Glades school grades released


Glade View achieves
AYP, but Glades Cen-
tral receives F

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES The state released
school grades on Tuesday.
First, the good news.
Over at K. Cunningham/Ca-
nal Point Elementary School in
Canal Point, the school received'"
its first-ever B rating, up from a C
grade last year.


Pahokee Middle-Senior High
School, one of four schools in
Palm Beach County that under-
went a restructuring plan this
year, benefitted from the extra
help, receiving a C rating, up
from a D last year.
Pioneer Park Elementary
School, which was a B-rated
school last year, received an A
rating this time. It's the second
time in the grading system's 10-
year history that Pioneer Park
achieved that mark, the last com-
ing in 2006.
Glade View Elementary


School, which received its first-
ever A rating last year, moved
down to a B. Though that many
not sound like progress from the
surface, it is the only school in
the Glades area that achieved ad-
equate yearly progress (AYP).
To earn the benchmark, a
school must have at least 95 per-
cent of its students testing satis-
factorily in reading and math, At
least 58 percent of those students
have to be at or above grade lev-
el in reading, while 62 perce41 of
the students must be on grade
level in math.

Fourth of July Weekend in Pahokee


Budget constraints
forced city to move
fireworks display to
July 5

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE How about
some fireworks on July 5, the
day after Independence Day?
From the surface, the idea
may not make much sense
since the city has historically
hosted the display on July 4.
But as budget constraints are
forcing municipalities to think
creatively in providing services
for its citizens, the close-knit
city had no choice.
As Pahokee community and
economic development direc-
tor Ted Roberts put it, difficult
choices must be made based
on stringent economic times.
"We put forth a sincere ef-


fort to ensure that we recog-
nized appropriately the Fourth
of July," Mr. Roberts said. "We
knew that the fireworks display
was going to be the day after
the Fourth, but we wanted to
celebrate and commemorate
the birth of our nation in ev-
ery way possible within our
means."
Specifically, the city had only
$5,000 in the budget set aside
for the fireworks display, ac-
cording to Mr. Roberts.
The city received that fund-
ing from Palm Beach County
Commissioner Jess Santamaria
on June 27, just one week prior
to the 232nd anniversary of the
United States.
With only one week to pre-
pare for the annual fireworks
display at the marina, city of-
ficials were forced to scramble
for a fireworks display provid-
er.
The city's first choice was
from New Castle, Penn.-based


Zambelli Inc., which gave them
a deadline of June 10 to have
a contract ready for their ser-
vices.
What happened, according
to Mr. Roberts, was that the
city couldn't meet the unspeci-
fied shipping deadlines due to
the lack of funding in a timely
manner.
So, the city had to turn to
Plan B, which was to use Pyro-
tecnico Inc. The shift in plans
turned out to be a good one be-
cause the city was given three
choices as to when it'll have the
event.
If the fireworks display was
to occur on either July 3 or July
5, the city's cost would be set
at $5,000.
However, having the event
on the Fourth of July this year
would set the city back at
$15,000.
So, obviously, in a cost-cut-

Robbery attempt at Jewelry Store


Suspects shot into
building, shattering
a glass door

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Area busi-
nesses beware -- an armed rob-
bery can happen at any given
time.
Recently, Osvaldo Jewelry
Store, located on 116 S.W. Ave.
B, became the latest victim of a
robbery attempt.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
on Thursday, June 26 at about
10:50 a.m., deputies were ad-


vised that two men entered
the jewelry store in an armed
robbery attempt. Each carried
an assault rifle. One of the sus-
pects was reportedly also carry-
ing a black bag.
Almost immediately af-
ter the two suspects entered
the store, the door reportedly
locked behind them, locking
them inside.
To get out, the suspects re-
portedly shot several rounds,
shattering the jewelry store's
glass door as they exited the
facility.
An innocent bystander, who
was not identified, was report-
edly hit by some of the glass
but was treated on the scene


by paramedics.
The sheriff's office said that
both suspects entered a brown
or beige sedan driven by anoth-
er man and left the area.
The Palm Beach County
Violent Crimes Task Force and
crime scene investigators have
been notified about the two
suspects, who were reportedly
seen wearing blue shorts and
black hooded sweaters at the
time.
So far, the suspects have not
been located as the sheriff's
office is currently investigating
this case.
Tipsters are urged to call
Crime Stoppers at 1-800-458-
TIPS with any information.


At Glade View, 62 percent of
its students are at grade level or
above in reading and 65 percent
of the students achieved that in
math.
Perhaps the most surprising
news came out of Lake Shore
Middle School in Belle Glade,
which received a C rating, up
from a D last year.
Other schools did not fare as
well.
Gove Elementary School,
which was the area's highest rat-
ed school for the past six years
with its A rating, received its first


C rating since 2001,. It narrowly
missed out on achieving AYP, as
the passing rate in reading and
math was at 57 and 61 percent,
respectively.
Belle Glade Elementary
School has been rated a C school
for the second consecutive
year. Both Pahokee Elementary
School and Rosenwald Elemen-
tary School received a D rating
for the second consecutive year.

County schools that received an

Hialeah woman



killed in U.S. 27



crash


7-year-old boy
reportedly suffered
only minor injuries

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
LAKE HARBOR A 45-year-
old Hialeah woman was killed
on Thursday, June 26 in a single
vehicle wreck on U.S. Highway
27.
Crews from Hendry and
Palm Beach County tended to
the scene, which took place at
approximately 11:43 a.m.
According to information
provided by the Florida High-
way Patrol (FHP), Maria Isabel
Betancourt was driving north-
bound on U.S. 27 in the left
lane.
As the woman, who was
driving a 2005 Ford Focus sedan,
was heading toward Clewiston,
her vehicle reportedly drifted
into the center grass median,
this after swerving to the right
and then to the left.
The accident occurred ap-
proximately six and a half miles
north of South Bay, which is
near Lake Harbor.
The vehicle subsequently
entered the grass median and
overturned several times before
crashing on the southbound
side of the highway's outside
shoulder, the crash report said.
Crews from the Palm Beach


County Fire Rescue and a Hen-
dry County EMS ambulance
were unable to help the driver
and she was pronounced dead
on the scene, according to
Craig Prusansky, a captain of
the county's fire rescue.
What the crews also found
was that the passenger, .a
7-year-old Hialeah boy, sur-
vived the crash with only minor
injuries. He was reportedly lay-
ing down in the back seat prior
to the crash.
- The captain said it must be- +
noted, however, that the Hen-
dry County EMS ambulance
tended to the crash first after
paramedics transported a pa-
tient from another call.
"The young boy had crawled
through one of the windows,"
Captain Prusansky said. "After
the Palm Beach County units'
arrived, they took over care of
the young boy."
The boy was later airlifted
via Trauma Hawk to the Delray
Medical Center for observa-
tion.
The woman was wearing a
seatbelt prior to the fatal crash.
This incident is currently un-
der further investigation by the
highway patrol.

Vita Health Program recognized at Safety Net Awards


Submitted to INI
Debi Gavras, left, Core Operations Officer of the Palm Beach County Health Care District,
and Dwight Chenette, chief executive officer, were proud to announce recognition of the suc-
cess of the Vita Health Program.


SANTA FE, NEW MEXICO,
June 26, 2008 At the annual con-
ference of the National Associa-
tion of Public Hospitals (NAPH)
today, the Health Care District of
Palm Beach County's Vita Health
coverage program received rec-
ognition at the organization's an-
nual Safety Net awards ceremony
in Santa Fe.
The NAPH awards program
recognizes public hospitals and
health systems that deliver exem-
plary service and results in a vari-
ety of areas.
The Vita Health program was
recognized in the category of
Community Engagement.
As noted in the award an-
nouncement, the Health Care
District has more than doubled
the membership of the affordable
health coverage 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 Exec-


utive Officer, Dwight D. Chenette,
MBA, MPH said: "Covering the
uninsured is an increasingly chal-
lenging problem nationwide. In
Palm Beach County about twen-
ty 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 designed
to meet the needs particularly
of lower-income workers who
are not eligible for programs like
Medicaid but who can't afford pri-
vate health insurance."
Vita Health provides inpatient
acute care, emergency room ser-
vices, outpatient surgery, diagnos-
tic services, primary care services,
specialty physician services, and
prescription drugs.
To be eligible, residents must
be between the ages of 1 and 65,
uninsured during the preceding


six months, and meet certain in-
come requirements.
The monthly premiums range
from $25 to $100 per individual
with co-payments as low as $5
per office visit.
The District funds approxi-
mately two-thirds of the monthly
premium.
In July 2007 the District com-
menced a community engage-
ment campaign with the goal of
doubling Vita Health member-
ship.
Multiple channels and media
were used: direct mail, print ads
in different languages, bus de-
cals, posters in medical offices
and drug stores, informational
displays in shopping malls and
stores, and tables at health fairs.
Since the campaign began,
Vita Health membership has
more than doubled.
Ms. Debi Gavras, Core Opera-
tions Officer of the Health Care
District who oversees its.Managed
Care programs, including Vita


Health, adds: "In the period since
we submitted the application for
the award, the Florida State Leg-
islature has approt ed raisinI the
ceiling of income eligibility trb
200 to 300 percent of the Federal
Poverty Line for programs like
Vita Health.
That means many more Palm
Beach County residents pqten-
tially may qualify.
We intend to continue ;our
community and business engage-
ment 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 uncom-
pensated care, emergency room
overcrowding, and more expen-
sive 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 encourages
timely preventive care.
A recent Florida health insur-
ance study found that half of the
uninsured either delay or simply
don't get needed medical care,
dte to lack of coverage and cost.
Nine of the top ten reasons
Vita Health members visited their
primary care physicians were re-
lated to preventive care services.
Health Care District Board
Chair Jonathan Satter noted:
"Providing solutions for the unin-
sured is a complex challenge and
one that the Health Care District
has made a priority for more than
fifteen years.
Early in its existence, the Dis-
trict structured a free health cov-
erage program called Coordinat-
ed Care that helps approximately
30,000 residents who are not eli-
gible for Medicaid and whose in-
come is below 150 percent of the
Federal Poverty Level.

However, the number of un-
insured continues to increase,
particularly at income levels ex-
ceeding eligibility requirements
for Coordinated Care.
More than half of the unin-
sured 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 peo-
ple go without health insurance is
the cost.
To give them an affordable
option the Health Care District
launched Vita Health.
The majority 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 tar-
geted populations.
The District spends approxi-
mately $85 million a year on de-
livering health coverage solutions
in Palm Beach County.
In addition to these managed
care programs, the Health Care
District serves the community
through other core programs,
including a maternity program, a
rural public hospital, a nationally
acclaimed Trauma System, a net-
work of pharmacies, a rehabilita-
tion and skilled-nursing center,
and clinics with a dedicated nurse
in more than 170 public schools.

Local author releases new book


The old days of Florida come
alive in a new book by Nancy
Dale, long time Palmdale resident
and native Miamian.
Two hundred years ago, Pio-
neer "cow hunters and huntress-
es" in search of a better place to
grow their families and raise cattle
forged their way into the heart of
wild Florida.
They survived by wit and for-
titude and drove down stakes in
the unforgiving land.
Forging ahead in covered
wagons, alongside of their cattle,
they carved rutted trails through
hundreds of miles of pine forest,
trudged through marshy swamps,
black clouds of mosquitoes, bat-
tled hurricanes, pestilence, and
disease to settle on Florida's rich
prairie grassland.
These rugged men and wom-
en cleared and cultivated the land,
grew crops, put up clapboard
houses, and rounded-up "scrub
cattle" left by the 1500s Spanish
explorers to breed and improve
their herd.
The pioneer families passed on
their heritage through generations

Nancy Dale writes about the old days of Florida in her new
book.


of hard work and persistence.
As pioneer Myakka rancher
Norman Proveaux put it, "True
'cow hunters' are bred not
made."


Indiantown "cow huntress"
Iris Wall, adds her own. quip, she
is a still a "Florida cracker with a
little extra salt!"
These stories are the true ad-


ventures of wild Florida as toud
by the pioneer "cow hunters arid
huntresses" who lived it and gave
birth to the Florida cattle indus-
try.
This new book is the third in
a series of true stories of a disap-
pearing lifestyle and culture in
Florida.
An emphasis on glades county
history is recorded in: Where the
Swallowtail Kite Soars: The Lega-
cies of Glades County, Florida and
the vanishing wilderness.

Bronson urges vaccinations for horses


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging horse owners to get
their animals vaccinated as the
number of Eastern Equine En-
cephalitis (EEE) cases is on the
rise.
As of June 30, there are four
times as many EEE cases com-
pared to the same time period
during the two previous years.
There have been 45 confirmed
cases covering 21 counties as far
south as Palm Beach County.
In the first six months of 2007,
there were 11 cases and the same
number in 2006.
"We have had two relatively
quiet years in a row and I am con-
cerned that horse owners may
get complacent and delay having
their animals properly vaccinat-


ed," Bronson said. "But with the
rainy season starting to resume,
we are likely to see a lot more
mosquitoes than we have during
the two years of drought."
EEE is a viral disease that af-
fects the central nervous system
and is transmitted to horses by
infected mosquitoes.
Signs of the virus include fever,
listlessness, stumbling, circling,
coma and usually death.
The disease is fatal in horses in
90 percent of the cases.
The first case of West Nile Virus
(WNV) has also been detected in
a horse in Madison County.
Bronson says the majority of
cases of EEE and WNV cap be
prevented through proper vacci-
nations against mosquito-borne
illnesses and he is reminding
horse owners that now is the time


to take action.
Horse owners are urged to
check with their veterinarian to
make sure their animals have re-
ceived current vaccinations and
booster shots against WNV and
EEE, and that these shots are kept
up to date.
There are ongoing efforts to
keep the mosquito populations
down but, because there is no
foolproof method to prevent the
diseases, vaccinations are critical.
Bronson says EEE can also be
contracted by people and is often
deadly.
Floridians and visitors, espe-
cially in rural areas that don't
have regular mosquito control
programs, can take simple steps
to protect themselves against
mosquito-borne diseases by fol-
lowing a few simple steps:


-- Limit time outside during
dusk and dawn when mosqui-
toes are most active.
-- Wear light-colored, long-
sleeved shirts and long pants to
cover skin and reduce the chance
of being bitten when outside be-
tween dusk and dawn.
-- Eliminate standing water
in yards, such as in birdbaths,
kiddie pools, old tires and other
receptacles, as stagnant water is
an excellent breeding ground for
mosquitoes.
-- Use insect repellent that con-
tains DEET, which is an effective
repellent.
-- Keep window screens in
good repair.
-- Clean out rain gutters and
keep them unclogged to avoid
pockets of standing water.


Fuel charge adjustments passed onto FP&L customers


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Public Service Commission (PSC)
on Tuesday adjusted fuel charges
for three of' Florida's inveslor-
owned electric utilities; Florida
Power & Light Company (FPL),
Progress Energy Florida, Inc.
(Progress), and Florida Public
Utilities Company (FPUC).
The PSC reviews utilities' pro-
jected fuel costs annually in No-
vember and determines how the
fuel costs will be passed on to
customers.
If actual fuel costs are substan-
tially different from projected fuel
costs, the company can request
a mid-course adjustment, as did
FPL, Progress, and FPUC.
Florida's investor-owned utili-
ties are not allowed to earn a
profit on the cost of fuel used to
generate electricity.
If the PSC determines that a


company has recovered more
than it actually spent in. the previ-
ous year, the coming year's pro-
jecled fuel charges are reduced to
* refund that amount of over recov-
ery, including interest.
"We're seeing higher prices at
the grocery store, at the gas pump,
and in the fuels used to generate
electricity for our homes," said
PSC Chairman Matthew M. Carter
II.
"Fuel costs represent about
51 percent of a typical residential
electric bill, so we need to con-
serve daily to help reduce some of
the costs resulting from increased
fuel prices."
Here are the new fuel cost and
purchased power charges for the
three utilities:
Florida Power & Light Compa-
ny: Based on the new fuel charg-
es, the total monthly electric bill
for residential customers using


1,000 kwh will be $110.77, effec-
tive Aug. 4, 2008.
Progress Energy Florida, Inc.:
Based on the new fuel charges,
the.tolali monthly electric bilt. b if
residential customers using 1,000.
kwb will .be $110.59, effective
with the first billing cycle in Au-
gust 2008.
The Commission also voted to
eliminate the $3.61 per 1,000 kwh
storm cost recovery surcharge
after the last billing cycle in July
2008.
Florida Public Utilities (Mari-
anna): Based on the new fuel
charges, the total monthly elec-
tric bill for residential customers
using 1,000 kwh will be $123.45,
effective July 29.
Florida Public Utilities (Fernan-
dina Beach): Based on, the new
fuel charges, the total monthly
electric bill for residential cus-
tomers using 1,000 kwh will be


$116.44, effective July 29.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing, sure that Florida's consumers
receij,e their electric, natural ,gas,
telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable manner.
The PSC exercises regulatory
authority over utilities in the areas
of rate base/economic regulation;
competitive market oversight;
and monitoring of safety, reliabil-
ity, and service.

Is baptizing at an earl


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Recently I had a column, titled,
"Who Is Eligible For Baptism?"
Someone wrote an answer to
my column, titled, "Baptism: 'Let
The Children Come To Me; Do
Not Hinder Them.'
First, I sincerely believe what I
put in my column -is true and in
biblical context.
I believe that the Bible teaches
that only those old enough to re-
alize they have sinned, and have
come to believe the. Gospel, re-
pented of sin, confessed faith in
Christ, are eligible for Christian
Baptism.
Baptism is the immersion in
water of a penitent, confessing
believer in Jesus Christ, and is for
the remission of sins to receive
the Holy Spirit'.
The Lord adds such a one to
His Church. I further believe the
Bible teaches that those who have
not reached the age that they can
perceive the Gospel are innocent
and are safe.
They do not need salvation
since they have not sinned. Sin
being "the transgression of God's
Law" and "knowing to do good
and doing it not" (I John 3:4;
James 4:17).
I also believe that this person
who wrote a contrary article to


my position is sincere and be-
lieves that babies and those not
old enough to believe that are not
baptized, are lost and go to Hell.
This person believes that sprin-
kling of water on a candidate is
valid baptism.
I do not believe this position is
right, according to the teaching of
Jesus and His Apostles.
The Bible teaches that a per-
son can be sincere and be wrong.
Jesus said, "And ye shall know
the TRUTH, and the TRUTH shall
set you free" (John 8:22). Again,
He said, "Thy Word is Truth, 0
God."
This person said that I took
Ezekiel 18:20 out of context. This
I deny.
This verse teaches that God
does not hold a child responsible
for the sin of his parents. Read it
for yourself!
This person quoted only part
of what Jesus said in Matthew
19:14.
The part he quoted says in the
KJV, "But Jesus said, Suffer little
children, and forbid them not, to
come unto me:" The rest of the
verse says, "FOR OF SUCH IS THE
KINGDOM OF HEAVEN."
The children were not com-
ing to Jesus for baptism but for
blessing and Jesus said they were
already "OF THE KINGDOM OF
HEAVEN."
Read it for yourself! Jesus also


said in Matthew 18:3 "Except ye
be converted and BECOME AS
LITTLE CHILDREN, ye shall not
enter into the kingdom of Heav-
en.
I choose to believe what Jesus
said and not what the is person
said about little children!
This person also referred to
Psalm 51:5 as proof that babies
are born in sin.
This Psalm needs to be kept
in its context. It was written after
Nathan the prophet had come
to inform David of God's judg-
ment against him because of his
adultery with Bathsheba, and the
murder of Uriah, her husband.
David was feeling so low dbwn
and exaggerates his guilt.
He says that his Mother con-
ceived him in iniquity. That would
be his Mother's sin, not his.
When the baby that was born
as a result of this adulterous affair,
died at 7 days old, did David say
he had gone to Hell?
Read what he actually said in
II Samuel 12:23 "Can I bring him
back again? I SHALL GO TO HIM,
but he shall not return to me."
I believe that the scripture
teaches that this little innocent
baby went to Heaven and so did
David..
Jesus said to baptize "believ-
ers" in Mark 16:16, and "dis-
ciples" in Matthew 28:19. Babies
are neither!


y age a
The Bible teaches that there
are prerquisites to Baptism. 1.
Faith in the Gospel (Mark 16:15-
16; Matthew 28:19-20). 2. Repen-
tance of sin (Acts 2:38; 17:30-31).
3.Confession of Faith in Christ
(Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-10). 4.
The candidate must also un-
derstand at the'time of baptism
what he is doing in obeying the
Gospel (Romans 6:3-5; 16-18).
This person also said that the
conversions of the Philippian Jail-
er and Lydia and her household in
Acts 16 proved that infants were
baptized.
In the case of Lydia that AS-
SUMES several things: I.That
Lydia was married. 2. That she
had children. 3. That she had
them with her, since she was in a
foreign land on business. 4. That
among those children were in-
fants or those not old enough to
believe.
That is a lot of assumptions on
which to build a case! In the case
of the Philippian Jailer the scrip-
ture says in Acts 16:34 that the
whole family BELIEVED in God."
Not all families have young
children in them. Bishop Burnett
(Episcopal) in Exposition of the
39 Articles, Article 37, said, "There
is NO express precept, or rule,
given in .the New Testament for
the baptism of infants."
Dr. Wall (Episcopal) in "His-
tory of Infant Baptism", Introduc-


valid concern?


tion, page 1, said, "Among all the
persons that are recorded as bap-
tized by the Apostles, there is NO
express mention of any infant."
This person said that the Bible
doesn't say "Do it" or "Don't do
it."
What if I said concerning the
use of cocaine, the Bible doesn't
say "Do it" or "Don't do it," so you
can chose to "Do it."
In conclusion, let me answer
briefly the question: "SHOULD
YOUR BABY BE BAPTIZED?"
I1.f you baby can believe the
Gospel, then he should be bap-
tized (Mark 16:15-16; Acts 8:36-
40).
2.If your baby can repent, then
he should be baptized (Acts 2:38;
17:30-31).
3.If your baby can confess faith
in Jesus Christ, then he should
be baptized (Acts 8:37; Romans
10:9-10).
4.If you can find an example in


the Bible of any baby's baptism,
then yours should be baptized,
too.
5.If your baby is prepared
to bury the old man of sin and
arise to walk in newness of life,
he should be baptized (Romans
6:3-5; 15-18).
6.If your baby knows the Lord
and His Doctrines, then he should
be baptized (Hebrews 8:8-12).
It is my prayer that the unity
for which Jesus prayed is John 17
will become a reality.
But this unity will only come
when we follow the Apostles'
Teaching and not the teaching of
men (Mark 7:7-9).
Paul pleaded in I Cor. 1:10-13
that we all speak the same thing
and that there be no divisions
among us.
I am working and praying to
that end.


Trust in Him who holds our future


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In my first years of ministry, I
had a District Superintendent who
drilled into us that challenges and
changes are "opportunities to ex-
cel" for men and women of faith.
With tears in my heart, I called
him and stated that I had an "op-
portunity to excel" because the
Wesley House at Stetson Univer-
sity had been struck by lightning
and had burned down.
The reality was that I did not
think of the fire as an opportunity
to expel at the time.
There were a lot of heart aches
and times of high stress, a lot of
wondering what the future might
hold or even if there was going to
be a future.
It was a trial that brought
+ changes.
Nothing would ever be as it
was before.
And in some ways that was
good. I had taken up golf, and
knew just about every inch of the
golf course except the fair way!
When my clubs melted in the
fire, I took it as a sign from God
and have never taken up a golf
club since, except for putt-putt.
But more than a change in
spending time on the greens, it
caused us to re-examine our pur-
pose and focus on what we were
doing and where we were going.
The future was not secure as it


had been, and we had to step out
on faith and trust in God as we
worked on building and securing
what our new future was going to
be.
With the recent news about
U.S. Sugar, our communities are
faced with a change and a chal-
lenge.
Again I find myself in a com-
munity situation where we don't
know what the future holds, but
we know things will never be as
they were.
It is time again to trust in Him
who holds our future and act ac-
cordingly.
Pastor Chuck Pelham of New
Harvest Church expressed some
of these same thoughts in a letter
he shared with me.
It's addressed to the pastors
around the Lake, but it could be
to all men and women of faith:
Dear Fellow Servants of the
Lord, I am writing this letter to
you in a' response to the recent
news concerning U.S. Sugar.
I am sure by now you have
heard many things that have been
circulated in our community by
many people who are fearful and
full of worry.
I believe as the ministers of
this city it is our responsibility to
stand in our pulpits and declare
with unity and with authority that
this city is a prosperous place and
our greatest days are ahead of us


"I would definitely use this hospital again."


and not behind us.
This should not come as a
surprise to us but rather as an an-
swer to prayer.
For many years churches have
stood and believed God for a
move of God in this city and re-
gion and many of us have prayed
for God to do a new thing.
Well the new thing has ar-
rived.
It may not have come in the
package that we thought it would
come in but nevertheless it's
here.
And if it's really a new thing
then it must be a new thing -
meaning something that we have
never seen.
Isa 43:19 "For I am about to do
a brand-new thing. See, I have al-
ready begun! Do you not see it? I
will make a pathway through the
wilderness for my people to come
home. I will create rivers for them
in the desert!" (NLT)
I believe not only is this a great
opportunity for our city but for
churches as well.
This is an hour for our church-
es to stand tall and begin to shine
in the face of impending dark-
ness.
People need to hear that God
has a plan for this City and re-
gion.
"He has a plan to give us a
future and a hope." (Jeremiah
29:11).

Letter to the editor


Dear Editor:
During an election year when
access to health care is the sec-
ond most important domestic is-
sue cited by Americans, incredibly
Sen. Mel Martinez voted against
legislation that would ensure sta-
bility in the Medicare program for
Florida's elderly and disabled pa-
tients.
That vote means that, as of July
1, physicians who care for Medi-
care patients saw their payment
slashed by 10.6 percent. Without
Congressional action to rectify the
situation, Medicare will cut an ad-
ditional 5 percent from physician
pay in 2009, according to a June


30, announcement by Centers for
Medicare and Medicaid, the feder-
al agency that oversees Medicare.
The impact of these cuts threat-
ens elderly and disabled patients'
access to health care because it
further drives family physicians
toward financial insolvency at a
time we're already struggling with
a shortage of primary care doc-
tors.
In December, the Medicare
Payment Advisory Commission
reported that three out of 10 Medi-
care patients had trouble finding
a new primary care physician. In
March, the Medical Group Man-
agement Association reported


that nearly 24 percent of all phy-
sicians had begun limiting or not
accepting new Medicare patients;
46 percent would limit or stop
accepting new Medicare patients
with implementation of the 10.6
percent pay cut that just took ef-
fect.
Since 2001, family physicians
have worked tirelessly on be-
half of Medicare patients, even
as Medicare compensation for
their services stagnated and they
struggled with 20 percent inflation
in costs to keep their offices open.
No small business as most fam-
ily physician practices are can
sustain that kind of loss and re-


main open to care for people.
Sen. Martinez must return to
Washington and .support Medi-
care payment levels that enable
family physicians to keep their
doors open. The Senator must
vote yes on limiting debate and
yes on passage of the Medicare
bill, H.R. 6331. Without such a-
vote, we're all at risk of losing our
health care. An insurance card has
no value unless there's a doctor in
the house.
Sincerely,
Cyneetha Strong, M.D.
Board Chair
Florida Academy, of Family
Physicians

Plan now for

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

Hard times: Ain't it awful' or 'Put out into the deep?'


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Years ago, I attended a confer-
; ence at the University of Florida
-entitled "Crust over the Volcano."
It had nothing to do with vol-
canoes, but it was about what
happens to people.
The premise was that a peo-
'ple become comfortable in their'
'routines and habits, with their fa-
vorite brands, choices of automo-
,'biles, their neighborhoods, and
on the job.
Something Will come along to
'shake them up, and they'll com-
plain "Ain't it awful?" and have all
sorts of reactions to what is going
on.
Sometimes the reactions are
helpful, sometimes they're not.
The presenters at the confer-
ence maintained that our growth
is in the process or reorganizing,
that takes place when we deal
with making a new and different
life after the calm of former pat-
terns is shattered.
We olive, keeping the "crust


over the volcano" that we don't
want to break through and dis-
turb our quiet, or relatively quiet
life.
Then, one day, all of the explo-
sive energy breaks through when
the crust gives way to forces and
pressures usually beyond our
control.
Then comes something that
can be very good; we learn that
the end did not come and that
doors opened and new possibili-
ties were there when we searched
for them.
Richard Nixon was turned
down by a Wall Street law firm
when he applied for a job there.
He might have become a me-
diocre attorney if they accepted
him, and no doubt he was disap-
pointed when his application for
the job wasn't accepted.
A great surgeon told of his be-
ing turned down by one of the
smaller medical schools.
His disappointment was con-
veyed to his father and he was
ready to "throw in the towel."
His father suggested that per-
haps he didn't apply to a medical
school that was good enough,


and he was later accepted at the
Harvard medical School.
Simon(Peter) is a fisherman in
the New Testament and frustrated
with catching nothing all night
(Luke 5:1lff).
It was time to recognize that it
would be one of those nights and
go home.
The Lord made an outlandish
suggestion (v.4) "Put out into the
deep and let down your nets for
a catch."
After some grumbling, (the
crust was still over his volcano),
he decides to ignore the failure
and go fishing one more time.
All of these people, and thou-
sands of others like them, have to
reorganize.
It comces on the basis of bad
news or a bad break and will
shake them out of their ordinary
lives and daily plans.
The "comfortable rut" is gone.
Each had to learn something
about themselves; they were
capable of more than they gave
themselves credit for being able
to do.
The reorganization brings a
cource of enw strength and new


HRMC explains fevers in kids


i If you're a parent, you've prob-
i.ably experienced this scenario:
You wake up in the middle of the
,'night to find your child flushed,
hot and sweaty. Your little one's
forehead feels warm. You imme-
diately suspect a fever, but are un-
sure of what to do next. Should
you get out the thermometer or
call the emergency room?
In healthy kids, fevers usually
don't indicate anything serious.
Although it can be frightening
,,when your child's temperature
rises, a fever causes no harm and
can actually be a good thing it's
often the body's way of fighting
infections both bacterial and
,viral.
Fever occurs when the body's
,.internal thermostat raises the
;body temperature above its nor-
mal level. A normal temperature
is about 98.6 F, when taken orally
(by mouth). Temperatures taken
rectally (by rectum) usually run
one degree higher than those
'taken orally.

What causes fever?
It's important to remember
that fever by itself is not an illness.
It's usually a symptom of an un-
derlying problem. Fever has sev-
,eral potential causes:
Infection: Most fevers are
caused by infection or other ill-
ness. Fever helps the body fight
infections by stimulating natural
defense mechanisms.
*Overdressing: Infants, espe-
cially newborns, may get fevers if
they're over-bundled or in a hot
environment because they don't
regulate their body temperature
as well as older children.
*Immunizations: Babies and
children sometimes get low-grade
fevers after getting vaccinated.
*Teething Although teething
may cause a slight rise in body
temperature, it's probably not the
cause if a child's temperature is
,higher than 100 F.

"When can a fever be
a sign of something
,serious?
In the past, doctors advised
,treating a fever on the basis of

temperature alone. Now, how-
ever, they recommend consider-
ing both the temperature and the
child's overall condition.
Kids whose temperatures are
lower than 102 F often don't re-
quire medication, unless they're
uncomfortable. There's one im-
portant exception to this rule: If
you have an infant 3 months or
younger with a rectal tempera-
ture of 100.4 F or higher, call your
doctor or go to the emergency
room immediately. Even a slight
fever can be a sign of a potentially
serious infection in very young
infants.
If you child is between three
months and three years old and
has a fever of 102.2 F or higher,
call a physician to see if your child
needs to be seen. For older chil-
dren, take behavior and activity
levels into consideration. Your
child is probably NOT serious if
he/she is:
still interested in playing
eating and drinking well
alert and smiling
has normal skin color
loks, well, when ltempera-
ture comes down. ,
Don't worry too much if your
child has a fever, but doesn't want
to eat. This is common with infec-
tions that cause fever. More im-
portantly, make certain your child
drinks and urinates normally.

How can I know if my
child has a fever?
Sometimes a gentle kiss on
the forehead or a hand placed
lightly on your child's skin is of-
ten enough to give you a hint that
your child has a fever. The most
reliable method is using a ther-
mometer. Your child has a fever if
his/her temperature is at or above
one of these levels.
100.4 F measured rectally
99.5 F measured orally
99 F measured under the
arm
Because fevers may rise and
fall, a child with fever might expe-
rience chills, as the body tries to
generate additional heat and as its
temperature begins to rise.
Sometimes kids with fever
breathe faster than usual and


may have a higher heart rate. You
should call the doctor if your child
is having difficulty breathing, is
breathing faster than normal, or
continues to breathe fast after the
fever comes down.

Helping your child to
feel better
Here are, ways to alleviate
symptoms that accompany a fe-
ver, which makes your child feels
uncomfortable or fussy:
*Give acetaminophen or ibu-
profen, based on the package rec-
ommendation for age or weight.
If you don't know the recom-
mended dosage, or if your child is
younger than two years, call the
doctor to find out how much to
give. Remember that fever medi-
cation will usually temporarily
bring a temperature down, but it
will not return it to normal and it
won't treat the underlying reason
for the fever. NEVER give aspirin
to a child, due to its association
with Reye syndrome, a rare and
potentially fatal disease. Infants
twho' are under two" months ;old
should not be given medication
for fever without being evaluated
by a doctor. If your child has any
medical problems, check with a
physician to see which medica-
tion is best to use.
*Giving a- sponge bath can
make your child more comfort-
able. and help bring the fever
down. Use only lukewarm wa-
ter; cool water may cause shiv-
ering, which actually raises the
body temperature. NEVER use ice
packs/cold baths (they can cause
chills that may raise body tem-
perature).
Dress your child in light-
weight clothing and cover with a
light sheet or blanket. Overdress-
ing and over-bundling can prevent
body heat from escaping and can
cause a temperature to rise.
Offer plenty of fluids to avoid
dehydration a fever will cause a
child to lose fluids more rapidly.
If your child is also vomiting
and/or has diarrhea, ask the doc-
tor if you should give an electro-
lyte solution made especially for
kids.

tion and ability to find a part of
one's self that was not known
before.
Nixon became a president, a
worried student became a great

sometimes quite literally, into
new places with new opportuni-

Radio amateurs in national event


Sam Thomas, W3ALE,
PIO, Big Lake Amateur
Radio Club
Local radio amateurs par-
ticipated in the North American
practice drills held annually from
the local Emergency Operations
Station at John Boy Auditorium in
Clewiston.
The American Radio Relay
League sponsors an annual prac-
tice drill to test communications
capabilities across the U. S. and
Canada in preparation for emer-
gency operations in the events of
natural or man-made disasters.
This year, the drill was from 2
p.m. Saturday, June 28 to 2 p.m.
Sunday, June 29 and involved ra-


dio stations that operated under
emergency conditions.
Stations operated with battery
power, generators, solar panels,
or any other means other than
the usual "plug-it-into-the-wall"
power.
Many of the radio operators
ran from stations in emergency
locations; setting up tents and rig-
ging antennas from nearby trees,
operating from hurricane shel-
ters, running stations from mo-
bile locations such as specially -
equipped'motor homes, or other
temporary locations. Jim Sparks,

ordintor for Hendry County, and

ated the 100 watt station from
John Boy auditorium, putting out
signals on both High Frequencies
(HF) and Very High Frequencies
(VHF).
The Auditorium if equipped
with a generator to provide pow-
er in cases of emergencies and
the stations is designated as a lo-
cal emergency station.
The 100-watt HF transmitter
communicated with stations from
the entire-gulf coast region; from
Texas to North Florida, and as far
away as Ohio.
The VHF transmitter was able
to raise repeater stations around
the lake and will provide contact
with neighboring communities as
the need arises.


The drill demonstrated the ca-
pabilities of our radio station; en-
abling the Clewiston shelter to be
able to get messages in and out as
the need arises.
That was the purpose of the
drill and Jim Sparks, the local
county Emergency Coordinator
said "We've demonstrated our
abilities to be on the air-that was
our purpose, and we did it."
Interested persons are invited
to contact the Big Lake Amateur
Radio Club, which meets the last
Monday of each month at Saint
Martin's Church, Clewiston.

Pictures of the grandchildren... oh boy!


By Diane Tiunmons
INI Florida
It's no secret that this column
is directed toward seniors in our
community and that many of us
have children that live in other
states. That probably means you
have grandkids out there that are
growing up fast. So you welcome
pictures of them. Or perhaps you
want to see you daughter s new
house or car!
If you are getting email .with
these welcome photos attached,
rou want to be able to see and
eep the images so you can look
at them often or even keep them
organized by year.
All email programs are differ-


ent and each presents the attached
file differently, but they still have
enough in common that I should
be able to guide you through the
basics.
First, a note of caution. We all
know about the bad guys out there
who are also sending email to us.
Only open attachments from peo-
ple that you know! Otherwise you
could find yourself battling a nasty
computer virus. That said, lets get
on with it.
There are usually two ways of
getting your email:
an email program that is set
up to download your email for you
such as Outlook or Netscape mail,
or


navigating to your email pro-
vider's web page using your web
browser, e.g., Internet Explorer.
Some email programs display
the photo as soon as you open
the email. If yours does that, great;
you get to see the photo immedi-
ately. But, what if you want to save
that picture? Put your mouse ar-
row directly over the picture and
right click. That brings up a list of
items that will let you take further
action with the picture. The most
commonly picked option is "Save
Picture As...." And this is the one
you want to pick. This command
will bring up a dialog box that lets
you save your picture. Don't get
mouse happy and' click "Save"


just yet. There are some important
decisions to be made here. At the
top of the box you will see a line
that's called "Save in." It will prob-
ably already have a folder desig-
nated; perhaps My Pictures. Make
note of that folder name, because
that is where your picture can be
found in the future. Also important,
near the bottom of the box is a line
called "file name." This line already
has a name there, but it may not
describe the photo very well. Who
cares about DSC000295? You will
want to change that to something
descriptive, such as "Billy2008."
Now click Save.
If your email program is the
other kind that doesn't display the


picture in the email, you will go
through a different process. Usu-
ally, there is a spot somewhere
in the email where the file name
of the attachment is displayed. It
may be near the top of the email or
you may have to scroll all the way
to the bottom of the screen. Find
that file name and left click it with
your mouse. You will probably get
a box on your screen that asks if
you want to open the image or
save it. My choice is usually to save
because then you will be keeping
the picture on your computer to
look at later. The save procedure
is the same as described above
and you will get a box that lets you
determine where the photo will


be saved and lets you name the
photo. If you choose "Open," your
computer will try to locate the best-
method of opening your photo. It
may open in Windows Picture and
Fax Viewer which is built into your
operating system. Whatever appli-
cation your computer uses to open
the photo will always give you the
option to save it.
I hope you enjoy your photos
that come via email; after all, isn't
that why email was invented?
I welcome your questions or
comments; email them to dtim-
mons@newszap.com.


When college students need extra help


By John Lough
The American
Counseling Association
What effect might a learning
disability have on a student's abil-
ity to succeed in college?
It's a question that's often ig-
nored in the excitement of head-
ing off to college, but it's one that
should seriously be considered by
many students and their parents.
Fortunately, it's a question that
most colleges have begun. to ad-
dress in recent years. But while
the majority of colleges today of-


fer, at no cost, special programs,
tutoring and counseling to assist
students with learning disabilities
and special needs, it's still the stu-
dent's responsibility to seek out
needed help.
Far too often students, and
their parents, are reluctant to ac-
knowledge the problem, feeling
that admitting a learning disability
will have them labeled as "slow,"
not college ready, and less intel-
ligent than their peers.
The reality, however, is that
learning disabilities most com-
monly coexist with average to


superior intelligence. Learning
disabilities appear to result from
some neurological impairment
that affects how someone re-
ceives, perceives, processes, re-
tains and expresses information,
not from lack of intelligence. Stu-
dents with learning disabilities
can learn, they just don't learn
like other students.
Someone with a learning dis-
ability may take longer to decode
words when reading, or may
have a limited attention span that
makes it harder to stick to a task,
and may require re-reading mate-


rial several times in order to com-
prehend it.
In high school such problems
are easier to hide or miss. Stu-
dents',compensate by putting in
.extra study time and getting help
from parents and friends. Rather
than seeing a learning disability,
the student's academic struggles
may be attributed to being bored
or not applying himself.
College, however, is a much
more demanding environment.
For a college student with a
known, or suspected learning
disability, it's essential to talk to


a counselor at the college to help
diagnose the extent of the prob-
lem and to identify available help.
From tutoring help to selecting
professors willing to help stu-
dents needing extra assistance,
most schools have a variety of
free programs to help their stu-
dents succeed.
Being unwilling to admit to a
learning disability isn't a sign of
strength, but rather just a bad de-
cision that will make college work
much more difficult and frustrat-
ing, and that can lead to failure.
There have always been col-


lege students with learning dis-
abilities. Those who. identify their
problems and take advantage of
free available help are the ones
who succeed and get the most
out of their college experience.
"The Counseling Corner" is
provided as a. public service by
the American Counseling Associa-
tion, the nation's largest organiza-
tion of counseling professionals.

profession at the ACA web site,

Florida receives $18 million 'Gear Up Grant'


TALLAHASSEE Beginning
this fall, low-income students
at nine schools in four Florida
school districts will have an excit-
ing new opportunity to prepare
for postsecondary education. The
U.S. Department of Education has
awarded an $18 million. GEAR UP
(Gaining Early Awareness and
Readiness for Undergraduate Pro-
grams) grant to Florida to support
early college awareness and read-
iness for low-income students.


"Postsecondary instruction is
an essential component for suc-
cess in today's highly competitive
global marketplace,' said Educa-
tion Commissioner Eric J. Smith.
"The GEAR UP grant will help
build dreams and provide the
means for students to consider a
college education."
GEAR UP is a six year discre-
tionary grant that supports early
college awareness and prepara-
tion activities for low-income stu-


dents in grades seven through 12.
It is specifically designed to help
middle and high school students
handle more rigorous and ad-
vanced coursework to better pre-
pare them for college. The grant
also includes a large parent and
student awareness component
that explains the college experi-
ence, clarifies college academic
and financial requirements, and
invalidates the culture that low-
income students cannot attend


college.
The districts and schools par-
ticipating in the GEAR UP grant
are Gadsden County (Carter-Par-
ramore, James A. Shanks Middle
School, Havana Middle School,
East Gadsden High School, West
Gadsden High School), Jefferson
.County (Jefferson Middle/High
School), Leon County (Nims Mid-

Florida selected to implement school improvement program


TALLAHASSEE-Florida is one
of six states selected to participate
in the U.S. Department of Educa-
tion's differentiated accountability
pilot program. The pilot program
allows Florida to create a tiered
approach to address required in-
terventions for Title I schools that
have not made Adequate Yearly
Progress (AYP) under the No
Child Left Behind (NCLB) Act for
two or more years. Florida's se-
lection into the program is based
on a proposal that links state and
federal accountability systems
to identify schools that need fo-
cused preventive measures, those
in need of more serious correc-
tive action, and those that require


intensive intervention such as re-
structuring or closure.
"Under this pilot program,
schools in Florida that miss a few
AYP criteria can easily be distin-
guished from schools exhibiting
widespread areas of deficiency,"
said Education Commissioner
Eric J. Smith. "This will give us
more flexibility in our improve-
ment and intervention strategies
for these schools, and allow our
state and federal accountability
systems to work in a complemen-
tary fashion."
Participation in the pilot pro-
gram allows Florida to reclas-
sify its Title I schools that do not
achieve AYP into three main im-


provement levels based on the
school's letter grade, percentage
of AYP requirements met, and the
number of years it has not made
AYP. While this reclassification
does not change federal or state
accountability requirements, it
does allow a more accommo-
dating approach to implement-
ing corrective actions for these
schools. The three types of im-
provement levels are:
Preventive: Schools at this lev-
el are in their first four years of not
making AYP and must implement
varying levels of focused preven-
tative measures to correct specific
issues. This category is subdivided
into "A," "B" and "C" schools that


have met 80 percent or more of
AYP criteria and schools that have
met less than 80 percent of AYP
criteria, including all "D" and "F"
schools. It is anticipated that "A,"
"B" and "C" schools that meet at
least 80 percent of AYP criteria
will require less stringent levels of
assistance than the other schools
in this category.
Corrective: Schools at this level
have failed to achieve AYP for five
or more years and require more
serious corrective action in order
to resolve persistent weaknesses.
This category is subdivided into
"A," "B" and "C" schools that
have met 80 percent or more of
AYP criteria and schools who


have met less than 80 percent of
AYP criteria, including all "D" and
"F" schools. It is anticipated that
all schools in this category will
require substantial, targeted as-
sistance in order to successfully
meet AYP requirements.
Intensive: These schools have
failed to achieve 'AYP for five or
more years in addition to dem-
onstrating severe, long-standing
reading and mathematics-based
deficiencies. They require the
most intensive intervention meth-
ods such as restructuring and clo-
sure.
The Florida Department of Ed-
ucation will begin working with
schools and districts on program


implementation and improve-
ment strategies following the
release of 2007-08 school grade
and AYP results. Full implementa- _
tion is expected to be in place for
the 2008-09 school year. For more

ated accountability pilot program,

Bronson warns homeowners to check out termite contracts


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
sori is urging homeowners to
take the time to investigate and
educate themselves about pest
control companies they may be
considering for termite protec-
tion. His warning comes as some
areas of the state are experiencing
drywood termite infestations.
While subterranean, termites
cause the majority of damage to


homes, drywood termites can
also be destructive. Since dry-
wood termites do not need to
maintain contact with the soil,
they should be treated by tent fu-
migation or liquid treatments ap-
plied directly to the infested lum-
ber. Licensed pest management
professionals have the expertise
to inspect, buildings and treat
them to prevent an infestation or
provide treatment when the in-
sects are found.


* Termite control companies are
required to provide written con-
tracts before treating for termites
and to clearly inform customers
as to what type of termites their
contract covers subterranean or
drywood, or both. Homeowners
also need to read the fine print
and find out exactly what the con-
tract covers. The contract should
specify what the company will do
to protect your home and wheth-
er they will treat, re-treat, or repair


any damage if a termite infesta-
tion occurs. Pest control compa-
nies are legally obligated to abide
by the terms of the contract.
The Florida Department of
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices regulates and licenses pest
control companies and conducts
regular inspections to ensure the
businesses are adhering to the
rules and regulations governing
pesticides and pest control. Con-
sumers can contact the depart-


ment at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-
435-7352) to find out whether a
pest control company is properly
licensed, to find out how many
consumer complaints have been
filed against a particular business
and to learn about the various
types of termite control contracts.
Most pest control operations
in Florida are licensed and have
the proper training. But there are
unlicensed companies in opera-
tion, and it is important to check


out any businesses before sign-
ing a contract. Commissioner
Bronson's Division of Agricultural
Environmental Services conducts
sweeps throughout the state to
find and shut down illegal opera-
tors who may put people in dan-
ger by misusing chemicals.

Bronson issues propane cylinder advisory


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son wants to get the facts out
about concerns that consumers
may be exposed to dangerous
propane cylinders.
The problem is the use of an-
hydrous ammonia with propane
cylinders, which damages them.
This product is used in the manu-


facture, of methamphetamines
("meth") and persons who
manufacture "meth" have been
known to use empty propane cyl-
inders to contain anhydrous am-
monia for use in this process. The
anhydrous ammonia deteriorates
the brass valving on the cylinders,
creating an extremely hazardous
situation. The valves on cylinders
which have been exposed will be


a bluish-green color and should
not be used. Consumers should
refuse to purchase any cylinder
which demonstrates these char-
acteristics, and should notify
their local emergency respond-
ers or police department if one is
found.
"The likelihood of a consumer
purchasing a tank that has been
exposed to anhydrous ammo-


nia is very low, but consumers
should be aware of the potential,"
Commissioner Bronson said.
"Propane companies in Florida
are aware of this issue and these
cylinders are unlikely to be refilled
and put back into circulation for
purchase."
But Bronson wants to make
people aware of the situation.
He is more concerned that peo-


pie may find discarded cylinders
and unknowingly handle them.
The Department's Division of
Standards,. Bureau of Liquefied
Petroleum Gas Inspection, has'
not received any reports of these
cylinders being found for sale or
reports of any injuries.
Consumers are reminded to
avoid using soapy solutions con-
taining ammonia when clean-


Record number of Florida schools earn higi


TALLAHASSEE-Florida has
more schools earning "A's" apd
"B's" than ever before according
to the 2008 school grades results
recently announced.
Of the 2,889 schools graded
this year, nearly three quarters
(2,125) are considered to be high
performing (receiving either an
"A" or "B" grade).
Additionally, the number of
schools considered to be low per-
forming decreased significantly
compared to last year.
"Congratulations to our stu-
dents, parents, teachers and
principals for gaining ground in
student achievement and learn-
ing," Governor Crist said. "While
we are proud of the success we
have gained, we pledge to con-
tinue working to make improve-
ments and lift up our struggling
schools."
Of Florida's 2,889 graded pub-
lic schools earning "A" through
"F" grades this year:
1,583 earned an "A" (55 per-
cent), an increase of 100 schools


compared to last year.
542 earned a "B" (19.percent),
an increase of 73 schools com-
pared to last year.
565 earned a "C" (20 percent),
a decrease of 22 schools com-
pared to last year.
154 earned a "D" (5 percent),
a decrease of 62 schools com-
pared to last year.
45 earned an "F" (2 percent), a
decrease of 38 schools compared
to last year.
"The school grades this year
indicate that Florida's teachers
and schools are going above and
beyond to meet the needs of their
students," said Education Com-
missioner Eric J. Smith. "I com-
mend them on such excellent
work, and thank them for their
continued efforts to provide qual-
ity learning environments that en-.
able our children to succeed."
School Performance Rises
with Higher Expectations Florida
continues to raise its school per-
formance expectations to ensure
students are prepared for the


rigor of postsecondary education
and the workforce.
In 2007, the expectations were
raised for the fourth time since
the inception of school grades.
This year's results confirm
historical trends that indicate
schools respond with improved
performance when expectations
are raised.
The number of low perform-
ing schools (receiving an "F"
grade) declined to 45 this year,
down from 83 in 2007.
Of last year's 83 "F" graded
schools, five improved to an "A,"
seven improved to a "B," 33 im-
proved to a "C" and 20 improved
to a "D."
School Recognition Program
Remains Incentive for Improve-
ment
The Florida School Recogni-
tion Program rewards schools
that have sustained high student
performance or demonstrated
substantial improvement in stu-.
dent performance.
Schools that receive an "A," or


improve at least one performance
grade from the previous year, are
eligible to earn an additional $85
per student.
The School Recognition Pro-
gram has had a positive effect on
schools maintaining and improv-
ing grades.
In 2008, 1,203 schools main-
tained their "A," 32 newly opened
schools earned an "A," 348
schools improved to an "A" and
350 schools improved to a grade
other than an "A."
For Florida's 'struggling
schools, the Assistance Plus pro-
gram provides funding, resources
and support to address areas of
weakness.
Additionally, failing schools re-
ceive school' improvement facili-
tators, reading coaches, technical
assistance and assessments to.
monitor student progress.
Adequate Yearly Progress
(AYP)
Required as a part of the fed-
eral No.Child Left Behind (NCLB)
Act, AYP measurements target the


performance and participation of
various student subgroups on
statewide assessments based on
race or ethnicity, socioeconomic
status, disability, and English pro-
ficiency.
While the majority of public
schools are measured for AYP,
only Title I schools (schools that
receive federal funding for low-
income students) face increas-
ing levels of corrective action for"
failing to meet AYP two or more
years in a row.
These actions- remain the
same for each school regardless
of the percentage of AYP criteria
met or their performance on state
accountability requirements.
.This year, 1,104 Florida Title I
schools did not make AYP.
Florida was recently selected
to participate in the federal Differ-
entiated Accountability pilot pro-
gram which provides more flex-
ibility for Title I schools in the type
of corrective actions they need to
implement.
Through the program, Title


ing or checking equipment for
leaks, as this can also be harmful
to equipment. Consumers with
questions concerning this issue
may contact the Bureau of Lique-
fied Petroleum Gas Inspection at
850-921-8001 for more informa-
tion.


h grades

I schools that consecutively fail
to make AYP will be placed into
three main improvement levels

Florida Forever


becomes law


TALLAHASSEE-Governor
Crist signed into law late Monday
Senate bill 542, which extends
the Florida Forever program
through 2020 at $300 million a
year. The new law went into ef-
fect on July 1.
"This is the best investment
we could make in our children's
future," said Nature Conser-
vancy Florida State Director Jeff
Danter.
"Extending the Florida For-
ever program will help protect
Florida's most important assets
- its natural spaces and wild-
life."
The Nature Conservancy is
grateful to Governor Crist and
the Florida Legislature for hav-


ing the vision to extend land
conservation funding well into
the future.
Florida Forever and Preserva-
tion 2000 have helped protect
more than 2 million acres.
The legislature must appro-
priate funds to launch Florida
Forever ,bonds in the budget
each year.
"Our job is not done," said
Danter. "We must ensure that
funds are spent on the highest
conservation priorities, and we
must continue to make the case
for Florida Forever every day."

Grades
Continued From Page 1
F rating this year, two of them
came from the Belle Glade area.
Lake Shore Annex, an alterna-


tive school in Belle Glade, received
its first failing grade after passing
the .last two years. A school like
Lake Shore Annex is rated on a
Pass/Fail basis, not the A to F scale
that traditional public schools in
the state are graded on. '
The most surprising news of


all is that Glades Central High
School, another school in Palm
Beach County under the state's
restructuring plan, received its
second consecutive F rating.
It is the only school in all of
Palm Beach County to achieve
the dubious feat this year.


The news sent shockwaves to
many teachers and administra-
tors who work there, as the high
school recently graduated 210 of
its 233 outgoing seniors and gar-
nered over $3 million in scholar-
ship money this year.
It was speculated that Glades


Central would at least improve
to a C rating, but now there's no
telling what may happen next to
Glades Central High School.
After failing to meet AYP for
the fifth consecutive year, the fate
of Glades Central High School is
now in the state's hands.


For detailed information about
all of the school grades and AYP,
you can visit the Florida Depart-
ment of Education's website at
www.fldoe.org.

Fourth
Continued From Page 1
ting move, the city decided not to
have it on July 4.
With only one week to work
with $5,000 funded by the county,
it was extremely difficult for the
city to obtain $10,000 more else-
where, according to city officials.
"We felt it would wouldn't
make much of difference, since it
was the Fourth of July weekend,"
Mr. Roberts said. "So that's why
the city chose July 5 over July 3."
Richard 'Tadpole' Brown, a
longtime Pahokee resident, cer-
tainly didn't have a problem with
the city's decision;
In fact, what he did on July 4
was simply host a barbecue at his
home and later had his own pri-
vate fireworks display.
"If the citizens look at this from
a business perspective, then they
would understand why it hap-
pened on Saturday night as op-
posed to the Fourth,". Mr. Brown
said. "The city went out of its way
to make the celebration a two-
day event. The citizens didn't re-
ally have much to do on Saturday,
so it worked out good for every-
one."
It worked out so good that
well over 500 people attended the
event, which began at sundown


and lasted for approximately 15
minutes.
Everyone who attended
seemed to leave the display very
pleased and in good spirits.
What also helped was that
Mother Nature was on Paho-
kee's side on Saturday night,
with winds blowing in a south-
eastern direction and the display
aimed northwesterly toward Lake
Okeechobee.
Add in the fact that about 450
shells of fireworks went off into
-the clear skies, and what you get
is a great show that would leave
anyone satisfied.
"The sparks from the fireworks
went further into the lake due to
the direction of the wind," said
Eddie Boswell, an inspector with
the Palm Beach County Fire Mar-
shal's Office. "If the conditions
weren't right, then we might have
had to shut down the show."
Deputies from the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office were on
hand to ensure that all of the
event's participants were happy
and safe.
"We anticipated a peaceful
celebration with no issues," said
Rolando Silva, the sheriff's office
District Five captain and com-
mander. "We did not want the
public to have this traditionally
rich event to be undermined by a
few uncaring people out there."


INI/Naji Tobias
A magnificent fireworks display ensued on the night of July 5 at the site of the Pahokee Ma-
rina and Campground. Well over 500 people came to the event and thoroughly enjoyed the
15-minute show, courtesy of Pyrotecnico Inc.


Fortunately, the sheriff's office
did not report any misconduct in
relation to the celebration.
But for next year, Mr. Roberts
would like to have the cities of
Belle Glade and South Bay take
part in an even bigger Fourth of
July celebration.


The issue may be addressed
at the upcoming Tri-Cities meet-
ing, to be held on July 16 at South
Bay's city hall chambers.
"We need to start to band to-
gether more as a region for the
sake of our survival," Mr. Roberts
said. "One way of us doing that


would be to celebrate together.
We still have our own separate
municipal identities, but we're
still a region, whether we like it
or not."
"All three cities should have a
variety of fund raisers throughout
the year and put the money in a


reserve fund," Mr. Roberts contin-
ued. "We need to do this so when
the Fourth of July celebration
comes next year, then the tri-cities
can plan well in advance for it."
Diane Walker, a Pahokee city
commissioner, had some mixed
feelings about this year's Fourth
of July situation.
"This information should have
been shared with the citizens
prior to it being delayed," Com-
missioner Walker said. "To be
honest, I was disappointed that
the fireworks were not held on
the Fourth."
"But I also understand the
funding was a deterrent from the
city being able to do it on that
night," the commissioner contin-
ued. "However, it appeared the
citizens were pleased based on
the turnout and that is what's im-
portant to me."
Next year, the Fourth of July'
will fall on a Saturday. So, frorn
that standpoint, a delay most like-'
ly won't be necessary again.

NBC Today Show visits Gatorama


Glades County
welcomes tourism
and media

By Nena Bolan
INI Florida

PALMDALE NBC's Miami
crew for the "Today Show" ar-
rived at Gatorama long before
sunrise July 3. The large van with
a satellite dish was the first to ar-
rive and technicians began to set
up and double check their elec-
tronic equipment.
The live segment at Gatora-
ma would accompany a story
recorded earlier about the an-
nual Public Waters Alligator Egg
Collection. The harvest is part
of Florida Wildlife Commission
(FWC) alligator management,
and creates funds for the pro-
gram. This is done in coopera-
tion with alligator farmers.
Allen Register, Gatorama
owner, is the coordinator for the
collection program that is held
in July. The farmers, Florida's
aquaculturists, pay the expenses
of equipment and time used to
complete the harvest. They pay


money to the FWC for each egg
collected by the expert reptile
handlers. The eggs are placed in
warm surrogate nests, and will
hatch in late August, culminat-
ing in Gatorama's Egg Hatching
Festival beginning August 22 and
ending September 1.
As he looked into a TV cam-
era, Kerry Sanders, NBC news
correspondent, got to hold on to
a small, but menacing looking
gator. The yearling alligator was
one of last year's hatched ba-
bies. Handling the little alligator
without getting nipped was an
unusual experience for Mr. Sand-
ers, but he has been in far more
perilous situations when he was
an embedded reporter with U.S.
Marines in Iraq.
According to Mr. Register,
some of biggest alligators in the
park are aged 60 to 70, and have
thrived at the park most of their
lives. They have thrilled visitors
since the 1950's. NBC's camera-
man, Jim Craven, was joined
later by his family so the young-
sters could get an up close visit
with the crocodiles and alligators
at the classic road-side attraction
along U.S. 27 in Glades County
near Palmdale.


It was obvious that the news
crew was impressed by the size
and grace of these ancient giants
in the water; and found great re-
spect for the animals when they
emerged on land to reveal their
size, strength and saw-teeth.
Some of Gatorama's largest and
oldest alligators cruised under
the boardwalk and grinned for
snacks.
The first live showing oc-
curred a little after 7:30 a.m. and
was followed by a second live
filming during the news on MSN-
BC. Recently, WINK TV news,
Fort Myers, filmed a story here.
Patty Register, Gatorama owner,
has made efforts to promote
Glades County as a tourism des-
tination. Gatorama has a shady
walkway for animal observation,
an interesting gift shop; and will
sell tender alligator meat and ribs
to your family chef.

Show" video at http://www.
msnbc.msn.com and search

tor Eggs. To see other videos go

gator eggs to
Gatoroma

Just a few miles from where
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
biologists watched licensed and
permitted alligator farmers legili-
mately collect eggs from alligator
nests in the wild Everglades, a Lee
County man was arrested for tak-
ing eggs illegally.
On July 1, FWC Officers, Clin-
ton Bean and Joshua Caraker
were on routine patrol along Al-
ligator Alley in Collier County,


when they noticed a small boat
on the bank of the canal.
Officers watched the boat op-
erator make stops along the canal
and walk into the woods.
As the boat approached the
officers, the officers detected a
marijuana odor and watched as
the man picked up two white,
five-gallon buckets.
The officers stopped 49-year
old Gerald R. Clemons of Fort My-
ers and looked inside his buck-
ets.
The buckets had dirt inside
them and eggs on top.
Clemons said he collected
more than 100 alligator eggs that


day, removing the eggs from at
least 10 different nests, and mark-
ing them to preservetheir viabil-
ity.
Officers Bean and Caraker
counted 133 alligator eggs irf
Clemons' possession.
Clemons was, arrested and
charged with possession of 133
American alligator eggs and pos-
session of marijuana and drug
paraphernalia.
According to the.FWC, 1,30 of
the 133 seized alligator eggs were
donated to Gatorama, an alligator
farm in Palmdale. Two eggs were
retained as evidence, and one egg
was sent for forensic testing.
