HCSO busts major drug ring


Interagency effort
leads to four arrests
in Harlem

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Last week
Hendry County Sheriff Depart-
ment served four search war-
rants arresting four of the
alleged major suppliers of crack
cocaine in the Clewiston Area.


The sheriff's office is hoping
that the bust will put a sizeable
dent in the narcotics activity in
the area, and all efforts are in tar-
.geting local drug rings.
The sheriff's office arrested
Laart Ronjik Gary, 26, Micheal
Deangelo Holmes, 40, and Tar-
sha Brooks, 31, and Jathaniel
Reggie Brooks, 29, all of Harlem,
were arrested in connection
with the drug charges.
The bust is the culmination of
a six-month long investigation


headed by the sheriff's office.
The criminal investigations divi-
sion of the sheriff's office has been
following trails leading to who they
believe may 'be the major drug
suppliers to the 'Hendry County
area. The unit worked closely with
federal and state agencies, includ-
ing the Drug Enforcement Agency
and the Florida Department of Law
Enforcement.
The four individuals arrested
face charges of possession in
excess of one quarter kilo of

crack cocaine and several
ounces of powdered cocaine.
The law enforcement agen-
cies also recovered narcotics in
the arrest, confiscating approxi-
mately $150,000, street value, in
drugs. Also seized during the
bust were two firearms and
$10,000 in cash.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee attributes
the success of this latest drug
operation to the work of his
deputies and the partner agen-
cies involved in the investigation.


"I want to thank all those
whom participated in the search
warrant for the hard work and
many hours put in," Sheriff Lee
said. "I also want to extend many
thanks to all the law enforce-
ment agencies and its special
agents for their assistance."
Sheriff Lee said his depart-
ment is continuing to follow
numerous leads and is confident
that more arrests will follow.

CLEWISTON CREW helped
facilitate reasons to give thanks this
holiday season. On Saturday, Nov.
19, a group of seven from First Pres-
byterian Church in Pompano
Beach traveled to help repair Gail's
of Lakeport home that was
destroyed by Hurricane Wilma.
The previous week, Manassas St.
Thomas United Methodist Church
came for five days and replaced
four roofs and worked on a home
in Moore Haven with interior dam-
age. Three local individuals, Daniel
Luna, Danny Luna, Gregorio Garcia
also helped this month by repairing
an elderly man's trailer and the trail-
er of a grandmother who lives with
her daughter and six grandchil-
dren. Thanks to a gift from the,
Rotary Club, we were also able to
hire Titus Smith Services to replace
Marcus's roof, porch and interior
walls. Visit CREW's blog site
http://huricanerecovery.blogspot.c
om/ and Web site
http://home.earthlink.net/-hurri-
canerecovery/ for pictures and
more information.
Three local volunteers, Daniel
Luna, Danny Luna, Gregorio Garcia
worked to repair Calvin's trailer.
Calvin is an 82-year-old who has
been a resident of the Clewiston
area for 33 years. He supported his
family by working at Shawnee
farms.
These local volunteers stepped
up and helped install a new door,
trim and molding that were
destroyed by Hurricane Wilma. A
grant from the NFL helped pay for
the supplies and any costs the vol-
unteers incurred. This same'group
went to Kathleen's home.
Kathleen is a 72-year-old
woman who lives with her daugh-
ter and six grandchildren. Hurri-
cane Wilma damaged her home's
roof, ceiling and back door.
Between insurance and her own
savings she was able to get the
money after a year's time to fix the
roof with help of friends. She was
also able to buy a door, but had no
way to install or the any money to
pay anyone to install it. She shared
the following with us:
"CREW has helped me tremen-
dously. I didn't have finances and
they helped by putting in a back
door for me. Also they kept in
touch with me. The door fits great
so there is no hot or cold air com-
ing in. There are also no spiders or
animals coming in from outside,"
she said. A grant through the NFL
also helped with costs incurred by
volunteers in this home as well.
A talented and spirited group of
20 volunteers, from St. Thomas
United Methodist Church in Manas-
sas, Va., came to repair roofs. They
slept on cots in a local church and
worked from sun up to sun down
(sometimes past sun down). The


first home they worked on was
William's in Clewiston.
William had massive damage to
his home from Hurricane Wilma. A
year after the storm he still had a
"blue roof" and damaged win-
dows. With the help of funding
from the NFL for materials and vol-
unteer costs, this group was able to
completely replace the roof
(including rotted plywood). While
here, the group also worked on
Luis's home in Moore Haven.
Luis is a 50-year-old disabled
man living in a low income rented
home. The roof was damaged and
the house leaked under the door,
there was a huge whole in the
kitchen ceiling from a water leak,
the floor was spongy throughout
the house and the sink needs to be
replaced. CREW initially tarped the
home to provide him with tempo-
rary relief. The owner shared that
he did not have the funds to fix the
home and he rented to Luis at a
low rate, since he had been there a
long time. He signed an agreement
to not raise the rent or displace Luis
for three years if CREW was able to
help make some repairs. Our Vir-
ginia volunteers were able to
replace his roof, plywood and all.
The NFL helped cover the costs for
this home as well.
This incredible group while
here also worked on Altovise's
home. She is a single mother of
three daughters who has lived in
Hendry County for three years. She
suffers from Lupus as well. In June,
we tarped her home to provide
temporary relief. She had insur-
ance, however, her deductible was
almost 50 percent. She used her
insurance money and then United
Church of Christ Disaster Assis-
tance pitched in the remainder of
the funds needed. The Virginia vol-
unteers replaced sorte plywood
and all of the roofing. The final roof
this wonderfMl group from Virginia
worked on was Blanca's. She is a
disabled adult who lives alone with
limited functioning. She received,
Funding from FEMA but used the'
funds to purchase clothing, food
and other daily necessities. Her roof
needs to be repaired, however she
is unable to effectively advocate for
herself, she has a guardian who
provides assistance as well, but
they were unable to get the roof
repaired.
The United Church of Christ Dis-
aster assistance also paid for these
materials as well. The UCC group
also sent a film CREW out to docu-
ment our volunteer's work on the
homes!
The last home they worked on
(yes that's four complete roofs and
then some in four and a half days)

Water shortage brings restrictions


approximately 165 pounds. His
last known address was on
South Coconut Road in Paho-
kee. He has also been known as
"Tarick Ilolmes."
He is wanted on charges of
aggravated assault on a preg-
nant person.
Anyone with information on
the whereabouts of this fugitive
can contact the Crime Stoppers
at 1 (800)-458-TIPS (8477) or
online at www.crimestoppersp-
bc.com.


The local area is still under
water restrictions due to a water
shortage.
On Nov. 9, 2006, the Governing
Board of the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
declared a mandatory water
shortage order for the Lake Okee-
chobee Service Area (LOSA). This
area includes the Everglades Agri-
cultural Area, and portions of
Hendry, Glades, Lee, Okee-
chobee, Palm Beach and Martin
Counties.
Classified as a Phase 1 or mod-
erate water shortage declaration,


the order impacts agricultural,
industrial and commercial water
users as well as public water sup-
ply utilities around the Lake; with-
drawals from the Caloosahatchee
River; and a relatively small num-
ber of residential users whose
water source is Lake Okeechobee
or any of the surface water canals
recharged by the Lake. Groundwa-
ter sources are not restricted by this
order, and users are allowed to uti-
lize groundwater in accordance
with their permits.
A water shortage warning, and
a call for voluntary water conserva-


tion, has been issued for the Lower
East Coast.
Water lawns
in early morning
Due to the water shortage, resi-
dential water users in the LOSA are
required to limit outdoor irrigation
times to three days per week and
no more than four hours per day.
Residents with odd home address-
es are allowed to water between
the hours of 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. EST
on Monday, Wednesdays and Sat-
urdays, while residents with even


home addresses are allowed to
water between the hours of 4 a.m.
and 8 a.m. EST on Tuesdays, Thurs-
days and Sundays. No domestic
water use for outdoor irrigation is
allowed on Fridays.
In addition, residential users
will be asked to wash their vehi-
cles within these specific times
and also are expected to observe
normal water conservation prac-
tices within the home. The use of
water for firefighting, safety, sani-
tation, health, medical and other
essential purposes will not be
restricted.


Florida Relay becomes FIRST CHRISTIAN CHURCH OF CLEWISTON


more user-friendly



TALLAHASSEE On Tuesday,
Nov. 21, the Florida Public Service
Commission (PSC) approved a
change to the Florida Relay Service
(Relay) aimed at making the call-
ing service more user-friendly.
Relay operators will' now be able
to inform the called party (who are
able to hear) that a person who is
deaf or hearing impaired is calling.
The change should help reduce
the number of calls that cannot be
completed because the hearing
person is not familiar with a relay
call. In the past, people unfamiliar
with how Relay works would
often hang up when receiving a
call from the Relay operator think-
ing it was a solicitor call. The PSC


anticipates that the change will
also provide customers with a
more friendly and warm interac-
tion with Relay operators.
Florida Relay is a service that
allows a deaf or hearing impaired
person to contact a hearing per-
son through a specialized opera-
tor. A deaf or impaired person
uses a teletype machine to type
and receive text messages from
the operator while the operator
voices the conversation to the
hearing person. The specialized
telephone equipment and ring
signaling devices provided
through this program are loaned
to all qualified permanent Florida
residents at no charge.

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Clewis-
ton City Commission has
appointed Joseph "Joey" Miller
as city commissioner to con-
clude the term left by Mathew
"Matt" Beatty.
Mr. Beatty resigned his post as
a commissioner in the city after
winning his bid in this year's
election to serve as a member of
the Hendry County School
Board.
Before the new commission-
er was sworn in to take the posi-
tion, officials with the City of
Clewiston wished their depart-
ing.commissioner good luck in
his new venture.
The commission expressed


appreciation to Mr. Beatty, offer-
ing a resolution for his dedica-
tion and service to the commu-
nity, as well as his leadership
initiative in reaching out to citi-
zens, employees and his fellow
commissioners.
"As a respect for Commis-
sioner Beatty, we extend to him
our highest tribute and the desire
for his success in the future,"
said Mayor Mali Chamness.
Mr. Beatty was equally thank-
ful.
"The last five years serving as
a city commissioner were great,"
said Matt Beatty "I thank each
and everyone in the city of
Clewiston for the opportunity
they gave me."
Mr. Beatty said he was anx-
ious to start his new job.


Mr. Beatty said he was "look-
ing forward to start my new role
as a member of the Hendry
County School Board."
Following Matt Beatty's reso-
lution, Joseph Miller was sworn
in to fill the vacant position. Mr.
Miller had been previously cho-
sen out of a pool of candidates
by the commission to complete
Mr. Beatty's term -which does-
n't officially end until October
2007.
"I am very excited to take this
seat as city commissioner. I'm
looking forward to continuing
working and doing all the good
things already started," said

Letters to the Editor


ACLU issue
Reference is made to Mr.
Boland's letter of Nov. 22, casting
aspersions on the ACLU for its spir-
ited defense of cases involving state
sponsored religion.
I was taught that the Constitu-
tion and Bill of Rights was drafted
in part to protect the minority from
the whims of the majority. We all
know how the majority can easily
trample the rights of a few.
Does anyone recall the intern-
ment of Japanese Americans dur-
ing World War II? And there is
always the possibility that the cur-
rent majority could become the
minority. Howwouldwe then feel?
As an infantry veteran and a


former member of the American
Legion I thought it was my duty to
defend the Constitution of the
United States, not the rights of a
few misguided political hacks
who want to stuff religion down
our throats for political gain. I
salute the ACLU for defending the
Constitution. By doing so, all of us
are protected.
Incidentally, Indiana Congress-
man John Hostettler, an ardent
supporter of right wing fundamen-
talists, was defeated by over ten
points in the recent election as his
constituents finally woke up.

Guest Commentary


Hendry County experiencing 'Survey Mania'


By Janice Groves, Executive
Director
Hendry County Economic
Development Council
Over the past several years
small business in Henry County
has been inundated with survey
requests. Whether it is for the
Economic Development Council
Office, a state agency, a consult-
ing agency doing a feasibility
study for a developer or for other
enterprise the small business
person feels as if he gets bom-
barded with requests that don't
do him any good. And yet, each
and every person that contacts a
business to participate in a sur-
vey has a specific purpose and
use in mind for the information
they are collecting.
With Hendry County's
growth and potential develop-
ment many questions arise. Will
the county be ready for the
growth that is coming? How will
Hendry County face the issues
that will certainly come forward
in the months and years to


come? Will Hendry County have
the infrastructure, technology,
money, and development plan
to fulfill small business growth
needs? Will small business be
prepared to face the potential
growth and demands on servic-
es and infrastructure?
Communication is the way
Hendry County and the business
community can answer those
questions: the survey is the
source. It may be time consum-
ing, but it is the most reasonable
and effective way to gather infor-
mation, especially since our
business community is so
diverse. Not every business
needs or wants the same servic-
es, not every business asks the
same questions, and one
answer does not fit all; however,
a well designed survey can be
beneficial in various ways.
Since July Hendry County
Economic Development Council
has been contacting small busi-
nesses throughout the county
and asking them to participate in
a survey. This multi-purpose sur-
vey can be the conduit to find


solutions to many of the issues
facing small business in Hendry
County.
Last spring Hendry County
participated in a Visioning
Process through public input
meetings that were held in
Clewiston and LaBelle. The
meetings were well attended by
interested parties and the public
had much to say in all areas of
county and community develop-
ment. A long list of needs, bene-
fits, and desires resulted from
these meetings.
One way to address many of
the issues that were discussed at
these meetings is by surveying
the business community using a
survey designed to deem
answers to the issues the public
felt needed attention. The survey
currently being done covers
many areas. It is designed to
include company information,
product services, the market, the
industry, management, work-
force, technology, utility and
community services, plus it
gives you an opportunity to
express what issues are most


important to you. Once the sur-
veys are complete the informa-
tion will be compiled and a
work plan will be designed.
Trends will be identified with a
plan to find solutions to the
issues most prevalent. The
answers may be through educa-
tional opportunities, workshops,
networking, and other ways not
yet identified.
Many small businesses have
already contributed their
answers. If you have not yet
been contacted expect to be
soon. By participating in the sur-
veys, you are taking the first step
in helping Hendry County Eco-
nomic Development Council
help you. One of our many pur-
poses is to help small business
through expansion, retention, or
creation of a business. With
your input you help us to find
ways to help you. Please cooper-
ate and allow us around 20 min-
utes of your time when you are
contacted to participate in the
Economic Development Council
Small Business Survey.


By Sean Moore
Greetings! I know the next few
weeks are going to be nuts as we
try to get all our shopping done and
I hope that as you are driving to
malls, outlet stores and coastal
shopping centers that you stop and
support your local economy too!
Yes, I know that we do not have all
the stores that you may find in a big
city. Yes, I. know that we do not
have a four-story, 200 store mega-
plex that has a movie theater, food
court and valet parking.
I can tell you what we do have
though. We have your friends and
neighbors that own these local
stores. We have your brothers, your
sisters and your children that need
those dollar bills, checks, and credit
card receipts with the name of a
local store on them. I am not dumb
(comments to yourselves please!),
I realize that our shopping options
can be limited for specialty items or
designer clothes, but we have the
vast majority of everything else.
Many stores have the ability to
order things foryou that they do not
carry it in stock, if you will just ask.
I know that what I am saying
may come off as the Chamber guy
trying to promote Chamber mem-
bers and I am guilty as charged in
that capacity. It extends much
deeper than that though and it has
a ripple effect that will lead to big-
ger and better things. If you spend
more money here, the local busi-
nesses have the ability to possibly
expand or the owners can open
another business thus hiring more
people. As more jobs are created,
more people will want to move to
Clewiston because it is a nice place
to live in addition to the expanding
job market. As a city's population
grows, those large retail chain
stores look at the demographics
and when they are confident a
store can be sustained in that mar-
ket, they also come arid join the
party. If trends of that nature contin-
ue, eventually you will.have all
those restaurants, and shopping
malls, and mega-plexes and no


traveling. Who knew that buying
those designer fake eyebrows at a
local beauty shop instead of Eye-
brows or the Eyebrow Hutt could
have such a huge impact!
I wanted to give recognition to
MCM Paint and Flooring. I work
with a guy that helps with the paint-
ing of Cane Field and was told that
on a normal day it takes about 5 gal-
lons of paint to paint everything.
The yard markers, numbers, and
end zone are all part of the weekly
painting. He told me last week it
was going to take over 60 gallons of
paint to get the field done, a lot of
paint! When I got to the game on
Friday I found out that it ended up
taking over 100 gallons of paint to
design and decorate the playing sur-
face, all donated by MCM Paint and
Flooring. For that donation, I want
to tell them "thank you." They did
not ask to be recognized. I am find-
ing that many local businesses do
not seek or even enjoy the spotlight.
I, on the other hand, will spread
good news about my Chamber
members like a 16-year-old girl with
the latest gossip (I wonder how
long it's going to be before that lines
comes back to haunt me)!
I know of many businesses
have done a lot this year and I have
mentionedisome of them in this
space, but much like MCM they
have asked me not to say anything.
Some people prefer to stay behind
the scenes and give silently and
support in other ways. I know of
many businesses that would have
loved to have the cheerleaders
come and paint blue and gold on
their windows, but because they
are not on the main road they did
not get the opportunity. I know of
others that have given time, money,
food or items to be sold or auc-
tioned off as fund raisers, but again
do not seek the attention.
These are just a few more rea-
sons why I am asking you this holi-
day season, to support the people
in our town so that they may keep
supporting all of us. See you next
week and GO TIGERS!

'Tis the season to switch your Medicare plan


By Grace-Marie Turner
It's that time of year again,
when gift-giving, good food and
family get-togethers are on all
our minds. But amidst the hustle
and bustle of holiday activities,
seniors enrolled in the new
Medicare prescription drug
plans need to be thinking about
whether they want to stay with
their current plan. For those
interested in making a switch,
now is the time.
It's also the time for seniors
who didn't pick a Medicare drug
plan before last May's cut-off
date to enroll. Every month that
seniors delay costs them an addi-
tional 1 percent in premiums.
Between Nov. 15, and Dec.
31, every year, Medicare hosts an
open enrollment period in
which seniors can reexamine
their current prescription drug
coverage and switch or sign up
for the first time. (Those with
retiree coverage through their
former employers generally
don't need to do anything if their
employer offers a qualifying Part
D plan.)
This yearly period allows sen-
iors to take advantage of the
many competing offerings pro-
vided under Medicare's drug


plan and pick the one that's best
for them.
The open-enrollment period
also keeps plan providers on
their toes.
Knowing that beneficiaries
have the option to switch to a
competitor means that insurers
are always trying to come up
with better plans which results
in lower prices and a broader
array of choices.
This option to choose
between a host of private insur-
ers is what makes Medicare Part
D so different from other govern-
ment programs.
By leveraging the power of
private-sector competition,
Medicare Part D provides more
drugs than the frequently vaunt-
ed programs in Europe or Cana-
da. Part D is also vastly superior
to the drug benefit program run
by the Department of Veterans
Affairs, which uses a more tradi-
tional government-run model.
Almost 90 percent of all pre-
scription medications on the
market are currently available
through Part D.
That's in sharp contrast to
other healthcare systems across
the world. In France, for exam-
ple, the government recently

asked doctors to prescribe fewer
medicines to cut costs. In Ger-
many, many of the most-innova-
tive drugs aren't reimbursable.
And even in the United States,
the Department of Veterans
Affairs refuses to cover many of
the newest, most-effective phar-
maceuticals unless other drugs
are first tried.
When one compares any of
these programs to Part D, there's
simply no comparison.
That's probably why most
seniors are pleased with their
current Part D plans. Earlier this
year, the Kaiser Family Founda-
tion reported that more than
eight in 10 seniors enrolled in the
service are satisfied with the
plan they picked; that their initial
experiences have been positive;
and three out of four would pick
the same plan again.
In fact, the drug benefit is
actually offering more and better
choices than anyone anticipated
when Congress crafted the pro-
gram. Although the government
estimated that seniors would pay
$37 a month in premiums for
their Medicare drug coverage,
the average premium has turned
out to be much lower just $25
a month.


These choices have resulted
in some great deals for health-
care consumers.
Some prescription drug
plans, for example, cost as little
as $5 a month.
Others eliminate the $250
deductible before coverage kicks
in.
Many plans are providing
drug coverage in the infamous
"donut hole" the gap in the
standard plan where insurance
coverage is interrupted between
moderate and high drug expens-
es. As a result, the majority of
America's seniors 72 percent
- now have some drug cover-
age in the donut hole.
Medicare Part D's success
owes much to the many options
it provides to beneficiaries. This
holiday season, seniors who
aren't fully satisfied with their
coverage should take advantage
of those options by switching to
the plan that's best for them.
And for those who haven't
signed up yet, this is the time.

Mold spots on drying gourds
are part of the natural
process. As long as the outer
shell remains hard, mold will
not damage the gourd.


Smaller gourds make inter-
esting vases for dried flower
arranging. Carved grape
leaves at the top and ebony
wood stain will make the
gourd look like pottery.


Birdhouse gourds are popu-
lar as lawn decorations as
well as for homes for the
birds. They can be decorated
using a number of methods
including painting, staining,
carving and woodburning
such as this sunflower mod-
eled by one from the garden.


..."W, v-- .1N 4-)I-I -- ". -j- '- W --,a -V".A-.A "- ,. l-M ----
Gourds can be dried by putting them on wood pallets for air circulation. The first step in the
drying process is the outer layer which takes only a week or so. The remaining drying
process could take as long as three months.


Gourds are easy to grow and decorate


By D. Hamilton
INI
Decorative gourds, often seen at
local craft fairs, are easy to grow in
Florida. These plants, native to
America, can be used to make col-
orful holiday decorations, or can be
turned into bird houses.
Gourds have a
rich past
According to the American
Gourd Society Web site, the first
planting and use of gourds dates
back thousands of years. Native
Americans, Africans, and ancient
Egyptians cultivated gourds for
their usefulness as utensils, storage
containers, musical instruments,
and as decorative items.
There are even legends and sto-
ries of references to gourds in
songs from the days of slavery.
Slaves planning to make their way
through to the Underground Rail-
road to the north sang songs like,
"Follow the drinking gourd." Tlie
"drinking gourd" referred to the Big
Dipper constellation which they
would follow from the south,
northwest from Mississippi to
Alabama and eventually north to
freedom.
In some cultures, gourds are still
used as they were in ancient Asia
for medicinal purposes with high
nutritional values in. the seeds,
roots, stems, leaves, and flowers.
What is a Gourd?
Gourds are part of Cucurbita-
ceous Family which includes
pumpkins, squash, zucchini, mel-
ons and cucumbers. It is the "fruit"
produced from a vine having white
blossoms, both male and female.
The hard-shell variety has pock-
Sets of seeds which are attached to
the inside of the gourd. As it dries
out, the outer shell gets its' wood-
like exterior and the seed pockets
inside dry out and can be shaken
loose.
There are many varieties of
gourds numbering in the dozens.
The most popular gourd shapes for
arts and crafts are bottle gourds,
birdhouse gourds, kettle-shaped,
pear, apple (which really looks like
an apple), and even a bushel gourd


which can grow to 100 pounds.
Grow your own
Gourds are not difficult to grow,
but you will need a large area away
from any smaller more delicate
plants as they tend to overpower
anything in their path.
Planting can begin as early as
late January in South Florida with
the first signs of life in just a couple
of weeks.
Space seeds at least four feet
apart; planting one seed about a
Half to three-quarters inch deep in a
well-drained mound of soil. The
plants will start to erupt bearing
large, broad leaves. The vines will
travel and tendrils will appear. If
you have limited space, vines can
be cut back at 10 feet before they
begin to flower. Keep the main root
of the plant watered daily, especial-
ly during the hotter, drier months.
(Here's a tip: Put a plant stake in the
ground next to the rooted plant so
that you can find it since the areas
around flourishing gourds vines
can get quite weedy). Fertilizers
such as organic matter and stan-
dard 6-6-6 seem to work well giving
the plants a'boost' just before they
bloom. Fertilizers with high nitro-
gen content such as 10-10-10, will
burn the broad leaves.
After the vines have blossomed,
the gourds will take shape.
It takes about two to three
months for the smaller gourd vari-
eties to complete their growth.
Some of the larger varieties may
take up to six months doubling
every week before reaching their
full size.
Harvesting and
drying gourds
Gourds can be harvested from
the vine when the stems turn
brown or just left to dry right on the
vines. It is not uncommon to see
gourds drying in a field after the
vines have died off.
Gourds that have been cut from
the vines at least four inches from
the fruit, can also be dried on a
wooden pallet until the seeds have
dried out inside.
During the drying process, mold
may grow on the gourds. A simple
solution of one cup of regular


bleach to five gallons of water
would help to retard the mold from
growing and also speed the drying
process a bit. Rotate the gourds and
wipe them down with the bleach
solution once a week as they dry.
Be careful to keep drying gourds
from touching others. This will
cause them to get 'rot spots' and
could cause them to be unusable.
Gourd crafts
For craft purposes, scraping the
outer greenish-colored layer off
with a butter knife (not serrated
edge), will give the dried gourds a
creamy, light finish without all the
mold spots. Take care not to cut
into the gourd while scraping. It
could cause the gourd to rot before
it dries.
Some gourds will take several
weeks, even months to dry before
they can be used.
After the gourds have dried,
removing the seeds can be tricky,
especially if you will be making a
new home for birds.
There are specific tools
designed to clean out the inside
materials including the seeds, how-
ever, a simple small, narrow pry
bar with a handle works well to
loosen seeds and leftover dried
pulp so that it can be emptied into a
container. When cleaning out the
inside of the gourd, be sure to work
. in an area that is well ventilated or
use a dust mask to keep from inhal-
ing the mold dust.
Depending on what you plan to
do with your dried gourds will
determine how large the hole
should be. If you plan to cut the
hole to accommodate birds, the
hole size ranges from just one and
one-eighth inches in diameter up to
two full inches. Some birds, such as
robins will only nest in a cavity
when they can see all around them.
For this reason, larger arch-shaped
openings cut into three sides of the
gourd are preferred.
Gourd birdhouses are also a
favorite of the Purple Martin. The
holes for this type of birdhouse
require a special crescent shape to
protect the inhabitants from other
birds.
There are many high speed cut-
ting tools available to cut into the


thick, hardened shell of a gourd.
Drilling a center hole as a starter
and cutting the rest of the hole out
with a small powered carving tool
gives great results. If you will be
hanging your gourd as a birdfeeder
or house, be sure to drill a hole
straight through about an inch or
so from the top. Lightly sand the
surface and smooth the opening
with fine-grit sandpaper.
Decorate your gourds
Decorating gourds can pose a
problem how to decorate them?
They can be decorated with nearly
every medium. Gourds can be col-
ored with stains; painted with
acrylics, enamels, pen and ink.
They can also be carved with intri-
cate patterns, and wood-burned.
Even if you're not an artist pat-
terns and drawings can be trans-
ferred onto the gourd by using
transfer sheets. Coating the back of
the drawing or picture with a char-
coal pencil then, using a pen to go
over the outline of the drawing will
also transfer the image onto the
gourd.
The medium of choice will be
up to the individual artist. Be sure if
your gourd creation will be outside,
to coat it with a clear polyurethane
finish, repeated every year or so to
help protect it from the elements:
Decorated gourds will last for many
years with just minimal care.

School Happenings


Eastside Elementary
BookWeek
Eastside students celebrated
Book Week with an outstanding
performance of "The Three Mess-
keteers" sponsored by the Fantasy
Theatre Factory from Miami. Fanta-
sy Theatre is dedicated to creating
original quality theatre programs
for children and families making
these programs accessible to more
people of all cultures and back-
grounds. The performance includ-
ed hilarious characters, which
lived in the land of Loquat. Their
command, from the queen, was to
rescue valuable resources and
enforce environmental justice.
Water conservation, land and
water pollution were only a few
environment issues addressed in
the rollicking adventure. The
actors interacted with the students
to make this adventure both enjoy-
able as well as educational. In the
end, the Three Messketeers and
the students discover it's every-
one's responsibility to clean up our
environment.
Throughout the week, students
in Kindergarten through second
grade had the opportunity to read
books for fun as they came to the
media center and had a book pic-
nic..Students in third through fifth
grade continued to develop their
unit on New Mexico's Native
Americans by making teepees,
adobe villages, weaving, and bead
art. Their artifacts were displayed
on the tables at Easiside's faculty
luncheon on Friday.
Jack Hartmann visits
The students from Eastside
were treated to a special program
on Monday, November 13th. Jack
Hartmann came and did a fabu-
lous program to all of the students
at Eastside. This special treat was a
result of all the hard work the stu-
dents did last year that resulted in
Eastside receiving an "A" Ior the
2005-2006 school year.
Teachers all across the United
States and around the world are
Jack Hartmann's strongest sup-
porters. They appreciate and value
Jack's Hop 2 It Music because it's
educationally "on-target" with
state and national standards and
benchmarks. "I use Jack Hart-
mann's songs everyday to
enhance my lessons and Jack
Hartmann's songs are my classes'
favorites" are only some of the
wonderful comments teachers
make about how much his music
is used in classrooms everyday.
Another most important quality
,of Jack Hartmann's Hop 2 It Music
'is that teachers truly appreciate his
tremendous diversity in musical
styles. Every song is unique with a
cool kid-friendly, reggae, hip-hop,
Latin, rap, pop, country, or rock
musical arrangement and produc-
tion. And Jack strongly believes
and follows the best recording
practice to make sure all the words
are clearly heard. Mr.. Hartman
says "I feel a responsibility to sing
my words, letters, and vowel
sounds very clearly and correctly
so children develop a strong foun-
dation of our language and how it


works." His classroom classic
song Learning Letter Sounds and
his fantastic new letter sound song
Workout to the Letter Sounds, are
widely regarded by teachers as the
best songs anywhere to help chil-
dren learn their letter sounds.
He writes and. produces his
own songs and you can always
count on Jack's songs for a won-
derful beat and super melody. Mr.
Hartman composes 40 to 50 new
songs each year, writes children's
books and presents conference
keynotes and workshops all
around the country. Also, he loves
entertaining and educating over
100,000 children annually at chil-
dren's concerts and special family
events. In recent years Jack has
formed the Hop 2 It Band, a five
member live band that performs
his songs at special concert dates
in Florida. (http://www.jackhart-
mann.com)
Several members of Eastside's
,PTO met at the school on Satur-.
day morning, Nov. 18, and
cleaned up the Butterfly Garden.
We want to thank everyone who
came out to help get our garden
all cleaned up and looking nice
again. Students, make sure you
check out the Butterfly Garden
when you get a chance.
Fourth grade students will
begin "Writing Camp" after the
Thanksgiving holiday. The stu-
dents will attend "Writing Camp"
on Monday and Tuesdays after
school. They will be dismissed at 4
p.m. If you have not signed the
permission form, please do so as
soon as possible and return it to
your child's teacher. This "Writing
'Camp" will help get the fourth
grade students ready for Florida
Writes, which is given the first
week in February. The "Writing
SCamp" will be for approximately
six weeks, ending the first week in
February. We are encouraging ALL
fourth grade students to take
advantage of this wonderful writ-
ing opportunity.
There will be no after-school
program the week of Dec. 11
through Dec. 15. This is the last
week of school before the Christ-
mas holidays. Christmas break will
be from Dec. 16 through Jan. 7.
Students will report back to school
on Jan. 8. Reminder notices will be
sent home next month.
Please be sure your child reads
for at least 20 minutes each night.
Reading plays a very important
role in all other subject areas, and
we encourage our students to
read, read, read. Students in third
and fourth grades should be prac-
ticing multiplication facts each
night as well.

Poinsettia -A Christmas Star i
n~ll~Srn~lrl B~~


By Gene McAvoy
Hendry County
Horticulture Agent
A ,z.- i


Poinsettias are most widely
known as a colorful indoor orna-
mental potted plant for the Christ-
mas trade. Here in South Florida,
they can also be used as outdoor
landscape plants and grow into
quite large shrubs. Poinsettias are
native to Mexico and Central
America, where they can grow to
be 12 -15 feet tall.
The poinsettia, Euphorbia pul-
cherrima Willd., is a member of
the Euphorbiaceae or spurge
family. The name poinsettia is
in honor of Joel R. Poinsett of
Greenville, South Carolina, who
during his tenure as the United
States Ambassador to Mexico,
introduced this plant from Mexico
in 1825. Poinsettias are some-
times referred to as Christmas
star, which is from its rosette like
arrangement of brightly colored
bracts that form at the ends of the
stems in the winter months
around Christmas time. In Span-
ish, the poinsettia.is known as
floorr de pascuas."
The showy part of the poinset-
tia, which is commonly referred
to as the flower,'actually consists
of modified leaves which are cor-
rectly called bracts. The bracts are
typically red but can vary depend-
ing on the cultivar. Cultivars Sport-
ing pink, cream, white, pale green
and even mixed colors have been
developed by plant breeders. The
actual flowers are insignificant lit-
tle nubs that are arranged above
the colorful bracts in umbel-like
groups consisting of a single
female flower surrounded by a
number of male flowers which
are reduced to stamens only.
Poinsettias are traditionally
grown as pot plants for the Christ-
mas holiday season. Poinsettias
are often used as' landscape
plants in south and central Flori-
da. Poinsettias are woody peren-
nials and when grown outdoors
usually begin blooming (bracts
showing color) as early as
Thanksgiving. The colorful bracts
are retained until March or even
later if the plants are not exposed
to freezing temperatures.
The purchase of a poinsettia is
a once-a-year event for most peo-
pie. Most people don't know
what to look for in a quality poin-
settia. Here are a few basic tips on
what to look for in a poinsettia.
.These pointers can make a differ-
*ence between a plant- that will


Submitted photo/Eric Samora
James Barrett, horticulturist with the University of Florida's
Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, checks new vari-
eties of poinsettias in Gainesville. In 2000, more than 20 new
varieties were evaluated by researchers and consumers for
commercial release. Some have tasty names such as Santa
Claus Candy, Christmas Cookie and-Plum Pudding.


look good for the season and one
whose appeal quickly fades. If
possible, select a plant that has
green foliage nearly to the soil
line. Older plants that have suf-
fered unfavorable conditions will
have usually experienced exces-
sive leaf drop, Foliage drop can be
caused by fluctuating tempera-
tures, gas fumes, soil problems,
and plant pests. Next look in the
center of the bracts and you will
see the true flowers called
cyathia. This tiny luster of flow-
ers is one of the best indicators of
a poinsettia's freshness. Select
only plants with small tight green
button like floral parts. These little
flowers will eventually develop
into open flowers. If the poinsettia
is already producing pollen, the
plant is past its peak. This indi-
cates that a portion of the plants
useful display life has already
passed and the bracts will begin
fade early than a similar plant
which has not yet begun produc-
ing pollen. Poinsettia prices are
normally based on the number of
bracts and the size of the plant
and bracts.
Now that you ha\e selected or
received a beautiful poinsettia or


more, how do you care for it?
Poinsettias can be kept looking
attractive far into January or even
February if properly cared for.
Since most potted'poinsettias are
the product of the greenhouse,
they should be provided as much
natural light as possible. At least
six hours of bright, but not direct
light is required for best results.
Poor light or a rapid change in
light regime can cause leaf drop.
Avoid placing the plant near win-
dows, doors, fans, and heating
vents since poinsettias cannot tol-
erate drafts, which may trigger
leaf drop. Poinsettias prefer moist
soil, so water regularly. Over
watering or allowing the soil to
dry out completely can cause
.leaves to drop. Poinsettias will do
best in the mpre humid areas of
the home, such as the kitchen,
otherwise .they can be placed
above but not in a tray of water to
increase humidity. It is also wise
to place plants away from busy
areas where they will be brushed
against and bruised. Fortunately,
the newer varieties of poinsettia
are fairly hardy and will tolerate a
bit of abuse
In the spring, \when the bracts

begin to fade, the plants should
be kept cool and dry for a few
weeks. After this resting period,
prune the plant back to about six
to eight inches high. Remove any
remaining colored bracts and
leave three to four green leaves
per shoot and restart growth by
watering and fertilizing with a bal-
anced complete fertilizer every
few weeks. By Ma~ -June, the
plant should display a lot of new
growth. At this time, the poinset-
tia should be transplanted to a 2-4
inch larger in, diameter pot and all
the shoot tips pruned off. Two to
three leaves should be left on
each shoot. Fertilize every three to
four weeks and keep, the plant
pinched back regularly until Sep-
tember. In late September, the
plant must be given a special dark
treatment to promote flowering.
Poinsettias are among a group
of plants known as short-day
plants. Short-day plants require a
long dark period to initiate the for-
mation of flower buds. Poinsettias
need 9 to 10 hours of light with 14
to 15 hours of darkness to pro-
mote flowering. In nature flower
buds are set around October as
the night become increasingly
longer. In the house, the short day
a long night regime must be pro-
duced artificially. This can be
done by putting the plants in the
closet or covering them w ith a
completely opaque cloth, a box
or a black garbage bag. Poinset-
tias are very finicky about pho-
toperiod. Any interruption of the
dark period may result in a failure
to blossom. By December, the
plant should have initiated flower-
ing and the development of col-
ored bracts. Many pink and bicol-
or cultivars may revert to red or
white when grown inside. Once
this occurs, the dark treatments
can be stopped and the plants
treated like normal house plants
again. If handled properly, your
poinsettia should, produce beauti-
ful blooms for Christmas.
I wish you all a Merry Christ-
mas and the best ior the New
Year.

released by FHP, the vehicle ran
over the victim's head, killing
him almost immediately.
Nothing is known of the vehi-

witnesses have yet been found
to help investigators fill in the
details of the incident.
As a result of his status, the

Tigers whip Lions, head to state championship


By Jeff Barwick
CLEWISTON Everyone
expected a close game and every-
one expected the defenses to be
tough on both sides of the ball.
But none of the 5,000 plus that
showed up at Cane Field on Fri-
day night, were probably aware
of what was in store for them.
They got to watch one of the best
defensive games in Clewiston
High School Tiger history as
Clewiston controlled the game
clock on offense and the Tiger
defense dominated the Chami-
nade Lions in a 7-3 victory. The
Tigers now get to take their 13-0
record to Dolphin Stadium in
Miami Lakes on Saturday night for
the Class 2A State Championship
game against Jacksonville Bolles,
also 13-0.
The Chaminade contest fig-
ured to be sparked with offensive
and defensive explosions. Both
squads were averaging over 30
points per game during the sea-
son and they both had solid
defenses. But on this night, the
scoring just didn't happen as
Chaminade offense had prob-
lems moving the ball and the
Tiger offense missed several scor-
ing opportunities after good
drives. The.Tiger offense still had
the will power to score, albeit just
once, and that was enough. The
real story goes way beyond the
final score posted on the score-
board as the Tigers and their fans
went wild at the closing horn.
This was a game won by the
defense, the Tigers strong suit all
season.
On this night, it was senior
linebacker Carl Whitehead's
chance to shine. A solid per-
former all year, Whitehead was all
over the field with nine tackles,
three assists and two running
sacks. But also like all season, it
was the cohesive effort of the
entire group that made the differ-
ence. This is 15 or so Tigers who
play better as a team than any
group in recent memory. No real
stars because none of them really
want to be a star. They simply
want to play and win as a team.
They are not only extremely well
coached but they absorb and con-
sistently apply that coaching.
Defensive .ends Delvin Hughes
(seven solos) and Johnny Jones
(four tackles) also had great
nights, with Jones blocking a key
fourth down pass attempt. Line-
backer Collin Ricketts had four
tackles and three assists. Corner-
back Omar Smith also played well,
with five tackles and tackle Willie
Armstrong had three, including a
key quarterback sack. Senior line-
backer David Pope added 3 tack-
les, two assists and a running
sack. Cornerback Jasper Hunter
contributed 3 tackles, an assist, a
running sack and an 18-yard inter-
ception return. But the statistics
are only just that. This was a team
effort with defenders taking on
Division I prospect blockers head-
on all night and allowing team-
mates to make the plays.
The Tiger offense had 3 sus-
tained drives and ate up huge
chunks of clock time to keep the
ball away from the Lions' offense.

Tiger John Melton pulls in a pass for an 11 yard gain.


Tailback Collin Ricketts tip-toes down the sidelines for a 15
yard run.


The best example would be their
possession to open the second
half when they drove the ball 50
yards on 11 plays and used over
six minutes of clock time. Simply,
the offense's control of the game
clock allowed the vaunted Tiger
defense to stay fresh and, when
called upon, they excelled. They
were dominant all night and
allowed the talented Chaminade
squad only 179 yards total offense
on 53 plays.
The Tigers were driving for a
score early in the second period
on series that began at their 28.
From the Lion 18, Tiger quarter-
bti:l: Jjr-i. Combass hit wideout
Sim Putnam in the flats and Put-
nam turned it up field, weaving his
way towards the end zone. At the
5-yard line, he was hit and fum-
bled. Tiger John Melton had his
hands on the ball but never had
possession and Chaminade recov-
ered at their 1-foot line. The Tiger
defense gave up one first down to
the Lions and then forced a punt
that went out of bounds at the
Chaminade 42. On six plays, the


Tigers got to the Lion 16 but ran
out of downs. Tiger kicker Will
Davis came on to try a 33-yard
field goal. The attempt was partial-
ly blocked by Chaminade.
Clewiston got their only score
of the night late in the half. Cham-
inade had been stopped on their
38-yard line and went into punt
formation. A fake punt play was
called and the ball was direct
snapped to the blocking back but
it glanced off his hands and over
his head. The punter picked up
the ball and was immediately
swarmed by Tigers, fumbling the
ball. Another Lion player grabbed
the loose ball and retreated look-
ing for an opening. He was tack-
led back at the Lions 13 yard line.
The second half opened with
the Tigers making the long sus-
tained drive.
The series was aided by a
bizarre play. The Tigers, facing a
fourth and long from midfield,
sent Jared Combass into punt for-
mation. Chaminade's Justin
Woodard fielded the punt and
went down the visitor's sideline


for an apparent 95-yard touch-
down. But, the Lions' pass rush
had roughed Combass during the
punt giving the Tigers an auto-
matic first down. If the roughing
the kicker penalty had not
occurred, an illegal Chaminade
block at the outset of the run
would have still nullified the
touchdown. The Tigers were also
flagged on the play for shoving a
Chaminade player in the back.
The net result of all this was a five
yard gain for the Tigers and an
automatic first down to keep the
drive alive.
The drive finally sputtered out
at the Lions' 19 and another field
goal attempt from 37 yards was
wide to the left.
The Lions got the ball with
3:07 left in the third and drove 46
yards, their only sustained drive of
the night, to the Tiger 10. Kicker
Lugue Barrientos then nailed a
27-yard field goal with 9:12 left in
the game. After a two first down
drive that used up about four min-
utes from the clock, Clewiston
punted the ball away but the
defense held Chaminade on three
downs and had the ball punted
right back to them. The offense
then put together a 7 play drive
that ran the clock down to 1:12
before they punted. As the game
clock ticked down to the final sec-
onds, a desperate pass attempt
was picked off by Tiger corner-
back Jasper Hunter and returned
18 yards.
With only 11 seconds remain-
ing and Chaminade having no
time outs remaining, the Tigers
went crazy in celebration. The on-
field antics cost the Tigers with
two unsportsmanlike conduct
penalties. One was for the overall
celebration and another for a
Tiger having removed his helmet
while on the field. The Tigers also
had purposefully taken a delay of
game penalty prior to their last
punt in exercising their using up
the clock strategy. Discounting
those infractions, which were
meaningless to the outcome of
the game, the Tigers were only
flagged 5 times for 30 yards.
"The defense has been the
strongpoint all season," Tiger
coach Larry Antonacci said.
"These kids played their hearts
out tonight. They never let up and
to hold a great team like Chami-
nade to three points is fantastic."
Tiger sophomore tailback Dar-
ris Hughes had 101 yards on 21
tries on the night and said, "Man,
this means everything to us. In
every building in town, they've
got our names and numbers on
them. In Clewiston, football is in
our heart."
The Tigers will need another
top-level performance in the
championship game against
undefeated Jacksonville Bolles.
The Bulldogs have a solid passing

attack and have really not been in
a close contest all season. Game


time will be 7 p.m. and a great
turnout of fans is needed to cheer
on the Tigers who return to the
State Championship game for the
first time since 2001. Earlier jour-
neys to the final level were in 1997
and in 1982, when the Tigers
played Jefferson County to a 13-
13 tie and were co-champions.

Local teams head to Dolphin Stadium


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY It has been a great
ride for the Glades area football
teams, which include Pahokee,
Glades Central and Glades Day. All
of the hard work, from the off-sea-
son lifting sessions to training
camp and hard working practices,
have paid off.
Now for Pahokee and Glades
Day, the teams have one last hur-
dle to climb to being the state
champions. For Glades Central,
the team has to play two more
games to cinch the state title.
It may be possible to see all of
the Glades teams to come out on
top this weekend at Dolphin Stadi-
um.


The Pahokee Blue Devils con-
tinued their impressive run to the
state championship game, this
year being the fourth consecutive
year it has clone so. Pahokee rolled
over Cardinal Mooney on the road,
48-0.
It was done through their smart
offense and defense games, as
well as a great reduction in sloppy
mistakes.
Janoris Jenkins scored three
rushing touchdowns, while
Anthony Sheppard had two touch-
down passes and ran for another
score.
On defense, Pahokee forced
two fumbles and made three inter-
ceptions off Cardinal Mooney's
Vinny Corona, including a Dwight
Bentley pick off Corona at Paho-
kee's !-yard line as Cardinal


Mooney was attempting to tie the
game after being clown 7-0 in the
first quarter.
In all, Pahokee allowed only 21
total yards and gained 374 of their
own. That's a textbook recipe to
get into the state championship
game.
Pahokee will play Ocala-Trinity
Catholic on Dec. 2 in the Class 2B
championship.
The Glades Day Gators also
made their way into the champi-
onship game by stomping over the
Miami-Dade Christian Crusaders
on the road, 34-12. The Gators are
in the state championship for the
first time in 10 years.
The Gators had 264 rushing
yards, led by Cedrick Taylor. They
will play Tallahassee-North Florida
Christian at 7 p.m. on Dec. 1 at Dol-


phin Stadium.
In Naples, the Glades Central
Raiders claimed their second
straight Class 3A regional title by
beating Naples, 24-14. They will
play Bartow in the state semifinal
on Dec. 1.
Bryan Mann had 113 passing
yards, including a title-clinching
fourth quarter touchdown pass to
Travis Benjamin with 2:20 left.
Mann added 63 rushing yards and
a touchdown run.
Running to the championship
game is great for the Glades teams.
Here's hoping that the three
schools finish the job this week-
end at Dolphin Stadium, with
Glades Central doing its part to
make to the big game at Dolphin
Stadium the weekend of Dec. 8-9.

CLEWISTON The Bass
Busters Team Tournament Trails
held their End-of-Year Classic in
Clewiston on Nov. 18 and 19.

the outcome of this event.
The results of this event were
as follows. First place for the two
days total weight and 'Biggest
Bass' of the weekend went to the
team of Jessie Allen of Clewiston,
and Tennessee of Okeechobee

toys (any value). The tournament
runs from safelight until 3 p.m.
There is no age limit on anglers
and the limit is five (5) fish per
team. All fish must be at least 14

This tournament is held each
an every year as a thank you to the

their biggest bass was 4.41
pounds. Third place overall for

Grass using the Black Grape


our tournaments during the year
and supporting our anglers. The
tournament gives the anglers a
way to give back to the communi-
ty by making sure the children in
the Clewiston area have some-
thing special for Christmas.
So, buy your two toys and
sharpen your hooks. We will be
waiting for you on Dec. 10 to sign

'We wouldn't be anywhere but Pahokee'


By MaryAnn Morris
Three sisters, Iris, Mary and
Lucille were born and raised in
Pahokee. They have stories to share.
"We all married and moved
away with our husbands. Now that
they have passed away, we all
came home. The three of usJive
here in the same,house we grew
up in," said Lucille.
Their parents, well-known in
Pahokee, were Carmen Salvatore
and Ella Woodward Salvatore.
They moved there in 1917. But the
story doesn't start there. I
According to Iris and Mary, their
father,. Carmen'Salvatore came to
America with his mother and his
uncle from Ricighiano, Italy in 1900,
when he was five years old. Not
Through Ellis Island, but through the
Battery in New York, since they had
papers. They settled in New Jersey
where they worked to earn the
funds for passage for the rest of the
family to come to the United States.
"Everyone in the familyworked,
starting when they were twelve or
so," said Mary. "The boys worked
delivering papers and things like
that and I know one of my great-
aunts had job sewing. Daddy had a
real Italian father. Grandpa was the
kind that if you left home with a
dime, you'd better comes home
with twelve cents. Everyone
worked and brought all their
moneyhome."
"After he came home from
France after World War 1, he worked
in a paint store, then he heard there
Was really good work -stone work
in Florida. Grandpa told him he
would teach him to cut stone, so
Daddy came down to Florida, to
Coral Gables and worked on the
mansion, Vizcaya," said Iris.
"He met Mama down there at
the beach one day. They didn't
know each other's names, but later
they told us, '\hen I saw him, I
knew that was the man I am going
to marry' and Daddy said the
same thing. So they N\ere married
in 1917 when Mama w\as 16 and
Daddy was 22.
"Mama invited Daddy to Sunday
lunch one time, the family wasn't
home so she asked her uncle if she
could bring Daddy to his house and
they would have lunch with him.
But her uncle said, 'No, you invited

"This tree was here when Daddy and Mama came. The roots are up where the water used to
come and they call trees like this mother trees," said Mary. The house built by and lived in
by the Salvatores since 1917 can be seen in the background. Part of it was re-built by the
Red Cross after the 1928 hurricane.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history






him, you feed him.'
"Well she had a pumpkin, so
she boiled it up and Daddyate it.
"\Vhen they moved here to
Pahokee. Daddy would do.any
kind of work. He farmed some,
and for awhile, he would drive up
to Stuart (it was all sand roads) and
bring back ice in a wagon. There
was no ice here and he'd sell it. I
remember him talking about all
the times he'd get stuck in the sand


or the mud and had to unload all
the ice alongside the road to dig the
wagon out, and then load it all up
again to get it here."
"Back then the lake was beauti-
ful. We'd swim and play in it all the
time and it was so clear, you could
see your feet," said Mary.
This house was so close to the
water. When the wind blew this
way, the house is up off the ground,
you see, the water would come
right under the house."
"The wind and the action of the
water brought the sand here to
make up the ridge'here. When the
wind blew the other way, we
would go out and play on the sand-
bars the lake left out there in back
of the house," said Iris.
"We wouldn't live anywhere
else. We wish the dike weren't
here. Mama really fought the dike,
but what could you do? No one lis-
telied. Now they're ruined the lake


with the dike," said Iris.
"I hate that dike," said Mary.
"I'm not afraid of storms. When
the news people kept asking us if
we weren't, scared, we told
them, 'we aren't the scared kind
of people!' I think they wanted
us to say different."
Pahokee, in the 1930s had 16
restaurants and 2,735 people to
Belle Glade's 1,043.
"The farmers all lived here with
their families on the farms. Not like
now, where the people who own
the farms might not even live in.
Florida," said Mary.
"But we were, fine here, even
during the Depression. Mama kept
a garden and she always had chick-
ens, sop we had chickens and eggs
and vegetables. Daddy could
always find work somehow. He'd
see something needing doing and
he'd just do it. We wouldn't be any-
where else."

Do-It-Yourself Ideas


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Over the years, I have col-
lected a number of nativity
sets. I have them all over my
house and office. Some are
homemade and some are
store bought. Some we have
packed
away
which
make their
yearly
appear-
ance dur-
ing this
season of
Christmas.
One came John
from a trip Hicks a
to the Holy
Land and a number came
from friends in the mission
fields in Africa, Brazil, Korea,
Costa Rica, Mexico, and
Belize .A number have come
from friends and family. I
even talked my mom into let-
ting me have the nativity set
we had in the house when I
was growing up.
They all tell the Christmas
story in a slightly unique way.
And not one, not a single one
has John the Baptist as part of
the story. Year after year, how-
ever, when the church gathers
in these days leading up to
Christmas, we begin with the
story of this wild prophet
dressed in a garment of
camel's hair preaching his
message of holiday cheer:
"Prepare the way of the Lord!"
In the wisdom born of


experience, the church has
kept John the Baptist in the
Christmas story. Without him,
we would run the risk of keep-
ing Christ in the cradle and
maintaining a feel-good faith
that makes no demands upon
us. John's proclamation of our
need to "Prepare," is an impor-
tant reminder that the baby of
Christmas grows up to be the
Jesus of the cross and the
Christ of the empty tomb.
So in the midst of the holi-
day shopping and the smell of
cookies baking and the mail-
boxes full of cards and the ver-
sions of Jingle Bells and Here
Comes Santa Claus playing in
the stores, we read again the
words of the prophet who
preached by the banks of the
Jordan: "Get ready! God is
coming!"
We need to take this to
heart, for many times, once we
get beyond the walls of the
church, the message of John
the Baptist gets run over by the
reindeer. We have a hard
enough time keeping Christ in
Christmas, let alone John the
Baptist!
In many homes in America,
Christmas doesn't happen in
Bethlehem, but at the North
Pole. In holiday thinking, Jesus
seems to come in second to
Santa Claus.
.If you think about it, the
Santa story has some, 'good
news bad news' stuff going
on. Remember the song
"Santa Claus is coming to
Town?" The song says: "He
sees when you're sleeping. He


knows if you're awake. He
knows if you've been bad or
good, so be good, for good-
ness sake!" Every child knows
that if we aren't good, when all
of the other children get toys
we will find a lump of coal in
our stocking.
Which list are you on this
year? The nice list or the
naughty list? With Santa, if you
are on the wrong list, well,
there's always next year. But
with God it's different. God
wants us to grow. God wants
us to become. If we are on the
naughty list, God encourages
repentance and a changed and
changing heart. Where there is
repentance there is also grace,
and forgiveness, and God.
That is the message of John
the Baptist. In the wilderness
of the sights and sound of
Santa starting to surround me,
I am grateful for the presence
of John the Baptist crying out,
"Prepare the way of the Lord."
I'm grateful because some-
times I forget that I am a work
in progress. I may be a Christ-
ian. I may even be a good
Christian. Regardless, bless-
ings still come in taking seri-
ously John's reminder to pre-
pare my heart for the Christ
event which is the reason for
the season.
John tells us that God cares
about how we live our lives.
He reminds us that maybe our
lives are not all that they should
be. He gives us an opportunity
to repent, to change, to get
ready for our meeting with
God.


The season to come: Recalling its


original meaning and true purpose


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
We have arrived at Decem-
berl The year has passed
quickly for me and probably
for most of you, too. Just think-
ing about December means
one thing to most all of us ...
the great holidays.
It is a time for mid-year'
vacations and, most of all, for
Christmas. I've celebrated
Christmas in different places
and at different times in histo-
ry; each with its own special
meaning and each with a spe-
cial awareness that some-
thing had happened and was
worth celebrating. Unfortu-
nately, it is easy to forget
about Christmas and what it
means, where it has come
from, how it affects our lives.
Some of my first Christ-
mases were shared with my
family during World War II and
others during the years of pros-
perity that followed. The Kore-
an War brought more conflict,
but was followed by a long
period of peace; cut short by
the Viet Nam War. With Sep-
tember 11, 2001, we were
once more shaken out of a
period of calm into another
conflict. Expressions across
the nation have been strong
and polarizing; people all have
their thoughts on the best
course of action and what real-
ly needs to be done. One of.the
commentators has. summa-
rized our recent elections by
saying that the war in Iraq was


a deciding issue.
The Christmas story is set
against a similar background,
The Romans controlled the
known world by their Legions,
the peach was a shaky one
and the toleration felt by the
people in the far corner of the
Roman Empire where Bethle-
hem is found was likely to be
only temporary. The fears and
threats felt, : .
the imposi-
tions in ,
their lives, -
the worries
about the ,.
present .
and future A
were all
too well
known to SamuelS.
those who
lived in the Thomas
Judean countryside.
Years before, a psalmist
found his hope in God. He
wrote that "God is our hope
and strength, a very present
help in trouble. (Psalm 46,
v.1)" We were not to fear, no
matter what, even if the earth
be moved, if the waters
swelled, of the mountains s
hook. In spite of it all, he
wrote, "God is in the midst of
her, therefore she shall not be
removed, God shall help her
and that right early (verse 5)"
No matter what, God would
come to be in the midst of
things. His plea was that we
would "be still and know that I
am God ... the Lord of Hosts is
with us; the God of Jacob is
our refuge."


His forward-looking hope
provided the strength that his
people needed; no matter
what, God will someday vindi-
cate and bring peace, good
will toward humanity. His
message was to give us God's
view of things. No matter
what, God's reign and His Will
shall triumph.
The Christmas message is
about the beginning, of the
end of the old age and the
bringing in of a new one. It is
about our reason to have
hope and our reason to cele-
brate all of the gifts, the gath-
erings, the parties, the din-
ners, the visits, the greetings,
the decorations and the spe-
cial atmosphere are about
one thing we have the rea-
son to hope because God is
in the midst of us; God shall
help us and that right early.
The baby in the manger is
the symbol of that promise that
the psalmist awaited to see ful-
filled. The way we can make
Christmas "work" for us is to
see the promise fulfilled too.
Our hope is in seeing
through that Christmas child,
the Lord, in the midst of us;
reaching out to help, reaching
out to usher in a new year and
a new day. The reason for a
special place accorded to the
Book of Psalms and God's
hand at work. God was in the
midst of them. They looked for
Him and He did not disappoint
them. He does not disappoint
us when we look for Him; in
the season which is upon us or
any time in our lives.
