Joe Hilliard is festival honoree


CLEWISTON - The Sugar
Festival Committee has
announced that the 2007 Sugar
Festival will be dedicated to Joe
Marlin Hilliard. Joe Marlin's
father, Joe A., and his Uncle
Marlin formed Hilliard Brothers
of Florida back in the 1930s.
Joe Marlin has continued that
family tradition of ranching
while branching out into other
business ventures. The Hilliard
Family has a prominent place in
Hendry County history and in
the development of agriculture
throughout the region. Joe Mar-


lin is the Gen-
eral Partner in
Hilliard Broth-
ers of Florida,
which owns
over 58,000
acres of land
in Florida,
Georgia and
Kansas. The
operation
includes sug-
arcane, citrus,

cattle, sod, fruit and vegetable
and timber production.
Joe Marlin Hilliard was born


January 18, 1943 in Fort Myers
to Joe A. and Tippy Hilliard.
After graduating from Clewiston
High School, Joe Marlin joined
the family operation in 1961.
Significantly, at his direction,
that year saw the Hilliard's first
involvement with sugar cane
when they began with a modest
crop of about 300 acres. Over
the years, the sugarcane
acreage grew and grew, eventu-
ally reaching its highest point of
12,000 acres.
Joe Marlin was personally
one of the pioneers who devel-


oped mechanical harvesting of
sugarcane in Florida. He import-
ed machines and people from
Australia, going on to establish
the largest mechanical harvest-
ing cooperative in the state. His
leadership led the way ushering
in new sugarcane harvesting
technology.
"Joe Marlin's efforts and suc-
cesses in mechanical harvesting
led the way to keep the entire
Florida sugarcane industry
viable. He has never been given
sufficient credit for this," said
U.S. Sugar Corporation CEO


Robert H. Buker, Jr.
Hilliard Brothers of Florida
continues as a family operation
with Joe Marlin's two sons-Joe
Marlin II and Bryan-and
daughter, Mary Elizabeth, all
involved in different aspects of
the business.
In addition to his family busi-
ness, Joe Marlin has been active
in many other organizations.
He is a past president of the
Florida Cattleman's Association,
past chairman of the Florida Fish

Sexual battery



charges faced



by stepfather


Stepfather accused,
mother also
charged in crime

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
MONTURA - Under some
regrettable circumstances, a
Clewiston family has been torn
apart, law enforcement officials
said, because the parents made
some terrible decisions.
Officials arrested a man and
is '., le adrl cr iarged ih n-iN \\ih
sexually molesting their daugh-
ter, or knowing about the crime.
Cecil Dukes, 39, of Montura,
was arrested and charged with
capital offense of sexual battery


on a child under the age of 12.
His wife, the child's mother,
Leann Fatzinger Dukes, 26, was
arrested several days later after
investigators found evidence
indicating that she knew of the
situation and did not come for-
ward to authorities to report it.
Dukes was charged with
accessory after the fact and child
neglect.
The Hendry County Sheriff's
Office got involved after receiv-
ing a call of an alleged sexual
battery. It is uncertain exactly
how officers received the tip.
After a thorough invesliga-
tion, detectives discovered that
the stepfather of the child had
been molesting the young girl

New hope for



Wilma victims


Hurricane Wilma
victims to receive a
year's extension

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - It is no
secret to many families affected
by Hurricane Wilma that FEMA
housing assistant is due to end
at midnight, April 24 - which
means that the housing accom-
modations the victims had uti-
lized will no longer be available
to them.
Having been offered help by
the governmental agency to get


back on their feet, 29 families
remain who have been unable
to find permanent housing.
To help those families-who
would otherwise be displaced
after the help is cut off- the city
of Clewiston voted to take part
in a program that would see
the families finding shelter for
up to one additional year,
rather than losing their FEMA
mobile homes all at once.
Trish Adams, representing
CREW, said the deadline was
quickly approaching and urged
city commissioners to consider
helping the families.

Obediah Franklin, a self-proclaimed minister who tours the country carrying a large
replica of the cross painted bright-red to symbolize Christ's blood, was in Clewiston
on Monday, reaching out to motorists and pedestrians outside the CVS store at the
corner of Sugarland Highway and Olympia Street.


Regular festival to host
entertaining events
for entire family

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - America's
Sweetest Town is gearing up
for the 21st Annual Sugar Festi-
val.
The extremely well-attend-
ed event draws many people
from Clewiston, and surround-
ing cities, for a fun-filled day of
entertainment, sights, sounds
and, of course, excellent food.
The festival will be held next
Saturday, April 28.
Plenty of events are sched-
uled to last the whole day, with
favorites such as the old-fash-
ioned cane grinding activity,
and many other activities sure


to keep the entire family com-
ing back for more.
Of course, judges in the
Taste of Sugar Country Dessert
Contest, will be hard-pressed
to make sense of anything after
a sugar overload. The judges
will be doing their duty at the
Clewiston Inn that day.
All festival events will be
presented at the city's Civic
City Park and surrounding
areas. There is no charge to
enter the festival, and organiz-
ers are encouraging as many
residents to attend as possible.
According to organizers, the
festival this year will begin at 9
a.m., and finish at approxi-
mately 7 p.m.
Festival goers will also get to
enjoy all the wonderful con-
certs planned for the event.

Hospital lab receives


full accreditation


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
Hendry Regional Medical
Center's laboratory has been
awarded an accreditation by the
Commission on Laboratory
Accreditation of the College of
American Pathologists (CAP),
based on the results of a recent
on-site inspection.
Michael O'Keefe, the Labora-
tory Director, was advised of this
national recognition and con-
gratulated for the "excellence of
the services 'being provided."
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter's laboratory is one of more
than 6,000 CAP-accredited labo-
ratories nationwide.
The CAP Laboratory Accredi-
tation Program, which began in
the early 1960s, is recognized by
the federal government as being
equal to or more stringent than
the government's own inspec-
tion program.
During the CAP accreditation
process, inspectors examine the


laboratory's records and quality
control of procedures for the
preceding two years. CAP
inspectors also examine the
entire staff's qualifications, the
lab's equipment, facilities, safety
program and record as well as
the overall management of the
laboratory. This stringent inspec-
tion program is designed to
specifically ensure the highest
standard of care for the hospi-
tal's laboratory patients.
The CAP is a medical society
serving nearly 16,000 physician
members and laboratory com-
munities throughout the world.
It is the world's largest associa-
tion, composed exclusively of
pathologists, and is widely con-
sidered the leader in laboratory
quality assurance. The CAP is an
advocate for high-quality and
cost-effective medical care.
Michael O'Keefe commended
his staff for their efforts in main-
taining a high-quality clinical
laboratory at Hendry Regional
Medical Center.

Problem with
baseball team
I'm having a problem with my
son's baseball team. I put my son
in baseball so he could have fun. I
paid $50 for him to play. It is
becoming a nightmare. My son
only gets to play one inning and
hit one time.
This is not right or fair to my
son. On April 6, they lost their
game. The coach yelled at my son
and said it was his fault. He only
got one time to hit. How was it his
fault? There were other kids who


hit and missed, but they said it
was his fault. The coach told me
to my face it was his fault.
He is 10 years old, what hap-
pened to playing for the fun of it.
They are all winners, they do
their best. Somebody needs to tell
him that. I went to the head guy
over all this and still nothing's
been done. Last time, I was
speaking to the head guy, he
walked off while I was talking to
him. My son was upset and hurt
over it. The coach still has not told
my son sorry. It was not right or
fair to him. I did not pay $50 for
my son to only play the third
inning and hit one time.
They should rotate the kids,
that way they all will get to hit and
play. It's like all they care about is
the money. They got $50 for each
kid to play and I have four kids
playing. My other three kids who
play have coaches who teach
them that having fun is the most
important thing - not who wins,
because they are all winners.
I will not stop until my son is
treated right. They played a game
April 10. They lost and this time
they could not say it was because
of my son. He did so good he only
got to hit one time.
But he hit it, made it to first and
stole second and third and made
it to home. I was so proud of him.
He showed them that he is as
good as everyone else. I hope
whoever reads this understands
that I'm standing up for my child.

Arrest made in state-wide housing scam


TALLAHASSEE - Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced the
arrest of a Bunnell, man for
defrauding at least 11 Florida res-
idents out of thousands of dollars
in a low income home building
assistance scam.
Todd M. Findley, 42, has been
charged with three counts of
grand theft and one count of
organized scheme to defraud, all
third degree felonies, following a
two year investigation by the
Department's Office of Agricultur-
al Law Enforcement. The investi-
gation originated with four com-
plaints received through the
Division of Consumer Services'
consumer helpline against Find-
ley's business, European Ameri-
can Heritage Foundation. As the
investigation continued, officers
uncovered seven more victims.
Investigators say Findley
offered to help low income fami-

lies get a decent home that they
would help to build. Findley took
$2,500 from families as a down
payment. He told them they
would be required to work at
least 500 hours on other founda-
tion homes to become a partner
in the program and then their
home would be built with the
help of the other families.
At least 11 families signed con-
tracts and gave Findley a total of
$27,500 but no homes have been
built. Investigators with Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement say Find-
ley made ongoing excuses as to
why the homes weren't being
built and did not give the victims
an opportunity to fulfill the agree-
ment they signed.
"It is outrageous that these
families pinned their hope of the
American dream on this suspect,"
Mr. Bronson said. "Not only did
they not get their homes built,
these families who least can
afford it were taken for thousands


of dollars. I hope this arrest sends
a message to scam artists that our
Agricultural Law Enforcement
officers will aggressively investi-
gate and take action against those
who would harm our most vul-
nerable citizens."
Findley has been booked into
the Flagler County jail. The eleven
victims are from throughout the
state, including Miami, West Palm
Beach, New Port Richey and Palm
Coast. Mr. Bronson said he
believes there may be additional
victims of the scam as the investi-
gation is continuing.
The Commissioner is urging
anyone who thinks they may have
been victimized by Findley to call
his Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement at 1-800-342-5869.
Mr. Bronson credited the Fla-
gler County Sheriff's Department
and Flagler County State Attor-
ney's Office for its assistance in
the investigation.

Earth Day celebration in the park


Event encourages
environmental
awareness

By Barbara Oehlbeck
INI
HENDRY COUNTY - The
37th annual Earth Day will be cel-
ebrated Saturday, April 21 in over
180 nations. Every year more
countries are celebrating this
essential event - to teach and
encourage all citizens of all coun-
tries the importance of caring
enough to take care of the earth.
Locally, the celebration is
Earth Day in the Park, at Barron
Park, which started seven years
ago under the leadership of Tina
Noel. This year the event is under
the direction of Lois James.
The mission of Earth Day is to


spread valuable social informa-
tion throughout the region and
the world and to provide free
services to other non-profit
organizations to help further
their own mission.
It is a belief that Earth Day's
grassroots efforts can ultimately
help relieve some of the world's
most egregious problems.
The combined good-faith
efforts of the masses will create
major, relevant improvements
worldwide. Common people
must act together to represent
common global problems and
interests, supporters of the
nationally recognized day argue.
This event is free for everyone
and promises to be an occasion
to teach what others are doing
for the good earth. Community
groups, schools, churches, agen-
cies, businesses, clubs and indi-


viduals are all invited to take
their displays to show what local
communities are doing.
Also, nominations are invited
from the community to name
Stewards of the Environment
and the Earth.
There will be entertainment and
good food, organizers promise.
Lori Howard will be there
with her story-telling and Kiwa-
nians will be on-hand with their
poster stories. The Hendry-
Glades Health Departments will
demonstrate a safety fair, while
members of Riverwatch will be
there to talk with visitors as well
as the Caloosahatchee River Citi-
zens Association.
There will be a live bike
rodeo, demonstrations of school
bus safety, EMS, Fire Truck,
Buckle-up Car and Epilepsy Ser-
vices of SWFL. Recycling person-


nel will answer questions about
recycling plus lots of give-away
items made of recycled material.
"We urge everyone in our two
counties, Glades and Hendry, to
come to this celebration of Earth
Day," said Lois James. "It's a time to
learn and to begin to do whatever
we can as individuals to keep our
earth as it is, or even improve it.
Most of all we must all learn how
we can keep from destroying the
good that is all about us. We cannot
afford to waste anything - in the
sky, water, or on the earth itself."
Organizers urge participants
to bring their families, neighbors
and friends to the event.
Earth Day in the Park will
open at noon Saturday, April 21
and continue until 4 p.m. There
is no admission charge.
For more information, call
Lois James at 675-3940.


Be earth-friendly: conserve electricity on Earth Day


N. FT. MYERS - Join thou-
sands of citizens throughout the
nation who will celebrate Earth
Day on April 22 by making a com-
mitment to energy conservation.
There are many easy steps you
can take in your home to make a
difference for the environment,
and many of them will make a dif-
ference for your pocketbook too!
Follow these energy-efficient tips
from LCEC to conserve electricity
AND reduce your electric bill:
* Set your thermostat at 78
degrees Fahrenheit. Every degree


cooler costs eight percent more.
* Replace filters in your air
conditioner once a month, and
have your unit serviced every
year.
* Use ceiling fans to assist in
keeping cool, but use them wise-
ly. Don't leave ceiling fans running
in empty rooms.
* Your water heater is the sec-
ond largest expense on your elec-
tric bill. To save money, set its
temperature to between 120 and
140 degrees.
* Turn the lights off when you


leave a room, and turn the TV off
when you're not watching it.
* Windows account for half of
air conditioning bills: consider
applying tinting to them.
* Keep the drapes closed dur-
ing hot, sunny days.
* Consider planting trees in
your yard to shade the windows


that receive the most heat.

suite of energy-saving tools,

Saver and the new interactive
home.

mation, visit www.icec.net or call

To maintain a reliable supply of electricity for the growing
population of Florida, fuel diversity is a must.

Florida Power & Light Company has announced plans to build
an advanced clean coal technology power plant in Glades-
County. There are several reasons why coal is the right choice
for the FPL Glades Power Park, and fuel diversity is No. 1.

Available and Affordable

Coal supplies are abundant in this country. The U.S.
Department of Energy estimates there is enough coal in this
country to meet the nation's energy needs for the next
200 to 300 years. Greater use of coal could help increase
Florida's energy independence and lessen reliance on natural
gas and foreign oil.

In recent years, the volatility of oil and natural gas prices has
become apparent. Meanwhile, the price of coal has remained


relatively stable. An investment in greater fuel diversity will
protect the energy supply from the effects of price spikes
for any one fuel and helps to stabilize electricity rates for
consumers.
In addition, Florida's natural gas supplies come from two
pipelines - both originating in the Gulf of Mexico - which
are highly vulnerable to hurricanes and other major storms. At
the FPL Glades Power Park, a 60-day supply of coal could be
stored onsite to ensure a reliable and steady supply of fuel is
available even if new shipments are delayed due to a hurricane
or other event.

Meeting the Demand
State officials have been urging power companies to further
diversify their fuel portfolios to ensure a reliable supply of
power while maintaining stable electricity rates. A diverse mix
of energy sources, each with its own advantages, will help


companies meet the growing demands of American consumers.
Coal is a crucial component of America's energy future.
Today's modern coal plants produce electricity while being
good environmental stewards. New technologies allow power
companies to use coal more efficiently and with fewer
emissions than ever before. The FPL Glades Power Park
will operate well within the strict state and federal emission
requirements and be protective of the environment.
Equally important, the FPL Glades Power Park is designed to
be readily adaptable to new technologies as they are developed.
These advancements, coupled with the availability and afford-
ability of coal, are ensuring coal has a place in America's energy
future.
For these reasons, coal is the right choice for the FPL Glades
Power Park. To learn more about the project, please visit

Recollections of
Harley Arnold as told
to MaryAnn Morris

INI Florida
We have been trying to learn
how housekeeping went in the
early days in Florida. The meat and
bones of it, so to speak. An unex-
pected resource has turned up -
Okeechobee County's Harley
Arnold. Mr. Arnold is the youngest
of six children born to William
Eston and Mittie Raulerson Arnold.
"My dad was always out work-
ing, so I ended up spending a lot of
time with my mom," he said.
"When I'd get home from
school, of course, first of all I'd
change my clothes. Then, of course
I was starving, so I'd get a cooked
sweet potato and a piece of
cooked, smoked bacon out of the
safe to eat. (A "safe" is a cupboard
with screen or pierced tin sides for
air circulation where food was
kept.) My next chore was to milk
the cow, and then I'd go out to the
kitchen building behind the main
house. Behind it was a big wooden
box where wood for the stove was
kept. It had a sloped tin roof to keep
the rain out so you would always
have dry wood to cookwith.
I'd split logs that were cut to fit
inside the fire box of the stove, not
too big. We lit the wood with splin-
ters cut from the tap root of a pine
tree, called lighter wood. It was
called lighter wood since it had so
much turpentine; it would catch
fire and burn really fast.
She cooked on a wood stove.
Some of them had a water tank
that kept some water hot, but she
didn't care for that. She said it
would get all nasty sitting there and
she'd rather heat it as it was need-
ed. She wanted one with six "burn-
ers" on top. Below them on the left
there was a box for the fire with a,
grate on the bottom where the
ashes fell. Now the closer things
were to the side with the fire, the
hotter it was and the faster they
cooked. The oven was below the
cook top and the closer to the fire it
was, the hotter it was. It was hot
enough to back any time she was
cooking, I remember biscuits she'd
put on the far side, then open the
oven and turn the pan so they
would cook evenly. There were
two little warming ovens over the
top where you could put some-
thing to keep it warm.
Now my mom told me that
there were still plenty of panthers


around when she and my dad
bought this land on Potter Road. So
when she washed, she put the
baby in a wash tub so roaming
panthers would not get them.
See, she was alone a lot of the
time. My dad would leave for
Bluefield Sunday to go haul
oranges to Fort Pierce and not
return until Saturday.
Now, a lot of people say a pan-
ther will come to a pregnant
woman. My mom told me one
time that when she was.pregnant
with my brother Robert, a panther
came one night.
The house had wooden shutters
on it One night after the shutters were
closed, she could hear a panther
walking around outside the house,
and then scratching on the door.
You know, people call those 'the
good old days." In some ways they
were good, but we don't respect
what these pioneers went through
nearly enough and we should.
I know, because when my dad
was away and my mom and I were
alone, she would tell me the stories.
We didn't have electric for a long
time up here. Our bath tub was a
number three wash tub out in the
yard or in the kitchen if it was cold.
We'd heat water in a bucket to
wash with and not just once week.
We could set a bucket of water out
in the sun in the morning to warm. If
you'd been working in the fields and
were dusty there was no way you
could go without a bath!
When you forgot to set out your
water, it was a cold, cold bath. All
you'd hear was a splash and a gasp
as someone hit that cold water!
Every Mondaywas wash day for
my mom. We got out the tubs,
pumped the water by hand and
heated it up. That was the start of a
long, hard day. The wash was
scrubbed by hand on a wash
board, wrung out by hand, rinsed,
wrung out by hand again and hung
up on the line to dry.
I remember one Monday, it was
wet out and I had me a little red
wagon and I played with it right out
there in the mud and got my
clothes some muddier than I

meals and heated water for baths when Harley Arnold was
growing up.


should have. My mom was preg-
nant at the time and had just fin-
ished up and laid down to rest. Boy,
did I ever hear about it when she
saw me. She had just finished a full
day's washing.
The first washing machine I
remember had a big tub with an
agitator and it would wring the
clothes out for you. It had a gaso-
line motor. It was a big improve-
ment over doing it by hand!
The first refrigerator my wife,
Ruth and I had was powered by
kerosene. It had a wick and a lamp
at the bottom of it. That wick had to
be kept clean and trimmed just right
and it would burn with a blue flame.
One time I heard about two fel-
las who were talking. One said he
had just been out on the lake and
had caught him a 20 pound bass.
He just went on about this fish.
When he stopped, the other fella
said that he too had been out on the
lake and had hooked something he
almost couldn't pull up. When he
finally,did get it up, he said, it was an
old kerosene lantern - still burning.
Well, the first fella said he didn't
believe that for a minute. The sec-
ond fella said, Tell you what, you
take ten pounds off that bass and I'll
blow out the lamp!"
So it goes here in Okeechobee!

April 5, 2007
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001
Dear Governor Crist:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative headquartered in Moore Haven, Florida, I am writing this letter to express
our support for the approval of FPL's proposed Glades Power Park coal project. Like you, we are Florida residents who value our state's unique
and natural beauty, and we work hard in our operations to protect its natural resources. As general manager of a fast growing, non-profit electric
distribution cooperative, I also am convinced that we need a reliable, affordable supply of electric energy to meet Florida's economic needs. The
FPL project will do both.
Glades County is a rural county that needs clean industry, good jobs, and tax revenues. Florida's environmental regulations are some of the
strictest in the country. The FPL project will use one of the most efficient, clean pulverized coal technologies available as well as state of the art
in pollution control. This combination will insure that it will meet or exceed our stringent environmental requirements and therefore protect
Glades County, the Everglades, and the rest of Florida. This project will also bring hundreds of much needed permanent and construction jobs
to Glades County that will provide opportunity to our residents and their children and significantly increase the tax revenues that can be used
to build schools and make other sorely needed improvements that are afforded more affluent counties.
FPL's project will benefit Florida by supplying additional generating capacity necessary to meet the ever increasing demand for electric energy
driven by our population growth and customer use. It will also benefit the entire state by increasing the diversity of Florida's fuel portfolio and
reducing our reliance on natural gas which, as we have learned, becomes extremely vulnerable when hurricane storms affect the Gulf of Mexico.
Having an additional electric generating facility that will be able to store several months of fuel as opposed to hours, will greatly benefit Florida's
recovery efforts when these disasters strike. Additionally, this project will help reduce our dependence on foreign supplies of energy.
I realize there has been a great deal of discussion concerning whether or not the FPL project is right for Florida. Glades Electric Cooperative
relies on Seminole Electric Cooperative to provide us wholesale power. As a member of Seminole's Board of Trustees, I recently reviewed the
results of a comprehensive review of available generating technologies and fuels before our Board approved the addition of a third coal unit. I
was pleased to know that FPL is proposing essentially the same technology and pollution control equipment as Seminole's proposed coal plant
in Putnam County. I also know that based on Seminole's experience in Putnam County, a well thought out project, using state of the art technology and
the most advanced pollution control equipment will be accepted by the residents, provide numerous benefits, and protect the environment We
believe the FPL project will be as beneficial to Glades County as the Seminole Project is to Putnam County.

For all the above reasons, we strongly support FPL's Glades coal project. I remain...


Sincerely,


L.T. Todd
General Manager and CEO

Drought hits area farmers hard


By MaiyAnn Morris
INI Florida
This year's dry season is the
third driest season recordable in
South Florida history. The United
States Drought Monitor, which
identifies general drought areas
by intensity, has recently classi-
fies all areas of the 16-county
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District as either moderate
or severe drought zones with a
prediction of possible drought
intensification.
A sudden, sharp drop in
water levels across the district
the past week, made worse by
higher temperatures and wind,
have led water managers to
tighten water restrictions already
in place for the Okeechobee Ser-
vice Area, the Lower East Coast
and Upper East Coast Areas.
However, water managers, in
a telephone press conference
held Tuesday, April 3, said that
agricultural users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area will be
required to reduce their water
consumption by 45 percent.
Grazing livestock, cattle and
horses are suffering the lack of
forage. The grass is not growing.
"We are very concerned
about the reduction of water,"
said Ed Hamilton, Vice President
of Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Inc.
"With so little water, without
good rain, there is not enough
water to grow our crops. Now if
there was periodic rain like
we've had the last six days we
would most likely be okay, but, if
we have another dry spell we
would be in trouble."
"The recent rains will keep us
'going for two weeks. We have
six weeks left in our growing
season. If we were not this close
to the end, it would be a real'
problem. The lettuce, celery,
radishes and sweet corn we
grow need water," he continued.
"In talking with the consult-
ants with the Corps of Engineers,
we realize that the regulation
schedules being proposed will
not give us enough water to

grow crops. The sugar crops are
in real trouble now," said Mr.
Hamilton.
We are starting to see the
effects of the drought," said Judy
Sanchez, Director of Corporate
Communications for U.S. Sugar
Co.
"With the water level so low,
we can't get water to some of
the farms. We have actually
been under water restrictions
since November of last year. The
capacity of the pumps will be in
control of the amount of water
we get and they will not give 45
percent. This could be a very
serious economic impact to all
the farms. The drought of 2001
made an impact of $100 million
and this one will be worse - the
lake level is lower than it was in
2001. Back then just this region
was declared a drought area.
This time the whole of South
Florida is affected."
"This is what I call a "second
winter," because the grass is
brown, just as if it had been
frozen. When the cows are
down grazing and you see the
areas they've grazed, you won-
der what they are finding to eat,"
said Sonny Williamson of
Williamson Cattle Company.
With horses, this means they
will eat more sand, increasing
the risk of colic.
"More people are buying hay
than ever before," said Pat
Hogue, Extension Agent at the
Agricultural Extension Service in
Okeechobee. Hay buyers have
noticed that feed dealers run out
of hay that is being brought in

from out of state to supply Flori-
da's livestock needs.
"The old farmers around tell
me that drought is Mother
Nature telling you what your
stocking rate should be," said
Mr. Hogue. "Right now most cat-
tle don't look good at all. Some
farmers who have low-lying
areas still have some grass, but
the others don't."
"We bought enough forage
last year to last - in fact, we
thought we had over-bought,"
said Ben Butler of Butler Oaks
Farm, Inc. Ben Butler and his
father Bob Butler both have both
a dairy and beef cattle.
"It's not just the grazing.
When you talk about grass, it's
the grass you crop for hay. All the
water we normally use is from a
reclaimed water pond but its
low. We are having to re-dig old
water holes in the pastures for
ground water for the cattle to
drink, he said.
"We have to watch the water
holes carefully," said Mr.
Williamson. "When the cattle
have to walk so far down to get
water, it stirs up mud. That gives
a huge potential for degradation
of the water. Then, of course,
they like to stand in the water to
cool off, too."
"There have been more ani-
mals die from eating poison
plants this year than we've seen
before," said Mr. Hogue. "When
the grass and forage thin out and
don't grow, the weeds keep
growing. Grazing livestock, that
won't touch these plants when
there is grass to eat, will eat


these plants when there is noth-
ing else to graze on."
"Wildfires are a worry, too,"
said Ben Butler. "There's about
1,300 acres next to us that has
been vacant for two years. It
would be a major fuel source for
a fire. We make sure our heavy
equipment is ready to go and
either my dad is here or I am all
the time."
"I've been in fires like that,"
said Mr. Williamson, "pulling a
water wagon, trying to put out
one of those fires. You almost
can't do it."
"Now that corn is being used
for ethanol, we have seen feed
costs rise 30 percent since last
September, commented Mr. But-
ler. "We have local growers
grow corn for our silage, but it
takes water to grow corn. If we
lose that corn, we are that much
closer to importing silage from
out of state."
"It's going to mean lighter
weight calves going to sale this
fall. That's going to hurt the
economy," said Mr. Williamson.
Gulf Coast , Citrus Growers
Association has member grow-
ers in Charlotte Collier, Glades
Lee and Hendry Counties. Ron
Hamel, executive Director of the
group had this to say:
"We have 140,000 acres of
citrus under cultivation in five
counties and about a third of
that depends on the Caloosa-
hatchee River and Lake Okee-
chobee for its water. The rest is
irrigated with ground water. This
is a critical time for our citrus
which is blooming now. Lack of
water could have a serious
impact for setting fruit for net
year. There was $35 million in
damage done to citrus in the
drought of 2001 and the value of
the fruit is double now."
The question is what will be
the cost? What will that do to the
price of our food?"

S2007 Miss Sugar Pageant


National Coalition seeks federal support


WASHINGTON, D.C. - Advo-
cates for newwater supplies nation-
wide have come together to form
the New Water Supply Coalition to
push for expanded federal support
for water supply infrastructure. The
Washington D.C. based coalition of
public water agencies and water
industry companies will seek con-
gressional support for the develop-
ment of new water supply projects
nationwide including water recy-
cling, seawater and brackish
groundwater desalination and
groundwater reclamation projects.
The New Water Supply Coali-
tion is an expanded organization
that grew from the U.S. Desalina-
tion Coalition (www.usdesal.org),
formed in 2002, to seek federal
funding for the construction of sea-
water and brackish groundwater
desalination projects. The U.S.
Desalination Coalition has several
major public water agency mem-
bers from Florida, Texas and Cali-
fornia. The U.S. Desalination Coali-
tion raised congressional
awareness of the nation's looming
water supply crisis and successfully
sought the introduction of legisla-
tion in the 109th Congress that


would have provided $200 million
in funding for desalination projects.
"Our growing national popula-
tion and the challenges posed by
climate change make the develop-
ment of new water supplies a criti-
cal priority for our nation," said
Hal Furman, Executive Director of
the New Water Supply Coalition.
"We have the technology to devel-
op new water supplies if it
becomes a national priority, but
time is of the essence."
The New Water Supply Coali-
tion has broadened its member-
ship and focus to support any new
water supply programs that can
create new water facilities that are
needed for the growing population
in our country.
In Florida, the South Florida
water Management District, the
Southwest Florida Water Manage-
ment District and the St. Johns
Water Management District, the
Keys Aqueduct Authority and the
city of Jacksonville are members of
the New Water Supply Coalition.
"Our Coalition is committed to
educate every member of Con-
gress about the impending future
crisis this nation will face if we do


not make significant investments in
new water supply projects," said
Michael Slayton, Coalition Chair-
man and Deputy Executive Direc-
tor of St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District in Florida. "From
Florida to California, climate
change and water source pollution
are combining to make the need
for new water supplies a critical pri-
ority in the years ahead."
The New Water Supply Coali-
tion is currently drafting new legis-
lation that would authorize public
water supply agencies to issue tax
credit bonds to help finance con-
struction of newwater supply infra-
structure. Eligible projects under
the program envisioned by the
Coalition would include: coastal
seawater and inland brackish
groundwater desalination plants,
water recycling projects, and
groundwater contamination clean-
up projects that create new water
supplies. The Coalition will be
seeking congressional sponsors to
introduce this legislation in the
110th Congress now in session.

New Water Supply Coalition visit

him, the program provides for
several options that could go to

Under the program, which city

father always gave back to the
community and he has followed
in that deep-rooted tradition.
Joe Marlin will be honored
with a Coffee Social at The
Clewiston Inn on Wednesday,
April 25 from 7:30 until 9 a.m.
The community is invited to drop
by and help honor Joe Marlin on
this occasion. The event is spon-
sored by Seacoast National Bank.
The formal presentation of
the 2007 Sugar Festival Dedica-
tion to Joe Marlin will be on the
Sugar Festival main stage at 11
a.m. on Saturday, April 28.
On behalf of the entire com-
munity, the Sugar Festival Com-
mittee is deeply appreciative of
Joe Marlin's contributions to our
extended community's agricul-
ture heritage and his leadership
role in anchoring the future.
In accepting this honor, Joe

The city was given the option
to sell the units to disaster victims,
donate the units to a disaster vic-

up to one additional year. In the
end, the city voted to house vic-
tims for another year - which will
give the affected families more
time to secure their plans for per-
manent housing.

will be used on a one-by-one

to have the city pay the money out
entirely without first having identi-

An arts and craft show, car
show, and exhibits of antique

to the city's pioneer days will be
featured at the festival.
Local leaders are already get-
ting ready to spend a day of fun
at the festival.
"I am looking forward for the


Sugar Festival," said Clewiston
Mayor Mali Chamness. "So far,
it's been very successful and this
year it will be the best ever yet."
The event continues to be
one of the staple events every
year for Clewiston, the mayor
said.
"I personally love the Sugar


Festival," said Iva Pittman,
Clewiston's deputy clerk/assis-
tant city manager. "I believe it
brings people to the community
and it allows us to show off our
community as well. The festival
is also a good time for friends
and family to get together."
The Sugar Festival celebrates


the end of the annual sugar cane
harvest in the farming region
south of the Lake Okeechobee.
Also, this year's honoree is
Joe Marlin Hilliard, of the Hilliard
family.
This year's festival honoree is
Mr. Joe Marlin Hilliard and fami-

"My only truly regret of this
years festival, is that we won't
have a 50's group, like we did
every other year," the normally
enthusiastic Ms. Pittman said
sadly.

RELIGION 13


Being right or wrong; when belief wins the day


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone told me that the best
words to hear are "You're right!"
and the worst words to hear are
"You're
wrong!" I'm ,
sure there are
others but
these words '
can be very
affirming or
very discon-
certing. To be
told we're
wrong means SamuelS.
that there may Thomas
be a struggle
ahead, things will have to be reor-
ganized, we may have to discard
something we hold dearly; friends
and other like-minded people
may not be that friendly after all.
It's not so good to be told
"You're wrong!" Wrong answers
mean trouble.


We're a "have-it-your-way"
people when we can be; wrong
says we may not be having it our
way after all. One of the commen-
tators on TV was talking about tax
audits and advising that simple
things may trigger an audit; like
not stapling forms to the returns
in the right place. One little error
and be ready to dig out records
and try to remember where all of
those numbers came from.
Someone once sent hundreds of
invitations to their wedding to all
of their friends, but put my home
address on them instead of the
Church address. I had visions of
hundreds of people showing up
in my front yard asking "Where's
the wedding?" and put a sign on
my front door before leaving for
the Church. The couple was visi-
bly upset by this error; somebody
was wrong about a very impor-
tant detail on a very important day
for them and it made a mark. I
have often thought about the
well-known "Doubting Thomas"


as someone who had it wrong
and was a "have-it-your-way" per-
son in his own generation. When
we're right, we have an inside
track on the way things really are;
when we're wrong, we miss part
of reality and are out of touch.
That can be very disagreeable
indeed! For Thomas, there were
his friends - the other disciples -
who told him about seeing the
risen Lord when he was not with
them (John 20:19ff). I can appre-
ciate Thomas' difficulty in believ-
ing that someone had risen from
the dead; that kind of thing does-
n't happen. The other disciples
affirmed that it was really so; that
they were sure in what they had
seen. Thomas was not so sure.
This did not conform to what peo-
ple knew or what took place
every day, or how the world
seemed to work. Thomas, under-
standably, has his doubts, but he
is willing to be proven wrong. He
sets the conditions for revising his
world-view and says "Unless I see


How to make prayer effective


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we attempt to develop
effective prayer lives, there are
certain things to keep in mind to
make our prayer effective.
First, we must pray without
calling undue attention to our-
selves. One of Jesus' criticisms of
the Pharisees was that "they love
to pray standing in the syna-
gogues and on the corners of the
streets, that they may be seen of
men" (Matthew 6:5). Our prayers
should never become a matter of
display.
Second, we must not allow
our prayers to degenerate into
mere formality. Jesus warned
against using "vain repetitions" in
prayers (Matthew 6:7). For exam-
ple, think of the way we some-


times pray at mealtime or bed-
time. If prayer becomes a series of
set words and cliches that have
no real meaning to the person
saying them, then we should re-
think what we are saying.
Third, we must pray with the
full confidence of faith in God.
How do we know that He will
answer us according to His wis-
dom? God is a liberal giver and
we must take our request to Him
"in faith, nothing doubting"
(James 1:5-6).
Fourth, we must always pray
according to the will of God.
"Now, this is the confidence that
we have in Him, that if we ask
anything according to His will, He
hears us. And if we know that He
hears us, whatever we ask, we
know that we have the petitions


that we have asked of Him" (I
John 5:14-15).
Fifth, we must be living lives of
submission to God in order for
our prayers to be effective with
Him. "For the eyes of the Lord are
on the righteous and His ears are
open to their prayers; but the face
of the Lord is against those who
do evil" (IPeter 3:12).
Sixth, we must be willing to do
whatever is necessary on our part
to have our prayers answered. For
example, it is foolish to pray for
health and not take care of one-
self; it is foolish to pray for the
church and not support her every
good work; it is foolish to pray for
the lost and not try to reach your
friends who are lost.
Let us be encouraged to think
on these things.

the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger in the mark of
the nails, and put my hand in His
side, I will not believe." Thomas
has been asked to admit that he
was wrong; but he also recog-
nizes that maybe, just maybe, his
view needs to be changed. As the
story concludes, Jesus visits again
when he is present and invites
him to "Reach out your hand and
put it in my side. Do not doubt,
but believe."
Thomas then affirms "My Lord
and my God!" and he is told


"Blessed are those who have not
seen and yet have come to
believe." That has been the rest of
us ever since. The story of some-
one rising from the dead is hard
for some to believe; that He
should want us to rise with Him
may be even harder. It is easier for
the indifferent or the non-believer
to say "You're wrong" and to on
their way. Then, there are those
millions whose lives have been
changed by believing, by being
among those who have seen
beyond the "reality" of what


seemed to be in the past, and
who live among those who the
Lord included when He said
"Blessed are those who have not
seen and yet have come to
believe." Their reality has
changed the world and they're
affirmed in it. They keep working
to see things improved and are
optimistic, hopeful, joyous. They
know how the story ends; they
got it right after all and the words
spoken are music to their ears.
They have come to believe, even
if they didn't see-and it's for real.

Hendry County, in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), has
scheduled a public information workshop regarding a proposed extension of Helms Road from
SR 80 to SR 29, a distance of approximately 2.5 miles. A study is currently being conducted
by Hendry County and FDOT to determine the preliminary design and location of the proposed
road extension and connections with SR 80 and SR 29.

The public information workshop will provide interested citizens the opportunity to see the
preliminary plans, ask questions, and express their views concerning the design, location, and
potential environmental impacts associated with the proposed new roadway. The workshop
will be an open-house format so the public may arrive at any time between 5:00 pm and 7:00
pm. Aerial photographs, conceptual plans, and other project-related information will be on
display. County staff will be available to answer questions and discuss the project. Please
note that this is not a public hearing. A formal public hearing will be held later in the study
process, in keeping with state and federal requirements.

Project documents will be available for public review from April 19, 2007 until May 26, 2007 at
the Barron Library, 461 N. Main Street, LaBelle. Hours of operation are Monday-Friday from
10:00 am to 5:00 pm, and Saturday from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm. Project documents will also be
available for review Monday-Friday from 7:00 am to 5:30 pm at the Hendry County Engineer's
Office located at 99 East Cowboy Way, LaBelle.

It's Friday, but Sunday's coming


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
How could so much have
happened in such a short time?
What did it all mean? It was only
mid-afternoon, but it had
seemed like a week had passed
since last evening. There were
wars and rumors of wars. Every-
one was running scared of what
might happen next. Some
believed the world was going to
hell in a hand basket. Others did
not know what to believe. Many
just could not believe it had hap-
pened. It just could not be true.
But it did happen, and it was
true. Jesus was crucified -
dead. They didn't know what
was going to happen next. Hope
was shattered. Despair reigned.
Nerves were on edge. Fear was
in the air. It was a dark Friday.
Centuries later, we have the
advantage. We know that Jesus
was crucified, dead and buried.
We also know that on the third
day He arose again from the
dead. Our Lord overcame the


grave. This gives us a hope.
Though it might be Friday in our
life right now, we have the assur-
ance that Sunday is coming with
its' resurrec-
tion promises.
We all
experience ,, , , -,
dark Fridays.
There are
those days
when we feel
like the whole
world is com-
ing down John
upon us. There Hicks
are those
times when things just don't go
well and sometimes those times
seem like they have been going
on forever. And then there are
those "grain of sand down the
pants" type frustrations. You
know the type: small, irritating
and often times, chaffing. It is
during all of these dark Friday
times that we need to remember
the promise of Sunday.
The promise of Sunday
means that we don't have to let
the dark Fridays of life keep us


down. No matter how bad a sit-
uation might be; the end of it
will come. We know that even
though things might be really
dark now, there is a light at the
end of the tunnel. Sunday is
coming. We know that Jesus is
alive and because He lives, we
can live - and live abundantly.
That's the word that the world
is waiting to. hear. That's what we
need to go out and tell the world.
When they get depressed, we
need to tell them that Sunday's
coming. When they are hurting,
when they feel that they can
never know love again - we
need to tell them that Sunday's
coming. When they have lost
their belief in the miraculous so
that they no longer expect great
things from God, we must tell
them that Sunday's coming.
Even though it's Friday right
now, with all of the despair, hard-
ships, and uncertainties that come
with it, Christ is going to rise again.
There is no power on earth, above
the earth, or below the earth that
can keep Him down.
Martin Luther once spent


three days in a black depression
over something that had gone
wrong. On the third day his wife
came downstairs dressed in
mourning clothes. "Who's
dead?" he asked her. "God," she
replied. Luther rebuked her, say-
ing, "What do you mean, God is
dead? God cannot die." "Well,"
she replied, "the way you've
been acting I was sure He had!"
Let us not get caught in that
trap. We serve a risen Savior -
He's in the world today. Because
He lives, we can live, too. Easter
lets us know that. no situation is
beyond God's redeeming power.
Another Easter has come and
gone, but the Easter message
and promise lives on. Sunday is
coming. Let us name, claim, and
proclaim the resurrection life!

Identification kits to soon reach more kids


HENDRY COUNTY - The
National Child Identification Pro-
gram was created in 1997 by the
American Football Coaches Asso-
ciation as a community service
initiative to help protect America's
youth and change the statistics
related to missing children. More
than 800,000 children are missing
