Men Die in


North Fla.



Wreck

Driver loses control of
vehicle on trip

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
John Presley Cohick, 22, and Edward Lewis
Pope, 21, died last weekend in a wreck in Co-
lumbia County, near the Georgia-Florida line,
reported the Florida Highway Patrol.
The accident happened Saturday, June 25
at approximately 9:20 p.m. Cohick was from
Belle Glade. Pope was from Pahokee.
According to Trooper J.R. Tillie, the vehicle
the two men were driving in, a 2008 Ford F 150,
was traveling west on U.S. 90, west of Brown
Road, when for unknown reasons the truck
traveled off the roadway and into the grassy
right of way.
Investigators believe that the driver, Cohick,
was unable to maintain control of the truck,
which started to rotate in a clockwise direction
when it met the grass. The tires on the truck
started to gather dirt in front of them as it slid,
which "caused a tripping action" that sent the
vehicle airborne.
The truck then struck a pine tree with its left
front door, before coming to a full stop.
Columbia County EMS Paramedics re-
sponded to the scene, but were unable to help
either of the men. Both were pronounced de-
ceased at the scene of the crash by the Jack
sonville Medical Examiner.
Not available in the report is whether or not
the two men were wearing their seat belts at
the time of the crash.

Leadership Beyond Sports Awards Highlights

Anquan Boldin, Louis James Butts and the late Daniel Bythwood selected as honorees


BY NAJI TOBIAS
The Sun
Sometimes, good things can come in threes.
That seemed to be the case at the June 23
Leadership Beyond Sports Awards, presented by
Three Brothers Who Care.
Held at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center,
the inaugural awards ceremony placed its focus
on community service through sports and how
the Glades area has been impacted by them in a
positive manner.
Baltimore Ravens wideout and Pahokee na-


tive Anquan Boldin, Belle Glade pioneer Louis
James Butts and the late Daniel Bythwood were
selected as this year's Leadership Beyond Sports
honorees.
In accordance with the awards ceremony's
initiative, they represent three generations of
area sports figures who have been instrumental
in the lives of many individuals from the Glades
area and beyond.
"As we all know, sports are very popular topic
in the Glades," Three Brothers Who Care co-
founder/master of ceremonies Jermaine Webb
said to the award ceremony's attendees. "When


people talk about the ones who have given back
to our community, the names Anquan Boldin,
Louis James Butts and Daniel Bythwood often
come up. We want to give them their flowers
while they're living and show how much we ap-
preciate them."
Following a quiet moment of reflection a
gospel dance sequence by Joshua Brown and a
slideshow presentation of the late Daniel Byth-
wood were shown.

Silver Alert



Bill Signed

Governor Rick Scott signed into law the
Florida Silver Alert Plan, which helps protect
Florida's vulnerable senior citizens. Silver Alerts
assist local law enforcement in the rescue of a
missing elderly person with a cognitive impair-
ment. The alerts broadcast important informa-
tion via the media and highway message signs
to enlist citizens in the search for an endan-
gered senior.
Since 2008, 44 seniors have been recovered
directly due to activated Silver Alerts, out of a
total of 321 alerts.
According to the Alzheimer's Association,
more than 60 percent of those with Alzheimer's
will wander and become lost at some point.
While most who wander do so on foot and
are ultimately found within a few miles, those
who become lost while driving a vehicle may
wander much further from home, underscor-
ing the importance of Silver Alerts.
Citizens can sign up to receive free Silver
Alert e-mail messages at www.elderaffairs.

Snake Predator May


Benefit Endangered Bird


UF study finds benefit for
bird

BY ROBERT WELLS
Univ. of Florida
An endangered Florida bird may have some
unexpected help in its struggle for survival, ac-
cording to a new University of Florida study.
UF Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences
researchers found that rat snakes, once thought
to threaten the endangered, red-cockaded wood-
pecker, actually benefit the birds. The study is
published in the current issue of the hi, i .
journal The Condor.
The findings could help landowners, conser
vationists and those enrolled in programs such
as Safe Harbor, which allows those with endan-
gered species on their land to harvest timber if
they agree to help promote the species' recovery.
Forestry and forest products contributed more
than $4.4 billion to Florida's economy in 2008.
Red-cockaded woodpeckers are small, black
and-white birds, about 8.5 inches long, that live
in longleaf pine forests and are named for the red
spot on the male bird's head.
Katie Sieving, a wildlife ecology and conser-
vation professor, and co-author John Kappes, a
former doctoral student in the department, found
that rat snakes help the birds by eating species
that commonly steal red-cockaded woodpecker
nest cavities.
Red-cockaded woodpeckers nest in cavi-
ties they create in living pine trees and naturally
protect themselves from rat snakes by pecking
around the cavity and causing sap to flow.
"Any snake that climbs the tree gets sap stuck
under its scales and, more often than not, will fall
out of the tree before being able to eat the red-
cockaded woodpeckers," Sieving said.
Since, ir, l.r1. - ,. such as red-bellied wood-
peckers, don't maintain the sap flow, they are eas-
ily disposed of by rat snakes, and red-cockaded
woodpeckers can return to their nests.
"It is counterintuitive that a principal predator
of a particular species can also indirectly benefit
that species," Kappes said. "But if it eats its en-
emies at higher rates than it eats the particular
focal species, then it can. This pattern has been
seen repeatedly in ecological communities, and
now we have found evidence of such complex
interactions in the red-cockaded woodpecker
cavity system."

vision. Tree cavities were monitored regularly for
signs of nesting and predation.
Despite steadily increasing red-cockaded
woodpecker numbers, there are still fewer than
4,000 of the birds in Florida. At one time the spe-
cies numbered in the millions across the U.S., but
significant habitat reduction caused their decline.
Preserving red-cockaded woodpeckers is im-
portant because their preservation also requires
protecting their surroundings, Kappes said.
"It has some pretty demanding requirements
for relatively old forests and relatively extensive
amounts of it to maintain a population," Kappes
said. "If we maintain red-cockaded woodpecker
populations that are viable, then we are going to
be maintaining chunks of this ecosystem that are
also viable."

Divine Revelations From
Those Who Come Recently
From God
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
One night while eating at a local restaurant,
a toddler in a booth nearby told his parents "I
wanna box!" He said it several times, apparently
watching others get to-go boxes or perhaps re-
membering you could get food to take home.
It reminded me of an incident with my daugh-
ter during her toddler years. We were at a res-
taurant with her in a high-chair and a couple
entered, putting their slightly-younger baby in a
high chair.
My daughter said to me "Daddy, I want to take
that baby home!" The other couple looked; an
expression I judged to be somewhere between
"Don't even think about it!" and casual amuse-
ment.
I asked my daughter "What would you do
with the baby when you got it home?" and she
answered "I'd feed it." Being a philosopher, I con-
templated that I had a young mother on my hands.
Long before being capable of totally feeding her-
self, she is thinking about "babies" and "feeding
them." That's what she did with her dolls.
She also watched as we fed her goldfish and,
later, her cat. Here in the midst of child develop-
ment is recognition of a basic human need and
the call to satisfy it for those who may be a bit
more helpless.
The little boy who wanted his to-go box was
more self sufficient even if he seemed to be about
the same age as I remembered my daughter's
comments.
Maybe stocking up, maybe not wanting a
good meal to come to an end, maybe a reminder
to the adults to get something for later when the
munchies set in, who knows; but there he was
in all of his two feet in height proclaiming to the
world that food is important.
It is no accident that the Lord took food,
blessed it, shared it, gave it to His followers and
told them that the sacred meal will bring Him
among them each time they celebrate it. This was
a central act in His earthly ministry(Luke 22: 1ff);
taking, blessing, breaking, sharing; and with it the
cup that followed.
People are of the earthy, earthy, and in need of
sustenance for their very survival; the Lord giving
a new meaning to the sacred meal of the Pass-
over always celebrated by the faithful of His day,
and His followers coming to know of His pres-


ence in that breaking of bread thereafter.
How many times have I heard people say
"We're good friends, I've had them over for din-
ner lots of times!" when the bonds of the meal are
reflective of much more than just eating together.
One of the great miracles that I've observed is
how God always takes the ordinary and gives it
new direction, new meaning, new purpose, new
life.
A great thing about what God has revealed is
His use of what is everyday to us, earthly, mun-
dane, common. There He is in the midst of it all;
may we never cease to see Him in all that we say,
do, share, celebrate.

Firework Christianity
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First united Methodist Church
The Fourth of July and fireworks go hand in
hand in the United States. We impatiently wait
for darkness to settle in, as we join the crowds at
the city park or the riverfront. Soon, our waiting
pays off as a small streak of light hisses upwards,
and the sky is filled with an explosions, colorful
sparkles and lovely designs.
Did you know that there is approximately the
same amount of gunpowder in a firecracker as
in a rifle shell? The firecracker's explosion power
is unfocused, and makes a loud noise. The rifle
shell, on the other hand, focuses that power in
a specific direction and delivers an enormous
punch. One makes a lot of noise. The other gets
results. It's a matter of focus. It's a matter of
what's needed or what's desired.
We can be a firecracker Christian or a rifle shot
Christian. One makes a lot of noise. The other
gets results. The third option is to be a fireworks
Christian. Fireworks begin by focusing power to
get them to a desired location and then explode
with all kinds of ways to catch people's attention
and amaze them in all kinds of wonderful ways.
I still believe in the USA. Something still hap-
pens to me when I see people waving flags and
hear patriotic songs being sung. Call me optimis-
tic, but I still believe in one nation under God. In
God I still trust. And I still celebrate the Fourth of
July and anticipate fireworks as part of that cel-
ebration.
I want to tell you that I still anticipate fireworks
out of my faith as well. There is too much to be
done here in our corner of God's world for us to
quit taking risks and stepping out on faith. Our
calling is to go forth into the world with the au-
thority we receive from God and make explosive
things happen.

You see, I still anticipate fireworks. I still an-
ticipate miracles. I still anticipate excitement and
enthusiasm, healing, and conversion. I expect
fireworks to happen every time God calls us and
sends us out. I expect my faith and my church to
make a difference in my world. And I want you to
expect it, too!
I believe the colonists trusted and depended
on God when they made and adopted the Dec-
laration of Independence. Because of their trust,
God blessed us as a nation.
I believe that if we remember to trust and
depend on God today, God will use us to make
fireworks happen; and again, God will bless us
as a nation.

Declaration of Dependence
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
As we approach our 235th year as a Nation
we are all familiar with "The Declaration Of In-
dependence." However that document of our
founding is also a "Declaration of Dependence."
It declares before God and our fellow citizens our
utter dependence upon the beneficence of our
beloved Creator. And how true is this part of the
"declaration."
Without His air we could not breathe. With-
out His provisions we could not eat or be clothed
and housed. Without His grace and kindness we
could not live each day with the hope of eternal
life. Without the blessed Savior we could not
grasp the abundant life in the here and now.
The thought of being independent may come
in our minds when our bellies are full and our
bank account flush. But there is no way to be
genuinely independent while spinning at such
a rapid speed on this old blue marble. The very
creative power of our holy God is what keeps our
tiny planet in the orbit around our tiny sun.
On our very best days, with our very best hair,
in our very best clothes, enjoying our very best
health, we are but struggling pilgrims in the grip
of God's mercy!
Our worth is worthless except in the heart of a
loving God. We are creatures made in His likeness
to honor His Will. This is our calling and great
1.'ii .-., Yet without His indulgence we would
be penniless and pitiable and pathetic persons of
carbon and mist.
O yes, we declare for all to read our depen-
dence upon Almighty God! He alone sustains!
Psalm 139:7 asks the pertinent questions, "Where
can I go from Your Spirit? Where can I flee from
Your Presence?" We need to "Pray For America."

Awards

Continued From Page 9

The night's first honoree was considered by
many to be a positive presence in the Glades, as
he took on the role of becoming the founder and
President emeriti of the Glades Youth Athletic As-
sociation years ago.
The late Bythwood, a former dean at Glades
Central High School, also previously served as a
Belle Glade city commissioner and an officer of
the now defunct Belle Glade Police Department.
Ronald Cook, who presented the special
award to the late Bythwood, considered him a
"great mentor to us all." Cook, a former Glades
Central Raiders assistant coach, talked about how
the late Bythwood had an impact on his life.
"Dan Bythwood gave me $57 and took me
to a bus station one day," Cook recalled. "When
I was on my way to college, he told me not to
come home for three Christmases. I asked him
why and he told me it would let him know what
direction in life I'm headed in. That just goes to
show what kind of man Dan was."
Al Royal, who presented the award with Cook,
remembered Bythwood as an individual who em-
braced the opportunity to be an advocate for the
youth. As a youngster in the 1960s, Royal recalled
a time in which the former football coach made
him and his teammates feel like "we were sup-
posed to win every game we played."
"He was a person who always believed in us,"
Royal said. "He told us that anything we believed
in, we could achieve it. I appreciate him for the
fortitude he had about himself."
Meanwhile, Boldin, who recently became the
fastest NFL player in history to catch 600 passes in
his career, was the next person to be honored at
the night's awards ceremony.
A special slideshow presentation of Pahokee's
2010 "Key to the City" proved to be one of the
night's top highlights.
Boldin, who launched the Anquan Boldin
Foundation in 2004, has hosted his highly re
guarded Q Fest series of activities for the past seven
years in Pahokee.
In addition, the Baltimore Ravens Walter
Payton Man of the Year recipient has launched a

summer enrichment academic program this year
in Pahokee for the high school students, among
many other community service initiatives.
Pahokee Blue Devils defensive coordinator
Ricky Lammons was on hand to present Boldin
his Leadership Beyond Sports award.
Lammons considers Boldin as Pahokee's "Su-
perman."
"To me, Anquan is a godsend," Lammons
said. "You don't find many people like him every-
day. He has a very giving nature about himself.
Everyone in Pahokee appreciates him for all that
he's done for our community over the years."


After coming up to the podium to receive his
plaque, Boldin gave a speech on what this honor
meant to him.
"I consider the Muck as my hometown," Bol-
din said. "To receive an award like this means a
lot. If it had not been for where I'm from, I would
not be where I'm at today. The Muck grew me up,
made me a man and gave me an opportunity to
give back. I can say that without any hesitation,
the greatest investment you can make is in the
lives of kids. I won't stop giving back to the youth
because that's where my heart is always at."
The third and final honoree of the night was

Butts, who currently serves his time as the track
and field head coach for the Belle Glade-based
Big Lake Track Club.
For more than 30 years, the coaching legend
has impacted the lives of many of the ,,. ' ,..I, I
through the sports of football, track and field, bas-
ketball and softball.
Butts has been widely considered in the Glades
as a father and mentor to a host of individuals, in-
cluding current Glades Central Raiders head foot
ball coach/presenter Roosevelt Blackmon.
"It would take a lifetime to discuss everything
Mr. Butts has done for us, especially for me"
Blackmon said. "He's the reason why I'm in edu-
cation. He's the reason that I am the head coach.
He's the reason why I played sports and went to
college."
Blackmon, who also serves as an assistant
coach of the Big Lake Track Club, touched on
how Butts has been a "father figure" in his life.
"We all grew up at Lake Shore Park and
played for him," Blackmon said. "Growing up, a
lot of us didn't have that father figure we needed,
but he was the one for us. Mr. Butts has inspired
me in everything that I've done in my life. To Mr.
Butts, from the bottom of my heart, I love you
and I thank you for the times you loved me and
disciplined me. I don't know what I'd do without
you."
Butts, upon receiving his award, took his time
out to give honor to Blackmon and a slew of oth-
ers who played sports for him years ago.
Webb concluded the awards ceremony.
"From each generation, these three broth-
ers are like beacons of light for our area," Webb
said. "Once again, we truly appreciate them for
everything they've done to give back to our com-
munity."
Notes: Donations from the Leadership Beyond
Sports Awards Ceremony were raised to provide
Butts a van for the Big Lake Track Club.
The Young Archonettes and the Zeta Phi Beta
Sorority performed a special dance sequence at
the event, while K-Beazie gave a rap performance
in Boldin's honor, entitled "Ain't Gon' Stop Till We
Reach The Top."

This irrigation canal is one of hundreds whose water level should be far higher than current
levels. The cane field it feeds into already feeling the effects of the drought.


Effects of drought may
even be felt next year

BY JUAN LOPEZ
The Sun
With U.S. Sugar already being hit with losses
to last year's harvest due to the freezes, they
brace for the damages the current drought will
bring. Recent weeks have seen a drenching of
sorts, however, and the rainy season appears to
have finally come to the area through several
heavy downpours. But it may still be too late
for this year's sugar crop. In what should be the
"grand growth season" of June, July and August,
the drought has essentially stunted the growth of
the newly planted cane. Other areas have seen
the growth completely come to a stop.
Judy Sanchez, U.S. Sugar's director of corpo-
rate communications, commented on the dry
conditions and what losses could be incurred.
"This year is nearly comparable to the
drought of 2007 and it may get worse," she said.
"We are preparing for losses of anywhere from
8 to 12 percent."
She continued saying that those percentages
would be close to 600,000 tons of sugar cane
which converts to a loss of 60,000 tons of sugar.
Could these potential losses mean less work
ers for the 2011 harvest? Sanchez replied, "The
amount of workers needed to for the next har-
vest will not change," Sanchez said. "Whether it
is freeze or drought damage, the same amount
of cane needs to be harvested. What will be aft
fected is the amount of sugar we get. That will
affect our bottom line."
While the recent heavy rains have been help-
ing, far more will be needed to keep the losses
as low as possible. What is possible is that the
drought conditions could impact next year's
crop as the lake waters may not have enough
time to replenish in time for next year's plant-
ing and growth season. The summer months
are what sugar cane growers call the "grand
growth season." This season coincides with the
yearly rainy season. During this time period, if
the amount of rain is constant, sugar cane grow
as fast as one inch per day.
Unfortunately, neither rainwater nor water


from the irrigation canals are enough.
The Water District has been doing everything
possible to help farmers and growers have the
water necessary for their crops. They have in-
stalled pumps to help with irrigation but they
cannot match the output that the lake currents
provided. With the restrictions in place, U.S.
Sugar is operating with 55 percent of their nor-
mal water use, but with the less efficient pumps,
that percentage is actually closer 40 percent of
their normal water usage.
"Everybody is sharing the frustration," San-
chez said. "What didn't help were the releases
done by the Army Corps of Engineers. They con-
ducted multiple releases while everyone from
Water Management to weather forecasters were
saying 'drought."'
Terry Smith, of the Army Corps of Engineers,
responded to the comment.
"Water levels on Lake Okeechobee are main-
tained in accordance with the Lake Okeechobee
Regulation Schedule of 2008," she stated. "Corps
releases did not cause the drought nor exacer-
bate it. The releases were carefully managed."
The Lake Okeechobee Regulation Schedule
was developed by the Army Corps of Engineers
and public involvement. Its goal is to maintain
optimum water levels between 12.5 ft. to 15.5 ft.
Smith went on to explain that releases are made
for a variety of reasons including risk reduction
to the Herbert Hoover Dike, releases of fresh wa-
ter for environmental stability and a multitude of
other competing interests.
According to Smith, factors that affect releas-
es are always being considered.
"When the Lake Okeechobee water level
falls below the Water Shortage Management
Band, the Corps defers to the South Florida
Water Management District's recommendation
for water allocation to various users," she said.
"This occurred in mid-December 2010."
Weather forecasters are predicting more rain
in the coming weeks. It may not be enough to
help South Florida recover from the damage
done by the freezes or the drought.
The only option left is that a tropical depres-
sion or a string of heavy storms to sweep over
the area and dump several inches of rain over
the lake to replenish the water supply and stem
the rising level of damage.

Crested Caracara.
BY MARGARET ENGLAND
Hendry-Glades Audubon
Binoculars are a birder's eyes on the world,
and they can greatly affect the quality of a bird
outing. They come in different sizes and magni-
fication.
When selecting binoculars make sure the
power (or magnification) is at least 7 -power and
the second number ("40" for an "8 X 40" pair of
glasses) is four to five times as large as the power
(e.g., "8 X 40," "10 X42," etc.).
For information about the selection of bin-
oculars visit the FWC's Great Florida and Wildlife
Trail Birding Resources link at I ii.i in. Il. I I I
ingtrail.com.
The Crested Caracara is a large, long-legged
tropical raptor that has a black cap, black body
and a white tail with wide black tip. The bare skin
on its face is bright orange-red when it is at rest,
preening or engaged in other non-aggressive be-
haviors. When threatened the facial skin changes
to pumpkin color and finally pale yellow.
The crest at the end of the Caracara's cap lays
flat when it is comfortable and not threatened,
but it will raise its crest when it feels threatened,
frightened or is on alert. This bird is mostly silent
but during courtship or in the early morning or
evening it may throw its head back until it almost
touches its shoulders and make a high, crackling
sound that resembles its Brazilian name.


Caracara nest as early as September with the
height of their nesting season in January or Feb-
ruary. Their diets include carrions, insects, mam-
mals, and invertebrates including fish, snakes,
turtles, birds and mammals.
It is estimated that 400-500 birds of the 'threat-
ened" Caracara may remain in Florida. Crested
Caracara are often reported in dry or wet prairie
areas with scattered cabbage palms or are seen
eating carrion along roadways in the counties sur-
rounding Lake Okeechobee.

bon volunteers on the July 16 birdwatching trip

Leadership Donates to the Jerome Golden Center for Behavioral Health


Class members of Leadership Glades, 2010-
2011, chose the PANDA program of the Jerome
Golden Center for Behavior Health to receive
$2,000. Leadership Glades class members, Kevin
Wedgeworth, Mary Orsenigo, Secretary Emeritus
and Captain Nancy Grimes of Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office presented the donation.
"You were kind enough to open your doors to
our class members and we were all touched by
your great work," stated Kevin Wedgeworth.
PANDA is a residential substance abuse treat
ment facility for women and their infants. This is
available to women from Palm Beach County.
PANDA, which stands for Pregnant and Addicted,
teaches women coping skills, life skills and helps
them to reintegrate back into the community.
The residential program is available to wom-
en who meet criteria for alcohol/drug abuse and/
or dependence.
In addition, women are accepted with or
without children for substance abuse treatment;
however, the priority is women who are pregnant
and addicted.
PANDA accepts pregnant women who are in
the third month of their pregnancy. And even after
they give birth, the mom is allowed to keep the
baby with her while in the program which makes
it much easier for the mom to stay in treatment
and in the program.
Women are provided individual, group and
family therapy, chemical dependency education,
relapse prevention counseling, nutrition counsel-


What do Belle Glade, Clewiston, Pahokee,
Moore Haven and South Bay have in common -
the splendid shores of Lake Okeechobee.
Lake 0 unites these cities geographically
and economically. From its inception, the Lake
Okeechobee Regional Initiative (LORI) under-
stood the value of Lake 0 and ecotourism to the
communities along its southern shores.
"We want to help the stakeholders in the
area understand that their economic destiny is
tied to one another and that, collectively, each
community stands to gain if the entire region
remains united," said Philip Bacon, the Collins
Center's vice president for neighborhood and
regional initiatives.
In 2010, LORI formed a tourism subcommit-
tee of local citizens committed to: i, - i, ,1 'i i.- 0 ,.
region as a rural tourism destination; increasing
tourism and hotel revenue; spurring new eco-
nomic development; creating brand awareness
of Lake Okeechobee; increasing attendance at
attractions, festivals and events; growing target
audience engagement with the region; and driv-
ing traffic to a tourism website.
Last fall LORI unveiled the first phase of its
ecotourism brand as the "Southern Shores of
Lake Okeechobee: Gateway to the Everglades."
"Our task on the tourism subcommittee has
been unique and exciting as this region is pri-
marily agricultural," said Zina El Daghar, of Ca-
nal Point Community Development. "Being part
of this team has enhanced my appreciation for
the lake."
Driven by aggressive ,i. - ,i . . the subcom-
mittee was able to design a regional logo, tour-
ism brochure and a first-class video promoting
the lake. A tourism website was launched and


ing for the moms and their babies, pre and post
natal care, GED preparation, parenting skills, and
vocational counseling.
Leadership Glades is an exciting program de-
signed to prepare potential leaders to meet the
challenges facing the Glades.


has attracted visitors from across Florida and
places as far as Russia.
Since the unveiling in 2010, LORI's tourism
push has shifted into second gear. The tourism
site has been redesigned and now includes low-
cost advertising opportunities.
LORI has also worked with visit Florida to
place brochures at Florida welcome centers
throughout the state.
The Southern Shores brochures can also be
found along Florida's Turnpike, in airports in Fort
Myers and West Palm Beach, Sports Authority
and Bass Fishing Outlets locations throughout
Florida and Georgia, more than 350 restaurants,
motels, businesses, and attractions in Southwest
Florida.
LORI also partnered with the Scott Martin
Challenge to bring state and national attention
to Lake 0 and its surrounding communities. The
tourism video currently runs during the show to
promote the region as an outdoors paradise.
During the spring festival season, the South-
ern Shores marketing team set up tourism booths
at the Chalo Nitka Festival in Moore Haven, Loop
the Lake for Literacy, Black Gold Jubilee in Belle
Glade and the Clewiston Sugar Festival.
For travelers who don't know how to find
the lake, T-shirts with the logo and website have
been designed with the slogan, "Where do you
go to find Lake O?" These shirts allow local citi-
zens and tourists to sport their Lake 0 pride ev-
erywhere. Shirts are available for purchase on
the tourism website.
Support the Southern Shores today. Link
www.lakeobigwater.com to your business or
, . i.-ii. or use the brochure to promote the
great region around the lake.


Participants explore critical issues through a
series of seminars and related activities.
Interaction with key decision-makers, local
area experts, community leaders and represen-
tatives of local government assist participants in
better understanding the forces that impact their


business, community and daily lives.
The mission of the Jerome Golden Center for
Behavioral Health is to help clients build resilien-
cy, facilitate recovery and achieve reintegration
into the community by designing and delivering
behavioral health, mental health and substance
abuse services that meet their needs and expecta-
tions.
Among the services the Center provides to
more than 8,000 individuals annually include a
Mobile Crisis Team which is available 24 hours
a day, seven days a week to individuals in crisis;
a 44 bed Inpatient Psychiatric Hospital; Coping
with Economic Stress program designed to as-
sist individuals develop the necessary coping
skills to deal with the negative implications of the
economy; Supported and Supervised Housing
which provides safe and affordable housing for
those who need assistance with daily living and/
or homelessness; provide therapy to women with
postpartum depression as a part of the Healthy
Beginnings System; and programs for veterans
who have "hidden wounds" and their families en-
during the stress of their loved ones being away
and in danger.
These are just a few of the comprehensive ar
ray of services offered by the Center.
For more information on the Center or any of
the programs offered please contact Maureen Hu-
ber, Director of Development, at 561-383-5725 or
