It's a win-win deal for county!


By Donna Storter
MOORE HAVEN The Glades
County Board of Commissioners
held a special meeting called to
discuss possibly purchasing 72.5
acres on SR 78 and U.S. 27 for a
site for a future correctional facili-
ty/offices and a commercial devel-
opment park.
Currently an option for pur-
chasing this land is held by Glades
Correctional Development Corpo-
ration (GCDC), which has been in


deliberations and negotiations for
several years to build a facility to
house immigration detainees,
informally known as'"the INS proj-
ect". GCDC is a non-profit Florida
corporation whose goal is to con-
struct the facility and contract with
federal Immigration and Customs
Enforcement (ICE) formerly
known as INS, to provide institu-
tional housing for immigrants
detained by ICE, and to also within
the construction complex provide
a new jail facility for Glades Coun-


If the county purchases the
property for approximately
$770,000, the county can lease
about 22 acres to GCDC and
receive more in lease income than
the county is currently receiving
from ad valorem taxes as the prop-
erty is currently in agriculture use.
The other 50 acres will be a prime
location for commercial or maybe
light industrial development, as
the needed infrastructure is avail-
able, being water, sewer and


Hmm, hmm, good: Good food, good times


major highway artery access.
The GCDC Board of Directors,
Alvin Ward, chairman, Bobby
Flanagan and Nita Shirley mem-
bers, gave their united concrete
support of the concept, noting that
Peter Swan, bonding agent for
Bergen Capital who will provide
the means for funding the con-
struction, has endorsed the con-
cept of GCDC leasing the site from
the county, anticipating it will
enhance the attraction for bond
purchasers.


Glades County electorate
approved the project by referen-
dum ballot several years ago
knowing that the county will not
be liable for the operation of the
detention center and its contract
with ICE, while at the same time
utilizing an opportunity to lessen
the county's liability for the current
jail facility, which is in disrepair and
cannot meet state corrections
inspection standards.

Softball tourneys to benefit Nail

CLEWISTON Softball
enthusiasts throughout the
region have been given a great
opportunity to help raise much.
needed funds for charitable caus-
.es by simply doing something
they love play softball.
A benefit softball tournament
and barbecue will be held at the
Five Acre Field at the Elks' Lodge
property on Francisco Street on
Saturday, Oct. 8. The benefit will
feature softball and a cow flop
contest, and a barbecue dinner
that will be provided for a $10 per
plate donation. The dinner plate
will include ribs, macaroni salad,
green beans, and rolls.
This fundraiser is being held
to benefit Robert Nall, who was
severely injured in a hit and run
motorcycle accident. The tragic
accident caused severe internal


and spinal cord injuries, and
resulted in paralysis, to Mr. Nall,
who was airlifted to.Tampa for
emergency treatment.
Doctors have told him he may
never walk again, but family and
friends have not given up hope
that miracles do happen, and are
raising money for physical thera-
py and rehabilitation, as well as
support systems and medical
costs for Robert and his family.
The city of Clewiston got into'
the act of softball fundraising as
well. The Police Department
hosted a softball tournament for
the victims of-Hurricane Katrina
and Hurricane Rita. The tourna-
ment was held at .the Clewiston
city ball fields on Saturday, Oct. 1,
and involved teams from Belle
Glade, Clewiston, and Moore
Haven.
On Sunday, Oct. 9, additional
fundraising will be held for hurri-
cane victims at the John Boy


Auditorium in Clewiston. The
Benefit Concert of Patriotism and
Praise will begin at 7 p.m.
"There are heroes among us
- everyday people who make
our lives better just by doing their
jobs, going the extra mile, and
caring about others. We have
seen and experienced much of
these-special people in our lives
and in the weeks following Hurri-
canes Katrina and Rita," said Pas-
tor John Hicks of the First United
Methodist Church of Clewiston,
who has helped organize the
event and is available for infor-
mation leading up to theshow.
The program will feature spe-
cial music, heartwarming testi-
monies from "Hurricane Ground
Zero", and praise music to cele-
brate the stories of human sur-
vival from the storms. A love
offering will be taken for the hur-
ricane victims.

This sports complex serves
the school's Athletic Department
as well as city and club spon-

be divided with two entrances
so that admission can be gained
separately when multiple events

Echols stated, "It's major, but
it's an investment in our children
and I'm asking this, not just for
my district, but we have people
who participate in the organized
sports in every one of your dis-

hosts antique



treasure trove


HOLLYWOOD, Fla. South
Florida has long been known for
yielding buried treasure, includ-
ing millions of dollars in gold
and silver unearthed from the
Atocha off the coast of Key West.
On Saturday, Oct. 22, in what
could be music to many collec-
tors' ears, Gary Sohmers, who
appears as an appraiser in Col-
lectibles, Memorabilia, and Toys
on the Emmy-nominated hit
PBS television program
"Antiques Roadshow," holds
court at the Seminole Hard Rock
Hotel & Casino from 11 a.m. to 4
p.m. He will evaluate and
appraise the personal rock and
roll treasures hidden away in


South Florida attics, curio cabi-
nets and memento drawers.
According to Susan O'Con-
nell, vice president of Marketing,
it's a terrific opportunity to be a
part of rock and roll history.
"Who knows? Maybe some-
one has a long lost Beatles' tape,
a neckpiece worn by Elvis, or a
Woodstock wonder. Gary
Sohmers will offer his personal
insight and appraisals to give
people an idea of what their col-
lectible is worth," she said.
Sohmers is known in the col-

Pop Culture." He operates Wex

The gifts that I have been offered


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph, D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I received a notification that I
had won a prize; a car, two
round trip airline tickets, a wide
screen color television or cash.
The certificate guaranteeing that
I had won came with a tele-
phone number, which I was to
call. The last time I received
such a certificate (it was for a
new Pontiac) I called them as
requested collect.
I figured that if they could
afford to give me a new Pontiac,
surely they could afford my tele-
phone call to claim the prize.
What seemed to be a young per-
son answered.when the opera-
tor told them they had a collect
call. The person had to check
with someone, apparently,
because there was a delay and
some whispering, it seems my
collect call caught them -off
guard. Then the young lady told
the operator that they did not
receive collect calls. I wasn't sur-
prised. I had my doubts about
the offer in the first place. I


believe the adage that goes. "If it
sounds to be too good to be
true, it probably is."
They reminded me of some
people in the Bible. There is a
parable in Matthew's gospel
about a landowner who planted
a vineyard and left it in the care
of some tenants. He sent his ser-
vants to collect the rent due to
him. They were beaten and one
was killed. He sent others but
they were treated the same way.
Finally, the landowner sent his
son, saying, "They will respect
my son." But no, the son is killed
as well. (Matthew 21:33-43)
They do it in hopes of having
the vineyard to themselves even
though it is not theirs. Unscrupu-
lous "giveaway" programs also
do so in hopes of getting some-
thing not rightfully theirs -
requesting money for the pay-
ment of "taxes" or "delivery
fees" or some other charge that
extracts money from persons on
the false hope of a windfall that
is never really there to be gained.
The Biblical parable asks,
"When the owner of the vine-
yard comes, what will he do to


'those tenants?" Those who
were listening to Jesus tell him
that they will come to a miser-
able end. I keep getting offers to
involve myself in literally mil-
lions because someone in some
part of Africa has died an
untimely-death and no heirs can
be located. The message comes
almost daily on my computer
about how someone is a repre-
sentative or family member of
their dear deceased who wanted
his inoney to go to a worthy
cause and, (guess what!),
they've selected me!
Figuring it may be of interest
to the Fraud Department of my
Internet server, I forward it and
received a polite thank-you note.
I hope enough others will do
likewise so they can get back to
the host and say, "cut it out!" In
reality, it would be very simple
if someone has something for
me, just enclose the check in an
envelope and mail it. I will take it
from there.
I also get. telephone calls
about special offers, fantastic
deals, bargains that will never be
offered again and once- in -a life-


time opportunities. I tell them to
mail me the information and I
will look at it. Sometimes I
receive information and then
reflect on it. Other times, noth-
ing is coming and I figure it is
just'as well.
Then, once in a blue moon,
there comes a really free gift.
Sometimes it is a small sample
or token, sometimes something
needed, sometimes something I
can pass on to someone else.
The gift is really a gift and the
meaning of the giver is clear. I
am reminded that my vocation is
to give away what I have -
that's the purpose of the min-
istry, we give freely and uncondi-
tionally as we have relieved;
that's a joy and a privilege and a
blessing. There is a passage in
Romans that talks about the dif-
ference between real giving and
evil; how real giving is uncondi-
tional, free, without expecting in
return. That's God giving and
that is what we can do to help
others; and what fills our hearts
whether we're the giver or
receiver too.

Former graduate


returning home


When Bill Fisackerly, IV grad-
uated from Clewiston High
School in 1981, even though
Bill's father was the pastor of
First United Methodist Church of
Clewiston,
becoming a
preacher
was the fur-
thest thing "
from his '
mind, but .
that is exactly .
what he }
became. If e
you attended Bill
Clewiston Fisackerly
High in the
late 70s and early 80s you may
know this former Clewiston
Tiger as Bill Fisackerly.
But even if you were not one
of his fellow students you may
know Bill but by a different
name. In the early 80s he started
a Christian rock program on
Sunday mornings on WAFC-FM
106.3, but since "Fisackerly" is
such a mouthful and hard to
understand over the air waves
he chose the "air name" of "Alan
Williams" using his first name as
his last and his middle name for
his first.
While Bill was attending high
school in Clewiston, he also
worked at the Clewiston News,
first in the darkroom and pho-
tography department, then later
on the presses and in delivery.
After high school, he attended
Florida Southern College where
he initially majored in Broad-
casting with the intention of
becoming a Christian disc jock-
ey after completing his bache-
lor's degree.
It was part way through his
undergraduate program, he felt
the call to ministry and switched
to a double major of Broadcast-
ing and Religion. After he gradu-


ated from Florida Southern. in
1984, he married Kim Butcher
from Miamir, and the newlyweds
moved to Atlanta where he
earned a Master of Divinity
degree from Candler School of
Theology at Emory University.
Bill and Kim have three children
Bethany, Allyson, and Wil
(William A. Fisackerly the V).
Bill has served as a pastor for the
United Methodist Church in Del-
tona, Sopchoppy, and Ochlock-
onee Bay Florida.
In 1995, Bill was appointed
to Estero United Methodist
Church in Estero Florida and has
been their senior pastor ever
since moving to Estero. Since
moving to Estero Bill has helped
four different members of that
congregation to discover and
answer their own calls to min-
istry one of whom is Pastor
Thom Street who serves as the
pastor of First United Methodist
Church of Moore Haven.
Reverend Bill and Pastor
Thom have decided to switch
pulpits for one Sunday so this
Sunday, Oct. 9 Reverend Bill will
be preaching at' First United
Methodist Church of Moore
Haven and Pastor Thom will
travel to Estero to fill the pulpit
there.
Services at First United
Methodist Church of Moore
Haven are at 10 a.m. and the
church is located at 300 Avenue
L. and Third Street in Moore
Haven. There will be a potluck
lunch and fellowship time after
services and whether you went
to school with Bill, knew him
from church, or heard him on
the radio and would like to hear
him preach on Sunday you are
welcome to be a part of worship
and the fellowship time after
services.


From the Executive Editor


Taxpayers find rollback rate confusing


By Katrina Elsken
Executive Editor
It's budget time the time of
year when city, county and region-
al governments finalize the mill-
age rate for the new fiscal year.
Then, in accordance with state
law, they advertise their increase
as compared to the "rollback"
rate.
These advertisements tend to
be confusing to the average tax-
payer, whose only experience
with "rollback" often has to do
with television commercials for
department stores.
The government version of
rollback does not mean you get a
discount.
The rollback rate is based on
the amount that would have to be
collected in taxes to fund the pre-
vious year's budget, based on the
current property values.
However, local governments
are not funding last year's budget
- they are funding this year's
budget. And budgets do tend to
increase each year in response to
higher prices for electricity,
increases in salaries, increases in
fuel costs, etc.
So the rollback rate means they
look at the current property value
assessments, and then figure out
what they would have to collect in
millage to fund the 2004/2005
budget. Then they advertise the
2005/06 millage as an increase or
decrease over this "rollback" rate.
Millage is a term used to
describe ad valorem or property
taxes. One mill equals $1 in tax for
every $1,000 of property value.
The "rollback rate" informa-
tion is not particularly useful to
most taxpayers and in some cases
it can be downright confusing and
misleading.


For the homeowner, there are
two ways that property taxes can
increase. One way is if local gov-
ernment raises the millage rate, so
the homeowner is paying more
taxes per $1,000 of property value.
The other way taxes can
increase is if the assessed taxable
property value is increased. Sky-
rocketing prices for home sales in
your neighborhood can mean
your property value can increase,
even though you did not make any
improvements.
Advertising the rollback rate
does not really give the homeown-
er enough .information to deter-
mine if their taxes are going up
and if so, exactly what is happen-
ing to cause their tax bill to
increase.
It is possible for tax millage to
increase and be advertised as a
decrease over the rollback. It is
possible for tax millage to
decrease and be advertised as an
increase over the rollback.
For example, imagine City A
has total property values of $10
million. In 2004 they levy 8 mills,
which brings in $80,000. A large
factory is built, increasing total
property values to $15 million. So
the city officials set the tax rate at 6
mills, which brings in $90,000.
The rollback rate would be the
amount of millage it would take to
raise $80,000 based on property
values of $15 million 5.33 mills.
So a tax rate of 6 mills would be
advertised as an 11-percent
increase over the rollback rate,
even though the actual millage
rate decreased.
For another example, consider
City B. In 2004 the mythical City B
had total property values of $100
million, and levied 5 mills in taxes,
to bring in $500,000. But in 2005,
the city's widget plant and several


surrounding businesses burned to
the ground, cutting taxable prop-
erty values to $50 million. To make
ends meet, the city council votes
to double the tax rate to 10 mills to
bring in $500,000 in ad valorem
taxes. This means the homeown-
ers will see their tax millage dou-
ble. However, because total prop-
erty values decreased, the rollback
rate comparison shows this as a
zero-percent increase.
How can you tell what the gov-
ernment budgets will mean to
your tax bill? Find out the current
taxable property value of your
property. In many counties, you
can do this online. If you disagree
with the amount the property
appraiser has assigned to your
property, you have the right to
appeal to the adjustment board
that meets once a year to review
such cases.
Once you know the taxable
property value, determine if you
qualify for homestead exemption.
To qualify you must own the


home, it must be your primary
residence and you must be a legal
resident of Florida (voter registra-
tion is one way to confirm this). If
you qualify for homestead exemp-
tion, you do not pay taxes on the
first $25,000 of property value.
To find out how much your tax
bill will be, divide your taxable
property value by 1,000 and multi-
ply by the millage rate. For exam-
ple, if your home is valued at
$125,000, and the city tax rate is
set at 10 mills, with the homestead
exemption, you would pdy $10 for
every $1,000 of property value.
This would mean you would pay
$1,000 in city taxes.
Don't forget that there are
many taxing agencies that include
your area and ,you have to pay
property taxes to each one. You
may be charged for city, county,
school board, water manage-
ment, mosquito-control district
and drainage district taxes. Each
taxing authority will set its own
millage.

Dinner Island dove season postponed


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) postponed Dove Season
on Dinner Island Ranch and
Okaloacoochee (OK) Slough
Wildlife Management Areas
(WMAs), according to hunting
and game managers. Both dove
fields are closed for the first
hunt, Saturday, Oct. 1, to comply
-with federal baiting laws, but at
this time only Dinner Island
Ranch WMA. is closed for the
second hunt, Saturday, Oct. 8.
Signs are posted on these areas
to remind hunters of this post-
ponement.
Weather and wet conditions
delayed the planting of these
fields, and some areas needed
replanting. Thts replanting
spawned concerns about bait-
ing, which forced postponement
to comply with federal baiting
laws. FWC area biologists will
monitor both Dinner Island and
OK Slough WMAs and reopen
them as conditions allow.
The dove permits are free
daily quota permits and refunds
aren't necessary.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
regulations state that an area is
considered to be baited for 10
days after removal of the bait. It
is unlawful to take or attempt to
take migratory game birds by
the aid of baiting, which


includes placing, exposing,
depositing, distributing or scat-
tering salt, grain or other feed


that could lure birds to, on or
over an area or hunting on or
over any baited area.

per as space permits.

I HAVE AN IDEA: I saw in the last issue of the Glades County Demo-
crat that Moore Haven has been chosen for a Main Street Project grant
and ideas are being sought for a poster or something along those lines.
I have one! Show the old downtown buildings all fixed up but, in the
background lets have a mountain of debris and waste with little stink
lines coming up from it. The caption should say, "Welcome to Moore
Haven the worse smelling town in south Florida! We're so proud of
our downtown and our wonderful regional landfill." Honestly, if the
regional landfill does become a reality, I believe the Main Street Project
grant is nothing but a major waste of money. How can you beautify an
area with Miami/Dade County trash sitting right next too it?

DRINKING AND DRIVING: Show me a person who drinks and I will
most likely show you a person who drinks and drives. After a few
drinks, most of us think we can drive better. Because of pressure
brought on by Mothers Against Drunk Drivers, and the advent of cell
telephones in almost every car, the chances of getting away with
drunk driving is practically zero. Remember, even worse than a DUI is
a charge of vehicular manslaughter. Take heed.

NOT SO PERFECT WORLD: In a perfect world, all residents in the
path of a hurricane who don't have transportation or other resources
to evacuate, could be taken out by residents who do have these
resources. Every vehicle could be filled to its legal capacity. In the real
world, however, the latter group would be at the mercy of the bad guys
who would inevitably be included in the other group. Most of them
would have several hundred dollars in cash and everybody would
know it. Of course, it could be the other way around.

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc-Savvy. I'm a bit con-
cerned with the latest news about
some virus that is spreading from
horses to dogs. From what I heard,
some dogs have even died as a
result. How serious is this virus?
What is it? Do dog owner's in gen-
eral have to be concerned? Thanks
Doc, Myron and Ethyl Moses from
Lake Worth.
A: Dear Myron and Ethyl. I've
been getting a lot of calls and ques-
tions about this virus, and it seems
like many people are getting a bit
scared and confused. It is very
important to know the truth behind
this virus, so instead.of including a
second question, we're going to
dedicate this week's column to
"Influenza Virus Strain H3N8".
This virus is basically a flu type
of virus causing upper respiratory
disease. Influenza strain H3N8 is a
horse flu virus that is showing simi-
larities to another virus, that has
caused canine deaths in several
Florida greyhound racetrack facili-
ties. Recent study at the University
of Florida has shown close similari-
ties between these horse and dog
viruses, so that it is suspected that
the virus has jumped species! This
jump is very rare it usually takes
many strains of mutation for an
influenza virus to spread this way.
Influenza is not something
which dogs commonly get, but it
has been seen in horses for
decades. Dogs get kennel cough or
bordetella instead. The greyhounds
affected presented initially with
.kennel cough signs, but they just
got sicker, and had very high infec-
tion counts in their white blood
cells.
These outbreaks in the grey-
hound kennel community actually
started in 1999, and although there
have been recent attacks, it does
not play a concern for the dog


Doc Savvy
owner in general. There has been
testing in the general canine popu-
lation where 97 percent have
shown antibody resistance to this
flu. So, that means that dogs have
been exposed to it, and have not
become ill. It could be that grey-
hounds may be more susceptible
due to poor genetic variation due to
inbreeding, and a poor immune
system.
Also there is no evidence to sug-
gest that it may spread to humans.
It is being watched closely by the
CDC, as historically a few other
viruses that have jumped species
have had some tragic conse-
quences. For example: Avian flu,
SARS, and West Nile virus. These
three have all jumped species to
humans.
I know there have been many
rumors and unconfirmed Internet
tales of massive dog die-offs -.
don't believe everything you hear!
Get the facts! Hope that helps, take
care, Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com, and check
out your answers weekly in The Pet
Corner. Be sure to tune into The
Savvy Vet Show each Thursday at
10:30 a.m. on 93.5 FM The Big
Dawg.

Letters to the Editor


Landfills and
solutions
Dear editor:
Discussion: It seems like every-
one is more concerned about
housing density and growth than
they are about being the landfill
capital of Florida. We have people
telling us landfills can be safely built
and operated. We have people
telling us that if a big hurricane hit
us the debris created would fill up
every operating landfill except for
the Okeechobee landfill and then it
would only have a portion of it's
capacity left. We have people
telling us that if Glades County had
a regional landfill then we would
be in the best position to capitalize
on the money to be made from a
landfill because it would be the
only one available in the future. We
have people telling us that would
be a most lucrative position to be
in.
What they have not told us is,
"What is the downside?" When I
see pictures in the aftermath of a
hurricane I see relief workers wear-
ing masks. Can I assume that they
are making a fashion statement or
are they wearing the mask for a
purpose other than fashion? If the
purpose is other than fashion, then
what is the purpose? If the purpose
is other than fashion, why would
we want to cart the crap that is
making people wear masks and
consolidate it here in the "landfill
capital" of Florida? If it has the abili-
ty to make people wear masks in
the disaster area will not the same
thing happen at the end of the line
here in the "landfill capital" of Flori-
da? What is the magic that we have
that will solve the problem here in
the "landfill capital"? Will the mil-
lions of dollars that we get from a
regional landfill make the problem
go away? Should we be the only
regional landfill left in South Florida
- what routes will all the trucks
bringing in the filth and stench be
using? Should we be the only land-
fill left in South Florida, there will
reportedly be quite a few truck-
loads of trash being emptied into
the landfill every hour. That means
there will be an almost constant
line of trucks every day on every
road leading to the landfill. Com-
pare the numbers with the num-
bers of dump trucks, that we see
every day hauling a substance that
has no odor. What can we expect?
There was an advertisement
that was on the airwaves a number
of years ago that just the mention of
the "punch line" will immediately
identify the product to every person
that hears it. That punch line is as
true a statement that can ever be
made about any of the problems
that face our society every day of
our lives. "PAY ME NOW, or PAY ME
LATER". The analogy cannot be
any more perfect. It is stating that
the cost of prevention is much
cheaper than the cost of repairing
the damage. It is stating that there is
no magic solution. It is stating that it
is an ongoing problem as long as
we live.
What is the solution to our trash
dilemma? It is not going to go
away. It is with us forever. There is
no "cheap" solution. It is "pay me
now, or pay me later". Whether or
not anyone wishes to act upon the
solution is up to the. taxpayer and
the voters. The people that pay no
taxes could care less because it is
not going to cost them no matter
what course of action is taken. Until
the persons paying the bills say
enough is enough our leaders will
attempt to make our area the
"landfill capital" of Florida. I simply
ask "Why is New York and New
Jersey and Toronto, Canada
(Toronto into the United States)
exporting as much trash as they


possibly can outside of their geo-
graphical regions at a much higher
cost than it would be to keep it in
their own backyard? Why is Collier
County with their average home
costs now over a half million dol-
lars trying to dump their trash into
the "trash capital" of Florida,
Glades County? Why is Palm Beach
County refusing to start another
landfill in their county?
The solution to the landfill prob-
lem in the long run is going to be.
beneficial to the state of Florida and
to the rest of the country. Energy
costs are now at an all time high
and are going to rise even more.
Pay me now, or pay me later. We
could have reacted much sooner
but we did not. Industry has proven
that the cheapest way to move
material around the country is by
rail. It does not matter whether or
not it is raw materials or finished
goods. Not by plane, not by car and
not by truck. If this were not the
case then you would find no indus-
try with a rail siding. Every major
manufacturing industry in the Unit-
ed States has a rail siding. Rail sid-
ings are typically in industrial areas.
These areas are ideal for transfer
stations to haul off the trash.
Where do you take the trash?
That is the $64 question. The most
likely area to take all of the trash
from the entire United States is to
one of the very dry, very stable, very
low population density areas of the
country. There are a number of
areas this side of the Rocky Moun-
tains that fit that description. An
area just 44-square miles (that is for
arguments sake about the size of
Lake Okeechobee) and 100 feet
high can handle every ounce of
trash generated by every person
and every industry in the Unites
States for the next century.
When we compare the costs of
building regional landfills especially
in environmentally sensitive areas
like Glades County and for that
matter ANYWHERE in the state of
Florida it is a mighty cheap and cost
effective way to handle the landfill
problem. When you take the cost
of building the infrastructure
around a regional landfill that cost
can be applied to simply upgrading
the rail system in this country. With
an upgraded rail system people
could travel cheaply and comfort-
ably by rail taking some of the traf-
fic off the highways conserving fuel
and increasing safety on the high-
ways. It will reduce road rage as
some of the trickle down effects of
being more efficient. 'About the
only major problem that will be
created by hauling the trash to a
concentrated area would be the
fact that the trains would go to the
central landfill full and will be
empty on the return trip. That has
some benefit believe it or not.
Florida is an "importing state".
That is saying that all the Wal-Mart
trucks you see entering the state of'
Florida leave with nothing. Florida
produces very little in the way of
goods that need to be distributed
around the country. Ask any of the
few manufactures that we have in
the state of Florida how much it
costs to get raw materials into the
state and how cheap it is to ship
things out of the state. The trucking
industry is fighting for anything to
back haul out of the state and it
makes shipping from Florida about
as cheap as you can get anywhere
in the country. On the other hand it
is about the most expensive state to
ship anything into. The empty trash
rail cars can be used to back haul
just about anything that can be
used in Florida even if it is only top-
soil and rock.
Learning to recycle is also
another step that must be taken in
order to help alleviate the trash
problems here in Florida. There are
many "trickle down" effects that

America needs real
energy independence
Dear editor:
With the average price of gaso-
line hovering at $3 a gallon in Flori-
da, it's time to transform America's
energy practices and explore alter-
native energy sources. This is not
only good for consumers, but con-
sidering that much of our imported
oil comes from the volatile Middle
East reportedly, about 11 million
of the 20 million barrels of oil we
burn each day is also vitally
important for our national security.
The recently enacted Energy Act
of 2005 gives billions of dollars in
tax breaks to oil companies for the
"exploration and drilling for new
sources of oil, both on federal lands
and offshore." But this "Energy
Act" is no real energy policy -
something our country sorely con-
tinues to lack.
Instead of giving billions of dol-
lars to the oil companies to
increase our dependency on oil,
we should instead invest in renew-
able fuels such as wind, solar, and
fuel from oilseed crops. We can't
fix our problem of oil dependency
by continued oil drilling. And we
shouldn't allow the current oil crisis
to develop into an environmental
one by opening up drilling to our
coastal waters and pristine lands
that deserve to be protected.
Rather than going down the
same worn-out road that enriches
the oil companies and jacks up the
cost of gasoline for consumers and
business, why not embrace a new
approach? Why not put Florida at
the forefront of blazing a new ener-
gy path the rest of the country can
follow?
We can start by enlisting the aid
of non-profit groups and universi-
ties that have been on the cutting
edge of promoting and developing
fuel-efficient technology. Much of
the research has already been done
- our job should be delivering the
energy savings from the drawing
board and laboratory to the public.
There's also legislation in the
state pipeline that delivers a sales
tax credit for Floridians who pur-
chase hybrid vehicles, a bill spon-
sored by democrats that promises
to put the Sunshine State ahead of
the nation and deserves everyone's
support.
We also need our federal repre-
sentatives to use tax and other
financial incentives to encourage
American auto companies to boost
the average mileage of gas engine
cars. Raising that average to just 36
miles per gallon could save nearly
two million barrels of imported oil
a day. Such a move could finally
give American automakers the
competitive edge they need over
their Japanese counterparts, espe-


cially with fuel-conscious con-
sumers.
More than 200 years ago, we
fought a war to gain independence
from one foreign power. We did it
by breaking the rules, rewriting the
terms of engagement, and tapping
good old American ingenuity.
It's time we did it again.
Senator DaveAronberg

One view of living now
To the editor:
We seem to be a spoiled lot -
nearly all of us from too many
standpoints. I have to believe this is
not a good thing for now or later,
for young and old alike.
Of course there's television, the
Internet, supersonic airplanes, cell
phones and the list goes on and on,
but it's not these inventions that are
the spoilers. It's the little things that
get us caught up and poured into
molds that scream "buy me, I'll do
the work for you." All we do is pay
the price. And most of us don't
even read the fine print spelling out
why we should not take the prod-
uct or use it. Ever notice the adver-
tisements, mostly on TV, of "magic"
products that will do wonders in all
sorts of ways followed by lightning
clips of possible side effects? It's not
unlike the fine-fine print on wrap-
pings of products we buy every
day. If there's any doubt, simply.
check a few of the thousands of
lawsuits in progress right now and
the doubt will disappear immedi-
ately.
Some truly wonderful discover-
ies and outstanding inventions
make daily living and working
much easier which are not to be
down-graded, yet there are hunr-
dreds and hundreds of so-called
improvements that we could all do
without pocket the savings and
live better at the same time. The
sad thing is our children are being
raised believing these tauted
improvements are the only way.
After all, they've never been
exposed to anything else. They
should, however, be given a
choice.
How many of today's brides
can make a pan of biscuits from
scratch?
It's easier, most say, to buy a can
of refrigerated or frozen biscuits.
Are these the same thing? Only in
name are they the same. There are
countless other examples: Gravies,
sauces, soups, desserts, entire
meals the list is endless.
Maybe the bottom line is some-
thing we hear little about in this
new century. -Common Sense.
Learning things our parents and
grandparents did that are soul satis-
fying, that make us less dependent
upon "going to the store". And
when we think of the preservatives
in almost every canned food we
buy, it's enough to make us wish
our stomachs were lined with
stainless steel. About buying time
in an exercise studio, Mama said, "I
ain't gonna let no studio instructor
tell me how to move my arms and
legs for exercise. See that yard out
yonder? I can walk it or work it just
.fine out in fresh air and it won't
cost me a cent."
It's still difficult to believe the
gigantic business of fancy labeled
bottles of plain water. Maybe we
should ask why?

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voted to reauthorize and
expand the Violence Against
Women Act (VAWA). Reautho-
rization of VAWA was included in
the Department of Justice Appro-
priations Authorization Act. The
VAWA was last reauthorized in
2000 and is set to expire Sept. 30.
"This legislation has made a
valuable contribution to declin-
ing rates of violent crime and its
reauthorization demonstrates
our continued commitment to
.strengthen enforcement and pro-
tect our families," said Congress-
woman Harris.
The VAWA, passed by the
U.S. House, extends core pro-
grams aimed at fighting domes-
tic violence, and makes improve-
ments to enhance the ability of
law enforcement officials to
domestic violence, dating vio-
lence, sexual assault, and stalk-
ing. The legislation was made


gender-neutral and expanded to
address the problem of violence
against children and youth by
including programs for college
campuses and assistance to
youth who are themselves vic-
tims of violence.
"This legislation, has been
effective and I am confident its
expansion is another positive
step forward to prevent future
violence and the detrimental
impact it has on families and our
society," concluded Harris.
The Violence Against Women
Act:
Reauthorizes levels of fund-
ing for rape crisis centers, and
efforts to combat violent crimes
on campuses.
Places special victim assis-
tants in local law enforcement
agencies to serve as liaisons
between law enforcement and
victims.
Improves access to courts
for teenagers.

Hendry County's traffic fatality
count for the year jumped once
again when two men died in relat-
ed accidents this past weekend.
The actual number is debated,
but it stands at 22-23.
In the first crash, which
occurred about 1:50 a.m., Oct. 2,
on SR 25 (U.S. 27) 0.9 miles north
of SR 80, a 1998 Ford traveling
northbound on SR 25 (U.S. 27)
veered off the road onto the east
side shoulder at a private drive-
way, then traveled across both
northbound lanes onto the medi-
an. The 1998 Ford continued back
and forth across the northbound


lanes before rolling over in the
outside lane. It then rolled over on
the east shoulder twice, coming
to a final rest on the driver's side
facing south.
A passenger was pinned
underneath the rear driver's side
where he expired. Three other
passengers were transported to
Lee Memorial Hospital by Air
Med. They were: Jose Escal, 44,
Fernando Lopez, 23, Faustino
Ramirez, 24. The identity of the
deceased has not been released,
pending notification of next of
kin. It is unknown who was driv-
ing the vehicle.
A fifth passenger died when he
was struck 'by another vehicle.

Pretrial release



considered


Program has
pros and cons
By Patty Brant
LABELLE .Prison over-
crowding has been an issue for
years, defying solutions. Hendry
County is considering imple-
mentation of one possible solu-
tion, the state's Pretrial Release,
Program. The idea has apparent-
ly met with some success in
Florida, according to 20th Circuit
'Chief Judge Hugh Hayes. The
judge appeared before the
Hendry County Commissioners
Tuesday, Sept. 27, to plead his
case for the program.
According to Judge Hayes,
Collier, Lee and Charlotte Coun-
ties are already using the pro-
gram. However, bail bondsman
Kirk Jameson brought attention
to the program as applied in
Atlanta, Ga. He presented ayideo

of a news broadcast that pointed
out numerous problems there,
including the release of violent
felons and a lack of monitoring
participants. Mr. Jameson
adamantly opposed the pro-
gram, saying the program has
"failed miserably in several differ-
ent states."
Judge Hayes countered that
this state is a lot more "conserva-
tive" in its use of the program. He
said the 20th.Circuit. program
extends only to misdemeanor
arrests and possibly some third
degree felonies no violent
offenders are considered. Eligi-
bility. requirements for the
Hendry program have not been
completed, but in general, those
-eligible may not be a flight risk;
may not have been arrested for a
violent crime; must have a job
and may not be considered a
"threat to the community."
In the pretrial release pro-
gram, the participant does not
have to post bond but they must
meet certain conditions for
release. If they do not comply
with those conditions, a deputy
is sent to pick them up. Current-
ly, when a person is arrested and
posts bond, a bail bondsman
goes out to retrieve them if they
do not appear for court.
The chief judge said the pro-
gram helps the judge by desig-
nating only one contact for infor-
mation on that prisoner.
County Judge Jim Sloan said
the program could be a."bridge
between releasing someone on
their own recognizance (ROR)
and bonding out." The choice is
up to the judge's discretion. He
explained that a pretrial release
officer would interview every-
one arrested before they go to
first appearance with the judge.
At the present time,, at first
appearance, the judge gets infor-
mation from the .booking sheet
and National Crime Information
Computer (NCIC), which is not
always complete. Often, Judge
Sloan said, the NCIC report does
not provide the disposition of pre-
vious arrests. The pretrial release
officer will double check on that


information, the individual's
employment, family situation, his
or her contact with the commu-
nity, the number of years they've
lived here and their potential
threat to the community. This
information will help the judge
decide- between his options:
Denying bond, setting bond, ROR
or pretrial release. This same pre-
trial release officer will monitor
the offender. The pretrial release
officer would work. Monday
through Friday, doing weekend
cases on Monday morning.
Judge Sloan said that the pro-
gram would not preclude eligible
people from bonding out before
first appearance, if they can.
Generally, in Hendry County
the offender would be required
to report in once a week. The
pretrial release officer will moni-
tor him or her by calling their job
site and making sure they are
updated on their court date. If
they do not show up for court,
the sheriff's office will send a
deputy to pick them up.
Judge Sloan said the specifics
have yet to be worked out. If
approved, the program won't
take effect until January 2006.
Time is needed to hire and train
someone for the position. The
program will also require an
inter-local agreement between
the court and the county. The
pretrial release officer would be
an employee of Cilcuit Court
Adrnministrativ Office, paid by the
counLr. The sheriff's oullfict Will
provide the space.
Judge Sloan said the program
has been used in other counties
and "appears successful enough
to maintain."
Judge Hayes told the com-
missioners that Sarasota County
saved $1 million in one year and
expects that Hendry County can
save some $200,000 the first year.
Judge Sloan agreed that the pro-
gram should be able to pay for
itself. Hendry County averages
10-15, sometimes 20 bookings
per day. It costs $55-$60 per day
to house an inmate in the
Hendry County Jail, with an aver-
age stay of about 45 days. That's
approximately $2,700 for one
inmate that could be saved
through the pretrial release pro-
gram. Overall, he expects the
program to be cheaper than
building a new jail.
Judge Sloan sited an example
of who might be eligible for the
program. Say someone is arrest-
ed for felony driving with a sus-
pended license. This person has
a family and a job, but can't
make bond and is not consid-
ered a threat to the community. If
they remain in jail, it will deprive
the family of income while
they're incarcerated. This person
might be a candidate for pretrial
release with some conditions,
like having a plan to get to work
(since they. cannot legally drive
themselves).
For the time being, the county
commission has postponed vot-
ing on the program to gather
information and work on the
required inter-local agreement.

unknown, left the crash and was
running westbound across both
northbound lanes of the highway.
He crossed the median, running
into the southbound lanes and
into the path of a 2002 Dodge,
driven by Ismeldo Fernandez-
Flecha, 32, of Hialeah. Mr. Fernan-
dez-Flecha's front left bumper
struck the victim, whose head
then struck the van's windshield.
Mr. Fuentes expired at the scene.
Glades County was also the
scene of a traffic fatality that day.
Joseph R. Risley IV, 33, of Muse,
died when his 2003 Ford pick up
truck left the road. FHP reports
that Mr. Risley was northbound
on CR 720, 13 miles east of Moore
Haven, when, "for unknown rea-
sons" his truck traveled onto the
east shoulder with its right
wheels. He then steered left to re-
enter the road and crossed the
road, traveling onto the west
shoulder. He then steered right
and his truck began to rotate
clockwise across the road and
onto the east shoulder where it
rotated sharply clockwise and


overturned to its right.
The vehicle came to a rest on
its left side, facing west. Mr. Risley,
who was not wearing a seatbelt,
suffered fatal injuries and expired
at the scene. The crash occurred
at approximately 2 a.m. Oct. 2.
In yet another serious crash
this past weekend, during the
early morning hours of Saturday,
Oct. 1 a 19-year-old man suffered
critical injuries in Glades County
on SR 25 (U.S. 27) south of SR 29.
It was another one-vehicle crash.
Steven Brandon Jackman was
transported to Lee Memorial Hos-
pital in critical condition.
According to the FHP report,
Mr. Jackman was southbound on
SR 25 at 5:08 a.m. when he fell
asleep. His 2003 Ford F250 veered
onto the west side shoulder, turn-
ing in a counter-clockwise direc-
tion, then veered back onto the
road, overturning onto its top.
The vehicle then slid and contin-
ued to travel sideways across the
two southbound lanes, coming to
a final rest on its top, blocking
both southbound lanes.

Section 2 Item 4, "Improvement of
community centers and recreation-
al facilities."
Commission Chairman Butch
Jones added, "We didn't raise the
money to put in an account and
draw interest, we raised the money
because that's what the people
asked us to do and agreed to in the
form of a referendum, and if you
expect the people to do that again,
you need to show them what
they're getting for their money's
worth."
Commissioner Bob Giesler
said, "It's a lot of money, but, I think
that it's time that we spend money
on the kids in Glades County."
Support for the joint effort was
expressed by Duane Watson, presi-
dent of Glades Youth Athletics,
who explained that they host little
girls' softball inner league with
teams coming from Okeechobee,
Clewiston, Belle Glade and
LaBelle; and the same with 13-14-
year old boys who play with Okee-
chobee, Belle Glade and Clewis-
ton.
He stated the complex is way
behind., especially in comparison
to other teams' nice facilities. He
explained games start in February
and go through June including play
offs, then men's softball starts, plus
the Dixie Girls, fall ball, little league,
t-ball, and with high school ball
games, and use of the complex has
become almost a year round deal
now, and attendance packs the
place. Commissioner Echols noted
that the outfield on the new ball
field will be constructed so that
soccer can be played (at different
times), as that is another sport that
is drawing increased participation.
Commissioner Giesler contin-


"I don't think you're going to see any diminish-
ment in the use of our youth, and in the growth in
our county in the fact that these people are going
to need places for recreation and play. It's not a
Cadillac program they're proposing, it's basical-
ly a grass roots. Wooden poles on the little league
field need to be replaced with concrete poles,
those are the same light poles (in use) when the
football field used to be across the street (where
the jail is now). Take all that into consideration,
take a ride around out there and take a look,
most of all, ride around some of these other com-
munities, which I've done a lot of (transporting
youth to athletic events) driving a bus."
Mike Pressley,
chairman of Glades County School Board


ued, "Is there anyway that the
school board and the city can kind
of help us a little bit on the mone-
tary end of this?"
Explaining the school board's
inability to provide monetary fund-
ing at this time and the history of
the existing complex and its multi-
use under joint ownership and
management, Mike Pressley, chair-
man of Glades County School
Board and past president of Glades
Youth Athletics, stated, "We have
developed over there on school
property taxpayers' property -
a T-ball field, a Little League field,
went into a joint agreement with
the city, county, school 20 years
ago when the jail was built. That
used to be the high school baseball
field and also used to be the city
recreation field, it was the only field
we had; everybody played ball on
it.
"We entered into a cooperative
agreement with the Chamber of
Commerce, city, county and the
school, built the Chalo Nitka
grounds; the city gave a block, the
school gave a block where the


Chalo Nitka grounds are. Our block
was where the softball field exists
now. The high school girls have a
softball field there, we put the lights
on, the grass, everything else and
also developed the area where
Russell is wanting the new ball field
built. Back in 1997 the Legislature
started a mechanism that restricted
on how we spend our two mil
money, our construction dollars;
the way we used to be able to
spend our dollars was the way we
built our baseball fields, softball
field, football field, the track, that
kind of stuff. What I'm trying to tell
you is our two mil dollars that we
could normally spend on athletics,
we can tweak that a little if we can
get it to be directly related to stu-
dent instruction," he said.
Pressley continued, "The reality
of the situation is that as far as free-
ing up a bunch of extra dollars
more than what we've already
spent over there, it's just not there."
He did say the school board had
actually appropriated about $10-
$15,000 for girls RE., storage that is
probably going to end up in a con-


cession stand there. He added,
"The killer on this thing on the total
dollars to me is the lights. We put
lights on the high school field for
less than $100,000. I'm hoping
when we bid that thing out it's
going to be a better bid."
Commissioner Echols stated, "If
that bid comes in lower we can
take that off the total dollars. These
are lights that operate on a lot less
cost for operations electricity-wise,
and the company monitors them
for 25 years; the maintenance on
them is substantially less."
Commissioner Giesler noted it
had been several years since the
board put money in of this sort
when close to $100,000 was spent,
including covers for the bleachers.
Commissioner Paul Beck asked
the school board, city and athletic
representatives how long would
this piece of property be used or
dedicated for the ball field and
were there future plans to build
schools there.
Pressley replied, "No sir, we're
not going to use that area. Recre-
ation is part of education and
you've got to have green area,
you've got have play area, and
we're committed, we have a 25-
year agreement with the city on
that facility. We do have plans to
use the area where they are playing
flag football we've had that on
the forefront for a long time. If we
end up making a K-8 school, or we
just have to have an elementary
school, we have that area beside
the pavilion behind the administra-
tion building, which is not really far
from that complex, which is north
of that complex that we dedicated
years ago. So to answer your ques-
tion, that is not in our five, 10- 15- or
20-year plan to use that area to
build schools."
He concurred with Commis-
sioner Beck's assertion, "Nor for
any other purpose other than
recreation."
John Ahern, councilman, city of
Moore Haven, explaining the city's
financial involvement, "You've


already wondered as far as the city,
what we have, really capital outlay
money we didn't budget anything
for that, but the maintenance, utili-
ties, this last year we hired another
man and it's not his primary job
but he goes by 'every night and
closes up the fields, cleans the rest-
rooms in the morning, probably a
half a man job, just keeping up the
ball fields during the season, but
the city is committed in trying to
make this work too. Utilities are
substantial when you take care of
the electric and water on that, but
we're committed, and it's a good
program and we want to do what-
ever we can to back it. Any ques-
tions for the city?"
Commissioner Alvin Ward
asked who was going to pay the
light bill on this one. Mr. Ahern
replied, "On this we haven't actual-
ly discussed it yet, it's something
I'm sure we'll be working real close
with the school how to do it."
Commissioner Ward then
asked, "And on the maintenance
on this deal?"
Commissioner Echols stated, "It
has to be a joint deal because the
type of mower to mow the grass
that's out there is different the
school has that type of mower, so
that's going to change a little bit",
adding, "where that grass infield is,
that way when the coaches come
up there to coach the kids, they
don't want to have to spend, half
their coaching time trying to clean
up the infield, rake it down, scrape
it down like they do now; it's hard
enough to find the coaches to do
these jobs, but when they have to
go up there and be the field man
and do everything and coach too,
it's too much."
Mr. Ahern added, "Some of the,
duties might change depending on
what it is, but the city is committed,
it had the people there to maintain
and do some, and the duties might
shift but we're going all be there
working together."
Norman "Sonny" Hughes, for-
mer Glades County School Athletic


Director, coach and Administrative
Director, and former president of
Glades Youth Athletics and current-
ly working with flag football pro-
gram, recalling his 37 yeai.s with
Glades schools and athletics, stated
that, "We are substandard in our
athletic facilities throughout our
county in comparison to the state
of Florida. If you complete this proj-
ect here at least our teenage pro-
gram and our JV baseball program
would have a place to practice, and
the teenage baseball program real-
ly needs a place to' play. I really
encourage you to take a step for-
ward, spend the money right now,
because it will be money that is
well spent in the future, it's not
money that's going to disappear,
but that money's going to be right
there where you can see it on a
year to.year basis.
"I don't think you're going to
see any diminishment in the use of
our youth, and in the growth in our
county in the fact that these people
are going to need places for recre-
ation and play. It's not a Cadillac
program they're proposing, it's
basically a grass roots. Wooden
poles on the little league field need
to be replaced with concrete poles,
those are the same light poles (in
use) when the football field used to
be across the street (where the jail
is now). Take all that into consider-
ation, take a ride around out there
and take a look, most of all, ride
around some of these other com-
munities, which I've done a lot of
(transporting youth to athletic
events) driving a bus," he said.
Recalling, former allocations
from the fund, and following dis-
cussion of the details of the propos-
al and estimated breakouts for
items, and noting the project
would require bidding, the board
voted 5-0 approving expenditure of
$399,324 from the one-cent sales
tax revenue for this proposed
sports complex project.

Sealed with a kick: Tigers outlast Newman 37-34


By Bill Fabian

CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Tigers came home for its first dis-
trict challenge against Cardinal
Newman, in its second of four
home games this year for the
Tigers. Coming off a tough, hard
fought battle against Glades Cen-
tral, the Tigers hoped to take out
some frustration on the Crusaders,
who brought a potent, physical
running and passing attack to Cane
Field.
Following an immediate three-
and-out by the Tiger offense, a punt
by quarterback Jared Combass
was returned 61 yards by the Cru-
saders' Anthony Nelson for the
score. Three plays later, the Tigers
offense was absolutely stunned
when a Combass pass was picked
off in the open field by linebacker
Conlan Kennedy, who pulled away
with the ball for a 27-yard touch-
down.
With just four minutes off the
clock, Clewiston found themselves
trailing 13-0, and the Crusader
offense had yet to step onto the
field.
Interestingly enough, the open-
ing series of events may have bene-
fited the Tigers, whose defense was
more than ready for the Crusaders,

The Tigers finally got a first

ing the ball with 16 completions on
31 attempts for a whopping 288
yards, including a 56-yard touch-
down to junior flanker John Melton
and another 53-yard score to senior


Lamarcus McGriff. It was said dur-
ing the game that 288 yards passing
was an all time Tiger single game
record.
Combass used virtually the
entire lineup of Tiger receivers.
Flanker John Melton snagged four
catches for 89 yards.

touchdown to Anthony Nelson and
running back John Wurster scored
on jaunts of 61 and 13 yards.
Clewiston's winning drive


began at their 37 with 5:07 on the
clock. Two complete passes and
four running plays got the Tigers to
the Crusader 14. Facing a fourth-
and-four, Tiger Coach Tommy Mor-
rell called timeout to consider
attempting the field goal.
Coach Morrell opted to put the
game on his combination quarter-
back/kicker and Combass, kicking
from the right hash mark, split the
uprights.
Coach Morrell said "Whew! We
got ourselves down two scores
right from the start and our boys
had to play catch up. I'm proud of
our kids. The Crusaders are a good
football team and they put nine
defenders in the box and dared us
to pass. Jared Combass had a great
night passing and our receivers not
only caught the ball well, they
added some big yards tonight after
their catches. It's great to get that
first district win."
Defensively, sophomore line-
backer Delvin Hughes had five solo
tackles. Linebacker Richard Pope
and cornerback Daniel Collins
each had a fumble recovery and
linebacker David Pope forced both
fumbles. Nate Brinkley blocked a
point after kick and linebacker Carl
Whitehead had a quarterback sack
for minus nine yards.


Pahokee wins, big Division 7-2B game against Hustlers


By Nina G. Wills

Big Game. Big Hits. Big Throws.
Big Win. The Pahokee Blue Devils
won a huge division game against
the Melbourne Central Catholic
Hustlers Friday night. The talk of the
first half was the absence of senior
quarterback and team leader
Robert Love. He battled a stomach
ailment, and did not enter the
game until the second quartet, but
backup quarterback Anthony
Sheppard did a fine job filling in for
Love.
The Blue Devils' defense shined
once again. The Blue Devils created
a new line of scrimmage dropping
the Hustlers for losses on numer-
ous plays.
On the Hustlers' second posses-
sion of the game, Rudy Robinson
sacked quarterback Suarez for a
six-yard loss. Pahokee received
excellent field position starting at
the Hustlers' 36-yard line. Running
back Ricky Gary ran the ball nine
yards on a toss-sweep play. On a
third and virtually inches, Anthony
Sheppard took it to the air throwing

a 26-yard TD pass to Tamarcus
Porter. Porter out jumped the
defender to get Pahokee on the
scoreboard. The PAT failed, but the
-Devils went up 6-0. The Hiustlers


faced a tough Blue Devils defense
all night. On the Htistlers next pos-
session, the Blue Devils made tack-
les for losses on three consecutive
plays. Micanor Regis and Jacoby


Love sacked the Hustlers quarter-
back for a second time.
Anthony Sheppard led the Blue
Devils to another scoring drive on
their next possession. Sheppard
made a throw to wide out Tanoris
Jones. On an end-around play,
Nikita White ran the ball to the Hus-
tler's 25-yard line. Janoris Jenkins,
with his lightning fast speed, ran
straight through the Hustler's
defense virtually untouched. Jenk-
ins scored the second Blue Devils
touchdown of the game. The
attempt at the two-point conver-
sion failed, but Pahokee took com-
mand of a 12-0 lead.
Love entered the game, in the
second quarter and on his fourth
play from scrimmage, Love threw a
perfect spiral to Nikita White for a
77-yard touchdown. Pahokee
entered the halftime break with a
18-0 lead over Melbourne Central
Catholic.
To start the third quarter, Paho-
kee moved the ball, but faced a
fourth down. The Blue Devils sent
out their punting unit. To every-
one's surprise, Vincent Cheves ran


the ball for 22 yards, giving the Blue
Devils a fresh set of downs. Paho-
kee once again moved the chains,
setting up a first and goal from the
six-yard line. Ricky Gary ran the ball
for the Blue Devils' fourth touch-
down of the game. Pahokee
increased its lead to 24-0. The Blue
Devils scored again on their next
possession with,a two-yard touch-
down run by Jenkins.
The Hustlers finally got on the
board with 2:16 to go in the third
quarter. Suarez threw a nine-yard
TD pass to John Walsh. The
attempt at the two-point conver-
sion failed. This was the first touch-
down allowed by the Blue Devils
defense in 14 quarters of play.
Needless to say, points are hard to
come by for the offenses facing this
Devils' defense. The Hustlers
attempted an on-side kick and
Pahokee recovered the ball. The
offense ran the ball three times
with Freshman RB Vincent Smith.
On a fourth arid four at the Hus-
tlers' 12-yard line, Pahokee could
not convert on the down and gave
the ball back to the Hustlers'.


Melbourne Central Catholic was
forced to punt deep in its own terri-
tory on their next possession. Mel-
bourne Central Catholic punted
eight times Friday night. Robert
Love led the Blue Devils offense to
its final scoring drive. Love connect-
ed with Martavious Odoms on an
18-yard touchdown pass. The
attempt for the two-point conver-
sion was good when Love threw to
tight end Un'Tavious Scott.
Pahokee defeated Melbourne
Central Catholic 38-6. The Devils
dominated the game on both sides
of ball. This was a game of big-time
players making big-time plays. The
offense came out strong this week
showing off its talented group of
receivers and taking advantage of
the Hustlers weak secondary.
Pahokee is now 4-1 on the season
and 2-1 in its division. Pahokee will
be facing Royal Palm Beach this
weekend. This game was resched-
uled due to Hurricane Katrina early
in September. The game will.be at
Royal Palm Beach at 7:30 p.m.


GC Raiders defeat



Pope John Paul


BELLE GLADE The Raiders
continue in their journey' to yet
another successful season, defeat-
ing their fourth opponent in a row
in a convincing victory last Friday
night.
Pope John Paul was helpless as
they tried to keep the Raiders at bay
by stopping offensive powerhouse
Deandre Holley, whose scoring that
night-brought the Raider win home.
Pope John Paul came out strong
in the first quarter, scoring 11 points
and stopping the Raider offense,
but that effort would not last. Not a
team to stick around for a defeat,
Glades Central shot back in the sec-
ond quarter, scoring a dozen points
of their own to assume the lead
going into the second half. Holley
-L-scored off of a 13-yard touchdown
run before connecting with Tarus
McKinley with a 42-yard pass for a

touchdown in the second quarter.
Holley scored again in the third
quarter with another touchdown
run from 13 yards out, as Pope
John Paul responded with a touch-
down of its own to even the score
going into the final quarter.
With the game on the line, the
Raiders stepped up to the plate to
deliver Pope John Paul a stunning
defeat. Holley spurred his team-
mates to action, scoring the first
touchdown in the fourth off a one-
yard run. Aston Samuels followed
suit, with a 13-yard touchdown
run. La'Von Towns capped off the
victory, with an eight-yard run of his
own to end the night.
The Raiders won the game
36-18.
The team prepares for its next
game tomorrow against Dillard
High School.

LAKE OKEECHOBEE
REGULATION SCHEDULE STUDY OF THE
CENTRAL AND SOUTHERN FLORIDA PROJECT
FOR FLOOD CONTROL


'I ~


Tuesday, October 11, 2005
7:00PM Presentation
Following presentation, open for public comment

Location: John Boy Auditorium
1200 South W.C. Owens Avenue
Clewiston, Florida 33440

The purpose of the meeting is to present the Lake Okeechobee Regulation
Schedule Study and the potential,improvements to the Water Supply and
Environment Schedule (WSE) and to give all interested individuals, groups and
agencies an opportunity to express their views and ask questions. ,

The Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is intending to
prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Lake
Okeechobee Regulation Schedule Study (LORSS). The current WSE schedule
was the preferred alternative in the LORSS Final Environmental Impact
Statement in July 2000 for the regulation of Lake Okeechobee. Recent
.scientific modeling suggests that the regulation schedule could be improved to
allow greater flexibility in achieving optimal lake levels and optimal discharges
to various downstream parts of the Central and Southern Florida systems.

Public comments will be taken until November 11, 2005. Comments can
be submitted to U.S, Army Corps of Engineers, Attn: Nelson Colon, Planning
Division, 701 San Marco Blvd., Jacksonville, Florida 32207 or by email to

Lady Gators on a roll; sweep Summit Christian


By Mark Young
The Lady Gators broke out the
broom and swept district rival
Summit Christian out of the build-
ing with a dominating three-game
victory Sept. 29 at home.
Glades Day came into the dis-
trict contest with a bit of momen-
tum after defeating Lake Worth
Christian just two days earlier and
while the victory was considered
an upset, the Lady Gators dominat-
ed the action with a game one vic-
tory of 25-19, lost game two 25-13,
but pulled out back to back 25-21
victories to secure the match.
Junior Alleigh Schlechter domi-
nated the net with 14 kills and
sophomore Danielle Sly had a stel-
lar game with a dozen kills, four
blocks, and served up a pair of aces
in leading the team in service
points with 18. Sophomore Natalie
Harville had nine kills, while senior
Ashley Baughman denied the Lake
Worth Christian hitters five times.
Sophomore setter Andrea
Browder also had 18 service points
with a pair of aces and added 14
assists while sophomore Erin McK-
instry returned from injury to dish
out a team leading 18 assists.
Recovering from injuries, the
Lady Gators are finding themselves
on a roll and the momentum
gained with the victory over Lake
Worth Christian, a team with a 9-3
record, carried over into their dis-
trict game against Summit Christ-
ian where the Lady Gators took the
match with victories of 25-13, 25-
12, and 25-19.

brief comeback bid, but an ace
from Harville and a kill from senior
Heather Daglion saw the Lady
Gators launch another run, but it
was a seven-point run on their next
service possession that broke the
game open for good. Daglion
stepped to the line to pick up a half
dozen service points, which
include an ace, but Baughman lit
up the net with a pair of strong kills
and had plenty of help from
Schlechter and sophomore middle
hitter Danielle Sly, with both players
picking up key kills on the run.
The Lady gators went up 16-6
before exploding into another
seven-point run with Sly going up
for a pair of kills and Baughman
picking up an ace to give the Lady
Gators a 22-8 advantage en route to
closing out the 25-13 win.
Summit Christian kept the Lady
Gators in sight for much of game
two, but Glades Day slowly
chipped out an 18-11 lead before
going on a six-point run late in the
match. Schlechter came on strong
with a three kills during the run and


junior Kalyn Rayburn added one
more to the totals as Glades Day
opening up 24-11 lead and had little
trouble closing out the game with a
25-12 victory.
Glades Day never trailed Sum-
mit Christian in this match and
game three was no exception as
aces from Browder and Daglion, as
well as kills from Baughman and
Sly put the Lady Gators up by a
score of 8-3 early in game three.
The green and gold squad extend-
ed that advantage to 16-5 with
Harville dominating the net and
Schlechter serving up aces.
Summit Christian had their best
offensive run of the match late in
game three and after trailing 19-8,
launched a six-point run of their
own to cut the lead to 19-14. Kills
from Schlechter and Baughman
put the Lady Gators 21-14, but
Summit Christian refused to give
up and fought back to cut the lead
down to four.
Glades Day had to fight for their
last few points, but were never

secure the match victory by three
games to none.
"Having our injured players back
is making a big difference for us
right now," said head coach Kathy
McReynolds. "This is a young team
and they are beginning to have con-
fidence in their ability and have, a
better understanding of the game."
The Lady Gators have one fresh-
man and four sophomores on this
year's squad and all four sopho-
mores are key contributors to the


juniors and only a pair of seniors as
this young team begins to pick up
momentum.
The victory over Summit Christ-
ian pulled the Lady Gators' season
record to 6-7, but more importantly
have a solid 4-1 district record.
The Lady Gators followed up
their recent victories with tourna-
ment play at Canterbury and came
away with a fifth place finish after
splitting the tournament with a 2-2
record to up their season record to


8-9. Glades Day lost to Highlands
Christian 25-17 and 25-21. They lost
to St. Stephens two games to one.
The Lady Gators took the first game
25-23, but lost the next two by
scores of 25-18 and 16-14.
Glades Day defeated Communi-
ty School, out of Naples, 25-15 and
25-18. They also defeated the host
squad from Canterbury by scores
of 25-15 and 25-19. Schlechter and
Daglion were appointed to the All-
Tournament.

Terriers' season hits the critical mark


Gators win
third straight
By Bill Fabian
NAPLES Moore Haven
Junior-Senior High School's foot-
ball expectations have begun to
fade into frustration, since the Ter-
riers fell in a crucial district match-
up against St. John Neumann in
Naples.
The Terriers dropped to 1-4
after an afternoon game at the
Naples school was lost 15-12 Fri-
day, Sept. 30.
The Terriers are certainly still in
contention, with two more district
games upcoming and a chance to
salvage a winning season, if they
can find a way to run the table in
games at LaBelle, and a three-
game home stand against Evan-


gelical Christian, Glades Day, both
district games, and the season
finale hosting St. Edward's of Vero
Beach.
Friday's game against Neu-
mann brought the Terriers to 0-1
in district play. Terrier Head Coach
Andy Ringstaff will have to lead
the Terriers into LaBelle seeking a
win against the Cowboys, who
have improved to 3-2 following
Friday's 41-13 win against Lemon
Bay of Englewood.
Glades Day 32,
Evangelical 12
FORT MYERS The Glades
Day Gators sloshed their way to a
third straight victory in a rain-
soaked game against district foe
Evangelical Christian (4-2, 0-1) on
Friday, Sept. 30.
The game was delayed for


more than an hour by lighting, the
second time this season the
Gators had to deal with severe
weather. The last time saw the
Gators go down in defeat against
Benjamin, a game Glades Day
head coach Craig Dobson said his
Gators should have won and
would like to have that one back.
But Friday's severe weather
didn't halt the Gators' who saw
their air attack dampened by the
wet weather, but not their steady
ground assault.
When the teams finally took
the field, the Gators struck first
with a 22-yard touchdown run by
Frank Lugo, who led the Gator
offensive weaponry with 135
yards rushing. The Gators added
to their first quarter run attack
with another 18-yard touchdown
by Ricky Reitz.
With Reitz's 129 yards rushing,


the Gator offense finished, the
night with 381 total yards, entirely
from rushing yards. The Gators
passing game was dampened by
the rainy conditions, as quarter-
back Brandon Smith was unable
to complete a pass on seven
attempts.
The Gators put the game away
with a 52-yard rushing touch-
down by wide out Andrew
Joseph.
With the victory, Glades Day
(3-1, 1-0) opened its district series
with the win against Evangelical.
The Gators will travel once again
to American Heritage, in Delray
Beach this Friday. The Gators have
two more district face-offs,
against St. John Neumann and
Moore Haven, in addition to host-
ing games against King's Acade-
my and Northwest Christian.

Tigers place seventh

in mega-tourney


By Mark Young
SEBRING The Clewiston
linksters headed to Sebring Sept.
19 to partake in the largest high
school 18-hole tournament in
the state and in their first ever
appearance in this mega-tourna-
ment, came home with a sev-
enth place finish.
There a total of 27 teams
competing in the annual Crutch-
field Sadie Hawkins Invitational
and the Tiger head coach Mike
Kemp called it, "a great experi-
ence for the greatly improved
2005 Tiger golf team."
Senior Brett Cameron, cap-
tain of the Tiger linksters, shot a
seven-over par for a 79 score to
lead the Tigers. Brandon Pena
wasn't far behind with an 81. In
total, the Tigers posted a score of
361, the best team score a Tiger
golf squad has posted in more
than fiveryears on an 18-hole
course.
The Tigers followed their
spectacular performance with a
road trip to Belle Glade to take on
the Gators of Glades Day arid
were just one shot off of picking
up their seventh victory of the
year. The Gators posted a 179 to
the Tigers' 180 and it was the sec-'
ond time in two years, the Gators
were able to edge the Tigers by a
mere stroke for the victory.
Clewiston and Glades Day
will meet again when they will
make up an earlier match post-
poned due to weather at an


unannounced time and date.
Pena, a sophomore on the
Tiger squad, posted a 40 on the
Belle Glade back nine to lead the
Clewiston squad. Cameron shot
a 44, junior Josh Adams shot a
47, senior Kyle Kirstein shot a 49,
sophomore Steven Westbury
shot a 52, and senior Stephen
Duplooy shot a 53 to round out
the Tiger scoring.
The Tigers ended their week
of play against their cross-county
rivals from LaBelle, with Lake
Placid jumping into the fray as
well. The Tigers swept both
squads to improve their season

USDA issues final



crop payments


GAINESVILLE Peanut and
upland cotton farmers will soon
be receiving 2004 crop counter-
cyclical payments of $81 per short
ton for peanuts and 13.73-cents-
per-pound for upland cotton,
announced Kevin Kelley, state
executive director for USDA's
Farm Service Agency (FSA).
Required by the 2002 Farm
Bill, final counter-cyclical pro-
'gram (CCP) payments for
peanuts and upland cotton are
made after the end of the mar-
keting year. The 2002 Farm Bill
provides for two partial 2004
crop CCP payments, one in
October 2004 and one in Febru-
ary 2005. The final weighted
average marketing year price for
.2004 crop peanuts, which was
.arrn,,urncedl on Aug. 31, 2005, is
$378 per short ton, $23 higher
than the $355 loan rate.
The payment rate for upland
cotton is at its maximum level
due to low market prices that
have averaged well below the 52-
cents-per-pound loan rate during
the marketing year. Because of
these low prices, USDA is able to
determine the final counter-cycli-
cal rate at this time. p.
Producers who accepted the
st and second partial CCP pay-
ments for 2004 crop peanuts
received $41:30 per ton and are
due an additional $39.70 per ton.
Producers who accepted the first


and second partial CCP pay-
ments for 2004 crop upland cot-
ton received 9.61-cents-per-
pound and are due an additional
4.12-cents-per-pound.
The counter-cyclical payment.
rate is the amount by which the
"target price" of each.commodi-
ty exceeds its effective price. The'
effective price equals the direct
payment rate plus the higher of:
(1) the national average market
price received by producers dur-
ing the marketing year, or (2) the
national average loan rate for the
commodity. The counter-cyclical
payment equals the counter-
cyclical payment rate multiplied
by 85 percent of the farm's base
acreage multiplied by the farm's
counter-cyclical payment yield
for each crop. Target prices are
mandated in the 2002 Farm Bill.
. The final 2004 counter-cycli-
cal payment rate for barley is 15-
cents-per-bushel. Those pay-
ments were made during July.
Producers will not receive 2004
crop counter-cyclical payments
for wheat, oats and other
oilseeds because their 2004
effective prices equal or exceed
their respective "target prices".
For more information on the
direct and counter-cyclical pay-
ment program, producers can
contact their local USDA Service
Center or visit USDA online at
http://www.usda.gov.

Conservation reS il program contracts expiring


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
ranchers can now re-enroll or
extend their Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring in 2007 through
2010, announced Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA). This effort fulfills the com-
mitment President' Bush made
last year to underscore the
Administration's commitment to
improving the environment and
protecting the nation's wildlife
habitat, water and natural
resources.
"We're offering farmers and
ranchers re-enrollments and
contract extensions so they can
take full advantage of the envi-
ronmental benefits of this pro-
gram," said Kelley. "Re-enrolling
and extending these contracts is
part of the president's plan to
fully use the nearly 40 million
acres of CRP to improve water
quality as well as wildlife habi-
tat."
In order to determine who
might be able to re-enroll, or
extend their CRP contract,
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) will use the Environmental
Benefits Index (EBI) that was in
place when the contracts were
first written. The EBI is a measur-
ing system that assigns point
scores to the contracts and then
nationally ranks all CRP land
enrollment offers.
Several environmental out-
comes factor into EBI point

scores such ":'" improving
wildlife habitat, -ater quality,
and air quality ar reducing soil

The EBI sdct are based
upon a 100 pe. tile that is
divided into five tr king tiers. In
the first tier, CRP tjducers rank-
ing in the top 2 Oercent of the
EBI can re-enroll their land in
new contracts ang farmers and
ranchers with wllands in this
ranking can revive contract
terms of 10-15 years.
.CRP producers ranking with-
fi the second tiet, between the
61-80 percent, caf extend their
contracts for five fears. Farmers
and ranchers ranking within the
third tier, 41-60 'percent, can
extend their CRP contracts by
four years. Those tanking in the
fourth tier, between 21-40 per-
cent, can receive three-year.
extensions. And thbse contracts
tanking in the fifth tier of the 20


percent of CRP producers can
extend their contracts by two
years.
As a result of this land conser-
vation program, many wide-
spread environmental benefits
have evolved. For example:
Reductions in soil erosion
are reaching more than 450 mil-
lion tons per year, thereby
increasing air quality due to less
airborne contamination.
Sediment and nutrient
runoff into rivers and streams is
improving.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service estimates that CRP is
increasing duck populations by
more than two million per year.
Ring-necked pheasant popula-
tions in Minnesota, North Dako-
ta, South Dakota and Ohio are
rising by 200 percent.
CRP is increasing grasshop-
per sparrow, lark bunting and
eastern meadowlark popula-


tions.
The long-absent prairie
chickens in Texas are reappear-
ing.
CRP is helping Columbian
sharp-tailed grouse recover.
New bird habitats in the
Northern Great Plains are
emerging.
Western state populations
of big game elk, mule deer,
white-tailed deer and pronghorn
antelope are increasing.
In spring 2006, FSA will write
to CRP producers with contracts
expiring Sept. 30, 2007, to dis-
cuss whether those contracts are
eligible for re-enrollment or
extension. Farmers and ranchers
will confirm their contract inter-
ests at that point and a compli-
ance check will be necessary.
Fifteen-year contracts expir-
ing Sept. 30, 2007, are not eligi-
ble for re-enrollment or exten-
sion. During the next several
months FSA will update the CRP
rental rates to better reflect local
market rates for cropland on
new contract re-enrollments and
will review cropland enrollment
limits on a county-by-county
basis.
CRP is a voluntary program
for agricultural producers, which
help them protect environmen-
tally sensitive land. Producers
enrolling in CRP plant long-term,
resource conservation covers
with USDA providing rental pay-
ments and cost-share assistance.
