Dean of Ocoee school arrested


Suspect arrested
by CPD for exposing
himself to a 'miinor'

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON An Ocoee
man was arrested a day before
Thanksgiving in connection with
an online sexual predator opera-
tion conducted by the Clewiston
Police Department.


The man, an administrative
Sdean and wrestling coach for a
prominent high school in Ocoee,
is accused of exchanging sexually
charged messages with who he
believed was a 15-year-old girl, at
one point exposing himself via a
webcam chat.
Officers in Ocoee arrested
Anthony Zuchegno, 35, on Nov.
22. He now faces charges in con-
nection with the sexually explicit
online conversations with local
officers.
According to a report by the


Clewiston Police Department,
officer Justin Spencer was posing
as the underage girl in the conver-
sations, eventually being sent
messages via Yahoo, Messenger
that became more and more
inappropriate for an older min to
be having with young girl.
Using the screen name "fiboy-
atrz," the man allegedly exposed
his genitals using a web'camera,
performing sexual acts on himself
during the act.
The man contacted the under-
cover officer on several occasions.


As the. girl, officers repeatedly
reminded the man that she was
15 years old.
Putting the evidence together,
the Clewiston Police Department
filed fora warrant for the arrest of
Zuchegno, who was most recent-
ly employed.by the Orange Coun-
ty School District as a dean and
wrestling, coach at Olympia High
School.
The principal 'at the school
refused to comment on the case,
and repeated phone calls to the
school district were unreturned.


. Zuchegno's official charges
include two counts of lewd exhi-
bition via online communication.
Zuchegno \\as held in custody
last week at the Orange County
Jail without bond. He will be
transported to Hendry County to
face the charges.
Clewiston Police Chief Don
Gutshall encourages all parents to
be diligent regarding who they are
talking to online.

Church celebrates


50th anniversary


50 years together
and still going

By Nicole Curry
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Family is one
of the. most important things to a
person. For the people who
attend First Christian Church,
family is more than brothers and
sisters, aunts and. uncles, and
mothers and fathers. .
Their family includes every
member pf their congregation.
On Dec. .3, First Christian
Church, 201 North Francisco St.,
celebrated its 50th anniversary..
The church was filled with
people who are part of the cur-
rent congregation.
Former members came
from all over, including Ohio,
Michigan, and Virginia to join


in the celebration.
The church, started in 1946,
has grown immensely since its
beginning. Only a handful of peo-
ple were part of the congregation
when it was first established.
But they had a piano player,
a preacher, a secretary, and an
audience.
They group didn't always
have a church building to wor-
ship in; once, they even had to
hold church in a bowling alley.
But church leaders said they
prayed and worshipped no mat-
ter where theywere.
Fifty years later the congrega-
tion is still praying and worship-
ping as always. Some people have
passed away or moved; new
members have joined the.family.
The celebration on Sunday
began with several people talking

Toy-related injuries send kids to E.R.


ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. It
seems the holidays keep coming
earlier and earlier every year,
thanks in large part to retailers.
Stores are stocked with mer-
chandise and decorations to
tempt buyers into starting their
holiday shopping immediately.
And with all ,the pressures of
buying the hottest toy or gadget,
it's easy to get swept away.
But before you head to the
mall or go online, make sure that
the gift you purchase will be a
safe one. Unfortunately, thou-
sands of children are injured
every year by toys. In 2005, the
Consumer Product Safety Com-
mission estimated that 202,300
children were treated in the
emergency room for toy-related
injuries. And, 94,000 of those
injuries were to the face and
head, including the eyes. Eye
injuries consisted of.lacerations,


abrasions and foreign bodies.
. Air, BB arid Spring guns
accounted for a large portion of
the documented injuries to chil-
dren's eyes. Any toys that shoot
projectiles are always danger-
ous. Even common products
such as pens, pencils, crayons
and other art supplies, were
involved in many accidents.
"It's so important to make
sure that every toy a child plays
with is age appropriate," said Jay
Tobin, President and CEO.of Pre-
vent Blindness
Florida. "Ninety percent of all
eye injuries are preventable but
.we have to closely monitor kids
to ensure their safety."
Prevent Blindness Florida has
declared December as Safe Toys
and Gifts
Month and is urging all toy
buyers to read the labels and pay
attention to the toys they.select


'Once On This Island'


Glades Central Thespians are
helping the football team and all of
the community by postponing the
production of their musical, "Once
On This Island". The play was'
shown Wednesday, Dec. 6, howev-
er, it will not be shown tonight
because of the State Football Game.
"We know that many of the stu-
dents, faculty and community will
be going to the game on Thursday,
Dec. 7. We want to support the
team. In this way all of the football
team, cheerleaders, band, and
.community will be able to come to
the production next Thursday; Dec.
14,at7:31p.m.
We hope everyone will come
and support the Theatre and Music,
Departments in this production.
Aspi Lane, the publicity chairper-
son for "Once On This Island"
spoke to the cast and crew of the
play. "The-play has really inspired
many young Haitians who are in
the play. The play is about Haiti and
how a young Haitian peasant girl is
in love with a young rich French-
man. Many of the young Haitian
girls who are in the play are the
dancers. They are showing off their
-rhythm and their style, of dancing
for the play.
'As I interviewed three of the girls
from the play, they each had their
own reasons of why theywanted to
be in the play and how the play
affected them. Stephanie Dort com-
mented, 'I wanted to be in this play
because I heard it was about Haiti. I

EE ----- el ~


feel that it's a good thing because
it's like giving back.to my culture.'
Another dancer, Rachelle Sincere
said, 'This play inspired me
because it displays my culture; it
shows Haiti's customs and their
way of life. This play has also-
helped me come out and be more
comfortable with myself. I feel
good about the play because you
really don't see plays like this being
produced. Usually plays are about
Americans or Hisparics. But now
Haitians are being discovered.'
Cathy Roc Wanted others to know,
'I wanted to be in this play because
it was based on my culture and.
where my ancestors originated. I
feel good about being in this play
because I'm finally doing some-
thing that I'm good at and because
it is based on my culture. It also
makes me feel good to be proud of
my heritage.'
This play has a really big affect
on many of our young Haitian stu-
dents who are in the play. The
Glades Central Thespians are hop-
ing that the play will not only inspire
just the Haitian culture, but the
entire community. We hope that
when you come out and see our
play, next Thursday at 7:31 p.m. in
the Glades Central Theatre, it will
give you a total new way to look at
life. The play teaches that we all
need to be friends, and this is a
good place to start.
"Come and support Glades Cen-
tral Thespians," urgesAspi Lane.


for their children. The group sug-
gests the following tips to help
make this holiday season a safe
one for children:
Avoid toys that shoot or
include parts that fly off. Sling-
shots and even water guns are
dangerous because they invite
children to target other kids. BB'
guns should not even be consid-
ered toys." Inspect toys for stur-
diness.,Your child's toys should
be durable with no sharp edges
or points. The toys should also
withstand impact.
Look for the letters "ASTM."
This means the product meets
the national safety standards set
by the American Society for Test-
ing and Materials (ASTM).
"Don't give toys with small
parts to young children. Young
kids tend to put things in their
mouths, increasing the risk of
choking.


Read directions carefully
and follow suggested age levels.
Ask yourself if the toy is right for
your child's ability and age.
Repair or throw away dam-
aged toys.
Keep toys meant for older
children away from younger
ones. ,
Make a list of safety rules
and share 'them with your child.
If your child is playing with
friends, tell everyone your safety
rules.
Remain aware of recalled
products. For further informa-
tion on toy and product recalls,
visit the U.S. Product Safety
Commission Web site at
www.cpsc.gov.

S1.01 inches for the months of
October and November respec-
Stively. The combined total of 2.06
inches of rain marks the driest
October/November on record
since 1940, when only 1.97 inches
Sell during the same two month
: period.
STotal rainfall through the first
11 months of 2006 currently ranks
as the second-lowest on record at
only 38.35 inches District-wide,
approximately 77 percent'of the.
historical average and very nearly
equal to the record low of 38.31
inches set during the first 11
, months of 1938.
* In addition, rain patterns that
| disproportionately favored south-
. ern and southwestern portions of
the District have left many areas


to the north and northeast in 1-in-
25-year dry spells. This is a con-
cern for water managers because
low rainfall at the top of the sys-
tem typically means less water is
available for storage and con-
sumption District-wide.
As a result, the SFWMD contin-
ues to encourage both residential
and agricultural water users
across South'and Central Florida
to voluntarily reduce water con-
sumption and observe normal
water conservation practices.
"Coupled with a very dry year,
the rain is simply not falling in the
right places," said Carol Ann
Wehle, executive director of the
SFWMD. "It is imperative that we
continue to conserve water
across the District. Our lawns, for
example, do not need to be
watered more than once a week
during the dry season, and we
should all do our part within the
home to practice more aggressive


water conservation."
At present, the water level of
Lake Okeechobee, a bellwether
measurement of the District's
water supply, is more than three
feet or 21 percent below its his-
torical average for this time of
year. Water levels in Lake Okee-
chobee are a major concern for
water managers because the Lake
serves as the region's primary
back-upwater supply.
Mandatory Phase' 1 water
restrictions remain in force for the
Lake Okeechobee Service Area as
well as the Northern Indian Prairie
Basin, which comprise the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area, portions
of Hendry, Glades, Lee, Okde-
chobee, Palm Beach and Martin
Counties, as well as agricultural
areas to the south of Lake Istok-
poga in Highlands County. Classi-

Southern flow way proposed by coalition


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE A proposal
to store water south of Okee-
chobee could cause a decrease in
the unwanted discharges of
excess lake water to the estuaries.
SThe discussion of a storage
flow way to the south of the lake.
was a major topic of discussion at
the Thursday, Nov. 30 meeting of
the Nine County Coalition for'
Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee Estuaries and
Lake Worth Lagoon.
The coalition is made up of
commissioners representing'
Okeechobee, St. Lucie,, Martin,
Lee, Palm'Beach, Hendry, Glades,
SHighland and Osceola counties..
"Take the-water south," insist-
S ed Karl Wickstrom of the Rivers
SCoalition Defense Fund. "Every-
Sthing else is nonsense."
SSouth Florida Water Manage-
Sment District (SFWMD) has been
S experimenting with aquifer stor-
age and recovery (ASR) wells, a
process whereby excess water is
Injected into wells below the
Spotable water level and recovered
i if needed. .There are many'
unknown factors with this system
Including the cost.
Mr. Wickstrom predicted that


ASRs would not be effective. He
presented what he called the
Plan Six Concept to the coalition.
This is a thick report advocating a
storage flowway south of the
lake to alleviate discharges to the
St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee
estuaries. The Plan Six area
would cover 230 square miles,
much of which is already public
land. The cost of acquiring the
additional land is estimated at
$560 million. The River Coalition
Defense Fund claims that figure
is about one third of the amount
estimated for ASRs.
Opposing view was expressed
by Hendry Count Commission-
er Kevin McCarthy who noted
that when water is stored south
of the lake, no one to the north
could use it. Paul Gary of'the
Audubon Society called for more
water storage.
SThe Rivers Coalition Defense
Fund is the legal entity of the
Rivers Coalition, The overall
group is made up of about 43
conservation, business and pro-
fession organizations dedicated'
to restoring and protecting the
estuary. ,
"Restoring the natural south-
ward flow of the Everglades
ecosystem .is absolutely critical
to restoring the Everglades and
saving the St. Lucie estuary from


ruin," stated the Plan Six Con-
cept Report.
SThe report goes on to describe
a flow way as, "a broad shallow
marsh area that is used to freely
flow water from Lake Okee-
chobee to one or more of the
water. conservation areas." The
proposed flow way would start
two miles north of the Bolles
Canal,' would vary in width
between seven and 13 miles and
would be 22.5 miles in length.
The east levee of the Miami Canal
and the west levee of the North
New River Canal would serve as
levees for the flow way.
The coalition asked Mr. Wick-
strom to come to the next meet-
ing and make a more detailed
presentation on Plan Six..
Tommy Strowd of.SFWMD
admitted that: ASR cost is
unknown.
Mark Perry of the Evergaldes
Coalition stated that a southern
flow way would take water back
into a system that naturally
hydrates and rehydrates. He
noted that the stormwater treat-
ment areas (STAs) proposed by
SFWMD to store excess water did
not have enough capacity. He
asserted that a flow way might be
more helpful and the estuaries
would not be damages. He was
opposed to the ASR system.


industrial and commercial water
users as well as public water sup-
ply utilities in these areas; 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.
A formal water shortage warn-
ing remains in place for the Dis-
trict's Lower East Coast Service
Area, which comprises Monroe,
Miami-Dade, Broward and east-
ern, Palm Beach Counties.
Though no mandatory water
restrictions have been issued as
part of this warning,the District is
encouraging both residential and
agricultural water users here to
voluntarily reduce their water
consumption as a preemptive
measure to avoid or forestall
potential water shortage orders

0 Come All Ye Faithful rang clear


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Some say it's true, others claim
it's an urban legend. Either way, it
is a wonderful story with a won-
derful mes-
sage. -
As the story
goes, in the .
winter of 1942,
a young boy
named Bruce
was to be one
of the Wise.
Men in a Christ-
mas pageant at John
a rural church Hicks
in the Pocono
Mountains of Pennsylvania. On
the night of the pageant, Bruce
dressed in a long white gown and
a purple cloak. In one hand he
held a crown of yellow card-
board. In the other he carried an
ornate lantern. It was not a happy
moment for Bruce's father when
he saw his son and remembered
that he was to drive Bruce to the
church that night.


The weather was cold and the
car was old. It died at the end of
the driveway. Try as he might, the
father could not get the car going
again. Bruce was told that he
would just have to miss the pag-
eant, but Bruce wouldn't hear of
it. The time was drawing on, and
the car still wouldn't start, so the
boy left the car and headed
towards the church in the snow
with his robes held above the
snow and his lantern swinging.
After awhile, the father was
finally able to start the car and
head toward the church. He
caught up with Bruce at the edge
of town. Bruce looked cold, but
he told his father that it wasn't
too bad. He had lit the lantern to
keep him warm and he had sung
some songs to help him forget
about his wet and cold feet.
Later, as he watched his son
kneeling by the manger, the
father knew that it was some-
thing very special that had drawn
them there that Christmas Eve.
The next day, there was excite-
ment all around the area. People
said a miracle had happened in


the Poconos. One of the Wise
Men from the East, lantern in
hand, was seen walking through
the snow in long robes, wearing a
golden crown and singing "0
Come All Ye Faithful."
Many people saw the figure
from their windows, and claimed
the miracle had changed their'
lives. Arguments stopped, and
neighbor started helping neigh-
bor. The stories continued of peo-
ple coming together and reaching
out in special ways to do special
things for those around them.
The father didn't say anything,
He knew that the power of his
son's faith had somehow
changed him. Now it was chang-
ing others and was bringing them
happiness. Certainly, that could
be called a miracle.
Miracles. still happen today
when people of God step out on
their faith and share with others..
We. can see these miracles all
around us if we open the eyes of
our hearts and take a look. We
can experience some of these
miracles ourselves as we share
with others in special ways this


holiday season. We can be a part
of these miracles to others when
we let ourselves be an instrument
that God uses to help share peace
and patience.and blessings in the
midst of the long lines, healing in
the midst of sickness and irrita-
tion, and love in the midst of life.
Christmas is the season of mir-
acles when people seem to be
more open to respond to some
higher calling to seek peace on
earth and good will towards all
men and women. If we listen
closely, even in the midst of the
hustle and bustle of all that is
going on around us, we too can
hear the "Wise Man from the
East" singing "O Come All Ye
Faithful". It is a call for all of God's
faithful to make a special effort to
reach out in a special way to bring
others happiness and to help
them experience some of the mir-
acles of Christmas right now. It's a
call for all of God's faithful to be a
part of something special 'and to
share in the miracle of Christmas
themselves!

Prepaid college plan enrollment open


People have so much to do and so little time to do it.


., TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Higher
education is the key to opening the
door of opportunity, and many His-
panic Florida families are unlocking
that door through college enroll-
ment. According to the State of
Flprida, enrollment of Hispanic stu-
dents in Florida's public universities
infall 2006 increased by 7.3 percent.
To help Hispanic families save for
their children's future college edu-
cation, the Florida Prepaid College
Board and the Florida State Hispan-
ic Chamber of Commerce have
partnered to inform Chamber
members about the state-spon-
sored college savings plans: the
Flprida Prepaid College Plan and the
Florida College Investment Plan.
"We realize the value of higher
education and will continue to sup-
port our Hispanic community to
progress in the right direction," says
Julio Fuentes, President of the Flori-
da State Hispanic Chamber of
Commerce. "The most important
step is to educate Hispanic families
about college savings options, and
we are committed to doing so
through our partnership with the
Florida Prepaid College Board."
"We want to make sure that
every family in Florida knows that
college can be made affordable
and attainable," states Ted Hoepn-
er, Chairman of the Florida Prepaid
College Board. "For less than a dol-
lar per day, parents of newborns
can open a Florida Prepaid College
Plan* and send their children to
great Florida institutions to help


them reach their dreams."
With the Florida Prepaid Col-
lege Plan, families can lock in the
cost of college tuition, local fees.
and dormitory housing today,
Once enrolled, the plan payments
are fixed and never increase. When
the child is ready for college,, the
plan covers the actual cost at any
Florida public college, or the value
'of the plan may be transferred to
most private colleges in Florida,
select technical schools and most
out-of-state colleges.
The Florida Prepaid College
Plan is the largest program of its
kind in the country with more than
1.1 milliori contracts sold. The plan
is financially, guaranteed by the
State of Florida, making it a safe
way to save. To qualify, the child or
the child's parent/guardian must be
a Florida resident. Anyone, includ-
ing parents, grandparents, friends
or even businesses, may purchase
a plan. Enrollment for the Florida.
Prepaid College Plan started Mon-
day, October 16, 2006..To lock in
this year's plan'prices, you must
sign upby January 31, 2007.
The. Florida Prepaid College
Board also provides families with a
second option to save for college.
The. :Florida College Investment
Plan,** which offers a range of,
investment options and flexibility,
may be used for any qualified col-
lege expense, including tuition, fees,
room and board, books, supplies,
computers, and equipment
required by the college. The Invest-


ment Plan may be used at any pub-
lic or private accredited university,
community college or technical
school anywhere in the country.
Families may enroll in the Invest-
ment Plan at any time of year, and
they decide how much and how
often theywant to contribute. There
are no' Florida residency require-
ments for the College Investment
Plan, providing grandparents with
another way to save for college for
their out-of-state grandchildren.
For enrollment information on
either plan, visit
www.florida529plans.com or call
1-800-552-GRAD (4723).
Financially guaranteed by the
State of Florida. Section 1009.98(7),
' Florida Statutes ,
2-Year Community College
Tuition Plan prices start at $24.53
for arewborn.
S*Unlike the Florida Prepaid
College Plan, investmenls-in the.
Florida College Investment Plan are
not insured or guaranteed, and you
could lose all or a portion of your
investment. Participation in the
Florida College Investment Plan
will be sold only by means of a Dis-

tion Agreement. A copy of each will

SBy The Rev. Samuel S.
SThomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are no signs on the hori-
zon that we will have "Peace on
SEarth" this year at Christmas. In
Fact, it seems
that our con-
flicts are getting
worse accord-
ing to the
reports we get
in the news. We
,are about two
and a half
weeks from
;Christmas; that Samuel S.
special holiday Thomas
that can cause
people to stop for a moment to
i recall the infant in the manger, the
shepherds and wise men, the
Smother and father at the side of a
.newborn child, the angels and ani-
,mals surrounding the scene, the
star in the East.
This is the star that continues to
k shine; the Mideast can be bathed in
its light once more if we look for it:
jThis year there will be animals and
' casualties, newborns and death,

t'The Sweetest
Deal/n Town"




Luan Walker Licensed Real Estate Broer


parents with worries about what is
to become of their children and the
wise men who realize something is
there beyond just what is going on
around them. In the hearts of all
wise -men is the same prayer;
"Peace on Earth, Good will toward
men" even in the midst of chaos,
violence, war.
Christmas is the sign of the
hope that burns in the hearts of
people in spite of the tragedies that
seem to captivate our attention
night after night; in spite of all of the
killing and terrorism, in spite of all
the war and destruction. There is
still that echo from the angels with
us today; "Peace on Earth, Good'
will towards men." I re-read a story
from another war; one Christmas
Eve when the troops had silenced
their guns at the end of the day and
echoes of "Silent Night" were play-
ing in the background. (World War
I) For a minute, each side recog-
nized the hymn; it was part of the
Christmas tradition in their own
country and language. Little by lit-
tle, they ventured out of their fox-
holes and exchanged greetings as
best they could. For a moment,
peace had prevailed over war; the


promise of the baby born that day
long ago was theirs if only for a
short time. Did they step beyond
the everyday lives into a better
realm? Did they get outside of daily
moments to see something of
God? I think so. The wise men at
the birth of Jesus were also able to
get beyond their everyday jobs of
prediction, their demanded obedi-
,ence to the tyrant ruler of the land
where they found themselves, the
limited view of the moment to the
greater view from God.
Once they saw the babe, their
lives were changed. Going home
by a different route, the star that lit
the way stood as a beacon to a
newer, higher calling. There was a
young couple in the midst of a
domestic quarrel who called me
one evening. I listened for a few
minutes at the shouts and insults,
the name-calling and accusations,
and then I asked them "What are
you fighting about?" There was
silence and a long pause. The wife
looked at me after a few minutes
and said "I don't know." The hus-
Sband shook his head in agreement
and the anger abated. I knew it was
more than the surface issues and'


accusations; there was something
that would take time, patience and
involvement to find. I also believed
that, in the search, the grappling to
find each other through conflict
could be changed to finding the
other because there was some-
thing greater, more sacred to be
found. In, the midst of conflict,
there was that deeper yearning for
peace. Finding that gift at Christ-
mas means stepping back and ask-
ing, "Why am I doing all of the
things that I'm doing?" Whether it
is buying presents, fixing a special
meal, visiting with friends and fam-
ily, sending out'cards, decorating
the house the peace that can
come is when we recall why we do
it. At the bottom of it all, there was
the child in the manger and the
gifts He brought, the hopes of peo-
ple that were fulfilled in the belief in
Him, the knowledge that He
brought a new and better day.
Those who saw beyond what was
going on around them knew a bit
of his peace, even amidst the wars
and conflicts of their day. They
lived, and still, live, knowing the
dream is very real and with us still,

about the first congregation and the
church's evolvement since then.
Sue Corbin, a charter member,
said, "I remember when I had to
take up piano lessons. I practiced
hard on each song in the Hymnal
because the preacher always tried
to stump me with'new songs."
After the speakers finished, a.
sermon was given by former minis-
ter, George Secrist.
A fellowship dinner followed the
sermon, and everyone gathered to
catch up on the lives of others.
A celebration concert was held
after lunch and included a well-
known southern gospel group,
'"The Celebration Singers."
Other soloists from the church
also joined in and sang songs of
praise and worship.
The golden anniversary celebra-
tion brought together new and old
members of First Christian Church.
Everyone seemed to have a good
time remembering the early years
and hearing about the obstacles
the church had to overcome.
This church started with just a
few members, but the church was
filled, .with praise and worship.
Now, fifty years later, the church
has more members, and the faith
and love in the church has grown.

Coalition concerned about dike


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE The earthen
dike surrounding Lake Okee-
chobee and aquatic weed control
were two of the major subjects
handled by a coalition represent-
ing the nine-county area at their
meeting in Okeechobee last
week.
State Representative Richard
Machek (D-78) also attended the
Thursday, Nov. 30, meeting of the
Nine County Coalition for
Responsible Management, of
Lake Okeechobee St. Lucie and
Caloosahatchee Estuaries and
Lake Worth Lagoon.
The coalition also approved
two requests for funding for envi-
ronmental projects.
The coalition is made up of
commissioners representing
Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin,
Lee, Palm Beach, Hendry,
Glades, Highlands and Osceola
counties.
"I'm listening," Representative
Machek said. "I hear your con-
cerns loud and clear."
He said it is public input that
makes the government system
work.
"A lot of it all boils down to-
money," the Representative said.
"A clean lake calls for more
money."
Kim Taplin, from the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers (COE)
described to the coalition the
rehabilitation. of the Herbert
Hoover Dike that is going on in
between Port Mayaca and Belle
Glade. This includes backfilling
the existing toe ditch, building a,
seepage berrm, acquiring new
right-of-way and building a cut-
off wall. Studies are going on to
determine the best method of
rehabilitation for the area
between Moore Haven and Belle
Glade.
Palm Beach County Commis-
sioner Warren Newell' said there
was a lot of discussion going on
as to the difference between a
levee and a dam. He said a levee
is designed to temporarily keep
back high water, while adam is
permanent.
Ms. Taplin said the goal of the
COE was to rehabilitate the dike.
She said that converting to dam
standards would require a total
reconstruct.
"We won't have a reconstruct-
ed dam for many years," she said.


She said rehabilitation work
on the dike is continuing while
discussion is ongoing about
changing the status to a dam.
"We prefer it stay as ,a levee
and move on to get it fixed,"
SFWMD governing board menm-
ber Malcolm Wade said.
"I don't care what it is called
as long as it provides protection,"
said Commissioner Newel.
Ken Langeland, from the Uni-
versity of .Florida, gave an
overview of aquatic weed con-
trols. He said there were several
state and federal agencies
involved in aquatic weed control.
There is a Lake Okeechobee
Interagency Aquatic Plant Take
Force to coordinate plant
removal among the various agen-
cies. He said the public is invited
to these meetings and that some
members of the public had been
giving good input. These next
meetings will be held Feb 21 in
Okeechobee and Feb' 22 in
Clewiston.
Mr. Langeland said SFWMD
targets invasive species and cat-
tails, while COE is tasked with
controlling water lettuce and.
water hyacinth.
One of the objectives of the
program is to manage, exotic
species to the benefit of native
plants.
Mechanical harvesting is
expensive and because of that,
Mr. Langeland said the use of her-
bicides is the primary method in
controlling exotic plants.
Acting on the motion made by
Martin County Commissioner
Sarah Heard, the coalition passed
a resolution urging Congress to
fund the Indian River Lagoon
South and Picayune Stand proj-
ects which would restore 160,000
acres of wetland that are under
immediate threat of develop-
ment.
The coalition also approved a
request for funds from the state
Legislature. Garrett Wallace of
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD), put
together a list of community-
based environmental projects
that would require funding from
the Legislature. The projects total
funding will mean state appropri-
ations of $36 million and local
matching funds of $36 million.
This includes two projects
totaling $6,200,000 for Lake
Okeechobee.
The first project includes con-


tinued expansion of water stor-
age and treatment on public, pri-
vate and tribal lands. Water stor-
age will improve the quality of
water reaching Lake Okee-
-chobee. Currently, there are 12
water storage sites in various
stages of completion. An addi-
tional $4.2 million is requested to
include more sites.
. The other project deals with
sediment removal from Lake
Okeechobee. The removal of
sediment would, reduce the
amount of phosphorous that
would come back into the water
from the sediments. It would also
reduce the amount of sediment
that can be Stirred up by major
storms causing turbidity in the
water. Requested funding for this
project is.$2 million.
A pilot dredging project in
Eagle Bay will provide informa-
tion for larger scale dredging.
SFWMD's Dr. Susan Gray stated
that a request for proposal has
already been sent out for this'
project.
Mr. Wallace said the project
list would be presented to the
SFWMD governing board for
approval, as well as the county
commissions in the 16 counties
served by SFWMD.
Ms. Taplin also gave an update
on the Kissimmee River Restora-
tion project. She said that 7 miles
have been backfilled and that 90
percent of the land for continued
:restoration has been acquired.
She added that there is a contract
to backfill another 2 miles.
At the last meeting, questions
about using state land for water
storage were raised.
Lee County Commissioner
Ray Judah referred to. a letter
from Eva Armstrong, director of
the division of state lands. The let-
ter stated,that there were 14,000
acres of state-owned land that,
according to the language of the
Everglades Forever Act, was
leased to.farmers who lost land to
the Everglades .
There were also other isolated
parcels that fell to the state
because of tax defaults and scat-
tered properties from restored
lake bottoms. However, these
properties are too small and scat-
tered to be of any use for water
storage..

Tigers lose heartbreaker in triple overtime
By Jeff Barwick


The Clewiston Tigers lost a
thrilling, yet heartbreaking, state
championship game .to Jack-
sonville Bolles in triple overtime,
27-24, at Dolphins Stadium in
Miami Lakes on Saturday. The
battle of two teams with 13-0
records lived up to all of its pre-
game hoopla and the Tigers liter-
ally gave it all they had.
They outplayed Bolles on the
offensive, defensive and punting
portions of the game but some-
.how still lost. Probably the most
compelling reason for the loss
was the fact that the Tigers were
physically exhausted as the game
neared its end in regulation play.
With six or seven Tigers having to
play extensively on both sides of
'the.ball all night due to a lack of
:depth, while Bolles had com-
pletely separate offensive and
defensive teams, along, with a
staff of 15 coaches, and their play-
;ers had ample rest periods during
:: the contest.
In front of a crowd of about
5,000 in their stands, the Tigers
.dearly dominated the first half of
play but had no points to show for
it. The crowd included a huge
number of Tiger fans along \mith
.supporters from Pahrjkee and
Belle Glade who were hopeful of
seeing a championship sweep in.
Classes 3A, 2A, 2B and 1A for
;teams from the muck. Glades Day
and Pahokee had previously each
won their championship game
and Glades' Central's game is
scheduled 'for Friday at .1 p.m. at
Dolphins Stadium.
After going three and out on
,their initially possession, :Tiger
defensive tackle Willie Armstrong
literally ripped the all away from
Bolles Bulldog quarterback for a.
takeaway at the Tiger 27 to kill the
.drive. Tiger quarterback Jared
Combass immediately.hit tight
end Kale Mitchell for a 21-yard
gain and then got 6 and 14 yard
runs from tailback Collin Ricketts.
Moments later, facing a third and
9 at the Bulldog 19, a Combass
pass was intercepted and
returned 26 yards. The Tiger
defense shut down Bolles and
forced a punt which only carried
15 yards giving the Tigers excel-
lent field position at their 47.
Combass hit wideout John
Melton for 10 yards and a.Tig'er
first down at the Bulldog 43. But
two play into the second period,
Combass was again intercepted
by the alert Bulldog secondary.,
After allowing t\\o first downs,
the Tiger defense sacked the
Bolles quarterback twice and
forcing a punt. The sacks were
made by defensive end Johnny
Jones for a.13-yard loss and line-
backer Collin Ricketts for a minus
11.
The Tiger offense got the ball
back neat midfield thanks to
another poor Bolles punt. Tail-
back Darris Hughes had runs of 3
and 4 yards, and then Ricketts
slammed up the middle for 16.
The Tigers were penalized 10,
yards for holding and then anoth-
er 5 for an illegal shift. Facing::a
third and 23 for a first dow\n. Com-.
bass threaded the needle to wide-
out Jasper Hunter who ran over

fourth and two with a little over 3
minutes remaining in the half.
The Tigers went for it and Ricketts
appeared to have easily made the
first down but the spotting official
marked the ball where Rickett's
knee hit the ground, not where
the ballwas when his knee hit the
ground. As result,: the. attempt
came up inches short and the ball
went over on downs to the Bull-
dogs at their 25. There were no
other serious first half offensive
moc events by either team.
The Tigers kicked:off to begin
the second half and John Melton
intercepted !a Bulldog pass and
returned it 6 yards giving the ball
to the offense at the Bulldog 26
:with just minute gone off the
clock. After 'two- short rushes,
Combass hit fullback Carl White-
head, who had slipped out of the
backfield, with a short pass and
Whitehead rolled for 16 yards. On
the next play, Ricketts dashed off
the right side for a six-yard touch-.
down run. Kicker Will Davis'
point after kick was perfect and
the Tigers were on top, 7-0.
The Tiger defense once again
stvmriied the Bulldogs, forcing
another short punt.
From the Bolles 43, Combass
hooked up with Mitchell again for
16-yards for a first down at the
Bulldog 27. Ricketts ran for 1 yard
and then Darris Hughes rolled for
7, with an incomplete pass sand-
wiched between the runs. Facing
a fourth down and 1, the Tigers
lined up in their power I offense
but with fullback David Pope in
.the tailback position.
Pope used his:235 pounds and
100 percent determination to pick
up two yards and a first down at
the 17. Combass-'then dropped
back and threw towards the end
zone. ABolles defender grabbed
the ball at the goal line and ran it
back out to the six, stifling anoth-
er Tiger drive. The Bulldogs then
elected to try and run the ball and
did pick up two first.downs before
being forced I'I puint with 1:20
remaining in the tird period.
Early in the final period, the.
Bolles defense held the Tigers and

After two short gains, Ricketts'

*Hearndon then dodged two Tiger
defenders and raced 58 yards to
put Bolles on the scoreboard with
only 5:19 left in the game. The
conversion knotted the score at
seven.
Both defenses held the opposi-
tion in check on their next offen-'
sive series. But, the Bolles punter
kicked the. ball out of bounds for
prly a three-yaid punt, giving the
Tigers the ball at the Bulldog 47


with 1:01 showing on the game

Tigers
Continued From Page 13
allowed a Bulldog defender to
break right up the middle and
block the 24-yard attempt, send-
ing the game into overtime.
The Kansas tiebreaker system
used in Florida high school foot-
ball involves each team getting
the-ball from the ten-yard line
and having four plays to score.
The Tigers got the first crack and
scored on the third play when
Darris Hughes took a pitch
around his left side and streaked
for the end zone pylon. Davis
then added the all-important
extra point. The Bulldogs got
into the end zone on their sec-
ond play on a 10-yard run and
the kick was good to send the
game into the second overtime.
This time, Bolles went first
and immediately got penalized
10 yards for holding.
A play later and facing a third
and 15, Hardin threw to Hern-
don who dove from the end
zone back out to the one as he
cradled the ball. To sideline
observers, right at the play, it
appeared and sounded as if the
ball hit the ground between his
arms. On their fourth down
attempt, Hardin quarterback
Sneaked for the touchdown fol-
lowed by the point after kick.
The Tigers were now behind for
the first time in the game, 21-14.
Not to worry, here came the
Tigers. Ricketts ran for one
against a stacked Bolles defense.
Combass then faked a handoff
into the line and threw to tight
end Delvin Hughes who ram-
bled for nine yards and the
score. As he made the end zone,
Hughes dove in and. he was
flagged for unsportsmanlike
conduct moving the extra point.,
attempt from the three yardline
all the way back to the 18, giving
Davis a 35 yard extra point kick.
A miss would spell the end but
Davis was perfect to tie the game
back at 21.
In the third overtime period,
Clewiston had two rushes for a
total of two yards and an incom-
plete pass before Davis came on
and booted a 28-yard field goal
giving the Tigers a 24-21 advan-
tage. Bolles got three yards on
their first run and then wingback
Andre Byrd scooted around the
right side and through the,
exhausted Tiger defense for the
game-winning touchdown.
The Tiger defense, simply
running out of gas after a Her-
culean effort, Was superb.
They were up against a team
that had netted 2,710 yards rush-
ing and 3,039 yards passing on
the season, averaging 442 yard'
of total offense per game. Bull-
dogs quarterback Randy Hardin,
committed to Southern Missis-
sippi, was averaging a 70 per-
cent completion rate and over

234 yards per, game. The Tigers
held him to 8 completions on 19
tries and only 134 yards. Unfor-
tunately, 58 of those yards came
on the final period touchdown.
The Tigers also held Bolles
ground attack that had averaged
over 10 yards a carry on the year
to an average of 2.9 yards on the
night.
The Tiger squad literally col-
lapsed on the field after the
Bolles winning touchdown.
Coaches and staff were busy try-
ing to console the distraught
Tigers and treat an injured play-
er. But, the coaches and staff
were also distraught and the task
was an impossible one. Tiger
Willie Armstrong, openly
sobbed with his eyes on the
ground and said over and over;
"We worked so hard for this."
The T.iges 4 diamof a per-
fect season and th coveted out-
right state, ihampjonship that
had eluded Clewiston for so
many years had vanished. Also,
the region's dream of a Muck
Sweep also vanished.
After the emotions subsided,
Tiger head c6ach Larry Antonac-
ci got the Tigers to hold their
heads high for their fans and
start the healing process from


such an emotional loss. "That
blocked field goal at the end. of
the last quarter was so crucial,"
said Coach Antonacci. "We
knew our team was physically
exhausted."
This was the Tigers sixth trip
to the state championship game
and now they have a 0-5-1
record, with the 1982 team hav-
ing been co-champions based
on a 13-13 tie with Jefferson
County. In those days, there
were no overtime provisions.
Remarkably this was only the
second overtime championship
game in the 15 years, and more
than 100 contests, that the over-
time provisions have been in
force.
While the results of the final
,game are difficult for the coach-
es, team, student body and the
fans to deal with, the 2006 edi-
tion of the Tigers was one of the
.best in school history and gave
all of their followers and sup-
porters a lot to be thankful for
and to appreciate. For the under-
classmen there is always next
season but for the 19 seniors this
was it. While they didn't quite
reach their goal, those seniors
should look forward to their
next challenges realizing all of

Alliance promotes youth football & cheerleading leagues


MIAMI For eight years, the
Orange Bowl Youth Football
League (OBYFL) has served as the
name and face of South Florida
youth football. The organization,
its outreach to athletics and cheer-
leading and its commitment to
support ybuth across the region
have not changed only its name.
Effective today, O.B. Youth Sports
LLC officially has renamed the
program "Orange Bowl Youth
Football Alliance."
"The new name better defines
what we are," says the Orange


Bowl Committee's Youth Sports
Manager Jose A. Regalado. "Orange
Bowl Youth Football was never
actually a 'league' in the true sense
because it affiliates with and sup-
ports many leagues, but does not
run them. Alliance' more accurately
explains what we do so, from now
on, we are the Orange Bowl Youth.
Football Alliance- or OBYFA." -
OBYFA teams now are compet-
ing in. their playoffs with a record-
high eight'member leagues spread
out across eight" South Florida
counties, including Miami-Dade,


Broward, Palm Beach, Monroe,
Martin, and St. Lucie on Florida's
southeast coast; Collier and Lee on
the southwest coast.
The Orange Bowl Youth Foot-
ball Alliance is comprised of five
lorg-time member leagues: Key
West Junior -Football League,
Miami Xtreme Youth Football
League (MXYFL), Glades Tri-City
Youth Athletic League, Treasure
Coast Youth Football League and
Western' Communities Football
League, along with three new
members for '2006 the Nationalt


Shorthanded Tigers place fourth


The season opened for Clewis-
ton's wrestling team at Golden
Gate High School on Nov. 18. The
Tigers were a little short-handed,
missing key starters who are still in
playoffs'for football, but came out
ready to wrestle. With six empty
spots on the roster, there was a lot
of pressure on the eight high school
athletes to perform and represent
the school properly. Facing full 14
man squads, the Tigers battled all
day and came away very success-
ful. Ninth grader Bryan Bacallao
finished at third place in the 112 Ib
weight class and was 3-1 for the
day. Mason Cole, ninth grade, fin-
ished fourth at the 130 lb weight
class and was 3-2 for the day. Bran-
don Caulkins, 125 Ib; Joey Cordo-
va, 140 Ib; Kris Smith 145 Ib and
Jamar Boykin 189 lb, all finished
first and are currently undefeated.
Boykin made a huge.6-5 win in
the finals over Carterfrom Golden
Gate, who was the number one
ranked athlete in the District this
season. Although the score was
dose, Boykin dominated the match
andforced Carter to take two injury
time outs to regain his air.
In the end the eight-man team
from Clewiston placed fourth out at
the Golden Gate Invitational.
"All you can hope for as a coach
is that your kids always try their
best and always represent the
school and the town with respect
and dignit," says Coach Alford.
