Teacher accused of soliciting


Teacher allegedly
attempted to hire
15-year-old call girl
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - J. Scott
Holsclaw was arrested in 2006,
reportedly accused of attempt-
ing to hire a prostitute.
He submitted his resignation
to Bexley High School in the afflu-
ent community of Bexley, Ohio,
and then took a job teaching


seventh grade
language arts at
Clewiston Mid-
dle School. '
On Oct. 31,
the 49-year-old
was arrested
by the local
police depart- ott
ment. Accord- HoIsclaw
ing to police,
he is accused of carrying on
communications to meet with a
15-year-old prostitute at a local
apartment complex.
Police claim Holsclaw used


his personal and school com-
puters to relay messages to the
prostitute.
They met up with the man on
after he responded to an online
profile of a girl described as a
15-year-old living in Clewiston.
The subject sent an e-mail in
response to the online ad using
the monilker "JS Holsclaw," ac-
cording to the Clewiston Police
Department.
When given a choice between
a 22-year-old female and the 15-
year-old, the suspect reportedly
stated he was nervous about the


"underage part." He nevertheless
said he liked the girl's pictures and
provided his telephone number.
The suspect reportedly used
slang words to learn more about
the "services" that the girl was
willing to perform, and pointed
the undercover officers to a Web
Site listing numerous slang words
for the services.
Police say the suspect wanted
to know what "was on the child's
menu."
According to the report, offi-
cers found evidence of the man's
activity with prostitutes on Inter-

Holsclaw was a middle school
teacher in Clewiston. IP address-
es in the e-mails were traced
back to the middle school.
The exchanges were frequent
and fast, happening mostly on
Oct. 31, and the subject admitted
he was nervous talking about it
by e-mail.
Later in the day, a state pro-

Murder


suspects


named


in case
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - On Nov. 1, the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
formally charged two men who
had been previously detained for
alleged burglaries as the suspects
who acted in a murder/arson in
Montura.
The two men, Vernon Dwayne
Stevens, 24, and Raymond Al-
berto Diaz, 44, now face charges
of robbery, arson and murder in
connection with the Oct. 17' crme
that ended the life of 60-year-old
Epitacio Antonio Hernandez-Bel-
tran.
After emergency workers re-
sponded to the scene of the crime
at 236 Avenida Del Sur and found
the body of a man burned and
strangled -- bound by his hands
,and feet -- deputies with the as-
sistance of FDLE agents quickly
canvassed the community for an-
swers.
According to information from
the sheriff's office, one rumor
that day was that Stevens was
hiding from police because of his
involvement in the case. When
officers first spotted' him, Stevens
reportedly tried to escape but was
later detained.
He denied knowledge of the
crime and told officers that his
friends could prove he was at
home during the time of the ar-
son, according to information
provided by the sheriff's office.
When officers spoke to them,
they said they had only seen him
in the morning the day before the

School authorities respond


to violent video clip


School officials
react in wake of
fight after school
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - In the vid-
eo, a high school student who
had been walking to her locker
can be seen exchanging blows
with another student, who
wears a red shirt.
In the span of 53 seconds,
the two girls punch each other


and grab each other, eventu-
ally pushing themselves to the
floor, where the girl in red be-
gins pounding'on the other.
As of Tuesday night, the vid-
eo of the Clewiston High fight
had been seen nearly 3,000
times on YouTube, the popular
video sharing Web Site.
According to various sourc-
es, the two girls had already
scuffled before the fight near
the locker bays, but school au-
thorities didn't catch the fight
before it worsened.
By the time it was over,


one of the girls had suffered
scratches to her face and neck
and burst blood vessels in her
eyes. Her face was blue and
black from the fight.
Both were suspended.
In the wake of the fight, the
girl's family wants to know why
the school couldn't respond
quickly and break up the fight.
In the video, the domi-
nant girl steps off of the other
and walks away, picking up
her purse and maneuvering

U.S. Army Corps reviews dike safety


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
Yet another report was recent-
ly released on the condition of the
Herbert Hoover Dike. On Friday,
Nov. 2 the U. S. Army Corps of En-
gineers (COE) held a telephone
press conference to announce
the release of the Herbert Hoover
Dike Consensus Report. This
newest report came on the heels
of two 2006 reports, one commis-
sioned by the South Florida Water
Management District and one by
COE. This latest report, for the
most part, endorsed the findings
of those previous studies.
' "Public safety is our number
one priority," said Eric Halpin, P.E.,
special assistant for dam and levee
safety for COE in Washington, as
he opened the press conference.
He said that a panel of six experts
in industry, government and aca-

Historic


Preservation


Grants holds

workshop
TALLAHASSEE - Secretary of
State Kurt S. Browning announced
recently that the Division of His-
torical Resources would hold
a Historic Preservation Grants
Workshop November 15 from 9
a.m. to 5:30 p.m. in Room 307
of the R. A. Gray Building at 500
South Bronough Street in down-
town Tallahassee. This workshop
will offer grant writing and grant
management training related to
the Division's Historic Preserva-
tion Grants. The workshop is free
and open to all interested parties.
Due to space limitations, atten-
dance is limited to 40. Based on
the response to this workshop,
another may be offered.
The workshop's morning ses-
sion from 9 a.m. to noon will
concentrate on types of grants
offered by the Division, appli-
cation instructions and tips for
improvement, and an overview
of the grant review and funding
processes. The afternoon session
from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m. will con-
centrate on grant management
skills. Topics to be discussed are
grant award documents, project
scheduling, advertising and con-
tracting "for goods and services,
grant progress-reporting, dead-
lines, and schedule for disburse-
ment of grant funding. Time will
be reserved at the end of both
sessions for questions and com-
ments. This workshop is offered
in preparation for the Division's
December 17 deadline for sub-
mission of "Small-Matching" His-
toric Preservation grants. Eligible
'applicants are Departments or
agencies of the state (including
universities), cities, counties and
other units of local government
and not-for-profit organizations.
To view a workshop agenda,
hotel list and parking map, and
to RSVP for the November 15
workshop, visit the Historic Pres-
ervation Grants Web site at www.

'member of the Historic Preserva-
tion Grants staff at (850) 245-6333
or toll free at 1-(800) 842-7278.


demics were enlisted to conduct
an independent external review
of the dike. He noted that some
of the panel's recommendations
have already been acted upon.
According to Allen Bud, team
leader on the Herbert Hoover Dike
project for COE's Jacksonville Dis-
trict, this report is a "good news
story" that contained no surprises
and supported conclusions of the
two previous reports.
Dr. Donald Bruce, one of the
panel members, said the panel
was very impressed with current
surveillance and monitoring of
the dike being done by COE.
Mr. Bud said COE was look-
ing at an emergency spillway to
release large amounts of excess
water from the lake. A spillway
is only concerned with releasing
water for flood control purposes
as opposed to a flow way pro-


posed by some environmentalists.
A flow way would be concerned
with ecology. Part of the problem
with controlling the lake level is
that six times as much water can
enter the lake as can be currently
be released.
Throughout the report, the ele-
vaton of 17 feet was mentioned as
the magic number above which
the lake should not be allowed
to rise until dike rehabilitation is
complete. The panel judged an
elevation of 11.6 feet would cause
no problems to the dike.
Since design philosophies
have evolved over the years the
panel recommended that specific
remedial concepts be adapted to
specific sections of the dike.
The corps had divided the
levee into numbered segments
called reaches. However, the
numbers are not consecutive.


The panel agreed with earlier
studies that stated that segments
of Reaches 1, 2 3, and 7 are in
the "urgent and compelling" cat-
egory requiring immediate atten-
tion. These reaches are along the
southern and eastern side of the
lake. Okeechobee is in Reach 5.
The panel recommended that
COE perform detailed risk analy-
sis of each vulnerable stretch of
the dike as soon as possible.
The panel concurred withth the
general rehabilitation approach
of filling in the toe ditch and quar-
ries and constructing cutoffs and
seepage berms.
The extent and timing of reha-
bilitation efforts will depend on
how much funding is provided by
Congress.

What does it mean?


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry County Dept. of Health
It seems every food you look
at has something on its packag-
ing claiming it is healthy- low fat,
low sodium, high fiber or sugar
free. What do those claims really
mean?
Let's start with the word
healthy. To use the word healthy a
food must be low in fat, saturated
fat, cholesterol and sodium, and
contain at least 10 percent of the
Daily Values for vitamin A, vitamin
C, iron, calcium, protein or fiber.
A lite on the label means it
contains 1/3 less calories of 1/2
the fat per serving than the origi-
nal version. Low calorie means
if contains 1/3 the calories of the
original version. Pay attention to
that difference! For example if the
original product had 90 calories a
lite version would have less than
60 while a low calorie version
would have no more than 30! No
wonder we are confused when
trying to make good decisions.
Finally, no calorie or calorie free
means it contains less than 5 calo-
ries per serving-just check what a
serving is and make sure you're
not having more than you think!
How about sugar free? It must
contain less than 1/2 gram of sugar


per serving but word of warning
- it can contain sorbitol, mannitol
or other sugar alcohols which can
cause intestinal distress. Again
watch serving size! Sugar free
should be paid careful attention
especially for use by diabetics.
Sugar free does not mean carbo-
hydrate or calorie free! No sugar
added means none was added in
processing but the product may
not be sugar free. An example
would be fruit packaged in syrup
(or lite syrup) that would have
added sugars, and fruit in its own
juice that has no added sugar.
Next is no fat or fat free. That
means it contains less than 1/2
gram of fat per serving (the same
for trans fat free). Again watch
how many servings you are eat-
ing. Low or reduced fat means
it has at least 25 percent less fat
per serving than the original and
low fat means less than 3 grams
of fat per serving. An example is
reduced fat cream cheese, which
would have at least 25 percent
less fat than original cream cheese
and nonfat cream cheese which
can have up to 1/2 gram a serving
and still be fat free.
Next weekwe'll talk about sodi-
um and words like low, little, good
source of and rich in and high.

Letters to the Editor


On the Riverwatch
The Caloosahatchee River Citi-
zens Association/Riverwatch, a
river advocacy group formed in
1995, has been dedicated to the
protection of the River and its wa-
tershed, through education and
promotion of the responsible use
of the river for the enjoyment of
all people.
In recent years, there has been
a "disconnect" between Nature
and people, particularly children,
due to their lack of interest in the
outdoors. People will never care
for Nature if they are not actively
engaged in the outdoors.
The proposed LaBelle - Caloo-
sahatchee River Community Park,
with its 176 acres, provides an ide-
al place for passive, nature-based
activities for residents in Hendry
and Glades counties. The devel-
opment of such a park, with its
nature trails, fishing pier, butterfly
gardens, kayak beach and picnic
areas, provides ample opportuni-
ties for family fun and healthy out-
door activities for all ages.
CRCA also advocates the cre-
ation of an oxbow on the wa-
terfront, which would create
productive aquatic habitat with
passive use of the waterfront. We
envision not only maintaining, but
also restoring the historic riparian
habitats which are irreplaceable
on the vast majority of the devel-
oped riverbank. This oxbow will
provide rare learning tools for stu-
dents in elementary through high


school.
CRCA encourages the devel-
opment and implementation of
a park plan created in close co-
ordination with adjacent property
owners and residents, for the ben-
efit all of the area residents, young
and old alike.
It is the hope that by providing
opportunities for safe and healthy
outdoor experiences on the banks
of the historic Caloosahatchee,
our young people will develop
a love for the outdoors and the
River and will continue that ap-
preciation, respect and love for
Nature in their adult years.
Marti Daltry, President
CRCA/Riverwatch

A series of questions from small businesses


By Sean Moore
It's a very busy time of year
as we head into the holidays
and much of what we are work-
ing on involves your friends and
neighbors. It's very exciting! The
holidays actually bring up an in-
teresting question. So, in place
of an email submitted question, I
thought I would use this as a topic
for this week's discussion.
I really need the holiday sea-
son to be huge to carry me
through, what is the best way to
make sure that happens? This is
an interesting question and varies
by industry, but I think I can help
here. The answer I try to give is


pretty simple. If you are a busi-
ness that deals in the retail mar-
ket, then you have to simply: be
current! What does that mean? It
means to be sure that your stock
carries what people will be look-
ing for this year.
Crazes, in buying are simply
what the public is looking for at
any given time. Let's go back a
few years and recall the beanie
baby craze. They were the most
sought after item on the market,
so what happened? Every place
carried them! You could go and
get a tank of gas and a slushie
and get a beanie baby with your
purchase! Everyone hooked on


to the craze and beanie baby
sales went through the roof. As a
business owner, you should take
a little bit of time and do your
current market research Surfing
the internet, watch the news, or
reading a newspaper will tell you
what is "HOT!"
If you want to really know
what the latest craze is, ask a kid!
In many cases, they only think
they know everything but when
it comes to the latest crazes, they
really do!
Finally, if you have the prod-
ucts they want, shout it from the
rooftops! Radio, newspaper, or
some type of promotion must


be used to get someone in your
store. Word travels quickly so, if
you have the "must have" item
of the season, spread the word! If
it is kept a secret, you'll be stuck
with an item that is no longer a,
"must have" item long after the
craze is over. Be smart, be ready,
and be current! Hope that helps!

United Way launches annual campaign


FORT MYERS - More than
700 volunteers and community
leaders gathered at the Harbor-
side Event Center to celebrate the
United Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades 50th Anniversary Cam-
paign Kick-Off. Campaign Chair,
and President, CEO and Chair-
man of the Board of Chico's, FAS,
Scott Edmonds urged the crowd
to support the United Way and
said, "By supporting the United
Way, in helping our neighbors
receive the assistance they need,
together, we can make a differ-
ence in our community."
The program opened with a
rousing performance from Buddy
Holly and the Crickets. Broadway
Palm Dinner Theatre provided
the performance to coincide with
this year's theme "Giving Rocks!"
The goal for this year's cam-
paign is $7.28 million. Thanks to
the generosity of our community,
the campaign is off to an amaz-
ing start.
Edmonds announced that
the 80 pacesetter companies -
those who run their campaigns
early to demonstrate United Way
support and to encourage others


- along with early leadership
gifts, have already raised a total of
$4,083,358. This represents 56%
of the goal and Pacesetter compa-
nies set the pace with a huge 12%
increase in giving over last year.
Pacesetter Chair, Gino Littlestone
of Oswald Trippe & Company
was overjoyed with the results.
"The fact that these companies
had a double digit increase over
last year is amazing. This really
shows that Giving does Rock in
our community," said Littlestone.
Publix had a record breaking
year and raised the most of any of
the pacesetter companies again
with $1,141,026. Publix has been
a long and generous supporter of
the United Way, and has repeat-
edly set new records over the past
eight years.
Six other companies also
exceeded the $100,000 mark:
Chico's with $300,000; Oswald
Trippe and Company Inc. with
$265,000; Lee Memorial Health
System with $141,720; The
News-Press with $118,151; Lee
County Government employees
with $116,392 and LCEC with
$105,000. The top 15 Pacesetter


companies are listed below and

All money raised in the United
Way campaign stays in the lo-
cal community to help support
the local human service net-


work of partner agencies. United
Way agencies like Alvin A Dubin
Alzheimer's Resource Center,
Children's Advocacy Center, Big
Brothers Big Sisters, and LARC
serve a diverse range of needs in
our community such as nurtur-
ing children and youth, strength-
ening families, meeting critical
needs such as helping the elderly
and disabled live independently,
and empowering communities
by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds
for human service organizations
in our community, the United
Way promotes partnerships and
collaborations among agencies,
helping them to work together
focusing on issues and solutions
that continue to improve lives.
This year is the organization's
50th anniversary. The United Way
of Lee, Hendry and Glades has
been "the way the community
cares" since it was established
in 1957. For more information
please call United Way of Lee,

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.

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 retinopathjr. 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 retinopathy 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.

W Arroyo Ave. on Nov. 12, at 8:30
and 9:40 a.m. and 1:15 p.m.
Mr. Schwartz is the author of
How Much is a Million? and al-
most 50 other books, including If
You Made a Million, G is for Goo-
gol, Q Is for Quark, If You Hopped
Like a Frog, and the "Look Once,
Look Again" science series. His
latest book is Where In the Wild?
A popular speaker for children
and educators, The author em-
phasizes the importance of math-
ematics in everyone:s life, and
the many connections between
math, science and literacy.
"Children love numbers," Mr.
Schwartz says, "and when they
see how numbers connect to their'
everyday lives, they can get really
excited about math." At schools,
he uses amusing props to make
mathematical concepts come
alive as he leads his audience
on a fascinating journey through
a world where mathematics
opens doors to understanding the
world.
In his presentations, as in his
books, Schwartz is both enter-
taining and educational. His as-

Westside's Principal, Mr. Shearer, puts money into water jugs
to kick off "If you made a million ... pennies" war in honor of
the visiting author, Mr. David Schwartz who wrote the Millions
series. Each grade level will have a five-gallon water jug in
their area. All pennies will be placed in the jugs by the stu-
dents as they bring them in. Of course, a good strategy is for
students to also bring silver coins and paper denominations,
too -- to boost their totals! Money will be counted daily. Totals
will be posted on a chart on the office window! The winning
grade level will earn a Cotton Candy Party!

to meet the criteria, everyone
in the class had to take at least
1 AR test, have an overall aver-
age of 85 percent or more as a

books tested were Non-Fiction.
Each week Mrs. Springfield (CES
Principal) rewarded classes that
met this criterion with a flower
outside their door in their flow-
erpot.
. This will continue each nine
weeks. At the end of the second
nine weeks, each class who
earns six flowers or more will re-
ceive popcorn and a movie plus
a dress down day. Please encour-
,age your child to read their AR
books at home so they can help
their class earn flowers for their
Blooming Garden Bouquet.

Teacher
Continued From Page 1
agreed to pay more money to the
"prostitute" if he didn't have to
use protection.
He asked to pick up the girl,
but wanted reassurance that the
xom'nIri at the end of the line
wasn't a cop and wouldn't get
him "in any trouble."
At approximately 6:45 at an
apartment complex on East Al-
verdez, the man was taken into
custody without further incident
while he reportedly waited for a
girl to exit from one of the apart-
ments.
Further investigation of the
man's .home revealed what offi-
cers described as a "proclivity for
all things child-like." Though he
lived alone, the home contained
dolls, stuffed 'animals, pictures
of children and cartoons, among
other items.
"This, coupled with his pre-
sumed obsession of obtaining
the services of escorts/prosti-
tutes, is a dangerous combination
through my unique experience
and knowledge," wrote Detective
J. Spence in his report.
Holsclaw now faces three
felony charges, for obscene com-
munication to seduce a child, so-


licitation of prostitute under the
age of 18 and sex offense against
a child 12 to 15 years of age.
Police reports indicate
Holsclaw's arrest in Ohio mir-
rored what transpired locally.
Ohio's NBC 4 reported in June
of 2006 that surveillance of the
man at an apartment complex
in Westerville, Ohio led to his ar-
rest when officers claimed that a
woman was "to perform sexual
acts for this gentleman," one of
the investigators told the news
station.
Holsclaw resigned from his
position as drama teacher, but
pleaded not guilty to the solicita-
tion charge.
According to Tom Conner,
Hendry County superintendent,
Holsclaw actually reported his
Ohio arrest in his employment
application.
The district was aware of the
specifics of the arrest, but when
they called to get more informa-
tion, they found that the misde-
meanor charges had been cleared
or dropped.
Calls made to Franklin County
Clerk and the city of Westerville by
the Clewiston News revealed the
same -- no records of the charge
existed. Officials with the city of
Westerville explained that the re-
cord may have been expunged if


no traces of it could be found.
According to Mr. Conner, the
charges Holsclaw faced in Ohio
were not severe enough in nature
to warrant the department of ed-
ucation barring him from teach-
ing in Florida.
"By all accounts, he was doing
a good job as a teacher," said Mr.
Conner. "But we're tickled that
the local police department found
him and we're glad that this did-
not happen on campus."
Holsclaw has been suspended
from teaching pending the results
of the charges. If the case is solid,
Mr. Conner said, it seems likely
that the suspect will never teach
again.
Angie Cypress, the suspect's
next-door neighbor, was shocked
to learn what happened. The
mother of three younger children,
she said the suspect rarely was
seen out, except when he let his
hound dog out. He lived alone.
Omaida Cavazos, another one
of his neighbors, said she and her
husband recently helped the sus-
pect make repairs to his home.
"This is unbelievable," Ms.
Cavazos, with children of her
own, said.

Fight
Continued From Page 1
through the crowd as though
nothing happened.
"No teacher ever approached
either one of them," said Kelly,
the victim's sister. "My sister went
to the principal's office and said,
'We just got in a fight'."
Kelly was particularly dis-
turbed after seeing how the
crowd of students formed a circle
around the fight to watch, instead
of stepping in to break it up.
"They were egging it on," Kel-
ly said.
According to the grandmother,
the fight could have been avoided
if school officials had been on
watch immediately after classes
were dismissed for the day.
So severe was the beating, ac-
cording to the grandmother, that
she convinced officials to push
the suspension back a few days
to spare the girl the embarrass-
ment of returning to school in her
condition.
It didn't have to happen, she
said.
Responding to the concerns,
Clewiston High School Principal
Dr. Robert Egley said the school
has ramped up its supervisory


duties at all school locker bays,
but he admits that it is difficult to
completely prevent incidents like
these from occurring.
While teachers are assigned
to various posts throughput the
school, once classes let out, teach-
ers are no longer on their duty
posts, the principal explained.
"We have teachers assigned to
duties, but they don't stay there
all afternoon," said the principal.
"We have teachers doing morn-
ing duty, lunch duty, afternoon
duty - with only 56 teachers, that
spreads them pretty thin."
It is simply impossible to be
everywhere at all times on such
a large campus, Dr. Egley ex-
plained.
"We do everything 'we can to
prevent fights," he said. "Many
times fights occur and kids know
about it and we don't know
about it. Sometimes they take it
to where there is no adult super-
vision. If they really, really want to
fight and a knock down like that,
they plan it to where we don't
have a lot of people. That could
very well be what happened."
According to the principal,
the latest fight is one of only five
fights that have happened at the
school since classes began in
September.


"That's not many at all," said
Dr. Egley. "The number of fights
is down dramatically. Had it been
this time two years ago, we prob-
ably would have had 10 or 12
fights, with eight to 10 kids ar-
rested."
When administrators receive
information about a possible
fight, the assistant principal and
principal sit down with the stu-
dents and chart a course of ac-
tion -- going so far as to map out
which way students can travel on
campus so that "their paths do
not cross."
Regarding the fight involving
the two girls, the principal called
the situation "unfortunate," and
said the issue was brought up
during a recent faculty meeting.
For the family of one of the
girls, the security measures ar-
rived too late. They remain skep-
tical that the fight could not have
been stopped by an authority
figure.
"When I was in school, the
teachers had to walk out of their
classroom (to supervise)," said
Kelly. "I don't understand how a
teacher wouldn't have heard all
that commotion."

was after that point.
Police searched the camper
where the suspect said he was
and found property that Hernan-
dez-Beltran's wife, Jan Rozier,
identified as belonging to her.

Tigers sail past St. Andrews; Sweep their district


By Jeff Barwick
CLEWISTON - After opening
the season with five straight non-
district losses, the Tigers com-
pleted their sweep of their district
play by defeating Boca Raton
St. Andrews, 28-14. Already de-
clared District 2A-6
Champions and -,.-.
assured home , (. -
field advantage -.--
for the first game - .
of the playoffs,
Clewiston dominated the Scots
early and then muddled through
the later stages of the game. The
Tigers will host Bishop Verot, run-
ner-up in District 2A-5, on Nov. 16,
at Cane Field as the playoffs begin.
The Vikings feature a potent pass-
ing game and will present a tough
challenge for the Tigers.
Junior tailback Darris Hughes
led the Tigers by scoring all four
touchdowns and piling up 213
yards rushing on the night. After a
scoreless opening period, Clewis-
ton racked up three scores in the
second period on runs by Hughes
of 5, 6, and 56 yards. He came
back to get the final Tiger score on
a 32 yard dash in the third period.
Tiger kicker Will Davis converted
all of the extra points.
The first -half was nothing but
Tigers. Although unable to score
in the opening period, Clewiston
controlled the ball and only al-
lowed the Scots four offensive
snaps and no first downs. The
second period was more to the

Tigers' liking as they scored early
.when Hughes carried off tackle
for five yards. After holding the
Scots and forcing a short punt,
the Tigers quickly covered 34
yards. A 22 yard scamper by quar-
terback Isandro Marquez got the
offense to the 17 and Hughes got
the final six yards a few plays later.
Another short punt by the Scots
and an eight yard return by Zack
Waddell gave the Tigers the ball at
the Scots' 47. After a Tiger hold-
ing penalty and two snaps that re-
sulted in only a yard, Hughes took
the ball off the left side, broke
clear and raced wide for a 52 yard
score.' The Scots were held to no
first downs and only 12 yards of
total offense in the half.
The second half featured some
liberal substitutions by the Tigers
and the play got a little careless.
The Scots were unwilling to lie
down and kept fighting to stay in
the game. Taking possession near


Quarterback Isandro Marquez scampers for a 22 yard run.


midfield after a short Marquez
punt, St. Andrews mounted their
first drive of the game and quarter-
back Joey Lancos on a yard sneak
with 2:06 remaining in the third


period. The Tigers roared right
back as Colin Ricketts returned
the kickoff 33 yards. From his tail-
back position, Ricketts then ran
for 13 and 7 yards before Hughes


reeled off his 32 yards scamper for
the Tigers final score of the game.
The Tigers lost the ball twice
on fumbles in the final period
and the Scots took advantage of


the first one that they got at the
Clewiston 22 yard line. It only
took them three plays to score to
make the score 28-14. The Scots
put a scare into the Tigers when
they recovered the second fumble
at the Tiger 40. But penalties for
delay of game and holding set the
Scots back and the Tiger defense
held to keep the game safely out
of reach.
I Tiger Coach Larry Antonacci
said, 'Well, a win is a win but we
played sloppy in the late stages.
We were substituting trying to
give our two way players a break
and turned the ball over twice."
Starting. Tiger tailback Colin
Ricketts was the workhorse for the
offense and had 104 hard earned
yards on 23 carries. The Tigers
played without Delvin Hughes,
who began the year as a solid
Division I prospect, who was per-
manently removed from the team
prior to the game for disciplinary
reasons relating to school policy.
The Tiger defense was domi-
nating in most stages of the game.
Defensive end Willie Armstrong
finished the night with 10 solo
tackles, a couple of assists, two
quarterback sacks and.was in the
Scots backfield all night. Line-
backer Alex Rubio and corner-
back Allen Gaines both had pass
interceptions, with Gaines return-
ing his for 21 yards.
Clewiston travels to
Okeechobee this week to take on
very good Brahmans team in the
regular season finale.

Perils of


prosperity
By Jackie Miller
First Christian Church, Clewiston
"What this country needs is a
good depression", a bitter busi-
nessman said recently. He was
joking of course. No one aware
of the human misery brought
about by the economic ordeal
known as the Great Depression
of the 1930's would seriously ad-
vocate a depression as a remedy
for America's ills.
There's no denying that many
of America's problems are the re-
sult of an inability to handle mate-
rial abundance. But that's not an
economic problem. That's a spiri-
tual problem. The cure isn't de-
pression, or any other economic
remedy. The cure is repentance!
America must be turned to God!
"Every good gift and every per-
fect gift is from above, and cometh
down from the Father of lights,"
(James 1:17). A terrible judgment.
awaits those who forget this truth,
who wallow in the blessings of
God but refuse to worship the .
God of blessings. I call it the "Peril
of Prosperity." The Lord issued a
grim warning about this peril in
Deuteronomy 8:11-20.. Through
His servant Moses He said: "Be-
ware that thou forget not the
Lord thy God, in not keeping His
commandments, and* His judg-'
ments, and His statutes, which
I command thee this day: Lest
when thou has eaten and art full,
and has built goodly houses, and
dwelt therein; and when thy herds
and they flocks multiply, and thy
silver and thy gold is multiplied,
and all that thou has is multiplied:
Then thine heart be lifted up, and
thou forget the Lord thy God...and
thou say in thine heart, "My power
and the might of mine hand hath
gotten me this wealth. But thou
shalt remember the Lord thy God:
for it is He that giveth thee power
to get wealth..."
"And it shall be, if thou do at
all forget the Lord thy God, and
walk after other gods, and serve
them, I testify against you this day
that ye shall surely perish. As the
nations which the Lord destroy-
eth before your face, so shall ye
perish; because ye would not be
obedient unto'the voice of the
Lord your God." ,
America has eaten and is full.
It has goodly houses and dwelt
therein. It herds and flocks, its sil-
,ver and gold have .multiplied. But
-America has fallen victim to the
�Peril of Prosperity. Morally, Amer-
ica is bankrupt. Marriages have
dissolved like snowballs on a hot
stove and many don't even bother
with marriage but live together
without it. Sexual licentiousness is
rampant., Homosexuality is wide-
spread and many look upon it as an
acceptable lifestyle, but God calls
it an abomination. Abortion has
become an accepted alternative
to responsible, loving parenthood.
(Millions in tax money is used for
women who say they are too poor
to pay for their own.) Alcohol is
and has been a serious problem
with estimates of the number of
"problem drinkers" ranging in the
millions. Illegal Drugs continues
to be a major problem.
-America doesn't need to re-,
peat the Great Depression. Ameri-
can needs to return to the Great
Physician!


Always do remember the treasure you are


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I know a number of people
who are big into yard sales. They
believe that one person's trash
is another per-
son's I treasure.
I believe it. The -
Clewiston Gar- . " =
den Club had .. ... ,
its annual rum- .-
mage sale last ', ..
Saturday - you x-, *
should, have ' .An
seen the trea- John
sures they had! Hicks
Even more, you
should have seen the way people
snatched up some of those trea-
sures!
I shouldn't talk. Many times in'
my childhood I gleaned treasures


from the neighbors' trash pile be-
cause I figured I could find some
use for that perfectly good "stuff"
they were tossing out. There
were times that I found treasures
that we kept for months before
my dad sneaked them back out
for the garbage collector to pick
up.
It's hard for me to throw
things away, because I always
get to thinking that some day I
will have a need for that particu-
lar item. But it can get extreme.
I recently went into our garage
and found things I had forgotten-
we had and others that I hadn't
used for years. Sometimes I get a
little envious of those who have a
philosophy that if it hasn't been
used in a year, they need to get
rid of it. If it hasn't been missed,
it's going out the door. If there is
no current use for it, it's gone. It


is good that some groups have
' rummage sales, because it is an
inspiration for me to clean out
'the closets of things I don't need
or use anymore.
These scenarios are also
played out in our relationships.
There are those who look at life
in a way that they never want, to
throw away or give up much of
anything. If they aren't careful,
they might find that friendships
and relationships are neglected
or sacrificed when their lives be-
come full of clutter and activities.
Sometimes these relationships
are even forgotten.
On the other side, there are
those who want to dump a rela-
tionship at the first sign of trouble
figuring them a waste of time. If
they have no use for it, then it's
gone.
In reality, most of us know


someone, maybe a friend, a
family member, or a colleague
at work, who might be thinking
that his or her life is useless or of
no worth because to them, no
one cares. Maybe they have been
dumped on, maybe they just feel
like trash because they feel they
have been forgotten or aren't
.worth the effort.
Fortunately for us, God figures
that each person is worth the ef-
fort. God doesn't throw people
away and He doesn't forget about
us. According to God, everyone
is a treasure. And yes, believe it
or not, God does go through the
trash piles of life looking for those
of us who have been trashed or
discarded, giving the promise
of restoration and new life. God
doesn't see the trash; He sees the
potential of treasure. Even more,
God literally makes treasures out


of trash. Many times, we are the
instrument God uses to make this
transformation possible.
In the book of Genesis we are
told that we were created in His
image and God did the creating.
God created us to live in close re-
lationship with Him - not just to
know about Him. If you have any
doubts about how far He would
go for you or how much He
cares for you and wants to be in
relationship with you, remember
what the Bible says happened six
hours one Friday in the book of
John.
God laid down His life for all
of us because He loves all of us.
God doesn't make junk; so let's
not live junky lives. God makes
treasures. Remember the trea-
sure that you are. Share it with
.others.

Preferences in faults and sins: who said there are favorites?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I recall a story about a mother
who was worried about her son
who seemed a bit nervous. The
doctor told her "He seems pre-
occupied with his hands." The
mother replied "I don't know
why, I wash them for him eight
times every day."
SAt times we get "pre-occu-
pied" with something and fail
to realize we've lost perspective.
One person complained about
lack of enforcement in one of the
federal agencies and was told that
terrorism is a priority right now,
not some of the other "crimes."
I remember when everyone was
supposed to have a fall-out shel-
ter because of the possibility of
atomic war. Today, they are more
of a curiosity, but the possibility
of atomic war is just as real as
ever.
. Human nature seems to latch


onto something and become pre-
occupied with it; as is one sort of
tragedy or fear is greater than an-
other. It may be so for awhile, but


not so for the
long run. In so-
ciety or religious
circles, we seem
to have times of
"pet sins" as if
one sin is worse
than another
and certain ones
can be blissfully
ignored for the
time being. Ev-

Samuel S.
Thomas


eryone is against murder and
abuse, as they rightly should be.
Nobody gets too upset when a
scandal hits the papers and we
seem to find it more amusing
than sinful when someone is
caught in a compromising situa-
tion.
Stealing is usually regarded as
wrong; especially if you are the
victim, but all right if it is from
somebody that is not liked or


from a government. In reality, our
view of "sinfulness" is tempered
by cultural overtones; the Lord
didn't rank-order the .Ten Com-
mandments or suggest we should
concentrate on some but not oth-
ers: We can shrug our shoulders
and recognize Paul's analysis of
the whole mess: "There is no one
righteous, not even one (Romans
3:10)." It seems while we are
pointing out the sins of others,
they return the favor and point
out ours; both of us, though, fall
short. 'Paul concludes that we
will not be "declared righteous"
in God's sight by "observing the
law (or that portion we happen
to like) but rather "through the
law, we become conscious of sin
(v.20)" I think this is a religious
way of saying that we aren't go-
ing to make it by choosing what
rules we would like to obey and
condemning others for violating
them; by feeling good because
we respect our favorites and ig-
nore the ones we secretly (or not


so secretly) like to commit; then
finding someone to look down on
because they break our favorites,
but may do better with the ones
that cause us problems. What's
the "antidote?" Paul goes or in
Romans to say "There is no dif-
ference, we all fall short (v.22)." ,
If there is "justification" it is to
be understood as we understand
those we love in our own lives;
and then realizing that God un-
derstands that way, too. I have to
recognize that the people I love
are imperfect and not capable of
being the ideals that I'd always
like them to be.
Someone recently shared with
me about how they "blew up" at
a friend who made a "stupid mis-
take" and "should have kn6wn
better." I suggested that the tar-
get of the anger was not capable
of doing what once might have
been done; age had taken its' toll.
Demands and expectations were
made that are no longer possible
to meet.


Every parent must ask, is it too late for my kids?

I know of a wonderful mother
whose household finances were
always in disarray. Many a time
the electricity was about to be cut
off and her husband would be fu-
rious. His explosions didn't help,
but he didn't offer to take charge
of paying the bills, either. We all
have our good areas and our
nbt-so-good ones; God seems to
know this and provides a recog-
nition about it all when He pro-
claims through His apostle that
we are "justified freely through
His grace (v.24)" and that we are
justified ultimately by our faith.
Thanks be to God for that: now
we have something to really be
thankful for, and something to
help us recognize that others
have their faults - as we have,
ours. Most of all, God is great
enough to see beyond it all and
love us anyway. That's really a
great reason for going to Church
and giving thanks. He doesn't
need to rank-order, overlook, or
ignore, but loves anyway.

Nativity Display

This big, full-color outdoor display is a dramatic and
easy way to share the warmth and joy of the holiday
season with friends and neighbors. Printed on
weather-resistant paper with waterproof, "sunfast"
inks, the Nativity display includes the 14 figures pic-
tured plus instructions for building the stable. The
camels, stand about five feet tall.
The only materials needed are the posters, a few
sheets of exterior plywood,' waterproof glue, paint
and sealer. The whole family can help put the figures
together in a weekend or two.

CLEWISTON - U.S. Sugar
began its 2007-08 sugarcane har-
vest season, delivering sugarcane
to the Company's newly enlarged
and automated sugar manufac-
turing facility that has a process-
ing capacity of 42,000 tons of
cane per day. The company plans
to harvest approximately 162,946
acres, yielding an estimated 6.2
million tons of sugarcane and 13
million cwt of refined sugar. This
crop will be similar in size to last
year's crop, with residual dam-


age from the hurricanes and the
drought.
"The culmination of three
years of hard work and strategic
planning amidst ongoing, op-
erations, our Clewiston facility
is now the world's largest fully
integrated cane sugar mill and re-
finery," said Robert Coker, Senior
Vice President, Public Affairs. "It
will allow us to be the lowest
cost sugar producer in the United
States and a lower cost producer
than Mexican sugar facilities."


According to Mr. Coker, free
trade agreements and negotia-
tions with additional sugar-pro-
ducing foreign countries mean
more foreign sugar entering the
U.S. market. The increased ef-
ficiency of the new milling op-
erations is aimed at ensuring that.
U.S. Sugar is competitive into the
future.
The construction project,
termed "Breakthrough" for its
dramatic. consolidation and trans-
formation of the Company's
two older raw sugar milling op-


.erations, incorporates the best
sugar technology from around
the world. Initiated in October
2005, it was at one time the larg-
est private industrial construction
project in the United States. The
project was completed in three,
one-year phases concurrent with
ongoing harvest and milling ac-
tivities. Phase III, which included
the demolition of 90 major pieces
of equipment, installation of 262
new pieces of equipment and
284,000 construction man-hours,
was completed just before the


harvest began.
"The entire Breakthrough
project was planned and imple-
mented in 36 months. It's too
bad we weren't able to get the
weather on the schedule. We
have a state-of-the-art processing
facility, but our crops are still re-
covering from multiple hurricane
damage during the worst drought
on record," Coker said.
U.S. Sugar's railroad network
will deliver approximately 1000
40-ton railcars of sugarcane from
area sugarcane fields to the Clew-


iston Mill each day. Inside the
mill, the automated system is op
erated from a centralized control
room with flat screen televisions
monitoring the major processes.
The cane stalks-are crushed to
release the juice from the fibrous
stalk. While the juice is processed
into sugar, the remaining cane
fiber serves as the clean, renew-
able energy source for both the
raw sugar mill and adjacent cane
sugar refinery, making the pro-
cess extremely energy efficient.


Compensation rate reduction to help small businesses


TALLAHASSEE - The Na-
tional Federation of Independent
Business/Florida applauds the
Office of Insurance Regulation's
approval, of the National Council
on Compensation Insurance's fil-
ing for worker's compensation
rates. The filing provides for a de-
crease of 18.4 percent on average
in the workers' compensation in-
surance rate and is estimated to
produce a savings of over $700
million. The new rate is effective


Jan. 1,2008.
"This is great news for Flori-
da's business community," said
NFIB/Florida Executive Director,
Bill Herrle. "For five years, the
workers' compensation rate has
continued to decrease, which
positively impacts business
around the state," he said.
The rate reduction was imple-
mented based on legislative re-
forms of 2003. NFIB lobbied hard
during that legislative session to


ensure that the rights of small
business and employers were
represented and protected.
NFIB/Florida's state director
in 2003 Steve Birtman praised
leaders of the House and Senate'
for passing the measure, stating,
"The Legislature's commend-
able action promises to greatly
enhance the state's economic de-
velopment and well-being."
Director Herrle says that five
years later is a good time to look


back on the package and recog-
nize positive the impact that it
had.
Mr. Birtman was correct in
predicting the impact the 2003 re-
form would have on small busi-
ness, Mr. Herrle said. "It was a
hard vote facing legislators then,
who. were up against several in-
terests, including the trial lawyers
who were fighting against a cap
on attorney's fees, but real re-
form prevailed."


The announcement of an 18.4
percent rate decrease marks the
largest reduction since, the sys-
tem was reformed in 2003. Since
then, the workers' compensation
rate has been reduced by over 50
percent statewide. Reform was
needed to the system as a result
of skyrocketing rates and lack of
availability. Florida's businesses
were paying among the highest
premium rates in the nation for
workers' compensation rates,


with injured workers receiving
minimal benefits.
"We have come a long way in
alleviating the burden of workers'
compensation rates on Florida's
small businesses, Mr. Herrle said.
"The reduction in rates is allow-
ing employers across Florida to
more easily focus on growing
their business and protect the
livelihoods of themselves and
their employees."


Consumers may benefit from recent interest rate cut


ATLANTA, GA - The recent
decision by the Federal Open
Market Committee to cut the fed-
eral funds rate by .25 percent to
4.50 percent is designed to stimu-
late the economy and could help
consumers by lowering payments
on various types of loans.
Consumer Credit Counseling
Service (CCCS) of Greater Atlanta,
Inc., offers some tips for under-
standing the benefits that lower
interest rates can have on your
financial situation.
When the Federal Reserve
lowers interest rates, banks fol-


low suit. Commercial banks usu-
ally follow the Federal Reserve's
actions by lowering their prime
interest rates. Watch to see if your
bank cuts rates on various loans.
If you have any high-interest rate
loans, or those with an adjustable
rate, speak with a loan officer ,to
see if you can get a fixed-rate loan
at a lower interest rate.
Lower interest rates allow
consumers to consolidate debt.
Consider consolidating high-in-
terest balances into one low, fixed
monthly payment. You can count
on a predictable payment that
can eliminate your debt at the end


of the term. By saving on interest,
you can keep the unused funds
for home improvements, medi-
cal expenses or any other large
purchases. You can also use your
savings to repay the debt more
quickly.
Lower interest rates may favor-
ably affect the housing market:
The current oversupply of homes
nationwide is reducing the prices
of many homes, and the rate cut
could help lower interest rates on
fixed-rate mortgage loans. If you
have been waiting to buy a home,
now may be the time. Be certain
to check with your lender to see if


they will lower their interest rates
on 15 and 30-year fixed rate mort-
gage loans.
Possible lower rates on credit
cards: If you have one or more
credit cards, and you have been
making this payment and other
payments on time, you may qual-
ify for a lower interest rate. Check
with your lender to find out and
shop around for the best rate.
Home equity loans are af-
fected by interest rates, too: Many
people have home equity loans
where the interest rate is tied to
the prime lending rate. People


with home equity loans should
check to see if their current rate
will drop, as well as the monthly
payment. If the rate or the pay-
ment does not drop, it may be
worthwhile to call competing
banks to find a lower rate.
Continue to spend your mon-
ey wisely. With the holiday sea-
son just around the corner, now
is the time to be careful about
any spending. Take advantage of
interest rate cuts to consolidate
your debt and lower your pay-
ments, but make sure you do not
spend too much during the holi-
days. Develop a budget for your


holiday shopping and stick to it.

Governor Crist names November Hire a Veteran Month


*TALLAHASSEE - Recogniz-
ing the tremendous value of
those who have served our coun-
try, Florida Governor Charlie Crist
has proclaimed November as
Hire a Veteran Month. The Gover-
nor's proclamation reaffirms our
commitment to those who have
served our nation in times of war
and peace.
Coordinated by the Agency
for Workforce Innovation (AWl),
the Florida Department of Veter-
ans' Affairs and our workforce


partners, Workforce Florida,
Inc. and the regional workforce
boards, this initiative is designed
to remind employers of the un-
matched economic resource pro-
vided by our state's veterans.
"Florida is home to an esti-
mated 1.8 million veterans and
has the fastest growing veterans
population in the nation," said
AWI Director Monesia T. Brown.
"Our veterans possess valuable
leadership, business and techni-


cal skills gained while serving
their country. They are a versatile
Qnd well-trained resource for em-
ployers and Florida is fortunate
to have ready access to such a
highly-skilled workforce."
AWI is committed to meeting
the needs of our heroic veterans
and our employers through high
quality programs and services.
Such programs include employ-
ment and training initiatives such
as the Veterans' Employment &
Training System, Hire a Vet, Citi-


zen Soldier and the Military Fami-
lies program. Last year AWI's One
Stop Career Centers served more
than 74,000 veterans, with more
than 12,000 recently separated
from the Armed Forces.
Florida's veterans come to
the workforce highly adept with
new technology, and are skilled
and trained in a variety of areas.
The state is committed to bring-
ing employers and veterans to-
gether using the full network of
workforce partnerships and pro-


fessionals across the state, along
with the Employ Florida Market-
place, located online at http://
www.employflorida.com/.
"Demographics of veterans are
shifting with the return of young
troops who have served in the
Global War On Terrorism," said
Florida Department of Veterans'
Affairs Executive Director LeRoy
Collins Jr. "FDVA is working with
AWI to assist veterans looking for
employment to include lifetime
veterans' preference for those


seeking jobs with municipal,
county and state government."
Veterans offer Florida's busi-
nesses the benefits of high skills,
education, leadership, maturity
and dedication learned or en-
hanced during their service in the
military. By bringing recognition
to our veterans, we honor not
only their military service but also
the contributions they bring to the
workforce. Join us in honoring
their commitment and sacrifice
to our country. Hire a veteran!
