Citizens patrolling the


Glades area with PBSO


Citizens will soon

By Naji Tobias

WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY Wouldn't it be a
good experience to work along-
side the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office?
The sheriff's office is hoping
to give local residents interested
in helping that opportunity.


The PBSO is implementing
a community-policing program
entitled 'Citizens on Patrol'
(COP). It is the volunteer com-
ponent of the sheriff's office. At
4,000 volunteers, it is the largest
of its kind in the United States.
Administrators are hoping
that it will certainly grow once
the COP program begins here
in the Glades area.
' According to Sergeant Sam
Goldstein, the program's pur-
pose is to involve citizens in
making areas in the county
safer, by.serving as the eyes and


ears to the sheriff's office.
Prospective COP volunteers
will go through a background
check and a four-hour class-
room training session to begin
the process, according to the
sergeant.
After those two components
are completed, then citizens will
have on-the-job training with
field training officers followed
by a ride along with the officers
as they patrol. Applicants will be
taught how to use the sheriff's

"Pete" Clemons
Okeechobee
"Pete" Clemons is a famed for-
mer rodeo star, a successful citrus
grower and rancher, and the own-
er/operator of Florida's premier
cattle market, the Okeechobee
Livestock Market. Highly regarded
for his friendliness, honesty, and
genuine desire to help people,
Clemons is considered by many
to be the best-known and best-
loved cattleman in the state.
Clemons was born in 1927
+ and grew up working on cattle
ranches in Osceola and Highlands
counties. His parents, Oscar and
Theressa Bronson Clemons, were
both members of pioneer Florida
cattle families. Clemons paid his
own way through the University
of Florida by working as a rodeo
performer, and in 1950 he gradu-
ated with a bachelor's degree in
agriculture.
Clemons' professional rodeo
career began when he was in high
school and continued until he
was well into his forties. He won
a record nine All Around titles at
the annual Silver Spurs Rodeo in
Kissimmee. In 1949 Clemons was
the Kissimmee Jaycees' repre-
sentative at the National Jaycees
Rodeo in Colorado Springs, and
he stunned the western competi-
tion by entering all six events and
coming away once again with the
All Around title. As a rodeo cow-
boy, Clemons served as an unof-
ficial ambassador for the Florida
cattle industry both nationally
and internationally. He appeared
in televised professional rodeos
on a regular basis and still raises
championship rodeo bulls on his
ranch in Okeechobee.
In 1961 with the help of his
father and another partner, Clem-
ons purchased the Okeechobee
Livestock Market. Under Clemons'
leadership the market became
Florida's largest cattle market and
'one of the largest volume dealers
east of the Mississippi, Today, the
market provides a variety of spe-
cial services, including locating
buyers and sellers of cattle herds
and bringing bull sales from out
of state to local buyers. Clemons
expanded cattle marketing to in-
clude video and internet market:
ing venues and helped start one
of the first internet cattle auctions
in the United States.
"If it's buying or selling cattle in.
Florida, Pete is the man to go to,"


says rancher Sonny Williamson
of Okeechobee. "Ranchers know
that he will help smooth out the
problems for them and get a sale

or purchase of cattle done fair
and honest."
Clemons has always been a
strong supporter of the Florida
beef industry and has worked
hard promoting beef cattle ranch-
ing. In the early 1980s he served
as chairman of the Florida Beef
Council and helped guide the use
of Beef Check-off dollars to raise
consumer awareness about the
healthfulness of beef and to build
beef demand.
For the last 40 years Clemons
has served as a board member
or an officer of the Okeechobee
County Cattlemen's Association.
He was president of the orga-
nization in 1979, and today he
coordinates the group's fundrais-
ing rodeos, which pay for beef
promotion and college scholar-
ships. In recognition of his many
years of service, the Okeechobee
County Cattlemen's Association
recently named him an honorary
director.
Clemons is a strong proponent
of property rights, fair trade, and
reasonable business and land-use
regulations. He is a past president
of the Florida Association of Live-
stock Markets and was active for
many years in the Animal Industry
Technical Cotincil, which works
with the Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Servic-
es on animal health and disease
eradication issues.
Pete Clemons and his wife,
Susanne, live in Okeechobee.
Their sons, Jeff and Todd, have
assumed management roles at
the Okeechobee Livestock Mar-
ket, but Pete remains active in the
business.
"Pete's most valuable trait as
a leader might be a very simple
one," says his friend John Wil-
liams, executive vice president
of Riverside National Bank in
Okeechobee. "He always has
time for every single person.'

Hugh Malakowsky
English
LaBelle
Hugh English spent 35 years
working for A. Duda and Sons,
Inc., one of Florida's agricultural
giants. He started with the com-
pany as a citrus grove manager
and retired as a corporate: vice
president, Through his work at
Duda in the 1960s, English helped
launch southwest Florida's fledg-
ling citrus industry. He conducted
pioneering research and helped
develop production methods
now commonly in use.
English was born in 1936 in
the small town of Alva in Lee
County, where his grandfather
settled in 1876. English grew up
on the family farm, which en-
compassed about 500 acres and
produced citrus, beef cattle, and
vegetables. He began working in
his family's citrus groves as a boy.
English studied animal science at
the University of Florida. During
his student years he was active
in the Block and Bridle Club and
was a member of the Livestock
Judging Team.
In 1965 he went to work at
Duda's new citrus grove in Felda
in Hendry County. In those days
there was little information or re-
search to support production of
citrus on the flatwoods soils of
southwest Florida, so English im-
mediately initiated numerous re-
search demonstrations in cooper-
ation with UF/IFAS research staff
and Extension agents. He ran va-
riety and spacing trials and experi-
mented with seepage irrigation
and water control techniques. As
low-volume, irrigation technology
was developed, English quickly
recognized the savings in water
use and began converting to this
more efficient system.
Just four years into his career
with Duda, English was named
manager of the company's groves
in LaBelle. In 1976 he was pro-
moted to general manager of all
Duda citrus grove operations, and
in 1991 he assumed responsibil-
ity for the company's fresh fruit
packinghouse and frozen con-
centrate plant. At the time of his
retirement in 2001, English was
corporate vice president in charge


of the company's entire Citrus Di-
vision. He was responsible for all
citrus production, packing, and
processing.
His career was demanding,
but he still found time to give
back to his community and his
industry. For many years English
has provided leadership to Flor-
ida agriculture on environmen-
tal, technical, and policy issues.
He was chairman of the Big Cy-
press Basin Board and a member
of the governing board of the
South Florida Water Management
District. While serving on the
Southwest Florida Ag Council, he
helped build legislative support to
construct and staff the University,
of Florida's Southwest Florida Re-
search and Education Center near
Immokalee.
English has always been ac-
tive in the promotion of the citrus
industry. When Central Florida's
citrus industry was nearly de-
stroyed by the freezes of the late
1970s and early 1980s, the indus-
try began a rapid expansion in the
southwestern part of the state.
English helped organize the Gulf
Citrus Growers Association to ad-
vance the citrus industry in this
new location.
In the early 1990s English was
appointed by Governor Lawton
Chiles to a three-year term on the
Florida Citrus Commission. He
was vice chairman of the com-
mission in 1992 and chairman in
1993. During his term he traveled
to Europe and Asia to enhance
export opportunities for Florida
citrus growers.
English was a member of the
Making American Agriculture Pro-
ductive and Profitable (MAAPP)
Committee, created by the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau's board of di-
rectors in 2003 as a two-year ag-
ricultural study group. The group
worked together to come up with
a vision for the future of American
agriculture and to develop policy
recommendations that would
help make 'it productive and
profitable. The MAAPP Commit-
tee Report was published by the
American Farm Bureau in 2006.
In 1979 English's family was
named Farm Family of the Year
by the Hendry County Farm Bu-
reau, and in 1988 English won the
University of Florida's Citrus Club
Man of the Year Award. In 2000
he received the University of Flor-
ida's Alumni of Distinction Award
and was elected to the Citrus Hall
of Fame.
Hugh English and his wife,
Beverly, live in LaBelle. They have
two grown daughters, Katherine
and Caroline, and one grandson.
Fritz Stein Jr.
SBelle Glade
Fritz Stein owns and operates
a 3,300-acre cattle ranch in High-
lands County and a 750-acre sug-
arcane farm in Palm Beach Coun-
ty's Everglades Agricultural Area.
That would be enough to keep
most people busy, but for Stein
it is just the tip of the iceberg. A
mind-boggling array of industry
groups and civic organizations
benefit from his leadership skills.
Through his unselfish dedication
to family, farm, and community,
Stein represents the finest tradi-
tion of the Florida farmer.
Stein is a third-generation Flo-
ridian and a lifelong resident of
Belle Glade. His grandfather, an
Everglades pioneer, raised cattle
and winter vegetables and in-
stilled a love of farming in his chil-
dren and grandchildren. In 1954
Stein earned a degree in agricul-
ture from the University of Florida
and returned to the Belle Glade to
join the family farming business.
In the 1960s he turned his atten-
tion away from winter vegetables
and began growing sugarcane.
Stein knew that if he and his
neighboring growers worked to-
gether and pooled their resources
they could build a state-of-the-art
sugar-processing facility. With
that goal in mind, he helped or-
ganize the Sugar Cane Growers
Cooperative of Florida. The Co-
operative is made up of small
and medium-sized farmers in the
Everglades Agricultural Area who
work together to harvest and
process their sugarcane and mar-
ket the raw sugar. As a founding
member of the Cooperative, Stein
helped maximize the agricultural


potential of.the region and bring
financial stability to many grow-
ers.
Stein has been a tireless sup-
porter of agriculture his entire
life. He is a past chairman of the
Agricultural Stabilization and
Conservation Service, past presi-
dent of the Florida Sugar Cane
League, and past director of the
Palm Beach County Soil and Wa-
ter Conservation District. He cur-
rently serves as a director of the
Florida Molasses Exchange and
the Florida Sugar Marketing and
'Terminal Association. He has
been a member of the Western
Palm Beach County Farm Bureau

for over 50 years.
Stein is an advocate for Flori-
da's farm workers, campaigning
for improved housing, education
and healthcare. For 41 years he
has been an active member of the
board of the Belle Glade Housing
Authority, which provides clean,
affordable, safe housing to this
disadvantaged population. As
chairman of the board, he helped
procure millions of dollars in fed-
eral grants and oversaw five ma-
jor construction projects, growing
Belle Glade's inventory of homes
for agricultural workers to 700
units. Under his direction the
Housing Authority has improved'
the living conditions of thousands
of families in the Glades.
Stein leads by example. As a
governing board member of the
South Florida Water Management
District, he was one of the first
farmers in the Everglades Agri-
cultural Area to begin voluntarily,
testing his own water quality, and
he encouraged' other farmers to
do the same.
Stein's civic contributions are
many. He is a founding trustee of
Glades Day School, a past presi-
dent of the Belle Glade Rotary
Club, a Glades area fundraising
committee member and chair-
man of the Boy Scouts of Amer-'
ica, and a team sponsor for Belle
Glade Little League.
Stein's leadership in his com-
munity and his industry has won
him numerous accolades. In 1982
he received the Belle Glade Citizen
of the Year Award from the Belle
Glade Chamber of Commerce; in
1988 the Chamber of Commerce
named him the Agri-Industrial
Man of the Year; and in 1990 his
family was honored as Farm Fam-
ily of the Year by the Western Palm
Beach County Farm Bureau.
Fritz Stein and his wife, Lois,
live in Belle Glade. They have
six grown children, Sonny, Julie,
Robert, Stewart, Michael, and
Tim, and eight grandchildren.

Alto Alfred Straughn
Waldo
Dr. Alto Straughn's career in
agricultural research, education,
and commercial farming spans
more than 50 years and has ben-
efited both Florida agriculture and
consumers. He is among Florida's
most progressive watermelon
farmers, and his work with south-
ern high bush blueberries helped
launch a $40 million-a-year indus-
try.
Born in 1934 in Walton County,
Straughn grew up farming, hunt-
ing and fishing. He was active in
4-H and Future Farmers of Ameri-
ca. During his student years at the
University of Florida, he was well
known for his strong work ethic
and his keen interest in research
and learning. He lived in a room
at the Livestock Pavilion, worked
for the Department of Animal
Sciences, was a member of the
Livestock Judging Team, and did
sheep research on the weekends.
He graduated with a master's de-
gree in animal science.
In 1959 Straughn began work-
ing as a UF/IFAS Extension agent
in Marion County. Three years
later, with the aid of a Kellogg Fel-
lowship, he went to the University
of Wisconsin, where he complet-
ed a doctoral degree in Extension
administration in 1963.
Returning to Florida and the
Extension Service, Straughn rose
rapidly through the administrative
ranks. After serving as assistant
director, he became director of
program evaluation and organi-
zational development in 1971. As
one of the agency's key adminis-
trative leaders, he helped develop
statewide planning and reporting

systems and implement the coun-
ty program review system. He pi-
oneered the use of computers to
enhance Extension's response to
client needs.
At the same time he was
working for the Extension Ser-
vice, Straughn was developing
successful beef cattle, blueberry,
watermelon, and timber farming
operations-enterprises that now
cover over 2,000 acres around
Gainesville. He quickly gained
a reputation as one of Florida's
most innovative growers, demon-
strating again and again his abil-
ity to adjust to rapidly changing
markets.
Straughn's leadership and in-
novation in blueberry production
have been crucial to the success
of Florida's blueberry industry.
He now produces about one-third
of all the blueberries in Florida,
and he has worked closely with
UF/IFAS researchers to conduct
blueberry variety trials and dem-
onstrate new production technol-
ogies at his farms. Leading blue-
berry researcher Paul Lyrene says
Straughn has been indispensable
to the UF/IFAS blueberry research
program and estimates the value
of Straughn's support over the
past 15 years at almost a million
dollars.
In the 1980s, Straughn initiated
the Florida blueberry industry's
move away from rabbiteye variet-
ies toward the more-productive
southern high bush varieties and
showed that these varieties could
be grown profitably on a large
scale. He helped build markets for
Florida blueberries where none
had existed. Straughn has been
an innovator in freeze protection
methods, pollination techniques,
harvesting methods, and pack-
ing and distributing He pioneered
growing blueberries in pine-bark
beds under plastic mulch and
tunnels, using drip irrigation and
fertigation. Many of the practices
now commonly used by growers
in Florida were first shown to be
superior on Straughn's blueberry
farms.


Straughn has been an innova-
tor for the Florida watermelon
industry, too. Twenty years ago
he was the first in North Florida
to grow and market seedless
watermelons on a large scale. In
addition, he was an early adopter
of new watermelon production
technologies, including polyeth-
ylene mulch and drip irrigation.
UF/IFAS research results on new
technologies were more readily
transferred to the Florida water-
melon industry because Straughn
adopted these technologies and
assisted the Extension Service in
educating his fellow watermelon
producers about their benefits.
Straughn is a strong supporter of
the annual UF Extension Water-
melon Institute, where the latest
research results and recommen-
dations are presented to water-
melon producers from all over
the Southeast.
Straughn is generous with his
knowledge and his time, selfless-
ly sharing his expertise with other
growers. He is an active member
of the Florida Farm Bureau, the
Michigan Blueberry Growers As-
sociation, the National Watermel-
on Promotion Board, the North
American Blueberry Council,
and the Florida Blueberry Grow-
ers Association. He has provided
financial support for more than
a dozen graduate students in the
University of Florida's College of
Agricultural and Life Sciences and
has initiated endowment pro-
grams to provide financial sup-
port for Extension 4-H faculty and
for the professional improvement

Hickory Hammock Equestrian Center to open soon


Trail rides, hikes and
swamp buggy rides
set for Oct. 27 event

FLORIDA The South Florida
Water Management District will
hold a grand opening celebration
for the Hickory Hammock Eques-
trian Center on Saturday, October
27 beginning at 9 a.m. The public
is cordially invited to attend and
celebrate completion of the new
equestrian center, as well enjoy
a variety of recreational activities
on the property.
The equestrian center has been
developed in partnership with
the Florida Cracker Trail Associa-
tion, an equestrian group whose
members have spent many hours
marking trails and improving
the area for public use. Hickory
Hammock Equestrian Center has
stalls, picnic shelters, fire rings
and grills, a non-potable water
well with hand pump, two com-
posting toilets and night lighting,


along with primitive campsites for
horseback riders and others who
have horse rigs or camp trailers.
Tent campers are also welcome.
Marked equestrian trails, interior
dirt roads and fire breaks provide
riders with access to more than
10 miles of riding trails.
The Hickory
Hammock Site
This 4,470-acre property is
not just for horse enthusiasts.
The Florida Trail Association, a
statewide group of avid hikers,
has spent many volunteer hours
marking hiking trails through the
area. A section of the Florida Na-
tional Scenic Trail winds for 11
miles through Hickory Hammock
and through two adjacent public
use areas to the north, Bluff Ham-
mock and Boney Marsh.
Several primitive campsites
along the trail beckon hikers for
an overnight stay. Three miles
north of Hickory Hammock, a 25-
foot-high bridge rewards visitors


with a grand view of the gentle
meanders and marshes of the
restored Kissimmee River. Wind-
ing north through Boney Marsh,
the trail is fringed with live oaks,
palms, bay and holly trees on the
edge of the Kissimmee flood-
plain. At certain times, hikers can
continue north through the Avon
Park Air Force Range.
Bicycling enthusiasts can en-
joy riding on a two-mile section
of the old Sebring Grade on the
south half of Hickory Hammock.
Now grassed and canopied by
overhanging tree limbs, the grade
once connected Sebring and Bas-
inger before U.S. Hwy. 98 was
built in 1949. You can also enjoy
bike riding on the interior "woods
road," an old ranch trail along the
hammocks.
Grand opening
The public Ts encouraged
to attend the October 27 grand
opening to become familiar with
Hickory Hammock's many recre-
ational opportunities. Those with


horses are welcome to join the
morning trail ride guided by ex-
perienced riders from the Florida
Cracker Trail Association. A guid-
ed hike will be led in the morning
by members of the Florida Trail
Association.
Following the trail events, there
will be a short ceremony with
South Florida Governing Board
Chair Eric Buermann and rep-
resentatives from the volunteer
organizations. Pat's Barbecue,
of Lake Placid, will be providing
lunch for purchase during the
day, including hamburgers, hot
dogs, barbecue, water and soft
drinks. Following lunch, swamp
buggy rides will be available for
those who would like to see the
equestrian trail.
Location
The Hickory Hammock
Equestrian Center is located at
the end of McArthur Road, four
miles north of the main Hickory
Hammock trailhead. The main
trailhead at Hickory Hammock is


eight miles southeast of Lorida,
and about one-half mile north-
west of the Istokpoga Canal (18
miles south of Sebring and 33
miles north of Okeechobee on
U.S. Hwy. 98.)


For additional information
about the ceremony or about this
project, please phone the SFW-
MD Okeechobee Service Center
at (863) 462-5260 or (800) 250-
4200.

Everglades restoration projects progress


WEST PALM BEACH Boost-
ing South Florida's economic
outlook is successfully proving to
be an added bonus of Everglades
restoration as employment and
business opportunities continue
to expand with the South Florida
Water Management District. The
District recently strengthened its
partnerships with workforce de-
velopment 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 pro-
gram and Workforce Training Ini-
tiative, are functioning in concert
to boost contract prospects for lo-
cal businesses in the Palm Beach,
Hendry, Lee, Martin and St. Lucie
county areas, while at the same
time increasing the availability of
skilled workers needed to oper-
ate 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 Flor-
ida on subcontractors and direct
purchases for restoration projects
-- approximately 75 percent of the
total service dollars -with more
than $5 million spent within the
District's 16-county region. In the
immediate Pahokee, 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 Everglades
Agricultural Area Reservoir project
near South Bay. More than 30 ve-
hicles have been purchased from
Belle Glade area dealerships.
"Everglades Restoration proj-
ects are bringing measurable im-
provement to local economies
and the environment," said Dis-
trict Governing Board Member
Patrick Rooney. "It's a winning
combination."
Workforce Training
Initiative
To increase the availability of
qualified local workers, the Dis-
trict contracted with the Educa-
tion Center of Southwest Florida
and with Palm Beach Community


College to train and certify work-
ers in heavy equipment 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 equip-
ment graduates. Depending on
experience and certifications,
construction graduates can earn
$12 to $35 an hour; heavy equip-
ment graduates can earn $12 to
$22 an hour.
To date, Southern Everglades
Restoration work has created
more than 250 jobs, and generat-
ed 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 proj-
ects. Through the Small Business
Enterprise program, these busi-
nesses are given additional con-
sideration when the District solic-
its project bids and proposals. The


list of certified businesses is also
made directly available to large
contractors seeking qualified sub-
contractors.
The Small Business Enterprise
program is heavily promoted at
the grassroots level through com-
munity resource groups, African-
American and Hispanic builder
and trade associations, ministe-
rial alliances, local governments,
chambers of commerce and
workforce resource centers.
In addition to the economic
benefits, Southern Everglades
Restoration projects will provide
more flood control and water
supply options, along with the
potential for public recreational
opportunities. Projects now un-
der 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
about Everglades Restoration,
please visit the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan web-
site at www.evergladesplan.org.

State to develop disaster preparedness


OWNER ORDERED


TALLAHASSEE State and lo-
cal government agencies through-
out Florida will be better prepared
for emergencies thanks to $2.6
million recently awarded to the
national Council of State Archivists
(CoSA) by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency (FEMA).
The funding for the national initia-
tive will enable the State Library
and Archives of Florida to provide
critical training and services to
state and local government agen-
cies throughout Florida.
When state and local govern-
ments are faced with natural or
manmade disasters, certain re-
cords help them respond to and
recover from the emergency. The
Intergovernmental Preparedness
for Essential Records (IPER) proj-
ect will develop workshops for
delivery nationwide designed to
teach state and local governments
how to identify and protect their
most essential records and recov-
er those damaged by disasters.
"The benefit to Florida will be
immense," said Kurt S. Brown-
ing, Secretary of State. "Florida is


prone to hurricanes, tornadoes,
floods, wildfires and any one of
these can threaten lives or de-
stroy the history of a community.
I look forward to our staff work-
ing with their colleagues within
the region and around the coun-
try to ensure that the records of
government so essential to our
lives are protected."
The IPER initiative will develop
a national curriculum and create
Web-based seminars, which will
be customized to meet specific
needs and concerns at the state
and local levels. A team from
Florida will add guidance and re-
sources specific to our state and
then deliver the training to state
and local government agencies
statewide. The Florida team will
be coordinated by the state ar-
chives and records management
program and include representa-
tives from the State Emergency
Management Office, information
technology, and local govern-
ments. The regional offices of the
National Archives and Records
Administration (NARA) and the


Federal Emergency Management
Agency in Atlanta will actively
support this effort.
Outlining the impact the pro-
gram will have, Rex Wamsley,
director of FEMA's national Con-
tinuity of Operations Division,
noted that the "development of
common training for use in each
of the states will enhance the po-
tential for inter-governmental co-
operation throughout the nation.
FEMA's national and regional of-
fices have been working actively
with the National Archives and
state archives for the last two
years to protect essential records.
We want to ensure that govern-
ments at all levels can recover
and resume operations quickly
following a natural disaster or
other emergency. Records are key
to that process. The IPER project
will allow us to reach into every
county, city, and village nation-
wide, giving officials the informa-
tion they need to protect essential
records in time of crisis."

Florida restores wetlands in Kissimmee


In northwestern Okeechobee
County, the Florida State Park Ser-
vice recently completed.a restora-
tion project at Seven Mile Slough,
located in.the state's Kissimmee
Prairie Preserve State Park. The
47,000-acre Kissimmee Prairie
Ecosystem Restoration Project,
composed of public and private
lands, was born out of a desire
by the park staff and adjacent
landowners to help solve water
resource problems that El Nifio's
extreme wet and dry periods had
compounded. The landowners
joined with the South Florida
Water Management District and


obtained a $997,000 grant from
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Ser-
vice. More than $600,000 of those
funds was spent entirely on resto-
ration in the state park.
The goal of the project was to
use an ecosystem management
approach to restore wetlands, to
enhance the wetlands, and en-
hance the dry prairie found in the
geographic area known as the
Kissimmee Prairie Ecosystem. A
secondary benefit was the cre-
ation of more natural water stor-
age areas. Before acquisition by
the state, the Kissimmee Prairie
Preserve State Park property had


been used for agriculture. Past
landowners had installed at least
76 miles of drainage ditches and
altered the land surface to sup-
port vegetable crops. When the
project was completed, contrac-
tors had removed nearly 89 mil-
lion cubic feet of dirt and filled all
76 miles of drainage ditches. The
restored area has rebounded and
now provides tremendously im-
proved wetland and dry prairie
habitats for waterfowl, migratory
birds, fish, and wildlife. For more
information, see www.dep.state.

There is a lot of confusion

buying right now and First Bank
would like to help clear up some

and discuss financing options",
said Tuesday Tritt, Vice President

Answers to small business questions given


By Sean Moore
Over the next several weeks I
am going to try and answer some
of the most commonly asked
question of the Small Business
Development Center, and provide
updates that are noteworthy for
those of you that already are, or
that may soon be small business
owners. Let's get started!
Can I get a grant to start my
small business? Hands down this
is the most asked question of any
of our counselors in any of the
thirty SBDC's in Florida and the
hundreds across the country. To
make a long answer short, no


there's not much free money out
there. Trust me, wie see that guy
on TV with the question marks all
over his jacket yelling and scream-
ing about how you can start, a
combination taxidermy and hair
salon shop in your own home,
.but you have to remember-he is
trying to sell books. While there
are specialized programs out
there to help, for the day to day
person like you or me there is a
good chance, no- a great chance
that money is just a dream. There
are many ways to fund your busi-
ness though and we are more.
than happy to help you figure
those out.


What's the best way to have
a successful small business? This
is one of those questions that has
no set answer. There is no golden
rule, crystal ball, or secret of life
type advice I can give here. Small
business success depends upon
doing a lot of things well, not just
one thing exceptionally, and it
also varies business to business. I
know that is a less than in depth
answer, but unfortunately I do not
have the space to go over a top
ten list but are always happy to set
up private appointments. There is
a lot of great advice that we can
pass along (free of charge!) and
discussing these items face to


face allows for confidential infor-
mation to be exchanged, well...
confidentially! The SBDC is here
to help potential business owners
reach the dream of ownership,
and to help those in business
reach the potential that awaits
them, so let us help!
Sean Moore is a Certified
Business Analyst for the Small
Business Development Center
at Florida Gulf Coast University
in Ft. Myers. He covers Hendry
and Glades County for the SBDC

State minimum wage increases to come in January


Florida's minimum wage is
$6.79 per hour, effective January
1, 2008. This is up from the $6.67
per hour minimum wage in 2007.
On Nov. 2, 2004, Florida voters
approved a constitutional amend-
ment which created Florida's
minimum wage. The minimum
wage applies to all employees
in the state who are covered by
the federal minimum wage. Flor-
ida law requires the Agency for
Workforce Innovation to calcu-
late a new minimum wage each
year and publish the new mini-
mum wage on Jan. 1. The cur-
rent minimum wage represents a
1.85 percent change in the federal
consumer price ifidex for urban
wage earners and clerical work-
ers in the South Region for the
12-month period prior to Sept. 1,
2007. Florida's minimum wage is
$.94 more than the current federal
minimum wage of $5.85.


In deciding whether the fed-
eral or state minimum wage
applies, federal law directs that
businesses must pay the higher
of the two. The Florida minimum
wage will prevail over the federal
rate until such time as the federal
minimum wage becomes higher
than the state rate.
Employers must pay their
employees the hourly state mini-
mum wage for all hours worked
in Florida. The definitions of "em-
ployer," "employee" and "wage"
for state purposes are the same
as those established under the
federal Fair Labor Standards Act
(FLSA). Employers of "tipped
employees" who meet eligibil-
ity requirements for the tip credit
under the FLSA may count tips
actually received as wages under
the FLSA. However, the employer
must pay "tipped employees" a
direct wage. The direct wage is

L ------------------------i


calculated as equal to the mini-
mum wage ($6.79) minus the
2003 tip credit ($3.02), or a direct
hourly wage of $3.77 as of Janu-
ary 1,2008.
Employees who are not paid
the minimum wage may bring a
civil action against the employer
or any person violating Florida's
minimum wage law. The state at-
torney general may also bring an
enforcement action to enforce the
minimum wage. FLSA informa-
tion and compliance assistance
can be found at: http://www.dol.
gov/dol/compliance/comp-flsa.
htm.
Florida Statutes require em-
ployers who must pay their em-
ployees the Florida minimum
wage to post a minimum wage
notice in a conspicuous and ac-
cessible place in each establish-
ment where these employees
work. This poster requirement is


in addition to the federal require-
ment to post a notice of the fed-
eral minimum wage. Florida's
minimum wage poster is avail-
able for downloading in English
and Spanish from the Agency for
Workforce Innovation's website
at: http://www.floridajobs.org/re-
sources/fl_min_wage.html. The
federal poster can be download-
ed from the U.S. Department of
Labor website at: http://www.dol.
gov/esa/regs/compliance/posters/
flsa.htm.
On May 25, 2007, President
George W. Bush signed legislation
increasing the federal minimum
wage. The new federal minimum
wage increases in a three-step
process as follows:
$5.85 July 24, 2007
$6.55 July 24, 2008
$7.25 July 24, 2009

Amateur Radio Club
On Saturday, Oct. 6, a Sec-
tion Emergency Test was held
throughout the South Florida
region to determine if amateur
radio communications would be
"up and running" in the event of
an emergency..This annual test,
held across the country during
the month of October, places the
amateur radio community on the
air to check if communications
would be possible in the event
of a hurricane or other disaster.
This year, the regional Net Control
Operator was Rev. Thom Street,
N5KFR of Moore Haven. Thom
reported that twenty stations
checked into this net from 8 a.m.
until noon and the entire south
Florida area was represented.
Communications were on the
40 and 75 meter amateur bands;



^SKS.


suggesting that daytime and night
time operations would be possi-
ble if an emergency warranted it.
There were also contacts
made to neighboring counties on
the 2-meter FM band; frequencies
that have a more limited range,
but the test shows them to be re-
liable in our vicinity in case they
are needed. This latter, county-to-
county transmission and recep-
tion is on frequencies shared in
the most popular of the frequen-
cies designated for amateur use;
giving' the likelihood that more
volunteer communicators would
be available to serve the people of
Hendry, Glades and the surround-
ing counties if needed. All in all,
the test was regarded as success-
ful and shows that our rural coun-
ties are among the leaders when
it comes to preparedness for com-
munications emergencies. Thanks
to all who participated.

Florida's warm, wet, weather is an ideal climate for germs
and insect pests, like ticks. Pets can suffer needlessly if own-
ers are not aware of the solutions, all of which are readily
available.


Pet threats: in Florida the bugs don't die


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Many people who move out to
the country do so to have more
room and a better environment
for a growing family and maybe
pets for the children or for them-
selves. Room to "roam" is just as
appealing to man's best friend and
Kitty. At the same time, pets face
some of the same pitfalls people
do in Florida's warm weather and
endless sunshine.
Rabies.is a virus disease that
can be transmitted from animal
to animal or animals to people.
Every Florida County has its own
regulations about rabies shots for
cats and dogs and that informa-
tion is available from your animal
control office. In some areas, ra-
bies shots are recommended for
horses, too. Vaccination is the
only way of keeping your pets
from contracting 1he disease and
perhaps passing it on to you or
your children. Low-cost shots are
available. Check with your Animal
Control Office.
Canine distemper is another
threat to dog health in Florida,
with the virus present throughout
the year. Distemper can be trans-
mitted through the air. Cough


runny nose, then vomiting and di-
arrhea and, in the case of puppies
and older dogs, death can result.
Again, vaccination when puppies
are about four months old will.
protect your dog. Treatment is
not always successful. Check with
your vet for vaccination recom-
mendations.
Parvovirus is a very infections
and very contagious dog disease
in Florida that has been reported
in most communities. It is trans-
mitted in fecal waste and can be
carried on the dogs, or owners,
feet. Remember your pooper-
scooper if you love your dog. The
disease attacks the gastrointestinal
tract with vomiting and diarrhea,
high fever and, if left untreated,
death follows in two to three days.
Again, vaccination is a silver bullet
against this disease.
SInternal parasites are an un-
pleasant fact in Florida. It is always
warm: nothing dies. Parasites
affecting dogs and cats include
roundworms, hookworms, whip-
worms and tapeworms. A veteri-
narian can look at a stool sample
under a microscope, see what
types of worms are there, and
prescribe appropriate medicine.
The medicines needed for many


types of worms can be very toxic
to pets and pet owners can kill a
pet, intending -only to keep the
pet healthy. Better to check with
the vet. Tapeworm segments can
often be seen by pet owners as
brownish rains of rice on or near
the pet's anus or hair nearby.
Tapeworms use fleas as an inter-
mediate host, so flea control is im-
portant to tapeworm treatment.
People often get discouraged
as their pets get reinfected after
treatment. The pet's environment
still harbors the parasites, expos-
ing the pet again and again to
Florida parasites. Washing of bed-
ding and sanitizing pet areas is
part of the treatment.
No discussion of pet health in
Florida would be complete with-
out talking about fleas, ticks and
lice. Remember, in Florida the
bugs do not die! Bugs are always
here.
Fleas, in addition to carrying
disease, are pure misery for the
infected animal. Some cats and
dogs are allergic to flea bites. That
adds allergic skin reactions to the
misery of bites and little buggy
feet crawling over their skin. Even
after the pet and the pet environ-
ment are flea-free, the intense
itching can last a long time. A vet-
erinarian's help is needed here.
Start your flea control war
by using an insecticide for fleas
both on the pet and on the pet's
environment. This can mean the
whole house. Rugs, drapes under
appliances, anywhere the pet or
, . . % :'


you have been. Fleas are great
hitchhikers, catching a ride on
shoes, trousers or pet hair. Under
cushions on the bed, etc.
Next, shampoo or dip the
animal or use one of the spray or
foam products available for fleas.
If you are treating a cat, be sure the
product is safe for cats. Different
products have to be used, since
the cat will lick its fur clean and
ingest the pesticide. Ditto puppies
and kittens. Read the label.
Next, check with the vet. To-
day there are products that can,
be given orally 'or dabbed on
your pet's skin that give long-term
protection by absorbing into the
bloodstream, which gives any
biting bug a dose of insecticide
and killing it. Some products also
keep fleas from reproducing, giv-
ing even better protection. The
amount you use is determined
by the pet's weight, so READ THE
LABEL.
Next week we will explore
some more and talk about inter-
nal and external problems horse
owners must care for in Florida.

Crash
Continued From Page 1
"I had calls coming in and was
told that it was a bus but when
I checked with the sheriff's of-
fice, it was found to be a van that
crashed into the sugar cane field,"
Ms. Barbera said.
Well, it actually was neither,
according to Lieutenant Tim Frith,
the public affairs officer of the
Florida Highway Patrol.
"It was a makeshift mechani-
cal vehicle that's not used for
transportation of school children,"
Lt. Frith said. "Originally, it was a
bus but had been converted into a
maintenance vehicle."
According to a release by the'
highway patrol, Diosny Serrano
Cordero, a 24-year-old from Hia-
leah, was driving his 1994 Mack
truck westbound on S.R. 80.
Mr. Corder6 was traveling in
the right lane, following Ray Mo-
bley, a 44-year-old man from Belle
Glade, who was driving the make-
shift maintenance vehicle.
The report said that Mr. Corde-
ro was distracted and slammed his
brakes, swerving into the left lane
and colliding with the left rear side
of Mr. Mobley's vehicle.
Mr. Mobley's vehicle over-
turned into the nearby sugar cane
fields.
Mr. Mobley suffered minor in-
juries and was flown by helicop-
ter to the trauma center at Palms
West Hospital.
Officials said that charges are
pending The investigation of this
case is ongoing at this time.

radio properly and how to patrol
their designated areas effectively.
As soon as the applicant is "on
board," he/she will be evaluated
daily by a training officer. This is
done to make sure the citizen is
progressing in the training pro-
cess, according to Sgt. Goldstein.
"We're trying to recruit mem-
bers in the Glades area," Sgt.
Goldstein said. "We would like
to get the clergy of churches and
their members and once we get
the membership set, we will start
giving out patrol vehicles to patrol
certain areas."
There will be COP units in a
form of a chain of command just
like the sheriff's office. Supervised
by a PBSO lieutenant, the units will
have captains, lieutenants and ser-
geant to assist the real law enforced
ment officers in fighting crime.
Citizens can pick their own
shifts, whether it is in the daytime
or at night.
Make no mistake, officials said,
the observers will have absolutely
no authority or power in law en-
forcement. They are just merely a
helping hand to the deputies that
have such authorization.
The program is not just for
people who are going to serve as
assistants to the deputies. Once.
proper training is received, ob-
servers could serve as civilian em-
ployees, working at the sheriff's
substation internally.
District Five Commander Ro-
lando Silva is a big believer in the
program's potential for success.
"We can't do everything
alone," Captain Silva said. "We
need the help of the community
to be as effective as possible."
There is currently no set date
for when the COP program will
actually begin in the Glades area,
but the sheriff's office is currently
taking applications. They can be
picked up at the city of Belle Glade
or the District 13 sheriff's office
sub station in Belle Glade.
For more information, you
could contact the sheriff's office
at (561) 996-1676.

least a month before the .actual
process of selecting the replace-
ment begins.
The mayor and Annette Parch-
ment, the city's human resource
director, worked on the job de-
scription and qualifications for the
city's most important job. They're
hoping to have the right person in
place to move the city forward,
according to Mayor Anthony.
Once the applications come in,
city hall will create a shortlist of
the candidates who best meet the
city's criteria before city commis-
sioners make a final determina-
tion at a future meeting.
The city does not have any ap-
plications on file yet.
The length of the process will
be determined, according to Ms.
Parchment, largely on the number
of applications the city receives in
response to the advertisements.
Mayor Anthony is adamant that
the process won't be a long one.
"It's time that we hire a city
manager who will provide lead-
ership to our employees and ser-
vices to our citizens," the mayor

at the chamber banquet was, of
course, the winners for Citizen of
the Year and Agri-Industrial Citi-
zen of the Year.
The 2007 Citizen of the Year
went to Ellen Smith, a physical ed-
ucation teacher at Gove Elemen-
tary School. The most prestigious
plaque of the night was presented
by Sonja Lutz, the 2003 Citizen of
the Year.
Ms. Smith, who has taught at
Gove Elementary School for 21
years, is recognized by the com-
munity as a brain gym expert.
With that in mind, her students
over the years have been able to
train both physically and mentally
by making connections between
the body and the brain.
In essence, Ms. Smith's stu-
dents have achieved new levels of
excellence in their lives as a result
of being able to be more focused
and organized with their daily ac-
tivities.
Ms. Smith is most known for
coordinating the school's health


wellness grant last year, which
supports the community health
fair. In fact, the wellness fair held
.less than two weeks ago was an
abundantly successful event.
Just ask anyone who attended
the health fair.
Among many other achieve-
ments in the community, Ms.
Smith has been the voice of the
Glades area when it comes to
fighting obesity. She was recently
selected to be on the Governor's
Task Force to Fight Obesity.
When coming up to accept
this honor, Ms. Smith said she
was speechless but did briefly
comment on being the citizen of
the year.
"First I thought I was too young
to get this award but I thank ev-
eryone for this honor," Ms. Smith
said. "My heart is here in the
Glades area."
The Agri-Industrial Citizen of
the Year went to Israel Baez, Jr.
Mr. Baez, Jr. was presented with
this honor by Michael Miller.
"Our Agri-Industrial Citizen of
the Year is very active professional-
ly and in the community," Mr. Mill-
er said. "He is what I call a go-to
guy. When hurricanes devastated


our communities, he was there to
help. When his community needs
him, even if it was a personal or
family tragedy, he was there to
help. He doesn't talk much he
just gets the job.done."
Mr. Baez, Jr. was born in Cuba
in 1954 and'his family was able to
find a way to escape to freedom in
the United States. He has a Belle
Glade mainstay since 1964.
Among other accomplish-
ments, he was named the man-
ager of employee relations for
A. Duda and Sons, which has
operations in Florida, Texas and
California. In 1997, Mr. Baez, Jr.
was named the director of human
resources of the Okeelanta Sugar
Corporation.
Also, Mr. Baez, Jr. was a past
president of the Belle Glade
Chamber of Commerce and a
past director of the Black Gold Ju-
bilee Commiltee
The building of the world's
largest salad was coordinated dur-
ing his time as the Jubilee Com-
mittee director.
"My wife had me fooled, tell-
ing me that Israel III was going to
get an award," Mr. Baez, Jr. said,
with a laugh. "Surprisingly, it is


now 44 years that our family has
been in the. country. I would not
be where I'm at today if it wasn't
for my dad's courage. He is a very
family-oriented, hard-working
and dedicated individual who has
strong values. He helped our fam-
ily escape Cuba."
Former Captain John Russ was
presented with the 2007 Sheriff's
Officer of the Year by PBSO Dis-
trict 13 Captain Simon Barnes.
Mr. Russ was in for a big surprise
- he was also presented with a
commemorative lifetime sheriff's
badge, a specially made retire-
ment plaque from the sheriff's of-
fice and a commemorative clock.
"This award belongs to the
people of the Glades," Mr. Russ
said. "There have been a lot of
people who have helped me in
my career. I've been successful
because of your help. I will cherish
this honor and keep it forever."
The Correctional Officer of the
Year went to K-9 Correctional Of-
ficer'Danny O'Neal, Jr., while the
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue
Award was shared by Lieuten-
ants Richard Christmas and Frank
Cote.

Raiders cruise to easy win over Mavericks


Glades Central
scores six offensive
touchdowns

By Naji Tobias
Independent Newspapers
BELLE GLADE Call this game
a confidence booster for Glades
Central.
The Raiders lookedlike a team
that was ready to have some fun
on Saturday afternoon.
They certainly enjoyed them-
selves in a game that was resched-
uled due, to lightning on Friday
night. -
In a contest that featured
touchdowns on offense, defense
and special teams, Glades, Central
destroyed the Archbishop McCar-
thy Mavericks, 70-0.
Of the 10 touchdowns Glades
Central scored, two of them were
on special teams. The first touch-
down of the game came on a
Mavericks blocked punt by Raid-
ers junior Samuel Brown, with
senior Kardell Dunning taking the
ball into the end zone -- a 22-yard
blocked punt return for a touch-
down.
The Raiders scored their first
touchdown with less than two
minutes into the game.
The next Glades Central score
came on a 21-yard touchdown
run by junior Rantavious Wooten.
The Raiders first offensive series
took only-four plays in less than
two minutes.


INI/Naji Tobias
On the first play of the second half, Glades Central sophomore wide receiver Fred Pickett,
who wears 83, completes a 79-yard reception from junior Rantavious Wooten. The play was
a part of a two-play, 90 yard drive, set up the first touchdown of the season for junior running
back Antonio McCloude.


Almost immediately after Woo-
ten's score that put Glades Central
up 14-0, the defense stepped up
with a touchdown on its own
after junior Antavious Baldwin
picked off Mavericks senior quar-
terback Carlos Gonzalez for a 21-
yard touchdown with 6:53 left in
the first.
On the Raiders next offensive
possession, it took only two plays
for Wooten to score another rush-


ing touchdown this time for 55
yards.
At the very end of the first quar-
ter, the Raiders would be up 35-0
after a 24-yard touchdown run by
sophomore running back Antwon
Chisolm. That drive also took only
two plays.
More touchdowns would
come in the second quarter from
the Raiders, with Wooten scor-
ing his third rushing touchdown


of the game with 6:02 left in the
first half. The score was a 2-yard
run on fourth and goal. The play
was capped by a six-play, 60-yard
drive.
The first half ended with the
Raiders second touchdown on
special teams. Glades Central was
up 49-0 after senior DeAngelo Tol-
bert blocked a Mavericks punt and
senior Russell Lewis recovered the
ball for a 6-yard score.


Glades Central would score
three more times in the game.
The first second half score came
from a beautifully crafted, two-
play, 90-yard drive beginning with
an 79-yard reception from Woo-
ten to sophomore wide receiver
Fred Pickett and ending with an
11-yard touchdown run by junior
running back Antonio McClure. It'
was McClure's first score of the
season.
On Kentavious McCoy's only
pass of the game, he connected
with senior wider receiver Eddie
Poole for a 48-yard touchdown on
only one play.
The game ended with a 77-yard
interception return for a touch-
down by senior Da'Coby Wooten.
"We needed a game that we
could play fast," Raiders head
coach Willie Snead said of the
fast-paced contest. "I told Rantavi-
ous that we needed to pick up the
tempo for the second half of the
season. We got a young group of
kids and it was good to see them
have fun."
Glades Central (2-0, District
15-3A and 7-0 overall) scored six
offensive touchdowns orqonly 17
plays, did not have to punt, com-
mitted no turnovers, racked up
352 total yards and had nine first

downs.
The Raiders travel to Pembroke
Pines Charter School tomorrow
night in what should be another
easy win for them.

Nationally-ranked Blue Devils win District 7-2B


Glades Day Gators
also win big in
district game

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Was there ever a
doubt that the Pahokee Blue Devw
ils would win all of their district
games?
Not in the least bit, just ask the
team or its fans.
The Blue Devils, who were.
playing a rescheduled game on
Monday afternoon due to light-
ning on Friday night, had their
best all-around game of the sea-
son so far in defeating the John
Carroll Golden Rams, 47-0.
The victory means that Paho-
kee finished 3-0 in District 7-2B.
The Blue Devils could call them-
selves district champions now.
"We have reached our goal by
winning our district," Blue Dev-
ils head coach Blaze Thompson
said. "Our next goal is to win the
Muck Bowl and go undefeated in


the regular season. Ultimately, we
want to run the table and become
state champions this year."
The Glades Central Raiders
should take note of that come the
Nov. 9 Muck Bowl game.
In this contest, the Blue Devils
scored seven touchdowns on 35
total offensive plays for the game
- they actually scored on 20 per-
cent of their touches.
John Carroll never had a
chance and the game was pretty
much over in the second quarter.
On Pahokee's opening drive,
senior quarterback Anthony Shep-
pard, who returned to the lineup
after an injury to his hand forced
him out of action for a couple of
games, ended a nine-play drive
with a 20-yard touchdown pass to
junior Nu'Keese Richardson with
4:18 left in the first quarter. It was
Richardson's only reception of the
game.
Throughout the game, the
Blue Devils' defense never gave
the Golden Rams offense a real
chance to score at any point, as
the Golden Rams running game


never, got off the ground and the
passing game.
The next Blue Devil possession
was a one-play, 49-yard touch-
down run by junior running back
Vincent Smith with 1:37 in the
first. Smith led the rushing attack
with 82 yards on only five carries
and a touchdown.
With 7:08 in the second quar-
ter, Pahokee's third offensive
possession, Sheppard threw his
second touchdown pass, this one
being an 11-yarder to senior wide
receiver Dexter Holmes to make it
21-0.
Less than four minutes later,
3:53 left in the half to be exact,
Sheppard scored on a 13-yard
rushing touchdown that complet-
ed a four-play drive.
After senior linebacker Jata-
vious Miller picked off Golden
Rams quarterback T.J. Mullins,
Richardson completed a six-play
drive, .tiptoeing his way into the
end zone with 4.5 seconds left in
the half to make it 34-0.
The Blue Devils scored on ev-
ery offensive 'possession in the


first half.
They made it two scores out of
three possessions in the second
half when early in the third. Rich-
ardson completed a37-yard touch-
down pass to senior wide receiver
Martavious Odoms. Odoms led all
receivers with four receptions for
76yards and a touchdown.
Backup running back Curtis
Daley got to taste the goodness of
the end zone when he ran right
through the middle of John Car-
roll's defense with a 5-yard run.
Daley's chance was made in part
to a blocked John Carroll punt by
junior Brandin Hawthorne.
"I was glad to see us get our
second and third stringers get
into the game," Coach Thomp-
son said, attributing to Daley's 5-
yard touchdown run in the fourth
quarter.
The Blue Devils finished with,
13 first downs, did not have to
punt and committed no turnovers
for the game. Pahokee's rushing
attack was on point, as the team
had 17 total carries for 186 yards
and four touchdowns.
The passing game was led by
Sheppard, who finished with 6-
for-9 passing with 101 yards (128
total) and three touchdowns, two
of them were through the air.


I Pahokee's offense finishedwith
345 total yards, while its dominant
defense limited John Carroll with
only 51 total yards 29 rushing
yards on 28 carries and 22 pass-
ing yards with an interception and
three sacks.
The Blue Devils, who are
ranked.No. 8 in the nation and
No. 5 in the Southeast region, are
looking forward to their home-
coming game tomorrow night

Unheard shouts for help: listening beyond words


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A part of my ministry involved
working with troubled teens in
a residential setting. We would
meet in groups and sometimes,
one person would wind up be-
ing a "scapegoat" for the group;
being attacked by all of the oth-
ers to cover their own fears and
anxieties. One such meeting as-
sailed a young teen who did noth-
ing right according to the others.
They didn't like anything about
her: what she did, what she said,
what she wore nothing! As things
went on and brought her to tears,
I asked the person sitting farthest
from her to "say two nice things
about everybody in this group."


He looked at me in silence and I
told him "Go ahead, do it, start-
ing with the person next to you."
He looked at his friend on his
right and began.
When he got to
the other side of
the group and
young lady who ''
was the "vic-
tim" that day, ,
he paused, then
finally compli- -
mented her on Samuel S.
trying to help Thomas
somebody a few
days before. "Go ahead, that's
one thing, add a second thing
that is nice." He thought, then he
did. We went through the entire
group. It was easier for the "vic-
tim" when her turn came but we


got through the whole group, giv-
ing twice as many compliments
as there were members in the
group.
There are times when people
get carried away with themselves
in the heat of a moment and fail
to see the big picture. The big pic-
ture in this case was that, "We're
all in this together and we need to
help and support each other."
The group ended that day on
a better note than when it began.
In the midst of all of the noise
and anger, there was a need to
hear another voice crying out for
help. At times that voice can be
inaudible; at times the words are
garbled and come out in twisted
ways; at times the cry can be un-
spoken.
Two blind men were sitting


on the side of the roadside as
Jesus passed one day (Matthew
20:29ff). They cried out as the
crowds were going by "Lord,
Son of David, have mercy on us
(v 30)." The crowd rebuked them
and told them to be quiet. In their
desperation, they cried all the
louder; they suffered and begged
to be heard. The Lord stopped;
hearing their voices of despera-
tion in spite of a noisy crowd of
followers. He heard their voices
from the background and asks,
simply, "What do you want me
to do for you?" A simple answer
comes; "Lord, we want our sight
(v. 33)" They were heard and their
lives changed ever afterward.
Sometimes it is a word of kind-
ness in the midst of many angry
words that makes all of the dif-


ference. Not everyone hears the
still small voices in a group of
angry, shouting people. At times
what really needs to be cried out
is unspoken: to "hear" it requires
dedication and understanding. I
saw someone hurting in a group
of peers that all needed healing
but only some cried out and most
cried out in a strange and angry
way. The Lord hears desperate
voices at a roadside; voices that
might have been drowned out,
voices that others tried to stifle,
voices that would have been un-
heard if He had not intervened.
There is that beautiful hymn by
Martin Luther, "A Mighty Fortress
is Our God" that tells of the awe-
some power of the prince of dark-
ness and all of his evil and rage.
Luther reminds us that in spite


of all of the evil power "...for lo,
his doom is sure. One little word
shall fell him." I believe that word
will be a word of compassion.
That would be in keeping with
the nature of the Lord, and that
would be something that would
send the prince of darkness flee-
ing. It would certainly be beyond
his limits to tolerate! It seems that
God has given us the power to
send evil on the run, too, if we
hear the cries of pain in the midst
of shouts of anger, if we listen
even beyond hearing when there
is obviously something wrong.
Then we can do something
Heavenly, Godly, and share in a
small miracle ourselves, or what
would be a big one for another
who is hurting and who bears
God's image too.


Whether to lose



one's job or soul


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Some people will do almost
anything to keep from losing
their secular jobs and almost
nothing to keep from losing their
souls.
Some run more quickly to
the aspirin bottle for the relief
of a headache than they will run
to the Lord Jesus for the forgive-
ness of sin.
Some will go to a movie or
to a ball game but won't go to
church to hear the gospel.
Some become concerned
over a dented fender on the car
but show no concern for a soul
lost in sin.
Some read the daily newspa-
per once a day and their Bible
once a year.
Some feed their children
nourishing foods that strength-
en the body but starve them to
death spiritually.
Some sleep during church
service but are wide-eyed and


awake when their favorite pro-
gram is on T.V
Some call their friends on the
phone every day but never talk
to God through prayer.
Some keep their bodies clean
and sweet smelling but their
minds are filled with dirt and
filth and trash.
Some will be surprised and
condemned at the Judgment.
The Church has been com-
missioned to go out into the
world not to preach sociology
but salvation; not economics
but evangelism; not reform but
redemption; not culture but
conversion; not progress but
pardon; not the new social order
but the new birth; not resuscita-
tion but resurrection; not a new
organization but a new creation;
not democracy but the Gospel;
not civilization but Christ. We are
ambassadors, not diplomats.
Far too few churches are
guided by these words of wis-
dom!


Three must-haves


for the season


By Brian Hamrick
First Baptist Church, Clewiston
One of the greatest battles we
have against our sinful nature is
seeing things we want as things
we NEED. We've got to have a
bigger TV, a newer car, a more
extravagant vacation, and so
on. Unfortunately, we bring this
mentality into the church. We've
got to have symphony quality
music (or rock concert quality,
depending on your church!), ro-
bust children's and youth activi-
ties, lots of people our own age
(preferably, half the city's popu-
lation), preaching that is able to
condense 45 minutes of mate-
rial in about 20 minutes yet still
make sense, etc. Yes, we often
confuse things we want (which
may be helpful or unhelpful)
with things we really need.
So what is it we really need?
Some reflection on Romans 3
made it very clear to me recently
three indispensable needs of
every human being. They are
things we may not think we
need, but we need even more
than oxygen, water, and calo-
ries. What are they?
1) Justification. This is sim-
ply a big theological word to
describe being counted or de-
clared righteous by God. We are
not good people who could use
a little God to be even better. We
are God's enemies by nature, be-
cause we are in rebellion against
Him. God is holy and we are not.
How could he possible count
us right with Him? Could we do
enough to please Him? Is that
how our sins are forgiven? No.
But thankfully, God has provided
for us what we could not- a Sav-
ior. We are justified through the
blood Jesus shed on the cross, a
death He died as a substitute for
sinful people. And if we are justi-
fied before God and by God, our
sin is no longer counted against
us.
2) Redemption. We may
not be used to thinking of re-
demption to describe anything


other than a coupon or an athlete
making up for his previous mis-
take in a game. The Bible says
that we are born into slavery.
Not an economic slavery, but a
spiritual slavery. We are slaves
to sin, and the wages of sin is
death. Not just physical death,
but an eternal torment in hell.
Is there anyone to set us free?
Indeed, there is! As Jesus said in
John 8:36, "So if the Son sets you
free, you will be free indeed." If
we have been redeemed, sin is
no longer our master, and we
are free.to honor the Lord as our
rightful master.
3) Propitiation. Not a word
we use everyday, is it? Perhaps
it is a completely new word to
you. But it simply means this:
to satisfy the wrath of someone
else. In this context, God is a God
who stores up wrath for the Day
of Judgment against those who
remain in rebellion against Him.
How can His wrath be satisfied?
How can His justice against sin
be maintained? Jesus Christ was
sent to be our propitiation. It is
through His death on the cross
the wrath of God has been satis-
fied for all who believe in Him.
Without His death to cover us,
we are still God's enemies, and
recipients of His wrath.
There we have it, three must-
haves for the season of life:
justification, redemption, and
propitiation. You enter the world
with none of them; you can at-
tain none of those by human
effort or will. They are the most
precious gifts you could receive
from God, and they are received
through faith.
Meditate on these words that
summarize the Gospel so well
(Romans 3:22b-25):
For there is no distinction: for
all have sinned and fall short of
the glory of God, and are justified
by his grace as a gift, through the
redemption that is in Christ Je-
sus, whom God put forward as
a propitiation by his blood, to be
received by faith.


Cut the fat and give me the meat


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
A little fat adds flavor. Too
much fat isn't good. Just like I ap-
preciate the butcher who trims
the fat before selling me the meat,
so I value the
communicator
who does the
same. Cut the
fat and keep the
fact. Give me
simple thoughts
to chew on, not
words to wade
through. John
Take for in- Hicks
stance these
words of wisdom 'gleaned from
military experiences: "Tracers
work both ways" (U.S. Army
Ordnance). "Five second fuses
only last three seconds" (Infantry
Journal). "Don't ever be the first,
don't ever be the last, and don't
volunteer to do anything" (U.S.


Navy Swabbie). "Any ship can be
a minesweeper once." "Never
tell the Platoon Sergeant you have
nothing to do" (Unknown Marine
Recruit). "Don't draw fire; it irri-
tates the people around you." "If
you see a bomb technician run-
ning, follow him." (USAF Ammo
Troop).
I also love these thought pro-
voking questions that recently
came my way: "Why do doctors
and lawyers call what they do
practice?" "Why is abbreviation
such a long word?" "Why is it that
when you're driving and looking
for an address, you turn down
the volume on your radio?" "Why
is a boxing ring square?" "What
was the best thing before sliced
bread?" And, "How did a fool and
his money get together in the first
place?"
These are some of the other
one-liners that I have gleaned
over a period of time. I invite you
to keep the ones you like, toss the


ones you don't and use the ones
you have.
"Pray at all times. If neces-
sary, use words." "Bad company
corrupts good character." (1 Cor.
15:33) "Never miss a chance to
read a child a story." "We need
17 affirmations or appropriate
touches a day to thrive." "The
right heart with the wrong creed
is better than the right creed with
the wrong heart."
"As soon as you can, pay your
debts. As long as you can, give
the benefit of the doubt. As much
as you can, give thanks." "I can
do everything through Him who
gives me strength." (Philippians
4:13)
"God doesn't keep a clock."
"Sometimes the most Godly thing
we can do is to take a day off."
"Faith in the future begets power
in the present." "When Jesus
went home, He left the front door
open."
If you think about it, Jesus was
a master of short, sweet, and to


the point. His greatest sermon
can be read in eight minutes (Mat-
thew 5-7). His best known story
can be read in ninety seconds
(Luke 15:11 -32). Jesus summa-
rized prayer in five phrases (Mat-
thew 6:9-13). He summarized the
Law in three verses (Mark 12:29
-31). He healed the sick with two
words (Matthew 8:3), and He re-
duced all of His teachings to one
command (John 15:12)
In that spirit, let me share the
Bible in 50 words: God made.
Adam bit. Noah arked. Abraham
split. Joseph ruled. Jacob fooled.
Bush talked. Moses balked. Pha-
raoh plagued. People walked. Sea
divided. Tablets guided. Prom-
ise landed. Saul freaked. David
peeked. Prophets warned. Jesus
born. God Walked. Love talked.
Anger crucified. Hope died. Love
rose. Spirit flamed. Word spread.
God remained.
Or to sum it up even further:
He loves. He gave. We believe.
We live.

Tigers breakout prior to kickoff.


Tailback Colin Ricketts breaks into the open and rips off a big gain.


Clewiston Tigers Steamroll past Pope John Paul


Clewiston traveled to Boca
Raton to take on the Eagles in a
district match up Friday night and
the Tigers finally got their game in
sync after halftime and powered
to a 35-0 victory. It was the Tigers
second District 6-2A victory in as
many tries and keeps their playoff
hopes alive. The Tigers record is
now 2-5 overall. Clewiston travels
to Riviera Beach this week to take
on Inlet Grove and return home
the following week to close out
district play against St. Andrews.,
They'll have to win both games
to prevail in the district and a split
would give them the runner-up
berth.
In this game, the Tigers took
the opening kickoff and wasted
no time in marching 61 yards in
7 plays to score with 7:50 remain-
ing. Tailback Colin Ricketts, start-
ing for Darris Hughes who sat out
the game for disciplinary reasons,
had a 22-yard burst along with a
21-yard smash from fullback Wil-
lie Armstrong to set up the score.
Ricketts got the final 3 yards up
the middle. The point after kick
was just wide of the right upright.
The Eagles only managed one
first down on their first series and
punted with the Tigers taking pos-
- session deep at their 17. Ricketts
had 'gains of 17 and 13 but the
drive ran out of steam and Clew-
iston was forced to punt.
The Eagles were again stymied
by the Tiger defense and punted
with Clewiston getting the ball at
midfield early in the next period.
But the second quarter proved to


Fullback Willie Armstrong sets sail on 41 yards touchdown run.


be no friend of the Tigers. They
racked up six first downs on two
drives but kept being setback by
untimely penalties and incom-
plete passes. Clewiston's second
drive of the quarter was set up by
an interception deep in Tiger ter-
ritory and 20 yard return by cor-
nerback Damian Smith. With 1:19
remaining in the .half, kicker Will


Davis cashed in on a 22-yard field
goal to put the Tigers out front by
a 9-0 score. But with 198 yards
rushing in the first half, the Tigers
knew that they should have had
more points on the board and
the Eagles still were in the ball
game even though they had only
managed 11 yards rushing and
56 yards passing. At that point,


game officials halted the contest
due to lightning in the area. By
agreement of both coaches, the
remaining time was wiped off
the clock and the teams headed
to the lockers for the intermission
which stretched into a 90-minute
delay.
The Tigers emerged from the
long halftime delay with an of-


fense that was finally ready to roll
and a defense that thought it had
never left the field. They prompt-
ly shut down the Eagles and took
possession at the Tiger 30. Rick-
etts reeled off a 15-yard gain and
two plays later Armstrong went
off tackle and hit the outside for
41 yards, dragging defenders
as he rolled, for the score. Will
Davis' kick was again just off the
mark.
The Eagles took the kickoff
and on the second play Damian
Smith picked off his second pass
of the night. from the Eagles' 47, it
only took Clewiston four snaps to
score with Armstrong smashing
through for a 25 yard touchdown
run up the gut. Davis added the
extra point. At this point, the Tiger
defense was totally dominating
the Eagles and got the ball right
back for their offense with great
field position at the Eagle 41.
Ricketts ran off tackle for gains
of 15 and 22 yards and then Arm-
strong finished off the drive with
a 12-yard run. The kick was again
just a foot or so wide to the right.
Clewiston closed out the scor-
ing in the final period when full-
back Alex Rubio streaked right
through the heart of the defense
for a 25-yard touchdown. Davis
found the mark on this attempt.
Clewiston's defense was su-
perb on the night. They held the
Eagles to 12 yards rushing on 15
carries and kept the Eagles' pass-
ing game in check with only 69
yards total and the two intercep-
tions by Smith. Armstrong, seeing

double duty all night, had 8 solo
tackles, and two assists, includ-
ing a running sack. Alex Rubio,
from his linebacker position, had
5 tackles, an assist and a quarter-
back sack for a loss of six yards.
Offensively, the Tigers amassed
417 yards rushing on 40 attempts.
Colin Ricketts led the way with
247 yards on 22 rushes and Wil-
lie Armstrong was virtually un-
stoppable with 128 yards on 7
tries. The Tiger passing attack
continued its woes with only one
completion on eight throws for a
total of 3 yards. The point after
kicking game was also uncharac-
teristically out of sorts. Will Davis,
who was a perfect 55 of 55 for last
year's team, was ever so slightly
off the mark on three attempts.
The Tigers are still hampered
by injuries incurred in the Glades
Central game a month ago. Se-
nior center Ryan Gutshall has
been given medical clearance
from his knee injury to return this
week. Wideout and defensive
back Zack Waddell is still week-
to-week because of a shoulder
injury. Although playing, Ricketts
and tight end Delvin Hughes have
been slowed by leg injuries as
was center Dillon Irey.
The Inlet Grove contest will
be a 4 p.m. on Friday in Riviera
Beach. Inlet Grove, sporting a
6-1 overall record and 3-0 in the
district, is right in the path of the
Tigers' goal of repeating as district
champions.

According to journal, staph infections can be deadly


Recent news reports of cases
of high school athletes contract-
ing methicillin-resistant Staphy-
lococcus aureus or MRSA (pro-
nounced "mirsa") have many
people concerned.
According to the Journal of
the American Medical Associa-
tion, MRSA an estimated 94,360
persons in the U.S. developed a
serious MRSA infection in 2005,
and during that same time pe-
riod, about 18,650 people died
during a hospital stay related to a
MRSA infection.
While most MRSA infections
are associated with persons in
hospitals or nursing homes, 14
percent occur in persons without
obvious exposures to the health
care industry, according to the
report.
The following list of Fre-
quently Asked Questions
(FAQ) comes from the Center
for Disease Control.
What is Staphylococcus
aureus (staph)?
Staphylococcus aureus, often
referred to simply as "staph," are
bacteria commonly carried on
the skin or in the nose of healthy
people. Approximately 25 per-
cent to 30 percent of the popula-
tion is colonized (when bacteria
are present, but not causing an
infection) in the nose with staph
bacteria. Sometimes, staph can
cause an infection. Staph bac-
teria are one of the most com-
mon causes of skin infections in
the United States. Most of these
skin infections are minor (such
as pimples and boils) and can
be treated without antibiotics
(also known as antimicrobials or
antibacterials). However, staph
bacteria also can cause seri-
ous infections (such as surgical
wound infections, bloodstream

infections, and.pneumonia).
What is MRSA (methicil-
lin-resistant Staphylococcus
aureus)?
Some staph bacteria are re-
sistant to antibiotics. MRSA is a
type of staph that is resistant to
antibiotics called beta-lactams.
Beta-lactam antibiotics include
methicillin and other more com-
mon antibiotics such as oxacillin,
penicillin and amoxicillin. While
25 percent to 30 percent of the
population is colonized with
staph, approximately one percent
is colonized with MRSA.
Who gets staph or MRSA
infections?
Staph infections, including
MRSA, occur most frequently
among persons in hospitals and
healthcare facilities (such as nurs-
ing homes and dialysis centers)
who have weakened immune
systems. These healthcare-associ-
ated staph infections include sur-
gical wound infections, urinary
tract infections, bloodstream in-
fections, and pneumonia.
What is community-asso-
ciated MRSA (CA-MRSA)?
Staph and MRSA can also
cause illness in persons outside
of hospitals and healthcare fa-
cilities. MRSA infections that are
acquired by persons who have
neither been recently (within the
past year) hospitalized nor had a
medical procedure (such as dial-


ysis, surgery, catheters) are know
as CA-MRSA infectiStaph or MRSA
infections in the community are
usually manifested as skin infec-
tions, such as pimples and boils,
and occur in otherwise healthy
people.
How common are staph
and MRSA infections?
Staph bacteria are one of the
most common causes of skin in-
fection in the United States and
are a common cause of pneumo-
nia, surgical wound infections,
and bloodstream infections. The
majority of MRSA infections oc-
cur among patients in hospitals
or other healthcare settings; how-
ever, it is becoming more com-
mon in the community setting.
Data from a prospective study in
2003, suggests that 12 percent of
clinical MRSA infections are com-
munity-associated, but this varies
by geographic region and popu-
lation.
What does a staph or
MRSA infection look like?
Staph bacteria, including
MRSA, can cause skin infections
that may look like a pimple or boil
and can be red, swollen, pain-
ful, or have pus or other drain-
age. More serious infections may
cause pneumonia, bloodstream
infections, or surgical wound in-
fections.
Are certain people at in-
creased risk for community-
associated staph or MRSA
infections?
CDC has investigated clusters
of CA-MRSAskin infections among
athletes, militaryrecruits, children,
Pacific Islanders, Alaskan Natives,
Native Americans, men who have
sex with men, and prisoners.
Factors that have been associated
with the spread of MRSA skin
infections include: close skin-to-


skin contact, openings in the skin
such as cuts or abrasions, con-
taminated items and surfaces,
crowded living conditions, and
poor hygiene.
How can I prevent staph
or MRSA skin infections?
Practice good hygiene:
Keep your hands clean by
washing thoroughly with soap
and water or using an alcohol-
based hand sanitizer.
Keep cuts and scrapes clean
and covered with a bandage until
healed.
Avoid contact with other
people's wounds or bandages.
Avoid sharing personal items
such as towels or razors.
Are people who are posi-
tive for the human immune
deficiency virus (HIV) at
increased risk for MRSA?
Should they be taking special
precautions?
People with weakened im-
mune systems, which include
some patients with HIV infection,
may be at risk for more severe
illness if they get infected with
MRSA. People with HIV should
follow the same prevention mea-
sures as those without HIV to
prevent staph infections, includ-
ing practice good hygiene, cover
wounds (e.g., cuts or abrasions)
with clean dry bandages, avoid
sharing personal items such as
towels and razors, and contact
their doctor if they think they
have an infection.
Can I get a staph or MRSA
infection at my health club?
In the outbreaks of MRSA, the
environment has not played a sig-
nificant role in the transmission
of MRSA. MRSA is transmitted
most frequently by direct skin-
to-skin contact. You can protect
yourself from infections by prac-


ticing good hygiene (e.g., keep-
ing your hands clean by washing
with soap and water or using
an alcohol-based hand rub and
showering after working out);
covering any open skin area such
as abrasions or cuts with a clean
dry bandage; avoiding sharing
personal items such as towels or
razors; using a barrier (e.g., cloth-
ing or a towel) between your skin
and shared equipment; and wip-
ing surfaces of equipment before
and after use.
What should I do if I think
I have a staph or MRSA infec-
tion?
See your healthcare provider.
Are staph and MRSA infec-
tions treatable?
Yes. Most staph and MRSA in-
fections are treatable with antibi-
otics. If you are given an antibi-
otic, take all of the doses, even if
the infection is getting better, un-
less your doctor tells you to stop
taking it. Do not share antibiotics
with other people or save unfin-
ished antibiotics to use at another
time.
However, many staph skin in-
fections may be treated by drain-
ing the abscess or boil and may
not require antibiotics. Drainage
of skin boils or abscesses should
only be done by a healthcare pro-
,vider.
If after visiting your healthcare
provider the infection is not get-
ting better after a few days, con-
tact them again. If other people
you know or live with get the
same infection tell them to go to
their healthcare provider.
Is it possible that my staph
or MRSA skin infection will
come back after it is cured?
Yes. It is possible to have a
staph or MRSA skin infection
come back (recur) after it is


cured. To prevent this from hap-.
pening, follow your healthcare
provider's directions while you
have the infection, and follow the
prevention steps after the infec-
tion is gone.
If I have a staph, or MRSA
skin infection, what can I do
to prevent others from get-
ting Infected?
You can prevent spreading
staph or MRSA skin infections to
others by following these steps:
Cover your wound. Keep
wounds that are draining or have
pus covered with clean, dry ban-
dages. Follow your healthcare
provider's instructions on proper
care of the wound. Pus from in-
fected wounds can contain staph
and MRSA, so keeping the infec-
tion covered will help prevent the
spread to others. Bandages or
tape can be discarded with the
regular trash.
SClean your hands. You, your
family, and others in close con-
tact should wash their hands fre-
quently with soap and warm wa-
ter or use an alcohol-based hand
sanitizer, especially after chang-
ing the bandage or touching the
infected wound.
Do not share personal items.
Avoid sharing personal items
such as towels, washcloths, ra-
zors, clothing, or uniforms that
may have had contact with the
infected wound or bandage.
Wash sheets, towels, and clothes
that become soiled with water
and laundry detergent. Drying
clothes in a hot dryer, rather than
air-drying, also helps kill bacteria
in clothes.
Talk to your doctor. Tell any
healthcare providers who treat
you that you have or had a staph
or MRSA skin infection.


Allergies and their affects can make Halloween scarier


For many of the 3.1 million
American children with food al-
lergy, the candy they get while
trick-or-treating is the spookiest
part of Halloween. And the grow-
ing popularity of allergen advi-
sory labeling may confuse them
and their parents as to which can-
dies are safe and which should be
avoided.
"Many of the most common
food allergens are found in can-
dy," said Anne Mufioz-Furlong,
founder and CEO of the Food
Allergy & Anaphylaxis Network


(FAAN). "For some children, just
one bite of the wrong food can
bring on anaphylaxis a severe
allergic reaction that can cause
death,"
Eight foods account for 90 per-
cent of all food-allergic reactions in
the U.S.: milk, eggs, peanuts, tree
nuts, wheat, soy, fish, and shell-
fish. Of these, only the last two are
not likely to be found in candy.
The incidence of food allergy
has doubled in the last 10 years,
and scientists aren't sure why.
More than 12 million Americans


-- one in 25 -- are caught up in this
life-altering epidemic, which re-
sults in 150-200 deaths and more
than 30,000 emergency room vis-
its each year. There is no known
cure; strict avoidance is the only
way to prevent a reaction.
To make matters even trickier
for those dealing with food aller-
gy, an increasing number of food
manufacturers are labeling their
products with advisory warnings
about the possible unintentional
presence of common allergens.
Because these warnings have


become so common, consum-
ers have begun to ignore them in
the belief that they're not serious,
which puts them at increased risk
for a reaction.
A study reported earlier this
year in the Journal of Allergy and
Clinical Immunology found that
fewer parents are heeding the
warnings today than did several
years ago. Advisory labeling typi-
cally includes such statements as
"may contain [allergen]," "man-
ufactured on shared equipment
with [allergen]," and "manufac-


tured in the same facility with [al-
lergen]."
Parents are urged not to ig-
nore these warnings on Hallow-
een treats.
As a non-candy alternative to
raise money for food allergy re-
search and education, FAAN has
organized its fifth annual Trick or
Treat for Food Allergy campaign


for this Halloween. Participants of
all ages will collect coins instead
of candy in specially marked col-
lection boxes. The campaign is
sponsored by Abbott, makers of
EleCare and other specialty nu-
trition products for children. For
more information, contact FAAN
at (800) 929-4040 or visit ww
foodallergy.org on the Web.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AN AIR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT

STATE OF FLORIDA
DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
Draft Air Construction Permit No.: 0510015-018-AC
Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation Clewiston Facility
Hendry County
The Department of Environmental Protection (permitting authority) gives notice of its intent to issue an air construction permit to Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation for its Clewiston Facility located at 1820 County Road 833, Clewiston, Hendry County.
The applicant's name and address are: Tristan Chapman, Vice President, Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, 1820 County Road 833, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
The permitted, Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, applied on September 10, 2007, for authorization to conduct pilot testing and parameter measurements to determine ifcombusting higher sulfur content fuel oil will meet the sulfur dioxide emissions limit
imposed by PSD-FL-368; evaluate used oil as a potential fuel; and, evaluate the addition of various caustics to the integral scrubber on SO2. This evaluation will require Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation to install, test and operate a S02 CEM (or approved equivalent)
to continuously monitor SO, emissions for the pilot test period and install an additional spray ring (if necessary), a caustic injection system, flow monitor and pH monitor for the integral scrubber. During the pilot test period, No. 6 or better grade fuel oil with a maximum sulfur con-
tent of 1.0 percent or used oil will be burned in the No. 1 Peel Dryer. The data gathered will determine if the peel dryers can burn fuel oil with sulfur content greater than 0.1 percent or used oil, without further modification. In addition, data will be gathered to determine if there is
additional SO, removal by the addition of various caustics to the integral scrubber. The pilot testing is scheduled to run from November 1, 2007 to January 31, 2008.
The permitting authority will issue the Air Construction Permit, and subsequent Final Air Construction Permit, in accordance with the conditions of the Draft Air Construction Permit unless a response received in accordance with the following procedures results in a dif-
ferent decision or significant change of terms or conditions.
The permitting authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Air Construction Permit issuance action for a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of publication of this Notice. Written comments should be provided to the Department's Bureau
of Air Regulation, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Mail Station #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. Any written comments filed shall be made available for public inspection. If written comments received result in a significant change in this Draft Air Construction Permit, the permitting
authority shall issue a Revised Draft Air Construction Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition must contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received) in Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000 (Telephone: 850/488-9730; Fax: 850/487-4938). Petitions filed by any persons other than those
entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within fourteen days of publication of the public notice or within fourteen days of receipt of the notice of intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), FS., however, any person who asked the permit-
ting authority for notice of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to
file a petition within the applicable time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention
will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205, Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file(s) or identification numberss, if known;.
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be.the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how petitioner's sub
stantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received notice of the agency action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle petitioner to relief; and
(f) A demand for relief
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authority's action is 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, FAC.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the permitting authority on the application have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
A complete project file is available for public inspection during normal business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holidays, at:
