Citizens want better lighting


Dark conditions
can be dangerous,
residents say

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News,
CLEWISTON For many of
the residents living in the small
block bordered by West Alver-
dez, West Aztec and San Luiz
Avenue, the nights are too dark
without adequate illumination
to highlight potential dangers on
the streets.


Taking a simple walk could
lead to a more disastrous con-
clusion if residents aren't espe-
cially careful treading around the.
canals and any animals looming
nearby.
At least, that's what resident
Angela Moeller believes.
Ms. Moeller recently peti-
tioned 47 of her neighbors living
in the area about whether they
feel safe walking or traveling
down the roads at nights -- let
alone allowing their children to
play outside on the streets.
"There are a lot of people


there and kids sometime walk
to do their homework in their
friends' houses," said Ms.
Moeller. "When we get to that
part, it's very dangerous because
there aren't any lights at all.
Ms. Moeller said that devel-
opment has steadily climbed in
that area from two years ago. In
that time, however, the lighting
situation has remained much
the same.
The residents feel neglected,
Ms. Moeller said.
"The only people we saw
were appraisers from Hendry


County to increase taxes," Ms.
Moeller said. "If we have more
taxes, why don't we have any
signs and lighting?"
Mayor Mali Chamness imme-
diately responded to concerns
from the community last week
ard has city hall staff looking
at the feasibility of installing ad-
ditional lighting to address resi-
dents' concerns.
According to her, the city is
following its guidelines regard-
ing where lighting should be
located. In the case of the dark
roads along Alverdez, the street

lights are located exactly where
they should be, she said: at the
corners.
"There should be lighting at
each intersection. If there is a
curb on the road or a change
in the road, there's a change,"
she said, explaining the reason
why some of the streets may not
seem as well lit as other areas 5f
the city.
The mayor nevertheless said
that the city will carefully study
the issue.

Fall Festival event in


Clewiston draws crowds


Children and adults
have fun at
annual event

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON All of a
sudden, creeping out over the
faraway landscape near Wood-
works Park, a group of small
critters emerged on Saturday
evening.
It wasn't very long before
the strange outlines of animals


and monsters, princesses and
superheroes started taking pos-
session of the scene.
The queen's rule was cut
short by her mother.
The ghosts haunts were hin-
dered by his father.
The angel's flight never did
quite get off both feet.
At least the treats were avail-
able, though, and the children
were satisfied with that.
According to Joanne Gutier-
rez, who along with Robert Mc-
Craine of the city's recreation
department, and the Clewiston


Chamber of Commerce, helped
to organize the event, plenty of
families were out to celebrate
Halloween a few days earlier.
"We had a big turn out,"
said Ms. Gutierrez.
In between the many activi-
ties -- children learned how to
make slime, participated in the
horse shoe toss, cake walk and
even offered their best guess
about a pumpkin's weight -- the
adults were seen having just as
much fun.
See Festival Page 12

Bobby is Batman. Tyler is a ninja. Morris is Superman. Andre
is black Spiderman and Tomas is red Spiderman. To see them
unmasked go to photos.newszap.com. They had a great deal
of fun at the fall festival.

Tim Mahoney calls for passage of Children's


WASHINGTON D.C. Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
recently spoke on the floor of the
U.S. House of Representatives in
support of the Children's Health
Insurance Program Reauthoriza-


tion Act. The House is expected to
vote on the bill later today, which
would give healthcare to 10 mil-
lion needy children through the
Children's Health Insurance Pro-
gram (SCHIP).


The President vetoed a bill to
reauthorize SCHIP in early Oc-
tober. The new bill strengthens
rules to verify citizenship, phase's
childless adults out of the program
a year earlier than the previous


bill, and caps income eligibility
for the program at 300 percent of
the poverty level. In addition, the
bill further minimizes the "crowd-
out" of private insurance.


Everglades clean-up will be additional 6,000 acres


WEST PALM BEACH Ever-
glades' water quality received a
healthy boost as 6,000 additional
acres of land in rural Palm Beach
County were fully converted to
treatment wetlands aimed at
cleaning up water flowing into the
River of Grass. The State has now
converted a total of 52,000 acres
of former farmland into Storm-
water Treatment Areas (STAs).
The shallow, plant-filled marshes
are part of Florida's investment of
$1.8 billion in water quality im-
provements for the Everglades.
Using "green technology," the
STAs naturally cleanse water of
excess nutrients before it flows
overland into the Everglades.
"Because of the state's con-
tinued commitment to Ever-
glades restoration, we are already
achieving environmental results,"
said Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection Secretary
Michael Sole. "Florida is a role
model for other states, a prime


example of the monumental en-
vironmental restoration that can
be achieved with dedicated fund-
ing, effective projects and a vision
for success.'"
Treatment wetlands are the
workhorse for water quality im-
provements in the South Florida
ecosystem. A decade ago, phos-
phorus concentrations in Ever-
glades-bound waters averaged
170 parts per billion (ppb). To-
day, the STAs are treating water
to phosphorus concentrations
below 50 ppb and in some cases
as low as 12 to 14 ppb, surpass-
ing early predictions for the suc-
cess of using green technology
for water quality improvements.
The State of Florida and the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District constructed the first
five Everglades STAs in operation,
including the world's largest con-
structed wetland at 17,000 acres.
The District completed the 6,000
acres of initial STA expansions at


three sites (STA-2, STA-5 and STA-
6). Another 12,000 acres of STAs
are currently in design as part of
secondary expansions.
"The District is to be com-
mended for timely additions to
the Stormwater Treatment Ar-
eas systems," said Eric Draper,
Deputy Director for Audubon of
Florida. "This newest Stormwater
Treatment Area adds increased
certainty that with proactive up-
stream water quality Best Man-
agement Practices, clean water
will flow into the Everglades"
Over the last decade, the STAs
- combined with improved agri-
cultural practices have prevent-
ed 2,678 metric tons of phospho-
rus from reaching the Everglades.
During Water Year 2007 (May '06
through April '07), the STAs cap-
tured and treated 900,000 acre-
feet of water, reducing phospho-
rus loads to the famed River of
Grass by 71 percent.
"Accelerating our restoration


projects like the expansion of
constructed wetlands provides
our taxpayers with immediate
environmental, recreation and
economic benefits," said SFWMD
Executive Director Carol Wehle.
"The District remains firmly fo-
cused on further improving the
quality of water flowing into the
Everglades. We are grateful to
Governor Crist and Secretary Sole
for their continued support and
leadership in restoring and pro-
.tecting Florida's River of Grass."
In 1994, the Everglades For-
ever Act mandated and funded
construction of treatment wet-
lands aimed at lowering phos-
phorus levels for water entering
the Everglades. In 2004, Florida
launched Acceler8 an ambi-
tious plan to speed up the fund-
ing, design and construction of
eight key Everglades restoration
projects. Expansion of the Storm-
water Treatment Areas is part of
this accelerated effort.


Mahoney introduces property tax relief legislation


WASHINGTON, D.C. Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney (FL-16)
introduced bipartisan legislation
to cut taxes for Florida hom-
eowners on Thursday, Oct. 26.
The Homeowners' Property Tax
Relief Act of 2007 could save over
976,000 Floridians more than
$2,000 per year in federal taxes. In
Florida, where property taxes are
higher, savings could be much
greater. The legislation provides
this tax cut by allowing all Flo-
ridians to deduct state and local


property taxes from their federal
income tax return. Currently, tax-
payers who file under the Alterna-
tive Minimum Tax are prohibited
from, taking this deduction.
Mahoney's legislation comes
at a time when Florida home-
owners are being hit hard by the
staggering costs of property taxes
and homeowners insurance.
"The Homeowners' Property
Tax Relief Act would cut taxes for
Florida families struggling under
the high costs of property taxes


and homeowners' insurance. In
the past six year, property taxes
have doubled but family incomes
have not. More and more middle-
income Florida families are bear-
ing a tax burden beyond their
means and are unable to pay
their mortgage. Time is running
out. We must act quickly to pro-
tect the American dream of hom-
eownership," said Congressman
Tim Mahoney.
Although the AMT was origi-
nally intended to affect only the


wealthiest Americans, it is en-
snaring more and more middle
class families. As a result, many
families on tight budgets are
struggling under an increasingly
unmanageable tax burden. While
.the AMT initially affected fewer
than 20,000 taxpayers, this year,
it is expected to affect 23 mil-
lion Americans, including over
976,000 Floridians. In Florida's
16th Congressional District, over
46,000 taxpayers are expected to
file AMT returns this year.

Changes are proposed to fishing rules


The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC)
want's public input on proposed
changes to two Lake Okeechobee
freshwater fishing rules.
The FWC will hold two public
meetings in November to explain
the season .behind the proposed
changes arid to hear public opin-
ion The first meeting \vill be held
in Clewiston on Wednesday, Nov.
14 at 6:30 p.m. at the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers Office, 525
Ridgelawn Road. The second
meeting will be in Okeechobee
on Thursday, Nov. 15 at 6:30 p.m.
at the Okeechobee Civic Center,
1750 U.S. Hwy. 98 North.
Sampling over the last few


years has shown a decline in the
numbers of small largemouth
bass and black crappie. The first
proposed change is to replace the
existing 13 to 18-inch protective
slot limit for largemouth bass with
an 18-inch minimum size limil
,Currently, the slot limit.restricts
the harvest' of bass between 13
and 18 inches in length. The new
size limit would mean anglers
could not take any bass under 18
Inches from the lake. This change
would protect the younger large-
mouth bass until they grow to
quality size.
The second proposed change
would be to institute a 10-inch
minimum size limit on black crap-


pie, also called speckled perch.
The rule change would protect
the younger black crappie from
being harvested and reduce pres-
sure on the current population.
This rule would remain in effect
until FWC trawl data shows three
successive years of normal catch
rates for black crappie.
If adopted by the Commission,
these rule changes would go into
effect July 1, 2008.

freshwater fisheries, visit MyFWC.

meetings, call Regional Fisheries
Biologist Jon Fury at (561) 625-

The legal form of your


business is a big decision


By Sean Moore
Small Business
Development Center
Great first week for the col-
umn, and I appreciate those folks
who took the time to write and
ask me questions. I answered a
few of them through email, a cou-
ple by phone, and one by Morse
code although I think I may have
accidentally ordered a number 4
with a diet Coke, my Morse code
is a little rusty! There were many
great questions, but one of them
caught my attention and I thought
I should address it here publicly.
When I am starting my busi-
ness, what is the best legal struc-
ture to choose?
I am sorry to say this right off
the bat but...this is a question lit-
erally impossible to answer here
and to be honest is not a ques-
tion that should be taken lightly
or made without a lot of research
on your part. There are several
types of legal structure to pick
from: Corporations, S-Corpora-
tions, LLC's, Sole Proprietorships,
and Partnerships. The differences
between the types in some cases
may be small, but can make a
huge difference in the way your
business works.
* The biggest issues that you


have to decide upon when you
select a structure is going to cen-
ter on two items: The way a des-
ignated legal structure has your
company pay it's taxes each year,
and how much legal protection
does a given structure provide in
the event something were to go
wrong. Some structures will al-
low you to claim profits on your
personal income taxes; other will
have your company claim them.
Some of the structures will pro-
vide you great protection if you
face a lawsuit while others leave
you more vulnerable. There is a
lot of thought that should be con-
sidered when you face this step
in the process, and should not be
taken lightly. As you can see, with
so many different ways to go and
the variables' that are involved I
cannot give you one set answer
here. I will be happy to discuss
any of the options with you if
you give me a call or send me an
email. See you next week.

Don't let anger control you


When pushed hard enough,
most of us might feel angry, but
then we calm down. The prob-
lem for many people, however,
is that their anger takes over. Un-
controlled anger can result in sig-
nificant problems in social, pro-
fessional and family relationships,
but even milder bouts of anger,
if not recognized and dealt with,
can have serious implications.
A first step in controlling anger
is recognizing the internal signs
that mean you're becoming an-
gry or are already there. Think
about how you felt the last time
you were angry. What changes
took place as you became upset?
Ask others how you changed or
acted.
Being able to recognize your
anger signs allows you to take
steps to control that anger. For ex-
ample, feeling yourself becoming
angry may signal that it's time to
distance yourself from the person
or incident triggering your emo-
tions simply by walking away.
Anger management requires
that you buy yourself time. Un-
controlled anger happens quickly,
taking over your emotions, block-
ing rational thought and causing
you to strike out. Time allows you
to calm slightly, to consider why
you're angry, and to think ratio-
nally about what happens next.
That's why counting to ten
when angry actually works. Even
a few seconds can allow for ratio-
nal thought, rather than simply
blindly striking back in anger. Of-
ten, an activity to work off the en-
ergy, both physical and emotion-
al, that your anger is generating
will help. Physical exercise, like
walking, jogging or sports, can be
such an outlet. Listening to mu-
sic, playing an instrument, read-


The

Counseling

Corner
From the American
Counseling Association

ing or doing something artistic
often helps calm you down. Your
goal is refocus that anger energy
in more productive directions.
When you have your anger un-
der control, it's time to consider
rationally what has happened and
why. Most cases involving anger
don't require an angry response:
If a person is looking to pick a
fight, not rising to the bait can be
very effective. If certain situations
consistently make you angry, con-
sider ways simply to avoid them,
or at least to be better prepared
when you head into them.
Controlling anger requires rec-
ognizing when you're becoming
angry and then redirecting per-
sonal energy into more productive
behaviors. But if you find, despite
your best efforts, that controlling
your anger seems impossible,
seek professional help before it
does real damage to your life. A
counseling professional can help
you understand what is causing
your anger, and give you tech-
niques to avoid such reactions.

provided as a public service by
the American Counseling Asso-
ciation, the nation's largest orga-
nization of counseling profession-
als. Learn more at the ACA web

NOVEMBER IS NATIONAL DIABETES MONTH
Diabetes affects your body from head to toes. This includes your
eyes. The most common and most serious eye complication of dia-
betes is diabetic retinopathy, which may result in poor vision or
even blindness.
"Retinopathy" is the medical term for damage to the tiny blood
vessels (capillaries) that nourish the retina, the tissue at the back of
your eye that captures light and relays information to your brain.
The high blood sugar levels associated with diabetes often affect
these blood vessels.
Nearly half of people with known diabetes have some degree of
diabetic retinopathy. The longer you have diabetes, the more likely
it is you'll develop diabetic retinopathy. Initially, most people with
diabetic retinopathy experience only mild vision problems. But, the
condition can worsen and threaten your vision.
The threat of blindness is scary. But, with early detection and
treatment, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic tetinopathy is
small. At Family Eye Care, we provide dilated eye examinations to
thoroughly assess ocular health to prevent the development of ocu-
lar and medical complications of diabetes. Please call our office at
(863) 675-0761 for more information or to set-up and appoint-
ment.

Hendry County Schools offer
Breakfast at no charge to all of
their students, every school day.
Breakfast times may ,vary from
school to school, so check with
your child's school office for the

Breakfast Program was enacted
to ensure that school children are
being served a nutritious break-

that higher academic and social
achievement occur when chil-
dren eat breakfast. Make sure that
your child starts off his day right
with breakfast at Hendry County
Schools.

Local family donates equipment to hospital


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON On Mon-
day, Oct. 22, Glenda Wilson, the
Hendry Regional Medical Center
(HRMC) Foundation Director,
had a surprise visit from Roxana
Crespo and her husband, Javier
Mederos. She had no idea that
the couple was planning to do-
nate some nice equipment to the
Foundation, when they asked her
to take a ride with them to their
home. Their garage contained
items such as exam tables, pa-


tient recliner chairs, x-ray view
boxes, and more that they wanted
to contribute. Roxana explained
that her family had donated quite
a few items to various organiza-
tions in Clewiston and wanted to
include the hospital Foundation
in their circle of giving.
Roxana is a special education
teacher at Westside Elementary
.School in Clewiston where her
children, Luis and Xavier, attend
school. Having recently moved
to the area, she and Javier love
Clewiston and feel their children


are in an arena of safety in this
community.
The HRMC Foundation appre-
ciates donations such the ones the
Mederos family have provided.
Within the past year, many in-
dividuals have given a variety of
gifts to the non-profit 501 (c)(3)
corporation. The Foundation has
received a 1999 Dodge van, radio
equipment that will permit, e-mail
communication during emergen-
cies, port-a-potties, walkers and
more, which were accepted and
forwarded to the hospital for use
in the provision of healthcare ser-


vices.
The HRMC Foundation en-
courages the community to con-
tinue their generous methods of
giving. Their most current fund-
raiser involves the sale of bricks.
Visit the Foundation House at
544 West Sugarland Highway in
Clewiston, or call (863)-983-2735
for additional information.

Alico restructures land sale agreements


LaBELLE announced.on
Oct. 25, that its. wholly owned
subsidiary, Alico-Agri, Ltd. (the
Company) has restructured one
of its previously announced
agreements with The Ginn De-
velopment Companies (Ginn) for
the sale of Alico-Agri's property in
Lee County.
The Company has three sepa-
rate agreements with Ginn. The
original contracts were entered
into in 2001 and 2003 for approxi-
mately 5,609 acres near Florida
Gulf Coast University. The total
amounts for each contract are:
$62.9 million for the first contract
for which the Company holds
a note receivable for $54.5 mil-
lion; $63.5 million for the second
contract, which is structured as
a series of option payments; and
$12.0 million for the third con-
tract, for which the Company
holds a note receivable for $1.1.4
million.
The first contract, for a sale
which closed in July 2005, was re-


structured to reduce the amount
of principal due on Sept. 28, from
$12.3 million to $0.4 million; the
amount of principal due on Sept.
28, 2008 from $12.3 million to
approximately $3.5 million; the
amount of principal due on Sept.
28, from $14.1 million to $12.0
million; and the amount of prin-
cipal due on Sept. 28, 2010 from
$15.8 million to $12.0 million.
The restructuring extends the
term one year for a balloon pay-
ment on Sept. 28, 2011 of approx-
imately $26.6 million. The note
was also revised to set the interest
rate retroactively to July, 2005 and
base it on LIBOR plus 1.5 percent.
The future payment of all interest
outstanding will be made on a
quarterly basis for the remaining
term of the note based on LIBOR
plus increasing percentage incre-
ments. The payment terms for
the second and third contracts
remain unchanged.
The Company has received, a
payment oQf $6.8 million related


to the first contract. This pay-
ment consisted of $0.4 million of
principal, $6.1 million of interest
and the balance as an expense
reimbursement. Additionally, the
Company received payment of
$3.6 million for a one year exten-
sion on the option contract, and a
payment of $0.7 million for inter-
est due on the third contract.
Alico Chairman and CEO John
Alexander stated, that he was
pleased that the Ginn contracts
could be restructured in a mutu-
ally acceptable fashion. "Due to
complications in the permitting
process and an overall slowdown
in the real estate market, we are
working with Ginn to help them
succeed in this project. We con-
tinue to be excited about the ben-
efits that the Ginn communities
will bring to the Ft. Myers area.
We believe that the contractual
modifications are mutually bene-
ficial to Ginn and theAlico share-
holders."


If my parting has left a void, Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Thank you for all the love, support and prayers we will miss forever,

The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment was on-hand, and provided
a D.A.R.E. (Drug Abuse Resistance
Education) house that made the
skin of more than a few people
crawl. According to Ms. Gutierrez,


the "house," located at the youth
center, showed the harsh conse-
quences that come with the use
of illegal narcotics.
The rows of people formed a
line that stretched far outside of
the youth center's door, with resi-
dents waiting to get inside to take
a peek.
The Clewiston Chamber of


Commerce provided the cash
prizes for the pumpkin carving
contest and intricately designs
were shown off to the judges.
"I think everybody had a good
time," said Cathy Garrels, assistant
executive director of the chamber
of commerce.
Speaking as though she had
visited a comic convention, Ms.


Gutierrez said that, based on the
success of this and last year's
events, a third one will be planned
for next year.
"We'd seen Superman. We
saw Batman. We saw a lot of pi-
rates this year," she said.

Collaborative efforts target Florida gangs


TALLAHASSEE Surrounded
by state and local leaders, Attorney
General Bill McCollum recently
announced a collaborative effort
initiated by his agency to develop
a Statewide Gang Reduction Strat-
egy. According to the U.S. Depart-
ment of Justice Office of Juvenile
Justice and Delinquency, Florida
experienced more growth in
gang activity over a 25 year period
than any other state in the nation.
These statistics underscore the
importance for the cooperative
strategy.
"Today gang activity is found in
every county in our state. My goal
in bringing together, this Executive
Group is to combine many great
resources of talent and exper-
tise and to develop a thoughtful
and deliberative Statewide Gang
Reduction Strategy," said Attor-
ney General Bill McCollum. "The
long-range plan of the group will
be a comprehensive outline that
will include efforts to educate our
youth and to dramatically reduce
gang membership and activities
throughout Florida."
The Executive Group was cre-
ated to examine the significant
and growing threat criminal gangs
pose to the safety of the citizens of
Florida. These gangs traffic illegal
drugs throughout Florida's com-
munities; are involved in an in-
creasing number of violent crimes
with firearms; regularly commit
acts of violence that threaten
public safety; and commit a large
number of personal and property
crimes. Gangs and gang-related
activities are on the rise in Florida
and the members of the Execu-
tive Group all recognize that if not
stopped or reversed, this growing
activity will translate into a much
larger threat to Florida in the
years to come. State leaders have
acknowledged the threat and ex-
pressed their commitment to take
concerted action to ensure the


safety of Florida's citizens.
The statewide gang reduction
strategy will take a two-pronged
approach -- a law enforcement
effort and an educational effort fo-
cused on prevention and interven-
tion -- to address the critical issues
concerning gang membership
identification, gang recruitment,
risk factors for youth, prevention,
crime suppression and post con-
viction or adjudication diversion.
The long-range plan will include
gang suppression and deterrence
techniques; prosecution and crim-
inal justice system enhancements;
prevention and intervention; data
and intelligence sharing; educa-
tion and training; and rehabilita-
tion and reentry efforts for former
gang members.
"Our recently completed sur-
vey asked criminal justice agen-
cies about gangs in Florida and
the results indicate that criminal
street gangs are a clear and pres-
ent threat across the state," said
FDLE Commissioner Gerald Bai-
ley. "FDLE is pleased to be part of
this collaborative effort to make
our streets safer."
While most gang activity in
Florida appears to be centered in
the cities of Orlando, Miami, Ft.
Lauderdale, Tampa, Palm Beach
and Lakeland, statistics show that
no area remains untouched. In-
formation from the Department
of Corrections reveals that gang
members are operating in every
county in the state. Recently, the
state has seen a significant in-
crease in crimes committed by
gang riembers in Panhandle cit-
ies including Panama City, Mari-
anna, Greensboro, Quincy, and
Tallahassee with growth over the
past three years. As of July 2007,
the top 10 counties with gang
members in prison are Miami-
Dade, Hillsborough, Broward, Or-
ange, Pinellas, Polk, Palm Beach,
Volusia, Lee and Manatee, in that


order.
"Gangs represent a significant
public safety threat both inside
our prisons and within our com-
munities," said Department of
Corrections Secretary James R.
McDonough. "As the number of
gangs increases, this collabora-
tion is vital as we work to negate
gang activity."
All indications are that the
number of gang members in
Florida continues to grow as well
as the number of crimes com-
mitted by gang members. The
number of felony convictions for
gang members rose from 2,759
in fiscal years 2004-2005 to 4,447
in fiscal years 2006-2007. This
represents a 61 percent increase
in crimes committed by gang
members in Florida over the past
three years. The crimes most fre-
quently committed by gang mem-
ber inmates include homicide,
armed robbery, assault, drug dis-
tribution and weapons violations.
"Gangs are no longer just a big
city problem," said Baker Co.
Sheriff Joey Dobson, President of
the Florida .Sheriffs Association.
"Law enforcement agencies in
communities as diverse as Miami
and Marianna have to come up
with creative strategies to address
the growing gang threat in our
neighborhoods, and we applaud
the Attorney General's emphasis
on a statewide approach."
"The entire membership of the
Florida Police Chiefs Association
commends the Attorney General
for recognizing the serious threat
that gang related criminal activity
poses to our State and its citizens,"
said Skip Clark, President of the
Florida Police Chiefs Association.
"This is an issue we can no longer
overlook as it impacts all com-
munities directly or indirectly. We
applaud Attorney General McCol-
lum's efforts to address and find a
working solution to this problem."


Attorney General McCollum also
unveiled a new component of his
Safe Florida website which will be
dedicated to providing local, state
and national resources for the
education and prevention of gang
activity. The anti-gang component
can be found online at http://
www.safeflorida.net/safestreets
and will include educational com-
ponents designed to reach out to
Florida's youth.
"The threat of gangs remains
a serious matter to Florida's stu-
dents and schools," said Educa-
tion Commissioner Jeanine Blom-
berg. "Research demonstrates
that academic success and posi-
tive school experiences that con-
nect students with teachers in
positive ways are two of the most
influential factors that can protect
youth from gang involvement."
In addition to the.introduction of
the collaborative efforts, the Attor-
ney General announced that his
office will be holding. a gang strat-
egy summit in the coming months
to invite input from stakeholders
and other interested parties across
the state. The Executive Group will
then work to help Florida's com-
munities form partnerships with
law enforcement officials, educa-
tors, health care providers, social
agency workers, faith leaders and
elected officials with the specific
goal of reducing gangs.
"By creating a "zero-tolerance"
comprehensive gang control
strategy, Florida will take a giant
step forward in combating gang
violence within our communities.
The development of this strategy
reflects our most solemn obliga-
tion; to protect the security and
safety of all Floridians, especially
our children from the threat of
gang violence," said Rusty Keeble,
President of the Florida Gang In-
vestigators Association and the
National Alliance of Gang Investi-
gators Association.


Finesse fishing in



shallow water


By Skeet Reese
One of the many great things
about fishing is that presents end-
less possibilities. Pretty much ev-
eryone takes to the water with a
single goal in mind: to catch fish.
Some people use artificial lures,
other use bait; but within these
two types of fishing lie a multi-
tude of options for getting more
fish in the boat.
This time of year, a lot of the
bass are in shallow water for a
couple of different reasons. First,
they are chasing shad, which are
spawning in the backs of coves.
Second, as the nights get cooler,
the surface temperature of the
water is also cooling down. So,
when the sun does rise, the first
water to be warmed the most is
the shallow water. There's a lot
of ways to fish these shallow bass
this time of year, but one that is
sometimes overlooked is a fi-
nesse approach.
When most bass anglers think
of shallow-water bass fishing,
most of them think of shallow-
running crankbaits, big Texas-
rigged plastic worms or flipping a
jig. All are very effective, but these
techniques have used for so long,
why not switch it up?
Two of my favorite finesse
techniques for catching shal-
low fish are the drop shot and
the wacky rigged soft bait. Most
people think of the drop shot as
a deep-water technique, but by
adjusting the distance in between
your hook and your weight you
can fish this bait extremely shal-
low.
For drop shot, I use a 7-foot
medium-action spinning rod
and an Abu Garcia spinning reel
.spooled with 8-pound Trilene
100 percent Fluorocarbon line.
Fluorocarbon line is important in
this technique because it is less
visible underwater. I like a small
octopus hook or wide-gap hook
tied to the line with a Palomar
knot. Leave about 8-10 inches of
line below your hook and attach
a 'A-ounce drop shot weight.
A Green Pumpkin Berkley
Gulp! Sinking Minnow and a


Berkley PowerBait Hand Pour Fi-
nesse Worm are two great drop
shot baits. Cast the baits near ar-
eas likely to hold bass in ambush
(around structure, primary depth
changes) and shake the rod tip.
By shaking the rod tip, you keep
the bait in the strike zone but are
moving it just enough to make
it look alive. If you don't get bit,
drag the weight a few feet and
start over.
Another effective method for
shallow bass in clear water is a
wacky rigged soft bait like a Berk-
ley PowerBait Fat Dover Crawler.
The wacky system allows you to
keep the bait in the strike zone
longer and it creates a lot more
action with the bait. If you rig a
bait straight and you twitch it
once, it is going to easily move 2-
3 feet away from any fish within
the strike zone. With the wacky
system, it creates a lot more resis-
tance in the water. It pushes the
water more and makes the worm
kick, giving you a lot more move-
ment out of it. That extra move-
ment out of a little worm creates
a lot of strikes.
For me, my wacky rigging
equipment consists of a 7-foot
spinning rod with 8- or 10-pound
Trilene 100% Fluorocarbon line:
As far as hooks go, I use a wacky
rig hook: a short-shank, wide-
gap hook with round bends. Just
stick the hook point through the
eggs sack (or thickest portion) of
the bait and weight the bait with
tungsten nail weights, but you
could even use an actual finish
nail if you have trouble finding
nail weights.
This time of year is a great time
to go after bass. There is a lot less
boat traffic and the bass are large-
ly congregating wherever there is
an easy meal. Try a little finesse
the next time you go chasing fish
into the backs of coves and see
how slowing down and downsiz-
ing your tackle can result in more
strikes and bigger fish.

Group recommends bold reforms


TALLAHASSEE 1000 Friends
of Florida recently released a
study' identifying strategies to
stem the dramatic loss of Florida's
rural lands over the next 50 years.
Working to Sustain Florida's Rural
and Natural Lands: A Call to Ac-
tion is a follow-up to the group's
chilling report, Florida 2060,
which included the projection
that the amount of urbanized land
in the State of Florida will double
by 2060, based on current devel-
opment patterns.
"Losing seven million acres
of rural lands to urban develop-
ment is unconscionable," says
1000 Friends of Florida Chairman
Emeritus Nathaniel Reed. Unwill-
ing to accept this proposition,
Reed met with some of the state's
leading conservationists, devel-
opers, planners and agricultural
leaders to help chart a different
course for Florida's future.
Mr. Reed used that input as
he constructed the report, Work-
ing to Sustain Florida's Rural and
Natural Lands. It includes a series
of recommendations on how to
protect better Florida's vanishing
natural lands, covering such top-
ics as visioning and public policy,
economic strategies, planning
strategies and citizen involve-
ment.
Mr. Reed notes 1000 Friends
intends to work with Agriculture
Commissioner Charles Bronson,
DCA Secretary Tom Pelham, DEP
Secretary Mike Sole, DOT Secre-
tary Stephanie Kopelousos and
other state leaders to help imple-
ment the recommendations. The
report will also be presented to
the Century Commission for a
Sustainable Florida and other
statewide bodies to incorporate
into their recommendations.
"The environmental and ag-
ricultural communities are in
agreement on this issue the
need for proactive and creative
solutions to retain open green
space in Florida," said Florida Ag-
riculture Commissioner Charles
Bronson stressing the need for
action. "Without rural land, the
environmental health and beauty
of Florida will degrade, we will be
unable to grow crops to feed our
people, and the state's economy
will be deprived of one of its larg-
est economic engines."
Recommendations include re-
gional visioning t6 shape a state-
wide landscape vision.
"Instead of saying what we
don't want, we should be identify-
ing what we do want," says Tim
Jackson, President of the planning
firm, Glatting Jackson.
Currently, development is of-
ten considered the "highest and
best use" for rural lands, instead
of agriculture. The report includes


the recommendation to allow the
conversion of rural lands to urban
development only in return for
public benefit, such as the perma-
nent protection of sensitive natu-
ral and agricultural lands.
"This can be a valuable com-
plement to the state's land acqui-
sition program," notes Audubon
of Florida Deputy Director Eric
Draper.
Increasing state funding for the
acquisition of environmentally
sensitive lands is essential too, ac-
cording to Charles. Pattison, Presi-
dent of 1000 Friends of Florida.
"We must fit the right acqui-
sition tools to the right lands,"
explains Mr. Pattison. The report
includes the recommendation to
expand use of these funds to pro-
tect rural and agricultural lands
and buffer properties. Less-than-
fee approaches might be appro-
priate for agricultural lands, allow-
ing them to remain as working
lands, on the tax rolls, and under
private stewardship.
The report also .calls for the
judicious placement of well-
planned new towns, but only
in appropriate locations derived
from an ecosystem-based ap-
proach to planning. Mr. Reed ex-
plains that the citizens of Florida
must be engaged in every stage
of this process, from determining
how much growth is appropriate
and where, to helping to identify
how to make infill and redevel-
opment compatible with existing
patterns of development.
The report places emphasis on
the need to support agriculture.
"The agriculture of today may
not meet the needs of tomorrow,"
notes Peter Spyke, President of
Arapaho Citrus Management, Inc.
Strategies should be directed to-
ward finding new ways for local
agriculture to provide irreplace-
able benefits to urban dwellers
and natural systems.
"As new roles for agriculture
emerge," says Mr. Spyke, "we
must ensure that the land will still
be available as a component of
urban planning."
The report also calls for incen-
tives to rural landowners for eco-
system services such as water re-
charge and storage, sequestration
of carbon, and buffering develop-
ment. At the same time, state in-
frastructure investment should be
directed toward urbanized areas,
and annexation policies refined.
Current planning tools, such as
Transfer of Development Rights,
mitigation banking and Rural
Land Stewardship Areas need to
be evaluated and rendered more
effective, according to the report.
Florida's farmers and ranchers
have a strong sense of land stew-
ardship, according to Sonny Wil-


liamson, President of Williamson
Cattle Company in Okeechobee.
"Those who work the land
must be involved in helping to
shape such strategies," he noted.
Over the coming months, 1000
Friends of Florida will work with'
the contributors to the paper and
others to develop specific, strate-
gies that can be implemented
easily. We are also providing input
to Florida Department of Commu-
nity Affairs Secretary Tom Pelham
on improvements to the state's
Rural Land Stewardship Area pro-
gram, explains 1000 Friends' Pres.
Pattison. Sec. Pelham has also
stated that he plans to develop
cohesive rural policy for Florida.
"1000 Friends intends to partici-
pate fully in that process," says
Mr. Pattison.
"Our hope," says Mr. Reed,
"is that this project launches an
informed debate and results in
concrete strategies on how to best
protect Florida's rural, natural and

Outside dogs and barn cats need care


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
For many people, outdoors
is the only place to keep pets.
Outdoor pets are exposed to
insect and soil borne diseases
all the time and so face more
risks to their health than indoor
pets.
The same precautions
against fleas, ticks and mosqui-
toes are critical for an outside
pet since they are subject to
bites all the time. Topical flea
preventative that will also kill
other dog and cat-loving pests
are readily purchased in pet
stores or from your veterinarian
and need only be applied once
a month to protect your outside
pets.
Heartworm is another story,
however.
According to the Univer-
sity of Florida, heartworm in-
fects dogs and sometimes cats
through mosquito bites that
transmit heartworm larvae into
the animal's blood, where they
migrate into the living tissue
of the pet's heart, eventually
clogging blood flow to the ani-
mals' body. Coughing, a rough
coat and other signs of poor
health follow. Long before you
see these signs, the pet is sick.
Heartworm treatment requires
the knowledge and skill of a
veterinarian.
The best solution is pre-
vention. Mosquito control and
heartworm preventative for
outside animals, hunting dogs
and puppies, cattle dogs and
the family protector and your
barn cats, who like the cats of
ancient Egypt, keep your grain
free from contamination by ro-
dents.
Well-behaved pets are a
joy. For very little effort, you
can teach your dogs and cats
to be "ladies and gentlemen."
Basic "come when you are
called" means using the same
tone of voice and words when
you want them to come -- but
only for good things like pet-
ting or food. Never call a pet
to you to be punished. If a dog
digs where you do not want a
hole, put some broken con-
crete in the area to make dig-
ging uncomfortable. If the dog
chases cars, have a friend drive
by with another person in the
car with a loaded water gun. A
few blasts with a super-soaker
discourage the most enthusias-
tic dog. Jumping up on people
is curbed by pulling up your
knee so that the jumping dog
hits it with his chest. Combine
that with a stern "no, bad dog"
followed by praise and petting
and he will get the idea. Many


MaryAnn Morris/INI Florida
Large, high-energy dogs
adapt readily to outdoor life,
like the Border collie. Bor-
der collies were bred to herd
sheep. Outdoor pets need at-
tention and protection from
the weather and disease-car-
rying insects.
cats respond to your body lan-
guage and eye contact. Look the
cat in the eye, then look at some-
thing else and see if your cat does
not follow your lead. It can hap-
pen, honest.


Lighting
Continued From Page 1
"That's a whole length of
road," Mayor Chamness said. "If
you go down any of our streets,
there is usually lighting. This
is probably an abnormal area
where there isn't development
on the other side."'
Although the city's obligation
has been met, if staff decides that
the long roads warrant additional
lighting, she hopes to bring that
up to her fellow commissioners.


Backyard
Barnyard

Spaying and neutering is ba-
sic. It is not unnatural or unkind.
Domesticating animals,has given
them a safe haven in which to
reproduce freely. Too much gets
them run down, injured in fights
and puts them more at risk since
they roam and do not stay close
to your yard. Low cost spaying
and neutering clinics, funded by
charitable organizations exist.
Ask your veterinarian, or search
on line. Outside pets work for
you, they deserve the best.

"If it's dark over there and they
feel there is a safety issue, then
that's something we need to look
at," she said.
There may be other compli-
cating matters with placing ad-
ditional lighting along the roads,
issues such as whether the banks
along the canal would compro-
mise a light pole.
"We need to be careful about
the integrity of the canal banks,"
she said. "That can raise a lot of
issues."

Youth 'problems'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, C'le\ iit> i1
Our children and young peo-
ple are growing up in a prob-
lem-oriented society. They hear
more about problems in a'week
than we used to hear about in,
several months, They are filled
in on all the problems besetting
the society into which they were
born.
At school they have classes
and discussions on problems.
The talk shows on the radio
abound with problems and peo-
ple's ideas of solutions to them.
They can read "Dear Abby" and
find out about people's prob-
lems. Manyof them group with
the idea that they aren't wanted,
that they have been nothing but
trouble to their parents, and that
we already have too many peo-
ple. Wherever they turn (home,
school, business, world) there
are problems.
And, of course, if we have
problems (and surely we will be-
cause everybody else does), we
must have counselors at schools
to handle our problems.
Let me take you back a few
years to the 20's and 30's. Yes,
there were problems in our
world then, too the "crash" of
the Wall Street stock market, the
closing of banks, the Depression,
the drought years, etc. In cities
people walked the streets out
of work and stood in soup-lines
to get a little bit of something to
eat. Farmers lost their farms and
people their homes. Businesses
went under. But you did not
find ulcers among youngsters
over it. You did not find nervous
break-downs among youth.
There was no talking "trips" on
dope or letting our hair grow to
protest the mess the adults had
gotten us into. Nor did we need
counselors at school to help us
cope with our problems. Do you
know why? We were allowed to
be children and young people
(to play, to go to school, to enjoy
ourselves), and the school and
the home didn't bother us with
the magnitude of the problems
going on.
Suppose they had worried us


with the economic picture, had
had us discuss the solution to
the Depression. What could we
have done about it? What would
we have done but worry about
it?
Suppose they had told us
back there that we shouldn't
have to walk to school or ride
a horse to school but that we
should be hauled to school.
Suppose we had been told we
shouldn't have to bring a cold
lunch in a lunch bucket or sack
to school but that the school
should be serving us hot lunch-
es. Suppose that we who lived
on farms, or in small towns had
been told that youngsters in city
schools had a lot of advantages
that we didn't have. What could
we have done about it?
Well, if we couldn't have
done anything about these
things and a hundred other such
things, wasn't it wonderful that
we didn't know the problem
existed? We would have but
burdened ourselves with the
problems of the world at an age
we should have been free from
them.
Someone may suggest that
young people today have more
problems. Possibly so, but for
the most part it is, "our" fault
and not primarily theirs. "Our"
divorces have broken many of
their lives. "We" have shoved
"sex" at them at a terribly young
age. "We" have allowed them
to have their own cars at a very
young age (and wrecks and end-
less expenditures of money and
high insurance rates), and these
worries we never knew years
ago. No wonder they want to
get married younger, get away
from home when it was not
so true years ago, want to vote
at a younger age, etc., etc. No
wonder they want to "march"
and "protest" and want to tell
the government how it ought
to handle everything. No won-
der we have so many youthful
criminals when criminals used
to be a few men somewhere in
their 40's.
But have we made them bet-
ter because of all the above?

In a world of forks and knives, be a spoon


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Simple every day things some-
times give us stirring illustrations
for life and living. Take the uten-
sils we use as we
partake of our
daily nourish-
ments. A group
of us were sitting .
around a table y
after lunch dis-
cussing the mat-
ters of the world
when the con- John
versation took Hicks
a much deeper
direction. We started discussing
forks, knives, and spoons. If you
were asked, would you classify
yourself as? Would you say you


were a fork, a knife, or a spoon?
I remember someone at school
reaching to snatch something off
of the food tray of my brother. He
stabbed their hand with his fork.
Ouch! When fork people are in-
volved, there is usually snatching
and stabbing involved.
We all probably have had some
experience with fork people. Fork
people tend to worry about what
is on their own plates. These are
the people who have a "stab it
and grab it" attitude. They are the
ones who never seem to have
enough on their own plate to sat-
isfy themselves and tend to reach
out and stab up anything they can
sink their tines into, many times
without asking.
And then there are the knife
people. No matter what is placed
before knife people, it is never


quite right. They try to figure out
how they can carve it up into a
new shape that suites them or
makes them more comfortable.
The sharp blade of the knife goes
to work, .slicing off anything they
find offensive or questionable.
Knife people often tend to use
cutting remarks and often times
cut other people down.
If I had a choice, I'd be a
spoon. Spoons are distinctly dif-
ferent, because instead of taking
or cutting, spoons are designed
to serve. Because their shape is
less specialized, spoons are more
adaptable. You can eat steak,
spaghetti, or soup if you have a
spoon. If necessary, spoons can
even do some cutting.
I have noticed that a silver-
ware service for four includes
four knives, four dinner forks,


four salad forks, but eight spoons.
That's because the utensil manu-
factures know that spoons get
used for more things and in more
ways than do knives and forks.
A spoon offers sustenance
to others. Spoons exist for one
purpose only: to serve and save.
Spoon people are adaptable.
They can operate in a variety of
venues. Whether it's hot soup
or freezing ice cream, they can
scoop it up. Spoon people serve
others, but they are also good at
stirring things up when neces,
sary. Spoons are a great image of
a Christian lifestyle, a ministry in
motion.
Spoons have only one pur-
pose: They are designed to serve.
In a world of knives and forks --
be a spoon.


All Saint's Day and the people under God


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Thursday, Nov. 1, is traditional-
ly All Saint's Day. Our spiritual an-
cestors remembered those who
were the heroes of the faith and
were grateful for the examples
they gave us. When there was
some known time of their birth
or death, the day was commemo-
rated on their yearly calendars
and special intentions were given
for those who were models for us
all. As time went on, many people
were added to the calendar. As
the end of the year approached;
a day was set aside to remember
all of God's saints All Saint's Day.
Some came from the pages of
the Bible, others were celebrated
for the things they did after the
Biblical era. The reason they're
worth remembering is that they
gave their lives for others, stood
up against injustice, helped the
needy, did what they were called
to do.
I think they're worth remem-
bering and each time their day
comes up on the calendar, they're
included in our worship services.
A part of our problems today is
that we seem to have lost a sense

als on which we' are founded;
those saints looked to God and
He was the ultimate source of
their inspiration and guidance.
There is something curious about
those who would limit God as
our inspiration still; and who
riight wish to remove the words
"under God" from our Pledge of
Allegiance.' I wonder just whose
guidance we might be under if it's
not, "under God." Who might be
a better example, a better model?
Should we say, "one nation un-
der Bush," or "one nation under
Congress," or "one nation under.
the Supreme Court," or just who
or what? Should we change who
we are "under" every four years;
that would be a bit inconsistent
and seem to deny any ultimate
authority or values. I don't think
it is better that we're under "no-
body" but can't come up with a
better alternative than to be "un-
der God."
We still need someone to serve
as our examples, our guides, our
models; and every now and again
when I hear those in high places
mention prayers or looking to
God, I think we did a good thing
when we added those words to
our Pledge.

country as our heroes who gave
us examples and models; and
who counted on their religious
values to guide them through.
They were "under God" if we read
of their lives and beliefs. Likewise
Churches remember those who
were their spiritiial "forefathers"
and who were definitely "under
God" in their generations. I've
heard of those who want to re-
move ".under God" from our
Pledge but I haven't heard of a
good substitute to replace Him.
In fact, I don't think any answer
-will come quickly, if at all.
In the meantime, I'd suggest
leaving well enough alone. We
remember our great Presidents,
we remember our Church Saints;
those who have done worthy
things, who have looked to God,
and who are our heroes and ex-
amples still. We remember God
as well; He was the inspiration
for all of those others who lived
"under God:"
It is fitting for us to thank Him
and remember His special people
as we think about our allegiance.
All Saint's Day-Nov. 1, remember-
ing the people under God; Our
nation valiant leaders under
God, too.

Clewiston Tigers' comeback clinches its district title


By Jeff Barwick
Special to Clewiston News
It was a comeback win that
Tiger fans could ever remember
for comparison purposes. Playing
dismally throughout the first half,
Clewiston had spotted the Inlet
Grove Hurricanes to a 20-0 lead
and appeared to be just going
through the motions and wait-
ing to catch the bus home. The
game began at 4 p.m. due to no
field lights at Inlet Grove and the
Tiger faithful could recall that the
Tigers had always had problems
with afternoon games.
But, something happened
during intermission and the Ti-
gers who showed up to finish
the game were markedly differ-
ent than those that played the
first half. The winning drive was
set up by P.J. Runkles recovery
of Will Davis' onside kick, after
point man Adam Trevino cleared
out the Jnlet Grove player trying
to field the short kickoff. Tailback
Colin Ricketts then blew through
the line and raced 41 yards to give
. the Tigers a first and goal at the
7. The Tigers finally took the lead
with 2:35 remaining in the game
when senior fullback Alex Rubio
pounded in from a yard out. The
win moved the Tigers to*3-0 in the
district and gave them their third
straight district championship.
For a game that ended so
beautifully, it started very ugly.
The Hurricanes scored on their
first two possessions and Clewis-
ton seemed unable to slow them
down. But, some quick defensive
adjustments stopped the bleeding
and Inlet Grove didn't score again
until late in the half. Nevertheless,
neither the Tigers nor their fans
were too optimistic as the teams
went in for halftime.
The Tiger defensive front be-
gan immediately putting strong
pass rushing pressure on Hur-
ricane quarterback Terry Btad-
den, one of the top-rated pass-
ers in the area. He was thrown
for huge sack losses-three by
Delvin Hughes, one by Deangelo
Huston and another by Antonio
Williams. The defensive play kept
the Tiger offense on the field and
.the strategy paid off. Clewiston
put together, a 13 play drive that
ate almost seven minutes from
the clock. The rushing yards were
hard earned with Rubio getting
the longest gain with an 11 yard
burst. Key to the drive was two
timely fourth down pass comple-
tions by quarterback Isandro
Marquez. The first was a 14 yard
catch by wideout Paul Peterson
that moved the ball to the Hur-
ricane's 27. Then on fourth and
goal from the 13, Marquez faded
back, slipped to his left to avoid
rushers and fired a strike into the
corner of the end zone where an
outstretched P. J. Runkles caught
the ball.
The final period could not
have been executed much better
by the Tigers. Clewiston scored
early in the period after a short
Hurricane punt had given them
the ball at the Inlet Grove 25.
Marquez hit Petersen with # 16-
yard strike, Rubio hit the line for


"We came back in the
second half a different
team. Our offensive line
started blocking and
opening holes for us.
It feels great to win the
district, especially in a
comeback win."
Colin Ricketts
6 and then Colin Ricketts carried
twice to get the final yards for the
touchdown. Will Davis' conver-
sion brought the Tigers to a 20-14
deficit.
The Hurricanes then mustered
their only drive of the second
half, getting to the Tiger 5 before
having to settle for a 24 yard field
goal. The Tigers came roaring
right back. Ricketts gained all the
yards on a six play, 80-yard drive
with a 62-yard dash being the big-
gest chunk. He got the score on a
five-yard plunge. The Tigers then
tried a trick play from placekick
formation but the snap was mis-
handled and the play stopped.
Clewiston then pulled off
the textbook onside kick with
Runkles recovering at the Hur-
ricane 48. From there, Ricketts
and Rubio did the running duty to
win the game for the Tigers. The
Hurricanes had one last stab at a
comeback but it ended quickly
with cornerback Peterson inter-
cepting a Bradden pass and the
Tigers ran out the clock.
Clewiston held Inlet Grove to
a negative 18 yards rushing in the
second half and thwarted their
potent passing game. Rubio,
from his linebacker position, led
. the effort with 10 tackles. Senior
defensive end Delvin Hughes had
8 tackles and three quarterback
sacks and a running sack for loss-
es totaling 44 yards.
Ricketts, exhausted after the
game from having gone both
ways all night, said, "We came
back in the second half a different
team. Our offensive line started
blocking and opening holes for
us. It feels great to win the district,
especially in a comeback win."
Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, "Running the ball is our
game and we came out after the
break, and did just that. Our staff
is so proud of the effort these kids
made tonight, playing with a lot
of heart and coming back as they
did." After an emotional pause, he
added, "Ricketts and Rubio were
our team leaders. Even being be-.
hind 20-0, they wouldn't quit and
kept their teammates going."
After a 0-5 start to their sea-
son against a tough non-district
schedule, the victory was the Ti-
gers third straight district win and
assures them home field advan-
tage in the first round. While the
Tigers will host St. Andrews this
Friday in their final district game,
they would still be champions
no matter the outcome based on
having already beaten Inlet Grove.
The Hurricanes dropped to 3-1 in
the district and 6-2 overall but se-
cured the district runner-up spot
for postseason play.

Setting goals for lifestyle changes


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry/Glades Health Dept.
We all set goals for things we want
to accomplish, but how often do we
meet our goals when they are about
eating better and being more physi-
cally active? When you are planning
for your goal, think about four things:
1. How long will you try to reach this
goal? Keep it short. 2. Is it easy to do
in your regular daily life? Keep it re-
alistic.
3. Is it limited in scope? Be specif-
ic. 4. How often will you do it?
Keep your goals realistic. Don't try
to do too much too quickly. Here are
three examples of realistic goals.
Eating: For the next month (how
long), four days each Week (how
often) I will eat two pieces of fruit a
day -- one at breakfast and one as an
afternoon snack. (realistic and spe-
cific).
Eating: The next five times (how
long) I go to a fast food restaurant
(how often), I will order a small
French fries and a single hamburger,
rather than a large French fries and


double hamburger (realistic and spe-
cific).
Physically active: For the next
month (how long), four days each
week (how often) I will take a 15
minute walk after lunch (realistic and
specific).
Pay attention to the idea that the
eating goals are not "I will eat more
fruit" or "I will eat healthier." The
-activity goal is not "I'll walk more."
These goals aren't specific like the
examples above and are very hard to
measure much less to accomplish.
Start with 1 to 3 goals-at a time.
Write them down. Put them in a
place where you will see them often
-- on the refrigerator, your bathroom
or bedroom mirror, or in your purse
or wallet.
The next question will be did you
succeed? How did you do at mak-
ing the change? Once the time you
set is over, look at the goals you set.
Ask yourself these questions: Did you
succeed? Did you set your sights too
high? Did something happen in your
life to keep you from being success-


ful? If you were successful, give your-
self a big pat on the back or maybe a
reward like a trip to the movies.
Wait, you are not done! Making
a change for two weeks or a month
does not mean that it will stick for life.
It's so easy to slip back to old ways.
Practice the new habits faithfully. It
will take months before they become
your way of life. If you weren't suc-
cessful, try again. Revise your goals
or choose easier ones. Make sure
they contain the four parts of setting
a goal that's within reach. Make sure
you want to make changes in this
area and that you are ready, willing
and able to meet your goals. What
next? Start the lifestyle change cycle
again. Choose some new goals to
work on. Slowly, goal by goal, over
time you'll be eating healthier and
being more active and you'll be at
a healthier weight. You'll also be on
your road to preventing or delaying
type 2 Diabetes, hypertension, heart
disease and some types of cancer
just to name a few more benefits of a
healthy lifestyle.

Bright orange pumpkins may be
one of the symbols of Halloween,
but pumpkins are much more than
a holiday decoration. Pumpkins are
high in beta-carotene, shown by their
bright orange flesh.

to the scalded cream or milk in the
recipe. Traditionally the entire sur-
face is sprinkled with granulated
sugar just before serving. The custard
is then placed under heat so that the
sugar quickly caramelizes and be-
comes brittle. Although this step can
be omitted, the brittle sugar creates
a delicious flavor and texture con-
trast to the smooth, creamy custard
beneath. This recipe is the American
version of Cremes Brfilees, whiqh
uses pumpkin as the flavor base. It is'
very easy to make. Enjoy.

1 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, canned,

from oven and allow to cool in wa-
ter bath. Cover with plastic wrap and
