Judge orders cooperation


CLEWISTON -. The 20th Cir-
cuit Court served legal notice
March 10, that Hendry Regional
Medical Center and Physical Ther-
apy Dynamics, Inc., show cause
and explain to the court why they
refused to comply with public
records requests for information
on the hospital's operations.
"Apparently the court agrees
with our premise that these
records should be available for
public review," said Robert Coker,
senior vice president, public


affairs. "If there is a reason that
the hospital is reluctant to dis-
close this information, particular-
ly regarding their dealings with
the therapy units and the sale of
property from the drug store, they
nowwill have to come clean."
U.S. Sugar's lawsuit was filed
after the administration of the
public hospital repeatedly refused
to provide the requested informa-
tion on its operations, including
documents related to its arrange-
ments with the privately owned


physical therapy services.
* "It is a shame that we had to
file a lawsuit to get financial infor-
mation from our community hos-
pital. If everything is in good
order, the administration should
be willing and able to comply
with the law and make these pub-
lic records public," Mr. Coker said.
Mr.. Coker is part of a blue-rib-
bon panel of local business lead-
ers that has been analyzing the
operations of the hospital after its
perilous financial standing was

brought to light with a 25 percent
raise in ad valorem taxes in order
to fund the increasing deficits of
the community hospital.
Terms of the summons
require the Hendry County Hospi-
tal Authority and
Physical Therapy Dynamics,
Inc. to respond by April 15.
According to Chief Executive
Officer Craig Cudworth, from
Hendry County Regional Medical
Center, it is the hospital's position
they have complied with fully


with the Open.Meetings Act.
"We believe we have already
complied with all of the require-
ments of the Open Meetings Act,"
he said. "We will proceed forth-
with, but we already provided
U.S. Sugar with over 5,000 pages
that they requested and have
spent many man-hours in doing
so."

students, identified through the
farm worker program, and
teamed up with a drywall con-
tractor, who was willing to
transport the men to the Red-
lands Christian Mission Associ-

other participating agencies.

seven days a week during the
five-week program," Mr. Caban
said,
Eight students fully complet-
ed the program.. The two
remaining are continuing in an
English as a Second Language
(ESOL) course to enable them
to continue their development
and acclimate themselves to a
predominantly English speak-
ing work environment.
Mr. Caban said the training
was done in Spanish, because
many of the participants didn't
have sufficient English skills to
participate in a course conduct-
ed solely in English.

County seeks



more water


By Patty Brant
Hendry County continued to
advocate a regional approach to
western Hendry/Glades' current
and future water and waste-
water needs. The Hendry Coun-
ty Board of County Commission-
ers.has sent a letter to the city of
LaBelle and Glades County
Commission with such a pro-
posal.
The city has not been recep-
tive to a regional approach, pre-
ferring to retain control of its
own water utilities.
The county's plan for its
western population would
encompass a service territory
that includes the city of LaBelle,
unincorporated Glades (Muse


area) and unincorporated
Hendry County west of CR 833
and north of Keri Road.
-According, to the county's
vision, this authority would pur-
chase existing water and waste-
water facilities and would also
construct and extend service
throughout the design territory.
Any surplus revenue would be
returned to the government
responsible for that area where
the surplus was generated.

ed Building Official to replace

Acknowledgment of service


By Patty Brant
A short ceremony preceded
the March 8 county commis-
sion business meeting, dedicat-
ing the auditorium at the health
department in Clewiston in
honor of Commissioner Janet
Taylor. Commissioner Taylor
reacted with tears of disbelief
and joy as she realized what
was happening and family
members' filed into the room
with red roses for her.
Hendry County Director of
Public Health Dr. Martha Valiant
had the honor of making the
announcement. She said she
and Commissioner Taylor go
"way back" since she has cared
for four generations of Ms. Tay-
lor's family. She was proud to'
announce this honor for a "very
special lady," saying she has
watched as Ms. Taylor's sphere
of influence grew from Harlem
to all of Clewiston to all of
Hendry County and to the state
of Florida.

said. She noted Ms. Taylor's
community spirit and tenacity

Pro Steadman Scholarship Fund Cake Auction


The Pro Steadman Scholarship
Fund was started as a community
project in honor of Mrs. Pro Stead-
man. "Pro" was the mother of five
4-H'ers, a leader for 10 years, and
was very active in all sectors of the
4-H program. She believed in the 4-
H organization and seeing it reach
its full potential for bringing fami-
lies together and keeping members
interested in worthwhile projects.


She was diagnosed with ALS (com-
monly known as Lou Gehrig's-dis-
ease) in May of 1988. Throughout
her struggle with the disease, she
maintained her interest and
involvement in youth programs as
much as she physically could. She
died in December of 1992, but still
lives on in the hearts of the many
that she influenced.
Mrs. Yvonne Swindle, current


president of the Hendry County Fair
Association, came up with the idea
of starting an annual men's cake
auction at the County Fair to raise
money for a 4-H Scholarship in
honor of Pro. The idea involved
many male "celebrities" from our
local communities and required
them to bake a cake to be auc-
tioned at the.Fair. The idea really
took off and with the help of many
generous cake makers and bid-


ders, as well as volunteers and fair
directors, the auction now raises
the money to provide two college
scholarships each year to worthy 4-
H members.
-The male celebrity cake auction
will take place Friday, March 18, at
the Hendry County Fairgrounds
beginning at 5:30 p.m. in the enter-
tainment pavilion. Please come out
and give your support.

Mad cow disease still a concern


Mad cow disease has been
'back in the news with concerns
'about Canadian cattle. I checked
'the Center for Disease Control
:(CDC) website for an update.
According to the CDC, Bovine
spongiform encephalopathy
:(BSE), widely referred to as
S"mad cow disease," was first
diagnosed in 1986 in Great
:Britain. The Department contin-
tues to work with federal and
,state partners to conduct surveil-
lance and to prevent the intro-
duction of BSE from foreign
sources.
The CDC website provided
the following information about
Mad Cow disease.
Question: What is BSE?
Answer: Bovine Spongiform
Encephalopathy (BSE), referred
to in the press as Mad Cow Dis-
Sease, is a degenerative neurolog-
Scal disease of cattle caused by
en abnormal protein called a
brion. There is strong scientific
evidence indicating that BSE can
pe transmitted to humans caus-
ing a variant form df Creutzfeldt-
Slakob disease (vCJD). There
Shave been less than 200 human
J.ases reported worldwide. The
risk to human health from BSE
n the United States is extremely
S ow.
Question: Is BSE Contagious?
Answer: No, it's important to
Note that BSE is not a contagious
'disease; spread occur through
ithe ingestion of infected.materi-
al, generally brain or spinal cord
tissue.
Question: What has been
done to prevent BSE occurrence
tin the United States?
Answer: Since 1989, live
;ruminants have been prohibited
Sentry into the United States from
countries that have had cases of
'BSE. High-risk ruminant materi-
als from these countries have
[also been prohibited entry. Since
;1997, there has been an. FDA
feed ban to prohibit the use of

mammalian protein in the pro-
duction of ruminant feeds.
Question: Do we have BSE in
the United States?
Answer: In December 2003, a
dairy cow went down after calv-
ing, was tested, and was found
positive for BSE in the state of
Washington. This is the only
case of BSE ever reported in the
United States and this animal
was traced to a Canadian herd
that was sold in a herd sale dis-
persal. Although a coordinated,
effective response was made by
the cattle industry, and State and
Federal officials, public concern.
nationally and internationally
was very high. Good communi-
cations deflected a panic here,
with little impact on domestic
marketing, but many of our mar-
kets around the world were
closed to U.S. beef, a number of
those remaining closed today.
Question: If we have had only
one case, why increase our test-
ing?
Answer: There has been a
public outcry for more BSE test-
ing, with the United States being
targeted for criticism. Since the
December case, an international
team of scientists recommended
that we do a one-time, large-
scale testing effort to detect
whether BSE is present in the
U.S. cattle population and, if so,
at what level. In response to this
and to further assure the public
and our markets, USDA has set a
goal of testing more than
250,000 target cattle over an 18


month period. This would detect
1 positive case in a million ani-
mals with a 95% confidence
rate. Florida's goal is to collect
4,000 samples. As of January
2005, approximately 189,000
samples from targeted animals
have been tested in the U.S. and
approximately 1,500 from Flori-
da with no.positive results.
Question: What animals
should be tested?
. Answer: Target cattle include
those over 30 months of age
which exhibit at least one of the
following: Downers or non-
ambulatory, those able to stand
only for brief periods, those with
nervous signs, and those con-
demned, moribund, emaciated
and dead cattle. Cattle with
nervous signs less than 30
months of age may also be test-
ed. FSIS is now required to test
all pre-slaughter condemned
cattle.
Question: What tests are
used and how are results report-
ed?
Answer: Brain tissue samples
.are required for testing; thus,
there .are no live animal tests.
The IHC test is considered the
definitive test but must be con-
ducted in national laboratories
and may take a week or more to
complete. Recently rapid tests
called ELISA tests (which can be
done within 24 hours) have
been approved as- screening
tests and our laboratory in
Kissimmee is preparing to run
these tests. The ELISA test will
report negative or inconclusive
results, with inclusive samples
immediately sent to a national
laboratory for further testing.
Producer confidentiality is
extremely important. We are
working to ensure that any
inconclusive results are not
reported out with respect to pro-
ducers or even to the state of ori-
gin.
Question: How will we identi-


'Children's fair planned in LaBelle


LABELLE Children's organ-
izations throughout Hendry and
Glades counties will celebrate
' Children's Week next month,
with a Children's Fair at LaBelle
Elementary School.
This is the third year for the
Children's Fair, which will be held-
Saturday, April 2, fron- 10 a.m. to

Children will participate in fun
activities, such as button making,
paper hat decorating, and hand
print crafts, as well as a reading
corner. Each family that attends
will be given a free book. Door
prizes will be awarded and cook-
ies and juice will be served.
There also will free hearing
and vision screenings. A fire
truck, canine unit and ambulance
also will be on display as instruc-
tional tools for children.


The Children's Week activities
are sponsored by the Early Learn-
ing Coalition of Southwest Flori-
da, Family Service Network of
Hendry/Glades, Child Care of
Southwest Florida, and the Unit-
ed Way/211 Service to call atten-
tion to the need for more high
quality child care for young chil-
dren from infancy to age five:
Children's Week is a statewide
celebration with proclamations
issued by the Florida Legislature
as well as local governments
.throughout Florida. Thousands of
handprints created by children in
Southwest Florida already have
been sent to Tallahassee for the
event.
"We know that the-quality of
child care that children receive
from ,birth to age three has a
major impact on the rest of their


lives," said Rhea B. Mike, execu-
tive director of Child Care of
Southwest Florida, which oper-
ates the Children's Garden of
LaBelle child care, center. "That's
why it is vitally important that our
community leaders make the
well-being of children and fami-
lies our highest priority."
More than 185 children of low-
income working parents are cur-
rently on waiting lists to receive
financial assistance for child care
in Hendry and Glades counties,
according to data compiled by
Child Care of Southwest Florida,
Inc.
"Working parents need afford-
able quality child care for their
children in order to work. It is the
responsibility of parents, employ-
ers, and'community leaders to
see that no child is left at home


Software tracks immunization records.


' TALLAHASSEE Florida-
SHOTS, the State Health Online
Tracking System for Immuniza-
tions, in its February 21 software
release, made the new feature of
immunization reminder/recall
capabilities available to enrolled
private health care providers
throughout the state of Florida.
* "It is imperative that children
receive the correct vaccinations at
the appropriate time to safeguard
their health," says DOH Secretary
John 0. Agwunobi, M.D., M.B.A.,
M.P.H "Reminder and recall mes-
sages are a powerful tool in
improving immunization cover-
age rates and maintaining proper.
vaccination schedules."
"Florida SHOTS has success-
fully piloted the reminder/recall
feature with public providers, and


we are now making it available to
private providers," says Florida
SHOTS Director, Susan Linci-
come.
The reminder/recall functions
allow providers to select informa-
tion on a variety of criteria such as'
child's age, vaccine type, and due
dates for next or overdue doses.
Providers then know which chil-
dren have missed a vaccination
and which are due for vaccina-
tions, and can notify parents
accordingly.
Florida SHOTS was developed
by the DOH Bureau of Immuniza-
tion to be used as a tool to
increase childhood immunization
levels and eliminate vaccine-pre-
ventable diseases. The Florida
Legislature .authorized the free
statewide electronic immuniza-


tion registry. The registry is
accessed via the Internet through
the Florida SHOTS Web-based
system. System software is updat-
ed regularly with new functionali-
ty to assist health care providers,
the front line of immunization
defense. The new release is the
first of several system upgrades
planned for 2005 at no cost to
providers.
Enrollment in Florida SHOTS is
free. Participating health care
providers must be licensed in the
state of Florida.

da SHOTS, or to enroll in the sys-
tem, visit www.flshots.org

fy cattle to be sampled?
Answer: We are currently
working with renderers who
handle the bulk of these cattle to
arrange for sample collection.
We are also urging producers
and veterinary practitioners to
assist by reporting downers and
other cattle in those target
groups for sample collection.
Question: What about cost
recovery to practitioners, pro-
ducers, and plants?
Answer: There .are USDA
guidelines in place for cost
recovery payments. Payments
will be made to individuals
under agreement and can
include sample collection and
submission, carcass storage,
transportation of carcasses, dis-
posal of carcasses, fees for
accredited veterinarians and
cost recovery for stored meat-
and-bone meal/rendered prod-
ucts.
Question: How important is
this testing?
Answer: It is important to test
as many target animals in Flori-
da as possible as part of the
national testing program to pro-
vide greater assurance to the
consumer public and to support
our domestic and international
marketing of beef. While BSE is
extremely rare in the United
States, without proper testing,
we cannot obtain the confi-
dence of our consumers and our
domestic and foreign markets.
Question: Who do I call to
request testing or receive addi-
tional program information?
Answer: Information about
surveillance in Florida: United
States Department of.Agricul-
ture, Animal and Plant Health
Inspection Services, Veterinary
Services, at (352) 333-3120 or
the Bureau of Animal Disease
Control at (850) 410-0900.

Speak Out

Speak Out is our free 24-hour opinion line. Call 983-9140
to express your opinion or ask a question about public
issues. You are not required to give your name. While we
want you to speak freely, the newspaper reserves the right to
edit calls for clarity, brevity, relevance and fairness. I
What were you thinking?
We came home today all excited about the track team being
formed at Clewiston Middle School. After picking her up after
practice, I informed her she's not gonna be on that track team. I
was appalled to see someone involved with the team drinking
alcohol during track.
Thanks for thinking of us
I am a supporter of your newspaper and very much in agree-
ment with showing the faces of those sexual offenders. I'm very
much in favor of it. You're doing a good job of it, you're protect-
ing the public and that's great because we need that. We need a
newspaper that stands behind Its people and you are standing
beside the people. You sell newspapers too, but you are part of
the community, so thanks for doing a great job.

Protect the victims
I'm calling about the items in:Speak Out about the young
men whose faces that were on the newspaper. I am ashamed to
be from Clewiston to think that the people from Clewiston are
more concerned about young men that are convicted of some
type of sex offense against children and we are supposed to be
concerned about them? If they do not want their pictures on the
paper, they should not have anything to do with sexual encoun-
ters with people that are underage. Somebody has to protect our
young children not the men that can't control their actions. So
please let it go. The men that were on the paper were found
guilty of having some kind of crime.
What about the victims?
I can't believe all these people are complaining about the sex
offenders' pictures being put on the newspaper. What about the
kids whose lives they affected? They are only worried about the
offenders re-doing their lives. What about the victims? Who's
worrying about them? ,
Be ashamed very ashamed
I'm calling about all these people complaining about the sex
offenders put on the newspaper. These people ought to be
ashamed of themselves. If all these people in the town are wor-
ried about the offenders, then they're sick. They need help. You
need to worry about the victims. People need to think about the
kids protect their kids. They are being put on the newspaper
for a reason, so you know who these people are to keep these
people away from your kids. They are the ones that suffer, not
the offenders. They deserve whatever they get.

It's about time
I would like to commend the Clewiston News for printing the
pictures of the sexual offenders in the area. It's about time some-
body took a stand for the victims in this area. A lot of them are
children and just because these people are known in the com-
munity or their families are upstanding citizens, it doesn't mean
they aren't guilty of doing something wrong. And it's about time
somebody took up for the victims. Around here, in America's
sweetest little town, everybody forgets that children are victims
to and it's not right, and it's about time somebody printed it. If
somebody has a problem with it, maybe they have things they
are sweeping under the carpet also.

Let us know about all of them
I think it's wonderful that you making the public aware of the
sexual offenders in this area. I wish the people from LaBelle
could have been included in the, pictures, making the entire
county aware of the faces involved. Some of these people work
on this side of the county. We realize that these people are post-
ed on the FDLE Web site, but not everybody has access to that
site.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. You, indeed, have a point, as
there are several offenders in the LaBelle area, as well. In this day
of technology, it was an oversight to assume that everyone can
access the Web. I would advise those people without comput-
ers or internet access, to visit their local library in order to use a
computer to visit the FDLE Web site.
Giving the victims a voice
I just want to thank Mark Young, the editor of the newspaper
for the excellent article on sexual predators. Finally, we have a
voice for the children. We must stand up and protect our chil-
dren, not the criminals. Thank you again, very much.


Letters to the editor


Thank you hospital
I am writing to publicly thank
Doctor Forbes, his staff, Hendry
Regional Medical Center, and the
EMS, for the wonderful care my
husband received while he was
in the hospital.
Once Dr. Forbes decided he
would admit Morris, he was sent
by Dr. Forbes' nurse directly to
admitting and was sent to ICU
immediately. He received the
best care until he was sent to
Miami to have tests.
Morris has been in Hendry
Regional Medical Center a num-
ber of times over the years and
he has always been will taken
care of. ,
We are so lucky to have this
facility in our community. I can-
not imagine anyone considering
closing it. I know we have prob-
lems that need addressing and
the hospital board and adminis-
tration is in the process of doing
that. Morris and I and our family
are behind the hospital 100 per-
cent.
We have been to other hospi-


tals.on the coast and they may
have newer equipment, but the
care our hospital gives makes up
for everything. They took care of
all the arrangements of having
Morris transferred to Miami and
all I had to do was meet him
there. The doctor, nurses, aides,
and the EMS were wonderful
When we need medical care,
we will always feel comfortable
going to Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center..
Sincerely:
Morris and Betty Ridgdill

Thanks for helping
The Clewiston High School

Good job third
graders
Today, we went to the Hendry
County Fair for the first time. It
was great. Our favorite thing at
the fair was the "Model of
Clewiston" by the Westside third
graders. What an ambitious
undertaking! You certainly did an
outstanding job and should be
applauded. Again, thanks to the
third graders and their teacher at
Westside Elementary.
Sincerely:
Jack and Peggy Witman


Never disappointed
There has been some talk
over the years about poor serxv-
ice that some patients have
received at Hendry Regional
Hospital. I would like to say that I
have had to use the same hospi-
tal three or four times over the
years and at no time was I disap-
pointed.
I was recently admitted to the
emergency room very satis-
fied with the service I received. I
spent four days in.the hospital -
very satisfied. Dr. Remesh
Devanesan oversaw my treat-
ment and this I can say of him: I
was well satisfied. We are fortu-
nate to have him in Clewiston.
About the nurses: They do
very good work also. If I could
remember all of their names, I
would list them. I thank all of
you nurses for a job well done. I
would also like to thank Dr.
Laura Jones, my doctor, for com-
ing in and examining me.
Sincerely:
Lewis L. Blount


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I've used
choker chains to train my dogs for
years and have gotten nothing but
a well trained dog! What's all the
noise about choker chains being
a bad choice all of a sudden?
Thanks Doc Bill in Boca.
A: Well hey there Bill! I agree
choker chains when used proper-
ly are an excellent method of
training a large dog. I think, how-
ever, that many folks don't know
how to put them on and use them
properly. If not used with experi-
ence, you can really hurt a dog.


It's not about pain it's about
control. Also never use a choker
collar on a small dog they are
too fragile. | .
Take care Bill .

Q: Dear
Doc Savvy. It's
flu season .
the entire fam-
ily is sick ..,
even Kelly our '
Jack Russel?
Does it work
that, way? Thanks Doc love


your radio show Jerry in
South Bay.

A: Well thanks for tuning in
Jerry! Okay, here is how it
works. Viruses and bacteria are
supposed to be pretty species
specific. So, that means we are
not supposed to get dog germs
and visa-versa. However, we can
get other species bugs that are
self limiting. This means dog
bugs and germs may not always
want to live in or on us, but they
can temporarily then die off


- 'Cause we are not their
favorite host or place to live. So
the effect is usually temporary
and minimal. Hope that sets you
straight Jerry. Get well soon,
Doc Savvy.

I served a church next to a Jew-

their members came to my office

This was a "Sabbath" (Friday)
evening, and turning on a light
would be work. Work was inter-

be done, even turning on a light.
As I was leaving, I was asked
how I could ignore the command-
ments, what about eating pork
when it was so plain that it was for-
bidden? I answered that there are
many interpretations, even among
the Jews. Hillel, a liberal rabbi, saw
things much differently than his
conservative counterpart Shmmai.
In fact people seem to follow
what makes sense to them. Simply,
before refrigeration and knowl-
edge about what it was in meat that
could make you sick, people soon
found that pork was likely to cause
problems. That was certainly taken
as a sign from God who was saying
"No pork!" Polygamy and slavery
were okay, but no pork!
Later, a new interpretation
came into being, but there were
those who held vigorously to what
once was, as was their privilege.
The New Testament speaks on eat-
ing what is "unclean," Jesus point-
ing out that that it is what comes
out of people that makes them
"unclean" and not what goes into
them (Mark 7:20).
Peter becomes hungry in his
travels and there were all kinds of
"reptiles and birds." Peter, as hun-
gry as he may be, refuses to eat,
saying, "No, Lord, for I have never
eaten anything that is common or
unclean." The voice comes again
"What God has cleansed, you must
not call unclean." (Acts 10:9f).
How does one interpret the com-
mandments? Keeping the Sabbath
holy may mean "no work" or
"keeping it holy" in another sense.
I had someone point out that we
shouldn't work on the Sabbath and
I asked if they thought what I did
was working on the Sabbath?
Maybe some do not consider Sun-
day as the Sabbath, respecting it as
Saturday and with some reason. We
celebrate Sunday as a Resurrection
Day, a "little Easter" and take "Sab-
bath" in the sense of "seventh" and

See Thomas -Page 14


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
-"Here's mud in your eye!" is a
traditional toast that comes from
the sport of horse racing. Apparent-
ly, the victor of a horse race would
toast the loser, saying "Here's mud
in your eye" as a reminder that the
losing horse got mud kicked in its
face. It can also be used before the
race as a little tease: "I hope the
horse you're riding finishes behind
the one I'm riding!"
There is a Gospel lesson that
gives us a slightly different take on
"mud in your eye." Jesus and His
disciples encounter a man blind
since birth, and the disciples ask if it
was the sin of this man or of his
.parents that caused him to be born
blind. Jesus told them that it was
neither, but that the man was born
blind so that the glory of God's
works could be revealed through
him. Saying this, Jesus proceeded
to show that glory by rubbing
some mud made out of spit and
dirt into the guy's eyes, and then
tells him to go wash it out. It kind of
gives a whole new connotation to
the phrase, "Here's mud in your
eyes."
Here, mud in the eye is not
about losing, but about winning. It
is not about blindness, but about
seeing the truth. And this story is
not really about a healing, but
about how we can look and not
see, hear and not understand,
belong and not believe. for the
story continues.
The man who received sight had
no mud in his eyes. He washed it
out in the pool of Siloam. It was the
Pharisees and others who were still
blinded by the mud in their eyes -
the mud of their refusal to see God
at work in a new way. They just
couldn't accept that this blind sinner
received his sight, or that Jesus
could be of God because He healed
on the Sabbath. It wasn't the way
things had always been done.'
The Pharisees are depicted in


this story like people who pray for
light, but keep the shutters closed
and the curtains drawn. The irony
here is that the ones who can't see
are not the blind, but the ones who
refuse to see the truth when God
puts it right in front of them. '
I wonder if we might be more
like them than we'd like to think. I

Hendry County Sheriff
praises Explorers
Hendry County Sheriff Ronnie
Lee praised members of Explorer
Post 642. Sgt. Barbara Brown,
senior advisor, and John Nickols,
associate advisor, .took the
Hendry County Explorers to
Bradenton.
The Explorers post in Braden-
ton sponsored the training exer-


cise, which included vehicle traf-
fic stops and building searches.
The sheriff's department and the
Explorers would like to express
their gratitude to Plattner Dodge
for loaning the Explorers a Dodge
Caravan to make the Bradenton
training session, since the bus
they normally use is in need of
repairs.
The Explorers range in age
from 14-21 and meet at Clewiston
High School every Monday night.
Explorers are interested in a pos-
sible career in. law enforcement
and assist in such things as direct-
ing traffic for County Fairgrounds

other related activities.
They do this on a volunteer
basis and must raise their own
funds for these training exercises.
A weeklong training session is
scheduled for June and anyone
wanted to join or contribute to the
cause, can contact the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office at (863)

Loans available to local businesses


ORLANDO The U.S. Small
Business Administration (SBA)
reminds businesses owners
throughout Florida that Economic
Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) are
still available to small businesses
that were economically impacted
from Hurricanes Charley, Francis,
Ivan and Jeanne.
"Small businesses that want to
apply for economic injury losses
still have time to apply for assis-
tance even though the physical
damage deadline has passed,"
said SBA Disaster Area Director,
Michael C. Allen. "Small business-
es do not need to have physical
damage to be eligible to apply for
these loans."
Small businesses may apply
for a loan of up to $1.5 million if


they have suffered substantial
economic injury in the aftermath
of last year's historic hurricane
season. These working capital
loans may be used to pay fixed
debts, payroll, accounts payable,
and other bills that could have
been paid had the disaster not
occurred. These loans are not
intended to replace lost sales or
profits- The interest rate on these
loans is 2.9 percent, with a maxi-
mum term of 30 years. The SBA
determines the amount of eco-
nomic injury, the term of each
loan and the payment amount,
based on the financial circum-
stances of each borrower.
The deadline to apply for these
loans varies by declaration. For
Hurricane Charley the deadline is


May 13. The deadline for Hurri-
cane Frances is June 6. Hurricane
Ivan victims have until June 16
and the Hurricane Jeanne dead-
line is June 27. Victims with eco-
nomic losses from more than one
storm are only required to com-
plete one loan application.
Small businesses interested in
applying for assistance can visit
SBA representatives at any of the
remaining federal/state recovery
centers, SBA Disaster Outreach
Centers (DOCs) or by calling the
SBA at 1-800-359-2227. Business
loan applications can also be
downloaded from the SBA web-
.site at www.sba.gov/disaster .
Completed applications from the
Peninsula should be mailed to: U.
S. Small Business Administration,


P.O. Box 621117, Orlando, Florida

the Panhandle should be mailed
to: U. S. Small Business Adminis-
tration, P.O. Box 9549, Pensacola,
FL 32513-9549.

In the aftermath of last year's
hurricanes, the SBA has made
more than 48,512 disaster loans
for more than $1.5 billion
throughout the State of Florida;
Hurricane Charley 13,688
loans for $437.6 million, Hurri-
cane Frances 12,034 loans for
$322.2 million, Hurricane Ivan -
12,289 loans for $506.3 million
and Hurricane Jeanne 10,501

Florida unemployment estimates revised


The state's January 2005
unemployment rate of 4.3 per-
cent is down from the revised rate
of 4.6 percent in December 2004
and down 0.6 percentage point
from 4.9 percent a year ago. The
state's rate of job growth in Janu-
ary (3.5 percent) was double the
national rate (1.7 percent). Addi-
tionally, the revised estimates for
2004 that resulted from annual
benchmarking of data show a job
market in Florida that was notably
stronger than previously estimat-
ed.

FWC asks
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's
(FWC's) recently restructured
Division of Freshwater Fisheries
Management is opening com-
munication lines with anglers.
The agency wants to learn more
about what it would take to
improve fishing opportunities
here. "
"We're trying to evaluate the
performance of the previous
fisheries division over the .past


In January 2005, seasonally
adjusted nonagricultural employ-
-ment grew by 261,300 jobs over
the year, growing at a rate of 3.5
percent.
With newly revised data avail-
able, it is evident that Florida's
manufacturing sector turned the
corner into positive growth in
April 2004 and has remained posi-
tive since then. The sector as a
whole added 4,000 jobs over the
year while the higher-paying
Durable Goods Manufacturing
sector added 6,500 jobs over the

Durable Goods Manufacturing
sector were added in computer
and electronic product manufac-
turing (+1,900 jobs, +3.9 per-
cent) and aerospace product
manufacturing (+900 jobs, +5.1
percent).
In January, Okeechobee

and comments are confidential.

In a second step, the FWC
will host a series of public meet-

CHS Tigers split clay diamond action


By Mark Young
An explosive third inning
allowed the Clewiston High School
Tigers all the runs they would need
to topple Ft. Myers Dunbar March
4, by a score of 4-3.
Brent Johnston slapped a two-
run hit, with Jarred Combass and
Stephon Duploy each knocking in a
run to account for all four runs.
Kale Mitchell had Clewiston's other
key hit to get himself into scoring
position.
Clewiston had Bear Adams on


Tiger teni
By Mark Young
Clewiston High School's Tiger
net squad picked up their second
victory of the season after quickly
dispatching with Immokalee by a
team score of 6-1.
The Tigers almost completed
the sweep, save a close contest at
the number five seed. Through the
first four matches, the Tigers had
little trouble in securing the victo-


Number one seed Josh Ingram
opened up against Richard Rayna
with an identical 6-0 sweep in two
sets, to put the Tigers up early.
Number two seeded Andre Fuente
picked up a 6-2 win in the first set
and went on to close out the victo-
ry with a 6-0 win.
Clewiston secured the team
victory with wins at both the
number three and four seeds.
James Hainiely, playing at the
number three spot, tok a 6- I and


the mound and the young hurler
went the distance in picking up
seven strikeouts and only allowed
two hits.
"This was a big district win for
the team," said Tiger head coach
Vance Johnston. "We had good
pitching by Bear.Adams and good
defense throughout the game. We
got key hits at the right time."
The Tigers clawed out a 4-3 vic-
t6ry over Dunbar, but didn't have
the claws to get past Avon Park, as
the Red Devils held off the Tigers
for a close 3-2 victory March 7.


The two squads traded runs in
the first inning, Avon Park clicked
off one run in each of the fourth
and fifth innings, and the Tigers
*would add a run in the bottom of
the seventh, but came up just short
of pulling off the come from behind
victory.
Johnston went l-for-3, as did
Kyle Kerstein to lead the Tiger
offensive efforts, with both sluggers
picking up doubles on the night.
Nick Raiola worked four innings,
picked up five Ks and allowed two
runs on his watch. Mitchell came in


to work the final three innings in
relief, allowing one run while pick-
ing up a trio of Ks.
"Both pitchers did a good job in
this game," said Johnston. "We
had our chances to win the ball
game. We just did not hit the ball
real well. When we did have a
-good hit, it was at someone."
The Tigers have since played
Moore Haven, Bishop Verot, and
LaBelle and are back in action
March 18 against North Port on the
road at 4 p.m.


nis team knocks off Immokalee


6-3 victory, while number four-
seeded Patrick Morton knocked
off Bobby Armond with wins of 6-
3 and 6-4.
Immokalee picked up their
only victory in the number five
seed match, but the Tigers had
already locked up the win and
went on to take both doubles
matches.
Ingram and Fuente walked off
the court with an 8-0 sweep, while
Hainley and Raymond Guerrero
battled their way to a 9-7 win, to
close out the.overall 6-1 Tiger win.
Tiger head coach Steve Gwyn
said his young squad is starting to
play with more authority now that
they have some experience under
their belts.
"All of the players are playing
well right now," he said. "They are
beginning to stroke the ball with
more authority. This is a young
team andit's a tendency for begin,.


ners to push the ball but are begin-
ning to hit the ball better."
The Tigers improve their net


record to 2-7 on the year and will
take the court against Northport
for their next competition..

Fishfinder helps make roadmap to an underwater, world


By Ken Cook
My goal as a professional angler
has always been helping others
enjoy the sport of fishing so that we
can be stronger in our efforts to pre-
serve the fishing environment.
Throughout my 20-plus years of
professional fishing I have discov-
ered one sure way to accomplish
This goal.


Any guesses? The one constant
answer is to help others become
more productive anglers. In return
they are more compelled to do
what they can to protect the
longevity of the sport.
One of the best ways to teach
people to become more produc-
tive on the water is to make sure
they are familiar with their equip-
ment.

Familiarization with equipment
can save time. Instead of spending
all your time looking for fish you'll
spend more time catching them. A
fish finder is the perfect example.
When most people take to the
water their fish finders' sole func-
tion is to reveal the location of fish.
But in reality a fish finder is so much
more. A fish finder when prop-
erly used acts as a roadmap to a
fish's environment.
Fish are affected by underwater
structure such as trees, weeds,
rocks, and drop-offs, current, sun-
light and wind. The ability to view
these structures can make a big dif-
ference in your anchoring deci-
sions and techniques along with
your bait selection. Mud and vege-
tation on the bottom absorb and
scatter the sonar signal, which
reduces the strength of the return
echo. Harder bottoms of shale,
rock or coral easily reflect the sonar
signal. The difference is easily iden-


w mmm--.


tifiable on your screen. A soft bot-
tom shows as a thin line across the
screen while a hard bottom shows
as a wide line on the sonar's
screen.
The absence of fish in an area
does not mean anglers should dis-
miss the types of underwater struc-
tures that are visible on the screen.
During competition I always
make sure to note where I have
found structures that would make'
good fish habitats. As the course of
the tournament roles on I will often
revisit these spots when on the pre-
vious day no fish were visible.
Changes in water temperature,
times of the year and a fish's life
cycle all play an important role in
identifying the best underwater
locations.
The next time you are on the
water take time to identify under-
water structures. If you do you'll be
one cast closer to landing the big
oneyou've seen in your dreams.

presenters will be on hand.
If there is -an interest in partici-
pating in the Career Day to recruit
bright young students into a speci-
fied career path, contact Isabelle
Belton at the high school at (863)
983-150 extension 407. The
school's fax number is (863) 983-
2168. Participants are asked to
RSVP by phone, mail, or fax.
The Career Day will begin at 8
a.m. Students will be visiting from
8:30-10:20 a.m. Refreshments will
be available in the lobby of the gym,


and the day will conclude at 10:20

The event is designed to get

for the students. A school to work-
force partnership is developed with
this event. The goal is to have the


students focus on what they want
to do and stay in school to take the
classes they need to achieve that
goal.
A Career Day gives the student a
person to talk to, who has gone
through the qualifications of what it
takes, providing them with realistic
and practical information of what a
student can expect in a given career
area. Career Day can also develop
mentoring between a presenter
and a student, which can be very
beneficial to both.

thy cause," stated Ed Upthegrove,
Clewiston SADD Advisor.
National SADD is in partnership
with American Cellular Donation
Organization (ACDO). Those who
donate will not only be contribut-
ing to a great cause but also be pro-
tecting the environment. ACDO
recycles the old cell phones, which
prevents them from ending up in
landfills where they can be very
hazardous to our environment.
ACDO recycles the non-working
phones according to EPA guide-
lines and sells the working phones
to an affiliate company. 100% of
the proceeds from the sale of the
reusable cellular phones,based on
current market value, will go to the

lings


SADD chapter.
"SADD is the nation's leading
peer-to-peer youth education and,
prevention organization. It's an
honor for ACDO to support SADD's
mission of empowering our
nation's youth to make positive
choices, and through this program,
students will be able to help con-
serve resources and protect the
environment," said Vincent Serio,
founder and CEO of ACDO.
There is an estimated 500 mil-
lion used cellular phones now lying
idle in America's closets and desk
drawers.. Since 1999, millions of
dollars have been generated from
collecting, refurbishing, and
reselling used cellular phones and


recyclable materials. Most of this
money, over $10.5 billion, has been
donated to charities. If you have
any old cell phones now is your
chance to turn your trash into chari-
table cash.
To donate your old cell phone to
support SADD go to www.cellular-
donation.org/zip.asp to type in
your zip code and find a location
near you. For more information
about Clewiston High School
SADD and its used cell phone drive,
call Ed Upthegrove at (863) 983-
1520. Other non-profit organiza-
tions interested in running a used
cell phone drive of their own to
raise funds can call (586) 524-2399.

Clewiston FFA celebrates

National FFA Week


By Jessica Rice
Clewiston FFA reporter
February 19 through the 26
was a week that the Clewiston
FFA chapter will never forget.
The week was filled with fun
and games that gave every
member a chance to be
involved. On Monday the 21st all
of Clewiston's FFA officers had a
meeting with Mayor Mali Cham-
ness to sign the National FFA
week proclamation to declare
the beginning of the fun filled
week.
Tuesday Feb. 22, all of the FFA
members came to the agricul-
ture building for a BBQ to cele-
brate this week and to just have
a good time. Wednesday the
Feb. 23, FFA had a BBQ for the
teachers. The teachers at Clewis-
ton High School do a lot for the.
members and the members just
wanted to say thanks and give
them a nice lunch to show
appreciation for their dedica-
tion.
Thursday Feb. 24, .FFA held a
kiss the pig contest. Six teachers
were voted on by all CHS stu-
dents to see who would kiss a
pig. There was a tie between Ms.


Whitehead and Mr. Wood. They
both were honored with the
privilege of kissing the pig. The
money that was totaled will go
to Red Cross for people in need
of money for hurricane relief.
Also during school on Thursday
FFA had the school show appre-
ciation toward the FFA. Anyone
who wanted to participate could
wear anything dealing with FFA..
On Friday Feb. 25, after
school FFA held the greenhand
initiation. All of the new green-
hands had a little surprise wait-
ing. All of our officers had water
balloons filled with green water
and when they were least
expecting it FFA members threw
the balloons at them. Old and
new FFA members all got dirty
but had lots of fun. Throughout
this whole week everyone
enjoyed themselves and liked to
experience celebrating National
FFAweek.
The FFA is the nation's largest
youth organization. FFA makes a
positive difference in the lives of
students by developing their
potential for premier leadership,
personal growth and career suc-
cess through agricultural educa-
tion.

SIMPLE SECRETS TO LOWER YOUR UTILITY COSTS


If you are like many home-
owners, you likely dread the
arrival of bills. Especially, the
water, gas and electric bills it
feels like you have no control
over them, so you just sigh and
write the check. It's time to
take charge of your bills. By
just paying a little more atten-
tion to your household habits,
you can cut your utility costs.
Sure, you'll never eagerly
anticipate seeing utility, bills.
in the mailbox. But you just
might be smiling at your sav-
ings.

WATER
Turn off the water in the
sink or shower while you're
brushing your teeth or shav-
ing.
Wait for a full load before
running the dishwashing
machine or washer.
Take showers instead of
baths to cut down on the use
of hot water.


Take a 10-minute shower
instead of a 20-minute one.
In the yard, put sprinklers
on a timer and water in the
morning to minimize evapora-
tion.
Fix leaky faucets or run-
ning toilets.

ELECTRICITY
Turn off appliances and
lights that aren't in use. '
Replace bulbs with lovwer-
wattage ones if possible. "
Install ceiling fans.. Then
you can decrease air condi-
tioning use in the summer and
circulate heat in the winter.
See if appliances like air
conditioners and furnaces are
energy efficient.
Remove the lint from the
dryer filter after every load.
That will let in more heat and
dry clothes faster.
Plant tall shrubs and bush-
es. You'll get shade in the sum-
mer and won't have to blast

the air conditioning. In the
winter, they can block harsh
winds.
Insulate places where out-
.side air comes in, like win-
dows or doors.

GAS
Turn off the stove or oven
a few minutes before food is
done. Residual heat will finish
the cooking.
The oven door should be
closed tightly. If you can't shut
it, get it fixed.
Cook several dishes in the-
oven at once to save heat.
Reduce the temperature
on your gas heater.
Don't heat closets, and
heat guest rooms only when
they are occupied.
If bedrooms are empty
during the day, turn on the
heat an hour before bedtime.
Remove the lint and dust
from ventilation ducts to give
heat and air conditioning clear
paths.

ATTENTION


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has announced that his
department is launching a major
planning project to help shape the
future of forests in Florida.
"How are our forests going to
continue to provide the wood,
clean water, recreation and diver-
sity of wildlife 25 years from
now?" Mr. Bronson is asking.
"And what do we want them to
look like 25 years from now?"
As a result of development,
hurricanes, wildfires, insect and
disease outbreaks and the
demand for forestry products,


Florida's forests today comprise
only 14 million acres down from
more than 20 million acres in the
1930's. Officials estimate that the
figure will decline to 12 million
acres by the year 2030.
The planning effort that is get-
ting underway will focus on how
the state manages what are
inevitable changes rather than
merely reacting to those changes.
Division of Forestry (DOF) offi-
cials have already taken the first
step, assessing the present condi-
tions of forests in Florida, and the
public can review that assess-
ment by visiting DOF's website at
www.fl-dof.com.


The public -is encouraged to
participate by attending one of a
series of six workshops that will
be held around the state later this
month to solicit opinions on the
future of forests in Florida The
dates, cities and locations are as
follows:
March 22 Milton Pen-
sacola Junior College, University
of Florida Bldg, Room 4902.
March 23 Tallahassee -
Eyster Auditorium, Conner Bldg.,
3125 ConnerBlvd.
March 24 Lake City -
Columbia County Extension Ser-
vice, 164 SW Mary Ethel Lane.
March 29 Tavares Lake


County Ag/Horticulture Ext. Ser-
vice, 30205 State Road 19.-
March 30 Palmetto- Mana-
tee County Ag Center/Fair-
grounds, Kendrick Auditorium,
1303 17th St. West.
March 31 Lantana Lan-
tana Recreation Center, 418 South
Dixie Highway.
The regional workshops will
' be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. and
will be lead by a professionalfacil-
itator.
A draft plan on the future of
forests in Florida is expected to be
posted on the DOF website next
fall, and the public will be asked
to comment on it.

Florida Citrus crop continues to decrease


The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) released the'
March citrus crop forecast for the
2004-2005 season, showing a
decrease from the February esti-
mate.
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture (USDA) released the
March citrus crop forecast for the
'2004-2005 season, showing a
decrease from the February esti-
mate.
The USDA expects the state's
orange crop to produce 153 mil-
lion boxes during the 2004-05 sea-


son, a decrease of 9 million from
February. The forecast for early
and midseason varieties is down
3 million boxes to a total of 81
million boxes, which includes 2.5
million boxes of Navels. This
decrease is in response to utiliza-
tion figures that are short of previ-
ous estimates. The Valencia esti-
mate is also down 6 million boxes
to 72 million boxes this season
due to historically small fruit size
and continued higher than nor-
mal fruit drop.
"So far the estimated decrease


in the'citrus crop has not impact-
ed the price that consumers are
paying for orange juice at the
store," said Andy LaVigne,-execu-
tive vice president/CEO of Florida
Citrus Mutual. "However, as
inventories continue to decrease
the higher fruit prices may eventu-
ally work their way through to the
consumers."
The Grapefruit estimate
remains unchanged at 13 million
boxes. For specialty fruit, the
USDA predicts 700,000 boxes of
Temples; 1.5 million boxes of tan-


gelos; and 4.5 million boxes of
tangerines, including 2.5 million
boxes of early varieties and 2 mil-
lion boxes of Honeys.
The Florida citrus industry has
a $9.1 billion economic impact to
the state, employs nearly 90,000
people and covers 750,000 acres
in the state.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948, is the state's largest citrus
grower's organization with more
than 11',000 grower members. For

tion SK as promulgated by the

sion.

tion to candidates for nominees
who possess expertise and or
experience in the businesses in
which the Company is currently
engaged or may engage in the
foreseeable future. These busi-
nesses include Agri Business,

Preference of consideration will
also be given to persons who have

grounds and experience with pub-


lic company governance. Finally,
Mr. Mutz noted that the Committee

holder wishing to recommend to
the Nominating Committee a can-
didate for election as a director

perhaps to another origin rooted in
the idea of "desisting (from work)."
The Lord, who asked about
healing a man who had been ill for
38 years on the "Sabbath." (John
5:ff) and He replied that He was
doing His fathers work. I have been
grateful to those who help heal,
keep order in the world, provide
essential services and continue our
lives that make it possible for us to
live in peace-- on the Sabbath.
What about eating and work-

"It's our contention that those

Act, so we believe it is either not
required, or we just don't have that
information," said Mr. Cudworth.
Mr. Coker said it would be a
mistake for the hospital to take that
position.
"The Writ issued by the judge
orders the hospital to provide that
data and if the hospital refuses to
do it, then the citizens of this.coun-
ty should be outraged," said Mr.
Coker. "This is a court order and if
they ignore it, then they certainly
have something to hide." .

Director of the Hendry County
Tourist Development Council Jeff
Barwick approached the commis-
sion about reconsidering a recre-
ational trail along the old railroad at
Goodno. A previous. feasibility
study suggested the most viable.
section for such a trail would be
from Sears south.
The commission agreed to
schedule a public hearing to
acquaint adjacent landowners with
the proposal, which could be

give abrief, inspirational message
about their lives. The Women of
Accomplishment Program is
sponsored by Palm Beach Com-
munity College with support from
the Pahokee, Belle Glade and
Clewiston Chambers.
To date, 100 women from the
Glades have been recognized for
their contributions towards our
area. Please mark your calendars
and plan to attend this year's
event. There will be a reception
following the ceremony where
you'll be able to mix with the
group and enjoy some substantial
treats.

unclean. He adds, "If your brother
is distressed because of what you
eat, you are no longer acting in
love. Do not, then, by your eating
destroy your brother for whom
Christ died (Romans 14:14ffD"
Here is a plea to not let our
understanding of religion alienate
us from those who also bear
Christ's image. The idea is to keep
our eyes on what is important to
respect and use faith to unite rather
than to divide. There is a thin line
between zealously keeping the
faith and being a fanatic. It affects
us not only in dietary matters but
also in other areas of life. One is
healthy and productive, the other
can divide and be destructive. One
supports and fosters devotion and
faith, the other isolates and is root-
ed in pride. The final law is a law of
love, that's what is "commanded."


The hospital maintains that they
have been fully open in regards to
providing U.S. sugar all documents
requested and even though the
hospital did turn over 5,000 pages
of documents, specified informa-
tion was not among them, forcing
U.S. Sugar to file the public infor-
mation lawsuit last week.
Apparently the 2oth Circuit
Court agreed with U.S. Sugar's
position that the requested infor-
mation is indeed public domain.
Mr. Cudworth did not say they
would outright refuse the court
order, only that their position dif-
fers from court's and that there
was a question as to whether that
requested information even exists.
The hospital has until April 15
to respond to the court's order to

ments.

The commission is consider-
ing renewal contracts for the assis-
tant county administrator, county
engineer and public safety director.
The contracts were tabled till the
April 12 meeting so the board can
consider salaries.
The commission's regular
meeting for March 22 has been
cancelled since three of the five
commissioners will be unable to
attend and there would be no quo-

"Why was this man born
blind," they asked Jesus? "In order
that the works of God might be
revealed in him." The work of God
was not just the healing, but 'also
the evidence' of the blindness of
those who would not accept that
God could do a new thing, that God
could welcome a stranger, that
God could save a sinner, that God
could love a leper, that God could
be made known in a loaf and a
cup, a cross and a tomb, or even
that a man born blind could help
the leaders of the people see how
God was working in their midst.

said.
Three have already been hired
by drywall contractors at a rate of
$9 per hour, Mr. Caban said.
Already the state director of
Workforce Development is eying
the program as a prototype for the
kinds of short term training cours-
es best designed to help farm
workers make the transition from
manual labor to skilled trades. In
response to a question, Mr. Caban
said opportunities exist for other
training programs, either in other
construction-related industries or
perhaps the hospitality industry.
"We've done a little through
the unions- and they've shown.
some interest," Mr. Caban said.
The biggest challenge for the
program so far,he said, has been
transportation, noting that in
many cases those enrolled in the
farm worker program do not have
their own transportation. In the
case of the drywall class, Mr.

How is God working in our
midst? I've asked myself that ques-
tion a lot since I came here almost
three years ago. I believe that God is
calling us into a time of change as
we embrace a God who is bigger
and more diverse than we can
imagine. In order for that to hap-
pen, we need to see with new eyes.
We need to welcome the stranger
in our midst. We need to not just
tell people how God has worked in
our life, but also ask them how God
has worked in theirs. And we can't
just be about our church or our fel-
lowship, but we need to- join
together as God's church in the fel-
lowship of the entire family of God.
And maybe, just maybe, the accu-
mulated mud that obscures God's
truth will be washed away, and a lit-
tle more light will stream through
the windows of our souls.


Caban said, they were fortunate
to locate a contractor who was
not only willing to transport the
men, but provided two employ-
ees to instruct the class as well.
Mr. Caban said he is consider-
ing offering a program for block
masons and worked on a welding
program five years ago.
I "Construction demand is
going to be awesome," Mr. Caban
said, referring to projections that
pending comprehensive plan
amendments in western Hendry
County, western Glades and the
city of LaBelle are projecting pop-
ulation in the area to grow to
10,0,000.
The short-term training pro-
gram can fill a need for employ-
ees to participate in'that construc-
tion boom and assist the counties
in preparing for it.
"It satisfies the needs of the
community for workers," Mr.
Caban said, adding that the ability
to adapt a curriculum to the
needs of the community, is the
reason why ongoing efforts to
construct the West Technical Edu-
cation Center are so important.


read a proclamation that would
later be read into the Congres-

Taylor was the valedictorian of
her class at Harlem Academy and
the first woman officer on the
Clewiston Police Department. She
earned a degree in political sci-
ence from Palm Beach Commu-
nity College in 1986 and in 1994
was appointed to the Hendry
County Board of County Commis-
