Seminoles observe holiday


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
BRIGHTON -- Indian Day was
celebrated at the Brighton Reser-
vation on Sept. 26. It is an annual
holiday with a focus on Seminole
tradition and family unity. All
age groups participate in sports,
cooking and camp craft.
A fishing tournament and a
5k race for runners and walkers
was held early in the day, and the
unusual cool temperature was a
relief to participants. A section
for children was set up with an


inflatable slip and slide, rock
climbing and a giant triple sling-
shot. This kept the girls and boys
energized all day while parents
supervised and took photos.
Two cooking contests were
held for different age groups.
One was for the time honored
favorite, frybread; and the sec-
ond one was for pumpkin bread
which is also fried. Portable pro-
pane stoves were set up and
cooking oil was heated until it
started to smoke. The ingredi-
ents are few, but the results vary
slightly, according to the time


tested techniques used by differ-
ent families.
The texture of the flour prod-
uct is an important component
and the chefs pinch, pat and
form the batch into cakes before
dropping them into the smoking
oil. Even though the recipes have
a few simple ingredients, tech-
nique can define the outcome.
Several generations of Semi-
nole women from the same
family work side by side even if
they are competing in the same
age category. Daughters, moth-
ers and grandmothers keep each


other focused on getting the job
done. When the flour meets the
hot oil, delicious aromas fill the
air and hungry spectators swoon
just a little.
When finished, the frybread
can be any hue of golden brown,
and the pumpkin bread is deep,
dark orange. Break open the
bread to let the steam escape
and let it cool a little before you
pop it in your mouth. Experience
how the simple ingredients blend
together first, then when you go
for seconds you can add extras
like pie filling, butter, or honey.

Escaped inmate captured


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- An es-
caped inmate from the Glades
County Detention Center, Jean
Davide Lafalaise, was tracked
down and arrested in Tampa
about 4 p.m., Sept. 26, accord-
ing to a GCSO press release.
The inmate was taken into
custody with the assistance of
the United States Marshall's
Service.
Earlier, on Sept. 22, Jean Da-
vide Lafalaise, 26, had a normal
morning visit with two adults
and a small child. After the visit,
Mr. Lafalaise resumed a regular


routine for a recreation activ-
ity and climbed a chain linked
fence with razor wire.
He went across a roof and
met his two visitors who were
waiting inside a vehicle on the
parking lot.
The next day, the Glades
County Sheriff's Office report-
ed, that with the assistance of
the Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office, two of the suspects
were arrested in Belle Glade.
Shagwendlyn Fields, 21, and
Oniel Scarlett, 19, were charged
with harboring an escaped in-
mate.
The suspects are held with
no bond at the' Palm Beach


County Jail and waiting for ex-
tradition to Glades County.
According to GCSO, Davide
Lafalaise has a long criminal
history and is considered dan-
gerous.
The escaped inmate had
been waiting for a trial for
burglary, larceny, resisting law
enforcement and criminal mis-
chief.
At this time, information
with further detail about the ap-
prehension is unavailable.

Third tragic accident
within past year
along stretch of S.R.
29

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- On Sept.
29 at.6:33 a.m., a deadly accident +
involving a semi-tractor trailer
truck and a conversion van col-
liding at the intersection of S.R.
78 West and S.R. 29 in Glades
County was reported. All six oc-
cupants in the van were killed,
and the driver of the heavy truck
was taken to Lee Memorial Hos-
pital in serious condition, ac-
cording to a media release from
Florida Highway Patrol.
Ewing A. Saunders, 66, was
driving a heavy truck westbound
on S.R. 78 and approaching the
stop sign at the intersection with
S.R. 29. The van carrying six
people was northbound on S.R.
29 as it approached the intersec-
tion. Mr. Saunders' vehicle failed
to stop at the sign and struck the
van on its right side. Both ve-
hicles exited the pavement and
went over the west shoulder of
the road where a sign and fence
were struck.
The heavy truck jackknifed,
lost its load, overturned and
ended up in a pasture on its right
side. The van overturned and
came to a final stop on its right
side in the pasture. The truck

HRMC: About Prostate Cancer


Out of sight, out of mind if
you're like most men, that pretty
much sums up your relationship
with your prostate.
Ignoring your prostate isn't a
good idea, especially if you're 50
or older.
This small gland can cause big
problems in men as they get older
- most notably, cancer.
Other than skin cancer, pros-
tate cancer is the most common
type of cancer found in American
men.
In fact, one out of every six
men will develop prostate cancer
during his lifetime, reports the
American Cancer Society (ACS).
That's why you need to learn
about prostate cancer and why
you need to pay attention to your
prostate.
Risk Factors It's not known
what exactly causes prostate can-
cer, but there are certain risk fac-
tors that can increase your chanc-
es of getting the disease.
The greatest risk factor associ-


ated with prostate cancer is age.
Your chance of getting the dis-
ease increases quickly after you
reach the age of 50 about two
out of every three cases of pros-
tate cancer are found in men over
65, according to the ACS.
You may also be more likely
to get prostate cancer if you have
a family history of the disease, if
you're African American, or if you
have a diet high in red meat or
high-fat dairy products.
There is nothing you can do
about some risk factors such as
family history and race, but you
can help protect yourself from
other risks by practicing a healthy
lifestyle.
Screenings The ACS recom-
mends that you talk to your doc-
tor about the benefits and risks of
prostate cancer screening when
you reach the age of 50.
If you have high risk factors for
the disease, you should discuss
testing at age 45. If you decide to
be screened for prostate cancer,


there are two tests your doctor
may recommend: 1). a digital
rectal exam (DRE) in which a
doctor inserts a gloved finger into
your rectum to check the prostate
for hard or lumpy areas and 2).
a prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
test, in which a sample of your
blood is checked to determine
your PSA level.
DRE and PSA tests can both
detect problems with your pros-
tate. Neither test, however,, can
determine whether an abnormal-
ity is cancer.
You may have to undergo a bi-
opsy to rule out cancer.
Symptoms Prostate cancer
doesn't always cause symptoms.
When it does, they may in-
clude: difficultyurinating or hav-
ing the need to urinate often (es-
pecially at night), difficulty having
an erection, blood in your urine
or semen, or frequent pain in
your lower back, hips or upper
thighs.
See your doctor right away


if you experience any of these
symptoms.
You may not have prostate
cancer.
Other, more benign conditions
of the prostate can cause similar
symptoms.
However, if you do have can-
cer, you should be diagnosed as
soon as possible so that you and
your doctor can consider treat-
ment options.
Those options include watch-
ful. waiting, surgery, radiation
therapy, hormone therapy or a
combination of treatments.
To find out more'about your
prostate, visit one of the doctors
at Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
You can also go to the hospital
website to locate a physician by
accessing www.hendryregional.

God's Platform: Christian Unity


4GL4


,ADES PRIMARY CARE

im m--


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
In last week's column I prom-
ised to give you God's Platform
for Christian Unity.
Just as the Democrats, Repub-
licans and Independents have
platforms on which they hope to
get elected, God has a platform to
unite all believers in Christ.
This platform is found in Ephe-
sians 4:1-6.
Plank One ONE BODY
(CHURCH): Jesus promised to
build His Church (Matthew 16)
and He promised the gates of Hell
would not prevail against IT.
He did not say "churches" in
the plural, but "church" in the
singular.
The church is called "the body
of Christ" in many places in the
scripture.
It is composed of every person
who has accepted Christ through
Faith, Repentance, Confession
and Baptism (Immersion) who
continues faithful to Christ.


Plank Two ONE SPIRIT: The
Holy Spirit lives in the Christian (I
Cor. 6:19-20) to produce Christian
Fruit (Galatians 5:22-23).
Jesus received the Holy Spirit
above measure (John 4), the
Apostles and the household-of
Cornelius received the baptismal
measure (Acts 2, 10), the Apostles
gave Miraculous Spiritual Gifts to
believers in the first century of the
church (Acts 8:18, I Cor. 12), and
all immersed believers receive the
indwellingg presence of the Holy'
Spirit" when they are baptized
(Acts 2:38).
Plank Three ONE HOPE: The
One Hope of the Christian is the
return of Christ to receive him
unto Himself, "that where He is,
there we may be also." (John 14,
I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Plank 4 ONE LORD: Jesus
Christ is the One Lord. He has to-
tal authority in Heaven and Earth
(Matthew 28:18).
He is the ONE and ONLY Head
of His Church.
He is the Founder, Foundation


and Door of His Church.
"Neither is there salvation in
any other, for there is none oth-
er name, under heaven, given
among men whereby we must
be saved" (Acts 4:12).
Plank 5 ONE FAITH: The
world has many "faiths": Bud-
dhism, Mohammedism, Brah-
manism, Cofuscianism, Shinto-
ism, Judaism, Zoroasatrianism,
etc.
But the ONE FAITH Paul speaks
of is in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is the Faith that we must
confess (Romans 10:9-10) and
live by.
This One Faith was confessed
by Peter, the Ethiopian Eunuch,
and the faith required of those
coming to Jesus.
This One Faith comes by the
Word of God (Romans 10:17).
It is impossible to please God
without it (Hebrewsl 1:6)
Plank 6 ONE BAPTISM: When
you take all that the New Testa-
ment says about the Baptism of
all believers, you come up with:


Baptism is the "immersion in wa-
ter (Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4) of
a penitent believer in Jesus Christ
(Acts 8:37; Mark 16:15-16; Acts
2:38) for the remission of sins to
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
(Acts 2:38).
One is thus saved (Mark 16:16,
I Peter 3:21) and puts on Christ
through faith (Galatians 3:26-27)
and the Lord adds him to His
Church (Acts 2:41, 47).
He also "obeys the Gospel" (II
Thess. 1:8, Romans 6:3-6, 16-18).
Plank 7 ONE GOD: This is the
"Father" and that is how He is to
be addressed, according to Jesus
(Matthew 6:9).
We are to pray "in Jesus'
Name," since He is the "only Me-
diator between God and man" (I
Timothy 2:5).
This excludes Mariolitry,
Saints, etc.
Those who desire the Unity for
which Christ prayed (John 17:20-
21) and Paul pleaded (I Cor: 1:10-
13) will stand on God's Platform
for Unit'.

Limit animal handouts to the zoo


If you feed wild animals, you're
asking for trouble.
That's the message from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC).
"You're creating a hazard for
yourself, your neighbors and the
animals," FWC biologist Anni
Mitchell said.
"It's a thrill to have animals eat
from your hand, but you need. to
limit that experience to captive
animals."
Feeding wildlife can cause ani-
mals to become a nuisance and
can be .harmful to their health,
according to FWC wildlife biolo-
gists.
Most importantly, it can inter-
fere with their natural survival
instincts. FWC officials said feed-
ing wildlife does not help animals
and may actually harm them.
Also, it is illegal in Florida to
feed certain animals, including
sandhill cranes, bears, raccoons,
foxes, alligators and others.
Wild animals that get food
from human hands will start los-
ing their fear of people and their
natural ability to hunt or forage
for food on their own.
They may become aggressive
when they get hungry and do not
get fed.


In addition, the balance be-
tween food sources and wildlife
populations is delicate. In the
wild, animals produce as much
young as the food source can sus-
tain.
If other unnatural food sources
become available, such as human
handouts, animals may produce
more offspring, and that over-
loads the availability of natural
food sources, according to FWC
experts.
"If natural food sources be-
come scarce or are no longer
available, animals may starve,"
Mitchell said.
Fed animals may be "lured"
across roads to artificial foods
sources, risking dangerous en-
counters with vehicles.


Sometimes, humans uninten-
tionally feed wild animals. Pet
bowls, bird feeders or garbage
cans with loose lids can attract
animals and cause the same loss
of natural instinct as feeding them
intentionally, Mitchell said.
"Urban sprawl may put hu-
mans and wildlife in direct con-
tact, but it's best to enjoy wild ani-
mals from a distance," FWC bear
biologist Stephanie Simek said.
The FWC has a few sugges-
tions: Store pet food inside and
feed pets inside. If you must feed
your pet outside, remove the food
dishes and any spilled food im-
mediately after feeding.
Use bear-proof garbage con-
tainers and set them out the morn-
ing of pick-up, not overnight.

Understanding the difference


Between Wall-Street
and Main Street

Contributed by First
Bank and Trust of
Indiantown
Much information has been
swirling around the media sur-
rounding the financial crisis and
the government bailout plan.
We know that it can sometimes
be difficult to tell the difference
between what is happening with
big Wall-Street investment banks
such as Goldman Sachs and Le-
hman Brothers and an FDIC in-
sured community bank like First
Bank and Trust of Indiantown.
There are important differences.
Investment banks operate dif-
ferently from commercial banks
and thrift institutions. Their pri-
mary purpose is to facilitate the
sale of stocks and bonds. These
Wall Street firms operate as advis-
ers and agents for companies that


want to raise capital, often by is-
suing more stock or other securi-
ties.
Commercial banks and thrift
institutions take deposits for
checking and savings accounts
from consumers and businesses.
These deposits are insured by
the FDIC for up to $100,000 per
account and up to $250,000 for
retirement accounts. These banks
lend this money to consumers
and companies for autos, homes,
business equipment, etc.
Most recently the U.S. Trea-
sury Department announced an
unprecedented, voluntary one-
year guaranty program insuring
U.S. money market funds to stem
losses resulting from global fi-
nancial market turmoil. Addition-
ally we felt that it is important for
consumers to understand the key
differences between their money
market deposit account and a
money market mutual fund.
A money market mutual fund
is a short-term mutual fund that


invests in government securi-
ties, certificates of deposit, asset-
backed commercial paper and
other highly liquid securities.
Money market funds sell shares
to investors and earn interest
based on performance. However,
if the fund suffers a major loss,
the shareholder has no guarantee
that the investment will be repaid.
Until last week, these investments
carried no insurance. However,
the new guaranty program ap-
plies only to those money market
funds that pay a fee to join it, and
would only protect assets invest-
ed prior to Sept. 20, for a period
of one year.
A money market deposit ac-
count is an. interest-bearing sav-
ings account that typically earns
more than a regular savings ac-
count, but less than a money.
market fund. MMDAs are also
less risky than MMFs: they. are
insured by the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for
up to $100,000 per depositor per


insured bank and up to $250,000
for some retirement accounts,
Your FDIC insured community
bank.is still the safest place for
your money. According the Amer-
ican Banker's Association 98
percent of nation's 8,500 banks
are considered "well capitalized"
- the highest designation possible
- the possibility of your bank be-
ing taken over by the FDIC is "ex-
tremely remote.

yBeware of the unown black holes


Beware of the unknown black holes


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
On Sept. 8, the Large Hadron
Collider (LHC) was finally turned
on, and we weren't turned off -
which is a good thing!
The LHC is a seventeen mile
long circular tunnel designed to
smash together protons in a re-
enactment of the Big Bang.
Originally to have been built
outside Houston, the LHC moved
to Switzerland when a combina-
tion of fears, financial and other
concerns killed the U.S. project in
the mid-90s.
The Europeans picked it up
and ran with it.
The real miracle of this proj-
ect was not the bringing together


of two protons, but the bringing
together of eight thousand physi-
cists from eighty-five different
countries to build this enormous
machine.
There is one tiny little glitch in
all this good news and impressive
scientific advancement.
That is the nagging concern
held by some researchers that
this machine could cause the end
of the world as we know it.
Those who predicted this
doomsday scenario suggest that
if physicists succeed in re-creating
the "Big Bang," they might also
create a black hole.
This black hole, a sucking void
of anti-matter, will simply slurp us
in, cannibalizing our planet and
possibly taking the entire galaxy


with it.
The unfortunate truth is that
black holes happen in our lives all
the time.
There are frequent collisions
between opposing forces that
can slam us down and suck out
our soul if we let them.
It is one thing to experience
this brokenness in the form of
forces that ambush a large num-
ber of people like Hurricane Ike
or the recent economic Wall,
Street crisis.
But it is much worse when the
black hole threatens to take us
down personally, especially when
it's in front of the eyes of friends
and peers.
Come with me to a third grade
classroom.


Nine-year-old Johnny is sitting
at his desk and all of a sudden,
there is a warm feeling between
his legs and the front of his pants
are wet.
Fear-struck, Johnny can't imag-
ine how it could have happened.
When he looks up and sees
the teacher approaching with a
look in her eyes that says he has
been discovered, Johnny believes
his heart is going to stop.
As the teacher walks toward
him, classmate Susie is carrying a
goldfish bowl filled with water at
the same time.
Susie trips in front of the teach-
er and inexplicably dumps the
bowl of water in Johnny's lap.
Surprised but relieved, Johnny
repeats over and over to himself,


Regarding our current crisis


And other crises I
have faced through
the years

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was leaving a hospital one
day after making several calls
and was riding the elevator to the
ground floor.
As the door opened at one of
the lower floors, a lady asked if
I would step out and stand with
her for a few moments.
I imagine the way I dress spoke
to her about who I was and what
I represented.
I exited and we stood there.
Her face' told me something
was obviously wrong; not surpris-
ing in the setting where we found
ourselves.
I asked her if she wanted to
talk or pray about anything; she
said "no."
After awhile, she told me "I'm
all right now, thank you."
We rode the elevator in silence
to the ground floor and each went
on our way.
I don't ever recall seeing her
again; that's okay.
1 remember stopping at a
country gas station one night.
It was a long way from home
and I had just received bad news.
The station was about to close
and the clerk said, "You look like
you could use some coffee; just


take it, I was about to throw it out
anyway."
In the midst of my own sad-
ness and turmoil, someone was
kind and went out of his way to
ease a burden he did not even
know about.
I don't ever recall seeing him
again either; but he is remem-
bered for his simple act of kind-
ness and the difference he made
to me that night.
A man in transit came to my
office one day for a handout.
I had a few dollars to help,
shared it and told him where else
he might receive help on his jour-
ney.
This often happens in the life
of the clergy; there was nothing
special on my part and nothing
exceptional about him or the
plight where he found himself.
Months later, he returned and
said "Do you remember...?" Yes,
I remembered, and he filled in
parts of his reason for needing
help that was not shared the first
time.
He cried as he told me he had
just been released from prison
and was seriously considering
what he would have to do, return-
ing to a former life, and then not
having to do it.
I thought about how little I had
done for this person.
How little I did for someone in
a hospital one day.
How wonderful a man in a gas
station had been to me; I guess
he long since had forgotten it.


A simple act of human kind-
ness in the midst of turmoil in life;
so little and yet so much.
So many times what seems
like a small thing to one person
has great meaning to another.
In each of our lives, we are
called on to do many things that
seem "important"; on our jobs,
or in our homes, in our commu-
nities or as a nation.
Sometimes, in passing, a little
act speaks volumes about us and
makes all the difference to anoth-
er in a moment of need.
The small acts speak volumes
about us; what kind of people
we really are, what we really be-
lieve, whether we are trustworthy
or not, if we can be counted on
when the chips are down.
The Lord told His disciples
"He who is faithful in a very little
is faithful in much; and he who is
dishonest in a very little is dishon-
est in much (Luke 16:10)."
We've been hearing a lot lately
about our economic crises and
the difficulties we face as a nation
that will affect us all.
The size of our problems has
everyone wondering where it will
all end and how we each will be
affected.
Rightly so!
There seems to be no easy
or happy solution, no escaping
the fear of hard times to come,
no avoiding the impact that will
touch each of our lives.
As I thought about those who
have been a great help to me and


those who maybe I've helped, or
who have told me I helped; it was
not in the great things on my part
or theirs, but simple acts, things
that were almost unimportant to
me and maybe unimportant to
them.
On a grander scale, if we are
to be healed and helped, it may
be our simple acts toward one
another that will make the final
difference.
The great problems and cri-
ses will be there, and work out in
God's good time and His way.
They always have; there is no
reason to doubt that these times
will be any different.
In the interim, the crucial dif-
ference may be well in how we
respond to each other, how we
treat each other in hard times.
Luke tells us that our being
faithful with small things will lead
to trust with Heavenly things (ch
16:11).
We may have a part in solving
crises or healing after all. I cannot
do everything, but I can do some-
thing.
Imagine if everyone did some-
thing small; maybe great things
would get better after all!


"Thank you, Lord! Thank you!"
Now, instead of being the ob-
ject of ridicule, Johnny is the ob-
ject of sympathy.
The teacher rushes him down-
stairs and gives him gym shorts to
put on. The sympathy is wonder-
ful, but as life would have it, the
ridicule that should have been his
was transferred to someone else
- Susie.
Susie tries to help, but they tell
her, "You've done enough, you
klutz!"
At the end of the day, as they
are waiting for the bus, Johnny
sees Susie and walks over to her.
"You did that on purpose,
didn't you?" Susie whispers back,
"I had an 'accident' once, too."
"-we will walk with each


other, we will walk side by side;
and we'll guard each one's digni-
ty and save each one's pride; and
they'll know we are Christians by
our love, by our love. Yes, they'll
know we are Christians by our
love."
When love and compassion is
our mission, great things can hap-
pen.
Black holes can't be created
or sustained with the collision of
love and compassion.
People may not remember ex-
actly what we say, and they may
not remember everything we did,
but they will always remember
how we made them feel.
And that can help seal up the
black holes that try to form in
their lives.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog". role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

FWC visits local school
On Sept. 12, students in Mrs. Pam Woodward and Mrs. Alicia
Bell's Career Classes at Moore Haven Jr./Sr. High School were
treated to a visit from Florida Fish and Wildlife officers, David
Burnsed and John Greene. The two spoke to the students about
law enforcement responsibilities, and the career options that
are available. A favorite of the classes was seeing the crocodile
and alligator that the officers brought in as well as an airboat.
Assistant Principal, Beth Barfield said, "The students were
inspired by the officers, and Officer Burnsed and Officer Greene
took a lot of time to answer questions and encouraged the
students to do their best in school. Our students need to be
exposed to many types of careers, they need to know their are
many possibilities." "My students came alive knowing that being
a fish and game officer provided so many opportunities," Career
teacher, Alicia Bell said. Continuing, she said, "Several students
have become motivated by the visit, and they would like to
pursue a career as game warden." If you have a career you would
like to showcase please contact, Alicia Bell at 863-946-0811 or
Beth Barfield 863-946-0811.

How does your


The local County Extension
office has been asked by local
newspapers to try out a question/
answer column. So, here goes:

Garden Predators
Hi, I am pretty new to the area
and would like to start a garden
but have a problem with rac-
coons. Also, there are many birds.
How could I keep them out of the
garden? -Thank you, Jackie-
Garden predators are a grow-
ing concern. There are no sure-
fire ways to prevent this from
occurring, but our best gardening
minds offered these suggestions
that may work. Try using roll
fence screening that is 4-6 feet tall.
Stake it up with wooden tomato
stakes so the top edge is too loose
for critters to get over. Dig fencing
down a foot into the soil to dis-
courage the smaller ground feed-
ing critters like rabbits. Remove
any hiding places nearby your
garden that give wildlife a place
to hide. Hot pepper sprays will
discourage some wildlife from
eating your product, but remem-
ber to wash it off before eating.
Using a plastic open mesh netting
over the garden plants will often
discourage birds from landing on
the plants and reducing damage
from flying garden foes.
Live trapping may work, but
permission to release the varmint
on someone's private ground is
required, otherwise you will have
to destroy them yourself. Permits
to release wildlife on public lands
are not going to be issued. Fire-
arms are not allowed near other
buildings, but a large hungry dog
that can be fenced in your area
may challenge these uninvited
guests. You may have to resort to
planting a larger amount of seed
or plants and sharing your pro-
duce with garden guests if none


of these tricks work.

Sticky seeds
My lawn is infested with sand-
spurs. What can I spray to get rid
of them? Bob-
Sand spurs or sand burs are
the spiny seed of annual turfgrass
weeds. This is the time of year
that these one-year old grasses
produce these offending features
that help them spread to other ar-
eas. They fall to the ground and
get buried in the soil, and will
begin to germinate next spring
when the cycle continues. There
are two good ways to reduce the
number of encounters with these
prickly problems.
First, be sure you are main-
taining your turfgrass correctly;
that means follow the three good
rules for grass. (1) Don't mow
grass any shorter than 3-4 inches.
(2) Fertilize correctly, twice a year,
with a slow-release granular fertil-
izer with no phosphorus in it. (3)
Water correctly: no more than
half inch a week of either rain or
sprinklers. These steps will en-
courage a vigorous turf that will
crowd out the weeds.
If good grass rules don't do it,
its time for stronger "medicine" in
the form of weed killers. Products
like glyphosate (e.g. Rounduptm)
will not prevent seeds from form-
ing in the fall. Instead, plant to
apply a pre-emergent herbicide
in the early spring which kills the
little seedlings when they begin
to grow. Contact our office for
names of specific weed-killers
that will work for the type of grass
you have in your yard.

An early fall for Pecan
trees
I have a pecan tree here by
my house in Buckhead Ridge. I


gardeE

never saw these worms before,
they have taken all the leaves off
my tree, and their poop is rain-
ing down on my sidewalk and
roof. What can I do to kill these
creepy crawlies and save my tree?
-Wendy-
It took some detective work,
but I stumbled onto a caterpillar
that you were able to confirm is
the offending tree pest: the Wal-
nut Caterpillar Moth, Datana in-
tegerrima. The tan colored adult
moth lays clusters of small white
eggs on the leaves of pecans, wal-
nuts and hickories throughout the
eastern U.S. They begin to slowly
consume the leaves of these fa-
vored trees, and ignore other
species in the landscape. As they
get larger they turn in color from
green to red-brown to black with
long airs. Clumps or colonies of
the red-brown phase caterpil-
lars can be seen on the trunks of
trees. They fall to the ground, and
change into the moths.
Although there are many in-
sects that will consume these
caterpillars, (and mice are known
to eat the pupa on the ground),
occasionally the numbers can be
large enough to remove so many
leaves that they're noticed. If the
small egg masses or clusters of
caterpillars are seen, cut off the
infested branches and destroy the
young worms to reduce damage.
Bt insecticides that kill all kinds
of caterpillars are a good choice
if applied before they reach ma-
turity (the black stage). But when
numbers are too high or when
the larvae are too mature, using
a chemical insecticide before they
pupate will knock them down
and break the life cycle. Please
call us for specific insecticide rec-
ommendations.

Plan now for
November Lake walk
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "O" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Paho-
kee on Nov. 22, and end at Paho-
kee on Nov. 30.
That's nine days of walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea-
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days. So plan now and get
in shape for November.
For further information please

The First People in the New World


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The hunters were of medium
height with broad sculptured
faces, high cheekbones, piercing
dark eyes and long coarse, black
hair.
The sun had burned their skin a
rich mahogany brown, and years
of hunting had molded lean, hard
bodies, tempered like steel.
They wore leather shirts and
leggings, cured and blackened
by the smoke of countless camp
fires.
Necklaces, decorated with
carved ornate ivory amulets dan-
gled on their chests. Soft skinned
Bison moccasins, cleverly sewn
with sinew, covered their feet.
A fire hardened wooden spear
shaft, tipped with a flint point,
rested in each hunter's hand.
The hunters were trotting at a
steady gait, when a slight move-
ment on the horizon caused them
to stop abruptly and focus on the
dark objects that were moving
slowly across the open plains.
Swiftly, the hunters moved in
a single fluid motion, sprinting
across the open grassy plains to a
small, shallow gully, formed years
before by a flash flood of raging
water.
There the ambush was set,
as the hunters patiently waited
down wind from the approaching
herd of Bison.
This story took place thou-


sands of years ago when nomadic
hunters first started migrating to
North America at the end of the
Ice Age.
These people were called
the Paleolndians because they
emerged at the end of the Pleisto-
cene period, the Great Ice Age.
Who were these people,
where did they come from, and
how did they live?
To answer these questions, we
must take "A Walk in The Past."
Archeologists have different
views when identifying the time
periods and routes that Paleoln-
dians used when migrating into
North America, Central America
and South America.
Some believe the first no-
madic migrations entering North
America came from East Asia
approximately 20,000 to 35,000
years ago.
Others believe the migrations
started much sooner, 12,000 to
14,000 years ago.
What's certain is that the first
migrations occurred more than
12,000 years ago.
The Bering Strait is a natural
sea channel that is 160 feet deep
and 53 miles wide, separating
Asia and Alaska.
During the Ice Age, world sea
levels dropped several hundred
feet and the Bering Strait rose
from the sea, forming the Bering
SLand Bridge that connected North
America and Asia.


Most archeologists believe the
first nomadic hunters from East
Asia took this route.
They think the hunting groups
migrated first across the Bering
Land Bridge into North America,
spreading across the continent
and then south to Central and
South America.
However, other archeologists
theorize that low sea levels creat-
ed many migratory routes for no-
madic hunting groups to follow.
The Aleutian Islands, hanging
like a string of pearls between
Alaska and Japan, could have
formed a land bridge that nomad-
ic groups followed.
These groups may have taken
a southern route when they en-
tered North America and migrated
into Central and South America.
Different groups from Siberia
may have followed a southern
route, by-passing other migratory
routes into North America.
However, there is no archeo-
logical proof to support these
migratory route theories because
those would-be-routes now lay
hundreds of feet beneath the sea.
Other migratory theories spec-
ulate the low sea levels created
land routes for Pacific migrations
from Australia, New Guinea or
early European migrations from
Europe.

Beauty salons go 'green'


TALLAHASSEE--With the con-
sumer push for greener, cleaner
and more eco-friendly businesses
growing, many businesses are
looking for opportunities to show
their environmental commitment
to consumers. In an effort to pro-
vide Florida's salons the possibil-
ity to collectively contribute to the
green movement, The Florida As-
sociation of Beauty Professionals
(FAB) launched a new, industry-'
wide certification program that
will allow environmentally friend-
ly salons to demonstrate their
commitment to the industry and
consumers. TheFAB PRO Green
Conscious Salon Certification is
an effort designed by the industry
and, for thelindustry to help direct
and encourage salons to decrease
both their carbon footprint and
save money by reducing energy
costs. "Until now, salons have not
been provided an opportunity or
encouraged to become greener
and more eco-conscious," said
FAB President/CEO Rick Wallace.
"The FAB Pro Green Conscious
Salon Certification is another ex-
ample of industry self-regulation,
which has proven to be successful
in other industries." The FAB PRO
Green Conscious Certification
is intended to distinguish those
businesses that are implement-
ing procedures, technology and
practices that are eco-friendly. In
order to become FAB PRO Green
Conscious Certified, a salon must
meet the established criteria.
These criteria include satisfactory
completion of three core activities,
which represent a minimum of
best management practices and
include communication, commit-
ment and waste reduction. In ad-
dition, salons must demonstrate
successful completion of two
additional optional activities and
one salon-specific activity. "We
designed the certification so that it
would push salons beyond what
they were currently implement-
ing," said Joanne Powers, Chair bf
the Executive Committee. "In or-
der to become and stay certified,
salons will have to continually
move towards greener, less-toxic
and more environmentally friend-
ly practices. "FAB's goal with the
FAB PRO Green Conscious Salon
Program is to increase awareness
and support for businesses that
are taking steps to become more
environmentally friendly. The des-
ignation process has been created
to help encourage and reinforce
sustainable behaviors that lead
to positive results for the environ-
ment.

marine resources. Some of the
Indian groups in Florida would
grow and prosper, forming large
villages that encompassed large
geographical areas in Florida.
These geographical areas
would emerge as Indian nations
that would later be identified by
European names: Tequesta, Ais,
Jeaga, Hobe, Tocobaga, Mayaimi,
Calusa, and Apalachee tribes.
Unfortunately, the true original
Indian names for these nations
and many of their languages have
been lost in time.
The lost Florida Indian nations

There has been no solid arche-
ological evidence to support these
theories, but nothing is written in
stone, so only time will tell.
Archeologists are in agreement
that different Eastern Asian ethnic
groups migrated to North Amer-

America because of the multiple
native languages, cultures and
geographical settlements.

ing groups were moving con-
stantly to follow the herds of wild
animals.
Later, warm 'climate changes
spelled doom for many of the
large mammals but encouraged
wider plant distribution.
The nomadic groups started
adapting, .supplementing their
primary meat diets with plants,
becoming food gatherers.
Plants (corn, pumpkins, and
beans) were domesticated, and
food gatherers became farmers.
The farmers created sedimen-
tary villages that grew into great
civilizations in North and South
America.
Some of the nomadic groups
that moved into Florida merged
with the climate changes, from
small hunting groups into food
gatherers and later farmers.
Other groups remained food
gathers because of Florida's great

Book club sends daily excerpts


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
At this time in our lives, many
of us have promised ourselves to
take it easy and find time to read.
But there are so many books on
the shelves, where to start? Have
you ever wished you could read a
few pages of a book to see if it is
really what you are looking for?
I am a member of an e-mail
book club that has allowed me
to get a "taste" of a book before
I purchase it or check it out of the
library. This is one more reason to
have an e-mail address.
If you are like me, you will
look forward to this e-mail every
day. The e-mail book club, called
Dear Reader, looks at one book
per week. You get an e-mail each
day Monday through Friday and a
little more of the book is revealed.
I don't mean somebody's review.
I mean actual text from the book
itself. On Monday, the book.is in-
troduced and an excerpt from the
first chapter appears in the e-mail.
Then, Tuesday through Friday you
will read more of the book until
by Friday, you will have read the
first 20 pages or so. For all of you
avid readers out there, this is
great. This is enough of the book
to know if you want to read more.
The club also introduces you to
books you would never have oth-
erwise known existed.
Additionally, you can pick the
kinds of read you are looking for
by genre. Among your choices


are fiction, nonfiction, business,
and more. The book club even re-
views audio books. There are ten
plus choices. No need to get stuck
on one type of book. You can
switch the type of book any time
you want. Or, you can join more
than one type of book club.
Here is how to sign up. Us-
ing your Internet browser, i.e.,
Internet Explorer or Firefox, go
to the web site www.dearreader.
com., There you will find a short
explanation of the service. Lower
on the screen are the books each
group is reading that week. One is
from fiction, one from mysteries,
etc. You just click on the group you
would like to join. When the new
page comes up, all you have to do
is enter your e-mail address and
your zip code. The zip code tells
the club which library you use.
Then click "Join the Club." On
the next page you will be asked to
choose your library from a short
list. Finally, a thank you page is
displayed. These book clubs are
hosted by a lady who lives here
in Florida-over by Tampa. She
puts a short, upbeat note in each
e-mail.
This e-mail book club service is
fully endorsed, in fact sponsored,
by libraries everywhere. There is
a link to your library's web site at
the bottom of each daily e-mail.
There you can ask your library to
reserve the book for you if you*
wish.
This is also a guilt-free" book


1 eac4 ueadReIr. co-Iw



Fiction Book Club


The beauty of fiction lies in the priilege to live life
through another's skin, temporarily escaping our worln
yet safely re-entering reality again after the read. Our
fiction book club lets you experiment with authors nev
and old; in worlds yet untested and untried.

Each week I feature a new book and every day.
Courtesy photo
This screen shot shows just how easy it is to sign up for a
daily email from any of the Dear Reader book clubs available.
Whether you are a fan of mystery, science fiction or romance,
you will surely find one that interests you. Your grandkids
may also be interested in the Teen selection.


club. If you don't like the sound
of a book in Monday's e-mail, just
delete it! You will probably like
the one next week.
So when you wonder where
is the fun; just what can the com-
puter do for me? Sign up for the
e-mail book club and enjoy.
I'll be back every Monday to
show you practical reasons for
getting to know your computer.
Happy computing.
We welcome questions and ideas for
columns. Please e-mail dtimmons@

By Bob Wattendorf
Freshwater fishing is one of
the many outdoor recreational
activities encouraged by the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
The FWC views outdoor rec-
reation as a tremendously ben-
eficial opportunity that should be
available to all residents and visi-
tors, and it strives to provide qual-
ity fishing, hunting and wildlife-
viewing opportunities.
Cheryl Charles, president of
the Children and Nature Networ.k,
points out, "People throughout the
world are increasingly connected
by a resonance and passion, to
create a new common sense for
the good health of children today
and generations to come."
Dr. Andrew Lepp, assistant
professor of recreation, park ahd
tourism management at Kent
State, said the benefits from out-
door recreation are varied and
plentiful.
Outdoor recreation has psy-
chological benefits, including the
prevention or reduction of stress
and improved self-esteem, confi-
dence and creativity.
Dr. Lepp also contends it adds
to spiritual growth and leads to an
increased sense of exhilaration,
adventure and challenge from life.
Getting outside provides physical
benefits, such as aerobic, .cardio-
vascular and muscular fitness, as
well as improved functioning of
the immune system.
It even offers benefits for the
social life. The great outdoors
affords social benefits, such as


bonding with like-minded people
who also enjoy outdoor activities,
and feeling an increased pride in
your community and nation.
The economy benefits from
all of this activity as well. Outdoor
recreation creates job opportu-
nities for others, which leads to
economic growth and preserva-
tion of the natural areas needed
for outdoor recreation increases
property values.
The workplace wins because
people who regularly participate
in outdoor recreation tend to be'
more productive at work, Lepp
said.
The list continues with posi-
tive outcomes for the environ-
ment. People who participate in
outdoors activities usually have
increased environmental aware-
ness.
This awareness translates to
increased involvement in environ-
mental issues.
Specific activities such as fish-
ing can add to the enthusiasm
and provide a fun challenge to
become increasingly skillful. In
Florida, the abundance of natu-
ral waters (7,700 named lakes,
12,000 miles "f fishable rivers and
canals) means the opportunity is
available to everyone.
From digging worms and mak-
ing your own cane pole, to casting
a lure; you develop a connection
with nature that comes naturally
and has been an American tra-
dition since long before Mark
Twain's tales of the adventurous
Huck Finn.

2 FEMALE Pit Bulls I recent-
ly adopted these beauties
for $200 each and we love
them so much. But my fe-
male dog is increasing
growing jealous and getting
violent with them. I'm
afraid to leave them alone
and always have to separ-
ate them. They are both
very rare colors. One is 9
months the other is 6
months. I'm only asking for
what I paid for them. They
must stay together! New
owner MUST agree to vet
check and reference check.
I will keep them as long as
it takes to find someone
who will keep them inside
as they are accustomed
and love them dearly. They
adore children and cannot
live without cuddles and
hugs. Super affectionate
and gentle. They have to
be fixed as I will not sell
them to a breeder! $400.

Keenagers honor Pastoral couple


By Bobbi Brown
Just because you don't live in
Moore Haven, doesn't mean you
can't help someone who does!
The Keenagers honored their
pastor and his wife at their regu-
lar covered dish dinner Thursday
night. Barbara Brown called on
her daughter-in-law, Nancy Mc-
Call, who lives in Lake Wales, to
compose a poem to use as a clue
for the Tillery's to guess what
their gift might be.
Nancy is so gifted that way,
and the following soon hit Bob-
bi's e-mail:
"You will have a roaring good
time when we send you on your
way. Clean sheets and clean tow-
els that you bring along, might
make it a better day.
You will see some strange
and different things. Just don't
leave your car, and start walk-
ing; for you could find yourself
on dangerous ground, as the air
fills with screaming and squawk-
ing. So figure it out, and plan to
have fun, while on this adventure
you're traveling. And see if right
now your imagination answers
this riddle that you are unravel-
ing." So, see, help is there if you
just ask for it!
Besides the riddle, the Tillery's


were given seven wrapped gifts
as clues, with the final two being
their prize. The Keenagers pre-
sented the couple with tickets to
Lion Country Safari, and a night at
the KOA Campground there, with
a guarantee that they will hear li-
ons roar at night.
Brother Sherrill and other
Keenagers guessed everything
from Disney World to a boat ride
on the Caloosahatchee, but no


one guessed what the trip might
be.
If you are 50 years of age or
over, join us on the third Thurs-
day of each month for a really fun
time. Membership in First Baptist
Church is not a requirement to
attend Keenagers-just 50 years
old or older-and you can come
"by association" if your spouse's
age qualifies. We'd love to get to
know you, and share the fun.

The "Great outdoors" set
music
Mix together a handful of
iple, a failing banjo, mando-
autoharp, fiddle, harmonica,
s and a couple of guitars. Put
m under a balmy, fall evening
.nkled with stars and you've


got a night of delightful music at
Highlands Hammock State Park.
On Saturday, Oct. 18, begin-
ning at 7 p.m. the Friends of High-
lands Hammock will welcome
the return of great mountain bal-
lads and traditional tunes from
the Back Porch Revival's Old Time
String Band. Their sweet and
sassy old time music is loaded
with bounce and humor. Playing
both traditional tunes and some
of their own creations, they'll
have your toes tapping.
Performing together for over
16 years, you may have seen them
at the prestigious Florida Folk Fes-
tival. In 1995, they were honored
by the folk music community as
the top vocal group at the Pioneer
Florida Old Time Music Champi-
onship. In 1996, they took honors
again as the top Old Time Band in
yearly competition held in Dade
City.
The band features Jim Robert-
son on the fiddle, guitar and lead
vocals. Jim's wife Melanie plays
an old-time failing banjo. She


learned this unique style as an ap-
prentice to a master artist under
the sponsorship of the Florida Bu-
reau of Folklife and has been fea-
tured at the Florida Folk Festival
and on National Public Radio.
Melanie's brother, John Mc-
Clure, plays the mandolin, occa-
sional autoharp, harmonica, and
provides backup and lead vocals.
John's wife, Ginger, plays the Ap-
palachian lap dulcimer. Joining
his aunts and uncles for the first
performance with the family band
on bass will be nephew Matthew
Coltharp. Matt recently graduated
from Sebring High School where
he performed with the jazz band.
He is now a freshman at South
Florida Community College.
This will be a wonderful night
of old time string band music
under the stars. We encourage
you to load up some lawn chairs
and blankets, grab a flashlight
and pack a picnic basket or plan
to purchase dinner at the Ham-
mock Inn. Admission to the con-
cert is just $5 per person, with

Glades Central Slams Tigers, 43-0


INI/Ashley Smith
Fans packed the Clewiston stadium in anticipation of last week's game against visiting Glades
Central. Glades Central managed to outplay the Tigers, with the Tiger scorecard posting 0
points at the end of the night.


INI/Ashley Smith
Tiger coaches pressed their players to find ways of penetrating the Raider defense, but not-
ing seemed to work and the Raiders went on to win the much-anticipated game.


By Jeff Barwick
The Glades Central Raiders
rolled into Cane Field on Friday
night and served notice that their
top ranking in Class 3A and Num-
ber 7 in the state was right on tar-
get as they rolled up 542 yards of
total offense.

punted the ball dead at the Raid-
ers 21.
The Raiders rushed and passed
the ball to the Tiger 44 where, with
2:48 left in the period, Thomas
fired a strike to 6'5" wideout Kel-
vin Benjamin for the score.
Kicker Alanda Shaw tacked on
the point after.
The Raiders got the ball back
early in the second period and
put together a six play, 77-yard
drive.
About their only tough going
along the way was three penal-
ties against them for motion or
procedure.
Running back Antwon Chil-
som rumbled up the middle
for the final 13 yards at the 7:30
mark.
Shaw's conversion was good,
making it 14-0. The Tigers went
three and out quickly and Glades
Central took possession at their
own 25.
Despite two more Raider pen-
alties, it only took them three
snaps to cover the yards with
Thomas hitting wide receiver
Rantavious Wooten for an 83-
yard touchdown.
Shaw again converted and set
the score at 21-0.
The Tigers tried an offensive
variation and went to a direct
snap formation with speedster Ja-
marcus Smith in the deep spot.
The first snap sailed high and
through the end zone to pin a
safety on Clewiston.
Clewiston punted the free kick
and Glades Central set up their


next series near midfield.
On the first play, Thomas
dropped back and threw across
the middle.
Tiger linebacker Dillon Irey
deflected the ball and fellow line-
backer Fred Washington snatched
it in and returned the ball to the
Raider 39.
Another Raider penalty gave
the Tigers a first down but Tiger
quarterback Isandro Marquez'
third down pass was picked off by
Raider cornerback Charles Dow-
ers with only 31 seconds remain-
ing in the half.
True to Glades Central form
over the history of the rivalry with
Clewiston, a few seconds on the
clock meant absolutely nothing.
On the second snap, Thomas
found Wooten loose on the side-
line, Wooten grabbed the pass,
stopped, changed directions, side
stepped two Tiger defenders and
raced for an 83-yard touchdown
with 7 seconds remaining.
The Raiders were penalized
15 yards for excessive celebration
and brought in long kicker Rob-
ert Ferguson to attempt the extra
point from 35 yards out.
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino stormed in and blocked
the kick.
The third period was a score-
less event.
With 2:50 on the clock, Dillon
Irey gave the Tiger faithful some-
thing to cheer about when he
snuffed a Raider drive by picking
off a Thomas pass and returning
it 41 yards but the Tiger offense
just couldn't get the ball moving.
In the final period, Glades Cen-
tral scored twice.
Back-up running back James
Melton raced for a 57-yard score
early in the quarter and Chilsom
scored his second on the night on
a 13-yard scamper with 7:41 left
in the game.
Shaw and Ferguson, respec-,
tively, converted the extra points.
Tiger senior tailback Darris
Hughes, who entered the game
averaging over 12 yards per carry,
was held to 66 hard earned yards
on 20 attempts.
Tiger Head Coach Joe Roth
was disappointed saying, "We
had been making weekly prog-
ress on becoming a better foot-
ball team but that didn't happen
tonight. We made a lot of mis-
takes against a great team." Add-
ing after a pause, "We knew we
had to avoid the big plays and we
didn't. They are good but not 43
points better."
Junior linebacker Dillon Irey
led Clewiston with 7 tackles, a
pass interception returned for 41
yards, and a tipped pass that line-
backer Fred Washington snared


Submitted photo/Jeff Barwick


and returned 21 yards.
The Raiders wore down the Ti-
gers who dressed only 23 players
for the contest.
When it was all said and done,
Clewiston emerged in fairly good
physical condition.
Linebacker Leonard Newton
had what appeared to be a minor
leg injury and center Dillon Irey
had a hurting right hand.
Linebacker and reserve run-
ning back Joey Cordova missed
the game due to a hamstring
pull.
Hopefully, all will be healthy
for the Tigers' non-district game
Friday night at Delray American
Heritage.
The Tigers are hoping to
avenge a 56-0 pasting from the
Stallions last season.

Terriers win in impressive fashion


I NI/NajI IDias
The national anthem was led by the Moore Haven High School marching band, which helps
sets the stage for an easy home win on Sept. 25.


Moore Haven quarterback Dalton Britt escapes a Hurricanes rush in the first quarter, show-
ing his mobility in the Terriers 61-20 win over Miami-Hillel Community Day on Sept. 25.


Hall rushes for 124
yards, three scores
in first half

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Who would
have thought that the Moore Ha-
ven Terriers would score 61 points
in the first half?
Believe it, because that's what
happened against Miami Hillel
Community Day on Thursday,
Sept. 25.
In Moore Haven's 61-20
thumping of the Hurricanes, ju-
nior running back Fred Hall led


the team with three first half
touchdowns on 13 carries for 124
rushing yards (135 overall).
Senior quarterback Dalton
Britt was 9-for-12 passing with
230 yards and three touchdowns.
He got wide receivers Xavier
Fagan (five receptions, 121 yards)
and Keonte White (two recep-
tions, 58 yards) involved in the
game, throwing for scores to
each of them,
Both Fagan (two touchdowns)
and White (one touchdown)
scored in the first half.
Also, while the starters were
in the game, Elazarus Balckmon
(one reception, 40 yards) scored
a touchdown on a 50-yard punt.


return with 6:00 left in the first
half.
Just 50 seconds later, with 5:10
left in the second quarter, Terry
Hallback returned a 57-yard inter-
ception for a touchdown to put
Moore Haven up, 55-14.
Hall finished Moore Haven's
scoring with just 36.5 seconds left
in the first half on a 2-yard touch-
down run.
Moore Haven finished with
444 total yards of offense in this
game.
With that being said, as im-
pressive as the Terriers win was,
it was against a first-year pro-
gram that had many players who
haven't had much football experi-


ence.
"Overall, we did real good in
the first half," Hall said.
"We try to come out with as
much passion as we can.
"Coach (Jason Bond) told us
to go hard and make pancakes
on every play," Hall continued. "I
credit our offensive line because
without them, I wouldn't be able
to do.what I did."
Hurricanes head coach David
Freed was impressed with Moore
Haven's play, noting Hall's agres-
siveness and speed shown on dis-
play throughout the first half.
"Moore Haven played very
physical, tough and disciplined,"
Freed said.


Pahokee wins easily in homecoming game


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators are preparing to take on the Okeechobee team tomorrow night.


Important notes for
Glades Day, Glades
Central games

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE "This is a black eye
for our team," said Blaze Thomp-
son, Pahokee's head coach, refer-
ring to a rash of penalties issued
in a Sept. 26 game.
It's safe to say that the referees
took center stage in the Pahokee
Blue Devils 34-10 victory against
Jupiter.
.The state's top Class 2B team
looked somewhat uncomfort-'
able after being flagged for two
penalties before the game even
started.
Pahokee was penalized for 30
yards before the kickoff, a rare
occurrence that happens to any
team.
The referees called a 15-yard
penalty on the Blue Devils for
unsportsmanlike conduct as the
players crossed the 45-yard line
during their warm-up session.
After two of Pahokee's coach-
es disagreed with the referees on
the call, one of them was ejected
from the game.
It was not clear what the
heated exchange of words were,
but nonetheless, another 15-yard
penalty was issued to Pahokee.
That worked out in Jupiter's
favor, as the Blue Devils began the
game kicking off from their own
12-yard line.
The Warriors wound up scor-
ing on their first drive as senior
Ethan Jones (15 rushes, 45 yards)
scored on a 1-yard run with 5:51
in the first quarter.
But that's the only touchdown
Pahokee allowed, with their of-
fense scoring the next 34 points
of the game.
Blue Devils sophomore quar-
terback Emmanuel Perez threw
the first touchdown pass of his
career, a 19-yard completion to
Dexter Holmes (two receptions,
29 yards).
That score came with 50.3 sec-
onds left in the first quarter.
From there on out, it was all
Pahokee as Vincent Smith (16
rushes, 156 yards) scored his first
touchdown of the game, a 5-yard
run.
That score, which came with


6:45 left in the second quarter, put
Pahokee up 13-7.
The touchdown drive was set
up by a fumble recovery from
Doral Willis earlier in the quarter.
Brandin Hawthorne was cred-
ited with the forced fumble on
Jupiter.
Nu'Keese Richardson (8-for-
13, 161 yards and two touch-
downs) threw an 80-yard score to
De'Joshua Johnson with 4:33 left
in the'half.
The second half, which began
with Pahokee leading 21-7, was
highlighted by a 40-yard score by
Smith with 7:27 left in the third. ,
The Michigan-bound running
back would have had a third rush-
ing touchdown later in the second
half, a 73-yard run.
But that was called back due
to the referees ruling that a Paho-
kee player committed a holding
penalty.
Though the infraction cost
Pahokee 10 yards, it still didn't
stop them from scoring again
as Richardson heaved a 31-yard
touchdown pass to Johnson (five
catches, 132 yards) with 5:30 left
in the game.
With less than three minutes
to go' in the fourth, Pahokee
linebacker Norman Griffith was
flagged for unsportsmanlike con-
duct, which led to his ejection
from the game.
The referees ruled that Griffith
blocked a Jupiter player out of
bounds before the whistled blow-
ed on a Warriors punt play.
According to high school rules,
if a player is flagged for unsports-
manlike conduct twice in one
game, then he is automatically
ejected.
Griffith, who would have been
suspended for Pahokee's next two
games, was regrettably shot and
killed just hours after the home-
coming game in Belle Glade.
The game ended in a 37-yard
field goal by Jupiter kicker Doug
Parkley.
'"There were some strange
things that occurred in this game,"
said Jupiter head coach Charlie
Persson. "We've been shooting
ourselves in the foot with the pen-
alties we had.
"I'm proud of how our kids
stepped up, but you can't come
to Pahokee starting two freshmen
and seven sophomores," he con-
tinued.


"Pahokee's players are very
relaxed and they know how to
overcome penalties, but we're
not good enough to do that."
Surprisingly, Jupiter had more
penalties than Pahokee (11-10)
but the Blue Devils racked up
133 yards, compared to 82 for the
Warriors.
Neither coach commented on
the conduct on the referees for
the game.
According to FHSAA rules, if
any coach who talks negatively
about referees is subject to a
$1,000 fine.
Pahokee (4-0) travels to Byrnes
in what could be the most impor-
tant game in the history of this
storied program.
"We're gonna have to tackle
better against Byrnes if we want
to win," Thompson said.
"If we continue to play aggres-
sive on offense and defense, then
we can come out with a win, but
we must cut back on our mental
mistakes."
The Blue Devils, who are at
their best when facing adversity,
will put up a tough fight against
the nation's top-ranked team, ac-
cording to USA Today.
The loss of Griffith should en-
able Pahokee to play with a sense
of urgency that they've always
had, but on a higher level than


ever before.
Fans should not be surprised
if Pahokee leaves Byrnes with an
upset victory.
Pahokee, which finished last
season as USA Today's No. 6 team
in the nation, will likely be nation-
ally-ranked again with a win.
The game will be televised at
7:30 p.m. on the ESPNU netWork
and can be seen on the web at
espn360.com.

Notices for this week's
Glades Day, Glades
Central games
Glades Day, who is coming off
a bye week, will be traveling to
Okeechobee tomorrow night in a
gut-check contest for them.
The Gators (2-1) must over-
come the Brahmans running
game, led by senior Lonnie Pry-
or.
The Okeechobee running back
almost single-handedly beat them
last year, rushing for 302 yards in
a 26-3 victory on Sept. 28, 2007 in
Belle Glade.
If Glades Day does that, then
they should win this game and
go 3-1.
As for Glades Central (3-0),
they will be playing Dwyer on Sat-
urday, Oct. 4 at Palm Beach Cen-
tral High School.
SIt was determined by the
School District of Palm Beach
County that- the Raiders home-
coming game would not be
played in Belle Glade due to the
latest rash of shootings in the
area.
Last season, the Raiders won
a close game against the Panthers
by a score of 14-7.
But the outcome looks to be
somewhat different, as Glades
Central, the Associated Press No.
1 team in Class 3A, should win
this time by a larger margin, even
though Dwyer (3-0) is considered
the state's No. 2 team in Class 4A,
according to AP.
The game between two of
Palm Beach County's top teams
will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the
neutral site.
Staff Writer Naji Tobias can be
reached at ntoblas@newszap.com.


"They showed a total team ef-
fort, I hope they make the playoffs
because they deserve to."
The Terriers (3-0) go on the.
road today to play Boca Raton
Christian in their quest to remain
undefeated before district play
begins next Friday night against


St. John Neumann.
Moore Haven, who is in Dis-
trict 6-Class 1A, must win at least
two of its three district games to
make the playoffs for the first time
since 2003.

CLEWISTON CITY CHARTER REFERENDUM
The Clewiston City Charter was enacted by Special Laws o

outdated and/or superseded by the General Laws of Florida.
The Commission has concluded the adoption of a new Charter
is in the best interests of the citizens of Clewiston.
Shall the City Commission repeal the existing Charter dated
1947 and enact a new City Charter for the City of Clewiston?

CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!
Dear Friends,
I would like to thank the Board of County
Commissioners for holding the 2008 county
millage rate at 6.5 at last week's meeting to
give some tax relief to our taxpayers. Our
Property Appraiser was at that meeting urg-
ing the commissioners to redue the tax rate.
My question is, where was she when we
needed answers last year? The citizens of
Hendry County attended a commission meet-
ing last year looking for answers. She was
invited to explain and defend the property val-
ues. There was no representation from her or
her office. Then again, it wasn't an election year with opposition.
I'd like to thank you again for supporting me in the Primary Election. I
look forward to meeting and making new friends while campaigning before
the General Election. I have received a lot of phone calls and e-mails and
I was happy to respond and explain to your satisfaction.
Thank you and God Bless,
Your Friend,
Phiip Peletier

Local man in need of a heart transplant


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
A catastrophic medical prob-
lem can come upon anyone at
any time. It is devastating in many
ways. There is the physical and
emotional strain as well as the
economic hardship. Twenty-five
year LaBelle resident Tommy
Jennings and his wife, Kathy, are
facing just such a time. Devoted
Christians and members of Free-
dom Fellowship Ministries, Jimmy
admits it can also "rock your faith
a little." But, he is quick to add
that he knows in his heart God
is good. "Never underestimate
Him," he said, "He will provide
for us."
The couple is putting their faith
in the Lord as they begin to climb
their mountain. For years Tommy
has had a bad heart resulting in
several surgeries including open
heart and five by-passes. As of
Sept. 9, he was put on the trans-
plant list, waiting for a new heart
that could make all the difference
in his life.
At 59, Tommy said he had his
first heart attack at age 39. He
has been fitted with a pacemaker
and defibrilator for four years.
Last May, when he went to Up-
thegrove Elementary School to
pick Kathy up from work, he was
feeling bad. He was pale and his
chest hurt. Kathy insisted they go
directly to the Southwest Region-
al Medical Center, where he had
previous procedures done.
They found that he now has
only ten percent of heart func-
tion making him eligible as a
heart transplant recipient. He was
in the hospital for a week, then
transported to Tampa General
Hospital by helicopter where he


was fitted with a pick line going
from his right arm all the way to
his heart to keep his blood pres-
sure up.
He spent another week in the
hospital in Tampa. He is now tak-
ing 15 different medications the
newest one gives him an excruci-
ating headache.
The Jenningses have two
daughters, one in LaBelle and
one in Fort Myers; and a son in
Clewiston. They also have family
in Moore Haven where they lived
for years.
Many people will remember
Tommy from his years working at
the Log Cabin Restaurant before
it closed. Because of -Tommy's
medical problems, the couple is
now losing their carpet cleaning
business. Outside of Kathy's job
as custodian at UES, they are re-,
ceiving Medicare and now Med-
icaid, but the bills keep piling up.
They're afraid they're going to
lose their home. For the first time,
they had to make a late payment
on it.
Kathy is going to put Tommy
on her insurance, but that won't
take effect until January 1 and
how much it will cover in ques-
tionable.
If a heart becomes available,
Tommy may be flown to Tampa
via Angel Flight or the couple
may drive themselves, depending
on the situation. Once there, the
surgery is expected to take 4-6
hours. After that, they will need to
stay within five miles of the hospi-
tal for about a month so they will
need to pay for an apartment and
food while they stay there.
Then, if everything works
well, Tommy will have to take
two medications for rest of his
life. The cost of all this? No one


can say. They just know that they
see everything they have worked
for all their lives beginning to slip
away.
So, they just take it one day at a
time and trust in the Lord.
In the meantime, friends at
Freedom Fellowship are putting
on a benefit for Tommy on Satur-
day, Oct. 11 from 11 a.m.-2 p.m.
at Barron Park. Enjoy barbecue
chicken, potato salad, baked
beans, bread and sweet tea for $8
per plate. Tickets are available at
Freedom Counseling Service Cen-
ter, 60 Calhoun St., from 9 a.m.-l


Kathy and Tommy Jennings.


p.m. Monday through Friday. Call
612-9899. Also enjoy gospel sing-
ing and get a$10 haircut at the
benefit. Proceeds will go to the
Jenningses.
It's all pretty overwhelming,
Kathy said, adding they never
knew something like this could
happen to them. But, she said,
"It's in the Lord's hands."
An account has also been set
up at Florida Community Bank
to accept donations: Tommy Jen-
nings Heart Transplant Benefit
Fund. Just make checks payable
to Tommy Jennings.

Pearce Canal cleanup



receives go-ahead


Revised old jail
contract adds
$135,106

Sy Nena Bolan
+ Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- The
county commissioners' meeting
of Sept. 22 provided updates on
a Curry Island issue, a contract to
begin Pearce Canal cleanup, and
a revised contract on jail renova-
tion.
Last month, the, county re-
ceived a letter from the Depart-
ment of Environmental Protection
(DEP) which informed the board
of commissioners that the depart-
ment was considering a lease
request from Lake Okeechobee
Habitat Alliance, Inc (LOHA). The
county's lease covers the state
owned lands of Vance Whiddon
Park on Curry Island. LOHA has
an interest in using it as a man-
agement area for hunting, hiking
and other recreation. The DEP
wanted to know if the county
would care to release its lease on
these lands, or choose to retain its
lease on the park.
County commissioners decid-
ed to send a letter of reply stating
that the county wants to expand
public access on Curry Island,
and has been working with South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict on recreational projects with-
in Lake Okeechobee. The county


wishes to keep its lease which ex-
pires in 2037. A letter from Gary
Ritter, SFWMD Okeechobee cen-
ter, also supports Glades County's
vision of enhancing recreational
opportunities on Curry Island and
other recreational sites such as In-
dian Prairie Canal Campground.
A contract for cleaning the
Pearce Canal in Buckhead Ridge
received the go-ahead from the
board. It reflects work to be done
on conceptual design and permit-
ting with $250,000. This will be
done in cooperation with DEP
and SFWMD, and the project will
dredge the approximate three
miles of Pearce Canal to 8 feet ac-
cording to national geodetic verti-
cal datum (NGVD) in the absence
of original plans. According to the
grant work plan, this is the bot-
tom elevation of the navigation
lock, which will become the lim-
iting factor for lake access when
this work has been completed.
Glades County will be the permit
holder and will contract with en-
gineers and dredging contractors.
The old jail renovation con-
tract with engineers/contractors
will be revised to include an ad-
ditional cost of $135,106, which
was omitted in error from their
earlier contract. Since the omis-
sion dealt with fire safety features,
the board was compelled to ap-
prove the extra cost.
The road department has
nominated roads to be resurfaced
and listed their present condition
for FDOT consideration. Approxi-


mately 1.2 miles of Williams Road
in Ortona was determined to be
in bad condition. Approximately
2.10 miles of C.R. 74 (Old Lake-
port Road) was listed in poor con-
dition, as was 2.33 miles of Birch-
wood Parkway near Port LaBelle.
A request was granted to pub-
lic safety director, Bob Jones.
He asked that flu vaccines be
purchased to give to county em-
ployees who want to participate.
Sometimes this will save employ-
ees from having to take time off
due to illness. Each department
will pay for its employee vac-
cines.
The board of county commis-
sioners approved a resolution in
support of an inland port in the
Heartland region. On Sept. 15, the
Florida Heartland Rural Economic
Development Initiative (FHREDI),
which represents six counties,
approved a resolution for a site
selection regarding an inland port
to be centrally located within the
boundaries of the rural areas of
critical economic concern. Glades
County's resolution of Sept. 22
encourages the implementation
of FHREDI's document.
It was announced that public
hearings on impact fees will take
place on Oct. 27 at 6 p.m., and on
Nov. 10 at 9 a.m., during regular
county meetings.
