Railroad comes to Clewiston


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Editor's note: The following
story comes from an article
which appeared in the Miami
Herald, Sept. 11, 1921. A copy of
the paper is kept at the Clewis-
ton Historical Museum. Some
detail has been lost of the
years, and is noted.
On Labor Day, September 7,
1921 a grand celebration bar-
beque was held in Clewiston. It
attracted politicians, dignitaries
and crowds of local people for
at last, it would be possible to
ship produce and other goods
directly into Clewiston.
"Railroad celebration at
Clewiston emphasizes need of
transportation to develop Ever-
glades." This was the headline
on page six of the Miami Herald
on Sunday, September 11,1921.
It was the year Okeechobee City
turned four years old and
booming Moore Haven was a
ripe old seven.

The Florida East Coast Rail-
road had come to Okeechobee
in 1914, but few roads existed in
the 'Glades. Steamboats run-
ning up the New River Canal
from Fort Lauderdale or across
the Caloosahatchee from Fort
Myers were still a main source
of commerce and transporta-
tion. The opening of this water-
way across Florida in April of
1912 was the cause for much
celebration as well.
The fertile Everglades were
the farmer's new paradise.


the Lake Okeechobee and
upper Everglades section has
been significantly accentuated
in the past week by the splendid.
celebration at Clewiston of
Labor Day of the completion of
the Moore Haven and Clewiston
Railway, a strip of 14 miles of
railroad recently built from
Moore haven to Clewiston, a
point formerly known as Sand
Point, on the south shore of
Lake Okeechobee and affording
exceptional advantages for
dockage and a lake terminal.
This new railroad was built by
Captain J.J. O'Brien and Mrs.
O'Brien of Moore Haven and Mr.
A.C. Clewis, president of the
Exchange National Bank of
Tampa. Through this small strip
of railroad, it itself of compara-
tively little consequence at the
present time, its ultimate exten-
sion east to some point of the
Atlantic coast is of the greatest
importance to both the Ever-

internal development feature.
Apparently the most feasible and
logical route of extension would
be down the canal to Miami.
However, the route and coast ter-
minal are matters yet undeter-
mined and the construction yet
unprovided for.
"But despite the short length of
the Moore Haven and Clewiston
extension and the present limited
scope of service, the celebration
of its completion on Labor Day
has served a great purpose in that
it has riveted public attention to'
the paramount need in the future
development of the Everglades
and Lake region transportation
- a railroad outlet to the Atlantic
seaboard and a comprehensive
system of highways through the
drained sections of the 'glades.
The present limitations afforded
by the shallow drainage canals
are almost negligible when com-
pared to the actual needs for farm
development. And until a railroad

Okeechobee County young
people from Yearling Middle
School, Students Working Against
Tobacco (SWAT) are joining thou-
sands of kids across the country
who are taking part in Kick Butts
Day, a nationwide initiative that
makes kidsleaders in the effort to
stop youth tobacco use. As part of
the Kick Butts Day celebration,
Yearling Middle School students
are taking the fight to the streets,
rallying against Big Tobacco.
Throughout the year, young
advocates take part in a variety of
activities to protect kids from
tobacco, including working with
elected officials to develop policies
that reduce youth tobacco use and
exposure to secondhand smoke
and educating their peers about
tobacco companies' deceptive


marketing practices.
"I think tobacco is disgusting. I
can't believe tobacco kills 88 peo-
ple daily right here in Florida," said
Alma Garcia a sixth grade student.
"The tobacco companies make
smoking look cool in their ads, but
that's nothing but a lied," said Julio
Chavez. "There's nothing cool
about bad breath, smelly clothes
and tobacco-stained teeth."

James Kirk, mayor of Okeechobee
will present the Kick Butts Procla-
mation at Yearling Middle School.
After school the hundreds of stu-
dents will take to the streets down-
town at the U.S. 441 and S.R. 70
intersection by Walgreen to rally
against Big Tobacco. Students will
take the message that "Tobacco
kills 88 Floridians Daily", and will
be passing out tobacco facts on
how tobacco kills more than aids,
murder, suicide, alcohol, illicit
drugs and accidents combined.
Tobacco use is the leading pre-
ventable cause of death in the Unit-
ed States, killing more than 400,000
people every year. Every day, more
than 4,000 kids try their first ciga-
rette; another 1,000 kids become
addicted smokes, one-third of
whom will die prematurely as a

sions to Okeechobee News, P.O. Box 639, Okeechobee, Fla. 34973.
Comments will be published in the newspaper as space permits.
PARENTS TO BLAME: The problems in the schools all go back to
the parents. Instead of spending time raising their children and teach-
ing them values, the parents either too concerned about their own
social life or else they are simply not up to the responsibilities of par-
enthood. Only about 25 percent of the children in Okeechobee live in a
family that includes a mother and father, who are married to each
other, and who are the biological parents of the children in the home.
What was once a normal, traditional family is now rare. The problems
in the schools are a reflection of the problems in our society.

BY-PASS NEEDED: Regarding the call from the person who said he
heard the business people opposed plans for a by-pass years ago, the
funny thing is I heard exactly the opposite. Not saying you're wrong,
but the first time I heard of a by-pass, my first thought was the same as
yours that the business folks would prefer the traffic. The person I
was talking to is an old Okeechobee hand, however, and his thoughts
made sense. He said, "What businesses would benefit? Maybe a gas
station or two, and maybe the fast food folks, but that's about it. All of
the rest of the businesses would just as soon see the bypass, because
that would make traffic easier for their customers. I thought about it,
and I realized he had a point very few of the businesses, especially
those along S.R. 70, are set up for transients. Folks who are passing
through from east to west don't turn off on U.S. 441. Now, I admit I get
all excited when I hear about a by-pass, because my property is right
on S.R. 70, and a bypass would removed most of the traffic. But, even if
I wasn't prejudiced, a by-pass just makes good sense to me. It would
help keep Okeechobee the way it is, now.

GOOD OLD BOYS: Regarding the rumor that the "good old boys"
blocked plans for a by-pass years ago, I think you're giving entirely too
much power to the "good old boys". As much as people seem to
blame them for everything, they really don't have much to say about
State Road construction or by-passes. If you ever notice the little rub-
ber hoses running across the road or someone sitting by the road with
a clipboard you'll see where the FDOT get their data. If the traffic count
is high enough then the roads are brought up to standards to handle
the flow. You can go to the FDOT web site and see what projects are
scheduled for this District. The trouble is, if you look at the District
Okeechobee is in, we share our dollars with several large counties like
Lee, Collier and Charlotte that have 1-75 projects and Polk, Sarasota
and other counties that have a whole lot more traffic than Okee-
chobee, in real car numbers, not just because you can't get out of
McDonalds onto S.R. 70. There are 40 projects currently listed on the
FDOT web site for this District and Okeechobee County says "Current-
ly no construction projects occurring in Okeechobee County". It does
say that S.R. 70 will be four-laned to the St. Lucie County line.

DANGEROUS DRIVING: I'm glad to see the turn lanes planned on
S.R. 70 at 67th and 87th; I wish there was one at 72nd. Maybe the no
passing zone from 67th will extend to 72nd. It's scary as heck making a
left turn onto 72nd when people are passing the car making the left.

RECYCLING: I agree with those who say the county needs curbside
recycling and I will vote for the county commission candidate who
makes this a campaign issue. There are most likely grants the county
could apply for if they really took an interest in this. If enough residents
ask for curbside recycling, the county commission could make it hap-
pen.

DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL: I'm talking about the gays in school. I'm
really not concerned about whether they have a club or not but what
makes me really mad is I have to pay for all these pregnant little girls,
and day care, welfare and any other thing they need. They just need to
go ahead and let the gays be gays and the straight kids be straight or
whatever they want to do after they get out of school is their business.
For now leave the teaching about right and wrong to the parents. It's
not the school's job to teach the kids what is right and wrong. That is a
family matter. If your kid is gay they don't need to advertise it to the
whole world. If they don't like the way they're being treated that's their
problem because everybody is not going to bend over backward and
let them have their way. I am sick and tired of hearing about it. Every-
body has rights and opinions. They just need to move on with their
lives and get over it.

SPEEDING TICKETS: Seems a shame that the Okeechobee City
Police don't appear to have anything better to do than to set up speed
traps on some of the side roads in Okeechobee.

READ THE BIBLE: I saw the article in the paper regarding God's
children. In the Bible it says that homosexuality is an abomination to
God. He does love the children but he doesn't love the sin and they do
go to hell There is no doubt about it. There are no Christian homosex-
uals. They might be in their own mind but it is an abomination to God.

Nancy Lopez to


play Ginn Open
By Daniel Shube ,.I 1


Nancy Lopez has decided to
make her first LPGA Tour appear-
ance of the year at the Ginn Open.
The Ginn Open will take place April
9 15, just up the road at the Ginn
Reunion Resort in Orlando.
Reunion is where Annika Soren-
stam has decided to build her
learning center. Of course, Annika
is scheduled to play, along with the
top three players on the ADT Offi-
cial Money List: Stacy Prammana-
sudh, Meagan Francella and Paula
Creamer. In addition, World Golf
Hall-of-Famers Juli Inster and Kar-
rie Webb are expected to compete.
When asked why she selected
the Ginn to play, Lopez responded,
"I just felt like it was a good time to
start. I've been working on my
game, and of course trying to get in
physical condition to start playing. I
felt like it was time to just go out
and try and put a little pressure on
my game and really prepare myself
for the rest of the year."
Lopez has been competing on
the LPGA Tour since winning the
Rookie of the Year award in 1978.
She captained the U.S. Solheim
Cup team to victory in 2005. While
Lopez has only played in 11 tourna-
ments since 2002, she has lost 37
pounds and is in great shape.
Don't expect Lopez to play a full
schedule yet. She may only play in
about six events. "I will probably
play tournaments that I've played
well in, courses that I have good
feelings about, places that I have a
lot of friends," said Lopez.
We'll have to wait to see how
Lopez does to figure out how
much time she has left to play on
the LPGA Tour. According to
Lopez, "I think this time I'll know if


Fairways and
Highways
by Daniel Shube
it's really the time to walk away
because of your body and because
of your age and what your body is
telling you more than anything."
The Ginn Open will be played at
the Ginn Reunion Resort on a com-
posite layout of two of the resort's
courses, the Legacy Course
designed by Arnold Palmer and the
Independence Course by Tom Wat-
son. CBS Sports will televise the
event but there is nothing like being
there!
Tickets are $10 for each of the
practice rounds and pro-am days,
and $30 for general admission for
each of the four rounds. Parking is
complimentary and included with
each ticket. Practice rounds will be
held on Monday, April 9 and Tues-
day, April 10. The pro-am will be
held Wednesday, April 11, and the
72-hole competition will begin
Thursday, April 12 and run through
April 15. A weekly badge is $80 and
includes admission to all seven
days. Seniors and all military, police
and fire personnel with IDs will be
admitted daily for $15.
Tickets for the 2007 Ginn Open
are available at
