Question for commissioners


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
City Commission has always been
a panel made up of public repre-
sentatives who are expected to
help manage the city, act as dele-
gates and liaisons for the people of
Clewiston, and keep an eye open
for potential problems arising
from within the city limits.
What may surprise some citi-
zens is the fact that these duties
have been fulfilled consistently for
decades, without compensation


for the commissioners' efforts.
The city commissioners, including
the mayor, do not get paid.
On the other hand, many oth-
ers believe that the Clewiston City
Commission was established to
operate without expecting to be
paid, and many feel there is no
reason that should be changed.
Nevertheless, the current commis-
sion has voted to consider imple-
menting a new compensation pol-
icy that will take advantage of
$76,660 that was budgeted for the
purpose of providing commission


salaries and benefits. -
The Commission originally
expressed interest in salary and
benefits at the recent Fiscal Year
2006 budget workshops. A staff
memo was prepared and distrib-
uted by City Manager Wendell
Johnson that gave specific back-
ground information pertaining to
the issue.
The memo cited several very
compelling arguments in favor of

establishing commission com-
pensation, highlighted by a survey
of the surrounding area, which


Hmm, hmm: Good food, good times


revealed that comparably sized
cities all provide both compensa-
tion and benefits to the elected
officials. The cities surveyed
included Pahokee, Belle Glade,
South Bay, Moore Haven, Okee-
chobee, LaBelle, Sebring, and.
Lake Placid.
< The commission compensa-
tion survey from Aug. 18 provided
salary ranges of each mayor and
city commissioner in all of the
cities listed. The highest paid offi-
cials were in LaBelle and Belle
Glade. Compensation for the

Softball tourneys to benefit Nall


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Softball
enthusiasts throughout the
region have been given a great
opportunity to help raise much
needed funds for charitable caus-
es by simply doing something
they love play softball.
A benefit softball tournament
and barbecue will be held at the
Five Acre Field at the Elks' Lodge
property on Francisco Street on
Saturday, Oct. 8. The benefit will
feature softball and a cow flop
contest, and a barbecue dinner
that will be provided for a $10 per
plate donation. The dinner plate
will include ribs, macaroni salad,
green beans, and rolls.


This fundraiser is being held
to benefit Robert Nail, who was
severely injured in a hit and run
motorcycle accident. The tragic
accident caused severe internal
and spinal cord injuries, and
resulted in paralysis to Mr. Nall,
who was airlifted to Tampa for
emergency treatment.
Doctors have told him he may
never walk again, but family and
friends have not given up hope
that miracles do happen, and are
raising money for physical thera-
py and rehabilitation, as well as
support systems and medical
costs for Robert and his family.
The city of Clewiston got into
the act of softball fundraising as
well. The Police Department host-
ed a softball tournament for the


victims of Hurricane Katrina and
Hurricane Rita. The tournament
was held at the Clewiston city ball
fields on Saturday, Oct. 1,'and
involved teams from Belle Glade,
Clewiston, and Moore Haven.
On Sunday, Oct. 9, additional
fundraising will be held for hurri-
cane victims at the John Boy
Auditorium in Clewiston. The
Benefit Concert of Patriotism and
Praise will begin at 7 p.m.
"There are heroes among us
- everyday people who make
our lives better just by doing their
jobs, going the extra mile, and
caring about others. We have

FY 2006
budget finalized
By Patty Brant
On Sept. 27, Hendry County
commissioners approved a final
budget and millage for FY 2006.
The 2006 millage rate is 8.75,
down from 9 mills.
The board also accepted
finalized salaries of county
constitutional officers and
elected school superintend-


mayor of LaBelle was $1,092.67
per month, which equated to
$13,*112 annually; the city com-
missioners were significantly
lower at $455.25 per month, or
$5,463 per annum.
Even the second smallest of the'
cities on the survey, Moore Haven,
provided above-average- salary
($525/mo for mayor and $475/mo
for council) and state retirement
benefits to members of its city
council.

Breast cancer awareness


By Alice Blandfrod,
MS, ARNP
CLEWISTON October is
breast cancer awareness
month; This year more than
211,000 new cases of breast
cancer are expected. in the
United States. Recent findings
from the National Cancer Insti-
tute indicate that an American
woman has a one-in-eight
chance of developing breast
cancer during her lifetime.
A diagnosis of breast cancer
is alarming, but the good news
is that most women recover
from it. Improvements in
breast cancer detection have
helped to limit the harmful
potential of this disease. In fact,
during the last decade, the
majority cases of breast cancer
reported in' the U.S. were small,
very treatable, early-stage
tumors. Overall about 83 per-
cent of women survive breast
cancer, as shown by recent
five-year survival statistics. If


breast cancer is detected and
treated in the early stages, the
chances of complete 'recovery
are even better.
Early detection is the key to
survival. An Early Breast Can-
cer Detection Plan should
include:
Clinical breast exam every
two years from ages 20-39,
then every year thereafter.
Monthly self-examination
beginning at age 20.
Baseline mammogram by
age 40.
Mammogram ,every year
thereafter.
Low-fat diet, regular exer-
cise,, and avoid smoking or
drinking.
While a family history of
breast cancer in the family may
lead to increased risk, most
breast cancers are diagnosed in
women with no family history.
Special populations at risk for
breast cancer include minority
and older women.
African-American women
have a higher breast cancer


death rate than any other racial
or ethnic population. Many
women over the age of 60 feel
that screening for breast cancer
is not necessary. On the con-
trary, women over the age of 60
are more at risk for, not less, for
breast cancer.
In an effort to encourage
women to have an annual
mammography screening, the
third Friday in October has
been designated as National
Mammography Day. It was first
proclaimed by President Clin-
ton in 1993. On this day, or
throughout the month, we
encourage women to make a
mammography appointment.
In 2005, National Mammogra-
phy Day will be celebrated Oct.
21.
Many of you.have friends or
family members affected by
,breast cancer. We lost a col-
league in the healthcare commu-
nity this year to the disease. It is

Tailgate Kickoff
Just in time for the new football season, the HRMC
Employees joined together in a tailgate party Friday,
Sept. 23 to kickoff the HRMC Foundation. With the sup-
port of the Employee Activities Committee and lip

and Floyd Daugherty, HRMC employees raised $500,
which they donated to the HRMC Foundation. The
Employee Activities Committee also raised $1,000,
which they gave to American Red Cross on Saturday to
help Katrina storm victims. From left to right. George

The. gifts that I have been offered


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph, D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I received a notification that I
had won a prize; a car, two
round trip airline tickets, a wide
screen color television or cash.
The certificate guaranteeing that
I had won came with a tele-
phone number; which I was to
call. The last time I received
such a certificate (it was for a
new Pontiac) I called them as
requested collect.
I figured that if they could
afford to give me a new Pontiac,
surely they could afford my tele-
phone call to claim the .prize.
What seemed to be a young per-
son answered when the opera-
tor told them they had a collect
call. The person had to check
with someone, apparently,
because there was a delay and
some whispering, it seems my:
collect call caught them off
guard. Then the young lady told
the operator that they did not
receive collect calls. I wasn't sur-
prised. I had my doubts about
the offer in the first place. I


believe the adage that goes. "If it
sounds to be too good to be
true, it probably is."
They reminded me of some
people in the Bible. There is a
parable in Matthew's gospel
about a landowner who planted
. a vineyard and left it in the care
of some tenants. He sent his ser-
vants to collect the rent due to
him. They were beaten and one
was killed. He sent others but-
they were treated the same way.
Finally, the landowner sent his
son, saying, "They will respect
my son." But no, the son is killed
as well. (Matthew 21:33-43)
They do it in hopes of having
the vineyard to themselves even
though it is not theirs. Unscrupu-
lous "giveaway" programs also
do so in hopes of getting some-
thing not rightfully theirs -
requesting money for the pay-
ment of "taxes" or "delivery
fees" or some other charge that
extracts money from persons on
the false hope of a windfall that
is never really there to be gained.
The Biblical parable asks,
"When the owner of the vine-
yard comes, what will he do to


those tenants?" Those who
.were listening to Jesus tell. him
that they will. come to a miser-
able end. I keep getting offers to
involve myself in literally mil-
lions because someone in some
part of Africa has died an
untimely death and no heirs can
be located. The message comes
almost daily on my computer
about how someone is a repre-
sentative or family member of
their dear deceased who wanted
his money to go to a worthy
cause and, (guess what!),
they've selected me!
Figuring it may be of interest
to the Fraud Department of my
Internet server, I forward it and
received a polite thank-you note.
I hope enough others will do
likewise so they can, get back to
the host and say, "cut it out!" In
reality, it would be very simple
- if someone has something for
me, just enclose the check in an
envelope and mail it. I will take it
from there.
I also get telephone calls
about special offers, fantastic
deals, bargains that will never be
offered again and once- in -a life-


time opportunities. I tell them to
mail me the information and I
will look at it. Sometimes I
receive information and then
reflect on it. Other times, noth-
ing is coming and I figure it is
just as well.
Then, once in a blue moon,
there comes a really free gift.
Sometimes it is a small sample
or token, sometimes something
needed, sometimes something I
can pass on to someone else.
The gift is really a gift and the
meaning of the giver is clear. I
am reminded that my vocation is
to give away what I have -
that's the purpose of the min-
istry, we give freely and uncondi-
tionally as we have relieved;
that's a joy and a privilege and a
blessing. There is a passage in
Romans that talks about the dif-
ference between real giving and
evil; how real giving is uncondi-
tional, free, without expecting in
return. That's God giving and
that is what we can do to, help
others; and what fills our hearts
whether we're the giver or
receiver too.

Former graduate


returning home


When Bill Fisackerly, IV grad-
uated from Clewiston High
School in 1981, even though
Bill's father was the pastor of
First United Methodist Church of
Clewiston,
becoming a
preacher
was the fur-
thest thing
from his
mind, but
that is exactly
what he
became. If -
you attended Bill
Clewiston Fisackerly
High in the
late 70s and early 80s you may
know this former Clewiston
Tiger as Bill Fisackerly.
But even if you were not one
of his fellow students you may
know Bill but by a different
name. In the early 80s he started
a Christian rock program on
Sunday mornings on WAFC-FM
106.3, but since "Fisackerly" is
such a mouthful and hard to
understand over the air waves
he chose the "air name" of "Alan
Williams" using his first name as
his last and his middle name for
his first.
While Bill was attending high
school in Clewiston, he also
worked at the Clewiston News,
first in the darkroom and pho-
tography department, then later
on the presses and in delivery.
After high school, he attended
Florida Southern College where
he initially majored in Broad-
casting with the intention of
becoming a Christian disc jock-
ey after completing his bache-
lor's degree.
It was part way through his
undergraduate program, he felt
the call to ministry'and switched
to a double major of Broadcast-
ing and Religion. After he gradu-


ated from Florida Southern in
1984, he married Kim Butcher
from Miami, and the newlyweds
moved to Atlanta where he
earned a Master of Divinity
degree from Candler School of
Theology at Emory University.
Bill and Kim have three children
Bethany, Allyson, and Wil
(William A. Fisackerly the V).
Bill has served as a pastor for the
United Methodist Church in Del-
tona, Sopchoppy, and Ochlock-
onee Bay Florida.
In 1995, Bill was appointed
to Esfero United Methodist
Church in Estero Florida and has
been their senior pastor ever
since moving to Estero. Since
moving to Estero Bill has helped
four different members of that
congregation to discover and
answer their own calls to min-
istry one of whom is Pastor
Thom Street who serves as the
pastor of First United Methodist
Church of Moore Haven.
Reverend Bill and Pastor
Thom have decided to switch
pulpits for one Sunday so this
Sunday, Oct. 9 Reverend Bill will
be preaching at First United
Methodist Church of Moore
Haven and Pastor Thom will
travel to Estero to fill the pulpit
there.
Services. at First United
Methodist Church of Moore
Haven are at 10 a.m. and the
church is located at 300 Avenue
L. and Third Street in Moore
Haven. There will be a potluck
lunch and fellowship time after
services and whether you went
to school with Bill, knew him
from church, or heard him on
the radio and would like to hear
him preach on Sunday you are
welcome to be a part of worship
and the fellowship time after
services.


From the Executive Editor


Taxpayers find rollback rate confusing


By Katrina Elsken
Executive Editor
It's budget time the time of
year when city, county and region-
al governments finalize the mill-
age rate for the new fiscal year.
Then, in accordance with state
law, they advertise their increase
as compared to the "rollback"
rate.
These advertisements tend to
be confusing to the average tax-
payer, whose only experience
with "rollback" often has to do
with television commercials for
department stores.
The government version of
rollback does not mean you get a
discount.
The rollback rate is based on
the amount that would have to be
collected in taxes to fund the pre-
vious year's budget, based on the
current property values.
However, local governments
are not funding last year's budget
- they are funding this year's
budget. And budgets do tend to
increase each year in response to
higher prices for electricity,
increases in salaries, increases in
fuel costs, etc.
So the rollback rate means they
look at the current property value
assessments, and then figure out
what they would have to collect in
millage to fund the 2004/2005
budget. Then they advertise the
2005/06 millage as an increase or
decrease over this "rollback" rate.
Millage is a term used to
describe ad valorem or property
taxes. One mill equals $1 in tax for
every $1,000 of property value.
The "rollback rate" informa-
tion is not particularly useful to
most taxpayers and in some cases
it can be downright confusing and
misleading.


For the homeowner, there are
two ways that property taxes can
increase. One way is if local gov-
ernment raises the millage rate, so
the homeowner is paying more
taxes per $1,000 of property value.
The other way taxes can
increase is if the assessed, taxable
property value is increased. Sky-
rocketing prices for home sales in
your. neighborhood can mean
your property value can increase,
even though you did not make any
improvements.
Advertising the rollback rate
does not really give the homeown-
er enough information to deter-
mine if their taxes are going up
and if so, exactly what is happen-
ing to cause their tax bill to
increase.
It is possible for tax millage to
increase and be advertised as a
decrease over the rollback. It is
possible for tax millage to
decrease and be advertised as an
increase over the rollback.
For example, imagine City A
has total property values of $10
million. In 2004 they levy 8 mills,
which brings in $80,000. A large.
factory is built, increasing total
property values to $15 million. So
the city officials set the tax rate at 6
mills, which brings in $90,000.
The rollback rate would be the
amount of millage it would take to
raise $80,000 based on property
values of $15 million 5.33 mills.
So a tax rate of 6 mills would be
advertised as an 11-percent
increase over the rollback rate,
even though the actual millage
rate decreased.
For another example, consider
City B. In 2004 the mythical City B
had total property values of $100
million, and levied 5 mills in taxes,
to bring in $500,000. But in 2005,
the city's widget plant and several


surrounding businesses burned to
the ground, cutting taxable prop-
erty values to $50 million. To make
ends meet, the city council votes
to double the tax rate to 10 mills to
bring in $500,000 in ad valorem
taxes. This means the homeown-
ers will see their tax millage dou-
ble. However, because total prop-
erty values decreased, the rollback
rate comparison shows this as a
zero-percent increase.
How can you tell what the gov-
ernment budgets will mean to
your tax bill? Find out the current
taxable property value of your
property. In many counties, you
can do this online. If you disagree
with the amount the property
appraiser has assigned to your
property, you have the right to
appeal to the adjustment board
that meets once a year to review
such cases.
Once you know the taxable
property value, determine if you
qualify for homestead exemption.
To qualify you must own the


home, it must be your primary
residence and you must be a legal
resident of Florida (voter registra-
tion is one way to confirm this). If
you qualify for homestead exemp-
tion, you do not pay taxes on the
first $25,000 of propertyvalue.
To find out how much your tax
bill will be, divide your taxable
property value by 1,000 and multi-
ply by the millage rate. For exam-
ple, if your home is valued at
$125,000, and the city tax rate is
set at 10 mills, with the homestead
exemption, you would pay $10 for
every $1,000 of property value.
This would mean you would pay
$1,000 in city taxes.
Don't forget that there are
many taxing agencies that include
your area and you have to pay
property taxes to each one. You
may be charged for city, county,
school board, water manage-
ment, mosquito-control district
and drainage district taxes. Each
taxing authority will set its own
millage.

Dinner Island dove season postponed


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) postponed Dove Season
on Dinner Island Ranch and
Okaloacoochee (OK) Slough
Wildlife Management Areas
(WMAs), according to hunting
and game managers. Both dove
fields are closed for the first
hunt, Saturday, Oct. 1, to comply
with federal baiting laws, but at
this time only Dinner Island
: Ranch WMA is closed for the
second hunt, Saturday, Oct. 8.
Signs are posted on these areas
to remind hunters of this post-
Sponement.
Weather and wet conditions
delayed the planting of these
fields, and some areas needed
replanting. This replanting
spawned concerns about bait-
ing, which forced postponement
to comply with federal baiting
laws. FWC area biologists will
monitor both Dinner Island and
OK Slough WMAs and reopen
them as conditions allow.
The dove permits are free
daily quota permits and refunds
aren't necessary.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
regulations state that an area is
considered to be baited for 10
days after removal of the bait. It
is unlawful to take or attempt to
take migratory game birds by
S the aid 'of baiting, which


includes placing, exposing, that could lure birds to, on or
depositing, distributing or scat- over an .area or hunting on or
tering salt, grain or other feed over any baited area.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues blog at http://newsblog.info/0902. It is a home-
town forum so visit the page as often as you would like and share your
comments (but no personal attacks or profanities, please). You can
also make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour
opinion line at 983-9140. Comments will be published in the newspa-
per as space permits.

NO APOLOGY FOR YOU, NEXT!: This for the person who called in
about the apology regarding the Friday night game at Glades Central.
If you were a professional player, you would have tried to score t6o.
An apology is not going to be made. You didn't apologize when you
cut the lights off on Pahokee. So, chalk it up as a loss and have a
blessed day.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. To be fair, a Clewiston coach
did call Speak Out to offer an explanation of what happened that
night.

HOSPITAL GETS THE BLAME TOO: We've been reading every-
thing that has been written in the local papers for sometime now
about the hospital. It appears that most of the articles written by
news people are hesitant to put any responsibility on the actions of
the members of the Hendry Count Hendry ountospital Board. (Inaudible) it's
others that are trying to destroy the hospital, nothing that the hospital
is doing wrong. It seems like after reviewing all the things that have
been written in the paper and listen to different people speak, that
the logical solution is for the chairman of the board to resign and
take his chances on any kind of criminal prosecution, so we can go
on. The hospital board will function fine.
Editor's note: Thanks for calling. This call'was somewhat gar-,
bled and we apologize if the call was not transcribed word for
word. We, of course, know that the coverage on the hospital has
been extensive, however, you referenced other newspapers. In
speaking for the Clewiston News, the recent seven-part series on
the hospital focused attention on all aspects of the dispute, to
include board members and their management company. Our
paper's mission is not to assign blame in ongoing investigations,
but to dispense information for our readers to make up their own
minds. We cannot speak for other publications, but feel as though
that mission was served. There has been no concrete resolution to
this problem, which is why we are considering this situation to be
an ongoing investigation and as new information is received, we
will pass it along to our readers in a manner associated with profes-
sional journalism.

I AGREE, BUT...: This is to add to the "Parenting starts at home."
Yes, I agree. Parenting does start at home. But what about these chil-
dren that get picked on because they wear skirts all the time, because
they dress different, because they don't have the money to buy
expensive shoes. I have children and yes, they are good children, and
they are tormented by kids at the Clewiston Middle School, because
we are a low-income family they don't have the name-brand shoes.
So, I think parenting does start at home, but also the teachers need to
listen to the kids when they come tell them somebody is teasing
them or tormenting them because of what they wear or what they
don't have.

SELF DEFENSE: This is to answer, "Parenting starts at home." She
says Clewiston Middle School's purpose is learning. I know that. My
daughter is an A/B honor roll. I'm not whining. These kids had seven
police reports and (nobody) did anything about it. My daughter tried
to defend herself from people and she still got a beating. And yes,
there's after school programs. I'm a concerned parent and I'm
* J involved in everything about my daughter and congratulations to her
that her kids never got in trouble, but daughter has never been in
trouble in school. These girls have been at her since last year and the
school has done nothing.

INVESTIGATION CALLED FOR: I'm calling in reference a con-
cerned parent as to all this that is going on at Clewiston Middle
School. There should really be an investigation. There's too many alle-
gations going on and somebody is not doing anyihinrg about it. Speak
Out, let every person that is getting touched with their, child in the
school, there is something going on and they are trying to cover it up.

MORE ATTENTION NEEDED: I'm calling about the article in the
paper about parenting starts at home. You're right, parenting does
start at home, but it's not just at home because your children goes to
.; school, he or she expects to get an education. I do have a child in the
eighth grade, which as been nothing but trouble for me, not her, but
the school system. I've gone up to the school, the school board
knows how I feel. I do.not send my child to school to fight, so this
person who called, no, it's not just the children. These teachers and
these principals need to pay attention to what's going on and stop
worrying about what the child is wearing. They need to worry about
what's going in the classroom. Because my child has asked teachers
for help and the teachers have turned their backs and not helped my
child. I do not appreciate saying that the caller needs to grow up and
stop whining, no. The school system here really stinks. I am not from
Clewiston. I am from up north and the school system here really
stinks.

Caring about
the welfare of all
To the editor:
The VFW Post 4185 and its
Ladies Auxiliary is a national
organization that believes in
assisting all veterans and
believes in helping those in need
and this truly is a "time of need".
The devastation and loss of
lives along the Gulf Coast caused
by Hurricane Katrina is beyond
comprehension. The possibility
of this happening in our area is
thought about, but usually dis-
missed because we have been
fortunate.
On behalf of the Ladies Auxil-
iary to VFW 4185 I want to take
this opportunity to thank all the
citizens, for the generous dona-
tions of items and cash made for
our "Support the Troops" proj-
ect. The response has been out-


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. I'm a bit
concerned with the latest news
about some virus that is spreading
from horses to dogs. From what I
heard, some dogs have even died
as a result. How serious is this
virus? What is it? Do dog owner's
in general have to be concerned?
Thanks Doc, Myron and Ethyl
Moses from Lake Worth.
A: Dear Myron and Ethyl. I've
been getting a lot of calls and ques-
tions -about this virus, and it seems
like many people are getting a bit
scared and confused. It is very
important to know the truth
behind this virus, so instead of
including a second question,
we're going to dedicate this
week's column to "Influenza Virus
Strain H3N8".
This virus is basically a flu type
of virus causing upper respiratory
disease. Influenza strain H3N8 is a
horse flu virus that is showing sim-
ilarities to another virus, that has
caused canine deaths in several
Florida greyhound racetrack facili-
ties. Recent study at the University
of Florida has shown close similar-
ities between these horse and dog
viruses, so that it is suspected that
the virus has jumped species! This
jump is very rare it usually takes
many strains of mutation for an
influenza virus to spread this way.
Influenza is not something
which dogs commonly get, but it
.has been, seen in horses for
decades. Dogs get kennel cough or
bordetella instead. The grey-
hounds affected presented initially
with kennel cough signs, but they
just got sicker, and had very high
infection counts in their white
blood cells.
These outbreaks in the grey-
hound kennel community actually
started in 1999, and although there
have been recent attacks, it does
not play a concern for the dog


standing. The thoughtfulness of
everyone in our community and
those as far away as Miami, Palm
Beach and Okeechobee is very
much appreciated.
Hurricane Katrina has
destroyed many homes and
businesses. Thousands of fami-
lies have been left homeless,
without jobs and totally desti-
tute. Some in the future will be
able to return to their normal
routine, but too many will
remain without for a long time.
We firmly believe that all of us
can help by donating to the Hur-
ricane Relief. The Ladies Auxil-
iary here in Clewiston is joining
our community in donating to
victims of the Hurricane and has
made the decision to divert
some items collected to be sent
to Mississippi and areas hit by
Katrina. We have already given a
full pickup truck load to Sheriff


Ronnie Lee to take to Mississip-
pi. The Ladies Auxiliary believes
no one would be offended by
our decision. All of the donations
were made by people who care
deeply about the welfare of oth-
ers, without discrimination, sol-
diers and victims of tragic cir-
cumstances.
We will also continue to ask
for donations to be sent to
troops, but we are now asking
that all donations include items
that can be sent for Hurricane
Relief. These families need food,
baby and children's items,
clothes, shoes, food for their
pets, water, cleaning supplies.
The donation boxes for "Support
the Troops" will be amended to
include "Hurricane Relief". We
will continue, in cooperation
with VFW Post Members, Men's
Auxiliary, other organizations
and your help to send items to


Hurricane victims and our
troops in Iraq and Afghanistan.
Sincerely:
Linda Meier
A big thank you
To the editor:
The Southern Bacon 4-H Club
would like to thank its members,
and their parents, the communi-
ty of Clewiston, and Palm Terrace
for their efforts in collecting sup-
plies for the many affected areas
of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.
We would also like to thank the
Pioneer Baptist Church for taking
the supplies to the hardest hit
areas. We would like to say how
proud we are of all the children.
They worked very hard and really
put their hearts into this project.
Our thanks and appreciation
from Southern Bacon leaders,
George Kline and
TammieWaldon.


Who should get



flu shot early?


Doc Savvy


owner in general. There has been
testing in the general canine popu-
lation where 97 percent have
shown antibody resistance to this
flu. So, that means that dogs have
been exposed to it, and have not
become ill. It could be that grey-
hounds may be more susceptible
due to poor genetic variation due
to inbreeding, and a poor immune
system.
Also there is no evidence to
suggest that it may spread to

ly by the CDC, as historically a few
other viruses that have jumped
species have had some tragic con-
sequences. For example: Avian flu,
SARS, and West Nile virus. These
three have all jumped species to
humans.

THIS IS STILL AMERICA: I've lived in Clewiston for over .25 years.
I've seen a lot of changes. I know we have a large Hispanic popula-
tion in town. But when our largest retailer begins to ignore the major-
ity of people who live in town by catering just towards the Hispanic
people, that is wrong. I know they need to get stuff the way we do,
but the last time I checked, English is still the American language,
supposed to be the official language. You go down the coffee aisle
and there's two brands of domestic coffee and 13 brands of Hispanic
coffee. Everywhere you go in that store, it appears strictly to the His-
panic people. This is wrong, I don't agree with it, and my God, if I
could find somewhere else to shop, I would. Time for a change in
management at our retail store.

SAVE THE PARADE: Guess what Clewiston? No homecoming
parade. My kids went to school in Clewiston and now she's in the
12th, but we don't have a homecoming parade. What can be done to
resolve this problem? We have had parades for years and years.

WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voted to reauthorize and
expand the Violence Against
Women Act (VAWA). Reautho-
rization of VAWA Was included in
the Department of Justice Appro-
priations Authorization Act. The
VAWA was last reauthorized in
2000 and is set to expire Sept. 30.
"This legislation has made a
valuable contribution to declin-
ing rates of violent crime and its
reauthorization demonstrates
our continued commitment to
strengthen enforcement and pro-
tect our families," said Congress-
woman Harris.
The VAWA, passed by the
U.S. House, extends core pro-
grams aimed at fighting domes-
tic violence, and makes improve-
ments to enhance the ability of
law enforcement officials to
domestic violence, dating vio-
lence, sexual assault, and stalk-
ing. The legislation was made


gender-neutral and expanded to
address the problem of violence
against children and youth by
including programs for college
campuses and assistance to'
youth who are themselves vic-
tims of violence. '
"This legislation has been
effective and I am confident its
expansion is another positive
step forward to prevent future
violence and the detrimental
impact it has on families and our
society," concluded Harris.
The Violence Against Women
Act:
Reauthorizes levels of fund-
ing for rape crisis centers, and
efforts to combat violent crimes
on campuses.
* Places special victim assis-
tants in local law enforcement
agencies to serve as liaisons
between law enforcement and
victims.
Improves access to courts
for teenagers.


Weekend crashes claim two lives


By Patty Brant

Hendry County's traffic fatality
count for the year jumped once
again when two men died in relat-
ed accidents this past weekend.
The actual number is debated.,
but it stands at 22-23.
In the first crash, which
occurred about 1:50 a.m., Oct. 2,
on SR 25 (U.S. 27) 0.9 miles north
of SR 80, a 1998 Ford traveling
northbound on SR 25 (U.S. 27)
veered off the road onto the east
side shoulder at a private drive-
way, then traveled across both
northbound lanes onto the medi-
an. The 19.98 Ford continued back
and forth across the northbound


lanes before rolling over in the
outside lane. It then rolled over on
the east shoulder twice, coming
to a final rest on the driver's side
facing south.'
A passenger, was pinned
underneath the rear driver's side
where he expired. Three other
passengers were transported to
Lee Memorial Hospital by Air
Med. They were: Jose Escal, 44,
Fernando Lopez, 23, Faustino
Ramirez, 24. The identity of the
deceased has not been released,
pending notification 'of next of
kin. It is unknown'who was driv-
ing the vehicle.
A fifth passenger died when he
was struck by another vehicle.
German P. Fuentes, age


unknown, left the crash and was
running westbound across both
northbound lanes of the highway.
He crossed the median, running
into the southbound lanes and
into the path of a 2002 Dodge,
driven by Ismeldo Fernandez-
Flecha, 32, of Hialeah. Mr. Fernan-
dez-Flecha's front left bumper
struck the victim, whose head
then struck the van's windshield.
Mr. Fuentes expired at the scene..
Glades County was also the
scene of a traffic fatality that day.
Joseph R. Risley IV, 33, of Muse,
died when his 2003 Ford pick up
truck left the road. FHP reports
that Mr. Risley was northbound
on CR 720, 13 miles east of Moore
Haven, when, "for unknown rea-
-sons" his truck traveled onto the
east shoulder with its right
wheels. He then steered left to re-
enter the road and crossed the
road, traveling onto the west
shoulder. He then steered right
and his truck began to rotate
clockwise across the road and
onto the east shoulder where it
rotated sharply clockwise and


overturned to its right.
The vehicle came to a rest on
its left side, facing west. Mr. Risley,
who was not wearing a seatbelt,
suffered fatal injuries and expired
at the scene. The crash occurred
at approximately 2 a.m. Oct. 2.
In yet another serious crash
this past weekend, during the
early morning hours of Saturday,
Oct. 1 a 19-year-old man suffered
critical injuries in Glades County
on SR 25 (U.S. 27) south of SR 29.
It was another one-vehicle crash.
Steven Brandon Jackman was
transported to Lee Memorial Hos-
pital in critical condition.
According to the FHP report,
Mr. Jackman was southbound on
SR 25 at 5:08 a.m. when he fell
asleep. His 2003 Ford F250 veered
onto the west side shoulder, turn-
ing in a counter-clockwise direc-
tion; then veered back onto the
road, overturning onto its top.
The vehicle then slid and contin-
ued to travel sideways across the
two southbound lanes, coming to
,a final rest on its top, blocking
both southbound lanes.

Program has
pros and cons
By Patty Brant
LABELLE Prison over-
crowding has been an issue for
years, defying solutions. Hendry
County is considering imple-
mentation of one possible solu-
tion, the state's Pretrial Release
Program. The idea has apparent-
ly met with some success in
Florida, according to 20th Circuit
Chief Judge Hugh Hayes. The
judge appeared before the
Hendry County Commissioners
Tuesday, Sept. 27, to plead his
case for the program.
According to Judge Hayes,
Collier, Lee and Charlotte Coun-
ties are already using the pro-
gram. However, bail bondsman
Kirk Jameson brought attention
to the program as applied in
Atlanta, Ga. He presented a video
of a news broadcast that pointed
out numerous problems there,
including the release of violent
felons and a lack of monitoring
participants. Mr. Jameson
adamantly opposed the pro-
gram, saying the program has
"failed miserably in several differ-
ent states."
Judge Hayes countered that
this state is a lot more "conserva-
tive" in its use of the program. He
said the 20th Circuit program
extends only to misdemeanor
arrests and possibly some third
degree felonies no violent.
offenders are considered. Eligi-
bility requirements for the
Hendry program have not been
completed, but in general, those
eligible may not be a flight risk;
may not have been arrested for a
.violent crime; must have a job
and may not be considered a
"threat to the community."
In the pretrial release pro-
gram, the participant does not
have to post bond but they must
meet certain conditions for
release. If they do not comply
with those conditions, a deputy
is sent to pick them up. Current-
ly, when a person is arrested and
posts bond, a bail bondsman
goes out to retrieve them if they
do not appear for court.
The chief judge said the pro-
gram helps the judge by desig-
nating only one contact for infor-
mation on that prisoner.
County Judge Jim Sloan said
the program could be a "bridge
between releasing someone on
their own recognizance (ROR)
arid bonding out." The choice is
up to the judge's discretion. He
explained that a pretrial release
officer would interview every-
one arrested before they go to
first appearance with the judge.
At the present time, >at first
appearance, the judge gets infor-
mation from the booking sheet
and National Crime Information'
Computer (NCIC), which is not
always complete. Often, Judge-
Sloan said, the NCIC report does
not provide the disposition of pre-
vious arrests. The pretrial release
officer will double check on that


information, the individual's
employment, family situation, his
or her contact with the commu-
nity, the number of years they've
lived here and their potential
threat to the community. This
information will help the judge
decide between his options:
Denying bond, setting bond, ROR
or pretrial release. This same pre-
trial release officer will monitor
the offender. The pretrial release
officer would work Monday
through Friday, doing weekend
cases on Monday morning.
Judge Sloan said that the pro-
gram would not preclude eligible
people from bonding out before
first appearance, if they can.
Generally, in Hendry County
the offender would be required
to report in once a week. The
pretrial release officer will moni-
tor him or her by calling their job
site and making sure they are
updated on their court date. If
they do not show up for court,
the sheriff's office will send a
deputy to pick them up.
Judge Sloan said the specifics
have yet to be worked out. If
approved, the program won't
take effect until January 2006.
Time is needed to hire and train
someone for the position. The
program will also require an
inter-local agreement between
the court and the county. The
pretrial release officer would be
an employee of Circuit Court
Administrative Office, paid by the
county. The sheriff's office will
provide the space.
Judge Sloan said the program
has been used in other counties
and "appears successful enough
to maintain."
Judge Hayes told the com-
missioners that Sarasota County
saved $1 million in one year and
expects that Hendry County can
save some $200,000 the first year.
Judge Sloan agreed that the pro-
gram should be able to. pay for.
itself. Hendry County averages
10-15, sometimes 20 bookings
per day. It costs $55-$60 per day
to house an inmate in the
Hendry County Jail, with an aver-'
age stay of about 45 days. That's
approximately $2,700 for one
inmate that could be saved
through the pretrial release pro-
gram. Overall, he expects the
program to be cheaper than
building a new jail.
Judge Sloan sited an example
of who might be eligible for the
program. Say someone is arrest-
ed for felony driving with a sus-
pended license. This person has
a family and a job, but can't
make bond and is not consid-'
ered a threat to the community. If
they remain in jail, it will deprive
the family of income while
they're incarcerated. This person
might be a candidate for pretrial
release with some conditions,
like having a plan to get to work
(since they cannot legally drive
themselves).
For the time being, the county
commission has postponed vot-
ing on the program to gather
information and work on the
required inter-local agreement.

USDA extends dairy disaster assistance


GAINESVILLE Dairy farm-
ers who experienced production
and spoilage losses caused by
last year's devastating i hurri-
canes still have time to sign-up
for the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's (USDA) 2004 Dairy Dis-
aster Assistance Payment Pro-
gram (DDAP), announced Kevin
Kelley, state executive director
for USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA). The new deadline for
dairy farmers to apply for DDAP
is Oct. 10.
"The original Sept. 9 sign-up
deadline has been extended to
Oct. 10, and any dairy producer
interested in signing up for the
program should visit their local
FSA office as soon as possible,"
said Kelley.
"Last year, hurricane Charley,
Frances, Ivan and Jeanne severe-
ly affected our dairy producers


in Florida. This program will
provide much-needed financial
relief to producers who suffered
dairy production and milk
spoilage losses," he said.
The DDAP program provides
up to $10 million to assist dairy
producers who experienced
losses due to the 2004 hurri-
canes in certain portions of fol-
lowing states: Alabama, Florida,
Georgia; Louisiana, Mississippi,
North Carolina, and South Car-
olina. Sign-up began Aug. 15,
2005. The new application dead-
line will be 14 calendar days
after the publication of the
DDAP program final regulation
in the Federal Register.
,The 2004 Dairy Disaster Assis-
tance Payment Program is
authorized by the Military Con-
struction Appropriations and
Emergency Hurricane Supple-


mental Appropriations Act of
2005. Many dairy producers
incurred devastating decreases
in production due t.' catm ii : '-
es, stress on l p ,:,.l i : ..
and milk that had. to be dumped
due to lack of electricity, closed
milk plants and damaged con-
tainment equipment. DDAP will
help address dairy producers'
2004 calendar-year losses by
providing payments to. offset
part of the commercially mar-
keted milk losses incurred in the
United States.
To be eligible, the loss must
have occurred in a county
declared a disaster by the presi-
dent in 2004 due to hurricanes.
Dairy producers in counties con-
tiguous to an approved county
are not eligible. Applicants must
provide adequate proof of the
dairy operation's commercial


production, including any
dumped production, from July
through October 2004. Appli-
cants must dlso c,.rtif that loss-
es'for which compensation is
claimed were hurricane-related.
Payments will begin soon
after sign-up ends. Each eligible
dairy operation's payment will
be calculated by multiplying the
eligible pounds by the average
price received for commercial
milk production during the eligi-
ble months. In the event avail-
able funds are insufficient to
compensate eligible producers,
eligible losses above 20 percent
will be paid at the maximum per
pound rate and losses below 20
percent will be made at a rate
that will exhaust the available
funds that remain following pay-
meht of eligible losses at the
'higher level.

How to consume an entire elephant


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
At a seminar, we were chal-
lenged with the question, "How do
you eat an entire elephant?" One of
the best '
answers we ?
came up with
is, "One bite at 'l
timee" .
Many times '
in life we.
encounter ele-.
phant size
problems or sit-
uations that can Pastor John
be overpower- Hicks
ing. If we try to
deal with everything at once, we
can be overwhelmed. If we think
about eating the whole elephant at
once we might sink into inactivity
in the face of such a Goliath task.
There is a reason why 12-step
programs push the thought, "One
day at a time". Many times, about
the only way we will make it
through or be able to over come is
to take things one day at a time.
Sometimes it's one hour at a time
or even one minute at a time. But,
step-by-step, bite-by-bite, eventual-
ly progress is made, and before too
long the situation is whittled down
into something manageable.
In light of the hundreds of thou-
sands who lost their homes in the
recent hurricanes, it's easy to be
overwhelmed, and wonder what
we could do to make a difference. I
like Habitat for Humanity's state-
ment, "We are making a difference
one nail at a time."
It's along the lines of a story that
many of us are familiar with called,
"The Star Fish Story", adapted
from The Star Thrower by Loren
Eiseley.
While walking along a beach,
an elderly gentleman saw some-
one in the distance moving like a


dancer. He smiled to himself at the
thought of someone who would
dance to the day, so he walked
faster to catch up. As he got closer,
he noticed that it was young man,
and what he was doing was not
dancing at all. The young man was
leaning down, picking something
up and throwing it into the ocean.
He came closer still and called
out, "Good morning! May I ask
what it is that you are doing?" The
young man paused, looked up,
and replied "Throwing starfish into
the ocean."
The old man smiled, and said, "I
must ask, then, why are you throw-
ing starfish into the ocean?" To this,
the young man replied, "The sun is
up and the tide is going out. If I
don't throw them in, they'll die."
Upon hearing this, the elderly
observer commented, "But, young
man, do you not realize that there
are miles and miles of beach and
there are starfish all along every
mile? You can't possibly make a dif-
ference!"
The young man listened polite-
ly. Then he bent down, picked up
another starfish, threw it back into
the ocean, past the breaking waves
and said, "It made a difference for
that one."
Each little bit that each of us
gives makes a large difference in
the life of those we touch. Each bite
we take reduces the elephant sized
situation. Each one we help
"makes a difference for that one".
In the name of God.and for the
*blessing of God's people and our-
selves, take a bite make a differ-
ence. Our little becomes much
when placed in our Master's
hands, and each step we take
brings us closer to God's heart for
His people. '
Added note: As one part of the
many things our community is
doing to make a difference, we are
having an evening of Patriotism


and Praise to benefit hurricane vic-
tims on Sunday, Oct. 9, at 7 p.m., at
John Boy Auditorium. Come and
be blessed by special music and
praise from individuals and
churches from all over our com-


munity, and help make a difference
in the lives of those devastated by
sharing in a special love offering.
There are also special drop boxes
at each of our local banks for dona-
tions. Be blessed and be a blessing!

12 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, October 6, 2005


City
Continued From Page 1
According to Mr. Johnson's
report, Clewiston is part of a very
remote minority of communities
that receive no compensation,
which comprises less than five per-
cent of Florida's 408 incorporated
communities.
Mr. Johnson gave a recommen-
dation for salary levels based on
average levels of similar sized cities
in Florida. The average monthly
compensation for similar sized
cities was $600 per month for
mayor and $400 per month for
commissioners. Using that recom-
mendation, the Clewiston City
Commissioners are now consider-
ing those average numbers, and
are also assessing the necessity for
benefits.
Salary compensation would
create a $26,400 impact on the city
budget at the proposed levels. The
remaining $50,260 would be avail-
able for benefit packages. Salary
compensation, therefore, would
only be drawn from one third of


BOCC
Continued From Page 1
Old Oxbow
golf course
Commissioners heard a presen-
tation from the grassroots effort to
reestablish the old Oxbow Golf
Course. Jack Zorn and Scott
Wegscheid, representing Save
Oxbow for Recreation (SOAR),
explained the group's background,
its vision for the future of that prop-
erty, its plan to attain that vision and
identified the benefits of a public
golf course.
The golf course was a center of
activity and economic engine for
LaBelle from its beginning in the
1970s and was a "vital part of the
community," Mr. Zorn said. The
course, SOAR members noted,
was very profitable, but fell victim
to its owner's financial problems.
SOAR was seeking a moratori-
um on any comprehensive plan
land use or zoning change on any
part of the course's 18 holes until a
study can be completed and citi-
zens' input received.
SOAR would like the county to
undertake:
A profitability estimate analy-


the total amount of funds set aside
for the commission during the
budget workshops.
The potential benefits package
was the more contentious issue at
the regular commission meeting of
Sept. 26, during which Mr. John-
son's report was publicized.
According to the report, each of the
cities surveyed, except for Moore
Haven and Belle Glade, provided
health insurance; four out of the
eight cities also provided life insur-
ance.
There is not an apparent press-
ing need for the benefits package,
since all of the commissioners
have employment outside of their
elected positions, and are in a posi-
tion to already receive benefits else-
where.
Commissioner Julio Rodriguez
emphasized the need for some
kind of compensation for the com-
missioners, and seemed to dwell
less upon the necessity of an exten-
sive benefits package.
"Looking at this year's elec-
tions, for which we only had three
candidates submit names for the
commission, there needs to be an


sis,
*Appraisal analysis,
Course restoration analysis,
Financing and grant analysis,
Study of the impact to the
local economy, tax base and
tourism.
In addition, SOAR believes the
cost of operation should be
explored and an appraisal of all the
concerned parcels with the cost of
returning them to their golf course
state, along with financial options
including grant monies. The group
wants a workshop with commis-
sion members, and a sharing of the
findings with residents.
They argued that a golf course
will increase tourism, provide jobs,
add to the tax base and improve the
general quality of life for residents.
They would like to see the golf
course reestablished as a public
course, run by the county with a
PGA pro in charge. They also argue
that a.golf course actually increases
the value of surrounding properties.
SOAR presented a petition with
615 signatures and said they have
the support of the Hendry County
Economic Development Council,
Port LaBelle Units 4. and 5 Home-
owners Associations and are seek-
ing the support of the Hendry
County Tourism Development
Council. They argue that the best


incentive to encourage more peo-
ple to volunteer to serve on this
commission," said Commissioner
Rodriguez. "I think that if 95 per-
cent of Florida's cities have com-
pensation for their municipal gov-
ernments, then it should be done
here too, to continue having a pro-
fessional commission. It's very
important that we entertain this
idea," he said.
Because each of the current
commissioners was elected with-
out the expectation to receive.com-
pensation, some believe that if
compensation is to be implement-
ed, it should become active after
the current commission is replaced
or reelected. Commissioner
Melanie McGahee emphasized this
idea, suggesting also that the bene-
fits package be considered closely
before the commission votes on it.
"I do believe the board should
be compensated, but it should
wait. We all are used to doing this
job only for the satisfaction of hav-
ing done it-- we don't expect to
be paid," she said.
Commissioner Rodriguez reit-
erated his (and possibly the


use for those properties is their
original intended use.
The old golf course property,
was auctioned off about a year-
and-a-half ago in separate parcels.
Several months ago those new
property owners petitioned the
county commission to rezone their,
property residential from its current
recreation zoning. The owners
were required to pay for the feasi-
bility study for a comp plan change
that would allow a zoning change
to high density residential. County
'Attorney Kate English told the
board that about two-thirds of that
money had already been raised.
If the county decided to follow
up on SOAR's request, at least
some of the properties in question
would have to be acquired through
eminent domain. Complicating the
issue is that part of the properties
are in Glades County, which has yet
to be contacted on the issue.
The comp plan change request-
ed by the current stakeholders
won't be submitted to the. state
until January and will take eight
months to a year to complete. Ms.
English suggested that SOAR's
request could be explored concur-
rently, but that the SOAR group
should be required to pay for any
studies necessary..
John Wanklyn, who owns sev-


board's) intentions as commis-
sioners. "I'm not doing this for the
money. I'm very proud of this
board, and because times have
changed, I believe it's time we
should be compensated for time
we spend," he said.
City Attorney John Yaun said the
original city charter provided for
compensation, but that provision
had been'editorially deleted when
the charter and code of ordinances
was updated at some unspecified
date. He emphasized that the com-
mission has to enact an ordinance
in order to "implement the policy,
and recommended that they move
to approve the ordinance at the
current suggested amounts.
Since they would still be able to
conduct public hearings to discuss
dollar amounts of salary and bene-
fits before the policy is set in stone,
the commission could approve the
.ordinance and then hold public
hearings at later meetings, and
moved to do so by a unanimous
vote Sept. 26. The first public hear-
ing will be held at the regular meet-
ing in October.


eral of the properties in question,
called SOAR's effort "too little too
late" and felt it was unlikely a golf
course would make a profit. Resi-
dent Cliff Miller, an avid golfer, felt
that the Port LaBelle Development
District should be the entity to run a
golf course there,. should it be
reestablished.
In the end, Commissioner Dar-
rell Harris moved the issue be
tabled for study and that SOAR
bring more information. The board
will take up the question again at its
next regular meeting.


In other business:
Hendry County Library Coop-
erative Director Christopher Keuch-
mann submitted paperwork to
apply for the annual state Aid to
Libraries grant, which the board
approved. He also announced that
he will be resigning to move to
Louisiana.
A request by Director of
Grants and Special Projects Ron
Zimmerly to propose the Caloosa-
hatchee River be designated as one
of the nation's top 10 endangered
rivers was tabled.
The next regular county com-
mission meeting will be at Montura
Clubhouse at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday,
Oct. 11.

they saw the driver, Mr. Dixon, pull
over on 10th Street. Clark got into
back seat and they began to drive
away. Witnesses said they heard
shots from inside the car and saw
Clark holding a firearm. They also
said they saw Mr. Dixon slump over,
and Mr. Williams exit the vehicle,
run in front of the car and down
Kentucky Street before collapsing.
Investigators from the State
Attorney's Office, Hendry County
Sheriff's Office and Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement (FDLE)
collaborated on the case. FDLE got
an arrest warrant for Clark, who
was located at the Mayo Correc-
tions Institution in North Florida.
He was arrested there May 13,
2004, and transported to Hendry
County, where he was held on
$250,000 bond. Clark pled not
guilty at his arraignment July 19,
2004.
Judge Frederick Hardt presided
over the three-day trial. Mr. Clark

office. Prosecutors based their case
on evidence including the fact that
the bullets that killed the two vic-
tims were found to be .38-caliber
and both came from the same gun.
Investigators also matched DNA
from scrapings found under the fin-
gernails of one of the victims with
Clark's DNA. The scrapings point-
ed to some type of struggle and
placed Clark in the vehicle, said Ms.
Gerlach.
Clark has a previous conviction
for burglary. Because he is a con-
victed felon, samples of his DNA
were on file with the Department
of Corrections. A second DNA sam-
ple was taken from Clark at the
Hendry County Jail, which con-
firmed the match, putting Clark in
the vehicle with the two victims,
said Mg. Gerlach.
Prosecutors could not deter-
mine a motive for the killings.
Apparently, the three men had
been on a friendly basis previous to
the slaying. The murder weapon >
has hot been recovered.
A pre-sentencing investigation
is being conducted. Clark is to be
sentenced Oct. 17, at 1:30 p.m. at

the families of the victims will have
an opportunity to speak. He could
face a sentence from 25 years up to

Sealed with a kick: Tigers outlast Newman 37-34


By Bill Fabian

CLEWISTON The Clewiston
Tigers came home for its first dis-
trict challenge against Cardinal
Newman, in its second of four
home games this year for the
Tigers. Coming off a tough, hard
fought battle against Glades Cen-
tral, the Tigers hoped to take out
some frustration on the Crusaders,
who brought a potent, physical
running and passing attack to Cane
Field.
Following an immediate three-
and-out by the Tiger offense, a punt
by quarterback Jared Combass
was returned 61 yards by the Cru-
saders' Anthony Nelson for the
score. Three plays later, the Tigers
offense was absolutely stunned
when a'Combass pass was picked
off in the open field by linebacker
Conlan Kennedy, who pulled away
with the ball for a 27-yard touch-
down.
With just four minutes off the
clock, Clewiston found themselves
trailing 13-0, and the Crusader
offense had yet to step onto the
field.
Interestingly enough, the open-
ing series of events may have bene-
S fited the Tigers, whose defense was
more than ready for the Crusaders,

The Tigers finally got a first
down with seven minutes remain-
ing. Combass, from the quarter-
back position, had a hot hand pass-
ing the ball with 16 completions on
31 attempts for a whopping 288
yards, including a 56-yard touch-
down to junior flanker John Melton
and another 53-yard score to senior


Lamarcus McGriff. It was said dur-
ing the game that 288 yards passing
was an all time Tiger single game
record.
Combass used virtually the
entire lineup of Tiger receivers.
Flanker John Melton snagged four
catches for 89 yards.

Clewiston's winning drive


began at their 37 with 5:07 on the
clock. Two complete passes and
four running plays got the Tigers to
the Crusader 14. Facing a fourth-
and-four, Tiger Coach Tommy Mor-
rell called timeout to consider
attempting the field goal.
Coach Morrell opted to put the
game on his combination quarter-
back/kicker and Combass, kicking
from the right hash mark, split the
uprights.
Coach Morrell said "Whew! We
got ourselves down two scores
right from the start and our boys
had to play catch up. I'm proud of
our kids. The Crusaders are a good
football team and they put nine
defenders in the box and dared us
to pass. Jared Combass had a great
night passing and our receivers hot
only caught the ball well, they
added some big yards tonight after
their catches. It's great to get that
first district win."
Defensively,, sophomore line-
backer Delvin Hughes had five solo
tackles. Linebacker Richard Pope
and cornerback Daniel Collins
each had a fumble recovery and
linebacker David Pope forced both
fumbles. Nate Brinkley blocked a
point after kick and linebacker Carl
Whitehead had a quarterback sack
for minus nine yards.


Pahokee wins big Division 7-2B game against Hustlers


By Nina G. Wills

Big Game. Big Hits. Big Throws.
Big Win. The Pahokee Blue Devils
won a huge division game against
the Melbourne Central Catholic
Hustlers Friday night. The talk of the
J first half was the absence of senior
.quarterback and team leader
'Robert Love. He battled a stomach
ailment, and did not enter the
game until the second quarter, but
backup quarterback Anthony
Sheppard did a fine job filling in for
Love.
The Blue Devils' defense shined
once again. The Blue Devils created
a new line of scrimmage dropping
the Hustlers for losses on numer-
ous plays.
On the Hustlers' second posses-
sion of the game, Rudy Robinson
sacked quarterback Suarez for a
six-yard loss. Pahokee received
excellent field position starting at
the Hustlers' 36-yard line. Running
back Ricky Gary ran the ball nine
yards on a toss-sweep play. On a
third and Oirtuallv inches, Anthony
Sheppard tookk lI to the air throwing

a 26-yard TD pass to Tamarcus
Porter. Porter out jumped the
defender to get Pahokee on the
scoreboard. The PAT failed, but the
Devils went up 6-0.-The Hustlers


faced a tough Blue Devils defense
all night. On the Hustlers next pos-
session; the Blue Devils made tack-
les for losses on three consecutive
plays. Micanor Regis and Jacoby


Love sacked the Hustlers quarter-
back for a second time.
Anthony Sheppard led the Blue
Devils to another scoring drive on
their next possession. Sheppard
made a throw to wide out Tanoris
Jones. On an end-around play,
Nikita White ran the ball to the Hus-
tler's 25-yard line. Janoris Jenkins,
with his lightning fast speed, ran
straight through the Hustler's
defense virtually untouched. Jenk-
ins scored the second Blue Devils
touchdown of the game. The
attempt at the two-point conver-
sion failed, but Pahokee took com-
mand of a 12-0 lead,
Love entered the game in the
second quarter and on his fourth
play from scrimmage, Love threw a.
perfect spiral to Nikita White for a
77-yard touchdown. Pahokee
entered the halftime break with a
18-0 lead over Melbourne Central
Catholic.
To start the third quarter, Paho-
kee moved the ball, but faced a
fourth down. The Blue Devils sent
out their punting unit. To every-
one's surprise, Vincent Cheves ran


the ball for 22 yards, giving the Blue
Devils a fresh set of downs. Paho-
kee once again moved the chains,
setting up a first and goal from the
six-yard line. Ricky Gary ran the ball
for the Blue Devils' fourth touch-
down of the game. Pahokee
increased its lead to 24-0. The Blue
Devils scored again on their next
possession with a two-yard touch-
down run by Jenkins'.
The Hustlers finally got on the
board with 2:16 to go in the third
quarter. Suarez threw a nine-yard
TD pass to John Walsh. The
attempt at the two-point conver-
sion failed. This was the first touch-
down allowed by the Blue Devils
defense in 14 quarters of play.
Needless to say, points are hard to
come by for the offenses facing this
Devils' defense. The Hustlers
attempted an on-side kick and
Pahokee recovered the ball. The
offense ran the ball three times
with Freshman RB Vincent Smith.
On a fourth and four at the Hu.s-
tlers' 12-yard line, Pahokee could
not convert on the down and gave
the ball back to the Hustlers'.


Melbourne Central Catholic was
forced to punt deep in its'own terri-
tory on their next possession. Mel-
bourne Central Catholic punted
eight times Friday night. Robert
Love led the Blue Devils offense to.
its final scoring drive. Love connect-
ed with Martavious Odoms on an
18-yard touchdown pass. The
attempt for the two-point conver-
sion was good when Love threw to
tight end Un'Tavious Scott.
Pahokee defeated Melbourne
Central Catholic 38-6. The Devils
dominated the game on both sides
of ball. This was a game of big-time
players making big-time plays. The
offense came out strong this week
showing off its talented group of
receivers and taking advantage of
the Hustlers weak secondary.
Pahokee is now 4-1 on the season
and 2-1 in its division. Pahokee will
be facing Royal Palm Beach this
weekend. This game was resched-
uled due to Hurricane Katrina early
in September. The game will be at.
Royal Palm Beach at 7:30 p.m.

Pope John Paul


BELLE GLADE The Raiders
continue in their journey to yet
another successful season, defeat-
ing their fourth opponent in a row
in a convincing victory last Friday
night.

they tried to keep. the Raiders at bay
by stopping offensive powerhouse
Deandre Holley, whose scoring that
night brought the Raider win home.
Pope John Paul came out strong
in the first quarter, scoring- 11 points
and stopping the Raider offense,
but that effort would not last. Not a
team to stick around for a defeat,
*Glades Central shot back in the sec-
ond quarter, scoring a dozen points
of their own to assume the lead
going into the second half. Holley
scored off of a 13-yard touchdown
run before connecting with Tarus

touchdown in the second quarter.

quarter with another .touchdown
run from 13 yards out, as' Pope
John Paul responded with a touch-
down of its own to even the score
going into the final quarter.
With the game on the line, the
Raiders stepped up to the plate to
deliver Pope John Paul a stunning
defeat. Holley spurred his team-
mates to action, scoring the first
touchdown in the fourth off a one-
yard run. Aston Samuels followed

OBEE
SCHEDULE STUDY OF THE
SOUTHERN FLORIDA PROJECT
CONTROL


Tuesday, October 11, 2005
7:00PM Presentation
Following presentation, open for public comment

Location: John Boy Auditorium
1200 South W.C. Owens Avenue
Clewiston, Florida 33440

The purpose of the meeting is to present the Lake Okeechobee Regulation
Schedule Study and the potential improvements to the Water Supply,and
Environment Schedule (WSE) and to give all interested individuals, groups and
agencies an opportunity to express their views and ask questions.

The Jacksonville District, U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is intending to
prepare a Draft Supplemental Environmental Impact Statement for the Lake
Okeechobee Regulation Schedule Study (LORSS). The current WSE schedule
was the preferred alternative in the LORSS Final Environmental Impact
Statement in July 2000 for the regulation of Lake Okeechobee. Recent
scientific modeling suggests that the regulation schedule could be improved to
allow greater flexibility in achieving optimal lake levels and optimal discharges
to various downstream parts of the Central and Southern Florida systems.

Public comments will be taken until November 11,2005. Comments can
be submitted to U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Attn: Nelson Colon, Planning
Division, 701 San Marco Blvd., Jacksonville, Florida 32207 or by email to


Assistance for individuals with special needs or requesting translations is
available by calling (904) 232-2568 at least five days prior to this event.

Lady Gators on a roll; sweep Summit Christian


By Mark Young
The Lady Gators broke out the
broom and swept district rival
Summit Christian out of the build-
ing with a dominating three-game
victory Sept. 29 at home.
Glades Day came into the dis-
trict contest with a bit of momen-
tum after defeating Lake Worth
Christian just two days earlier and
while the victory was considered
an upset, the Lady Gators dominat-
ed the action with a game one vic-
tory of 25-19, lost game two 25-13,
but pulled out back to back 25-21
victories to secure the match.
Junior Alleigh Schlechter domi-
nated the net with 14 kills and
sophomore Danielle Sly had a stel-
lar game with a dozen kills, four
blocks, and served up a pair of aces
in leading the team in service
points with 18. Sophomore Natalie
Harville had nine kills, while senior
Ashley Baughman denied the Lake
Worth Christian hitters five times.
Sophomore setter Andrea
Browder also had 18 service points
with a pair of aces and added 14
assists while sophomore Erin McK-
instry returned from injury-to dish
out a team leading 18 assists.
Recovering from injuries, the
Lady Gators are finding themselves
on a roll and the momentum
gained with the victory over Lake
Worth Christian, a team with a 9-3
record, carried over into their dis-
trict game against Summit Christ-
ian where the Lady Gators took the
match with victories of 25-13, 25-
12, ard 5-19.
It was clear from the opening
game that the Lady Gators are
steadily building confid Iti*iheir
abilities and opened up a quick 5-1
advantage behind the serving of
Browder. Baughman picked up an
early block and Harville grabbed
the first of her team leading nine
kills in the opening run.
Summit Christian mounted a

brief comeback bid, but an ace
from Harville and a kill from senior
Heather Daglion saw the Lady
Gators launch another run, but it
was a seven-point run on their next
service possession that broke the
game open for good. Daglion
stepped to the line to pick up a half
dozen service points,, which
include an ace, but Baughman lit
up the net with a pair of strong kills
and had plenty of help from
Schlechter and sophomore middle
hitter Danielle Sly, with both players
picking up key kills on the run.
The Lady gators went up 16-6
before exploding into another
seven-point run with Sly going up
for a pair of kills and Baughman
picking up an ace to give the Lady
Gators a 22-8 advantage en route to
closing out the 25-13 win.
Summit Christian kept the Lady
Gators'in sight for much of game
two, but Glades Day slowly
chipped out an 18-11 lead before
going on a six-point run late in the
match. Schlechter came on strong
with a three kills during the run and


junior Kalyn Rayburn added one
more to the totals as Glades Day
opening up 24-11 lead and had little
trouble closing out the game with a
25-12 victory.
Glades Day never trailed Sum-
mit Christian in this match and
game three was no exception as
aces from Browder and Daglion, as
well as kills from Baughman and
Sly put the Lady Gators up by a
score of 8-3 early in game three.
The green and gold squad extend-
ed that advantage to 16-5 with
Harville dominating the net and
Schlechter serving up aces.
Summit Christian had their best
offensive run of the match late in
game three and after trailing 19-8,
launched a six-point run of their
own to cut the lead to 19-14. Kills
from Schlechter and Baughman
put the Lady Gators 21-.14, but
Summit Christian refused to give
up and fought back to cut the lead
down to four.
Glades Day had to fight for their
last few points, but were never
threatened in taking down Summit

secure the match victory by three

"Having our injured players back
is making a big difference for us
right now," said head coach Kathy
McReynolds. "This is a young team
and they are beginning to have con-
fidence in their ability and have a
better understanding of the game."
The Lady Gators have one fresh-
man and four sophomores on this
year's squad and all four sopho-
mores are key contributors to the


squad. Glades Day also has four
juniors and only a pair of seniors as
this young team begins to pick up
momentum.
The victory over Summit Christ-
ian pulled the Lady Gators' season
record to 6-7, but more importantly
have a solid 4-1 district record.
The Lady Gators followed up
their recent victories with tourna-
ment play at Canterbury and came
away with a fifth place finish after
splitting the tournament with a 2-2
record to up their season record to

to St. Stephens two games to one.
The Lady Gators took the first game*
25-23, but lost the next two by
scores of 25-18 and 16-14.
Glades Day defeated Communi-
ty School, out of Naples, 25-15 and
25-18. They also defeated the host
squad from Canterbury by scores
of 25-15 and 25-19. Schlechter and
Daglion were appointed to the All-
Tournament.

Terriers' season hits the critical mark


Gators win
third straight
By Bill Fabian
NAPLES Moore Haven
Junior-Senior High School's foot-
ball expectations have begun to
fade into frustration, since the Ter-
riers fell in a crucial district match-
up against St. John Neumann in
Naples.
The Terriers dropped to 1-4
after an afternoon game at the
Naples school was lost 15-12 Fri-
day, Sept. 30.
The Terriers are certainly still in
contention, with two more district
games upcoming and a chance to
salvage a winning season, if they
can find a way to run the table in
games at LaBelle, and a three-
game home stand against Evan-


gelical Christian, Glades Day, both
district games, and the season
finale hosting St. Edward's of Vero
Beach.
Friday's game against Neu-
mann brought the Terriers to 0-1
in district play. Terrier Head Coach
Andy Ringstaff will have to lead
the Terriers into LaBelle seeking a
win against the Cowboys, who
have improved to 3-2 following
Friday's 41-13 win against Lemon
Bay of Englewood.
Glades Day 32,
Evangelical 12
FORT MYERS The Glades
Day Gators sloshed their way to a
third straight victory in a rain-
soaked game against district foe
Evangelical Christian (4-2, 0-1) on
Friday,,Sept. 30.
The game was delayed for


more than an hour by lighting, the
second time this season the
Gators had to deal with severe
weather. The last time saw the
Gators go down in defeat against
Benjamin, a game Glades Day
head coach Craig Dobson said his
Gators should have won and
would like to have that one back.
But Friday's severe weather
didn't halt the Gators' who saw
their air attack dampened by the
wet weather, but not their steady
ground assault.
S When the teams finally took
the field, the Gators struck first
with a 22-yard touchdown run by
Frank Lugo, who led the Gator
offensive weaponry with 135
yards rushing. The Gators added
to their first quarter run attack
with another 18-yard touchdown
by Ricky Reitz.
With Reitz's 129 yards rushing,


the Gator offense finished the
night with 381 total yards, entirely
from rushing yards. The Gators
passing game was dampened by
the rainy conditions, as quarter-
back Brandon Smith was unable
to complete a pass on seven
attempts.
The Gators put the game away
with a 52-yard rushing touch-
down by wide out Andrew
Joseph.
With the victory, Glades Day
(3-1, 1-0) opened its district series
with the win against Evangelical.
The Gators will travel once again
to American Heritage, in Delray
Beach this Friday. The Gators have
two more district face-offs,
against St. John Neumann and
Moore Haven, in addition to host-
ing games against King's Acade-
my and Northwest Christian.

Tigers place seventh

in mega-tourney


By Mark Young
SEBRING The Clewiston
linksters headed to Sebring Sept.
19 to partake in the largest high
school 18-hole tournament in
the state and in their first ever
appearance in this mega-tourna-,
ment, came home with a sev-
enth place finish.
There a total of 27 teams
competing in the annual Crutch-
field Sadie Hawkins Invitational
and the Tiger head coach Mike
Kemp called it, "a great experi-
ence for the greatly improved
2005 Tiger golf team."
Senior Brett Cameron, cap-
tain of the Tiger linksters, shot a
seven-over par for a 79 score to
lead the Tigers. Brandon Pena
wasn't far behind with an 81. In
total, the Tigers posted a score of
361, the best team score a Tiger
golf squad has posted in more
than five years on an 18-hole
course.
The Tigers followed their
spectacular performance with a
road trip to Belle Glade to take on
the Gators of Glades Day and
were just one shot off of picking
up their seventh victory of the
year. The Gators posted a 179 to
the Tigers' 180 and it was the sec-
ond time in two years, the Gators
were able to edge the Tigers by a
mere stroke for the victory.
Clewiston and Glades Day,
will meet again when they will
make up an earlier match post-
poned due to weather at an


unannounced time and date.
Pena, a sophomore on the
Tiger squad, posted a 40 on the
Belle Glade back nine to lead the
Clewiston squad. Cameron shot
a 44, junior Josh Adams shot a
47, senior Kyle Kirstein shot a 49,
sophomore Steven Westbury
shot a 52, and senior Stephen
Duplooy shot a 53 to round out
the Tiger scoring.
The Tigers ended their week
of play against their cross-county
rivals from LaBelle, with Lake
Placid jumping into the fray as
well. The Tigers swept both
squads to improve their season
record to 8-2 on the year. Pena
dominated the field with a two-
over38.
"Brandon is an excellent
golfer and he also helps to make
his teammates better as well,"
said coach Kemp of his young
golfer.
Pena had plenty of help as
junior James Miracle shot a 45,
Cameron posted a 47, junior
Justin Cotton shot. a 48, West-
bury shot a 55, and freshman
Tim Burke tallied a 61 for the
Tigers.
Clewiston posted a team
score of 178 to Lake Placid's 192
and Glades LaBelle's 225.
Other than Clewiston's unan-
nounced rematch with Glades-
Day, the Tigers have Immokalee
at the Clewiston Country Club
today at 3:30 p.m., which will be
their season finale before dis-
tricts begin Oct. 18 at Avon Park.

Bill, final counter-cyclical pro-
gram (CCP) payments for
peanuts and upland cotton are
made after the end of the mar-
keting year. The 2002 Farm Bill
provides for two partial 2004
crop CCP payments, one in
October 2004 and one in Febru-
ary 2005. The final weighted
average marketing year price for
2004 crop peanuts, which was
announced on Aug. 31, 2005, is
$378 per short ton, $23 higher
than the $355 loan rate.
The payment rate for upland
cotton is at its maximum level
due to low market prices that
have averaged well below the 52-
cerits-per-pound loan rate during
the marketing year. Because of
these low prices, USDA is able to
determine the final counter-cycli-
cal rate at this time.
Producers who accepted the
first and second partial CCP pay-
ments for 2004 crop peanuts
received $41.30 per ton and are
due an additional $39.70 per ton.
Producers who accepted the first


and second partial CCP pay-
ments for 2004 crop upland cot-
ton received 9.61-cents-per-
pound and are due an additional
4.12-cents-per-pound.
The counter-cyclical payment
rate is the amount by \Vwhich the
"target price" of each commodi-
ty exceeds its effective price. The
effective price equals the direct
payment rate plus the higher of:
(I) the national average market
price received by producers dur-
ing the marketing year, or (2) the
national average loan rate for the
commodity. The counter-cyclical
payment equals the counter-
cyclical payment rate multiplied
by 85 percent of the farm's base
acreage multiplied by the farm's
counter-cyclical payment yield
for each crop. Target prices are
mandated in the 2002 Farm Bill..
The final 2004 counter-cycli-
cal payment rate for barley is 15-
cents-per-bushel. Those pay-
ments were made during July.
Producers will not receive 2004
crop counter-cyclical payments
for wheat, oats and other
oilseeds because their 2004
effective prices equal or exceed
their respective "target prices".
For more information on the
direct and counter-cyclical pay-
ment program, producers can
contact their local USDA Service
Center or visit USDA online at

Conservation reserve program contracts expiring


GAINESVILLE Farmers and
ranchers can now re-enroll or
extend their Conservation
Reserve Program (CRP) con-
tracts expiring in 2007 through
2010, announced Kevin Kelley,
state executive director for
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA). This effort fulfills the com-
mitment President Bush made
last year to. underscore the
Administration's commitment to
improving the environment and
protecting the nation's wildlife
habitat, water and natural
resources.
"We're offering farmers and
ranchers re-enrollments and
contract extensions so they can
take full advantage of the envi-
ronmental benefits of this pro-
gram," said Kelley. "Re-enrolling
and extending these contracts is
part of the president's plan to
fully use the nearly 40 million
acres of CRP to improve water
.quality as well as wildlife habi-
tat."
In order to determine who
might be able to re-enroll or
extend their CRP contract,
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA ~ill use the Environmental
Benefs Index (EBI) that was in
place when the contracts were
first written. The EBI is a measur-
ing system that assigns point
scores to the contracts and then
nationally ranks all CRP land
enrollment offers.
Several environmental out-
comes factor into EBI point


"We're offering farmers and ranchers re-enroll-
ments and contract extensions so they can take
full advantage of the environmental benefits of
this program. Re-enrolling and extending these
contracts is part of the president's plan to fully
use the nearly 40 million acres of CRP to improve
water quality as well as wildlife habitat."

scores such as improving
wildlife habitat, water quality,
and air quality and reducing soil
erosion.
The EBI scores are based
upon a 100 percentile that is
divided into five ranking tiers. In
the first tier, CRP producers rank-
ing in the top 20 percent of the
EBI can re-enroll their land in
new contracts and farmers and
ranchers with wetlands in this
ranking can receive contract
terms of 10-15 years.
CRP producers ranking with-
in the second tier, between the
61-80 percent, can extend their
contracts for five years. Farmers
and ranchers ranking within the
third tier, 41-60 percent, can
extend their CRP contracts by
four years. Those ranking in the
fourth tier, between 21-40 per-
cent, can receive three-year
extensions. And those contracts
ranking in the fifth tier of the 20


percent of CRP producers can
extend their contracts by two
years..
As a result of this land conser-
vation program, many wide-
spread environmental benefits
have evolved. For example:
Reductions in soil erosion
ard reaching more than 450 mil-
lion tons per year, thereby
increasing air quality due to less
airborne contamination.
Sediment and nutrient
runoff into rivers and streams is
improving.
The U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service estimates that CRP is
increasing duck populations by
more than two million per year.
Ring-necked pheasant popula-
tions in Minnesota, North Dako-
ta, South Dakota and Ohio are
rising by 200 percent.
CRP is increasing grasshop-
per sparrow, lark bunting and
eastern meadowlark popula-


tions.
The long-absent prairie
chickens in Texas are reappear-
ing.
CRP is helping Columbian
sharp-tailed grouse recover.
New bird habitats in the
Northern Great Plains are
emerging.
Western state populations
of big game elk, mule deer,
white-tailed deer and pronghorn
antelope are increasing.
In spring 2006, FSA will write
to CRP producers with contracts
expiring Sept. 30, 2007, to dis-
cuss whether those contracts are
eligible for re-enrollment or
extension. Farmers and ranchers
will confirm their contract inter-
ests at that point and a compli-
ance check will be necessary.
Fifteen-year contracts expir-
ing Sept. 30, 2007, are not eligi-
ble for re-enrollment or exten-
sion. During the next several
months FSA will update the CRP
rental rates to better reflect local
market rates for cropland on
new contract re-enrollments and
will review cropland enrollment
limits on. a county-by-county
basis.
CRP is a voluntary program
for agricultural producers, which
help them protect environmen-
tally sensitive land. Producers
enrolling in CRP plant long-term,
resource conservation covers
with USDA providing rental pay-
ments and cost-share assistance.
