PBSO and DAVID: A dynamic duo


Deputy Khan:
'DAVID is a stud, I
use it for everything'

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES Batman and Robin.
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance
Kid.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO) and DAVID.
Well, the comparison might
be a stretch, but the fact of the
matter is that both are very effec-
tive at what they do.


Motorists everywhere need to
be informed of the PBSO's new
sidekick, which is known as the
Driver and Vehicle Information
Database.
DAVID was advocated by
PBSO Sheriff Ric Bradshaw in
2004, shortly after he was elected
as the county's top law enforce-
ment officer.
The device, created in 2002 by
the state's Department of High-
way Safety and Motor Vehicles,
is used to identify information on
subjects and/or victims.
The easy-to-use system can
pull up an individual's name, ve-


hicle identification number, vehi-
cle tag number, date of birth, so-
cial security number and picture,
provided that the driver's license
in question is in Florida.
Before DAVID came out, of-
ficers used the radio system to
track down individuals and ve-
hicles.
Now, with the use of comput-
ers; it frees up radio traffic with
the PBSO's dispatch, making it
a win-win situation for the sher-
iff's office.
"It allows us to.be more pro-
active," said Daniel Mercier, a
deputy sheriff with the PBSO.


A tale of a story: BG Library


INI/Naji lODias
On Thursday, July 24, the kids from Palm Glades Head Start, Glades Day School and
Community United Methodist Church took a trip to the Belle Glade Branch Library,
where they all met Geddy the Gecko. Mary Mallory, the Gecko's helper, holds Geddy's
tail for all to touch and feel. Geddy the Gecko also found his way to the South Bay and
Pahokee libraries on that day.


Geddy the Gecko leads the kids in the Macarena dance at the library.


INI/Naji Tobias


"I could sit at a red light now
and run two or three cars, while
not having to jam up the radio. It
makes it easier for everyone."
The device, used exclusively
in years past by the PBSO's DUI
Task Force, Bike Unit and Com-
mercial Motor Vehicle Unit, will
soon be available in all of the pa-
trol cars' laptop computers.
"Sheriff Bradshaw has been
advocating the DAVID system for
a long time," said Daniel Mercier,
a deputy sheriff of the PBSO.
"He's been pushing for all of
the patrol cars to have comput-
ers in them. With an agency as


big as ours, it was just a matter
of funding and time before we
could get the devices in the pa-
trol cars."
The primary downside to the
mostly intuitive system, as ex-
plained by Deputy Mercier, is that
the information is not always ac-
curate because, for example, if
the owner of an issued vehicle
tag is a woman and the driver is
a man, then the officer can't stop
the vehicle unless there's some
obvious reason to do so.
"It's kind of new to the road

Pahokee lays off


16 employees

Last day of work City
for those affected lamenting


set to be August 12

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE "Our aim is to
do what's best for the city," said
Allie Biggs, a Pahokee city com-
missioner.
During Tuesday night's spe-
cial meeting, the city commis-
sioners unanimously voted
to amend an addition to the
current year's budget, which
includes the layoff of 16 city
employees.
,The cost savings will in-
crease the city's reserve fund
from $260,315 to more than
$300,000 for the upcoming
fiscal year. That's a difference
from the $630,000 in the re-
serve fund prior to Tuesday
night's meeting.
The city also voted to amend
transferring $369,685 from its
reserves to the water and sew-
er fund.
Combined with a total of
$1.28,098 the city to be trans-
ferred from the city's general
fund, solid waster fund and
cemetery fund, the total trans-
fers to the water sewer fund
was $497,783.
The general fund for the
city is now at $3,730,754, with
the water and sewer fund now
looking at $2,910,700.
With less than two months
before the 2007-2008 bud-
get year concludes, the city's
total budget in revenues is
$7,475,044 and its expenses are
set at $7,475,043, a difference
of just $1.
The 2007-2008 fiscal year
ends on Sept. 30, with the 2008-
2009 fiscal year beginning on
Oct. 1.

the


employee layoffs
Though Matthew Brock, the
city manager, lamented about
having to lay off 16 of the 78
employees currently working
for the city, he said it was nec-
essary in order to cut the city's
operating costs.
Henry Crawford, a Pahokee
city commissioner, couldn't
agree more.
"It's not an easy decision
for us to put their future in our
hands," the commissioner said,
adding that the affected em-
ployees knew about the action
at least a month in advance.
"Sometimes you have to do
whatever it takes to succeed."
Those who will be laid off
were given two week's notice
yesterday, according to Mr.
Brock.
The 16 positions to be cut
are as follows:
Part-time jobs: Clerk I, Ac-
countant, Payroll, Maintenance,
Janitor, Laborer and Part-Time
'C.'
Full-time jobs: Meter
Reader, Clerk 1, Maintenance,
Maintenance 1 (2 positions),
Maintenance II, Maintenance
III, Cemetery Worker I and
Parks Maintenance.
All were paid on a hourly
basis, with the city now saving
$360,760.39 in payroll expens-
es.
City officials said that the
order of layoffs began with all
part time employees in all de-
partments that were not paid
through grant funding.
The next set of layoffs were
in regards to full time employ-
ees based on seniority through-
out all departments in the city.

A sitdown session with Willie Grear


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE There's
nothing like a homegrown citi-
zen training and mentoring the
area's youth.
Willie Grear, Jr., a strength
and conditioning coach for the
Glades Central Raiders football
team, currently does that for a
living.
The 1981 graduate from
Glades Central High School,
who was a classmate of Glades
Central head coach Jessie
Hester, had previously served
as a strength and conditioning
coach for the United States Ma-
rine Corps Interservice football
team from 1989-1993.


A Marine from 1986-1998,
Grear Jr. served as a drill in-
structor from 1989-1991, then
moved up in the ranks as a re-
cruiter from 1991-1995.
In 1993, Grear Jr. was the
proud recipient as the Recruiter
of the Year in the Eighth Marine
Corps District, based in Hous-
ton.
But in 1998, his father, Willie
Grear Sr. was terminally ill with
cancer.
As Grear Jr. left the Marines,
he realized the importance of
tending to his father and moth-
er, Dr. Effie C. Grear.
Returning home to, Belle
Glade in 1998, he spent eight
years as a service technician for


the BellSouth telephone com-
pany.
That time period was put to
good use, partly as a result of
earning a computer technology
certificate from Tampa Techni-
cal Institute, where he attended
from 1982-1984.
Sadly, Grear Sr. passed away
in 2006. The tragic life event
later fueled Grear Jr.'s drive and
desire to make a positive differ-
ence in the lives of the area's
youth.
In 2007, Grear Jr. enrolled as
a teaching major at Palm Beach
Community College and plans

Hearing loss customers have phone access
lI mMMMilllllialMIMMik

h -'" Mi$@


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Pub-
lic Service Commission (PSC)
Chairman Matthew M. Carter II
and Florida Telecommunications
Relay, Inc. (FTRI) Executive Di-
rector James Forstall teamed up
to recognize the 18th anniversary
of the Americans with Disabilities
Act (ADA) by showing Florida res-
idents with hearing loss how to
connect with 911, family, friends,
and businesses.
Specialized telephone equip-
ment offered through FTRI pro-
vides critical access to basic
telecommunications services for
deaf, hard of hearing, deaf/blind,
and speech disabled citizens
throughout the state.
Overseen by the PSC, FTRI is a
statewide nonprofit organization
established in 1991, as a result of
the Americans with Disabilities
Act, to administer the Specialized
Telecommunications Equipment
Distribution Program.
"Ensuring that disabled individ-
uals are not discriminated against,
the Americans with Disabilities
Act guarantees telecommunica-
tions access for the hearing im-
paired and speech disabled," said
Chairman Carter.
"In Florida, the PSC is charged
with implementing this direc-
tive. Telephone access provided
through Florida's Relay Service
(FRS) offers peace of mind for
people with hearing loss and their
families."
Florida ranks second nation-
wide in population percentage
with hearing loss, affecting nearly
three million citizens.
More than 3.8. million calls
were handled last fiscal year by
FRS, according to the PSC's 2007
annual report on the Status of the
Telecommunications Access Sys-
tem.
The report also stated that

Wilmer Charles and Yachiyo

18,937 new deaf, hard of hearing,
deaf/blind, and speech disabled
individuals were served through-
out the state; and 41,337 pieces of
specialized telecommunications
equipment were distributed.
"I sincerely believe that Florida
residents' telephone needs are
being met with the special tele-
phone that is available through
the FTRI program and the Florida
Relay Service.
Our mission is to provide a
special telephone and services to
each Floridian with a hearing loss
or speech disability to allow them
access to the telecommunications
system.
FTRI enjoys a successful work-
ing relationship with the PSC as
well as numerous organizations
throughout Florida.
Working together, we make a
positive difference in someone's
life by "Connecting People -to
People," said Mr. Forstall.
FRS supplies quick and conve-
nient telephone access 24 hours a
day, 365 days a year.
Individuals with or without a
hearing loss or speech disability
can place a call through the sys-
tem, and no restrictions are made
on the number or length of calls.
FRS gives users the freedom
and opportunity to make both
personal and business calls.
How does the FRS system
work?
A resident uses a Telecom-
munications Device for the Deaf
(TTY or TDD), which includes a
keyboard and screen, to type a
message to a specially trained
communications assistance op-
erator, who then voices the mes-
sage to the receiving party.
The reverse process then com-
pletes the message to the person
with hearing loss.

Florida KidCare is available for
any child without health insur-
ance. Florida KidCare is enrolling
new families every day and the
Hendry/Glades County Health


Departments have joined a state-
wide effort to help more unin-
sured children receive health care
benefits.
Florida KidCare provides qual-
ity healthcare benefits to children
under the age of 19. Children
enrolled in the program have ac-
cess to preventive care such as
regular doctor's visits, immuniza-
tions, dental and vision benefits.
Most families pay $20 or less per
month. Many pay nothing at all.
"Working families with unin-
sured children should be given
every opportunity to enroll in Kid-
Care," said Sue Reese, RN. "We're


in contact with these families
regularly and it makes sense to
use these opportunities to share
information about Florida Kid-
Care and encourage families to
complete the application for this
quality healthcare program."
Applications for Florida Kid-
Care can be picked up at any of
the Hendry/Glades County Health
Departments. (Labelle, Clewis-
ton, and Moore Haven) from 8
a.m. until 4 p.m.
*Families are encouraged to
apply online at www.floridakid-
care.org, or applications can be

*Families can also call 1-888-
540-KIDS (1-888-540-5437) to re-
ceive the enrollment application

Training
Community Emergency Re-
sponse Team (CERT) training
provides citizens with the skills
they need to be well prepared for
all types of disasters. This training
addresses disaster preparedness,
fire suppression, medical opera-
tions, search and rescue, disaster
psychology, team organization,
and other areas of disaster re-
sponse. Students put the knowl-
edge learned into practice on the
final day of class, with a simulated
disaster drill.
Following a disaster, emer-
gency service personnel may not
be able to reach everyone right
away. By getting trained in CERT,
individuals will have the skills to
help save lives until emergency
responders arrive.

Upcoming CERT

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.
For further information please
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

Consumers urged to check out


travel companies before trip


TALLAHASSEE -- With the
prime vacation season fully under
way, Florida Agriculture and Con-
sumer Services Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson encourages
residents to check out their travel
agency before booking a vaca-
tion.
"While most travel agencies
are reputable and most agents
are honorable professionals, we
occasionally come across those
that are not," Commissioner
Bronson said.
"And there's nothing worse
than saving for a vacation and
then paying thousands of dollars
for it only to learn later that you've
been taken by a con artist.'"
Before booking a trip, Com-
missioner Bronson recommends
that consumers consider the fol-
lowing tips:
Call the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices at 1-800-HELPFLA (1-800-
435-7352) to determine whether
the business is registered with the
state and to determine its com-
plaint history.
Some travel companies are
members of the Airline Report-
ing Corporation, which exempts
them from registering with the
state, but a phone call to the


hotline can verify that fact.
Never give credit card or
checking account numbers over
the telephone or on a website un-
less you initiated the call or con-
tact, and are certain of the creden-
tials of the company.
Look for the seller of travel's
current registration certificate
posted in its place of business,
and its registration number print-
ed on all flyers, brochures and all
other advertising materials.
Know and understand the
company's cancellation policy
before making any purchase.
Some may be non-refundable or
have penalties or additional fees
for re-scheduling.
Obtain itineraries, accom-
modations and other specifics of
the trip in writing so if there is a
dispute with the travel company
you have a written record of what
you have purchased.
It is also advisable to call the
airline on which you're booked or
hotel in which you're scheduled
to stay to verify your reservations.
According to Commissioner
Bronson, complaints against
travel companies consistently


rank among the top complaints
received by the Division of Con-
sumer Services.
Last year, for example, the de-
partment received nearly 2,800
written complaints against such
companies, placing them second
behind only unwanted telemar-
keting calls in 2007.
Consumers can file online
complaints against travel com-
panies on the Division of Con-
sumer Services website at http://
www.800helpfla.com.
They can also call the depart-
ment's hotline at 1-800-HELPFLA
(1-800-435-7352) and request
that a complaint form be sent to
them.
During the last five years,
Bronson's department has re-
funded more than $7.5 million to
consumers who filed complaints
against travel companies.
"We've had a good deal of
success getting refunds for con-
sumers in disputes with travel
agencies," Mr. Bronson said.
"But the best course is to avoid
having problems in the first place,
which why we recommend that
consumers check out a travel
company before they do business
with them."


Disaster readiness is essential


By Chip Wilson
Statewide Disability
Coordinator
For many years, Florida has
been infamous for the number of
hurricanes which have impacted
the state. While this is true, our
population is also affected by
other types of disasters.
Several years ago, wildfires
were rampant and thousands
of acres of land were burned,
dozens of houses were lost, and
many lives were changed forever.
Just over year ago, tornadoes
were responsible for over a dozen
deaths in the central part of the
state.
These events underscore the
need to have a good, comprehen-
sive preparedness plan especial-
ly'for people with disabilities.
Disaster preparedness for
people with disabilities can pres-
ent unique problems due to each


person's disability. Some people
are dependent on external oxy-
gen supplies, some are depen-
dent on electricity for ventilators
or to keep medication at a con-
stant cool temperature, and some
require a consistent ambient tem-
perature.
There are many other factors
ranging from mobility device de-
pendency to communication re-
quirements. With this in mind, it
is important that people with dis-
abilities, their families, caregivers,
and advocates are included and
participate in all phases of disas-
ter preparedness.
Disaster preparedness is truly
a team effort. Each of Florida's 67
counties has an Emergency Op-
eration Center which is staffed by
professionals in disaster prepared-
ness. Emergency management
professionals are encouraged to
reach out to the community and
include people with disabilities in


pre-event, during-event and post-
event planning. Also, individuals
with disabilities and disability-
related organizations are encour-
aged to contact their Emergency
Operations Center and offer to as-
sist in creating and testing the pre-
paredness plans which may be
affecting their lives. However, it is
advised that the public with dis-
abilities not wait for an invitation
to join the EOC but be proactive
and approach their emergency
management group and volun-
teer to assist in any way possible.
At an individual level, a fam-
ily plan can be built using the re-
sources found at www.floridadi-
saster.org. Select "Get a Family
Plan" and follow the directions
from there. Completing the plan
requires about 10 to 15
minutes and will help
you develop a compre-
hensive plan for you and
your family.

TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Ag-
riculture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is warning the public that
firewood can contain destructive
pests and diseases and i urging
people to take steps to reduce the
chance of an infestation.
Commissioner Bronson's Divi-
sion of Plant Industry has posted
a video about preventing the in-
troduction of destructive beetles
+ and other insects into Florida in
infested firewood on its web site
at http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/pi/
videos.html. The pests can wreak
havoc on many types of trees and
other foliage.
Commissioner Bronson says
many residents and tourists use
firewood for campfires, even
during the summer, and they
need to be aware of the poten-
tial problems. Several species of
destructive wood boring beetles
and diseases can inhabit popular
firewood varieties.
Numerous other states are bat-
tling insects and diseases and he is
concerned that out-of-state camp-
ers will bring their own firewood
to Florida, or people will move
potentially infested firewood from
one area of the state to another.
Any wood-boring beetles and dis-
eases that may have come along


for the ride could infest Florida
plants and trees.
For example, an Asian long-
horned beetle infestation has
resulted in the destruction of
thousands of maple, elm and
other trees in New York and Chi-
cago; and, the emerald ash borer
has killed millions of ash trees in
Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania and
other states.
"It costs millions of dollars to
try and eradicate these pests, not
to mention the tremendous loss
of so many trees," Bronson said.
"The impact on the environment
can be significant and we need to
do everything possible to protect
our trees."
Most recently, a fungus that
causes a fatal disease called lau-
rel wilt threatens Florida forests.
A non-native insect, the red bay
ambrosia beetle, spreads the fun-
gus. Laurel wilt disease kills red
bays, sassafras and pond spice,
and even attacks one of Florida's
most important fruit trees, the
avocado.
Laurel wilt spread .into Florida
after wood packing material in-
fested with red bay ambrosia bee-
tles was found in Savannah, Ga.
Dutch elm disease is another
serious problem spreading across
North America.


A fungus transmitted by two
species of bark beetles causes the
disease and has destroyed over
half the elm trees in the northern
United Sates. The fungus has not
yet been found in Florida.
Invasive pests and diseases ar-
rive in Florida each year at a rate
of at least one new significant pest
a month; they come in on cargo
shipments, storm fronts, infected
plant material, in the luggage
of millions of visitors to Florida,
and in firewood. There are ways
Floridians can protect against the
introduction of invasive pests and
diseases:
Be vigilant. If you see signs
of disease or an unusual pest,
contact your county extension
office or the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, Division of Plant Industry,
helpline at 1-888-397-1517.
Don't pack a pest. When
returning home to Florida from a
trip, don't bring plants, fruits, veg-
etables or illegal animals.
Purchase only certified
plants from registered nurseries to
ensure they are free of pests and
diseases. Prevent the introduc-
tion and/or spread of unwanted
insects and diseases specifically
involving firewood by following
these simple recommendations:


Use sources of firewood that
are local (within 50 miles) to the
area of your campground.
Do not move firewood from
one part of Florida to another.
Burn all firewood (local or
out-of-state firewood) before
leaving your campground.
If you are unable to burn
all the firewood due to weather,
fire ban or other reasons, and
you either live in the same area
of the state (within 50 miles) as
the campground, or are visiting
from out of state, please take the
firewood home. However, if you
live in another area of Florida,
please leave the firewood at your
campground. This will help pre-
vent the movement of pests and
diseases from one part of Florida
to another.

FWC to host conference on Fla. wildlife, climate


Florida's wildlife stands at the
forefront of the battle against the
effects of climate change. But
they don't stand alone. The Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) and other
state and federal agencies and en-
vironmental groups are bracing
to fight for their protection, man-
agement and adaptation.
Florida's Wildlife: On the
Frontline of Climate Change, a
summit hosted by the FWC, will
highlight the challenges facing
wildlife managers, governments,
industry leaders and the public in
the next 50 years in the struggle
with climate change. On Aug.
20-22, experts from the FWC and
other state and federal agencies
will conrerge in Orlando at the
Rosen PLAZA 10 discuss the prei
dicted consequences of climate
change on wildlife, while seeking
answers on how to manage and
conserve Florida's wildlife and
habitats wisely.
"This summit has global sig-
nificance, because the effects of
climate change on places like
Florida and Alaska will be a pre-
lude to what's going to happen
elsewhere in the world," said
FWC Chairman Rodney Barreto.
One of the keynote speak-
ers, Dr. Jean Brennan, a climate
change scientist with Defend-
ers of Wildlife, was a member
of the U.S. Delegation at inter-
national negotiations under the
U.N. Framework Convention on
Climate Change. She also served
on the Intergovernmental Panel
on Climate Change (IPCC) and
shares the Nobel Peace Prize
for 2007 for her contribution to


(IPCC). Brennan acknowledges
that Florida's wildlife and habitats
are in a sensitive position when
it comes to the effects of climate
change.
"Florida is extremely vulner-
able with its low elevation," Dr.
Brennan said. "And it's the hard-
est hit with extreme weather such
as hurricanes. The Arctic is seeing
greater temperature changes, but
the biological diversity of plants
and animals in Florida forces the
question: What are you losing?"
The summit will feature pre-
sentations and workshops to
stimulate discussion and offer
solutions to the complexities of a
state growing rapidly in an envi-
ronment changing just as quickly.
On Wednesday, Aug. 20, Dr.
Virginia R. Van Sickle-Burkett
from the United States Geologi-
cal Survey, (USGS) will present
reports from the Intergovernmen-
tal Panel on Climate Change. Dr.
Thomas Crisman, from the Uni-
versity of South Florida, will pres-
ent a report on the anticipated
changes in Florida because of cli-
mate change. Dr. Thomas Eason
will present the FWC's report on
Florida's wildlife and its changing
habitats.
A panel discussion in the af-
ternoon will feature specific spe-
cies on the frontline of climate
change, including marine, ter-
restrial and exotic species. The
future of agriculture also will be
on the agenda.
The first day will conclude with
a panel discussion on habitat and
species management, outdoor
recreation, initiatives from the
conservation community, legisla-


tive progress and communication
strategies for public awareness.
Thursday's session will open
with Brennan, who will speak
about management issues of
wildlife and habitat in a changing
climate.
Concurrent workshops, led by
.FWC's top scientists, will focus
on marine and inland ecosys-
tems, hunting and fishing, native
wildlife and habitats, invasive
organisms and natural-resource
management and land-use plan-
ning.
The event will continue on
Friday morning with reports from


the workshop facilitators. FWC
Executive Director Ken Haddad
will present the agency's directive
for Florida's wildlife to conclude
the three-day summit.
The early registration fee, prior
to Aug. 4, is $175, which includes
two breakfasts, two lunches and
a reception. After Aug. 4, the fee
is $195. The registration form
may be found at www.ces.fau.

DiCarlo at the Center for Environ-
mental Studies at Florida Atlantic
University, 561-799-8553 or 561-

School Happenings


Pioneer Park Hold
Summer Science
Camp
- Pioneer Park Elementary
School's upcoming fifth graders
completed the first ever Summer
Science Camp last Thursday. The
camp was a huge success. The
purpose of the science camp


was to get students who will be
entering fifth grade to get over
their fear of science and enter the
school year with a new found in-
terest and excitement of the sub-
ject. FCAT science is tested in fifth
grade for the first time and teach-
ers at Pioneer Park hope that the
science camp will be a way to
give their students an advantage
to this challenging test. While at


,the camp students dissected owl
pellets to discover what the birds
had eaten and where they lived,
learned about habitats, and made
phases of the moon cookies. They
also had their first experience us-
ing a- microscope and looking at,
cells. The four teachers and thirty
students all agreed that science
camp was an exciting new, ex-
perience and hope that it can be


duplicated next summer.

patrol," Deputy Mercier said.
"A lot of people would use tags
fraudulently and this device helps
is identify whether or not the tag
is legitimate."
DAVID discovers tags
On Friday, July 25, this reporter
took a ride in Deputy Mercier's
patrol car to see the system in ac-
tion, and, while traveling north on
U.S. Highway 27, the officer dis-
covered a white 1988 Dodge van
on the side of the road.
The van was located between
South Bay and the Broward
County Line.
It looked like the vehicle was
in an accident, but abandoned for
at least a week.
Through the DAVID system, a
stolen tag was discovered inside
the van; it was reportedly issued
to an Oldsmobile vehicle.
Deputy Sheriff M. Musto, who
made the discovery, issued a red
tag for the abandoned vehicle,
which gives the owner 24 hours
to remove the van. After the 24
hours, the vehicle is towed away.
Leaving the area, Deputy
Mercier drove further up toward


South Bay. He talked about the
DAVID system as he discovered a
seemingly improper tag on a red
Ford Explorer.
"People don't know that tags
can't be moved from one vehicle
to another," Deputy Mercier said
just before he gets ready to pull
over the sport-utility vehicle.
"As I type in the tag number of
the Ford Explorer, the DAVID sys-
tem tells me that the tag belonged
to a Nissan vehicle."
During the traffic stop, which
took place shortly before 4 p.m.,
Deputy Mercier was told by
the vehicle's owner that he just
traded in the Nissan for the Ford
Explorer. After showing proof of
a temporary tag to the deputy,
the SUV driver was let go with a
warning.
Improperly attaching tags on
a vehicle is considered a crimi-
nal offense, according to the Fla.
State Statutes.
It's a second-degree misde-
meanor charge, punishable by up
to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
DAVID helps deputy pull
over traffic violators
Passing through South Bay on
U.S. 27, Deputy Mercier's next and,
final destination on the day shift is
behind the sugar cane fields near


Belle Glade on State Road 80.
During rush hour, motorists
can expect to see patrol cars at
the intersection of State Road 80
.and State Road 715.
. That's exactly where Deputy
Mercier was located at approxi-
imately 4:15 p.m., when he spot-
ted a gray Ford Expedition com-
rmitting a traffic violation.
"If I see a vehicle passing the
'solid white line after the light
turns red, then the person will
get pulled over," Deputy Mercier
said.
The SUV is followed by Deputy
'Mercier to the Okeechobee Cen-
r, where the driver was stopped
at 4:19 p.m.
The female driver explained to
the deputy she was having a hard
day and was thinking about pre-
paring a meal for her family.
; "If the woman has a good re-
cord, I might consider letting her
go," the deputy told me.
But after checking the wom-
,an's driving record through the
DAVID system, using the vehicle's
tag number, she was issued a traf-
ific ticket for passing a red light.
; "I don't feel good about what I
did, but I've seen enough crashes
at busy intersections in the past,"
Deputy Mercier said.
"I know she wanted to go
home and cook some dinner, but


she needed to look where she
was going."
After issuing the ticket, Deputy
Mercier went back into the sugar
cane fields.
"I need to be sitting here,
watching the traffic go by on rush
hour because it's a Friday after-
noon," the deputy said. "People
are thinking about the weekend,
trying to get home from work,
prepare dinner and get the kids
situated."
At approximately 4:43 p.m., a
BMW X5 sport-utility vehicle was
the next vehicle caught in the act.
The male driver, who was
pulled over near the Bowling Su-
permarket, tried to get by with
this interesting excuse: 'My dad's
a retired police officer.'
Deputy Mercier considered the
man's explanation while looking
up his driver information on the
DAVID system, but upon discov-
ery, it was revealed that he had
a terrible past driving record, in-
cluding two traffic violations with-
in the past year.
"Oh, come on, you can't give
me a break?" the man pleaded
with Deputy Mercier.
"Sorry, sir, not with your re-
.cord like that," Deputy Mercier
replied, as he issued the ticket to
the man.

year?
Willie Grear Jr.: I felt with
the experience that I had and in
conjunction -with working as a
youth director, I felt I could make
contribution to the football team
- and to the community.
Some of the players are ben-
efitting right now with a good
workout regimen. I feel that with
the discipline and structure our
coaches have in place, the young
men will develop a good work
ethic when it comes to nutrition
and physical fitness.
Question: As a youth director
for GYRO, what do you feel your
greatest accomplishments have
been to date?
Willie Grear Jr.: We're lead-
ing more and more young men to
know about the Word of God. We
have weightlifting and basketball
there, along with other activities.
But the main focus is that we re-
quire 15 minutes a day to devo-
tion.
By that time, the young men
are taught how to apply the Word
of God to their everyday lives
which we feel helps them get in
the right direction.
Question: You have a very
close bond with your mother. So,
considering the fact that you con-
sider Dr. Grear as your best friend,
what is time like with her?
Willie Grear Jr.: Just learn-
ing and understanding the impact
and legacy that she's had on this
community. That's what inspired
me to go go back to school and try
to follow in her footsteps.
Question: Your father, Willie
Grear Sr., passed on August 15,
2006. Since that moment, how
has it changed your life?
Willie Grear Jr.: It allowed
me to start seeing my mother
more than a parental figure and
also as a friend. When everyone
sees Dr. Grear, they recognize


strength and stability. I spend so
much time with her because fol-
lowing in her footsteps, I want to
gain as much insight as I can.
Question: Please describe
your upbringing in the Grear
household. How did it make you
the man you are today?
Willie Grear Jr.: Well, by
growing up in my household and
having the influential parents I
had, even though I didn't always
do what I was supposed to do. As
parents, they did everything they
had to do to show me how to-be
the type of person I need to be.
Question: How has Coach
Hester made an impact on your
life? With him at the coaching
helm, where do you see Glades
Central's football team headed
this upcoming season and be-
yond?
Willie Grear Jr.: The influ-
ence Hester had on my life, with
him being my classmate and
friend, he's given me the oppor-
tunity to display my talents by
working with the young men.
Hopefully, I could instill the core
values in them that my parents
instilled in me.
Question: In two sentences,
what's the best advice you can
give to all of your football play-
ers?
Willie Grear Jr.: Continue to
work hard and have a good work
ethic. Take advantage of every-
thing Coach Hester has to offer.
Question: Please briefly de-
scribe your hobbies and interests
outside of mentoring and training
the area's youth?
Willie Grear Jr.: I love
weightlifting and physical train-
ing. I like to read as much as I
can, so.l could pass the knowl-
edge on to the next generation.
Quite naturally, I like to read the
Bible and the newspaper.
I'll pick up any viable source
that would be a positive influence
to me.
Question: Of everything
you've accomplished in your life,
what do you think is the greatest
one of all?
Willie Grear Jr.: Honestly, I
have to say that it would be that
I am the son of Dr. Grear and Mr.
Grear. There's nothing greater
that I hope to achieve.
Question: What's your favor-
ite quote?
Willie Grear Jr.: I don't re-
ally have a favorite one, but I can
say this; Being as blessed as I've
been for the past 44 years, I try to
continue to do what I can while
I can.

Early morning



shooting at Club 21


Two victims claimed
in weekend crossfire

By Naji Tobias
The Sun ,
BELLE GLADE A shooting at
Club 21 injured Sherman Gibson
and Venice Woods, both 21 this
week.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO),
the two victims were shot in the
early morning hours on July 19,
following a large fight at the club.
The still-unidentified suspects
reportedly began shooting in the
area, officials said.
Investigators later met with
Mr. Gibson, who told them that
he was the intended target in the
crossfire.
The victim told deputies that
he and one of the suspects had
gotten into an argument, and
when the fight spilled out into the


parking lot, the shooting began. *
According to him, the suspect
retrieved a handgun and fired sev-
eral rounds as he fled the scene. '
The female victim, meanwhile,
reportedly told detectives she was
shot while attempting to exit Club
21.
She suffered only minor gun
shot wounds to her arm and
buttocks. The woman was trans,
ported to St. Mary's Hospital for
observation and treatment of her
wounds.
Teri Barbera, the spokeswom-
an for the PBSO, said the case is
still open as no arrests have been
made at this time.
The case has been turned over
to the Palm.Beach County Violent
Crimes Task Force.
The sheriff's office is urging
anyone with pertinent informa-
tion regarding the shooting to
contact the county's task force at
688-4000 or call Crime Stoppers

Summer basketball camu in Clewiston


Lee: 'You prepare to
win in the offseason'

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON The high
school's basketball program may
have just gotten stronger, courtesy
of a summer camp.
Hosted by Willie Lee, the
Clewiston Tigers boys basketball
head coach, the 20th annual bas-
ketball camp was held from June
9 to July 26.
The camp was made avail-
able to all of Clewiston's current
and prospective basketball play-
ers, with a few pleasant surprises
along the way.
From June 19-20, the partici-
pants took part in an offensive
skills camp at the University of
Miami.
Lee said that the players took
advantage of the two-day camp
by utilizing the principles that are
essential to becoming successful
on the court.
Those aspects include re-
bounding, shot selection, mental
and physical training, transition,
the ability to reduce turnovers on
offense, and most of all, team-
work.


"The top assistant coaches
from Miami were very impressed
with our kids throughout the
camp," Lee said. "It basically re-
emphasized fundamentals that
they're already learning."
Not only did the Tigers go to a
camp in Miami, but some of the
former players came out and as-
sisted Lee.
Among Lee's former players
who helped out were the likes of
Reggie Gray, Johnny Jones, who
will be going into his sophomore
year at Marshall University and
Andre Williams, who's headed
for junior college in Delta, Miss.
"I used the former players as
a role model to let the kids know
what it takes to get to college,"
Lee said. "Most importantly, they
led the kids by example on and
off the court."
Though offense is paramount
to the success of a team and it's
players, Lee and his former play-
ers made it a point to emphasize
the importance of commitment
to defense.
They know that in order to
win games, attention to detail on
the defensive front must be ex-
ecuted.
A few things that all the play-
ers are expected to exhibit are the
ability to create turnovers, grab


rebounds and the desire to either
play man-to-man or zone cover-
age on defense,. to name just a
few.
It doesn't take long for every-
one to get with the program sim-
ply out of the team's desire to win
basketball games.
"You prepare to win in the off-
season," Lee said.
The 2008-2009 basketball sea-
son, which begins in November,
should turn out to better than last
year's less than impressive sea-
son.
For one thing, the Tigers want
to avenge losses to Glades Day
and Pahokee they lost twice to
both teams.
Most importantly, Clewiston
wants to have a chance to com-
pete in the Class 4A basketball
tournament, which didn't happen
due to not qualifying as one of the
top two teams in their district last
year.
The team will likely be made
up of underclassmen, which
include upcoming juniors Dem-
etrius Allen, Timothy Jackson and
Hurley Johnson.
Top newcomers will feature
Trevor Jackson, Ravin Lee and
Derrious Reed.
But for this season, the top
two athletes may end up being

the upcoming senior twins, John
and Jonathan Williams.
Both are expected to provide
the leadership for the program
and could be the faces of the
team.
"The kids just came out to


the camp this summer and had a
great time," Lee said. "They love
basketball, so it helped them play
together as team.
"We're looking forward to
our upcoming basketball season,
which I think will be a great suc-


cess," Lee said optimistically.
The summer camp was held
at the Clewiston High School in-
door basketball court.

in this close-knit city.



New fishing rules in effect



for Lake Okeechobee


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) reminds the public about
new Lake Okeechobee freshwa-
ter fishing rules. The rules went
into effect on July 1.
Largemouth bass in Lake
Okeechobee must be 18 inches
or greater in total length to be
harvested. Anglers can keep only
one bass 22 inches or greater in
total length as part of their daily


bag limit. Also, a new rule estab-
lishes a 10-inch minimum length
for black crappie on the lake. Bag
limits remain unchanged.
Sampling over the .last few
years has shown a decline in the
numbers of small largemouth
bass and black crappie.
"The new size limits protect
younger largemouth bass and
black crappie from being harvest-
ed," said Jon Fury, FWC freshwa-


ter fisheries biologist. "The new
rules also reduce pressure on the
current populations."
The Commission approved
the new rules in February, after
several public workshops.
Violating fish and wildlife
rules is illegal. To report viola-
tions, please call the Wildlife
Alert Hotline at 1-888-404-FWCC
(3922).

Two pure athletes going at it
Pahokee's Nu'keese Richardson, widely considered .as one of the best athletes in the na-
tion, locks down wide receiver Dennis Hall in a pass coverage drill last week. Richardson,
who is a wide receiver and quarterback, may also see some time as a defensive back this
season.

Focused on the opponent
Fort Myers PAL boxer Wisner Desmaret, 19, appeared ready and focused on defeating his
opponent, Palm Bay's Isaac Bermudez. Here, Wisner practices with his coach, Larry Willis,
for his bout during the July 19 boxing show which he actually won convincingly.

Hailing from Port St. Lucie
Coached by Bill Corbett and Byron Zamora Sr., the Port St. Lucie (PSL) PAL boxing team

19 Z "I


Everyone in God's church is a Saint


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
The book of Ephesians opens
with these words "Paul, an apos-
tle Of Jesus Christ by the will of
God, to all the SAINTS which are
at Ephesus, and to the faithful in
Christ Jesus" (vs. 1).
Jude refers to the Christians as
"saints" when he. wrote his well-
known, third verse, "Beloved,
when I give all diligence to write
unto you of the, common salva-
tion, it was needful for me to write
unto you, and exhort you that he
should earnestly contend for the
faith which was once delivered
unto the SAINTS."
It is clear from reading the
New Testament that Christians
are saints.
But, as has been true of so
many other matters related to
Christianity, religion has confused
the minds of many concerning
the exact bearing and application
of the word "saint."
Catholics give that term to cer-
tain famous ones, after they are
dead.
As in the baseball world, cer-
tain ones are voted into the Hall of
Fame" after their playing days are
ended, so have Catholics through
the centuries canonized certain


ones as saints years after they ter-
minated their earthly works.
Those referred to as "saints" in
the New Testament were, in con-
trast to the Catholic practice, yet
living in the flesh, and the term
applied to each Christian not a
mere few.
Proof: Paul commanded the
Roman brethren to distribute to
the necessity of the saints (Ro-
mans 12:13) these were poverty-
stricken Christians; Paul instruct-
ed the Corinthian members to
settle their differences before the
saints and not before governmen-
tal tribunals (I Cor. 6:1) before
the members of the church; Phi-
lippians 4:22 says, "All the saints
salute you, chiefly they that are of
Caesar'sjiousehold" people liv-
ing on earth.
It is not uncommon to hear
people refer to "St. Matthew" or
"St. Peter" or "St. John" or "St.
Paul."
Yes, these were all saints, but
so were Aquila and Priscilla and
Dorcas and Apollos and Onesi-
phorus and Rhoda and Epaphras,
and so are those who are in the
congregation of our day.
Many of our words come to us
in families.
For instance "sing" is the act;
"singer" is the one performing
the act; "songs" are what we


* sing; "singspiration" is a service
of singing.
In the same way, the Greek
language had a family of words
which will help us understand
what "saint" means.
"Hagioi" is the noun "saints";
Hhegios" is the adjective "holy";
"Hagiasmos" is the noun "holi-
ness"; and "hagiadzo" is the verb
"hallow" or "sanctify."
From this study, it can be seen
that a saint is one who is holy or
set apart to God.
Some of the so-called Holiness
groups have been taught that
a Christian can be so holy as to
need no mercy from God, he be-
ing able to live so holy that he has
no need'of God's forgiveness.
This position is mostly based
upon a misinterpretation of cer-
tain verses in I John, which may
sound like teaching the possibility
of sinless-perfection, but which
when taken with other passages
in I John such as I John 1:8, 10
and I John 2:1-2 boil down to
mean that a Christian does no fol-
low the life of sin in fact is very
much involved in being one of
God's saints or God's holy ones.
But, even after we do all that
the Lord commands, we are still
to say, "We are unprofitable ser-
vants" (Luke 17:10); we are still
to say, "Father, have mercy upon


To be sanctified or a saint in-
volves two things: 1. being set
apart from sin, and 2. being set
apart to God.
There are many passages that
teach these two sides of being
saints of God.
Here are a few of them: "De-
nying ungodliness and worldly
lusts, we should live soberly,
righteously, and godly" (Titus
2:12); "Reckon ye also yourselves
to be dead indeed unto sin, but
alive unto God" (Romans 6:13);
"Abhor that which is evil; cleave
to that which is good" (Romans
12:9), and "Present your bodies
a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable
unto God...Be not conformed to
this world" (Romans 12:1-2).
One becomes "sanctified" or
a "saint" when he: 1.Hears the
Gospel of Jesus Christ. (Romans
10:17) 2. Believes the Gospel.
(Mark 16:15-16) 3.Repents of Sin.
(Luke 13:3, Acts 17:30-31). 4. Con-
fesses faith in Christ. (Acts 8:37;
Romans 10:9-10). 4.Submits to be
baptized (immersed) in water for
the remission sins to receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit. (Acts 2:38,
8:36-39; Romans 6:3-5).
Such an one becomes a Chris-
tian and is added to the Lord's
Church. (Acts 2:41, 47).

Nubbin Slough advances the Everglades


Improvements
restore wetlands on
former dairy lands

Okeechobee County-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has completed
wetlands restoration on the site of
a former dairy operation, return-
ing dry pasture to wetlands and
increasing stormwater treatment
near Nubbin Slough, a tributary
that feeds into Lake Okeechobee.
"This effort is an example of
how we are successfully reviving
natural lands in South Florida,"
said Jerry Montgomery, SFWMD
Governing Board representing
Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee,.
Orange, Osceola and Polk coun-
ties.
"Several carefully designed
projects can restore a large, well-
drained agricultural site to a thriv-
- ing tract of Everglades wetlands."
The restoration project- in-


cluded plugging farm ditches at
the 435-acre District-owned site,
filling in old ponds and removing
abandoned buildings to re-create
historic wetland conditions along
Nubbin Slough.
These improvements will in-
crease water storage and reten-
tion time, and improve water
quality by aiding phosphorus re-
moval.
Over time, legacy phosphorus
currently locked into soils and
phosphorus in storm water run-
off will be removed by grasses
that will be harvested from the
former dairy pastures.
District scientists estimate
that these combined efforts will
remove about 380 kilograms of
phosphorus each year from the
local wetland system.
The project is one compo-
nent of the landmark Northern
Everglades and Estuaries Protec-
tion Program, which promotes a
comprehensive, interconnected
watershed approach to protect-


ing Lake Okeechobee, the Caloo-
sahatchee River and Estuary and
the St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Expanding the Lake Okeecho-
bee Protection Act in 2007 rec-
ognized the importance and
connectivity of the entire ecosys-
tem-from the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes south to Florida Bay.
The primary goal of the law is
to restore reaches of the natural
system north of Lake Okeecho-
bee by addressing not only water
quality but also the quantity, tim-

How people come to Christ


By Brian Hamrick, pastor
First Baptist Church,
Clewiston
I appreciate Pastor Jackie
Miller in a number of ways as a
man of great Christian convic-
tion, and also of his utilization of
church history to make his point
in his article last week, dealing
with Charles Finney and Christian
conversion.
I am confident Pastor Miller
would agree with me that every
Christian should be familiar with
Charles Finney, his methods, and
impact, not only on church his-
tory, but American history.
Pastor Miller's article has
prompted me, to put forth anoth-
er explanation for understanding
Christian conversion.
Quoting Mr. Finney, he wrote,
"There is the anxious seat, come
out and avow your determination
to be on the Lord's side... It (Bap-
tism) held the precise place that
the anxious seat does now, as a
public manifestation of their de-
termination to be Christian."
Pastor Miller went on to quote
opponents of the anxious seat as
having to substitute for it, accord-
ing to Finney, or else revival could
not occur.


Neither Pastor Miller nor Mr.
Finney explained why this was
necessary. Professor Dod of
Princeton commented on Finney
substituting the anxious seat for
baptism by saying, "Though he
supposes that the anxious seat
occupies 'the precise place' that
baptism did, we can by no means
consent to receive it as an equiva-
lent.
Baptism was, indeed, a test
of character, since obedience or
disobedience was exercised in
view of a divine command; but
the anxious seat cannot operate
thus, except by arrogating to itself
a similar authority."
Here's where I am with this.
Open the Bible.
Turn to Acts 2.
Peter preaches the Pentecost
sermon about the Lordship of the
crucified Jesus.
God convicts people's hearts-
in fact, the text says they were cut
to the heart.
Then they ask, "What must
we do?" And Peter says, "Repent
and be baptized."
Do we really need to add to
the Biblical example of evange-
lism for the conversion of men?
I greatly appreciate Finney's
(and Miller's) desire to have peo-

Amen, and amen.
You will not find me espousing
y "secret Christian" philosophy-
e Christian life is thoroughly
blic. The question is, how must
e apply it?
How was it applied in the
ord of God?
The words "anxious seat"
n't even appear in Scripture-
hich requires us to be careful of
whether or not we should accept
ch methodology.
We must beware the danger
hastily pronouncing someone
Christian, which is where the
xious seat often leads us.
The great evangelist George
hitefield explained, "I am glad
u know when persons are justi-
d. It is a lesson I have not yet
arnt. There are so many stony
found hearers, that receive the
ord with joy, that I have deter-
ned to suspend my judgments
I know the tree by its fruits... I
nnot believe they are converts
I see fruit brought forth. It will
converts no harm to keep
em a little back; it will never do
incere soul any harm."
Finally, of a historical note:
mehow, the church has thrived,
read, and communicated the


hanging

phesians 5:15-16." Whatever
ne there was before their world
me crashing down on the faith-
was to be "redeemed," used to
engthen fellowship, to grow in
pth, to develop the skills need-
to survive, to plan for the future
d then build on those plans.
The tent maker became an
angelist, but he had a skill to ap-
y should the need arise. Once,
went from a very large church
a small, mission that had only
:ently come into existence.
ddenly, I had much more time
an before, and I asked one of
y senior clergy neighbors how
st to use it. He advised me to
o something that I had wanted
do or dreamed about doing,
cause the next call will be to a
ger, busier church."
I spent my nights in school
working on a graduate degree
-ile there; there was nothing
television really worth watch-
. anv-ay .It meant some.travel
urs, studying for tests and read-
Sin spare moments, writing pa-
rs late in the evening and giving
leisure time by getting ready
tests. What I gathered up
ened doors to ministries and
portunities that were special-
d, and the chance to minister
new and more helpful ways. It
ened the paths to further train-
* opportunities and a fascinat-
and exciting career.
The swords hanging over the
and ministry were there from
te to time, but there were al-
ays new places to explore and
w opportunities available. The


Gospel for over 1,800 years before
Mr. Finney began his works.
How ever did people become
Christians without the anxious
seat?
How did the First Great Awak-
ening ever happen a century ear-
lier? It's because the Christian's
evangelism is much simpler than
adding in a "come to the front" as
though it is necessary for conver-
sion.
Our message is unchanged:
preach the Gospel.
If we preach the Gospel, the
Holy Spirit will work in people's
hearts, and some will be saved.
It may not be as fast as we
like.
We might not win the entire
world for Christ. We might not
see our country re-Christianized.
But we must preach the Gos-
pel, and we must make sure our
methodology is simple and re-
duces possibilities of confusion.
Fellow Christians, join with me
in preaching the Gospel and in
praying for the souls of our city.
Clewiston needs true spiritual
revival more than anything else.
Woe to us if we do hot preach the
Gospel!

signs had been read and the time
had been redeemed. Paul's mes-
sage to "get busy' seems to have a
place with us today. It has carried
others and myself through in the
past; it will carry us all through in
the days to come.

Perceived perceptions,


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I believe we human beings
have a perception problem.
We often think we have the'
proper perspective on an issue
when in fact we are way off.
There's a story that Thomas
Wheeler, one time CEO of the
Massachusetts Mutual Life Insur-
ance Company, tells on himself:
He and his wife were driving
along an interstate highway when
he noticed that their car was low
on gas.
Wheeler got off the highway
at the next exit and soon found a
rundown gas station with just one
gas pump.
He asked the lone attendant
to fill the tank and check the oil,
then went for a little walk around
the station to stretch his legs.
As he-was returning to the car,
he noticed that the attendant and
his wife were engaged in an ani-
mated conversation.
The conversation stopped as
he paid the attendant.
But as he was getting back


into the car, he saw the attendant
wave and heard him say, "It was
great talking to you."
As they drove out of the sta-
tion, Wheeler asked his wife if
she knew the man.
She readily admitted she did.
They had gone to high school
together and had dated steadily
for about a year.
"Boy, were you lucky that I
came along," bragged Wheeler.
"If you had married him, you'd be
the wife of a gas station attendant
instead of the wife of a chief ex-
ecutive officer."
"My dear," replied his wife, "if
I had married him, he'd be the
chief executive officer and you'd
be the gas station attendant."
We often think we have the
proper perspective on an issue
when in fact we are way off.
Jesus understood this pro-
pensity for us humans to get it
wrong.
Especially when it comes to
things spiritual.
So he told a few parables. He
said the kingdom of heaven is like
a small seed.

Nubbin Slough advances the Everglades


Improvements
restore wetlands on
former dairy lands

Okeechobee County-The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has completed
wetlands restoration on the site of
a former dairy operation, return-
ing dry pasture to wetlands and
increasing stormwater treatment
near Nubbin Slough, a tributary
that feeds into Lake Okeechobee.
"This effort is an example of
how we are successfully reviving
natural lands in South Florida,"
said Jerry Montgomery, SFWMD
Governing Board representing
Glades, Highlands, Okeechobee,


Orange, Osceola and Polk coun-
ties.
"Several carefully designed
projects can restore a large, well-
drained agricultural site to a thriv-
ing tract of Everglades wetlands."
The restoration project in-
cluded plugging farm ditches at
the 435-acre District-owned site,
filling in old ponds and removing
abandoned buildings to re-create
historic wetland conditions along
Nubbin Slough.
These improvements will in-
crease water storage and reten-
tion time, and improve water
quality by aiding phosphorus re-
moval.,
Over time, legacy phosphorus
currently locked into soils and


phosphorus in storm water run-
off will be removed by grasses
that will be harvested from the
former dairy pastures.
District scientists estimate
that these combined efforts will
remove about 380 kilograms of
phosphorus each year from the
local wetland system.
The project is one compo-
nent of the landmark Northern
Everglades and Estuaries Protec-
tion Program, which promotes a
comprehensive, interconnected
watershed approach to protect-
ing Lake Okeechobee, the Caloo-
sahatchee River and Estuary and
the St. Lucie River and Estuary.
Expanding the Lake Okeecho-
bee Protection Act in 2007 rec-


ognized the importance and
connectivity of the entire ecosys-
tem-from the Kissimmee Chain
of Lakes south to Florida Bay.
The primary goal of the law is
to restore reaches of the natural
system north of Lake Okeecho-
bee by addressing not only water
quality but also the quantity, tim-
ing and distribution of water to
the natural system.

garding the Northern Everglades
and Estuaries Protection Program,
