AC S Relay for Life kick-off


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON Health care
professionals have learned long
ago that cancer is arguably the
most wide reaching and life
changing of diseases. Further-
more, it has become quite appar-
ent that nearly every single
human being in the U.S. will be
affected by cancer at least once
in their lifetime, either by suffer-
ing an affliction or by knowing a
friend or family member who
will.
In the fight to reduce cancer


cases and search for a cure for
any of the numerous forms, the
American Cancer Society dedi-
cates millions annually in funds
to sponsor cancer research and
assistance for cancer patients.
The reputable organization
tirelessly works towards the con-
tinued fundraising for these caus-
es, which have seen some meas-
ures of success in breast cancer
and prostate cancer research.
Millions have participated in can-
cer research fundraisers, and few
have given up hope for a cure to
the deadly disease.


The American Cancer Society
and the Clewiston Inn have
extended an invitation for all'to
attend the Clewiston Relay for
Life Kick-off, which will be held
at the Clewiston Inn's Sugar and
Spice Room at 6 p.m. on Dec. 15.
The open event will provide
an opportunity for individuals
wishing to register to participate
in the 2005-2006 Relay for Life,
which will be held Feb. 17 at the
Hendry County Fairgrounds. Par-
ticipants are required to register
as a member of a team, which
will take part in the relay as a


group of 10 to 15 members.
Each team member will be
responsible for raising a mini-
mum of $100. The Clewiston
Relay for Life has set a goal to
raise at least $45,000. Team
fundraising is estimated to
account for at least $12,000 with
12 teams having registered so far.
The Relay goal is to have at
least 20 teams participate, so
organizers are asking for more
volunteers to participate in the
annual event.
"We like to maintain a trend
of raising more money each year


than the year before, and so we
set these goals for this year,
which we are very hopeful and
pretty confident that we can
achieve," said Sandi Rodriguez,
who is the chairperson of the
Clewiston Relay for Life. "We
have a few teams already signed
up to walk, and we also have
some corporate sponsorships
also committed to the event,"
she said.

poration has committed the

CSI: Locally




C.PD. techs


By Bill Fabian
CLEWISTON With.the
enormous and fast-growing
array of crime-solving tech-
niques used by today's law
enforcement agencies, it is a
wonder that some people
would even consider commit-
ting a crime.
It is no secret that amazing
advances have been made in
law enforcement, made
famous by a dazzling number
of television shows such as
CSI: Crime Scene Investiga-
tion, Law and Order; and Cold
Case, just to name a few.
..These sho%%s spotlight mod-.
ern techniques in forensic sci-
ence, DNA research, and cre-
ative investigative methods,
which have boosted the suc-
cess rate of crime scene inves-
tigations.


The savvy crime-solving
techniques and inventions fea-
tured on TV are very close to
reality, according to the
Clewiston Police Department's
crime scene tech, Kelly Taylor.
Many of the details in the pop-
ular television shows can be
found in real life, such as with-
in the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment's.Crime Scene Investiga-
tions unit.
"The majority of things you
see on TV are very close to
what we do in real life. There
are so many shows based as
crime-solving dramas that it
has made crime scene investi-
gations a very popular and
widely ds.' iusS- s subject," said
Taylor, who spoke at a meeting
of the Clewiston Lions Club on
Thursday, Dec. 8.

Pet Corner


Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My fiance
gave me a few hints for what she
may like to have for Christmas. I'm
torn between either the English
Bulldog puppy or a Channel hand-
bag. Doc, how do you know when
getting someone a puppy is the
right gift to give? Dennis, in Welling-
ton.
A: Oh Dennis, I am so glad you
asked me about giving pets for
gifts! This is a very serious commit-
ment of a gift. Okay, here are some
things to consider: Is your honey
ready to take on some serious
responsibility? And since the two of
you are talking marriage, this ques-
tion is directed towards you too.
First lets look at the cost. You may
get away cheaper with a Channel
handbag! I think you can get buy
with the handbag for way under
$1000, but not likely on the bull-
dog!
Are you ready for housebreak-
ing, vet visits, pet supplies, and a lot
of reading up on a breed with tons
of conditions. English Bulldogs are
notorious for respiratory, skin and
reproductive problems. Ask some
of my favorite bulldog patients -
Stella, Mama, Dixie, Princess, and
Brewski. The English Bulldog has
recently taken on a revival in popu-
larity Dennis, even South Florida
sensation Gloria Estefan has one!
(Her dog is named Noelle, after me
of course- NOT!)
Dennis, will you consider this?
How about getting your gal the
Channel purse and adopting a dog


Doc Savvy


or cat from Animal Care and Con-
trol. Your adopted pet will come
fully vaccinated, spayed or
neutered. You will also feel very
proud that you are rescuing a
homeless pet for the holidays.
There is nothing that says Christ-
mas more than that Dennis, and
you'll save plenty of money too.
Maybe you can even buy a Channel
handbag for your favorite veterinar-
ian? Merry Christmas, Doc Savvy.
P.S. If anyone out there is
looking for dogs, and cats to adopt,
please let me know. I know of so
many wonderful healthy pets who
need homes. Folks, please spay
and neuter your pets to help reduce
the homeless animal population
out there! Thanks, Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com and check out
your answers weekly in The Pet
Corner. Be sure to tune into The
Savvy Vet Show Thursdays at 10:30
a.m. on 93.5 FM's The Big Dawg!

Taking the Christmas I.Q. test


By Pastor John Hicks
First United .Methodist Church
When the Clewiston Library
invited me to display some of my
nativity sets this year, I knew that
one of the sets I
wanted to put.
on display was
one made for
me out of
FIMO clay. It is
a work of art,
and I love the
expression on
Joseph's face
- a true proud John
poppa! Hicks
But what I
love more than the masterful cre-
aticn of the nativity set is the mas-
terful story behind the creation. I
came across the artist and her
work at a craft show, and asked
her if she might make a nativity
set for me. She was willing, but
had very little knowledge of the
characters of the nativity.
I shared-with her the Christmas
story and we conversed many
times about the story and the tra-
ditional and historical figures who


might have been present at the
birth. An amazing thing hap-
pened. As she started making my
nativity set she started living the
story with the figures she made.
By the time she had finished my
nativity, she had embraced the
Christmas story fully, as well as
Christ as her lord. Angels and
nativity sets became her passion,
and her creations became a
means of testimony for her.
How is your knowledge of the
Christmas story? How fully have
you embraced it? How is your
Christmas testimony?
While a campus minister at
Stetson University, I came up with
a Christmas I.Q. challenge. If any-
one could answer all of the ques-
tions correctly, I would treat them
to dinner and all of the ice cream
they could eat. I extend the chal-
lenge to you! Answer all of the
questions completely and I will
treat you to dinner and ice cream
at any of our Wednesday Night
Fellowship Dinners. Just come
and claim your prize!
We have our nativity sets, our
Christmas cards, and our Christ-
mas carols, which is great. The


problem is that legend has been
busy with them over the years.
This I.Q. test helps bring some of
these legends to light. Test your
knowledge!
1. As long as Christmas has
been celebrated, it has been on
Dec. 25. (TorF).
2. Joseph was from: (A). Beth-
lehem, (B). Jerusalem, (C).
Nazareth, (D). Egypt, (E). Chica-
go, (F). None of the above.
3. How did Joseph and Mary
travel to Bethlehem? (A). Joseph
walked, Mary rode a donkey. (B).
Mary walked, Joseph rode a don-
key. (C). They both walked. (D).
They both rode. (E). By boat. (F).
By chariot. (G). Who Knows?
4. What did the innkeeper tell
Mary and Joseph? (A). "Come
back after the Christmas rush and
I should have some vacancies."
(B). "I have a stable you can use."
(C). "There is no room at the inn."
(D). Both B and C. (E). None of
the above.
5. Jesus was delivered in a:
(A). Stable. (B). Manger. (C).
Cave. (D). Barn. (E). Unknown
6. A Manger is a: (A). Stable for
domestic animals. (B). Wooden


hay storage bin. (C). Feeding
Trough. (D). Barn
S7. Which animals does the
Bible say were present at Jesus'
birth? (A). Cows, sheep, goats.
(B). Cows, donkeys, sheep. (C).
Lowing cattle. (D). Misc. barnyard
animals. (E). Lions, tigers, and
bears. (F). None of the above.
8. Where do we find the Christ-
mas story in order to check on all
of these ridiculous questions? (A).
Matthew. (B). Mark. (C). Luke. (D).
John. (E). All of the above. (F). A
and B. (G). A and C. (H). A, B, and
C. (I). Genesis. (J). The 4 Gospels.
(K). The Epistles. (L). Television.
ANSWERS: (1). False. Not until
the fourth century did it settle on
the 25th. (2). A. See Luke 2:3,4.
(3). G. The Bible doesn't say. (4).
E. No word about the innkeeper.
See Luke 2:7. (5). E. No word
about it. See Luke 2:7 (He was
placed in a manger.) (6). C. (7). F.
The Bible doesn't specify. (8). G.
Mark begins with John the Bap-
tist; John with "the Word".
Share the story. Share the love.
Share the Savior!


S-Letters to the Editor
'"^ ^B


Dear editor:
As the New Year quickly
approaches and I reflect on 2005,
I feel honored to serve and repre-
sent the state of Florida in the U.S.
Senate, particularly as we grapple
with the big issues that are facing
the nation today.
The war in Iraq, oil-drilling in
the eastern Gulf of Mexico, FEMA,
Hurricane Wilma, Supreme Court
nominations and even corruption
within our own government are
just a few of the year's headlines
in our state and across the coun-
try.
In Congress this year, I've had
to fight many powerful interests,
our seniors, to protect the privacy
of everyday citizens from hackers
and identity thieves, and to ensure


that our children and grandchil-
dren receive a good education
and a good-paying job.
As the Congress finishes up
before the holidays, I am remind-
ed of all the victories we have
achieved for Florida this year. This
fall, with the help of a bipartisan
group of Florida's Congress mem-
bers, I successfully blocked a pro-
vision that would have subjected
Florida to oil-drilling 25 miles off
the coast. My legislation to
increase military survivor benefits
will now help improve the lives of
55,000 widows, widowers, and
orphans. I made sure that a new
Florida program designed to elec-
tronically track sex-offenders after
they leave jail received $2 million
in federal funds. And Florida con-
servation projects received $140


million at my request.
I'm already looking towards
the coming year with optimism.
In November, the Senate came
remarkably close to passing my
legislation to give seniors more
time to enroll in the new prescrip-
tion drug program, and I feel con-
fident that we will successfully
pass this provision in the New
Year.
In addition, I'll continue to
demand full accountability from
FEMA and will fight to increase
NOAA funding to better prepare
Florida for future hurricane sea-
sons. And I'll do everything within
my capacity to make sure oil
drilling stays away from Florida's
coasts permanently.
I'm committed to addressing
the everyday concerns and prob-


lems of my constituents in 2006,
and although we face many chal-
lenges, I remain optimistic for the
future of our great state of Florida
and our country.
Bill Nelson
Florida's senior U.S. senator

Dear editor:
We wish to take this opportu-
nity to thank the owners and
managers of Tropical Mobile
Home Village for their work fol-
lowing Hurricane Wilma.
Kudos to Morris and Betty
Ridgdill, Joe and Sassy Whitehead
and their employees for the help
in restoring the park. Their kind-
ness and many efforts are appre-
ciated.
Jim and Bonnie Laird

Coping with emotional losses after Wilma


ORLANDO Many Florida res-
idents have experienced devasta-
tion and major personal losses due
to Hurricane Wilma. Mental health
experts know that while physical
damage may.be. immediately visi-
ble following a hurricane, stress
and emotional problems from los-
ing a job, a home, belongings or
loved ones can linger and appear
weeks or months after a traumatic
event.
Many people affected by Wilma
may feel overwhelmed as they
struggle to navigate the very sys-
tem that's being established to pro-
vide support and assistance. And
stress levels may also rise as the
holidays approach.
While physical property and
possessions are initial concerns
that consume the time and energy
of disaster victims, emotional reac-
tions to disasters and catastrophic
events are often pushed aside or
ignored. Thus, officials from the
Department of Homeland Securi-
ty's Federal Emergency Manage-
ment Agency (FEMA) and Florida's
State Emergency Response Team
(SERT) are urging Wilma-affected
Hurricane residents to tend to their
emotional needs, as well.
One fundamental resource for
coping with the emotional effects
of Wilma's aftermath is Project
HOPE. Funded by a FEMA grant,
which is administered through
Florida's Department of Children
and Families, Project HOPE is offer-
ing counseling and mental-health
referrals to Floridians affected by
the devastation brought by Hurri-
cane Wilma.
If you've been affected by Hurri-
cane Wilma, the following infor-
mation is worth keeping in mind:
It is very common for people to
experience a wide range of emo-
tional reactions to a disaster or cat-
astrophic event such as a hurri-
cane. These reactions are
experienced in thoughts, feelings
and actions, and are often very
upsetting to you and those around
you. However, it is extremely


important to remember that they
are normal reactions to an abnor-
mal event. You have been through
an exceptionally stressful situation
and these emotional reactions may
continuee for many months follow-
ing the hurricane.
Whatchanges might I expect?
Your behaviors
Problems getting to sleep or
staying asleep.
Isolating yourself or with-

Community Events


Post hurricane help
First United Methodist Church
of Clewiston is coordinating several
work teams coming into Clewiston
to help with debris removal, chain-
saw work, placing roof tarps, or
general labor needs as a result of
Hurricane Wilma. If you have a
non-financial need, which we
might help with, please call 983-
5269. Because of volume and safe-
ty concerns, we may not be able to
address all requests, but we will
meet as many as possible. Priority
will be given to the elderly or inca-
pacitated.

Workforce Innovation
Due to Hurricane Wilma, the
Workforce Innovation agency has


been forced to relocate. They are
currently in operation and are
located at 215 San Frisco Street.
Representatives from Children and
Family will also be present.

Kids are for the birds
The Big "O" Birding Festival
Committee is planning something
new this year, a "Kids are for the
Birds" activity day in Tom Perry
Memorial Park in Moore Haven.
Build birdhouses, learn about Flori-
da's 15 species of bats, what flow-
ers you should plant to attract
native birds and butterflies, and
more. Volunteers are needed to
supervise activities and vendors are
welcome. For more information
call (863) 946-0300 or e-mail

low the experience of a disaster.
Generally, within a short time there
is the reality of financial setbacks
and the loss of property and per-
sonal possessions. The endless
adjustments that you and, your
family must make may put addi-
tional stress on your relationships
and daily living. You may also grow
physically and mentally weary
from the enormous task of clean-
ing up and rebuilding. All of these
factors may strain your ability to
move forward.
In the aftermath of a disaster or
catastrophic event, it is important
to remember that it will take time
to heal and recover from the emo-
tional effects of the disaster. How-
ever, with the passing of time, your
efforts to cope will begin to reduce
the intensity and duration of these
emotional reactions and behav-
iors.
What are some ways for my
family and I to cope?
For yourself
Talk to others about how you
are feeling. It is important to talk
about your experiences; you need
to express sadness, grief, anger and
fears over what has happened and
what you face.
Don't overwork yourself.
Take time off from repairs and be
with your family. Take time for
recreation, relaxation or a favorite
hobby.
Do not let yourself become

-HI^^H--Hr T-H r


isolated. Seek out and maintain
connections with your community
- friends, relatives, neighbors, co-
workers or church members. Talk
about your experiences with them.
e Pay close attention to your
.physical health as prolonged stress
takes its toll on the body. Maintain a
good diet and make sure you are
getting enough sleep. It is also
helpful to be physically active or to
exercise.
Upsetting times can cause
some people to use alcohol or
drugs to help cope with the stress.
It does not help in the long run and
will likely cause other problems.
For your family
Families should keep some
routines in place such as regular
meals, certain enjoyable activities
and other family rituals. This will
help you feel as though life has
some sense of order and normalcy.
Couples need to attend to
their relationship as this is often
overlooked. Take time to be alone,
to talk about how you are feeling
and to have fun together.
Take time to talk with the chil-
dren about their experience; listen
to what they have to say and let
them freely express their feelings.
This is a confusing and frightening
time for them. Remember that chil-
dren do not have the same level of
coping or understanding that you
have.

Claims to be from FBI,
instead releases virus

TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist warned
Floridians of a rapidly spreading
electronic mail scam that tries to
deceive recipients into believing
a message is from the Federal
Bureau of Investigation (FBI).
Those receiving the e-mail are
told that the FBI has monitored
their Internet use and deter-
mined that they are guilty of
accessing illegal websites.
The e-mail instructs recipients
to open an attachment and
answer a series of questions.
Instead of containing questions
from the federal law enforcement
agency, the attachment actually
unleashes a computer virus. The e-
mail appears to be authentic, as
the originating e-mail address is
either mail@fbi.gov, post@fbi.gov
or admin@fbi.gov. Other originat-
ing addresses are possible.


With the e-mail coming from
such an official-sounding
source, the recipient is enticed to
open the attachment, which
contains a variant of the
w32/sober virus. If the program
within the attachment is execut-
ed, the virus a type of "Trojan
horse" that appears to be inno-
cent but is not is launched
and may adversely affect the
user's computer.
These e-mails did not come
from the FBI, and the bureau
strongly encourages computer
users not to open such attach-
ments. If received, this email
should be deleted without the
user opening it. The FBI is inves-
tigating the matter, and the Flori-
da Attorney General's Office is
monitoring the situation after
being alerted to the existence of
the bogus e-mail by the FBI. The
Attorney General's Office has
already received its first com-
plaint from a consumer harmed
by the virus.

Attorney General launches excavation


MIMS Attorney General
Charlie Crist launched the final
phase of the investigation into the
1951 murders of civil rights leader
Harry T. Moore and his wife Harri-
ette, by initiating an excavation of
the site where the Moores' house
once stood.
Joining Crist in the newest
efforts at uncovering the identity of
her parents' killer or killers was
Juanita Evangeline Moore, daugh-
ter of Harry and Harriette Moore,
and those directly involved with
the investigation.
Investigators with the Attorney
General's Office of Civil Rights
believe the excavation could
uncover important forensic evi-
dence from the explosives used in


the Christmas Day bombing.
Some types of explosive evidence
can linger for years, allowing
experts to possibly determine the
type of explosive that was used.
While an earlier excavation was
conducted on the Moores' proper-
ty, this is the first time the precise
location of the Moores' house will
be examined in minute detail
using modern forensics proce-
dures.
"We will literally leave no stone
unturned in this investigation,"
said Crist. "This tragedy rocked the
lives of many in Florida, and it is
important to take every step neces-
sary in bringing this terrible chap-
ter in our state's history to an end."
The excavation is the latest step


in the investigation, which was re-
opened by Attorney General Crist
on Dec. 21, 2004. The investiga-
tion, conducted under the direc-
tion of the Attorney General's
Office of Civil Rights, has received
tips and has been assisted by the
cooperation of the U.S. Justice
Department and the Florida
Department of Law Enforcement.
More than 100 interviews have
been conducted in search of the
identity of the bomber or
bombers. The Florida Association
of Crime Stoppers assisted Crist's
office in gathering information,
taking tips through the organiza-
tion's hotline and offering a
$25,000 reward for information
leading to the killer, or killers, of


the Moores.
"I appreciate the dedication
Attorney General Crist has shown
in investigating this tragedy," said
Evangeline Moore."I look forward
to the day when those of us affect-
ed by this heinous crime will finally
have some sense of closure."
Harry T. Moore was Florida's
first civil rights pioneer. In 1934, he
organized the Brevard chapter of
the National Association for the
Advancement of Colored People
(NAACP). He fought for equal pay
for black teachers, for voting rights
for black citizens and equality in
the justice system. Harry Moore
died from the blast while Harriette
died nine days later.

the program delivers nutritional

what they are getting, they won't
eat it. She wants to provide more
of a menu choice for the clients,
so if they are choosing it, they will
eat it, and thus get the nutritional
benefits of a good meal with no
waste.
"Some people don't like peas

she said. "We are wanting to

found that not to be the problem
here, however, and I look forward
to working with everyone here,"
said Dr. Fernandez, who has been
a pediatrician for more than eight
years.
Dr. Fernandez received his
Bachelor of Science in Zoology
from George Washington Univer-
sity in August of 1983, and he
earned a doctorate of medicine in
April of 1987 at Spartan Health
Sciences University. He later
received a certification in pedi-
atrics at West Virginia University
in December 1992.
Of particular interest to him
are pediatric infectious diseases,
growth and development and
family social issues. He also
emphasized a personal devotion
towards the quality of health serv-
ices available to migrant workers.
"I have a lot of interest in rural
health, particularly with migrant
workers whom I have been able
to work with and learn a great
deal about their culture," said Dr.
Fernandez, who is fluent in both
English and Spanish. "I also have
a great interest in working with
the pediatric clinics in the Hendry
and Glades areas, for which a
great deal of my background has
prepared me," he said.
The Florida DOH recognized
these interests in the pediatrician,
and values that experience as the
new head of the Hendry and
Glades health department.
"I am eager to see the work of
Dr. Fernandez and his supervisory
skills that he will implement at
Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments," said Dr. Sorensen,
who came to visit the Hendry and
Glades area in November to
inspect post-Hurricane Wilma
health services.

Ms. Nolan arrived at her new
position Oct. 17 and within a
month has already launched her
new program on a limited scale
and she said the clients have been
very pleased with having more
options in which to choose. Ms.
Nolan said all food items are
approved by a dietician before
delivery to individual clients, but
thus far, the pilot project is work-
ing well.
Launching this program into
full-scale operations, as well as
implementing other ideas, comes
back to funding. Ms. Nolan has
the experience and the know
how to achieve her goals, thus
improving the quality of life for
the seniors of Glades and Hendry
Counties.


INI/Bill Fabian
Dr. Neftah Fernandez is the
director for the Hendry/Glades
Health Department.


"With his rich background in
pediatrics, he will truly be an asset
to the department and Floridi-
ans," she said.
Dr. Fernandez described the
staff of the Hendry Glades health
department as "welcoming" and
"quite motivating".
"The professionals I have been
introduced to are very dedicated
and goal-oriented. Nearly every
person here has many years of
experience in this area, especially
in the leadership positions," he
said. "These folks have a great
ability to take a hands-on
approach to any situation, to have
a goal, and achieve that goal, not
just in health," said Dr. Fernandez.
The mission of the Hendry and
Glades County Health Depart-
ments is to promote and protect
the health and safety of all resi-
dents, workers, and visitors of

Police Department for the past
five years, and says the number
of cases being, successfully
processed in a given time period
has increased with improved
technology.
"We now have access to sev-
eral new ways to process foren-
sic evidence, including DNA test-
ing, which we can achieve by
working with the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement," said
Taylor. "We also have access to
national databases that provide
faster and more accurate identifi-
cation of wanted criminals and
other similar cases," said the
investigator.
Taylor provided a dazzling list
of all the crime dramas and reali-
ty shows currently or recently
shown on television, including
the original CSI, CSI: Miami, CSI:
New York, Law and Order, Cold
Case, NCIS, COPS, Hollywood
Justice, Homicide, Life on the
Street, The Profiler, The Shield,
NYPD Blue, Boston Legal, Monk,
Brooklyn South, Crime Story,
Rescue 911, The Sopranos, and
many more.
The overwhelming popularity
of these shows reflects the pub-
lic's keen interest in how law
enforcement agencies operate,
whether the perspective is
behind-the-scenes or at the
scene of the crime.
"Most of the shows on televi-
sion do a pretty good job depict-
ing how we do our jobs," said
Taylor.
As accurate as the shows can
be, some storylines may be a little
more fantastic than what occurs

uals experience irritability, sleep dif-
ficulties, headaches, feelings of
helplessness, hopelessness and
depression, poor self esteem, dis-
tractibility, stress dreams and night-
mares, eating problems, substance

"Individuals experiencing
extreme stress because of finances
should give themselves permission
to simply notify friends and family
that they are not doing any gift giv-
ing and gift exchanges until further
notice. And as a society we should


all stop contributing to the idea that
it is worthy of shame to find one's
self in this kind of difficulty. There
are far too many people these days
finding themselves in financial diffi-
culty no matter how hard they
work.
"There are alternatives to gift
giving that can still keep a person
involved in the Christmas spirit. Vol-
unteering some hours, for exam-
ple, at a shelter, would be very
much in keeping with Christmas.
Visiting shut-ins or visiting with eld-
erly people without families at

he said.

Jared Bacallao (center) took third place in his 125-pound
division at a tournament that featured 19 teams.


CLEWISTON Kicking off
their mat season, the Clewiston
Tigers competed in their first dual
of the new wrestling season with
a head-to-head match with cross-
county rival LaBelle, Dec. 7 in
Clewiston.
The Tigers are grooming a
couple of potential champions
down the line, but are a young
squad overall and the resulting
experience level went the way of
the Cowboys who sealed the
team victory 39-33. The Cowboys
took wins in the 130-pound divi-
sion with Colin Sparks getting the
victory, Mickey Clay won his 189-
pound match both wrestlers
getting pins; LaBelle's Patrick
McLymont also scored a major
decision, adding to the Cowboys'
points for the match.
Clewiston had a solid outing in
other weight classes, however,
with Brandon Caulkins picking up
a pin in the 119-pound division, as
did Tiger phenom Kris Smith who
scored a pin in the coveted 145-
pound class. The Tigers also
scored major victories with Arse-
nio Kamirez, Jared Bacallao and
Bryon Holmes getting the wins in
their individual weight classes.
Overall, it was a solid outing
for the Tigers who faced a Cow-
boy team coming off a second
place finish in the Key West Invita-
tional.
The Tigers packed up their
gear three days later and headed
to Pinellas Park High School for a
two-day invitational that featured
19 schools, much of them com-
peting for significantly larger
schools than Clewiston. Some of
those schools included squads
from St. Petersburg and one visit-
ing team from Washington State.
This was the biggest challenge
some of the young Tiger mat war-
riors had yet to see and Clewiston
met the challenge head on to fin-
ish 10th out of the 19 schools,
which included placing a trio of
Tiger grapplers in the finals.
Bacallao, wrestling in the 125-


pound category coasted through 3-2 record. One of Smi losses


the first day of competition with
undefeated records to put them-
selves in the championship
rounds on day two.
Bacallao would suffer a defeat
in his first match of the second
day, but rallied to win his next
three matches to take third place
overall with a 4-1 record for the
tournament.
Edmond duplicated that effort,
dropping his first match, but win-
ning three in a row to also finish
third overall.
Smith would also drop his first


came against the eventual winner
from Northeast High School, in
Largo, who was also voted as the
Most Valued Wrestler of the tour-
nament. Smith loss a close 18-16
decision to the eventual champ.
The Tigers will be back in
action this weekend as they head
to St. Petersburg's South Side
High School for another tough,
two-day tournament and also
look forward to gaining a home-
town advantage after the holidays
when Clewiston will host their
Invitational Jan. 8.

Lady Cowgirls. stunned Clewiston


LABELLE With the Lady
Tigers from Clewiston High School
launching an early, but successful,
district campaign in the 2005-2006
girls basketball season, Clewiston
was hoping to extend their district
record with a victory over the, thus
far, winless Lady Cowgirls from
LaBelle High School.
Clewiston came into the game
with one district loss and looked
to take over first place with a win
over LaBelle, but the Lady Cow-
girls had other ideas as they
sealed a 54-37 victory over the


stunned Lady Tigers.
The Lady Cowgirls took full
advantage of their opening
momentum and launched a 16-6
run in the opening quarter and
never looked back while taking a
30-18 lead into the break.
Clewiston's Nicole Pope racked
up 21 points for the Lady Tigers in
an impressive outing, but didn't
get much help with the exception
of Desire Lopez, who scored six,
and Precious Bryant who con-
tributed with five points.
Clewiston managed to keep


pace in the third quarter with
each squad posting 15 points,
but LaBelle extended their
advantage in the final stanza to
seal the 54-37 victory.

Tropical anthuriums for holiday color


A common complaint given
for folks not wanting to buy tra-
ditional holiday plants like poin-
settia is that they look good for
the holidays, but they go bad
soon afterwards. Over the past
few years, UF horticultural
researchers and the nursery
industry have been developing a
new colorful plant suitable for
holiday giving and seasonal col-
ors.
S Anthurium have the addition-
al good points that they will last
well into the new year, and they
are an affordable way to add a
new tropical Florida look to tra-
ditional holiday greenery.
Today's column will tempt you
with news about this "Flamingo,
Flower", and suggest how to
select and care for this up and
coming Holiday gift.
There are between 800 and
1,000 known species of Antheri-
ums, which are native to the
tropical Americas, from Mexico,
Costa Rica, and Cuba to Brazil
and Argentina. Different species
have different growth habits -
some climb up trees, others are
firmly planted in soil, and there
are still more that are airplants.
The common names,of Tail-
S flower, Cockscomb, Flamingo
Flower, Hawaiian Love Plant,
and Tongue of Fire all attest to
the beauty of most Anthurium
species.
Anthuriums have shiny dark
green, oblong, heart-shaped
leaves. However, it is their color-
ful and long-lasting flowers con-
sisting of brightly colored
"leaves" or spathes, and con-
trasting or complementary
bumpy flower-stalks, know as
spadices. These showy plastic-
looking flowers come in many
shades, including red, rose,
pink, and white. The protruding
tail-like flower can be white, yel-
low and sometimes pink.
Not only are the bloom cut
and included in floral arrange-
ments, they are now commonly
available as flowering house-
plants that will rival many other
holiday plants for color, texture
and ease of care. Anthurium can
flower year round poinsettia
flowers are only a seasonal visi-
tor.
Lots of breeding research
with this plant has resulted in
many new anthurium cultivars,
bringing consumers a whole
new world of colors, sizes,
shapes, and textures. Other
research has improved the
methods to grow these plants in
Florida and Hawaii tissue culture
labs and greenhouses. UF/IFAS


research and nursery innovation
now make our state the num-
ber-one producer of this potted
plant in the world today.
Among new cultivars are
plants adapted to growing in
small containers. Repotting may
actually discourage the produc-
tion of flowers, as that these
plants will do well in a root
bound confined condition. I
recently purchased a "Volcano
PlantTM, grown in Hawaii, that
is growing on a piece of volcanic
rock the root ball is no bigger
that two inches in diameter. (For
those interested, I have placed a
Web page on-line that shows the
diversity of colors, sizes and tex-
tures of these tropical beauties.)
According to former UF Exten-
sion Specialist Dr. Rick Schoell-
horn, three myths have discour-
aged consumers from choosing
Anthuriums as houseplants:
These are (NOT) low-light
plants. Research has shown that
one reason why these plants
stop blooming is a lack of light.
Bright, indirect light (80 percent
to 90 percent shade) is the right
amount of light in Florida. It is
necessary to keep them away
from direct sunlight, which will
burn the leaves.
Anthuriums (DON'T) need
lots of vater. In fact, it is best to
let Anthuriums dry out between
waterings. This will cut down on
root-rot disease and gives the
roots a chance to breathe. Once
dry, don't forget to water these
tropical beauties, as they are not
drought tolerant, and the leaf
tips will scorch if left dry. Misting
with water is also recommended
to dislodge dust and temporarily
increase relative humidity.
Anthuriums (DON'T) need
lots of fertilizer. Actually, a lot of
problems can occur when too
much fertilizer given to these
plants. Over-fertilization, espe-
cially with nitrogen, leads to leaf
burn and may discourage flow-
ering. Use a soluble fertilizer
with a 1-2-1 ratio, and occasion-
ally flush the root ball with water
to remove fertilizer salt buildup.
Finally, since they are tropi-
cals, keep them in pots so they
can be moved inside when tem-
peratures soar above 90 degrees
F or drop below 70 degrees F.
Avoid placing them near drafts
and excessive heat or cold, espe-
cially from televisions,' refrigera-
tors, and similar appliances. Fol-
low these care instructions and
few pest issues will occur.
Some small words cf caution:
There is the potential for irrita-
tion of the mouth and digestive


symptoms if large quantities of and eyes if they come in contact
the plants are eaten. Sensitive with the sap. Place Anthuriums
persons may .receive minor, in the home out of reach of kids
short-term irritation of the skin and pets to avoid these issues. -


Masilotti improves


western communities


In an effort to improve the
safety of residents in the west-
ern communities, Commis-
sioner Tony Masilotti spear-
headed an ordinance to have
Palm Beach County Fire Res-
cue service the residents of
Belle Glade; Pahokee and
South Bay. The Board of
County Commissioners
approved the ordinance with
a 7-0 vote at their Tuesday,
Dec. 6 meeting.
The inclusion of Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay
into the Fire Rescue Municipal
Service Taxing Unit (MSTU)
will allow Fire Rescue to
expand its services into these
communities and will include
improved fire stations, para-
medic services and expanded
fire coverage.
"The residents of Palm
Beach County drive all over
the county, not just in, their
neighborhoods, all of our resi-
dents should have the same
level of service, regardless of
where they are in the county,"
said Commissioner Masilotti.
In 2004, the County Com-
mission developed a Level of'
Service standard for the entire
county to ensure all county
residents received an equal
level of fire and rescue servic-
es. Communities could

Tony Masilotti,

accomplish this by increasing
or enhancing their current
level of service, partnering
with another community or by
contracting with an agency
that meets the level of service
standard. The cities of Belle
Glade, Pahokee and South Bay
have all agreed to join the
main Fire MSTU and become
part of Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue..
"This makes sense," added
Commissioner Masilotti, "We
have the ability to make their
lives better by providing this
vital service, they need it, we
have it, I'm just glad to be a
part of the solution."

Right plant, right place to plant


Check out our classified online,
visit www.newszap.com/classifieds


By Ed Ayen
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
This is the third in a series of
articles written on the new area
program called Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods. The program is
being implemented through your
local county extension service in
Highlands, Okeechobee and
Glades County and is partially
funded from Clean Water Act Sec-
tion 319 funding from the U.S. EPA
through the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection.
Plant selection can be the fun
part of landscaping a "Florida
Friendly Yard". If you are from the
north country, like I am, you prob-
ably marvel at the diversity of


plants that grow in this area. You
may want to try everything or are
dismayed at the number and find
it hard to choose. Remember, the
plants you select determine the
level of maintenance required
and also how long your land-
scape will last.
Plants already on your proper-
ty, particularly low maintenance
native plants, should be retained.
Saving existing plants reduces
cost and leaves valuable wildlife
habitat undisturbed.
Select from a list that includes
suitable native plants, as once they
are established, most require little,
if any, supplemental water, fertiliz-
er or pesticides. If you won't be


irrigating your yard, select drought
tolerant plants that are suited to
your soil. Consider flowering and
fruiting plants, that bring birds and
butterflies into your yard.
Please do not plant noxious or
invasive species. Florida prohibits
planting of Brazilian Pepper, Aus-
tralian Pine, Melaleuca, Carrot-
wopd, Chinese Tallow and many
others.
Strive to create a mosaic of trees,
shrubs, groundcovers, native grass-
es and wildflowers. Large plantings
of the same species are.prone to
disease and insect infestation.
Turf areas should be functional
and designed for easy mainte-
nance. Bahiagrass tends to be


more carefree than St. Augustine.
Groundcovers are especially
useful in shady or sloped areas
where turf may not thrive or is dif-
ficult to maintain.
Don't be fooled by the Quick-
fix appeal of fast growing plants.
They require more pruning, result-
ing in more clippings and yard
waste. Slower growing plants may
take longer, but they will last
longer and create less work.
Choose plants hardy in this
region. We do have occasional
frost throughout the area and
non-hardy plants may not survive.
Also, plants tuned to cooler cli-
mates may not survive our hot,
humid summers.


Crist issues civil subpoenas in Adelphia Cable TV sale


Wants to ensure
Florida consumers
are protected
TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist announced
that his office has issued subpoe-
nas to three of the nation's
largest cable television compa-
nies, in order to obtain copies of
documents related to the effort
by Comcast and Time Warner to
acquire customers now served
by competitor Adelphia Com-
munications Corp. The potential
purchase of Adelphia by Com-
cast and Time Warner could
affect at least a half-million Flori-
da consumers.
Adelphia, the fifth-largest
cable provider in the United
States, is looking to sell its cable
systems and assets to Comcast
Corporation and Time Warner
Inc. for a total of $12.7 billion.
Comcast, the nation's largest
cable provider, and Time Warn-


er, the third-largest, in turn are
asking the federal government
for permission to exchange cer-
tain cable systems and assets in
order to create regional clusters,
which the companies say would
make them more efficient and
potentially lead to lower rates.
The civil investigative
demands issued by the Attorney
General's Office ask the three
companies to provide copies of
all documents that have been or
will be submitted to the Federal
Trade Commission, the U.S.
Department of Justice and the
Federal Communications Com-
mission. The subpoenas also
request documents provided to
the companies by the federal
agencies related to the Adelphia
acquisition.
"The best way to keep cable
prices low is to ensure a compet-
itive marketplace," said Crist.
"Comcast and Time Warner pro-
vide a valuable service to mil-
lions of Florida consumers, and
we hope they continue to meet


customers' needs once the Adel-
phia acquisition has been com-
pleted. Our goal is to make sure
the interests of Florida con-
sumers are protected once a
company's competitor is
acquired."
In addition to acquiring Adel-
phia assets, Comcast and Time
Warner are seeking permission
to swap some of their own
assets in order to concentrate
their resources in more compact
geographic areas. The potential
impact on Florida cable markets
primarily involves the sale of
Adelphia assets to Comcast, with
some additional transfer of Time
Warner assets to Comcast. If the
sale and transfer are approved
by the federal government, Com-
cast will add approximately
510,000 customers in four large
markets: Miami (approximately
85,000), West Palm Beach
(approximately 308,000), Fort
Myers-Naples (approximately
72,000) and Orlando (approxi-
mately 45,000).


Crist said he plans to seek
assurances that the Adelphia
sale will not eliminate beneficial
"overbuilding" that has occurred
in certain areas of the state,
including parts of the Orlando
area. In those limited areas,
more than one cable company
installed the necessary facilities
and provide cable service to the
same neighborhoods, thus pro-
moting a competitive market-
place. Since competition can
drive down consumer costs, the
attorney general plans to seek
assurances from Comcast that
Adelphia resources in these
"overbuilt" areas will not be sold
to rivals, thereby eliminating
direct competition.
The civil investigative
demands require that the
requested documents be sub-
mitted to the Attorney General's
Antitrust Division by Dec. 26, but
the companies have indicated
that they will begin providing
some documents immediately.

Myths and misunderstandings about disaster assistance


ORLANDO Recovery officials
voiced concern that word-of-
mouth misinformation may dis-
courage eligible Wilma-impacted
individuals from seeking help from
the Department of Homeland
Security's Federal Emergency Man-
agementAgency (FEMA) and Flori-
da's State Emergency Response
Team (SERT).
"The last thing you need in a dis-
aster is misinformation," said State
Coordinating Officer Craig Fugate.
"The best way to avoid that prob-
lem is to call the toll-free tele-regis-
tration number and ask what kind
of assistance is available to you."
Residents who suffered dam-
ages and losses as a result of Hurri-
cane Wilma should apply for assis-
tance immediately by calling (800)
621-FEMA (3362). Those with a
speech or hearing impairment can
call (TMY) (800) 462-7585. The lines
are open 24/7 until further notice.
You may also apply online at
www.fema.gov. ,
"There are many coirrion'mis-
:onceptions that should simply be
ignored," said Justin DeMello, Fed-
eral Coordinating Officer. "Resi-
dents should call and get accurate
information."


Some of the myths heard in past
disasters include:
I received help from a previous
disaster so I'm not eligible.
Not true. Every disaster is con-
sidered separately. When you call
to register a specialist will evaluate
your application for the current dis-
aster.
I have insurance, so there is no
other help available.
Not true. FEMA will not dupli-
cate insurance benefits, but you
may be eligible for help with losses
not covered or damage in excess of
your coverage. That's why it's
important to register for assistance
even while you are working with
your insurance company to assess
your insurance coverage.
I have to wait for my insurance
adjuster before I apply for disaster
assistance.
Not true. Don't wait for an
adjuster before applying for aid or
making necessary repairs to make
your house livable. However, you
'should findout What your policy-
covers, and be sure to keep papers
and receipts for any work.
I already repaired my home. I
don't need to apply.
Not true. You might qualify for


reimbursement of expenses not
covered by insurance.
I received help from the Red
Cross, so now I can't get help from
FEMA or the state.
Not true. FEMA and SERT coor-
dinate a number of programs to
help disaster victims. These pro-
grams are different from the emer-
gency food, clothing and shelter ini-
tially provided by the Red Cross and
other voluntary agencies.
I received help from the Red
Cross, so I'm already registered
with FEMA.
Not true. Registration with the
Red Cross is not the same as regis-
tration with FEMA.
I make too much money to
qualify for disaster aid.
Not true. The kinds of help pro-
vided depend on each applicant's
circumstances. Federal and state
disaster assistance programs may
be available to those who suffered
damage, regardless of income.
I have to be turned down by my,
~i.i L f)'-I i : :ir' apply for-a disas-
ter loan.
Not true. The U.S. Small Busi-
ness Administration (SBA), which
handles low-interest disaster loans,
has its own criteria for determining


each loan applicant's eligibility. The
SBA will decide whether or not you
are able to repay a loan. If you are.
not qualified for a loan, you may be
eligible for a FEMA grant, but it is
necessary to go through the SBA
application process first.
I must own a business to apply
for a loan from the SBA.
Not true. Based on the type and
extent of "uninsured" or "underin-
sured" disaster-related losses and
damages, individuals may be eligi-
ble for low-interest loans for home
or personal property losses.
I rent an apartment. I can't get
help.
Not true. There are several types
of assistance available to renters.
One type of grant may help a renter
with temporary housing needs if
they have to move because of dis-
aster damage or loss. Another type
of grant is available to an eligible
individual or family with serious,
disaster-related needs and neces-
sary expenses that are not covered
by insurance or other disaster assis-
tance programs. A renter may also
qualify for an SBA low-interest dis-
aster loan.

color, 60-page guidebook, "The Ultimate Doily
Book." The book includes all the information you
need to get started, including complete step-by-step
instructions for 17 original designs, tips on crochet
hooks and cotton, a guide to abbreviations and sym-
bols and more.
