through the zipper of his pants.
The suspect then reportedly
proceeded to have sex with the
girl. The victim later told the
suspect to stop because she
didn't want to 'put her parents to
shame,' according to the arrest
report.
But the suspect didn't stop.
The victim told investigators that
the suspect didn't wear a con-
dom.
According to the affidavit,
the following week, the suspect
picked the victim up for church
again and after service was over,


he reportedly drove her to an un-

his car.
Again, the victim was sitting
in the back seat with the suspect
making sexual advances toward

The victim told detectives that
she told the suspect to stop, but
he forced himself on her.
The suspect committed the
same crime, again after church

Vehicle collision on Gator Blvd.


Two drivers suffer
critical injuries in
wreck
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Three men
suffered injuries as a result of
an early morning vehicle col-
lision which took place on
Wednesday, June 24.
Rescue crews worked to
rescue one man who became
pinned inside a truck.
According to information
provided by the Florida High-
way Patrol (FHP), Leonard G.
West, 48 and Artemio Garza,


27, both from Belle Glade, were
'traveling westbound on Gator
Boulevard at approximately 8
a.m
Mr. West was driving a John
Deere farm tractor, while Mr.
Garza was operating a 2002
Ford F-150 pickup truck.
Mr. Garza was reportedly
driving his truck behind the
tractor at the time.
The farm tractor driver pro-
ceeded to pull part way onto
Hatton Highway as he was re-
portedly making a U-turn on
Gator Boulevard.
The pickup truck driver told
highway patrol officials he be-


lieved that Mr. West crossed
over the solid yellow line (no
passing zone) as he headed
north on Hatton Highway. :
The crash report said that the
farm tractor re-entered Gator
Boulevard without yielding to
the pickup truck, which caused
the front of the truck to strike
the left side of the tractor.
As a result of the fateful colli-
sion, the farm tractor reportedly
careened off the road and onto
a nearby dirt road, going south
before crashing into a canal.
The pickup truck, which
was facing west, rested in the
middle of the interesction of

Notes of change; Seven good times, having vision


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I came into Church one morn-
ing and a young boy was crying
his eyes out under a staircase.
I knew him and his family; his
father had just gotten a job, a pro-
motion to another school where
he was to be principal.
The school was a "plum"- a
real promotion, only it meant
moving away.
This was the town where my
young acquaintance had grown
up, where he had his friends,
where he knew everyone and all
of the streets, and where he was
at home.
Now, this was all to be taken
away and there he sat, sobbing
and sobbing.
I looked at him. I knew how
he felt.
The memories came back to
me when we moved away for the
first time.
We moved from my school,
our extended family, friends, ev-
erything that was familiar, and
went to live in Miami.


I was a bit younger than the
young guy that I found that morn-
ing under the stairs; but I could
reassure him that it was going to
be all right.
What seemed like a "great
change" came, but I made new
friends, had new experiences,
learned new things, and found
that in a "new and strange place"
life could be very good indeed.
We've all heard about the land
sale that is proposed in Clewis-
ton.
Apparently, things aren't going
to be like they used to be.
Without the "business-as-
usual" (literally and figuratively!),
many of the things taken for
granted just might not be there.
In the midst of all of my think-
ing about it, there came echoes of
a Biblical story.
It was about Joseph.
It came when I read in.the an-
nouncement that there would be
"seven more harvests of cane"..
and then there was the story in
Genesis about' Joseph interpret-.
ing Pharaoh's dream (Genesis 4).
'...seven heads of grain, full and
good...seven other heads, with-


ered and thin (v.22)."
Pharaoh is concerned about
what it all means and one of his
chiefs remembered that Joseph is
good at interpreting things.
The message from Joseph to
Pharaoh was to collect food dur-
ing the food times to prepare for
the times to come (v.35).
If there is something to be
learned about "redeeming the
time", it is to make use of the time
given.
My "gift" when my family
moved was to realize that things
didn't come to an end even when
everything seemed turned upside
down and things as I knew them
were to be left behind.
That could be shared many
years later when a young boy was
going through what I had gone
through years before.
My vision of "the horrors of
change" was revised.
Many of the things I counted
on being always there would be
far away; many of the familiar
people and parts of my life that
gave a sense of security now
would be changed.
I learned, though, that all of


my visions would include more
people and things than I could
have ever imagined, that some
doors would close but others
would open, that I would get to
explore many facets of life that I
didn't even know existed.
My visions had expanded and
with the change came another
sense of security; that I could ex-
ist, and work, and do well in new
places with new people and new
experiences, and even love it all
and thrive where I had found my-
self.
Proverbs (29:18) tells us
"Where there is no vision, the
people perish."
I've found that the things that
have changed my life, even things
I didn't want or didn't plan on
having happen, have given me a
new vision.
I've learned to plan along the
way, during "the seven good
years" to tide me over when
things are unknown.
What is our vision for the fu-
ture?
Proverbs tells us that "where
there is no vision, the people per-
ish" but the verse goes on.

We are living in a world today
where lemonade is made from
artificial flavors and furniture pol-
ish is made from real lemons.
Here are some "real lemon"
statements we can smile at be-
cause of the element of truth they
contain!
America, you've got to love it!
Only in America can a pizza get
to your house faster than an am-
bulance.
Only in America do drugstores
make the sick walk all the way to
the back of the store to get their
prescriptions, while healthy peo-
ple can buy cigarettes at the front.
Only in America do people order
double cheeseburgers, large fries
and a Diet Coke.
Only in America do we leave
cars worth thousands of dollars in


velop such freedoms seems like a
lot of time, but compared to other
nations, we are just a child.
And yet we stand tall among
these countries because of the
principles on which we were es-
tablished: "We hold these truths
to be self-evident, that all men
are created equal, that they are
endowed by their Creator with,
certain inalienable Rights, that
among these are Life, Liberty, and
the pursuit of Happiness." Dec-
laration of Independence.
Other contributions: "Do
not let anyone claim tribute of
American patriotism if they even
attempt to remove religion from
politics." George Washington.
"We have been assured, Sir, in
the Sacred Writings, that 'except
the Lord build the House, they la-


"Sure I wave the American
flag. Do you know a better flag to
wave? Sure I love my country with
all her faults. I'm not ashamed of
that, never have been, never will

"Every generation of Ameri-
cans needs to know that freedom
consists not in doing what we like,
but in having the right to do what
we ought." Pope John Paul II.
I celebrate today with you the
freedoms which God has blessed
this great nations of ours.
But with freedom comes re-
sponsibility, and with responsibil-
ity, outreach.
,,j' Recall the inscription on the
Statue of Liberty: "Give me your

pupils how they could tell when
the night had ended and the day
had begun.
"Could it be," asked one stu-
dent, "when you can see an
animal in the distance and tell
whether it's a sheep or a dog?"
"No," answered the rabbi.
Another asked, "Is it when you
can look at a tree in the distance
and tell whether it's a fig tree or a
peach tree?"
"No," answered the rabbi.
"Then when is it?" the pupils
demanded.
"It. is when you can look on
the face of any person and see
that it is your sister and brother,
because if you cannot see this, it
is still night."
Let's let freedom light our
days!


. It adds that "he that keepeth
the law, happy is he."
Being faithful, working to
have a vision, not being afraid of
change but planning ahead and
preparing for it with what God
has entrusted to us during the
present; all of these things should
stand us in good stead.
In fact, I think I've already


been doing these things for quite:
a while in my life.
The Lord has taken us through'
in the past; He will continue to be.
with us.
Many of the things that seem
fearful may also be gifts to us; if
we use them wisely and make
use of the present opportunities.

Veteran nurse celebrates 40 years.


BELLE GLADE-In a career that
has spanned 40 years, Patty Hood
has always wanted to make a dif-
ference by providing quality care
to her patients. As the Director
of Pedittrics/Medical Surgery at
Glades General Hospital (GGH),
she supervises a staff of 24 nurs-
es, including L.P.N.s, R.N.s, and
C.N.A.s, she is responsible for
schedules, nurse staffing hours,
payroll, evaluation, and continu-
ing education. Ms. Hood also
oversees daily care of GGH pa-
tients. Her most rewarding role is
the working. relationship she has
with all levels of staff in the hos-
pital in what she calls "a culture
of caring."
Ms. Hood began her career
at GGH in. 1966 as a high school
student working in the medi-
cal records department. During
nursing school in Panama City,
she returned to work at GGH ev-
ery summer and also instituted a
candy striper program. On June
29, 1968, Ms. Hood began her
full-time nursing career at Glades
General. Over the last four de-
cades she has served as a nurse in
every department of the hospital.
From delivering babies to coping
with family tragedy and crisis, Ms.
Hood has experienced all aspects
of nursing during her tenure.
Ms. Hood is truly dedicated
to her profession. "This is one of
the only professions that you can
have a direct impact on some-
one's life," said Ms. Hood. "It's
been my blessing that I've been


able to create 40 years of relation-
ships and treat the grandchildren
of former patients." Ms. Hood has
been recognized by the health-
care community for her genuine
care for others-both patients
and staff. In 2007 she received
the Palm Healthcare Foundation
Nursing Distinction Awards Extra
Mile Award, which recognizes a
nurse who fosters professional
growth in others and serves the
community as a mentor or vol-
unteer.
Mary Weeks, GGH's Chief
Nursing Officer has seen the ef-
fect Patty has on her patients.
"When Patty walks into a room,
people immediately feel cared
for and valued," said Ms. Weeks.
"She exemplifies the kind of care
and compassion Glades General
is known for, and will continue to
provide once we move into our
new hospital."
The new $73 million regional
hospital in the Glades is scheduled
to open in early 2010. The Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty has committed $50 million
toward the modern healthcare
facility which will feature 70 sin-
gle-occupancy inpatient rooms,
a large ER with 16 treatment ar-
eas, an onsite helipad for rapid
transport by the Health Care Dis-
trict's Trauma Hawk emergency
helicopters, and advanced tech-
nologies to promote safety and
efficiencies. Glades Healthcare
Foundation is leading the capital
campaign to raise the remaining

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

First Gold Award,



Court of Honor


On Friday, June 6, Girl Scout
Cadette/Senior Troop 1170 of Belle
Glade held its first Gold Award
Court of Honor at the Commu-
nity United Methodist Church. The
Gold Award is Girl Scout's highest
award and is the equivalent of the
Boy Scout Eagle Award. To earn
this award a Girl Scout must be
14 to 18 years of age, earn several
badges, set goals for personal de-
velopment, and spend many hours
in leadership roles and career ex-
ploration. She must become in-
volved in her community so that
she can focus on a need that she is
passionate about. Then she must
plan and carry out a community
service project of at least 65 hours,
which has been approved by her
Girl Scout Council.
Jessica Bair and Stefanie Mayo,
members of Troop 1170, have
achieved this task. Jessica's proj-
ect involved holding seminars
and health fairs to inform parents
about the dangers of Retinoblas-
toma, a common malignant eye
disease in infants and young chil-
dren. Regular and proper eye ex-
ams can detect this disease at an
early stage and save a child's life.
Jessica's advisor for her project
was Optometrist Dr. Donald A.
Fliehs. For her project, Stefanie
chose to fingerprint elementary
school children in one of Belle
Glade's Private Schools. These fin-
gerprints along with other person-
al identifying information, picture,
and hair sample for DNA testing
will be kept with the child's per-
manent school. In the event they
are ever needed, they will be easily
available. Stefanie's advisor for her
project was D/S Lee Sutteifield;
Among their numerous friends
and family members, Jessica and
Stefanie were honored to have
several distinguished guests attend
their ceremony. These 'included
Mrs. Denise Valz, Chief Executive


Officer with Girl Scouts of Palm
Glades Council (GSPGC), Mrs.
Demi Clemmons, Director of Pro-
gramming with GSPGC, Mrs. Nata-
lie Gustafson, Membership Ser-
vices Manager with GSPGC for the
Glades Area, and Mrs. Audrey Ar-
thur-Rao, Director of Membership
Services with GSPGC who acted as
the Mistress of Ceremony. Also in
attendance were Mr. Steve Wilson,
Mayor of the City of Belle Glade
and Mrs. Esther Berry, Vice Mayor
of the city of South Bay. Both cit-
ies presented Proclamations to the
girls. Mrs. Pamela Bergsma, found-
er of Joey Bergsma Retinoblas-
toma Awareness Foundation, D/S
Lee Sutterfield and D/S Mark Sut-
terfield from the Palm Beach Co.
Sheriff's Office shared with guests
some of the highlights of working
with the Gold Awardees, and Sr.
Laura Cavanaugh, Volunteer Pro-
gram Manager for Athena Service
Unit, brought Girl Scouts from
Troops number 719 and number
944 to take part in this inspiring
event. Jessica and Stefanie gave
words of encouragement and sup-
port for younger Girls Scouts.
During the ceremony both Jes-
sica and Stefanie were challenged
to live a life worthy of the Gold
Award honor by living by the Girl
Scout Promise and Law in all they
do. Receiving the Gold Award is
not just one celebratory moment,
but a lifetime commitment.
Jessica is the daughter of Mi-
chael and Johanis Bair of Belle
Glade, and granddaughter of Mr.
and Mrs. Glenn Bair and Mr. and
Mrs. Aurelio Ayes also of Belle
Glade. Stefanie is the daughter
of Edward Mayo Jr. of Clewiston
and Dollie Mayo of South Bay,
and granddaughter of Mr. and Mrs.
Edward Mayo Sr. of Belle Glade
and Mr., and, Mris. Aaron Pettry of
South Bay.

Letter to the editor


Dear City Officials,
Another hurricane season is
already upon us and I wanted to
remind each of you the role 211
Palm Beach/Treasure Coast has
during this time of year. As you
already know, 211 Palm Beach/
Treasure Coast is a private, non-
profit organization that provides
access to information, referral,
telephone counseling, crisis inter-
vention, and suicide prevention
24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
Locally, 211 is able to assist any
individual living in Palm Beach,
Martin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and
Okeechobee Counties Last year
211 answered over 155,000 phone
calls from community members,
in need of assistance.
In addition to the year round
services offered, 211 is very in-
volved during hurricane season
as well. Before, during and after


a hurricane, 211 will supply the
same services as normal, except
Call Center Specialists will also be
equipped to disseminate informa-
tion regarding specific recovery
and relief efforts as well as be
able to provide telephone coun-
seling for those in need.
Community Relations Special-
ists for 211 will be working very
closely with the Emergency Op-
eration Center for each county
211 serves. Therefore; as soon as
the EOC is informed, 211 will also
be informed about the status of
various services within the areas.
This relationship with the EOC
will enable 211 to not only better
inform individuals who call.seek-
ing hurricane related information,
but it will also help maintain the
integrity of 911 as an emergency
only number to call.
When individuals are under


stress due to hurricanes, they
tend to call any service organiza-
tion available, which means 911
receives a lot of calls not relevant
to an emergency. For that reason,
it is imperative the public is aware
of the services and information
they can receive around the clock
by dialing 2-1-1 from their home
or cell phone. 211. has also creat-
ed an additional resource for indi-
viduals by implementing a special
hurricane website. When there is
an approaching storm in the area,
individuals can visit the website
at http://hurricane211 pbtc.org
to view updated information on
resources in Palm Beach Mar-
tin, St. Lucie, Indian River, and
Okeechobee Counties.
Should you or your staff re-
ceive calls related to hurricane
issues, please feel free to'refer
individuals to 211 Palm Beach /


Treasure Coast or have them visit
the hurricane website. However,
please ensure you are referring
appropriate calls to 211, such
as questions referring to storm
shelter openings, road closures,
school closures, curfews, distri-
bution sites, etc. Please do not
encourage callers to call 211 with
questions such as what gas sta-
tions have gas, to receive weather
updates, or to inform 211 their
power iis out. These calls would
not only be considered inappro-
priate, but they will add to the
increase in call volume and take
away from people who need rel-
evant, health or human -service
questions answered.
Please don't hesitate to contact
us should you have any questions
or need additional information.
Rhonda Throop can be reached
at (561) 533-1065..


Letters to the Editor


As a Clewiston and Belle Glade
businessman and a Belle Glade
City Commissioner and a lifelong
resident of this area, the eventual
closing of .U.S. Sugar really hits
close to home for me and my fam-'
ily. In the past three years, we have
already lost a lot of good friends
and business acquaintances due
to layoffs from U. S. Sugar in Belle
Glade, Pahokee and Clewiston.
That devastation of layoffs will be
nothing compared to the effect
that the complete closure of such
a large company will have in the
communities where it's presence


has meant so much for so many.
From what I understand, they will
continue to operate for another
.six year period. At least this will
give people here a little time to
prepare for their future.
I guess what irritates me the
most is that once again the en-
vironmentalists have claimed
yet another victory which will
take away from the livelihood of
many people and families at the
expense of the taxpayers of the
State of Florida.
I am an avid hunter and fisher-
man so the environment is very


important to me but at what cost?
We cannot drill for oil off our
coastline and now our farmers
are being bought out by the state.
You would think that the taxpay-
ers of our state should have a vote
on whether they would want to
spend a tremendous amount of
1.7 BILLION dollars to buy out
this company., for the so called
sake of the environment.
The environmentalists see U.S.
Sugar as the greedy sugar barons
that destroy the Everglades and
pollute the lake. Whether that has
ever been proven or not, I don't


know. What I do.know is that the
employees of U.S. Sugar are hard
working people who are trying to
make an honest living and raise
their families ,with dignity. So,
while the environmentalists are
starting their celebration and pop-
ping the cork on their champaign
bottles, remember the 1,700 plus
employees and their families and
ask yourself this question, "who'll
be next?" It just might be you.

Plan now for
November
. It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "0" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee. The
Hike will begin in Pahokee on
November 22, and end at Paho-
kee on November 30.
That's nine days of Walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea-
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days.
So plan now and get in shape
for November.

The city of Clewiston: the town that sugar built


By Jeff Klinkenberg
'St. Petersburg Times
CLEWISTON Anita Griffin is
proud of her chicken, moist on the
inside, crisp on the outside and
never greasy. Griffin everyone
'calls her Miss Anita is a classic
Southern cook who learned from
her mother, raised a brood of
children and ended up in homey
.Clewiston, where she opened Di-
xie Chicken & Seafood.
She's a tiny woman of 73,
,with white hair and apple cheeks.
Sometimes after closing, folks tap
on the glass, hoping for one more
drumstick or a peek at her shrine
to Elvis Presley.
"I feed a lot of people," she
said, wiping the counter for the
"umpteenth time.
Now more than ever, the citi-
zens of Clewiston need comfort
'food from Miss Anita.
The ultimate company town,
Clewiston is losing its company.
U.S. Sugar, which began grow-
ing sugarcane in 1931, plans to
*sell its 187,000 acres and assets to
the state as part of an Everglades
restoration plan. The company,
which employs 1,700 people
*- most of them in this town of
7,000 is going to shut down in
six years.
Everything is about to change.
And nobody knows if life will
,.,change for the better or for the
,!worse.
"This was a slap in the face to
,the whole town," Miss Anita said.
"Who is going to buy my chicken,
my collards, my German choco-
ilate cake?"
To some in the outside world,
the industry known as "Big Sug-
ar" was a corporate villain that ex-
ploited poor workers and dumped
-:pollution in the Everglades. But if
you lived in Clewiston, in one of
.the little pretty neighborhoods off
Sugarland Highway, it was differ-
ent.
U.S. Sugar made life possible.
'It built Cane Field Stadium for the
high school, Candy Cane Park
(for the toddlers. It gave money
'to Clewiston Public Library,
sponsored the Sugar Festival and
funded the Harlem Academy, the
day care facility in the black com-

munity. It gave Ernestine Harris, a
35-year employee, a scholarship
so she could learn the day care
business.
Your daddy worked for U.S.
Sugar, or your uncle, spouse, son
or daughter. U.S. Sugar donated
money to send your kids to col-
lege. Some kids never came back,
but many did, and they got jobs
at U.S. Sugar and spent their pay-
checks at True-Value Hardware,
Wal-Mart and Miss Anita's chick-
en restaurant.
They bought wrigglers from
Charlie's Worms to fish for speck-
led perch in Lake Okeechobee,
Valentine's Day flowers at Clewis-
ton Florist, a six-pack at Suzy B.
Liquors.
If you needed to talk to the
mayor, Mali Chamness would
listen sympathetically. Her folks
were sugar people.
On Wednesday, a deacon
tweaked the sign in front of First
Baptist Church of Clewiston, pro-
moting next Sunday's sermon:
"A word for the anxious, angry
and fearful."
For six months beginning
each fall, workers streamed into
the fields surrounding Clewiston
and lit fires to burn dead leaves


away from the cane stalks before
the harvest. Smoke billowed and
floated toward West Palm Beach
or Fort Myers and inevitably pro-
voked complaints about that aw-
ful sweet smell.
"It smelled like money to us. It
meant tradition. Our way of life,"
said Christa Hill, 48, who worked
for U.S. Sugar for 30 years, man-
aging its charming hotel, the
Clewiston Inn, located next to
corporate headquarters. "Yes, it
smells. Yes, the soot gets on your
clothes. The soot gets on your car.
So you wash it off. Life goes on."
Her husband, a farmer at U.S.
Sugar for more than three de-
cades, will lose his job in the near
future. The company plans to pay
severance to its employees, and
many will cash in stock they own.
"We're looking at our options,
but we don't know what we'll
do," Hill said.
"I want to stay. I love this town.
But I have to say we're still in
shock. We never thought this day
was going to happen. We had a
lot of smart people at U.S. Sugar
who could solve any problem.
The company was always going
to be there for us."

and Resort on Lake Okeechobee,
manager Ramon Iglesias had an-.
other view.
"I think-it might be a change
for the better," he said. "U.S.
Sugar helped our town, but also
controlled everything in town and
kept other businesses out. This
will be an opportunity for new
business and development."
In recent years, regulatory
pressures' and competition have
made business tougher for Big
Sugar. Layoffs at U.S. Sugar Corp.
began about a decade ago. The
company reduced its work force
by 40 percent.
Butch Wilson, 57, got the ax
in October. He had started small,


worked himself up the chain, to
a computer expert. 'Even the big
shots knew him.
He was stunned to learn about
his lack of importance to a com-
pany to which he had given 32
years.
Now he is the director of the
little Clewiston History Museum.
It is filled with 79 years of sugar
artifacts, pieces of machines,
photographs of machete-wield-
ing men harvesting cane, and his
memories.
"We were a great company,"
he said. "Look at me. I still say
'we.' When I think of U.S. Sugar,
I. don't think about the company
that laid me off. I think about


the company that allowed me
to live in a small town and edu-
cate my children. They gave my
kids scholarships to college. Two
of my kids got master's degrees.
Isn't that something?"
He got up from his desk, the
one covered with artifacts, and
walked over to lock the front
door.
"I don't know what's hap-
pened to America," he said. "But
I do think What's happening in
Clewiston is the shadow that is
falling over all of America. All the
homegrown businesses are dis-
appearing.
"All of us are worried. Some-
thing has gone way wrong."

Fundraising for new





hospital is restructured


WEST PALM BEACH-To more ef-
ficiently achieve the mission of raising
funds for the construction of the new
$73 million dollar regional hospital
in the Glades, the Glades Healthcare
Foundation is being restructured in an
effort to effect greater efficiencies and
cost savings. Since it was formed by
the Health Care District of Palm Beach
County in October 2006, the not-for-
profit Foundation has promoted im-
proved access to healthcare in the
Glades and has secured numerous
gifts, grants and philanthropic pledg-
es. In February, the Palm Healthcare
Foundation provided a generous gift
of $1 million to support the Palm
Healthcare Center for Better Nutrition.
This center will be a centerpiece at the
new regional hospital by providing
high nutritional meals to aid patients
in their recovery and will serve as a
community destination for healthy
eating and nutrition education. Many
other gifts have been received from
individuals as well as businesses
throughout Palm Beach County, with
total pledges of nearly $2 million.
While there has been success in
the campaign, the downturn in the
economy has made fundraising more
challenging. In order to reduce ad-
ministrative overhead and maximize
the dollars going towards the cause,


a restructure has become necessary.
Some of the notable changes include
a reduction in Foundation staff and
consulting expenses.
"The Glades Healthcare Founda-
tion plays an essential role in sup-
porting the development of the new
regional hospital. The Foundation will
continue its mission while it explores
alternatives to most cost-effectively
accomplish its campaign goals," said
C. David Goodlett, Chair of the Glades
Healthcare Foundation and Health
Care District Board member. "The
Foundation continues to benefit from
outstanding leadership on the Foun-
dation Board and our campaign lead-
ership team. I am personally grateful
for all of the support, time and dedica-
tion these individuals have provided."
The new hospital is a reality and
construction is progressing at a rapid
rate. The steel superstructure is al-
ready in place and reinforced concrete
walls are being installed to protect the
hospital from hurricanes. The Health
Care District has committed $50 mil-
lion toward the 70-bed hospital and
medical campus, making it the largest
capital project in the District's 19-year
history. The new hospital, centrally lo-
cated at the southwest corner of Main
Street and Hooker Highway, is sched-
uled to open in early 2010.


Once completed, the hospital will
feature 70 private patient rooms with
additional family-friendly consultation
rooms. The Emergency Room will
have 16 treatment areas and six pri-
vate rooms in the Critical Care Unit.
A helipad will allow for rapid trans-
port by the District's Trauma Hawk
emergency helicopters. In addition,
the campus will offer ample parking
facilities, a Palm Tran bus stop, and
space for future facilities, such as
medical office buildings. The project
is being led by the Health Care Dis-
trict's Senior Development Executive,
Michael J. Gates, who continues to
ensure that the project stays on time
and on budget.
"The Foundation's activities are
important and I applaud the Founda-
tion Board's action to lower costs dur-
ing these times," said Jonathan Satter,
Health Care District Board Chair. "By
better utilizing current resources, the
campaign will continue advancing
additional gifts from individuals, busi-
nesses and organizations. Together,
we have our eye on the ball and will
deliver the hospital needed in the
community."

County health care district




gains national recognition


SANTA FE, N.M.-At the annual
conference of the National Associa-
tion of Public Hospitals (NAPH) to-
day, the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County's Vita Health cover-
age program received recognition at
the organization's annual Safety Net
awards ceremony in Santa Fe. The
NAPH awards program recognizes
public hospitals and health systems
that deliver exemplary service and
results in a variety of areas. The Vita
Health program was recognized in
the category of Community Engage-
ment. As noted in the award an-
nouncement, the Health Care District
has more than doubled the member-
ship of the affordable health cover-
age program in less than a year as a
direct result of a multi-channel public
awareness campaign.
Commenting on the award, Health
Care District's Chief Executive Officer,
Dwight D. Chenette, MBA, MPH said:
"Covering the uninsured is an increas-
ingly challenging problem nation-
wide. In Palm Beach County about 20
percent of our residents lack health
insurance. As a tax-funded safety-
net health care system with a long-
standing commitment to providing
uninsured residents access to health
coverage, the Health Care District
launched Vita Health in 2006 as an
affordable, shared-cost program de-
signed to meet the needs particularly
of lower-income workers who are not
eligible for programs like Medicaid
but who can't afford private health
insurance."
Vita Health provides inpatient acute
care, emergency room services, out-
patient surgery, diagnostic services,
primary care services, specialty physi-
cian services, and prescription drugs.
To be eligible, residents must be be-
tween the ages of I and 65, uninsured
during the preceding six months, and
meet certain income requirements.
The monthly premiums range from
$25 to $100 per individual with co-
payments as low as $5 per office visit.


The District funds approximately two-
thirds of the monthly premium.
In July 2007 the District com-
menced a community engagement
campaign with the goal of doubling
Vita Health membership. Multiple
channels and media were used: direct
mail, print ads in different languages,
bus decals, posters in medical offices
and drug stores, informational dis-
plays in shopping malls and stores,
and tables at health fairs. Since the
campaign began, Vita Health mmber-
ship has more than doubled.
Ms. Debi Gavras, Core Operations
Officer of the Health Care District who
oversees its Managed Care programs,
including Vita Health, adds: "In the
period since we submitted the ap-
plication for the award, the Florida
State Legislature has approved rais-
ing the ceiling of income eligibility
from 200 to 300 percent of the Fed-
eral Poverty Line for programs like
Vita Health. That means many more
Palm Beach County residents poten-
tially may qualify. We intend to con-
tinue our community and business
engagement efforts unabated, so we
can give even more residents peace of
mind and a medical home, and in so
doing we will help reduce the current
high levels of uncompensated care,
emergency room overcrowding, and
more expensive care due to delayed
access."
In Palm Beach County, health care
providers absorb substantial costs
for uninsured patients who present
for care. Vita Health members visit
an ER at a lower rate (12/1000 mem-
bers) compared to the Medicaid HMO
population in the county (38/1000
members). The program also encour-
ages timely preventive care. A recent
Florida health insurance study found
that half of the uninsured either de-
lay or simply don't get needed medi-
cal care, due to lack of coverage and
cost. Nine of the top ten reasons Vita
Health members visited their primary
care physicians were related to pre-


ventive care services.
Health Care District Board Chair
Jonathan Satter noted: "Providing so-
lutions for the uninsured is a complex
challenge and one that the Health
Care District has made a priority for
more than fifteen years. Early in its ex-
istence, the District structured a free
health coverage program called Coor-
dinated Care that helps approximately
30,000 residents who are not eligible
for Medicaid and whose income is be-
low 150 percent of the Federal Poverty
Level. However, the number of unin-
sured continues to increase, particu-
larly at income levels exceeding eli-
gibility requirements, fr .Coordinated
Care. More than half of the uninsured
in Florida report that they have been
without coverage for longer than a
year, and nearly one in five say they
never have had coverage. The primary
reason why people go without health
insurance is the cost. To give them an
affordable option the Health Care Dis-
trict launched Vita Health. The major-
ity of those who are eligible for this
program are either self-employed or
employed part-time."
The Health Care District funds
or administers health coverage for
SCHIP, Medicaid, and several health
initiatives designed for targeted
populations. The District spends ap-
proximately $85 million a year on
delivering health coverage solutions
in Palm Beach County. In addition to
these managed care programs, the
Health Care District serves the com-
munity through other core programs,
including a maternity program, a
rural public hospital, a nationally ac-
claimed Trauma System, a network
of pharmacies, a rehabilitation and
skilled-nursing center, and clinics
with a dedicated nurse in more than
170 public schools.

Take steps to prevent identity theft


By Tabitha Trent, Branch
Manager/Vice President
Riverside National Bank
Everywhere you turn these days
there are ads and offers for identity
theft protection. And no wonder. Last
year the Federal Trade Commission
(FTC) reported that it received more
complaints of identity theft than any
other crime. The FTC estimates there
are 8.3 million identity theft victims in
the United States every year, losing an
average of $500 each.
So, should you spend $12, $15 or
more per month to protect yourself
from the frustration and financial loss
associated with this crime?
You can protect yourself.
Identity theft generally follows some
predictable patterns many of which
you can protect yourself from.
Pattern: Phlshing
Protection: Although phishing
emails get a lot of publicity, these
scams can also take place via email
or in person. A simple rule of thumb:
no credible financial or government
institution will ever ask you for your
personal information. If anyone claim-
ing to be a credit card company, bank,
or store asks for your account number,
password, social security number, date
of birth or other personal information,
just say no.
Pattern: Mail theft
Protection: You may be surprised
how much personal information pass-
es through the mail. Credit card offers,


bank statements, and invoices all con-
tain potentially exploitable information.
To protect yourself, take these steps:
Prevent dumpster diving by shred-
ding documents before throwing them
away. The same goes for credit card of-
fers and courtesy checks.
*Know when to expect monthly
financial statements and follow up if
they do not arrive. Thieves steal state-
ments or divert them to other locations
by filing a change of address without
your knowledge. Make sure your bank
confirms all address changes before
mailing your statement.
Pattern: Electronic theft
Protection: Methods for. stealing
electronic data both online and from
your home computer are growing in-
creasingly sophisticated.
*When shopping online use pro-
tected sites and avoid easy to guess
passwords like your date of birth or
phone number.
*Make sure no one overhears or
sees you enter your password, and
never write your password on your
debit card or checkbook.
Use firewalls and anti-spyware
and anti-virus software to protect your
computer.
Pattern: Physical theft
Protection: Yes, thieves still steal
wallets and purses. Think twice about
carrying sensitive personal documents
with you. Leave social security cards,
birth certificates and passports at home
whenever possible. Use a locking file


for sensitive information especially if
you have roommates or service people
around. Keep a record of all ID and
credit card numbers along with the
company contact number so you can
report the loss quickly in the event of
theft.
Monitor your information and set
up protections.
Instead of paying for a credit moni-
toring service, get in the habit of check-
ing your statements carefully when
you receive.them or sign up to review
them online. You can also request a
free credit report at www.annualcred-
itreport.com.
Work with your bank to set up pro-
tocols for establishing your identity
before sharing information, and be pa-
tient if your bank asks you identifying
questions they are trying to protect
you.
If you think you may be a victim of
identity theft, contact the Federal Trade
Commission Identity Theft Hotline
at 1-877-ID-THEFT (438-4338). You
should also contact the Fraud Depart-
ment of the major credit bureaus and
ask them to flag your file and contact
you regarding any future activity.
Taking these precautions may add
some short-term inconvenience to
your banking, but will protect you and
your good credit in the end.
For questions on this topic or more
information about banking, Tabitha
Trent can be reached at 863-824-0400,

On February 18, the victim
received a medical examination
from the Child Protection Team
(CPT), which revealed that the
girl could have suffered from a
'medically induced termination
or spontaneous miscarriage'.
The examination reportedly con-
firmed that the findings positively
showed that the victim was sexu-
ally abused.
Investigators
interrogate the suspect
On March 12, the suspect
reportedly gave investigators a
taped interview shortly after re-
turning from work that day.
As the interview began, the
suspect was told of the allega-
tions and was reportedly sweat-
ing profusely.
The suspect told detectives
that he knew the victim and her
family, but denied all of the allega-


tions placed on him.
When pressed further about
the incidents, the suspect told in-
vestigators repeatedly that the girl
was 'lying' and started stuttering
his words.
The very next day, the suspect
reportedly agreed to take a com-
puter voice stress analysis (CVSA)
test, but not before finding him a
lawyer.
Five days later, the victim told
detectives she was told that the
suspect had left the United States
and went to Haiti on the day'he
was supposed to take the CVSA
test.
It was revealed to investiga-
tors that there was no record of
the suspect landing in Haiti on or
about March 13, the day of the
test.
Later that day, detectives were
informed by Attorney Jordan
Lewin that the suspect was not.


detained and was unsure wheth-
er or not he would take the sus,
pect's case.
In fact, the attorney told de-
tectives that he wasn't even sure
where the suspect was on the
day the test was supposed to be
taken.
On April 11, the victim told in-
vestigators that the suspect's wife
had made comments in passing
to her mother, stating the she was
going to be 'placing voodoo on
the family,' which made the vic-
tim's family highly upset.
Based on all of these allega-
tions, there was enough probable
cause for investigators to charge
the suspect with lewd and las-
civious battery and sexual activity
with a child.

Summer
Continued From Page 1

For starters, youth and adults
can participate in flag football
competition, which will begin on
Sunday, July 6 at 5 p.m. in the Pio-
neer Park facility.
The summer football program
will be held each Sunday through-
out the month at the location.
Also, a co-ed volleyball league
has been established for the sum-
mer, which is yet another outlet
for people of all ages to get in-
volved in.
Anyone interested can take
part in the activity, which will be
available Mondays and Wednes-
days from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Bill
Bailey gymnasium.
"There are pockets of recre-
ation in the city, but not every-


one knows about it," Mr. Patrick
said. "The recreation department
would like to bridge all of its pro-
grams together in hopes of maxi-
mizing awareness to the youth of
the city."
In addition to the two sports,
basketball will be offered in at
least, two formations: An open
three-on-three basketball league
for anyone from 6-ye'ars-old and
older, as well as a middle school
five-on-five league geared towards
kids from the ages of 12 to 15.
The three-on-three basketball.
league, which began on June
23, is available on Mondays and
Wednesday from 2 to 6 p.m. at
the Bill Bailey gymnasium.
What can heighten the interest
of the area's youth is that there are
seven basketball teams featured
in the summer league (Glades
Central I and II, Junior All-Stars,
Pahokee All-Stars, Pahokee High


School, South Bay, Covenant Vil-
lage and Duke). All of these teams
can be seen in competition every
Tuesday and' Thursday at the Bill
Bailey gymnasium.
The teams each. play each
other in one hour blocks, with
the first matchup beginning at 6
p.m., followed by the 7 p.m. and
8 p.m. games.
"We're trying to regain the
kids' interest in recreation," Mr.
Patrick said. "The bottom line is
that in the past, we didn't have a
lot of adequate facilities, and suf-
ficient funds to run the programs
in the past."
Those interested in improving
their physique can take part in
a fitness program at the Glades
Central High School weight room
facility, which will be open from
Monday through Thursdays be-
tween 3 and 5 p.m.
In addition, the wellness cen-


ter at the Lake Shore Civic Center
will be available each weekday,
from 2 to 9 p.m.
Both of these programs will
run through August 5.
"All youth and adults should be
involved in some type of activity,
whether it's physical or mental,"
Mr. Patrick said. "People nowa-
days want to live longer and be
healthy."
For those who like to swim,
the Lake Shore Swimming Pool
is now open to all area residents.
Originally set to open on June 7,
it was delayed until June 23 due
to a series of mechanical failures
regarding a pool pump that was
reportedly frozen earlier this year,
according to Mr. Patrick.
The recreation director ex-
plained in brief that the pool,
which typically operates from
June to September each year,
experiences a pump freeze every


five years.
* "There's nothing we could
have done about it," Mr. Patrick
said. "It was just a normal occur-
rence."
From now until August 30,
swimming lessons will be offered
Monday through Thursdays from
8 a.m. to noon at the city pool.
Ultimately, Mr. Patrick would
like for the city to partner with a
variety of organizations to keep
the programs going each sum-
mer from this point on.
"What I can say is this depart-
ment is going to use outside re-
sources and community involve-
ment to help move this along,"
Mr. Patrick said. "We have other
entities that sponsor recreation
activities but the city needs to be-
come a facilitating partner for the
enhancement of recreation in our
community."
One way that the city's resi-


dents could be well-informed of
all activities, according to Mr. Pat-
rick, is by posting each upcoming
event or program on its website.
He hopes to have all of the rec-
reational activities posted in the
very near future.
"Wouldn't it be a good idea
for our recreation department to
know about all of the activities
that are available for our youth
and adults?" Mr. Patrick asked
aloud. "This is what has to hap-
pen in order for the community to
expand its opportunities in recre-
ation."
For more information on all of
the summer activities, please call

partment at 992-1622.

I could best fit within the com-
munity to make a positive differ-

Negotiations for historic Everglades



land acquisition move forward


Negotiations between
state, U.S. Sugar
could last 75 days

WEST PALM BEACH The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) took the next step
for bringing about ,one of the larg-
est environmental land' acquisi-
tions in Florida's history. ,
The Governing Board unani-
mously ratified the "Statement of
Principles" that was signed with
United States Sugar Corporation
and witnessed by Governor Char-
lie Crist last week to bring vast
tracts of land in the Everglades'
Agricultural Area into public own-
ership.
The formal action authorizes
District staff to now initiate de-
tailed negotiations and due dili-
gence to -purchase the assets of
United States Sugar Corporation,
including 187,000 acres of land,
for Everglades restoration.
Acquisition of the property will
provide the "missing link" needed
to protect Florida's coastal estuar-
ies and better revive, restore and
preserve one of America's great-
est national treasures-the Ever-
glades.
"Governor Crist's bold vision
has brought us to a new day for
Everglades restoration," said Eric
Buermann, SFWMD Governing
Board Chair.
"This is a significant moment
for our state, our nation and our
environment. Today's ratification
confirms the District's commit-
ment to this remarkable oppor-
tunity for protecting and restoring
America's Everglades and Flori-
da's coastal estuaries."
In accordance with the frame-
work and parameters outlined in
the Statement of Principles, de-
tailed and confidential purchase
agreement negotiations will now


begin, and could last for up to 75
days.
At the same time, independent
real estate appraisals and assess-
ments of the identified lands and
assets will be conducted by high-
ly-qualified specialists.
The ultimate purchase price
and agreement will depend upon.
the appraisals and assessments
and will require approval by the
District's Governing Board.
The proposed agreement be-
tween the South Florida Water
Management District and the
United States, Sugar Corporation
involves the public purchase of
nearly 300 square miles spanning
four counties in South Florida.
The land would be used to re-
establish a part of the historic con-
nection between Lake Okeecho-
bee and America's Everglades
through a managed system of
storage and treatment.
"The District and our partners
have made excellent progress in
environmental restoration during
the past decade, but this acquisi-
tion creates possibilities we never
thought possible," said SFWMD
Executive Director Carol Ann We-
hle.
"We look forward to working
closely with the local communi-
ties and our stakeholders as we
turn this landmark concept into a
working reality."
Benefits from the Everglades
land acquisition include;
Increases in water storage to
reduce harmful freshwater dis-
charges from Lake Okeechobee
to Florida's coastal rivers and es-
tuaries.
Improvements in the deliv-
ery of cleaner water to the Ever-
glades.
Preventing thousands of tons
of phosphorus from entering the
Everglades.
Eliminating the need for
"back-pumping" water into Lake
Okeechobee.


Relieving some pressures on
the Herbert Hoover Dike while
the federal government carries
out repairs.
Sustainable agriculture and
green energy production.
As part of the proposed acqui-
sition, United States Sugar Corpo-
ration, over the next six years, will
retain the right to farm and man-
age the land consistent with its
previous business practices and
fulfill remaining business obliga-
tions.
The District, together with
the Governor's Office of Tour-
ism, Trade and Economic Devel-
opment, will work closely with
communities surrounding the
Everglades Agricultural Area on
an economic transition as the ne-
gotiations move forward.
"As we work through these ne-
gotiations, it is imperative that we
keep the communities most af-
fected by this purchase engaged
and involved," said the SFWMD
Governing Board Chair.
"This Governing Board is com-
mitted to working with its state
and local partners to realize not
only the environmental benefits
of this potential purchase but also
the new economic opportunities
associated with sustained agri-
culture, green energy production
and restoration."
