Early voting Oct. 20


Local, presidential
elections near

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News .
CLEWISTON -- Voters are
once encouraged to exercise
their right to vote by participat-
ing in the Nov. 4 election.
The nationwide audience is
focused on who will lead the
country over the course of the
next four years, whether Ba-
rack Obama or John McCain.
Locally, races are hotly con-
tested for major roles at the
county and city levels.
Perhaps the most scrutinized
of races is occurring for the role
of the county's sheriff.
Incumbent Sheriff Ronnie
Lee (Rep), a staple of law en-
forcement in Hendry County, is
hoping to continue the brand of
governance he believes locals
are familiar with. Newcomer
Steve Whidden (Dem), an of-
ficer with the Clewiston Police
Department, meanwhile is
promising what he calls much-
needed change.
Lee and Whidden both en-
joyed relatively easy support
from voters during the August
primary elections, with Ron-


nie Lee beating out challeng-
ers Rick Hornsby and Kevin
Nelson. Steve Whidden also
defeated opponents Fred Dyess
Jr. and Raul Fernandez for a
chance to face Sheriff Lee.
Hornsby has since endorsed'
Lee, while Nelson has backed
Whidden's campaign. ,
Following Tom Conner's
term as superintendent, Rob-
ert Egley (Rep) and Rick Mur-
phv (Dem) are camipaigning to
become the top official of the
school district in another close-
ly followed contest.
Voters in the eastern portion
of the county are being asked
to select three commissioners
out of four candidates to serve
on the Clewiston City Commis-
sion. Incumbents Mali Cham-
ness, Joey Miller and Julio Ro-
driguez will be vying for votes
alongside Christopher Vary.
Other races featured on the
Nov. 4 ballot include:
Jennifer Davis (Rep) and
Barbara Cox Butler (Dem) for
clerk of the circuit court
Kristina Kulpa (Rep) and
Phillip Pelleter (Dem) for prop-
erty appraiser
Janet Tailor (Dem) and
Phillip D. Roland (NPA) for
county commission district 1


Tris Chapman (Rep), Ray-
mond Rodriguez (Dem) and
Don Davis (NPA) for county
commission district 3
Voters in Clewiston will also
be deciding whether to ap-
prove a new city charter. The is-
sue has become a contentious
one, with both sides, making
arguments for and against the
measure.
A statewide constitutional
amendment will be on the bal-
lot regarding Florida marriage
protects marriage as the uniort
of only one man and one wpm-
an, providing that no other
union treated as marriage wil
be recognized.
Beginning on Monday, and
ending on Nov. 1, registered
voters have the option of par-
ticipating in early voting. Loca-
tions are the LaBelle Elections
office, 25 E. Hickpochee Ave.,
Courthouse Complex 1st Floor
from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., and the
Clewiston Sub-Office Town
Center, 931 W Sugarland Hwy.,
from 8 a.m. to 1 .m. and 2 p.m.
to 5 p.m.

Board of County


Commissioners meet


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
' Balancing the budget first
and foremost, it was the big-
gest issue before the county
commissioners at their Tuesday
night meeting in Pioneer Plan-
tation. When they left, they had
managed to do so, knowing
that the hard budget decisions
will be a way of life over the
coming years.
With the reduction bf the
county millage to 6.5 mills,
which translates to a $2,893,174
shortfall for 2008-09, county
staff was asked to cut their de-
partment budgets once again.
Constitutional officers re-
duced their budgets by a total
of $505,500: the Clerk reduced
hers by $106,000; Property Ap-
praiser by $110,000; Sheriff by
$150,000; Supervisor of Elec-


tions by $1,500; and Tax Collec-
tor by $138,000.
The various departments
managed to cut' $1.2 million
from their budgets. With the
county commission's $505,500
in cuts, that made a total of $1.7
in reductions.
This is the third straight year
the county has had to make big
reductions.
Unsatisfied with the amount
of reductions, commissioners
continue to look for belt tight-
ening measures. Still, Commis-
sioner Darrell Harris felt the
Sheriff could not be asked to
cut more from his budget with-
out jeopardizing public safety.
Commissioner Kevin McCa-
rthy said it isn't critical to make
all the reductions at this time,
saying it can be worked out
over the year, but warned that
next year the county will be


even worse off.
To make up the difference,
the commissioners amended
the Disaster Relief Fun ordi-
nance, reducing the required
minimum in that fund from
$7-10 million to $5 million. At
this time, there is $6.8 million in
the fund.
The county requires another
$1,186,449 to make its budget
whole. Commissioner Har-
ris felt the board should repay
this money to the relief fund .
with interest over a three year
period.
Resident Mike Moore ques-
tioned the need for the county
to hold that much in reserve for
disaster relief.
County Administrator Judi
Kennington-Korf explained that
the money is to be used for oc-

Clewiston Edges 20-19 win


Submitted photo/Jeff Barwick


Tiger Keon Ward sets sail for open territory.


By Jeff Barwick
The Tigers squeaked by the
upstart Crusaders in a key district
game at Sam Budnyk Stadium,
improving their record to 4-2
overall and 1-0 in District 2A-6.
Clewiston entered the game
with two key starters out due to
injuries and quarterback Isandro
Marquez and center/linebacker
Dillon Irey dressed but held out
due to bruises.
Late in the contest, both were
called into duty and were instru-
mental in the comeback win.
The victory was sealed with
2:34 left in the contest when quar-
terback Isandro Marquez swept
the right side for a 7-yard touch-
down on a fourth and goal.
Marquez, other than punting
and placekicking duties, sat out
most of the game nursing a sore
shoulder.
Afterwards he said, "I was
begging Coach Roth the whole
game to play and I finally got the
chance. We called a roll out pass
but both receivers were covered
so I just pulled it down and went
for it."
Clewiston tailback Darris
Hughes scored the other Tiger
touchdowns on a nifty pair of 80
yards jaunts, finishing the game
with 260 yards on 21 carries.
SAfter seeing double duty all
i igfit, a tired Hughes said, "We
had two terrible days of practice
and came in very flat. On that
winning drive, the front line went
to work and got the job done."
The Crusaders took the open-
ing kickoff and marched 77 yards
on 10 short runs and three pass
completions and eating up over 8
minutes off the clock:
Tailback Lee Williams got the
score on a yard dive. Kicker Bren-
dan Gibbons' effort was blocked
by Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino and that proved to be the
margin of victory. It was Trevino's
third block of the season.
After a touchback on the kick-
off, Clewiston wasted no time as
Hughes took a handoff off the left
side and ripped up the sidelines
for an 80-yard score. Marquez
split the uprights on the point af-
ter to give the Tigers a 7-6 lead.
Late in the second period, the
Crusaders were aided by three
Tiger penalties as they drove 64
yards on 9 snaps with Williams
running for the last 19 yards.
Gibbons added the point after
and the half ended with the Tigers
trailing, 13-7.
Clewiston took the second half
kickoff at their 20 after another
touchback by Gibbons, a kicker
certainly headed for a college
football team.
Again, the first snap saw
Hughes rumbling up the middle,
veering, to the outside and racing
for another 80-yard touchdown
run.
Marquez tacked on the extra
point to slide the Tigers to a 14-13
advantage.
Gibbons put the Crusaders


back on top late in the period with
a 50-yard field goal and added to
the cushion when he hit another
field goal, this one from 44 yards
out.
The Tigers, after yet another
Gibbons touchback on the kick-
off, began at their 20.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth then
inserted a banged-up Irey into
the center position to bolster the
'blocking.
Hughes rattled off 5 straight
runs, the last for a 32-yard gain.
On the next play, back-up
quarterback Jonathan Brown
had difficulty with the snap but fi-
nally got the ball into the hands of
back-up tailback Keon Ward Who
bounced outside and raced to the
Crusader 1-yard stripe before be-
ing shoved out of bounds.
Two Hughes' runs into the line
provided nothing and then the Ti-
gers were penalized five yards for
illegal procedure.
Marquez had slipped into the
game and rolled to.his right look-
ing for either the fullback or tight
end but both were covered.
He then tucked the ball away
and headed straight up field and
collided with three Crusaders as
he crashed into the end zone with
only 2:34 left in the game.
The Tigers went for two points
on the conversion and the pass
failed but they finally were back
on top, 20-19.
The Crusaders tried desper-
ately to get within field goal range
for Gibbons. A stout Tiger defense
and two costly penalties shut
down the drive and they turned
the ball over on downs.
From there, Clewiston ran out
the clock.
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino led the effort with 10
tackles and the key blocked extra
point.
Defensive back Damian Smith,
linebackers Duke Ewan and Fred
Washington each had 5 solo tack-
les.
Smith intercepted a Crusader
pass and returned it 32 yards on
the last play of the first half.
He also made a picture perfect
pass defense to stop the Crusad-
ers on their desperation drive late
in the game.
Washington had a fumble re-
covery to snuff a Cardinal New-
man drive at the end of the open-
ing quarter.
Clewiston coach Joe Roth was
relieved the game was over.
He said, "We came inr with
four key starters out and we need
to get healthy with our open date
coming up. Isandro showed to-
night why he is one of our cap-
tains. That was a gutsy run he
made to win the game."
Clewiston now has a week off
to nurse the bumps and bruises.
They'll host Pope John Paul II on
Oct. 24 in another District 2A-6
game.
Tailback Darris Hughes now
has 1,260 yards rushing on the
season and is the second leading

Glades Day scores Taylor-made victory


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE Glades Day's
homecoming game against Evan-
gelical Christian likely won't soon
be forgotten.
In the Gators 43-36 home vic-
tory over the Sentinels, it was an
eighth-grader that led the way in
this unpredictable contest.
For starters, no one at Gator
Field thought that it would prove
to be a close game.
After all, in Glades Day's last
three home meetings with Evan-
gelical Christian, all wins, the
combined score was 108-0.
In addition to that, Evangelical
Christian wasn't even in the mix
for last year's District 6-1A play-
offs, finishing with a 1-2 district
record.
But Glades Day needed a ca-
reer game from Kelvin Taylor,
who is the son of Glades Central
alum and current Jacksonville
Jaguars running back Fred Taylor.
The eighth-grader had 26 car-
ries for 228 yards and three touch-
downs in the District 6-1A opener
for both teams.
That makes it Taylor's fifth
consecutive game in which he
has rushed for more than 100
yards.
For an eighth-grader, that's
nothing short of impressive.
He scored Glades Day's sec-
ond touchdown of the game, a
2-yard run with 4:02 left in the
opening quarter.
In addition, Taylor accounted
for both of the Gators second
half touchdowns, which included
a 2-yard run with 7:14 left in the
third quarter and a 1-yard run to
end the quarter.
"Bay-Bay (Kelvin Taylor)
came out and played like he usu-
ally does," said Deandre Jackson,
Glades Day's top wide receiver.
"He ran the ball hard and showed
some maturity as a running
back."
If Taylor made the difference
in the running game, Jackson did
the same thing on the passing
front.
'Jackson, who had a season-
high seven receptions for 160
yards, caught two touchdown
passes from quarterback Bo
Schlecter.
Jackson's first receiving touch-
down came on the game's ini-
tial drive, a 16-yard throw from
+ Schlecter with 8:12 left in the first
quarter.
That put Glades Day up 7-0.
Evangelical's defense seem-
ingly had no answer for Glades
Day's skill position players as the
Gators scored touchdowns on its
first six drives, which accounted
for the first three quarters of the
game.
Jackson caught his second
touchdown on a 45-yard pass
from Schlecter with 3:26 left in
the first half.
Schlecter was 12-for-16 with
215 passing yards and two touch-
downs for the game.
Pete Walker, Glades Day's
head coach, was thoroughly im-
pressed with the performances of
both Jackson and Schlecter.
"Deandre did well after the
catch, played both ways and has
an all-around game," Walker said
of the Suncoast transfer, who
also logged in time as a defensive
back. "Bo had a great game, got
receivers open, did a good job
mixing things up for us."
Walker may be proud of the
fact that Glades Day had 24 first
downs in the game, while scor-
ing on their first six drives, which
spanned for three quarters.
However, Glades Day needed
all of that offensive output to win
this game, as the Gators defense
had lots of trouble stopping Sen-
tinels-junior quarterback Colton
Lynch.
Lynch (18 carries, 228 yards,
1 TD; 8-16 passing, 126 yards,
3 TDs) was just too. much for
Glades Day's defense to handle,
scoring on a 37-yard run with 6:10
left in the first.
Evangelical's first touchdown,
which was an answer to Jack-
son's 16-yard scoring catch about
two minutes earlier, made it 7-6 in
favor of Glades Day.
The Sentinels tied the game
up, 14-14, after Lynch threw
an 18-yard touchdown pass to
sophomore wide receiver An-
drew Chebator with 55 seconds
left in the first. It preceded a suc-
cessful two-point conversion
run by Lynch. That scoring drive
answered Taylor's 2-yard touch-
down run, which put Glades Day
up 14-6.
Evangelical stayed close
throughout the first half, pull-
ing within one point on a 5-yard
score by running back Jonathan
Skaff with 2:02 left in the second.


Glades Day led 21-20' at that
point before senior Jarrett Swaby
(six carries, 59 yards) extended
the lead on a 3-yard touchdown
run with 55 seconds left in the
half. Swaby's score put the Gators
up 28-20 at halftime.
But after it seemed like Glades
Day would pull away in the third


quarter, Evangelical made the
fourth quarter very interesting.
Down 43-20, after Glades Day
freshman Tanner Redish loses a
fumble with 6:14 left, the Senti-
nels started at their own 40 yard
line.
Lynch, who made a 23-yard
run for a first down on the scoring
drive, threw a 37-yard touchdown
to Skaff (four catches, 92 yards,
two TDs) with 5:35 left.
The score, now 43-28 in favor
of Glades Day, changed again as
the duo hooked up for a 41-yard
strike with just 2:30 left.
After Evangelical converted
on a two-point conversion, they
elected to go for the onside kick.
Fortunately for the Glades Day
faithful, the Gators recovered the
kick and ran out the game clock.
"You could see the caliber
of athletes we have and what
Glades Day has," said Evangelical
head coach Brian Lynch, whose
team has only three seniors and
19 overall.
"Glades Day's athletes appear
to be superior compared to us.
"But we fought and battled
them to a really close game," h6
continued. "We are the strongest
little team I've ever seen, I can't
take anything away from them."
Walker was obviously not
pleased with how his defense
performed, as Glades Day al-
lowed 307 total rushing yards to
Evangelical.
"#12 (Lynch) is a great ath-
lete, we didn't tackle him well,"
Walker said.
"We need to work on our
tackling and get better at it," the
Glades Day coach continued.
"Defensively, we're not playing
well right now."
Glades Day (3-2; 1-0 District
6-1A) has allowed more than 300
rushing yards for the third con-
secutive game.
Tomorrow night, they'll be at
home against American Heritage-
Delray Beach, who is the defend-
ing Class 1A state champions.
The Gators, who have lost two
straight games to the Stallions,
hope to avenge last year's 33-8
regular season loss and 28-7 state
semifinal defeat.
Fortunately for Glades. Day,
they won't have to face Justin
Feagin, who single-handedly
torched their defense in both
games last season.
The American Heritage-Delray
graduate is now playing for the
University of Michigan.
"We must control !he ball on
offense and tackle on defense if
we want to beat American Heri-
tage," Walker said. "It's up for
grabs, either team can win on
Friday."
Pahokee 42, Melbourne
Central Catholic 3: Emmanuel


Perez, starting for the first time,
was 13-for-19 passing with 128
yards and two touchdowns in the
win.
The sophomore's touchdown
passes went to junior wide receiv-
er Zachary Alien (three catches,
61 yards) and senior Nu'Keese
Richardson (two catches, seven
yards).
Pahokee's other scores, which
came on runs, were from Vincent
Smith (17 rushes, 182 yards, 3
TDs) and Richardson (two rush-
es, 16 yards, 1 TD).
The Blue Devils, who had their
32-game winning streak snapped
on Oct. 3 against Byrnes, S.C.
(school record), limited the Hus-
tlers to eight total first downs and
161 total yards.
Pahokee (5-1; 2-0 in District
7-2B play) is off this weekend.
They won't play again until
Oct. 24 against John Carroll, a
road game.
Glades Central 35, Cardi-
nal Gibbons 30: Raiders quar-
terback Leron 'L.J.' Thomas (20-
for-31 passing, 284 yards, 4 TDs)
came through in the clutch for the
second game in a row.
Only this time, he threw a
game-winning 3-yard touchdown
pass to Fred Pickett with 28 sec-
onds left in the fourth quarter.
The clutch play came after
Glades Central was down 30-28
late in the game.
That's Thomas' fourth gamre-
winning pass this season, which
includes a 17-yard pass to James
West in the Raiders 6-0 quadruple
overtime win over Dwyer on Oct.
4. As usual, after Glades Central
wins a close game, it ends with a
big defensive play.
Antwon Chisolm (five rushes,
47 yards, 1 TD) caught the game-
ending interception after a Hail
Mary attempt from the Redskins.
Glades Central's other touch-
downs came from Rantavious
Wooten (four catches, 94 yards,
1 TD), Kevin Benjamin (three
catches, 75 yards, 1 TD) and An-
tonio McCloude (five catches, 16
yards, 1 TD; six rushes, 31 yards).
Surprisingly, the District 15-3A
opener for both teams was close
throughout on the strength of
Redskins running game, led by
Dareyone Chance.
The Redskins running back
finished with 21 rushes for 124
yards and a touchdown.
Glades Central (6-0; 1-0 in Dis-
trict 15-3A play) is off tomorrow
night. The Raiders play their next
game Oct. 24 on the road against
Archbishop McCarthy.
St. John Neumann 25,
Moore Haven 6: The other
District 6-1A opener'did not go
as planned for the Terriers, as a
bench-clearing brawl and two
rain delays played key roles in


their defeat.
According to published re-
ports, after the brawl, which
wasn't discussed in detail, two
Moore Haven players were eject-
ed from the game.
That played well into St. John
Neumann's hands, as last year's
District 6-1A runner-up roughed
up Moore Haven quarterback
Dalton Britt, who was sacked four
times in the game.
Britt (9-for-26 passing, 141
yards, 1 TD) was picked off five
times, including a 53-yard inter-
ception return for a touchdown
by Celtics defensive back Austin
Nel,, who caught two INTs in the
game.
That defensive score was the
last one in the district game.
In all fairness, Moore Haven
was down 13-6 going into the
fourth quarter, so they could have
easily came back and won the
their home game.
But St. John Neumarn did\an
excellent job in shutting down
Fred Hall, who finished with
a season-low 13 carries for 14
yards.
Overall, the Terriers running
game was anemic, finishing with
-23 rushing yards.
Moore Haven (4-1; 0-1 in Dis-
trict 6-1A play) won its first four
regular season on the strength of
Hall's performances.
The junior's four-game streak
of 100-yard running games was
snapped in the loss.
About the only thing that the
Celtics couldn't stop was Terriers
wideout Xavier Fagan, who fin-
ished with seven catches for 125
yards and a touchdown.
Fagan, who now has 624 re-
ceiving yards in just five games,
is the state's No. 2 receiver, ac-
coridng to MaxPreps Florida. He
is just 19 yards shy of overtak-
ing Sebring's Devin Clarke (643
yards) for the state lead. The of-
fense for St. John Neumann (2-3;
1-0 in District 6-1A play) was led
by Will Affleck, who rushed for
69 yards on 22 carries. He scored
both of the Celtics rushing touch-
downs, which put them up 13-0
in the first quarter.
Moore Haven crept to within
seven points after Fagan's 28-yard
touchdown grab from Britt.
After no team scored in the
third quarter, St. John Neumann
put the Terriers to bed after quar-
terback Anthony Demao threw a
24-yard strike to Ashley Radcliffe.
Radcliffe accounted for 55 re-
ceiving yards (118 overall) against

HENDRY SHERIFFS: Although I didn't attend the recent meet-
ing Hendry County Sheriff's Office had for input from the public (for
personal reasons) and I was not also privy to the results, we will not
see any solutions the HCSO budget unless we take steps immediately.
While driving through Lehigh Acres recently, I saw a patrol car from
HCSO parked at his home. How many other patrol officers take their
patrol cars home to other outlying counties? Who is keeping track
of them? What is the cost to the taxpayers in fuel, maintenance and
insurance to all these vehicles? Other counties charge their officers a
certain amount for them to take their vehicles home. Also, the HCSO
continues to hire confidential informants for their drug busts? At what
cost and risk? Can we afford another lawsuit? If the current fanaticism
of the current HCSO continues in arresting individuals for drugs, the
current jail will be so overflowed that we may one day have to pay
other counties to house them or face potential lawsuits. Wake up Hen-
dry County, we are way behind the ball!

if you know the hard work, time
and dedication that your daughter
put into the pageant.
Second of all, becoming the
crowned Miss at a pageant takes
great determination and I've
learned that experience in pag-
eants helps a great deal. To win,
not only do you have to have
heart, but have confidence, and
knowledge of the expectations.
I've been competing in pageants
for several years now, and I'm
proud of myself for having finally
achieved my goal and become
Miss Latina of the Glades. So, as
you can see, there was nothing
handed to me in a silver platter.
The accusations that the win-
ners didn't even have to show up
to pageant practices are totally
false. Everyone present at these
practices are witnesses, that my-
self, as well as Miss Teen Latina
were present at every practice,
especially the final ones which
were the most important to every
contestant, since we were inter-
viewed by the judges. It's evident
to all the girls involved with this
pageant, that we all followed ev-
ery rule and gave our all.
It's disappointing when oth-
ers make up lies about the girls
who win. It's understandable
that those attending pageants
may have different views on who
should win as well as having fa-
voritisms towards certain contes-
tants over others. However, the
expert panel of judges made their
decisions based on the criteria
established. It's sad when people
try to defame others without even
having any proof to back up their
statements.

City Charter


The citizens of Clewiston need
to fully understand the Nov. 4 bal-
lot referendum about adopting a
new city charter. Unfortunately,
on the ballot it is reflected as a
simple yes or no vote and the ad-
vertisements being paid for with
our tax dollars don't give you any
inkling of what's included in the
proposed document. If this was
a needed and legitimate change,
don't you think the advertise-
ments would provide some of the
benefits of the changes? If you
don't understand the issue, you
should go to city hall or the city
Web site, get a copy and read if
before voting.
Here are the facts. The city is
not operating under a 1947 char-
ter, as their advertisement would
lead you to believe. That charter
has been updated over the years
by city ordinances. Of great con-
cern, the proposed charter essen-
tially gives the city manager total
control in operation of the city
without checks and balances. If
enacted, the city manager would
have total say on the hiring or dis-
missal of the chief of police, the
city's finance director and other
department heads without com-
mission involvement. The charter
is also worded to seriously restrict
discussions between our elected
commissioners and city employ-
ees, thus requiring the commis-
sioners to funnel all of their re-
quests through the city manager.
Further, the city manager would
be empowered to move money
between different accounts with-
out commission approval.
The city Commissioners voted
4-1 with Mayor Chamness. dis-
senting, to place the matter on the
Nov. 4 ballot. I believe the com-
mission vote was swayed in part
by the positive recommendation,
from the citizens group whose
discussions were hampered by
improper involvement .from the
city manager.
Please vote no on the pro-
posed charter. This proposal was
rushed through entirely too quick-
ly with little or any time for public
involvement or comment. If the
commissioners desire to update


the city charter, they can begin the
process in adequate time to allow
for full public participation and
understanding before the next
General Election in 2010. There's
no glaring problems with our cur-
rent city charter, as amended, that
can't wait until then:

Volunteers needed
Clewiston Yduth Baseball and
Girls Softball is a recreational or-
ganization through Dixie League
Inc. It has been: around since
the 80's in Clewiston. Through-
out the years the name has been
changed,. but the cause behind
the league has stayed the same.
We have one season per year,
usually registration begins around
Oct Jan. and out three month
season to follow.
For the three years that I have
been secretary, we have had
around 450 kids join our league,
and over 40 volunteers each sea-
son.
On average we have 10-20
board members who serve the
league, many coaches, and tons
of team moms.
Our board members are there
to ensure that all players are'be-
ing treated fairly, that all coaches
are teaching the fundamentals of
baseball and softball correctly.
Also, board members are there
to assure that each child is safe in
the sport. Some board members
have specific job duties such as
President, Vice President, Secre-
tary, Treasurer, Uniforms/Spon-
sorships, Equipment, Umpires,
VP .over coaches, Concession
stand, Photographs, and much
more.
They mainly are "behind the
,Scenes" people. They are the
ones in charge of organizing and
running the entire program. What
people don't see is the amount
of work that is put in before the
season begins, during the season
and after.
Our coaches put in a lot of
their free time, working with kids
almost five days a week, teach-
ing them the fundamentals of


the sport, and most importantly
teamwork. They show the kids
how to safely and effectively play
baseball and softball, and teach
them good sportsmanship.
Our other volunteers are very
important as well. They help out
in the dug. outs, on the practice
fields, and in the concession
stand. They also fill in when the
coaches can not attend.
We have uripires who are
very knowledgeable. They are the
only paid persons in our league.
We are not here to make a profit,
but to allow kids to enjoy a team
sport in which they can learn and
* grow within.
We have sponsors who assist
us in the costs of being part of
Dixie Inc. We offer a banner and
names of the sponsor on the play-
ers' uniforms in exchange for a.
predetermined cost. Without our
sponsors, volunteers and parents,
we would not be able to have rec-
reational baseball and softball.
Throughout the years, I have
noticed a decrease in volunteers.
Last year, we barely had enough
coaches to cover our teams.
We are in desperate need of
anyone who would like to vol-
unteer. The duties can be split
among several people to make
the load lighter.
When asked 'to volunteer,
most people think of putting in
100 percent of their free time,
but that is not the case. If you can
only offer to help on a certain day,
then come on. We can use any-
one over the age of 18, male or
female.'
We would like to see more vol-
uhteers this season, so that some
;of our board members (some
have been a board member for
15 plus years) could retire.
We would love to see any-
one help out, not just ones who
have kids playing we love to see
grandparents, and others from
the community as well.
Thanks,
Heather Lowman

Lady Tigers add new staff

The Clewiston Lady Tigers continues to sharpen their volleyball skills, posting impressive
wins against other area teams.


CLEWISTON -- New coaches
have been added to the staff of
the JV and Varsity girls' volleyball
tears this year and the players
have learned a lot under their di-
rection.
George Duckstein and Al Perry
join previous coach Dace Garza
in coaching the Lady Tigers.
Their record has already im-
proved over past seasons.
The girls are all getting more
detailed instruction on the game,
its positions, and ball handling;
encompassing, serving, digging,
setting and spiking.
They are learning to bring their
new skills all together to control
the ball against their opponents.
The JV team is a sign of things
to come. The freshmen, sopho-
mores and juniors all competed


in a JV tournament at Evangelical
Christian School in Ft. Myers Sept.
26 27, and ended up in 9th place
out of 18 teams.
They won 3 games out of 4,
even though' they were missing
their Libero Samantha Ortiz (Jr)
who was in Texas competing in
the Miss Teen Latina Pageant.
The girls communicated well
and never gave up as they com-
peted against teams who most-
likely play volleyball all year round'
in tournaments.
Varsity is showing much im-
provement in confidence and ball
handling skills.
After a few quirks on rotations
against Avon Park, the first game
,of the year, the Tigers went on to
defeat Moore Haven, Pahokee,
Immokalee, and Gateway Char-


ter. Games lost are against strong
programs in Lake Placid, So. Ft
Myers, LaBelle and Lemon Bay.
The girls practice their new
skills regularly against the Clewis-
ton Boosters and other coaches
at CHS.
The games are fun to watch,
and the team would like to invite
you out to watch them play. It is a
$4 admission fee, and a conces-
sion stand is available.
The remaining schedule for
home games is:
Oct 14, LaBelle (5th place) ,JV
at 6pm Varsity at 7pm District
Game
Oct 16, Riverdale (1st place)
JV at 6pm -Varsity at 7pm District

FLW Stren Tournament


2009

INI Florida This information
is being released to eliminate any
misinformation that anglers and
businesses may have received re-
garding the 2009 FLW Stren Tour-
nament.
It has been confirmed by Mr.
BillTaylor, Director of Tournament
Operations for FLW Outdoors, in
order to meet scheduling and ad-


vertising responsibilities, the deci-
sion regarding the location of the
2009 FLW Stren Tournament had
to be made in June of 2008.,
Due to the low lake levels at
that time, it was decided to hold
the tournament in Clewiston in-
stead of Okeechobee as planned.
With uncertainty of lake levels
rising during this decision period,
even with low lake levels the an-
glers could still fish the rim canal
in Clewiston and the FLW Stren
Tournament would still remain in


the Lake Okeechobee area.
There were no other fac-
tors in that decision. Fqr any
future concerns regarding
scheduling of tournaments
or questions regarding tourna-
ments in Okeechobee County, I

Is online banking Births


safe to rely on? U


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
A few weeks ago, I was listen-
ing to the radio and heard a dis-
cussion of online banking. You
may have heard it too. This partic-
ular discussion was about a study
released in July, 2008 that pointed
out flaws in some banks' online
security system. It was written by
researchers at the University of
Michigan.
That's why I'm writing this
column about security when you
are banking online. Some seniors
seem slow to bank online, but
some are finding banking online
liberating. Most employees pay-
checks are .direct deposited and
you never see a live check. So-
cial security has mandated that
checks will be deposited directly
to our bank. Online banking is the
logical next step.
My reason for writing on this
topic is to reassure you that by
taking a few, careful steps you
will be able to bank safely online.
Enjoy the convenience of on-
line banking to:
Move money from one
account to another.
Check your bank bal-
ance from home.
Keep watch on the daily
changes to your account,
and much more.
With a few precautions you
can bank safely online.
First, make sure your bank
has a clear statement or policy
regarding accessing your funds
with your computer..For exam-
ple, Bank of America has the fol-
lowing guarantee to protect you
the customer. "Our safe Internet
banking measures guarantee
$0 liability for any unauthorized
activity originating from Online
Banking, including Bill Payment."
You also must agree to'notify the
bank if your password is ever sto-
len, within a certain time frame.
Second, pay attention and do
the following things when-you
are banking online.
1.Before you log on, make
sure you type the bank's internet
address into your browser's ad-
dress line. You should save this
safe address in your favorites for
use next time. Do not ever click a
link from an email that appears to
be from your bank. Thieves can
be pretty clever and set up a site
+ that is identical to your bank's.
2.When the page comes up

ger Volleyball player Sarah

Regular exams by a Board (


where you need to input your
user 11, look at the address line in
your browser. Look for !li,-. at
the beginning of the web address.
Notice the "s" that stands for se-
curity. For the duration of your
visit, the "s" should be visible in
that address. Question your bank
if it's not there.
3.Most banks and credit unions
now use a two-page sequence to
log into your financial informa-
tion. On the first page you will
be asked for your user ID, then
a second page appears with a
picture. Only you and your bank
know which picture you chose
when you set up to bank online.
So when the picture appears, and
there is an "s" in the address at
the top of your browser address
line, it is safe to enter your pass-
word.
4.Passwords. A good pass-
word is at least eight characters
long with both lower case and
upper case letters. Put a number
somewhere in the middle. Don't
use your child's name or your
street address or phone number.
Those are too easily guessed.
Do use, the name of your first el-
ementary school, for example,
or the make of your first car, with
a number in the middle. For ex-
ample, "Green84wood" is a good
password only because it follows
the rules and I'll remember it be-
cause it means something to me.
If it is never written down, no one
can steal it from you.
Don't bank at a public com-
puter. Save your banking tasks for
your home computer.
These same rules apply to
paying bills online, with one dif-
ference. There is no response pic-
ture and usually your user ID and
password are requested on the
same page. I pay all my bills on-
line including electric, insurance,
and mortgage.
So don't let the fear generated
by yet another story about online
banking keep you from a com-
puter capability that is so conve-
nient. The Internet is not going
away and online. banking and
bill paying will only increase. We
need to learn how to do it safely.
See you next Monday-happy
computing.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers or
corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.

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

Mahoney responds to rumors


PALM BEACH GARDENS --
For the second time consecutive
campaign years, the Florida Con-
gressional District Race has been
rocked by a sex scandal.
ABC News reported Monday
that Congressman Tim .Mahoney
(D-FL), whose predecessor Mark
Foley resigned in the wake of a
sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000
payment to a former mistress
who worked on his staff and was
threatening to sue him, according
to current and former members
of his staff who have been briefed
on the settlement, which involved
Mahoney and his campaign com-
mittee.
The ABC report continued:
"Mahoney, who is married, also
promised the woman, Patricia Al-
len, a $50,000 a year job for two
years at the agency that handles
his campaign advertising, the
staffers said."
The news report stated that Ms.
Alien and Mr. Mahoney reportedly
became involved during his 2006


campaign. "Following his elec-
tion in 2006, Allen was hired, at
taxpayers expense, to work on
Mahoney's Congressional staff
in Florida, at a yearly salary of
$36,000," the ABC web site report
stated. "After complaints about
the affair circulated in Wash-
ington, Alien was moved to the
campaign staff, the staffers say.
Friends of Allen told ABC News
that Allen sought to break off the
Affair when she learned Mahoney
was allegedly involved in other
extra-marital relationships at the
same time. Her friends say she
told them Mahoney threatened
that ending the relationship could
cost her the job."
Accompanied by his wife Ter-
ry, Congressman Tim Mahoney
(FL-16) issued the following state-
ment Tuesday: "I would have
come forward earlier but making
sure my family is ok is far more
important than any political ca-
reer. I have not violated my oath
of office, nor have I violated any


laws, and I consider this to be a
private matter.
"I take full responsibility for
my actions and the pain 1 have
caused my wife Terry and my
daughter, Bailey. No marriage is
perfect, but our private life is our
private life, and I am sorry that
these allegations have caused
embarrassment and heartache.
"I have requested that the
House Ethics Committee inves-
tigate the false 'allegations that
have been repeated in the press.
I want to be clear that I have not
misused campaign funds and I'm
confident that when all the facts
come to light, I will be cleared of
any wrongdoing.
"I think the people of my Dis-
trict know that I am a fighter and
I am not going to allow this story
coming out 20 days before an
election to change my resolve to
serve the people of the 16th Con-
gressional District. I have worked
hard and I am prepared to put
my faith in the people and ask for


their vote."
Mr. Mahoney, a Democrat, was
elected to Congress following the
scandal involving Republican
Congressman Mark Foley, whose
political career was destroyed in
2006 after teenage boys who had
served as Congressional Pages
claimed he made sexually-explicit
remarks to them online over in-
stant message. In the wake of the
scandal Mr. Foley resigned from
Congress and signed himself into
a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol-.
ism.
The Florida Department bf Law
Enforcement closed their investi-
gation on Sept. 19, citing insuffi-
cient evidence to pursue criminal
charges. However, Mr. Foley could
still face federal charges.
Congressional District 16 in-
cludes parts of Charlotte, Glades,
Hendry, Highlands, Okeechobee,
St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach
Counties.

U.S. Sugar cane harvest under way


Clewiston, FL October 10,
2008 U.S. Sugar began its 2008-
09 sugarcane harvest early in the
morning on October 3 and be-
gan processing the first railcars
of cane at the Clewiston Sugar
Factory at noon. The harvest was
delayed from its scheduled Oct.
1 start due to rain. The company
plans to harvest 170,396 acres,
yielding an estimated 6.3 million
tons of sugarcane and producing
13.8 million cwt. ofraw sugar. The
Clewiston Refinery is projected to
produce 13.1 million cwt refined
sugar.
"Following an excellent repair
season at the raw sugar factory
and a successful start up at the
mill, we are looking forward to
getting this crop underway," said
Robert Coker, senior vice presi-
dent, public affairs.
Completing a record-breaking
year, the Clewiston Refinery is
400,000 cwt. ahead of its targeted
production for the year. With the
Clewiston Refinery operating at a
record-breaking pace, U.S. Sugar
imported additional raw sugar
from Mexico for the first time and
expanded its sugar sales. Since
May, more than 48,000 metric
- tons of Mexican "estandar"' sugar
has been delivered to the refinery
and processed.


Submitted photo
U.S. Sugar began its sugarcane harvest recently, beginning
operations on the morning of Oct. 3.


"It is important to note that
this imported sugar has enabled
us to process and sell additional
sugar above and beyond the
sugar sold contractually for this
year," said Robert Coker.
Coker said that statements
made by competitors regarding
the imported sugar are incorrect.
The company had produced and
delivered all the sugar contracts


sold for 2007-08 season. Sugar
contracts are sold well in advance,
with nearly 90% of the sugar that
will be produced during the up-
coming season (starting in Octo-
ber) already sold.
The sugar refining and pack-
aging facility broke production
records at the end of August for
total refined production (12.91
million cwt), packaged produc-


tion (4.65 million cwt), and liquid
sugar production (634,222 cwt).
Previous records: total refined
production (11.34 cwt, set in 05-
06), packaged production (4.13
million cwt., set in 03-04) and
liquid sugar production (514,341
cwt, set in 06-07).
Three years ago, the Refinery's
capacity was expanded to enable
the facility to refine all of the com-
pany's raw sugar production.
Current capacity is 45,000 cwt. or
2250 tons per day. The expansion
along with the enhanced high
quality sugar produced by the
modernization and consolidation
of the Clewiston Mill and a stable
team of refinery employees are
credited with the record produc-
tion.
U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art
sugar factory in Clewiston is the
result of a project, termed "Break-
through" for its dramatic consoli-
dation and transformation of the
Company's two older raw sugar
milling operations. The three-year
construction project incorporated
the best sugar technology from
around the world.


Florida Bankers


meet with Governor



Crist


Representatives from Florida's
banking industry met with Gov.
Charlie Crist at the Governors
Mansion this morning to convey
important news: Florida's banks
are the safest place for citizens to
keep their money.
And, furthermore, banks are
ready to lend.
Especially in these turbulent
economic times, its important
to know that an FDIC insured
bank is the best place to have
your money, said Alex Sanchez,
President and CEO of the Florida.
Bankers Association (FBA). In
the 75 years since the FDIC was
established, not a dime-not even
a penny-of an insured deposit has
been lost.
Recent changes now allow for
customers to have $250,000 of
insurance, which can be crafted
to allow for even more coverage
depending upon the number and
structure of accounts.
One of the messages that the
FBA and bankers shared with the
Governor today is that Florida's
banks are strong, have money to
lend and are open for business.
We discussed the states eco-
nomic status and gave Gov. Crist
an update on the lending industry
in Florida, said Sanchez.
Recent headlines would lead
you to believe that money for
mortgages has dried up.
The truth is, banks have mon-
ey to lend homeowners for new
purchases and to refinance exist-
ing mortgages as well as money
to lend small businesses that need
access to capital.
Additionally, members of the
FBA wanted to reinforce mes-
sages that bankers want to keep
people in their homes and only
use foreclosure as a last resort.
Anyone behind in their pay-
ments of their mortgage should
contact his or her banker imme-
diately.
Bankers are working with their
customers and want to avoid
foreclosure if at all possible, said
Sanchez.
Call your lenders. They under-
stand when there are challenges
to overcome and will work with


you to find the best solutions.
The bankers who attended the
meeting and press conference
were:
Matt Brown Premier Bank;
Mike Fields Bank of America;
Mike Sims Farmers and Mer-
chants; Tom Pennekamp Sun-
Trust; Sammie Dixon Prime Me-
ridian; Bryan Robinson ProBank;
ODave Buckridge Ameris Bank;

MISSING DOG


DESCRIPTION :100#s, huge white head
with brindle ears, brindle body, white
chest and legs, bridle patch on chest
Five weeks ago my American Bulldog
was lost in the Punta Gorda area. I
received a call from a man in the
Clewiston area who said he picked
him up in Punta Gorda approximate-
ly four weeks ago. He fully described
my dog and said he would retum him
the following day. He was calling
from a blocked cell phone and never
retumed my dog. Through my cell
phone carrier and reverse search, I
know the man is located somewhere
in the Harlem or Twin Lakes area.

The truth about America's banks


By Tabitha Trent, Branch
Manager
Riverside National Bank,
Okeechobee
Abraham Lincoln, one of
America's greatest "crisis manag-
ers," was a firm believer in Ameri-
cans' ability to handle a crisis.
"If given the truth, they can be
depended upon to meet any na-
tional crisis," he said. "The great
point is to bring them the real
facts."
Though the intense change
that America's economy and fi-
nancial system. is undergoing
now is not nearly as profound
as the crisis Lincoln confronted
in his day, Lincoln's observation
remains fundamentally true to-
day. In that spirit, I would like to


offer you facts about the state of
our nation's banking system. that
I hope you will find both informa-
tive and reassuring.
Fact. The vast majority of Amer-
ica's banks are highly capitalized.
What does that mean? It means
the industry has a cushion of
about $1.3 trillion that stands as a
backstop against possible losses,
making the possibility of anyone's
bank being taken over by the Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corpora-
tion (FDIC) remote. And if it did
happen, you would continue to
have uninterrupted access to your
FDIC insured deposits.
Fact. Deposits in commer-
cial banks and thrift institutions
are insured by the FDIC, and no
one has ever lost a penny of in-
sured deposits. Even better, the


agency has temporarily raised its
coverage amount from $100,000
to $250,000 per depositor per in-
sured institution through Dec. 31,
2009.
Fact. Banks pay premiums to
provide FDIC insurance for their
customers. The fund that guaran-
tees bank customers' deposits is
completely, 10Q-percent funded
by banks not by the govern-
ment, not by taxpayers.
Fact. Most of the turmoil in-
volves large institutions (Fannie
Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Broth-
ers, AIG) that are not banks. And
while Washington Mutual, which
was recently closed and then
acquired by JP Morgan Chase,
was a bank, the transaction was
a seamless one that protected all
deposits even amounts above


the limit.
American commercial banks
are among the most highly regu-
lated in the world. The current cri-
sis should force needed reforms
on the less regulated mortgage
brokers and Wall Street.
Remember, no FDIC-insured
depositor has ever lost a penny.
Lincoln was only one of many
presidents who witnessed Ameri-
cans' resiliency. In crises, Ameri-
cans pull together. We've been
through tough times before and
we'll get through this.

"I can do all things
through Him that
strengthens me"

By The Reverend
Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are times a word of
comfort or reassurance can make
a real difference in somebody's
life.
I've tried to do that over the
years and hope that what I share
will be of help to someone facing
a tragedy or difficult situation.
Many Biblical passages come
to mind: we all have our favor-
ites:
As I was reading this past
week, one of them was in the text
from Saint Paul's Epistle to the
Philippians; "I can do all things
through Him that strengthens me
(4:13)."
That is really a comforting
thought. Sometimes, though, we
must sound like Job's friends
when trying to be of help.
Job was hurting, everything
went wrong that could go wrong
and his friends really offer little
help.
Platitudes do not help.
Telling Job that he must be
doing something wrong or other-
wise bad things wouldn't happen
doesn't help. Coming with com-
ments that show his friends don't
really understand his pain doesn't


help.
That's the challenge: to really
do some good in a bad moment.
As I got back to the verse that
is often quoted to be of help, I
found it preceded by a "secret."
The passage comes at the end
of Paul's recap of his experiences
and what he has learned.
It does not come in isolation
but after talking about our part is
making God's promise our own.
Paul is in prison as he writes
it(ch.1, v. 14). It certainly is not a
time for him to be celebrating!
What, then, can .be encourag-
ing him to say "I can do all things
through Him that strengthens
me"?
The answer comes by putting
to use what is around him and the
gifts he has on hand from God.
The admonition is that we "do
not worry about anything (easy
to say how can we replace wor-
ries?) "but with prayer and sup-
plication, with thanksgiving let
your requests be known to God
(v. 6)."
Well, even if things are really
bad, they can be offered up to
God and at least we can ask for
His help.
We pray neither to a "celes-
tial magician" nor someone who
is there to do all of our bidding;
there are things we're supposed
to do in this life even at difficult
times.
Paul continues by telling us to
"hang on to the good things and
"keep doing the things you have


grateful for the support we have, Fr-AA na .h FI n ldr
Free Sneach a d


learned and received..." and there
will be your strength.
Paul, in the midst of his own
suffering and difficulty, was grate-
ful for the concerns expressed by
others about his well-being.
He is not feeling sorry for him-
self; "not that I am referring to be-
ing in need, for I have learned to
be content with whatever I.have
(v.11)."
He reminds his readers that "I
know what it is to have little and I
know what it is to have plenty.
In any and all circumstances,
I have learned the secret of being
well-fed and going hungry; of hav-
ing plenty and being in need."
Then Paul concludes with
that verse that is so often quoted
"I can do all things through Him
that strengthens me."
It is up to us to call upon God
when we're hurting but not to ex-
pect that we have nothing to do
afterward.
We are to fall back on the val-
ues and things we've learned;
putting them to work and learn-
ing how to draw upon our own
inner resources too.
Paul,. when talking about
knowing good times and bad;
being well-fed and being hungry,
then talks his 'secret.'
The secret he reveals is that we
have resources within and need
to 'get busy;" forgetting self-pity
and make the best of even a bad
time.
Putting life in order with the
resources at hand and being


Confessions of a food addict


The long, hard steps
toward recovery
begin one at a time

SBy Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Hi, my name is John and I'm a
recovering food alcoholic.
I enjoy food.
Good times call for celebration
bring on the good stuff!
Bad times call for comfort 1
love comfort food.
And what's a good gathering
without some munchies making
it better?
I found I was eating when I
was happy, eating when I was sad,
eating when I was bored, when I
was active, when I was stressed,
and even when I wasn't really
aware I was packing it away.
Some have a hard time under-
standing how a person can down
a half gallon of ice cream without
realizing the amount that was
consumed.
I don't.
Some don't understand late
night or closet munching.
I do. I've been there.
Some people can eat anything
and not gain weight.
I can't.
I have always half-seriously
joked that I could gain three
pounds just by smelling some-
thing.
Behind the laughter of the jok-
ing there are tears.
Last year, God got in my face
and I lost 132 pounds. To accom-
plish it, I had to change my life-
style.
The only surgery I had for
my weight loss was the removal
of bad habits and the grafting of
new ones.
Now comes confession time.
Over these last months, some
of the bad habits (and pounds)
started creeping back.
My new and healthier lifestyle
was eroding away. A little treat
here, a little there nothing bad
in itself, but the accumulation
started taking its toll.
To quote the Apostle Paul,
"What I want to do I do not do,
but what I hate to do I do."
Little bit by little bit, pound by
pound nothing noticeable at first

- but then the clothes weren't as
loose as they once were the belt
had to be let out another notch or
two.
I woke up one morning and
realized my ship had changed
course form the direction of my
heart.
I realized I needed once more
to shift my compass to getback on
track, and that constant vigilance
is needed to stay on course.
I have come to realize that
nothing tastes as good as being
healthy and whole feels.
It dawned on me that this was
very similar to sin in my life.
,My old damaging lifestyles can
erode my desired life-giving way
of life. Not that these lifestyles
were necessarily bad in them-
selves, but they were not good for
me.
For my better health, change
had to happen. There will be
times when I slip and stumble,
but I need to keep the bigger
picture in sight, and get back on
course.
The hardest part always seems
to be getting started.
Staying with it and not getting
discouraged is also difficult.
Let me share with you some
steps that I have found helpful:
for beginning and for staying on
course, not just in weight issues,
but in any issues which might
weigh us down.
First, I had to own I had a
problem and commit to doing
something about it.


Second, I made a searching
and brutally candid inventory of
my lifestyle (and eating habits)
and came to an honest account-
ing of what I wanted and needed
to change.
Third, I turned to God and
friends for help. I made a decision
to turn my will, my life, and EV-
ERY aspect of it over to the care
of God.
I admitted to God, to myself,
and others about my desires to
change, and humbly asked for
support.
I followed up with prayer and
commitments each morning and
sought continued help through-
out the day.
Change doesn't always occur
quickly. It takes time for a large
ship to turn around.
But even the longest journey
begins with, a single step. I found
that once started, blessings began
flowing which encouraged me to
keep going.
The same can happen for you.
No matter how far up or down
the scale we have gone, we can
know a new freedom and a new
happiness.
We can come to know the
peace that passes understanding.
Our whole attitudes and outlooks
upon life will change as we be-
come more whole and healthy,
and we realize even more that
we have a God who will do for us
and in us what we could not do
for ourselves.

making the best of it even when
things do not go well ... that is the
mind set,,the faith that carries us
through.
Paul summarized it all by put-
ting it in the context of "I can
do all things through Him that
strengthens me."
God will be there to strengthen
us and build on the roots that are
within us.
The idea" of "strengthening"
'suggests that there is already
something inside of us, and with-
in our capabilities now that will
be strengthened (not created or
added.)
What we have on hand, what
we've learned, real values that are
there already, get busy, do our part
and God will surely do His part.
Then the words can really be
of comfort and things will get
accomplished even at bad mo-
ments.

Steve Whidden

LaBelle, Florida 33935

Dear Mr. Whidden,

In March of 2005, as a courtesy to you I wrote a letter for you that was to
be used by you in applying for a Law Enforcement Officer. It has come to
my attention that you are using such a letter as a part of your political adver-
tisements strongly to inferring Hendry County voters that I am "support-
ing", "endorsing", or "recommending" you for Sheriff of Hendry County.
The use of such a letter without my written consent, constitutes a violation
of Florida's election laws, specifically Section 106.143 (3), Florida Statutes.
I have previously advised you to discontinue the use of this letter.

Such a letter, published in such a manner as it infers that I am supporting
you for office, commits fraud upon the voters of Hendry County since I have
previously advised you that I feel that you are not qualified to be Sheriff of
Hendry County. After leaving your employment with the Sheriff's Office, I
learned that you had filed a false employment application with the Sheriff's
Office as you failed to reveal on your application that you received some 10
traffic citations and that two traffic bench warrants for your arrest and one
civil court contempt order had been entered against you according to the
official records of Collier County and your City of Clewiston employment
application.

I have also learned through a memorandum contained in your file at the City
of Clewiston that you were removed from the'DEA Task Force for being inef-
fective and failing to produce cases. This memorandum to you was written
by the Clewiston, Florida Chief of Police.

I demand that you remove my letter from any and all political advertisement
used by you in your campaign.

manager.
"To bring someone cold tur-
key, who doesn't know the com-
munity, is not in the interest of
the community," he said. "When
finance director has obligations to
the city manager, is where things
get off-kilter."
When the issue was discussed
during the Aug. 21 regular meeting
of the city, and Mayor Mali Cham-
ness expressed concern about
"unintended consequences" of
the proposed charter, Mr. John-
son took issue and announced
he was resigning as city manager,


before leaving the chambers -- as
detailed in the minutes of that
meeting.
Mr. Johnson later returned, ex-
plaining that he took the concerns
as a show of "no confidence"
in him. The commission did not
accept his resignation and the
mayor apologized, still remaining
the lone dissenter in the eventual
4-1 vote to place the item on the
ballot.
"Something's wrong with this
picture," said Mr. Barwick.. "He
gets mad and quits; gets up and
walks out of the meeting. What
kind of behavior is that and are
you sure you want to give this guy
that authority?"
To ease concerns during the
Aug. 21 meeting, Mr. Johnson


said that the suggestion to update
the charter was offered by an in-
dependent group of citizens and a
former commission member.
But that won't ease Mr. Bar-
wvick's concerns. According to
him, a separate review of the
members serving on the group
found that the majority were un-
der the impression by City Man-
ager Johnson, who Mr. Barwick
said sat in on the meetings, that
the commission was in favor of
update.
He seems concerned that the
item will be lost in the election
confusion.
"You see an item that says yes
or no and we've got a 1947 char-
ter that needs to be updated, you
think, 'Sure, why not? It has to


be updated." Mr. Barwick said.
"This has been orchestrated to be
rushed through."
Somewhere in the middle is
someone like Commissioner Ju-
lio Rodriguez, who voted to place
the item on the ballot, but under-
stands that there are concerns re-
garding it by some.
"We put a good document to-
gether with a very capable work-
ing group that reviewed it and
helped put it together," Comimis-.
sioner.Rodriguez said. "Now it's
up to the voters."
Commissioner Rodriguez ex-
plained that he personally favors
having the manager determine
the day-to-day affairs, without
the commission interfering. As
commissioners, the board's mis-


sion is to set policy, not become
involved in daily affairs, he said.
"If voters don't feel good about
the charter, I recommend they
don't support it. But we do," the
commissioners said. "The time
now is to be united. If this doesn't


pass, we'll move and we'll re-
evaluate it two years from now."

The Calusa Indians of South Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The islands of intertwining
mangrove forest encircled the
large, calm bay, that shimmered
like a mirror under the hot 'af-
ternoon's sunny gaze. Images
of fleecy white clouds reflected
across the bay's surface, creating
fleeting mirages that faded quick-
ly as the drifting clouds floated
across the velvet blue sky.
A large school of mullet formed
a dark shadow just beneath the
surface that moved lazily along
the islands, creating thousands of
small slivery ripples that disrupted
the bay's serenity. The shadow
S changed shapes, flexing like a
contortionist as mullet swam and
fed among the small channels
that crisscrossed the bay.
There was total confusion
when the school of mullet struck
the floating net that stretched
across their path, forming an
impassable barrier. The twisting
shadow dissolved into thousands
of fleeing mullet, attempting to
escape the tentacles of the net
that held thrashing fish captive
in its deadly clutches. The fear
spread as paddles struck the sur-
face, echoing sounds of mayhem
to the depths below, sending
panic stricken mullet leaping and
dancing like ballerinas across the
water's turquoise surface. Others
dove deep: striking the net hard,
driving their heads into the invis-
ible net that entangled their gills
in its webbing. Their black, tor-
pedo shaped bodies, with glisten-
ing pearl white bellies, hung sus-
pended like insects in a watery,
spider web, spun by the Calusa
.Indians.
This story reflects the Calusa
Indian fishing culture which grew
to a complex society. Who were


the Calusa? Where did they live?
These questions will be answered
when we take "A Walk in The
Past" and step into the world of
the Calusa.
Christopher Columbus dis-
covered the New World in 1492.
He was searching for the East
Indies Spice Islands, which refers
to the South East Asian countries
(Malaysia, Philippines, etc.) that
supplied overland caravans with
many exotic spices, which were
destined for Europe. The Spice
caravans traveled through many
lands and hands, which made the
spices very expensive. Their cost
was so prohibitive that only the
wealthy could afford them. Some
of the exotic spices that we take
for granted today were: black
pepper, nutmeg, and cinnamon.
Columbus's.maritime expedition
was to find the East Indies Spice
Islands, purchase spices, and
return to Spain with ships laden
with spices worth a king's ran-
som.
When Columbus sighted the
Bahamas on his firsf trip, he saw
brown skinned people that had
Asiatic features. The people living
in the Bahamas were called the
Arawaks, a friendly people that
were very peaceful. He named
them Indians because he thought
they were natives of the East In-
dies. The word "Indian" became
a name synonymous with all in-
digenous people living in North
America, Central America and
South America.
The Spanish explorers, fol-
lowing in Columbus's wake,
conquered and settled the many
Caribbean Islands, making slaves
of the peaceful Arawak Indians
and the warlike Carib Indians
that the Caribbean Sea is named
after. Some of those conquered


Islands are known today as Hai-
ti, Dominican Republic, Puerto
Rica and Cuba. The vast wealth
of silver and gold plundered by
Cortez, when he conquered the
Aztec empire, prompted other
ambitious men to cast their eyes
to new horizons on the North
American Continent.
Ponce De Leon, an adventurer
on Columbus's second voyage
and later governor of Puerto Rica,
received a commission from the
king of Spain to form an expedi-
tion and explore.the North Ameri-
can coast. In 1513, he sailed along
the Florida coast as far north as
present day St. Augustine, re-
turned south and then sailed
northwest as far as Charlotte
Harbor, where he encountered
the Calusa Indians. The warlike
Calusa attacked the ships with
approximately 80 canoes. The
battle lasted all day until Ponce.
De Leon withdrew from the area.
He made two important discover-
ies on this voyage: La Florida and
theGulf Stream. -
In .1521, he formed a second
expedition and sailed to the Char-
lotte Harbor vicinity to establish
a Spanish colony. The Calusa
attacked, forcing Ponce De Leon
and the colony to flee to the ships.
Ponce De Leon was wounded
and died in Cuba as a result of his
injuries.
The Calusa Indians were a
fierce, warlike people living on
the southwest coast of Florida.
Their warring nature dominated
the 'neighboring Indian nations
that lived in south Florida. These
nations paid the Calusa tribute,
which was usually in hides and
food. This later changed to gold
and silver, when the Spanish start-
ed shipping huge loads of these
precious metals from the Indian


empires they had conquered.
The Spanish ships sailing from
Mexico to Spain followed the Gulf
Stream, which flows along the
present Gulf Coast states of Texas,
Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama
and Florida. The ships stopped
first in Havana, Cuba for repairs
and provisions before continuing '
their voyage to Spain. They sailed
from Havana to Spain, following
a northerly route that required the
ships to sail through the treacher-
ous Florida Straits and follow the
Gulf Stream along the east coast
of Florida as far north as Cape Ca-
naveral, where they turned east
across the Atlantic to Spain. Many
Spanish ships that followed these
routes were lost or wrecked by
storms on the east and west coast
of Florida.
The shipwrecked survivors on
the southwest coast of Florida
were enslaved and sometimes
.sacrificed by the Calusa. Escal-
ante Fontaneda experienced ship-'
wreck and 17 years of slavery at
the hands of the Calusa. His writ-
ten memoirs, and those of other
Calusa captives, will be told in
next week's edition of "A Walk in
The Past."
