Are our local schools safe?


Clewiston schools
beef up security

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON After a 23-
year-old college student in Vir-
ginia killed 32 students in what
many are calling the worst
shooting in the nation's history,
local school administrators are
asking themselves: Is my school


safe?
The response so far is a
guarded "yes."
While investigators in the
Virginia Tech shooting contin-
ued unraveling what motivated
a student, who by all accounts
was a quiet loner, to act out in a
manner that seemed to shock
the world, school administra-
tors in Clewiston implemented
some new safeguards in the
hopes of minimizing the possi-
bility that something that deadly


could ever happen here.
At Clewiston Middle School,
the front gates that traditionally
had been left open during the
day are now locked while
school is in session. Cars com-
ing in and going are subject to
closer scrutiny.
Perhaps more significant, all
teachers are now required to
keep their doors locked during
actual classes. The doors are
locked from the inside, and a
person must identify himself to

enter.
By his own admission,
Clewiston Middle Principal Gary
Ensor said it will be an incon-
venience, as students who need
to go to the restroom have to
ask permission to unlock and
the door and knock on the door
on their way back. The incon-
venience is outweighed by the
importance of keeping all 825
students on campus safe, the
principal said.
A week after the shooting at


Virginia Tech, Mr. Ensor was still
affected by it.
"It's a tragedy," he said. "It
makes you think about your
own situation.
At Clewiston High School,
meanwhile, Dr. Robert Egley,
principal, feels safe enough to
continue operating with the
same procedures that he said
have worked.well in the past.

CLEWISTON In a move
meant to discourage any estab-
lishment featuring nudity in the
City of Clewiston, officials have
proposed tightening the lan-
guage in the city's ordinance
addressing the issue.
Several recent inquiries made
to the city's building and zoning
department, as well as city hall in
general; brought the. issue to
light. The prospective business
owners wanted to know what
requirements existed for the
operation of a nude/topless
dance club in Clewiston.
It was at that point that


Clewiston City Manager Wendell
Johnson decided he should
bring the issue up to his city
commissioners. He proposed
amending the language in an
established ordinance prohibit-
ing any type of nudity in a com-
mercial establishment.
Previously, the ordinance
simply addressed prohibiting
nudity in establishments that
also served alcohol. According
to Deputy Clerk/Assistant City
Manager Iva Piltman, there are
no regulations in place against
nudity or public exposure in
commercial establishments
where alcohol is not served.

Annual event
promises
plenty of fun

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HARLEM Everyyear after a
long cane harvest season, the
Harlem Community comes
together to celebrate the Annual
Brown Sugar Festival.
The community of Harlem
has a rich tradition to honor. It
was established many years ago
as a small town just outside of
Clewiston, where local migrant
farm workers called home. Since
that time, the community has


grown, and grandparents there
still talk to their grandchildren
about long ago.
A way of bridging that gap is
the Brown Sugar festival, which
is held during the first week of
May.
Festivities celebrate African-
American culture, offering a vari-
ety of foods, including more than
a few delicious ribs and other
delicacies. Rounding out the
attractions are exhibits of arts
and crafts and games for the
entire family.
The festival is organized and
sponsored by the Harlem Acade-
my Alumni Association, with
plenty of donations from local

City of Clewiston:


Please, no chickens


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON For many in
the mostly rural area of Hendry
County, having chickens is just
part of the small-town, country
way of living.
To officials with the city of
Clewiston, chickens are a nui-
sance that has to be dealt with
before the problem grows.
While in most cities animal
control workers must contend
with stray dogs, in Clewiston,
the chicken is the animal ver-
sion of public enemy number
one.
"The chicken issue is still one
of our biggest problems here in
Clewiston," said Kathleen
McLeroy, with Clewiston Ani-
mal Control.
Ms. McLeroy said her depart-
ment is constantly chasing after
the feathered fiends with the


hopes of corralling them so they
don't become a problem for res-
idents.
"We have caught many of
them by setting up traps," she
said.
Few residents within the
Clewiston city limits are not
aware of the code and ordi-
nances that are already estab-
lished addressing the chicken
problem, according to Ms.
McLeroy. Most of the time, no
one claims ownership of the
chickens because they don't
want to be fined.
If caught with a chicken in
their possession the non-
fried, baked or grilled kind a
person is subject to a $25 fine
per bird, per day.
There are exceptions, how-
ever.
See Chickens Page 12


INI/Ideybls Gonzalez
Chickens are officially banned from the city of Clewiston, unless certain guidelines are met.
For the residents who call in with complaints about the chickens and roosters, it's often the
crowing that does them in.

Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor,
CREW, Inc. had a very suc-
cessful celebration and awards
banquet on Saturday night, April
21. We celebrated the successes
and discussed what more needs
to be done. Exact figures for
income minus costs are not in
yet, but we figure that we made
about $7,000 Saturday night.
We wanted to make sure the
community knows that we did
not do this alone. First and fore-
most, we believe that God has
had his hand in this from the
beginning; we praise and thank
you for this. If it had not been for
the Clewiston Ministerial Associa-
tion, CREW would not have been


born or gotten off the ground. The
volunteers both local and from all
over the country have helped us
achieve the successful closing of
340 cases. We have had over 50
groups and numerous individuals
both locally and from all over the
nation assists us. Organized
groups such as United Methodist
Committee on Relief, Presbyter-
ian Disaster Association, Lutheran
Disaster Response and United
Church of Christ have sent work
teams repeatedly. We have over
350 open cases to go. We com-
pleted our first rebuild, have

ter visiting Montura Ranch,
eeing the growth in the area
many other developers
already had projects, the
ers decided they needed to


be here, too.
"I came to Montura and I feel in
love with it," said Ms. Allende. "I
relocated my family and business
to this area. I still have the Miami
office, but I'm building my own
home in Montura."
Ms. Allende had a very simple
premise: to build high-quality
homes at affordable prices. Many
of the homes being sold in Montura
until then were mobile or modular
homes accompanied by parcels.
Ms. Allende said families should
reach for something better.
"We want to give the opportuni-
ty and option to homebuyers to
build an affordable concrete home,


rather than settle for ... a modular
home," said Ms. Allende.
The company said it isn't wast-
ing time getting started. The plan is
to offer 12 homes at first. The
homes will range from 1,000 to
2,400 square feet homes, with
prices starting at $100,000 for home
and lot.
Though the company will be
offering packages including both
home and land, landowners can
also work with the company to
build new homes on their property.

and the leaders from both packs.
We are very proud of all the
Scouts for 'doing their best',
because this is what scouting is
all about.
We would like to thank Lyons

to keep our community clean.
Tiger cub Jordan Potter won the
prize for the Most Unusual
Trash. Bear cub Aaron Johnson,
Wolf cub Joel McCray, and Little
Scout Buddy Ryan Potter won
gift certificates in the giveaway.
In the past six months, our
Scouts have made holiday cards
for the elderly and donated
canned goods to Hope Hospice
in Clewiston. Clewiston Scouts
will continue to give goodwill in
their community.

School Happenings


Central Elementary
Central Elementary School's 4-
H Tropicana Speech Contest Win-
ners on Friday, April 20, the fourth
and fifth grade classes conducted
the 4-H Tropicana Speech Contest
at Central Elementary. Congratula-
tions to our winners! Maria Mar-
tinez was chosen as the Alternate,
Maelis Martinez earned third place,
Mindy Paniagua achieved second
place, and Jalen Rushing was the
first place winner. Jalen's winning
speech was about Rosa Parks, and
her important and lasting legacy for
civil rights movements around the
world. Congratulations to our win-
ners, and best wishes to the win-
ners, as they move on to the
Hendry County Tournament being
held at Clewiston High School's
auditorium on Thursday, April 26,
starting at 5 p.m.
National Child Identification
Program
Central Elementary Students
recently received I.D. kits for this
program.
The National Child Identifica-
tion Program was created in 1997
by the American Football Coaches
Association as a community serv-
ice initiative to help protect Ameri-
ca's youth and change the statis-
tics related to missing children.
More than 800,000 children are


missing each year. Yet when the
program began, less than two per-
cent of parents had a copy of their
child's fingerprints to provide law
enforcement agencies in case of
an emergency.
The National Child Identifica-
tion Program's I.D. kits provide par-
ents and guardians with a clean,
convenient way to record their
child's fingerprints, a DNA sample,
and physical characteristics on a
card they keep at home.
The State of Florida Sheriff's and
Superintendent's Associations have
partnered with the American Foot-
ball Coaches Association to make
available I.D. kits to the families of
school age children in Florida.
Hendry County Sheriff Ronnie Lee,
Superintendent of Schools Tom
Conner, CHS Coach Larry Antonac-
ci, and LHS Coach Ron Dunbar are
partners with FSU Coach Bobby
Bowden, UF Coach Urban Meyer,
and UM Coach Randy Shannon in
commitment to the National Child
Identification Program.
Thank you for your participa-
tion!

garten, first, and second grade -

dents will need to bring a complet-
ed Field-trip permission form and
$1 The permission forms are being

Poetry Performance Wednes-
day, May 16.

working on a performance poetry
unit. Most of the poems are from
Sara Holbrook anthologies (Ohio
poet who visits schools as a part of
the Artist-In-The-Schools program).
Ms Holbrook's poems are very topi-
cal school life, rite of passage, etc.
She also is procreator of Poetry

classes and parents to attend a per-
formance of this poetry in the cafe-
teria. We have NOW tentatively slat-

drinking and driving. This past year
Smith was chosen to serve on the
Florida Youth Prevention Delega-
tion, for which she and other stu-
dent leaders across Florida worked
on strategies to reduce underage
drinking and drug use. She also
starred in several traffic safety pub-
lic service announcements that
have aired on TV stations in Florida.
"Being selected for the SADD
National Student Leadership Coun-
cil is a great honor, one that is well
deserved and brings great pride to
our state and local organizations
that have worked so hard to edu-
cate teens about responsible deci-
sion-making," said Verl Todd, Flori-
da SADD's state coordinator. "Emily
has been an exceptional SADD
leader in Florida, working tirelessly
to ensure that teens are aware of the
perils of underage drinking and
other drug use. We are confident
she will thrive as an educator and an
important advocate for teens
nationwide," added Todd.
SADD is a national student-
based organization with chapters
in thousands of middle schools,
high schools, and colleges across
the country. Its mission is to pro-
vide students with prevention and
intervention tools to effectively
address issues such as underage
drinking, drug use, impaired driv-
ing, teen violence, and suicide.

Eco-Tourism site: The Belle Glade Mounds


By Nancy Dale
Special to INI
How to tell time by a shadow
stick, demonstrated by Kye
Ewing, data base manager at the
Archibald Research Center in
Lake Placid, was one of the
many lessons learned along the
hike by "Save Our Creek Board"
members and a dozen visitors
on the way to Ft. Center, the
ancient Belle Glade Indian
Mounds near Lakeport and
future eco-tourism site.
To commemorate the memo-
ry of these ancient peoples who
built a sophisticated village
along the ox-bow of Fisheating
Creek, the group hiked three
miles along Banana Grove Road
to the site in the State Manage-
ment Area that will soon be a
developed as an eco-tourism
attraction with observation
tower, information kiosks along
the trail, and picnic area to enjoy
the silent serenity in miles of
magnificent open prairie.
The Belle Glade site was
excavated by Dr. Sears, Florida
Atlantic University archeologist,
hired by Lykes Brothers when
they owned the property, to
recover and protect the many
artifacts buried within the vari-
ous middens. Save the Creek
group hiked deep within the
scrub and palmettos to find the
"charnel ponds" or funeral
grounds where the Indians
burned their human remains
and deposited them in the
ponds. As part an eco-tourism
development in Glades County,
"Save Our Creek" is anticipating
the receipt of $320,000 in grant
monies from the State to reno-
vate the Cypress Knee Museum
just south of Fisheating Creek
Campground to tie into a hiking
trail to Ft. Center. Member Deen
Mountain, experienced trail
guide, will be working with the
Fish and Wildlife Commission
management to designate vari-
ous hiking/biking trails through-
out Fisheating Creek Wildlife
Management Area into Ft. Cen-
ter.
Ironically, not far from the
ancient Indian Mounds is a sign
marking old fort civil war days Ft.
Center, one of the many Union
army outposts throughout the
state where troops were
deployed as "bounty hunters" to
round-up and remove Seminole
Indians from Florida. Fortunate-
ly, however, the resilient and
clever Seminoles survived, and

today provide a major contribu-
tion to Florida's economy and
cultural heritage.
Conducting business at picnic
tables beneath the expansive
shade of an arching oak at the
Indian Mound site, other busi-
ness was discussed. Ellen Peter-
son brought up the accessibility
of Fisheating Creek Campground
for local festivals in the park that
other State Parks provide. Harris
Friedman, Secretary of "Save
Our Creeks" indicated he would
look into the feasibility. The
Board further re-stated the rec-
ommendation to the State Man-
agement Board that Fisheating
Creek be open all along its 72
miles for canoeing/kayaking as
designated by the State Agree-
ment in 1999 when Lykes sold
the land to the State.
Peterson stated that this will
expand the eco-tourism econo-
my and development in Glades
County to other established
attractions such as Gatorama,
Vanishing Species, and Fisheat-
ing Creek that lures thousands of
nature-loving tourists from
urban areas to refresh and
regenerate in the last pristine
wilderness area around Lake
Okeechobee.
The trail to Ft. Center is open
to the public, although Wildlife
Biologist, Grant Steelman said
signs have not yet been posted
and the gate remains locked
until the parking lot it completed


(the group had to climb over the
fence to access the trail). The
"Save Our Creek" hikers pro-
ceeded, but Harris Friedman,
Secretary, said he had tried to
secure a professional archaeolo-
gist to provide a guided tour of
the site but none was available
on the designated date.
In 1999, when the Glades
County Economic Developmnt
Council was founded by citizens
of Glades County with the assis-
tance of graduate students and
professors in the School of Busi-
ness at Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity, eco-tourism was slated
as the number one preference to
expand job opportunities and
the economy with further
emphasis expressed in 2006
(with recommendations and
economic assistance of the State
"Main Street" organization) and
"Visioning" meetings to revital-
ize the 1900s historic buildings
on Main Street Moore Haven to
develop a riverwalk, another
eco-tourism and economic
attraction for the estimated
18,000 pleasure boats that ply
the Caloosahatchee River yearly
crossing from the Atlantic Ocean
to the Gulf of Mexico.
In other business, the Amber
Bratz, Treasurer, reported that
there are 88 members of "Save,
Our Creek" and that member-
ship was still $10, individual, $15
family and $75 for life member-
ship.


Visitor Rhonda Roff, Presi-
dent of the "Save It Now Glades
County" (SING) grbup reported.
that as part of grass roots efforts
regarding costs to the citizens
and concerns to the environ-
ment from the coal powered
plant proposed near Ft. Center,
and number of memberswere
going to testify during the
upcoming Public Service Com-
mission hearings in Tallatiassee.
The Governor and Cabinet will
make the final decision regard-
ing the approval/disapproval for
the coal plant project. Ft. Center
is located a few miles north of
the proposed FPL coal powered
energy plant. (Save Our Creel
member, Bob Hummel said he
attended a recent task force
meeting in Sebring with, other
Washington Environmental Pro-
tection Agency (EPA), Depart-
ment of Interior, Governor's
Office officials, where concern
was expressed about the effects
on the environment of the pro-
posed coal burning power
plant).
After a picnic lunch and relax-
ing in the cool breeze, the group
hiked around some of tht cur\-
ing mounds rising within the;
native overgrowth attempting to
follow the diagrams laid out of
the site by Dr. Sears in.his'book
Ft. Center..

Chickens
Continued From Page 1
"We just don't go out there
and fine the residents for having
chickens, roosters or any animal
that is considered a farm animal,"
said Ms. McLeroy.
If there is an issue, the depart-
ment works with residents to try
to come up with a solution before
simply issuing fines. Most times,
residents are educated about
what is allowed and what isn't,
and given enough time to correct
the problem.
Very rarely, if ever, does the
department resort to fines.
"Since I began with the depart-
ment three years ago, I personally
have not had to fine anyone," said

dard operating procedures,"
said Dr. Egley, "but we've
stepped it up a notch."
According to Dr. Egley, school
teachers are asked to be more
wary while walking the halls.
Teachers are taught to immedi-
ately alert the office if they see
someone suspicious activity on
campus.
If a student is roaming in the
hallway, teachers are encour-
aged to approach the student
and guide them to where
"they're supposed to be."
The shooting seemed to
shock Dr. Egley, too.
"It absolutely broke my
heart," Dr. Egley said. "It was
sickening. It was repulsive to me
that someone would do that in
America." School decisions
related to safety "are at the fore-
front of every decision we
make," he said.
Working closely with the
school is the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, which has
deputies checking up on the
school once, sometimes several
times each day, after the incident
in Virginia.
According to Hendry County
Superintendent Tom Conner,
Clewiston schools have been
practicing simulations includ-
ing one in which an intruder
breaks into the school. It's an
'extra step to take to be ready if
something were to ever happen,
the superintendent said.
"Could it prevent it, that's a
tough call," said Mr. Conner. "It's
a worry everyday."
Mr. Conner said that in the


Ms. McLeroy. "So far I have been
able to work with the individual
and correct the problem with just
warningg"
Which begs the question:
Why worry over the chickens at
all?
According to Clewiston Ani-
mal Control, the problems most
often associated with chickens is
that they are just all over the
place, with roosters "cock-a-doo-
dling early in the mornings.
Citizens simply don't appreci-
ate the callings of a rural life so
early in the morning they have
alarm clocks for that now, they
might argue. And so they call Ani-
mal Control, still weary-eyed and
mouthing silent words directed at
the crowing rooster.
But it isn't all over for the


"We have pretty good
standard operating
procedures, but we've
stepped it up a notch."
Dr. Robert Egley,
principal

days after the Virginia Tech
shooting made headlines,
reports of the student having
had a troubled past, including
mental problems, should have
been taken more seriously
before they festered the way
they did.
"I personally thought here
was somebody who ... was strik-
ing back in general at the world
- 'It's us against the world,"'
said Mr. Conner.
Dr. Egley hopes to attack the
problem where he thinks it
exists, at the educational level,
and continuing the sense of
community that has character-
ized Clewiston High School.
"I've been an administrator
for more than 20 years and I
probably feel safer here," Dr.
Egley said.
An overhaul of the school's
security system, the principal
said, would not be the answer.
In the meantime, officials say
they will continue to do what
they can to make sure that par-
ents get to see their children
come back home safely every
day.
"We cover the campus in
prayer," said Principal Ensor.
"But you have to be practical,
too."

If a chicken is captured by the
city, Ms. McLeroy explained, they
are often turned over to the prop-
er authorities farm owners in
Montura who have no trouble
accommodating the animals.
Without realizing it, the city of
Clewiston may have answered
the age-old question: Why did the

Rules
Continued From Page 1
Technically, between now and
the point at which the commis-
sion votes for or against the
change, there is not a lot that can
be done to block such a business
from opening.
Leaders quickly reacted to the
inquiries.
"We want to keep Clewiston
they way it is," said Mrs. Pittman,
who has served many years at city
hall.
Most city officials in Clewiston
said they feel that these types of
businesses create unwanted prob-
lems, and are an overall negative
influence on the community.
"I don't think it would be a good
image for our community," said
City Manager Johnson.
The city has taken the first step
in strengthening the controls in the
ordinance. At the April 16 city meet-
ing, commissioners voted to
approve the first reading of the ordi-
nance. The public will have an
opportunity to weigh-in during the
scheduled May 21 city meeting,
where commissioners are expect-
ed to make their final determina-
tion. The meeting is scheduled to
begin at 5:30 p.m.
While on the issue, the commis-
sion also decided to regulate the
operation of game rooms within
the city, which is also not addressed
by any guidelines of the city.
"From my own experiences in
the past, I can attest that games
rooms can also be problematic in
the absence of regulatory guide-
lines," City Manager Johnson said.
"The city and the commission are
doing this for the best interest of the
city and its residents," added Mr.
Johnson.

Why school shootings -

like Virginia Tech?. .. j. --


There is no question that what a
person reads has a profound effect
on him. Many have come to the
Lord through the reading of the
Scripture. Many others have been
led into skepticism and doubt by
reading some atheist's or agnostic's
material.
What made America great in
time pastwas the faith it had in God.
The faith in part was communicat-
ed to the young in public school. It
was the desire of the founders of
America that our education be Bible
based. Noah Webster called the
"Schoolmaster to America" saw his
duty in teaching to rescue "poor
creatures from the slavery of sin and
Satan by setting the word of God for
a lantern to our feet and a light to
our paths."
One of the school textbooks in
the past was McGuffey's Reader.
Notice the spiritual emphasis found
in this selected passage from
McGuffey's Third Eclectic Reader:
Things to remember:
When you rise in the morning
remember who kept you from dan-
ger during the night. Remember
who watched over you while you
slept, and whose sun shines
around you and gives you the
sweet light of day.
Let God have the thanks of
your heart for His kindness and His
care; and pray for His protection
during the wakeful hours of day.


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Years ago, just before coming to
Clewiston in 1976, I had an old
radio given to me that received
police calls. It didn't work, but by
"juggling" parts and making some
tube substitutions, I "resurrected"
it.
It was on my ..
bench for a test .
run and I was
only half-listen- -3
ing to it. There ..
came a call -
about a stab-
bing at an
address that
rung a bell. I SamuelS.
knew that I had
known that
address and stopped to think about
the general neighborhood, the
area, trying to locate things I knew
and refresh my memory. Suddenly
.it came to me; that was the address
of my high school where I had
attended for fouryears, where I had
graduated, played basketball,
belonged to a service club, made
friends, won a scholarship to col-
lege, where nearly 20 years before
nobody would have thought about
stabbing anyone.
What had happened? What
caused this violence in a place
where nobody thought about stab-
bing anyone when I walked the
halls there with a sense of security
and safety? Obviously, we have
come to be a much more violent
society. What I have observed
when there is violence is that one of
the parties perceives an injury, a
slight, an insult, an attack and feels
a need to retaliate. In fact, many of
the tragedies I hear about in
schools, colleges, any place where
people gather has to do with the
aggressor somehow feeling that
(s)he is persecuted, being attacked,
forced to defend Something.
More often than not, that may
not be true at all; or if it is true, the
reaction grossly outweighs the per-
ceived affront. I see in much vio-
lence a loss of perspective; the
reaction being far more drastic
than the initial reaction that triggers
it. I remember hearing about a
domestic dispute; where the hus-
band assaulted not only his wife,


Remember that God made all
creatures to be happy, and will do
nothing that may prevent their
being so, without good reason for it
At night, before you go to
sleep, think whether you have
done anything that was wrong dur-
ing the day, and pray to God to for-
give you. If any one has done you
wrong, forgive him in your heart.
Trust in the Lord, and He will
guide you in the way of good men.
The path of the just is as a shining
light that shineth more and more
unto the perfect day.
We must do all the good we
can to all men, for this is well pleas-
ing in the sight of God. He delights
to see His children walk in love, and
do good one to another.
If our land would return to such
education it would do more good
than all the new facilities or a raise
in teacher's pay. Only God can
bless a nation! Isn't it ironic that a
liberal court took an insignificant
statement from a letter written by
Thomas Jefferson to a Minister to
make a separation between Chris-
tianity and the state, when Presi-
dent Jefferson said that every
teacher's desk in America should
have a copy of the Bible and an
Isaac's Watts hymnal. In our past
history, with the Bible as our guide,
rash school shootings and other
social problems never happened.


but his mother-in-law.
I couldn't help but wonder that,
even if the mother-in-law was
involved, wasn't it really a matter to
be resolved between a couple and
not to involve third parties? People
will say things and suddenly there is
a reaction that may, or may not, be
justified. I think we traded our
insults and jibes when I was in high
school, but you usually got back
what you gave. Nobody felt a need
to retaliate as drastically and with as.
much violence as seems to be hap-
pening today. The result was that
things didn't escalate, and seemed
to come to quicker resolutions.
There seemed to be less involve-
ment needed on the parts of those
charged with keeping order; an
unwritten rule that characterized
earlier times was to "keep things in
perspective.' The recent violence in
our educational institutions, and
there has been much violence,
might be symptomatic of a world
where people (1) perceive them-
selves as being victimized in some
way, when theyay not really be or
it may not be as severe as felt, and
(2) there seems to be a felt need to
retaliate with all the intensity that
can be mustered. When we change
our values, work to avoid a "chip-
on-the-shoulder" mentality, work to
teach people to keep things in per-
spective, maybe we will be able to
return to a more peaceful life and
have fewer tragedies in our schools
and across the nation. Paul writes in
Romans (12:9ff) "...be devoted to
one another, honor one another
above yourselves, be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction, fervent in
prayer..." and then comes a real
challenge: "Bless those who perse-
cute you, bless and do not curse."
Regarding vengeance, he admon-
ishes "Do not take revenge my
friends, but leave room for God's
wrath, for it is written 'It is mine to
avenge, Iwillrepay' (Romans 12:19)."
It is tragic enough when the
things that upset people are real;
infinitely more tragic when they are
exaggerated, only perceived or
could have been resolved but
weren't settled before they became
a full-blown disaster. When
angered, we need to stop and think
"Is it worth it?" and if we all do,
maybe one day we can return to a
quieter, more peaceful world as
God intends.

During times of tragedy

hope seems to be lifted


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Located in Virginia, nestled in
the quaint town of Blacksburg,
are eight colleges and graduate
schools, a program of 60 bache-
lor's degrees, 140 masters and
doctoral programs, 25,000 full-
time students, 100 buildings on
2,600 acres. Virginia Tech a good
place for a son or daughter to start

Tragically,
that view was
transformed
last week by a
misguided
twisted mind.
Thirty-three
lives were cut
tragically John
short. Those Hicks
families who
thought their children's futures
were all before them must now
deal with a truth that no parent
ought to face. There will be no
future, no summers back home,
no tough years making the grade,
no graduation, no falling in love,
no weddings, no grandchildren.
Try as I might, I have yet to
make sense of it. It was needless.
It was senseless. As I think about
this tragedy, I wonder what the
world has been robbed of? What
great people and accomplish-
ments were suddenly erased
from the pages of history? Maybe
an agricultural student who
would develop some new strand
of wheat and potatoes that
would yield more production per
acre. Gone! Perhaps, a mechani-
cal engineer who would design
the first aerial mapping camera
to be used in an airplane map-
ping the surface of the earth.
Gone! Perchance a person who
would take a sewing needle and
adapt it to a two pronged needle
so that a small trace of vaccine
would be trapped between the
two prongs allowing the small-
pox vaccine to be easily adminis-
tered, eradicating the virus from
history. Gone as well.
Actually, these accomplish-


ments, achieved by alumni of Vir-
ginia Tech, have already taken
place. But what if they had been
cut short? Thinking about that, I
wonder what potential influences
and discoveries have been erased
by what happened. We drop our
rock in the pond of this world and
the ripples move out through his-
tory. When a tragedy like this hap-
pens, it's like the pebble has been
snatched out of the water and the
ripples die out the influence is
gone. And that's not even taking
into account the personal toll on
those who knew the victims.
So, what do we do? Let me
answer that in Latin: Ut Prosim. It
means, "That I May Serve." It is
the motto of Virginia Tech.
Professor Liviu Librescu, who
was a survivor of he Holocaust,
was a living example of that
motto. He stood in the doorway
and did not let the shooter in. He
told his students to jump out the
second story window while he
held the gunman back. His stu-
dents made it out alive. He did
not. It is ironic that 60 years later a
survivor of the Holocaust died
protecting U.S. citizens from the
tyranny of a mad man.
"That I may serve." God is
found in us when we intentionally
serve God and serve our neigh-
bor, especially those who have
fallen. We should mourn, yes, but
we should also turn to God, and
then reach out to one another.
We should rebuild our own lives
putting God once again at the
center. Life is fragile. At any
moment walls can collapse upon
us, death is standing at the door.
When these things happen,
God is right here with us. Distress
and agony are no strangers to
God. Jesus suffered. Jesus died a
painful death.
But Jesus was also raised.
Therefore, I have hope even
when the floodwaters of life
engulf me. I have hope even
when crazy people do evil and
crazy things. I have hope even in
the valley of the shadow of death.
I have hope because love is
poured out on me by God and by
my neighbors.

Haven, "Kid's Club" and others gather to deliver much need-
ed diapers to the Glades County Health Department to be

Dredging has changed local area


Editor's note: Thanks to the
Clewiston Museum, we have
new information about the really
early days of Lake Okeechobee
with a document written by Con-
rad Menge in 1947. Mr. Menge
would have been 82 years old
when he wrote this. History
buffs, here you are. This docu-
ment was titled "Early dredging
in the Lake Okeechobee region",
by Conrad Menge, dated Septem-
ber28, 1947.

By MaryAnn Morris
"In about 1880 the Hamilton
Disston Company (also known
as the Atlantic, Gulf Coast and
Okeechobee Land Company)
purchased four million acres of
land located throughout the
southern part of the State of
Florida. The purchase price was
approximately one million dol-
lars. It was the plan of the Dis-
ston Company to reclaim the
marsh lands surrounding Lake
Okeechobee and some of the
lake bottom itself so that this
land could be used for general
farming. In order to reclaim the
land, it was necessary to lower
the level of the lake by about
four feet. All of the dredging car-
ried out during the decade
between 1880 and 1890 was
undertaken with the purpose of
draining the marshes and lower-
ing the water level in Lake Okee-
chobee.
"The first dredge used on the
project was built in 1882 or 1883
by my two brothers, Joseph
Menge and J. Fred Menge. This
dredge was constructed at Cedar
Keys. (Readers may recall that
this dredge was built at Cedar
Key from a previous story. Now
we know by whom.) This
dredge was 20 feet wide, 80 feet
long, and was of the elevator
type, using 24 buckets. The mud
was dumped in a hopper and
from there into a wooden chute
into while was pumped a stream
of water to keep the mud sliding
out on the bank. This dredge
was able to cut an average of
250 lineal feet, 24 feet wide and
6 feet deep in ten hours in soft
muck. This type of dredge was
invented by my father Anton
Menge and was known as the
Menge Patented dredge.
"After the dredge was deliv-
ered to Fort Myers, J. Fred Menge
stayed to take charge of the
dredging operations for the Dis-
ston Company. He took the
dredge to Fort Thompson Falls
under its own power, using a
stern paddle wheel operated by
a chain belt from the main
engine.
"Beginning at Fort Thompson
a few spots were dredged out in
the river from there to Lake Flirt.
A channel was then cut through
Lake Flirt and following the nar-
row stream bed on to the north
end of Bonnet Lake. It was nec-
essary to cut a channel in both
of these lakes since in some
places water was not deep
enough to float the dredge. The
main idea in this preliminary
dredging was to get the dredge
to the point where it could begin
digging a canal from Bonnet
Lake to Lake Hicpoochee.
"The first real canal was the
one that connected Bonnet Lake

This 1915 map that appeared in Mr. Small's written documentation of the Lake Okeechobee
area is dated 1915. Note the names of towns or if they exist or not at this time.

"The first real canal
was the one that con-
nected Bonnet Lake and p
Lake Hicpoochee. This
work was begun some-
time in 1884. The canal
was cut in two widths,
that is, 48 feet wide." .

and Lake Hicpoochee. This
work was begun sometime in
1884. The canal was cut in two
widths, that is, 48 feet wide.
"After the cut into Lake
Hicpoochee was completed, the
dredge was moved over to the
east side of the lake and the sec-
ond canal was started which
would connect Lake
Hicpoochee and Lake Okee-
chobee. This second canal
became known as Three-Mile
Canal. A lone cypress tree on the
edge of the canal near Lake
Okeechobee was named the Flat
Top Cypress and soon became
famous as a landmark. It carried
a flag on top of it as a beacon so
that anyone in that region could
easily. locate the Three-Mile
Canal. This canal was complet-
ed in late 1884 or early 1885.
"After the Three-Mile Canal
was finished, the dredge was
taken back to Fort Thompson to
cut off some of the short bends
in the river. All of these first
phases of dredging were com-
pleted by the latter part of 1886.
"As it turned out, the canals
from Okeechobee to
Hicpoochee, from Hicpoochee
to Bonnet Lake, and the chan-
nels through Bonnet Lake, Lake
Flirt, and on to the Caloosa-
hatchee Valley did not succeed
in lowering the lake level by four
feet as originally planned. In
fact, there were times during the
rainy season when the direction
of the current in the river
between /fort Thompson and
Hicpoochee was reversed, that
is, the water flowed "backward"
or toward the lake. The Disston
Company then made plans to
dig another canal from the south

shore of Lake Okeechobee,
beginning at Ritta River which
would drain into the Shark River
Valley. It was believed that this
additional canal would provide
the drainage needed to lower
the lake level.

December 8, 1886, the day after
my twenty-first birthday, to go to
work as engineer on the dredge
of which my brother was cap-
tain. I went to Fort Thompson
where the dredge was then
located, having just completed
the job of making some cuts to
take bends out of the river. We
took the dredge immediately to
Coffee Mill Hammock where we
stayed for about a month, mak-
ing extensive repairs of the
machinery and equipment in
preparation for digging the next
canal.


"When the repairs were com-
pleted, we took the dredge into
Lake Hicpoochee and out a
short canal from the southwest
side of the lake back to the pine
timber. This was early in 1887.
The canal, about a mile long,
was called 'Wood Yard Canal.'
Its purpose was to get to the sup-
ply of wood which was used as
fuel on the dredge. Wood was
cut in four foot lengths and
hauled to the end of the canal by
ox team. A man by the name of
Joe Horn contracted with the
Disston Company to supply
wood at three dollars a cord,
delivered to the canal. The wood
contracts were made for 100
cords at a time. When in opera-
tion, the dredge used about a
cord or a cord and a half of fat
pine wood each day."

Coping with drought in Florida


By Gene McAvoy
Horticultural Agent Hendry
County Extension Service
Drought is likely to occur in
every part of Florida at one time
or another. Because of Florida's
sandy soils, plants may experi-
ence drought stress after only a
few days without rain or irriga-
tion.
We are currently in the midst
of one of the most severe
droughts in recent memory. The
South Florida Water Manage-
ment Districts has already
begun, to institute water restric-
tions. The restrictions are
designed to be equitable, but
high priority is given to water
use for human consumption,
agriculture, and industry. Irriga-
tion for commercial and home
landscapes is under phase
II restrictions and indications
are that restrictions could get
even tighter unless significant
rainfall is received over the next
few months. It is unlikely that
this will happen. With these lim-
itations on water, the landscap-
er or homeowner must decide
how best to use the limited
water available for landscape
irrigation.
The following recommenda-
tions are given as suggestions
for management practices dur-
ing drought.
Irrigate highly visible and
intensively managed areas first.
Drought sensitive plants should
have high priority, but turf
should have lower priority.
Although turf is drought sensi-
tive, it is cheaper to replace turf
than to replace trees and
shrubs.


Water early in the morning.
"Less water loss occurs from
evaporation and wind drift in
the morning because of cooler
temperatures and less wind.
Irrigate deeply at long inter-
vals rather than frequent, shal-
low watering. Deep watering
improves drought resistance by
promoting deeper, more exten-
sive root systems. Depth of
watering should be six to twelve
inches for turf and bedding
plants, and twelve inches for
perennials, shrubs, and trees.
One inch of irrigation wets a
sandy soil to a depth of about 12
inches.
Examine the irrigation sys-
tem and repair leaks promptly.
Keep weeds under control;
weeds steal water from plants.
Don't fertilize or, if you do,
do so with a low nitrogen fertil-
izer. Fertilization stimulates
growth and increases water
needs.
Avoid unnecessary applica-
tions of pesticides that require
"watering in."
Irrigate turf only after about
30 percent of your lawn starts to
wilt. Signs of wilting include
footprints that remain in the
grass long after being made, a
bluish gray appearance to the
lawn, and a large proportion of
leaf blades that are folded in half
length-wise.
Raise the cutting height of
turf. Although taller grass uses
slightly more water than shorter
grass, a higher cutting height
promotes deeper rooting and
maintains turf quality longer.
Mow less frequently. Mowing
stresses the grass plant by
increasing respiration and

reducing root growth. In addi-
tion, never remove more than
one third he length of the blade
to prevent too much stress on
grass.
Use a sharp blade when
mowing. A sharp mower blade
produces a cleaner cut that
heals more quickly and loses
less water than a cut made by a
dull blade.
Add mulch to beds to reduce
evaporation from soil and to
moderate soil temperature,
reducing stress on roots. Final
depth of your mulch should be
3 to 4 inches after settling.
If possible, don't use over-
head sprinklers for shrub and
flower beds; hand water, flood
irrigate, or use trickle irrigation.
Greater water loss can occur
with overhead irrigation
because of evaporation and
wind drift.
Irrigate trees and shrubs only
after they start to wilt. Drooping
leaves and a change in leaf color
are signs of wilting. Many trees
and shrubs can survive drought
without irrigation, providing
they are well established and
were irrigated prior to the
drought.
Move container plants to
shaded areas so their water
needs will be reduced.
The following recommenda-
tions should be followed when
drought is so severe and water
use is so restricted that land-
scape plant survival is in ques-
tion.
Only irrigate plants when
they start to wilt.
Apply chemical wetting
agents to soil so it will absorb
water uniformly and prevent dry


spots.
For bahia grass lawns, stop
irrigating and allow the grass to
go dormant. Bahia grass will
turn brown, but it recovers well
when irrigation resumes.
Prune plants severely to
reduce leaf area.
Remove weak plants.
Thin dense beds of plants to
reduce competition among
plants.
These precautions may help
you minimize loss or damage of
your valuable landscape plants.
