A candid Mahoney: Congressman opens up


S. INI/Nena Bolan
U.S. Congressman Tim Mahoney stopped at the Clewiston Inn to speak to local Glades
area officials, Oct 23. He is running for re-election, but recent news of extra-rmarital af-
fairs may hurt his ability to stay in office.



Tim Mahoney speaks


Topics include
ethanol, water, jobs
and judgement

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES/HENDRY -- Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney began
a campaign tour through south
central Florida on Oct. 23, and
stopped in Clewiston to speak
to several local leaders, busi-
ness owners, and to answer
a few questions. He was pre-
pared to talk to his constituents
about local issues as well as his
personal family debacle.
The recent news' of his ex-
tra-marital affairs disappointed
his supporters. He was asked
how it may have impacted his
popularity with voters, and
what could he say or do to re-


gain their confidence..
"I am sorry for their disap-
pointment. I'm ashamed. I
apologize for my shortcomings
and any embarrassment it may
have caused," Tim Mahoney
said.
He went on to say that his
wife and daughter are his first
priority. The congressman be-
lieves he has done right by the
communities he serves, and.
hopes his supporters will real-!
ize that this election is about
their families, and not his. He
feels that each individual voter
will make up his own mind
about him as their representa-'
tive.
.He was asked about the de-
cline of agriculture in commu-
nities around Lake Okeecho-
bee, and what steps have been
taken to sustain agriculture
jobs and implement ethanol
production in the Glades area.
As a member of the House Ag-


riculture Committee, he recog-
nized that agriculture is the sec-
ond largest industry in Florida.
He mentioned his involvement
with the recently passed farm
bill that was important to the
south central part of the state.
"It has been a long time
since a representative has made
a commitment to the Glades
communities," he said.
Historically, it was the most
beneficial farm bill for Florida,
according to the congressman.
Florida is the second largest
recipient of block grants pro-
vided by the bill. The bill funds
research of pest and disease
resistant fruits, vegetables and
specialty crops. It will help in
marketing farmers' products,
and increases funds for emer-
gency food assistance programs
like food banks, food pantries,
and soup kitchens. It also in-

Free hospice and
palliative care from
VA

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

BIG LAKE COMMUNITIES
-- End-of-life health care work-.
ers and family caretakers may
not be aware of the important
differences that some veter-
ans may have had during their
military life. A veteran who
had combat experience or
post-traumatic stress disorder
(PSTD) can have a totally dif-
ferent philosophy of suffering
and death than other terminal
patients.
Deborah Grassman is the
director of hospice and pallia-
tive care at Bay Pines.VA Medi-
cal Center, near St. Petersburg.
She has lead the way in innova-
tive care of dying veterans, and
educating their families about
the needs of former military
personnel. According to Ms.
Grassman, many terminally ill
veterans put on the mask of a
strong and silent type soldier.
seaman or airman. They 'were
psychologically conditioned to
be stoic about death and pain
when they were in the armed
services, and it was for a good
reason back then. It was part of
survival.
; However, back home and
decades later, a veteran may
not realize he does not have
to be what Deborah Grassman
calls a "grin and bear it" type
any more. These stoic patients
have not taken' introspective
Time to seek out the hospice
and palliative care that is of-
fered for free from the Veter-
ans Administration. Congress


passed a law several years ago
that entitled veterans for this
care. The end-of-life service is
.provided at hospitals and dur-
ing in-home care, too.
In order for family mem-
bers and health care workers
to ease the mental and physical
suffering of "grin and bear it"
vets that are dying, they must
be prepared to have an up
front talk that is of the sincerest
psychological relief. According
to hospice experts, creating a
peaceful, emotional environ-
merit is what combat vets, or
vets \ ilh PSTD need the most.
This is because the Idst ex-
perience the vet may hae had
with death \.as in the field of
battle, or at a field hospital
\\ here their world was full of
fear, horror and helplessness.
Some vets have been fighting
that last fight every day of their
lives since they got home. A
great'many World War II vet-
erans have already passed on;
but some in their late eighties
and in their nineties are still
with us. Numerous Korean
War. and VietnamWar vets are
facing terminal illnesses today.
There is still something loved
ones can do for them.
Ms. Grassman mentioned
that it is ok to tell vets they can
let go of stoic pride, to let go of
feeling guilty about the com-
rades they left behind, and to
go ahead and ask for help. Be-
ing tough on the outside is not
necessary anymore, and it will
not help them control life or
death. Go ahead and surrender
to a peaceful end of life. There
is no shame in asking for a glass
of water and pain medication,
or taking a h:nd and giving it a
squeeze.

Attention Glades County

Residents


The IRS has unclaimed money
for some local residents. Refund
checks have been returned as
undeliverable.
The U.S. Internal Revenue Ser-
vice has recently released lists of
names of persons whose income
tax refund checks as well as in
some cases, government stimu-
lus checks have been returned as
undeliverable. These funds have
been sent to "dead mail" with no
one to claim them.
Sixteen Glades County resi-
dents were listed by the IRS as res-
idents of the county, at least when
they filed for their income taxes
for 2007. The average amount of
each of the local checks is $619
with a total amount for the county
of $9,900.
The names and cities listed be-
low should contact the IRS to col-
lect their refund/stimulus checks.

- Service
Lakeport and surrounding area


development tax Nov. 4
What is the Nov. 4 Tourism
Development Ballot question all
about?
On November 4, the citizens of
Glades County will have the op-
portunity to vote on a proposed
Tourism Development referen-
dum that will help local RV Parks,
motels, hotels and other tourism
businesses attract more tourists
to Glades County.
What will the referendum do?
The referendum will impose a
2 percent tax on motel room and
RV park site rentals which are oc-
cupied for six months or less.
Why should I vote yes?
Glades County is one of only a
handful of counties in the state of
Florida which does not impose a
tourism development tax. Tourists
who visit Glades County expect to
pay the tax which can be used to
promote tourism in Glades Coun-
ty, by advertising local attractions,
events and developing tourist and
recreational facilities.
Why is this important?
Glades County is home to 16
miles of Caloosahatchee River-
front, 40 miles of shoreline on
Lake Okeechobee and 52 miles of
canoing trails at Fisheating Creek.
But the county has no money in
its general revenue budget to de-
velop its trailheads and recreation
areas to attract visitors to enjoy
them and no advertising budget
to encourage tourists to visit "glo-
riously natural Glades County."
By enacting the tourism devel-
opment tax, funds generated by
visitors can be used to bring more
visitors to the county, creating
opportunities for Glades County
residents to open new businesses
and create new jobs to serve the
increased demand.
How will the referendum
help?
According to Visit Florida re-
search, 83.9 million tourists vis-
ited Florida in 2006. They spent
$65.0 billion dollars while in the
state, generating $3.9 billion in
state sales tax revenue. The av-
erage tourist spends 5 days in
Florida, while those from Canada
and abroad spent an average of
11 days. By promoting Glades
County more effectively, we hope
to encourage more of those visi-
tors to visit Glades County.
Who will benefit?
Everyone who lives or works
in Glades County will benefit. By
increasing the number of tourists
to visit Glades County, existing


businesses like RV Parks, motels,
restaurants and gas stations will
derive direct benefits. Local festi-
vals, like Chalo Nitka, Christmas
on the Caloosahatchee and the
Ortona Cane Grinding Festival
will benefit from increased atten-
dance, providing increased fund-
raising benefit to support the or-
ganizations which sponsor them.
The increased market will also
encourage other businesses to
expand and new businesses to
open here, providing more op-
portunities for Glades County resi-
dents and their children.
Who decides how tax is
spent?
If the tourism development tax
is approved, a tourism develop-
ment council, appointed by the
Glades County Board of County
Commissioners will determine
how the taxes are spent to pro-
mote tourism in Glades County.
At least four members of the TDC
must be in the lodging business,
while the remainder will repre-
sent other tourism businesses
and include a county commis-
sioner and a Moore Haven City
Councilman.
What is the Glades County
Economic Development Council?
The Glades County Economic
Development Council is a public-
private, non-profit partnership,
made up of Glades County citi-
zens -- who are working hard to
find ways to help businesses in
our county prosper as well as
to attract new businesses to our
community.

Mobile home owners
It is common among mobile
home owners like me to feel like
our elected officials find our in-
terests less important than those
of site built home owners. But,
I have never felt that way about
Senator JD Alexander.
Senator Alexander under-
stands the needs of mobile home
owners and has consistently
stood up for our interests. He has
been a good friend to our com-
munity and other mobile home
communities in his district and I
will be proud to cast my vote for
him this year.

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 Pahokee on
Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee 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 reason) 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
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

Halloween Health and Safety Tips


Ways to keep you
and your family safe
for the holiday

For many people, autumn
events like Halloween and Har-
vest Day are fun times to dress up
in costumes, go trick-or-treating,
attend parties, and eat yummy
treats.
These events are also opportu-
nities to provide nutritious snacks,
get physical activity, and focus on
safety..
Below are tips to help make
the festivities fun and safe for
trick-or-treaters and party guests.

Going trick-or-treating?
*Swords, knives, and similar
costume accessories should be
short, soft, and flexible.
*Avoid trick-or-treating alone.
Walk in groups or with a trusted
adult.


Fasten reflective tape to cos-
tumes and bags to help drivers
see you.

.Examine all treats for chok-
ing hazards and tampering before
eating them. Limit the amount of
treats you eat.

*Hold a flashlight while trick-
or-treating to help you see and
others see you.

*Always test make-up in a
small area first. Remove it before
bedtime to prevent skin and eye
irritation.

Look both ways before cross-
ing the street. Use. established
crosswalks wherever possible.

*Lower your risk for serious
eye injury by not wearing decora-
tive contact lenses.

*Only walk on sidewalks or
on the far edge of the road facing
traffic to stay safe.


*Wear well-fitting masks,
costumes, and shoes to avoid
blocked vision, trips, and falls.

*Eat only factory-wrapped
treats. Avoid eating homemade
treats unless you know the cook
well.

*Enter homes only if you're
with a trusted adult. Otherwise,
stay outside.

*Never walk near lit candles
or luminaries. Be sure to wear
flame-resistant costumes.

Expecting trick-or-treaters or
party guests?
Provide healthier treats for
trick-or-treaters, such as individ-
ual packs of raisins, trail mix, or
pretzels. For party guests, offer a
variety of fruits, vegetable, and
cheeses.
Use party games and trick-or-
treat time as an opportunity for
kids to get their daily dose of 60


minutes of physical activity.
Be sure walking areas and
stairs are well-lit and free of ob-
stacles that could result in falls.
Keep candle-lit jack-o'-lanterns
and luminaries away from door-
steps, walkways, landings, and
curtains.
Place them on sturdy tables,
keep them o6t of the reach of
pets and small children, and nev-
er leave them unattended.
Remind drivers to watch out
for trick-or-treaters and to drive
safely.
Follow these tips to help make
the festivities fun and safe for ev-
eryone!

THIS IS ONE OF THE REASONS CHIEF DEVON LAND FEELS THAT
STEVE HIDDEN IS UNQUALIFIED TO RUN FOR SHERIFF.

FROM OFFICIAL CITY OF CLEWISTON RECORDS
City of Clewiston

Memorandum

Date: 16 April 2007

To: Officer Steve Whidden
Kristine Petersen, Assistant Chief

From: Don R. Gutshall, Chief of Police

DEA Representatives Marie Pikiell and Shawn McDonough were here in
Clewiston Friday April 1,3 to discuss issues with the Task Force.

In short we have been asked to relinquish our place on the DEA Task Force
due to inactivity and lack of case filings by you.

They were quick to point out your efforts and accomplishments on the
Jamaican case and are grateful for your work there, but were mostly con-
cerned that there were few initiations made by you and have been none at all
for some time. Both pointed out your willingness to come when called upon,
but feel the position would be better served by someone able to contribute by
opening / filing cases.

Therefore, you are directed to make arrangements with Agent Pikiell to turn in
any property belonging to DEA and make yourself available for any necessary
debriefings. This should be done during the week of April 23 27. Once you
have completed that process you should contact Assistant Chief Petersen for
reassignment here in Clewiston.

Of course deference should be made in these issues in accordance with your
medical appointments and limitations.

Healthy Families Program Receives Grant from Target


Local Health Dept.
receive grant for
Parent Education
The Hendry and Glades Coun-
ty Health Department Healthy
Families Program announced a
partnership with Target in recog-
nition of its efforts to help parents


create a safe and nurturing envi-
ronment for their children. The
grant will be used to purchase
educational videos, curriculum
and literature in family violence
prevention.
The Healthy Families Program
at the Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments offers home
visiting services to parents-to-be
and new parents, who wish to


learn about positive parenting
techniques, their child's develop-
ment, parent-child activities and
community resources. Home visi-
tors use age appropriate curricu-
lum with parents in the home at
a time that is convenient for the
family.
The educational material from
Target will be used at home visits
and at parent meetings to help


parents learn aboit, stress and
how it affects parenting, positive
communication, anger manage-
ment, etc.
This grant is part of ongoing
efforts by Target to strengthen
families and
communities throughout the
country. Since opening its doors,
Target has given 5 percent of its
income to organizations that sup-


port education, the arts, social
services and volunteerism. Today
that translates to more than $3
million every week.
"At Target, our local grants are
making a difference in the com-
munities we serve," said Laysha
Ward, vice president, community
relations, Target. "We're proud to
partner with Healthy Families as
part of our ongoing commitment


to give back to the communities
where our guests and team mem-:
bers live and work."

Facts about High Blood Pressure


By Glenda Wilson
With approximately 58 million
(one in four) American adults suf-
fering from high blood pressure,
how do you know for certain if
you're at risk? Hendry Regional
Medical Center wants you to arm
yourself with the facts about high
blood pressure.
Understanding blood
pressure.'
High blood pressure, also
known as hypertension, occurs
when the force (or.pressure) of
blood against your artery walls is
too great, causing excessive strain
on your blood vessels. This con-
dition is dangerous because of
the damaging effects that accrue
over time. This damage may not
become apparent until an individ-
ual's blood pressure is shockingly
high. That's why hypertension is
sometimes known as a "'silent
killer."
What causes high blood
pressure?
Several factors are known to
increase blood pressure, or pri-
mary hypertension, including a
personal or family history of high
blood pressure, obesity, heavy
alcohol use, high sodium intake,
and aging. A sedentary lifestyle,
excess stress, low potassium in-
take, low calcium intake, and re-
sistance to insulin may also cause
high blood pressure.
High blood pressure due to a
medical.condition or a side effect
from medication is known as sec-
ondary hypertension. However,
elevated blood pressure may not
always indicate high blood pres-
sure per se. For some people,
just being in a medical setting
or having' their blood pressure
measured by a doctor causes
their blood pressure to rise; this is
called white-coat hypertension.
How is blood pressure
measured?
S'"To measure blood pressure,
your doctor uses an instrument
call a "sphygmomanometer,"


more often referred to as a blood against your artery walls, when
pressure cuff. The cuff is wrapped the heart has just finished pump-
around your upper arm and in- ing.

OPERATION OF THE CITY

* WOULD INCREASE CITY PAYROLL COSTS

* WOULD CONSTRICT COMMISSIONERS FROM MEETING AND TALKING WITH
CITY EMPLOYEES

* CURRENT CITY CHARTER IS NOT TRULY A '1947' DOCUMENT, AS PORTRAYED BY
THE CITY'S AD, BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN UPDATED BY CITY ORDINANCES OVER
THE YEARS

By Brenda Barnes
Get ready everyone, 'tis the
season, flu season 1 mean. Yearly
flu vaccinations should begin in
September or as soon as the vac-
cine is available.
People can start getting the flu
as early as October, but it usu-
ally peaks in January. The flu vi-
ruses are usually spread when
an infected person doesn't cover
their mouth where they cough or
sneeze. Sometimes people get in-
fected from touching something
with flu viruses on it.
Then before they get a chance
to wash their hands, they end
up touching their nose, eyes, or
mouth and "presto," you have
just infected yourself with the fly
virus!
Hand washing is a great way
to help protect yourself. Wash
your hands often and try not to
touch your face (don't rub those
tired eyes until you've washed
your hands!). Be sure to cover'
your mouth when you cough or
sneeze. Don't use your hand!
Use a tissue, or get into the
habit of coughing and sneezing
into the bend of your arm. Try to,
keep your distance from anyone
that's sick, and if you're the one
who's sick, keep your distance:
from others or stay home!
Some symptoms of flu can in-
dlude fever, headache, extreme
tiredness, dry cough, sore throat,


runny or stuffy nose, and muscle
aches.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
people can infect others starting
1 day before symptoms develop
and up to 5 days after becoming
sick.
That means you might actually
pass on the flu to someone else
before you even know that you
are sick! The best way to prevent
the flu is to get a flu shot each fall.
When you start seeing pumpkins,
it's time to get your flu shot! Some
people think that you can get the
flu from the shot, but the viruses


in the flu shot are killed (inactivat-
ed), so you can't get the flu from
getting a flu shot!
There are some minor effects
that can occur and generally only
last a couple of days. Some effects
can include mild soreness, red-
ness or swelling in the area where
the shot was given.
Or some may experience a low
grade fever and mild body aches,
but most people that get a flu shot
have no serious problems from it.
Talk to your doctor about recom-
mendations for getting a flu shot.
Remember, be healthy and be
happy!

Tigers Whip Pope John Paul II


Submitted to INI/Jeff Barwick
Running back Joey Cordova breaks loose for a 17 yard
gain.


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston used the running
of tailback Darris Hughes and
passing of quarterback Isandro
Marquez to rack up a District 2A-6
win over the Eagles at slippery
Cane Field on Friday night.
The Tigers improved to 5-2
overall and 2-0 in district play.
Hughes rolled for 154 yards
rushing on 16 carries and touch-
down runs of 1 and 13 yards.
Marquez turned in his best
passing performance of the sea-
son with 9 completions on 13
throws for 173 yards and 2 touch-
downs.
Wideout Damion Smith scored
on a 48-yard catch and run and
tight end Julio Ramos posted the
other score on a 25-yard recep-
tion.
The Tigers took the opening
kickoff and marched 65 yards in 7
plays with 30 and 24 yard passes
from Marquez towideout Damian
Smith highlighting the effort.
Clewiston went to a Wildcat
formation with Jamarcus Smith
deep. Smith rushed up the mid-
dle for 7 yards but lost the ball at
the Eagles' two-yard line.
On their first snap, the Eagles
were slapped with a safety as
linebacker Dillon Irey smashed
into the backfield and tackled the
runner in the end zone.
After an exchange of punts,
Clewiston stayed on the ground
with Hughes reeling off dashes of

13, 36 and then the final 13 yards
to score.
The point after snap was
mishandled forcing Marquez to
attempt a run conversion that
failed. The first period ended
with a steady drizzle and the Ti-
gers sporting an 8-0 lead.
Clewiston scored again early
in the second period on a one
yard dive by Hughes, capping an
8 play, 50 yard drive.
Hughes had runs of 24 and
11 yards in the drive and fullback
Joey Cordova added an impres-
sive 17-yard smash.
The Eagles came back with a
passing attack drive and scored
with 3:22 left in the half on a 19
yard pass from quarterback Troy
Leib to flanker Chris Zebart.
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino smashed through and
blocked his fourth placekick of
the season.
Clewiston came roaring right
back and scored in less than 60
seconds of clock time, covering
55 yards in 2 snaps.
Hughes got 7 yards on an
off-tackle run and then Marquez
hooked up with Damion Smith
on a textbook 48 yard scoring
pass. The Tigers went to halftime
with a 21-6 advantage.
Clewiston slapped two more
touchdowns on the scoreboard
in the third period.
Tiger defender Ricky Marti-
nez picked off a tipped pass and


returned it 7 yards to the Eagles'
38.
Four rushes later found full-
back Leonard Newton hitting pay
dirt from 2 yards out.
The Tiger defense then held
the Eagles forcing a short punt
and got the ball back for the of-
fense at the Eagles' 45.
After 3 rushing plays, Marquez
found tight end Julio Ramos open
in the end zone for a 25-yard scor-
ing play.
From that point in the game,
Hughes, Marquez and other Tiger
starters sat out most of the sec-
ond half as Coach Joe Roth gave
his back-ups game experience.
Pope John Paul II got their fi-
nal score of the night when cor-
nerback Joey Grosso picked off
an errant pass from Jonathan
Brown and returned it 49 yards
for a touchdown.
Defensively, Clewiston held
the Eagles to a minus 27 yards
rushing and no first downs.
The passing defense was not
as stingy but managed to keep
the Eagles' game under control.
The Tigers will host district ri-
val Inlet Grove this Friday at Cane
Field.
The foes are sporting an over-
all 6-1 record and have matched
the Tigers' district record of 2-0.
This game will likely deter-
mine which team will be the dis-
trict champion.
Tiger tailback Darris Hughes
has now rushed for 1,414 yards
on 128 tries, an 11-yard average
per carry.
He enters this week's contest
only 113 yards short of Thomas
Washington's 1990 all-time sea-
son Tiger rushing record.
Hughes is also ranked fourth
in rushing for the entire state
and one rusher ahead of him has
played one additional game.

Sent on foreign countries for our food supply! As a small business owner,
I know what it's like to meet payroll we need to keep government out
of our pockets with new taxes. I've been your state representative for
the past four years, and I hope to continue serving you.

Five different types of people, who are you?


By Jackie Miller
Someone has said there are
five kinds of people in the world.
I suppose the same is true of the
church.
1. Those who don't know
what's happening. Even in this
day of mass communications,
you'd be surprised at how many
people do not know what is going
on, and have never been aware
of what the nation or church is
all about. These people refuse to
educate themselves in these mat-
ters of great importance. They are
lazy and depend on others to do
all the hard work.


2. Those who don't care what's
happening. These are the people
who attend the game, but don't
care who wins. They don't vote
because the don't think it mat-
ters who is elected. This is the age
of indiffence..Many are uncon-
cerned about all the problems of
society, as long as it doesn't affect
them personally. But when it does
- Watch Out!
3.Those who try to keep things
from happening. Like the story of
the two guys on the tamdem bi-
cycle. Going up the hill the guy
in front was pumping for all he
was worth. Sweating profusely at


the top he told his friend, "Man,
I didn't think we were going to
make it." "Neither did I", the
other guy said, "So I kept my feet
on the brakes all the way up!" We
have people like this in the nation
and church.
4. Those who watch things
happen. This is where the majori-
ty are. Just spectators! After things
get going they want to jump on
the band-wagon. We can look
at other nations and churches
where dynamic growth is taking
place and wish it were ours, but
there have to be people with per-
sonal dedication and willingness-


es to work to make it happen!
Like the preacher said, "I've got a
willing church...a few are willing
to work...and the rest are willing
to let them!"
5. Those who make things hap-
pen. By far the smallest crowd,
but what a difference they make
in our world! Abraham, Moses,
Daniel, Paul, Peter, and John.
The world and the church is a
better place because they, have
been there! YOU can be that kind
of person! Start right now! Start
small, but plan BIG! You and God
will make a wonderful team!


Floridians warned about child identity theft


TALLAHASSE-In recognition
of National Protect Your Identity
Week, Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum issued a consumer advi-
sory warning Floridians about the
crime of child identity theft. The
Attorney General cautioned par-
ents to be vigilant in protecting
their children's personal informa-
tion and to report any potential ID
theft to law enforcement.
Although statistics are not kept
on identity theft victims under 18,
estimates indicate the crime im-
pacts more than 500,000 children
nationally each year.
"Often, a child and his or her
parents won't realize the theft
has occurred until the child is
an adult," said Attorney General
McCollum. "I believe this crime
happens far more frequently than
is reported, and parents need to
take steps to ensure their child is
protected."
A recent study conducted by


the nonprofit Identity Theft Re-
source Center found children
are most often targeted between
the ages of zero to five years old.
Unfortunately, the ID thieves may
often be the parents themselves,
or relatives who have access to a
child's social security number. A
common practice associated with
this crime is for adults to their
child's social security number to
secure utilities for a home. This
generates 'credit card offers in
the child's name, and parents or
guardians may sometimes then
open lines.of credit.
Technology also plays a role in
the ID theft of children. Children,
who use the internet sometimes
.post personal information online,
which can be accessed through
a wireless network. Children can
also become victims of "phish-
ing" scams, defined as an attempt
by an unscrupulous person to ob-
tain sensitive information such as


usernames, passwords or credit
card information via email by
pretending to be a trustworthy
entity, like a bank or government
agency.
Tips to protect children from
identity theft include:
Try to limit the use of your
child's Social Security number
(SSN) and do not carry around
your child's Social Security card
in your purse or wallet.
Make sure the child's school
ID card does not require a date of
birth or social security number.
Watch for mail that may
come in your child's name. If
he or she receives credit card of-
fers, you should investigate the
source.
Warn your child about giv-
ing out their personal informa-
tion while online and monitor the
websites your child visits.
Penalties for parents or guard-
ians convicted of child ID theft are


stronger than for those convicted
of the ID theft of an adult. The
parent or guardian could face a
prison term of up to 15 years.
Parents .who believe their
child's identity has been stolen
should immediately file a report
with local police or the law en-
forcement agency where the
crime took place, if known. They
should also contact all threecredit
bureaus separately and report
the id theft of a minor. Consum-
ers who believe they may be vic-
tims of identity theft or fraud may
contact the Attorney General's
fraud hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM
(1-866-966-7226) or file a com-
plaint online at http://myflorida-
legal.com. Additional information
about identity theft, tips to protect
individuals, and recovery informa-
tion is available online at: http://

SafeLink Wireless to assist low income callers


,Participants receive over an
hour of free talk time monthly
and free wireless cell phone
TracFone Wireless, Inc., Amer-
ica's leading prepaid cell phone
provider has launched SafeLink
Wireless in Florida. SafeLink
Wireless will serve as the com-
pany's distribution of Lifeline a
U.S. government supported pro-
gram for income eligible house-
holds that ensures telephone ser-
vice is available and affordable for
eligible low income households.
The SafeLink Wireless service
will provide eligible low-income
households a free cell phone, mo-
bile access to emergency services
and free 68 minutes of air time,
monthly, for one year. The cell
phone offers in-demand features:
voicemail, text, call waiting, inter-
national calling to over 60 desti-
nations and caller ID.
"Over one million households
in Florida qualify for the Lifeline
services offering these partici-
pants the opportunity to have the
same access and privileges many
individuals take for granted when
it comes to using cell phones,"
said Javier Rosado, Senior Vice
President of Lifeline Services for
TracFone. "The SafeLink Wireless
service is .truly unique because
we are providing a service that no
other company has made avail-
able before a free cell phone.
and free monthly minutes to
qualifying low income families,"
added Rosado. SafeLink Wireless
offers low income families acces-
sibility, freedom and the security
in knowing that should an emer-
gency occur wherever they are,
they will stay safe and stay con-,
nected.
Economic opportunities for
low-income households
A recent study ("Cell Phones
Provide Significant Economic


Gains for Low-Income American
Households," April 2008) ana-
lyzed the impact of mobile phones
on low-income households. "In
this day and age, the cell phone
should be deemed an imperative
necessity for the millions of low-
income families who are far less
likely to own them," said Nicho-
las P. Sullivan, the study's author
and visiting scholar at Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology. "Our
study showed cell phones can
significantly boost the earning
potential of these communities,
and this connectivity vastly en-
courages their opporttiriitie~ hd
remains central to their everyday
survival," Mr. Sullivan stressed.
The study also revealed the cell
phone is a critical component for
personal safety, access to emer-
gency services, and can potential-
ly increase a low-income family's
economic productivity and earn-
ing power. Other relevant survey
findings included:
Cell phones provide a "secu-
rity blanket" and are "extremely
important" for "emergency use."
A cell phone is preferred
to a landline phone for .mobil-
ity and security purposes, and is
preferred to a landline phone for
emergency use by 3-1 ratio.
48% have used their phone'
to call or text during an emergen-
cy situation.
20% have received an emer-
gency call or text on their cell
phone.
32% have purchased a cell
phone for a relative to use in
emergency situations.
40% in blue-collar jobs say
their cell phone has provided the
,opportunity to gain employment
or make money.
Daily, millions of Americans
depend on mobile telecommuni-
cations for a wide range of basic


activities including: calling emer-
gency services, searching for
employment, staying connected
with loved ones, and much more.
Yet, for people who cannot afford
cell phones, being part of today's
connected world and performing
these crucial day-to-day needs is
near impossible. Typically, fami-
lies living below the poverty line
struggle to pay their monthly bills,
experience credit issues, and can-
not afford traditional home phone
and wireless services. Using pub-
lic pay phones regularly pose
problerms,,,and cell phone con-
tracts often are difficult to.main-
tain due to costly usage charges
over long-term agreements. As a
result, regular communications is
a major dilemma for these fami-
lies.

Program Eligibility
Lifeline program eligibility var-
ies by state but generally families
may qualify for SafeLink Wireless
service if.their household income
is not above 135 percent of the
federal poverty income guide-
lines, or if they receive any of the

Creepy Crawly things that invade your computer


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
Unfriendly things like viruses,
worms, spyware and the oc-
casional trojan can invade your
computer in a variety of ways and
cause problems for you. They
can hitch a ride on an email at-
tachment. You can visit a site or
download a file that has an at-
tached virus. A computer virus is
a malicious, intentionally created
mini program by a hacker that
is meant to mess up your com-
puter.
Quote Out...
"Viruses are malicious, inten-
tionally created mini-programs
from hackers wanting to mess up
others' computers."

com
End quote out
Then how do they show them-
selves? Your computer might slow
way down. You might get a stub-
born pop-up that won't go away.
Your friends may tell you that you
sent them a.strange email when
you know you didn't. Some mis-
chief viruses will take your entire
email contact list and send out an
email on your behalf. You may be
working in an application and it
crashes repeatedly for no appar-
ent reason. You may find new
addresses in your email contacts
that you know you didn't add.
A few years ago a local com-


puter repairman advised me to
use two different, programs to
help keep the viruses away or at
least tinder control. Since then
when I read up on things that can
infect a computer and how to pro-
tect it, these two programs are al-
ways spoken of with great regard.
Why do you need two programs
for virus protection? Because they
protect against different kinds of
viruses. You get better coverage
with two programs. Each of the
following virus scan programs
can be downloaded from the In-
ternet.
AVG Anti-Virus, for home use
can be downloaded free, but
in my opinion, the full-featured
version is a good buy and worth-
while. It scans in real time and
will update as needed provided
you set us the application that
way. I suggest you do.
Avast Anti-Virus Home Edition
is free for non-commercial, home
use. Look for the FREE version 4.
They also offer free virus removal
tools if you know the name of the
virus you are fighting.
Norton Anti-Virus and anti
spyware, I have heard complaints
from some that if you ever try to
deinstall Norton you will not be
successful. It is the program of
choice for many businesses and
individuals. However, I do not use
it.


Download and install
software
You will only need to actually
download and install this software
once and then your anti-virus soft-
ware will run in the background
until you need to update. I'm go-
ing to go into detail today about
how to actually get software off
the Internet for those who may
not have done this before.
Go to one of the web sites
noted above. There is usually a
button or a link that clearly says
"Download." When you click it a
box comes up asking if you want
to run or save the software. Since
you are probably downloading
an installation file, my suggestion
is that you click "save." Pause a
moment here. You must decide
where the file will save. Don't
leave this to chance or you may
not be able to find it.
Create a new file folder in your
My Documents called Down-

your new downloads folder. This
is so you can find it when it is time
to install the program. Actually in-
stalling the anti-virus software is
the second step in this process.
Close all other programs on
your computer. Open your down-
loads folder and find the file you
just downloaded. It may be called
Setup.exe. Your download save
box should have told you the


name of the file.
Double-click the installation
file. It is usually quite easy to man-
age from here. The download
manager will ask you some ques-
tions and you may need to click
OK or next a few times. It is 'im-
portant to read each of the panels
during download. You may also
be asked to restart your comput-
er. Do this. You may find the new

installation you may have been
asked where you want to be able
to access the file. Double-click
the icon and set up the software
guards to your liking. At some
point during the download or
registration. of paid software you
may be asked for your email ad-
dress. This is so the company can
send you a serial number to use
during installation. Keep this in-
formation in a safe place because
if you ever need to rebuild your

The villages of the Calusa Indians


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The misty clouds of water
droplets hung gently suspended
above the bay, enveloping the
surrounding estuaries and man-
grove forest in a gray blanket of
fog. Snowy white egrets, engulfed
in the clouds of swirling mist, cre-
ated shadowy apparitions as they
winged their way silently through
the fog shrouded forest.
The awakening sun began
to climb sluggishly in the east-
ern sky, spinning golden threads
of shimmering heat that slowly
burned away the cloudy canopies
of fragile mist. The dissipating
fog began to unveil a picturesque
landscape of sandy white beach-.
es, surrounded by pristine estuar-
ies and mangrove forest.
Large shell mounds rose from
the beach like prehistoric fig-
ures, as .the fog slowly vaporized
in the warm morning air. Wide
stairways lead up to the tops
of the towering mounds where
wooden structures, made from
cypress trees and palmetto palm
fronds, stood. The shelters rested
on the flat, square tops of the airy
mounds, giving the occupants a
complete view of the island and
temporary relief from the insects.
This fictional story described
a typical Calusa village on the
southwest coast of Florida, when
the Spaniards first arrived in the
1500s. Where were these villages
and what are mounds? It's time
to take "A Walk in The Past" and
review Calusa village names, lo-
cations, and mounds, based on
Fontenado memoirs and the in-
terpretation of Archeologists.
Escalenta Fontenado lived
with the Calusa for 17 years as
a slave and described the region
inhabited by the Calusa Indi-
ans. Their nation started on the
southwest coast of Florida, frort
Charlotte Harbor to the Ten Thou-
sand Islands as far south as Cape
Sable. The Myakka, Peace, Calos-
sahatchie, Whidden, Turner, and
Shark Rivers were the major in-
land waterways and extensions
of their coastal realm.
He quoted some of the towns
along the west coast, starting in
the Charlotte Harbor area: "First, a
place called Tampa, a large town,
and another town, which is called
Tomo; another, Tuchi and an-
other Soco; another by the name
No, which signifies town beloved;
another, Sinapa ; and another, Si-
naesta ; and another, Metamapo;
-- and another, Sacaspada; and an-
other, Calaobe; and another, Es-
tame ; another, Yagua ; another,
Guevu; another, Muspa ; another,
Casitoa ; another, Tatesta ; anoth-
er, Cayovea ; and another, Jutun;
another, Tequemapo; and anoth-
er, with the name of Comachica
; also, Quisiyove, and two other


towns of that territory, the names
of which I do not recollect, for it
has been six years since I came
from there."
Some of the towns Fontenado
named have been identified by
archeologists, while others have
been lost in time. One interest-
ing town Archeologists identified
was Tampa, a village located in
Charlotte Harbor that was once
documented in early Spanish re-
cords. Later Spanish mapmakers
made the mistake of misinterpret-
ing the document and mapping
this town further north on the
next large bay. You guessed it....
Tampa Bay. So now you know
how Tampa Bay and the city of
Tampa got their names...by a slip
of the pen. Who says the famous
quote, "The pen is mightier than
the sword" has no merit?
The Calusa towns were built
on mounds of shell, sand and
dirt. The mounds located in Lee
and Collier Counties are gener-
ally made of shell. Shell mounds
were unique because they acted
as large drainage systems that
quickly filtered the water through
the massive mounds. The drain-
age factor was very critical when
Tropical storms caused tidal


flooding along the coast.
The mounds found at Ortona
Locks and other inland locations
along the Caloosahatchee River
are generally constructed of sand.
Distance and labor no doubt lim-
ited the Calusa mound builders
to local material; however, oyster
shell mounds have been found
in Hendry County. Archeologists
believe the sand found at the
Chosen mounds located close to
Belle Glade was hauled from Ft.
Myers..
The shelters that perched on
top of the flat mounds were usu-
ally constructed of pine or cypress
poles. The thick ends of the poles
were placed in holes spaced one
to two yards apart, forming a
round or oval shape structure. The
slimmer ends of the poles were
tied together, creating a round
roof. The roofs were thatched
with palm fronds or cypress bark.
Walls were made of palm fronds
or sometimes woven branches
that were stuffed with Spanish
moss or clay. Woven mats were
used for flooring and as doors for
the single entrances into the shel-
ters.
Some of the structures were
very large. Pedro Mendendez de

Aviles, the Spaniard that rescued
Fontenado, said he was enter-
tained by a Calusa king and de-
scribes a shelter; it housed 2,000
people and had benches lined
along the walls. This shelter was
probably a large temple. Temples
were constructed at many towns,
so the mounds in Clewiston prob-
ably had a Temple.
What kind of services do you
think they held in their temples?
There will be "Tales to Tell" in
next weeks edition of "A Walk in
The Past" when Fontanedo de-
scribes the religious beliefs and
social structure of the Calusa In-
dians.

LEADING WITH COMMON SENSE AND A TRUE CARE FOR OUR COMMUNITY,


Advantages of being your Sheriff

Veteran Law Enforcement Officer with diverse
Experience and progressive, Up-To-Date Law
Enforcement Knowledge

Successful Business Experience
Multi-level Law Enforcement Collaboration

"Extensive Working Knowledge of Hendry
County"
Clear Mission Statement (What Our Objectives
Are & How We Will Achieve Them?)

Working for the Hendry County Sheriffs
Office and the Clewiston Police Department
for the past decade, I have the advantage of
knowing what works and what does not In
Hendry County. I know the Agency and its
employees. I know the citizens of Hendry
County and the criminal element. We will be
able to hit the ground running with no delay in
operational functionality.


Accomplishments

Responsible for the taking down the Largest
Marijuana grow operation in the history of
Florida (30,360 plants) (Montura 200412005)

Seized 250 Kilos of cocaine headed from
Texas to southwest Florida. (2006)

Seized over five pounds of Methamphetamine
that was to be delivered in our area (2006)

Seized over 2,800 pounds of marijuana from a
Rastafarian Cartel on an undercover operation
in Jamaica. (2006)

Federally indicted and prosecuted a Clewiston
crack cocaine dealer in Clewiston seizing over
130 grams of crack cocaine.

Instrumental in virtually sealing off and shut-
ting all narcotics operations within the City of
Clewiston. (Was recognized by the Clewiston
Police Chief during a Clewiston Commission
meeting 2005)

City of Clewiston Employee of the year (2005)


* I will implement a minimum of six (6) additional Deputies to provide 24 hour service to
the citizens of the outlined communities. (Montura, Pioneer, Ladeca and Felda.) *This will
be done by reallocating over $300,000.00 a year salaries of duplicated administrative posi-
tions and positions with no job description. (trading salary for salary)

I will have a standard of expectation from me to the deputies to ensure that the citizens
are being treated with respect and integrity. o I will replace the "US and THEM" mentality
concerning the interaction of the agency employees and the citizens of this county.

I will train each Dispatcher and certify for the first time under the Association of Public
Safety Communicators (APCO) Telecommunicators School AND as a certified Emergency
Medical Dispatcher or EMD. "Critical care will begin the moment you call 911 to our office"

* I will bring the long awaited cooperation between the Hendry County Sheriffs Office and
the Clewiston Police Department to better serve all citizens of Hendry County This will
include Re-connecting the information sharing computer system so needed in this time of
school violence and terrorism.

I will ensure that the City of LaBelle's contracted deputies stay within the city limits as
stated by contract.

I will expand and enhance the agricultural unit within the Sheriffs department to properly
address the critical needs of the farm and ranch communities.

* I will implement a standardized field training program for new Deputies and will offer con-
tinual training to keep them up-to-date

I have a history and belief of open communication between myself and the citizens I
have served, I will continue that trait as your Sheriff.

I will not pretend that Hendry County does not have a gang problem. I will work with
other agencies and focus on those involved in all gang related activities.

*Due to the status of uncertainty and lack of information provided by the current
Administration of the Sheriffs Office. I will immediately implement a minimum of 24 sepa-
rate audits that address EACH and every aspect of the Sheriffs Office to restore accounta-
bility and credibility to them

I will upgrade and implement a new communications system that is already in operation
throughout the State of Florida and shared by most agencies except for the Sheriffs Office.
Currently the Sheriffs Office cannot communicate with any other agency during joint opera-
tions such as disaster or mutual aid I will determine where a $200,000 award in the form
of a check given to Ronnie Lee by Congressman Mark Foley on November 30, 2005 went
that was for this purpose but never done' (SOURCE Caloosa Belle article and Picture
December 8, 2005)


I will make sure that you get better law enforcement and service for your money

These are simply managerial decisions that will be made without stressing the budget


Our Friends and Families of Hendry
County, Florida,

Recently we each ran an ad in the various
media endorsing Steve Whidden for
.Sheriff of Hendry County, Florida With
early voting now in full swing and the gen-
eral election just a few short days away,
we wanted to emphasize how important it
is to place each and every vote this year.
We want to remind each of you that it is
not about parties this election. It is about
changing the way our communities are
treated and serviced by the Hendry
County Sheriff. Lee has had two four
year terms to accomplish the self
imposed goals that he spoke of 12 years
ago and still has not done so! Please
join us both in our support to elect STEVE
WHIDDEN, as our new Sheriff of Hendry
County! We must change this trend and
ensure that our tax dollars are spent to
OUR advantage in keeping our communi-
ties SAFE!

Sincerely,

SwIdyw J`W1i.J'd1Mm

How to redeem Halloween


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church
In the early 1500's, many
churches sold indulgences, which
could be purchased to cancel out
sins. If you did something that was
wrong, you could give the church
some money, and the money was
supposed to buy your forgiveness
from God.
Martin Luther thought this was
wrong. He thought that forgive-
ness came through repentance,
not purchases.
On Oct. 31,1517, Martin Luther
wrote down 95 theses. 95 things
he believed about the church. 95
things which would help people
more fully realize who thdy were
and could be in our Lord. Luther
took his list and nailed it to the
door of the church for everyone to
see and read. This began a move-
ment to improve the workings of
the church, and the church was
reformed based on many of Lu-
ther's ideas.
God also calls us to be faith-
ful and to make a difference. We
don't have to do great things.
There are times in our lives when
we have opportunities to reach
out and touch people in a special


way. Halloween can be one such
opportunity.
SThere was a man in the neigh-
borhood where I grew up who
made snow cones every Hallow-
een for all of us trick-or-treaters. I
remember him. More than that, I
remember how special he made
each of us feel. It inspired within
me a desire to one day, if at all
possible, to do what he did to
make and hand out snow cones
on Halloween -- to make good
memories by touching the hearts
of children and youth in special
ways.
A number of years ago that
was made possible with the gift of
a snow cone machine, and I have
been making snow cones and
friends each Halloween since.
I make no secret that I'm claim-
ing the night for Christ, and share
blessings with all who come to
my door.
I invite you to join me this year
in redeeming Halloween. Let us
not turn away from Halloween,
but become a beacon for our
Lord in the midst of it. Someone
shared that being a Christian is
like being a pumpkin. "God picks
you from the patch, brings you
in, and washes all the dirt off of
you. Then He cuts off the top and


scoops out all the yucky stuff. He'
removes the seeds of doubt, hate,
greed, etc., and then He carves
you a new smiling face and puts
His light inside of you to shine for
the entire world to see."
As kids come to your door, let
them see His light in you. Don't
give in to the world, but be in
the world with your light shining.
Don't hide it under a bushel, but
hold it up to the world as a living
witness for our living God. It is the
combined wattage of many lights,
each shining in its own place but
for a common purpose, that illu-
minates a city in the midst of the
darkness of night.
Some churches and commu-
nities have fall festivals and Hal-
loween alternatives where chil-
dren and youth can go celebrate
in a fun and safe environment.
These are a great way to join oth-
ersin lighting the night. This year
I will be at my church on Hallow-
een and at Woodworks Park in
Clewiston for the Fall Festival on
Nov. 1. Come visit me! You will
find pumpkins carved in special
ways, bowls of the best candy,
-- and yes, a snow cone machine
running and the light of Christ
shining.


Halloween and spiritual traditions


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. d.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There's a tradition among our
spiritual ancestors which has
everyone gathered around the
family table on the eve of a spe-
cial holiday. The youngest person
in the group asks the oldest one
"Why is this night different than
any other night?" And the eldest
replies by telling everyone of the
traditions and reasons for the
holiday.
The tradition is kept alive, the
children listen to the heroic ac-
counts that give them a heritage
and a sense of identity that helps
them understand who they really
are. We're on the eve of another
tradition; when all of the trick-
or-treaters will want to celebrate
with costumes and collecting
goodies, and having a great time
of it all. But why? I wonder if any
of them know, why Halloween is
celebrated and, for that rnaller.
many of the *other holidays- t-ial
have come to be observed onr our
calendars.
When I lived in Quebec, all of
the license plates were imprinted
with "Je me Souviens." It literally
meant "I remember myself" but
more accurately was translated
"I know who I am." It meant-that
the people were aware of their
traditions and heritage, their val-
ues and their identity as a people.
That is something missing in-
many places these days. That may
be a key part missing in many lives
these days; being able to answer
"Who are you?" Or maybe more
importantly 'What does being


here mean to you?" God identifies
Himself to Moses as "I am who I
am (Exodus 3:14)" and each time
he gives a people or a person a
mission, He gives them a name,
an identity.
With that special purpose
comes a sense of identity. This
keeps His people together, gives
them strength, gives them an
understanding of their destiny
and keeps them together, carries
them through when times are.
hard, About Halloween? It was
originally a "Holy day" or "holi-
day" that came on "All Hallow's
Evening" or "Hallowed Even" or
just "Halloween."
It was when the early Chris-
tians remembered all of those
who were saints and who left
them with a remarkable heri-
tage, and who were the heroes
of the faith in their day and age.
It is a time to remember all of the
"saints" in our lives too; the ones
in the Bible, the ones who were
a part of our religious foundation,
-and- those personal ones who
hale touched our own individual
lives.
I can think of some "saints"
who were patient with me and
guided me along the way when
it was not the easiest thing to do,
those who inspired me to follow
my dreams and make them re-
alities, those who encouraged me
when I had doubts that I might
not make it, those who shared
from their own treasure-houses
of their resources and wisdom to
give me a better life.
These are my saints, along
with all of the others around us
They should be remembered.

When the "Holiday" comes
and we recall "Halloween" take
a moment to share with our chil-
dren, and each other, the real
meaning of a special time to be
thankful for all of those who have
come from God to us and are His
real heroes in our lives. The day
can become a very special holi-
day; honoring those who have
made us what we are.
Halloween can be a time of
sharing and teaching, giving our
children something to hand on
to their children when the time
comes; more than just parties and
costumes and collecting treats.
Thanking God for all whq have
been sent into our lives, remem-

creases the required amount of
fruits and vegetables deemed
necessary for school children,
and it increased the sugar loan
rate from 18 cents to 18.75 cents.
Tim Mahoney specifically men-
tioned the ethanol loan guarantee
program for expanding cellulosic
biofuel incentives. He explained
that loans for building biofuel
refineries of citrus peel scrap are
guaranteed, and that it has'the
advantage of having ready-made
customers in the oil companies.
Mr. Mahoney commented that it
will create new jobs and a market
for agricultural waste in Florida.
Poverty in the communities
around Lake Okeechobee was
addressed. He was asked about
the frustration of people in these
blighted areas.
"The area school drop out
rate is 40 percent, yet 80 percent
of those students had passing
grades," explained Tim Mahoney.
In his opinion this'points to
the sheer hopelessness felt by so
many young people in the Glades
area. There is no incentive to con-
tinue education if there are no
jobs to.prepare for. He intends for
the biofuel industry to create jobs
and fund infrastructure, energy,
education and job training for
people -in Okeechobee, LaBelle,
Moore Haven, Clewiston, Belle
Glade and other communities.
In September, representative
Mahoney traveled around Glades
County in order to assess damage
done by Tropical Storm Fay. He
was questioned about FEMA's re-
evaluation to put Glades County
on the list of counties in need. Tim
Mahoney commented that An-
gela Snow, Glades County emer-
gency management director, and
county commissioners would not
give up. They went back into the
neighborhoods and knocked on
_ dpors until they established the
necessary information required
by FEMA's assessment formula.
He mentioned that Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriff Ronnie Lee also brought
the plight of Glades County to his
attention. One of Lee's depart-
ment members lives in Moore
Haven and her home suffered
a lot of damage. The congress-
man feels the dedication of local
officials is what it took to put the
county on FEMA's list.

face?...My Family and helping
people.
What would you like to say to
the residents of Glades County?...
It has been an honor to repre-
sent you in the legislature for the
past 4 years. It is a responsibility
that I don't take lightly. You have
always opened your door to me
and been willing to provide input
when I have had to make tough
decisions. For that I am grateful.
With your help I will go back to
Tallahassee for 2 more years and
continue to represent you.
What would you like to say to
young people in Glades County?...
Study hard and stay focused. Be
involved in your community and
make a difference. Theie is a great
richness in Glades County among
family and friends. No matter
where you travel, don't ever for-
get where home is. Glades county
has taught you some important
values that will stay with you for
a lifetime.
Ms. Grimsley has promoted in-
centives to research and produce
alternative fuels from farmers
products which will help with the
economy and fuel prices. When
Glades County officials and resi-
dents began efforts to clean up
the Pearce Canal and other wa-
terways, she supported them and
worked with state agencies.
When it was revealed that
Governor Crist had orchestrated a
deal for U.S. Sugar Corporation to
be sold to SFWMD, she was dis-
appointed that local officials had
been left in the dark. According
to Representative Grimsley, the
governor should have been more
sensitive to the concerns of resi-
dents. However, Denise Grimsley
supports the effort to restore the
Everglades if economic re-devel-
opment is taken into consider-
ation.

vet clammed tlp and never talked
about war time, or it changed
them and they became a different
person. Military family members
can have those pent up emotions,
too.
Deborah Grassman mentions
it is equally important to not as-
sume that non-combat veterans
did not endure any trauma. Re-
gardless of assignment, some did
serve in dangerous surroundings.

trict, he commented that it may
not be a. good idea to pull the
rug from beneath our feet after
the farm bill encourages the pro-
duction of biofuels. He wants to
know more about the true cost of
the land, the cost of engineering
the flow way, and the protection
of the area's economy.
"I haven't seen the math that
shows it is a good deal for the
state," he said.
Before Tim Mahoney left to
visit other communities he spoke
about water issues. He believes
the state and its agencies must
clean up the Everglades and Lake
Okeechobee, but they must re-
consider using the big lake as the
only reservoir. It is not logical to
relinquish fresh water that could
be saved for community use and
irrigation during times of drought,
or which could become part of
the water flow to the Everglades.
Other reservoirs are needed in or-
der to revive Lake Okeechobee as
a recreation destination for tour-


may have served in the stressful
"green zone", but an accurate
missile could have tragically killed
them, also.
Finally, there are younger vet-
erans who served in Beirut, Gre-
nada, Panama, Bosnia, Persian
Gulf, Iraq and Afghanistan. It may
benefit them to volunteer to be
with terminally ill and aged veter-
ans who need to loosen up and
share.
'A veteran does not have to live


ists and fishermen.
It has been reassuring to resi-
dents that Tim Mahoney took an
interest in the area's agri-busi-
ness, infrastructure, environment
and lack of jobs. However, with
increasing election updates from
mainstream media on his lack of
private discretion and judgement,
it is difficult to see how he can
hold onto his office as a United
States representative.
For too long the communities
around the big lake have felt ne-
glected by United States senators
and representatives. The feeling
of hopelessness has been .here
for decades. It is not for lack of
trying to improve the situation.
In Glades County, young people
say they cannot earn a living and
have to move their blossoming
families away from home. In the
tri-cities of western Palm Beach
County, violence has seen a dras-
tic rise as and some point to the
economic conditions as a factor
for the number of violent crimes
being committed.
