Whitaker sworn in as new mayor


Concerns whether
special meeting was
called legally

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Relating to mu-
nicipal government, timing is
very important.
At a special meeting on March
17, Wayne Whitaker, the new
mayor, and Diane Walker, the
newly-elected commissioner,
were sworn into office.


- Approved by a 3-to-0 vote,
the resolution was motioned by
Henry Crawford, the vice-mayor
and seconded by Commissioner
Walker.
SCommissioner Keith Babb,
via telephone, was also in favor
of the action, while Commis-
sioner Allie Biggs was not pres-
ent.
The swearing-in session was
not without its conflicts, howev-
er, as a host of residents voiced
their concerns.
One of them, Regina Bohlen,
claimed in the special meeting


that the city charter's rules had
been overlooked in order to
make the swearing in of Mayor
Whitaker and Commissioner
Walker possible.
And the former mayor
claimed that the meeting was il-
legally called.
"No one at city hall asked
me whether I resigned or not
and nobody informed me of the
special meeting that took place,"
Mr. Sasser said. "I'm only a cell
phone call away."
According to Susan Feltner,
the deputy city clerk, Mr. Sasser

Clarence Anthony steps down


Anthony: 'It's been
a great ride.'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY "This is a night
I never visualized coming,"
Clarence Anthony, the outgoing
mayor said during the March 18
commission meeting.
Neither did many local resi-
dents, who will now be with-
out its longtime mayor after 24
years at the helm.
It was a very emotional mo-
ment for Mr. Anthony and the
entire city, as he reminisced
about his time as the city's
mayor.


At just 23 years old in 1984,
Mr. Anthony was elected South
Bay's mayor with the dream of
having a stationary library in
his home city.
A Florida Atlantic University
graduate, Mr. Anthony said in
his final South Bay commission
meeting that the Glades area
called him back to make a dif-
ference in the community.
"I felt that growing up in
Okeechobee Center and in
South Bay, there was never a
stationary library," Mr. Anthony
said. "We only had a mobile
library to go to and I felt the
citizens deserved a station-
ary library in the community.
Therefore, I worked untiringly


to make sure.our kids had the
same facilities as everyone else
in Palm Beach County."
It may have been Mr. An-
thony's crowning moment as
South Bay's mayor in the early
stages of his 24-year tenure,
which ended on March 18.
With the quest for a stationary
library on his sights, Mr. Antho-
ny developed key contacts with
all levels of legislative govern-
ment in making sure that his
dream would be realized.
It took about eight years into
Mr. Anthony's term for his goal
to come to fruition, but in 1992,
the South Bay library, erected
adjacent to city hall, finally

had turned in his city key and
submitted a letter of resignation
on the morning of March 12 --
the day after he learned of his
fate as the city's mayor.
"If Sasser was going to re-
main in his seat, he wouldn't
have turned in his keys," Ms. Felt-
ner said not long after the special
meeting.
Mr. Sasser confirmed the ac-
tions, adding that he sent his let-
ter of resignation in a sealed en-
velope to Mimi McAndrews, the
acting city manager.
"The letter was between my-


self and Mimi and the sealed en-
velope had her name on it," Mr.
Sasser said.
According to Mr. Sasser, the
acting city manager found the
sealed envelope opened prior to
ier receiving it last week.
"It looks like someone
opened the letter illegally," Mr.
Sasser claimed.
Ms. McAndrews could not be
reached for comment.
During the special meeting,
it was discussed that all of the

PAHOKEE For the second
consecutive year, Relay For Life
will be held in this close-knit
city.
The eighth annual event,
which will take place on March
28 and 29, is scheduled to be

According to Maureen
Gross, the relay was originally
scheduled to be held at Glades

with having the overnight event

BELLE GLADE Near the
conclusion of the March 17
commission meeting, the ma-
jority of the commissioners ap-
proved a settlement of Vincent
Finizio's ongoing lawsuit, in the
amount of $110,000.
By a 4-to-1 vote, the decision
was motioned by Commission-
er Gwendolyn Asia-Holley and
seconded by then-Commis-
sioner Sanchez. The action was
opposed by Vice-Mayor Mary


Kendall.
The decision was significant
because, for one thing, it drew
a conclusion to the legal battle
the city had been in since it
fired Mr. Finizio as its city man-
ager on March 19, 2007.
"Mr.,Finizio gave a release to
the city which confirmed that
he'll no longer sue them in his
lawsuit," said Glen J.'Torcivia,
the city attorney.' "So now, his
case is dismissed."

mer Vice-Mayor Garrett mo-

Easter; Always to be recalled and celebrated:


By Rev Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
With Easter behind us, it's all to
tempting to put it out of mind. Yet
the Easter story is an ever-present
story. It gives hope to all who hear
it; about rising beyond this life,
about new lifer about fulfillment
of dreams and hopes. It is an af-
firmation of the hope of humanity
since time immemorial, almost
beyond belief and yet true. There
can be nothing greater when we
think about all that Easter means.
SLike any good thing, there are
always those who like to detract
from the joy and happiness of
great events and people. Someone
told about the mother whose son
came home and told the family he
had won a new car. She replied
"The taxes alone will drive us to


the poor house." Sometimes,
those who detract have a vested
interest in keeping good news
from being true or believed.
I've heard many interpreta-
tions of scriptures or history;
with proponents of viewpoints
saying that they're not "interpret-
ing" but "clarifying" or some such
other defense. I wonder about the
vested interests of such claimants
who expound what they believe
to be the "real truth." The Exodus
story is a large part of Old Testa-
ment history; it is-a footnote in
Egyptian historical annals. Others
will share their theories on "who
really won the war," or "what re-
ally happened at Pearl Harbor,"
or some such other claims. The
Easter story, unfortunately, is no
different.
Following the Easter story with
all of its' beautiful and wonderful
meanings, there came a group of


religious leaders of their day who
wanted to quash it. Some of the
guards who were assigned to
watch the tomb where Jesus was
buried and see that the body was
not stolen went "and told the chief
priests all that had taken place
(Matthew 28:1 1ff)."
This could not be! "And when
they had assembled with the el-
ders and had taken counsel, they
gave a sum of money to the sol-
diers and said,'Tell people, His
disciples came by night and stole
Him away while we were asleep'
(vss 12-13)." And to further give
credence to their deceit, they
promise "And if this comes to the
governor's ears, we will satisfy
him and keep you out of trouble
(v. 14)."
The story was spread as the el-
ders wanted it; it exists to this day
among those who do not want
tobelieve or have a vested interest


in some other interpretation. Cov-
er-up tactics are not new! When I
encounter such stories and such
"interpretations" I always look at
who has what interest at heart in
their version of the "truth."
For the early Christians, there
was no interest other than to share
the truth, they were poor and dis-
organized but the power of the
message led to it's proclamation.
For others, this was not the case;
their interests were from keeping
others from even considering the
message of the disciples of Jesus'
followers. They were even willing
to pay to have others lie about
what they had .seen. They will
lie themselves to the governor if
need be; to keep him from explor-
ing what really was true about this
special and wonderful story. They
can take advantage of their posi-
tion, their political power, their
prestige to further their cause.


Eventually the truth will come to
the light of day, as it has for two
thousand years now.
The life of Paul the Apostle is
a great example of someone who
had a vested interest in his viewp-
point, but another interpretation
came to him as he went about
persecuting the faithful Christians
of his day.
The Easter story has lived be-
cause it has come to the light of
day in spite of all who would sup-
press it and say otherwise. In spite
of efforts to detract from it, to see
that it is denied, it shines through
to all of God's creatures. I believe
this is how the Lord wants it and
what is intended. Easter 2008
has now passed in one sense;
yet we celebrate it each Sunday
(Every Sunday in reality is a "little
Easter"-a day of celebrating when
the Lord rose from the grave), and
the truth and power of the story is


recalled once more.
We have a choice, I suppose, to
listen to those who distract from
the joy and beauty of the story, of
the personal meaning for each of:
us, for this sign of great love from.
God; or to see it as the faithful:
and the Lord Himself revealed it
to us. Paul was later to write "And,
if Christ has not been raised, our
preaching is useless and so is your-
faith...But Christ has indeed been
raised from the dead, the firstfruits
of those who have fallen asleep (1 ,
Corinthians 15:12...20)."
My lot is cast with those who'
interpret the story with beauty,,
love, faith, hope, charity, good-'
ness. That is what Easter is about.
It's truth deserves to be remem-
bered more than once a year,
or even once a week, it is for us
always..


Finding gold in dumpster diving Re"gin News
1 First Christian to host


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I have a confession to make.
I've been known to "dumpster
dive". I'm a firm believer in "one
person's trash is another's trea-
sure". Truth be known, I have
mellowed out over the years, but
recently God led me to go once
more into a garbage bin.
It began months ago with God
getting into my face to take bet-
ter care of His temple called my
body. God got my attention, and
through lifestyle change and exer-
cise, I have managed to drop over
125 pounds.
' Life has taught me that there
are consequences with every deci-
sion and action, and such was the
case with my weight loss. I found
that my pants weren't the only
thing falling off. My ring finger is
thinner and my wedding ring was
loose. One night at bedtime, I
realized that my ring was not on


my finger. I had been all over the
church that day and at the fellow-
ship dinner that night the ring
could be anywhere.
I arose early the next morning
and searched the grass and asphalt
areas where I had traversed the
day before. I even went through
the garbage. No luck. I had re-
signed myself that it was gone and
to convince myself that it was only
a piece of metal.
Two nights later, God gave me
a vision in a dream. (Yes, God still
works that way!) In the dream, I
saw my ring in a pan of meat trim-
mings from the Wednesday night
dinner. The next morning was a
work day at the church, and I went
directly to the dumpster. I located
the bag in my dream, and just for
good measure, pulled out all of
the other garbage bags from the
dinner. A friend helped by dump-
ing the bag from my dreams onto
the parking lot, and I directed him
to the pan of trimmings. The ring
was right where I had seen it in my


dream!
God still answers prayers-great
and small-and miracles still hap-
pen! In reflection of this miracle
in my life, I have realized that life
is full of lost treasures in the gar-
bage we experience daily. Each of
us has strengths. Each of us has
places God can use us most effec-
tively. Each of us, by connecting
with God can find gold even in the
midst of life's dumpsters.
Some years ago a radio station
invited people to call in and tell
them the first thing they had said
that morning when they awoke.
It was funny. One guy said, "Do
I smell coffee burning?" Another
one said, "Oh no, I'm late for
work." A woman confessed that
her first words were, "Honey, did
I remember to put the dog out last
night?" and you could hear a muf-
fled curse in the background and a
man growling, "No, you didn't."
One morning, the station phone
rang and the perky DJ said, "Good
morning, you're on the air. What


was the first thing you said when
you rolled out of bed this morn-
ing?" A voice with a Bronx accent
replied, "Hear O Israel, the Lord
our God is one; you shall love the
Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your
mind, and with all your strength."
The caller was reciting the Shema
(Deuteronomy 6:4), so prized by
our Jewish friends. The radio host
did not know how to handle it. He
was looking for junk and instead
encountered gold. There was a
moment of embarrassed silence,
then the announcer cut to a com-
mercial.
How do you start, your day?
With a moan about how difficult
your life is or with a prayer turning
to God? The garbage we face or
the treasures we have lost do not
have to determine our happiness
or our success. What we need is to
orient our lives in alignment with
God and let Him direct us in the
path we need to follow. Do this,
and we will find our gold.


Call on Him when you're 'out of order!'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
SWhen your material posses-
.-,ior- fa.ll to function properly (the
"- electnc range won't heat, the air-
conditioner won't cool, and so
on) you speak of them as "our of
order," and you call the proper ser-
vice man to have them repaired.
SSometimes a life will be "out
of order" Here, too, it is necessary
to get repairs from a Master Work-
man who can straighten out the
difficulty, no matter how large or
complicated.
Even is your life is just a little
bit out of adjustment, you will find
that this One can help you make
the minor changes necessary for
the more orderly functioning of
your affairs.
Sometimes a slight adjust-


ment in your thinking about other
people will help achieve a better
balance in your relationships. Re-
member that the Master Work-
man made everyone in His image
and likeness. Look for the good,
and you will find it easy to adjust
your thinking to a higher vision of
another. Then watch his attitude
toward you change, too.
Maybe your needed adjust-
ment is in the realm of finances.
Here is one way to establish or-
der in your thinking about mate-
rial resources: enlarge your vision
to know that when God created
the universe, He made plenty of
everything! Look around you.
See the unlimited supply of little
things. Think of the leaves of the
trees, each one different. Think
of the birds, each one clothed in
feathers of different hues. Think of
the grass and grains of sand. Try


to count the stars!
"If God so clothes the grass of
the field, which today is alive and
tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
will he not much more clothe you,
O men of little faith?"
Adjust your thinking to abun-
dance, and you will always have
plenty to meet every need. Per-
haps you will bring a disease or
some physical difficulty to the
Master Workman for needed at-
tention. The Intelligence that
made your body has all the kno-
whow necessary to repair it. Ad-
just your thinking to God's perfect
ideas of health, harmony, and
wholeness, and you will find that
a real change will begin to mani-
fest in your body.
In many cases, all that is
needed to repair a life that is "out
of order" is a little application of
the oil of love. Love has a way


of lubricating relationships with
other persons, so that they oper-
ate smoothly, without friction. It
also prepares the way for greater
prosperity to come into one's life.
The person who loves and is open
to all the good of God will always
have plenty. More than one physi-
-cal difficulty has been literally dis-
solved by the oil of love. Friction
in the body also succumbs to the
lubrication of God's love.
Nothing is hopeless. No case
is beyond the help of the Master
Workman. The manufacturer of
any product understands the prin-
ciple of its operation and knows
how to repair it. Take those things
in your life that are "out of order"
to the Creator, the One who made
you, and you will be well on the
way to the orderly adjustment of
your mind, your body, and your
affairs.

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computer for long periods of time often encounter a variety
of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are com-
mon, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain,
blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the
most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE VISION AT THE COMPUTER
While decreasingtime spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to max-
imize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy and'
that you have the correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription (if necessary).
Be certain to tell your optometrist about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the com-
puter. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for
working at the computer.
Rest the eyes
Blink forcefully
SUse a humidifier
Instill artificial tears
After you have had a comprehensive eye examination, there are a number of things that
you can do to arrange and use the elements of your workstation to eliminate or minimize
discomfort.
WORKSTATION SETUP FOR COMFORTABLE COMPUTER USE
Feet should be flat on the floor (or on a slightly angled foot rest) with knees
bent close to or greater than 90 degrees.
Chair seat should support the legs without excessive pressure on the badk of
the things.
The back should be snug against the seat to fit your spinal.contour. Thigh-to..
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home
row of the keyboard.
A commonly preferred work surface height for keyboard use is about 26" as
opposed to the conventional 29" of most tables or desks.
*Place the monitor 20" 26" from your eyes, depending on the size of the mon-
itor and individual vision conditions.
The monitor and keyboard should be straight ahead.
Keep the monitor free of fingerprints and dust. Both can reduce clarity.
Place document holders close to the screen within the same viewing dis-
tance.. Keep the keyboard and monitor in line.
Adjust the keyboard tilt angle so that wrists are straight.

HEALTHY COMPUTER USE
Although the visual system faces considerable challenges when using a computer, most
issues can be solved. Remember that problems with the use of the computer cause need-
less discomfort and may rob productivity. Heeding the suggestions made here along with
those made by you r doctor of optometry, will enable you to use your computer comfort-
ably and productively

cently released a report titled.
"Hispanics and the 2008 Election:
A Swing Vote?" The report's chief
point is that Latinos had been
loosening their historic ties to the
Democratic Party and gravitating
toward the Republican Party but
that trend reversed course in the
past year. Citing a nationwide sur-
vey of Latinos it found that "some
57% of Hispanic registered voters
now call themselves Democrats
or say they lean to the Democrat-
ic Party, while just 23% align with
the Republican Party meaning
there is now a 34 percentage
point gap in partisan affiliation
among Latinos. In July 2006, the
same gap was just 21 percentage
points whereas back in 1999, it
had been 33 percentage points."
Strong rhetoric and obfusca-
tion will not ease this critical is-
sue. We cannot continue to cloak
our language in political slogans
and political rallying cries. We
must remove the vestiges of par-
tisanship and "us versus them" if
we are to bring about meaningful
change to old problems such as
illegal immigration. True leader-
ship' on. immigration has been
sacrificed in the interest of politi-
cal aggrandizement on behalf of
many in the Democratic and Re-
publican parties. The road map
to solutions must include a seat
at the table for all proponents of
each side.
We cannot airbrush the is-
sue of immigration. Some on the
fringes of the debate have sug-
gested that government round
up and remove all illegals in the
nation. This is simply not a practi-
cal or humane way to deal with
the subject. The debate has been
framed in such that one side
characterizes the other side "xe-
nophobia" and "Latinophobes"
while the other side is grouped as
wanting "amnesty". Reform has
long been tardy on the national
scene.
In April and May 2006 we saw
Hispanic-Latinos and support-
ers of comprehensive immigra-
tion reform march and rally. I
welcomed the engagement of
those who participated. For far
too long, the Mexican-American
and Latino community in gen-
eral have been under recognized.
We should encourage, applaud,
and welcome any community's
engagement in the political and
civic process. In the words of Ja-


net Murguia, National Council of
la Raza President and CEO, "the
marches showed that the Latino
community is ready to act, partici-
pate, and vote."
Hispanics are the nation's
largest minority group, number-
ing roughly 47 million (which is
about 15.5% of the total U.S. pop-
ulation). It is estimated that there
are 11-12 million undocumented
Latinos in the U.S. I supported
President George W Bush's com-
prehensive, earned legalization
proposal. The Congressional His-
panic Caucus welcomed the Pres-
ident's plan as well. The prereq-
uisites to permanent citizenship
must include learning English,
paying fees, keeping clean crimi-
nal record, becoming engaged in
civic and government life, etc.
One of the aspects of the de-
bate that I had a problem with
were those that felt the marchers
and ralliers in the spring of 2006
were wrong for waving Mexican
flags. Those on the opposing side
of comprehensive immigration re-
form saw this action as disloyalty
to America. I submit that this was
taken out 'of context. Mexicans
and Latinos are strongly connect-
ed to their roots and home coun-
tries and this was simply a sign of
pride. I do agree that just as many
American flags should have been
waved. I submit that individuals
who recognize or affiliate with
more than one country are truly
more appreciative of said nations
because they comprehend the
.promise and privileges of each.
Another facet of the debate that
conjures up great frustration for
me is the people who think that il-
legal migration to the U.S. can be
solved with wall and fence barri-
ers. People can simply go around
these structures. If an individual
feels desperate enough, they will
seek to enter America through
just about any means.
A December 2007 nationwide
survey of Latinos by the Pew His-
panic Center found that nearly
two-thirds say the failure of Con-
gress to enact an immigration re-
form bill has made life more dif-
ficult for all Latinos. In an effort to
demonstrate the varying views of
the Hispanic community regard-
ing immigration policy; the sur-
vey noted that when questioned
on enforcement policies, "native-
born Hispanics take positions
that are closer to those of the


rest of-the U.S. population than
do foreign-born Hispanics." The
study concluded that non-citizens'
account for 44% of the total adult
Hispanic population. Of these-
non-citizen Latino adults, an es-
timated 55% are undocumented
immigrants and the other 45% are
legal aliens.
We must come to understand
that the Latino community is not'
the monolithic group it is por-:
trayed to be. There are Hispanics
on all sides of the great immigra-'
tion debate. As Harry Pach6n',
president of the ThomAs Rivera'
Policy Institute stated "thete is
a political pluralism in the comr
munity." The fact is that Latinos
feel pulled between two identities
when it comes to matters such as
immigration and the like. As Pablo
Alvarado, who was named one of
the 25 most influential Hispanics
in the Unites States by Time, as
well as "the New Cesar Chavez".
told Hispanic magazine in Octo-
ber 2005, "Immigrants should not,
be demonized because that fo-
ments hatred and racism. Instead
the problem should be viewed as
one of supply and demand in the
labor market." I
In 2008, Latinos will make up,
roughly 9% of the eligible elec-
torate nationally. If past turnout:
trends continue, Hispanics will,
make up approximately 6.5% of'
those who actually turn out to,
vote in November. Notwithstand-
ing that small number, Latinos are
always a potential "swing vote" in,
the presidential elections because'
we are strategically positioned on
the Electoral College map. Hispan-i
ics make up a sizeable portion of
the electorate in 4 of the 6 states
that President Bush carried by:
margins of five percentage points
or fewer in 2004 New Mexico'
(where Hispanics comprise 37%
of state's eligible voters); Florida
(14%); Nevada (12%); and Colo-
rado (12%). (Figures by Pew His-
panic Center) These states will
be among those expected to be
closely contested again this elec-
tion season. In the final analysis,
let us find both the political will
and appetite for compromise that
is all but necessary to finally put
forth sustainable solutions to the
illegal immigration question.
Sincerely,
David J. Ruiz

$17 million 'Tobacco Free Florida' campaign ignites statewide


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) has
launched a $17 million statewide
social marketing and public rela-
tions anti-tobacco campaign the
largest in a decade. The multi-fac-
eted Tobacco Free Florida cam-
paign showcases print, television,
radio and online advertising; and
features cutting edge interactive
platforms, community events,
educational outreach and brand-
ed programs. Partnerships with
renowned brands are expanding
the vast reach and impact of this
vital campaign to combat the per-
vasive problem of tobacco use in
the Sunshine State where each
year, more than 28,000 Floridians
die from smoking. 1
STargeting the Florida market.
with particular emphasis on the
11-17 age group, adults 18-24,
small businesses, chronic disease
sufferers, pregnant women, low-
income households and parents,
the campaign will touch millions
statewide. "Tobacco Free Florida
promotes healthy habits among
Florida's youth, emphasizes that
smoking cessation is the single
most important step that smokers
can take to enhance the length
and quality of their lives, and edu-
cates the entire population about
the dangers of cigarettes, smoke-
less tobacco and secondhand
smoke," states Florida Surgeon
General Ana M. Viamonte Ros,
M.D., M.P.H.
The comprehensive media
campaign features compelling
print, billboard, broadcast and
online advertising. The initial se-
ries of ads educates consumers
on tobacco cessation, the dan-
gers of smokeless tobacco and
smoking during pregnancy, and
encourages businesses to comply
with the Florida Clean Indoor Air
Act. More than 200,000 television
and radio spots will air in every
major market in Florida, and on-
line geo-targeted impressions will
exceed 400 million.
The first campaign ad, target-
ing adult smokers, depicts a child
playing catch by himself as a cau-
tionary voiceover warns of smok-
ing's annual death toll 31,000
children are left fatherless.2
Launched during Super Bowl
XLII, the highest rated champion-
ship game in a decade, the com-
mercial surpassed all expecta-
tions with more than 10 million
viewers statewide. The commer-
cial was also featured on YouTube
and amassed more than 270,000
views online. Print and television
coverage of the commercial's
launch extended into nine major
markets Miami, Jacksonville,
Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg,
Tallahassee, Fort Myers/Naples,
Gainesville, West Palm'Beach and
Panama City. The commercial

continues to receive significant
airtime, running during prime-
time shows such as "American
Idol."
The Tobacco Free Florida web-
site,www.tobaccofreeflorida.com
is a comprehensive resource for
both smokers and non-smokers
including cessation tools, tobacco
statistics and a calendar of state-
wide events that campaign teams
will visit. In addition, the site fea-
tures all the interactive compo-
nents of the campaign, free music
downloads from Florida bands
and broadcast commercials.
Given that 90 percent of smok-
ers begin before the age of 18,
and 87 percent of teenagers are
online, the campaign reaches
this key demographic by using


non-traditional marketing meth-
ods and taking advantage of the
tremendous popularity of on-
line interactive technologies like
YouTube.3,4 The campaign has
partnered with YouTube to spon-
sor the YouCare video contest
where entrants share why they
don't smoke. The contest allows
users to vote for their favorite
submission and the top 50 videos
will be shown on the first ever
statewide On-Demand channel
devoted exclusively to the cam-
paign, reaching more than 2 mil-
lion subscribers to Comcast and
Bright House Networks Digital
Cable. A panel of judges will pick
the grand prize winner who will
receive an Apple iMac comput-
er and an iPod touch.

Florida included




in med lab suit


TALLAHASSEE-Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum announced
that Florida and 18 states have
filed an antitrust lawsuit against
Abbott Laboratories and French
drug company Fournier Industrie
et Sante and Laboratories Fourni-
er, S.A,, charging the companies
with blocking a cheaper, generic
version of prescription drug Tri-
Cor. The drug, which is used to
reduce high levels of triglycerides
and cholesterol, accounted for
more than $1 billion of Abbott's
sales last year. The complaint was
filed in federal court in Delaware
seeks triple the amount of dam-
ages incurred by the state's pub-
lic health agencies and individual
consumers.
As Florida and our senior pop-
ulation face ever increasing costs
of prescription drugs, we cannot
-permit drug companies to edge
out competition and potentially
less expensive generic alterna-
tives," said Attorney General Bill
McCollum.
An investigation conducted by
the Attorney General's Antitrust
Division and other states revealed
allegations that the two drug com-
panies allegedly blocked competi-
tion from less expensive generics
by continuously making minor
changes in the formulations of
TriCor to prevent therapeutically
equivalent generic substitutions.
The states charge that the prod-
uct switches helped thwart ge-


neric competition, allowing the
companies to charge monopoly
prices for TriCor.
"With rising fuel costs, falling
housing values and investment
markets in turmoil, Floridians
50+ are facing tough economic
pressures," said Lori Parhar,
AARP's Florida state director. "Us-
ing generic medications is an im-
portant tool in holding down run-
away growth in prescription drug
costs. AARP applauds Attorney
General McCollum's strong stand
on behalf of older Floridians."
The lawsuit also alleges the
companies used patents, which
they obtained by deceiving the
Patent and Trademark Office and
improperly enforced and brought
a series of patent infringement
lawsuits against two generic com-
panies. According to the com-
plaint, Abbott and Fournier filed
at least ten lawsuits against two
generic companies who were at-
tempting to obtain FDA approval
for their generic versions of Tri-
Cor. Abbott and Fournier even-
tually lost or dismissed all of the
lawsuits. As a result of the prod-
uct switches and patent litiga-
tion, Abbott and Fournier have
successfully thwarted generic
competition and denied consum-
ers and state agencies the choice
of a lower priced therapeutically
equivalent generic.

Young people to 'Kick Butts'


HENDRY-Young people from
Hendry County are joining thou-
sands of kids across the country
who are taking part in Kick Butts
Day (KBD), a nationwide initiative
that makes kids leaders in the ef-
fort to stop youth tobacco use.
As part of the Kick Butts Day cel-
ebration, LaBelle and Clewiston
High School students are educat-
ing their peers on the number of
lives lost due to tobacco use and
exposure.
Throughout the year, youth
advocates take part in a variety
of activities to protect kids from
tobacco, including working with
elected officials to develop poli-
cies that reduce youth tobacco
use and exposure to secondhand
smoke and educating their peers
about tobacco companies' decep-
tive marketing practices.
On April 2, elementary, middle
and high school students across
the country are organizing KBD
events to fight youth tobacco use.
Young people will participate in a
variety of KBD activities such as
surveying tobacco advertising in
their communities; urging local of-
ficials to support anti-tobacco or-
dinances; and tossing caps, hats,
jackets and other items carrying
tobacco brand names into giant
dumpsters. In 2007, thousands
of kids carried out nearly 2,000


events. We expect this number to
increase in 2008.
"Kids are a powerful part of the
solution to reducing youth tobacco
use," said Matthew L. Myers, presi-
dent of the Campaign for Tobacco-
Free Kids, which coordinates KBD.
"For Kick Butts Day 2008, kids are
sending two important messages:
they want the tobacco industry to
stop targeting them with advertis-
ing and they want elected leaders
at all levels to do more to protect
them from tobacco."
Tobacco use is the leading
preventable cause of death in the
United States, killing more than
400,000 people every year. Every
day, more than 4,000 kids try their
first cigarettes; another 1,000 kids
become addicted smokers, one-
third of whom will die premature-
ly as a result.
The Washington, D.C.-based
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is
one of the largest non-governmen-
tal education and advocacy initia-
tives ever undertaken to decrease
youth tobacco use in the United
States. The Campaign strives to
build a healthier future for our chil-
dren by reducing tobacco use and
exposure to secondhand smoke.

sentation on the importance of
proper kidney care, the role of the
kidneys, diet management and


more.
This free event is open to the
entire community and anyone
interested in learning more about
kidney disease is invited to attend.

Water Utilities Department to host Wetlands Day


WEST PALM BEACH-"It's an
opportunity to learn about the
ecology of South Florida and un-
'derstand the importance of con-
servation," said Donald Campbell,
manager of the Green Cay Nature
Center which is the doorway to
the Green Cay Wetlands.
On Saturday, March 29, a col-
lection of local nature center ex-
perts, wetland birds and animals,
environmental volunteers, natu-
ralists and photographers will
gather to celebrate Wetlands Day
2008. Palm Beach County Water
Utilities Department sponsors this
free eventto promote awareness
of water conservation and envi-
ronmental issues.


At 10 a.m. Karen Milstein and
Arlene Spagna, nationally-pub-
lished nature photographers, will
give a photo critique and lecture
on nature photography, followed
by a presentation from the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict on the role of man-made wet-
lands in Everglades restoration at
11 a.m. At noon, Busch wildlife
will give a presentation on the
animals of the wetlands featuring
baby alligators and birds of prey.
The day will conclude with a re-
habilitated wildlife release.
Palm Beach County Environ-
mental Resource Management
will hand out native saplings and
information on reforestation. Na-


ture Center volunteers will give
boardwalk tours and provide sto-
ry telling at the chickee hut every
hour on the half hour.
The Green Cay and Wakoda-
hatchee Wetlands were built by
the Palm Beach County Water
Utilities Department as an impor-
tant component in its Reclaimed
Water Program. In addition to
providing valuable wildlife habi-
tat to more than 150 bird species,
turtles, fish, bobcats, foxes and
otters, the wetlands also receive
and help clean treated waste-
water that is piped underground
from the nearby Southern Region
Water Reclamation Facility. This
wastewater treatment plant also


supplies the surrounding com-
munity with reclaimed water, a
cost savings for consumers while
conserving fresh drinking water
that would otherwise be used
to quench thirsty South Florida
lawns and golf courses.
The Green Cay Wetlands are
located at 12800 Hagen Ranch
Road in Boynton Beach.
The Palm Beach County Water
Utilities Department is a depart-
ment of the Palm Beach County
Board of County Commissioners,
serving approximately 500,000
residents with drinking water,
reclaimed water and wastewater
services.

opened.
In that same year, the Palm
Beach County Board of Commis-
sioners dedicated the library in Mr.
Anthony's name the Clarence E.
Anthony Branch Library.
Later in his term, Mr. Anthony
gained prominence throughout
the state political scene, serv-
ing as a member of the Florida
League of Cities since 1990. He
became the state's League of Cit-
ies president in the mid-1990s.
In 1999, in perhaps Mr. An-
thony's greatest career moment,
he was selected as the National
League of Cities president, which
garnered national attention. Until
last week, he had served as an
executive committee member of
the national organization.
With many of his family mem-
bers in the audience, it felt as if
one era had come to a close, with
a new one about to begin the
same night.
"It means so much to have my
family supporting me," Mr. An-
thony said in his farewell speech.
"Without their support, not much
could have been done. The citi-
zens allowed me an opportunity
to go places.'
For one, Mr. Anthony's sister,
Olivia, emphasized her apprecia-
tion for what he accomplished in
his time as mayor.
"I truly love you and I'm proud
to be your sister," Ms. Anthony
said, passionately. "I'll always be
here for you so whatever you do,
you'll be successful. You have
made a lot of sacrifices for all of
us and I know you'll still be here
with us."
Mr. Anthony acknowledged
the entire commission for what
they have brought to the city, in-
cluding its new face; Linda John-
son. He did not forget to recognize
Lomax Harrelle, the city manager
and Virginia Walker, the city clerk,
among other for their time served
in South Bay.
"I hope my legacy will be of
respect to each individual," Mr.
Anthony said. "Each of us have a
vote. I told my commissioners to

said. "If that's the rule, then we
shouldn't be there. We thank the
-- city of Pahokee for the use of their
facilities and all of their support."
Last year's event, held at Paho-
kee Middle-Senior High School,
attracted about 1,000 participants.
Ms. Gross is hoping that an even
larger turnout occurs this time
around.
Tomorrow. evening, from 5 to
7 p.m., a Survior Reception will
take place on the recreational
field in honor of those who have
suffered from cancer. It will be im-
mediately followed by the open-
ing ceremony, with the cancer
survivors leading off the relay.
"The presence of survivors
gives strength and courage to the
community and reminds us that
we are making progress in the
battle against cancer," Ms. Gross
said.
With the purpose of raising
funds and awareness for cancer
prevention, the American Cancer
Society will be hosting a luminar-

the former city manager allegedly
committed either malfeasance or
misfeasance.
Then Commissioner Mary
Kendall seconded the vice-may-
or's motion, with Commissioner
Gwendolyn Asia-Holley also vot-
ing in favor of the termination.
Then Mayor Ray Torres San-
chez, however, voted in opposi-
tion of Mr. Finizio's termination,
with Commissioner Shelly Miller
absent from that Feb. 19 meet-
ing.
Prior to the decision on Finiz-
io's termination, Commissioner
Kendall consulted with the city
attorney for a five minute recess
regarding the possible action.
When the meeting re-con-
vened after the recess, Mr. Torciv-
ia explained to the commission-
ers that possible actions could be
taken in the process.
According to the city attorney,
the choice of actions included
terminating Mr. Finizio without
cause and three month's'sever-
ance pay and letting the city man-
ager go with cause and no sever-
ance pay.
After hearing those options,
the vice mayor chose to make a
motion on the latter option.
The vice-mayor's reasoning
for choosing to go that route in-
cluded Mr. Finizio's allegedly hos-
tile relationships with the Palm
Beach County government, U.S.
Representative Alcee Hastings,
the city staff and much of the gen-
eral public.
Other grounds for termination,
alleged by the vice-mayor, includ-
ed inappropriate letters sent by
Mr. Finizio to various media out-
lets and government officials, as
well as personnel decisions made
by the city manager without fol-
lowing the city's personnel rules.
In addition, the allegations of
Mr. Finizio illegally taping con-
versations of various government

city's accounts had been frozen
until March 25 -- the day that May-
or Whitaker was expected to be
formally sworn into office.
According to Raquel Diaz, the
city clerk, only the mayor and the
finance director have the authori-
zation to sign documents relating
to the city's finances.
For city items not related to
finances, including ordinances,
only the city clerk and mayor have
the right to sign those documents,
according to the city clerk..
According to the vice-mayor,
the mayor's signature card for
was in the process of being trans-
ferred from Mr. Sasser to Mayor
Whitaker.
"We should have had the
meeting on March 11, the night of
the election," Vice-Mayor Craw-
ford said.
"If we would have started the
meeting at 7:30, then we would
have left it open until the election
results came out. We would have
sworn in the candidates the next
day, not Monday."
According to Section 8-13 (C)
of the city charter, the winner of
the election will be sworn in at
the next city commission meeting


following the election.
"I had no intention of attend-
ing an illegally called meeting,"
Mr. Sasser said. "It's not about
who won or lost the election, it's
about respecting the city charter,
which is the law of the city of Pa-
hokee; And to me, it shows an in-
herent disregard for the law."
Section 2.04 (C) of the city
charter states that the vice-mayor
shall act as mayor during the ab-
sence or disability of the mayor.
Also, in section 2.08 (a) of
the city charter, a special meet-
ing may be held at the call of the
mayor or, in absence of the may-
or, at the call of the vice-mayor or
at the request of a majority of the
city commissioners.
So for those reasons, accord-
ing to Vice-Mayor Crawford, the
law was not broken.
But Mr. Sasser strongly dis-
agreed, standing by his claim
that was city charter was not fol-
lowed.
"You are sworn in to uphold
the law, and I take that very seri-
ously," Mr. Sasser said. "No one is
above the law."

officials drew the ire ot the then
vice-mayor, which was the prima-
ry basis of the motion to go forth.
Just before the termination
decision was made by the com-
missioners, Commissioners Asia-
Holley and Kendall said that they
were concerned about a possible
lawsuit that Mr. Finizio could file
against the city.
"I'm not pleased that Mr. Finiz-
io was hired in the first place,"
said then-Commissioner Kendall.
"I'm glad that the commission-
ers could correct the mistake so
that our government could move
forward and work with other of-
ficials to do what's best for our
residents and citizenry."
Not all the commissioners
agreed with that assessment.
"I think that it was a bad de-
cision to fire Mr. Finizio," Com-
missioner Sanchez said. "Maybe
because a city manager doesn't
meet someone's criteria for the
week, that means he's liable to
get fired."
Moving forward with
the lawsuit
According to the city attorney,
Mr. Finizio sued the city on March*
30, 2007 due to what he believed
was a breach of contract.
Mr. Torcivia said the lawsuit
was initially set for over $200,000.
In the lawsuit, Mr. Finizio claimed
that the city denied him his yearly
salary (which was $125,000), plus
a host of benefits and legal fees,
according to the city attorney. -
The city later filed a coun-
terclaim on the lawsuit, which
claimed that it did not owe Mr.
Finizio any money since he did
not properly handle his role as
city manager,, according to Mr.
-Torcivia.
"It's better to have a case set-
tled than to have to go through the
expense and stress of a lawsuit,"
Mr. Torcivia said. "The uncertainty
of a possible trial would not have
been good for either side."
