Fun Day: Busy weekend for PBSO


The Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office (PBSO) had a full plate on Saturday, July 25, with
District Five Captain Larry Easton (right) overseeing his officers at both Pahokee's Putting
Kids First event and South Bay's Family Fun Day event. Easton enjoyed his time in South Bay
last weekend with PBSO Lt. Rob Sandt, the District 11-South Bay commander.



Sewer project begins in Canal Point


Roswell Harrington:
'It's the beginning of
great things to come'
By Naji Tobias
The Sun
CANAL POINT - There are only
six businesses in this small city,
according to Roswell Harrington,
a former resident.
Those entities include a junk-
yard, an apartment complex, a
fish house, a carnival store, a


Stop and Shop convenience store
and a pump line facility.
It's been a major concern of
Harrington's, as he's adamant
about future growth plans in the
quiet community.
He believes that in order for
more businesses to come to
Canal Point, including a gas sta-
tion, a sewer connection is badly
needed.
That has been the case for the
past 12 years, according to Har-
rington.
It will soon no longer be the


case, courtesy of the Palm Beach
County Utilities Department.
On July 8, officials from the
City of Pahokee and the county's
utilities department formally rec-
ognized Canal Point's need for a
sewer system.
According to Sylvia Sharps,
who's the contracts/grants co-
ordinator-for the county's water
utilities, the Canal Point Sewer
Project is slated to be constructed
in two phases, with the first one

SOUTH BAY - A 57-year-old
man received fatal injuries in an af-

July 22 in South Bay.
Desmond Dunkley was the vic-
tim of a homicide investigators be-
lieve may have been drug related.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office (PBSO), de-
tectives and deputies scoured the
area in search of the suspect min-
utes after the shooting.
The short manhunt led officials
to two suspects who may have
been connected to the crime.
The shooting occurred at 685 N.

Terriers to conduct Big Dog testing


Bond: 'I expect several
records to be broken'

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN - It's been a relatively
uneventful summer when it comes to the
Moore Haven Terriers football team.
But that's all about to change, as the team
gets ready to conduct a series of weightlift-
ing and agility evaluations next week.
On Monday, Aug. 3 and Wednesday, Aug.
5, the Terriers will engage in Big Dog test-
ing - an indicator of how far the players have
come in conditioning throughout the sum-
mer.
Standing out in the weight room sessions
is incoming junior Jaime Juarez, who his
head coach, Jason Bond, says is the most im-
proved as far as conditioning is concerned.
Juarez, a offensive/defensive lineman for
the Terriers, said he's been pushing himself
harder all the way from where he was at
conditionally last year.
Suffice to say, in two key weightlifting ex-
ercises - the bench press and military press
- Juarez has improved by 30 and 35 pounds,
respectively.
This time last year, Juarez was lifting 275
lbs. on the bench, while putting up 165 lbs.
on the military press.
Now, he's at 305 lbs. on the bench and
200 lbs. on the military - all impressive feats
in itself.
"Lifting weights helps you in preventing
injuries and it makes you stronger," Juarez
said.
"I want to be a more aggressive lineman
and help my team make it the playoffs this
year."


Moore Haven, who this year will be a
Class 1B team (down from Class 1A), missed
the playoffs in 2008 after going 0-3 in District
6-1A play, with losses to Glades Day, Evan-
gelical Christian and St. John Neumann.
The Terriers finished with a 5-5 over-
all record after starting last season 4-0 and
making a brief appearance in the Associated
Press High School Class 1A poll.
But for Moore Haven to even think about
making in playoffs for the first time since
2003, the players may need to make a strong
showing in next week's Big Dog testing.
"We got a lot of good athletes on our
team," Juarez said.
"Before practice starts, I hope all my
teammates come to the Big Dog workouts
and get stronger and better."
In last year's Big Dog testing, a few re-
cords fell, which astonished the players and
coaching staff alike.
Here's a look at the Big Dog records set
last summer:
Military Press: Jaime Juarez - 165 lbs.
Power Clean: Jermaine Augustine and
Aaron Lopez- 205 lbs.
40-Yard Dash: Josh Patterson - 4.3 sec-
onds
400 Meter Run: Elazarus Blackmon - 54
seconds
20-Yard Backpedal Run: Josh Patter-
son and Keonte White - 3.4 seconds
Vertical Leap: Lascelle Humphrey - 28
inches
"I expect several of the records to be bro-
ken again next week," Bond said.
"Jaime Juarez, I think he'll break two or
three of our weightlifting records. He's been
here almost everyday, working himself really
hard to become a good lineman for us this
season."
Moore Haven players will be tested on


INI/Naji Tobias
Moore Haven incoming senior running back Fred Hall spotted his teammate,
Jaime Juarez, in the military press Monday evening. Juarez holds the Big Dog
team record in this exercise at 165 Ibs. - he's at 200 Ibs. now.


these exercise drills:
Bench press
Squat
Power clean
Military press
Vertical leap
20-yard backpedal
40-yard dash
400 meter run
The tests will likely be divided into two
segments, which include two field tests and
two lifting ones on Aug. 3 (Day 1).
That, of course, depends on how the
weather turns out.
If it rains, then all testing may convene
in Moore Haven's weight room facility that
day.
Day. 2 (Aug. 5) will cover the rest of the
Big Dog tests.
Notes: To become a member of the Big
Dog club, a players must score at least 80
points in the testing.
The maximum score anyone could get is
120 points, equivalent to 15 points for each
of the eight testing areas.
For example, to score the maximum
amount of 15 in the 40-yard dash, your time
must be recorded at 4.2 seconds.
The two testing days begin at 6 p.m. in
the Moore Haven High School weight room
facility.

Locks Reopened
Okeechobee, FL - The South Florida Wa-
ter Management District (SFWMD) opened the
navigation locks at J&S Fish Camp (S-135) and
Henry Creek (G-36) on the northern edge of Lake
Okeechobee.
The locks, which allow boaters to navigate
through the Herbert Hoover Dike into the lake,
were closed to boat traffic in order to maintain ca-
nal water levels during the recent record-breaking
dry season. Lake Okeechobee's elevation stood at
13.27 feet NGVD on July 15. The two locks will re-
main in the open position with no lock tender un-
til the lake elevation reaches 13.75 feet NGVD, at
which time normal operations with a lock tender
will resume on the following schedule: J&S Fish
Camp- (S-135), Henry Creek (G-36): 5:30 a.m. - 8
p.m. On the west shore, the S-131 navigation lock
at Lakeport resumed normal operations June 10
on the following schedule: Lakeport (S-131): 5:30
a.m. - 9 p.m.
Two other lake locks will remain closed. The
Taylor Creek structure (S-193) will remain closed
until the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completes
an. upgrade of the manatee protection system.
The Buckhead Ridge (S-127) will remain closed
until dredging work on the Pearce Canal and hy-
draulic repairs to the gate mechanism are com-
pleted and water levels remain optimum.

MD Okeechobee Service Center at 863-462-5260

IRS discusses key


Recovery A
WASHINGTON - With 2009 now half
over, the Internal Revenue Service reminds
taxpayers to take advantage of the numer-
ous tax breaks made available earlier this
year in the American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act (ARRA).
The recovery law provides tax incentives
for first-time homebuyers, people purchas-
ing new cars, those interested in making
their homes more energy efficient and par-
ents and students paying for college. But all
of these incentives have expiration dates so
taxpayers should take advantage of them
while they can.
First-Time Homebuyer Credit
The Recovery Act extended and expand
ed the first-time homebuyer tax credit for
2009.
Taxpayers who didn't own a principal
residence during the past three years and
purchase a home this year before Dec. 1
can receive a credit of up to $8,000 on either
an original or amended 2008 tax return, or
a 2009 return. But the purchase must close
before Dec. 1, 2009, and an eligible taxpayer
cannot claim the credit until after the closing
date. credit until after the closing date. This
credit phases out at higher income levels,
and different rules apply to home purchases
made in 2008.
New Vehicle Purchase Incentive
ARRA also provides a tax break to taxpay-
ers who make qualified new vehicle pur-
chases after Feb. 16, 2009, and before Jan.
1,2010.
Qualifying taxpayers can deduct the state
and local sales and excise taxes paid on the
purchase of new cars, light trucks, motor
homes and motorcycles. There is no limit
on the number of vehicles that may be pur-
chased, and you may claim the deduction
for taxes paid on multiple purchases. But the
deduction per vehicle is limited to the tax on
up to $49,500 of the purchase price of each
qualifying vehicle and phases out for taxpay-
ers at higher income levels. This deduction
is available regardless of whether a taxpayer
itemizes deductions on Schedule A.
Home Improvements
The Recovery Act also encourages hom-
eowners to make their homes more energy
efficient. The credit for nonbusiness energy
property is increased for homeowners who
make qualified energy-efficient improve-
ments to existing homes. The law increases
the rate to 30 percent of the cost of all qualify-
ing improvements and raises the maximum
credit limit to a total of $1,500 for improve-
ments placed in service in 2009 and 2010.
Qualifying improvements include the ad-
dition of insulation, energy-efficient exterior
windows and energy-efficient heating and
air conditioning systems.
Tax Credit for First Four Years
of College
The American opportunity credit is de-
signed to help parents andstudents pay part


ct Benefits

of the cost of the first four years of college,
The new credit modifies the existing Hop
credit for tax years 2009 and 2010, making
it available to a broader range of taxpayer
including many with higher incomes an
those who owe no tax. Tuition, related fee;
books and other required course material
generally qualify. Many of those eligible wi
qualify for the maximum annual credit
$2,500 per student.
Certain Computer Technolog,
Purchases Allowed
ARRA adds computer technology to th
list of college expenses (tuition, books, etc
that can be paid for by a qualified tuition prc
gram (QTP), commonly referred to as a 52
plan. For 2009 and 2010, the law expand
the definition of qualified higher education
expenses to include expenses for compute
technology and equipment or Internet a
cess and related services to be used by th
designated beneficiary of the QTP while er
rolled at an eligible educational institution
Software designed for sports, games or hot
bies does not qualify, unless it is predom
nantly educational in nature.
Making Work Pay
The Making Work Pay Credit lowered ta
withholding rates this year for 120 million
American households. However, particular
taxpayers who fall into any of the following
groups should review their tax withhold
ing rates to ensure enough tax is withheld(
including multiple job holders, families i
which both spouses work, workers wh
can be claimed as dependents by other
taxpayers and pensioners. Failure to adju.
your withholding could result in potential
smaller refunds or in limited instances ma
cause you to owe tax rather than receive
refund next year. So far in 2009, the average
refund amount is $2,675, and 79 percent c
all returns received a refund.

New Edison College campus to open August 15


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Higher education is no longer a luxury.
For many jobs these days, some type of
structured learning after high school is a ne-
cessity.
Edison State College has long been there
for students from LaBelle, Immokalee,
Clewiston, Glades County and even Belle
Glade, who either need a two-year degree
or want to earn a four-year degree close to
home.
Since EC first came to LaBelle, it has been
growing. Now it has outgrown its facility on
the LaBelle High School campus and is re-
locating to the old LaBelle Christian School,
further west on Cowboy Way.
The facility is well suited to Edison's
needs. The main building will house the
main office, along with five rooms and a
large office space.
Brooke Bruhn has been the Center Co-


ordinator of Student Services for two years.
She said the LaBelle campus currently serves
approximately 500 students. With registra-
tion for the 2009-10 term ongoing, she said
enrollment has already increased some 20
percent over last year at this time.
Currently, students must continue to reg-
ister at LaBelle High School till August 15
when the school will officially move to its
new facility on Cowboy Way. Classes start
August 24.
Entering the new facility's main entrance,
you will find a greeting area with offices to
the right.
The old church area on the west end of
the main building is being converted into a
student lounge - an area for students to con-
gregate and facilitate student cohesiveness.
In addition there will be two computer labs
and the peer and professional classrooms
off the lounge area.
The move will allow EC to expand in size


as well as its offerings. Look for additional
daytime and morning classes at the new
site.
Online courses are also very popular with
older and working students and EC offers
many AA classes on line. The facility has a
room for proctored tests.
The increase in enrollment may be
spurred by the slow economy, Ms. Bruhn
said, as well as the increase in financial aid
applications.
Overall, the new facility will provide 12
classrooms with space for seven staff mem-
bers and two full time faculty members
Amanda Pollitt: English and Janie Cudworth:
Math.


To the west of the main building, the
modular building will remain and will house
computer classrooms as well as general
classrooms. Computer classes are in high
demand and Ms. Bruhn said the LaBelle
campus offers a class in Microsoft Word
Suite every semester.
At the LaBelle facility, students can earn
general AA degrees, along with degrees in
business and education. Students may earn
AS degrees in business, early childhood
education and criminal justice at the LaBelle
campus.
, At this time, students in health-related
fields must travel to the Lee, Collier or Char-
lotte campus.

'A Walk in the Past': The Negro Fort


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Editor's Note: The following is Part 2 of a
two-part series.

Black populations, in some of the south-
ern states like South Carolina, were equal to
the state's white population.
Southern concerns grew as armed black
communities sprang up along Spanish Flori-
da's western panhandle.
Spanish Florida provided a haven for run-
away slaves and freedom for its established
black communities.
This policy encouraged black slaves to
flee from neighboring Georgia and other
nearby southern territories.
Runaway slaves escaping into Florida
grew at an alarming rate and eventually cre-
ated issues betweeri Spain and the United
States.
The threat in Spanish Florida escalated
in 1815, when the British abandoned their
fort at Prospect Bluff, which was located 15
miles upriver on the Apalachicola River in
west Florida.
The fort, including canons, powder and
muskets was given to their allies, the Indians
and blacks.
Later most of the Indians left the fort, but.
approximately 300 Blacks stayed on.
The fort came to be known as the Negro
Fort and drew hundreds of blacks to its pro-
tective walls.
Soon a black community with an estimat-
ed population of 1,000 sprang up around the
fort.
The fort was only 60 miles from Geor-
gia and seen. as a growing menace to-white
slaveholders because it housed an armed
black militia and provided a place of refuge
for runaway slaves.
Southern slaveholders saw it as a boiling
caldron of rebellion that would spread to the
slave territories in the South.
In 1816, due to slaveholder concerns, An-
drew Jackson approved the building of a fort
60 miles north of the Negro Fort.
It was constructed on the west bank of
the Flint River in Georgia and named Ft.
Scott.
The fort would serve as an observation
post for monitoring Indian and black activi-
ties in the vicinity of the Negro Fort.
In 1816, surveyors were sent out to start
surveying part of the ceded Indian lands.
Surveyors under General Edmund Gaines
were threatened by hostile acting Red Sticks,
so Jackson ordered Gaines to prepare for
military action along the Chattahoochee
River.
General Gaines encountered Creeks, who
told him they were too weak and poor to op-
pose him, so Gaines left them alone.
Colonel Duncan Clinch, the commander
of southern Georgia followed Gaines deci-
sion, until two of his men were killed and 30
head of cattle was stolen.
Colonel Clinch prepared for action and
requested permission to march along the
Flint River and destroy all Indian Villages.
Jackson and Gaines rejected his plans
and elected to strengthen Ft. Scott instead.
They reasoned that boats could bring
supplies out of New Orleans and travel up

A negro fort in Florida established by runaway slaves was attacked in 1816.


the Apalachicola River to Fort Scott.-
Their reasoning was politically and mili-
tarily sound because the supply boats had
to conveniently pass the Negro Fort, while
traveling to Fort Scott.
In 1816, a convoy of two gunboats and
two schooners approached the fort from
the mouth of the Apalachicola River, while
a force of friendly Creeks and regulars un-
der Colonel Clinch moved in from the north.
General Gaines gave the order for the crews
aboard the boats to fire upon the Negro Fort,
if they fired first.
The convoy met Colonel Clinchat the
Negro Fort.
The men in the fort fired their cannons
at the convoy and troops because they saw
'both parties as threatening.
Their cannons were poorly built, and
they failed to hit a single boat.
The Americans returned fire at the fort
and a "hot shot" (a cannon ball heated to
a cherry red) fired at the Negro Fort, struck
the powder magazine where all the kegs of
powder were stored.
The explosion leveled the fort and killed
approximately 300 blacks in the fort.
Supposedly, the explosion was so great
that it was heard in Pensacola, a hundred
miles away.
The carnage in the fort was terrible.
Witnesses said the limbs'of men, wom-
en and children were scattered to the four


winds.
The men who survived the explosion
were captured and sold in Georgia-to slave
owners.
The Spanish government made an offi-
cial complaint to American authorities, de-
claring that Jackson and Gaines had invaded
a sovereign nation's territories in an act of
war.
The complaint lacked the muscles of
Spain's old ally, the British and went un-
heard

Overcoming childhood obesity in Hendry County's children


Caloosa Belle'Dale S. Conyers
Exercise such as playing on a playground like Scotty and KatieLynn Conyers
are doing is important for a child's health.


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Beginning with those born in the year
2000, children will have a lower life expec-
tancy than their parents.
Let me repeat that.
Beginning with those about nine years
old right now, children can expect to die
before they reach the age at which their par-
ents probably will.
That's a very scary statistic, and much
of that concern is caused by the increase in
childhood obesity.
Nationally, the percentage of young peo-
ple who are obese approximately tripled
since 1980.-
In the 1970s some 6 percent of American
youth were considered overweight; now
that figure is at 19 percent.
Of children born in the year 2000, one in
three will develop Type II diabetes early. This
used to be known as adult onset diabetes.
In Florida 12.2 percent of children are
either considered obese or at risk - with a
body mass index (a statistical measurement
which compares a person's weight and
height) at the 95th percentile or above).
Even closer to home, Hendry County is
ranked sixth in the state in the number of
obese children. Glades County is #4.
In Hendry County, 12.7 percent of middle
schoolers are considered obese or at risk of
obesity.
For Glades County that figure is 19.16 per-
cent.
Among high schoolers, 17.8 percent in
Hendry and 19.1 in Glades are classified as
obese or at risk of obesity.
For the state, those figures are at 11.3 per-
cent of middle schoolers and 11.2 percent-of
high schoolers.
Considering that being overweight is a
very good indicator of serious problems to
come, it's clear that young people in Hendry
and Glades are in big health trouble.
Sixty percent of overweight kids have
at least one risk factor for cardiovascular
disease; 25 percent have two risk factors
(including high blood pressure, high cho-
lesterol, breathing problems, back, hip and
knee problems, even depression and low
self esteem.


Of children born in the year 2000, one in
three will develop Type II diabetes early.
This used to be known as adult onset dia-
betes.

ner for 12 years and nurse since 1990, is very
concerned about these trends.
She sees Hendry County as a microcosm
of youth health problems.
She feels that, being a small county lim-
its the resources and funding available and
makes it even more important that we use
the county's strong points to our advantage.
She feels the small, cohesive community
and-intimate school system are bonuses.
Parents are key in helping children de-
velop good eating and living habits, she
said, it is up to.parents to teach a physical
education "program" at home, focusing on
healthy behavior.
Poor eating habits and lack of exercise
are the main causes of obesity - not genet-
ics.
People just don't eat properly any more.
In the 1980s, 80 percent of high school
kids ate green veggies daily; now that figure
has dropped to 30 percent.
Kids also drink less milk, but more juice,
soda and other "sugar water" beverages.
They eat more fast food.
One comparison shows fast food to have
770 calories per meal as opposed to 420 cal-
ories for the average meal at home.
A sedentary lifestyle keeps people from
burning up all those calories.
For instance, kids spend some 44.5 hours
per week outside of school watching TV, us-
ing the computer, etc., instead of engaging
in calorie burning exercise.
One in four students gets no physical ac-
tivity.
Schools are working on ways to deal with
this weight crisis.
From K-3 there has been a dramatic in-
crease in weight at West Glades School,
similar to other schools.
A parent focus group there tracked ex-
cuses for children who were not getting
enough exercise and not eating well.
They boil down to: no time and cost.
The group worked on implementing


ideas to help parents lower food expenses
and add more physical activities.
One idea is to focus on what kids drink
in order to lower calorie intake from sugar
water.
Area elementaries partner with the health
department in the Fresh2U program, which
focuses on getting youngsters to try new
fruits and vegetables.
Finding out that unfamiliar foods can ac-
tually taste good as well as be good for you
can help lead to a lifetime of better eating
habits.
Food Service Director James Sealey said
schools share the responsibility of making
sure kids build good eating habits with par-
ents and guardians.
"We do our very best," he said, to ensure
that students get healthy meals at school.
Schools are required to meet National
School Lunch Program guidelines which
have, in recent years, become even more
health conscious. Schools no longer fry
anything - oven baking is the standard - and
also use more whole grains, fresh fruit and
healthy alternatives.
Students are also provided with more
choices in the lunch line, especially at the
high school level where kids will often go
without eating rather than eat something
they don't like.
Schools only serve one percent milk and
make sure a healthy breakfast is available
for all students on campus before school
begins.
Vending machines are loaded only with


drinks and healthy snacks.


Exercise
According to the Florida Department of
!Health 2007 statistics, at middle school age,
37.7 percent don't get enough exercise; 42.8
percent of high schoolers are also seden-
tary.
Second-year Coach Tyson Frantz at Coun-
try Oaks Elementary said the law requires
150 minutes of physical activity per week.
At COES they also include organized recess
activities.
Most elementary schools participate in
the Presidential fitness program which ex-
poses kids to different sports so each may
find their favorite and learn to maintain it for
a lifetime.
Former LaBelle Elementary School nurse
Michelle Kelley has seen hundreds of chil-
dren over the past 14 years.
Unfortunately, PE classes have felt the
budget pinch in recent years, but Ms. Kel-
ley travelled to a conference in Arkansas last
July where LES received a bronze award for
improving its 2007 goals.
The school also used money from Nickel-
odeon to purchase a climbing wall. She said
TV, computers and high calorie snacks are
taking a toll on children's health.
LES students have a booklet to rate eating
habits and staff is reaching out to parents to
help them become more responsible in en-
forcing good eating habits.

For the love of summer roses, how to care for flowers


By Barbara Oehlbeck
In the last twenty years growing roses in
Florida has escalated almost beyond belief!
When looking for roses, particularly in
discount stores, be careful to be sure there
are at least three master basal canes grow-
ing from the main trunk. And if the plant is
even slightly yellow and black, don't buy it.
This simply means that you'll be buying a
black-spot rose that can easily infect your en-
tire garden....even a big one. In other words,
look carefully enough to determine that it's
a strong, healthy plant. After all, it'll take just
as much time, effort and supplies to plant
an inferior bush as a superior one. And, if
you have a choice of rootstock, fortuniana
is best for Florida. Old garden or Antique
Roses grow on their own roots so these
two are not comparable. Fortuniana root-
stock roses are likely to be in bloom when
you buy them, while the Antiques seldom
are. However, the Antiques are well worth
waiting for. Besides, these are the roses that
will continue to grow bigger and better for
many, many years.
Summer roses in Florida are nothing
less than grand. Some of the cardinal rules
for happy rose-growing include: planting
in a location where they'll get A minimum
of six hours direct sun, preferably morning
sun. There are those who say...sun is sun,
so what difference does it make if it's morn-
ing or afternoon sun. Well, it makes a lot of
difference which is just this: when a rose
is planted in morning shade, then the sun
moves to afternoon and suddenly the rose
is blasted with typical hot Florida sun. Sim-
ply put, generally it's too much for the rose.
Whereas when planted in morning sun, and
then gradually gets shade in the afternoon,
or even partial shade, that's ideal. Potted
roses can be planted any time... any month
of the year.
Roses are purely sun-loving. Some variet-
ies will tolerate more shade than others. My
personal experience is that many Old Gar-
den Roses, also known as Antique Roses,
or Roses of Yesterday are much more likely
to grow and bloom well in partial shade. In
our own garden a few of those include Old
Blush, Cadenza, and the magnificent white
climber, Prosperity. La Marne also takes to
some shade very well, as does Louis Philippe
and Mrs. B. R. Cant. Belinda is nothing short
of magnificent, and not to be confused with
Belinda's Dream which is equally mag-
nificent! In color Belinda is hot pink with
a white eye in each small blossom. Excel-
lent for hedging, it's a stunning climber and
is known for being, quite tolerant of partial
shade. Both Belinda and Belinda's Dream
bloom in massive clusters as well as singly.
I have personally found that it's not worth
it for me to try to "make" roses do well in
shade. Being by nature sun-loving, it just
makes good garden sense to give them what
they need to be a source of beauty and joy
to you.
A few years ago I never thought I'd be
saying let alone writing this regarding spray-
ing roses. However, after three to four years
of NOT spraying our roses (for insects or dis-
eases),' not even once, I'm a true believer.
If you're careful in selecting roses, that is to
buy the ones that are disease resistant, and
to plant them far enough apart that they


don't touch each other. Feeding and wa-
tering roses is extremely important. Before
fertilizing your roses, soak them with water,
then spread the fertilizer around the bush
at least 6 to 8 inches from the trunk. Then
thoroughly water again! This may sound like
"too much sugar for a cent" but it will pay
off. Also, to boost the results of fertilizing
(there's nothing better than Millorganite)
and Epsom Salts. Sprinkle about a half cup
around each plant and thoroughly water.
If you find you're unable to thoroughly
water your roses after applications of fertiliz-
er, if's better not to fertilize until.you do have
time to do the watering they must have to
produce a multitude of blooms, or wait for a
good downpour from Mother Nature...
Florida is naturally endowed with good
porosity soil .... that is, mostly sand which
must be amended with peat moss, cow ma-
nure (horse or sheep is fine) and shovel full
of fine mulch for aeration. Dig the hole half
again as deep and wide as the pot in which
you bought it. In lifting the plant from the
pot be careful not to break up the root ball
which generally exposes feeder roots, and
always respect the soil level in the pot. Fill
in the mixed soil (existing sandy soil, peat
moss, cow manure and compost - about
one-fourth each), alternating shovels of the
mixture with water. Firm the root ball in the
hole-but DO NOT PACK. Water every day,
when there's no rain, for about two weeks.
By this time you'll be seeing tiny new-green
sprouting and pretty soon here will comes
buds and blooms!
Another point that's often overlooked:
Make a dedicated effort to keep all spent
blooms cut off. If these seedpods are al-
lowed to stay on the plant thel \\ill "retard"
the growth and production of new buds
and blooms simply because they will usurp
nutrients from the bush thus slowing down
re-blooming process. And besides, the bush
will grow straggly with spindly branches and
very few buds and blooms.
As stated earlier we do not spray our
roses any more, and we have yet to lose
one bush due to disease or insects. We
water more than we used to and we apply
heavy applications of mulch with compost
mixed in. These ingredients gradually feed
the roses day and night. Roses are by nature
hungry plants. So when roses get ample
food and water, they naturally grow into
healthy bushes, and healthy bushes are al-
most immune to diseases and insects. This
does not imply that our roses never have
an occasional black spot leaf or insects of
one type or another but these are minimal
and minor. Beautiful roses do not bloom on
unhealthy bushes. Therefore it makes good
common sense to grow healthy roses that
will produce masses of blooms bringing joy
and beauty in Florida summers.
CUT ROSES: There are those who say
that roses should be cut in early evening for
longevity as a cut flower. This has not been
my experience - ever. When cut in the eve-
ning, roses have already been through a day
of sun and wind. Thus they've already been
subjected to the elements that can rob them
of their stamina. If and when you have no
choice as to cut in morning or early eve-
ning, be sure to plunge each stem in very
warm water immediately. In other words,


take a container with the very warm water
to the garden. Of course, take off the first
three or four leaf clusters. If time will allow,
then place the container in the refrigerator
until the water is the same temperature as
it is inside the frigg. You may be delightfully
surprised how this will refresh the roses and
add to their vase-life.
Roses cut in early morning have last-
ed for us up to a full week when they're
plunged into warm water, refrigerated, and
arranged later. (Naturallysome varieties last
longer than others. Don Juan, for instance,
is a week-long rose when cut as a bud and
treated thusly. And there are others that last


just as long.)

lowing books are highly recommended. THE

Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity
in the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals
This is to give notice that Glades County has conducted an evaluation as
required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD
regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that its ac-
tivity in the floodplain and wetland will have on the environment.
Glades County Intends to undertake a project to be funded by a Florida
Small Cities Community Development Block Grant. The proposed project is
to demolish and construct replacement housing for up to one(1) housing
units located by low-moderate Income eligible homeowners. The address
for this is403 Pinecrest Avenue NW, Moore Haven Florida 33471.
It has determined that it has no practicable alternative other than to pro-
ceed with the work. This activity will have no significant impact on the en-
vironment for the following reasons:
The housing unit is already located within the 100-year floodplain. This
home will be demolished and a new replacement housing unit constructed
at the same address.
Although the project is located in the 100 year floodplain, the improve-
ments cannot be undertaken in any other location due to the scope of the
project. There is, therefore, no practicable alternative.
he proposed improvements conform to applicable floodplain protection
standards. The proposed action will not affect natural or beneficial flood-
plain values, and residents of the community will benefit from the project.
Additional agencies involved in this project include the Florida Department
of Community Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment.
Written comments must be received by Glades County at the following ad-
dress on or before August 11, 2009, Glades County, PO Box 1018, Moore
Haven, FL 3371-1018 Attn: Erica Villafuerte, Glades County S.H.I.P. Admin-

2009 Climate Change bill



provides for wildlife and habitats


The simple things we all do
together that can make a
big difference for our future.


By Patricia Behnke
Amid all the media attention on health
care reform, economic recovery and the
first-moonwalk anniversary, a bill made its
way through the U.S. House of Representa-
tives this summer.
It may be just one piece of legislation, but
it is one gigantic leap for the environment
and wildlife.
The American Clean Energy and Security
Act of 2009 contains one section particularly
important to wildlife - Natural Resource Ad-
aptation.
It sets a policy "to protect, restore and
conserve natural resources to enable them
to become more resilient, adapt to, and,
withstand the impacts of climate change
and ocean acidification."
This is a wise course. Federal dollars
will help state agencies and others "on the
ground" implement the act - to make the
kinds of lasting impacts that will ensure our
wildlife adapts and is resilient to these pro-
jected changes.
Jackie Fauls, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's (FWC) director
of Legislative Affairs, says the money should
be there to help Florida's managers of wild-
life.
"The bill includes language that will help
fish, wildlife and natural resources adapt in
a warming world," Fauls said.-
"It provides 1 percent of revenues from a
cap-and-trade system that will go to domes-


tic natural resource adaptation, beginning
in 2012, and will increase in allocation to 4
percent beginning in 2027."
The adaptation component for wildlife is
crucial because the experts agree that fish
and wildlife will have to adapt to rising sea
levels and warming temperatures, or they
will not survive.
It is up to the wildlife managers - in Flor-
ida state government, that's -the FWC - to
help them adapt and remain resilient.
"Functioning ecosystems are critical to
the future of life on this planet," said Matt
Hogan, executive director of the Association
of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
"They provide a wide range of life-sus-
taining services in the form of clean water,
clear air, and other benefits that determine
the quality of human life. Ecosystems can
significantly capture carbon and sustain fish
and wildlife, which provide billions of dol-
lars in direct economic benefits."
The FWC has made adaptation of wildlife
a priority by forming first a Climate Change
Team and then an adaptation group that
is already at work designing, planning and
creating strategies that will manage fish and
wildlife in Florida for the challenges ahead.
The climate change bill has the potential
to help agencies, such as the FWC, imple-
ment these management strategies to ensure
no species goes extinct as climate change
becomes more and more real.
"Climate change is a complicated is-
sue," said Terry Doonan, co-chairman of the
FWC's Adaptation Working Group.
"We have some understanding of the im-
pacts of climate change, but we have much
to learn about the specific impacts and how
they change from one part of the state to an-
other. The more we understand, the better


we'll be at ensuring we do the best job pos-
sible of managing and conserving Florida's
diverse fish and wildlife species."
While the politicians debate the virtues
of the bill - which could go to a vote in the
Senate sometime in the fall - and the wild-
life managers plan strategies, individuals can
lower greenhouse gas emissions, too.
The National Wildlife Federation asks us
to do our part by taking the Good Neighbor
Pledge found on its Web site at http://online.
nwf.org.
I took the pledge today.
By promising such things as replacing five
incandescent light bulbs with compact fluo-
rescent light bulbs; turning off lights when
not using them; turning off my PC, monitor
and printer when not in use; unplugging
electronic devices (or putting on a power
strip that is turned off); setting the thermo-
stat two degrees lower or higher, depending
on the season; using the air-dry setting on
my dishwasher; and driving the speed limit,
I passed the test to be a Good Neighbor.
I even have a certificate to prove it, al-
though I decided to save the ink and paper
and not print it out.
It is the simple things we all do together
that can make a big difference for our fu-
ture.
At the federal, state or individual level, all
of us can do our best to ensure the forecast
for fish and wildlife remains resilient and
hopeful.

Beneficial Advice
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
As a pastor, I receive a lot of sometimes
informative information which just calls out
to be shared.
For instance, someone has collected a
list of Fatal Things to Say to Your Pregnant
Wife which I -feel compelled to share with
my brethren.
Following are seven fatal things to say to
your wife when she is pregnant.
#7: "I finished the Oreos."
#6 "Y'know, looking at her, you'd never
guess that Pamela Lee had a baby!"
#5: "Well, could they induce labor? The
25th is the Super Bowl."
#4 "Whoa! For a minute there, I thought
I woke up next to Willard Scott!"
#3: "I'm jealous! Why can't men experi-
ence the joy of childbirth?"
#2: "Are your ankles supposed to look
like that?" and the #1 Fatal Thing to Say to
Your Pregnant Wife:
"You don't have the guts to pull the trig-
ger."
And then there is the question, "Is the
glass half full, or half empty?"
It depends on whether you're pouring, or
drinking.
Other words of wisdom: Always keep
your words soft and sweet, just inr case you
have to eat them, and always read stuff that
will make you look good if you die in the
middle of it.
Imagine having to wash a cat. I had to
once, and it was an experience!
Years later, I received the following in-
structions on how to do it properly: Dear P.J.
To bathe the cat:
1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add
1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the
bowl.
2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while
you carry him towards the bathroom.
3. In one smooth movement, put the cat
in the toilet and close both lids. Following
this activity, you may need to stand on the
lid.
4. The cat will self-agitate and make am-
ple suds. Never mind the noises that come
from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying
this.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times.
This provides both the "Power Wash" and
"Rinse."
6. Have someone open the front door
of your home. Make sure that there are no
people between the bathroom and the front
door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you
can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The cat will now rocket out of the toi-
let, streak through the bathroom, and run
outside where he will dry himself off, cat-
fashion.
9. Both the commode and the cat will be
sparkling clean. "Hope this helps!" Sincerely,
Rover.
"Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
the man who gains understanding, for it is
more profitable than silver and yields better
returns than gold. It is more precious than
rubies; nothing, you desire can compare
with it." Proverbs 3:13-15.


Obama vs. Jefferson
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
A few weeks ago in this column I pointed
out how that the philosophies of the Obama
Administration were completely contrary to
the philosophies of Presidents Washington
and Lincoln.
This week. I would like to point out the
contrasting philosophies of President Thom-
as Jefferson and Obama.
President John F. Kennedy once said to
an assembled group of scholars in the White
House. "I think this is the most extraordinary
collection of talent, of human knowledge,
that has even been gathered at the White
House - with the exception of when Thomas
Jefferson dined alone."
So here are some quotes from Jefferson
the writer of "The Declaration of Indepen-
dence."'
"The democracy will cease to exist when
.you take away from those who are willing to
work and give to those who would not."
"It is incumbent on every generation
to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle
which if acted on would save one-half the
wars of the world."
"I predict future happiness for Americans
if they can prevent government Trom wast-
ing the labors of the people under the pre-
tense of taking care of them."
"My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too
much government."
"No free man shall ever be debarred the
use of arms."
"The strongest reason for the people to
retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as
a last resort, to protect themselves against
tyranny in government."
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed
from time to time with the blood of patriots
and tyrants."
In light of the present financial crisis, it's
interesting to read what Jefferson said in
1802.
"Banking institutions are more danger-
ous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the Americar people ever allow private
banks to control the issue of currency, first
by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and
corporations that will grow up around the
banks will deprive the people of all property
until their children wake-up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered."
Doesn't that sound eerily familiar to what
is happening in America today?

An imaginary dialogue - not
falling for the Devil's line
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
One of the presenters at a recent confer-
ence I attended pointed out the value of do-
ing your own research.
As human beings, the majority of what
we learn comes from what we hear, usually
what others report as "facts' or "true.'
He cited someone who claimed that 89%
of the people believed a certain way.
He went to the source of the "fact" that


was quoted and found they had gotten it
from another source.
He checked that source, which led to an-
other source.
That source led him to the author of the
number who really hadn't done any research
at all, and "in his opinion....
What came presented as solid informa-
tion was really rooted in opinionated sourc-


check it out and see what He has to say.
Maybe He has another reason!"
The devil would have left in disgust;
maybe we.would have avoided a lot of prob-
lems! .

money is going to come from, or just how
we're going to resolve an issue with some-

Shooting

Trauma Hawk, was pronounced dead on
arrival.
Frederick Cobia, 37, of Orlando and a
17-year-old, of South Bay, were both ques-
tioned by authorities in relation to the fatal-
ity.
It was later revealed that the Palm Beach
County Violent Crimes Task Force arrested
Cobia and charged him in the murder.
The apprehended suspect was in court
for his first appearance on the morning of
July 23.
Blood on the door
A juvenile eyewitness reportedly saw two
men at about 1 p.m. that day.
According to a PBSO probable cause af-
fidavit, the unidentified juvenile spoke with
T-Page, the nickname of the 17-year-old im-
plicated in the shooting.
"Where the Jamaican man stay at?" the
17-year-old reportedly asked the juvenile
witness.
W The juvenile witness, according to detec-
tives, told the 17-year-old the victim lived
next door to his residence.
About 30 minutes later, according to the
affidavit, the witness heard the gate in front
of his house slam.
The witness, who then walked outside
and stood on his patio, listening to what was
going on next door, according to the report.
After hearing the murder suspect punch-

already being worked on.
The project, which is reportedly funded
by Countywide Community Revitalization-
Team (CCRT), will be constructed along
Everglades Drive with a low pressure collec-
tion system and a host of grinder pump sta-
tions, she said.
The dimensions of the sewer project, ac-
cording to Sharps, is set to be approximately
4,550 feet of an eight-inch Force Main and
1,400 feet of a six-inch main.
The grinder pump station sizes, Sharps
said, were modified by the Palm Beach
County Health Department.


ing and slapping the victim, the 17-year-old
reportedly told the juvenile to go back in
his house 'because that man (the victim) is
crazy.'
The juvenile then reportedly watched the
incident from his window, observing that
the 17-year-old asked the suspect if he wants
him to 'go get the car.'
A harrowing exchange of words between
the murder suspect and victim followed
shortly thereafter.
Cobia (several times to the victim):
"Shut up before I pull this trigger."
Dunkley to suspect, the suspect:
"Please don't."
The unidentified juvenile witness told au-
thorities he then heard some more slapping,
followed by the suspect telling the victim to
'get on the ground,' as the victim was report-
edly 'begging and crying'.
Almost immediately afterward, the sus-
pect reportedly fired two gunshots with his
high point .40 caliber, leaving the bloody vic-
tim near the front door, flat on his back.
Subsequently, according to the PBSO
police report, the suspect (Cobia) was ob-
served by the witness to run into the front of
the victim's residence, holding a blue cooler,
which was found to have an unspecified
amount of marijuana in it.
Holding the blue cooler, the suspect was
reportedly seen running into the backyard
and jumping over the fence in an attempt to
escape.
But the suspect apparently did not know
what would happen next.
Quick response


The project completion is reportedly
scheduled for August 16.
"The community understands that with-
out this project, there can be no economic
development," said Houston Tate, who's the
county's Office of Community Revitalization
(OCR) director.
"The impact of this project will reinforce
a positive image and will begin to encour-
age an investment climate essential to create
new standards to retain and expand existing
businesses and to attract new businesses to
the area."
Officials from the City of Pahokee, along
with county representatives, were on hand
to celebrate the progress of this all-impor-
tant project.
"The community is thrilled that these ef-
forts will grow confidence and community


PBSO Lieutenant Rob Sandt contacted
his road patrol deputies as they 'set the pe-
rimeter' in efforts to apprehend the shooter.
At least two deputies were reportedly
at the Valero gas station parking lot at the
time.
A witness, who was speaking with those
deputies, was able to spot the fleeing mur-
der suspect immediately after the incident.
The suspect was reportedly observed
with his clothing drenched in blood, carry-
ing the blue cooler.
"There he is," the unidentified witness
reportedly told deputies.
As the murder suspect ran southbound in
his attempt to elude deputies, he reportedly
scaled a fence in the back yard of 170 N. W
7th St.
The suspect was observed by PBSO dep-
uties crouching down along the aforemen-
tioned residence, attempting to hide there.
The murder suspect was reportedly
caught by deputies as they went into the
bushes and ordered him to the ground, plac-
ing the alleged killer under arrest.
"The suspect fled out the scene and just
ran right into our guys," Sandt said of the
capture.
"He told my deputies that he was a vic-
tim, he didn't want to get arrested."
Detectives discovered the .40 caliber gun
used in the shooting to be 'filled with blood'
as well.
Meanwhile, Sandt and at least two other
officers reportedly entered the victim's resi-
dence in attempts to locate any other sus-
pects or victims.
The victim was actually found covered

change," Tate said in his speech at the func-
tion.
Harrington couldn't agree more with
Tate's assessment.
"It's the beginning of great things to come
in Canal Point," Harrington said.

with blood on his living room floor, lying on
his back.
The victim's hands were reportedly tied
behind his back.
"I've been shot," the \iclim criel'out to
deputies, according to the affitdavit.
PBSO officers later contact paramedics
from the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue,
who attempted to treat the victim.
Units from District 13 (Belle Glade), Dis-
trict 12 (Pahokee), District 5 (Glades) and the
K-9 group assisted in the suspect's capture.
"If it wasn't for the quick response from
all the deputies, then the suspect may have
been able to escape," said Larry Easton, the
PBSO District 5 captain/commander.
"Everybody worked well as a team and
we were able to apprehend the suspect be-
fore he got too far."
Sandt extended his thanks to the South
Bay community for their assistance in this
case.
"A lot of the information we received ac-
tually came from the citizens," Sandt said.
"From Captain Easton and myself, we're
grateful to have the backing and support
from the city officials and the public."
The suspect was charged with first degree
murder, home invasion robbery, kidnapping
and possession of a firearm by a convicted
felon.
If convicted of all these charges, he could
face either life in prison or the death penalty,
according to the Fla. State Statutes.
