15 years of the Big '0' Hike


A few days left
before the annual
walk finishes

By Nicole Curry
LAKE OKEECHOBEE For
fifteen years, people have been
waking up at the crack of dawn
to walk along the unique trail
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Big "O" Hike first started


in 1992 and has since then been
known for being held around
Thanksgiving time. The hike,
which is 109 miles long, attracts
everyone from locals to Califor-
nia residents and other tourists
interested in witnessing nature's
sights first-hand.
For each of the nine days of
the hike, hikers can walk up to
14.7 miles some may want to
walk less.
The hike starts at sunrise and
walkers are encouraged to


bring supplies with them to get
the chance to view nature
unveiled as the day carries on.
The trek usually lasts until
noon each day.
For those making the hike
every year, the activity becomes
more than just walking it's a
chance to catch up with old
friends.
Many of the hikers have par-
ticipated in this event from the
very beginning, regulars who
seem to have fallen in love with

about preserving the nature and

Local bank offers tips to avoid identity theft


CLEWISTON First Bank of
Clewiston is offering tips to help
consumers avoid becoming vic-
tims of identity theft. Identity theft is
one of the fastest growing types of
fraud with up to 500,000 cases each
year. The tips are part of First Bank's
continuing efforts to promote
financial education and safety.
Identity theft, also called
"account takeover fraud," involves
criminals stealing individuals' per-
sonal credit information and
assuming their identities by apply-
ing for credit in their names, run-
ning up huge bills, stiffing creditors
and generally wrecking victims'
credit histories.
"Vigilant monitoring of your
personal information and knowing


who you are doing business with
are two of the best ways to avoid
becoming a victim," said Miller
Couse, president, First Bank,
Clewiston. "Understanding how
criminals get access to your per-
sonal information is your first line
of defense." For more information
about identity theft, visit First
Bank's web site at
www.firstlbank.net.
Consumers can avoid becom-
ing victims by following some sim-
ple tips from the American Bankers
Association.
Do not give your Social Securi-
ty number or other personal credit
information about yourself to any-
one who calls you. Criminals use
this information to open new


charge accounts posing as you.
Tear up receipts, bank state-
ments and unused credit card
offers before throwing them away.
Criminals can collect bits of infor-
mation about you by going
through your trash.
Watch for missing".mail and
do not mail bills from your own
mailbox with the flag up. An identi-
ty thief may steal your mail and file
a change of address form with your
credit card company or the U.S.
Postal Service.
Review your monthly
accounts regularly for any unautho-
rized charges.
Order copies of your credit
report once a year to ensure
accuracy.


When conducting business
online, make sure your browser's
padlock or key icon is active.
Do not open e-mail from
unknown sources and use virus
detection software.
* 9 Protect your PIN's and pass-
Wdids and change them frequently.
Report any suspected fraud to
your bank, credit card companies
and the fraud units of the three
credit reporting agencies immedi-
ately. The fraud unit numbers are:
Trans Union (800) 680-7289;
Experian (888) 397-3742; and
Equifax (800) 525-6285.

regarding identity theft and phish-
ing, please call First Bank at (863)

U.S. Sugar employees

honored for their service


CLEWISTON More than
100 U.S. Sugar employees were
honored at a luncheon com-
memorating 25 years or more
of employment with the com-
pany. The employees were
treated to a special buffet lunch
at the Clewiston Inn and recog-
nized individually by President
and CEO Robert H. Buker, Jr.
Each employee received a 14k
gold jeweled U.S. Sugar pin
commemorating his/her years
of service.
"Working men and women
like these are the foundation of
this country and certainly of
our Company. Seeing all of you
here gives me a renewed sense
of faith in our future. We are
proud to honor you today," Mr.
Buker said.
Award pins were given to
those with 25, 30, 35, 40 and 45
years of service. The group rep-
resented more than 3,300 years
of work with U.S. Sugar. A spe-
cial presentation was given to
Cobb P Lyman in recognition
of more than 45 years of dedi-
cated service. He received a
service pin adorned with a
ruby, sapphire and four dia-
monds. The number of jewels
is commensurate with an indi-
vidual's years of employment.
Mr. Lyman began his career
at U.S. Sugar in October of
1959, working in the Drainage
department (known today as
Field Construction) as a helper


where he loaded dynamite for
construction projects. After a
few years, he transferred to the
Agriculture department, where
he did a little bit of everything
during harvest and plant activi-
ties. Since 1979, he has worked
primarily as a road grader oper-
ator. His favorite job assign-
ments include grading the pad
for the southern-most sugar
warehouse, grading the cap on
Cane Field and the new prac-
tice field for the Clewiston High
School football team, and grad-
ing the Hendry County Fair
Grounds.
According to Mr. Lyman, he
was blessed to have come to
work at U.S. Sugar and has
enjoyed his career with the
company. He lived on the farms
and raised his family there.
Lyman is an equipment spe-
cialist for U.S. Sugar's Farm
Area 2.
In addition to Mr. Lyman's
45 years of service, nine
employees were honored for
more than 40 years of service:
Edward Brown, Freddie Burtis,
Johnnie L. Coleman, Andrew
Guy, Kenneth "Butch" Jones,
Frank Moody, Reuben Molton,
James H. Rhodes, Jr., and
Claudius A. Smith. The 40-year
pins contained a ruby, sapphire
and three diamonds.
"We hope to make this an
annual event," said Fred Dyess,
Jr., Human Resources Manager.

Palm Beach Supervisor of Elections visits school


BELLE GLADE On Oct. 24,
the Supervisor of Elections, Dr.
Arthur Anderson, visited the
campus at Lake Shore Middle
School in Belle Glade. Mr. Floyd
Henry, Jr., principal introduced
Dr. Anderson to the seventh
grade Civics Advance students by
reminding the students of how
fortunate we are in America to
have "a voice in our democratic
system through voting."
Mr. Hendry also mentioned
the important role of Dr. Ander-


son, which is to ensure that the
voting process is carried out
smoothly and fairly in the
upcoming local election.
The students applauded as Dr.
Anderson greeted the anxiously
awaiting seventh grade students.
In Palm Beach County, the civics
curriculum included the study of
the "Meaning of Citizenship" and
the "Rights, Duties, and Respon-
sibility."
Dr. Anderson briefly outlined
his background including being a


school board member for the
county.
He discussed the history of
voting in our country and the
importance of registering to vote.
After speaking to the students
about the election process and
his role, he had a question and
answer session with the students
who were eager to participate.
Leroy Scott asked if a person
with a criminal record could
vote. Dr. Anderson responded by
saying that a person with a crimi-


nal record cannot vote until their
voting rights are restored.
Dr. Anderson ended his visit
by telling the students to have
their parents and or guardians
participate in early voting or dur-
ing the next election.
SDr. Anderson also left the stu-
dents with good bags consisting
of registration cards, coloring
books, and pencils. This event
was orchestrated by the Civics
Advance teachers, Ms. Janvier
and Ms. Cooper.

Mr. Parker cites an industry-
wide need for qualified engi-
neers, field managers, equipment
operators, technicians, and sur-
veyors. With Florida's rapid
growth, thousands of new jobs
are expected to be created
throughout the state by 2010.
That future workforce is one
reason why Kelly Tractor Co. has
been a sponsor of Construction
Career Days in each of its five years
in South Florida. A full-service
CAT equipment dealer with loca-
tions in Miami-Dade, Broward, and
Palm Beach counties, the compa-
r'y understands that today's stu-

S"If thiswerejust a jbfair, there
would be less desire to partici-
pate," said Paul A. Laya, Kelly Trac-


tor marketing manager. "But
we've seen how the perception of
our industry changes between
arrival and departure. Once stu-
dents see and sample all the differ-
ent options we have to offer, they
realize there are viable careers
available after graduation."

Power lines may be kept out of Everglades


WEST PALM BEACH New
.,power transmission lines origi-
nally planned to run for approxi-
mately 8 miles through Ever-
,glades National Park might now
,be located outside the Park
boundaries, thanks to a utility
,easement authorized today by
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District. The plan would
require Florida Power & Light
;Company (FP&L), which cur-
rently owns a utility easement
one and three-quarter miles


inside the Park, to release their
interest. The new easement, to
be granted to the United States in
order to protect the Park, will
then be conveyed to FP&L. The
easement is located on District
right-of-way lands in Miami-Dade
County near Tamiami Trail and
along the L-31 north canal.
"The District's easement offer is
very much appreciated," said Dan
Kimball, Superintendent of Ever-
glades National Park. "High-power
transmission lines are best sited


outside the Park and away from
Everglades wetlands. It may allow
FP&L to continue with their
upgrading work without directly
impacting the national park. "Mr.
Kimball added, "This innovative
solution is just another example of
the partnership between the South
Florida Water Management District
and the U.S. Department of the
Interior in restoring the Everglades
and protecting the Park."
The resolution by the District's
Governing Board assigns a "per-


petual access and utility ease-
ment" on a 330-feet-wide tract
within the L-31N right-of-way and
on adjoining District lands north of
Tamiami Trail and south of the G-
211 structure. These additional
tracts are needed to connect with
an existing Florida Power & Light
corridor. The resolution is subject
to an agreement by all parties,
which includes Florida Power &
Light's releasing its existing land
interests within the Park. Other
than recording fees, no costs are


required from the Park for this
easement.
"Interagency cooperation again
proves key to Everglades restora-
tion," said Carol Ann Wehle, Exec-
utive Director of the South Florida
Water Management District. "Even
a basic issue like this, a utility ease-
ment, requires us to communi-
cate, share our resources and keep
the primary mission in mind.
America's Everglades continue to
be in good hands."


FWC seeks input on upcoming manatee plan


Those loveable sea cows,
officially known as Florida man-
eatees, are migrating, traveling
from the north to the warmer
waters to the south.
SThey instinctively know win-
ter is' just around the corner,
'much the same as migratory
birds and Florida's snowbirds
know that 01' Man Winter is
'knocking on the door.
The state's official marine
mammal is highlighted during
November, also known as Mana-
tee Awareness Month, and the
*Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) is
asking for thle public's assistance
'in protecting the sea cow for
-future generations.
The state's first Manatee Man-
*agement Plan, released Thurs-
day, is available online at
MyFWC.com, and FWC officials
are asking the public to share
thoughts and views.
"The first draft incorporated
extensive' public input," said
.Kipp Frohlich, leader of FWC's
:Imperiled Species Management
Section. "We are looking to the
'people of Florida to let us know
if it meets their expectations for
manatee recovery and manage-
'Irent."


Dr. John E. Reynolds III, Mote
Marine manatee research pro-
gram manager and chairman of
the U.S. Marine Mammal Com-
mission, said manatee counts
have increased in recent years.
Since the 1980s, Dr. Reynolds
has been counting manatees
which congregate around
power plants. Mote Marine staff
have been conducting aerial sur-
veys since 1985. FWC, along
with several other entities, also
conducts counts and aerial sur-
veys.
Those surveys "document
habitat use patterns, seasonal
distribution and relative abun-
dance of manatees," according
to information on Mote's Web
site, www.mote.org.
Keeping track of the number
of Florida manatees is vitally
important so scientists know
whether to classify the manatee
as endangered or threatened.
"The fact that the manatee
does not merit classification as
endangered is a tribute to the
commitment made to manatee
conservation during the past 30
years. This effort has few paral-
lels in conservation biology," Mr.
Frohlich said.
The reclassification is based


on the recommendations of a
biological review panel headed
by Elsa Haubold, FWC's section
leader for Species
Conservation Planning.
"Factors that contributed to
the decision to list the manatee
as threatened included the
potential for at least a 30 percent
population decline in the future
and a relatively small population
size," Ms. Haubold said.
FWC and its partners have
been successful in rehabilitating
manatees struck by boats or suf-
fering from life-threatening ill-
nesses and injuries.
One such mammal was
found floating near the Isle of
Capri. The manatee was suffer-
ing from a pneumothorax free
air in his chest caused by a
boat striking him.
"They found him floating and
he could not dive," Dr. Maya
Rodriguez, veterinarian with
Miami Seaquarium, said. "When
he came to us, we could tell
immediately he had fractured
ribs. The x-rays showed about
10 fractures, his entire right side
was unstable.
"Of course, he didn't want to
eat, but he was amazing," she
said. "What's amazing is these


manatees are fighters, they want
to survive."
And this particular manatee
did survive. He had free air for
about six months. The young-
ster (his age estimated at 2
years) began associating with
other manatees, especially other
males. He began diving and eat-
ing, gaining about 300 pounds.
Another manatee, this one
from the Florida Keys, suffered
for a longer time than the Isle of
Capri manatee, Rodriguez said.
He had been hit quite some time
before he was found in shallow
water. His type of injuries gener-
ally occur from a boat hull hit-
ting an animal at a very high
speed.
"He had pyothorax where the
(body) cavity fills up with pus,"
she said. "The full cavity was
filled with fluid.
"In the shallows, they don't
eat," she said. "Their entire
being is concentrated on breath-
ing. They can't dive to eat."
Amazingly, Rodriguez said,
this manatee survived the devas-
tating injury. He was the only
one to have done so when he
was released.
"About three years later, he
weighed 1,300 pounds," she


said. "He came in at 600
pounds."
Rodriguez said the most
enjoyment she gets from work-
ing around manatees is giving
them every chance at recovery.
"The ones in such severe
shape, some people think 'do
we put them out of their mis-
ery?'" she said. "But, they just
keep fighting. They don't give up
so we don't give up."
Anyone who would like to
view the management plan to
help protect the manatee can go

The public may provide com-
ments on the plan through 5
p.m. Jan. 11. Comments should
be sent to Manatee Management

Boating

speed zones

change
Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) officers want to remind
boaters of the seasonal speed
zone changes that took effect
last week as manatees return to
South Florida for winter.
Wednesday, Nov. 15, marked
the first day of changes in post-
ed speed zones, which include
reductions or increases in lawful
boat speeds.
"There are more boaters and
more manatees in the water
during the winter season in
South Florida. Although we will
issue citations to violators, we
hope all boaters will comply
with the seasonal changes and
watch out for manatees," FWC
Maj. Brett Norton said. "Our
objectives are to protect human
life, as well as that of the mana-
tee."
As the weather becomes
cooler, manatees will seek
refuge in warmer water, such as
the Riviera Beach Power Plant in
Palm Beach County, Snapper
Creek Canal in Miami-Dade
County and elsewhere in the
Intracoastal Waterway. Boaters
should wear sunglasses with
polarized lenses, obey posted
speed zones and keep an eye on
the water in front of them.
Anyone who spots a strug-
gling, beached or injured mana-
tee should not try to assist the
animal but should call the FWC
Wildlife Alert hotline at (888)-
404-FWCC (3922). For online
information about manatees,

Picture the traditional Thanks-
giving dinner table and most folks
2ill see a beautiful floral arrange-
mnent or centerpiece. A popular fall
Lower found on holiday tables,
near doorsteps and in fall seasonal
bouquets is the Chrysanthemum.
This daisy-like flower comes in
'many different colors and shapes.
S While dedicated gardeners may
;be able to grow them in their Flori-
'da yard, Chrysanthemums, better
known as mums, may be grown as
,seasonal potted plants or used in
:cut flower arrangements. Today's
column is adapted from former UF
.Horticulture Specialist Dr. Bob
'Black and from Orange County
.Horticulture Agent Tom MacCub-
Ibin.
,Colorful
Chrysanthemums
The chrysanthemum is one of
ithe most colorful of all fall flower-
,ing perennials. Wide selections of
"varieties are available ini colors
ranging from white, pink, yellow,
vender, bronze, salmon, orange,
r red. In addition, Mums vary
greatly in type and size. One of the
most popular flower types is the
:single or daisy form. Other flower
-types are anemone, spoon, spider,
standard, and pompon.
Chrysanthemum varieties are
also chosen based on their use.
.Varieties grown for cut flowers and
footballl corsages (e.g. pom-poms)
'are a lot different that the kinds you
see used in potted plants in the
local garden center. The term
;Hardy mum is used for plants
grown in northern gardens as a
bedding plant for fall flowers.
Mums are a short day plant,
which means they form flowers
(vhen the nights get longer. Com-
jnercial flower growers have
-learned what it takes to trick the


Chrysanthemum into flowering at
any time of the year. Besides cover-
ing the plants with black cloth dur-
ing spring and summer growing
periods, growers also use growth
regulators so plants grow multiple
blooms rather than just one flower
at the endof a tall stem.
Using Potted Mums
Chrysanthemums have been at
the garden centers since Septem-
ber, but now is the best time to add
these cool season flowers to the
landscape. Late fall is when we get
maximum enjoyment from these
beautiful flowers.
Gardeners in the more northern
areas have been using mums for
months but it's best if we %wait until
late October or November to set
our Mums in the landscape. If you
waited until now to create your fall
displays the plants are going to
flower a lot longer.


It's also best to purchase your
mums when they have fairly tight
flower buds. Look for just a little
color so you know what you are
buying, but avoid the plants with
wide open flowers. Once fully
open they will soon be past their
peak, and will shortly decline.
It's probably best to' use just a
few mums in the landscape. In
many areas of the South it is com-
mon to see front porches in the fall
with a potted mum .on the
doorstep. Since they are not cheap,
and are a short term investment,
they should be displayed to a maxi-
mum advantage.
Tom MacCubbin suggests that a
couple of potted Mums could be
clustered in a larger container and
set at the door entrance or on the
patio. You could also fill a small
flowerbed area with mums to
obtain a brilliant seasonal splash of
color.

Chamber Buzz


By Sean Moore

Greetings! I would like to begin
today by thanking everyone for
making the new weekly update
feature a success. I hope that you
continue to let us know of any
activities, sales, and community
events as we move forward. If you
have activities that you would like
to let us add to our update, you
can call our office or send it to our
email address, clewistoncham-
ber@earthlink.net.
Following up on something I
mentioned in last week's column,
taking part in community activi-
ties to help promote your busi-
ness. At our recent Halloween fes-
tival, the good folks from KOA had
come up to me and were telling
me that for the first that they could
remember, the campground was
booked solid through the sum-
mer. Understandably, summer
time is not the busy time for
campgrounds in the area, and if
they are busy it is on a weekend
fishing tournament or some other
intermittent activity.
This story actually dates back
to early this year when I met the
new owner Dave Bartlett and his
team of workers. Along with his
partner and Mary Wilson, the on
site manager, Dave set about pub-
licizing the park. He wanted to
know about every community
activity and he offered sponsor-
ship for those events, he offered
booths, and he provided Frisbees
to go into the Chamber of Com-
merce welcome basket program.
The KOA staff did everything they
could to make sure people knew
they were there, and I guess it
worked! Any time KOA had the
chance, they made sure they had
a presence in front of the commu-
nity. That is step one in the
process to ensure people know
you are there. Advertise yourself
to no end.
Promote yourself, and make
sure others promote you as well.
That is where we come in at the
Chamber of Commerce. We can
be sure you are involved in these


community activities if you let us
know you want to be a part. It is
our job to refer you to people
that may call us on the phone or
stop by the office. We only refer
them to you as Chamber mem-
bers, if someone does the same
job as you but is not a member
of our Chamber, they do not get
mentioned. Our job is to support
and promote those people that
support the Chamber, which in
turn allows us to plan, promote,
and improve the community
were we live.
The job of the Chamber of
Commerce is to do all we can to
ensure the success of those busi-
nesses in that same community.
Those who have banded together
to help each other and make the
community a better place are the
ones we shout about the loudest.
If you want to follow the lead of
KOA and get yourself out there,
consider the following: There is a
local group doing a Winter Festi-
val in the next few weeks, have
you reserved a spot? The Sugar
Festival in April is going to be here
before you know it, what would it
take for you to sponsor an entire
section of the festival? Have you
checked what areas are available
for sponsorship? I know the kids'
play park is in need of a sponsor,
and from what I understand the
big night, Miss Sugar also needs
an event sponsor this year. Now
is your chance to make sure
15,000 people passing through
that day have the chance to see
your name and your business all
day long. It may cost you a little
money, but can you really afford
to not spend it?
Think about that, and then let
us help you work toward the
recent success enjoyed by KOA of
Clewiston.
I think that about covers it
everyone! I hope you stuff your-
selves full of food as if you were
the turkey! I will be joining my
family for food, football, and then
one heck of a nap! Gooble Gob-
ble (translated into English that
means See you next week!).

Letters to the Editor


Punishment
was too harsh
I read and watched the report
on the sad situation of a star high-
school football player. As a resi-
dent of Clewiston, I find it very
upsetting that there are times that
people don't pause and think
about what they do. And in this
case, both the football player and
school officials. Yes, the boy did
wrong by being under the influ-
ence of alcohol at the Homecom-
ing dance, BUT, to KICK HIM OFF
the team and SUSPEND him nine
days from school, seems harsh.
Way too harsh. It's as if they want
to make an example out of him.
I understand rules are rules,
but we must consider we are
dealing with a human being here.
We are talking about ruining the
life of a young man who has so
much potential. This is in my
opinion a case in which the crime
did not measure up to the punish-
ment. Yes, he did deserve some
type of punishment for his behav-


ior, but if we as a society go
around booting off athletes and
suspending them for being intoxi-
cated at school dances (Home-
coming or Prom) I assure you
there would be fewer athletes out
there on the field. A field this stu-
dent will never again run free on
as a Clewiston Tiger. So sad, so
unfair and unjust.
Sincerely,
Roberto Sanchez
P.S. I am reminded about the
differences between punitive and
rehabilitative approaches to solv-
ing problems in life. When the
Allies tried to punish Germany
after World War I, all it did was
foster an environment that
allowed for the growth of Nazi
ideology. A better, rehabilitative
approach was taken by the US fol-
lowing World War II towards
Japan, in which our government
helped rehabilitate their entire
country. It has so far created a
modern democratic Japan. In
essence, my point here is that
sometimes when you try to pun-


ish people for something they did
in a punitive way, all it does is lead
to more problems.

Clubhouse donation
questioned
I am writing in response to the
article in the Nov. 9, Clewiston
News, "Central County may


donate its clubhouse."
As a disabled person living on
a fixed income, I have made great
financial sacrifice, by way of sub-
stantially higher property tax
invested in the Clubhouse.
At this time my health allows
me to volunteer for the County
Health Department; unfortunate-
ly, my philanthropy has to stop
there.
I am not in a financial position
to give away real property assets.
It is truly amazing how the
property values have increased
here in Montura.
By Peggy Hampton's modest
assessment, the value of my acre
and a quarter has doubled in the
ten years I have lived here.
I look forward to an independ-
ent market analysis for the current
value of the Clubhouse and prop-
erty.
Only then can we, the invested
land owners make an informed
decision on how much we can
afford to donate.
Arthur M. Gallagher

Annual farm tour tickets on sale Pet Corner


HENDRY COUNTY The
Hendry County Farm-City Tour
Council will be holding its 25th
annual farm tour of the Hendry
County agricultural industry, Sat-
urday, Dec. 2. Tickets for the tour
cost only $50 per person. Partici-
pants will be able to catch a
modern air conditioned tour bus
at the U-Save Supermarket Cen-
ter on Palm Beach Blvd. in Fort
Myers or at the Rodeo Grounds
in LaBelle.
You will then be transported
with knowledgeable tour guides
to various stops around the
county where you can get a
close up look at some of the
most efficient farmers in the
world.
Hendry County is one of the
largest agricultural counties in
the state and was the largest pro-
ducer of round oranges in Flori-
da during the 2004-2005-crop
year. In addition, Hendry County
is the second largest producer of
sugarcane, third largest in veg-


The Internal Revenue Service
announced the standard amounts
that most long-distance cus-
tomers can use to figure their tele-
phone tax refund. These amounts,
which range from $30 to $60, will
enable millions of individual tax-
payers to request the telephone
tax refund without having to dig
through old phone bills.
In general, anyone who paid
the long-distance telephone tax
will get the refund on their 2006
federal income tax return. This
includes individuals, businesses
and nonprofit organizations. The
2006 return is usually filed dur-
ing 2007.
The standard amounts are
based on the total number of
exemptions claimed on the 2006


etable production and fifth
largest in beef cattle.
This year's tour will feature a
variety of interesting stops at
some of Florida's most sophisti-
cated agricultural operations
including vegetable transplant
nurseries, citrus, sod, sugarcane
and vegetable production as
well as one of the largest beef
cattle ranches in the state. There
will also be fresh Florida orange
juice breaks at strategic stops
along the way.
As an extra-added attraction,
lunch will feature a delicious
melt in your mouth steak lunch
with all the trimmings served by
the Hendry County Cattlemen's
Association at Cannon Ham-
mock Park a peaceful tropical
hardwood hammock on the
edge of the Glades. At the end of
the day, you will be transported
to the Hendry County Extension
Office and will be given a free
bag of vegetables, citrus fruit
and other items from the agricul-


federal income tax return. The
standard amounts are $30 for a
person filing a return with one
exemption, $40 for two exemp-
tions, $50 for three exemptions
and $60 for four or more exemp-
tions. For example, a married
couple filing a joint return with
two dependent children (for a
total of four exemptions) will be
eligible for the maximum stan-
dard amount of $60.
To get the standard amount,
eligible taxpayers only need to fill
out one additional line on their
regular 2006 return. The IRS is
creating a special short form
(Form 1040EZ-T) for those who
don't need to file a regular return.
The standard amounts are
based on actual telephone usage


tural industry of Hendry County
to take home with you
In addition to the opportunity
to see Florida agriculture up
close and personal you will
tour some of the most unspoiled
wild lands in all of southwest
Florida where each turn of the
road will reveal natural splendor
and a chance to see a variety of
wildlife.
Deadline for ticket sales is
Nov. 24. For additional informa-
tion about the tour and how to
purchase tickets for the tour, you
may go to the Hendry County
Extension Service Office, which
is located at 1085 Pratt Blvd,
LaBelle. You may also contact
the office as follows:

data, and the standard amount
applicable to a family or other
household reflects the long-dis-
tance phone tax paid by similarly
sized families or households.
Those who paid the long-dis-
tance tax on service billed after
Feb. 28, 2003 and before Aug. 1,
2006 are eligible for a refund.
Only individuals can use the
standard amounts. Alternatively,
individual taxpayers can choose
to figure their refund using the
actual amount of tax paid.
Though businesses and non-
profits must base their telephone
tax refund on the actual amount
of tax paid, the IRS is looking for
ways to make the refund process
easier for these taxpayers. The
IRS is considering an estimation


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. I
have a loyal Labrador named
Rusty. Other than a little ADD, and
occasional dandruff he really is no
problem at all. About four to five
times year his dandruff gets a little
too crusty and itchy to ignore, so
we bring him in for a cortisone
shot. A few days after his shot, he is
good to go (although the ADD is
still there). I heard that cortisone
injections may be harmful and pos-
sible reduce his life span. Is that
really true? Are we hurting Rusty by
giving him those injections?
Thanks Doc. Your biggest fan,
Marvin in Belle Glade!
Answer: Well hey there, Mar-
vin, that's an excellent question!
There are a few different types of
cortisone injections and yes there
are some which may be harmful.
The type which Rusty gets is a
very low, short acting dose. Get-
ting 4-5 injections a year is fine in
his case. If he is having any side
affects, it may be a slight frequen-
cy in water intake and urination.
Cortisone in general is metab-


method that businesses and
nonprofits may use for figuring
the tax paid.
Details on requesting the tele-
phone tax refund will be includ-
ed in all 2006 tax return materi-
als and on irs.gov.

Doc Savvy
olized through the liver and long
term excessive treatments may
cause liver problems, and other
long term side affects like Cush-
ing's Disease. So, if those things
were to happen, then yes his life
span could be affected. Those


more severe effects are generally
seen with high dose long acting
products like Depo Medrol and
Vetalog. Also, it is important to
take into consideration what
may be the lesser of two evils. Is
it better to have your pet com-
fortable with mild side effects or
uncomfortable without any?
That is a personal choice for you,
the pet owner and it should be
discussed in detail with your vet-
erinarian. So as my biggest fan,
Marvin, please talk to me about
any unanswered questions or
concerns you may have.
I hope that helps, Marvin.
Happy Thanksgiving, Doc Savvy.

The honorable giver can do no wrong Area Church News in Brief


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Thanksgiving is upon us! This
is the time of year when we are
encouraged to take a moment not
only to count our many blessings,
but to give thanks to our God who
has helped us make it through the
hardships, losses, and struggles
that we have faced this year.
This is also the time of year
when we are given opportunities
to give in special ways to help
bless those who might need an
extra blessing over the holidays.
In our giving, let us also not forget
the opportunity to help bless
God's ministries at our churches
end the year with strength.
I'm reminded of a story I heard
about the time the King of Siam
came to America for an eye oper-
ation. His American surgeon was
accustomed to setting his fee


according to what the patient
could pay. If a person was
wealthy, he paid the full price. If a
person was poor, he paid almost
nothing. But
this surgeon
couldn't
decide how
much to
charge the
king.
Should it be
free because
he was a king?
Should it be John
$20,000 to Hicks
match his
usual high fees? Or should it be
$40,000 to prove that the opera-
tion was worth the trip? After all, a
king is a king and he has plenty of
money.
Finally, the surgeon checked
with the king's lawyer. The lawyer
said, "The king is an honorable
man. Like you, he understands


value. My advice to you is to sim-
ply send him an invoice with no
amount indicated and then add a
handwritten footnote saying,
"The king can do no wrong."
The doctor followed this
advice and a check came back for
$200,000 (which is a lot of money,
but was a lot more back then)!
The surgeon was overjoyed. He
bought his wife a new wardrobe,
ordered a new car, and blew the
rest on a long cruise.
He arrived home, his pocket
book flattened, but happy and
refreshed. When he began to
open his mail he found a bill from
the king's lawyer. It had no
amount written in, but there was
a handwritten note saying, "The
honorable Doctor can do no
wrong."
Every Sunday we place on the
altar of our church some of the
promises of our giving. God sends
no bills. No statement of our


account with God is going to
show up in our mailbox. No one
looks over your shoulder as you
reach into your wallet or purse.
The bottom line is that God
trusts us to be faithful stewards.
That is how God works. God
trusts us as a faithful community
to provide and care for His min-
istry. In return, we trust God to
not only provide and care for us,
but to help us as we walk through
this thing called life.
The world is like a field ripe for
harvest. We are called and sent
forth by God, like the disciples of
old, to harvest a bountiful crop.
The challenge for us is to give our
time, our talents, and our
resources to help make this hap-
pen. Remember, "The honorable
giver can do no wrong."
God has planted the seeds of
faith, and He will use us, and all of
our gifts, to bring the harvest in.

By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was chosen to be a "group
Captain" on a church trip to Israel
a few years back. The tour com-
pany asked me to serve as coordi-
nator between -
those on-site .f
and the bus-
full of people
that were to '.
spend ten days
in the Holy
Land. When | --,
two of my
friends heard
about the trip, SamuelS.
they asked if Thomas
they could join
our group and I was delighted to
have someone from home with
me. One of our common inter-
ests is amateur radio; the three of
us being "ham radio operators."
We applied for reciprocal licens-
es from the Israeli government
and were granted permission to
operate our amateur gear during
our trip. We saw lots of old
churches and places named in
the Bible, were able to better


understand what we had read
about (a visit to the Valley of the
Shadow of Death made Psalm 23
come alive for me in a new way,
walking in the places where
Jesus would have taken His last
steps made the tragedy of it all so
much more personal, seeing
marketplaces and watching the
dealings going on brought
images of people in Biblical times
and their behavior).
My group shared many experi-
ences during the trip and my
friends and I kept in touch by
short-wave radio. At night, we'd
drop an antenna from a hotel
window and talk to Scandinavia
or Eastern Europe with a small,
compact low-powered transceiv-
er that we carried with us. During
the day trips, we used our hand-
held radios to catch up on where
we were or what we were seeing
or talk to local amateurs in Israel.
One day, a woman reported her
purse was missing and we
stopped to search. There were
some youth nearby and our
assigned tour guide began talking
with them. They were standing at
a distance and saw us talking on
our radios that we carried. One of


them said "You get your C.I.A. -
-out of here!" I was suddenly
aware of how our innocent past-
time appeared to someone who
did not understand.
Somehow we were seen as
some sort of threat, or more than
just visitors.
Later, a young woman came
up to me and began to "flirt."
After bantering for awhile, she
asked me, "What is the radio
for?" I told her that it was linked
to a network in Jerusalem and
thought about showing the
license issued by the government
there, but held back. She walked
off and I wondered if my radio
was the real purpose of our con-
versation. It occurred to me that
many of the simple, innocent
things we do are quickly misinter-
preted by others when they do
not know us, may distrust our
motives, live in a world different
than our own. I stopped to reflect
as best I could about what their
life must be like; greater fears
from potential threats, more diffi-
cult times with trust, worrying
about anything the least bit out-
of-the-ordinary that was going on
around them. Maybe I could


begin to see, as I thought about it,
how I might appear as a menace
of some short in a shakier world
than my own, someone not
understood, someone a little dif-
ferent and therefore to be
watched and not trusted. Then I
remembered another who had
come into that region; who from
His birth was seen as a menace to
a shaky world, who was not
understood by the leaders of His
day, who was different in what
He taught and did; who was
watched and not trusted. I
remembered His words at the
end; "Father, forgive them
because they do not know what
they are doing (John 23:24)" and
realized that sometimes we are
misunderstood, disliked, seen as
a threat even if our intentions,
hopes, concerns are the best.
One of the memories that I car-
ried away along with the under-
standings about Biblical places or
Scriptural teachings was the
tragedy of mistrust and suspicion,
and how it leads to "unwarranted
crucifixions." That's true today,
everywhere, and an unexpected
blessing from a trip that taught
more than expected.

PAHOKEE Over 200 youth
and adults from the South Flori-
da District (including 18 from
Pahokee/Canal Point) of the
Church of the Nazarene
descended on Pahokee the
weekend of Nov. 10-12, for an
Extreme Encounter mission. The
days consisted of hard work and
the evenings consisted of a com-
munity meal, fellowship and the
dynamic Kurt Salierno, Pastor of
Church on the Street in Atlanta
GA who spoke to Extreme
Encounter '06 participants.
The group was representative
of 85 churches in the South Flori-
da District with each young adult
paying $49 for the privilege of
sleeping on church floors, taking
cold showers and eating outside
under a huge tent. Oh yes, and
working hard all day in the South
Florida sun. And they did work
hard; the projects they complet-
ed included: painting three pavil-
ions at Martin Luther King Park,
painting the exterior walls at the
"old Western Auto" building,
painting the bathroom facilities
at the Pahokee "Sprinkler Park"
and also painting two buildings
at the Pahokee Marina. The
youth also replaced the roof at
the Canal Point Hispanic
Church, and for a resident in Citi-
zens Village. They also moved a
storage shed, and demolished a
storage building and cleaned up
a yard for area residents.
At the Saturday worship serv-
ice, Pahokee Mayor J.P. Sasser
presented a plaque to the District
Church of the Nazarene for their
hard work and dedication.

Sasser. "Many churches make
promises in this community but
this is one church that always
delivers."
Many people in Pahokee
remember Pastor Danny Moore
and the Church of the Nazarene
for disaster relief work in the
community in the last few years.
Pastor Moore was not surprised
by the turnout.
"A lot of these kids really
enjoy helping the community on
these missions, its good for them
and we look for even greater
involvement in the future," he
said.
For this weekend Pahokee
was the recipient and several
area residents are grateful.

Tigers win region, prepare for showdown with Chaminade


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston High School
Tigers outlasted a stubborn Tampa
Catholic team last Friday night and
brought home a 10-7 victory. The
Tigers found themselves in a pure
defensive tussle and finally got the
offense going enough to prevail.
The win propelled the Tigers to a
state championship semifinal re-
match this Friday night against Hol-
lywood Chaminade at Cane Field.
It was a strange contest for hun-
dreds of Tiger fans that trekked
through several 1-75 traffic jams to
get there. The Tigers were not scor-
ing at will as they seemingly had
done this season. And while the
faithful probably never felt that the
Tigers were actually going to lose,
they also didn't have any firm belief
that they were going to win either.
In the end, the game was won
using all facets of football. The
defense stood out for the entire
game, save a single pass play. The
offense was awakened for a late
second period drive and then con-
trolled the ball in the second half.
And the Tiger kicking game was
solid, with kicker Will Davis making
the crucial point after following the
Tigers' lone touchdown of the night
and then hitting a 37-yard field goal
from the right side hash marks to
nail down the Tigervictory.
Clewiston's offense got off to
another slow first half, a pattern
that has evolved over the second
half of the regular season. After
being held to a lone first down, 12
snaps and only 37 yards of total
offense in thefirst 21 minutes of the
game, the defense took the ball
away from Tampa Catholic as the
Crusaders were driving towards the
Tiger end zone. Tiger linebacker
David Pope fell on a loose ball at
the Clewiston 16 with only 2:52
remaining in the half. Quarterback
Jared Combass then hooked up
with flanker John Melton, who
made a falling acrobatic catch, for a
28-yard gain.
S Next came a flats pass to Omar
Smith for 8 more yards. Tampa
Catholic was then flagged for illegal
substitution, a 15-yard infraction,
followed on the next play by anoth-
er 15-yard walk off for a personal
foul. The second penalty was
important to the Tigers, as it fol-
lowed a run on which tailback Dar-
ris Hughes was pinned for a 10 yard
loss. Hughes came right back with
a hard running gain of 12 yards to
the Crusader 31. From there, Com-
bass dropped back and spoiled

line on the corner.
The pass had to be perfect and it
was, with Combass putting it
where no one but Melton had a
chance of catching it. Melton pulled
it in over his outside shoulder and
made, sure his feet got into the end
zone. Will Davis' point after kick
evened the score at 7 each.
The Crusaders had drawn first
blood on a 50-yard pass from quar-
terback Dickie Delama to wideout
Eric Gerkin on the third play of the
second period.
There was some coverage mix-
up in the Tiger secondary that led
to the score. The Tiger defense
went into the contest knowing they
were facing the best passer they
had seen on the season, with Dela-
ma completing about 65 percent of
his passes. The strategy was to stop
the deep pass and control the
underneath passing attempts and it
worked for the entire game except
of this one long throw.
The Tigers took the second half
kickoff and drove 66 yards in 11
plays getting to the Crusader 20
yard line. The drive was highlight-
ed by hard running, helmet smash-
ing carries by Darris Hughes for
gains of 23, 12, 13 and 11 yards.
Faced with a fourth down and five,
Tiger coach Larry Antonacci sent
Davis out to do his work and the
kick was perfect. The following
kickoff was returned 51 yards by
the Crusaders' Christian Green but
their offense got no yardage on
three plays and they \en tfor a 55-
yard field goal


Kelley did not catch the ball
clean and kick returned John
Melton, at first seemingly puzzled
about whether a short field goal
could be returned, snatched the
ball up at the two yard line and
raced 62 yards before being tackled
at the Crusader 36.
But, after an immediate rushing
first down, the Tigers stalled at the
Tampa Catholic 20 yard line and
Davis was called upon again for an
identical 37-yard attempt. This time
the kick sailed a little left of the tar-
get and the ball went over to the
Crusaders.
Delama found a hot hand as he
connected on four straight comple-
tions, all for short yardage. He then
decided to go for broke and tossed
a pass deep down the center of the
field that was apparently out of
everyone's reach. Everyone except
Tiger deep back Omar Smith who
somehow got in position and
made a giant leap and pulled in the
interception as he hit the ground at
the Tiger 25 yard line. The Tigers
could not materialize on the
turnover and went three and out,
punting the ball early in the final
period.
From midfield with 11 minutes
remaining on the clock, Tampa
Catholic decided to try and grind it
out on the ground, although they
had only netted 21 yards rushing on
17 attempts in the first three peri-
ods. They eked out two first downs
and got to the Tiger 31. Two more
running plays left them with a third
and Iour tor a first down.
Delama dropped back to pass

receiver after a short gain.


and Tiger defensive end Delvin
Hughes was immediately in his
face, dropping him for a sack and
an eight-yard loss. Like the decision
to abandon a passing attack that
had been there only offensive spark
of the night, Tampa Catholic then
made another questionable deci-
sion to punt the ball away from the
Tiger 37. The ball came down at the
10-yard line in the middle of Crusad-
er coverage backs but Tiger John
Melton caught the ball on the move
and got a 10-yard return. From
there, the Tiger offensive line and
backs started a twelve-play drive
that just burned up the remaining
six minutes in the game. But it took
a lot longer to play six minutes off
the dock. With a little over 2 min-
utes remaining, a momentary
power failure put out the stadium
lights. It was about 20 minutes
before the lights cooled enough to
come back on and continue the
game. As ihe final horn sounded,
the Tigers \were knocking on the


door at the Crusader 3-yard line.
"We played a heck of game
against a tough opponent. Our fan
support tonight meant a lot to our
kids. We had a big send-off from
Clewiston this afternoon and then
we had a huge turnout from our
Tiger parents and fans," said Tiger
Coach Larry Antonacci. "After that
sluggish first half performance, we
gave the football to our offensive
line at halftime and told them this
was their game to win or lose," he
added.
"Our offensive line domination
in the second half tilted things in
our favor." The strategy worked
very well as the Crusaders only had
16 offensive snaps in the entire sec-
ond half.
John Melton was almost too
excited to talk after the game.
"We are going to state," he said.
"Jared laid that touchdown pass
in where only I could catch it and
it \ ,j3S i 'rl kI :- "
kickl-r \W'll Da Ii g\'ave credit lo


his kicking team specialists.
"Snapper Kale Mitchell was right
on target and Melton got the ball
down perfectly. I just went through
the mechanics of kicking the ball."
Tailback Darris Hughes couldn't
stand still as he talked about the
game. "I just ran as hard as I could
and when the defense got in my
way I just lowered my head." On
the night, Hughes had 110 yards on
22 carries.
While the offense was keeping
the ball out of the Crusader's
offense's hand during the second
half, the Tiger defense was busy at
work as it was for the whole game.
They stuffed a pretty good Cru-
sader running game, allowing
them only 34 yards on 24 carries.
Linebacker Collin Ricketts had
seven solo tackles and corner
Jasper Hunter chipped in six.
From his defensive end position,
Delvin Hughes also blocked a Cru-
sader punt.
The State Semifinal contest on
Friday night should be a great
match-up.
Chaminade advanced by beat-
ing Plantation American Heritage
21-0 in their game. This is the same
American Heritage team that
Clewiston beat 31-14 at the outset
of the season.
Game time is 7:30 and a sellout
crowd is expected.

FWC to transfer duck hunting permits


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) will transfer the permits of
duck hunters planning to hunt in
Stormwater Treatment Area I-W
because water managers are low-
ering water depths there. The
hunters will be allowed to hunt in
Area 3/4 instead.
Water managers at South


Florida Water Management Dis-
trict are lowering water depths in
Area 1-W to prepare for con-
struction. Therefore, hunters
previously permitted by the FWC
for duck hunting in there on Sun-
days, Nov. 19 and 26; Dec. 10, 17,
24 and 31; and Jan. 7, 14, 21 and
28, will have their permits trans-
ferred to Area 3/4 for those same


dates. Permit holders for the
Area 1-W youth hunt on Feb. 4
will be transferred to 3/4 instead.
Area 1-W permit holders and
standby duck hunters will not be
allowed access Area 1-W during
these dates.
Area 3/4 currently hosts Satur-
day duck hunts managed by the
FWC. Area 3/4 permit holders will


continue to hunt Saturdays at that
site, which allows standby
hunters on scheduled hunt dates,
Saturday and Sundays.
Area 3/4 is directly west of U.S.
27 in Palm Beach County, just
north of the Broward/Palm Beach
County Line, off the L-5 levee. For
more information, call the FWC's
Sunrise Office at (954) 746-1789.


Pahokee Devils trounce Kings Academy


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The Pahokee Blue
Devils came through huge in this
game and as a result advanced to
the state semifinals.
They did it by trouncing King's
Academy, 32-0. Pahokee held the
Lions to 158 yards of total offense.
They did that by only allowing Sam-
muel Lamur of King's Academy to
1-of-6 passing for 29 yards. Paho-
kee allowed 129 rushing yards to 5
different runners, but much of that
came in garbage time.
On the offensive side of the ball,
Janoris Jenkins led Pahokee with
an astounding rushing perform-
ance of 11 rushes for 151 yards and
three touchdowns. Vincent Smith
also added a rushing touchdown.
Pahokee also scored on a
blocked punt. When the Lions
elected to punt on fourth down,
Barrington Bentley, a Pahokee sen-


ior, blocked the punt and Dwight
Bentley picked the ball up and ran it
in for the score. Anthony Sheppard
struggled in this game, going 6-for-
16 with 163 passing and three inter-
ceptions but it didn't matter in this
contest, as King's Academy simply
were overmatched in this contest.
However, Pahokee coach Leroy
Sheppard wasn't too pleased with
his team's effort, as the Blue Devils
committed eight penalties for 75
yards. A holding call took away two
touchdown runs, which included a
71-yard touchdown run by Jenkins.
"The focus wasn't there. It
seemed like we were looking
past our opponent, thinking it
was going to be easy. We have to
do better than that next week,"
Foster said.
Pahokee needs to definitely
reduce the penalties if it wants to
beat Cardinal Mooney in the Class
2B state semifinals next week at
Sarasota.


Sports in Brief


Coast Guard
makes house calls
LAKE OKEECHOBEE Did
you know the U.S. Coast Guard
Auxiliary makes house calls?
They will come to your home to
discuss the required safety equip-


ment needed on your boat. This
service is free. You will receive a
cordial, informative, and confi-
dential boat inspection. A vessel
safety check decal will be placed
on boats that meet all the require-
ments. Call (863) 467-3085 to
arrange a boat check.


For King's academy, Myles Jack-
son had 72 yards of total offense,
while Brandon Garmon had 11 car-
ries for 86 yards.
In other games, Clewiston
advanced to the Class 2A state
semifinals by beating Tampa
Catholic, 10-7, in Tampa, led by
Jared Combass. He had 67 yards
passing, including a 31-yard
touchdown to John Melton. The
difference maker would be a 37-
yard field goal by Will Davis in the
third quarter.
However, Tampa Catholic
would strike first, performing a 50-
yard touchdown pass for Dickie
Delarma to Eric Gerkin. The
Clewiston Tigers' defense held the
Crusaders in check the rest of the
way. It was basically a tough, defen-
sive win for Clewiston, but they
earned their way to the state semis.
In the Class 1A regional finals,
Glades Day won in a rout, beating
Fort Meade by a score of 44-0 at
Gator Field. Cedric Taylor and Nate
Brinkley combined for 305 rushing
yards and Josh McGregor threw
two touchdown passes, both to
Anthony Nelson. The touchdown
passes were a 6-yard pass and a 40-
yard Hail Mary pass at the end of
the first half.
McGregor also had a rushing
touchdown on a quarterback
sneak, while the Glades day
defense only allowed Fort Meade


242 yards of total offense.
Glades Day will be playing
Miami-Dade Christian on the road
next week in the state semifinals.
In the Class 3A regional final,
Glades Central dominated the
LaBelle Cowboys, 49-10. The
Raiders initially scored on a 90-
yard kickoff return by Deonte
Thompson in the first quarter.
Then Glades Central scored four
times in the second quarter by
four different players.
They scored again in the third
quarter, with a 14-yard passing
touchdown from quarterback
Bryan Mann to Thompson. The
Raiders final score would be on
a 1-yard touchdown run by
Antwon Chilson.
LaBelle's only scoring would
come from an opening strike by
Ray Hernandez, with a 38-yard
field goal in the first quarter, and
an 84-yard touchdown pass
from quarterback Caleb Jordan
to receiver Chad Lutkenhaus.
Glades Central held LaBelle
to fewer that 150 yards of total
offense.
If Pahokee, Clewiston and
Glades Day win their games next
week, they will all be at Dolphin
Stadium for the weekend of Dec.
1-2. It would be Muck football
indeed.

INI FLORIDA
Feasting is common to most
celebrations.
Food is a human tradition
that cuts right through every cul-
tural barrier. Of course, not
everyone likes the same thing.
That's where tradition comes in.
Tradition comes from what
foods are available. That's why
in New England, oyster stuffing
might be more common than
the Southern cornbread stuffing
and bread stuffing is traditional
in the Northeast. And all shades
in between.
Native Americans had their
holiday traditions as well. Their
holiday traditions were different
than those of the white settlers.
This lead some European set-
tlers to assume Native Ameri-
cans were "savages" since their
food, holidays, language, tradi-
tions were different. Native
American culture was rich and
varied as the land they called
home, America.
The Seminole people of Flori-
da had traditions and their foods
were the foods that grew or
could be caught here in Florida.
Much of their culture seems to
have been lost, perhaps because
their language was not written.
Old photographs of Thanks-
giving celebrations indicate that
Seminoles have adopted this
uniquely American tradition.
Seminole foods involved sal-
ads, breads, soups, sweets, veg-
etables and meat: deer, alligator,
fish, frog legs, sweet berries and
honey.
"They don't eat turkey or rab-
bit," though said Ann McCud-
den, director of the Ah-ta-thi-ki
Seminole Museum on the Big
Cypress Seminole Reservation.
They dried and ground Coon-
tie, a Florida shrub to make flour
which they made into bread.
Fried bread is most common.
Years ago, a pot of "Sof-kee"
would be kept hot over the fire
in case any one was hungry. Sof-
kee is porridge, kind of like a

cooked cereal made with corn
or hominy, salt and water. They
did not eat three meals a day, but
ate as they were hungry.
Most formal cooking was
done on special occasions
according to the Ah-ta-thi-ki
Museum Web site. From the
Seminole people we learned to
make swamp cabbage. Here is a
recipe from the A-ta-thi-ki Web
site:
Taal-holelke (Boiled
Swamp Cabbage)
Cut out the heart of the cab-
bage palm. Strip off the outer
hard tough fronds to reach the
actual white heart. This is the
tenderest part and should be cut
into 1/2-inch strips or cubes.
Cook slowly in very little water
for 20-30 minutes, adding two
tablespoons of cane syrup or
sugar and salt to taste. Stir fre-

quently to prevent sticking.
(Swamp cabbage appears on
your grocery shelves as "Hearts
of Palm.")
Alligator Tail
2 pounds alligator tail meat
Juice of lemon
1 cup flour
1 garlic clove
Salt and pepper to taste
2 eggs, beaten
1/2 cup lard or butter
Cut tail into strips lengthwise,
4 x 2-inches wide. Sprinkle with
lemon juice.
Mix flour, garlic powder,


paprika, salt and pepper. Pat the
alligator pieces dry and dip into
flour, then into beaten eggs. Let
eggs drip off and dip into flour
again.
Heat lard or butter in a large
skillet and saute the alligator
pieces quickly. Do not overcook
or they will be tough. Serve
immediately.
Follow the above recipe and
brown the alligator meat as
directed. As soon as it is
browned, add 2 cups of water
and / cup fresh lemon juice to
the skillet. Cover and simmer for
2 to 3 hours or until very tender.

CYDS students
recognized
Project H.O.P.E. presented cer-
tificates of achievement on Nov. 9,
to students at Clewiston Youth
Development Association (CYDA)
who participated in the "expres-
sions through painting" with the
purpose to allow residents, specifi-
cally students of local schools to
express the experience they went
through during hurricane Wilma.
Individual strengths of stu-
dents were reflected in their paint-
ings and further identified by ask-
ing them about their short-term
and long-term goals. The presen-
tation included recognition for
their artwork as well as their
accomplishments and their future
goals. Each participant was pre-
sented with a certificate of
achievement for their participa-
tion in "expressions through
painting", a couple of certificates
donated by McDonalds from
Clewiston, and a brief description
of their accomplishments and
their short-term and long-term
goals. The presentation was
made in the meeting room with
all the students and staff present.
Wellness Council
needs volunteers
Clewiston Middle School needs
people to serve on the School Well-
ness Council.
The council will be meeting on
Nov. 28, at 6 p.m. in the CMS Media
Center. We are asking ALL parents
to attend because this affects ALL
of our students as well as teachers
and staff. If there are any questions
please call Gwen Patrick at (863)

FORT MYERS New Girl
Scout troops are beginning now
in the Clewiston and Moore
Haven areas for girls in kinder-
garten through sixth grade.
In Girl Scouting, girls experi-
ence a wide variety of activities
including camping, performing
arts, sports, science, cooking,
and money management.
Do you know any middle or
high school age girls who would
enjoy the leadership experience,
college and career exploration,
travel and opportunities for com-
munity service that Girl Scouts
offer? We are also interested in
beginning a group especially for
older girls.
For more information on Girl
Scouting in Hendry and Glades

Hurricane help comes to Florida School News


GAINESVILLE Dairy produc-
ers needing help to recover from
2005 hurricane losses have an
opportunity to apply for assistance
from the U.S. Department of Agri-
culture, through a $17 million
2005 Dairy Disaster Assistance
Payment Program (DDAP-II),
authorized by the Emergency
Agricultural Disaster Assistance
Act of 2006, announced Kevin L.
Kelley, State Executive Director for
the USDA's Farm Service Agency.
The sign-up period for DDAP-II
began on Nov. 1 and ends one
month later on Nov. 30.
"Last year's destructive hurri-
canes caused large production
losses and herd deaths, as well as
milk spoilage due to closed pro-
cessing plants and damaged bulk
tanks," said Kelley. "This new Dairy
Assistance Payment Program will
help dairy producers recover from
these devastating losses.".
Eligible DDAP-II counties are
those declared a natural disaster
by Secretary Johanns or designat-
ed a major disaster or emergency
by President Bush for 2005 calen-
dar year hurricanes: Katrina,
Ophelia, Wilma or Rita. Counties
contiguous to an approved coun-
ty are also eligible.
Counties declared disaster
areas by Hurricaie Dennis are
ineligible for DDAP-II because
the legislation did not provide for
disaster losses resulting from

the city will be offering support
in any way they can and contin-
ue to see these types of activities
as a wonderful thing for the
community.
Clewiston Mayor Mali Cham-
ness sees the value in this type of
community activity; "The July
4th, Fall Festival and now the
Winter Wonderland are a great
way for the community to gather
together and provide good,
wholesome fun that will hope-
fully bring many wonderful
memories for years to come to
those who attend, especially the
kids!"
The main attraction during
the first year celebration will be
the appearance of snow in
Clewiston. Event organizers
have arranged for snow to be
brought by truck to the park for
what will be many residents first
exposure to the cold stuff.
Other activities planned for
the day include the chance for
kids to meet Santa, take a hay
ride to view Christmas lights,
play games and witness the
lighting of a community tree.


Hurricane Dennis.
Producers in 37 Florida coun-
ties are eligible to apply for the
program.
The following 24 counties were
primary disaster areas as a result of
the 2005 hurricanes: Bay, Brevard,
Broward, Charlotte, Collier, Escam-
bia, Franklin, Glades, Gulf, Hardee,
Hendry, Highlands, Indian River,
Lee, Martin, Miami-Dade, Monroe,
Okaloosa, Okeechobee, Palm
Beach, St. Lucie, Santa Rosa, Sara-
sota, and Walton. The following 13
counties are also eligible as they are
contiguous: Calhoun, DeSoto, Hills-
borough, Holmes, Jackson, Liberty,
Manatee, Orange, Osceola, Polk,
Volusia, Wakulla, and Washington.
To be eligible, a dairy producer
must have suffered dairy produc-
tion and spoilage losses from
August through December 2005
due to Hurricane Katrina or losses
from October through December
2005 due to Hurricane Wilma or
related conditions and suffered the
losses in an eligible DDAP-II county.
The Farm Service Agency will
determine dairy production and
spoilage losses using the estab-
lished history of the operation's
commercial production marketed
and production dumped or not
marketed >during the applicable
claim perioc ..n
An eligible dairy operation's
payment is calculated by multiply-
ing the applicable payment rate by


Booth space is available for the
night and all groups or business-
es are encouraged to take part.
Any group that would like to
secure a booth in the park can
contact Heather Vallejo-Spry at
228-1491.
In addition to the games and
activities, the Winter Wonder-
land will also serve as a hub for a
local Toy Drive. All new
unwrapped toys collected during
the event will be donated to local
families that are in need during
the holiday season.
Chamber of Commerce exec-
utive director, Sean Moore is
encouraging his Chamber mem-
bers to get involved. "Our Cham-
ber members are great when it
comes to this type activity," said
Mr. Moore. "They stepped up
when they were needed for the
4th of July and Halloween activi-
ties and I hope that trend contin-
ues. Things like this are what
make our community a great
place to live and this event has a
chance to be even bigger than
the other two; even I want to
play in the snow!"
ACFC member Elizabeth
McDaniel-Garcia hopes to enjoy
similar success to previous com-
munity events but isn't going to


the operation's total eligible losses.
The payment rate for eligible
losses varies, depending on the
average monthly mailbox milk
price for Florida, the Southeast,
Western Texas and Appalachian
states marketing orders reported
by USDA's Agricultural Marketing
Service during the claim period
months where the dairy operation
is physically located.
The maximum payment rate
for Florida is $18.19 per hundred-
weight ($0.1819 per pound), aver-
aged to account for the mailbox
price from August through October
2005, when the hurricanes
occurred. An eligible dairy opera-
tion's payment is calculated by
multiplying the payment rate
(which varies by state) by the oper-
ation's total eligible losses.
Alternate payment rates may be
used if the total DDAP-II funding is
insufficient to fully compensate eli-
gible producers for eligible losses.
Dairy producers can apply for
the program at local FSA offices.
Applications are available at
FSA offices and online at:
http://www.sc.egov.usda.gov. A
DDAP-II fact sheet is also online at:

"A successful event would be
the turnout of many children in
our community having a great
time playing in the snow, many
of them for the first time," said
Ms. McDaniel-Garcia. "We hope
to create a little Christmas cheer
and fill the bottom of the tree
with many toys for needy chil-
dren in our community.
Seeing many give back and
teaching children to help those
