Defendant found not guilty


First of three
co-defendants went
on trial Oct. 1

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- On Aug.
7, a mistrial was declared in the
murder case of Jessy Wayne Cas-
tellucci. A new trial was begun
on Sept. 29 at the Glades County
courthouse in Moore Haven,


with Judge Jack R. Schoonover
presiding. A jury of six and one
alternate was chosen to decide
the case of second degree mur-
der with a firearm.
Dennis Wallace, prosecut-
ing attorney, began his opening
statement to the jurors, whereby
he described the victim, Davron-
jon Bakeev, 29. Mr. Bakeev was
an immigrant from Uzbekistan,
standing 6'6" and weighing ap-
proximately 250 pounds. He had
gone to see his estranged wife
and two children on Nov. 18,


2002, but never returned from
his visit. Later, the car he had
borrowed was found abandoned
in Sarasota County.
Mr. Wallace explained that a
tip originating in Idaho, came on
Aug. 15, 2007. Consequently, a
residence in the Muse communi-
ty of Glades County was searched
by Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE). Davronjon
Bakeev's remains were found
with a gun shot wound to the
back of the head. A beer can
was found in the grave site, and


a hole was found in the floor of
the Muse residence. A bullet was
retrieved from under the floor.
"That was the bullet that
killed Davronjon Bakeev," Den-
nis Wallace said.
Richard Sullivan, defendant's
attorney, mentioned in his open-
ing statement that there are two
phases to the trial. One part re-
lates to physical evidence, and
the second part comes from the
testimony of a jail inmate. Mr.
Sullivan further explained that
proceedings may point to a mur-

The trial recommended Oct.

roommate, who filed a missing
person's report on Nov. 23. A
state trooper found the aban-
donded car that Bakeev had bor-
rowed, and told the court that he
did not see any blood.

Eliza Brown talks
about children and
young people
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- Eliza
Brown recently retired after teach-
ing for 34 years in the county, and
has answered some community
profile questions. She reflects
on her work with children at the
Glades County Child Develop-
ment Center.
Where were you born and
raised?
I was born October 24, 1945
in Benbow Village, just about
10 minutes from Moore Haven
where I was raised.
What did you learn about life
during your long career as an
educator?
It will take a book for me to
tell all the things I learned in my
thirty-four years as an educator.
First of all, I graduated from the
first night school graduation class,
taught by the late Robert Gamble.
Twenty years later I decided to
attend college, where I received
a BS degree in education. Some
of my learning came from hands
on, listening ears, parents, family
members, co-workers, and even
from children There is a lot you
can learn from children if you
take time out to listen to them.
Just show them love and they will
never forget it. Children can learn
a lot through play, patience and
understanding. I have never met

Raiders defeat Dwver in 4 OT slugfest


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central's Alanda Shaw had to punt often in their close game against Dwyer, a 6-0 win
in four overtimes.


INI/Nall Tobias
The Glades Central faithful made the trek to Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington
on a soggy Saturday morning. Donned in umbrellas, nobody left the game until it ended.


Pahokee and Glades
Day lose, but Moore
Haven wins big

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WELLINGTON The heavy
rains, combined with slick and'
wet field conditions, played a key
role in the Glades Central-Dwyer'
game.
But in the Oct. 4 contest, it was
a set of clutch plays that deter-
mined the outcome.
The Raiders 6-0 win over the
Panthers, a four-overtime thriller,
came on a touchdown pass and a
fumble recovery, which made the
difference.
The game-winning play on of-
fense came on a 17-yard touch-
down pass to senior wideout
James West, courtesy of junior
quarterback Leron 'L.J.' Thomas.
That was the only score of the
game.
"The way the ball came to me,
I saw the end zone right away,"
West said of the game winning
play.
West ran a slant on that play,
with no Dwyer defender, able to
cover him in the middle of the
field.
"L.J. threw a wild pass toward
the middle and when I caught it,
a defenderr tried to tackle me from
S below," he continued.
"I broke the tackle, moved my
legs and just went into the end
zone."
After Thomas was ruled down
on his knee in an attempt to make
a two-point conversion, Dwyer
got the ball back.
Raiders defensive end Artavi-
ous Dowdell sealed the deal with
a fumble recovery on Dwyer's
Matt Elam, who was trapped
from the line of scrimmage on a
first down play from the 10 yard
line.
"I think Dowdell won the
game for us before it was even
over," West said of his teammate,
who also had two sacks against
Dwyer.
"Dowdell always seemed to
come through when it mattered
the most."
Missed opportunities proved
to be Dwyer's undoing, as they
learned that teams like Glades
Central know how to capitalize
on it.
In the first overtime, Glades
Central made a fourth-down goal
line stand as Panthers senior Brad-
ley Wallace (20 carries, 47 yards;
3-for-8 passing, 49 yards) could
not score from the 1-yard line.
When the Raiders got the ball
back, sophomore Alanda Shaw
tried a 25-yard game winning field
goal on fourth down.
However, the game would go
into a second overtime after the
kick sailed wide left.
Two fumbled snaps by Glades
Central, plus an incomplete pass
from Thomas to sophomore Kel-
vin Benjamin, gave Dwyer yet an-
other opportunity.
When the Panthers got the ball
back, it looked like they were go-
ing to win the game.
But on fourth down, Glades
Central junior Greg Dent blocked
a 30-yard field goal attempt from
Dwyer.
The clutch play sent the game
into its third overtime.
The Raiders defense made yet
another clutch fourth-down stop
after Wallace was stopped just
short of the goal line.
The play was a 14-yard run by
Wallace, who was stopped at the
1-yard line by a host of swarming
Raiders defenders.
That was Dwyer's final oppor-
tunity to win before Glades Cen-
tral took over.
The Panthers, who fell from
No. 2 to No. 4 in this week's As-
sociated Ptess Class -1A poll, had
two chances to score in regula-
tion.
With 1:11 left in the first half,
Dent recovered a Panthers fumble
from the Raiders 10 yard line.
The key fumble came on a


third-and-two play, with Dwyer
seemingly on its way to opening
up the scoreboard.
In the fourth quarter, Elam's
22-yard run placed Dwyer at
Glades Central's 25 yard line with
just 5:40 left in regulation.
After a 13-yard run by Wal-
lace on a third-down play, Dwyer
made it to the Raiders 12-yard line
later in the quarter.
Dwyer (3-1) reached Glades
Central's 4 yard line after Wallace
made an 8-yard run with 4:03 left
in regulation. It set up a 21-yard
field goal attempt for Dwyer.
With 3:17 left in the quarter,
Dwyer attempted to fake the field
goal after a botched snap.
However, Glades Central's
special teams made a key stop as
a Dwyer pass fell incomplete.
The game went into overtime
after both teams failed to move
the ball in the air.
Glades Central gained only 85
total yards throughout the game,
while Dwyer recorded 215 yards
(161 rushing, 54 passing).
Glades Central (5-0; No. 1 in
AP's Class 3A poll) had 12 fum-
bles, three more than Dwyer.
Each team lost three fumbles,
but Dwyer's turnovers were more
costly.
Glades Central's homecoming
game against Dwyer, which was
scheduled to be played on Oct.
3 in Belle Glade, was moved to
Palm Beach Central High School
.. or saety reasons. '
Byrnes (S.C.) 38, Pahokee
12: It proved to be tough going
for the Pahokee Blue Devils in
-their nationally televised game,
which was aired Oct. 3 on the ES-
PNU network.
As seen during the telecast,
the team received an outpour of
support from the Byrnes football
family, highlighted by a special
tribute to Norman Griffith, who
was tragically shot and killed on
Sept. 27.
However, the Pahokee players
were not in the game mentally,
which, in part, proved to be the
difference.
The Blue Devils (4-1; No. 1 in
the AP's Class 2B poll) had trou-
ble stopping Byrnes junior run-
ning back Marcus Lattimore, who
had 27 rushes for 164 yards and a
touchdown.
In total, a host of missed tack-
les by the Pahokee defense played
a role in Byrnes gaining 211 total
rush yards and four touchdowns.
S The pass defense from the
Blue Devils fared better, limiting
junior quarterback Chas Dodd


to 122 yards on 12-for-26 passing
and an interception.
Pahokee's De'Joshua Johnson
(two receptions, 18 yards) caught
his first interception of the season
in the big game.
Down 14-0 in the second quar-
ter, Nu'Keese Richardson (10-for-
29, 189 yards, one touchdown,
two interceptions) kept Pahokee
in the game.
It was highlighted by a 77-yard
touchdown pass to Dexter Hol-
mes, which cut the lead down to
14-6.
Unfortunately for. Pahokee, at
least two touchdowns were left
on the field in the first half after
failing to score from the red-
zone.
In the second half, Byrnes
pulled away with a 2-yard touch-
down run from Lattimore, fol-
lowed by a Richardson intercep-
tion being returned for a 42-yard
touchdown..
Pahokee's Dennis Hall (five
receptions, 91 yards) caught a
fourth-quarter touchdown from
Vincent Smith, which accounted
for their other score.
Smith was limited to 52 rush-
ing yards on 29 carries, a season
low to date.
In all fairness, this game was
played against the nation's top-
ranked team, according to USA
Today.
Also, it was clear that Paho-
kee missed the presence ot Grif-
fijth; \ho's .widely considered the
heart and soul of their defense.


Though Pahokee didn't win
this game, in a sense, they scored
a major victory just by honoring
the request of Griffith's farrily to
play.
Okeechobee 49, Glades
Day 41: The Gators (2-2; No. 5 in
AP's Class 1A poll) lost this game
simply because they could not
stop Lonnie Pryor.
The Florida State commit ran
for 356 yards and five touch-
downs against Glades Day's run
defense.
That makes it two games in
a row a running back rushed for
more than 350 yards.
In Glades Day's last game, a
30-24 loss to Clewiston on Sept.
19, senior Darris Hughes had a
career day, rushing for 352 yards
and three touchdowns.
What kept the Gators in the
game was its own potent rushing
attack.
Kelvin Taylor, the son of NFL
running back Fred Taylor, had his
fourth consecutive 100-yard rush-
ing game.
He ran for 112 and scored
three touchdowns to keep them
close.
But the star of Glades Day's of-
fense in their high scoring game
was Deandre Jackson.
The senior, who is a Suncoast
transfer, led all Glades Day rush-
ers with 178 yards, while adding
57 receiving yards on five recep-
tions.
Bo Schlecter;the Galtrs qali-
terback, was 11-for-19 with 230


INFORMATION FOR CLEWISTON VOTERS

On November 4, 2008, the City of Clewiston will present a referendum on the
Hendry County General Election Ballot to adopt a new City Charter. The City's
present charter was enacted by Special Laws of Florida in 1925 and was last
amended in 1947. The current charter is outdated and/or superseded by Florida
law. A citizen "Charter Review Committee" reviewed the proposed new charter
during a series of public meetings and gave unanimous support for its approval by
the Clewiston City Commission. The City Commission adopted Ordinance
2008-04 on August 21, 2008. The referendum will appear on the November
Election Ballot in the following format:

Clewiston City Charter Referendum

The Clewiston City Charter was enacted by Special Laws of Florida in 1925 and
was last amended in 1947. The Charter is outdated and/or superseded by the
General Laws ofFlorida. The Commission has concluded that the adoption of a
new Charter is in the best interest of the citizens of Clewiston.


Shall the City Commission repeal the existing Charter amended in 1947 and
enact a new City Charter for the City ofClewiston? Yes No


In approving Ordinance 2008-04, the City Commission committed their support
that enactment of a new charter will serve the public interest as beneficial to "good
governance" for the City of Clewiston far into the future. VOTER SUPPORT
FOR THE NEW CHARTER IS ENCOURAGED AND APPRECIATED.
For questions regarding the charter, please call (863) 983-1484. A copy of the pro-
posed Charter is available for inspection at Clewiston City Hall, 115 W Ventura
Avenue, Clewiston, FL.


yards, two touchdowns and one
interception.
Moore Haven 34, Boca Ra-
ton Christian 7: Fred Hall led
the Terriers with three rushing
touchdowns on 11 carries for 110
yards in their win.
Quarterback Dalton Britt (11-
for-18 passing, 171 yards, two
touchdowns, one interception)
threw both scores to Xavier Fagan
(seven receptions, 137 yards) in
this game.
Now that Moore Haven is 4-0
heading into district play, they
have garnered some respect from
the Associated Press.
Though the Terriers are not
, ranked in the top five of the Class
1A poll, they did receive 12 votes.
If the AP gave rankings from
1-10 in Class IA, Moore Haven
would be No. 9 this week, just
ahead of American Heritage-
Delray, last year's Class 1A state
champion.


Tomorrow's games
All teams will be in district play
this week, with Moore Haven
needing to win their game the
most.
Only two teams in each district
make the playoffs, which means
.if any team loses more than one
district game, they could be in
trouble.
SMoore Haven plays at home
against St. John Neumann, who
qualified for last year's Class 1A
playoffs.
Glades Day hosts their home-
coming game against Evangelical
Christian at Gator Field.
Pahokee will play on the road
against Melbourne Central Catho-
lic, while Glades Central will be
traveling to Cardinal Gibbons.
Next week, Pahokee and
Glades Central have an open
date.

vious week to Glades Central as
they outclassed the favored Stal-
lions.
While American Heritage con-
trolled the game clock and had
64 offensive snaps against only
30 for the Tigers, when it was all
said and done the Tigers brought
home an impressive 26-17 vic-


drive as he dove for the final yard.
Isandro Marquez drilled the point
after to put the Tigers up, 7-0.
The Stallions then marched 78
yards on 20 plays and used almost
10 minutes off the clock, scoring
with 10:31 remaining in the half.
Quarterback Billy Strode ran
the final yard and Justin Haig add-
ed the extra point.
After an exchange of punts,
the Tigers moved 84 yards in 4
runs by Harris.

tory.
When Clewiston had the ball,
they wasted little time in chomp-
ing up yards with tailback Darris
Hughes running through holes
opened by great offensive line
blocking.
Hughes finished the night
with 207 yards on 13 carries and
scored twice.
The Tigers got an early break
when the Stallions mishandled
the opening kickoff and Hughes
pounced on the ball at the Ameri-
can Heritage 30.
Duke Ewan capped the six play


The biggest chunks came on a
38 yard run and 25 yard scamper
for the touchdown with only 45
seconds remaining.
The extra point attempt was
foiled by a snap problem with
Harris being stopped as he at-
tempted to convert on a run.
The Tiger defense gave up a
cheap touchdown on American
Heritage's first possession of the
second half on a blown coverage
play.
Strode hit uncovered wide-
out Letron Harrell who raced 83
yards.

Haig's point after was good
and the Tigers were trailing, 14-
13.
After another exchange of pos-
sessions, Clewiston'got the ball
on their 37 with 33 seconds left
in the third. Marquez hit flanker
Jamarcus Smith in the flats and
he slipped up the sidelines for a
27-yard gain.
The Tigers then slipped Smith
into the deep snap position and
he rolled around the left side for
another 24 yards.
On the first play of the final pe-
riod, Marquez hit fullback Leon-
ard Newton in the end zone cor-
ner for a 12-yard touchdown. The
Tigers attempted a 2-point pass
conversion but it was incomplete
and Clewiston was nursing a 19-
14 lead.
The Tiger defense gave up one
first down on the Stallion's follow-
ing possession and then forced a
punt.
Haig pinned the ball at the Ti-
ger 13. After an incidental face
mask penalty against American
Heritage, Newton lost a handoff
and Greg Bryant recovered for the
Stallions.
The Tiger defense, which had
been bending but not breaking
most of the night, then held them
on downs and forced a 31 yard
field goal by Haig, narrowing the
gap to 19-17.
Haig put the kickoff through
the end zone for a touchback and
the Tigers put the ball in play at
the 20 with 5:58 left in the con-
test.
On the first snap, Hughes
broke loose up the middle and
raced'68 yards to the Stallion 12.
The Tigers wasted no time as
Hughes then covered the last 12
yards untouched, followed by
Marquez's extra point to finish the
game's scoring.
The Stallions mounted a drive
against a prevent Tiger defense
and drove down the field mak-
ing two desperation fourth down
conversions.
They had first and goal from
the 8 yard line but after two in-


complete passes and a six-yard
run, the defense stuffed Strode on
a quarterback option on fourth
down from the two-yard line.
The Tigers then ran out the game
clock and moved their record to
3-2:
Clewiston's defense put forth
a very stout effort with many of
the offensive starters also seeing
extensive time on the other side
of the ball.
Defensive end Adam Trevino
was all over the field as he carded
10 tackles, an assist, a quarter-
back sack for a 12 yard loss and a
run sack. Linebacker Fred Wash-
ington also was key as he had 9
tackles, an assist and a run sack.
Linebacker Leonard Newton
also came up with a fumble re-
covery late in the third period to
thwart a long Stallion drive.
On the season, Harris reached
the 1,000 yard mark rushing and
has an impressive 11-yard av-
erage.
After the game Hughes
said, "Our offense talked
about redeeming ourselves af-
ter Glades Central. The o-line
did the job and we took it to
them tonight."
Tiger Coach Joe Roth was
full of praise for the team say-
ing, "This was a big bounce
back performance against a
very good football team. We
are right where we need to be
as we head into district play."
The Tigers kick off their

discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating
4-H: Why doesn't Glades County have a community 4-H Pasture
where kids that don't live out of town can have animals to show in 4-H?
It's amazing to me that Glades County is all about Agriculture, and does
not try and involve the children in Ag. for future generations. What is up
with that? Is it only the kids of farmers and ranchers that can do this?
Do you want to keep it in only certain families? I do know that some
concerned parents let others keep animals in their pastures. Now, I don't
have a child that wants to do this, but know there are some out there.
I have found out that other counties have 4-H pastures where the kids
can have access to housing and feeding their animals. They also have
horse clubs, rodeos, etc. Come on, lets do something about this. How,
you say? Well, here we go again, back to JJ Wiggins and what they are
suppose to do. They probably won't. They think that if you can get the
kids into church (have they not heard of cowboy church?) Then that is
all they have to do. It's for kids not adults. Well, it's something to think
about anyhow. Oh by the way, this was brought up to me by my children
who are adults.

The History of Florida's Indians


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Lofty clouds basking in soft
Shades of orange and pink filled
the afternoon sky. Soft shafts of
light passing through the clouds
penetrated the leafy forest cano-
py below. Forest shadows, nour-
ished by the light, cast long dark
images across the round thatched
huts that stood inconspicuously
in the small forest clearing.
A cooking fire, glowing red in
the afternoon shadows, illuminat-
ed the surrounding huts. Droplets
of fat, falling from the roasting
venison, gave birth to gray wisps
of -smoke that drifted ghostlike
through the village, leaving invis-
ible trails of tantalizing aromas.
This scene was repeated
countless times when the hunting
groups in Florida evolved to food
gatherers and established villages
in the Florida wilds. Today we are
going to take "A Walk inThe Past"
and visit these ancient Floridians.
The first Paleo Indians migrat-
ed into Florida when the Ice Age
was coming to a close approxi-
mately 11,000 to 12,000 years
ago. The total landmass of Florida
was much larger during that pe-
riod, due to the low sea levels cre-
ated by the Ice Age. A wide savan-
nah extended westward 60 to 100
miles along the entire west coast
of present Florida.
Low sea levels created a much
drier Florida. Many of the present-
day rivers and lakes didn't exist.
The main sources of water for the
animals and Paleo Indians came
from deep springs and surface
water that accumulated in lime-


stone catchment basins, forming
water holes and shallow lakes.
Rainfall was less than today, so
some of the water holes and lakes
were temporal, replenishing only
when the rains came.
Scrub vegetation, grassy prai-
ries and savannahs covered much
of the arid peninsula. Forest of
oaks and hickory existed in places
where water could be found and
coastal marshes formed along the
coast.
Many of the large mammals
that are extinct today lived and
flourished when the Paleo Indi-
ans first arrived in Florida. The
grasslands supported the horse,
bison, camel and mammoths. Gi-
ant land tortoises and armadillos
inhibited the drier areas, while
tapirs, ground sloths, and mast-
odons lived in the forest. Almost
all the large land mammals van-
ished between 12,000 B.C. and
11,000 B.C.
The Paleo Indians living then
and other Indians living thousands
of years later have left wonder-
ful artifacts behind. The artifacts
have helped archeologists create
a written record of their cultures.
These written records. are some-
times contested by various arche-
ologists. Unfortunately, timelines
and cultural developments are
included in these debates. Time
spans and the cultural develop-
ment of Florida Indians aren't
written in stone and do vary. The
cultural periods and time spans
listed below are close, but do vary
among Florida archeologists.
*Early Archaic period envel-
ops 10,000 B.C. to 6,000 B.C. The


beginning of settled communi-
ties. The hunter-gatherers started
using a broader range of plants
and animal for food. Oak and
hardwood forestation state wide
because of increased rainfall.
-Middle Archaic period envel-
ops 5000 B.C to 2000 B.C. Seden-
tary populations increased using
a broader variety of tools. Sea lev-
els reached present day levels.
*Late Archaic envelops 2000
B.C. to 1200 B.C. Indians started
making fiber tempered pottery.
The raised sea level created a wet-
ter environment, which increased
mixed forest of pine and cypress.
*Woodland period envelops
1200 B.C. to 1000 A.D. Old fiber
tempered pottery started evolving
with new designs. Communities
developed more complex politi-
cal and religious practices.
oMississippian period envel-
ops 1000 A.D. to 1600 A.D. Cul-
tures more complex with new
ideas from spreading northern
cultures. Corn, beans and squash
were grown in the panhandle.
*Acculturative period envel-
ops 1600 A.D. to 1710 A.D. The
Europeans arrived, imposing
great changes on the Indian cul-
tures which ultimately wiped out
the Indian populations.
There were once numerous In-
dian nations living in Florida with
diverse cultures. Unfortunately,
European contact starting in the
early 1500s brought total destruc-
tion to these nations. Listed are
some of the nations that were
recorded by European explorers,
clergymen and ship wreck survi-
vors.

Sheriff starts new senior citizen safety program


Sheriff Stuart Whiddon has
started a new safety initiative to as-
sist senior citizens or homebound
patients living alone in Glades
County. It is called the "Are you
okay? program." This program
is a very effective tool for senior
citizens and the law enforcement
community.
Once you enroll in the pro-


gram, our computerized system
will place a call to your house ev-
ery day at a predetermined time
chosen by you. All you have to do
is answer the phone and you will
be greeted with a recorded mes-
sage. After you hear the message,
simply push one of the 12 buttons
on the phone. By doing this, it
verifies that you are okay and do


not need emergency assistance or
services.
If for any reason you do not
answer your phone, we will call
you back in 15 minutes. If you still
do not answer, we will physically
check on you at your residence,
giving you the peace of mind that
someone is coming to help you.
The program is very flexible, you


tell us when to start and stop the
program as to accommodate
your lifestyles and when you are
at home.
This program is free to enroll.
All you have to do is request an
enrollment form at the front desk
of the Sheriff's Office or ask a
deputy to bring one to your resi-
dence.

Green Cane Harves


Should the industry
cease burning for
'greener' alternative?

By Nina G. Wills
INI Florida
Green cane harvest is recog-
nized as a new environmentally-
friendly method of harvesting
sugarcane, but the possibility of
the Glades area sugarcane indus-
tries adopting the method any
time soon is unlikely.
"Green cane harvest looks
good on paper, but implementing
it in the Glades right now is just
not practical," Barbara Miedema,
Vice President of Public Affairs
and Communications of Sugar
Cane Growers Cooperative of
Florida, said.
Typically, sugarcane is burned
prior to harvest to remove loose
adhering leaves called cane trash,
which contains no sugar and is
of little economic value. Remov-
ing this trash makes both manual
and mechanical harvest easier.
Burning cane, though, produces
fall-out,, smoke and ash that is
carried by the winds and depos-
ited on the ground, causing some
air pollution.
Green cane harvest is the
method of harvesting sugarcane
without burning. After a green
cane harvest, a trash blanket of
leaves remains on the field. In


certain regions, this trash blan-
ket helps reduce soil erosion and
adds organic matter to the soil
acting as a fertilizer. There is also
no fall-out and no risk of air pol-
lution.
"The sugarcane industry as a
whole is coming across increased
pressure to stop burning," said
Dr. Robert Gilbert, associate pro-
fessor of agronomy at University
of Florida's Everglades Research
and Education Center (EREC) in
Belle Glade.
He has studied green cane har-
vest for two years. In his research,
he has found that green cane
harvest will be most beneficial
to areas on sloping lands and in
dry climates. These are complete
opposites of the conditions in the
Glades.
Gilbert believes that green
cane systems are more likely to
be adopted by sand land growers
because these soils would ben-
efit from the added organic mat-
ter. His research shows that the
trash blanket does not have many
benefits for sugarcane grown on
muck since the soil is already rich
in nutrients.
Gary Crews, General Manager
of Sugar Cane Operations Florida
at A. Duda & Sons Inc., questions
how area farmers would deal
with the trash that is left after a
green cane harvest.
"I hate to even think about
going to green cut cane," Crews
said.


He has managed 25,000 acres
of sugarcane fields for over 30
years with Duda and knows that
certain varieties of sugarcane
cannot be harvested by the green
cane method.
When the trash matter is thick
on the ground, the amount of
sunlight the roots receive is re-
duced and plant growth is stifled.
If the sugarcane grows back at a
slower rate, production will drop.
Some varieties of sugarcane will
rot and never grow back, accord-
ing to Crews. Hauling the trash
blanket away would also be ex-
pensive and time consuming and
would slow down harvesting.
In January 2009, Dr. Gilbert
and his team will begin further
experiments with green cane
harvest in the Glades. Gilbert's
research will show if green cane
harvesting is even "economically
viable" for this region.
Until the green cane harvest
method is improved and shows
realistic benefits for the Glades
area sugar industries, the current
method of burning cane will con-
tinue to be preferred.
"I have always been care-
ful to tell the sugarcane growers
in Florida that I am not trying to
force them to adopt green cane
systems, rather trying to generate
sound scientific information on
what benefits and disadvantages
are associated with this system in
Florida," Dr. Gilbert said.
While some sugarcane indus-


tries will use the green cane har-
vest method this season, it will
not be by choice. When condi-
tions do not allow the industries
to obtain a burning permit from
the U.S. Division of Forestry, the
fields are green cane harvested.
If the area is experiencing a
drought or the wind direction
could potentially carry the fire
over roads or near homes, the
burnings are postponed. Farm-
ers must also take into account
where the fall-out will land.
"We don't just light a match
and set a field on fire, there are
guidelines that we must follow
before any fields are burned,"
Crews said.
Both Miedema and Crews be-
lieve that the sugarcane industries
are working towards more en-
vironmentally-friendly practices.
The Sugar Cane Co-op has 21 air
quality monitoring stations and
sends air quality reports to both
the federal and state environmen-
tal protection agencies and the
health department. Other indus-
tries must report their air quality
as well.
Sugarcane is the highest-value
row crop in Florida, where half
of the United States' sugarcane is
produced.
Approximately 445,000 acres
were harvested in 2001, worth
an estimated value of more than
$750 million, according to the
EREC.


Early screening critical in saving lives


By Glenda Wilson
October is 'National Breast
Cancer Awareness Month, and
Hendry Regional Medical Center
wants to remind you that early
detection is the best form of pro-
tection against breast cancer.
According to the American
Center Society, in the United
States, breast cancer is the most
common cancer among women
(other than skin cancer). An es-
timated 178,480 women in the
United States were found to have
had invasive breast cancer in
2007, and about 40,460 women
will die from the disease this year.
Currently, there are slightly over 2
million women living in the Unit-
ed States who have been treated


for breast cancer.
The earlier breast cancer is
found, the better the chances are
that treatment will work. The goal
is to find cancers before they start
to cause symptoms. The size of a
breast cancer and how far it has
spread are the most important
factors in predicting the outlook
for the patient. Early detection
tests for breast cancer save many
thousands of lives each year. The
American Cancer Society recom-
mends that women who are 40
years old and older should have
mammogram screenings every
year and should continue to do
so for as long as they are in good
health.
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-


ter is hosting FREE Lunch and
Learn seminars to educate the
public about breast cancer. The
schedules are as follows:
Wednesday, Oct. 15 (noon to
1 p.m.) Hosted by Dr. Darayes
Mobed, General Surgeon to be
held in the hospital conference
room.
Wednesday, Oct. 15 ( noon to
1 p.m.) Hosted by Dr. Leonard
Carroll, Board-Certified General
Surgeon- to be held in LaBelle at
the Hendry Regional Convenient
Care Center.
Thursday, Oct. 23 (noon to
1 p.m.) Hosted by Dr. Darayes
Mobed, General Surgeon to be
held in LaBelle at the Hendry Re-
gional C'C:'r\ nienri Care Center.


The hospital is also providing
discounted digital mammogram
screenings during the month
of October. Some who register
may qualify for free mammo-
gram screenings through a grant
(provided by Lucy's Angels) and
a program called Project Detect
(provided by the American Can-
cer Society).
Women, take time out of your
busy schedule to protect your
health. Grab your mother, sister,
daughter or a friend and join Hen-
dry Regional Medical Center to
learn more about breast cancer.
Call 863-983-2735 to reserve your
seat for one of the FREE Lunch
and Learn seminars on breast
cancer.


Refresh your keyboarding skills the easy way


Diane Timmons
Okeechobee News
Are you a hunt and peck, two-
fingered typist? I have the web
site for you!
A student of mine wanted to
refresh his typing skills. After a
Google search, we found a web
site at wwvw.powertyping.com
that is an online, free typing tutor.
My student had a typing class in
high school about 50 years ago
and hadn't touched a keyboard
since. A lot of us took typing in
high school. Does that sound like
you? Here's a chance to relearn
those typing skills. You will be
surprised how much comes back
to you,
This web site is set up with typ-


ing drills and games. On the home
page you will be confronted with
a choice of two kinds of typing
exercises: Qwerty and Dvorak.
Sounds like nonsense doesn't
it? Well most of us learned on a
Qwerty keyboard. Take a look at
your keyboard. On the left, just
above the home row, the labeled
keys spell out QWERTY!
So, the short answer is click on
the Qwerty lessons.
Your next screen is very intui-
tive to follow. There are little mes-
sages to guide you.
The first message asks you to
select a lesson. To the right you
will see lessons listed from one to
17. I suggest you click lesson one.
They are listed from easiest home

with the least used characters on
the keyboard.
Then the message asks you to
click the Start button at the bot-
tom of the screen.
Look at the graphic I have
included. As you can see on the
graphic, there is a screen with
letters in groupings of four sepa-
rated by a space.
You will need to click your cur-
sor into the white space at the
bottom of the screen and type the
letters shown at the top of the box
including spaces.
As you type, the interface
helps when you make an error
and gives you words-per-minute


feedback. When you hit an incor-
rect key a little message pops up
and tells you to type the letter you
missed. An underscore helps to
keep your place among the let-
ters you need to type. Click stop
when you are finished and go to
the next lesson.
Amazingly, the student I re-
ferred to rested his fingers on the
home row keys and typed those
keys in the first lesson with very
few errors. It seems the things
you learned back in high school
come back pretty fast. I hope this
is true for you.
I'll be back every Monday to
show you practical uses for your
computer. Happy computing.

SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
IRRIGATION WATER USE PERMIT RENEWAL WORKSHOP
The South Florida Water Management District will begin the water use permit renew-
al process for the Lake Okeechobee Basin, which includes portions of Palm
Beach, Martin, Glades, Okeechobee, Lee and Hendry counties. All individual and
major general water use permits for irrigation withdrawals from Lake Okeechobee
or its tributaries must be renewed by February 28, 2009. Since Water Use Per-
mits have a finite duration, they must be renewed in order to re-establish the right
to use water. Applications for permit renewals will be evaluated against criteria
contained in updated rules.
In order to explain the revised rules and renewal process, the first informational
workshop for the Basin will be held at the Hendry County Extension Office/Dallas
Townsend Agricultural Center located at 1085 Pratt Blvd. in LaBelle
(863-674-4092). The workshop will be on October 16th beginning at 10:00 a.m.
The workshop is scheduled to inform permit holders of the renewal process, pro-
cessing fees, deadlines and to assist with any problems or questions.
Additional information can be found on the Water Use Permit Renewal page on the
District web site at www.so md.agv or by calling the informational hotline a
(800) 547-2694.

Glades County Library to use collection agency


The Glades County Board of
County -Commissioners, Glades
County Public Library and Heart-
land Library Cooperative Gov-
erning Board enacted a policy to
use a collection agency to help
encourage patrons with overdue
materials to return them to the
Library.
The 'boards voted to pass the
cost of this service on to each pa-
tron whose account will be han-
dled by the collection agency.


This new policy was developed
with fairness to all Library patrons
in mind. Materials not returned
are not available for others to use
or borrow. Also,.if materials are
not returned, in most cases, mon-
ey from the Library budget is used
to replace them.
This same money could much
better be used to purchase new
items from patron use instead of
replacing non-returned items.
The Boards hopes this practice


will encourage all library borrow-
ers to return items by the date
due. Most.Library item' may be
renewed by bringing the item
with the patron's library card for
presentation at the circulation
desk. Also, book depositories for
returning material when the li-
brary is closed are conveniently
located for patron use.
The library will still notify pa-
trons that their materials are over-
due and patrons will have ample


time to respond prior to being
turned over for collection. Unique
Management Services has been
selected as the collection agency
for the library.
Unique Management Services
works with libraries throughout
the United States, Canada, and
United Kingdom. They specialize
in the recovery of overdue materi-
als and have an excellent record
of treating patrons professionally.
The library is serious about


recovering overdue materials. Pa-
trons who do not return materi-
als are stealing from the library.
Fortunately, only a very small
percentage of patrons using the
library do not return materials as
agreed.
This new policy will not affect
the cast majority of patrons who
return materials on time.
The library is committed to
provide excellent service and
have materials available that pa-


trons desire. Library material may
be renewed over the phone or at
the circulation desk.
If you currently have overdue
books, please make arrange-
ments to return the items before
action is taken.
For information you may call
the Glades County Public Library
at 863-946-0744.


United States Sugar to begin 2008


- 2009 harvest


CLEWISTON October 3,
2008- U.S. Sugar began its 2008-09
sugarcane harvest Friday morn-
ing and began processing at the
Clewiston Sugar Factory at noon,
October 3. The harvest was de-
layed from its scheduled Oct. 1
start due to rain. The company
plans to harvest 170,396 acres,
yielding an estimated 6.3 million
tons of sugarcane and producing
13.8 million cwt. of raw sugar.
The Clewiston Refinery is pro-
jected to produce 13.1 million cwt
refined sugar.


"Following an excellent repair
season at the raw sugar factory,
we are looking forward to getting
this crop underway," said Robert
Coker, senior vice president, pub-
lic affairs.
Completing a record-breaking
year, the Clewiston Refinery is
400,000 cwt. ahead of its targeted
production for the year. With the
Clewiston Refinery operating at a
record-breaking pace, U.S. Sugar
imported additional raw sugar
from Mexico for the first time and
expanded its sugar sales. Since


May, more than. 48,000 metric
tons of Mexican "estandar" sugar
has been delivered to the refinery
and processed.
"It is important to note that
this imported sugar has enabled
us to process and sell additional
sugar -- above and beyond the
sugar sold contractually for this
year," said Robert Coker.
Coker said that statements
made by competitors regarding
the imported sugar are incorrect.
The company had produced and
delivered all the sugar contracts


sold for 2007-0.8 season. Sugar
contracts are sold well in advance,
with nearly 90% of the sugar that
will be produced during the up-
coming season (starting in Octo-
ber) already sold.
The sugar refining and pack-
aging facility broke production
records at the end of August for
total refined production (12.91
million cwt), packaged produc-
tion (4.65 million cwt), and liquid
sugar production (634,222 cwt).
Previous records: total refined
production (11.34 cwt, set in 05-


06), packaged production (4.13
million cwt., set in 03-04) and
liquid sugar production (514,341
cwt, set in 06-07).
Three years ago, the Refinery's
capacity was expanded to enable
the facility to refine all of the com-
pany's raw sugar production.
Current capacity is 45,000 cwt. or
2250 tons per day. The expansion
along with the enhanced high
quality sugar produced by the
modernization and consolidation
of the Clewiston Mill and a stable


credited with the record produc-
tion.
U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art
sugar factory in Clewiston is the
result of a project, termed "Break-
through" for its dramatic consoli-
dation and transformation of the
Company's two older raw sugar,
milling operations. Thethree-year
construction project incorporated
the best.sugar technology from


team of refinery employees are around the world.


Business region bands together for economic development


SOUTHWEST FLORIDA-The
Southwest Florida Economic De-
velopment Partners, a volunteer
initiative of the economic devel-
opment executives working on
regional branding and market-
ing opportunities for Collier, Lee,
Charlotte, Sarasota, Glades and

creative marketing firm of Chisa-
no Marketing Group to develop its

keting campaign.
"We are excited about the
many opportunities to region-
ally brand and market economic
diversification in Southwest
Florida," said Tammie Nemecek,
President of the Economic Devel-
opment Council of Collier County.
"Chisano Marketing Group will be

ate an image for Southwest Flor-
ida as a place to relocate and/or


grow your business, particularly
those companies providing high-
wage, value-added jobs."
Chisano Marketing Group is a
full-service marketing firm with

Dayton, Ohio. The firm was cho-
sen from a pool of agencies re-
viewed by the Southwest Florida

to provide a wide scope of ser-
vices aimed at raising the regional
appeal of Southwest Florida as a
destination for businesses.
"The hiring of a creative mar-
keting firm is an important first
step toward accomplishing our
goal of developing ,a regional
identity and brand for Southwest
Florida," said Jim Moore, Interim
Director for the Lee County Office
of Economic Development. "This
is truly the first time that such a
regional initiative has taken place


in this part of the state."
Don Root, Director of the Eco-
nomic Development Office of
Charlotte County, noted the initia-
tive could encourage more busi-
nesses to expand here and bring
in more grants to spur economic
development. "This gives us an
opportunity to work .collectively
and leverage our regional assets
and lead the state of Florida into
a new era of job creation."
SEffective Oct. 6, Chisano Mar-
keting Group will work to under-
stand the various communities in
the region along with the unique

alesce an image that effectively
demonstrates the regional ability
to attract and grow the targeted
business clusters that will pro-
duce high-wage jobs and diversify
the region's economy.
"The communities through-


out our region are quite diverse.
But this regional partnership pro-
vides us with a valuable oppor-
tunity to work together toward
the common goal of supporting
economic development in South-
west Florida," said Ron Zimmerly,
Economic Development Manager
for the Hehdry County Economic
Development Council, Inc.
Tracy Whirls, Executive Direc-
tor of the Glades County Econom-
ic Development Council, com-
mented, "We are very pleased to
be part of this new and exciting
initiative. The economic develop-
ment leaders in the six counties
of our region are working toward
the shared objective of improv-
ing the economic environment
throughout Southwest Florida."
Chisano Marketing Group
will begin by facilitating a meet-
ing with representatives from the


various economic development
organizations throughout the re-
gion and select a group of other
stakeholders. Information from
the meeting will then be used
to create a written communica-
tions and marketing plan that will
include a timeline and detailed
budget to implement at a future
date the following items or others
as deemed appropriate:
Regional identity and brand
development, to include new
logo and motto. This will also in-
clude incorporating logo-identity
into the design of letterhead, en-
velopes, website and other out-
reach material.
Creation "of initial marketing
collateral.
Newsletter, brochure and flyer
templates.
Web-ready logo artwork.
Development of a detailed


communications plan and bud-
get to inform regional stakehold-
ers and target industry businesses
within and outside the region.
The plan will include a menu of
choices from which the stake-
holders can choose.
"Southwest Florida has so
many unique assets that busi-
nesses desire in choosing exactly
where to locate and whether to
expand," said Kathy Baylis, Presi-
dent of the Economic Develop-
ment Corporation of Sarasota
County. "This initiative will help
promote these assets to more
businesses and allow them to un-
derstand what this region has to
offer."


Biomass facility support grows to aid in renewable energy


TALLAHASSEE-Florida's
Public Service Commission (PSC)
has further supported develop-
ment of renewable energy tech-
nology by approving Progress
Energy Florida's (Progress) pur-
chase of firm capacity and energy
from a proposed Vision/FL, LLC
(Vision) biomass facility.
"Biomass facilities are impor-
tant in meeting Florida's renew-
able energy goals and in develop-
ing a more diverse generation mix
within the state," said PSC Chair-
man Matthew M.-Carter II. "Con-
verting crops to fuel reduces our
dependence on expensive fossil
fuels and helps to meet Florida's
growing energy demand." The re-
newable energy facility will be a
combined ethanol/electric power
plant which will convert sugar
juice from sweet sorghum into
ethanol. The remaining waste
will be used as fuel for a steam
boiler that will produce up to 50
megawatts (MW) of electricity.
Vision intends to construct and
operate the biomass electric gen-
erating facility in Osceola County.
Vision plans to sell 40 MW of firm
capacity a and associated energy
from the facility to Progress for 25
years beginning January 1, 2010.
The facility is expected to serve


the energy needs of- approxi- latory authority over utilities in the.
mately 24,000 homes. The PSC areas of rate base/economic regu-
is committed to making sure that lation; competitive market over-

A (Not so!) Modest reflection on current issue


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A minister colleague talked
about Church functions that
touch the vast majority of people
whether they are "active" or not.
He called them the "Hatch-
Match-Dispatch" functions of
ministry. The Church is involved
in baptisms for many at the time
children are born (or "hatched")
into the world.
The Church is also involved in
"matching" when people choose
to get married, many coming to
Churches to receive a blessing
and have a formal service.
"Dispatch" is also a Church
function where many share in
the send off to the life to come
through a service in a Church.
(Another minister keeps what
he calls his "F.B.O. List" That's his
list of inactive members who will
be around "For Burial Only!")
Their expectations are for the
Church to be involved in these
major events in their lives whether
or not they otherwise participate.
I am usually happy to accom-
modate people at these major
milestones. whenever it is possi-
ble and share with them in those


special moments.
Governments likewise share in
these events; issuing birth certifi-
cates or death certificates or mar-
riage licenses.
The governmental functions
and Church functions occur al-
most simultaneously.
We get birth certificates from
the government and baptismal
certificates from the Church
where the special occasion took
place.
In many jurisdictions, a baptis-
mal record is of legal value and I
try to be very accurate in record-
ing information about a person's
name, date and place of birth,
parents, etc.
Likewise I record burials with
information about the deceased
and his age, known reasons, etc.
in the event that this information
will be needed again.
The government issues a death
certificate to assist in the civil mat-
ters surrounding the end of life.
The state functions about birth
and death are separate from the
Church functions denoting new
life or the departure from this life
as marked by Church services.
The two are separate and dis-
tinct. Each has its place for it's
citizens-members.


However, in the case of
"matching" there is a "Marriage
License".that is issued by the gov-
ernment. For many years now, I
have blessed marriages and the
state has first issued a "marriage
license."
Unlike other parts of the world
'where governments offer a civil
service and then the marriage
that takes place at Church fol-
lows; they seem to be co-mingled
here.
As a result, people regard
themselves as "married" on the
basis of a civil ceremony which
may or may not reflect parts of
what marriage is understood to
be by many others.
People can be "married" by
a justice of the peace, a notary
public, or judge; all of whom are
concerned about the legalities of
the union; and may only coinci-
dentally have a concern about the
other dynamics and dimensions
of the joining together of two
people.
There are concerns about pre-
nuptual agreements and other le-
galities; a part of a union and with
some impact on "marriage" but
that are not the whole matter.
I asked one expert in civil law
about verbal contracts one day;


if verbal contracts are valid in the
eyes of the law. He assured me
that they were.
I also asked him if the latest
contract took place over earlier
contracts; like the "last will" as a
contract took priority of all those
that had been previously made.
I was deemed to be right again.
Then I asked about that place in
the marriage service where a per-
son commits themselves to the
other "With all that I have and all
that I am..." and would this take
priority over other, pre-nuptual
agreements between the couple.
He didn't like my question!
In fact, religious marriages
are different in nature than other
"marriages" and involve another
kind of commitment.
I believe that many of the rela-.
tive issues surrounding marriage
are confused when two distinct
"matching" events are seen as the
same; they are not.
There are differences in pur-
poses and differences in under-
standings about what it is all
about.
The waters are muddied when
they are equated.
No such problems exist with
births-baptisms or deaths-burials
because the functions of the gov-

ernment and Church are separate
and distinct.
I'd like to see the government
go about the business of unions
and the Church go about the
business of marriage as is done in
other places and in the other key
areas that denote major events in
people's lives.
Maybe this is an area of "sepa-
ration of Church and state" that
needs further clarification and
might offer something to people
as they make major choices and
commitments for a major event
in life.
Marriages were performed for
centuries by Churches long, long
before "licenses to marry" were
required.


Today we have distinct func-
tions meeting distinct needs and
birth certificates and death cer-
tificates have a valid place in our
world; a separate place from the
religious one.
There is something very ap-
pealing to me about having the
same concept being true for
unions and marriages; each hav-
ing its place and the two being
separate.
It's something like comparing
the "left" to the "north"; some-
times they are the same, some-
times a bit our of phase, but
sometimes radically different.
If the.difference is important, it
should not be ignored.

"HOW MUCH MORE ARE YOU, THE CITIZENS
OF HENDRY COUNTY, WILLING TO TAKE?"
* Ronnie Lee fired as Clewiston Chief of Police for FAILING to comply with
a criminal investigation. "Clewiston News December 1976"

* Ronnie Lee hires Wyatt Henderson who worked under FALSIFIED employ-
ment records while employed as the head of criminal investigations
with the Hendry County Sheriff's Department. Mr. Henderson went on to
serve time in prison. "January 1996"

* Ronnie Lee hires convicted drug felon Terry L. Garnto which ultimately
resulted in the DEATH of Kristina Waddell. "Ft. Myers News Press July 5,
1998"

was defeated by Steve Worley for Sheriff of Hendry County. "November
2000"

* Governor Bush announces State of Florida crime rate has record reduc-
tion. However Hendry County has 18% CRIME INCREASE under Sheriff
Lee. "July 2006 FDLE website"

* Ronnie Lee is the first Sheriff in the history of Hendry County to have his
own deputies vote a UNION into the Sheriff's Office. "Sunday Morning

* Hendry County Sheriff's Office FAILED Florida Department of Law
Enforcement records audit and receives 90 days probation to clean up
records or loose access to FDLE's website. "August 2008 FDLE"

Throughout my campaign for the office of Sheriff, my goal was to finally
remove Mr. Lee and his type of law enforcement from this county. Mr.
Lee's career has been made up of promises that he has failed to keep to
the citizens of Hendry County. As his record shows he has provided
"incompetent law enforcement in exchange for your tax dollars." Ladies
and gentleman your tax dollars are spent more on the legal defense for
his incompetencies than on your protection. It's time to give someone
else a chance to change this trend! On November 4, 2008 vote for Steve
Whidden for Sheriff, I know I am!

A nice Biblical Love


Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
There are many beautiful love
stories in the Bible. Boaz and
Ruth. Jacob and Rachel. Joseph
and Mary.
But perhaps my favorite is
the story of Isaac and Rebekah.
It has all the ingredients of a
true, wholesome love story. It
has a concerned father -- Abra-
ham -- who doesn't want his son
to marry "just any girl." It has a
handsome Romeo by the name
of Isaac and, and a beautiful Juliet
named Rebekah.
The cupid in the story is an el-
derly man named Eleazar. You'll
find all the details in chapter 24 of
the Book of Genesis. Let me tell it
to you briefly.
Father Abraham, the.Bill Gates
of his day, called his chief servant,
Eleazar, to his side.
"I have a serious mission to
send you on," Abraham said sol-
emnly to his trusted, old servant.
"What is it, my lord?" Eleazar
asked obediently.
"Well, it's about time my son
Isaac found himself a wife."
"There are many beautiful girls
around here," answered Eleazar.
"Yes, but they are Canaanites,"
Abraham protested. "They do not
worship the true and living God."


Abraham continued. "I want you
to go to the homeland where I'm
from, find a beautiful girl there
among my kindred, a girl who
loves and serves God."
"I accept the assignment," said
Eleazar. "With God's help, I will
go and find a wife for Isaac."
Eleazar asked the Lord for a
sign and it was this: "Seeing there
will be many girls at the town
well, and I, as an old man will
not be able to determine who is
the most beautiful and the best
choice for Isaac, give me this sign:
May the right girl not only agree
to give me a drink of water, but
may she offer to draw water for
my camels, as well."
In expectation, Eleazar sat
himself at the town well. Sudden-
ly, he saw a most beautiful young
lady coming to draw water.
"May I have a drink of water
from your pitcher?" he asked.
"Yes, drink, my lord," she re-
plied. "And when your thirst is
satisfied, I'll draw water from the
well. for your camels, too. How
many are there?"
"Ten camels," he answered.
But she didn't complain.
When the last thirsty camel
had been given a drink, Eleazar
asked, "May I ask your name?"
"It's Rebekah," she replied


sweetly.
Space does not permit to tell
all the details of the story, but
the story ends like all true love
stories do. Eleazar returned with
Rebekah. Isaac was happy with
the choice, and he and Rebekah
were married and lived happily
ever after.
But there's more to the story.
This story is a beautiful picture
of the true-life drama that's going
on today. In fact, I'm part of this
plot, and so are you, if you are a
Christian. God, like Abraham of
old, is seeking a bride for His son,
the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Fa-
ther will not be satisfied with any
of the heavenly hosts to be that
bride.
Rather, in his sovereignty, He
has chosen that the bride should
come from a far country -- the
country of earth, and because of
this, "God so loved the world."
He has sent the Holy Spirit --
like Eleazar of old -- who speaks
to hearts at the wells of life. At the
shop. At the store. In the home.
"Will you come and be the
bride of the Lord Jesus Christ?"
He asks. Some Rebekahs say,
"Yes."
Others stubbornly say, "No, I
will not go."
The Holy Spirit is asking, "Will


you be a part of the bride of
Christ? Will you leave the world
and set your eyes on the mar-
riage supper of the Lamb? Will
you meet my heavenly ,saac, the
Lord Jesus Christ, and together
live eternally?"
Is this your hope? Is this your
assurance? Can you truthfully
say, "Oh, I want to see Him, look
upon His face?"

God for Republicans or Dems?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Even though I don't put bum-
per stickers on my truck or place
signs in my yard, I take my voting
responsibilities seriously. I listen,
try to understand, and then make
an informed decision in my vot-
ing. It's not an easy task, and my
cynic side often has trouble be-
lieving all I am told.
I'm not naive enough to be-
lieve that just because a person
is of good character and beliefs
means that person will make a
good political leader, but I do be-
lieve that a good political leader
should have good moral charac-
ter and good moral beliefs. Being
a strong Christian would make
that even better.
Unfortunately, I've taken mea-
sure of what is being offered, and
I find a lot lacking. I find myself
once again turning to God to ask
Him to help guide me in my vot-
ing selections.
For the record, I'm a registered
Republican. My wife is a regis-
tered Democrat. We get informa-


tion, phone calls, and visits from
both parties. Listening to some of
them, you would think that they
were God's gift to whatever needs
I had.
So, the question arises, "Who
really has God on their side?"
Depending on who you asked
of which political persuasion
would probably get you different'
answers. Listening to the many
commercials and commentaries
by various politicians, I think both
the Republicans and the Demo-
crats would claim that God would
side with them.
Is God for Republicans or is
God for Democrats? We might
find the answer for that by turn-
ing to Joshua 5:13-14 in the
Bible: "Joshua looked up and
saw a man standing in front of
him with a drawn sword in his


hand. Joshua went up to him and
asked, "Are you for us or for our
enemies?" "Neither," he replied,
"but as commander of the army
of the LORD I have now come."
Here we have the leader of
God's army going out to scout
the nearest Canaanite stronghold,
finding another warrior already
on the scene. He asks the strang-
er, who turns out to be an angel,
whether he was on his side or the
opposition. The reply was nei-
ther. He was on th'e Lord's side.
The best question in all of these
debates is not to ask whether God
is on our side or on their side. The
best question to ask is whether or
not we are on God's side.
Our best hope for a future is to
follow God's direction and plan -
to do God's will in our name, not
our will in God's name.


It Must be Love.

It Must be Hospice.

"... you have changed my life and
provided me with the motivation to live
each day to the fullest. Life has become so
much more meaningful every moment."

It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen or felt.This is why, in recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness. Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a

explained that many relatives
and family friends had shared the
residence over the years includ-
ing her sister, Hadassah Bakeev,
Davronjon Bakeev and their two
children. Another sister, Tabitha
Labay, lived there along with her
husband, Scott Labay and their
two children. The mother of the
three sisters, Bettie Farabee, had
also shared the home.
Ms. Winebark had heard de-
tails in connection with Mr. Ba-
keev's 2002 disappearance, and
she informed the local sheriff's
office in Idaho.
Subsequently, Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) agent, Vaden Pollard, ob-
tained a search warrant and the
Muse residence was investigated
beginning Aug. 16, 2007. The 50-
60 acre rural homestead includes
a citrus grove and other buildings.
Agent Pollard told the jury how
K9 cadaver dogs from Sarasota
County were used to canvass the
property.
Agent Pollard implemented
the use of a metal probe near a
barn, that indicated conditions
were right for the use of a back-
hoe, which slowly removed one-
inch layers of soil, and a bone was
revealed. Excavation of this grave
site was completed Aug. 21.
Hadassah Bakeev, and Tabitha
Labay were then arrested in con-
nection with the death of Mr. Ba-
keev.
FDLE located Jessy Wayne
Castelucci, 26, in Ohio, and he
commented that he had not been
in the state of Florida; however,
Agent Pollard said that it was doc-
umented in a traffic report that
Mr. Castelucci was stopped by
Florida law enforcement on Nov.
25, 2002. When agents found Mr.
Castelucci in Ohio, the defendant
commented that he did not want
to get stuck with the bad end of
the incident.
According to Agent Pollard, ev-
idence obtained with the remains
were duct tape, a black plastic

a child that couldn't learn. I have
worked with children who were
blind, crippled, autistic, hyperac-
tive or had other special needs;
i arid they all learned something.
Children just need an adult to
motivate them and make them
feel unique.
What puts a smile on your
face?
Honestly, children put a smile
on my face. They make me feel
like I'm a very special lady. I re-
member they used to come up
to me and say "Mrs. Brown can I
have ahug", "I loveyou", and even
"You smell so good" or "I have on
your favorite color today, purple."
The students I worked with years
ago still come up to me and hug
me. They let me know that I'm
still special to them. One of my
former students named their first
daughter after me, Eliza. What an
honor that was for me. My family
puts a smile on my face; and yes,
Claudia and my grandchildren put
an extra smile on my face. Most of
all retiring put a bigger smile on
my face. My life is not boring. I'm
enjoying fishing, visiting, window
shopping, walking and spending
time with my husband of forty-
five years. I don't regret retiring. I
really miss the children.
What would you like to say to
the residents of Glades County?

Area of count: The area of
a count is not a circle, but the
boundaries of a County. The idea
is to have a contiguous interlock-
ing set of non-overlapping counts
across North America. It is desir-
able to get as much of each coun-
ty surveyed as resources permit.
Timing of the count: Each
spring and fall another picture
will be acquired of the migra-
tion pattern. From these we may
discover the shape of migration
particular to each species. The
date of NAMC has been chosen
to capture as many migrants as
possible before they reach the
final destination. It will not be
peak migration everywhere. The
Southern areas will have the lin-
gerers and the northern areas will
still await many of the breeding
species when the spring count
takes place.


bag and a 9mm shell casing. De-
fense attorneys asked if the bullet,
referred to in the opening state-
ment, had been matched to the
shell casing and the agent replied
that it had not.
A search of the residence was
conducted by FDLE agent, Scott
Gibson. He discovered a bullet
hole in the carpet and floor of the
residence. A portion of flooring,
central air duct-work, insulation
and a bullet were presented in
court. A long red stick had been
inserted into the hole in the floor
and duct-work in order to show
the angle of the bullet's entry,
which may have been approxi-
mately 40 degrees. Defense at-
torneys inquired about any blood
found at the residence and Agent
Gibson reported none.
Davronjon Bakeev's mother-
in-law, Bettie Farabee, was intro-
duced as a witness. She explained
that Mr. Castelucci lived with her.
family at the Muse residence, pos-
sibly for weeks, but she was un-
sure. Ms. Farabee recalled how
she and her four grandchildren
were taken on a trip to Tampa
to visit relatives, which may have
been around the time of the al-
leged incident; however she could
not remember exact dates or time
of day. Hadassah Bakeev and
Jessy Castelucci escorted them to
Tampa, but did not stay. Tabitha
Labay and Scott Labay were not
on the trip. Bettie Farabee noted
that nothing looked out of place
when she returned to Muse.
Karen Cooper, FDLE crime
lab, participated in the retrieval of
remains from the excavation site,
including the duct tape, black
plastic bag and shell casing used
as evidence. A beer can was also
retrieved from the remains exam-
ined at the medical examiner's of-
fice. No finger prints were found
on the can.
At this time, defending at-
torneys asked Ms. Cooper if the
evidence such as the beer can are
listed in a collection of research
documents that are referred to as
discovery. She confirmed it would
be included in discovery.
A forensic anthropologist was
able to identify ancestry, sex, and


First of all I would like for
everyone that can vote: please
VOTE.
Next, I'm asking if anyone
who knows a solution that can
help the young people in our
community, please pass it on to
me. We need to put our heads
together to keep our children in
school to get their education, not
just play sports. We also need a
vocational class or center for the
children that have dropped out of
school. We must have the right at-
titude to help young people to get
them involved in how to acquire
knowledge to better themselves.
What would you like to say to
young people in Glades County?
To the young residents, sign up
to vote; and then VOTE. Remem-
ber you are unique and no mat-
ter what, whether you are here in
the community, or incarcerated,
you are still special. You might
feel like you are worthless and
no one cares. God made you and
everything God makes is good.
There is a reason and purpose for
everything. It is never too late to
turn your life around. The ball is
in your hands. Stop feeling sorry
for yourself or blaming others for
your mistakes. I believe some are
you are holding a lot of burden on
your mind, but you need to find
someone you can trust and share
your feelings with them. We have
some adults that are willing to lis-
ten and might even have some so-
lutions for your problems. Don't
go around with your head down.


Count Dates
The NAMC takes place across
North America on the third Satur-
day of September and the second
Saturday of May each year. The
near-term counts are Sept. 20,
May 9, 2008, and Sept. 19.
Coordination: Each state has a
state coordinator who is respon-
sible for working with county co-
ordinators, providing tally sheets
and instructions, and giving as-
sistance as needed. When the
counts have been completed, the
state coordinator combines the
county counts into a statewide
count. The data will be displayed
on the FOS web site.
County coordinators recruit
participants, frequently through
the local Audubon chapter or
other bird clubs, assign teams to
areas within the county, provide
tally sheets to the teams, and col-
lect the count information after
the count has been completed.
The county coordinators compile
the results from all of the teams
into a single count for the county
and submit the results to the state

approximate height of the recov-
ered remains, and DNA samples
from the victim's mother were
used to identify Davronjon Ba-
keev. A medical examiner also
testified that the beer can was
brought in with the remains; and
that a gun shot wound to a neck


that after the body was dragged
outside, Jessy drank a beer and
threw the can into the grave site.
Mr. Forpones pointed out that
he received no deals for this infor-
mation, and that he testified in or-
der to repay society for the many
bad things he had done.


INI/Nena Bolan
This photo of the jury room at the Glades County courthouse
was taken one and a half years ago. It shows the size of the
room for six jurors.


The defendant's attorneys
noted that Joseph Forpones is in-
carcerated for federal charges on
firearm possession, and has been
arrested seven times. The jail has
housing pods with no doors on
sleeping quarters and each inmate
has access to his own "discovery"
documents within the pods. They
noted that Mr. Forpones could
have read Jessy Castelucci's dis-
covery which contains vital and
personal information about the
defendant and the alleged in-
cident, including the beer can


found with the remains.
However, prosecuting attor-
ney, Dennis Wallace had-Agent
Pollard state that the discovery
research is about 1,300 pages in
length and the beer can is only
mentioned once.
The defense team then asked
for an acquittal siting that time of
death could not be established
by experts, that Bettie Farabee is
unsure of travel dates, the bullet
does not match the shell casing,
and there is no evidence to prove
the victim was killed in the house
or at the grave site.
Judge Schoonover then in-
formed those present that a mo-
tion for acquittal was not grant-
ed.
Dennis Wallace argued in the
closing statement that it was too
difficult for Joseph Forpones to
have located that one statement
about the beer can within the
1,300 pages of discovery. Mr. Wal-
lace reminded the jury that Agent
Pollard had referred to a com-
ment that Mr. Castelucci made in
Ohio about not getting stuck with
the bad end of the incident. Also,
according to a traffic report, Jessy
Castelucci was in Florida about
the time the victim went missing.
Richard Sullivan argued for the
defendant and told the jury that
no one can prove that Davronjon
Bakeev died when Bettie Farabee
and the children were in Tampa.
There were many people living at
the residence. The victim's sister-
in-law, Tabitha Labay and her hus-
band, Scott, did not go to Tampa.
Their whereabouts have not been
established in court. There is no
physical evidence such as finger


prints, blood, hair or fibers; and
the bullet has not been linked to
the shell casing.
Furthermore, according to Mr.
Sullivan, how does the angle of
the bullet hole in the floor come
into play considering his client
was supposed to be standing at
the time of the alleged shooting.
His client was not as tall as Mr.
Bakeev, and the aim of the pistol
would be upwards, not down. He
added that Joseph Forpones had
one year to find the fact about the
beer can within the 1,300 pages
of discovery.
In a final statement, Dennis
Wallace argued that physical
evidence, like blood and finger
prints, was hard to come by since
they had six years to make it go
away. He commented that Jessy
Castelucci had not told the truth
about being in Florida in 2002.
The judge gave the jury final
instructions about their responsi-
bilities and they listened intently.
Six jurors left the court room to
decide a verdict. They were gone
well over an hour, and when they
returned their faces were slightly
flushed with emotion. The judge
had the defendant stand, and he
announced a verdict of not guilty.
Afterwards, Richard Sullivan
was asked about what may have
convinced the jury to choose a
not guilty verdict. He referred to
the witness, Joseph Forpones.
"I don't think the jury found
him credible," he said.
There are two more co-de-
fendants waiting for trial at the
county jail.

vertebrae was most likely the
cause of death.
Joseph Forpones, an inmate,
was called to testify about a con-
versation held with Mr. Castelucci
during their incarceration togeth-
er at the Glades County Detention
Center. Mr. Forpones commented
that Jessy Castelucci had confided
to him about his involvement in
the murder. He said that Caste-
lucci talked about being hired to
work at the residence, that Hadas-
sah Bakeev offering him money
and a car to kill Mr. Bakeev, and
that Davronjon Bakeev "beat on
her." When the victim went in
the house, Jessy tried to jump
him from behind, but the man
was bigger than Jessy and got the
better of him, Mr. Forpones re-
told that one girl came up with a
pistol, and Jessy picked it up and
shot at the guy when Mr. Bakeev
turned to face the girl. It was not-
ed in a previous deposition, that
Mr. Forpones commented Jessy
Castelucci had been standing
when the shot was fired.
Joseph Forpones then re-told

able. Just remember, you are the

life and shape your future.
