Mistrial declared in murder case


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY --.Aug.
Swas the first day of a murder
trial whereby a jury was chosen,
followed the next day by initial
testimony.
The trial was held'in the court
room on the second floor of the
Glades County courthouse.
Jessy Castelucci, 26, was the
defendant charged with second
degree murder with a firearm.
He was alleged to have killed
a Lee County man, Davronjon
Bakeev, whose buried remains-


were located on Aug. 20, 2007 at
a rural residence in Muse.
The deceased had been re-
ported missing on Nov. 23, 2002.
Davronjon Bakeev, 29, was from
Uzbekistan and married to a
United States citizen.
It is unclear if Davronjon Ba-
keev was in the country on a
student visa, worker visa or as an
immigrant.
According to officials, it was
believed that Mr, Bakeev went
to see his estranged wife, their
children and his sister-in-law in
Muse. He was allegedly attacked,
and shot by Jessy Castelucci.


Florida DepartmentofLawEn-
forcement (FDLE) special agents
believe that the deceased's wife,
Hadassah Bakeev, may have ar-
ranged for Mr. Castelucci to kill
Mr. Bakeev in exchange for 'a
car.
On Aug. 7, prosecuting attor-
neys, Dennis Wallace and Dan
Cavanaugh, brought forth sev-
eral witnesses, expert witnesses
and evidence materials. FDLE
crime lab analyst, Karen Cooper,
supervised the excavation of the
remains from the Muse property..
During the trial she was given ev-
idence to examine and identify.

Speed limit reduced to 45


Traffic team has
vice-chair vacancy)

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- The
community traffic safety
team(CTST) met Aug. 7 to dis-
cuss the reduced speed limit
near the Glades County Sher-
iff's Office. The area is along
S.R. 78 which runs past two
correctional facilities and inter-
sects U.S. 27.
The speed limit in this sec-
tion had previously been post-
ed at 60 m.p.h. Moore Haven


Correctional Facility has been at
this location since 1995, and it
has recently expanded. Its em-
ployees and visitors must slow
down for the entrance. Traffic
increased around July 2007 al-
ter the completion of the new
Glades County Sheriff's Office,
county jail, corrections opera-
tion and Immigration Customs
Enforcement facility.
According to Sergeant Kim-
berly Hill, GCSO, the safety
of motorists has been a con-
cern to local law enforcement
and CTST, since drivers pass
through at a high rate of speed.
Last year a heavy truck over-
turned and its driver was killed.
A reduced speed of 45


m.p.h. is now in place. The
team talked about alerting local
drivers to the lowered speed,
since they were accustomed to
the higher speed. Gloria Seay,
DOT LaBelle office, agreed that
it would be beneficial for DOT
to put message boards out for
the public to see as a reminder.
There are no shoulders on this
section of the state road; thus,
the message boards will be put
on U.S. 27 so drivers turning
onto S.R. 78 can see it.
Sergeant Hill also mentioned
the,need for emergency vehicle
signs along the same section
of S.R. 78. This is due to an in-
See Limit Page 20


She commented on a plastic bag
she had previously examined at
the gravesite.
"It appears to be a bag col-
lected from around the skull of
the victim," Ms. Cooper laid.
One of the experts was Dr.
Heather Walsh-Haney, Florida
Gulf. Coast University forensic
anthropologist. Her duties are
to assist medical examiners and
determine the biological profile
of the remains, such as ancestry,
height, and sex. Ms. Walsh-Haney
found a trauma to the third ver-
tebrae of the neck caused by a
projectile.


A portion of flooring, central
air duct-work and insulation
from the residence were present-
ed as the source of where a bil-
let came to rest after being fired.
The bullet, duct tape, a plastic
bag and a shell casing were also
submitted as evidence. Howev-
er, forensic investigation experts
were unable to match the bullet
to the shell.casing; and were un-
able to match the bullet or shell
casing to firearms found at the
residence. Latent, fingerprints
~vere not found, either.'Accord-

Missing boater



found on lake


By Eric Kopp
Okeechobee News
The search for a missing
boater on Lake Okeechobee
ended late Sunday afternoon,
according to the Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
An FWC spokeswoman said
the body of Paul A. (Bubba)
Helton, 57, was found at 5:05
p.m. on Aug. 10. He was found
by searchers in an FWC heli-
copter, she said.
Mr. Helton fell into the lake's
black water in about 7 feet of'
water around 3:30 p.m. Satur-
day, Aug. 9. The accident scene
was located about 9 miles
southwest of the Indian Prai-
rie Canal boat ramp in Glades
County, said-FWC's Gabriella
Ferraro.
Mr. Helton, along with his
wife Margaret Garrard-Helton,
own Garrard's Bait and Tackle
on U.S. 441 S.E. Mr. Helton was
also a guide and tournament
fisherman.
Carrying out the search
were divers from the Okeecho-
bee County Sheriff's Office, as
well as personnel from FWC
and the Glades County Sheriff's
Office. FWC led the search-
and-recovery operation and
provided air support
The search was called off at
dark on Saturday, then resumed
Sunday morning.
According to an unnamed
source close to the accident, a
group of seven boats were on
their way back from Clewiston
Saturday afternoon where they
had gone for lunch. The group'
had put in at Scott Driver Park.


There were three people in the
boat with Mr. Helton.
While on their way back
from Clewiston, Mr. Helton fell
into the water after being hit
by a wave. He then jumped to
keep from hitting the boat as he
entered the water, The source
added that those with Mr. Hel-
ton said he did not hit his head
on the boat as he fell.
Mr. Helton resurfaced brief-
ly then disappeared' said the
source.
"When he came back up
there was no fear on his face,
no panic -- nothing," said the +
source of how the accident
was explained. "They thought
he went back down to look for
his glasses."
When they realized some-
thing was wrong, two men
jumped from the boat and tried
to find Mr. Helton but were un-
successful.
Due to the wind and wave
action, the boat was beginning
to drift away at this point. The
men swam to the boat, got in
it and threw out anchors and
markers. When this was done,
one of the men returned to the
water and continued his search
'for Mr. Helton.
The source said the 24-year-
old man had to give up his
search and return to the boat
due to exhaustion.
"He said he had to go back
to'the boat because he was out
of gas," said the source.
The six other boats were not
near the area when the accident
occurred, the source said.

Copy and move computer files -i.D:


By Diane Timmons
INI/Florida
Last week, we discussed back-
ing up data to a flash drive. This
week I would like to discuss the
actual process of moving those
files around. It seems everyone
does it in a different way. This is
because the software that runs
our computers, the OS or operat-
ing system, has been engineered
to allow us many different ways of
doing most things. Here are two
of several ways the OS allows us
to move and copy files.
First you need to be able to see
your files.
The icon "My Computer" is on
your desktop. Double-click this
icon with your left mouse but-
ton to open it on your screen. On
the left, click My Documents. Se-
lect any file name and using the
Edit Menu (along the top of your
folder right under the blue line),.
select the action you want. Drag
down to select "Move to folder"
or "Copy to folder" to put that file
in another location.. Choose the
one that most fits your needs. If I
wanted to put a copy of a file on
my desktop'for temporary safe-
keeping, I would choose "Copy."
Then I'd move my cursor to any
blank spot on the desktop and
right click. Choose "Paste" and
a complete copy of the file ap-
pears.
Drag and Drop
The second method for mov-
ing files around is by far my favor-
ite, because it is so visual. This' is
using a file folder called Windows
Explorer. You don't have to pic-
ture the computer's file structure
in your mind. It is all right there in
front of you. It's just a little harder
to find the first time you use it. By
clicking START in the lower left
corner, you access Programs then
Accessories and then Windows
Explorer. You maywant to create a
shortcut by right clicking its name
and choosing Create Shortcut and
drag it out to your desktop. Open
-- -Windows Explorer.

the computer, including that flash
drive we spoke of last week. On
the right panel you will see folders
and individual files. This is where
drag and drop is used. As the
method name implies, you would
highlight a file in the right screen
and drag it to a folder or your flash
drive in the left screen. There are
two things to remember about
this.
If you relocate a file on your
hard drive using drag and drop,
that file actually leaves the old
folder and now resides in the
new folder. You haven't created
a backup but rather a relocation.
But, if you drag and drop a file to
another drive, that is plugged into
your computer such as a flash
drive, a duplicate file is created.
Thereby, backing up the file. You
now have two copies of that file
on two distinct devices. Happy
computing,

"Good ol'


school dayommunity diecto

school days! ""icw *


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
With school about to begin
again I am reminded of an old
song that went something like
this: "School Days, School Days,
Good 01' Golden Rule Days, Rea-
din' and 'Ritin' and 'Rithmetic',
taught by the rule of he Hick'ry
Stick."
Yes, those were the "good ol'
school days!
Laura Ingles Wilder represents
the pioneer spirit that settled
America.
She was born on Feb. 7, 1867
and as a little girl was part of the
pioneers who moved into an un-
tamed area and turned it into a
civilized land.
Later she wrote down her
experiences in a series of books
known as "Little House On The
Prairie" series.
A series of events led the fam-
ily into what is now Kansas, Min-
nesota and South Dakota.
The books are a favorite of
people of every age and were so
popular that a television series
"The Little House On The Prairie"
was on for many years and can
still seen in reruns.
Laura and her family faced
many hardships such as drought,
fire and illness.
'The family showed determina-
tion and faith in the face of these
trials.
The books are wholesome.
They exalt modesty, humility,
honesty, family values and spiri-
tual faith.
The people are hard working,
honest and care for one another


and needy neighbors as well.
The school and church are
center in the books.
A good education was valued.
Cheating was abhored.
Every Sunday the people gath-
ered in the school building which
doubled for a place of worship on
Sunday.
They sang, prayed, and lis-
tened intently to the message.
Laura had a loving Dad and
Mom. When she married she
formed a loving home like she
grew up in.
Children learn from parents!
Laura's writings remind us that
religion was a part of schooling in
early America, that God should be
at the center of one's life and that
we must always trust in the Lord'
even in crisis.
Her writings also remind us
that we were founded as a "Chris-
tian" nation.
If we lived by the values found
in the "Little House" series our na-
tion would be so much better off.
Here are a few worthwhile
quotes from Laura Ingles Wilder:
"I believe we would be hap-
pier to have a personal revolution
in our individual lives and go back
to simpler living and more direct
thinking."
"I am beginning to learn that it
is the sweet, simple things of life
which are the real ones after all."
"Once you begin being naugh-
ty, it is easier to go on and on, and
sooner or later something dread-
ful happens."
"If enough people think a
thing and work hard enough at it,
I guess it's pretty nearly bound to
happen, wind and weather per-
mitting."


Another dog day


lesson well-learned


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I was going through some
,Iold photos on my computer and
1ound some buried treasure. Ac-
- 'tually, they were pictures of'my
dog Pepper when she was just
a pup and smaller than the size
of my foot. My heart warmed as
I saw her with rabbit ears which
her face has now grown into and
the excited look she has always
had just hanging out with me.
Over the last three years, she
has changed in some ways and
has stayed the same in others. If
you had told me that my semi-
hyper dog would adopt a kitten to
play with and to protect, I would
never have believed it. It has hap-
pened.
Another thing has also hap-
pened. I used to find it amusing
that many pets and pet owners
start to look and act alike after a
certain amount of time. I recently
came face to face with the reality
that although my dog and I don't
share some of the same physical
attributes, we do have some of
the same personality quirks.
While on vacation in North
Georgia, I bought a large water-
melon which we put in the cold
trout stream to cool down. When
we went to retrieve it during the
heat of the next day, the water-
melon was gone. It had rained
during the night, and the water-
melon had become dislodged.
We found it downstream at the
base of a steep drop off.
We sent my young and agile
nephew down the steep bank
to retrieve the watermelon, and
Pepper decided to go down with
him. I grabbed the watermelon as
it was lifted up and then gave a
hand to help my nephew up. Pep-
per tried to go up the steep bank,
but didn't make it. Then she tried
swimming across the stream, but


the current keep sweeping her
further downstream. She was
stuck in the small bend of the riv-
er and was trying again and again
to get footing to get Out; '.
Seeing my -dog struggling,,, I
called to her, but she didn't re-
spond. So, I went down the bank
into the water to help her. She
was so caught up in her situa-
tion that she still didn't come to
my calls. She had already tried to
go up the bank and had failed.
I was wading in Water that she
would have to swim in to get to
me. She was trying to do it on
her own, and did not trust to go
into the deep for me to help her
out. Running out of options, she
finally got close enough that I was
able to get a hold of her and give
her a boost up the bank. Where
she had failed before on her own
efforts, she was successful when
she let her master help her up.
Upon reflection, I saw myself
in her actions in my relationship
with my Master: Often when I get
in a jam or a tough situation, I try
to get out of it all by myself with
my own efforts. I don't always use
all of the resources or people God
has made available to help me
up and out. I can imagine God's
frustration in calling to me, reach-
ing out to me, trying to show me
the way out from His higher per-
spective, while I struggle in the
currents that are rushing at me,
threatening to sweep me away.
Knowing my relief and joy, I can
imagine His relief and joy when I
finally let go and let God, and use
those resources and people He
has blessed me with to help lift
me up to higher ground.
Lord, help me to not be so
caught up in my situation that I
don't respond to Your voice. Help
me to remember that I'm not
alone and that I don't need to do
it all myself.

to make Hendry County a safer, more wholesome community where they can live, work, play and raise their families.
I have worked very hard during this time to build and maintain good, working relationships with local, state and
federal law enforcement agencies so that we could benefit from their expertise. Created and continue to promote, an

diligently to accomplish those changes, exceeding expectations. But my work, is not done. I need to continue the
progress that we have started and I need your help and your vote.

My strong educational background, 20 years of active and reserve military service and more than 37 years of law

experience and the know-how to serve you. No other candidate has these qualifications or experience. No other

School is opening; let the games begin! OREE DONUT*I


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
It's not only with the Olym-
pics that games and contests take
place.
School also seems to be one of
those places as well.
Now with school opening in a
few days, I thought about a part
of academic life that wasn't al-
ways on the curriculum.
The many years I spent in
school was mostly as a student;
I've also taught at a college, was
on the faculty of another universi-
ty, taught at a Church School and
directed a center for child training
over the years.
Much of what happened let
me teach or learn in very special
ways.
My daughter, for example,
started the first grade and came
home one day saying she was
having a problem with arithme-
tic.
This is not something that is
too unusual; lots of stories about
girls and science and math, if you
believe them.
I went to meet with her teacher
and found a dedicated young lady
who seemed to love her children.
Her class was full of posters
and work that she did herself
to brighten the room, she was'
well-liked by her students, includ-
ing my daughter, and her fellow
teachers.
I listened.
She felt my daughter wasn't.
doing what- she was capable of
doing.


She told me "I'd be happy if
she did one page of math a day."
I told her "No, you tell heryou'd
be happy if she did four pages a
day. Then she'll frown and say
'Can I do two?' And you frown
and say 'Well, all right'." She was
in a third grade math book by the
end of the first grade.
I was Examining Chaplain for
a large region of the Church I
served.
Recent seminary graduates
were required to pass my exams
before being ordained.
I made the exams challenging
but covered areas they were likely
to encounter in their first minis-
tries; trying to give them a "head
start" on their new calling.
One graduate apparently de-
cided she wasn't going to do it.
I got all sorts of excuses: her
computer went bad, she had to
have knee surgery, she couldn't
find enough time due to interrup-
tions, she had to return home due
to a family emergency.
Each time my answer was the
same: "I'll give you more time."
Finally a half-hearted effort was
made and she had her husband
drive several hundred miles to de-
liver what she did, even though I
told her she could have sent it by
express mail.
She countered that I was a
"stickler" for getting things done
on time (even after all of the ex-
tensions granted!)
I told her that what she had
done was accepted and I would
wait for the rest of it before mak-
ing any evaluation.
She then went to some of my


fellow clergy and attempted to get
them to intervene.
Those who were taken in
would tell. me she would "have
a bad taste in her mouth" as she
began ministry because I asked
so much of her.
I stood my ground. When it
became apparent that she would
not get ordained without doing
the required work, she settled in
and did it.
I provided the testimonials and
was there to support her on the
"big day." I had been on the other
side too; wondering how little I
could do that would be accept-
able.
I had students ask me "Is this
enough?" When it came to writ-
ing a paper that we assigned.
One student would come with
excuses why she didn't study
each time a test was schedules;
I told her that I would provide a
make-up exam and did.
The textbook publishers gave
me a list of questions that went
with each chapter; I could con-
struct as many make-up tests as
fast as she could come up with
reasons she couldn't take the test
that day.
She was given an "incom-
plete" in the course and I hope
she made it up when she found
enough time to study.
The one who was called
"Rabbi" "teacher" reminded us
that "a disciple is not above his
teacher, but everyone when he is
fully taught will be like his teacher
(Luke 6:40).".
I've encountered some won-
derful teachers over the years at


all levels, in all sorts of settings.
Some were formally "teach-
ers", others were clergy, doctors,
parents, colleagues.
- At my 50th high school re-
union earlier in the summer, we
reminisced about some of the
great influences in our lives, how
they helped us and the great con-
tributions they made.
Long after our "antics" and
testing of limits, we realized how
we had been blessed by what
they did for us.
They seemed to.understand,
taught us in spite of it all, gave un-
told hours and often were poorly-
or uncompensated for what they
did beyond the call of duty.
We were still growing, testing
limits and dreaming up ways to
avoid "work" at times.
In spite of it all, they knew their
craft and did.a great job.
May God bless our teachers
and students as a new school
year begins; and may they experi-
ence the joys of the Great Teacher
and the disciples-learners that fol-
lowed Him.
SHe was known as "Rabbi" -
"teacher," knowing His subject,
knowing all of those that would
follow and learn from Him, know-
ing the needs and weaknesses of
those He came to serve.
He gave Himself, even when
those who needed to learn could
not appreciate or understand
the greatest of gifts that Had for
them.
It 'is among.our greatest privi-
leges to share with the Lord as a
teacher and learner.

Become a "Citizen Scientist" for a day


By Nancy Dale
Special to the Glades County
Democrat
It's that time again when
Florida's seasons gradually shift
from intense summer heat to the
cooler breezes of approaching
Fall and thousands of real "snow
birds" flock into Glades/Hendry
Counties.
The weather changes fill the
air with bird songs and color the
sky with winged formations of
hundreds of species and num-
bers of migratory birds that flock
to Florida to escape extreme cold
weather to nest in miles of tall
green forests of Everglades trees
and pine prairies.
"Once again, area 'Citizen
Scientists' are called upon to aid
scientific teams in the annual
North American Migratory Count,
Saturday, Sept. 20, supported by
the Florida Ornithological Society;
local Audubon and other organi-
zations," according Margaret Eng-
land of the Hendry/Glades Audu-
bon Society.
"Last year was the second
count performed in the joint
counties. From 2006, there were
93 reported species observed by
40 participants who hiked and
paddled through prairies and
swamps in the Big Cypress and
other local areas. Even with the
drought conditions of 20007,
we had 112 species reported in
Glades/Hendry counties and a to-

tal of over 22,344 individual birds.
"Although, a grant furnished
43 Eastern Bluebird nesting boxes
for people in the area, bluebirds
have not yet been reporting nest-
ing in them. Maybe by the Spring
they will find them," added Eng-
land.
"This year the bird count sur-
vey will be expanded around
Fisheating Creek where individu-
als from their homes or ranches
can participate, as well as teams
designated to explore a wider
area around the Creek," added
England.
Last year's organizer Lor-


raine Margeson of the St. Pe-
tersburg Audubon Society said,
"The Fisheating Creek Wildlife
Management Area (FECWMA)
contains the luminous, and only.
undisturbed ever, free running
tributary left in the State of Florida
and is a hotbed of life and ex-
emplary natural Florida that has
been seen only by a few people
besides locals."
On Sept. 20th, teams of bi-
ologists and volunteers will be
assigned to monitor and record
data over a 23 hour period, from
dawn to dust, then meet at Sabal
Palm Campground to correlate


preliminary findings at the end of
the day.
"It is a day of work and fun for
all," adds Deen Mountain, who
guided teams of scientists and
volunteers through the Fisheating
Creek area.
"Glades/Hendry counties need
to be birded and examined in-
depth and guarded by all of us
who care to prevent any damage
ever occurring to this magical
place.
"The importance to Florida of
the migratory bird is magnified
because of its geographic loca-
tion. Birds come to, or through
Florida originating as far north as
the Artic Circle and as far west
as Alaska with neotroprical mi-
grants fueling up before crossing
the Gulf of Mexico. The beauti-
ful Swallowtail Kite travels an-
nually thousands of milgs across
the Atlantic from Brazil to breed
and raise their fledglings in one of
the largest nesting areas located
along Fisheating Creek north of
Palmdale," said Margeson.
In a unanimous Resolution
presented at the annual meeting
of "Save Our Creek" organization
Aug. 9, the group voted to volun-
teer and support the upcoming
count.

ested can contact Margaret Eng-

Retired Floridian
group warns about
"tax swap"
TALLAHASSEE A prominent
association of retired Floridians
is warning its members that the
Amendment 5 "tax swap" on
this November's ballot would
likely impose unexpected costs
from new sales, and service taxes,
threatening the long-term solven-
cy of seniors' retirement plans.
The Florida Life Care Resi-
dents Association, a Tallahassee-
based association with more than
14,000 members residing in more
than 70 continuing-care retire-
ment communities, has raised
serious concerns about how new
taxes would affect thousands of
retired Floridians who rely upon
fixed incomes.
"The full effects of Amend-
ment 5 are completely unknown,
and that's something that has
deeply unsettled bur members,"
said Bennett Napier, executive
director of the Florida Life Care
Residents Association.
"Every retiree on a fixed in-
come knows that if they push
their finances past a tipping point,
they run the risk of someday run-
ning out of money. Our members
fear new taxes that come as a re-
sult of Amendment 5 could push
them closer toward that ledge." '
By eliminating property taxes
that pay for schools, Amendment
5 would require the Florida Legis-
lature to create new taxes to raise
at least $10 billion to fund educa-
tion.
Most observers say this money
likely would come from a remov-
al of existing sales tax exemptions
or a new tax on services.
But for more than 28,000 Flor-
ida seniors who live in more than
70 continuing care retirement
communities, it's possible that
such taxes would raise the cost of
services upon which seniors rely,
including:
Monthly community mainte-


nance feegsr
Community entrance fees,
Meal plans,
Home health. and nursing
care, and
Laundry.
This means that tens of thou-
sands of retired Floridians, on
fixed incomes, would have to pay
far more in living costs than they
had planned.
These unexpected new costs
could have, potentially cata-
strophic effects on the budgets
of retirement communities and
of residents, pushing them to the
tipping point of eventually run-
ning out of money.
'.Our members worked hard,
saved and planned responsibly
for their retirements," said John
Paul Dalsimer of Pompano Beach,
president of the Florida Life Care
Residents Association.
"Every one of us developed
a long-term plan to ensure we'd
have enough money throughout
our retirement, and we want peo-
ple to understand that major new,
unexpected costs from a state
sales and/or services tax jeopar-
dize these financial plans."
This concern was highlighted
this-July by a new report by Ernst
& Young, a global auditing and ac-
counting firm, which warns that
Floridians near retirement have
a 75 percent chance of outliving
their assets.
Newly retired Floridians have
a 61 percent chance of someday
running out of money.
To reduce their chance of out-
living their money to only 5 per-
cent, the report says that most
Floridians near retirement must
cut their spending to only 60 per-
cent of pre-retirement levels.
The report is available online
at http://www.paycheckforlife.
org/retirementvulnerabilityindex.
If unexpected new services tax
costs imposed by Amendment 5
push retired.Floridians into insol-
vency, thousands ,,ho worked
hard to fifiance privately their
own long-term care needs could

GLADES COUNTY COMMISSIONER. PAUL BECK
I moved to Moore Haven years ago because I enjoy the boating and
the fishing this area has to offer.
In my entire life, I have never seen anything as ridiculous as being
allowed to "BRIDGE FISH' at "SPORTSMANS" on highway78 between
Moore Haven and Lakeport. Fishing on a bridge where vehicles are
exceeding speeds of 60 mph is definitely a death trap with a lawsuit
in the making.
The people who fish there hang so many lines down that it re-
stricts boat navigation on the creek below. Half of the people who fish
there are county residents with cane poles, for which they don't need
a fishing license, therefore they don't contribute anything towards the
funding resources for our waterways. They also have no respect for
the boaters and they throw their garbage everywhere. Drive by and
take a good look under all the bushes, it's a sin. They also expect you
to stop while driving across the bridge so that they can walk back and
forth at their leisure.
This is an extremely dangerous place to fish. It just seems to me
that a "NO BRIDGE FISHING" sign would be a simple solution to a
number of nasty possibilities that can or do exist in this location.
I took a walk around the bridge and counted over 150 propane
cylinders, some of which have already been hit by a vehicle. Now how
dangerous would that be to have one flying past your windshield. This
problem really needs to be addressed and soon before something re-
ally serious happens.
Being a registered voter in the county, I believe a response to this
letter is needed, and then we can take it from there. We need to re-
solve this problem soon so as to keep someone from getting hurt and
to stop this litter problem. Our future of this troubled waterway de-
serves all the help it can get. I will be waiting for your response. Thank
you!
COUNTY COMMISSIONER MEETING
At the July 28th Glades County Commissioner meeting, a topic of
discussion was allow to the extend beyond the normal rules of pro-
cedures, to the extent that it became obvious that the Chairman Paul
Beck, was willfully allowing this abusive behavior to continue and one
would assume by his body language that he was amused.
Such arrogance and lack of leadership, should not be condoned,
and it was not until our county attorney Mr. Richard Pringle, got the
attending deputy's attention and at that point the deputy made a move
to restore order that Chairman Paul Beck recognized how far out of
hand his lack of leadership was allowing the meeting to deteriorate.
To think at a time when Mr. Beck is seeking re-election that his
continued arrogance in leadership is not recognized is and will only
help to aid in his defeat.

HORSES IN BUCKHEAD: I would like the people that have the
horses behind Buckhead Ridge Baptist Church on Hunter Road to
know that it is so nice to drive by and see their beautiful horses. I see
them working on the property every day, and I just want them to know
that their efforts have not gone noticed. This just goes to show you
that agriculture can live side by side with residential. Thank you for
having such a nice clean place.

Crime solved
We at Mickey's Bait and Tackle
recently got a first hand educa-
tion in what it means for a law
enforcement agency to say we
protect and serve.
On Thursday July 17, we had
an armed robbery at the store.
The response from the Glades
County Sheriff's Office and oth-


ers including Fish and Wildlife
officers was immediate and quite
remarkable. Sheriff- Whiddon's
team, from top to bottom, kicked
into gear and quickly and deci-
sively swung into action. Through
the professionalism and dedica-
tion of all those who participated
in this investigation the alleged
perpetrators were arrested in just
over four day's.


General News and


Plan now for
November
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "O" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Paho-
kee on November 22, and end at
Pahokee on November 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.

Free bread provided

fine folks at the New Hope

Your news



Is our news


Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

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

Clewiston Cougars look forward to season


Jamboree convenes
this weekend

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON Are you ready
for some pee-wee football?
For America's Sweetest Town,
it's a resounding yes.
The Clewiston Cougars pro-
gram looks to rebound from last
year's less than impressive sea-
son, where it went no further than
the first round of the Peace River
Conference tournament.
Here are last year's records for
all six teams:
Tiny Mites: 8-0 (undefeated;
the 5-to-7 year old group doesn't
have a playoff system)
Mighty Mites: 4-4 (the 6-to-8
year old team didn't make the
playoffs)
Junior Pee-Wees: 2-6 (the
8-to-I 1 year old team didn't make
the playoffs)
Pee-Wees: 6-2 (the 9-to-12
year old team lost in the opening
round to Immokalee)
Junior Midgets: 6-2 (the 11-
to-13 year old team lost in the
opening round to Immokalee)
Senior Midgets: No team
last year; will return for the first
time in two years.
Program objectives
Charles Felton, the organiza-
tion's president and head coach
of the Senior Midgets, sees win-
ning as a top priority, but not at
the expense of influencing the
program's 146 players to become
model citizens.
That means teaching the kids
about the basic fundamentals of
the game and team effort, among
other aspects.
"Winning is one of the goals,
but they need to become football
players first," Felton said. "It's not
all about winning, but coming to-
gether as a team. Winning comes
behind it."
Anyone who desires to be-
come a Cougar must keep at
least a 2.0 grade point average
(GPA). Felton said that if players
are found to be struggling in the
classroom,,he and'his coaching
staff will sit down with the kids
and help them with homework
assignments.
"Instead of kicking a kid off the
team because of grades, you got
to reach out the them, give them
the support they need to help
-. their grades get up," Felton said.
"I'll still try to be a positive influ-
ence to the kids when football
season's done."
What Felton means by that is
he'll be continually going to each

player's school to check on his
grades and behavior.
Felton added that he'll do what
he can to encourage his athletes
to stay away from negative influ-
ences.
"There's more to life than just
hanging out on the street corners
all the time," Felton said. "There
are other ways for the kids to make
a better life for themselves."
Players to watch
Brian Richardson, Senior
Midgets middle linebacker/
running back: The 13-year-old
led the Junior Midgets last season
in tackles (60) and touchdowns
(14). Coaches say the power run-
ner has a good attitude and can
play anywhere on the field, if
needed..
Chris Hardy, Senior Midg-
ets nose guard/defensive
tackle: Beginning play last year
as a Junior Midget, the 14-year-
old stood out by recording six
sacks and 35 tackles..
Coaches describe him as a fe-
rocious, no-nonsense player on
the field.
Artavious Freeman, Junior
Midgets quarterback/wide
receiver/linebacker: Coaches
say the 12-year-old can play all
over the field, including running
back and defensive end.
As a Pee-Wee last year, he led
the team in tackles (32) and was a
clutch force at running back with


eight touchdowns. Expect Free-
man to be counted on in close
games, especially on offense.
Demarcus Terry, Junior
Midgets running back/safety:
As a Pee-Wee last season, the 12-
year-old had 796 yards and 10
touchdowns as'a running back.
The quick and flashy back,
who coaches remind him of Ja-
mal Hubert in his heyday, also
caught four interceptions as a
safety in the 2007 season.
Giving back to the kids
The.coaching is happy to an-
nounce that this season, the
Cougars received new football
equipment, courtesy of Football
American.
The apparel includes new hel-
mets, pads, jerseys and mouth-
pieces, to name just a few.
Felton and his coaching staff
could not be any happier with the
new items.
It's just one way to show the
kids that they care about them.
"Somebody gave all of us
coaches the opportunity to play
when we were kids," Felton said
on behalf of the coaching staff.
"So, now, we feel its necessary to
give back to our kids and to the
community."
Upcoming schedule
The Cougars will begin the
2008 season this weekend with a
Jamboree game.


Scheduled for August 16-17,
the teams will be playing their
preseason game in Naples, where
they will be competing against
,the Naples Hurricanes and the
Immokalee Indians.
Playing each opponent for a
half, the Sr. Midgets, Jr. Midgets,
Pee-Wees and Jr. Pee-Wees will
take center stage on Saturday.
The Tiny Mites and Mighty. Mites
will play on Sunday.

gram:

Crape Myrtle for Florida Yards & Neighborhoods


By Angela Sachson
IFAS Extension Service
One of the most rewarding
of Florida Friendly plants is the
Crape Myrtle. It is native to India
and very well suited to Florida.
It can be used as a tree, a large
shrub,, a container plant and, in
the case of newer dwarf varieties,
a small shrub.
It is a beautiful plant with peel-
ing bark and clusters of blooms in
many colors of reds, pinks, laven-
ders and white
In south Florida, it blooms
from spring through summer and
if seed pods are removed it will
bloom longer since the flowers
appear on new growth.
Crape Myrtle is drought toler-
ant once established and can be
pruned to take many shapes-


tree, multi-stemmed small tree,
and bush. Once it gets established
the Crape Myrtle is not demand-
ing. Plant it in full sun in any kind
of soil. Feed it a with slow-release
fertilizer, water until it gets estab-
lished and it will reward you with
beautiful foliage and six to twelve
inch ruffled flowers.
You will probably need to
cut off sprouts at the base of the
plant. Root them if you want to-
Crape Myrtle is easily propagated
by removing a few lower leaves,
poking the sprout or cutting in a
pot, and keeping it moist'while it
grows roots. Give away these little
Myrtles and we can all enjoy see-
ing more Myrtles around here.
Crape Myrtle is nearly pest
free-especially if you purchase
one.which is bred to resist aphids
and resulting sooty mold. If you


do see aphids on your plant, at-
tack them weekly for a couple of
weeks with insecticidal soap.
This plant can be easily pruned
in very early spring but.prun-
ing should be done with care.
Small twiggy growth and cross-
ing, crowded branches should be
thinned out from underneath and
within the canopy. This keeps the
trunk clean and allows air circula-
tion, helping to prevent powdery
mildew. But severe topping and
pruning is referred to as "Crape
murder" and should be avoided.

Other great Crapes
I know you probably have a
Crape Myrtle or two in your land-
scape but since I am promoting
them today let me tell you about
some lesser-known beauties. One
of these may become your new


Crape Myrtle.
Queen Crape Myrtle is a kind
of spectacular giant Myrtle on
steroids. It is considered a moder-
ate to large tropical tree and can
reach a height of 40-60 feet and
30-40 feet wide.
It can grow in our zones 10B
and 11 and features 12-inch leaves
and foot-long blooms in pink or
lavender. It is, like your Crape
Myrtle, deciduous; and the leaves
turn red before falling in winter. It
has most of the attributes of the
smaller Crape Myrtle except that
it is not frost tolerant, especially
when young. There are some
growing in Okeechobee now but
it is some time since Okeechobee
has had frost. If you want to try
this mammoth beauty, consider
the pink cultivar "Nong Nooch,"
a real beauty.

Looking for something
smaller?
Sometimes referred to as
"Myrttlettes", dwarf Crape Myrtles
grow only three to four feet high.
They are good for mid-range in a
border and could even be used as
a ground cover on a slope. They
come in all the colors of their larg-
er relatives and their needs and
attributes are basically the same.
They are also often used for bon-
sai culture.
Lastly, some newer cultivars
are the mini-myrtles. These plants
are usually smaller, ranging from
12 to 30 inches tall. The Southern
Nursery Association has devel-
oped a list of favorites including
one called Houston which tops
out at 20 inches tall. I have not
seen one of the minis but am


looking around now. I would
think they would be good in a
pot-especially a hanging pot.
Crape Myrtles are a landscape
bargain. They grow quickly and
with minimal care. New ones are
easy to propagate and older ones
are drought tolerant. They like
just about any soil. Their roots are
not invasive so they can be plant-
ed where other trees might not
make it. There are disease and
pest resistant varieties and even
the pests that do attack are easy
to defeat. They come in many col-
ors and sizes from 60 feet to sev-
eral inches. Lets have as many as
we have room for!
