Antonacci resigns from post


Coach unhappy
with ultimatum
to resign or be fired
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- In a move that
seemed to shock Clewiston Ti-
gers football fans, Coach Larry
Antonacci announced that he
will not be the team's coach next
year.
According to Dr. Robert Eg-
ley, Clewiston High principal, Mr.


Antonacci submitted his resigna-
tion last week.
It is effective at the end of the
semester.
In a telephone interview with
Mr. Antonacci, the .coach told
The Clewiston News that it was
not his desire to give up his posi-
tion. He said that he was forced,
to resign or stand to be termi-
nated from the school's athletic
program.
Mr. Antonacci said he wasn't
sure why he was offered the ulti-
matum. He said the news was a
surprise to him.


"It hit me like a ton of bricks,"
the coach said. "I promised them
I would put my three years that I
had left in the Florida retirement
system. This was going to be
home for eight or nine years."
The coach served as football
coach for the last two years. He
previously worked at the school
from 1980 to 1994.
When asked what may have
prompted his having to leave the
position, Mr. Antonacci said he
was unsure, and hoped that the
school's administration would
elaborate regarding the reasons.


He could only venture to
guess why.
"He might have thought I was
losing control of my athletes or
other people were telling him
this," the coach, who was in
the emergency room earlier this
week dealing with blood clot
complications, said.
He remembers one specific
episode over the past season: Of-
fering one of his key players the
chance to continue playing even
while outside sources pressed
him to kick the young man off
the football program.

Pioneer fights two fires at once


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Area firefighters responded
to two house call fires Friday
morning, Dec. 21, almost di-
rectly across the street from
each other.
A single wide trailer at 3505
Homestead Ave. in Pioneer
Plantation was the first to be
called in. According to Pio-
neer Volunteer Fire Chief Edith
Timms, the fire ws originally
called in to her personally at 6
a.m. but she directed the caller
to 911 for immediate response.
Firefighters left at 6:04 a.m.
While enroute to the trailer
fire, Assistant Fire Chief Ray-

The cinderblock home at 1200 Homestead Ave. was en-
gulfed in flames Friday morning, Dec. 21. Three fire de-
partments responded to this and a fire across the street.
Both are considered "suspicious."

decorated very sim-

just in time for the
holidays. It is lo-
cated on Osceola in
Clewiston.


"I've given that kid chance
after chance after chance," said
the coach, without delving too
much into specifics. "I was the
only guy on that kid's corner.
Everybody wanted him off the
football field. I wanted to give
him one more chance."
He remained irked, he said,
that he would not be.left alone
to manage the program as he
saw fit.

Marines

deliver toys

to Hendry

children

Sheriff coordinates
with group to
provide toys
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- It's still un-
certain whether there was a
Grinch at work when the Ma-
rines' truck filled with toys
broke down on Friday.
The U-Haul truck carrying
a precious cargo of toys and
Christmas gifts simply did not
work just hours before it was
scheduled to arrive in Clewis-
ton.
Of course, considering the
fact that the mission was im-
perative to the Marines, all of
-the men pitched in to unload
the truck they had just filled,
and load onto another truck to
deliver the next day.
"It was the icing on the cake
on a very long day," Sgt. Cruz,
one of the coordinators of the
toy drive, laughed.
On Saturday, Dec. 22, the
27-foot truck "filled to the roof
with toys falling out," accord-
ing to Sgt. Cruz, made its stop
at the Fairgrounds in Clewiston
where a number of deputies
were waiting to receive the
presents.
This is the. 11th year that the
Marines have provided toys for
local children, according to
Sheriff Ronnie Lee. As a former
Marine himself, Sheriff Lee has
been able to convince his for-
mer unit to continue coming
out to the Hendry area year af-
ter year.

Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge


WEST PALM BEACH -- An in-
novative project to divert and treat
urban stormwater runoff before
it enters the Arthur R. Marshall
Loxahatchee National Wildlife
Refuge is moving into its second
phase thanks to'an ongoing part-
nership between the South Flor-
ida Water Management District
(SFWMD) and the Village of Wel-
lington. The SFWMD Governing
Board recently approved a $21.5
million contract with the Village
for the second phase of the Acme
Basin B Project.
The project provides environ-
mental restoration benefits by
constructing a 368-acre storm-
water impoundment area and
pumping station. Together, they
will-create a means to store phos-
phorus-laden stormwater runoff

and treatment areas rather than
left to flow into the wildlife ref-
uge. Land needed for the project
was also transferred from SFW-
MD to the Village. Phase 2 of the
Acme Basin B Project follows the
successful completion of the S7
Pump Station, which will work
in concert with the planned im-
poundment area.
"The District is making ev-
ery effort to improve the quality
of water flowing into the Ever-
glades and Loxahatchee National
Wildlife Refuge," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "This cooperative ef-
fort with the Village of Welling-
ton demonstrates our continued
commitment to environmental
restoration."

Wal-Mart FLW Series to visit Lake Okeechobee


$1 million event to
feature anglers from
34 states, Japan

CLEWISTON - The $10 mil-
lion Wal-Mart FLW Series will visit
Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston
Jan. 23-26 for its first BP Eastern
Division tournament of the sea-
son. Hosted by Roland & Mary
Ann Martin's Marina & Resort, the
tournament will feature as many
as 400 top bass anglers from 34
states, Japan and Canada casting
for top awards of $125,000 in the
Pro Division and $25,000 in the
Co-angler Division.
"The water has been extreme-
ly low and FLW Outdoors has
worked with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion to come up with alternate
plans for the event," said FLW
Outdoors' Director of Tourna-
ment Operations Bill Taylor. "As a
result, anglers will be able to lock
outside of Lake Okeechobee and
fish up to the S-78 Franklin lock
on the Caloosahatchee River as
well as the S-80 lock on the St. Lu-
cie Canal. Anglers also may fish
pools D and E and up to the S-65
C lock on the Kissimmee River.".
With the water as low as it is,
the move will open up a lot more
water for anglers to fish.
"There's still a lot of fish to be
caught in the lake, but they tend
to roam around more when they
don't have those massive grass
beds," said BP pro J.T. Kenney
of *Port Charlotte, who posted
an 11th-place finish at the Lake
Okeechobee event in 2007. "The
water's so low that the fish can
be found clustered around small
depressions and other similar
spots."
Kenney said the combina-
tion of low water and cold fronts
could produce catches similar to
the 2007 event.
"You'll have guys bring in a
huge catch one day and then two
smaller bags the next couple of
days," Kenney said. "The fish get,
unpredictable. They'll be there
one tda and they're gone the
next. But il a guy 'catches a big
bag one da aund then eight or 10
pounds the other two days, he's
going to be right where he needs
to be todend-up near the top."
Kerine\ said the areas opened
up bv the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission have
great populations of bass. While
he realizes the numbers of fish in
:he''er.s d d cftiral.s ri 'riot be
as great as the numbers found in
the lake, he said the fish should
be more predictable.

deeper waters of the rivers and
canals will likely be the order of
the day for tournament fisher-
men according to Kenney. He
predicts that weights should be
solid for the tournament and an-
glers could need weights nearing
40 pounds to make the cut and
as much as 65 pounds to win.
Anglers will take off from
Roland & Mary Ann Martin's
Marina & Resort located at 920
E. Del Monte Ave. in Clewiston
at 7 each morning. Wednesday,
Thursday and Friday's weigh-ins
will also be held at the marina
beginning at 3 p.m. Saturday's
final weigh-in will be held at the
Wal-Mart store located at 1005
W Sugarland Hwy. in Clewiston
beginning at 4 p.m. Children will
be treated to a Family Fun Zone
prior to Saturday's weigh-in from
noon to 4 p.m. at Wal-Mart. Ac-
tivities. in the Family Fun Zone
include the Kellogg's trout pond,
a Ranger boat simulator and as-
sorted fishing-themed games. All
activities are free and open to the
public.
The entire field competes for
the first three days of FLW Series
'events Co-angler wirneiis are de-
termined on day three based on
.the heaviest accumulated three-
day weight. The top 10 profes-
, sionals continue competition on
day four, and the winner is deter-
mined by the heaviest accumu-


lated weight from all four days.
In FLW Series competition,
pros and co-anglers are ran-
domly paired each day, with pros
supplying the boat, controlling
boat movement and competing
against other pros. Co-anglers
fish from the back deck against
other co-anglers. The total purse
for the Lake Okeechobee tour-
nament is $1 million, including
$10,000 through 50th place and
$2,000 through 75th place in the
Pro Division. Ultimately, all an-
glers in the tournament will also
be competing for valuable points
in the hope of qualifying for the
Wal-Mart FLW Series Fish-Off
and a shot at advancing to the
$2 million, 2009 Forrest Wood
Cup, where the winning pro will
earn as much as $1 million - the
sport's biggest award.

ment will be broadcast to 81 mil-

Land acquisition aids Indian River Lagoon restoration


WEST PALM BEACH -- Resto-
ration of the Indian River Lagoon
moved another step forward as
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) Govern-
ing Board approved a 1,772-acre
land acquisition in St. Lucie
County. The site will be used in
conjunction with other acquired
lands for two storage reservoirs
designed to improve the timing
and quality of water flowing into
the lagoon.
"The District's investment in
this land is an important mile-
stone in the restoration of the
Indian River Lagoon," said Me-
lissa Meeker, who represents the
Treasure Coast on the SFWMD
Governing Board. "The C-23/24
project is critical to capturing and
treating water currently going to
tide and impacting one of Flori-
da's most important and beauti-
ful estuaries."
When complete, the two


reservoirs will provide approxi-
mately 92,000 acre-feet of water
storage to capture water from
the C-23 and C-24 canals before it
flows into the North Fork of the St.
Lucie River. An adjacent Storm-
water Treatment Area (STA) will
be built to improve water quality.
Purchase of the 1,772-acre parcel
completes the land acquisition
necessary for the north (C-23)
reservoir and achieves 80 percent
of the land needed for the south
(C-24) reservoir. All lands needed
� for construction of the 2,568-acre
STA are in public ownership.
The District is investing $50.5
million over three years for the
newest land parcel. The owner
will turn over title to the land at
the closing, which is scheduled
for next month. SFWMD will
then receive payments on the
land while it remains in citrus
production until construction of .
the reservoirs and STA begins.


The C-23 and C-24 reservoirs
and treatment wetland are a part
of the $1.365 billion plan to re-
store the Indian River Lagoon,
a series of projects included in
the state-federal partnership to
restore America's Everglades.
Federal participation in these
restoration projects was recently
authorized by Congress as part of
the 2007 Water Resources Devel-
opment Act.
The Indian River Lagoon-
South restoration project will re-
turn historic flows of cleaner wa-
ter across more than 90,000 acres
of natural land spanning Martin,
St. Lucie and Okeechobee coun-
ties. The plan includes construc-
tion and operation of 12,600 acres
of inland reservoirs and 9,000
acres of pollution-filtering treat-
ment marsh. The reservoirs and
treatment marshes, which will
provide approximately 170,000
acre-feet of water storage, will


help to restore habitat, improve
water quality and return a natural
flow of fresh water to the St. Lucie
and Indian River estuaries.

glades Restoration Plan, please

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news - the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

Make a list and



check it twice


The other day on our radio
show, we had a call from a
woman who wanted to make
some changes in her life with
regard to the food they were
eating. She said she knew it
was out of control and things
had to change. She felt bad,
she had no energy and she
wanted a better way.
Does that describe you?
You know things aren't right
in your pantry-you know you
could do better in your fridge,
too. Dinner is a wait-and-see
proposition; sometimes you
have time to make it, but most
times you drive thru or order
pizza. There is no semblance
of order to the food in your
life and the concern for nu-
trition is secondary and only
comes in pangs of guilt, not
from planning.
It doesn't have to be like
this. Taking care of the food in
your family's life doesn't have
to be hard, massively time
consuming or brain numbing.
You just have to spend a small
amount of time on it and it will
pay you back in dividends-I
promise!
Here are 5 simple rules of
thumb to keep in mind next
'time you're in the grocery
- ,tore. This will help you get
the food that will make you
feel good, not guilty:

1) Buy stuff that is grown
in the ground and easily rec-
ognizable. Also known as fruit
and vegetables, most of these
items won't come in boxes
with colorful labels.
2) With few exceptions,
most food purchased with a
coupon is really pseudo-food
that you're not going to want
to put in your body. Even if
you can double a coupon and
buy Hot Pockets, Bagel Bites
or something else" equally
unworthy for less than a dol-
lar, do you still REALLY think
this is such a good deal when
you consider the negative nu-
trition you're really going to
consume?
3) Read what's in the food
you are considering purchas-
ing. If you can't pronounce
it, don't buy it. Further, if you
don't know what some of the
ingredients are on the list,
don't buy it either.


4) Make sure you are buy-
ing food without dyes. Did you
know that the pink coloring of
Good and Plenty candy comes
from cochineal beetles and
their eggs? Pink yogurts also
have this coloring and yes, it
also comes from dead bugs
and their offspring. Sounds
yummy, doesn't it?
5) Use a list!! For goodness
sake, you can't make magical
menus appear off the top of
your head, shopping in the
grocery store without a list.
It takes planning, a menu, a
little creativity and yes, a gro-
cery list! I have a bunch of
sample menus (with the gro-,
cery list) for you to use if you
want to give them a try-you
know where the Dinner Di'va
lives. ;-)
We have enough on our
plates (bad pun, sorry) with-
out having the food in our
house be an issue. Don't you
agree? Then hop on the band
wagon and let's get the food
in our households under con-
trol so that it is helping us to
be the best we can be, not
weighing us down, making us
feel guilty.
Life is too short for crum-
my nutrition. Do like Santa-
make a list and check it twice.
You really do need to know
what foods are naughty and
which ones are nice.

ner on your table check out

By Sean Moore
I hope the holiday was great
for all of you.
In the last few weeks I have
mentioned credit on and off
in my writings, and I can not
stress enough how important
having good credit is to the
business world. It will play a
role in funding; a role in po-
tential investors in your com-
pany and it can and will play
a role in the relationships you
are able to establish with sup-
plies you work with. The credit
issue follows you even if you
have no interest in business as


you need it to buy a home or a
new car, or to get a credit card.
So the question is how can you
make sure your credit score is
good enough?
I am issuing an open invita-
tion to a seminar that I have
put together. At this seminar
we will talk about keeping your
good credit good, or how to re-
store it to the level you need in
life. The seminar will be held
on Jan. 16, from 2 until 4 p.m.
in the Beardsley Room at the
John Boy Auditorium. Ready
for the best part? There is no
charge to attend! That's right,
attendance is FREE! We real-


ize the importance of this issue
and when it is this important,
we want to make it as acces-
sible to everyone. Plus, I am
sure you will have all bought
so many Christmas presents
that you may not have money
left to pay to attend a seminar!
This is also a great time for you
to bring the things you bought
for me! Don't forget, I look
good in the color blue and love
electronics!
Repeat this after me; Give
me Some Credit- Wednesday
Jan. 18, from 2 until 4 p.m. at
the John Boy Auditorium. This
is one everyone can get infor-


nation from so, I hope to see
you all there. Call or email nme
to reserve your seat. Contact
information is listed below.
See you next week!

University of Florida
GAINESVILLE --- Home buyers ap-
preciate the benefits of "green" com-
munities, but residents don't neces-
sarily lead more eco-friendly lives
than their neighbors in traditional
homes, according to two University
of Florida studies conducted in the
fast-growing state.
The findings could mean some
homeowners in green communities
don't know enough about how to
reduce their environmental impact,
said Mark Hostetler, an associate pro-
fessor with UF's Institute of Food and
Agricultural Sciences.
Green communities are designed
to have less environmental impact
than traditional housing develop-
ments. The homes often feature en-
ergy-saving appliances, extensive in-
sulation and yards with native plants;
common areas typically include lots
of green space and drainage systems
that minimize stormwater runoff.
People moving into green devel-
opments may simply be interested in
open space, energy efficient homes or
the chance to see wildlife, Hostetler
said, and may not bring with them a
strong commitment to environmental
issues.
"You have to engage the people
that live in these communities," Mr.
Hostetler said. "It's a combination of
things, of not only education, raising
awareness, but understanding the
barriers that everyday people have,
to make it easier for them to involve
themselves in sustainable type of liv-
ing."
In the studies, Mr .Hostetler and
graduate student Krystal Noiseux
queried new homeowners in two
pairs of Central Florida communities.
Each pair consisted of a green hous-
ing development and a traditional
one of similar size, home value and
location.
The researchers mailed question-
naires to more than 900 households
in total, of which 340 responded.
The questionnaires were sent in June
2006 and mailed only to residents
who bought their homes in the past
two years.
Residents of both types of commu-
nities were concerned with indoor air
quality, green space and energy effi-
ciency, all of which are usually priori-
ties in green developments.
But residents of both types of
communities had only a moderate-
to low-level commitment to environ-
mental issues, responses showed.
The questionnaire contained a total
of 40 questions about environmental
knowledge, attitudes and behaviors.

"We felt that the South Florida

these projects to preserve and restore
the Everglades, epitomized how in-

have an impact well beyond the local

said Amy B. Resnick, editor in chief of
The Bond Buyer..
In 2004, Florida fast-tracked the
funding, design and construction of
Acceler8 projects through COPs fi-
nancing to bring positive benefits to
the Everglades sooner. As opposed
to the "pay as you go" approach, tax-
payer dollars needed for construction
are significantly leveraged, and the
expedited course of action reaffirms
the commitment of the State to revi-
talize the Everglades ecosystem.
"The COPs program is a living,

Remember the most



precious gift


All of our lives we have spent put-
ting out fires. These fires were started
by ou'r perfectionism and 6ur procras-
tination. Along with panic of these
fires come the squeals of martyrdom
and yells of dissatisfaction. We have
all done this and it is our family who
have had listen to it.
Why do we torture our family with
hurtful words? I can tell you why! You
are so stressed out and feeling like a
martyr! This has got to stop! I can help
you get rid of the stress, but it us up to
you to curb those angry words. The
first step is to follow our directions
for your routines, getting dressed to
shoes, hair and face.
It is up to you to change your at-
titude toward your family! Once you
change your martyred outlook to
one of blessing your family and giv-
ing teaching moments, you will see
a change in them. I know that you
don't believe me, but you can only
change yourself. It is by your example
that your family will begin to help
and support your efforts to secure a
peaceful home.
What does your wicked tongue do
to your children, your husband and
most of all you. It doesn't tell them
you love them. It makes them feel less
than; it hurts their self-worth. They
feel that they have no say in things.
It makes your husband feel that he is
married to his mother! I don't even
want to go there. They feel like ser-
vants, instead of family members.
Those harsh words are worse than a
whipping. You cut your family out of
the conversational loop. The family
can't even say what is on their mind
because they are afraid of you. Home
life is based on the fear of not making
mother mad. Your family members
hide from you. They become afraid to
tell you when something happens.
After those words have come from
your lips, just how do you feel then?
Do you feel laden with guilt or do you
even realize you are barking nasty
remarks their way. Oblivious to the
torture you have inflicted upon your
loved ones.
There is absolutely no excuse for
this. I don't want to hear that this is
the only way I can get my family to do
anything. This is the lie that you tell
yourself to not feel guilty. It is time to
forgive yourself and then ask them to
forgive you.
Many times in our lives we are
faced with things that are difficult. As
sidetracked people we allow our per-
fectionism to hurt us and our children.
We just do not know that is what is
causing us to be raving banshees.
Now you have a chance to change
by taking actions. You may not have

known how to change in the past but
you are learning. Take these words
into your heart and forgive yourself.
You know the things you have said.
This can be the beginning of a new
relationship with your family.
I would like to suggest that you
start writing your feelings down too.
Not just the pain you are feeling but
how you can change. First you have
"to forgive yourself. You are just learn-
ing these things; the more you write
the more you will discover about
yourself. You are not expected to be
perfect. Love yourself enough to take
these words and go forward from
here. This is not the end- but the be-
ginning of a new life. After you forgive
yourself and get in touch with your
own feelings; then you can ask for
forgiveness. My heart goes out to ~ oul
My prayers are with you and your
whole family.
You can do this; you found us be-
cause you were looking for a change
in your life. You are willing to make
changes.
Your tongue can criticize or it can
encourage. The choice is all yours. If
you have not changed your attitude,
then how can you expect to see a
change in them. It has to come from
the heart. If not they will see right
through you. They may not even be-
lieve it at first, because you will not
be sounding like the mother that have
been used to all your life. The children
may think the aliens have taken their
real mother away. Prove to them and
their father that you have changed.
Sprinkle your words of love, encour-
agement and teaching, all over your
home. Apologize for your tongue.
Don't play the martyr game anymore.
No one loves a martyr. Not even you!
It time to FLY without the Guilt;
forgive yourself!

Those results are significant, Mr.
Hostetler said, because all homeown-
ers can influence their own environ-
mental impact. Day-to-day choices
such, as setting the thermostat, wa-
tering the lawn or choosing plants,
for the yard influence a household's
resource consumption. The studies
indicate that residents of green com-
munities don't necessarily conserve
resources better than residents of tra-
ditional developments.
He believes that in any communi-
ty, green or traditional, there's a small
percentage of people who'd go all-
out to live sustainably, and another
group who'd refuse to inconvenience
themselves in the least.
The rest -- perhaps 80 to 90 per-
cent, by his estimate -- are willing to
reduce their resource consumption
but may not understand how. For ex-
ample, using ceiling fans rather than
an air conditioner may save hundreds
of dollars per year, but a homeowner
may not think to do it.
It's hard to say how much the UF
findings can be generalized to other
parts of the country; the studies need
to be replicated elsewhere, Hostetler
said. However, the results do indicate
that developers of green communi-
ties should thoroughly educate home
buyers.
What's certain is that home buy-
ers -- and the general public -- will
be hearing more about green homes
and communities, said Hal Knowles,
a consultant for UF's Program for Re-
source Efficient Communities, part
of the Florida Cooperative Extension
Service.
Green construction became popu-
lar in the United States during the
1990s, following the formation of
the U.S. Green Building Council, a
nonprofit that promotes sustainable
building practices and offers a widely
recognized certification program, Mr.
Knowles said.
Green certification can be an im-
portant marketing tool, said Nancy
Richardson, director of Audubon
International's Audubon Signature
Programs, which certify new devel-
opments.
"A developer is looking for some-
thing that makes them unique in the
marketplace," Ms. Richardson said.
"There's no doubt that (certification)
does help."
But some environmentalists de-
bate which standards are needed,
Hostetler said.
"There is much discussion about
the bar being set too low in these
certifications and it is sometimes too
easy being green," he said.


Farmers, ranchers encouraged to participate in census


TALLAHASSEE -- Florida Agriculture
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging the state's farmers and ranchers
to watch their mail in early January for
the arrival of the 2007 Census of Agri-
culture form.
"I urge all of Florida's agricultural
producers to participate in the Census
by completing and returning the form,"
Bronson said. "The input received
by the Census helps shape the future
of agriculture for years to come, and
we want to make sure that the voices
of Florida's farmers and' ranchers are
heard."
Conducted every five years by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture, the
Census is a complete count of the
nation's farms and ranches and the
people who operate them. The Census
examines land use and ownership, op-
erator characteristics, production prac-
tices, income and expenditures and
other topics. It provides the only source
of uniform, comprehensive agricultural
data for every county in the nation.
"Regardless of how large or small
their operation or what kinds of prod-
ucts they produce, it's important for
Florida farmers and ranchers to com-
plete and return the form," Bronson
said. "By participating in the Census,
they will help themselves and their
communities."


USDA's National Agricultural Statis-
tics Service (NASS) will mail out Cen-
sus forms on December 28, 2007, to
collect data for the 2007 calendar year.
Completed forms are due by Febru-
ary 4, 2008. Producers can return their
forms by mail or fill out the Census on-
line via a secure web site.
"The Census of Agriculture provides
information that benefits agricultural
producers and their communities in
many ways," Bronson said. "For in-
stance, policy-makers factor Census
data into decisions concerning agri-
cultural and rural programs. Commu-
nity planners use Census data to tar-
get needed services to rural residents.
Companies rely on Census data when
determining where to locate their op-
erations. And farmers themselves can
use Census data to help make critical
decisions about their businesses."
For more information about the
2007 Census of Agriculture, contact the
NASS Florida Field Office at (407) 648-
6013 or 1-800-344-6277 or visit www.
agcensus.usda.gov.

What is the Census
of Agriculture?
The Census of Agriculture is a com-
plete count, taken every five years, of
America's farms and ranches and the


people who operate them. It is the
most complete agricultural data re-
source available, providing the only
source of uniform, comprehensive in-
.formation for every county in the na-
tion. The Census provides information
on land use and ownership, operator.
characteristics, production practices,
income and expenditures, and many
other important topics. The 2007 Cen-
sus of Agriculture is your voice, your
future, your responsibility.
By participating in the 2007 Census,
producers can help show the nation
the value and importance of U.S. agri-
culture. This is an opportunity for every
producer to show how agriculture con-
tributes to America by providing food,
fuel and fiber. Each producer has the
power to influence key decisions that
will shape the direction of American
agriculture for years to come, includ-
ing:
* Transportation and marketing lo-
cations;
* Farm services;
* Production practices and new
technologies; and,
* Policy decisions.

The future
By responding to the Census, every
producer can have a positive impact
on the future of their own operation


and their entire community. The Cen-
sus provides valuable information used
for:
* Community planning:
* Farm succession planning:
* Store/company locations:
* Availability of operational loans
,and other funding:
* Location and staffing of USDA ser-
vice centers: and,
* Federal budget support for agri-
culture.

Everyone's responsibility
Everyone's response to the Census
makes a difference. To assure we are
providing the best tools and reports,
we need accurate information from all
farmers and ranchers no matter how
large or small their operations. This
information is used to make a positive
difference in local communities. Ad-
ditionally, responses are required and
protected by law.

What to Do?
Producers should look for the Cen-
sus form in their mailboxes in early
January 2008.
Forms must be mailed back or com-
pleted online by Feb. 4, 2008.
Visit www.agcensus.usda.gov for

utive Director Carol Ann Wehle.
Since 2000, Florida has invested
close to $2 billion toward the Com-
prehensive Everglades Restoration
Plan. Just this year, the state expanded
its restoration efforts to the northern
part of the ecosystem and extended a
dedicated trust fund through 2020 to
set aside another $2.3 billion in state
funding toward restoration of the
South Florida ecosystem.
Florida's 2007-08 budget includes
close to $200 million for the resto-
ration and protection of the South
Florida ecosystem, allocating $100
million for Everglades restoration,
$54 million for the restoration of Lake
Okeechobee, as well as $40 million
to protect the health of the Caloosa-
hatchee and St. Lucie estuaries.

Boy Scouting is popular in early Clewiston


By Beryl Bowden
Edited by MaryAnn
Morris
INI Florida
The Boy Scouts were incorpo-
rated under the laws of the Dis-
trict of Columbia, Feb. 8, 1910 by
W.D. Boyce. By 1912, there were
Boy Scout Troops in every state.
In Clewiston, in 1933, Dan Beard,
the highest-ranking Boy Scout of-
ficial was a guest at a banquet at
the Clewiston Inn. It was a scout
function attended by 75 scout offi-
cials, leaders and advanced scouts
from Fort Myers and other towns
around the lake. One boy, James
Wynn, had the thrill of a lifetime
when Mr. Beard presented him
with his Eagle Scout badge.
Now, this brings up an er-
ror Ms. Bowden recounts in her
column that was written in the
1980s.
It seems that there were two
boys named James Winn in
Clewiston back then; one name
was spelled Winn and the other
Wynn. A phone call from James
Wynn of Webster, Florida straight-
ened it out. Our paper showed
the wrong boy, James Winn, re-
ceiving the award!
"In 1933, Scouting was grow-
ing throughout the area' both
the Moore Haven and Clewiston
Troops were affiliated with the
Fort Myers Council. Both towns
were proud of their fine Scout
Troops. Upon reading the column
earlier this month (December),
James Wynn I:-lph.-n-,d at once.,
..."Now a' , iin , .'lI ,: physema,
he rarely goes out, but he recalled
the every moment of that awards
day in 1933. Bob Patterson re-
ceived Second Class at this event.
The troop was sponsored by the
American Legion Post in Clew-
iston and H.R. Hall represented
the Legion at the event, remem-
bered Mr. Wynn. He still has his
Eagle Scout Badge safely kept in
its own box, but most precious is
his Eagle Scout certificate, signed
by Dan Beard, himself.
"The troop presented Mr.
Beard with a belt made especially
for the occasion. The insignia of
each stage of scouting advance-
ment was woven into the pat-
terns, recalled Mr. Wynn.
Also in those early years of
scouting, Wallace Daughtry, who

program.
By Spring 2009, Edison an-
ticipates offering six bachelor's
degree programs with a poten-
tial enrollment of approximately
four hundred students. The Col-

Wise men still seek Him even today


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
When Jesus was born in Beth-
lehem there
came to do him .o
homage wise .
men from the
East. We call
this event the
Epiphany, and - :
traditionally cel- .
ebrate it on Jan.
6, the twelfth day
of Christmas. An John
epiphany is a Hicks
moment of sud-
den intuitive understanding, a
flash of insight. Many times it is
associated with an appearance
or manifestation of God. On this
day of Epiphany, we celebrate the
revealing of Jesus as Christ to the
Gentiles (that's us) in the persons
of the Magi.
The wise men spent their
whole lives looking for the sign
of the new born king. When they


had their epiphany, they went on
a journey of great distance, fol-
lowing the sign from God to find
the newborn king and savior.
Finding Christ, they offered gifts
out of their resources in response
to God's gift of love.
Discovering the spirit of God
and the presence of Christ in
our life is rarely experienced as a
blinding light or a burning bush.
Growing our soul and filling our
spirit with the right nutrients and
nourishment often requires an
intentional search. Fortunately
however, we have this promise
in Jeremiah 29:13: "You will seek
me and find me when you seek
me with all your heart."
All of us are familiar with the
game children play called hide
and seek. During a Church Christ-
mas dinner one year at the Clear-
water Church I served, I noticed
that it was getting hard for some of
the children to sit. still, so a group
of us went over to the office area
and played hide and seek.


We had a great time, especial-
ly since it was the pastor's office
and they had the pastor playing
with them. Guess who got to be
"it"?
I closed my eyes and began
to count, one thousand one, one
thousand two, one thousand
three -all during this time I could
hear. them running all around
giggling and trying to find a spe-
cial place to hide. One thousand
eight, one thousand nine. "What
was I supposed to count to?" The
answer came back, "Ten!"
"One thousand ten, ready or
not, here I come!" I knew where
one was hiding because he an-
swered me. Before I could open
my eyes, I heard the closet door
slam shut, so I knew where an-
other was hiding. Immediately,
the desk in the front office began
to giggle unlike I had ever heard
that desk giggle before. I went to.
look, and what to my wandering
eyes should appear, but two well
used tennis shoes sticking out


from under the desk, and there
were feet attached.
They were thrilled as I walked
directly over to them and played
at chasing them. I soon found
them all. At first, it seemed to me
that they might have found bet-
ter hiding places, but I've realized
something over the years, there is
fun in hiding, but the real fun is in
being found, in being discovered.
The same is true for us in life.
God cares enough about us to of-
fer us the gift of grace and love,
but doesn't force this gift on us.
However, the signs are there for
us to follow. Whether it's the
Bethlehem Star or the sharing
with friends and colleagues, the
Christ child is God's way of stick-
ing His feet from under the desk
of life and proclaiming for all the
world to hear, "Here I am! Come
and find me!"
"You will find me when you
seek me with all your heart", says
God. It is what all wise men and
wise women do these days.

Your life -- a two-way proposition now


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As 2007 winds down and we
crank up 2008 there is something
of which we all need to take
note. Life is a two-way proposi-
tion. It always returns whatever
you give it. And no one ever "gets
away" with anything. Sooner or
later each one receives back that
which he invests in life and living.
Many people like to think in
terms of luck, or chance. Then,
if they fail to find success or hap-
piness, they can always blame
someone else, or conditions, or
circumstances, for their failure.
They contend that the cards of
life are stacked against them, and
they must play the game accord-
ing to the rules and restrictions of
a fickle universe.
This is not true. Your life will


never be anything more, or any-
thing less, than you make it. And
wise is the man who learns to take
hold and shape his experience ac-
cording to a pattern of good.
Take a look at your life. What
do you see? Is there lack, limita-
tion, and error? Or is there in you
confidence and strength? Life is a
two-way proposition. If you are
not satisfied with the results that
are coming back to you, then it is
time to take a good long look at
what you are contributing.
Do you invest time, effort, and
energy in complaining, feeling
sorry for yourself, and vainly wish-
ing for other people and things to
change? If so, you are giving life
an attitude of dissatisfaction and
grumbling, and you may be sure
that your return will come quickly
in the form of more situations
about which you can complain.


You can always make even un-
happy conditions worse by con-
centrating on the problems.
Or on the other hand, you can
choose to make your life whatever
you want it to be. You can, when
you are willing to render first
that which you want to receive.
Would you be loved? Then be lov-
ing. Would you be healthy? Then
stop concentrating on symptoms
and start breathing deeply, walk-
ing easily, and believing. in your
own potential of perfect health
and wholeness. Would you be
prosperous and successful? Then
sow the seeds of prosperity and
success by identifying with these
ideas in mind, cultivating an at-
titude of success and affluence,,
and expressing your highest apti-
tudes and abilities. Would you re-
ceive? Then give. Would you live
in peace and harmony with oth-


ers? Then start by living in peace
and harmony with yourself. The
law works through every phase
of your experience, because life is
a two-way proposition. It always
returns to you whatever you give
it.
' Perhaps as you look around at
the lives of others, you feel that
their success or prosperity is riot
deserved; but checking up on oth-
ers is not your business. The law
takes care of returning to each
one that which he gives to live.
You have a full-time job making
your own investments in life. And
you can be sure that when you do
give to life that which you would
most like to receive, you will al-
ways be bountifully blessed. Life
always returns to you whatever
you give to it. (Read Galatians 6:7-
9 and 2nd Corinthians 9:6-8)


Christmas, miracle of miracles, gift of gifts


Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
"0 Holy. Child of Bethlehem,
descend on us \e pray, cast out
our sin and enter _______
in, be born in us . 1�
today...." How
many times we
have sung these . - :.,,
words at Christ-
mas. A very spe-
cial story and
prayer; that God
would some-
how come and Samuel S.
make the world Thomas
a better place by His presence
among us.
The thought of God coming
here in person is something be-
yond understanding, a real act of
faith. Yet it is a true story, a story
that has been witnessed and told
for countless. generations. The
story that the Lord walked on
this earth, shared with his crea-
tures and creation, loved what he
saw and finally gave his life for it.
I have heard the story of the birth
of Jesus of Nazareth many times
and each time I think of the mir-
I


acle of this humble beginning.
While surrounded with all sorts
of obstacles and dangers; on the
fringes of the society of the day,
with persecution and only make-
shift accommodations, and in a-
difficult time of year under condi-
tions that were certainly primitive
by our standards today, in spite
of it all, there is that personifica-
tion of love, a child is born. As
our children come into the world
bearing two family traditions;
the Lord came bringing Heaven
and Earth together; begotten
and born among us. We always
celebrate the birthdays of great
people and this was the birthday
of all birthdays. The Holy Child
descended and cast away our
imperfections, entering into this
life in its fullest and then giving
Himself that we may be with
Him forever in the life to come.
To celebrate this birth, all parts
of creation were there: wise men
and ordinary shepherds, foreign-
ers and local people, animals and
angels from another realm and all
illuminated by a star from the far
corners of the universe to shine
over one special place. Recently


I have encountered persons who
have been weighed down by all
that goes with our celebrations
of "Christmas;" finding the right
gift, preparing for extra events,
obligations to family, organiza-
tions with their annual affairs
and visits to see others. In the
midst of it all, some lose sight of
what it is all about. It is about the
Lord coming into the world and
all that he did by his presence, by
his acts of love, by his offering of
himself, by this special proof of
loving us in spite of all that seems
to go wrong; and.by Jesus doing
it as personally as possible in a
way that human beings might
understand.
I remember hearing about
parents trying to explain what
Christmas was about to their
young daughter and hoping she
would understand, telling her it
was about Jesus' birthday. Then
came all of the shopping, visits
to "Santa" and putting up the
tree. When Christmas morning
arrived, the parents heard a little
voice singing "Happy birthday to
you, happy birthday to you." and
thought they didn't really explain


after all. Their disappointment
was turned to joy when they
heard "Happy birthday dear Je-
sus, happy birthday to you." She
understood after all, in spite of all
of the "glitz" and distraction. In
the midst of all of our "busyness"
it is easy to forget what it is all
about. Our prayers this season
are prayers not to be forgotten.
"0 Holy Child of Bethlehem, de-
scend on us we pray..." descend
on us once more that this may be
a moment of reverence for the
greatest of miracles and greatest
gift of gifts ever to be received.
May the Lord truly enter in
once more, be born again in our
hearts and homes this season.
May all of the special memories
of Christmas, from the first one
so long ago, and throughout all
of the ages, shine in our hearts
that the gift may be proclaimed.
Let "Peace on Earth, good will
toward men," shine forth in each
of us as we contemplate it. Mer-
ry Christmas, may God's richest
blessings be with you at this sea-
son and always.

"SECRET TO BETTER HEALTH REVEALED"
The latest research points to some previously overlooked factors
.affecting a persons general health. And, it's not what you might
think. This common condition is linked to Diabetes, Heart Attacks
and Heart Disease, Low Birth Weight Babies and Miscarriage, Sinus
and Lung conditions, and Chronic Infections and Inflammation
throughout the body. It is very easily treated, but often goes undi-
agnosed and untreated. Because it is visible in the mouth only,
regular visits dental visits are a good idea. As we all know, these vis-
its are often not frequent enough to catch most preventable con-
ditions. Please make an appointment with your Local Dentist, or
call Glades Dental, Drs. Hausy and Weiland at 863-983-6347 for
more information.

Sgt. Cruz's unit operates main-

Both residences seemed to be
vacant at the time of the fires. The

the circumstances around Mr.
Antonacci's resignation, citing
personnel privacy issues.
"I can't control what he says,

groups such as Panera Bread and
others who give as much as tens
of thousands of dollars to help
purchase toys for children who

After the toys were delivered,

the fire marshal is investigating
them.
Anyone with information on
either of the fires is asked to con-

Office at 983-1440 in Clewisicn
or 674-4060 in LaBelle, or Pioneer
Fire Department at 983-9533.


Although the appointment
is not set in stone, Dr. Egley has
tapped his assistant principal, Joe
Roth, to serve as interim coach
and athletic director.
Mr. Roth formerly worked
with Clewiston Tigers Coach Al

not get toys would understand.
She remained thankful to the
Marines for being able to provide
toys.
"I think it's an awesome thing
that they do. Every child who re-
ceives a gift gets a smile and ev-
erybody volunteers their time,"
