Free feline spay
clinic offered
Ok, now that I have your
attention - On Friday June 8, the
Caloosa Humane Society will
spay 20 female cats for free on
one condition.....you give
them your kittens! Instead of
charging the usual $40 surgical
fee for your cat to be spayed,
they will wave the surgical fee
for 20 female cats, if you release
your kittens to them to be
placed for adoption.
The kittens will be featured
on the shelter's website for
adoption as being super-hero
kitties! Just by being released to
the shelter for adoption and
being altered, they will be reduc-
ing the astronomical number of
felines euthanized each year in
shelters simply because there
are too many of them! All of the
kittens will be tested for Feline
Leukemia and FIV, vaccinated,
wormed, given a flea treatment
and spayed or neutered.
So remember, if you have a
litter of kittens, don't give them
away! Bring them to the shelter
and redeem them for a free
female cat spay today! 863-675-
0997 call Tuesday thru Satur-

City elections to be changed


2007 election to
coincide with Nov.
general election

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Citing the
fact that elections seem to grow
more and more complicated
and costly, with each time,
Clewiston city officials voted to
change election dates to coin-


cide with general elections.
Iva Pittman, the city
clerk/assistant city manager,
has been largely responsible for
carrying out local elections, her
staff tasked with the complex
but essential part of the city's
operation.
According to her, recent
changes in the way elections
are carried out, including closer
and closer scrutiny from law-
makers at the state level and
nationally, have made elections


a more complicated matter.
"Every year the voting
process gets more and more
complicated," said Ms. Pittman.
"The process has more restric-
tions and more calibrated."
On Monday, during their reg-
ular city meeting, the city coun-
cil voted to switch the dates of
this year's election to the
upcoming November general
election. The vote will also
affect all future election dates.
This year, the city would

The Clewiston High School Class of 2007 tossed their hats in the air after being intro-
duced to the crowd as graduates during commencement held May 18, at Cane Field in
Clewiston.

CHS graduation day is finally here


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Once again
the school year is over and stu-
dents anxiously look forward to
their summer vacations.
On the other hand, seniors
are marking that critical step
into adulthood as they graduate
from school after 12 long years.
Some of the students will
begin their new lives as mem-
bers of the workforce, while
others will enroll in college
and leave Clewiston in search
of their dreams.
On Friday, May 18, close to
200 Clewiston High students -
192 to be exact - took center
stage at Cane Field and each
filed up the platform to receive
their diplomas from Dr. Robert
Egley, principal of the school.
Parents sat with their chests
held high in the nearby stands,
smiling widely while their chil-
dren got up to accept their
diplomas.
The 2007 salutatorian was
Diana Jade Weiss, who greet-
ed her peers and family mem-
bers with a few wise words - a
touch of sadness to them.

have held its elections in Sep-
tember. The cost of doing so is
shouldered by the city, rather
than by a supervisory agency
specializing strictly on elec-
tions. The Hendry County
Supervisor of Elections will be
responsible for ensuring that
the election is carried out suffi-
ciently.
The election this year will
now be held in November, and
comes with a nice savings to the
city. According to Ms. Pittman,


moving the election date over
by two months will save the city
more than $5,000 in expenses
associated with having elec-
tions processed by city hall.
Many cities in the area,
including the cities of Belle
Glade and Pahokee in Palm
Beach County, have opted to go
a similar route after realizing
how much money is spent on
local elections by municipali-

Man is freed



after 3 years



in a prison


Man said he was
wrongfully accused

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - After serv-
ing almost three years behind
bars for a crime the courts ulti-
mately determined he did not
commit, Donald Ray Wagner
has finally found "justice."
Mr: Wagner, who ' was
arrested in 2002 on charges of
possession of cocaine with
intent to sell and possession of
drug paraphernalia was found
guilty of the crime in 2004 by a


jury.
Believing in his innocence,
Mr. Wagner appealed the
jury's decision in the hopes
that the court of appeals
would find him innocent.
He appealed the case in
April 15, 2005.
"The process was very
lengthy," Mr. Wagner said,
"But it was all worthwhile."
During his appeal, Mr. Wag-
ner argued that the state failed
to'prve- in court that he was
indeed in. possession of the
cocaine at the time of his
arrest.

CLEWISTON - The some-
times seen but largely silent
community in Clewiston has
another outlet for help.
Recently, 55 Hispanics
attended a meeting about the
issues facing them - mainly
the immigration issues that
continue being a hot topic
among the country's lawmak-
ers.
Immigration laws have
many immigrants living in the
country illegally worrying
about their family's future.
With the city of Clewiston
steeped in a rich history of agri-
culture, the number of illegal
immigrants living in the area
continues to grow as families
search for jobs in the area.
Noting the need to inform
families about what is avail-


able to them, the Hispanic Out-
reach Program, through the
Hendry-Glades Mental Health
Clinic, is reaching out to the
community.
The group organized the
meeting at St. Margaret's
Church in Clewiston held May
15.
Laura Gutierrez, immigra-
tion case worker with Catholic
Charities Diocese of Venice
Inc., out of Immokalee, was
the featured speaker at the
event.
Ms. Gutierrez made a pres-
entation showing the families
what the country's immigra-
tion procedures are, as well as
informing them of the require-
ments of the law for families
who are interested in becom-
ing citizens.

Arrest made after
routine traffic stop

PIONEER - During what
should have been a routine
traffic stop involving a man
riding his ATV illegally on pub-
lic roads, eagle-eyed officers
were able to recover tens of
thousands of dollars in coun-
terfeit money and a full coun-


terfeit operation.
The man, who may have
walked away with a minor
infraction, was taken to jail to
face numerous felony
charges.
According to information
provided by the Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriff's Office, deputies
working alongside the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Commission
stopped the man while he was

Hurricane season quickly approaching Crime Stoppers


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Independent Newspapers
With the 2007 hurricane sea-
son just around the corner, emer-
gency management officials are
urging all residents - especially
those living near the Lake Okee-
chobee area - to be prepared for
anything.
Hurricane season begins June
1.
Many hurricane experts,
including the National Hurricane
Center, are predicting a busier-
than-usual hurricane season this
year, reason enough for citizens
to be prepared if a large storm
threatens to hit the general area.
The ghosts of Hurricane
Wilma and the hurricanes before
it can still be seen from Glades
County to the westernmost por-
tion of Palm Beach County, and
recovery efforts, rebuilding and
the like, are continuous projects
that still have not been entirely
completed in some areas.
Despite this, there is very little


that can be done to prevent
another devastating result of a
future hurricane, but emergency
managers say plenty can be done
to protect the family during such
an event.
Debbie McDuffie, the branch
manager for the Glades Area
American Red Cross in South Bay,
has experienced natural disasters
before. Ms. McDuffie has man-
aged shelters in the Glades follow-
ing major hurricanes and now
heads up the department - which
has jurisdiction over the areas of
western Palm Beach County,
Hendry and Glades counties.
After Hurricane Wilma, Ms.
McDuffie noticed how few fami-
lies were prepared to deal with a
hurricane.
Some become complacent
when forecasted storms have not
turned out, and stop preparing
altogether. Last year, experts pre-
dicted a busy season, but only
one storm, which never grew to
become a hurricane, threatened
to hit.


"Sending out the message of
how important it is to have a fami-
ly emergency preparedness kit is
one of our top priorities," said
Mrs. McDuffie.
According to the American
Red Cross, essential items to
stock up on before a hurricane
include:
* First aid kit and important
medications
* Canned food to for at least 3-
4 days and can opener
e At least three gallons of
water per person
e Protective clothing, rain-
wear, and bedding or sleeping
bags
* Battery-powered radio,
flashlight, and extra batteries
* Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members
As a reminder, many of the
items included in the list can be
purchased during the tax-free
week of June 1 to June 12.
The nature of hurricanes and
the advancements made in track-
ing them, give the unique chance,


at least in the natural world, to
prepare for the impending
onslaught. Unlike tornados, vol-
cano eruptions and earthquakes,
hurricanes are often spotted a few
days to as much as a week before
they make landfall.
With the number of mobile
homes throughout the Glades,
officials tend to identify home-
owners in those area as being
most susceptible to harm during
a hurricane. The rocking winds
sometimes tear homes from their
foundations.
Mobile home owners are
encouraged to have an updated
evacuation plan and emergency
kit on hand and ready before a
storm. If an especially powerful
storm is expected, law enforce-
ment officials encourage mobile
home owners to evacuate to a
safer location, including shelters
set up at each city.

As the weather heats up and
Florida boaters get ready to hit
the water, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) has a few tips to
help them stay safe on the water.
"There are two things every
boater can do to keep a fun day
from turning deadly - stay alert
and always wear a life jacket,"
FWC Major Brett Norton said.
"We've already had 32 boating
fatalities this year, and three
boaters are missing. Those trag-
ic statistics are worse than at this


demonstration of how effective
the new type of automatically or
manually inflatable life jackets
can be when a boater goes over-
board.
"Most crashes happen
because of operator inattentive-
ness, and most accident victims
who die drown because they
aren't wearing life jackets. It's
that simple," Major Norton said.
New, easy-to-wear life jackets
could help prevent boating
deaths. They are lightweight and
unobtrusive until they touch

Belle Glade Fire-Rescue makes an unusual operation


By Lt. Mark V. Carr
PAHOKEE - Palm Beach
County Fire-Rescue firefighters in
the small rural Florida cities of
Pahokee and Belle Glade handled
an unusual rescue on May 21. The
call came in for Engine 72-Bravo
in Pahokee to respond to a dog
stuck in a canal in the 900 block of
McClure Road. Engine 72-Bravo


arrived and found the dog, indeed
trapped, in a weed-infested canal
about 100 feet wide. He was half
way between sides and mangled
in weeds, unable to swim to either
side and struggling to stay afloat.
Pahokee city workers and
Sheriff's deputies were trying
unsuccessfully to rescue the dog
with ropes. Engine 72-Bravo's Lt.


Mark Carr requested the assis-
tance of Fire-Rescue's new 2006
GTO 16' rescue airboat from Sta-
tion 73 in Belle Glade, a short dis-
tance away. Engine 73, under the
command of Lt. Frank Cote, and
Operations 7 responded with the
airboat and launched it in the
canal nearby.
Palm Beach County Animal


Control was on scene and went

SOUTH BAY - Officials of the
City of South Bay urge all cus-
tomers in its water and waste-
water service area to dramatical-
ly reduce water consumption,
especially for outdoor irrigation.
Customers will soon receive a
letter outlining the restrictions
with their water utility bills.
This directive was prompted
by recent announcements by the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) regard-
ing record-level drought condi-
tions in most portions of the
state plus major wildfire activi-
ties statewide. Joining with
SFWMD, South Bay allows out-
door irrigation with reclaimed
(non-potable) and potable water
according to SFWMD guidelines.
The customer letter states:
* All South Bay water utility
customers should water no
more than two (2) days per
week, according to the SFWMD
designation based on customer
address.
* Residents with odd-num-
bered home addresses will be
allowed to water between the
hours of 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Wednesday and Saturdays.


* Residents with even-num-
bered home addresses will be
allowed to water between the
hours of 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Thursday and Sundays.
* No domestic water use for
outdoor irrigation will be
allowed on Mondays, Tuesdays
and Fridays.
* Irrigation systems should
be used only in the early morn-
ing hours between 4 a.m. and 8
a.m. and for no more than thirty
minutes per zone. Hand-set
sprinklers should be used only
on designated days between 5
p.m. - 7 p.m. and for no more
than 30 minutes per zone. Cus-
tomers with irrigation systems
should NOT use potable (drink-
ing water) for supplemental
watering.
The City of South Bay strongly
urges all customers to follow
these guidelines in order to pro-
tect their water supply. Cus-
tomers should also check with
local authorities to see if stricter
local guidelines are in place. For
more information, customers
can log on to the SFWMD web
site at www.sfwmd.gov.

Garbage and trash
removal a concern,

By Nena Bolan
Independent Newspapers
MOORE HAVEN - The
Moore Haven City Council met
May 15 and appointed council
member Mike Brantley as a rep-
resentative to the Southwest
Florida Regional Planning Coun-
cil.
The council is a six-county
panel that has committees for
restoring the Caloosahatchee
River, local emergency planning
and community housing.
Chief Deputy Robert DeMann


directs the new corrections facil-
ity. He was present to tell the
council that the facility will be up
and running July 1. A grand
opening is planned for June 22.
He will return to the June 5 city
council meeting to receive final
information from the city attor-
ney, Steve Ramunni.
Mike Brantley requested that
the council meet soon to discuss
the possibility of annexing prop-
erty to the city of Moore Haven. A
workshop for council members
was set for June 12.
Council member John Ahern
announced he would attend a
Bonita Springs City Council meet-
ing May 16. The city of Bonita
Springs wants more information


from Florida Power and Light
concerning the Glades Power
Park. Mr. Ahern will be available
for input at the meeting.
Claudia McPherson, a Wash-
ington Park resident, asked
about garbage and trash service.
Washington Park is a county
community adjacent to the city
limits of Moore Haven.
Recently, Waste Management
and Glades County did not
renew their solid waste removal
contract. The City of Moore
Haven was prepared to add
Washington Park to its garbage
service. The county and city
agreed that Moore Haven would
provide garbage service.


Since Washington Park is not
within city limits, and it will not
be scheduled for trash pick up
amnesty on June 11. Ms.
McPherson was concerned that
trash amnesty is not offered to
her community even though
they pay for garbage service.
Pick up for trash like wood,
metal, appliances and vegeta-
tion is a separate service from
garbage removal. The City of
Moore Haven has no agreement
with the county for trash pick up
service in Washington Park.
Council members advised Clau-
dia McPherson to seek more
information through the county.

Corps of Engineers battles drought along with the state


CLEWISTON, Fla. - In
response to current drought con-
ditions, the U.S. Army COE of
Engineers, Jacksonville District
(COE) is expediting evaluation
of a request from the South Flori-
da Water Management District
(SFWMD) to change the COE's
regulation rules for Lake Istok-
poga and Water Conservation
Areas 1, 2A and 3A.
The COE is working with the
SFWMD, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and the Florida
Departments of Environmental


Protection and Agriculture to
identify the extent of any poten-
tial environmental concerns and
other issues, and to streamline
processes to address them.
The SFWMD has determined
that the 2007 drought requires
management actions that are dif-
ferent than those used in 2001
and is adapting their request to
the COE as the drought persists.
To conserve water, the COE is
currently limiting the use of the
locks on the Okeechobee Water-
way. Use of the locks may be fur-


their limited as conditions contin-
ue to change.
Representatives of the COE'
South Florida Operations Office
report that the lower lake level
has allowed controlled burning
activity on portions of the
exposed lakebed, disposing of
debris and oxygenating the soil.
Also, because of the drought,
under current conditions, aquat-
ic plant spraying has all but been
suspended, as the lack of water
has drastically reduced the
growth rates of invasive plants.

tact the Jacksonville District Cor-
porate Communication Office by
Phone: 904-232-2236 or 1-800-
291-9405, or by e-mail, or visit

and having a narrated historical
tour of the city.
Thank you to Mrs. Gary for her
hard work and dedication in coor-
dinating this field trip. Thank you
to Mr. Colon and Ms. Delese for
their help. Also, thank you to the
volunteers, family members, and
parent chaperones who helped
make this trip a great success. The
students and the group had a
wonderful time and gained valu-
able knowledge about Florida his-
tory and our country.
Our school is a wonderful place
to learn, make lasting friendships

Westside Field Day events


leave principal soaked

By Lindsey Tippett .* -^I . *.


CLEWISTON - As they sat in
their chairs like "sitting ducks"
against the red brick wall of the
cafeteria, principals prepared for
what was to come. Students
lined up ready to take their best
shot.
It was a perfect day - hot,
clear and sunny. As each child
paid a quarter and grabbed a
soaking sponge-like ball, West-
side Principals Shearer and
Assistant Principal Duckstein
cringed with every explosion of
water as it hit them - already
drenched at the "Soak Your Prin-
cipal" station. This portion of the
Field Day consisted of a water-
slide, bounce house, obstacle
course, relay race and snow
cones all co-sponsored by PTO,
the Parent Involvement Commit-
tee, and Westside.
In addition, Mr. Jerry Jones
donated 43 beautiful and juicy
watermelons that just 'totally
completed the day.
"The parents who helped
made it all possible," said Mr.
Shearer as the water glistened in
the sunlight off his face.
An extremely excited second
grade student, Anthony
Calderon, summed it all up by
saying "I've been dreaming
about this day!"

head first down the waterslide
during field day events held at
Westside Elementary during
students last week of school.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers or
corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.

Saturday, May 11.
The man, Loris Caralleyra-
Suarez, was reportedly riding his
red ATV through Hendry Isles
Boulevard illegally when the offi-
cers ordered him to pull over.
The ATV's vehicle identifica-
tion number (VIN) number was
traced as belonging to a female
in Tampa: When deputies asked
the suspect to produce docu-
mentation to prove his claim,
the suspect gave varying stories
and told officers he had the
paperwork at his home.
Mr. Caralleyra-Suarez took
deputies back to his home on
Hendry Isles Boulevard, accord-
ing to deputies. He signed a con-
sent form giving deputies the
authority to search his home.
Deputies found a Bobcat
Trailer in the backyard of the


The group was happy with
the results.
"So many people came and
were able to get the important
information they need to ensure
that the correct procedures for
their immigration documents
were being processed correctly,"

panich Outreach Program.
The community played a vital
role in making the event possi-

necting Mr. Wagner to the con-
traband," the judge said earlier
this year. "The state failed to
offer rebutting Mr. Wagner's rea-
sonable hypothesis of inno-
cence."
Although the news should
have been a positive end to a
dark affair, Mr. Wagner said the
experience will stay with him.
"I felt very bitter inside," said
Mr. Wagner. "Having to serve 32

VIN number. The search
revealed that the vehicle was
reported stolen out of Miami.
Again, the suspect claimed he
had paperwork to prove that he
had been renting the trailer for a
year but was unable to locate
them when deputies pressed
him to come up with the proof.
Growing more suspicious,
officers thought they would
check the VIN number of a Ford
Econoline Van that was parked
on the property. When they
approached the van to find the
numbers, they noticed that the
VIN number had been scratched
to the point that it was not read-
able.
According to deputies, the
man said the van belonged to a
friend of his, but couldn't
remember his friend's name.
When they searched inside
the home, deputies found a file
cabinet that contained numer-
ous copies of U.S. currency in


According to her, the May 15
meeting is just the beginning.
The Hispanic Outreach Pro-
gram is preparing to organize a

know - and they knew - I didn't
do, it is truly a prejudiced action
toward me."
Almost immediately after the
judge ruled in his favor, Mr. Wag-
ner was released from the Moore
Haven Correctional Facility in
Glades County, where he had
spent two-and-a-half years
behind bars.

different amounts - from a $1
bill to a $100 bill.
The money, in different sizes
and colors, appeared to be
counterfeit money. Deputies
found a laser printer that may
have been used to print the fake
money.
Investigators placed Mr. Car-
alleyra-Suarez under arrest and
charged him one count of felony
possession of a vehicle with
altered numbers, one count
felony larceny over $20,000 less
than $100,000, and one count
felony possession of tools for
making forgery counterfeiting
bills.
Mr. Caralleyra-Suarez was
transported to Hendry County
Jail. The van, ATV, and Bobcat
were confiscated.
The suspect was released on
bond.

PAL youth programs to begin in June


Soccer and dance
programs to be
offered free of charge

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE - The Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office Police Ath-
letic League (PAL) is putting togeth-
er two sports programs for Paho-
kee's young children, starting next
month. Currently, there are no PAL
youth programs in Pahokee.
According to Tammy Bunting,
one of the organizers of the soccer
league, the first of the programs is
the PAL Youth Soccer League. With
the number of Hispanics in the area
growing, having a sport other than
football in the city should draw
plenty of participants, organizers
hope.
The soccer program is aimed at
engaging boys and girls, ranging
from the ages of eight to 16 years
old, Ms. Bunting said. The program
will begin in June.
Registration and participation
for the program is free and organiz-
ers encourage all those interested
to participate. Also, all soccer


equipment will be supplied to the
participants free of charge, accord-
ing to Ms. Bunting.
In the meantime, the program is
looking for coaches and volunteers
to help the program to a good start.
All volunteers must first pass a
background check.
Ms. Bunting said applications
will be accepted for prospective
players and coaches until May 30.
She is shooting to have at least two
teams in Pahokee so a league can
be formed by the time the registra-
tion deadline has passed.
"We're hoping to get enough
teams so we could have an inter-
city competition," said Ms.
Bunting. "Hopefully down the
stretch, we could expand to com-
pete against other soccer teams
throughout Palm Beach County."
Ms. Bunting said that the PAL
program is sponsoring the sport
primarily because it would serve as
a positive, supervised outlet for the
youth to exert their energy.
"Appropriate sportsmanship,
social skills, teamwork, discipline
and a good physical exercise will
be of great benefit to the children
who participate in the PAL soccer
program," said Ms. Bunting.
Ms. Bunting said she hopes the


PAL program will extend to the
2007-2008 school year and
beyond, with other sports such as
boxing, wrestling, flag football, tee-
ball, softball, baseball and volley-
ball to be available in the future.
The second program is a dance
program which will be headed by
Deputy Duplantis.
According to Deputy Duplantis,
the dance program will be offered
to girls age six through 16. She said
the program will teach the girls eti-
quette, interview skills, dealing
with goals and objectives in life and
much more.
Deputy Duplantis said profes-
sional dancers will be coming to
the Pahokee Recreational Center
gymnasium to teach the girls
dances, featuring a combination of
jazz, hip-hop and stepping.
"I want the kids to know that
this will be a fun and rewarding
experience," said Deputy Duplan-
tis.
With practices to begin June 6,
Deputy Duplantis said she hopes
that the dance team will be ready
to perform in various venues
throughout the summer.
"I would love to have the girls
perform for the citizens of the area
to give them a sense of pride and


belonging," said Deputy Duplantis.
She said she would like to have
volunteers to help with the upcom-
ing dance program. She added that
if the program is successful, it
would extend through the 2007-
2008 school year.
Deputy Sheriff Johnny Jackson,
the Glades area coordinator of the
PAL, said that the purpose of the
program is to get the youth off the
streets and to encourage them to
participate in positive activities in a
supervised setting.
Deputy Jackson hopes boxing
and wrestling will come to the area
during the summer, with the target
group being boys from seven to 12
years old. The dates are yet to be
determined.
"The sports programs give the
children something to do that they
like constructively in a positive set-
ting," said Deputy Jackson. "They
should be able to have fun with the
activities we provide them with."
For more information, please
call Tammy Bunting at 924-3565 or
Deputy Sheriff Johnny Jackson at-
329-8280.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee








Thursday, May 24, 2007 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


'Doe' and Carol Glassburn still going strong


"Doc" and Carol Glassburn
came to Okeechobee in 1952. On
April 23 of this year they celebrated
75 years of marriage. Three-quar-
ters of a century is quite remark-
able.
"I remember everything about
that day - walking to the court-
house, up along the side of the
building to buy the license," smiled
Doc. "When we came out with the
license in my hand, there was a
man standing there who said, 'I
can do that for you, come on.'
"We followed him across the
street and up stairs in the building
there to his office and he married
us.
"Back then in Indiana, after you
got married, people would say they
were coming to "bell" you. That
meant the people, would come
and you would go to the store and
buy treats to serve them. Well, I
went to Rolly Ricker's store and
told him I had just got married and
I only had 50 cents left in my pock-
et but he said, 'I'll take care of it;
you pay me back when you can.'
Can you believe someone trusting
you like that today?" asked Doc.
Doc's Auto has been a fixture in
Okeechobee since it was opened
by Doc Glassburn and his wife
Carol in 1962. Now their son Kim
runs the business, but Doc and
Carol are still going strong in Okee-
chobee.
"We came to Florida in 1946
from Kokomo, Indiana," said Doc.
"That year we stayed at Pioneer
Park in Fort Pierce. I worked for the
Oldsmobile dealer there. I was
their service manager and R.J.
Cathcart was my boss
"But we got homesick and
went back a year later," chimed in
Carol.


VJ.






Submitted photo/Doc and Carol Glassburn
Doc and Carol Glassburn founded Doc's Auto Service in
1962. It is still operated by their son, Kim in the same build-
ing at N.W. Ninth Avenue and U.S. 441. This photo of the sta-
tion was taken in 1964.


But they came back the next
year and stayed for good.
"We stayed at Pitchford Auto
Camp in Jensen Beach at first,"
said Carol. "Tell how they came to
let us stay there, because they did-
n't allow children."
Glassburns have two daugh-
ters; at that time, they were 9 and
12 years old.
"It was because of Cliff Pull-
man," said Doc. "He was a friend
of ours who lived there at the
camp. He went to Pitchford and
said the girls were well-behaved.
We stayed there until we moved to
Okeechobee in 1952."
"We went to meeting in Fort
Lauderdale one time, and while I
was there, I went out onto a bal-
cony and ran into a man named
Gerald Leatherman, who was
Gilbert's right-hand man.
("Gilbert" refers to Gilbert Cul-
breth, Sr. of Okeechobee who
founded Gilbert Chevrolet in 1933

and also owned the Gilbert Theater
which used to be on Park Street
until the building was torn down in
1970.) We talked and he asked me
to come to Okeechobee and run
their service department which I
did in October of 1952."
Gilbert Chevrolet was in a red
brick building on Park Street -
where they have cars painted on
the side of the building now.
"We lived out west on Park
Street just across the old railroad

tracks, west of a two-story apart-
ment building," said Carol.
"Our son, Kim was born here,
in 1955, 17 years after his youngest
sister.
That was funny, because my
daughter was expecting at the
same time. We had our babies
together - 17 days apart," said
Carol.
"Kim was born in a hospital,
but my daughters were born at
home."
The girls were born in Indiana
in 1932 and 1938 and, as the story
went, while the doctor was at the
house, waiting for Carol to give
birth, he and Doc sat around - he
playing the banjo and Doc plying
his harmonica.
"Then we moved out to Buck-
head Ridge in 1962. At that time
there were only five houses there.
When you went down first street,
you had to turn around and go
back; there was no bridge across
the canal," Carol said.
"Originally, they had a stuffed
buck in a glass case up over the
entrance road and you'd drive
under to go in," said Doc. "It was
quite a show!" he laughed.
"When we lived in Buckhead
Ridge there was a wooden bridge
over the Kissimmee River there at
S.R.70 and it stayed until they fin-

"We opened Doc's Auto Ser-
vice in 1963, right where it is now at
Ninth Avenue and U.S. 441 and we
bought our gasoline from Ted Bass
as Price Oil Company when we
first opened up. We had it when it
was a state inspection station - I
think that was for about 17 years,"
recalled Doc.

Learning the real truth


- not being self-centered


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Listening to TV as I was get-
ting ready to come to the office, I
learned that chocolate can be
good for you. I have a vivid mem-
ory of a visit to the dentist around
age fifteen, after a hiatus of not
going for awhile.
His first words when he
looked into my mouth were
"Boy, you've been eating can-
dies." Following from the Satur-
day morning encounters we
made and the visceral memories
that still linger, I swore off of can-
dies for years. If he had said
"you've been eating sweets" I
imagine my body-mass-index
would approximate a more nor-
mal figure these days. Now I hear
that chocolate is good for you.
Not all chocolates, not those
made with palm oils, not those
made with a lot of fattening milk
substances, not the lighter
chocolates but the darker ones
not made with fatty oils.


The immutable truth of years
gone by; "chocolates are bad for
you" has been overturned. Am I
unhappy
about this
reversal? Not
at all! There '.
are still the
immutable
truths; too
much of any-
thing is not
good for you,
the newly Rev. Samuel
revealed S.Thomas
chocolate
truth has some conditions placed
on it and we cannot be indis-
criminate in this new-found
source of enjoyment. Some
kinds are certainly better than
others and you have to be aware
of the ingredients before you cat-
egorically say "It's good." I don't
expect to sit around for the great
minds of the world to decide one
day in the future that we are
wrong; chocolate is bad for us
after all.
We're moving with precision


to find a new understanding and
have opened the door to new
possibilities about an old "truth."
That door will not likely be ever
closed again. I have had some-
one insist that this is the only
planet with people on it. To me,
that simply does not follow.
Obviously, to date we have not
discovered any planets with life
like ours on them - that's the
truth. Then, the other day, there
was a discovery of a planet that
has the potential for life like ours.
Among the millions of stars out
there, there is a high likelihood
that one will be found (probably
many will be found) with life like
ours. I believe that God will care
about them too. My visitor who
felt the truth of the matter was
that this is the only place God
created or visited seems to be on
weaker ground as we discover
new "truths" that differ from old
ones. Itseems to fly in the face of
what he feels he has learned
from the Bible or in church or
about the days of creation. It is if
what he has read or heard wasn't


true, or that God changes His
mind. There is a healing of a
Canaanite daughter in Matthew
(15:21ff). Her mother asks the
Lord to heal her daughter's
"demon possession." He
reminded her that he was sent,
only, to the lost sheep of Israel
but she insists. Jesus changes His
mind!
He grants her request in spite
of her being outside of His min-
istry that day. Again, there is a
Syrophoenician woman in Mark
(7:24ff) who asks for a healing,
and Jesus changes His mind.
Jesus asks the father of a body
who is "possessed by a spirit that
has robbed him of speech (Mark
9:17ff) "How long has he been
like this? (v.21)." Someone could
be shocked with the idea that
Jesus would have to ask ques-
tions and might not have known
everything! My thought is "Why
not?" Jesus got an answer,
moved on, the boy was healed;
that's the "truth" of the matter. I
have come to think there is a cer-
tain self-centeredness in believ-


Remember the four important 'F's'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Although we never want to
see our children come home
with an "F" on their report card,
there are some "F's" that are
good.
As we think of being the best
Christians we can be, let us con-
sider the importance of the four
following things that begin with
"F": in the faith. One's
(1) FIRM in the faith. One's


faith is foundational to all his/her
Christian life - it is that to which
we add the virtues of the Christ-
ian life (11 Peter 1:5-7). And Acts
16:5 speaks of being established
in the faith. We are not to be
tossed to and fro by various
winds of doctrine (Eph. 4:14).
(2) FAITHFUL in life. Just
believing right is not enough -
one must live according to the
will of God (I Tim. 5:7). We are to
walk worthy of our Christian call-
ing (Eph. 4:1). As people look at


us, they should see that the light
of Christ is shining from us in the
good works we are producing
(Matt. 5:16).
(3) FERVENT in spirit. A Chris-
tian is one who was formerly
dead but is now alive to God
(Rom. 6:11). He/she is to be on
fire for God - not dead, not life-
less, not cold, not lukewarm.
He/she is to be fervent in spirit as
he/she serves the Lord (Rom.
12:11). This fervency will show
forth in his/her prayers (James


5:16), in his/her zeal for good
works (Titus 2:14), and in every
aspect of the Christian life.
(4) FRUITFUL in service. A
Christian who is steadfast,
immoveable, and abounding
always in the work of the Lord
will find his/her labor is not in
vain in the Lord (I Cor: 15:58).
Jesus promises that if we abide
in Him, we will be fruitful
branches (John 15:5).
Let us be ALL 4!


Take time to celebrate our unsung heroes


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Three women were talking. The
first said, "Sometimes I go to the
refrigerator and forget what I need
by the time I get there."
The second woman said,
"When I go upstairs, I can't remem-
berwhether I'm going up for some-
thing or I'm on my way back
down."
The third woman said, "I'm
lucky, I guess I don't have that prob-
lem (knocking on wood). Oh,
there's someone at the door."
Memory is a tricky thing. There
are some things, however, that we
should never forget. One of these is
the sacrifices that others have made
in our behalf.
As Christians, we remember


that God so loved us that He gave us
His only Son,
that whoever
believes in Him
should not per-
ish, but have
everlasting life.
But God has N
also blessed our
lives with indi-
viduals who
have crossed Pastor
our paths and s
have. had an Hicks
impact on who
we are and wdhat we have become.
SYou and I do not have what we
have today by our o4n efforts
alone. There is no greater myth
than that of the self-made man or
woman. From the moment we
come into this world through our
current daily schedules, people


influence our lives. Some we are
aware of and some we might not
be.
Clewistonian, Brad Crooks was
a State Trooper who was killed in
the line of duty. In his memory,
Brad's family presents a scholar-
ship each year to a Clewiston High
School Band member who lives up
to the qualities of an unsung hero.
Philip Thomas grew up in
Clewiston and had a heart for serv-
ice. Philip was scheduled to go into
the Peace Corps when an accident
took his life. Each year, Philip's fam-
ily gives a scholarship to a special
student who excels in service
above self.
These are just a few of the many
out there that have touched lives
and continue to touch lives today.
To the families of all of the Brad
Crooks and Philip Thomases out


there, we thank you for your loved
one! Bless you for keeping their
legacy alive. We may not have
known your loved one, personally,
or even know their name, but we
do recognize their footprints in our
lives and in our world. Because of
the lives these special heroes lived,
lives have been changed and will
continue to be changed in the years
ahead. These changed lives expo-
nentially change more lives. God is
glorified.
For those heroes who are still
with us, we thank God for all you
are and do. We know you don't
always get the recognition you
deserve, but we thank you for help-
ing make our lives more meaning-
ful. May God bless you as you con-
tinue to bless others.


Church selects Senior Pastor Gary Corley


CLEWISTON - Congratula-
tions to Pastor Gary Corley who
was voted in as the new Senior Pas-
tor of Evangel Assembly of God on
Wednesday, April 11.
Pastor Gary and his wife Tara
have served as Associate Pastors


alongside Pastor Ed Corley and his
wife Kathy for the last nine and a
half years. As Pastor Corley makes
his transition to a new pastorate in
Alabama, Pastor Gary took over the
reigns of leadership at Evangel.
Pastor Gary said he and his wife


are very excited about their new because they can remain in Clewis-
ministry role because they know ton Christian School. The Corleys
this is ordained of God. They also say Clewiston is their home and
say they could not ask for a more
loving supportive congregation to they are looking forward to many
be part of. The Corley's five children good years in ministry touching
are excited about Clewiston lives for the cause of Christ.

ing we have an inside track on
"the truth" or that God's revela-
tion is closed and things never
change, or that we can forget
about searching-learning-grow-
ing, or that we should automati-
cally reject new ideas that seem
to conflict with old ones. God


just doesn't work that way-for
which I am eternally grateful.
Anyway, I've always liked choco-
late even when it was supposed
to be "bad" for me. Now I dis-
criminate, take better care of my
teeth and enjoy it. God would
have it that way.

Independent Newspapers will
never accept any advertise-

sidered fraudulent. In all
cases of questionable val-
ue, such as promises of
guaranteed income from
work-at-home programs - if
it sounds too good to be
true, chances are that it is.
If you have questions or
doubts about any ad on
these pages, we advise that
before responding or send-

you check with the Better

Some 800 and 900 telephone
numbers may require an
extra charge, as well as
long distance toll costs. We
will do our best to alert our
reader of these charges in
the ads, but occasionally
we may not be aware of the
charges. Therefore, if you

LAKEPORT WATER ASSOCIATION. INC
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
The LakePort Water Association WaterTreatment System has
a level of total Trihalomelhanes which exceeds standards
SITUATION:
The Department of Environmental Protection requires disinfection of drinking water
to Inactivate possible pathogens, because the health benefits of disinfection far
outweigh Its risks. However, when used In the treatment of drinking water, some
disinfectants combine with organic and inorganic matter present In the water to
form chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBP'S). A number oft DBP's such
as Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and Haloace Acids (HAA5's) may be a
health concern at certain levels of exposure.
The laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collected in April2007, Janu-
ary 2007, November 2006, and July 2006, now indicate a running annual average
TTHM concentration of 85.1 micrograms per liter (ug/L). Therefore, The depart-
ment has determined that this water system has generated a Maximum contami-
nant Level (MC) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida
administrative Code (A.C.), identifies the MCL forTTHM's as 80 (ug/L).
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maxi-
mum Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.-
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMER DO?
This is not and immediate risk, however, until the problem is corrected, any custom-
ers who are concerned about their exposure to TTHm's may wish to use alterna-
tive sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water
treated by an appropriate home watertreatment devise. Appropriate home water
treatment devices are those certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)
for reducing TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treat-
ment plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is expected to be complet-
ed in late 2007.
For more information please contact Jeff Ussery at (863)946-1300 or write to:

On Tuesday, May 8, Gov.
Charlie Crist hosted Tallahassee
Tuesday. The Governor uses
Tuesday to meet with various
groups of. Floridians from
around the state. He used this
Tuesday to meet with 12 teach-
ers from around the state to dis-
cuss educational concerns. Ms.
Rachel Peregoy of Glades Cen-
tral Community High School
was selected to attend the Gov-
ernor's mansion for a living
room chat.
Ms. Peregoy spoke to the Gov-
ernor about the high transfer
rate at low performing schools.
Glades Central has had six prin-
cipals in ten years and a large
percentage of the teaching staff
transfers every year. She feels
that there need to be incentives
to remain at a low-performing
school and not just large bonus-
es for signing on. She also feels
that low performing school
should be required to limit the
number of beginning teachers
they hire.
"I think the discussion was
helpful in bringing some atten-
tion toschools schools struggling to
meet state standards." Governor


Crist stated that he would like to
continue to meet with the edu-
cator for further discussions.
