Morning shootout at Fremd Village


Shotgun victim used
was submitted into
evidence

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - It is a frightening
experience when anyone gets
caught up in a random shoot-
ing.
Not only that, but it can be a
haunting memory for those who
survive from the incident,
Frankie Harvey, 23, along with
his brother, 27-year-old Antonio


Harvey and girlfriend, 26-year-
old Latonya Kennedy, will most
likely remember the early morn-
ing hours of Sunday, May 18.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
at about 2:15 a.m., numerous
rounds were allegedly fired at
Frankie while in the company
of his brother and girlfriend. All
three were reportedly standing
outside of their vehicles at 177
Shirley Drive in Fremd Village.
The victim alleged that three
unknown men approached him
from the northeast corner of
the Fremd Village Community


Center building as started shoot-
ing in his direction, striking his
vehicle, according to a release.
Investigators later revealed that
the victim had a shotgun in his
possession and returned fire at
the assailants.
It is not known at this time
whether or not the shooting was
gang-related.
Officials said that the victim
drove his vehicle from the scene
to his residence and upon re-
turning to Shirley Drive, he and
his girlfriend attempted to make
a report alleging that she had
been shot.

The Class of 2008 graduating seniors at Glades Central High School are elated at what
they accomplished as tfey heard the order from Dr. Camille Coleman to turn their tas-
sels around - a sure sign that the seniors have just graduated from high school.


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Central High School Class of 2008 graduated from high school on Friday,
May 16 with 210 of the 233 seniors earning high school diplomas, a rate of 90.13 per-
cent. In addition, the Class of 2008 as a whole earned a total of $3,154,200 in college
scholarships just two days earlier at the Senior Awards Ceremony, held on Wednesday,
May 14. Dr. Camille Coleman and all of the staff would like to thank Ms. Josette Bell-
Bryant and the guidance department on assisting with all of the scholarship efforts for
the graduating class.


It was revealed that the girl-
friend was not actually shot, but
grazed by flying glass. She re-
portedly suffered minor injuries
to her foot.
Detectives said the victim was
escorted to 748 Fraser Court,
where the shotgun used was re-
trieved from the trunk of a gold
Lexus and later submitted into
evidence.
"We're hoping that some-
body could come forward with
more information that could
assist the detectives in clearing
this case," said Sergeant Pete
Palenzuela, a spokesperson for


the sheriff's office. "This would
help in our continued efforts to
reduce crime in the area."
The Palm Beacl County Vio-
lent Crimes Task Force has ad-
opted this case, as the investiga-
tion is ongoing.
The sheriff's office encour-
ages anyone with information
concerning this incident to ei-
ther contact Agent J. Smith from
the Violent Crimes Task Force at;
688-4000 or call Crime Stoppers
at 1-800-458-TIPS.

Man shot in leg


Victim is in stable
condition

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - A crowd gath-
ering in the 400's block of
Rardin Avenue resulted in a
potentially deadly encoun-
ter during the early morning
hours of Sunday, May 18.
According to informa-
tion provided by the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Of-
fice (PBSO), at 2:01 a.m., not
long after Club 57 closed,
several gunshots were fired,
effectively dispersing the
group of people area.
Club 57 is located on 1470
Muck City Road.
It-was revealed that Road
Patrol Units were conducting
proactive patrol when the in-
cident occurred.
Detectives said that a


gunshot wound hit 21-year-
old Tamichael Boldin in his
right leg above the knee. He
was reportedly found lean-
ing against a white Mitsubi-
shi Galant across from 257
Buddy White in Pahokee.
The victim was later air-
lifted to St. Mary's Medical
Center, where it was re-
vealed that his injuries are
not life-threatening and is
listed in stable condition.
"The citizens of Pahokee
have been working with
the sheriff's office in reduc-
ing crimes drastically," said
Lieutenant Reinaldo Alonso,
the District 12 commander.
"However, when we have
cases like. these, we need
our citizens to step forward
with information regarding
the crime and the possible
suspects. Together, we can
solve crime and prevent any

Water treatment



plant concerns


Belle Glade may
shut off services to
South Bay

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY - The city of
South Bay is not in a good fi-
nancial state, to say the least.
Not having its own waste-
water treatment plant is a ma-
jor part of the city's problems
right now, as it currently de-


pends on the city.of Belle Glade
for its sewer services.
Compounding matters is
the fact that according to the
City of Belle Glade, South Bay is
in arrears with payments for its
deep well injection and sewage
treatment.
On Tuesday, May 13, gov-
ernment officials met with rep-
resentatives from both cities to
address these two major con-
cerns.

GC graduate with big dreams


Recent family loss
fuels a burning
desire

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - A driven
and focused individual will
most likely become successful
in life.
Those two characteristics
are considered by many a
general description of Alonzo
Vereen, a 2008 graduate from
Glades Central High School.
The son of Valerie Ford and
Adrian Vereen, who is also
known as 'Big A', Alonzo ac-


complished an amazing feat on
May 16, graduating as the No. 3
ranked senior out of 228 in the
Class of 2008. In addition, Alon-
zo graduated from high school
in only three years and has re-
ceived 21 credits from Palm
Beach Community College.
Alonzo was one of the two
area high school recipients
of the Bill Gates Millennium
Scholarship, worth a total of
$125,928. In all, he received
over $250,000 in total scholar-
ship money at the Glades Cen-
tral Senior Awards and Scholar-
ship Ceremony, held on May
14.
The 17-year-old, who is
heading to Morehouse College


in Atlanta this fall, will be ma-
joring in political science with
an emphasis in urban develop-
ment. Alonzo, who also wants
to minor in African-American
studies, would like to graduate
from college in four years and
later obtain a master's and doc-
toral degree in public adminis-
tration.
This sounds like a driven
and focused individual, indeed.

Alonzo's life
Alonzo is proud to say that
he has a number of role mod-

Polygamy? Is there a problem? newSZap.COm


By Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D,
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The State of Texas recently has
been involved in breaking up a
polygamous sect and has received
a great deal of news attention.
It has caused news contro-
versy and outcries among some
of the "victims" as a result of the
large number of displacements of
the helpless, the children, in the
process.
Should people be left to go
their own way in a "modern"
world? Our Church has been in-
volved in missionary activities in
a part of the world with customs
and outlooks different than our
own, including polygamy.
When encountered, the thrust
was to point it out as something
to be remedied; something "un-
christian." The newly formed
Christians countered that the West
ihas its "polygamy" too. They re-
'ply that in their part of the world,
Sa man has four wives at one time'
{in the West a man has one wife at
four different times.
The argument is that they
have "horizontal polygamy" and
we have "vertical polygamy," so
what's the big -deal? Their point
is a compelling one from their
perspective, speaking to the con-


edition where we find ourselves
in Western society today. What,
then, is wrong with polygamy?
Certainly, it was an Old Testament
practice and many of the real he-
roes and Biblical patriarchs prac-
ticed it.
Why the problem? I saw the
answer a few weeks back when
I attended my fiftieth high school
reunion. Claude and Annette
came, having gone steady' all
through high school and marry-
ing shortly after graduation. They
appeared with a certain youthful
look, a certain calm, a certain
peace it seemed, and holding
hands as they talked to their old
classmates. They obviously had
something that many are missing
in the societies of today. The Bible
has prohibitions about relations
outside of marriage and the Ten
Commandments specifically con-
demn adultery (Exodus 20:14),
and Proverbs (chapter 7) cautions
again loose relationships. Why?
I think the answer is in the
way we are made. God has cre-
ated us in such a way that we
cannot know many others in
this lifetime at any depth or with
any significance without a total
and long-term commitment and
relationship with that other. It is
impossible to know many people
with great intimacy or with a ful-


filling level of involvement with-
out a great investment of time,
concentration and commitment
of self to that relationship.
The root meaning of "adul-
tery" is to "water down" (do you
remember hearing about "adul-
terated milk" or milk that has
been watered down?).
We seemingly have a choice
between several lesser relation-
ships in this life, or a limited num-
ber (perhaps only one) relation-
ship that is in depth and fulfilling.
Polygamy, even without regard
to human jealousy or favoritism,
means the sharing of intimacy
and the limited possibility of in-
depth fulfillment that comes in
traditional relationships with one
love. It will mean that as more are
added to an "extended family,"
the time, the amount of intimacy,
the sharing, the working toward
shared goals, the building of
bonds with loved ones and ones
own children will all be dimin-
ished.
Relationships will become
more functional, each partner will
be valued for the role they fill and
not for their being as a person.
No matter how "comfortable,"
no matter how well provided-
for; Shared love in this sense is
not complete love. We condemn
slavery (it was in the Bible too!)


because it does not treat persons
as persons, but values them only
for the role they fulfill.
Their being is watered down,
they are seen as less than the per-
son God intends, or intended for
them to be. When "marriages"
treat persons as less than whole,
complete persons, and reduces
them to receiving partial fulfill-
ment of their place in a family, as
someone to have a part of a life
but not all of it, this too is a kind of
slavery. Polygamy denies partners
from whole, fulfilling, in-depth
relations, it treats persons like ob-
jects. This is the "watering down"
of personhood, treating another
human being as less than whole,
less than the creation that bears
the image of the Creator. That is
wrong.
That deserves our best efforts
to educate, to help, to assure, to
protect, to correct where it is abu-
sive. In the meantime, we need to
love, protect, and hold sacred the
great gift of personhood, made
whole, complete, and sanctified
in our homes, and marriages.
The Lord chose to share an
earthly home when He came
to live among us; Two parents,
siblings, security and great love.
Need we look further?


How to know what God expects of you


Jackie Miller
Ralph Waldo Emerson asked:
"Why should we not have a first-
hand and immediate experience
of God?"
Of course in every age, some
persons do have spiritual experi-
ences that give them a sense of
closeness with God, a feeling of
really having made contact with
Deity. But more people go through
life, perhaps holding some sort of
faith in a higher Being, without
any real sense of really knowing
God as a living Presense."
* At First Christian we are just
completing a video study, "Vi-
sualized Bible Study Series", in
which the truth is revealed that
there have been Three Ages of
Time. First the "Patriarchal Age"
or "Father Rule Age" in which
God spake directly with the heads
of families and gave His law This
age began with Adam and contin-
ued through Genesis to the book
of Exodus, chapter 20. The Bible


says "God spake in times past to
our Fathers" (Hebrews 1:1). The
Second Age was the "Mosaic.
Age" which began with Moses
receiving the law on Mt. Sinai
and the nation of Israel came un-
der covenant with God. This age
continued all the way through the
Old Testament and the first four
books of the New Testament, the
Gospels. The Bible says "The law
came by Moses but grace and
truth came through Jesus Christ"
(John 1:17). It also says that Jesus
was born under the law (Gala-
tians 4:4). The Third Age is the
"Christian Age" that began after
the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Great Commission was given
at the beginning of this age, "Go
into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every creature, he that
believeth and is baptized shall be
saved, he that believeth not shall
be damned. (Mark 16:15-16). This
commission is also found in Mat-
thew 28:18-20 and Luke 24 46-47.


This Great Commission began to
be carried out on the first Pente-
cost after the resurrection and as-
cention of Jesus. The Gospel was
preached for the first time as a
fact in Acts 2 and when the hear-
ers asked what they should do,
the one who had the keys 6f the
Kingdom, Simon Peter said, "Re-
pent and be baptized everyone of
you in the name of Jesus Christ*
for the remission of sins and ye
shall receive the gift of the Holy
Spirit." With this the "Chistian
Age" and "The Christian Church"
was launched. Those who gladly
received Peter's word were bap-
tized the same day and they con-
tinued steadfastly in the Apostle's
Doctrine, Fellowship, Breaking of
Bread and Prayer (Acts 2:41-42).
Unless one understands the
Three Ages he' cannot "rightly
divide the word of truth" (2 Tim.
2:15). Romans 10:17 says "Faith
cometh by hearing and hearing
by The Word of God.", ,


How can one go past the bar-
riers that seem to separate you
from the Infinite One? First, you
must have faith in God and the
Gospel (Heb. 11:6, Mark 16:15-
16). Second, because you do be-
lieve the Gospel (Christ died for
our sins, was buried and arose
from the dead the third day. I Cor.
15:1-4), you choose to Repent of
sins (Acts 17:30-31), Third, you
are willing to confess your faith
in Christ (Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-
10). Fourth, you will submit to be
immersed in water in the name of
the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20), for the
remission of sins and to receive
the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), and
thus you have obeyed the Gospel.
(Romans 6:1-5, 16-18).
Yes, you can have a "born
again" experience just as Jesus
said in John 3:5 "Except a man
be born of water and the Spirit he
cannot enter into the kingdom of
God."


They gave their today for our tomorrows


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The Civil War ended in 1865.
But it wasn't until 1997 that the
last shot of that war was fired. In
1997, two young boys were play-
ing around with their new metal
detector when they came across
a live shell that dated back to the
Civil War. The police were came
and explode the shell, in many
ways making it the last shell fired
from the Civil War.
It's pretty amazing that years
after the end of a war, its weapons
could still be alive and capable of
destruction.
Yet that seems to be the nature
of war: its effects linger on in the
lives of people and nations for
many generations. Most of us can
recall the World War II photo of
five Marines raising an American
flag on the island of Iwo Jima.
The man in the center of the
photo was John Bradley. Al-
though Bradley won the Navy
Cross for saving a fellow soldier's
life, he preferred not to talk about
the war and refused to accept any
hero worship that others tried to
force on him.
One of the few comments
Bradley ever made about the war,
he made to his young son in re-


sponse to a remark about hero-
ism. Bradley replied, "The real
heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys
who didn't come back."
This weekend, we honor
those men and women who
didn't come back. The ones who,
in President Abraham Lincoln's
words in the Gettysburg Address,
"gave the last, full measure of de-
votion."
When we reflect on the.honor
and heroism of our soldiers, we
are confronted with the sacri-
fices they made, as well as our
response to those sacrifices. The
whole concept of anyone making
sacrifices for us, much less dying
for us, sometimes makes us un-
easy. Confronting their heroism
forces us to stop and examine our
own lives.
Why did they do what they
did? What cause is worth dying
for? Would we be willing to do
the same?
Celebrities are people who
make news, heroes are people
who make history. The qualities
of heroism are eternal -- self-sacri-
fice, courage, honor, duty.
A man who served in the
Navy during World War II shared
that one night he was running
his transport across the Atlantic


when he noticed the white trail
of a torpedo coming toward him.
His ship was filled with hundreds
of soldiers, and the potential loss
of life would have been devastat-
ing.
Nearby, a smaller ship had
also seen the torpedo coming.
The captain of the smaller vessel
maneuvered his ship between the
transport and the torpedo. The
explosion destroyed his ship, kill-
ing all those on board.
The man who told this story
ended it by saying, "The skipper
of that other ship was my best
friend."
Slowly, he remarked, "You
know, there is a verse in the Bible
which has special meaning for
me now. It is this: "Greater love
has no one than this, that a man
lay down his life for his friends."
What kind -of love would give
itself up for another? What kind
of love would be willing to die for
you and me?
It is the love that Jesus dem-
onstrated to show us how much
we mean to God. It is the love we
celebrate today in the example of
those soldiers who gave their lives
for our freedom.
In India there is a cemetery
where the bodies of American


soldiers are buried. Over the en-
trance to the cemetery are these
words: "Tell Them We Gave Our
Todays for Their Tomorrows."
Let's never forget that our to-
morrows were bought with a
-price. Someone had to pay with
their lives, so that we might be
free today.
There is no way we can suf-
ficiently say, "Thank you." In the
revised words of the hymn, The
Battle Hymn of the Republic, "As
He died to make men holy, let us
live to make men free, God's truth
is marching on."

Beta Sigma Phi
Celebrates Founder's
Day
Recently the Beta Sigma Phi
area chapters celebrated Found-.
er's Day in the Fellowship Hall at
the First Baptist Church in Belle
Glade. Founder's Day is a yearly


event enjoyed by all chapters. A
delightful luncheon was enjoyed
by over 50 members with Xi Zeta
Mu hosting the affair.
The event was catered by Phyl-
lis Sloan and members of the Ju-
nior Honor Society at Glades Day
School assisted with serving. The
Fellowship Hall was beautifully
decorated with yellow roses and
ferns. Carlos and Nola Reynolds
from Lake Harbor provided ar-
rangements of their beautiful hi-
biscus blooms. There were over
100 of the most gorgeous blooms
on display for the enjoyment of
the attendees.
Several of the members pres-
ent received the Order of the Rose,
which was presented by Sandra
Chamblee with the assistance of
Donna Motes. Karen Corbin and
Dollie Penuel, both accomplished
pianists, played several numbers.
Pat McKee, President of Xi Zeta
Mu, was the emcee and several
other members assisted. The
president of each chapter gave
highlights of their past year with
Laureate Gamma Zeta doing a
song and dance routine which
was very entertaining. Gene Cross
and Virginia Anderson were rec-
ognized for their 60 years of mem-
bership in Beta Sigma Phi.

lorida Fish Busters


Pasture and West Pasture to Pine
Lakes. Other changes at Tenoroc
include limiting discharge of fire-
arms to the firing range or during
FWC-sponsored events and re-
quiring dogs to be leashed, unless
authorized by the FWC.
A statewide rule change rede-
Afined species that may be taken
for use as bait with a dip net,
cast net (one inch maximum
stretched .mesh), trap or minnow
seine. Those species now include
golden shiners of any size and
other freshwater non-game fish
(including catfish) less than eight
inches total length, unless specifi-
cally prohibited.
Non-game freshwater fish of
any size also may be harvested
with cast nets (no mesh or net
size limit) in the South and North-
east regions, in Citrus and Glades
counties, and in most of the
Southwest Region. An exception
makes possession or use of cast
nets in waters adjoining Saddle
Creek FMA in Polk County illegal.
This removes the size limit on cast
nets in the South Region, making
it consistent with other regions
where they are allowed.
Fishing gear used by recre-
ational or commercial fishermen
must be marked clearly and leg-


ibly with the fisherman's name
and address.
The most significant rule
changes concern Lake Okeecho-
bee to enhance, the fishery's re-
covery from recent environmental
setbacks. The black bass length
regulation on Lake Okeechobee
moved from a 13 to 18 inch slot
limit to an 18 inch minimum
length limit. Also, a new rule es-
tablishes a 10 inch .length for black
crappie on the lake. In addition,
the boundary definition for Lake
Okeechobee now includes the
C-41-A Canal from the intersec-
tion of the C-38 Canal upstream
to the S-84 structure.
On Lake Trafford in Collier
County, there is now a five fish
bag limit on black bass, which
must be 18 inches or longer, with
only one bass 22 inches or more
in total length. Feel free to contact
the FWC and complete a survey
(see MyFWC.com/Fishing and
scroll down in the right column
to "Take the Survey"). Purchas-
ing a five-year freshwater fishing
license helps conservation efforts
and saves you money. There is a
special offer going on right now
where you get free stuff in the mail
when you buy one (see MyFWC.

Remember Shakespeare: What fools these mortals be


"What fools these mortals be,"
wrote Shakespeare.
Have you ever met a fool? Have
you ever been a fool? Both have
proven to be a thorny encounter.
How foolish we are when
God is not center of our lives and
when men exalt themselves in-
stead of God.
This was illustrated recently
when a couple in central Penn-


sylvania named their newborn
daughter, "Atheist Evolution." Her
father said that the name was
their reaction to the popularity of
biblical names.
He said, "There's so many
people named Christian or Chris-
tina.
This is just one person named
Atheist. What the heck's the dif-
ference?" (Cited in The Pastor's


Weekly Briefing, Volume 2, Num-
ber 38).
The psalmist David describes
the foolishness of sin: The fool
says in his heart, "There is no
God."
They are corrupt, their deeds
are vile; there is no one who does
good.
The Lord looks down from
heaven on the sons of men to see

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AN AIR CONSTRUCTION PERMIT AND A TITLE V AIR OPERATION PERMIT REVISION

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION

Draft Air Construction Permit No.: 0510015-020-AC
DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Revision Project No.: 0510015-021-AV
Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation Clewiston Facility
Hendry County

The Department of Environmental Protection (permitting authority) gives notice of its intent to issue an Air Construction Permit and the Title VAir Operation Permit to Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation for its Clewiston Facility located at 1820 County
Road 833, Clewiston, Hendry County. The applicant's name and address are: Tristan Chapman, Vice President, Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation, 1820 County Road 833, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Corporation requests that an air construction permit and a revision to their Title V permit be issued to authorize the monitoring of scrubber water pH as the monitoring method of the two citrus peel dryers for emissions of sulfur dioxide rather
than a sulfur dioxide continuous emissions monitor.
The permitting authority will issue the Air Construction Permit and the PROPOSED Title V Air Operation Permit Revision and subsequent FINAL Title V Air Operation Permit Revision, in accordance with the conditions of the Draft Air Construction Permit and the
DRAFT Title VAir Operation Permit Revision unless a response received in accordance with the following procedures results in a different decision or significant change of terms or conditions.
The permitting authority will accept written comments concerning the proposed Draft Air Construction Pernmit issuance action for a period of 14 (fourteen) dayg from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Written comments should be provided to the Department
of Environmental Protection Bureau of Air Monitoring and Mobile Sources, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Mail Station #5510, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. Any written comments filed shall be made available for public inspection. Ifwritten comments received result in a significant
change in this Draft Air Construction Permit, the permitting authority shall issue a Revised Draft Air Construction Permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice.
The Permitting Authority will accept written comments concerning the DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Revision for a period of thirty (30) days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. .Written comments must be post-marked and all facsimile comments
must be received by the close of business (5:00 pm), on or before the end of this 30-day period, by the Permitting Authority at the Department of Environmental Protection Bureau of Air Monitoring and Mobile-Sources, 2600 Blair Stone Road, Mail Stafion #5510, Tallahassee, Florida
32399-2400 or facsimile 850/922-6979. As part of his or her comments, any person may also request that the Permitting Authority hold a public meeting on this permitting action. If the Permitting Authority determines there is sufficient interest for a public meeting, it will publish
notice of the time, date, and location on the Department's official web site for notices at http://fawvdos.state.fl.us/ and in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected by the permitting action. For additional information, contact the Permitting Authority at the above address or
phone number. If written comments or comments received at a public meeting result in a significant change to the DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Revision, the Permitting Authority shall issue a Revised DRAFT Title V Air Operation Permit Revision and require, if applicable,
another Public Notice. All comments filed will be made available for public inspection.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting decision may petition for an administrative hearing in accordance with Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.). The petition must contain the information set forth below and
must be filed (received) in the Office of General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written notice under Section
120.60(3), F.S., must be filed within 14 (fourteen) days of publication of the public notice or within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of the nonce of intent, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), F.S., however, any person who asked the permitting authority for notice of agency
action may file a petition within 14 (fourteen) days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the appli-
cable time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., or to intervene in.this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be only at the approval of
the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code (F.A.C.).
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's action is based must contain the following information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name address and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, if any, which shall be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an explanation of how petitioner's sub
stantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
(c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received notice of the agency action, or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the petition must so state;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which entitle petitioner to relief;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require reversal or modification of the agency's proposed action; and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authority's, action is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means that the permitting authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this notice of intent. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the permitting authority on the applications) have the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42 United States Code (U.S.C.) Section 7661d(b)(2), any person may petition the Administrator of the EPA within 60 (sixty) days of the expiration of the Administrator's 45 (forty-five) day review period as established at 42 U.S.C.
Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to issuance of any Title V permit. Any petition shall be based only on objections to the Title V permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty) day public comment period provided in this notice, unless the petitioner demonstrates
to the Administrator of the EPA that it was impracticable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any TitJe V
permit properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, F.A.C. Petitions filed with the Administrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Administrator of the EPA at: U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W., Washington,
D.C. 20460.

Biofuels: Local family at round level
local farmers.
� oTrying to keep the family in the
family farm is getting tougher be-
cause of rising costs and regula-
tions. For instance, Bryan 11 said,
the cost of fertilizer has doubled
in the past year because the US is
shipping its ingredients overseas.
.Corporate procedures have the
effect of keeping locally-grown
produce out of the hometown
groceries. For instance, when lo-
" , cal farmers are harvesting water-
melons, local stores feature mel-
ons from Central America. They
. won't buy locally because their
corporate offices already have
A their supplies set up. Local farm-
Sers are shipping their melons to

" CStill the Beers are trying to stay
optimistic. If the jatropha experi-
ment works out, it could mean an
important success for the family
business.
The Beer family isn't just look-
ing to the future, they're laying
the groundwork now - hopefully
for a better life for themselves and
Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant the rest of us. As Bryan senior
Bryan II, Bryan and Brent Beer are working hard to make a success of their new jatropha put it, "If you shoot at the moon

Jatropha nut
may be promising
investment

By Patty Brant
Independent Newspapers
Everyone is -affected by rising
oil costs - and in ways that may
not be obvious.
In recent years the push to
come up with appropriate alter-
natives to petroleum oil has be-
come a surge.
Unfortunately, many of the
biofuels that have been touted as
alternatives have been based, on
food sources.
For instance, ethanol made
from corn was to make a big dif-
ference in this country's depen-
dence on oil.
A quick check of the prices of
grain products shows what hap-
pens when large amounts of food
are diverted to other uses.
Food prices have gone up as
supplies have gone down. Clear-
ly, there,,needs to be another solu-
tion.
Another plant, called the jatro,-
pha curcas, is coming into focus
in the hunt for a cheap, sustain-
able source of fuel.
In Hendry County, the Beer
family has already incorporated
20 acres of jatropha into their cit-
rus and vegetable operation.
Bryan Beer and his sons,
Bryan II and Brent, are taking
the initiative - hoping they're on
the ground floor of a real biofuel
break-through.
Even so, the Beers are the first
to admit they're just feeling their
way through this new territory.
"We're looking to diversify,"
said Bryan.
He said he saw an advertise-
ment for the plant about a year
ago and decided to look into it.
With some tractors using as
much as 120 gallons of diesel per
day, the reasons are obvious.
At this time, jatropha oil can
be added to diesel in a 20-80 mix.
If the Beers' experiment works
well, it will mean a 20 percent
savings on their fuel bill.
They're hoping that in time the
process will be improved for even
better savings.
This tropical plant has been
used in places like Mexico, Cen-
tral America and India for some
time.
Jatropha seeds contain about
31-37 percent oil, which can be
used as an additive to diesel fuel.
The seeds, although toxic, also
have some medicinal purposes
and the "cake," or portion of the


seed left over after the oill is ex-
tracted, is high in nitrogen fixing
compounds and can be used as
organic fertilizer, according to ja-
tropha supplier My Dream Fuel,
LLC.
Extension Agent for Hendry
County Gene McAvoy said this ja-
tropha is new to him, too. He is
aware of the Beers' experimenta-
tion with it and is taking a wait-
and-see attitude about just how
important the plant will be as a
biofuel source.
He said it is an "industrial"
plant that requires permitting,
especially for the disposal of by-
products. The plant is somewhat
toxic, so it cannot be used to feed
cattle like orange rind or some
other by-products.
"I'd like to see a little more
evidence, more information," Mr.
McAvoy said, "A lot of ideas come
and go." He cites the craze to raise
emus and llamas in recent years.
The Lee County Extension Of-
fice is also experimenting with ja-
tropha. Recently, Lt. Gov. Jeff Kot-
tcamp attended the ceremonial
planting of about 100 seedlings
in Lee County, Many others were
planted on a one-acre demonstra-
tion farm at Orange River Park in
the Buckingham.' ........ ""'.
. Jatropha is an industrial prod '
uct that, to become a real factor
in the fuel industry, would require
a large amount of acreage as
well as an infrastructure to sup-
port production and distribution.
That's a large piece of the picture
that just isn't there yet. The overall
costs are also unknown as yet, he
added.
Mr. McAvoy feels there may be
"something there" with the jatro-
pha plant, but gaining accurate
information and taking it to the
final stages is a process that must
be taken a step at a time.
The plant has attracted the at-
tention of some very heavy hitters.
Archer Daniels Midland Company
(ADM), Bayer CropScience AG
and Daimler AG are interested in
the potential of the jatropha. Ac-
cording to the Bayer CropScience
Web site, in addition to its pos-
sible fuel advantages, jatropha
also has a positive carbon dioxide
balance, which can contribute to
protecting the climate.
On the downside, the jatropha
plant and seeds are toxic and re-
quire careful handling. Harvest-
ing is labor intensive because the
nuts ripen at different times and
have to be picked by hand. Ex-
perts say it will take years of re-
search before the plant could be
a viable fuel source.
The State of Florida is. also

investigating biofuel production
and the Florida Biofuels Associa-
tion is a partnership between ag-
riculture and waste management
to explore market opportunities
for biofuels derived from waste
products.
Meanwhile, the Beer family
is betting that jatropha will be a
part of the future fuel market. The
family has roots in Hendry Coun-
ty agriculture that go back to 1965
when Bryan's father, Victor Beer,
got started in the citrus business.
At one time, the family owhed
6,300 acres, all in citrus. Now they
have sold off some property and
have about 1,500 acres in both
citrus and vegetables.
Farming is a way of life. Farm-
ers, they say, are the best stew-
ards of the land, providing habitat
for wild animals and taking care
of the water supply.
Brent mainly handles the
family's leveling and land devel-
opment division while Bryan II
handles the groves and farms.
Dad has graduated to mostly pro-
viding guidance, he said.
Bryan II has more or less taken
the lead in jatropha production.
He has learned a lot but admits
there are a lot of unknowns. The
plant will gro\\ in poor soil, but
*he said they're experimenting
with the best way to. cultivate it.
They have planted some from
seed purchased from My Dream
Fuel, a company owned by a
Washington, D.C. attorney named
Paul Dalton.
At this point they're treating
the crop like groves, using the
same fertilizers and weeding the
jatropha fields as they would for
citrus and it seems to be thriving.
However, the plant is not "main-
tenance free," they point out. The
plants are hardy, but do not like
the cold.
They put their plants in the
ground last October,. starting
them from seed about two years
ago. They're not sure, but expect
a first crop in about 2009 or 2010.
Although everything is very "iffy"
right now, they believe the yield
should be about 1,000 gallons of
oil per acre. As they learn more
about the plant and the process,
they hope. to increase that yield.
Inside the nuts are pods with
the precious oil. At this time, the
nuts must be picked by hand but
eventually the Beers expect a me-
chanical harvester of some type
will be available.
The family is looking at buy-
ing its own press so they can have
the entire operation on-site. They
think they can serve both their
own diesel needs as well as other

Getting tough and physical
The Glades Day Gators had a very solid spring football
practice recently in preparation for their spring football
game at home against American Heritage-Plantation,
which is tomorrow night. One highlight of the action came
from a lineman drill overseen by defensive coordinator and
lineman coach Eric Pitts, who was teaching Chris Franco,
Josh Cuthbert and Tyler LeCroy, all linemen, a 'trap' play
that's designed for the linemen to squeeze and close the
hole from the opposition.

sage to all Clewiston Tigers football fans: The Tigers will play their spring game on May 24 at 7 p.m. in Naples.


Hendry County Speedway Race Report


Hendry County Speedway
- hosted a ladies night out on Sat-.
urday evening.
Wives, daughters and friends
were given the chance to test
their skills on the race track.
One of the stand outs was
number 32 Katie Campbell. She
drove very well and added that
she would be joining the Mini
Stock class in the future.
Another driver who earned the
respect of the fans was April Mos-
ley. No surprise that she can drive
she is the daughter of track veter-
an Sabrina Mosley of Pahokee.
I think after this event we may
see her in her own car in the' fu-
ture. Dorothy Jackson also re-
ceived honors for driving Adam
Powell's car flawless through the
run.
Limited Late Model action is
always a blast. Split heat races
saw number 44 Tim Powers of
Okeechobee draw the number 1
pill and run away with the heat
race.
In the 2nd heat there was a
lot more action. nurriber 96 Bob
Steinmetz of Naples and number
15 Bob Ragula of Dania got to-
gether on the back stretch send-
ing Steinmetz right into the path-
of number 35 Calvin Fillingame of
Labelle. Fillingame's car flew into
the air and then slammed the wall
ending his evening.
Steinmetz would replace a
front tire during the clean up and
race back to 3rd in the heat won
by number 61 Thomas Scott of
Okeechobee.
Tim Powers continued his
win streak on his birthday. Eas-
ily drove away from the field on
every restart to capture the check-
ered flag.
Thomas Scott had run 2nd
most, of the race but ended the
night with a DNF. Steinmetz who
had been running 3rd was sent to
the back for losing the nose of his
car and causing a caution.
On the restart Steinmetz was
up against the wall trying to put
the pass on number 3 Joe Henke
when Henke shot up the track to
miss a spinning number 17 David
Morr.
Steinmetz and Henke bounced


off each other and the wall all the
way down the straight into turn
one where they collected Morr in
the pile up.
Greg Morrison number 12 was
able to escape all harm and finish
2nd. Tommy Hill number 88 of
Clewiston was given credit for the
3rd spot after being spun out on
the final lap.
Street Stock Division is always
great racing. Bobby Vaughn of Le-
high Acres won heat number 1.
Bob Cook of Palm City drove to
victory in heat number 2.
When the 13 car field took to
the track for the feature, number
29 Jesse Brown was at the rear of
the pack.
In just one lap with some good
use of the top side of the track
he was in 6th position. Nothing
could stop him from getting to the
front in a big hurry. Jesse Brown
of Clewiston got the win from the
last starting spot.
Jerry Ferrell number 98 of
Okeechobee had a spin early in
the race was able to drive back
to 2nd. Tommy Hill number 1H of
Clewiston grabbed the 3rd posi-
tion.
Steve Mosley number 1 of Pa-
hokee grabbed the win in heat
1 of the Pure Stocks. Then it
was number 9 Brian Morgan of
Okeechobee in the 2nd heat.
Morgan who has had his share
of bad luck over the last couple
of weeks was able to stay out in
front and lead the whole feature.
Steve Mosley put on a good run
but had to settle for 2nd.
Johnny Mosley number 68 of
Belle Glade grabbed himself a top
three spot.
Bomber Division hit the track
with 9 cars. J.R. Fitch of Vero
Beach took the heat and feature
wins.
After the race the driver of the
big Chevy Caprice said work is
under way for a Street Stock ride
in his near future, Camaro style
my favorite.
Vincent Taylor number 48 of
Port St. Lucie had a 5th place fin-
ish in the heat but was able to
score the 2nd spot in the feature.
Melissa Agent number 007 of La-
belle drove to the 3rd position.

Mini. Mods showed a stronger
8 :car turnout. Glenrir Bidt-ell of,
Loxahatchee took the win in the
caution free heat race.
The feature was "follow the
leader" with the leader being
number 10 Wayne Hildebrand
of Okeechobee. He got into the
groove and on to victory. S.C.
Klinger number 28 of Pembroke
Pines was trying all he could do to
catch Hildebrand but had to settle
for 2nd.
Ron Dubeau number 11 of
Royal Palm Beach grabbed the
3rd position.
Mini Stocks were shown the
way -through the heat race by
number 00 Christian Augsperger
of Palm Beach Gardens who is
only 13 years of age.
The feature event was led
mostly by number 32 Eddie
Campbell of Stuart. All drivers
nose to tail most of the race. On
the last lap last corner Augsperger
got into the back corner of Camp-
bell and brought him around.
The flagmen wanted to rerun
the last lap but all the cars had
already left the track so scoring
went back to the last completed
lap.
The win was awarded to
Campbell. Augsperger would still
get 2nd. Devlin DelleChiaie num-
ber 3d of Jensen Beach would get
3rd.

Fraction Party


Students in Ms. Berard and
Mrs. Taylor's Kindergarten class
had an interesting way of learn-
ing about fractions. During the
month of April, students read
stories about things being divided
into two, three and four equal
parts. They illustrated many of the
stories, watched how their teach-
er and classroom assistant sliced
fruits into equal parts and best
of all they got to sample some of
the slices of fruits. The lesson was
extended to include graphing as
the students plotted their favorite
fruit. It was a fun and creative way
to learn about fractions.

Farm Bureau members march on Capitol


WASHINGTON , D.C.-More
than 80 Florida Farm Bureau (FFB)
members on May 13 marched up
Capitol Hill and laid their farm la-
bor woes at Congress' steps.
Carrying a sign that said,
"Don't Tie Our Hands," and with
hands bound with green yarn to
symbolize how current immigra-
tion law and temporary worker
programs hinder agricultural
production, the Florida farmers
said comprehensive immigration
reform is the only real solution to
their labor problems.
Comprehensive reform usual-
ly refers to legislation that creates
legal avenues for people to enter
the United States , enables those
who are already here to earn legal
status and improves security at
the U.S. borders. For agriculture,
it also includes an improved agri-
cultural guest worker program.


Congress has not acted on im-
migration reform in more than
two decades, and reform is long
overdue, the FFB members said.
They called for Congress to pass
comprehensive reform this year.
After the demonstration, they
fanned out for meetings with
members of Congress on immi-
gration and other issues. Farm
Bureau members had made ap-
pointments to meet with Florida
members of Congress or their
staff liaisons as part of the group's
annual "Field to the Hill" visit.
"We are here in the nation's
capital to say that Congress must
take action or else our hands as
the nation's food producers are
tied," said John L. Hoblick, FFB
president. "If farmers don't have
a system for hiring the labor we
need, when we need it, at a fair
market wage for the type of work


that these workers do, then we
may lose fruit and vegetable pro-
duction in Florida and the U.S. "
Many of Florida 's most prof-
itable crops include, fresh fruits,
vegetables, flowers and nursery
products, products that need to
be hand harvested. But finding
U.S. workers who are willing to
do the work is harder than ever,
and many farmers turn to work-
ers from across the border to
meet their labor needs.
That has presented several
problems, from not being able to
verify the workers' legal immigra-
tion status, to not getting tempo-
rary workers when they are need-
ed, to federal wage requirements
that are out of whack with typical
agricultural wages.
The American Farm Bureau
Federation says billions of dollars
worth of U.S. agricultural produc-


tion, mostly in fresh fruits and veg-
etables, are at stake if Congress
does not pass comprehensive im-
migration reform and provide an
effective agricultural guest worker
program.
"That means job losses, not
only in agriculture but also in oth-
er industries that are connected
with agriculture," said Hoblick.
"Congress must address this eco-
nomic issue."
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville , the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization. More informa-
tion about Florida Farm Bureau
is available on the organization's
website, http://FloridaFarmBu-
reau.org.


Folk Festival Features Ranching Traditions


TALLAHASSEE-Cowboy po-
etry, saddle making, cow whip
plaiting, roping, branding, saddle
bronc riding, country music and
swamp cabbage are among the
Florida cattle ranching traditions
that will be featured at the Folklife
Area of the Florida Folk Festival
on Saturday, May-24 and Sunday,
May 25, in White Springs.
The Folklife Area is organized
and implemented by the Florida
Folklife Program, Florida Divi-
sion of Historical Resources,
Department of State, in Tallahas-
see . Folklorists from the Florida
Folklife Program conduct annual
surveys to identify and document
folklife.
With the assistance of a grant
from the National Endowment for
the Arts, staff have documented
cattle ranching traditions through-
out Florida over the past year.
Cattle ranching began in Flor-
ida when Ponce de Leon, Pedro
Menendez de Aviles, and other
Spaniards introduced Andalusianr
criolla cattle in the 16th century.


Today more than one million
cattle graze on five million acres
of Florida pasture and woodland.
For years, Florida was the leading
beef producing state east of the
Mississippi River and today re-
mains in the top five.
On Saturday and Sunday, May
24 and 25, in the Folklife Area,
dozens of tradition bearers from
the statewide cattle ranching
community will present a rich
and diverse array of occupational
arts, foodways, verbal arts, and
music.
Festival goers will see Cracker
cows and horses descended from
the 16th livestock introduced by
the Spanish, as well as feisty Flor-
ida cow-dogs.
Cowboy artisans will demon-
strate spur making, saddle mak-
ing, whip making, and a variety of
leather creations.
Cowboy poets will delight and
amuse their audience with home-
spun-and often hilarious-verse
drawn from experience working
on the swampy range.


Toes will be tapping to the
country and western and Colom-
bian vallenato bands.
Chad Mills will prepare swamp
cabbage using his adaptation of
the recipe learned from his father,
Buddy Mills, in Okeechobee.
Folklorists will host narrative
stages where veteran cowmen
and women will recall adventures
on the swampy range.
Seminole cowboy Paul Bow-
ers will present the history of
Seminole cattle ranching, the sys-
tem of earmarks and brands used
by the Seminole Tribe, and the
cattle drive that he organizes as a
public celebration of their ranch-
ing heritage.
Cuban American cowboy Jos6
Carlos Martinez will demonstrate
roping, and invite the public to
participate in roping contests.
The Florida Folk Festival takes
place on May 23-25 at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State
Park in historic White Springs.
The Festival is sponsored by
the Florida Department of Envi-


ronmental Protection's Division
of Recreation and Parks as a cel-
ebration of Florida 's people and
heritage.
It features music performanc-
es, arts and crafts, a Festival Mar-
ket Place, a wide array of foods,
folklife demonstrations, storytell-
ing and living history.
The Stephen Foster Folk Cul-
ture Center State Park is located
on the banks of the beautiful Su-
wannee River.
Gates open daily at 8 a.m. at
the Stephen Foster Folk Culture
Center State Park on US 41, three
miles from 1-75 and nine miles
from 1-10, in White Springs.

Festival, visit www.FloridaFolk-
Festival.com.


Citrus Mutual urges President to sign.Farm Bill


LAKELAND-Florida Citrus Mu-
tual Executive VP/CEO Michael
W. Sparks Thursday urged Presi-
dent Bush to sign the Farm Bill
into law after both the U.S. House
and Senate passed the measure
- by veto-proof majorities.
"President Bush should sign
this bill which for the first time
ever recognizes the importance
of fruit and vegetables," Sparks
said. "This historic bill is good for
Florida citrus growers."
The bill, which passed in the
House by a 318-106 vote and the
Senate by an 81-15 vote, authoriz-


es almost $1.5 billion in manda-
tory spending for programs that
benefit fruit and vegetable grow-
ers. Florida is the second largest
producer of fruits and vegetables
in the U.S. and by far the largest
producer of citrus, a $9.3 billion
industry that creates 76,000 jobs.
"Citrus greening, a new dis-
ease that kills citrus trees, is
spreading throughout our indus-
try," Mr. Sparks said. "As a result,
the number one funding priority
for Florida citrus is pest and dis-.
ease research. The current Farm
Bill addresses the need for invest-


ment in research.
"On behalf of the 8,000 grower
members of Florida Citrus Mutu-
al, I would like to thank Congress-
men Tim Mahoney, Adam Put-
nam and Allen Boyd in the House
and Srnators Mel Martinez and
Bill Nelson in the Senate for their
hard work on this bill and their
support of Florida citrus."
Founded in 1948 and currently
representing nearly 8,000 grower
members, Florida Citrus Mutual is
the state's largest citrus growers
organization. For more informa-
tion, please visit www.flcitrusmu-

els in his life, including his par-
ents, aunts, and his ;r 1rj n..,i-er.
Maude Vereen. He doesn't forget
to mention at least three other
people who he holds in high re-
gard: Michael E. Jackson, the liai-
son/ombudsman for Palm Beach
County Commissioner Jess San-
tamaria, Linda Johnson, a South
Bay commissioner and commu-
nity activist and Cartheda Mann,
an English teacher at Glades Cen-
tral High School and the current
Glades Area NAACP President.
What all of the aforemen-
tioned individuals have in com-
mon is that they seek to make
a difference in the community,
Alonzo wants to at least follow in
their footsteps in the near future.
"In my ninth grade year, my
music teacher (Moranoe St. Hila-
rie) told me that I strive to leave
a legacy behind," Alonzo said.


"That impacted me a lot because
when he explained it to me, it let
me know that it's important to be
looked at in a positive light when
I decide to return to the commu-
nity."
A personal loss fuels
Alonzo's focus
February 19, 2007 was prob-
ably the toughest day for Alonzo
in his young life. On that day, his
mother, Valerie, died from natu-
ral causes. While he doesn't talk
much about how his mother's life
or how she passed away, Alonzo
does reveal that it was a life-
changing experience for him.
"I had never before experi-
enced the death of someone that
close to my immediate family,"
Alonzo said. "The circumstance
created a profound moment of
mourning in my life. However,
when I finally passed the stage of
mourning I began to realize that
the experience I witnessed un-
knowingly opened my eyes and


I began to view the world in an
entirely new way."
"I began to understand that
everyone is placed here for a pur-
pose and that every soul has been
ordained for one, or even many,
particular jobs," Alonzo contin-
ued. "The death of my mother
showed me that I do not have the
luxury of time and that the job in
which I was ordained to do must
and will be done."
Before the passing of his moth-
er, Alonzo said that he enjoyed
being active in a host of organi-
zations, including time served as
the president of the Glades Area
Youth Branch of the NAACP, the
assistant captain of the Glades
Central High School Marching
Band and a summer volunteer as
a choral director of Street Beat,
Inc., to name just a few activities.
Alonzo added that he loved being
active in school and in the com-
munity simply out of making a
difference in the lives of everyone
involved in the organizations he
was in.


But with his mother's death,
Alonzo said that he had done all
of this simply to pass time. Now,
whatever Alonzo does in his life
from this point on, he wants to
make sure that it has a purpose
behind it.
"During this hard time in my
life, when I really did not believe
there was any other thing to live
for, I received joy, happiness and
excitement from a Youth NAACP
Unit meeting," Alonzo said. "I
know that may seem a little silly
but having fun at a point in my life
when joy had seemed to escape
me was a really big deal."
"I began to notice that it was
more than a sense of joy but one
of purpose and passion that was
boiling inside of me and find-
ing an exit through the Youth
NAACP," Alonzo continued. "I be-
gan to put the links together and
noticed that it went deeper than
the NAACP and its mission. It was
more specific."
Alonzo's burning desire for
fulfilling a purpose had much to


do with the state of municipal
government at the time and what
he would like to do to make a dif-
ference in that arena.
"My passion was rising from
my suppressed anger at how the
city of Belle Glade was being led
at the time - without integrity,"
Alonzo said. "This was the point
in my life when I found my pur-
pose."
Alonzo's future plans
What Alonzo wants to do is
become the mayor of Belle Glade
when he returns to the area. He
would like for the city to have a
host of thriving businesses, cultur-
al outlets and entertainment avail-
able to its residents someday.
"We need these things so we
actually have something to do
here," Alonzo said.,
Alonzo said that he would
like to make a few other nota-
ble changes in the community,
though he did not disclose details
at this time.


Ultimately, Alonzo would like
to make his mother proud by
making the area the best way
he possibly can. Alonzo's sister,
Tiffany Campbell, is especially
proud of what he's done to this
point and the effect he has had
on his family.
"Ever since Alonzo was a little
kid, I knew something was spe-
cial about him," Tiffany said. "He
.never gave our mom any prob-
lems and he was always involved
in things normal kids wouldn't
think about doing."
"Alonzo has done great despite
the untimely death of out moth-
er," Tiffany continued. "There's
no doubt in my mind that he will
be known for the great man he is.
Our mother is smiling from heav-
en saying, 'I raised a fine young
man. Son, well done,'"

Continued From Page 1

The binding agreement
between Belle Glade
and South Bay
According to Lomax Harelle,
South Bay's city manager, an old
wastewater treatment plant was
in operation until after deteriorat-
ing for years, it came to a point
that the wastewater plant would
cease to exist in 2005.
City officials claim that the pri-
mary cause of the now-defunct
wastewater plant was the lack
of regular maintenance to it over
time. That in itself was perhaps
the reason South Bay was obli-
gated to find an alternative waste-
water treatment facility.
As the city of Belle Glade was
aware of the city of South Bay's
serious condition, it lent a helping
hand to South Bay by allowing its
neighboring city to connect to its
own wastewater treatment plant.
A contract agreement between
the two cities took place on July


6, 2005.
According to th
agreement, the cit

"We owe -the money to Belle
Glade, but the way it's set up right

emorandum Harelle said.

outstanding Bay is struggling financially, gov-
$876,790.39. ernment officials met with repre-
f South Bay sentatives of the city of Belle.Glade
ice, as ac- to consider flexibility possibilities,


which include an extension for
the debt payments.
"We all came to a clear tinder-
standing that South Bay owes- us
money," said Steve B. Wilson, the
mayor of Belle Glade. "The only
question we have here is what
the actual amount is. The num-
bers are not accurate, so we'll
brainstorm with the city of South
Bay to make sure that the two
cities resolve their differences as
soon as possible."
Possible solutions
Mr. Harelle addressed to gov-
ernment officials last Tuesday
that South Bay is in dire need of
having a new wastewater treat-
ment plant. He believes that not
only would it eliminate the need
for South Bay to use Belle Glade's
wastewater treatment plant, but it
would attract business develop-
ment and activity for South Bay,
thus increasing the city's revenue
and tax base.
But as South Bay officials lob-
bied to government officials for a
new wastewater treatment plant,
Priscilla Taylor of the Florida
House of Representatives pointed


out the cause of the old waste-
water treatment plant's deteriora-
tion, which drew her concern.
"If you had a plant and it didn't
work, what would make a differ-
ence if you get a new one?" Rep-
resentative Taylor asked.
"We would all monitor the
system to make sure this doesn't
happen again," answered Shir-
ley Walker-Turner, the mayor of
South Bay.
After being asked by govern-
ment officials how long it would
take for a new wastewater treat-
ment to be built, Mr. Harelle re-
sponded by saying the timeframe
would be anywhere from 12 to 18
months.
Todd J. Bonlarron, the leg-
islative affairs director for Palm
Beach County, suggested a short-
term fix to be put in place regard-
ing the situation. The plan would
include South Bay verifying its
debt to Belle Glade, then finding
short-term resources that may be
available in funding from the state
and federal government.
The funding, which govern-
ment officials are beginning to
look for, would assist South Bay
in meeting its debt obligations to


Belle Glade.
"This could rise to some seri-
ous health concerns," Mr. Bonlar-
ron said. "I don't think anyone
wants it to get to that point."
David Goldenberg, chief of staff
for Congressman Alcee Hastings,
agreed with the sentiment, add-
ing that backed up sewage and
human waste could contaminate
soil, which has the potential to get
into the city's drinking water.
Officials from both cities will
be meeting again with govern-
ment officials today at the Palm
Beach County Water Utilities De-
partment facility in Wellington to
further discuss solutions to this
impending issue regarding the
wastewater treatment plant.
"Our goal is to work with the
two cities and everyone else who
has a stake in this issue," Mr. Gold-
enberg said. "Turning the waste-
water treatment plant off in Soutfi
Bay is not a viable option. The risk
to public health is too great and
we are all working to avoid that
from happening."
