Seniors may get tax break


County considers
increased homestead
exemption

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY -
Hendry County Commissioners
are debating whether or not to
extend the homestead exemp-
tion to senior citizens by an
additional $25,000. The move,


depending on how many peo-
ple would qualify, has the
potential of lowering the
amount of property taxes that
now go to the county.
The board discussed the
issue during its May 8 meeting at
Clewiston City Hall, during
which Mark Lapp, the county's
attorney, gave an overview of
the proposal.
According to Mr. Lapp, every
resident in the county is entitled
to a $25,000 homestead exemp-


tion, which means that, as an
example a $100,000 home now
can only be taxed for $75,000 of
its price.
In 1999, a new law gave
municipalities and counties the
discretion of awarding seniors
with an annual income of
$20,000 or less up to a $50,000
homestead exemption. Hendry
County was one of the counties
voting to implement the new
law locally.
Last year, Florida voters


Staying in doors in the rain: Kids enjoy themselves

Children at the Mother Goose Learning Center in Clewiston had to stay inside to play

passed a constitutional amend-
ment that now gives cities and
counties the option to increase
the homestead exemption by an
additional $25,000 - meaning
that eligible seniors would qual-
ify for up to a $75,000 home-
stead exemption.
With many municipalities
relying heavily on property taxes
to fund services and stay afloat,
the question now is whether the
county is willing to exercise the
rights as allowed by the Novem-


ber 2006 amendment.
According to Mr. Lapp, com-
missioners have the flexibility of
choosing, if they vote to
approve the increase, if they
would like to offer the full
$25,000 exemption, or any
other figure below that amount.
Commissioners were hesi-
tant to make a quick decision.
"I couldn't make a decision
tonight," said Commissioner

Three bodies



found burned



after accident


Officials unable to
identify victims due
to severe burns

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY COUNTY - The
lives of three people ended in
a fiery crash just three days
before Mother's Day.
The victims were involved
in a head-on collision on S.R.
80, the impact of the crash set-
ting all of the vehicles on fire.
According to information
provided by the Florida Highway
Patrol, the accident happened at
approximately 6:14 a.m.


Two vehicles were
involved, a Chevrolet Camaro
that was traveling east on S.R.
80 and a Chrysler or Dodge
Van that was traveling west.at
the time of the crash.
Officials said it appeared
that the driver of the Camaro
was attempting to pass vehi-
cles ahead on him and may
have miscalculated and
crashed head-on with the van
traveling in the opposite direc-
tion.
The resulting explosion
apparently charred the auto-
mobiles and the surrounding
ground. The occupants of the
vehicles trapped inside.

A fond farewell


for Angie Kelley


27-year city
employee retires

By Ideybis Gonzalez
CLEWISTON - To congrat-
ulate a longtime employee,
most companies offer a sensi-
ble gift to the parting employee
- a sympathetic card, flowers,
or, if an employee was an inte-
gral part of the operation of
that company, a gold watch.
When Angie Kelley heads
out to her new home in Geor-
gia, she'll take the kindest thing
her co-workers thought would
suit her: a whiskey bottle.
In her going-away party last
week at the Clewiston Country
Club - where she also began
her career with the city of


Clewiston - Ms. Kelley was
given that, and a T-shirt that
read, "When I drink whiskey, I
get frisky."
She received a gold
bracelet, though it wasn't
immediately certain which of
the two gifts she'd cherish
more.
Ms. Kelley has spent 27
years of her life working for the
city of Clewiston, working up
from her first job at the country
club, to moving on to the utili-
ties department, before finally
settling at the recreation
department as a secretary.
Before long, Ms. Kelley
became the recreation director,
caring for all of the city's parks
and implementing worthwhile
programs to keep all residents

Small turn-out at domestic violence outreach meeting


Agencies
offer help

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Only nine
women attended a meeting on
domestic violence at St. Mar-
garet's Catholic Church in Clewis-
ton. Organizers had hoped to
reach a much larger crowed of
Hispanic women, but perhaps
anticipated the small numbers.
"Talking about the issues in a
group does help to get the servic-
es to where they are needed; the
issue of having the victims come
forward is the hard part," said
Ana Rivera, Hispanic Outreach
Specialist for Hendry/Glades
Behavioral Health Clinic. "A lot of


them are really scared of their
aggressor."
May is Domestic and Family
Violence Prevention Month. To
highlight the importance of
women speaking out and having
their voices heard Ms. Rivera is
reaching out to the community.
Ms. Rivera said she works with
many women very often who
have been the victims of domestic
violence - women who some-
times show up with bruises on
their face.
Although the frequency with
which the crime is happening
seems to be on the rise, Ms.
Rivera struggles with the fact that
many women choose not to ask
anyone for help.
Within the Hispanic commu-
nity, women fearful of getting
their husbands in danger with


the law sometimes cope quietly
with the violence and rarely dis-
cuss the issue.
In the meeting held last
month, Crystal Santana, rural
victim advocate for Abuse Coun-
seling and Treatment Inc., an
agency out of Fort Myers,
stressed education.
"It's about information," Ms.
Santana said, "letting them know
that if they are the victim of
domestic violence they do have a
way out."
According to Ms. Santana, help
is available. Agencies like hers are
available to offer counseling serv-
ices and a supportive hand to
women, even helping them do
something as necessary as
requesting a protection order
from a judge to end the cycle of
violence.


Ms. Rivera encouraged
women to speak out rather than
remain silently intimidated.
"Increased awareness and
open discussion helps to bring
the domestic violence issue out
into the open," said Ms. Rivera.
"There are many organizations,
support groups and treatment
centers that people can contact,
help lines and 1-800 free call
numbers."
For more information about
domestic and family violence
prevention, contact Ana Rivera
at Hendry Glades Behavioral
Health Clinic at 983-1423, or
Crystal Santana at Abuse Coun-
seling and Treatment Inc. at 1-
800-500-1119, option 2.

tive for cocaine, with a total
weight of 19 grams. All four sus-
pects were then transported to

requesting funds from FCT each
year illustrates a strong and con-
tinued need for this sort of com-
munity support."
Each year the FCT awards $66
million in Florida Forever fund-
ing for local land acquisition
projects throughout the state.
Cities, counties and nonprofit
environmental organizations
may receive FCT grants of up to
$6.6 million annually. Both the
number of applications and the
amount of funds requested in
the 2007 funding cycle are the
largest in the program's history.
One year ago, the FCT
received 115 applications from


,"Florida Communities FCT provides needed fund-
ing for local governments as they pursue their
vision of stronger, greener, and healthier commu-
nities. Through FCT and Florida Forever, we are
making a positive impact on Florida's landscape."
- Ken Reecy,
FCT Community Program Manager


85 local governments and non-
profit environmental organiza-
tions, asking for a total of $240
million in grants for local preser-
vation efforts. For the coming
year, local communities have
requested a combined $272 mil-
lion in Florida Forever funds
from FCT.
"Florida Communities FCT
provides needed funding for
local governments as they pur-
sue their vision of stronger,
greener, and healthier communi-
ties," said Ken Reecy, FCT Com-
munity Program Manager.
"Through FCT and Florida Forev-
er, we are making a positive
impact on Florida's landscape."
The 118 projects proposed for
FCT funding in the 2007 applica-
tion cycle will be evaluated and
scored over the next several
months. The Florida Communities
FCT Governing Board will convene
in September to determine which
projects will actually be funded.
Unlike other Florida Forever pro-
grams, ownership of land pre-
served through FCT grants remains


within the local community.
Since its inception in 1991,


Florida Communities FCT has
provided more than $600 million
to local governments to preserve
parks and recreational space.
DCA helps Florida's communi-
ties meet the challenges of
growth, reduce the effects of dis-
asters and invest in the commu-
nity. For more information

Mark Young debuts his first book, 'Devil's Pillar'


Mark Young, a former resident
of Okeechobee, Clewiston and
Belle Glade has put his name on his
first novel "Devil's Pillar."
"This is the first step of a long
journey," said Mr. Young. "Devil's
Pillar is a mainstream horror novel,
but with a very important mes-
sage."
Mr. Young said that ironically, it's
a message he has come to live
through himself.
"Underneath the story is a per-
sonal struggle for the main charac-
ter," he explained. "Representa-
tions of evil face us all in our every
day lives and can come in many dif-
ferent forms. But to lose your faith
in God, in love and more impor-
tantly in yourself, leaves you vulner-
able to those things that exist that
can eat away at your soul."
He wrote the novel, which is
being published by Publish
America, several years ago, but


the lessons outlined within the
novel remain timeless chal-
lenges for us all.
"Only a faith in God, an
understanding of who you are as
a person, and
\ a strong belief
that love truly
does conquer
all can bring
about needed
change in your
life," he said.
"Like my main
character, it's
Mark taken some
Young hard things to
make me
understand those lessons, but I
still believe that the impossible is
possible."
So what's next for the first-time
author?
"Devil's Pillar has an entertain-
ment value, but it's my one goal


Shooting in Clewiston


leaves one dead


in life to write the next great
American novel and I won't rest
until I have completed that goal,"
he said. "That project is in the
works, but I will also have anoth-
er novel completed by the end of
the year, which I am excited
about, as well. It is more along
the lines of mystical/mystery, but
underneath it all it is a story of
two people in love who have to
go through a lot to understand
what that love really is."


Mr. Young said that project is
also in the works, but has not
decided on an ending yet.
"I basically have two endings
to this particular story, but I
believe that this story is ongoing
and that the two main characters
still have much to learn as the
story begins to unfold. My charac-
ters are all a part of who I am.
How it ends is up to them and I'll
leave it at that," he said.
Devil's Pillar is a story about


Detective Sylvester Aliano, who
finds himself on the trail of a new
serial killer, which he quickly real-
izes is driven by an evil force that he
cannot yet comprehend.
In pursuit of the killer, Sylvester
takes a journey that leads him
directly into the path of the ultimate
evil. In order to succeed, he will
need to confront his own tragic
past and rediscover a faith in God
long abandoned.
With unlikely allies, Sylvester will


find himself in a fight for his own
life, sanity and soul. At the end of the
trail, a showdown awaits, a battle
between good and evil on evil's
home ground - the Devil's Pillar.
The book is scheduled for
nationwide release in June, but is
now available at the Publish Ameri-
ca online bookstore at pub-
lishamerica.com.
Mr. Young also write a daily
satire column for liveweston.com
entitled Tales from the Mark Side.


Officials continue
gathering information
about the crime

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office is investigat-
ing a shooting incident that left one
man dead at the Twin Lakes Trailer
Park over the weekend.
According to information pro-
vided by the sheriff's department,
the call was received shortly after
10 p.m. on Sunday, May 13, report-
ing that there was gunfire at a resi-
dence at the park and a person had
been shot.
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
deputies responded to the scene
minutes after the call was made
and found the victim, John Irvin
Tull, 44, lying on the floor of the
home.
Mr. Tull appeared to have been
shot. Emergency workers treated


Mr. Tull's injuries, but were unable
to help him. He was pronounced
dead at the scene.
The police report did not indi-
cate how many times he was hit, or
where he was hit.
According to Devon Land, Chief
with the Sheriff's Office, the agency
has very few leads at the moment,
except for a witness who spotted a
small car with two individuals
inside leaving the area after the
shooting.
On Monday morning, deputies
and FDLE (Florida Department of
Law Enforcement) agents were on
the scene gathering evidence.
Law enforcement agencies are
not releasing any further informa-
tion at the time, since the investiga-
tion is ongoing.
Officials encourage anyone
with any information about this
case to contact the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office at (863) 674-4060 or
FDLE at (239) 278-7170.

University of Florida
GAINESVILLE - In a prime
example of how an exotic insect
can wreak havoc on landscape
plants and cause millions of dollars
in damage, the Asian cycad scale
has invaded South Florida and
quickly spread throughout the
state.
The tiny pest's only host is the
cycad - also called a sago palm -
and experts say the scale is proba-
bly the single most important threat
to wild cycad populations around
the world.
Its rapid spread in Florida sug-
gests that the insect has few effec-
tive natural enemies in the state,
said Catharine Mannion, an assis-
tant professor of ornamental ento-
mology at UF's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences.
"The insect began attacking the
plants in South Florida in the mid-
1990s, when the pest was acciden-
tally introduced to the Miami area
from Southeast Asia," she said.
"Within a few years, 80 percent of
the king and queen sago palms in
South Florida were killed, and the
pest has killed almost half of the
king and queen sago palms in Cen-
tral Florida. The cycad nursery
industry has been devastated, with
economic losses in the millions."
She said two commonly grown
cycads - king and queen sagos -
are susceptible to attack by the
Asian cycad scale. An infestation
can coat a medium-sized sago
within months and kill it within a
year.
"In areas with high infestations,
management of the pest will be a
continuous and long-term effort,"
Ms. Mannion said. "If infested
cycads go unmanaged, the scale
will not only kill the cycad but can
be spread to other cycads."
Researchers at UF's Tropical
Research and Education Center in
Homestead have introduced two
natural enemies to help combat
this pest, but they are not com-
pletely effective. The insects were
imported from Thailand and
released in South Florida in 1997
and 1998.
The natural enemies are a
predaceous beetle and a parasitic
wasp. The adult beetle feeds pri-
marily on adult female scale. The
beetle lays her eggs among the
scale eggs underneath the scale
armor covering. After hatching, the
beetle larva feeds on all stages of
the scale. The wasp attacks and
kills female scale by laying its egg
inside the female scale where the
developing wasp larva feeds and
grows.
"Both of these natural enemies
have become established in many
areas of South Florida and con-

tribute to the control of the scale,"
said Ms. Mannion, who is based at
UF's Homestead center. "However,
because of the explosive nature of
the scale insect, neither one of
these natural enemies can provide
complete control."
Ronald Cave, an assistant pro-
fessor of entomology at UF's Indian
River Research and Education Cen-
ter in Fort Pierce, recently went to
China and Vietnam to identify para-
sitoids that could be imported and
released in Florida. Two types of
parasitic wasps were taken to quar-
antine facilities in Gainesville and
Fort Pierce, where methods are
being developed to rear the wasps
for research purposes.
Ms. Mannion is also evaluating
another potential predatory beetle
that was introduced into Hawaii
many years ago for control of other
armored-scale insects and report-
edly provides some control of the
Asian cycad scale. Small, isolated
populations have been found in
Florida, but early indications are
that it may not be contributing
much to the control of this pest, she
said.
Horticultural oils and/or insecti-
cides can be used to manage Asian
cycad scale, she said. Thorough
coverage of the plant is extremely
important when applying a spray
and repeat applications may be
necessary, Ms. Mannion said.

Some advice from a wayward sheep

By Pastor John i Hicks lay on top of one another in a white In Psalm 23, David refers to the don't listen to the voice of our shep-
First United Methodist pile. Those who jumped later were Lord as his shepherd. David was herd and try to do things on our
Church, Clewiston saved as the pile got higher, cush- well aware of the dangers in the own, pushing our way into places
uh Clean iAioning the fall. world. He knew that there were that may not be the best place for
Sheep are an interesting breed A word of dark valleys and evil, he knew that us to be at that time. We may find Community Links Individual Voices.


of animals and the shepherds that
protect them are also an interesting
breed. If I were a sheep, I probably
would not be the black sheep of
the family. I probably wouldn't just
be one of the flock either. Most
sheep are pretty tame, but there is a
wild breed of sheep that are high-
spirited, daring and self-reliant.
Know anybody like that? I see
someone like that every time I look
into the mirror.
Sometimes the high spirited
sheep can get into trouble. Some
time back, I read an article about a
sheep in Turkey that, for some rea-
son or another, jumped to its death
over a cliff. Stunned Turkish shep-
herds, who had left the herd to
graze while they had breakfast,
watched as nearly 1,500 others fol-
lowed, each leaping over the same
cliff. In the end, 450 dead animals


insight here: Be
careful about
following other
sheep - you
might end up
over a cliff.
In countries
where , shep-
herding is still John
an occupation, Hicks
I have heard
that shepherds do not call their
sheep randomly. They have a spe-
cial call or whistle that the sheep
recognize as their own shepherd's
voice. Shepherds guard their sheep
against attack from wild animals.
Shepherds take the chance of los-
ing their own life to protect their
sheep.
Another word of insight: Trust
the shepherd; he has your best
interest at heart.


he had enemies. As a young shep-
herd, he knew that there were
wolves, robbers, and thieves. David
knew that without the guidance of
the shepherd, the chance that the
sheep would be slaughtered or
scattered was high. That is why the
shepherd was there, to watch over
the sheep even with the chance of
losing his own life.
In today's world, we walk
through dark valleys. Pain, loss,
anguish, fear, evil, death; they are
all a part of our lives. We even have
enemies or perceived enemies and
those people that we don't always
agree with. We also experience
wolves, those who pull us away
from what we know is right and
lead us to places that we never
would have gone without their
influence.
As wild sheep, we sometimes


ourselves at the edge of a cliff and
wonder how we are going to get
back to the flock, to the security of
our home and family, to the securi-
ty of our shepherd.
David proclaims, "The Lord is
my shepherd. He walks through
the dark valleys with me. God com-
forts me and keeps me on track
with the staff and the rod. The staff
guides me and the rod keeps me
from doing harm to myself. It disci-
plines me."
The Lord is also our shepherd.
Listen to His voice. Next time you
find yourself looking over that cliff,
just remember that the Good Shep-
herd is looking over the flock, lying
in green pastures, and/or beside
still waters, restoring souls, setting
us on right paths all with the prom-
ise that we shall all dwell in the
house of the Lord forever.


Ascension; growing up, not a three-story universe


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
May 17 is celebrated as Ascen-
sion Day this year. It is a com-
memoration of the Lord ascend-
ing into
Heaven (Acts
1:9) at the
completion of _
His earthly r,-' ' -X'V
appearances
after His resur- , .
reaction. It was . .
the end of His
time for being
a visible, earth- Samuel S.
ly witness to
those who saw Thomas
Him, that "the Lord is risen, He is
risen indeed (from Luke 24:34)."
Now all would have to go it on
their own
"Have you believed because
you have seen me? Blessed are
those who have not seen and yet
believe (John 20:29)," He tells
Thomas at one of His last appear-
ances.
It is always easier when the
proof is in front of us; when we
see for ourselves. Sadly, that is
not always the case. That's when


we are called upon to make an
"ascension."
Someone who was seeking
help for children told me of the
other parent who does not help
with support. "Why not?" I
asked. The answer was that it
just doesn't happen. I explained
in turn that I was being asked to
support someone else's irre-
sponsible, immature behavior
and didn't think that was entirely
fair. One party in the relationship
has not, "ascended" to a level of
maturity, acceptance of respon-
sibility for children brought into
the world and for whom they are
responsible. Someone has
refused to grow up, to "ascend"
to adulthood and leaves the
other partner with a double bur-
den of being two parents as well
as seeking support that is hard to
get.
There are others who are not
yet grown up and who go
through life concerned about not
being caught instead of what is
right or wrong.
Such people have not
"ascended" to their rightful place
in the world, justifying to them-
selves acts of immaturity or irre-
sponsibility and refusing to


answer honestly for them. We no
longer believe in a three-story
universe with hell-down-there-
heaven-up-there-and-earth-in-
the-middle.
In fact, the Earth is not flat;
we've known for hundreds of
years that "ascension" means
more than "going up physically."
Ascension means, rather, rising
beyond one's earthly self, sacrific-
ing, going the second mile, reach-
ing out beyond our usual limits. It
is a call to undo the "fall" of
humanity; undoing the Garden of
Eden story in a small but special
way; to be grown, mature, adult
followers of the Lord. Maybe it is
harder to believe when we don't
see; but maturity requires it.
I don't have parents standing
behind me now to see that I look
both ways before I cross the
street. I don't have others to tell
me to brush my teeth; don't have
others cover my debts; to tell me
how to be polite, pick up after
myself. These things are now
internalized "...when I was a
child...now that I have become a
man..." (1 Corinthians 13), but I
carry the calls to maturity that
others have used to point me on
the right path. They are those


who helped me grow and loved
me and are with me. I honor
them each time I do what they
wanted for me and they wanted
the best. I "ascend" as they would
have wished.
Jesus calls upon His followers
to do the harder part; to believe
and act even when not seen, but
promises that we are blessed for
it.
When we grow, when we
become mature, when we
"ascend" to what we can be -
that is when God is with us and
blesses us. It is about being
responsible to others and to our-
selves, being cheerful when it is
difficult to be cheerful, being
patient when it is difficult to be
patient, pushing on when we'd
like to stand still, being agreeable
when we'd like to be disagree-
able, or being what the saints
were, and are!
That's God's mature people;
those who accept their call and
go beyond, believing and living
on their belief; having faith and
acting on it.
It is within the reach of each
of us.

How to avoid seeing 'Salem' in your house


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Salem was not large, but it was
buzzing with conversation about
the authorities having rounded up
some of its own teen-agers the
night before as the guilty parties of
several recent burglaries. The
leader of the gang was Buster
Stewart. It took common but
respected Russ Jennings to give the
particulars of the case. He had lived
in the same block with the Stew-
arts and had been a witness to the
developments that produced
Buster Stewart. Let us listen in on
what he is saying to his friend
Henry Evans.
"I've been expecting something
like this for quite a while for the
boy's parents have had no control
of him for a good while.
When Buster was nine, they
dropped out of church - feeling
hurt over something the preacher
said, I expect now they wish they
hadn't quit."
"But even before they quit
going to church, you could see if
you lived in the community, that
there was something wrong in the
home. Periodically they had trou-
ble that all of us could hear. They
didn't make Buster mind, and he
was never punished for his disobe-


diences. They babied him and gave
him everything he wanted and he
didn't appreciate any of it. He
threw tantrums when he was little,
kicked his mother when he got
mad and has always talked back to
his dad. He probably got his atti-
tude toward his father from his
mother, for she is always running
Henry down and telling him off
about something. But there were
times when Henry deserved it, for
he was none too loving or kind to
her either. So what else can you
expect? And then when the boy got
old enough to have a car of his
own, things began to develop even
faster toward what happened."
Dear friends, do you realize
what happen in Salem is happen-
ing in many other places today?
And do you realize that the condi-
tions in the Stewart home that pro-
duced a Buster Stewart are to be
found in many other homes today?
And do you realize that it is the 21st
Century home that is producing
the 21st century problem child?
And do you realize that it is "home
delinquency" that is producing
"child delinquency?"
A half century ago a new
experimental theory was intro-
duced about child rearing. The
child was to be his own boss,


more or less. The parents would
say nothing to cross the child
unless conditions reached the
unbearable point. They would
never correct nor punish the child-
merely make suggestions. Well,
time has proven all over the coun-
try that the experiment has failed!
Our homes were a lot better off
before people adopted the untried
theory of the "experts".
Do you realize that the New Tes-
tament contains a wise and work-
able set of instructions for a happy,
successful home? To the wives it
says, "Wives, submit yourselves
unto your husbands" (Eph. 5:22).
(Husbands be wise so you will be
easy to submit to.) To the husband
it says, "Husbands, love your
wives" (Eph. 5:25). (Wives, always
be nice that you might be easy to
love.) To the children it says, "Chil-
dren, obey your parents" (Eph.
6:1). (Parents be wise and loving
that you will be easy to obey.) And
to parents it says "Fathers, provoke
not your children to wrath, but
bring them up in the nurture and
admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:4).
(Children, be happy thus to be
brought up.)
Live according to these divine
rules, and you will never see
"Salem" at your house!

LABELLE - Due to the recent
wildfires affecting the state, the
Florida Department of Health
(doh) is providing health recom-
mendations to citizens impacted by
the wildfire smoke.
Smoke is a respiratory irritant,
and can cause a scratchy throat
and/or irritated eyes and nose.
Smoke may also worsen condi-
tions such as asthma and other
chronic respiratory or lung condi-
tions.
There are many steps you can
take to protect yourself and your
family from the health effects of
smoke:
* Be your own health judge. If
you can see smoke outside or you
feel the effects of the smoke, avoid
prolonged outdoor activities. It is
especially important to limit time
spent outdoors for children and


persons with existing medical con-
ditions.
* Stay indoors whenever possi-
ble. Run your air conditioner with a
clean filter and the fresh air intake
closed, to prevent additional
smoke from entering your home. If
you don't have an air conditioner
and are a comfortable temperature
inside with the windows closed,
stay inside. If your home is too
warm, seek alternative shelter.
* Keep particle levels inside and
around your home lower by not
burning outdoor yard waste, smok-
ing tobacco, or using anything that
burns, such as wood fireplaces, gas
logs, gas stoves and candles.
* Delay vacuuming when possi-
ble, as vacuuming stirs up particles
already inside your home.
* Follow your doctor's advice
about taking your medications and


adhere to your asthma manage-
ment plan if you have asthma or
other lung disease.
* Call your doctor if your symp-
toms worsen.
* Stay alert to any news cover-
age or health warnings related to
smoke.
* Pay attention to local air quali-
ty reports. For more information on
the air quality index and recom-
mendations: please visit:

rquality.htm.
For further information, please
contact your local county health
department or visit

dadisaster.org.

National Hospital Week is in


full swing at Hendry Regional


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON - Hospitals
across the country recently cele-
brated National Hospital Week
(May 6-12), and Hendry Regional
Medical Center was among them.
The nation's most traditional
health care event unites hospitals,
health care workers and commu-
nities from coast to coast, building
enthusiasm and pride in the giving
nature of care.
The celebration of National
Hospital Week began in 1921,
when a magazine editor suggest-
ed that more information to the
public about hospitals might alle-
viate fears about hospital institu-
tions. The idea caught on, and
today National Hospital Week is
the nation's largest annual health
care event.
A full slate of activities was
planned for the employees and
medical staff at HRMC including:
Monday - Pancake Breakfast

right) Joe Denno (CFO), Lynn Chiarelli (HFCC Director) and
Sue Seeley (CNO).


served by Administration.
Tuesday-Neon Day
Wednesday - Cultural Attire
Thursday - Mother's Day Social
Friday- Foundation Barbeque
The Hospital CEO, Craig Cud-


worth, stated, "It is important
that we recognize National Hos-
pital Week and to acknowledge
our employees for their many
contributions to the hospital's
accomplishments."


Hendry Regional Foundation begins

'Commemorative Brick Program'


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON - The HRMC
Foundation is in the process of a
commemorative brick fundraiser.
Now you, a family member or a
friend can be remembered in a
lasting and tangible way for the
vital role you will play in modern,
patient-centered healthcare.
In 2008, HRMC will break
ground on a new Emergency
Room, Laboratory and Surgery


Suite, to be located south of the
existing hospital and connected by
an enclosed corridor.
Your brick memorial will play a
prominent role in the beauty and
character of the project. One day
soon, visitors will be able to see the
community's generosity and finan-
cial support of Hendry Regional
Medical Center.
Join the Foundation in "Build-
ing a Pathway to Modern Health-
care - One Brick at a Time." Your


contribution will provide a visible
and meaningful way to honor
friends and loved ones.
A 4" x 8" brick inscription is
$100 per brick (3 engraved lines).
An 8" x 8" brick inscription is
$150 per brick (6 engraved lines).
You may contact GlendaWilson
at (863) 983-2735 or visit the HRMC
Foundation (old Chamber Build-
ing) at 544 West Sugarland High-
way, Clewiston, Florida 33440 to

Livestock movement restrictions eased


Bronson makes it
easier to move animals
away from wildfires
TALLAHASSEE - Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson
has taken steps to make it easier for
horse and livestock owners to
move their animals in the event of
an evacuation due to wildfires.
Mr. Bronson has temporarily
suspended intrastate movement


requirements only for those ani-
mals being evacuated from
affected areas. He has also lifted
interstate requirements for ani-
mals being evacuated from the
fire-affected areas in Georgia and
moving into Florida. At the same
time, Alabama and Georgia offi-
cials have waived their interstate
movement requirements for
Florida livestock being evacuated
into those states.
"We need to help people get
out of harm's way as quickly as
possible because these wildfires


can spread quickly and we have
new fires breaking out in many
areas of the state each day," Mr.
Bronson said. "This temporary
suspension of these require-
ments is critical for people who
need to move out of an area
quickly and want to protect their
animals."
Anyone transporting livestock-
during this emergency situation
must continue to stop at the
Florida agricultural interdiction
stations. If the proper paper-.
work does not accompany the


shipment, the transporter will be
issued an ALE-5, Livestock Truck
Passing Report. This movement
report must accompany the live-
stock during transport within
Florida, Georgia and Alabama
until the owners return home
when it is deemed safe to do so.
For a listing of facilities accept-
ing livestock in the southeast, log

state.fl.us/ai/adc/adcemerg_mana
ginks.shtml.


Bronson reduces the threat of yard fires


TALLAHASSEE - Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced that due to the
severe wildfire threat, he has
instructed the Division of Forestry
to stop the burning of all yard waste
by homeowners. Mr. Bronson
wants to reduce the potential for
additional wildfires until weather
conditions improve.
Mr. Bronson said that he is tak-
ing the action as a result of a signifi-
cant increase in the number and
severity of wildfires. It follows a
May 3 Executive Order by Governor


Charlie Crist declaring a state of
emergency due to the ongoing
drought and danger of wildfires.
"This reduction in the burning
of yard waste should emphasize to
everyone the seriousness of the
drought conditions in our state,"
Mr. Bronson said. "Until we are
well into a regular pattern of after-
noon thundershowers, we cannot
risk allowing a small yard fire to
escape and cause a disaster."
Unless prohibited by the local
city or county, homeowners living
in single or two-family dwellings
are normally allowed to burn yard


waste (grass clippings, brush,
leaves, tree limbs, palm fronds,
etc.) on the premises in a non-com-
bustible container [or pile less than
8 feet in diameter] without any spe-
cific authorization fro m the Divi-
sion of Forestry. It is that activity that
is being temporarily halted.
"Yard waste. can be used as
mulch, left for curb-side pick-up if
that is available or simply piled for
burning when weather conditions
improve," Bronson said.
In Florida, the Division of
Forestry regulates all outdoor burn-
ing, including burning of agricul-


ture crop residue, siMviculture burn-
ing and pile burning. Authoriza-
tions for those activities already
have been drastically curtailed due
to the dry conditions.
In a typical year, Florida has
about 5,000 wildfires that burn
approximately 200,000 acres. Since
January 1 of this year, 1,875 wild-
fires have burned 166,247 acres.
For more information on Flori-
da's outdoor burning laws, home-
owners should contact the local
office of the Division of Forestry or
the local fire department.


Farm-friendly bills

passed by legislature


TALLAHASSEE - The 2007
session of the Florida Legisla-
ture resulted in passage of
much-needed legislation that
will help the state's farmers
and ranchers continue to oper-
ate, according to Florida Farm
Bureau, the state's largest gen-
eral interest agricultural organi-
zation. ,
"We appreciate the support
agriculture received from our
legislators," said FFBF Presi-
dent John Hoblick. "I also
appreciate the support we
received from hundreds of
Farm Bureau members who
kept in touch with their sena-
tors and representatives
throughout the session."
Bills sent to the governor's
desk will lower sales taxes for
agricultural producers, protect
rural landowners from trespass
liability and destruction of
fences, support development
of agri-tourism and fund
research into alternative energy
sources.
Lawmakers broadened the
sales tax exemption for elec-
tricity used on farms to encom-
passall aspects, direct and indi-
rect, of production and
processing of agricultural prod-
ucts on farms. The exemption
now also applies to other agri-
culture-related activities per-
formed on farm, including in
offices and barns. Primary
sponsors of the legislation
were Rep. Bryan Nelson, R-
Apopka and Sen. Jeff Atwater,
R-North Palm Beach.
Agri-tourism stands to get a
boost from a measure that per-
mits the Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services to
provide marketing advice,
expertise, support and product


development. Under that
measure the department
would also assist local govern-
ments, economic development
organizations, the Florida Com-
mission on Tourism and like
organizations with promoting
agri-tourism. It also directs
local governments and agricul-
tural representatives to meet
regarding regulatory streamlin-
ing, incentives and the benefits
of agri-tourism to local
economies.
Trespassing, a perennial
thorn in the side for rural
landowners, was also
addressed in the agri-tourism
bill. Under the measure sent to
the governor, a trespasser can-
not sue an. agricultural
landowner for damages related
to the trespasser's unlawful
conduct. Landowners can now
post property by painting "No
Trespassing" in letters two
inches high and one inch wide
in an international orange color
on posts or trees no more than
500 feet apart. (Entrances and
exits must still be marked with
conventional signs.) The crimi-
nal penalty for intentionally
damaging or removing "no
trespassing" signs is increased
to a. first degree misdemeanor
and the penalty for second or
subsequent occurrences of
breaking or injuring fences is
boosted to a third degree
felony.
The University of
Florida/IFAS will receive $20
million for an alternative ener-
gy research facility and the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture was budgeted $26 million
for Farm to Fuel grants pro-
gram.

Serving the cornmunities south of Lake Okeechobee










Bowden: Henry Ford gave us advice ne

By Beryl Bowden and MI
edited by MaryAnn Morris


Thanks to the generosity of
the Clewiston Museum, we have
copies of the wonderful history
articles Ms. Beryl Bowden wrote
while she was employed by the
Clewiston News. She, like Twila
Valentine of Okeechobee, is.an
inspiration and we are grateful
to be able to re-run her writings.
"It was November 1931, the
nation was still struggling to rise
out of the great depression
when Henry Ford was inter-
viewed by the Clewiston News
while on a visit here to see the
sugar mill in operation. Among
other things, Mr. Ford said, "I
would not insure unemploy-
ment; to me that looks like the
surest way of establishing unem-
ployment as a permanent evil.
What we should do is abolish it
and that can be done. The world
is full of work that ought to be
done. But very little effort is
being made toward it. All the
effort has gone toward 'insuring
unemployment' - I am afraid of
any kind of artificial interference
with natural production." He
was referring, I believe to Feder-
al Unemployment Insurance,
which would have been an issue
two years after the Stock Market
crash in 1929, which lead to the
depression.
"Henry Ford and Thomas A.
Edison, both of whom had win-
ter homes in Fort Myers, were
among the nationally known vis-
itors to the Glades area in the
1920s and 30s. Mr. Ford became
a frequent visitor after he
acquired, in 1924, a large
acreage at Fort Thompson, the
present site of Port LaBelle. "E.E.
Goodno had mortgaged the
property to Mr. Ford for
$178,000; when he was unable
to pay off the mortgage, he sold
to Ford, who paid him an addi-
tional $172,000 for his remaining
interest. Mr.; Goodno remained
as manager there for several
years, but Mr. Ford took a keen
interest and became a figure to
local residents and especially to
the late E. Cornett of Clewiston
who with Blitz Wegan at that
time was in the Ford dealership
at LaBelle. He recalled Ford's
direct manner and called him an
"easy customer to sell." Mr. Ford
knew exactly what he wanted,
ordered it, paid cash in full for it
and never asked for a discount
or any special treatment. He was
treated exactly like any other
customer and that's the way he
wanted it.
"Mr. Ford was a friendly, casu-
al person and strangers respond-
ed quickly to his easy approach.
Elizabeth Bailey, daughter of the
minister of Community Church,
recalled her first meeting with
Mr. Ford. She was seated in the
back yard of the manse with her
hair, still wet from a shampoo,
streaming over she shoulders to
dry, when a stranger wandered
into the yard, inspecting shrubs
and grasses. They had a pleasant
conversation but neither volun-
teered their identity. Later that
evening, she accompanied her
parents to the Fred Williamson
home where they were invited
for dinner and learned that she
had already met Henry Ford,
another guest.
"Mr. Ford made friends easily
and seemed to have a special
rapport with children, who
responded immediately to his
appearance at their games or
small gatherings along the
streets or vacant lots in LaBelle.
Early residents recall many

In 1929, President Herbert Hoover came to South Florida and paid a visit to Thomas Edison
at his home in Fort Myers on the Caloosahatchee River. Edison's next door neighbor was
none other than Henry Ford. (Left to right) President Herbert Hoover, Henry Ford, Thomas
Edison and Harvey Firestone.

instances of Ford's concern for
children and his enjoyment of
them.
"Don Bush remembers when
a group of boys were roller skat-
ing on a newly paved sidewalk,
all too uncommon in LaBelle at
that time. Mr. Ford came along
and watched the sport and
began a conversation. He
admired the boys' skating skills,
said he had skated as a young-
ster and wished he could skate
again. One lad promptly
removed his own skates and
offered them to Mr. Ford. With a
little adjustment, they were fitted
onto his shoes and Ford took the
hand of the nearest boy - Bush
himself - and with him, skated
the full length of the sidewalk
and back.
"Another resident recalls Mr.
Ford watching a group of girls at
play and noting that one girl
took no active part. When he
made inquiries, he learned the
child was born with badly
clubbed feet and could not walk
normally was ". With the con-
sent of her parents, Mr. Ford sent
Gladys Smith to a Dearborn hos-
pital where a series of surgeries
over several months corrected
her deformity. Upon her return,
he told the parents never to buy
ordinary shoes for her, but to
continue the special shoes and
send all the bills to him.
"Clyde Underhill, a LaBelle
orphan reared by relatives, was,
at 18 a messenger boy in Fort
Myers, who delivered telegrams
to the Ford residence. Mr. Ford
learned his history and arranged
for him to attend a five-year
course in the Ford Industries
Trade School, learning mechani-
cal skills in a work-and-study
program.


It was typical of Henry Ford
that, with new designs and
improvements and the develop-
ment of Lincolns and other cars,
the Model T remained his proud-
est accomplishment. When
someone admired one of the
new model Ford sedans,, Mr.
Ford replied, "yes, it's better
than the Lincoln now."
"The Model T was "The car
that will take you there and bring
you back," and Ford never forgot
it.
"Mr. Ford planted his large
acreage of citrus at his Fort
Thompson property, but he
seemed to give most of his atten-
tion to the small (about one
acre), experimental nursery in
which he, Harvey Firestone and
Thomas Edison were attempting
to find a new U.S. source of rub-
ber. This was just part of a wide
ranging project; there were
plantings a Chapman Field,
Miami, at a site near Ocala and
in other localities and other
states. Some of the deeds and
plants even came to Clewiston
where George Watkins, the land-
scape gardener had a small
nursery to grow shrubs and
other plants to beautify Clewis-
ton streets and park areas.
"Harvey Firestone was an
important part of this search for
rubber sources. He, Edison and
Ford began their joint search in
1920. Firestone's aim was to
produce a new source of rubber
to avoid the high cost of import-
ed rubber, which had almost
doubled. His goal was to pro-
duce a pneumatic tire which
could be used on all farm
machinery. Some of his tires
were tested on farms in the
Clewiston area and he brought
men from his research team
here to evaluate the experiment
in 1936. Firestone was said to be
pleased with the showing made.
In the search for a new
source of rubber, Edison, the sci-
entist, conducted the experi-
ments, tests is his laboratories;
Ford provided the financing;
Firestone directed the manufac-
turing into tires. There was a
world-wide search for plants
adaptable to U.S. growing con-
ditions.

"One day, Thomas Edison
was strolling through the
grounds of his Ft. Myers home
which was planted with many
unusual shrubs and trees. Peo-
ple often walked through it also.
"A man asked Edison, is there
any chance of my seeing Mr. Edi-
son?"
"Edison replied, "He some-
times walks around the yard
here. If you keep watching you
may see him."
Ms. Bowden notes here: "I
believe the above is from a circa
'25 GCD (Glades County Democ-
rat)
"Edison deplored the loss of
Florida's native forests which
were denuded fir timber and lost
also to woods fires.
"When the trees go, the birds
will follow suit - they may also
be gone," he said.
"In March of '28, Ford recov-
ered portions of (the steamboat)
Suwannee in Moore Haven
Canal. Captain Fred Menge
(Refer to the "Recollections"
articles published the past three
weeks for information about
Fred Menge and his brothers
who worked for Hamilton Dis-
ston on the original drainage of
the Lake Okeechobee area*.)
"The remains of the Suwan-
nee were transported to Dear-
born, Michigan where Fred's
youngest brother, Conrad
worked to build a replica of the
Suwannee in the Henry Ford
Museum."

mation set forth below and must be filed (received by the clerk) in the Office of Gen-

tion to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set
