Lake levels still below normal


Experts say
lake may fall to
as low as 7 feet

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
LAKE OKEECHOBEE The
Glades area had rainfall this year,
but not nearly enough.
According to the South Flor-
ida Water Management District
(SFWMD), the crisis is severe
enough to warrant more water
restrictions in the near future.


Experts say the area can ex-
pect another drought in the dry
season.
The dry season began last
Thursday and as of Monday, the
Lake Okeechobee water levels
are at a low of 10.38 feet above
sea level, according to Carol Ann
Wehle, the district's executive di-
rector.
Ms. Wehle said that the all-
time low level surpasses the pre-
vious record for Nov. 5 at 11.53
feet -- that figure was taken in.
1981. Last year, the lake level
was at 12.67 feet, 2.29 feet higher
than it was on Monday.


With thewet season now over,
the water district has warned
residents to be prepared for pro-
longed, severe water shortages
and even tighter restrictions for
water use.
"A normal wet season was
never going to be enough to pull
us out of the water shortage left
behind by the 2006 far-below-
normal wet season and subse-
quent dry season," the executive
director said. "Our consistent
message to residents has been
that we remain in a severe re-
gional water shortage. Now as.
we enter the dry season, water


conservation will be critical to
ensuring there is enough water
available."
Typically, the area receives ap-
proximately 18 inches of rainfall
,during the dry season, which will
last through May 2008. But due
to the climate forecasters' pre-
diction that a La Nina pattern of
colder than normal temperatures
will take place soon, experts are:
expecting anywhere from two to
Ssix inches less than that.
What does this all mean for'
residents and agricultural users
of the Glades area?
For starters, agriculture users


should expect to cut back on
their water use by at least 45 per-
cent, also known as the Phase III
restriction level. As for citizens,
however, outside water use will
most likely by limited to one day
per week beginning sometime
next month.
The district is expected to ini-
tiate recommendations for year-
round water restrictions in the
coming weeks, W\ith the passing
of the even stricter water use ex-
pected no later than Christmas.
"It will take every citizen to

Also, Anthony Sheppard and
Nu'Keese Richardson were not


at their best due to fever-like
symptoms. :
Still, though Sheppard had
his worst outing of the season
so far, he was 9-for-20 passing
with 161 yards and an intercep-
tion, the offense did more than
enough to handily defeat the
Indians, 25-2.
On the Blue Devils' first
drive, which was marred with
multiple penalties, they still
were able to get a touchdown
out ,of it, capped by a 1-yard


touchdown run from senior
Marcus Washington with 5:53
left in the first quarter.
After an interception thrown-
by Sheppard in the second
quarter -- Vero Beach senior
Skyler Stanford caught the pick

U.S. Army Corps reviews dike safety


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
Yet another report was recent-
Sly released on the condition of the
Herbert Hoover Dike. On Friday,
,Nov. 2 the U. S. Army Corps of En-
gineers (COE) held a telephone
press conference to announce
the release of the Herbert Hoover
Dike Consensus Report. This
newest report came on the heels
'of two 2006 reports, one commis-
sioned by the South Florida Water
Management Distric.t and one by
COE. This latest report, for the
most part, endorsed the findings
of those previous studies.
"Public safety is our number
one priority," said Eric Halpin, P.E.,
special assistant for dam and levee
safety for COE in Washington, as
he opened the press conference.
He said that a panel of six experts
in industry, government and aca-

Historic

Preservation

Grants holds

workshop
TALLAHASSEE Secretary of
SState Kurt S. Browning announced
recently that the Division of His-
,torical Resources would hold
a Historic Preservation Grants
Workshop November 15 from 9
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Room 307
of the R. A. Gray Building at 500
South Bronough Street in down-
town Tallahassee. This workshop
will offer grant writing and grant
management training related to
the Division's Historic Preserva-
Stion Grants. The workshop is free
and open to all interested parties.
Due .to space limitations, atten-
dance is limited to 40. Based on
the response to this workshop,
Another may be offered.
The workshop's' morning ses-
sion from 9 a.m. to noon will
concentrate on types of grants
offered by the Division, appli-
cation instructions and tips for
improvement, and an overview
of the grant review and funding
processes. The afternoon session
from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. will con-
centrate on grant management
skills. Topics to be discussed are
grant award documents, project
-scheduliing advertising and con-
tracting for goods and services,
grant progress-reporting, dead-
lines, and schedule for disburse-
ment of grant funding. Time will
be reserved at the end of both
sessions for questions and com-
ments. This workshop is offered
.in preparation for the Division's
December 17 deadline for sub-
,mission of "Small-Matching" His-
toric Preservation grants. Eligible
,applicants are Departments or
agencies of the state (including
universities), cities, counties and
other units of local government
and not-for-profit organizations.

,hotel list and parking map, and
to RSVP for the November 15
workshop, visit the Historic Pres-
ervation Grants Web site at www.

tion Grants staff at (850) 245-6333
or toll free at 1-(800) 842-7278.


demics were enlisted to conduct
an independent external review
of the dike. He noted that some
of the panel's recommendations
have already been acted upon.
According to Allen Bud, team
leader on the Herbert Hoover Dike
project for COE's Jacksonville Dis-
trict, this report is a "good news
story" that contained no surprises
and supported conclusions of the
two previous reports.
Dr. Donald Bruce, one of the
panel members, said the panel
was very impressed with current
surveillance and monitoring of
the dike being done by COE.
Mr. Bud said COE was look-
ing at an emergency spillway to
release large amounts of excess
water from the lake. A spillway
is only concerned with releasing
water for flood control purposes
as opposed to a flow way pro-


posed by some environmentalists.
A flow way would be concerned
with ecology. Part of the problem
with controlling the lake level is
that six times as much water can
enter the lake as can be currently
be released.
Throughout the report, the ele-
vaton of 17 feet was mentioned as
the magic number above which
the lake should not be allowed
to rise until dike rehabilitation is
complete. The panel judged an
elevation of 11.6 feet would cause
no problems to the dike.
Since design philosophies
have evolved over the years the
panel recommended that specific
remedial concepts be adapted to
specific sections of the dike.
The corps had divided the
levee into numbered segments
called reaches. However, the
numbers are not consecutive.


The panel agreed with earlier
studies that stated that segments
of Reaches 1, 2 3, and 7 are in
the "urgent and compelling" cat-
egory requiring immediate atten-
tion. These reaches are along the
southern and eastern side of the
lake. Okeechobee is in Reach 5.
The panel recommended that
COE perform detailed risk analy-
sis of each vulnerable stretch of
the dike as soon as possible.
The panel concurred with the
general rehabilitation approach
of filling in the toe ditch and quar-
ries and constructing cutoffs and
seepage berms.
The extent and timing of reha-
bilitation efforts will depend on
how much funding is provided by
Congress.

Leigh Woodham advocate for the arts


BELLE GLADE On October
20, at its annual conference in
Jacksonville, the FATE (Florida
Association of Theatre Educators)
presented to Mrs. Leigh Wood-
ham, Theatre Director of the Dol-
ly Hand Cultural Arts Center, their
Advocate for the Arts Award...
Mrs. Sarah Bennett, Glades Cen-
tral High School's Theatre Arts
Director, presented the award.
"I have worked with Leigh on
many programs and have seen
her increase the Theatre Arts in
the Glades in many new ways.
My program can only benefit
from her program," she said
An Advocate for the Arts is a
person who helps to build, sup-
port and begin programs, Mrs.
Leigh Woodham, is a superior
example of an Advocate for the
Arts.
As the Theatre Director for The
Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center,
associated with the Palm Beach
Community College Glades Cam-
pus in Belle Glade, she has helped
the audience to grow to sold out
capacity for most all shows. As
many theatres are struggling for
audiences, Leigh has worked and
helped the Dolly Hand Theatre to
grow. This brings Broadway and
a wide assortment of entertaining
productions to our community.
She also doubled programs
for the elementary schools from
10 productions a year to 20. Giv-


ing these young students the
experience of seeing many per-
formances each year will add to
their connection to the theatre
for life. Leigh
arranges these
shows offers to
our students at
no charge. This
is a wonderful
opportunity for
students who
come from fam-
ilies with tight Leigh
budgets. Every Woodham
child should be
given the same opportunities to
participate in the fine things of
life. Theatre experience is truly
one of these Fine Arts.
Leigh has been instrumental
in bringing the Missoula Chil-
dren's Theatre to the Dolly Hand
for the past 12 years. This pro-
gram brings together elementary,
middle and high school students
for one energetic, creative week.
At the end of the week the chil-
dren present a musical play, Alice
in Wonderland, The Wizard of Oz
or some other classic story to an
elementary audience on Friday;
then to the public on Saturday.
This gives our budding young ac-
tors an idea of what theatre really
is.
When a production is at the
Dolly Hand, Leigh arranges to
bring workshops to high school


drama students of Glades Central
High School to give the students
an opportunity to talk to profes-
sional actors. Also, Glades Central
and The Dolly Hand have started a
program, The Career Experience
Cooperative, to allow students to
work with the professional com-
panies presenting productions at
the Dolly Hand. Students work in
various responsibilities and duties
for the day. They work the show
at night and finish by loading the
show out. In this way they truly
understand what it means to be
in theatre.
Leigh has worked for the past
10 years with the Very Special
Arts program. The VSA Arts West
Day is held at the Dolly Hand. Stu-
dents from Glades Central, Paho-
kee, Glades Day, Eagle Academy
come to help the Special Educa-
tional students enjoy the arts. In
addition to the various duties of
the students, the drama students
work in the booth, back stage
and as characters, to entertain
the young audience and actors,
to make this day a very special
day in the theatre for them.
In addition to all of her help at
the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Cen-
ter to expose so many students to
the love of theatre, she has also
served as the President of the Pa-
hokee High School Band Boost-
ers for four years, been Chair of
the Palm Beach Cultural Council


and has served on the Cultural
Executive Committee.
When the Dolly Hand theatre
was damaged during one of the
hurricanes, to avoid having the
elementary school's shows can-
celled, she called Glades Central
to see if Mrs. Bennett could host
the elementary school programs.
This was a wonderful opportu-
nity for the students to help with
set ups and the production of
programs like "The Palm Beach
Opera." Leigh never denies an
opportunity to extend theatre to
one and all.
When students from Glades
Central had the opportunity to
attend a summer program at the
Burt Reynolds Theater Acting
Workshops, Leigh took the initia-
tive to organize transportation for
the students. From our town to
Jupiter where the classes were to
be held is a two-hour drive, one
way! She rounded up some of the
best "do-gooder" ladies of the
community and assigned them
trips to make. Only Leigh had the
clout and ability to be able to get
this done.
Leigh is always is smiling; she
can work an audience with such
wholesome repartee and be the
most accommodating person to
help programs and plans to be
fulfilled. Leigh Woodham is a true
Advocate for the Arts.

United Way launches annual campaign


FORT MYERS More than
700 volunteers and community
leaders gathered at the Harbor-
side Event Center to celebrate the
United Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades 50th Anniversary Cam-
paign Kick-Off. Campaign Chair,
and President, CEO and Chair-
man of the Board of Chico's, FAS,
Scott Edmonds urged the crowd
to support the United Way and
said, "By supporting the United
Way, in helping our neighbors
receive the assistance they need,
together, we can make a differ-
ence in our community."
The program opened with a
rousing performance from Buddy
Holly and the Crickets. Broadway
Palm Dinner Theatre provided
the performance to coincide with
this year's theme "Giving Rocks!"
The goal for this year's cam-
paign is $7.28 million. Thanks to
the generosity of our community,
the campaign is off to an amaz-
ing start.
Edmonds announced that
the 80 pacesetter companies -
those who run their campaigns
early to demonstrate United Way
support and to encourage others


- along with early leadership
gifts, have already raised a total of
$4,083,358. This represents 56%
of the goal and Pacesetter compa-
nies set the pace with a huge 12%
increase in giving over last year.
Pacesetter Chair, Gino Littlestone
of Oswald Trippe & Company
was overjoyed with the results.
"The fact that these companies
had a double digit increase over
last year is amazing. This really
shows that Giving does Rock in
our community," said Littlestone.
Publix had a record breaking
year and raised the most of any of
the pacesetter companies again
with $1,141,026. Publix has been
a long and generous supporter of
the United Way, and has repeat-
edly set new records over the past
eight years.
Six other companies also
exceeded the $100,000 mark:
Chico's with $300,000; Oswald
Trippe and Company Inc. with
$265,000; Lee Memorial Health
System with $141,720; The
News-Press with $118,151; Lee
County Government employees
with $116,392 and LCEC with
$105,000. The top 15 Pacesetter


companies are listed below and

All money raised in the United

cal community to help support
the local human service net-


work of partner agencies. United
Way agencies like Alvin A Dubin
Alzheimer's Resource Center,
Children's Advocacy Center, Big
Brothers Big Sisters, and LARC
serve a diverse range of needs in
our community such as nurtur-
ing children and youth, strength-
ening families, meeting critical
needs such as helping the elderly
and disabled live independently,
and empowering communities
by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds
for human service organizations
in our community, the United
Way promotes partnerships and
collaborations among agencies,
helping them to work together
focusing on issues and solutions
that continue to improve lives.
This year is the organization's
50th anniversary. The United Way
of Lee, Hendry and Glades has
been "the way the community
cares" since it was established
in 1957. For more information
please call United Way of Lee,
Hendry and Glades Counties at

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes affects your body from head to toes. This includes your
eyes. The most common and most serious eye complication of dia-
betes is diabetic retinopathy, which may result in poor vision or
even blindness.
S"Retinopathy" is the medical term for damage to the tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the back of
your eye that captures light and relays information to your brain.
The high blood sugar levels associated with diabetes often affect
these blood vessels.
SNearly half of people with known diabetes have some degree of
diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely
it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild vision problems. But, the
condition can worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with early detection and
treatment, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic retinopathy is
small. At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of ocu-
lar and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our office at
(863) 675-0761 for more information or to set-up and appoint-
ment.

EDUCATION


GC Thespians, teachers to perform


'A Midsummer Night's Dream'


The Glades Central Thespians
will be performing Shakespeare's
play, A Midsummer Night's
Dream, Wednesday Nov. 13 and
Thursday Nov. 14 at 7:30 p.m. in
the school's theatre. The Thespi-
ans wanted a challenge but some-
thing fun also .A Midsummer
Night's Dream supplies both.
"Students can understand and
portray Shakespeare as well as
more modern material," Theatre
Arts Director, Sarah Bennett said.
"And with Shakespeare they will
be able to lean and create the
excitement of characters in the-
atre."
The returning juniors and se-
niors are helping the new ninth
and tenth graders to learn the
workings of the theatre. The
technical crew members Jordan


Mustafa, Michael Sloan, Valdimir,
Cecily Barriantos and Veronica
Goggans, ably assist the actors,
Dairent Beavers, Blake Benjamin,
Janika Johnson, April Burroughs,
Samantha King, Betty Marcelin,
Abdon Acosta, Daphnee, D'Erika
Haslem,
There will be a special treat for
the audiences of Glades Central
and the community. Mrs. Jen-
nifer Hall, an English teacher at
Glades Central who has taught A
Midsummer Night's Dream many
times is appearing as Helena in
the play.
"This is a wonderful opportu-
nity to perform in a play I love so
much. To show the students that
Shakespeare is not just to be read,
but also should be acted and seen
is exciting, said Mrs. Hall.


With her appearance in the.
play, this should have been
enough, but also appearing as
Queen Hippolyta is long time
Theatre Arts director, Mrs. Sarah
Bennett.
"I have appeared occasionally
in plays, so it is great fun to be in
the show,"she said. "Now the
students will be able to critique
me."
In December, Act 5 of the play
will be presented at the Thespian
District 10 One-Act play festival.
Tickets for the upcoming No-
vember 13 and 14 productions
may be purchased for $5.00 from
Mrs. Bennett or from any cast
member.
For further information, you
may call Glades Central High
School at 993-4403.

A literacy partnership in the making


Rosenwald, PBSO
join to improve
student literacy

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY -- Helping some-
one read is a good deed.
It is one of a few key tips told
to students from Ms. Tanya Allen-
Moore's fourth-grade class at Ros-
enwald Elementary School.
Recently, the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO)
visited Ms. Allen-Moore's class
and read to the 14 students. The
group sat attentively as Deputy
Sheriff Mark Sutterfield read them
a book entitled 'How Many Days
to America.'
After the reading, Lieutenant
Michael Morris asked the class
some questions to see if they un-
derstood what was being read to
them. The group seemed curious
and'each student got the answers
right.
Lt. Morrisencouraged the stu-
dents to read everything they see
because it would help them later
on in their lives.
"If you can read, it will take
you farther than sports or your
looks," the lieutenant told the stu-
dents.
Ms. Allen-Moore talked to the
children, too.
"You have to keep your focus

straight through the hearts of
Vero Beach.
Blue Devils senior Janoris
Jenkins caught the punt and ran
a 57-yard punt return nearly un-
touched into the end zone with
2:54 left in the second quarter. Pa-
hokee was up 13-0 at that point.
"We needed a big play," Jen-
kins said. "Someone needed to
step up and I just needed to play
how I play."
Jenkins had a major impact
on how the game turned out as
he scored another touchdown on
a 1-yard run in the fourth quarter.
Blue Devils junior running
back Vincent Smith had an out-
standing game himself, leading
the rushing attack with 129 yards
on 13 carries and a touchdown in
the third quarter.
+ "We're gonna focus on the
next game," Jenkins said. "We're
gonna give 100 percent in prac-
tice and play our best game in the
Muck Bowl."

conserve our water and be proac-
tive in addressing the impending
drought ahead," Ms. Wehle said.
"We will address these problems
now so we won't have to worry in
the future."
The district is anticipating that
lake levels will drop to between
seven and eight feet above sea
level. To prepare for the impend-
ing conditions, the temporary
pumps near the lake will be ret-
rofitted to accommodate the wa-
ter restrictions ahead. The pumps
will extend to the end of the water
intake pipe -- in other words, the
extension pipes will now accom-
modate the lake levels should it
ever,get to below eight feet.
According to Randy Smith,
the public information officer for
the water district, in the next few
weeks, all pumps throughout the
Lake Okeechobee area will be ret-
rofitted.
"Once the water goes below
the intake pipe, the pump doesn't
work anymore, so that's why
we're developing the extension,"
Mr. Smith said.
Ms. Wehle has some advice for
the public to follow.
"Plan for the worst, but hope
for the best,". Ms. Wehle said.
"Your future is in your hands."

positive," Ms. Allen-Moore said.
"You can either help or hinder
someone else. We're here to
help, not hinder."
According to Lt. Morris, the
partnership between the sheriff's
office and the elementary school
has two objectives: to deter the
perception that deputies are un-
approachable to citizens, and to
provide reading teachers a re-
source that focuses on improving
literacy in the area.
"As we go forward in outlining


After the game, Blue Devils
head coach Blaze Thompson told
the team that in order to win the
Muck Bowl this week, they have
to play a complete game and they
must be at their peak.
But Thompson wanted to zero
in on how this contest played
out.
"I'm pleased with the out-
come," the head coach said.
"Honestly, I didn't think Vero
Beach could move the ball at all
this game. Our defense was tai-
lor made for their offense. Vero
Beach couldn't tackle Jenkins. He
came in the game, took over and
ran it down their throats."
'Coach Thompson did admit
that Sheppard had an off game
but was very pleased that he and
Richardson played through their
sicknesses.
"It shows how much charac-
ter they have," Thompson said.
The Blue Devils defense al-
lowed only four first downs, had
six sacks, three of them came
from Brandin Hawthorne, and al-
lowed only 64 total yards on 44


opportunities within the Glades
region that will bridge and restore
community trust, partnering with
local schools is an invaluable if
not vital means of permeating a
positive community relationship,"
Lt. Morris said.
The lieutenant's vision is to
have one deputy visit Rosenwald
Elementary School Monday and
Tuesday of each week beginning
at 8:30 a.m. The deputy will be
assigned to a classroom and read
to the students from a book, ac-


plays. The offense finished with
259 yards on the ground and 320
total yards.
Pahokee, who is 9-0 heading
into the Muck Bowl, will try to
finish the regular season unde-
feated when they play the Glades
Central Raiders tomorrow night
at Effie C. Grear Field.
Glades Day 55, Moore Ha-
ven 20: The Glades Day Gators
finished with a win in district play,
spoiling Senior Night at Terrier
Field in Moore Haven.
Glades Day scored five rushing
touchdowns as the Moore Haven
Terriers allowed the Gators rush-
ing attack to amass 278 yards on
38 carries.
Moore Haven couldn't stop
the passing attack either, as
Glades Day junior quarterback Bo
Schlecter went 5-for-11 with 124
yards and two touchdowns.
Glades Day, 7-2 overall and 3-0
in District 6-1A, finishes the regu-
lar season on the road against Fort
Pierce Central tomorrow night.
Glades Central 45, Sun-
coast 0: The Glades Central
Raiders thoroughly dominated


cording to Lt. Morris.
"The interaction will carry
over within the community in
conquering the negative percep-
tions of deputies," Lt. Morris said.
According to Deborah John-
son, the elementary school's
principal, the presence of the
sheriff's officers is a strong posi-
tive element for the school.
"All of our students and staff
realize that the sheriff's officers
have our best interests at heart,"
Ms. Johnson said. "Every Mon-
day and Tuesday, the students
look forward to the sheriff's of-
fice coming to the school to read
to them."
The principal said that she
meets with every officer person-
ally.
"I have to know that the depu-
ties are embracing the fact that
they are here at the school," Ms.
Johnson said. "If the vibe I get
from the officers is not positive,
they can't come here."
The principal believes that a
positive environment at the ele-
mentary is paramount for the stu-
dents' success, she said that there
has been a marked improvement
in the attitude of the students.
The'literacy program will be
going on the entire school year,
according to the principal.
"We try to give our kids the
very best," Ms. Johnson said.

Suncoast in a tune-up game for
the Muck Bowl.
The Raiders defense allowed
only 60 total yards, while its of-
fense churned out five passing
touchdowns and its second rush-
ing touchdown of the season
from junior running back Anto-
nio McCloude.
McCloude led the rushing at-
tack with 95 yards on 10 carries
and a touchdown.
The Raiders scored twice
thanks to two punts from Sun-
coast.
The Raiders should have
scored at least 18 more points,
but three special-teams touch-
down from Travis Benjamin were
called back due to penalties.
Glades Central amassed 13 pen-
alties for 110 yards.
Glades Central, 9-0 overall and
4-0 in District 15-3A, will try to fin-
ish the regular season undefeated
when it hosts Pahokee in the
annual Muck Bowl showdown
tomorrow night at Effie C. Grear
Field.

What you see here is a stilling basin for the boat locks that come through Lake Okeechobee.
Boats would wait here to lock in and out of the lake. It is supposed to be filled with water
- the basin is actually three quarter miles mile from the lake. According to George Home,
a representative from the South Florida Water Management District, there is no water here
due to a lack of rainfall in the Upper Kissimmee Basin, which stretches from near Orlando to
Lake Okeechobee.

On Tuesday, October 30, a tractor fell into a canal on County
Road 880 near Nine Mile Bend. The only thing that can be
seen is the rear of a sugar cane wagon that accompanied the
tractor. The driver of the canal, 23-year-old Miriam Mondrag-
on, was rescued from the Palm Beach Canal by 28-year-old


Lee Sweet.

dragon.
According to Shannon Mc-
Neill -- the woman's employes at
McNeill Labor Management Inc.
-- Ms. Mondragon was headed
west on County Road 880 when
she became frightened after a
truck tried to pass her. She tried
to make a right turn near Nine
Mile Bend, but lost control of the
vehicle..
"Miriam ended up turning right
as the truck passed, but she didn't
give herself enough room to turn
over," Mr. McNeill said. "She ac-
cidentally turned too quickly."
The tractor that Ms. Mondrag-
on was driving and two sugar
cane wagons it was pulling went
straight into the water. After it
dove into the water, the only vis-
ible part of the vehicle was the
rear of the wagon, a 12-foot long
section that could be seen in the
water.
Mr. McNeill said that the Belle
Glade resident went through trac-
tor safety training the day before
the accident.
The training helped save her
life, Mr. McNeill believes, because
she was wearing her seatbelt at
the time of the accident.
"The seatbelt kept her from
getting knocked unconscious,"
Mr. McNeill said. "When Miriam
went to the bottom of the canal,
she was praying to a higher au-
thority that she gets out of the
canal alive."
According to Mr. Sweet, Ms.
Mondragon apparently got out
of the tractor through a broken
window.
As Mr. Sweet jumped into the
canal, he was swimming toward
the tractor and all of a sudden,

fields.
Students would earn degrees
in sugar technology.
"I think it will be a wonderful,
fun and successful project," Dr.
Robinson said.
Inquiries about the program
have come from as far away as
Brazil, according to the provost.
Classes are scheduled to begin in
the Spring of 2008,
To accommodate such lofty
aspirations, the college is plan-
ning to build an addition to the
Glades campus -- to be located
directly between the academic
campus and the Dolly Hand Cul-
tural Arts Center.
The college has requested a $7
million capital investment from
the state. Last year, that request
was vetoed by the governor, but
should be funded fully this year,
according to Dr. Robinson. The
provost said that all vetoed proj-
ects should be funded completely
the next fiscal year.
In order to complete the fund-
ing for the project, the college is
reaching out to its business part-
ners locally and elsewhere to le-
verage the monies that the state
should be providing.
Approximately $3 million
more in funding will have to be
raised.
Already, approximately


the woman popped up out of the
water.
Mr. Sweet admitted he became
afraid of the fierce currents.
"My legs felt like Jell-O and it
was tough to swim with my boots
on," Mr. Sweet said.
Mr. Sweet then grabbed the
woman as she bear-hugged his.
neck.
"After I pushed Miriam off and
spun her back toward my chest, it
helped me to swim better and get
both of us to safety," Mr. Sweet
said.
Shortly thereafter, a crew mem-
ber from McNeill Labor Manage-
ment took his belt off, tossing it
to the canal like a rope. Both Ms.
Mondragon and Mr. Sweet were
out of the canal, escaping serious
injury.
Mr. Sweet was not injured, but
Ms. Mondragon suffered minor
cuts to her right wrist area and
her right arm. She was taken to
Glades General Hospital for treat-
ment and was later released.
Ms. Mondragon hopes to be
released back to work soon, ac-
cording to her employer. She will
likely be reassigned to a different
duty when she returns to work.
Mr. Sweet, a new hire of the
company, was still grasping what
happened.
"Tuesday was my second day
on the job and I couldn't believe
it," Mr. Sweet said. "It makes me
feel good that I rescued some-
one but I hope something like
that never happens again. It was
scary."
Mr. Sweet had some words of
advice to give to the community.
"Make sure if you're-in a-vehi-
cle, wear your seatbelt and other
than that, don't run into the ca-
nal," Mr. Sweet said.

$500,000 has been donated or
pledged to the project through
companies and other charitable
groups.
The 28,000 square foot addi-
tion is expected to house current
programs, as well as the sugar in-
stitute courses, as well as provide
additional office space for admin-
istrators and staff.
One of the ideas is being con-
sidered is the possibility of locat-
ing courses previously offered at
the now-closed West Tech school.
Those courses include construc-
tion, diesel programs, and welding
programs, among other offerings.
Dr. Robinson is hoping that the
community will support the idea
and help to close the gap in fund-
ing.
Recently, the college received
a $400,000 contribution when a
prominent individual in the area
passed away. Some of the money
will be used to pay for the tuition
of the entire first class of students
taking the courses. The money
will pay for the courses, books
and other expenses, according to
the provost.
"I am so excited," said Dr.
Robinson. "This building will
make history for. the college in
the Glades."
According to her, the construc-
tion project would be the first sig-
nificant construction investment
by the college in nearly 30 years.

Tigers sail past St. Andrews; Sweep their district


By Jeff Barwick
CLEWISTON After opening
the season with five straight non-
district losses, the Tigers com-
pleted their sweep of their district
play by defeating Boca Raton
St. Andrews, 28-14. Already de-
clared District 2A-6

field advantage \" i
for the first game "--". :
of the playoffs,
Clewiston dominated the Scots
early and then muddled through
the later stages of the game. The
Tigers will host Bishop Verot, run-
ner-up in District 2A-5, on Nov. 16,
at Cane Field as the playoffs begin.
The Vikings feature a potent pass-
ing game and will present a tough
challenge for the Tigers.
Junior tailback Darris Hughes
led the Tigers by scoring all four
touchdowns and piling up 213
yards rushing on the night. After a
scoreless opening period, Clewis-
ton racked up three scores in the
second period on runs by Hughes
of 5, 6, and 56 yards. He came
back to get the final Tiger score on
a 32 yard dash in the third period.
Tiger kicker Will Davis converted
all of the extra points.
The first half was nothing but
STigers. Although unable to score
in the opening period, Clewiston
controlled the ball and only al-
lowed the Scots four offensive
snaps and no first downs. The
second period was more to the

Tigers' liking as they scored early
when Hughes carried off tackle
for five yards. After holding the
Scots and forcing a short punt,
the Tigers quickly covered 34
yards. A 22 yard scamper by quar-
terback Isandro Marquez got the
offense to the 17 and Hughes got
the final six yards a few plays later.'
Another short punt by the Scots
and an eight yard return by Zactk
Waddell gave the Tigers the ball at
the Scots' 47. After a Tiger hold-
ing penalty and two snaps that re-
sulted in only a yard, Hughes took
the ball off the left side, broke
clear and raced wide for a 52 yard
score. The Scots were held to no
first downs and only 12 yards of
total offense in the half.
The second half featured some
liberal substitutions by the Tigers
and the play got a little careless.
The Scots were unwilling to lie
down and kept fighting to stay in
the game. Taking possession near

midfield after a short Marquez
punt, St. Andrews mounted their
first drive of the game and quarter-
back Joey Lancos on a yard sneak
with 2:06 remaining in the third


period. The Tigers roared right
back as Colin Ricketts returned
the kickoff 33 yards. From his tail-
back position, Ricketts then ran
for 13 and 7 yards before Hughes


reeled off his 32 yards scamper for
the Tigers final score of the game.
The Tigers lost the ball twice
on fumbles in the final period
and the Scots took advantage of


the first one that, they got at the
Clewiston 22 yard line. It only
took them three plays to score to
make the score 28-14. The Scots
put a scare into the Tigers when
they recovered the second fumble
at the Tiger 40. But penalties for
delay of game and holding set the
Scots back and the Tiger defense
held to keep the game safely out
of reach.
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, 'Well, a win is a win but we
played sloppy in the late stages.
We were substituting trying to
give our two way players a break
and turned the ball over twice."
Starting Tiger tailback Colin
Ricketts was the workhorse for the
offense and had 104 hard earned
yards on 23 carries. The Tigers
played without Delvin Hughes,
who began the year as a solid
Division I prospect, who was per-
manently removed from the team
prior to the game for disciplinary.
reasons relating to school policy.
The Tiger defense was domi-
nating in most stages of the game.
Defensive end Willie Armstrong
finished the night with 10 solo
tackles, a couple of assists, two
quarterback sacks and was in the
Scots backfield all night. Line-
backer Alex Rubio and corner-
back Allen Gaines both had pass
interceptions, with Gaines return,
ing his for 21 yards.
Clewiston travels to
Okeechobee this week to take on
very good Brahmans team in the
regular season finale.

Perils of


prosperity

By Jackie Miller
First Christian Church, Clewiston
"What this country needs is a
good depression", a bitter busi-
nessman said recently. He was
joking of course. No one aware
of the human misery brought
about by the economic ordeal
known as the Great Depression
of the 1930's would seriously ad-
vocate a depression as a remedy
for America's ills.
There's no denying that many
of America's problems are the re-
sult of an inability to handle mate-
rial abundance. But that's not an
economic problem. That's a spiri-
tual problem. The cure isn't de-
pression, or any other economic
remedy. The cure is repentance!
America must be turned to God!
"Every good gift and every per-
fect gift is from above, and cometh
down from the Father of lights,"
(James 1:17). A terrible judgment
awaits those who forget this truth,
who wallow in the blessings of
God but refuse to worship the
God of blessings. I call it the "Peril
of Prosperity." The Lord issued a
grim warning about this peril in
Deuteronomy 8:11-20., Through
His servant Moses He said: "Be-
ware that thou forget not the
Lord thy God, in not keeping His
commandments, and His judg-
ments, and His statutes, which
I command thee this day: Lest
when thou has eaten and art full,
and has built goodly houses, and
dwelt therein; and when thy herds
and they flocks multiply, and thy
silver and thy gold is multiplied,
and all that thou has is multiplied:
Then thine heart be lifted up, and
thou forget the Lord thy God...and
thou say in thine heart, "My power
and the might of mine hand hath
gotten me this wealth. But thou
shalt remember the Lord thy God:
for it is He that giveth thee power
to get wealth..."
"And it shall be, if thou do at
all forget the Lord thy God, and
walk after other gods, and serve
them, I testify against you this day
that ye shall surely perish. As the
nations which the Lord destroy-
eth before your face, so shall ye
perish; because ye would not be
obedient unto the voice of the
Lord your God."
America has eaten and is full.
It has goodly houses and dwelt
therein. It herds and flocks, its sil-
ver and gold have multiplied. But
+- America has fallen victim to the
Peril of Prosperity. Morally, Amer-
ica is bankrupt. Marriages have
dissolved like snowballs on a hot
stove and many don't even bother
with marriage but live together
without it. Sexual licentiousness is
rampant. Homosexuality is wide-
spread and many look upon it as an
acceptable lifestyle, but God calls
it an abomination. Abortion has
become an accepted alternative
to responsible, loving parenthood.
(Millions in tax money is used for
women who say they are too poor
to pay for their own.) Alcohol is
and has been a serious problem
with estimates of the number of
"problem drinkers" ranging in the
millions. Illegal Drugs continues
to be a major problem.
America doesn't need to re-
peat the Great Depression. Ameri-
can needs to return to the Great
Physician!


Always do remember the treasure you are


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I know a number of people
who are big into yard sales. They
believe that one person's trash
is another per-
son's treasure. .
I believe it. The .
Clewiston Gar- -
den Club had
its annual rum- '
mage sale last .'.."
Saturday you .
should have
seen the trea- John
sures they had! Hicks
Even more, you
should have seen the way people
snatched up some of those trea-
sures!
I shouldn't talk. Many times in
my childhood I gleaned treasures


from the neighbors' trash pile be-
cause I figured I could find some
use for that perfectly good "stuff"
they were tossing out. There
were times that I found treasures
that we kept for months before
my dad sneaked them back out
for the garbage collector to pick
up.
It's hard for me to throw
things away, because I always
get to thinking that some day I
.will have a need for that particu-
lar item. But it can get extreme.
I recently went into our garage
and found things I had forgotten
we had and others that I hadn't
used for years. Sometimes I get a
little envious of those who have a
philosophy that if it hasn't been
used in a year, they need to get
rid of it. If it hasn't been missed,
it's going out the door. If there is.
no current use for it, it's gone. It


is good that some groups have
rummage sales, because it is an
inspiration for mne to clean out
the closets of things I don't need
or use anymore.
These scenarios are also
played out in our relationships.
There are those who look at life
in a way that they never want to
throw away or give. up much of
anything. If they aren't careful,
they might find that friendships
arid relationships are neglected
or sacrificed when their lives be-
come full of clutter and activities.
Sometimes these relationships
are even forgotten.
On the other side, there are
those who want to dump a rela-
tionship at the first sign of trouble
figuring them a waste of time. If
they have no use for it, then it's
gone. .
In reality, most of us know


someone, maybe a friend, a
family member, or a colleague
at work, who might be thinking
that his or her life is useless or of
no worth because to them, no
one cares. Maybe they have been
dumped on, maybe they just feel
like trash because they feel they
have been forgotten or aren't
worth the effort.
Fortunately for us, God figures
that each person is worth the ef-
fort. God doesn't throw people
away and He doesn't forget about
us. According to God, everyone
is a treasure. And yes, believe it
or not, God does go through the
trash piles of life looking for those
of us who have been trashed or
discarded, giving the promise
of restoration and new life. God
doesn't see the trash; He sees the
potential of treasure. Even more,
God literally makes treasures out


of trash. Many times, we are the
instrument God uses to make this
transformation possible.
In the book of Genesis we are
told that we were created in His
image and God did the creating.
God created us to live in close re-
lationship with Him not just to
know about Him. If you have any
doubts about how far He would
go for you or how much He
cares for you and wants to be in
relationship with you, remember
what the Bible says happened six
hours one Friday in the book of
John.
God laid down His life for all
of us because He loves all of us.
God doesn't make junk; so let's
not live junky lives. God makes
treasures. Remember the trea-
sure that you are. Share it with
others.

Preferences in faults and sins: who said there are favorites?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I recall a story about a mother
who was worried about her son
who seemed a bit nervous. The
doctor told her "I-e seems pre-
occupied with his hands." The
mother replied "I don't know
why, I wash them for him eight
times every day."
At times we get "pre-occu-
pied" with something and fail
to realize we've lost perspective.
One person complained about
lack of enforcement in one of the
federal agencies and was told that
terrorism is a priority right now,
not some of the other "crimes."
I remember when everyone was
supposed to have a fall-out shel-
ter because of the possibility of
atomic war. Today, they are more
of a curiosity, but the possibility
of atomic war is just as real as
ever.
Human nature seems to latch


onto something and become pre-
occupied with it; as is one sort of
tragedy or fear is greater than an-
other. It may be so for awhile, but
not so for the
long run. In so-
ciety or religious
circles, we seem -
to have times of ''
"pet sins" as if
one sin is worse
than another
and certain ones
can be blissfully Samuel S.
ignored for the Thomas
time being. Ev-
eryone is against murder and
abuse, as they rightly should be.
Nobody gets too upset when a
scandal hits the papers and we
seem to find it more amusing
than sinful when someone is
caught in a compromising situa-
tion.
Stealing is usually regarded as
wrong; especially if you are the
victim, but all right if it is from
somebody that is not liked or


from a government. In reality, our
view of "sinfulness" is tempered
by cultural overtones; the Lord
didn't rank-order the Ten Com-
mandments or suggest we should
concentrate on some but not oth-
ers. We can shrug our shoulders
and recognize Paul's analysis of
the whole mess: "There is no one
righteous, not even one (Romans
3;10)." It seems while we are
pointing out the sins of others,
they, return the favor and point
out ours; both of us, though, fall
short. Paul concludes that we
will not be "declared righteous"
in God's sight by "observing the
law (or that portion we happen
to like) but rather "through the
law, we become conscious of sin
(v.20)" I think this is a religious
way of saying that we aren't go-
ing to make it by choosing what
rules we would like to obey and
condemning others for violating
them; by feeling good because
we respect our favorites and ig-
nore the ones we secretly (or not


so secretly) like to commit; then
finding someone to look down on
because they break our favorites,
but may do better with the ones
that cause us problems., What's
the "antidote?" Paul goes on in
Romans to say "There is no dif-
ference, we all fall short (v.22)."
If there is "justification" it is to
be understood as we understand
those we love in our own lives;
and then realizing that God un-
derstands that way, too. I have to
recognize that the people I love
are imperfect and not capable of
being the ideals that I'd always
like them to be.
Someone recently shared with
me about how they "blew up" at
a friend who made a "stupid mis-
take" and "should have'known
better." I suggested that the tar-
get of the anger was not capable
of doing what once might have
been done; age had taken its' toll.
Demands and expectations were
made that are no longer possible
to meet.


Every parent must ask, is it too late for my kids?


By Pastor Brian Hamrick
First Baptist Church, Clewiston
I thought "pasturing" a church
was hard, until I became a par-
ent. There is this tremendous
burden that the Christian parent
feels, and also, the temptation
to great frustration when things
don't go well or smoothly. At the
youngest of ages, we may find
it a struggle just to get them to
eat or to be potty trained. As they
grow up so fast, we find there are
new issues around the corner,
and those seem to hit us before
we know it.
Because of the difficulty of the
task, I'm afraid so many Christian
parents despair in their own guilt
and failures over the challenges


they've had with their children.
And when those feelings come,
we assume that there is nothing
we can really do about it, kids
will be kids, people say (or teens
will be teens). And so we private-
ly pray for God's help, though we
publicly retreat from being spiri-
tual leaders in their lives- we sur-
render, perhaps because we are
tired of the pushback we may get
from them, perhaps because we
only want things to be easy and
convenient- which parenting can
never be.
Thomas Scottwas well known
for his happy and successful fam-
ily. When he was asked about
how this came about, he said,
"I have always sought for them


in the first place, the kingdom of
God and his righteousness." Too
often, we make the mistake of
letting what our children want to
do be the most valuable things
in their life. For our spiritual in-.
fluence toward them to be effec-
tive, everything else in life needs
to be subservient to dealing with
their own hearts before God in a
regular way.
Is it too late for your kids?
No. That is a lie straight from
hell. The Bible says, "I can do all
things through him [Jesus] who
gives me strength." (Philippians
4:13) If you feel too weak to ac-
complish anything in this area,
you are probably depending on
yourself too much and are en-


tertaining too much doubt and
unbelief. Our children and teens
are still being shaped. It's never
too late to have good spiritual-
influence in their lives. But we
must not procrastinate, or think
it is someone else's primary job.
No one can do it for you- it is a
job that cannot be outsourced
well. No one is in a better place
to train a child in righteousness,
even if you feel like right now
your child does not listen to you.
God has called you to be a prima-
ry means of grace in your child's
life. Whatever failures you have
made, confess them to the Lord
and get on with the business of
being spiritually influential in the
lives of your children and teens.


I know of a wonderful mother
whose household finances were
always in disarray. Many a time
the electricity was about to be cut
off and her husband would be fu-
rious. His explosions didn't help,
but he didn't offer to take charge
of paying the bills, either. We all
have our good areas and our
not-so-good ones; God seems to.
know this and provides a recog-
nition about it all when He pro-
claims through His apostle that
we are "justified freely through
His grace (v.24)" and that we are
justified ultimately by our faith.
Thanks be to God for that: now
we have something to really be
thankful for, and something to
help us recognize that others
have their faults as we have
ours. Most of all, God is great
enough to see beyond it all and
love us anyway. That's really a
great reason for going to Church
and giving thanks. He doesn't
need to rank-order, overlook, or
ignore, but loves anyway.

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


p r..& --






easy way to share the warmth and joy of the holiday
season with friends and neighbors. Printed on
weather-resistant paper with waterproof, "sunfast"
inks, the Nativity display includes the 14 figures pic-
tured plus instructions for building the stable. The
camels stand about five feet tall.
The only materials needed are the posters, a few
sheets of exterior plywood, waterproof glue, paint
and sealer. The whole family can help put the figures
together in a weekend or two.
To build the display, just glue the posters onto ply-
wood, saw around the outer edges and paint the sides
and backs black. Make stakes or stands from the
remaining plywood or galvanized pipe and set the
display up where desired.

Nativity Display (No. 7)... $49.95
Table-top Nativity plan (No. 884)... $9.95
Catalog (pictures hundreds of projects) ... $2.00
Please add $4.00 s&h (except catalog-only orders)

U.S. Sugar begins 2007-2008 sugarcane harvest


CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar
began its 2007-08 sugarcane har-
vest season, delivering sugarcane
to the Company's newly enlarged
and automated sugar manufac-
turing facility that has a process-
ing capacity of 42,000 tons of
cane per day. The company plans
to harvest approximately 162,946
acres, yielding an estimated 6.2
million tons of sugarcane and 13
million cwt of refined sugar. This
crop will be similar in size to last
year's crop, with residual dam-


age from the hurricanes and the
drought.
"The culmination of three
years of hard work and strategic
planning amidst ongoing op-
erations, our Clewiston facility
is now the world's largest fully
integrated cane sugar mill and re-
finery," said Robert Coker, Senior
Vice President, Public Affairs. "It
will allow us to be the lowest
cost sugar producer in the United
States and a lower cost producer
than Mexican sugar facilities." -


According to Mr. Coker, free
.trade agreements and negotia-
tions with additional sugar-pro-
ducing foreign countries mean
more foreign sugar entering the
U.S. market. The increased ef-
ficiency of the new milling op-
erations is aimed at ensuring that
U.S. Sugar is competitive into tihe
future.
The construction project,
termed "Breakthrough" for its
dramatic consolidation and trans-
formation of the Company's
two older raw sugar milling op-


erations, incorporates the best
sugar technology from around
the world. Initiated in October
2005, it was at one time the larg-
est private industrial construction
project in the United States. The
project was completed in three,
one-year phases concurrent with
ongoing harvest and milling ac-
tivities. Phase III, which included
the demolition of 90 major pieces
of equipment, installation of 262
new pieces of equipment and
284,000 construction man-hours,
was completed just before the


harvest began.
"The entire Breakthrough
project was planned and imple-
mented in 36 months. It's too
bad we weren't able to get the
weather on the schedule. We
have a state-of-the-art processing
facility, but our crops are still re-
covering from multiple hurricane
damage during the worst drought
on record," Coker said.
U.S. Sugar's railroad network
will deliver approximately 1000
40-ton railcars of sugarcane from
area sugarcane fields to the Clew-


iston Mill each day. Inside the .-
mill, the automated system is 'obt "
erated from a centralized control
room with flat screen televisions
monitoring the major processes.
The cane stalks are crushed to
release the juice from the fibrous
stalk. While the juice is processed
into sugar, the remaining, cane
fiber serves as the clean, renew-
able energy source for both the.
raw sugar mill and adjacent cane
sugar refinery, making the pro-
cess extremely energy efficient.


Compensation rate reduction to help small businesses


TALLAHASSEE The Na-
tional Federation of Independent
Business/Florida applauds the
Office of Insurance Regulation's
approval, of the National Council
on Compensation Insurance's fil-
ing for worker's compensation
rates. The filing provides for a de-
crease of 18.4 percent on average
in the workers' compensation in-
surance rate ard is estimated to
produce a savings of over $700
million. The new rate is effective


Jan. 1,2008.
"This is great news for Flori-
da's business community," said
NFIB/Florida Executive Director,
Bill Herrle. "For five years, the
workers' compensation rate has
continued to decrease, which
positively impacts business
around the state," he said.
The rate reduction was imple-
mented based on legislative re-
forms of 2003. NFIB lobbied hard
during that legislative session to


ensure that the rights of small
business and .employers were
represented and protected.
NFIB/Florida's state director
in 2003 Steve Birtman praised
leaders of the House and Senate
for passing the measure, stating,
"The Legislature's commend-
able action promises to greatly
enhance the state's economic de-
velopment and well-being."
Director Herrle says that five
years later is a good time to look


back on the package and recog-
nize positive the impact that it
had.
Mr. Birtman was correct in
predicting the impact the 2003 re-
form would have on small busi-
ness, Mr. Herrle said. "It was a
hard vote facing legislators then,
who were up against several in-
terests, including the trial lawyers
who were fighting against a cap
on attorney's fees, but real re-
form prevailed."


The announcement of an 18.4
percent rate decrease marks the
largest reduction since the sys-
tem was reformed in 2003. Since
then, the workers' compensation
rate has been reduced by over 50
percent statewide. Reform was
needed to the system as a result
of skyrocketing rates and lack of
availability. Florida's businesses
were paying among the highest
premium rates in the nation for
workers' compensation rates,


with injured workers receiving
minimal benefits.
"We have come a long way in
alleviating the burden of workers'
compensation rates on Florida's
small businesses, Mr. Herrle said.
"The reduction in rates is allow-
ing employers across Florida to
more easily focus on growing
their business and protect the
livelihoods of themselves and
their employees."


Consumers may benefit from recent interest rate cut


ATLANTA, GA The recent
decision by the Federal Open
Market Committee to cut the fed-
eral funds rate by .25 percent to
4.50 percent is designed to stimu-
late the economy and could help
consumers by lowering payments
on various types of loans.
Consumer Credit Counseling
Service (CCCS) of Greater Atlanta,
Inc., offers some tips for under-
standing the benefits that lower
interest rates can have on your
financial situation.
When the Federal Reserve
lowers interest rates, banks fol-


low suit. Commercial banks usu-
ally follow the Federal.Reserve's
actions by lowering their prime
interest rates. Watch to see if your
bank cuts rates on various loans.
If you have any high-interest rate
loans, or those with an adjustable
rate, speak with a loan officer to
see if you can get a fixed-rate loan
at a lower interest rate.
Lower interest rates allow
consumers to consolidate debt.
Consider consolidating high-in-
terest balances into one low, fixed
monthly payment. You can count
on a predictable payment that
can eliminate your debt at the end


of the term. By saving on interest,
you can keep the unused funds
for home improvements, medi-
cal expenses or any other large
purchases. You can also use your
savings to repay the debt more
quickly.
Lower interest rates may favor-
ably affect the housing market:
The current oversupply of homes
nationwide is reducing the prices
of many homes, and the rate cut
could help lower interest rates on
fixed-rate mortgage loans. If you
have been waiting to buy a home,
now may be the time. Be certain
to check with your lender to see if


they will lower their interest rates
on 15 and 30-year fixed rate mort-
gage loans.
Possible lower rates on credit
cards: If you have one or more
credit cards, and you have been
making this payment and other
payments on time, you may qual-
ify for a lower interest rate. Check
with your lender to find out and
shop around for the best rate.
Home equity loans are af-
fected by interest rates, too: Many
people have home equity loans
where the interest rate is tied to
the prime lending rate. People


with home equity loans should
check to see if their current rate
will drop, as well as the monthly
payment. If the rate or the pay-
ment does not drop, it may be
worthwhile to call competing
banks to find a lower rate.
Continue to spend your mon-
ey wisely. With the holiday sea-
son just around the corner, now
is the time to be careful about
any spending. Take advantage of
interest rate cuts to consolidate
your debt and lower your pay-
ments, but make sure you do not
spend too much during the holi-
days. Develop a budget for your


holiday shopping and stick to it.

Governor Crist names November Hire a Veteran Month


TALLAHASSEE Recogniz-
ing the tremendous value of
those who have served our coun-
try, Florida Governor Charlie Crist
has proclaimed November as
Hire a Veteran Month. The Gover-
nor's proclamation reaffirms our
commitment to those who have
served our nation in times of war
and peace.
Coordinated by the Agency
for Workforce Innovation (AWI),
the Florida Department of Veter-
ans' Affairs and our workforce


partners, Workforce Florida,
Inc. and the regional workforce
boards, this initiative is designed
to remind employers of the un-
matched economic resource pro-
vided by our state's veterans.
"Florida is home to an esti-
mated 1.8 million veterans and
has the fastest growing veterans
population in the nation," said
AWI Director Monesia T. Brown.
"Our veterans possess valuable
leadership, business and techni-


cal skills gained while serving
their country. They are a versatile
and well-trained resource for em-
ployers and Florida is fortunate
to have ready access to such a
highly-skilled workforce."
AWI is committed to meeting
the needs of our heroic veterans
and our employers through high
quality programs and services.
Such programs include employ-
ment and training initiatives such
as the Veterans' Employment &
Training System, Hire a Vet, Citi-


zen Soldier and the Military Fami-
lies program. Last year AWI's One
Stop Career Centers served more
than 74,000 veterans, with more
than 12,000 recently separated
from the Armed Forces.
Florida's veterans come to
the workforce highly adept with
new technology, and are skilled
and trained in a variety of areas.
The state is committed tb bring-
ing employers and veterans to-
gether using the full network of
workforce partnerships and pro-


fessionals across the state, along
with the Employ Florida Market-
place, located online at http://
www.employflorida.com/.
"Demographics of veterans are
shifting with the return of young
troops who have served in the
Global War On Terrorism," said
Florida Department of Veterans'
Affairs Executive Director LeRoy
Collins Jr. "FDVA is working with
AWI to assist veterans looking for
employment to include lifetime
veterans' preference for those


seeking jobs with municipal,
county and state government."
SVeterans offer Florida's busi-
nesses the benefits of high skills,
education, leadership, maturity
and dedication learned or en-
hanced during their service in the
military. By bringing recognition
to our veterans, we honor not
only their military service but also
the contributions they bring to the
workforce. Join us in honoring
their commitment and sacrifice
to our country. Hire a veteran!
