CLEWISTON - A big proj-
ect has started to unfold for the
Clewiston area, with the
ground breaking ceremony for
the new Clewiston Commerce
Park
On Friday, June 8, the cere-
mony took place, attended by
many of the people who
worked very hard to make this
project a reality.
As the Clewiston Com-
merce Park unfolds at its
ground breaking, it also wel-
comed its first tenant-The
Pranasleep Manufacturing
Plant.
Upon completion of the
industrial subdivision of the
park, 17 acres will be available
in lots of varying sizes with one
10-acre lot already dedicated to
Pranasleep.
As the groundbreaking invo-
cation was finished, the project
plans were unveiled, showing
the buildings, roadways and
landscaping.

Accident report was a hoax


Crank call
puts juvenile
behind bars

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - A 16-year-
old Montura girl was arrested
Friday after a false report of an
accident led rescue workers on
a pointless six-hour search.
On Thursday evening at
approximately 9:30 p.m., Keith
Yates contacted the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office (HCSO)
Clewiston Sub-Station and stat-
ed that a teenaged girl called
him on his Nextel radio asking


for help. He told deputies the
girl said she had been in a car
accident, and that the car was
on fire.
The girl reportedly indicated
to Mr. Yates that she was injured
and that she believed her legs
were broken. She reportedly
told him she was somewhere
around the Flaghole Road and
Montura area, but wasn't able
to recall the exact location.
The HCSO dispatcher called
Montura Fire Department,
Medic Unit and First Respon-
ders to search for the girl.
After HCSO deputies were
unable to locate the victim,
Deputy Jesse Poole went to Mr.
Yates' residence in an effort to


make contact with the victim.
Deputy Poole was able to make
contact with the victim via Nex-
tel radio. According to Deputy
Poole, the girl stated she was
passing in and out of conscious-
ness and could not move due to
her injuries.
At that time, Deputy Poole
retrieved the girl's Nextel radio
number from Mr. Yates' phone
in order to keep a line of com-
munication open.
According to the HCSO
report, Deputy Poole stated that
the girl sounded weak.
Deputy Poole alerted the res-
cue search team of the updates
with the victim, which stated
that she was close to a two-way


paved road in a wooded area
and could hear cows close by.
They tried using the global
positioning system to locate the
victim's Nextel phone signal,
but were unsuccessful.
After three hours of search-
ing, additional units were called
in from the Hendry County
Sheriff's Department, including
the East District deputies and
members of the Criminal Inves-
tigation Division, as well as help
from Montura Fire Department,
Fish and Wildlife Commission,
the Seminole Police Depart-
ment, Medic Units and First
Responders. The Lee County
Sheriff's Department sent a hel-


icopter to aid the searchers.
The search continued and
was expanded to the Montura
Estates area for three more
hours. Deputy Poole continued
to have periodic communica-
tion with the girl through the
two-way Nextel radio until her
battery went dead.
For six hours, the search
continued until all the areas
were thoroughly searched 'and
all the assisting resources being
exhausted. At that time, Lt. Joe
Lee decided to suspend the
search until daylight.
The next day, on Friday, June
8, an investigation revealed that

FCAT scores


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
HENDRY.COUNTY - Sum-
mer is here, the last thing on
most children's' mind is their
studies.
But, for Marion Daly, CEO
of fcathelp.com says, "Fifteen
minutes a day will give you a
10 percent increase on FCAT
scores."
According to Mr. Daly, the
300,000 page website
fcathelp.com was created just
this past December, by 23 cho-
sen Florida teachers from
Volisia, Orange, Seminole
and Lake Counties to help
children in the third through


eighth grades with the Lan-
guage Arts and Math curricu-
lum.
This program is funded by
corporations through Busi-
ness Community of Florida,
said Mr. Daly.
"This website is 100 per-
cent free, no passwords and
no pop-ups," said Mr. Daly.
The purpose of it is to help
children practice the basics in
preparation for the FCAT, Mr.
Daly explained.
According to the recent
FCAT scores, Mr. Daly
explained, the local five sur-
rounding counties which

CLEWISTON - "Rvo Mon-
tura residents were seriously
injured after being involved in a
vehicle accident with a semi-
truck this past weekend.
Just a little after 10 p.m. on
Saturday, June 9, Roberto
Mestrues, 59, and Susy Boga-
rous, 42, of Montura Ranch
Estates were traveling in a 2003
Honda Utility Truck heading
north on Flaghole Road


approaching US Highway 27.
George Buck 58, was driving
west on US Highway 27 in a
1992 semi-freightliner truck. As
Mr. Mestrues' vehicle entered
U.S. Highway 27, it collided
with the semi.
The driver's side of the
semi's was struck by the pas-
senger's side of Mr. Mestrues'
vehicle, according to the Flori-
da Highway Patrol (FHP)
report.

Drought increases brush fire danger
Due to the danger of brush fires, emergency officials are reminding community mem-
bers to be extremely careful this coming holiday. Instead of purchasing fireworks to
set off at home, it's safer to attend a community fireworks event. In recent weeks,
brush fires and muck fires have raged along the dry lake bed of Lake Okeechobee.

Beacon summer camps


receive funding boost


PAHOKEE - Wally Lutz, owner
of Lutz Builders, Inc., recently pre-
sented a check for $500 to help
fund Summer Camp Scholarships
for six children.
"Many families have two or
three children who want to
attend summer camp at the
Pahokee Beacon Center but can
not afford to send them all, these
funds will allow several children
to attend the camp that other-
wise could not have attended,"
stated Mark Coppock, Beacon
Center Director. He also said, "Mr.
Lutz is to be commended for his
efforts to help these families"
The Pahokee Beacon Center


Youth Enrichment Academy
Summer Camp will begin June 4
and run for eight weeks. The
camp theme for this summer is
"Wet and Wild". The children
will learn about sea life and wild
animals as part of the summer
camp curriculum.
In addition, campers will go
on several field trips to learn
about the ocean and land ani-
mals as well as have some good
old fashion fun. The summer
camp is a great educational and
recreational program for children
and allows them to continue
learning during the summer
months.


Health

HENDRY/GLADES - Tubercu-
losis (TB) is a disease that is spread
from person to person through the
air. TB usually affects the lungs. The
bacteria are put into the air when a
person with TB of the lung coughs,
sneezes, laughs, or sings. TB can
also affect other parts of the body,
such as the brain, the kidney, or the
spine. TB is a disease that can be
cured if treated properly.
TB can affect anyone of any age
Anyone can get Tuberculosis,
but some people are at higher risk.
Those at higher risk include:
* Infants and small children;
* People who share the same
breathing space (such as family
members, friends, coworkers) with
someone who has TB disease;
* People with low incomes liv-
ing in crowded conditions, have
poor nutrition and have poor
health care;
* Homeless people,
* People born in countries
where a lot of people have Tuber-
culosis
* Nursing home residents,
* Prisoners,
* Alcoholics and injection drug
users and
* People with medical condi-
tions such as diabetes, kidney fail-
ure, and those with weakened
immune systems (such as HIV or
AIDS)
The symptoms of Tuberculosis
disease may include:
Feeling weak or sick, rapid
weight loss (over a few weeks or
months), fever, or night sweats.
Symptoms of Tuberculosis of the
lungs may include cough, chest
pain, or coughing up blood. Other
symptoms depend on the particu-
lar part of the body that is affected.
Tuberculosis infection is differ-
ent than Tuberculosis disease


Dept. of]

People with Tuberculosis dis-
ease are sick from bacteria that are
active in their body. They usually
have one or more of the symptoms
of Tuberculosis. These people are
often capable of giving the infection
to others. Medications can cure TB
disease; usually three or more med-
ications are given to treat Tuberculo-
sis disease. People with Tuberculo-
sis infection (without disease) have
the bacteria that cause Tuberculosis
in their body, but they are not sick
because the germ lies inactive in the
body. They cannot spread the germ
to others. Medications are often pre-
scribed for these people to prevent
them from developing Tuberculosis
disease in the future.
A skin test can tell if you have TB
infection
You can get a Tuberculosis skin
test from a doctor or local health
department. A negative test usually
means the person is not infected.
However, the test may be falsely
negative in a person who has been
recently infected (it usually takes
two to 10 weeks after exposure to a
person with TB disease for the skin
test to be positive). The test may
also be falsely negative if the per-
son's immune system is not work-
ing properly.
A positive skin test reaction usu-
ally means that the person has
been infected with TB. It does not
necessarily mean that the person
has Tuberculosis disease. Other
tests, such as an x-ray or sputum
sample, are needed to see if the
person has Tuberculosis disease.
If you have TB infection or dis-
ease:
Get all the tests required by your
doctor.
Stay at home until your doctor
tells you it is okay to return to work
or school. Do not have visitors


Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy; I
have an outside dog named
Larry. Larry is a neutered Pit Bull
mix dog who is a little over a
year old. Just recently we adopt-
ed Moe and Curley from the
Humane Society - two other
mixed neutered male dogs. All
seems to be fine, but all of a sud-
den I have this big problem with
flies biting the Three Stooges
ears? Is it because I now have


three dogs in the yard?
What do I do Doc?
Jo in South Bay.
Answer: Dear Jo; What you
are describing is fly strike. It is a
big problem especially when the
heat is HOT!!!
These flies will bite and
annoy the dog's ears until they
start to bleed and form sores.
Cleaning the ears is a big help,
but putting a fly cream on the


ears will help even more. A good
quality fly cream will keep the
flies away and also promote the
sores to heal. Ask your veterinar-
ian to recommend a good one.
Hope that helps the 3
stooges...Nyuk, Nyuk, Nyuk!
Take care, Doc Savvy.

Office alerted Station 72 in Paho-
kee of a commercial structure
fire at U.S. Sugar's recently
closed Bryant Sugar Mill at 36501
Mill Road. Initial response was
for Engine 72-Bravo, Engine 72,
Tender 72 and District Chief 7.
Battalion Chief 7 also responded
from nearby. Quint 73 from near-
by Belle Glade was requested
and responded along with
Engine 73.
Engine 72-Bravo was -first on
scene and was faced with an
ominous site - large clouds of
steam and smoke emitting from
two sides of one corner of the
massive structure. Gushing
water flowed freely from the
structure as a plant worker
attempted to cool the structure
from an adjacent roof using a
fire hose from a hose cabinet
nearby. Sugar mill employees
verified that there was fire in two
huge chutes leading up to a large
silo. The area of the fire was
approximately 75' to 100' above
the ground. It appeared that
there was no easily accessible
way to reach the seat of the fire.
Incident Command, initially


and equipment, the crew deter-
mined, along with Battalion 7,
that Quint 73 would be needed to
flow massive quantities of water
onto the silo and chutes in order
to cool them enough to be
opened and ventilated.
Once the area was cooled,
plant workers in a high-lift rig
were elevated to the top of the
chutes. Welders used a cutting
torch to cut a large hole in the
tops of the chutes. These holes
allowed the heat of the fire to
further vent and gave firefighters
on Quint 73 the ability to direct
1,000 gallons of water per
minute into the structures there-
by bringing the situation under
control.
It was determined that
welders using torches to disman-
tle the chutes accidentally ignited
the sugar and its byproducts in
one of the chutes and that smoke
carried heat and product into the
second chute and the silo caus-
ing them to ignite as well.
There were no injuries and no
significant property loss as the
facility was being dismantled
after the company's relocation to
a newer facility. Plant workers
provided invaluable information
and assistance in the safe and effi-
cient mitigation of a most chal-
lenging and unusual incident.

Fire crews in the high lift

An opening cut with a torch allowed extinguishment and ven-

Group divided on lake water flow


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE - Proponents
of a southern flow way from Lake
Okeechobee did not get the sup-
port they hoped for from an envi-
ronmental group.
The Coalition for Responsible
Management of Lake Okee-
chobee, St. Lucie and Caloosa-
hatchee Estuaries and Lake Worth
Lagoon meeting in Okeechobee
on June 7, failed to endorse Plan 6.
This controversial plan would have
provide for excess water from Lake
Okeechobee to be channeled
through a flow way at the southern
end of the lake where it would be
cleaned up and sent on to the Ever-
glades. -
A southern flow way would
lessen the amount of water that
would have to be sent to estuaries
during times of high water.
The coalition is made up of
commissioners representing Okee-
chobee, St. Lucie, Martin, Lee,
Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades, High-
lands, Osceola and Polk counties.
Plan 6 calls for a flow way start-
ing two miles north of the Bolles
Canal. It would vary in width from
7.2 miles at the northern end to
13.1 miles at the lower end. It
would be 22.5 miles long with a
capacity of 6,600 cubic feet per sec-
ond. The existing east levee of the
Miami Canal and the west levee of
the North New River Canal would
serve as levees for the flowway.
After hearing several hours of
expert presentations and being
bombarded with technical data,
commissioners adopted a resolu-
tion supporting "all means of rout-
ing excess water from Lake Okee-
chobee that benefits Lake
Okeechobee, the estuaries and
Everglades National Park."
The resolution, as originally
written, had stated support of "fur-
ther investigation of routing water
from Lake Okeechobee by means
of a storage flow way south to one
or more of the water conservation
areas."
While the original resolution
specifically endorsed a southern
flow way, the amendment offered
by commissioner Kevin McCarthy
of Hendry County and approved by
an 8-2 vote, voiced support for a
wide range of projects and did not
specifically mention a southern


flow way.
Lee County Commissioners Ray
Judah and Martin County Commis-
sioner Sarah Heard voted against
the resolution.
Dr. Paul Gray of the Audubon
Society advocated water storage,
but north of the lake. He noted that
the conflicting information being
presented on the flow was shows
how complicated the situation is.
Even though Lake Okeechobee
is as large as the Everglades, Dr.
Gray noted that not much money is
spent upstream.
He also suggested what might
be called a modified Plan 6 that
called for widening the Miami and
North New River canals because
he sees a need to move more
water south. He said studies would
have to be conducted to see how
wide the canals would need to be.
They could be one-half mile wide
or studies could show that 100-
yard-wide canals would convey
enough water south. He said the
narrower canals might be better
than a wider flow ways to pretreat
water.
He said that there is either too
much or too little water.
Under the .current water man-
agement system, high lake levels
often trigger large releases to the
estuaries and upset the salinity bal-
ance.
Dr. Gray noted that there is no
infrastructure to move water south.
"I have backed the flow way for
a long time," offered Wayne Nel-
son, executive director of Fisher-
man Against Destruction of the
Environment. "We must clean up
Lake Okeechobee."
While emphases in the past
were on Everglades restoration, he
said he had been stressing cleaning
up the lake.
"Lake water must be cleaned
up before it can head south," he
told the board.
He mentioned artifacts recently
found on the dry lake bed to back
up his claim that the lake has his-
torically been at a lower level than
it is being maintained now.
"I support sending the water
south," asserted Tina Richards, an
intern with the Arthur Marshall
Foundation, a non-profit group
dedicated to preserving the Ever-
glades. She advocated long term
viable options rather than short
term solutions that are politically

correct. She said she would like for
her children to be able to swim in
Floridawater.
"Conceptually, it is very nice,"
said Dr. Richard Punnett who did
research in the 1990s on Plan 6 for
the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers.
"The disagreement lies in technical
details."
He contended that a flow way
would not flow at the correct times
without proper management.
He said the flow way was not
the most efficient plan proposed
and that a flow way does not act as
wetland.
A 1999 feasibility study conclud-
ed a flow way creates a water sup-
ply burden on the system without
clear hydrological benefits.
Soil subsidence and evapora-
tion would be determents to a
southern flow way, according to
Dr. Punnett.
He contended that delivery of
water to a flow way would be a
problem.
By storing excess water in the
lake, Dr. Punnett said "you can
meet more of the needs of users."
He stated that at times when it
would be desirable to discharge
water south from the lake; the
water conservation areas would be
full and could not take any more
water.
Dr. Punnett presented charts to
show that when the lake level was
high, the water level in the water
control areas was also high.
"It isn't a simple matter of redi-
recting the water," he said.
He claimed that today the
extremes of water level fluxuations
are greater than they were before
the lake was managed for flood
control and water supply. Because
of that, he feels more storage is
needed.
"Managed storage is what we
really need," he said. "A flow way
will not provide storage."
The southern flow way cause
was advocated by John Marshall of
the Arthur Marshall Foundation.
He claimed that earlier models
used by Dr. Punnett were based on
faulty topographical data.
To counter claims that there is
not enough water for a flow way,
Mr. Marshall stated that over 50 per-
cent of the Everglades are lost, yet
nearly 100 percent of the rainfall
remains. He said a flow way would
use less than 20 percent of the orig-
inal flow plain.
He claimed that a flow way is a
better functional alternative than
deep reservoirs with low or no
water treatment value.
Mr. Marshall claimed a flow way


would mimic the historic lake spill-
over through the original pond
apple forest and saw grass plains.
As to the assertion that evapora-
tion would negate any benefits of a
flow way, Mr. Marshall claims that
rainfall always exceeds evapora-
tion. If that were not true, Florida
would be a desert.
As for water quality, Mr. Mar-
shall contended that a flow way
would more than double the treat-
ment area provided by current
storm water treatment areas.
He claims Plan 6 provides the
most ecological benefit and recon-
nects the entire Everglades ecosys-
tem.
"Plan 6 looked to be a good fix
back in 1981, and earlier, and still
looks that way," Mr. Marshall said.
"If we have a flow way to take
water from the lake, we would
have something meaningful," said
Mr. Judah. "Most of water from
EAA does not come from the lake."
"The system today is not what it
was and it would be very difficult to
get it that way," offered SFWMD's
Tommy Strowd.
He claimed that evaporation in
a flow way would be a problem.
He mentioned the man-made
structures that would have to be
removed to accommodate a flow
way. He claimed that storm water
treatment areas are more effective
than shallow flow ways.
"Commitment of additional
resources to further investigate a
southern flowway are not warrant-
ed at this time," he said.
Commissioner Joe Smith of St.
Lucie County suggested a full cost
analysis of Plan 6.
At least one commissioner was
sold on Plan 6.
"This is a good time to reconsid-
er Plan 6 as a method to get clean
water to the park," was the opinion
of Mrs. Heard.
An opposing view was
expressed by Mr. McCarthy.
"This is the answer to the estu-
aries," he said.
But he went on to say that it is
not the whole answer. He advocat-
ed looking at all means of routing
excess water south and not limit-
ing the study to Plan 6.
"We have heard a lot of evi-
dence that says a flow ways will
not work," he said.
He suggested multiple flow
ways or perhaps a small flow way
and lot more reservoirs.
Mr. Judah contended that
SFWMDs way of looking at water
storage is not in the best interest of
the estuaries.

Lake coalition updated on muck project innm


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida


OKEECHOBEE - There is at
least one advantage to the current
record low level of Lake Okee-
chobee which will help improve
both water quality and fish habi-
tat.
Members of the County Coali-
tion for Responsible Management
of Lake Okeechobee, St. Lucie
and Caloosahatchee Estuaries
and Lake Worth Lagoon learned
at their meeting on Thursday,
June 7, that the record low level is
making it easy to remove muck
from the now exposed lake bot-
tom.
The coalition met at the Okee-
chobee Shrine Club..
Coalition members also
received the good news that
some rain may be on the way and
that the recent session of the legis-
lature was generous to environ-
mental causes. In addition, they
received a report on the condition
of Herbert Hoover Dike.
The coalition is made. up of
commissioners representing
Okeechobee, St. Lucie, Martin,
Lee, Palm Beach, Hendry, Glades,
Highlands, Osceola and Polk
counties.
Dr. Susan Gray, of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD), said there are five
sites around the northern and
western side of the lake where
muck is being scraped off the lake
bottom and hauled away. About
500,000 cubic yards of muck have
been removed to date from sites
at Eagle Bay, Northwest Marsh,
Horse Island, Harney Pond and
Fisheating Bay.
Some of the muck is being put
on SFWMD-owned land and
some on private lands. The muck
removed in Glades County is
being temporarily stored at the
Glades County Road Department.
Scraping muck off the lake
bottom will improve water clarity


PBCC has summer


youth college


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE - Palm Beach
Community College will hold its
first Summer Youth Collegebegin-
ning Monday, June 18.
In the six-week program,
which ends on Friday, July 27, stu-
dents from ages eight to 14 will be
able to pick a schedule of classes
while enjoying a college experi-
ence without the pressure for
homework, grades and tests,
according to youth college offi-
cials.
According to Roz McFarland,
the registrar for PBCC, the camp is
expected to include about 60 stu-
dents from the Glades area. Ms.
.McFarland is expecting that the
youth college will be a great expe-
rience for the students.
"I hope that the students will
have a positive and fun experi-
ence, which will provide them
with a taste of the college experi-
ence," said Ms. McFarland.
She said students are expected
to bring their basic school sup-
plies and an art box to the college
throughout the six-week pro-
gram.
Classes offered include fun
and fitness, photography, t-shirt
designing, journalism and a spe-
cial class called "What's Growing
around Us," co-sponsored by
Okeelanta Corp., U.S. Sugar and
Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative
of America.
Co-sponsors for the scholar-
ship portion of th'e youth college
is the law firm of Searcy, Denny,
Scarola, Barnhart and Shipley.
Dr. Beverly Robinson, the


provost of PBCC, said Primetime
of Palm Beach County, Inc. is the
primary sponsor of the camp.
"Primetime" provided a grant to
the college for staffing and other
camp expenses.
Apart from the general youth
college, there will be a health
summer camp, entitled 'Scrubs',
which will be coordinated by Eliz-
abeth Cayson. The health camp is
sponsored by the Palm Beach
County Health Care District.
During the health camp, there
will be presentations by locals
such as Dr. Noelle Savedoff, a vet-
erinarian who is also known as
Doc Savvy, Dr. Michael Fliehs, an
ophthalmologist and various
physicians.
Participants. will be taking
tours of facilities such as Glades
General Hospital, Nova South-
eastern University's Sports Medi-
cine Campus in Ft. Lauderdale
and the Trauma Hawk Hanger in
West Palm Beach.
Other trips for the youth col-
lege participants include the Lion
Country Safari on June 29 and an
ice skating trip to Boynton Beach
on July 13. The camp celebration
will convene on July 26.
"One of the things we are most
proud of is that all of the staff for
the summer camp are from the
Glades communities and the fact
that we received lots of coopera-
tion from the .cities," said Dr.
Robinson.
For more information, please
contact Earl Bryant at 993-1169 or
Samantha Wallace at 993-1150.

and provide a better fish habitat.
In some areas, Dr. Gray said SFMD
will be replanting native plants. As
the muck is being removed
SFWMD is trying to preserve the
native bulrush.
In one of the areas in Glades
County, Dr. Gray said an old boat
was found. That area is being kept
secret and an archaeologist has
been notified.
Without minimizing the dan-
ger to houses in Glades County,
Dr. Gray said the recent muck fire
on the lake helped the lake bot-
tom cleanup process. She said in
some cases the muck burned
down to the original sand and the
fire burned up a lot of exotic
plants. Another plus is that the fire
occurred in an area where con-
tractors would have had trouble
getting access to scrape up the
muck.
The fire was so large that it
could be seen from space. Dr.
Gray displayed a satellite photo-
graph that clearly showed flames
and smoke at the northwest edge
of the lake.
Muck removal was also sup-
posed to take place at South Bay.
But this has not happened
because of the peat under the
muck. The machinery has not
been able to stand up on the soft
lake bottom. Dr. Gray said funding
for that particular muck removal
project might be shifted to other
muck removal sites.
She said the total cost of the
program is $11.4 million, with
$2.5 million of that amount com-
ing from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC).
Dr. Gray said she was robbing
funds from other SFWMD proj-
ects to pay for the muck removal.
Turning to the legislative
report, SFWMD's Ernie Barnett
said the 2007 state legislative ses-
sion was "wonderful," as far as
environmental issues are con-
cerned.


He went on to say that proper-
ty tax reform issues to be handled
at the special session later this
month could affect SFWMD proj-
ects, as well as the county's ability
to borrow money.
Mr. Barnett discussed various
pieces of legislation that will pro-
vide funding for Lake Okee-
chobee issues. Total funding
appropriated was $285,000,000,
which includes estuary funding.
Good news was also
announced by SFWMD's Cal Nei-
drauer.
"The good news is it's raining;
the wet season is officially here,"
he said.
Mr. Neidrauer predicted that.
next month the SFWMD board of
governors might ease up on
water restriction since we are
entering the rainy season.
He said from Nov. 2, 2006,
through June 1, 2007, 11 inches of
rain fell over the SFWMD area and
that 18.8 inches is the average. He
went on to say that rainfall in eight
of the last nine months has been
below average.
Mr. Neidrauer stated that the
last wet season was drier than
normal. This made the situation
worse going into the recently
ended dry season. Between
November 2006 and April 2007,
8.4 inches of rain fell over the
SFWMD area. The normal for that
period is 14.6 inches
Tropical Storm Barry dropped
2.5 inches of rain over the district.
Unfortunately, Mr. Neidrauer said,
SFWMD cannot store rainwater
when it falls so fast. Some of it
had to be discharged to tide
because there is no place to store
water east of 1-95.
The National Weather Service
is predicting above normal rain
for June and above normal rain
for the latter part of the rainy sea-
son.
Dennis Duke, chief of Ever-
glades Restoration for the Jack-
sonville District, U. S Army Corps


of Engineers (COE) - Jacksonville
District, spoke of the rehabilita-
tion program, on the Herbert
Hoover Dike.
He said that all dams leak.
Even the Herbert Hoover Dam in
Nevada leaks because the water
pressure forces seepage through
the concrete.
"Seepage in itself is not bad,"
he said "as long as the water is
clear."
Clear water means that dam or
levee material is not .being
scoured out by water pressure.
Rehabilitation work is currently
being done on the section of the
dike known as Reach 1, which
extends from Port Mayaca to Belle
Glade.
Mr. Duke described COE's
plans to fill in the toe ditch on the
outside of the levee and create a
seepage berm to prevent scour-
ing. A cutoff wall to force seepage
deeper is also being built through
the center of the dike.
Commissioners from the vari-
ous counties were given a chance
to address the coalition.
Commissioner Sarah Heard of
Martin County pointed out that
because of the drought, the estu-
aries are in good shape.
"We are glad, but we are angry
our estuaries do not look like this
every year," she stated.
The commissioner frorh
Glades County, Russell Echols,
complained of access to the lake.
While he understood that access
is a problem now given current
drought conditions, he would like
for SFMWD and COE to help
Glades County with the constant
problem of lake access. He com-
pared his situation to the coast
counties having a beach and not
having a way to get to it.

Just be glad someone is helping Park


This weekend we had the
pleasure of attending the wed-
ding of dear friends of ours. It
was supposed to be a beach cer-
emony but Tropical Storm Barry
had other ideas. We worry and
plan so hard and then plan B
happens. The day Robert and I
got married it rained all day. The
preacher even got stuck in our
driveway! Rain is a good sign.
Our friends' wedding ceremo-
ny was preformed in the parking
area underneath a restaurant
with all their friends and family
around them. Isn't that all that
matters. At the dinner after the
wedding, the bride asked me a
cute question and wondered
how my members would
respond to this.
Before I tell you the question I
want to tell you about a question
my sweet darling asked me after
we got married. His question had
to do with how I folded towels.
He asked if he folded the towels
would I refold them. I told him
that if he folded the towels that I
would thank him and put them
away. I asked, "WHY WOULD I
REFOLD THEM?" He told me that


The
Flylady

Cilley


his first wife would refold them
because they had not been fold-
ed the way her mother taught
her. This was so funny to me.
The groom had asked his
bride a similar question the other
day. Are you going to fuss at me if
I put the toilet paper on the hold-
er the wrong way? He was seri-
ous! His bride looked at him like
he was nuts. She said, "Do you
mean there is a way to put it on
the holder that is a right way?"
The groom went on to explain
that this has been a huge bone of
contention with the last woman
he was married to and he didn't
want to make any mistakes.
So the bride being a curious
sort decided to ask her friends


and family about if there was a
right way or wrong way to put
the roll of toilet paper on the
holder; much to her surprise they
all had a STRONG opinion on
this. So her question to me was,
do I have a-specific way I load the
toilet paper. I just died laughing.
I am happy to not have to drip
dry! If this question hits too close
to home for you then we need to
talk. Perfectionism has hit a
whole new level. When we allow
something so stupid as how a roll
of toilet paper is loaded on the
holder to turn us into a raving
maniac then we need to find
some relief from our perfection-
ism. Now if you prefer it one way
and change it yourself without
pitching a fit then that is ok but
every time you flip the roll I want
you to realize that perfectionism
is there. I did away with the hold-
ers in my bathroom so that
became a non-problem in my life.
This weekend I gave the bride
and groom a card with these
words written inside.
What do you give someone
who has everything they could
ever want since they have found

each other? I'll give you these
words.
Don't sweat the small stuff;
what doesn't matter just doesn't
matter.
Laugh every day even if it is at
yourself.
And love like there is no
tomorrow!
Dear Friends; Do you see how
these simple words rule out per-
fectionism when it comes to toi-
let paper and towels? How toilet
paper is loaded is one of those
things that just doesn't matter.
We don't have to do this to our-
selves and our families another
day.
Are you ready to FLY without
perfectionism holding you
down!

Local minister and family head north to new church


CLEWISTON - Rev. J. Mark
Harris Sr. and his wife of 28 years,
Michele, came to Clewiston to pas-
tor Lighthouse Apostolic Church,
formerly First Pentecostal Church,
located at the corners of Evercane
and Ridgdill Roads in 1988. Their
19 years here has been quite long
by local standards for a pastor.
The Harris family has recently
accepted the pastorate of the First
Pentecostal Church of Pinck-
neyville, Illinois. They will be leav-
ing on June 20.
Rev. and Mrs. Harris are both
Florida natives and have been here
in the state for the past 25 years.
They have been blessed with three
terrific children, all born after their
move here.
Christin, 18, is a 2007 honors
graduate of Clewiston High School
and will continue her education in
Illinois. She hopes to major in ele-
mentary education and has left the
door open to return to Clewiston
anrd teach one day.

School. She will begin high school
this fall in Illinois.

Rev. J. Mark Harris, Sr., wife, Michele, daughters Emilly and
Christin and son, Jonathan will soon be packing up and mov-
Ing north to Illinois. Rev. Harris has accepted a ministerial
position there after leading the Lighthouse Apostolic Church
congregation for nearly two decades.


Last but not least, Jonathan at
eight years old. He has just finished
second grade at Eastside Elemen-
tary where he worked very hard,
maintaining an A average.
Jonathan will begin the third


grade in Illinois.
Both Rev. and Mrs. Harris admit
the toughest challenge will be for
their children to adjust to a new
home in Illinois, which is so differ-
ent from south Florida.


Rev. Harris is a graduate of
Apostolic Bible Institute in St. Paul,
Minnesota, where he received his
bachelor's degree in Theology. He
has been an ordained minister
with the United Pentecostal
Church International of Hazel-
wood, Mississippi since 1983.
Rev. and Mrs. Harris met and
married shortly after High School
in Ocala.
They both will leave many
friends and loved ones behind as
they head north. They moved
here from Jacksonville where
Rev. Harris served as an associate
pastor. Rev. Harris also was an
assistant pastor in Iowa and pas-
tor in Lake City, all before arriv-
ing in Clewiston.
Though the Harris family
deeply loves their congregation
here, they know things change.
Rev. Harris acknowledges that
God's will often requires the unex-
pected and God at times moves us
away from our comfort zones.
To their church and the com-
munity of Clewiston the Harris
family simply wants to say,
Thanks!

Seeing the big picture: doing what really needs to be done Iandahalfhoursof
* Pmflwe..


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Recently, I was privileged to offi-
ciate at a very beautiful wedding.
As the service was about to begin, a
photographer was standing with
his back to the ....
best man and
groom, taking
pictures of _
those who . i .a 0
were in atten-
dance. He was
moving
around, block-
ing the view of
the groom who Samuel S.
was waiting for Thoms
his bride to Thomas
come up the aisle; avery, very spe-
cial moment in the life of this cou-
ple. I told the photographer to
move out, and he did. I envisioned
this person doing what he felt he
was commissioned to do and to
take best advantage of the "photo-
op" that was before him.
My task, however, was to keep
the whole event in perspective; a
sacred moment among two very
special people. For this couple, this
was their moment and it was to be
hallowed and revered. The photo
opportunities would come second;
they could be staged later or
recorded from a different place.
, Before coming to Clewiston, I
learned of a tragedy that struck at


a center for young persons with
problems. A resident took his
own life. He was found by one of
the staff members who promptly
went about taking pictures of the
scene before doing anything to
intervene directly.
I can guess that the scenario that
set the stage for his acts were some-
thing like hearing again and again
from administration to "document-
document-document, record any-
thing that is out of the ordinary,
make sure you take pictures, have it
down, keep notes" and so on.
When the tragedy struck, he did
what he felt was what should be
done, but he missed the big picture.
That is what happens, tragically, so
often when we human beings lose
perspective of our place in the
scheme of things.
There is a Biblical encounter
between the Lord and two sisters,
Martha and Mary, as He visits their
home. Mary was sitting at the Lord's,
feet, listening; Martha was distract-
ed by the preparations she felt need-
ed to be made when receiving
guests. Martha complains "Lord,
don't you care that my sister has left
me to do the work by myself? Tell
her to help me (Luke 10:40)." Jesus
tells Martha "You are worried about
many things, "but only one thing is
needed. Mary has chosen what is
better and it will not be taken away
from her (v.41)." I can also imagine
Martha feeling obligated to do what
she feels needed to be done, but


missing the big picture.
Jesus sidesteps the call to be
drawn into the struggle between
them by refusing to tell Mary what
Martha feels she should be told;
seeing the time they would spend
together as more important than
the preparations that can wait.
Photography can contribute to a
wedding but it is not the reason for
it; residential staff are to provide
records of events but they are there
first and foremost for the well-
being of those they are called to
help; preparations for guests are
signs of caring, but they are not as
important as having the guests and
sharing with them in the first place.
My vocation often calls me to
set priorities and choose about
what is the most-needed or best
use of resources and energies, and
often on the spur of the moment. I,
as well as all of us, must decide
what is the most important and
direct our attentions and energies
to the big picture; seeing our part as
contributing, but maybe not being
the whole event or greatest need.
We serve by contributing; when
we do our part and when we keep
things in perspective.
I remember a story about a
man who came from Hawaii and
told about his schooling there. He
told about learning arithmetic;
two pineapples and two pineap-
ples make four pineapples. He
told about his geography lessons;
the world is round but not quite


perfectly round-like a pineapple.
He told about his lessons in sci-
ence; pineapples were so much
water and provided so much
nutrition. He told about ecology;
the skin of the pineapple and the
leaves could be recycled to make
many useful things. Then one day,
he came to the mainland and
found that the world didn't really
run on pineapples after all and
that's the day he got a glimpse
into the big picture of things.
We need to keep our lives in
perspective too; seeing God's pic-
ture and finding our place in it.
That's our calling; doing our part
and seeing things from God's view.

Money - It can buy medicine, but not a healthy body


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It can buy a house, but not a
home. It can buy a bed, but not
sleep. It can buy a clock, but not
time. It can buy you a book, but
not knowledge. It can buy you a
position, but not respect. It can
buy you medicine, but not health.
It can buy you blood, but not life.
It can buy you sex, but not love.
Money isn't everything, and
often causes pain and suffering. I
tell you all this because I am your
friend and as your friend I want to
work hard to take away your pain
and suffering. So, send me your
money and I will suffer for you.
(Smile!)


Life is amazing. Everyday we
are faced with truths. But in the
midst of these truths we some-
times think we
are the excep-
tion. Yes, I
agree that
money isn't
everything, but
I can handle it.
I know there
might be some
signs of trou-
ble in my life, John
but I can man- Hicks
age. Yes, there
have been warning signs that all
is not well with my body, but they
come and go and right now they
are gone. I just don't want to deal
with it now. I'll be okay. I can do


what I need to do - don't worry
about me.
Thinking like that can get us
into trouble. It's like the man who
shared, "There are just two kinds
of people in the world today -
those who like math and those
who don't." Thinking like that
just doesn't add up.
The reason I'm sharing this is
that even with the grace of God,
there go I. The spirit may be will-
ing, but the flesh is weak. As I sit
writing this article, I am preparing
to go to the hospital. The reason
was that I did not take the signs
seriously. What was a minor con-
cern of mine turned -into an
explosion of infection throughout
my body. My kidney was blocked
by a tiny stone. What was a tiny


infection turned into a major
emergency which required IV's
and strong antibiotics.
It's not as if I didn't know bet-
ter. I knew what I needed to do
to, but the truth is, when push
comes to shove, most of us need
to be shoved! Our tendency is to
not go to the doctor or make the
lifestyle changes that would
result in a healthier body until
we find ourselves in a health cri-
sis situation. We do cosmetic
patch and repair jobs that
improve our situation for a little
while or make things look better
on the outside, but tend to avoid
the heart of the matter, which is
a matter of the heart.
Sin is a lot like that. We might
notice that everything might not


be 100 percent, but when is it?
We will deal with it later. We
hope it will go away - and per-
haps for a while it does. The
trouble with sin is it's a lot like
my kidney infection. If left
untreated, it percolates inside
with very little visible on the out-
side. Then, when we aren't
expecting it, we are struck down
and incapacitated.
The good news for me is that
my situation is now under doc-
tor control. I'm healing, but the
road to recovery will be long.
Had I addressed the situation
earlier, the infection would never
have achieved the potency that it
did. The reality check is that I'm
going to have to do some things
to make sure my body becomes


healthier.
The same is true for many of
us. We need to take care of our-
selves and do good things for our-
selves. Let us not wait for warn-
ing pains before we act. With
good hearts and healthy bodies,
let us commit to make a differ-
ence in ourselves.
Let our pledge be: "I will pay
heed to the matters of my heart. I
will give my body the best care
and feeding I can. I will program
my mind with the most whole-
some thoughts. I will take time to
nourish my soul with good spiri-
tual food. I will call forth the best
in myself in all situations and I
will schedule regular appoint-
ments with Dr. God to help
ensure my best health."

Getting



past



denial!

By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
M. Scott Peck wrote: "Once
we truly know that life is difficult
- Once we truly understand
and accept it - then life is no
longer difficult."
Many times we make prob-
lems worse by not wanting to
even admit they exist. It seems
easier to simply avoid the prob-
lem, rather than face up to it and
deal with it. Ultimately, the
avoidance becomes more
painful than the original prob-
lem.
Ironically, the best way to
limit life's pain is to accept that
some pain is necessary. Accept
that life is full of problems, and
that it is through the pain of solv-
ing these problems that we learn
and grow.
Many people live in a con-
stant state of denial, afraid of the
pain it would cause to look their
situation straight in the eye. Yet,
as soon as you get .past that
denial, your situation has
already improved. You're able to
see the mistakes you've made in
the past and to learn from your
experience. You're able to clear-
ly evaluate your current situa-
tion, and construct a workable,
realistic plan for you life.
Realize that, though you are
responsible for your actions,
who you are is not defined by
what you have done. Everyone
makes mistakes. Detach yourself
from your problems, and then
look at them realistically, with
the goal of solving them.
Life is full of challenges. Have
the courage to look at them
clearly, and you will see that they
are all opportunities in disguise.
Today is full of opportunity.
Everywhere you go, everything
you do, every person you meet
gives you the potential to make a
difference - in your life, in the
lives of others, in your commu-
nity and in the world at large.
Welcome the challenges.
Look for opportunities, in every
situation, to learn and to grow.
Delight in the beauty that is
around you. Offer your sincere
kindness and caring to others.
This is the stuff of life.
You are fully alive and capa-
ble of making this day into what-
ever you want it to be. Though
you often cannot control the sit-
uations that come along, you
can always control the way you
deal with them.
Every moment is your oppor-
tunity to express the wonderful,
unique person that you are. Life
is not in the fondly-remembered
past. It is not in the hoped-for
future. It is here and now. What
you are now, is what you are.
Anything that may have previ-
ously held you back is now
behind you. Today is your gold-
en opportunity to fashion your
life into what you want it to be.
Take a deep breath, put a
smile on your face, and make it a
great day!

Inaugural Leadership

class comes to a close


HENDRY/GLADES - Lead-
ership Hendry and Glades
Counties (LHGC), Inc. is wrap-
ping a successful inaugural year
when the "Pioneer" Class grad-
uates on June 16, in Clewiston.
Twenty class members experi-
enced six day-long sessions
learning about the counties in
which they live and work.
Focus areas include judicial and
government, health and educa-
tion, environment and water,
agri-business, civic and cultural
and growth management. Over
70 presenters of local business
people participated in the pro-
gram sharing their knowledge
in their concentration with the
class.
The ceremonious evening
will be enhanced with keynote
speaker, Nancy Dale, Ph.D.
author of "Where the Swallow-
tail Kite Soars: The Legacies of
Glades County, Florida" and the
"Vanishing Wilderness" and
"Would Do, Could Do and
Made Do," both emphasizing
Florida's vanishing pioneer cul-
ture. She is currently working
on a third book continuing the
pioneer focus.
Nancy Dale began her career
as a television news
reporter/weather broadcast-
ing/producer/writer and talent
for radio/television from San
Francisco to Miami and at one
time hosted a "live" call-in
radio show in San Francisco
with guests on various topics.
Her broad career includes
documentary production and
articles in nationally distributed
publications. At home, she
grows organic vegetables and
has a backyard wildlife habitat.
She belongs to the Florida Cat-
tlemen's Association.


Now living in Sebring after
her home on Hutchinson's
Island was destroyed by hurri-
canes, she is living the rural
dream.
Emcee for the evening was
Mr. Dan Regelski, Director of
the Small Business Develop-
ment Center (SBDC) at Florida
Gulf Coast University (FGCU).
Mr. Regelski has over 20 yeas of
business experience in opera-
tions management and other
executive level responsibilities
for several major food coopera-
tive chain stores; mostly in the
Northeast. At FGCU Mr. Regels-
ki promotes entrepreneurship
by helping those who plan to
grow their business. His under-
graduate degree in Biology and
Chemistry and his M.B.A. in
Management from the Universi-
ty of New Hampshire, along
with his life experience gives
him the expertise to direct the
SBDC in Fort Myers.
Applications are now being
accepted for next year's pro-
gram beginning in October
2007 where LHGC will continue
the focus set this year. Tuition is
$500 to cover cost of trans-
portation, insurance and lunch-
es. The program consists of six
day-long sessions, one per
month, with emphasis on dif-
ferent subjects to provide a
learning experience to future
leaders and current leaders of
our communities on the coun-
ties in which they live and
work. If you would like more
information about the Leader-
ship Hendry & Glades Counties
you may call Janice Groves at
(863) 675-6007.


HRMC advocates I.C.E.


By Glenda Wilson, HRMC
If you were unconscious or
for some reason unable to talk,
you would want emergency per-
sonnel to be able to contact your
family or close friends on your
behalf. Now, with your help,
emergency crews can inform
your designated contacts of your
condition and gather medical
information about your health.


Emergency room nurses from
Hendry Regional Medical Center,
Alycia Mitchell and Jeanna
Davis, are encouraging you to
adopt the ICE cell phone con-
cept. ICE stands for "In Case of
Emergency." If you add an entry
in the contacts list in your cell
phone under ICE, with the name
and phone number of the per-
son that emergency services
should call, you can save them a


Submitted photo/Glenda Wilson
Adding an entry in your cell phone contacts list under I-C-E
with the name of the person designated as your emergency
contact could save emergency services personnel time in
contact loved ones or friends quickly "in case of emergency."


-'In Case of Emergency'


lot of time and have your loved
ones or friends contacted quick-
ly. It only takes a few moments
of your time.
Access the address book fea-
ture of your cell phone. Enter the
name ICE. Enter the phone num-
ber of a family member, friend,
healthcare provider, or employer.
Repeat the process using ICE1,
ICE2, ICE3 for any additional
contact names and numbers.
Remember that the person
whose name and number you
are providing should agree to be
your ICE partner. Your ICE part-
ner should be aware of any med-
ical conditions that could affect
your emergency treatment
(allergies, medications, etc.) If
you are under the age of 18, your
ICE partner should be an imme-
diate family member who would


be authorized to make decisions
on your behalf.
If you would like to identify
your cell as an ICE phone, stop by
the hospital emergency room
and pick up a cell phone
sticker/label. Paramedics and
other emergency personnel
know what ICE means, and they
look for it immediately. ICE your
cell phone now. For additional
information call Hendry Regional
Medical Center at (863) 983-9121.

Local teen wins 4-H



barbeque contest


HENDRY COUNTY - The
State 4-H Poultry Barbeque
Competition was held in Lake
Placid at Camp Cloverleaf on
June 2. Cyrus Mahani from
LaBelle took first place in the
competition. Cyrus had two and
a half hours to prepare and grill
two chicken halves, the best half
was presented to the judges.
The participants were judged
on the following: appearance and


cleanliness, starting the fire, con-
trolling the fire, preparing the
chicken for cooking, skill of barbe-
quing as well as sensory evalua-
tion. Once the chicken was
judged, the participants each
made a presentation which was
required to consist of, but not lim-
ited to, nutritional facts of chicken,
the broiler industry, as well as food
safety. The title of Cyrus' presenta-
tion was "Eat More Chicken."

Ball teams kept residents entertained


What did people do for enter-
tainment in the early years
around the lake?
A collection of writings by the
late Beryl Bowden holds some
clues. Mrs. Bowden wrote for
Clewiston News, and some of her
stories can be found at the
Clewiston Museum. This one
from December 1983, sheds
some light on what some resi-
dents did.
"The most common and
enthusiastic sport of these early
days was baseball. Almost every
small town had its own team and
there was both a Palm Beach
County League and a Lake Okee-
chobee League. At various times,
Clewiston was a member of each
but withdrew because other
towns failed to fulfill their sched-
ule and the Clewiston players
were left with no game on sched-
uled dates.
"The local teams called them-
selves by various names: Cane
Crew Cutters, Cane Breakers,
Cane Gang, etc. Players and fans
took the sport seriously and
many a player in the small towns
of South Florida was able to find a
good job in his chosen town,
because of his ability on the dia-
mond. The late Jack Baker, called
"Lefty," said he was recruited by
W.C. Owen for the first job he
held in Clewiston because the
town team needed a left-handed
pitcher. Similar stories were told
by Tom Conely, a young attorney
who was encouraged to establish
a practice in Okeechobee,
because he had played baseball
in college. He made the town a
fine attorney and representative
in the legislature, too.
"Jim Beardsley, Charlie Miner
and W.C. Owen were among
those who supported, promoted
and sometimes umpired for the
local team. Some of the players,
whose names may be recalled
now were Beder Nail, Dick
Hooks, Bill Hooks, Rutland Tom
Shelley, McClendon, Pete Wilson,
Hooky Avant, Theriot, Harris,


Rush, Jack Baker, Melvin Pape,
Frank Cothern, Elliot, Andrew
Beery, Bill Bolton, Barns, Peter-
son, Lowe, Jenkins, K.S. Alston,
M.H. Crouch and Chalker.
"There were no playgrounds
as such and the dream of a sports
and recreation area on the lake
beach died amid the projects to
provide water control. Still, water
sports remained popular. Boating
and swimming continued after
the beach was gone. People
swam in the lake and canal any-
way. When the Corps of Engi-
neers constructed a section of
"experimental levee" a short dis-
tance east of the city limits, a fine
swimming spot was created and
youths took advantage of it. For
health reasons, it was later desig-
nated off-limits to swimmers.
"The local American Legion
Post constructed a 20 by 30 foot
"wading pool" with a depth of 18
to 30 inches in the park opposite
the Catholic Church. It was very
popular with small children and
several actually learned to swim
there. It was removed after sever-
al years, probably for health rea-
sons. Now there are two public
pools; one in Clewiston and one

in Harlem and the.4 residential
areas also have rfany private
pools. Inter-'st in swTnmming as a
competitive sport soared with the
talents and work of a few youths,
notably Quite Massena and Steve
Bell, who won a number awards
in organized swim meets."
