War hero returns from fight


After losing his leg,
soldier finds
comfort at home
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- From a dis-
tance as he traveled east on
Hwy. 27 outside of Clewiston,
Joel Morera spotted the row of
faraway people waiting for him
on the side of the road leading
into town.
They waved small American


flags and held up posters sup-
porting the return of one of their
own: a soldier who spent three
campaigns overseas and lost his
leg, earning him a Purple Heart.
As a show of support, com-
munity members, and many at
Clewiston City Hall, decided to
show the soldier how much they
appreciated his sacrifice.
The soldier found himself in
the company of many familiar
faces.
Joel was a student in a class
led by Kristen Petersen, Clewis-
ton's assistant police chief.


"He was a quiet, young man,
and it wasn't a surprise when he
enlisted," Ms. Petersen remem-
bered.
Although opinions vary great-
ly regarding the war, no one on
Monday mentioned even a single
politicized word about it.
"It matters not if we support
the cause," said Ms. Petersen.
"What matters is that we sup-
port our guys."
His wife, Ana, 'seemed hap-
pily overwhelmed at the sight of

A friendly surprise
Joel Morera wasn't expecting to find dozens of people waiting for him when he came to Clewiston. The Clewiston
High School graduated recently received a Purple Heart for his service in Iraq. He lost a leg, but on Monday seemed
happy to see his family and friends welcoming him back.

Basketball

on a

hot streak

Middle school
team is currently
undefeated
By Naji Tobias
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Beware,
Clewiston Middle School op-
ponents.
The current assembly of the
Clewiston Middle School Tigers
boys' basketball team is on a
hot streak,.
SThe team is. currently 7-0
and hopefully gunning for an
undefeated season.
As a feeder program for the
Clewiston High School Tigers
boys' basketball team, it seems
like the varsity team, under
head coach Willie Lee, will
be in great hands for years to
come.
Stephen Boyd, the third year
-head coach, led his Tigers to
a respectable 7-4 record last
season. Last year proved to be
a building experience for the
Tigers.
Now they just appear un-
stoppable.
Generally, what Coach Boyd
has instilled in his players is the
ability to play as a team. It has
shown throughout the season
thus far.
The Tigers' dominant play
comes from their improved
man-to-man defense, dribbling
and shot selection, among oth-
er fundamental concepts.
The evidence was displayed
during a recent 39-15 blowout
victory over the Moore Haven
Terriers, When the Tigers team

Braving the cold
Police were notified on Monday that a man pitched a tent
on the side of the road on U.S. 27 in Clewiston, near the
railroad tracks. He said he spent the previous days there,
and had been cold when temperatures dipped earlier this
week. With Christmas a few days away, he was uncertain
about whether he was going to stay with family or stay
where he was.

Dike repair work on lake continues


Progress on repairs
facilitated by dry
weather conditions
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Independent Newspapers
PORT MAYACA -- Rehabilita-
tion work on the Herbert Hoover
Dike is progressing at a rapid
pace, according to the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers.
The drought conditions affect-


ing the lake level requiring water
shortage restrictions and a bump
to the local economy had a silver
lining, the corps reported, with
the schedule of repair advancing
quicker than had been antici-
pated.
Susan Jackson, spokeswoman
for the Army Corps of Engineers,
explained that the exposed lake
bottom facilitated work.
"Average lake levels require
some inspections to be con-
ducted by specially trained scuba


divers, remote operated vehicles
with underwater cameras, or by
closing off and dewatering the
site," she explained. "Instead,
Corps engineers were able to
navigate boats through the cul-
vert structures, resulting in ma-
jor reductions in time, effort and
costs."
Work at the site has been
consistently active and brought
more into the public focus after
an independent report found the
earthen dike to be riddled with

Representatives of Hendry Regional Medical Center and Hendry Regional Foundation met

piping literally holes that form
in the levee and could cause seep-
age and breaches and urged the
management agencies to act in
securing the aging dike.
The first of the cutoff wall con-
tracts has started, according to
Ms. Jackson.
The cutoff wall will dig verti-
cally into the dike, reaching into
the limestone layer in the earth to
reduce the presence of piping.
The Army Corps hopes that its
work will strengthen the levee for
years to come and relieve worry
that a heightened lake level could
present major problems in the
communities directly next to the
lake.
Another concern that is being
carefully considered is the con-
tentious issue of property acquisi-
tion to accommodate the repairs.
Residents in Pahokee had previ-
ously expressed concern and out-
right anger at the possibility that
up to several hundred feet of their
property would be acquired for
this purpose.
In between continuing their
work at the Port Mayaca site, a
stretch of land representing the
first reach of work around the
143-mile lake, engineers have
gone back to re-think their plans
and, according to Ms. Jackson,
have come upon some ideas that
may spare some areas from land
acquisition.
While she is careful to say that
the plans won't completely elimi-
nate the possibility, wherever pos-
sible they will be used to lessen
the chance that private land will
be required.

First indictment of grand jury announced


Ten members of SUR-
13 gang arrested in
Palm Beach County

WEST PALM BEACH -- Palm
Beach County Sheriff Ric Brad-
shaw, Attorney General Bill
McCollum and the Florida De-
partment of Law Enforcement
(FDLE) announced recently the
first arrests and indictments of
the 18th Statewide Grand Jury
convened to study the growth
of gangs and gang violence in
the State of Florida. Authorities
arrested 10 South Florida mem-
bers of SUR-13, a dangerous
gang that operates statewide.
Each member will be charged
with criminal racketeering and
conspiracy to commit racketeer-
ing and could each spend up to
60 years in, pri:..n if convicted.
The. sweep is one of the
year's largest coordinated efforts
to target gangs as an organized
criminal enterprise and included
cooperation from the Florida
Highway Patrol, U. S. Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) and the State Attorney's
Office for the 15th Judicial Cir-
cuit.
The local and state law en-
forcement investigation identi-
fied the alleged gang members
as individuals connected to
other criminal activity including
the attempted murder of rival
gang members during a drive-
by shooting that severely injured
an innocent bystander. Other
crimes attributed to the gang in-
clude a series of armed robber-
ies, retaliatory arson, aggravated
battery and multiple theft and
drug-related charges. The men
were arrested yesterday during a
tactical operation coordinated by
the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office (PBSO) with members of
the Palm Beach County Multi-
Agency Violent Crimes Task
Force. During the arrest sweeps,
a search warrant revealed a fully
loaded Tech 9 assault weapon at
one individual's homes.
"This is a perfect example
of the type of team effort I sup-
port and encourage," said Palm
Beach County Sheriff Ric Brad-


shaw. "Our Gang Strategy here at
PBSO calls for partnerships with
Federal, State and local agen-
cies. By using the state statues
involving RICO, we are attacking
their organized criminal activity
by targeting their organizations
from the top to the bottom."
Those arrested include Er-
nesto Campos, 25; Isaias Ja-
cobo, 24; Victor Castillo, 24;
Enrique Medran, 20; Dennis Me-
drano, 19; Alexis Medrano, 17;
Kevin Medrano, 19; Efran Ortiz,
25, Carlos Martinez, 21; and Ro-
berto Trejo, 18. Ernesto Cam-
pos, the group's leader, is in the
country illegally. All. defendants
are currently being held at the
Palm Beach County Jail on $1
million dollar bond as ordered
by Chief Judge Kathleen Kroll,
Presiding Judge of the 18th
Statewide Grand Jury. All will be
charged with criminal racketeer-
ing and conspiracy to commit
racketeering, both first-degree
felonies. Attorney General Bill
McCollum's Office of Statewide
Prosecution will prosecute the
cases in th'e 15 Judicial Circuit
using the racketeering charges
to attack the gang as an orga-
nized criminal operation.
"The only way we are going
to stop the growth of gangs and
reduce the gang violence threat-
ening our state is to work coop-
eratively with local, state and
federal authorities to take these
criminals off the streets and
bring them to justice," said At-
torney General McCollum. "This
operation has clearly proved
that when we work together,
we can achieve better results. I
am pleased with the work done
by the Statewide Grand Jury we
impaneled and I look forward to
even more progress."
"Gang activity will not be
tolerated by Florida law en-
forcement,' said FDLE Commis-
sioner Gerald Bailey. We will
continue to work collaboratively
to prevent these criminal orga-
nizations from operating and
stop them from bringing violent
crime to our communities."
To address the gang issue
on a statewide level, the Attor-
ney General's Office launched
the Statewide Grand Jury in


August to investigate criminal
gang activity including crimes
involving narcotics or other dan-
gerous drugs and robbery, as
well as violatioans of the Florida
Racketeer Influenced and Cor-
ruption Organization (RICO)
Act. The jurors are also study-
ing various criminal issues and
plan to make recommendations
on laws needed to deter gang
activities and to punish those in-
volved in these pursuits. An in-
terim report, which will include
legislative recommendations for
combating the spread of gangs
and gang violence, is expected
to be released in early January.
In addition to impaneling the
grand jury, the Attorney Gener-
al's Office has also convened an
Executive Group to examine the
growing threat criminal gangs
pose and develop a coordinated.
aiti- ang strategy. 'I he sate'.\ ide
anrig reduction strategy\ \\ill lake
a two-pronged approach, a law
enforcement effort and an edu-
cational effort focused on pre-
vention and intervention. The
strategy will address issues con-
cerning gang membership iden-
tification, gang recruitment, risk
factors for youth, prevention,
crime suppression and post
conviction or adjudication diver-
sion. The long-range plan will
include gang suppression and
deterrence techniques; prosecu-
tion and criminal justice system
enhancements; prevention and
intervention; data and intelli-
gence sharing; education and
training; and rehabilitation and
reentry efforts for former gang
members. More information can

Holiday decorations


can be safe and fun


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is urging people to be care-
ful with Christmas trees, lights,
Menorahs and other decorations
this holiday season. He is espe-
cially concerned about the po-
tential for fire given the dry con-
ditions around the state.
Fires from trees and improper
use of candles result in about
150 deaths a year according. to
the Consumer Product Safety
Commission. In addition, hos-
pital emergency rooms treat at
least 8,500 Americans for falls,
cuts, shocks and burns due to
incidents involving faulty lights,
dried-out Christmas trees and
other holiday activities. Menorah
candles and decorative candles
can also be a fire hazard without
proper safety precautions.
"These are tragedies that do
not have to happen," Commis-
sioner Bronson said. "Following
some common sense safety mea-
sures can help ensure people do
have a safe and happy holiday."
Here are some safety tips to
consider during this holiday sea-
son.
When purchasing a live
tree, check for freshness. A tree
which needles are hard to pull
from branches and whose trunk
is sticky with resin is not a fresh
tree. When setting up a tree, keep
it away from fireplaces, portable
heaters and other heat sources.
Keep the stand filled with water.
When buying an artificial tree,
look for the label "Fire Resis-
tant." While it doesn't mean that
the tree cannot catch fire, it does
indicate that it is more resistant
to burning. If the artificial tree is
metallic, use extreme caution if
using electric lights or decora-
tions. Faulty wiring can cause
the whole tree to become elec-
trified.
When using menorahs and
candles, keep the menorah out
of children's reach. Always use
a menorah with a sturdy base
to reduce the possibility of tip-
ping over. If a child is lighting the
Hanukkah candles, keep his/her
hair back and out of the way.


Never allow children to reach
over one candle to light another,
since their clothing might catch
fire. Never use lighted candles
on a tree or near other ever-
greens and make sure that any
lighted candles being used for
decorative purposes are within
sight and out of reach of chil-
dren. Place decorative candles
on a heat resistant surface and
in a proper, stable holder. Keep
candles away from curtains and
don't place them under shelves.
.Do not move candles while they
are burning.-
When purchasing or setting
up lights, make sure they bear
the label of a recognized test-
ing facility such as UL of ETL.
Discard any lights with cracked
sockets, frayed or bare wires or
loose connections. Follow man-
ufacturer's instructions regard-
ing the number of light strings
that can be safely connected
together. Additional strings can
overload electrical circuits and
increase the chance of fire or
electrocution. If you use an ex-
tension cord, make sure that it
is rated for the intended use, and
ensure that any lights being used
outside are certified for outdoor
use. Use only non-combustible
or flame resistant decorations
on a tree. Always turn off holi-
day lights and blow out candles
when going to bed or leaving the
house. Keep all holiday plants
out of reach of small children,
as most are poisonous. Keep the
National Poison Control Help
Line number readily available:
(800) 222-1222.
Bronson says people also
need to be careful with post holi-
day yard trash burning, bonfires
and cleaning out fireplaces. The
ongoing drought has left the state
dry and it won't take much of a
spark to start a wildfire. People
can contact their local Division of
Forestry office to find out about
fire weather conditions. He says
the holidays should be a joyous
time and people should not get.

safety precautions.

Employers are the worst
My Speak Out is about the people of Clewiston. They let the
town go to pot. I'm driving down the street right now at the city of
Clewiston, there's a man sitting at the side of the road, half-naked
with a beer can in his hand just drinking away. Cops drive by and
don't do a thing about it. That's disgusting, I'm sorry. It is very dis-
gusting to look at this, the town of Clewiston. I hate to call myself
an American anymore. I can't get a job because I don't know how
to speak no Espanol. That's wrong. Our president ain't doing his
job. Our mayors aren't doing their jobs. I heard a thing on the news
a couple of weeks ago about a farmer who said he'd pay someone
$40 to pick squash. Well, buddy, I'll come and pick that squash.
Everybody has let everybody down. Employers are the worst.

Oppal Hancock
I just wanted to speak out about the senior citizens Christmas
party dinner at the John Boy Auditorium Sunday afternoon. It was
so wonderful and beautiful and the decorations were so pretty. And
the food was delicious and there was plenty of it. The fellowship
was uplifting and encouraging and I enjoyed meeting people at my
table. Let us all make this a good Christmas by good fellowship to
, all.

Seagrape (Coccoloba
uvifera) is a great tree for
most locations. This county
native can take on a variety
of shapes, depending upon
its location and pruning.
Seagrape has nice large,
almost circular, broad,
leathery, evergreen leaves
that have distinctive red
veins. The leaves frequently
turn completely red before
they fall in winter. The new
young foliage is a beautiful
bronze color which is set
off nicely against the dark
green, shiny leaves.
Seagrape is an interest-
ing, picturesque shade tree
or specimen planting for
many locations due to the
contorted, twisting trunk
and upright branching
habit. It can also be pruned
into a dense hedge, screen,
or windbreak. Because
of its size and coarse tex-
ture, seagrape as a clipped
hedge is more suited to
foundation plantings for
large buildings where it can
provide a tropical effect. It
is also used as a seaside
hedge in commercial and
home landscapes because
of its tolerance to salt, but
requires hand pruning,
since the large leaves do
not lend themselves well to
shearing. It often exhibits
extensive salt burn after a
storm, but the new growth
generally recovers nicely.
Without pruning it may
reach a height of 25 to 30

feet.
The small ivory flowers
are produced on foot-long
stems and are followed by
dense clusters of 3/4-inch
diameter green grapes on
female trees only, ripening
to a luscious deep purple in
late summer. Males do not
produce fruit. The grapes
are often used to make a
delicious jelly and are also
popular with birds and
squirrels.
This tree has a few pest
problems and no diseases
are of major concern. The
most damaging insect pest
is the seagrape borer. It
bores into the stem killing
or weakening the growth
tip. Adults lay eggs in De-
cember, March through
May and July through Sepl
tember. The best control
it to prune out below the
damaged tip and dispose
of the trimmed material.
Another insect pest is the
seagrape gall midge. Its
larval maggot causes many
disfiguring bumps over
leaves. Control of the midge
may be difficult because
they are already inside the
leaves before you notice
the damage. The. midge is
usually a spring and sum-
mer problem so you may
get some control by early
spring treatment with a sys-
temic insecticide. There is
a variegated cultivar avail-
able, which can add even


more color to a landscape.
The wood is generally very
strong and durable. Once
established the tree will
perform well with little
care, except for occasional
pruning of lower branches
to create ground clearance.

Leave a home for Florida cavity nesters


In south Florida we have
many cavities nesting birds
that have been having a
hard time finding enough
holes to nest in. Cavities or
holes in trees are nesting
sites for 25 bird species in
Florida. Some cavity-nest-
ers have very specific pref-
erences for their homes.
On the other hand, Caro-
lina wrens are quite adapt-
able and even have been
known to set up house-
keeping in pockets of ac-
.cessible clothing articles,
mailboxes, and old hornet
nests.
Some cavity-nesters
such as woodpeckers,
Carolina chickadees, and


brown-headed nuthatches
prefer to excavate their
own nest cavities in dead
or decaying wood. Oth-
ers select old woodpecker
holes or cavities formed by
lightning, disease, decay, or
insects.
Turkey vultures ,are the
largest cavity-nesters with
wing-spans of about 6 feet.
Theirnest site often is at or
near ground level in hollow
logs or broken trees. When
these are not available,
they will nest in caves or in
dense shrubbery.
The smallest hole-nester
in Florida is the brown-
headed nuthatch which
is only 3 1/2 inches long.


These birds often nest in
small cracks and crevices
that do not have notice-
able rounded openings like
woodpecker holes.
Nest sites for cavity-nest-
ers usually are in shorter
supply than food and water.
Dead trees (snags) often
are removed from yards,
forests and parks. When-
t\ er possible, snags should
be left for birds.
Due to the heat con-
straints during the nesting
season in Florida, avoid us-
ing metal or plastic for bird
nest boxes. Eggs can often
get overheated and die in
metal purple martin houses
or plastic wood duck nest


boxes. Wood offers both
good insulation and protec-
tion.
Properly built bird hous-
es can mimic natural cavi-
ties and help to increase'
the number of holes birds

Concern over state's obligation in citrus


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer
Services Commissioner
Charles Bronson said that
he is concerned about the
ramifications of a citrus
canker compensation law-
suit on the state's economy
and food supply.
On Dec. 10, a Palm
Beach County circuit judge
ruled the department is li-
able for paying homeown-
ers for citrus trees removed
as part of the citrus canker
eradication effort. The de-
partment had maintained
the trees were a public
nuisance because they
were exposed to the seri-
ous bacterial disease and
would likely become in-
fected based on scientific
research on the spread of
the disease. Trees that were
already diagnosed as infect-
ed are not included in the

po

ri-


lawsuit.
Mr. Bronson said the rul-
ing may have a chilling ef-
fect on state agencies trying
to do their job of stopping
pest or disease outbreaks
that would wreak havoc
on the state's economy and
food supply.
"What state agency
won't think twice about car-
rying out its constitutionally
mandated responsibility of
protecting the food supply,
public and economy when
faced with the possibility
of multi million dollar law-
suits?" Mr. Bronson said.
Mr. Bronson defended
the program saying state
and local officials some-
times have to take serious
actions for the greater good'
of all the citizens. He added
that many measures were
put in place to respond to
citizen concerns about the


eradication effort.
"We were responding
to the scientific research
that indicated trees within
1900 feet of an infected tree
would likely become in-
fected and the only way to
eradicate the disease was
to remove the infected and
exposed trees. Much test-
ing and research was done
before the 1900 foot cutting
zone was put into effect.".
Citrus canker causes se-
vere blemishing of the cit-
rus fruit, leaves and stems,
causes premature fruit and
leaf drop resulting in lower
yields and without an eradi-
cation program underway,
citrus growers would have
faced severe limitations on
exporting their product to
other states and countries.
In fact, that has become the
reality. Since the program
was abandoned in 2006


when the United States
Department of Agriculture
determined that the un-
precedented 2004 and 2005
hurricanes had spread the
disease beyond the abil-
ity to eradicate, regulators
have placed restrictions on
citrus exports to many ar-
eas.
Mr. Bronson expressed
disappointment that the
lead USDA scientist of the
canker study would not
agree to testify at the trial
in Palm Beach. Because he,
was not available to testify,;
the facts of the study which!
proved the 1900 foot cutting
zone was necessary were
not introduced at the trial,
a situation Mr. Bronson be-
lieves led to the ruling.
Bronson indicated that
too much is at stake and
the department will appeal
the ruling.


High market prices result in no partial payments


GAINESVILLE --The U.S.
Department of Agriculture
(USDA) announced recent-
ly that because market pric-
es are high, producers with
wheat, barley or oats base
acres who are enrolled in
USDA's Direct and Counter-
cyclical Payment Program
will not receive partial
2007-crop year counter-cy-
clical payments, said Kevin
L. Kelley, State Executive
Director for the USDA Farm
Service Agency (FSA).
Producers enrolled in
the program may receive
counter-cyclical payments
when effective prices for


eligible commodities are
less than their respective
target prices specified in
the 2002 Farm Bill. USDA
calculates these program
payments based on histori-
cal base acreage and pay-
ment yields, not current
production. USDA used the
November World Agricul-
tural Supply and Demand
Estimates Report, which
was released on Nov. 9, to
project these rates and de-
termined that the effective
prices exceed their respec-
tive target prices.
Any partial payments
for producers with upland


cotton, rice or peanut base
acres will be announced
on or after Feb. 1, 2008.
Any partial payments for
producers with corn, grain
sorghum or soybean base
acres will be announced on
or after March 1, 2008.
By statute, the 2007
crop counter-cyclical pay-
ments can be made in only
two installments, a change
from prior crop years when
counter-cyclical payments
were made in three install-
ments. For 2007, if partial
payments are made, the
first installment will equal
40 percent of the project-


ed total payment and will
be made after the first six
months of the beginning
of the marketing year. The
final payment is made after
the end of the marketing
year.
The 2002 Farm Bill re-
quires that any overpay-
ments to producers must
be repaid. If not repaid,
USDA may deduct over-:
payments from any future
USDA payments.

this program is available at

Getting ready for Christmas; realizing the gift of one life


Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Recently, the news told
about "Knut" a one-year old


white polar
bear. He was
brought to
world atten-
tion when he
was born last
year, not hav-
ing a mother
to attend and
nurture him.
There were
those around


Samuel S.
Thomas


who wanted to "let him die"
but they did not prevail. I re-
call looking at this infant cub,
helpless at the moment and
wondering why anyone would
want to destroy a beautiful in-
fant creature. The compassion
of the German people reached


out to him and to this animal
that is in ever-decreasing num-
bers in their arctic home where
polar bears have lived and sur-
vived for centuries. I looked at
the recent newscast with pic-
tures of a now-maturing cub
playing at the zoo and seem-
ing to be the picture of life and
health. I thought about how he
is becoming what God must
have intended for him, at least
in part, because he lived. It
also caused me to think about
another story about a wish to
take innocent life; a child born
who was as helpless as any
newborn and who had others
of his own kind wanting to take
his life. Fortunately, his parents
knew what was afoot and took
off to Egypt for three years. Now
we are getting ready to cel-
ebrate His life once more and
the coming of Jesus into the


world.
There is something about all
infants that means something
to us and that strikes a chord
within us all; no matter what
species and no matter how frag-
ile they come into this world.
As I think about getting ready
for Christmas, I am reminded
of the few days left before we
celebrate a fragile birth under
difficult circumstances, with
natural and human difficulties
surrounding it; all adding to the
miracle of what happened that
first Christmas eve. It is a story
of a mother with questions in
her heart who is "greatly trou-
bled (Luke 1:29)" and a father
who wonders what he should
do (Matthew 1:19), with both
of them being assured by God
that the life entrusted to them
was indeed very, very special.
Now, we have a few days


.to prepare for celebrating that
special life once more and to
remember just how difficult
and special that life has been to
us all. All of creation was wait-
ing for this coming and then
the life came. Today, we live on
the other side of the expecta-
tions of our ancestors and this
sacred moment of birth, and
we can begin to appreciate all
of the difficulties and blessings
that surrounded it. I remember
in my own home what each
birth meant; the difficulties
and the joys, the promise to be
fulfilled, the growing that took
place each day as the baby
turned over for the first time or
said the first word. As we get
ready for Christmas, we have
the answer to the question that
John asked Jesus, "Are you the
one who is to come or are we
to wait for another? (Matthew


The one baby who changed the world


11:2 3)," We have something
special to celebrate because
the faithful can affirm "Yes, this
is the one that God sent!" The
story moves me to be thankful
in a way that those who came
before Christmas could not un-
derstand or appreciate. Now
I still have some time left be-
fore the "big day" and can get
ready even if I know how the
story came out. In reflecting,
I can be ever so much more
thankful and joyful as I can get


ready to hear the story once
more. I can think how blessed
.we all are; the gift of life and
life abundant, life eternal and
all that came through that baby
in the manger under difficult
circumstances and at a diffi-
cult time.
The realization of Paul,
"Thanks be to God who gives
us, the victory (1 Corinthi-
ans 15:57)" is given to us all.
Thanks be to God for all this
life is, and can be.

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Over 2000 years ago a baby


was born who
the world. The
baby was, of
course...
If you were
thinking Jesus,
you are getting
ahead of the
story. The name
of the baby who
would change
the world was
Gaius Octavius.
He was born


would change
name of that





,i ''

John
Hicks


into a royal family; his great un-
cle was a -fellow named Julius
Caesar. Julius adopted Octavius
and made him his heir. When Ju-
lius died, Octavius was forced to
share power with two men: Mar-
cus Antonius and Marcus Lepi-
dus. Antonius married Octavius'


sister, but deserted her in favor
of the queen of Egypt, a woman
named Cleopatra. Octavius didn't
like the way Antonius treated his
sister, so he waged war on Anto-
nius and won. He consolidated
his power and in 27 B.C., the
Roman Senate granted Octavian
the name Augustus, meaning
"the exalted." Little Octavius had
grown up to become Caesar Au-
gustus, the first Roman Emperor
and the most powerful man the
world had ever known.
Augustus decided that the
people under his reign should be
counted so he could effectively
tax them. So, about 8 BC, he
called for a census. Taking a cen-
sus took time in those days, and
it wasn't until about four years
later that word 'of the census
reached the Judeans. The gov-
ernor decided that the best way
to accomplish this census was to
have each person return to their


own town to be registered.
As the Scriptures tell us, "Jo-
seph also went from the town of
Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to
the city of David called Bethle-
hem, because he was descended
from the house and family of
David. He went to be registered
with Mary, to whom he was en-
gaged and who was expecting a
child."
At the Bethlehem Inn, no one
worried about those who had
been turned away from the inn.
There had been many. The inn-
keeper had simply apologized
and said, "We are full and there
is no room in my inn this night."
But one young couple, the wife
heavy with child, he could not
turn away. He gave them a place
in the stable behind the inn.
So, out in the stable, with
most unaware of what was hap-
pening, a baby was about to be
born. This was God's plan. This


was God's love coming into the
world not with swords and
chariots, not with great books
and literature, not in fine build-
ings and imperial capitals, but
as a baby in a stable in the City
of David. Those who missed the
arrival of God's Son on that Holy
Night so long ago missed it not
because of evil acts or malice,
but simply because their atten-
tion was elsewhere. They just
weren't looking.
Even today, people are still
missing the coming of Christ
because their attention is else-
where. We are busy people with
busy lives and big plans. But God
has a bigger plan, and that plan is
revealed in a baby born in a man-
ger. And so Christmas comes year
after year as a reminder to us all.
And take note, God will even
use the decree of an emperor as
a tool in the carrying out of His
plan. God will even use you.

every time we are tempted to sin
(I Corinthians 10:13).
We KNOW that God is
close, and so concerned for us,

Health Department cautions against CO poisoning


TALLAHASSEE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
urges Floridians to take precau-
tions to prevent carbon monox-
ide (CO) poisoning during the
cold winter months. As tem-
peratures drop, the potential
for CO poisonings and deaths
rise. "Carbon monoxide can
be fatal if people are exposed
to high levels of CO, even for
short periods of time," Dr. Lisa
Conti, Director of the Division
of Environmental Health, said.
"Floridians who use indoor gas
heaters and fireplaces need to
ensure direct exhaust venting
to the outside, regularly check
and maintain fuel burning ap-
pliances, and carefully monitor
themselves and loved ones for


signs of CO poisoning." Invis-
ible, odorless and tasteless, CO
is a highly poisonous gas pro-
duced by burning fuels such as
gasoline, natural gas, kerosene,
charcoal and wood. Inside a
home, CO can come from a
gas-fueled furnace, gas water
heater, gas clothes dryer, gas
ranges, kerosene space heat-
ers, portable generators, gas
or charcoal grills, fireplaces or
wood stoves. The risk of illness
or death increases with the level
of CO in the air and the amount
of time exposed. Dangerous CO
levels can result when home ap-
pliances are not properly main-
tained or when used incorrectly.
Anyone who suspects symp-
toms of CO poisoning should go


outside immediately. If a person
has collapsed or is not breath-
ing, call 911 for emergency
medical assistance immediately
from a safer location (outside or
from a neighbor's home). Signs
of carbon monoxide poisoning
include: fatigue, chest pain, im-
paired vision and coordination,
headaches, dizziness, confu-
sion, nausea.
How to prevent carbon mon-
oxide poisoning: install and use
fuel-burning appliances accord-
ing to manufacturer instruc-
tions. Have fuel-burning appli-
ances inspected and serviced
annually by a licensed contrac-
tor. Inspect exhaust ventilation
systems, including chimneys,
flues and vents, every year. Nev-


er burn charcoal inside a house,
garage, vehicle or tent, even
in a fireplace. Avoid using un-
vented gas or kerosene heaters
in enclosed spaces, especially
sleeping areas. NEVER leave an
automobile running in a garage,
even with the garage door open.
Do not leave the rear window or
tailgate of a vehicle open while
driving. CO from the exhaust
can be pulled inside the car, van
or camper. Install CO alarms
inside the house. Purchase
battery operated CO alarms or
plug-in CO alarms with battery
backup according to manufac-
turer's installation instructions.
The CO alarm should meet
the most recent UL 2034 stan-
dard, IAS 6-96 standard or the


Give the New Year a heart healthy start


(ARA) Every year around
this time, people start to give se-
rious thought to the resolutions
they will make to improve their
lives in the New Year. Among the
more popular ones are: to save
more money, to eat healthier and
to exercise more.
For the over 5 million Ameri-
cans diagnosed with heart failure,
a progressive condition in which
the heart's muscle becomes
weakened after it is injured from
something like a heart attack or
high blood pressure, the latter
two couldn't be more important.
If you are already 70 or older,
you have a 10 percent or greater
chance of developing heart fail-
ure and a lifetime risk for eventu-
ally having heart failure that may
be as high as 1 in 5 individuals so
this information is important for
everyone to know.
One of the most important
moves you can make in the com-
ing year is to develop a treatment
plan that is right for you, accord-
ing to Clyde Yancy, MD, chair of
the education committee for the
Heart Failure Society of America, a
non-profit organization of health
care professionals and research-
ers who are dedicated to enhanc-
ing quality and duration of life for
patients with heart failure and
pre% enling the condition in those
at risk. "In. the past, people with
heart failure \ere advised to rest
and give up many of their usual
actuities, .,blt recent research
has sho-io that activity can help
them leet belier, may decrease
symptoiidnd may improve the


heart's function," Dr. Yancy says.
Whether you've been diag-
nosed with heart failure, or are
just trying to prevent yourself
from falling victim to this major
cardiovascular disorder that is on
the rise, here are some tips on '
how to take charge of your con-
dition:

Become more active
Start by picking a simple aero-
bic activity that you like, such
as gardening, walking, fishing,
swimming or biking, and do it
regularly. The goal for most peo-
ple with heart disease or at-risk
for heart disease is to accumu-
late at least 30 minutes of mild
to moderate activity per day on
most days of the week. Note that
you do not have to be active for
30 minutes in a row to benefit.
For example, you can be active
for three 10-minute blocks.
Whatever activity you choose,
do it slowly and gradually. Spend
a few minutes warming up and
cooling down before and after
each activity session to avoid in-
juring yourself and stressing your
heart. Warming up by walking or
stretching helps your body and
your heart adjust to the increased
demands of activity, and stretch-
es tendons and muscles to avoid
cramping. Cooling down allows
your heart rate, blood pressure
and other body functions to re-
turn to their usual resting levels
and brings down your adrenaline
level gradually.
Although regular activity is
good for you, you should not.ex-


ercise or increase your activities
when you feel exhausted, have a
fever or infection, have chest pain
or are experiencing more short-
ness of breath symptoms at rest
than usual. Be certain that you
select activities that are not too
strenuous or risky. Remember,
moderation is the key. Above all,
do not start a new exercise pro-
gram or engage in a new activity
without reviewing this with your
physician.

Change your diet
In addition to staying active,
it's also important for patients
.with heart failure to change their
diets. The most critical change
they'll be advised to make it to
cut back on sodium (salt) intake
and here's why. Heart failure
causes the body to hold on to ex-
tra sodium, which in turn causes
extra fluid to build up in your
body. The extra fluid makes your
heart work harder.
Cutting back on sodium is ad-
mittedly a challenge because salt
is everywhere, in canned soups,
canned vegetables, fast food,
restaurant meals and processed
foods like frozen dinners, boxed
noodle and rice dishes. So, even
if you do not add salt while cook-
ing or use a salt shaker at the
table, you may be eating too
much.
What can you do to cut back
on the sodium (salt)? Here are
four tips from the Heart Failure
Society of America:
1. Instead of salt, flavor your
food with black, cayenne and


lemon pepper; fresh herbs like
garlic, onion powder, dill, parsley
and rosemary; lemon juice; and
flavored extracts like vanilla, al-
mond, etc.
. 2. Adapt preferred foods to
low-sodium versions. Instead of
buying lunch meats, which typi-
cally contain high amounts of so-
dium, you can cook fresh chicken,
turkey, roast beef or pork without
adding salt and then cut it up for
sandwiches the next day.
3. If you like soup, instead of
buying the canned version which
is high in sodium and preserva-
tives, you can cut up fresh vege-
tables, put them in a slow cooker
and use herbs and spices for sea-
soning.
4. Pick foods naturally low in
sodium, like fresh fruits and veg-
etables, fresh meat, poultry and
fish.
It can be difficult to change
your eating habits. It may take
weeks before you enjoy the taste
of low-sodium foods, but your
taste buds will adjust. Eventually
you may not even miss the salt.
Your heart will thank you for the
lifestyle change.

failure and how to manage your

and 7 p.m.) and the students from pre-kindergarten, kindergarten and first grade all gave outstanding performances. Thank
you to Mrs. Denault, the music teacher at CES, along with all the students, teachers, and staff who worked hard to put the
program together. The day was a big success!

Many people showed up to welcome Mr. Morera back.

the large gathering with dozens
taking turns saluting the soldier,
hugging him, or simply thanking
him.
She remembered exactly how
she felt at knowing that her hus-
band was somewhere far away
from the shelters of home and
firmly steeped inside the realities
of war. The wait was an anxious
one for her.
The life of a soldier's wife is
filled with worry.
"It's not easy," said Ana. "You
never know what's gonna hap-
pen."
When he was hurt, Joel tried
calling Ana in the middle of the
night and had trouble reaching
her and it wasn't until later that
Ana finally found out what had
happened to him.
Everyone in his team made it
out, though they suffered serious
injuries in the attack.
Through the years, however,


Joel came to know at least a few
men who later were killed.
'Now that he's home, she
looks forward to spending time
with him.
According to Ana, Joel has
been doing well after his acci-
dent. After spending a month in
Germany following the loss of his
leg, Joel has been fitted with an
artificial leg and has been pro-
gressing quickly in his rehabilita-
tion. He can at least walk now,
his wife said.
For his part, Joel was shy to
embrace the title of 'hero.'
While he stood in the center
of the crowd and smiled a large
smile, Joel thanked everyone
who had showed up, and divert-
ed the praise to the soldiers who
were still in battle and those who
had died.
"I'm just one of a lot of sol-
diers who deserve this kind of
love," he said.

On Wednesday, Dec. 12, during the'final seconds of a 39-15
win over the Moore Haven Terriers, sixth-grader Sammy Rios
of the Tigers grabs a rebound to seal a 24-point margin of
victory. It was just one sign of the Clewiston Middle School
Tigers dominance on all aspects of team play.

completely dominated on both
the offensive and defensive sides
of the ball.
According to Coach Boyd, the
team has a good mix of experi-
enced and first-year players. The
first year players include Joel Her-
nandez, Daniel Holligan, Robin
McCarthy, Xavier Navarro, Luis
Rosquet, Sammy Rios and Jamari
Thomas.
"The younger players
have great potential," Coach
Boyd said. "Their potential is be-
ing harnessed through dedication
and commitment."
Coach Boyd said that lead-
ership on the Tigers squad will
come from Trevor Jackson,
Ravin Lee and Darrius Redd, all
eighth-graders. The head coach
added that the three have played
together for the past three years,
not only during the season, but
also in AAU basketball during the
off-season.
"It has helped them tremen-
dously with their fundamentals
and team chemistry," Coach
Boyd said.
Second-year players Virthavi-
ous Robinson, Chaucy Thicklin


and Teangleo Ulett are also ex-
pected to contribute considerably
to the Tigers team.
Considering that the Tigers are
averaging 49 points per game,
while allowing only 16 points per
game, an undefeated season is
not out of the question, by any
means.
Here's the rest of the Tigers'
basketball season schedule, with
seven games left to go:
1/10/08 Home Game
against Moore Haven at 5 p.m.
1/15/08 Home Game
against Glades Day at 5 p.m.
.' 1/16/08 Away Game

I 22 0S Home Game

1/24/08 Home Game
against West Glades at 5 p.m.
1/26/08 Away Game
against American Heritage in
Plantation at 11 a.m.
Final game against Immo-
kalee Date and time to be an-
nounced
"It won't be easy, but it's pos-
sible considering the talent we
have," Coach Boyd said, rather
confidently.
