Underwood's contract extended


City manager to
stay in Belle Glade
through April 2010
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLAE In the middle
of a one-year, $125,000 contract
as Belle Glade city manager, Bill
Underwood received a two-year
contract. extension on Monday
night.
The terms of the contract
extension include $125,000 per
year plus benefits, which will


keep Mr. Underwood in Belle
Glade until at least April 2010.
According to Belle Glade
Commissioner Shelly Miller, who
made the motion for the con-
tract extension, Mr. Underwood
was fielding interest from other
cities.
There were other reasons for
the sudden desire to secure an
extension for the city manager.
"Mr. Underwood has done
more in seven months than the
past four city managers have
done combined, in my opin-
ion," Commissioner Miller said.
"I made the motion because I


have a fear that the city could
lose the abilities and skills of Mr.
Underwood, who has worked
on cleaning the city and creating
positive business and govern-
mental relationships. Most of all,
he brings'stability to the city of
Belle Glade."
.Commissioner Ray Torres
Sanchez almost, immediately
seconded 'the motion, but not
all of the commissioners agreed
with the move.
The move was questioned by
Commissioner Gwendolyn Asia-
Holley and Vice-Mayor Kendall.

High School media center, those who at-

cluded sausages, eggs, grits and orange
juice.


had strong reservations, particu-
larly regarding the timing of the
contract extension.
"Normally, a contract is pre-
sented to all of the commission-
ers prior to voting and if a city
manager is going to be re-hired
with a contract extension, he
needs to be evaluated," Com-
missioner Asia-Holley said.
It is not yet clear as to why Mr.
Underwood did not undergo an
evaluation of his performance.
The motion was approved by
Belle Glade Mayor Donald Gar-
rett and Commissioners Miller
and Sanchez.


Vice-Mayor Mary Kendall
opposed the action, but Com-
missioner Asia-Holley abstained
from the voting.
After accepting the offer, Mr.
Underwood had a brief state-
ment to the audience.
"I am really here to help fix
the city and move it forward," he
said.
Vice-Mayor Kendall was
clearly outraged by the contract
extension and its timing, espe-.
cially considering the. fact that it
happened in the. middle of the
commission meeting and that it

Dike repair work on lake continues


Progress on repairs
facilitated by dry
weather conditions
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Independent Newspapers
PORT MAYACA -- Rehabilita-
tion work on the Herbert Hoover
Dike is progressing at a rapid
pace, according to the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
The drought conditions affect-


ing the lake level requiring water
shortage restrictions and a bump
to the local economy had a silver
lining, the corps reported, with
the schedule of repair advancing
quicker than had been antici-
pated.
Susan Jackson, spokeswoman
for the Army Corps of Engineers,
explained that the exposed lake
bottom facilitated work.
"Average lake levels require
some inspections to be con-
ducted by specially trained scuba


divers, remote operated vehicles
with underwater cameras, or by
closing off and dewatering the
site," she explained. "Instead,
Corps engineers were able to
navigate boats through the cul-
vert structures, resulting in ma-
jor reductions in time, effort and
costs."
Work at the site has been
consistently active and brought
more into the public focus after
an independent report found the
earthen dike to be riddled with

piping -- literally holes that form
in the levee and could cause seep-
age and breaches -- and urged the
management agencies to act in
securing the aging dike:
The first of the cutoff wall con-
tracts has started, according to
Ms. Jackson.
The cutoff wall will, dig verti-
cally into the dike, reaching into
the limestone layer in the earth to
reduce the presence of piping.
The Army Corps hopes that its
work will strengthen the levee for
years to come and relieve worry
that a heightened lake level could
present major problems in the
communities directly next to the
lake.
Another concern that is being
carefully considered is the con-
tentious issue of property acquisi-
tion to accommodate the repairs.
Residents in Pahokee had previ-
ously expressed concern and out-
right anger at the possibility that
up to several hundred feet of their
property would be acquired for
this purpose.
In between continuing their
work at the Port Mayaca site, a
stretch of land representing the
first reach of Work around the
143-mile lake, engineers have
gone back to re-think their plans
and, according ,to Ms. Jackson,
have come upon some ideas that
may spare some areas from land
acquisition.
While she is careful to say that
the plans won't completely elimi-
nate the possibility, wherever pos-
sible they will be used to lessen
the chance that private land will
be required. .

First indictment of grand jury announced


Ten members of SUR-
13 gang arrested in
Palm Beach County

WEST PALM BEACH -- Palm
Beach County Sheriff Ric Brad-
shaw, Attorney General Bill
McCollum and the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) announced recently the
first arrests and indictments of
the 18th Statewide Grand Jury
convened to study the growth
of gangs and gang violence in
the State of Florida. Authorities
arrested 10 South Florida mem-
bers of SUR-13, a dangerous
gang that operates statewide.
Each member will be charged
with criminal racketeering and
conspiracy to commit racketeer-
ing and could each spend up to
60 years in prison if convicted.
The sweep is one of the
year's largest coordinated efforts
to target gangs as an organized
criminal enterprise and included
cooperation from the Florida
Highway Patrol, U. S. Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) and the State Attorney's
Office for the 15th Judicial Cir-
cuit.
The local and state law en-
forcement investigation identi-
fied the alleged gang members
as individuals connected to.
other criminal activity including
the attempted murder of rival
gang members during a drive-
by shooting that severely injured
an innocent bystander. Other
crimes attributed to the gang in-
clude a series of armed robber-
ies, retaliatory arson, aggravated
battery and multiple theft and
drug-related charges. The men
were arrested yesterday during a
tactical operation coordinated by
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office (PBSO) with members of
the Palm Beach County Multi-
Agency Violent Crimes Task
Force. During the arrest sweeps,
a search warrant revealed a fully
loaded Tech 9 assault weapon at
one individual's homes.
"This is a perfect example
of the type of team effort I sup-
port and encourage," said Palm
Beach County Sheriff Ric Brad-


shaw. "Our Gang Strategy here at
PBSO calls for partnerships with
Federal, State and local agen-
cies. By using the state statues
involving RICO, we are attacking
their organized criminal activity
by targeting their organizations
from the top to the bottom."
Those arrested include Er-
nesto Campos, 25; Isaias Ja-
cobo, 24; Victor Castillo, 24;
Enrique Medran, 20; Dennis Me-
drano, 19; Alexis Medrano, 17;
Kevin Medrano, 19; Efran Ortiz,
25, Carlos Martinez, 21; and Ro-
berto Trejo, 18. Ernesto Cam-
pos, the group's leader, is in the
country illegally. All defendants
are currently being held at the
Palm Beach County Jail on $1
million dollar bond as ordered
by Chief Judge Kathleen Kroll,
Presiding Judge of the 18th
Statewide Grand Jury. All will be
charged wit-i c:rir,-iiinl rJ.ki,-e ir -
ing and conspiracy to commit
racketeering, both first-degree
felonies. Attorney General Bill
McCollum's Office of Statewide
Prosecution will prosecute the
cases in the 15 Judicial Circuit
using the racketeering charges
to attack the gang as an orga-
nized criminal operation.
"The only way we are going
to stop the growth of gangs and
reduce the gang violence threat-
ening our state is to work coop-
eratively with local, state'and
federal authorities to take these
criminals, off the streets and
bring them to justice," said At-
torney General McCollum. "This
operation has clearly proved
that when we work together,
we can achieve better results. I
am pleased with the work done
by the Statewide Grand Jury we
impaneled and I look forward to
even more progress."
"Gang activity will not be
tolerated by Florida law en-
forcement,' said FDLE Commis-
sioner Gerald Bailey. We will
continue to work collaboratively
to prevent these criminal orga-
nizations from operating and
stop them from bringing violent
crime to our communities."
To address the gang issue
on a statewide level, the Attor-
ney General's Office launched
the Statewide Grand Jury in


August to investigate criminal
gang activity including crimes
involving narcotics or other dan-
gerous drugs and robbery, as
well as violations of the Florida
Racketeer Influenced and Cor-
ruption Organization (RICO)
Act. The jurors are also study-
ing various criminal issues and
plan to make recommendations
on laws needed to deter gang
activities and to punish those in-
volved in these pursuits. An in-
terim report, which will include
legislative recommendations for
combating the spread of gangs
and gang violence, is expected
to be released in early January.
In addition to impaneling the
grand jury, the Attorney Gener-
al's Office has also convened an
Executive Group to examine the
growing threat criminal gangs
-ose and develop a coordinated
-ir, ,-s.oi.,-^ stat- idek'
paric' reduction strategy \will lake
p two-pronged approach, a ,law
enforcement effort and an edu-
cational effort focused on pre-
vention and intervention. The
strategy will address issues con-
cerning gang membership iden-
tification, gang recruitment, risk
factors for youth, prevention,
crime suppression and post
conviction or adjudication diver-
sion. The long-range plan will
include gang suppression and
deterrence techniques; prosecu-
tion and criminal justice system
enhancements; prevention and
intervention; data and intelli-
gence sharing; education and
training; and rehabilitation and
reentry efforts for former gang
members. More information can

Holiday decorations


can be safe and fun


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging people to be care-
ful with Christmas trees, lights,
Menorahs and other decorations
this holiday season. He is espe-
cially concerned about the po-
tential for fire given the dry con-
ditions around the state.
Fires from trees and improper
use of candles result in about
150 deaths a year according to
the Consumer Product Safety
Commission. In addition, hos-
pital emergency rooms treat at
least 8,500 Americans for falls,
cuts, shocks and burns due to
incidents involving faulty lights,
dried-out Christmas trees and
other holiday activities. Menorah
candles and decorative candles
can also be a fire hazard without
proper safety precautions.
"These are tragedies that do
not have to happen," Commis-
sioner Bronson said. "Following
some common sense safety mea-
sures can help ensure people do
have a safe and happy holiday."
Here are some safety tips to
consider during this holiday sea-
son.
When purchasing a live
tree, check for freshness. A tree
which needles are hard to pull
from branches and whose trunk
is sticky with resin is not a fresh
tree. When setting up a tree, keep
it away from fireplaces, portable
heaters and other heat sources.
Keep the stand filled with water.
When buying an artificial tree,
look for the label "Fire Resis-
tant." While it doesn't mean that
the tree cannot catch fire, it does
indicate that it is more resistant
to burning. If the artificial tree is
metallic, use extreme caution if
using electric lights or decora-
tions. Faulty wiring can cause
the whole tree to become elec-
trified.
When using menorahs and
candles, keep the menorah out
of children's reach. Always use
a menorah with a sturdy base
to reduce the possibility of tip-
ping over. If a child is lighting the
Hanukkah candles, keep his/her
hair back and out of the way.


Never allow children to reach
over one candle to light another,
since their clothing might catch
fire. Never use lighted candles
on a tree or near other ever-
greens and make sure that any
lighted candles being used for
decorative purposes are within
sight and out of reach of chil-
dren. Place decorative candles
on a heat resistant surface and
in a proper, stable holder._Keep
candles away from curtains and
don't place them under shelves.
Do not move candles while they
are burning.
When purchasing or setting
up lights, make sure they bear
the label of a recognized test-
ing facility such as UL of ETL.
Discard any lights with cracked
sockets, frayed or bare wires or
loose connections. Follow man-
ufacturer's instructions regard-
ing the number of light strings
that can be safely connected
together. Additional strings can
overload electrical circuits and
increase the chance of fire or
electrocution. If you use an ex-
tension cord, make sure that it
is rated for the intended use, and
ensure that any lights being used
outside are certified for outdoor
use. Use only non-combustible
or flame resistant decorations
on a tree. Always turn off holi-
day lights and blow out candles
when going to bed or leaving the
house. Keep all holiday plants
out of reach of small children,
as most are poisonous. Keep the
National Poison Control Help
Line number readily available:
(800) 222-1222.
Bronson says people also
need to be careful with post holi-
day yard trash burning, bonfires
and cleaning out fireplaces. The
ongoing drought has left the state
dry and it won't take much of a
spark to start a wildfire. People
can contact their local Division of
Forestry office to find out about
fire weather conditions. He says
the holidays should be a joyous
time and people should not get
distracted with all the activities
and forget to follow these simple
safety precautions.

Quantum Foundation starts with healthy budget


WEST PALM BEACH--The
Quantum Foundation has an-
nounced that it is funding its
Federally Qualified Health Center
(FQHC) initiative with a new pool
of $500,000 that will be available
in early 2008. The pool of funds
will be used to assist existing or
new area clinics in their efforts to
become new FQHCs, FQHC sat-
ellites, and FQHC "look a likes".
"We are doing this for the
simple reason that we need
more primary care capacity in
Palm Beach County," Quantum
President Paul Gionfriddo said in
announcing the initiative. "Our
safety net primary care shortage
is impacting area hospitals, in-
cluding emergency departments,
and has clearly risen to a crisis
level that must be addressed as
soon as possible. This initiative
won't solve the problem, but
we hope it will demonstrate our
commitment to doing all we can
on our part."


Unlike free clinics, FQHCs
bill for services and serve both
insured and uninsured patients.
In return, the federal government
supports FQHCs through en-
hanced Medicaid and Medicare
reimbursements, reduced drug
pricing, special federal grants
and a variety of provider incen-
tives. With the number of unin-
sured residents having grown to
nearly a quarter million in Palm
Beach County, FQHCs offer a
sustainable model for providing
high quality health care.
Currently the county has three
FQHCs, one in Pahokee, one in
Belle Glade, and one in West
Palm Beach, with a small satellite
in North Palm Beach. Another
is under construction in Palm
Springs and is scheduled to open
in late 2008.
"Data from the Health Depart-
ment, a great partner in develop-
ing FQHC capacity in the County,
indicate at a minimum the need


for additional FQHC capacity in
Delray Beach, Boynton Beach,
Lantana, Lake Worth, Riviera
Beach, and Westgate," Gion-
friddo added. "Our objective is
to focus our resources as much
as we can on these areas, and
work with any and all public and
private partners who share our
objective".
In recent years, Quantum
has been a strong backer of the
Palm Springs clinic, which will
be operated by the nonprofit
Florida Community Health Cen-
ters (FCHC), and recently pro-
vided a grant to the FCHC Pa-
hokee Clinic as well, which was
in turn largely supported by the
Health Care District. In addition,
Quantum has provided a techni-
cal assistance grant to the Florida
Public Health Institute to assist
the Health Department (which
already operates two FQHCs
in Palm Beach County), other
providers, and free clinics in ex-


ploring FQHC expansion in the
targeted communities.,"This is a,
problem that will only be solved;
through teamwork," Gionfriddo
said "We're only one player here,
and we welcome all interested
parties to the team."
Quantum's funds will support
five specific activities associated
with establishing an FQHC, busi-
ness plan development, FQHC
application support, facility reno-
vation, start-up equipment costs,'
and start-up costs.
The Quantum Foundation is
Palm Beach County's leading
health foundation granting over,
$70 million in funds to charitable'
and governmental entities within;
the county for over ten years. The
foundation strives to improve
health care through access to
and changes within the health
delivery system as well as educa-
tion reform.

WEST PALM BEACH -- The

76 turkeys were provided.
"I am pleased to be a part
of such a wonderful organiza-
tion and to be able to help the


disadvantaged members of our

organization plays an extremely
vital role in the community and
the Turkey Giveaway is a great
example of our dedication to im-
proving the quality of life for all
citizens."

TO BE VOTED ON JANUARY 29,2008
NOTICE OF ELECTION
I, Kurt S. Browning, Secretary of State of the Sate of Florida, do hereby give notice that an election will be held in each county in Florida, on January
29, 2008, or the ratiicaion or rejection o a proposed revision to the constitution olthe State of Florida.
No. 1
CONSTITUTIONAL REVISION
ARTICLE VII, SECTIONS 3,4, AND 6
ARTICLE XII, SECTION 27
(Legislative)
Ballot Title:
PROPERTY TAX EXEMPTIONS; IMITATIONS 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 district taxes and (2) allows homestead property owners to transfer up to $500,000 of their Save-Our-Homes
benefits to their next homestead. With respect to nonhomestead property, this revision (3) provides a $25,000 exemption for tangible personal proper-
ty and (4) limits assessment increases for specified nonhomestead real property except for school district taxes.
In more detail, this revision:
(1) Increases the homestead exemption by exemping the assessed value between $50,000 and $75,000. This exemption does not apply to
school district taxes.
(2) Provides for the transfer ofaccumulated Save-Our-Homes benefits. Homestead property owners will be ableto transfertheir Save-Our-Homes
benefit to a new homestead within 1 year and not more than 2 years after relinquishing their previous homestead; except,ifthis revision is approved by
the electors in January of 2008 and if the new homestead is established on January 1, 2008, the previous homestead must have been relinquished in
2007. If the new homestead has a higherjust value than the previous one, tie accumulated benefit can be transferred; ifthe new homestead has a lower
just value, the amount of benefit transferred will be reduced. The transferred benefit may not exceed $50,0). This provision applies to all taxes.
(3) Authorizes an exemption from property taxes of $25,000 of assessed value of tangible personal property. This provision applies to all taxes.
(4) Limits the assessment increases for specided nonhomestead real property to 10 percent each year. Property will be assessed at just value
following an improvement, as tdeined by general law, and may be assessed at just value following a change of ownership or control if provided by gen-
eral law. This limitation does no apply to school distrcttaxes. This limitation isrepealed effective January 1,2019, unless renewed by vote ofthe elec-
tors in the general election held in 2018.
Further, this vision:
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 governments.
b. Provides for homestead exempions to be repealed if a future constitutional amendment provides for assessment ofhomesteads at less than
just value' rather than as currently provided 'at a specified percentage' of just value.
c. Schedules the changes to take effect upon approval by the electors and operate retroactively to January 1,2008, itapproved in a special elec-
tion held on January 29, 2008, or to lake effect January 1,2009, if approved in the general election held in November of 2008. The limitation on annu-
al assessment increases for specified real property shall first apply to the 2009 tax roll if this revision is approved in a special election held on January
29, 2008, or shall frsl apply to the 2010 tax roll it this revision is approved in the general election held in November of 2008.

Florida-friendly plant tips


By Keith Patton
coordinator Florida
Yards and Neighborhood
Program Cooperative
Extension Service Dept.
Seagrape (Coccoloba
uvifera) is a great tree for
most locations. This county
native can take on a variety
of shapes, depending upon
its location and pruning.
Seagrape has nice large,
almost circular, broad,
leathery, evergreen leaves
that have distinctive red
veins. The leaves frequently
turn completely red before
they fall in winter. The new
young foliage is a beautiful
bronze color which is set
off nicely against the dark
green, shiny leaves.
Seagrape is an interest-
ing, picturesque shade tree
or specimen planting for
many locations due to the
contorted, twisting trunk
and upright branching
habit. It can also be pruned
into a dense hedge, screen,
or windbreak. Because
of its size and coarse tex-
ture, seagrape as a clipped
hedge is more suited to
foundation plantings for
large buildings where it can
provide a tropical effect. It
is also used as a seaside
hedge in commercial and
home landscapes because
of its tolerance to salt, but
requires hand pruning,
since the large leaves do
not lend themselves well to
shearing. It often, exhibits
extensive salt burn after a
storm, but the new growth
generally recovers nicely.
Without pruning it may
reach a height of 25 to 30

feet.
The small ivory flowers
are produced on foot-long
stems and are followed by
dense clusters of 3/4-inch
diameter green grapes on
female trees only, ripening
to a luscious deep purple in
late summer. Males do not
produce fruit. The grapes
are often used to make a
delicious jelly and are also
popular with birds and
squirrels.
This tree has a few pest
problems and no diseases
are of major concern. The
most damaging insect pest
is the seagrape borer. It
bores into the stem killing
or weakening the growth
tip. Adults lay eggs in De-
cember, March through
May and July through Sep-
tember. The best control
it to prune out below the
damaged tip and dispose
of the trimmed material.
Another insect pest is the
seagrape gall midge. Its
larval maggot causes many
disfiguring bumps over
leaves. Control of the midge
may be difficult because
they are already inside the
leaves before you notice
the damage. The midge is
usually a spring and sum-
mer problem so you may
get some control by early
spring treatment with a sys-
temic insecticide. There is
a variegated cultivar avail-
able, which can add even

The wood is generally very
strong and durable. Once
established the tree will
perform well with little
care, except for occasional
pruning of lower branches

Leave a home for Florida cavity nesters


In south Florida we have
many cavities nesting birds
that have been having a
hard time finding enough
holes to nest in. Cavities or
holes in trees are nesting
sites for 25 bird species in
Florida. Some cavity-nest-
ers have very specific pref-
erences for their homes.
On the other hand, Caro-
lina wrens are quite adapt-
able and even have been
known to set up house-
keeping in pockets of ac-
cessible clothing articles,
mailboxes, and old hornet
nests.
Some cavity-nesters
such as woodpeckers,
Carolina chickadees, and


brown-headed nuthatches
prefer to excavate their
own nest cavities in dead
or decaying wood. Oth-
ers select old woodpecker
holes or cavities formed by
lightning, disease, decay, or
insects.
Turkey vultures are the
largest cavity-nesters with
wing-spans of about 6 feet.
Their nest site often is at or
near ground level in hollow
logs or broken trees. When
these are not available,
they will nest in caves or in
dense shrubbery.
The smallest hole-nester
in Florida is the brown-
headed nuthatch which
is only 3 1/2 inches long.


These birds often nest in
small cracks and crevices
that do not have notice-
able rounded openings like
woodpecker holes.
Nest sites for cavity-nest-
ers usually are in shorter
supply than food and water.
Dead trees (snags) often
are removed from yards,
forests and parks. When-
ever possible, snags should
be left for birds.
Due to the heat con-
straints during the nesting
season in Florida, avoid us-
ing metal or plastic for bird
nest boxes. Eggs can often
get overheated and die in
metal purple martin houses
or plastic wood duck nest


boxes. Wood offers both
good insulation and protec-
tion.
Properly built bird hous-
es can mimic natural cavi-;
ties and help to increase
the number of holes birds'
will like. Preferred habi-
tats, house dimensions,
entrance specifications,
and other special require-
ments are specific flor each
species in many cases.:FO6Y

Concern over state's obligation in citrus


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson said that
he is concerned about the
ramifications of a citrus
canker compensation law-
suit on the state's economy
and food supply.
On Dec. 10, a Palm
Beach County circuit judge
ruled the department is li-
able for paying homeown-
ers for citrus trees removed
as part of the citrus canker
eradication effort. The de-
partment had maintained
the trees were a public
nuisance because they
;were exposed to the seri-
ous bacterial disease and
would likely become in-
fected based on scientific
research on the spread of
the disease. Trees that were
already diagnosed as infect-
ed are not included in the


0
I?







W:


U


lawsuit.
Mr. Bronsoh said the rul-
ing may have a chilling ef-
fect on state agencies trying
to do their job of stopping
pest or disease outbreaks
that would wreak havoc
on the state's economy and
food supply.
S"What state agency
won't think twice about car-
rying out its constitutionally
mandated responsibility of
protecting the food supply,
public and economy when
faced with the possibility
of multi million dollar law-
suits?" Mr. Bronson said.
Mr. Bronson defended
the program saying state
and local officials some-
times have to take serious
-actions for the greater good
of all the citizens. He added
that many measures were
put in place to respond to
citizen concerns about the


eradication effort.
"We were responding
to the scientific research
that indicated trees within
1900 feet of an infected tree
would likely become in-
fected and the only way to
eradicate the disease was
to remove the infected and
exposed trees. Much test-
ing and research was done
before the 1900 foot cutting
zone was put into effect."
Citrus canker causes se-
vere blemishing of the cit-
rus fruit, leaves and stems,
causes premature fruit and
leaf drop resulting in lower
yields and without an eradi-
cation program underway,
citrus growers would have
faced severe limitations on
exporting their product to
other states and countries.
In fact, that has become the
reality. Since the program
was abandoned in 2006


when the United States
Department of Agriculture
determined that the un-
precedented 2004 and 2005
hurricanes had spread the
disease beyond the abil-
ity to eradicate, regulators:
have placed restrictions on-
citrus exports to many ar-
eas.
Mr. Bronson expressed:
disappointment that the.
lead USDA scientist of the
canker study would not
agree to testify at the trial
in Palm Beach. Because he
was not available to testify,
the facts of the study which
proved the 1900 foot cutting
zone was necessary were
not introduced at the trial,
a situation.Mr. Bronson be-
lieves led to the ruling.
Bronson indicated that
too much is at stake and
the department will appeal
the ruling.

Getting ready for Christmas; realizing the gift of one life


Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Recently, the news told
about "Knut" a one-year old
white polar j,
bear. He was
brought to
world atten-
tion when he "
was born last
year, not hav-
ing a mother
to attend and
nurture him. Samuel S.
There were Thomas
those around
who wanted to "let him die"
but they did not prevail. I re-
call looking at this infant cub,
helpless at the moment and
wondering why anyone would
want to destroy a beautiful in-
fant creature. The compassion
of the German people reached


out to him and to this animal
that is in ever-decreasing num-
bers in their arctic home where
polar bears have lived and sur-
vived for centuries. I looked at
the recent newscast with pic-
tures of a now-maturing cub
playing at the zoo and seem-
ing to be the picture of life and
health. I thought about how he
is becoming what God must
have intended for him, at least
in part, because he lived. It
also caused me to think about
another story about a wish to
take innocent life; a child born
who was as helpless as any
newborn and who had others
of his own kind wanting to take
his life. Fortunately, his parents
knew what was afoot and took
off to Egypt for three years. Now
we are getting ready to cel-
ebrate His life once more and
the coming of Jesus into the


world.
There is something about all
infants that means something
to us and that strikes a chord
within us all; no matter what
species and no matter how frag-
ile they come into this world.
As I think about getting ready
for Christmas, I am reminded
of the few days left before we
celebrate a fragile birth under
difficult circumstances, with
natural and human difficulties
surrounding it; all adding to the
miracle of what happened that
first Christmas eve. It is a story
of a mother with questions in
her heart who is "greatly trou-
bled (Luke 1:29)" and a father
who wonders what he should
do (Matthew 1:19), with both
of them being assured by God
that the life entrusted to them
was indeed very, very special.
Now, we have a few days


to prepare for celebrating that
special life once, more and to
remember just how difficult
and special that life has been to
us all. All of creation was wait-
ing for this coming and then
the life came. Today, we live on
the other side of the, expecta-
tions of our ancestors and this
sacred moment of birth, and
we can begin to appreciate all
of the difficulties and blessings
that surrounded it. I remember
in my own home what each
birth meant; the difficulties
and the joys, the promise to be
fulfilled, the growing that took
place each day as the baby
turned over for the first time or
said the first word. As we get
ready for Christmas, we have
the answer to the question that
John asked Jesus, "Are you the
one who is to come or are we
to wait for another? (Matthew


The one baby who changed the world


11:2 3)," We have something
special to celebrate because
the faithful can affirm "Yes, this
is the one that God sent!" The
story moves me to be thankful
in a way that those who came
before Christmas could not un-
derstand or appreciate. Now
I still have some time left be-
fore the "big day" and can get
ready even if I know how the
story came out. In reflecting,
I can be ever so much more
thankful and joyful as I can get


ready to hear the story once
more. I can think how blessed
we all are; the gift of life and.
life abundant, life eternal and
all that came through that baby
in the manger under difficult
circumstances and at a diffi-
cult time.
The realization of Paul,
"Thanks be to God who gives
us the victory (1 Corinthi-
ans 15:57)" is given to us all.
Thanks be to God for all this
life is, and can be.

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Over 2000 years ago a baby
was born who would change
the world. The name of that
baby was, of
course...
If you were
thinking Jesus, .
you are getting .
ahead of the
story. The name
of the baby who ,."
would change 1 ,'
the world was John
Gaius Octavius. Hicks
He was born
into a royal family; his great un-
cle was a fellow named Julius
Caesar. Julius adopted Octavius
and made him his heir. When Ju-
lius died, Octavius was forced to
share power with two men: Mar-
cus Antonius and Marcus Lepi-
dus. Antonius married Octavius'


sister, but deserted her in favor
of the queen of Egypt, a woman
named Cleopatra. Octavius'didn't
like the way Antonius treated his
sister, so he waged war on Anto-
nius and won. He consolidated
his power and in 27 B.C., the
Roman Senate granted Octavian
the name Augustus, meaning
"the exalted." Little Octavius had
grown up to become Caesar Au-
gustus, the first Roman Emperor
and the most powerful man the
world had ever known.
Augustus decided that the
people under his reign should be
counted so he could effectively
tax them. So, about 8 BC, he
called for a census. Taking a cen-
sus took time in those days, and
it wasn't until about four years
later that word of the census
reached the Judeans. The gov-
ernor decided that the best way
to accomplish this census was to
have each person return to their


own town to be registered.
As the Scriptures tell us, "Jo-
seph also went from the town of
Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to
the city of David called Bethle-
hem, because he was descended
from the house and family of
David. He went to be registered
with Mary, to whom he was en-
gaged and who was expecting a
child."
At the Bethlehem Inn, no one
worried about those who had
been turned away from the inn.
There had been many. The inn-
keeper had simply apologized
and said, "We are full and there
is no room in my inn this night."
But one young couple, the wife
heavy with child, he could not
turn away. He gave them a place
in the stable behind the inn.
So, out in the stable, with
most unaware of what was hap-
pening, a baby was about to be
born. This was God's plan. This


was God's love coming into the
world not with swords and
chariots, not with great books
and literature, not in fine build-
ings and imperial capitals, but
as a baby in a stable in the City
of David. Those who missed the
arrival of God's Son on that Holy
Night so long ago missed it not
because of evil acts or malice,
but simply because their atten-
tion was elsewhere. They just
weren't looking.
Even today, people are still
missing the coming of Christ
because their attention is else-
where. We are busy people with
busy lives and big plans. But God
has a bigger plan, and that plan is
revealed in a baby born in a man-
ger. And so Christmas comes year
after year as a reminder to us all.
And take note, God will even
use the decree of an emperor as
a tool in the carrying out of His
plan. God will even use you.


Sing "God Rest Ye Merry Gentlemen"


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
One of our Christmas Carols,
"God Rest Ye Merry.Gentlemen",
has the sentence, "O tidings of
Comfort and joy". Think with me
of the "Comfort and Joy" of be-
ing a Faithful Christian.
We KNOW all the time that
we are without the condemning
guilt of sin in the sight of God (I
John 1:7).
We KNOW that whether
Jesus returns before we should
have died, or returns after our
death, we shall be caught up to
meet Him in the air, and so shall
we ever be with the Lord (I Thes-
salonians 4:17).
We KNOW that our Creator
and Savior hears us each time
we pray in Jesus' name (I John


5:14-15).
We KNOW that all things
do, and will continue, to work to-
gether for good (Romans 8:28).
We KNOW .that we shall
never be tempted above that we
are able to bear, and that God
will supply an avenue of escape
every time we are tempted to sin
(I Corinthians 10:13).
We KNOW that God is
close, and so concerned for us,
that he numbers the hairs of our
heads (Matthew 10:29-31), that
Jesus knows us by name (John
10:14), and that he has supplied
us with a personal ministering
angel (Mathew 18:10; Psalm
34:7; Acts 12:15; Hebrews 1:7; I
Pete 5:6-7).
We KNOW that the very
Spirit of God Himself, the Holy
Spirit, literally dwells within us,


shedding God's love abroad in
our hearts (Romans 5:5), leading
us (Romans 8:14), strengthening
us (Ephesians 3:16), interceding
for us in prayer (Romans 8:26),
bearing witness with our spirit
that we are the children of God
(Romans 8:16; Acts 5:32; I Corin-
thians 6:19-20; Luke 11:5-13).
We KNOW that the sacri-
fices of time, money, social posi-
tion, and popularity that we glad-
ly make in this life, are nothing
when compared with the inheri-
tance we shall receive as children
of God (Romans 8:16-18; I Peter
1:3-19; Matthew 25:14-46; Mark
10:29-30).
We KNOW that in our obe-
dience from the heart to the gos-
pel of Christ (baptism) we have
been added to God's family, the
church, forgiven, justified, re-

generated, adopted (Mark 16:16;
Acts 2:38; Romans 6:3-18; Colos-
sians 2:11-13; Romans 5:9; John
3:5; Titus 3:5; Galatians 4:5-7).
We KNOW that when the
earth and all the heavenly bodies
shall be no more, having been
melted with fervent heat, we'll
be living eternally in unspeak-
able joy, where there will be no
more fatigue, pain, disease, suf-
fering or sorrow (II Peter 3:7-14;
Revelation 20:11-22:21).
Yes, we KNOW these things
assuredly, because we have a
faith that is more reliable than
anything we can know in this
world by human wisdom. The
Bible tells us so! This is the
"Comfort and Joy" of being a tru-
ly Faithful Christian. If you are not
one, won't you become one and
share with us in these blessings?

Health Department cautions against CO poisoning


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
urges Floridians to take precau-
tions to prevent carbon monox-
ide (CO) poisoning during the
cold winter months. As tem-
peratures drop, the potential
for CO poisonings and deaths
rise. "Carbon monoxide can
be fatal if people are exposed
to high levels of CO, even for
short periods of time," Dr. Lisa
Conti, Director of the Division
of Environmental Health, said.
"Floridians who use indoor gas
heaters and fireplaces need to
ensure direct exhaust venting
to the outside, regularly check
and maintain fuel burning ap-
pliances, and carefully monitor
themselves and loved ones for


signs of CO poisoning." Invis-
ible, odorless and tasteless, CO
is a highly poisonous gas pro-
duced by burning fuels such as
gasoline, natural gas, kerosene,
charcoal and wood. Inside a
home, CO can come from a
gas-fueled furnace, gas water
heater, gas clothes dryer, gas
ranges, kerosene space heat-
ers, portable generators, gas
or charcoal grills, fireplaces or
wood stoves. The risk of illness
or death increases with the level
of CO in the air and the amount
of time exposed. Dangerous CO
levels can result when home ap-
pliances are not properly main-
tained or when used incorrectly.
Anyone who suspects symp-
toms of CO poisoning should go


outside immediately. If a person
has collapsed or is not breath-
ing, call 911 for emergency
medical assistance immediately
from a safer location (outside or
from a neighbor's home). Signs
of carbon monoxide poisoning
include: fatigue, chest pain, im-
paired vision and coordination,
headaches, dizziness, confu-
sion, nausea.
How to prevent carbon mon-
oxide poisoning: install and use
fuel-burning appliances accord-
ing to manufacturer instruc-
tions. Have fuel-burning appli-
ances inspected and serviced
annually by a licensed contrac-
tor. Inspect exhaust ventilation
systems, including chimneys,
flues and vents, every year. Nev-


er burn charcoal inside a house,
garage, vehicle or tent, even
in a fireplace. Avoid using un-
vented gas or kerosene heaters
in enclosed spaces, especially
sleeping areas. NEVER leave an
automobile running in a garage,
even with the garage door open.
Do not leave the rear window or
tailgate of a vehicle open while
driving. CO from the exhaust
can be pulled inside the car, van
or camper. Install CO alarms
inside the house. Purchase
battery operated CO alarms or
plug-in CO alarms with. battery
backup according to manufac-
turer's installation instructions.
The CO alarm should meet
the most recent UL 2034 stan-
dard, IAS 6-96 standard or the


Give the New Year a heart healthy start


(ARA) Every year around
this time, people start to give se-
rious thought to the resolutions
they will make to improve their
lives in the New Year. Among the
more popular ones are: to save
more money, to eat healthier and
to exercise more.
For the over 5 million Ameri-
cans diagnosed with heart failure,
a progressive condition in which
the heart's muscle becomes
weakened after it is injured from
something like a heart attack or
high blood pressure, the latter
two couldn't be more important.
If you are already 70 or older,
you have a 10 percent or greater
chance of developing heart fail-
ure and a lifetime risk for eventu-
ally having heart failure that may
be as high as 1 in 5 individuals so
this information is important for
everyone to know.
One of the most important
moves you can make in the com-
ing year is to develop a treatment
plan that is right for you, accord-
ing to Clyde Yancy, MD, chair of
the education committee for the
Heart Failure Society of America, a
non-profit organization of health
care professionals and research-
ers who are dedicated to enhanc-
ing quality and duration of life for
patients with heart failure and
preventing the condition in those
at risk. "In the past, people with
heart failure were advised to rest
and give up many of their usual
activities, but recent research
- has-siho~wrn tia. activity can help
them feel better, may decrease
symptoms and may improve the


heart's function," Dr. Yancy says.
Whether you've been diag-
nosed with heart failure, or are
just trying to prevent yourself
from falling victim to this major
cardiovascular disorder that is on
the rise, here are some tips on
how to take charge of your con-
dition:

Become more active
Start by picking a simple aero-
bic activity that you like, such
as gardening, walking, fishing,
swimming or biking, and do it
regularly. The goal for most peo-
ple with heart disease or at-risk
for heart disease is to accumu-
late at least 30 minutes of mild
to moderate activity per day on
most days of the week. Note that
you do not have to be active for
30 minutes in a row to benefit.
For example, you can be active
for three 10-minute blocks.
Whatever activity you choose,
do it slowly and gradually. Spend
a few minutes warming up and
cooling down before and after
each activity session to avoid in-
juring yourself and stressing your
heart. Warming up by walking or
stretching helps your body and
your heart adjust to the increased
demands of activity, and stretch-
es tendons and muscles to avoid
cramping. Cooling down allows
your heart rate, blood pressure
and other body functions to re-
turn to their usual resting levels
and brings down your adrenaline
level gradually.
Although regular activity is
good for you, you should not ex-


ercise or increase your activities
when you feel exhausted, have a
fever or infection, have chest pain
or are experiencing more short-
ness of breath symptoms at rest
than usual. Be certain that you
select activities that are not too
strenuous or risky. Remember,
moderation is the key. Above all,
do not start a new exercise pro-
gram or engage in a new activity
without reviewing this with your
physician.
Change your diet
In addition to staying active,
it's also important for patients
with heart failure to'change their
diets. The most critical change
they'll be advised to make it to
cut back on sodium (salt) intake
and here's why. Heart failure
causes the body to hold on to ex-
tra sodium, which in turn causes
extra fluid to build up in your
body. The extra fluid makes your
heart work harder.
Cutting back on sodium is ad-
mittedly a challenge because salt
is everywhere, in canned soups,
canned vegetables, fast food,
restaurant meals and processed
foods like frozen dinners, boxed
noodle and rice dishes. So, even
if ybu do not add salt while cook-
ing or use a salt shaker at the
table, you may be eating too
much.
What can you do to cut back
on the sodium (salt)? Here are
four tips from the Heart Failure
Society of America:
1. Instead of salt, flavor your
food with black, cayenne and


lemon pepper; fresh herbs like
garlic, onion powder, dill, parsley
and rosemary; lemon juice; and
flavored extracts like vanilla, al-
mond, etc.
2. Adapt preferred foods to
low-sodium versions. Instead of
buying lunch meats, which typi-
cally contain high amounts of so-
dium, you can cook fresh chicken,
turkey, roast beef or pork without
adding salt and then cut it up for
sandwiches the next day.
3. If you like soup, instead of
buying the canned version which
is high in sodium and preserva-
tives, you can cut up fresh vege-
tables, put them in a slow cooker
and use herbs and spices for sea-
soning.
4. Pick foods naturally low in
sodium, like fresh fruits and veg-
etables, fresh meat, poultry and
fish.
It can be difficult to change
your eating habits. It may take
weeks before you enjoy the taste
of low-sodium foods, but your
taste buds will adjust. Eventually
you may not even miss the salt.
Your heart will thank you, for the

Hospital, Richard A. Machek, a Health Care District board member and state representa-

Glades Healthcare Foundation. These 11 prominent figures are standing here on the muck
soil, ready to celebrate the construction of the new regional hospital during the Dec. 14
dedication ceremony.


Hospital
Continued From Page 1
lyst for economic development
locally. "
"We're not only construct-
ing a hospital, we're building
the foundation for our children's
and grandchildren's future," Mr.
Goodlet said. "This project will
be an economic stimulus to the
Glades area and will help attract
and keep professionals and phy-
sicians in the area."
The new regional hospital,
which is to be located on the
southwest corner of U.S. High-
way 441 and Hooker Highway,
will be erected on approximate-
ly 50 acres of land. Essentially,
the new hospital will be replac-
ing the current Glades General
Hospital, located on South Main
Street in Belle Glade.
The new hospital, health care


officials said, will be providing 70
single occupancy rooms, as well
as separate patient elevators and
consulting rooms, among the
many features of the modern-
ized facility.
Other major features of the
hospital include six private in-
tensive care unit rooms, a host
of community rooms for educa-
tional gatherings and a separate
emergency room/main entrance
drop-off. These amenities and
much more are designed to en-
hance patient privacy, according
to health care officials.
David M. Zechman, the CEO
of Glades General Hospital, is
adamant that the facilities will
be of top-notch quality, which
will, in turn, result in world-class
quality care for Glades-area pa-
tients in the future.
"Patient privacy and comfort
are priorities in the new hospital
design," Mr. Zechman said. "It's


going to be a great environment
in which to work, receive medi-
cal care and learn about ways to
stay healthy through educational
programs for our community."
So far, the Health Care Dis-
trict has contributed $50 mil,
lion toward the construction of
the new hospital, out of the ap-
proximately $73 million that is
needed. '
The other $23 million, how-
ever, will be raised by the Glades
Healthcare Foundation, which
was created last year to support
health care advancements in the
area.
Overall, Mr. Zechman has
been pleased with the ongoing
support from the community as
it moves to bring a modernized
hospital to the Glades area.
"I'm just pleased for all the
local leaders that worked so
hard over the last several years,"
Mr. Zechman said. "I'm just glad
that the leaders are now able to
see the rewards of their labor."
Anyone who would like to
contribute toward the Glades
Healthcare Foundation or would
like more information is encour-

resigned from the post.
It was a tightly contested
battle, with all of the candidates
- Regina Bohlen, Hugh Branch,
Camille Slydell, Diane Walker and
Royal York lining up for inter-
views prior to last Tuesday's com-
mission meeting.
Most questions focused on
how each candidate would make
a difference in the city.
After the interviews, the votes
were tallied up by City Clerk
Raquel Diaz and Finance Director
Derrek Moore. In the end, the two
highest scores went to Mr. Branch
and Ms. Walker.
"I think any one of the candi-
dates would be an excellent city
commissioner," Commissioner
Babb said after the count. "I've
been very impressed with Ms.
Walker's consistent attendance at
the commission meetings. I don't
know of one person who has at-
tended as many meetings. Based
on her not having an opportunity
to serve, I would like to see Ms.
Walker get her chance."
Mayor J.P. Sasser seemed to be
in favor of the other top vote-get-
ter, however.
"The thing that sticks in my
mind is that I thought we would
fill out the seat for someone who
wouldn't run for the next term,"
Mayor Sasser said, responding
to Commissioner Babb's recom-
mendation. "Mr. Branch said
that he wouldn't run for the next
term."
Vice-Mayor Crawford agreed
with Commissioner Babb's re-
quest, adding that the opportu-
nity would give her time to test
the waters to.see if she wants to


continue with the experience,
given the fact the elections would
convene in March.
After nominating Ms. Walker,
Vice-Mayor Crawford said he
would not want for the four com-
missioners to have to resort to
picking a commissioner from a
hat. So the vice-mayor made a
motion to break the tie.
With Commissioner Babb
seconding the motion, Ms. Walk-
er was selected as the new com-
missioner.
After two previous attempts at
serving as a commissioner, the
third time was the charm for Ms.
Walker.
"I am pleased with the selec-
tion and the process," Ms. Walker
said. "I look forward to working
with my fellow commissioners
to move our city forward. I have
been very active with the city of
Pahokee and I will continue to


be about the business of bringing
our community together. I'm hap-
py for the opportunity to serve in
this position and will make every
effort to make a difference.
Ms. Walker will be sworn in
as commissioner during the Jan.
8 commission meeting. This will
be first of four meetings that she
will hold the post before the seat
is up for election, which is slated
for March 11.
Commissioner Allie Biggs;
along with the rest of the com-
missioners, hope that Ms. Walker
will have a successful run as the
new commissioner.,
"I want to welcome Diane as
our new commissioner," Com-
missioner Allie Biggs said. "Good
things come to those who wait.",

Farm Family of the Year
During a recent Farm Bureau Banquet and Awards Cere-
mony at the Everglades Research Center in Belle Glade,
the OB. McClure and Robert D. Apelgren families were
honored as the 2007 Farm Family of the Year. The presti-
gious award, previously won by the likes of the Schlect-
er, Wedgeworth and Orsenigo families, was presented
by Wynn Jones, the banquet's master of ceremony. At
the banquet, there was a moment of silence for Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office Deputies Donta Manuel
and Jonathan Wallace. Also, it was announced that Fritz
Stein is slated to be inducted in the Farm Bureau Hall of
Fame early next year. Mark Fodders, the son-in-law of
Virginia Apelgren said of the award: "It makes me proud
of my heritage and our family is extremely proud of be-
ing part of the Glades farming community." From left to

But those reasons are not what
angered Ms. Kendall the most.
"I feel that if Mr. Underwood
wants to be the city manager
in Belle Glade, then he needs
to hold his word," Vice-Mayor
Kendall said. "Honesty and in-
tegrity of a city manager are keys
to the forward movement of all
our citizens He said that he only

The winner of the regional

Underwood's actions, I could no
longertrust him to hold truth to
his words."
Now, the vice-mayor is doubt-
ful of the city's direction after the
shocking decision.
"It's apparent that as Mr. Un-
derwood moves the city forward,
only a few will be.moving with
him," the vice-mayor said.
