Relay for Life 2009 kicks off


Launch event to be
held on Tuesday

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- David Mc-
Clusky's health was beginning to
deteriorate this year right before
Relay for Life 2008.
As the chair of the event, he
found the load of dealing with
arthritis, osteoporosis and other
symptoms a little daunting, but


found the help he needed to pull
off a successful event.
"It was exhausting, but I loved
if," he said.
It was the work of every vol-
unteer who pitched in last year
that made it possible. He remains
thankful for them, and hopes
they all will return for next year's
event.
Mr. McClusky will not be serv-
ing as the chair of the event this
year, handing over the reigns to
Phyllis Wilkerson, but he is serv-
ing as a volunteer.


The event itself is an over-
night affair, with teams coming
together in a show of unity, walk-
ing laps from the beginning of it
until the very end to raise funds
for cancer research. But there's
plenty more than that to keep ev-
eryone entertained.
Between informational booths
set up by local organizations, and
fun-filled games and activities,
the event is the perennial event
of the community.
It takes months of planning
to repeat the kind of success the


event enjoyed last year.
"The excitement with the
kick off is like finding out you're
pregnant," Mr. McClusky joked.
"You're preparing for the event,
so when it happens, it's not a
shock. You're not running like a
chicken with their head cut off
and you enjoy the event."
Seems that the planning pays
off.
Last year's Relay, with the
goal of raising $45,000, raised
nearly $60,000. This year's goal
is $50,000.


First days of Fall: Businesses decorate

iessw^waw~ ^ABellgb g


INI/'Jose Zaragoza
Alicia Keen and Co. in Clewiston is celebrating the arrival of Fall with a Halloween-themed decoration outside of her
business on Sugarland Highway.


Despite the weather, the Relay
proved what a close-knit com-
munity such as Clewiston can
accomplish when everyone is on
the same page.
"It rained and it rained and
it rained," said the former chair.
"To raise that kind of money with
those kinds of element problems,
it really showed the oneness of
the goal, and that was to cure
cancer."
Mr. McClusky remembers

INI Florida
Former state representative
and Hendry County commis-
sioner Joe Spratt told the board
that he felt the county could
suspend its contract with a Tal-
lahassee attorney with Holland
and Knight, who is on contract
to represent Hendry County's
interests in the South Florida
Water Management District's
proposed purchase of United
States Sugar Corp. and also the
proposed inland port.
-. 1- Mr.. Spratt-, -and- .-Gmmis--
sioner Kevin McCarthy both at-
tend most of the USSC related
meetings and Mr. Spratt said
he's not convinced it's a "done
deal." Finding the $1.75 billion
to purchase the property much
of which the state will have to
find another buyer for is pretty
"shaky," he said.
He also said the county
needs to fight for the proposed
inland port, adding that he feels
Hendry County has the best site
Sfor what promises to be a huge
economic boon to whichever
community lands it.
In the end the board voted
unanimously to suspend Mr.
Curt Kiser's contract, which may
be reactivated at any time by ap-
proval of both parties. Mr. Spratt
said he believes the work can be
handled at the staff level.

office, which has been vacant

Justin Spence is a sergeant
with the Clewiston Police
Department.
Q: What is your name?
A: Justin Spence.
Q: Where were you born?
A: Arlington, Texas. Origi-
nally I was looking at the area
after police academy. I went to
Jacksonville and started my law
enforcement career there. I got
attracted to the South Florida
area. I knew some people here.
I went to high school in Ft. My-


ers. I was an explorer with the
Port Authority Police Depart-
ment. That's kind of how I got
started in law enforcement. I
still knew a lot of people down
here in Ft. Myers and Clewiston.
Officer Tito Nieves was actually
one of my explorers advisers
way back in the day.
Q: What do you do?
A: Currently I'm a sergeant.
I still am involved in the inves-
tigative aspect of the Internet
Crimes Against Children Task
Force. We essentially combat in
a pro-active manner child pred-
ators that are trying to prey on
our children on the Internet. We
work in an undercover basis --


we have undercover monikers
and identities set up. We try to
go where the predators are and
hang around there until we're
approached and we develop
our investigations from there.
(Q: What have you learned
regarding the mindset of the
people who commit this kind
of crime?) I've been interested
in child crimes, child exploita-
tion, for a long time. Doing this
particular work, it's very,sur-
prising how you would expect
a stereotypical criminal to have
a long criminal background,
and What not. These offend-
ers typically have no criminal

HRMC: About Prostate Cancer


Out of sight, out of mind if
you're like most men, that pretty
much sums up your relationship
with your prostate.
Ignoring your prostate isn't a
good idea, especially if you're 50
or older.
This small gland can cause big
problems in men as they get older
- most notably, cancer.
Other than skin cancer, pros-
tate cancer is the most common
type of cancer found in American
men.
In fact, one out of every six
men will develop prostate cancer
during his lifetime, reports the
American Cancer Society (ACS).
That's why you need to learn
about prostate cancer and why
you need to pay attention to your
prostate.
Risk Factors It's not known
what exactly causes prostate can-"
cer, but there are certain risk fac-
tors that can increase your chanc-
es of getting the disease.
The greatest risk factor associ-


ated with prostate cancer is age.
Your chance of getting the dis-
ease increases quickly after you
reach the age of 50 about two
out of every three cases of pros-
tate cancer are found in men over
65, according to the ACS.
You may also be more likely
to get prostate cancer if you have
a family history of the disease, if
you're African American, or if you
have a diet high in red meat or
high-fat dairy products.
There is nothing you can do
about some risk factors such as
family history and race, but you
can help protect yourself from
other risks by practicing a healthy
lifestyle.
Screenings The ACS recom-
mends that you talk to your doc-
tor about the benefits and risks of
prostate cancer screening when
you reach the age of 50.
If you have high risk factors for
the disease, you should discuss
testing at age 45. If you decide to
be screened for prostate cancer,


there are two tests your doctor
may recommend: 1). a digital
rectal exam (DRE) in which a
doctor inserts a gloved finger into
your rectum to check the prostate
for hard or lumpy areas and 2).
a prostate-specific antigen (PSA)
test, in which a sample of your
blood is checked to determine
your PSA level.
DRE and PSA tests can both
detect problems with your pros-
tate. Neither test, however, can
determine whether an abnormal-
ity is cancer.
You may have to undergo a bi-
opsy to rule out cancer.
Symptoms Prostate cancer
doesn't always cause symptoms.
When it does, they may in-
clude: difficulty urinating or hav-
ing the need to urinate often (es-
pecially at night), difficulty having
an erection, blood in your urine
or semen, or frequent pain in
your lower back, hips or upper
thighs.
See your doctor right away


if you experience any of these
symptoms.
You may not have prostate
cancer.
Other, more benign conditions
of the prostate can cause similar
symptoms.
However, if you do have can-
cer, you should be diagnosed as
soon as possible so that you and
your doctor can consider treat-
ment options.
Those options include watch-
ful waiting, surgery, radiation
therapy, hormone therapy or a
combination of treatments.
To find out more about your
prostate, visit one of the doctors
at Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter.
You can also go to the hospital
website to locate a physician by
accessing www.hendryreglonal.

God's Platform: Christian Unity


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
In last week's column I prom-
ised to give you God's Platform
for Christian Unity.
Just as the Democrats, Repub-
licans and Independents have
platforms on which they hope to
get elected, God has a platform to
unite all believers in Christ.
This platform is found in Ephe-
sians 4:1-6.
Plank One ONE BODY
(CHURCH): Jesus promised to
build His Church (Matthew 16)
and He promised the gates of Hell
would not prevail against IT.
He did not say "churches" in
the plural, but "church" in the
singular.
The church is called "the body
of Christ" in many places in the
scripture.
It is composed of every person
who has accepted Christ through
Faith, Repentance, Confession
and Baptism (Immersipn) who
continues faithful to Christ.


Plank Two ONE SPIRIT: The
Holy Spirit lives in the Christian (I
Cor. 6:19-20) to produce Christian
Fruit (Galatians 5:22-23).
Jesus received the Holy Spirit
above measure (John 4), the
Apostles and the household of
Cornelius received the baptismal
measure (Acts 2, 10), the Apostles
gave Miraculous Spiritual Gifts to
believers in the first century of the
church (Acts 8:18, I Cor. 12), and
all immersed believers receive the
indwellingg presence of the Holy
Spirit" when they are baptized
(Acts 2:38).
Plank Three ONE HOPE: The
One Hope of the Christian is the
return of Christ to receive him
unto Himself, "that where He is,
there we may be also." (John 14,
I Thessalonians 4:13-18).
Plank 4 ONE LORD: Jesus
Christ is the One Lord. He has to-
tal authority in Heaven and Earth
(Matthew 28:18).
He is the ONE and ONLY Head
of His Church.
He is the Founder, Foundation


and Door of His Church.
"Neither is there salvation in
any other, for there is none oth-
er name, under heaven, given
among men whereby we must
,be saved" (Acts 4:12).
Plank 5 ONE FAITH: The
world has many "faiths": Bud-
dhism, Mohammedism, Brah-
manism, Cofuscianism, Shinto-
ism, Judaism, Zoroasatrianism,
etc.
But the ONE FAITH Paul speaks
of is in Our Lord Jesus Christ.
This is the Faith that we must
.confess (Romans 10:9-10) and
live by.
This One Faith was confessed
by Peter, the Ethiopian Eunuch,
and the faith required of those
coming to Jesus.
This One Faith comes by the
Word of God (Romans 10:17).
It is impossible to please God
without it (Hebrews 1l:6)
Plank 6 ONE BAPTISM: When
you take all that the New Testa-
ment says about the Baptism of
all believers, you come up with:


Baptism is the "immersion in wa-
ter (Acts 8:36-39; Romans 6:4) of
a penitent believer in Jesus Christ
(Acts 8:37; Mark 16:15-16; Acts
2:38) for the remission of sins to
receive the gift of the Holy Spirit
(Acts 2:38). *
One is thus saved (Mark 16:16,
I Peter 3:21) and puts on Christ
through faith (Galatians 3:26-27)
and the Lord adds him to His
Church (Acts 2:41, 47).
He also "obeys the Gospel" (II
Thess. 1:8, Romans 6:3-6, 16-18).
Plank 7 ONE GOD: This is the
"Father" and that is how He is to
be addressed, according tc Jesus
(Matthew 6:9).
We are to pray "in YJesus'
Name," since He is the "orij Me-
diator between God and man" (I
Timothy 2:5).
This excludes Mariolitry,
Saints, etc.
Those who desire the Unity for
which Christ prayed (John 17:20-
21) and Paul pleaded (I Cor. 1:10-
13) will stand on God's Platform
for Unity.

Limit animal handouts to the zoo


If you feed wild animals, you're
asking for trouble.
That's the message from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC).
"You're creating a hazard for
yourself, your neighbors and the
animals," FWC biologist Anni
Mitchell said.
"It's a thrill to have animals eat
from your hand, but you need to
limit that experience to captive
animals."
Feeding wildlife can cause ani-
mals to become a nuisance and
can be harmful to their health,
according to FWC wildlife biolo-
gists.
Most importantly, it can inter-
fere with their natural survival
instincts. FWC officials said feed-
ing wildlife does not help animals
and may actually harm them.
Also, it is illegal in Florida to
-feed certain animals, including
sandhill cranes, bears, raccoons,
foxes, alligators and others.
Wild animals that get food
from human hands will start los-
ing their fear of people and their
natural ability to hunt or forage
for food on their own.
They may become aggressive
when they get hungry and do not
get fed.


In addition, the balance be-
tween food sources and wildlife
populations is delicate. In the
wild, animals produce as much
young as the food source can sus-
tain.
If other unnatural food sources
become available, such as human
handouts, animals may produce
more offspring, and that over-
loads the availability of natural
food sources, according to FWC
experts.
"If natural food sources be-
come scarce or are no longer
available, animals may starve,"
Mitchell said.
Fed animals may be "lured"
across roads to artificial foods
sources, risking dangerous en-
counters with vehicles.


Sometimes, humans uninten-
tionally feed wild animals. Pet
bowls, bird feeders or garbage
cans with loose lids can attract
animals and cause the same loss
of natural instinct as feeding them
intentionally, Mitchell said.
"Urban sprawl may put hu-
mans and wildlife in direct con-
tact, but it's best to enjoy wild ani-
mals from a distance," FWC bear
biologist Stephanie Simek said.
The FWC has a few sugges-
tions: Store pet food inside and
feed pets inside. If you must feed
your pet outside, remove the food
dishes and any spilled food im-
mediately after feeding.
Use bear-proof garbage con-
tainers and set them out the morn-
ing of pick-up, not overnight.

This Sheriff's campaign is about one thing, QUALIFICATIONS. Who is
and who is not QUALFIED to be your Sheriff and lead the Sheriff's Office
during what is te m6st challenging economic times in decades while con-
tinuing to protect the citizens of Hendry County.


I am proud to have served' over 37 years in Florida Law Enforcement. This
service has been at all levels including Chief of Police and-almost 8 years as
your Sheriff. I prepared myself for a career in law enforcement by earning
a 4 year Bachelors Degree m Criminology from Florida State University.


My opponent, wa former police officer has 8 Years & 10 months experience
in Florida Law Enforcement. Of critical importance he has NO experience
in law enforcement supervision, management, administrative or budgetary
processes. Each of these principles are vital to the successful operation of the
Sheriff's Office.


Hendry County needs the PROVEN law enforcement and administrative

rounding the financial crisis and
the government bailout plan.
We know that it can sometimes
be difficult to tell the difference
between what is happening with
big Wall-Street investment banks
such as Goldman Sachs and Le-
hman Brothers and an FDIC in-
sured community bank like First
Bank and -Trust of Indiantown.
There are important differences.
Investment banks operate dif-
ferently from commercial banks
and thrift institutions. Their pri-
mary purpose is to facilitate the
sale of stocks and bonds. These
Wall Street firms operate as advis-
ers and agents for companies that


account ana up to $25au,uu ior
retirement accounts. These banks
lend this money to consumers
and companies for autos, homes,
business equipment, etc.
Most recently the U.S. Trea-
sury Department announced an
unprecedented, voluntary one-
year guaranty program insuring
U.S. money market funds to stem
losses resulting from global fi-
nancial market turmoil. Addition-
ally we felt that it is important for
consumers to understand the key
differences between their money
market deposit account and a
money market mutual fund.
A money market mutual fund
is a short-term mutual fund that


lldat tie investment-ll will te repalu.
Until last week, these investments
carried no insurance. However,
the new guaranty program ap-
plies only to those money market
funds that pay a fee to join it, and
.would only protect assets invest-
ed prior to Sept. 20, for a period
of one year.
A money market deposit ac-
count is an interest-bearing sav-
ings account that typically earns
more than a regular savings ac-
count, but less than a money
market fund. MMDAs are.. also
less risky than MMFs:- they are
insured by the Federal Deposit
Insurance Corporation (FDIC) for
up to $100,000 per depositor per


ing taken over by the FDIC is "ex-
tremely remote.

tions, please contact First Bank

Beware of the unknown black holes


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
On Sept. 8, the Large Hadron
Collider (LHC) was finally turned
on, and we weren't turned off -
which is a good thing!
The LHC is a seventeen mile
long circular tunnel designed to
smash together protons in a re-
enactment of the Big Bang.
Originally to have been built
outside Houston, the LHC moved
to Switzerland when a combina-
tion of fears, financial and other
concerns killed the U.S. project in
the mid-90s.
The Europeans picked it up
and ran with it.
The real miracle of this proj-
ect was not the bringing together


of two protons, but the bringing
together of eight thousand physi-
cists from eighty-five different
countries to build this enormous
machine.
There is one tiny little glitch in
all this good news and impressive
scientific advancement.
That is the nagging concern
held by some researchers that
this machine could cause the end
of the world as we know it.
Those who predicted this
doomsday scenario suggest that
if physicists succeed in re-creating
the "Big Bang," they might also
create a black hole.
This black hole, a sucking void
of anti-matter, will simply slurp us
in, cannibalizing our planet and
possibly taking the entire galaxy


with it.
The unfortunate truth is that
black holes happen in our lives all
the time.
There are frequent collisions
between opposing forces that
can slam us down and suck out
our soul if we let them.
It is one thing to experience
this brokenness in the form of
forces that ambush a large num-
ber of people like Hurricane Ike
or the recent economic Wall
Street crisis.
But it is much worse when the
black hole threatens to take us
down personally, especially when
it's in front of the eyes of friends
and peers.
Come with me to a third grade
classroom.


Nine-year-old Johnny is sitting
at his desk and all of a sudden,
there is a warm feeling between
his legs and the front of his pants
are wet.
Fear-struck, Johnny can't imag-
ine how it could have happened.
When he looks up and sees
the teacher approaching with a
look in her eyes that says he has
been discovered, Johnny believes
his heart is going to stop.
As the teacher walks toward
him, classmate Susie is carrying a
goldfish bowl filled with water at
the same time.
Susie trips in front of the teach-
er and inexplicably dumps the
bowl of water in Johnny's lap.
Surprised but relieved, Johnny
repeats over and over to himself,


Regarding our current crisis


"Thank you, Lord! Thank you!"
Now, instead of being the ob-
ject of ridicule, Johnny is the ob-
ject of sympathy.
The teacher rushes him down-
stairs and gives him gym shorts to
put on. The sympathy is wonder-
ful, but as life would have it, the
ridicule that should have been his
was transferred to someone else
- Susie.
Susie tries to help, but they tell
her, "You've done enough, you
klutz!"
At the end of the day, as they
are waiting for the bus, Johnny
sees Susie and walks over to her.
"You did that on purpose,
didn't you?" Susie whispers back,
"I had an 'accident' once, too."
"-we will walk with each


other, we will walk side by side;
and we'll guard each one's digni-
ty and save each one's pride; and
they'll know we are Christians by
our love, by our love. Yes, they'll
know we are Christians by our
love."
When love and compassion is
our mission, great things can hap-
pen.
Black holes can't be created
or sustained with the collision of
love and compassion.
People may not remember ex-
actly what we say, and they may
not remember everything we did,
but they will always remember
how we made them feel.
And that can help seal up the
black holes that try to form in
their lives.


And other crises I
have faced through
the years

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D:
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was leaving a hospital one
day after making several calls
and was riding the elevator to the
ground floor.
As the door opened at one of
the lower floors, a lady asked if
I would step out and stand with
her for a few moments.
I imagine the way I dress spoke
to her about who I was and what
I represented.
I exited and we stood there.
Her face told me something
was obviously wrong; not surpris-
ing in the setting where we found
ourselves.
I asked her if she wanted to
talk or pray about anything; she
said "no."
After awhile, she told me "I'm
all right now, thank you."
We rode the elevator in silence
to the ground floor and each went
on our way.
I don't ever recall seeing her
again; that's okay.
I remember stopping at a
country gas station one night.
It was a long way from home
and I had just received bad news.
The station was about to close
and the clerk said, "You look like
you could use some coffee; just


take it, I was about to throw it out
anyway."
In the midst of my own sad-
ness and turmoil, someone was
kind and went out of his way to
ease a burden he did not even
know about.
I don't ever recall seeing him
again either, but he is remem-
bered for his simple act of kind-
ness and the difference he made
to me that night.
A man in transit came to my
office one day for a handout.
I had a few dollars to help,
shared it and told him where else
he might receive help on his jour-
ney.
This often happens in the life
of the clergy; there was nothing
special on my part and nothing
exceptional about him or the
plight where he found himself.
Months later, he returned and
said "Do you remember...?" Yes,
I remembered, and he filled in
parts of his reason for needing
help that was not shared the first
time.
He cried as he told me he had
just been released from prison
and was seriously considering
what he would have to do, return-
ing to a former life, and then not
having to do it.
I thought about how little I had
done for this person.
How little I did for someone in
a hospital one day.
How wonderful a man in a gas
station had been to me; I guess
he long since had forgotten it.


A simple act of human kind-
ness in the midst of turmoil in life;
so little and yet so much.
So many times what seems
like a small thing to one person
has great meaning to another.
In each of our lives, we are
called on to do many things that
seem "important"; on our jobs,
or in our homes, in our commu-
nities or as a nation.
Sometimes, in passing, a little
act speaks volumes about us and
makes all the difference to anoth-
er in a moment of need.
The small acts speak volumes
about us; what kind of people
we really are, what we really be-
lieve, whether we are trustworthy
or not, if we can be counted on
when the chips are down.
The Lord told His disciples
"He who is fAithful in a very little
is faithful in much; and he who is
dishonest in a very little is dishon-
est in much (Luke 16:10)."
We've been hearing a lot lately
about our economic crises and
the difficulties we face as a nation
that will affect us all.
The size of our problems has
everyone wondering where it will
all end and how we each will be
affected.
Rightly so!
There seems to be no easy
or happy solution, no escaping
the fear of hard times to come,
no avoiding the impact that will
touch each of our lives.
As I thought about those who
have been a great help to me and


those who maybe I've helped, or
who have told me I helped; it was
not in the great things on my part
or theirs, but simple acts, things
that were almost unimportant to
me and maybe unimportant to
them.
On a grander scale, if we are
to be healed and helped, it may
be our simple acts toward one
another that will make the final
difference.
The great problems and cri-
ses will be there, and work out in
God's good time and His way.
They always have; there is no
reason to doubt that these times
will be any different.
In the interim, the crucial dif-
ference may be well in how we
respond to each other, how we
treat each other in hard times.
Luke tells us that our being
faithful with small things will lead
to trust with Heavenly things (ch
16:11).
We may have a part in solving
crises or healing after all. I cannot
do everything, but I can do some-
thing.
Imagine if everyone did some-
thing small; maybe great things
would get better after all!

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?

Speak Out
Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and
easier to share your ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your
local or state Public Forum. There, you can create new
topics or comment on existing topics. You can also e-mail
comments to clewnews@newszap.com or call 863-983-9140,
but online comments get posted faster and not all phone calls
can be printed. What follows is a sampling of some of the
discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!
CONCERNS FOR TWIN LAKES: I would like to know if there is
anything being done about all the fire setting in twin lakes and when
is all this stuff going to stop? Whoever is responsible for all this needs
to be caught and never let free for a long time, people work hard for
what they have and shouldn't have their property destroyed by stupid
stuff. Grow up.
BANKING TROUBLES: A few months ago my local bank allowed
a paper check without my signature on it to be cashed, leaving me
and my children penniless for two weeks. I was told there was noth-
ing that could have been done about it. Then I learned that this bank
donated thousands to a presidential candidate. Was that off of my and
other customers' backs? I can see why a bank would donate to this
candidate who favors rich people, but is this legal? I urge all working
middle class people to pull all their money out of this bank. They have
been expanding all over South Florida dropping the word Clewiston
into their name. Well you won't get anymore of my money to support
your washed out candidate in an illegal fashion.


Fishing remains healthy tradition


By Bob Wattendorf
Freshwater fishing is one of
the many outdoor recreational
activities encouraged by the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
The FWC views outdoor rec-
reation as a tremendously ben-
eficial opportunity that should be
available to all residents and visi-
tors, and it strives to provide qual-
ity fishing, hunting and wildlife-
viewing opportunities.
Cheryl Charles, president of
the Children and Nature Network,
points out, "People throughout the
world are increasingly connected
by a resonance and passion, to
create a new common sense for
the good health of children today
and generations to come."
Dr. Andrew Lepp, assistant
professor of recreation, park and
tourism management at Kent
State, said the benefits from out-
door recreation are varied and
plentiful.
Outdoor recreation has psy-
chological benefits, including the
prevention or reduction of stress
and improved self-esteem, confi-
dence and creativity.
Dr. Lepp also contends it adds
to spiritual growth and leads to an
increased sense of exhilaration,
adventure and challenge from life.
Getting outside provides physical


benefits, such as aerobic, cardio-
vascular and muscular fitness, as
well as improved functioning of
the immune system.
It even offers benefits for the
social life. The great outdoors
affords social benefits, such as
bonding with like-minded people
who also enjoy outdoor activities,
and feeling an increased pride in
your community and nation.
The economy benefits from
all of this activity as well. Outdoor
recreation creates job opportu-
nities for others, which leads to
economic growth and preserva-
tion of the natural areas needed
for outdoor recreation increases
property values.
The workplace wins because
people who regularly participate
in outdoor recreation tend to be
more productive at work, Lepp
said.
The list continues with posi-
tive outcomes for the environ-
ment. People who participate in
outdoors activities usually have
increased environmental aware-
ness.
This awareness translates to
increased involvement in environ-
mental issues.
Specific activities such as fish-
ing can add to the enthusiasm
and provide a fun challenge to
become increasingly skillful. In


Florida, the abundance of natu-
ral waters (7,700 named lakes,
12,000 miles of fishable rivers and
canals) means the opportunity is
available to everyone.
From digging worms and mak-
ing your own cane pole, to casting
a lure, you develop a connection
with nature that comes naturally
and has been an American tra-
dition since long before Mark
Twain's tales of the adventurous
Huck Finn.
Every year the FWC works
with the Florida Disabled Out-
door Association at its Sportsabil-
ity event, and this year we joined
them at the Family Cafe event in
Orlando.
These opportunities reinforce
the pure fun of experiencing na-
ture, and we redouble our com-
mitment to making fishing acces-
sible for everyone.
Clay Dyer a professional bass
fisherman who was born without
lower legs, no arm on the left and
a partially developed arm on the
right inspired hundreds of indi-
viduals with physical and mental
challenges during his motivation-
al presentation at the Family Cafe
event.
Clay is a hero and inspiration
to virtually everyone he touches
with his life story, which he calls
"The View from Down Here is


Just Fine." He is also a spokes-
person for the C.A.S.T. for kids
program.
The FWC is doing its part by
teaching kids to fish, sponsoring
Becoming an Outdoors-Woman
events, helping create bank-fish-
ing access and building acces-
sible boat ramps, courtesy docks
and fishing piers.
Most importantly, the FWC is
dedicated to conserving and en-
hancing fisheries habitat and fish
populations for everyone.
We invite you to get outdoors
and take someone with you, so
you can enjoy all the benefits of
getting back to nature.

6 OPINION



















The First People in the New World


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The hunters were of medium
height with broad sculptured
faces, high cheekbones, piercing
dark eyes and long coarse, black
hair.
The sun had burned their skin a
rich mahogany brown, and years
of hunting had molded lean, hard
bodies, tempered like steel.
They wore leather shirts and
leggings, cured and blackened
by the smoke of countless camp
fires.
Necklaces, decorated with
carved ornate ivory amulets dan-
gled on their chests. Soft skinned
Bison moccasins, cleverly sewn
with sinew, covered their feet.
A fire hardened wooden spear
shaft, tipped with a flint point,
rested in each hunter's hand.
The hunters were trotting at a
steady gait, when a slight move-
ment on the horizon caused them
to stop abruptly and focus on the
dark objects that were moving
slowly across the open plains.
Swiftly, the hunters moved in
a single fluid motion, sprinting
across the open grassy plains to a
small, shallow gully, formed years
before by a flash flood of raging
water.
There the ambush was set,
as the hunters patiently waited
down wind from the approaching
herd of Bison.
This story took place thou-


sands of years ago when nomadic
hunters first started migrating to
North America at the end of the
Ice Age.
These people were called
the Paleolndians because they
emerged at the end of the Pleisto-
cene period, the Great Ice Age.
Who were these people,
where did they come from, and
how did they live?
To answer these questions, we
must take "A Walk in The Past."
Archeologists have different
views when identifying the time
periods and routes that Paleoln-
dians used when migrating into
North America, Central America
and South America.
Some believe the first no-
madic migrations entering North
America came from East Asia
approximately 20,000 to 35,000
years ago.
Others believe the migrations
started much sooner, 12,000 to
14,000 years ago.
What's certain is that the first
migrations occurred more than
12,000 years ago.
The Bering Strait is a natural
sea channel that is 160 feet deep
and 53 miles wide, separating
Asia and Alaska.
During the Ice Age, world sea
levels dropped several hundred
feet and the Bering Strait rose
from the sea, forming the Bering
Land Bridge that connected North
America and Asia.


Most archeologists 'believe the
first nomadic hunters from East
Asia took this route.
They think the hunting groups
migrated first across the Bering
Land Bridge into North America,
spreading across the continent
and then south to Central and
South America.
However, other archeologists
theorize that low sea levels creat-
ed many migratory routes for no-
madic hunting groups to follow.
The Aleutian Islands, hanging
like a string of pearls between
Alaska and Japan, could have
formed a land bridge that nomad-
ic groups followed.
These groups may have taken
a southern route when they en-
tered North America and migrated
into Central and South America.
Different groups from Siberia
may have followed a southern
route, by-passing other migratory
routes into North America.
However, there is no archeo-.
logical proof to support these
migratory route theories because
those would-be-routes now lay
hundreds of feet beneath the sea.
Other migratory theories spec-
ulate the low sea levels created
land routes for Pacific migrations
from Australia, New Guinea or
early European migrations from
Europe.

Beauty salons go 'green'


TALLAHASSEE-With the con-
sumer push for greener, cleaner
and more eco-friendly businesses
growing, many businesses are
looking for opportunities to show-
their environmental commitment
to consumers. In an effort to pro-
vide Florida's salons the possibil-
ity to collectively contribute to the
green movement, The Florida As-
sociation of Beauty Professionals
(FAB) launched a new, industry-
wide certification program that
will allow environmentally friend-
ly salons to demonstrate their
commitment to the industry and
consumers. The FAB PRO Green
Conscious Salon Certification is
an effort designed by the industry
and for the industry to help direct
andencourage salons to decrease
both their carbon footprint and
save money by reducing energy
costs. "Until now, salons have not
been provided an opportunity or
encouraged to become greener
and more eco-conscious," said
FAB President/CEO Rick Wallace.
"The FAB Pro Green Conscious
Salon Certification is another ex-
ample of industry self-regulation,
which has proven to be successful
in other industries.' The FAB PRO
Green Conscious Certification'
is intended to distinguish those
businesses that are implement-
ing procedures, technology and
practices that are eco-friendly. In
order to become FAB PRO Green
Conscious Certified, a salon must
meet the established criteria.
These criteria include satisfactory
completion of three core activities,
which represent a minimum of
best management practices and
include communication, commit-
ment and waste reduction. In ad-
dition, salons must demonstrate
successful completion of two
additional optional activities and
one salon-specific activity. "We
designed the certification so that it
would push salons beyond what
they were currently implement-
ing," said Joanne Powers, Chair of
the Executive Committee. "In or-
der to become and stay certified,
salons will have' to continually
move towards greener, less-toxic
and more environmentally friend-
ly practices. "FAB's goal with the
FAB PRO Green Conscious Salon
Program is to increase awareness
and support for businesses that
are taking steps to become more
environmentally friendly. The des-
ignation process has been created
to help encourage and reinforce
sustainable behaviors that lead
to positive results for the environ-
ment.

descent.
There has been no solid arche-
ological evidence to support these
theories, but nothing is written in
stone, so only time will tell,
Archeologists are in agreement
that different Eastern Asian ethnic
groups migrated to North Amer-
ica, Central America and South
America because of the multiple
native languages, cultures and
geographical settlements.
The first nomadic hunters en-
tering the Americas built simple
shelters because the small hunt-
ing groups were moving con-
stantly to follow the herds of wild
animals.
Later, warm climate changes
spelled doom for many of the
large mammals but encouraged
wider plant distribution.
The' nomadic groups started
adapting, supplementing their
primary meat diets with plants,
becoming food gatherers.
Plants (corn, pumpkins, and
beans) were domesticated, and
food gatherers became farmers.
The farmers created sedimen-
tary villages that grew into great
civilizations in North and South
America.
Some of the nomadic groups
that moved into Florida merged
with the climate changes, from
small hunting groups into food
gatherers and later farmers.
Other groups remained food
gathers because of Florida's great

Indian groups in Florida would
grow and prosper, forming large
villages that encompassed large
geographical areas in Florida.
These geographical areas
would emerge as Indian nations
that would later be identified by
European names: Tequesta, Ais,
Jeaga, Hobe, Tocobaga, Mayaimi,
Calusa, and Apalachee tribes.
Unfortunately, the true original
Indian names for these nations
and many of their languages have
been lost in time.
The lost Florida Indian nations

Book club sends daily excerpts


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
At this time in our lives, many
of us have promised ourselves to
take it easy and find time to read.
But there are so many books on
the shelves, where to start? Have
you ever wished you could read a
few pages of a book to see if it is
really what you are looking for?
I am a member of an e-mail
book club that has allowed me
to get a "taste" of a book before
I purchase it or check it out of the
library. This is one more reason to
have an e-mail address.
If you are like me, you will
look forward to this e-mail every
day. The e-mail book club, called
Dear Reader, looks at one book
per week. You get an e-mail each
day Monday through Friday and a
little more of the book is revealed.
I don't mean somebody's review.
I mean actual text from the book
itself. On Monday, the book is in-
troduced and an excerpt from the
first chapter appears in the e-mail.
Then, Tuesday through Friday you
will read more of the book until
by Friday, you will have read the
first 20 pages or so. For all of you
avid readers out there, this is
great. This is enough of the book
to know if you want to read more.
The club also introduces you to
books you-would never have oth-
erwise known existed.
SAdditionally, you can pick the
kinds of read you are looking for
by genre. Among your choices


-I


are fiction, nonfiction, business,
and more. The book club even re-
views audio books. There are ten
plus choices. No need to get stuck
on one type of book. You can
switch the type of book any time
you want. Or, you can join more
than one type of book club.
Here is how to sign up. Us-
ing your Internet browser, i.e.,
Internet Explorer or Firefox, go
to the web site www.dearreader.
com. There you will find a short
explanation of the service. Lower
on the screen are the books each
group is reading that week. One is
from fiction, one from mysteries,
etc. You just click on the group you
would like to join. When the new
page comes up, all you have to do
is enter your e-mail address and
your zip code. The zip code tells
the club which library you use.
Then click "Join the Club." On
the next page you will be asked to
choose your library from a short
list. Finally, a thank you page is
displayed. These book clubs are
hosted by a lady who lives here
in Florida--over by Tampa. She
puts a short, upbeat note in each
e-mail.
This e-mail book club service is
fully endorsed, in fact sponsored,
by libraries everywhere. There is
a link to your library's web site at
the bottom of each daily e-mail.
There you can ask your library to
reserve the book for you if you
wish.
This is also a guilt-free" book

Fiction Book Club


The beauty of fiction lies in the privilege to live life
through another's skin. temporarily escaping our wor1l
yet safely re-entering reality again after the read. Our
fiction book club lets you experiment with authors nev
and old; in worlds yet untested and untried.

Each week I feature a new book and ever+i dav.

This screen shot shows just how easy it is to sign up for a
daily email from any of the Dear Reader book clubs available.
Whether you are a fan of mystery, science fiction or romance,
you will surely find one that interests you. Your grandkids
may also be interested in the Teen selection.


club. If you don't like the sound
of a book in Monday's e-mail, just
delete it! You will probably like
the one next week.
So when you wonder where
is the fun; just what can the com-
puter do for me? Sign up for the
e-mail book club and enjoy.
I'll be back every Monday to
show you practical reasons for
getting 'to know your computer.
Happy computing.
We welcome questions and ideas for
columns. Please e-mail dtimmons@

By Bob Wattendorf
Freshwater fishing is one of
the many outdoor recreational
activities encouraged by the Flori-
da Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC).
The FWC views outdoor rec-
reation as a tremendously ben-
eficial opportunity that should be
available to all residents and visi-
tors, and it strives to provide qual-
ity fishing, hunting and wildlife-
viewing opportunities.
Cheryl Charles, president of
the Children and Nature Network,
points out, "People throughout the
world are increasingly connected
by a resonance and passion, to
create a new common sense for
the good.health of children today
and generations to come."
Dr. Andrew Lepp, assistant
professor of recreation, park and
tourism management at Kent
State, said the benefits from out-
door recreation are varied and
plentiful.
Outdoor recreation has psy-
chological benefits, including the.
prevention or reduction of stress
and improved self-esteem, confi-
dence and creativity.
Dr. Lepp also contends it adds
to spiritual growth and leads to an
increased sense of exhilaration,
adventure and challenge from life.
Getting outside provides physical
benefits, such as aerobic, cardio-
vascular and muscular fitness, as
well as improved functioning of
the immune system.
It even offers benefits for the
social life. The great outdoors
affords social benefits; such as


bonding with like-minded people
who also enjoy outdoor activities,
and feeling an increased pride in
your community and nation.
The economy benefits from
all of this activity as well. Outdoor
recreation creates job opportu-
nities for others, which leads to
economic growth and preserva-
tion of the natural areas needed
for outdoor recreation increases
property values.
The workplace wins because
people who regularly participate
in outdoor recreation tend to be
more productive at work, Lepp
said.
The list continues with posi-
tive outcomes for the environ-
ment. People who participate in
outdoors activities usually have
increased environmental aware-
ness.
This awareness translates to
increased involvement in environ-
mental issues.
Specific activities such as fish-
ing can .add to the enthusiasm
and provide a fun challenge to
become increasingly skillful. In
Florida, the abundance of natu-
ral waters (7,700 named Fakes,
12,000 miles of fishable rivers and
canals) means the opportunity is
available to everyone.
From digging worms and mak-
ing your own cane pole, to casting
a lure, you develop a connection
with nature that comes naturally
and has been an American tra-
dition since long before Mark
Twain's tales of the adventurous
Huck Finn.

Eastside Elementary Students RAK Club takes on Tiger Stadium


go on a Safari Hunt


The students at Eastside El-
ementary School were on a Safari
Hunt for their Scholastic Book Fair.
Parents and students purchased a
variety of books that were on dis-
play throughout the week. Many
of these books were appropriate
for their reading levels and were
centered on the Safari theme.
On Tuesday, parents and stu-
dents showed their creative abili-
ties by making Safari headbands,
swirl snakes, tiger puppets, and
Safari cameras. Students could
do Safari word search, or word
scrambles. It was an opportunity
for parents, teachers, and students


to join together for fun, fellowship
and refreshments.
Mrs. Dierks would like to thank
all of the parents, students and
teachers for making this book fair
a huge success. She appreciates
all the support and the numerous
hours of support by willing volun-
teers. To enhance the Scholastic
Book Fair, students created castles
at home.
These castles were in conjunc-
tion with their medieval curricu-
lum lessons taught in the media
center. Over 50 castles were
brought in made with a variety of
materials. The castles were put on


display on Family Fun Night and
many castles are still on display in
the media enter.
The students received a special
invitation inviting them to the Cas-
tle Party. They were served castle
cake, ice cream and a drink. Each
student received a castle book
and a Certificate for a free meal
from Beef O' Brady's restaurant.
The students were delighted
with their prizes because all of
them were winners. Mrs. Duke
and Mrs. Dierks would like to
thank Beef O' Brady's for their
generous incentives and support
for our school.


Students from the Clewiston
Christian School's Random Acts
of Kindness (RAK) Club were
joined by parents, staff, friends
and siblings at Tiger Stadium
on Saturday. Their mission was
to clean up the stadium and
grounds after the Clewiston High
School football game against
Glades Central, better known as
the "Sugar Bowl."
Thirty people showed up at
8:30 a.m. to begin the clean up
process which involved the use
of gloves, rakes, grabbers, buck-
ets and lots of trash bags. Al-
though several members had to
leave early due to soccer games,
the project was fully completed in
less than two hours thanks to the
many volunteers.
The stadium is usually picked
up after each home game by Bill
"Doc" Watson. Mr. Watson pro-
vided the garbage bags and over-
all supervision of the clean up
which involved separating alumi-
num cans and plastic bottles for
recycling from the general trash.
Several truck loads of trash and
recyclables were collected.


The students were amazed at was a sense of well-being for do-
the volume of trash that was on ing a good deed and a commit-
the ground and wondered why ment to be more aware of litter-
people would litter so much. ing in the future.
However, their overall reaction

Glades Central Slams Tigers, 43-0


INI/Ashley Smith
Fans packed the Clewiston stadium in anticipation of last week's game against visiting Glades
Central. Glades Central managed to outplay the Tigers, with the Tiger scorecard posting 0
points at the end of the night.


iNi/Asnley Smaln
Tiger coaches pressed their players to find ways of penetrating the Raider defense, but not-
ing seemed to work and the Raiders went on to win the much-anticipated game.


By Jeff Barwick
The Glades Central Raiders
rolled into Cane Field on Friday
night and served notice that their
top ranking in Class 3A and Num-
ber 7 in the state was right on tar-
get as they rolled up 542 yards of
total offense.


and deferred until the second
half.
Antonio McCloude returned
the opening kickoff 37 yards and
the Raiders marched to the Tiger
25 before two penalties and 3 in-
complete passes by quarterback
Leron Thomas handed the ball to


+_ Submitted photo/Jeff Barwick
Tiger Darris Hughes on a 14-yard scamper during last week's
game against Glades Central. The Tigers were unable to
come back from a Raider lead throughout the game.


The loss dropped the Tigers'
record to 2-2 while the Raiders
improved to 4-0 and have only al-
lowed 15 points.
Clewiston won the coin toss


the Tigers on downs.
Clewiston made a first down
with tailback Darris Hughes get-
ting runs of 9 and 6 yards but then
were held and Isandro Marquez


punted the ball dead at the Raid-
ers 21.
The Raiders rushed and passed
the ball to the Tiger 44 where, with
2:48 left in the period, Thomas
fired a strike to 6'5" wideout Kel-
vin Benjamin for the score.
Kicker Alanda Shaw tacked on
the point after.
The Raiders got the ball back
early in the second period and
put together a six play, 77-yard
drive.
About their only tough going
along the way was three penal-
ties against them for motion or
procedure.
Running back Antwon Chil-
som rumbled up the middle
for the final 13 yards at the 7:30
mark.
Shaw's conversion was good,
making it 14-0. The Tigers went
three and out quickly and Glades
Central took possession at their
own 25.
Despite two more Raider pen-
alties, it only took them three
snaps to cover the yards with
Thomas hitting wide receiver
Rantavious Wooten for an 83-
yard touchdown.
Shaw again converted and set
the score at 21-0.
The Tigers tried an offensive
variation and went to a direct
snap formation with speedster Ja-
marcus Smith in the deep spot.
The first snap sailed high and
through the end zone to pin a
safety on Clewiston.
Clewiston punted the free kick
and Glades Central set up their

next series near midfield.
On the first play, Thomas
dropped back and threw across
the middle.
Tiger linebacker Dillon Irey
deflected the ball and fellow line-
backer Fred Washington snatched
it in and returned the ball to the
Raider 39.
Another Raider penalty gave
the Tigers a first down but Tiger
quarterback Isandro Marquez'
third down pass was picked off by
Raider cornerback Charles Dow-
ers with only 31 seconds remain-
ing in the half.
True to Glades Central form
over the history of the rivalry with
Clewiston, a few seconds on the
clock meant absolutely nothing.
On the second snap, Thomas
found Wooten loose on the side-
line, Wooten grabbed the pass,
stopped, changed directions, side
stepped two Tiger defenders and
raced for an 83-yard touchdown
with 7 seconds remaining.
The Raiders were penalized
15 yards for excessive celebration
and brought in long kicker Rob-
ert Ferguson to attempt the extra
point from 35 yards out.
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino stormed in and blocked
the kick.
The third period was a score-
less event.
With 2:50 on the clock, Dillon
Irey gave the Tiger faithful some-
thing to cheer about when he
snuffed a Raider drive by picking
off a Thomas pass and returning
it 41 yards but the Tiger offense
just couldn't get the ball moving.
In the final period, Glades Cen-
tral scored twice.
Back-up running back James
Melton raced for a 57-yard score
early in the quarter and Chilsom
scored his second on the night on
a 13-yard scamper with 7:41 left
in the game.
Shaw and Ferguson, respec-
tively, converted the extra points.
Tiger senior tailback Darris
Hughes, who entered the game
averaging over 12 yards per carry,
was held to 66 hard earned yards
on 20 attempts.
Tiger Head Coach Joe Roth
was disappointed saying, "We
had been making weekly prog-
ress on becoming a better foot-
ball team but that didn't happen
tonight. We made a lot of mis-
takes against a great team." Add-
ing after a pause, "We knew we
had to avoid the big plays arid we
didn't. They are good but not 43
points better."
Junior linebacker Dillon Irey
led Clewiston with 7 tackles, a
pass interception returned for 41
yards, and a tipped pass that line-.
backer Fred Washington snared'


and returned 21 yards.
The Raiders wore down the Ti-
gers who dressed only 23 players
for the contest.
When it was all said and done,
Clewiston emerged in fairly good
physical condition.
Linebacker Leonard Newton
had what appeared to be a minor
leg injury and center Dillon Irey
had a hurting right hand.
Linebacker and reserve run-
ning back Joey Cordova missed
the game due to a hamstring
pull.
Hopefully, all will be healthy
for the Tigers' non-district game
Friday night at Delray American
Heritage.
The Tigers are hoping to
avenge a 56-0 pasting from the
Stallions last season.

Terriers win in impressive fashion


INI/Naji Tobias
The national anthem was led by the Moore Haven High School marching band, which helps
sets the stage for an easy home win on Sept. 25.

Moore Haven quarterback Dalton Britt escapes a Hurricanes rush in the first quarter, show-
ing his mobility in the Terriers 61-20 win over Miami-Hillel Community Day on Sept. 25.


Hall rushes for 124
yards, three scores
in first half

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN Who would
have thought that the Moore Ha-
ven Terriers would score 61 points
in the first half?
Believe it, because that's what
happened against. Miami Hillel
Community Day on Thursday,
Sept. 25.
In Moore Haven's 61-20
thumping of the Hurricanes, ju-
nior running back Fred Hall led


the team with three first half
touchdowns on 13 carries for 124
rushing yards (135 overall);
Senior quarterback Dalton
Britt was 9-for-12 passing with
230 yards and three touchdowns.
He got wide receivers Xavier
Fagan (five receptions, 121 yards)
and Keonte White (two recep-
tions, 58 yards) involved in the
game, throwing for scores to
each of them,
Both Fagan (two touchdowns)
and White (one touchdown)
scored in the first half.
Also, while the starters were
in the game, Elazarus Balckmon
(one reception, 40 yards) scored
a touchdown on a 50-yard punt


return with 6:00 left in the first
half.
Just 50 seconds later, with 5:10
left in the second quarter, Terry
Hallback returned a 57-yard inter-
ception for a touchdown to put
Moore Haven up, 55-14.
Hall. finished Moore Haven's
scoring with just 36.5 seconds left
in the first half on a 2-yard touch-
down run.
Moore Haven finished with
444 total yards of offense in this
game.
With that being said, as im-
pressive as the Terriers win was,
it was against a first-year pro-
gram that had many players who
haven't had much football experi-


ence.
"Overall, we did real good in
the first half," Hall said.
"We try to come out with as
much passion as we can.
"Coach (Jason Bond) told us
to go hard and. make pancakes
on every play," Hall continued. "I
credit our offensive line because
without them, I wouldn't be able
to do what I did."
Hurricanes head coach David
Freed was impressed with Moore
Haven's play, noting Hall's agres-
siveness and speed shown on dis-
play throughout the first half.
"Moore Haven played very
physical, tough and disciplined,"
Freed said.


Pahokee wins easily in homecoming game


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators are preparing to take on the Okeechobee team tomorrow night.


Important notes for
Glades Day, Glades
Central games

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PAHOKEE "This is a black eye
for our team," said Blaze Thomp-
son, Pahokee's head coach, refer-
ring to a rash of penalties issued
in a Sept: 26 game.
It's safe to say that the referees
took center stage in the Pahokee
Blue Devils 34-10 victory against
Jupiter.
The state's top Class 2B team
looked somewhat uncomfort-
able after being flagged for two
penalties before the game even
started.
Pahokee was penalized for 30
yards before the kickoff, a rare
occurrence that happens to any
team.
The referees called a 15-yard
penalty on the Blue Devils for
unsportsmanlike conduct as the
players crossed the 45-yard line
during their warm-up session.
After two of Pahokee's coach-
es.disagreed with the referees on
the call, one of them was ejected
from the game.
It was not clear what the
heated exchange of words were,
but nonetheless, another 15-yard
penalty was issued to Pahokee.
That worked out in Jupiter's
favor, as the Blue Devils began the
game kicking off from' their own
12-yard line.
The Warriors wound up scor-
ing on their first drive as senior
Ethan Jones (15 rushes, 45 yards)
scored on a 1-yard run with 5:51
in the first quarter.
But that's the only touchdown
Pahokee allowed, with their of-
fense scoring the next 34 points
of the game.
Blue Devils sophomore quar-
terback Emmanuel Perez threw
the first touchdown pass of his
career, a 19-yard completion to
Dexter Holmes (two receptions,
29 yards).
That score came with 50.3 sec-
onds left in the first quarter.
From there on out, it was all
Pahokee as Vincent Smith (16
rushes, 156 yards) scored his first
touchdown of the game, a 5-yard
run.
That score, which came with


6:45 left in the second quarter, put
Pahokee up 13-7.
The touchdown drive was set
up by a fumble recovery from
Doral Willis earlier in the quarter.
Brandin Hawthorne was-cred-
ited with the forced fumble on.
Jupiter.
Nu'Keese Richardson (8-for-
13, 161 yards and two touch-
downs) threw an 80-yard score to
De'Joshua Johnson with 4:33 left
in the half.
The second half, which began
with Pahokee leading 21-7, was
highlighted by a 40-yard score by
Smith with 7:27 left in the third.
The Michigan-bound running
back would have had a third rush-
ing touchdown later in the second
half, a 73-yard run:
But that was called back due
to the referees ruling that a Paho-
kee player committed a holding
penalty.
Though the infraction cost
Pahokee 10 yards, it still didn't
stop them from scoring again
as Richardson heaved a 31-yard
touchdown pass to Johnson (five
catches, 132 yards) with 5:30 left
in the game.
With less than three minutes
to go in the fourth, Pahokee
linebacker Norman Griffith was
flagged for unsportsmanlike con-
duct, which led to his ejection
from the game.
The referees ruled that Griffith
blocked a Jupiter player out of
bounds before the whistled blow-
ed on a Warriors punt play.
According to high school rules,
if a player is flagged for unsports-
manlike conduct twice in one
game, then he is automatically
ejected.
Griffith, who would have been
suspended for Pahokee's next two
games, was regrettably shot and
killed just hours after the home-
coming game in Belle Glade. -
The game ended in a 37-yard
field goal by Jupiter kicker Doug
Parkley.
"There were some strange
things that occurred in this game,"
said Jupiter head coach'Charlie
Persson. "We've been shooting
ourselves in the foot with the pen-
alties we had.
"I'm proud of how our kids
stepped up, but you can't come
to Pahokee starting two freshmen
and seven sophomores,".he con-
tinued.


"Pahokee's players are very
relaxed and they know how to
overcome penalties, but we're
not good enough to do that."
Surprisingly, Jupiter had more
penalties than Pahokee (11-10)
but the Blue Devils racked up
133 yards, compared to 82 for the
Warriors.
Neither coach commented on
the conduct on the referees for
the game.
According to FHSAA rules, if
any .coach who talks negatively
about referees is subject to a
$1,000 fine.
Pahokee (4-0) travels to Byrnes
in what could be the most impor-
tant game in the history of this
storied program.
"We're gonna have to tackle
better against Byrnes if we want
to win," Thompson said.
"If we continue to play aggres-
sive on offense and defense, then
we can come out with a win, but
we must cut back on our mental
mistakes."
The Blue Devils, who are at
their best when facing adversity,
will put up a tough fight against
the nation's top-ranked team, ac-
cording to USA Today.
The loss of Griffith should en-
able Pahokee to play with a sense
of urgency that they've always
had, but on a higher level than


ever before.
Fans should not be surprised
if Pahokee leaves Byrnes With an
upset victory.
Pahokee, which finished last
season as USA Today's No. 6 team
in the nation, will likely be nation-
ally-ranked again with a win.
The game will be televised at
7:30 p.m. on the ESPNU network
and can be seen on the web at
espn360.com.
Notices for this week's
Glades Day, Glades
Central games
Glades Day, who is coming off
a bye week, will be traveling to
Okeechobee tomorrow night in a
gut-check contest for them.
The Gators (2-1) must over-
come the Brahmans running
game, led by senior Lonnie Pry-
or.
The Okeechobee running back
almost single-handedly beat them
last year, rushing for 302 yards in
a 26-3 victory on Sept. 28, 2007 in
Belle Glade.
If Glades Day does that, then
they should win this game and
go 3-1.
As for Glades Central (3-0),
they will be playing Dwyer on Sat-
urday, Oct. 4 at Palm Beach Cen-
tral High School.
It was determined by. the
School District of Palm .Beach
County that the Raiders home-.
coming game would not be
played in Belle Glade due to the
latest rash of shootings in the
area.
Last season, the Raiders won
a close game against the Panthers
by a score of 14-7.,
But the outcome looks to be
somewhat different, as Glades
Central, the Associated Press No.
1 team in Class 3A, should win
this time by a larger margin, even
though Dwyer (3-0) is considered
the state's No. 2 team in Class 4A,
according toAP.
The game between two of
Palm Beach County's top teams
will begin at 10:30 a.m. at the
neutral site.
Staff Writer Nai Tobias can be
reached at ntoblas@newszap.com.


"They showed a total team ef-
fort, I hope they make the playoffs
because they deserve to."
The Terriers (3-0) go on the
road today to play Boca Raton
Christian in their quest to remain
undefeated before district play
begins next Friday night'against


St. John Neumann.
Moore Haven, who is in Dis-
trict 6-Class 1A, must win at least
two of its three district games to
make the playoffs for the first time
since 2003.

CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!
Dear Friends,
I would like to thank the Board of.County
Commissioners for holding the 2008 county
village rate at 6.5 at last week's meeting to
give some tax relief to our taxpayers. Our
Property Appraiser was at that meeting urg-
ing the commissioners to reduce the tax rate.
My question is, where was she when we
needed answers last year? The citizens of
Hendry County attended a commission meet-
ing last year looking for answers. She was
invited to explain and defend the property val-
ues. There was no representation from her or
her office. Then again, it wasn't an election year with opposition.
I'd like to thank you again for supporting me in. the Primary Election. I
look forward to meeting and making new friends while' campaigning before
the General Election. I have received a lot of phone calls and e-mails and
I was happy to respond and explain to youx satisfaction.
Thank youandGodBless,
Your Friend

Clewiston Museum Receives Grant for Scholar Speakers Series


The Clewiston Museum has
been awarded a Florida Humani-
ties Council Partnership Grant to
help underwrite the upcoming
season's series of Humanities
Scholar Presentations. The $3,000
matching grant is also made pos-
sible by funding from the National
Endowment for the Humanities.
Museum Curator Butch Wilson
indicated his appreciation saying,
"This grant helps us to bring ex-
cellent programs for our support-
ers and for the community. Last
year, all of our similar presenta-
tions resulted in a full house. We
also appreciate the support from
Glades Media and WAFC-FM
for their publicity support that is
credited towards our grant match


requirements."
This year's series will include
five presentations. Attendance is
free but reservations are required
due to limited seating capacity.
Contact the Museum at 983-2870
to make reservations. After each
program, the presenting scholar
will be available to talk with at-
tendees and most will have mate-
rial about their presentation avail-
able for sale and personalization.
Refreshments will also be provid-
ed as will be the opportunity for
attendees to view the Museum's
newly added fossil exhibits.
The dates and programs se-
lected for this season's series are
as follow:
Thursday, Oct. 23: John Mo-


ran-Journal of Light. Moran is one
of Florida's most noted photog-
raphers who captures the heart
and soul of Florida through land-
scape, nature and wildlife images.
His collection features items from
the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic
Ocean with an emphasis on Flor-
ida waters and the creatures that

EOC
Hendry County has been ap-
proved for a $177,707 grant under
the COPS Technology Program.


The money will be used for com-
munications equipment for the
new Emergency Operations Cen-
ter to be built west of LaBelle, just
off SR 80 at Congen Drive.
The county is waiting for ap-
proval from the Department of
Interior to go forward with the
project. According to Director of
Grants and Special Projects Ron
Zimmerly, the Department of In-
terior must sign off on the project
because Dol money was used in
the original purchase of the site
from the Berry family.
Once ground has been broken,
Matthews Construction Company


has promised it will be completed
in eight months. The total cost
should be about $4.7 million.

Pioneer Off Highway
Park
The Pibneer Off Highway Vehi-
cle (OHV) Park is going forward.
Hendry County received some
$590,000 in Recreational Trails
grant money to develop the park.
However, those funds may not be
used for some amenities, such
as parking, an ADA approved re-
stroom and picnic area. So, the
county is seeking $200,000 in


grant monies from Florida Rec-
reation Development Assistance
Program (FRDAP) to help with
those purposes. No match is re-
quired for this grant.
The Pioneer OHV Park will be
located at the 400-acre site of the
old landfill in Pioneer Plantation
off Christopher Lane.

Recreation
The county will apply for a
Tony Hawk Foundation grant of
$15,000 to construct a skatepark.
A $15,000 match would be re-
quired. The facility will be located


at the new soccer park off Jaycee-
Lions Blvd.

background. They are individu-
als which you would probably
never suspect. We have teach-
ers, government officials, people
who it seems put themselves in
the place where they have access
to children. It's a big step in their
psyche, different phases they go
through. A lot of things are very
graphic, very disturbing. (Q: How
did you develop this interest in
targeting crimes against chil-
dren?) There was one instance in
particular in Jacksonville that kind
of hit the nail home, so to speak.
There was a child abuse case with
a very, very young infant that was
left with a boyfriend of the baby's
mother and, it was just a very
graphic, abusive case of neglect.
I was able to work that case, get
into his and get a confession out
of him. Get the kid out of there
and get him put away. From that
point on, I knew that protecting
children and getting these preda-
tors, offenders and exploiters off
the streets was my calling.

Q: Why does a crime against a
child take on deeper significance
for you?
A: It's heinous. They are inno-
cent. They don't know any better.
Children nowadays are subjected
to so much more violence and
things of that nature, but they still
retain that innocence. When they
are exploited, that innocence is
lost and it's lost forever. You can't
give them that back. You can't
give them their childhood back.
It's gone.

Q: Why do you do what you
do?
A: I love law enforcement. I
love being able to get out there
and serve the people. I like getting
out there and being that driving
force, maybe it's old-fashioned,
maybe it's cliche, but there's a
lot of good and evil in this world.
Unfortunately, things aren't black
and white. There's gotta be a
midline, there's gotta be that grey
line and I try to put myself there
to help when people need it and
also get out there and try to stop
these crimes and deter them. Not
just have to go out and reactively
deal with the grieving, but get out
there and constantly hammer the
streets and stop it before it starts.
This is my job, I couldn't do any-
thing else. There's always some-
thing different.


sociated with being treated for the
disease. Money is allocated to-
ward providing transportation to
patients, prosthetics, wigs, care,
and more.
The launch event for this year's
activities will be held on Tuesday,
at First Baptist Church in Clewis-
ton at 5:30 p.m. That's when the
committee will be meeting for the
first time to prepare for the March
14 event.
The community is invited to
participate, and businesses are
strongly encouraged to begin
building their teams.


Q: Can you describe yourself?
A: Depends on who I'm
around. I'm introverted around
people I don't know very well, or
large groups. I'm quick to warm
up, though. Kind of an odd thing,
being in law enforcement, but
I try to separate home life from
work life; when I put the uniform
on, it's a different game face. At
home, I try to bring humor and
laughter in everything.

Q: What scares you?
A: I hate reptiles, I hate snakes.
Being out here in Hendry Coun-
ty is a whole different animal. If
they call me out for an alliga-
tor call, I'm going to stay in my
car. (Q: And what about the fear
that you could get hurt on the
job?) There's always that fear.
You can't lose that fear. The fear
is what keeps you in check. Too
many law enforcement officers
in my opinion develop that com-
placency. Maybe that small-town
mentality, as well. "I've dealt with
this person 40 times. They've nev-
er done anything to me before."
That's, unfortunately, when bad
things happen. I thrive on that
fear. You've got to have that. It's
what keeps you alive and keeps
you focused -- avoiding that tun-
nel vision. Thinking that there's
no such thing as a routine day.
(Q: Has there been a moment on
the job when you've truly been
scared?) Hundreds. Hundreds.
You've got that sixth sense. The
hair stands up on the back of your
neck. Anything that's involving
firearms and people who have
a propensity for violence. This is
true especially after I've just gone
to a law enforcement officer's
funeral. Unfortunately there have
been a lot of on-duty deaths in
South Florida and I try to attend
every single one of their funer-
als. I remember one time I went
to the Broward deputy funeral a
while back and then came back
and two more shifts I had a traffic
stop where there were a few fire-
arms involved. Anytime you got to
chase somebody, when you have
to deal with guns, it's terrifying.

Q: What is your favorite song?
A: The band Coconut Records,
it's called "West Coast." It's got
a good beat and it's just one of
those songs that you can kind of
lose yourself in.

Q: What irks you?
A: Disrespect. Unfortunately,
no one respects law enforcement
anymore, unless you need us. I
just hate that blatant disrespect.
My dad's a police officer. Com-


"The tsunami is real calm," said
Mr. McClusky. "Now's the time to
get the footwork done, establish
teams, establish fundraisers.
"Last year, the town knew
what Relay was. I really felt that.
I think we educated the town last
year and that's what we want to
continue."

ing up in the 70s, 80s even, it was
"Yes, officer" now there's no re-
spect. Unfortunately "yes, sirs"
are few and far between. Even
just to anybody else, blatant im-
politeness or rudeness.
Q: What is the memory you
hold dearest to you?
A: Definitely good. The first
time I shot archery. I used to do
shooting with my dad. We were
out on a shoot and they had differ-
ent animals set up. They had this
trick shot -- it was this bear that
was quite a few hundred yards
away. All these big guys with their
bows with fancy stuff, they had to
try to hit it. It was too far out to
even use your sights, but you had
to try. My dad said, "You should
go up there and try." I was a little
kid, eight or nine, I think. I'm like,
"I got this little plinker bow-and-
arrow, there's no way." I went up
there and he said, "Just aim real
high." Nobody was hitting this
thing. I went up there and aimed
it at the sky. I closed my eyes and
let go. It hit. It soared all the way
up, with this tiny little children's
bow-and-arrow, stuck right in the
chest. I actually won a trophy for
that.
