Abidjan Estates vows to move forward


Group promises 76
completed homes
before 2009

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE -- Abidjan Es-
tates in Belle Glade has experi-
enced a host of delays since its
introduction to the community
years ago. The promise of new
and affordable homes in the
Glades area caught the attention
of leaders and residents who
were hopeful that the project


would also serve as an econom-
ic stimulus for the area.
Years later, the project con-
tinues to be pushed back by set-
backs, drawing outcries from the
community.
Dr. Doroty Walker, the execu-
tive director of We Help Commu-
nity Development Corporation,
which is handling the project,
explains some of the delays and
makes a renewed promise to
build 76 homes before 2009.
According to her, the primary
reason for the large part of the
delay is due to the reorganization
of the city's planning and zoning


board in 2004.
"Once the planning and zon-
ing board was reconstituted, we
had to start the planning process
again," Dr. Walker said.
At that point, according to Dr.
Walker, We Help CDC had about
$10 million in commitments for
funding from a variety of govern-
mental and lending bases.
iTo other major contributing
factors in the delay of construc-
tion were the fact that the city
did not have a full-time building
official at the time. Dr. Walker
claims that the busy hurricane
years also stalled progress.


"After the infrastructure was
in place and We Help CDC
started to construct the homes,
the Dominion factor came into
play," Dr. Walker said, pointing
to another Glades project that
never came to fruition. "That's
when the community lost con-
fidence in the developers. We
help CDC was not involved with
Dominion at all."
Dr. Walker seems to be proud
of what has been accomplished
thus far.
"A lot of people thought this
project was dead," Dr.'Walker
said. "What we're doing is


building the best houses for the
residents of our community. It's
very important for citizens to
understand that we're not a fly-
by-night, pie-in-the sky develop-
ment."
Currently, 15 homes have
been built at Abidjan. When the
two-phase project is completed
- and the group cannot provide
a timeline -- over 150 units will
be constructed, according to Dr.
Walker.
The Abidjan Estates, located
behind the Winn-Dixie super-
market in Belle Glade, hosted an

Rosenwald Elementary Toy Giveaway
At Rosenwald Elementary School in South Bay on Dec. 20, the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office held its first toy giveaway. The entire student body received toys for the
holidays, courtesy of the sheriff's office and K-B Toys. Here, you see one very happy
kindergarten class of 16 students, who are taught by Mr. Rickey Woods. Deputy Sheriff
Joao Pacheco, a Massachusetts native and first-year officer, enjoyed some fun time
with the students at the event. In fact, the deputy disclosed that he would like to start a
toy giveaway of his own in the future.

Morris of the Palm

Here, the lieutenant

having kids of my own,
I know how expensive
providing a Christmas

ris. "So, if you could
put a smile on one
kid's face and give to
the less fortunate, then
that's what Christmas
is all about."

BELLE GLADE -- With the
holiday season here, many
criminals are increasing their
activities.
Cars and jewelry and bur-
glaries are commonplace,
but, recently, the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office has
noticed a surge in theft of
ATV vehicles.
According to an affida-
vit provided by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice (PBSO), a Yahama four-
wheeler, valued at $8,000,
was stolen from the business


of Jim Hook's Welding, Inc.

Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge to benefit from $21.5 million project


WEST PALM BEACH -- An in-
novative project to divert and treat
urban stormwater runoff before
it enters the Arthur R. Marshall
Loxahatchee National Wildlife
Refuge is moving into its second
phase thanks to an ongoing part-
nership between the South Flor-
ida Water Management District
(SFWMD) and the Village of Wel-
lington. The SFWMD Governing
Board recently approved a $21.5
million contract with the Village
for the second phase of the Acme
Basin B Project.
The project provides environ-
mental restoration benefits by-
constructing a 368-acre storm-
water impoundment area and
pumping station. Together, they
will create a means to store phos-
phorus-laden stormwater runoff
that cari be rmtoved' into canals

and treatment areas rather than
left to flow into the wildlife ref-
uge. Land needed for the project
was also transferred from SFW-
MD to the Village. Phase 2 of the
Acme Basin B Project follows the
successful completion of the S7
Pump Station, which will work
in concert with the planned im-
poundment area.
"The District is making ev-
ery effort to improve the quality
of water flowing into the Ever-
glades and Loxahatchee National
Wildlife Refuge," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "This cooperative ef-
fort with the Village of Welling-
ton demonstrates our continued
commitment to environmental
restoration."
Once constructed, the im-
poundment will'" ser'Ve as' as


holding and settling area for
s'tormwater runoff, providing im-
mediate water quality improve-
ments. From there, water can be
moved through canals for coastal
discharge or to another treatment
wetland, Stormwater Treatment
Area 1 East. It is anticipated that
most of the water from the im-
poundment area will receive this
additional treatment.
Stormwater treatment areas
(STAs), a key component of Ev-
erglades restoration, are con-
structed wetlands that use plants
to clean phosphorus from water.
Since 1994, the State has con-
verted a total of 52,000 acres of
former farmland south of Lake
Okeechobee into STAs. Since that
time, the six "green" treatment fa-
cilities have retained and prevent-
ed 960 metric-tons of phc'spt hr us

Over the last decade, the STAs / S -5

During Water Year 2007 (May '06
through April '07), the STAs cap-
tured and treated 900,000 acre-
feet of water, reducing phospho-

Grass by 71 percent.
Since 2000, Florida has invest-
ed close to $1.8 billion to improve
water quality in the Everglades.
The District's budget this year
dedicates $111 million to further
improve the quality of water en-
tering the Everglades Protection
Area. Investments in environ-
mental restoration represent a
full two-thirds of the District's en-
tire-proposed FY2008 budget., .

Wal-Mart FLW Series to visit Lake Okeechobee


$1 million event to
feature anglers from
34 states, Japan

CLEWISTON The $10 mil-
lion Wal-Mart FLW Series will visit
Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston
Jan. 23-26 for its first BP Eastern
Division tournament of the sea-
son. Hosted by Roland & Mary
Ann Martin's Marina & Resort, the
tournament will feature as many
as 400 top bass anglers from 34
states, Japan and Canada casting
for top awards of $125,000 in the
Pro Division and $25,000 in the
Co-angler Division.
"The water has been extreme-
ly low and FLW Outdoors has
worked with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion to come up with alternate
plans for the event," said FLW
Outdoors' Director of Tourna-
ment Operations Bill Taylor. "As a
result, anglers will be able to lock
outside of Lake Okeechobee and
fish up to the S-78 Franklin lock
on the Caloosahatchee River as
well as the S-80 lock on the St. Lu-
cie Canal. Anglers also may fish
pools D and E and up to the S-65
C lock on the Kissimmee River."
With the water as low as it is,
the move will open up a lot more
water for anglers to fish.
"There's still a lot of fish to be
caught in the lake, but they tend
to roam around more when they
don't have those massive grass
beds," said BP pro J.T. Kenney
of Port Charlotte, who posted
an 1 th-place finish at the Lake
Okeechobee event in 2007. "The
water's so low that the fish can
be found clustered around small
depressions and other similar
spots."
Kenney said the combina-
tion of low water and cold fronts
could produce catches similar to
the 2007 event.
"You'll have guys bring in a
huge catch one day and then two
smaller bags the next couple of
days," Kenney said. "The fish get
unpredictable. They'll be there
one day and they're gone the
Next. But if a guy catches a big
bag one day and Ihen eight or 10
-pounrds the other t\o( dj\s, he's
going to be right where he needs
to be it end up near th-e top."
Kenne\ said the areas opened
up bt thet Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conser vaii n Co'mmissiorn have
great populations of bass. While
he realizes the numbers of fish in
S trti r'vers and canals mrrar nr't be
as great as the numbers found in
the lake, he said the fish should
be more predictable.

event.


deeper waters of the rivers and
canals will likely be the order of
the day for tournament fisher-
men according to Kenney. He
predicts that weights should be
solid for the tournament and an-
glers could need weights nearing
40 pounds to make the cut and
as much as 65 pounds to win.
Anglers will take off from
Roland & Mary Ann Martin's
Marina & Resort located at 920
E. Del Monte Ave. in Clewiston
at 7 each morning. Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday's weigh-ins
will also be held at the marina
beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday's
final weigh-in will be held at the
Wal-Mart store located at 1005
W. Sugarland Hwy. in Clewiston
beginning at 4 p.m. Children will
be treated to a Family Fun Zone
prior to Saturday's weigh-in from
.noon to 4 p.m. at Wal-Mart. Ac-
tivities in the Family Fun Zone
include the Kellogg's trout pond,
a Ranger boat simulator and as-
sorted fishing-themed games. All
activities are free and open to the
public.
The entire field competes for
the first three days of FLW Series
events Co-angler winners are de-
termined on day three based on
the heaviest accumulated three-
day weight. The top 10 profes-
sionals continue competition on
day four, and the winner is deter-
mined by the heaviest accumu-


lated weight from all four days.
In FLW Series competition,
pros and co-anglers are ran-
domly paired each day, with pros
supplying the boat, controlling
boat movement and competing
against other pros. Co-anglers
fish from the back deck against
other co-anglers. The total purse
for the Lake Okeechobee tour-
nament is $1 million, including
$10,000 through 50th place and
$2,000 through 75th place in the
Pro Division. Ultimately, all an-
glers in the tournament will also
be competing for valuable points
in the hope of qualifying for the
Wal-Mart FLW Series Fish-Off
and a shot at advancing to the
$2 million, 2009 Forrest Wood.
Cup, where the winning pro will
earn as much as $1 million the
sport's biggest award.
Coverage of the Lake
Okeechobee FLW Series tourna-
ment will be broadcast to 81 mil-
lion FSN (Fox Sports Net) sub-

Land acquisition aids Indian River Lagoon restoration


WEST PALM BEACH -- Resto-
ration of the Indian River Lagoon
moved another step forward as
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) Govern-
ing Board approved a 1,772-acre
land acquisition in St. Lucie
County. The site will be used in
conjunction with other acquired
lands for two storage reservoirs
designed to improve the timing
and quality of water flowing into
the lagoon.
"The District's investment in
this land is an important mile-
stone in the restoration of the
Indian River Lagoon," said Me-
lissa Meeker, who represents the
Treasure Coast on the SFWMD
Governing Board. "The C-23/24
project is critical to capturing and
treating water currently going to
tide and impacting one of Flori-
da's most important and beauti-
ful estuaries."
When complete, the two


reservoirs will provide approxi-
mately 92,000 acre-feet of water
storage to capture water from
the C-23 and C-24 canals before it
flows into the North Fork of the St.
Lucie River. An adjacent Storm-
water Treatment Area (STA) will
be built to improve water quality.
Purchase of the 1,772-acre parcel
completes the land acquisition
necessary for the north (C-23)
reservoir and achieves 80 percent
of the land needed for the south
(C-24) reservoir. All lands needed
for construction of the 2,568-acre
STA are in public ownership.
The District is investing $50.5
million over three years for the
newest land parcel. The owner
will turn over title to the land at
the closing, which is scheduled
for next month. SFWMD will
then receive payments on the
land while it remains in citrus
production until construction of
the reservoirs and STA begins.


The C-23 and C-24 reservoirs
and treatment wetland are a part
of the $1.365 billion plan to re-
store the Indian River Lagoon,
a series of projects included in
the state-federal partnership to
restore America's Everglades.
Federal participation in these
restoration projects was recently
authorized by Congress as part of
the 2007 Water Reso.urces Devel-
opment Act.
The Indian River Lagoon-
South restoration project will re-
turn historic flows of cleaner wa-
ter across more than 90,000 acres
of natural land spanning Martin,
St. Lucie and Okeechobee coun-
ties. The plan includes construc-
tion and operation of 12,600 acres
of inland reservoirs and 9,000
acres of pollution-filtering treat-
ment marsh. The reservoirs and
treatment marshes, which will
provide approximately 170,000
acre-feet of water storage, will


help to restore habitat, improve
water quality and return a natural
flow of fresh water to the St. Lucie
and Indian River estuaries.

Chickens on the road
On Thursday, Dec. 20 there were two chickens which somehow crossed a street in South
Bay without getting hit by any vehicles. The chickens may have found some shelter after
the fact, considering how cool it was on that day.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and

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

Frank Hunter to speak about Dali


PALM BEACH -- From Jan. 4
through 6, 2008, Onessimo Fine
Art in PGA Commons will host
informative talks by Frank Hunt-
er, Director 9f the Salvador Dali
Archives in New York City. Mr.
Hunter's talks are part of a Dali
show hosted by Onessimo titled
"Dali 100 Years". The exhibit is
one of the largest showings of
Dali pieces in the area and in-
cludes over 50 works on paper,

The Dali show at Onessimo

Salvador Dali is one of the
most influential artists of the
modern era.' Though he was
classically trained, Dali was at
the forefront.of the Surrealist
movement often using dream-
like imagery that defied reason.
Not only did Dali paint, this
modern master made a num-
ber of contributions to theatre,
film, fashion and photography.


With his distinct, waxed up-
right moustache, Dali was an
eccentric who was identified by
his larger than life personality
as well as the originality of his
work, and will be remembered
forever through his contribu-
tions to the arts.
Onessimo Fine Art is the lat-
est endeavor of renowned gal-
lery owner Debra Onessimo.
Located in PGA Commons just
west of Military Trail on PGA
Boulevard (4530 PGA Boule-
vard), Onessimo Fine Art fea-
tures an exceptional and diverse
collection of contemporary


blue-chip art, old and modern
masters and emerging talent
including an array of works by
internationally renowned artists
Jamali, Yuroz, McKenzie Thor-
pe, Picasso, Matisse and much
more. In addition the gallery

well as a collection of contem-
porary photography.

Marshall foundation kicks off new year


Restoration event to
incorporate teen's
Eagle Scout project

WEST PALM BEACH -- Kick off
2008 in the Everglades with the
Arthur R. Marshall Foundation!
The non-profit environmental or-
ganization will hold its first tree-
planting event on Saturday, Jan. 5
on Torry Island, near Belle Glade.
The public is invited to this free,
outdoor event, which will give-
citizens a chance to take part in
hands-on Everglades restoration.
"What could be better than
starting the year by helping .the
environment, spending time out-
doors and having a great time
with family and friends?", asked
Eric Gehring, Director of Educa-
tion for the West Palm Beach-
based Marshall Foundation. "This
is the perfect time of year to visit
the Everglades and we're hoping
that as many people as possible
will join us to plant wetland trees
and learn about Florida's native


ecosystem."
The tree-planting will take
place from 9 a.m. until 12 p.m.,
and is appropriate for ages 5 and
up. Volunteers are asked to wear
closed-toe shoes, hats and sun-
protection. A light breakfast and
bottled water will be provided.
This event is rain or shine, except
in the event of extremely inclem-
ent weather.
Founded in 1998, the Marshall
Foundation aims to restore the
Everglades through education
and public outreach. The organi-
zation's annual tree-plantings are
designed to help citizens of all
ages develop a sense of steward-
ship over Florida's one-of-a-kind
wetland wilderness."
The Jan. 5, project will take
place on Torry Island, a 700-
acre tract of abandoned farm-
land at the southern end of Lake
Okeechobee. One volunteer who
will definitely attend is Pete Lan-
sing, a 17-year-old West Palm
Beach Boy Scout who is working
to attain the rank of Eagle Scout.


"I've loved the Everglades
since I was young and I wanted
my Eagle Scout work to make a
lasting difference for the environ-
ment," said the Suncoast High
School senior, who, along with
fellow scouts from Troop 120 in
West Palm Beach, will attempt to
plant 200-400 native pond apple
and cypress trees on the island.
The objective is to replace the
wetland forest that once existed
on Torry Island. Once restored,
the area will help filter Lake
Okeechobee's water, provide
habitat to birds, animals, insects
and fish, and hopefully become
an ecotourism _destination for
tourists and locals.
In addition to planting trees,
the scouts and other volunteers
will spend time weeding and
maintaining some of the thou-
sands of young trees already on
the island. "Many have suffered
as a result of the recent drought",
said Pete. "A lot of the trees are re-
ally overgrown with vines, which
thrive in the dry conditions. If we


don't take the vines off, the trees
will die for lack of sunlight," he
explained.
Volunteers for the tree-plant-
ing are asked to RSVP by phone
or e-mail before Wed. Jan. 3, to
(561) 805-8733 or PlantCypress@
aol.com
ABOUT THE MARSHALL
FOUNDATION
Founded in 1998, the non-
profit Arthur R. Marshall Foun-
dation has three goals; restoring
original plant life and water flow
patterns to the greater Everglades
ecosystem, educating young
people and the public about Ev-
erglades ecology, and delivering
the message of restoration to as
many people as possible through
comprehensive public outreach
programs. In recent years, the
Marshall Foundation has planted
over 84,000 native Florida trees
in wetland areas, awarded over
$300,000 in scholarships and
internships, and involved more
than 5,000 volunteers in hands-
on restoration projects.

Glades Healthcare Foundation names new board member


WEST PALM BEACH -- Sam L.
Ellington, Managing Director of
Wells Fargo Insurance Services,
has joined Glades Healthcare
Foundation's board of directors.
Mr. Ellington joins a board com-
mitted to leading the $73 million
fund raising campaign for a new
70-bed regional hospital in the
Glades as its first project, with a
long-term vision of advancing
healthcare throughout the com-
munities of western Palm Beach
County.
"This is a region poised for
growth," said David Goodlett,
Glades Healthcare Foundation
chairman. "With the new hos-
pital, we're helping to build an
important component of the re-
gion's infrastructure as commer-
cial and residential development
continues to move farther west
in Palm Beach County. We need
strong business and community
leaders like Sam to help us make


Sam L. Ellington


advancing healthcare a critical
part of that growth."
Mr. Ellington, a Clewiston na-
tive, has served in various roles
during his 38 year career in the
property/casualty insurance in-


dustry, including vice president of
Cornelius, Johnson & Clark, and
currently as managing director of
Wells Fargo Insurance Services.
He has been actively involved
in both professional and com-
munity organizations, including
the Insurance Board of the Palm
Beaches as past president, the
Forum Club of the Palm Beaches,
serving as past mayor and coun-
cilman of Lake Clarke Shores,
Florida, and has held every major
office at United Methodist Church
of the Palm Beaches in West Palm
Beach. He currently serves on the
board of directors for the South
Florida Fair.
"As someone who grew up
in Clewiston, I understand first-
hand the importance of having
access to quality healthcare in
the Lakes Region," said Mr. El-
lington. "Glades General Hospi-
tal has always been there for the
community. Now we need to be


there for the dedicated doctors,
nurses and staff and allow them
to deliver the compassionate care
that they're known for, free from'
the every-day obstacles of work-
ing in an outdated facility."
Construction for the new 70-
bed regional hospital began in
November 2007 with an open-
ing scheduled for early 2010.
The Health Care District of Palm
Beach County has committed $50
million toward the $73 million
project. Glades Healthcare Foun-
dation is leading the capital fund
raising campaign to complete the
financial support needed for the
project.

Puli Noice


By Tom Nordlie
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE --- Home buyers ap-
preciate the benefits of "green" com-
munities, but residents don't neces-
sarily lead more eco-friendly lives
than their neighbors in traditional
homes, according to two University
of Florida studies conducted in the
fast-growing state.
The findings could mean some
homeowners in green communities
don't know enough about how to
reduce their environmental impact,
said Mark Hostetler, an associate pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
Green communities are designed
to have less environmental impact
than traditional housing develop-
ments. The homes often feature en-
ergy-saving appliances, extensive in-
sulation and yards with native plants;
common areas typically include lots
of green space and drainage systems
that minimize stormwater runoff.
People moving into green devel-
opments may simply be interested in
open space, energy efficient homes or
the chance to see wildlife, Hostetler
said, and may not bring with them a
strong commitment to environmental
issues.
"You have to engage the people
that live in these communities," Mr.
Hostetler said. "It's a combination of
things, of not only education, raising
awareness, but understanding the
barriers that everyday people have,
to make it easier for them to involve
themselves in sustainable type of liv-
ing."
In the studies, Mr .Hostetler and
graduate student Krystal Noiseux
queried new homeowners in two
pairs of Central Florida communities.
Each pair consisted of a green hous-
ing development and a traditional
one of similar size, home value and
location.
The researchers mailed question-
naires to more than 900 households
in' total, of which 340 responded.
The questionnaires were sent in June
2006 and mailed only to residents
who bought their homes in the past
two years.
Residents of both types of commu-
nities were concerned with indoor air
quality, green space and energy effi-
ciency, all of which are usually priori-
ties in green developments.
But residents of both types of
communities had only a moderate-
to low-level commitment to environ-
mental issues, responses showed.
The questionnaire contained a total
of 40 questions about environmental
knowledge, attitudes and behaviors.

"We felt that the South Florita

In 2004, Florida fast-tracked the

to the "pay as you go" approach, tax-

Remember the most



precious gift


All of our lives we have spent put-
ting out fires. These fires were started
by our perfectionism and our procras-
tination. Along with panic of these
fires come the squeals of martyrdom
and yells of dissatisfaction. We have
all done this and it is our family who
have had listen to it.
Why do we torture our family with
hurtful words? I can tell you why! You
are so stressed out and feeling like a
martyr! This has got to stop! I can help
you get rid of the stress, but it us up to
you to curb those angry words. The
first step is to follow our directions
for your routines, getting dressed to
shoes, hair and face.
It is up to you to change your at-
titude toward your family! Once you
change. your martyred outlook to
one of blessing your family and giv-
ing teaching moments, you will see
a change in them. I know that you
don't believe me, but you can only
change yourself. It is by your example
that your family will begin to help
and support your efforts to secure a
peaceful home.
What does your wicked tongue do
to your children, your husband and
most of all you. It doesn't tell them
you love them. It makes them feel less
than; it hurts their self-worth. They
feel that they have no say in things.
It makes your husband feel that he is
married to his mother! 1 don't even
want to go there. They feel like ser-
vants, instead of family members.
Those harsh words are worse than a
whipping. You cut your family out of
the conversational loop. The family
can't even say what is on their mind
because they are afraid of you. Home
life is based on the fear of not making
mother mad. Your family members
hide from you. They become afraid to
tell you when something happens.
After those words have come from
your lips, just how do you feel then?
Do you feel laden with guilt or do you
even realize you are barking -nasty
remarks their way. Oblivious to the
torture you have inflicted upon your
loved ones.
There is absolutely no excuse for
this. I don't want to hear that this is
the only way I can get my family to do
anything. This is the lie that you tell
yourself to not feel guilty. It is time to
forgive yourself and then ask them to
forgive you.
Many times in our lives we are
faced with things that are difficult. As
sidetracked people we allow our per-
fectionism to hurt us and our children.
We just do not know that is what is
causing us to be raving banshees.
Now you have a chance to change
by taking actions. You may not have

known how to change in the past but
you are learning. Take these words
into your heart and forgive yourself.
You know the things you have said.
This can be the beginning.of a new
relationship with your family.
I would like to suggest that you
start writing your feelings down too.
Not just the pain you are feeling but
how you can change. First you have
to forgive yourself. You are just learn-
ing these things; the more you write
the more. you will discover about
yourself. You are not expected to be
perfect. Love yourself enough to take
these words and go forward from
here. This is not the end but the be-
ginning of a new life. After you forgive
yourself and get in touch with your
own feelings; then you can ask for
forgiveness. My heart goes out to you!
My prayers are with you and your
whole family.
You can do this; you found us be-
cause you were looking for a change
in your life. You are willing to make
changes.
Your tongue can criticize or it can
encourage. The choice is all yours. If
you have not changed your attitude,
then how can you expect to see a
change in them. It has to come from
the heart. If not they will see right
through you. They may not even be-
lieve it at first, because you will not
be sounding like the mother that have
been used to all your life. The children
may think the aliens have taken their
real mother away. Prove to them and
their father that you have changed.
Sprinkle your words of love, encour-
agement and teaching, all over your
home. Apologize for your tongue.
Don't play the martyr game anymore.
No one loves a martyr. Not even you!
It time to FLY without the Guilt;
forgive yourself!

Those results are significant, Mr.
Hostetler said, because all homeown-
ers can influence their own environ-
mental impact. Day-to-day choices
such as setting the thermostat, wa-
tering the lawn or choosing plants
for the yard influence a household's
resource consumption. The studies
indicate that residents of green com-
munities don't necessarily conserve
resources better than residents of tra-
ditional developments.
He believes that in any communi-
ty, green or traditional, there's a small
percentage of people who'd go all-
out to live sustainably, and another
group who'd refuse to inconvenience
themselves in the least.
The rest -- perhaps 80 to 90 per-
cent, by his estimate -- are willing to
reduce their resource consumption
but may not understand how. For ex-
ample, using ceiling fans rather than
an air conditioner may save hundreds
of dollars per year, but a homeowner
may not think to do it.
It's hard to say how much the UF
findings can be generalized to other
parts of the country; the studies need
to be replicated elsewhere, Hostetler
said. However, the results do indicate
that developers of green communi-
ties should thoroughly educate home
buyers.
What's certain is that home buy-
ers -- and the general public -- will
be hearing more about green homes
and communities, said Hal Knowles,
a consultant for UF's Program for Re-
source Efficient Communities, part
of the Florida Cooperative Extension
Service.
Green construction became popu-
lar in the United States during the
1990s, following the formation of
the U.S. Green Building Council, a
nonprofit that promotes sustainable
building practices and offers a widely
recognized certification program, Mr.
Knowles said.
Green certification can be an im-
portant marketing tool, said Nancy
Richardson, director of Audubon
international's Audubon Signature
Programs, which certify new devel-
opments.
"A developer is looking for some-
thing that makes them unique ih the
marketplace," Ms. Richardson said.
"There's no doubt that (certification)
does help."
But some environmentalists de-
bate which standards are needed,
Hostetler said.
"There is much discussion about
the bar being set too low in these
certifications and it is sometimes too
easy being green," he said.'


Farmers, ranchers encouraged to participate in census


TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging the state's farmers and ranchers
to watch their mail in early January for
the arrival of the 2007 Census of Agri-
culture form.
"I urge all of Florida's agricultural
producers to participate in the Census
by completing and returning the form,"
Bronson said. "The input received
by the Census helps shape the future
of agriculture for years to come, and
we want to make sure that the voices
of Florida's farmers and ranchers are
heard."
Conducted every five years by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture, the
Census is a complete count of the
nation's farms and ranches and the
people who operate them. The Census
examines land use and ownership, op-
erator characteristics, production prac-
tices, income and expenditures and
other topics. It provides the only source
of uniform, comprehensive agricultural
data for every county in the nation.
"Regardless of how large or small
their operation or what kinds of prod-
ucts they produce, it's important for
Florida farmers and ranchers to com-
plete and return the form," Bronson
said. "By participating in the Census,
they will help themselves and their
communities."


USDA's National Agricultural Statis-
tics Service (NASS) will mail out Cen-
sus forms on December 28, 2007, to
collect data for the 2007 calendar year.
Completed forms are due by Febru-
ary 4, 2008. Producers can return their
forms by mail or fill out the Census on-
line via a secure web site.
"The Census of Agriculture provides
information that benefits agricultural
producers and their communities in
many ways," Bronson said. "For in-
stance, policy-makers factor Census
data into decisions concerning agri-
cultural and rural programs. Commu-
nity planners use Census data to tar-
get needed services to rural residents.
Companies rely on Census data when
determining where to locate their op-
erations. And farmers themselves can
use Census data to help make critical
decisions about their businesses."
For more information about the
2007 Census of Agriculture, contact the
NASS Florida Field Office at (407) 648-
6013 or 1-800-344-6277 or visit www.
agcensus.usda.gov.

What is the Census
of Agriculture?
The Census of Agriculture is a com-
plete count, taken every five years, of
America's farms and ranches and the


people who operate them. It is the
most complete agricultural data re-
source available, providing the only
source of uniform, comprehensive in-
formation for every county in the na-
tion. The Census provides information
on land use and ownership, operator
characteristics, production practices,
income and expenditures, and many
other important topics. The 2007 Cen-
sus of Agriculture is your voice, your
future, your responsibility.
By participating in the 2007 Census,
producers can help show the nation
the value and importance of U.S. agri-
culture. This is an opportunity for every
producer to show how agriculture con-
tributes to America by providing food,
fuel and fiber. Each producer has the
power to influence key decisions that
will shape the direction of American
agriculture for years to come, includ-
ing:
Transportation and marketing lo-
cations;
Farm services;
Production practices and new
technologies; and,
Policy decisions.

The future
By responding to the Census, every
producer can have a positive impact
on the future of their own operation


and their entire community. The Cen-
sus provides valuable information used
for:
Community planning:
Farm succession planning:
Store/company locations:
Availability of operational loans
and other funding:
Location and staffing of USDA ser-
vice centers: and,
Federal budget support for agri-
culture.

Everyone's responsibility
Everyone's response to the Census
makes a difference. To assure we are
providing the best. tools and reports,
we need accurate information from all
farmers and ranchers no matter how
large or small their operations. This
information is used to make a positive
difference in local communities. Ad-
ditionally, responses are required and
protected by law.

What to Do?
Producers should look for the Cen-
sus form in their mailboxes in early
January 2008.
Forms must be mailed back or com-
pleted online by Feb. 4, 2008.
Visit www.agcensus.usda.gov for
more information.


can get together and get projects in
the ground faster," said District Exec-
utive Director Carol Ann Wehle.
Since 2000, Florida has invested
close to $2 billion toward the Com-
prehensive Everglades Restoration
Plan. Just this year, the state expanded
its restoration efforts to the northern
part of the ecosystem and extended a
dedicated trust fund through 2020 to
set aside another $2.3 billion in state
funding toward restoration of the
South Florida ecosystem.
Florida's 2007-08 budget includes
close to $200 million for the resto-
ration and protection of the South
Florida ecosystem, allocating $100
million for Everglades restoration,
$54 million for the restoration of Lake
Okeechobee, as well as $40 million
to protect the health of the Caloosa-
hatchee and St. Lucie estuaries.

BELLE GLADE -- Charity Proj-

American Idol Gives Back re-
Ssponded to a call to help provide
more effective homework assis-
tance in communities with high
poverty rates. CPEF responded by
awarding 180 Boys & Girls Clubs
across the county, including the
local Boys & Girls Club of Glade
View Elementary, with $25,000
grants.
The grant awarded to the
Boys & Girls Club of Glade View
Elementary enabled the Club to
expand on its successful home-
work assistance program, "Pow-
er Hour." Understanding that
so many of our children simply
do not have the access to the
resources that enable them to
complete their homework, Power
Hour helps them learn to work
independently, complete projects
on time, and feel positive about
their accomplishments. Power
Hour not only exposes youth to
homework assistance; it is an
integral part of the after school
program.
Funds from this grant enabled
the Club to purchase laptop
computers and a television, all
of which assist the children with
homework and advance their
technology skills.

Wise men still seek Him even today


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
When Jesus was born in Beth-
lehem there
came to do him
homage wise
men from the '
East. We call '-
this event the
Epiphany, and
traditionally cel-
ebrate it on Jan.
6, the twelfth day
of Christmas. An John
epiphany is a Hicks
moment of sud-
den intuitive understanding, a
flash of insight. Many times it is
associated with an appearance
or manifestation of God. On this
day of Epiphany, we celebrate the
revealing of Jesus as Christ to the
Gentiles (that's us) in the persons
of the Magi.
The wise men spent their
whole lives looking for the sign
of the new born king. When they


had their epiphany, they went on
a journey of great distance, fol-
lowing the sign from God to find
the newborn king and savior.
Finding Christ, they offered gifts
out of their resources in response
to God's gift of love.
Discovering the spirit of God
and the presence of Christ in
our life is rarely experienced as a
blinding light or a burning bush.
Growing our soul and filling our
spirit with the right nutrients and
nourishment often requires an
intentional search. Fortunately
however, we have this promise
in Jeremiah 29:13: "You will seek
me and find me when you seek
me with all your heart."
All of us are familiar with the
game children play called hide
and seek. During a Church Christ-
mas dinner one year at the Clear-
water Church I served, I noticed
that it was getting hard for some of
the children to sit still, so a group
of us went over to the office area
and played hide and seek.


We had a great time, especial-
ly since it was the pastor's office
and they had the pastor playing
with them. Guess who got to be
"it"?
I closed my eyes and began
to count, one thousand one, one
thousand two, one thousand
three -all during this time I could
hear them running all around
giggling and trying to find a spe-
cial place to hide. One thousand
eight, one thousand nine. "What
was I supposed to count to?" The
answer came back, "Ten!"
"One thousand ten, ready or
not,, here I come!" I knew where
one was hiding because he an-
swered me. Before I could open
my eyes, I heard the closet door
slam shut, so I knew where an-
other was hiding. Immediately,
the desk in the front office began
to giggle unlike I had ever heard
that desk giggle before. I went to
look, and what to my wandering
eyes should appear, but two well
used tennis shoes sticking out


from under the desk, and there
were feet attached.
They were thrilled as I walked
directly over to them and played
at chasing them. I soon found
them all. At first, it seemed to me
that they might have found bet-
ter hiding places, but I've realized
something over the years, there is
fun in hiding, but the real fun is in
being found, in being discovered.
The same is true for us in life.
God cares enough about us to of-
fer us the gift of grace and love,
but doesn't force this gift on us.
However, the signs are there for
us to follow. Whether it's the
Bethlehem Star or the sharing
with friends and colleagues, the
Christ child is God's way of stick-
ing His feet from under the desk
of life and proclaiming for all the
world to hear, "Here I am! Come
and find me!"
"You will find me when you
seek me with all your heart", says
God. It is what all wise men and
wise women do these days.

"SECRET TO BETTER HEALTH REVEALED"
The latest research points to some previously overlooked factors
affecting a persons general health. And, it's not what you might
think. This common condition is linked to Diabetes, Heart Attacks
and Heart Disease, Low Birth Weight Babies and Miscarriage, Sinus
and Lung conditions, and Chronic Infections and Inflammation
throughout the body. It is very easily treated, but often goes undi-
agnosed and untreated. Because it is visible in the mouth only,
regular visits dental visits are a good idea. As we all know, these vis-
its are often not frequent enough to catch most preventable con-
ditions. Please make an appointment with your Local Dentist, or
call Glades Dental, Drs. Hausy and Weiland at 863-983-6347 for
more information.


Your life -- a two-way proposition now


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As 2007 winds down and we
crank up 2008 there is something
of which we all need to take
note. Life is a two-way proposi-
tion. It always returns whatever
you give it. And no one ever "gets
away" with anything. Sooner or
later each one receives back that
which he invests in life and living.
Many people like to think in
terms of luck, or chance. Then,
if they fail to find success or hap-
piness, they can always blame
someone else, or conditions, or
circumstances, for their failure.
They contend that the cards of
life are stacked against them, and
they must play the game accord-
ing to the rules and restrictions of
a fickle universe.
This is not true. Your life will


never be anything more, or any-
thing less, than you make it. And
wise is the man who learns to take
hold and shape his experience ac-
cording to a pattern of good.
Take a look at your life. What
do you see? Is there lack, limita-
tion, and error? Or is there in'you
confidence and strength? Life is a
two-way proposition. If you are
not satisfied with the results that
are coming back to you, then it is
time to take a good long look at
what you are contributing.
Do you invest time, effort, and
energy in complaining, feeling
sorry for yourself, and vainly wish-
ing for other people and things to
change? If so, you are giving life
an attitude of dissatisfaction and
grumbling, and you may be sure
that your return will come quickly
in the form of more situations
about which you can complain.


You can always make even un-
happy conditions worse by con-
centrating on the problems.
Or on the other hand, you can
choose to make your life whatever
you want it to be. You can, when
you are willing to render first
that which you want to receive.
Would you be loved? Then be lov-
ing. Would you be healthy? Then
stop concentrating on symptoms
and start breathing deeply, walk-
ing easily, and believing in your
own potential of perfect health
and wholeness. Would you be
prosperous and successful? Then
sow the seeds of prosperity and
success by identifying with these
ideas in mind, cultivating an at-
titude of success and affluence,
and expressing your highest apti-
tudes and abilities. Would you re-
ceive? Then give. Would you live
in peace and harmony with oth-


ers? Then start by living in peace
and harmony with yourself. The
law works through every phase
of your experience, because life is
a two-way proposition. It always
returns to you whatever you give
it.
Perhaps as you look around at
the lives of others, you feel that
their success or prosperity is not
deserved; but checking up on oth-
ers is not your business. The law
takes care of returning to each
one that which he gives to live.
You have a full-time job making
your own investments in life. And
you can be sure that when you do
give to life that which you would
most like to receive, you will al-
ways be bountifully blessed. Life
always returns to you whatever
you give to it. (Read Galatians 6:7-
9 and 2nd Corinthians 9:6-8)

Christmas, miracle of miracles, gift of gifts


Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
"0 Holy Child of Bethlehem,
descend on us we pray, cast out
our sin and enter
in, be born in us ', ,
today...." Howv
many times we
have sung these (..-,. .
words at Christ-
mas. Avery spe -
cial story and
prayer; that God
would some-
how come and Samuel S.
make the world Thomas
a better place by His. presence
among us.
The thought of God coming
here in person is something be-
yond understanding, a real act of
faith. Yet it is a true story, a story
that has been witnessed and told
for countless generations. The
story that the Lord walked on
this earth, shared with his crea-
tures and creation, loved what he
saw and finally gave his life for it.
I have heard the story of the birth
of Jesus of Nazareth many times
and each time I think of the mir-


acle of this humble beginning.
While surrounded with all sorts
of obstacles and dangers; on the
fringes of the society of the day,
with persecution and only make-
shift accommodations, and in a
difficult time of year under condi-
tions that were certainly primitive
by our standards today, in spite
of it all, there is that personifica-
tion of love, a child is born. As
our children come into the world
bearing two -family traditions;
the Lord came bringing Heaven
and Earth together; begotten
and born among us. We always
celebrate the birthdays of great
people and this was the birthday
of all birthdays. The Holy Child
descended and cast away our
imperfections, entering into this
life in its fullest and then giving
Himself that we may be with
Him forever in the life to come.
To celebrate this birth, all parts
of creation were there: wise men
and ordinary shepherds, foreign-
ers and local people, animals and
angels from another realm and all
illuminated by a star from the far
corners of the universe to shine
over one special place. Recently


I have encountered persons who
have been weighed down by all
that goes with our celebrations
of "Christmas;" finding the right
ift, preparing for extra events,
obligations to family, organiza-
tions with their annual affairs
and visits to see others. In the
midst of it all, some lose sight of
what it is all about. It is about the
Lord coming into the world and
all that he did by his presence, by
his acts of love, by his offering of
himself, by this special proof of
loving us in spite of all that seems
to go wrong; and by Jesus doing
it as personally as possible in a
way that human beings might
understand.
I remember hearing about
parents trying to explain what
Christmas was about to their
young daughter and hoping she
would understand, telling her it
was about Jesus' birthday. Then
came all of the shopping, visits
to "Santa" and putting up the
tree. When Christmas morning
arrived, the parents heard a little
voice singing "Happy birthday to
you, happy birthday to you." and
thought they didn't really explain


after all. Their disappointment
was turned to joy when they
heard "Happy birthday dear Je-
sus, happy birthday to you." She
understood after all, in spite of all
of the "glitz" and distraction. In
the midst of all of our "busyness"
it is easy to forget what it is all
about. Our prayers this season
are prayers. not to be forgotten.
"O Holy Child of Bethlehem, de-
scend on us we pray..." descend
on us once more that this may be
a moment of reverence for the
greatest of miracles and greatest
gift of gifts ever to be received.
May the Lord truly enter in
once more, be born again in our
hearts and homes this season.
May all of the special memories
of Christmas, from the first one
so long ago, and throughout all
of the ages, shine in our hearts'
that the gift may be proclaimed.
Let "Peace on Earth, good will
toward men," shine forth in each
of us as we contemplate it. Mer-
ry Christmas, may God's richest
blessings be with you at this sea-
son and always.

open house earlier this month,
with approximately 300 people
in attendance.
James Lee, a We Help CDC
representative, took prospective
buyers on a tour of the newly
built homes. To him, the open
house was a success and a step
in the right direction.
"It makes me feel good that,
being born and raised in the
Glades, we could see a develop-
ment that we're proud of," Mr.
Lee said.
While taking the potential
on the tour, he showed them
two types of housing units a

Palm Beach Lakes to a berth in
the Class 4A state finals. Coach
James graduated from Palm
Beach Lakes High. School and
played college basketball at Ball
Sate University in Indiana.
While at Ball State -- Coach
James was a four-year guard
there from -- he got to taste what
it's like to be part of March Mad-
ness, considered by many the
ultimate championship tourna-
ment.
"Every kid who plays basket-
ball wants to have the experience
in playing at a big tournament,"
Coach James said. "It was fun to
get to play in the NCAA tourna-
ment when I was at Ball State."
Though the coach's team
lost in the first round of the 1992
NCAA tournament, the school's
only appearance when he was
there, Coach James said he ap-
preciated the opportunity.
After college basketball,
Coach James played profession-
ally overseas for a few years, he
had the chance to travel to may
places around the world, with
France being his favorite place.
"It was different with people
speaking different languages but
as I got used to the different cul-
ture overseas, it turned out to be
a fun experience," Coach James
said.
Ultimately, as his players navi-
Sgate through this season, Coach
James would like for them to get
a chance to taste the success he
had while in high school.
"My goal is to put the players
in a position to attend college
and leave the area to experience
different things," Coach James
said.
With the boys basketball en-
joying a 3-1 record pribr to the
Dec. 21 home game against the
Clewiston Tigers -- a very good
area team -- here are some play-
ers that are worthy to watch for:
Sandy Kendall, a senior guard
who is listed at 5'10", is expected
to become one of the better play-
ers who will be one of the team's
leaders throughout the season.
Clive Wolford, a sophomore
center listed at 6'5", is expected
to carry the team through the
first leg of the season. According
to Coach James, he will give the
Raiders a presence bn the low-
post from his scoring, rebound-
ing and blocking abilities.
Nathaniel Perdue, a senior
forward who is listed at 6'4", is
expected to become a defensive
stopper. Coach James said he will
likely be guarding against the op-
posing team's best player every
game. Nathaniel is described as a
hard worker who is dedicated to'
getting better everyday.
"Even though this is my first
year, I've always been a winner
when I played basketball," Coach


bedrooms, two bathrooms and a
two-car garage.
The homes will start at
$195,000 for three-bedroom
homes and $210,000 for four-
bedroom units.
Homeowner benefits, accord-
ing to Dr. Walker, include down
payment assistance, depending
on a family's household size and
income.
"We want Abidjan Estates to
be a new development in the
Glades," Dr. Walker said. "We
want businesses to come to our
community and create year-
round jobs so their employees
will have somewhere safe, af-
fordable and decent to live in."

James said.
With a district that includes
Forest Hill, Suncoast, Lincoln
Park, Fort Pierce, Westwood, Jen-
sen Beach and Okeechobee the
teams are classified in District 13-
4A the Raiders hope to at least
make a run in the state playoffs
this season.
With the players' knowledge
of the game, fundamentals,
work ethic and dedication intact.
many of the players participat-
ed in some grueling off-season
workouts with Coach James it's
no surprise the Raiders are off to
a fast start.
"It's actually been fun with
me being welcomed by every-
one, trying to get the basketball
program back on its feet," Coach
James said.
Girls team in rebuild
mode
Yolanda Rhodes, the 10th year
Raiders basketball coach, over-
sees a young team made up of
mostly freshmen and sopho-
mores.
The Lady Raiders, who fin-
ished 7-12 last season, have one
major goal in mind.
That objective is- to rebuild
the team, according to Coach
Rhodes.
There are 11 girls on the team,
with only two seniors available
for competition this season. Vet-
eran leadership is obviously a
major concern for this squad.
Expectations for the Lady
Raiders include working on their
basic basketball skills shooting,
dribbling and retoiundlinr, im-
proving their fundamentals and
coming together as a team.
A major area of concerning
Coach Rhodes is that there has
never been a girls AAU travel
team in the Glades area. This
could be a key component as to
why the Lady Raiders currently.
have a losing record.
"We need to establish a girls'
travel team or some type of team'
where they could gain year-round
exposure," Coach Rhodes said.
Another concern that alarms
Coach Rhodes is that the play-
ers haven't really been able to
grasp the concept of the game of
basketball until they reach high
school.
The problem is, according to
Coach Rhodes, is that there is not
enough desire from the girls to
play sports before high school.
"The girls need to start work-
ing on their basketball skills all
the way back to elementary
school," Coach Rhodes said. "If
you start having a desire to play
at a young age, you will be a very
good athlete once you reach high
school."
As the season rolls on, it may
be possible that there could be
some shining stars on the rise.

Make a list and check it twice


The other day on our radio
show, we had a call from a
woman who wanted to make
some changes in her life with
regard to the food they were
eating. She said she knew it
was out of control and things
had to change. She felt bad,
she had no energy and she
wanted a better way.
Does that describe you?
You know things aren't right
in your pantry-you know you.
could do better in your fridge,
too. Dinner is a wait-and-see
proposition; sometimes you
have time to make it, but most,
times you drive thru or order
pizza. There is no semblance
of order to the food in your life
and the concern for nutrition is
secondary and only comes in
pangs of guilt, not from plan-
ning.
It doesn't have to be like
this. Taking care of the food in
your family's life doesn't have
to be hard, massively time
consuming or brain numbing.
You just have to spend a small
amount of time on it and it will
pay you back in dividends-I


Computers
Continued From Page 1
"Before this technology
class, we didn't know anything
about computers and the five
program installations," Dike-
nya said. "Now, it's been about
five months in the class and
we know everything about the
motherboard and the rest of the
computer parts. I know how to
take a computer apart and put
it back together."
Thernisha Jones, another
said, said that within the last
week, the class focused on pol-
ishing the refurbished comput-
ers for distribution to the needy
families in the Glades area.
As of the winter break,
which the area is currently en-
joying, there have been about
100 computers ready for distri-
bution.
"I am going to be happy
when the families in our area
get the Dell computers that
actually will work," Thernisha
said. "They will get better.re-
search options that they prob-
ably won't get somewhere else.
I'm ecstatic to be part of the
project."
Mr. Yochum said that the
Digital Divide class is the only
supplier of refurbished com-
puters to the residents of the
Glades area. He added that
families will be distributed the
refurbished computers in nine-
week increments.,
"I feel very positive about the
work we're doing," Mr. Yochum
said. "The students are getting
real-world experience here and'
they all agree."

S Diva,

promise!
Here are 5 simple rules of
thumb to keep in mind next
time you're in the grocery
store. This will help you get the
food that will make you feel
good, not guilty:
1) Buy stuff that is grown in
the ground and easily recogniz-
able. Also known as fruit and
vegetables, most of these items
won't come in boxes with col-
orful labels.
2) With few exceptions,
most food purchased with a
coupon is really pseudo-food
that you're not going to want
to put in your body. Even if
you can double a coupon and
buy Hot Pockets, Bagel Bites or
something else equally unwor-


thy for less than a dollar, do you
still REALLY think this is such a
good deal when you consider
the negative nutrition you're
really going to consume?
3) Read what's in the food
you are considering purchas-
ing. If you can't pronounce
it, don't buy it. Further, if you
don't know what some of the
ingredients are on the list,
don't buy it either.
4) Make sure you are buy-
ing food without dyes. Did
you know that the pink color-
ing of Good and Plenty candy
comes from cochineal beetles
and their eggs? Pink yogurts
also have this coloring and yes,
it also comes from dead bugs
and their offspring. Sounds
yummy, doesn't it?
5) Use a'list!! For goodness
sake, you can't make magical
menus appear off the top of
your head, shopping in the gro-
cery store without a list. It takes
planning, a menu, a little cre-
ativity and yes, a grocery list! I
have a bunch of sample menus
(with the grocery list) for you
to use if you want to give them


a try-you know where the
Dinner Diva lives. ;-)
We have enough on our
plates (bad pun, sorry) with-
out having the food in our
house be an issue. Don't you
agree? Then hop on the band
wagon and let's get the food in
our households under control
so that it is helping us to be
the best we can be, not weigh-
ing us down, making us feel
guilty.
Life is too short for crummy
nutrition. Do like Santa-make
a list and check it twice. You
really do need to know what
foods are naughty and which
ones are nice. J
