Pahokee's State of the City


Approximately 300
people attend 'State
of the City' address
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Pahokee's State
of the City address, held at the
Pahokee Marina Campground,
proved to be a refresher for resi-
dents regarding the city's most
recent trials and tribulations.
Mayor J.P. Sasser delivered the
address and provided an overall


positive outlook regarding how
the city is progressing from year
to year.
The mayor fought back tears
while discussing the impact of
Hurricane Wijma. The storm
rocked the Pahokee area two
years ago.
"The City of Pahokee was liter-
ally landlocked for three days af-
ter Hurricane Wilma," the mayor
remembered. "The devastation
of the hurricane gave the city a
sense of inclusiveness to our citi-
zens. The only point of distribu-
tion for us was at the Pahokee


Middle-Senior High School."
What made the mayor finally
break down into tears, if only
briefly, was when he spoke of
a family in a nearby trailer park
who lost almost everything after
Wilma but was willing to help
clean up the city.
"That moment was when we
realized the city had come to-
gether," Sasser said.
With the citizens learning to
come together after the ordeal,
Mayor Sasser was able to smile
as he talked about many of the
improvements underway in the


Catch it tomorrow: Muck Bowl Banquet

INI/Naji Tobias
At the Muck Bowl Dinner, held on Nov. 7 at the Glades Central High School gymnasium,
the Pahokee Blue Devils football team was decked out in specially made white linen suits
with blue shirts. They definitely showed their 'Blue Devil' school spirit at the banquet.


At the Nov. 7 Muck Bowl Dinner at
Glades Central High School, Raider
seniors Eddie Poole and Deandre Hol-
ley were recipients of the highest grade
point average on the team. Clips of the
banquet will be shown.tomorrow on sat-
ellite television.


During the Muck Bowl Dinner, Glades
Central alum Jessie Hester was the
guest speaker. The football players from
Glades Central and Pahokee listened in-
tently as Mr. Hester told them specifical-
ly to "Know that athletics is a vehicle but
academics is that gas to get you going
ahead." After the speech, Mr. Hester re-
ceived an honorary plaque for his contri-
butions to Glades Central High School.

ner.


One thing viewers of the Muck Bowl will see
tomorrow night is the fact that the Glades
Central Raiders and Pahokee Blue Devils
football players were able to get along to-
gether and share a few laughs during the
Nov. 7 Muck Bowl Banquet, two days before
the Muck Bowl game. NFL Films will be airing
the Muck Bowl and the events leading up to
the game tomorrow night at 8 p.m. on the Ver-
sus Network. Viewers can watch the action on

up-and-coming city.
The mayor was happy when
he spoke of the future middle
school; Palokee currently has
the only combined middle and
senior high school in Palm Beach
County.
Looking ahead, however,
Mayor Sasser told the audience
that when the middle school
students leave the campus, there
will be a variety of health and
social services to replace the va-
cated space.
The mayor was also proud to
announce that for the first time,


the international baccalaureate
program will have its first high
school graduating class. The IB
program, beginning with Sev-
enth-graders, will soon expand
to include pre-school, according
to Mayor Sasser.
Other major projects the
mayor discussed include the
reconstruction of Prince : The-
atre, which is almost halfway
complete. Among many other
progressions, repaving for many
streets and drainage improve-

SMan accused



of burning a



7-year-old


Investigators say
suspect purposely
burned child

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE -- On Friday night,
Nov. 16, police say a child was
taught a cruel lesson that he
will never be able to forget.
Investigators with the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
claim that a suspect, upset at


the 7-year-old child for not
listening, took a hot iron and
burned the child's forearm to
teach him a lesson.
The burn mark went straight
through the small child's fore-
arm.
According to the sheriff's of-
fice, the suspect became upsel --
when the child knocked over
.an ironing board with the iron
sitting on top.
That's when investigators
say the suspect took the iron

WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY -- Shanika Small, a
Pahokee High School student,
was selected as Miss Muck


Bowl 2007. As a result, Shanika
will receive a scholarship offer
to Harvard University.
According to Deborah Ab-
ner, the pageant's coordinator,
the Miss Muck Bowl concept
came out of the idea that a
proper student representative
should selected to commemo-

after a peer-review evaluation
of the practice. Evaluations are
conducted by board-certified
physicians and medical physicists
who are experts in the field. They
assess the qualifications of the
personnel and the adequacy of
facility equipment. The surveyors
report their findings to the ACR's
Committee on Accreditation,
which subsequently provides the
practice with a comprehensive

Local family sets out on Santa run to Wounded Knee


By Betty Luckey
"Christmas for Wounded
Knee" is a project to collect toys
+ for.children and winter jackets
for all ages for Pine Ridge Indian
Reservation in South Dakota.
Pastor Stan Hollow-Horn of the
Wounded Knee mission has been
concerned that there were. no
provisions to share with the tribal
members who will attend their
annual Christmas dinner Dec. 23.
This holiday event is the only op-
portunity children have during the


year in which to receive a toy, and
this year, there are no toys avail-
able. Hollow-Horn also stated that
even the men are lacking jackets
warm enough for the winter cold
and are frequently seen outside in
only shirts.
Wounded Knee is the poorest
community within the poorest
reservation in the country. The sui-
cide rate is the highest in the USA
and the life expectancy for men is
46 and low 50's for women.
The Wounded Knee mission
will use the unfinished build-


ing they built next door for the
Christmas party and utilize space
heaters to warm the facility. There
have been no funds with which
to finish construction;but the roof.
and floors are completed with
hopes to have a kitchen and rest-
rooms in the future.
The Luckey family from the
Lake Placid area is collecting
items for the people and will lead
a caravan from south central Flor-
ida of horse trailers filled with toys
and jackets. The group will bring
their band and play Christmas


music, help with the dinner, and
distribute the gifts.
Anyone who wishes to donate
may contact Betty Luckey at (863)
697-1897 orLibby Luckey at (863)
243-1399 or drop off items at their
home at 1385 State Road 70 East,
Lake Placid, FL 33852.
Donations may be shipped

Alico Inc. reports its fourth quarter and annual earnings


LABELLE Alico, Inc. an-
nounced a net loss for the fourth
quarter of fiscal year 2007 of $7.4
million, or $1.02 per share, com-
pared with net earnings of $109
thousand, or $0.02 per share, dur-
ing the fourth quarter of fiscal year
2006. For the year ended August
31, 2007, the Company reported a
net loss of $13.8 million, or $1.88
per share. This compares with
net earnings of $6.5 million, or
$0.88 per share, during the fiscal
year ended August 31, 2006. 2007
fourth quarter and annual losses
were attributable to the accrual of
additional taxes of approximately
$5.9 million, or $0.80 per share,
and $26.2 million, or $3.56 per
share, for the fourth quarter and
fiscal year, respectively, related to
IRS audits of the Company's tax
returns for tax years 2000 2004.
Income before taxes was $19.4
million in fiscal year 2007 com-
pared with $12.7 million in fiscal
year 2006.
Operating revenues during the
fourth quarter of fiscal year 2007'
totaled $9.1 million compared
with $14.6 million for the fourth
quarter of fiscal year 2006. Op-
erating revenues for fiscal year
2007 were $134.8 million com-
pared with $77.4 million for fis-
cal year 2006. The increase was
primarilydue to increased oper-
ating revenues from agricultural

operations.
John R. Alexander, Chairman
and Chief Executive Officer, noted,
"The Company's earnings from
operations improved significantly
in fiscal year 2007 compared
with fiscal year 2006, as did pre-
tax income. The increased pretax
profit was mostly attributable to
increased citrus earnings. How-
ever, the impact of the tax accrual
was significant enough to turn
what would have been a banner
year into a loss. In spite of this, I
remain optimistic about the Com-
pany and look forward to putting
this tax matter behind us."
Addressing the highlights of
the divisional results, Mr. Alexan-
der noted that:
The Company's Bowen
Brothers subsidiary reported
operating profits of $0.9 million
during fiscal year 2007 compared
with a loss of $0.3 million during
fiscal year 2006, while the Citrus
Division reported operating profits
of $24.1 million during fiscal year,
2007, compared with $7.6 million
for fiscal year 2006. The increased
profitability for these two divisions
in fiscal year 2007 was due to im-
proved citrus prices caused by a
reduced supply of Florida citrus
during fiscal year 2007 compared
with fiscal year 2006;
Operating profits for the Sug-
arcane Division were $0.6 million


983.8858

CGC 060150


during fiscal year 2007 compared
with $0.4 million during fiscal
year 2006. The fiscal year 2007
increase was due to a larger sug-
arcane harvest for the Company
in fiscal year 2007 compared with
fiscal year 2006;
Operating profits for the
Ranch Division were $0.3 million
for fiscal year 2007 compared
with $0.8 million for fiscal year
2006. The decrease was due to
higher costs of raising calves for
sale, a reduction in the number
of calves born because of stress
to the cattle herd from hurricanes,
and a prolonged drought;
Operating profits for the Veg-
etable Division were $0.5 million
for fiscal year 2007 compared
with $1.0 million for fiscal year
2006. Prices for sweet corn were
lower in fiscal year 2007 than in
fiscal year 2006;
Operating profits for Alico
Plant World were $17 thousand
for fiscal year 2007 compared
with a loss of $1.1 million in fiscal
year 2006. Plant World serves as
an ancillary operation to Alico's
vegetable operations providing
transplants, although the majority
of its business is with third parties.
The Company continues to take
measures including customer
evaluations, staff reductions and
other cost cutting measures in ef-
forts to improve the profitability of


this segment;
Operating profits for the Sod
Division were $0.9 million for fis-
cal year 2007 compared with $0.7
million in fiscal year 2006. During
fiscal year 2007, the Company in-
creased its harvest of native sod
from cattle pastures, leading to
increased profitability for the divi-
sion; and
General and administrative
expenses were $13.5 million in
fiscal year 2007 compared with
$11.8 million in fiscal year 2006.
Increased regulatory compliance

costs and legal fees related to on-
going IRS audits were the largest
components of the increase.
Management expects contin-
ued profitability from the Compa-
ny's agricultural operations dur-
ing fiscal 2008 but at lower overall
levels than experienced in fiscal
year 2007, mostly due to expected
lower citrus prices resulting from
a larger Florida crop in fiscal year
2008.
At its Board of Directors meet-
ing on Sept. 28, 2007, the Board
adopted a new fiscal year end-
ing September 30. Alico plans to
release its earnings after market
close on the following dates for
the fiscal year ending Sept. 30,
2008:
First quarter 2/11/08, Second
quarter 5/12/08, Third quarter -
8/11/08, Fourth quarter 12/15/08

Broadband

feasibility

study opens
Florida Heartland REDI, Inc.
(FHREDI) completed a regional
broadband study in the spring of
2007. The study concluded that
Florida's Heartland is a strong
candidate for the launch of a Ru-
ral ISP (RISP).
Jerry and Deanna Pollard of
VistaNet are in the first phase of
deploying a.wireless broadband
network in Hardee, Highlands
and Okeechobee Counties. Their
plans are to extend the wireless
network from coast to coast and
deep into the Heartland Region.
Jerry and Deanna Pollard report,
"The feasibility study was a tre-
mendous help in making this
deployment of wireless broad-
band a reality." Jerry describes
the study as a valuable tool in his
decision making process. Accord-
ing to VistaNet staff, "phones are
ringing off the hook! We have a
waiting list a mile long of people
wanting to sign up for the ser-
vice."
The support for this valuable
study was provided by. the Gov-
ernors Office of Tourism, Trade,
and Economic Development and
Enterprise Florida. "The Office of
Tourism, Trade, and Economic
Development was very pleased
to provide assistance to the de-
velopment of the Study that
laid the foundation for this an-
nouncement." said Mary Helen
Blakeslee, Chief Analyst. "We are
very aware of the critical need
for reliable, high speed internet
access in rural communities and
believe this is a good step in the'
right direction."
"We are delighted that a local
vendor has recognized the oppor-
tunity and is providing the service.
Reliable access to Broadband
will begin to change the region
and offer many opportunities in
business and personal, lifestyle
enhancement," says Lynn Topel,
Executive Director of FHREDI.

SFWMD recommends tighter water restrictions


Water supply
must be protected
during dry season

KEY LARGO In response to
a wet season that did little to alle-
viate the ongoing water shortage,
South Florida Water Management
District staff Nov. 14 recommend-
ed that the District Governing
Board move to increase water
restrictions at their next monthly
Meeting on Dec. 13. Staff recom-
mendations included limiting
lawn irrigation to one day a week
Sand setting lower water use goals
for agriculture, golf courses and
nurseries.
"Caution, preparedness and
conservation must be our watch-
words as we enter the seven-
month dry season," said South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict Governing Board Member
Eric Buermann. "These measures
are needed to ensure that our
shared resources remain avail-
able despite this unprecedented
and severe water shortage."
Varying degrees of water re-
strictions have been in place
throughout South Florida since
the District Governing Board first
issued water shortage orders last
March. Successful application of
these restrictions is estimated to
have saved 11.7 billion gallons
of potable water from March 22,
when restrictions first went into
effect, through June 30. This sav-
ings was determined based on


"Caution, preparedness and conservation must be
our watchwords as we enter the seven-month dry
season. These measures are needed to ensure that
our shared resources remain available despite this
unprecedented and severe water shortage."
Eric Buermann,
South Florida Water Management
District Governing Board Member


data reported by 46 public water
utilities in Broward, Palm Beach,
Martin, St. Lucie, Collier, Lee and
Miami-Dade counties only..
Savings were most pro-
nounced on non-watering days.
For example, in the four weeks
before restrictions went into ef-
fect, Broward and Palm Beach
counties typically used 490 mil-
lion gallons of potable water on
Monday. During Phase III restric-
tions.in May, which cut watering
back to one day per week, po-
table water use dropped to 360
million gallons on Mondays.
During the ongoing water
shortage, the District has received
strong support from local govern-
ments enforcing residential water
restrictions. Since March, more
than 11,000 warning notices and
12,000 citations were issued by
city and county governments.
District officials also issued more
than 700 notices of violation and
collected $400,000 in civil penal-
ties.
"Every South Florida resident
can help stretch our water re-


sources by adhering to restric-
tions and also voluntarily stepping
up their in-home water conserva-
tion practices," said South Florida
Water Management District Ex-
ecutive Director Carol Wehle. "It
is highly probable that more strin-
gent water restrictions may be
necessary before the end of this
dry season."
The District is re-adjusting
water restrictions to reflect ongo-
ing conditions that are expected
to persist until the rainy season
returns in May 2008. In terms of
rainfall, the two-year period from
November 2005 to October 2007
ranks as the driest on record at
the District dating back to 1932.
The District received an average
of only 85.34 inches of rain during
this period, or 82 percent of the
historical average.
Recent rains have fallen pri-
marily on the East Coast, leaving
Lake Okeechobee without a pri-
mary source of water recharge.
The vast lake is the region's back-
up water supply, but remains crit-
ically low and could reach levels


between 7 feet and 8 feet this dry
season. As of Nov. 14, the lake
level was at 10.34 feet, or more
than one foot below its previous
historic low.
Current water shortage re-
sponse plans include maximiz-
ing the water storage capacity in
coastal canals to encourage aqui-
fer recharge, and retrofitting tem-
porary forward pumps installed
in Lake Okeechobee to ensure
water availability for lakeside
communities and agriculture.
Looking to the future, water
managers are initiating the rule
development process of a Dis-
trict-wide comprehensive water
conservation program. The pro-
gram will include stakeholder
and private sector involvement.
Its goal is to ensure the long-term
sustainability of the region's wa-
ter resources, increase water use
efficiency and curtail wasteful
water use practices through regu-
latory measures, education and
voluntary and incentive-based
programs.
The effort leads off with a Wa-
ter Conservation Summit sched-
uled to draw insight from the
experience of other organizations
that have developed and imple-
mented successful water conser-
vation programs in other regions
of the country. The summit is
scheduled for Tuesday, Dec. 4,
2007, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
A final report with recommenda-
tions will be presented during the
Governing Board meeting in April
2008, Water Conservation Month.

Bronson reminds consumers to check out charities


TALLAHASSEE Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging consumers to check
out charitable organizations be-
fore making any donations. As
the holidays get underway, chari-
ties are gearing up for their busi-
est time of the year. Many collect
about half their annual donations
in the short time between Thanks-
giving and New Years. There are
12,597 charitable organizations
registered with the state.
"The number of charities reg-
Sistered with the department con-
tinues to rise and the barrage of
requests for help that consum-
' ers receive can be daunting," Mr.
Bronson said. "But consumers
Shave a wealth of information at
their fingertips if they just take a
little time to research a charity to
ensure it is legitimate and that do-
nations are being spent in a pru-
dent manner."
Florida law requires most
charities that do business in the
State to register with the Depart-
Sment and provide financial infor-
mation about income and expen-
'ditures, regardless of where the
home base is. There are more
than 11,000 charities registered
with the state.
Consumers should always
make sure a charity is registered
before donating and check on the


"The number of charities registered with the
department continues to rise and the barrage
of requests for help that consumers receive can
be daunting. But consumers have a wealth of

Consumer Services Commissioner


complaint history. However, even
if charity is properly registered,
consumers should get informa-
tion about how donations are
spent. The Department does not
endorse any charity, even those
properly registered. The Depart-
ment also doesn't have authority
Sto dictate how a charity spends its
funds but does provide financial
information so consumers can
make educated decisions about
where to contribute. An annual
'Gift Givers' Guide' lists all reg-
istered charities and provides a
breakdown of how much is spent
on fundraising, how much on ad-
- ministrative costs such as salaries
and operating expenses; and how
much actually goes toward pro-
gram services. The guide also in-


cludes the names of professional
solicitors and consultant who are
working on behalf of a charitable
organization.
"Unfortunately, some con art-
ists don't think twice about taking
advantage of someone's gener-
osity and giving spirit" Bronson
warned. "That's why it is impor-
tant for consumers to find out if
a charity has registered or is ex-
empt. Failure to properly register
should raise a huge red flag with
consumers."
Bronson also provided the
following tips to consider when
deciding whether to donate to an
organization:
Don't judge an organization
based on an impressive sounding
name. Find out what it actually


does.
Be wary of emotional ap-
peals and organizations that have
only vague plans for spending the
funds they collect.
Never give cash. Write a
check payable only to an organi-
zation-not.an individual.
Be wary of organizations that
offer to send a 'runner' to pick up
your donation.
Reputable charities are will-
ing to wait for your contribution.
Consumers have the right to
ask for an organization's financial
report and its federal tax identifi-
cation number-the latter of which
you'll need to claim your contri-
bution as a tax deduction.
Ask the organization to send
you written information about its
activities.
If an organization is not reg-
istered, contact the Department.
Consumers can get informa-
tion about a charity by calling the
Department's Consumer Hotline
at 1-800-HELP FLA (435-7352).
Up to date information on chari-
ties is also'available by visiting the
Division of Consumer Services'
website at www.800helpfla.com.
People who have additional ques-
tions or want to report a poten-
tial scam should call the Depart-
ment's hotline.

Ways to keep holiday shopping spirits up


ARA Ah, the holidays: the
joy, the snow, the rush ... the
frustration, the crowds, the bad-
tempers, the rudeness! 'Tis the
season to be jolly, but how do
you survive the holiday shopping
Season while keeping your spirits
Bright at the same time?
Peggy Post, author of "Em-
ily Post's Etiquette" and 1-800-
FLOWERS.COM's etiquette ex-
pert offers 10 ideas:
1. Smile, Smile, Smile -- You
can't do it enough. Your face -
and your soul -- will thank you
for it.
2. Lose the 'Bah Humbug!' at-
Stitude. Yes, it will be crowded and
there will be lines, but don't let
that dampen the season's joie de
vivre.
3. "Please, Thank You and
You're Welcome." Make this your
mantra and you will smooth the
way for better service and create
a kinder, gentler atmosphere all
Around.
4. Be gracious. You have cir-
cled the lot for the fifth time when
you spy a space, only to see that


someone else is already waiting
for it. Be gracious. It's the right
thing to do.
5. A little patience, please.
Whether it's the checkout coun-
ter or airline counter, the rules are
the same: first come, first served,
one at a time.
6. Friendliness. Say "hello"
to the harried clerk behind the
counter and don't forget to smile.
It will make a difference in her at-
titude and could be the best part
of her day!
7. Complain to the proper
person. Yelling at a salesclerk be-
cause a store is out of an adver-
tised item only makes you look
foolish and rude. Ask to speak to
the manager. Frame your com-
plaint clearly and simply and no
venting, please.
8. Cell phones: They're useful
when trying to find out your Aunt
Mary's glove size, but turn them
off when you are working with
a sales clerk or checking out at a
register.
9. Shopping with children:
Don't!. It's best to arrange to


leave your children home when
it comes to holiday shopping. If
they must accompany you, make
sure they are well-rested and fed,
and bring along some small toy
to keep their attention.
10. Don't forget the lights -
- traffic lights, that is! People are
distracted this time of year. Stop
at the red lights and use your turn
signals to alert other harried, dis-
tracted shoppers.
Make this truly a season to be
jolly and take the stress out of
shopping.

Tax collector



launches 'Helmets



for the Holidays'


WEST PALM BEACH -- As the
holiday season nears, the Palm
Beach County Tax Collector is
supporting deployed service
men and women through For-
gotten Soldiers Outreach (FSO),
an organization that sends care
packages to soldiers who may
not otherwise receive packages.
Bryan Hyland, supervisor
of Field Services for the Palm
Beach County Tax Collector and
architect of the holiday fund-
raising effort, has organized a
campaign called "Helmets for
the Holidays."
The tax collector's office
will sell the FSO postcards to its
employees for $1 each to write


an encouraging or inspirational
message to a soldier.
These postcards will be col-
lected and included with the
care packages sent to the troops
during the holidays. The pro-
ceeds will help pay for postage
to send the care packages.
The "Helmets for the Holi-
days" plan is so popular that
many companies around the
county are adopting the fund-
raising program.
Organizations interested in
participating in the "Helmets
for the Holidays" program can
contact Sue Beard at info@for-
gottensoldiers.com or by calling
(561)281-5465.

History project to connect students to veterans


PALM BEACH GARDENS -
-Congressman Tim Mahoney
(FL-16) has announced the start
of the Veterans' History Project
effort in Florida's 16th Congressio-
nal District. The Veterans History
Project is an initiative run through
the Library of Congress to collect
and preserve wartime stories.
Congressman Mahoney will con-
nect high school social studies
and TV production students with
veterans in the eight counties in
his district to interview and record
the veterans' stories. The students


will screen the veterans' stories
in Spring 2008 and then send the
interviews to the Library of Con-
gress for preservation in the na-
tional archives.
"The Veterans History Project
is vital to ensuring that the he-
roic service of our brave men and
woman will not be forgotten,"
said Congressman Mahoney. "I
hope that our veterans recognize
that it is important to tell their
stories to our youth so our next
generation learns that freedom is
not free."


The Veterans History Project
was authorized by Public Law 106-
380 and'signed into law by Presi-
dent Clinton on Oct. 27, 2000.
Since taking office, Congress-
man Mahoney has been work-
ing with his colleagues to pass
meaningful legislation that gets
our veterans the care they need
and eases the burden on military
families. He was proud to support
an $8 billion increase in Veterans
Administration funding, which is
the ;largest increase for Veterans
in our nation's history. Mahoney


has cosponsored legislation to im-.
prove and expand Veterans health
and education benefits, formed
a Veterans Advisory Council to
communicate directly with the
veterans of Florida's 16th District,
and regularly assists veterans in
obtaining the benefits they de-
serve. The Congressman regularly
visits wounded soldiers from our
community at Walter Reed Army
Medical Center in Washington
and fought for a 3.5 percent pay
raise for our troops, which the
President has threatened to veto.

Plan aheac
The holiday season brings par-
ties and special foods making it
difficult for many people to stick
to a healthy eating plan. A little
advance planning can help you
avoid gaining holiday weight.
Get enough sleep. There's
always a lot to do during the holi-
day season and it's tempting to
stay up later. If you are tired, you
may be more likely to overeat.
Drink water. Sometimes you
might experience what you think
are hunger pains are actually due
to thirst. Between meals, before
you eat anything, drink a glass
of water and wait a few minutes
before eating.
Be aware of the calories in
beverages. Holiday treats such
as eggnog and punch may be
high in calories. Alcoholic drinks
are especially high in calories
- about 200 calories or more per
drink.
Remember to exercise. If
you are stressed over holiday
plans, exercising may actu-
ally help you sleep and give you
more energy.
If you are going to a party,
eat a salad or some low-fat pro-
tein before you go. If you take the
edge off your appetite before you
go, you are less likely to overin-
dulge on high calorie holiday
goodies.
Rather than deny your-
self your favorite holiday treats,
choose a few and allow yourself
small portions. That way you
won't feel "deprived."
Enjoy holiday foods slowly.
Really enjoy each bite. Remem-
ber, all things in moderation.
If you attend a potluck
meal, make your contribution a
healthy one by bringing a salad
or fresh fruit. That way you will

Benefit relay helps all to celebrate life


By Amanda M. Pacheco
On Sept. 6, the Relay for Life
kicked off the relay season. There
were over 80 people at the event!
Clewiston Middle School do-
nated its cafeteria as well as its
cheerleaders. It was a festive and
enthusiastic night.
Everyone celebrated survivors,
remembered those who lost their
battle, and talked about fighting
back against cancer.
Chairman David McClusky put
out a challenge to all of the teams,
that signed up that night to make
this the best relay that Clewiston
has ever seen! He also presented


Drew Sherman's parents, Marga-
ret and Keith Stiles, with a plaque
for all of his hard work and dedi-
cation with the Relay For Life.
Drew Sherman lost his battle
with cancer, but he is remem-
bered and he gives everyone a
reason to fight back.
There was also a poem read
by Sonia Reyna during the lumi-
naria recognition that told about
passing on but never forgetting.
The VFW Post 4185 donated
$1,000 and they are also going to
be this year's luminaria sponsor!
Jim Eldrige was the guest
speaker; he is a survivor of can-
cer and the volunteer director for


the state of Florida for the Relay
For Life.
The kickoff was phenom-
enal and the organizers thank
the sponsors for helping with
the event: CVS, Walmart, China
Buffet, Bellos, Hungry Howies,
Sonny's Bar-B-Q, Beef O'Bradys,
WAFC, Clewiston News, VFW,
Pam's Plumbing, B.J. Byrd, Julia
Leyva, and the Clewiston Middle
School staff and cheerleaders:.
So far there are 22 teams
signed up for the Relay for Life
on March 7 and 8. If you are inter-
ested in the Relay for Life, please
contact chairman David McClusky
at (863) 983-5060.


What those food labels mean!


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Food labels can be confusing
and many of us simply don't un-
derstand what all the claims really
mean. Most people know high
fiber and low fat are good, but
what do low and high mean?
If we stick to whole foods in
their original state (think fruits and
veggies), we don't have to worry
about labels but most of us just
can't eliminate foods packaged in
boxes, cans and jars.
Let's look at sodium. Low so-
dium means it has less than 140
mg per serving. Very low sodium
means less than 35 mg and salt
-free or sodium-free means less
than 5 mg per serving.
Some foods have naturally
occurring sodium. For example,
broccoli has 55 mg in a serving
but it is certainly a healthy food.
So while foods have natural sodi-
um in them, make sure you read
the labels on canned and frozen
veggies as they can vary greatly in
the amount of added salt.
What about high fiber? To be
considered a high-fiber product, a
serving must have at least 5 grams
of fiber.
The words rich in or excellent
source may also be used. They
mean the product has at least
20 percent of the recommended
daily value.
For example, oranges are an
excellent source of vitamin C be-
cause they provide 130 percent of
the recommended daily value per
serving.
What about the words good
source of on the label? Good
means it provides at least 10 per-
cent of the recommended daily
value. For example, green beans
are a good source of vitamin C
because a serving gives us 10 per-
cent.
The food label is a great tool
but we need to work on under-
standing what it tells us.

Look for items that have a
short list of ingredients and read
that list.
If it has high fructose corn syr-
up, that's sugar.
If it has partially hydrogenated
oils, that's trans fat. A product
may say it's low fat, but be high
in sugar. It does take practice to
know what all the claims mean.
Think about a food label on an
apple it would say apple.


Then check out a bag of chips,
a box of cookies or other pro-
cessed food and see if you can
pronounce some of the ingredi-
ents.
Look at a bag of frozen plain
veggies and then look at one that
has an added sauce like a butter
sauce. It doesn't say corn and but-
ter. Check it out.
Here's a final thought: if you
can't read it, don't eat it.

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.
"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.
Nearly 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 l1ss from diabetic retinopatihy 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-
merit.

"This grant will allow us to im-
merse Hendry County in a. 'Big

Tigers stun Bishop Verot and advance in playoffs


By Jeff Barwick
When Clewiston took the field
Friday night against Bishop Verot,
they were underdogs by a wide
margin.
Bishop Verot was 7-3 on the
season and featured a potent
passing game.
Pass defense had not been one
of the Tiger fortes this season and
their 4-6 regular season record
told the rest of the story.
However, the Tigers were not
into predictions, forecasts and
water that had already passed un-
der the bridge. They showed up
to play football, and play football
they did, whipping the Vikings
26-13 to advance to the Class 2A
Regional playoff semifinals.
The Tigers will host a very
good Tampa Catholic team at Fri-
day night at Cane Field.
The Tigers got off to a shaky
start and at the end of the first
period it seemed that the predic-
tions had been right on target.
The Vikings took the opening
kickoff and marched to the Tiger
30, where quarterback and kicker
Butch Moore hit on a 47-yard field
goal.
On their next possession, a
short punt gave them the ball at
the Tiger 43. The Tiger defense
gave up one first down but then
stiffened and forced another 47-
yard field goal attempt. This one
missed the mark ever so slightly

to the left.
On the offensive side of things,
the first period saw Clewiston
only manage six plays, incur two
costly penalties and make no first
downs.
In the second quarter, the Tiger
defense kept upping the intensity
of play and forced a Viking punt
from near midfield. The ball hit
around the 10 yard line, bounced
around and eventually popped
up in the face of Tiger return man
Zack Waddell, who instinctively
grabbed for the ball but couldn't
hold on. Verot recovered the fum-
ble at the Tiger 2-yard stripe.
The defense stopped them cold


on two tries but the Vikings then
scored -on a pass from Moore to
tight end Kyle Becker. Trailing by
10 points and being shut out, the
pre-game predictions still seemed
very true.
The Tigers began their next
possession at their 20 after a kick-
off into the-end zone.
Seventeen plays later, Clewis-
ton hit paydirt when tailback Co-
lin Ricketts smashed through on a
13-yard run.
The drive featured three third-
down and one fourth-down con-
versions and three penalties.
Ricketts had runs of 24, 13
and 12 yards prior to his scor-


ing run and quarterback Isandro
Marquez also had a timely pass
completion of 8 yards to wideout
P.J. Runkles.
Tailback Darris Hughes also
contributed with a 24-yard run
during the drive.
The Tigers went to the lock-
ers at half trailing 10-7 but having
shown the crowd and the Vikings
that they intended to run the ball.
Clewiston took the second-
half kickoff and marched 68 yards
on seven snaps. Ricketts dashed
off the left side and hit the corner
pylon for a 22-yard touchdown to
put the Tigers in the lead for the
first time in the game.
The Vikings' offense was
stuffed on the following posses-
sion and a poor punt off the side
of Moore's foot gave Clewiston
the ball at the Vikings 21.
Hughes had runs of 13 and 7
before getting the final yard off.
the left tackle.
The Vikings were stopped
again on their next drive 'after
only making one first down.
As the third period ended,
Clewiston was leading 19-10 and
had held the Vikings to 38 yards
rushing and 62 yards passing.
The Tiger defense kept the Vi-
kings in check on their first final
period offensive series.
But then the Vikings' defense
returned the favor and got the


ball back at midfield.
Eight plays later, they had
reached the Tiger 22, where they
were stopped in their tracks on
three straight incompletions.
Moore then booted a 40-yard
field goal to narrow the Tiger lead
to 19-13.
The Tigers took the kickoff and
wasted no time in responding.
After Ricketts hit the line for 2
yards, Hughes went off the right
side and then streaked 67 yards
untouched to seal the game for
Clewiston:
Another Bishop Verot drive
was stymied by an interception
by cornerback Zack Waddell,
which he returned 34 yards.
On their final series of the
game, the Vikings did drive
back deep in Tiger territory but
the game ended as Moore was
sacked on the final two plays of
the game.
Tackle Nick Raiola got the first
sack for a loss of two yards and
then defensive end Willie Arm-
strong nailed Moore on a 12-yard
loss as the game ended.
The offense was potent on the
night, rolling up 289 yards rush-
ing on 42 attempts.
Darris Hughes finished with
165 yards and Colin Ricketts add-
ed 120.
Their offensive line was click-
ing for the final three periods with


impressive blocking all along the
front.
Seniors Ryan Gutshall at cen-
ter, guard Nick Raiola and tackle
Chris Bell, along with juniors
Adam Trevino at guard, and tack-
le Troy Kornya, controlled the line
of scrimmage and opened nice
holes for Ricketts and Hughes.
Defensively, the Tigers turned
in their best-performance of the
year. They hit hard and kept deny-
ing Moore the time he needed and
covering receivers downfield.
Ricketts, from his linebacker
position, had seven tackles and
an assist. Armstrong had six so-
los, an assist and three quarter-
back sacks for a total of 16 yards
lost.
Raiola also had a running
back sack to go with his quar-
terback sack. On the night, Verot
was held to only 28 yards rushing
on 25 tries.
Tampa Catholic finished the
regular season 8-2 and beat Bish-
op Verot 35-0 in regular season
play.
In their first round playoff
game last Friday, they handily
whipped Inlet Grove, runner-up
to Clewiston in District 2A-6.
The Crusaders are a very good
team with a balanced offense so
it will take another great effort by
the Tigers to remain alive in the
playoffs.

GC Wrestling team looks to make a statement School Happeni
U~ i


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE -- Glades Cen-
tral wrestling coach Marc Schultz
is proud of his team's makeup.
At a recent practice, he sees
that his wrestlers are hungry and
eager to learn their proper tech-
niques.
The wrestlers do not want to
let each otherdown, so they help
each other get better, he said.
Most of all, the team seems to
be on a mission, ready to win its
district this year.
Coach Schultz, in his fifth
season as a head coach and 17
overall, has produced seven state
championship wrestlers. Now
he hopes to produce at least one
more this season.
The head coach has 25 wres-
tlers on his team, but three of
them really stand out; one even
has a chance at making Glades
Central history this season.
Players to watch:
Daphilo Succes, a se-
nior, is looking to become the
first-ever, four-time, state-placed
wrestler in Glades Central history.
The senior, who finished with a
30-6 record last year, finished first
in the District 13-1A 130-pound
weight class. He went on to the
regional meet, finishing second
and ultimately placed sixth in the
state. During Daphilo's freshman
and sophomore years, he placed
sixth in the state meet.in the 125-
pound weight class. His goal is
to place first in the state meet in
his senior year.
Wilky Exantus, a sopho-
more in the 135-pound weight
class, is a workout partner of
Daphilo's. Last year, Wilky was
the District 13-1A runner uip and
was one match from placing in
the regional meet. Looking to be

ments will be on the way very
soon, the mayor assured.
Then the F-word came out of
Mayor Sasser's mouth.
"FEMA," Sasser said, laughing
out loud with the audience.
Mayor Sasser said the organi-
zation had been instrumental in
providing much needed trailers to
residents after the hurricane. The
county also pitched in to help, he
said.
The mayor took the opportu-
nity to thank the city hall admin-
istration for helping to move the
city forward.
"Great things come in small
packages," the mayor said of Lillie
Latimore, the city manager. "Her
professionalism and integrity are
beyond reproach. I can assure
you that she is the reason why I
am standing her today. We will
miss her when she goes."
Ms. Latimore also weighed in.
"It's important that everybody
embraces the vision of Pahokee
in order to build for the future,"

and held it against the child.
But the suspect learned a
much more painful lesson of his
own.
On Saturday, Nov. 17, the
victim's mother picked the child
up from 258 Holman Court, the
suspect's residence.
Almost immediately, she no-
ticed the burn on his forearm and
called the PBSO and Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue to report the
incident and seek medical atten-
tion for her son. The child had not
received medical attention imme-
diately after being burned.
Later that day, investigators
placed the suspect under arrest
for domestic child abuse.

Russell retires as Everglades Prep Principal


Dr. William Holmes
Jr. is new principal

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Antoine Russell,
Everglades Preparatory Academy
principal, retired on Nov. 15 in a
move that was expected by many
in the community.
Mr. Russell, who has been in
the educational system for over
35 years and helped spearhead
the school, will be spending time
with the family and traveling, ac-
cording to charter school repre-
sentatives
Everglades Prep will now be


headed by Dr. William Holmes
Jr., who plans on raising the level
of academics and expectations
for the charter school.
"We're looking into our more
intensive curriculum as well as
our after-school tutorial pro-
gram," Dr. Holmes said. "We're
expecting our students to excel in
the classroom."
Some things that Dr. Holmes
would like to keep intact are a
cohesive relationship with the
staff members, a hallmark of Mr.
Russell's.
"Mr. Russell believed to take
the opportunity in meeting the
needs of every student that came
through Everglades .Pep," Dr.
Holmes said. "I want to increase


our awareness as far as our aca-
demics and level of professional-
ism at our school."
In existence since 2002, Ever-
glades Prep is looking to become
a premier charter school. Toward
that goal, Dr. Holmes would like
for at least 75 percent of the 160
students that attend to pass both
the math and reading sections of
the FCAT exams.
In essence, Mr. Holmes would
like to see improved ACT scores
for senior who attend the charter
school.
"The students have to be more
focused in managing their time
well," Dr. Holmes said. "If they do
that, then they will become bet-
ter test-takers and their scores will


improve."
Dr. Holmes brings nine years
of educational experience as a
vocational teacher at Sago Palm
Academy; he taught citizen con-
tact and customer service skills to
the students at the facility.
Dr. Holmes, a Glades-area na-
tive, received a Ph. D. in Christian
Education from Trinity Institute
Graduate School of Theology ear-
lier this year.
"Mr. Russell brought a wealth
of education and experience to
the Glades area," Dr. Holmes
said. "He touched everyone in the
entire tri-cities area and will be re-
membered for that."

turn in for a score.toward the end
of the second quarter.
It wasn't just the defense that
performed well; it was an all-
around domination that has to be
considered the best game of the
season thus far by the Blue Dev-
ils.
The Blue Devils scored seven
times on offense and another one
on special teams.
The Suns simply could not stop
the Blue Devils rushing attack as
junior Vincent Smith led the team
with 126 yards on nine carries and
two touchdowns, including the
opening score on a 40-yard run
with 8:22 left in the first quarter.
Rushing touchdowns also
came from Jenkins, Tyrone Hill
and Marcus Washington, who
scored on his only rushing at-
tempt, a 14-yard run at the end of
the game.
On the passing front, senior
Antavious Wilson scored two
touchdowns on five receptions
for 120 yards, courtesy of quarter-
back Anthony Sheppard.
The Suns would feel the Blue
Devils wrath on special teams, as
well. In the second half, junior Jar-
vis Byrd blocked a Suns punt, with
Jenkins scoring on a 23-yard punt
block return for a touchdown.
"The Suns were trying to in-
timidate us with the letter and it
just gave us motivation to come
*on the field and run up the score-
board on them," Smith said. "We.
had a lot of fun out there tonight
and once we had fun, the game
just took care of itself."
Blaze Thompson, the Blue Dev-
ils head coach, simply couldn't
agree more with the sentiment.
"I liked the outcome tremen-
dously," Coach Thompson said.
"It was a complete game and ev-
eryone did their jobs. We want to
continue to play complete games

he helped the Gators amass 311

Thanksgiving: Lessons from scripture


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
As I plan for Thanksgiving, I
know the day will be a bit quieter
than usual. I won't be in the of-
fice or making calls, won't look
at my "to do"
list, won't be
catching up on
things put off. I
will be sharing
a meal and see-
ing if I can find
something that
I would like .to
do; just for me, Samuel S.
just for some- Thomas
one else, for our
dog. The blessing of a quieter-
than-usual day is that I will have a
chance to reflect on "being thank-
ful."
Things are certainly not a
Garden of Eden these days and
there's a lot that needs improve-
ment. I listen to the news: the job
scene, the possibility of a reces-
sion, global warming, the price
of gasoline, a war that calms
down in one area and pops up in
another and wonder where will
it all lead. Then I look at our re-
frigerator: food for quite a time to


come. I look at our carport; more
vehicles than really needed. I look
at my closet; more clothes and
more shoes than in most of the
world. I will take a few moments
to be thankful that my worries
about food or clothing or shelter
are different than those on other
continents. In fact, they have been
that way for a long, long time.
As I write, a transient comes
to the door. He has come here
from the north and hasn't gotten
his first paycheck yet. Could I help
him? Yes, we have a food pantry
for such needs and we give him
something to eat. He may remem-
ber this day and when he gets on
his feet and feed someone else. I
am thankful this day to have been
able to help. It's our way of be-
ing thankful; by helping others.
I will visit someone who cannot
come to visit me. I will recall the
first Thanksgiving and think about
other Thanksgivings, too. We will
commemorate the Lord's Supper
in church on Thanksgiving Day.
The Biblical account tells us
that the Lord "gave thanks" when
He took the bread and took the
cup of wine (Matthew 26:26-
27, Luke 22:17 19). I recall that
things around Him those days
were in quite a turmoil; a shaky


peace with the Romans, people
living in fear of local tyrants,
knowing that betrayal and execu-
tion were around the corner for
Him. Nevertheless, He stopped
to give thanks for the blessings
of the meal and what it stood for.
I suppose He remembered the
twelve that were with Him and
was thankful for their friendship.
I imagine that He remembered
His reason for coming here in the
first place and giving thanks that
His ministry was almost fulfilled.
Maybe He remembered to be
thankful for-.the provisions to be
shared; food that had really been
provided all of His earthly life.
I remember our own Pilgrims
who had all sorts of reasons to
complain once they found them-
selves at Plymouth; leaving com-
fortable homes and "civilization",
friends and family, making a very
risky sea crossing in boats that
we would hesitate to use today.
They all gave thanks, too, in spite
of having all sorts of troubles and
problems; God was there with
them and they saw things from
His viewpoint. That would leave
anyone truly thankful.
Today, we hear a lot about
"stress" and how it is bad for
us. I've found that by stopping


to think about what makes me
thankful, some of the stress dis-
appears. The things that cause
stress are very real, but they're
not always the biggest thing in
life or even the most important.
When I seek things to be thank-
ful about, I find it as an antidote
to some of the worries that could
be overwhelming if they got out
of hand.
Somehow, Thanksgiving or
giving thanks services to offset the
fear, or anger, or hatred, or disap-
pointment, or feeling cheated that
can consume and preoccupy us
as human beings.
It was over a meal that our
Lord took time to have a dialogue
with those around Him at that
table. It was a moment to step
back, to be grateful and to share,
a time of Thanksgiving.
We will have a moment to
step back, be grateful, share, be
strengthened by food and fellow-
ship and be made ready to face
once more the challenges that lay
ahead; we will have a thanksgiv-
ing. People can find all sorts of
reasons not to be thankful; but
being thankful makes all of the
difference. The Lord gave us that
example; take time to thank Him,
too.


The most valuable word in any language


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
When Mark Twain was at
the peak of his writing career,
it is said that his magazine and
journal articles were worth $5 a
word--a great sum of money in
those days. One enterprising Har-
vard graduate student sent Mark
Twain a letter: "Dear Mr. Twain,
enclosed please find $5. Please
send me your best word."
A few days later, the student re-
ceived a telegram with this single
word response: "Thanks!"
"Thanks" may be the most
valuable word in-any language.
It is certainly the word that domi-
nates our thinking during our
short and sweet Thanksgiving
season. I say short and sweet
because no sooner do the Hal-
loween decorations go down,
the Christmas decorations go up.
Traditionally, one of the biggest
shopping days of the year is the
day after Thanksgiving. This year,
However, several stores are start-


ing their sales on Thanksgiving.
The financial pressures which
have kidnapped Christmas and
turned it into a buying binge have
run over Thanksgiving.
To understand Thanksgiv-
ing from a faith perspective, we
need to detach
Thanksgiving..
from outer cir-
cumstances.
Thanksgiving is
not just for peo-
ple who can say, I.
"I am better off '
than I was last "
year." Or, "I am J
in good health." John
Or, "My family Hicks
is happy." Thanksgiving is giving
thanks even in the midst of all that
is going around us.
Think for a moment about the
first Thanksgiving. During the first
winter, half of the Plymouth colo-
nists died. Friendly Indians, how-
ever, taught the Pilgrims to fish off
the rocky coasts, to plant corn,
and to hunt. The following sum-
mer and fall brought a good har-


vest. So, despite all the death and
hardships, they held a three-day
thanks-giving celebration with
about ninety Indians as guests.
Real thanks-giving is a declara-
tion of faith concerning the One
who is bigger than our circum-
stances, the One who can make
all things work together for good.
Real thanks-giving is based on
faith- stance rather than circum-
stance. This is what is meant
when the Scriptures admonish
us to, "Give thanks in all circum-
stances, for this is God's will for
you in Christ Jesus."
In the 1962 Thanksgiving Day
proclamation, President John
F. Kennedy summarized it well:
"Over three centuries ago in
Plymouth, on Massachusetts Bay,
the Pilgrims established the cus-
tom of gathering together each
year to express their gratitude to
God for the preservation of their
community and for the harvests
their labors brought forth in the
new land. Joining with their
neighbors, they shared together
and worshiped together in a com-


mon giving of thanks. Thanksgiv-
ing Day has ever since been part
of the fabric which has united
Americans with their past, with
each other, and with the future
of all mankind...It is fitting that
we give our thanks for the safety
of our land, for the fertility of our
harvests, for the strength of our
liberties, for the health of our
people ... I urge that all observe
this day with reverence and with
humility. Let us renew the spirit
of the Pilgrims at the first Thanks-
giving, facing the dark unknown
with a faith born of their dedica-
tion to God and a fortitude drawn
from their sense that all men
were brothers. Let us renew that
spirit by offering our thanks for
un-covenanted mercies, beyond
our desert or merit, and by resolv-
ing to meet the responsibilities
placed upon us. Let us renew that
spirit by sharing the abundance of
this day with those less fortunate,
in our own land and abroad. Let
us renew that spirit by seeking al-
ways to establish larger commu-
nities of brotherhood." Amen!


Thanksgiving!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
You've probably heard the
story of the first Thanksgiving,
but maybe you're not familiar
with how it developed into a na-
tional holiday. In the fall of 1621,
the Pilgrims of Plymouth'Colony
invited their Wampanoag friends
to a feast to give thanks to God
for the bountiful harvest that
would sustain them all winter.
Just a few months earlier; their
first harsh winter at Plymouth
had devastated the unprepared
Pilgrims, taking the lives of half
the colony. Now they were filled
with gratitude that this winter
would be different. To celebrate
the harvest and their ability to
worship God without fear of
persecution, they spent three
days feasting and praying.
The Pilgrims repeated this
harvest feast in the years that
followed. The tradition of annu-
al Thanksgiving developed and
spread throughout New Eng-
land, and later to other colonies.
But it was not until 1863, when
President Abraham Lincoln gave
a Thanksgiving Proclamation
emphasizing the importance of
recognizing God as the provider
of all blessings every year. That
Thanksgiving became a nation-
ally recognized annual holiday.
He began his speech by say-
ing, "This year that is drawing
toward its close has been filled
with blessings' of fruitful years
and healthful skies. To these
bounties which are so constant-
ly enjoyed that we are prone to
forget the source from which
they come, others have been
added which are of so extraor-
dinary a nature that they can not
fail to penetrate and soften even
the heart which is habitually
insensible to the ever-watchful
providence of Almighty God."
Lincoln was grateful because
events of that year had turned
the tide of the Civil War, and it
finally looked as if the ruptured
nation would see a resolution.
Just like the Pilgrims, Lincoln
had seen hard times and want-
ed to express his gratitude to
the Lord for providing relief. He
concluded by designating the
last Thursday of November as a


national day of Thanksgiving.
The tradition was upheld by
most subsequent presidents un-
til Depression-era business own-
ers prompted Franklin D. Roos-
evelt to lengthen the Christmas
shopping season by observing
Thanksgiving a week earlier in
1939. After two more years of
early Thanksgiving, public out-
rage led Congress in 1941 to
pass a law solidifying the fourth
Thursday of every November as
Thanksgiving.
In this season of Thanksgiv-
ing, what should you thank God
for? The answer is anything and
everything! Thank Him for your
family, your friends, the food
you eat and the roof over your
head. But most of all, you can
thank Him for the wonderful gift
of His Son Jesus Christ!
The Bible tells us that salva-
tion is not something that cane
be earned, but is given to us
freely by God. Jesus said: "Go
into all the world and preach the
gospel to every creature, he that
believeth and is baptized shall be
saved." (Mark 16:15-16). Ephe-
sians 2:8-9 says, "For by grace
you have been saved through
faith. And this is not your own
doing; it is the gift of God, not a
result of works, so that no may
boast." Because we are all sin-
ners, we cannot possibly reach
Heaven based on our own mer-
its, "For all have sinned and fall
short of the glory of God" (Ro-
mans 3:23). But because of His
love for us, God provided a way
for us to be saved through the
death and resurrection of His
Son, Jesus Christ. "For God so
loved the world, that he gave His
only Son, that whoever believes
in Him should not perish but
have eternal life" (John 3:16).
Eternal life what blessing
could be greater? If you want to
enter Heaven, believe that Jesus
died for your sins, was buried
and arose from the dead. Re-
pent of your sins. Confess faith
in Him and be immersed for the
remission of your sins to receive
the gift of the Holy Spirit. Be
faithful to His church and what
He has commanded. Then you
will have something to be really
Thankful for!

PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS: ULMITATIONS ON PROPERTY TAX ASSESSMENTS

Ballot Summary:
This revision proposes changes to the State Constitution relating to property taxation. With respect to homestead property, this revision: (1) increases
the homestead exemption except for school dsrict taxes and (2) allows homestead property owners lo transfer up to $500,000 o their Save-Our-Homes
benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this rension (3) provides a 25,000 exemption for tangible personal proper-
ty and (4) limits assessment increases for specified nonhomested real property except for school district axes,

In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exempting the assessed value between S50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does not apply to
school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer of accumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead property owners will be able to transfer their Save-Our-Homes
benetl to a new homestead within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relinquishing their previous homestead; except, if this revision is approved by
the electors in Jandary of 2008 and ii the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been relinquished in
2007. I the new homestead has a higher just value than the previous one,the accumulated benefit can be transferred; if the new homestead has a lower
just value, the amount of benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $500,000. This provision applies to all taxes.

tos in the general election held in 2018,

Further, this revision:
a. Repeals obsolete language on the homestead exemption when it was less than $25,000 and did not apply uniformly to property taxes levied
by all local govemments.
b. Provides for homestead exemptions to be repealed if a future constitutional amendment provides for assessment of homesteads'at less than
just value' rather than as currently provided 'al a specied percentage' ofjust value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1,2008, if approved in a special elec-
tin held on January 29, 2008, or to take effect January 1,2009, if approved in the general election held in November of 2008, The limitation on annu-

I Public Notice


You can holiday shop without a trace of holiday debt


WEST PALM BEACH The
average consumer plans to spend
$923.36 this holiday season, ac-
cording to the National Retail
Federation (NRF). Challenging
economic conditions and a bleak
housing market will cause many
consumers to be more conserva-
tive with their holiday spending,
but many others will find them-
selves struggling to pay holiday
debt well into spring and.beyond.
"Nothing takes the joy out
of the season faster than'over-
whelming debt," said Jessica
Cecere, president of Consumer
Credit Counseling Service (CCCS)
of Palm Beach County and the
Treasure Coast. "Plan carefully,
shop wisely, and don't lose sight
of what is truly important during
the holidays-quality time with
family and friends."
Increasing your income during
the holiday season is a.great way
to avoid accumulating debt that
you may spend months paying
off. According to the NRF, almost
600,000 .seasonal jobs will be
available in November and De-


cember. Working a few evenings
a week or weekends can provide
the additional money you will
need to buy gifts for family and
friends without overextending
yourself or your budget.
CCCS offers other tips to help
consumers this holiday season:
*Budget before you shop
Deciding what you can spend
before you hit the mall can save
you in the long run, especially if
you plan to make purchases with
cash instead of credit. Along with
gifts, be sure to include decora-
tions, wrapping and cards, and
entertainment when developing
your holiday budget. If you will
be.traveling this holiday season,
do not forget to include the cost
of travel, gasoline, airfare, hotel
stays, meals and entertainment.
SMake a list and check it
twice
Make a list of all the people
you want to buy gifts for and
note the amount you would like
to spend on each person, making
sure that your total does not ex-
ceed the spending limit you set. If


it does, review and revise the list
until you are within your budget.
If you track your purchases as you
make them, you might find you
save money on some gifts and
have more to allocate to others
on your list.
SDo your homework and shop
around
Retailers already have a full
array of holiday items on display,
and many have already started
offering discounts to encourage
consumers to buy. By getting an
early start on your holiday shop-
ping, you can take advantage of
sales on seasonal items and look
for the best prices on items you
know you want to buy.i *In ad-
dition to weekly sales papers,
use online comparison shopping
sites to find the best prices. Sites
such as www.pricegrabber.com
, www.bizrate.com and www.
mysimon.com. Compare the
prices of multiple retailers on the
same item. -You can then order
items online or purchase them
locally. Before you buy, search
for discounts -- www.coupon-


cabin.com is a great resource for
coupon codes that can save you
shipping charges or a percentage
off your total purchase. Have an
expired coupon for a favorite re-
tailer? Many will honor coupons
long past the expiration. Be sure
to ask. Don't rule out non-tradi-
tional retailers -- thrift stores, dis-
count stores, consignment shops,
and specialty stores might have
just what you're looking for at a
much lower price.
SUse credit wisely--or not at
all
Avoid using credit cards to
make holiday purchases, espe-
cially if you are not able to pay
the balance in full at the end of
the month. Spending more than
you have budgeted is much more
likely if you are using credit cards,
especially if you're rushed for
time and feeling the stress of holi-
day shopping. Leaving your credit
cards at horre will help ensure
that you will stick to your budget,
even if it means spending a little
more time looking for the right
gift.


If you do use credit cards for
holiday shopping, keep a run-
ning tally of what you have spent
and deduct it from your checking
account balance. Incorporating
these purchases into your budget
will help ensure you don't over-
spend.
*Give back to others
If money is extremely tight,
you may want to give back to oth-
ers, which is truly what the holi-
days are all about. You and your
family may want to volunteer at a
food bank, church, shelter or hos-
pital instead of worrying about
purchasing gifts.
*Make your own gifts
For families with relatives who
live out of town, children can
make a scrapbook that includes
test paper, pictures of their favor-
ite activity, a drawing or painting
that they made just for the rela-
tive. And the scrapbook can con-
tain an area to place little notes by
the picture describing the event
or the occasion. In addition, chil-
dren can make a personal card for
their grandparents/or relatives in-


stead of purchasing a card. These
sentimental gifts mean so much
more than purchasing a bathrobe
or the like.

Joint funding of land purchase to help Caloosahatchee River


KEY LARGO Just two days
after Lee County approved $10
million toward purchasing land
for a project to improve water
quality in the Caloosahatchee
River, the South Florida Water
Management District Governing
Board Nov. 15 approved a Memo-
randum of Agreement with the
county to jointly finance the $37
million land acquisition.
The State and District together
will add $27 million to Lee Coun-
ty's funds to acquire 1,770 acres
along the river, where a water
quality treatment and testing facil-
ity will be built. Using treatment
cells and technologies now under
development, the project will pro-


vide water quality improvements
in the Caloosahatchee River, con-
tributing toward progress in the
massive undertaking to restore
the northern Everglades.
"This agreement embodies the
spirit of mutually supportive ef-
forts to benefit the environment,"
said South Florida Water Manage-
ment District Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann. "Local
citizens, county leaders, environ-
mental groups, state scientists,
engineers and water managers
all worked together to address
common water quality concerns
with the river. We commend Lee
County for its commitment to this
outstanding project, which will


benefit the entire region and its
residents."
"Execution of this Agreement
by Lee County is the culmination
of our efforts to develop and expe-
dite projects for the protection of
the Caloosahatchee River and Es-
tuary," said Bob Janes, Lee Coun-
ty Commission Chairman. "The
Lee County Board of County
Commissioners is thrilled to join
the State and District as partners
dedicated to making protection
of Lee County's precious natural
resources a reality. This is a vital
first step and demonstrates the
commitment of Lee County to
work with our partners." ( Click
here to view Memorandum of


Agreement)
Water managers are target-
ing at least 1,335 acres out of the
1,770 acres of land about eight
miles east of LaBelle in Glades
County for the water quality proj-
ect that will remove nutrients and
sediments' from water flowing
into the Caloosahatchee River.
When complete, the facility will
compliment the C-43 West Stor-
age Reservoir to improve the
quantity, timing and delivery of
water into the Caloosahatchee
River and estuary. (Click here to
view maps of the area, Map 2 )
Located on 10,000 acres of for-
mer farmland in Hendry County
south of the river, the West Res-


ervoir will hold approximately
170,000 acre-feet of water, with
a range in depth from 15 to 25
feet. It will comprise a significant
portion of the total water storage
requirement for the Caloosa-
hatchee Estuary. The reservoir
will capture and store local basin
runoff and a portion of regulatory
releases from Lake Okeechobee,
reducing harmful discharges to
the coastal estuaries, improving
the health of the ecosystem and
revitalizing fish and oyster habi-
tats by maintaining salinity levels.
The Caloosahatchee River
water storage and water quality
projects are a part of the State's
plan to restore the northern Ev-


erglades. The 2007 Florida Leg-
islature this year expanded-the
Lake Okeechobee Protection Act
to safeguard and restore the en-
tire northern Everglades system,
including the Lake Okeechobee
watershed as well as the Caloo-
sahatchee and St. Lucie rivers
and estuaries. Over the next two
years, the law calls for the devel-
opment of far-reaching plans to
protect and improve the quality,
quantity, timing and distribution of
water north of Lake Okeechobee.
These plans will augment and
enhance restoration under way
in the remnant Everglades south
of the lake.
