Special to The Sun
PAHOKEE -- She is not
just another pretty face or an-
other beauty queen. Kayla
Collier, 18 of Pahokee, is a
motivated, caring, and inspira-
tional young woman who was
crowned Miss Florida Teen USA
2009 on October 5 in Davie,
Florida.
"Pageants are not just about
being pretty. This was months
in the making and I worked re-
ally hard. I was shocked to find
out I won. This is all surreal for
me," said Kayla.

Kayla is the daughter of Dar-
rell and Claire Collier. Mr. Collier
is a mill operator at U.S. Sugar
Inc. in Clewiston and Mrs. Col-
lier is a first grade elementary
teacher at Gove Elementary in
Belle Glade.
"We're beyond words proud
of Kayla. It's still sinking in and
we're grasping what just hap-
pened. She is as beautiful on
the inside as she is on the out-
side," said Claire.
Kayla's journey to the crown
was not without difficulties.
While trying on homecom-
ing dresses two years ago,
Claire noticed an abnormal
spot on her daughter's back
and immediately took Kayla to
a doctor. Several days later, the
Collier family received a terrify-
ing call Kayla had melanoma,

my mom told me that the doc-

but my mom said that I would
make it through and every-
thing would be okay," Kayla
recalled.
She had surgery to remove
the skin cancer and has made a
complete recovery. Now, Kayla
speaks to teenagers about the
risks of getting skin cancer.

Fuel costs, other
factors cut into
farming profits

By Nina G. Wills
The Sun
Area farmers and their busi-
nesses are recovering from a
difficult year due to rising costs
and a sluggish economy.
"The economy in general
was a drag on our business.
We hope that there is relief in
the very near future," said J.D.
Poole, vice president and sales
manager of Pioneer Growers
Inc. of Belle Glade.
Farmers rely on a healthy
market and demand for fresh
produce to sustain their busi-
nesses and remain profitable.
Last season, the demand for
fresh produce declined causing
the prices to decline as well.
Consumers spent their money
on gas and home mortgages
and purchased only necessities
from grocery stores, according
to Poole.
"With less demand, higher
input costs, and stagnant pric-
ing the cost of doing business
is significantly changing within
the U.S. With exponential price
increases in fuel and, fertilizers,
farming is expensive," said
Mike Robinson, vice president


of the Eastern Vegetable Divi-
sion of Duda Farm Fresh Foods
Inc.
The rising cost of oil has af-
fected nearly every operation
on a farm and was a major fac-
tor last season.
Growers not only buy fuel
to operate tractors and farm ve-
hicles but also to transport their
produce to market. Many pesti-
cides and fertilizers the growers
use are petroleum based prod-
ucts. The cost of tires, replace-
ment parts and wax for cartons
has also increased.
"The costs were so high
compared to previous seasons
that our profit/loss position
couldn't be determined until
our entire crop had been har-
vested and marketed," said
Jeremy Fountain, general man-
ager of Grower's Management
Inc. of Belle Glade.
Although the price of oil has
declined in recent months, ,it
could be awhile before farmers
see any significant cost reduc-
tions.
Area growers find ways to
reduce costs and improve ef-
ficiency such as repairing leaky
fuel lines on vehicles.
"Fuel prices have really put
a strain on us. We can't control
the cost of fuel, but we can con-

Preparing Athletes for Academic Success


By Nina G. Wills
Special to The Sun
Local student-athletes who
need assistance in reading, writ-
ing, and mathematics are en-
rolled in Preparing Athletes for
Academic Success (PAAS) a
program developed by Palm
Beach Community College
(PBCC) Belle Glade. '
"There is a definite need for
this program in the community.
We have identified students who
are at risk of falling through the
cracks," said Professor Nick La-
Rocca of Palm Beach Communi-
ty College who designed PAAS.


Sophomores receive instruc-
tion in remedial courses and are
acquiring the "building blocks"
to succeed in high school and
further their education. The pro-
gram can also help student-ath-
letes boost their grades to qualify
for college scholarships.
"Some students say they are
attending an after-school pro-
gram at the Boys and Girls Club
.or another organization. These
students in PAAS can say they
are attending college," said Bev-
erly Robinson, PBCC provost at
Belle Glade.
Student-athletes were select-
ed by their high school athletic


directors and counselors to par-
ticipate in PAAS. The Palm Beach
County School District provided
LaRocca with scores from diag-
nostic tests that measured a stu-
dent's aptitude in certain areas.
LaRocca uses study materials
from Florida's Comprehensive
Assessment Test (FCAT) as the
curriculum and "customizes in-
struction" for each. student's.spe-

Youth leader is
inspired by a
life-changing
experience

By Naji Tobias

GLADES In tough times,
effective leaders can emerge,
changing the face of the com-
munities around them.
Enter Gregory Williams,
who has been employed by
Street Beat Inc. for a year as its
youth services coordinator.
Not only that, he is a rever-
end at the Pahokee Church of


God, where he has been the
youth pastor for six years.
The reverend, who is known
in the area as a powerful speak-
er, teaches Sunday School at
the Junior High Level (ages 11-
13).
He taught both Norman Grif-
fith Jr. and Carl Lee Booth Jr. a
few years ago in the same class,
where emphasis was placed on
letting a higher authority take
charge in eadh decision they
made in life.
Rev. Williams, who under-
went a life-changing experi-
ence years ago, talks about
issues such as his take on the
current state of the Glades area
and what could be done to bet-


ter its future.
Question: What makes
you look forward to your day?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
Knowing that this is the day
of the Lord and He gives me a
new mercy with the rising of
the sun.
Everything I will encounter
in that day, I will do so with the
Lord.
Question: As a mentor for
both Norman and Carl, you
obviously have been greatly af-
fected by the recent events sur-
rounding the two.

The Lord builds a house!


By Jackie Miller
I don't know about you, but
it upset me when an elementary
grade school teacher out in Cali-
fornia took her class on a "field
,trip" to her own lesbian mar-
riage.
With such as this going on I'm
afraid the frog is in hot water and
he is almost cooked!
Psalm 127:1 reads, "Unless the
Lord builds the house, its builders
labor in vain.
Unless the Lord watches over
the city, the watchmen stand
guard in vain.
What does the Lord build into
a marriage that the world does
not?
1. God builds on commitment.
If the Lord is not in the marriage,
it often deteriorates into a trial-
and-error experiment.
The world regards marriage as
a human institution that can be
easily dissolved "if things don't


work out," when the romance
fades and the inevitable irritations
mount.
But when the Lord builds the
house, the couple both mean it
when they say, "'Til death do us
part."
When the romance fades, the
partners think, "I've got to find a
way to work this out, because I
made a vow to God to stay with
this person regardless, and I don't
want to be miserable all my life."
2. He builds on purity.
If the Lord builds the house,
Christians are careful not to give
Satan a foothold through drugs,
alcoholism, pornography, abuse,
unfaithfulness, and other sins of
impurity that are so devastating to.
a marriage.
The godly couple protects their
relationship from these primary
enemies of the home by submit-
ting to God's standards.
3. He builds on a common


value system.
Just as the sun holds our so-
lar system together, so the Son
of God is the unifying force in a
marriage.
Attending church together;
praying and reading the Bible
together; developing Christian
friends who reinforce the rela-
tionship; having the same attitude
toward work, child rearing, mon-
ey matters, entertainment choices
- all serve to solidify the home.
When the Lord isn't building
the house, those areas can be-
come sources of "irreconcilable
differences."
4. He builds on the power of
the Holy Spirit.
"The fruit of the spirit is love,
joy, peace, patience, kindness,
goodness, faithfulness, gentle-
ness, and self-control" (Galatians
5:22-23).
Those unselfish, edifying quali-
ties don't come naturally, but they


are always deepening in the life of
the Spirit-filled couple and serve
to solidify the relationship.
There's a constant restlessness
in the heart of man, but the Holy
Spirit grants peace and content-
ment.
"In vain you rise early and stay
up late, toiling for food to eat for
He grants sleep to those He loves"
(Psalm 127:2).
A marriage counselor drew a
triangle on a chart in front of an:
engaged couple.
At the pinnacle he wrote,
"GOD." In the bottom two cor-
ners he wrote, "HUSBAND" and
"WIFE."
Then, tracing the ascending
lines of the triangle, he spoke
words of eternal wisdom: "Notice
that the closer you get to God, the
closer you are to each other."
Marriage is between a Man
and a Woman!


Compassion, combat, and fatigues


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone was commenting.
on the upcoming elections as a
group of us were gathered and
sharing thoughts.
The comment that got an
"Amen!" from everyone was that
"I'm just tired of it all."
This has been one of the lon-
gest, if not the longest political
campaigns in our history; and
now that it is coming to an end, I
wonder if there are people suffer-
ing from "Political Fatigue."
It isn't that the messages aren't
important, or that what is being
said should be ignored.
It isn't that people don't need
information, it just a case of repe-
tition wearing down a level of tol-
erance to a message that seems
to be coming across again and
again and again.
I get asked frequently to sup-
port some cause or need, or
donate to some charity or cam-
paign.
I look at the amount that is
spent for advertising it and won-
der if the funds might be better
used for direct support rather than
trying to get others to support it.
+ The number of catalogues that
are received in the mail, glossy pa-
per and multicolored, well-bound


and frequently updated, make me
wonder about the prices for the
items within them.
I've often thought that maybe I
can do better with someone that
mails /out an occasional flyer in
black-and-white and who con-
tributes less to my "advertising
fatigue."
There is something about
"overkill" that turns me off.
I-have learned instinctively to
"tune out" or change channels
or throw away some mail that
comes marked "important" on
the envelope, or to hang up when
there is no voice on the other end
of the telephone but only a re-
cording.
A famous doctor referred to
this ability as "selective inatten-
tion." It frequently happens over
dinner tables or at lectures or
when someone nags once too
often.
The difficulty is that every now
and again something important
comes through during one of
those moments or from a person
who has too often been tuned
out, and we miss something.
.Someone did a study of stu-
dents learning history.
There was some history in the
fourth grade curriculum and his-
tory was taught again in the sev-
enth grade, but students would
say "We've heard this before"


and would not listen.
It was taught again in the
eleventh grade, but it was also
taught twice before and students
wouldn't be likely to pay atten-
tion.
If they were to go on to college,
it might come up once more and.
become a real teaching chore to
make it alive and interesting, es-
pecially when it was required and
repetitive at the same time.
The trouble is that we miss
something along the way when
"fatigue" sets in.
Whenever I begin to teach a
course, I try to let students know
why it is important to study that
particular subject.
Once that is clear, the place
in life of what we were studying
gives a reason other than "be-
cause it's required" and makes it
easier to see relevance, and not
shift into a mental neutral gear.
In all of the advertising and
overkill, there is a still small voice
that we hear every once and
awhile that says "Have faith" or
"Believe in God" or "God is the
answer."
It says "God has a purpose in
your life and even if "We've heard
it all before" it might be important
to stop, listen and give it our at-
tention.
Even when we think we know,
we miss something if we tune


out. Even if it seems boring or
even if we have our reasons or
even if we're mad at God, or the
Church and all of those disagree-
able people who seem to attend
them, there is something to be
heard.
My answer for "message fa-
tigue" is to encourage people to
ask the .questions that are on their
minds and find answers for them
that are satisfying to them in re-
turn... real questions that deserve
real answers.
That's not saying "You've got to
believe:.." or "because I said so..."
or by trying to wear someone out
by repetition until "religious fa-
tigue" sets in and they give up. It
is in answering, helping, sharing,
doing, being an example, being
as humanly honest as I can.
The first book of Kings talks
about a still, small voice.
God reveals Himself to Elijah
not in great winds or powerful
earthquakes or devastating fires,
but in a "still small voice (1 Kings
19:10)."
In the midst of all of the "fa-
tigues" that can cause us to ignore
or tune out, pray that we may still
hear the quiet, small voice that
really has something to say and
something we need to hear.

Why democracies fall


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I don't know about you, but I
have become somewhat cynical
of much of what I hear from many
of the politicians these days.
I have a hard time believing
that they will be able to do every-
thing they are promising they will
do, and it's hard trying to discern
the truths in who says what.
I find myself checking arid
trying to verify any information I
receive, including the following
quotes.
Who penned the quotes be-
low?
If one were to put one's faith
in the reliability of the Internet,
the obvious answer would be Al-
exander Tytler.
Despite their frequent use, the
authors) of the quotes are un-
known. The earliest usage I found
was in the 1950's.
President Ronald Reagan used
the first quote in several speeches
in 1964 and 1965, attributing it to
"Fraser Tydler."
The fatal sequence was used


in a speech delivered by Eugene
Wilson in 1950. It was years later
that they were put together.
My research leads me to sus-
pect that these quotes were prob-
ably coined by separate individu-
als in the first half of the twentieth
century.
The authors were probably
not famous people or respected
scholars, but rather private politi-
cal thinkers who got their words
in print, land whose words then
happened to strike a chord in oth-
ers.
We may not be able to say
for sure where the quotes came
from, but I believe the substance
of them stands especially in
what's happening around us in
these times.
Read and see what you think!
"A democracy cannot exist
as a permanent form of govern-
ment. It can only exist until the
voters discover that they can vote
themselves largesse (hand-outs)
from the public treasury. From
that moment on, the majority
always votes for the candidates


promising the most benefits from
the public treasury with the result
that a democracy always collaps-
es over loose fiscal policy."
It makes one think and won-
der what's happening in our lives
today, and to wonder where we
might be in the "fatal sequence":
"Great nations rise and fall.
People go from bondage to spiri-
tual faith, from spiritual faith to
great courage, from courage to
liberty, from liberty to abundance,
from abundance to complacency,
from complacency to apathy,
from apathy to dependence, and,
from dependence back again into
bondage."
It reminds me of what hap-
pened to the Israelites in their rise
and fall from greatness to bond-
age, and then rise and fall again.
It worries me about what
might be happening in our coun-
try today.
If the above statement is natu-
ral law, then we are doomed.
My faith in God persuades
me that, despite periods of weak
leadership, it is still possible for us


... .

..........[........


to check the downswing before it
is too late.
Democracies 'fall when people
turn to themselves and away from
God.
It is then that personal gain
becomes the end all to be all and
morals collapse in preference to
personal desires.
It is then when leaders will say
anything to get elected and feel
they can get away with just about
anything.
The Scriptures tell us not to
conform to the pattern of this
world, but be transformed by the
renewing of our minds,.
God promises, "If my people,
who are called by my name, will
humble themselves and pray and
seek my face and turn from their
wicked ways, then will I hear
from heaven and will forgive their
sin and will heal their land."
Some trust in chariots and
some in horses, but like the
psalmist, I trust in the name of the
LORD our God.

One Voice Becomes Many, Vote!


Voting for the World as it Should Be


By Michelle Obama
When I was a kid, my father
volunteered as a precinct captain
for the Democratic Party in our
neighborhood on the South Side
of Chicago. Some of my earliest
memories are of tagging along
as he went from door to door.
He registered people to vote. If
our neighbors needed absentee
ballots, he arranged it. He helped
them figure out how they'd get to
the voting booth on Election Day.
He did all this because he
believed in the value of each
person's voice in the political
process. But it took me years to
appreciate what he was teaching
me during those walks around
the neighborhood.
Like so many people, I took
my right to vote for granted. I
never had to march for it. I never
knew what it felt like to be turned
away while others were told that
their voice counted. So when I got
to vote for the first time, I did it
dutifully-but without any excite-
ment.
But now I feel differently. And
I hope every person in this coun-
try, young and old, can learn from
me. Because what my dad was
trying to show me was that voting
is not a dry responsibility. Partici-
pating in the political process is
challenging, fascinating and fun.
Many young Americans al-
ready know this. During the past
20 months, I've traveled to every
corner of the country with my


husband on his thrilling cam-
paign for the presidency. We have
been dazzled by the young people
we've met. Our country is full of
bright, curious, creative, and pas-
sionate young men and women,
who have an enormous capacity
for hard work and a deep belief
that a better world is possible.
I've seen this youthful energy
and optimism before-when I
met Barack, 20 years ago.
When we were first getting to
know one another, Barack took
me to a community meeting in a
neighborhood in Chicago where
people were working hard to get
back on their feet after local steel
plants shut down and jobs dried
up. There, Barack gave a talk
.about his experiences as a com-
munity organizer. He spoke about
the gap between the world as it
is and the world as it should be.
And he said that ordinary people
can narrow that gap, if they work
together for change.
I fell in love with that idea. It
conveys .a simple but powerful
truth, which is illustrated every
Election Day when people line
up to cast their ballots. When we
vote, we don't just choose a can-
didate. We choose to begin build-
ing the world as it should be.
For the young woman I met in
Colorado, it's a world where she
- can get the education she dreams
of, even though her parents don't
have a lot of money. For the men I
met in Virginia, it's a world where


returning soldiers never have to
worry about getting the mental
health care they might need. For
the students I met in Iowa, it's a
world where invest in clean-en-
ergy that ends our dependence
on foreign oil and protects our
environment. And for the woman
I met in New York, it's a world
where gays and lesbians can fi-
nally live free from discrimina-
tion.
When we vote in this upcom-
ing election, we'll be casting our
ballots for that world.
I've heard people say, "My vote
doesn't matter," "My vote won't
count," or, "I'm just one person..
What possible difference can I
make?" But this year, all our votes
matter more than ever.
If you are satisfied with the
world as it is, your choice this fall
is easy. But if you believe, as I do,
that we can change the world to-
gether, please join me in voting
this election cycle.
There are three ways to vote
in Florida but the easiest is to
vote early between Oct. 20 and
Nov. 2, when the lines will shorter
and you don't need to remember
your specific polling location. In
fact, any registered voter in Palm
Beach County can vote early at
Belle Glade City Hall from 10am-
6pm Monday through Friday, and
10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday and
Sunday. If you miss the early vote
period you can always cast your
ballot on Election Day, Nov. 4.


Voting is easy. It takes just a
minute, but it makes a huge dif-
ference. The Obama campaign
has set up a Website to help:
www.VoteforChange.com. There,
you can arrange for an absentee
ballot, find out if you're already
registered, and get information
on your polling place.
Share this information with
your friends, classmates, family
and. neighbors. And encourage
everyone you know to go to the
polls early between Oct. 20 and
Nov. 2, or on Tuesday, Nov. 4.
This year, I'll be voting for my
daughters' future and my father's
memory. I'll vote for the thou-
sands of regular folks who fought
to get me the right to vote. And
I'll vote for young people across
America-and. the. generations
of young people that will follow,
who will someday look back at
this time with gratitude that we
summoned the courage to begin
building the world as it should
be.
To early vote in the Glades:
Bring your driver's license or
other current identification card
showing your picture and your
signature to Belle Glade City Hall,
110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Blvd.
Early Voting is open from Mon-
day, Oct. 20 to Sunday, Nov. 2.
Hours: Monday thru Friday,
from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sat-
urday, Sunday, from 10 a.m. to 2
p.m.

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 Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee
on Nov. 30.
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
and (for some reason) 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 infor-
mation please call Paul at 561-
963-9906.

Florida Crystals and Energy Independence


Looking at
Greenhouse Gas
Reduction measures

By Jerry Karnas
Florida Climate Project Director
Environmental Defense Fund

Green groups are usually
known for singling out corpora-
tions that threaten the environ-
ment, but here in Florida dozens
of companies have been identified
as "Faces of Climate Change."
They are being praised for tak-
ing the initiative to solve environ-
mental problems.
In the process, these corpora-
tions are also finding that there
really is gold in green.
As the director of Environmen-
tal Defense Fund's "Faces of Cli-
mate Change" project, I identify
Florida businesses and entrepre-
neurs that are finding new ways
to meet the challenge of global
warming by implementing alter-
native eco-friendly ways to power
their operations and developing
clean energy solutions.
These companies range from
the Mosaic Company, which pro-
duces 150 megawatts of electric-
ity from waste heat enough to
power 50,000 homes to the Tal-
lahassee Antique Car Museum,
powered by solar, to Petro-Algae,
which is developing a technology
that can yield 14,000 gallons of
diesel from one acre of algae -
that's right, ready-to-use fuel from
a renewable microorganism.
Each of these Florida firms is
creating jobs and growing the


economy the old-fashioned way:
innovation.
They are finding solutions
to our toughest environmental
problems.
In the process, they're reduc-
ing our dependence on foreign
oil and helping to safeguard our
natural resources (not to mention'
our tourism economy) from the
ravages of climate change.
Today, we're shining the spot-
light on another face of climate
change Florida Crystals Corpo-
ration.
Florida Crystals is one of the
largest sugar companies in the
nation and manufacturer of the
world's first and only certified
carbonfree natural and organic
sugar products.
More than a decade ago, Flor-
ida Crystals built North America's
largest biomass power plant, lo-
cated in South Florida.
Today, the plant stands as one
of the most potent and important
symbols of energy independence
and greenhouse gas reduction in
Florida.
Florida Crystals uses bagasse,
sugar cane fiber, along with re-
cycled urban wood waste, as fuel
to power its operations.
The company's power plant
also has the capacity to generate
enough eco-friendly electricity to
meet the daily needs of nearly
60,000 homes.
Florida Crystals hopes to con-
tinue its growth in the renewable
energy field.
In collaboration with the Uni-
versity of Florida, Florida Crys-
tals will soon break ground on
the state's first cellulosic ethanol
plant.


The facility will produce up to
two million gallons of advanced
ethanol and is expected to be-
come a world-class cellulosic
ethanol research facility.
Florida Crystals will be able to
produce food products, electricity,
and ethanol from the same crop
- all while reducing global warm-
ing pollution and the amount of
waste sent to landfills.
As a leader in renewable en-
ergy production, Florida Crystals
recently joined our call on the
U.S. Congress to put a cap on
greenhouse gas emissions.
Why?
Because when Congress
caps global warming pollution,
companies that develop cleaner
power sources will have a market
to sell their innovations beyond
Florida's borders, and a leg up
in the massive global market for
low-carbon technologies.
"Cap and trade" is the leading
approach in Congress today for
greenhouse gas reduction.
Under "cap and trade" compa-
nies that reduce pollution below
the cap can sell their excess emis-
sions credits to others that have
failed to do so.


This approach will bring down
the cost of reducing pollution
across the board and thereby in-
crease the bottom line for com-
panies.
It also potentially means hun-
dreds of millions of dollars in new
revenue for Florida farmers and
foresters.
In fact, a University of Florida
study paid for by the Environmen-
tal Defense Fund recently found
that agriculture producers in Flor-
ida could earn $340 million a year
under a cap-and-trade system.
That's why it is imperative that
the next President works with the
Congress to approve a cap-and-
trade bill within the first 100 days
of the new administration.
It's a window of opportunity
for the incoming President to use
his goodwill and momentum to
enact a plan that will stimulate
the economy, reduce our oil de-
pendence, and finally deal with
climate change.
Others are sure to follow the
trail being blazed by Florida Crys-
tals south of Lake Okeechobee,
developing climate-friendly op-
erations and keeping Florida at
the forefront of reducing global

Child lead poisoning still a threat


By Brenda Barnes
Hendry County Dept. of Health
Lead poisoning is a serious
threat to a child's behavioral de-
velopment.
The effects of lead poisoning
can cause irreversible damage
and could be fatal.
Lead-based paints are the ma-
jor source of exposure. Houses
that were built before 1978 could
contain lead-based paints and
children could be exposed as the
paint starts to peel or when the
cracked paint creates dust par-


tidcles.
Other possible sources can
include imported toys, some pot-
tery, imported home remedies,
imported candy, make-up, jew-
elry, and mini-blinds.
Another source is "take-home
lead". This happens when lead-
dust is carried home on clothes
and shoes of people that have
hobbies or occupations that in-
volve lead.
A couple of hobbies that in-
volve lead are pottery and stained
glass creations. IWo common


work activities that can cause
"take home lead" exposure are
home renovations and home re-
pairs.
Children under the age of six,
especially toddlers are at risk for
lead exposure because of the fre-
quent hand-to-mouth contact.
Early identification and treat-
ment of lead poisoning reduces
the risk of permanent damage.
Lead poisoning is preventable.
The key to prevention is mak-
ing sure that your child does not
come into contact with lead.


If you suspect that your child
may have been exposed to lead,
ask your health care provider if
they offer blood-lead testing.
SOct. 19-25, is recognized as
Childhood Lead Poisoning Pre-
vention Week.
If you would like more infor-
mation regarding lead poisoning
prevention, please contact the
Hendry County Health Depart-
ment at 863-674-4041.


Workshop open for S.R. 29 roadwork


Public is encouraged to attend
and provide comments about
proposed road expansion
The Florida Department of
Transportation (FDOT) is holding
a public information workshop
regarding proposed widening of
State Road 29 from State Road 82
to County Road 80A on Tuesday,
Oct. 28, at the LaBelle Civic Cen-
ter.
The workshop will be held in
an open house format.
People may stop at the civic
center (behind City Hall at 481
West Hickpochee Avenue) any-
time from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to re-


view aerial maps and materials
and discuss the project one-on-
one with department staff.
FDOT encourages anyone in-
terested in the project residents,
commuters, business owners,
etc. to attend and offer com-
ments about proposed improve-
ments.
This workshop is part of a
Project Development and En-
vironment (PD &E) study that
evaluates engineering and envi-
ronmental considerations associ-
ated with widening the existing
two-lanes of State Road 29 in this
18-mile segment to four lanes.


During the study, public in-
volvement helps the department
determine a preferred concept for
roadway improvements.
This preferred roadway align-
ment will be presented at a for-
mal public hearing (tentatively
scheduled for spring 2009) near
the end of the study.
The PD &E study is a federally
required first step that produces
a conceptual design for road im-
provements.
It also identifies right-of-way
effects to business owners and
homeowners and preliminary
cost estimates for subsequent


phases of production.
At the end of the study, the
conceptual design is submitted to
the Federal Highway Administra-
tion for approval.
Future phases (preparation
of formal design plans, appraisal
and acquisition of needed right-
of-way, and construction) are not
presently funded in the depart-
ment's five year work program
for this segment of S.R. 29.


Bank helps. with mammography device


WEST PALM BEACH-Every
three minutes a woman in the
U.S. is diagnosed with breast can-
cer.
Advanced technologies to de-
tect the disease early are critical to
survival. As a long-time supporter
of breast cancer health and early
detection, National City Bank has
provided a $50,000 gift to support
the purchase of a digital mam-
mography machine for the new
$73 million regional hospital the
Health Care District of Palm Beach
County is currently constructing
in the Glades.
The donation was presented
to Glades Healthcare Foundation,
which is leading the fund raising
campaign for the new hospital.
The new facility will replace
Glades General Hospital, which
serves 40,000 residents in west-
ern Palm Beach County.
Digital mammography will
provide better detection and di-
agnostic capabilities and allow
physicians to generate images in
seconds.
The technology provides the
added benefit of magnifying, ma-
nipulating and sharing images
electronically not possible with
traditional film-based mammog-
raphy systems currently in use at
Glades General.
"National City's generous
gift will have a direct impact on
the health and well-being of our
patients by offering them more
comprehensive diagnoses, which
will ultimately save lives," said Dr.
Ron Wiewora, Glades General
Hospital interim chief executive
officer. Glades General Hospital
averages 265 positive breast can-
cer diagnoses per year in a com-
munity where more than one-
third of residents live below the
Federal Poverty Level.
"Our community relies on us
for care close to home," said Dr.
Wiewora.
"This gift will help us deliver
on our commitment to advance
healthcare in the Glades region."
National City is announcing
the gift in honor of October's Na-
tional Breast Cancer Awareness
Month.
"National City is committed
to and passionate about breast
cancer awareness, prevention
and support initiatives," said Jay
Shearouse, National City Bank
President of the Southeast Florida
Region.
"This opportunity is a direct
and meaningful way to help resi-
dents in the Glades better prevent
and detect breast cancer. We are

proud and honored to provide this
essential support to the Glades
Healthcare Foundation."
Glades Healthcare Foundation
is raising the remaining funds to
purchase the $350,000 machine.
Those interested in making a
donation toward the digital mam-
mography unit or the hospital
campaign can call 561-833-8999
or e-mail info@gladeshealthcare.

The campaign has reached 87
percent of its funding goal.

It's the 'dreaded'



Flu Season


Vaccinations critical
in dealing with the
season

That dreaded Flu season is al-
ready upon us!
Unfortunately, there are many
reasons people give for, not get-
ting their flu shot, including, "I
don't like needles; it's not effec-
tive; it has side effects; it causes
the flu, or I didn't think about it."
Each year approximately
36,000 people in the United States
die from Influenza and complica-
tions of the virus.
Don't let excuses prevent you
from getting your flu shot.
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter wants to help protect you,
your family, and your friends from
getting the flu.
The hospital is offering dis-
counted flu shots at its various
facilities.

Extension Service: How does your garden grow?


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture
Agent
Tangerine dieback
I have an early-bearing tan-
gerine hybrid about seven years
old. For the last two or three years
whole branches have died back,
with peeling bark and cankers.
I'm afraid I am losing the tree. Is
there anything I can do? Alan -
Branch dieback on citrus trees
is not uncommon when trees are
stressed by cycles of strong winds,
drought, and then flooding.
Excessive dieback can be an
indication of root damage from
stressful environments which of-
ten encourage insect or disease
problems.
Peeling bark and cankers can
be an indication of some citrus
diseases.
The term canker means dif-
ferent things to different people
- some "cankers" turn out to be
harmless lichens that just grow
on the bark of citrus trees.


I certainly hope it is not the
dreaded citrus canker, which
looks like raised brown spots
surrounded by a yellow halo.
Because Citrus Canker is so eas-
ily transmitted, we do NOT want
folks bringing in diseased citrus
branches.
A better approach is to get us
a clear picture showing us what
you see is going on.
Or, come by our office to look
at one of our University of Florida
picture guides to citrus pests and
problems.
Identification of symptoms is
the first step in solving branch.
dieback.
Be sure you are, providing ad-
equate citrus special fertilizers
to insure that a young tree is not
stressed by nutritional deficien-
cies.
Watering in times, of drought
will also help dooryard citrus
trees produce high quality fruit in
the Florida Yard.
Dead branches can be pruned
back into healthy green wood;
otherwise, pruning of citrus trees
is often not necessary.


Fallen Fruit
How much water do zucchi-
nis need? When is the best time
to start planting zucchinis from
seeds? My zucchini plants started
out beautiful, the fruit started,
then the leaves turned yellow
and all my plants died. The fruit
also turned yellow and never
matured. What did I do wrong?
- Denise
Zucchini and most other veg-
etable plants only need 1/2 inch of
water each week through most
of our gardening season (i.e. "the
winter").
With all of our recent rain, few
gardens have needed supplemen-
tal watering.
Zucchini and other "summer"
squash can be planted here from
September through October or
from January to March for a
spring crop.
It may be that your flowers
were not pollinated because not
enough bees were around or as
you suspect, they may fall off if
there was too much water.


Another possibility could be
blossom end rot a lack of solu-
ble calcium.
Unless there is proof of some
specific disease, the use of a fun-
gicide is not recommended.
Bring in a sample of your fall-
en fruit to help find out of any of
these conditions exist.
Field grass in my lawn
This isn't about a garden, but
grass, how does one get rid of
what I call field grass which I be-
lieve is a form of a weed, but also
looks like a form of grass. How
would you grow good grass, can
you plant it in spots and it will
spread? Is there a way without
moving out all of what's there
and putting down all new sod?
It's impossible for me to do fi-
nancially that way. I have three
acres I want to get the weeds out
and have new grass growing on.
Help! Miss K

The key to having a great look-
ing lawn is to follow three basic


rules for growing good grass:
Mow correctly (cut the lawn to a
4" tall height), fertilize correctly
(use a no-phosphorus, slow re-
lease granular fertilizer applied at
1# N/1000 square feet 2x year),
and water correctly (1/2 inch of
water per application; don't wa-
ter again till the grass starts to
wilt. Following these three rules
will prevent most weeds from
getting into your lawn.
If your lawn isn't healthy, make
sure that the grass gets 6+ hours
of sunlight, and be sure that your
pH isn't too high or low.
Violate these rules and you get
pests: insects, diseases and weeds
are all pests.
When you are not healthy,
take your medicine.
When your lawn is not healthy,
the medicines are called pesti-
cides.
To "prescribe" the right kind of
weed killer, I would need to know
the kind of grass you are growing,
(Bahiagrass and St. Augustine-
grass are the best ones for our


area) and the weed that is caus-
ing problems. Bring a sample of
the weed by our office or send us
a clear picture so it can be prop-
erly identified.
If less than half of the plants in
an area of your lawn are not the
kind of grass you want, it makes
sense to kill everything and start
over.
The area you are renovating
might be small or large, and can
be done in stages from small bite-
sized chunks to entire landscapes,
depending on how much money
you have to spend and how
quickly you want to see results.
Using a non-selective weed
killer with glyphosate (e.g. Round-
up) kills everything, waiting a few
weeks, then replant by sodding,
plugging, sprigging or seeding.
Some of this renovation could
be done now if you want to use
annual ryegrass for the winter,
but permanent lawn replanting
should wait until spring.

Tips for reducing the
risk for breast
cancer

By Brenda Barnes
Dept. of Health
There's lots of information to
tell women the importance of get-
ting a yearly mammogram after
the age of 40.
This is very important infor-
mation, but is there anything a
healthy woman can do to reduce
her odds of getting breast cancer?
October is Breast Cancer Aware-
ness Month so in honor of that
here are some tips that could help
reduce the risks of Breast Cancer:
Pay attention to your weight
- Research suggests that obesity
may increase the risk of breast
cancer in women after meno-


pause by increasing the levels of
estrogen in their bodies. Make
slow changes in your eating hab-
its. Each week make a healthy
goal for yourself. For instance, tell
yourself "This week, I will eat a
salad at least two times".
Exercise Most people say
there's never enough time to ex-
ercise. Get creative. If you love
to dance, turn up the music and
dance while you are cleaning
the house. (You might get a few
laughs from the family at first, but
the results will be worth it). Walk
in place while you're talking on
the phone. You'd be surprised at
the number of steps you can take
while talking with a friend. While
you watch TV, grab a can of veg-
etables and lift it up and down to
give your arms a workout or get
up and walk around during the
commercials.


Cut back on red meats Eat
only two servings of red meat
per week. One serving is around
three ounces, or the size of a deck
of cards. Get creative with chick-
en, turkey and fish. When you are
browsing the computer, instead
of reading the latest gossip about
a movie star or politician, find a
new recipe!
Drink limited amounts of
alcohol Research has suggest-
ed that drinking one glass of red
wine each day can be healthy, but
the glass they refer to is about 4
ounces, not 16!
Have children High pro-
duction of estrogen can cause an
increased risk of breast cancer but
pregnancy decreases exposure to
estrogen.


Get a "base-line" mammo-
gram Get your first mammo-
gram between the ages of 35 and
40 so doctors can compare it to
future tests.
Then get a mammogram each
year.
Testing has drastically im-
proved and now they can detect
tiny changes in breast tissue.
Even if you regularly go to a
doctor and have yearly mammo-
grams, the best defense is to prac-
tice self exams.
If you're not sure that you're
doing it correctly, do it anyway.
You'll get used to the way
things feel, and you'll be the first
one to recognize when something
doesn't feel quite right.
Take care of yourselves ladies!
You are worth the extra effort!
Be healthy and be happy!

Track plans memorial


for Kim Allen


On April 17, 2007, Hendry
County lost one of its favorite
sons when Kim Allen lost his val-
iant battle against colon cancer.
Kim was a wonderful father
of five, a good husband and ex-
cellent businessman, a friend for
many and most of all, a good
man.
Many will remember Kim as
Vice President/Branch Manager
of Clewiston National Bank from
1982-1993 and owner of Central
Mobile Homes in Clewiston from
1993 until his death.
He loved the outdoors, scuba,
camping, airboating and the Ever-
glades.
One Oct. 25, the New Hendry
County Speedway, located just
north of the intersection of Hwy
.80 and U.S. 27, will play host to
the United Dirt Late Model Chal-
lenge Series, which will hold the
first ever Kim Allen Memorial
Race.


This race will be to honor the
life of Kim Allen and to raise mon-
ey for the Hendry County ESE pro-
gram, where Kim Allen's widow,
Sandy, is currently employed.
Tickets for this event are cur-
rently being sold for $10 at Cen-
tral Mobile Homes in both LaBelle
and Clewiston.
Tickets will also be sold at the
gate, however, the price will be
$20 per person.
Donations for this great cause
are also being accepted and,
again, a portion of the ticket sales
will be donated to the Hendry
County ESE program.
To make a donation, please
contact Ken Kinney at 863-675-
8888 or 863-673-4325 for details.

Devon Land, Chief Deputy

October 9th, 2008
Steve Whidden
2100 Scott Road
LaBelle, Florida 33935


Dear Mr. Whidden,


In March of 2005, as a courtesy to you I wrote a letter for you that was to
be used by you in applying for a Law Enforcement Officer. It has come to
my attention that you are using such a letter as a part of your political adver-
tisements strongly to inferring Hendry County voters that I am "support-
ing", "endorsing", or "recommending" you for Sheriff of Hendry County.
The use of such a letter without my written consent, constitutes a violation
of Florida's election laws, specifically Section 106.143 (3), Florida Statutes.
I have previously advised you to discontinue the use of this letter.


Such a letter, published in such a manner as it infers that I am supporting
you for office, commits fraud upon the voters of Hendry County since I have
previously advised you that I feel that you are not qualified to be Sheriff of
Hendry County. After leaving your employment with the Sheriff's Office, I
learned that you had filed a false employment application with the Sheriff's
Office as you failed to reveal on your application that you received some 10
traffic citations and that two traffic bench warrants for your arrest and one
civil court contempt order had been entered against you according to the
official records of Collier County and your City of Clewiston employment
application.

I have also learned through a memorandum contained in your file at the City
of Clewiston that you were removed from the DEA Task Force for being inef-
fective and failing to produce cases. This memorandum to you was written
by the Clewiston, Florida Chief of Police.

I demand that you remove my letter from any and all political advertisement
used by you in your campaign.

October is National Breast Cancer Awareness Month


II





~l~i


It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.

When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen or felt. This is why, in.recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograrns for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.


For further information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 286
Patient must pay cash, check or charge at the time of mammogram.

the day of Sept. 27?
Rev. Gregory Williams: I
was very hurt, just' torn inside.
I couldn't understand how this
could happen.
On a night like that, the Paho-
kee Blue Devils are, celebrating
their homecoming victory and
their star defensive player is killed.
That's crazy, that's crazy, man. In
a situation like this, you're just at
a loss of words and you just can't
explain it. It's just crazy, man.
Crazy. (A few moments of silence
take place after the response)
Question: If there's anything
you could tell Carl right now,
what would it be?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
Times of failure not only reveal a
person's true character, but also
present opportunities for change.
Question: The current situ-
ation in the Glades can be de-
scribed as seemingly bleak, with
curfews planned for all of the
area's youth.
What is your stance on that is-
sue?
+-- Rev. Gregory Williams: I,
believe that curfews are good
in its place. If administered by
the municipalities and enforced
through a collaborative effort be-
tween the churches, the sheriff's
department and the parents, then
we could successfully curb the
late-night teen violence and gang
activities.
Question: How long do you
think it will take for the communi-
ties of Belle Glade, Pahokee and
South Bay to embrace that con-
cept?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
That's a tough one right there.
We're living in desperate times
and there's a saying that desper-
ate people do desperate things.
I believe the people in the
Glades communities have real-
ized that there needs to be a
change.
They'll be willing to embrace
this change if it will bring good re-
sults. Six months is what's stick-
ing to me right now. Doing the
same thing only brings the same
results. It's only when we are
willing t o something different,
we'll get different results.
Question: Where do you see
the Glades area headed in the
next year?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
There's only two things that can
happen. We could either get bet-
ter or worse, bottom line.



i Red&


All of us adults, leaders and
organizations in the communi-
ties need to hold our children ac-
countable for their actions.
If not embraced, then we con-
tinue this downward spiral, with
senseless murders and crimes in
our communities.
Question: There were situa-
tions in the past that you were not
proud of.
Could you delve into the pro-
cess you had to go through to be
the person you are right now?
Rev. Gregory Williams: As
a teenager, I committed crimes
when I was engaged in gangs and
drugs.
I developed a street mental-
ity as a.result of me engaging in
those activities. It led to increas-
ingly violent behaviors.
That lifestyle brought some
bad experiences. For example,
I witnessed some of my friends
being murdered on the streets.
I know of several of my friends
who are incarcerated for the rest
of their lives.
I knew one day I would be one
of those statistics. So change was
a necessity for me.
Question: When did the
change of lifestyle occur? What
events happened on that day?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
It was on a Sunday in October.
1994.
I remember vividly that day .
when I was hanging out on the
corner with some friends.
There was a group of people,
led by Mr. Kenneth Jackson, who
came out and rendered a church

service there on the premises
here in South Bay.
Out of respect, we sat and
listened to the message that was
preached and for the first time in
my life, I saw a way out of the life
that I was living.
The Word of God challenged
and changed the street mentality
I had developed as a result of me
living that type of life.
The Word of God says in He-
brews 4:12, 'For the Word of
God is quick and powerful, and
sharper than any two-edged
sword, piercing even to the divid-
ing asunder of soul and spirit and
of the joints and marrow, is a dis-
cerner of the thoughts and intents
of the heart.'
Question: Kenneth Jackson,
who you consider as one who
was instrumental in your life-
changing experience, hired you
as Street Beat's youth services co-
ordinator.
Could you talk about, in detail,
how Mr. Jackson has changed
your life and what your position
means to you?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
One of the critical mistakes that
our communities have done is
not to go after those that are in
the gangs and on the streets.
Mr. Jackson targeted the streets
and gang members and as a re-
sult of that, I was saved.
He helped me make the transi-
tion from the street life to just a
law-abiding citizen.
Mr. Jackson helped me emo-
tionally, educationally and men-
'tally providing resources that

would prepare, equip and devel-
op me as a person.
The position that Mr. Jackson
gave me provides the opportunity
for me to use my experiences to
help others that are going down
that path.
I believe I was called out for
this generation as a symbol of
hope.
If I was able to make it out of
the streets, you can do it also.
Question: Considering the
fact that the youth are in dire need
of positive male role models, what
advice do you have for them?
Rev. Gregory Williams:
First, find someone that's God-
fearing, who loves the Lord and
who's steps are ordered by Him.
Follow that person as he or
she follows Christ.
What's most important is my
motto for life: Dare to be differ-
ent.
Question: Do you have a
quote that inspires you in any
way?
Rev. Gregory Williams: Yes,
a quote by John Maxwell which
goes by this: 'Natural leaders of-
ten need to be broken. Consider
your natural ability to lead a gift
from God, but your character a
gift to present back to God.'

in response to a letter from Devon
Land, Chief Deputy of Ronnie Lee, I
who wrote in part: .
I' have also learned through a
memorandum contained in your file
at the City of Clewiston that you were
removed from the DEA Task Force -.WeWatWhidde-.m
for being ineffective and failing to produce cases." *

Earlier Steve Whidden responded by stating:
" [requested that I be removed from the Taskforce due to the fact that
there were literally no drug activity on the street and could not justify my
resources being assigned to the them any longer. I requested that
the DEA transfer me back to active duties in the City, as this was a
waste of resources at that time. .

Quoting the minutes from' the official transcript as written in the notes
in the Regular Commission Meeting on August 15th, 2005 by the City
Clerk:

"PRESENTATION Police Department"
"Mayor Chamness read a letter written by Police Chief Don Gutshall to
the Clewiston Police Departments Narcotics Enforcement Unit, that
said in part, "I have served more than 15 years at a.command level and
more than 23 years total in law enforcement..........I have never seen
or been associated with a group of people so dedicated to the com-
munity they serve.. .the Narcotics Enforcement Unit has managed to
virtually shut down and seal off the operations of local illegal drug oper-
ations in a span of eight months.. "

The Commission commended the police officers, which included Matt
Duncan, Chad Pelham, Kelly Taylor, Max Van D'Huynslager, Don
Weathers, Steve Whidden, and Assistant Chief Kristine Peterson. The
audience joined the commission in applauding their outstanding
efforts."

I sincerely hope that this now sets the record straight, As many citi-
zens have already contacted me and expressed their support, I would
appreciate your vote as your next Sheriff of Hendry Countyl

Listen to online radio broadcasts


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida

Internet-based radio
services let you stream
music-that is, they
serve up songs for
you without actually
loading files onto your
computer. All of the
popular music players
offer streams by music
genre-classical, jazz,
and country are just
three examples. You
also can listen to radio
stations from around
the world.
Qt_*uuP AAPpnr

Last week we discussed mu-
sic you can download from the
Internet. This week we're tak-
ing a look at Internet radio. We
all have them and radios 'have
played a significant role in our
lives. As a kid I listened to CKLW
radio out of Windsor, Ont. My'
dad always'listened to WJR-AM
out of Detroit. I can remember
him listening to the farm report.
There was a time when buying a


car without a radio was a distinct
possibility. Radio was an option.
We are land-bound when we lis-
ten to broadcast radio. That is we
can only listen to the stations that
broadcast in our part of the coun-
try. Satellite radio changed that to
a degree, but you pay for it.
Today, radio broadcasts from
all over the country are available
on the Internet. Internet stream-
ing radio is usually free on the sta-
tion's web site. How to get start-
ed? One way is to open up your
favorite search engine and type in
"radio streaming broadcasts." You
will be amazed at what comes
up. I also have several web site
addresses below, with the steps
that will launch you into listening
to radio on your computer.
Make sure you have your
speakers plugged in and turned
on. Some speakers are battery
powered, some plug into the wall.
But, they all plug into the comput-
er in the back. You can also listen
through headphones if speakers
will disturb your household. If the
stations take a minute to load it's
because it needs to buffer some
of the program. That is some of
the song is stored in your com-
puter's memory so you can listen
to a steady stream without jerks
or skips.
Each of the web site addresses
below introduce you to a style of
Internet radio. Try these and then
have a great time finding them on
your own.


httpl/ZnetscapeI.aol.coL!gn
To the right on the screen,
click AOL Radio. Look to the left
and click "Launch the new AOL
Radio." with The screen that pops
up looks a lot like a control panel,
which it is. A list of music genres
is on the left. Music is going to
start playing automatically, but
you are going to want to make
your own choice. For the full list,
scroll all the way down the mu-
sic choices because radio stations
from 29 major cities each offer a
half-dozen choices. Click and en-
joy. You may adjust the volume
with the Volume icon in the lower
right corner of your screen. The
icon looks like a speaker and the
word "volume" pops up as you
scroll over it.

Here is another kind of mu-
sic streaming broadcast. On the
opening screen type in your favor-
ite genre or artist and it will play a
string of songs similar to that art-
ist. This is a music genome proj-
ect web site. That means they are
studying all kinds of music and
your response to certain songs.

listening to. There is no risk to

Those genes of yours need a bath!


Lifestyle choices may
override genetics in some
cases

If your parents or grandparents
had heart disease, you may be-
lieve your fate is sealed because
of your genes,
That may not be so.
Lifestyle choices may actu-
ally reduce the chance of repeat-
ing your family's history of poor
health, according to a concept
that is picking up steam in the
medical community.
According to Dr. David Rakel,
director of integrative medicine
at the University of Wisconsin
School of Medicine and Pub-
lic Health, a concept known as
"epigenetics" empowers people
to take control of their health by
-making choices that may override
their genetic code.
Rakel says behavior and en-
vironment can affect how those
genes are "expressed," that is,
how the information in a gene
gets translated into proteins.
"Epigenetics means 'around
the gene' or if you will, the soup
in which we bathe our genes that
is determined by human choice,"
he explains.
"We are the cooks of our s6up
that influences if our genes are
healthy or diseased."
"For example, if your brother
or your dad had prostate cancer,
there's probably an area in your
genetic code that puts you at
high risk for prostate cancer," he
added.
"Research is telling us even if

your family has a history of can-
cer, there are things you can do to
bathe that gene in a way to keep
it from expressing itself.
"This means your genes may
produce healthy prostate tissue
instead of tissue that is diseased
or cancerous."
So what can people do to min-
imize their risk of cancer, high
blood pressure, heart disease,
diabetes or other illnesses that
may be part of their genetic pre-
disposition?
Rakel says changes in diet,
exercise, and personal attitude
could actually influence the ge-
netic code and reduce the chanc-
es for declining health.
While this advice may not
seem different from what your
doctor says during a routine
checkup, Rakel says the concept
of epigenetics espouses that life-
style choices can influence genet-
ic expression,
"We have a choice to bathe
our genes with joy, happiness, ex-
ercise, and nutritious foods, or we
can. bathe them with anger, lack
,of hope, junk food and sedentary
lifestyle," he says.
"This area of research holds so
much potential and gives us the
hope to say 'Even if my genes in-
dicate a history of family illness, I
can make positive lifestyle choices
that can keep a gene from being
expressed as a disease.'"'
Rakel cites a 2007 review by Dr.
Steven Schroeder of the University
of California-San Francisco.
Schroeder's study concluded
that the largest influence on the
risk of death in America is attrib-
uted to personal behavior, such


as smoking, obesity, and stress.
The paper adds that, even if
top-notch health care were avail-
able to everyone, only a small
fraction of lives (10 percent) can
be saved with these high-tech in-
terventions.
The largest reduction in death
- 40%-- will result from the adop-
tion of healthier habits.
"Human attitude has a tre-
mendous influence on health,"
says Rakel.
"If you are happy, you are
more likely to go out jogging or
adopt positive lifestyle behaviors
because you have hope. You see
what's good in the world instead
of what's bad.
"If I'm seeing what's bad in
the world, I won't have the hope
that encourages positive lifestyle
choices."
Studies of laboratory rats with
a gene that increases the risk of
diabetes further build the case for
epigenetics.
When the pregnant mothers
of genetically identical rats who
had this gene ate foods that in-
fluence gene expression (garlic,
beets, onions), their offspring did
not develop diabetes.
But when mothers were fed
a diet that did not include these
foods, the offspring became
obese and developed diabetes.
What the mothers ate influ-
enced the expression of genes in
their offspring.
This and evolving research are
teaching us that epigenetic influ-
ences leave an imprint on our ge-
netic code that is passed down to
future generations.

INFORMATION FOR CLEWISTON VOTERS

On November 4, 2008, the City of Clewiston will present a referendum on the
Hendry County General Election Ballot to adopt a new City Charter. The current
charter is outdated and/or superseded by Florida law. A citizen "Charter Review
Committee" reviewed the proposed new charter during a series of public meet-
ings and gave unanimous support for its approval by. the Clewiston City
Commission. The City Commission adopted Ordinance 2008-04 on August 21,
2008. The referendum will appear on the November Election Ballot in the fol-
lowing format:

Clewiston City Charter Referendum

The Clewiston City Charter was enacted by Special Laws of Florida in 1925 and
was last amended in 1947. The Charter is outdated and/or superseded by the
General Laws of Florida. The Conmmnission has concluded that the adoption of a
new Charter is in the best interest of the citizens ofClewiston.


Shall the City Conummission repeal the existing Charter amended in 1947 aind
enact a new City Charter for the City of Clewiston? Yes ___ No

In approving Ordinance 2008-04, the City Commission committed their support
that enactment of a new charter will serve the public interest as beneficial to "good
governance" for the City of Clewiston far into the future. VOTER SUPPORT
FOR THE NEW CHARTER IS ENCOURAGED AND APPRECIATED.
For questions regarding the charter, please call (863) 983-1484. A copy of the pro-
posed Charter is available for inspection at Clewiston City Hall, 115 W Ventura
Avenue, Clewiston, FL.


vegetables versus high-fat foods,
if I choose to fill my heart with
compassion versus hate and hos-
tility, this can leave a mark in my
code that can be passed on," says
Rakel.
"The question is not who you
are now, but who do you want to
become?
"And who do you want your
kids and your kid's kids to be-
come? Choices now may influ-
ence future generations."
Rakel says epigenetics also
advocates less dependence on
drugs and greater reliance on re-
cruiting self-healing mechanisms.

"'If I encourage them to ex
ercise and eat better, I'm doing
much more than lowering their
cholesterol. I'm reducing their risk
of cancer, Alzheimer's disease,
diabetes... the list goes on. Epi-
genetics impacts the whole body,
but drugs are geared toward one
specific disease."

"It could be a matter of forgiv-
ing that person who has made
you angry for 30 years," he says.
"If you can do that, maybe your
shoulders feel lighter or that ache
in your gut doesn't feel as bad.
"Maybe you stop getting head-
aches or neck pain. That's an

choice, forgiveness, results in tre-
mendous change in your overall

Credit Unions play positive role in economy


INI Florida Credit unions,
not-for-profit financial institutions
owned by their members, may be
among the safest financial institu-
tions in the nation, despite our na-
tion's current economic struggles.
And as a result, they are gaining
recognition among consumers as
well as on Capitol Hill for not only
having avoided the problems that
created today's financial mess,
but for being a huge part of the
solution.
"In the wake of the Lehmann
Bros. and Merrill Lynch debacles,
many consumers are becom-
ing more and more concerned
about the financial soundness of
their financial institutions," said
Guy M. Hood, President/CEO of
the Florida Credit Union League
(FCUL). "Where some financial
institutions are reeling from the
economy, credit unions are not.


There has also been some hype
about money in credit unions
being unsafe, when, in fact, it is
just as safe being insured with the
National Credit Union Association
(NCUA) as money with FDIC."
Credit union deposits, called
shares, are insured by the Nation-
al Credit Union Administration
(NCUA), a federal agency offer-
ing deposit account coverage just
like the FDIC, to at least $100,000
per insured account. Although
there have been many news
that have focused exclusively on
FDIC insurance at banks the fed-
eral insurance provided by NCUA
for credit unions has often been
overlooked.
Recent segments on CNN and
other news shows as well as an
article in Politico magazine on
Capitol Hill recognized credit
unions as strong and secure insti--


tutions that avoided the bad lend-
ing practices that caused today's
financial crisis.
According to the Credit Union
National Association's (CUNA)
Senior Vice President Research
Chief Economist, Bill Hampel:
Credit unions are in very
good shape although it's not
pleasant with low earnings.
This year is the lowest earn-
ings seen in the history of credit
unions due to rising loan losses
but credit unions are still very
well capitalized.
With the weakening econo-
my, consumers are spending less
but saving more, therefore loans
have slowed down but saving
deposits have increased at credit
unions.
First mortgage loan charge-
off rates are up but low in com-
parison to other financial institu-


tions. Last year the rate was at .02
percent, this year, .06 percent.
Credit unions are still lending
while others are not however, as
always, they are prudent lenders.
"When it comes to personal
finances, credit unions are here
to serve, to counsel, and to pro-
tect their membership compas-
sionately," said Hood. "Florida's
4.5 million credit union members
need to know that as long as their
individual accounts remain with-
in coverage limits, their funds are
safe."
The NCUA website, at www.
ncua.gov, has additional tools to
help consumers determine the
coverage on their accounts as
well as brochures and bulletins
that detail coverage for regular
savings and retirement accounts
and more.

Differing views on definition of marriage


The recent articles in the
Democrat by Pastor Brian Ham-
rick reflect his views on a variety
of sensitive topics and no one
should question his right to the
free expression of how he sees
these topics. However, in his
most recent article appearing in
the Sept. 25, Democrat, Pastor
Hamrick cited an eminent British
anthropologist and an eminent
Russian-American sociologist to
bolster his argument in support
of a proposed Florida Constitu-


tional Amendment defining the
meaning of marriage, drawing
the conclusion that opposing
this amendment is a "recipe for
disaster" based on science as
well as his interpretation of theol-
ogy. However, as someone with a
master's degree in sociology and
anthropology (as well as a doc-
torate in psychology), I feel obli-
gated to mention the conclusions
of the sociologist and anthropolo-
gist cited by Pastor Hamrick are
nearly a century old and do not


reflect current thinking in these
fields, where research has pro-
gressed remarkably over these
many years.
The American Anthropologi-
cal Association's website states
the following: "The results of
more than a century of anthropo-
logical research on households,
kinship relationships, and fami-
lies, across cultures and through
time, provide no support what-
soever for the view that either
civilization or viable social orders


depend upon marriage as an ex-
clusively heterosexual institution.
Rather, anthropological research
supports the conclusion that a
vast array of family types, includ-
ing families built upon same-sex
partnerships, can contribute to
stable and humane societies." In
2004, this organization resolved
to strongly oppose any constitu-
tional amendment limiting mar-
riage to heterosexual couples.
Likewise, the American Sociologi-
cal Association's website features


a similar resolution made by that
organization in 2004 that opposes
defining marriage in any narrow-
ly proscribed way, stating such a
definition would be "based on
prejudice rather than empirical
research." Last, the American Psy-
chological Association (of which I
am a member) has a similar 2004
resolution on its website, stating
"psychological research on rela-
tionships and couples provides
no evidence to justify discrimina-
tion against same-sex couples."


Although religious interpretations
may vary considerably, to imply
that scientific data, such as from
the fields of sociology and anthro-
pology, would support approval
of this amendment is simply un-
true.

search Professor of Psychol-

McCollum warns Floridians about mortgage fraud


Tips to avoid mortgage fraud-
related identity theft and fraud
from the U.S. Department of
Housing and Urban Development'
include:
*Be wary of any attempt to
persuade you to make a false
statement on your loan applica-
tion, such as overstating your in-
come or the source of your down
payment, and failing to disclose
the nature and amount of your
debts or how long you have been
employed. Lying on a mortgage


INI Florida In recognition
of National Protect Your Identity
Week, October 19-25, Attorney
General Bill McCollum today is-
sued a consumer advisory warn-
ing Floridians about mortgage
fraud-related identity theft.
The crime can occur when
"straw borrowers" are recruited
to perpetuate a mortgage scam
on a lending institution. The per-
son who allows their good credit
to be used as a straw borrower
typically ends up with ruined
credit, significant debt and poten-
tial criminal charges. The crime
can also be perpetuated through
criminal identity theft, which oc-
curs when thieves steal a person's
identity or personal information,
unbeknownst to the victim, and
use- that information to secure
mortgages or other home loans.
"Identity theft can be one of
the more personally damaging
results of mortgage fraud," said
Attorney General McCollum.
"This financial destruction can
ruin a person's name, credit, and
other personal financial aspects,
and may even result in litigation
against a straw buyer engaged in
a mortgage fraud scheme."
Just last month, Attorney Gen-
eral McCollum sued 10 compa-
nies and 15 individuals for a mas-
+ sive $37 million mortgage fraud
scheme utilizing straw borrowers
in Central Florida. In that case, the
ringleaders allegedly defrauded
banks by recruiting straw buyers
with good credit to create false
mortgage loan applications. The
scammers also allegedly created
fraudulent supporting documen-
tation for the applications includ-
ing bogus employment informa-
tion for the straw buyers. In many
cases, the defendants failed to
make the required mortgage pay-
ments on behalf of straw buyers
and allowed at least 50 properties
to fall into foreclosure.
Six alleged straw borrowers
are named as defendants in the
Attorney General's lawsuit.

application is fraud and may re-

*Be wary of any attempt to
persuade you to borrow more
money than you know you can
afford to repay.
*Never sign a blank docu-
ment or a document containing
blanks. If information is inserted
by someone else after you have
signed, you may still be bound to
the terms of the contract.

INDEPENDENT

A UNIQUE COMMUNITY SERVICE NEWSPAPER


OUR GOAL


SOur mission is
to bring good
journalism to
the communities
S, INI we serve. We
try to provide
citizens with the
knowledge they need to participate
fully in the community. This includes
covering meaningful issues and
trends, publicizing community
activities and showing people how
they can get involved.


OUR STANDARDS

j As a community
institution, we strive
I to use good
journalism to bring
out the best in the
community and its
people. As a
business, we are
committed to
achieving success on the high road,
maintaining high ethical standards
and seeking win-win relationships.
As an employer, we encourage our
people to develop their full potential
and become all they can be.


", ... W e want to '
id\\ "'""'n ir ~provide each.
S i ^ of our
S communities
with the best
newspaper the market
can support. Each newspaper
strives to be among the best of its
size and type in the nation.


OPEN DOOR POLICY

With many "
newspapers,
it's hard to
get
something
published in the : -
paper. We essentially follow a policy
of "if you get it to us and it's
legitimate community news, we'll get
it in". In fact, involving the community
in routine news-gathering allows our
editors to spend more time covering
critical local issues and facilitating
the community's discussion of those
issues.


OPINIONS PAGE

Our opinion pages belong to the '
community. Everybody's views are '
welcomed. The editors do not push
their own views on the community;
Instead they encourage the
community's discussion of issues and.
seek out a broad range of opinions. To
return to the values of the American Revolution,
the newspapers offer a call-in column in which
citizens can express their opinions anonymously
(edited to keep the discussions as open as
possible, within the bounds of fair play). There
are also letters to the editor and guest
commentaries from experts on various topics.

Castaways on the wild shores of Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
A blaze of fiery red fingers
probed the evening sky, until the
passage of night slowly descend-
ed and vanquished the sun's last
appendages of light.
Now only the glowing lanterns
shielded the Spanish galleon from
the darkness, as the sea's tempest
strengthened, threatening the
ships voyage through the dreaded
Florida Straits.
The navigator and two sailors
clung fearfully to the massive til-
ler as huge, grey bearded waves
hissed and rolled upon the lum-
bering ship, sending, tons of
green, white, frothy water stream-
ing across the ship's deck.
Deck hatches securely bat-
tened down, resisted the raging
tropical storm's deluge of water,
but failed to stop the foreboding
storm that intensified within the
ship's hull.
The ship's interior was gripped
in the pervasive smell of fear that
swept over the men, women and
children in cold waves of pungent
perspiration as they huddled like
lost souls in the darkness.
Suddenly a plunge of the gal-
leon into a wave sent a shutter


through the ship.
A loud moan erupted from the
outer hull as the ship's timbers
cracked and splintered on the hid-
den reef that held the rigid ship in
its jagged jaws.
Cold, merciless, waves struck
and battered the impaled ship,
until it tore apart amidst the wails
and shrieks of the living and dying
that were swept into the pitiless
sea.
It was morning and those who
had survived the horrible night
now looked up stupefied, as tall,
brown Calusa warriors, armed
with clubs, walked menacingly
toward them along the storm lit-
tered beach.
This story is fiction but reflects
the hardships and dangers that
the early sailors and passengers
endured along the coast of Flor-
ida.
The perils of the voyage were
heightened because there was no
refuge for the castaways. In the
early 1500s, death or a life of en-
slavement was the norm for cast-
aways.
It is time .to take "A Walk in
The Past" and listen to the tall
tales of Fontanado and other
shipwrecked castaways, who en-
countered the Calusa on the wild


shores of Florida.
Escalante Fontaneda was 13
years old when taken captive by
the Calusa.
He was a slave among the
Calusa for 17 years until rescued
in 1566, by a Spanish expedition
sent by Don Pedro Menendez in
search of his lost son and a water
route across south Florida.
Fontaneda returned to Spain
after his rescue and later wrote
his memoirs in 1575.
In his memoirs, Escalante Fon-
taneda describes the beginning of
his voyage: "On board this ship
were the two sons of Alonso De
Mesa and their uncle.
'!They were all rich, and I the
poorest among them, yet I had
twenty-five pesos of fine gold. My
father (who was a commander)
and my mother had both served
his Majesty in Peru, and subse-
quently in Carthagena, where
they established a colony.
"I, as well as one of my broth-
ers, was born there. They were
sending us to Spain to be educat-
ed, when we were shipwrecked
on the Florida coast; as well as
the fleet from New Spain, com-
manded by the son of Don Pedro
Menendez (Adelantado of Flori-
da)."


He and others, including his
brother, survived the shipwreck,
but were taken captive by the
Calusa Indians.
His older brother and the other
survivors of that fateful night nev-
er returned to Spain.
Their bones and the bones of
many other shipwreck survivors
are scattered across Florida, but
remain to this day silent witness-
es to the brutality they received at
the hands of the Calusa and other
Indian nations in South Florida.
The brutality and executions
that European castaways received
at the hands of some Indian na-
tions is likened to a two-edge
sword.
Florida Indian. nations were
subjected to cruelty by the roving
Spanish expeditions that passed
through their territories in search
of Gold.
Spanish journals record in-
stances where trained attack dogs
were used to kill Indian captives,
simply because they failed to pro-
vide information.
Spanish slave ships plied the
Florida coast capturing Indians
and separating families forever.
The seeds of hatred and bit-
terness were planted deep, in the
hearts of wronged Indian nations


that later bore fruit, when ship-
wrecked men, women and chil-
dren were cast on their shores.
Many of the shipwreck survi-
vors were killed immediately by
the Indians, when discovered on
the beaches.
Others became slaves, endur-
ing the harsh physical hardships,
knowing their only hope was res-
cue.
This desperate hope was re-
corded on a clam shell found in
Glades County by an archeologist
in the early 1900s. A rough map
is inscribed on the shell indicating
where the Spanish captive was
living.
The Indians used shells as
trade items, and no doubt the
captive was hoping the shell map
would one day bring Spanish res-
cuers.
Enslavement was an ironic
twist of fate for wealthy passen-
gers, who weeks before had lived
the lives of gentlemen and noble
ladies with Indian slaves to do
their every biding.
Now they were most miser-
able and probably longed for just
the simple comforts that they had
provided to their slaves.
Even more ironic was the fate
awaiting black runaways, flee-


ing slavery in Cuba or the black
slaves that were journeying with
their owners, only to find that'
they must succumb to slavery
again on the shores of Florida.
The year 1492 was the begin-
ning of "Life and Death" struggles
between multiple cultures that
clashed and fought until the 18th
century in the Americas.
It is sad but true that history
repeats itself and that we fail to
learn from the past.
The "Life and Times" of the
Calusa will continue in Tall Tales
of Fontaneda's memoirs in the
next edition of "A Walk in The
Past."
I hope you enjoyed this story.

seum if you have questions, arti-

Tale" that you would like to share.

Smoke stinks in a slow real estate market


76% of Potential
Home Buyers Say
Cigarette Smoke
Odor Would Be a
Deal Breaker

Tallahassee, FL As "For Sale"
signs dot yards throughout Flori-
da, plummeting sales and home
prices and soaring foreclosures
signal that the housing crisis con-
tinues to deepen.
When the real estate market is
competitive, a home with a pun-
gent odor such as cigarettes can
make or break the deal.
According to a 2008 Home Fea-


tures Survey done by Zip Realty,
76% of respondents say that bad
odor, such as cigarette smoke,
would sway their decision against
purchasing a home.
Tobacco Free Florida wants
to help Floridians maintain their
edge in a competitive market and
live healthier lives.
The stale, lingering odor of
cigarette smoke seeps into and
sticks on furniture, carpets, walls,
curtains and just about every sur-
face it comes in contact with.
Household cleaners alone
won't get the job done, therefore
professionals need to be hired to
deep clean the stubborn odors
and remove stains. Smokers incur
extra costs when selling a house


that non-smokers do not.
Homes may require new paint
and professional carpet and drap-
ery cleaning.
For an average sized home
this could run a homeowner ap-
proximately $3,000 in additional
expenses.
Think smoking outside is the
answer?
"It is not," says Kim Berfield,
Deputy Secretary of the Florida
Department of Health.
"Smoking outside helps re-
duce tobacco odor, but does not
eliminate it.
"Clothes absorb the smell,
dragging it back into the home
and undoubtedly finding its way
to closets and drawers. Quitting


smoking is the only way to com-
pletely rid a home of the smell."
In addition to the effect that
cigarette smoke can have to a
home's interior, smoking inside
puts others at risk of the dangers
of second-hand smoke.
There is no safe level of expo-
sure to secondhand smoke and
there is no ventilation (i.e., an
open window) that can eliminate
the exposure.
"Secondhand smoke is a sig-
nificant health issue for Florid-
ians," says Berfield.
"Approximately 11 million
youth age 12-18 live in a house-
hold with at least one smoker,
and over 6 million are exposed to
second hand smoke daily.


"Smoking inside the home
puts others at an increased risk
for respiratory illness, lung can-
cer, and cardiovascular disease."
Tobacco Free Florida is stress-
ing to Floridians that the decision
to quit smoking is the only way to
ensure a home will not be over-
looked due to an odor and will
play a major part in turning "For
Sale" signs on front lawns into
"Sold" signs.
Free cessation assistance is
provided by calling the Quitline

specially trained to help tobacco
users quit are available twenty-

Autumn Apples: The Very Last Fruits of the Season


By Carrie Madren
Polishing a Pink Lady on my
sleeve, I take a bite into my first
fresh-picked apple of autumn.
The crisp crunch echoes
sounds of raspy, fallen leaves
underfoot. Fall is apple-picking
time.
It's a tradition I've adopted for
the past handful of years, harvest-
ing my own apples by the bagful
at a local apple orchard.
I delight in twisting, firm fruits
off woody stems, taking my time
as I search for the best fruits,
My autumn apple pilgrimage
marks a milestone each year, like
the first glimpse of green leaves in
spring, or catching the first firefly
of summer,
In harvesting these last fruits of


the season -- Fuji, Granny Smith,
Rome Beauty or Braeburn -- we
can savor both the sweet and the
tart of the year's harvest as we be-
gin to reflect back on the year.
All summer I had delighted in
plucking blueberries, snapping
off snow peas and picking sun-
warmed tomatoes.
My. first green pepper of the
year tempted a chipmunk to nib-
ble it to pieces.
My once-lush dill dried to a
crisp during an August dry spell.'
A yellow cherry tomato plant
surprised me in my flower bed,
yielding sunburst-colored spheres
of juicy fruit to pick as I arrived
home.
,Now, out in the orchard, I
wander through summer's boun-
ty one last time for the year.


Apples mottled in reds, yel-
lows and greens weigh down
boughs of orchard trees, ripe and
ready for harvest.
Make the most of autumn's
golden afternoon sun and crisp
air full of cricket symphonies;
frosty mornings will soon have us
reaching for warmer jackets.
Choose a day that you can lin-
ger among rows of trees, breathe
fresh air deeply, smell the autumn
foliage and sample one of your
selections.
As you snack, adopt summer's
slower pace one last time.
Notice the birds skittering
through the orchard trees, and fly-
ing south. Stop and turn skyward
if a V of geese crosses overhead.
In this last foray out into farm
and field -- not unlike the lazy


hikes and humid hunts for berries
that made up summer days -- take
a mental picture to hold onto as
cooler air settles across the East
Coast.
Such traditions help us keep
track of a year's time, a comfort-
able annual routine that lets us
know where and when we are.
It's at about this time, too,
that the farmers' markets and the
roadside stands of summer wind
down for the year. Pick your own
apples '- or discover a late-season
roadside stand -- and you'll sup-
port local growers, extending
your 'Buy Local' momentum far-
ther into cooler weather.
At some orchards, you can
pick up mums, maize, gourds
and pumpkins with your apples.
Pluck your own apples from


local orchards, and' you'll keep.
growers in business.
With development and sprawl
hungering to claim more fields
and forests, farms need our help
to stay growing year after year.
Mega-grocery stores beckon
us with a dream-world of pro-
duce, including apples trucked in"
from Washington and elsewhere
beyond the Mid-Atlantic.
Our local farms need our sup-
port.
Plus, there's virtue in baking
pies, drizzling caramel over fresh-
cut wedges or stewing home-
made applesauce -- with apples
nurtured at a local orchard.
Visit different orchards from
year to year, visiting at various
times during the fall..
Sample new varieties and find


your favorites.
The more tart, the better for
baking. The sweeter, the better
for munching.
Pick a variety of apples to keep
heaped in a bowl at home, too.
It's the apple -- the most humble
of fruits that suggests home-
coming, simpler times.
Bringing this last harvest of the
year indoors will help set the stage
for upcoming family gatherings.
Cozy into a mug of warm ci-
der, or pack an apple on a journey
away from home.
Revel in the apples of autumn
and you'll weave summer's last
fruit into the fabric of fall.

final .insurance settlement and
still has unmet needs, they must
appeal FEMAs initial decision by
providing insurance documenta-
tion.

ance settlement letter, it can then

cant's unmet needs and complete
an appeal-review and determine
if there is eligibility for assistance.

tance with FEMA and who have
settled with their insurance com-
panies have 60 days from the date
of their original correspondence
(from FEMA) to submit an ap-
peal.

is under-insured, disaster assis-
tance may be granted and used

Michelle Obama Meets with Military Community in Pensacola


Mrs. Obama
introduced by Wendy
Bennett whose
husband served in
Gulf War and Iraq

PENSACOLA Michelle
Obama, wife of Democratic Presi-
dential nominee, Senator larack
Obama, met with 14 members of
the military community in Pensa-
cola today before taking the stage
for an 'Early Vote for Change'
*rally.
Among those who met with
Mrs. Obama were Wendy Ben-
nett, a military wife and mother


whose husband is serving in Iraq,
and Amanda Allen,v a junior at-
tending the University of West
Florida, whose husband currently
serves in the Navy. "
Also in attendance were mili-
tary community members who
volunteer for the Obama-Biden
campaign and serve as Team Pen-
sacola members and have been
heavily involved in the campaign's
grassroots voter registration and
early vote for change efforts.
At Tuesday's meeting, Mrs.
Obama thanked them for their
service to the country, and shared
her perspective on the opportu-
nity that military families have in
this year's election to cast their
ballot for the only candidate who


shares their vision of a military
system that does more to support
its troops and their families.
"If there's one thing I've
learned from these roundtables,
it's that when our military goes to
war, their families go with. them,"
said Mrs. Obama.
"Barack is the only candidate
in this race who wants to create a
21st century VA that offers world-
class care and rejects the idea that
we should only treat combat in-
juries, but not those sustained in
training or on the deck of an air-
craft carrier.
"And Barack is the only candi-
date in this election who has put
the middle class at the heart of his
economic plan. "


Today's meeting builds on
the series of roundtable discus-
sions that Mrs. Obama has hosted
with military families over the last
several months to give a voice to
the concerns of men and women
who are facing the challenges of
balancing work and family par-
ticularly in a troubled economy -
and to help communicate Obama
and Biden's plans to support
America's families.
Mrs. Obama has met with mili-
tary spouses and families in North
Carolina, Kentucky, Virginia, New
Mexico and Pennsylvania.
The rally is part of the Obama-
Biden campaign's three day barn-
storm across the state to mark
the beginning of early voting i6i


Florida.:
Democratic Presidential Nom-
inee Barack Obama, Michelle
Obama, U.S. Senator Hillary Clin-
-ton and New Mexico Governor
Bill Richardson will crisscross the
state, speaking with Floridians
about the importance of early vot-
ing and making their voice heard
at the polls in advance of Election.
Day in order to bring the change
we need in Florida and across the
nation.
Mrs. Obama will join her hus-
band in Miami for an 'Early Vote
for Change' rally.
Tomorrow, Mrs. Obama will
host similar events in Jackson-
ville and Gainesville, where she
will be introduced by Command


Sergeant Major Michelle Jones,
who served as the 9th Command
Sergeant Major of the Army Re-
serve from October 2002'through
August 2006, and retired in March
2007 after 25 years of service.
Wendy's father served in the
Navy, her husband entered Active
Duty service during the Vietnam
era and recently retired from the
U.S Army reserve, following ser-
vice in the war in Iraq.
He is currently on a civilian De-
partment of Defense assignment
in Baghdad. Wendy's two sons
have also served in the Army.
