Drivers chose to pay
parking tickets
instead of hotel rooms
By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON When viola-
tors think it's cheaper to pay a
ticket than follow the law, some-
thing has to be done.
That was the argument of
Clewiston's Chief of Police, Don
Gutshall and City Manager, Wen-


dell Johnson during Tuesday's
city commission meeting.
According to them, the city is
responding to a growing prob-
lem in Clewiston parking viola-
tions that .are inadequate in disci-
plining lawbreakers.
Chief Gutshall asked commis-
sioners to consider revising exist-
ing ordinances to increase the
amount of illegal parking fines.
Presently, violators caught by
the police are issued a $40 or $25
ticket for parking in a fire lane
or other parking violations. The


Chief Gutshall, along with Mr.
J6hnson said that an increase in
fees from $40 to $100 and $25
charges to $75.
The chief of police said it is
time for the commission to ad-
dress the issue.
"We needed to do something
about it soon," said Chief Guts-
hall "For many of the semi-truck
drivers it was cheaper to get an
illegal parking ticket than to pay
for a motel room."
The increase in fines are not
just for regular vehicles violating


Cooling off: Kids enjoy swimming pool

"Yahoooo" screamed this boy while jumping in the city swimming pool in Clewiston on
Tuesday.


"1-2-3, ready jump," these three little cousins were preparing to make a jump together.


the ordinance, but also for semi-
truck and trailers using parking
lots for overnight parking as
well.
With a lack of many parking
places for the hundreds of semi
trucks driving through U.S. 27,
some drivers pull in to parking
lots at local establishments.
"The officers have been work-
ing hard to clear out the violators
from the Wal-Mart And Save-A-
Lot parking lots," said Chief Gut-
shall "And I know that because
many of the semi-truck driver


have come in to the department
to make complaints about it."
After listening to the chief
of police and the city manager,
commissioners approved the
first reading of the ordinance.
The commission has set a pub-
lic hearing for July 16, inviting
comments from residents, and
will then make a final determi-
nation.

Future leaders



graduate


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A new lead-
ership program wrapped up
the year with a graduation this
past Saturday, June 16.
The program, which pre-
pares residents to be produc-
tive leaders of the community,
concluded its most recent pro-
gram by graduating 20 from
the six, day-long sessions. The
future leaders learned about
the counties in which they live
and work and focused on the
various branches of the govern-
ment, learned about health and
education issues and discussed
the en.ir-rinneti and other top-
ics.' *
According to Janice Groves,
with the Hendry County Eco-
nomic Development Council,
the Leadership Program in
Hendry and Glades counties
is a new, exciting program


designed to prepare potential
leaders to meet the challeng-
es facing Hendry and Glades
Counties and to provide current
leaders an exciting learning op-
portunity.
The program is handled
through the county's EDC, but
was started by a committee of
people who had taken part in
leadership programs in other
counties.
Coordinating the sessions
were Owen Luckey, Cour Cura-
tolo, Elizabeth Fountain, Vince
Cautero, Ron Hamel, Phillip
Keyes, Tristan Chapman and
Janice Groves.
According to Ms. Groves,
over 70 presenters made up of
local business people partici-
pated in the program, sharing
their knowledge with the class.
Organizers say that in this way,

'REAE business


training
CLEWISTON -The Small
Business Development Center
(SBDC) will hold a business
training class for the residents
of Clewiston in July.
"The REAL Road to Business
Success" will kick off on July 9.
The program is open to every-
one.
REAL stands for Rural En-
trepreneurship through Action
Learning. The 8-week course
is an interactive guide that will
take participants through im-
;portant and useful informa-
tion for anyone who has ever
thought of owning a business,
already owns a business, or that
may be curious how a business
works.
Classes will be held each
Monday night from 6 to 9 p.m.
Local SBDC representative Sean
Moore will be the program fa-
cilitator.
He wants everyone to know
this is not their grandpa's busi-
ness class.
"I promise this will be un-
like any class they have ever


planned
taken about business. Think of
it like the Karate Kid. He does
all those tasks and thinks he
is cleaning some guy's house,
and then all of a sudden he has
learned needed skills without
knowing it. We do games, activ-
ities, role reversal, and then all
of a sudden without realizing it,
you can do a spread sheet, tar-
get your market, or other skills
that you will use every day in
your business. It's a blast!" Mr.
Moore said.
Mr. Moore traveled to Chapel
Hill, N.C. to become a certified
instructor in the class in Febru-
ary. He is one of only seven cer-
tified facilitators in 'the state of
Florida.
The goal of the program is
to prepare graduates to open
a business as soon as they
feel they are ready, or to help
current business owners ex-
pand or sharpen their business
knowledge.
REAL will use guest speakers

This is what emergency crews found after receiving a call about an aircraft down at the Pa-
hokee Airport on Friday, June 16.


Engine 72 of the Palm Beach County Fire Rescue and Medical Services Unit 42 arrived on the
scene when a small, single-engine plane had to exact an emergency landing due to a blown
engine in flight, Friday, June 16. Luckily the pilot of the plane was able to make a safe but
hard landing and there were no injuries

A blown landing gear tire
was a result of an emergency
landing made by the pilot of
a small, single-engine plane.
The aircraft suffered a blown
engine mid-flight over Paho-
kee on Friday, June 16.

Airplane

engine

blows out
By Mark Carr
PAHOKEE On the morning
of June 16, Palm Beach County
Fire-Rescue's Engine 72 in Paho-
kee was dispatched to a report
of a "sick person" with someone
supposedly lying on the ground
beside an airplane at the Paho-
kee Airport. Engine 72 responded
along with AMR Ambulance's
Med-42 and found a very different
situation. Upon arrival of Engine
72, a Civil Air Patrol Cessna 182, a
small single-engine airplane, was
found situated in the grass just off
the end of the runway. Firefighters
made contact with the plane's pi-
lot and passengers who reported
that the engine had experienced a
critical engine failure during flight.
The aircraft had blown its engine
and parts and oil were spewed
from the plane forcing the pilot
to make an emergency landing.
Without power, the pilot was able
to coast the small plane into Pa-
hokee Airport with a rough land-
ing on Runway 17. The impact of
the landing blew the right tire and
the plane skidded off the runway.
Fortunately, there were no inju-
ries. When the young, shaken up
passengers were asked how they
were going to get back home,
they replied, "We don't know, but
we are not flying!"

Summer reading
Kara Sweeney from Florida Public Archaeology Network
was guest speaker for Clewiston Library Summer Reading
Program, on June 12. Kara spoke on Seminole Indian Leg-
ends and read from the book, 'Legends of the Seminoles',
as told by Betty Mae Jumper. The children enjoyed Ms.
Sweeney and wish to thank her for coming.


Dear Editor;
I want to extend my sincere
thanks to the many friends who
brought food, sent flowers and
cards in memory of Donald H.
Starks, Sr. He is sadly missed by
his family and all who knew and
loved him and had worked with
him at U.S.S.C.
Sincerely and thanks
from his wife Becky;
his sons, Donald, Charles,
Mike, Richard, Ronald and
daughters, Peggy and
Rhonda.

Judah just
doesn't get it
Dear Editor;
If the Lee County truly wants
to solve the problem of harmful
estuary releases, they need better
representation on the 10-county


coalition for responsible manage-
ment of Lake Okeechobee.
At the recent 10-County Co-
alition meeting, Ray Judah acted
like a robot programmed only to
say "Send the dirty water south,"
no matter what facts were pre-
sented.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers analyzed a "spillway" in the
dike around Lake Okeechobee
to move water south. The idea
was rejected because it signifi-
cantly reduced storage capacity
in the lake, which would result
in increased discharges to the
estuaries. It was further shown
that a spillway would completely
destroy CERP projects already
underway to clean up the Ever-
glades. Lake water is too high in
phosphorus to meet current stan-
dards going to the Everglades.
Ray Judah responded by
again, asking the Corps why they


couldn't send more water south.
Next, the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District gave a
detailed technical analysis on a
southern flow-way. Dr. Richard
Punnett who did the comprehen-
sive study and modeling of a flow-
way concept for CERP, explained
that while it sounded good in
concept, the regional system has
changed too drastically for a flow-
way to work today.
In layman's terms, during wet
years, the Water Conservation Ar-
eas and Everglades National Park
were already too wet and water
levels above regulation sched-
ule. No additional water could
be moved south during wet years
and during dry years, there would
be no water available. Taking wa-
ter from the existing system for a
flow-way during average to dry
years would worsen drought ef-
fects system wide. Rather than a


flow-way, experts agreed what is
needed and already underway is
more managed storage, particu-
larly north of Lake Okeechobee
where the water originates.
Ray Judah asked again why
they couldn't send more water
south. Rather Than help find a
true solution, Judah cannot see
past his obsession with flooding
sugar farmers. Thankfully, 8 of the
10 commissioners understood
the technical presentations and
did not endorse Judah's attempt
to force the flow-way that would
not work.
We need system-wide solu-
tions that are based on real sci-
ence, not on Judah's political sci-
ence.

Health Dept.


LABELLE As drought con-
ditions across the state continue,
the Hendry/Glades County Health
Department recommends resi-
dents remain calm if they notice
temporary changes in the color,
odor and taste of their well water.
While these changes may cause
water to taste or smell bad, they
typically do not affect human
health.
A drought is a period of unusu-
ally dry weather that persists long
enough to cause serious prob-
lems such as crop damage and/
or water supply shortages. About
90 percent of the state's drinking
water comes from groundwater,
of which approximately 20 per-
cent is from private wells. Many
businesses and homeowners rely
on potable wells and may expe-
rience problems with their water
quality and/or water supply dur-
ing this drought.
What can you do if your po-


ur


table well is affected?
Well dries up


If your well goes dry, con-
tact a local water well contractor
for assistance on how to resolve
the problem. There are several
options including: drilling a new
well, or lowering or replacing
your well pump or drop pipe.

Well water changes
You may detect changes in
the color, odor or taste of your
well water. This may be due to
increased levels of iron, sulfide
gas or salt. Higher concentrations
of these natural elements are less
desirable but these changes typi-
cally do not affect human health.
These substances can be
reduced or removed by using a
home water treatment system.

er or water treatment company

Are you certain? Do you need a doctor?


Sometimes it's obvious that'
you need to call a doctor pro-
fuse bleeding, chest pains and
other extreme symptoms make
that pretty clear. But there are oth-
er indications that people some-
times ignore and ignoring signs
of serious health problem can be
deadly. The Mayo Clinic recently
released a list of indications that a
person should immediately con-
sult a doctor.
Unexplained weight loss: A
high percentage of Americans are
overweight. So, it's not surprising
that many people don't consider
weight loss a cause for concern.
However, losing weight when you
are not dieting or increasing your
exercise routine may indicate a
health problem such as depres-
sion or even cancer.
Persistent fever: A low grade


A
Healthier
Life 1

with Katrina Elsken
fever might not seem like a big
problem, but a fever that lasts
more than a week should be
checked out. A fever can indicate
an infection somewhere in your
body.
Shortness of breath: Dif-
ficulty breathing can be due to
anxiety or panic attacks, or due
to asthma, heart problems or a
blood clot.
Unexplained change in


bowel movements: If you experi-
ence digestion changes, it can be
due to serious health problems
such as diabetes or colon can-
cer. If you have bloody diarrhea
or even mild diarrhea for more
than a week, consult your doctor.
Constipation can also indicate a
health problem. If constipation
lasts more than two weeks, the
Mayo Clinic recommends con-
sulting a doctor..
Mental health changes:
Changes in behavior, mood
swings or disorientation may indi-
cate infection, head injury, stroke,
low blood sugar or a medication
problem.
New or more severe head-
aches: Sudden and severe head-
aches may indicate stroke, blood
vessel inflammation or brain tu-
mor.


Loss of vision: Even tempo-
rary loss of vision can indicate
a serious problem. Any sudden
change in vision should be imme-
diately checked by a doctor.
Flashes of light: The sensa-
tion of flashing lights can indicate
the beginning of retinal detach-
ment.
Feeling full after eating very
little: Loss of appetite or feel-
ing full after eating just a small
amount may indicate serious gas-
trointestinal problems.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."


More FEMA funds will come to states


WASHINGTON, D.C. Un-
der legislation signed by Presi-
dent Bush, the U.S. Department
of Homeland Security's Federal
Emergency Management Agency
(FEMA) will deliver additional
federal disaster assistance to sup-
plement state -apd local recovery
efforts impacted by the 2005 hur-
ricane season. The bill allows for
additional funding to states spe-
cifically under the Agency's Pub-
lic Assistance and Other Needs
Assistance programs.
The increase in federal' as-
sistance is being made available
to Louisiana, Texas, Mississippi,
Florida and Alabama to cover
costs in connection with hur-
ricanes Katrina, Wilma, Dennis


and Rita.
"FEMA remains committed to
assisting in the recovery of these
states hardest hit by the hurri-
canes," said FEMA Administrator
David Paulison. "This supplemen-
tal funding provides the agency a
greater ability to continue to re-
duce the burden on the affected
communities."
The increased federal assis-
tance was authorized on May 25
when the President signed H.R.
2206, "U.S. Troop Readiness, Vet-
erans' Care, Katrina Recovery,
and Iraq Accountability Appropri-
ations Act of 2007" (Public Law
#110-28).
Under FEMAs Public Assis-
tance Program, the federal share


of eligible projects to rebuild
infrastructure and replace criti-
cal assets is set at a minimum
75 percent federal funding, with
state and local governments pro-
viding the additional 25 percent.
Following certain extreme situa-
tions Where state and local hard-
ships necessitate, the cost-share
has been amended to 90 percent
federal funding with a 10 percent
state and local match. This recent
provision requires the federal
government to cover 100 percent
for all eligible projects under the
Public Assistance Program for the
designated disasters.
FEMA is in the process of co-
ordinating the adjustment to each
project for all eligible disasters.


This will be a seamless process
for the impacted states, requiring
no additional work on their part.
For FEMA's Other Needs Assis-
tance program, under which ad-
ditional aid is provided to individ-
uals and households impacted by
disasters, the state is required, by
law, to provide 25 percent of the
costs. The recent legislation also
requires the federal government
to pay 100 percent of those costs
for these specific, disasters. FEMA
will be reimbursing eligible states
for the cost share of the program
already paid to FEMA and any
outstanding bills related to these
events will be canceled.


Mosquito population explosion predicted


TALLAHASSEE The drought
plaguing Florida has had one
benefit: a significant drop in the
mosquito population that is usu-
ally seen this time of year. But
Florida Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner Charles
Bronson is urging residents to pre-
pare for that to change. As soon
as the normal rain patterns return,
Florida is likely to see a mosquito
population explosion.
The lack of water has prevented
eggs from hatching. But mosquito
eggs from certain species can be
very resilient, lying in wait for the
next heavy rain for up to several
years. When the wet weather ar-
rives, all the eggs hatch at once,
creating a huge increase in the
number of pesky pests.
Mr. Bronson said people need
to keep that in mind and be ready
for a possible onslaught of mos-
quitoes and with them the poten-
tial for mosquito-borne illnesses.
The Commissioner is urg-
ing horse owners to make sure
that their animals are vaccinated
against two of the diseases -
West Nile Virus (WNV) and East-
ern Equine Encephalitis (EEE).
"So far there this year there
have been no reports of human
cases of mosquito-borne illnesses
in Florida and we've had five EEE
cases in horses compared with
a high of 207 cases in 2003," Mr.
Bronson said. "We haven't seen
any West Nile cases either and I
hope with proper protections we
can continue this trend."
In addition to WNV and EEE,
mosquitoes can transmit St. Louis
Encephalitis and malaria.
Floridians and visitors can pro-
tect themselves against mosquito
borne disease by taking common-
sense steps, including:
Limit time outside during

dusk and dawn when mosquitoes
are most active.
Wear long-sleeved shirts and
pants to cover skin and reduce the
chance of being bitten.
Eliminate standing water in
yards, such as in birdbaths, kiddie
pools, old tires and other recepta-
cles. Stagnant water is an excellent
breeding ground for mosquitoes.
Use insect repellent that con-
tains DEET, which is an effective
repellent.
Horse owners are also urged
to check with their veterinarian to
make sure that their animals have
received current vaccinations
against WNV and EEE, and that


these shots are kept up to date.
"Florida's mosquito control
districts have done a tremendous
job with ongoing monitoring of
mosquito populations and taking
action when necessary," Bron-
son said. "But ultimately, it is up
to people to take steps to protect
themselves and their animals from
mosquito-borne diseases."
Across Florida, there are 56
mosquito control districts that
routinely conduct proactive mos-
quito surveillance with specific
and effective research. They have
improved methods of controlling
mosquitoes, improved identifi-
cation of mosquito species that


transmit disease, established pro-
cedures for the early detection of
new mosquitoes, and researched
environmental factors that make,
mosquito disease outbreaks more
likely.
For more information on mos-
quito-borne diseases and pre-
vention, consumers can call the
Florida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services at 1-800-
HELP-FLA (435-7352), or visit the
department's web site at http://

tion on the subject also is avail-

SFWMD Board approves

services budget


WEST PALM BEACH The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) approved up to
$350 million over three years
for general engineering and
professional services as part
of a comprehensive package
to advance environmental and
capital improvement works.
The action streamlines the de-
livery of engineering services by
authorizing the District to use a
pool of pre-qualified companies
for dredging and bank stabiliza-
tion; surveying and mapping;
dam design and safety; full ser-
vice engineering; environmen-
tal engineering, planning and
permitting; water supply and
water resources; electrical and
mechanical engineering; model-
ing; construction management;
communications engineering
and civil structural engineering.
The District issued a request
for proposals in the 11 primary-
disciplines this past December,
receiving 367 proposals that met
its solicitation criteria. Follow-
ing an extensive evaluation, the
District recommended working
with 60 individual firms as prime
contractors for these services.
Over the next several months,
the District will enter into ne-
gotiations with the approved
companies, execute contracts
and begin issuing work orders
that will detail costs and specific
tasks for completion.
"The District is using the ex-
pertise and resources of the pri-
vate sector to improve efficiency,
streamline projects and ensure
continued momentum for proj-
ects like Everglades restoration,"
said SFWMD Procurement Di-
rector Frank Hayden. "The Dis-
trict used a fair, transparent and
consistent procedure, driven by
the law, to evaluate the expe-
rience, knowledge and man-
agement capabilities of all the


candidates. This award process
not only encourages an open
and competitive environment
among all qualified businesses,
large and small, but also ensures
that our communities and the
natural system benefit from our
investments sooner."
The District followed a solici-
tation process governed by the
State of Florida's Sunshine and
Procurement laws. Additionally,
Florida's Consultant's Competi-
tive Negotiations Act requires
that government agencies fol-
low specific procedures for an-
nouncing and procuring certain
professional services and evalu-
ating firms as qualified contrac-
tors. The Act also requires that
the agency negotiate a contract
with the most qualified firms at
fair, competitive and reasonable
compensation.
In one of the first solicitations
that included the SFWMD's new
Small Business Enterprise (SBE)
program, 168, or 54 percent, of
the 309 participating prime con-
tractors and their subcontrac-
tors are certified by the District
as SBE vendors. In addition, 19,
or 32 percent, of the 60 firms
selected for the 104 prime con-
tracts are SBE-certified compa-
nies; and 81, or 26 percent, of
the participating firms are re-
ceiving work from the District
for the first time.
The District launched its SBE
program last August to allow
more small businesses to par-
ticipate in District contracting.
Firms certified with the District's
SBE program also are added to a
directory that is viewed by other
government agencies and large
contractors in the region.
"The South Florida Water
Management District has taken
deliberate steps to ensure that
the contracts it awards reflect
the diversity of the communities
it serves," added Hayden.

Hoot busted in burrowing owl case


When Patricia Hoot-McLeod
had a construction worker de-
stroy an active Florida burrowing
owl nest to make way for a new
housing development in Cooper
City, she probably didn't real-
ize that an astute neighbor was
watching.
The man had noticed the nest
and a pint-sized Florida burrow-
ing owl standing at its entrance
on May 4. Three days later, the
nest. was gone. He reported the
violation to the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC).
Hoot-McLeod was working as
a consultant for PH Consulting
Inc., an environmental company
hired by the developer of the
Darlington Park sub-division to
provide guidance on the environ-
mental issues dealing with the
nest. She maintained a log from
April 25, to May 8, documenting
the dates she observed owls at
the nest. The last entry stated that
after 10 hours of rain on May 6,
the site was opened to check for
owls. Then she had a worker col-
lapse the nest.
Although the owls' breeding


season normally ranges from
Feb. 15, through July 10, state and
federal permits are required year-
round before an active or inactive
nest can be removed or destroyed.
Hoot-McLeod did not have such a
permit to destroy the nest.
"She had gotten a permit in
the past, so she knew it was re-
quired by law. The FWC will not
stand for such a blatant abuse of a
protected species and I commend
the person who reported it," said
FWC Major Brett Norton.
Hoot-McLeod, 48, of Fort Lau-
derdale, was charged with one
count of destroying a burrowing
owl nest, a second-degree misde-
meanor.
The Florida burrowing owl, a
small bird that digs its burrows in
open, treeless areas, is classified


as a species of special concern by
the FWC. This means burrows,
owls and their eggs are protected
from harassment and/or distur-
bance by state law. Burrowing
owls are protected by the federal
Migratory Bird Treaty Act, as well.
The owls use burrows year-
round for roosting during the
winter and for raising young dur-
ing the breeding season. Burrows
extend four to eight feet under-
ground.
The public can report wildlife
law violations to the FWC's Wild-
life Alert Hotline at (888) 404-
FWCC.

The Deterioration of the American principle


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we draw near the 231st
Birthday of our Nation we need
to take a long, hard look at our-
selves.
Our nation is being enveloped
by a cancer which is slowly but
surely ravaging its ideals and eat-
ing at its very vitals.
Today in America we have:
1. Policy without principle:
Because it has become neces-
sary for us to deal with godless
countries that have no scruples
concerning right and righteous-
ness, we often find ourselves dip-
ping our banners. We are guilty of


stooping to the level of some of
their infamous tactics in order to
accomplish our aims.
2. Wealth without work: We
are being enveloped by the false
philosophy that we can get some-
thing for nothing. The Bible says,
"The soul of the sluggard desireth
and hath nothing; but the soul
of the diligent shall be made fat
(Proverbs 13:4)".
3. Industry without influence:
America has been attempting to
buy her way and in many instanc-
es the countries she has helped
have turned against her and now
hold her in utter contempt.
4. Comfort without con-
science: Great multitudes, includ-


ing many so-called Christians, are
quick to enjoy their comforts at
the expense of others. They are
not willing to pay their way (taxes
to sustain) to the government,
nor are they willing to share the
burdens of carrying the Gospel of
Christ to the world.
5. Comprehension without
character: Men have grown in
knowledge with each succeed-
ing generation. Knowledge has
increased many-fold; but indiffer-
ence and immorality abound on
every hand.
6. Science without sagac-
ity: Science has advanced almost
beyond our understanding; yet


some of the greatest scientists
have missed the most important
thing of all God and .the wis-
dom only He can give. -
7. Service without sacrifice:
Such service is half-hearted and is
of little effect.
Take a look at the ten things
that make a pagan nation includ-
ing:
1. Death of religious fervor. 2.
The decay of family ties. 3. Inor-
dinate desire for luxury. 4. Cheap-
ness of human life. 5. Practice of
sex deviation and perversion. 6.
Development of pornography. 7.
Increase of drunken reveling. 8.
Tendency toward government by


When the chips are down, the buffalo is empty


personality and not by law. 9. Po-
litical promises by politicians. 10.
Corruption of the entertainment
media.
II Chronicles 7:14 says: "If my
people, which are called by my


name, shall humble themselves
and pray and seek my face and
turn from their wicked ways; then
will I hear from heaven and will
forgive their sin and will heal their
land."


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There's nothing like stepping
in a warm cow pie to realize that
some life expe-
riences really
stink. Super-size
it and you have
a buffalo chip
experience.
There's a sto- .
ry of a little bird
that got caught
in a freeze and Pastor
couldn't fly. He John Hicks
was about to
freeze to death on the ground
when a buffalo came by and
dropped a big pie right on him.
I don't know about you, but
I can relate to that experience.
Things are going rough and just
when I think things can't get any
worse plop! a big stinky one is
dropped on me.


I would like to say that God
makes life easy for all those who
love Him. But it simply is not true.
Life happens. And sometimes life
can be terribly, terribly difficult,
even for those who love Jesus.
Most of the time we take life
for granted and view it as a given.
And within life there are cow pie
and buffalo chip experiences. For
many it's not so much that we
"have life to live" as that "we have
to live life."
But let's get back to the little
bird. Covered with the steam-
ing buffalo chip up to his neck,
he began to warm up. Feeling a
lot better, the bird began to shift
around, and then burst out in
song. A passing fox happened to
hear him and plucked him out of
the pile.
The moral of this little tale is
that being dumped on isn't neces-
sarily a bad thing and being pulled
out of a situation isn't always the


best thing for us.
Sometimes we will go through
a difficult experience and it will
make us stronger. Often we'll have
a new appreciation for our family
and friends. More often than not,
we'll grow to rely on the promises
of God. Jesus has told us, "In this
world you will have trouble. But
take heart! I have overcome the
world." (John 16:33)
We cannot know all of God's
plan and purpose, but this we
can know: Life is hard, but God
is good, because life with God is
filled with promise, and in him
we have a friend who is able to
help us be more than conquerors
in life's situations. (Romans-8:37-
38)
So, what are we to do when
we step in life's cow pies or get
dumped on? We are to go on.
We are to do what we can do.
We pick up the pieces and go
forward the best we can, trusting


that God, family and friends will
help us. We take inventory and
realize anew the really important
things and people in our life and
embrace them. We turn to God
and trust in His providence.
I can relate well toG this anony-
mous quote: "I asked God for
strength that I might achieve; I
was made weak that I might learn
humbly to obey. I asked for health
that I might do great things; I was
given infirmity that I might do bet-
ter things. I asked for riches that
I might be happy; I was given
poverty that I might be wise. I
asked for all things that I might
enjoy life; I was given life that I
might enjoy all things. I got noth-
ing that I asked for but everything
I had hoped for. Despite myself,
my prayers were answered. I am,
among all people, most richly
blessed."
Be most richly blessed.


Keenagers host dinner and a movie for area churches


By Bobbi Brown

A poster on the door of the
fellowship hall of First Baptist
Church in Moore Haven read:
"Welcome! Since we're planning
to spend eternity together any-
way, shouldn't we get acquaint-
ed?" This was the beginning of a
really fun get-together for senior
groups from area churches. Dan
Currie asked the blessing, and
the evening began with a covered
dish dinner, at which guests were
instructed to sit at any table-ex-
cept one bearing the name of
the church that they attended, in
order to meet seniors from other
churches. Tables were decorated
with a "movie theme" featuring
popcorn in red and white con-
tainers, and a spring bouquet
containing the names of local
churches printed on movie film.
Each person was instructed to
learn two things about someone
at their table whom they did not
know and, as they won a door
prize, they were to reveal what
they had learned about their

surprised to learn that love bugs
make a noise, that two sets of sis-
ters were in attendance, and three
pastors attended!
Following the awarding of
door prizes, the group went into
the sanctuary to enjoy the movie


"Facing the Giants", a wonderful
Christian movie. Pastors of the
following churches were sent or
handed invitations including: Ma-
ple Grove Baptist, St. Joseph The
Worker, Lakeport Christian, New
Hope Baptist, First United Meth-

In addition to members of local
churches, the group welcomed
guests of Dan and Judy Currie
who are members of The Church
of Latter Day Saints.
If your church was left out,
please let Bobbi Brown know
with a correct address, so that
when we do this again, we will
be sure to invite the seniors from
your church.
Everyone agreed it was fun to
get to know our Christian broth-

another time of Christian fellow-

Keenagers would like to ex-
tend a thank you to those who at-
tended to make this an inspiring
evening. We hope those who did
not get the invitations will be able
to attend when we get together

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
It doesn't take much convinc-
ing to get parents to inoculate
their children i
against many
of the diseases
that can now
be prevented.
One of the or-
ganizations to
which I belong
has undertaken
a world-wide ef- Rev.
fort to eliminate Samuel S.
a childhood Thomas
disease, polio, that used to strike
fear into the hearts of parents and
children whenever it was men-
tioned. Today, nobody remem-
bers an "iron lung" or fears polio
quite like before. There are other
diseases that used to strike fear
in our hearts and are no longer a
threat and we have learned how
to provide ourselves with some-
thing within us to protect us from
the plagues that used to ruin lives
or kill not too long ago.
At first, people used common-
sense means for dealing with sick-
nesses not understood; stay away


from crowds or avoid mosquitoes
or wash up. Later, vaccines pro-
vided the means for carrying the
protection within us. The vaccine
goes with us wherever we go, we
are much safer and better pro-
tected.
There have been other efforts
to treat problems in communi-
ties by other kinds of "inocula-
tions" and programs to help our
younger citizens in dealing with
other kinds of "sicknesses" that
may assault them. We have be-
come more aware of the effects
of bullying and how it is related to
many of the tragedies that happen
in our schools and communities.
There is no injection to protect
our children against the cruelty of
others but there are other kinds
of "inoculations" available. One
is to teach children that they are
of special worth to their parents,
to their true friends and, finally,
to God. Another is to look at why
people do the things they do; in-
cluding those who do things that
are destructive or mean-spirited.
Many times, such acts reflect the
inadequacies and insecurities
of the aggressor; reflect some-
one who cannot compete on a
level playing field and must pick

poor circumstances in their own
lives and lashes out against forces
beyond their own control. When
a victim does not have the spiri-
tual or mental resources to cope;
when there is no inoculation
against unwarranted and unde-
served attacks, the damage to the
person accumulates.
I remember telling someone
who was being abused that it was
wrong to tolerate abuse, that they
did not have to tolerate it and that
they were a child of God with all
that it meant. As I made this last
point, I was asked if we could
spend more time talking about
just what it means to be a child of
God and I obliged. I recalled the
Lord telling the crowds when He
gave the Sermon on the Mount
that we are not to be anxious for
our lives and that God takes care
of the birds of the air and feeds
them, then asks "Are you not of
more value than they? (Matthew
6:26)." We considered that He
made us "a little lower than the
angels (Psalm 8:5)" and that we
have a place in God's plan.

stand our true nature; that we are
made in God's image, that we are
loved by God and His imprint on
us cannot be tarnished in spite of
efforts that try to make us believe
otherwise. Over time, a "spiritual
inoculation" was planted; with
it came courage. With courage
came the will to change things
and a new way of dealing with
the detractors that used to be a
problem but are no more.-One of
my colleagues used to say "God
don't make no junk" and she was
right.
Remembering that "God made
us" and all of what that means is
the beginning of an inoculation
that can bring booster shots to us
throughout all of our lives.

Backyard



Chickens
By MaryAnn Morris

Chickens and their eggs were an
important part of pioneer family's
diets. Hens lay most days, so eggs
were a readily available source of,
protein needing no refrigeration.
If you want to keep a few hens in
your backyard, you will have eggs
most days.
Keeping chickens isn't difficult.
When kept in dirty, crowded con-
ditions disease can be a problem
and that is normal with any animal
- and people, too.
Most feed stores have chicks for
sale from time to time when cer-
tain breeds are laying, according
to local chicken hobbyist, Richard
Spivey.
"Different breeds lay at differ-
ent times and then they'll stop
for awhile, like during the winter
when there isn't much light or
when the weather gets real warm
and they molt," he said. "Molting
means they lose their feathers and
grow new ones back."
So, just ask a local feed store
when their next shipment is.
Or, you may want to buy your
chickens "sexed," which will guar-
antee (as nearly as possible) that
you will have hens to give eggs
and not half roosters. Roosters are
male chickens and do not lay.
Online sources will sell you
baby chicks or fertile eggs for
hatching, if you have the equip-
ment.
Roosters or a rooster can be
kept, if you want to breed your
own replacement chickens, but
let's say you don't. Then you want
to buy "sexed" chickens. This
means the chickens you buy have
been verified as hens. Sexed chick-
ens cost more, but that is the price
of not having a rooster crowing on
bright, moon lit nights or slaugh-
tering unnecessary roosters! But
roosters can be beautiful and you
might want one for his decorative
value.
You can, of course eat any
"extras" and there are books and
online sources to explain how the
deed is done or you can ask some-
one with experience.
Baby chicks need to be warm
and clean, have food and above
all, water. Baby chicks will not
live long without those. Local feed
stores carry "starter" feed they
need for a very small price.
Before you bring them home,
decide where you will keep them.
It should be as predator-proof and
you can make it and big enough to
hold the growing chicks, their food
and water with room to spare. Li-
braries generally have books on
raising chickens or can get books
for you. One local backyard chick-
en gentleman who has a number
of small pens and coops, installed
electrified tape about six inches
off the ground around his chicken
"yard" and that keeps the bad guys
away from his flock. (Some people
will keep the tiny, baby chicks in-
doors if they arrive in chilly weath-
er in a large dog crate or even in
a stall shower lined with newspa-
per until they lose their down and
grow out feathers to keep warm.)
What do you feed them?
When grown, chickens are bet-
ter than pigs for eating anything.
Get a pretty bowl or container
of some sort, set it next to your
kitchen sink and throw all your
food scraps into it. Then feed these
scraps to the chickens. Empty the
container daily so as not to breed
germs. Dump the food scraps into
an old metal cake pan or the like
that you leave in the chicken run.
This way the scraps are kept off the
ground and droppings. You can
then easily dispose of any food that
the chickens didn't eat that was
left in the pan. You will find that
chickens hardly refuse anything.
It gives them food variety, too, and
you will feel like you are not wast-
ing food but recycling it. Chickens
are the ultimate omnivores. They
love fresh grass clippings; be sure
to put your garden clippings into
the chicken pen if they don't run
loose during the day, called "free
range".
At about six months, you can
feed them laying pellets. By feed-
ing pellets it's simple to keep track
of how much they are eating with-
out waste.
"A six or seven pound full-
grown hen will only eat a four
ounce can (like a little Vienna sau-
sage can, of pellets a day. If they
don't eat all of that in a day, I'll skip
feed for a day and feed them again
the day after," said Mr. Spivey.
Some day, when they are
grown, if they free-range, you may
come across one or more of your
chickens lying -in the dirt, looking


rather, well dead. They are quite
alive. They are bathing, chicken
style. Chickens love to take dust
baths to lie and fluff around in
dust, which helps keep bugs out
of their feathers. It is a shock to
see them lying there dirty and di-
sheveled if you don't know what
they are doing! Chickens can be let
loose in the vegetable garden for
an hour or so where they will hap-
pily eat any bugs. Theywill scratch,
so keep them out of newly seeded
and planted gardens!

Chickens make surprisingly wonderful pets. Young Charlotte
carries her beloved pet hen around with her.

Growing chicks can live outdoors in an unused garden shed with a homemade nest box made
using an old milk crate lined with hay for warmth.

Community Profile: Cleveland E. Robinson, II


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE Cleveland Rob-
inson, who is currently the Eco-
nomic and Community Develop-
ment coordinator for the City of
Pahokee, has lived in the city for
about a year.
Mr. Robinson is a 2005 gradu-
ate from Fisk University, where he
received his bachelor's degree in
religion and philosophy who re-
located from Miami last year. He
said his work experience and ed-
ucation has helped him succeed
in the Glades area.
Question: Aside fromwork-
ing with the City of Pahokee,


PB notes


Clean


Beaches


Week
PALM BEACH COUNTY -
National Clean Beaches Week
(NCBW), which will be held on
June 29-July 5, is a national cel-
ebration focusing public attention
on the role of sustainable beach-
es in American life. Promoted by
the Clean Beaches Council, four
themes of importance to beach-
goers are highlighted during the
week: a healthy environment,
sustainable travel, clean recre-
ation and fitness, and healthy
food choices. In an effort to call
attention to the importance of
healthy beaches in Palm Beach
County, Keep Palm Beach County
Beautiful, Inc. (KPBCB) encour-
ages volunteers to go out to their
local beaches after the July 4th
holiday to help clean up after a
busy holiday.
"Many families will be at their
local beach celebrating through-
out the day during the July 4,
holiday," says Lourdes Ferris,
Executive Director of KPBCB.
"Although we highly encourage
individual responsibility and we
ask that people leave the beach
cleaner than when they came,
the reality is that the majority of
litter on our beaches and water-
ways comes from human activity.
Because citizens are attracted to
the beaches for their celebrations,
the litter problem is compounded
during holidays like July Fourth.
We would welcome people who
want to take a little time after the
holiday to bring a trash bag to the
beach to pick up litter, or if you're
a boater to do the same while
you're out on the water."


Does your


A/C need a


tune-up?

With summertime around the
corner, your A/C system will likely
need to work overtime to cool
your home. And because the en-
ergy to run your A/C accounts for
more than 50 percent of an elec-
tric bill the hot summer months,
it's important to make sure your
system is running as efficiently as
possible-before the season hits.
According to FPL, the most
basic and necessary step for any
homeowner is to clean or replace
the air conditioner's filter every
month, which will increase the
system's efficiency and trim cool-
ing costs. If your air conditioning
system is 10 years or older, howev-
er, chances are it is inefficient and
nearing the end of its useful life.
FPL recommends using the fol-
lowing checklist to assess the con-
dition of your existing system and
decide whether it is time to repair
or replace your unit:
Does your system undergo
frequent repairs?
Has your system experienced
a major component failure?
Are you continually receiving
higher than anticipated electric
bills?
Is your air conditioning unit
not cooling like it used to?
If you answered yes to any of
these questions and your system
is 10 years old or older, it might
be time for replacement. In fact, in
most cases, it is more cost-effec-
tive in the long run to replace the
entire system than just one part.


Additional benefits of replace-
ment include increased efficiency
and improved indoor air quality.
FPL will help pay for a new,
more efficient unit through its
A/C incentive program, for quali-
fying customers who purchase
a high efficiency cooling system
through an FPL approved inde-
pendent contractor. To determine
if it's time to repair or replace your
system, find a list of approved FPL
independent contractors and cal-
culate potential savings visit www.
FPL.com/residential/savings.


are there other activities that
you are involved in?
Mr. Robinson: I do work for
Brother James Group, Inc. What
the group does is hold workshops
and consulting sessions in teach-
ing people self-empowerment
and community relations. I like
to talk to people about what I'm
good at, which is helping to see
people and communities grow.
Question: What is your
greatest accomplishment to
date in Pahokee?
Mr. Robinson: I would like to
say it has to be assisting with the
improvement of the city's im-
age as far as quality assurance,
outreach, community trust and


community-to-government rela-
. tions. My favorite hosting activity
was the Hispanic business social
because it acknowledged diver-
sity in Pahokee. I was happy that
15 to 20 business owners and
civic leaders came out and sup-
ported the event, which was the
third Thursday in May. The social
is scheduled to take place every
third Thursday of the month.
Question: Where do you
see Pahokee five years from
now?
Mr. Robinson: No doubt in my
mind, I see Pahokee as a stand-
out community because we have
a lot of potential for growth and
we are growing.


we have made a few changes:

Question: How has your
job helped you character-
wise?
Mr. Robinson: It has made me
become as disciplined as pos-
sible. It made me understand the
meaning of perseverance in all
aspects of life.
Question: What are your
summer plans?
Mr. Robinson: I don't know
yet. I'm just here, day-to-day, fo-
cusing on my work. This isn't col-
lege anymore, so no more sum-
mer break.
Question: What do you like
to do for fun?
Mr. Robinson: I like to travel
to places such as Nashville, Tenn.

In the table below, you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations. To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions:
Maximum Contaminant Level or MCL: The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible
using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum Contaminant Level Goal or MCLG: The level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected riskto health. MCLGs
allow for a margin of safety.
Action Level (AL): The concentration of a contaminant that, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL: The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a
disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MROLG: The level of a ddnklng water disinfectant below which there Is no known or expected risk to health.
MROLGs to not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
"ND" means not detected and Indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter (mg/I) one part by weight of analyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
Parts per billion (ppb) or Micrograms per liter (pg/1) one part by weight of analyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
Picocune per liter (pCVL) measure of the radioactivity in water.
In 2004, a source water assessment was conducted for our water system. The assessment found no potential sources of contamination near the
wells. Source water assessments are posted at http://www.dep.state.fl.us/swapp/.

Lakeport Water Association failed to collect a second round of Lead and Copper samples In 2006, resulting In a monitoring violation. The monitor-
ing violation was resolved through a Consent Order with the Department of Environmental Protection. Lead and Copper results for 2007 have been sat-
Isfactory and will be reported on next years CCR.
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) Include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over
the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring minerals and, In some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances
resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present In source water Include:
(A) Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock opera-
tions, and wildlife.
(B) Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, Industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
(C) Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
(D) Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of Industrial processes and petroleum pro-
duction, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations, which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by pub-
lic water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants In bottled water, which must provide the same pro-
tection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contami-
nants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by
calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791.
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with
cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly,
and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guide-
lines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptospordium and other microbiological contaminants are available from the Safe Drinking
Water Hotline (800-426-4791).

Clewiston had a golf course


In the pioneer days, there
was plenty to do around Lake
Okeechobee. The Clewis-
ton Museum has a collec-
tion of the writings of Beryl
Bowden.
Mrs. Bowden wrote for
Clewiston News for many
years. The following story,
transcribed by MaryAnn Mor-
ris, was written about social
activities in Clewiston.
"As the town first devel-
oped and Civic Center Park
was planted in grass, two
practice holes for golfers were
built. Later, three more were
provided, permitting a little
playing while the real course
was being constructed. The
golf course was part of archi-
tect John Nolen's plans for
Clewiston.
"An 18-hole course was
designed by Stiles ai:d Van
Kleeck, a St. Petersburg firm
and nine holes were con-
structed at one time. Many
golfers were attracted to the
town by the excellent, if small,
course. The course opened
for play on Sunday, Febru-
ary 23, 1929, for a fifty-cent
daily fee, or for two dollars
per month, the whole family
could play.
"Gene Sarazen played it a
number of times. His score
of 32 for the nine holes was
a course record, for many
years, though Gene Goghill,
the local pro, equaled the

score later.
"When the Clewiston
News building was con-
structed, the south wall of the
building was used for hand-
ball, since a concrete court
was built adjoining at the
same time.
"An outdoor basketball
court was constructed for the
local school. For a time there
were a few town basketball
teams in the area also. Lo-
cal folks and the P.T.A. raised
money to support them.
"Football appeared in the
1930's when Clewiston High
School Principal Richard W,
Turk introduced six-man foot-
ball and served as coach.
"An outdoor bowling alley
on Central Avenue was popu-
lar for a few years. Later, in-
door alleys were provided in
the building which later be-
came Jaycee Hall and is now
shared by the Senior Citizen
group.
"Clewiston's first skat-
ing rink was built and oper-


ated by the Bembry brothers,
Leon and Gordon, agile and
graceful skaters themselves.
The building has a fine maple
floor and the sport was very
popular. The building has
undergone transformations
as a grocery, then a furniture
store. Its final renovation? A
police and fire station for the
city.
The present rink at the
eastern edge of the city was
built later and is still an enjoy-
able and popular spot.
"Tennis was the earliest
sport for which any facili-
ties were provided. The first
court was constructed on the
lakeside grounds of the old
Clewiston Inn. Later, through
the leadership of the Kiwanis
Club, A community effort
provided two paved concrete
courts in the park immediately
north of the Present Clewiston
Inn. They are there, repaired,
rebuilt and lighted, are still in
use, as are a number of new
concrete courts in Civic Cen-
ter Park. Tennis has remained
a very popular sport.
"In recent years, rodeos
have become popular, but in
the early days local riders on
local horses provided plenty
of excitement with Sunday
afternoon horse races at the
Fort Thompson track attract-
ed huge crowds."

Lewis and Clark exhibit visits



Clewiston library in mid June


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Clew-
iston Library was recently
learned that they have been
selected to receive a.very spe-
cial exhibit.
The exhibit is the "Lewis
and Clark and the Indian
Country" traveling exhibit by
the National Endowment for
the Humanities.
According to Barbara Oef-
fner, Director of the Clewiston
Library, the Clewiston library
Was one of twenty-three pub-
lic, academic, and tribal li-
braries in the country chosen


to host this important exhibit.
"I was delighted to learn
about it" said Mrs. Oeffner
"We very interested in the
Lewis and Clark journey" she,
explained because the water
played such a major role in
their exploration.
"We believe that this ex-
hibition will showcase the
meaningful interrelationship
that the Native Americans
and Corps of Discovery en-
joyed in 1804," Mrs. Oeffner,
continued.
The library will be notified
in mid-June when they will
get the exhibit she said.


The showcase, which will
be at the library for six weeks,
be also shipped to the library,
free of charge. The library will
receive a $1,000 grant, 2,000
brochures, 25 posters and
two banners to publicize the
six programs that will be pre-
sented on various aspects of
the exploration.
'As part of being the Proj-
ect Coordinator, I will be at-
tending the planning work-
shop at the Newberry Library
in Chicago on Sept. 7," added
Mrs. Oeffner.

Hurricane preparedness
On Tuesday May 29, Emergency Management Director Lupe Taylor and Planning
Technician Brenda Barnes traveled to Port Charlotte to meet with Congressman
Tim Mahoney. The meeting was held at the Port Charlotte County Administra-
tion Building in Port Charlotte. Congressman Tim Mahoney discussed FEMA &
Hurricane Preparedness with EM Directors & County Administrators from Hen-
dry, Charlotte and Highland Counties. Congressman Tim Mahoney listened with
concern and asked questions as each county discussed their preparedness
plans and most importantly their needs and challenges within the county.

event and Melissa Libby (Fort My-
ers) taking second place. Macie
Tendrich, of Boynton Beach, was
the third place winner.
Tim Allen, a volunteer with
the CCTA, says that the tennis
program in Clewiston is growing
every week.


"I've been involved with a lot
of organizations over the years,
but the United States Tennis Asso-
ciation has to be one of the most
organized and efficient groups I
have encountered," he said add-
ing, "Every penny of money raised
by this group goes back into pro-
moting and developing tennis in
local communities. I hope that
everyone' who has an interest in
tennis or in promoting healthy ac-
tivities for kids and adults in our
community will get involved with
our programs."
To get involved, drop in to the
CCTAs "open" tennis clinic each
Monday evening from 6-8 p.m.
this summer at the tennis courts
on Royal Palm Avenue.
The fun, game-based clinic
is open to all kids and adults. A
similar program is being planned
for the Harlem community if the


interest level is high enough. Call
Tim Allen at (863) 599-2595 for
registration information.
Formal tennis instruction is
also available' from Kathy Irey,
a local certified USPTA teaching
professional. She is organizing an
adult women's group for July and
August. Contact her at (863) 233-
9098 for more information.
In other news, four youths
from Clewiston are participating
in the University of Florida Gator
Tennis Camp this summer: Taylor
Beatty, Sarah Espinoza, Anessa
Leyva, and Melanie Allen. These
girls received scholarships from
the United States Tennis Associa-
tion (USTA)-Florida to help young
players in our community im-
prove their game for competitive
high school play in future years.
Also, the CCTA and the City of
Clewiston has received a match-


ing grant from the USTA-Florida
to improve the grounds around
the tennis courts on Royal Palm
Avenue with additional seating for
spectators. The plans have been
approved and groundbreaking
should begin soon.
The Clewiston Community
Tennis Association is a non-profit,
charitable organization (I.R.S.
501(c) 3) with a mission of pro-
moting tennis as a recreational
sport in our community. The
CCTA is supported by generous
contributions from First Bank
of Clewiston, Seacoast National
Bank, Glades Area McDonald's
Restaurants, Sugar Realty, Ever-
glades Federal Credit Union, Olde
Cypress Community Bank, Howell
Oil Company, Johnson-Prewitt &
Associates, and the United States
Tennis Association. Additional
sponsors are certainly welcome!
