Hendry County Sheriff's Office
(HCSO) deputies arrived, wit-

from the wounds he sustained in
the attack.

CLEWISTON - Recognizing
that achievement in academics
and athletics should be high-
lighted, Clewiston High School
is placing much of its focus on
rewarding those students who


go above and beyond in their
daily work.
Currently, the school offers
two programs that aim to cite
student achievement. Students
who are selected for either are
treated very well at the school
and are encouraged to push
further, according to Principal
Dr. Robert Egley
. Dr. Egley is especially happy
with the student and athlete of
the month program. Teachers
throughout the school nomi-


nate individuals they feel have
met the criteria of exemplary
work and good conduct.
Last week, the principal
was preparing to take four spe-
cial students to lunch at Beef
O'Brady's.
"They can order anything off
the menu, so long as it's not an
alcoholic beverage," the princi-
pal joked.

police believe the shooting was,
"A result of a dispute over a drug
transaction."
After police caught up with
him at the airport, Joseph was
taken to Miami-Dade Jail where
he is being held without bond.
The investigation and the
search for the second suspect
continues.

Clewiston

man killed

in wreck

Slick road conditions
may have
caused wreck
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
PALM-BEACH - Florida High-
way Patrol officials say that a rain-
slicked road last Saturday and
poor tires may have been respon-
sible for causing a wreck that left
a Clewiston man dead.
The accident happened at
about 6 a.m. that day, just south
of the Hendry County line in Palm
Beach County.
According to Lt. Tim Frith, with
Palm Beach FHP office, the man,
David Eaves Jr., 40, of Clewiston,
was on his way to work on U.S.
27 when he veered off the road-
way on the left shoulder.
The vehicle, a 2004 Nissan
pickup, overturned and the driver,
who officials say was not wear-
ing his seatbelt at the time, was
ejected from the vehicle.
Emergency workers were un-
able to help the man, who was
pronounced dead shortly after
the call arrived.
"Unfortunately, it occurs very
often," Lt. Frith said of the fact
that the driver was not properly
secured in his vehicle during the
accident.
The officials said that the
stretch of road has proven deadly
in the past, mostly because of the
thick morning fog, but that has
since tapered off.
This recent accident may
have been the result of the poor
condition of the tires that were
mounted on the vehicle, the of-
ficial said.
"He had just left home, was
on his way to work," Lt. Frith said.
"This was just a very unfortunate
single vehicle accident."

Losing a pet hard Florida approved for AGR-Lite crop insurance


on pet owners


COLLEGE STATION - An
old saying notes that all dogs
go to heaven and if that's true,
it's one trip pet owners want to
postpone as long as possible.
What happens when our
dearly loved friends take a turn
for the worse, and what is the
most appropriate way to deal
with the loss of a pet?
Lucy Wendt, a registered vet-
erinary technician in the Small
Animal Clinic at the Texas A&M
University College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical Sci-
ences, says that "our responses
can range from 'normal grief' to
extreme pathological states that
require a psychologist, psychia-
trist or counselor."
There is no cookie-cutter lev-
el of grief that a person may feel
upon losing a pet, Ms. Wendt
adds. The grief will vary depend-
ing on many factors, but one
thing remains the same: losing
a pet hurts.
To help relieve some of this
pain, Ms. Wendt offers these
words of advice. "First, a per-
son has to accept the reality of
the loss. Try not to deny that the
pet has passed -- denial will only
extend the healing process," Ms.
Wendt says.
"Also, the pet owner should
experience the pain of the loss.
Try not to deny what you are
feeling and allow yourself to
mourn the loss of your loved
pet. If the owner does not face
the reality of the pain involved it


Pet Talk

may manifest itself in other ways
in their lives (i.e. physical symp-
toms or unusual behavior)."
Next, Ms. Wendt explains, is
to "adjust to the environment
without the pet. Notice and ac-
cept that when you do certain
activities your pet is no longer
present."
Finally, Ms. Wendt recom-
mends that mourners "with-
draw emotional energy from the
dead pet and reinvest that en-
ergy in other relationships and
activities. Try not to fixate on the
loss of a pet, try to 'get on' with
living and loving." If you find
yourself at the end of these steps
and are still not recovering from
the loss, Wendt suggests the
website www.petloss.com. She
adds that it is important to be
around people who understand
what you are going through.
The people in a support group
may have helpful advice to help
you overcome your loss, she
believes. When the grief of los-
ing a pet has passed, the next
big question enters your mind:
should I get another pet? Ms.
Wendt believes that if you desire
a new pet and not just a replace-
ment for the deceased one, then
it is healthy to acquire a new pet.
"Try to choose a different breed
or a different sex, anything that
is different from the deceased
pet," Ms. Wendt recommends.


Citrus grower asks

Congress to fix ag labor


LAKELAND - If Congress
doesn't fix the country's agricul-
tural labor problem thousands
of family farms and the nation's
domestic food supply are at risk,
a Florida citrus grower told the
House Agriculture Committee
today.
Mason Smoak, a third gen-
eration citrus grower from Lake
Placid, told members of the
House Agriculture Committee
that a legal, reliable labor force
is imperative for the future of ag-
riculture.
Mr. Smoak, an active mem-
ber of Florida Citrus Mutual,
was invited to Washington by
Congressman Tim Mahoney of
Florida who serves on the Com-
mittee.
"My family understands it is
essential to have legal, reliable
workers harvesting our crops
and helping put orange juice on
breakfast tables across Amer-
ica," Mr. Smoak said. "Please,
believe me when I tell you that
we want legal workers. I'll reiter-
ate: We want legal workers."
Mr. Smoak's grandfather
started his family's citrus busi-
ness on 10 acres in 1933. The
business has grown to over
3,100 acres of citrus and 13,000
acres of cattle ranchland and
wildlife conservation areas.
Mr. Smoak also told the Com-
mittee having reliable, legal la-
bor to harvest crops such as cit-
rus is a national security issue.
"If Florida's citrus crop is left
in the grove to rot because of a
labor shortage then our Nation's
citrus production will eventu-


ally shift entirely to Central and
South America," Mr. Smoak
said. "The importance of main-
taining a safe, affordable and
abundant domestic food sup-
ply is something many Ameri-
cans care deeply about and is
something I know growers care
deeply about also. Shifting food-
production from our shores to
overseas could compromise
food security and in-turn home-
land security."
Michael W. Sparks, executive
VP/CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual,
said Smoak's comments.mirror
the thoughts of thousands of
Florida citrus growers.
"There are thousands of cit-
rus growers in Florida just like
Mason Smoak whose family
businesses are in jeopardy be-
cause they cannot find the legal
labor they need. The current sys-
tem is broken from top to bot-
tom and we need to fix it. Our
industry wants legal workers,"
Mr. Sparks said. "As an industry
we are disappointed that our
best efforts toward comprehen-
sive immigration reform failed
to pass this year. We are going
to continue to work hard so that
some kind of solution is eventu-
ally crafted."
Florida Citrus Mutual, found-
ed in 1948 and based in Lake-
land, is the state's largest citrus
growers' organization with
more than 8,000 grower mem-
bers. The Florida citrus industry
employs 90,000 people and has
a $9 billion economic impact.

TALLAHASSEE - Florida Ag-

Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son announced Oct. 5 that Florida
has been approved to have Adjust-
ed Gross Revenue - Lite (whole
farm) crop insurance made avail-
able beginning in the 2008 Crop
year. USDA's Risk Management
Agency (RMA), Deputy Admin-

approval of RMA's expansion of
AGR-Lite coverage for Florida.
In 2005, with the objective of
helping small farms mitigate risk,
Bronson's department began the
application process to be eligible
to have Adjusted Gross Revenue

Senator helps Fla. Citrus Mutual keep trust


LAKELAND - The Florida
grower trust fund that finances
citrus marketing programs will
not be used to make up a bud-'
get shortfall after state Sen. J.D.
Alexander removed it Wednes-
day, Oct. 3, as a potential revenue
source.
Sen. Alexander's move came
after Florida Citrus Mutual and
other regional trade organiza-
tions asked him to protect the
Citrus Advertising Trust Fund that
supports Florida Department of
Citrus marketing programs. Gov-
ernor Charlie Crist was recom-
mending that the general revenue
charge on the fund be increased
to 8 percent.
"On behalf of 8,000 grower
members, Florida Citrus Mutual
would like to thank Sen. J.D. Al-
exander for dismissing the Gover-
nor's recommendation as well as
his unbending leadership on this
issue," said Michael W Sparks,
executive VP/CEO of Florida Cit-
rus Mutual. "Although we cer-
tainly understand the difficulty in
making up a $1 billion dollar bud-
get shortfall, tapping into the cit-
rus advertising trust fund would
have had a huge negative effect
on Florida citrus growers."
On Wednesday, the state Gen-
eral Government Appropriations
Committee, chaired by Sen. Alex-
ander, passed an appropriations
bill that doesn't use additional


money from the Citrus Advertis-
ing Trust Fund to finance the state
budget.
The Citrus Advertising Trust
Fund is funded by a tax on citrus
growers. The Governor's recom-
mendation would have taken $2
million out of FDOC coffers.
"It is important to protect the
Citrus Advertising Trust Fund be-
cause it is different than other
Florida trust funds. It is funded
solely by taxes levied on citrus
growers," Sen. Alexander said.
"Florida citrus growers are facing
many challenges and asking them
to give up $2 million in trust fund
dollars is unacceptable."
Florida Citrus Mutual and re-
gional citrus organizations wrote
Alexander a letter in late Septem-
ber asking him to ensure that no
money be taken from the citrus
trust fund. Sen. Alexander is a
Florida Citrus Mutual member.
"The Florida citrus industry is
facing many challenges including
citrus greening disease, the linger-
ing effects of the hurricanes and
an ultra-competitive beverage
market," wrote Sen. Alexander.
"These challenges have depleted
industry resources over the last
few years. Asking citrus growers
to now give up $2 million in trust
fund dollars, which is the differ-
ence between 3.3 and 8 percent,
could have severe negative con-
sequences on citrus research and


marketing efforts."
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948 and based in Lakeland,
is the state's largest citrus grow-
ers' organization with more than
8,000 grower members. The
Florida citrus industry employs
90,000 people and has a $9 bil-
lion economic impact. Please visit

WASHINGTON, D.C. - The
House Agriculture Committee
Thursday held a full committee
hearing on "The Labor Needs of
American Agriculture." The hear-
ing, requested by Congressman
Tim Mahoney (FL-16), examined
the issues of worker verification,
hiring and retaining agriculture
laborers, and the implications of
current federal regulations.
Mason Smoak, a citrus pro-
ducer and cattle rancher from
Lake Placid, FL and Rick Roth, a
specialty crops producer/ packer
and owner of Roth Farms Inc., in
Belle Glade, FL each provided ex-
pert testimony specific to Florida
agriculture.
"I am thankful to Chairman
Peterson and Ranking Member
Goodlette for holding this im-
portant hearing. It is critical, that
as we debate what Washington
needs to do to help American
families prosper, we hear from
the American farmer, rancher,
and grower," said Congressman


Tim Mahoney. "We need policies
that get tough on immigration by
securing our borders, finding out
who is here illegally and making
them pay their fair share, and
punishing those who knowingly
hire cheap illegal labor. We need
to develop solutions that work for
our farmers instead of turning a
blind eye on a broken system and
forcing them to have to choose
between feeding their families
and breaking the law," Mahoney
said.
"There are thousands of citrus
growers in Florida just like Mason
Smoak whose family businesses
are in jeopardy because they can-
not find the legal labor they need.
The current system is broken
from top to bottom and we need
to fix it. Our industry wants legal
workers," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive VP/CEO of Florida Cit-
rus Mutual, the state largest cit-
rus trade organization with 8,000
grower members.

the needs of small farms. AGR-
Lite is very different from tradi-
tional crop insurance programs
where a farmer buys coverage for
each crop. Here, one plan covers
the whole farm. This coverage is
administered and subsidized by
USDA-RMA. In order for Florida
to be eligible for coverage, Bron-
son's agency conducted regional
meetings and risk assessment of
all Florida crops and agricultural
production.
The Commissioner empha-
sized that managing risk in agri-
culture is the key to profitability
and essential for survival. Florida
producers know that it is critical
to address factors such as price
and yield fluctuation due to mar-
ket forces and weather variations.
Agricultural producers have al-
ways been resilient, but the hur-
ricanes in 2004 and 2005 put this


resiliency to the test with losses
exceeding $4 Billion.
"We are very pleased to have
a new form of crop insurance
which can help mitigate loss for
smaller farms throughout Flori-
da," Mr. Bronson said.
AGR-Lite provides protections
against low revenue due to un-
avoidable natural disasters and
market fluctuations that affect in-
come during the insurance year.
Most farm-raised crops, animals,
and animal products are eligible
for coverage. Mr. Bronson said
that sound risk management
solutions involving credit, mar-
keting, and operations must be
readily available to preserve and
strengthen the economic stabil-
ity of Florida producers to stay in
business. AGR-Lite is one more
risk management option now
available to Florida farmers.

How does Muck County, Fla. sound?


By Beryl Bowden
Edited by MaryAnn Morris,
INI Florida
Beryl Bowden wrote for the
Clewiston News in the 1980s.
Thanks to the Clewiston Mu-
seum, we have the drafts of
her articles on local history.
Clewiston Museum, in co-
operation with Florida Gulf
Coast University, has loaded
into a University of. Florida
digital library file, over 700
local historic photographs.
.The Museum has generously
given us permission to use
these photographs in our
articles. If Marian Horwitz
O'Brien had her way, many
of those living south of Lake
Okeechobee would now be
living in Muck County.
It happened back in 1919
when Marian Horwitz, the lovely,
energetic, knowledgeable, and
widely publicized mayor of Moore
Haven, sought creation of a new
county with Moore Haven as the
county seat. It would include a
wide swath of land from the then
prosperous community of Ritta
(now Lake Harbor) west and
north around Lake Okeechobee's
shores to the mouth of the Kis-
simmee River. Its name would be
a tribute to the miracle soil that
was astounding the entire nation
growing giant, swift crops with-
out fertilizer.
Governor Sidney J. Catts had
bought some of the miracle soil
lands around Moore Haven and
he and his family were friends of
its charming lady mayor. He was
considered friendly to the idea of
a new county, but was too astute
to take part in the political ma-
neuvering.
"How Mrs. Horwitz hap-
pened to be on the scene and .to
become mayor of Moore Haven
three years before the U.S. gave
women the right to vote is a story
in itself.

MaryAnn Morris
Marian Horwitz O'Brien, on the right was mayor of Moore Haven three years before women
could vote in the U.S. She actively lobbied the Florida legislature to create a separate county
for the land around the west part of the north shores of Lake Okeechobee.

state. He did everything on a big
scale and in a big hurry. He soon
overspent his funds and other
moneyed people took over his
project.
These people were three Phila-
delphians, Clarence M. Busch, J.J.
O'Brien, and George Q. Horwitz.
But Mr. Horwitz and Mr. O'Brien
did not agree with Busch's meth-


ods and the three parted compa-
ny. Mr. Horwitz and Mr. O'Brien
taking part of the land, including
Moore Haven, as their part of the
investment and forming DeSoto
Stock Farms Company. However,
before the company could get
underway, Mr. Horwitz died un-
expectedly.
Mrs. Horwitz came to Moore
Haven in February 1917 to in-
spect her inheritance. She did not
intend to move to Florida. She
had been born to the wealthy Ne-
whall family and reared in luxury,
but she was no ordinary society
debutante. She was a genuine
philanthropist who was inter-
ested in many social causes and
gave liberally of her money, time
and personal efforts in volunteer
. work for needy projects. She was
associated with Herbert Hoover n
his Belgian War Relief work.


Mrs. Horwitz spent most of
the 1919 legislative session at the
Leon Hotel, that historic Tallahas-
see hostelry which was head-
quarters for lobbyists and legisla-
tors during each session. (It was
said that laws were passed at the
Leon Hotel and the confirmed by
routine vote in the capitol the next
day lady gained many friends and
supporters for her county project,
but failed to overcome the strong
opposition of the three).
Representatives whose terri-
tory she sought to obtain -- Repre-
sentatives from Palm Beach, Lee
and DeSoto counties -- fought
off her efforts. But she must have
laid some good groundwork,
for in the next session Glades
County was created from DeSoto
and two years after that, Hendry
County come into being from Lee
County's territory.


No end to water shortage despite September rains


WEST PALM BEACH - Sep-
tember rainfall offered only mar-
ginal gains for water levels in Lake
Okeechobee, a primary backup
water supply to 5 million South
4- Floridians and the source of wa-
ter for irrigation across more than
500,000 acres of farmland in the
Everglades Agricultural Area.
Rainfall for the entire month was
slightly above average across the
region.
As a result of the rainfall, coast-
al groundwater and surface wa-
ter levels across nearly all of the
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) have improved
over the past 30 days. However,
water levels in most inland water
bodies and monitoring wells re-
main at or near historic lows, as
District-wide rainfall remains be-
low average for 2007, and rainfall
patterns continue to favor south-
eastern residential areas.
Lake Okeechobee, the larg-
est water body in South Florida's
water management system and a
leading indicator of regional wa-
ter supply conditions, reached an


all-time record low of 8.82 feet
above sea level on July 3, 2007.
The Lake level registered 9.96 feet
above sea level this morning, up
only 0.45 feet since September 1.
This is 0.82 feet below its previous
historic low for this date of 10.78
feet above sea level, recorded on
Oct. 3, 1956. Ayear ago today, the
lake's water level was 13.35 feet
above sea level, 3.39 feet higher
than this morning's reading.
"" Lake Okeechobee water lev-
els have been setting new record
daily lows for 122 consecutive
days, and according to water
managers, the growing disparity
between current lake level read-
ings and previous historic lows
continues to suggest that South
Florida may experience back-to-
back water shortage years for the
first time since the early 1980s.
September 2007 followed
the driest August since 1987 and
fourth driest on record since
1932, yielding District-wide rain-
fall of 7.38 inches, or about five
percent above the historical aver-
age for the month. At only 36.18


inches, or 83 percent of the his-
torical average through Monday,
October 1, year-to-date average
rainfall remains below normal for
the 16-county region.
"South Florida remains in a se-
vere regional water shortage, with
the heart of our system - Lake
Okeechobee - still nearly five feet
below normal elevations for this
time of year," said SFWMD Exec-,
utive Director Carol Ann Wehle.
"Absent dramatic rain events in
basins north of Lake Okeechobee
over the next thirty days, we will
almost certainly face a more se-
vere regional water shortage in
the spring of 2008."
The official Lake Okeechobee
water elevation is reported each
day by the U.S. Army Corps of
Engineers as the average of four
state-of-the-art monitoring sta-
tions located within the lake ba-
sin. The South Florida dry season
usually begins in November and
continues through May, with lake
levels normally rising during the
wet season and falling during the
dry season.


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

New policy protects Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands


WEST PALM BEACH - A new
directive from the Governing
Board of the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
is strengthening protection for
critical areas within the proposed
footprints of environmental resto-
ration projects in South Florida.
Citing the scarcity of coastal lands
available for Everglades restora-
tion in Miami-Dade County, the
District Governing Board recent-
ly identified nearly 6,400 acres
along Cutler Bay and within the
Biscayne Bay Coastal Wetlands
restoration project footprint as a
critical area of public interest.
Under the new directive,
unanimously approved by the
Governing Board at its September
meeting, applications for envi-
ronmental resource permit (ERP)
within the critical area of public
interest will be denied to protect
the lands for restoration. Permit


applications within the overall
boundaries of the Biscayne Bay
Coastal Wetlands Project, but
outside of the identified critical
coastal area, will be processed on
a case-by-case basis and will face
a high level of scrutiny to ensure
that the proposed use does not
impact the Everglades restoration
project.
"The South Florida Water
Management District will not al-
low development to dictate the
boundaries of this agency's im-
portant environmental projects,"
said SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann. "Once
the District has established a proj-
ect footprint, we will work dili-
gently to acquire those lands or
at minimum to ensure their use
is consistent with the public inter-
est. This is a significant first for
Everglades restoration."
Part of the State of Florida's


Acceler8 initiative, the Biscayne
Bay Coastal Wetlands project
will expand and restore the wet-
lands adjacent to Biscayne Bay in
Miami-Dade County, enhancing
the ecological health of Biscayne
National Park. Now underway,
phase I of this project consists of
the design and construction of
two essential flow ways located
at Deering Estate and Cutler
Ridge. The project also consists
of adding culverts to promote
sheet flow as opposed to point
source discharges. So far, more
than 90 percent of the land -- or
5,782 acres -- needed to complete
the restoration project is in public
ownership.
"In other areas where there
is more flexibility within project
footprints, the District regularly
works with ERP applicants to
ensure the appropriate environ-
mental safeguards are in place


to accomplish restoration. In
the case of Biscayne Bay, land is
scarce," added SFWMD Deputy
Executive Director Ken Ammon.
"Given South Florida's dramatic
growth and projected expansion,
it is likely that scarcity of land will
continue to drive similar actions
in the footprints of other environ-
mental projects."
At present, the District has re-
ceived five applications for ERPs
within the overall Biscayne Bay
Coastal Wetlands project foot-
print, with two of these concern-
ing lands in the newly designated
critical area. District staff has re-
sponded to the Board's directive
by already acquiring one of the
parcels outside the critical area
and has expedited efforts to ac-
quire the two parcels within the
critical area.

Mental health or mental anguish?


By Laurie Anspach
Executive Director of
Citizens Commission on
Human Rights of Florida
The rising number of children
involuntarily committed to psychi-
atric facilities is only one aspect of
the questionable practices in the
field of psychiatry. In a 2003 arti-
cle, by Lindsay Peterson, the Tam-
pa Tribune reported that In more
than 16,000 cases last year, fami-
lies, schools, courts and mental
health counselors used the Baker
Act to send children to psychiatric
crisis units. These numbers have
not decreased in the last 4 years.
17 percent of all Baker Acts in the
state of Florida are minors being
incarcerated into facilities that
practice ancient, unproven and
damaging psychiatric methods,
in the name of mental health. Pe-
terson reported, at that time, that
in nearly 1900 cases, the children
were 10 years old or younger.
The history of involuntary
commitment, for the state of
Florida dates as far back as 1874
at which time a person could be
placed in a state hospital if three,
people signed affidavits and se-
cured the approval of a county
judge. Some may have you be-
lieve that improvements were
made when Maxine Baker, for-
mer Florida State Representative,
succeeded in passing The Florida


Mental Health Act (The Baker Act)
In an editorial in The Ledger, April
5, 2002, it states For the first time,
Florida had a law that provided a
reasonable process for involun-
tarily committing those whose
conduct made them dangerous
to themselves or others. We need
to rethink our concept of "reason-
able" when we are talking about
locking up our children in psychi-
atric facilities.
Maxine Baker had something,
altogether different in mind when
she worked on this legislation in
her reference to the treatment
of people with mental illness. In
the report and recommendations
of the subcommittee on case ad-
ministration, Maxine was quoted
as saying only 9 percent of our
patients are dangerous to them-
selves or others, yet 91 percent
are under lock and key for the 58
percent of our patients who are
committed involuntarily, they lose
all their civil rights and leave with
an indelible stigma. In the name
of mental health, we deprive
them of their most precious pos-
session -- liberty.
The Baker Act is being used as
a net to scoop up any unwanted,
unmanageable behavior that is
displayed in a school setting and
our everyday life (the corner gro-
cery store, financial institutions,
neighborhoods,' etc). Citizens
Commission on Human Rights of


Florida (CCHR), a mental health
watchdog group, has examined
the current statistics on numbers
of children Baker Acted, in the
state of Florida, and these statis-
tics are too high. They reflect the
current trend of diagnosing and
labeling children who do not
behave according to a criteria
that is arbitrarily set by the Diag-
nostic Statistical Manual (DSM),
psychiatry's bible. CCHR has re-
ceived calls from parents who are
alarmed when they discover that
their child has been Baker Acted
from school grounds after having
answered, verbally or in writing,
questions from mental health
counselors in the schools. The
Pinellas County version of Teen
Screen is called On Campus Inter-
vention Program. This program is
geared towards isolating misbe-
having or problem children from
the rest of the class. The children
can be subjected to a mental
health questionnaire or interview
and if they are arbitrarily deemed
a potential risk to themselves or
others regardless of their actual
behavior or the underlying causes
of such -- they are removed from
school grounds and forcibly tak-
en to the nearest psychiatric facil-
ity or ward. At that point, they are
admitted under the Baker Act and
held in the facility for 72 hours,
with no visitation rights for their
parents to see them until a period


of 24 hours after involuntarily in-
carcerated.
We must question the ris-
ing statistics of Baker Acts in our
state, with more than 14,000 mi-
nors who were Baker Acted in
the year 2005, with an increase of
more than 500 children per year
from the years 2003-2005. This
includes children as young as 4
years old. Who is really watching
over these children?
Along with the passage of time
since Maxine Baker worked on
this legislation, until present day,
we have seen escalating use of
the DSM, with its bogus disorders
that are listed in this psychiatric
manual, and the greatly expanded
use of mind-altering, potentially
fatal psychotropic drugs and un-
scientific mental health question-
naires. The original intent of this
law has been perverted to fuel the
already, raging trend to deem all
persons with whose behavior we
might disagree, as having mental
illnesses, and to line the pockets
of those vested interests who
profit from the drugging of an
entire generation of children and
the creation of a drug dependent
society.

Walking trail leads along original shoreline


Few lake area dwellers seem
to know, but a walking trail exists
parallel to the original (before the
Herbert Hoover Dike) shoreline
of Lake Okeechobee.
The Rafael Sanchez Trail in
Lake Okeechobee Ridge Park, a
cooperative effort between Martin
County and the Florida Trail As-
sociation runs six miles through
the trees and foliage much as
the walking trails used by pio-
neer forefathers and foremothers
walked before roads were built
to connect the lake area towns.


Back then, when people needed
supplies from town, they walked
along the lakeshore.
The land was purchased to
preserve the last remaining part
of the original shoreline of Lake
Okeechobee. The Sanchez family
who owns the sugar cane fields
to the east donated this land.
The Rafael Sanchez Trail runs
six miles, up from Port Mayca
to Chauncey Bay, wandering
through a thin strip of coastal
hammock between US 441 to the
west and sugar cane fields to the


east.
Tall cypress trees, cabbage
palms, and large cedar trees dom-
inate the hammock. Although the
hike parallels US 441, you walk in
a lush tropical oasis that recalls
Florida's colorful past.
To walk, start at either end: the
south end of Lake Okeechobee
Ridge Park is located at the Port
Mayaca Recreation Area east of
US 441 and just north of the St.
Lucie Canal. The north trailhead
is located 2.3 miles south of
the Chauncey Bay boat launch


on the east side of US 441.
Parking is available at either
end: at the South end, at the
trailhead under the Port May-
aca Bridge. At the North end,
at Chauncey Bay Boat Launch
across the highway from the trail.
Now that the weather is start-
ing to get cooler, it might be
time for a deeply shaded stroll
along the ancient lakeshore ridge
Only Day hiking is allowed and
pets must be kept leashed. The
park is open from 8 a.m. to sun-
set.

drive to help the homeless in our
community. Florida Community
Bank supports the mission of the
Hendry/Glades Homeless Coali-
tion: "To build a better world,
start in your community".
Every night in the United

perience homelessness. That's
more people than the entire
population of our nation's capital,
Washington, D.C. In a one month
period (May 2007) in Hendry and
Glades counties alone, 36 people
did not have a place to call home
and required assistance from lo-
cal organizations.
For the month of October,
Florida Community Bank will be
accepting donations on behalf of


the Hendry/Glades Homeless Co-
alition. Now may be the time to
clean out your collection of hotel
samples and put them to good
use. A drop-off box will be located
in the lobby of the LaBelle Branch
located at 155 N. Bridge Street.
Items that will be accepted are:
bar/bath soap, shampoo (travel
size), comb, disposable razors,
shaving cream (travel size) tooth-
paste (travel size), toothbrush,


Band-Aids (travel size), deodorant
(travel size) Neosporin, fingernail
clippers, disposable wipes (travel
size) and washcloths.
If you would like more infor-
mation on how to help with the
needs of the Homeless Coalition,
please feel free to attend any meet-
ing scheduled the third Thursday
of every month at 10 a.m. at the
United Way House in LaBelle.

Change doesn't have to be a negative experience


Most of us learn early in life that
nothing stays the same forever.
Change is constant. Sometimes it
happens because of choices we
make; sometimes it's forced upon
us. Yet for many of us change can
be a frightening and upsetting
experience, especially when it af-
fects a major portion of our lives,
such as where we live, the job
we have, or a relationship we've
learned to enjoy.
Despite the stress that change
can bring, a transition to something
new doesn't have to be a negative
experience. If we try to avoid and
fight a coming change, it certainly
can be stressful and even depress-
ing when the change is forced


The

Counseling

Corner
From the American
Counseling Association

upon us despite our efforts.
But it doesn't have to be that
way. Our other choice is to see a
transition, even a seemingly un-
welcome one, as an opportunity
for growth. Here are some tips on
how to make that happen.
* Develop a positive attitude.
When you decide that a coming


change is an opportunity to grow,
learn and improve yourself, you
increase the odds it becomes just
that. Expand your horizons. While
the status quo may feel comfort-
able, it can be keeping you from
other places in life that can be ex-
citing, interesting and eventually
just as comfortable.
* Explore the opportunities
change can bring. People often say
that what seemed like a traumatic
change was actually the best thing
that ever happened to them. Rath-
er than fearing a coming change,
realistically evaluate the opportu-
nities it might provide.
* Inventory the stable things
in your life. A transition seldom


means that every part of your
life will change. Many if not most
things you value will still be there
for you. Put it in perspective by
writing a list of those valued
things that will remain after the
transition.
* Grieve what's being lost.
Transitions often mean at least
some things you value will be
gone. Whether it's friends or co-
workers left behind, or something
smaller yet important to you, it still
represents a loss. Give yourself
permission to grieve over those
things you're losing' so that you
can move forward with no regrets.
Change is often difficult, but it
need not be traumatic. Explore


A shopper's guide to good squash


Have you noticed that the pro-
duce section of your grocery store
has about a million different hard
winter squashes in it lately? Okay,
maybe not a million, but I'm go-
ing to bet there is one or two in
there that you haven't seen be-
fore. I want to give you a guide to
these delectable squashes-how
to pick them, prepare them and
best of all, eat them. Oh and guess
what? You guessed it--they're very
healthy and economical, too!
Let's start in alphabetical order.
First up is A for Acorn Squash with
the rest following-
Acorn squash is usually dark
green and sometimes has orange
coloring too, to its hard outer skin.
It's shaped somewhat like an
acorn without the top, hence its
name. The flesh of these squash
is nice and orange. The flavor is
mild and slightly sweet and the
texture is a little stringy, but tasty.
Butternut is one of my favorites.
The light tan skin is thinner than
some of the other winter squash-
es, so it's easier to peel than say
an acorn squash. It is shaped like
a very large pear. The flesh is also
orange-ish and the flavor, mild,
slightly sweet and the texture is
very smooth and creamy.

Buttercup Squash is one of my
favorite squashes and I'm always
happy to see it when it's in the
stores. Buttercups are stocky with
a turban-type top. They look great
with all your autumn decorations,
but make sure you eat some, too!
Their delicious is flavor, is consid-
ered the best by some people --
nutty and sweet at the same time,
with a creamy texture.
Hubbard squashes are big
guys that can be a lot of different
colors-from a bluish hue all the
way to light green and plenty of
colors in-between. I recommend
Hubbard squash in my low carb
Menu-Mailer because the carbo-
hydrate content is lower than oth-
er squashes and the fiber count
and nutrition is all there, too.
Spaghetti squashes look


like yellow footballs and when
cooked, have very stringy insides
that resemble strands of spaghet-
ti. Low in carbs, I recommend this
squash for the low carb Menu-
Mailer.
Sweet Dumplings are very
pretty-they look like miniature
pumpkins, but are white skinned
with pretty green stripes. This is
my absolute favorite squash. Their
flesh is light yellow and the flavor
is more buttery and nutty. Texture
is creamy and wonderful.
There are more squashes than
this, but this will give you a good
idea of what's available. Now the
next logical question is: how do
you cook them?
The littler squashes can be
opened up with a knife, seeds
taken out and cooked right inside
their tough little skins. I do this with
sweet dumplings all the time. Add
a little butter, some fresh ground
nutmeg, tent the dish with foil and
cook till fork tender.. .yum!
The bigger guys need some
bigger handling. Here's how you
do it:
It's really not that hard to make
delicious winter squash. First off,
wash your big winter squash and
stab it a few times. (No Norman


Bates imitations. Go easy.)
Next, put your stabbed dar-
ling into a preheated (350 degree
oven) for about 10 to 15 minutes,
depending on the size. Throw it
right on the rack -- no pan neces-
sary.
When the time is up, pull the
squash from the oven and set it
aside. Now futz with your salad
or whatever else you need to do
to get dinner ready. When the
squash is cool enough' to handle,
proceed with the peeling and de-
seeding and cubing of your gourd.
Place the prepped squash in a
baking dish and bake till fork-ten-
der (same 350 degree oven from
your first go round).
You can add a little orange
juice, water, broth -- anything to
give it a little moisture. Top with a
little bit of herbs, too. If you used
orange juice, try some cinnamon
or nutmeg. If you added water, go
with just about anything. If you
used broth, a little sage or thyme
works well. When the squash
is tender, it's done. Use a fork to
smush it into a puree if you like,
add a little honey or maple syrup
if you cooked it with cinnamon
and nutmeg and enjoy -- you've
earned that delicious squash!

her son, Randy Woodham, and
grandson, Luke Woodham.
Dorine moved to the Glades at
age 15 from Wendell, Idaho, set-
tling in South Bay with her parents


Jack and Verda Mathewson and
her two sisters. She was a gradu-
ate of Belle Glade High School,
Class of 1950. During those early
years, she could be found at the
danc.', at the Sugarland Audito-
rium with her future husband,
Howard, and many friends. Af-
ter marrying Howard in Novem-
ber, 1951, they settled at Hunter
Air Force Base in Savannah, GA,
where they lived until they re-
turned to the Glades in 1954. She
will remain in the hearts of those
who knew and loved her always
through endless stories of her
love, glorious laughter, discipline,
strength of character and selfless
concern for others.
She was a member of the
Woman's Club of Belle Glade,
serving in several officer posi-
tions. She was also a member of
the Lupus Foundation of Amer-
ica, Southeast Florida Chapter,
and was a supporter of the Dolly
Hand Cultural Arts Center since
its opening in 1982.

Unhealthy lifestyle increases risk of diabetesYo-
.1IW n a anornmi


Lately it seems there are a lot
more advertisements on televi-
sion about medical equipment
and treatments related to diabe-
tes. The increased marketing of
diabetes-related medical supplies
reflects the growing problem of
diabetes in the United States.
The number of Americans
with Type 2 diabetes is on the in-
crease. Type 2 was once referred
to as "adult onset" diabetes, but in
recent years more children are de-
veloping this type of diabetes.
According to the Center for
Disease Control (CDC) more than
20 million Americans suffer from
Type 2 diabetes.
Type 2 diabetes is more com-
mon than juvenile diabetes. About
7 percent of the adult population
in the U.S. has Type 2 diabetes -
- that's seven people out of every
100. About one in every 500 chil-
dren has juvenile diabetes (also
called Type 1.)
According to the CDC, Type
1 diabetes was previously called
insulin-dependent diabetes mel-
litus (IDDM) or juvenile-onset dia-
betes. Type I diabetes develops
when the body's immune system
destroys pancreatic beta cells, the
only cells in the body that make
the hormone insulin that regu-
lates blood glucose. To survive,
people with type 1 diabetes must
have insulin delivered by injection
or a pump. This form of diabetes
usually strikes children and young
adults. Type 1 diabetes accounts
for 5 percent to 10 percent of all
diagnosed cases of diabetes. Risk
factors for Type 1 diabetes may be
autoimmune, genetic, or environ-
mental. There is no known way to
prevent Type 1 diabetes.
According to the CDC, Type 2
diabetes usually begins as insulin
resistance, a disorder in which the
cells do not use insulin properly.
As the need for insulin rises, the


illnesses and, once they acquire m N *- u l
these illnesses, often have worse i -1
proonoses. For example. they are yCommunity Links. Individual Voices.


pancreas gradually loses its ability
to produce it.
Obesity increases the risk of
developing Type 2 diabetes. Some
researchers believe there is a link
between childhood obesity and
the increases seen in children
with Type 2 diabetes.
According to CDC data, dia-
betes can be deadly. Rearch indi-
cates:
* Diabetes was the sixth lead-
ing cause of death in the U.S. This
ranking is based on the 73,249
death certificates in which dia-
betes was listed as the underly-
ing cause of death. According to
death certificate reports, diabetes
contributed to a total of 224,092
deaths.
* Diabetes is likely to be under-
reported as a cause of death. Stud-
ies have found that only about 35
to 40 percent of decedents with
diabetes have diabetes listed any-
where on the death certificate and
only about 10 to15 percent had it
listed as the underlying cause of
death.
* Overall, the risk for death
among people with diabetes is
about twice that of people with-
out diabetes of similar age.
* Heart disease and stroke
account for about 65 percent of
deaths in people with diabetes.
* Adults with diabetes have
heart disease death rates about 2
to 4 times higher than adults with-
out diabetes.
* The risk for stroke is 2 to 4
times higher among people with
diabetes.
* About 73 percent of adults
with diabetes have blood pressure
greater than or equal to 130/80
mm Hg or use prescription medi-
cations for hypertension.
* Diabetes is the leading cause
of new cases of blindness among
adults aged 20 to 74 years.

Ask yourself: are you a fast or a slow eater?


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry County
Health Department
When you are trying to eat
healthier and get active there are
many things you can do to help
you make changes you want to ac-
complish. For many, losing weight
is at the top of the list and we look
for any help we can find. Here's
one way you may not have even
thought about before. Are you a
fast or a slow-eater? Eating on the
run and grabbing food from a bag
are common eating methods for
many Americans.
Take a few days and monitor
yourself as you eat your meals:
note the time you start eating and
the time you finish eating. How
many minutes passed? Why is
the time it takes to eat important?


How quickly you eat can have a
major impact on appetite as well
as the number of calories you
consume. Overweight people
tend to eat faster than people at
healthier weights. It takes time for
the stomach (approximately 20
minutes) to signal the brain that
it is full! If you slow your rate of
eating you allow yourself to real-
ize you are full and you can stop
before overeating occurs and you
are stuffed.
If you still feel just a little bit
hungry after finishing your meal,
stop and wait a few minutes and
give your brain and tummy time
to talk. It is better to be a little
hungry than it is to be a little full.
If you truly are still hungry, you
can always go back and eat a bit
more, but if you only stop eating
when you feel full, you can't get


rid of the extra calories.
Habits are hard to change and
if you are used to wolfing down
each meal it will take practice to
slow down. Part of the enjoyment
of eating lies in seeing what's on
your plate, smelling the food and
taking time to enjoy the meal.
Grabbing or eating on the run de-
prives you of the very things that
make eating fun -- and healthier.
By eating slowly, you may im-
prove what and how much you
eat. How can you slow down? Eat
from a plate while sitting at a table
instead of on the run from a bag.
Try putting your fork down be-
tween bites. Chew each bite well
-- if you are a fast eater chances
are high that you don't thoroughly
chew your food before swallow-
ing it. Try sipping a glass of water.

eating happens in front of the
tube. Have a conversation. Make
the meal last at least 25 minutes.
Enjoy what you eat; focusing on
what you eat makes it easier to
know when you are full and to
stop eating before you overeat.
And finally, resign from the clean
plate club; it truly is okay to leave
food uneaten on your plate!


12,000 to 24,000 new cases of
blindness each year.
* Diabetes is the leading cause
of kidney failure, accounting for
44 percent of new cases in 2002.
* About 60 to 70 percent of
people with diabetes have mild to
severe forms of nervous system
damage. The results of such dam-
age include impaired sensation or
pain in the feet or hands, slowed
digestion of food in the stomach,
carpal tunnel syndrome, and oth-
er nerve problems.
* Almost 30 percent of people
with diabetes aged 40 years or
older have impaired sensation in
the feet (i.e., at least one area that
lacks feeling).
* Severe forms of diabetic
nerve disease are a major con-
tributing cause of lower-extremity
amputations.
* More than 60 percent of
nontraumatic lower-limb ampu-
tations occur among people with
diabetes.
* In 2002, about 82,000 non-
traumatic lower-limb amputa-
tions were performed in people
with diabetes.

more likely to die with pneumo-
nia or influenza than people who
do not have diabetes.
Reducing the risk
The good news is that those at
risk for diabetes can make chang-
es in their diet and exercsie habits
to reduce their risks. According to
the CDC:
* Improved control of choles-
terol or blood lipids (for example,
HDL, LDL, and triglycerides) can
reduce cardiovascular complica-
tions by 20 to 50 percent.
* Detecting and treating dia-
betic eye disease with laser thera-
py can reduce the development of
severe vision loss by an estimated
50 to 60 percent.
* Comprehensive foot care
programs can reduce amputation
rates by 45 to 85 percent.
* Detecting and treating early
diabetic kidney disease by low-
ering blood pressure can reduce
the decline in kidney function by
30 to 70 percent. Treatment with
ACE inhibitors and angiotensin re-
ceptor blockers (ARBs) are more
effective in reducing the decline in
kidney function than other blood
pressure-lowering drugs.


* Periodontal (gum) disease
is more common in people with
diabetes. Among young adults,

Maine to put on display in Eastside Elementary School's

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers or
corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

the same standards.
"These are the kids that coach-
es love to love," said Dr. Egley.
"They are always there on time
and never late."
At the end of the year, one of
the students who have been se-
lected as a student of the month is
chosen as the student and athlete
of the year.
Teachers and coaches through-


out the school are tasked with
voting to see who the winners of
the award are each month, so a
student's conduct is heavily con-
sidered. That student must main-
tain a positive example on and off
campus.
The second program, one that
has proven its success since its
implementation last year, is the
Gold Card program.
Basically, students are reward-
ed with special cards -- the gold,
silver and blue cards -- for not
missing school, getting favorable


teacher recommendations and
staying out of trouble, among
other things.
The students then can use the
cards at special local businesses
and receive special prizes such
as discounts at restaurants. The
lucky students also get the oppor-
tunity to leave three minutes ear-
lier than the rest of the school.
The benefits of the cards are
much the same, with the benefits
of the gold card being greater than
the silver and the blue cards.
This year, the principal is al-


lowing the top gold card recipi-
ents to go on a trip to Halloween
Horror Nights at Universal Studios
in Orlando.
It all helps to motivate the kids
to do better, the principal said.
"You can choose your best be-
havior, but you can't choose your
consequence," said Dr. Egley.
"These kids deserve to go. They
are some of our best and bright-
est."

County has water services discussion


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The Hendry County Commis-
sioners are getting serious about
how water and sewer services
will be delivered to areas soon to
be developed on the western side
of the county. At their Sept. 25
meeting the commissioners vot-
ed to work with Florida Govern-
mental Utility Authority (FGUA)
and the City of LaBelle to come
to an understanding of who will
provide services and how that de-
velopment can go forward. Tues-
day evening, the commission reit-
erated that directive.
Commissioner Darrell Har-
ris was designated earlier as the


county's liaison with the City of
LaBelle. However, BOC Chairman
Kevin McCarthy reconsidered that
after realizing that Bill Maddox is
the commissioner for that district,
so Commissioner Harris stepped
aside.
Chairman McCarthy suggest-
ed that the county could balance
water service in the affected area,
entering into agreements with
both the City of LaBelle and the
FGUA. The key is determining the
areas each entity would cover.
Perhaps the city would provide
water within the five-mile district
it previously claimed. The City of
LaBelle has expressed its interest
in providing water to the unin-
corporated area from Sears Road


and SR 29S and west to the coun-
ty line, then north to the river and
east to the northeast corner'of the
city. The city would be amenable
to providing water for the county
to sell the north of the river, but
has no wish to service that area
itself. However, the county would
be responsible for the infrastruc-
ture north of the river.
The county, through FGUA,
would handle water service out-
side the area covered by the City
of LaBelle.
Another option .would be for
the county to purchase water
from the city to provide outside
the five-mile district.
With regard to wastewater
service, another possibility would


be for the city and county to con-
struct a wastewater plant jointly.
City Attorney Owen Luckey
and county staff have met several
times in recent weeks to iron out
a solution to the stalemate. The
county and the city have commit-
ted to meeting regularly, possibly
weekly, to bring this matter to a
mutually beneficial conclusion.
The West Hendry County
Comprehensive Plan is also a
concern, Assistant County Ad-
ministrator Judi Kennington-Korf
pointed 'out, because the county
has a December ,deadline from
the Department of Community
Affairs to put a plan in place.


Big bust for HC SO


Deputies had a busy
weekend in Labelle
arresting drug users

Elizabeth Hiriart
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - Hendry Coun-
ty Sheriffs Office performed an
undercover operation in Labelle
last Friday that resulted in 16 ar-
rests. According to officials, the
arrests are notable since a lot of
the drug activity in the neighbor-
ing community flows into the
Clewiston area.
The busts were spread out
across two days of busy drug ac-
tivity, while sheriff's deputies and
investigators worked to make the
arrests and get the drugs off the
streets.
Jean Carlos Zamora, 19, a resi-
dent of Twin Lakes Mobile Home
Park, faces charges of sale of co-
caine, ecstasy and possession of
marijuana. He was arrested Oct.
4.
On Oct. 5, the sheriff's office
posted its busiest day, arresting
scores of suspects in connection
with a drug sale operation in La-
Belle..
Deputies zeroed in on a home,
on Kissimmee Ave., where 50
pieces of crack cocaine, 5 grams
of marijuana and multiple pre-
scription pills packaged for sale


were found inside.
Jeffrey Leroy Beard, 48, the
home's resident, was charged
with operating a drug house, pos-
session of a controlled substance,
possession of cocaine with intent
to sell, possession of marijuana
with intent to sell and possession
of drug paraphernalia.
Setting up a sting operation at
the site, deputies arrested nine
individuals for the attempted pur-
chase of cocaine. They were: Car-
men Murray, 43, Matthew Swen-
son, 28, Peggy Rutledge, 36, David
Eniss, 36, Saul Gonzalez, 52, Keith
Luster, 29, Jorge Sanchez, 40, Is-
rael Garcia, 38 and Dallas John-
son, 18.
Others, too, were charged.
Wesley Howard, 26, was
charged with attempted purchase
of marijuana; Jeffrey Green, 25,
and Joseph Wilson, 36, were
both charged with resisting ar-
rest and Laricka Forbes, 25, and a
female juvenile were arrested for(
obstructing an officer.
Overall the operation was a;
success for the Hendry County,
Sheriff's Office.
"We need to let people know
who the drug dealers are so they
are aware of where they are," said
Mayra Quesada, with the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office.

Clewiston Tigers mark first win of the season


The Tigers picked a good night
for their first win of the season,
posting a big 34-7 district win, as
they rolled over the Cardinal New-
man Crusaders in a 2A-6 match
up at Clewiston's Cane Field.
The outburst of points easily sur-
passed the Tigers' season total of
23 points going into the game.
Clewiston relied on its tandem
tailbacks to control the game
clock. Colin Ricketts contributed
115 yards on 14 carries and Ju-
nior Darris Hughes added 17 car-
ries for 157 yards and two touch-
downs. Tiger flanker P.J. Runkles
pulled in an 18-yard pass from
quarterback Isandro Marquez
for another score. Fullback Wil-
lie Armstroog got the other Tiger
score on a one-yard burst.
The game got off to an hour
late start due to a lightening storm.
Clewiston took the opening kick-
off and marched 77 yards on 10
straight running plays. Ricketts
had runs of 14, 18 and 25 yards
to start the drive. But the Crusader
defense stiffened and the Tigers
were held on downs at the 3-yard
line. On their third snap, a Tiger
tackler jarred the ball loose into
midair and cornerback Damian
Smith grabbed it and scampered
5 yards for a touchdown. Late in
the first period, a short Isandro
Marquez punt was returned to
the Tiger 27 and the Crusaders
took advantage of a Tiger pass
interference penalty to get on the
boards early in the second period.

Alex Rubio breaks loose for a 16-yard gain.


The Tigers had escaped an ear-

touchdown pass when Cardinal
Newman was flagged for an ineli-
gible receiver downfield.
With the score knotted at 7,
the game appeared to be shap-
ing as a tussle. The Tigers took
the next series and used 9 plays
to cover 90 yards with fullback
Willie Armstrong first running
for 30 yards, dragging Crusad-

The Clewiston High School Junior Varsity played against
Glades Day on Thursday Oct. 4. This game was a team-
building experience for players as well as coaches and
spectators. In the fourth quarter Ancil Forde, number 5,
was injured by Zach Simmons, number 64 from Glades
Day. As Forde ran the ball, he was pushed out of bounds
by another player from Glades Day: After being pushed
again by the same player, he fell over the metal benches
and rolled over. The ball was still in play. Head Coach,
Jesse Windham called for a time out as Ancil Forde was
about to be carried off the field for medical treatment.
Coach Windham brought the team together to gather
around their fallen teammate on the stretcher, laying their
hands on him in silent prayer Teambuilding is about more
than just football.

ers with him, before punching
through a few plays later for the
final yard with 4:46 left in the half.
The Tiger defense then held the
Crusaders around midfield. In the
final 22 seconds of the half, Tiger
quarterback Isandro Marquez
was intercepted but on the first
Crusader play, Ricketts returned
the favor picking off a throw over
the middle.
The second half was all Clew-
iston. Darris Hughes got into the
game after sitting out the first half
for disciplinary reasons. With big
runs of 19 and 20 yards and a pass
to tight end, Delvin Hughes for 23,
Marquez had led the Tigers to the
Crusader 18. From there, he threw
an arching pass over the defense
to find wideout P.J. Runkles in the
end zone for the score. On the
conversion attempt, a snap han-
dling problem forced kicker Will
Davis to scoop up the ball and run
through several tackles to make
the two-point conversion. The Ti-
gers added two scores in the final
period with Darris Hughes getting
both on runs of 2 and 55 yards re-
spectively.
Clewiston's defense played the
Crusaders hard all night, holding
them to 134 yards of total offense
on 38 snaps and taking away the
ball with interceptions by Ricketts
and Alex Rubio and two fumble
recoveries by Damian Smith.


tackles. The Crusaders were held
to 102 yards rushing and 34 on
passing on a total of 41 offensive
plays, easily the Tigers best defen-
sive showing of the season.
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
was visibly relieved to get a win.
"We came out tonight and our
front line played. We had a good
night with Colin and Darris run-
ning the ball like we knew they
could," he said. "We saw a much
better effort tonight by a much
better Tiger team."
Ricketts, wlose rushing yard-
age primarily came in the first
half, saw double duty all night. He
chipped in seven tackles and the
interception from his linebacker
position.
"It feels great to finally get a
win and we are ready now," he
said after the game. "Our next
three games are all district and
we've got to keep it going."
The Tigers now get a much-
needed open week. They then
resume play with three straight
district contests-Pope John Paul
II and Inlet Grove on the road-
before returning home to host
St. Andrews on November 2. The
Tigers are still alive in district play
and can make the playoffs in spite
of their current 1-5 record.

What should we teach our children?


By Pastor Brian Hamrick
First Baptist Church of Clewiston
As soon as I say what I'm
about to say, no doubt some will
accuse of being old-fashioned,
out-of-touch, or simply too con-
servative. For those who gracious-
ly read on, hear me out. One of
the most important truths we can
teach our children is to be subject
to proper authority. Our culture
rebels against such an idea; our
very flesh disdains the very con-
cept of there being an authority
besides ourselves. However, Gar-
diner Spring rightly noted, "It is an


arrangement that will preserve a
child from a thousand evils."
God has very clearly com-
municated in His Word that it is
the duty of children to obey their
parents. Many times, this is the
opposite of what a child wants
to do! And if we understand sin
rightly, we understand why this
is so. The home is meant to be a
training center in which children
learn one of the most important
lessons of life - that they are not
the boss. The reality is that God
has placed many good authorities
in this world that our children will
need to learn to be subject to: pas-


tors, police officers, teachers, and
future employers, to name a few.
People that if they disrespect, the
very fabric of society begins to be
unwoven. But most importantly,
children need to understand that
we are all (adults and children)
to live under the good authority
of God Himself! A child needs to
understand (on his or her level)f
that their rebelliousness toward
God is ultimately of great harm to
their own soul, especially if they
persist in it.
How we present this to our
children must always be positive,
and in language they can under-


stand. Help them understand that
God, because He is kind and good
and made us to live for His glory,
has given them parents who love
them. Calling for their obedience
may be difficult and they will
struggle with opposite desires,
but it is not unfair or unkind. Not
only do Mommy and Daddy have
wisdom and life experience, but
God has promised blessing (Ephe-
sians 6:1-3) to children who obey
their parents. Our goal should be
for parents communicating to
their children that obedience to
godly principles is the best thing
for them.


It is said when the Lord builds a house


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Psalm 127:1 reads, "Unless the
Lord builds the house, its' build-
ers labor in vain. Unless the Lord
watches over the city, the watch-
men stand guard in vain." What
does the Lord build into a mar-
riage that the world d6es not?
1. God builds on commitment:
If the Lord is not in the marriage,
it often deteriorates into a trial-
and-error experiment. The world
regards marriage as a human
institution that can be easily dis-
solved "if things don't work out."
When the romance fades and the
inevitable irritations mount the
mind starts thinking about termi-
nation. But when the Lord builds
the house, the couple both mean


it when they say, "Till death do us
part." When the romance fades,
the partners think, "I've got to find
a way to work this out, because I
made a vow to God to stay with
this person regardless and I don't
want to be miserable all my life."
Big difference!
2. God builds on purity: If the
Lord builds the house, Christians
are careful not to give Satan a
foothold through drugs, alcohol-
ism, pornography, abuse, unfaith-
fulness, and other sins of impurity
that are so devastating to a mar-
riage. The godly couple protests
their relationship from these pri-
mary enemies of the home by
submitting to God's standards.
3. God builds on a common
value system: Just as the sun


holds our solar system together,
so the Son of God is the unify-
ing force in a marriage. Attend-
ing Church together; praying and
reading the Bible together; devel-
oping Christian friends who rein-
force the relationship, having the
same attitude toward work, child
rearing, money matters, and en-
tertainment choices - all serve to
solidify the home. When the Lord
isn't building the house, those ar-
eas can become sources of "irrec-
oncilable differences."
4. God builds on the power of
the Holy Spirit: "The fruit of the
Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience,
kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control (Ga-
latians 5:22, 23). Those unselfish,
edifying qualities don't come nat-


urally, but they are always deep-
ening in the life of a Spirit-filled
couple and serve to solidify the
relationship. There's a constant
restlessness in the heart of man,
but the Holy Spirit grants peace
and contentment. "In vain you
rise early and stay up late, toiling
for food to eat - for he grants sleep
to those he loves" (Psalm 127:2).
A marriage counselor drew a
triangle on a chart in front of an
engaged couple. At the pinnacle
he wrote, "God." In the bottom
two corners he wrote, "Husband"
and "Wife." Then, tracing the as-
cending lines of the triangle, he
spoke words of eternal wisdom;
"Notice that the closer you get to
God, the closer you are to each
other."


Doing all of the 'normal' things, then something


By Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D. +
St. Martin's Episcopal
Church, Clewiston
There was someone who
grew up in what is referred to as
our "post-Christian" era: school,
work, marriage, family, friends,
and the whole
bit. Everything
was all right
until one of her
children got sick.
Like the rest of
her life, every-
thing was sup-
posed to fall into
the neat packag- Samuel S.
es that give us all Thomas
security and that
we really don't think about. We all,
have our dreams of things being
organized and well in place.
Somebody said that you need


to have your dreams of things be-
ing organized and well in place.
Somebody said you need to finish
school, so you do. Someone talk-
ed about a job that would provide
for you, so you find something
that you think will make you hap-
py or at least pay the bills for the
time you invest. Somewhere we
get the idea that there is a person
out there who will make a good
partner and we search for them.
If disappointed, we'll search again
and hope for between luck next
time. I mean isn't that the way
things are supposed to work?
Then people get sick, or they are
fired, or they are abandoned by
someone they thought would love
them for life. That isn't part of the
plan. It isn't supposed to happen
-- but it does! The common things
we all seem to believe sometimes
even provide "band-aid" solu-
tions in case they don't work that


way, but at the bottom, things go
wrong and there is no quick fix.
It was the longing to find a really
helpful answer that led the lady
with the sick child to stop into
the church down the street from
where she lived. Curiosity, really,
and wondering if there would be
an answer that would help was
what brought her. What she en-
countered that made a difference
was finding people who could
say, "I've been there."
The answer came when oth-
ers could say, "I had a sick child"
or "I have a sick child' or even, "I
lost my child." What was it that
made a difference, that empow-
ered them to go on, that would
heal? It was their faith. Their faith
let them know about something
beyond just living out day-to-day,
common expectations and beliefs
about what we should be doing
or what we should think, or how


we should feel, or the best way
of handling disappointments. It
wasn't about rules, Bible quotes,
or incomprehensible doctrines or
people pretending to be happy; it
was about a community of people
who could say, "We share with
you; the Lord shares with you,
you are a part of our family."
You can read about Paul of Tar-
sus in Acts. He lived his "normal"
life of being a good leader in his
day and- then being struck blind
while on the road. He would ask
the same big questions we all
would ask; "What is going on

A parable in blue jeans


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
He was a simple man of few
words. Those who didn't know
him might call him shy. Then he
met Christine. The man of few
words became a man of fewer
words, espe-
cially around
her. Somehow,
they connect-
ed.
After dating
this special girl . . "
for months, he , . .I
realized that ''A-
he was head- John
over-heals in Hicks
love. For last
several weeks he had been try-
ing to build up the courage to tell
Christine that he loved her. But
the words were not easy for him
and they never seemed to come
out right. Every time the oppor-
tunity came, he stumbled and
stuttered.-
Not to say he didn't try. He
rehearsed what he wanted to
say to Christine over and over
again, but to no avail. He had
even practiced in front of a mir-
ror. When an opportunity came
to speak the words, however, the
words stuck in his throat - and
he choked. Maybe it was be-
cause he had watched too many
movies and thought he needed
to be moving in speech and ro-
mantic in presentation. Maybe it
was just because he was trying
too hard. Whatever the reason,
he just could not get the words
out.
Meanwhile, they continued
going together. He recalled that
Christine had mentioned that her
car seemed to be running poorly,
so he took her car to a service
station and had the mechanic
fix it. He didn't say much about
it to her, but when he returned
the car to her apartment she


thanked him.
Christine had often mentioned
that with her work schedule, she
didn't have the time to visit her
mother as often as she wanted.
His work was a little slow, so he
took an hour off for a short visit.
Again, when they next met, he
didn't say much, but Christine
thanked him for what he had
done. Little things like this con-
tinued to happen.
Time went on and he could
still not get the words out. He
wanted to say that he loved her,
but couldn't. Once again he
mustered up the courage to in-
vite Christine to a special dinner
and try again. Christine noticed
That he seemed to be unusually
uncomfortable that evening. It
seemed like something was on
his mind, but nothing was hap-
pening.
Finally, biting his lower lip
and clearing his throat, he tried
to speak -- but Christine put her
fingers to his lips, and told him,
"Me first". Christine told him
how much she .appreciated all
that he had done and all he was
in her life. Christine then shared
that she had wanted to tell him
something for quite a while,
but she had been afraid to.
"You know," she continued, "All
that you have done for me has
touched me deeply. You have
made me feel special. You have
made me feel cared for. This
must be what it feels like to be
loved. I have known other men
who said they loved me, but you
are the only one who has cared
and acted like this." Christine
paused for a moment, and then
continued, "Your actions have
spoken love so much more elo-
quently than anything I have ever
heard or anything I could ever
say. I love you, too."
"They will know we are
Christians by our love, by our
love. Yes, they will know we are
Christians by our love."

Someone said, "Lord, I don't
now what this day will bring,
,but there will be nothing that
we can't get through together!'"
That's it! Churches are commu-

their fellowship being together
with one another and with God;
and that's how they get through.
That's why people come and stay
and how we bet beyond "nor-
mal" to "great."


The entire truckload of pumpkins was unloaded in a little
less than an hour. The Pumpkin Patch at First United Meth-
odist Church is now open.

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AIR PERMIT
Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Division of Air Resource Management, Bureau of Air Regulation
Project No. 0510003-044-AC / Draft Air Permit No. PSD-FL-389
U.S. Sugar Corporation, Clewiston Sugar Mill and Refinery
Hendry County, Florida
Applicant: The applicant for this project is the U.S. Sugar Corporation. The appli-
cant's authorized representative and mailing address is: Mr. Neil Smith, V.R of
Sugar Processing Operations, Clewiston Sugar Mill and Refinery, U.S. Sugar Cor-
poration, 111 Ponce DeLeon Avenue, Clewiston, FL 33440.
Facility Location: The U.S. Sugar Corporation operates an existing sugar mill and
refinery, which is located in Hendry County at the intersection of W.C. Owens
Avenue and State Road 832 in Clewiston, Florida.
Project: The applicant proposes to add wood chips as a startup fuel and restricted
alternate fuel for exisfin Boiler 7. This unit Is currently authorized to fire bagasse
from the sugarcane mill ng process as the primary fuel and distillate oil as a start-
up and restricted alternate fuel. Wood chip firing will be restricted to an annual ca-
pacity factor of 25% or lesso The purpose of the project Is to displace distilate oil
with wood chips, which is a renewable fuel and carbon dioxide neutral fuel.
Based on the air permit application, the project will result in emissions increases of:
98 tons/year of carbon monoxide; 122 tons/year of nitrogen oxides (NOX); 8
tons/year of particulate matter; 8 tons/year of particulate matter < 10 microns; 1
to ear of sufuriunc acid mist; 5 tons/year of sulfur dioxide; and 9 tons/year of
volatile organic compounds. As defined in Rule 62-210200 of the Rorida Admin-
is trative Code (FA C.), emissions of nitrogen oxides exceed the regulatory signifi-
cant emissions rate of 40 tons per year. Therefore, the project is subject to
preconstructron review for the Prevention of Significant Deterioration (P SD) of Air
Quality for these pollutants in accordance with Rule 62-212.400, FA.C. The unit
also becomes subject to the applicable provisions of Subpart Db in 40 CFR 60 for
wood fired boilers.
For each PSD-significant pollutant, the Department is required to determine the Best
Available Control Technology (BACT) and approve the applicant's Air Quality
Anal, ; ..,j,,i,,,J -,cbient impacts due to the project. To minimize emissions,
the ,rin,T,rI, i,r i determination for nitrogen oxides relies on low nitrogen
fuels, combustion air staging with over-fire air, less excess air, reduce air preheat,
low-NOX burners for oil and good combustion practices. The Department re-
viewed an air quality impact analysis prepared by the applicant. The analysi
shows that maximum predicted NOX impacts from the proposed project are less
than the applicable PSD Class I and Class II significant impact levels. Therefore,
no further modeling was required. The results provide reasonable assurance that
the project will comply with all applicable air quality regulations and will not cause
or contribute to a violation of the state and federal ambient air quality and PSD in-
crements.
Permitting Authority: Applications for air construction permits are subject to review
in accordance with the provisions of Chapter 403, Florida Statutes (ES.) and
Chapters 62- 6262-210, and 62-212, FA.C. The proposed project is not exempt
from air permitting requirements and an air permit is required to perform the pro-
posed work. The Florida Department of Environmental Prtection's Bureau o Air
Regulation is the Permitting Authority responsible for making a permit determina-
tion for this project. The Bureau of Air Regulation's physical address is 111 South
Magnolia Drive, Suite 4, Tallahassee, Ronda 32301 and the mailing address is
2600 Blair Stone Road, MS #5505, Tallahassee, Florida 32399-2400. The Bu-
reau of Air Regulation's phone number is 850/488-0114.
Project File: A complete project file is available for public inspection during the nor-
mal business hours of 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday (except le-
gal holidays), at address indicated above for the Permitting Authority. The
complete project file includes the Draft Permit, the Technical Evaluation and Pre-

62-296 and 62-297, EA.C: The Permitting Authonrity will issue a Final Permit in
accordance with the conditions of the proposed Draft Permit unless a timely peti-
tion for an administrative hearing is filed under Septions 120.569 and 120,57,
FS. or unless public comment received in accordance with this notice results in a
different decision or a significant change of terms or conditions.

Crossbow season opens on Oct. 22


Football season's in full swing,
and the 2007-08 hunting season's
starting to crank up. Archery sea-
son's been going on in most of
the state, and in this issue, I want
to talk about three other seasons
about to start: crossbow, muzzle-
loading gun and the first phase of
dove season.
Crossbow season occurs be-
tween archery and muzzleload-
ing gun season in the Central and
South hunting zones, lasting five
days: Oct. 22 through 26 and Oct.
through 12, respectively. In the
Northwest zone, it comes in later,
on the Monday after Thanksgiv-
ing (Nov. 26), and lasts one week
through Dec. 3.
This season's for any hunter
who'd like to use a crossbow or
continue using a bow on private
lands. This is not just for dis-
abled hunters. Crossbow season
doesn't apply to wildlife manage-
ment areas (WMAs), however.
The most common game to
take during crossbow season
will be deer and wild hog. Only
bucks may be taken, and one
antler must be at least five-inches
long above the hairline. The daily
bag limit on antlered deer is two.
Wild hogs -- considered livestock
on private lands -- may, with land-
owner permission, be hunted
year-round with no bag or size
limits.
It's also legal to shoot gob-
blers and bearded turkeys during


By Tony Young

crossbow season. Only one may
be taken per day, and there's a
two-bird fall-season limit. But
you can't hunt turkeys in Holmes
County during the fall and winter.
Crossbows and bows must
have a minimum draw weight
of 35 pounds, and hand-held re-
leases on bows are permitted.
For hunting deer, hog and turkey,
broadheads must have at least
two sharpened edges with a min-
imum width of 7/8 inch.
Legal shooting hours are a
half-hour before sunrise to a half-
hour after sunset. Except for tur-
keys, hunters may take resident
game over bait on private lands.
* Some things you can't do
during crossbow season include
hunting deer, hog or turkey with
dogs, using explosive or drug-in-
jecting arrows, and possessing
firearms. Immediately following
the close of crossbow season in
the Central and South hunting
zones is the beginning of muzzle-
loading gun season. Season dates
run Oct. 27 through Nov. 4 and


Oct. 13 through 21, respectively.
Muzzleloading season comes in
later in the Northwest zone and
runs Nov. 16 through 18.
During muzzleloading gun
season, bows and crossbows are
legal methods of taking game on
private lands, along with muzzle-
loaders. On WMAs, only muzzle-
loaders may be used.
Legal shooting hours are the
same for muzzleloading gun sea-
son as crossbow season. And,
legal game, including bag limits
and prohibited methods for tak-
ing game, also are the same as
crossbow season. Bag limits and
antler/size restrictions for game
on WMAs can differ, so check the
specifics of the area before you
hunt.
For hunting deer, muzzleload-
ers firing single bullets must be at
least .40-caliber. Guns firing two
or more balls must be 20-gauge
- or larger. You may not use muz-
zleloaders with self-contained
cartridge ammunition capabilities
or possess modern firearms dur-
ing muzzleloading gun season.
The first phase of the mourn-
ing and white-winged dove sea-
son begins Oct. 6 and ends Oct.
29 statewide. Shooting hours dur-
ing this first phase are noon to
sunset, and there's a 12-bird daily
bag limit.
The only firearm you're al-
lowed to hunt doves with is a
shotgun, but you can't use one


larger than a 10-gauge. Shotguns
must be plugged to a three-shell
capacity (magazine and chamber
combined).
You may hunt doves over an
agricultural field, as long as the
crop's been planted as part of reg-
ular agricultural practices. How-
ever, it's-against the law to scatter
agricultural products over an area
for the purpose of baiting.
Some things you can't do while
dove hunting are using rifles, pis-
tols or crossbows; shooting from
a moving vehicle; or herding or
driving doves with a vehicle.
In addition to a Florida hunt-
ing license, you'll need a $5 cross-
bow permit to hunt during cross-
bow season. A $5 muzzleloading
gun permit, is needed to hunt
during muzzleloader season, and
you'll need a no-cost migratory
bird permit if you're going to hunt
doves. If you hunt on a WMA, you
must have a management area
permit that costs $26.50.
All are available at county
tax collectors' offices ,or license
agents or by calling, toll-free 1-
888-HUNT-FLORIDA or clicking
MyFWC.com/license.
So if you're going after that
monster buck during the cross-
bow and muzzleloading gun sea-
sons or dove hunting with friefids
and family, I hope I've helped
explain the rules and regulations
on some of Florida's hunting sea-
sons.


Not all muzzleloaders are strictly legal


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) wants to make it clear to
all muzzleloader hunters - not all
muzzleloaders are created equal.
Some of the new models do not
meet the legal definition of guns
authorized for use during muzzle-
loading gun season.
The two issues which seem
to be generating the most ques-


tions are whether muzzleloaders
with an electronic ignition are le-
gal and whether the use of nitro-
cellulose powder is legal. Neither
is legal for use in Florida during
muzzleloading gun season.
"In particular, the CVA Electra
is a new muzzleloader -on the
market that doesn't qualify as a
state-defined muzzleloader," said
Capt. John Miller of FWC's Divi-


sion of Law Enforcement. "It is
not a legal weapon for muzzle-
loader season because it uses an
electronic ignition, fired by a bat-
tery."
The legal types of guns for
use during the muzzleloading
gun season use black powder or
a non-nitro-cellulose substitute
and are fired by wheel lock, flint-
lock or percussion cap ignition


(including shotgun or 209 type
primers). They are not adaptable
to use of any self-contained car-
tridge ammunition.
The CVA Electra muzzleloader
is legal to use during general gun
season, however.

zleloader hunting, visit MyFWC.

How does one go about choosing a trailer


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida

You have livestock, horses,
cows, pigs, etc. in your back-
yard acreage. You realize that
little Jeannie wants to join the 4-
H horse club with her backyard
horse because her best friend
in school belongs and has told
her they have a super time with
their horses and learn a lot. UH-
oh! That means being able to
take the horse to club functions
and shows or just over to one of
Jeanie's friends' houses so they
can ride together on a weekend.
Where and how to start looking?
Like buying a car, do your re-
search; know what you need be-
fore you go out to buy. What are
the questions you should ask?
The leader of the 4-H club
might be a good resource and so
can local trailer dealers.
However, do not take anyone's
word for everything. Do some re-
search of your own as if you were
buying a car, but not quite.
For instance, how many hors-
es will you be hauling? Long dis-
tance or local?. What vehicle will
you use to pull it? Is that vehicle
rated for the gross vehicle weight
of your trailer? (GVW- that is, the
weight of the empty trailer, the
horsess, any feed, tack, groom-
ing supplies, etc.) Does the hitch
type and class meet 'any state reg-
ulations? Is it roomy enough for


Backyard

Barnyard

the horses) that you own?
"Most people here buy stock
trailers," said Bill Parcell, sales
manager at Eli's Trailer Sales."
Stock trailers come in steel or alu-
minum, the floor can be wood,
aluminum, or "Rumber" that is,
"lumber" made from recycled
tires. The trailer can have a steel
or aluminum roof or a canvas
top. You can put together pretty
much what your budget will al-
low. Then you choose the right
axles for what you want to haul
and the weight."
Since there are no government
or industry standards that govern
horse trailer construction, look at
the trailer from your horse's point
of view. Horses are prey animals
that depend on flight to stay alive.
A trailer is shaky ground and con-
fines them so they cannot run
away. It is only their trust of us
that encourages them to get in
to a trailer at all! Be sure all rings,
latches fold flat and cannot injure
the horse.
A trailer needs enough room
for the horse to stand comfortably
and plenty of ventilation. Padded
or wood paneled sides, chest
rolls and butt rolls can increase
safety. If the trailer is aluminum,
watch closely for minor damage


that can tear or other wise dam-
age the trailer and cause injury to
your horse.
A Web site called EquiSpirit
was very helpful and gave us this
information: "An inside width
of 6 feet with a height of 7 feet
(square sided ,roof rather than
rounded), and a total stall length
of 10 feet, will fit a horse from
about 14 hands up to about 16
hands. Add 2 inches to the roof,
and the horse can be up to 16-3
hands. From 16-3 hands up to 17
hands, you should add another 2
inches to the height, and 6 inches
to the length or just add 1' to the
head area depending on the size
of your horse."
For a limited budget, a well-
made stock trailer is a good
choice. This type trailer meets
most of EquiSpirit's criteria. It is
open and airy. The horses can
easily step up into the trailer and
turn around to come walk out
headfirst. (Backing out of a step
up trailer is risky. It is not unusual
for a horse to slip under the trailer
when being unloaded. What a
stock trailer may lack in ameni-
ties, it will make up in durabil-
ity and versatility, since it can be
used to transport other livestock
as well. This is very useful to
avoid waiting for the vet to drive
out to your place, since you can
take your animals to him or her. It
can also be used to haul hay and
move your brother's household


into a new house.
"A gooseneck trailer that fits
into a device installed in your
truck bed puts the weight evenly
between the axles. When you are
trying to get out of a parking lot
after an event, your can jackknife
them and maneuver better than
with a bumper pull," said Mr. Par-
cell. "The most important factor
is that the trailer and the truck
be level. I cannot emphasize hat
enough. It makes a big difference
in safety: the trailer will pull bet-
ter and also in your ability to stop
your vehicle and trailer safely."
