Sheriff's Office
joins other sites
as a Safe Place

By Elizabeth Hirart
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office is tak-
ing part in making Safe Places
available locally -- refuge places
where children .in a crisis situa-
tion can turn to for help.
While there are a number of
locations are already available
throughout Hendry County, the
sheriff's office will help to locate
another site locally.
Safe places are recognized
by their bright yellow and black


"Kids Safe Place is a good program for children
who need a place to get away from home. It offers
help when they're in need."
- Sheriff Ronnie Lee


a place to get away from home,"
said Sheriff Ronnie Lee. "It offers
help when they're in need."
The way that a Safe Place site
operates is straightforward. An
employee or other representative
of a Safe Place location provides
the initial response, making sure
that the child is safe and a Safe
Place representative is contacted.
Safe Place responds usually
within a matter of 20 minutes to
provide the follow-up response
and transport the children to
counselors who can help them.
By law, the agency has to con-
tact the child's legal guardians to
let them know they are safe, but
counselors will continue helping
the child escape whatever situa-
tion he or she believes she has to


or dangerous situations at home.
A safe place is where a child can
turn to get help for a variety of
reasons, including abuse.
Local law enforcement agen-
cies, including the sheriff's of-
fice, support the premise of Safe
Places. Children are encouraged
to get help at the sites if they are
caught in bad situations at home
and feel as though they have no
one else to turn to.
"Kids Safe Place is a good
program for children who need


get away from -- or at least pro-
vide help to the family.
The importance of having
safe places locally is great, offi-
cials said.
"This world is filled with bad
people, so we got to keep our
kids safe," said Sheriff Lee.

they're located at libraries, fire

Here in Hendry County, safe

old K-Mart Plaza in Clewiston
will be the newest location.

S.0. deputies



arrest 3 men



at playground


By Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Hendry
County Sheriff's deputies
made a somewhat surprising
arrest when they found several
individuals who were gathered
in the playground area of the.
Montura Club House.
, While normally playgrounds
are used by younger children
in search of some fun, it turns
out that these folks had a little
more skewed concept of what
constitutes fun.
Three of them were arrested
and charged with possession
of narcotics.
Christopher Brown, 22, Mi-


chael Arroyo, 19, and Francisco
Legra, 25, were arrested Sept.
29, after drugs were reportedly
found. They face charges of
possession of marijuana and
possession of drug parapher-
nalia. All three live in Montura.
Deputies had noticed the
men at the playground and af-
ter making contact with them
determined that they had alleg-
edly been drinking alcohol in
the public area.
Further search revealed that
three of the five men originally
spotted were allegedly in the
possession of marijuana.

National teen read
week makes a
return at library

By Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - At thou-
sands of public and school li-
braries, classrooms, and book-
stores everywhere, people are
celebrating teen read week.
The ALA (American Library
Association) encourage teens
everywhere to read more. Ac-
cording to a study done by the
group, the number of 17-year-


olds who reported never or
hardly ever reading for fun rose
from 9 percent in 1984 to 19
percent in 2004.
That's good enough for
Clewiston.
The Clewiston Library de-
cided to participate in the
national teen read week. To
recognize the event, Barbara
Oeffner, librarian, is hosting the
second annual bookmark con-
test at the library.
"We need to encourage
everywhere that teens need to
read more," said Ms. Oeffner,

Mayra Quesada
and Kristine
Petersen

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Sitting
across one another in a room
at the sheriff's office, Mayra
Quesada and Kristine Petersen
didn't struggle in finding good
things to say about each other.
Occasionally, the conversa-
tion took some lighthearted and
some darker turns -- all based
on their collective experiences.
The two have been through
a lot together, and a stroll down
memory lane quickly yields
the experiences that have held


them close.
The two women are unique
examples of the female portion
of Hendry County's law en-
forcement -- both hold adminis-
trative positions at their respec-
tive agencies and the years have
seen them develop a lasting re-
lationship as a result of it.
Ms. Quesada works for the
sheriff's office, Ms. Petersen for
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment.
The unlikely pair says they
are closer than even sisters.
"Christ brought me anoth-
er sister," said Ms. Petersen.
"When you're born sisters,
you're stuck with each other."
The two were destined to
meet.
Now, you can't notice it


when you first meet her, but Ms.
Petersen, a New York native,
was a bonafide "Hippee-Dip-
pee," by her own admission.
The free-wheelin' Ms. Petersen
eventually found her way to
Florida, where she would focus
on her law enforcement career
in Clewiston.
Ms. Quesada, on the other
hand, came to Clewiston from
Cuba when John Kennedy al-
lowed entrance to Cuban na-
tionals in the 1960s.
They would meet in 1987, in
Hendry County.
Soon, they'd be known as
the localized version of Cagney
and Lacey -- two women whose
careers and family trumped all

Kristine Petersen and Mayra Quesada have moved up through
the law enforcement ranks in Hendry County together. Their
friendship is as close as ever.

The Clewiston Inn on the Ridge


Beryl Bowden wrote for
the Clewiston News in the
1980s. Thanks to the Clew-
iston Museum, we have the
drafts of her articles on local
history. Clewiston Museum,
in cooperation with Florida
Gulf Coast University, has
loaded into a University of
Florida digital library file,
over 700 local historic pho-
tographs. The Museum has
generously given the newspa-
per permission to use these
photographs.
The following article by Beryl
Bowden tells the story of the
Clewiston Inn.
The Clewiston Inn, one of the
best known hotels in this area is
successor hotel to the first Clew-
iston Inn, located on the ridge
along the lakeshore, east of the
extension of Francisco Street.
This earlier version was built of
wood frame and Celotex and was
-intended to help publicize the use
,of Celotex wallboard, which was
made from bagasse, the residue
of the sugar cane left after milling
the sugar syrup out of it.
The Inn used Celotex for in-
terior and exterior walls. The

manufacturer of the sturdy, fiber
board, a soft light brown, spoke
of its insulating and weather re-
sistance. Its use on walls and ceil-
ings improved the acoustics of
any room.
The Inn building was two sto-
ries with many windows open-
ing to the lake breezes. Its lobby
was spacious, the west wing of
guest rooms, the lobby and din-


ing room were completed first.
The dining room was on the west
end, adjacent to the two-story
Watanabe Hotel. For a time the
Watanabe kitchen prepared the
food for both dining rooms. One
waitress said, the food was exact-
ly the same in both dining rooms,
but if it was served in the Inn, it
cost a little more.
This was only for a short time,


Engagement


Mantilla -

Chambers
Mr. and Mrs. Alfredo and Dar-
rie Mantilla of LaBelle are pleased
to announce the engagement of
their daughter, Lacie Patricia Man-
tilla, to Mr. Kelly Chambers, also
of LaBelle.
The wedding is planned in the
family garden in November to
be shared with many dear ones,
both friends and family.
"Two are better than one, be-
cause they have a good reward
for their hard work." Ecc 4:19.

for when the new Watanabe Ho-
tel was built a couple of blocks
away, the old one was torn down
and the Inn kitchen and another
bedroom wing was built to com-
plete the building. These rooms
were on the west end of the build-
ing and had a separate entrance,
not accessible from the lobby. A
number of locally employed per-
sons lived in this wing, leaving the
east wing for travelers.
The Inn was well furnished, at-
tractive, and comfortable. A single
$20,000 shipment of furnishings
from a New York supply house in-
cluded everything needed: all fur-
niture, all kitchen equipment, all
table settings for the dining room,
all linens for the bedrooms, rugs,
decorative items, ferneries, porch
furniture and blue and white
uniforms for the waitresses and
white coats for porters and bus
boys. There were bridge tables
and chairs, folding cots and baby
cribs.
The Inn became the choice of
visiting dignitaries and the scene
of countless small happenings
that brightened the lives of the
residents of this busy little town.

Stetson University celebrates building

dedications, groundbreaking


DELAND - Growth and
,change at Stetson University

groundbreakings for construction
of two buildings on campus and
the dedication of five buildings
given new names.
Ceremonial groundbreaking
were held Sept. 21, for the Homer
and Dolly' Hand Art Center and
Stetson's new Science Center.
'Construction will get under way
in the next few months on these
and two other academic facilities,
with the buildings opening during
the 2008-09 academic year, which
will be Stetson's 125th anniver-
sary. The four projects represent
$13 million in new construction
at Stetson.
The new 5,000-square-foot
Homer and Dolly Hand Art Center
will feature two galleries - one to
exhibit rotating selections from
Stetson's Vera Bluemner Kouba
Collection of art by Modernist
painter Oscar Bluemner (1867-
1938) and the second to display
other works from the university's
permanent art collection or for
special shows. It will be located
,between Sampson Hall and the


duPont-Ball Library on campus.
Longtime Stetson trustee
and alumna Dolly Hand and her
husband, Homer Hand, of Belle
Glade, made the lead gift for the
art center. Dolly Hand is a 1949
graduate of Stetson's College of
Law. She has served on the Stet-
son University Board of Trustees
since 1994. The Hands own and
operate Hand Enterprises, the
management company for their
land holdings. They are active in
civic affairs in the Belle Glade/
Okeechobee area.
The first phase of the Science
Center will be a'22,000-square-
foot expansion to the front (west
side) of the existing science build-
ing, Sage Hall. The new two-story
section will increase space for
science at Stetson by nearly 50
percent.
Three of the university's new
residence halls and the club-
house at the University Village
Apartments were named during
a dedication ceremony Sept. 21
at which donors were honored.
Naming opportunities for the
buildings and another residence
hall that opened in 2006 range


from $500,000 to $3 million.
Stetson's Hon Hall is being
named in memory of alumni
Chauncey F. and Lois Hon John-
son, by their son, C. Paul Johnson,

Rinker Hall and Rinker Club-
house are being named in mem-
ory of Marshall E. and Vera Lea
Rinker by the Marshall E. Rinker
Sr. Foundation Inc.
Also dedicated Sept. 20, was
Stetson's Center for Service Learn-
ing, which is designed to be the
hub of community service and
civic engagement on campus.
The center on Bert Fish Drive will

SFWMD creates Office of Ombuds and Open Government


WEST PAbM BEACH - The
South Florida Water Management
District announced the creation of
the Office of Ombuds and Open
Government, merging the Dis-
trict's public records, Ombuds and
citizen services functions into one
centralized location. The State's
largest water management agency
is taking strides to further enhance
customer service, promote public
access to government and more
efficiently respond. to customer
concerns and inquiries. The office
will be headed by Carolyn L. Wil-
liams, who has served as District
Ombuds for the past three years.
"This new office is a part of the
District's effort to further the Gov-
ernor's priorities of open govern-
ment and customer service," said


South Florida Water Management
District Governing Board Chair-
man Eric Buermann. "By combin-
ing the public records office with
our Ombuds function, the District
will be able to better use its avail-
able resources and more efficient-
ly and effectively respond to the
needs of its constituents."
The Office of Ombuds and
Open Government provides a
centralized point of contact for
general inquiries, addressing cus-
tomer concerns and processing
information requests. With ac-
cess to the District's entire orga-
nization, the office will provide
efficient and timely responses to
citizen requests. As a part of its
active public records program,
the District will continue to pro-


vide public records training to
its staff, ensuring that the agency
complies with Florida's statutory
requirements. So far this year,
the public records office has pro-
cessed close to 900 requests for
public documents.
"This is another step toward
ensuring the State's largest wa-
ter management district is ac-
countable and transparent," said
South Florida Water Management
District Executive Director Carol
A. Wehle. "The District takes its
responsibilities to the Florida
taxpayers seriously. The Office of
Ombuds and Open Government
will provide Floridians with cen-
tralized access to the District and
allow this agency to continue to
improve its operations, policies


and decision-making , through
feedback from our constituents."
In accord with Governor Char-
lie Crist's priorities, the office will
promote transparency and ac-
countability in government and
ensure that incoming written
correspondence and verbal inqui-
ries receive a timely response. In
addition, the District's Ombuds
will continue to help constituents
understand the policies, practices
and programs of the agency, facil-
itate citizen-staff interactions and
encourage amicable resolution of
issues and concerns. - .
"By enhancing public access
through the creation of an effec-
tive Office of Ombuds and Open
Government, the District sends a
strong and serious message about


City of Pahokee balances 2007-2008 budget


Pahokee's millage
rate, budget set for
fiscal year

By Naji Tobias
INI
PAHOKEE - Pahokee city
commissioners voted unani-
mously to approve both a resolu-
tion to the final budget and the fi-
nal millage rate for the 2007-2008
fiscal year.
The fiscal year began on Mon-
day and ends Sept. 30, 2008.
The final budget for the fis-


cal year is set at $7,918,215, up
$34,681 from the 2006-2007 fiscal
year budget.
Of the budget amount set for
this fiscal year, $3,752,700 will
be used toward the general fund
while $3,216,176 will go towards
the water and sewer fund. The
amount of $640,736 will be utilized
for the garbage and sold waste en-
terprise fund and $246,107 will be
used for the Pahokee-Port Mayaca
Cemetery Fund.
Also, the 2007-2008 millage
rate for the fiscal year is set at
$7.02 per $1,000 in taxable value
for the budget's general fund.
Combined with the Palm Beach


County municipal service tax unit
(MSTU) of 2.7794 mills set by the
county's board of commissioners,
the city's tentative proposed mill-
age rate overall is set at 9.7994.
That's a slight reduction of
0.2006 mills from the 2006-2007
fiscal year, when the city's millage
rate was 10.00 per $1,000 in tax-
able value.
The gross taxable value for this
fiscal year, certified and set by the
county's property appraiser, is
$98,679,229, while the ad valorem
taxes will be set at $692,728 - a
$15,289 increase from last year's
taxes.
Pahokee City Manager Lillie


J. Latimore said that in addition
to the passage of the budget and
millage rate, the city has benefited
from a balanced budget despite
a cut in ad valorem revenue re-
ceipts.
Ms. Latimore was very happy
with how the city has progressed
over the past year.
"We are proud to say that we
have ended the year with a healthy
financial status," Ms. Latimore
said. "I'm proud of the work that
we've done and we have done ex-
ceptionally well."

ter reuse. Water reuse, an integral
part of the District's water con-
servation program, applies highly
treated wastewater in a beneficial
way, such as landscape irrigation
and wetland restoration.
This month, the Florida Sec-
tion of the WateReuse Associa-
tion recognized the District for the
agency's noteworthy contribu-
tions and support in developing
water reuse within its 16-county
region. The Section presented
District staff with a 2007 WateRe-
use Florida A% ard of Appreciation
i "r-c'o rni;.,,rn of the 'Distrit'fs
outstanding support and contri-
butions to water reuse in Florida"
during the 22nd Annual WateRe-
use Symposium.
For the award, the District was
recognized for its prominent role
in the establishment of Florida's
state section of the WateReuse As-
sociation, known as WateReuse
Florida; for organizing and hold-
ing the Section's first water reuse
seminar in May 2007 and for con-
tinuing contributions and support
to WateReuse Florida.
"As regional water managers


and stewards of the environment,
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District naturally has chosen
to take. a leadership role in the
development of water reuse in
Florida and while we are off to a
great start through various proj-
ects already online, communities
must continue to develop and im-
plement reuse solutions to protect
Florida's future water supplies,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle. "Reuse reduc-
es reliance on traditional water
sources and replenishes valuable
water supplies, while providing an
environmentally sound means for
managing wastewater. As a result,
it can lessen the adverse impacts
of drought and help municipali-
ties meet the water demands of
growing populations."
Additionally, the WateReuse
Association presented awards to
the best and the brightest in the
water reuse and desalination fields
during the Symposium, The pres-
tigious awards recognize superior
water reuse, reclamation and recy-
cling projects that advance reuse,
utilize new reclamation technolo-
gies or make significant contribu-
tions to water reuse and/or desali-
nation across the United States.
Two projects funded in part by
the District - the Water Conserv
II in Orange County and the City


of West Palm Beach's Wetland-
Based Water Reclamation Project
- received a 2007 WateReuse As-
sociation Award of Merit.
Water Conserv II was the first
permitted reuse project in Florida
to use reclaimed water to irrigate
crops produced for human con-
sumption. For more than 20 years,
this multi-faceted project has
provided high quality reclaimed
water to its customers, which in-
clude citrus groves, golf courses,
landscape nurseries, tree farms
and residential lawns. Water Con-
serv II currently reuses over 31
million gallons of reclaimed water
per day.
The City of West Palm Beach's
Wetland-Based Water Reclama-
tion Project uses highly treated
reclaimed water to resior- wet-
lands, augment 'lodal %Iater re-
sources and reduce the amount
of effluent disposed via deep-well
injection. This project is the first of
its kind in Florida.
Water reuse is a vital alterna-
tive source of water for the State
of Florida. To assist entities in
implementing reuse, the District
and the State of Florida have in-
vested $24.6 million over the past
two years to fund 71 water reuse
projects through the District's Al-
ternative Water Supply Funding
Program. These projects added


93 million gallons per day of re-
claimed water capacity to the re-
gional supply.
More than 100 water reuse
systems throughout South Florida
currently produce more than 230
million gallons of reclaimed wa-
ter each day - the equivalent of
nearly 15,000 residential swim-
ming pools. This water is used to
irrigate hundreds of golf courses
and thousands of residential lots
as well as to provide environmen-
tal enhancement and recharge of
regional water resources across
the District's 16 counties.
To see water reuse in action
in South Florida, visit Palm Beach

dahatchee Wetlands, "\here re-

The WateReuse Association is
an international non-profit orga-
nization whose mission is to ad-

use of water resources through
education, sound science, and
technology using reclamation,
recycling, reuse and desalination
for the benefit of its members, the
public and the environment.

Florida Department of Community Affairs awards grants


TALLAHASSEE - The Florida
Department of Community Affairs
today announced the award of
more than $20.3 million for hous-
ing and community improvement
grants designed primarily to help,
low- to moderate-income Florid-
ians. Six Florida counties and 27
cities will receive a share of the
Small Cities Community Develop-
ment Block Grant (CDBG) funds,
awarded annually on a competi-
tive basis.
"Sometimes Florida's smaller
communities need a little extra
help with local improvement
efforts, and this program is an
important resource for their resi-
dents," said DCA Secretary Tom


Pelham. "Through this program,
funds will go where they are most
needed to enhance the quality of
life in Florida's low- to moderate-
income neighborhoods."
The Small Cities CDBG pro-
gram is designed to assist com-
munities too small to receive au-
tomatic, or "entitlement," funds
from the federal government.
Most smaller Florida communi-
ties -- cities of less than 50,000
population or counties of less
than 200,000 -- are eligible to ap-
ply for grants to address housing
rehabilitation, neighborhood re-
vitalization and commercial revi-
talization.
The total amount of this
award to Florida communities is


$20,385,194.80. Of this, slightly
more than $10.6 million is des-
ignated for neighborhood revi-
talization, $8 million for housing
rehabilitation projects and $1.5
million for improvements to de-
clining commercial areas. An
additional $254,420 is awarded
for planning and design specifica-
tions for infrastructure.
Funds are allocated to states
by. the U.S. Department of Hous-
ing and Urban Development,
based on a formula developed
by Congress, to meet the national
objectives to principally benefit
low- and moderate-income per-
sons, prevent or eliminate slum
or blight, or address other urgent
community development needs.


Small cities CDBG program
funds for housing, neighborhood
revitalization and commercial re-
vitajization are awarded to local
communities by the state once a
year based on a competitive ap-
plication process. Eligible com-
munities may apply for housing,
neighborhood or commercial
grants only if they have no other
CDBG grants open at the time.
The Department of Commu-
nity Affairs helps Florida's com-
munities meet the challenges of
growth, reduce the effects of di-
sasters and invest in the commu-
nity. For more information regard-
ing the Department or the Small
Cities CDBG program, please visit

Lifestyle changes



can improve health


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry County
Health Department
The secret to successful weight
management is not just losing
weight, but keeping it off perma-
nently. Most of us have lost weight
only to regain as much or more
after we stop dieting. Although
there really isn't one "best way"
to lose it, slow, gradual weight
loss is healthier, easier to manage
and more likely to be permanent.
To really be successful we need
to make lifestyle changes that fo-
cus on what we eat and getting
our bodies moving! If your diet is
too restrictive or not something
you can follow for the rest of your
life, then you are setting yourself
Up for failure.
Be realistic -- make small
changes over time in what you
eat and the level of activity you
do. The problem with so many
diets is they are drastic changes
and our bodies and minds react
badly. Knowing a food is off lim-
its just makes us crave it more. So


be sensible -- enjoy all foods; just
don't overdo it.
Be adventurous -- expand your
tastes to enjoy a variety of foods.
Make your taste expansion fruits
and vegetables. Try different
things. Most grocery stores have
recipes available to give you ideas
on how to eat the unfamiliar.
Be flexible -- go ahead and bal-
ance what you eat and the physi-
cal activity you do over several
days. If you 'blow it' one meal
don't give up, just start over at the
next meal.
Be active -- walk the dog; don't
just watch the dog walk! If you are
sedentary now don't start with
a two mile walk. If you do too
much at once chances are you'll
be really sore or get a blister or
other injury that will give you an
excuse not to do more. Start with
a ten minute walk and build from
there. Set yourself up for success,
not failure. Make small changes
that you can maintain. A journey
of a thousand miles begins with
a single step and so does weight
loss and getting active.

application of basic Navy skills


and the core values of Honor,

distinctly Navy flavor was de-

Painful muscle cramps may be prevented


Anyone who ever experienced
a Charley horse won't forget it.
The sudden pain can wake you
:up in the middle of the night with
a calf muscle tightened into a
',hard ball.
According to the National
institutee of Health (NIH) web
-site, www.nlm,nih.gov, a "Char-
ley horse" is a painful condition
caused by sudden muscle con-
traction.
According to the NIH, muscle
cramps are sudden, involuntary
contractions or spasms in one or
more of your muscles. They often
occur after exercise or at night,
and can last a few seconds to sev-
eral minutes.


A ..
Healthier
Life

with Katrina Elsken
Muscle cramps are involun-
tary muscle contractions. They
can be caused by nerve damage
such as a spinal cord injury or
a pinched nerve in the neck or
back. Other common causes of
muscle cramps include straining
over overusing a muscle, pro-
longed sitting, dehydration, or a


lack of minerals in your body.
To relieve a muscle cramp, the
NIH suggests gently massaging
the muscle, gently stretching the
muscle, or taking a hot shower or
hot bath to relax the muscle.
To prevent nocturnal leg
cramps, the NIH recommends
staying hydrated by drinking
eight glasses of water of day, eat-
ing a balanced diet and getting
regular exercise. Because muscle
cramps are sometimes related to
a potassium deficiency, eating a
banana every day may help pre-
vent them.
Gently stretching your leg mus-
cles before you go to bed may
also help. To stretch the muscles,
sit with your leg extended and al-


ternately point your toes and flex
your ankles.
If you suffer from frequent
muscle cramps, consult your
doctor. Muscle cramps' may be
related to a number of other
medical conditions. Blood tests
may be necessary to determine
the cause of the cramps and the
best treatment.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important if
you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

TALLAHASSEE - The Flor-
'ida Public Service Commission
I (PSC) today approved new rules
'to benefit customers eligible for
Lifeline Assistance (Lifeline) ser-
vice by expediting the process
to enroll them in the program.
Lifeline provides discounts of
,$162 annually to eligible Flo-
:ridians for telephone service.
A state agency that determines a
'person is eligible for Lifeline ser-
,vice is also required by Florida
'statute to immediately forward


the information to the PSC for au-

50,000 application mark. In the
automatic enrollment process,
applicants for programs admin-
istered by the Department of
Children and Families (DCF) are

A child plants a child's garden


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
Once upon a time, there was a
little girl who lived in a little town
with her mommy and daddy.
One fall when the little girl was
about three years old, she saw her
mommy digging holes in front
of the bushes beside the house.
She watched as she walked over
to see. After her mommy dug the
hole, she dropped a funny-look-
ing little round-ish brown thing
into the hole, then covered it with
soil and moved on to the next
one. There was a brown bag on
the lawn and she had taken the
brown thing out of it.
"What are you doing, Mom-
my?" the little girl asked.
"I'm planting flower bulbs,"
her mommy answered.
"But they're dead and you cov-
ered them all up," she protested.
"Oh, Sweetie," said her mom-
my, "these are bulbs and in the
spring they will push up with
bright, green leaves. Then in a
little while, they will bloom with
wonderful yellow flowers."
"Oh!" said the little girl.
Several weeks later, the family
drove to visit the little girl's aunt
who lived in a nearby town. As
they drove along the windey coun-
try roads, the little girl watched
out the window. They passed a
large cemetery near a church.
"What is that with all the stones
sitting up?" the little girl asked.
"That's a cemetery, honey," her
daddy responded. "When people

Barnyard
die, their families bury them in
the cemetery and put a big stone
up with the person's name, birth-
day, and the day they died on the
stone so they'll always remember
them.
The little girl said nothing for a
long time.
"In the spring, then what, Dad-
dy?" she asked.
The next May, when it was
the little girl's birthday, her god-
parents gave her a basket of little
plants to plant for her very own
garden. Daddy helped. He cut out
the grass with a shovel in a circle.
Then he dug down and turned
over the soil. The two of them
raked it smooth. They took two
trowels and dig holes. Then they
tucked in each plant and poured
water in with it from the metal
watering can that had a sprayer
spout, just like the shower in their
bathroom. When the water had
soaked in, they gently pushed dirt
in around the plant and patted it
down firm.
"Plants get their food from the
dirt they grow in," said Daddy. "So
we push it in so the plant doesn't
get hungry."
The little girl liked that idea.
She did not like to be too hungry.
There were pink petunias,
white sweet alyssum, little bright
blue flowers Daddy said was blue
daze and some bright yellow

hunting in jeopardy. In addition,
programs already in place, such
as those for panthers, manatees
and other imperiled species,
would need funding to keep pace
with increased costs.
FWC hired Southwick Associ-
ates, a private firm specializing
in fish-and-wildlife economics,
to determine the impact from an
increase in fees.
"The optimal price for each
sport fishing and hunting license
issued was scientifically deter-
mined," Mr. Wattendorf said.
"Consideration for the increase
included the effect on angling and
hunting participation, customer
satisfaction, tourism and public
support for conservation."
However, the new fees were
kept to the minimum necessary
to offset the projected deficit,
rather than at a level that would
maximize revenue. Compared to
the price of movies, golf, bowling
and other forms of recreation,
fishing and hunting fees remain
very affordable, especially when
viewed as an unlimited, year-
round privilege, Mr. Wattendorf
said.
. FWC also carefully consid-
ered the impact on federal aid
for sport fishing anrd wildlife res-
toration, which comes to Florida


marigolds.
.When they were done, there
was still some space along one
edge.
"Well," said Daddy, "should
we just leave that as it is?"
The little girl frowned.
"No. I'd like to plant some
strawberries, like those in your
garden. Can I please have a few,
what did you call those little ones
at the end of the long stems that
come from the plants, 'runners"
"Why, sure." said her Daddy.
So they went over and together,
cut enough of the new runner
plants to fill the empty spot.
They looked.
"Now, it's a real garden," they
both said. And laughed.
So you see, a child's garden
is very simple. The plants men-
tioned grow well and quickly
without too much care. Sunflow-
ers are wonderful for really little
children. They sprout in days, not
weeks. (Good for short attention
spans.) Then they grow so big
and tall and they make sunflower
seed that your child can feed to
the birds. Seed that "I grew it'my-
self!"
Easy and quick to sprout and
grow are radishes and lettuce.
Gourds and pumpkins take longer
but you can make jack-o-lanterns
from the pumpkins and dry the
gourds, then paint them for deco-
rations or cut a round hole on one
side for a bird house.
The next best thing for child to
grow is whatever food or fruit he
loves. (If it will grow here!)


Hunting and fishing fees change


Beginning Oct. 1, a new fee
schedule went into effect for all
recreational licenses issued by
the Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC).
During its 2007 session, the
Florida Legislature passed a bill
to increase the fees for all recre-
ational saltwater and freshwa-
ter fishing and hunting licenses.
Hunting license fees were last
increased in 1979 and fishing li-
cense fees in 1989.
Bob Wattendorf, who heads
up marketing in the FWC's Di-
vision of Freshwater Fisheries
Management, said, "When fees
for fishing licenses were last in-
creased, in 1989, gasoline cost
89 cents a gallon. But even with
the new fee increases, the cost
of hunrhing and fihirg in Florida
r falls below the median costs for
the other 49 states. Also the per-
centage of increase is well below
the rise in the cost of living seen
since 1989."
All the fees from these licenses
go back into conserving fish and
wildlife resources and benefit an-
glers and hunters.
The increased revenue, ex-
pected to total $10 million an-
nually within four years, will not
create new programs, but will
offset a predicted $12.5-million
deficit by 2010, said Sandra Wil-
son, director of finance and bud-
get at FWC. In addition to issuing
the licenses, FWC is charged with
.directly conserving fish and wild-
life resources, and it creates and
enforces rules and regulations re-
garding hunting and fishing in the
state as well as promoting boat-
ing safety and access.
Florida remains the number-
one fishing destination in the
United States, according to the
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service's
2006 national survey. In addition,
Florida ranks number-one in the
nation for its $11 billion generat-
ed annually through hunting, fish-
ing and wildlife-viewing activities
throughout the state.
FWC presented its findings to
the Legislature earlier this year.
The projected deficit would leave
revenue streams for marine fish-
eries, freshwater fisheries and


based on the certified number of
hunting and fishing license hold-
ers and size of the state. Further
research consisted of consulting
focus groups and surveying in-
dividual hunters and fishermen
across Florida. With all of these
findings before them, legislators
voted to increase the fees, begin-
ning Oct. 1. As a result, programs
in danger of losing funding, such
as freshwater hatcheries, law en-
forcement patrols and saltwater
fisheries stock assessments, will
be able to continue at current lev-
els of service.
"It will allow our habitat resto-
ration, fish stocking, law enforce-
ment and outreach programs
to continue without cuts," Wat-
tendorf said. "We can't guaran-
tee that some things won't be
trimmed in the future, but the
expectation is the license fee in-
creases will prevent us from go-
ing backwards."
Recreational licenses may be
purchased online at MyFWC.com,
or by calling 1-888-FISH FLORIDA
(347-4356) or 1-888-HUNT FLORI-
DA (486-8356), or from numerous
sporting goods retailers and at tax
collectors' offices. If licenses are
not purchased at tax collectors'
offices, additional processing fees
will be applied.

School Happenings


Eastside Elementary
Eastside's Pineland: Fall has
arrived, and there has been much
debate about Eastside's pineland.
You might be questioning your-
self what is going in front of our
school. Well, in short, Eastside
is trying to nurture a
pineland into exis-
tence where there
was just last
year only [
dusty, barren
ground.
If you find
yourself ask-
ing, "why,"
the answer s that we would like
our students to have the oppor-
tunity to experience this type of
habitat, which no longer exists in
Clewiston.
Historically, pinelands were the
most common type of ecosystem
found in south Florida. Presently,
they are being destroyed rapidly
due to human development all
over south Florida. The dominant
species 'of this ecosystem is the
Slash Pine (Pinus elliotti). Two
types of palms are also commonly
found in this ecosystem, the Saw
Palmetto and Cabbage Palm. Ad-
ditionally, a multitude of critical
under story plants, some of which
people consider, "weeds," can be
found growing throughout South
Florida's pineland communities.
The unique combination of these
plants provide shelter and food
for varied inhabitants, such as
panthers, black bears, butterflies,
various birds, frogs, lizards, rac-
coons, armadillos, squirrels, and
a many other small creatures.
Most importantly, remember
pinelands are excellent carbon
dioxide filters that help to keep
our air oxygenated and clean!
Our pineland has now been
growing for five months. The Sci-
ence Club began their studies in
the pineland last week by learning
about what it really means to nur-
ture a pineland. We have learned
that weeds are plants that grow
thick where not wanted or a per-
son's perception of a plant that
doesn't belong. "Weeds" play a
vital role in a pineland ecosystem.
When weeds flower, they are
nectar sources for the bottom of
the animal food chain for all eco-
systems. The flowers supply en-
ergy to the insects that feed birds
and other small animals, which
in. turn feed the larger predators
in an ecosystem. Without weeds
an ecosystem is not limited in its'
potential for diversity, but frankly
is sterile in most aspects.
In addition to learning about
the important parts of an eco-


system, members of the Science
Club are applying both Math
and Science standards through
their work in the pineland. SCH.
1.2 (the student uses the sci-
entific processes and habits of
mind to solve problems) and
MA.E.3.2.1.5.1 (student designs a
survey to collect and record data)
are being targeted this week.
Naturally, other Math and Science
standards such as MA.A.1.2.1.5.1
(Reads, writes and identifies
whole numbers), MA.D.1.2.1.5.1
(Describes, extends, creates,
predicts, and generalizes numeri-
cal and geometric patterns), and
SC.A.1.2.1 (determines that the
properties of materials that can
be compared and measured)
are being addressed through our
work as a consequence of our
"hands on" activities.

A very inspira-
tional story being read by third
graders is "The Olympic Games:
Where Heroes Are Made" by
Nicolas Camacho. This non-fic-
tion book discusses the history
of the Olympic Games, and in-
cludes brief biographies about
several athletes who became
Olympic gold medalists and stars
in track and field and swimming
events. The students really en-
joyed reading this story!
One of the books read by
fifth graders is "We'll Never For-
get You, Roberto Clemente" by
Trudie Engel. It. is a well-written
story about one of the greatest
professional baseball players of
all time, Roberto Clemente. In
addition to being an outstanding
baseball player, Roberto Clem-
ente also helped many people in
need, including victims of a hor-
, rific earthquake in Nicaragua. He
'planned on establishing a sports

else.
Although they knew each oth-
er, and were on friendly terms, it
wouldn't be until one of the most
tragic points in Ms. Quesada's life
that the two would prove just how
united they were.
Ms. Petersen still remembers
the day.
She had on a trip when a close
friend of hers called her to tell her
that Ms. Quesada's son had been
in an accident but was expected
to be okay. Later, she received
word that something had gone
terribly wrong and the outlook
was not so good.
In the halls of the room where
she was staying, a group of offi-


cers overheard the commotion,
while Ms. Petersen argued about
the boy's status. When they heard
that she needed to get to the air-
port, they told her not to worry.
"There will be a car waiting
for you outside," they told her, re-
membered Ms. Petersen.
"I prayed on that flight, 'Lord,.
please give me the word.'"
She thought about it all the
way home.
"One of the hardest times in
my life was when I lost my 16-
year-old son," Ms. Quesada re-
membered. "Kristen knew him
growing up."
Ms. Petersen was his teacher,
according to Ms. Quesada, and
when she would come over to
the house, she would leave little
notes for him:
"Don't pick your nose in class,"
the notes would read. -


When the accident happened,
Ms. Quesada remembered, Ms.
Petersen immediately reacted.
"This happened Friday, the
first of February, 2002, and she
was here Saturday," Ms. Quesada
said.
The experience united them.
Ms. Petersen is sometimes
viewed in less than glamorous
terms because of her role as sec-
ond in command at the police de-
partment. She shouldn't be, she
said, she's only a "grandma who
carries a gun."
The truth is that Ms. Petersen
is a strong woman. The victim
of domestic abuse, Ms. Petersen
has had to find her way ... many
times alone.
Years before, she suffered qui-
etly after doctors diagnosed her
with a form of Cancer. She didn't
tell anyone even as she under-


went experimental treatment be-
cause she didn't have insurance.
She didn't tell her family or her
closest friends, even though many
in her family have passed away to
Cancer. When she found out, Ms.
Quesada was there for her.
In many areas, police and
sheriff's offices don't always see
eye-to-eye. In Clewiston, the two
work as one. It may be because of
the duo's close friendship, indeed,
Ms. Petersen said it has a lot to do
with it.
It isn't all fun, though, and the
two say that moving up the ranks
in the world of law enforcement
has been difficult at times.
"I don't think it's been easy for
us, this is still very Much a man's
world today," said Ms. Quesada.
The two flat-out reject any no-
tion of there ever being a Police
Chief Petersen, or a Sheriff Que-


sada.
But as with anything, all good
things must come to an end -- and
an end to the degree that the two
are close seems to be looming in
the distance.
Ms. Petersen is looking for-
ward to retirement soon, and she
has plans of moving to Maine.
When?
"I hope by the time I'm 60. No
one in my family lived past 70."
She'll take up knitting and
quilting, her favorite hobby, and
should remember the times she
used the craft to give back to the
community. According to Ms.
Quesada, Ms. Petersen would of-
ten collect prom dresses for girls
who couldn't afford them and tai-
lor them to their need.
They'll visit, but perhaps they'll
have to come to the realization
that they won't see each other as


often.
So they are asked to describe
each other and what they know of
each other.
"Her faith in God is something
you don't see often," said Ms:
Quesada of her friend. "Is there
one word to describe who she is?
There isn't."
"She's very patient, a very kind
lady," said Ms. Petersen. "She can
lay down the law and have people
say, 'thank you.'"
As the interview continues, the
two suddenly express an inter-
est in the way the story will turn
out, and they push to see the final
form before it's published.
"I knowwe will," Ms. Quesada
said. "We carry guns."

Five tips to reduce 'body clutter'


Today I got on the scale and
discovered my weight is at an all
time low; lower than I was even
two years ago after my big initial
body clutter loss. It was a poi-
gnant moment to see a goal be-
come reality.
I have to tell you, this body
clutter loss came with some sweat
equity! But it also came about
with an increasing awareness of
putting in what I plan to burn and
making sure the fire was stoked
enough to keep my metabolism
going, but not too much. It's al-
ways about balance, isn't it?
Anyway, I've shared some
tricks with you in the past (like my
soup fix trick, water, et al), but I
have some more that I've been
discovering that have been real
lifesavers and have helped me
navigate through some plateaus
and temptations to just give up.
Try these yourself:
* Egg Beaters: I am totally
protein driven. If I eat enough
protein, I'm a happy camper and
I know that's true for a lot of fly-
babies. I adore eggs, but they can
really add up to a lot of calories.
My solution? Egg Beaters. They're
mostly egg whites and they taste
great: Years ago I tried them and
they were GROSS! They must
have reformulated them because
now they're delicious, just like


. The Dinner

' Ely


regular scrambled eggs and I
eat a 1/2 cup of them for only 60
calories with just a smidge of fat
and carbs! Throw some salsa on
there, and you're good to go.
* Fiber patrol: Honestly, if you
can get 30-35 grams of fiber in a
day, you will not feel hungry, you'll
have better bowel habits (sorry
for the potty talk, but it's true!)
and you will be naturally inclined
to eat less resulting in a reduction
of body clutter. I eat kashi cereal
in the morning (1 cup equals only
170 calories, but 12 whopping
grams of fiber). I love this stuff
and try to eat a bowl in the morn-
ing at least 3 times a week.
* Marinate: If you're doing
lean protein most of the time,
you need to get some flavor from
somewhere. The fat is gone. So
marinate it. You can marinate
with store-bought teriyaki sauce
or anything else that suits your


fancy. You can't mess up a mari-
nade, just discover a new flavor!
* Grill crazy: I grill everything
from meat, chicken, fish and ev-
ery veggie in between. I've done
pineapple on the grill even. If you
marinate first, then grill, you'll be
even happier. There is nothing like
grilled veggies, honest. If you don't
like veggies, try grilling them.
* Oil where it counts: I use
very little in stir frying or sauteing,
instead relying on a little chicken
broth to help keep things moist-
ened up. What I have found is if I
use other no fat ingredients to get
the flavor going, I can use the oil
later for flavor. I will drizzle a little
toasted sesame seed oil on the
top of my stir fry for flavor. When
I make salads, I use Wishbone's
spray salad dressings (they're all
great Asian is my personal fave)
and then I'll add a teaspoon of ex-
tra virgin olive oil on top of the sal-
ad and it's like I never skimped.

Drowning in chaos? Find a lifeline


Do you ever feel like you are
drowning? And you are going
down for the last time and, no
one is there to save you! In fact
the whirlpool is about to suck
you into the dark abyss. This is
how we all feel when we are liv-
ing in CHAOS! The whirlpool is
the vicious cycle we are living in
and we don't know how to stop
it! You can't even remember how
you got into the dangerous waters
in the first place!
I can tell you exactly why! Pro-
crastination! You didn't want to
look at the problem so you put it
off. You probably still don't want
to address the issues, that are
drowning you! But we do this ev-
ery single day.
You see it is not one thing that
is pulling you under it is all the
things that got our homes in the
shape they are in! Every thing is
connected and one thing starts
getting sucked into the whirlpool
the rest will follow! UNLESS you
start to pull your own self out one
bad habit at a time. I know you
don't believe me, but as strange
as it ,may seem, FLYing can give
you the life preservers when noth-
ing else will!
We put off paying bills! We
put off buying groceries! We put
off planning menus! We put off
doing our taxes! You name it we
can find a way and an excuse for
putting it off! We have to stop this
right now! Just stopping one thing
will keep your head above water.

Wednesday is always Anti-pro-
crastination day, menu planning
day and clean out the refrigerator
day. Look at what taking care of
these things will do for this whirl-
pool you have gotten yourself into.
With the refrigerator cleaned out,
you can see what food you need
to buy, what you need to use up
and what leftovers can be used in
a pot of soup. Just the act of doing
it starts your mind thinking about
menus and a grocery list. While
you are cleaning out the refrigera-
tor, keep your grocery list handy
so you can jot down a few ideas
for next week's meals.
Now after you have cleaned
out the refrigerator, sit down with
a cup of tea for 10 minutes and
think about what you can cook
next week. Having groceries in the
house is half the battle to cooking.
When you don't have it on hand it
is just much easier to call for pizza
or takeout! Which is why you are
gaining weight and losing money;
could this be a reason you are in
the whirlpool in the first place?


Think about the life preserver of
just cleaning out the refrigerator:
could this be the key to not falling
into the abyss! -
You have it in your head that
menu planning it going to take a
long time, it is hard or that you
have people that won't eat what
you cook. Your excuse are just
another from of whining and pro-
crastination. If the truth be told,
menu planning only takes a few
minutes if you will do it. Eventu-
ally you will have several week's
worth of menus and grocery lists
that you can recycle and not even
have to go through this process
except to clean out the refrigera-
tor so you won't forget to utilize
some produce.
Cleaning out the refrigerator
along with menu planning saves
you money! This is money that
can be used to pull yourself out
of this whirlpool. You have to start
someplace! So go clean out your
refrigerator!
My hand is out; grab it and we
will FLY together

Why church?



'I can do it alone'


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I've been invited from time to
time to join other churches. My
question is response is "What do
you have to offer?" Usually, I don't
really get any answer. When any
answer is forthcoming, I have al-
ways been able to reply that noth-
ing will be added to what I already
have. That is because I am part of
an 'institution" - a church.
The Church provides; ,keeps
me up-to-date; gives answers'
when I search for them, keeps me
from going off on tangents or be-
ing side-tracked.
In later years, the word "in-
stitution" has come to have bad
connotations; as someone put it
"Nobody wants to live in an insti-
tution!" (That comment is often
reserved for the "institution of
marriage" - but people keep going
back to it.) What then does "insti-
tutional religion" offer? It is simply
that we don't have to "re-invent
the wheel" each time we want
to worship, seek an answer, look
for guidance, search for values or
grow in faith. The institution is the
repository of the wisdom of the
ages; what has been learned and
what has been given to us. It is
through the process of research-
ing (or "re-searching") what has
been handed down to us that we
grow, see new applications of old
truths, come to new understand-
ings of what God is doing in His
world today and learn to correct
the errors of the past and build for
the future. This is no solitary job.
We had someone at one of
our Bible Study groups who com-
mented as we gathered "I just
wouldn't have come to this (in-
sight) by reading the Bible alone."
She was right. It is in our joint work
together that special illuminations
come. The institutional religion
of the Lord's day had its' history
and tradition; Jesus said, "Do not
think that I have come to abolish
the law or the prophets, I have not
come to abolish them but to fulfill
them (Matthew 5:17)." He did not
tell people to go off in isolation
and study on their own, or pray by
themselves, but Jesus was to be

the founder of a "Church." (Mat-
thew 16:18 - "On this rock I will
build my Church...") His disciples
received their power and commis-
sion "when they were all together
in one place..(Acts 2:1)" and the
followers "devoted themselves
to the apostle's fellowship (Acts
2:42)." In other words, they didn't
do any of it alone; the "fellowship-
Church-institution" was a source
of strength. Even through their
travels and isolation, they kept in
touch and drew from the strength
of their lello%% ship
Where, me early Christians had
controversies,, they would gather
in counsels and seek their answers
together; work and pray together,
discern what the Lord was saying
to them as His family and body.
History shows that we do our best
as a part of a community-fellow-
ship-body-group-"institution." It is
through the work of the body that
new life comes; it keeps us from
just being a "society for the pres-
ervation of the ideals of the dead
rabbi!" It is in the body that real life
resides. Just as our human bodies
require nourishment to continue
to live, and the body cannot feed
on itself for any length of time,
neither can the spiritual body. Our
spiritual bodies require nourish-
ment and refreshment too. When
I hear someone say "I can do it
myself" I don't know what they do
to keep from getting all wrapped
up in their own ideas or how they'
keep growing and how they ben-
efit from all that God has revealed
to His people over all of the ages.
Not too long ago, some of our
sciences gave way from being
"specialized" to taking a holistic
approach" to bring advances. It
is through collaboration, sharing,
seeing how things and systems
work together that the greatest
advances are made. It's that way
with faith too. In spite of our love
to say "I can do it by myself," we
rely on others. That's all right - the
Lord designed it that way. It works
- the whole is greater than the
sum of the parts; the fellowship is
greater than all of the disconnect-
ed individuals, the Church has a
special place for each of us.
An 'institution?' Yes, in many
ways and thanks be to God for it.

God, where will I be in eternity?


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Every person's greatest con-
cern is the final destiny of the
soul. Everyday problems demand
attention, but these fade into insig-
nificance when we ask ourselves,
"Where will I be in eternity?"
There are two parts to this an-
sw\er: God's part and man's part.
God has already done His part by
,.. 1,,, ._ Christ into the world, and
by giving us the New Testament.
Christ came to save sinners (I
Tim. 1:15). This is what Christian-
ity is all about. It is for the salva-
tion of your soul. "What shall it
-i.nt a man, if he shall gain the
whole world, and lose his own
soul?" (Mark 8:36).
Man does have a part in his
salvation, for though Christ died
for all, only those who obey Him
will be saved (Hebrews 5:9). Your


response to the commands of
Christ in the New Testament is
your part in salvation. Faith comes
by hearing the word of God (Ro-
mans 10:17).
Faith will cause you to accept
Christ as the Son of God (John
8:24). Faith in Christ will cause
you to repent of your sins (Acts
17:30). Faith in Christ will cause
you to confess Him before men
(Matthew 10:32-33). Faith in
Christ will cause you to immersed
in water (baptized) for the remis-
sion of your sins (Mark 16:15-16,
Acts 2:38). A continuing faith in
Christ will cause you to live a life
that pleases God in all things (Acts
2:42; II Cor. 5:9).
The Lord adds to the Church
those who obey the gospel (Acts
2:47). You cannot join the Church
revealed in the Bible; the Lord can
only add you. The logical question

Students and their families really enjoyed the recent Book
Fair event at Central Elementary. Thank you to Miss Bald-
win, Mrs. Gary and all of the staff, parents and volunteers
who worked hard to make this event a great success.


to ask next would be, "Are you a
member of the church you can
read about in the bible?"
Why not be "just a Christian?"
In the multiplicity of religions,
some people conclude that none
are right and settle down in leth-
argy. Others, weary of the prob-
lems, settle for some "infallible"
or popular church or man. Still
others say, "I'm going to shop
around - if and when I find the
right one, I'll make a move." Of
course, no one would ever live
long enough to examine carefully
the hundreds of cults which ex-
ist.
May we present a better,
more direct way? The true an-
swer to life's greatest questions is
summed up in one word, CHRIST.
A Christian is one who belongs to
Christ. The "Ian" at the end of the
word signifies "belonging to", as


an American belongs to America.
Why not be justt a Christian"?
Obedience to God's Word will
make you a Christian, nothing
more or less.
A Christian has access to all
truth. Any truth which a Christian
finds he may accept and pro-
claim. He does not need to sift
through the chaff of men's theo-
ries. In Christ he has all he needs.
It is his privilege to search the rich
mine of truth. Christ Jesus, "in
whom are hid ALL the treasures
of wisdom and knowledge" (Co-
lossians 2:3).
By the same token, a Christian
does not say, "I am right", but
he says "Christ is right, the Bible
is right." He has nothing to "har-
monize" or explain away, no hu-
man creed to defend, no "axe to
grind". His obedience to the truth
has made him free (John 8:32)!


Students and their families all enjoyed the recent Central El-
ementary Book Fair. Thank you to Miss Baldwin, Mrs. Gary,
and all of the staff, parents, and volunteers who worked
help helped to make this event a great success.


Humpty Dumpty


and Dr. God


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Humpty Dumpty sat on a
wall; Humpty Dumpty had a
great fall. All the king's horses
and all the king's men couldn't
put Humpty together again.
Have you ever had a Humpty
Dumpty experience? Most of
us have. Al-
most everyone
knows what
it feels like "'
to have our f.
dreams, our
lives, our goals,
our health, . -
our family, our .'. -
friendships, or John
even our very Hicks
being shattered
beyond repair. All of the king's
horses and all of the king's men
couldn't put the broken pieces
together again.
Our faith tells us that God
can fix anything. He is the super
God with super glue. God, who
is in the broken bread, who of-
fers himself up to be broken on
a cross, throws nothing away.
God abandons no one and can
do what all the king's horses and
all the king's men could never
do - put Humpty Dumpty back
together again.
The first Sunday in October
is World Communion Sunday.
Throughout the world, churches
of all denominations, in all na-
tions, and in many languages,
will celebrate the Lord's Sup-
per. It could not have come at
a better time. We need this time
together to remember that God
so. loved the world that He gave
His only begotten Son. He did
this not only for you and me,
but for our neighbors next door,
our neighbors across the street
and our neighbors around the


world.
The bread on the altar is a
reminder that God walked with
us, that God was broken with
us and that God weeps with us.
When we come to the table and
break the bread, it is to remem-
ber that we are never alone in
our trials, in our tribulations, in
our temptations.
I don't know about you, but
I've had a rough couple of weeks
and I need to come to the Lord's
table. I need to remember that
God knows me and loves me
anyway. I need to remember
that God has experienced all of
my human suffering and all of
my human fear. I need to taste
the bread and smell the juice and
let them remind me that God sat
with disciples like you and me
and tried to tell them that even
though the night might seem
long, morning would come. I
need to hear the words again;
remember Me, remember my
promises, remember My love.
This meal of broken bread
which we celebrate is a remem-
brance of a meal long ago, but
it is also a call, an invitation,
a summons to bring our very
present troubles and give them
to God. We can bring our bro-
kenness to this table and leave
it here, and God will lovingly
receive and fix it. He will put all
of the pieces back 'together and
restore us. God makes the bro-
ken whole. That's why I need to
come to the table. It's why you
need to come as well. It is here
for all. It is not a matter of being
worthy, for all have sinned and
fallen short of the glory of God.
It's a matter of being willing to
come and receive what is freely
offered: A body broken for us,
blood shed for us, love poured
out for us. These are what will
make us whole again.

Tiger Cheerleaders present a half-time routine at last week's game


Tigers blasted by Delray



American Heritage


By Jeff Barwick
Just when you might
think things couldn't get
much worse for Clew-
iston, they did. Friday
night the Tigers hosted
Delray American Heri-


tage and got hammered
by a score of 56-0. It was
the most points allowed
and the worst loss in Ti-
ger records dating back
to 1951. The loss left
Clewiston winless in five
starts and you have to go
back to 1965 to find a Ti-
ger s'quuad %\ ith'a'sirmllat
start.
The showing was
a big letdown for the
Tigers and their fans.
Coming off a respect-
able showing against
powerhouse Glades
Central and facing a
Class 1A opponent in
the Stallions, the Tigers
were never in the con-
test. Clewiston was se-
riously handicapped by
the loss of four starters
-- Delvin Hughes, Colin
Ricketts, Adam Trevino
and Ryan Gutshall -- and
then lost Zack Waddell
early in the first period.
Hughes was serving the
second of his two-game
suspension by the Flori-
da High School Athletic
Association for having
been ejected from the
Glades Day game. The
others were injured in
the Glades Central game
with Gutshall, the Tigers
most consistent offen-
sive lineman this year,
likely out for the year due
to a knee injury. Waddell
suffered a shoulder inju-
ry and will probably be
out of action for at least
a week, pending a more
complete medical evalu-
ation.
Offensively, the Ti-
gers managed only 83
yards rushing on 30
snaps, with most of
that coming in the final
quarter under a run-
ning clock and against
Stallion substitutes. The
Tigers' passing attack
was worse, coming up
with only seven yards
on one completion on
nine attempts. Junior
tailback Darris Hughes,
without much block-
ing managed to gain 76
hard-earned yards on 18
carries. He also gained
104 yards on 5 kickoff
returns.
Defensively, line-
backer Alex Rubio had
11 tackles and end Wil-


lie Armstrong, double
teamed most of the
night, came up with 8
tackles.
The Stallions im-
proved their record to 3-
1 and moved the ball at
will all night against the
out manned Clewiston
defense ' Qjuarterb-,qlk
Justin Feagin i usKed i61
three touchdowns and
passed for two more
to senior flanker Domi-
nique Battle. Battle also
picked off an errant pass
from Tiger quarterback
Isandro Marquez arid
returned it 55 yards for
another score.
"We were outgunned
and outmatched all
night long," said Tigers
coach Larry Antonacci.
"Our team needs to find
their hearts for football.
We played tonight with
no heart and no desire.
You can't win football
games with five or six
kids playing and the rest
just along for the ride."
Clewiston begins its
divisional competition
this week as .they host
the Cardinal Newman
Crusaders. The Tigers
are really in need of a
win and the Crusaders
enter the game with
a 2-2 record, but both
of their victories came
against teams with no
wins.
