Woman found dead in motel


INI/Bill Fabian
A woman found dead in a Clewiston motel room was report-
edly an employee of Miami-Dade Schools Police, and had
been in Clewiston to look for property. The wounds were ini-
tially determined to have been self-inflicted.


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON -A grisly discov-
ery was made in a Clewiston
motel last week, right before the
Thanksgiving holiday.
According to the Clewiston
Police Department, a woman was
found dead from an apparent gun-
shot wound in the Plaza Travel Inn
on U.S. 27.
The woman, who was a resi-
dent of Opa-Locka in Miami, was
found dead in her motel room in
an apparent suicide that led to the
discovery by a motel employee.


Happy Thanksgiving: Feast for everyone


INI/Bill Fabian
Members of First United Methodist Church in Clewiston and volunteers from Ft. Myers
prepared a Thanksgiving feast open to the public on Nov. 24.


Details of the woman's identity
and age were not released, pend-
.ing further investigation and notifi-
cation of family members.
According to CPD Assistant
Chief Capt. Kristine Petersen, the
wounds appeared to have been
self-inflicted, and no foul play was
suspected upon initial investiga-
tion.
Autopsy reports also provided
evidence to confirm that the death
was a suicide, said Capt. Petersen.
Further information will not be
available until toxicology reports
are released, which could take up


to six weeks.
The woman was found on
Tuesday, Nov. 22. According to
nearby witnesses, authorities
were at the motel for several
hours, working to investigate the
crime scene and remove the body.
An unverified source from a
Miami law. enforcement authority
informed the Clewiston News that
the woman was an employee
with the Miami-Dade School
Police, but the capacity of her
employment was not made clear.
See Suicide Page 10


Red Cross to



close shelter


CLEWISTON No sooner
than the terrifying winds
began to slowly subside, dark-
ness crept upon hundreds of
evacuees sheltered at dam-
aged schools and people dis-
placed from their homes due
to devastating damage. Hurri-
cane weary victims began
arriving at the municipal city
building, the John Boy Audito-
rium, with their meager
rations, their bedding, their
children; some with just the
clothes on their backs.
Much confusion ensued
thereafter, as the rear of the
John Boy Auditorium known
as The Beardsley Room, was
already operating as a Special
Needs shelter, operated by
Hendry County Health Depart-


ment staff and county officials
as well as Emergency Opera-
tions Center staff.
.Many people teamed
,through the back door of the
building, grabbing special
needs cots along the way. The
special needs.shelter manager,
Joanne Vorhees; ARNP, was
finally able to ascertain that
those arriving were directed to
enter through the main body
of the auditorium to be shel-
tered by the Red Cross.
Due to the lack of genera-
tors at Central Elementary and
Clewision Middle School, and
structural damage, consider-
ably large 'at Central, it was
deemed to be unsafe to
See Shelter Page 10


HRMC resumes



full services


At least 153 individuals were served Thanksgiving dinners at the FUMC's Life Enrich-
ment Center, and an additional 80 to 90 meals were delivered to various homes
throughout the community.


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Hendry,
Regional Medical Center has
returned to fully operational
status after just more than a
month of repairs and inspec-
tions by state agencies follow-
ing Hurricane Wilma.
The final approval by the
state to resume inpatient and
elective surgery services was
handed down to HRMC on Fri-
day, Nov. 25.
The majority of the hospi-
tal's departments have been


fully functional for several
weeks, including emergency,
laboratory, pharmacy, radia-
tion, rehabilitation and
administrative departments,
all of which have been in
working order since Oct. 31.
However, the hospital was
unable to reopen its inpatient
services and elective surgery
functions until inspections by
the state of Florida cleared the
medical center for full opera-
tional status.
See Hospital Page 10


Medical offices still closed


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Many stores
and businesses in Clewiston
have been able to resume nor-
mal operations one month after
Hurricane Wilma, but there are
still significant numbers of busi-
nesses with too much damage
to be able to reopen, primarily
due to roof damage, as well as
flooring and equipment dam-
ages.
The central offices of Dr.
Edward Vickers are one of those
businesses that have yet to
reopen since the storm. Accord-
ing to the chiropractor, the dam-
age to the building will not be
fully repaired until perhaps as
late as the first of next year.
"The storm caused very
major roof damage, especially
on the northwest side, causing a
lot of water intrusion," said Dr.
Vickers. "Large areas of the ceil-
ings and flooring materials had
to be removed due to the
water," he said.
The building appears to
have been stripped bare from
the inside, with just the con-
crete floor exposed to the attic,
where one can also see the
blue tarp roof from the inside


of the building.
"Thankfully, there were no
losses of any of our records,
since we were able to block
the water intrusion from going
into certain areas within the
inner parts of the office," said
Dr. Vickers.
All patients, emergency and
chronic care cases, have been
referred by Dr. Vickers to other
recommended practitioners in
the area until the offices can be
reopened.
"These offices will be closed
indefinitely until at least the first
of January, until we can get the
floors and ceilings restored.
Then we can move the major
equipment pieces back into the
office," said Dr. Vickers.
The timetable of being
closed until the first of next year
is similar to that of Central Ele-
mentary, which will keep ele-
mentary students and staff on
an altered schedule until repairs
can be completed on the Cen-
tral Elementary School facility.
City officials maintain the
early report of the number of
homes deemed uninhabitable
due to damage by Hurricane
Wilma. The report counts
approximately 450 such


homes, in and around the
Clewiston locale, according to
the city's Web site. In addition,
an estimated 250 homes are
said to be heavily damaged,
but still habitable and able to
be repaired.
Additional information pro-
vided by a statement released by
the city mentioned some dam-
age to its infrastructure, most of
which has since been repaired.
"Many county buildings have
been damaged and will be tem-
porarily relocated to other facili-
ties. The city of Clewiston has
experienced damage to some of
its buildings, too; however, all
offices are open and services,
including garbage collection
and utilities, have been resumed
to customers. Parks are open,
including Sugarland Park.
Hendry County Schools had
serious damage, resulting in
double sessions for the East-
side/Westside Elementary
Schools and Central Elementary
School. Agricultural crops have
been destroyed with between
50 to 70 percent of the early cit-
rus crop on the ground and sug-
arcane flattened, making har-
vest difficult."


INI/BIII Fabian
The chiropractic offices of Dr. Edward Vickers were severely
damaged by Hurricane Wilma. The offices will be closed
indefinitely, until at least after the first of next year.

Pet of the Week winner


Fluff was once a lost dog, scared, dirty, hungry, and very
sick. But she found her way to Bruce and Carol Butler of
Moore Haven who had just lost their dog one week before
when the dog was hit by a speeding car. She was a hand-
ful for the Butlers, both physically and emotionally, but all
is well now as Fluff has become a happy, healthy, loving
family member. Fluff's rough adventures on the streets,
and then suffering and surviving a bout of heartworms
has earned a day of pampering at Doc Savvy's Animal
Hospital in Belle Glade, as this week's Pet of the Week
winner. Doc Savvy can be reached at (561) 996-5500. If
you have any interesting photos of your pet and a story to
tell, submit them to myoung@newszap.com for a chance
to win your pet a day at the spa, sponsored by Doc
Savvy's Animal Hospital.

Observe food safety


rules for leftovers


For many people, the best part
about Thanksgiving is the left-
overs. The bad news: Unless you
froze the leftover turkey and
dressing, it's time to throw it out.
According to the USDA Food
Safety Hotline, cooked turkey and
dressing may be kept in the refrig-
erator for three to four days. Gravy
has a shorter shelf life and may be
safely stored in the refrigerator for
one to two days.
Whether frozen or refrigerat-
ed, leftover turkey and dressing
should be reheated thoroughly to
a temperature of 165 degrees
Fahrenheit before consumption.
Leftover vegetable casseroles
(which contain no meat) may be
safely refrigerated for up to one
week. They should also be reheat-
ed thoroughly before consump-
tion.
Cakes and pies may be stored
longer although this question
rarely comes up. Cakes and pies
contain sugar, which is a natural
preservative. Pies made with eggs
and/or cream, such as pumpkin
pie, Sweet Potato pie or coconut
cream pie, should be kept in the
refrigerator.
The USDA Meat and Poultry
Hotline answers food safety ques-
tions. This toll-free telephone
service, which began July 1, 1985,
helps prevent food-borne illness
specifically by answering ques-
tions about the safe storage, han-
dling, and preparation of meat,
poultry, and egg products. The
Hotline is staffed by food safety
specialists with backgrounds in

home economics, nutrition, and
food technology.
Callers may speak with a food
safety specialist in English or
Spanish from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
(Eastern Standard Time) on
weekdays year round. An exten-
sive menu of recorded food safety
messages may be heard 24 hours
a day. Dial the nationwide toll-free
number, 1-888-MPHotline (1-888-
674-6854). The toll-free number
for the hearing impaired (TTY) is
1-800-256-7072.
The Hotlife is closed on Feder-
al government holidays, with the
exception of Thanksgiving Day.
Hours of operation on Thanksgiv-
ing are 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Questions about food safety
may also be e-mailed to: mphot-
line.fsis@usda.gov.
Before making any change to
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription drugs. Some drugs
interact badly with foods that
would otherwise be considered
"healthy".

Don't change it
Dear editor:
The local cable television com-
pany, Adelphia, has evidently
made a decision to change the
local channel lineup. I thought it
was a temporary move to provide
us with a CBS affiliate during the
hurricane damage restoration
phase. This decision will result in
WINK being eliminated from our
lineup in favor of a CBS affiliate
from West Palm. This was a
scheduled channel change before
the storm according to what I
hear. I pay a large cable television
subscription bill every month, no
one asked my opinion.
Before hurricane Wilma came
to visit our area, the Ft. Myers
based WINK meteorologists were
giving our community important
information regarding the poten-
tial path and strength of this storm


- telling the inland communities
to be aware. West Palm Beach
was stating that the storm would
be a category one or a tropical
storm when it reached the (their)
area. Who was right?
This past Thanksgiving, our
Clewiston High School Tigers
went to play the state semi final
football game at Dolphin Stadium
in Miami. Along with hundreds of
parents and friends, WINK news
came along from Ft. Myers. I was
there cheering the Tigers on, I did-
n't see any one from West Palm
covering our community's
accomplishments.
While I realize everything is a
numbers game, and Adelphia is a
West Palm based company, I wish
that the residents of this commu-
nity and all other inland commu-
nities think about this change. I
urge you to call if you feel the
same as I do, call Adelphia to stop


this change before it becomes
permanent. Also call WINK to
thank them for their coverage.
We do not live on the coast
with the thousands of people
demanding attention to their
news, events etc., we live inland
and we have fewer demands but
they are important to us. When
we shop out of town, we go to
West Palm Beach, Fort Myers,
Miami. I, for one, prefer the west
coast of Florida when I shop out
of town or want to go out to din-
ner. I also prefer to spend my
money where we are at least
acknowledged. WINK, thank you
for following our athletes during
football season every Friday night
on your local high school sports
news highlights. Thank you for
traveling to Miami with our com-
munity!
Growth is coming to the inland
communities for the reasons we


have known all along. Let's keep
WINK, we should have a choice.
CindyBames.

Big hog, big gains
Dear editor:
Barnyard Blessings 4-H Club of
Plant City, Florida, raised a market,
swine named Hurricane to auction
at the first annual Hillsborough
County Fair Swine Show. The
money raised from the sale of Hur-
ricane will be used to help 4-H vic-
tims in the Clewiston area as well
as other neighboring areas affect-
ed from Hurricane Wilma.
Hurricane was purchased by
Piccadilly's Restaurant in Brandon,
Florida, for $55 per pound totaling
$13,035. A special thank you goes
out to the Barnyard Blessing's 4-H
Club as well as the Piccadilly's.
Thanks,

Will work for blessings and God's love


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
We've all seen them. Standing
at some street corner holding a
sign that reads, "Will Work For
Food." Our hearts go out to them.
Here is a person that is down on
his luck and in a desperate
attempt is will-
ing to do any-
thing to put
food in his
mouth and in
the mouth of
his family.
Unfortu-
nately, what
we see is not
always what is John
there. I've seen Hicks
people who
were down and out and really
were willing to work at whatever
task to put bread on the table. On
the other hand, I am aware that
many panhandlers know that
people have a generous heart for
those in need, and so put out the
will work for food sign. I've seen a


man with his dog at the same
intersection for years, holding the
same sign, "Will Work for Food"
and then for extra good measure,
"God Bless You".
I've seen a man with a will
work for food sign with literally
dozens of McDonald's hamburg-
ers at his feet gifts from people
driving by. It wasn't food he was
interested in it was other
things. And I've seen groups of
people taking turns working an
intersection, trading their "will
work for food" sign like a relay
runners' baton in a race. Obvious-
ly, they were out for what they
could get for themselves.
Let me introduce you to some
other people. These are people
who bless others with no thought
of personal compensation or
recognition. They give of them-
selves above and beyond the call
of duty. Our community has seen
and experienced their presence
and has been blessed by the result
of their efforts many times since
Hurricane Wilma. Many of them
do what they do and like the Lone


Ranger, disappear quietly before
we can adequately thank them.
Their greatest reward is the bless-
ing they receive from blessing
others.
So we thank God for all of you
unsung heroes who have blessed
us in ways some may not even
have realized. For the power
crews who got us electricity back;
for those who cleared our streets
and helped our city get back on
our feet; for our firefighters and
law enforcement personnel, for
the many who sent water and
food to our community and to
the many who still are sending
help; for the work crews and
teams who come here to help out
(some even came from Califor-
nia!). As an added note, there will
be a number of work teams com-
ing to our area to help from Dec.
6-10. If you have a non-financial
need they might help with, call
983-5269. We will get to as many
as we can.
The list continues! We give
thanks for the many churches
who are. giving beyond their nor-


mal selves to help and minister to
our community; to the 64 plus
volunteers who came to Clewis-
ton from the west coast of Florida
to spend their Thanksgiving help-
ing bring the spirit of Thanksgiv-
ing to us; to those who are giving
now so that families will have a
Christmas this year in the midst of
recovery; and to the many who
continue to give of themselves for
the betterment of others; they
are blessings! These are people
who are not out for what they can
get for themselves, but for what
they can give for others.
Paradoxically, when I have
tried to thank some of them for
their efforts, most have thanked
me and shared that is was they
themselves who were blessed.
The truth is we can't out-give
God. The more we give, the more
we receive. The more we bless,
the more we are blessed.
I think I will stand out on a
street corner and hold up a sign
that reads, "Will Work For Bless-
ings!" Will you join me?


The season of advent a time to be a visionary


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I am sure that many of our earli-
est inventors did not foresee what
would become of their work. The
first aviators would not have imag-
ined that they ,-.:%i :s I
paved the way
for the quick
travel around -.~
the world that '
comes from air-
planes trips.. J
I don't think
that Bell imag-
ined that peo-
pie would be Samuel S.
driving down Thomas
the road talking
on a cell phone around the world
.or that Marconi would have envi-
sioned people talking from the
moon or space via radio.
They were great pioneers as
well as inventors their works
were not only new inventions but
they laid the foundations for the
world to be changed as a result of


what they did. We are now getting
ready to celebrate another earth-
changing occasion with the birth of
a "pioneer" in his own right. The
difference is that Jesus would have
known that the message he.
brought and the work that he
begun was so that the world would
be radically changed ever after.
We can look at what our early
discovers did and imagine that only
a few people around them under-
stood what it all meant. It was true
for Jesus' followers too. His com-
mand that they should "go there-
fore and make disciples
nations...(Mathew 28:19)" was a
long way from the call that the dis-
ciples had heard a few years earlier
as they were cleaning their nets or
sitting at customs. The vision came
slowly and gradually until their
lives were changed and the world
was a different place as a result.
We begin a season in the
church year now known as
"Advent". The time is set aside to
get ready for the celebration of
Christmas and preparing for the
coming of the Lord once more. I


think it is also a time of having a
vision too. The coming of the Lord
as an infant in a small outlying
country, born to humble parents,
starting life-in an :out-of-the-way
manager certainly requires vision-
aries to see that the world would
be changed because of that birth.
Perhaps there were three wise
men who saw that something
great had happened and that the
world would be changed per-
haps a tyrant king that wanted
Jesus killed was fearful that his
world would be turned upside
down, but they were certainly a
small minority. For the man on the
street, there wasn't much different
- at first. Little by little, generation
by generation, continent by conti-
nent, the world was to be changed
as a result of this beginning. Now
we are standing once more in the
face of the coming of the Lord into
the world. A part of the changes
that were unimagined when the
Lord was born have come to pass.
The reminder of the promises
that Jesus came to bring have yet to
be seen. This is a time for us to be


the visionaries and look forward.
As we are getting ready for Christ-
mas, it is the time to see the words
spoken, at the first Christmas,
"Peace on Earth, Good will toward
men "as-a vision we will see one
day as the Lord wants. We have
gone into all the world, but we still
have many hearts to change, many
gifts to bring, many problems to
resolve and many divisions to heal.
This Advent, though, we can
look forward and see that the
promises begun at the first Christ-
mas are not hidden for us and
we can work to see that we do our
part in being visionaries by know-
ing that the dream will become a
reality.
Advent is a time of "getting
ready" but our Advent has a
tremendous advantage we
know what the Lord intends for us
and for his world and we can
work to bring it in. The Lord has
given us all the power to be vision-
aries and we can make this Advent
one step closer to his coming at
Christmas and once more when he
will see his vision fulfilled for us all.


Partners to combat hunger in wake of disasters


Over the past several months,
Hurricanes Katrina, Wilma and
Rita ravaged our Gulf Coast states.
Through our joint efforts with
states, food banks, faith and com-
munity-based organizations; and
schools, hundreds of thousands of
the victims were able to receive
meals and emergency food boxes
at shelters, and more than 960,000
households received over $550
million in emergency food stamps
to feed their families.
Food Banks across the country
shipped more than 1,700 truck-
loads of food from their own
inventories to the states across the
affected region. While we are
proud of the creativity and flexibili-
ty in meeting the needs, we
remain steadfast in our combined
effort to achieve real, lasting
results in reducing and preventing
hunger.
Combating hunger across
America requires leadership,
commitment and partnerships at
all levels. Our nation's 15 domes-
tic nutrition assistance programs
including Food Stamps, schools
meals, commodity food donation
programs and Women, Infants
and Children (WIC), serve one-in-
five Americans each day.
Our nation has a long and dis-
tinguished record of providing
nutrition assistance to our chil-
dren, low-income families and the
elderly.
That's why we are working in a
public-private partnership ensur-
ing that all who are eligible know
about the Federal nutrition assis-
tance programs. Helping needy
individuals and families access
these programs with dignity and
respect has been, and continues
to be, a high priority for the presi-
dent, Secretary Johanns, Under


Secretary Bost and our partners.
Our partners, including states,
national anti-hunger organiza-
tions, food banks, faith and com-
munity based organizations, and
schools are critical in our joint
efforts to serve those in need.
Our combined efforts to make
nutrition assistance more accessi-
ble to more people have been suc-
cessful. Since 2001, 5.8 million
more eligible people are receiving
food stamps; 1.6 million more
children receive a free or reduced
price school lunch; over 1.5 mil-
lion more children receive school
breakfast and over 400,000 more
women, infants and children
receive assistance through WIC.
These investments and
achievements serve as the foun-
dation for the work that remains
to be done. But there is still need
and with your assistance, we can
do more to meet that need.
In the aftermath of the hurri-
canes, all of us are reminded that
many of our fellow citizens contin-
ue to need help. And even today,
many individuals and families
who are eligible for our nutrition
assistance programs do not partic-
ipate. The American spirit is a gen-
erous one we have witnessed
the outpouring of courage, kind-
ness and generosity over the last
several months and throughout
history. So, what more can be
done?
As the holidays approach, you
can positively affect the lives of
others through some simple acts.
Additional partners, individuals,
and organizations are needed at
the community, state and federal
level to ensure that all who are eli-
gible for nutrition assistance can
receive it with dignity and respect.
In your community, through your


local food banks, food pantries,
and soup kitchens, you can help
by volunteering time or donating
money and food. You can help us
to ensure that those in need know


about our federal nutrition pro-
grams. You have the power to
make a difference and we invite
each of you to join us in reducing
hunger right here at home.

blue roof for a charge," said Ltc.
Andrew Goetz, deputy com-
mander of the Wilma Recovery
Office, in West Palm Beach. "Any-
one offering to install a blue roof


for a fee is absolutely not associ-

"If you are approached by any-
one asking for payment to install
a FEMA Blue Roof, please report
them to local law enforcement
authorities," stated Dennis Hen-
ley, security officer for the Jack-

Crist asks appeals court to reconsider case


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist asked a state
appeals court to reconsider its
decision regarding photographs
and videotapes in the Carlie Bru-
cia case and to certify the legal
question in order to have the
Florida Supreme Court review the
case as a "matter of great public
importance."
In his motion for rehearing,
Crist said the Second District
Court of Appeal was mistaken in
concluding that a right exists to
view crime scene and autopsy
photos and videos in the brutal
murder of 11-year-old Carlie Bru-
cia. The Attornel General said pri-
vacy rights guaranteed b\ lth
Florida Constitution take priority
over the statutes cited by the
appeals court when it granted the
request to review the photos.
"Even in death, Carlie Brucia


has a right to have her privacy
protected," said Crist. "Her family
does not deserve to be trauma-
tized by the thought of anyone -
other than those required to con-
vict her killer viewing images
of her in the condition she was
discovered."
In asking the appeals court to
certify a question to the Florida
Supreme Court, the attorney gen-
eral-said the appeals court's earli-
er decision would potentially
impact the rights of all citizens
who have been or will become
victims of any crime, if photos of
their bodies would be admitted as
evidence. This would also apply
to the rights of \ictim's families.
The court's decision could affect
the state's ability to prosecute
crimes if victims object to having
such photos entered into evi-
dence for fear they would be


viewed and eventually dissemi-
nated in newspapers or the Inter-
net.
"Florida's Constitution
expressly provides a right to priva-
cy, a privilege which the Legisla-
ture has determined creates in
victims a right to non-disclosure
of private images of the victim
taken at the crime scene and or
during an autopsy," Crist's motion
states.
Crist's motion cites the privacy
right created by Article I, Section
23 of the Florida Constitution, as
well as the Dale Earnhardt Law
and other statutory privacy pro-
tections for victims and their fami-
lies Th- motion asserts tligt a
court i-i'a r'-'.' rtl public access
to photos and videos depicting
the victim, even where the images
have been introduced into evi-
dence in the accused attacker's


trial.
"Florida's .Legislature has
made the direct determination
that the privacy right inherent in
our Constitution provides a basis
for exemption of images like the
ones herein from the public
record," Crist's motion says.
"The state rejects the con-
tention that the exposure of these
gruesome images to individuals
who are required to view them in
connection with their obligation
to enforce the law, investigate
crimes, prosecute crimes and sit
in judgment of the accused is
equivalent to exposing the
images to the public at large, or
that such exposure erodes the pri-
vacy privilege expressly estab-
lished by the Legislature to pro-
tect victims from the public
display of such images," the
motion adds.


Foley secures transportation projects funding


WASHINGTON Congress-
man Mark Foley (FL-16)
announced that the House of
Representatives has approved the
transportation conference report
that includes funds Foley had
requested for transportation proj-
ects. The bill now goes to the
president's desk for his signature.
Included in the legislation are:
$250,000 to widen Burnt Store
Road emergency evacuation
times from Charlotte and Lee
Counties are unacceptably high.
The Burnt Store Road evacuation
route, which services over
250,000 residents in Charlotte and
Lee Counties, requires 17.3-hour
clearance time for a Category
Three hurricane during peak sea-
son.
Emergency management offi-
cials typically issue a mandatory
pre-landfall warning 18 hours in
advance, meaning residents and
business owners in the Burnt
Store evacuation zone would
have only half an hour to safely
evacuate. The current road is a
two-lane road and has no divider
and no lighting, making it.


extremely dangerous with its high
volume of traffic. The funds
would be used for engineering
and right of way acquisition.
"Widening Burnt Store Road
will improve traffic safety every
single day, but it will also ensure
that in the most dire of circum-
stances, evacuations can occur
more quickly and safely," said
Foley.
$500,000 for buses in St. Lucie
County for the purchase of
buses to expand the feeder routes
for the fixed route bus system that
was instituted on the main corri-
dor of U.S. Highway 1 from the
northern end of the county, south
into Martin County.
"St. Lucy County has experi-
enced exponential growth over
the past few years. We are looking
for ways to keep our roads safe
while providing people with
access to jobs and opportunities
that would otherwise be out of
reach," said Foley.
$250,000 for Palm Tran for
the replacement of buses, as Palm
Tran's ridership has increased and
its routes have expanded and the


purchase of vehicle locators to aid
in the dispatching of buses.
"In November 2004, rider-ship
on Palm Tran was up more than
26 percent from November of
2003 based on the same number
of buses operating countywide.
Palm Tran began service in
1996 with 20 buses on seven
routes and has more than tripled
those numbers. The mounting
transportation needs of our resi-
dents and visitors has made this
funding important," said Foley.
These projects are in addition
to the projects Mr. Foley
announced with the passage of
TEA-LU earlier this year:
$4 million for construction of a
new bridge at 'Indian Street in
Martin County, $2.4 million for the
widening of West Virginia Drive
from Floresta Drive to U.S. 1 in St.
Lucie County, $2 million for the
construction of bridges on SR710
in Palm Beach County, $1.6 mil-
lion to widen Midway Road from
South 25th Street to U.S. 1 in St.
Lucie County, $80'0,000 to con-
struct new east-west road from
intersection of Beeline Hwy. and

tivate possible pathogens, because the health benefits of disinfection far outweigh its risks.
However, when used in the treatment of drinking water, some disinfectants combine with
organic and inorganic matter present in the water to form chemicals called disinfection
byproducts (DBP's). A number of DBP's such as Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and
Haloacetic Acids (HAA5's) may be a health concern at certain levels of exposure.
The Department has reveiwed the laboratory analysis results for the fifth consecutive quar-
terly set of samples for TTHM's collected on August 24, 2005, as well as the second, third,
and fourth quarterly sets of TTHM sample results from the Lakeport Water Association pub-
lic drinking water system. The laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collected on
November 30, 2004, March 1, 2005, May 9, 2005 and August 24, 2005 now indicate a run-
ning annual average TTHM concentration of 92.55 micorgrams per liter (ug/L). Therefore,
the Department has determined that this water system has generated a Maximum
Contaminant Level (MCL) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida
Administrative Code (EA.C.), identifies the MCL for TTHM's as 80 ug/L.
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maximum
Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with their liver, kid-
neys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
This is not an immediate risk, however, until the problem is corrected, any customers who
are concerned about their exposure to TTHM's may wish to use alternative sources of water
for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treated by an appropriate home
water treatment device. Appropriate home water treatment devises are those certified by the
National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for reducing TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?


The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treatment
plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is to begin no later than September, 2005,
with construction schedule indicating completion in March of 2007.

FEMA grants are to help pay for housing needs Formore localnews, visitwww.newszap.com


Eligible applicants
urged to handle
checks wisely
ORLANDO With thou-
sands of rental assistance checks
being distributed to hurricane
victims in Florida, state and fed-
eral disaster recovery officials
are urging recipients to handle
the money with caution and use
the funds to pay for their housing
needs.
Providing the means for tem-
porary housing for disaster vic-
tims is the primary focus of the
Individuals and Households pro-
gram of the Department of
Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management
Agency. Those with damages to
their home may be eligible to
receive money to pay for another
place to live while they repair
their home, a grant to help in the
replacement of a destroyed
home or a grant to help with
minimal repairs that will make
the home safe and sanitary. In
areas where viable places to rent
are hard to find, direct housing
assistance may be offered in the
form of a travel trailer or mobile
home.
Justin DeMello, federal coor-
dinating officer, said that experi-
ence shows that disaster assis-
tance checks become
problematic for some recipients
in every disaster.
"This is a time when people


are particularly vulnerable and
predators are quick to take
advantage of them," said DeMel-
lo. "When dealing with hun-
dreds or thousands of dollars,
caution is the operative word."
A letter describing the eligibil-
ity decision for assistance, the
grant amount, if any, and the
intended use of the grant is
mailed to each applicant by
FEMA. The disaster assistance
checks are processed and
mailed to applicants by the U.S.
Department of the Treasury. Or,
if requested by the applicant, the
grant is deposited in the appli-
cant's account through an elec-
tronic funds transfer.
For example, in the body of
the letter for an applicant who
qualifies for temporary rental
assistance it will state "Rental
Assistance" and list the amount
of the grant. This grant is to be
used to address the cost of rent-
ing another place to live.
To help in locating places to
rent, a free service is available
online at www.dhronline.org.
People who need a place to rent
can search the Disaster Housing
Resources Web site by location,
monthly rent or number of bed-
rooms.
More information about what
the FEMA grants should be spent
on can be found in the "Help
After a Disaster" booklet sent to
all those who registered with
FEMA. If an applicant has ques-
tions regarding a check received

Seacost and Big Lake expected to seal merger


STUART Seacoast Banking
Corporation of Florida (Nasdaq:
SBCF) and Big Lake Financial
Corporation ("Big Lake")
announced the signing of a defin-
itive merger agreement.
Big Lake, headquartered in
Okeechobee, will add approxi-
mately $312 million in assets,
$200 million in loans and $286
million in deposits, as well as
nine offices in six Central Florida
counties where it is the region's
largest community bank.
"We are pleased to be
expanding into these markets
and the opportunity they pro-
vide," said Dennis Hudson, chair-
man-and CEO. "Florida's coastal
communities are rapidly grow-
ing, prompting business and
industry to look inland for manu-
facturing, distribution and more
affordable housing. The result is
an increasing growth in popula-
tion and business activity in these
Central Florida markets. The geo-
graphic area served by Big Lake
is a natural extension of our
existing operations in the Palm
Beach, Treasure Coast and
Orlando market areas."
Two members of Big Lake's
board, Edwin E. Walpole, III,
CEO and owner of Walpole, Inc.,
a nationwide trucking concern,
and H. Gilbert Culbreth, Jr., CEO
and owner of Gilbert Chevrolet
Co. and Gil Culbreth Realtors,
will join the board of First Nation-
al Bank and Trust Company of
the Treasure Coast ("First Nation-
al"), a Seacoast banking sub-
sidiary, upon the merger of Big
Lake National Bank into First
National.
I "We are delighted that Joe G.
Mullins, who has served for over
16 years as president of Big Lake,
and his team will continue to
lead our efforts in serving Okee-
chobee, Highlands, Glades,


Hardee, Hendry and DeSoto
Counties," said Jean Strickland,
president of First National. Fol-
lowing the merger, Mullins will
serve as president of First Nation-
al's big lake region.
"We cannot conceive of a bet-
ter partner to help us build upon
our home-town banking tradi-
tion," said Edwin E. Walpole, III,
chairman of Big Lake. "A prede-
cessor to First National operated
until 1933 in Okeechobee, as Citi-
zens Bank of Okeechobee. Sea-
coast's roots extend back to its
founding many years ago in our
town. Today, as our community
has grown, so have its banking
needs. Our alignment with
another high quality, local com-
munity bank will provide us with
a greater capability to meet those
needs and better opportunities
for our officers and employees."
A. Douglas Gilbert, president
of Seacoast, stated, "We look for-
ward to combining the superior
talent and customer focus found
in both companies and are confi-
dent that we will build value for
all shareholders in the coming
years."
Big Lake has for many years
successfully executed a relation-
ship based business strategy
resulting in a solid deposit base
and overall funding costs well
below peers. At the end of Sep-
tember, the bank's deposit base
included 30 percent non-interest
bearing accounts and 90 percent
core deposit accounts.
The Merger Agreement pro-
vides that Big Lake's sharehold-
ers will receive a total 1,775,000
shares of Seacoast common
stock in the transaction for all
outstanding shares of Big Lake
stock. Based on today's closing
price for Seacoast shares, the
transaction has a value of
approximately $43 million. Sea-


coast expects that the transac-
tion, which is anticipated to close
in the second quarter of 2006,
will be accretive to earnings per
share in 2006 and for the foresee-
able future, without considering
revenue'or expense synergies.
Seacoast was advised by
Burke Capital Group L.L.C. and
Alston & Bird LLP: Big Lake was
advised by lovde Financial and
Smith McKinnon, P.A.
The proposed transaction is
subject to approval by Big Lake's
shareholders and applicable reg-
ulatory authorities. Seacoast will
file a registration statement
including a proxy
statement/prospectus and other
relevant documents concerning
the proposed transaction with
the SEC:
Big Lake's shareholders are
urged to read the registration
statement and the proxy state-
ment/prospectus regarding the
proposed transaction when it
becomes available and any other
relevant documents filed with
the SEC, as well as any amend-
ments or supplements to those
documents, because these will
contain important information.
You will be able to obtain a free
copy of the proxy
statement/prospectus, as well as
other filings containing informa-
tion about Seacoast and Big
Lake, at the SEC's Internet site
(http://www.sec.gov). You will.
also be able to obtain these doc-
uments, free of charge, at
www.seacoastbanking.net.
Seacoast and Big Lake, and
their respective directors and
executive officers, may be
deemed to be participants in the
solicitation of proxies from Big
Lake's shareholders in connec-
tion with the merger.:Informa-
tion about the directors and
executive officers of Seacoast


and their ownership of Seacoast
common stock is set forth in the
proxy statement dated April 11,
2005 for Seacoast's 2005 annual
meeting of shareholders, as filed
with the SEC on a Schedule 14A.
Additional information regarding
the interests of those participants
and other persons who may be
deemed participants in the trans-
action may be obtained by read-
ing the joint proxy
statement/prospectus regarding
the proposed transaction when it
becomes available. You may
obtain free copies of these docu-
ments as described in the pre-
ceding paragraph.


from FEMA, he or she should call
the FEMA Helpline at 800-621-
FEMA.
DeMello urged those receiv-
ing checks to deposit them in
their bank account as soon as
possible, large sums of cash
should not be carried and recipi-
ents should never deal with
strangers offering check-cashing
or deposit services. One of the
best ways to secure the grant
payment is to give the informa-
tion required to deposit the
money into your bank account
- an electronic funds transfer
- when you register.
"This financial assistance is
intended to ease the pain of seri-
ous disaster losses and it is to be
used for that purpose," said
Craig Fugate, state coordinating
officer of the Florida State Emer-
gency Respons.e Team.
Fugate urged applicants to
avoid the temptation to pay
household bills with the money
or make purchases unrelated to
needs created by the disaster. He
suggested they keep receipts of
their disaster spending and stay
in touch with FEMA if their situa-
tion changes.
The grants that FEMA pro-
vides disaster victims are legislat-
ed by Congress to cover certain
expenses to help eligible appli-
cants with specific needs caused
by the disaster. If an applicant
does not use the money for its
intended purpose as explained
by FEMA, he or she may not be


eligible for any additional help.
The "Help After a Disaster"
booklet is a handy reference
guide for disaster assistance. The
booklet explains how to use the
disaster grant, how to make an
appeal if denied assistance and
many more useful items to help
victims move through the recov-
ery process. To view a copy of
the booklet online, log on to
http://www fema.gov/about/pro
cess/ and open the "Applicant
Guide Help After a Disaster"
in the box labeled "Step 1".
The State Emergency
Response Team (SERT) is a col-
laboration of Florida's state
agencies led by the state coordi-
nating officer. SERT's mission is
to ensure that Florida is prepared
to respond to emergencies,
recover from them, and mitigate
their impacts. Visit www.flori-
dadisaster.org for the latest infor-
mation on the hurricane relief
efforts.
FEMA prepares the nation for
all hazards and manages federal
response and recovery efforts
following any national incident.
FEMA also initiates mitigation
activities, trains first responders,
works with state and local emer-
gency managers, and manages
the National Flood Insurance
Program and the U.S. Fire
Administration. FEMA became
part of the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security on March 1,
2003.

Hospital
Continued From Page 1
The inspections were origi-
nally expected to be completed
within two weeks after the storm
caused the -major water and
wind damages at HRMC, but
delays in state response caused
the hospital to lose valuable time
for offering inpatient health serv-
ices, according to Human
Resources Director Rodney Lar-
son.
"We started to get into nega-
tive numbers due to the suspen-
sion of inpatient services, but
now that we're back on track
and in full steam, hopefully we
can get back into a better state of
recovery," said Larson.
The state approval of inpa-
tient services on Friday will allow
the medical center to be fully
functional again.
According to Larson, the state
administered a great number of
reviews and inspections by
architects, health services pro-
fessionals, and damage recovery
experts during the suspension of

County Commissioner JanetTay-
lor arrived on the scene and
greeted Red Cross volunteers
and staff, who directed people
into the auditorium to set up a
new shelter.
Red Cross workers arrived
from locations all across the
United States. Many of these
workers had experienced the
devastation of the tsunami, Hur-
ricane Katrina, and the recent
earthquake in Pakistan. Some
workers were on their first
assignment, and others were
experienced. Some of the Red
Cross staff had lodging at nearby
motels, some traveled to and
from West Palm Beach, and oth-
ers slept on cots or on the floor in
the auditorium. Staff included
those working day shift and night
shift, including a staff of regis-
tered nurses from as far away as
Massachusetts and California.
The exterior of the John Boy
was used as a FEMA distribution
center, and water, ice, canned

the suspension of inpatient services, but now that
we're back on track and in full steam, hopefully
we can get back into a better state of recovery."

Human Resources Director


several weeks, were required to
be referred to other hospitals in
the region. Now that inspections
and reviews have finished, the
hospital can now focus on
addressing the minor structural
damages still in need'of repair.
"There are still some areas
that have been sealed offand are
awaiting repairs, mostly for
things such as water damaged
walls and ceilings that need to
be taken out and replaced, and
as soon as those areas are
repaired, we'll be able to use
those spaces again," said Lar-
son.
Many members of the hospi-
tal staff have been personally
affected by the storm, with
approximately 10 staff members
who have lost homes and are liv-
ing'with others. Those individu-
als are still able to come in to
work, said Larson.


food, and blue tarps were given
out for many days in a drive-
through process.
Donations poured into the
shelter, including clothing, dia-
pers, baby formula, water, etc.
Many local restaurants and
churches provided meals to the
shelter residents.
The population grew larger
each day as people were forced
to leave their homes, and several
times the shelter had to be
rearranged to accommodate the
people. Originally the stage area
was set up as a first-aid station.
Then tables were added for eat-
ing. Next, the first-aid station was
relocated to a hallway.
Some residents had to sleep
in the front lobby of the auditori-
um and eating tables were
moved outside. Portable show-
ers were provided just in time for
the children who returned to
school on Nov. 2.
Living conditions were cer-
tainly difficult for people who
were forced to live under a roof
with hundreds of other strangers,
with no privacy and little space.
The shelter was very quiet during
the daytime, when many chil-
dren were in school, many adults


The hospital may have to
seek ways to compensate for the
lost revenue due to the suspend-
ed inpatient and elective surgery
functions, all of which will be
addressed in the coming weeks.
Some sources of assistance
may possibly be available from a
mold abatement program, Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency assistance, and Small
Business Administration assis-
tance.
Though it is not clear whether
the hospital qualifies for those
programs, there may still be a
need for recovery within the
medical center, as is the case for
all Clewiston residents and busi-
nesses.
In the meantime, hospital
services are back on track, and
the continued milestones on the
road to recovery are beginning
to grow in number.


were out working, or trying to
make arrangements to get on
with their lives. But at night, chil-
dren and babies were crying,
bored teenagers roamed around,
and a security force was nearby
to prevent crime and violence.
Those sheltered were housed
at John Boy from the evening of
Oct. 24 to Nov. 18. The highest
number of evacuees peaked at
around 260 people, with well
over half of those being children.
FEMA officials'worked diligently
to process these homeless fami-
lies and get them into FEMA trail-
ers as soon as possible. By Nov.
18, the population of evacuees in
the shelter was down to 33 peo-
ple, who were moved to a new
shelter, the Harlem Gym, on 10th
Street.
By this time, many people had
found alternative living arrange-
ments, and a handful more
awaited FEMA's help. Many peo-
ple were unhappy about the
move, and voiced feelings of
being unsafe at the new location.
On Nov. 23, with approximately
22 people left without homes,
they were transferred to the Palm
Beach County Red Cross Shelter
at the fairgrounds.

Suicide
Continued From Page 1
The source also revealed that
the woman had been in Clewiston
to look for property with a potential
interest in buying real estate. But it
is now unclear as to her real inten-
tions and what she may have possi-
bly told friends and family. Nor is it
clear why Clewiston was chosen as
a place to end her life or if there
were mitigating circumstances
upon or after her arrival.
The Miami Dade Schools Police
did not have any comment on the
matter.
.No reports of a suicide letter or
any other correspondence were
left by the woman, according to
the source in Miami.

Blue Devils advance to state final by defeating Marauders


Devils are one
victory away from
a three-peat
By: Nina G. Wills
PAHOKEE The Pahokee
Blue Devils played their final
home game of the year at Lair
Field and had a mission to com-
plete: Beat Clearwater Central
Catholic to play for another Class
2B state title game. With the win
Friday night, they accomplished
that mission and are now one
step closer to their third consecu-
tive state title.
On the Marauders first play
from scrimmage, quarterback
Andrew Nowell hit wide reciever
Colin McCarthy on a crossing pat-
tern for a 65-yard touchdown
pass to give the Marauders a 7-0
advantage with only 11 seconds
taken off the game clock. It was a
play that stunned the Blue Devils
and quieted the crowd.
But the Blue Devils first offen-
sive series would answer the
Marauders quick score. On a
draw play, running back Ricky
Gary powered his way to a first
down. Robert "Rah Rah" Love
threw a strike to Blue Devil wide
out Martavious Odoms who zig-
zagged across the field and raced
77 yards for the first Blue Devil
touchdown. Kicker Jose
Rodriguez tied the game with his
point after attempt.
The Marauders second posses-

a return wave after defeating Clearwater Central Catholic to


advance to the state finals.
sion started at midfield. Their
drive was aided by an offside
penalty and a pass interference
call on the Devils defense, which
led to a successful field goal
attempt by Kicker Anthony Lean-
dri from 48 yards out. Only eight
minutes into the first quarter, the
Marauders led the Devils 10-7.
On Pahokee's second posses-
sion, the Devils called on their
running backs to establish the
ground game, Gary ran for nine
quick yards and Love connected


again with his favorite receiver
Odoms for a 17-yard gain. After
an official time out, Odoms was
wide open and caught a 47-yard
touchdown pass. The PAT was
not good. With six minutes to go,
Pahokee took its first lead of the
night 13-10.
The Devils defense forced a
Marauders punt, which Tamarcus
Porter capitalized on. Porter
picked up a bouncing ball at the
four-yaid line. Amazingly, he
evaded every Marauder tackler


and raced 96 yards for a third Blue
Devils touchdown. On a fake PAT,
Love rolled to his right and hit
Odoms for the two-point conver-
sion. In the waning minutes of the
first quarter, the Devils led 21-10.
The first quarter was an offensive
showdown for both teams.
Pahokee added a fourth touch-
down in the middle of the second
quarter. Love connected twice
with wide out Nikita White for a
gain of 20 yards. From the 11-yard
line, running back Janoris Jenkins
ran untouched into the end zone.
Clearwater Central Catholic
made a 39-yard field goal. With 90
seconds to go, Pahokee had
another touchdown thrown by
Love to Odoms that was called
back for offensive holding. The
Devils were also called for two un-
sportsmanlike penalties. Love
and Odoms were extremely upset
about the call, and the coaches
sat both players out for the rest of
the half to calm .down. The
Marauders scored another field
goal before halftime, but the Blue
Devils took a 28-16 lead into the
break.
To start the third quarter, the
Blue Devils methodically moved
down the field by Ricky Gary's
powerhouse runs. Gary gained 34
yards on four runs. The.Blue Dev-
ils had a first and goal from inside
the five-yard line, but were unable
to score on the drive. Pahokee
was forced to turn the ball over to
the Marauders on downs with five
minutes to go in the third quarter.
The Marauders were stuffed by


the Devils defense. Cornerback
Nikita White intercepted the
Marauders quarterback, Andrew
Nowell. The pass was tipped by a
Marauder receiver. White stuck
with the play and grabbed the ball
at midfield.
The Devils offense headed
back onto the field looking to
score. Love had a 27-yard run. A
late hit penalty called on the
Marauders gave Pahokee perfect
scoring position inside the 10-
yard line. Jenkins ran the ball
down to the two-yard line. Love
scored the fifth Blue Devils touch-
down on a quarterback keeper
and Pahokee increased its lead
35-16 to end the third quarter.
The Devils defense held the
Marauders quite effectively during
the second half. The Marauders
went for a fourth-and-five at their
own 33-yard line. The Devils
defense stopped the Marauders.
Love connected with wide out
Tanoris Jones for a 16-yard pick-
up. On a play-action pass play,
Love stepped up into the pocket
and found his tight end, Un'Tavi-
ous Scott for the sixth and final
Blue Devils touchdown. Pahokee
led the Marauders 43-16 with
eight minutes to go in the final
quarter of play. The Marauders
did get a touchdown in the final
minutes of the game. The two-
point conversion failed. The Dev-
ils defeated the Marauders 43-22.
The Blue Devils celebrated
their victory. Lair Field turned into
an acrobatic ring as the Devil play-
ers showed even more of their


athletic ability by performing cart-
wheels and back flips. Their
excitement was just too much to
contain. Coach Foster and the
assistant coaches showed their
enthusiasm by proclaiming their
anticipation to head to Miami to
play in the state final game.
.The Devils have faced many
distractions and pressures
throughout the season. With their
loss to Kings Academy, some
doubted whether or not the Devils
had lost their dominance this sea-
son. The Devils have continued to
rely on each other and have
grown as a team. An appearance
in their third consecutive state title
game is remarkable. The Devils
"will play undefeated Trinity
Catholic at 1 p.m., Dec. 3 at FIU
Stadium in Miami for the Class 2B
state title and hope to bring home
another state title.
Robert Love was 10-of-15 for
232 yards, 3 passing TDs, 1 rush-
ing TD, and threw one pick.
Martavious Odoms had 3
receptions for 138 yards and 2
TDs.
Tanoris Jones had 3 receptions
for 46 yards,
Nikita White had 2 receptions
for 21 yards and 1 interception.
Un'Tavious Scott had 1 recep-
tion for 20 yards and 1 TD.
Janoris Jenkins rushed seven
times for 67 yards and 1 TD.
.Ricky Gary rushed five times
for 63 yards.
Vincent Smith rushed two
times for 25 yards.

Raiders topple Indians to

advance to state semifinals


By Mark Young

BELLE GLADE The Glades
Central Raiders continue their bid
to reestablish themselves as a high
school football' powerhouse and
took another step after knocking
off the Immokalee Indians Nov. 25
on the Raiders' home field.
Thousands of fans packed into
the stadium to watch their
beloved Raiders regain their status
as one of the best high school
football teams in the state of Flori-
da and that reputation is more
than warranted with the Raiders
sending more players to the NFL
than any other school in the state.
But Immokalee has had its fair
share of stars as well and fielded
an exceptional ball club once
again, but couldn't muster the
playoff victory against, the fleet-
footed Raiders who posted a 44-
33 victory to launch themselves
into the Class 2B state champi-
onship semifinals.
Deondre Holley opened up the'
Raider scoring after hauling in a
25-yard touchdown strike from
Raider quarterback Bryan Mann.
The point after attempt failed, but
the Raiders drew first blood with a
6-0 lead early in the first quarter.
The Indians countered the
Raider touchdown with a 69-
yard touchdown pass, but the
Raiders weren't done with their
first quarter scoring as Mann hit
Curtis Brown from 26 yards out
to reclaim the. lead after the
score was deadlocked at 6-6
when Immokalee also failed on
their PAT.
Holley delivered on the Raider
PAT. and Glades Central took a 13-
7 lead after one quarter of play.
Mann continued his red hot air
attack as the second quarter
began, throwing two more
touchdown passes before the
break. Mann hit Denote Thomp-
son from 43 yards out and con-
nected with Tarus McKinley from
36 yards out. Holley was one-of-
two on the PATs and the Raiders
were up 26-7 before Immokalee
ended the first half scoring with a
20-yard touchdown run to tighten
the gap to a 26-14 Raider advan-


tage at the break.
The Indians pulled within five
points of the Raiders when the
Glades Central defense gave up a
21-yard touchdown scamper and
suddenly to leave the score stand-
ing at 26-21, but the glimmer of
hope would fade quickly when
Thompson took the ensuing kick.
off 93 yards for the Raider score.
Glades Central opted for a two-
point try but the pass attempt
failed to leave the score standing
at 32-21 in favor of the Raiders
after three quarters of play.
Both squads would score twice
in the fourth quarter with
Immokalee striking first on a four-
yard scoring run to pull the Indi-
ans ,within four points of the
Raiders. But Glades Central
responded to the challenge with
Mann throwing his fifth touch-
down of the night, this one to Hol-
ley from 12 yards out. The two-
point attempt failed again, but the
Raiders held onto a 38-28 advan-
tage and extended that lead when
Holley ran into the end zone from
10 yards out. After another failed
two-point attempt, the Raiders
opened up a 44-28 -lead.
Immokalee would be the last to
score to close out the Raider victo-
ry at 44-33.`
The Raiders will face Booker in
the state semifinals after Booker
defeated Kathleen 37-10.
The Raiders will need to get
past Booker to face the winner of
the St. Augustine and North Mari-
on game as the other two sur-
vivors in the hunt for the state
championship.
Mann threw for five touch-
downs in going 12-of-19 for 253
yards in a stellar performance for
the Raiders.
Holley and Aston Samuels
each rushed for 73 yards. Brown
had five receptions for 89 yards
and a touchdown, Holley had
three catches for 44 yards and had
a pair of touchdown receptions
and ran in for another one, McKin-
ley had a pair of catches for 45
yards and Thompson had two
receptions for 75 yards and a
touchdown catch, plus a 93-yard
kick off return for a TD.

Tigers fall to Lions in state semifinals

SBy Bill Fabian
MIAMI The Clewiston Tigers
Splayed under the lights of a profes-
Ssional football stadium against the
Chaminade-Madonna Lions in the
Class 2A state semifinal game on
Friday, Nov. 25. The game was
played at Pro Player Stadium, the
home of the Miami Dolphins and
SFlorida Marlins, in Miami in order to
accommodate a large crowd and
provide a nighttime venue in place
of the Chaminade field, which was
Damaged by Hurricane Wilma.
Many fans made the short drive
south to Miami to watch the Tigers,
.who played against a highly skilled,
S powerful Chaminade team that
dominated the Tigers defensively,
Sand scored quickly enough to put
the game mostly out of reach for
the Tigers, snapping a seven-game
* winning streak that included a for-
Sfeit from St. Andrews.
Potential scoring drives failed
throughout the game for the Tigers
Sdue to crucial penalties, fumbled
carries and heartbreaking intercep-
tions given up by the Tiger offense.
On the defensive side, penalties
were also a big part of the story,
especially a very untimely off-sides
penalty by the Tigers on a field goal
attempt by the Lions on fourth and
long, setting up a Chaminade
touchdown.
The game began with an early
score by Chaminade-Madonna's
Willie Floyd on a 30-yard touch-
down run, which put the Lions up
by seven after the successful PAT
kick.
S The Tigers answered quickly
with a huge gain by tailback Jamal
SHubert, who ran 47 yards to set the
STigers up within the 25-yard line in
Sthe first quarter. Quarterback Jared
Combass. then handed off to
Hubert, who leapt past the surging

Submitted to INI/Chops Hancock
Clewiston's William Bigahm lays the big hit on Lion running back Xavier Stinson who despite
this early punishment, gave the Tigers trouble throughout the game.


Lions defensive attack to scamper
for a 21-yard score. The point-after
attempt was missed, however, and
the Tigers never scored again.
Despite the early strong running
by Hubert, the junior tailback was
unable to continue his streak of
games with rushing performances
of more than 100 yards. Because of
an ankle injury that popped up in
last week's game against St. Peters-
burg Catholic, Hubert only had four
carries after his touchdown run Fri-
day. His streak ended at six, as he
finished with seven carries for 78
yards.
Huber ended the season with
160 carries for 1,028 yards and nine
touchdowns. He averaged 102.8
yards per game.
Senior running back Richard
Pope and junior running back
David Pope also had strong rushing
efforts against Chaminade. Richard
Pope ran for 37 yards on nine car-
ries, and David Pope ran for 25 on
six carries.


Tiger defensive lineman Eric Mergott was distraught after the
Tigers ended their state playoff run against the Chaminade-
Madonna Lions at Pro Player Stadium.


The Chaminade performance
on both offensive and defensive
sides of the ball was too much for
the Tigers to handle. The Lions' tail-


back Floyd ran for 153 yards and
scored two touchdowns, and
Xazier Stinson also scored twice for
the Lions.

STATESBORO, Ga. Former
Belle Glade resident Carl Cone is a
1971 graduate of Glades Central
High School and the Cone family
has had a presence in Belle Glade
for several decades with the family
business being Cone's Paint Store.
The Cones moved to Georgia
some 15 years ago, but left plenty
of family and friends in Belle Glade.
Carl's son David is currently playing
for the undefeated Blue Devils of
Statesboro High School and will be
inking a scholarship deal for the
Wolverines of Michigan University
in February.
David is a three-year starter for
the Blue Devils and in the course of
putting together a 13-0 season thus
far, with two more games left until
possibly claiming the state champi-
onship, David has throw for close
to 1,400 yards while maintaining a
65-percent completion ratio. David
has thrown the 205 times this year


and has completed 128 passes, to
include nine touchdown strikes for
theyear.
David is a 6' 5" senior quarter-
back and attended Wolverine Head
Coach Lloyd Carr's annual football
camp. Coach Carr apparently liked
what he saw and offered David a
scholarship on the spot, Which
David obviously accepted.
With the likes of Tom Brady and
several other quality professional
football players coming out of the
Wolverine pack, David is excited at
the opportunity to lead the Wolver-
ines to victory in the coming years,
as well as grasping a viable oppor-
tunity to one hit the professional
gridiron.
Carl is currently a law professor
at South University in Savannah,
while David's mother is a professor
at Georgia Southern. The Florida-
born David, as well as his parents,
will have no problems shaking off
Florida and Georgia loyalty in the
fall of 2006, as David vies for his
chance at Wolverine history.

Elks state soccer


shoot winners


CLEWISTON Six Clewiston
residents and their families made
the long trip to Umatilla for the Elks
State Soccer Shoot Championships
held Nov. 19 at the Elks Youth
Camp.
All of the kickers returned with
trophies for their efforts.
Issabella Alien placed first in the
girls Under-8 division. She is a stu-
dent at Westside Elementary
School. Her sister, Melanie Allen,
placed third in the Under-10 girls
division. Another Westside student,
Casey Crawford, won the second
place trophy in the boys Under-12
division. His division had represen-
tatives from all four regions.
Daniel Jansen, who attends


Glades Day School, placed second
in the boys Under-8 division.
Brittany Bacallao, a seventh
grader at Clewiston Middle school,
was the under-14 girls champion.
She kicked seven, three-point goals
as part of her total. Martin Craw-
ford placed second in the boys
Under-14 division. His last two
kicks each scored five points, the
top area on the goal.
Clewiston had more represen-
tatives at the event than any other
lodge in Florida. Special thanks go
to the parents for their time and
effort and to the local AYSO pro-
gram for giving the children a
chance to excel in soccer.

UN calls for closures


to protect sea turtles


FOREST KNOLLS, CA The
United Nations General Assembly
will vote on a resolution that calls
for closures of fishing in areas
where large numbers of critically
endangered sea turtles are caught
or killed. The critically endan-
gered Pacific leatherback sea tur-
tle is on the verge of extinction
and is expected by scientists to go
extinct in the next 5-30 years
unless immediate measures to
eliminate threats posed by indus-
trial long line fishing are taken.
Environmentalists are pleased at
this first step but warn that a
moratorium on destructive long
line fishing is needed in the Pacif-
ic if the leatherback is to survive.
"We are pleased that the UN
finally moving closer to the
worldwide consensus that some-
thing urgently needs to be done
to prevent the extinction of the
leatherback and loggerhead sea
turtles in the Pacific," said Robert
Ovetz.
Save the Leatherback Cam-
paign Coordinator of the US based
Sea Turtle Restoration Project,
which is leading the advocacy
effort by a coalition of internation-
al environmental organizations.
Last June a parade of school-
children dressed in sea turtle cos-
tumes delivered a petition to the
UN signed by thousands of citi-
zens, 1,007 scientists from 97
countries and 281 non-govern-
mental organizations from 64
countries urging it to implement
a moratorium on high seas indus-
trial long line fishing in the Pacif-
ic. The list of signers includes
famed primatologist Dr. Jane
Goodall, Harvard biologist E.O.
Wilson, oceanographer Dr. Sylvia
Earle, a National. Geographic
Explorer-in-Residence, and for-
mer U.S. astronaut Bernard Har-
ris, Jr. M.D.
According the recent reports


I


in the scientific journal Nature,
the 100 million year old
leatherback sea turtle is on the
brink of extinction. The popula-
tion -of female nesting
leatherbacks has declined by
about 95% since 1980.,
Dr. James Spotila, a co-author
of one of the reports, signed the
petition to the UN and testified
before the UN this past June.
"The descent of the leatherback
toward extinction is a global
ecological tragedy that affects us
all. As goes the leatherback, so
goes the ocean," warned Dr.
Spotila. Dr. Spotila is the Presi-
dent of the International Sea Tur-
tle Society, President of The
Leatherback Trust, and Betz
Chair of Environmental Science
at Drexel University.
The language endorsing a set
of guidelines recently drafted by
the UN Food and Agriculture
Organization originated at the
June meeting of the UN Open-
ended Informal Consultative
Process on Oceans and the Law
of the Sea.
On the first day of the meeting,
the meeting directed all nations
that have signed the convention
and regional fisheries manage-
ment organizations to urgently
implement the closures and
other measures outlined in recent
UN FAO guidelines for reducing
interactions with sea turtles. Simi-
lar language calling for time and
area closures to reduce the by
catch (the unwanted capture and
killing of ocean wildlife) of indus-
trial fishing also appears in the
same section of the resolution.
These two recommendations are
included in the resolution that
will be voted on by'the UN Gener-
al Assembly today.

The bridge over the Caloosahatchee River, in LaBelle, in the early days until the arched
bridge was built, was a turn bridge that required the operator to turn a crank to turn the
bridge'to let the boats through.


Growing up big in LaBelle


As told to MaryAnn Morris.
"People only did washing
once a week. It was a lot of work
to get out the big wash boiler pot,
fill it with water, and heat it up
over the fire or on the stove! But
then, people didn't have so many
clothes. Houses didn't even have
closets. Just hooks or nails in the
walls. There were sometimes
hooks in the head of the beds to
hang clothes at night. I had one of
those beds at one time. It's now in
the museum here in town.
"We had a city jail at one time,
located in Goodno Park that was
all made out of corrugated tin.
The concrete foundation is still
visible. That's what they used until
the courthouse was built. When it
wasn't in use any more, my dad
bought it, moved it and fixed it up
and we lived there until they got a
house from the Sears Mill. Mom
lived in that house from 1936 until
1993. It's still there at the corner of
Fort Thompson Avenue and
Riverview Street South.
"Some things here go way
back. Devil,s Garden Road it's
now renamed Cowboy Way -
was an old Indian trail that came
through and went down toward.
the reservation to a small com-
munity called Devil's Garden. My
granddad was a real loner. He
lived down there several years
and when he needed things, he
would come into town in his
Model A. Another funny name is
"Monkey Town," the preferred
story on that name is that there


CLEWISTON In honor of
National Diabetes Month in
November, Hampton Chrysler
DodgeJeep will contribute $1 for
every Chrysler, Jeep(r) and
Dodge vehicle sold to the Iacocca
Foundation's JoinLeeNow
(www.JoinLeeNow.org)
fundraising campaign to raise
money for diabetes research. This
partnership will run through the
end of 2006.
"Diabetes strikes all demo-
graphics, from those living in
Clewiston, nationally and around
the world," said Dennis Hampton
of Hampton Chrysler Dodge Jeep.
"We are proud to donate $1 for
every Chrysler, Jeep and Dodge
vehicle sold, to do our part to help
this great cause and find a cure for
those suffering from this devastat-
ing disease."
Hampton Chrysler DodgeJeep
will help the Iacocca Foundation
achieve its goal of finding a cure
for diabetes, a disease that kills
more than 200,000 people in the
United States annually and causes
health complications including


blindness, amputations, heart dis-
ease, nerve damage and kidney
failure. The Iacocca Foundation's
JoinLeeNow initiative is half way
to reaching its goal of funding a
clinical trial for a potential cure for
type 1 diabetes, a treatment that
has been found to successfully
cure diabetes in mice.
"I promised my late wife that I
would help to find a cure for type
I diabetes in my lifetime. I feel like
we are finally close. I'm very
grateful for everything Hampton
Chrysler DodgeJeep is doing to
help us reach our goal," said Lee
Iacocca, Chairman of the Iacocca
Foundation.
Launched in August of 2004,
JoinLeeNow has raised six of the
11 million dollars it needs to fund
a clinical trial at Massachusetts
General Hospital that will be con-
ducted by Dr. David Nathan and
Dr. Denise Faustman. The first
phase of the clinical trial program
will test a potential cure for type 1
diabetes.
In type 1 diabetes, the immune
system attacks the islet cells of the

Creating a Florida frik

"After the Sears Mill closed, my dad bought this house and
moved it up to LaBelle. We added a front and back porch
and it's still here, at the corner of Riverside Street South


and Fort Thompson Avenue." Lynda Rider.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history

was a juke joint there where the
cowboys would go and get all
drunk on the weekends and be
staggering around. People said
they acted like a bunch of mon-


keys and so, they called it Monkey
Town. (Credit for this version is
given to Gran'ma Forrey.)
"Before they built the arched
bridge, there was an old crank
bridge across the river. Boats
would have to blow their horns
three times for the bridge tender
to open the bridge. When the
horns would blow, every kid in
earshot would run for the
bridge to ride around on the
end of the bridge and wave at
all the people on the boats. We
thought we were so big on that
bridge, seeing how the people
on the boats lived. But that was
a long time ago.


By Ed Ayen, Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods
What is a "Florida Friendly
Yard"? A Florida Friendly Yard is
an approach that recognizes the
home landscape as part of a
larger natural system. This does
not necessarily mean creating a
"wild-looking" yard, but it does
mean creating a landscape that
is more of an environmental
asset than a liability. If designed,
installed and maintained proper-
ly, it will be attractive, environ-
mentally sustainable and protect
natural resources.
Plan first, plant last. In a Flori-
da Friendly Yard, appropriate
landscaping protects the envi-
ronment by stabilizing the soil,
preventing erosion, filtering pol-
lutants and reducing harmful
runoff. Other considerations
include aesthetics, improving
the resale value of a home, noise
reduction, climate control and
wildlife habitat.
Determine how you will use
your property. Do you need a
play area for children or a party
area? How about a vegetable


garden? Maybe you just want to
enjoy looking at a pleasing yard
without time consuming or cost-
ly maintenance.
Analyze your existing yard
and note any special conditions.
Take into account sunny and
shady areas areas that flood
or are extremely dry. Take a soil
sample to the local extension
office to check pH. Do you have
trees or shrubs that are problem-
atic? They may .need to be
removed.
Prepare a plan for your Flori-
da Friendly Yard. Take into
account things such as septic
tank, underground utilities or
overhead power lines and exist-
ing sprinkler system. Sketch in
the activity areas and specific
areas for birds and butterflies. If
you live on the water consider
putting in a buffer zone of 10 to
25 feet for pollution control.
Next, add to your sketch
where you want trees, shrubs,
groundcovers and flowering
plants. Remember to keep plants
away from buildings to allow for
growth and ease of building
maintenance. Group plants for
more efficient irrigation.

aphids. They are much larger and
brown to black and have been mis-
taken for ticks. However, ticks have
never been found on Christmas
trees at any time of year.
The spruce spider mite is a com-
mon pest of Fraser fir. Spider mites
are very small, and appear as dark-
red dots when shaken out of the
tree. With a magnifying lens you
can see the eight legs characteristic
of mites. Spider mites can't live in
your. house. Once the tree is
removed, they will die out. While
spider mites could cause small red
stains on carpets, ornaments, or
furnishings, they do not bite, nor do
they cause any diseases.
Praying mantids are a well-
known insect predator. Their egg
cases are frequently found in
Christmas trees. In the fall;female
mantids lay eggs in a frothy liquid
which hardens into an egg case
that sticks to the branch. Once
warmed inside the home, the eggs
may hatch and tiny mantids can
invade your home. Again, these
insects do not bite or carry disease.
If the egg case can be located,
remove it from the tree and put it
outside. Small mantids that have
escaped can be vacuumed up or
caught and released outside.
