in the game,
Feagin ran for a I-yard touch-

"When families are going
through the grieving process,,
we want them to know that they.
don't have to walk their grief jour-i

The group is opening the se-

The next series will begin
Wednesday, Oct. 24 at Glades
General Hospital's Conference
Center from 10 until 11 a.m. The
classes are open to the commu-,
nity free of charge.
If anyone was wondering, the
second part of the series is en-,
titled 'Coping With Grief,' while.
the final part of the series is en-
titled 'What Do I do now."
Hospice is hoping that ap-
proximately 20 people come out
for the series...
"I hope that our program,
will become a collaborative ef-
fort with the Glades .area," Ms.:
Teahan said. "We feel committed
to the families and we want to be
part of the community."

down and only two minutes later,
Walker put the icing on. the cake
with a 65-yard touchdown run
right through the middle of the
Gators' defense.
"We had a gut-wrenching
loss," Gators head coach Pete
Walker said. "We did not tackle
well, we needed to score points
and keep the defense off the field
but we didn't do that. We were
moving the ball a bit but didn't
finish drives. I didn't expect the
game to turn out this way but it
showed us that we have a lot of
work to do."
Schlecter struggled mightily in
this contest, completing only 4 of
15 passes for 35 yards, no touch-
downs and one interception:
Jackson was the lone bright spot
on offense, gaining 129 yards on
22 carries.
Other bright spots for Glades
Day included 191 rushing yards
for the game and 13 first downs.
But the biggest problem for the
Gators was that they allowed two
Stallions to gain over 100 yards
rushing.
Feagin had 101 rushing yards
on 12 carries with two touch-
downs and was 6-for-8 pass-
ing with 65 yards, while Walker
rushed for 127 yards on only sev-
en carries and two touchdowns.
Glades Day, now 4-2 overall
and 1-0 in their district, have an
important home game against
district opponent St. John New-
man tomorrow night.

County offers Premarital Prep class for free


PALM BEACH COUNTY-The
wedding lasts a day, marriage is a
lifetime!
Current research shows there
is a 33 percent lower divorce
rate among couples who attend
a premarital preparation class.
Research also indicates that suc-
cessful couples have the same


number of disagreements and
disagree about all the same basic
issues as couples who divorce.
The difference between success-
ful and unsuccessful couples is
how they handle their disagree-
ments.
Premarital Preparation class
can help prevent divorce


The Palm Beach County Co-
operative Extension Service, an
approved provider by the 15th
Judicial Circuit, has scheduled its
next premarital preparation class
for Tuesday and Wednesday, Oct.
23 and 24, from 6 9 p.m.
The cost is $20 and couples
must attend both sessions to


get the three-day waiting period
waived and a $32.50 discount on
their marriage license. Classes will
be held at the Clayton Hutcheson
Agricultural Services Center, 559
N. Military Trail in West Palm
Beach.

New system to reduce wait time at tax office


WEST PALM BEACH Palm
Beach County Tax Collector Anne
M. Gannon introduced a new cus-
tomer queuing system designed
to reduce wait time for services.
The West Palm Beach branch is
the first branch to implement the
new system.
Clients registerwith a reception-
ist and are given a ticket based on
the service they are seeking. Cli-


ents are then directed to a seated
waiting area and are called upon,
based on their ticket number.
"This new system makes a
visit to our office fast, efficient and
comfortable for our clients," said
Ms. Gannon. "The new system is
mutually beneficial for the clients
and the Tax Collector's Office.
Clients are seated in a comfort-
able atmosphere and directed to


the appropriate employee for ex-
pedient service."
"The tax collector's office is
able to collect performance data,
such as transaction time and real-
time service demand, to set com-
pany-wide service standards,"
shared James McConnell, down-
town West Palm Beach branch
manager.
Plans are under way for the


construction of a play area to ac-
commodate the children of par-
ents conducting business at the
office.
"We are looking forward to
rolling out the new system to all
branches," said Ms. Gannon.

tor's office, please visit our web-

Checking your smoke alarms could save your life


It's Fire Prevention Month so
what better time to check your
smoke alarms ensuring the safety
of your home and loved ones.
According to the National Fire
Protection Association (NFPA), in
one-quarter of the reported fires
in homes equipped with smoke
alarms, the devices did not work.


Homes without working smoke
alarms now out number those
with no smoke alarms.
A smoke alarm should be
placed outside of every sleeping
area, as well as on every level of
your home. Check your smoke
alarm at least once a month by


pressing the test button until you
hear the audible sound. Persons
who are deaf or heard of hearing
should consider the installation
of an alarm that provides flashing
lights, vibration and/or sound.
Alarm units that are more than
ten years old should be replaced.


If you are not sure how old your
alarm is, it is probably good
idea to go ahead and replace it.
Monthly maintenance of alarms
should be performed according
to the manufacturer's instruc-
tions. Replace the batteries in
your smoke alarm at least once
a year.


Installation should be made
following the manufacturer's in-
structions. Wall mounted alarms
should be placed no less than
four and no more than twelve
inches from the ceiling. Homes
with vaulted ceilings should place
the alarm at the highest point of
the ceiling. Do not install smoke


alarms near windows, doors, or
ducts where drafts might inter-
fere with their operation.
For more information on
smoke alarm installation, mainte-
nance and facts, visit the National
Fire Protection Association web-
site at www.nfpa.org.


Bronson announces new food and safety partnership


TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced that the Flori-
da Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services will work with
the University of Florida, Institute
of Food and Agricultural Sciences
(IFAS), to develop and deliver
statewide food safety educational
materials and training for agricul-
tural producers and workers.
The Food Safety Partnership


Program will enhance the safety
and competitiveness of Florida
specialty crops. The program
is funded by the USDA Specialty
Crop Block Grant in the amount
of $253,000 and will be a multi-
year program.
"It is critical to develop and
provide materials, training and
outreach activities, so that pro-
ducers and production personnel
adopt and adhere to good food
safety practices to protect the


public," Mr. Bronson said.
The training and materials,
which will be printed in both Eng-
lish and Spanish, will be provided
statewide by Florida extension
professionals to producers, field
workers, packers and re-pack-
ers of fresh fruits and vegetables.
Currently, few materials exist to
train farm workers in food safety
practices. Food safety require-
ments must be clearly commu-
nicated at all levels of production


and handling, Mr. Bronson said.
To keep Florida specialty crops
competitive and to ensure safe
consumption, a series of prac-
tices must be followed to prevent
and reduce microbial or chemical
contamination. The Food Safety
Partnership Program will target
crops associated with the highest
risk of food-borne illness and at
the greatest level of production in
Florida -- tomatoes, leafy greens,


melons and berries.
Florida is the No. 2 producer
of fruits and vegetables in the na-
tion. Cash receipts for agriculture
production in Florida for 2005
were $7.759 billion. According to
USDA data, more than 45 percent
of this amount was derived from
specialty crop production of fresh
fruits and vegetables. The U.S.
Food and. Drug Administration
(FDA) reports that 12 percent of
food-borne illnesses associated


with outbreaks are caused by
produce consumption.
Mr. Bronson said the food
safety training and educational
materials will address safe han-
dling, production and packing of
fruits and vegetables.
"While this issue is important
for our growers to remain com-
petitive in the global marketplace,
it is critically important for the
safety of the consuming public,"
Mr. Bronson said.

both our substantive and our fis-

Citrus industry shown resilient by crop estimates


LAKELAND On Oct. 12, the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) released its first citrus
crop forecast for the 2007-2008
season, predicting 168 million
boxes of oranges, a 30 percent in-
crease from last season's total of
129 million boxes.
"We're excited to see the es-
timate of 168 million boxes this
season," said Michael W Sparks,
executive vice president/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual. "This is a
- testament to the Florida citrus
growers' resiliency and commit-
ment to the industry."
The Florida Citrus Industry
saw a decline in orange produc-
tion from 230 million boxes to 129
million boxes during the five-year
period between the 2001-2002


season and the 2006-2007 season.
This reduction was due in large
part to the effects of hurricanes
and pests and diseases such as
citrus canker and greening.
"As we all know, Florida citrus
has faced a myriad of challenges
throughout the past few years,"
said Mr. Sparks. "Yet the indus-
try continues to persevere and
remain a vital player in Florida's
economy."
The USDA predicts 25 million
boxes of grapefruit will be pro-
duced, down from 27.2 million
last season, an eight percent de-
crease.
The forecast for early and mid-
season varieties in Florida, which
includes 3.1 million boxes of
navels, is projected at 81 million


boxes. Valencia oranges are pro-
jected to total 87 million boxes
this season. For Florida specialty
fruit, the USDA predicts 1.3 mil-
lion boxes of tangelos and 5.1
million boxes of tangerines, in-
cluding 2.6 million boxes of early
varieties and 2.5 million boxes of
honey tangerines. The yield for
frozen concentrate orange juice
(FCOJ) is expected to be 1.6 gal-
lons per 90-pound box.
The complete USDA crop fore-
cast is available from the Florida
Agriculture Statistics Service on-
line at http://www.nass.usda.gov/
Statistics_by_State/Florida/ Publi-
cations/Citrus/cpfp.htm.
The citrus industry is vital to
the state of Florida, providing a
$9.1 billion annual economic


impact, employing nearly 90,000
people, and covering more than
620,000 acres.
Founded in 1948 and cur-
rently representing nearly 10,000

God in the mission field


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Sometimes the mission field
isn't safe. Sometimes being true
to God's calling calls us to step
out on faith.
Pat and Me- '
linda are friends .
of ours who an- ,
swered God's
call to go into
the world and
help people hear -'
and experience O
the Word of God John
in their own lan- Hicks
guage. For over
25 years they were with Wycliffe
in Papua New Guinea helping
translate the gospel in a new lan-
guage. They completed this task
and returned to the states.
Shortly after their return, God
called them again. This time, the
call was to go to Nigeria to teach
people how to do translation, so
that they too might be able to
have the gospel in their own lan-
guage.
During their ministry, Pat and
Mel have had many strange and
wonderful experiences, but never
like the one I'd like to share with
you now. Here is their story.
On the first Friday night of our
course, the staff gathered in the


evening to watch a movie. We
were all sitting in the living room,
except Melenda, who had been
sick and was asleep in the adja-
cent bedroom. We had just fin-
ished watching a short video clip
by Campus Crusade, when one of
the women in the kitchen let out a
scream. I turned to look and saw
a man with a pistol to her head
and another holding a rifle.
We all hit the floor at their
command, faces to the ground.
They began frisking everyone,
taking all of the cell phones. Then
one of them fired a shot, which
struck fear into everyone. Within
minutes they had gathered up
nine of our laptop computers and
projectors for class and disap-
peared.
Thank God, no one was hurt,
but three of us, including Me-
lenda and I, found that our new
laptops and passports were now
gone, along with Melenda's wal-
let, money, driver's license and
credit cards.
During the week following the
robbery, we tried to phone the
U.S. Embassy about our stolen
passports. We could only get a
recording telling us to email them
about any emergency and visit
their website for more informa-
tion. We also kept trying to get
a police report to verify the theft,


but they would not cooperate.
Finally, we decided to make
the six-hour drive to the capitol
to see if the embassy would is-
sue us new passports without the
report. We would miss at least
two days of the course, probably
more. We planned to leave on
Sunday, but on Friday afternoon
we heard that our passports had
been found. On Monday, some-
one had found a black plastic
bag by the highway in front of
our house and turned it in to the
principal's office at the nearby
elementary school. It sat in the
office until Thursday, when they
looked inside to see to whom it
belonged. Someone recognized a
photo of one of us and sent word
that they had found something
of ours. We picked up the pack-
age and sure enough, in it was
our passports, Mel's credit cards
and driver's license, car keys, and
various translated chapters which
Pat's language group had spent
months writing out. Only God
could prompt thieves to neatly
bundle together these items and
surreptitiously return them to us!
Pray that what has been trans-
lated will bear fruit in the lives of
those who hear it and that the
translators will be able to com-
plete their assignments over the
next couple of months.


Children, usefulness, and entertainment


By Brian Hamrick
FBC Clewiston
There's a daily morning ritual
in our house when I wake up our
three year old son. Daddy opens
the door to hear a greeting so rou-
tine, you'd think it was a record-
ing. What is it? "Good morning,
Daddy?" Well, not quite. Actually,
the first words each day out of my
son's mouth are, "Daddy, I want
to watch my show."
Entertainment has a powerful
influence over our lives, for both
adults and children. And we live
in an age where it is more read-
ily available from our own living
rooms than previous genera-
tions could have ever imagined.
Entertainment in and of itself is
not bad- the ultimate message I
have for you is not to go out and
destroy your TV and computer.


But, as Gardiner Spring observed,
"Many a child has been lost to
himself, to his family, and to God,
because he had little else to do
but indulge himself.... Many have
been rescued from disgrace and
ruin- and pointed toward indus-
try, accomplishment, and hap-
piness- simply because they had
little time for entertainment."
The truth, is, God made man-
kind to do meaningful work
(Genesis 2:15). Ted Tripp rightly
warns, "When children are never
taught about the joys of work,
when they are allowed to be self-
directed in a life of entertainment
and video games, they never en-
ter into understanding the joys of
meaningful work for which they
were created."
Work has a greater meaning
than just enabling survival or
even prosperity. God made man


for work. Are we teaching that
to our children? Let this be an
encouragement to the parents
that their labors in the battle over
homework are worth the strug-
gle. The swim upstream is worth
it for there is nothing automatic
about a child who was constantly
occupied with indulgences be-
coming a hard working member
of society simply because they
got older.
Let us teach our children the
truth about entertainment. They
will never find enough happi-
ness in it to be satisfied. In fact,
they will find even more pleasure
in developing industrious habits
and making positive contribu-
tions in the world. God didn't
make us to watch TV and movies
all the time or surf the web. He
has something far better in mind-
usefulness!

Can doubting lead to


finding the real truth?


By Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There was some "flap" when
some letters were discovered
which revealed that Mother
Theresa had some doubts. And
why not? The reaction of some
seemed to be that there was
something wrong with doubts,
and that somehow they detract-
ed from her life and work.
Not so! Someone coined the
phrase, "the searching profes-
sions" which included those
vocations and i ` 1
professionsthat
didn't have all
of the answers -
but were work-
ing on them .*
(which ones
do have all of
the answers?) Samuel S.
Finding the Thomas
truth comes
by asking questions; for some
honest searching and for others
"doubt." When finishing gradu-
ate studies, I was approached
to consider a faculty job at the
university where I had been
studying. It certainly would have
been prestigious, a chance to
influence many lives, an oppor-
tunity to expand knowledge and
develop skills to help others. It
certainly was a temptation to
consider it.
I also saw the struggles and
childishness among some pro-
fessors and the red tape, the insti-
tutional problems and pressures
(remember "publish or per-
ish?") I knew it was not my call-
ing. Later, after having returned
to ministry, I was approached by
the head of a search committee
from a nearby Church.
He knew of my other career
option and that I had chosen
to stay in the ministry in spite
of good opportunities if I left.
Unlike some of my colleagues,
I was not "trapped." I had
worked through my reasons for
staying, my temptations to leave
(or perhaps "doubts" for some)
and came up with a conviction
about where I belonged.
One of my seminary class-
mates wrote to me one day say-
ing, "We always wind up in par-
ish ministry, that must be where
we belong." He too had gone


through testing and searching,
questioning, "doubting" and
finding his answer and God's
answer for him. It was not from
lack of options, or having "fall-
en into" a career, or not having
seriously searched; as was the
case for some reviewed by the
Church search committee.
The committee head knew
that the call had been tried and
tested; affirmed and questions
were put to rest. The "doubts" or
temptations were healthy ones;
leading to affirmations. One of
the ministry journals spoke of
healthy periods of honest re-
evaluation and searching in any
ministry; why not? In fact, the
outcome of ministry, including
the ministry of Mother Theresa
was a continued presence and
witness among those God had
called her to serve. Her life wit-
nesses to the unspoken "now
I know why I am called to do
what I do." There is that apostle
who has his own questions. He
was not around when Jesus first
appeared to the other apostles
and insists on seeing the marks
of the nails from the crucifixion
of Jesus, and putting his finger
in the wound in His side (John
20:24ff). Jesus goes out of His
way to accede to Thomas' de-
mand; the questions are hon-
est ones and the doubt is un-
derstood. He says to Thomas a
week later "Put your finger here;
see my hands. Reach out your
hand and put it in My side. Stop
doubting and believe (v.27)." Je-
sus goes oit of His way to show
Thomas that his faith was not in
vain; the search is over. There is
a difference between cynical de-
nial and honest searching, ques-
tioning, doubtfulness.
The first will lead to a dark
night and the second will lead
to truth and affirmation. I think
that people who never question
(or never admit questioning) or
who never doubt, never really
believe. Those who say they've
never questioned make me won-
der. It says they've never really
searched; never come to the kind
of affirmations made by Peter or
my namesake. Doubting The-
resa? No. Reaffirming Theresa,
searching Theresa, honest The-
resa, devoted Theresa, and one
day "no doubt"- Saint Theresa.


What about the thief on the cross?


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
People who deny that baptism
is necessary are always calling
our attention to the thief on the
cross. They correctly point out
that Jesus said to one of these
thieves, "Verily I say unto thee,
"Today, shalt thou be with me
in paradise" (Luke 23:43). Then
they observe that the thief was
not baptized. Evidently they think
this leaves a loophole and bap-
tism is not essential.
First, let us notice, there is
a very basic misunderstanding
here. The matter of distinguish-
ing between Old and the New
Testament is overlooked. The Old
Testament was a "schoolmaster
to bring us unto Christ" (Gala-
tians 3:24-27) and it lasted until
the death of Christ on the cross
(Colossians 2:13). Now listen to
Hebrews 9:15-17. "And for this
cause he is the mediator of the
New Testament, that by means of
death, for the redemption of the
transgressions that were under

ise of the eternal inheritance. For
where a testament is, there must
also of necessity be the death of
the testator. For a testament is of
force after men are dead: oth-
erwise it is of no strength at all
while the testator liveth."
The New Testament (or cov-
enant) is exactly like a man mak-
ing out his last will and testament.
He makes his will, but it cannot
be enforced until he dies. As long
as he is living he can change the
will as he pleases and do as he
likes with that which he has to
give. But once he dies, the will is
legally in force. This is true with
the Lord Jesus Christ. Before his
death, the New Testament was
not in force. He could do as he
pleased pertaining to that which
he had to give, in this case for-
giveness and eternal life. Thus,
he promised the repentant thief
that he would be with him in
paradise. But once the New Tes-
tament was sealed by his death, it


had to be executed as he planned
it.and as his apostles declared it,
they being his "official" witnesses
(Acts 1:8, 22; John 14:26). After
this New Testament was in force
(following the death and resur-
rection of Jesus), he gave the
great commission to his disciples,
and said, "He that believeth and
is baptized shall be saved." (Mark
16:16). The answer to the ques-
tion of salvation must come from
this side of the cross.
Also, please examine Luke
5:23, 24. Some were accusing
Jesus of blasphemy because he
healed and forgave sins, only God
having such authority. Our Lord
answered them, "What reason ye
in your hearts? Whether is easier
to say, Thy sins be forgiven thee;
or to say, Rise up and walk? But
that ye may know that the Son
of man hath power (authority)
upon earth to forgive sins." Jesus
could forgive sins in any manner
he chose while on earth. But after


He died the testament had to be
carried out as he left it.
Finally, let us add, it would
have been impossible for the
thief at that time, even if he had
the opportunity, to have submit-
ted to the baptism of the New
Testament. Because the New Tes-
tament was not in not only force,
but also listen to this: "Know ye
not, that so many of us as were
baptized into Jesus Christ were
baptized into his death? There-
fore we are buried with him by
baptism into death; that like as
Christ was raised up from the
dead by the glory of the Father,
even so we also should walk in
newness of life" (Romans 6:3, 4).
Now we ask, how could the thief
be buried with Christ by baptism
into his death (and resurrected
with him) when Christ was still
alive and had not been buried?
The baptism of the New Testa-
ment did not and could not yet
apply.

Insect flies to the rescue of native


WEST PALM BEACH To an un-
trained eye it might be mistaken for
an average housefly, but Lixadmon-
tia franki has a greater purpose. This
species of fly is the latest weapon in
a biological battle to control an inva-
sive species of weevil threatening na-
tive plants in Florida's Everglades and
beyond.
The South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, in partnership with the
University of Florida Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences, is releasing
dozens of these tiny flies today as part
of an ongoing study to determine
their effectiveness in controlling the
Mexican bromeliad weevil, Metama-
sius callizona.
Introduced species control is a
key component of the District's en-
vironmental restoration mission,
including the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan (CERP). The
District has invested $442,000 this
year on continuing efforts to reclaim
Florida's native habitat from hostile
invasive plant and insect species, in-
cluding $17,000 on the fly research.
Altogether, Florida has invested close
to $2 billion toward CERP projects
designed to restore, protect and pre-
serve the water resources of central
and southern Florida, with a primary
focus on reviving the nation's unique
Everglades ecosystem.
Invasive species such as melaleu-
ca, old world climbing fern and Aus-
tralian pine, as well as the Mexican
bromeliad weevil, can dramatically
change Florida's, habitat. In moving
to Florida, these species left behind
natural predators that kept them in
check in their native habitat. Scien-
tists look for natural control methods
in the species' home ranges to iden-
tify ways for controlling them here.

challenges are coming from the ap-
plication of cutting-edge science,"

South Florida Water Manage-
ment District is releasing bio-
control flies to fight invasive'
species in the Everglades.
said South Florida Water Manage-
ment District Executive Director Carol
Wehle. "The District is optimistic that
these biological controls will prove to
be another valuable tool in protect-
ing our native species and the Ever-
glades."
Scientists anticipate that this fly will
provide an environmentally friendly
way to control what-bromeliad en-
thusiasts have dubbed the "evil wee-
vil." This invasive, introduced spe-
cies lays its eggs inside the leaves of
several varieties of native bromeliads.
When the weevil larvae emerge, they
feed on the leaves and stems, often
destroying the plant in the process.
The weevil is native to Mexico and
was first sighted in Broward County
in 1989. Today it can be found in 21
Florida counties.
Throughout South Florida, brome-
liads are a significant part of the eco-
system. While contributing to native
plant bio-diversity, bromeliads also
have deep centers that serve as wa-
ter-filled reservoirs, providing homes
and hunting grounds for native frogs,


birds and insects.
Extensive study by University of
Florida scientists has shown that
Lixadmontia franki combats the wee-
vil by laying its eggs inside the wee-
vil's body. Working from within, the
fly maggots then destroy the weevil,
preventing it from harming bromeli-
ads. Rigorous research has demon-
strated that the fly will not impact
agriculture, humans or native plants
and animals.
Scientists hope that the flies re-
leased today will establish sustain-
able, breeding colonies to protect na-
tive bromeliads. They have also been
released at the Big Cypress National
Preserve in Collier County, the En-
chanted Forest Sanctuary in Broward
County and the Lake Rogers Park in
Hillsborough County.
Lixadmontia franki is a species first
scientifically identified in 1993 in the
Honduran mountains. All of the flies
released today were raised at the Uni-
versity of Florida's Norman C. Hay-
slip Biological Control.Research and
Containment Laboratory near Fort
Pierce. Today's fly release and others
in recent months are the culmination
of 17 years of research to ensure the
flies will attack only Mexican bro-
meliad weevil larvae. The permitted
releases required approval by several
government agencies.
"We are grateful to the Florida
Council of Bromeliad Societies and to
the South Florida Water Management
District for their generous support of
this research," said John Capinera,
Ph.D., University of Florida professor
and entomology department chair.
"Officials with the two organizations
have seen the devastation of our na-
tive bromeliads, and they understand
its value to Florida's environment.
We are all working together for the
same goal to save Florida's native
bromeliads from destruction."


Everglades restoration projects help area


WEST PALM BEACH Boosting
South Florida's economic outlook is
successfully proving to be an added
bonus of Everglades restoration as
employment and business opportu-
nities continue to expand with the
South Florida Water Management
District. The District recently strength-
ened its partnerships with workforce
development organizations, com-
munity colleges and non-profits to
train area workers and provide the
goods and services needed to tackle
$1.8 billion in Everglades Restoration
projects.
Two District initiatives, the Small
Business Enterprise program and
Workforce Training Initiative, are
functioning in concert to boost con-
tract prospects for local businesses in
the Palm Beach, Hendry, Lee, Martin
and St. Lucie county areas, while at
the same time increasing the avail-
ability of skilled workers needed to
operate bulldozers, drive dump trucks
and pour concrete. These efforts are-
helping to expand contract prospects
for minority businesses as well.
To date, more than $11 million
has been spent throughout Florida
on subcontractors and direct pur-
chases for restoration projects -- ap-
proximately 75. percent of the total
service dollars -- with more than $5
million spent within the District's 16-
county region. In the immediate Pa-
hokee, South Bay Belle Glade and
Clewiston areas, approximately $2.2
million has been spent to date. One


example is the purchase of vehicles
needed to support work on the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area Reservoir
project near South Bay. More than 30
vehicles have been purchased from
Belle Glade area dealerships.
S"Everglades Restoration projects
are bringing measurable improve-
ment to local economies and the en-
vironment," said District Governing
Board Member Patrick Rooney. "It's a
winning combination."

Workforce Training
Initiative
To increase the availability of
qualified local workers, the District
contracted with the Education Center
of Southwest Florida and with Palm
Beach Community College to train
and certify workers in heavy equip-
ment operation and construction
trades.
The District has invested more
than $1,2 million in partnerships with
these two institutions. To date, their
training programs have produced
131 construction craft graduates and
130 heavy equipment graduates.
Depending on experience and cer-
tifications, construction graduates
can earn $12 to $35 an hour; heavy
equipment graduates can earn $12 to
$22 an hour.
To date, Southern Everglades Res-
toration work has created more than
250 jobs, and generated more than $5
million in payroll to area residents.


Small Business

Enterprise
To expand its vendor lists, the
District has certified more than
1,000 small businesses to work on
Everglades Restoration projects.
Through the Small Business Enter-
prise program,,these businesses are
given additional consideration when
the District solicits project bids and
proposals. The list of certified busi-
nesses is also made.directly available
to large contractors seeking qualified
subcontractors.
The Small Business Enterprise
program is heavily promoted at the
grassroots level through community
resource groups, African-American
and Hispanic builder and trade associ-
ations, ministerial alliances, local gov-
ernments, chambers of commerce
and workforce resource centers.
In addition to the economic bene-
fits, Southern Everglades Restoration
projects will provide more flood con-
trol and water supply options, along
with the potential for public recre-
ational opportunities. Projects now
under way include three massive
aboveground reservoirs designed to
capture and store stormwater runoff,
providing an additional water source
to meet irrigation and urban demands
for water -- after environmental needs
are met. For additional information

Restoration Plan website at www.ev-

Ag program application deadline coming soon


The U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture's Natural Resources Conser-
vation Service has a conservation
program that can help farmers and
ranchers pay for conservation prac-
tices that prevent erosion, improve
water quality, and provide habitat for
wildlife.
The Environmental Quality Incen-
tives Program (EQIP) is a key pro-
gram under the 2002 Farm Bill that
provides federal cost-share funds to
working farms and ranches for con-
servation improvements. The 2008
EQIP application period will remain
open until Nov. 13.
EQIP provides incentive payments
Sand cost-share funds to private agri-


cultural and livestock producers to
implement conservation practices.
The program promotes agricultural
production and environmental qual-
ity as compatible goals. Like all NRCS
programs, participation is voluntary.
The early deadline is a continuing
effort to improve the funding process.
The accelerated program cut-off date
will allow producers time to com-
plete practices during the first years
of their contracts. The earlier appli-
cation deadline date will also help
accommodate field work in prepara-
tion for fall projects.
The accelerated process makes
early contact with the NRCS staff
more important than ever. NRCS


would encourage our farmers and
ranchers to come in and visit with
our local field staff now. We know
that producers that get in early have
more time to resolve certain program
or land eligibility issues.
As with all NRCS programs, EQIP is
a voluntary program that is intended
to yield high quality, productive soils;
clean and abundant water; healthy
plant and animal communities; clean
air; an adequate energy supply; and
working farms and ranchlands.
For more information on the 2008
EQIP program, contact your local
NRCS District Conservationist by call-
ing (863) 674-5700.


Be sure to keep your pets safe this Halloween


COLLEGE STATION Halloween
can be a doggone scary time for pets,
and there's no doubt little Sparky can
get easily spooked.
For pets, Halloween night can turn
into a real nightmare if precautions
aren't taken to protect them, says
Patty Hug, a small animal veterinary
technician in the College of Veteri-
nary Medicine & Biomedical Sciences
at Texas A&M University.
Like most holidays, Halloween
brings extra guests to your doorstep
and into your pet's territory. Pets
accustomed to large crowds of visi-
tors should have little trouble adjust-
ing, says Hug, but other pets may be
frightened by your new (and strange-
ly dressed) guests.
"If you are hosting a Halloween
party, it is best to designate an area
for your pet, such as the bedroom,
where they can constantly be separat-
ed from the guests," says Hug. "The
scent of the owner in the bedroom


will comfort the animal and keep it
from feeling abandoned."
If you don't have a suitable area to
designate as doggie's domain, con-
sider boarding your pet at a separate
location. "Let a trusted friend take
care of your pet for the night or ask
your veterinarian if they offer board-
ing," Hug suggests.
If you prefer to keep your kooky
creatures by your side on All Hol-
low's Eve, be sure to restrain them.
"A leash should keep the pet from
frightening trick-or-treaters and from
running out the door into danger,"
says Hug.
For pets that live outdoors, take
extra precautions to ensure there is a
substantial barrier between them and
potentially dangerous passers-by.
"Keep your animals in a fenced
area with a ceiling, if possible," ad-
vises Hug. "This may keep the ani-
mal from escaping and keep children
from throwing candy -- particularly


chocolate, which is toxic to pets
- into the fenced area."
Even when protected by a fence,
some pets become frightened by the
constant movement and noise that
comes with Halloween. "When in
doubt, move the pet indoors to a safe
area," advises Hug.
That advice counts double for
owners of black cats.
While Hug warns that all pets are
in potentially serious danger on Hal-
loween, black cats have particularly
bad luck on this haunting holiday.
"Some people hold superstitions
about black cats and seek to harm
them as part of a malicious joke,"
warns Hug. "It is up to the owner to
protect pets from increased risk."
In an attempt to protect black cats,
many pet stores refuse to sell them
on or around Halloween. If you have
black kittens to sell or give away, No-
vember might be a better month to
find your feline friends new homes.
