'Find a cure
In the U.S., a woman has a 1 in 8 risk of
developing breast cancer in her lifetime.
That is 1 out of 8 mothers, daughters,
sisters, aunts, neighbors, co-workers, com-
munity members.


When breast cancer is detected early,
before it spreads beyond the breast, the
five-year survival rate is 98%.
Rally for a Cure is a grassroots program
that works to spread awareness about
breast health and breast cancer in support
of Susan G. Komen for the Cure.
The mission is to empower people to join
the fight against breast cancer by educating


their friends, family and community on the
importance of early detection through an
activity they are passionate about.
The commitment to awareness as the
first step in eliminating breast cancer has
reached over 1.5 million people since the
start in 1996.
The focus is always education, aware-
ness and early detection.


The Clewiston Ladies Golf Association is
hosting a Rally for a Cure Coed Golf Tourna-
ment on March 6.
This event is not just for golfers. Please
call 239-564-5765 or visit the Clewiston Golf
Club or Chamber of Commerce to learn
about ways that you may get involved.

With nearly 10% of Florida's youth hav-
ing used smokeless tobacco products in the
past month, Robacco Free Florida encour-
ages our partners to raise awareness of the
dangers of smokeless tobacco, by participat-
ing in "Through With Chew Week," Feb. 14
through Feb. 20.
Even though smokeless tobacco use can
lead to nicotine addiction and dependence,
many youth are unaware of these dangerous
consequences. Many believe that "smoke-
less" means harmless, but in fact, it contains
28 cancer-causing agents that could lead to
oral cancer and gurn disease. According to
the Center for Disease Control, oral cancer
is the sixth-leading cancer in males and one
of the most difficult types of cancer to diag-
nose, treat and cure.
You can take the plunge in 2010 and
corniit to quit smokeless tobacco. Join the
Great American Spit Out on February 18 and


to receive FREE Nicotine Replacement Ther-
apy in the form of patches, gurn or lozenges.
If you have any questions or if you would
like to register for the class please contact
Valarie Jarnes or Nora Duley-Maldonado at
674-4041 ext. 128.
Recently, Robacco Free Florida launched
a new website dedicated to smokeless to-
bacco. This site, www.SrnokelessKills. corn'
is designed to expose the dangers of smoke-
less tobacco with hard-hitting statistics and
graphic images.
Robacco Free Florida recognizes that
tobacco dependency is an addiction and
provides tobacco users with tools for ern-
powerrnent, which are necessary for long-
terrn success. Be free today and contact the
Florida Quitline at 1.877.U.CAN.NOW or
floridaquitline.corn for free counseling and
nicotine replacement therapies.

Clewiston Museum
After the Battle of Okeechobee, the Semi-
noles retreated into the dark recesses of the
cypress swamps that bordered the Loxa-
hatchee River. The Seminoles set up camps
and probably thought their new havens
were safe from encroaching soldiers, but
they were wrong. A naval officer named Lt.
Powell was leading a "Search and Destroy"
expedition into the Everglades and chanced
upon one of their trails.
Lt. Powell's mixed force of seamen and
soldiers captured a Seminole woman, while
following the trail and forced her to lead
them to her people'lsthi den camps. Wen

me it 1cmsswi mi lines an eadv n ed t -
ward the Seminole encampment.
On January, 15, 1838, a ragged exchange
of fire soon turned into a heated engage-
ment as the sharp report of cracking rifles
and blasting muskets echoed throughout the

gyrs sswamps.b nhonce eager advanc-
as more and more shadowy figures darted
from cypress to cypress, firing their deadly
messengers of death.

had oa e stoo dreesxol inn radn as isw ra
now starting to succumb to the inland storm
that brewed ominously around them. Soon
fear began to overpower the sanity of many
as an unseen but ever advancing enemy
filled the air with deadly lead and hideous
war-whoops.
This chaos was heightened by the cries
of wounded and dying men, which spread
more mayhem among the already distraught
sailors. Fear finally conquered many of the
sailors and turned their disciplined ranks
into panic-stricken rabbles. Crazed men fled
through the swamps for the safety of their
boats, while triumphing Seminoles raced
behind them like coursing hounds, hungry
for the kill.
It was only the disciplined actions of Lt.
Powell and his rearguard Army regulars that
saved the expedition from total annihilation.
Powell stood his ground and restored some
order among the sailors, while his Army
regulars firmly held their ground. A rabble
of sailors and disciplined soldiers slowly
retreated to the safety of their boats and es-
caped.
Prior to Lt. Powell's engagement, General
Jesup had given orders to the West Army
unit, which was patrolling the St. Johns Riv-
er, to proceed south. It was General Jesup's
belief that most Seminoles had fled south to
escape his probing armies. Colonel Taylor's

This post was important because it complet-
ed a line of post running from Tampa Bay to
Fort Pierce. General Jesup now believed he
had the Seminoles trapped because another
Army unit under the command of Colonel
Smith was moving east from the western


shores of Lake Okeechobee.
Jesup started marching the West Army
unit southward with hopes he could engage
the Seminoles that Lt. Powell had encoun-
tered along the Loxahatchee River. Howev-
er, he met an obstacle in route, the St. Lucie
River. The West Army unit couldn't cross be-
cause of their heavy baggage.
Jesup was forced to alter course and
move inland, until the West Army unit could
circle around the St. Lucie River. Heavy artil-
lery and cumbersome wagons stuck in the
muddy swamps, while mules and men la-
boriously inched them slowly around the St.
Lucie River
Endless miles of Sawgrass tore the legs
of Calvary horses so much that corn sacks
were wrapped around the horses' legs to
keep them from going lame. Men fared no
better as the sharp edges of the Sawgrass
shredded both their clothes and shoes.
The column of weary men finally circled
the St. Lucie and began moving eastward to-
ward the Loxahatchee River. On January 24,
1838, the column stopped moving because
outs had reported Seminoles in a nearby

General Jesup immediately started pre-
paring the tired column of men for battle,
while Seminoles waited patiently in a ham-
mock that rose above the surrounding
swamp waters. The Seminoles held the
strategically higher ground, so the soldiers
would be forced to wade across the swamp
waters in full view.
The swamp waters were full of cypress
stumps and up to the horse's girths, hence
rendering them useless. Riders were forced
to dismount and join the foot soldiers, who
would charge across the wide, liquid kill-
ing field that led to the hammock. General
Jesup arranged his cannons on the left and
right flanks of the hammock and then gave
the command to attack.
Cannon fire and Congreve rockets hissed
into the Seminole's green fortress, while sol-
diers exposed themselves to deadly enemy
fire, as they slowly advanced in shoulder
deep water. Intense fire from the hammock
sent white spouts of water erupting around
the advancing men like hail stones. The
withering fire began to slow the soldiers ad-
vance and proved a deterrent for many, who
started retreating.
General Jesup noted the hesitancy and
rode up toward the front lines. He dis-
mounted and ordered the men behind him
to follow. He ran several steps and looked
back to see if the tro ps were following As
he glanced around, a Seminole bullet struck
and shattered his glasses, while cutting his
cheek open. Jesup calmly picked up the
glass frames and waved his men on.
The Seminoles were overran by sheer
numbers and fled into the Everglades. Gen-
eral Jesup claimed the engagement as a vic-
tory. The Battle of Loxahatchee River cost
General Jesup seven dead and 31 wounded.


The U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) released its February orange crop
forecast for the 2009-2010 season, reduc-
ing its earlier estimate by 6 million boxes
to 129 million boxes.
"We are definitely seeing the effects of
the prolonged freeze we experienced in
January," said Michael W. Sparks, execu-
tive VP/CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual. "As
a whole the industry came through in de-
cent shape; we did have frozen fruit and
leaf damage across most of the growing
regions and this report reflects that."
Visit www.nass. usda. gov/Statistics_
by State/Flori da/Publicati ons/Citrus/cpfp.
htm for the complete USDA estimate. The
USDA makes its initial forecast in October
and then revises it monthly until the end of
the season in July.
The USDA decreased its grapefruit esti-
mate from 19.5 million boxes to 18.8 mil-


lion. The forecast for early and midseason
varieties in Florida shrunk by 3 million to
66 million while the projection for Valen-
cias also decreased by 3 million boxes to
63 million boxes this season. For Florida
specialty fruit, the USDA's tangelo estimate
remained at 900,000 boxes, however the
tangerine forecast was reduced by 700,000
boxes to 4 million. The yield for from fro-
zen concentrated orange juice (FCOJ) is
expected to be 1.56 gallons per 90-pound
box, down from 1.60.
The Florida citrus industry creates a $9
billion annual economic impact, employ-
ing nearly 76,000 people, and covering
more than 576,000 acres. Founded in 1948
and currently representing nearly 8,000
grower members, Flonida Citrus Mutual is
the state's largest citrus grower organiza-
tion. For more information, visit www.fl-

Leadership frornthe Hendry and Glades
County Health Departments attended the
Man 11p-Town Hall which was held on Sat-
urday, January 30, 2010 at the Gulf Coast
Medical Center in Fort Myers. This meet-
ing with state and local leaders gave an
in-depth look at HIV disease and rnen's
healthcare in general and how it can impact
Southwest Florida. The "Man 11p" -Town
Hall Meeting enables leaders in the con-
Inunities to becorne involved and to stirnu-
late the development and irnplernentation
of cornrunity action plans for the educa-
tion and prevention of HIV/AIDS. Over 75
people from the counties of Hendry, Lee
and Charlotte attended this very important
event and the feedback was very positive.
Robert Bobo, Program Manager, De-
partrnent of Health HIV Hendry County
was the facilitator of the event and other
local leaders that attended included: Pat
Dobbins, Administrator and Health Officer
for the Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments and LaSheba Travis, Pro-
grarn Manager, Hendry and Glades County
Health Department Healthy Start, Teen
Health and Employee Health. Additionally,
Dr. Jeffrey Beal, Medical Director of HIV/
AIDS, Tallahassee (formerly of the Hendry
County Health Department) was one of the
key speakers at the event.
Several follow up meetings to focus on
planning and prevention are being devel-


oped. These future meetings will be cen-
tered on faith-based organizations, corn-
Inunity-based organizations, marketing/
entrepreneur, and fraternity/sorarity group
initiatives for HIV education and preven-
tion. Once a schedule has been decided,
one of these meetings will be held in Hen-
dry County.
The most important preventative rnea-
sure we can take is to get tested and know
your HIV status. This knowledge helps
people to protect themselves and their part-
ners and helps those infected to seek care
and treatment. The Florida Department of
Health and Bureau of HIV/AIDS released
a report "The Crisis of HIV/AIDS Arnong
Florida's Men". This report revealed that 72
percent of new HIV infections are among
adult men. It's time for men to "man up"
and take the responsibility for the conse-
quences of their sexual actions and other
risk behaviors. You can view the full re-
port on www.WeMakeTheChange.corn or
www.FloridaAIDS. org.
Educationisakeycomponentto fighting
this preventable disease. Now is the time
to educate yourselves, your families, and
your corniunities. We must not be afraid
to talk about this disease. The Florida HIV/
AIDS hotline (1-800-FLA-AIDS) provides
valuable HIV/AIDS-related information and
also provides HIV testing locations.

but added, "Chippie doesn't sing much anymore. He
just sits and stares."
It's not hard to see why. Being sucked up, dunked
down, and blown over would steal the song from the
best of us. One moment every thing is going well
and we have a song on our lips, then -"fa wumpa!
Something happens and we are sucked into a dark
abyss, dunked into the cold water of reality, and then
we are blown away with the hot air of shock, aggra-
vation, and frustration. The life that had been calm is
now blowing gale forces.
The reality is that storms come and they come
quickly. Sometimes they come hard. If you are not in
a storm today, chances are you know someone who
is. And somewhere in the midst of these storms, joy
vanishes and the song is lost. Chippie doesn't sing
much anymore. Neither do we.
When we find ourselves in the middle of one of
life's many storms or when we realize that we have
lost our song, let us remember that the same voice
that stilled the storm on the Sea of Galilee can still the
storm in our world, and the same voice that gave the
birds their song can restore our song as well.
Psalm 40:1-3 states it well: "He lifted me out of
the slimy pit, out of the mud and mire; He set my
feet on a rock and gave me a firm place to stand. He
put a new song in my mouth, a hymn of praise to our
God." What God did for him He will do for us.
In our walk this week, may God put a new song
in our mouth and a hymn of praise in our heart, and
may we stand firm on the solid Rock that is our sal-
vation.


1Maing a Difference
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist

Sometime ago INC. Magazine published an in-
terview with General H. Norman Schwarzkopf. His
performance as commander of the U. S. Forces in
the Gulf War captured the attention of the world. In
the article General Schwarzkopf revealed his leader-
ship prin iples .sThese principles appyato an r our

eoals areotlelarly understood that you can articulate
2. Give yourself a clear agenda. Every morning
write down the five most important things to accom-
plish that day and get those done.
3. Let people know where they stand. Relational
honesty is vital to success in life.
4. What's broken, fix now. Don't delay to tackle
problems. Problems that aren't dealt with create
Other problems.
5. No I I. ..II....1 the flagpole. Make sure all the
work you and your people are doing is essential to
theo gnatin
e. ress higionstandards. People do not generally
perform above your standards, as it's important to
expect a lot, of yourself and others.
7. Lay the concept out, but let your people ex-
ecute it. It is vital to enlist the cooperation and direct
the efforts of others toward the goal.
8. People come to work to succeed. Don't oper-
ate on the principle that if they aren't watched and
supervised, they'll bungle up the job.
9 Never lie, Ever. Integrity is essential.
10. When in charge, take command. Some lead-
ers who feel they don't have adequate information
put off deciding to do anything at all. The best policy
is to decide, monitor the results, and change course
if it's necessary. Be proactive.
11i. Do what's right. The truth of the matter is you
always know the right thing to do. The hard part is
doing it.
Everyone of these principles is found in the life
and action of Nehemiah. Practice these principles
and you will "make a difference!"

Lent; meaning, opportunity
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
With all of the recent bad weather across the
country, people are wondering "Where is II" ~
Even here in Florida, it has been colder than usual;
where is global warming when you need it!
In spite of it all, Springtime is coming" and we
can say with assurance "It will get warmer." Our
forefathers knew it would warm up; and that there
was a day coming that would mark new life. That
day was Easter! Time before Easter was time to get
ready for that big day. In the midst of all of the cold
and difficulties that came with winter; the days were
slowly getting longer.
This I ..I I. I...... ~ of days were signs of a subtle
source for optimism; each day was a little longer, a
little brighter, a little warmer. In the midst of all of the
darkness; there was "length" taking place; or more
simply -"Lent." This was the traditional time before
Easter when early Christians got ready for the day
when new life, eternal life was celebrated -Easter.
What is Lent? It is that forty day period before Easter
spent in preparing for the big day. As the Lord began
His earthly ministry spending forty days in the wilder-
ness (Matthew4:1-11, Mark 1:12, Luke 4:1-13); many
of the faithful take forty days before Easter as a time
of spiritual strengthening to get ready for the great
celebration of Easter.
For some, it is a time of dieting, for others it is
giving up something else, for still others it is a reso-
lution to take on something that might help others
-an extra work of charity or doing a good deed for
someone who needs it. The time is a time of wres-
tling with temptations and getting out of habits that
are keeping people from being a little further on the
road to God's kingdom. One person put it this way;
"I use this time to show that I am not a slave to ani-
mal passions or lesser things; I prove to myself that
I can overcome weaknesses or bad habits; I show
to God that I am 'a little lower than the angels (He-
brews 2:7, from Psalm 8:5)' and am worthy of that
special place He has made for me in creation." In the
long run, what do we have to offer to God? Not very

nuh fe ttas it all alreay Thrs somett ng we

He er onee a db ahile, there comes a moment
when I surprise myself. I did better at something
than I thought I was going to do, or I kept on going
and succeeded when I thought I was going to fall on
my face. I thank God for the blessing of it all; He's
given me a sign that I can do better than I thought
and maybe that's the "real me" after all. Lent? Taking
time to polish up the "real me" that God intended.


Chippie Doesn't Sing 1Much

A Hym0Y8
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It all be an when Mary decided to clean Chi -
pie's cage with the vacuum cleaner. Mary removed
the attachment from the end of the hose and stuck
it in the cage. The phone rang, Mary turned to pick
it up and had barely said "hello" when "fa wumpa!"
Chippie got sucked in.
Mary screamed, dropped the phone, turned off
the vacuum,... ... 1 ll.,i ~ i. .. ....1pulled Chippie out.
Chippie was somewhat dazed, but still alive. He was
also completely covered with dust. Worried about
what the dust might do to him, Mary ran to the bath-
room with the poor bird, turned on the faucet, and
held him under the running water. Then, realizing
Chippie was wet and starting to shiver, she did what
any concerned bird owner would do -she reached
for the hair dryer and gave him a blast of hot air.
Poor Chippie never knew what hit him. A few

GLADES -- Members of Tobacco Free
Partnership learned about the history of
the tobacco industry at the last meeting.
The partnership will continue to hear more
about this at the next meeting on Feb. 24 at
the Moore Haven High School library at 3
p.m.
Students of history may recall that Brit-
ain's Sir Walter Raleigh ventured to the new
world in order to develop colonies and a
trading company. Tobacco production and
is inip rtbto Eurp swasr n o rh 'ans

cash crop. Before the Civil War, cigars, pow-
dered snuff, and pipe tobacco were the most
popular forms of use.
According to antique collectors, cigarette
use increased after the Civil War, and four
hand-rolled cigarettes came in a paper pack.
The cardboard used to support the packag-
ing eventually was decorated with pictures
of men working at their vocations such as
barber, blacksmith, or sea captain. In a way,
these cards were like the first trading cards
collec ed by the aver ge cosunermebes

watched a video of the tobacco industry's
production and marketing techniques. They
learned about a machine that could make
70,000 cigarettes a day. It was invented about
1890, and the industry needed to figure out
a way to increase the demand for its prod-
uct. By World War I, cigarettes were a daily
ration for soldiers and seamen. Cigarettes
were distributed by the military, the YMCA
and the Salvation Army.
Old film footage from that time showed
nurses passing them out to soldiers. A slo-
gan for that time period was "It Gives Pep to
our Fighting Men."
Women became a marketing target by
the 1920's. Until then, it was unladylike to
smoke. A poster used by the Lucky Strike
company was designed to influence wom-
en who worried about their weight, and it


used the slogan "Reach for a Lucky instead
of a sweet."
By the 1930's the tobacco industry was a
well established agricultural crop and a foun-
dation for the economy of the southeastern
United States. Classic movies show actors as
sweethearts who blow cigarette smoke into
each others faces before they embrace.
Smoking became sophisticated by the
1940's. However, America's doctors began
to notice a rise in lung cancer cases. By 1952,
the Reader's Digest, a popular and well read
magazine, published an article on how to-
bacco use causes cancer.
Tobacco companies added a filter to
cigarettes in order give the illusion of a less
dangerous smoke. A popular slogan about
the taste of the filtered smoke was "Richly
rewarding, yet uncommonly smooth".
Menthol flavor was added to give the sen-
sation of coolness in the smoker's mouth
and lungs.
Tobacco Free Partnership will teach its
members more about tobacco marketing
and how it targets youth at future meetings.
At last month's meeting, a retail member of

phepartner ,r.I asdonn Grinr,ci spokaento the
on ary sc ool stu ents.
Mr. Griner is employed at a local conve-
nience store/gas station. He commented that
tobacco companies push for retail establish-
ments to advertise, and they offer incentives
to lower prices in order to attract custom-
ers. The Glades Health Department also
commented that a grocery store in LaBelle
had given out cigarette coupons to custom-
ers. Jason Griner also reported that after the
large tax was placed on cigarettes, the sale
of the product rose 30 percent at the retail
store where he works.
For more information about the next
meeting, call Angelica Pena at 863-946-
0707.

challenges. But sadly, our kids are
not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that
half of America s youth cannot locate
India or Iraq on a map, then we have
to wonder what they do know about
their world. That's why we created

County corniissioners approved Mr.
Jones' request to purchase five self-con-
tained-breathing-apparatus (SCBA). The
equipment had been used at a live burn
demonstration. The cost is $2,500 for each
unit which is reduced from the new price
of $5,000.

tion Association support manager, also at-
tended the county meeting of Feb. 9. She is

Inent Director for their support in organiz-
ing the Firewise program. Glades County
is close to becoming Florida's first Firewise
county. So far, seven of ten county corniu-
nities are Firewise.
NFPA's program encourages local solu-
tions for wildfire safety by involving horne-
owners, local leaders, planners, developers,
firefighters and others in the effort to protect
people and property from the risk of wild-
fires. Firewise Corniunities is co-sponsored
by the 11SDA Forest Service, US Department
of the Interior and the National Association
of State Foresters.
Michele Steinberg mentioned Firewise
was begun in 1985 after 600 hornes in Flor-
ida and California were destroyed, with 400
of then lost in one day. Thanks went to Jirn-
my and Diane Cianfrani, Muse Cornrunity
Association; Angie Snow, emergency man-
agernent director; Tosha Reiss, emergency
inangernent assistant; Bob Jones, public
