Police bring holiday cheer


CPD collects toys
for the holidays
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Every year,
after the sometimes tumultuous
affair of dealing with criminals
day in and day out, some in the
Clewiston Police Department
look forward to the holidays.
Gratefully, people like Kristine
Petersen, the assistant police
chief, make all the preparations


to spend time with family, with-
out forgetting about the people
in the area who are less fortu-
nate.
Each year, the police depart-'
ment donates hours of its time
toward collecting gifts for chil-
dren and families in Clewiston
who are most in need.
The ,police department is
currently collecting toys from
the community and donations
through a special account set up
at Olde Cypress Bank in Clew-
iston. It usually averages dona-


tions to at least two dozen fami-
lies throughout the area.
"We really get out to the peo-
ple who have a need," said Ms.
Petersen.
Even the parents are given
special gifts for Christmas.
"We try to do something nice
for the parents, whether it's per-
fume for mom or a fish and rod
for dad."
The department works close-
ly with other agencies, includ-
ing the sheriff's office, and local
churches, in avoiding duplica-


Eating for worthy cause: Relay for Life


IN1. Jose Zaragoza
Studying the texture
Thomas Freyman seems ready to try a sample of one of the ten entries in the Chill Cook
Off fundraising event held at Palm Terrace in Clewiston last week. In the background,
Craig Cudworth, another of the judges, digs in. Money raised from the event will go to-
ward the nursing home's Relay for Life team. Officials there are hoping to raise at least
$2,000 to go toward fighting cancer.


Relay for Life captain, helps to serve the delicious en-


tion of services, but has plenty of
fun helping out.
But oneyear the police depart-
ment decided to stop advertising
its toy give-aways, noting how
obviously more affluent people
driving nicer vehicles would col-
lect the presents.
That had to stop, and now,
the department's explorer's unit
and officers personally identify
families they believe are most
deserving of the gifts.
The situation is made more
difficult when-families clearly in


need, rather than ask for help,
instead try to make do on their
own. These are the families that
most touch Ms. Petersen's heart,
she said.
"A lot of these people don't
say anything," she said.
She remembers one Christ-
mas especially. Hurricane Wil-
ma had ravaged the area and the
unity in the community seemed
to be at its apex.
The family had just heated a

Clewiston school
rejects As
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Eastside
Elementary-- Principal Mara
Dukes wants all of her chil-
dren to be D students.
Simply the thought of
her students collecting As
from their teachers might be
enough to fill her with dread.
She hopes that parents will
be just as excited about this
possibility and all teachers at
the school are hard at work at
the task.
" That's because the school
is focused on a radical idea
that is based around a re-or-
dered A, B, C structure. The


program is altead\ producing
some tangible results and the
gains are becoming more and
more noticeable, school olfi-
cials say.
Of. course, the school's
administration hasn't lost
its mind and academics are
measured in the same way as,
they have always been; strictly:

"We wanted; a consistent
way of talking to children,"

Another murder

Fifth homicide

It was another deadly
weekend in LaBelle. Last Sun-'

Sheriff Ronnie Lee said the
incident was definitely not a

he is releasing few details.
He said there appeared to be

Comedy acts, open
mic nights weekly
at Clewiston Inn
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Two men
stood on a small stage in the
center of the dining room area
of the Clewiston Inn. They
wore strange, colorful hats and
pranced around like two mad-
men hoping to keep beat with


a third.
'One of them proved a little'
more difficult of a muse for the
ringleader and only after re-
peated prodding did he throw
himself into the work.
It didn't help that several of
his friends were watching him.
Hoping to infuse the Clew-
iston area with a dose of cul-
tural energy, the owners of the
Clewiston Inn are hoping that a
series of entertainment events
will begin to see more resi-
dents driving across the street


rather than across the state to
enjoy themselves during the
evenings.
Last Fridad 's offering was a
comedy/magical show featur-
ing Eric Brouman.
The magician took a strange
but successful departure from
the regular magical fare and,
before the night was over, had
local residents dancing with
him, mocking themselves, and
one especially serious gentle-
man wearing a glittery hood

Holidays are an excellent time for comfort foods


The holiday season often
means bringing out traditional
recipes and passing them on to
the next generation. Some people
may try to alter the recipes to a
more "healthy" version. While I
try to cook healthy and eat healthy
most of the year, when it comes
to traditional Christmas cook-
ies, I want the real thing. I want
real butter in my sugar cookies
and real chocolate in my fantasy
fudge. And I put 13 eggs in my
lebkuchen (German gingerbread)
because that's what my grand-
mother's recipe calls for.
It has been my experience that
if I use the traditional "real" ingre-
dients, then the occasional not-
so-healthy treat is more satisfying.
As the saying goes "all things in
moderation, even moderation."
There's another reason I like to
use the traditional ingredients - at
least I know what they are. Years
ago, margarine was touted as so
much healthier than real butter.
Then we found out margarine
included transfats - not healthy
at all. I just don't trust foods that
have been chemically altered in
an attempt to make them "health-
ier." So many foods that started
out as being advertised as "health-
ier" turned out to be anything but.
Saccharine, cyclamates and trans-
fats were all originally marketed
as being "better" for you than real
sugar and fats.
Too much of anything can be
bad for you. So if you indulge in
some holiday treats, take it easy.
Take your time and really enjoy
what you are eating.
Below you'll find my mother's


recipe for sugar cookies. S
orated them with colored
and tiny candies, with cocc
Santa's beard and a red
the reindeer's nose. The
can be enjoyed plain. If yo

Before making any change
in your diet or exercise plan,


(CDC), hand washing is the single
most important means in pre-
venting the spread of infection.
The CDC estimates that 36,000
people die from the flu or flu-like
illness each year, 5,000 people die
from food borne illness each year,
and between 78,000 and 90,000
patients die each year from Hos-
pital Acquired Infections (HAI),
for which a direct link to many of
these deaths is poor hand wash-
ing.
The DOH insists the simple act
of washing your hands can make
a big difference. Two million of 33
million hospital-admitted patients
contract HAls' annually. Each
year, 76 million food borne ill-
nesses result in more than 300,000
hospital admissions. Hand wash-
ing and awareness are important
for nosocomial infection preven-
tion, food safety, school health,
personal health and disease pre-
vention. 164 million school days
are lost due to illness, of which 22
million are due to the common
cold alone.
To keep hands clean, DOH rec-
ommends hand washing:
* Before preparing or eating
food;
* Before and after tending to
someone who is sick;
* Before and after treating a
cut or wound;
* After blowing your nose,
coughing or sneezing:
* After handling an animal or
animal waste:
* After handling garbage:
* After going to the bathroom;
and,
* After changing diapers or


consult your doctor. This
is especially important if
you are on. any prescription
drugs. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."

Slip but do not complete


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Hendry County
Health Department
It's the holiday season and
temptations are everywhere to eat
and eat and eat! Then January will
come and our first goal has to be
getting rid of holiday weight. Real-
istically this is not a good time of
the year to work on losing weight
but what about making your goal
not to gain any weight?
Believe it or not there really
aren't that many people who can
eat all they want and never gain
weight. Most people who are at
a healthy weight watch their por-
tions and how much they eat.
Don't panic if you overeat at a
meal. If you eat too much, the
next meal just get back on track
with healthy'portions. Don't feel
guilty or think, 'well, I messed
up a little here, so I might as well
mess up royally the rest of the
day.' Don't let it be the trigger to
start on a negative course. It's the
holiday season and we are all go-
ing to 'mess up' at some point!
Watching portion size is al-
ways a must for weight control,
but during the holidays it's espe-
cially easy to eat bigger portions
and more of everything and that
is a major contributor to holiday


Carlson

appointed
The Administration of Wel-
lington Regional Medical Center is
pleased to announce the appoint-
ment of Melissa Carlson, MD, as
Chairperson of the Board of Gover-
nors, the first female Chairperson
in the hospital's 21-year history.
The appointment is effective im-
mediately through calendar year
2008.
Dr. Carlson, aboard certified ob-
stetrician/gynecologist, has played
an active role in the development
of obstetrical services at Wellington
Regional Medical Center since join-
ing the medical staff in 1999. She
served as Chief of Obstetrics from
2003 through 2004 and is currently
a ,member-at-large of the Medical
Executive Committee, Chairperson
of the By-laws Committee, and for
the last three years ongoing, has
served as a member of the OB/GYN
Quality Assurance Committee.
Dr. Carlson is an associate of
OB/GYN Specialists of the Palm
Beaches with an office located on
the campus of the hospital. Her as-
sociates include Drs. Steven Fern,
Julie Pass, Jennifer Bevins and
Samuel Falzone. Dr. Carlson is an
active member of many profes-
sional organizations including The
American College of Obstetrics
and Gynecology, Florida OB/GYN
Society, Florida Medical Associa-
tion and the Palm Beach Medical
Society.
"The Administration and the
Board of Governors of Wellington
Regional Medical Center is de-
lighted to have Dr. Carlson at the
helm. Her proven leadership abil-
ity, reputation as a fine physician
and commitment to the develop-
ment of hospital services, makes
her a perfect candidate to lead our
governing body into the future,"
said Kevin DiLallo, Chief Executive
Officer.

big a turkey is, for starters, or the
massive spread of food on Christ-

cookies and cakes. Be aware that
the large amount of food around
you may prompt you to want
to eat bigger portions than you
normally would eat. Make a con-
scious decision to eat certain por-
tion sizes and stick to it. Don't be
overwhelmed by the overabun-

When it comes to portion

because, contrary to the much-
quoted motto, your eyes are not

according to several recent stud-

plate determines a lot to how
much you eat.
For example, if there are 20 ca-
shews in a bowl, you might take
six or seven (52 calories). How-
ever, if there are 50 cashews in a
bowl, you're more likely to take
a handful.of 15 (130 calories). In
both cases your eyes will tell your

Drought predicted to worsen still


By Pete Gawda
INI FLorida
The water shortage is bad and
it is predicted to get worse.
That is the message Carol We-
hle; executive director of South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) gave Friday Nov.
30 to the County Coalition for
Responsible Management of Lake
Okeechobee, St. Lucie and Ca-
loosahatchee Estuaries and Lake
Worth Lagoon.
Ms. Wehle was asked,to give
an agency update to the collation,
which is made up of commis-
sioners representing counties sur-
rounding the lake.
"How can I not talk about the
drought?" she asked.
Florida is not the only state suf-
fering. Ms. Wehle gave an update
on the drought situation around
the southeast. Closer to home,
the director gave a history of the
recent water shortages and water
conservation methods in south
Florida and predicted more of the
same for immediate future.
Ms. Wehle gave a chronologi-
cal, month by month, account of
the current drought and its im-
pact on SFWMD operations. .As
the drought proceeded more and
more drastic conservation efforts
were instituted.
The district instituted over 20
drought management teams, such
as a fish kill team. When canals


dry up, fish die. This team handles
problems connected with those
fish kills. Another team deals with
stormwater treatment areas.
"Nurseries get a double wham-
my," Ms. Wehle said. They have
less water to use and the sale of
landscaping plants declines.
In April of this year, for the first
time SFMWD stopped withdrawal
from the water conservation dis-
tricts.
There was some good news as
lake levels continued to drop. The
low lake levels allowed SFWMD
to plan for muck removal from
the lake bottom.
As the-drought progressed, the
district allowed temporary wells
to be drilled or deepening of wa-
ter holes for cattle operations. Ms,
Wehle said that calves were sold
early, resulting in lower prices.
The district began to work with
local governments on water re-
strictions and enforcement
In May the lake drooped to
8.89 feet.
"That was heartbreaking," she
said.
As drought progressed, water
use restrictions increased.
On July 2, the lake dropped to
an all time low of 8.82 feet.
Ms. Wehle discussed the dan-
ger of saltwater intrusion causing
several east coast wells to be at
risk.
In anticipation of deteriorating
conditions, Okeechobee Utility


Authority modified their lake wa-
ter intake so that now the utility
can now draw from a lake level as
low as 3.5 feet.
In June all basins around the
lake went to 45 percent cutback
for agricultural use and the muck
removal began. Around the lake 2
million cubic yard of muck were
removed containing 140 tons of
phosphorous.
"This was one of that lemon-
ade out of lemons project," Ms.
Wehle said.
Torpedo grass and navigation
hazards were also able to be re-
moved due to the extremely low
water level.
By August 11,000 warning
notices and 12,000 citations had
been issued and $400,000 had
been collected civil penalties for
violations of water restrictions.
In anticipation of drier weather
ahead, SFWMD has already asked
the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers
for a continued deviation from the
lake regulation schedule.
The average year to date rain-
fall district wide January through
November is 52 inches. The cur-
rent total rainfall January through
December district wide 41.52
inches.
This year's Atlantic storms
brought no rain to south Florida.
Since some time in May Ms.
Wehle said there have been 177
consecutive days of setting all
time low records for particular


days of the year. She predicted
that number that would be a lot
larger when we come out of this
drought. Using a graph she dem-
onstrated that each day the gap
between the previous record low
for a particular day of the year day
and the level for the correspond-
ing day for this year was getting
larger.
The executive director quoted
some predictions that by next
June the lake will be down to
seven feet.
"We have begun planning for
the drought of 2008," she added.
On the brighter side, SFWMD is
planning for more muck removal,
treatment of exotic vegetation and
replanting native vegetation.
"We will be aggressive in
water conservation" Ms..Wehle
pledged. "We can look forward to
increased water restrictions."
She said the district is consider-
ing implement year round conser-
vation methods.
"This year is going to be worse
than last,"' she predicted.
However, she ended on an
optimistic note. She said that if
residential and agricultural users
do their part ifi the water conser-
vation program of SFWMD there

Water conservation critical as state enters dry season


The 2007 Atlantic hurricane
season ended Friday, November
30, officially making last month's
Tropical Storm Noel as the final
major rain event of the South
Florida wet season. Tuesday, the
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) continued to
advise South Florida residents to
prepare for a prolonged, severe
water shortage with the likeli-
hood of tighter water restrictions
ahead.
"Forecasts for a drier than nor-
mal dry season are already prov-
ing accurate, and with water levels
so critically low, now is the time
to observe more aggressive water
conservation practices," said Car-
ol Ann Wehle, executive director
of the SFWMD. "There is much
we can do both inside and. out-
side the home to collectively save
millions of gallons of water each
clayv Conservation is the simplest,,,
cheapest, most. eiecti e way to
stretch our water supplies:"


Recent rainfall
measures
SFWMD meteorologists re-
corded a half-inch of rainfall Dis-
trict-wide for November 2007, just
19 percent of the historical average
for the month. This marks the re-
gion's fifth driest November since
1932, just two-tenths of an inch,
more than the record low of 0.30
inches reached twice, in Novem-
ber 1940 and November 1944.
District-wide rainfall through
the first 11 months of 2007 also re-
mains well below normal at 41.6
inches - an eight-inch deficit rela-
tive to the year-to-date average.
Current Water Levels
Surface water and groundwa-
ter levels across most of the Dis-
trict remain unseasonably low
and already are showing signs of
decline itlh the start of the dry
season: The water level in Lake
Kissimmee, for instance, is well


below .its regulation schedule
as established by the U.S. Army
Corps-of Engineers.
At 10.26 feet above see level
this morning, Lake Okeechobee
remains nearly five feet below
its historical average - and more
than a foot below previous histor-
ic lows - for this time of year. In
fact, water levels in the lake have
been setting new record daily
lows for more than six months.
Lake Okeechobee is the source of
water for 500,000 acres of farm-
land in the Everglades Agricultural
Area and is a primary back-up
supply to more than five million
South Floridians.
Groundwater. levels in Lee,
Collier and other west coast coun-
ties are two-to-four feet lower to-
day than this time last year, with
many monitoring wells already in-
side the lowest 10 percent of their
historic water elevations. With-
out sufficient freshwater in the re-
gional system to prevent saltwater
intrusion, salinity levels in the Up-


per Caloosahatchee Estuary are
high and, should they continue to
climb, are likely to threaten oys-
ters and aquatic vegetation.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens 'can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs." ,

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Researchers say new steak's

a hit with consumers


By Chuck Woods
University of Florida
GAINESVILLE -- A cut of beef
once ground into hamburger
has become one of the nation's
most popular steaks, thanks to
a processing method co-devel-
oped by a University of Florida
researcher.
Recent figures show flat iron
steak sales now top 90 million
pounds a year, making the value-
priced cut the nation's fifth best-
selling steak.
Dwain Johnson, a meat sci-
ence professor with the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agricultural Sciences who
helped develop the steak in 2002,
said some consumers say the cut


tastes better than a New York
strip.
"The cut is as tasty and tender
as more expensive steaks, yet af-
fordable enough for the average
family to enjoy on the regular
basis, and it costs a lot less than
a choice filet or strip steak," he
said.
Steve Wald, director of new
product development for the Na-
tional Cattlemen's Beef Associa-
tion in Centennial, Colo., said 47
million pounds of flat iron steak
were sold in 2005, increasing to
92 million pounds in 2006 and
about 90 million pounds so far
this year. He said the sales data
was compiled by Technomic Inc.,
a Chicago-based research firm.

Cub Scouts gather food items


A Cub Scout promises to "give
good will" and to help other peo-
ple at all times. Clewiston Cub
Scouts from Pack 667 did just
that when they participated in the
annual Scouting for Food drive.
"Scouting for Food" evolved in
1988 as Scouting's community
stewardship project aimed at ad-
dressing the problem of hunger
in the community in which you
live and work. Through this proj-
ect the BSA directly helps meet
the needs of the hungry, while
exposing its members, particu-
larly youth, to the highest ide-
als of the Scouting movement
through practical and dramatic
experiences in the principles of
the daily Good Turn. "Scouting
for Food" shows cub scouts how
to put words into action. "Scout-
ing for Food" helps youth realize
they can help have an impact
on community problems. This
experience has given our scouts
the chance to feel good about
helping others. This value, when
learned early in life, can become
a life-long example. The Cub

items. The non-perishable goods were distributed to local organizations.


Scouts collected approximately
300 pounds of non-perishable
items. The non-perishable goods
were distributed to the following
local organizations: First United
Methodist Church, St. Margaret's
Catholic Church, Community


Presbyterian Church, First Chris-
tian, Church, and The Salvation
Army. In addition, Pack 667 was
able to sponsor two local fami-
lies and provide them with a
Thanksgiving meal basket. Clew-
iston Cub Scouts pack 667 want


to THANK those in our commu-
nity who participated in "Scout-'
ing for Food." You are helping
those in need and are providing
a positive reinforcement to our
scouts who are learning to help
others.

School Happenings


Eastside Elementary


Is your child striving to get a
enHl S "D"? Is he/she upset if they come
home with an "A"? Perhaps this is
true if your child attends Eastside
Elementary. This year
our school has adopt-
ed a plan where our
&' ie � parents might
S still be a little j
confused but
S"our students
S " i are acting on
Shelby Level D and
Weeks right on track.
_ The program explains behav-
. |ior at different levels where Level
D is the best and Level A is a level
we try to avoid.
Level D (Democracy) is the
highest level a child can achieve.
This is when a student does some-
thing because he/she knows that
it is right and not because they are
told to do so.
Christina Level C (Cooperation) is also
Sandoval an acceptable level, but the stu-
ers who are also dents are following guidelines be-
and dependable. cause they are told to do so.
o these athletes! Level B (Bullying or Bossing)
is an unacceptable level.
Level A (Anarchy) is when a
child is not following the guide-
lines and his or her behavior is
IT , unacceptable.
Teachers provide students
with alternatives and methods to


deal with their own inappropriate
behavior and reactions to others
with unacceptable behavior. Stu-
dents realize that the choices they
make, whether they are good or
bad, are their own choices and
fully understand the consequenc-
es to their own choices. The pro-
gram incorporates components
of guidance and self-reflection in
order to help students realize al-
ternatives to bad choices.
So the next time your child
*comes home with a "D", it might
just be a good thing!
We would like to make a cor-
rection on our first nine weeks
Honor Roll List to add:
* Mrs. Ramos-Kindergarten
All E's: Alexa Navarro, Jaden
Robinson, Jennah Hernandez,
and Rebekah Rudd. Great job!
Just a Reminder: Santa's Work-
shop will be in the Media Center
Dec. 10-14.

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

Shake the grocery store blues


One of the most miserable
places on earth is the grocery store
at 6 o'clock every night. Here you
will see women standing in line
with hungry, cranky kids buying
overpriced, ready-to-eat food for
their dinner. They might have a
gallon of milk too, or maybe even
some toilet paper, but one thing
is for sure: they're unprepared,
stressed out and all they want to
do is get out of that long line, get
home and get everyone fed.
It does not have to be that way
and there are very simple solu-
tions (baby steps!) to getting out
of this awful rut and getting a grip
on the food in your house. One
of the first things to do is make a
shopping list.
Yeah, you've heard it before
and you somehow you think you
don't need to do this: you think
you know what you need. But
let me ask you this? How many
trips do you make each week to
the store? The answer should be
ONE. Even an extra trip to pick up
a gallon of milk is too much--it's
not going to go bad, so why not
stock up? Now don't go mailing
me explaining your space limita-
tions. Obviously, if that is truly the
case (and you've eliminated the
"science project" leftovers taking
up valuable space in the fridge)
you have my blessing. But for
the rest of us, once is absolutely
enough. I cannot emphasize how
important this is. Staying out of
the store will help us keep our fi-'
nances in order and give us more
time to do the things we want to
do.
' The way to do this is to have a
plan. It doesn't need to be elabo-
rate, just a simple grocery list that
coincides with what your family
eats (a menu for the week), what
you're running out of and how
much you need of everything. If
you're opening a can of tuna for
lunch, put tuna on the .grocery

Cilley


list--even if you have more in the
pantry! And even if you don't pick
it up this grocery trip, you have at
least made the connection that
(you'll need it in the future, it's
written down and it will be re-
membered when it is finally time
for it to be bought. This is how
you keep your pantry perpetually
stocked.
At this point I have to address
the warehouse store. This is NOT
a good place for a lot of us to
spend their time or their money.
I have yet to meet a woman who
can go into one of these places
with a list and not come out with
at least five 'other purchases be-
cause they were "good deals".
And don't we all just love a deal?
I have more than once called up
a friend to gloat over the good
deal I snagged. There are always
exceptions to the rule, but for the
most part, it's a slippery slope and
if you don't want to fall down,
you must avoid places like those
like the plague;
Here are some signs you've
got a problem with warehouse
stores:
*your purchases are stuffed
under beds in your home because
you don't have the space.
*you're lying to your husband
about what you spent. .
*you're hiding your purchas-.
es.
*you're nervous when it's time
to check out hoping you have the
money to buy all the stuff.


*you feel guilty about it.
Of course, this can all apply to
any store. Warehouse stores are
the places that I happen to know
from personal experience that
you can completely whack out
your family's household budget
for months because of impulse
purchases. And that's what the
whole economy of a warehouse
store is based on. They're count-
ing on you to overspend and im-
pulse buy and to thank you, they
charge you a membership fee
once a year for that privilege!
So get your menus together.
If you need help, check out my
website, www.savingdinner.
corn Keep a running list (I have
a cheap notepad with a magnet
on my fridge and a pen in the
knife drawer) and write it down
as soon as you use it, and above
all else spend a little extra time
on the list before you leave the
house. The time spent on the list
will pay off big time, because you
won't be running out the door
to grab a can of tomatoes for a
recipe because your perpetual
grocery list has you covered. As
this becomes a habit, you will be
flying in the grocery department
of your life, too! It will become
easier, you'll spend less time and
you'll be confident that you have
what you need when you need it.

ner on your table check out

Plan to prevent holiday depression


It's the holiday season and
everywhere people are *happy
and excited...except you. Instead,
you're feeling stressed and de-
pressed. It's called the "holiday
blues" and it's a fairly common
condition, though one often hid-
den behind false holiday smiles.
One reason the holiday sea-
son can seem depressing is that
- it conesa at a time when we may
be mentally summing up the year,
especially its troubles and short-
comings. Year-end memories
commonly focus on problems of
the past year -- illnesses, loss of
loved ones, work or relationship
problems, or things falling short
* of our expectations -- rather than
the positive happenings of the
year.
The holidays are also a busy
time. Added to the normal stresses
of daily living are the anxieties of
gift buying, holiday parties, family
issues, social obligations and oth-
er stress-inducers of this season.
Holiday media images can also
leave us with impossibly perfect
holiday expectations. Advertis-
ing, TV shows, and magazine sto-
ries are present wonderful family
holidays that never happen i real

Stress, Punishments or Re-
wards," the localized version
has been experimented with at
the school for a few years now,
but this year all teachers have
adopted the program's style.
The basic premise of the pro-
gram is educating children on
positive decisions. An example
of that might be a child choos-
ing to pick up a piece of paper,
rather than being instructed to
pick up the paper.
Although the results should
definitely help the school's be-
havioral issues, teachers are
finding that parents are noticing
the results, too.
Mrs. Swaggerty, a first-grade
teacher, was involved in the ex-


life, but still leave us feeling that
we're falling short of how things
should be. .All these complica-
tions of the season can certainly
leave us feeling blue, but there
are stepsto 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 con-
scious 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 effective way to
fight depression. Studies also fine


rio (aka LuLu), age 20, both of
Clewiston, were arrested and
charged with murder in the per-
petration or attempt of robbery
(one count for each), robbery
with a deadly weapon (two
counts each) and aggravated
battery (one count each). All
are being held without bond
in the Hendry County Jail. The
four' allegedly lured Mr. Cruz
and his friend, Jose Lopez Fran-
cisco, 29, to an isolated spot at
the "rock pits" off E Road where
they were beaten and robbed.
Mr. Cruz was found dead in the
nearby woods. Mr. Francisco
was able to call for help and
was transported for medical
treatment.

the program three years ago.
Today, she believes wholeheart-
edly in the program.
Her students learn that there
are four basic levels their be-
havior will earn them: an A, B,
C and D. The A is the worst of
the four, and defines Anarchy.
It is followed by B for Bullying
and Bossing and C for Coopera-
tion. The letter D is the highest
that a student can achieve and
stands for Democracy -- mean-
ing that a child will not need
to be instructed to do the right
thing at all times:
The lesson is delivered main-
ly through role-playing exer-
cises and children learn how to
combat bullying and indecisive-
ness.

Ms. Swaggerty's children learn


even moderate exercise can re-
duce stress and mild depression.
You also want to stay connected.
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 holi-
day feelings with friends can also
help. Their support and comfort
can make a real difference. And
while the holiday blues are usual-
ly only temporary and fairly mild,
talk to counseling professional if
your depression feels deeper and
more than just a symptom of the
season.

peared to have been stabbed in
the chest and was pronounced
dead at the scene by EMS.
Geronimo Diaz has been
arrested and charged with ho-

Authorities believe Diaz had
also chased the victim's cousin,
Wilfredo Mendez, with a knife,
but he was able to elude Diaz.
However, Alfredo lost his foot-

was transported to Lee Me-

throat.

dren naturally learn better."
On Tuesday, a teacher
showed the results of an exer-
cise her student had completed.
The student compared a D level
to joy and happiness and an A
level to being sad and unhap-
py. Teachers say that following
the rules carries a very positive
connotation of fun for Eastside
kids.
Still, it was a bit strange to
explain the idea to some.
"Parents wanted to know
why their children were excited
when they came home with a
D," Ms. Duke said.

Comedy

and pink tutu.
The owners of the Inn them-
selves, who are' regular show-
goers, weren't spared and the
final act had most in the crowd
in stitches following the removal
of a particular owner's wife's un-
dergarment.
"We've been bringing in co-
medians from all over the coun-
try," said Floyd Salkey, who along
with Yasir Khan purchased the
Clewiston Inn iecerth. "We were
just eagerto do son eating. We're
from Ft. Lauderdale and that's'
something that's very popular in
Ft. Lauderdale."
Last Friday was the third week
for the comedy shows, and the
owners are, hoping to continue
booking more acts every 'Friday.
While most comedy acts are
geared toward adults, the magic
show encouraged parents to
bring their children and enjoy an
evening dinner just before the
show.
Residents have responded

store-bought pumpkin pie, and
it seemed it was one of the few
expenses the group had made for
Christmas Day.
When they entered the home
to present the gifts, Ms. Petersen
remembers how dearly and ear-
nestly all of them were offered
a piece of the pie, and how the
family didn't look at the presents
until they had all eaten.
Ms. Petersen's eyes well up
when she remembers the story.
If you are interested in donat-
ing money or toys for this year's
toy distribution, call the police de-


overwhelmingly, Mr. Salkey said.
"They're excited about some-
thing like this coming to town for
the first time," he said.
But the comedy shows aren't
the only activities that the Inn is
hosting.
. On Wednesdays, local stars
are invited to participate in an
open mic contest, with winners
receiving a $100 prize at the end
of each night. Locals try their
hand at singing, songwriting,
and playing their favorite instru-,
ments while Derrick Hughes and
his band, The Chase look on and
rate them.
A final grand prize winner will
receive $500.
"We find that there's a lot of
talent in town," said Mr. Salkey.
The hopefuls perform in the
courtyard garden outdoors. Tiki
torches and the moderately cool-
er weather lend to. the ambience,
according to Mr. Salkey.


The events are one way of the
Inn reaching out to the commu-
nity, according to him.
"For one reason or another,
we noticed a lot of the commrnu-
nity stopped coming to the Inn,"
said Mr. Salkey. "Maybe it was
mismanagement, but a large
number stopped attending the
Inn."
Coupled with recent renova-
tions made to the inside of the
Inn, with a comprehensive re-
modeling" taking shape in the
rooms and throughout the fa-
cilities, the group hopes that resi-
dents will start visiting again.
Even if it's only to prance
around in goofy Roman hats

How is your Christmas IQ?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
For years I have shared this
Christmas I.Q. test with friends
and church members as a fun
way to focus on what we really
know about the Christmas event.
We have our nativity sets, our
Christmas cards and our Christ-
mas carols, which is great. The
problem is that legend has been
busy with them over the years.
This I.Q. test helps bring some of
these legends to light. See how
well you do!
1. As long as Christmas has
been celebrated, it has been on
December 25th. (T or F)
2. Joseph was from: (A) Beth-
lehem, (B) Jerusalem, (C) Naza-
reth, (D) Egypt, (E) Chicago, (F)
None of the above.
3. How did Joseph and Mary
travel to Bethlehem? (A) Joseph
walked, Mary rode a donkey. (B)
Mary walked, Joseph rode a don-
key. (C) They both walked. (D)
They both rode. (E) They hitch-
hiked. (F) They flew. (G) Who
Knows?
4. What did the innkeeper tell
Mary and Joseph? (A) "Come
backafter the Christmas rush
and I should have some vacan-
cies." (B) "I have a stable you


can use." (C) "There is no room
at the inn." (D) Both B and C (E)
None of the above.

for domestic
animals (B) John
Wooden hay Hicks
storage bin (C)
Feeding Trough. (D) Barn.

birth? (A). Cows, sheep, goats.
(B). Cows, donkeys, sheep (C)
Lowing cattle (D) Misc. barnyard
animals (E) Lions, tigers, and
bears (F). None of the above.
8. Who saw the "Star in the
East"? (A) Shepherds (B) Mary
and Joseph (C) Three Kings (D)
Both A and C (E) None of the
above.

ANSWERS: (1) False. Not until
the fourth century did it settle on
the 25th. (2) A. See Luke 2:3,4.
(3) H. The Bible doesn't say, but
A would be a good answer if Jo-
seph were a smart man! (4) E.
No word about the innkeeper.
See Luke 2:7. (5) E. No word
about it. He was placed in a man-
ger which might lead us to think
"stable." See Luke 2:7. (6) C. (7)
F The Bible doesn't specify. (8)
E. The wise men did. They were
not kings. See Matthew 2:2 (9) F.
See Luke 2:12 (10) D. Early tra-
dition had 12, then 3 - one wise
man for each gift, but nobody re-
ally knows for sure. See Matthew
2:1. (11) C. Matthew 2:11 (12) G.
Mark begins with John the Bap-
tist; John with "the Word".
Share the story. Share the love.
Share the Savior!


The incomparable Christ!


By Jackie Miller,
minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
He came from the bosom
of the Father to the bosom of
a woman. He put on humanity
that we might put on divinity.
He became Son of Man that we
might become Sons of God.
He was born in a supernatu-
ral way, lived in poverty, reared
in obscurity. Only once crossed
the boundary of the land, in
childhood. He had not wealth
nor influence and no college
education, yet the profound-
est wisdom of men has never
equaled His last discourse
in John 13 to 17 and the Ser-
mon on the Mount. Never man
spake like this man!
His relatives were incon-
spicuous and non-influential.
In infancy He startled a king; in
boyhood He puzzled the doc-
tors; even at 12 years of age
He was far in advance of the
theologians, for He was taught
of God; in manhood He ruled
the elements, so that He could
defy the laws of gravitation
by walking on the water, and
quiet the raging sea. He healed
the multitudes without medi-


cine, and made no charge for
His services.
He never wrote a book, yet
libraries could not hold the
books that have been written
about Him. He never wrote
a song, yet He has furnished
the theme of more songs that
all song writers combined. He
never founded a college, yet
all the schools together cannot
boast of so many students as
He has.
He never marshaled an
army, drafted a soldier, nor
fired a gun, yet no leader made
more volunteers, who have
under His orders made rebels
stack arms or surrender with-
out a shot being fired.
Great men have come and
gone, yet He lives on! Herod
could not kill Him, Satan could
not seduce Him, death could
not hold Him, and even de-
mons obeyed Him. He fed the
hungry multitudes with a little
boy's lunch, broke up funer-
als, and gave back life to those
who were. dead.
He laid aside His purple
robe for a peasant's gown. He
was rich, yet for our sakes He
became poor. How poor? Ask


Mary. Ask the Wise Men. He
slept in another's manger; He
cruised the lake in another's
boat. He rode on a borrowed
beast. He was buried in a rich
man's tomb.
He conquered death, rose
after three days as He said He
would, ascended into Heaven,
is now at the right hand of the
throne of God, with all authori-
ty in Heaven and Earth, and will
one day come in the clouds of
Heaven with power and great
glory for His own born-again,
blood-bought ones to be for-
ever with Him according to
promises, after which, He will
judge the world in righteous-
ness, when every knee shall
bow to Him and every tongue
shall confess Him as Lord---His
friends gladly, but His enemies
reluctantly, seeking for a place
to hide from His face (Rev.
6:15).
The ever Perfect One - He
is the Chief among ten thou-
sands, the only One who can
satisfy the soul and give ever-
lasting LIFE to those who have
it not. HE IS -ALTOGETHER
LOVELY, and HE is my very
own SAVIOR!


Christmas is coming, The Lord is coming: What it can mean?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
An acquaintance told me about
being inspired by an evangelistic
person. The minister could keep
his attention and spoke of things
that struck where it mattered.
One day, my acquaintance decid-
ed to look up the evangelist and
share a personal concern with
him. He was disappointed; tell-
ing me that "at a distance, he was
great, but when it came to things
that were really bothering me, he
just wasn't there." Unlike Paul,
being "all things to all people"
is a rare gift indeed. I suggested
he find someone with whom he
could get "down and dirty" and
gave him a couple of suggested


names. It is commonplace for all
of us to have an image of some-
one as we begin to know them,
a mental picture :.. .
of what they are
like.
Sometimes ...
is confirmed as -
we get to know
that person bet-
ter; other times,
our images are -
shattered and Samuel S..
we find out they Thomas
might not be at
all like we thought they were.
With Christmas upon us, there is
that image of a baby in a manger.
We all imagine the innocence and
wonder, the miracle of birth, the
excitement in the household that
found itself in a stable behind an


inn, the visitors, the setting. Jesus
was born into our world; that's
the Christmas story. We don't
hear much about Him for about
twelve years afterward; those
years when He would have been
growing up and when younger
brothers and sisters would have
joined the family. It is during
those years, when the baby Jesus
became more truly "incarnate"
that we can only imagine what
took place.
What does it mean; this
Christmas event when the Lord
came into the world and became
fully human? I can picture a small
child in a carpenter's shop; some
of my earliest memories were
when I was in my father's shop
in our basement. I can imagine
Him getting sawdust in His hair,


or an occasional splinter in His
finger.
I can picture the adjustment
in the family when younger
brothers and sisters shared with
Jesus' earthly family: I can re-
member the coming of my own
brothers being born into our
household. These are things that
we've all shared in one way or
another; Jesus shared them too.
They are a part of what makes
us truly human; fully a part of an
earthly family, fully binding us in
deep relationships that teach us
about a parent's love or bond-
ing among brothers and sisters.
It will provide us with strength to
face the days when the protec-
tion and shelter of the first home
gives way to the maturity and
obligations of adulthood; our


"discipleship" will become an
"apostleship" and we will have
acquired what it takes to take our
place in God's scheme of things
for us.
John wrote about the Lord's
earliest moments as he began his
gospel account: "The Word be-
came flesh and made His dwell-
ing among us. We have seen His
glory, the glory of the One and
only who came. from the Father
full of grace and truth (John
1:14)." When the Lord made His
dwelling among is it would be
about all of our life to be shared;
the sawdust, the splinters, the
brothers and sisters, the love of
parents and the earthly part of His
preparation for His ministry here.
We celebrate Christmas in part
because we remember His com-


ing into this world to immerse
Himself fully into it. God chose to
have no false images about what
people are like, and what life on
earth is all about. Jesus' willing-
ness to "get down and dirty"
makes the occasion all the more
special. It is about God reaching
beyond our images or being off
at a distance; it is about our find-
ing Him nearby when the going
gets rough and His being able to
understand what we might never
dare to share with others.
Christmas is about Jesus: fully
human, so that we might see
Him in all of His glory. He can
say "I've been there. I know what
it is like." That's an act of love;
but that's what babies are about
anyway. That's what Christmas is
about too!

JUNO BEACH -- 'Tis the sea-
son of holiday lights and deco-
rations. It's also the season of
spending. Florida Power & Light
Co. says for financial and energy
savings, energy efficient lights are
an illuminating choice.

Greener lights
Energy Efficient LEDs, or Light
Emitting Diode lights, are gaining
popularity this season. In fact,
this year the Times Square New
Year's Eve Ball will be redesigned
and completely illuminated by
LEDs. In its December issue, Con-
sumer Reports compares regular
mini and standard-sized holiday
lights to LED light strands. When
it comes to energy efficiency, the
LED lights were the clear winner.
They use up to 98 percent less
energy than traditional lights, sav-
ing approximately $4 for every 10
strands you hang. And while they
may cost more to purchase, LEDs
pay back the cost difference in 3
seasons. LEDs also have a much
longer life than conventional light
bulbs, lasting up to,100,000 hours
or more indoors, or about 50,000
hours when used outside.
Consumer Reports also
checked the burning tempera-
ture of the bulbs. Traditional
incandescent lights were much
hotter. Because the LEDs run
much cooler, they can use plastic
on the bulbs instead of glass. So
they're more durable and pose a
lower fire risk.
LED holiday lights are avail-
able at many retailers, and at
FPL's online store by visiting
www.fpl.com/online.

toppers beware of gift card fraud


LAHASSEE -- Attorney
l Bill McCollum has is-
consumer advisory en-
ing Floridians to be savvy
;rs when purchasing
ng gift cards this holiday
� The Attorney General
ed consumers that gift
scams unfortunately can
but basic consumer
less and fraud prevention
iues could spare holiday
;rs considerable trouble.
y General McCollum also
d tips for using gift cards
would enable gift card re-
s to protect themselves
aud.
th the holiday season
swing, the potential for
s very real and our citi-
ould take care to protect
elves," said Attorney Gen-
cCollum.' "We want to
sure Floridians have any
le information to prevent
d-related and other types
dulent activity that may
damper on this time of

important recommenda-
is holiday season is to
ose attention to the fine
n gift cards. A new law
this year by the Florida
ture mandates that gift
issued in Florida will not
or have any fees that
reduce the value of the
d, although gift cards is-


sued before June 28, 2007 can
still have expiration dates, fees
and other terms that could re-
duce their value. The Florida
Retail Federation estimates that
Florida consumers will spend
one out of every five dollars on
gift cards this Christmas season.
Nationwide, consumers are pro-
jected to spend approximately
$25 billion on gift cards during
the 2007 holiday season.
"Gift cards will be a popu-
lar gift item this Christmas. We
urge consumers to use them
wisely and treat them the same
as cash," said Rick McAllister,
President of the Florida Retail
Federation.
The Attorney General's Office
also released the following tips
for buying and using gift cards:
* Buy gift cards from repu-
table sources. Avoid buying gift
cards from online auction
sites as these cards may be sto-
len or counterfeit or may have
been obtained fraudulently.
* Always read the fine print
before purchasing gift cards.
* Inspect the card before
buying. Verify that none of the
protective stickers have been
removed. Ensure that the codes
on the back of the card have
not been scratched off to reveal
a PIN number. Report altered
cards to the store selling the
cards.
* Give the recipient the


original receipt to verify the
card's purchase value in case
the card is lost or stolen.
* Ask about purchase excep-
tions, including any terms of use
that may vary regarding a store's
website versus the physical store
location.
* Treat gift cards like cash. If
a card is lost or stolen, report it
to the issuer immediately. Most
issuers have toll-free numbers to.
report lost or stolen cards.
Complaints about gift cards'
should first be reported to the
retailer or financial institution
that issued the card. If the prob-
lem can't be resolved at that lev-,
el, consumers may want to file a-
complaint with the appropriate
authorities. For cards issued by<
retailers, consumers may con-;
tact the Federal Trade Commis-
sion at http://www.ftc.gov or'
call toll-free: 1-877-FTC-HELP.
For cards issued by national
banks, consumers may contact
the Comptroller of the Currency
(OCC) Customer Assistance
Group by calling 1-800-613-6743
or sending an e-mail to: custom-
er.assistance@occ.treas.gov
The OCC charters, regulates
and supervises national banks
some of which issue gift cards
Complaints may also be report-
ed to the Attorney General's Of-
fice through the fraud hotline

ent the 11th Annual "Brighten


My World," project, an exhibi-
tion featuring talents of local
Candlelighter artists whose lives
-have been touched by cancer or

work offers a unique insight into
the special issues children face
allowing us to view them from
the child's prospective a pain-'
ful memory but more often, the
brighter side of dealing with an
illness like cancer.
Brighten My World art will be
displayed throughout the holiday


season, part of our national effort
to raise greater awareness of the
special needs of young cancer
patients, children with blood dis-
orders and also, their siblings.

charity as the children and fami-
lies we have in the Southwest
Florida area," said Klair Snell-

USDA assigns counties as natural disaster areas


GAINESVILLE -- The U.S. De-
partment of Agriculture designat-
ed 58 Florida counties as primary
natural disaster areas because of
losses caused by drought that oc-
curred on Jan. 1, 20.07, and con-
tinuing, announced Kevin L. Kel-
ley, State Executive Director for the
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA).
Hendry, .Glades and Collier
Counties are. among those desig-
nated as well including surround-
ing counties and others through-
out the drought ravaged state.


Farm operators in Broward,
Charlotte, Highlands, Lee, Mimi-
Dade, Monroe, Okeechobee,
Palm Beach and Pinellas counties
in Florida also qualify for natural
disaster benefits because their
counties are contiguous.
All counties listed above were
designated natural disaster ar-
eas on Nov. 26, 2007, making all
qualified farm operators in the
designated areas eligible for low
interest emergency (EM) loans
from USDA's Farm Service Agency


(FSA), provided eligibility require-
ments are met. Farmers in eligible
counties have eight months from
the date of the declaration to ap-
ply for loans to help cover part of
their actual losses. FSA will con-
sider each loan application on its
own merits, taking into account
the extent of losses, security avail-
able and repayment ability. FSA
has a variety of programs, in ad-
dition to the EM loan program, to
help eligible farmers recover from
adversity.

-:1b T'''F


Hendry County, in cooperation with the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT), will
conduct a public hearing for the proposed Helms Roai F.xten-.ion project The hearing will
provide interested persons the opportuniLy to express their views concerning the location,

begin at 5-00 p.m. The formal public hearing for the proposed Helms Road Extension project
is on the agenda and will consist of a presentation by the County on the project and its
associated impacts followed by a public comment period.
