Locals outraged
over Santamaria's
vote against project
plans
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WEST PALM BEACH "Get
us some jobs, we need it," said
Robert Mosley, a South Bay resi-
dent.
It was the overriding theme
during the Sept. 9 Board of
County Commissioners meeting,


which featured an inland port
presentation.
Well over 150 people from
Belle Glade, Pahokee and South
Bay rode on three charter buses
.to make a statement regarding
the vitality of an inland port in
the Glades.
That figure includes more
than 50 senior citizens, with the
majority of the group coming
from Pahokee.
Most of the attendees, which
jam-packed the standing-room
only commission chambers,
wore tee-shirts to prove a point.
The mostly white shirts


stated, 'Save our Jobs. Save our
Communities. Inland Port in the
Glades.'
"We need more opportunities
in the Glades," said John Wilson
Jr., the son of South Bay com-
missioner John Wilson.
"As long as we got God on
our side, there's no last hope,"
Mr. Wilson Jr. continued.
"Most of the country's har-
vesting comes from the Glades,
but mills are getting shut down,
sugar plants are slowing down,"
he said.
"Everything's slowing down
in the Glades."


It seemed like most of the
county commissioners were lis-
tening.
Reactions to the vote
and discussion
The county commissioners,
approved plans to begin zoning
adjustments for the possibility of
an inland port in the Glades.
It includes an overlay, which
is described as the general area
where the objective is to con-
sider the U.S. Highway 27 corri-
dor for the inland port industrial
zone.


Memorial: Officers dedication ceremony


INIINaji Tobias
The PalmiBeach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO), along with DBI (an affiliate of the Flatjartment of Transporta-
tion), memorialized the passing of PBSO Deputies Jonathan Wallace and Donta Manuel on ept. 12. The 15-minute
long dedication ceremony took place on State Road 715 near Pahokee.


INI/Naji Tobias
Located less than a mile from Pahokee, the posts of PBSO Deputies Donta Manuel and Jonathan Wallace, who were
tragically killed in a pursuit chase on Nov. 28, 2007, are located near the southbound side of State Road 715. Special
thanks goes to PBSO Lt. Christopher Keane and the DBI team for making the memorial possible.


The vote was 5-2 in favor of
the progression, with Robert J.
Kanjian (District 3) making the
motion and Jeff Koons (District
2) seconding it.
Addie L. Greene (District 7),
Burt Aaronson (District 5) and
Mary McCarty (District 4) all
comprised the majority vote.
However, those who dissent-
ed were Karen T. Marcus (Dis-
trict 1) and most notably, Jess
Santamaria (District 6).

South Florida Water
Management District
hires law firm to
work on transaction
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WEST PALM BEACH "The
disclosure transaction is..awork -
in progress," said Bill Sudow of
the Sidley Austin law firm.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) an-
nounced on Sept. 10 that there
would be a delay in the negotia-
tion process regarding U.S. Sug-
ar's 187,000 acres of land.
The assets in question are con-
sidered vital to the restoration of
the Everglades, something that
environmentalists see as the main
priority for the area.
The water district recently
hired the law firm to conduct the
inner workings of the proposed
contract; which will include such
key components as the purchase
agreement and disposition of as-
sets, to name just two.
The asset/purchase agree-
ment includes eight exhibits and
50 schedules, with approximately
5,000 closing documents to be
released to the public in the near
future.
"We're very excited to be
working on this project," Mr. Su-
dow said. "When you assume
ownership, you assume potential
liability,"

PBSO Captain leaves District


Sheriff Ric
Bradshaw selects
him for Lake Worth
district
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
GLADES The last 14 months
have been a memorable experi-
ence for Rolando Silva.
Serving as the District Five
sheriff's office captain since July
2, 2007, many strides have oc-
curred under his leadership.
Captain Silva has been influ-
ential in the formation of func-
tions such as Midnight Hoops,


the PAL Boxing Program, Na-
tional Night Out and Putting Kids
First.
But now, he will be moving
on to Lake Worth, where the
captain will be overseeing op-
erations in the newly formed dis-
trict, effective Oct. 1.
Captain Silva will be tem-
porarily replaced by District 13
(Belle Glade) Captain Simon
Barnes IV.
An official District, Five re-
placement for Captain Silva will
be announced in the near future,
officials said.
The Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO) recently
merged with the City of Lake
Worth Police Department to take


over policing duties.
It may serve as a great move
for the coastal city since lately, it
has been widely considered as a
criminally problematic munici-
pality in Palm Beach County.
Interestingly, Captain Silva
currently lives in Lake Worth,
something that may have played
a role in Sheriff Ric Brashaw se-
lecting him as the commander
of the new district, which has yet
to be named.
"Although I am looking for-
ward to my new assignment
overseeing the city of Lake
Worth District, I lament leaving

Aryan R. 'Allan' Mayo
CLEWISTON Aryan R. "Allan"
Mayo, formerly of Clewiston, died
on Monday, Sept. 8, 2008, in his
home in Miami Springs after a val-
iant battle with cancer.
Born on Dec. 15, 1926, in
Camagiley, Cuba, Allan Mayo spent
his childhood in Cuba before com-
ing to the United States to attend
high school at the Blue Ridge School
for Boys in Hendersonville, N.C. He
later attended the University of
Michigan in Ann Arbor, Mich. and
then Louisiana State University in
Baton Rouge, La. where he received
his bachelors of science and masters
of science in sugar engineering.
Upon graduation, he returned to
Cuba to continue his family's legacy
in the sugar industry.
In 1961, he was recruited by U.S.
Sugar Corporation and returned to
the U.S. as superintendent, to over-
see the construction, and later oper-
ate, its newest state-of-the-art sugar

wiston, with his wife, Sally Pearson
Mayo (deceased as of 1986), and
daughters Leslie, Deborah and Ka-
thy. He was later promoted to sen-
ior vice president. His extraordinary
talent and tenacity enabled U.S. Sug-
ar to experience great success in it's
mill operations including breaking
multiple world grinding records
within the sugar industry.
After 30 years of service with U.S.
Sugar, he retired in 1991. He later
moved to Miami where he met and

SFWMD Modifies Water Restrictions


Conservation
remains vital for
long-term regional
water supply

West Palm Beach-In re-
sponse to improved regional
water resource conditions, the
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) today modified
emergency water restrictions to
provide agricultural, commercial
and recreational facilities more
flexibility for water use.
Modifications, take into ac-
count heavy rainfall that has
helped replenish the District's 16-


average of 22:53 inches of rainfall
so far between July and Septem-
ber.
The emergency water restric-
tions were implemented to pro-
tect public water supply amid a
record-breaking drought and wa-
ter shortage that began in 2006.
In January 2008, the District
implemented one-day-a-week
watering restrictions region-wide
for the first time in the agency's
history, based on the extreme
water shortage conditions and a
continued rainfall deficit of close
to 25 inches.
The restrictions were later
modified to two-day-a-week wa-
tering.
The District uses its emergency


ify water restrictions and bases
these decisions on the status of
the region's water resources.
"The Board's action was prudent
given the improved conditions,"
said Eric Buermann, SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman.
"This will help alleviate some of
the challenges faced by agricul-
ture, business and recreational
facilities while still maintaining a
conservation ethic and recogniz-
ing that residential landscapes
have benefited from the summer
rainfall pattern."
The modified restrictions rec-
ognize that farmers, golf courses,
plant nurseries and related opera-
tions already have water conser-
vation plans in place that benefit


Those plans are required by
the SFWMD before water use per-
mits are approved.
Two-day-a-week residential
landscape restrictions remain in
place. For residents, the deluge
from Tropical Storm Fay and. wet
season rainfall means lawns do
not need irrigation. Irrigating on
two days or less is sufficient to
keep lawns healthy.
The residential irrigation rmea-
sures do allow more water for
new plantings; they do not im-
pact vehicle washing, boat rinsing
or pressure cleaning.
Users of 100-percent reclaimed
water are exempt from the restric-
tions but are encouraged to con-
serve water voluntarily. Conserva-

District takes further
steps to protect
public investments

The South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
is implementing initiatives to-
strengthen the, public process
and safeguard public investments
while negotiating 'the potential
acquisition of the land and assets
of United States Sugar Corpora-
tion in an historic effort to revive
and restore America's Everglades.
The initiatives are specifically de-
signed to address the significance
and considerable investment of
this River of Grass restoration op-
portunity.
The first initiative calls for an in-
dependent review of the potential
United States Sugar Corporation
transaction by-an external group
of financial experts to ensure val-
ue, for this investment and a fair
price for South Florida taxpayers.
The District has selected the Duff
& Phelps Corporation to provide
what is known as a "fairness opin-
ion" on the proposed acquisition.
The New York-based firm, which
provides independent financial
advisory and investment banking
services, will deliver an opinion as
to whether the transaction is fair,
from a financial point of view, to
public stakeholders:
The Duff & Phelps group will
scrutinize appraisals, property and
all aspects of the transaction and
provide an independent report on


the value of the acquisition. The
group's findings will become part
of the public record.
"These actions, reflect this
Board's ongoing commitment.to
safeguard the taxpayers of South
Florida," said Eric Buermann,
SFWMD Governing Board Chair-
man. "These steps provide the
financial assurances that our citi-
zens expect and deserve as the
District negotiates this large, com-
plex and important purchase. In-
dependent reviews add another
layer of expertise to. guarantee
that the public receives the great-
est return on its investment."
A second initiative, previously
in use, amends and strengthens
a "Beneficial Interest and Disclo-
sure Affidavit" to provide further
safeguards for taxpayers' monies.
It will be used for all land acqui-
sitions by the District to support
environmental restoration, water
quality improvements and flood
control efforts.
The strengthened "Beneficial
Interest and Disclosure Affidavit"
identifies anyone who may ben-
efit from a land purchase with the
'Dfstrict and requires disclosure
of their interest in the transaction
in writing, Florida law already re-
quires parties who have a 5-per-
cent or greater interest to disclose
that information in any land ac-
quisition negotiations with a state
agency.
The District now requires any-
one-regardless of the percent-
age of their ownership stake-to
disclose their interest. The District


also now requires anyone who
stands to profit if aland purchase
succeeds to disclose that gain to
the public. The SFWMD Govern-
ing Board directed the District to
take this additional step to ensure
that all public dollars invested
during a land acquisition are uti-
lized only for acquiring land and
not on consultant's-fees or other
undisclosed costs, with the ex-.
ception of attorneys' fees.
"Acquiring land for the benefit
of the environment and the peo-
ple of South Florida is essential
to the District's mission," said the
SFWMD Director of Land Acqui-
sition Ruth Clements. "These ini-
tiatives will further ensure that all
public money set aside for land is
spent directly on the land itself."
The affidavit wording and for-
mat was approved today by the
Governing Board. Its use is ef-
fective immediately for all land
acquisitions involving the District.
A copy of the affidavit is available
here: Beneficial Interest and Dis-,
closure Affidavit.
"Together, these initiatives will
further protect taxpayer funds,
enhance accountability and trans-
parency and strengthen the Dis-
trict's commitment to upholding
and sustaining the public trust,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle.
As part of a historic plan to
revive the River of Grass, the Dis-
trict is negotiating the acquisition
of as much as 187,000 acres of
agricultural land owned by the
United States Sugar Corporation.


The vast tracts of land in the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area would
be, used to reestablish a part of
the historic connection between
Lake Okeechobee and America's
Everglades through a managed
system of storage and treatment
and, at the same time, safeguard
the St. Lucie and 'Caloosahatchee
rivers and estuaries.
Acquiring the enormous ex-
panse of real estate offers water.
managers the opportunity and
flexibility to store and clean water
on a scale never before contem-
plated to protect Florida's coastal
estuaries and to better revive,
restore and preserve the fabled
River of Grass. The acquisition is
subject to, independent apprais-
als, due diligence, financing and
approval by the District's Govern-
ing Board. I
For more information about
this historic Everglades restora-
tion opportunity, visit this District

ofgrass.

Citizens' Emergency
Preparedness
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 train-
ing addresses disaster prepared-
ness, fire suppression, medical
operations, search and rescue,
disaster psychology, team orga-
nization, and other areas of di-
saster response. Students put the
knowledge 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.

around Lake Okeechobee. The
Hike will, begin in Pahokee on

That's nine days of walking
from nine to 14 miles a day to
make it all the way around the
lake. There is a little bit of a chal-
lenge to this walk. Hundreds of
people have tried over the years

Hybrid cars and hybrid religions


By The Reverend Samuel
S.Thomas, Ph. d.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My friend's old Volkswagen re-
quired more and more repairs as
it got older.
As the bolts would rust, every
now and then they would break
when it was being disassembled.
We had metric wrenches that
were the right sizes for working
on it, but no metric taps or dies to
replace the broken bolts.
Instead, we used what we had
on hand English S.A.E. taps and
bolts.
They worked fine and the car
ran great, maybe even better than
before we worked on it.
One day my friend sold the
car.
I wondered how long it would
be before the new owner called
to ask "What gives?"
It had to be taken apart and re-
assembled in a certain sequence
thereafter or there would be parts
left over and the car wouldn't
run.
Maybe his VW was among the
first "hybrid" cars in the country.
Combining two traditions and
sources got him where he needed
to go.
Throughout my ministry, I've
encountered people who regard


the Christian religion as separate
from the Old Testament faith.
They like to read the Bible sto-
ries of the Old Testament heroes
and about the miracles that took
place in pre-Christian times, but
see that period only as only his-
tory.
This ignores the important
roots and heritage that we receive
from those of an earlier time.
The Lord made it clear that He
did not come to "abolish the Law
or the Prophets. I have come to
fulfill them (Matthew 5:17)."
The Lord's Prayer has been at-
tributed to the Jewish Midrash, an
Old Testament interpretation of
scriptures.
The Lord went to Jerusalem to
celebrate the Passover meal with
His disciples and it was to be His
"Last Supper" that has been cel-
ebrated ever since.
The Bible also tells us that "Be-
hold I make all things new (Rev-
elation 21:5)" but that doesn't
mean that newness is created out
of a vacuum.
Why should such things mat-
ter today?
While in Miami, I attended an
annual clergy conference hosted
by one of the older synagogues
each year.
The Jewish scholars who were
brought in were learned profes-


sors and men of great faith.
One year, the conference
dealt with religious persecutions;
something known to many reli-
gious bodies and many faiths.
Persecutions rely of separate-
ness, differences; characteristics
that are seen in one group but not
another.
Sometimes there are jealou-
sies involved, sometimes there
seems to be something threat-
ening about another identifiable
group.
Was Christianity founded by
the Lord to be different, radically
different from its Old Testament
heritage, or was the Old Testa-
ment faith fulfilled and as one of
my professors used to say "raised
to the Nth degree"?
In reality, Christians may be the
first "hybrid" of faiths; combining
old and new, having parts that
were no longer the same but re-
fitted in a new way so that things
would run smoothly and get us
where we wanted to go.
Make no mistake about it; it is
still the same faith in God; now
presented to "run" more efficient-
ly and take us to our final destina-
tion.
I suggested that we are not of
a different faith; but a reformed
direction of the older faith; and
that being seen as such might be


more accurate if we were under-
stood as part of the same family
of faith.
The plea was that we honor
our heritage and what has been
given to us; and that we under-
stand each other as divisions of
something from God that we all
share in common.
We are not so many different
families as different members of
the one family.'
' Maybe that has something to
do with ending wars one day or
helping keep peace at home or
having people get along better
everywhere.
It doesn't keep us from believ-
ing what is revealed to us or limit
God's gifts to His people; may-
be it will help things run more
smoothly.
The old VW ran quite well and
never was confused for anything
but what it really was; just adopt-
ing some accommodations to
keep it doing its appointed tasks.
Probably it is still running; they
were reliable means of transpor-
tation.
Maybe it was a lesson from an
old "hybrid" to those who owned
it about revisions and combina-
tions to take us where we need
to go.


Always and forever in the hearts of our youth


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It was a sad event what hap-
pened that day, that made so
many people go away. And it
kindled almost all the way down,
and still 5,000 lives have not been
found.
And Lord, be our children's
mentor help us teach them right
from wrong. And help us, Lord, to
still hold strong.
The above was part of a poem
written by then eighth grader
Kristin Way in 2002 in response to
what happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
In the hearts of our youth lies the
future of our nation. I was im-
pressed with her and other youth
as we all came together and re-
membered.
People from all backgrounds,
from all races, from all politi-
cal affiliations, from all different
churches young and old, rich
and poor came together, to re-
'membrer those who had fallen;
and to honor the firefighters, po-
lice, emergency service and mili-
tary personnel who served and
continue to serve in situations of
need in our communities and na-
tion. It was a time when the spirit
of patriotism was alive and flow-
ing as thanked God and remem-


bered these special people.
But what happens when we
stop remembering what once
was important to us? If we stop
remembering or stop sharing
what we remember, then future
generations might be uninformed
of significant things that shaped
our lives and theirs.
When Captain Peterson's
Clewiston High School Criminal
Justice Class talked about what
happened in September of 2001,
several of the students comment-
ed that they were in the fifth grade
at the time, and all they remem-
bered were that several buildings
went down. How soon we forget
when we don't continue to pass
on remembrances over the years.
The students undertook as a
class project to research the event
of the Sept. 11th tragedy. They
were visibly moved by the videos
they watched, but more ques-
tions arose-as to why we stopped
.remembering' or honoring all of
the emergency service personnel
today like we did in the first years
following the attack. Good ques-
tion.
In response, the class decided
to put on a program to remember
and to honor our emergency ser-
vice personnel on Sept. 11 of this


year. I was privileged to attend
this special program honoring
these "heroes" last week. More
touching than the moving presen-
tation based on the 31 words of
the pledge of allegiance and the
recognition of our firefighters,
law enforcement, and emergency
service people was the heart and
the spirit of these young people.
In the hearts of our youth lies the
future of our nation. With these
youth and others like them, we
have a hope and a future.
Something else that is impor-
tant to remember and pass on
to future generations is our faith.
How soon we forget when we
don't take time to remember or to
share with those around us. Jesus
Himself gave us some practices to
do "in remembrance of Him."
If we stop doing things in
remembrance or sharing our
beliefs, then future generations
might be uninformed of signifi-
cant things: that shaped our lives
and could affect theirs.
When we do things in remem-
brance, we bring to the front
burner thoughts and memories
of something or someone impor-
tant, and that importance is im-
printed on the minds and hearts
of our youth and children. In the

Bishop Dewane named to social Justice organizations


VENICE-Bishop Frank J. De-
wane of the Catholic Diocese of
Venice is serving on two impor-
. tant social justice organizations
which have significant impact on
the lives of rural residents and im-
migrants in the United States.
After two years as, a board
member of the National Catholic
Rural Life Conference (NCLRC),
a Catholic organization which
seeks solutions to critical issues
facing rural populations, Bishop
Dewane has been elected presi-
dent of the board.
He has also recently been ap-
pointed to the board of the Cath-
olic Legal Immigration Network
Inc. (CLINIC), a Washington,
D.C.-based group that works to
enhance and expand delivery of.
legal services to indigent and low-
income immigrants.


Bishop Dewane.


Founded in 1923 the NCLRC is
charged with helping rural people
and farm families shape their own
destinies through spiritual, educa-


tional and advocacy assistance.
The organization also supports
local businesses that promote
sustainable community develop-
ment.
CLINIC was established in
1988 by the United States Confer-
ence of Catholic Bishops (USC-
CB) to support a network of 173
diocesan and community-based
immigration programs, many of
them in agricultural areas, in 48
states including Catholic Charities
USA Inc.
"I hope that my personal ex-
periences and my experiences in
dealing with social issues will as-
sist both organizations continue
to help people in the rural com-
munities throughout the United
States, especially during these
economic hard times," said Bish-
op Dewane.

gines help us find what we are
looking for.
Here are five well-known
search engines and what they
do best.
Google.com; good, all-
around comprehensive search
site; prides itself on its "white
space" with its home page un-
cluttered. Great for finding com-
mercial businesses. Is the search
engine of choice for most gene-
alogists.
Yahoo.com; more of a direc-
tory by topic; organizes informa-
tion into like categories. Study the
results, then refine your search.
Wikipedia.org; a free, open-
content, community-built ency-
clopedia with a million articles
as of March this year. It has no
advertising on its results pages.
It is available in dozens of lan-
guages.
Answers.com; a combination
of encyclopedia, dictionary, the-
saurus, and almanac all rolled
into one. When I want the defi-
nition or spelling of a word, this
is where I go.
About.com; great for "how-
, tpo!!informationi .
S.,. earches have a better out-
come when we follow some
smart searching techniques.
Enter your search words in the
white line where the cursor is*
blinking. These simple search
techniques work especially well
with my favorite, Google..
Many beginning searchers
make the mistake of either being
too specific with their searches,


_oiutfing

For

Seniors

fr Tis calumr b, -na I to
afflreranwwazap corn

or not specific enough. For ex-
ample, if you're looking for pizza
restaurants in Ft. Pierce, merely
typing in the word "pizza" will
not get you what you want -
it's not specific enough! Instead,
type in "pizza Fort Pierce"; this
search will be MUCH more pro-
ductive.

Search Engine Math
Refine your searches using
the following techniques.
Use the "-" (minus) symbol
when'you want a search engine
to find pages that have one search
.word in them, but you need the
search engine to exclude other
words commonly associated
with that search word.
You are telling .the search en-
gines that you would like to find
pages that only have the words
"video," but exclude the listings
that include information about
"music."
This is a fast and easy way to
eliminate extra information and
narrow your search down; plus


you can do a string of excluded
words, like this:
Video -music -fight (yes, put
a space before the minus sign).
Now that you know how to
eliminate search terms, here's
how you can add them in, us-
ing the "+" (plus) symbol. For
example, if you have terms that
must be returned in all your
search results, you can place
the plus symbol in front of the
terms that you need included,
such as:
Football +nfl
Your search results would
now have both these terms in-
cluded.
Using the plus and minus
symbols is just a small part of a
successful Web search strategy.
Be as specific as humanly pos-
sible. Search engines are not
intuitive and will not be able to
figure out that when you type in
"jewelry," you actually are look-
ing for "handmade freshwater
pearl watches."
Using quote marks around
the phrase ensures that the
search engine will only give back
results where that exact phrase
is used.
Don't be timid about telling a
search engine specifically what
it is that you are looking for, and
using different techniques (in dif-
ferent ways) to get better results.
The old adage, "if you don't
succeed, try, ,try again," works
with search engines.
Try several search engines
if the information retrieved just
doesn't give you what you're
looking for.
Happy computing.

Bishop Dewane, who brings
considerable personal and pasto-
ral experience with farm life and
social justice issues, can make a
difference.
Born and raised on a Wiscon-
sin dairy farm, he has retained the
basic lessons learned in a rural
childhood, especially an apprecia-
tion for life and the environment.
These experiences have helped
mold the Bishop into the man he
is today, and they have provided
the basis for his work for world
peace and justice.
Before becoming the spiritual
leader of more than 237,000 Cath-
olics in Southwest Florida, then-
Monsignor Dewane served for
several years as Under Secretary
of the Vatican's Pontifical Council
for Justice and Peace.
As Under Secretary, he carried


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Did you know that Florida law
prohibits customers from having
direct access to tobacco prod-
ucts?
What does that mean?
It means all tobacco products
must be behind the counter so
customers have to ask for them in
order to purchase them.
This gives the clerk the ability
and the responsibility to ask for
identification for age.
The legal age to purchase to-
bacco products in Florida is 18.
The next time you are in a
convenience store or at any re-
tailer who sells tobacco products,
check it out.
There are a lot of stores who
do not follow the law.
This seems to be especially
true when it comes to flavored
tobacco like grape, vanilla or
chocolate cigars. I have seen them
right in front on the counter.
How about you?
Check out the signs while you
are at a convenience store as
well.
The tobacco companies spend
over 13 million dollars every day
to attract new smokers.
The tobacco companies know
they have to attract new users
(to replace those who .have quit
or died) and they also, know for
the majority of people if you don't
start by age 18,.you'll never start.
Who do you think the tobac-
-co companies are marketing to
when they sell flavors?
Adult smokers usually have
their favorite brand and are not
interested in sweet flavors.
Teens are interested because
the flavors don't sound like they
would be as dangerous.


the Vatican's messages of social
justice and peace to conferences
and international conventions
across the globe on issues such
as environment and develop-
ment, women, racial discrimina-
tion, poverty, human rights, social
justice and water.
The need for assistance in ru-
ral and agricultural areas can be
shown in the most recent U.S.
Census estimates, which state
that more than 8 million rural
residents live in poverty.
In Florida, more than 300,000
of the 1.2 million rural people live
in poverty.
These numbers, gathered pri-
or to the recent economic down-
turn, emphasize the irriportance
of having Catholic social service
organizations address these criti-
cal issues.


Another indicator of difficult
times is the unemployment rate
which is 6.1 percent in the Unit-
ed States, the highest level it has
been in five years.
However in some parts of ru-
ral America, the rate can be as
high as 15 percent.
Areas impacted by extreme
drought or extreme flooding have
been particularly hard hit in the
past few months.
Bishop Dewane is the spiritual
leader for the 10-county Diocese
of Venice which serves the Catho-
lic population of Southwest Flori-
da through 57 parishes, 14 Catho-
lic schools and other entities.

The issue of God and Global Warming


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Having just dealt with two hot
topics, "Gay Rights" and "Abor-
tion," I thought I might tackle an-
other one, "Global Warming."
The evidence clearly indicates
that our globe is experiencing a
warming trend.
But what is the cause of this
trend?
Are we experiencing a normal
long-term warming/cooling cycle,
or is something new taking place:
warming caused by human activ-
ity?
On the increase are those who
predict catastrophe if the people
and nations of the world do not
take immediate-drastic steps.
Such dire predictions are noth-
ing new on planet earth.
Remember the grave warnings
preceding the year 2000?
All the hype about Y2K "the
millennium bug," was just an-


other in a long series that never
materialized.
Before this Communism was
the cause for world alarm. Today,
militant Islamic terrorism is the
threat. There always seem to be
prophets predicting a dire future.
According to current comput-
er predictive models, how warm
will the earth become by 2050, by
2100?
Will so. much ice melt on
Greenland and Antarctica that the
oceans inundate vast costal areas
with millions of inhabitants?
Will the increasing heat cause
drought and famine, wiping out
huge populations?
Could global warming threat-
en the end of life as we know it?
What does the Bible have to
say about it all? Does it predict
global warming?
Definitely!
Tremendous heat? More than
civilization can tolerate! Destroy-
ing the earth? Absolutely!
"The day of the Lord will come


as a thief in the night; in the which
the heavens shall pass away with
fervent heat, the earth also and
the works that are therein shall be
burned up" (II Peter 3:10).
Of course, that is not the glob-
al warming people are concerned
about.
But why not?
Which of the following three
scenarios is more pertinent to our
daily lives and our futures?
1. Mankind may end civiliza-
tion with nuclear bombs; or 2.
Mankind may destroy life on earth
by disregarding the global warm-
ing trend; or 3.
The God who created the earth
will one day burn it up.
Which of the three should sen-
sible people be more concerned
about?
Do you realize that scenarios
one and two are materialistic
concerns, while issue three is a
spiritual concern?
No matter what humans do
to "save planet earth," God has


scheduled the planet for destruc-
tion, and God has scheduled us
for judgment.
In verse 9, Peter says that
the Lord is "not willing that any
should perish, but that all should
come to repentance."
And verse 11 says: "Seeing
then that all these things shall be
dissolved, what manner of per-
sons ought you to be in all holy
living and godliness."
God calls us to make more
drastic changes than recycling
plastics and burning less fossil
fuels.
God is calling us to quit cheat-
ing, lying, stealing, fighting, drink-
ing, gambling, complaining,
aborting babies, having affairs,
living luxuriously and the like.
God is calling us to live holy
lives, spiritual lives, lives that put
Christ first, others second, and
material things last.
Are you ready for God's day of
global warming?

I Puli Notice


In the Matter of dn Application for Permit by:
Mr. Trevor Cook, Vice President of Operations Glades County AP
Atlas-Transoil, Inc. South Florida Thermal Services
13838 Hariee Road DEP File No. 0430008-008-AF
Palmetto, Forida 34221
i INTENT TO ISSUE A FEDERALLY ENFORCEABLE STATE OPERATING PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its intent
to issue a Federally Enforceable State Operating Permit (FESOP), (copy of Draft
permit attached) for the proposed project, detailed in the application specified
above for the reasons stated below.
The applicant, Atlas-Transoil, Inc., applied on July 3, 2008, to the Department for a
renewal air operation permit for its South Florida Thermal Services facility located
at 1 Foxmoor Lane, Moore Haven, Forida 34221, Glades County. The permit au-
thorizes Atlas-Transoil, Inc. to operate a thermal soil remediation unit utilizing a
rotary kiln. The facility has the potential to emit 98 tons per year (TPY) of volatile
organic compounds, 46.7 TPY of sulfur dioxide, 34.5 TPY of nitrogen oxide,
10.46 TPY of carton monoxide, and 10.45 TPY of particulate matter. The facility
is synthetically limited to not exceed 98 TPY of Volatile Organic Compounds
(VOC) The owner or operator shall not exceed the VOC emission limit by limiting
the hours of operation and by recordkeeping of contaminated soil VOC content.
The Department has permitting jurisdiction under the provisions of Chapter 403,
Florida Statutes (F.S.), and lorida Administrative Code (EA.C.) Chapters 62-4,
62-210, and 82-212. The above actions are not exempt from permitting proce-
dures. The Department has determined that a Federally Enforceable State Air Op-
erating Permit is required for this project.
The Department intends to issue this air operation permit based on the belief that
reasonable assurances have been provided to indicate that operation of these
emission units will not adversely impact air quality, and the emission units will
comply with all appropriate provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210,
62-212.,62-296, and 62-297, EA.C.
Pursuant to Section 403.815, FS., and Rule 62-110.106(7)(a)1., EA.C., you (the
applicant) are required to publish at your own expense the enclosed EubliQ Notice
of Inlent to issue a Federally Enforceable State Operatine Permit. The notice shall
be published one time only in the legal advertisement section of a newspaper of
general circulation in the area affected. Rule 62-110.106(7)(b), F.A.C., requires
that the applicant cause the notice to be published as soon as possible after noti-
fication by the Department of its intended action. For the purpose of these rules,
"publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected" means
publication in a newspaper meeting the requirements of Sections 50.011 and
0.031, FS., in the country where the activity is to take place. If you are uncertain
that a newspaper meets these requirements, please contact the Department at the
address or telephone number listed below. The applicant shall provide proof of
publication to the Department of Environmental Protection, Post Office Box 2549,
Fort Myers, Florida 33902-2549, [Telephone: (239) 332-6975, Fax:
(239) 332-6969]. You must provide proof o publication within seven days of
publication, pursuant to Rule 62-110.106(5), F.A.C. No permitting action for
which published notice is required shall be granted until proof of publication of
notice is made by furnishing a uniform affidavit in substantially the form pre-
scribed in Section 50.051, FS. to the office of the Department issuing the permit.
Failure to publish the notice and provide proof of publication may result in the de-
nial of the permit pursuant to Rules 62-110.106(9) & (11), EA.C.
The Department will Issue the final permit ith the attached conditions unless a re-
sponse received in accordance with the following procedures results in a different
decision or significant change to terms or conditions.
The Department will accept written comments concerning the proposed permit issu-
ance action for a period of fourteen days from the date of publication of Public
Notice of Intent to Issue a Federally Enforceable State Operating Permit. Written
comments should be provided to the Department of Environmental Protection,
Post Office Box 2549, Fort Myers, Florida 33902-2549. Any written comments
filed shall be made available for public inspection. If written comments received
result in a significant change in the proposed agency action, the Department shall
revise the proposed permit and require, if applicable, another Public Notice.
The Department will issue the permit witb the attached conditions unless a timely
petition for an administrative hearing is filed pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57 ES., before the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning
for a hearing are set forth below.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the proposed permitting deci-
sion may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57, F.S. The petition must contain the information set forth be-
low and must be filed (received) in the Office of General Counsel of the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection, 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station
#35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. Petitions filed by the permit applicant or
any of the parties listed below must be filed within fourteen days of receipt of this
notice of intent. Petitions filed by any persons other than those entitled to written
notice under Section 120.60(3), ES. must be filed within fourteen days of publi-
cation of the public notice or within fourteen days of receipt of this notice of in-
tent, whichever occurs first. Under Section 120.60(3), FS., however, any person
who asked the Department for notice of agency action may file a petition within
fourteen days of receipt of that notice, regardless of the date of publication. A pe-
titioner shall mall a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated
above at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a petition within the ap-
propriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right to request an
administratve determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, ES.
or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as a party to it Any subsequent
intervention will be only at the approval of the presiding officer upon the tiling of a
motio n compliance with Rule 28-106.205, EA.C.
All petitioner tiled under these rules shall contain:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or iden-
tfication number, if known;
d(b) The name, address, and telephone number of the pettioner; the name, ad-
dress, and telephone number of the petitioner's representative, If any, which shall
be the address for service purposes during the course of the proceeding; and an

agency determination;
(c) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency de-
cision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the peti-

an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the peittioner, stating precisely the action
petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency s proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts upon which the Department's ac-
tion is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall con-
tain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301,
F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be dif-
ferent from the position taken by th taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial inter-
ests will be affected by any such final decision of the Department on the
cordance with the requirements set forth above.
Mediation is not available in this proceeding.
n addition to the above, a person subject to regulation has a right to apply for a vari-
ance from or waiver of the requirements of particular rules, on certain conditions,
under Section 120.542, ES. The relief provided by this state statute applies only
to state rules, not statutes, and not to any federal regulatory requirements. Apply-
tioanfor an administrative hearing or exercising any other right that a person may
have in relation to the action proposed in this notice of intent
The application for a variance or waiver is made by filing a petition with the Office of
General Counsel of the Department of Environmental Protection, 3900 Common-
wealth Boulevard, Mail Station #35, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-3000. The peti-
tion must specify the following information: (a) The name, address, and telephone
number of the petitioner; (b) The name, address, and telephone number of the at-
torney or qualified representative of the petitioner, if any; c) Each rule or portion
of a rule from which a variance or waiver is requested; (d) The citation to the stat-
te underlying (implemented by) the rule identified in (c) above; (e) The type of
action requested; (I) The specific facts that would justify a variance or waiver for
the petitioner; (g) The reason why the variance or waiver would serve the purpos-
es of the underying statute (implemented by the rule); and (h( A statement
whether the variance or waiver is permanent or temporary and, if temporary, a
statement of the dates showing the duration of the variance or waiver requested.
The Department will grant a variance or waiver when the petition demonstrated both
that the application of the rule would create a substantial hardship or violate prin-
ciples of fairness, as each of these terms is defined in Section 120.542(2), ES.
and that the purpose of the underlying statute will be or has been achieved by oth-
er means by the Petitioner.
Persons subject to regulation pursuant to any federally delegated or approved air
program should be aware that Florida is specifically not authorized to issue vari-
ances or waivers from any requirements of any such federally delegated or ap-
proved program. The requirements of the program remain fully enforceable by the
Administrator of the EPA and by any person under the Clean Air Act unless and
until the Administrator separately approves any variance or waiver in accordance
with the procedures of the federal program.

Interview with Senator
Biden
Damon Weaver and Amari An-

give by Senator Joe Biden at the
Kravis Center. They were given full
press credentials as they filmed
Senator Biden giving his speech
and the reactions of those around
them. They were also granted a
personal interview with Senator
Biden. Both students were thrilled


with the chance to be so involved
with the political process.

Florida celebrates school breakfast week


TALLAHASSEE-Governor
Charlie Crist recently signed a
resolution proclaiming Sept.15-
19, 2008, as the second annual
Florida School Breakfast Week.
The Florida Department of Edu-
cation's.Food and Nutrition Man-
agement Office and the Florida
Dairy Council will celebrate the
week with the theme: "Super
Foods Create Super Heroes," to
honor local heroes, including sol-
diers, law enforcement, firefight-
ers, family and health care profes-
sionals. A themed menu has also
been created for schools to pro-
mote the availability of breakfast
for all students, and the strong
link between eating a nutritious
breakfast and improved academ-


ic achievement and physical per-
formance.
"Students who begin their day
with a healthy meal are more
alert and have shown improved
memory and problem solving
skills that will help them succeed
in school," said Education Com-
missioner Dr. Eric J. Smith. "By
promoting healthy eating across
the state, more students will reap
the benefits of improved academ-
ic performance and health."
During Florida School Break-
fast Week, students will focus on
physical activity, academic ex-
cellence, and the importance of
starting each day with a nutritious
breakfast. Research shows that
behavioral, emotional, and aca-


demic problems are more preva-
lent among children with hunger;
however, academic .performance
and readiness are enhanced
when students start their day with
a nutritious meal.
In Florida, more than 488,000
school breakfast meals are served
daily to students, whereas the
national school lunch, program
serves an average of 1.28 million
lunch meals each day.

food and nutrition in .Florida

Glades Central dominates in home victory


Glades Day, Pahokee
also win big during
Friday contests

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE The Palm
Beach Central Broncos knew that
playing Glades Central was going
to be a tough test for them.
What they probably did not
think, however, was that Jon Bos-
tic, Palm Beach County's top over-
all prospect, would be thoroughly
ineffective against the Raiders.
In the Raiders 36-7 blowout
win over the Broncos, Bostic was
held to just seven yards on six car-
ries.
While Bostic played defense at
outside linebacker, Glades Central
prevented him from being a ma-
jor factor throughout the contest.
Glades Central's offense was
just simply dominant as Leron
'L.J.' Thomas was 10-for-1 6 pass-
ing with 204 yards and three
touchdowns in the Sept. 12 con-
test.
Rantavious Wooten, a fu-
ture LSU wide receiver, caught
Thomas's first touchdown pass
with 29.9 seconds left in the first
quarter.
That came after an Andre Ed-
wards interception return with
40.6 seconds left in the first.
With 8.2 seconds left in the
quarter, Glades Central's Hygens
Succes scored on a 33-yard inter-
ception return to put the Raiders
up 14-7.
Fred Pickett, who has recently
picked up offers from Florida
State and West Virginia, caught


a 10-yard touchdown pass with
3:59 left in the second quarter.
The Raiders defense put on
display a combination of speed
and power, something that Palm
Beach Central just couldn't han-
dle.
Glades Central forced three
interceptions in the game, while
allowing just 141 total yards on 43
plays.
Palm. Beach Central averaged
just 3.27 yards per play, passing
and rushing combined.
Glades Central allowed only
six first downs in the game to
Palm Beach Central.
Wooten, who led all receivers
with three receptions for 79 yards,
scored again in the third quarter -
a 23-yard pass from Thomas.
Vinny Jones, one of Glades
Central's running backs, scored
on a 4-yard touchdown run in
the third quarter to complete the
scoring for the game.
Antonio McCloude led all
rushers with 89 yards on 13 car-
ries, even though he did not score
a touchdown.
Antwon Chisolm didn't play
against Palm Beach Central due
to injury.
He's out for the next game
against Palm Beach Gardens but
will return for the Sept. 26 show-
down with Clewiston in the Sugar
Bowl.
Though Glades Central domi-
nated in this contest, the most im-
pressive stat perhaps came from
the penalties area.
Palm Beach Central actu-
ally had more penalty yards than
Glades Central (55-50), something
the Raiders can be happy with.
Glades Central has a 2-0 record
going into their next home game


against Palm Beach Gardens,
while Palm Beach Central is 1-1.
Glades Day 34, Benjamin 0:
Kelvin Taylor, the son of NFL Pro
Bowler Fred Taylor, led the Gators
rushing attack with 14 carries for
111 yards and two touchdowns.
The eighth-grader is now the
starting running back for Glades
Day after Brandon Dean, a senior,
suffered untimely injuries to his
ACL and MCL, effectively ending
his season.
The Gators offense, engineered
by quarterback Bo Schlecter, had
no turnovers as he was 8-for-
13 passing with 172 yards and a
touchdown.
Senior wide receiver Deandre
Jackson, Schlecter's go-to guy,
led all of Palm Beach County last
week with five receptions for 118
yards and a touchdown.
Glades Day also recorded an
astounding 12 first downs in their
thoroughly dominant game.
Tomorrow night, Glades Day
(2-0) looks to impose its will on
Clewiston as they travel to Cane
Field.
The state's No. 1 ranked team
in Class. IA will be competing
against a team that has come off a
.23-6 win over LaBelle, led by Dar-
ris Hughes' area-leading 244 rush-
ing yards and three touchdowns
last week.
Expect tomorrow's battle to
be a very close game, with domi-
nating performances by both Tay-
lor and Hughes.
The team who has the fewest
turnovers should win this con-
test.
Pahokee 40, King's Acad-
emy 7: Senior quarterback
Nu'Keese Richardson led the way
once again as he three for three

With the fans entertained, the Glades Central Marching Band gave a rousing performance

touchdown passes, two to fellow
senior Dexter Holmes (4 recep-
tions, 111 yards).
Richardson, who went 13-19
for 263 yards and an interception,
also scored a rushing touchdown
in the game.
Vincent Smith, arguably the
area's best running back, led the
r,,chints ,tt lr Awrith 19 arri~,C for


81 yards and two touchdowns.
Junior wide receiver Dennis
Hall, a cousin of Pahokee alum
and NFL Pro Bowler Anquan Bol-
din, caught three passes for 57
yards and a touchdown.

ils (2-0) look for another blowout
victory, this time against Palm

nation's top-ranked team, accord-
ing to USA Today.

Tiger wideout Damion Smith pulls in a sideline pass to stop the clock


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston Tigers got their
first win of the young 2008 season
on Friday night as they outran and
out defended the LaBelle Cow-
boys at Cane Field.
The victory was also another
first that being Tiger Head
Coach Joe Roth's initial victory.
The Tigers squared their re-'
cord at 1-1 and LaBelle fell to 0-2.
The fans got an early glimpse
of what was in store for the eve-
-ning -when Tiger tailback Darris
Hughes took the handoff on the
first play of the game and raced
untouched for a 65-yard touch-
down.
The extra .point attempt by
kicker Isandro Marquez was just
off the mark.
LaBelle took the following kick-
off and mounted a drive down to
the Tiger 25 but handed the ball
over on downs at that point.
The rest of the opening period
was a matter of punt exchanges.
Clewiston punted again on
the second play of the second pe-
riod and the Cowboy return man
muffed the ball and Tiger Dillon
Irey was there to pounce on it at
midfield.
After a short gain and a 10-
yard holding penalty against
Clewiston, Hughes took another
handoff and this time went up the
middle, swerved'to the sidelines
and rolled 57 -yards for another
score.
Isandro's extra point kick was
perfect and the Tigers were on
top, 13-0.
The Cowboys went three and
out and a short punt gave the Ti-
gers good field position at their
35.
Fullback Leonard Newton
bulldozed for 10 yards but the
Cowboy defenders stripped the
ball at the end of the run.
Cowboy sophomore quarter-
back Marcus Simmons scrambled
from pass formation and then
found tailback Kane Owens wide
open and threw a strike.
Tiger defensive back John Wil-
liams made a touchdown saving
tackle, giving the Cowboys a first
and goal at the one.
The Tiger defense then made a
textbook goal line stand.
They stopped two 'running
plays for no gain and then line-
backer Duke Ewan sacked Sim-
mons for a four-yard loss and.a
fourth down pass from Simmons


fell incomplete.
The Tiger offense then got to
show their stuff, taking the ball at
their five-yard stripe with 4:39 re-
maining in the half.
Mixing the strong running
game of Newton and Hughes and
five pass completions by Mar-
quez, Clewiston moved the ball
90 yards to the Cowboy 5.
As time ran out, Marquez split
the uprights with a 23-yard field
goal to push the Tigers to a 16-0
lead.
LaBelle finally found some
consistent offensive spark'as they
started the second half.
Simmons completed a short
pass to wideout Dorian Deas,
then he scooted for 10 yards and
then he hit Deas in the flats with
a swing pass and Deas weaved
through the Tiger secondary for a
47-8-yard touchdown.
The extra point attempt was
marred by a high snap and the
kicker grabbed the ball and was
covered by Tigers to snuff out the
effort.
The Tigers then put together
an 11 play drive that chewed over
five minutes off the game clock
but ran out of steam at the Cow-
boy 35, turning the ball over on
downs.
On their first down, LaBelle
quarterback Simmons' pass was
intercepted by Tiger linebacker
Leonard Newton who returned
the ball 20 yards to the Cowboy
1.8.
Clewiston could not take ad-
vantage of such good field posi-
tion and gave the ball back on
downs.
The Tiger defense then. held
the Cowboys three and out, forc-
ing a punt from their end zone.
The ball went out of bounds
at the LaBelle 48 and on the next
play, Darris Hughes was off to the
races for his third score of the
game with 33 seconds remaining
.in the third period.
Isandro Marquez' point after
kick was good and ended scoring
for the night.
Darris Hughes amassed 244
yards rushing on 17 carries and all
Tiger runners rolled for 317 rush-
ing yards. ,
i Quarterback Isandro Marquez
completed 10 of 19 passes and
had no interceptions.
He used virtually all of his re-
ceivers. Wideout Jamarcus Smith
caught 4 for 36 yards and flanker


iNl/Jen rEarwicK


Damion Smith snagged 3 for 22
yards.
The Tiger defense was tough,
holding the Cowboys to 38 yards
rushing on 29 tries. The Cowboy
passing game fared better with
143 yards on 8 completions out of
13 throws.
However, two of the catches
accounted for 91 of those yards.
Newton led the defense with 7
tackles, a shared quarterback
sack and the interception.
Linebacker Dillon Irey had 5
tackles, two sacks and a fumble
recovery.
About the only negative on
the Tiger performance was in the
penalty arena.
The Tigers were flagged to
times for "91 yards, with. most of
that being on.the offense.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth was
happy to ring up the first Tiger
win of the year.
He said, "We are proud of this
team. They've worked hard and'
it paid off tonight. This was good
for us and will help with our con-
fidence level. But, we've still got
work to do and we'll get started
on that tomorrow."
Hughes was excited after the
game.
"Our offensive line did a great
job tonight and opened holes,"
he said.
"Once I got open on those long
runs, all the work we've been do-
ing on speed really paid off," he
added.
Next up, the Tigers will host
the undefeated and loaded Glades
Day Gators at 7:30 p.m. on Friday
night.
Clewiston, with only 26 play-

County
Continued From Page 1

Palm Beach County and the entire
Glades area
The decision sparked outrage
from a host of local leaders, in-
cluding Commissioner Wilson.
"I'm in total shock, I just can't
believe it," the South Bay com-
missioner said.
"We all understand where
Karen is coming from, her district
is near Martin County," he contin-
ued.
"We thought we had a county
commissioner that was for us;
but the bottom line, he is not for
the Glades."
The District 6 commissioner
begs to differ on that view, saying
that he's '100 percent' in support
of the inland port coming to the
Glades.
"It doesn't matter where it is,
as long as it's in the Glades," the
county commissioner said.
"I want all of the land to be
included in the plan of the inland
port."
What County Commissioner
Santamaria meant was that there
are well over 300,000 acres avail-
able in the Glades area.
He said that only 3,000 acres
that's actually needed for the pro-
posed inland port.
The land in question includes
approximately 150,000 acres
owned by Florida Crystals and
about 187,000 acres currently
owned by U.S. Sugar Corpora-
tion.
The assets owned by U.S. Sug-
ar were key to the June 24 buyout
by the South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD).
It's set to be sold by the Clewis-
ton-based sugar entity.
But perhaps the primary rea-
son the county commissioner
decided to vote against it came to
one company: Florida Crystals.
The sugar firm, owned by the
Fanjul family, has 9,000 acres of
land on its Okeelanta site, which

still so much work out here that
needs to be done," Captain Silva
said in an e-mail.
"Serving this community has
truly been the highlight of my ca-
reer, and I can honestly say I have
met some of the finest people
+ ayisvhere during my tenure in
the Glades."
Captain Silva's last day at Dis-
trict Five may have been on Friday,
Sept. 12, but it was one that those
close to him won't soon forget.


Land
Continued From Page 1

The law firm gave the water
district at least two options to
consider as the land acquisition
deal moves ahead.
Those suggestions include the
water management district con-
ducting a re-sale of all assets to a
third party and a possibility of leas-


is south of South Bay.
"We would be at a disadvan-
tage to increase the value of the
Okeelanta property," County
Commissioner Santamaria said.
"The price of the land will be
an important element to where
the inland port will go."
It was revealed that the Port
of Palm Beach is expected to be
making its final decision some-
time in November.
"We'll be less competitive if
we limit the property to Okee-
lanta," the county commissioner
said.
"I don't work for Florida Crys-
tals, why should I give them an
advantage?"
The District 6 commissioner
said that buying agricultural land
is cheaper than property that's re-
zoned as industrial.
"Once we know where the in-
land port will go, then we can ex-
pedite the re-zoning process," the
District 6 commissioner said.
He added that he doesn't have
a problem with Florida Crystals,
it's just that he doesn't want the
firm to have an edge over other
property owners.
"I want all of the Glades to be
available so we could be more
competitive with Martin County,"
District 6 Commissioner Santa-
maria said.
"The cheaper the land, the
more advantageous it is for the
Glades to be selected."
Gaston Cantens, the vice-pres-
ident of Florida Crystals, strongly
disagrees with the county com-
missioner's view on competition.
"Is there another landowner
that has called him and said
they're interested?" Mr. Castens
asked himself aloud.
"No, that's a lame excuse and
it's outrageous that Santamaria
would vote against it."
And for that, there are already
protests against the District 6
commissioner to serve in his
next term, which would begin in
2010.
"It started when we went on
the buses, on our way back home


Prior to his colleagues taking
him out to lunch, Captain Silva of-
ficiated a dedication to the fami-
lies on Donta Manuel and Jona-
than Wallace.
Both men, who served as dep-
uties with the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO), were
tragically killed in an accident on
Nov. 28, 2007.

which lasted for approximately
15 minutes, took place at the site

sioner Wilson said.
"I will campaign hard against
him in the next election and as a
matter of fact, I've already started
it," he continued.
"It's not a secret I'm doing this,
I don't care who knows about
it."
The environmentalist
could be major players
in proposed deal
County commissioners said
last Tuesday that the proposed
inland port, in terms of land use,
could be as big as Delray Beach.
,, However, in order for the proj-
ect to come to fruition, it must
overcome the environmentalists.
That includes the Audubon
Society and the Sierra Club, two
firms that are highly concerned
with the restoration of the Ever-
glades.


of Transportation, and PBSO
Lieutenant Chistopher Keane,
helped spearhead efforts to con-
struct posts in honor of the fallen
heroes.
Rev. Patricia Wallace, the
mother of Deputy Wallace, was
honored by the tribute.
"I thank you so much," Ms.
Wallace said to Captain Silva. "I
got pure love for you, nothing will
change that."
Captain Silva instructed all of
the deputies to make sure that the
posts are well-kept at all times.
He even revelaed that it's pos-
sible that a small garden will be


a variety of corporate, litigation,
regulatory and transactional cas-
es.
According to published re-
ports, last year, Sidley Austin LLP
was named one of the best na-
tional law firms, based on surveys
of general counsel.
The statement of principles,
regarding the scope of the trans-
action, is a non-binding contract.
When that happens, plans are
flexible and subject to change at


For starters, a proposed flow-
way, also supported by the water
district, is planned between the
Miami Canal and the North New
River Canal.
That land, which covers more
than 35,000 acres, spans between
Lake Harbor and South Bay.
It also includes the Okeelanta
site and one of the proposed ar-
eas up for selection regarding the
inland port.
The flow-way, environmental-
ists say, is proposed to cover from
Lake Okeechobee to Miami.
"The natural flow of the Ever-
glades was stopped by Big Sug-
ar," said Alexandria Larson, who
claims to be a preservationist.
"It existed for thousands of
years that was interrupted by the
production and growing of sugar.
"I want to preserve what's left
of the Everglades," Ms. Larson
continued.
"I just want all of our kids in
future generations to have fresh
water."


put in place to beautify the posts,
located on the southbound side
of State Road 715, less than a mile
south of Pahokee.
"On behalf of the Wallace and
Manuel families, I know they're
appreciative," Captain Silva said
during the dedication ceremony.
"Let this be one that can serve
as an inspiration," the captain
continued.
"Deputies, as you drive by, if
you see anything happen to these
signs, remove them as soon as
possible, we'll contact DBI and
have them replaced."

any givefi time, while setting forth
a proposed path of action.
In July, not long after the June
24 land acquisition deal between
U.S. Sugar and the water district,
staff reportedly began negotia-
tions with the proposed contract.
According to the water dis-
trict's schedule, the purchase
contract is set to be presented to
the public sometime this fall.
Also, the public will have an
opportunity to see the underlying


Julie Hill, the Everglades Policy
Associate for the state's Audubon
Society, said that she's neither for
or against the idea of an inland
port.
However, Ms. Hill makes it
clear that a location needs to be
compatible to restoration.
"The main underlying issue
is that right now, we don't know
what the restoration plans are
with the Everglades Agricultural
Area," Ms. Hill said.
"So what we want to prevent
is moving forward with the in-
land port plans because it would
threaten the accomplishments of
the restoration benefits."
According to Ms. Hill, studies
show that the existing rail lines
around the Glades may not be
able to properly handle the heavy
cargo set to come to the proposed
port.
The cargo in question centers
around shipping from the coastal
ports the Port of Palm Beach,
Port Everglades and the Port of


Bussey, who's a close friend of the
Wallace and Manuel families, said
that Captain Silva will be greatly
missed in the Glades.
"This has been an awesome
man from the beginning," Lt.
Bussey said to the captain. "You
did more than what was required
of you."
The last major event that Cap-
tain Silva oversaw in the Glades
on Friday was one that he may
never forget.
The next day, on Saturday,
Sept. 13, he attended a banquet
in honor of the fallen deputies.
"I am overwhelmed with the


details of the proposed contract
prior to Governing Board con-
sideration, water district officials
said.
It was revealed that 100,000 of
the 187,000 acres purchased will
be used by the water district.
It is not yet known who will be
using the r6st of the land in the
June 24 purchase.
"We need as much disclosure
as possible," said Shannon Este-
noz, the water district's govern-


Miami to the Glades, which in-
clude containers for distribution
and storage.
"We are not saying that we
don't want it in the Glades at all,"
Ms. Hill said.
"It's just that we don't want
people to rush into planning a
port with all these unanswered
questions."
Jonathan Ullman, an Ev-
erglades senior regional field
representative, agrees with the
Audubon Society's stance on the
inland port.
"The land that are being pro-
posed for the port are directly
where the missing, link to the Ev-
erglades is," Mr. Ullman said.
"That land is going to be used
for water storage."
Mr. Ullman vehemently de-
.nied allegations of indifference to
humankind after being pressed
about the matter.
"I care about everybody's
lives, I really do," Mr. Ullman said
in defense.
"If we don't restore the Ever-
glades and have the land to store,
move and clean the water, then
we're looking at an economical
and environmental collapse."
Mr. Cantens has reservations
about the flow-way plans, which
could adversely affect the munici-
pality of South Bay, the proposed
inland port site and the Okeelanta
mill.
"In order for the Okeelanta site
to be in the flow-way, the city of
South Bay would have to be in
the flow-way," Mr. Cantens ex-
plained.
"If we're supposed to be in the
flow-way, then South Bay has to
be flooded.
"If what the environmentalist
say is true, then Okeelanta has to
be re-purchased by the state and
South Bay has to be eliminated,'.'
Mr. Cantens continued.
"The circumstances and strugi
gles of the lives of individuals art
not on the top of their list."

Friends and Neighbors,
It has been my pleasure to serve you, as a Law Enforcement Officer, over the past decade in Hendry County. That is why I am committed to
providing you with a better quality Law Enforcement Agency Your Sheriffs Office should be highly trained, effective, knowledgeable and
courteous. Friends, I ask you, "Are we there yet?" and the answer is "No". That is why I want to be your next Sheriff. My plans for the Hendry
County Sheriffs Office and the citizens of Hendry County will be mapped out over the next few weeks for you to see. These plans will
address current issues relating to the job, the agency and the people most affected by these areas and that is you, the citizen. I will not only
point out the problem, I will then lay out my plan on how to solve these problems. Most notably, we need more Deputies on the streets,
answering calls, patrolling your neighborhoods and working with you to suppress crime. As I have stated before, the current Administration
is full of highly paid positions that have little or no effect on the department. There are people in positions with no real obligation to you or
their specific duty has little benefit to the community. By simply re-allocating the monies designated for these "non-essential" positions
and using those funds to provide additional Deputies to every part of the county it will immediately impact our community When
managing a budget, your spending must be prioritized. As Sheriff, I will place the citizens of Hendry County as the top pri-
ority. Another problem that I have seen first hand is the lack of cooperation with Federal, State and local Agencies.
Together I plan'to work hand in hand with other Law Enforcement Agencies to better serve you the citizens of Hendry
County I will work hard to re-establish working relationships with these Agencies and Organizations. By doing this it
will provide the Sheriffs Office with areas of intelligence, specified training, access to various resources and use of
critical emergency equipment in times of need. I will work to strengthen these relationships so that we can become
i more effective in the times when you need it most. Friends, I ask you to simply look around... 'Are we there yet?"
