Housing project proposed


Rentals to be offered
to low-income elderly
By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY - Hendry
County Commissioners have
decided to support a proposed
low-income rental housing com-
plex for the elderly to be opened
in Clewiston.
According to developer Rick


Miller, with Laurel Gardens Ltd.
of Fort Myers, the project promis-
es to provide 50 units to local res-
idents at a cost between $200
and $400 a month.
After listening to his presenta-
tion, commissioners put $20,000
of the county's community
development block grant money
toward making the project a
reality.-
Mr. Miller had requested this
amount at a previous meeting of
the county commissioners, in


order to meet the requirements
of the state for the low-income
rental facility.
The facility, he said, will be a
one-story building to be located
on West Ventura off Berner Road
in Clewiston. The location is
near medical facilities and shop-
ping plazas, the developer said.
Commissioners discussed the
idea after the presentation and,
at their April 24 meeting, decided
to contribute.
Mr. Miller has since met with

CHS athlete says

education comes first


Darris Hughes reads
to fourth graders

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - For a brief
moment last week, a group of
local elementary school stu-
dents had a chance to ask one
of their biggest sources of
inspiration almost any ques-
tion they wanted.
Darris Hughes, a 16-year-
old Junior at Clewiston High
School and a player for the
Clewiston Tigers, spent some
time reading to a class of fourth
grade students at Eastside Ele-
mentary, giving the kids a
chance to ask him what was
on their minds.
One particularly forward-
thinking little boy, Harvey Cer-
vantes, wanted to make sure


he got it straight.
"Okay, so what you meant
was class work comes first,
and then football, and a girl-
friend last?" the little boy
asked.
With a spontaneous chuck-
le, Darris said, "Yes."
It was the first time the foot-
ball player had ever read to a
room full of kids, he said at the
April 25 reading event.
He seemed to enjoy the
opportunity.
The running back was
adamant that life isn't all about
athletics and games. In
between questions and read-
ing, Darris promoted the
importance of staying on task
at school and getting good
grades.

Nancy Phillips, the county's
grants/funding specialist, to dis-
cuss the possibility of additional
funding.
Ms. Phillips said she called the
Florida Department of Commu-
nity Affairs to see whether they
would support such a project.
She was advised by officials
there that the project could
indeed qualify for funding.
"Senior citizens who are still
in temporary housing due to
Hurricane Wilma ... will have


first preference," said Mr. Miller,
noting that FEMA's aid to resi-
dents affected by the storm
would end soon.
Although the facility is not
expected to be completed until
2008 or early 2009, Mr. Miller said
he believes the facility will
accommodate any residents
affected by future storms as well.
According to Mr. Miller, the
proposed development will tar-

Drought is



third worst



since 1895


By Pete Gawda
INI FLORIDA
LAKE OKEECHOBEE - A
swarm of Florida television
trucks converged in the parking
lot at Lock 7 on the northern
shore of Lake Okeechobee at
midday on Tuesday, May 1, for a
press conference and a glimpse
a rapidly shrinking lake.
A press conference held by
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) allowed
people on each coast see what
the people of Okeechobee have
been aware of for some time -
the lake is drastically low.
"The lake is getting lower


as we speak," said Chip Merri-
am, SFWMD deputy executive
director.
Tuesday the lake was at 9.66
feet, edging ever closer to the
record low of 8.97 feet set in May
of 2001.
"This drought is serious,"
said Mr. Merriam.
He spoke of the economic
impact of the drought, its effect
on water supply and the fact that
four navigation locks have been
closed.
"It is critical that South
Floridians follow the water
restrictions so that enough of

Argument results


in head wounds


Injuries were not
life-threatening

By Jose Zaragoza
HARLEM - A man law
enforcement officials called
'mentally-unstable' was cut on
his head by the man with
whom he reportedly started a
fight.
While his injuries were not
life-threatening, emergency
workers arrived on-scene to
provide him with medical
attention before deputies took
him to jail on charges of aggra-
vated assault.
According to a witness who
saw the incident at Harlem Gar-


dens, the man carrying the
knife started arguing with one
of her neighbors. In short time,
the argument escalated and the
man who reportedly started the
fight, brandished the knife and
suffered cuts to his head before
he was overpowered.
As of last week, the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office, was not
releasing the names of the two
men involved in the fight, since
the investigation is on-going.
The woman who witnessed
the incident described the
actions of the man who fought
back as self-defense.
When the fight started, she
dialed the phone for help,

made on our lives will influence
us for the rest of our lifetime.
Her bold character, dependabili-
ty and assertive demeanor
pushed us to accomplish things
that we would have given up on
had she not given us a swift kick.
"If it wasn't for Vivian I
wouldn't have gone to school'
and finished my education," said
Megan Otero, former student.
That sentiment has been
echoed by many Seminole
Native Americans who live in the
Big Cypress Reservation. Miss
Viv was their neighbor and went
to work for the tribe as a
teacher/counselor in the 1970's.
She introduced the philosophy
that education is good for you
no matter how old you are or
where you come from. It did not
matter if you were quick to
learn, or a bit rusty. When Miss
Viv got hold of you she wouldn't
let go until you finished your
homework or passed your GED.
If a student missed too much
school, she knocked on his front
door and reminded him he had
an education to pursue. If a stu-
dent was heartbroken or in
despair, Vivian would take her to
lunch and they would iron
things out. If a teenager had just
one more chance to take a col-
lege entrance exam, Vivian
would round her up and give her
a ride to the testing center.
"No matter what she asked of
us, it was do-able," remembered
Mary Jene Koenes.
Ms. Koenes was a young
mother when Vivian Crooks
went to work for the Seminole
tribe in Big Cypress. She saw
right away that this boisterous
blonde lady was a bulldog when
it came to promoting education
and caring for the physical and
mental health of her Seminole
neighbors; but first, Vivian
Crooks would have to under-
stand the Seminole culture, eti-
quette, lifestyle and humor. She
was frustrated at the beginning.
"She came here and thought
she was going to conquer the
world. It was fascinating to
watch her adjust. Vivian turned


out to be a great lady. She
became our mother, grand-
mother and auntie; especially to
the young women she took a
shine to. Vivian gave one hun-
dred percent of herself to us,"
said Ms. Koenes fondly.
Miss Viv was also a mentor to
educators and counselors who
were recently hired and new to
the tribe's culture. She trained
employees with the same stick-
with-it policy that she used on
her Seminole family. Miss Viv
believed in her fellow workers,
too.
Maureen Vass began working
for the tribe in Hollywood where
she met Vivian about 1979. She
recalled that Vivian was a doer
and not one to sit back, or take
"no" easily.
"Vivian was always forth-
right, up front, honest and did
not pull punches. She helped
me, advised me, and because of
Vivian I got a promotion and I
will never forget that about her,"
said Ms. Vass.
James Billie, former Semi-
nole president, spoke about
Vivian Crooks with joy in his
voice. He described her with the
classic definition of the word
enthusiasm, which means
inspired by God. He mentioned
she had an intense interest in the
people around her and a zest for
life.
"She kept the place alive.
Vivian was a tremendous asset
to the Seminole people," Mr. Bil-
lie said.
You couldn't stop her from
wanting to celebrate all pas-
sages of a person's life. At a
minute's notice she was prepar-
ing for baby showers, wrapping
birthday gifts, ordering gradua-
tion gowns or picking up a cake
in town.
Even when grief or poor
health came into Vivian's life she
still held on and struggled to get
through it and start over again.
She inspired others to do the
same, to help one another and
to get the job done.
"She's probably up there
helping God direct things," said
Pastor John Hicks during her
memorial service.
Vivian Crooks was a Florida
girl, lifelong teacher, protective
mom and devoted wife. She was
also a survivor like the wily
Cracker cattle, and the uncon-
quered Seminole.

Letters to the Editor


Angels do exist... and I
can vouch for that
My name is Michael Fiore, I live
in the Catskill Mountains of N.Y. I
will be 80 years old on June 7, this
year. I retired from a contracting
business and part time police-
man; at 17,1 I joined the Navy and
served during WWII.
Last month, (March 2007), I
was driving my fifth-wheel trailer
across the state of Florida from
Cape Coral to Jupiter where my
sister is living in an assisted living
complex. At about 5 p.m. I hap-
pen to be on Rt. 80 in your town


of Clewiston, as I looked in my
rear view mirror I could see lots of
smoke emitting from my tires of
the trailer, so I pulled over to a left
turn approach lane to check the
problem. As it turned out, one of
the spring shackle bolts had
worked its way out and since I
had dual axles the missing spring
shackle pin allowed the axle to
shift and cause the tires to rub
against each other presenting a
major problem.
I wasn't there for more than
five minutes when a pick up truck
stopped along side and the driver
got out and said he had seen my
smoke and felt that I was having a


problem to say the least. (Now
here is where the Guardian Angel
comes in) This gentleman and I
introduce ourselves and he sur-
veys my problem. From his cell
phone he calls his 'helper angel'
and tells him to bring a hydraulic
jack and a couple of different
spring shackle pins. His helper
arrives in a very short time and
commences to jack up my trailer
and install the new pin. I offered
to pay for their time and material
but "Jimmy" wouldn't hear of it.
Now it is too late for me to
continue on to Jupiter and my
Guardian Angel once again
comes thru... there is a trailer


camp in sight of where we are,
and would you believe, Jimmy
knows the people that run it, so
he calls from his cell phone and
gets the ok for me to park there
over night. Jimmy gets in his truck
and says to follow him and he will
show the way there. Once there
and I am registering, Jimmy
leaves without my knowing it, but
I did get his full name and
address. Jimmy MNcDuff), you
haven't heard the last of me yet.

Garden Gate Shops plan grand opening


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - A local busi-
ness owner is preparing to unveil
her latest business Clewiston ven-
ture: The Garden Gate Shops.
"It's been a work-in-progress,"'
said owner Lisa Miller.
She said the final details are
being put together to have the
business up and running by the


proposed grand opening date on
May 12.
Ms. Miller said the location
offers several businesses located
inside one facility, including bou-
tiques and a country-themed store.
Each of the individual business
will have a unique look, she said.
The shops will also feature a
gallery, housing original paintings
and art pieces, and one-of-a-kind,
furniture pieces.


The country corner store will
stock up on country-themed
items and gifts, including antique
items.
Another store targets young
girls with bracelets, necklaces,
shoes and handbags.
A boutique will specialize in
hair accessories, jewelry items
and also carry shoes - all items
imported from the Philippines..
"It is truly a one-stop shop


palace," said Ms. Miller.
The shops are located at 113
Bond St., in the heart of downtown
Clewiston.
Store hours are Tuesdays to Fri-
days, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Satur-
days, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
For more information, contact
Ms. Miller at 983-8865.

Milestone reached in county's recovery effort


By Liza McFadden
President, CEO
Volunteer Florida
HENDRY COUNTY-Volunteer
Florida Foundation joined with the
Community Rebuilding Ecumeni-
cal Workforce (CREW) to assist in
the process of assisting FEMA to
find solutions for families impacted
by Hurricane Wilma. The commu-
nity as a whole has done a com-
mendable job of taking over the
mantle of responsibility for recov-
ery efforts that will continue.
Even while the majority of
FEMA's work is completed, the
nonprofit and faith-based groups
serving Hendry County will contin-
ue to assist those who were hardest
hit and those who are most vulner-
able because, as everyone who
lived through Wilma knows, every
survivor has his or her individual
circumstances to cope with while
overcoming the challenges created
bywind, rain and flood.
Dozens of people are still in
temporary housing and will need
additional help and guidance in
finding long-term safe and

secure shelter. This work is
ahead of us and I believe the
resources and the community's
caring spirit will prevail.
Yet, much has already 'been
accomplished. Hundreds of FEMA


trailers were brought in after the
hurricane swept through. Just over
140 remained in FEMA trailers, as
we embarked on this ambitious
project in Feb. 2007 to find shelter
for these families before FEMA's
April 24, deadline.
CREW did this work with funds
made available by FEMA and the
Florida Disaster Recovery Fund,
managed by Volunteer Florida
Foundation, along with the added
resources and cooperation of City
of Clewiston and other agencies.
Of course, there have been
numerous volunteers who have
pitched in for months on end, not
ending their efforts a few weeks
after the hurricane.
FEMA was a responsive part-
ner, bringing about $70,000 to
assist with funding CREW's staff
for this project. Volunteer Florida
Foundation also provided over
$65,000 Disaster Recovery Fund
private dollars to assist with
unmet needs, covering such
things as first and last month's rent
for many who had not been able
to save for the day they would
need to move from the trailers.


Other major partners that finan-
cially contributed to the success of
this project include the American
Red Cross and the American Asso-
ciation of Retired Persons.
Hendry County has risen to the
challenge with tremendous com-
mitment and compassion. It's truly
rewarding to work with groups
such as the CREW, and I applaud
them for taking on a task.that, if it
had been easy, would have already
been accomplished. What's been
done in Hendry County is what
leadership is all about
Affordable housing is a chal-
lenge all Florida communities face,
even more so in the wake of the
swarm of hurricanes of 2004 and
2005. It will take time to cobble
together broad-based solutions,
but in the meantime, Hendry
County's caring spirit has been a
blessing to so many in the commu-
nity in their time of need.
I thank all the groups that were
part of this humanitarian project,
particularly FEMA and CREW both
of which did the heaviest lifting dur-
ing the final two months.

County Sheriff warns about drug operations clean up


City and county
agencies work
together

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office continues
working to clear the streets of
illegal drugs, or at least put a size-
able dent in drug trafficking and
drug sales within the county.
Recently, the efforts of the
sheriff's office led to the arrest of
a Montura man, Juan Antonio
Sanchez, 33. Sanchez was
charged with operating a drug
house, possession of marijuana
with intent to sell and other


drug-related charges after inves-
tigators obtained a search war-
rant and conducted a search at
his home.
Deputies found 8.5 pounds of
suspected marijuana at the
North Trebel Street home,
according to the sheriff's office.
The amount totaled a street
value of approximately $16,000.
Investigators also found
packing materials and other
drug paraphernalia inside the
residence.
Sanchez was taken to the
Hendry County Jail on April 18,
where last week he was await-
ing trial with a $51,000 bond.
It is the latest drug-related
arrest to occur within the coun-
ty, in an ongoing operation to


clear the streets of as much ille-
gal drug activity as possible.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said his
officers "are working tirelessly,"
to follow all leads that come in.
"We will continue -working
towards keeping our community
drug free," the sheriff said. "We
will continue doing so as long as
it takes."
In another operation, the
sheriff's office partnered with
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment to execute another war-
rant.
The two agencies conducted
the operation on April 20.
Nathaniel Thomas, 35, of
Clewiston, was arrested, facing
the charge of possession of
cocaine with intent to sell.

Similar to the Montura
seizure, officers found Thomas
in a residence on West Paso
Avenue in Clewiston.
Officers found an unidenti-
fied amount of suspected crack
cocaine and a loaded 9 millime-
ter handgun in the property.
The county and city law
enforcement agencies say they
work together from time to time
to ensure a more successful
operation.
"Our guys work great togeth-
er, said Clewiston Assistant Chief
Kristine Petersen and am very
glad we had this opportunity to
show how well they can do" she
added.

Many containers of tabs, esti-

in Texas. The Burn Center is a
free service to burned children.
The transportation fund also

Hendry and Glades leaders discuss common concerns


By Patty Brant
INI FLORIDA
LABELLE - With develop-
ment and its side effects looming
all across Hendry and Glades
counties, commissioners from
both counties met in a joint
workshop session for the second
time Monday evening. Hendry
County Commission Chairman
Kevin McCarthy called the meet-
ing to order and nine of the ten
total commissioners with a num-
ber of their staff met to share
their planning status and ideas.


Commissioner Janet Taylor from
Clewiston was not present.
Hendry County Planner Vince
Cautero was up first, detailing
the West LaBelle Area plan as it
stands today. He told the group
that the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs rejected the original
plan for the area north and west
of LaBelle in 2005 with three
major concerns: transportation,
water and sewer service and an
appropriate mix of land uses. In
fact, he said, DCA was con-
cerned that the proposed density
was too low. The county is com-

Linda Fore, spokesperson for the ladies of the Scottish
Rite Club in Ft. Myers, visited Clewiston recently for a
potato bake dinner. Ned Southerland of Moore Haven,
President of the Lake Okeechobee Scottish Rite Club pre-
pared the dinner. Over $500 was raised for the children.

Fundraiser benefits kids


CLEWISTON - On March
27, the Okeechobee Scottish Rite
Club sponsored a potato bake
dinner at the Masonic Lodge in
Clewiston. Members from Fort
Myers attended.
The proceeds went to help
the Scottish Rite Clinic for Lan-
guage Disorders, ALL Children's
Specialty Care of Ft. Myers. The


deal with communication disor-
ders in children, helping them to
hear, to speak and to understand.

family's inability to pay.


mitted to keeping density low
along the river. DCA wants to
prevent sprawl using techniques
like trading densities, as is done
in Collier County, clustering and
building in compact "rural vil-
lage" style.
Hendry County has been
working with the City of LaBelle
to work out water and sewer
service for the area. Developers
may be allowed to supply those
services there temporarily, until
government is able to. He prom-
ised a revised plan this week.
The Four Corners area, where
Hendry, Glades, Lee and Char-
lotte counties meet, is expected
to become a population center,
with developments in the West
LaBelle area, Muse, eastern Lee
County and Babcock Ranch.
Glades County's Larry Hilton
talked about the proposed Muse
Village. The comprehensive plan


was approved for it last year. Just
a short distance north of the
Hendry County line, transporta-
tion issues will come into play
for both counties. In particular,
the less-than-adequate LaBelle
Bridge will be a sticking point. At
build out, Muse Village could
have as many as 3,500 dwellings.
At present 350 dwellings could
go in. The project encompasses
some 800 acres around the West
Glades Elementary School. Mr.
Hilton said the village will be
"self sustaining," with commer-
cial properties that would pro-
vide residents with daily necessi-
ties, limiting their need to drive
elsewhere, straining local roads.
He said Glades County will prob-
ably encourage commercial
zoning first, but understood that
the balance will be tricky.

Many of the Clewiston visitors enjoyed the music, and
danced along to the lyrics under the hot sun on Saturday's
Sugar Festival.


One of Clewiston's old time favorites, Derrick Hughes, made
the crowed at the Clewiston Sugar Festival go "totally country."


Many visitors to the Clewiston Sugar Festival on Saturday
enjoyed the yearly car show exhibition, with antique cars that
shine like the day it was built.

Stabbing

attempting to call her husband at
work to come home to break up
the fight.
Her daughter hid inside
because she was afraid to step
outside where the altercation was
taking place.
"I saw all the blood," said a
second neighbor who panicked
when she saw that one of the
men had been stabbed.
A law enforcement officer
arrived in time to break up the
fight before anyone got hurt more
seriously.
The second man in the fight
told officers he did not know the
man who had attacked him and
could not say why he was
attacked.
While deputies interviewed
the man who had been stabbed
and emergency workers wrapped
his head in gauze, the man sat
smiling to himself.
J. Soto, with .the sheriff's
office, said the man has a history
of mental problems"and "is in and
out of" mental health facilities.
According to him, the man can
usually be seen walking around
the area. Deputies said he is
homeless.

Mr. Merriam thanked the
media for publicizing the water

said now they had a chance to
visually see what Lake Okee-

Ben Nelson, a meteorologist
with the state department of
emergency management, said
the 2006 drought is the third
worst since 1895. He also pre-

could ask the sports star. Darris
was more than happy to oblige.
Ms. Kane, the students' teacher,
had also been his teacher in ele-
mentary school.
Darris talked about playing
football from the age of five. He
said he always wanted to be a
Clewiston Tiger and dreams of
one day playing for the Philadel-
phia Eagles in the National Foot-

understands how important the

was to prevent wildfires.
"Everybody needs to do their
part," he added. "Our main con-
cern is that we'll have a La Nina
develop this summer in the
equatorial Pacific. La Nina typi-
cally means drought in Florida."
A La Nina occurs when cool-
er than average waters are
recorded in equatorial Pacific
waters. This shifts the jet stream
northward, preventing storm
systems and rain from impacting
Florida in the fall, winter and
spring.

watershed development, said
the drought brought mixed
blessings. Her organization has
been replanting native vegeta-
tion and dredging muck from the
lake bottom in an effort to get it
back to its naturally sandy condi-
tion.
At the May 10 SFWMD board


role of education is in his achiev-
ing that.
At the end of the reading ses-
sion, Darris said he enjoyed him-
self. He thought it went pretty
well.
He said he was as apprecia-
tive of his own reading teacher,
Mr. Schiller, "for being such a
positive role model and influ-
ence in my life."

of governors meeting, more
stringent water restrictions could
be put in place.
Mr. Merriam said if the area
received 3 feet of rainfall, there
would still be a drought.
He said law enforcement and
code enforcement officials have
been given ticket books and
training to enforce the drought
regulations. Concerned citizens
have been calling SFWMD to
report violations and they have
been referring them to the
appropriate law enforcement
agency.
Mr. Merriam spoke of the pos-
sibility of year-round conserva-
tion measures.
When asked about saltwater
intrusion in coastal wells, he said
there are four wells that they are
monitoring daily.

Sheriff's Sub-station fate uncertain


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
LABELLE - The hurricane-
ravaged Clewiston Sheriff's Sub-
station is not suitable to be
repaired or remodeled, accord-
ing to the findings of Fort Myers
architect Dan Cruz. However,
LaBelle resident Ernie Reddish
took issue with that assessment
at the Hendry County Commis-
sion's April 24 meeting in
LaBelle, saying the building
could be salvaged.
Continual flooding, the likely'
need for improvements to meet
code in several areas and the
likely need for an asbestos sur-
vey and removal add to the
issues with the building. Reno-
vations would cost about $1.6
million, according to the archi-
tect, but does not include the
building's poor parking facilities
and undesirable location. Insur-
ance still may settle on the build-
ing and rent for the sheriff's
office until a permanent location
for the government center is
found .and completed. The deci-
sion of what to do with the old
building has been left for a later
date.
Currently, the county is leas-
ing space at the old K-Mart plaza
in Clewiston for offices on the
east side of the county. The Sher-
iff's Office is being housed at the
old Clewiston Chamber of Com-
merce building on US 27.

get residents 55 years or older
who meet certain eligibility
guidelines. The 50 units will con-
sist of one and two bedroom
units; the facility itself will feature
a club house.
The price range, he explained,
puts it within most seniors' reach.

Developments
on agenda
Commissioners approved a
request to rezone 98.97 acres for
Eagle Farm II on the south side of
SR 80, across from the entrance to
The Glades (formerly Hendry
Isles Resort) from general agricul-
ture to a Planned Unit Develop-
ment (PUD). It was approved
with a list of stipulations, includ-
ing the addition of a turning lane
on SR 80 into the property, which
was requested by a number of
neighborhood residents. Sheriff
Ronnie Lee concurred with the
request. The Level of Service
(LOS) on SR 80 is currently "B."
A mining operation will be first
to operate there, to be followed
later with possible residential
units. The request was approved
over Commissioner Darrell Har-
ris' dissenting vote. Commission-
er Harris had originally moved to
deny the mine application, but his
motion died for lack of a second.
The board also approved
Robert Morrison's request for a
rezone from A-2 to PUD to allow a
single family subdivision of 32
units including a lake on 163
acres west of Kirby Thompson
Avenue just south of the Glades
County line.
On the eastern side of the
county, the board approved a
rezoning from general agriculture
to PUD for South Point Airpark, a
neighborhood of single family
dwellings, with a density of one
unit per five acres and a 2.9 acre


minimum. It is to include a com-
munity aviation area, picnic area,
pavilion with kitchen and rest-
room and walking/biking trails.
The existing airstrip is permitted
by FDOT and FAA. The commis-
sioners unanimously approved
the development County Planner
Vince Cautero characterized as
"well thought out."
County supports
housing for elderly
The board approved a $20,000
commitment in CDBG Disaster
Funds for the proposed Laurel
Gardens elderly housing develop-
ment in Clewiston.
The City of Clewiston had
approved up to $10,000 in waived
fees through its building depart-
ment. However, Commissioner
Bill Maddox moved that the coun-
ty commit the full amount to the
project rather than just the half
requested of the county. The 50-
unit senior rental housing com-
munity will consist of one and
two bedroom, one story apart-
ments with a community center.
It will be on West Ventura Street,
close to medical facilities.
There are still 17 senior citi-
zens in FEMA trailers in Clewis-
ton; 52 families remain in FEMA
trailers in Hendry County, 39 of
them in Clewiston.
Similar funding for a senior
housing project in LaBelle, Semi-
nole Court, had to have been
approved on or before April 10.

Five local teenagers accused of robbery


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Clewiston
Police .officers arrested five
teenagers Saturday, April 14. The
teens are accused of beating and
robbing an 18-year-old as he
walked to a local grocery store.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment received a 911 call from
the victim, Juan Perez, stating he
had been beaten and robbed by
three individuals.
Once on the scene on West
Sagamore Avenue, near the U-
Save Supermarket, officers met
with brothers Juan Perez and
Andres Perez.
Juan said he was attacked by
the three young suspects, who
demanded he hand over any
money he had on him.
Andres told officers he "ran
for his life."
Juan had been severely beat-
en throughout his body, accord-
ing to the report. EMS workers
were called to the scene to treat
the victim for his injuries.
According to witnesses, the
three individuals fled from the
scene in a small blue or green
car.
One person who witnessed


the incident told officers she
knew one of the suspects who
had attacked Mr. Perez. The wit-
ness said she knew him from
school.
Following up on this lead,
officers visited an address on file.
The homeowner said the boy
didn't live there, but said he
knew his parents and would call
them to let them know what was
going on. His mother then told
officers her son was staying over
at friend's house, with a vehicle
that seemed to match the
description given by witnesses.
.Investigators located and
interrogated the suspect.
According to the report, the
investigators found evidence
that the perpetrators included
three boys and two girls.
One of the girls reportedly
acted as the getaway driver in
the robbery.
After the robbery, all five
allegedly divided the money.
Those arrested were:
* John Johnathan Mitchell,
16, charged with robbery (sec-
ond degree felony) and battery
(first degree misdemeanor);
* Melanie Ann Patacco , 16,
charged with accessory after the


fact (second degree felony) and
petit theft (first degree misde-
meanor);
* Danielle Bird, 16, charged
with accessory after the fact
(second degree felony) and petit
theft (first degree misde-
meanor);
* Nathan Cox, 16, charged
with robbery (second degree
felony) and battery (first degree
misdemeanor); and,
* Daniel Hannam, 16,
charged with robbery (second
degree felony) and battery (first
degree misdemeanor).
The male suspects were
arrested and transported to the
Fort Myers Juvenile Detention
Center. The two female suspects
were released to their parents
under a home detention contract
until their scheduled court
appearances.

Don't let life's aggravations 'spoil' your positive attitude


CLC AND SAV


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I enjoy cold iced tea and Diet
Mountain Dew. Orange juice is one
of my all time favorites. But every
now and then there is nothing that
beats the juice of the cow. There is
nothing much better than having a
nice ice cold glass of milk with a
warm chocolate chip cookie or a
rich gooey brownie.
Some years ago, I readied
myself for the cow juice blessing. I
had just taken a batch of cookies
out of the oven and popped one in
my mouth. I reached in the refriger-
ator and took out the jug of milk
and took a couple of gulps to help
wash it down. (You can do that
when you aren't married!)
What happened next, however,
was not the joy that I had envi-


sioned. The cookie experience and
all the good that went along with it
was ruined as I spewed out what I
had just taken in. The milk was
sour. I learned
that day that
there is a price
to be paid for
leaving milk out
too long. Bad
milk can ruin a
good thing.
Good milk
turns bad when
it's not kept John
coolenough. Hicks
Good dispo-
sitions can turn bad for the same
reason. If we let aggravations or irri-
tations simmer too long without
giving them a period of time for
cooling off, we can stew ourselves
into a bad attitude. Just like bad
milk, a bad attitude can ruin a good


thing. As one of my friends shared,
"Bad attitudes are the darkrooms
where "negatives" are developed."
In the tenth chapter of the
Gospel of Luke we find a classic
example of the sweet becoming
sour, of good becoming bad, of
positive becoming negative.
Martha invited Jesus and the disci-
ples to dinner. While Martha was
busy doing all of the things that
needed to be done, her sister was
sitting down listening to Jesus
teach. This annoyed Martha to no
end. What had started out to be an
attitude of joy and service for
someone special - quickly cur-
dled. Martha lost perspective and
her focus turned more towards
herself and her situation. With
time, she developed an attitude
and her attitude spoiled the gift
she was offering.
A bad attitude can ruin a good


thing. Satan knows that. Satan
uses that. Notice that he didn't
take Martha out of the kitchen; he
took away her purpose in the
kitchen. The adversary won't turn
you against the church; he will
turn you toward yourself in the
church. He won't take you away
from your work; he'll take away
your joy in your work.
There is a life-lesson here for us.
We have a choice everyday regard-
ing the attitude we will embrace for
that day. We cannot change our
past. We cannot change the fact
that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
We can however, change how we
react to it.
We are in charge of our atti-
tudes. To keep an attitude from
souring, treat it like you would a jug
of milk: Keep it cool and check it
regularly to make sure it's good.


At what cost has God been taken out of schools?

Sincerely, A Concerned Student.
Reply: Dear Concerned Student;
Sorry, I am not allowed in schools!


Sincerely, GOD.
How did this get started? Let's
see, I think it started when Madeline
Murray O'Hare complained she did-
n't want any prayer in our schools.
And we said, Okay. Then, someone
said you better not read the Bible in
school, the Bible that says, "Thou
shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal
and love your neighbor as yourself."
And we said, Okay.
Dr. Benjamin Spock said we
shouldn't spank our children when
they misbehave because their little
personalities would be warped and
we might damage their self-
esteem. And we said, "An expert
should know what he's talking
about." So we won't spank them
anymore.
Then someone said, "Teachers
and principals better not discipline
our children when they misbe-
have." And the school administra-
tors said, "No faculty member in
this school better touch a student


when they misbehave because we
don't want any bad publicity. And
we surely don't want to be sued."
And we accepted their reasoning.
Then someone said, "Let's let
our daughters have abortions if
they want, and they won't even
have to tell their parents." And we
said, "That's a grand idea!" Then
some wise school board member
said, "Since boys will be boys and
they're going to do it anyway, let's
give our sons all the condoms they
want, so they can have all the fun
they desire and we won't have to
tell their parents they got them at
school." And we said, "That's
another great idea!"
Then, some of our top elected
officials said, "It doesn't matter what
we do in private as long as we do
our jobs." And we said, "It doesn't
matter what anybody, including the
President, does in private as long as
we have jobs and the economy is
good." Someone else took that


appreciation a step further publish-
ing pictures of nude children. Then,
stepping further still, made them
available on the Internet.
We said, "Everyone's entitled to
free speech!" And the entertain-
ment industry said, "Let's make TV
shows and movies that promote
profanity, violence and illicit sex.
Let's record music that encourages
rape, drugs, murder-suicide, and
satanic themes." And we said, "It's
just entertainment and has no
adverse effect and nobody takes it
seriously anyway, so go right
ahead!" Now we're asking our-
selves why our children have no
conscience, why they don't know
right from wrong, and why it does-
n't bother them to kill strangers,
classmates or even themselves.
Undoubtedly, if we thought
about it long and hard enough, we
could figure it out. I'm sure it has a
great deal to do with, "We reap
what we sow!"

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee











What you don't say is as important as what you say


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
One of my friends who minis-
ters at a large, inner-city church
has a sign as you enter his office
complex that
reads "Don't ', . ..
speak unless
you can
improve on the ;
silence!" That i
certainly got
my attention
the first time I
read it; and
gave me pause Samuel S.
for thought. Thomas
Some other
person changed another well-
known saying "When all is said
and done..." by concluding it
with"....there's a lot more said
than done." Many times, I've
watched two persons on televi-
sion who have opposing views
trying to talk. Before one is fin-
ished, the other will chime in to


interrupt. Usually, the first speaker
keeps on talking; both talking at
the same time and neither one lis-
tening to the other. It is as if the
one who can shout the loudest
and longest will have people sup-
porting him.
The writer of Ecclesiastes tells
us "there is a time to be silent and a
time to speak" (Chapter 3, Verse 7).
We don't get many clues from him
about just when it is best to speak
or best to keep silent; but I have
often observed that I can "say"
something by my silence. Some-
times "out of the blue" someone
will come with a question that
sounds like they have already
decided what the answer is sup-
posed to be. I get the direction they
wish to go by the nature of the
question ("You don't really believe
that..., do you?" types of questions)
and find the person really doesn't
want an answer but an affirmation
that we are like-minded and he is
right! I usually try to be polite but
do not answer; an answer will do
no good when there is no question


Area Church News in Brief


being asked.
Isaiah's summary about the
death of Jesus tells us "He was
oppressed and afflicted, yet He did
not open His mouth; he was led
like a lamb to the slaughter and as a
sheep before her shearers is silent,
He opened not His mouth" (Chap-
ter 53:7). He reflects that there was
a time to be silent! Why would
have Jesus been silent?
I believe because He knew how
things were going to turn out, He
knew of the futility of speaking, of
entering into a "shouting match"
with people who already had their
minds made up by selfishness, jeal-
ousy, their own interests, sin. There
would be another time to speak.
It would come a few days later
when He met His companions on
the beach and asked them if they
had any fish. It would come in the
upper room when Jesus would
simply say to Thomas "Here, put
your fingers in the nail prints..." and
the words would be few, hardly
breaking the silence, but they
would speakvolumes.


My guide has been to watch, to
share an opinion when I think the
questions are asked in sincerity, to
say why I feel as I do if asked, to lis-
ten as best I can to those who are
sincerely questioning (versus those
who feel their job is to convert) and
to be ready to remain silent.
A former Air Force Colonel who
went into the ministry later in life
used to say "A man convinced
against his will is of the same opin-
ion still." He had a point. I am will-
ing to wait to speak if I think it will
mean that I might really be heard.
The Lord didn't need to speak
much at the end of His earthly life;
He knew how things were going to
turn out. That has been a helpful
example to me when I think I
know how things are going to turn
out, too.
Recently, among those who
asked for our prayers was a person
who asked for healing - without
surgery. The nature of his problem
was such that in the majority of
cases, surgery is required. I under-
stood his apprehension; under-


stood that it wasn't our place to tell
God what means to use to answer
and I also understood the place for
silence in our contacts. Finally, he
told me that surgery was necessary
and I responded "You'll do great!"
and reminded him of what has
happened in my life when I try to


tell God what to do and not to lis-
ten. It applies to others and to me
as well - silence can speak vol-
umes; persuasion comes in honest
sharing; avoid useless shouting
matches. We can all learn to listen
and let God's will speak to us. Bet-
ter for the blood pressure, too!

Edison Community College prepares for future expansion


By Kristin Hunter
INI Florida
LABELLE - The Edison Col-
lege board held its monthly meet-
ing at the LaBelle High School
auditorium for the very first time
on Tuesday, April 17. The focus of
the meeting was what has been
learned from the Virginia Tech
incident along with the growth of
the Hendry-Glades campus.
Hendry-Glades campus Dean
Lucinda Kelley gave a presenta-
tion on the growth of the LaBelle
campus. She began her presenta-
tion saying what a great staff she
has including: Administrative Spe-
cialist Cindy Simmons, Adminis-
trative Specialist Heath Daniels,
Learning Assistance Lab Parapro-
fessional Marie Sprouse and Test
Proctor Crystal Saldana. She went
on to mention some of the cam-
pus' statistics. There are currently
43 percent full time enrolled stu-
dents, with 57 percent of the stu-
dent body enrolled part time with
less than 12 credit hours; 16 per-
cent of those students are dual
enrolled, meaning they are still
currently enrolled in high school


HENDRY COUNTY - The
Winds of Change highlights how
parenting has changed over the
years as a result of changes in
social, cultural and demograph-
ic trends in families. The pin-
wheel represents this change
and the message of April, Child
Abuse Prevention Month. This
year 834 pinwheels were given
out in local communities. Each
pinwheel represents a new birth
in our community and an oppor-
tunity to support a new family
from the very beginning.
In Hendry County there were
757 births in 2005 and in Glades
County there were 77.
"Parenting is not an easy job,
young parents need our sup-
port," says Judy Paskyan, Pro-
gram Manager for Healthy Fami-
lies. "Babies do not come with
instructions and young parents
need to understand how their
baby develops and grows, as
well as, how important they are
in the lives of their children."
The Healthy Families Pro-
gram is focused on the preven-
tion of child abuse and neglect
and helps families from the very
beginning with a positive parent-
ing approach. Family Support
Workers support parents in
being the best parents they can
be by learning about their child's
development, the importance of
preventive health and creating a
safe home environment for the


as well. The vast majority of the
student body, 71 percent, is
female; 49 percent have a GPA of
3.0 or above. Forty-six percent of
the student body is of minority
background, 37-38 percent are
Hispanic. Sixty-nine percent of the
students are between the ages of
15-24 and 60 percent are 21 years
old and under.
This year, three students Brian-
na Gutierrez, Carhen Torrealba
and Angela Hester, will receive
both their AA and high school
diploma.
Enrollment continues to climb.
Currently the full time equivalency
(FTE) count is 249 and the head
count is 584. Mrs. Kelley pointed
out that Edison is a tangible, prac-
tical and affordable college. The
LaBelle location offers complete
degree offerings in both AA and
AS degrees. The college is trying
to reestablish the EMS program
and has started English for Acade-
mic Purpose, or EAP class specifi-
cally designed for students who
need English for their studies. The
campus is also offering the CLEP, a
College Level Exam Placement
Test. This test is a subject area test.


If a student passes the test, college
credit will be earned for that sub-
ject. It is a nationally administered
test and for many students, a great
opportunity. The LaBelle office is
in the process of hiring a full time
Advisor/Financial Aid Officer to
help students with all their finan-
cial/academic needs and will soon
also be hiring a Student Service
Specialist as well. They have
recently hired a part-time IT (Infor-
mation Technology) support per-
son who has been well used
already. There is now an on site-
security officer who works during
school hours.
The College Placement Test is
being offered at local high schools
each semester for students who
didn't take the SAT or ACT. The
LaBelle office has recently taken
approximately 70 students from
LaBelle High School to visit the
main Edison campus located in
Lee County.
Mrs. Kelley has been doing
classroom presentations at high
schools, recruiting students to join
Edison as well as going to senior
events, awards and assemblies.
Edison has currently been

children. Everyone can help pro-
tect our children by:
* Being a role model by
demonstrating for children and
other adults how conflicts can
be resolved without hitting or
yelling;
* Volunteering your time to
help strengthen families in our
community;
* Getting to know your
neighbors and their children or
grandchildren;
* Offering to baby-sit for free
to give stressed parents a little
time for themselves;
* Becoming a mentor for a


child or new parent;
* Donating your children's
outgrown clothing or toys to a
family in need;
* Learning what child abuse
is;
* Recognizing the common
signs of abuse;
* Reporting Abuse.

Hendry-Glades Education Day, a
Job and Career Expo, the Work-
force Council of SWFL and had
booths at both the Swamp Cab-
bage and Sugar Festival. Recently
the Richard H. Rush library in Lee
County donated some much
needed furniture to the LaBelle
Edison office.
The Hendry-Glades campus
will be awarding 12 HOPE schol-
arships this year. HOPE stands for
Helping One Person Excel. This
year's Thanksgiving Food Drive
raised over $2,000. The Hendry-
Glades campus has had two finan-
cial aid weekend workshops so
far and will have another one on
May 5. The Hendry-Glades cam-
pus has received two new build-
ings- a DLA or Developmental
Learning Lab and a classroom full
of computers.

HRMC to celebrate National Nurses Week


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
National Nurses Week is cele-
brated annually from May 6, (also
known as National Nurses Day)
through May 12, (the birthday of
Florence Nightingale, the founder
of modern nursing). During this
week long event, nurses are rec-
ognized from coast to coast for
the work they perform and the
role they play in the delivery of
healthcare.
According to projections from
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS), RNs top the list of the 10
occupations with the largest pro-
jected job growth in the next five
years. Although RNs have listed
among the top ten growth occupa-
tions in the past, this is the first time
in recent history that RNs have
ranked first. These projections are
widely used in career guidance, in


planning education and training
programs and in studying long-
range employment trends. Accord-
ing to the BLS report, more than 2.9
million RNs will be employed in the
year 2012, up 623,000 from the
nearly 2.3 million RNs employed in
2002. However, the total job open-
ings, which include both job
growth and the net replacement of
nurses, will be more than 1.1 mil-
lion. This growth, coupled with
current trends of nurses retiring or
leaving the profession and fewer
new nurses, could lead to a short-
age of more than one million nurs-
es by the end of this decade. (Dur-
ing Career Day at Clewiston High
School, David McClusky, from
Hendry Regional Medical Center,
encouraged students to seek
careers in healthcare related fields.)
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter and its associated clinics staff a
total of 64 nursing related person-


nel, which consist of Advanced
Registered Nurse Practitioners, Cer-
tified Registered Nurse Anes-
thetists, Registered Nurses,
Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified
Medical Assistants, and Certified
Nursing Assistants. HRMC will host
a reception in honor of its nursing
staff on Wednesday, May 9, from 5
p.m. to 7 p.m. in the hospital con-
ference room.
National Nurses Week is a great
time for the for people in the com-
munity to celebrate the spirit of
nursing and other health profes-
sionals - Join Hendry Regional
Medical Center in thanking those
individuals who work very hard to
administer healthcare. with kind-
ness and compassion, educate
patients and the public about vari-
ous medical conditions, and pro-
vide advice and emotional support
to patients' family members.
