Harlem to be beautified


Dome building
demolished for
Oeautification

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HARLEM - Harlem residents
and leaders watched last week as
a demolition crew worked on
one of the more notable land-
marks in the community, the


Dome.
While the building, a struc-
ture shaped like a baseball half-
buried in the ground, served a
worthwhile purpose when it was
first constructed in the 1970s, it
had recently become an eyesore
and residents agreed it had to go.
The demolition is part of a
larger beautification effort that is
spearheaded by Project Success,
tthe Harlem Tenants Association,
county staff and Clewiston City
Commissioner Janet Taylor -


who were all on-hand to watch
the building torn down.
According to Commissioner
Taylor, the building is only the
first in a line of scheduled events
to help beautify the Harlem com-
munity. Already, plans are being
made to target other areas
throughout Harlem.
Still, the Dome represented
one of the loftier goals of the
beautification effort.
The Dome was built in part by
funding from the federal govern-


Drug busts: HCSO takes to streets

Hendry County Sheriff deputies arrested a suspect in Clewiston as part of their round
-up search warrant sting for sale of cocaine on Friday evening March 30.

Ten arrested after HC SO sting


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY - After a
month-long investigation by
Hendry County Sheriff deputies
and criminal investigators, nine
men and one woman were
charged with drug offenses in a
sting operation last week.
Deputies took to the streets
in Clewiston and LaBelle on Fri-
day, March 30, serving search
warrants on the suspects. The
operation came after undercov-
er investigators with the sher-
iff's office had made controlled
buys of cocaine and other illegal
narcotics.
Six of the ten people arrested
were from the Clewiston area,
according to Sheriff Ronnie Lee.
Five men, Allah Lawrence, 20,
Adrian Anderson, 29, Arvis
Daniels, 20, Doby Johnson, 51,
and Marice McCray, 21, joined
the'woman, Desiree Joyner, 23,
in being apprehended by law
enforcement officials. They all
face charges for the sale of
cocaine, and Joyner and


After opening the large cup on the far right, investigators
found the drugs inside. Officers recovered the drugs from a
wooded area after a suspect initially denied carrying drugs.


McCray were each charged with
possession of marijuana with
intent to sell.
During the operation, one of
the suspects reportedly swal-
lowed the drugs he was carry-
ing to keep deputies from find-
ing evidence on him, but after
being transported to the jail and
asking for water, the suspect


vomited the suspected drugs.
That same evening deputies
and investigator swept the
LaBelle area for four more sus-
pects. Undercover officers
arrested Freddie Lee Thomas,
40, Lamarco McDougal, 23,

ment. From 1974 to 1993, it
served the healthcare needs of
Hendry, Glades and Palm Beach
County residents when it housed
the Florida Community Health
Center, according to Commis-
sioner Taylor.
Later, the building became
the home of the Clewiston Youth
Development Academy. When
that program left, the county
used the structure as a storage
area for surplus equipment.
In recent years, the building


was more of an eyesore than
anything else. Visitors to Harlem
could see it while entering the
community, a first impression
that not everyone in Harlem was
thrilled to make.
Ministers from Harlem, along
with Project Success, have
planned the second stage of the
beautification project, which is
scheduled for Friday, April 6.

Pioneer man



accused of



firing gun


Standoff lasted for
several hours,
ended peacefully

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
PIONEER PLANTATION -
A Pioneer Plantation man was
arrested Sunday, accused of fir-
ing a gun at neighbors.
According to Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriff Ronnie Lee, deputies
Orlando Torres and Brett Daley-
responded to a residence locat-
ed at 16th Street in Pioneer on
Sunday, March 25, when a
neighbor called after having a


dispute with the suspect:
According to Sheriff Lee,
they received another call from
the same neighbor stating that
a neighbor had allegedly fired
several rounds in their direction
with his gun. While the
deputies were interviewing wit-
ness, they heard several gun-
shots coming from a nearby
residence and striking trees
within 20 yards of where they
were standing.
Deputy Rich Perian arrived
at the scene to assist and as he'
approached the area, several
more gunshots were heard

Woodworks



Park razed by



Clewiston


Wooden structure
had 'outworn its use'

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - After 15
years in operation, Wood-
works Park has been torn
down. Concerns that the
structure was unsafe urged
commissioners to action.
Clewiston City Commis-
sioners agreed recently that the


park proved a precarious liabil-
ity if the city continued operat-
ing it, knowing some of the
weaknesses in the structure.
According to Sean Schef-
fler, the city's public works
director, the main structure at
the park, a large play area for
children made almost entirely
out of wood, had weakened
through the years.

First senior
pageant is
well received

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Judging
from the reception of the first-
of-its-kind senior citizen pag-
eant, the members of the plan-
ning committee responsible for
putting on the raucous show
seem to agree that it won't be
the last of its kind.
After a night of hilarious sur-
prises and just a flat-out enter-
taining affair, Anna Clinnard, a
stunning beauty in her own
right, was declared the Ms.
Senior Hendry winner, beating
out nine other worthy contest-
ants for the prize. It was all in
good, light-hearted fun, hcv.'-c,-


er, and the seniors seemed to
have the time of their lives.
Opal Hannock, when asked
by judges why the city of Clewis-
ton makes for such a good place
to raise a family, said, "I didn't
have any children, but I love the
people here. I have adopted
everybody."
The contestants took center
stage during the Hendry County
Fair on Thursday, March 22.
Crowds of festival goers lined up
to attend the event, held in the
pavilion at the Hendry County
Fairgrounds.
"It all started when one of the
board members came up with
the idea," said pageant organiz-
er Sherry Peacock. According to
Ms. Peacock, the initial idea was
to try a baby pageant, but things
just didn't work out. After a little

ing the disabled reach their poten-
tial and reaching people in crisis.

ple in the two counties.

Drought continues; tighter water restrictions predicted


By MaiyAnn Morris
INI Florida
WEST PALM BEACH - Tiger
water restrictions may be on the
horizon.
"If the drought continues,"
said Ms Wehle, "We could be
looking at water elevations in
Lake Okeechobee one foot lower
than the record low of 8.79 feet."
Based on a review of new
information received from the
National Weather Service, water
managers at the South Florida
Water Management District have
predicted that drought conditions
are likely to intensify quickly, par-
ticularly in the highly-populated
Lower and Upper East Coast Ser-
vice Areas, which comprise por-
tions of St. Lucie, Martin, Palm


Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and
Monroe Counties.
At a press conference on Tues-
day, they predicted tighter water
restrictions may be in place soon.
The drought and subsequent
water shortage of 2007 are the
result of severe, extended, low
rainfall dating back to 2006,
which ranked as the sixth-driest
year on record in terms of Dis-
trict-wide rainfall. This has con-
tinued through the first three
months of 2007.
Only 2.61 inches of rain has
fallen year to date District-wide:
Just 37 percent of the average
rainfall for the three-month peri-
od ending March 30. In March,
only 0.60 inch of rain fell District-
wide; This is 21 percent of the his-
torical average for the month.


This year's dry season current-
ly ranks as the third driest season
in recordable Florida history,
according to the National Weath-
er Service. Meanwhile, the U.S.
Drought Monitor, which identifies
general drought areas by intensi-
ty, has recently categorized all
areas of the SFWMD as either
moderate or severe drought
zones with a prediction of possi-
ble drought intensification.
Water levels across the District
have dropped suddenly and
sharply over the past week, exac-
erbated by high evaporation and
transpiration rates and longer
periods of wind and sunlight.
Water managers at the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) announced April 2
that its Governing Board will con-


sider expanding the current water
use restrictions at its April 12
meeting. Approval will mean that
the new restrictions go into effect
on April 13.
"We will be recommending
and we expect that the Governing
Board will approve the tighter
restrictions," said Ms. Wehle.
Phase 1 or moderate water
shortage declaration will continue
for the Upper East Coast Service
area, which comprises'residential
areas of Martin and St. Lucie Coun-
ties and a change to Phase 2 or
severe water shortage declaration
for the Lower East Coast Service
Area, which comprises eastern
Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-
Dade and Monroe Counties.
Lake Okeechobee was at 10.34
feet on Tuesday - four feet lower


than last year's level. It will take a
great deal of periodic rainfall over
the summer months to remedy
this situation said Ms. Wehle.
Water managers will ask the
SFWMD Governing Board to con-
sider Phase 3 or extreme water
shortage declaration for the Lake.
Okeechobee Service Area, which
comprises the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area and portions of Hendry,
Glades, Lee, Okeechobee, Palm
Beach and Martin Counties.
Agricultural users are by far the
largest water users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area; the
new restrictions would require
them to reduce their water use 45
percent.
The SFWMD continues to
encourage both residential and
agricultural water users through-


out the District to reduce their
water consumption and observe
more aggressive water conserva-
tion practices as practicable.
While voluntary conservation
also is encouraged for users of
alternative water supply sources,
the use of 100 percent reclaimed
water is not subject to restrictions.
The use of water for health, fire,
safety and other essential purpos-
es also is not restricted.
For additional information,
area residents are encouraged to
call the SFWMD's toll-free Water
Shortage Hotline at 1-800-662-
8876 or contact their regional
SFWMD service center. Helpful
water conservation tips and spe-
cific information on current water
use restrictions are available at
www.sfwmd.gov/conserve.


Man arrested Sago Palm Academy in Pahokee re-opens classroom facilities


following an

auto chase

Subject was tracked
by Palm Beach offi-
cials into Clewiston

By Naji Tobias
INI/Florida
HARLEM - A 20-year old man
was arrested after an auto chase
that took place near Clewiston on
March 26.
According to a press release
provided by the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, a Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office helicopter
followed the suspect out of Paho-
kee, driving a stolen vehicle into
Hendry County to the Harlem
Gardens area.
At approximately 12:45 p.m.
on March 26, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office received a request
from the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office for assistance with
the chase, according to the report.
The probable cause affidavit,
provided by the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, said that a PBSO
Eagle One Helicopter pilot report-
ed seeing the suspect abandon
the stolen vehicle and flee the
Harlem Gardens area near
Clewiston on foot.
The suspect then entered a
mobile home on Virginia Avenue,
where he was seen taking off a
white shirt, according to the affi-
davit.
As: the Eagle One helicopter
kept watch on the trailer, the pilot
saw the suspect leaving the resi-
dence with a different shirt and a
bicycle, heading toward Ninth
Court.
Corporal Juan Soto of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
apprehended the suspect on Mis-
sissippi Avenue almost two hours
later.
According to the affidavit, the
corporal later found out that the a
residence on Ninth Court had
been broken into and a uniform
and a bicycle had been stolen.
The owner of the residence
recognized the clothing the sus-
pect was wearing as that of her
husband's. The bicycle, she said,
belonged to her son.
Feloice Rivers was arrested by
the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office and charged with one third
degree felony count of criminal
mischief, along with two second
degree felony counts of burglary
of a dwelling and a first degree
misdemeanor charge of larceny.
The suspect is held in the Hendry
County jail on a $23,500 bail.

County

rejects case

manager
By Patty Brant
INI Florida
LABELLE - At their March 27
meeting, Hendry County com-
missioners chose not to create a
case manager position in the
county probation office. County
Judge Jim Sloan had presented
the program as a possible way to
help relieve jail overcrowding.
The commissioners balked at
creating another position which
might "grow" into another full
blown department, indicating
the job could be done by current
personnel.
Also at their March 27 meet-
ing, the county commissioners
decided to purchase several lots
located at the south end of the
runway at LaBelle Airport which
are in the Runway Protection
Zone (RPZ), the area at either end
of a runway that offers the great-
est risk of airplane crashes. Up to
$1.5 million may be secured from
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation for airport-related land
purchases. A home has recently
been constructed on another lot
in that area, which may be pur-
chased later.

PAHOKEE - Sago Palm
Academy celebrated the re-
opening of its facility on Thurs-
day, March 23.
The School District of Palm
Beach County, in conjunction
with Group 4 Securior and the
Florida Department of Juvenile
Justice, completed the 18-
month long project with great
success, according to Don
Tankersley, the project manager
and assistant principal of the
Sago Palm Academy.
Mr.- Tankersley credits the
youth in the completion of the
process.
"I thought the youth were
looking forward to make the re-
opening of the academy possi-
ble," said Mr. Tankersley. "I
appreciate their hard work and
dedication to the project."
Due to storm damage from
Hurricane Wilma in 2005,
which resulted in mold forming
within the walls and air-condi-
tioning duct, the school build-
ing, also known as the Bravo
Building, had to undergo major
renovations to make the facility
safe and secure for the students
and staff to use.
According to Voncia Hay-
wood, the site administrator
and manager for the facility, the
renovation project resulted in
the administrative offices being
based at Belle Glade's West
Tech campus. Students had to
attend some of their classes in

"This is something we've
been looking forward to," said
Ms. Haywood. "The students
are proud to be back in a class-
room setting and that the build-


ing has re-opened."
The Sago Palm Academy has
been in operation since 1996,
with Group 4 Securior having
had a contract with the Depart-
ment of Justice since 1999 to
operate the facility, according to


facility administrator Joseph
Hasselbach.
Ms. Haywood said the Palm
Beach County School Board
took over the school building
part of the academy in 2000.
Mr. Hasselbach added that


Sago Palm received the distinc-
tion of becoming 'deemed' sta-
tus in 2005, which is the highest
possible achievement in the
annual quality insurance
review.
Mr. Hasselbach said that the
Sago Palm Academy is the
largest high-risk residential juve-
nile facility in the state of Flori-
da, with an active community
advisory board made up of
stakeholders, including the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, the Palm Beach County
Fire Rescue and the Palm Beach
County School Board.
The Sago Palm Academy
holds over 200 juvenile boys,
ranging from grades 6-12.
In the academy, five pro-
grams are offered, including
two substance abuse treatment
programs, one mental health
program, one juvenile sex
offenders program and a gener-
al population program.
Mr. Hasselbach said he likes
the way the academy has turned
out for the youths who attend
there.
"Education is the key ingredi-
ent to the recipe for success,"
said Mr. Hasselbach. "Young
men in the academy possess
unlimited talent and potential,
as we appreciate the assistance
in enhancing the environment
where they could learn."

TRUCK TRAFFIC IN CLEWISTON: Truck traffic on 835. There is
noise and speeding trucks and nobody is watching them. I wish the
sheriff's department would watch them a little more closer. The
noise traffic is bad, very bad, going into Clewiston the same way.
The truck traffic is so bad, they need to ride them somewhere or do
something. They ride your bumper, they speed, they intimidate you.
Please somebody do something.

Youth skills camp meant to empower


NFL stars to
participate
By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON - The Clewiston
High School Field House will host
a Youth Skills Camp on Saturday,
April 14.
The organizers, football coach-
es Stephen Boyd and Phillip Sum-
mers, said that the purpose of the
camp is to empower the youth
from Grades six to eight. Accord-
ing to the coaches, they want the
young people to know that posi-
tive things can come out of
Clewiston if everyone works
together toward a mutual goal.
Coach Boyd said his ultimate
goal is to get the youth interested
in playing football.
The camp will be held from 8
a.m. to noon that day. It will
include a tour of the school's field
house facility, an chance to go out
onto the football field to work on
offensive and defensive skills, and
a motivational speaking session
featuring Clewiston natives like
NFL star Eric Green, Lake Worth
Trojans defensive coordinator
Anthony Midgett, college football
player Andrew Powell and L.J.
Taylor.
All four are scheduled to lend
their assistance to Coach Boyd
and Coach Summers during the
camp next weekend.
"We want' to showcase these
guys, letting the youth know they
can make it with good grades and
character, combined with athletic
ability," said Coach Summers.
With the abundant athletic tal-
ent in Clewiston, reaching the chil-
dren shouldn't be a problem, but
it has to go hand-in-hand with aca-
demics Coach Summers believes.
"You can be the best athlete in
the world, if you don't have the
grades, then there are not too

many places you could go," the
coach said.
He said the guests will be con-
centrating on delivering that mes-
sage when they speak to the kids.
Coach Boyd said that he expects
anywhere from 80 to about 100


students to come out to the camp.
"If we get the kids interested,
then the Clewiston High School
football team will benefit from it
down the road," said Coach Boyd.

CLEWISTON - Ashley Diana
Ortega, 18, a lifelong Clewiston
girl, is recognized for her dedica-
tion to school and her exemplary
performance at Clewiston High

Ms. Ortega is one of the best
students in Ms. Whitehead's
class, according to the teacher.
Ms. Ortega maintains a 3.9 GPA,
and has received many awards as
a student through the years.
Ms. Ortega regularly is on the
Honor Roll list, and is currently
also in the top 10 percent of her
class. She has been mentioned in

can High School Students, and
passed the Reading and Math por-

Rounding out her achieve-

Earlier this year, in January,
she was named the school's stu-

Jeremy - An Easter Story


Jeremy was born with a twist-
ed body and a slow mind. At the
age of 12, he was still in second
grade, seemingly unable to learn.
His teacher, Doris Miller, often
became exasperated with him.
He would squirm in his seat,
drool and make grunting noises.
At other times, he spoke clearly
and distinctly, as if a spot of light
had penetrated the darkness of
his brain. Most of the time, how-
ever, Jeremy just irritated his
teacher.
One day, she called his parents
and asked them to come in for a
consultation. As the Forresters
entered the empty classroom,
Doris said to them, "Jeremy really
belongs in a special school. It
isn't fair to him to be with
younger children who don't have
learning problem. Why, there is a
five-year gap between his age
and that of the other students."
Mrs. Forrester cried softly into
a tissue, while her husband
spoke.
"Miss Miller," he said, "there is
no school of that kind nearby. It
would be a terrible shock for
Jeremy if we had to take him out
of school. We know he really
likes it here."
Doris sat for a long time after
they had left, staring at the snow
outside the window. Its coldness
seemed to seep into her soul. She
wanted to sympathize with the
Forresters. After all, their only
child had a terminal illness. But it
wasn't fair to keep him in her
class. She had 18 other young-
sters to teach, and Jeremy was a
distraction. Furthermore, he
would never learn to read and
write. Why waste any more time
trying?
As she pondered the situation,
guilt washed over her.
"Here I am, complaining
when my problems are nothing
compared to, that poor family,"
she thought. "Lord, please help
me to be more patient with Jere-
my."


From that day on, she tried
hard to ignore Jeremy's noises
and his blank stares. Then one
day, he limped to her desk, drag-
ging his bad leg behind him.
"I love you, Miss Miller," he
exclaimed, loud enough for the
whole class to hear. The other
students snickered and Doris'
face turned red. She stammered,
"Wh-why that's very nice, Jere-
my. N-now please take your
seat."
Spring came, and the children
talked excitedly about the com-
ing of Easter. Doris told them the
story of Jesus, and then to
emphasize the idea of new life
springing forth, she gave each of
the children a large plastic egg.
"Now, she said to them, "I
want you to take this home and
bring it back tomorrow with
something inside that shows new
life. Do you understand?"
"Yes, Miss Miller," the children
responded enthusiastically - all
except for Jeremy.
He listened intently; his eyes
never left her face. He did not
make his usual noises. Had he
understood what she had said
about Jesus' death and resurrec-
tion? Did he understand the
assignment? Perhaps she should
call his parents and explain the
project to them. That evening,
Doris' kitchen sink stopped up.
She called the landlord and wait-
ed an hour for him to come by
and unclog it. After that, she still
had to shop for groceries, iron a
blouse and prepare a vocabulary
test for the next day. She com-
pletely forgot about phoning
Jeremy's parents.
The next morning, 19 children
came to school, laughing and
talking as they placed their eggs
in the large wicker basket on Miss
Miller's desk. After they complet-
ed their math lesson, it was time
to open the eggs. In the first egg,
Doris found a flower.
"Oh, yes, a flower is certainly a
sign of new life," she said. "When


plants peek through the ground
we know that spring is here."
A small girl in the first row
waved her arm.
"That's my egg, Miss Miller,"
she called out.
The next egg contained a plas-
tic butterfly, which looked very
real. Doris held it up.
"We all know that a caterpillar
changes and grows into a beauti-
ful butterfly. Yes, that's new life,
too."
Little Judy smiled proudly and
said, "Miss Miller, that one is
mine."
Next, Doris found a rock with
moss on it. She explained that
moss, too, showed life. Billy
spoke up from the back of the
classroom, "My daddy helped.
me," he beamed.
Then Doris opened the fourth
egg. She gasped. The egg was
empty. Surely it must be Jere-
my's, she thought, and of course,
he did not understand her
instructions. If only she had not
forgotten to phone his parents.
Because she did not want to
embarrass him, she quietly set
the egg aside and reached for
another. Suddenly, Jeremy spoke
up. "Miss Miller, aren't you going
to talk about my egg?"
Flustered, Doris replied, "But
Jeremy, your egg is empty."
He looked into her eyes and
said softly, "Yes, but Jesus' tomb
was empty, too."
Time stopped. When she
could speak again, Doris asked
him, "Do you know why the
tomb was empty?"
"Oh, yes," Jeremy said, "Jesus
was killed and put in there. Then
His Father raised Him up."
The recess bell rang. While
the children excitedly ran out to
the schoolyard, Doris cried. The
cold inside her melted complete-
ly away. Three months later, Jere-
my died. Those who paid their
respects at the mortuary were
surprised to see 19 eggs on top of
his casket, all of them empty.

Among our "collectibles" is a

mother and has been the family

motor, he'd have a Model T! We
looked at him and listened to his
brash expectations, but we did it

He'd drive it around the neigh-

him in his moment of glory.
There as another amazing thing

The promise of Easter: Rolling


stones and crumbled tombstones


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I may be dating myself, but do
you remember the scene in ET
where ET reaches out and touch-
es the potted flower that had died?
It began to grow again. More than
that, it became more beautiful
than it was before it died. This is
the promise of Easter for us.
Touched by the Savior, what once
was dead now lives and is more
beautiful than it was before.
It's all about rolling stones and
crumbling tombstones. Every one
of us has a stone or two that needs
to be rolled away. Every one of us
has something we have buried
and sealed away. Whether we
fully realize it or not, all of us have
a tomb somewhere, and in that
tomb we have put some hope that
has died. It might be a dream, a
relationship or an idea that we've
given up on. Perhaps it's some
guilt, some fear, or some loss
we've never resolved. For whatev-
er reason, it has died and it has
been buried, sometimes marked


with a tombstone remembering
something that was alive but is no
more. Sometimes it gets buried in
a tomb within our hearts and we
seal it with a 1 I-
massive stone
to try to keep it
hidden.
The Easter , '
message is a
reminder that
God can and
will make our
tombstones
crumble and John
that He can Hicks
and will roll
away the stone on our heart-tomb
- no matter how big or massive.
By the power of God, the stone at
Easter was rolled away. By the
power of God, stones still roll! God
will roll away your stone no mat-
ter how large or heavy or immov-
able you might think it is. God will
crumble the tombstones we have
set up and life will be brought to
those places where we thought
everything was dcad.
All that Jesus ever taught and
all that Jesus ever did was buried


behind that stone that sealed His
tomb. The forces of evil that
opposed God's great work in
Jesus thought that they had killed
it all. They thought that they had
buried it forever. They thought that
they had won.
But God had another idea. The
stone was rolled away. Jesus was
resurrected. God won! And that
rolling stone becomes the sym-
bol of God's "YES!" to the all of
the "No's" of the world. The
rolling stone of Easter is the sign
that God's goodness will never be
defeated, that God's truth will
never be denied, that God's love
will overcome every hate, and
that God's life will overcome
every death.
We go through life knowing
that we are dying every day as we
live, and knowing that there are
places in our hearts that have
already died, but also knowing
that God promises that the story
isn't over yet. Rolling stones and
crumbling tombstones, what
once was dead, now lives. God
can and will roll away our stones
and r::..- us fro-,- ouur gic.A,-o

The Resurrection


- When you really believe it!


By Rev. Jackie Miller
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A little more than a month
before Easter she had returned
from the burial place outside the
city, leaving there in the silence
her fourteen-year-old boy. Two
days later her little girl gave up
the fight and in less than a week,
her baby. Only the three-year-old
escaped the deadly diphtheria.
When Easter came she was at
church with her husband and


only surviving child. Her face
was pale; but tender and beauti-
ful. She wore no emblem of her
sorrow and the lilies and violets
on her coat were like those she
had worn every Easter since I
had known her. When the con-
gregation arose to sing, she sang
softly the words: "The powers of
death have done their worst, But
Christ their legions hath dis-
persed."
Her husband stood with his
head bowed. He could not sing.


But she touched his hand as it
lay on the back of the pew and
when they recited the Respon-
sive Reading I heard him saying
the words steadily, "I believe
in...the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting." She
taught her class of girls that day,
and he went to his superinten-
dent's desk, led his class in wor-
ship and read the Easter story
with only a break now and then
in his fine voice. Amidst the faces
lined with suffering, rebelling


and despair of that Easter con-
gregation, they had seen a mira-
cle. A fifteen-year-old boy, walk-
ing home with his father from
the Sunday school said, "Dad, I
guess Mr. and Mrs. L- really
believe it, don't they?" "Believe
what?" said the father. "The
whole big thing, all of it; EAST-
ER, you know."
In John 14:19 Jesus said,
"Because I live ye shall live also."
Have you ever thought, "If there
were no Easter?"


How would it be, if I had to go
into the dark, alone?
What would I do, if the Lord
had not made my last pathway
known?
What would I do, should His
love not last throughout eternity?
How would it be, if I could
not greet Him, and my loved
ones there?
What would I do, if it could
not be He is my answered
prayer?
How would it be, had He not


assured - So I could always know?
"If it were not as I promised
you, I would have told you so."

that He created bunnies, too. If you are thinking of buying

the proper care.

Hendry Speedway reports race results


HENDRY COUNTY - Saturday
night racing action is alive and well
at Hendry County Speedway. Sixty
drivers took to the track in seven
different classes making for an
exciting night of great racing.
The Street Stock Division was
the first up. The heat race went
smoothly for everyone except #12
Randy Glover (West Palm Beach)
who lost an engine. John Wilson
(Okeechobee) led the first four laps
until Jesse Brown (Clewiston)
advanced to the lead. Wilson was
able to get the advantage on the
first lap of the feature until Brown
got by on lap three. The race went
caution free for the twenty lap dura-
tion. Jesse Brown took the win.
While John Wilson held off
Tommy Hill (Clewiston) who had.
returned the 1H back to duty this
weekend. Portus Mellette (Royal
Palm Beach) and Joel Goldfrank
(West Palm Beach) rounded out
the top five.
On the first lap of the Bomber
heat there was a pile up in turn one.
Four cars went to the pit. The night
was over for #57 Carl Perman
(West Palm Beach) and #17 Jose
Valdez (Miami). Ernie Turner
(Labelle) and Carol Vanwagner
(Labelle) battled for the lead. Turn-
er spun coming out of turn four on
lap three giving the lead to Vanwag-
ner. One lap later, Ed Steinhoff
found the groove and took the lead
for the rest of the race. The feature
was all Steinhoff who lead the race
wire to wire. Steve Colon ran sec-
ond but was later disqualified not
passing tech inspection. Carol Van-
wagner and Ernie Turner were set-
ting up another good battle when
Turner's engine apparently let go
on lap twelve. Vanwagner would
go on to receive the second place
honors. Ken Sabino (Davie) and
Joe Minnitti (Davie) also did not
pass tech inspection giving Chip
Bache (Davie) the third spot.
The first heat race in the Sports-
man Division had an incident
between Tom Lusk (Okeechobee)
and David Bratman (West Palm


Beach) in the first corner. Lusk lost
his left rear wheel.
Michael Cherry (Valrico) found
it with the front of his car. He
launched the front of the car at least
six feet in the air. It was very spec-
tacular for all who had the chance
to see it. Cherry decided to take the
car to the pits and check it out
before the feature. After the com-
plete restart Bill Lassiter (Port St.
Lucie) had a flat right front on lap
two leaving Travis Drapal (Labelle)
and Mark Taylor (Moore Haven) to
do battle for the win.
Taylor took the checkers.
Heat race two was all Rick Miller
(Stuart until a spin on lap six gave
the lead to Calvin Filingame (West
Palm Beach). Jesse Brown (Clewis-
ton) finished second driving David
Simpson's-car #0 for the night. The
feature would end early for Brown
with some distributor problems.
Calvin Filingame was as fast as I
had ever seen him. He led the first
14 laps until Michael Cherry took
the lead. Immediately after the cau-
tion flag flew for passenger door
bars that had fallen off Cherry's car
in turn three. Cherry would have to
start in the rear with just six laps
left. One lap after the restart #3 Joe
Henke (Naples) set up a pass com-
ing out of turn two and took the
lead. Calvin Filingame and Rick
Miller swapped the second spot
until another caution with only two
laps left. Miller tried hard to get
under Henke on the front straight at
the restart. Henke was able to hold
him off and capture his first feature
win in the #3 car. Miller finished
second and Filingame third.
Michael Cherry got by Bob Stein-
metz (Naples) by about a foot at
the line to take fourth.
Mini Stocks were 11 entries
strong. Glenn Bidwell (Loxahatch-
ee) was the class of the field. He led
every lap of the heat race and the
feature.
Brian Bail (RPB). worked his
way up to second in the heat.
That was also where he
would spend the entire feature.


On lap 7 #75 Paul Phillips got
turned up the track and hit the
wall hard in turn four.
A lot of drivers battled for the
third spot including Ken Tubbs
(Boca Raton), Wayne Stout
(Sebring), Charles Perman
(West Palm Beach) and Gary
Hart (LaBelle). In the end it was
#57 Zack Perman (Ft. Pierce)
with the spot. Stout finished
fourth and Hart fifth.
Mini Mods was #10 Wayne
Hildebrand (Okeechobee) win-
ning the heat race. #21 Jack
McClain (Loxahatchee) was in the
lead of the first half of the feature
until Hildebrand got by on lap eight
going on to win the feature.
McClain ran second and Shawn
Reiss (Jupiter) finished third.
Pure Stock Division was 15 cars
strong this evening. Heat one
Tommy Hill (Clewiston) showed
his winning driving style by passing
six yes six cars in the first corner to
take the lead on the first lap.
Everyone slid high up the race
track and he was clear to drive by
on the bottom. Heat race two was
Conrad Molter (Naples) on some
new tires taking the win over the
eight car field. The Feature was
Tommy Hill From the start. While
Jonny Mosely (Belle Glade) and
Skip Talbot (Loxahatchee) traded
the second spot back and forth.
On lap twelve Skip Talbot found
his way by Tommy Hill to take the
lead. Hill finished second and
Moseley third.
Brian Morgan and Conrad
Molter rounded out the top five.
' April 7, will bring back the Flori-
da Mini Sprints. Exciting winged
sprints with motorcycle engines
and 15 second lap times. Hope to
see all my good race track buddies
there. Cow-Boy out.
Also remember that April 7, we
will also feature Kid's Bicycle races.
Please bring your bikes and hel-
mets. There will be an Easter sur-
prise.

Drought leaves boat ramps high and dry on lake


While some ramps
are useable, boaters
urged to use caution

By Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
LAKE OKEECHOBEE - There
is no doubt that the Lake Okee-
chobee area is in the middle of a
severe drought. Lawns are
brown, plants are withering and
water restrictions have been put
in place. But, nowhere is the
drought more evident than on
Lake Okeechobee.
Last year at this same time,
water levels on the 730-square-
mile lake were at 14.72 feet. On
Monday, April 2, the lake level was
at 10.48 feet --and dropping.
. On May 24, 2001, the lake
dropped to a record low of 8.97
feet. There is serious concern that
this could be the year that the
record will be broken.
Low lake levels mean some
boat ramps around the big lake
are no longer usable. Others may
be used with extreme caution,
since the end of the ramps may
no longer be in enough water to
float a boat.
Boaters are also encouraged to
use caution while out on the lake,
as lower lake levels mean even
experienced anglers may find
their boats beached on a sandbar
or colliding with submerged
debris.
In a community where many
residents rely on Lake Okee-
chobee for their livelihoods, the
possibility of the record being


iNi/ iatrina EisKen
As the level of Lake Okeechobee drops, the pier on the north
end of the lake can be seen. Normally the water comes up to
the end of the pier. This week, visitors could walk underneath
the pier on dry land almost to the end.


broken is not good news.
"This drought is killing the
economy," stated Captain Mike
Shallan, a professional Lake
Okeechobee fishing guide.
"Guide services and tackle shops
are starting to feel the affect of
low water conditions. I've been
fishing Lake Okeechobee for
nearly 30 years and this is as bad
as it gets."
According to Capt. Shallan, the
fishing is still really good if you
can get out past the grass line.
But, the water is so low that get-
ting there and back is becoming
more and more difficult.
The water has dropped to a
level that has made some of the


public boat ramps around the
lake unusable. Others are still
operational, but extreme caution
is advised when using them.
The boat ramps at Okee-Tantie
Marina on the north side of the
lake are operational, but signs
have been erected to mark the
ends of the ramps.
When the new Scott Driver
facility was built (near Okee-
Tantie), longer ramps were
installed. As a result, there are cur-
rently no problems launching or
loading from these ramps.
The ramps behind the J&S Fish
Camp bar are no longer useable.
Where once there was ample
water to launch, there is now


INI/Lorna Lablonski
Low water levels mean that some canals around the lake are
completely dry, leaving boats resting on the dirt or vegetation
at the bottom of the canal.


nothing but mud. The public
ramp at J&S Fish Camp can still
be used, but with great caution.
There is only a narrow strip where
the water is deep enough to float
a boat.
The private ramp at Taylor
Creek Lodge has been dredged
out and is useable. But, property
manager Bill Palmer, strongly
advises to use common sense and
caution when using the ramp.
The ramps at Harney Pond are
good, but there is no longer
access to the lake because the
water level is so low. As with all
the other useable ramps, caution
is advised.
In Moore Haven, the Alvin


Ward, Sr. boat ramp is still being
used but boaters are cautioned to
keep their trailers in the middle of
the ramp to avoid any problems.
Glades County Commissioner
Russell Echols explained that
back in 1990-91, the ramp was
extended and more work was
done on it in 2000 which has
helped the ramp in case of
drought.
The public boat ramp in Belle
Glade also useable. But, due to
the low water, storm debris is sur-
facing and extreme caution
should be used when navigating
in this area.
The public boat ramp at
Pahokee is open. Officials ask


boaters to use caution as water
levels are low.
With the water level low, hurri-
cane debris scattered over the
lake bottom may be close enough
to the surface to be hazardous.
The public boat ramp at
Clewiston is also open. According
to Angie Kelly, Clewiston Recre-
ation Director, the city is urging
residents to use the boat ramps
with caution, and be aware of
how the drought has affected the
entire lake.
Okeechqbee County Sheriff
Paul C. May .and his staff have
already made plans to borrow air-
boats from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) to use in lake search
and rescue. Several volunteers
have also come forward and
offered the use of their airboats
and airplanes for search and res-
cue missions.
Sheriff May also stated that the
Okeechobee County' Sheriff's
Office benefit bass tournament
scheduled to take place in April
has been canceled. The tourney
was to raise money for the Sher-
iff's Boys' Ranch.
"We are concerned about the
safety of those anglers coming
from around the state who are
not familiar with Lake Okee-
chobee and could possibly get in
trouble due to the low lake level,"
stated Sheriff May.
