GUA the lumber store would reach the invariable conclusion to shut its doors. GUA the restaurant w ould, too. But GUA the water provider to the Glades region is left without any choices. The utility system, which combined the water services of the tri-city area of Belle Glade, South Bay and Pahokee in favor of a uniform authority, as of Tuesday afternoon was without answers for how to keep its own doors open. For the GUA (Glades Utility Authority), the saying that when one door shuts, another opens might be modi ed to re ect the reality of the situation: that when one door shut closed, another one shut with it. The authority is in the hole, is looking at a potential $100 million project to rehabilitate water ow to residents and businesses, may be losing one of its single-largest water customers, and is seeing much resistance from all sides on a possible water rate hike. Who will provide drinking water to Glades residents? GUA Executive Director Jim Stiles put the issue on the table at the last meeting of the Lake Okeechobee Regional Economic Alliance of Palm Beach County, which is headed by Glades leaders. The gravity of the matter is certainly not lost on the GUA director. Normally in the course of any sizeable public consideration, the input of the community is asked for as a step in a standard process which must be followed. In the case of the GUA, the director seemed genuinely interested in the advice of the Glades area's business leaders. "Anything you can do to help us would be appreciated," Stiles told the lled room. Speaking about the possibility of stimulus money funneling in to the state from the federal government for infrastructure projects, he added. "If this mone y is going to come down from the president to the state, then it needs to come here." Stiles' rst experience with the water issues in the Glades came when he took a job helping to build the troubled Lake Region Water Treatment Plant. The problems the communities faced in the deteriorated water quality was the result o f decades of poor management of the water supply system, he said, and the regional plant set out to remedy that. Years later, even Stiles himself is surprised b y See Water — Page 12 Glades business leaders listened to a presentation at a LORE meeting by Jim Stiles, GUA director, who was unable to put at ease concerns about the water supply system in the Glades. After building a state-of-the-art water plant to supply clean drinking water to Glades residents, rising costs, unforeseen and necess ary repairs and a struggling customer base are hurting operations, with no help in sight. Who Will Provide Glades Residents Water?

Tally sheets with mailing and e-mail instructions are available on the HendryGlades Audubon website at www. hendrygladesaudubon.org. Reports and photographs of returning wintering birds and common birds will help create a snapshot of bird species in our area. One of the common residents birds found in the open pastures, prairies and towns with suitable habitat in inland Florida is the Eastern Meadowlark. The adult Eastern Meadowlark is a mediumsized stocky songbird with a short tail. It has a yellow throat, chest and yellow belly with a black “V” across its chest. The back is brown and streaked with white outer tail feathers. The juvenile Eastern Meadowlark is similar to the adult but is paler overall with dusty ecks on its chest instead of the black “V.” It is best known for its clear whistling song, but other calls include a buzz or rattling chatter. These birds are often seen feeding on the ground or in low vegetation where they search for insects which compose 75 percent of their diet. The rest of their diet consists of grains and weed seeds. During the summer Eastern Meadowlarks build nests on the ground which is hidden in thick grass. The nest has an “arched roof and consists of very ne grasses.” Some females raise two broods of 3-5 eggs in a season. Eggs are incubated for 13-15 days and the young edge at 11-12 days of age. One of the most reliable places to see, hear and photograph Eastern Meadowlarks is Dinner Island Wildlife Management Area on 833 in Hendry County. Please submit your photographs of the common inland Florida songbirds, owls, vultures, turkeys and ducks for future articles If you would like to volunteer for the Sept. 17, NAMC or join Hendry-Glades Audubon volunteers for the Oct. 15, STA5 bird trip, send an e-mail to Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail. com with your name and contact information including an emergency cell number for the trip day, the date you want to go, and the number in your party.

BY STATEPOINTThere are no shortages of diets and weightloss programs, offering con icting tips and advice. The sheer amount of information can lead many of us to stick our heads in the sand and hope our genes will withstand decades of poor eating and little or no exercise. "Filtering the plethora of diet information from television, books and the Internet can be overwhelming," says K.C. Craichy, a leading health researcher, speaker, and consultant on optimized natural health, nutrition, and tness. "And the many dieting fads can prevent people from establishing lifelong healthy habits." Here's what you need to know about some of the most popular weight-loss programs and plans available today, according to Craichy, who has authored "The Super Health Diet," a new book to help people successfully navigate this maze of diets and programs. Diet Clubs We've all seen the TV commercials for weightloss centers touting celebrity success stories. For the most part, these clubs provide a strong support network for people who have tried to lose weight on their own and failed. Many of these programs rely on a point system or pre-packaged food they sell to you. But these methods, while successful, can be hard to maintain once you are no longer in the program because they do not promote permanent lifestyle changes or teach you to prepare healthy meals on your own. Fad Diets From Atkins to The Zone to the new Macrobiotic and Vegan craze, America has rarely been without a diet fad. Many of these programs have helped people lose weight, even though they appear to give contradictory advice -one may advocate a low carbohydrate, high protein diet, while the other an average carb, low protein diet. The main reason for their success is that most Americans have unhealthy diets and overestimate portion allowances, so any restrictive diet is bound to help them lose weight. But these diets may not prepare you for optimum health and can be inconvenient to follow, especially those requiring unusual foods. The Mediterranean Diet Several decades ago, medical researchers began to take notice that people living in the Mediterranean, particularly in southern Italy and Greece, had lower rates of cardiovascular disease. They found that their diets contained low amounts of red meat, moderate levels of sh and poultry (once or twice a week), and high levels of fruits, vegetables, nuts, olive oil and legumes. Craichy says the key factors to this type of diet are the small portions, the use of omega-3 and other healthy fats like olive oil, resveratrol from grapes or red wine, and nutrient dense foods. His own suggested diet, based on years of research, emphasizes small, nutrient-dense portions, along with supplementing your diet with broad-spectrum antioxidants, minimizing sugar, and consuming high quality fats and fatty acids. To learn more about weight-loss techniques that can work for you, check out "The Super Health Diet" or visit www.LivingFuel.com. Then get started on building habits toward optimum health and long life. Hendry Regional Medical CenterFall is full of amazing things: cooler weather, beautiful and colorful leaves, football season, and allergies. Two out of every ten Americans suffer from allergies. Although speci c allergies cannot be inherited, people can inherit the tendency to be allergic. If one parent suffers from allergies, their child develops a 50 percent chance of inheriting allergies. If both parents have allergies, those odds increase to 75 percent. Christine Delucas, RN, vice president for clinical operations for Quorum Health Resources (QHR), documented the effect of allergies: "Allergies account for more than 17 million physician of ce visits, 30,000 emergency room visits, and several hundred deaths each year. Individuals with allergies are also at heightened risk for other diseases, including asthma." Quest Diagnostics’ 2011 report “Allergies Across America” found that: Allergen sensitization is increasing (6 percent over the 4 year study period); Sensitization to 2 common environmental allergens is increasing ragweed (+15 percent) and mold (+12 percent); and Allergens have a disproportionate negative effect on children (2:1 vs. adults). Dr. Jeffrey Matfus, Internal Medicine physician at the Hendry Family Care Center, de nes allergies as "an abnormal response of the immune system, which reacts to a usually harmless substance such as pollen, mold, animal dander or food." A person can be exposed to these allergens by inhaling them, swallowing them, or getting them on or under their skin. When suffering from a common allergic reaction, a person can have a number of symptoms including: Itchy eyes Sneezing Runny nose Rashes Feeling tired Hives Your symptoms can vary depending on what you're having an allergic reaction to. Food allergies have more internal reactions such as stomach cramps, vomiting, or diarrhea. Symptom severity can range from very mild, almost even unnoticeable, to severe. Moderate allergic reactions can make you feel as though you have a cold or the u, while more severe reactions can be debilitating. While most symptoms do not last long after the exposure to the allergen stops, the most severe allergic reaction, called anaphylaxis, can be life threatening. Anaphylaxis reactions cause whole-body symptoms that include: Hives and itching all over Wheezing or shortness of breath Tightness in the throat Tingling in the hands, feet, lips, or scalp "Anaphylactic symptoms progress quickly," says Dr. Matfus. "If you or a friend is experiencing an anaphylactic allergic reaction, seek medical attention immediately." Finding the cause of allergies can be as easy as realizing you sneeze every time you get close to a ower. However, some allergens are more dif cult to detect. An allergist can perform various tests to help you nd your trigger. These tests include skin testing, blood tests, or just the process of eliminating and re-introducing certain allergens in order to nd those triggers. Skin testing is the most common and the most helpful method of detection. Skin testing involves exposing skin to certain allergens over an extended period of time to observe reactions. Once allergens are detected, prevention can involve taking certain prescription and over-thecounter medicines, although the best prevention is avoiding your triggers altogether if possible. If you're experiencing allergy symptoms, contact Dr. Matfus for an appointment at 863-9833434. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 Choosing A Weight-Loss Program That Works For You Allergy Season is Here SUBMITTED PHOTOSneezing into your arm prevents spreading germs.

A public hearing to make a FINAL DECISION on the budget AND TAXES will be held on: September 20TH, 2011 at 7:00 P .M. at City of Moore Haven, City Hall 299 Riverside Drive Moore Haven Florida 33471 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 BY MARK KINGSeptember is here and as the water starts to cool a little the bass shing has started to get pretty good in some areas. The water is still a little low at 10.15 feet above sea level. It is coming up every day and that is very encouraging since all the major storms seem to be going to the northeastern states. It has been a pretty hot summer here in South Florida but the shing both here on Lake Okeechobee and in the Keys has been good. Catching bass this summer has been a little challenging with the water level being low but w hen you do nd the sh there seems to be a lot of them and some pretty good sized ones in the mix. One of my clients last week had a bass over seven pounds and I caught one right at eight and a half pounds the same day. So there are some really nice bass to be caught out on Okeechobee right now. The bite on arti cial lures has been better than using the wild shiners but that can change almost anytime as we head into fall here on the lake. Topwater lures like a RipRoller made by HighRoller in retiger color has been working great as w ell as a Zara Super Spook, and don't be afraid to throw topwater lures all day long. This past couple weeks the best bite didn't happen till after ten o'clock in the morning and most of my topwater bites were in the afternoon. Some of the other lures that have been working are ten inch worms and soft plastic uke baits in either junebug or watermelon-red color. I have been shing my soft plastics on a 1/16 or 1/8 ounce weight and shing them really slow, the lighter weight doesn't allow the sinker and worm to get caught up in the shrimp grass on the bottom of the areas I'm shing. I have been shing areas out on the lake from Uncle Joe's cut to Pelican Bay with pretty good success, but when the bite is really tough out on the main lake or the wind is really blowing there are still bass to be caught in the rim canal and dynamite holes. When shing the dynamite holes and rim canal try throwing a crankbait or a shakey head worm to catch these bass in deeper water. There are still a few bluegills hanging around out on the main lake and these areas are great places to catch bigger bass that are hanging around feeing on them. The winter should be a great season for us again this year here on Lake Okeechobee and if shing trip to catch some big bass sound good than now is the time to start planning a trip to the Big "O". After catching all the big bass that we did last year the bass should only be bigger this year. I am also starting to book for tarpon season next May and June and it won't take long to ll up these two months. If catching a monster tarpon is something you have always wanted to do please give me a call and we can set you up a trip to the beautiful Florida Keys and get you hooked up on a sh of a lifetime. Until next week good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water real soon.Capt.

National Do Nothing DayBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchThis un-event, rst observed in 1973, was created to provide Americans with one national day w hen they could just sit without celebrating, observing, or honoring anything. My question is, are we actually suppose to celebrate, or by celebrating would we be doing something and defeating the whole purpose of a holiday for doing nothing? Whatever, we'll have to wait for January 16 to do it (or not do it!) If you like food and holidays (who doesn't?), y ou're in luck. There's a national day set for just about every favorite food there is. You may have missed National Ice Cream Day (July 17), when w e had the chance to eat all the ice cream we w anted without apologies, but National Apple Dumpling Day (Sept. 17) and National Cheeseburger Day and National Rice Krispies Treats Day (Sept. 18) are coming. (And National Homemade Cookie Day is October 1!) But life is more about food. National Collect Rocks Day (Sept. 16) is upon us. Collect them from the beach, the woods, your neighbors' yard. (they don't need them anyway.) Then get ready because next is Figure Out What To Do With A Big Heap Of Rocks Day. On a more serious note, National POW/MIA Recognition Day is observed this year on Sept. 16. Many Americans use the time to remember those w ho were prisoners of war (POW) and those w ho are missing in action (MIA), as well as their families. Sunday, Sept. 18 is National Back to Church Day. Thousands of churches will open their doors and welcome everyone who would like to rediscover church. This is not just to ll seats, but to share faith and fellowship and an encounter with the living Lord. Most are at least somewhat likely to attend church if invited, and most who drop out of church haven't lost their faith in God, they simply fell out of the habit of churchgoing. This day is a special challenge to church members to come and invite others to share in a worship experience. Sept. 28 is National Ask A Stupid Question Day. If not for a chance to get all of our stupid questions out of the way, no one would have ever asked, "Do you think we can have a National A nswer Your Cat's Questions Day?" (January 22) A nd see how well that turned out for all of us? So go ahead, let loose with all of those questions y ou've been too embarrassed to ask. And don't miss National Bathtub Day on October 7. Rub-a-dub-dub! Hop in the tub!The Reason That Sti es SolutionsBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne of my teachers told me about rebuilding J apan after the Second World War. The Japanese railroads wanted to modernize, they bought a used American locomotive. It was carefully disassembled and duplicated. At one point the locomotive had been repaired and there was a patch on the boiler. Each new locomotive that came out of the Japanese factory had a patch on the boiler. Nobody stopped to ask w hy it was there, what purpose it served. As I've listened to church controversies, someone will propose another way of doing something that hasn't been tried. The opposition will counter "We've never done it that way before." That answer is offered up as a reason to veto a new idea without examining the pro's or con's of the suggestion. There was a church started by a larger congregation; the parent group becoming upset when the new group didn't want a rectangular building with columns at the front and a steeple over the entry. The edgling group built a church-in-theround, the altar being a bit back from the center with pews in semi-circles. In this way, more people could be closer to the altar than was possible with the more traditional design. The "parent" congregation had to get over what their "offsprings" had done. The Lord Himself faced the problem. He went to His hometown and began teaching there (Matthew 13:53ff). The people were "amazed" and asked "Where did this man get this wisdom and these miraculous powers?" and then they asked "Isn't this the carpenter's son? Isn't his mother's name Mary and aren't His brothers James, Joseph, Simon and Judas?" and then "they took offense at him!" and" He did not do many miracles there "(vss 55-58). Of course not! Jesus didn't do things as they were done before. He had transcended the heritage and traditions that they felt should have been handed to Him. His new ideas? They certainly didn't come from his upbringing, his family or the past. What Jesus taught and did was never done before! Their quick dismissal led to the loss of something sacred. We make progress when we look at the larger picture; the principles behind the locomotive and what each part contributed, whether or not we have parental rights to control our offspring's every decision, if something is "bad" just because it hasn't been tried before or is there merit in what is being proposed. We are living in a complex world today with much fear and disappointment. There is a lot of hurt and many people feel they have been betrayed in where they have invested their lives, what they believed. I'd like to believe that proposed solutions are considered on their merits, rejected because they have failed in the past, or shown to be poorly thought out. We may have gotten into problems just because we did do it that way before. The way out may be to look at the merits of suggested answers and not fall back into old ways of making decisions.Has the Church Lost it's Young People?BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchWe often hear people say the church is losing its young people. Exactly what do they mean by this? It seems to me that this is not usually given as a statement of fact, but rather intended to be an indictment of the church for failure of some sort. The truth of the matter is that the church has no young people to lose. God has entrusted children to their parents, not the church. Ephesians 6:4 says "And ye fathers provoke not your children to wrath; but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord." The church has the same responsibility to young people that it has to anyone else, preach the Word! It is not the church that must decide at what hour your teen must be in. It is not the preacher that tells your children what TV programs they can or cannot watch. The church does not choose the friends your children can have in your home, nor the ones the y run with at school. Your Sunday School Teachers are not responsible for how your son or daughter prepares for their class. Who should do these things? Parents! Who is kidding whom? If your child is lost, do not blame the church! The church is here to teach them but it must have the cooperation of the parents. Now if you want to bring down your young person. Do this! 1. Provide him with plenty of free spending money. 2. Permit him to select his own companions without restraint or direction. 3. Give him a door key and allow him to return home at any hour of the night without having to give an account. 4. Make no inquiry as to where or how he spends his leisure hours. 5. Make him understand that manners make a good substitute for morals. 6. Let him know that anything goes as long as it does not hurt someone else. 7. Let him understand that he will be paid for any act of helpfulness at home. 8. Let him spend his church time on the street or anywhere else instead of being in church. 9. Be careful never to let your young people see you pray or set an example that might be a positive in uence.

U.S. Sugar Corporation is proud to announce that U.S. Department of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsak and U.S. Trade Representative Ron Kirk have appointed Judy Clayton Sanchez to the Agricultural Technical Advisory Committee for Trade (ATAC) in Sweeteners and Sweetener Products. “Trade issues have an enormous impact on the sugar industry and it is vital that our industry have a strong voice in Washington, D.C. Judy Sanchez brings that voice and nearly 20 years of experience and expertise to the table,” said Robert Coker, senior vice president, public affairs. “With the 2012 Farm Bill discussions underway, Ms. Sanchez’ appointment could not have come at a more opportune time,” Coker said. “With the national economy in shambles, it is more important than ever that we not allow subsidized foreign sugar to replace ef cient American sugar farmers and export more American jobs overseas.” “With U.S. agricultural exports reaching record highs as our farmers and ranchers bring the American brand to more of the world consumers, agricultural trade is demonstrating once again its vital role in the health of our nation’s economy,” said Vilsak. “By serving on these committees, they have the opportunity to provide their expertise and knowledge to deliberations that in uence U.S. trade policy, ultimately helping to grow, innovate and out-compete the rest of the world.” Congress established the advisory committee system in 1974 to ensure a private-sector voice in establishing U.S. agricultural trade policy objectives to re ect U.S. commercial and economic interests. The U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Of ce of the U.S. Trade Representative jointly manage the committees. Advisory committee members provide advice and information to the Secretary of Agriculture and the U.S. Trade Representative on negotiating objectives, positions and other matters related to the development, implementation and administration of U.S. agricultural trade policy. The ATACs offer technical advice and information on speci c commodities. This appointment requires secret security clearance. These members will serve until June 9, 2015. “This is both a great honor and opportunity for Ms. Sanchez and a great bene t for the sugar and sweetener industry,” Coker said. Sanchez is the senior director of corporate communications and public affairs. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 After 37 years of service, with 22 as an administrator, Mrs. Karen McDermott has decided to return to the classroom and make way for new leadership. We are thrilled to still have Mrs. McDermott’s expertise in the classroom and love for GDS, while welcoming in a new era of elementary enrichment for our Glades Day family. A Glades Day School alumnus herself, Mrs. Amie Pitts is an accomplished educator in the Glades and brings with her many years of experience as well as a true love for GDS. Glades Day is unique because of its rich traditions, and it is her intention to continue to carry on with these important traditions and practices, while moving into the future with positive change to ensure the success of our students and of our school.

Farmers in the Everglades Agricultural Area (EAA), south of Lake Okeechobee, achieved a record-setting 79 percent phosphorus reduction in the water leaving the farming region -more than three times less phosphorus than the state requirement. The South Florida Water Management District, the agency tasked with Everglades restoration, announced today that the EAA’s on-farm Best Management Practices (BMP), developed by university scientists in collaboration with farmers, are a resounding success. The District praised EAA farmers for being proactive and often implementing more BMPs than what is required. “We’re proud of farmers’ accomplishments cleaning water, with an average phosphorus reduction of 55 percent over the last 16 years,” said Barbara Miedema, vice president of the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative. “When the BMP program was rst envisioned in 1991, no one imagined it would be this effective over the long term. It’s an example of the kind of success that can be achieved in partnership with scientists and farmers, who roll up their sleeves to get the job done.” In addition to improving water quality using high-tech sustainable practices, more than $200 million has been paid by farmers for the construction of Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) to further clean water. Built on 60,000 acres of former farmland, the STAs have reduced phosphorus to the Everglades Protection Area by an additional 1,400 metric tons. That’s in addition to the 2,400 metric tons of phosphorus removed by farmers. “Along with being stable economic drivers and job providers for our state and county, farmers have a long track record of supporting and implementing Everglades restoration,” said Gaston Cantens, vice president of Florida Crystals Corporation. “Today’s record-breaking results are another example of the proven success of our sustainable practices and demonstrate the signi cant role our farms continue to play in protecting and preserving the Everglades ecosystem, as the design was intended.”Florida Agriculture Fast Facts:Supports 766,000 jobs Generates $100 billion annual economic impact in Florida Responsible for $3 billion in tax revenue for local and state government Florida Sugar Industry provides 7,000 direct jobs & 23,500 indirect jobs Florida Sugar Industry generates $2 billion economic impact About Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative and Florida Crystals Corporation Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative and Florida Crystals Corporation are two Palm Beach Countybased sugar producers and owners of the world’s largest sugar company, American Sugar Re ning, whose global production capacity is 7 million tons of re ned sugar annually.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 Allegations of poor conditions, payroll problemsBY JUAN LOPEZ e SunFeces on the wall of the women’s bathroom. Lunch meat that was being used well past their seven-day period at the deli. Equipment used to prepare food not being cleaned properly and, in some cases, not at all. These reports and much more were discovered at one location: the Clewiston U-Save. The Belle Glade location, owned by the same group, is not far behind. People remember when the long standing icon in Clewiston, U-Save, came to town. They remember how clean and comfortable it was to shop there. When it was rebuilt and housed in its current location, nothing should have changed. Yet, things did change. Sparse to empty shelves. Poor quality of fresh meat. Cooling units breaking down causing food to spoil. These are some of the conditions that have been reported over the past year by the Division of Consumer Services, a branch of the USDA. For those who do not remember, U-Save was bought up by new owners S&O U-Save Group LLC from B&B Holding Group last year. The S&O Group is headed by Oqab Abouqab, who owns and operates fteen supermarkets and convenience stores in central and southwest Florida. Since that sale was completed, conditions have further deteriorated and allegations have surfaced that employees are not receiving their w ages on time and still being expected to work. One Clewiston employee has spoken up, with the condition of anonymity, about the deterioration of the stores. This employee wants nothing more than things to change for the better. “We are told that we won’t be closed. We just need to get things xed and running as they should be,” the employee stated. “Right now, that is a lot to ask.” The employee, who will be referred to as “he” for the story, explained what the staff has been putting up with and why the shelves have been bare more often than full. Apparently, deliveries are not coming in on a timely manner because the corporate of ce has reportedly cited a lack of funds to make the purchases. Since their credit has been shot with some companies, others have been asking for cash on delivery for all orders, the employee said. As he spoke, a supply truck had come with stock to re ll the lunch meat case, w hich had not been lled since their last order w as received seven weeks ago. Orders, he explained, are always being made to replace the smaller, fast-moving items and larger orders are made to resupply the shelves in general. The Belle Glade location has been experiencing the same problems as well. “There should not be a gap as long as seven w eeks,” he said. “Customers are always coming in looking and they’re not nding much.” Another constant dif culty has been equipment breakdown, speci cally the coolers. The coolers that hold the ice cream and other frozen treats has been broken for a number of weeks and the milk cooler has been broken down as w ell. “The milk cooler is constantly breaking down and it has been responsible for the complaints about sour milk we get,” he said. “Right now, we are having to hold our dairy in the meat locker in back.” The Belle Glade store has had numerous health code violations regarding its milk and diary products and their storage. One inspection in January of this year noted how milk was still being sold far beyond the expiration date listed. For some readers, that would raise sanitary and cross-contamination concerns. According to Sterling Ivey, from the Florida Division of Consumer Services, the past two health inspections have rated the store ‘poor’ and ‘fair’ respectively. “We have been out there and we did nd various areas that we found unsafe or unsanitary,” he said. “A rating is given not based simply on one area but the entire store in general, from the store front to storage areas.” Ivey stated and gave copies of the past three reports concerning the store. The oldest was a customer complaint that stated that human feces were covering the wall of the women’s restroom. When investigated, management did acknowledge that it had happened and took steps to clean up the mess when the customer left. U-Save was inspected on August 15 of this year and received a poor rating for numerous infractions. Most of the infractions had been noted at the deli, more than 20 of them. Some included: improper cleaning/encrusted food left on various deli implements, food stored at improper temperature, equipment stored with water still in them after cleaning, grease build-up on the re suppression system, etc. As a result, several stopuse orders were issued until all infractions were addressed. “Stop-use orders are exactly what they sound like. No sales or operations can be done in that area or with that product until the area has been cleaned and taken care of,” Ivey explained. The follow-up inspection that took place on Aug. 29 issued the store a fair rating. More than half of the deli notations had been addressed and several stop-use orders were lifted. But, other infractions and problems remain. The Belle Glade store has had far more problems than the Clewiston location. In the past three health inspections this year, they have been rated fair, poor and fair. Stop-use orders and destruction orders were given out for many products, including rice and beans that had been infested with weevils and rotten milk that was still being sold. Mold was found in multiple parts of the store and the overall dirtiness of all the shelves and storage units were enough to have orders to clean issued. As of their last inspection, Aug. 3, the store had cleaned up a bit and had addressed several infractions but a laundry list still remains of changes that still need to be made. Toping off the list of problems is the fact that the few remaining workers are not even being paid on time. “I can say that within the past year, our paychecks have been on time only four times,” the employee said. “It’s sad. You don’t know when you will get paid each time.” He continued to explain that no explanation is being given as why the payroll is constantly delayed. The only excuse given is that as long employees are paid within ten days of their pay due date then nothing is wrong nor illegal. Even with all this happening, the employee is still hopeful that situation can turn around. “People do come in and want to buy from us,” he said. “But, if we constantly don’t have what they want and how they want to nd them then things will get worse.” Unfortunately, some customers do not agree. One customer commented that the store is constantly dirty and she has purchased rotten meat that appeared to have been repackaged. Another stated that he does not go there anymore because they never have anything he needs and what they do have is more expensive than other stores in town. So, while some have hoped that U-Save will stay in business, others are expecting a store that has served the community for years to slowly die out -a sign on the front door may be the harbinger: “No more cash back on any transaction!” Multiple attempts were made to contact S&O group owners and an area manager, but phone calls and e-mails were not returned. During one attempt, an S&0 secretary asked simply: “Is this concerning a late invoice?” Salvation for U-Save?

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee September 15, 2011 Keep Palm Beach County Beautiful, Inc.(KPBCB) welcomes help from volunteers for the International Coastal Cleanup scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 17, with additional dates in September, October, and November in Palm Beach County. The cleanup is sponsored by The Ocean Conservancy worldwide and is coordinated locally by KPBCB. As part of this effort across the globe, individuals take part in the International Coastal Cleanup (ICC) to remove trash and debris from the world’s beaches and waterways, identify the sources of that debris, and change the behaviors that allow it to reach the ocean in the rst place. During this signature event each September, hundreds of thousands of volunteers from countries all over the world spend a day picking up everything from cigarette butts and food wrappers to lost shing nets and major appliances. Because trash travels to the ocean by way of storm drains and waterways, they don’t just work along ocean beaches; these dedicated volunteers navigate through mud and sand along lakes, canals, and rivers, often working far inland on roadways and neighborhood streets. Many walk, while others set out on boats. Thousands more don scuba gear to seek trash below the water’s surface. People of all ages, from any walk of life, can participate. Friends, families, neighbors, club members, school classes—all kinds of people turn out on one day to work together in spirit across many time zones. Working shoulder-to-shoulder, the volunteers in the Cleanup’s global network not only pick up trash, they record every item they nd on standardized data cards. KPBCB compiles the data locally and the Ocean Conservancy compiles and analyzes the data worldwide each year, and publishes the world’s only item-by-item, location-bylocation snapshot of marine debris in an annual report. By understanding what is out there, we can work together on solutions. Last year, during the 25th anniversary of the Cleanup, in Palm Beach County alone, over 4,000 volunteers picked up over 29,000 lbs of trash from Palm Beach County beaches, lakes, and participating neighborhoods. From the information provided by volunteers, the source of most of the trash and debris comes from shoreline and recreational activities (52.54%) and smoking-related activities (37.29%). This year in Palm Beach County, local volunteers will gather at multiple locations on Sept. 17 with additional dates in September, October, and November. Most cleanup events begin at 8 a.m. with some alternative times. For a list of sites, dates, and times, please visit www.keepPBCbeautiful. org or call 561-686-6646. Community Service Hours will be given. Volunteers should pre-register by contacting the volunteer coordinators listed for each site. Trash bags and other supplies will be provided and volunteers are encouraged to wear hats, sunscreen, sturdy shoes and bring water. Free ICC tshirts will be given to volunteers while supplies last.

Managed b y Marshall Heights Resident Council Locations for the International Coastal Cleanup the condition of the overall water supply system in the Glades. “One gallon of every two we send out is lost to the muck,” said Stiles. “We didn’t have a clue how bad the system was.” In many areas of the cities, ancient piping from the days before the cities themselves were incorporated can still be found throughout. The piping, which he explained was carted in by horse and buggy, was not designed to last forever. A recent street project in the Glades found much of this piping seeping an alarming amount of clean water back into the muck. The cost to replace the infrastructure to the 18 homes on the street? Approximately $72,000. What the GUA has done is to use that basic formula to identify a $100 million shortfall for infrastructure work for all of the Glades region. There is also the issue of water theft. To date, GUA has been involved in identifying as many as 200 cases of water theft. “It’s still going on today, I’m sad to say,” said the director, who also takes a direct approach to non-paying customers. “We shut off hundreds a month for non-payment.” Compounding the situation is the need to revisit the rate structure set up in the Glades. In a meeting this past Wednesday, Stiles was planning to formally ask the GUA board to approve a $17.28 monthly surcharge to water customers in the Glades to stabilize operations. With the heavy political cost of raising rates in a largely impoverished area already paying the highest water rates in the county, Stiles was certain the measure would be rejected. The resulting action would leave the board unable to approve a budget heading into the next year. What is the answer? That there is no answer. “Our choice then is no water?” asked Judy Sanchez, who listened to the presentation. “Somebody will provide water,” Stiles responded, but unable to identify who that would be. If the board fails to adopt a sustainable plan for action, then the threat is that of the county assuming the water operations and the GUA dismantling – an unlikely scenario, the director said – or the intervention of the state governor in shoring up the bleeding. But even that is in question, with the GUA maintaining a quasi-governmental form that may or may not be eligible for the emergency help afforded by a Florida statute. Despite the nger-pointing which has been the center of the discussion of the issue, the GUA has come a long way, Stiles assured. “We’ve done a lot of good in two years and we don’t get credit for it,” said Stiles, apologetic that the authority has not done more to vocalize the successes amid the challenges. Among them, the authority has secured $18 million in grants, consolidated the debt load of the three cities – a $50 million gure – and implemented 40 projects totaling nearly $20 million in just a couple of years. Confronted by the seemingly insurmountable problem of restoring solvency to the Glades water authority is a task that Stiles does not take lightly. A look at the numbers reveals the substance of the issue, but does not suf ciently deter Stiles from moving ahead with the exploration of viable solutions. “I am hopeful,” the director said. “The good people out here deserve high quality water. We can’t give up.” W aterContinued From Page 1 SUBMITTED PHOTO The issues faced by the Glades Utility Authority are substantial, but its director promises to look at every possible alternati ve to keep the organization operational.

Ihad 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 confortable 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 recommended Dr. Harrouff and his professional and friendly staff to many of my friends.

Typically, the best treatment for otherwise healthy adults with acute bronchitis, colds and most types of sore throats is to simply help alleviate symptoms, according to new principles. All too often antibiotics are prescribed for adults with upper respiratory infections caused by viruses, which do not respond to antibiotics meant to treat bacterial infections. Antibiotics are appropriate to ght bacterial infections, however, taking antibiotics for viral infections, such as a cold, most sore throats, acute bronchitis and many sinus or ear infections will not: Will not cure the infection Will not keep other people from getting sick Will not help you or your child feel better The excessive use of antibiotics among outpatients has contributed to the emergence and spread of antibiotic-resistant bacteria in many communities. Increasing antibiotic resistance among common pathogens is leaving fewer effective drugs available to treat infectious diseases. When resistance develops in rst-line drugs, the remaining alternative drugs may be less effective, more expensive and more dif cult to administer. Dangers of Antibiotic Resistance Colds and many other upper respiratory infections, as well as some ear infections, are caused by viruses, not bacteria. If antibiotics are used too often for things they can't treat (like colds or other viral infections) they can stop working effectively against bacteria w hen you or your child really needs them. Antibiotic resistance is when antibiotics can no longer cure bacterial infections. Widespread overuse and inappropriate use of antibiotics is fueling an increase in antibiotic-resistant bacteria. So there may come a time when you or your child really needs an antibiotic for a bacterial infection, and it may not work. Did you know? Antibiotic resistance is one of the world's most pressing public health threats. Antibiotics are the most important tool we have to combat life-threatening bacterial diseases. Increasing antibiotic resistance is compromising the effectiveness of antibiotics. Patients, healthcare providers, health departments, hospital administrators and policy makers must work together to employ effective strategies for improving appropriate antibiotic use which will ultimately saving lives. What can you do to help? Do not demand antibiotics when a doctor says they are not needed. Do not take an antibiotic for a viral infection like a cold or most sore throats. Do not take antibiotics prescribed for someone else. The antibiotic may not be appropriate for your or your child's illness. Taking the wrong medicine may delay correct treatment and allow bacteria to multiply. If your healthcare provider prescribes an antibiotic for you or your child: Do not skip doses. Do not save any of the antibiotics for the next time you or your child gets sick. Remember, just because your healthcare provider doesn't give you an antibiotic doesn't mean you aren't sick. Talk with them about the best treatment for your or your child's illness. When you or your child has an upper respiratory infection, here are some things that your healthcare provider may suggest: Over-the-counter treatment options that may help you or your child feel better Increase uid intake, (drink lots of water) Get plenty of rest Use a cool-mist vaporizer or saline nasal spray to relieve congestion Soothe a throat with ice chips, sore throat spray, or lozenges (do not give lozenges to young children).

BY STATEPOINT If you’ve ever wondered where your hard earned money is going, it’s time to take a more thoughtful approach to your spending. According to a recent Federal Reserve report the total U.S. consumer debt was $2.43 trillion. To help, non-pro t organizations like the Family Credit Management Services (FCMS) are assisting people in becoming debt-free by teaching them to take control of their spending. You can take advantage of the organization’s free “Stop. Think. Save!” kit, which is available at www.stopthinksave.org and offers creative tips for saving money and smarter spending. The kit includes a variety of helpful material, including a credit card sleeve that reminds you to take a moment before spending, a coupon wallet, a spending plan you can personalize and information on saving big and shopping smarter. Stop Wasting Money A latte every morning may seem like a worthwhile indulgence, but is it worth nearly $1000 a year? Small expenses add up, so the easiest way to build savings is to cut them out. Grow this number in your savings account, rather than your credit card bill. Think Before Spending We live in a world where there is an opportunity to make impulse purchases every time you go online. Shut off your “purchase auto-pilot” and actively think about your spending. Before reaching for plastic ask, “do I need this or just want it? Is there a better way to spend this money?” Don’t lose sight of big goals. Put a picture o f that car you are saving for in your wallet and b y your computer to help you stay goal-oriented. Shop Wisely Clipping coupons is a no brainer. Some people disregard the task, because of the effort involved. But it can be painless if you know what to look for. Some of the best coupons are found on grocer y store websites. Local newspapers also are great for coupons. And shop in bulk when possible. “No matter how small the savings, every extr a effort is worth your time,” says Michael McAuliffe, president of FCMS. “In these dif cult times, no savings method can be overlooked. Finding ne w ways to save is crucial.” Remember Benjamin Franklin’s wise principle that “a penny saved is a penny earned.” By setting priorities, choosing wisely and saving regularly, you can meet nancial goals you never thought possible.
