Concerns vocalized by public


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON The United
States Army Corps of Engineers
gave some promises, a few
answers, and a lot of time for
public input during a discussion
about the current condition of
Lake Okeechobee at Clewiston's
John Boy.Auditorium on Tues-
day, Oct. 11.,
The gathering was officially
dubbed by the Corps as a "Scop-
ing Meeting" designed to allow


public input as the Corps makes
changes to the current system of
drainage and lake level mainte-
nance. Lt. Col. Robert Carpenter,
who heads the Jacksonville dis-
trict of the Corps of Engineers,
asked the gathering of more than
200, to give feedback over con-
cerns about Lake Okeechobee,
which is in the most polluted and
undesirable state imaginable fol-
lowing the series of hurricanes
that swept South Florida in 2004.
Carpenter explained that the
meeting was intended to assess


public concerns as the Corps
begins to make-changes to its
Water Supply and Environment
(WSE) schedule, which is a plan
enacted five years ago in July,
2000 to coordinate all of the reg-
ulatory factors that impact the
lake's water level and water qual-
ity, such as pumping stations and
filter stations placed strategically
throughout the area.
The WSE plan was .intended
to be dynamic enough to accom-
modate for everyone, with a
"flexible schedule" that engi-

City officials and employees gathered at the Clewiston Public Library to say goodbye to
the Kuechmanns and give them a proper sendoff. Mayor Mali Chamness presented a
keepsake honorary plaque for Mr. Kuechmann, and thanked him for his years of service
as the head librarian.


City gives send-off for director
By Bill Fabian


CLEWISTON The city of
Clewiston said goodbye to one of
its dedicated and hard working
employees, Christopher Kuech-
mann, who will be relocating to
assume a top librarian position in
Louisiana.
Mr. Kuechmann has served as
the library director of the Clewis-
ton Public Library for more than
three years. He also served as the
cooperative coordinator of the
Hendry County Library System'
during that time.
The head librarian came to,
Clewiston with his wife, teacher
Gloria Kuechmann, in 2002, after
serving as a librarian in Yellville,
AR. Since living in Clewiston, Mr.
Kuechmann has also served on
the Lake Okeechobee Rural
Health Network board, and has
served as a part of the Florida
Library Association. The Kuech-
manns are members'of the First.
United Methodist Church, and
Mr. Kuechmann is a member of
the Clewiston Rotary Club.
According to Mr. Kuechmann,
See Library Page 12


Chris and Gloria Kuechmann will be moving to Tangipa-
hoa Parish, LA after three years of serving the city of
Clewiston. "Clewiston is a good town, a good community
- we'll definitely be back to visit, probably during the
Sugar Festival," said Mr. Kuechmann.


neers "believed would prevent
any serious problems such as the
one they are facing now. Unfor-
tunately, the WSE was "woefully..
inadequate", according to Car-
penter.
"In July of 2000, we came up
with a deviation that would
establish a foundation for a reli-
able, but flexible WSE," said Car-
penter. "What we did not expect
nor account for was the event of
four hurricanes dumping the
high amount of water that we
got, and now we're in a situation

CLEWISTON Cancer is
one of the most widespread
.causes of death in the United
States, just a close second to
heart disease. It is estimated
that 50 percent of all men and
33 percent of all women will
develop cancer during their
lifetime, and a reported esti-
mate of 1.2-million individuals
are diagnosed with cancer
eachyearin the U.S.
Although the risk of being
diagnosed with cancer
increases with age, 40 percent
-of those diagnosed at present
are predicted to-be of working'
age, between 18. and 64.
., It is believed that approxi-
mately two-thirds of cancer
types, areas preventable, and
that more than half of all new.
cancer cases can be detected

LABELLE On Monday,.
Oct. 17, Judge Fredrick Hardt
sentenced convicted double
murderer Curtis Clark to two
consecutive life sentences in the
slaying of MeMn Williams and
Marvin Dixon, both 39. The
Clewiston men were shot April
24,2003.
Clark was also sentenced to
15 years for use of a firearm in
the commission of a felony, to
run concurrently with the two
life sentences. Sentencing was,
in the courthouse at LaBelle. On
Sept. 22 Curtis Leonard Clark, 24,
had been found guilty on two
counts of second degree murder


that will have to be fixed, and,
unfortunately, we can't promise
that everyone is going to be satis-
fied with the way we fix it," said
Carpenter.
Carpenter gave a detailed
description of the effect of the
hurricanes from the Corps' per-
spective, indicating that the
lake's water level was measured
at a low of 12.8 feet prior to Hur-
ricane Charley. That water level

early.
The abundance of cancer
cases in the U.S. leaves little
doubt that cancer has affected
the lives of every individual in
the country. Folks fortunate
enough to have avoided can-
cer are still likely to have been
affected by the disease,
whether by having a family
member or friend with cancer,
or just by knowing someone
who had cancer.
Since 2002, The American
Cancer Society has hosted a
fundraising Relay for Life
event in Clewiston to raise
money for cancer research.
According to Sandi Rodriguez,
who serves as the chair-
woman of the Clewiston
Relay for Life Committee,

On the night of the killings,
the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office was called to 10th Street in
Clewiston near the Harlem
Community Store where they
found Mr. Williams lying on the
ground. Mr. Dixon was in the dri-
ver's seat of a green Hyundai
stopped in the middle of the
road, slumped over into the pas-
senger's seat. Eyewitnesses later
recanted or could not be found
but, when .first questioned,
reportedly said they saw the driv-

Teacher preps for marathon


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Clewiston
High School teacher Keri Alford
will travel to San Francisco, CA
to run in a 26.2-mile marathon
on Oct. 23. She will be running
as a member of the Leukemia
. and Lymphoma Society's
Team-in-Training, which com-
prises more than 30,000 partici-
pants committed to raising
funds to support research for
finding a cure for leukemia and
lymphoma.
The full marathon will be
held in San Francisco, and will
be known as the Nike Women's
Marathon. Keri, 23, has been
training for months in order to
be ready to complete the
marathon.
Keri was diagnosed with
Leukemia at the age of 17,
while completing her junior
year of high school in Kentucky.
After the diagnosis, Keri had to
undergo major chemotherapy
treatments to fight the disease,


which has become notorious as
a devastating condition that can
affect all youth from childhood
on through young adulthood.
"I had to go through six
months of chemotherapy,
which I completed during my
senior year, so I started a little
late, but I was able to finish and
graduate on time anyway," said,
Alford, who moved to Clewis-
ton in 2004 after graduating
from Cumberland College in
Kentucky. "I have been consid-
ered cancei-free, or in remis-
sion, for more than six years
now, which means I am consid-
ered cured since I've been in
remission for over five years,"
she said of her recovery.
Keri played soccer at Cum-
berland College, where .she
graduated in 2004. There she
met her husband Jesse Alford,
who is also a teacher at CHS.
Keri has pledged to raise a
minimum of $3,600 to donate
to the Leukemia and Lym-
phoma Society. She plans to


raise funds by holding commu-
nity projects, including plans for
a car wash. She also empha-
sized that she welcomes any
donations and is need of indi-
viduals who would like to
donate to her pledge goal. All
contributions are fully tax
deductible and can be doubled
by employers that provide
matching gift programs.
"I will be running in honor
and in memory of two special
people that I met along my jour-
ney (of recovery). I will be run-
ning in memory of Forest
Reents, who at age eight lost his
continuous six-year fight
against Leukemia, just this past
year," said Keri, who met Forest
during her own treatment and
recovery efforts and her dis-
ease. "I will also be running in
honor of 'Little Miss' Olivia
Paciano. At eight years old,
Olivia is still fighting to reach her
five-year remission mark," she

Keri Alford will run a 26.2-mile marathon in San Francisco,
CA to benefit Leukemia research. "I want to run in honor of
all of those who have survived the disease, and more so for
those who have unfortunately passed. I will be thinking of
them every step of the way," said Keri.

Which is better: Treadmill or outdoors walk?


This week, a reader posed the
question, "Which is better for
you, walking outdoors or using a
treadmill?"
Some online research indi-
cates there is no easy answer to
that question because so much
depends on your personal cir-
cumstances.
There are some advantages to
walking outside, including:
It's free. There is no invest-
ment in exercise equipment.
e You don't have to go home to
exercise. You can take a break and
take a walk, wherever you are.
Walking outdoors may be
more interesting than using a
treadmill. The outdoors provides
a variety of things to see.
If you have a place to walk
that is away from the traffic, you
get some fresh air.
You can vary the pace of
your walk to suit your mood,
without having to worry about
setting controls on a machine.
You.can easily take a break when


with Katrina Elsken


you want to.
If you live in town, you can
combine walking with our activi-
ties, by walking to the store or
walking to the movie theater.
Walking saves money
because the only fuel it con-
sumes is the calories you burn.
Treadmills also have their
advantages:
With a treadmill, you can
walk day or.night. You don't have
to miss your walk if it is dark or
raining by the time you get home.
A treadmill gives you a con-
sistent workout. You can monitor
how fast you walk and for how


long.
You can use a treadmill and
watch television at the same time
so you don't have to miss a
favorite program.
You can control the temper-
ature of your home, so you don't
have to worry about getting over-
heated while walking in the Flori-
da heat.
Using a treadmill indoors
means you don't have to worry
as much about mosquitoes, dogs
and other outdoor nuisances.
Outdoor surfaces may be
uneven, making it easier to trip
and fall.
If you get too tired to contin-
ue your workout on a treadmill,
you are already home. If you tire
out in the middle of an outdoor
walk, you may have to call some-
one to help you.
Which is the best choice for
you? The important thing is not
so much how or where you exer-
cise, but that you exercise.
Choose the exercise that you will


stick with. Some people compro-
mise. On nice days, they walk
outdoors. On rainy days, they use
the treadmill. The key is the exer-
cise regularly, that is, at least five
times a week.
Before making any changes to
your diet or exercise plan, con-
sult your doctor. This is especially
important if you are on any pre-
scription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy".

in the production. Once the video
began and Couse saw his photo on
screen, he could hardly believe he
had been chosen.
"I was overwhelmed by the
honor. As the video played, I could-
n't believe how many people were
involved in this and kept avery good
secret," said Couse. '"Around here
word travels pretty quickly and I
was just completely amazed that
my wife, children, closest friends,
business partners and bank col-
leagues were able to pull this off."
Each year the FBA Executive
Committee selects a Banker of the
Year who has given himself/herself
unselfishly to improving the bank-
ing industry and his/her communi-
ty. Couse was selected as the 2005
Banker of the Year because of his
outstanding service and involve-
ment in his community, his dedica-
tion to the continued success of


banking, his commitment to con-
veying the value of banking to the
public, and his reputation for excel-
lence and distinguished achieve-
ment within the banking industry.
Couse has been particularly
active in the association over the
past year and has helped the FBA
with one of the biggest issues fac-
ing the banking industry in recent
years. Couse and the FBA have
worked hard to raise awareness
about the industry's concerns over
the lack of clear and consistent fed-
eral guidelines on the Bank Secrecy
Act (BSA) and Patriot Act, especial-
ly as they relate to money services
businesses (MSB's).
"We've made tremendous
noise on this issue, and I believe
we've helped a lot of people in
Washington understand how these
unclear and inconsistent rules are
putting a strain on the relationship
many bankers have with their cus-
tomers, especially 'mom & pop'
businesses," said Couse. "Change
takes time in Washington but we're
moving in the right-direction and
making progress."
The First Bank is headquartered
in Clewiston and has two offices
there.
Additional branches are located
in LaBelle and Riverdale.
The independently owned com-
munity bank with assets of $170
million has been helping meet the
financial needs of the residents of
Hendry, Glades and Lee County
since 1922.

Palm Beach County's


first black college


WEST PALM BEACH For
the first time since Roosevelt
Junior College closed 40 year
ago, former students, faculty
and staff are holding a reunion.
They plan to go beyond remi-
niscing to embark upon the first
major effort to preserve the
school's legacy and its historical
connection to Palm Beach Com-
munity College.
The Roosevelt Junior College
Reunion Luncheon will, take
place at 11:30 a.mi Oct. 29 at the
National Croquet Center in West
Palm Beach. It will include
remarks by a representative of
each of the graduating classes
and an address by Walter Smith,
a former Florida A&M University
president and author of the book
"The Magnificent 12: Florida's
Black Junior Colleges."
Roosevelt Junior College,
Palm Beach County's first col-
lege for blacks, opened in 1958
in West Palm Beach, four years
after the U.S. Supreme Court
decision Brown vs. Board of
Education ruled segregated
schools unconstitutional. It was
one of 12 colleges around the
state that opened for blacks after
the Supreme Court ruling.
It was wrapping up its sev-
enth academic year when the
Board of Public Instruction for
Palm Beach County voted to
close the school at the end of the
1964-1965 academic year and
send.the students to then Palm
Beach Junior College. The Board
of Public Instruction had begun
to integrate the. county's
schools. Some people, however,
unsuccessfully pushed for ,Roo-
sevelt Junior College to remain
open as a branch of Palmr Beach
Junior College rather than close.
By many accounts, Roosevelt


Junior College was an educa-
tional and cultural pillar in the
community, creating opportuni-
ties for black students in Palm
Beach County who couldn't
afford to go away to college or
were denied admission to other
institutions. Palm Beach Junior
College had begun integration
only sparingly in 1963.
: To commemorate the 40th
anniversary of the closing of the
scfiool, a PBCC committee has
been meeting with former Roo-
sevelt Junior College students,
faculty and staff to ensure that -
what remains of Roosevelt
Junior College's history the
memories, the yearbooks, the
pictures and other memorabilia
-, is properly, preserved and
woven into that of Palm Beach
Community College. They decid-
ed to hold the reunion to pull
together as many former stu-
dents and faculty together as
possible to gain more input on
how best to keep the school's
legacy alive.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, October 20, 2005


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues blog at httpV/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.
DOING IT WITH LOVE: What an evening! To those who did not
attend the evening of patriotism and praise for hurricane victims you
really missed it. It was so heart warming to see the people of the whole
community come together to praise and give glory to God for the bless-
ings we have here. Their professional type performance, the singing,
interpretive dancing, the choirs and whole bit. We are truly blessed here,
I have lived here many years and seen many changes and I still love
Clewiston. God bless those who took so much time and effort to do this
in behalf of Hurricane Katrina and Rita victims. You did it with so much
love in your heart.

ABIG THANKS: The Silver 4-H Saddler Horse Club, would like to take
this opportunity to thank the new Hendry County Rodeo Association
and Livestock for donating two tractors with bish hogs and many of
their members to help 4-H membersregain the horse pasture back from
the summer rains. The 4-H tractor is being worked on by a master
mechanic also on the Hendry County Rodeo Association and Livestock
but is not quite finished yet. Once again the members of the Hendry
County 4-H Silver Saddlers Horse Club give their thanks.

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION: First of all parents, this thing about the
teachers and principals, guess what? Has been going around for years.
The only way it will change is: (1) Vote on school board members when
the time comes instead of griping, (2) if that doesn't work, go to higher
levels of authority, (3) even worse, parents, let's get together and do
something. If you care so much for our children's benefit, and it bothers
you that much, stop writing and talking. Let's work together to stop it,
NOW! FOREVER! Second of all, as for Glades Central and Clewiston
games always been a problem, always will be. Stop complaining and
do something about it. If someone needs to grow up, it's our coaches
and football critics. It's only a game, not a life threatening disease. Can
you comprehend this? Last but not least, school board members, Ron-
nie Lee, and Bus Barn, please do something about your bus drivers.
They are driving too fast. Do you understand you are holding precious
cargo in those buses? Well guess what, you are! Let's stop it TODAY! It's
a bit ridiculous. You are not in a race. SLOW DOWN!

SOMETHING WRONG: I'm calling in reference to the hospital. It
needs to be closed down. I took my daughter there, they told me she
only had scratches, I took her to Miami and they said she had a concus-
sion. They don't know what they are doing. There's something wrong
with that hospital and it's not only the people that used to work there.

STILL A MESS: I would like to know why, on State Road 835, nothing
has been done with the clean up when they cut all them trees down. We
were so excited that they were finally going to get all of that out there. It
looks good when they cut them all down, but now it's a big mess over
there. They left it and it's not done and needs to be cleaned up and I
don't understand why. Does anyone else have any opinions about that?

WHOSE JOB IS IT?: I'm a working' mother and I want to know why
that in the hospital the only people, the mothers, are the only ones
changing the toilet paper? Why do they leave that to her?


Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Hello, my
name is Vince. I have a 22-year old
orange cat named Joey. Joey has
been an in and out cat his entire
life. Should I make Joey an inside
cat considering his age? And, how
long do cats live? I'm 97 myself, and
am very happy to say I'm in and out
just as much as Joey. He's my
buddy, and I want to provide the
best I can for him.
Thanks, Vince and Joey in Lake
Worth.
A: Hello Vince! Sounds like you
and Joey are quite the pair, and
congratulations on having viva-
cious lives! I'm one to advocate
keeping cats indoors for safety and
protection, however Joey is an
exception. I think a happy lifestyle
is more important here. Should we
change Joey's lifestyle at age 22? I
think he will get depressed. So try
to keep him safe, while at the same
time let him do what makes him
happy. Make sure your veterinarian.
checks him out every six months
and feed him a healthy diet rich in
omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamins
A, E, and C. How long do cats live?
Well, better ask Joey!
Live long and prosper Vince and
Joey! Best Wishes, Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is it true that
cat's get heartworms too? Bo, in
Belle Glade.
A: Hey Bo. Yes they do! All cats


Doc Savvy


should be kept on monthly heart-
worm prevention. My favorite
choice for cats is Revolution, and
for dogs Heartguard. They get
heartworms the same way dogs
dp, via mosquitoes. Dogs usually
get many worms in the heart,
where cats usually only get one or
two. In either case it very serious.
There is a safe treatment for dogs,
but no current treatment available
for cats. So keep those cats on a
monthly prevention program.
Take care Bo, Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com, and check
outyour answers weekly in The Pet
Corner. Be sure to tune into The
Savvy vet Show each Thursday at
10:30 a.m. on 93.5 The Big Dawg.

Letter to the Editor


Rising fuel costs to
impact electricity cost
Dear editor:
The rapid rise in the cost of oil
has dominated headlines for sev-
eral months., and the impact is
being felt in many areas of our
daily lives, most notably at the
fuel pump. Most businesses,
from grocery and department
stores to delivery services and
landscapers, are also faced with.
these rising costs, and are forced
to pass higher costs along to con-
sumers.
The increases in gasoline
prices are only part of the story.
Since 1999, the cost of natural


gas has also skyrocketed, by
more than 600 percent. Consider
that all of Florida's utilities use
natural gas for a significant part
of their generation, and you can
see how rising fuel costs are
impacting your electricity bill as
well. Florida uses natural gas for
nearly 40 percent of its electric
generation.
Florida's municipal electric
utilities, including the city of
Moore Haven, work constantly to
minimize the effect rising costs
have on customers' bills. But
despite their best efforts, no utili-
ty large or small, public or pri-
vate can absorb the kind of
skyrocketing costs we have seen
in recent years.


The causes of these increases
are many, but for'the most part
fuel prices have increased due to
limited supplies in the United
States along with increased
demand worldwide. As the Gulf
Coast picks up the pieces follow-
ing Hurricanes Katrina and Rita,
the cost of fuel may fluctuate
even more because of the tem-
porary closing of refineries
affected by the storms.
It is important for you to know
that electric utilities do not make
any profit on the cost of fuel.
Rather, the price a utility pays for
fuel is passed through to cus-
tomers at cost. The local utility
doesn't keep a dime.
You can help too. I encourage


you to contact your local public
power utility to learn more about
energy conservation programs
and how you can control the
costs of your monthly electricity
bill. You can also check out
www.publicpower.com/save_en
ergy.html for energy conserve,
tion tips.
Please be assured that public
power providers are doing every-
thing in their power to minimize
the impact on customers and are
taking every necessary action to
continue providing you with the
best service possible.
Sincerely,
Barry Moline,
executive director, Florida
Municipal Electric Association

Sooner or later, the storm is coming


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
For years that little church sat
there looking strong as sturdy'as
a brick house, so to speak. When
the storm
came, however,
it revealed a
weakness in the

one had ever
noticed. "How
can a storm tear
the bricks away
from a church
like that?" the Pastor John
pastor asked his Hicks
two builder -'
parishioners. "LOk here," one of
them 'said. Aquick inspection
showed that the workers who con-
structed St. Bernard Church had
not tied the masonry to the wood
structure of the building.
The metal ties were there, but it
was a rare one that was fixed into
the masonry. I said, "How can you
be sure the workers are tying your


brick and your house together?"
They both answered, "Be there and
watch it done. Or know your con-
tractor."
Another church building, con-
structed in the late 1800s and on
the National Historic Register, is a
lovely tall wood-frame structure
with a bell tower reaching up sever-
al stories. A visiting church group
last summer took an entire week to
repaint the building. The storm bat-
tered against the church so badly,
one side of the tower literally blew
out. Upon inspection, one of the
builder .parishioners took note:
"There is your .problem.,: Rotten
timbers from the leaks ,in the ceil-
ing, and termites."'The wood was
so weakened, the stress from the
storm broke it.
One church member com-
mented, "I suppose this develops
our character." Someone else said,
"Rather it reveals it." That's the
point. Storms and stresses of life
uncover the masks and camou-
flages and defenses we so carefully


construct, leaving the real "us"
exposed to the world. Who you are
under great stress is the real you.
For good or forbad. '
There's a sermon here. Life's
storms do not cause the weakness-
es they reveal them. That's why
the good times, when we're well
and the children are behaving and
the bills are paid, are the times to
make sure of the solid construction
of our lives, our faith, our relation-
ship with the Lord. Because, soon-
er or later, the storm is coming.
NOTE: Many of us in our com-
munity have reached out in special
ways to help those in the Gulf Coast
weather their storm. Following is a
note from a pastor at hurricane
gropnid zero:I'm just one person
down here in New Orleans, bul
perhaps I can speak for many of
our people when I say to the peo-
ple of God everywhere: Thankyou;
you've done an incredible job.
God's people all over this nation
have literally knocked themselves
out taking in our dispersed citizens,


without the first consideration to
color or class or condition, and
. have showed them the love of
Jesus Christ.
"The wind of Katrina blew apart
the Wind of Heaven is bringing
together. While the winds of Katri-
na were indeed a destroying force
on the Gulf Coast, the Wind of
Heaven is mobilizing God's people
to minister and love, to give and to
serve. God's people are laboring
alongside one another without
checking each other's orthodoxy
or brand, label. A Baptist church
and non-denominational down the
street has teamed up with us to
serve our neighborhood. In our
kitchen cooking meals and under
the 4e4'tnding out supplies, you
will find a full array of Christian
denominations.
"The wind of Katrina tore down,
the Wind of Heaven is building
up. There is more ministry going
on in this area in the name of Jesus
than ever before. Praise to our
God!"


The theology of Acts (the deeds done)


By The Reverend Samuel S..
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I think I could have predicted
it. I saw it coming and should
have told
someone that .
it was on the
way. When all
of the recent
catastrophes ..'
hit the world, I
knew it would '
cause some to '-'
say that the
end of the
world is at Rev. Samuel
hand. S.Thomas
We had a
tsunami, and then we had two
devastating hurricanes close to
home, then floods in Central
America, then there is a bird flu
that is predicted to spread and
talk about using the military to
quarantine whole areas of the
country if need be. There have
been devastating fires too and
just recently a massive earth-
quake. A bad storm hitting Por-
tugal .when that has never hap-
pened before?
Surely the signs are there and
some people will say, "Ya see! Ya
see!" They will quote the Bible
about the "end times" and cite
verses to bolster their case. Then
there are those passages that tell
us that the day and hour for the
end of time is unknown and that
"no one knows about that day or
hour, not even the angels in
Heaven (Mark 13:32)"
Instead, we are admonished
to "be on guard, be alert...I say to
everyone: 'Watch'! ibidd)" There
is a certain spirit that speaks to
me about those who don't look
for the end of time or spend time
predicting when the age will
cease to be. That spirit can be
found in those who are rebuild-
ing in Louisiana and Mississippi.
It can be found in those who are
working to rebuild after the fires
devastated parts of Colorado and
in those who leave their homes
to help others instead of staying
home to get their own affairs in
order.
Their actions say, "I don't


believe it" when something cata-
strophic happens and others say
"It's the sign of the end." There is
in our spirits a certain faith in
doing what we are called to do
each day and not to worry about
tomorrow, "for tomorrow will
worry about itself (Matthew
6:34)." I think that's where salva-
tion lies in the day-by-day liv-
ing out our lives and doing good
works' as the opportunity pres-
ents itself. Do What we're sup-
posed to be doing and the rest
will take care of itself.
Where is God in all of what is
going on in the world? I see Him
in the crews that go in to dig out
those trapped under the rubble. I
see Him in the people who
adopt a group to help in a strick-
en area. I see Him in those who
help overseas even when the
tragedies here at home are
among the largest ever known. I
see Him in the man who
rebuilds and has faith that his
new home will last. I see Him in
the people standing where their
Church once was and remem-
bering that the Lord is in the spir-
it of their Church family even if
there is no building.
All give their testimony to'the
world going on and if it comes to
an end, well then they've done
what they're supposed to have
done, but they didn't sit around
and worry about it. What makes
people great is not the number
of tragedies they've had in their
lives but how they've reacted to
them. What counts in God's.eyes
is not what happens to us but
how we stay the course that has
been set before us.
Those who reflect God's Spir-
it in them look forward and
rebuild, start over once more.
That's a living testimony to their
faith even if they are too busy to
stop and think about it. Then
there's that parable about the
good Samaritan. He didn't worry
about if he had time to help the
man who was attacked, or
whether he had an important
meeting in the city, or whether
he was supposed to help he
just did it.
He was the hero of the story
and he's out there today too. He


V


understood what was meant by
the admonition to "Be doers of
the word and not hearers only
(James 1:22)." His spiritual


descendants are with us today
and they share the message of
hope with us all even in the dark-
est of times;

Plane crash at LaBelle
airport claims one life
On Sunday, Oct. 16, at approxi-
mately 1:25 p.m. a student pilot,
reportedly practicing touch and
go landings at LaBelle Airport,
was killed when her Cessna 172
Sky hawk aircraft crashed nose
first into a grassy area approxi-
mately 200 yards west of the run-
way. Sheriff Ronnie Lee stated
that a witness to the crash report-
ed that, while he was working on
the outside of an airport hangar
he had observed the aircraft per-
form a "few" touch and go's and
on the last take-off with the air-.
craft at about 200 feet altitude
traveling south to north it "nosed
over" and spiraled down to the
point of impact. The witness stat-
ed he ran over to the crash site
and cut power to. the electrical
and attempted to cut the pilot's
harness away, which at the time
was holding the pilot in the air-
craft. The name of the pilot is
being withheld pending notifica-
tion of the next of kin. Investiga-
tion of the accident by the FA.A.
and the National Transportation
Safety Board is continuing.


Sex offender law


is weighed out


Ordinance could
restrict where sexual
offenders reside
By Patty Brant
LABELLE The cities of
LaBelle and Clewiston, along with
Hendry County, are being asked to
adopt an ordinance that would fur-
ther restrict convicted sexual pred-
ators and offenders.
The proposed ordinance would
regulate where these convicted
felons may reside.
Public .hearings will be set to
consider the ordinance.
Currently, convicted sexual
offenders just register with the local
law enforcement agency when
they arrive in a new jurisdiction
and the authorities check on them
periodically. Although they are
restricted from areas where chil-
dren congregate, there is no restric-
tion where they can live.
The new ordinance would cre-
ate zones 2,500 feet around loca-
tions where children regularly con-
gregate in concentrated numbers.
Those zones include schools, bus
stops, day care centers, parks, play-
grounds, etc. Convicted sexual
offenders would be prohibited-
from temporary or permanent resi-
dence in those areas.
The ordinance would cover
both purchase and rental of a resi-
dence by these categories of felons.
The ordinance would also pro-
hibit landlords from knowingly
renting to convicted sexual offend-
ers.


These convicted felons would
also be prevented from using pub-
lic shelters during times of disaster.
They would, instead, be housed at
the county jail during times of
emergency. In Hendry County, that
would probably be in the first
appearance room at the sheriff's
office.
Penalties include a fine up to
$500 or imprisonment for up to 60
days or both for a first offense.
Penalties for subsequent offenses
include fines up to $1,000 and/or
jail time up to 12 months.
The ordinance would not apply
to a sexual offender who estab-
lished their permanent residence
prior to Sept. 1,2005 or if they were
a minor when they committed the
offense and were not convicted as
an adult. It would also not apply if a
school, bus stop or day care was,
opened after they had established
their permanent residence.
. The ordinance cites a high rate
of recidivism for released sexual
offenders as a prime reason to cre-
ate the zones. Sheriff Lee said he
became aware of the ordinance,
which is in effect in several other
counties, and decided to bring it to
the county's attention.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said it is
important that local governments
enact this ordinance. He noted that
there are 37 convicted sexual
offenders currently living in Hendry
County and one predator. Five of
those are incarcerated: One preda-
tor (John Harjo) and four offenders
in jail (Angel Hidalgo, Alfredo
Mulero, Roosevelt Roberts and Jef-
frey Alan Young).

The store in eastern Okeechobee


By Katerine Worth
As told to MaryAnn Morris
My husband's parents, Enoch E.
Worth and Ada Adkinson Worth
came to Okeechobee in August of
1924. "Granny" Worth bought land
in her own name, two lots, in River-
side Addition in East Okeechobee
from D.R. McNeill and his wife Car-
rie in February, 1924. This was the
lot at the comer of Florida Avenue
and Park Street, on the south side.
Grandpa built them a house there.
His cousin Kenneth Worth came
down to help build the house. He
must have liked it here, because he
stayed and he built the crypts at
Evergreen Cemetery.
They bought more land in River-
side Addition, Lots 3 and 4, in 1925,
this time on the north side of Park
Street at the corner of the street that
went up into Cypress Quarters. I
Think it was across Park Street from
where the Spanish meat market is
now, two streets down from W&W
Lumber.
Many of the workers from Sher-
man's sawmill lived there, up in
Cypress Quarters, and Grandpa
knew they needed a place to shop,
so he built a combination dry
goods and grocery store and filling.
station. It was a two-story building
with a rooming house on the sec-
ond floor.
The filling station had the gravity
pumps, where they'd pump the
gas up into a clear chamber, and
then it would flow down into your
car. Mama said she remembered
the Indians coming in to buy the
rickrack and fabric to make their
clothes from her and when they
passed by on their way to the yearly
green corn dance, the women
would come in and buy their sup-


Recollections

pioneers and history
mm


plies from grandpa.
I remember mama telling about
crossing the Kissimmee River in
grandpa's truck. There were
boards or timbers laid across for-
your tires to ride on and while they
were crossing one of the tires
slipped off and the truck got stuck.
Grandpa had to walk two miles
before he came to a tree he could
cut down to take back and leverage
the truck back up.
There used to be a big fish camp
at the Kissimmee where S.R. 78
crosses the river. The county is
building a park there now, but back
then it was a popular spot for
camping and fishing.
When I was a young woman,
my mamma and I would come
over to Okeechobee to fish. We'd
always stay in one of the little cab-
ins at Taylor Creek Lodge and fish.
We did love to fish. Where you see
Cypress and Guava trees around
the lake, that's where the lake used
to be in high water. Even now,
that's the only place those trees will
grow.
There was a company from
Bradenton that would come over
and pay folds 25 cents for a five-gal-
lon bucket of guavas back then.
There's still some guava trees if you
knowwhere to look for them.


Submitted to INI/Katherine Walker Worth
When my husband, Fred was a little boy they lived here in
Okeechobee. Fred and his mamma are standing by the fami-
ly car. This would be sometime in the 1920s.

Fred said when he was a boy, people used to camp along the
Kissimmee River and fish. Fred and his mamma, Ada Worth
are there with some friends sometime in the late 1920s.

Crist brings focus


to home violence


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist recog-
nized the Florida Coalition
Against Domestic Violence for
its efforts to protect Florida's cit-
izens who are threatened at
home. During a meeting of the
Florida Cabinet, Crist also intro-
duced a resolution designating
October as Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, reminding
Floridians of the importance of
fighting this crime.
Crist also praised the efforts
of Governor Jeb Bush and First
Lady Columba Bush for their
work and dedication to eradi-
cate domestic violence.
Under the leadership of Gov-
ernor Bush, Florida became the
first state to allocate capital
grants for domestic violence
shelters. Since 1999, Mrs. Bush
has been a strong advocate for
victims' rights, particularly
domestic violence. ,
"During Domestic Violence
Awareness Month, I urge Florid-
ians to reach out to domestic
violence victims and let them
know that help is available,"
said Crist. "Domestic violence is
a crime that must be stopped,
and there are things that each
one of us can do to help. With
dedication and education, we
can increase safety for thou-
sands of our citizens and bring
hope to Floridians suffering at
the hands of someone the vic-
tim once trusted."
According to the annual
crime figures for 2004, the num-
ber of reported domestic vio-
lence offenses decreased 0.8
percent in Florida, and arrests
for these crimes decreased 1.5
percent from 2003. However,


more than 119,000 incidents of
domestic violence were report-
ed, including 184 murders.
The Florida Coalition Against
Domestic Violence offers a toll-
free domestic violence 'hotline
(1-800-500-1119) and serves as
the professional association for
Florida's 41 domestic violence
.centers, which serve 67 coun-
ties across Florida. The Coali-
tion also maintains a resource
library of books, periodicals,-
and videos regarding domestic
violence issues.
In March 2004, Crist joined
with the Coalition to launch an
initiative targeted to help victims
of domestic violence through
education and awareness. "Cut
Out Domestic Violence" pro-
vides information and training
to employees of more than
8,000 licensed hair salons in the
state of Florida. The ongoing
program teaches hair stylists,
cosmetologists and nail techni-
cians the nature and signs of
domestic violence, including
what to listen for and how to
put victims in touch; with the
appropriate resources and
authorities.
For those professionals inter-
ested in receiving the training,
they may call the Domestic Vio-
lence Hotline in order to be
scheduled for training in their
area. Crist is also the national
spokesperson for a program
called Safety Net, a national
effort to expand the use of high-
tech tools to improve safety for
survivors of domestic violence.

S. CLEWISTON The first new
year meeting for the Green
Thumbs Garden Club was held
Sept. 20 at the ranch home of
Sandy Stitt with 18 members and
four guests attending.
New president Linda Parker
presided at the meeting at which
time various activities were dis-
cussed with the four young mid-
die school members who had
attended Camp Wekiva giving
their reports. Clint Drake and
Jason Reese were the boys'
.camp attendees and gave high-
lights they thought were most
S interesting, including survival
techniques in the wilderness and
camping away from camp for
part of the time.
The girls, Jade Sandeli and
Lisa Walker, were the girls
attending and they talked about
highlights of "Learning to Care
for Our Environment Because
Sometime it Might not There",
the theme for this year, and they
elaborated on their camp assign-
ments, canoeing, swimming,
and especially the crafts they
learned. The girls wrote personal
thank-you notes and made craft
gifts for club members. Each stu-
dent expressed how much
attending camp meant to them
and indicated they would like to
go again.
Sandy Stitt gave a report on
the status of landscaping the
Clewiston Museum. She report-
ed that the parking lot, irrigation
for the new plants, sidewalks,
etc., are near completion. She
expressed appreciation to Eddie
Crosby for not only loaning a


palm to the committee, but for
bringing it to the museum to pre-
pare one of the pots so the city
commissioners could see what
they will look like. They.
approved landscaping the muse-
um and is a joint project
between Green Thumbs and
Clewiston Garden Club. The city
has been very cooperative in
providing the manpower for
most of the work.
Vickie Austin gave out new
year books, which were very
impressive. Coming events were
discussed.
Cathy Hilliard expressed con-
cern that she and other garden
club members have concerning
the recent tree trimming by the
city, especially on the palm trees.
She and Christine Howell con-
tacted Hendry County extension
agent for the proper way to trim
the tress. They will give the infor-
mation to city manager for their
guidance.
In other business, Janet Sum-
merlin presented a bag of neat
gifts for each member to have.
Sandy Stitt gave a tour of her
pond being located on the west
side of her house, citing her
plans for appropriate landscap-
ing of the area, which looks to be
beautiful. Emily Drake brought
tuna fish cans to b delivered to.
districts representatives for mak-
ing table decorations for Nation-
al conference centerpieces for
next year in Orlando. A lovely
bouquet of roses was presented
to outgoing president Sue Phelps
by new president Linda Parker.

Harris votes for the gas act of 2005


Legislation will
encourage new
refineries and more
WASHINGTON, D.C. U.S.
Representative Katherine Harris
(R-Fla.) voted in favor of H.R.
3893, the Gasoline for America's
Security (GAS) Act of 2005. The
legislation addresses the demand
for increased supply by encour-
aging construction of new


refineries. Additionally, the legis-
lation bans price gouging at the
federal level.
"As no new refinery has been
built in the United States since
1976, the construction of new
refineries constitute a giant leap
forward toward greater energy
independence," said Harris.
Approximately 47 percent of
U.S. refining capacity and 28 per-
cent of oil production is concen-
trated in the Gulf of Mexico. The


disruption to supply lines that
resulted from Hurricane Katrina
contributed to an increase in the
national average retail price for
motor vehicle gasoline of 46
cents to $3.069 per gallon.
"This legislation is a common-
sense response to the demand for
increased supply and promotes a
balanced and comprehensive
approach to bring greater stabili-
ty to gas prices for years to
come," Harris concluded.

Lake

shot up to 18.2 after the devastat-
ing storm, which dumped most of
its water in the Kissimmee River
watershed, which drains all of its
contents into Lake Okeechobee
from Central Florida.
A hurricane of the same
strength of Hurricane Katrina
would not cause the same situa-
tion as experienced in New
Orleans, Carpenter said. He gave
confident assurance that the state
of the levees around the lake is in
prime condition, and that "what
happened in New Orleans can-
not, and will not happen here."
Others were not so sure about
Carpenter's promise. "I have seen
instances in which that levee has
leaked, and when you mention
that the levee will withstand a Cat-
egory 3, Category 4, or Category

research have provided crucial
breakthroughs such as medica-
tion for treatment of breast can-
cer, and an injectable treatment
to help treat and/or prevent cer-
vical cancer.
These advances in cancer
research are largely funded by
the American Cancer Society,
which will continue the annual
Relay for Life, which will be held
on Feb. 17-18 at the Hendry
County Fairgrounds in Clewis-
ton.
The Relay for Life will raise
funds for cancer research by
assigning volunteers to coordi-
nate several community-related
projects to raise at least $100 per
volunteer before they can partic-
ipate in the relay.
The relay itself will be con-

Street. Clark got into the back seat
and they began to drive away. Wit-
nesses said they heard shots from
inside the car and saw Clark hold-
ing a firearm. They also said they
saw Mr. Dixon slump over and Mr.
Williams exit the vehicle, run in
front ofthe car and down Kentucky
Street before collapsing.
Defense Attorney Jay Brizel's
request to"have the verdict over-
turned was denied. He contended
the jury had not convicted his client
on the evidence that had actually
been presented in court. However,


5, I just don't believe the levee is
capable of withstanding that,"
said Alan Hammock, who owns
and operates a family farming
facility within a stone's throw
from the Okeechobee dike.
"(Carpenter) mentioned funds
being sent to help the projects
being headed by the Corps of
Engineers to build a better system
in New Orleans. I hope it's clear to
everyone involved that those
funds could have been much bet-
ter spent preparing the system
before the hurricane, and I hope
you take action to do that here,"
said Hammock.
Carpenter outlined a plan to
alleviate the high levels of pollu-
tants in the lake that would be
implemented over a period of sev-
eral decades. The Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan,
known as CERP, is currently in
year five, and is expected to be
-tompleted over a period of 30


ducted by assigning the volun-
teers, who will join the relay as
teams, to walk continuously
from. Friday evening to Saturday
at noon. During the 18-hour
event, teams will sell food and
conduct additional fundraising
projects to raise more funds.
Finally, the organizers and
volunteers will collect corporate
sponsorships to raise more
money for cancer research.
"The Relay for Life this.year
(Feb. 2005) raised at least
$38,000 through the volunteers,
sponsors, and teams who were
involved in the project," said
Rodriguez, who is a cancer sur-
vivor herself. "All of the money
we raise in Clewiston goes
towards cancer research, as well
as to cancer sufferers who are
receiving expensive treatments
and must pay travel expenses.
All of the money devoted to that
aspect stays in Clewiston," said


Assistant State Attorney Robert Lee
maintained that the verdict was
well founded and Judge Hardt
agreed, saying the verdict was
made on "competent, substantial
evidence" that Clark was the one
who fired the weapon. The evi-
dence had not been impeached by
the defense, he said.
Prosecutors based their case on
evidence including the fact that the
bullets that killed the two victims
were .38-caliber and both came
from the same gun. Investigators
also matched DNA from scrapings
found under the fingernails of one
of the victims with Clark's DNA,
putting Clark in the vehicle with the
victims, according to the prosecut-
ing attorney assisting Mr. Lee,


years. Carpenter said the $1.5 bil-
lion project would start to make
visible differences within 10 years.
The immediacy of the lake's
problems provides a stark contrast
to Carpenter's long-term solution,
and begs for a more expeditious
and effective plan. Okeechobee-
based commercial and private
fishing businesses are suffering,
and the quality of the Okeechobee
ecosystem is quickly deteriorating.
Mary Ann Martin helped eluci-
date the state of the fishing indus-
try on the lake. "An ecologist went
out onto the lake to study the fish
populations,. and he found no
yearlings in any of the samples he
looked at," said Martin. "This indi-
cates that there was not any sign of
a fish spawn happening in the last
year," she said. "There have been

Rodriguez.
Rodriguez said the American
Cancer Society has raised more
than $2.5 billion for cancer
research since 1950.
Planning for this year's event
has started with an organization-
al meeting to establish current
sponsorships, teams and volun-
teers. An "Event Kickoff" will be
held Dec. 15 at 6 p.m. at the
Clewiston Inn.
The relay in February will fea-
ture entertainment, food
(including a banquet), and a
commemoration to cancer vic-
tims. The Luminaria Ceremony
will be on Friday, Feb. 17 at 9
p.m. Candlelight luminaries will
be placed along the walking
area to create a commemorative
atmosphere in honor of cancer
victims. Each candle will be
sponsored by a donation given
before the event, according to
Luminaria coordinator Mary


Chene Gerlach.
Mr. Lee reminded the judge that
there were two individual victims in
this crime and urged him to set the
punishment to the "fullest extent of
the law."
Pamela Jackson spoke on
behalf of the victim's family. Turn-
ing to look directly at the man con-
victed of murdering her husband's
brother, in a strong and compas-
sionate voice she unflinchingly
assured Clark that the family was
not hostile or even angry with him.
Although they keenly felt their loss,
they had relied on their faith to
achieve peace, and hoped he could
do the same. Their family is strong,
she told him, and they have accept-
ed that they will not see their loved


that there are fish floating dead all
over the lake," said Martin.
"Not only do I fear this due to
my business, but I fear it for the
state of Florida. If nothing is
done to stop what's happening, I
think the entire country could
feel the impact of this situation,"
said Martin.
She added that just last year, a
popular fishing magazine listed
Lake Okeechobee as the greatest
bass fishing destination in the U.S.
This year, however, the same lake
was not even listed within the top
10 fishing areas in Florida alone.
All information related to this
meeting was publicized on the
Corps' Web site under the Lake
Okeechobee topics link. Com-
ments may also be mailed to Nel-,
son Colon, ATTN: Planning Divi-
sion, 701 San Marco Boulevard,
Jacksonville, FL 32207. E-mail
comments may be sent on or

Thomas.
The event still needs as many
sponsors and volunteers as it
can get. The teams of relay vol-
unteers must raise $100 per
team member, and each team
will be responsible for produc-
ing a station that represents a
country as a part of the overall
theme, "Around the World in
Relay". Each team will represent
a country by displaying colors,
artifacts, and, best of all, food
from the specific country.
Those interested in sponsor-
ships or volunteering for the
event may find more informa-
tion by visiting the Relay for Life

one again. They have put their trust
in God.
Several times during Ms. Jack-
son's gentle admonition, Clark had
to look away. During the proceed-
ings he had sat almost motionless,
eyes forward, quietly listening.
When her turn came, Loworn
Dixon said the family has suffered
tremendously; that her brother left
two children, two grandchildren he
will not see grow up, his mother,
siblings and many other relatives.
She told the judge that, although
they pray also, they want to know
why the men were killed.
' The weapon was not found and
no motive has been revealed. The
defense has 30 days to file an
appeal.

said.
Leukemia is a malignancy of
the blood-forming tissues (prima-
rily bone marrow) that strikes
more than 100,000 Americans
each year, and killing approxi-
mately half that number. The sta-
tistic leads to a 50-percent proba-
bility of survival against the
disease.
The deadly condition is the
number one disease-related killer
of children,. and yet affects 10
times as many adults. The under-
lying cause still remains
unknown, but treatment is
becoming much more successful
and the survivor rate is rising.


Research still must be conducted
until the ultimate goal of finding a
cure is eventually found.
"Although I have always tried
to stay as athletic as possible
throughout my years of playing
soccer, a full marathon is truly a
personal challenge for me," said
Keri. "Although I have never gone
this far before, I learned many
years-ago never to give up. I have
always been the type of person
that when I know someone is
counting on me, I have no choice
but to commit 110 percent of
myself," she said.
Information on sending dona-
tions can be found at Keri's Web

he is most satisfied with the state of
the Clewiston Public Library, the
Harlem Public Library, and the
library system in Hendry County.
He will miss working with longtime
associates such as Florida Thomas,
who is the director of the Harlem
Public Library. He also said he'll
miss working with all of the city of
Clewiston officials and employees,
including City Manager Wendell
Johnson, whom Mr. Kuechmann
said was "very pleasant and profes-
sional" to work with. He also
acknowledged the helpful associa-
tion with Hendry County Commis-
sioner Janet Taylor during his
duties working with the county.
He has also enjoyed working
with the Clewiston Public Library
staff, which includes employees
and volunteers Joanne Stiles, Marie
Parlor, Maria Antunez, Melva Ward,
Shirley Reynolds, and Sabrina Pear-
son, among others.
"Clewiston is a good communi-
ty, we'll definitely be back to visit,"
said Mr. Kuechmann. "I'm looking
forward to the opportunity to work


in a new state, a smaller state. I will
have an opportunity to give a
broader service to a lot more peo-
ple in a community with a lot of
needs," he said.
The Kuechmanns will settle in
Tangipahoa Parish, which is locat-
ed approximately 50 miles north of
New Orleans. The parish (which is
the same thing as a county, accord-
ing to Mr. Kuechmann) has a larger
library system, serving a popula-
tion of 102,000. Mr. Kuechmann
will serve as the executive director
of the parish library system.
The system will provide broad
opportunity and scope of responsi-
bility, as it contains six libraries
throughout the parish, as well as a
bookmobile,.and a geology depart-
ment. The system is headed by a
governing board and is funded by a
$1.6 million library budget.
"One interesting thing about
where I'm going is the fact that they
call Tangipahoa County one of the
Florida parishes, because it used to
be a part of Florida," said Mr.
Kuechmann, referring to the days
when the Florida panhandle actual-
ly stretched through large areas of
present-day Alabama, Mississippi
and Louisiana as a mega-state that


was divided into West and East
Florida. The westernmost bound-
ary of the state ended along the
Mississippi River.
Mr.. Kuechmann, a graduate of
the University of Wisconsin in Mil-
waukee with a Master's Degree in
Library and Information studies
(MILIS), met his wife Gloria in Rio
Grande, TX while he served at a
library in the city.
In addition to being satisfied
with the' library system in 'Hendry
County, Mr. Kuechmann also
acknowledged his positive impres-
sion from the recently adopted
inter-local- agreement, and the
Long Range Plan for 2005-2008.
Finally, he is proud of the Pay it For-
ward Program, which provides
alternative methods of circulating
books among the community, and
initiates discussions among resi-
dents as well.
City officials and employees
gathered at the Clewiston Public
Library to say goodbye to the
Kuechmanns and give them a
proper sendoff. Mayor Mali Cham-
ness presented a keepsake hon-
orary plaque for Mr. Kuechmann,
and thanked him for his years of
service as the head librarian.

Terriers drop fourth straight contest


By Bill Fabian
MOORE HAVEN The Moore
,Haven Terriers hosted Evangelical
Christian with hopes that they
could hold a Sentinel team at bay
while keeping their playoff hopes
alive by picking up a district win
and having Glades Day still left to
play. The Terriers also hoped to
avoid losing their fourth straight
since their lone victory against Hol-
lywood Christian on Sept. 16, but
neither would come to fruition.
However, despite a strong
home field showing and putting up
the second-highest number of
points in a single game this season,
the Terriers could not defend
against the Sentinels. who over-
powered the Moore Haven defense
and went home with a 46-20 victo-
ry over the Terriers.
Evangelical Christian (6-2, 1-1)
played patient, deliberate football


during the District A-6 match up,
and were successful in holding'
back the Terriers (1-7, 0-2), who
appeared intent upon winning the
key district game Friday.
Evangelical quarterback Colt
Franklin peppered the Terriers' sec-
ondary for 146 yards passing and
three touchdowns. Evangelical'
wide out Jarred Duke caught
touchdown passes of 52 and 19
yards and ran for a 10-yard score for
ECS.
The Terriers defense could not
.stop the driving ECS offense. On
their first offensive possession, the
Sentinels ran the ball 10 times for
70 yards, culminating in a 25-yard
touchdown burst by running back
Calan Lynch.
Moore Haven responded on the
next drive with a 27-yard touch-
down run by quarterback Rod
Huggins. Barrett Ringstaff's extra-
point attempt was no good, leaving


the Sentinels with a 7-6 lead.
Frustrated by turnovers all sea-
son, the Terriers missed an oppor-
tunity to take the lead after their first
score. ECS's Duke returned the

Moore Haven kickoff 70 yards to
the Terriers' five-yard line before
being dragged down from behind.
Moore Haven's defense stopped
the Sentinels on a fourth-and-goal
at the one-yard line, but ECS recov-
ered a Terriers' fumble on the next
play and capitalized on the error
with a one-yard Ty Turner touch-
down run.
On their next two possessions,
the Sentinels went to the air. A 38-
yard pass from Franklin to Lynch
set up Duke's touchdown run,
which made the score 20-6. A 34-
yard pass to Daniel Lynch set up a
three-yard touchdown pass to tight
end Evan Cooper, which gave the
Sentinels an insurmountable, 27-6
lead.


Brian Lynch said the success of
his team's passing game was a
major reason for its impressive
offensive production.
Moore Haven, which fell to 1-6,
was plagued by a rash of untimely
turnovers and penalties. Nate Kelly
led the Terriers in rushing with 86
yards.
The Terriers will rest this week-
end with a bye, and then will pre-
pare for a district match up Oct. 28
against Glades Day, who were one
of the two teams to beat Evangeli-
cal this year.
Moore Haven's playoff hopes
were dashed, but will likely look
forward to the contest against
Glades Day who has already
secured a playoff appearance. The
Terriers could still play spoiler to the
Gators' bid for the district champi-
onship, as only Moore Haven
stands in the way of a perfect dis-
trict record for the Gators.


Clewiston squeaks their way by Pope John Paul


By Jeff Barwick

BOCA RATON The Clewis-
ton Tigers rallied against an upstart
Pope John Paul II team and came
from behind to win 12-10 in a key
district match up. Tiger tailback
junior Jamal Hubert swept around
the right side for a 14-yard score
with 6:09 remaining in the game to
provide the winning margin.
Hubert had scored the first Tiger
touchdown on a five-yard burst late
in the third period after a scoreless
first half. The victory put the Tigers
at 2-0 in district play and in the dri-
ver's seat for the championship.
The Tigers and the Eagles
entered the game with identical 3-3
overall records, but the Eagles were
11 in district play. The game was a
hard hitting event with the Tigers
hurting themselves by losing two
fumbles to kill drives and getting
penalized nine times for 105 yards.
Eagles kicker Alex Ruoff, who
had missed three earlier field goal
attempts finally nailed a 25-yard
attempt to put the Eagles on top 10-
6 in the last minutes of the third
quarter.

St. John Neuman


By Mark Young

BELLE GLADE The luck of
the Celtics wouldn't hold up
against the Glades Day Gators
Oct. 14 as the Gators handed
their district rivals from St. John
Neumann their first loss of the
season to give Glades Day a deci-
sive advantage in the district
standings.
The Gators strung together
their fifth straight victory with
their 18-0 shutout over the Celtics
on Gator Field and picked up
their second district victory after
defeating Evangelical Sept. 30.
The only team standing in the
way of the Gators claiming the
district championship are the
struggling Terriers from Moore
Haven who will host the Gators
Oct. 28 in Moore Haven.
Once again it would be Frank
Lugo who would put up the first
Gator touchdown of the night.
Lugo, who posted over 200 yards
of rushing against American Her-
itage last week, would break the
100-rushing mark with 131 yards
on 20 carries. Lugo also played a
part in all three of the Gator
scores last week running for
two and throwing for one on a
halfback option and would
again this past week against the
Celtics after finding the end zone
three times for the Gators.
Lugo scored on an 18-yard
run in the first quarter, which
would be the only score of the
first half. Lugo scored touch-
downs in both the third and
fourth quarters with runs of one-
yard and 23 yards respectively.
All three point after attempts
failed following the touchdowns,
as the Gators still struggle with
special teams.
"We definitely have some
kicking issues as far as our field
goals and point after attempts,"
said head coach Craig Dobson.
"It's something we are going to
work hard on this week and
we'll make some changes, not
so much in personnel, but in
techniques."
The Gators have locked up
their playoff appearance for the
2005-2006 season despite having
three games left on their sched-
ule and have done it with a back-
up quarterback in Brandon
Smith, although starting quarter-
back Josh McGregor was finally
back on the field for the Gators
for this victory, and a Gator
defense that has been relentless.
The Gator defense destroyed


American Heritage last week and
chalked up a shut out against the
previously undefeated Celtics in
allowing just 84 yards of passing,
63 of which came off one play,
and held the Celtic ground attack
to minus two yards.
Defensively, the Gators forced
three turnovers two intercep-
tions and one fumble while stiff-
ening to prevent points when the
Gator offense turned the ball
over three times.
"I'm really happy with the
way our defense is playing," said
coach Dobson. "The difference
right now compared to the
beginning of the season as these
guys are just playing harder and
learning their assignments. You
have to remember that this is a
young defense. We only have
two seniors on our defense.
They are learning and they are
playing harder."
The Gators look to King's
Academy Oct. 21. The Gators
knocked King's Academy out of
the playoffs. last year and coach
Dobson is expected their next
opponents to come out playing
hard.
"It's going to be a good foot-
ball game," he said. "They aren't
going to forget who knocked
them out of the playoffs last year
and they are going to come to
play."
McGregor has one game
under his belt after coming back
from an injury that forced him to
the sidelines for four of Glades
Day's six games. McGregor went
to the air 13 times this week, con-
nected on seven passes for 145
yards and tossed one pick.
With McGregor back in the
lineup, it legitimizes the Gator air
attack, which will only compli-
ment a solid running game.
Lugo led the gators with his 131
yards and three touchdowns on
20 carries. Ricky Reitz ran for 67
yards on seven carries and Lloyd
Monds rushed for 20 yards on
five carries.
McGregor spread the ball
around well to his receivers. He
found Travis Hendry three times
for 66 yards, Andrew Boccanfu-
so twice for 34 yards, Lugo once
ffor 45 yards, and Reitz once for
two yards.
In all, the Gators tallied 145
yards in the air and 217 yards on
the ground for 362 yards of
offerie wile holding the Celtics
to just 82 yards of total offense.
The Gators host King's Acad-
emy Oct. 21 at 7:30 p.m.

Devils' offense explodes with 49-point victory over the Rams


Submitted to INI/Nina G. Wills
Pahokee quarterback Robert Love chats with a referee before
the game. "Rah Rah" would pass for 268 yards and three
touchdowns.


By Nina G. Wills
Robert "Rah Rah" Love led the
Pahokee Blue Devils to their
biggest rout this year defeating
John Carroll 49-0. The Blue Dev-
ils' defense forced the Rams to
punt on their first possession of
the game giving the Devils'
offense the ball at mid-field.
The Devils took advantage of
the short field and had a first and
goal at the four-yard line three
plays later. Ricky Gary scored the
first Devils' touchdown of the
night. The PAT by Jose Rodriguez
was good and Devils led the
Rams 7-0 with 8:05 remaining in
the first half.
On the Blue Devils' second
possession of the game, the
offense mixed the plays up with
Love throwing to Tanoris Jones
for a first down and Janoris Jenk-
ins running for the next first
down. Pahokee's offensive selec-
tion led to Love hooking up with
Martavious Odoms on a play-
action pass that was good for a
46-yard strike to for a touchdown.
The play was a repeat of Odoms'
touchdown last week against
Royal Palm Beach. Odoms sim-
ply beat the defender and was
wide open to make the quick
score. Love ran the two-point
conversion in on a bootleg put-
ting the Devils up 15-0 to end the
first quarter of play.
The Rams were able to put get

the Devils defense.


a first down at their own 20-yard
line at the beginning of the sec-
ond quarter and worked their
way into Blue Devils' territory. On
a key fourth down, Devil line-
backer Rudy Robinson made a
tackle on the Rams running back,
stopping him short of the first
down. Pahokee got the ball back
on their own 30-yard line and
Jenkins came in as the running
back to pick up a quick first
down.
Love again stood strong in the
pocket connecting with Odoms
for a 20-yard gain. Jenkins
capped the drive off with a 25-
yard touchdown run and Love
threw to tight end Un'Tavious
Scott for the two-point conver-
sion. The Blue Devils stretched
-their lead 23-0.
The Blue Devils defense
would prove to be too much for
the Rams again. The Devils
forced the Rams to punt and
Robinson got a hand on the ball.
On the next play from scrim-
mage, Robert "Rah Rah" Love
threw a beautiful pass to Tamar-
cus Porter who eluded several
Rams' defenders and hauled the
ball into the end zone. The Blue
Devils entered half time with a 30-
0 lead. The Blue Devils had the
ball five times and scored four
touchdowns in the first half.
Unfortunately for the Rams,
the explosive Blue Devils' offense
would have many more big plays
in the second half. On the first
play from scrimmage to start the
third quarter, Love hit Nikita

The brnt of the team's offen-
sive efforts came in the form of
Raider sophomore Deandre Hol-
ley, whose 72 rushing yards, two
touchdowns and 113 passing
yards gave the team a decisive
advantage in the game.
But quarterback Bryan Mann,
as he often does, also contributed
to the game, going 8-for-14 for
160 yards with a touchdown pass.


Mann connected with Deonte
Thompson for a 48-yard touch-
down pass early in the game.
Mann also did a little running,
scoring off a seven-yard touch-
down run before Holley took
over in the second half.
Cardinal Gibbons stood by as
the Raiders continued racking up
the points, scoring three addi-

quarter, setting up the win and
helping the team extend its unde-

White for a 62-yard touchdown
pass. The PAT was no good. The
Devils defense forced another
Rams' punt. Gary's quick burst of
speed gained 28 yards on two
plays moving the chains for the
Blue Devils. On a third and goal
from the two-yard line, Gary ran
straight up the middle for his sec-
ond touchdown of the night.
Pahokee ended the third quarter
with a 42-0 lead.
On Pahokee's next posses-
sion, back-up quarterback Antho-
ny Sheppard entered the game
and led the offense to another
scoring drive. Sheppard connect-
ed with Derrick Bouie on two
plays for 29 yards. Freshman run-
ning back Vincent Smith capped
the drive from four yards out for
the Blue Devils' seventh touch-
down of the night.
This Blue Devils team has just


exploded offensively in its last
two games. Love has shown his
senior leadership, patiently wait-
ing for his receivers to break
away from defenders. The execu-
tion of the team both offensively
and defensively has been superb.
For most Devils' players this
game was a chance to show off
their talent, speed, and ability. But
for Blue Devils senior outside
linebacker Kadero Hutchinson,
this was his chance to play.
Kadero has been out all season
with an ankle injury, but played
late in the third quarter. Hutchin-
son has been a factor on the side-
lines all season encouraging his
teammates even though he could
not be on the field. It was good to
see Hutchinson on the field Fri-
day night. The Blue Devils next
game is at Cardinal Newman.
The game will start at .7:30 p.m.

Sugar harvesting underway for Bryant Mill plant


CLEWISTON Although the
2005-2006 harvest season was
delayed several days due to rain,
U.S. Sugar began harvesting sug-
arcane today on its eastern farms
for delivery to the Bryant Mill.
Harvest on the western farms for
delivery to the Clewiston Mill is
scheduled to begin next week.
With the harvest season expected
to run 172 days, the company is
scheduled to harvest 168,658
acres, yielding an estimated 6.3-
million tons of cane. Last year's
storm-riddled season produced
5.9 million tons.
"Although we continue to have
cane damage from the unprece-
dented hurricanes and heavy
rains last season, we had a good
growing season this summer and
are looking forward to a more
normal harvest," said Robert
Coker, senior vice president, pub-
lic affairs of Clewiston, Florida
based U.S. Sugar. "Even as har-
vest and processing begin, con-
struction continues as we expand
and modernize our Clewiston Mill
and Refinery. When completed in


2007, our Clewiston sugar pro-
cessing operations will be among
the largest and most efficient in
the world," Coker stated.
According to Coker, recent free
trade agreements and ongoing
negotiations with additional
sugar-producing foreign coun-
tries mean more foreign sugar
entering the U.S. market. The
increased efficiency of the new
milling operations is aimed at
ensuring that U.S. Sugar is com-
petitive into the future.
At a time when world sugar
prices are at a decade high,
domestic sugar prices remain sta-
ble. Though the deadly storm sea-
sons of the past two years have
caused significant losses among
Florida and Louisiana sugar pro-
ducers, they have had virtually no
effect on consumer sugar prices
- a fact directly attributable to
U.S. sugar policy, said Coker.
"These natural catastrophes,
combined with increasing U.S.
sugar consumption, could have
led to a real crisis," noted Coker.
"Yet sugar supplies and prices


have remained stable, because
U.S. sugar policy is flexible and
effective. If our nation's oil policy
worked as well as sugar policy
does, we wouldn't see those price
spikes at the gas pump."
Last year, Florida suffered an
unprecedented four hurricanes,
costing the state's sugar growers
- who produce one quarter of
the nation's sugar supply 30
percent of their crops and some
$300 million in lost revenues. This
year, southern Louisiana's sugar-
cane crop was devastated. First
hurt by Katrina, growers were hit
even harder by Rita, which
brought saltwater, 15 miles inland
and flooded crops under six feet
of water. The storms could cost
Louisiana sugar producers as
much as three-quarters of their
crop, a loss that could be felt for
years.
Immediately following Katri-
na, the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture allowed the release of an
industry-funded surplus sugar
reserve of 500,000 tons, and then
increased imports by about


200,000 tons. As a result, sugar
prices to individual consumers
and food companies, already
nearly a third lower than those of
other developed countries, will
stay stable.
The U.S. the world's largest
consumer of sugar and natural
sweeteners produces more
than 80 percent of these supplies
in a domestic free market that
operates at no cost to taxpayers. If
U.S. farmers produce more sugar
than they are allowed to sell,
based on annual government esti-
mates, they store the surplus at
their own expense. In times of
unforeseen shortages caused by
events such as hurricanes,
domestic surpluses and addition-
al imports address any shortfalls.
"U.S. sugar policy helps level
the playing field for efficient
domestic producers," Coker said.
"Without this policy, cheap for-
eign sugar imports could drive
domestic producers out of busi-
ness, making the U.S. completely
dependent on imported sugar.
And if our experience with


imported oil has taught us any- as possible over products that are
thing, it's the importance of essential to our economy and our
retaining as much independence people."

Citrus greening


- another threat to agriculture


During the past few weeks,
local citrus growers have been lis-
tening closely to the mass media,
fearing the much-dreaded news
that a new disease is in our neigh-
borhood. Unfortunately, it's on our
southern doorstep. On a 1-10 scale,
if Citrus Canker is a "three," Citrus
Greening is an imperfect "10".
Last week the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture reported that
some residential trees in Palm
Beach and Martin Counties have
been infected with citrus greening.
One of these sites is on the Mar-
tin/St. Lucie line, which puts it too
darn close to our area. It's time to
learn about this new threat to our
struggling citrus industry.
This past August, an entomolo-
gist with the Florida Division of
Plant Industry was conducting a
citrus pest survey in Homestead.
Two citrus trees in separate loca-
tions showed symptoms of citrus
greening. Shortly after that, another
residential site of this disease was
found on the Dade Broward Coun-


ty border. Lab tests have confirmed
that we have a new battle to win.
By early last week, 161 trees on
140 properties in Miami-Dade and
Broward Counties have been iden-
tified with this bacterial disease,
not including the Palm Beach and
Martin finds. The fear is that there
is more out there, just waiting for
surveys to uncover it.
Citrus greening is also known by
its Asia name of huanglongbing, or
yellow dragon disease. It is a bacter-
ial disease that attacks the vascular
system of plants. Once infected,
there is no cure for a tree with citrus
greening disease. In areas of the
world where citrus greening is
found, citrus trees decline and die
within a few years. This deadly dis-
ease does not affect humans or ani-
mals, only certain plants.
The bacteria are usually trans-
mitted by insects know as citrus
psyllids. In June 1998, the insect
that carries the Asian strain of cit-
rus greening (Diaphorina citri)
was found for the first time in the


U.S. in Delray Beach the inspec-
tor found no citrus greening infec-
tion at that time.
Because of the extreme threat
to Florida citrus, the Department of
Agriculture has been conducting a
citrus greening survey for many
years. Once the Asian citrus psyllid
was discovered here, citrus green-
ing survey efforts were intensified.
A survey in June 2000 found two
Okeechobee nurseries had plants
with this insect.
State and federal officials have
again intensified the survey to
identify how far this disease has
spread. Experts from the Universi-
ty of Florida and slate and federal
agricultural officials are quickly
mobilizing to combat this threat to
our agricultural industry.
Symptoms of citrus greening
disease look like plants with severe
nutritional deficiencies: Yellow
shoots, twig dieback, tree decline
and reduced fruit size and quality.
Often only a single branch israffect-
ed at first. Older leaves develop


patches of discoloration. The
inside of the fruit is lopsided and is
inedible due to poor taste. The fruit
will drop off before ripening and
has poor color.
To confirm the presence of this
disease, a complex molecular test
is needed. Infected trees may live
for 5-8 years, but never produce
usable fruit. If allowed to live, the
trees can provide a source of infec-
tion for other plants. Research on
how to deal with this disease is
ongoing, but here's what we know:
A list of the plants that can be
affected by this deadly bacterial
disease include all of the well
know citrus fruit trees, plus a few
other plants that are sometimes
seen as ornamentals in our Florida
Yards: Orange jasmine, jackfruit
and limeberry.
A common landscape bush,
Orange Jasmine has been impli-
cated as a real problem plant, as it
seems to be very attractive to both


the Greening disease and the Cit-
rus Psyllid insect that can carry this
"yellow dragon" from one plant to
another.
The citrus psyllid has spread
around the state on orange jas-
mine plants, and almost all new
insect discoveries were in discount
garden centers.
African citrus psyllids can fly
about a mile, which is an area
almost seven times the quarantine
area for citrus canker. We don't
know the distance that Asian citrus
psyllids can fly. It's thought that if
we can get rid of the insects, we
may not have to cut down as many
trees.
It is thought that South Florida
high-risk areas include farms that
supply local ethnic markets or
those nurseries with a potential
history of importing illegal plant
material.
Please be on the lookout for the
citrus psyllid insect and for citrus


trees that show the symptoms
described above. As with canker, if
you suspect that your. plants might
be affected by this disease,
PLEASE DO NOT BRING CITRUS
SAMPLES TO OUR OFFICE! Call us
and talk with one of our agents or
Master Gardeners, who will discus
your situation, and if necessary,
have appropriate authorities visit
your site. With your help, we can
slay this yellow dragon.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee Web page,

ter Gardeners from 1-5 p.m. on

Alico inspectors: More canker


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ:ALCO), one of the South's
best-known agribusiness compa-
nies operating in Central and
Southwest Florida, was recently
informed by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Consumer
Services that citrus canker was con-
firmed in Alico's 2 X 6 grove located
in Hendry County, Florida.
John R. Alexander, chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "This
is the third canker find in our
groves this year. The company's
in-house canker inspectors dis-
covered the disease early and
hopefully the early detection will
minimize the loss."


To date, the three canker finds
have led to the destruction of
approximately 940 acres of the
company's 11,147 producing citrus
acres.
All of the trees in this grove are
covered under the Federal Crop
Insurance program. A net loss of
approximately $610,000, consisting
of tree development costs and
inventoried costs less tax benefits
and expected insurance reim-
bursements will be recorded in the
fourth quarter of fiscal 2005 as the
canker existed at that time. Addi-
tionally, under the Florida Canker
Eradication Program, citrus may
not be replanted on the property


until it has been determined that
the property has been canker-free
for two years. Accordingly, the
company is evaluating the property
for its best future use. The 2 X 6
grove is not contiguous to other
company groves.
Citrus canker is a highly conta-
gious bacterial disease of citrus that
causes premature leaf and fruit
drop. Citrus canker causes no
threat to humans, animals or plant
life other than citrus. In order to
eradicate the disease, infected and
exposed trees within 1,900 feet of
the canker find must be removed
and destroyed in accordance with
Florida law.


Florida's Gulf drilling: No solution


Martinez reiterates
that conversation
is the key
WASHINGTON, DC U.S.
Senator Mel Martinez (R-FL)
brought before the Senate Ener-
gy and Natural Resources Com-
mittee testimony that expanding
drilling in Florida's portion of the
Gulf of Mexico would have no


impact on current gas prices.
A full committee hearing took
place to receive an update on
hurricanes Katrina and Rita's
effects on the nation's energy
infrastructure and the status of
recovery efforts in the Gulf Coast
region. Senator Martinez ques-
tioned the impact of expanding
drilling in the Gulf.
"Some of my congressional
colleagues insist that the high


price of gasoline is the impetus
for expanding drilling in the Gulf.
I think the public ought to know
the fact that expanding drilling in
the Gulf will have zero impact on
current gas prices," said Mar-
tinez. "Today we heard clearly
from the head of the American
Petroleum Institute that expand-
ing drilling in the Gulf will have
no impact on the current price
crisis."


Scrapped Taiwanese longline


vessels a boon for sea turtles


FOREST KNOLLS, CALIF -
The Taiwanese government has
just announced that it will dis-
mantle 120 tuna longline vessels,
about five percent of its fleet.
Environmentalists are praising
this reduction in the largest long-
line fleet in the Pacific as a boon
for sea turtles, which are injured
and killed by longlines in large
numbers in the Pacific ocean.
"Longline fishing is costly,
inefficient and 'damages tuna
fisheries. There are just far too
many boats chasing too few fish
and killing far too many sea tur-
tles," said Robert Ovetz, PhD,
Save the Leatherback Campaign
Coordinator.
It is estimated that more than
1.4 billion longline hooks are set
in the world's oceans every year.
Longline fishing is a technique in
which thousands of baited hooks
are strung on monofilament
lines stretching as far as 60 miles.
Taiwan has the largest number of
longline vessels in the Pacific
with an estimated 2,113 vessels
in the Pacific alone. Japan, which
has the second largest longline


fleet in the Pacific, has also fol-
lowed suit with reductions in.
recent years. This summer, the
U.S. even banned fishing for
Pacific bigeye tuna for the rest of
the year because of over fishing.
"Fewer hooks means fewer
turtles, sharks, seabirds, billfish
and marine mammals will be
killed. This is urgently needed if
we are to turn around the
descent of sea turtles and alba-
tross seabirds into extinction,"
Ovetz added.
Recent scientific reports warn
that the 100-million-year-old
Pacific leatherback sea turtles,
whose female nesting popula-
tion has collapsed by 95 percent
since 1980, could go extinct in
the next decade. Nineteen
species of seabirds, including the
black-footed albatross, are also
threatened with extinction by
longlines. An estimated 4.4 mil-
lion turtles, sharks, seabirds, bill-
fish and marine mammals are
injured and killed every year by
longlines in the Pacific. Other
reports have pinpointed longline
fishing as causing an 87-99-per-


cent decline in large pelagic fish
in the Atlantic, Gulf of Mexico
and the Pacific.
One thousand and seven
international scientists from 97
countries are urging the UN to
implement a moratorium on
longline fishing in the Pacific
Ocean to prevent the extinction
of the critically endangered
leatherback sea turtle. The scien-
tists are joined by 281 non-gov-
ernmental organizations from 62
countries. The list of signers
includes famed primatologist Dr.
Jane Goodall, biologist E.O. Wil-
son, oceanographer Dr. Sylvia
Earle, a National Geographic
Explorer-in-Residence, and for-
mer U.S. astronaut Bernard Har-
ris, Jr. M.D:
"While a good first step, a
moratorium is needed in order to
have time to put into place fur-
ther reductions in fishing capaci-
ty and other conservation meas-
ures, such as time and area
closures, reductions in subsidies,
100% observer coverage and
controls on illegal fishing," Ovetz
said.
