Moore Haven men helping


USS Gettysburg
supports troops
stationed in Iraq
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Delores
Dionne and Minnie Ford are lo-
cal ladies who have sons serving
overseas. Ms. Dionne's son, Tra-
vis Page, and Ms. Ford's son, Di-
langin Young, joined the United
States Navy in 2004.
They enlisted in the military's
buddy program, completed boot
camp together and are now on
board the USS Gettysburg de-


played in the Arabian Gulf. Both
of them are boatswain's mates
on the 567-foot guided missile
cruiser.
The USS Gettysburg carries
two Seahawk (SH-60) helicop-
ters, guided missiles, torpedoes,
rapid-fire cannons, and is ca-
pable of defeating threats from
land, air, sea and beneath the
sea. Her home port is in May-
port, Fla.
Recently, Petty Officer Tra-
vis Page was recognized by the
military for his role on the flight
deck team while engaged in in-
flight refueling. According to Mr.
Page, in-flight refueling refers to
putting fuel into the helicopter


during emergencies while it is
still airborne and cannot land on
the flight deck.
Petty Officer Dilangin Young
directs activities relating to the
flight deck, deck equipment,
maintenance of the ship's exter-
nal structure and provides secu-
rity watch.
Both Page and Young were
happy to accept a few questions
by email and they returned their
responses.
Question: What is the most
dangerous or stressful thing
about your work on the cruiser?

MOORE HAVEN Two
men were arrested in connec-:
tion with a traffic stop that re-
sulted in the seizure of 1,178
grams of cocaine.
Deputy Sheriff Bryan Ender-
le was on road. patrol Sept. 5
when he noticed a car travel-
ing on U.S.27 which had front
windows with a non-transpar-


ent tint, according to an arrest
report released by the Glades
County Sheriff's Office.
Since he was unable to see
the occupants he conducted a
traffic stop in order to test the
transparency of the tint.
According to the arrest re-
port, the car stopped near the
Marathon station when the
deputy turned on his emergen-
cy lights. The driver did not roll
down the window, and Deputy
Sheriff Enderle found it neces-

LAKEPORT One morn-
ing several years ago the phone
rang just before first light.
To my surprise, there was
no "hello" or morning greeting.
There was instead, a hurried
voice saying, "Get your cam-
eras and a thermos of coffee
and head up Route 78 by the
lake. Don't waste any time get-
tin' there. When you're within
hollerin' distance of Lakeport
watch for the dike that runs
west from the road. Drive out
there and look south. Bye."
Without losing any time
that's just what we did. Having
lived in Florida for many years
we should not have been sur-


prised at what we saw. It was
not just a surprise; it was a mag-
nificent shock to see millions
and millions of golden flowers
with their heads held high in
the early morning sunlight.
There was'no breeze, noth-
ing to disturb this stunning
scene. As far as eye could see,
these pure gold faces marched
off in every direction.
Of course an effort was
made to botanically identify
these grandiose flowers but
alas, unsuccessfully. One year a
single plant was dug with both,
buds and flowers and quick'
ly taken to the late Drs. Marga-;
ret and Walton Gregory, bota-
nists whose specialty was plant
identification. Again,

New bakery and deli opens up


Business opened
Sept. 5
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The J.T.
Williams Bakery & Deli opened
Sept. 5 at 805 U.S. Highway 27
N.W in Moore Haven, next to the
game room.
Farron and J.T. Williams be-
gan the business after they real-
ized their three little ones needed
to go to preschool. Instead of Ms.
Williams going to work for some-
one else, they decided to open the
bakery and deli.


Ms. Williams recal
was an idea she has
high school. She is a
baker who studied
books in detail. Even


kitchen experiments met with
success. J.T. Willliams joined his
wife and baked for two years. In-
ternet research found some new
favorites, too.
One customer favorite is her
cinnamon coffee cake that has a
tender, fluffy texture with just a lit-
tle crunch. She had to make 15 of
them last week just to meet cus-
tomer's requests. Her specialties
are cakes, cupcakes and muffins.
Ms. Williams and her assistant,
Kim Roberts, can create cakes for
all occasions and holidays.
Decorating the cakes involves
techniques that take a steady
hand and practice and while she
practiced a lot, she needed to


said the baker.
Other goodies at J.T. Williams
Bakery & Deli include sandwich-
es, salad, soup, donuts and crois-
sants.
While getting the store ready,
the Williams helped by friends
and relatives hunted for furnish-
ings and d6cor. They were thrifty
and went to flea markets, yard
sales, and raided their own clos-
ets.
The Williams are excited
about their sweet, new business
and have to keep on their toes
constantly, because their three-
year-old twins and a little 2-year-
old are busy, busy, busy.

The Clewiston Inn on the Ridge


Beryl Bowden wrote for
the Clewiston News in the
1980s. Thanks to the Clew-
iston Museum, we have the
drafts of her articles on local
history. Clewiston Museum,
in cooperation with Florida
Gulf Coast University, has
loaded into a University of
Florida digital library file,
over 700 local historic pho-
tographs. The Museum has
generously given the newspa-
per permission to use these
photographs.
The following article by Beryl
Bowden tells the story of the
Clewiston Inn.
The Clewiston Inn, one of the
best known hotels- in this area is
successor hotel to the first Clew-
iston Inn, located on the ridge
along the lakeshore, east of the
extension of Francisco Street.
This earlier version was built of
wood frame and Celotex and was
intended to help publicize the use
of Celotex wallboard, which was
made from bagasse, the residue
of the sugar cane left after milling
the sugar syrup out of it.
The Inn used Celotex for in-
terior and exterior walls. The

manufacturer of the sturdy, fiber
board, a soft light brown, spoke
of its insulating and weather re-
sistance. Its use on walls and ceil-
ings improved the acoustics of
any room.
The Inn building was two sto-
ries with many windows open-
ing to the lake breezes. Its lobby
was spacious, the west wing of
guest rooms, the lobby and din-


ing room were completed first.
The dining room was on the west
end, adjacent to the two-story
Watanabe Hotel. For a time the
Watanabe kitchen prepared the
food for both dining rooms. One
waitress said, the food was exact-
ly the same in both dining rooms,
but if it was served in the Inn, it
cost a little more.
This was only for a short time,


Engagement


for when the new Watanabe Ho-
tel was built a couple of blocks
away, the old one was torn down
and the Inn kitchen and another
bedroom wing was built to com-
plete the building. These rooms
were on the west end of the build-
ing and had a separate entrance,
not accessible from the lobby. A
number of locally employed per-
sons lived in this wing, leaving the
east wing for travelers.
The Inn was well furnished, at-
tractive, and comfortable. A single
$20,000 shipment of furnishings
from a New York supply house in-
cluded everything needed: all fur-
niture, all kitchen equipment, all
table settings for the dining room,
all linens for the bedrooms, rugs,
decorative items, ferneries, porch
furniture and blue and white
uniforms for the waitresses and
white coats for porters and bus
boys. There were bridge tables
and chairs, folding cots and baby
cribs.
The Inn became the choice of
visiting dignitaries and the scene
of countless small happenings
that brightened the lives of the
residents of this busy little town.

Stetson University celebrates building

dedications, groundbreaking


DELAND Growth and
change at Stetson University
were celebrated this month with
groundbreaking for construction
of two buildings on campus and
the dedication of five buildings
given new names.
Ceremonial groundbreaking
were held Sept. 21, for the Homer
and Dolly Hand Art Center and
Stetson's new Science Center.
Construction will get under way
in the next few months on these
and two other academic facilities,
with the buildings opening during
the 2008-09 academic year, which
will be Stetson's 125th anniver-
sary. The four projects represent
$13 million in new construction
at Stetson.
The new 5,000-square-foot
Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center
will feature two galleries one to
exhibit rotating selections from
Stetson's Vera Bluemner Kouba
Collection of art by Modernist
painter Oscar Bluemner (1867-
1938) and the second to display
other works from the university's
permanent art collection or for
special shows. It will be located
between Sampson Hall and the


duPont-Ball Library on'campus.
Longtime Stetson trustee
and alumna Dolly Hand and her
husband, Homer Hand, of Belle
Glade, made the lead gift for the
art center. Dolly Hand is a 1949
graduate of Stetson's College of
Law. She has served on the Stet-
son University Board of Trustees
since 1994. The Hands own and
operate Hand Enterprises, the
management company for their
land holdings. They are active in
civic affairs in the Belle Glade/
Okeechobee area.
The first phase of the Science
Center will be a 22,000-square-
foot expansion to the front (west
side) of the existing science build-
ing, Sage Hall. The new two-story
section will increase space for
science at Stetson by nearly 50
percent.
Three of the university's new
residence halls and the club-
house at the University Village
Apartments were named during
a dedication ceremony Sept. 21
at which donors were honored.

SFWMD creates Office of Ombuds and Open Government


WEST PALM BEACH The
South Florida Water Management
District announced the creation of
the Office of Ombuds and Open
Government, merging the Dis-
trict's public records, Ombuds and
citizen services functions into one
centralized location. The State's
largest water management agency
is taking strides to further enhance
customer service, promote public
access to government and more
efficiently respond to customer
concerns and inquiries. The office
will be headed by Carolyn L. Wil-
liams, who has served as District
Ombuds for the past three years.
"This new office is a part of the
District's effort to further the Gov-
ernor's priorities of open govern-
ment and customer service," said


South Florida Water Management
District Governing Board Chair-
man Eric Buermann. "By combin-
ing the public records office with
our Ombuds function, the District
will be able to better use its avail-
able resources and more efficient-
ly and effectively respond to the
needs of its constituents."
The Office of Ombuds and
Open Government provides a
centralized point of contact for
general inquiries, addressing cus-
tomer concerns and processing
information requests. With ac-
cess to the District's entire orga-
nization, the office will provide
efficient and timely responses to
citizen requests. As a part of its
active public records program,
the District will continue to pro-


vide public records training to
its staff, ensuring that the agency
complies with Florida's statutory
requirements. So far this year,
the public records office has pro-
cessed close to .900 requests for
public documents.
"This is another step toward
ensuring the State's largest wa-
ter management district is ac-
countable and transparent," said
South Florida Water Management
District Executive Director Carol
A. Wehle. "The District takes its
responsibilities to the Florida
taxpayers seriously. The Office of
Ombuds and Open Government
will provide Floridians with cen-
tralized access to the District and
allow this agency to continue to
improve its operations, policies


and decision-making through
feedback from our constituents."
In accord with Governor Char-
lie Crist's priorities, the office will
promote transparency and ac-
countability in government and
ensure that incoming written
correspondence and verbal inqui-
ries receive a timely response. In
addition, the District's Ombuds
will continue to help constituents
understand the policies, practices
and programs of the agency, facil-
itate citizen-staff interactions and
encourage amicable resolution of
issues and concerns.
"By enhancing public access
through the creation of an effec-
tive Office of Ombuds and Open
Government, the District sends a
strong and serious message about


City of Pahokee balances 2007-2008 budget


Pahokee's millage
rate, budget set for
fiscal year

By Naji Tobias
INI
PAHOKEE Pahokee city
commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve both a resolu-
tion to the final budget and the fi-
nal millage'rate for the 2007-2008
fiscal year.
The fiscal year began on Mon-
day and ends Sept. 30, 2008.
The final budget for the fis-


cal year is set at $7,918,215, up
$34,681 from the 2006-2007 fiscal
year budget.
Of the budget amount set for
this fiscal year, $3,752,700 will
be used toward the general fund
while $3,216,176 will go towards
the water and sewer fund. The
amount of $640,736 will be utilized
for the garbage and sold waste en-
terprise fund and $246,107 will be
used for the Pahokee-Port Mayaca
Cemetery Fund.
Also, the 2007-2008 millage
rate for the fiscal year is set at
$7.02 per $1,000 in taxable value
for the budget's general fund.
Combined with the Palm Beach


County municipal service tax unit
(MSTU) of 2.7794 mills set by the
county's board of commissioners,
the city's tentative proposed mill-
age rate overall is set at 9.7994.
That's a slight reduction of
0.2006 mills from the 2006-2007
fiscal year, when the city's millage
rate was 10.00 per $1,000 in tax-
able value.
The gross taxable value for this
fiscal year, certified and set by the
county's property appraiser, is
$98,679,229, while the ad valorem
taxes will be set at $692,728 a
$15,289 increase from last year's
taxes.
Pahokee City Manager Lillie


J. Latimore said that in addition d
to the passage of the budget and
millage rate, the city has benefited
from a balanced budget despite
a cut in ad valorem revenue re-
ceipts.
Ms. Latimore was very happy
with how the city has progressed
over the past year.
"We are proud to say that we
have ended the year with a healthy
financial status," Ms. Latimore
said. "I'm proud of the work that
we've done and we have done ex-
ceptionally well."

butions to water reuse in Florida"
during the 22nd Annual WateRe-
use Symposium.
For the award, the District was
recognized for its prominent role
in the establishment of Florida's
state section of the WateReuse As-
sociation, known as WateReuse
Florida; for organizing and hold-
ing the Section's first water reuse
seminar in May 2007 and for con-
tinuing contributions and support
to WateReuse Florida..
"As regional water managers


and stewards of the environment,
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District naturally has chosen
to take a leadership role in the
development of water reuse in
Florida and while we are off to a
great start through various proj-
ects already online, communities
must continue to develop and im-
plement reuse solutions to protect
Florida's future water supplies,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Reuse reduc-
es reliance on traditional water
sources and replenishes valuable
water supplies, while providing an
environmentally sound means for
managing wastewater. As a result,
it can lessen the adverse impacts
of drought and help municipali-
lies meet the water demands of
growing populations."
Additionally, the WateReuse
Association presented awards to
the best and the brightest in the
water reuse and desalination fields
during the Symposium. The pres-
tigious awards recognize superior
water reuse, reclamation and recy-
cling projects that advance reuse,
utilize new reclamation technolo-
gies or make significant contribu-
tions to water reuse and/or desali-
nation across the United States.
TIo projects funded in part by
the District the Water Conserv
II in Orange County and the City


of West Palm Beach's Wetland-
Based Water Reclamation Project
- received a 2007 WateReuse As-
sociation Award of Merit.
Water Conserv II was the first
permitted reuse project in Florida
to use reclaimed water to irrigate
crops produced for human con-
sumption. For more than 20 years,
this multi-faceted project has
provided high quality reclaimed
water to its customers, which in-
clude citrus groves, golf courses,
landscape nurseries, tree farms
and residential lawns. Water Con-
serv II currently reuses over 31
million gallons of reclaimed water
per day.
The City of West Palm Beach's
Wetland-Based Water Reclama-
tion Project uses highly treated
reclaimed water to-xestore wet-
lands, augment local water re-
sources and reduce the amount
of effluent disposed via deep-well
injection. This project is the first of
its kind in Florida.
Water reuse is a vital alterna-
tive source of water for the State
of Florida. To assist entities in
implementing reuse, the District
and the State of Florida have in-
vested $24.6 million over the past
two years to fund 71 water reuse
projects through the District's Al-
ternative Water Supply Funding
Program. These projects added


93 million gallons per day of re-
claimed water capacity to the re-
gional supply.
More than 100 water reuse
systems throughout South Florida
currently produce more than 230
million gallons of reclaimed wa-
ter each day the equivalent of
nearly 15,000 residential swim-
ming pools. This water is used to
irrigate hundreds of golf courses
and thousands of residential lots
as well as to provide environmen-
tal enhancement and recharge of
regional water resources across
the District's 16 counties.
To see water reuse in action
in South Florida, visit Palm Beach
County's Green Cay and Wako-
dahatchee Wetlands, :where re-
claiimed water is used ftenhance,

The WateReuse Association is
an international non-profit orga-
nization whose mission is to ad-
vance the beneficial and efficient
use of water resources through
education, sound science, and
technology using reclamation,
recycling, reuse and desalination
for the benefit of its members, the
public and the environment.

Florida Department of Community Affairs awards grants


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Community Affairs
today announced the award of
more than $20.3 million for hous-
ing and community improvement
grants designed primarily to help
low- to moderate-income Florid-
ians. Six Florida counties and 27
cities will receive a share of the
Small Cities Community Develop-
ment Block Grant (CDBG) funds,
awarded annually on a competi-
tive basis.
"Sometimes Florida's smaller
communities need a little extra
help with local improvement
efforts, and this program is an
important resource for their resi-
dents," said DCA Secretary Tom


Pelham. "Through this program,
funds will go where they are most
needed to enhance the quality of
life in Florida's low- to moderate-
income neighborhoods."
The Small Cities CDBG pro-
gram is designed to assist com-
munities too small to receive au-
tomatic, or "entitlement," funds
from the federal government.
Most smaller Florida communi-
ties -- cities of less than 50,000
population or counties of less
than 200,000 -- are eligible to ap-
ply for grants to address housing
rehabilitation, neighborhood re-
vitalization and commercial revi-
talization.
The total amount of this
award to Florida communities is


$20,385,194.80. Of this, slightly
more than $10.6 million is des-
ignated for neighborhood revi-
talization, $8 million for housing
rehabilitation projects and $1.5
million for improvements to de-
clining commercial areas. An
additional $254,420 is awarded
for planning and design specifica-
tions for infrastructure.
Funds are allocated to states
by the U.S. Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development,
based on a formula developed
by Congress, to meet the national
objectives to principally benefit
low- and moderate-income per-
sons, prevent or eliminate slum
or blight, or address other urgent
community development needs.


Small cities CDBG program
funds for housing, neighborhood
revitalization and commercial re-
vitalization are awarded to local
communities by the state once a
year based on a competitive ap-
plication process. Eligible com-
munities may apply for housing,
neighborhood or commercial
grants only if they have no other
CDBG grants open at the time.
The Department of Commu-
nity Affairs helps Florida's com-
munities meet the challenges of
growth, reduce the effects of di-
sasters and invest in the commu-
nity. For more information regard-
ing the Department or the Small
Cities CDBG program, please visit

Make your first garden hassle free


Fall means garden time in
South and Central Florida. We
have been stuck inside in the heat
of summer and are ready to get
out and enjoy ourselves. You may
be thinking you would like to
venture into flower or vegetable
gardening. Here are some tips to
help make your experience pleas-
ant. This is not an exhaustive
how-to; it's more of a do not do
what I did.
Start small You may fancy
flowers or vegetables but start
with a small garden bed. Becom-
ing overwhelmed with garden
chores will not advance your
.gardening career! It is hard for
me to believe but you might not
even like it. If it turns out to be a
breeze, enlarge later. In Florida,
since we garden all year round,
a new garden can be started just
about any time.
Plan a bit Before you head
to the nursery or garden store
think about what you want from
this new garden -- Beauty? Food?
Both? Then learn something
about the size the plants will
be when they are mature and
whether they will fit nicely in the
space you have reserved. Moving
full-grown plants around isn't that
much fun. If you want vegetables
or sun-loving flowers, put the.
garden where it gets 6-8 hours of
sunlight each day.
Put your new garden near


I


the house. You need to see it ev-
ery day -- maybe twice a day. That
way you can see if it needs water;
seedlings, seeds and transplants
almost always do need water. A
little later, you will be observing
whether weeds need removing-
-- some gardeners cannot pass
a weed without pulling it. If you
turn out to be that gardener, be
sure to start out early. Your boss
may not accept "weed pulling" as
an excuse for being late. Eventu-
ally, every morning and every eve-
ning, you want to see your garden
grow and produce beautiful flow-
ers, or vegetables.
Over prepare your plant-
ing bed. It's hard to over-im-
prove the soil. Rare is the soil
that has all the attributes to grow
healthy plants. Ours is sandy and
does not hold water or nutrients
well. Add organic matter (com-
posted manure is available and
very inexpensive), like peat moss
or compost if you can get it
Learn a little about water-
ing. New plants need lots of wa-
ter at first but please water care-
fully. Watering at the root zonefor
small plants and just sprinkling
seeds and seedlings is the way to
be certain the tiny infants are not
dislodged and washed to the far
end of the bed. There goes gar-
den symmetry. When your plants
are a little bigger and a lot bigger,
water the roots rather than the


foliage. Place plants with similar
water needs together (that's right
plant-right place). A soaker hose
is an inexpensive way to deliver
water slowly and just where you
want it.
Don't buy a bunch of
tools. If you develop a love of
gardening, you will find you have
favorite tools. Don't acquire them
now--you don't know which are
going to be your favorites. Bor-
row, or choose only one or two
-- a good hoe like the push-pull,
which is especially good at weed-
ing. And -- the best hose you can
afford. Kinky is not cute in the
hose world and can dampen a
new gardener's sprit. Fast.
Start Easy. Easy vegetables
are beans, lettuce, onions (grow
these from sets), tomatoes. Plant
your favorites -- you may need to
eat a lot! Sandy Florida soil is great
for root crops such as radishes
and carrots and you can plant
them together since radishes are
ready when carrots are just com-
ing up.
If you are growing flowers or
shrubs, look for drought-tolerant
selections at the plant supplier or
easy flower seeds like Zinnias and
Marigold that germinate quickly
and grow fast too. Kids love the
fast growers!
Use Newspaper. Read
first and mulch last. Never throw
a newspaper away. In your easy

and small new garden, you will
place newspaper next to your
plants and some kind of mulch
to hold it in place. This will help
to reduce weeds and help hold
moisture.
Understand weeds and
expect them. When you create
a beautiful, rich, attractive place
for plants to grow you can surely
see how opportunistic critters like
weeds will want to live there. In
fact, weed seeds are probably
lurking there waiting to appear.
That is why building your bed ear-
ly is a good thing. You can spade
up those first weeds that sprout
before you even plant the good
stuff. Once it is planted, scout
your garden -- that means watch
it closely. Get those weeds before
they get too big.
And the first most important
way to prevent discouragement
in the new garden:
Take some time to sit
and watch your garden grow.
A chair or bench needs to be in-
stalled here. Remember, this is
supposed to be enjoyable.
If you have questions, be sure
to call your county extension of-
fice or visit the Master Gardeners
there. Experienced gardeners love
to help newbiess." In addition,
they will commiserate. They have
probably been there.
In Glades County, call (863)

Local resident completes basic training


CLEWISTON Navy Seaman
Recruit Travis J. McCatty, son of Ja-
net P. and David McCatty of Clewis-
ton, recently completed U.S. Navy
basic training at Recruit Training
Command, Great Lakes, Ill.
During the eight-week pro-
gram, McCatty completed vari-


ous training including classroom
study and practical instruction on
naval customs, first aid, firefight-
ing, water safety and survival,
and shipboard and aircraft safety.
Physical fitness was emphasized.
The capstone event of boot
camp is "Battle Stations". This ex-


ercise gives recruits the skills and
confidence they need to succeed
in the fleet. "Battle Stations" is de-
signed to galvanize the basic war-
rior attributes of sacrifice, dedica-
tion, teamwork and endurance in
each recruit through the practical
application of basic Navy skills


and the core values of Honor,
Courage and Commitment. It's
distinctly Navy flavor was de-
signed to take into account what
it means to be a Sailor.
Travis McCatty is a 2007 gradu-
ate of Clewiston High School of
Clewiston.


Painful muscle cramps may be prevented


Anyone who ever experienced
a Charley horse won't forget it.
The sudden pain can wake you
up in the middle of the night with
a calf muscle tightened into a
hard ball.
According to the National
Institute of Health (NIH) web
site, www.nlm,nih.gov, a "Char-

caused by sudden muscle con-
traction.

To relieve a muscle cramp, the
NIH suggests gently massaging
the muscle, gently stretching the
muscle, or taking a hot shower or
hot bath to relax the muscle.
To prevent nocturnal leg
cramps, the NIH recommends
staying hydrated by drinking
eight glasses of water of day, eat-
ing a balanced diet and getting
regular exercise. Because muscle
cramps are sometimes related to
a potassium deficiency, eating a
banana every day may help pre-
vent them.

If you suffer from frequent
muscle cramps, consult your
doctor. Muscle cramps maybe
related to a number of other
medical conditions. Blood tests
may be necessary to determine
the cause of the cramps and the
best treatment.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-

This is especially important if

Lifeline helps make phone service affordableM-
Man Fri


TALLAHASSEE The Flor-
ida Public Service Commission
(PSC) today approved new rules
to benefit customers eligible for
Lifeline Assistance (Lifeline) ser-
vice by expediting the process
to enroll them in the program.
Lifeline provides discounts of
$162 annually to eligible Flo-
ridians for telephone service.
'A state agency that determines a
person is eligible for Lifeline ser-
vice is also required by Florida
statute to immediately forward


the information to the PSC for au-
tomatic enrollment.
The decision comes as the
automatic enrollment process,
begun in April 2007, passes the
50,000 application mark. In the
automatic enrollment process,
applicants for programs admin-
istered by the Department of
Children and Families (DCF) are
asked if they are interested in
receiving a $13.50 monthly dis-
count on their phone service. If
they check yes on the DCF ap-


plication and are approved for a
DCF program, their information
is electronically sent to the PSC
which forwards that informa-
tion to the appropriate telephone
company for enrollment in the
Lifeline program. In accordance
with Florida law, all Lifeline ap-
plicant information is handled in
a confidential manner.
"The Florida Public Service
Commission and the Department
of Children and Families continue
to work together to bring Lifeline


service to eligible Floridians," said
PSC Chairman Lisa Polak Edgar.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable manner. The PSC ex-
ercises regulatory authority over
utilities in the areas of rate base/
economic regulation; competitive
market oversight; and monitoring
of safety, reliability, and service.


You should always give yourself credit for doing well


The world can be a pretty
harsh place. People can be criti-
cal or unappreciative of what
we do or how hard we try. Even
worse, however, is when we are
our own harshest critic.
Many people have trouble be-
lieving they've done well, even
when told so by others. They
dismiss such compliments, feel-
ing like a failure or knowing they
could have done better. The prob-
lem is that such an overly critical
- attitude makes it difficult to. find
the pleasure and joy in your life
and accomplishments. Coun-
selors refer to this as "minimiz-
ing the positive" or "telescopic

the wrong end of the telescope,
it makes your accomplishments
look smaller, rather than magni-
fying them. It can be a difficult
problem, but one that can be
solved. A starting point to break
that cycle of negative thinking is


simply to remind yourself of your
positive strengths.
One helpful exercise is to take
a piece of paper and make a list
of five things you know you do
right. They don't have to be things
you do perfectly, just ones you do
well. Your list might include, "I
work hard to be a good mother
(or father)." Or "I care about my
friends and try to help them when
help is needed." If you're cur-
rently overly critical of yourself,
it might seem difficult to find five
items for your list. But take your
time and think about those things
you care about and try to do well.
If you come up with more than


five items, write them all down.
This is a private list, one meant
to help you appreciate "you."
Put your completed list in your
wallet or purse. Then, over the
next couple of weeks, whenever
someone compliments you and
you find yourself thinking the
praise wasn't deserved, pull out
your list. Rather than convincing
yourself you really didn't do well,
look at those things where you
know you succeed; and remind
yourself that you actually are a
person deserving of praise and
compliments. You might even
want to add the latest compli-
ment to your list.

A child plants a child's garden ijt


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Once upon a time, there was a
little girl who lived in a little town
with her mommy and daddy.
One fall when the little girl was
about three years old, she saw her
mommy digging holes in front
of the bushes beside the house.
She watched as she walked over
to see. After her mommy dug the
hole, she dropped a funny-look-
ing little round-ish brown thing
into the hole, then covered it with
soil and moved on to the next
one. There was a brown bag on
the lawn and she had taken the
brown thing out of it.
"What are you doing, Mom-
my?" the little girl asked.
"I'm planting flower bulbs,"
her mommy answered.
"But they're dead and you cov-
ered them all up," she protested.
"Oh, Sweetie," said her mom-
my, "these are bulbs and in the
spring they will push up with
bright, green leaves. Then in a
little while, they will bloom with
wonderful yellow flowers."
"Oh!" said the little girl.
Several weeks later, the family
drove to visit the little girl's aunt
who lived in a nearby town. As
they drove along the windey coun-
try roads, the little girl watched
out the window. They passed a
large cemetery near a church.
"What is that with all the stones
sitting up?" the little girl asked.
"That's a cemetery, honey," her
daddy responded. "When people


Backyard


Barnyard
die, their families bury them in
the cemetery and put a big stone
up with the person's name, birth-
day, and the day they died on the
stone so they'll always remember
them.
The little girl said nothing for a
long time.
"In the spring, then what, Dad-
dy?" she asked.
The next May, when it was
the little girl's birthday, her god-
parents gave her a basket of little
plants to plant for her very own
garden. Daddy helped. He cut out
the grass with a shovel in a circle.
Then he dug down and turned
over the soil. The two of them
raked it smooth. They took two
trowels and dig holes. Then they
tucked in each plant and poured
water in with it from the metal
watering can that had a sprayer
spout, just like the shower in their
bathroom. When the water had
soaked in, they gently pushed dirt
in around the plant and patted it
down firm.
"Plants get their food from the
dirt they grow in," said Daddy. "So
we push it in so the plant doesn't
get hungry."
The little girl liked that idea.
She did not like to be too hungry.
There were pink petunias,
white sweet alyssum, little bright
blue Towers Daddy said was blue
daze and some bright yellow

Hunting and fishing fees change


Beginning Oct. 1, a new fee
schedule went into effect for all New Fees
recreational licenses issued by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con- Te of
servation Commission (FWC). Type of License


During its 2007 session, the
Florida Legislature passed a bill
to increase the fees for all recre-
ational saltwater and freshwa-
ter fishing and hunting licenses.
Hunting license fees were last
increased in 1979 and fishing li-
cense fees in 1989.
Bob Wattendorf, who heads
S up marketing in the FWC's Di-
vision of Freshwater Fisheries
Management, said, "When fees
for fishing licenses were last in-
creased, in 1989, gasoline cost
89 cents a gallon. But even with
the newr. fee increases, the cost
of hunting afrl fishing in Flohrida
falls below the median costs for
the other 49 states. Also the per-
centage of increase is well below
the rise in the cost of living seen
since 1989."
All the fees from these licenses
go back into conserving fish and
wildlife resources and benefit an-
glers and hunters.
The increased revenue, ex-
pected to total $10 million an-
nually within four years, will not
create new programs, but will
offset a predicted $12.5-million
deficit by 2010, said Sandra Wil-
son, director of finance and bud-
get at FWC. In addition to issuing
the licenses, FWC is charged with
directly conserving fish and wild-
life resources, and it creates and
enforces rules and regulations re-
garding hunting and fishing in the
state as well as promoting boat-
ing safety and access.
Florida remains the number-
one fishing destination in the
United States, according to the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's
2006 national survey. In addition,
Florida ranks number-one in the
nation for its $11 billion generat-
ed annually through hunting, fish-
ing and wildlife-viewing activities
throughout the state.
FWC presented its findings to
the Legislature earlier this year.
The projected deficit would leave
revenue streams for marine fish-
eries, freshwater fisheries and

hunting in jeopardy. In addition,
programs already in place, such
as those for panthers, manatees
and other imperiled species,
would need funding to keep pace
with increased costs.
FWC hired Southwick Associ-
ates, a private- firm specializing
in fish-and-wildlife economics,
to determine the impact from an
increase in fees.
"The optimal price for each
sport fishing and hunting license
issued was scientifically deter-
mined," Mr. Wattendorf said.
"Consideration for the increase
included the effect on angling and
hunting participation, customer
satisfaction, tourism and public
support for conservation."
However, the new fees were
kept to the minimum necessary
to offset the projected deficit,
rather than at a level that would
maximize revenue. Compared to
the price of movies, golf, bowling
and other forms of recreation,
fishing and hunting fees remain
very affordable, especially when
viewed as an unlimited, year-
round privilege, Mr. Wattendorf
said.
FWC also carefully consid-
ered the impact on federal aid
for sport fishing and wildlife res-
toration, which comes to Florida

based on the certified number of
hunting and fishing license hold-
ers and size of the state. Further
research consisted of consulting
focus groups and surveying in-
dividual hunters and fishermen
across Florida. With all of these
findings before them, legislators
voted to increase the fees, begin-
ning Oct. 1. As a result, programs
in danger of losing funding, such
as freshwater hatcheries, law en-
forcement patrols and saltwater
fisheries stock assessments, will
be able to continue at current lev-
els of service.
"It will allow our habitat resto-
ration, fish stocking, law enforce-
ment and outreach programs
to continue without cuts," Wat-
tendorf said. "We can't guaran-
tee that some things won't be
trimmed in the future, but the
expectation is the license fee in-
creases will prevent us from go-
ing backwards."
Recreational licenses may be
purchased online at MyFWC.com,
or by calling 1-888-FISH FLORIDA
(347-4356) or 1-888-HUNT FLORI-
DA (486-8356), or from numerous
sporting goods retailers and at tax
collectors' offices. If licenses are
not purchased at tax collectors'
offices, additional processing fees
will be applied.

marigolds.
.When they were done, there
was still some space along one
edge.
"Well," said Daddy, "should
we just leave that as it is?"
The little girl frowned.
"No. I'd like to plant some
strawberries, like those in your
garden. Can I please have a few,
what did you call those little ones
at the end of the long stems that
come from the plants, 'runners"
"Why, sure." said her Daddy.
So they went over and together,
cut enough of the new runner
plants to fill the empty spot.
They looked.
"Now, it's a real garden," they
both said. And laughed.
So you see, a child's garden
is very simple. The plants men-
tioned grow well and quickly
without too much care. Sunflow-
ers are wonderful for really little
children. They sprout in days, not
weeks. (Good for short attention
spans.) Then they grow so big
and tall and they make sunflower
seed that your child can feed to
the birds. Seed that "I grew it my-
self!"
Easy and quick to sprout and
grow are radishes and lettuce.
Gourds and pumpkins take longer
but you can make jack-o-lanterns
from the pumpkins and dry the
gourds, then paint them for deco-
rations or cut a round hole on one
side for a bird house.
The next best thing for child to
grow is whatever food or fruit he
loves. (If it will grow here!)

County. They are enlisted in the buddy program aboard the
USS Gettysburg and work as boatswain's mates. They are
deployed in the Arabian Gulf.

driver to roll down the window.
The driver opened his door and
the deputy asked if the window
worked. The driver confirmed it
worked and then rolled it down.
Dep. Sheriff Enderle used a tint
meter to test the driver's window
and it confirmed that the tint was
in violation of Florida law. He
noticed that the passenger was
not wearing a seat belt and both
men were asked for their drivers
licenses. The driver was identified
as Terrence Rollins, 21, of Miami;
and the passenger was identified
as Remy Washington, 23 of Mi-
ami.
The deputy reports that Ter-
rence Rollins stated the car be-
longed to his cousin's girlfriend,


and he and his passenger were
on their way to Fort Myers to meet
some girls that the passenger met
on MySpace, a social network on
the Internet.
When Remy Washington,
the passenger, was questioned
he stated that they were coming
from Miami and he had no idea
where they were headed, and
that he was just riding along with
Rollins.
According to the arrest re-
port, Terrence Rollins consented
to a vehicle search whereby a
package was found containing
two vacuum sealed plastic bags
wrapped in duct tape. Glades
County Sheriff's deputies ana-
lyzed the contents with a field'test
kit which showed positive results
for cocaine.
Both Rollins and Washington
were booked at the county jail,


and the vehicle was taken to the
sheriff's office in order to conduct
a more thorough search. Accord-
ing to Deputy Sheriff Enderle's
report, a hidden compartment
was found in the space where the
passenger airbags should have
been located, and its trap door
was found to be activated by an
electronic switch on the driver's
floorboard.
The seized cocaine was
weighed by the sheriff's office
and resulted in a weight of 1,178.3
grams which is roughly compa-
rable to the size of a large can of
coffee, according to officials.
Terrence Rollins and Remy
Washington were charged in con-
nection with trafficking cocaine.
The judge set a bond of $900,000
for the driver, and $900,000 for
the passenger.

stressful part of our job is the sleep
factor. I mean we stand watch all
through the night and then we are
expected to perform at our best
when called upon.
Dilangin Young: The most
stressful thing about this job is
being away from my wife and
family for long periods of time.
Question: What is the best
thing about being on this ship or
serving in the Navy?
Travis Page: The coolest


thing about being on this ship is
we are always visiting other coun-
tries and the feeling we get when
we do something that protects
America's freedom.
Dilangin Young: I would
have to say the coolest thing
about being in the Navy is being
able to see new places and being
around a lot of people that are
from all different places in the
world.

West Glades kids celebrate Freedom Week


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
Students of West Glades
School recently kicked off Cel-
+ ebrate Freedom Week by ailnd-
in ah assembly hosted by Mrs.
Marchal's seventh grade class.
The assembly began with the
color guard from the American
Legion Post Number 130 present-
ing the flag of the United States
of America and the Florida State
flag in a highly colorful military
ceremony.
Following the presentation of
the colors, Mr. Dean Paul's Band
played our national anthem, the
Star Spangled Banner and the
student body sang as the band
played.
Various students of. Mrs.
Marchal's class explained the de-
tails of a community project they
had started to send "Treats to
Troops." The students also wrote
and performed a skit that demon-
strated how important receiving
letters and packages from home
is to those serving in the military
overseas.
In addition, the class members
placed jugs, artistically decorated
with patriotic deigns, in each
classroom to collect "Pennies
for Packages." As announced,
the class that collects the most
money will celebrate with a pizza
party.


ouDmilteu pnotos
The students had a great time performing for the audience.
Left to right: Crystal Gaskin, Kendall Weatherford, Merary
Trevino, Kelsey Cowin, Emily Kostoff, Mr. Dean Paul


Students diligently researched
the types of items that could be
sent to service members over-
seas. These items will be pur-
chased with the funds collected
from the "Pennies for Packages"
jugs.
The students are hoping
enough funds will be contributed
to allow the purchase of special
items to fill the "Care Packages"
that will lift the spirits of our ser-
vice men and women as well as
reminding them of home, how

much they are missed and how
much they are loved and appreci-
ated.
At the conclusion of this spe-
cial assembly, Avery Alimo read
her poem entitled "What Free-
dom Means to Me."
"This assembly presentation
was a great way for the students
to show their own patriotism by
reaching out across the world
to those who are fighting for the
freedom of all of us," Mrs. Mar-
shall said.

they could not positively
identify these golden treasures
of Glades County. The Gregorys
said, "They are of the sunflower
family but that's the most we can
definitely determine. Most of the
time, a plant about which there
is some question can be identi-
fied by examining the entire root
system. However, we are still in
doubt about the absolute identi-
fication of this plant."
And so they have become
commonly known throughout
the region as "Lakeport Daisies"
or Florida sunflowers that come
into full flower the latter part of
September and into mid-October'
This year, however, we've not
seen a sign of any of them whict1
we can only attribute to the driest
"rainy" season in many a year.
The pictures taken that first
year that we saw them have been
a pure treasure to all who have.
seen them.
But we can still hope that may-,
be some will appear later than
usual this year.

Why church?



'I can do it alone'


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I've been invited from time to
time to join other churches. My
question is response is "What do
you have to offer?" Usually, I don't
really get any answer. When any
answer is forthcoming, I have al.
ways been able to reply that noth-
ing will be added to what I already
have. That is because I am part of
an "institution" a church.
The Church provides; keeps
-- me up-to-date; gives answers
when I search for them, keeps me
from going off on tangents or be-
ing side-tracked.
In later years, the word "in-
stitution" has come to have bad
connotations; as someone put it
"Nobody wants to live in an insti-
tution!" (That comment is often
reserved for the "institution of
marriage" but people keep going
back to it.) What then does "insti-
tutional religion" offer? It is simply
that we don't have to "re-invent
the wheel" each time we want
to worship, seek an answer, look
for guidance, search for values or
grow in faith. The institution is the
repository of the wisdom of the
ages; what has been learned and
what has been given to us. It is
through the process of research-
ing (or "re-searching") what has
been handed down to us that we
grow, see new applications of old
truths, come to new understand-
ings of what God is doing in His
world today and learn to correct
the errors of the past and build for
the future. This is no solitary job.
We had someone at one of
our Bible Study groups who com-
mented as we gathered "I just
wouldn't have come to this (in-
sight) by reading the Bible alone."
She was right. It is in our joint work
together that special illuminations
come. The institutional religion
of the Lord's day had its' history
and tradition; Jesus said, "Do not
think that I have come to abolish
the law or the prophets, I have not
come to abolish them but to fulfill
them (Matthew 5:17)." He did not
tell people to go off in isolation
and study on their own, or pray by
themselves, but Jesus was to be

the founder of a "Church." (Mat-
thew 16:18 "On this rock I will
build my Church...") His disciples
received their power and commis-
sion "when they were all together
in one place..(Acts 2:1)" and the
followers "devoted themselves
to the apostle's fellowship (Acts
2:42)." In other words, they didn't
do any of it alone; the "fellowship-
Church-institution" was a source
of strength. Even through their
travels and isolation, they kept in
touch and drew from the strength
of their fellowship.
When the early Christians had
controversies, they would gather
in counsels and seek their answers
together; work and pray together,
discern what the Lord was saying
to them as His family and body.
History shows that we do our best
as a part of a community-fellow-
ship-body-group-"institution." It is
through the work of the body that
new life comes; it keeps us from
just being a "society for the pres-
ervation of the ideals of the dead
rabbi!" It is in the body that real life
resides. Just as our human bodies
require nourishment to continue
to live, and the body cannot feed
on itself for any length of time,
neither can the spiritual body. Our
spiritual bodies require nourish-
ment and refreshment too. When
I hear someone say "I can do it
myself" I don't know what they do
to keep from getting all wrapped
up in their own ideas or how they
keep growing and how they ben-
efit from all that God has revealed'
to His people over all of the ages.
Not too long ago, some of our
sciences gave way from being
"specialized" to taking a holistic
approach" to bring advances. It
is through collaboration, sharing,
seeing how things and systems
work together that the greatest
advances are made. It's that way
with faith too. In spite of our love
to say "I can do it by myself," we
rely on others. That's all right the
Lord designed it that way. It works'
the whole is greater than the
sum of the parts; the fellowship is
greater than all of the disconnect-
ed individuals, the Church has a
special place for each of us.
An 'institution?' Yes, in many
ways and thanks be to God for it.

God, where will I be in eternity?


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Every person's greatest con-
cern is the final destiny of the
soul. Everyday problems demand
attention, but these fade into insig-
nificance when we ask ourselves,
"Where will I be in eternity?"
There are two parts to this an-
swer: God's part and man's part.
God has already done His part by
sending Christ into the world, and
by giving us the New Testament.
Christ came to save sinners (I
Tim. 1:15). This is what Christian-
ity is all about. It is for the salva-
tion of your soul. "What shall it,
profit a man, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his own
soul?" (Mark 8:36).
Man does have a part in his
salvation, for though Christ died
for all, only those who obey Him
will be saved (Hebrews 5:9). Your


response to the commands of
Christ in the New Testament is
your part in salvation. Faith comes
by hearing the word of God (Ro-
mans 10:17).
Faith will cause you to accept
Christ as the Son of God (John
8:24). Faith in Christ will cause
you to repent of your sins (Acts
17:30). Faith in Christ will cause
you to confess Him before men
(Matthew 10:32-33). Faith in
Christ will cause you to immersed
in water (baptized) for the remis-
sion of your sins (Mark 16:15-16,
Acts 2:38). A continuing faith in
Christ will cause you to live a life
that pleases God in all things (Acts
2:42; II Cor. 5:9).
The Lord adds to the Church
those who obey the gospel (Acts
2:47). You cannot join the Church
revealed in the Bible; the Lord can
only add you. The logical question


Successful fair
Students and their families really enjoyed the recent Book
Fair event at Central Elementary. Thank you to Miss Bald-
win, Mrs. Gary and all of the staff, parents and volunteers
who worked hard to make this event a great success.


to ask next would be, "Are you a
member of the church you can
read about in the bible?"
Why not be "just a Christian?"
In the multiplicity of religions,
some people conclude that none
are right and settle down in leth-
argy. Others, weary of the prob-
lems, settle for some "infallible"
or popular church or man. Still
others say, "I'm going to shop
around if and when I find the
right one, I'll make a move." Of
course, no one would ever live
long enough to examine carefully
the hundreds of cults which ex-
ist.
May we present a better,
more direct way? The true an-
swer to life's greatest questions is
summed up in one word, CHRIST.
A Christian is one who belongs to
Christ. The "lan" at the end of the
w6rd signifies "belonging to", as


an American belongs to America.
Why not be "just a Christian"?
Obedience to God's Word will
make you a Christian, nothing
more or less.
A Christian has access to all
truth. Any truth which a Christian
finds he may accept and pro-
claim. He does not need to sift
through the chaff of men's theo-
ries. In Christ he has all he needs.
It is his privilege to search the rich
mine of truth. Christ Jesus, "in
whom are hid ALL the treasures
of wisdom and knowledge" (Co-
lossians 2:3).
By the same token, a Christian
does not say, "I am right", but
he says "Christ is right, the Bible
is right." He has nothing to "har-
monize" or explain away, no hu-
man creed to defend, no "axe to
grind". His obedience to the truth
has made him free (John 8:32)!


Students and their families all enjoyed the recent Central El-
ementary Book Fair. Thank you to Miss Baldwin, Mrs. Gary,
and all of the staff, parents, and volunteers who worked
help helped to make this event a great success.

put Humpty together again.
Have you ever had a Humpty
Dumpty experience? Most of
us have. Al-
most everyone '":
knows what
it feels like
to have our
dreams, our '
lives, our goals, .
our health, : .
our family, our
friendships, or John
even our very Hicks
being shattered
beyond repair. All of the king's
horses and all of the king's men
couldn't put the broken pieces
together again.
Our faith tells us that God
can fix anything. He is the super
God with super glue. God, who
is in the broken bread, who of-
fers himself up to be broken on
a cross, throws nothing away.
God abandons no one and can
do what all the king's horses and
all the king's men could never
do put Humpty Dumpty back
together again.
The first Sunday in October
is World Communion Sunday.
Throughout the world, churches
of all denominations, in all na-
tions, and in many languages,
will celebrate the Lord's Sup-
per. It could not have come at
a better time. We need this time
together to remember that God
so loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son. He did
this not only for you and me,
but for our neighbors next door,
our neighbors across the street
and our neighbors around the


world.
The bread on the altar is a
reminder that God walked with
us, that God was broken with
us and that God weeps with us.
When we come to the table and
break the bread, it is to remem-
ber that we are never alone in
our trials, in our tribulations, in
our temptations.
I don't know about you, but
I've had a rough couple of weeks
and I need to come to the Lord's
table. I need to remember that
God knows me and loves me
anyway. I need to remember
that God has experienced all of
my human suffering and all of
my human fear. I need to taste
the bread and smell the juice and
let them remind me that God sat
with disciples like you and me
and tried to tell them that even
though the night might seem
long, morning would come. I
need to hear the words again;
remember Me, remember my
promises, remember My love.
This meal of broken bread
which we celebrate is a remem-
brance of a meal long ago, but
it is also a call, an invitation,
a summons to bring our very
present troubles and give them
to God. We can bring our bro-
kenness to this table and leave
it here, and God will lovingly
receive and fix it. He will put all
of the pieces back together and
restore us. God makes the bro-
ken whole. That's why I need to
come to the table. It's why you
need to come as well. It is here
for all. It is not a matter of being
worthy, for all have sinned and
fallen short of the glory of God.
It's a matter of being willing to
come and receive what is freely
offered: A body broken for us,
blood shed for us, love poured
out for us. These are what will
make us whole again.

tage and got hammered
by a score of 56-0. It was
the most points allowed
and the worst loss in Ti-
ger records dating back
to 1951. The loss left
Clewiston winless in five
starts and you have to go
-*ac : 1t :, 1 'r,. to q nd a Ti-
ger squad .% ith a similar
start.
The showing was
a big letdown for the
Tigers and their fans.
Coming off a respect-
able showing against
powerhouse Glades
Central and facing a
Class 1A opponent in
the Stallions, the Tigers
were never in the con-
test. Clewiston was se-
riously handicapped by
the loss of four starters
-- Delvin Hughes, Colin
Ricketts, Adam Trevino
and Ryan Gutshall -- and
then lost Zack Waddell
early in the first period.
Hughes was serving the
second of his two-game
suspension by the Flori-
da High School Athletic
Association for having
been ejected from the
Glades Day game. The
others were injured in
the Glades Central game
with Gutshall, the Tigers
most consistent offen-
sive lineman this year,
likely out for the year due
to a knee injury. Waddell
suffered a shoulder inju-
ry and will probably be
out of action for at least
a week, pending a more
complete medical evalu-
ation.
Offensively, the Ti-
gers managed only 83
yards rushing on 30
snaps, with most of
that coming in the final
quarter under a run-
ning clock and against
Stallion substitutes. The
Tigers' passing attack
was worse, coming up
with only seven yards
on one completion on
nine attempts. Junior
tailback Darris Hughes,
without much block-
ing managed to gain 76
hard-earned yards on 18
carries. He also gained
104 yards on 5 kickoff
returns.
Defensively, line,
backer Alex Rubio had
11 tackles and end Wil-


lie Armstrong, double
teamed most of the
night, came up with 8
tackles.
The Stallions im-
proved their record to 3-
1 and moved the ball at
will all night against the
cOjt mnrniied Clegiston
deftense Quartback
Justin Feagin rushed for
three touchdowns and
passed for two. more
to senior flanker Domi-
nique Battle. Battle also
picked off an errant pass
from Tiger quarterback
Isandro Marquez and
returned it 55 yards for
another score.
"We were outgunned
and outmatched all
night long," said Tigers
coach Larry Antonacci.
"Our team needs to find
their hearts for football.
We played tonight with
no heart and no desire.
You can't win football
games with five or six
kids playing and the rest
just along for the ride."
Clewiston begins its
divisional competition
this week as they host
the Cardinal Newman
Crusaders. The Tigers
are really in need of a
win and the Crusaders
enter the game with
a 2-2 record, but both
of their victories came
against teams with no
wins.
