Lack of events this
year was something
to forget

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE- "We've let our
patriotism go by the waistside,"
said Larry Wright, who is a Unit-
ed States Army veteran.
It's generally the sentiment
that was felt throughout the.
close-knit city on Monday, May


26.
Mr. Wright, who served in
the 82nd Airborne Division and
fought in the Dominican Re-
public Revolution of 1965, did
not envision that no flags would
even be posted up on this special
holiday. The emotions for him
on Memorial .Day was some-
what disappointed and confused
at the same time.
"It just bothers me because
we have women and men
around the world that are help-
ing to keep us free," Mr. Wright


said. "Last year, we were able to
put up flags at the major roads
in town. But for this year, I don't
know why it didn't continue."
"I'm not* complaining," Mr.
Wright continued. "But we need
to make sure that our communi-
ty is represented with a show of
lags that represent the greatness
of our country.
Mr. Wright, here's why.
According to Diane Walker,
a Pahokee city commissioner,
city representatives had recently
informed her that the problem

On May 20, the night of tihe graduation ceremony, Mr. Ariel Alejo, the school's princi-

Towards the conclusion of the May 20 Pahokee High School graduation ceremony, the

this year was proper equipment
wasn't in place to install them.
Commissioner Walker point-
edly refers the issue to the lack
of clamps to hold the devices at
over 50 telephone poles through-
out the city.
Flags are usually placed at the
mounted metal stands by the
poles, with the devices located at
various points on Bacom Point
Road, South Lake Avenue, East
Main Street and Rardin Avenue.
"When the hurricanes came


a few years ago, a lot of posts
were damaged and they were re-
placed," Commissioner Walker
said. "Once that happened, the
posts didn't have the same type
of security to properly hang the
flags."
Interestingly, however, it's the
first time that no flags had been
placed on the posts for Memorial
Day, according to Alvis Davis, a
community activist.
City officials claim that due to
budgetary constraints, the flag

Two men shot

Two men shot in
rear of apartment
complex

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Lately, there
seems to be an alarming trend
of early morning shootings in
the area.
It's a major cause of con-
cern, especially if individuals
are just hanging out near their
residences.
On Saturday, May 24 at 2:17
a.m., two men suffered that po-
tentially fatal experience.
. According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
Jamie Fuentes, 32, of 616 Cov-
enant Dr., Apt. B and Guaden-


cio Trejo Vazquez, 35, of 116 S.
Main St., Apt. 6 were reportedly
shot by an unidentified man
after hanging out in the rear of
the apartment complex, where
Mr. Vazquez resides at.
Officials said that both men
were approached by the man
for unknown reasons, with the
suspect subsequently fleeing
the scene by foot.
Mr. Vasquez was reportedly
shot in the facial area and Mr.
Fuentes was shot in the back.
Both victims were air lifted to
the Delray Community Hospital
for observations.
It is not known at this time
whether or not the injuries ap- -
pear to be life-threatening.

When you think you're get-
ting away with committing an
illegal act, it could eventually
catch up with you.
According to the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office,
one woman had done just that.
The sheriff's office said that a
female suspect is wanted for
cashing two forged checks to-
taling over $10,000 at National
City Bank on 800 S. Main St. in
Belle Glade. The bank was for-
merly known as Fidelity Federal


Bank. Representatives at the
Belle Glade branch said they
don't know who the woman is.
In fact, they didn't even know
that the act had occurred un-
til the sheriff's office notified
them of the incident.
The two checks were re-
portedly forged on January 2
and January 4, 2007, according
to the sheriff's office. Teri Bar-
bera, the spokesperson for the
sheriff's office, is urging anyone
who can identify the woman to
contact Detective Michael Fer-
rante at 688-4077.

Shooting causes lockdown


Nearby schools

The Sun
BELLE GLADE - A scary
situation took place in the af-
ternoon hours of Wednesday,
May21.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
a call was received from a
woman indicating a shooting
which took place at 516 Palm
Dale Drive.
Deputies had reportedly re-
sponded to the residence and


discovered that a 17-year-old
female suffered two gunshot
wounds to her left leg and ab-
domen.
It was revealed that the
caller was the sister of Sharell
Lakita McFarlene, the victim in
the shooting.
According to Teri Barbera,
the spokesperson for the sher-
iff's office,
The victim's sister told the
PBSO that she was locked in
her room by her boyfriend.
During the call shots were re-
portedly fired inside the room.
"The boyfriend was observed
forcing McFarlene into the
room and holding a small
caliber handgun," Ms. Barbera


said. "The boyfriend was seen
running from the residence on
video and by two witnesses."
Officials said that the victim
was later airlifted to a nearby
trauma center, where it was
revealed that the injuries sus-
tained do not appear to be life-
threatening.
The suspect was described
by the sheriff's office as a black
male with dreadlocks. He was
reportedly last seen wearing
dark clothing as he fled the area
on foot.
Deputies had set up a pe-
rimeter in attempts to conduct
a search of the suspect, but

The trio of Erin McCarthy, Deneva Williams and Micaela Cay-

for the Class of 2008 graduates, as they have reached an im-

Attorney General announces action against Verizon


TALLAHASSEE-Florida At-
torney General Bill McCollum,
Florida Public Counsel J.R. Kelly,
:and Mike Twomey, an attorney
representing AARP, announced
.recently that they have asked the
Florida Public Service Commis-
sion (FPSC) to fine'Verizon Florida
LLC $6.5 million for repeated vio-
lations of service rules in Florida
during 2007.
The petition filed by the Attor-
ney General, Public Counsel, and
AARP states that Verizon willfully
violated the Florida Public Service
;Commission's rules for telecom-
,munications service repairs 262
times during 2007.
The petition asks the Commis-
,sion to establish a docket to in-
vestigate Verizon's service quality,
.and requests that the company be
"required to show why it should
,not be required to pay the maxi-


TALLAHASSEE-A greater per-
centage of Florida third-graders

*compared to last year according
,to the 2008 Third Grade Florida
Comprehensive Assessment Test
(FCAT) results released. The re-
sults also indicate that African-
,American third-grade students
-narrowed the achievement gap
'with non-minority students in
,both subjects, and Hispanic third-
,graders narrowed the achieve-
ment gap in mathematics.
"I congratulate Florida's third
grade students for performing at
"or above grade level in the FCAT
.reading and mathematics tests,"
said Governor Charlie Crist.
�"These results demonstrate the
good work of our teachers in the
classroom and the commitment

,Highlights of this year's results
include:
72 percent of third-grade stu-
idents are reading at or above

mum allowable fine of $6.5 mil-
lion for the 2007 violations.
"We expect Florida companies
that are regulated by the Florida
Public Service Commission on
behalf of Florida consumers to
comply with the rules of the Com-
mission," said Attorney General
McCollum in filing the petition.
The FPSC rules that the com-
pany has violated require that no
less that 95 percent of the reports
of service outages be restored
within 24 hours and that no less
than 95 percent of other trouble
reports be fixed within 72 hours.
The petition points to contin-
ued deterioration of Verizon's
repair performance since the last
investigation of its service.
That investigation resulted in
a $2 million settlement in 2001
involving Verizon, the Attorney
General and the Public Counsel.


76 percent of third-grade stu-
dents are performing mathemat-
ics at or above grade level; up two
percentage points from last year.
African-American third-grad-
ers narrowed the achievement
gap with White students by one
percentage point in reading and
two percentage points in math-
ematics.
Hispahic third-graders nar-
rowed the achievement gap with
White students by one percent-
age point in mathematics.
"This year's third grade reading
and math scores speak volumes
for the excellent work occurring
in classrooms throughout Florida
," said Education Commissioner
Eric J. Smith. "I'm particularly
proud of our teachers, who con-
tinue to excel in their efforts to
prepare our students for a lifetime
of success."

day, May 23, parents may view

The petition filed today shows a
steady decline in Verizon's repair
performance since 2002.
In that year, the company re-

reported in 2007, which repre-
sents the worst performance of
any year since 2001.
"Our request that Verizon be

said Megan Greenleaf, a third
grade teacher at Edward A. Up-

Florida's rivers, lakes and estuar-
ies. In the Everglades alone, the
District performs more water
quality sampling than is conduct-
ed by 48 U.S. states across their
entire coverage areas.
The District laboratory per-
forms 170,000 water, sediment
and fish tissue analyses a year. An
additional 110,000 tests are sent to
laboratories outside the District.
About 35 percent of that work is
sent to the DEP laboratory.
"DEP .has developed a niche
specialty to detect extremely low
levels of herbicides, pesticides,
and mercury," said David Struve,
director of the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District's Water
Quality Analysis Division. "To do
that here, the District would have
to purchase expensive, duplicate
equipment that would not be uti-
lized full time.
"Our niche has become mea-
suring extremely low levels of
phosphorus, so we do all the low-
level phosphorus work in South
Florida; DEP does all the low-
level organic and mercury work,"
Struve explained. "This allows us
to optimize state resources and
produce the highest-quality re-
sults at the end of the day."

New Sugar Policy Becomes Law


Sugar Producers
Urge Prompt
Implementation

WASHINGTON-Sugar pro-
ducers applauded this week as the
Senate and House of Representa-
tives voted overwhelmingly to
override President George Bush's
Farm Bill veto. After the vote, the
new sugar policy in the Farm Bill
officially became law.
'... Today is a great day not just
-for farmers, but for all of Ameri-
ca," said Alan Welp, a farmer from
Wray, Colorado and the president


of the American Sugarbeet Grow-
ers Association. "We thank Con-
gress for passing a law that pro-
vides funding to feed our nation's
poor, enhances support for con-
servation, helps wean America
off of foreign oil, and ensures that
U.S. farmers will be around to put
food on this country's tables."
But according to Welp, sugar
farmers aren't celebrating. "The
new sugar policy still needs to be
implemented, and it's our hope
that implementation, will , take
place promptly because, we're
really struggling right nodw," he-
noted.


Unlike other crops, sugar pric-
es are slumping-a problem that
is further compounded by sugar
producers' rising input costs.
The new law is designed to
help alleviate this pressure. The
Farm Bill maintains the existing
sugar policy and enhances it with
an ethanol provision and a small
rate increase on loans that sugar
producers repay to the govern-
ment with interest.
Rick Roth, a Florida sugar
,farmer and board member of the
Sugar Cane Grow% ers Cooperative
of Florida, says the, current eco-
rnomic .situation is so dire that


producers are considering forfeit-
ing on government loans, which
could cost taxpayers millions.
"Possible forfeitures are a di-
rect result of too much subsidized
foreign sugar being let onto our
market through trade deals," he
explained. "It is our hope that the
USDA will take the actions neces-
sary to avoid forfeitures now and
in the future."
Because of a procedural glitch,
the trade title of the Farm Bill has
not yet become law, but is ex-
pected to after Congress returns
from its Memorial Day break.


Survey shows high economic illiteracy


Focus should be put
on personal finance
issues

WASHINGTON, D.C.-The Cen-
ter for Economic and Entrepre-
neurial Literacy
(CEEL) released a public ser-
vice announcement (PSA) along
with a new survey that both un-
derscore the need for increased
education on personal finance
and economic issues.
The national survey conducted
this month shows that an over-
whelming number of Americans
are unable to answer even the
most basic questions about bor-
rowing and interest rates.

Startling highlights from the
survey include:

*69% of respondents do NOT
know that you have to pay both
the interest on your entire balance
as well as a late fee when making
a late credit card payment;

*97% of respondents can NOT
identify the percentage that ser-
vice fees typically take out of a
$20 ATM withdrawal.
-Over 90% either didn't know


how much the fee would be or
thought it was less than it really
is.

*Nearly 70% of respondents
did NOT identify "FICO score" as
the most important factor in ob-
taining a home loan, when asked
to choose from a list of four fac-
tors;

*Only 16% of respondents
knew that you can withdraw
money from a Roth IRA for edu-
cation expenses, your first home
purchase, and retirement spend-
ing.

In order to highlight this prob-
lem, CEEL's public service an-
nouncement will be distributed
to over 1000 local television chan-
nels across the country.
The PSA features three chil-
dren discussing what their loan
options would be when purchas-
ing a doll house.
The ad illustrates how confus-
ing getting a mortgage can be
especially for those who haven't
been educated on the subject
matter.
You can view the ad http://
econ4u.org/.
"When so many Americans
are unable to answer the most
basic questions about personal


finance and debt, it is clear that
economic illiteracy is a problem
that needs to be corrected in this
country," said Kristen Lopez East-
lick, senior economic analyst for
the Center for Economic and En-
trepreneurial Literacy.

tona Beach, Fla., to mother Sylvia
Matison of Daytona Beach, Fla.,
and father (deceased) Charlie L.
Ford, Jr., on September 16, 1981.
Charliene's childhood was
spent partly in Daytona Beach
where she attended the Montes-
sori Pre-school. However, the
vast majority of her rearing was
in Moore Haven, Fla., where she
attended Moore Haven Elemen-
tary and Moore Haven Jr. - Sr.

high school in the year of 2000.
Upon graduation she further ad-
vanced her education by attend-
ing Florida Community College of

Community College, International
University, and Southwest Florida
College of Fort Myers, Fla.
Charliene's Work history was
varied but she mainly worked as
a CNA. In September 2007, Char-
liene's physical condition would
no longer allow her to attend col-
lege or work.

opened to receive another saint

Insurance community offers storm tips


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Association of Insurance and Fi-
nancial Advisors (FAIFA) released
its list of homeowners' insurance
pplicyholder tips to prepare for a
hurricane and tips on what to do
after a storm passes. FAIFA also
provided its number one safety
tip for Floridians caught in a hur-
ricane ravaged zone.
"The time to prepare yourself,
your home and your family for a
hurricane is not when a storm is
predicted or on the horizon," said
FAIFA spokesman Bob Lotane.
"Floridians need to develop an
on-guard attitude, and be pre-
pared throughout hurricane sea-
son. We have been blessed with
no hurricanes the last two sea-
sons, but the 2004 - 2005 seasons
taught us that the entire state is
vulnerable."
FAIFA released 15 tips on what
to do to prepare for a hurricane
and what to do in its aftermath if
property is damaged. It also pro-
vided valuable links to weather,
insurance and governmental
entities that may be useful as a
hurricane approaches or after it
passes.
FAIFA also reminded Floridians
that the majority of storm casual-
ties occur after hurricanes pass
and do not result from the actual
storm. Many of these deaths and
injuries are the result of flooded
areas and people attempting to
travel through them. The depth
or current of these waters are of-
ten impossible to gauge, and live
electrical wires may -have fallen
into the water. That is why FAIFA's
number one hurricane safety tip
is turn around, don't drown (We
have to give former Gov. Jeb Bush
credit on this one, but it's so im-
portant we want to keep it out


there). Also, keep children away
from flooded areas and stand-
ing water after the storm passes.
FAIFA Policyholder Tips
What to do before and after a
storm hits
FAIFA recognizes that having
your property damaged can be a
very stressful time, and we want
to help get your home and your
life back to normal as soon as'
possible.
Preparations taken before a
hurricane damages your property
and actions taken in the wake of
a storm can make recovery faster,
easier and can guarantee you re-
cover the maximum amount for
your loss. Here are some valuable
tips on how to deal with catastro-
phe and non-catastrophe prop-
erty losses.
Before hurricane season or be-
fore a storm hits:
* Make an itemized inven-
tory of your belongings, including
costs, purchase dates and serial
numbers. Attach receipts to the
inventory sheet. Consider taking
dated photographs or videotapes
of your possessions.
* You may have made prop-
erty improvements or purchased
expensive items. Review your
insurance policy and check your
coverage limits. Consider increas-
ing your coverage if your policy
doesn't cover the current value
of your home and -its contents.
Your agent can help you establish
proper coverages.
* Write down the name of
your insurance company, policy
number and telephone number
to report your claim. Keep it in
a secure, dry place along with a
credit card with at least $1,000
available. Take these with you if
you evacuate and withdraw cash


before disaster hits - ATMs may
not be working. Pay any bills that
may become due in case services
are interrupted or you have to
evacuate for an extended period.
* Consider purchasing flood
coverage from the National Flood
Insurance Program, as standard
homeowners policies do not
cover flood damage. Your agent
should be able to write a flood
policy, but it takes 30 days to be-
come effective. Do not wait until
a storm is on the horizon- that is
too late.
*. Purchase items you may.
need if in the wake of a storm
such as battery powered radios
and flashlights (and batteries for
them), and a generator. Have
enough non-perishable food and
bottled water to survive for at least
a few days. These items could be
difficult if not impossible to obtain
in the wake of a hurricane.
After the storm passes, if you
sustain property damage you
should:
* Keep materials such as ply-
wood and plastic on hand in case
you need to make temporary re-
pairs after a storm.
* Never use a generator in-
doors or in any enclosed area
including a garage, carport or
sunroom.
* Avoid using candles and
never use a candle or lantern near
a generator or stored fuel.
* Make emergency repairs
to protect property from further
damage. Document. the damage
and repairs in writing with receipts
and photo so that your insurance
company can reimburse you.
* Immediately report property
damage to your insurance agent
and company.
* Once you are assigned a


claim number, keep it on hand at
all times. You will need it to com-
municate with your insurer or
agent about your claim.
* Maintain copies of your
household inventory and other
documentation including photos.
This will assist the adjuster in as-
sessing the value of any damaged
property. Do not dispose of dam-
aged or destroyed property during
initial cleanup. Save it until your
claim is adjusted.

* Take precautions to protect
property if the damage requires
you to leave your home. Let your
agent or insurance company
know your temporary forwarding
address and phone number.

* Beware of fly-by-night repair
businesses. Hire licensed and rep-
utable service people. Check with
the Florida Department of Busi-
ness and Professional Regulation
to make sure they are licensed.

Glades Day School offers camp in June


A variety of fun-filled
activities will be of-
fered

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Let the sum-
mer fun begin, kids.
With school almost out, the
youth will soon need something
to do that's positively constructive
and stress-free.
Well, for three weeks in June,
Glades Day School will have a va-
riety of fun-filled camps available
for children from 4 to 15 years
old.
Accordingto Mike Underwood,
a coach at Glades Day School, the
camps will be set up in three dif-
ferent blocks. In the first week,
which is from Monday, June 2 to
Friday, June 6, Glades Day will be
hosting a football camp, while on
the second week (Monday, June 9
to Friday, June 13), the school will
be operating a baseball camp.
The conclusion of the three-
week camp series (June 16-20)
will " feature all sports games,
which is dubbed 'Fun Week'.
Going into its third year of


operation, Underwood hopes to
have at least 70 children signed
up for all three weekly camps.
"First thing we try to do here
is have fun, that's our main goal,"
Underwood said. "We'll be trying
to teach the fundamentals of each
game by going through each' po-
sition, teaching them how to play
it correctly."
In the football camp, there will
be two different age groups work-
ing together on a variety of drills
- the younger group will be from
4 to 8 years old, while the older
group will be from 9 to 15 years
old. The timeframe of the football
camp will be from 9 a.m. until
noon.
Each group will be participat-
ing in a set of kicking, passing and
running contests and drills. Also,
in addition to learning the rules
of the sport, participants will be
taught how to run proper patterns
and catch passes effectively.
The groups will be playing a
regular game each day as. they
'will learn a variety of game situ-
ations. Underwood notes that the
football camp, as well as the oth-
ers, will involve no contact what-
soever.
In the baseball camp, the two


age groups will be paired up just
like in football, but the times will
be different for-each group. The'
4 to 8-year-old group will be in
camp from 9 a.m. until noon,
while the 9 to 15-year-old group
will be participating from 1 p.m.
until 4 p.m.
Casey Underwood, a baseball
coach from Snead State College
in Alabama, will be operating the
week-long baseball camp with
his father, who is the camp series
coordinator.
Participants will be learning
baseball fundamentals such as
hitting, catching, throwing, pitch-
ing, base running and sliding. For
example, in a game situation, the
youth will be taught when to run
the bases and when not to.
Just like in the football camp,
regular games will be played each
day.
' "We don't want to put any
stress on our kids throughout the
camp," the camp series coordina-
tor said. "We just want them to
enjoy playing these sports."
In the third and final week,
the 'fun camp' will be held in
the school 'gymnasium, where
a variety of sports will be avail-
able, including basketball, indoor


kickball, indoor tee-ball and relay
races, to name a few,
The final segment of the camp
series will be available for chil-
dren from 4 to 14 years old, with
the timeframe being from 9 a.m.
until noon.
"Everyday will be something
new for the kids at the fun camp,"
Underwood said.
In each of the three camps,
participants will be given tee-
shirts. At the end of each camp, a
variety of camper awards will be
presented to the youth from each
age group.
"This camp just gives the kids
something to do for the summer,"
said Pete Walker, the head foot-
ball coach for Glades Day. "We're
looking for the kids to be excited
about it."
For more information, parents
can either call Glades Day School
at 996-6769 or contact Mike Un-
derwood at 996-3825 after 5 p,m.
Those interested can also come
to the Glades Day School and pick
up an application. The school is
located on 400 Gator Boulevard in
Belle Glade.

Ten year old boy accused of cane fire burning


An arrest is
imminent, officials
say

Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - Playing with fire is
a dangerous act which can have
serious implications for those in-
volved.


It's especially telling when the
subject of such an incident is a
child.
A maiden cane field estimated
at approximately three acres was
reportedly burned in the area on
Monday; May 12.
According to Michael Arena,
the district battalion chief of the
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue,
the location of the fire took place
between a house, a junkyard and
train track near the area of North


86th Street and North 87th Place.
It was revealed by the fire res-
cue that a 10-year-old ,boy from
Belle Glade has been accused of
the incident, which had occurred
at about 3:50 p.m. ,
"When we got there, we were
notified that there was possibly
some suspicious activity in the
area," Chief Arena. "After that, we
had an investigator dispatched to
the scene."
It is -not known at this time


what caused the boy to commit
such an act.
Officials said that an arrest is
imminent as this incident is cur-
rently under investigation by the
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue
Investigations Bureau.

Poll to show complacency in hurricane preparedness


MIAMI - The 2008 hurricane
season begins June 1st. Despite
devastating hurricane seasons in
2004 and 2005, a startling national
survey will show a dangerously
high percentage of residents in
hurricane-vulnerable states still
are not adequately informed or
prepared to protect their families
and homes.
The survey results will be re-
leased at a news conference at
the National Hurricane Center in
Miami, Florida, on Thursday, May
29, which also will serve as the
nationwide launch of the Nation-
al Hurricane Survival Initiative,
an educational campaign to pro-
mote vital hurricane awareness
and preparedness.
National Hurricane Survival
Initiative - a public education


and safety outreach partnership
that includes the National Hurri-
cane Center, FEMA, The National
Emergency Management Asso-
ciation and The Salvation Army.
Corporate partners in the project
include Plylox and Travelers.
The National Hurricane Surviv-
al Initiative produces a 30-minute
television program, "Hurricane
Survival 2008," which will be
broadcast throughout hurricane
season on more than 50 televi-
sion and cable network affiliates
from Texas to Maine.

Proclamation by the President


National Hurricane Prepared-
ness Week highlights the vital im-
portance of being prepared when
natural disasters strike.
Tropical storms can cause
destruction over entire regions
and claim the lives of many of
our citizens. We can help reduce
vulnerability in our communities
by encouraging all citizens to be
prepared and to work together.
Maintaining emergency supply
kits and family communication
plans, and knowing what to do in
an emergency can help save lives.
For more information on hur-
ricane preparedness, Americans
can visit ready.gov and fema.gov
to find checklists and other valu-
able resources to help them get
prepared.
My Administration continues
to support efforts to strengthen
how Americans prepare for and
respond to disasters. The Nation-


al Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration works to predict and
track storms so that citizens are
more aware of potential storms.
The Department of Homeland Se-
curity's Federal Emergency Man-
agement Agency (FEMA) has im-
proved communication between
Federal, State, local government,
and the private sector in order to
help citizens stay informed and
receive the help they need. By
working together, we can better
prepare for, respond to, and re-
cover from hurricanes and reduce
the harm to our citizens and our
communities.
As hurricane season approach-
es, we also express our gratitude
to the volunteers and first re-
sponders who help their fellow
citizens in their time of need.
Now, therefore, I, George W
Bush, President of the United
States of America, by virtue of


the authority vested in me by the
Constitution and the laws of the
United States, do hereby proclaim
May 25 through May 31, 2008, as
National Hurricane Preparedness
Week. I call upon government
agencies, private organizations,
schools, and the media to share
'information about hurricane pre-
paredness. I also urge all Ameri-
cans living in vulnerable coastal
areas to take appropriate mea-
sures and precautions to protect
themselves, their homes, and
their communities against the ef-
fects of hurricanes.
In witness whereof, I have
hereunto set my hand this twenty-
third day of May, in the year of our
Lord two thousand eight, and of
the Independence of the United
States of America the. two hun-
dred and thirty-second.
George W. Bush

Walking along and spying the Blue-Blue Pasture


A calm, serene view
into natural beauty
of Glades County
By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades Cty Democrat
After inching through the
bramble hedge row along the
old road, then climbing over the
fence along the south line head-
ing north, suddenly in view, there
was the pasture spread out in
striking hues of blue, every shade
from light lavender-blue to royal
purple-blue, all enhanced by the
endless blue above.
Nary a cloud floated in all that
cover of quiet blue stretching to
the edge of the world with Little
Blue squawking his way in and
out the flags.
At first those blue flags stood
straight and tall as if reaching for
the blue above, each one per-
fectly poised with its three petals
artistically arched while its center
spear stood straight and sturdy as
a steeple.
However, in seconds a wester-
ing wind came sweeping out of
the swamp across those green
acres, and those flags, one and
all hwepd in nne direction as if


they had been choreographed to
do so.
In another few seconds they
bounced back looking straight
up.
Up and down, down and up,
as the wind capriciously changed
directions as if it, too, were re-
sponding to a director's baton.
Heading for the barn by the
slough in a more or less round-
about sort of way to keep from.
tromping down the flags, the
slough, usually wet and dotted
with water cress and water lilies,
was a wandering ribbon of blue
running southerly through the
pasture.
Rhizomes of the flags had
found enough moisture last fall
to inch their way to and through
it, and now they were showing
off their first magnificent blooms,
strangely enough, a dramatically
different shade of robin-egg blue.
And the flags themselves were
considerably larger than their sib-
lings in the open pasture.
Little Blue was still squawking
with that raucous voice of his but
but somehow managing to keep
out of sight.
Standing stone still, I kept
thinking maybe he'd take me
for a cynres sshimn and move


in closer to the spot where I was
standing then I could get a better
look at him.
Pretty soon, however, it be-
came perfectly obvious what he
was trying to do.
A similar squawk-squawk
came from the far side of the
slough at which time those two
Little Blues made a beeline for
each other.
Not wanting to be an uninvited
guest at their Spring rendezvous, I
moved slowly away, leaving them
to their own private romance. Af-
ter all ...
Following the slough to the
edge of the swamp, the myriad
shades of blue
suddenly gave way to a long
edging of white flags that tucked
themselves
around the dark cypress knees.
The fresh new fern-like foliage of
the cypress
trees was the same gleaming
green as the ferns at their base, a
carpet so dense no sunlight could
penetrate between their fronds
and new fiddleheads.
Knowing how suddenly day-
light dies in the swamp, there was
nothing to do
but leave the flags to their own
devices for the dark of night. hon-

Road 833, Clewiston, Hendry County. The apphlicant'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 ofsulfur 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 V Air 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 Permit issuance action for a period of 14 (fourteen) days from the date of publication of this Public Notice. Writtelt 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. Aily written comments filed shall be made available for public inspection. If written 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.I
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 ofpublication of this Public Notice. Written comments must be post-marked and all facsimile comments
must be received by the close of business (5:00 pill), 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 Station #5510, Tallahassee, Florida

notice of the time, date, and location on the Department's official web site for notices at http://fawdos.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 notice 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 ofintent. Persons whose substantial interests will
be affected by any such final decision of the permitting authority on the applications) have thdie 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 aftei the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date of any Title V

Cotillion Ball held at Rosenwald Elementary


Elegant manners put
on display through
dance

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY - Making a posi-
tive first impression is generally a
step in the right direction.
The third grade students from
Rosenwald Elementary School
learned that firsthand at the Spring
Cotillion Ball, held on Thursday,
May 22 in the cafeteria.
For one thing, all of the stu-
dents present at the formal oc-
casion looked stunningly sharp
in their black and white attire.
The girls looked great in the
white dresses, white lace socks
and black shoes, while the boys
looked equally impressive with
their white shirts, black slacks,
black ties, black socks and black
shoes.
The parents of the third-grad-
ers who came to the event were

The third graders from Rosenwald Elementary School per-

lion Ball, held on Thursday, May 20 at the school's cafeteria.

treated to a well-choreographed
cotillion dance, which was direct-
ed by Sharoh Johnson, the cotil-


lion ball coordinator.
It's safe to say that everyone
was thoroughly impressed with


how the cotillion ball turned out,
to say the least.
"The students were eager
about the. cotillion ball because
they had never done this before,"
the cotillion ball coordinator said.
"It was a new style of dancing to
them and I thought they did a fan-
tastic job."
Dancing to Whitney Houston's
'Greatest Love of All', the students
displayed a sense of elegance
that showed throughout their
performance. They were able to
master a series of line dances and
classic dances, which concluded
with them receiving flowers from
Deborah Johnson, the school's
principal.
According to Ms. S. Johnson,
the purpose of the cotillion ball
was for the students to display
the elegant manners and social
skills learned during 10 hours of
etiquette, ethics and social dance
instructions. The cotillion ball
coordinator, also a third grade
teacher, considers these areas es-
sential for the future success of
the students. ,


"Being comfortable in a social
situation, whether it's at a formal
dinner or a dance, helps us make
that all-important first impres-
sion," Ms. S. Johnson said.
For two weeks prior to the
event, the students practiced the
dancing sequences in the morn-
ings and afternoons - mainly dur-
ing recess or after school. During
the focus-driven sessions, the
third-graders learned such danc-
ing fundamentals which included
teamwork, timing, coordination
and courtesies.
But not only did the students
learn the dance routines, they
learned a host of socials and for-
mal manners that is necessary for
success wherever they go in the
future. Honesty, integrity, excel-
lence and accountability were just
a few other important things that
the students were taught prior to
the cotillion ball event.
"We wanted to reach our chil-
dren as soon as that peer pressure
begins in their young tender lives,"
the third-grade teacher said. "It is
a lot of work, but it's so reward-


ing. It brought us so much joy to
be able to do this program."
Ms. S. Johnson seemed some-
what surprised about the over-
whelmingly positive reaction that
the event received from her fellow
third grade teachers, the students
and the parents.
But the principal wasn't, as she
announced that beginning next
year, the school would like for the
formal occasion to be available
to the third, fourth and fifth-grade
students,
"This cotillion is about show-
casing our kids at their best," the
school's principal said. "They've
learned about real-world situa-
tions and how to apply each situ-
ation they encounter. It's a culmi-
nation of everything our students
have learned this year."

Breakout stars emerge in Glades Central's victory
___ WEr - MIQ


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central's soon-to-be junior Antwon Chisolm began the opening drive with a 36-yard
catch from Leron Thomas, the soon-to-be junior quarterback. Chisolm finished with 52 total
yards in the game as he helped the Raiders pull out a 54-46 victory over the Miami Central
Rockets in the May 24 spring football game at Effie C. Grear Stadium.


Glades Day and
Moore Haven win big,
but Clewiston loses

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
S BELLE GLADE - It was, a re-
freshing, yet exciting spring foot-
ball game for Glades Central's
fans to watch.
In just a few words, the Raiders
offense was simply unstoppable.
In a 54-46 shootout victory
over Miami Central, there were a
,host of breakout stars who per-
+ formed well enough to .garner
national attention.
It's worth noting that repre-
sentatives from Rivals.com, the
nation's top football recruiting
website, and no fewer than 10
Division I colleges were on hand
to witness this epic contest, held
at Effie C. Grear Stadium on May
24.
Leron Thomas, the soon-to-be
junior quarterback, was nothing
short of impressive as he com-
pleted 15 of 22 passes for 344
yards and six touchdowns in the
game.
He also finished with six car-
ries for 64 yards, giving him an
overall total of 408 yards.
There were at least three
touchdown drives that defined
this soon-to-be national prospect.
For one thing, Thomas showed
everyone that he knows how to a
win a game for his team.


Tied at 46 with 3:43 left in the
contest, Thomas began the 70-
yard touchdown drive with a 13-
yard pass to Antonio McCloude, a
soon-to-be senior running back.
McCloude finished with 13 carries
for 119 yards and 132 overall.
Then, only three plays later
with just 1:19 left, Thomas aired
out .a beautifully thrown pass to
soon-to-be junior wide receiver
Fred Pickett - a 50-yard touch-
down catch that proved to be the
game-winner.
On that play, Pickett ran a fade
route with the Miami Central de-
fenders playing man-to-man cov-
erage - a favorable matchup for
Glades Central's offense.
"The defender tried to play
man-to-man on me and I broke
off the line," Pickett said of that
game-clinching play.
"He tried to push me out of
bounds, but I ran right past him.
L.J. (Leron) threw the ball and I
just jumped up and caught it."
After the catch, Pickett zoomed
straight to the end, eluding the de-
fender as he tried to make a div-
ing tackle.
Jessie Hester, Glades Central's
new head coach, could not have
been any more proud of the bud-
ding star.
"I watched L.J. (Leron) last
year and knew he had some po-
tential," Hester said of the young
quarterback.
"I told him to be confident
and don't take a back seat to any-
one."

fans: The Tigers will play their spring game on May 24 at

"L.J. sees what the rewards
can be if the hard work is put in,"
Hester continued. "He showed
tremendous poise and accuracy.
That's what you want out of quar-
terback."
What may have been Thomas'
best play of the game., however,
came on a game-tying 19-yard
Hail Mary touchdown pass to end
the first half, also to Pickett.
The halftime score was 26-26.
Amazingly, just about every-
one on the field, including Pickett,
had thought that the time had ran
out in the second quarter.
But, as a quarterback should
know, the play is not dead until
the whistle blows.
It looked as if Thomas might
have been sacked on the play, but
he somehow got out of the jam
and made that throw, which only
Pickett could catch.
"First of all, I thought the first
half was over, but when I stopped
running, I saw L.J. keep running,"
Pickett said.
"So, when I started back run-
ning, the ball went up in the air.
Once L.J. threw the ball, I knew I
could catch this."
Pickett, who finished with four
catches for 111 yards and three
touchdowns, was well-covered
by a Miami Central defender as
the ball went up but was some-
how able to break loose from him
and dive for the catch.
"That was the turning point of
the game because we tried to kill
the clock, but L.J. had the where-

withal to find the open man,"
Hester said.
"The rest of out team quit on
the play. Luckily, 'he was able to
stay up and make the play. It was
tremendous."
Rantavious Wooten, a highly-
recruited soon-to-be senior wide
receiver, also scored three touch-
downs, with four receptions for
,127 yards, while James West, a
soon-to-be senior tight end/wide
receiver, scored a receiving touch-
down on his own.
He finished with four recep-
tions for 61 yards.
Interestingly for West, he had
initially broke open for a 35-yard
touchdown pass from Thomas
with 40 seconds left in the third.
But the Raiders were charged
with a loss of a down and a five-
yard penalty due to what was
ruled an illegal forward pass by
the quarterback.
Nevertheless, on the very next
play, Thomas threw a 40-yard
touchdown to West, giving Glades
Central a 38-32 lead.
Unfortunately for Glades Cen-
tral, as potent as the offense was,
the defense showed that it has
some work to do, as its rushing
defense allowed an alarming six
touchdowns and 243 yards.
In all fairness, though, at least
two of its top defenders did not
suit up for the game due to inju-
ries.
The pass defense allowed just
one touchdown but gave up 225
yards in the air.
On a positive front, though,
the defensive backs came up big,
especially in the end when Byron
Blake caught a game-ending in-
terception after Miami Central
tried to tie the game at the end of
regulation.
Antwon Chisolm, a two-way
athlete who plays at running back
and defensive back, also caught
an interception.
Brandon Gainer, the Miami
Central soon-to-be junior running
back, rushed for 144 yards on 18
carries and scored four touch-
downs.
Though he was disappointed
with the Rockets' loss, he made a
telling prediction for Glades Cen-'
tral's season.
"Glades Central is a real good
team and they're tough," Gainer
said.
"They didn't really stop our of-
fense but our defense has some
mental mistakes, guys being ,at
the wrong place at the wrong
time."
"Glades Central should win
the state championship this year,"
Gainer boldly predicted.
Glades Day 21, American
Heritage-Plantation 3: The
Glades Day Gators proved in
their spring game that the run-
ning game may be a force to be
reckoned with. Brandon Dean, a
soon-to-be senior running back,
scored two touchdowns.
Cody Dionne, a fullback,
scored the other one. On the de-
fensive front, Ian Spence, a soon-
to-be sophomore, caught an in-
terception in the fourth quarter.
Jarrett Swaby, a soon-to-be
senior, also contributed big on
defense, recording 12 tackles in
the game.
The game was played on May
23 at Gator Field in Belle Glade.

The reality about Reality Television...


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's time to get real about Real-
ity TV. Is there anyone of us that
doesn't have a little bit of trouble
believing that all of the Survivor,
Fear Factor, Amazing Race, Bach-
elor/Bachelorette, Wife Swap, and
the many other programs that are
thrown out to us as Reality TV?
Get real! How many times
does our real life demand that
we immerse ourselves in a vat
of cockroaches or swallow really
disgusting parts of animals better
left un-described?
How many of us frequently
bungee jump down our office
building to get to work?
When is the last time a doz-
en GOQJVictoria's Secret suitors
begged for the chance to court
us?
In truth all these new real-
ity shows have no more basis in
reality than the old reality shows
- those that tried to convince us
that "Leave it to Beaver" or "The
Brady Bunch" were what Ameri-
can families were really like.
In both these new and old
reality shows - whether the casts
are professional actors or hand-
picked amateurs - the goal is to
depict a life that's more interest-
ing than our own, more exciting
than everyday, more rewarding
than we think is possible in our
work-a-day world.
In other words: If we want to
really live-it-up, we have to be-
come unreal.
We buy into this unreal reality

every time we buy up a batch of
short-cuts to fulfilled dreams.
If we can't live our dreams,
then we'll buy others' dreams in-
stead and pretend they're a dream
come true - and our dream.
Having said all of this, I have
been a fan of "The Biggest Los-
er."
The reality is that I will proba-
bly never take three to five months
out of my life and work out all day
everyday with a trainer and under
doctor supervision.
The reality also is that for a
significant change to take place,
a life-style change has to take
place.
The winners on "The Biggest
Loser" demonstrate that.
Those of us who know we
need to change something in
our lives are also aware of this,
but getting started on the lifestyle

weight loss of 134 pounds.

change and keeping to it is not
easy.
A year ago, God got into my
face and I was inspired to do
what I knew I had needed to do
for a long time to put His temple
in my body into better shape.
To date, I have lost about 134
pounds.
A number of people have
asked how I have done it, hoping
to cash in on my success. Oth-
ers have said, "I wish I could do
that."
Bottom line, I share with them
that there is no magic pill, no easy
diet, no shortcut.
It required a lifestyle change
and a complete change of eating
habits .and learning portion con-
trol.
It required changing from eat-
ing fast food on the go and late
night grazing to eating fresh fruits


and vegetables.
And of course there has to be
exercise.
It wasn't one thing, it was a
combination of many things. It
was a lifestyle change.
Even those who choose the
drastic measure of surgery have
to undergo a life-style change or
risk reverting back.
Have you ever given thought
to the fact that lifestyle changes
might be in order in our Christian
lives if we really want to be all We
can be and need to be?
Not everyone responds well to
the challenge of new life and new
lifestyle.
Some would rather stay in their
familiar rut than risk change, even
if it is change for the better.
Then there are the guardians
of the old reality, wardens of the
expected, and jailers of our junk
lifestyles all around us.
It's hard to get started but
now's the time for us to get real
- to live the real possibilities and
promises of a resurrected life
rather than the unrealities of the
dream life of Reality TV.
Our challenge is to let God's
resurrection life return life to our
life, and then to live the real life to
the glory of God and to the bless-
ing of our souls.

A funny word to use for gadua-

Graduation marks the end of

one word that is commonly used
about it is "commencement: - not
the ending, but the beginning of
the journey.
I have found that to be a better
description of what has happened
in my life; each time some part of
our lives seem to come.to an,end,
they become the first steps of a
new journey.
Our graduates are among the
fortunate ones.
I heard recently from one of
our county commissioners that
Hendry County has the highest
percentage in the State of Florida
of persons over age 25 who have
not completed high school-46
percent!
Our graduates are among the
fortunate ones; they have some-
thing that will open doors and set
them on a great journey if they
choose to travel the road that God
and life set before them.
I had someone tell me recently
that my "job" looked life "fun."
I answered that it could be
theirs too if they felt called to
serve, were willing to go to col-
lege and then seminary, and


would meet the requirements set
forth by the church they chose.
There was a changed expres-
sion on my listener's face and I
heard "Oh!"
It took a lot to get from here
to there; the trip wasn't ever easy,
but it was worth it.
My wish for our graduates is
that they find the journey where
God will lead them and stay the
course; that they may find a fulfill-
ing and enriching place in God's
world for others and themselves.
Many of your challenges are
different than ours were fifty years
ago when I graduated from high
school. . ..... -
We were becoming more and
more involved in a war in Asia, we
were finding it difficult to get into
college too, Sputnik had gone up
and we found ourselves involved
in a space race, the world was in
a "cold war" and divided into two
international powers that were
struggling to champion their ways
of life.
Two of my closest friends grad-
uated with me and we all began
college together.
One year later, we were all hav-
ing problems staying in school;
one went to work with a large
company, the other joined the
military and I worked to get my
grades up.
The journey of college was
different than high school; the
lessons of self-discipline and
study had to be learned by all


who thought they could "slide
through" college like they did in
high school.
College wasn't free either - it
meant working for the privilege
of going to school.
That meant doing without at
times, not having the free time
that used to be there, learning to
structure days and hours, grow-
ing up. .
What it took was different than
I first imagined; life had led me on
another journey than I thought I'd
be taking.
People have shared with me
their stories, not unlike my own,
about .finding things differently
than planned - but learning to
grow, learn, thrive because of it.
They have learned new things,
encountered new people, had
new experiences; all different than
ever planned or thought about as
the journeys of life were run.
At my recent high school re-
union, the fiftieth year since my
"commencement," we shared
and caught up after not seeing
each other for a long time.
One of my classmates headed
a construction company that
created some very famous'sky-
scrapers, another is noted for the
musical scores he has written
for Hollywood productions, an-
other was advisor to our military
leaders, another was responsible
for the guidance components of
some of our space shots, all had
contributed to the world God en-


trusts to us in one way or another;
by hard work and by traveling on
the journeys where we find our-
selves called.
The Lord called His. people
together as they were beginning
to move to their promised land
and after they had been given the
formation of His covenant with
them, and He tells them "What I
am command you is not too diffi-
cult for you or beyond your reach
(Deuteronomy 29:11)."
-He tells them "See, I set be-
fore you life and prosperity, death
and destruction (vs 15)" and then
tells His people "Now, choose life
(v.19)."
My hope is that those who
have graduated will choose life
too - choose it to the fullest, not
the easiest or journey with the
least difficult, but with the assur-
ance that God.is there with you.
He has been with all of the
past generations, and may you
never cease to search and learn
to overcome the challenges you
find.
May they represent to you a
way of hearing God and what He
and the world have to say.
The journey may seem long,
may seem difficult, and may ap-
pear beyond reach at times - God
is the bread for the journey that.
will nourish and sustain - choose
life - choose it for all it can be,
Amen.


Carefully selecting a presidential candidate


By Jackie Miller
Much has been said and more
will need to be said about the up-
coming U.S. Presidential election.
A black former legislator stated
she would vote for Obama be-
cause he is black.
If a white person had said he
voted for McCain because he
is white, that person would be
charged with racism.
Women have said they will
vote for Hillary because she is a
woman.
If a man said that he would
vote for someone because he is a
man, he would be called sexist.
In one state house a vote was
taken to protect the idea that
marriage is between a man and
a woman.
But someonewho said they be-
lieved marriage is only between a
man and a woman deserted their
promise to vote for the sanctity of
marriage and voted against the
proposal saying he had to be true
to his party.
Should the opposite happen
that person would be called a
bigot.
How sad that our country is of-


ten run on skin color, gender, or
party affiliation.
We need to look at the issues
and stand up for life, morality, and
right regardless of color or party
line.
We should not oppose a can-
didate because he is of a different
color than we are, neither should
he be favored.
When a person kills innocent
life, approves immoral unions,
and are untrue to promises they
made to us, they need to be re-
jected.as leaders.
We need to ask leaders why
they follow the party line rather
than moral truth!
We need statesmen and not
politicians. We need men like
Daniel in the Old Testament who
refused to compromise his prin-
ciples of divine truth although
he served in the cabinet of the
nations of Babylon, Persia and
Medes. (Read this short book and
see what integrity he possessed.)
When Daniel is referred to as
a man who "distinguished him-
self," this simply means he had
a spiritual framework or spiritual
reference point in which to oper-


ate.
It seems we never talk any
more about the character of the
candidate running for office. We
are so shallow and superficial
in America today that the only
thing that matters is does he play
a saxophone or guitar on the
campaign trail and does he give
me the warm fuzzies when he
speaks.
What about content, charac-
ter, wisdom, truth, or Godliness?
These are the traits and char-
acteristics that Daniel had and
that is why he excelled even in a
nation that was hostile at times to
the Jewish faith.
The only criticism Daniel's en-
emies could dig up on him what
that he was faithful to God.
What would happen today
if we had men and women run-
ning for public office whose only
criticism would be they loved the
Lord that much?
Or that they took their faith too
seriously?
The reality in post-modern
America is this: we now fault
a man or woman if they have a
practicing faith.


We now see people running
for office, when questioned about
their faith, plead the 5th.
Well, Daniel never compro-
mised his relationship with the
one who got him whefe he was
in his political career.
When a edict was passed by
the king that outlawed prayer in
the kingdom for 30 days, He still
went about his business prayiing
to his God as he did three times a
day in his window facing his be-
loved Jerusalem.
In other words, his value sys-
tem was not regulated by extenu-
ating circumstances.
His walk with God stayed the
same even though the environ-
ment around him became hos-
tile.
I love it when preachers and
government, leaders stand for
what is right regardless of what
public opinion polls state.
Daniel was consistent.
Let's pray that God will raise
up this kind of leader today.


'.Our future awaits, graduate! Your diploma unlocks nec
doors to success, and we encourage you to open them.
Pursue your goals and dreams, and we know
you'll achieve amazing things.

But Mr. Davis isn't buying that
claim.
"It's our responsibility to make
sure we have the money in our
budget to put the flags up for this
occasion," Mr. Davis said. "We
need donations from the public to
put up some new flags in celebra-

Army Corps of Engineers awards millions for Dike rehabilitation


JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - The
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District has awarded
$28.9 million to Bauer Founda-
tion Corp. of Clearwater, Fla., for
construction of a Herbert Hoover
Dike (HHD) Rehabilitation seep-
age cutoff wall in Martin and Palm
Beach counties.
The Corps awarded the task or-
der May 23, 2008. The construc-
tion near Sand Cut includes a 3.5-
mile long wall that runs from the
dike crest, through foundation, to
a depth of about 70 feet.
"I'm very happy with the prog-
ress we are making with the reha-
bilitation of Herbert Hoover Dike.
Each phase of rehabilitation is a


step forward in providing Lake
Okeechobee residents with more
protection than they had before,"
said Jacksonville District Com-
mander Col. Paul Grosskrug.er.
This is the second task order
awarded for the HHD cutoff wall,
but the first for Bauer. The Corps
sought the world's foremost cut-
off wall construction experts and
awarded three business perfor-
mance-based contracts that do
not dictate technique. Potentially,
all three contractors can work si-
multaneously.
Once awarded a task order, a
contractor must construct a 500-
foot demonstration panel to prove
the technique and finished panel


meets rigorous engineering stan-
dards. Engineers test the panel
prior to, during and after con-
struction. Corps contractor, Hay-
ward Baker Inc., based in Oden-
ton, Md., successfully completed
a panel near Port Mayaca in April,
and is currently constructing a
3,500-foot section of wall.
Hayward Baker is using the
Trench Cutting and Remixing
Deep wall method (TRD), while
Bauer Foundation will use a Hy-
draulic Excavator and Cutter-Soil-
Mix (CSM) method. The TRD
involves a hydraulic-driven cut-
ting and mixing arm, resembling
a chain saw, that pumps out and
mixes cement with foundation


soil in a continuous trench as the
trench is being dug. Bauer's CSM
technique involves excavating a
guide trench first to collect spoil,
and then advancing the mixing,
tool into the ground. Cutting
wheels break up dike materials
and at the same time, a fluid is
pumped through a set of noz-
zles, located between the cutting
wheels, where it is mixed with
the loosened soil.
A critical design feature in the
rehabilitation, the wall will stop
existing piping, or internal ero-
sion, and prevent future piping.
The first section of wall is being
built from Port Mayaca to Belle
Glade, a 22-mile stretch that is


considered the most vulnerable
section of the 143-mile dike. The
Corps anticipates awarding a third-
,task order in June and a fourth in
August, with all construction tak-
ing place within the 22-mile sec-
tion.
Jacksonville District is currently
rehabilitating portions of the dike
that were identified as most vul-
nerable, focusing initial efforts to
achieve the most significant im-
pacts. Engineers are also design-
ing the HHD to dam standards,
with additional redundancy and
resiliency to account for extreme
weather events.
Rehabilitating the HHD is the
Jacksonville District's number


one priority. In 2007, the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers placed
the HHD on the Top 6 list of dams
in the nation needing repair. The
Corps has prioritized and budget-
ed more funding for HHD in 2008
and 2009 than any other dam
safety construction project in the
nation. The HHD project received
$56 million this year and, in Fiscal
Year 2009, it's projected to receive
$78 million for construction.
