Pahokee's Damon Weaver, now a sixth grader at Canal Point Elementary, spent the final
week of his summer in the nation's capital. With his dream of interviewing President Barack
Obama now realized, he gained screen time last week on cable new networks such as CNN
andl MSNBC.


Weaver lands Obama interview


Kid sensation invited
the U.S. President to
come visit the Glades

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WASHINGTON (D.C.) - Da-
mon Weaver's ultimate dream
has finally come true.
After multiple requests to in-
terview President Barack Obama,
the 11-year-old's plea was an-
swered last week.
Amazingly, Damon was able
to fly to the nation's capital and
have an exclusive sit-down ses-
sion with the U.S. president on
Thursday, Aug. 13.


Now forever etched in Weav-
er's short journalism history,
Damon is reportedly the young-
est person to interview President
Obama.
Here are some excerpts of the
YouTube clip, which lasted for 10
minutes and 21 seconds:
"How are you sir, nice to meet
you," President Obama said to
Damon as he walked into the
Diplomatic Room of the White
House. "You look good, man, in
your suit."
On Damon's biggest stage to
date, he came well-prepared with
interview questions for the presi-
dent, which focused mostly on
education.
President Obama told Damon


that on Sept. 8, when most of
America's children go back to
school, he'll be making a speech
specifically geared toward young
people in efforts to encourage
them to stay in school and how
the school systems across the
country can improve.
Damon to President
Obama: "All across America,
money is being cut from educa-
tion. How can education be im-
proved with all these cuts?
"We, actually, here in the Ad-
ministration, tried to put more
money in schools and there a lot
of schools across the country get-
ting new buildings and facilities,"

abuse



charges

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - A 38-year-old
man has been implicated in an
abuse of a teenage girl. The inci-
dent is alleged to have happened
during the afternoon hours of Aug.
12.
According to an affidavit pro-
vided by the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office (PBSO), the sus-
pect purfimeled the 17-year-old
girl to the ground with his hands
around her neck.
It was revealed by authori-
ties that the victim was frantically
bleeding from the mouth, with her
facial features swollen.
When deputies had reportedly
investigated a trespass violation in
the 2400's block of palm Glades
Drive, they heard an unrelated al-
tercation occurring nearby.
As detectives listened in on what
was being said, they reportedly
heard this a person yelling loudly
at the other to stay down.
It was later determined that the
suspect had uttered those words,
as he was reportedly found wear-
ing a black tank top.
That's when deputies were able
to apprehend the suspect.
When authorities report-
edly arrested the man, the victim

Clewiston's Pop Warner teams aims for bright season


Jamboree Classic is this
weekend (Aug. 22-23)

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON - Ready, set.
Go.
That's what the Clewiston Cougars foot-
ball program is looking forward to do, with
the season beginning this weekend.
The Pop Warner program's six teams are
the Tiny Mites, the Mighty Mites, the Junior
Pee-Wees, the Pee-Wees, the Jr. Midgets and
the Senior Midgets.
As the program looks to build on the suc-
cess it had from last year, one thing certainly
won't change: And that's focusing on the
fundamental basics, which have been key to
each team finishing with a winning record
last season.
Of all the six teams from 2008, it was the
Jr. Midgets who looked the strongest in the
Cougar program.
The Jr. Midgets (10-2 last season) won the
Peace River Conference championship with
a victory over the North Fort Myers Knights.
Unfortunately, that team lost the next
playoff game, a regional contest held in
Tampa.
The Sr. Midgets, who finished with a 6-3
record last season, qualified for the Peace
River Conference playoffs.
Meanwhile, the Pee-Wees were 5-4 to fin-
ish the 2008 year, with a first round playoff
loss to the Englewood Wildcats.
As for the Jr. Pee-Wees, they fared even
better, reaching the Peace River Conference
championship game.
The Jr. Pee-Wees loss to the North Port


Mustangs in the championship put them at
9-2 to conclude the 2008 season.
Juan Norton, the Jr. Pee-Wees head
coach, likes to keep this upcoming year and
last in proper perspective.
With 27 players on Norton's team - 12 re-
turning and are 15 newcomers - he knows
anything can happen this season.
"Our strength is our defense," Norton
said on the Jr. Pee-Wees. "We're very young,
but we'll try to do what we did last season,
and that's sticking to the basics. It carried us
to the playoffs last season."
Cougars fans can expect to see simple
running and passing plays from the Jr. Pee-
Wees at this weekend's Jamboree Classic.
The offensive line will be a key determi-
nant in how far the Jr. Pee-Wees go this sea-
son, with many of them either moving up
from the Mighty Mites or playing football for
the first time.
Most of the returning players are on de-
fense, so it won't be much to ask the players
to stop the opposition's run and passing at-
tacks throughout the year.
The Jr. Pee-Wees, as well as the Pee-
Wees, the Jr. Midgets and the Sr. Midgets,
will be playing in the Jamboree preseason
game Saturday in LaBelle.
First half action will be played against
the LaBelle Longhorns, while the second
half is slated to see the four Cougars teams
and their counterparts from the Naples Hur-
ricanes get into action.
"We won't do anything spectacular this
weekend," Norton said.
The same can't exactly be said for the
Mighty Mites, as they finished last season
with an undefeated 8-0 record.
Incredibly, the Mighty Mites, who field 26
players, haven't lost a game in more than

three years, according to April White, the
Cougars program secretary.
White simple sums up what's expected
from this team in 2009.
"For the Mighty Mites to lose a game this
season, it would be devastating not only to
the kids, but to the coaches as well," she
said.
The Tiny Mites, meanwhile, finished last
season 6-2, with both of its losses coming
to LaBelle.
Neither the Mighty Mites or the Tiny Mites
can qualify for the playoffs, as there's no sys-

tem in place for it.
Nevertheless, both teams will grace Cane
Field on Sunday when they host the Jambo-
ree Classic.
And that's fine with White, who has been
impressed with all six teams thus far.
"All of them are stars," White said of the
Cougars players. "They've been practicing
real hard and now they're looking forward
to the Jamboree."
Here's the 2009 season schedule for the
Clewiston Cougars program:
Saturday, 8/29 @ 10 a.m. - Clewiston
Cougars at Riverdale Wildcats (Away)
Saturday, 9/5 @ 10 a.m. - Clewiston

More Swine Flu deaths are confirmed in Florida


Additional laboratory confirmed H1NI
Swine Flu deaths have been verified in that
of the following: A 27-year-old female in Os-
ceola County, a 28-year-old female in Hills-
borough County, a 25-year-old female in
Orange County, a 70-year-old female in Or-
ange County, a 45-year-old female in Dade
County, a 53-year-old male in Dade County, a
60-year-old male in Dade County, a 65-year-
old male in Dade County, and a 53-year-old
male in Lee County.
While most cases of H 1N Swine Flu are
mild, there are exceptions.
Pre-existing health conditions often play
a role in how individuals react to the flu.
To-date, there have been 41 laboratory
confirmed H1N1 Swine Flu deaths in Flor-
ida.
"Our hearts and prayers go out to the
family and friends of these individuals," said
Surgeon General Dr. Ana Viamonte Ros.
"H1N1 Swine Flu, like seasonal flu, can in
some circumstances be very serious, there-
fore, all of us should continue to adhere to
good health practices including, stay home
if sick, cover cough and sneeze, and wash
hands frequently."
All four Department of Health laborato-
ries have received testing supplies from the
Center for Diseases Control and can test
samples to confirm 1N1 Swine Flu.

Health professionals are encouraging everyone to wash their hands more fre-
quently to lessen the spread of diseases like Swine Flu.


This testing capability allows the Depart-
ment to expedite results as we no longer
need to send probable cases to CDC labo-
ratories.
The Department of Health continues en-
hanced surveillance and outreach to physi-
cians, hospitals and other health care profes-
sionals.
The surveillance system, consisting of
sentinel physicians, reporting influenza ac-
tivity, DOH laboratories receiving specimens
from physicians and hospitals and our ability
to monitor emergency room cases and over-

the-counter drug sales is fully operational.
We have activated our response plan and
are ready to respond if needed..
Department of Health continues its en-
hanced surveillance with a network of senti-
nel physician providers.
These providers send selected samples of
laboratory specimens .to state laboratories
for testing if they have patients with influen-
za-like illness (ILI).
These physicians also continue to re-
port weekly ILI cases to the Department of
Health.

The World Health Organization (WHO)
alert level is at Phase 6 "pandemic."
The pandemic (WHO level 6) status is
based on geographic distribution and not
the severity of swine flu.
In effect the WHO is saying that swine flu
HIN1 is now circulating world-wide.
The State Surgeon General provided
these recommendations:
People with respiratory illness should stay
home from work or school to avoid spread-
ing infections, including influenza, to others
in the community.

* Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or otherwise appear ill.

* Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.

* Wash hands frequently to lessen the
spread of respiratory illness.

People experiencing cough, fever and fa-
tigue, possibly along with diarrhea and vom-
iting, should contact their physician.
If you think you have influenza, please
call your health care provider and discuss
whether you need to be seen in their office,
emergency department or stay home.

A Minute of Health from the



HCHD: Quit for your Family's Sake


By: Valarie L. James
Approximately one in five people in the
U.S. still smoke, despite its well-known and
highly publicized negative health effects, In-
cluding cancer and heart disease.
Itharms nearly every organ of the body.

Why should you quit smoking? Here's
one reason: your family cares about
you.


There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot Locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and
help them succeed tomorrow. Start with our free
parent and teacher action kits. And let your kids
begin the adventure of a lifetime.
Ws a wonderful world. Explorel


Each year, almost half a million Americans
die from this addiction.
Quitting smoking has immediate and
long-term benefits for you and your loved
ones.
There are many effective strategies out
there to help someone quit smoking, but
most smokers don't use them.
Proven interventions, such as assistance
from a health-care provider, medications,
and counseling, can increase a smoker's


chance for success.
Quitting smoking is
worth the effort.


not easy, but it is

Walk in the Past: The Treaty of Moultrie Creek


The day Seminoles
relinquished 24 million
acres to the United
States Government

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
La Florida became a United States territo-
ry when the Adams-Onis Treaty was drawn
up in 1819.
In the terms of the treaty, the United
States relinquished claims to parts of Texas,
and agreed to pay Spain $5 million for the:
territorial rights to Spanish Florida.
Spain ratified the treaty in 1820 and the
United States ratified it in 1821.
The United States now owned La Florida,
a territory whose fertile lands awaited the
southern settler's plows and grazing cattle.
To the Southern settlers, the purchase of
Florida was indeed "Paradise" gained, but to
its Indian and black inhabitants, Florida had
become "Paradise Lost."
The Indian leaders knew they must now
comply with the new government's de-
mands, if there was to be peace between the
Seminole Nation and the United States.
The signatures on the Adam-Onis Trea-
ty's legal documents probably didn't have
sufficient time to dry before the American
representatives were asking the question,
"What are we going to do with the Seminole
Indians and blacks?"
The question was a valid, but very diffi-
cult one to answer because there were no.
short-term resolutions to the Indian and
black problem in Florida.
In 1821, the United States became the
guardian of over 5,000 Seminole Indians liv-
ing in Florida.
Their villages were scattered across
northern Florida and extended south to
Tampa Bay.
However, most of the Seminoles lived


between the Suwannee River and Alachua,
which was considered by some Americans
as one of the riches and most valuable ter-
ritories in Florida.
One of those Americans was William
P. DuVal, who was appointed Governor of
Florida in 1822.
He advocated whites should have the
rich farmlands and that the Florida Semi-
noles. be relocated to Alabama, where some
of the Upper Creeks lived or further west to
the Mississippi.
President James Monroe disagreed with
DuVal's Indian Policy, but later started whis-
tling a different tune when white settlers be-
gan pressuring him to remove the Indians
from Florida.
In 1823, President Monroe recommend-
ed the Indians be removed from Florida or
placed on reservations.
The lands out west hadn't been fully
explored by the United States government,
so Secretary of War Calhoun proposed that
commissioners be appointed to negotiate
with the Seminoles and obtain their agree-
ment to move to lands south of Charlotte
Harbor and Peace River.
Calhoun also granted the commission-
ers the authority to move the Indian land
boundary as far north as Tampa Bay, if the
lands south of Peace River were infertile.
Calhoun appointed James Gadson of
South Carolina, Bernardo Suqui of Florida
and William P. DuVal as the commissioners
to negotiate with the Seminoles.
The area selected for the negotiations was
on the north bank of Moultrie Creek, which
was about five miles from St. Augustine.
Approximately 425 Seminoles traveled
from villages as far away as 300 miles to at-
tend the negotiations.
A temporary shelter was constructed for
the negotiations that lasted two weeks.
The Seminole leader, Neamathla, who
had fought against Andrew Jackson in the
First Seminole Indian War, stated that he
was willing to move on a reservation, but


Photo/philaprintshop.com
Neamathia, a Seminole, was willing to move his people to reservations, but ex-
pressed that some lands were not fertile.


pointed out that the lands south of Peace
River weren't fertile.
. The reservation boundaries were en-
larged and extended north of the Peace
River to Ocala.
The final negotiations resulted in a Semi-
nole Indian reservation that would later be
increased to 5,865,000 acres in 1827.
An amendment was also made to the
original draft, so that Neamathla and several
other chiefs could continue to live in their vil-
lages along the Apalachicola River in North
Florida.
The Treaty of Moultrie Creek was signed
in 1823 by thirty-two Seminoles and three
United States representatives.
The ten article treaty called for the Semi-
noles to relinquish nearly 24 million acres,
which the American government could sell
to white settlers for $1.25 an acre.
In return the Seminoles were allowed to
stay in Florida on the lands designated as In-
dian Reservations.
The larger, central reservation (5,865,000)
boundaries stopped just north of present day
Ocala and extended south of Tampa Bay.
Coastal boundaries restricted the reserva-
tion inland 15 miles on the west coast and
20 miles inland on the east coast.
These inland boundaries were established
to discourage the Cubans from trading arms
and ammunition with the Seminoles.
The Seminoles would be paid an annu-
ity of $5,000 for the next twenty years, food
supplies for a year, plus provisions for a
school, farming implements, livestock, and


other domestic improvements.
An American military post would be. es-
tablished on Tampa Bay to stop the Cubans
from trading with the Indians.
A fort was built in 1824 on the banks of
the Hillsborough River, which flowed into
Tampa Bay.
The fort was later named Ft. Brooke, after
its commander Colonel George M. Brooke.
The Treaty of Moultrie Creek took lands
from the Seminoles and placed them on res-
ervations that graphically divided them.
White encroachment and restricted res-
ervations would lead to frictions between
the Seminole Nation and white settlers.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of
a Tale" that you would like to share.

Teens getting behind the wheel


By Pat Dobbins R.N., M.S./H.S.A.
Ah! Getting behind the wheel -- that mag-
ical feeling of freedom!
Teenagers can hardly wait to get behind
the wheel for the very first time but parents
tend to have mixed feelings.
Reaching teens with any kind of message
is a difficult challenge for parents.
Parents are relieved that they don't have
to always be the chauffer, but worry about
their teen's safety.
Parents need to "practice what they
preach."
Teens are more likely to wear a seatbelt,
follow the rules of the road, and be a calm
and courteous driver if they see you doing
the same.
Teens need to remember that driving is


a privilege, not a right, and not all teens are
ready to drive even when the law says they
can.
Just because a teen has a permit, doesn't
mean they are ready for every driving condi-
tion.
Most crashes involving teen drivers in-
clude one of the following factors: Nighttime
driving, speeding, teen passengers, weather
conditions, reckless driving, inexperience,
and alcohol.
Motor vehicle crashes are the number-
one cause of death among American teens
and sixty-five percent of teen passenger
deaths happen when another teenager is
driving!
Over 5,000 teens die each year in car
crashes!


That's over 13 teens per day!
The best thing a parent can do is to start
teaching children at a young age about safe
driving and then once the teen has a permit,
let them practice-practice-practice!
Ultimately, the teen will have to make
decisions about their driving habits, but it's
up to parents to be role models and enforce
rules to encourage safe driving.
Ask your insurance agent or the local
department of motor vehicles for more in-
formation on teen driving and remember to
buckle up!
Patricia Dobbins is the Administrator for the
Hendry and Glades County Health Departments.

Golden minutes: Aeromed Medical transport


Aeromed fills need in area

By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Medical air transports are all about speed;
getting a critical patient to the best medical
care possible from a remote location.
Now with a permanent base at LaBelle
Airport Aeromed, out of Tampa General
Hospital, is covering calls in Hendry-Glades
and in Charlotte County. They also have a
mutual aid agreement with Lee and Collier
counties.
Beginning last May 1, the company em-
barked on a shared risk program: Aeromed
handles the medical crew and dispatching,
while Air Methods Corporation provides the
aircraft, pilot and mechanics.
According to Public Safety Director
Randy Bengston, the partnership has thus
far been "outstanding," Mr. Bengston has a
unique perspective on Aeromed, both as a
long time emergency medical professional
and as a former patient. It was an Aeromed
team that transported him in an emergency
situation about a year ago. In addition to
excellent medical care in flight, he said the
crew's report to the doctors at the hospital
was very professional. Mr. Bengston quickly
adds that it's not his status as the county's
top emergency officer that earned this treat-
ment. "Everybody says the same thing," he
assures you. It's just the standard Aeromed
performance.
"Aeromed offers another option for pa-
tients," Mr. Bengston said. Hendry County
also uses air flight transports out of Lee, Col-
lier, Martin counties and Miami on occasion,
depending on availability. However, having
Aeromed located in LaBelle expedites pa-
tient care.
Dubbed Aeromed 5, the LaBelle Airport
station joins four other Aeromed sites: Tam-
pa, Sebring, Wildwood and Bartow.
Chief Flight Nurse Dan Kresge heads up
crews that pair up a nurse/paramedic like
himself with a paramedic. They typically
work 24-hour shifts. The mobile home be-
side the Aeromed hangar provides a home
away from home for the medical crew. A pi-
lot, working a 12-hour shift, rounds out the
team.
Mechanics work regular shifts, keeping
the 40' twin engine EC 135 helicopter that


is the workhorse of the operation in good
repair. The $3.5 million machine averages
about 30 hours flying time per month. That
may not sound like a lot, but those hours
represent critical minutes when a life is in
the balance.
Aeromed requires five years critical ex-
perience for RNs and for paramedics in an
Emergency Medical Services position. Dan
said Aeromed medical crews average ten
years experience per member. Most Aer-
omed pilots were military trained with an
average flight time of some 6,000 hours.
Pilot John Barber said the biggest dif-
ference in flying medical transport is that
they're landing on roads or off-road areas
that are not as controlled as an airport.
Dan explains what happens when a call
comes through. A Hendry County ambu-
lance team arrives at the scene and con-
cludes that they need a helicopter transport.
They call their dispatcher, who calls the
Aeromed dispatcher and a team takes off.
Using GPS coordinates, the flight team con-
tacts the local crew at the landing zone.
The local fire department team at the
scene sets up the landing zone and secures
it by clearing the ground. The LZ is usually
marked with a strobe light at night or cones
by day.
At the scene, the Aeromed team assess-
es the patient. Trauma victims are usually
taken to Lee Memorial - about a 15 minute
flight from Hendry County.
According to Mr. Bengston, there are 47
established landing zones in Hendry County
although several, including Pioneer Shell,
Southern Gardens, Airglades and the LaBelle
Airport are primary locations.
Pilot John Barber began as a helicop-
ter pilot in Viet Nam in 1971. He said he's
"amazed at what they do in the back," es-
pecially when you consider the jostling that
can happen in the air.
John said, from a pilot's perspective, the
worst calls are usually at night in marginal
weather. Dan said the biggest medical chal-
lenge is usually a trauma alert or big car
crash. "Nobody likes pediatric calls," he
said, "but we're glad we're there." Burns are
tough; too, he added.
Paramedic Noah Connell has six years
experience in the medical field. He's been
on the job with Aeromed for three months.
He also works on the Seminole Tribe Fire

Department at Brighton Reservation.
When not on a call, the team stays busy
with routine education and daily duties.
Dan helped set up Aeromed 3 and 4 and
understands the need to develop close rela-
tionships with the local fire departments. He
wanted to thank Hendry County Fire/EMS
for the red carpet they've rolled out for Aer-
omed and the smooth incorporation of its
services into the county.
Patients are billed for the service. Mr.
Bengston said all the county had to provide
was a certificate of need. In fact, Aeromed
rents the doublewide trailer at the airport for
its personnel, along with half of the Fixed


Base Operator hangar and office space.
They also purchase fuel from the county.
Altogether, it's a "win-win" situation for the
county, Mr. Bengston said.
Tom Vaughan, manager for both the
LaBelle Airport and Airglades, echoes that
statement. "They're being here is a good
benefit from an economic standpoint in
addition to providing a service for the com-
munity," he said adding that, with this eco-
nomic downturn, they help make up for the
loss in income from general aviation.
Aeromed provides the inestimable com-
ponent of time to critical medical emergen-
cies - at no cost to the county.


INI/Patty Brant
Aeromed, at no cost to the county itself, will be providing emergency coverage
to the residents of Hendry County.

OEO: Eviction of families with children under 18 violated Fair Housing Laws


The Palm Beach County Office of Equal
Opportunity (OEO) has made a determina-
tion of reasonable grounds in a dozen cases
that Alston Management, Inc., Matthew 25
Ministries and Miracle Park, Inc. (respon-
dent) violated the county's fair housing
ordinance by threatening to evict families
with children under the age of 18.
This constitutes familial status discrimi-
nation as both Palm Beach County's Fair
Housing Ordinance and the federal Fair
Housing Act prohibit actions that restrict
housing opportunities for families with chil-
dren under the age of 18 years.
In January 2009, OEO learned that Peli-
can Lake Village, located near Pahokee, was


being leased to a prison ministry forcing out
residents with children under age 18.
OEO further learned that the manage-
ment company, Alston Management, Inc.,
sent a letter to residents indicating that the
property was sold to Miracle Park, Inc. as an
"adults only community" and if there were
children under the age of 18 years old, the
resident and children would have to vacate
the property before January 1, 2009.
The letter went on to say if the resident
refused to move or comply with the new
owner, the resident would be evicted. This
discouraged families with children from
continuing residency or applying to live
there. Furthermore, the property was not


otherwise exempt and had not been reg-
istered with the state as housing for older
persons.
The cases are currently being concili-
ated by OEO to see if an agreement can be
reached to resolve the matter between the
parties. If conciliation is unsuccessful, the
tenants may request a hearing before the
Fair Housing Board or file a lawsuit in state
or federal court.
Fair housing laws in Palm Beach County
prohibit a housing provider from discrimi-
nating based on race, color, national origin,
religion, sex, familial status, disability, sexu-
al orientation, age, marital status or gender
identity or expression.


These laws specifically prohibit refusing
to rent, or otherwise taking action to deny
housing, to families with children (unless
the housing meets certain requirements
as housing for older persons). http://www.
hud.gov/offices/fheo/FHLaws/index.cfm.
The OEO is the county department
charged with enforcement of the county's
equal employment, fair housing and public
accommodations ordinances.
Persons wishing information on the fil-
ing of a complaint may go to the OEO Web
site at: www.pbcgov.org/equal opportunity
or contact OEO at (561) 355-4883.

Six simple



steps to



prepare



for severe



weather
* Create a family disaster plan - The
Department of Commerce (DOC) recom-
mends that families create a disaster plan
that they practice and maintain. The DOC
suggests the plan include instructions for
evacuations, health emergencies, safety,
loss of water, gas, electricity and/or tele-
phone.
SKnow the difference between watch
and warning - A severe weather WATCH
means conditions are possible in the
specified area usually within 36 hours. A
severe weather WARNING means condi-
tions are expected in the specified area
within 24 hours.
* Inspect home and yard for poten-
tial hazards - The Home Safety Council
(HSC) advises homeowners to remove
outdoor items such as lawn furniture and
trash cans as they may become airborne
during a severe storm. It also is impor-
tant to trim or cut down weak trees and
branches which are easily broken off by
high winds arid may damage a home.
Severe weather can bring intense rain-
fall. The HSC recommends homeowners
keep rain gutters, outside stairwells, win-
dow wells, drain lines and down spouts;
clean to prevent flooding.
* Secure backup power - Flashlights
cannot power refrigerators or life-saving
medical equipment and candles are dan-
gerous. The only way to ensure access to
power when a power outage occurs is to
install an automatic standby generator.
The American Red Cross suggests that
for power outages, permanently installed
stationary generators are better suited
for providing backup power to the home
than portable generators.
* Protect your home's openings -
The National Institute for Business and
Home Safety (IBHS) lists the protection
of openings as one of the most important
precautions homeowners can take to im-
prove the chance their home will survive
a storm. Openings include all windows,
entry doors, sliding glass doors, garage
doors and gable end vents.
* Check your insurance policy - Most
homeowner policies do not cover dam-
age from flooding that may result from
a hurricane or severe weather. Ask an
insurance agent or emergency manage-
ment office for information about the Na-
tional Flood Insurance Program or other
flood insurance programs.

Stormwater Treatment Areas treat water before it enters the Everglades, ridding it of phosphorus agents.


West Palm Beach, FL - For the 14th con-
secutive year, water flowing out of the farm-
lands in the Everglades Agricultural Area
(EAA) and into the Everglades achieved
phosphorus reductions that were again bet-
ter than the 25 percent reduction required
by law.
With the continued implementation of
improved farming techniques, results for the
2009 monitoring period show a 68 percent
phosphorus reduction in the 500,000-acre
EAA farming region south of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
"The region's agricultural community has
continually strengthened its commitment to
protecting and improving South Florida's
ecosystems," said SFWMD Governing Board
Chair Eric Buermann. ,
"The solid performance record and con-
tinued commitment will serve to further im-
prove water quality."
Phosphorus reductions were largely
achieved through Best Management Prac-
tices, or BMPs.
BMPs are improved ways of farming -
all with the goal of improving water quality.
In the EAA, the most commonly used
BMPs are improved fertilizer application, im-
proved stormwater pumping practices and
erosion controls to reduce the amount of
phosphorus discharge to the Everglades and
connected water bodies.
Phosphorus can harm the Everglades
ecosystem when stormwater runoff carries
excess amounts into the protected wet-
lands.
To meet the requirements of Florida's�
Everglades Forever Act, the amount of phos-
phorus leaving the EAA must be 25 percent
less than before phosphorus-reduction ef-
forts started.
Data for the 2009 annual monitoring pe-
riod show that a 68-percent phosphorus re-
duction was achieved this year.
The average reduction from the imple-
mentation of BMPs over the program's 14-
year history is 54 percent, more than twice


the amount required by law.
When measured in actual mass, 278 met-
ric tons of phosphorus were prevented from
entering the regional canal system, which
sends water into the Everglades, during the
monitoring period from May 1, 2008, to April
30, 2009.
Over the past 14 years, the BMP program
kept approximately 2,000 metric tons of
phosphorus out of the Everglades.
Together with best farming practices,
water leaving the EAA receives additional
treatment in one of several Stormwater
Treatment Areas (STAs) before entering the
Everglades.
These wetlands - constructed by the
SFWMD - are filled with native vegetation
and use "green" technology to further re-
duce phosphorus levels.
Since 1994, STAs south of Lake Okeecho-
bee - with a combined area of more than
52,000 acres - have retained more than
1,200 metric tons of phosphorus that would
have otherwise entered the Everglades.
The latest data indicate that through
treatment wetlands and the BMP program,
more than 3,200 metric tons of phosphorus
have been prevented from entering the Ev-
erglades.
Overall, Florida has invested more than
$1.8 billion to improve Everglades water
quality since 1994.
While the EAA continues to meet its tar-
gets, work is continuing to improve water
quality in the C-139 Basin, approximately
170,000 acres of primarily pasture land, row
crops, citrus and sugarcane located west of
the EAA.
Unlike the EAA, the predominantly sandy
soils and gravity drainage within the C-139
Basin present unique challenges to achiev-
ing nutrient reductions.
While the C-139 Basin achieved phos-
phorus reduction goals in 2008, results for
Water Year 2009 (May 1, 2008 - April 30,
2009) indicate the basin fell short of targets
in the Everglades Forever Act. A BMP pro-


gram has been in place for seven years in
the C-139 Basin.
The District is currently expanding sev-
eral water quality improvement projects to
further enhance its water cleaning efforts:
*The SFWMD Governing Board ap-
proved a 4,656-acre expansion of treatment
wetlands in southeast Hendry County. Con-
struction of "Compartment C," a $47.5 mil-
lion investment in restoration, will connect
two existing Stormwater Treatment Areas
(STA-5 and STA-6) in the EAA and more than
double water treatment capability at the
site.
*The renovation of Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 5 in Hendry County is enhancing
plant growth and water movement through
the 8,000-acre treatment marsh.
District crews moved 407,270 cubic yards
of soil in STA-5, shaping the land surface
more evenly so that a larger area of wet-
land vegetation can improve the treatment
area's ability to remove phosphorus from
Everglades-bound waters.
The District's historic plan to purchase
land from the U.S. Sugar Corporation repre-
sents the next step in improving Everglades
water quality, complementing the BMP pro-
gram with a managed system of storage and
treatment to protect Florida's coastal estuar-
ies and to better revive, restore and preserve
the fabled River of Grass.
Environmental benefits include:
*Increasing water storage to reduce
harmful freshwater discharges from Lake
Okeechobee' to Florida's coastal rivers and
estuaries.
*Improving delivery of cleaner water to
the Everglades.
*Preventing tons of phosphorus from en-
tering the Everglades.
*Eliminating the need for "back-pump-
ing" water into Lake Okeechobee.

water quality improvement initiatives, please

Water Quality Improvements [PDF].

Lord of all Creation
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
God's wisdom is seen in the making of
the elephant.
The four legs of the elephant all bend for-
ward in the same direction.
No other quadruped is so made.
Because of this, elephants, with their
great mass, can rise up from a prone posi-
tion.
Horses rise up from the ground on their
two front legs first.
Cows rise from the ground first by their
hind legs.
It's amazing how our Creator God has
put everything together.
Watermelons have an even number of
stripes on them.
Oranges have an even number of seg-
ments.
An ear of corn has an even number of
rows, and each stalk of wheat has an even
number of grains.
Every bunch of bananas has an even
number of bananas, and each row decreas-
es by one.
And I've been told that ocean waves roll
in on shore twenty-six per minute in all kinds
of weather.
Looking around, we can see God in all
creation, and realize even more fully that our
Lord has an order for His creation so that it
will carry out plans and purposes.
How great it is to think about the way our
Creator God planned everything so carefully,
everything with a plan.
God is all around us, evidenced in His
creation.
It brings to mind the words of the great
hymn; "0 Lord, my God, when I in awe-
some wonder, consider all the worlds Thy
hands have made, I see the stars, I hear the
rolling thunder, Thy power throughout the
universe displayed..... When through the
woods and forest glades I wander, and hear
the birds sing sweetly in the trees.... Then
sings my soul, my Savior God, to Thee; How
Great Thou art, how great Thou art!"
"For since the creation of the world God's
invisible qualities--His eternal power and
divine nature--have been clearly seen, be-
ing understood from what has been made,
so that men are without excuse." Romans
1:20.

Conscientiousness!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Our word "conscience" is derived from
two Latin words "con" and "scio". "Con"
means "with" and "scio" means "know".
From "scio" we have our common word
"science".
So, conscience simply means "con-sci-
ence", or "know with" or "agree with".
The conscience is a faculty that passes
judgment upon a man's own thoughts, feel-
ings, and actions.
These are judged to be either good or
bad, depending upon what they are, and
how a man has been taught to look upon
them.
If a man has been correctly schooled and
does right, he has a good conscience.
If he has been correctly taught, but does
wrong, he had a bad conscience.
If he has been incorrectly instructed, but
acts according to his teaching (which is
wrong), he will have a good conscience.
Thus, it was with Paul, who, though he
did many things that were right and few
things that were wrong, "lived in all good
conscience until" the day that he spoke
(Acts 23:1).
For a man to have a good conscience or
a bad conscience is no accurate measure of
his thoughts, feelings, or actions.
A bad conscience is one that has not
been honored by the best of man's ability
to think, feel, and act as he had been taught
that he should.
It is apparent then, that when we call
"bad" conscience is one that reproves a
man's thoughts and feelings, or actions (or
all three) as not being what they should be,
and that a "good" conscience is one that ap-
proves a man's thoughts, feelings, and ac-
tions as being what they should be.
Conscienteousness is having knowledge
influenced by the conscience.
It is allowing thoughts only that have
been censured by the inner man.
It is permitting feelings only that have
been approved by a man's best self.
It is consenting to actions only that have
been consented to by one's ideal.
Applied, it is living the way we would se-
cretly wish to live if it were convenient; living
the way we would advise others to live.
As far as God is concerned, unless an

awakened conscience smites one to act
immediately, a man ceases to have a good
conscience.
If the consceince smites once, it is con-
viction, but if he must smite twice, it is con-
demnaton.
Don't forget, that in order for the con-
science to be a safe guide, it must be fed the
TRUTH!
One can feed his mind falsehoods and
thus rest in false security.
Instead of "always letting your conscience
by your guide" a much better motto would
be "always let THE BIBLE be your guide"!
For Jesus said, "and ye shall know the
TRUTH and the TRUTH shall set you free"
and "thy word is TRUTH O God."

By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
People say bad things about growing
old.
Try as we may, it's still happening and
nobody has come up with an antidote for
the outcome.
That seems like how God intended it to
be.
However, He has given us some ways to
abundant life while we're still on His. earth;
to use, to savor, to enjoy, to be thankful.
I remember having read in the Bible one
of the typical signs of old age.
"Isaac was old, his eyes were so weak
he could no longer see (Genesis 27:1)" and
Moses being a noted exception; "Moses was
one hundred twenty years old when he died,
yet his eyes were not weak nor his strength
gone (Deuteronomy 34:7)" are two exam-
ples.
Eli, who mentored Samuel was described
as "very old (1 Samuel 2:22) and "...whose
eyes were becoming so weak that he could
barely see... (ch. 3, v. 2)" is another reminder
that age somehow brings limited vision.
It also brings problems with knees and
backs.
In the evolutionary chain of development,
one of the last things to be accomplished
was walking upright; knees and backs are
still in need of perfection.

Ask anyone with a cane or a walker; they
can tell you about what wears out first!
Today, there are interventions and re-
placements that make possible getting
around without pain or paralysis.
AT.V. documentary the other evening fea-
tured a completely paralyzed scientist send-
ing messages via his computer, monitoring
his brain waves and in turn allowing him to
compose messages solely by his thoughts.
Another woman controlled a wheel chair
through her mental processes only; direct-
ing it toward the door of her home and then
turning it around.
The fountain of youth is still a myth; but
the amelioration of living is ours.
I choose to see it as a gift from God.
The eyes that used to grow dim now see;
and sometimes see better than ever before;
the limitations of mobility are no longer as
limiting, and many walk or even play sports
when they were formerly confined.
We are verging on ways of combining
our very wishes to move or communicate
with electro-mechanical ways to overcome
all sorts of handicaps.
Where does God have a place in it all?
I choose to see it as revelation.
In the midst of all of the problems we
face; the environment, the economy, the job
market, the ongoing wars; the depletion of
needed resources, God is making it possible
for us to still be around and live well!
He seems to be saying "I'll make your life
better, now solve your problems and be able
to make full use of the gift of a long and bet-
ter life here!"
God is saying "Care for my world, stop
senseless tragedies, make use of the things
you have learned to give you a better life,
love one another...." and with it will come a
foretaste of Heaven.
God has given us many ways to enjoy it;
the rest is up to us!

President Obama said in response.
"We're now putting more money into
training good teachers and giving them more
support. We think it's important to put more
money in the schools, but money alone is
not going to make a difference.
"We need to improve on how the schools
are operating...I hope we can see some im-
provement not only with money, but also in
reforming how the schools work."
Damon got President Obama to dig even
deeper in his education initiative, as he want-
ed to know how less than privileged areas
such as Pahokee - Damon's hometown - will
receive future state and federal assistance.
"I want to see states be more fair in terms
of how they give money to schools around
their communities," Obama said.


"I do think it's important how we can
find help from the federal government for
schools that need the most help."
Obama on educational opportunities for
kids across the country:
"Parents are the most important thing
to any child's ability to do well in school,"
Obama said to Damon.
"So, making sure that you're reading to
your child, especially when they're young,
even before they get to school, so that they
start getting used to reading.
"I think it's important to make sure that
kids are doing their homework and not just
playing video games. I think all children can
do well as long as they have the support they
need'."
Damon pressed Obama on what needs
to be done to improve school lunches.
"There's a lot of french fries, pizza, tater
tots and all kinds of stuff that isn't a well-bal-
anced meal. We want to make sure we have
more fruits and vegetables in the school.


Kids may not end up liking it so much, but
it'll be heather for them."
In an unintentionally funny sequence,
Damon suggested that there were french
fries and mangoes everyday for lunch.
"I'm not sure we can get mangoes in ev-
ery school because they only grow in hot
temperatures. There are a lot of schools up
north that don't have mango trees."
Later on in the interview, Damon asked
President Obama what it's like to be presi-
dent.
"It's very exciting,, it's a lot of work,"
Obama responded.
"There are times you get a little work
down, but everyday you have the possibility
of helping other people. If you can do that,
then that's a great thing."
SAs for the possibility of playing Miami
Heat superstar guard Dwayne Wade one-
on-one in basketball:
"I would play Dwayne Wade and Dwayne
was here," Obama said of the Heat guard.

"I'm sorry that he was trash-talkinig at his
game. I gotta to admit, though, he's a little tit
better than me," the president continued.
"I would rather be plaining on his team
against someone else than playing against
him."
Damon recently told this reporter in a
,telephone interview that he would invite
Obama to come to the Glades and visit Ca-
nal Point Elementary School.
Is President Obama actually interested?
"Well, I hope that at some point, I get a
chance to come visit your school because
you did a great job at this interview," Obama
said to Damon.
And for that, Obama is now Damon's
'homeboy' too, just like Vice President Joe
Biden.

screamed this to them:
"He's crazy, he tried to kill me," the'victim
said. Investigators revealed the suspect was
the victim's father.
The suspect reportedly explained to dep-
uties the action took place because 'she was
out of control.' Without being specific, the
suspect reportedly used this reason to shove
the victim to the ground.
The victim was transported to Glades
General Hospital, where she was treated
for her wounds. The suspect, Andrea D. Ed-
wards, faces a felony count of child abuse,
according to the Fla. State Statutes.
Bond was set for $3,000, as he has not
been released from the Palm Beach County
Jail since being booked on Aug. 12. This in-
cident reportedly occurred at 3:45 p.m.
