Ex-sugar worker to be tried


Employee accused
of embezzling

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A former U.S.
Sugar employee is charged with
one count of grand theft, a first-
degree felony. He is accused of
.embezzling more than $100,000


from the company.
Roberto Arturo Rojas, 36, of
Pembrook, surrendered himself
at the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office to Special Agent Scott Gib-
son with the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement. His bond
was set at $100,000.
The state attorney's office had
issued a warrant for his arrest in
May, after investigating the case.
According to his booking


report, Rojas is accused of the
theft of more than $100,000 from
his former employer, U.S. Sugar.
The report lists a lour-month
period, beginning in December
of last year, as the time frame of
the suspected theft.
Rojas was reportedly one of
the company's in-house
recruiters for two years. An
audit of the amounts paid to
outside recruiting firms


revealed, U.S. Sugai officials
said, that an amount of
$250,000 had been embezzled
from the company's finances.
U.S. Sugar officials reportedly
found out about the missing
money after Mr. Rojas was no
longer with the company and
referred the case to FDLE.
The state attorney's office is
now handling the case.
One of Mr. Rojas' family



members, a sister-in-law who
also worked for U.S. Sugar, is a
witness in the investigation at
this point, according to Special
Agent Gibson, who did not pro-
vide any additional information
about her.
Rojas was arraigned Aug. 14
at the courthouse in LaBelle,
where he entered a plea of not
guilty. His next scheduled court
date is Sept. 11.


City waives



monthly rent



for agency


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON During the
last city commission meeting in
Clewiston, Senior Connections
asked commissioners to con-
sider helping them in their
efforts to keep their doors open
in the community.
Christine Nolan, Executive
Director of Senior Connections,
an organization that provides
care for the elderly through
meals and homemaking and
home health care services,
asked the commission to con-
sider waiving its monthly rental
fee to help the operation con-
tinue in the area.
The city commission
approved the waiver, with lead-
ers publicly supporting the


organization that has been
experiencing considerable set-
backs in recent weeks.
Before approaching the
commission with the request,
Senior Connections has been
struggling somewhat after
learning that they have lost
their contract for state and fed-
eral funding through the Area
Agency of Aging (AAA) out of
Ft. Myers.
Representatives with AAA
said the decision to cut funding
from the program was the
result of complaints lodged
against the organization.
Senior Connections
responded by admitting to
problems, but adding that it
was not given enough time to

Suspect in



theft arrested



in LaBelle


LABELLE When Hendry
County Sheriff's Office Deputy
Michael Horne responded to a
theft complaint from Petra
Esquivel, his investigation not
only led to the recovery of the
articles stolen from her, but a
cache of stolen appliances
from Lee County as well.
Ms. Esquivel suspected that
a former tenant had stolen
three wall air conditioning
units and a propane tank with
fuel in it from a mobile home


she was renting to him.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee stated
that Deputy Home discovered
that the former tenant was
now residing at 1171 Amanda
Street in LaBelle. The three air
conditioners and the propane
tank were recovered at that
location and information
developed there led Deputies
and HCSO Criminal Investiga-
tors to 440 Clay Street in

CLEWISTON The city of
Clewiston is expected to
approve a grant from the Bill
and Melinda Gates Foundation
for the purchase of new com-
puters for the Hendry County
Library system.
The $22,000 grant will pro-
vide 15 new computers in the
county and is being adminis-
tered by the Florida Depart-
ment of State.
The grant will be used to
upgrade public access com-
puters at the public facility.
According to Library Direc-
tor Barbara Oeffner, "Certain
rules apply, one being the eco-
nomic determination of the
county."
Ms. Oeffner said the grants
are part of a larger effort by the
foundation to provide funding
for community libraries. The
Clewiston library has a special
need for the new computers.

CLEWISTON- Seneca
Vaughn and Lavita Holmes are
proving that family ties in busi-
ness can be a good thing. The
cousins have set up two busi-
nesses in the city and are looking
forward to serving area resi-
dents.
Ms. Vaughn, owner of You
Nique Shoes and Accessories
and Ms. Holmes, owner of
Quick Release Bail Bonds are
adamant that local businesses
can provide the services that
most people drive elsewhere for.
Quick Release Bail Bonds,
located at 330 W. Sugarland
Highway Unit 4, provides quick
and dependable services for
families in need, Ms. Holmes
said. Ms. Holmes has two years
of previous experience in the
industry, working for a bail bond


"This is a wonderful gift because our current
computers are very old and slow, with very old
software and are constantly breaking down."
Barbara Oeffner,
Library Director


"This is a wonderful gift
because our current comput-
ers are very old and slow, with
very old software and are con-
stantly breaking down," said
Ms. Oeffner, referring to the
computers that still run on
Windows 95, a much older
operating system than is avail-
able today.
The computers promise to
deliver faster performances,
with programs that will run on
a newer operating system. The
computers will also be
equipped with flat screen
monitors and optical mice.
The grant will pay for 15
computers for the area, with


five of the computers going to
the Clewiston Library, five to
the Harlem Library and five to
the Barron Library in LaBelle.
Ms. Oeffner said the
libraries should be purchased
and installed by Dec. 31 of this
year, with the exception of the
computers slated for Harlem
Library. Those computers will
arrive by December of next
year.
The Clewiston library offi-
cials are hoping to see their
new computers soon.
"We are planning to have
them by October 1, and they
should be installed and ready
for use within a week after,"
said Ms. Oeffner.


company out of Okeechobee,
under the direction of Shirley
Johnson.
"Ms. Johnson was a great
role model for me," said Ms.
Holmes. "She sent me to school
to become a bail bondsman,
and gave me the heads up to
open my own business."
While the business has been
in operation for only a year, Ms.
Holmes already has plans for
expansion.
"I plan to expand in the near
future, to provide more services
to the community," said Ms.
Holmes. "Free consultation serv-
ices to the families will be pro-
vided upon request and we have
Spanish speaking personnel that
are more than happy to help the
Spanish speaking community as
well," added Ms. Holmes.

Public advisory on Africanized bees newsza. com
HENDRY COUNTY African- of all bees. commr, y L nks. Individual Voices.


ized Honey Bees (AHBs) are
present and are becoming more
common in Hendry and sur-
rounding counties.
On July 11, 2005 the Florida
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services issued a Pub-
lic Advisory on Africanized
Honey Bees.
Some highlights from the advi-
sory make recommendations to
help you prepare for potential
encounters with AHBs.
AHB safety precautions:
Be attuned and alert to
buzzing in your environment this
may indicate a nest or swarm of
bees.
Use care when entering
sheds or outbuildings where bees
may nest.
Examine work areas before
using power equipment such as
lawn mowers, weed cutters, and
chain saws the noise excites
bees.
Be alert when engaged in all
outdoor activities.
Teach respect and caution


Visit with a doctor about bee
sting kits and procedures if sensi-
tive to bee stings.
Do not disturb a nest or
swarm of bees, leave the area
immediately, and contact a pest
control company or your county
extension agent.
If attacked by aggressive bees,
run as fast as possible to a safe
area. Aggressive AHBs may pur-
sue for up to one-quarter of a mile.
If stung:
Go quickly to a safe area.
Remove stingers by scraping
- use a flicking action with a finger-
nail or credit card.
Do not squeeze or the stinger
may stay in and get infected.
Apply ice.
Seek medical attention
immediately if breathing becomes
labored.
If you have any questions, need
staff training or if we can assist you
with more information, please
contact the Hendry County Exten-
sion Office at (863) 674-4092.

Hurricane Wilma, which struck on
Oct. 24,2005.
In Lake Okeechobee, the hurri-
cane's raging winds and waves
pushed floating vegetation, tussock
material, Melaleuca trees and man-
made material onto the Herbert
Hoover Dike between Clewiston
and Pahokee. Winds from the
.storm also blew items such as
refrigerators, fuel tanks, boats and
camper trailers into the waterway.
The storm had also toppled


standing dead Melaleuca trees on
tree islands along the Okeechobee
Waterway and blew some into the
waterway itself. That phase of the
debris cleanup began during the
first week of August and should be
completed by the end of October.
"This project has been a
tremendous task," said Angie
Huebner of the South Florida Oper-
ations Office in Clewiston. "I don't
think the public outside of the lake
communities realizes the scale of
this job. Before we could even start
work, the South Florida Operations
Office team had to complete
assessments, determine the
amount of debris and determine
how the work should be complet-
ed. We also worked with the Dis-
trict office to get a contract award-
ed and the contract was awarded


to Leno Transportation, Inc. from
Miami."
"It has been a pleasure working
with the contractor," said Jeremy
Crossland, who is providing over-
sight on the contract for the Corps.
"They are very responsive and are
completing their work quickly."
According to Ms. Huebner, the
contractor worked diligently to
clean one area first so that a local
festival, Belle Glades' Black Gold
Jubilee, could be held as sched-
uled. Held annually at the end of
the Florida Farmworkers' harvest
season, this festival recognizes the
blessing of the area's soil and the
contributions of hard-working agri-
cultural workers.
Any debris that could not be
legally burned was taken offsite for
disposal. Underwater inspections


enabled the location and removal
of submerged debris.
The contractor also successfully
avoided disturbing two resident
bald eagles.
Route 1 of the Okeechobee
Waterway (across the center of the
lake) was first reopened on Oct. 30,
2005, just six days after the passage
of Wilma. Route 2 of the Okee-
chobee Waterway, which skirts the
edge of the lake and is locally
known as the "rim canal," remains
closed. The Jacksonville District
survey vessel, the Florida, has com-
pleted a survey of the area and we
are awaiting the results so that
remaining underwater obstruc-
tions can be removed and that por-
tion of the route reopened to
marine traffic.


Three men arrested for illegal alligator hunting


SLAKE OKEECHOBEE Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission (FWC) officers
,arrested three men early Thurs-
'day, Aug. 17, on complaints they
illegally killed nine alligators
using a "bang stick." ,, ,


Officers using night-vision
goggles watched the men,
Michael Jameston, Craig Larson
and Thomas Tobin, all of Palm
Beach County, in the sports-
man's canal area of Lake Okee-
chobee, an. area outside Ihe des-


ignated hunting area. None of
the men had proper permits or
tags, said FWC Officer Jorge L.
Pino.
A bang stick a long pole
which fires a bullet when thrust
against the reptile's skull plate is


often used legally during alliga-
tor hunts, but the alligator first
must be secured by line or rope
to the hunter.
The alligators ranged in size
from 4 to 9 feet in length.

OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, August 24, 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.
Teachers: First I have to say that I for one could not, would not,
teach a group of kids (especially teens) all day. This is why I am not a
teacher. So for those of you who do...Thank you! I have a son who
just finished three years of middle school at CMS and I have another
who just started sixth grade. In the last few years, I have met a couple
of wonderful teachers and others who have no idea of how to deal
with teen-aged students. For example, one of my eldest son's teachers
actually took up a whole class time making an issue of why a student
had been sent to the office by another teacher (this is just one of many
incidents with this particular teacher). And this year on the third day of
school, a teacher already managed to embarrass a sixth grader over
the color ink of a pen. I think that because of the "attitude" of some of
today's teens, teachers think they have to be on the offensive. Some
teachers go down to the student's mental level and get a kick out of
humiliating students in front of peers. There is this innate need to
prove they are right and the student is wrong. For some, it's a constant
battle of wits. Do they have any idea what that feels like to an 11, 12, or
13 year old? Did these teachers forget what it's like to be that age? This
is when kids are trying to find their place. They are trying to fit in. By
humiliating them, you alienate them further away. The priority of a
teacher should be to teach, but how can they to that if they do not have
the students' respect? And, how can they have the students' respect, if
they do not earn it?


Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore

Greetings! This week's column
is going to be another quick hits
sort of thing. I will be bouncing
around from topic to topic so fas-
ten your seat belts. To begin, the
Clewiston Chamber Dinner tick-
ets are now officially on sale.
Sales are going very well and if
you want to attend, please do
stop by the chamber to purchase
your tickets. We only printed 200
tickets this year, about 40 less
than last year's event. Ticket cost
is $27.50, and the dinner is Sept.
19, beginning at 6:30 p.m. Thank
you to the Clewiston Inn for being
our host again this year.
Great News! We have filled the
tour guide position we had avail-
able! Last week I met and spoke
with a very nice lady named Ardis
Hall Hammock. We are happy to
have her on board and we look
forward to the tourist season.
Florida Gulf Coast University
and WGCU, the radio/TV station
at the school, have produced a
series of programs about the
water issues in the area. They
began airing those programs this
month, and in September will be


holding a public airing of the pro-
gram followed by a panel discus-
sion of local experts and public
comments.
Our friends at the Clewiston
Museum are hard at work prepar-
ing for their grand opening. They
are setting things up for a Sept. 21,
opening and working in the build-
ing everyday we are seeing the
progress. We are even learning to
be unofficial guides and are learn-
ing the history of Clewiston so it's
pretty neat in that regard.
For those of you that like histo-
ry, I once again urge you to attend
the chamber dinner this year. Our
keynote speaker is Hunter Lath-
am, another of our tour guides.
He is working with the museum
to put together a fascinating and
informative history of Clewiston
to be presented at the dinner.
Hunter is very entertaining and I
am probably looking forward to
that more than anything else that
night, well, except eating the
food! So, we started with the din-
ner, and have now ended the col-
umn with the dinner. Ah- the cir-
cle of life is complete. See you
next week!


CREW challenges community to help


There is still work to be done
here and we want to challenge
the community to help finish this
project! We need shingles, dry-
wall, ceiling, insulation and more.
We also need funding to help pay
the electrician and plumber. This
project made it on WINK TV.
At long last the DRD (Disaster
Response Database) is up and
running and we have entered
most of the data. The girls have
been working steady using the
computers full time just entering
this information. More than 300
cases have been entered into the
Hendry County data base and 75
clients have been entered into the
Glades county database. It took
two volunteer computer whizzes,
a board member and his friends,
our own FIND and Lutheran Dis-
aster DRD friends, and our Case
management Supervisor a lot of
time and patience and volunteer
time to get it working.
We have partnered with many
agencies to help facilitate help to
our clients. We have partnered
with United Way, UMCOR and
PDA. In addition, we have assist-
ed USDA by providing a local
place they could meet with
clients and help them qualify for
low cost loans. We have also
assisted getting information to
the Empowerment Alliance
which resulted in $10,000 of sup-
plies and services to clients. Also,
we are assisting the Rotary Club
in finding a good use for money
which will be spent on clients in
rebuilding their homes as well.
They related that they were

impressed at the homework we
had done in regards to client
resource or lack thereof. We have
helped get donated chairs (80),
cribs, strollers, diapers and other
supplies to needy families. FEMA
representatives Ortes Perez and
Keith Denning have also been
working with us. We have
worked jointly with Workforce
development, providing a place
for them to train staff. We have
also worked with United Way and
helped them in promoting their
211 program and have referred


many clients to this program.
One of our staff through the
NEG grant has been helping the
local Methodist Church with
office assistance in addition to
completing work for us. The local
Methodist Church and the local
Presbyterian Church have provid-
ed shelter to our volunteers as
well as meals. Meals have also
been provided by the Baptist
Church, local restaurants, various
church members from various
affiliations, and other volunteers.
Some problems include that


many procedures are not in
place yet, although they are
being put in place and a policy
manual has not been written,
thus it has been difficult dealing
with issues that come up with-
out this guide. We have success-
fully gotten a procedure in place
for handling volunteers and
ensuring paperwork and infor-
mation is gathered and releases
signed prior to them doing any
work. In addition, we have been
pulled at times to work on "crisis
cases" instead of focusing on
long term recovery needs. The
policies and procedures manual
has been worked on diligently
and is almost complete. Clear
boundaries were presented for
ensuring that all volunteers go
through the Volunteer Coordina-
tor and she has completed train-
ing for these procedures. Crisis
cases are being refereed to Unit-
ed Way's 211 program. The Case
Management supervisor was
hired and trained to make refer-
rals and ensure backgrounds
and complete information was
gathered on all clients before
assisting them.
We desperately need more
donation money for supplies, or
money to hire contractors and
skilled volunteers. We also need
a Construction Coordinator, and
another Spanish speaking case
manager and the funds to pay
them. An office person would be
very helpful as well. Money to
assist unregistereds would also
be a help!


Extra time for healing at Hendry Regional


HENDRY COUNTY Many in
the community are not aware of a
particular program, referred to as
the 'Swing Bed' program, offered
by Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter. When a patient is already in a
hospital, but needs additional
time for healing, 'Swing Bed' serv-
ices can be very beneficial. Here
are just a few examples of those
who would meet the required
conditions:
A patient is in the hospital
and has just received a hip or
knee replacement, and no longer
needs medical treatment, but is

the level of
activity prior to
initial hospital- David
ization. McClusky
A patient
is in the hospital for a particular ill-
ness, but while recovering needs
on-going IV antibiotics.


A patient is in the hospital,
has become too weak to go home
and still needs additional
care/rehabilitative physical thera-
py.
Although many coastal facili-
ties offer this same service or a
similar one, the convenience of
being closer to home and to fami-
ly (not to mention the cost of trav-
eling) encourages numerous
patients to transfer to HRMC, if
necessary, as participants of
'Swing Bed' care.
David McClusky, the Activities
Director of the Swing Bed pro-


gram, says "It's exciting to see
hospital patients getting out of
bed, and going to the activities
room where we can work togeth-
er on emotional, physical, spiritu-
al, social and educational needs."
Most insurance companies
will cover the expense of this pro-
gram, and Medicare will also pay
for the associated costs. To
receive additional information
regarding Swing Bed services,
please contact Marilyn Lamb, Uti-
lization Review/Social Services
Director at Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center (863) 902-4316.

Pioneer photographers kept the memories .Goo newsp.omtoownoadndprtoo
Lr tJ ---------L


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
We owe the word "photogra-
phy" to Sir John Herschel, who first
used the term in 1839, the year the
photographic process became
public and six years before Florida
became a state. The word comes
from the Greek words for light and
writing.
Paul Daguerre, a Frenchman,
announced the first photographic
process in 1839 and he named it
the Daguerreotype. George East-
man, an American is remembered
for introducing flexible film in 1884,
Four years later he introduced the
box camera, and photography
now reached a much greater num-
ber of people.
By the time the Lake Okee-
chobee area started to become set-
tled in the early 1900s, photography
had become well-established
means of recording events. The
early photographers who braved
heat, flooded lands and mosqui-
toes to take pictures of the wonder
that was Florida left a rich and
remarkable record of early life in
the Everglades, and on the lake and
the prairies.
John Kunkel Small first came to
Florida in 1901 to collect and pho-
tograph Florida's unique plant life
for the New York Botanical Gar-
den. He was a botanist and curator
first of Columbia University's
herbarium, then of the New York
Botanical Garden, a position he
held until his death in 1938. We
have not only his wonderful photo-
graphs of the plants and land-
scapes that existed before develop-
ment but also his written accounts
of his journeys in the state includ-
ing two in the Lake Okeechobee
area.


Claude C. Matlack came from
Kentucky to Miami in 1917 where
he worked as a commercial pho-
tographer until 1942, photograph-
ing everything from socialites to
Seminoles. Particularly in the 'roar-
ing twenties" he photographed
everything from "flappers" to tin-
can tourists and many Everglades
scenes.
Marion Post Wolcott was a pho-
tographer for the United States Farm
Security Administration. She took
thousands of photographs of rural
scenes across the country from the
late 1930s into the 1940s. Her photo-
graphs of the Lake Okeechobee
area record some of the scenes of
the time. Today her work is collect-
ed and displayed nationally.
These are not the only photog-
raphers of Central Florida. There
are many more. But the best photo-
graphs are so often those taken by
families to remember the lives of
the family members who came
before. We are grateful when they
sometimes share them with our
readers.

hard work definitely paid off.
We have several new teachers
here at Eastside this year. We
would like to welcome them and
wish them a great year. In first
grade, we have Margaret Howard;
from the second grade is Sheryl
Davis and Elizabeth Garcia; third
grade new teachers are Kristen
Gilliam and Jennifer Goodwin;
and in the fifth grade, Fred Hub-
bard, ESE, Susan Griffith; Art:
Megan Fisher, and our new book-
keeper is Mrs. Precious Hart. We
are so excited about having all of
the new staff joining our Eastside
family.
Parents, letters were sent
home with the students regarding
the School Advisory Council. If
you are interested in being a
member of the SAC, please fill the
form out and return it to school as
soon as possible.
Another letter was also sent
home regarding Eastside's status
with AYP (Adequate Yearly
Progress). This was the same let-
ter that was mailed out over the
summer. There are some options
on the letter, and we need you to
choose an option, sign the letter,
and return it to school as soon as
possible. If you have not received
a letter, please call the school at
(863) 983-1560, and one will be
sent home with your child.
Healthy snacks are a big thing
at Eastside this year. We do have
late lunch this year, so teachers


are permitting students to bring in
a healthy snack to help break up
the time between breakfast and
lunch. A healthy snack can be a
fruit, a granola bar, baked chips,
pretzels, animal crackers, peanut
butter crackers, etc. Please do not
send in candy or big bags of pota-
to chips for your child. We are try-
ing to keep a focus on healthy eat-
ing habits.
The third and fourth grade par-
ent meetings will be held on Tues-
day night, Aug. 22. Both meetings
will begin at 6:30 p.m. These
meetings will be very informative,
so please try to attend if possible.
The third and fourth graders
will also begin their annual candle
sales the first week in September.
For those of who like Home Interi-
or candles, locate a third or fourth
grader, from Eastside, to place
your order.
Our annual Walk-A-Thon will
be on Friday, Sept. 8. Your child
should have brought home a let-
ter and donation sheet with enve-
lope for this fund-raiser. This
fund-raiser is to benefit the Accel-
erated Reader program at East-
side. If you can volunteer your
time the day of the Walk-A-Thon,
please contact Mrs. Perry at (863)
983-1560. We need all the volun-
teers we can get.
Eastside T-shirts are still on
sale. We have a few left, so send
in money with your child to pur-
chase one. We have red and blue
ones. One shirt is $11 and two for
$21.
School t-shirts can be worn

We're looking forward to a
great year at Eastside Elementary

Blue Devils outrun Tigers, 32-8


The Pahokee Blue Devils
appear to have not missed a beat
since they won last year's Class
2B State Championship as they
easily bested Clewiston, 32-8, in
the preseason Kickoff Classic on
Thursday night at Lair Field.
The Blue Devils scored first
halfway into the first period when
quarterback Anthony Sheppard
hit Wideout Martavious Odoms in
the flats. Odoms then bobbed and
weaved his way through the Tiger
secondary for a 65-yard touch-
down run. A run attempt for two-
point conversion failed. After an
exchange of punts, the Blue Dev-
ils were pinned deep in their own
territory. Sheppard rolled out to
his right into the end zone to pass
and Pahokee was flagged for a
blocking violation that automati-
cally awarded the Tigers with a
safety.
The Tigers then showed their

only real offensive spark of the
night.
Taking the ball at their own 20,
they put together a 7 play drive to
score with 1:30 left on the clock.
The score came on a 31-yard fly
pattern pass from Quarterback
Jarred Combass to wideout John
Melton. The drive was highlighted
by a 31-yard run by Tiger tailback
Jamal Hubert. A pair of 15-yard


Blue Devil infractions also aided
the Tiger drive.
The Tigers saw their 8-6 advan-
tage wiped out in the second peri-
od when Pahokee tailback Vin-
cent Smith scampered 12 yards to
score, capping a 5-play drive from
midfield. A pass attempt for the
two-point conversion failed. As
the half was winding down, Com-
bass had a pass into the flats
picked off by Pahokee cornerback
Dwight Bentley who caught the
ball wide open and raced 66 yards
for the score.
A run attempt for the conver-
sion failed and the teams went to
halftime with the Blue Devils lead-
ing 18-8.
The second half bode no bet-
ter for the Tigers. The Blue Devils
scored on the kickoff on an elec-
trifying 91-yard kickoff return by
Janoris Jenkins. Quarterback
Sheppard found Un'Tavious Scott


on a completion for the two-point
conversion, making it 26-8 for
Pahokee. The Blue Devils closed
out the scoring in the final period
on a two-yard dive by Willie Jenk-
ins, followed by another failed
running conversion attempt.
Clewiston could only muster
72 yards total offense in the sec-
ond half, all of that coming on 20
rushing attempts. New Tiger
Head Coach Larry Antonacci indi-
cated that the Tigers still had a lot
of preparatory work to do. He
said, "We had a few flashes of
solid football during the game but
we've got to work on consistency.
We also need to work on our atti-
tudes."
The Tigers travel to Plantation
American Heritage on Saturday
night for their season opener
while the Blue Devils will enter-
tain Royal Palm Beach. Both
games are non-district contests.

Performing arts


center offers classes


CLEWISTON The Clewis-
ton Performing Arts Center,
located at 725 Central Ave will be
starting classes the first week in
September for the 2006-2007

The appropriate teacher will call

division to the studio they can
contact the Youth Center and


someone will get back with

are offered for multiple
classes/children and paying the
full year in advance.
The studio has been in opera-
tion for 5 years and took the
place of Cle%%iston Communit
Fitness Center when they
closed. The center has had up to
200 students per year and thanks
to some help from the city has
made vast improvements on our

raza, Rhona Allen, Carla Wheel-
er, and Laura Perry.


TALLAHASSEE The five-
member Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) has taken a crit-
ical step to further development of
the world's first commercial-scale
power plant fueled with crops
grown on site.
The Commissioners voted to
approve a petition for Progress
Energy Florida (Progress) to buy
energy produced by the Florida
Biomass Energy Group, LLC (Flori-
da Biomass).
Florida Biomass plans to build
and operate an electric generating
plant on a 15,000-acre farm near
Lake Okeechobee. The plant will
produce power from a tall, bam-
boo-like grass. The crop will be
grown and harvested in a continu-
ous cycle and converted into a liq-
uid fuel that will be used in a tradi-
tional combined cycle generator.
The plant will also feature ground-
breaking ways to process the
plant material, using unique har-


vesting and material-handling sys-
tems. The biomass plant is slated
to begin operation no later than
December 2009.
The plant is expected to gener-
ate 116 megawatts of power,
which would be the largest
amount of power generated by a
renewable fuel plant in the state of
Florida. Projections indicate the
energy would be slightly less
expensive than the average cost of
electric power from other sources.
The plant will also contribute to the
diversity of the fuel mix for electri-
cal generation in Florida.
The agreement between
Progress and Florida Biomass
includes flexible targets, since the
project incorporates numerous
innovative designs. Projections
for the plant indicate Progress
ratepayers could see a benefit of
$39 million in savings over a 25-
year period.

Water Resource Advisory Commis l-W. C)
Everglades Agricultural Area
Storage Reservoir A-1
Preliminary Design for the Structures
Thursday, August 24, 2006
The South Florida Water Management District will hold a WRAC Issues
Workshop meeting on Thursday, August 24, 2006. The purpose of this meeting
will be to discuss the Preliminary Design for the structures of the
Everglades Agricultural Area Storage Reservoir A-1 project, (a component of
the Acceler8 Program) and encourage and provide an opportunity for public
participation.

When: Thursday, August 24, 2006
Open House: 5:30-6:00 PM
Meeting: 6.00-7:30 PM
Where: The South Florida Water Management District
B-1 Auditorium
3301 Gun Club Road
West Palm Beach, FL 33406

The EAA Storage Reservoir A-1 project is an above-ground reservoir for water
storage, with a capacity of 190,000 acre-feet at a maximum depth of 12 feet. The
purpose of this project is to capture, move and store regulatory releases from
Lake Okeechobee, reducing the number/volume of harmful discharges to coastal
estuaries; capture, move and store agricultural stormwater runoff, reducing the
need for emergency flood control backpumping into Lake Okeechobee; improve
operational flexibility to move water within the EAA, including flow equalization
and optimization of Stormwater Treatment Area performance to further reduce
phosphorus inflows to the Everglades; improve flood protection for lands
adjacent to the Bolles Canal.

For additional information regarding this meeting, please contact Renee
DeSantis (561) 682-6844 or 242-5520 x 4075 or rdesartti(~sfwmd.qqv.

Update on IRS case against Alico


Ani -,%
OhsI N~h~r


LABELLE Alico, Inc. (NAS-
DAQ: ALCO), announced that, as
expected, it has received a thirty
day letter dated Aug. 14, from the
Internal Revenue Service pertain-
ing to ongoing audits of Alico for
the tax years 2000 through 2004.
The letter proposes changes to the
company's tax liabilities for each
of t iese tax years and requires the


company either to agree with the
changes and remit the specified
taxes and penalties, or to submit a
rebuttal within 30 days.
As previously disclosed, the
IRS has proposed several alterna-
tive theories as a basis for its argu-
ment that Alico should have
reported additional taxable
income in the years under audit.


These theories principally relate
to the formation and capitaliza-
tion of the company's agri insur-
ance subsidiary and its' tax
exempt status during the years
under audit. Under the theories
proposed, the IRS has calculated
additional taxes and penalties due
ranging from a minimum of $39.4
million dollars to a maximum of


$82.3 million dollars. The letter
does not quantify the interest on
the taxes.
The Company does not
accept the IRS position and
intends to continue to oppose
vigorously any attempt by the
IRS to impose such an assess-
ment in connection with the
agri-insurance matter.

Jews for Jesus present 'Christ in the Feast'


Is Pahokee First United
Methodist Church undergoing a
building renovation by Jews for
Jesus? Not exactly, but the church
w ill allow Jews for Jesus to come
and construct a temporary booth
or sukkah on Sunday, Sept. 10, at
11 a.m., to explain the significance
of tiie Feast of Booths or Taberna-
cle;.
Why come to church to hear
about ancient Jewish rituals?
"Maybe," says Greg Savitt,
"because those rituals served as a
backdrop for the gospel accounts
of the life story of Jesus, and
because this holiday points to Jesus
as the Messialh for Israel and for
everyone else. That's why we call
the presentation Christ in the Feast
oflabernacles."
Greg S,.vilt of Jews for Jesus will
explain liovw thie east of Taberna-
cles, or Sukkot, is a vibrant part of
Jewish life today and how the holi-
day offers a wealth of meaning for
Chi stians who value their Old Tes-
tament heritage. He will also
demonstrate how Sukkot plays into
God's worldwide plans for tomor-
row.
This sermonic demonstration
uses a variety of visual aids to show
the rich history of the feast and its


Business

Meanwhile, Seneca Vaughn,
owner of You Nique Shoes and
Accessories, located at 330 W.
Sugarland Highway Suite 11, had
other reasons why she dreamed
of owning a shoe store.
Ms. Vaughn was diagnosed
with rheumatory arthritis in 1996-
which has made it impossible for
her to wear the shoes that she sells
in her store. She enjoys it when
her customers find just the right
shoes they were looking for.
"I enjoy seeing other people be
able to wear these kinds of
shoes," said Ms. Vaughn. "This is
something that I would have loved
to do myself, but I can't."
You Unique shoes has many
varieties of modern, fashionable
shoes for women and children. It
also has a small variety of fashion
accessories.
Ms. Vaughn plans to expand to
a bigger space to allow her to
bring in more variety of shoes for
women, kids, men and expand
hei accessory inventory.
'There is no longer a need to
travel out of town for fashion-
able shoes and accessories, we
have made it convenient for the
community to shop locally for
fashion offering different dis-
counts and sales every week,"
said Ms. Vaughn.


attendant traditions. Mr. Savitt sets
up an actual sukkah or ceremonial
booth, inviting congregants to help
adorn the booth with harvest fruits
and foliage as part of the demon-
stration. He transports you to
Jerusalem in Jesus' day and sets
the stage for his claims to be the
Light of the World and the Living
Water. "This presentation is a
glimpse into the Jewish life that
Jesus lived on this earth," Mr. Savitt
says. "Anyone who loves Jesus will
feel they know Him even more inti-
mately as they learn more about
the rituals he and his disciples
observed. Seekers or skeptics who
wonder about the Jewishness of
Jesus are also very welcome."
Those who attend will see cere-
monies such as the ancient water
pouring ceremony, the waving of
the lulav and the hanging of fruit in
the temporary shelter. Adults are
encouraged to bring their children
ages seven and older.
David Brickner, executive direc-
tor of Jews for Jesus, and author of
Future Hope a Jewish Christian
look at the end of the world,
believes that this holiday points to
prophetic events. "While the Feast
of Tabernacles is a Jewish holiday,
the Scripture tells us that one day


people from all the nations of the
world will celebrate it together. I
believe that will come about when
the Messiah returns."
He went on to say that
"...regardless of one's view on that
point, Christians should not miss
out on this dramatic experience.
Jesus not only celebrated the Feast
of Tabernacles, He used it as the
occasion to reveal something
about His nature and His n mission."
Mr. Brickner, who has served
with Jews for Jesus since 1980,
was elected executive director in
1996, when he was 38. He sees
Jews for Jesus as a nineties min-
istry that is 2,000 years old. "We
began in 32 AD, give or take a year.
Jesus' first followers were Jewish
men and women and since then,
there have been some of us in
every generation." Jews for Jesus
is an evangelistic agency best
known for creative methods and
materials. Their literature deals
with contemporary themes
including anything from current
films to the new millennium.
Their "broadsides" (gospel tracts)
use humor and clever illustrations
yet have a serious message: that
Jesus is the promised Messiah for
Jews and Gentiles.


Jews for Jesus also comrnuni-
cates through original Jewish
gospel music and drama, which
they present through mobile teams
such as The Liberated Wailing Wall.
'heir comprehensive web site can
be found at www.jewsforjesus.org.
They have regular branches
throughout North America (San
Francisco, Los Angeles, Chicago,
Toronto, New York City, Washing-
ton, D.C. and Fort Lauderdale) as
well as over 70 volunteer chapters
spanning some 30 states. The
group's international branches are
headquartered in Johannesburg,
London, Paris, Odessa, Moscow,
Berlin, Sydney and Tel Aviv.
You won't have to travel that far
to see the Gospel in the Feast of
Tabernacles, as it will be coming to
First United Methodist Church in
Pahokee, on Sunday, Sept. 10, at 11
a.m. There is no admission charge.
Greg Savitt will be available after
the presentation to answer ques-
tions. Pahokee FUMC Pastor, Rev.
David Reeves, invites everyone to
attend this exciting and informative
presentation. For more informa-
tion, contact the church at (561)
924-7241.

Pastor Corley celebrates 10 years Area Church News in Brief


Aug. 22, 2006 marked the ten-
year anniversary of Pastor Ed
Corley's service as the senior
pastor of Evangel Assembly of
God church in Clewiston. Pastor
Corley and his wife, Kathy,
arrived in Clewiston in August of
1996 and have never looked
back. Following the lead of the
Lord's voice, this dedicated and
devoted couple has brought
hope and love to the lives of
many Clewiston families.
Pastor Corley has always
been known for his straightfor-
ward, truthful teaching and
preaching of God's word. Under
his ministry, there have been
numerous people who have
made Jesus the Lord and Savior
of their lives.
As devoted as Pastor Corley is
to his congregation, he is not one
who believes that a church body
should stay strictly within the
walls of its sanctuary. In fact, for
Pastor Corley, the opposite is true.
He is a pastor who feels a great
desire to minister, not just to his
flock, but to the entire communi-
ty. Under Pastor Corley's leader-


v Q


INI/Evangel Assembly of God
Pastor and Mrs. Ed Corley.
ship Evangel Church has begun
several community outreach min-
istries, which are still thriving
today:
Loaves and Fishes A bi-
weekly food distribution ministry
to help families, regardless of
their race, religion, or creed, who
are in need or perhaps, are just
temporarily down on their luck.
Emergency needs are met on a


regular basis for people who may
walk into the Church office need-
ing urgent help.
Care Ministry/Evangelism
Team A bi-weekly ministry in
which loving members of Evangel
go out to people's homes to min-
ister to emotional, mental, and
spiritual needs.
Nursing Home Ministry A
bi-weekly ministry in which
teams of caring Christians from
Evangel visit our local nursing
home to share God's love with
those who are in the later years of
their lives.
Because of his great love for
young people, Pastor Corley has
also held Kid Crusades, hosted
field trips for our local elementary
schools, as well as hosting Bac-
calaureate services for Clewiston
High School for several years.
These ten years have not
been without challenges. In
October 2005, Hurricane Wilma
caused one million dollars in
damages to the facilities of Evan-
gel Church. If not for Pastor's
vision of building the ten thou-
sand square foot Outreach Cen-


ter two years ago, Evangel
Church would have been with-
out a place to worship. Thank-
fully, because of the keen vision,
wisdom, and energy of Pastor
Corley and the staff of Evangel
Church who helped these past
months, Evangel Church was
able to move back into its' sanc-
tuary three weeks ago.
The Congregation of Evangel
Church is presenting a Decade of
Dedication Celebration in honor
of Pastor Corley and his wife,
Kathy, because of their guidance
and great leadership over this past
decade. On Sunday, Aug. 27,
Evangel Church will be holding a
special celebration service led by
Pastor Corley's son, Pastor Gary
Corley. Immediately following
this service, there will be a large
luncheon held in Evangel's Out-
reach Center, where many pre-
sentations will be made.
Evangel Church says a great
"THANK YOU" to both Pastor Ed
Corley and his wife, Kathy, for
their ten years of dedication and
devotion.


City of Tyre has had a turbulent history


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The recent war in Lebanon
brought the world's attention to
places with Biblical roots. One of
the places in the news was the
city of Tyre, a good hundred miles
north-of Jerusalem. Jesus really
got around and on foot too! The
city had a turbulent history with
all sorts of struggles and all sorts
of intrigues; being captured and
being freed, being under one
ruler or another and trying to live
in peace among their neighbors.
It seems that one day, Jesus left
the debates with the Pharisees
and the teachers and took a long,
long walk to Tyre (Mark 6:45 -
7:34). In spite of getting away
from it all, and not wanting any-
one to know where He was, the
word got out. Soon, a Greek
woman who was born in Syrian
Phoenicia (Mark 7:26) comes on
the scene and asks for help for her
sick daughter. The reply she
receives is that "it is not right to
take the children's bread and toss
it to their dogs" (verse 27), imply-


ing that she has no right to make
any claim on the gifts set aside for
others. She is a mother who loves


her daughter
appeal that
gets the answer
she seeks; "Yes
Lord," she
replied, "but
even the dogs
under the table
eat the chil-
dren's
crumbs."
These are the
words that get
her what she


and makes an



-J





Samuel S.
Thomas


sought and she went home to find
her daughter healed.
Her appeal is not by having a
tantrum or by demanding her
rights or by calling names, or say-
ing she was somehow treated
unfairly, but by an appeal to her
place in God's plan. God had
ordered things in such a way that
even the dogs were to be fed, no
matter that they didn't have a
place at the table. Her reply is to
a deeper level; everyone knows
the tragedy of an ill child and that
is more a part of our understand-


ing than who sits where or who
has a right to what.
What moves us is what we
share in common from the things
we all know about; the beauty of
a new life in a family, the special
relationships we have with those
we love, the tragedy of those who
are handicapped in some way,
the joy of seeing someone fulfilled
in life as a new career begins.
The tragedies I see are still visi-
ble in Tyre today. It is about a
country that has been bombed
and seriously damaged by a war.
Everyone is pointing fingers and
people are wringing their hands
about will the peace hold. The
pictures that I see, though, are
faces of families with no homes
or parents crying over the losses
of loved ones, or people who
have lost everything they've
owned and must start over. They
are the descendants of the
woman who appealed to Jesus
and called to the common bonds
of life that people always have
shared, continue to share today
and always will share.
Paul appeals to the Romans "I
urge you, brothers, to watch out


for those who cause divisions and
put obstacles in your way that are
contrary to the teaching you have
learned (Romans 16:17)" when
the world was full of division, and
when people are too centered on
their differences rather than their
common humanity. A mother
with a sick child knows what is
more important and is not wor-
ried about who sits where or who
is under the table or sitting at it.
The lesson that came from
Tyre two thousand years ago is
still coming from there today. It is
a message that I see in my min-
istry when people are worried
about smaller things that have
become great and lose the
greater things by their distrac-
tions with small matters. A Greek
woman in a Syrian-Phoenician
community speaks to one from
Bethlehem in Judea and touches
Him with her plea and call to go
beyond what is going on around
them. He will respond to our call.
too when we see that we all ha\ e
a place in God's plan and work t:o
be at one in our common hem-
itage as God's people. -


Following the master a lesson to learn


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Two and a half years ago Pep-
per came into our lives. I walked
out of Wal-Mart and this warm
fuzzy ball wrapped herself around
my ankle. I
picked her up
and melted as
she nestled
into my chest. I
took her back
to the cart
where they
were giving the
puppies away,
and told my John
friend, "I can't Hicks
keep her,
Kathywould kill me if I brought a
puppy home."
Long story short, I went
home and placed the pup in my
wife"s laj. Knowing her love of
animals would win out over
common sense, Pepper became
part of our family.
We have learned some inter-
esting things about this dog
(besides the fact that she loved to


chew on the toes of Kathy's shoes
during her first year with us She
cost me the price of several pairs
of shoes, but that's another story!)
Pepper sticks to me like glue.
Wherever I go, Pepper wants to
go, whether I want her to or not.
We go to the living room, she fol-
lows. We go to the bedroom, so
does she. Go to the kitchen, she's
right there. If I want to take a bath
in private, I need to shut the door,
or Pepper would be right there.
Even then, she waits at the door.
Sometimes Kathy wants to say
to her, "Hey, listen, leave me
alone. You don't have to follow
me everywhere!" But one look at
those loving eyes and smiling face
and it's irresistible. We under-
stand the dog's value system. Pep-
per doesn't care where she goes
or where she is, she.just wants to
be where her master is.
I've learned a lot about being a
disciple from watching our dog.
You see, Pepper's big issue is
basic: "Where is my master right
now?" The dog made her deci-
sion where she'll be wherever


her master is. So it is with a disci-
ple of Jesus. Where is my Master
on this issue? I don't care where it
takes me. I don't care what it
costs me. I just want to be where
my Master is.
In John 12:26, Jesus says,
"Whoever serves Me must follow
Me; and where I am My servant
also will be." Jesus is talking about
the central response of a disciple.
"Find out where my master is
going and I'm going to go there,
too." This kind of allegiance to the
Master's direction is what being a
disciple is all about. It's not just
about having the right beliefs. It's
not just about hanging around with
the right people. We want to be
where our master is as He wants to
move deeper into our lives. As He
moves in that place where we
work, where we play, and where
we serve, let us follow His lead
there as well. Let us follow where
our Master is going and contribute
to what He's trying to do.
The key question we need to
ask is, "Where does Jesus seem to
be going?" When the board


meets, when the committee
meets, when we are on our kne-r
praying, we should not just sai.,
"Lord, this is what we want to do:"
We should ask, "Lord, where are
You going in this ministry?" When
we go with His flow, it becomes
an exciting, dynamic process.
As an added note, remember
that we need to stay flexible
because we never know where
the Master's going to go next. But
then that's how that dog follow s
its master! "Wherever my master
is, I will be there, no matter where
it takes me!"

Vegetable gardening in South Central Florida


By Ed Ayen
Florida Yards & Neighborhood
This is another in a series of arti-
cles written about the new area
program called Florida Yards &
Neighborhoods.
Did the Brown Spot or Chinch
Bugs take out part of your lawn this
summer? If it is a nice sunny area
maybe it is time to plant some veg-
etables instead of more grass. Here
in south central Florida our veg-
etable planting season is the
reverse of our northern neighbors.
Now is the time to plant warm sea-
son crops such as cantaloupe, col-
lard, sweet corn, cucumber, egg-
plant, beans, okra, pepper,
pumpkin, southern peas, squash,
tomato and watermelon. It is also a
good time to plant many of the
herbs. In this area raised beds are a
good choice and if space is limited
you may wish to consider contain-
er gardening. The raised beds allow
you to use superior soil with better
drainage and moisture retention.
Make the frames no wider than 4
feet so you can reach inside with-
out stepping on soil. Fill the bed
with a mix of 70 percent sand and
30 percent top soil or muck and
amend with compost. If you only
use top soil or muck drainage will
not be adequate. If you like you can
use store bought potting mix
instead of the 70-30 mix. It is a good
idea to check the pH or acidity of
your soil by taking a sample to your
county extension office as veggies
like a pH in the range of 5.5-6.5.
Remember to have a source of
water handy for irrigation; drip or
trickle irrigation is encouraged as a
method for conserving water.
Organic vegetable gardening
is becoming very popular and dif-
fers from regular gardening main-
ly in the areas of fertilization and
pesticides. By using natural and
organic materials and methods
you can avoid using synthetic
chemicals that may be detrimen-

tal to health and environment. If
animal manures are available
they are a good source of nutri-
ents. Work in about 25 pounds
per 100 square feet of cow, horse
or hog manure before planting.
For weed control try mulch, such
as pine straw, leaves or other
material, that will keep weeds
from growing.
Grow pest resistant varieties if
available to help reduce losses
without use of chemical pesti-
cides. There are some naturally
occurring materials available that
can be used as pesticides such as
diatomaceous earth, and
pyrethrin. Insecticidal soaps may


work well on some insects under
average conditions.
If you use chemical fertilizer
use about two pounds per 100
sq. feet of a 15-0-15 or similar low
phosphorous type as phospho-
rous occurs naturally in our soils.
If applying synthetic chemical
pesticides always use recom-
mended products and follow
label instructions.
Contact your county extension
office for further information on
gardening in Florida and enjoy
those great fresh vegetables.

borhoods program is being

through the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.

AP/UF/IFAS/Marisol Amador
UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, Associate Dean for Research Mary Duryea
and Ed Gilman, a UF urban horticulture professor, look over their recently published booklet
that gives tips on how to prevent storm damage to urban trees. The booklet is free and avail-
able on the Internet or at any county extension office.

Protect your trees from storms


By Mickie Anderson
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE University of
Florida researchers have released a
booklet that's full of practical
advice about how to protect your
trees from storm damage and
what to do if they're damaged
despite your best efforts.
"We wanted to help homeown-
ers with their trees. We've learned a
lot about trees in our studies of the
last 10 hurricanes and hope that
our tips will help make urban trees
more healthy and wind resistant,"
said Mary Duryea, associate dean
for research at UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
The booklet answers everything
from when and how to prune, to
choosing the sturdiest trees for
your part of the state to knowing
when a damaged tree needs expert
help.
The 12-page, color booklet -
called "Assessing damage and
restoring trees after a hurri-
cane"-is available at any of the
state's 67 county extension
offices, Florida Division of
Forestry offices or can be down-
loaded at the Florida Cooperative
Extension Service's Web site:
http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/EP291.
The publication begins with the
worst-case scenario of a hurri-
cane's aftermath and how to safely


remove felled trees, then moves on
to how to distinguish storm-dam-
aged trees that should be removed
from those that have a chance for
survival. It gives detailed informa-
tion on pruning, specialized advice
on pine trees and palms, and the
final section is on prevention: how
to choose the right trees for your
yard, how many to plant and
where to plant them.
UF/IFAS researchers have been
tracking tree damage since Hurri-
cane Andrew in 1992 and much of
the advice in the booklet stems
from that work.
Duryea, an urban forestry
expert, says laurel oaks are among
the worst at withstanding hurri-
cane-force winds.
"I've measured four hurricanes
in the Pensacola area," she said,
"and in every one of them, laurel
oaks have wreaked havoc."
Laurel oaks that are more than
50 years old are most likely to fall,
she said. Pecan trees and sand
pines don't hold up well in high
winds, either.
A Spanish-language version of
the booklet is expected to be
released Sept. 15.
A $500,000 grant from the Flori-
da Division of Forestry and U,S.D.A.
Forest Service's southern region
paid for the booklets, the first com-
ponent of an Urban Forest Recov-
ery Program. Fourteen more publi-


cations will be made available to
the public via the Internet.
Ed Gilman, a UF urban horticul-
ture professor, said that while the
booklet is chock-full of valuable
information, he hopes the section
on prevention will hit home.
"I think, in a sense, the preven-
tion or reduction of problems
through proper tree care especial-
ly pruning is the take home, long-
term message," he said. "Let's try
to reduce the damage next time."
Here are a few of the booklet's
tips:
Don't wait until the last
minute to think about preparing
your trees for storms.
Plant wind-resistant species.
The booklet has lists of recom-
mended trees for North and South
Florida.
Know how old your trees are.
Different species have different life
spans. For example, laurel oak only
lives about 50 years, and becomes
increasingly susceptible to storm
damage and disease the older it
gets.
Give trees enough soil space
so they can take root and be firmly
anchored.
Properly pruned trees survive
high winds better.
Replant trees in groups when
possible. Groups do better than a
lone tree that's fully exposed to the
wind.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
South Shore Water Association, Inc
Has Levels of Haloacetlc Acids Above Drinkng Water Standards
Our water system recently violated a drinking water standard. Although this is not
an emergency, as our customers, you have a ight to know what happened, what
you should do, and what we are doing to correct this situation.
We routinely monitor for the presence of drinking water contaminants. Testing re-
suts we received for quarter ending June 2006 show that our system exceeds the
standard or maximum contaminant level (MCL), for Haloacetic Acids (HAA5s).
The current running annual average HAAS Concentration is 96.44 micrograms per
liter (ug/L). Rule 62-550, Forida Administrative Code, identifies the MCL for
HAAs as 60 ugiL. The running average of our previous results for HAA5s has
been significantly below the MCL at 37.69 ugL.
What should I do?
You do not need to use an alterneae (e.g., bottled) water supply. However, i
you have specific health concerns, consult your doctor.
What does this mean?
This Is not an immediate risk If it had been, you would have been notified immedi-
atel. Some people who drink water caning haloacetic acids HAA5 in excess
of the MCL over many years may have an increased risk of cancer. Recent re-
search results suggest a possible connection between high levels of HAASs and
pregnancy problems. Therefore, women of childbearing age may wish to seek al-
temative water sources.
What happened? What Is being done?
We purchase our water from the Clewiston Water Treatment Plant their results are
in compliance with the rule. Their current annual running average Is 22.10 ug/L.
In April 2006 our laboratory analysis measured our HAASs at 285.90 and the Cle-
wiston Water Treatment Plant results were 28.6 ug/l sampled eust four days alter
South Shore Water Association. Our current result for the third quarter taking Au-
gust 3,2006 is 23.66 ug/L.
South Shore Water Association feels that the high results recorded in April 2006 is
an abnormality and s not founded by our previous results or our current test re-
sults. Due to the high result recorded in Aprl 2006, South Shore Water Associa-
tion will e out of compliance for the next three quarters the rule requires that
notification s either mall* or delivered by hand upon each occurrence.
FOR MORE INFORMATION PLEASE CONTACT: Chris Carroll at 863-83-2323
OR CONTACT THE DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTIONPOTABLE
WATER COMPLIANCE/ENFORCEMENT SECTION AT 239-332-6975.
Please share this information with all the other people who drink this water espe-
cially those who may not have received this notice directly (for example people in
apartments, trailer parks, campgrounds and businesses). You can do this by

Dear Doc Savvy,
Question: Hi, my name is
Nancy and I have a pet ferret
named Sissy. Sissy is about four
years old and I have been notic-
ing lately that she is not herself.


She is very sluggish, her appetite
is down and her urine looks a bit
dark at times. I know I have to
take her to the veterinarian, but I
was wondering if you had any
insight as to what her problem


might be?
Thanks Doc
Answer: Hey Nancy! Yes,
please make sure that you take
Sissy to the vet ASAP. Ferrets can
have various problems like


tumors and cancers, bladder
infections, kidney problems, uri-
nary bladder stones...And many
other conditions. The mention of
the dark colored urine does
worry me where I am suspicious


of a kidnele or urinary problem.
Sluggish behavior and a poor
appetite are indications that she
feels rather uncomfortable.
Don't wait another minute
Nancy, and get Sissy to her doc-


tor immediately!
Good luck, Doc Savvy.
Be sure to e-mail your pet
questions to DocSavvy@aol.com
and check out your answers
weekly in The Pet Corner.

How are we doing?
Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.



We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)



Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and

tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of

what happens in our community IS good.)


How are we doing?


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