Dry season stirs up 'furry' trouble


Critters encroach
on Clewiston's
city limits
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News

CLEWISTON -- When it isn't
humans, it's the animals.
Don Gutshall, Clewiston's
police chief, explained that the
recent bouts of extreme weath-
er have exacerbated a problem
in town: animals run amok.
Yes, in general terms crime


is down and the number of call
ins to the police station seem to
be dwindling even on the eve
of the largest holidays of the
year, but none of 'that means
anything to the animals.
The critters have picked up
the slack of their human coun-
terparts in attracting the at-
tention of the police, the chief
said.
"The wildlife is coming into
town to forage," the chief said.
Beyond simply posing a
threat to nice gardens around
town and the sanity of the oc-
casional woman -- or man --


the animals can be dangerous,
Mr. Gutshall said.
The chief's department
fields animal complaint calls
and then relays them to animal
control, so he gets a good look
at the problem.
Animals finding their way to
town with growing frequency
include possums, 'coons and
even a few iguanas.
Recently, a call to the Twin
Lakes area fielded by the ani-
mal control department re-
vealed a lizard many feet in
length, according to the chief.
Residents there didn't know


what to do when faced by the
slinking animal.
Which poses the question:
how exactly do you catch a
large iguana?
"You don't," said Chief Gut-
shall. "You just flush it out and
get it out of the area."
The reason for the strange
emergence of the animals is
uncertain, but the chief said the
extreme weather might have
more than a little to do with it.
According to him, when
the weather conditions are ex-
tremely dry -- as they are now
with the current drought con-


Signs of Christmas: Clewiston decorates


INI/Jose Zaragoza

In a festive mood
Cheryl Mitchell, an employee with the city of Clewiston, takes a black brush to a light display at Civic Park on Tues-
day. City workers prepared to put up the decorative displays and expected to turn them on that night.


Workers grab lights from the dozen or so boxes for the
Christmas displays.

Gene Fullard, another city, hall employee, took careful
steps to ensure that the Christmas display was ready be-
fore the holiday season at Civic Park. He climbed a ladder
to place the last line of lights.


editions around the lake area --
or when it is severely wet, the
animals start coming out of the
Woodworks; and other parks
for that matter.
And then the calls, and the
chases, begin.
Taking the animals in isn't
very feasible, given the lack of,
space at the county jail; that
and the logistics of ordering a
variety of smaller handcuffs --
Swhich is just too much trouble
to undertake.

deadly



weekend

Two men dead,
one critical in
separate incidents
By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
It was a bloody weekend,
leaving two men dead and
one hospitalized with criti-
cal injuries while authorities,
piece together clues in two
separate incidents. Four peo-
ple are in custody in connec-
tion with one of the incidents.
The crimes took place within
a very short space of time ear-
ly Saturday morning, Nov. 24.
In the first incident, depu-
ties were summoned to the
Azteca Apartments, located at
4269 State Road 29S, at 12:42
a.m. to investigate a stabbing.
At the scene, deputies found
two victims. Alfredo Mendez
of 4270 Turkey Run had ap-
parently been stabbed in the
chest and was lying on the
ground. He was pronounced
dead at the scene by EMS
personnel. His death is being
treated as a homicide and is
under investigation.
The second victim, Geroni-
mo Diaz of the same address,
was transported to Lee Me-
morial with a laceration to his
throat.
At that point, one man

Museum welcomes



Wilson as new curator


Wilson lands
new position

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News

CLEWISTON -- Butch Wil-
son still remembers the Florida
of old.
Having been born in South
Bay and graduated from Belle
Glade, he can still picture the
long rows of blacktopped roads


dark with large groups of frogs
hopping about.
The entire scene of hundreds
of the tiny creatures painted a
unique picture of a Florida that
would, in a few year's time to
Mr. Wilson, be gone forever.
"History to me is like read-
ing a biography," Mr. Wilson
said last week in his office at
the museum. "It's the love of
my life and I hope to share that
with the community."
In his new role as museum
curator -- taking over for Jeff


Barwick, Mr. Wilson has plenty
of ideas about what the mu-
seum can do to encourage
younger generations of resi-
dents to become interested in
their history.
With just a few weeks un-
der his belt, most of his time is
occupied with learning the ins
and outs of the museum, and
he works very closely with Mr.
Barwick in setting up displays
and becoming acquainted with

Water conservation


summit December 4


WEST PALM BEACH -- With
no immediate end in sight for
the current severe regional wa-
ter shortage, the South Florida
Water Management District
(SFWMD) Governing Board in
October unanimously adopted
a resolution calling for a Water
Conservation Summit to bring
together local, state and national
experts along with a broad range
of stakeholders to develop and
implement an enduring, com-
prehensive water conservation
program for South Florida. The
Summit will take place Dec. 4
at District headquarters in West
Palm Beach.
'As this year's drought re-
minds us, the days of cheap and
unlimited water are over. Resi-
dents and businesses must de-
velop a culture of conservation
to protect our limited water re-
sources," said District Governing
Board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"Our goal is to create a long-term
water conservation program that
is active all year round, not just
during droughts, and results in
a measurable and lasting differ-
ence."
The Summit, the second in
a series of public water forums
hosted by the SWFMD, will draw
insight from the experience of
other, organizations that have
developed and implemented
successful water conservation
programs in other regions of the
country. It will bring together a
broad range of water user sectors
to assist SFWMD in providing ini-
tial input toward the drafting and
implementation of- a compre-
hensive District-wide water con-
servation program. The program
components will include regu-
latory,, education and voluntary
and incentive-based initiatives.
The Water Conservation
Summit will be hosted by SFW-
MD's Water Resources Advisory
Commission on Tuesday, Dec.
4, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.
at the agency's headquarters in
West Palm Beach. A final report
with recommendations will be
presented during the Governing
Board meeting in April 2008, Wa-
ter Conservation Month.
Morning panel presentations
by invited speakers will present
case studies on successful wa-
ter conservation programs from
other areas of Florida, the South-
east U.S. and the nation. Informa-
tion will include lessons learned
by other entities, the obstacles
encountered, their accomplish-
ments and the costs.
Scheduled presenters in-
clude:


Janet G. Llewellyn, Director,
Division of Water Resource Man-
agement, Florida Department of
Environmental Protection
Jeff Pearson, Director of
Utilities, Charlotte County Utili-
ties
Rob Teegarden, Chair,
Florida Section, American Wa-
ter Works Association and Vice-
President of the Water Business
Unit, Orlando Utilities Commis-
sion
Ane Deister, General Man-
ager, El Dorado Irrigation District

Management Coordinator, Tam-
pa Bay Water
David Self, President, Florida
Nursery Growers and Landscap-
ers Association
Jack Wilbur, Public Infor-
mation and Social Marketing
Specialist, Utah Department of

Also planned to follow this
summit is a series of approxi-
mately four monthly meetings
designed to gain input from
representatives of the various
stakeholder groups on SFWMD's
comprehensive water conserva-
tion program.
"The purpose of the monthly
stakeholder meetings will be to
obtain valuable information from
and build consensus toward a
water conservation program that
is built on collaboration and co-
operation between all those with
an interest in Florida's water fu-
ture," Buermann said.
The stakeholder groups will
include representatives from lo-
cal governments, agriculture,
nursery/landscape, utilities, de-
velopers, property owners and
homeowner associations, envi-
ronmental organizations, parks
and recreation, sports and leisure,
tourism, small business, manu-
facturing, and hospitality and
service industry. Technical advi-
sors will include representatives
from the Florida Department of
Environmental Protection, Flor-
ida Department of Agriculture
and Consumer Services, U.S.' En-
vironmental Protection Agency
and Tribes..
The Water Conservation Sum-
mit will be web cast to maximize
participation and information
sharing, allowing the public
throughout the 16-county water
management district to tune in.

By the American
Counseling Association
It's the holiday season and
everywhere people are happy
and excited...except you. In-
stead, you're feeling stressed
and depressed. It's called the
"holiday blues" and it's a fairly
common condition, though one
often hidden behind false holi-
day smiles.
One reason the holiday sea-
son can seem depressing is that
it comes at a time when we may
be mentally summing up the
year, especially its troubles and
shortcomings. Year-end memo-
ries commonly focus on prob-
lems of the past year -- illnesses,
loss of loved ones, work or re-
lationship problems, or things
falling short of our expectations
-- rather than the positive hap-
penings of the year.
The holidays are also a
busy time. Added to the nor-
mal stresses of daily living are
the anxieties of gift buying,
holiday parties, family issues,
social obligations and other
stress-inducers of this season.
Holiday media images can also
leave us with impossibly perfect
holiday expectations. Advertis-
ing, TV shows, and magazine
stories are present wonderful
family holidays that never hap-
pen in real life, but still leave us
feeling that we're falling short of
how things should be. All these


complications of the season
can certainly leave us feeling
blue, but there are steps to take
to minimize their effect on our
emotional state.
A healthy lifestyle is a good
start. Instead of overeating or
drinking excessively because
you're feeling stressed, make
conscious decisions to enjoy
holiday food and drink, but to
do so in moderation. At .non-
party times, choose tasty low-fat
foods. You'll feel better and avoid
the stress of holiday weight gain.
Other healthy lifestyle decisions
include getting enough sleep
and exercise. A brisk daily walk
in the sunshine is a very effec-
tive way to fight depression.
Studies also fine even moderate
exercise can reduce stress and
mild depression.
You also want to stay con-
nected. Feeling sad often causes
people to withdraw and isolate
themselves. Instead, make a real
effort to spend time with friends,
to call or write those you care
about and to remember past
good times you've enjoyed with
these people.
Simply talking about your
holiday feelings with friends
can also help. Their support
and comfort can make a real
difference. And while the holi-
day blues are usually only tem-
porary and fairly mild, talk to a
counseling professional.


Be 'toy recall' cautious shopping this season


TALLAHASSEE -- Attorney
General Bill McCollum has is-
sued a consumer advisory, urg-
ing parents to check toy recall
lists before shopping for their
children's holiday presents. Ac-
cording to the U.S. Consumer
Product Safety Commission
(CPSC), more than 50 toys have
been recalled since the begin-
ning of the year, most due to
toxic levels of lead or lead paint.
The toys include popular brands
such as Mattel and Fisher-Price
and millions of "must-have"
toys such as certain Thomas &
Friends Wooden Railway Toys,
Aqua Dots craft kits and some
Barbie doll accessories. I am
concerned about the stagger-
ing number of reports of tainted
toys coming into the United
States and the dangers they
pose to our children," said At-
torney General Bill McCollum.
"Parents need to do their re-
search before they head out for
holiday toy shopping. There is
nothing more important than


the safety of our children and in
this case, knowledge could liter-
ally save lives."
.The dangers don't stop with
lead exposure, as evidenced
with there call this month of
the Aqua Dots craft kit because
of toxic coating on the toy that
rendered at least two children
unconscious. While most toys
should at this point have been
pulled from store shelves, Mr.
McCollum encouraged parents
to go back and check any toys
they may have purchased ear-
lier in the year before recalls
were announced. Recalled toys
can also occasionally show
up at flea markets and resale
shops. To make it easier for par-
ents to keep track of the recalls,
the Attorney General's Office is
providing a "Do Not Shop" list
containing the most recently re-
called toys for parents to print
and take into stores when holi-
day shopping.
The list, along with links to
the CPSC's website is available


Helicopter flights crucial

to 'Glades' restoration


WEST PALM BEACH Every
day, an average of four to five
helicopter missions are com-
pleted by the South Florida
Water )Management District
flight operations team, totaling
more than 3,000 hours of flight
time each year and 1,600 indi-
vidual missions. More than 85
percent of these flights are de-
voted to Everglades's research,
data collection, maintenance
of thousands of miles of canals
and flood control structures,
regulatory inspections, water
quality monitoring, vegetation
management and other field
support initiatives critical to the
District's mission.
A fleet of three helicopters
and a seasoned crew of five pi-
lots streamline the agency's fed-
erally-mandated environmental
restoration and research initia-
tives. In most cases, the flights
provide access to environmen-
tally sensitive areas and landing
sites too remote or impractical
to reach by land. During the
height of the drought this sum-
mer, many critical sites within
Lake Okeechobee became un-,
reachable even by airboat be-
cause of low water and vegeta-
tion overgrowth. Water quality
monitoring and invasive plant
control efforts could only be
achieved through flight opera-
tions.
"As stewards of the Ever-
glades, the State of Florida is
among the nation's most ag-
gressive states when it comes
to the sheer volume of envi-
ronmental data collected, and
the need for accuracy in our
research validates the need
for helicopter transportation
to these remote areas," said
SFWMD Chief Pilot Michael
Piccone. "It is imperative that
samples from monitoring sites
be returned to District labs for
analysis immediately, so the
use of District helicopters is the
only way to. ensure timely, reli-
able data."
Federal law mandates that
the SFWMD conduct research,
environmental monitoring and
regulatory activities throughout
the agency's 18,000-square-
mile area. This includes nearly
1,900 miles of canals and levees,
more than 2,200 water control
structures, nearly 60,000 acres
of stormwater treatment areas,
and approximately 900,000
acres of water conservation
areas, comprising much of the
historic Everglades system.
To comply with these obliga-
tions, the SFWMD has installed
recorders, hydrolabs, data col-
lection and water quality moni-
toring equipment at hundreds
of sites throughout the Ever-
glades and Kissimmee basins.
Because water samples dete-
riorate after just four hours, the
District's stringent reporting re-
quirements are only achievable
using aircraft for access.
Among other critical duties,
District pilots assist in emergen-

cy flight operations, including
aerial inspections and surveil-
lance required following tropi-
cal storm events or during se-
vere droughts. Following heavy
rains, the District also conducts.
aerial inspections for flood con-
trol and to identify potential ob-
structions in local waterways
- tasks that could never be con-
ducted efficiently by land.
For more than 40 years,
aircraft use at the District has
been governed by the State
of Florida's Aircraft Use Poli-
cy and closely managed by the
District's own Travel Policy. All
flights must be approved by
District management, and each
flight is cost-justified against
commercial air travel rates.
With an annual operat-
ing budget of $2.2 million, the
District's flight operations rep-
resent a substantial savings to
Florida taxpayers. If contracted
to outside vendors, it is esti-
mated that the District's annual
flight operations budget would
total more than $3.2 million.

Holiday ideas for healthy eating newszap.c.om
Cornrnunlty Links. Individual Voices.


By Mary Ruth Prouty, RN
Think 90/10. If you completely
deprive yourself of treats espe-
cially during the holidays it is a
recipe for weight control disaster.
Would you sit a child in front of a
huge pile of candy only to tell her
she couldn't have any of it, not a
single piece, and expect her to
respond positively? Being around
delicious foods and not having a
taste is agonizing. During the hol-
iday season, aim to eat healthy
food and stay within your calorie
and fat goals approximately 90
percent of the time and the re-
maining 10 percent don't worry
about what you should or should
not eat. Enjoy a treat or two!
When a craving hits, give in
a little! If you really feel like hav-
ing a piece of candy, have it. But
stop at one! If you can't prevent


a craving, often the best way to
beat a craving is actually to sat-
isfy it a little. The problem with
many cravings is that they get out
of control when you don't satisfy
them initially. If you really feel
like having a piece of candy, have
it. Don't try to substitute it with a
range of other foods when you'll
end up eating the candy anyway.
If you obsessively avoid the food
you're craving, you're also far
more likely to binge on it even-
tually than if you have a small
amount when you first crave it.
But watch out, this advice can
be dangerous if you ignore the "a
little" part. If you know you can't
stop at a little, it's best not to start
at all.
Don't go hungry. It's lunch-
time. Patty just finished a deli-
cious grilled vegetable sandwich,


a bottle of water, a yogurt and a
fresh fruit salad. She also had eggs
on whole grain toast for break-
fast. Maria had a cup of black
coffee for breakfast and an apple
for lunch. Who is more likely to
snack on holiday treats this after-
noon? Hunger makes you weak,
in more ways than one. If you're
hungry, you lose your ability to
make good choices. Your body
and mind are on a mission to eat
whatever is available and with
all those holiday treats around,
resisting is hard. And weight
gain is easier. "Don't go hungry"
means eat regular meals and two
planned snacks each day so that
you don't get hungry. In order
to reduce cravings, binges, and
general overeating throughout
the holidays, eat enough so that
you don't get hungry.


But it's okay to be hungry.
Didn't I just say "don't go hun-
gry?" The fact is there are two
kinds of hunger. Physiological
hunger is the need to eat to stay
alive and well. This time we're
talking about hunger that you
feel because you're bored, or
stressed, or depressed, or simply
see some food you want. Re-
sponding to this kind of hunger
easily leads to extra weight gain.
"It's okay to be hungry" means
it's okay to feel a sensation that
you believe is hunger without
acting on it. This holiday season;
give yourself time to think before
the impulse to eat takes over.
When you feel "hungry" give
yourself 30 seconds to "check"
your hunger is it true hunger or
has something prompted you to
want to eat?

Holiday favorites have health benefits


The winter holiday season usu-
ally brings traditional cookies and
treats. For those concerned about
their diet and health, it's nice to
know that some traditional favor-
ites are actually good for you.
Peppermint can help diges-
tive problems. Peppermint tea
can be very soothing to an upset
stomach. According to www.
peoplespharmacy.com, coated
peppermint pills, which ensure
the herb is delivered to the small
intestine, can be purchased at
health food stores. This herb can
ease bloating, gas and irritable
bowel syndrome. Before trying
this home remedy, consult your
doctor. Peppermint can interact
badly with some prescription
drugs by changing the rate the
body absorbs the drugs.
Ginger is reputed to be a
home remedy cure for a number
of ailments. Pregnant women are
sometimes advised to munch on

with Katrina Elsken

ginger snap cookies to alleviate
morning sickness. Ginger tea is
sometimes used to prevent sea
sickness and other forms of mo-
tion sickness. Ginger is also used
as a home remedy to stimulate
the appetite.
Cinnamon has been linked to
lowering cholesterol and helping
stabilize blood sugar. It also helps
boost the metabolism.
Chocolate, another holiday
favorite, also has health benefits.
The flavonoids in chocolate are
antioxidants which help the body


rid itself of toxins.
Honey -- a key ingredient in
some of my favorite holiday cook-
ies --is also healthful. Honey has
antioxidant properties and has
been found to help the body fight
infections. One thing to remem-
ber about honey don't give raw
honey to young children (under
the age of two). There is a slight
risk that those whose immune
systems are not mature may be-
come ill from natural bacteria in
the raw honey.
However, not all holiday spic-
es are beneficial. Nutmeg, while
fine in small doses as a spice to
flavor food, can be dangerous in
high doses. According to www.
peoplespharmacy.com, high
doses of nutmeg, such as those
sometimes used in a folk remedy
for diarrhea, nutmeg can cause
flushing, dry mouth, rapid heart


rate, nausea, vomiting and even
hallucinations.
Remember: All things in
moderation. Even foods that are
"good" for you can cause prob-
lems if you overindulge.
Before making any change
in your diet or exercise plan,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you
are on any prescription med-
ications. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."

Glades General Hospital CIO wins

National Hero of Healthcare award


BELLE GLADE -- For the sec-
ond time in a year, Glades Gen-
eral Hospital's Chief Information
Officer Adam Levenson has been
recognized for his leadership in
instituting leading edge techno-
logical advances in healthcare.
The. Stuart resident was recently
awarded the Heroes of Health-
care Award bestowed by Health
Management System, Inc. Mr.
Levenson was one of six hon-
orees chosen from more than
500 hospitals nationwide by the
Nashville-based leader in hospital
information systems.
The award recognizes the in-
trepid, relentless and visionary
men and women who pioneer
the healthcare highway. Leven-
son was recognized for a com-
bination of projects completed
during the last year and a half,
including seven system imple-
mentations and upgrades as well
as staff training and retraining as
Glades General Hospital moves
toward a completely paperless
environment.
Glades General Hospital CEO,
David Zechman nominated Lev-


enson for the award. "In the past
few years, the hospital has invest-
ed millions of dollars in techno-
logical upgrades," Mr. Zechman
explained. "Apart from the whiz-
bang coolness factor, Adam has
enthusiastically paved the way for
services that have a direct impact
on the lives of our patients such as
the electronic birth registry which
allows mothers to register a birth
certificate at the bedside thus ex-
pediting enrollment in Healthy
Start and other services for their
newborns."
Mr. Levenson has been with
Glades General Hospital for. nine
years. He and his team manage
the information systems that
serve more than 270 employees
as well as outside physicians.
Earlier this year, he received the
Achievement of Accomplishment
Award from the Palm Beach
County Community Health Alli-
ance for his efforts in establishing
Allcare, a shared data computer
registry program enabling physi-
cians to access patients' medical
documentation from any hospital
within the Allcare network.

Stocking popular items brings them back


By Sean Moore
Welcome Back. In case you
missed last week, we talked
about the advantage you could
gain as a business by carrying
items recognizable to our winter
residents for the few months they
are in the area, and we discussed
the limitations many businesses
face when they try to accomplish
that seasonal stocking. I prom-
ised I would pick up last week's
article here and tell you how to
gather the information and fig-
ure out what products seasonal
guests might be interested in
having while they spend time in


Florida. Now, on to the answer!
As silly as this may sound, the
easiest way to get an answer-
is to ask! We get so caught up
sometimes in some type of clever
scheme, and we forget that just
asking is often the simplest ap-
proach. Let's look at a grocery
store: If you set up a little display
by the door that can be seen as
they come in or leave the store
with a box, little slips of paper,
and a pencil and ask them four
questions. First, what state they
are from? Second, what is the
product? Third, who makes it?
Finally, is it known by any other


name?
That last question is impor-
tant than you may think. As I am
sure many of you know, different
foods are called different things
in various parts of the country.
When I moved to Florida as a kid
I realized that nobody knewwhat
a "grinder" was- That's because
Floridians called them subs! The
other advantage to having them
tell you an alternate name, or if
they refer to it by another name
is that when/if you carry that
item(s) you already know how
to market them! If you are going
to carry items aimed at a particu-


lar target market, you might as
well call it what they are familiar
with too and they already gave
you that information. Use it! So,
when you want answers to ques-
tions about your businesses rela-
tionship with the customer, ask.
Who knew! See you next week.

Keep Florida manatees on endangered list


Reading awards
Fifth grade students earned their Accelerated Reading
Program certificates as they learned the importance of
reading in learning. They were awarded the certificates at
the recent awards assembly held at Central Elementary
School."


Tag a holiday gift to


help Florida's wildlife


A unique idea for gift-giving
this holiday season can help save
Florida's wildlife. The Florida
Department of Highway Safety
& Motor Vehicles announced re-
cently that gift certificates may be
purchased for any specialty tag in
Florida.
The Florida Fish and Wildlife.
Conservation Commission (FWC)
offers five different specialty li-'
cense plates. The purchase of any
of these plates helps in the efforts
to preserve and conserve Florida's
wildlife and natural habitats. Spe-
cialty plates currently available
through FWC are the Conserve
Wildlife plate with the black bear
logo ($15), Go Fishing plate with
the largemouth bass logo ($25),
Protect the Panther plate ($25),
Helping Sea Turtles Survive plate
($23) and Save the Manatee plate
($20). An additional $4.50 will be
added at the time of purchase
for administrative and certificate
costs.
To purchase the license plate
gift certificates, visit any autho-
rized tax collector's office, and a
credit will be issued in the name
of the gift recipient. When recipi-
ents renew their license plates
and pay the regular registration
fee, they can use the gift certifi-
cate to buy the specialty tag.
Since most tags are renewed
on the birth date of the registered
vehicle owner, these gift certifi-
cates make great birthday pres-
ents also.
To learn more about the FWC's
specialty plates, visit www.wild-
lifefoundationofflorida.com or
call 1-800-988-4889.
This holiday season, help save
Florida's unique and varied fish
and wildlife by giving a gift that
can be used year-round.

Dover, DE 19903


By Patrick Rose,
Aquatic Biologist.
Executive Director
Save the Manatee Club
On September 12th, 2007, the
IUCN World Conservation Union
(IUCN) officially declared the
Florida manatee endangered us-
ing exactly the same criteria state
officials are attempting to use to
justify downgrading the man-
atee's status from Endangered
to Threatened. After a scientific
status review at the international
level, the Florida manatee was
declared Endangered on the Red
List, which is recognized as the
most reliable evaluation of the
world's species. The manatee's
status evaluation was conducted
and also reviewed by some of
the world's most qualified sire-
nian scientists who based their
recommendation for listing as
Endangered on the most recent
scientific data.
Incongruously, that was the
day the Florida Fish & Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) was scheduled to vote on
whether to reclassify the mana-
tee to a lesser state imperiled sta-
tus a vote that marine industry
representatives and go-fast boat-
ing interests have supported for
many years. But just two days
before this monumental vote,
Florida Governor Charlie Crist
came to the rescue and asked
the Commission for a reprieve


for manatees, wisely urging them
to postpone the vote, while also
questioning the accuracy of the
method used to estimate the size
of the manatee population.
Ultimately, the Commission
listened to the governor and
unanimously voted to postpone
the manatee's reclassification,
but under pressure from boating
and development interests they
will revisit this issue at their De-
cember 5th meeting.
How could the FWC, claim-
ing to be using IUCN's widely
supported listing/delisting crite-
ria, conclude that manatees are
no longer endangered and move
to down list them? The answer
is simple. While the FWC ad-
opted IUCN's criteria for Endan-
gered species, they opted to call
species that met those criteria
Threatened, instead of Endan-
gered. Ironically, the Commission
openly declares that .manatees,
with less than 2,500 adults, face
a "very high risk of extinction"
but want to wait until a species'
risk of extinction is "imminent"
before declaring it Endangered.
A sure recipe for future extinc-
tions.
The FWC continues to non-
sensically argue that protections
won't change if manatees are
down listed. In light of the hun-
dreds of manatees killed since
the unjustifiable reclassification
process began, this argument
seems disingenuous at best. At

worst, a change in status at this
time could have serious conse-
quences like cuts in funding for
research, rescue, and enforce-
ment programs. Already numer-
ous law enforcement positions
are proposed to be cut to meet
state budget shortfalls.
Furthermore, it is widely rec-
ognized that the natural springs
and.power plant discharges that
most manatees depend upon to
survive the coldest winter days
are likely to be lost in the not to
distant future. Unless Florida's
springs are protected and alter-
natives to the power plants are
found and implemented, there
is also consensus that manatees
could suffer catastrophic winter
losses leading to more than a 50
percent decline in the current
manatee population.
With mortality continuing at a
brisk pace this year, with threats
from both human and natural
causes escalating, and with the
manatee's international biologi-
cal status confirmed as endan-
gered, it is time for the FWC to
kill the unwarranted down listing
effort. Looking beyond manatees
to Florida's other imperiled spe-
cies, it is time for the Commis-.
sion to fix their imperiled species
classification system by adopting
one where all of Florida's most
at-risk species can be fairly re-
viewed, classified properly, and
managed accordingly to sustain
and recover their numbers in the


the Block and Super- soothing
sounds. Child care centers and
family child care providers will
receive a CD for their facility. The
cost of the class is being under-
written in part by GA Foods Inc.
The registration fee is $10 per
person and pre-registration is re-
quired.. Call Darline at (863) 425-
1050 at Child Care of Southwest
for information and to register.

uver, you cdn sun auopt many or

ergy saving features to reduce
energy consumption and lower
your electric bill. In addition to
the do-it-yourself mini Home
Energ Makeover kit, these are
some of FPUs proven Top 10
Tips to save you money:
Cool your home at 78 de-
grees or warmer with the ther
mostat fan switch on "auto-."
For additional savings, raise
your thermostat to 82 degrees
or warmer when you're away
from home.
Install a programmable
thermostat to adjust the temper-
ature automatically and maxi-
mize your energy savings. It also
helps to maintain a comfortable
temperature when everyone
wakes up or rQturns home.
Clean or replace the a/c.
-800-458- filter every month to trim cool-
ing costs and help the unit run


Even if your home was not a


more efficiently.
Turn off'ceiling fans when
no one is in the room where
they are operating. A fan that
runs all the time costs about $7
a month.
Use the dishwasher to con-
serve energy. Avoid pre-rinsing
dishes to save up to-$70 a year.
Replace old incandescent
light bulbs with compact fluo-
rescent lights. Replacing'a 60-
watt porch light with a 15-watt
compact fluorescent bulb will
cost about $10, but will save
nearly $50 over its 2-1/2 year
life.
Adjust the water level on
the washing machine to match
the load size, especially when
using hot water. Always use a
cold rinse.
Clean the lint filter in the
dryer before every load. Use the
auto sensor function (if there is
one) to conserve energy by not
over-drying the clothes.

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


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


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

School Happenings


Eastside Elementary
Students at Eastside Elemen-
tary celebrated Book Week (Nov.
12-16) a little different this year.
They explored the use of poetry
and drama in
literature. Each
morning stu- r-
dents read po- -
etry to all the L .. ',' .
students for -
morning an- I .
nouncements. ..
Some of the
poems were about books; oth-
ers made you chuckle, and some
were recited as a group.
On Monday, students read po-
etry, acted out poems, 'and wrote
their own poetry.
The poems varied from shape
poems to limericks.
On Tuesday, the Clewiston
High School Drama Club per-
formed for the students at East-
side. These students made their
own props, dressed in costume,
wrote their scripts, and performed
short stories such as "Little Red
Riding Hood", "The Little Red
Hen", "The Gingerbread Man",
"Hansel and Gretel", "The Three.
Little Pigs", "Piggie Pie", "The
Giving Tree", and "Who Stole
The Tarts". Eastside students ex-
perienced comedy, drama, sing-
ing, and were allowed to interact
in many of the stories. Thanks to
Dr. Egley and Dr. Rice for allow-
ing these students to share their
many talents.
On Wednesday, students
dressed up as storybook charac-
ters and joined in a school wide
parade. The highlight of the pa-
rade was a real pig pulled around
in a wagon, representing the story
"Charlotte's Web".
On Thursday, Community
Readers joined Eastside students
as they read a variety of books to
the students in the classrooms. On
behalf of the students, teachers,
and staff, we would like to thank
all of the community readers who
took time out of their busy day to
enlighten Eastside students with


the joy of Children's Books.
The faculty and, staff shared
a Harvest luncheon on Friday in
the media center. Mrs. Goodwin's
class displayed a decorated train
cake representing the story "The
Little Engine That Could".. Mrs.
Dierks would like to thank all of
the parents, teachers, and staff for
their contribution in making Book
Week a success.

Eastside Elementary students recently learned about fire safety with a visit from the fire
department. Students were able to touch, try, listen and learn about what fire safety means
to them. Robbie Hutton and Micah Mungello suited up to show Eastside Elementary stu-
dents what a fireman looks like during a fire.

Eastside kindergarten students enjoyed holding the fire hose and pretending to put out
a fire.


Mr. Adrian Damms discussed fire safety with Eastside students.


Arrests
Continued From Page 1
was dead under suspicious cir-
cumstances and another hospi-
talized, but the night was just
beginning for Hendry County
lawmen. Another body was yet
to be found and another victim
hospitalized within a very short
period of time.
At 1:46 a.m. HCSO received
a robbery report from a victim
located off S.R. 29S. Victim Jose
Lopez Francisco, 29, told depu-
ties what happened to him and
his friend, Jose Cruz, 20.
According to the sheriff's
report, four individuals, Jaquil
L. Williams and James Henry
(Tyrone) Williams, both 18 and
from LaBelle, along with two
women, sisters Virgen Osorio,
19 and Josefa Estela Osorio (aka
LuLu), 20, both of Clewiston,
drove to the Azteca Store on S.R.
29S. The women were to report-
edly going to lure men outside
and into their vehicle with the
promise of sexual activity. Jaquil
and Tyrone Williams waited in-
'side the group's vehicle, a green
Kia, according to the report.
The report indicates that the
group left the Azteca, with Jo-
sefa Osorio driving the Kia. The
victims were taken to a location'
called the "rock, pits," near the
end of E Road. At the rock pits,
the two victims were removed
from the vehicle. The victims
were then attacked with a cue
stick and a piece of 2 x 4. The
victims were also kicked and
punched in the head and face,
the report states.
Once the victims were in-
capacitated, a total of approxi-
mately $100 was removed from
both victims; the report states.
The foursome left the area in
the green Kia, leaving Mr. Cruz
lying in the road, the report con-
tinues. Mr. Francisco was able to
walk away and later summoned
assistance. He was transported
by ambulance in critical condi-
tion.

blood stains and parts of a bro-
ken pool cue, also with possible
blood stains.
The green Kia was located
in Lee County and impounded
for forensic examination by the
Florida Department of Law En-
forcement.
All four members of the
group James Williams, Jaquil
Williams, Virgen Osorio and
Josefa Osorio were arrested
and charged with murder in
the perpetration or attempt of
robbery (one count for each),
robbery with a deadly weapon
(two counts each) and aggra-
vated battery (one count each).
All are being held without bond
in the Hendry CountyJail.
According to Sheriff Ronnie
Lee, since January, four mur-
ders have occurred in Hendry
County: two on the eastern side

of the county and now these
two on the. western side. He
said arrests have been in made
in all but the Nov. 24, death of
Alfredo Mendez.
*Sheriff Lee said he is attempt-
ing to close the dirt road leading
from E Road to the "rock pits"
where the two men were at-
tacked last Saturday. "It's just a
dumping ground," for trash, he
said, and this is the second time
a body has been found there.
The first occurred during his
first term office.
He added that Mexican men
have been targeted recently for
robbery attacks. He cautions
that no one should get into a car
without knowing the persons
inside. He also explained that
no one should fear reporting a
crime because law enforcement
does not ask victims for proof of
citizenship or legal status.

his job.
The museum now houses a
number of pieces in its gallery,
tracing the history of Clewiston
from its first founders, to the in-
dustrial development and forms a
composite of the city. Mr. Wilson
is making sure he knows every-
thing there is about the town.
One thing is clear: he is ex-
cited.
"I've never done this before,
but I love history," he said. "Even
to hold an old coin, it's a reflection
on the lives of people before."
As long as he can remember,
Mr. Wilson's always been drawn
to history.
He remembers how, as a child,
he could sit with the elderly and
spend hours talking about the
infamous hurricanes of 1926 and
1928 that left thousands dead,
and how each of them was able
to escape the rushing waters in
the wake of the storms.
The stories fascinated him.
Even his own family has a
rich history to tell about Florida,
from his great grandfather com-
ing through the Florida pan-
handle on oxen, settling in Lake
Okeechobee; his great-great
grandfather joining the Florida
1st Infantry and fighting for the
Confederates; and his great-great-
great grandfather living in North
Florida as early as the 1830s.
During the 1928 Hurricane

Butch Wilson is the Clewiston Museum's new curator.


in Canal Point, his grandmother
told him how close she was to
tying his then-infant mother to a
tree outside of the rushing wa-
ter's reach, hoping that.someone
would find her there after the
storm had left.
Mr. Wilson is a self-described
"Florida Cracker," who graduated
from Lee University in Cleveland,
Tenn. with degrees in Theology
and History.
He worked for U.S. Sugar for
31 years in its IT department, be-
fore being laid off, and found the
museum opportunity a chance to
once again delve into the subject
of history.
"Anything that has a past to it,
I enjoy it," said Mr. Wilson. "It is a
passion that I have."
In fact, Mr. Wilson found out


about the job through people
who had seen him speak about
the area's history at Lion's Club
or Rotary meetings. He had al-
ready impressed locals with his
knowledge of local history.
His only concern with history
has more to do with the sharp
development that has taken hold
of Florida, and how that has
changed from the pristine state
he used to know.
Mr. Wilson remains passion-
ate about his new job, and his de-
sire to reflect what the old Florida
used to be.
"I can remember the sky turn-
ing black with ducks," he said.

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 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.

Tiger Football


Tampa Catholic wallops Tigers in playoffs [-


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston's 2007 season
ended Friday night at Cane Field
in a game that was decided way
before the final
whistle blew in
the playoff dis-
trict semi-final
match up with
Tampa Catho- c-***""
lic. The Crusaders proved true to
scouting reports as they controlled
the ball and played tough defense
and shut out the Tigers 33-0. For
Clewiston, the loss ended a dif-
ficult season as reflected by their
5-7 record.
The Tigers, clearly outmatched
in quantity, put a quality team on
the field to begin the game. The
problems quickly surfaced when
Tampa Catholic kept running in
fresh players while the same ba-
sic Tigers were on the field con-
sistently. The Crusaders dressed
51 players for the game while the
Tigers could only suit up 28 play-
ers.
The Tigers were keeping the
,Crusaders in offensive check
early in the game. Emotions got
high when Tiger return specialist
Zack Waddell was creamed on
a helmet-to-helmet tackle as he
was attempting to catch an early
first period Crusader punt. The
blow was so hard that it knocked
his helmet off and he was laid flat
,on the turf. Miraculously, Wad-
'dell was able to get to his feet
Sand leave the field under his own
'power and to return to the game
shortly thereafter. Shamefully, the
best the officials could offer was a
five yard penalty and a Crusader
re-kick for them not allowing
Waddell time to field the punt, to-
tally forgetting about high school
sports safety and sportsmanship
in ignoring the flagrant spearing
incident. As the Tigers punted
away the ball after the following
possession, tight end Willie Arm-
strong got involved with a Cru-
sader player and Armstrong was
ejected from the game halfway
through the opening quarter. Al-
ready short on players, the Tigers
lost one of their stalwarts and any
hope of staying in the game de-
parted then and there.
Tampa Catholic took the ball
and drove to the Tiger 17 where
they were stopped and forced to
settle for a 35-yard. field goal by
Matt McLaughlin. In the second
period, the Crusaders scored an
early period touchdown when
Will Greaves grabbed a blocked


Tiger Darris Hughes shakes loose as he reels off a 70 yard run.


Fullback Alex Rubio rambles for a 31 yard gain on a trap play.


Isandro Marquez punt and raced
25yards. Defensively, theyheld the
Tigers to one first down and only
one first down. That first down
came on a 70-yard breakaway
run by tailback Darris Hughes
but he got pulled down from be-
hind at the Crusader 7 yard line.
But the Tigers couldn't convert as
a Marquez pass was intercepted.
From their 11-yard line, the Cru-
saders marched the length of the
field in 16 plays to score with just
under a minute remaining in the
half. The touchdown came when
wideout Eric Gerken caught a
8-yard pass from. Quarterback
Christian Green as the Crusaders
led 1'7-0 at intermission.
Things got no better for the
Tigers in the second half. The'
Crusaders scored in the third
when Greaves picked off a Mar-


quez pass and trotted 25 yards
for a score. In the final period,
McLaughlin hit a 28-yard field
goal and back-up quarterback
Connor Louis rushed 6 yards for
the final touchdown. Prior to
that, Linebacker Colin Ricketts
was also ejected from the game
after committing a personal foul
penalty out of sheer frustration.
The Tigers offense just could
not get on track. Other than
Hughes' 70-yard scamper, Clew-
iston only gained 90 more yards
in 33 carries. The Tigers inability
pass the ball reached a season
low point with no completions
on 8 tries and 3 interceptions.
Defensively, the Tigers played
out their collective hearts. Line-
backer Alex Rubio had 10 tackles
and an assist. But, with virtually
all of the offensive starters also

seeing significant time on defense
it was just a matter of physical
exhaustion and having given the
Crusaders two easy scores on the
blocked punt and interceptions
returns by Greaves.
For the season, the Tigers
showed a respectable running of-
fense. From the tailback position,
they got over 2,000 yards of rush-
ing with Colin Ricketts getting
1,088 yards and Darris Hughes
adding 1,047. Clewiston averaged
5.9 yards per rush on the year but
the absence of a passing game
took its toll on the offense.

The next big holiday: what it's really about


(or should be)

By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Now that Thanksgiving is
past, there is another big holi-
day coming soon.
In the interest of "political
correctness" many people will
say "Happy Holidays" instead of
"Merry Christmas" or something
with a more spiritual tone to it.
The Christian holiday is special
because it is about the Incarna-
tion: God becoming human.
Not too many years ago, I
shared in a question and-answer
session with some health pro-
fessionals and someone asked,
"What is the difference between
a psychiatrist and a psycholo-


gist?" I imagined an answer that
could have run on for hours;
talking about training, philoso-
phies of personalities, healing
techniques, un- ,
derstandings of
human beings
and on and on. !"
Instead, the doc-
tor that chose
to answer the
question said
simply "A psy- -i
chiatrist goes Samuel S.
in deeper, stays Thomas
in longer and
comes out dirtier!" We laughed,
but there was some truth to his
answer. With that theory came
healing. As I thought about it,
I remembered someone else
who went in, stayed awhile;
was affected by it and the of-


feared Himself so that human-
ity might be healed-saved-re-
deemed-given eternal life. That
is Incarnation: that God became
human so that He could "go in"
and stay awhile. He stayed long
enough to accomplish His min-
istry, touching lives and being
touched by the people He met
and served. That is what Christ-
mas is about: incarnation.
Christmas is a story about a
birth and all of the difficulties and
complications that surrounded
it. It is a story about a human
and not-so-human infant, par-
ents, visitors, politics, difficul-
ties, threats and fears, persecu-
tion, and with more hardships
than could be imagined today.
The human life came into the
world in difficulties and ended
with them. Jesus was to be


marked literally and figuratively
for having come here. "Merry
Christmas" is not all sweetness
and light; but about the triumph
of life here even with all of its'
difficulties, setbacks and trage-
dies. Each year the story is read
from the Gospel of Luke (Chap-
ter 2: verses 1-20).
I began this season by think-
ing about this next big holiday
ahead of us and wonder about
the "disconnect" that I see and
have seen for many years. All
too often there is no connection
between all of the planning, the
gift buying, the merchants wor-
rying, the trips that are planned,
the concern over gas prices, the
meals and who will come to
visit, the sending of cards, the
trees and decorations, and what
it is all about. "All of the above"


is about the Incarnation; about
God Himself coming here and
what it all means. It is about the
beginning of a new hope and
promise for all of us because
He came, stayed awhile, was
. affected and healed humanity.
In the midst of all of the busy-
ness, it is so easy to forget why
we have "Christmas" in the first
place. There is a connection
between the gathering of toys
and food to share (and the real
tragedy when someone steals
the toys and food), and the re-
ally thinking hard about just
what to buy someone special,
the invitations to share and the
special meals. It is a way of pay-
ing tribute to the One who has
given us priceless gifts, and who
has shared our meals, and who
has welcomed us by His being


here. For "Christmas" to be re-
ally "Christmas", there must be
a connection between what we
do now and what was done at
that first Christmas. I thank God
for my life and the lives of those
around me; the lives of others I
have met and the lives of those I
have yet to meet; the incarnate,
the "in the flesh" representa-
tives that bear His image. My be-
ing here is a special gift that God
has personally given to me, as
with all of us. It is ever so special
because God Himself "taking on
the very nature of a servant be-
ing made in full human likeness,
and being found in appearance
as a man, He humbled Him-
self and became obedient unto
.death ((Philippians 2: 7-8)" and
that's what Christmas is really
all about!

amazing. As John
the Scriptures Hicks
tell us in Luke
2, "In those days Caesar Au-
gustus issued a decree that a
census should be taken of the
entire Roman world -- and ev-
eryone went to his town to reg-
ister. So Joseph alsd went up
from the town of Nazareth in
Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem,
the town of David, because he
belonged to the house and line
of David."
The man seemingly making
all this happen is the Roman
Emperor, Caesar Augustus.
History tells us that he was not
a very nice man. He was, in
many ways, a monster. But it
is Caesar Augustus who turns
out to be the bit player in the
divine drama. He thinks he's
flexing his muscle with the
universal census, but this most
powerful man on earth is only
an unsuspecting instrument in
the hands of a sovereign God.
This should give us spe-
cial encouragement! God will
get His destiny couple to His


destiny place, even if He has
to move an entire empire to
do it! The Christmas story is
God's powerful statement that
God's plans are unstoppable!
The good news is that we are
included in His plans. "I know
the plans I have for you," says
the Lord, "plans to prosper you
and not harm you, plans to
give you hope and a future."
(Jeremiah 29:11)
In your current situation,
it might seem that there is no
way things can turn out right
for you. The money isn't there,
your health isn't there, the rela-
tionship looks impossible, the
job frustrations are mounting,
the mountain isn't moving,
and the answer isn't coming. It
looks as if there's no way for
things to work out, not enough
time for an answer to come.
We need to remember that
we belong to the God who,
with the stroke of an evil man's
pen, moved an empire to place
Joseph and Mary right where
they were supposed to be. And
God will get His plans for us
accomplished even if He has to
move another empire or god-
less instrument to do so.
Jesus was born in Bethle-
hem. Just getting Him there
was a miracle! So relax in the
strong arms of the God of Beth-
lehem who will move whatever
He has to move to finish what
He has started in our lives!
That's at the root of what we
celebrate at Christmas!
