Too Costly


to Fix?

$100 million needed to
address infrastructure,
customers asked to buy
into surcharge hike

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Sun
The urgency of rehabilitating the aging
infrastructure in the Glades communities is
linked to the area's most vital resource: water.
Piping running underneath the three cities has
seen better days and is no longer functioning
as it should.
The constantly shifting earth, the interac-
tion between dirt and piping, and time itself
has eroded the capacity of the pipes to deliver
water from the recently built water treatment
plant to the homes of customers.
The result is a perfect storm of misfortune
for Glades res residents.
Just three years iii.i ii ._: constructed, the
Lake Region Water Treatment Plant, the brain
of the system, is in need of dire repairs to avoid
compromising delivery to paying water cus-
tomers in the three rural cities, operators say.
In simple terms, the water that is being
treated is far saltier than planners had account
ed for, and the current output isn't meeting the
needs of the three towns.
Just last month, Palm Beach County Corn

EDO Celebrates Completion of Circle S Pharmacy


On June 24, the Economic Development
Office (EDO) and District 6 Commissioner Jess
Santamaria, along with Pahokee city officials and
business leaders, held a ribbon cutting to cel-
ebrate the first completed project in the Down-
town Pahokee Revitalization Project Area.
Around two dozen citizens, well wishers and
family members attended the gathering at Circle
S Pharmacy, a business that provides a majority
of the pharmaceutical needs for the rural com-


munity.
"I am very humbled and honored to have
my pharmacy as the first business in Pahokee
to complete this redevelopment process," said a
visibly moved Arnaldo "Mike" Garcia, owner of
the store located at 323 Bacom Point Road.
"The county has been steadfast in its support
of what we've been trying to do here," added
Pahokee Mayor J.P Sasser. "I can't say enough
about them."


The $227,000 project was funded in partner-
ship with the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD) through a Section
108 Loan and a Brownfield Economic Develop-
ment Initiative grant.
The monies paid for the purchase of new
machinery and equipment to improve efficiency
and increase the pharmacy's inventory.

Howard.

2 Inches of Rain Insufficient


BY JUAN LOPEZ
The Sun
Many are seeing the recent rainfall as a sign
that condition are changing and soon the lake
level will be back to normal and water issues
solved. According to a release from the South
Florida Water Management District, the recent
rains have been a great benefit but a greater
amount of rain will be needed to recover from
the drought. With the wet season starting far
later than it should, it will have to make up for
far more than just its late arrival, recovering from
last year's hot summer and freezing winter. At
the National Weather Service, this recent weath-
er trend does have some concerned but they do
understand that such weather patterns are cycli-
cal in nature. There will be extremely dry condi-
tions some years and thoroughly wet conditions
others. The reason why drought conditions have
such an impact on the area is that so much wa-
ter is required and used on a I .i, I. , i
The U.S. Drought Monitor is listing much of
South Florida as being in extreme to exceptional


drought conditions, the driest on the scale.
Burn bans remain in place on SFWMD pub-
lic lands because of the remaining threat of wild-
fires. The ban means fires in grills, fireplaces or
fire rings are not permitted. But, all is not doom
and gloom as recent rainfall totals have everyone
eyeing a possible end in sight. Areas in South
Florida recorded as much as 9 inches. Currently,
the rainfall totals for just the first three days in
July are optimistic: 2.29 inches of rain. While
this may sound as a lot of rain, it is only the start
of what is needed. Not all rainfall makes into
Lake Okeechobee. Some of it helps in replen-
ishing the surrounding water tables, canals and
rivers; while some it evaporates to help in the
rain cycle. The lake level is at 9.83 inches, which
is better than the 9.64 inches it was recording in
mid-June. Weather forecasts are predicting rain
and thunderstorms for the rest of the week.
With a possible good ending in sight, of
ficials still caution that if not enough rainfall is
collected by the time the dry season begins in
October, South Florida may enter into it already
fighting a water deficit.


Water

Continued From Page 1




missioners unanimously approved a $7 million
infusion to keep water flowing to the homes of
Glades residents in South Bay, Belle Glade and
Pahokee. The money will be used to immedi-
ately address the issue.
Meanwhile, the decreased production of
the struggling plant results in up to 40 percent
of the water it manages to produce that fails to
travel through the pipes and seeps back into the
ground. Cost to fix the issue ina .i, 11 ... i. ,'
Officials estimate $100 million.
A third, perhaps more pressing matter with
regards to the water plant is a proposed $17.45
monthly surcharge to every water customer in
the Glades. The surcharge is meant to account
for GUA's mounting operating deficits - a $2 mil-
lion deficit in its most recent year of operation,
as well as the possible loss of its largest com
mercial user in Glades Correctional Institution.
Leaders are working to find a way to keep
GCI in operation to spare the loss of jobs and
keep the r., ,,i. ' I million it provides to the GUA
as its main user of water. The state had previous-
ly identified the local correctional facility to be
shut down in the wake of Governor Rick Scott's
move to privatize more correctional institutions
throughout the state.
At a recent Tri-Cities Meeting, the cities of
Pahokee, South Bay and Belle Glade said their
intention was in voting against the measure
to provide the extra funding to GUA through a
surcharge, arguing that residents - among the


poorest in the county - cannot afford to pay any
more.
"We already pay twice as much for water in
the Glades than anywhere else in Palm Beach
County. There's no way our residents can sus-
tain that kind of expense," said Pahokee Mayor
J.P. Sasser.
With a vote against the measure, the finan
cial distress to the GUA could even trigger the
involvement of the governor, who might have to
step in to assume control of the troubled water
system. A meeting scheduled to be held yester-
day, July 6, had the surcharge as its main topic
of discussion.
People like the Pahokee mayor are quick to
recall the federal government's absence in fund
ing the water treatment plant in the first place.
"The federal government really never want-
ed to address it up until now," he said. "It fell to
Palm Beach County to finance the plant."
It has been a battle for years for the Glades
area to receive clean drinking water. A study
years ago found higher levels of Trihalomethane
- an agent known to cause cancer in the water,
and despite repeated action to address the water
system, the distribution of water to homes and
businesses seems to continue down its troubled
path.
Mayor Sasser said he remains hopeful this
time around that the federal government will do
more to help with addressing the major issues
affecting water delivery in the Glades. Minutes
after a meeting with the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture, he said the agency wished
to find ways of partnering with the area, and laid
the groundwork for their continued involvement
in the matter.
"I came away from the meeting very encour-
aged," Sasser said.

Lake Okeechobee


Bi-Weekly Fishing Report

p"I -II p u


BY MARK KING
Summer is here in South Florida and, as
the temperature heats up, the fishing on Lake
Okeechobee remains pretty good. The water level
is back up to 9.83 feet above sea level as water is
being pumped into the lake from the surrounding
fields.
We desperately need water in the lake right
now but the dirty, nasty water coming in the ca-
nals to the lake right now is better than no water
at all.
This water coming in has made it a bit tougher
fishing in the rim canal but the dynamite holes
and fishing out on the lake is still good.
In the summer on Lake Okeechobee I like to
get an early start in the morning because it gets
pretty hot out on the lake. The good thing is that
the bass here seem to bite all day if you can find
them.
Some great places to find them now is out in
the holes and cuts in the reefs on the main lake.
Now that we are receiving some water back in
the lake it isn't so hard to get to them. Everyone
knows that my favorite lure to throw when the
water is low is a shakey head jig with either a
worm or soft plastic jerk bait attached.
I can take a /4 ounce Gambler Giggy Head jig
and a Gambler Sweebo worm or Super Stud and
catch bass here on the lake every trip out. Yes,
there are days when a topwater lure like a Zara
Super Spook or one of the topwater lures made
by Sam Griffin will catch more and larger bass.
As far as consistency goes, a shakey head jig
will catch you bass . i, 1.... you go out as long
as you are fishing in the right areas. Another lure
that has been working well for me lately is a 10"
worm rigged Texas style with a 1/8 ounce weight
and fished slow, a Gambler junebug colored
worm is my choice.
The wild shiner bite is a little slow as it always
is during the summer months. That's not to say
1 ,ii , . .... 'iI catch bass on shiners because I do
it at least once a week. For the most part artificial
lures will catch you more and larger fish during
the summer months.
Don't be afraid to try other lures and tactics
when the bite slows down in the summer. Try
switching things up with a swimbait, Carolina rig,
drop shot, or crankbaits. You might just find the
next best lure to be using here on the big lake and
you won't have to share it with anyone.
There are still quite a few bluegills to catch
out on the lake right now and the size has been
really big. Fishing guide Joe Payne reported catch-
ing some really nice bluegill with clients and his


grandsons in the Caloosahatchee River on crick-
ets.
I will still be guiding here on the lake as well as
guiding for sharks down in the Florida Keys. And
as August approaches I will be offering lobstering
trips in the Keys both snorkeling and night time
bully netting. Lobstering is a lot of fun and what
better catch to eat while here in Florida. Good
luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone out on
the water soon.

Significant Rainfall Required for


Recovery from Drought


Water levels begin rising
but remain well below
average

BY GABE MARGASAK
SFWMD
Following one of its latest starts in two de-
cades, the wet season has finally arrived to begin
recharging regional groundwater levels, lakes,
rivers and canals across the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD). However, sig-
nificant time and rainfall will be necessary for this
short term relief to bring long-term improvement
from months of record drought conditions.
The 16-county region averaged 5.92 inches of
rainfall in June, which still represents a deficit of
about 2 inches District wide for the month. The
June deficit for the coastal areas of Palm Beach,
Broward and Miami Dade counties ranged from
4 to 5 inches.
"While it is encouraging to report that the
Upper Kissimmee and Caloosahatchee basins
received nearly 100 percent of their historic June
rainfall, we need to see this daily rainfall pattern
continue across large portions of South Florida
before key areas such as Lake Okeechobee and
the Water Conservation Areas begin to reach nor-
mal water levels," said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD
Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau.
"While relief is in sight, certain portions of the
District are still facing rainfall deficits of more than
a foot and, without adequate rainfall during the


wet season, we could enter the next dry season
still in a deficit."
Much of June's rainfall fell during the past
week, with an average of 3.5 inches District
wide. Some localized areas received a maximum
of about 9 inches. Lake Okeechobee rose more
than 2 inches to 9.77 feet NGVD on Friday. East
ern Palm Beach County, one of the areas hardest
hit by the drought, averaged 2 to 4 inches of rain
in the past week. The Southwest Coast averaged
3 to nearly 5 inches, while Martin and St. Lucie
counties averaged 2 to 4 inches.
However, signs of the driest October-to-mid-
June period on record in South Florida remain.
Groundwater levels are still significantly below
average for this time of year. There is currently
little to no flow down the Kissimmee River to
Lake Okeechobee. The lake remains more than
3 feet below its historic average for this time of
year. Other key storage areas, such as the Water
Conservation Areas, are also still below their op-
timal water levels.
The U.S. Drought Monitor lists much of the
region in extreme to exceptional drought condi-
tions, the driest on the scale.
A burn ban remains in place on SFWMD pub-
lic lands because of the remaining threat of wild-
fires. The ban means fires in grills, fireplaces or
fire rings are not permitted.
The SFWMD is closely monitoring water
levels and is urging residents and businesses to
conserve their water use and continue to closely
follow landscape irrigation restrictions.

Taking a Stand
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Founding Father Alexander Hamilton was
credited as saying, "He who stands for nothing
will fall for anything." Over the years many oth-
ers have picked this saying up and have quoted it.
US Senate Chaplain Peter Marshall once prayed,
"Give us clear vision, that we may know where to
stand and what to stand for - because unless we
stand for something, we
shall fall for anything."
Itwas a similar prayer
that many of our area
pastors recently prayed
for our community.
cn nAs many of you are
aware, there was talk
about a casino being
brought to Clewiston.
There were a number
of apples of temptation
offered up to get politi
John Hicks cal and public support.
Many of us advised cau
lion and prayerful dis
cernment before thinking of biting into some of
these apples. We were happy with the decline by
U.S. Sugar for land use for this purpose, which
stopped some of these casino plans, but still felt
the need and desire not to just let the issue drop,
but to publicly go on record as standing against
having a casino in our community. At our last
Clewiston Ministerial Association meeting, those
present voted unanimously to publicly go on re
cord with our Clewiston City Council and with
our Hendry County Commissioners as being op-
posed to having a casino in our area now or in the
future. Our feelings were to share that we believe
the consequences of having a casino in our area
would far outweigh the proposed benefits.
The following statement came as a result of
our meeting:
At our monthly meeting on Tuesday, June 7,
2011, the Clewiston Ministerial Association unani
mously voted to go on record as being opposed
to having a casino in our community now or in
the future. We understand the job opportunities
and other presented possibilities, but believe the
negatives would outweigh the potential positives.
Our conviction is that gaming is wrong and opens
the door to many other known evils.
Furthermore, we believe God has a better plan
for our area and we don't have to settle for "gam-
ing" to attract business or to create business.
We want to go on record that we are opposed
to any such activity and will strongly defend the

How I Am Made
BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
Among the stories handed down in our fam-
ily was when one of my great grandfathers nearly
shot a dog. That runs against my grain, was
reprehensible and made me curious about why
someone I should respect and admire would act
that way. I learned that
the dog gave birth to
some puppies, then put
them against a wall and
kicked them to death
with her hind feet. Evi-
dently my great-grand-
father saw something
very wrong in this act
and it drove him toward
something quite drastic.
A while ago, there was
a vignette on television
about a member of the Sam S. Thomas
cat family that killed a
monkey. The monkey
had a baby nearby and the cat suddenly became
quite maternal toward the baby monkey; protect-
ing it and keeping it safe. Lion prides will abandon
lions that harm cubs; denying them membership
in their society for doing something the rest of the
pride knows to be instinctively wrong. Recently
a kitten wandered into a monkey cage at a zoo;
only to be "adopted" by one of the older monkeys
when everyone feared harm might come to the
small and defenseless cat.
The zoo keepers didn't interfere; there are
instincts in all of God's creatures about how we
care for the young and how repulsive it is for ani-
mals and humans alike to take the lives of those
who are helpless and dependent. It is almost in
passing that Jesus added in the Beatitudes "Do

not worry about your life, what you will drink; or
about your body, what you will wear.
Is not life more important than food and the
body more important than clothes? (Matthew
6:25)." Yes, life itself is more important than even
what keeps us going or outward appearances! A
chapter before, the Lord admonishes that even
anger is tantamount to murdering someone;
don't even lay the groundwork for taking life! (cf
5:21 ff). There is something God has planted in us
that makes us want to respect life and to cher-
ish it especially in those who are incapable of de-
fending themselves. The life is indeed more than
the food or clothing; those whose lives are fragile
surely deserve their chance to grow to the point
where they can fend for themselves.
Evidently God wants us, and all of His crea-
tures to be around; respect life, defend those who
cannot yet provide for themselves, look after even
those you may find different from your own kind
if they are weak and helpless, woe to you if you
harm them ( cf Mark 9:42). Every now and then,
something will come up to cause me to be reviled
about a person or a deed. I have to ask myself
about what a person has done to cause such a
reaction in me; I'm not supposed to dislike others
or judge them for their actions, am I?
Occasionally, though, i .. i . . iii :
that strikes at the very core of all of God's created
order; human and animal alike. Then I know!

Parents are Responsible

spend a week-end in Hell if it would help their
social standing.
This in some way accounts for the lax attitude
much of -ii .ii ...ill 1 i. toward the church and the
moral an spiritual qualities of life today. Many par
ents have never discovered their role in relation
to their offspring. God gave children parents so
they might have a voice of authority, inspiration
and direction. There are some things in life which
are temporal and others are eternal. Only a fool
would choose the temporary over the perma-
nent. Too many parents fall in the latter category,
and their choices for their children are altogether
too revealing. Parents who do not provide spiritu-
al training and direction for their children are ab-
dicating their responsibility and laying the ground
work for human havoc and spiritual wreck. It
would have been better had their children not
been born. A noted criminologist has attributed
the crisis of juvenile delinquency to spiritual star
vation. He suggests that the only remedy lies in
spiritual training and development.
If .. i . ...I i are empty spiritually they are go-
ing to be empty morally. When teenage arrests
increase 58 percent in ten years while the popular
tion increases only 22 percent something is obvi
ously wrong.
A judge in Tennessee who presides over a
court which has jurisdiction over children under
17 years of age who have violated the law said,
"I have tried 4,800 cases. Of this number, only 29
have had a regular Sunday School record.
So far I have not had a child in court whose
Father and Mother attended either Sunday School
or Church regularly." Proverbs 22:6 says "Train up
a child in the way he should go; and when he is
old, he will not depart from it."

necked stilts is fearless in defending their nests by
circling over intruders and diving at them while
vocalizing with a loud sharp yipping sound. They
frequently build nests close to the shallow wa-
ter's edge. They have an average of four eggs in
a clutch. Both parents take turns incubating the
eggs. Their young are so mobile and mature that
they may be seen swimming within 2 hours of
birth. In spite of this early development the young
normally return to the nest for resting for one
or two more days. The young fledge after one
month, but remain dependent upon their parents
for some more weeks. Young Black-necked Stilt
are being seen at STA5 and other shallow wetland
areas in inland Florida.

S"After my dentist of 20 years quoted me a price on an implant, I looked for a second opinion.
I had seen ads for Appearance Implants and sought out Dr. Harrouff. When I walked into the
lobby of the office the first thing I saw was a photo of the late Republican strategist Lee
Atwater, who I later learned was a childhood friend of Dr. Harrouff. As a South Carolina
Democrat I didn't have a lot of love for Lee, he had gotten the best of me in my first campaign,
I sure as hell wasn't too keen on letting any buddy of Lee work on me. After that first encounter,
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Harrouff. The entire experience was purely first rate. From the
people who greeted me in the lobby and to the dental staff, the Appearance Implant & Laser Dentistry team
makes you feel right at home. When Dr. Harrouff got down to performing the procedure it was fast, relatively
painless and the result was just perfect. The finished implant works better than I'd expected. He provided me
with the most affordable treatment and I have been more than impressed and satisfied by the results. I have rec-
ommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.
Call our office to schedule your complimentary
consultation and let our team create a beautiful smile for you!

Bacterial Imbalances Linked to Disease that Strikes Infants


BY ROBERT H. WELLS
UF
New findings by the University of Florida may
help lead to a cure for a deadly disease that pri-
marily afflicts premature newborns.
'i. , .1 in'._: enterocolitis, or NEC, is the death
of tissue in the bowels that causes inflammation,
abdominal distention, bleeding, and in about 25
percent of the cases, mortality. It most often oc-
curs in newborns during the first weeks of life.
Current treatments for NEC depend on the
severity and include surgical and non-surgical
techniques. Medical care for infants with NEC is
estimated to cost up to $1 billion each year in the
United States.
The cause of NEC is unknown, but in a new
study UF researchers have pinpointed bacterial
imbalances associated with the onset of the dis-
ease, as well as a potentially new pathogen that
may also be connected.
Their findings are published this month in the
online journal PLoS ONE.
"Understanding what causes the disease will
potentially lead us to better ways of I" - iiii-:
and treating it," said Volker Mai, an author on the
study and a microbiologist with UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences and Emerging
Pathogens Institute.
"Our findings would also potentially lend
themselves to early diagnosis of the disease,
which again could be followed up by appropri-
ate treatment, which hopefully would result in a
reduction of the disease incidence," he said.
Examples of treatments, he said, could in-
clude antibiotics or bacteriophage therapy in
which viruses harmless to humans are used to
attack bacteria.
In the study, the microbiological composition
of stools from nine very low birthweight infants
with NEC was compared to stools from nine
healthy infants. Samples were collected both one
week before the onset of NEC and three days be-


fore the disease appeared.
The researchers used a cutting-edge DNA ex-
amination technique known as high-throughput
sequencingto .. ii, i, ii, , ii..... typesofmicro-
organisms than ever before, including a possibly
new type of bacterium that increased in the week
prior to diagnosis.
Also unique to this study, Mai said, was an
examination of the microorganisms before the
disease developed because previous studies only
looked at them after diagnosis.
"The big advantage of our study is that we are
utilizing the prospective approach that means we
are collecting samples from these pre-term in-
fants before they get sick and can thus look at the
microorganisms that colonize their guts before
these children got a disease," Mai said.
Dr. Josef Neu, a pediatrics professor in UF's
College of Medicine, was principal clinical investi-
gator on the study.
He said the study also found some possibly
predictive biomarkers, or proteins that can be
derived from a gentle swab of the baby's cheek,
that are different from those found in babies who
didn't _-, i i. disease. This field of study is known
as proteomics.
"Much more work needs to be done to
validate these results, but we are still collecting
samples and will repeat these studies on a much
larger sample," Neu said.
"But looking closely at the microbes in the gas-
trointestinal tract using state-of the-art microbial
sequencing technology and proteomics should
help us potentially find a better treatment for the
disease or be able to determine which babies are
at greatest risk for development of the disease, so
we can better target our therapies," he said.
The research was funded by the National
Institutes of Health, or NIH, and is part of NIH's
Human Microbiome Project. The project aims to
explore and understand microorganisms that live
in and on healthy and sick humans.

PBCFR helps out with the NFL Football Camp in Pahokee
On June 3 and 4, the crew from Station 72 in Pahokee was asked to help out the City of Pahokee with their NFL High School Player Development Program camp.
The camp involved approximately 200 kids, as well as some professional football players from the NFL. The crew from Station 72 was tasked to perform the
cooking duties and District Chief Burroughs was asked to say a few words of encouragement to the crowd. The kids had a great time and the City of Pahokee
was grateful for the help.
