Sheriff urges reconsideration


County tells top cop
they have no money

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Sheriff Ron-
nie Lee made one final plea to
Hendry County commissioners
on Tuesday to reconsider fund-
ing an increase to the law en-
forcement budget.
Under tighter state property
tax reform restrictions, commis-
sioners noted the request, but
said that an increase under such
circumstances is highly unlikely.


The short discussion was
characterized by quick, sharp re-
marks on the part of the sheriff
and one of the commissioners.
The sheriff, standing at the po-
dium addressing the three com-
missioners Chairman Kevin
McCarthy and Commissioner Bo
Pelham were absent asked the
board to consider a-"gentleman's
agreement" to provide additional
funding later in the year if his re-
quest for a budget increase was
denied.
"The reason we didn't give
you money is because we don't
have it," Commissioner W.T.


"Bill" Maddox.
One of the first priorities of a
county is funding law enforce-
ment and EMS, said Sheriff Lee.
"I had nothing to do with Gov-
ernor (Charlie) Crist," the sheriff
said, referring to the property tax
issue that forced the county to
look at cutting costs this year.
The county has a few more
weeks to make a final determina-
tion, when the secondhand final
reading of the proposed budget
is scheduled to be approved on
Sept. 25 in LaBelle.
According to officials, the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office,-


with its larger number of.staff
and supervisory duties over the
jail, makes up the majority of the
budget from year to year.
Recently, the sheriff has ar-
gued for more funding for jail ex-
pansion, with his staff at the jail
reporting a continuing increase
in the number of inmates. The
situation has gotten worsened
to the point that inmates sleep
on portable beds on the floors
and in the walk areas of the large
cells.
While officials say that the
sheriff's office budget has tra-
ditionally seen an .increase, this


Remembering 9/11: Clewiston High School honors local heroes


INI/Jose Zaragoza
Members of the Clewiston Police Department, the Clewiston Fire Department and Hendry County EMS were recog-
nized during a 9/11 ceremony held at the Clewiston High School auditorium. The appreciation ceremony, presented
by Criminal Justice Operations and the school, served as a quiet tribute to the anniversary of the World Trade
Center attacks.


"If Sept. 11 did nothing else, it brought together not only a community, but a nation," said City Commissioner
Jimmy Pittman. The commissioner spoke during the appreciation ceremony held on Tuesday.


year was different, in large part
because of the state's actions in
providing tax relief to homeown-
ers. Less taxes means less money
to provide services, officials said.
Most county departments will
see at least a 20 percent reduc-
tion in operating expenses.
The sheriff's office saw a
one percent increase in its bud-
get, which works out to roughly
$8.000 more per month this year
from the last.
"\ith gas, insurance, it's gon-
na be tough," said Sheriff Lee.

burglaries

Five burglaries all
happened on Taft
street in Flaghole

By Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
Law enforcement officials
investigating a rash of burglar-
ies in Flaghole got a break in the
case when one of the suspected
thieves"bragged about his crime
on MySpace.
With pictures to confirm the
connection, the suspects were un-
able to deny their involvement.
One of the suspects also re-
portedly went to school wearing
clothing that he W'as later accused
of stealing.
The burglaries were concen-
trated on three days, Aug. 2, 3 and
6 and all were on Taft Street.
Four homes were burglarized,
with the suspects stealing with
many thousands of dollars in
property and jewelry. The single
largest item taken was a 2002
Ford Focus that the suspects later'
totaled in a Montura canal just
three days after the insurance had
Srun out on the car.
They also reportedly took a
laptop computer, two digital cam-
eras, and even broke a three-year-
old's piggy bank to make away
with the loose change.
The burglars' streak came to
an end when they came face to
face with a gun that one of the
homes' occupants had prepared
after she heard them come in
through a bedroom window. The
information led investigators to
two juveniles law enforcement
believes were responsible.
A cellular phone inside the car
was traced back to the parents of
one'of the juvenile suspects.
When confronted by the evi-
dence, one of the juveniles alleg-
edly confessed, but investigators
had to work harder to find enough

or marked


At the dry end of the Pearce Ca-
nal inside Lake Okeechobee near
Buckhead Ridge in Glades County,
according to South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
a number of poles stood sentry
over the otherwise bare lake bot-
tom waiting for water to return
to the enormous lake. At normal
lake levels, the tops of these poles
are just barely visible above the
water in this popular fishing spot.
During high water, they cannot be
seen at all.
The poles stood until con-
tractors hired by SFWMD, using
heavy-duty chain saws last week
removed them at the lake bot-
tom, preventing the poles from
becoming an unseen hazard to
boaters who will return to fish the
area again once the water comes
back.

number of individuals includ-
ing concerned citizens, county

ers, agency staff and interested
groups, a list and map of poten-

Workers spent many hours in
Lake Okeechobee during the past
month marking potential naviga-

exposed as the lake's waters

heavy equipment, pipes, poles,

is so heavy and so firmly rooted
into the lake's bottom near the


boaters of the potential hazards.
Other, more natural, features
of the lake that will remain have
not been marked. Many places
within the lake bottom are natu-
rally rocky. Local boaters and
businesses know the areas well
and do their best to warn visitors
where they should be wary. An
especially large rock field lurks
just off the lakeside approach af-
ter leaving the navigation lock at
Henry Creek and another is just
past the mouth of the Kissimmee
River.
Even at normal levels, Lake
Okeechobee is a shallow lake,
with an average depth of only nine
feet. Wind whipping across the
vast expanse of water can cause
large waves on the lake, which
can go from calm to treacherous
very quickly. Boaters are always
urged to leave a navigation plan
with someone when venturing
out on the lake. The plan should
include an estimated time of re-
turn and a general idea of the
boater's destination. Navigation
on Lake Okeechobee should be
safer due to these low lake level
hazard removal efforts.


Lake Okeechobee water levels remain low


Regional water
shortages predicted
to continue in 2008

WEST PALM BEACH The
water level in Lake Okeechobee
was 9.58 feet above sea level on
Sept. 10, 0.86 feet (a little over
10 inches) below the previous
historic low for this date of 10.44
feet above sea level, recorded on
Sept.10, 1956. According to water
managers at the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD), the growing disparity
between current lake level read-
ings and previous historic lows
suggests that South Florida may
experience back-to-back water
shortage years for the first time
since the early 1980s.
Lake Okeechobee water levels
have set new record daily lows
since early June, culminating in
an all-time record low of 8.82 feet
above sea level on July 3, 2007. A
year ago today, ;the lake'swater.
ie' el was 13.26 feet above sea lev-
el, 3.68 feet higher than this morn-
ing's reading, leading up to one of
the most severe water shortages
in South Florida history.
Despite near average rainfall


for June and July, August 2007
was the driest August since 1,987
and ranks as the fourth driest
on record since 1932, yielding
District-wide rainfall of only 4.67
inches, or 62 percent of the his-
torical average for the month. At
only 30 inches, or 79 percent of
the historical average through
Friday, September 7, year-to-date
average rainfall also remains well
below normal for the 16-county
region. Historically low water lev-
els persist in central and northern
portions of the District, as rainfall
patterns have continued to favor
southeastern residential areas.
"Without the sort of rainfall
only associated with slow-moving
tropical depressions, water levels
in Lake Okeechobee are likely to
remain below previous record
lows through at least September,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Because the
lake is such a reliable indicator of
the regional water supply, these
readings, suggest South Florida
could be ,headed for another seo
,vere water shortage year. With
no guarantees of above average
rainfall to replenish the system,
we must begin to contemplate
and prepare for another regional


water shortage during the next.
dry season."
The largest water body in
South Florida's water manage-
ment system, Lake Okeechobee
is a primary backup water supply
to five million South Floridians
and provides water for irrigation
across more than. 500,000 acres
of farmland south of the lake. By
stirring up sediments and concen-
trating harmful nutrients, back to
back active hurricane seasons
followed by an extended water
shortage have affected both the
quantity and quality of water in
the lake over the past three years.
Water managers took advantage
of the drought this year by remov-
ing nearly two million cubic yards
of exposed phosphorus-laden
muck from the lake. The muck
removal will help restore habitat
and improve future water quality
by reducing phosphorus levels in
the lake, which last year averaged
200 parts per billion.
The official Lake Okeechobee
water elevation is reported each
day by the "J.S. Army CoIps of
Engineers as the average of four
state-of-the-art monitoring sta-
tions located within the lake ba-
sin. The South Florida dry season


usually begins in November and
continues through May, with lake
levels normally rising during the
wet season and falling during the
dry season.
Water restrictions
still in effect
Extreme water shortage con-
ditions persist in the Everglades
Agricultural Area and in portions
of Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
Martin and western Palm Beach
counties, which remain in full
Phase III water restrictions. Due to
below average rainfall and subse-
quent low groundwater levels in
the District's Lower West Coast,
full Phase II restrictions remain in
place for Lee and portions of Col-
lier, Hendry, Glades and Charlotte
counties. Landscape irrigation in
St. Lucie, Martin, eastern Palm
Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties remains
limited to two days per week in
most areas.
The SFWMD continues to en-
courage bolh residential and 'ag-
ricultural water users throughout
the District to voluntarily reduce
water consumption and conserve
water.


Water Reuse Week celebrated in Palm Beach


WEST PALM BEACH In col-
laboration with Florida Governor
Charlie Crist, the South Florida
Water Management District (SF-
WMD) proclaimed Sept. 9-15 Wa-
ter Reuse Week in South Florida.
Water reuse is an key part of
the District's water conservation
program and a vital alternative
source of water for the State of
Florida. Currently, Florida leads
the nation by reusing 660 mil-
lion gallons of reclaimed water
each day to conserve freshwater
supplies and replenish our rivers,
streams, lakes and aquifers, ac-
cording to the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection.
To assist entities in implement-
ing water reuse, the District and
the State of Florida invested $24.6
million over the past two years
to fund 71 water reuse projects

Since the program's inception in

Water reuse is the beneficial
use of highly treated domestic
wastewater, also known as re-

can be used in many ways, in-
cluding irrigation of yards, agri-
culture, golf. courses and other
green space; ground water re-

cooling water and process water.
Reuse conserves water by reduc-
ing reliance on ground water,
surface water and potable water.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it
anytime at the Clewiston issues forum at http://www.newsza-
pforums.com/forum52. It is a hometown forum so visit the
page as often as you would like and share your comments
(but no personal attacks or profanities, please). You can also
make a comment by calling our Speak Out 24-hour opinion
line at (863) 983-9140. Comments will be published in the
newspaper as space permits.
TELL FPL "NO": Email the Public Service Commission: Tell them
we don't want to be charged because FPL did not get their proposed
power plant approved. We don't get paid when FPL makes a profit,
why should we pay when they don't? They are a private company, why
should you the customer be on the hook for a proposed building that
didn't get done? If they get their way, the public service commission
will pass on this and allow them to force the charges for this folly on
YOU the consumer. So it works out that they don't lose for being fool,
and you get to pay for them to learn on the job apparently. If I ran a
company and I wanted to expand but then got told "No you can't have
the permits for that," I wouldn't be allowed to bill you the customer for
the money I paid the building company to get plans drawn up, I would
just be out of luck.

POSTING SPEAK OUT: Speak Out: Someone told me that we
can post opinion comments online. How do we do that? Do you print
those calls in Speak Out? Editor's note: go to www.newszap.com and
click on Clewiston, then on Local Public Issues Forum. The forum has
no limits on the length of the comments or the number of comments.
Some representative calls from the forums may be printed in Speak

SCREENING FOR LEARNING DISORDERS: Know the signs: A
screening should be done for Dyslexia and Attention Deficit, Hyperac-
tivity Disorder if there are at least three warning signs you see with
your child:
*Terrible spelling;
*Slow or inaccurate reading;
*Writes some letters or numbers backward;
*Difficulty memorizing multiplication tables;
*Trouble telling time on a clock with hands;
*Unusual pencil grip and letter formation;
*Difficulty learning to tie shoes;
*Written expression far below verbal skills;
Extremely messy desk and bedroom;
*Can't sound out unknown words;
Confuses left and right, letters b and d;
*Skips or misreads prepositions and suffixes;
*Dreads going to school.
If you child has three or more of these warning signs, talk to your
child's pediatrician about having him or her screened. Early diagnosis
is important to helping the child cope with these problems.


Letters to the Editor


Yakety-yaking
in Hendry
You would think after 58 years
of having fooled a high school
sweetheart, I would be smart
enough to leave well enough
alone? Well, much to my chagrin,
I was so startled by reading of a
scientific discovery the other day
that I just had to share it with my
enduring bride. No it wasn't the,
reinventing of the wheel, or that
they have found a substitute for
fire.
It was the conclusion of a
five year study in which they re-
searched differences between
men and women. In this case, the
age old perception that women
talk more than men. Going into
the study, the perception was
that women out talked men by a
meaningful ratio of two or three
to one. However, to date, that as-
sumption has found that there is
no appreciable difference. Wom-
en used 16,215 words a day, and
men, 15,669.
Now, in as of itself, that state-
ment to my wife would have
probably gotten just a "So what",
but I was so shocked that I said
that the study must be flawed. I
cited examples of the non-stop
chatter that takes place every time
my wife is with her sisters and my
wife immediately reminded me
of my hard earned reputation for
non-stop story telling.
Again, I felt that I must defend
the male image of the strong si-
lent type, epitomized by John
Wayne and Clint Eastwood and
in my best "Dirty Harry" mode,
intimated that it.was a carry over
from her girlhood pajama parties


and sleep-overs. When she didn't
buy into that analogy, I reminded
her of all the times she has said,
"Y6u never talk to me", and had
she ever heard me complain
about the opposite?
Now don't take me wrong. I
think it's great that women crave
talk and I understand that silence
offends them. They take silence
as an opportunity, not a sign of
preference. Over the years, as it
pertains to all things feminine and
about family and friends, my wife,
typically can talk the ears off a
brass monkey. Once motivated, it
is hard not to be awed by her abil-
ity to remember every little detail,
particularly if it involves one of the
one or two mistakes or miscues
I have inadvertently committed.
But let's be serious. I'm still not
*convinced that this study is not
flawed and can only wait until it
comes out in paper back.
In the meantime, regarding in-
cessant chatter, I'm reminded of a
story about five country churches
in a small Indiana town. A Presby-
terian, the Baptist church, a Meth-
odist church, the Catholic church
and a Jewish synagogue that were
being overwhelmed by incessant-
ly by hordes of noisy crows.
They were so loud and intru-
sive that church services were
being interrupted to the point
that meetings had to be called
to deal with the problem. The
Presbyterians after much prayer
and consideration decided that
the Crows were predestined to
be there and they shouldn't inter-
fere with God's will. In the Bap-
tist church the Crows had gotten
into the baptistery, so they decide
to put a cover on the baptistery


and drown them. Somehow the
Crows escaped and there were
twice as many as before. The
Methodists deemed that they
were not in apposition to harm
any of God's creations, so they set
traps and then released the Crows
many miles outside of town.
Three days later the Crows were
all back. The Catholics thought
long and hard and came' up with
what they thought was a perfect
solution. They baptized and reg-
istered the Crows as members
of the church. Now they thought
they would only see them twice
a year, at Christmas and Easter.
In the meantime the Jews quietly
put together a plan whereby they
captured just one Crow. They held
a short service they call the Bris
(circumcision), and they haven't
seen a single Crow ever since.
Having used this story to try
and explain why I was having
trouble believing the results of the
reported study, short of being left
speechless, the long and short of
it, is she is now seeking advice
from a Rabbi.

Help us, help others
If you can agree that the Hen-
dry-Glades Mental Health Center
is a valuable community behav-
ioral health resource, won't you
please help us help others? To
offset the loss of state and federal
funding and help our organization
remain financially viable, the Hen-
dry-Glades Mental Health Center
(HGMHC) Board has authorized
a fund drive to specifically raise
funds to pay off (or significantly
reduce) the $400,000 mortgage


debt we carry on our buildings. By
clearing this debt sooner, rather
than later, we can redirect almost
$50,000 of our $1.8 million annual
operating budget back into pro-
gramming.
Hendry Glades Behavioral
Health Center remains the only lo-
cally managed resource for men-
tal health and addiction services
since it was first incorporated as
a non-profit in 1974. We routinely
serve 1,198 adults and 460 chil-
dren annually (FY 06).
Perhaps you are familiar with
our programs or know some-
one who has benefited from our
treatment services. Please give
or pledge as much as you can af-
ford. The sooner we pay off the
mortgage, the sooner we can
position the organization finan-
cially to make the most of the lim-
ited funding we receive for future
years. Make your check payable
to: "HGMHC, Inc. Mortgage Fund"
and return it today to P.O. Box 87,
LaBelle, 33975. Also, our organi-
zation is recognized as a 501(c)3
charity by the Internal Revenue
Service so do not forget that your
gift is tax deductible.
Thank you in advance for your
generosity and assistance with
this important effort to strengthen
the financial health of the center.
Please know that the HGMHC
Board of Directors pledge to con-
tinue making regular mortgage
payments and will only use these
dedicated donations to pay down
the principal until the mortgage is
paid in full.

Assoctlaion


By Sen. Dave Aronberg
As the Oct. 1, expiration date
approaches for Florida's no-fault
insurance law known as Per-
sonal Injury Protection, or "PIP"
- it has been widely reported that
the only three options are to ex-
tend it, mend it or end it.
The first option is a non-starter
in the Florida House of Repre-
sentatives, as its leaders reason
that an unreformed PIP would
invite additional fraud and abuse.
House leadership has instead
chosen to mend PIP by pushing a
number of controversial propos-
als that include less coverage for
doctor visits and more time for
insurers to pay claims. The third
option -- ending mandatory per-
sonal injury insurance -- would
transform Florida into a haven for
uninsured motorists and limitless


auto litigation.
Fortunately, there is a better
alternative if you think outside of
the no-fault box: Replace man-
datory no-fault PIP with manda-
tory Bodily Injury (BI) insurance,
where the person at fault is fi-
nancially responsible for the ac-
cident.
BI insurance is not new to
Florida; the vast majority of us
already pay for this coverage.
Florida, however, is one of only
three states where BI insurance is
not required, As result, Florida
drivers pay higher insurance, pre-
miums for "uninsured motorist"
(UM) insurance, which covers
injuries caused by drivers with
insufficient or no BI insurance.
An actuarial study shows that re-
placing mandatory PIP with man-
datory BI insurance would save
drivers an average of 30 percent


per vehicle on their uninsured
motorist insurance.
By requiring a minimal
amount of BI protection ($25,000
per person/$50,000 per incident),
we would also save taxpayers and
trauma centers millions of dollars
in uncompensated medical care
stemming from auto accidents.
A fault-based system would
also promote personal respon-
sibility by shifting more of the fi-
nancial burden of auto accidents
onto the drivers who cause them,
and, away from innocent, victims
and taxpayers.. An, additional
long-term benefit could be fewer
auto accidents, as careless drivers
are forced to shoulder the bur-
dens of their bad decisions.
In the past legislative'session, I
introduced this mandatory BI al-
ternative to PIP but several of my
fellow Senators chose a strategy


of "PIP or bust" brinksmanship.
Now, with the Oct. 1 deadline ap-
proaching, such obstinance will
lead us to the worst case scenar-
io, which is the elimination of PIP
with nothing to take its place.
Legislators may feel boxed in
on this issue, but there is a way
out. If a special legislative session
on auto insurance is called for
September, I will again introduce
the mandatory BI bill in the Sen-
ate. It is time that our colleagues
and the press give our proposal a
close lIoo. 'With -47 other stlaes
now requiring mandalorv BI co\-
erage, the solution to this loom-
ing crisis is not as innovative as it
is obvious.

Greenacres) represents District,
27, which includes parts of Palm

Two Clewiston brothers shot, one dies


Local man arrested,
investigation
continues

By Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
A fight between two families
at the Everglades Mobile Home
Park in Clewiston on Sept. 5, left
one man dead and his brother in-
jured.
- According to police, the same
man reportedly shot both broth-
ers.


The cause of the fight is un-
known.
According to reports, the
shooting occurred approximately
7:30 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 5.
Witnesses at the scene told po-
lice that a large group had formed
in the area, a large section of grass
between several mobile homes.
It was during this time that wit-
nesses reported hearing multiple
gunshots.
Jorge Rico, 21, was shot in the
chest. He was pronounced dead
at Hendry Regional Hospital. His
brother, Juan Rico, 22, was in-
jured by a gunshot wound to the


abdomen.
He was flown to Lee Memorial
Hospital in Lee County.
The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment broke up several smaller
fights that erupted shortly after
the shooting.
Although the police depart-
ment handled the initial call, FDLE
is now involved in the investiga-
tion and is working with the local
department on the case.
In the meantime, Chief Don
Gutshall was concerned there
might be some type of retaliation
in the wake of the shooting.
While not releasing specific


information for fear of compro-
mising the investigation, the chief
said his department is prepared to
handle any type of attack by either
of the two parties involved.
"Nowadays, nobody fights
with their fists anymore," said
Chief Gutshall. "Now it's knives
and guns."
Guadalupe Gonzales, 51, was
arrested and charged with one
count of second-degree murder
and one count of attempted fel-
ony murder. He was booked into
the Hendry County Jail.

Foundation honors major donors


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON Members of
the Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter Foundation honored their ma-
jor contributors on Wednesday,
Aug. 29, during a recognition lun-
cheon held at the Clewiston Inn.
Yasir Khan and Floyd Salkey, the
new owners of the Clewiston Inn,
sponsored the entire event and
provided a fabulous 'surf and turf'
feast to more than 50 guests.
Robbie Castellanos, Chairman
of the HRMC Foundation, ac-
knowledged and thanked repre-
sentatives from the following fam-
ilies and organizations that have
donated approximately two mil-
lion dollars to the 501 (c)(3) non-
profit organization: Berner Family,
Bonita Bay Group, City Council of
Moore Haven, Couse Family, First
Bank of Clewiston, Florida's Fin-
est Developers -- Yasir Khan and
Floyd Salkey, Hilliard Family, Lucas
Family, Olde Cypress Community
Bank, Ridgdill Family, and United
States Sugar Corporation.
Jeff Barwick, one of Clewis-
ton's community leaders and also
curator of the Clewiston Museum,
was the key-note speaker for the


occasion. Jeff took the group back
in time and spoke of Clewiston's
pioneer settlers such as Joe A.
and Marlin Hilliard, Carl Berner
and J.M. Couse. He explained that
many of those being honored by
the Foundation are descendents
of those Clewiston leaders.
The Chairman of the Hospital
Board of Authority, Henry Spang,
also expressed his appreciation,
on behalf of the hospital and its
board, for the wonderful out-
pouring of support from the com-
munity.
The Foundation will use the
funds provided towards the con-
struction of the hospital's new
Emergency Room, Laboratory
and Surgery Suite in Clewiston
(ground breaking in 2008) and
their Convenient Care Center in
LaBelle, which will be opening
soon.
Several other Foundation fund-
raisers. are in progress, including

The Elder Helpline working for Seniors


FT. MYERS The Area Agency
on Aging (AAA) Advisory Council
will holding a Town Hall meet-
ing for residents of Hendry and
Glades counties at the First United
Methodist Church, 300 Avenue L
SW in Moore Haven to raise com-
munity awareness of the Elder
Helpline.
The meeting, to be held on
Oct. 11, at 8:30 a.m., will be the
first in a series designed to edu-
cate the public in the ways the El-
der Helpline provides information
to seniors, their caregivers, and
concerned friends or neighbors
while connecting them with the
appropriate services for seniors
in Southwest Florida. Questions
about prescription drug plans,
concerns with elder abuse, need
for in-home services such as meals
or transportation issues can be ad-
dressed by the Elder Helpline.
"The Elder Helpline has been
serving our communities for
many years, and has recently
undergone an expansion by add-
ing new staff and call lines," says
Leigh Schield, Executive Direc-
tor of the Area Agency on Aging
(AAA) of Southwest Florida.




SI Cornrni
Co '.7


"During the prescription drug
enrollment frenzy last year we re-
alized that we needed to expand
and be prepared for the increas-
ing needs of the communities
we serve. Over 10 percent of the
500,000 seniors in our service area
are over 85 and there's a probabil-
ity that 60,000 seniors will need
assistance related to Alzheimer's
disease in the coming years," Ms.
Schield added.
The counties served by the
AAA include Lee, Collier, Hendry,
Glades, Charlotte, DeSoto and
Sarasota.
Ms. Schield tells the story of
a man the Elder Helpline has
recently assisted. He called the
helpline for his frail mother in Ft.
Myers who had lost her drivers li-
cense due to poor vision. During
the brief conversation with the
certified information and refer-
ral specialist, the man explained
That he lived in another state and
his mother needs assistance with
transportation to medical appoint-
ments, church and shopping. She
also needed help with meal prep-
aration, and light housekeeping.


The care specialist provided the
man with information regarding
the role of the AAA and arranged
a referral for his mother to Senior
Friendship Center for the appro-
priate services.
In follow up calls with the
man, his mother, and the ser;
vice provider, the care special-
ist learned that this woman also
needed some home modifica-
tions to keep her safe and subse-
quently linked with another part-
ner agency that could assist her.
With the services provided by the
helpline and its partner agencies,
the woman was able to remain
in her home which, Ms. Schield
says, is one of the major goals of
the AAA.
The AAA manages the Elder
Helpline and, according to Schield,
"works with any agency, com-
pany, organization or group that
provides quality services to the
aging population in our commu-
nities. We are constantly updating
our database in order to have the
most current service information
available to our callers."
To reach the Elder Helpline


call 1-866-413-5337 or (239) 332-
3019.
A second town hall meeting
to discuss the Elder Helpline with
residents of Lee County will be
held in Ft. Myers at Lee Memorial
Hospital Auditorium, Nov. 16.

Health issues



are in the news


AP photo/University of Florida/IFAS/Josh Wickham
Food safety expert Keith Schneider scrutinizes day-old su-
shi rolls in his office at UF's main campus in Gainesville.
Mr. Schneider says consumers who buy ready-to-eat sushi
from supermarkets should throw away any leftovers after 24
hours, due to spoilage concerns. Take-out and doggie bags
from sushi restaurants should be consumed the day they're
purchased, he said.


Sushi to go? Don't


let it languish


By Tom Nordlie
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE -- Grabbing a
box of ready-to-eat sushi from the
grocery store? Say sayonara to any
leftovers still in the fridge after 24
hours, a University of Florida food
safety expert says.
"Any signs of spoilage are bad,
but just because it looks good
doesn't mean it's safe," said Keith
Schneider, an associate professor
of food science with UF's Insti-
tute of Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences.
Take-out and doggie bags from
sushi restaurants should be eaten
when you get home or thrown
away, he said.
That's because foods can inter-
act when they're placed together.
Inside a sushi roll, bacteria some-
times find ideal conditions in the
spaces where moist ingredients
come in contact with dry ones
or where foods with different pH
meet. The result: faster spoilage.
"Sushi is meant to be con-
sumed the day you buy it," said
Mr. Schneider, who co-authored
a document on safe sushi prepa-
ration, in. retail operations with
UF seafood expert Steve Otwell.
"Each food item has a different
spoilage rate so it's difficult to put
a shelf life on (sushi)"
Mr. Schneider says sushi hasn't
been associated with many re-
ports of foodborne illness, but he
nonetheless advocates a better-
safe-than-sorry approach.
The term "sushi" covers many
foods made with vinegar-treated
rice and raw or cooked items
such as meat, seafood and veg-
etables. Probably the best-known
sushi varieties are makizushi, rolls
wrapped in seaweed and some-
times coated with rice; and nigiri-
zushi, rice mounds topped with a
slice of fish or other seafood.
Raw fish might seem the big-
gest food-safety hazard in sushi,
but Mr. Schneider says that's not
the case -- t's often frozen and
thawed before use, to kill para-
sites.
Actually, rice is more likely to
cause problems, he said. A bac-
terium called Bacillus cereus can
grow in cooked rice if it's not
prepared and handled properly.
That's one reason vinegar is es-
sential to good sushi rice-it pro-
vides acidity that discourages the
bacterium.
SMr. Schneider cautions con-
sumers who buy ready-to-eat-
sushi to minimize the chance it
will warm up. Take it from the


cooler just before purchase, bring
it home quickly and refrigerate it
*immediately unless you plan to
eat it right away.
"It's not one of those things
you want to leave on the coun-
ter," he said.
Packaged sushi sold in super-
markets is often made by spe-
cialty companies via franchises
within the stores. The biggest
such company in North America
is Advanced Fresh Concepts, or
AFC, based in Rancho Domin-
guez, Calif., which sells Southern.
Tsunami brand sushi in 130 su-
permarket chains, according to
the company's Web site.
Jeff Seiler, AFC's compliance
director, agrees with Schneider's
24-hour recommendation and
suggests consumers eat ready-to-
eat sushi as soon as they get home
to ensure the best flavor.
Though sushi is often associ-
ated with pricey restaurants, in
the past decade inexpensive sushi
has become more available and
popular in the United States, said
Sasha Issenberg, a Philadelphia-
based journalist who authored
"The Sushi Economy: Globaliza-
tion and the Making of a Modern
Delicacy," published in May.
"Wal-Mart opened in Piano,
Texas, with a sushi bar in it," he
said. "I think people see it as sort
of a clean, healthy alternative to
other fast foods at the same level
of convenience."
Statistics on ready-to-eat sushi
sales are sparse, but Issenberg re-
ported in his book that one survey
indicated 30 million U.S. adults
eat sushi regularly.
And though the idea of grocery
shoppers picking up packaged su-
shi along with dog food and dish
soap may rankle some aficiona-
dos, Mr. Issenberg says from a
historical perspective, this trend is
simply a return to sushi's roots.
In the late 19th century, sushi
was a low-cost snack sold by To-
kyo street vendors, he said. Only
later did this proto-fast food be-
come glamorous and expensive.
The first U.S. sushi bar opened in
Los Angeles' Little Tokyo in 1964,
an upscale establishment fre-
quented by Japanese-American
businessmen.
"In Japan, (sushi's) origins are
far closer to the experience of go-
ing to a supermarket and getting
takeout and bringing it home,
than actually sitting down in a
sushi bar and spending $100 on
your dinner and eating it there,"
he said.


Health issues are often in the
news.
In the news this week, a new
study found children contract
germs on the playground from
playground equipment and from
contact with other children. I
have to wonder why anyone had
to conduct a study to find that
out. The researchers suggested
parents require their children to
wash their hands after playing on
a public playground big surprise
- and to always wash their hands
before eating. (For this they con-
duct a study?)
Also in the news this week,
a frightening statistic for parents
whose children have been begg
ing them for shoes with embed-
ded skates. More than one-third
of children who use such shoes
injure themselves while learning
to use them. Most common'in-
juries are to the wrist and elbow.
So if your kids do have the skater
shoes, make sure you supervise
them. And you might want to in-
sist they wear safety guards. Now
I have to wonder if someone will
want to do a study on children
who wear skate shoes on a pub-
lic playground.
A serious item in the news
this week is the increasing prob-
lem of diabetes. The number of
Americans suffering from diabe-
tes is increasing. While one risk
of diabetes is due to heredity, the
increase is attributed to the Amer-
ican lifestyle of poor diet and not
enough exercise. More than one-
third Americans are overweight,
which is one of the risk factors for
diabetes. If your family has a his-
tory of diabetes, it's a good idea
to have regular screenings. Dia-
betes can do permanent damage
to your body before you notice
any signs of the disease.
Good news for consumers
might come from a proposal
from the Food and Drug Admin-
istration to change food labeling
to make it .easier for shoppers
to make better food choices. In-
stead of trying to read the fine
print on the back of the label,
shoppers may learn to scan nutri-
tion symbols. The FDA is holding
hearings on labeling proposals
this week, but don't expect to see
any changes at the supermarket
soon. Any change would take
several years to implement.
Fat babies and toddlers are
often viewed as "healthy," but
that may not be ,the case, ac-
cording a new study detailed in
the September issue of "Pediat-
rics" magazine. According to the
study, pudgy toddlers are more
likely to suffer from anemia that
their slimmer counterparts. The
reason, researchers found, is that
these babies are given too much
juice or cow's milk to drink in
their bottles. They fill up on juice
and milk when they should be
starting to eat more solid foods,
including those high in iron such
as meat, beans and fortified
breads.
The study found that children
in daycare were less likely to
be anemic than those who did
not attend daycare. Research-
ers speculated that the daycare
managers pay more attention to
nutritional balance when plan-
ning meals. They also found that
Hispanic toddlers were twice
as likely as non-Hispanics to be
anemic. Anemic toddlers may
appear healthy and seem to have
plenty of energy. However, iron-
deficiency in children could con-
tribute to other problems later in
life. Parents should discuss their


A : "

Life -, *

with Katrina Elsken
toddler's diet with the child's pe-
diatrician, and be limit fruit juice
and whole milk according to the
pediatrician's recommendations.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important
ifyou are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs iri-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

Bracken fern, common in Florida, is toxic to cattle, sheep,
goats and horses.

Dog fennel is another invasive plant. Although not toxic, it will
take the place of grass, leaving less for your livestock to eat.

Tropical soda apple is an
invasive plant and toxic to
horses. Birds and other ani-
mals can spread seeds that
are in their digestive tracts if
they eat the fruit of the plant.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Two potential problems with
"gentlemen farmers" and back-
yard livestock come to mind:
weeds in pasture that are toxic
to some animals and landscape
plants that they will joyfully eat,
some that are toxic. Either of
these can be bad.
In Florida, there are a number
of toxic weeds. "Poisonous plants
(e.g., Crotalaria, black nightshade,
spiny pigweed, lantana, etc.) are
commonly 'found throughout
Florida. Animals do not usually
choose to graze most poisonous
plants when forage is abundant;
however, when quality forage is

limited due to poor growing con-
ditions or overstocking they may
graze these plants," according to
the University of Florida Institute
of Plant and Agricultural Sciences
(UFIFAS).
Ideally, of course, you have re-
moved weeds from your pasture
and mowed or "weed-eatered"
the few troublesome plants that
remain before they go to seed.
But let's just say you just fenced
a new area. What to look for
depends on the breed that will
graze it. Don't forget, weeds cut


down on the amount of grass to
eat. Right now Dog fennel seems
to be growing, well, like a weed.
More weeds equal less grass.
Horses in particular will eat
what's bad for them, particularly
if they are hungry. They will not
eat grass grown up in the manure
you forgot to remove. Around
here, tropical soda apple and
bracken fern are two bad weeds'
for horses. Both are easy to spot
when you know what to look for.
Bracken fern is also toxic to
cattle, sheep and goats.

evidence to arrest the other.
According to police, one of the
boys behind the burglaries had
just moved into the neighborhood
- which officials consider one of
the safest in the area.
Investigators were unable to
recover all of the stolen items.
Both juveniles were arrested
and booked into the Hendry
County Jail.
The sheriff's office organized
a meeting with the victims of the
burglaries and assured them that
the responsible party had been
caught.
Relieved, the homeowners
thanked the sheriff's office for
their work on the case.
"Out of 13 windows in the
house, they broke the one win-


dow that was locked," one hom-
eowner anguished.
Because one of the juveniles
had knocked at the door of one of
the homeowners a tell-tale sign
of the suspects 'staking out' their
target the sheriff urges wari-
ness.
"If someone who you don't
know comes and knocks on your
door and asks a stupid question,
call the police or the sheriff's of-
fice," said Hendry County Sheriff
Ronnie Lee.
"There has never been any
type of crime in Flaghole until
now," said one of the victims at
the meeting. "I don't understand
what would make these kids do
this."
In total, investigators said that
the juveniles took more than
$20,000 in property.

Electric Supply Store opened in Clewiston


By Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON City Electric
Supply Company opened their
doors to the public Sept.11. This
is the first electric supply store for
Clewiston but it's simply another
of the many City Electric Supplies
that are already open. There are
City Electric Supply stores located
all over the East and West Coasts
of Florida and more throughout
the United States.
City Electric has been in Florida


since the late 80's and there are
over 100 stores in Florida alone.
To Mike Carmona, one of the
managers of the new store, Clew-
iston seemed like the right place
to locate another store.
"We did our research and
Clewiston is in the middle of Flor-
ida, with the economy is grow-
ing, so it was time to open a City
Electric in Clewiston," said Mr.
Carmona.
The nearest electric supply
store is in Belle Glade, so the con-
tractors and other people in need


of electric supplies would travel
to Belle Glade, according to Lu
Bertune, another of the store's
managers.
Mr. Carmona, who has been
with the company for 12 years
now and Mr. Bertune, with a to-
tal of three years at the company,
manages a staff of five.
"I recently moved to Clewiston
from Palm Beach County to stay
with City Electric and open up the
new store," said/Mike Carmona.
"We plan on getting a lot of busi-
ness."


City Electric Supply sells ev-
erything from batteries, breakers,
connectors, detectors and every-
thing electric. City Electric is open
Monday through Friday 7 a.m. un-
til 5 p.m. and on Saturdays 8 a.m.
until 12 p.m.
The store is located at 750 E.
Sagamore St.
"Hopefully the store will open
later this month," said manager
Mike.

Clewiston resident arrested for multiple charges


Man pulled over
for broken break
light is arrested

Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
On Aug. 30, 34-year-old Lee
Humphrey was charged with pos-
session of cocaine and for resist-
ing an officer. The weight of the
crack cocaine found in his pos-
session was five grams -- more
than 90 pieces.
Detective Chad Pelham of the
Clewiston Police was in charge of
the arrest.
The suspect was stopped at
a stop sign after officers noticed
that his brake lights did not illu-
minate. The car was pulled over
at the corner of Aztec and Olym-
pia Street.
Detective Pelham asked for
Humphrey's license and registra-
tion.
"As I stepped to the back of
his car to relay the information to
dispatch, I observed Humphrey
shoving an item between the
seats," the detective noted.
As the detective stepped to-
ward the window, Humphrey
stopped the movement.
For the officer's safety, Detec-
tive Pelham asked Humphrey to
step out of the vehicle.
Detective Pelham performed
search of the car for any weap-
ons, but didn't locate any.
SBefore Det. Pelham let Hum-


phrey off with a warning about
his lights, the officer asked him if
he had narcotics or drugs of any
kind in the vehicle. The suspect
consented to a vehicle search
which revealed an aspirin bottle
containing the suspected crack


cocaine.
The suspect immediately fled
on foot, but was caught by Det.
Pelham after a short chase.
The field tests on the narcot-
ics were positive and Humphrey
was transported to the Clewiston


Police Department and charged
with drug possession.
He was later taken to the Hen-
dry County Jail in LaBelle.

It's time for the Fifth Annual
LaBelle Health Fair! Join us on
Thursday, Sept. 20, from 4 until
7 p.m. at the Health Department,
1140 Pratt Boulevard, LaBelle.
Free screenings will be offered
for cholesterol, body fat analysis,
blood pressure, glucose, BMI,
bone density, etc. Heart to Heart,
Tobacco Prevention, Healthy
Families, and Healthy Start from
Sthe health department; Hendry
Regional Medical Center; Hendry
Glades Behavioral Health; Hope
Hospice; United Way; XL-Care
Agency; Family Health Centers;
Lee Parkinson's; Habitat for Hu-
manity and Curves are among
the providers that will provide in-
formation on staying healthy.
The free health fair's purpose
is to raise awareness of what we
can do to improve our health;
We are often so busy we don't
focus on our own health needs.
When we take even the simplest
steps to improve our health, the
results can be significant. Heart
disease is the number one killer
in America. Are you aware of the
signs of a heart attack or stroke?
Are you at risk for diabetes? Do
you know the symptoms of dia-
betes or what pre-diabetes is? Do
you know your cholesterol and
blood pressure numbers? Are
your bones strong? Do you get
regular physical activity? If there
were a 'magic pill' for health, it
would be physical activity. Yet
most people in Hendry County
do not make it a priority in their
lives. The fair will offer opportu-
nities to try some exercise ideas
and learn about becoming more
active. Come to the health fair for
ideas on lifestyle changes you can
start making now to be healthier
and reduce your risk of disease!
The fair will offer computer
access to information and short
quizzes on health topics
including finding your ideal
weight, and how many calories
you need daily to maintain, lose
or gain weight. Try Freeze Frame
to see how your stress level is -
can you make the flowers bloom
and the rainbow appear? You'll
also have an opportunity to learn
about upcoming Diabetes Educa-
tion classes, Freedom from Smok-
ing classes, Parenting classes and
a special program from the Can-
cer Project.

The Cowboys win in Hendry County championship


LaBelle bests
Clewiston 28-0
In the annual rivalry for the
bragging rights for Hendry Coun-
ty football, the LaBelle Cowboys
wasted little time Friday night in
verifying the outcome. The Cow-
boys posted four quick first quar-
ter touchdowns and then coasted
in a 28-0 plastering of the Tigers.
The Tigers were playing without
two starters, Tight End/Defensive
End Delvin Hughes and Flanker
John Runkles who sat out the
contest for disciplinary. Both play-
ers had missed the Tiger practice
session on Labor Day.
Clewiston started the game as
cold and made a string of mis-
takes during the first 12 minutes
of play. The Cowboys were op-
portunistic and took advantage of-
every Tiger miscue in that open-
ing period. After kicking off and
holding Clewiston, the Cowboys
took possession near midfield.
On the third snap, Tailback Ga-
briel Puente found a gaping hole
in the line and then veered to the
end zone corner untouched for a
40 yard score.
Clewiston tried to get their
offense started, but Cowboy de-
fender Freddy Robbins quickly
picked off an Isandro Marquez
pass and returned it to the Tiger
11 yard line. Two plays later, Full-
back Brandon Villerral ran a coun-
ter off the left side for the score.
The Tiger offense, awestruck by
this time, lost the ball again on
the very first play of their next
possession. Quarterback Isandro
Marquez was hit in the backfield
and lost the ball with Cowboy
Defensive Tackle Blake Barnes
pouncing on the ball at the Tiger
19. The Cowboys scored again


on their fifth play with .Wingback
Caleb Jordan carried the ball for
a 3 yard touchdown with 3:49 re-
maining in the first quarter.
Then, LaBelle got their final
score just 14 seconds later when
Cornerback Dale Thompson
snared another errant Marquez
pass and returned it 27 yards.
Cowboy Kicker Rey Hernandez
converted all four extra points.
After the first period scoring
binge, the Tiger defense held the
Cowboys pretty much in check
the remainder of the night. By the
second half, the Tiger defenders
were much more aggressive and
made some nice tackles. Line-
backer Alex Rubio led the defense tr,-'
with 9 solo tackles, an assist and
two sacks. Defensive End Willie
Armstrong also made some solid
hits ending up with eight tackles
and two assists. Cornerback Zack j
Waddell 'had three solo tackles,
two in the open field, and three
assists.
Offensively, Clewiston just
couldn't find continuity. They did Clewisto
manage a couple of nice drives
in the second half, but penalties Dunbar.

Deandre Holley shows his versatility in Raiders win


Blue Devils,
Gators come out
on top again

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WELLINGTON Glades Cen-
tral senior all-purpose player De-
andre Holley displayed his well-
known versatility, playing a big
role in the Raiders' 42-22 victory
against the Palm Beach Central
Broncos last Friday night.
Holley had a hand in four of
Glades Central's six touchdowns,
passing and catching for one
touchdown each and rushing for
two touchdowns of his own.
Earlier in the game, however,
in the first quarter, the Raiders
found themselves quickly falling
behind the Broncos. Less than
two minutes into the game, Palm
Beach Central junior quarterback
Travis Simmons led an 80-yard
opening drive, which culminated
in a 36-yard touchdown pass to
Broncos junior Jon Bostic.
At that point, the Broncos led
7-0.
Palm Beach Central struck
again on a 64-yard touchdown
pass from Simmons to Bostic
with 2:54 left in the first quarter.
Nobody thought that the Raiders
would be down by two touch-
downs this early in the game.
But the Raiders did not panic.
On first down at the Palm
Beach Central 28-yard line, Mc-
Coy threw a hitch pass to Travis
Benjamin. It seemed as though
one Broncos defender was going
to tackle Benjamin shortly after
the catch, but the wide receiver's
speed was too much as he sprint-
ed toward the end zone with 2:16
left in the first quarter.
This would prove to be the
Raiders' first of five unanswered
touchdown drives in the game.
With 8:42 left in the second
quarter, McCoy threw for his sec-
ond touchdown pass, this time to
Glades Central junior Rantavious
Wooten on a 23-yard pass.
From there, it seemed as if the
Broncos just could not respond
to the Raiders' strikes, as Glades
Central's defense forced Palm
Beach Central's last two drives
in the first half to stall with two


INI/Naji Tobias
At Friday night's football game between the Glades Central Raiders and Palm Beach Central
Broncos at Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington, Raiders quarterback Deandre Hol-
ley right is discussing with Raiders wide receiver Travis Benjamin left the touchdown
drive, which saw Holley connect on a 50-yard TD pass to Raiders wide receiver Eddie Poole.
The two were very excited about putting the game out of reach at that point Glades Central
was leading Palm Beach Central 35-14 with 9:36 left in the fourth quarter. The final score was
42-22 in favor of Glades Central.


three-and-outs.
Later in the second quarter, the
Raiders decided to shake things
up a little bit by inserting Hol-
ley in as running back for a few
plays, which ended with a 19-yard
touchdown run up the middle of
the field with 2:06 left in.the sec-
ond quarter. At that point, Glades
Central gained its first lead with a
score of 21-14 and never-looked
back.
The Raiders extended their
lead to 28-14 with two seconds
left in the second quarter on Mc-
Coy's third touchdown pass of the
game. That touchdown pass was
a 16-yard bomb to Holley.
In the third quarter, there
would be no touchdowns from
either team Palm Beach Centfal
was just hoping it could stay in
the game at that point. Late in the
third quarter, it seemed as if the
Broncos were going to claw their
way back into it, mustering up a
promising drive that resulted in
Palm Beach Central gaining three


first downs to the Glades Central
40 yard line.
But by the time the Broncos
reached the Raiders 35 yard line
to end the quarter, there was a
feeling that the Raiders would
somehow put a stop to this drive.
That's exactly what happened
when Raiders senior defensive
back Da'Coby Wooten made pos-
sibly the most important defen-
sive play of the game. On fourth
and four at the Raiders' 34 yard
line early in the fourth quarter,
it looked as if the Broncos quar-
terback was going to complete a
potential first down pass to Bron-
cos senior running back Zedrick
Joseph. But Wooten broke up the
play, essentially ending any hope
that the Broncos would regain the
lead they once had in the game.
Glades Central put the game
out of reach shortly after that big
play, when Holley connected on a
50-yard touchdown pass to Raid-
ers senior wide receiver Eddie
Poole with 9:36 left in the fourth


quarter. At that point, the Raiders
led the Broncos 35-14.
Later in the fourth, Palm Beach
Central made a dent into that big
lead, blocking a Raiders punt with
3:41 left in the game to make it 35-
16. Only 10 seconds later, Joseph
returned a 65-yard kickoff return
for a touchdown, making the
score 35-22;
But in the end, Holley put the
icing on the cake with a game-
ending 11-yard touchdown run
with 1:12 left in the game.
If anyone is going to beat the
Raiders, allowing 401 yards to
them 205 rushing and 196 pass-
ing certainly won't get it done.
Committing seven penalties and
missing a host of tackles won't get
it done, either.
John B. Timmons, the Palm
Beach Central head coach, sums
up the game for the Broncos.
"Glades Central is a very talent-
ed and well-coached team," the
Broncos head coach said. "We
knew the Raiders weren't going to


fold in the game. We made some
mistakes and they capitalized
on it. That's what great football
teams do."
Coach Timmons briefly
touched on what he believes the
Broncos need to improve on.
"We need to tackle better and
our penalties killed us," Coach
Timmons said. "Coverage wise,
we need to get better also. Glades
Central came out throwing
- they're fast and they made the
plays they had to. They did a hell
of a job tonight."
Glades Central head coach
Willie Snead reflected on how the
game went for the Raiders.
"It took us a while to get go-
ing," Coach Snead said. "I don't
know if it was because it was our
first road game or what, but our
coaches were frustrated in the
beginning of the game. The kids
didn't panic we were just flat
in the first quarter. Some of our
guys came in later on and gave us
a spark and after that, we just got
going from there."
The Raiders head coach
weighed in on Holley's perfor-
mance in particular the all-pur-
pose player rushed for 66 yards,
passed for 72 yards and caught a
16-yard touchdown pass to give
him 154 total yards for the night.
Also, Holley was the Raiders punt-
er for the game.
"Deandre is a leader with four
years of varsity experience and
has played every position for us,"
the head coach said. "He is very
smart, knows the system and is
very valuable to the team."
The Broncos finished with 258
total yards, with 111 passing yards
from Simmons and 87 of the 147
rushing yards from senior running
back David Ahola.
The Glades Central Raiders,
who now have a 2-0 record, play
tomorrow night at Palm Beach
Gardens, who lost 34-8 to the Pa-
hokee Blue Devils in the season
opener. Palm Beach Central, who
is now 1-1, next play at Inlet Grove
for tomorrow night's contest.
Pahokee 39, King's Acad-
emy 17: The Pahokee Blue Devils
earned their second victory of the
season with a convincing victory
over the King's Academy Lions.
Once again, Blue Devils senior
quarterback Anthony Sheppard


threw for 235 yards. Only this
time, he threw for two scores,
with wide receivers Nu'Kese Rich-
ardson and Antavious Wilson
scoring touchdown catches each.
Sheppard also had a 1-yard
touchdown run in the second
quarter.
Blue Devils senior running
back Janoris Jenkins finished with
14 rushes for 132 yards, including
a 25-yard touchdown run in the
second quarter.
The Blue Devils racked up 456
total yards, which included 221 of
them from the ground. Wilson ac-
counted for 113 of the Blue Devils
235 receiving yards..
King's Academy had a good
running game with 163 yards
- 141 of them which came from
Lions senior running back Myles
Jackson. But the Lions were only
able to account for 50 passing
yards, giving King's Academy a to-
tal of 213 yards for the game.
Also, the Lions were inter-
cepted twice by the Blue Devils
defense something they could
not overcome.
Tomorrow night, Pahokee,
who is 2-0 and is the 14th-ranked
football team in the country, next
play at Palm Beach Lakes. King's
Academy, who is 1-1, hosts Amer-
ican Heritage.
Glades Day 25, Benjamin
12: Glades Day junior quarter-
back Bo Schlecter was 9-for-14
with 207 yards passing and three
touchdowns, while senior run-
ning back Ernest Jackson lead the
rushing attack with 95 yards in the
Gators win.
Gators junior wide receiver
Jarrett Swaby had two receptions
- both were touchdown catches
of 32 and 42 yards, respectively.
Jackson also caught a touchdown
pass from Schlecter a 57-yard
strike in the second quarter.
Glades Day finished with 365
total yards, while its stingy de-
fense limited the Benjamin Bucs
to 144 yards for the game.
Glades Day plays at home to-
morrow night against the Clewis-
ton Tigers. The Gators, 2-0, will be
playing a Tigers team that is 0-2,
including a 28-0 blowout loss to
the La Belle Cowboys last Friday
night.

'Youth Alive' group takes services to the ball field


By Laura Mathis
MOORE HAVEN Last
Wednesday night, Sept. 5, the
Youth Group from the First Baptist
Church of Moore Haven "Youth


Alive" brought their Wednesday
night service out to the commu-
nity. The members of the 'Youth
Alive' group ran the whole eve-
ning. First, Susan Mathis led the
entire group with a blessing for


the food. Then everyone enjoyed
hamburgers and hot dogs, donat-
ed by the F.C.A.
Lindsey Ringstaff welcomed
everyone and explained a little bit
about what we do on Wednesday


nights. Then we had several of
our youth lead everyone in praise
and worship "Youth Alive" style,
and others held up the words so
everyone in the crowd could join
in.
Youth Alive member, Hunter
Ward introduced our speaker for
the night, (Mr., Coach, Minister)
Vincent Lewis. He had a great
message for everyone there,
young and old alike.
"We are all special to God and
we all have a "talent" so we should


use it for HIM", explained Minister
Lewis. Lastly, Macy Randolph in-
troduced our softball coaches for
the night, Mr. Jamie Brown and
Mr. Tommy Hare. Then everyone
enjoyed a fun game of softball,
whether they were playing or sit-
ting in the stands cheering!
There are so many people we
would like to THANK and we
hope to not leave out anyone.
First and foremost, our Lord and
Savior Jesus Christ, for everyone
having a fun and safe time and for


the great weather; Our Church
for allowing us to take our ser-
vice outside the church building;
F.C.A. for all the food and drinks;
Padro Navarro for cooking; Greg
and Mary Bond, Crystal Drake
and John and Sheryl Huysman for
serving; Vincent Lewis for deliver-
ing the message; Jamie Brown
and Tommy Hare for coaching;
Donnie Murphy, Alvin Ward and
everyone else who helped with
setting up --thank you for using
your "talents" for the Lord!

The people opposed themselves!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The Apostle Paul said that
"no man every yet hated his own
body" (Ephesians 5:28-29). Nor-
mally speaking, this is true. But
there have been and are situations
where it would seem that some
people actually opposes them-
selves, and even hated themselves,
if we took them for what they said
and the way they acted to mean
anything: Let us notice some in-
teresting illustrations along this
line from the scriptures.
Starting with the book of Prov-
erbs, we read, "He that refuseth
instruction despiseth his own
soul: but he that heareth reproof
getteth understanding" (Proverbs
15:21). Then as. wisdom speaks
out in Proverbs 8:35-36, she says,
"For whoso findeth me findeth
life, and shall obtain favour of the
Lord. But he that sinneth against


me wrongeth his own soul: all
they that hate me love death."
Proverbs 29:34 states, "Whoso
is partner with a thief hateth his
own'soul..." The end results of
being unwise, and disregarding
wisdom, is the same as if we ac-
tually hated ourselves. We can be
"pretty" dumb sometimes.
Some interesting Scriptures
appear in the New Testament on
the subject. In the book of Acts
we have a record of the speech
that Paul delivered in the Jewish
synagogue in Antioch. It was a
message of forgiveness of sin and
salvation through Christ (and the
eternal results, everlasting life).
But it was categorically turned
down by his Jewish audience in
an atmosphere of hostility. Paul
and Barnabas, without hesitation,
plainly and clearly responded with
these sobering words, "It was
necessary that the word of God
should first have been spoken to


you; but seeing ye put it from you,
and judge yourselves unworthy of
everlasting life, lo, we turn to the
Gentiles" (Acts 13:46). In essence,
and in fact, this was what they
were doing, judging themselves
unworthy of everlasting life. And
this was followed by persecutions
against Paul and Barnabas. Really,
nothing could be any more for our
benefit and in our favor than this
message of love, hope and salva-
tion. To oppose it actually is to op-
pose ourselves and all of the con-
sequent eternal good that would
come in our behalf. And to think
that persecution would come as a
result of telling people such good
news! What a contradiction and a
mixed up situation!
Later in dealing with false
teachers, Paul admonishes his
fellow-worker, Titus, "A man that
is a heretick (a divisive, factious
person) after the first and second
admonition reject; Knowing that


he that is subverted (perverted),
and sinneth, being condemned of
himself" (Titus 3:10-11). Yes, by
his actions he actually condemns
himself.
Normally, .people do not hate
themselves and then intentionally
respond and make decisions that
are destructive to their own per-
sonal well-being, but from these
Scriptures (and our own observa-
tions and experiences) we have
seen this taking place. What they
do is not thought of in these terms;
but the end result is nonetheless
the same. The Scriptures simply
tell it like it is. Sometimes we are
our own worst enemy!

"Homophobia" please call me or

When weakness becomes strength; seeing what God sees


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I skipped a grade in el-
ementary school, sports was an
area where I didn't do as well as
I did in other
areas. I am also
left-handed; it
was always a K
problem to find '
a baseball glove
or set of golf
clubs tailored to
my preference. -f
When it came Samuel S.
to choosing up Thomas
teams, I usually
was among the last chosen.
There was a teacher in el-
ementary school who served as
coach one year and she asked the
captain of the baseball team why I
wasn't chosen. "He can't bat!" she
was told and I will always remem-
ber her response. "Of course he
can't bat," she replied, "you never
give him a chance." At that point,
I was "chosen" and found out
something else. It seemed that the
pitchers were used to looking at


right-handed batters and I looked
different to them. This left them
off-guard. After stepping up to the
plate, I swung at the first ball to
cross, hitting a double and bring-
ing a teammate home. My limita-
tion turned out to be a strength;
I found that my batting "back-
wards" gave me an edge. It took
someone with a larger view of the
situation to see that I got an op-
portunity; her faith in the smaller,
more awkward, left-handed kid
led to an opportunity not to disap-
point her.
Later we would get our daugh-
ter a two-wheel bicycle with
training wheels. Little by little the
wheels would be raised until one
day they were no longer needed as
she gained confidence and found
out for herself what we already
knew. It was having faith, really
knowing of her ability to learn to
ride the bike that was called out of
her; a little faith, a little guidance,
and she could do it on her own.
I can imagine Moses saying
"O Lord, I am not eloquent ... but
am slow of speech and tongue
(Exodus 4:10) when God called
him to lead the people of Israel


and confront Pharaoh. We learn
that God told him He would put
words in the mouth of his more
eloquent brother Aaron, but most
of all God tells Moses "... I will be
with your mouth and his mouth
and will teach you what you shall
do (v.13)" It is Moses who led and
who mediated between God and-
His people and who delivered the
people from slavery to the prom-
ised land.
God calls and the fear of not
being able is vanished. Isaiah who
fears he cannot speak and be a
prophet calls out, "Woe is me, for
I am lost: for I am a man of un-
cleaned lips (Isaiah 6:5)" and then
his mouth is touched and Isaiah is
told his guilt is taken away and his
sin is forgiven. Then Isaiah heard
the Lord ask "Whom shall I send
and who will go for us? (v.8)"and
Isaiah answers "Here am I! Send
me!"
There is a Bible full and world
full of people that have accom-
plished the impossible because
someone had faith in them;
sometimes it was God Himself
and sometimes one of His angels.
God sees us in all of our fullness;'


weaknesses and strengths, assets
and liabilities. He calls us to see in
others what He sees; often when
they don't see it themselves. .He
has a way of turning weaknesses
into strengths, giving courage to
the fearful, calling out of us our
very best when others are sure
we can't do it.
I. never really went anywhere
with baseball, but' every once in
awhile I'd get up to bat and see a
pitcher with a look that said "easy
out" and wait my turn. It would
come.
Every once in awhile someone
would come to me and'I'd see
something that would make me
say "Why don't you..." and hear
"I can't."
"Oh yeah?" I'd say, "There's
nothing that you and God can't
do together."
I believe that because I've
lived it. And do you know what?
I've seen it happen; thanks be to
God-it happens when you give it a
chance to happen.
God is there; He comes or
sends an angel every once in
awhile and "I can't" becomes
"Wow!"


When the sheep



comes home


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Reading the Bible is some-
times like going to the movies,.
in the sense that we encounter
stories that don't quite ring true:
A man leaving 99 sheep to look
for a lost one or a woman throw-
ing a party to celebrate the find-
ing of a lost coin? Does anyone
actually do
that? Can you
imagine getting
an invitation
to a "lost coin
found" party?
It seems .
unreal -- like "
in the mov-
ies when one John
person starts Hicks
dancing in the
street and then suddenly every-
one else starts to dance along
with him. And they know all the
steps! Yeah, right!
But maybe stories from Scrip-
ture point to a deeper truth, one
that is even more real than the
day-to-day existence we experi-
ence. Perhaps the stories of the
gospel are God's truth, not hu-
man truth. It is the Lord God
who feels joy because He has
found a missing sheep and He
invites us to lay aside our skepti-
cism and rejoice along with Him
when He carries that lost sheep
home.
"I tell you, Jesus states, there
will be more joy in heaven over
one sinner who repents than
over ninety-nine righteous peo-
ple who do not need to repent."
More joy over the tax collector
who repents than over 99 Phari-
sees, more delight over the pros-
titute who repents than over 99
scribes, more rejoicing over the
drug dealer who repents thhn
over 99 clean and sober Chris-
tians, more happiness over the
career criminal who repents than
over 99 law-abiding Americans.


It would be easy to think that
this kind of stuff happens only in
the Scriptures; but the truth is it
also happens all around us in the
kingdom of God. When the lost
are found, God throws a party
and wants us all to join the cel-
ebration. There's nothing unre-
alistic about it. The challenge for
us is to join God in feeling mercy
toward those who are lost.
Several years ago, I was
working in a playground when
my wedding ring slipped off
of my finger. I could not find it
anywhere. In desperation, I took
off my shoes to mark the area
where the ring came off of my
finger and hurriedly sought help.,
With hope fading, I was crawl-
ing around on my hands and
knees. I was about to go rent a
metal detector when one of my
friends found it. And I can assure
you, there was great rejoicing!
Understand, things go lost
in my house on a regular basis
and we don't drop everything to
search until we find them, un-
less it is my car keys, or the last
pair of my three pairs of glasses,
but I digress! I call in the search
party only when something ex-
tremely valuable is lost. Other-
wise, I don't bother wasting the
time and just hope that it turns
up on its own.
Everything depends on how
much value we place on the lost.
Of course, Jesus' parables of the
lost sheep and the lost coin are
about the lost sinner who re-
pents and thus is found. If we see
people who don't know Christ
as individuals dearly loved by
God, then they should become
extremely valuable. It might
behoove us to call in assistance
and work tirelessly until they are
found -- and then whoop it up
when they repent and return to
the community of faith.
