Storm season



Almost here


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
It is that time of the season
again: hurricane season.
The Clewiston area experi-
enced hurricane damage in
the 2004 and 2005 hurricane
season. As Floridians face
another hurricane season,
being prepared to help you
and your family minimize the
impact of a disaster emer-
gency is becoming a more
important endeavor.
According to the American
Red Cross, the best way to
make your family and. your
home safer is to be prepared
before disaster strikes. The
Red Cross encourages you to
educate yourself and your
family.
When listening to weather
updates, it's important to
know the difference between a


hurricane watch and a hurri-
cane warning.
Watch: Hurricane condi-
tions are possible in the speci-
fied area of the watch, usually
within 36 hours.
Warning: Hurricane con-
ditions are expected in the
specified area of the warning,
usually within 24 hours.
Long before the warnings,
residents are urged to make an
emergency plan in case of a
disaster. Practice this plan with
your entire family.
Build a disaster supplies
kit that includes enough sup-
plies for each family member
for three days. Remember to
check your kit every -six
months.

On Memorial Day, May 29,
2006, the Veterans of Foreign

Memorial Day is a sacred
day to all veterans. Sacrifice is
meaningless unless we
remember and on this day be
aware of the deaths of all veter-

flicts past and present.
We often take for granted
the freedoms we enjoy, the
freedoms which were paid for
with the lives of others. Many
wars were fought long before
we were born. Today, some of


us can remember Korea, Viet-
nam, the Persian Gulf,
Afghanistan and Iraq. .Our
country's military has fought
and still fights, not just for our
particular freedoms, but for the
freedoms of all people. Hun-
dreds of thousands of service-

Clewiston News,
CLEWISTON Inspired by
dreams of what their future
careers may have in store for
them, children participating in,
this year's "Picture This as a
Career" poster contest filled
blank canvases with colorful
hopes.
The annual contest chal-
lenges students to depict a pos-
sible career choice as they imag-
ine it to be on a blank canvas
and winners are then selected
by school staff.
The poster contest is spon-
sored by the First Jobs/First
Wages Committee of the
Southwest Florida Workforce
Development Board. Students
in the general region of Char-
lotte, Collier, Glades, Hendry
and Lee counties participate in


the contest.
According to Mary Watford,
chair of the First Jobs/First
Wages Committee, the contest
encourages students to start
.thinking about their futures.
While working on their illustra-
tions, students get a chance to
explore exactly what a job
entails.
Judges faced a difficult deci-
sion after reviewing the pic-
tures, with children turning in
wonderful works of art span-
ning a variety of different jobs
and careers.

Sugar farming part of Flo


By MaryAnn Morris :| .


Sugarcane is a tropical grass
native to Asia where it has been
grown for over 4,000 years. Meth-
ods for manufacturing sugar
from sugarcane were developed
in India about 400 BC. Christo-
pher Columbus brought the
plant to the West Indies, and
today sugarcane is cultivated in
tropical and sub-tropical regions
throughout the world. Over 75
percent of the world's sugar
comes from sugarcane.
Florida's sugar cane farms are
just one of the agriculture indus-
tries in the Everglades Agricultur-
al Area.
Sugar part of
Florida history
Long ago, sugar was grown in
many areas of Florida. It was first
commercially manufactured in
Florida near New Smyrna from
1767 until 1776. Near the
Homosassa River, is a state park
to mark the site of the old Yulee
Sugar Mill. David Levy Yulee was
a member of the Territorial Leg-
islative Council, and served in the
U.S. House of Representatives
and U.S. Senate operated a sugar
plantation from 1851 to 1864.
Spain had deeded most of the
land to Mr. Yulee during the Span-
ish occupation. The mill pro-
duced sugar, syrup and molasses.
(Molasses was used to make
rum.) The supplied of sugar
products for southern troops dur-
ing the Civil War, but was aban-
doned. Later, in the late 1800s,
Hamilton Disston, who master-
minded the drainage of the Ever-
glades also had a sugar planta-
tion is St. Cloud, but it fell to bad
management.
Modern
sugar farms
Although sugarcane can be
grown anywhere in Florida, the
commercial sugarcane industry is
in south Florida around the south-
ern tip of Lake Okeechobee. This
area is so compact, most Florida
visitors never see a sugarcane
field. Palm Beach County
accounts for about 70 percent of
the commercial sugarcane
acreage. The remainder is grown
in the adjacent counties: Martin,
Glades, and Hendry.
The fertile organic soil and the
warming influence of Lake Okee-
chobee, bring the sugar industry
here. Killing cold temperatures
don't often happen near the lake.
There is generally adequate water
and lots of sunshine.
400,000 acres
in crops
Recently, there has been a
slight decline in commercial sug-
arcane production in Florida. Sug-
arcane acreage has decreased
from a high of 454,400 acres in
the 2000-01 crop to about 400,000
acres in the 2004-05 crop.
The 2000-2001 crop yielded
2.02 million tons of raw sugar.
The 2004-05 crop yielded 1.56
million tons of raw sugar. In 2004-
05, Florida contributed an esti-
mated 51.3 percent of the cane
sugar and 21.4 percent of the total
sugar produced in the United
States, including beet sugar.
Putting Florida's cane crop
into perspective, prior to the
Cuban embargo in 1961, Florida
had only 50,000 acres of sugar-
cane as compared to 400,000
acres in 2004-05. In 2004, Flori-
da's raw sugar crop was valued at
roughly $550 million, according
to the United States Department
of Agriculture.
Sugarcane is Florida's most
valuable field crop, worth more
than the combined value of the
Florida-grown corn, soybean,
tobacco, and peanut crops. Sug-
arcane ranks third in Florida's
agricultural economy, behind the
greenhouse/nursery and citrus
industries.
Environmental
concerns
Not only does sugar support
Florida's economy, but also, most
of the fibrous portion of the cane
stalks, called "bagasse" is burned
as fuel for the mills. This saves an
estimated 113 million gallons of
fuel oil or 2.1 billion kilowatt
hours of electricity each year.


Since sugarcane is over half water
to start with, enough water is
recovered during processing so
that sugar mills actually produce
water rather than consume it.
Most of the "smoke" coming from
sugar mills is actually steam com-
ing from the mill boilers.
Research
under way
At Canal Point, the USDA-ARS
Sugarcane Field Station works to
produce improved varieties
adapted to Florida conditions.
High sugar yields, disease resist-

ance, rapid growth, and tolerance
to high water tables are among
the traits sought in new sugar-
cane varieties.
At Belle Glade, the University
of Florida Everglades Research
and Education Center cooperates
in the variety development pro-
gram and conducts research on
sugarcane nutrition and physiolo-
gy, pest control, water use, and
other problems.
At Immokalee, the University
of Florida Southwest Florida
Research and Education Center
researches to help sugarcane pro-
ducers on the mineral soils of
southwest Florida. Research
results and recommendations
(fertilization, weed control, etc.)
are presented in reports and
meetings sponsored by the Uni-
versity of Florida Cooperative
Extension Service.
United States Sugar Corpora-
tion, Florida Crystals Corporation,
and the Sugar Cane Growers
Cooperative of Florida, do their
own research and also support
research programs at University
of Florida and USDA facilities.
How is cane
grown?
Sugarcane is planted from late
August through January. A favor-
able variety of sugarcane is plant-
ed by using parts of the mother
plant, which produces new
plants. As of 2005, hand planting
is still commonly practiced. Por-
tions of mature sugarcane fields
are saved for "seed cane" (the
cane used for the next planted
crop). Instead of being mechani-
cally harvested, these stalks of
seed cane are hand-cut with
machetes, loaded onto wagons,
transported to the'new field, and
dropped horizontally into shallow
furrows. Cane stalks haye buds
("eyes") every 2 to 6 inches and
each bud can sprout rapidly when
buried in moist soil
(http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/SC034).
Within 2 to 3 weeks, shoots
emerge and, under favorable con-
ditions, produce secondary
shoots to give a dense stand of
cane.
Sugarcane is harvested from
late-October through mid-April. If
there are no freezes, sugar yields
are typically highest after Decem-
ber.
Years ago, sugarcane was
hand-harvested using cane
knives. Improvements in
mechanical harvesters have
resulted in a total movement
away from hand harvesting.
Machine-harvested acreage
increased from 30 percent in 1987
to 100 percent in 1993.
Ripe cane is burned to get rid
of dead leaves and other trash that
would otherwise interfere with
the harvest, increase transporta-
tion costs to the mill, clog milling
machinery, and absorb sugar dur-
ing the extraction process. Fields
are burned just before harvest.
The fires are rather spectacular
but of short duration (a 40-acre
field burns in 15-20 minutes).
Burning is done only in the day-
time (under a permit from the
Department of Forestry) when
dispersal of the smoke by air cur-
rents causes the minimum nui-
sance.
After burning, mechanical
harvesters cut and deposit the cut
cane directly into field wagons.
Tractors haul 16 tons of cane out
of the field with each 4-wagon
load. At special ramps near the


field, the cane is dumped from
the wagon into highway trailers
or rail cars to be taken to the
mills. Rail cars carry 25 to 30 tons
each and highway trailers carry
20 tons per load.
Refining the sugar
At the mill, the cane is crushed
between heavy rollers to squeeze
out the juice. Small amounts of
hot water are then added and the
fiber is squeezed four more times
to remove as much juice as possi-
ble. Then lime is then added to
the juice to help filter out cane
fibers and soil, and keep the
desirable sugar (sucrose) from
going into other sugar forms that
won't crystallize. The sucrose
solution is concentrated by evap-
orating off the water (which is
recovered and reused by the mill)
until raw sugar crystals form. For
each pound of sugar produced,.
6.5 pounds or 3 quarts of water
must be boiled off.
Raw sugar is stored in high
piles in large warehouses until it
is shipped to a refinery. Looking
like very coarse sand, it is moved
by belt conveyors, front-end load-
ers, or dump trucks, loaded into
large dump trucks, railcars,
barges, or ships for transporta-
tion to refineries.
Two refineries in our area
make both granulated and liquid
sugar: one in South Bay and the
other in Clewiston. The granulat-
ed sugar is packaged in con-
sumer-size bags while liquid-
sugar is shipped in tanker trucks
to use in beverages, processed
foods, and bakery goods.
America's
sweet tooth
On average, each person in the
United States consumes about
61.5 pounds of refined sugar per
person per year (2004); roughly
205 stalks of sugarcane. At 30,000
stalks per acre, one acre grows
roughly enough for 146 Ameri-
cans a year
If that sounds like a lot of
sugar, realize: sugar is consumed
as follows: 32 percent as pack-
aged sugar, 20 percent in bakery
and cereal products, 15 percent in
confectionery products, 6 percent
in dairy products, 5 percent in
processed foods, and 4 percent in
beverages.
Who grows the
sugar cane?
SOver 70,000 acres of sugar-
cane are farmed by the member-
growers of the Sugar Cane Grow-
ers Cooperative of Florida. From
this acreage, on an annual basis,
over 350,000 tons of raw sugar is
produced. Once refined, this is
enough to serve the average
annual demand of more than 9
million Americans.
The cooperative engages in
the activities necessary to be suc-
cessful in the complex, science-
intensive arena that is sugar farm-
ing. It provides the services of
harvesting, transporting and
milling of sugarcane and the mar-
keting of raw-sugar and black-
strap molasses.
Today, 54 grower-members
make up the Cooperative.
Always, each member, no matter
how large or small his farm, is
treated equally, with each mem-
ber having one vote. A Board of
Directors determines policy and
provides direction for the man-
agement team.. Day-to-day busi-
ness operations are handled by
the professionals who make up
the staff.
US Sugar
In 1921, the Pennsuco Sugar
Company, which owned several
hundred thousand acres of land
from Miami to Lake Okeechobee,
sent Ernest Graham to Florida to
drain the swamps.and plant sug-
arcane to supply its Philadelphia
refinery. Pennsuco built a, mill
near what is now Hialeah in 1921.
In 1926, a hurricane struck and
flooded the area. Pennsuco gave
up sugar farming and eventually
retreated completely. The
Pennsuco mill became part of the
Southern Sugar Company in
1925.
The Clewiston Sugar Mill was
opened by Southern Sugar in
1929. It could process 1,500 tons
of cane per day. This attempt also
failed.
Then in April, 1931,.automo-


Some history
Despite favorable growing
conditions, sugar production in
Florida struggled for many years.
In the 1930s, a mill was built in
Fellsmere, near Vero Beach. It
operated until 1965. During World
War II another mill was moved
from Puerto Rico to Okeelanta,
near South Bay.
As others recognized the poten-
tial of the lake area, new sugar
cane operations began to arrive
with the U.S embargo of Cuba in
the 1960s. The industry began a
period of dramatic growth. Flori-
da's sugar industry expanded in
order to replace sugar once
imported from Cuba. After the
Cuban revolution, the Florida
sugar industry grew rapidly.
Florida Crystals
After Castro took over Cuba
and seized their property, the Fan-
jul family fled to America, bring-
ing their generations of sugar
making expertise with them.
Presently, the four Fanjul brothers,
Alfonso, Jose, Andres and Alexan-
der own and manage their pri-
vately held Flo-Sun Corporation,
Flo-Sun Corporation is the
umbrella corporation for a num-
ber of diverse businesses, includ-
ing Florida Crystals. The company
owns and farms 180,000 acres of
sugar fields in South Florida and
owns and operates the Okeelanta
Sugar Mill near South Bay.
Water management
Sugar farms require water to
grow sugarcane. A relatively high
water table (deeper than 24 inch-
es below ground) is desirable, so
when heavy .rains come during
the growing season, water must
be pumped off the fields to avoid
damaging the crop. When there is
no rain, water must be pumped
back in to keep the cane growing.
In the off season, fields are
sometimes deliberately flooded
for weeks at a time. This helps
control weeds, disease and
insects and slows subsidence of
the peat soil. Some farmers grow
rice in the fields during the other-
wise fallow time.
After being used as a cover
crop for many years, rice was first
harvested as a grain in 1977.
Experiments have shown that
planting rice means an increased
sugar yield the next year. Growing
rice in rotation with sugarcane is a
"best management
practice" (BMP).
Researchers at University of
Florida developed the standards
for the BMPs for South Florida
Water Management District and
the Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Regulation monitors
pesticide residue in runoff from
the farms. BMPs became manda-
tory in January, 1995 with the
main objective to reduce phos-
phorous from fertilizer in the
runoff from the farms. As of 2004,
phosphorous has been reduced
44 percent overall for the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area, much
more that was anticipated.

OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, May 25, 2006


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the Clewiston issues forum at http://www.newszapforums
.com/forum52. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often as
you would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks or
profanities, please). Comments will be published in the newspaper as
space permits.
BORDERS: It has been five years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and we
still do not have our borders secured. If millions of pregnant Mexican
mothers and aging Mexican grandfathers can successfully cross our
porous southern border, how difficult would it be for a ruthless trained
terrorist to bring across a small nuclear device? Border security must be
taken seriously. Our country cannot tolerate any further the immigration
lawlessness creating a majestic political divide among American citizens.

PROTESTS: I suspect that those who stayed out of school or left
school to protest the proposals to crack down on illegal immigration
may not realize that they illustrated a point made by their opponents.
By staying out of school, the immigrants showed others just how
many migrant children are in school, and how if they were not in the
schools, the school overcrowded would be eased. Instead of boy-
cotting school, they should be taking advantage of every minute they
have to advance their educations.

EX OFFENDERS: I agree with having sexual offenders nowhere
around areas children are present, however, I would like to know why
the city seems to want to punish everyone outside the city limits by
making such a stringent ordinance limiting the rules applying to resi-
dences, landlords, etc. of said offenders. Yes, the city is making it virtu-
ally impossible for these people to find housing in Clewiston but why
should Hendry County have to take on the responsibility the city seems
to want to sweep out their door. Offenders have certain restrictions
applied to them already by the State of Florida, however, I have never
heard of a landlord being subjected to such restrictions. The people
outside the city deserve consideration also. With so much emphasis
being put on the offenders themselves I would like to ask why the
adult males, 18 years and over, are not being prosecuted for getting so
many of our young girls, some as young as 14, pregnant. The legal age
for adulthood is 18 and anything younger is a minor and these girls are
not old enough to truly "give their permission". People are being
arrested and sent to jail for the same offenses while these "adult" 18
years or older males are walking around our neighborhoods free after
having committed the same acts of molestation/statutory rape on
these soon to be young, underage, mothers. Why aren't the laws
applied to everyone? There is enough law enforcement affiliated with
the schools to know who these unfortunate girls are and should take it
upon themselves to pursue their situations and see justice done. Par-
ents you need to not only be watching for the so called known offend-
ers but you also might just want to take a good hard look at the ones
who are getting away with the same offenses. They may be your next
door neighbor whose name or picture isn't on the offender list.


Letter to the Editor


Crew helping
community
CREW has been helping peo-
ple throughout our community
(Hendry and Glades counties) and
identifying others that need help
for several months. Over the next
three months, CREW has already
scheduled three volunteer crews
from Lakeland, Pennsylvania,
Ohio and Indiana who are volun-
teering their times, donating sup-
plies and costs or transportation
and personal costs to come to our
community to help rebuild homes
and mend lives. CREW has identi-
fied a lot of people with needs and
it will take a long time to meet all
their needs, obviously the more
volunteers we have and the more
donations we have, the quicker
this process will be. Many other
long term recovery groups that
have helped communities like
ours recover have found it takes


years. CREW expects the same.
I wanted to take the time to
acknowledge the many people
who have helped get us to where
we are today. I think it is important
that the community knows how
local individuals and business have
helped us, as well as those from far
away. Crystal Strickland, Patricia
and David Adams, AGAPE home,
and Babcock Furniture donated
mattress for people whose mat-
tresses were destroyed in the hurri-
cane. Rawl's Real Estate donated
office furniture. The Career and
Service center has donated office
equipment and supplies. Blue
tarps were donated from the Core
of Engineers, New Harvest Church,
and the First United Methodist
Church. Lumber was donated by
Ronald Rounds, who also volun-
teered time and skilled labor. Bent-
ley Killmon donated use of truck.
Carson Killmon, Miguel Herrera
and Tracy Rounds donated time


and labor. Veronica Gambel donat-
ed dry wall as did Davidson's Dry
Cleaners who also generously
donated paneling and carpet.
David and Tommy McClussky
donated time and labor. Wanda
Banks donated a hot water heater.
David Adams volunteered time and
skilled labor and use of materials.
The City of Clewiston has provided
us office space, and City Building
and Zoning Department has pro-
vided invaluable advice and feed-
back for us as we prepare to help
clients rebuild their homes. The
First United Methodist Church also
has donated a lot of time, food, and
office space and office supplies
and covered a lot of our start up
costs, as well as hosting several vol-
unteer groups. Pastor and Kathy
Hicks, of this same church, also
provided numerous hours of vol-
unteer time and professional
expertise, as well as furniture. The
Community Presbyterian Church


donated a Shed and volunteer
time. The First Baptist Church
donated time and labor.
In addition, we have lots of
exciting things happening. We are
hoping to assist at least 5 families
living in condemned trailers apply
for new donated ones, assist a vol-
unteer group and family build a
home from the ground up, repair
interior damage for those whose
insurance only covered their roofs,
repair and replace roofs, referral
and advocacy as well as case man-
agement services to families, edu-
cation, and many other services.
We have volunteer groups coming
in from Lakeland, Ohio, Indiana
and Pennsylvania. We also hope to
increase our volunteer labor by
recruiting local individuals and
organizations to assist as well.
Thankyou,
TrishAdams

Hendry/ Glades County


Chamber Chatter


By Sean Moore

Greetings from the Chamber!
Welcome to the first column in
what I hope will be a long part-
nership between the Clewiston
News and the Clewiston Cham-
ber of Commerce. I would like to
begin this week by thanking Jose
Zaragoza and his fine staff at the
newspaper for allowing us the
opportunity to report Chamber
news, and do a better job or
serving our members and our
community.
Each week I will write about
upcoming events, Chamber news,
or places that we have
been/seen/or taken part in. If you
are a member of our Chamber of
Commerce, please feel free to get
us information and we will work it
into this column as best we can. I
submit this column on Monday, so


I would obviously need any event
news prior to that day. If you would
like to join the Chamber of Com-
merce and take advantage of this
and all the other services we offer,
we would love to have you. For
more information about the Cham-
ber of Commerce, stop by our
offices at 109 Central Avenue or
call, 863-983-7979.
Now, here is some of what's
going on: the Chamber of Com-
merce monthly social is tonight!
We will be at the Clewiston KOA at
5:30 pm. A nice way to unwind
after work, free food and great
company! Who can beat that? See
you there!
We are looking for a tour guide
on the Sugarland Tour bus. You
must be personable, great on the
fly, and if you have a CDL license-
even better! Contact our offices for
more information.


We are trying to make email a
part of the way we do business. If
something noteworthy happens,
or if I get a piece of news that I think
may be of use to our Chamber
members, I will shoot out a quick
email. Don't worry; they aren't
spam, forwarded jokes, or one of
those "get to know me" surveys. I
hate those too! It's always news
you can use, and I try to make them
fun to read. If you are a Chamber
member and NOT on our email list,
let us know. Email us at clewiston-
chamber@earthlink.net and ask to
be added. We'll take care of it!
If you are a fan of great music,
check out Roland Martin's Marina
this weekend. Amber Lee and
Michelle Poe are on stage begin-
ning at 9 p.m. I have seen them
three times, and am amazed every
time. They sing, they dance, they
play instruments (including fiddle,


and who doesn't like the fiddle!) a
great show.
Finally, I was at the graduation
ceremony for Clewiston High
School on Friday night. As I sat
there and looked at the smiles on
the faces of the seniors, I couldn't
help but be 18 again and sitting at
my graduation, and I found myself
smiling right along with them.
That's a feeling I hope to never for-
get. As those seniors go off to
school, or join the workforce full
time, we at the Clewiston Chamber
of Commerce would like to join the
list of people wishing them the best
and passing along our heartfelt
congratulations.
Oh yeah, my sister's birthday is
also today- Happy Birthday Shan-
non!
Thanks for reading, and we'll
seeyounextweek!

Men charged with robbery and burglary


CLEWISTON On May 12,
2006 shortly after 2 p.m. Sergeant
Carl Hilgenberg and Deputy Juan
Soto responded to The Tropical
Supermarket on Old US 27 regard-
ing a reported strong arm robbery.
The victim, Harold Ray Johnson,
age 78, said the suspect, asked for a
few dollars to buy food. When the
victim opened his wallet to give the
man some money, the man
grabbed the wallet and ran. The
victim gave chase but lost sight of
the man in the Tropical Mobile
Home Park.
Deputies obtained a description
of the man and began a search of
the neighborhood. He was located
hiding under a bed inside the


mobile home located at lot num-
ber 19, Nulls Road. Sheriff Ronnie
Lee said that because of the quick
action of the deputies, all the
money, $2,090 was recovered and
returned to the victim. Jose Manuel
Rosado age 28 of Nails Road in
Clewiston, was arrested and trans-
ported to the Hendry County Jail.
On May 16, 2006 at 6:30 a.m.,
Deputy Fernando Herrera of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
responded on the LaBelle Motel
in regards to am reported burgla-
ry. Deputy Herrera met
Guadalupe Cuellar and Jose Gon-
zalez who informed him they
were the victims of a burglary and
theft. Jose Gonzalez said an


acquaintance and another man
came to his home on Ute Street in
LaBelle at about 3:30 a.m. the
morning of May 16 with a toolbox
and asked for $20.
Mr. Gonzalez told deputies he
took the toolbox gave them the
money, and went back to bed.
Later, Guadalupe Cuellar, the
owner of the business where Mr.
Gonzalez works, called him and
told him there had had been a bur-
glary of the business. Mr. Gonzalez
said he looked at the toolbox he
had purchased and realized it was
his toolbox that he left at his place
of employment on Industrial Loop.
Mr. Gonzalez and Mr. Cuellar
then started looking around


LaBelle for the two men who had
been at Mr. Gonzalez's home.
They located them at the LaBelle
Motel. Deputy Herrera located the
stolen tools in the van operated by
one of the men and returned them
to their owners.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said Robert
Lawerence Koff, 28, of LaBelle,
and Larry Wayne Royalty, 52, of
Muse were charged with burglary
and dealing with stolen property.
Royalty was also charged with
driving on a permanently revoked
driver license and possession of
narcotic paraphernalia. Bond on
Royalty was set at $26,750 and
Koff at $18,500.

Fire danger stiltexists


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is warning residents and visi-
tors that the recent rain in some
parts of the state should not give
people a false sense sense of security.
Even though parts of Florida
received up to two inches of rain-
fall and other parts received no
more than a trace over the past
week, fire danger still remains
high throughout most of the state.
Dry air behind the recent cold
front that brought much needed
rain to parts of the state will bring
back the threat of wildfires.
"Don't let your guard down,
this fire season is not over yet,"
Mr. Bronson said. "The drought
index remains over 500 for a large
portion of the state. Fire potential
is going to be very high this week-
end due to the warm, dry weather
and lack of rainfall in the near
future."
Although some fires do start
from lightning, about 80 percent
of Florida wildfires area caused by
human carelessness.
"I urge people to be very care-
ful with any type of outdoor burn-
ing and to check with local offi-
cials and forestry offices to see if
there is a burn ban in effect in
their area and to determine
whether conditions are such that
people should not burn even if
there is no ban," Mr. Bronson
said. "Some burn ban violations
are punishable up to $500 in fines


"Don't let your guard
down, this fire season
is not over yet."
Charles H. Bronson,
Florida Agriculture and
Consumer Services
Commissioner

and the cost of suppression of any
wildfires that may result."
Several of this year's wildfires
have been a result of arson and
there are investigations under
way into the causes of certain
wildfires.
"All human-caused fires are a
threat to people's lives and prop-
erty, but arson fires are the worst
kind," Mr. Bronson said. "Florida
residents should report any wild-
fire by calling 911 or their local
Division of Forestry office. If you
see any suspicious activity near a
fire you can report it to the Arson
Alert Hotline 1-800-342-5869. Any
information that leads to the
arrest and conviction of an arson-
ist can result in the informant
receiving a reward of up to
$5,000. All callers can remain
anonymous."
Since January 1, 2,565 wild-
fires have burned 103,806 acres in
Florida. Mr. Bronson is urging
people to do their part to help pre-
vent wildfires.


The Florida Department of
Transportation has road projects

Hurricane survival guide jp


PALM BEACH COUNTY For
the first time in several years
Palm Beach County is publishing
its own hurricane guide. The
Official Palm Beach County 2006
Hurricane Survival Guide is 32
pages of information every
household in Palm Beach Coun-
ty should know. And to insure
that all county residents receive
this information, the guide will
be mailed out to every house-
hold in the county. As in the past,
the guide will also be available at
county buildings, libraries and
local social service agencies.
The county's Emergency
Management and Public Affairs
departments decided the best
way to control the hurricane
preparation message, and foster
a "culture of preparedness",
would be to deliver it directly to
residents from the county, with
no media partner in between.
The guide is designed to give
residents a step by step plan for
the upcoming hurricane season.


It begins with pre-season prepa-
ration steps then leads readers
through a hurricane watch,
warning, and landfall. If the
county is unfortunate enough to
have a storm this year, there are
pages to help residents get their
house secured, find help in their
community, or volunteer their
services to neighbors.
This year's guide is a compre-
hensive look into every aspect of
storm preparation as it relates to
residents of South Florida.. Top-
ics include: evacuations, pet
safety, boat safety, advice for
older adults, shelters, generator
safety, and even a recap of last
year's record braking season.
Also available at www.pbc-
gov. com is a printable online
version. The guide has been
printed and residents should
look for it in their mailboxes by
June 1. For more information
about the guide or where to get
one, contact Public Affairs at
(561)355-2754.

p Life jackets key to boating safety


Submitted to INI/Buckhead Ridge VFW
Buckhead Ridge VFW gave a check for $2,063 for a new K-9 unit
for Glades County after a successful 'Jail and Bail" event, Sun-
day, Apr. 9,2006. Left to right: Phyllis Fish, President of the Ladies
Auxiliary, Johnnie Patent, Post Commander, Glades County
Deputy Bryan Enderle, K-9 handler, Don South, First Vice Presi-
dent, Am vets Club, Ray Edwards, President Men's Auxiliary.


BHR VFW raises


cash for K-9 unit


The Buck Head Ridge VFW
Post 9528 held a "Jail and Bail"
and fish fry April 9, to raise funds
for a K-9 unit to serve Buckhead
Ridge and all of Glades County
with the Glades County Sheriff's
Office. The post's men's and


ladies auxiliaries, Am Vets club
and post members turned out in
support of local law enforcement
that
Sunday and enjoyed a rollick-
ing good time for a good cause. A
K-9 unit is $2,063 closer.


It's too hot! It doesn't look
cool. I know how to swim. Noth-
ing is going to happen to me.
These are just some of the many
reasons people claim that they
do not wear their life jackets. But
with approximately 700 people
drowning each year from recre-
ational boating accidents, it is
imperative to wear a life jacket at
all times while you are on the
water. Life jackets are no longer
the orange, hot and bulky vests
that are commonly associated
with water safety gear. New
innovations and developments
in life jackets have produced a
smaller, sleeker, and much more
comfortable version of a life
jacket, leaving you with no rea-
son not to WEAR IT!!
Much like a helmet to a biker
or skate boarder, life jackets are
an essential part of your boating
safety equipment and should be
worn at all times while on the
water. In 2004, the 676 recre-
ational boating fatalities, 90 per-
cent of the victims were not
wearing life jackets. The new
inflatable life jackets or Personal
Flotation Devices (PFDs) allow
the mobility and flexibility that
you need when boating, fishing,
paddling or hunting and are


much cooler in the warmer
weather. There are many differ-
ent varieties of inflatable jackets
ranging from those that inflate
instantly when you hit the water
to those that are manually inflat-
ed. All are designed to be more
comfortable and wearable than
the traditional life jacket.
Accidents can happen with
alarming speed anyplace or any-
time you are on the water.
Although many boaters keep life
jackets on their boat, very few
choose to wear one. There just
isn't time to grab a life jacket and
put it on properly before you are
in the water. If you are faced
with a strong current or unfavor-
able weather conditions, you
will not only have trouble mak-
ing sure you are safe and secure
in your life jacket, but you will be
unable to help your friends, rela-
tives, children or passengers that
have accompanied you in your
boat. Wearing your life jacket
will allow you to be safe in case
of accident and will also allow
you the ability to assist others
that may be in danger.
This year during National
Safe Boating Week, May 20 26,
2006, and throughout the boat-
ing season, remember to prac-


ha ds sw iutauppmfl.m "onefr


4m .
WARP "


-





- _


tice safe and responsible boat-
ing, always wear your life jacket
and be alert and aware while on
the water. By practicing these
simple steps you can save your
life as well as the lives of the
people boating with you. Life
jackets are now more comfort-


able and lightweight with many
new styles to fit give you the
look you want. Safe boating
saves lives, so for this year's
National Safe Boating Week and
throughout the boating season
remember to Boat Smart. Boat
Safe. WEAR IT!

Public meeting to discuss dike


By Pete Gawda

OKEECHOBEE For the last
few weeks, a report on the con-
dition of the Herbert Hoover
Dike has caused some alarm
among people living around the
lake. The report, generated by a
panel of independent state hired
experts, using U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers (COE), supplied
data draws some dire conclu-
sions.
At a public meeting to be held
tonight at 6 p.m. at the Okee-
chobee County Civic Center on
U.S. 98 N. in Okeechobee, area
residents, will be able to ask the
experts if the situation is really
that dire.
The meeting is being spon-
sored by the Okeechobee Coun-
ty Office of Emergency Manage-
ment.
Steve Duba, chief of engi-
neers for the COE's Jacksonville
district will be on hand ,to
answer questions about the
integrity of the dike.
Mr. Duba has stated in the
past that the public should be


made aware of the situation but
that he did not want to cause a
panic. He does not necessarily
agree with some of the conclu-
sions drawn by the report. He
has stated that it does not take
into account the rigorous inspec-
tion and maintenance program
of the COE.
Representing the South Flori-
da Water Management District
(SFWMD) will be Deputy Execu-
tive Director George Home, who
is in charge'of operations and
maintenance.
Officials from the City of
Okeechobee and Okeechobee
County are also expected to
attend.
The report predicts that the
dike has a 50 percent chance of


failure within the next four years.
It also predicts a 1-in-6 chance of
dike failure with each year that
passes.
Evidence in the report would
seem to indicate that the area of
greatest concern is the eastern
and southern portions of the
dike.
"With the amount of surveil-
lance and attention paid to this
lake, I don't know how we could
get into that situation (dike fail-
ure)," Steve Sullivan, a COE proj-
ects manager who oversees
maintenance of the dike, was
quoted by the Associated Press.
Mr. Sullivan added that lake
levels are reduced before hurri-
cane season. He did concede
that back-to-back storms could
hamper efforts to move water
out of the lake but the Associat-
ed Press reported that he insisted
the dike would hold.
U.S. Congressman Mark Foley
has asked for an independent
evaluation of the report. He has
gone on record as supporting
efforts to keep the lake levels

A REMINDER from Peter H. Carney,
Tax Collector, Palm Beach County ...

If you have not paid your 2005 property taxes, you should pay them by 5:00 p.m.,
Wednesday, May 31, 2006, if at all possible. Payments by mail must also be
received no later than 5:00 p.m., May 31, 2006. A postmark of payment does not
apply to delinquent taxes. Delinquent taxes must be paid by cash, money order, cer-
tified check, bank draft, US postal order or cashier's check.
Real Estate Taxes not paid by that date will have tax certificates sold on the proper-
ty. This will increase the amount due by at least ten percent (for costs and mini-
mum interest) or more depending on the interest rate bid and redemption date.
Tax certificates for the unpaid taxes are sold at a public auction via the internet to
replace budgeted, but uncollected, tax dollars for various governmental agencies in
the County.
Delinquent 2005 Tangible Personal Property Taxes must be paid by May 31, 2006,
to prevent tax warrants from being issued.
Warrants will be prepared starting June 1, 2006 and filed with the Clerk of the
Court in July. Interest and other costs will be added to the tax due.
Upon approval of the warrants in court, the property may be seized and sold.

REMEMBER, PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED BY THE TAX COLLECTOR NO
LATER THAN 5:00 P.M., WEDNESDAY, MAY 31, 2006 TO PREVENT ISSUANCE
OF A TAX SALE CERTIFICATE OR TAX WARRANT. THE POSTMARK DATE
DOES NOT SERVE AS PAYMENT DATE FOR DELINQUENT TAXES.

HRMC staff raises money
Hospital employees let their stomachs control their pocket-
books, as they claimed barbequed ribs at Hendry Regional
Medical Center last week. George Thall, Patient Financial Ser-
vices Director, coordinated fund raising with a barbeque rib
sale to benefit the Hospital Foundation. A check for $1,000
was presented to Robbie Castellanos, Foundation Chairman
and Glenda Wilson, Foundation Executive Director. Founda-
tion board members extend special thanks to the hospital
employees who contributed! The Foundation will continue to
support the hospital with fund-raising events assisted by phil-
anthropic support to enhance healthcare in Hendry County.


CLEWISTON Former Unit-
ed States Attorney General Janet
Reno will be the keynote speak-
er at a joint Democratic Execu-
tive Committee Jefferson Jack-
son dinner in Clewiston on
Friday, June 9, 2006. The Hendry
County and Glades County
Democratic Executive Commit-
tees have joined together to
bring Ms. Reno to the area.
"The upcoming election is
very important to the Florida
Democrats. Janet Reno will
deliver a positive message and
help unite the party. Although
we are small counties, if we
work together, we can see a
large Democratic victory in our
local and state races" states Ellen
Hawk Geake, chairman of the
Glades County Democratic Exec-
utive Committee. "Janet Reno
has always worked hard to help
the Democratic Party in Florida,
and we are very fortunate she
has agreed to come to Hendry


County."
Popular State Senator Dave
Aronberg will be the master of
ceremonies. Senator Aronberg is
also chairman of the Florida
Mainstream Democrats, dedicat-
ed to helping the State Democra-
tic Executive Committees work
toward the mutual goal of a 2006
victory.
The dinner will be held on Fri-
day, June 9, 2006 at the John Boy
Auditorium in Clewiston. Social
hour starting at 6:30 p.m. Tickets

Leaders prepare for 'Pioneer Class'


Leadership Hendry and
Glades Counties is a new and
exciting leadership program
designed to prepare potential
leaders to meet the challenges
facing Hendry and Glades Coun-
ties and to provide current lead-
ers an exciting learning opportu-
nity.
Participants will explore criti-
cal issues and discover priceless
resources through a series of
seminars and related activities.
Interaction with key decision
makers, experts, community
leaders and representatives to
local government assists partici-
pants to better understand the
forces that impact their busi--
ness, community, and daily lives.
Leadership Hendry and
Glades Counties believes the
cooperative effort of well-
informed citizens is the key to
preserving and enhancing the
quality of life that Hendry and
Glades County residents enjoy.
The Leadership Program is


designed to be interactive in a
seminar format. Issues will be
presented in an open in-depth
manner. The program does not
advocate any one viewpoint but
will strive to provide all sides of
the topic.
Beginning in October 2006
with an orientation "kick-off"
dinner, the program will consist
of one day a month (excluding
December 2006) for six informa-
tive education days. A June
recognition and graduation din-
ner will conclude the first "Pio-
neer Class" leadership event.
Participants in the program
will learn topics in areas such as
judicial, business and agri-busi-
ness, growth management,
health and education, civic and
cultural, and water and environ-
ment issues to gain deeper
insight into the special problems
and assets facing our counties.
If you are willing to commit to
serve the community, participate
in community activities, or have


an interest in being a key volun-
teer or community leader, then
you may be a candidate for the
"Pioneer Class."
In addition to participants for
the class, Leadership Hendry
and Glades Counties is seeking
sponsorships for this program.
Levels include Platinum for
$5,000, Gold at $2,500, Silver is
$1,000, and a Bronze sponsor-
ship is $500. Platinum, Gold, and
Silver enable the sponsor to
include one person to partici-
pate in the "Pioneer Class."
Sponsors also receive recogni-
tion in all material advertising
the program and throughout the
series of classes. Bronze mem-
bers are also identified on mate-
rial promoting the program.
To receive more information
on sponsorships, contact
Hendry County Economic Devel-
opment Council by calling,
(863)675-6007. A steering com-
mittee member may also notify
businesses and groups regarding


sponsorship. Already on board
are Lykes Bros and Alico with
Gold Sponsorships and Southern
Gardens at the Silver level.
Space is limited with only 20
participants to be selected by
committee through application
for the first ever Leadership Pro-
gram in Hendry and Glades
Counties. Tuition to participate
in the "Pioneer Class" is $500.
Scholarships are available for
half at $250 to those who prove
need. To be considered for the
"Pioneer Class" applicants may
pick-up and submit a completed
application to the Hendry Coun-
ty Economic Development
Council Office in LaBelle, 125 E.
Hickpochee Ave. (Chamber of
Commerce Building), or call
(863)675-6007 to obtain an
application form to be mailed to
you. Deadline for application
submission is Aug. 31, 2006.

CHS Spa
Congratulations are in order for
CHS Spanish Conference Team.
This year's group sponsored by
Senor Lillard placed the highest
that any team has placed since
Clewiston High School first attend-
ed in 1985.
The team placed second in Divi-
sion 2 of 4A schools in the competi-
tion, held April 20-22 at the Wynd-
ham Resort in Orlando.
Ana Arellano, Arelie Beltran,
Robert Camejo, Isaiah Escorcia,
Lorena Garcia, Edgar Gonzalez,
Julian Gonzalez, Juanita Perez,
Miriam Velasquez, and Hector Vil-
lagomez received first place out-
standing awards in impromptu
contemporaneous speaking. Luis
Garcia and Anthony Perez received
second place superior awards in
extemporaneous or impromptu
speaking.
In the Declamation of Poems
category, first place outstanding
awards went to Isaiah Escorcia,
Lorena Garcia and Edgar Gonza-
lez. Second place superior awards
went to Juanita Perez and Hector
Villagomez.
Kudos also go to Ana Arellano
who won a $300 scholarship for
her essay in a writing competition
during the conference. She
received one of 15 cash scholar-
ships out of 100 seniors competing
for the awards.
For the fifth year in a row, the
CHS Spanish Conference entry in
the drama competition won a first
place trophy. The play received a
perfect score from the judges.
The title of the play was "Don
Quixote de la Mancha." The play is
about a man named Alonzo Qui-
jano living during the times imme-
diately following the era of chivalry
in Spain.
After he has read several dozen
books about knight errantry, he
assumes the pseudo personality of
a fictitious character called Don
Quixote de la Mancha. He chooses
his own horse (a donkey) and calls
himself a knight fighting for the
honor of his Lady Dulcinea, who is
actually neighborhood woman
that Don Quixote selects as his
lady. He also selects a seeming dim
witted companion as his squire, his
neighbor, Sancho Panza. In the
long run, Sancho Panza guards
Don Quixote against his own mis-
taken self-assertions during his
adventures.
The unreality is that the times of
chivalry only existed in books and
stories during Alonzo Quijano's
days. The writer, Miguel de Cer-


Under a head coach not
named Morrell for only the second
time in 30 years, the Clewiston
Tigers seem to have adapted very
nicely as they whipped the Lake
Worth Trojans 27-7 in their Spring
Jamboree Classic.
New Tiger Head Coach Larry
Antonacci's first edition of Tigers
looked promising as they reeled off
322 yards of total offense. Star tail-
back Jamal Hubert, picked right up
where he finished last year, carry-
ing the ball 11 times for 194 yards,
including touchdown runs of 49
and 56 yards. Hubert was the
Tigers leading rusher last season
when he gained 1,030 yards rush-
ing and scored 12 touchdowns.
Back-up tailback Reggie Gray
scored the other Tiger touchdown
on a first quarter 5 yard dash, cap-
ping a 12 play drive covering 80
yards. Returning quarterback Jared
Combass played about half the
game and completed 5 of 9 passing
attempts for 58 yards.
After the contest, Antonacci indi-
cated that he saw about what he
expected in the Tiger squad.
"They've still got a lot to learn men-
tally," he said, adding "we've
installed a whole new system, new
plays and terminology and that's a a

vantes, has his character travel
throughout Spain making several
vain attempts at righting wrongs,
conquering imagined giants, and
vanquishing imaginary evil villains.
Don Quixote is finally undone
through his own imagination. He is
outdone by a friend who pretends
to become an opposing knight.
This knight, the Knight of the Mir-
rors, makes a bargain with Don
Quixote. The bargain is he will
return home to become himself if
he, Don Quixote, loses the battle.
The agreement assures Don
Quixote will keep his word, as a
true knight errant must. Don
Quixote loses the battle and resigns
himself to return home. Alonso
Quijano regains himself and his
adventurous outlook is no longer
the driving force of his life. As he
continues to honor his agreement,
his health fails. His last desire is to
see his beloved Dulcinea. Howev-
er, not even his imagined lady is
able to take him out of his spiral
toward the inevitable.
Miguel de Cervantes wrote the
story, "Don Quixote de la Mancha,"
in 1605. Last year was the 400
anniversary of its publication. CHS
observed the anniversary with their
play.
CHS students read the text,
studied the scenes and wrote an
adapted version of the story in


Spanish, producing a script for the
production of the play to present at
this year's Spanish Conference.
Characters in the play were: Luis
Garcia as Don Quixote, Edgar Gon-
zalez as Sancho Panza, Juanita


Perez as the innkeeper, Hector Vil-
lagomez as the stranger, Lorena
Garcia as the wife of Sancho Panza,
Arelie Beltran as the niece, and
Miriam Velazquez as the house-
keeper. Robert Camejo and Isaiah
Escorcia handled the props and
scenery.
With a total of 738 points,
Clewiston High School's Spanish
competition team won a second
place trophy in Division 2 of 4A
schools. They plan to display the
trophy in the high school office.
Division 2 is composed of schools
that have more than four Spanish-
speaking students on their teams.
Teams with fewer than four Span-
ish-speaking students are in Divi-
sion 1.
Mr. Lillard was extremely proud
of his team's placing this year. The
team would like to thank the CHS
faculty and staff who allowed them
to make adjustments in their class
schedules to practice during the
regular class day. In addition, they
wanted to thank Charles Obern, Sr.
for his very charitable contribution
toward the team. His donation
allowed the team to pay for their
entire hotel bill and thus .relieve
them of fundraising tasks and
allowed more time to prepare for
the competition.

eRumors vs. Reality:


The Arrival of the



Seacoast National Name


The merger of Big Lake National
Bank and Seacoast National Bank
brings with it a wealth of additional
services and benefits to customers.
Joe Mullins, Big Lake's president
for the past 18 years, knows that
a merger also brings rumors. The
following is an open letter from
Joe to Big Lake National Bank
Customers:


Joe Mullins, Regional President, Seacoast National Bank


To our customers and the communities we serve,


I've heard all the rumors, how fees will rise,
accounts will change and the phone will no
longer be answered by a person. Nothing could
be further from the truth. The integration of Big
Lake National Bank and Seacoast National Bank:
will be completed on June 5, and is a "win-win"
for Big Lake National Bank customers.
The same employees will be servicing you,
service charges will not change and loan
decisions will still be made locally.
The merger with Seacoast will only
enhance our customers' banking experience.
New services will include free online banking
and bill pay, and a Telephone Banking Center
with extended weekday and Saturday hours
where customers can call and speak with a live
banking representative. Cash management,
marine financing, investment products, trust
and estate planning and annuities are
additional services that will be available to
you. We will have an expanded network with
41 Florida offices for greater convenience. The
automated MoneyPhone, formally known as
BLISS, will also be available 24/7.
Seacoast National Bank is known for
providing big bank services with small bank
attention, which means they are able to provide
a larger variety of financial services often
offered by the large mega-banks, with the
personal service associated with smaller
community banks. It's truly the best of both
worlds for our customers.


Seacoast National Bank has a long history of
supporting community events and employee
involvement with charities. Just as you've
always been able to find Big Lake National
Bank employees on hand to help out at
community functions.
Customers will see that only positive
changes are coming their way. More services,
more flexibility, more convenience. And yes,
there will still be a live person answering
the phone.
All of us at Big Lake National Bank and
Seacoast National Bank are excited about
the opportunity to continue serving your
financial needs and look forward to seeing you
in our branches and around town. Just as
before, our bankers' hours don't stop at the
office door. We are committed to serving our
customers now more than ever.
By the way, if you have a question or
concern you'd like to share with us, call your
local Big Lake National Bank office or call me at
863-467-4663. Our lines are open and will
be answered by a live person not a machine.
Thank you for your continued trust.

ci indicated that the squad has
"good talent at the skilled positions
but needs to find some linemen."
Defensively, the Tigers looked
strong and were led by Linebacker
Carl Whitehead with 5 tackles and
an assist. Nose guard Earnest
Alvarez had 4 solo tackles and
defensive end Delvin Hughes also
had 4 solo tackles and 2 assists. The
Trojans were held to 113 yards
rushing and only41 passing.
Antonacci returned to Clewiston
where he served as Assistant to Al
Morrell for several years back in the
late 1980s. Al Morrell retired from
the head coach position after 2001
and is new finishing his final days as
Clewistons athletic director. His
son, Tommy Morrell had coached
the Tigers for the past two years but
opted to step down from the head
position and remain on the staff
coaching the defensive secondary.
Last season, Clewiston fin-
ished the season 7-4 and lost to
Chaminade in the State Class 2A
championship semi-finals. The
Tigers will resume practice in
early August and travel to Paho-
kee on August 18 for their 2006
preseason Kickoff Classic.

The Gordon River Water Quality Park in Naples, a low impact development, will provide flood
relief in surrounding neighborhoods within the Gordon River Watershed, while helping to
improve water quality in Naples Bay. The park consists of a 50-acre natural water quality
treatment facility that functions as a natural filtration system similar to the Everglades, and
is based on interconnected ponds, marshes and wetlands that remove excess nutrients from
the water. The park will combine the treatment system with trails, boardwalks, habitat, fish-

Florida farmers pay fair wages for labor


GAINESVILLE, FLA. Florida
Farm Bureau is concerned that
the current public focus on
immigration and immigration
reform may lack accurate infor-
mation about farming and farm
worker pay.
"There appears to be a per-
ception that agricultural produc-
ers are paying less than minimum
wage to foreign workers," said
Kevin Morgan, FFBF director of
agricultural policy. "In fact, the


average wage paid to farm work-
ers by Florida growers is far high-
er than the state or federal mini-
mum wage."
Florida farm workers are paid,
on average, more than $9 an
hour, according to farm labor sta-
tistics from the United States
Department of Agriculture
These statistics show that,
contrary to popOlar notions, farm
workers, are being paid a fair
wage. Field harvesters are paid at


least the state minimum wage of
$6.40, which is above the federal
minimum wage of $5.15. The
average pay of all hired workers
was $9.49 an hour, while the
average pay for agricultural serv-
ices workers was $9.20 an hour.
As the state's largest general-
interest agricultural association,
Florida Farm Bureau recognizes
that a steady supply of workers is
essential to the production
process. This supply of workers


must be available when crops are
ready for harvest.
The Florida Farm Bureau con-
tinues to work with members of
Congress to insure that any immi-
gration reform measure has a
practical guest worker program.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee












Wade Walker, a survivor of the Storm of 1928


By Twila Valentine
Edited by MaryAnn Morris
From 1977 until her death in
2003, Independent Newspapers
of Florida was privileged to have
on staff a superb writer and histo-
rian, Twila Valentine. Mrs. Valen-
tine wrote much about the histo-
ry of the people and places
around Lake Okeechobee and
about the lake itself. Together
with Okeechobee's Betty
Williamson, President of the
Okeechobee Historical Society,
she co-authored a book, now in
its second printing, "Strolling
down Country Roads in Okee-
chobee."
The following story comes
from an interview Mrs. Valentine
conducted with with Wade Walk-
er in 1988.
"Lakeport in 1926 was a small
community located some 11
miles north of Moore Haven.
When the hurricane hit, the gen-
eral store, owned by J.L. Beck,
with 19 people in its loft floated a
mile and a half. When the roof
collapsed, Beck's wife, daughter,
two grandchildren and four other
people were lost," Mr. Walker
recalled.
"Although the whole north-
west side of Lake Okeechobee
was bounded by an endless
marsh, there was a long, narrow,
sandy and wooded ridge along
the shore, cut by the Harney Pond
Canal. This ridge populated by
commercial fishermen, was
known as Big Bare Beach. With
no levee to build up a head of
water, and the sparse population,
the loss of life was small at Big
Bare Beach," he said.
It was in this area of the lake
where Okeechobee native Wade
Walker experienced the storm. At
the time, the fishermen had no
idea they were in the middle of a
hurricane.
In that 1988 interview Wade,
who was a resident of the Okee-
chobee Health Care Facility at the
time, recalled his experiences
that day of Sept. 18, 1926.
"I was fishing over this side of
Moore Haven at what they called
Istopoga Canal then. It has anoth-
er name now, the Harney Pond.
We were fishing out on the lake
about four or five miles out on
the lake. That morning we got up
and got ready to fish. I ate one
piece of egg and the boat began
to drift. The houseboat "had those
big, old wooden anchors. They'
tied the houseboats with them.
You got what they called the

anchor ropes that come up to the
posts in the inside at the corners.
We had about three big ropes
and it began to drag. So we went
over the side and began to ride
the anchors to help hold it down
until the anchors caught. It finally
did get caught. Then it got so
rough, we couldn't get overboard
to ride the anchors anymore," he
said.
"We stayed and roughed it
out. The fishing boats were tied
up to the anchors behind and a
long boat that we used to haul
the fish was tied up in front of the
houseboat, which was a barge.
We went to take care of it (the
long boat) and we finally got it


loose and it broke a hole in the
end of the houseboat where you
could knock a barrel through it.
About the time it broke loose,
here come a big, high wave. I
imagine the waves were 15 to 20
feet high. I really don't know just
how high they were, but they
were plenty high. We went back
to the other boats that was tied
behind and another couple of
waves came up and they broke
loose and there we all sat on that
houseboat with a hole in the end
of it, and the water just a coming'
in. We finally decided we'd have
to cut the hole larger and put a
tub in it. We cut the hole and fit
the tub in to stop the water
coming' in.
"We saw we were going to
have to cut the anchor ropes and
just let it drift. We didn't know
where we were going from there.
We cut the anchor ropes at each
of the corner posts at the same
time so it wouldn't turn sideways
if it had, it would have tipped over
and there's no telling what would
have happened. We did have
sense of mind enough to cut
them both at the same time.


When we cut them ropes, it
seemed like that thing just picked
up and sailed. We had one
anchor left and I crawled around
and tied it on, so I could straight-
en the boat so the hold would be
in front of us and not behind. No
telling how far we went before I
got the chance to throw that
anchor over. We drifted that night
and we drifted right up to another
houseboat that was anchored
pretty close to where we was.
They had just let theirs drag right
along and it went way back up in
the marsh. That night, we drifted
right up to the side of them.
"All day long, we'd been fight-
ing that storm and it was pretty
rough. We decided to get some-
thing to eat. We hadn't eaten all
day. We tried that, but we didn't
want much. I decided I didn't
want anything to eat and I crawled
up on one of those little bunks we
had there and I went to sleep.
"Next morning, we didn't real-
ize what we'd been through. We
went back in there (the marsh) to
get the big run boat because it
had the fish in it and the ice. It
was way back up in the marsh,


Special to INI/www.tommymarkham.com
In the early days, as you can see from this 1915 photo, fishing on Lake Okeechobee was by
brute strength and endurance; sometimes more than you thought you were going to need,
as Wade Walker tells.


Earth Talk


From the Editors of E/The
Environmental Magazine

Dear EarthTalk: How could
there ever be a "water scarcity?"
Isn't water the most plentiful
thing on Earth?
Answer: Ocean water may
cover more than 70 percent of
the Earth's surface, but thirsty
humans rely on finite supplies of
freshwater to stay alive. And with
exploding human population
growth, especially in poor coun-
tries, these finite supplies get
quickly spoken for. Further, in
places without proper sanita-
tion, water can become tainted
with any number of diseases and
parasites.
According to the World Bank,
as many as two billion people
lack adequate sanitation facili-
ties to protect them from water-
borne disease, while a billion
lack access to clean water alto-
gether. According to the United
Nations, which has declared
2005-2015 the "Water for Life"
decade, 95 percent of the
world's cities still dump raw
sewage into their water supplies.
Thus it should come as no sur-


prise to know that 80 percent of
all the health maladies in devel-
oping countries can be traced
back to unsanitary water.
Sandra Postel, author of the
1998 book, Last Oasis: Facing
Water Scarcity, predicts big
water availability problems as
populations of so-called "water-
stressed" countries jump per-
haps six fold over the next 30
years. "It raises tons of issues
about water and agriculture,
growing enough food, providing
for all the material needs that
people demand as incomes
increase, and providing drinking
water," says Ms. Postel.
Developed countries aren't
immune to freshwater problems
either. Researchers found a six-
fold increase in water use for
only a two-fold increase in popu-
lation size in the United States
since 1900. Such a trend reflects
the connection between higher
living standards and increased
water usage, and underscores
the need for more sustainable
management and use of water
supplies even in more developed
societies.
With world population


expected to pass nine billion by
mid-century, solutions to water
scarcity problems are not going
to come easy. Some have sug-
gested that technology-such as
large-scale saltwater desalina-
tion plants-could generate
more freshwater for the world to
use. But environmentalists argue
that depleting ocean water is no
answer and will only create
other big problems. In any case,
research and development into
improving desalination tech-
nologies is ongoing, especially in
Saudi Arabia, Israel and Japan.
And already an estimated 11,000
desalination plants exist in some
120 countries around the world.
Others believe that applying
market principles to water
would facilitate a more efficient
distribution of supply every-
where. Analysts at the Harvard
Middle East Water Project, for
example, advocate assigning a
monetary value to freshwater,
rather than considering it a free
natural commodity. They say
such an approach could help
mitigate the political and securi-
ty tensions caused by water
scarcity.


As individuals, we can all
reign in our own water use to
help conserve what is becoming
an ever more precious resource.
We can hold off on watering our
lawns in times of drought. And
when it does rain, we can gather
gutter water in barrels to feed
garden hoses and sprinklers. We
can turn off the faucet while we
brush our teeth or shave, and
take shorter showers. As Sandra
Postel concludes, "Doing more
with less is the first and easiest
step along the path toward water
security."

even further back. We used one
of their boats (the other house-
boat) since we didn't have any
left and we turned it around front
and anchored it to make a trail to
get out. The only way we had
water was to take a shovel and
dip some of that ice and let it
melt. We made a channel back
there and dug it out to where we
could get the boat out. It took
quite a long while to do that.
"I reckon I am lucky to be


here. We still weren't thinking
and after a couple of days, a fel-
low came and told us about all
the damage that had been done
in different places. We were
about eight to ten miles anchored
this side (northeast) of Moore
Haven. When he come to us and
told us about all the people who
had drowned in Moore Haven, I
caught the first boat out. I said,
'You can stay here, but I am
going!" he said.

Literacy program
The Clewiston Library, in
conjunction with the Harlem
Library, has recently completed
training volunteers to serve as
tutors to local adults who need
assistance in reading and writing
literacy. Trainers from Palm
Beach County presented two
intensive training workshops in
order to certify these volunteers.
These services are offered to
adults 18 and over who recog-
nize the need to read and write
with more proficiency. The ses-
sions are free to participants and
the hours are flexible, scheduled
around the needs of the individ-
uals who sign up for the pro-
gram. Each person will be
accessed by the program direc-
tor and paired with a certified
tutor. In an effort to meet the
needs of the community, the ses-
sions will take place at the
Clewiston Library, as well as in
Harlem. For additional informa-
tion, please drop by the Clewis-
ton Library or the Harlem
Library for an application. You
may also contact the Program
Director, Sue Vaughn, at the
Clewiston Library, (863) 983-
1493 or at home at (863) 983-
1365. The paperwork is also
available from Barbara Oeffner,
Clewiston Library Director (863)
983-1947 or Florida Thomas,
Harlem Library Director (863)

TechBridge Youth
training program
TechBride Youth training
services a program that is dedi-
cated to enhancing the employa-
bility and work readiness skills
of Out of School Youth between
the ages of 16 and 21 that live in
the Hendry/Glades area, is
presently accepting applications
for enrollment and is ready to
assist young adults who are
ready to deploy on the road to
success. In association with the
Clewiston Adult School and the
Clewiston Career and Develop-
ment Services Center, we offer
students the opportunity to

duct job searches and assistance
with continuance of their educa-
tional goals. For more informa-
tion contact Patrick Coleman at

Voluntary program
for pre-kindergarten
In 2002, Florida voters passed
an amendment providing for
free, voluntary pre-kindergarten
opportunities for all children
who turned four on or before
Sept. 1 and reside in the state of
Florida. The school district will
offer a 300-hour program during
the 2006 summer. The program
will run from May 31 through
July 28 from 7:50 a.m.-3:10 p.m.
The summer programs will be
offered at Eastside Elementary in
Clewiston and at Country Oaks
Elementary in LaBelle. There
will not be any transportation
provided by the district. This is a
free program for Florida fami-
lies. Research demonstrates that
high-quality preschool educa-
tion can substantially increase
children's chances of succeed-
ing in school and in life. Children
who attend high quality pre-
kindergarten programs are less
likely to be held back a grade,
less likely to need special educa-
tion and more likely to graduate
high school. If you are interested
in signing up your child for the
VPK program please go to the
United Way House at 17 Ft.
Thompson Street, LaBelle. (863)

ty remaining at Stanford, they
look forward bringing "BG" foot-

A Gold Mine in Bedroom Drawers


Newswire: People are selling their old
scrap gold that is gathering dust for
its cash value because gold prices
are so high. With the price of gold at a
25 year high (over $700.00 per ounce),
it makes sense. GoldKit.com, a
gold recycler, offers free insured
recycle kits so people may cash in their
scrap with 24 hour service and
guarantee satisfaction. They accept


broken and outdated items like
chains, charms, rings and more.
"Everyone has bits of gold just lying
around which can be turned into cash"
says Richard Zakroff, VP of
marketing. "Even old dental gold has
value." GoldKit.com processes over
10,000 recycle Kits per month.
People can get a free GoldKit
at 1-800-283-4700 or GoldKit.com.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

SHARE Food Program

helps unite community


PAHOKEE The Pahokee
Beacon Center invites communi-
ty-minded people from all back-
grounds to participate in a
monthly food distribution net-
work (SHARE) that has a greater
social impact than they will ever
find at the local super store.
While offering the same quality
foods at discounted prices,
SHARE has the almost magical
power to bring people together
for the greater purpose of devel-
oping community relationships
and breaking down barriers that
keep us apart. Instead of segre-
gating ourselves, for instance, by
race, religion, or income, SHARE
helps us all realize how much
we have in common and how
much we have to learn and
enjoy with one another.
SHARE participants, who
come from all walks of life, are
committed to perform voluntary


acts of kindness. They may, for
instance, tutor their neighbor's
child, serve meals to the home-
less or homebound, mow the
single mother's lawn, package
SHARE food, or teach English to
new immigrants. Saving money
on groceries and stretching the
family budget is the tangible
benefit that SHARE offers. There
are no income restrictions and
the more people who participate
' the greater the future savings.
Serving others brings to us the
intangible reward of a life well
lived. Please join the SHARE pro-
gram and begin to reap the ben-
efits.
SHARE is a non-profit serving
Florida communities since 1990,
is available through the Pahokee
Beacon Center. For an order
form, contact Anita Davis or
Terry Reed at the Beacon Center
(561) 924-6544.

Manatees on the move
A shy visitor stopped by the Clewiston Roland Martin
Marine on Thursday, May 18 to have lunch in 'America's
Sweetest Town'. Seeing a manatee up close is a rare
treat. Only about 3,000 manatees remain in the United
States today. They are listed as endangered by the U.S.
Fish & Wildlife Service. According to the Save the Mana-
tee Club, watercraft collisions are the number one known
cause of manatee mortality.


Doc Savvy's Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
Now that hurricane season is
right around the corner, what
can we prepare for our pets?
Thanks, Susan in West Palm
Beach.
Answer: Hey Susan, that's a
very important question! I rec-
ommend a couple of different
things to keep in your pet's emer-
gency or hurricane kit.
1. Current medical and vacci-
nation records. All of your veteri-

Have you seen 'The Da Vinci Code?'


Some are in the world but not of it


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A spectacular murder in the
Louvre Museum. A covert reli-
gious organization. And a secret
that will *;
change the
world. The Da
Vinci Code. ..', -...
On May .,
18th, the
movie version '.
opened in the-o
aters across
the country.
There are a John
number of Hicks
church groups
that have concern over the
movie and have called for a boy-
cott. I choose a different
approach. I've gone to the histo-
ry books and the Scriptures and
various other resources to
research and share some of the
blurring lines between fact and
fiction.
People love mysteries and
especially conspiracies. In many
ways, "The Da Vinci Code" is the
ultimate conspiracy theory.
There are some of the kernels of
truth in "The Da Vinci Code,"
and kernels of truth are a prereq-
uisite for any successful conspir-
acy theory. But remember, it is
fiction. In a number of ways it is
interesting fiction, but often at
the sacrifice of facts.
One of the central parts of the
Da Vinci conspiracy is revealed
through the fictional expert,
British royal historian Sir Leigh
Teabing. Presented as a wise old
scholar, Teabing reveals to cryp-


tologist Sophie Neveu that at the
Council of Nicaea in 325 A.D.,
that the majority of bishops at
Nicaea overruled the common
belief that Jesus was a mortal
prophet and adopted the doc-
trine of Jesus' divinity by a "rela-
tively close vote."
It all starts with the death of a
curator who claimed he had evi-
dence that could disprove the
deity of Christ. In addition, there
was an assertion that Jesus and
Mary Magdalene had a secret
marriage that produced a child,
perpetuating his bloodline. Fur-
thermore, Mary Magdalene's
womb, carrying Jesus' offspring,
is presented as the legendary
Holy Grail, a secret closely held
by an organization called the Pri-
ory of Sion. Sir Isaac Newton,
Botticelli, Victor Hugo, and
Leonardo Da Vinci were all cited
as members.
Although the church tried for
centuries to suppress the evi-
dence, the story is that great
thinkers and artists have planted
clues everywhere: in the archi-
tecture of cathedrals and build-
ings, as well as paintings such as
the Mona Lisa and The Last Sup-
per by Leonardo Da Vinci. Thus
the title, "The Da Vinci Code.:
Again, interesting fiction, but
phony history.
The whole history of the Prio-
ry of Sion came from a hoax and
confidence scheme it was a
fake society that never existed.
Leonardo Da Vinci was never a
part of it, and therefore would
not have planted such secret


clues in his paintings. Oops!
Second, according to
Teabing, Jesus was not regarded
as God until the Council of
Nicaea in 325 A.D., when the
real records of Jesus were
allegedly banned and destroyed.
The divinity of Jesus and the
Bible we have today emerged
out of a fourth-century power-
play by the Emperor Constan-
tine? Get real!
In reality, from the first days
of the Christian church, Jesus
was regarded as far more than a
mere man, and most of his fol-
lowers worshiped him as Lord-
the Creator of the universe, and
over time had already adopted
many of the accepted books. By.
the time of Nicea, church lead-
ers debated the legitimacy of
only a few books that we accept
today, chief among them
Hebrews and Revelation,
because their authorship
remained in doubt.
The vote on the deity of Jesus
was heavily debated, but the
decision was not close the
council concluded 318 to 2 that
Jesus and the Father were of the
same divine essence.
Bottom line, if you want to
explore a fictional conspiracy
theory about Jesus, then Dan
Brown's, "The Da Vinci Code,"
may be just the ticket for you.
But if you want to experience
the true accounts of Jesus Christ,
then Matthew, Mark, Luke, and
John will give you what the eye-
witnesses saw, heard, and
wrote.


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There was a family member
in one of the families that I knew
who was always getting into
trouble. He I
always had a
story about
why people -
were picking '
on him or
how he was
"misunder-
stood" and life
wasn't fair.
He'd get in Samuel S.
trouble, then Thomas
feel justified in
acting out because people
"owed him" for his sufferings.
One of the relatives asked how
such an attitude could be
explained.
I suggested something that I
had seen in my experience over
the years with certain blind peo-
ple. I told them of a blind man'
that I had known who lived at
home and made his way around
his house with no problem,
went to the kitchen and got him-
self a drink of water, smoked
and put his ashes in the ashtray
on the table before him, reached
for the telephone and answered
it when someone called.
If you talked to him up close,
he wasn't quite looking you in
the eye, but it might not be
something that you felt was due
to some inability. He might have
seemed a bit clumsy, or having
problems with his coordination
sometime, but otherwise you'd


never know. In reality he lived in
a world of darkness; he lived in a
totally different world than the
rest of us.
His world would come crash-
ing down if you moved his table
or put the telephone some-
where else; and then it would be
apparent that something was
wrong. If things were not really
changed, though, he could
"pass" quite well in the world
where everyone else lived.
There are people who live in
such worlds today, even if they
pass quite well in the one where
most of us live. There are such
characters in the Bible; an
unjust judge who doesn't care
about God or man and the
widow who finally wears him
down (Luke 18: ff). He is more
concerned about being nagged
and does what is right for anoth-
er reason than doing right. Even
going through the motions and
doing the right thing for the
widow doesn't really reflect
what was in his heart. He simply
doesn't live in the world where
doing right is primary.
There is a parable about an
unjust steward, a shrewd man-
ager who uses his master's
goods to provide for himself
security when he was accused
of wasting the things entrusted
to him (Luke 16:lff). The para-
ble cautions us about the use of
worldly goods: "If you have not
been trustworthy in handling
worldly wealth, who will trust
you with true riches?(v.1 1)"
The way the manager used
worldly goods revealed where
he lived, no matter what he


would have said or professed.
His messages, his dealings
wouldn't have "rung true" when
he professed to be a good citi-
zen or member of his faith com-
munity. His words would have
caused a doubt to spring up in a
corner of the mind and leave
people wondering in spite of his
"fitting in" or "being one of the
crowd."
Those with whom he dealt
detach themselves from their
true obligations and become co-
conspirators and opportunists in
spite of their "sound business"
sense. One of the great show-
men said "You can fool some of
the people some of the time, but
not all of the people all of the
time" and his adage doesn't
apply only to show business illu-
sions.
Those who may wish to live
in secret may find out they are
more out in the open than they
would have imagined. How
many times have I heard "We
knew all along!" and all of the
efforts and energies spent in
covering up could have been
devoted to walking a better
path?
People are loved for who
they are, with all of their faults
and shortcomings, and usually
those who love them know
about their inner worlds. That's
not permission to act out, to
take advantage of others, to mis-
use the gifts we have; it's the
realization that, in spite of our
limits, the image of God still can
shine through if we let it out in
the daylight and be true to our-
selves and others too.
