Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- In what has
been the largest pronouncement
yet in the wake of the U.S. Sug-

County, along with the Hilliard
family, made public their plans to

Four legs and a tail may not
be standard equipment on a
deputy, but they can be big as-
sets in many law enforcement
situations.
Halo, the newest canine
deputy with the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, is joining forc-.
es with Deputy Rick Perian.
The three-year-old, 70-pound
Shepherd-Belgian Malouit mix
was donated to the HCSO in
mid-September. He came from
Franklin County, where Sheriff
Michael Mock is dissolving his
canine unit.
Retired from the Marine
Corps, with 17 years in Special
Forces, Deputy Perian was a
canine handler in Iraq, where
his team cleared buildings and
conducted sweeps in Fallujah.
After retiring from the mili-
tary, he went into law enforce-

ambitious inland pdrt project.
A closely studied and scruti-
nized idea, the inland port proj-
ect, according to some analyses,
could serve as a major boon to
the area; with the capacity to pro-
duce tens of thousands of jobs
and serve as a surge to the lo-
cal economy through increased
commercial activity.
Major thoroughfares of com-
merce could potentially intersect
in Hendry County and the area
could become an attractive op-
tion for future business and in-


ment in Ouachita Parish, Loui-
siana, for three years, serving
as a canine officer there for a
year.
He has been with Hendry
County Sheriff's Office since
February 2005.
Deputy Perian said canine
teams require 400 hours of
training to become certified in
law enforcement. Halo com-
pleted his training in Franklin
County. However, since Halo
and Deputy Perian are a new
team, they are required to re-
certify with another 400 hours.
The duo trains in Lee County
and will be certified to National
Police Canine Association stan-
dards.
Halo is cross trained for pa-
trol work, search and rescue,
narcotics detection, tracking,
finding firearms and other du-
ties. He will also participate in
school demonstrations and pe-


are invited to join the NAMC
(Sept. and May), Christmas
Bird Count (Jan. 3), and the
Backyard Bird Count (Feb.

dustry.
"I think that's a great idea,"
said Janet Taylor, who sits on the
board of commissioners. "When
we're uncertain what our future
might be, it's the greatest thing
that we could be doing right
now. We all have to be united on
this front."
Vince Cautero, the county's
planning and zoning director,
said he feels the Hilliard property
has as good a chance as any to
be selected. At a little over 6,100
acres, the property has a few key


riodic searches and also regular
patrol work.
The pair is working hard to
become a real team some-
thing that takes a lot of time
and effort both in the training
mode and at home.
Like most police canine
dogs, Halo is part of the fam-
ily at home with his handler's
family. Sharing their work and
their free time helps build a
strong bond between handler
and canine. It is what enables
them to become a unit and re-
spond to each other's subtlest
communications.
At home or when duty does
not call, Halo is as playful as
any dog; but make no mistake
- he knows when it's work time
and at a word from Deputy Pe-
rian he will instantaneously be-
come all business.
Halo and Deputy Perian will
be on patrol in a couple weeks,

qualities officials hope will get
the attention of the agencies re-
sponsible for the site selection.
The central location means
that it is at a logical crossroads
between other South Florida
ports. With U.S. 27 feeding di-
rectly off it, the Hilliard site also
benefits from existing infrastruc-
ture and access to a major road-
way that cuts across the state.
Lastly, county officials said, the
land has very few environmen-
tal concerns that would impede
progress on the project.


The meeting at John Boy Au-
ditorium was a key event in sell-
ing the idea.
"The purpose of Thursday's
meeting was to state our case
publicly, gather as much support
as we can," said Mr. Cautero.
County officials are hoping
to continue that outreach effort,
canvassing state officials and
others to support the plan, while
lobbyists push to sell the sale.

Suspects charged
with multiple drug
charges
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Following
months-long investigations
involving drug purchases by
undercover deputies, and an
inquiry into known drug tra-
fickers, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office placed 16 indi-
viduals in jail.
Deputies took to the streets
with warrants for the arrest of
the suspects, conducting search


after search in the 8-hour-long
operation spanning the entire
county last Friday.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee calls it a
success.
"It's always good to get that
many people arrested, plus
more that we're waiting on,"
the sheriff said.
According to information
provided by the sheriff's of-
fice, the investigations began
in April. Friday night's arrests
were the conclusion of the
lengthy detective work. .....

Glades Central's Alanda Shaw had to punt often in their close game against Dwyer, a 6-0 win
in four overtimes.


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Central faithful made the trek to Palm Beach Central High School in Wellington
on a soggy Saturday morning. Donned in umbrellas, nobody left the game until it ended.


Pahokee and Glades
Day lose, but Moore
Haven wins big

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WELLINGTON The heavy
rains, combined with slick and
wet field conditions, played a key
role in the Glades Central-Dwyer
game.
But in the Oct. 4 contest, it was
a set of clutch plays that deter-
mined the outcome.
The Raiders 6-0 win over the
Panthers, a four-overtime thriller,
came on a touchdown pass and a
fumble recovery, which made the
difference.
The game-winning play on of-
fefse came on a 17-yard touch-
down pass to senior wideout
James West, courtesy of junior
quarterback Leron 'L.J.' Thomas.
That was the only score of the
game.
"The way the ball came to me,
I.saw the end zone right away,"
West said of the game winning
play.
West ran a slant on that play,
with no Dwyer defender able to
cover him in the middle of the
field.
"L.J. threw a wild pass toward
the middle and when I caught it,
a defender tried to tackle me from
i- below," he continued.
'"I broke the tackle, moved.mn
legs and just went into the end
zone."
After Thomas was ruled down
on his knee in an attempt to make
a two-point conversion, Dwyer
got the ball back.
Raiders defensive end Artavi-
ous Dowdell sealed the deal with
a fumble recovery on Dwyer's
Matt Elam, who was trapped
from the line of scrimmage on a
first down play from the 10 yard
line.
"I think Dowdell won the
game for us before it was even
over," West said of his teammate,
who also had two sacks against
Dwyer.
"Dowdell always seemed to
come through when it mattered
the most."
Missed opportunities proved
to be Dwyer's undoing, as they
learned that teams like Glades
Central know how to capitalize
on it.
In the first overtime, Glades
Central made a fourth-down goal
line stand as Panthers senior Brad-
ley Wallace (20 carries, 47 yards;
3-for-8 passing, 49 yards), could
not score from the 1-yard line.
When the Raiders got the ball
back, sophomore Alanda Shaw
tried a 25-yard game winning field
goal on fourth down.
However, the game would go
into a second overtime after the
kick sailed wide left.
Two fumbled snaps by Glades
Central, plus an incomplete pass
from Thomas to sophomore Kel-
vin Benjamin, gave Dwyer yet an-
other opportunity.
When the Panthers got the ball
back, it looked like they were go-
ing to win the game.
But on fourth down, Glades
Central junior Greg Dent blocked
a 30-yard field goal attempt from
Dwyer.
The clutch play sent the game
into its third overtime.
The Raiders defense made yet
another clutch fourth-down stop
after Wallace was stopped just
short of the goal line.
The' play was a 14-yard run by
Wallace, who was stopped at the
I-yard line by a host of swarming
Raiders defenders.
That was Dwyer's final oppor-
tunity to win before Glades Cen-
tral took over.
The Panthers, who fell from
No. 2 to No. 4 in this week's As-
sociated Press Class 4A poll, had
two chances to score, in regula-
tion.
With 1:11 left in the first half,
Dent recovered a Panthers fumble
from the Raiders 10 yard line.
The key fumble came on a


third-and-two play, with Dwyer
seemingly on its way to opening
up the scoreboard.
In the fourth quarter, Elam's
22-yard run placed Dwyer at
Glades Central's 25 yard line with
just 5:40 left in regulation.
After a 13-yard run by Wal-
lace on a third-down play, Dwyer
made it to the Raiders 12-yard line
later in the quarter.
Dwyer (3-1) reached Glades
Central's 4 yard line after Wallace
made an 8-yard run with 4:03 left
in regulation. It set up a 21-yard
field goal attempt for Dwyer.
With 3:17 left in the quarter,
Dwyer attempted to fake the field
goal after a botched snap.
However, Glades Central's
special teams made a key stop as
a Dwyer pass fell incomplete.
The game went into overtime
after both teams failed to move
the ball in the air,
Glades Central gained only 85
total yards throughout the game,
while Dwyer recorded 215 yards
(161 rushing, 54 passing).
Glades Central (5-0; No. 1 in
AP's Class 3A poll) had 12 fum-
bles, three more than Dwyer.
Each team lost three fumbles,
but Dwyer's turnovers were more
costly.
Glades Central's homecoming
game against Dwyer, which was
scheduled to be played on Oct.
3 in Belle Glade, was moved to
Palm Beach Central High School,
'for safety reasons.
Byrnes (S.C.) 38, Pahokee
12: It proved to be tough going
for the Pahokee Blue Devils in
their nationally televised game,
which was aired Oct. 3 on the ES-
PNU network.
As seen during the telecast,
the team received an outpour of
support from the Byrnes football
family, highlighted by a special
tribute to Norman Griffith, who
was tragically shot and killed on
Sept. 27.
However, the Pahokee players
were not in the game mentally,
which, in part, proved to be the
difference..
The Blue Devils (4-1; No. 1 in
the AP's Class 2B poll) had trou-
ble stopping Byrnes junior run-
ning back Marcus Lattimore, who
had 27 rushes for 164 yards and a
touchdown.
In total, a host of missed tack-
les by the Pahokee defense played
a role in Byrnes gaining 211 total
rush yards and four touchdowns.
The pass defense from the
Blue Devils fared better, limiting
junior quarterback Chas Dodd


to 122 yards on 12-for-26 passing
and an interception.
Pahokee's De'Joshua Johnson
(two receptions, 18 yards) caught
his first interception of the season
in the big game.
Down 14-0 in the second quar-
ter, Nu'Keese Richardson (10-for-
29, 189 yards, one touchdown,
two interceptions) kept Pahokee
in the game.
It was highlighted by a 77-yard
touchdown pass to Dexter Hol-
mes, which cut the lead down to
14-6.
Unfortunately for Pahokee, at
least two touchdowns were left
on the field in the first half after
failing to score from the red-
zone.
In the second half, Byrnes
pulled away with a 2-yard touch-
down run from Lattimore, fol-
lowed by a Richardson intercep-
tion being returned for a 42-yard
touchdown.
Pahokee's Dennis Hall (five
receptions, 91 yards) caught a
fourth-quarter touchdown from
Vincent Smith, which accounted
for their other score.
Smith was limited to 52 rush-
ing yards on 29 carries, a season
low to date.
In all fairness, this game was
played against the nation's top-
ranked team, according to USA
Today.
Also, it was clear that Paho-
kee missed the presence of Grif-
fith, who's widely 'considered the
heart and soul of their defense.


Though Pahokee didn't win
this game, in a sense, they scored
a major victory just by honoring
the request of Griffith's family to
play.
Okeechobee 49, Glades
Day 41: The Gators (2-2; No. 5 in
AP's Class 1A poll) lost this game
simply because they could not
stop Lonnie Pryor.
The Florida State commit ran
for 356 yards and five touch-
downs against Glades Day's run
defense.
That makes it two games in
a row a running back rushed for
more than 350 yards.
In Glades Day's last game, a
30-24 loss to Clewiston on Sept.
19, senior Darris Hughes had a
career day, rushing for 352 yards
and three touchdowns.
What kept the Gators in the
game was its own potent rushing
attack.
Kelvin Taylor, the son of NFL
running back Fred Taylor, had his
fourth consecutive 100-yard rush-
ing game.
He ran for 112 and scored
three touchdowns to keep them
close.
But the star of Glades Day's of-
fense in their high scoring game
was Deandre Jackson.
The senior, who is a Suncoast
transfer, led all Glades Day rush-
ers with 178 yards, while adding
57 receiving yards on five recep-
tions.
Bo Schlecter, the Gators quar-
terback, was 11-for-19 with 230

Quarterback Dalton Britt (11-
for-18 passing, 171 yards, two
touchdowns, one interception)
threw both scores to Xavier Fagan
(seven receptions, 137 yards) in
this game.
Now that Moore Haven is 4-0
heading into district play, they
have garnered some respect from
the Associated Press.
Though the Terriers are not
ranked in the top five of the Class
1A poll, they did receive 12 votes.
If the AP gave rankings from
1-10 in Class 1A, Moore Haven
would be No. 9 this week, just
ahead of American Heritage-
Delray, last year's Class 1A state
'champion.

Tomorrow's games
All teams will be in district play
this week, with Moore Haven
needing to win their game the
most.
Only two teams in each district
make the playoffs, which means
if any team loses more than one
district game, they could be in
trouble.
SMoore Haven plays at home
against St. John Neumann, who
qualified for last year's Class 1A
playoffs.
Glades Day hosts their home-
coming game against Evangelical
Christian at Gator Field.
Pahokee will play on the road
against Melbourne Central Catho-
lic, while Glades Central will be
traveling to Cardinal Gibbons.
Next week, Pahokee and
Glades Central have an open
date.

Tailback Darris Hughes sets sails on a fourth quarter 68-yard run.


By Jeff Barwick
Special to the Clewiston News
The Tigers rebounded after
their disappointing loss the pre-
vious week to Glades Central as
they outclassed the favored Stal-
lions.
While American Heritag6 con-
trolled the game clock and had
64 offensive snaps against only
30 for the Tigers, when it was all
said and done the Tigers brought
home an impressive 26-17 vic-


drive as he dove for the final yard.
Isandro Marquez drilled the point
after to put the Tigers up, 7-0.
The Stallions then marched 78
yards on 20 plays and used almost
10 minutes off the clock, scoring
with 10:31 remaining in the half.
Quarterback Billy Strode ran
the final yard and Justin Haig add-
ed the extra point.
After an exchange of punts,
the Tigers moved 84 yards in 4
runs by Harris.

tory.
When Clewiston had the ball,
they wasted little time in chomp-
ing up yards with tailback Darris
Hughes running through holes
opened by great offensive line
blocking.
Hughes finished the night
with 207 yards on 13 carries and
scored twice.
The Tigers got an early break
when the Stallions mishandled
the opening kickoff and Hughes
pounced on the ball at the Ameri-
can Heritage 30.


The biggest chunks came pn a
38 yard run and 25 yard scamper
for the touchdown with only 45
seconds remaining.
The extra point attempt was
foiled by a snap, problem with
Harris being stopped as he at-
tempted to convert on a run.
The Tiger defense gave up a
cheap touchdown on American
Heritage's first possession of the
second half on a blowp coverage
play.
Strode hit uncovered wide-
out Letron Harrell who raced 83
yards.


Haig's point after was good
and the Tigers were trailing, 14-
13.
After another exchange of pos-
sessions, Clewiston got the ball
on their 37 with 33 seconds left
in the third. Marquez hit flanker
Jamarcus Smith in the flats and
he slipped up the sidelines for a
27-yard gain.
The Tigers then slipped Smith
into the deep snap position and
he rolled around the left side for
another 24 yards.
On the first play of the final pe-
riod, Marquez hit fullback Leon-
ard Newton in the end zone cor-
ner for a 12-yard touchdown. The
Tigers attempted a 2-point pass
conversion but it was incomplete
and Clewiston was nursing a 19-
14 lead.
The Tiger defense gave up one
first down on the Stallion's follow-
ing possession and then forced a
punt.
Haig pinned the ball at the Ti-
ger 13. After an incidental face
mask penalty against American
Heritage, Newtog lost a handoff
and Greg Bryant recovered for the
Stallions.
The Tiger defense, which had
been bending but not breaking
most of the night, then held them
on downs and forced a 31 yard
field goal by Ilnaig narrowing the
gap to 19-17.
Haig put the kickoff through
the.end zone for a touchback and
the Tigers put the ball in play at
the 20 with 5:58 left in the con-
test.
On the first snap, Hughes
broke loose up the middle and
raced 68 yards to the Stallion 12.
The Tigers wasted no time as
Hughes then covered the last 12
yards untouched, followed by
Marquez's extra point to finish the
game's scoring.
The Stallions mounted a drive
against a prevent Tiger defense'
and drove down the field mak-
ing two desperation fourth down
conversions.
They had first and goal from
the 8 yard line but after two in-


complete passes and a six-yard
run, the defense stuffed Strode on
a quarterback option on fourth
down from the two-yard line.
The Tigers then ran out the game
clock and moved their record to
3-2.
Clewiston's defense put forth
a very stout effort with many of
the offensive starters also seeing
extensive time on the other side
of the ball.
Defensive end Adam Trevino
was all over the field as he carded
10 tackles, an assist, a quarter-
back sack for a 12 yard loss and a
run sack. Linebacker Fred Wash-
ington also was key as he had 9
tackles, an assist and a run sack.
Linebacker Leonard Newton
also came up with a fumble re-
covery late in the third period to
thwart a long Stallion drive.
On the season, Harris reached
the 1,000 yard mark rushing and
has an impressive 11-yard av-
erage.
After the ganm Hughes
said, "Our offense talked
about redeeming ourselves af-
ter Glades Central. The o-line
did the job and we took it to
them tonight."
Tiger Coach Joe Roth was
full of praise for the team say-
ing, "This was a big bounce
back performance against a,
very good football team. We
are right where we need to be
as we head into district play."
The Tigers kick off their

CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!
Dear Friends,
As we approach the General Election on
November 4th, we all have decisions to make
- who do we want running our government?
As we look into the future, we see troubling
times with declining values and the sale of US
Sugar Corp. We will need someone to work
for us. There will be a lot of changes and eco-
nomic factors that will affect our values.
Some of these factors already exist and are
not yet recognized by the current Property
Appraiser I will be proactive working within
our communities and in cooperation with
other elected officials. With your support, I'll be your working Property
Appraiser.

Remember, the Hendry County Property Appraiser's office belongs to you
and CHANGE BEGINS AT THE TOP!

The History of Florida's Indians


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Lofty clouds basking in soft
shades of orange and pink filled
the afternoon sky. Soft shafts of
light passing through the clouds
penetrated the leafy forest cano-
py below. Forest shadows, nour-
ished by the light, cast long dark
images across the round thatched
huts that stood inconspicuously
in the small forest 'clearing.
A cooking fire, glowing red in
the afternoon shadows, illuminat-
ed the surrounding huts. Droplets
of fat, falling from the roasting
venison, gave birth to gray wisps
of smoke that drifted ghostlike
through the village, leaving invis-
ible trails of tantalizing aromas.
This scene was repeated
countless times when the hunting
groups in Florida evolved to food
gathers and established villages in
the Florida wilds. Today we are
going to take "A Walk in The Past"
and visit these ancient Floridians.
The first Paleo Indians migrat-
ed into Florida when the Ice Age
was coming to a close approxi-
mately 11,000 to 12,000 years
ago. The total landmass of Florida
was much larger during that pe-
riod, due to the low sea levels cre-
ated by the Ice Age. A wide savan-
nah extended westward 60 to 100
miles along the entire west coast
of present Florida.
Low sea levels created a much
drier Florida. Many of the present-
day rivers and lakes didn't exist.


The main sources of water for the
animals and Paleo Indians came
from deep springs and surface
water that accumulated in lime-
stone catchment basins, forming
water holes and shallow lakes.
Rainfall was less than today, so
some of the water holes and lakes
were temporal, replenishing only
when the rains came.
Scrub vegetation, grassy prai-
ries and savannahs covered much
of the arid peninsula. Forest of
oaks and hickory existed in places
where water could be found and
coastal marshes formed along the.
coast.
Many of the large mammals
that are extinct today lived and
flourished when the Paleo Indi-
ans first arrived in Florida. The
grasslands supported the horse,
bison, camel and mammoths. Gi-
ant land tortoises and armadillos
inhibited the drier areas, while
tapirs, ground sloths, and mast-
odons lived in the forest. Almost
all the large land mammals van-
ished between 12,000 B.C. and
11,000 B.C.
The Paleo Indians living then
and other Indians living thousands
of years later have left wonderful
artifacts behind. The artifacts have
helped archeologist create a writ-
ten record of their cultures. These
written records are sometimes
contested by various archeolo-
gists. Unfortunately, timelines and
cultural developments are includ-
ed in these debates. Time spans
and the cultural development of


Florida Indians aren't written in
stone and do vary. The cultural
periods and time spans listed be-
low are close, but do vary among
Florida archeologist.
*Early Archaic period envel-
ops 10,000 B.C. to 6,000 B.C. The
beginning of settled communi-
ties. The hunter-gatherers started
using a broader range of plants
and animal for food. Oak and
hardwood forestation state wide
because of increased rainfall.
*Middle Archaic period envel-
ops 5,000 B.C to 2,000 B.C. Sed-
entary populations increased us-
ing a broader variety of tools. Sea
levels reached present day levels.
*Late Archaic envelops 2000
B.C. to 1200 B.C. Indians started
making fiber tempered pottery.
The raised sea level created a wet-
ter environment, which increased
mixed forest of pine and cypress.
*Woodland period envelops
1,200 B.C. to 1,000 A.D. Old fiber
tempered pottery started evolving
with new designs. Communities
developed more complex politi-
cal and religious practices.
*Mississippian period envel-
ops 1,000 A.D. to 1600 A.D. Cul-
tures more complex with new
ideas from spreading northern
cultures. Corn, beans and squash
were grown in the panhandle
*Acculturative period envel-
ops 1600 A.D. to 1710 A.D. The
Europeans arrived, imposing
great changes on the Indian cul-
tures which ultimately wiped out
the Indian populations. *


There were once numerous In-
dian nations living in Florida with
diverse cultures. Unfortunately,
European contact starting in the
early 1500s brought total destruc-
tion to these nations. Listed are
some of the nations that were
recorded by European explorers,
clergymen and ship wreck survi-
vors.
*Apalachee nation Florida

*Timucan nation North Flor-
ida.

*Tocobaga nation Tampa
*Ais nation Ft. Pierce

Letter to the Editor


No endorsement
When Steve Whidden resigned from the Hendry County Sheriff
Office, I considered him a friend and wrote a letter of recommend,
tion.
He has now posted that letter on his campaign for sheriff's wel
site, which would make it appear that I am supporting him in his bi
for sheriff of Hendry County.
I e-mailed him requesting he remove the letter from his websit
however, he has chosen not to do so.
I do not think he has the qualifications to serve as the sheriff
Hendry County and I totally support Sheriff Ronnie Lee in his bid f(
re-election.

Green Cane Harvesting


Should the industry
cease burning for
'greener' alternative?

By Nina G. Wills
INI Florida
Green cane harvest is recog-
nized as a new environmentally-
friendly method of harvesting
sugarcane, but the possibility of
the Glades area sugarcane indus-
tries adopting the method any
time soon is unlikely.
"Green cane harvest looks
good on paper, but implementing
it in the Glades right now is just
not practical," Barbara Miedema,
Vice President of Public Affairs
and Communications of Sugar
Cane Growers Cooperative of
Florida, said.
Typically, sugarcane is burned
prior to harvest to remove loose
adhering leaves called cane trash,
which contains no sugar and is
of little economic value. Remov-
ing this trash makes both manual
and mechanical harvest easier.
Burning cane, though, produces
fall-out, smoke and ash that is
carried by the winds and depos-
ited on the ground, causing some
air pollution.
Green cane harvest is the
method of harvesting sugarcane
without burning. After a green
cane harvest, a trash blanket of
leaves remains on the field. In


certain regions, this trash blan-
ket helps reduce soil erosion and
adds organic matter to the soil
acting as a fertilizer. There is also
no fall-out and no risk of air pol-
lution.
"The sugarcane industry as a
whole is coming across increased
pressure to stop burning," said
Dr. Robert Gilbert, associate pro-
fessor of agronomy at University
of Florida's Everglades Research
and Education Center (EREC) in
Belle Glade.
He has studied green cane har-
vest for two years. In his research,
he has found that green cane
harvest will be most beneficial
to areas on sloping lands and in
dry climates. These are complete
opposites of the conditions in the
Glades.
Gilbert believes that green
cane systems are more likely to
be adopted by sand land growers
because these soils would ben-
efit from the added organic mat-
ter. His research shows that the
trash blanket does not have many
benefits for sugarcane grown on
muck since the soil is already rich
in nutrients.
Gary Crews, General Manager
of Sugar Cane Operations Florida
at A. Duda & Sons Inc., questions
how area farmers would deal
with the trash that is left after a
green cane harvest.
"I hate to even think about
going to green cut cane," Crews
said.


He has managed 25,000 acres
of sugarcane fields for over 30
years with Duda and knows that
certain varieties of sugarcane
cannot be harvested by the green
cane method.
When the trash matter is thick
on the ground, the amount of
sunlight the roots receive is re-
duced and plant growth is stifled.
If the sugarcane grows back at a
slower rate, production will drop.
Some varieties of sugarcane will
rot and never grow back, accord-
ing to Crews. Hauling the trash
blanket away would also be ex-
pensive and time consuming and
would slow down harvesting.
In January 2009, Dr. Gilbert
and his team will begin further
experiments with green cane
harvest in the Glades. Gilbert's
research will show if green cane
harvesting is even "economically
viable" for this region.
Until the green cane harvest
method is improved and shows
realistic benefits for the Glades
area sugar industries, the current
method of burning cane will con-
tinue to be preferred.
"I have always been care-
ful to tell the sugarcane growers
in Florida that I am not trying to
force them to adopt green cane
systems, rather trying to generate
sound scientific information on
what benefits and disadvantages
are associated with this system in
Florida," Dr. Gilbert said.
While some sugarcane indus-


tries will use the green cane har-
vest method this season, it will
not be by choice. When condi-
tions do not allow the industries
to obtain a burning permit from
the U.S. Division of Forestry, the
fields are green cane harvested.
If the area is experiencing a
drought or the wind direction
could potentially carry the fire
over roads or near homes, the
burnings are postponed. Farm-
ers must also take into account
where the fall-out will land.
"We don't just light a match
and set a field on fire, there are
guidelines that we must follow
before any fields are burned,"
Crews said.
Both Miedema and Crews be-
lieve that the sugarcane industries
are working towards more en-
vironmentally-friendly practices.
The Sugar Cane Co-op has 21 air
quality monitoring stations and
sends air quality reports to both
the federal and state environmen-
tal protection agencies and the
health department. Other indus-
tries must report their air quality
as well.
Sugarcane is the highest-value
row crop in Florida, where half
of the United States' sugarcane is
produced.
Approximately 445,000 acres
were harvested in 2001, worth
an estimated value of more than
$750 million, according to the
EREC.


Early screening critical in saving lives


By Glenda Wilson
October is 'National Breast
Cancer Awareness Month, and
Hendry Regional Medical Center
wants to remind you that early
detection is the best form of pro-
tection against breast cancer.
According to the American
Center Society, in the United
States, breast cancer is the most
common cancer among women
(other than skin cancer). An es-
timated 178,480 women in the
United States were found to have
had invasive breast cancer in
2007, and about 40,460 women
will die from the disease this year.
Currently, there are slightly over 2
million women living in the Unit-
ed States who have been treated


Sfor breast cancer.
The earlier breast cancer is
found, the better the chances are
that treatment will work. The goal
is to find cancers before they start
to cause symptoms. The size of a
breast cancer and how far it has
spread are the most important
factors in predicting the outlook
for the patient. Early detection
tests for breast cancer save many
thousands of lives each year. The
American Cancer Society recom-
mends that women who are 40
years old and older should have
mammogram screenings every
year and should continue to do
so for as long as they are in good
health.
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-


ter is hosting FREE Lunch and
Learn seminars to educate the
public about breast cancer. The
schedules are as follows:
Wednesday, Oct. 15 (noon to
1 p.m.) Hosted by Dr. Darayes
Mobed, General Surgeon to be
held in the hospital conference
room.
Wednesday, Oct. 15 ( noon to
1 p.m.) Hosted by Dr. Leonard
Carroll, Board-Certified. General
Surgeon- to be held in LaBelle at
the Hendry Regional Convenient
Care Center.
Thursday, Oct. 23 (noon to
1 p.m.) Hosted by Dr. Darayes
Mobed, General Surgeon to be
held in LaBelle at the Hendry Re-
gional Convenient Care Center.


The hospital is also providing
discounted digital mammogram
screenings during the month
of October. Some who register
may qualify for free mammo-
gram screenings through a grant
(provided by Lucy's Angels) and
a program called Project Detect
(provided by the American Can-
cer Society).
Women, take time out of your
busy schedule to protect your
health. Grab your mother, sister,
daughter or a friend and join Hen-
dry Regional Medical Center to
learn more about breast cancer.
Call 863-983-2735 to reserve your
seat for one of the FREE Lunch
and Learn seminars on breast
cancer.


Refresh your keyboarding skills the easy way


Diane Timmons
Okeechobee News
Are you a hunt and peck, two-
fingered typist? I have the web
site for you!
A student of mine wanted to
refresh his typing skills. After a
Google search, we found a web
site at www.powertyping.com
that is an online, free typing tutor.
My student had a typing class in
high school about 50 years ago
and hadn't touched a keyboard
since. A lot of us took typing in
high school. Does that sound like
you? Here's a chance to relearn
those typing skills. You will be
surprised how much comes back
to you.
This web site is set up with typ-


ing drills and games. On the home
page you will be confronted with
a choice of two kinds of typing
exercises: Qwerty and Dvorak.
Sounds like nonsense doesn't
it? Well most of us learned on a
Qwerty keyboard. Take a look at
your keyboard. On the left, just
above the home row, the labeled
keys spell out QWERTY!
So, the short answer is click on
the Qwerty lessons.
Your next screen is very intui-
tive to follow. There are little mes-
sages to guide you.
The first message asks you to
select a lesson. To the right you
will see lessons listed from one to
17. I suggest you click lesson one.
They are listed from easiest home


row keys, all the way to lesson 17
with the least used characters on
the keyboard.
Then the message asks you to
click the Start button at the bot-
tom of the screen.
Look at the graphic I have
included. As you can see on the
graphic, there is a screen with
letters in groupings of four sepa-
rated by a space.
You will need to click your cur-
sor into the white space at the
bottom of the screen and type the
letters shown at the top of the box
including spaces.
As you type, the interface
helps when you make an error
and gives you words-per-minute


feedback. When you hit an incor-
rect key a little message pops up
and tells you to type the letter you
missed. An underscore helps to
keep your place among the let-
ters you need to type. Click stop
when you are finished and go to
the next lesson.
Amazingly, the student I re-
ferred to rested his fingers on the
home row keys and typed those
keys in the first lesson with very
few errors. It seems the things
you learned back in high school
come back pretty fast. I hope this
is true for you.
I'll be back every Monday to
show you practical uses for your

A (Not so!) Modest reflection on current issue


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A minister colleague talked
about Church functions that
touch the vast majority of people
whether they are "active" or not.
He called them the "Hatch-
Match-Dispatch" functions of
ministry. The Church is involved
in baptisms for many at the time
children are born (or "hatched")
into the world.
The Church is also involved in
"matching" when people choose
to get married, many coming to
Churches to receive a blessing
and have a formal service.
"Dispatch" is also a Church
function where many share in
the send off to the life to come
through a service in a Church.
(Another minister keeps what
he calls his "F.B.O. List" That's his
list of inactive members who will
be around "For Burial Only!")
Their expectations are for the
Church to be involved in these
major events in their lives whether
or not they otherwise participate.
I am usually happy to accom-
modate people at these major
milestones whenever it is possi-
ble and share with them in those


special moments.
Governments likewise share in
these events; issuing birth certifi-
cates or death certificates or mar-
riage licenses.
The governmental functions
and Church functions occur al-
most simultaneously.
We get birth certificates from
the government and baptismal
certificates from the Church
where the special occasion took
place.
In many jurisdictions, a baptis-
mal record is of legal value and I
try to be very accurate in record-
ing information about a person's
name, date and place of birth,
parents, etc.
Likewise I record burials with
information about the deceased
and his age, known reasons, etc.
in the event that this information
will be needed again.
The government issues a death
certificate to assist in the civil mat-
ters surrounding the end of life.
The state functions about birth
and death are separate from the
Church functions denoting new
life or the departure from this life
as marked by Church services.
The two are separate and dis-
tinct. Each has its place for it's
citizens-members.


However, in the case of
"matching" there is a "Marriage
License" that is issued by the gov-
ernment. For many years now, I
have blessed marriages and the
state has first issued a "marriage
license."
Unlike other parts of the world
where governments offer a civil
service and then the marriage
that takes place at Church fol-
lows; they seem to be co-mingled
here.
As a result, people regard
themselves as "married" on the
basis of a civil ceremony which
may or may not reflect parts of
what marriage is understood to
be by many others.
People can be "married" by
a justice of the peace, a notary
public, or judge; all of whom are
concerned about the legalities of
the union; and may only coinci-
dentally have a concern about the
other dynamics and dimensions
of the joining together of two
people.
There are concerns about pre-
nuptual agreements and other le-
galities; a part of a union and with
some impact on "marriage" but
that are not the whole matter.
I asked one expert in civil law
about verbal contracts one day;


if verbal contracts are valid in the
eyes of the law. He assured me
that they were.
I also asked him if the latest
contract took place over earlier
contracts; like the "last will" as a
contract took priority of all those
that had been previously made.
I was deemed to be right again.
Then I asked about that place in
the marriage service where a per-
son commits themselves to the
other "With all that I have and all
that I am..." and would this take
priority over other, pre-nuptual
agreements between the couple.
He didn't like my question!
In fact, religious marriages
are different in nature than other
"marriages" and involve another
kind of commitment.
I believe that many of the rela-
tive issues surrounding marriage
are confused when two distinct
"matching" events are seen as the
same; they are not.
There are differences in pur-
poses and differences in under-
standings about what it is 'all
about.
The waters are muddied when
they are equated.
No such problems exist with
births-baptisms or deaths-burials
because the functions of the gov-

ernment and Church are separate
and distinct.
I'd like to see the government
go about the business of unions
and the Church go about the
business of marriage as is done in
other places and in the other key
areas that denote major events in
people's lives.
Maybe this is an area of "sepa-
ration of Church and state" that
needs further clarification and
might offer something to people
as they make major choices and
commitments for a major event
in life.
Marriages were performed for
centuries by Churches long, long
before "licenses to marry" were
required.


Today we have distinct func-
tions meeting distinct needs and
birth certificates and death cer-
tificates have a valid place in our
world; a separate place from the
religious one.
There is something very ap-
pealing to me about having the
same concept being true for
unions and marriages; each hav-
ing its place and the two being
separate.
It's something like comparing
the "left" to the, "north"; some-
times they are the same, some-
times a bit our of phase, but
sometimes radically different..
If the difference is important, it
should not be ignored. "

"incompetent law enforcement in exchange for your tax dollars." Ladies

It has all the ingredients ot a
true, wholesome love story. It
has a concerned father -- Abra-
ham -- who doesn't want his son
to marry "just any girl." It has a
handsome Romeo by the name
of Isaac and, and a beautiful Juliet
named Rebekah.
The cupid in the story is an el-
derly man named Eleazar. You'll
find all the details in chapter 24 of
the Book of Genesis. Let me tell it
to you briefly.
Father Abraham, the Bill Gates
of his day, called his chief servant,
Eleazar, to his side.
S"I have a serious mission to
send you on," Abraham said sol-
emnly to his trusted, old servant.
"What is it, my lord?" Eleazar
asked obediently.
"Well, it's about time my son'
Isaac found himself a wife."
"There are many beautiful girls
around here," answered Eleazar.
"Yes, but they are Canaanites,"
Abraham protested. "They do not
worship the true and living God."


sign and it was this: "Seeing there
will be many girls at the town
well, and I, as an old man will
not be able to determine who is
the most beautiful and the best
choice for Isaac, give me this sign:
May the right girl not only agree
to give me a drink of water, but
may she offer to draw water for
my camels, as well."
In expectation, Eleazar sat
himself at the town well. Sudden-
ly, he saw a most beautiful young
lady coming to draw water.
"May I have a drink of water
from your pitcher?" he asked.
"Yes, drink, my lord," she re-
plied. "And when your thirst is
satisfied, I'll draw water from the
well for your camels, too. How
many are there?"
"Ten camels,", he answered.
But she didn't complain.
When the last thirsty camel
had been given a drink, Eleazar
asked, "May I ask your name?"
"It's Rebekah," she replied


But there's more to the story.
This story is a beautiful picture
of the true-life drama that's going
on today. In-fact, I'm part of this
plot, aDd so are you, if you are a
Christian. God, like Abraham of
old, is seeking a bride for His son,
the Lord Jesus Christ. And the Fa-
ther will not be satisfied with any,
of the heavenly hosts to be that.
bride.
Rather, in his sovereignty, He
has chosen that the bride should
come from a far country -- the
country of earth, and because of
this, "God so loved the world."
He has sent the Holy Spirit --
like Eleazar of old -- who speaks
to hearts at the wells of life. At the
shop. At the store. In the home:
"Will you come and be the
bride of the Lord Jesus Christ?"
He asks. Some Rebekahs say,
"Yes."
Others stubbornly say, "No, I
will not go."
The Holy Spirit is asking, "Will

God for Republicans or Dems?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Even though I don't put bum-
per stickers on my truck or place
signs in my yard, I take my voting
responsibilities seriously. I listen,
try to understand, and then make
an'informed decision in my vot-
ing. It's not an easy task, and my
cynic side often has trouble be-
lieving all I am told.
I'm not naive enough to be-
lieve that just because a person
is of good character and beliefs
means that person will make a
good political leader, but I do be-
lieve that a good political leader
should have good moral charac-
ter and good moral beliefs. Being
a strong Christian would make
that even better.
Unfortunately, I've taken mea-
sure of what is being offered, and
I find a lot lacking. I find myself
once again turning to God to ask
Him to help guide me in my vot-
ing selections.
For the record, I'm a registered
Republican. My wife is a regis-
tered Democrat. We get informa-

tion, phone calls, and visits from
both parties. Listening to some of
them, you would think that they
were God's gift to whatever needs
I had.
So, the question arises, "Who
really has God on their side?"
Depending on.who you asked
of which political persuasion
would probably get you different
answers. Listening to the many
commercials and commentaries
by various politicians, I think both
the Republicans and the Demo-
crats would claim that God would
side with them.
Is God for Republicans or is
God for Democrats? We might
find the answer for that by turn-
ing to Joshua 5:13-14 in the
Bible: "Joshua looked up and
saw a man standing in front of
him with a drawn sword in his


hand. Joshua went up to him and
asked, "Are you for us or for our
enemies?" "Neither,". he replied,.
"but as commander of the army
of the LORD I have now come."
Here we have the leader of
God's army going out to scout
the nearest Canaanite stronghold,
finding another warrior already
on the scene. He asks the strang-
er, who turns out to be an angel,
whether he was on his side or the
opposition. The reply was nei-
ther. He was on the Lord's side.
The best question in all of these
debates is not to ask whether God
is on our side or on their side. The
best question to ask is whether or
not we are on God's side.
Our best hope for a future is to
follow God's direction and plan -
to do God's will in our name, not
our will in God's name.


SIt Must be Love.

It Must be Hospice.

provided me with the motivation to live
each day to the fullest. Life has become so
Such more meaningful every moment."

It is estimated that 13,430 Florida women will
be diagnosed with breast cancer this year.
When breast cancer is detected early and treated promptly, suffering and ultimately the loss"
of life can be significantly reduced. Mammography (an x-ray picture of the breast) is
the single most effective method to detect breast changes that may be cancer, long
before physical symptoms can be seen orfelt. This is why, in recognition of Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, Glades General Hospital is offering Mammograms for a
special discounted rate of $60 throughout the month of October.


For further information or to schedule
your mammogram please call, 561-996-6571, ext. 286

Candidate
Continued From Page 1
The 33-year-old Hendry Coun-
ty native decided to run for the
position of the Clerk of Circuit
Court to make a difference in this
community that she loves so very
much. She feels that it is essential
that our hard earned tax payer
dollars be protected and admin-
istered according to law first and
foremost along with policy and
procedures set out by the Florida
Statues and Constitution. She
feels that all citizens should be
treated equally and fairly and that
the office should be ran, and gov-
ernment as a whole, with a bold
understanding of not forgetting
who they work for, "you" the tax
payers of Hendry County. Govern-
ment needs to be run more effi-
ciently and innovatively to learn
to work with less to reduce the
tax burden of the citizens that are

now is a benefit to our commu-
nity," said Ms. Taylor. "The uncer-
iainlies on U.S. Sugar are just that
until we know the final buyout


already struggling in these hard
economic times. The Clerk of the
Court is not only the custodian of
the court records, recording re-
cords, and the Board of County
Commissioner records, but the
custodian of monies levied by the
board and the Chief Financial Of-
ficer of the county. The Clerk in
Hendry County is also in charge
of the IT (Information Systems)
department of the county. All of
these duties under the Clerk are
extremely important and affect
each and every citizen of the
county in one way or another.
Jennifer admits that most of
her experience at the Clerk's of-
fice is in finance. However, she
noted that the recording part of
the Clerk's position is a "process,"
adding that the Clerk's Office has
a good staff more than capable of
dealing with the everyday index-
ing, scanning and recording of
public documents. She said she is
strong in the IT area and is confi-
dent that she can manage all the


(specifics). Even if U.S. Sugar was
not leaving, we need to bring in-
dustry here."
There is one roadblock, how-
ever.
The other site under consid-
eration belongs to Florida Crys-
tals"- the sugar giant that reports
say is also in the running for the


Clerk's various departments.
iTo years ago, as Finance Of-
ficer at the Clerk's Office, Jennifer
said she argued for reducing the
millage rate to 6.5 and is very
conscious of the need to tighten
government spending in these
economic times. She is currently
the Budget Director for the county
commission.
Jennifer went to work for
Christine Pratt in March of 1999
as the Chief Financial Officer and
Chief Deputy Clerk at the Clerk of
Courts Office in Hendry County
where she served for over 8 '/2
years. During that time she man-
aged the Clerk of Court affairs
along with the Board of County
Commissioners. Not only was
she the Chief Deputy Clerk which
encompasses all aspects of the
Clerk's office, but the finance and
budget director both for the Clerk
of Courts and the Board of County
Commissioners.
Jennifer explains that in 2004,
Article V was implemented in the


purchase of U.S. Sugar's mill and
operation. The Fanjuls, the family
which owns the company, have
made their desire to be chosen
for the port project quite public.
The site -- at 3,500 acres about
half the size of the Hilliard prop-
erty -- has been seen as the most
logical choice for the Port of Palm


court system and changed the
way the court system was man-
aged substantially. Up until then
local governments were required
by law to fund the court systems.
When this implementation took
place it demanded that the court

Beach, the organization that ini-
tially spearheaded the planning
for the project. It is just south of
South Bay and about 20 miles
east of the Hilliard property. Both
sites share many of the same ad-
vantages.
Given that the locations are so
closely situated, it stands to rea-


Operations Conference to over-
see the Clerk's offices according
to this new law and report back
to them. With this, the budget
process as well as monthly, quar-
terly and annual performance
based reporting was required.
This allows the State to oversee
certain criteria in the office and
make sure it is being met prop-
erly such as timely filing of cases,
collection process on files, etc.. of
all case types. As the Chief Deputy
Clerk, Jennifer implemented this
process for Hendry County and
provided oversight for the process
as laws frequently changed for re-
porting. As Chief Financial Officer
she managed this process to en-
sure that adequate monies were
available and budgeted properly
in order for the court system to
meet these benchmarks that the
State had required.
Jennifer feels that it is as im-
portant for the Clerk of Court to
have a financial background as
well as law office experience.


son that either could produce the
kind of positive economic impact
that is needed in the area.
Other sites, including one in
Martin County, have been dis-
cussed, though a decision is still
likely not to be made until well
into next year.
Still, county officials are hope-


Jennifer has both, before going
to work for the Clerk's office she
worked for the State Attorney's
Office while still attending school.
The Clerk's duties are vast and re-
quire someone with a broad un-
derstanding in many areas. With
the County budget being around
$87 million and the Clerk's bud-
get being over $2 million, Jenni-
fer feels she is the best candidate
to carry out the tasks at hand to
ensure that there is transparency,
accountability, diversity, and hon-
esty. "We must demand nothing
less than this in our constitutional
officers and offices in our local
county and country. These are
hard times for many people and
government is going to have to
change business as usual." Jen-
nifer is ready to serve as your next
Clerk of Court and would be hon-
ored for you to put your trust in
her to allow her to do so.

a count is not a circle, but the
boundaries of a County. The idea
is to have a contiguous interlock-
ing set of non-overlapping counts
across North America. It is desir-
able to get as much of each coun-
ty surveyed as resources permit.
Timing of the count: Each
spring and fall another picture
will be acquired of the migra-
tion pattern. From these we may
.discover the shape of migration
particular to each species. The
date of NAMC has been chosen
to capture as many migrants as
possible before they reach the
final destination. It will not be
peak migration everywhere. The
Southern areas will have the lin-
gerers and the northern areas will
still await many of the breeding
species when the spring count
takes place.
Count Dates


While not all the warrants is-
sued for arrests were served, with
some of the suspects eluding
capture on Friday, officials with
the department are hopeful that
more arrests will be made.
Arrested were:
Cleston Bobby Jackson, 19, of
Clewiston, Othell Wilcher, 46, of
Harlem, Dack Hill, 33, of Harlem,
Pedro Luis Centeno, 23, of Clewis-
ton, William Derelle Lyons, 24, of
Harlem, Roberta Lynn Moxley, 38,
of Clewiston, James Yarnell Ad-
dison, 27, of Clewiston, Nekisha


Kirk and his Belgian Malouit, Ma-
jor, who is trained for narcotics
work. The pair works night shift
in eastern Hendry County. Sgt.
Bruce Slade works the day shift
in western Hendry County with
a German Shepherd also cross
trained in various law enforce-
ment skills.


The NAMC takes place across
North America on the third Satur-
day of September and the second
Saturday of May each year. The
near-term counts are Sept. 20,
May 9, 2008, and Sept. 19.
Coordination: Each state has a
state coordinator who is respon-
sible for working with county co-
ordinators, providing tally sheets
and instructions, and giving as-
sistance as needed. When the
counts have been completed, the
state coordinator combines the
county counts into a statewide
count. The data will be displayed
on the FOS web site.
County coordinators recruit
participants, frequently through
the local Audubon chapter or
other bird clubs, assign teams to
areas within the county, provide
tally sheets to the teams, and col-
lect the count information after
the count has been completed.
The county coordinators compile
the results from all of the teams
into a single count for the county
and submit the results to the state
coordinator.
