Chamber dinner recognizes two


Christine Howell,
Beef O' Brady's
honored

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A score of lo-
cal officials and residents were
in attendance at the 59th Annual
Chamber of Commerce Dinner
this year.
Talking and mingling over a
dinner at the Clewiston Inn on


Tuesday, the group enjoyed the
night while paying tribute to two
important members of the com-
munity.
At the end of the ceremony,
Christine Howell was given this
year's distinguished Outstand-
ing Community Service Award.
New business Beef O' Brady's
received the Business of the Year
Award.
"I'm so honored to .receive
this award," said Ms. Howell,
who has managed Howell Oil
Co. with her son for many years.


"I'm totally speechless."
Ms. Howell was described by
presenter and Clewiston Mayor
Mali Chamness as an integral
part of the community, a famil-
iar face at major functions and a
guiding voice in the communi-
ty's path to progress.
"She genuinely cares for oth-
ers and her community," said
Mayor Chamness. "We love her
so much," the mayor continued,
citing Ms. Howell's "grace and
dignity."
The annual dinner also saw


the installation of the Clewiston
Chamber's incoming- officers
and directors. The new members
were sworn in during the event.
Among them, Laura Smith is re-
turning as director of the cham-
ber board; Steve Nisbet Jr. will
serve as first vice president and
Cathy Garrels and Nina Conley
will serve as assistant executive
directors.
For the last presentation of
the night, Laura Smith, chamber
president, recognized the work
of Beef O' Brady's, and its efforts


to support community events.
According to Ms. Smith, the
restaurant hat, in the few short
months that it has been open, of-
fered itself to various causes, in-
cluding supporting local schools
through fund-raising efforts and
other activities.
The restaurant has proven to
be a worthwhile partner to the
high school's football program
and local sports in general.

Clewiston News
CLEWISTON An attempt-

Accidental fire



engulfs two



trailer homes


By Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
A blaze last week destroyed
two mobile homes as a result
of an accidental fire, according
to officials with the Clewiston
Volunteer Fire Department.
According to the report, the
fire apparently originated in the
master bedroom of one of the
two trailers at the Royal Palm
Mobile Home Park in Clewis-
ton. The trailer quickly caught
fire and was soon engulfed
completely in flames.
The next day, on Sept. 7,
workers moved around the
rubble and the fire debris, load-


ing the trash into large contain-
ers nearby. Among the charred
remains of the home were
children's playthings, clothes,
furniture and documents that
had previously belonged to the
families.
The smell of burned wood
and melted plastic was still in
the air.
The Clewiston Volunteer
Fire Department was first .on
the scene. Due to the extent
of the fire, and how quickly it
seemed to spread, the depart-
ment called the Montura Volun-
teer Fire department as backup

Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Opening a
preschool was a special dream
for Elizabeth Garcia and Kristy
Bristoll, and it came true this
school year when they began
the Discovery Day Academy on
Basilan Crescent in Clewiston.
The classrooms and play
areas are spacious, colorful
and clean. Their enrollment
of 85 students is at capacity,
but plans are ready for a half
day volunteer pre-kindergarten
program.
One feature that appeals to
parents and guardians is the
online video camera feed of
student activity that parents
can see at the school's website.
Parents must have a password
to enable them to see into the
classrooms, and they can even
see 12 hours into past footage.

Health network may benefit consumers


TALLAHASSEE Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) and
Smart Growth Network officials
announced DOH as the first pub-
lic health partner in the Smart
Growth Network. The Network,
formed in 1996, is a response to
increasing community interest in
developing communities able to
boost the economy, protect the
environment and improve com-
munity life. The Network is sup-
ported by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency (USEPA) and
partners include a variety of pub-
lic and private agencies.
"Communities must be de-
signed to encourage walking,
biking, social interaction, prevent
traffic injuries, and offer health-
ful services in near proximity,"
State Surgeon General Ana M.
Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H. said.
"In Florida this issue hits close to
home because of our growing
population over the age of 65,
estimated to double by the year
2020. We have to plan ahead, use
resources wisely, and have alter-
natives available."
Motor vehicle traffic in Florida
has continued to rise, while the
number of trips people take on
foot has dropped by 42 percent in
the last 20 years, with 54 percent
of all trips under a half mile being


made in vehicles. The Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
recently reported 60 percent of
Florida adults are overweight or
obese, 26 percent of Florida high-
school students are overweight or
at risk of becoming overweight,
and 28 percent of low-income
children between 2 and 5 years of
age in Florida are overweight or
at risk of becoming overweight.
The Florida Department of
Health is encouraging Floridians
to support land use decisions that
improve the public health.
The Smart Growth Network
supports 10 principles as follows:
Create a range of housing
opportunities and choices Pro-
viding quality housing for people
of all income levels is vital to sup-
porting communities.
Create walkable neighbor-
hoods Walkable communities
are desirable places to live, work,
learn, worship, play, exercise,
and know one's neighbors.
Encourage community and
stakeholder collaboration Growth
can create great places to live,
work and play -- if it responds to
a community's own needs and
sense of how and where it wants
to grow.
Foster distinctive, attractive
communities with a strong sense
of place Smart growth encour-


ages communities to create its
own identity and set standards
which respond to community
values of architectural beauty and
distinctiveness.
Make development decisions
predictable, fair and cost effective
- For a community to be success-
ful and sustainable in supporting
smart growth, decisions must be
embraced and understandable to
both private and public sectors.
Mix land uses Smart growth
supports the combination of
mixed land uses in communities
as a critical piece in achieving bet-
ter places to live, living and aging
in place, and improved choices in
close proximity.
Preserve open space, farm-
land, natural beauty and critical
environmental areas Preserva-
tion strengthens the local econ-
omy, gives residents choices in
natural amenities, and secures
quality of life for future popula-
tions.
Provide a variety of transpor-
tation choices Providing people
with more choices in transpor-
tation is a key factor in smart
growth and public health.
Strengthen and direct devel-
opment towards existing commu-
nities Smart growth encourages
development in existing commu-


nities that already have public ser-
vices or systems in place, making
use of the resources that these
existing neighborhoods offer,
while conserving open space and
irreplaceable natural resources.
Take advantage of compact
building design Smart growth
provides a way for communities
to bring in more compact build-
ing design as an alternative to
conventional, land consumptive
development.
By supporting Smart Growth,
the Florida Department of Health
also supports the Governor's Cli-
mate Change initiative and direc-
tive on Leadership in Energy and
Environmental Design (LEED) cer-
tification for state buildings. Bet-
ter design of buildings and com-
munities will reduce dependence
on automobiles and reduce the
use of energy and products that
increase pollution. Better design
also promotes more physical ac-
tivity opportunities and less time
traveling providing more com-
munity and family time."

Smart Growth Network, visit the

health department, or visit the

Gators remain undefeated, keep Tigers winless


Blue Devils, Raiders
also stay unbeaten

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The Clewis-
ton Tigers played their best game
so far this season, but it wasn't
enough as the Glades Day Gators
earned a 24-14 victory last Friday
night.
For much of the first half, it ap-
peared as if the Tigers were going
to pull off a stunning upset on the
strength of their defense and run-
ning game.
Amid the sloppy field condi-
tions at Glades Day, the Tigers got
off to a great start on their open-
ing drive with an impressive 68-
yard run by senior fullback Willie
Armstrong to the Gators' 2-yard
line.
Just two plays later, Tigers se-
nior Colin Ricketts ran to the end
zone for a 1-yard rushing touch-
down with 3:19 left in the first
quarter.
The Tigers' fans were elated
after the score Clewiston was
up 7-0 and it was their first touch-
down of the season.
The Gators weren't going to al-
low that to happen, as Glades Day
junior quarterback Bo Schlecter --
who was 9-for-16 with 160 yards
passing -- led his team on a sev-
en-play, 74-yard drive that culmi-
nated with a 12-yard touchdown
pass to senior wide receiver An-
thony Norton. Norton would have
a great game, with six catches for
131 yards.
With 10:24 left in the second
quarter and Clewiston up 7-6 at
that point, the Tigers were able to
preserve their lead with a missed
extra point attempt by Schlecter,
the Gators' kicker.
But with 2:51 left in the sec-
ond quarter, Tigers senior Zack
Waddell, while trying to return
a Glades Day punt to get Clewis-
ton in good field position, found
himself unable to hold on to the
ball and Gators sophomore Clint
Johnson recovered the fumble at
the Clewiston 5-yard line.
With Glades Day able to get
the ball back after the Tigers mis-
cue, the Gators were unable to
score a touchdown on the drive
as Clewiston's defense held the
Gators offense with a big red-
zone stop on three big defensive
plays, including a Schelecter pass
that was intended for Norton but
broken up by Tigers junior Darris
Hughes on first and goal.
Glades Day had to settle for a
field goal at the end of the drive.
With 45 seconds left in the sec-
ond quarter, Clewiston saw them-
sel\ es trailing b\ a score of 9-7.
While Ith Tigers defense did
a nice job containing GlaiJi-. Day
running backs Ernest Jackson and
Cody Davis for much of the first
half, at some point the Clewiston
passing game had to open up at
some point in the game.
It never happened.
Tigers junior quarterback Isan-
dro Marquez promptly threw an
interception to Davis after Clewis-
ton got the ball back with 39 sec-
onds left in the first half. But the
Tigers defense prevented further
damage by keeping the Gators
from scoring again in the half.
Down by only two points to
begin the second half, the Tigers
knew they would have to pre-
vent themselves from committing
turnovers and making fundamen-
tal mistakes if they wanted to stay
in the game and come away with
their first victory.
But with only two minutes into
the third quarter on a third and
one play at the Tigers own 39 yard
line Marquez wound up losing
a fumble that would be recovered
by Glades Day senior Travis Au-
waerter.
On the ensuing possession,
Glades Day would make Clewis-
ton pay dearly for that lost fum-
ble, as the Gators would need less
than two minutes and only four

plays to score their second touch-
down of the night on a 9-yard
touchdown run by Davis.
With 8:17 left in the third quar-
ter, the Tigers saw themselves
staring at a 16-7 deficit.
The next Clewiston drive
looked promising as Marquez be-
gan the onslaught with a 20-yard
pass to Armstrong, followed by
a few nice runs by Hughes and
Armstrong. But on fourth down
at the Gators' 33-yard, Marquez's
pass to Waddell fell incomplete,
ending that possession with 4:36
left in the third quarter.
Clewiston should have capital-'
ized on that drive because on the
Gators next possession, it seemed
as if they were on a mission to put
the game out of reach.
The Tigers' defense tried to
contain the Gator offense on the
drive, with Davis fumbling the ball
on a third down play. But Davis
recovered his own fumble that re-
sulted in a 15-yard gain for a first
down at the Clewiston 48 yard
line.
After that point, the Tigers
couldn't keep up with the Gators
offense as Auwaerter finished the
drive on a 3-yard rushing touch-
down with 48 seconds left in the
quarter. Glades Day was up, 22-7,
at that point.
Early in the fourth quarter, after
a Tigers blocked punt by Gators se-
nior William Orr, the defense was
backed into a corner with Glades
Day needing only four yards to
extend their lead. But the Tigers
defense forced Schlecter into
committing a fumble as he tried
to make a play from the Clewiston
4-yard line on first down.
The. Tigers recovered the
fumble, creating an opportunity
yet again for the offense to score
again.
But only two plays later, Mar-
quez coughed up yet another
fumble that would be recovered
by Gators junior lineman Cody
Dionne.
The Gators were in great posi-
tion yet again to extend their lead
*as they began their drive from the
Tigers' 10-yard line. But after Ga-
tors junior running back Vinny


Jones gained nine yards on two
rushing plays the Gators were at
the Tigers' 1-yard line after those
runs he would not see the end
zone as the Tigers rush defense
stuffed him for a loss of one yard
on third down and no gain on
fourth down.
The goal line stand would pro-
vide another opportunity for the
Clewiston offense. But it proved
to be for naught, as the Gators
defense rose to the occasion, pin-
ning Hughes at the Tigers end
zone to get a safety with 6:19 left
in the game.
Orr made that pivotal tackle on
Hughes from the Clewiston 1-yard
line to put the Gators up, 24-7.
But the game was not over for
Clewiston, as the offense would
see the ball again later in the
fourth.
After a Gators punt, with 3:27
left in the game, Marquez was
picked off by Gators junior Jar-
rett Swaby. But the Tigers defense
picked up the slack yet again after'
Glades Day fumbles on first down
at the Clewiston 37 yard line
- Ricketts picked up the fumble
and ran 63 yards for a defensive
touchdown to cut the Gators lead
to 10 with 3:12 left.
But in the end, it was too little,
too late for the Tigers. Clewiston
would not score again and the Ga- ,
tors would prove victorious in this
contest.
"Our defense held up after
Clewiston's big play on their first
drive and our offense started click-
ing after that," Glades Day Head
Coach Pete Walker said. "At times,
we were sloppy in the game, but
in the second half, we scored
enough points to get the victory."
Clewiston Tigers Head Coach
Larry Antonacci was pleased with
the team's intensity throughout
the game but said that inexperi-
ence and turnovers contributed to
the loss.
"We had a lot of turnovers
and made some fundamental
mistakes in the game," the head
coach said. "The defense was on
the field most of the time. But the
kids did not give up. They were
more emotional and intense this


game. The boys played their best
game so far this year."
Ricketts couldn't agree more.
"We just made too many mis-
takes and we need to work on our
fundamentals," Ricketts said. "If
we didn't turn the ball over in the
second half, I think we could have
won the game."
Clewiston finished with 168 to-
tal yards, while they gave up over
300 yards to Glades Day.
Glades Day (3-0) is idle for this
week and doesn't play again until
Sept. 28, when Okeechobee pays
the Gators a visit. Clewiston (0-3)
will play at Glades Central tomor-
row night in the "Sugar Bowl."

noris Jenkins, who committed to

Rams throughout the game. Blue
Devils senior quarterback Antho-
ny Sheppard and running back
Marcus Washington also scored
one rushing touchdown each.
Sheppard, who completed
nine of 14 passes for 158 yards,
also threw for one touchdown
in the game. The Blue Devils fin-
ished with 393 total yards on of-
fense and their defense held the
Rams to only 125 total yards in
the game.
Pahokee (3-0) play tonight at
Jupiter and Palm Beach Lakes,
who is 1-2, go to Seminole Ridge
tonight.
Glades Central 28, Palm
Beach Gardens 26: Raiders
senior Travis Benjamin scores all
four of Glades Central's touch-
downs in the game, with two
touchdowns each on offense and
special teams in the Raiders win.
Benjamin, who had seven re-
ceptions for 153 yards, caught a
39-yard touchdown pass from
junior quarterback Kentavious
McCoy in the first quarter and a
15-yard touchdown from senior
Deandre Holley. He also had an
80-yard punt return for a touch-
down in the third and an 85-yard
kickoff return for a touchdown in
the fourth.
But the Raiders defense let the
Gators keep the game close as
they allowed 344 rushing yards
and four rushing touchdowns.
Josh Sheppard finished with 19
touches for 171 rushing yards, in-
cluding a 78-yard touchdown run
in the first quarter. James Jones
had three rushing touchdowns for
116 yards on 16 carries.
Holley was 11-for-17 on 227
yards, passing, with one touch-
down and one interception. Mc-
Coy struggled in this game with
only I-for-2 passing for 39 yards.
The one completion was for a
touchdown, but he threw for two
interceptions.
Glades Central, who is 3-0, host
Clewiston in the Sugar Bowl to-
morrow night while Palm Beach
Gardens (1-2) go to Vero Beach
tomorrow night.

Lake 0 reeling in the face of water shortages


Appeals and lawsuits
give shape to the
condition of the lake

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
Local industries are still feel-
-ing the impact from the water
shortage currently affecting the
Lake Okeechobee area. With the
emphasis being on conservation,
some businesses that rely on the
water supply are hurting -- Clew-
iston's sugar industry among
them.
The rainy season has yet to
produce enough rain to replen-
ish the lake's water level, and
most experts agree that the water
shortage will not be lifted at the
end of the period.
Several weeks ago, the district
voted against using backpumping
as a method of replacing some of
the water in Lake Okeechobee
that is being lost to Mother Na-
ture.
District officials could not ap-
prove the measure, they said,
knowing that the small gains in
the lake would be outweighed by
any harmful effects on the envi-


ronment.
"I'm kind of disappointed,"
said Bubba Wade, U.S. Sugar ex-
ecutive and a member of the wa-
ter district's governing board. "I've
been at U.S. Sugar since 1977. I've
seen all this happen. I've seen all
the hype, and misinformation
about what backpumping really
is."
According to Mr. Wade, the in-
dustry, as well as the entire lake
region as a whole, needed all the
help it could get, while it stares in
the face of up to a billion dollars
in losses over the next year.
Mr. Wade points to the argu-
ment in the 1970s that nitrogen
"was a major issue and a limiting
factor in the lake." For two years,
opposing groups battled the
stance before, according to him,
scientists concluded that it was
phosphorus, and not nitrogen,
that was having a detrimental im-
pact on the health of the lake.
To take the water that is avail-
able throughout the entire EAA
area (most of the land directly
south of the lake) and put it back
into the lake, Mr. Wade said "can
actually make the difference in an
economic disaster or not."
That position, at least for now,


is something that the district does
not agree completely with.
The truth is that many indus-
tries connected to the lake -- agri-
cultural and tourism all depend
on having a sufficient amount of
water to operate, proponents of
backpumping argued.
But the water shortage isn't
the only one of the lake's -- and its
affected party's -- troubles.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is hoping to ap-
peal a judge's order limiting its
ability to move water, such as in
the case of backpumping, with-
out a permit allowing it.
The district maintains that its
decision to appeal the order is not
connected to its desire to back-
pump, but its ability to determine
when such an action would be
necessary, outside of the federal
government's ability to limit it.
While some environmental
groups have criticized the dis-
trict's intent to appeal -- calling it
a search for circumvention -- the
district defends its actions.
Being burdened by the neces-
sity of having to secure a permit
each time, some in the district are
fearful that the agencywould have
much more difficulty in managing


the local waters and their supply.
The situation is being moni-
tored closely by other water man-
agement districts throughout the
county due to its implications, of-
ficials with the SFWMD said.
"It's a matter of state's rights
and that is a premise that we have
stood behind the entire process,"
said Randy Smith, spokesman for
the water management district.
"The district's position is that the
original intent of the NPDES pro-
cess applied to industrial waste
and did not apply to simply mov-
ing water from one location to
another."
The district remains mindful,
while it engages in its own battle,
of the local farmers and industries
that are affected by its decision
not to backpump.
"Obviously, they (agricultural
industry) were looking for some
additional water in the lake and
that's perfectly understandable,"
said Mr. Smith. "Fortunately, we
received some rain in some pretty
critical areas and that's helped
out a bit."

Florida's charity celebrates 50 years


The Florida Sheriffs Youth
Ranches is on the verge of mak-
ing history. This year, Florida's
charity is celebrating 50 years of
dedicated service to children and
families throughout the state.
While recognizing 50 years of
achievement, the Youth Ranches
will reach another amazing mile-
stone. By the end of the year, the
organization will have served over
100,000 children since it began in
1957, when two sheriffs founded


the first "Boys Ranch" located
along the Suwannee River in Live
Oak. Today, the Youth Ranches
consists of four residential facili-
ties and two camps, serving all 67
counties in Florida.
The main purpose of the
Florida Sheriffs Youth Ranches is
to provide a positive and healthy
living environment for at-risk boys
and girls. Children come to the
Youth Ranches from a variety of
backgrounds. Some have been


neglected or abused; others might
struggle socially and academi-
cally. Regardless of their past, the
Youth Ranches provides hope for
their future. Unlike correctional
institutions (such as boot camps),
this organization serves a differ-
ent type of kid in a different way.
The Youth Ranches reaches out
to "good" kids who come from
"bad" situations, like Josh.
For 50 years the Florida Sheriffs
Youth Ranches has helped thou-


sands of kids just like Josh. Since
1957, generous sheriffs, donors,
and citizens have come together
to offer hope and a chance for suc-
cess. This year, the Youth Ranches
will celebrate its 50 Year Anniver-
sary through a broad range of
events all across the state, includ-
ing the signature Annual Boys
Ranch Open House in Live Oak,
Saturday, Oct. 6. For more infor-
mation call 1-800-765-3797 or visit

e th


Area counties discuss lake issues


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE Problems
encountered due to low lake
levels were among the topics of
discussion at the Sept. 14 meet-
ing of County Coalition for Re-
sponsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Ca-
loosahatchee Estuaries and Lake
Worth Lagoon.
The group brings together
representative commissioners
of Okeechobee, Hendry, Glades,
Palm Beach, Martin, St. Lucie,
Highlands, Osceola and Polk
Counties. They gathered at 10
a.m. at the Okeechobee Civic
Center to discuss the impacts
of low water levels on Glades
County's sport fishing industry,
the Northern Everglades Initiative,
Lake Okeechobee Regulation
Schedule, the Herbert Hoover
Dike Rehabilitation, water condi-
tions both in the watershed and
in the lake.
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) had re-
quested the Coalition's support of
their request to the Florida legis-
lature for accelerated funding for
the CERP projects.
The low water levels in Lake
Okeechobee have made ac-
cess for fishermen from Glades
County to the lake almost impos-
sible. Over time, the old canals in
Glades County have carried silt
down toward the lake, reducing
their depth so boats cannot go
to the lake. In Buckhead Ridge,
the 2.5 mile long Pearce Canal,
built in the 1950s, needs dredging
before it can be used at all," said
Glades County Commissioner and
coalition member, Russell Echols.
"Add the silting from Hurricane
Wilma, plus the lower lake levels
-- what can be done? It is a prob-
lem when the lake gets down to
about 14 feet; add the silting from
Hurricane Wilma and you can't


use them at all."
During the public comment
period, Maureen Brady, a Buck-
head Ridge resident, said that
she had documents that stated
that the legal responsibility for
the Pearce Canal was given to the
Central and Southern Flood Con-
trol District in the 1960s. SFWMD,
as their successor, should be re-
sponsible.
Some of these canals were
dug so long ago that in many
cases, no one knows who would,
or should, be responsible for their
maintenance.
The Northern Everglades Ini-
tiative has been organized to
comply with the state legislature's
mandate for a plan by February
1, 2008. Tom Teets of SFWMD's
Land Resource Dept. reported
the progress on the area's ecol-
ogy, salinity of the estuaries, wa-
ter supply, condition of the dike
and phosphorous reduction. Five
watersheds have been defined as
contributing to the lake and each
can be analyzed separately.
Phosphorus reduction levels
can now be monitored by area.
A proposed plan will provide
256,000 Acre-feet of storage for
water north of the lake. The Kis-
simmee River restoration will
hold back water to replenish
groundwater north of the lake.
"This is just a start, I hope," said
Paul Gray of the Audubon Society.
With more time, water managers
will be able to tell us what it will
take to get the water manage-
ment system under a reasonable
level of control."
Kim Taplin, representative
of the Army Corps of Engineers
(COE) said public comments
on the revised Lake Regulation
Schedule are being evaluated be-
fore release of a final Schedule in
early November.
Commissioner Ray Judah of
Lee County complained that the
changes in the lake schedule will


affect the Caloosahatchee and
St. Lucie Estuaries. Ms. Taplin
replied that the issues of public
safety concerned with the condi-
tion of the dike made the changes
necessary. Although media have
reported that the dike has only
38 percent of the strength of its
original design against the action
of wind-driven waves, that num-
ber will be.revised with additional
information the COE has provid-
ed to SFWMD. The criteria were
changed after Hurricane Katrina.
Major Dominic Ciaramintaro
of the COE reported that the
revised plan for the dike reha-
bilitation, constrained by nearby
homes, will include "relief wells,"
(used up and down the Mississip-
pi River) to carry excess leakage
down into the soil where it will do
no harm, the toe ditch filled and a
much deeper cut-off wall will be
constructed.
Three contractors will be
working, including two European
contractors, experienced in this
construction in other parts of the
world. These methods have been
used and proven in other coun-
tries.
This reach will be completed
in six years.
To complete the entire rehabil-
itation will take 17 years and cost
an estimated $856 million.
When it came to the resolution
to support SFWMD's request for
accelerated funding for the CERP
projects, Commissioner Judah
motioned to include construction
of a spillway at the south end of
the lake into the EAA included.
This as not approved by the Co-
alition. By an eight to two vote,
the Coalition voted to support the
resolution as written.
Cal Neidrauer, engineer with
SFWMD reported that we have
had 100 consecutive days of the
lowest minimum lake levels re-
corded. The National Climate Pre-
cipitation Outlook still shows that


rain in November may be heavier
than normal with the probability
of hurricanes. That outlook has
been revised Seven to nine hurri-
canes are still predicted and so far
there have been three. But over-
all the 2007-08 dry season will be
much drier that normal.
"How will the lake act?" Mr.
Neiderauer answered his own
question. "Depends on rainfall."
Water restrictions will continue
for the foreseeable future, he said
"If there is no significant rain-
fall," he said" then by the begin-
ning of the next wet season we
could see lake levels as low as
6.5.
The only good news of the
meeting came from Susan Gray,
SFWMD, who reported that
the lake water is exceptionally
clear and aquatic plants have in-
creased. Few algae blooms have
been noted.
In housekeeping and organi-
zation matters, the Coalition's 10
members reviewed and approved
changes to their proposed by
laws, then elected new officers
for the coming year. Commis-
sioner Cliff Betts, Jr., Okeechobee
County was elected chairman,
Commissioner Joe Smith, St. Lu-
cie County, vice chairman. Each
member-county of the coalition
pays to support the coalition and
these funds have been handled
by Martin County. That will be
continued.

Learning sequence
Kindergarten students at Eastside Elementary were enriched by having the opportunity to
dramatize the story of "Goldilocks and the Three Bears" in the media center. Mrs. Dierks
read different versions of the story so the students were aware of the sequence of events.
Students memorized some of the main speaking parts and recited them while acting out
the story. Students were given props and signs to hold or wear to make the activity fun
and exciting for all the students. The study of bears, make-believe and real, is just one of
the topics used in the media center to enhance the love of reading. It coincides with our
school-wide theme of "Camp Learn-A-Lot".

Theatre production
Eastside Elementary fifth grade students in Ms. Linda Davis' classroom including, (from
left to right) Jontoria Bowie. Jameria Davis, Margarita Salinas, Erika Benitez, Ivy Scott, Ty-
rone Washington, Ja'Kerra Gadson, Bradley Lytle, Kemmye Watson, Brenda Jaimes, Mus-
taffah Seymour, John Mclnturff, Adam Fernandez, Feliciano Nunez, and Johnny Navarro
performed a Readers Theater presentation in honor of Rosa Parks. The play was written
and directed by Mrs. Rushie Osby, the fifth grade Inclusion Teacher. Reader's Theater is
used at Eastside Elementary to enhance oral fluency and confidence when reading.


School Happenings


Central Elementary
School
Hello, everyone. Students at
Central Elementary continue to
work very hard on their reading,
writing, math, and science. All the
students are reading every morn-
ing, during our 90-minute read-
ing block. For instance, one of
the wonderful stories being read
is "Nate the Great, San Francisco
Detective" a young detective's
latest adventure (third graders
read this story).
Another story being read,
"Dear Mrs. Parks: A dialogue with
today's youth" a terrific story
about Rosa Parks, the importance
of asking questions, and to never
stop learning. This is an outstand-
ing story, involving young people
corresponding with Mrs. Parks via
letters and e-mail. The students re-
ally enjoyed the story. Mrs. Parks
emphasized the importance of
always asking questions, wheth-
er someone is younger or older,
as we live in a fascinating world
(fifth graders read this story).
After school program
The After School Program has
begun, and all the students in this
program are giving an excellent
effort. Please contact the school,
if you have any questions, at (863)
675-3330
Upcoming events
The students are also enjoy-
ing all of the enrichment activities
available at CES. Our current and
upcoming events are as follows:
Sept. 14-21 Book Fair


Book Fair Family Event: Thurs-
day, Sept. 20, from 5 until 7 p.m.
Please call the school at (863)-
983-1550 with any questions.
Oct. 18 Chili Bingo The tra-
dition continues
Chili Bingo is a wonderful eve-
ning where students with their


families come and play bingo, en-
joy chili, hot dogs, and desserts,
and then they win prizes during
the bingo games. It has been a
tradition at CES since we first
opened in 1989.
Oct. 25- Second grade musical
program

Quality books
A child's life can be positively influenced by exposure to
quality books, and the Eastside Book Fair had many to
choose from. These students enjoyed shopping at the
Scholastic Book Fair during the week of Sept. 14-21.


Every




Voice




Counts.

"In a democracy, the highest office is that of citizens."
US Supreme Court Justice Felix Frankfurter.


We agree. Yet too many citizens feel powerless to influence
the flow of events.


We give people a voice. Our Speak Out column is just one
example. We consider it an extension of the secret ballot
and a return of the values of the American Revolution.

into racing cars?
ANSWER: My husband built a
race car for my brother and me to

ing cars and they had a girls' class
so I got in it and I drove. I did it-for


about 3 to five years. I won many
trophies.
QUESTION: Why did you
stop?
ANSWER: Because my broth-
er-in-law and I kept winning races
and they built a late model car
and I couldn't drive it because it
couldn't be in the girl's class.
QUESTION: What is the mem-
ory you hold closest to you?
ANSWER: The worst time of
my life, when my husband was in
Iraq I wrote him five. times a day.
I would send him care packages
once a week and would look at
coalition casualty websites to find
out if he got killed. I had a map
of Iraq in my house and then he
came back and he didn't want to'
be with me. But this has made
me a stronger person-everything
happens for a reason!
QUESTION: So you think the
war changed him?

emotionally.
QUESTION: What do you
think about war?
ANSWER: I hate it but I can't
change it.

4-H hosts annual


Awards Fun Day


Submitted photo
Karen Tindall, Leader of the Barnyard Buddies 4-H Club, was
named Outstanding 4-H Leader of the Year. The award was
presented during the annual Awards Fun Day.


Outstanding Hendry County 4-Hers include "(left to

standing Intermediate 4-H'er


By Sonja Crawford
4-H/Livestock Agent
The Hendry County 4-H Pro-
gram held its Annual 4-H Awards
Fun Day at the Hendry County
Fairgrounds in Clewiston. Mem-
bers received award pins in the
different 4-H project areas from
cooking and arts and crafts to
steer, swine and dairy goats.
Moreover, Junior and Senior 4-H
members received trophies for
placing in the top three in the re-
cord book competition in several
project areas. Leaders and other
adult volunteers were recognized
for their many years of service
and dedication to the 4-H pro-
gram from one year to 30 years
of service. Mrs. Karen Tindall was
awarded the Outstanding Leader
Award after receiving letters of
recommendation from her 4-H
club members. Mrs. Tindall has
provided leadership to the Hen-
dry County 4-H Club Program for
two years as leader of the Barn-
yard Buddies 4-H Club.
4-H members also received
special recognition for their ac-
tomplishments in 4-H. Cassidy
Cohran received the Outstand-
ing Junior 4-H Award plaque
with Kelsie Hansen achieving the


Outstanding Intermediate 4-H
Award plaque. Cyrus Mahan was
awarded the Outstanding Senior
4-H Award plaque. These awards
were based on letters received
from 4-H leaders outlining their
accomplishments in the overall
4-H program. Jessica Backes and
Jamar Boykin were the recipients
of the Pro Steadman Scholarship
in the amount of $1,000 each.
The Hendry County 4-H Office
would like to express their ap-
preciation to the Hendry County
Fair Association for the use of the
fairgrounds as well as the parents,
leaders, volunteers and commu-
nity leaders who attended the Fun
Day in support of the 4-H pro-
gram. Without all of you, giving
your time and talents, we would
not be able to reach the lives of
many youth in Hendry County.
We wish our graduating Seniors:
Kandace Adkins, Jessica Backes,
SJamar Boykin, Wes Crockett, Kim
Fielder, Nathan Harris, Haley Jen-
kins, Matthew McCulley, Josh Ow-
ens, Heather Raulerson, Bobby
Stewart and Jordan Whatley, the
very best and hope that 4-H will
continue to serve them through-
out their adult lives.

Health Dept. celebrates


'Clean Hands' week


FORT MYERS The Florida
Department of Health and the
Clean Hands Coalition celebrates
"Clean Hands Week," Sept. 16-
22.
Hand washing is the single
most important act you can do
to prevent getting sick and mak-
ing others sick. The Centers for
Disease- Control estimates that
5,000 people die each year from
food borne illness. 78 million
become ill and between 79,000
and 96,000 die from hospital in-
fections each year. A direct link
to many of these deaths is poor
hand washing.
Hand washing is important for
food safety, disease prevention
and personal health. Wash your
hands; before you eat and after
you use the bathroom, before,


during and after preparing food,
after handling animals or animal
waste, after playing sports, after
changing diapers, and anytime
your hands are dirty. Use soap
and water, scrub, rinse for 20 sec:
onds and dry.
Join the Florida Department of
Health to reduce illness. Practice
hand washing, make it a habit
and prevent illness and death.
Color posters from the "Fifth
Guy" hand washing campaign
are available for free distribution
by contacting a Florida Depart-
ment of Health Public Informa-
tion Officer.
For further information con-
tact: Roger Sockman, Region 6
P.I.O. at (239) 461-6110 or (239)

Buying American supports farmers and environment


At the grocery store, I always
check the signs to find out where
the produce comes from.
I choose foods grown in the
U.S. for several reasons. One is
safety -- some countries do not
have the same restrictions on
pesticide use that the U.S. im-
poses. While the FDA does at-
tempt to check imported foods,
the sheer volume of food com-
ing into the country means they
can't check every crate.
Another reason I buy home-
grown food is that I like fresh
produce. The nutritional value
of fruits and vegetables changes
as the plants grow. When a fruit
or vegetable is "ripe" it is its nu-
tritional peak and at the peak of
flavor. When a fruit or vegetable
is picked, it is no longer alive, and
so cannot continue to increase
its nutritional value. In order to
ship food long distances, farm-
ers pick it early. Sometimes they


A
Healthier
Life "

with Katrina Elsken
pick produce before it is ripe so
that it can ripen during the time
it is traveling from the farm to
the supermarket. Thus a fruit or
vegetable that is allowed to ripen
on the vine has more nutritional
value than one that was picked
while it was still green.
Buying foods grown in the
U.S.A. also supports the Ameri-
can farmers, who face unfair
competition from imported
foods. The farmers in other
countries may pay their work-
ers less and don't have to meet


HRMC to provide low-rate mammogram screenings


CLEWISTON During
the month of October Hendry
Regional Medical Center will
be performing mammogram
screenings at a reduced rate of
$50 per screening. A mammo-
gram screening is an x-ray of the
breast, which is used to detect
breast changes in women who
have no signs or symptoms of


breast cancer..
Breast cancer is the most
common cancer among women,
other than skin cancer. It is the
second leading cause of cancer
death in women (after lung can-
cer). This year, approximately
178,480 women in the United
States will be found to have inva-
sive breast cancer. About 40,460


women will die from the disease
in 2007. Right now there are
slightly over 2 million women liv-
ing in the United States who have
been treated for breast cancer.
The chance of awoman having
invasive breast cancer some time
during her life is about 1 in 8. The
chance of dying from breast can-
cer is about 1 in 33. Breast cancer


death rates are going down. This
decline is probably the result of
finding the cancer earlier and im-
proved treatment.
Early detection saves lives --
get your mammogram screening
at Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter. Call (863) 902-3061 to sched-
ule an appointment.


Health Department promotes Ovarian Cancer awareness


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) rec-
ognizes September as Ovarian
Cancer Awareness Month and en-
courages women to learn of per-
sonal risk factors and to schedule
routine check ups.
"Because the symptoms of
ovarian cancer are subtle and
similar to other illnesses, they
often are overlooked or misin-
terpreted, possibly leading to
late diagnosis and poor health
outcomes," State Surgeon Gen-
eral Ana M. Viamonte Ros, M.D.,
M.P.H. said. "Learning symptoms
and alerting a healthcare provider
can save lives."
The Gynecologic Cancer Foun-
dation includes the following


signs and symptoms for ovarian
cancer:
Abdominal discomfort
or pain from gas, indigestion,
pressure, swelling, bloating or
cramps
Nausea
Diarrhea or constipation
Frequent urination
Loss of appetite or full feel-
ing after a light meal
Weight gain or loss
Abnormal vaginal bleeding
According to the American
Cancer Society, ovarian cancer
is the eighth most common can-
cer, excluding non-melanoma
skin cancer and is the fifth lead-
ing cause of cancer death among
women in the United States. Ovar-


ian cancer causes more deaths
than any other cancer of the
female reproductive system. Ac-
cording to 2007 estimates, 22,430
new cases and 15,280 deaths
will occur this year in the United
States. The American Cancer So-
ciety also estimates that one in 67
women will develop ovarian can-
cer. The Florida Cancer Data Sys-
tem reports that 1,485 new cases
of ovarian cancer were diagnosed
in Florida in 2004, and 943 wom-
en lost their lives to this disease.
When ovarian cancer is diag-
nosed and treated in early stages
before the cancer spreads beyond
the ovary, the American Cancer
Society reports a five-year survival
rate of 93 percent. However, early

diagnosis occurs in only 19 percent
of ovarian cancer cases nation-
ally. Ovarian cancer is caused by
a malignant tumor in the ovaries
and often has no obvious signs or
symptoms until advanced stages.
Late stage diagnosis reduces the
opportunity for successful treat-
ment and recovery.
Factors that may increase the
risk of developing ovarian cancer
include:
Age-Risk increases with
age. Most cases occur in women
age 50 or older, but the disease
can also occur in younger wom-
en
Family history-Risk is high-
er for close relatives of women
with the disease


the same health and safety stan-
dards: Supporting the American
farmer helps support the Ameri-
can economy.
Another reason is taste. In my
opinion, vine-ripened fruits and
vegetables simply have more fla-
vor.
In the news recently comes
yet another reason to buy foods
grown locally it's good for the
earth. Transporting foods con-
sumes fuel and contributes to


pollution of the greenhouse gas-
es. So it makes economic, envi-
ronmental and nutritional sense
to buy foods grown as close to
home as possible.
Before making any changes
in your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is es-
pecially important if you are on
any prescription drugs. Some
prescription drugs interact badly
With foods that would otherwise
be considered "healthy."

The professor and the jar Prayers to one who shares
1 p 1 J 1 1


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A professor stood before his
philosophy class and had some
items in front of him. When the
class began, he wordlessly picked
up a very large and empty jar and
proceeded to fill it with golf balls.
He then asked the students if the
jar was full. They agreed that it
was.
The professor then picked
up a box of pebbles and poured
them into the jar. He shook the
jar lightly. The pebbles rolled into
the open areas between the golf
balls. He than asked the students
if the jar was full. They agreed it
was.
The professor next picked up
a box of sand and poured it into
the jar. Of course, the sand filled
up everything else. He asked
once more if the jar was full. The


students responded with a unani-
mous, "Yes".
The professor then produced
two cups of coffee from under
the table and poured the entire
contents into the jar effectively fill-
ing the empty space between the
sand. The students laughed!
"Now," said the professor as
the laughter subsided, "I want
you to recognize that the jar rep-
resents your life. The golf balls
are the important things-God,
your church, your marriage, your
family, your health, your friends
and your favorite passions and if
everything else was lost and only
they remained, your life would
still be full.
The pebbles are the other
things that matter, like your job,
your house and your car.
The sand is "everything else-
-the small stuff." If you put the


sand in first, there is not room for
the pebbles or the golf balls.
The same goes for life. If you
spend all your time and energy
on the small stuff you will never
have room for the things that are
important to you. Pay attention to
the things that are critical to your
happiness. Talk to your Lord, your
spouse, take time to get medical
checkups, take your spouse out
to dinner and play another 18
holes or catch another fish.
Take care of the things that re-
ally matter. Set your priorities. The
rest is just sand."
One of the students raised her
hand and inquired what the cof-
fee represented. The professor
smiled. "I'm glad you asked. It just
goes to show you that no matter
how full life may seem, there's al-
ways room for a couple of cups of
coffee with a friend."


Calvary Baptist welcomes new pastor


HENDRY COUNTY Calvary
Baptist Church in Hookers Point
said "good -bye" to longtime pas-
tor and resident, Mac Simmons.
Pastor Mac was part of Calvary
Baptist family for over 15 years.
He and his wife, Alma left to live
with their daughter.
On Aug. 26, the church had a
farewell dinner at the church. In
saying good bye to Pastor Mac
they also welcomed their new
pastor, David McClusky.
Pastor McClusky and wife,
Lydia have lived in Clewiston for
over 21 years. The new pastor has
been involved in ministry most
of his life. David is also involved
in the community. He is the vice
president of the long term devel-
opment organization "CREW".
He is also chair for "Relay for Life.
Asking why he is involved in so
much, his answer is" we need a
Christian influence in community
events. Christians need to be in-
volved in the community not only
supporting events by prayer but
also in attendance". David looks
forward to this new chapter in his
life. He always knew in his heart
that he would pastor one day.
He is looking forward to get-
ting previous programs started
again and introducing new ones.
The church wants to start a
children's church. Pastor David
shared with the congregation

OUP lif6 OP R Celestial house boy?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A frustrated mother did what
she could for her son, who
seemed to be helpless. She'd
tell me that she would tell him
to pick up his
things and he'd
askwhat he was
supposed to do
with them, then '"
where should
he put them, if -
she meant all
of them or only
certain things. Samuel S.
"It is easier to Thomas
do it myself"
she'd say "than to go through
all of the trouble of trying to
get him to do it." "Yes, it is" I'd
agree, "but the net result is that
he doesn't have to do anything
for himself!" That's not growing
up; that's not learning to be a re-
sponsible adult. In fact, it's really
teaching avoidance of responsi-
bility. There are a lot of people
around who have mastered the
art of'getting someone else to
do what they should be doing.
Employees will say "That's not
my job!" or a professional will
say "Let me refer you to ..." In
Church circles, people love to
pass things off to God that they
should be doing themselves. I
hear of people bringing God into
their prayers and into the pic-
ture when they should shoulder
their own burdens, get their own
show on the road.
People lose things from time
to time; all very natural. Then
they decide that they want to
find the lost items and will turn
to God to help them.
All well and good, but first
place your things so that you
can find them. Don't ask God
to bail you out when your own


lack of planning has caused an
inconvenience. Start searching
and let it serve as a lesson to be
better organized next time. Kids
(and some adults) won't study in
school and then pray to God to
help them get a good grade on
the test.
Immaturity and poor praying!
Take responsibility, be mature,
do what you're supposed to do
and then a quiet prayer to face
the test ahead with confidence
will be better. A lady told me
that the hurricane missed us one
year because "we prayed." I sup-
pose she thought that those in
the path of the storm weren't'as
loved by God as she was, or that
their prayers weren't heard.
Someone who let their pets
run loose had one take off. They"
felt praying would bring it back;
it didn't. I prayed that the animal
might be protected and find a
good home. I remember as a
child when our dog took off one
day and we searched. We prayed
for guidance and, if it was God's
will, for our "furry stepchild" to
return. He did, and then a prayer
of thanksgiving -- but also facing
the fact that we didn't pay close
enough attention and that, "ani-
mals will be animals."
I wonder if God is amused at
times when He hears our prayers;
the answer may well be "Aw,
grow up!" if we treat Him only
as someone to do our bidding
and cover over our mistakes.
God isn't some sort of "celestial
houseboy" who is there to grant
all of our wishes! There is the par-
able about the widow who has
lost one of her ten silver coins
(Luke 15:8ff). She lights a lamp,
searches the house, and then
when she finds it on her own,
calls her friends and celebrates.
Her celebration is in thanksgiv-
ing for finding what is lost, but it


isn't an effort to avoid the search.
The parable about the lost sheep
(Matthew 18:1 Off) tells about the
shepherd leaving ninety-nine of
his better-behaved sheep and
going off after a wayward one.
The joy is greater when the lost
one is recovered; we all under-
stand that. The shepherd wasn't
keeping a watchful eye on the
whole herd; so he goes off to
correct his (literal and figurative)
short-sightedness. When the
correction is made, it's time for
a celebration. A part of the joy is
found in knowing that there was
a lost coin and the widow by her
own efforts found it; or the shep-
herd knowing there was a lost
sheep took corrective action on
his own.
We should ask God for help
with something when we've
short-sighted; when we forgot to
fill the gas tank, when we were
too tired to remember where
we left something, when we
were asked to do something and
wanted to pass it off on some-
body else, but don't try to cajole
God into making up for what is
really our responsibility in the
first place, The message of faith
is a message of growing, matur-
ing, accepting adult responsi-
bilities, doing our part. It's not
about dumping all of what is
uncomfortable on God and say-
ing "Here, You fix it." Paul writes
that when we were "worldly" or
"mere infants in Christ" that he
gave us "milk, not solid food,
for you were not ready for it."(1
Corinthians 3:1ff)." He goes on
to talk about being more mature
in faith. The lesson is that we
grow up, stop retreating back
into infancy, and act our age. Do
our part, God does His part, and
then it will be solid food, solid
faith and real prayers for real an-
swers.

My last will and



testament


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There is a possibility that this
might be my last night on earth.
As I write this article, I realize
that I might not wake up after
my surgery tomorrow. Mortality
is a humbling
thought.
I'm not
afraid of death. '.
A number of '.
years ago I
came to the X, ":.
understanding
that for me, John
there are a lot JoHicks
of things worse
than death. I've seen too many
times when exotic means were
used to keep a body functioning
when the spirit had already left
the building. It's a personal deci-
sion of hope that some choose
and I honor that. It is not, how-
ever, something I would choose
for myself. I see death as one of
the ultimate healings that some
of us will receive. When my time
comes, I want to go.
Having said that, I realize that
I'm not yet ready to go. Even
though the doctor mentioned
death as a possibility, I was do-
ing okay until I was asked re-
peatedly at the hospital if I had
a living will or wanted to be an
organ donor. Then I had my
blood typed in case I needed a
transfusion. I know all of this
is precautionary, but it got me
thinking. What if I didn't survive
the surgery?
I did a quick self exam. My
relationship with my Maker is
good, but I am going to do a lit-
tle bit of final connection before
I go under -- just to make sure.
Kathy (my wife) and I are solid,
but I'm afraid that I will leave a
lot of things for her to clean up
in my passing. There is no way
I have the time to clean out my
office desk or finish many of the
other little odds and ends that I
usually take care of. Sorry dear.
And there are the personal
things. In my time left, what
do I still want to accomplish?
Are there things I would like to
say to those special people in
my life? I will make sure I tell
my wife that I love her at least
one more time. Those of you
who are weight challenged like
me will understand that I have
even been thinking about what
I would like to eat as my "last
meal"!


Professionally, I want to
make sure that the ministries
at the church are covered. I am
not naive enough to think that I
am indispensable. I know God's
ministry will continue with
or without me -- but the Lord
knows that I would rather it be
with me at this point.
But life is terminal, and so I
leave these thoughts as part of
my last will and testament. To
my God, I give my life, my soul,
my all. To my wife I leave my ev-
erlasting love and memories that
God has blessed us with. I also
leave in your care the effects of
my estate. I'm sorry for the piles
of junk that I have left for you
to sort through, but trust in the
strength of our God and the love
we shared and the friends we
have to help you through it.
To my family and friends I
leave my heartfelt thanks for
all of your support and love in
good times and bad. Words can
not adequately express the deep
feelings I harbor. To my church
family I leave my love and the
shared vision that God has given
us for His ministry in our church
and community. May you con-
tinue to love, support, and en-
courage one another in our
faith and fellowship. And for all
my readers, community, family
and friends, I leave thoughts of
a great God who meets us and
blesses us in oar everyday life. I
share with you my favorite bene-
diction: "May God go before you
to defend you, come behind you
to protect you, and walk along-
side of you to befriend you. May
He dwell underneath you to up-
lift you, rest above you to bless
you, and dwell within you to
give you peace, now and forever
more." Amen.
Addendum: I had scheduled
this article to go out if I went up,
but by God's grace I survived the
operation to submit it person-
ally. Consideration that I might
not live past tomorrow has chal-
lenged me to rethink how I'm
going to live today. I will defi-
nitely make sure I connect inti-
mately with God on a daily basis.
Every day I will not only tell my
wife I love her, I will show her.
I will look for opportunities to
share with friends and strangers
appreciation and the love of our
Lord. And with God's strength
I will start working on cleaning
out my desk and other areas of
my life which need straightening
up. Amen and Amen.
