Students learn
about issues,
qualifications

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Standing op-
posite each other at Clewiston
High School's cafeteria last
week, both county sheriff can-
didates did their best to answer
some of the toughest questions
they've faced from constituents
throughout their run for office.
Except this time the ques-
tions didn't come from your
usual concerned citizens; they
came from Edison College's
Mass Communications Class
-- whose many students were
experiencing their first partici-
pation in an election through
direct involvement.
And direct questioning.
Incumbent Sheriff Ronnie
Lee and challenger Steve Whid-
den took turns answering ques-
tions, at times picking apart
each other's arguments. Stu-
dents stood up, one at a time,
to ask questions, from a list of
important issues.
';'The older you get, the
more philosophical you get,"
Shehff Lee told the audience
in response to rumors and al-


legations leveled about his age.
"I'm not an old man and I'm
very capable of making an ar-
rest myself."
And then there was the op-
posing side.
"I've seen issues with man-
agement that I do not agree
with," said Mr. Whidden.
"That's not satisfactory in my
book."
Meanwhile, the students
took in the responses and the
'faces of some lit up when an
especially difficult issue was
raised.
Lee concentrated on meet-
ing the challenges of a shrink-
ing budget through creative ap-
proaches (i.e. hiring part-time
deputies, shifting duties), while
Whidden believed that the fu-
ture well-being of the 'depart-
ment lies in proper training' of
deputies, and a re-structuring
of the "top-heavy" make-up of
the organization.
Both agreed that drugs and
alcohol are the major problems
affecting the youth, and.prom-
ised to have a greater pres-
ence throughout the county's
schools.
Regarding providing better
.pay to attract capable deputies,
Whidden explained that, as an
officer, no one would appreci-
ate better pay more than him,

Eastside's Medieval Celebration


Royal Feast proves
more than
elementary
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON--Here Ye, Here
Ye!
Came one?
No.
Came all to Eastside Elemen-
tary School's "A Royal Feast," a
celebration of Medieval Times.
, Princes and princesses,
knights and jesters, minstrels'
and monks all gathered for the
royal feast on Thursday night. As
local school bands fiddled music
of the Middle Ages, elementary-


aged attendants gathered me-
lodiously in preparation for the
evening's affair.
Tables and more tables came
together offering a smorgasbord
of grub including hearty chicken
wings, hot baked potatoes, fresh
garden salad and the ever succu-
lent, all American, hotdogs and
potato chips. And who better to
rustle-up this "Fancy Feast" but
none other than the parents.
That's right. The food was pre-
pared and served by the PTO.
Following the feast came the
Royal Entertainment in which
each grade had,role. The kinder-
garten class, for example, began
with a song, 'Work Out to Letter
Sounds."
First graders followed with


"Sing a Song of Sixpence." Next
were the second graders who
presented Royal Poetry. The third
graders hosted reader's theater:
"The Medieval Banquet." After
which, the fourth graders intro-
duced the Jumping Jesters' Jam.
And finally, Mrs. Stein's Fifth
Grade play, "Ella and The King's
Jesters" and Jester Tumblers
capped off the entertainment.
Each year at Eastside, the staff
and students assemble to come
up with a theme for the year.,
"This year we are studying
about Medieval Times," says
Mary Duke, host of the evening.
Duke is the principal of Eastside
Elementary and has been since
2001.
"We've done this ec-iN yearr"


she said.
Duke ek-plains that this is one
of the many ways Eastside gets
kids involved while simultane-
ously educating them.
"There are so few things in
the community for the kids to
do. We want our kids to come
to school and be excited about
learning."
Another staff member deco-
rated the area with miniature
castles, all hand-made by the
students. She interjects.
"The kids have just had a ball
and they have been so excited
this week. It's like Christmas."
The entire wing of the school
is decorated in an imaginative
yet realistic castle theme.
Duke is extremely proud of


the hard work and effort her staff
and students have contributed.
"Every classroom is a room
in the castle and each classroom
did it's own decorations."
The evening was an enchant-
ed one for parents, students and
staff members alike. But no one
was more proud than Principal
Duke herself who gave a tour of
the entire decorated facility.
"We have a different theme
every year and we look forward
to next year," she said.
Eastside Elementary wants to
extend special thanks to the local
businesses for all their donations
and support in making this night
a royal occasion.

Anything is Possible


Local teachers
believe in finding a
cure
Countless fund-raising dol-
lars, early morning training
hours, jet lag from a long flight,
tortuous hills to climb, and an,
endless 26.2 mile marathon all'
paid off at the finish line.
Clewiston High Schools
teachers and coaches Keri Al-
ford and Holly Bach proved
that with their own motivation
and determination anything is
possible.
Over the past five months


Keri and Holly have been train-
ing for the Nike Women's Mar-
athon, held in San Francisco,
Calif., with the Team in Training
program.
Starting with a beginner 20-
minute run, they worked up to
running 2'0 miles prior to the
event, with -the help of their
Team in Training coach and
teammates.
They ran an estimated 500
miles throughout their training,
leading up to the day of Oct. 19,
when they braved the 26.2 mile
marathon.
They were 20,000 partici-
pants at the Nike Women's


Marathon, with 20 wonmeln itC

Out of those paiincipanIs,
more than 5,000 were running
on behalf of the Tean in Ti;iin-
ing program, whose ullimaile.
goal was to raise funds for the
Leukemia and Lymphoma So-'
ciety.
Over 18 million dollars was
raised, this year alone, at the
marathon; over the past five
years, they have nearly reached
$90 million dollars.
This marathon not only rais-
es funds for the Leukemia and
Lymphoma, but it is also meant

was about the November 4th bal-

ager to prepare a new City Charter
and the Manager communicated
"openly and equally" all aspects
of the process to the City.Com-
mission. The Commission voted
"unanimously" to approve the
charter on first reading during
regular session in July 2008 with
knowledge of further review by a
citizen Charter Review Commit-
tee before the final public hear-
ing of August 2008. The Charter
Review Committee held three (3)
public meetings during July and
August 2008 to review the Char-
ter. The Commission had ample
time for preliminary review of the
document starting in June 2008
and ample time to consider the
"positive" recommendation (Au-
gust 12, 2008) of the Charter Re-
view Committee. The final Com-
mission action was on August 21,
2008 by majority (4-1) approval
to accept the Charter and place it
on the November ballot for voter
consideration. From the begin-
ning, the City Commission was
united in initiating the effort to
establish a new city charter. The
need was apparent to bring an
outdated charter into compliance
with current operational practices
and state statutes to enhance our
history of good governance and
civic excellence. Appropriately,
the Commission sought a docu-
ment that maintained legislative
control and. respect for elected
authority while acknowledging
the valued importance of pro-
fessional leadership in our city
operations. Contrary to the be-
lief of the Concerned Citizens of
Clewiston Committee, the City
has functioned for many years
in practice and theory under the
exact method proposed by the
new charter. In other words, "this
is the way we do it now" and the
way it has been done for several
years Clewiston is a Commis-
sion-Manager Government Form.
Our present City Commis-
sion, City Manager, the City Staff,
and numerous citizen volunteer
leaders have done an outstand-
ing job for the City of Clewiston
for the last several years. We have
survived three hurricanes, built
a new water plant, built a new
commerce park, a new Public
Utilities Facility, a new Animal
Control Facility, completed count-
less other community projects,
improved community services
and improved property standard
laws. Your City has received over
$15 million in grant money over
the last six years to do most of
these things and the City has pros-
pered and moved forward more
progressively than ever in its his-
tory. We believe this "outstand-
ing" success must be attributed
to a spirit of "teamwork" in op-
erating the City as a Commission-
Manager Government Form.
Citizens, your City Commis-


sion has a strong faith in the elec-
torate of this city to decide what
is best for our shared future as
emerging needs and unexpected
threats arise. We are committed
that the proposed charter will
serve as the foundation for con-
tinued success and will preserve
the rights of all future city officials,
both elected and appointed; that
it will preserve your citizen rights
to continued quality in city servic-
es and a high quality of life.
Citizens, we as named below,
urge you to vote "Yes" on the pro-
posed City Charter Referendum.

Editor's Note: Mayor Mali
Chamness, whose name does
not appear in the previous letter,
asked that her position on this
matter be made public: She voted

Your Sheriff
Dear Editor,
I was fortunate to visit Clewis-
ton and Hendry County while va-
cationing doing what most of us
Kentuckians do when we want to
get away, that's "Fish."
I was brought up in a farm-
ing family but choose the path of
wearing a badge and that's what
leads me to write to you.
I had the pleasure of meeting
Sheriff Ronnie Lee, he impressed
me by what he was doing to fight
drugs in your county and I wit-
nessed first hand a High School
where drug dogs searched ve-
hicles and students being brought
out to recover marijuana and oth-
er drugs from their vehicles while
on your school grounds.
I don't make it a habit of riding
in patrol cars when on vacation.
I can tell you sometimes the job
will follow you anywhere you go
when you're the Sheriff. I always
like to know the area I'm in and
usually the locals know the best
places to fish and eat.
I am the Sheriff of Wood-
ford County, Kentucky with 23
years in law enforcement and a
firm believer in the Drug Abuse
Resistance Education program
known as D.A.R.E. We need to
protect our children from drugs.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee showed me
that he was committed to getting
drugs out of our schools and off
the streets of Hendry County by
his actions and after speaking to
some of his deputies.
The agriculture heritage in
Hendry County and the history of
it, I was in awe at the Sugar Cane
operations from start to finish
product. After finishing some of
his duties Sheriff Ronnie Lee vol-
unteered to show me everything
from planting to harvesting t\he
cane.
I would like the citizens of
Hendry County to know that one
of your greatest ambassadors
wears a gun and a badge and his
name is Ronnie Lee. It was an
honor to visit your county, and I
look forward to returning to catch
some oscars.
Thank you for the visit,
Wayne "Tiny" Wright
Woodford County Sheriff

Halloween Health and Safety Tips


Ways to keep you
and your family safe
for the holiday

For many people, autumn
events like Halloween and Har-
vest Day are fun times to dress up
in costumes, go trick-or-treating,
attend parties, and eat yummy
treats.
These events are also opportu-
nities to provide nutritious snacks,
get physical activity, and focus on
safety.
Below are tips to help make
the festivities fun and safe for
trick-or-treaters and party guests.
Going trick-or-treating?
*Swords, knives, and similar
costume accessories should be
short, soft, and flexible.
*Avoid trick-or-treating alone.
Walk in groups or with a trusted
adult.


*Fasten reflective tape to cos-
tumes and bags to help drivers
see you.
*Examine all treats for chok-
ing hazards and tampering before
eating them. Limit the amount of
treats you eat.
*Hold a flashlight while trick-
or-treating to help you see and
others see you.

*Always test make-up in a
small area first. Remove it before
bedtime to prevent skin and eye
irritation.

Look both ways before cross-
ing the street. Use established
crosswalks wherever possible.
Lower your risk for serious
eye injury by not wearing decora-
tive contact lenses.

*Only walk on sidewalks.or
on the far edge of the road facing
traffic to stay safe.


*Wear well-fitting masks,
costumes, and shoes to avoid
blocked vision, trips, and falls.
*Eat only factory-wrapped
treats. Avoid eating homemade
treats unless you know the cook
well.

*Enter homes only if you're
with a trusted adult. Otherwise,
stay outside.

*Never walk near lit candles
or luminaries. Be sure to wear
flame-resistant costumes.

Expecting trick-or-treaters or
party guests?
Provide healthier treats for
trick-or-treaters, such as individ-
ual packs of raisins, trail mix, or
pretzels. For party guests, offer a
variety of fruits, vegetables, and
cheeses.
Use party games and trick-or-
treat time as an opportunity for
kids to get their daily dose of 60


minutes of physical activity.
Be sure walking areas and
stairs are well-lit and free of ob-
stacles that could result in falls.
Keep candle-lit jack-o'-lanterns
and luminaries away from door-
steps, walkways, landings, and
curtains.
Place them on sturdy tables,
keep them out of the reach of
pets and small children, and nev-
er leave them unattended.
Remind drivers to watch out
for trick-or-treaters and to drive
safely.
Follow these tips to help make
the festivities fun and safe for ev-
eryone!

Paid and Approved Political Advertising by John M. Dyess, John M. Dyess Campaign, Republican, for Supervisor of Elections of Glades County.


DEA Representatives Marie Pikiell and Shawn McDonough were here in
Clewiston Friday April 13 to discuss issues with the Task Force.

In short we have been asked to relinquish our place on the DEA Task Force
due to inactivity and lack of case filings by you.

They were quick to point out your efforts and accomplishments on the
Jamaican case and are grateful for your work there, but were mostly con-
cerned that there were few'initiations made by you and have been none at all
for some time. Both pointed out your willingness to come when called upon,
but feel the position would be better served by someone'.able to contribute by
opening / filing cases.

Therefore, you are directed to make arrangements with Agent Pikidll to turn in
any property belonging to DEA and make yourself available for any necessary
debriefings. This should be done during the week of April 23 27. Once you
have completed that process you should contact Assi'stant Chief Petersen for
reassignment here in Clewiston.

Of course deference should be made in these issues in accordance with your
medical appointments and limitations.

Facts about High Blood Pressure


By Glenda Wilson
With approximately 58 million
(one in four) American adults suf-
fering -from high blood pressure,
how do you know for certain if
you're at risk? Hendry Regional
Medical Center wants you to arm
yourself with the facts about high
blood pressure.
Understanding blood
pressure.
High blood pressure, also
known as hypertension, occurs
when the force (or pressure) of
blood against your artery walls is
too great, causing excessive strain
on your blood vessels. This con-
dition is dangerous because of
the damaging effects that accrue
over time. This damage may not
become apparent until an individ-
ual's blood pressure is shockingly
high. That's why hypertension is
sometimes known as a "silent
killer."
What causes high blood
pressure?
Several factors are known to
.increase blood pressure, or pri-
mary hypertension, including a
personal or family history of high
blood pressure, obesity, heavy
alcohol use, high sodium intake,
and aging. A sedentary lifestyle,
excess stress, low potassium in-
take, low calcium intake, and re-
sistance to insulin may also cause
high blood pressure.
High blood pressure due to a
medical condition or a side effect
from medication is known as sec-
ondary hypertension. However,
elevated blood pressure may not
always indicate high blood pres-
sure per se. For some people,
just being in a medical setting
or having their blood pressure
measured by a doctor causes
their blood pressure to rise; this is
called white-coat hypertension.
How is blood pressure
measured?
- To measure blood pressure,
your doctor uses an instrument
call a "sphygmomanometer,"


more often referred to as a blood against your artery walls, when

INFORMATION FOR CLEWISTON VOTERS
On November 4, 2008, the City of Clewiston will present a referendum on the
Hendry County General Election Ballot to adopt a new City Charter. The current
charter is outdated and/or superseded by Florida law. A citizen "Charter Review
Committee" reviewed the proposed new charter during a series of public meet-
ings and gave unanimous support for its approval by the Clewiston City
Commission. The City Commission adopted Ordinance 2008-04 on August 21,
2008. The referendum will appear on the November Election Ballot in the fol-
lowing format:

S Clewiston City Charter Referendum

The Clewiston City Charter was enacted by Special Laws of Florida in 1925 and
was last amended in 1947. The Charter is outdated and/or superseded by the
General Laws of Florida. The Commission has concluded that the adoption of a
new Charter is in the best interest of the citizens of Clewiston.


Shall the City Commission repeal the existing Charter amended in 1947 and
enact a new City Charter for the City ofClewiston? Yes __ No

In approving Ordinance 2008-04, the City Commission committed their support
that enactment of a new charter will serve the public interest as beneficial to "good
governance" for the City of Clewiston far into the future. VOTER SUPPORT
FOR THE NEW CHARTER IS ENCOURAGED AND APPRECIATED.
For questions regarding the charter, please call (863) 83-1484. A copy of the pro-
posed Charter is available for inspection at Clewiston City Hall, 115 W Ventura
Avenue, Clewiston, FL.


VOTE "NO" ON CITY CHARTER

* HISTORIC PERFORMANCE OF CLEWISTON CITY MANAGERS DOES NOT JUSTIFY
THIS SWEEPING DELEGATION OF AUTHORITY

* WOULD ELIMINATE CHECKS AND BALANCES NEEDED TO ENSURE PROPER
OPERATION OF THE CITY

* WOULD INCREASE CITY PAYROLL COSTS

* WOULD CONSTRICT COMMISSIONERS FROM MEETING AND TALKING WITH
CITY EMPLOYEES

* CURRENT CITY CHARTER IS NOT TRULY A '1947' DOCUMENT, AS PORTRAYED BY
THE CITY'S AD, BECAUSE IT HAS BEEN UPDATED BY CITY ORDINANCES OVER
THE YEARS

* WOULD ALLOW HIRING AND DISMISSAL OF CHIEF OF POLICE, FINANCE
DIRECTOR AND OTHER DEPARTMENT HEADS WITHOUT COMMISSIONER
INVOLVEMENT

foodborne illness outbreaks prior
to 2000 when the state enacted a
proactive measure that required
Florida restaurants to train all
employees who touch, handle

Since the initiation of this require-
ment, the restaurant-specific and
overall food/waterborne illness
numbers have decreased sub-
stantially.
"I think the correlation be-
tween the huge decrease in the

breats and the mandatory training

we have something important to
teach that will really affect busi-

ers, and we believe that this train-
ing should be as inexpensive as

Florida is the only state that
has enacted a requirement for
restaurant employees to become
trained in food safety.
Some organizations continue
to claim that Florida has the high-
est number of reported foodborne
illness outbreaks in the Country,
but state officials say that this
claim is not accurate because un-
like other states, Florida reports
both suspected and confirmed
outbreaks.


By Brenda Barnes
Get ready everyone, 'tis the
season, flu season I mean. Yearly
flu vaccinations should begin in
September or as soon as the vac-
cine is available.
People can start getting the flu
as early as October, but it usu-
ally peaks in January. The flu vi-
ruses are usually spread when
an infected person doesn't cover
their mouth when they cough or
sneeze. Sometimes people get in-
fected from touching something
with flu viruses on it.
Then before they get a chance
to wash their hands, they end
up touching their nose, eyes, or
mouth and "presto," you have
just infected yourself with the flu
virus!
Hand washing is a great way
to help protect yourself. Wash
your hands often and try not to
touch your face (don't rub those
tired eyes until you've washed
your hands!). Be sure to cover
your mouth when you cough or
sneeze. Don't use your hand!
Use a tissue, or get into the
habit of coughing and sneezing
into the bend of your arm. Try to
keep your distance frpm anyone
that's sick, and if you're the one
who's sick, keep your distance
from others or stay home!
Some symptoms of flu can in-
clude fever, headache, extreme
tiredness, dry cough, sore throat,


runny or stuffy nose, and muscle
aches.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention,
people can infect others starting
1 day before symptoms develop
and up to 5 days after becoming
sick.
That means you might actually
pass on the flu to someone else
before you even know that you
are sick! The best way to prevent
the flu is to get a flu shot each fall.
When you start seeing pumpkins,
it's time to get your flu shot! Some
people think that you can get the
flu from the shot, but the viruses


in the flu shot are killed (inactivat-
ed), so you can't get the flu from
getting a flu shot!
There are some minor effects
that can occur and generally only
last a couple of days. Some effects
can include mild soreness, red-
ness or swelling in the area where
the shot was given.
Or some may experience a low
grade fever and mild body aches,
but most people that get a flu shot
have no serious problems from it.
Talk to your doctor about recom-
mendations for getting a flu shot.
Remember, be healthy and be
happy!

Tigers Whip Pope John Paul II


Submitted to INI/Jeff Barwick
Running back Joey Cordova breaks loose for a 17 yard
gain.


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston used the running
of tailback Darris Hughes and
passing of quarterback Isandro
Marquez to rack up a District 2A-6
win over the Eagles at slippery
Cane Field on Friday night.
The Tigers improved to 5-2
overall and 2-0 in district play.
Hughes rolled for 154 yards
rushing on 16 carries and touch-
down runs of 1 and 13 yards.
Marquez turned in his best
passing performance of the sea-
son with 9 completions on 13
throws for 173 yards and 2 touch-
downs.
Wideout Damion Smith scored
on a 48-yard catch and run and
tight end Julio Ramos posted the
other score on a 25-yard recep-
tion.
The Tigers took the opening
kickoff and marched 65 yards in 7
plays with 30 and 24 yard passes
from Marquez to wideout Damian
Smith highlighting the effort.
Clewiston went to a Wildcat
formation with Jamarcus Smith
deep. Smith rushed up the mid-
dle for 7 yards but lost the ball at
the Eagles' two-yard line.
On their first snap, the Eagles
were slapped with a safety as
linebacker Dillon Irey smashed
into the backfield and tackled the
runner in the end zone.
After an exchange of punts,
Clewiston stayed on the ground
with Hughes reeling off dashes of


13, 36 and then the final 13 yards
to score.
The point after snap was
mishandled forcing Marquez to
attempt a run conversion that
failed. The first period ended
with a steady drizzle and the Ti-
gers sporting an 8-0 lead.
Clewiston scored again early
in the second period on a one
yard dive by Hughes, capping an
8 play, 50 yard drive.
Hughes had runs of 24 and
11 yards in the drive and fullback
Joey Cordova added an impres-
sive 17-yard smash.
The Eagles came back with a
passing attack drive and scored
with 3:22 left in the half on a 19
yard pass from quarterback Troy
Leib to flanker Chris Zebart.
Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino smashed through and
blocked his fourth placekick of
the season.
Clewiston came roaring right
back and scored in less than 60
seconds of clock time, covering
55 yards in 2 snaps.
Hughes got 7 yards on an
off-tackle run and then Marquez
hooked up with Damion Smith
on a textbook 48 yard scoring
pass. The Tigers went to halftime
with a 21-6 advantage.
Clewiston slapped two more
touchdowns on the scoreboard
in the third period.
Tiger defender Ricky Marti-
nez picked off a tipped pass and


returned it 7 yards to the Eagles'
38.
Four rushes later found full-
back Leonard Newton hitting pay
dirt from 2 yards out.
The Tiger defense then held
the Eagles forcing a short punt
and got the ball back for the of-
fense at the Eagles' 45.
After 3 rushing plays, Marquez
found tight end Julio Ramos open
in the end zone for a 25-yard scor-
ing play.
From that point in the game,
Hughes, Marquez and other Tiger
starters sat out most of the sec-
ond half as Coach Joe Roth gave
his back-ups game experience.
Pope John Paul II got their fi-
nal score of the night when cor-
nerback Joey Grosso picked off
an errant pass from Jonathan
Brown and returned it 49 yards
for a touchdown.
Defensively, Clewiston held
the Eagles to a minus 27 yards
rushing and no first downs.
The passing defense was not
as stingy but managed to keep
the Eagles' game under control.
The Tigers will host district ri-
val Inlet Grove this Friday at Cane
Field.
The foes are sporting an over-
all 6-1 record and have matched
the Tigers' district record of 2-0.
This game will likely deter-
mine which team will be the dis-
trict champion.
Tiger tailback Darris Hughes
has now rushed for 1,414 yards
on 128 tries, an 11-yard average
per carry.
He enters this week's contest
only 113 yards short of Thomas
Washington's 1990 all-time sea-
son Tiger rushing record.
Hughes is also ranked fourth
in rushing for the entire state
and one rusher ahead of him has
played one additional game.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 15



Five different types of people, who are you?:


By Jackie Miller
Someone has said there are
five kinds of people in the world.
I suppose the same is true of the
church.
1. Those who don't know
what's happening. Even in this
day of mass communications,
you'd be surprised at how many
people do not know what is going
on, and have never been aware
of what the nation or church is
all about. These people refuse to
educate themselves in these mat-
ters of great importance. They are
lazy and depend on others to do
all the hard work.


2. Those who don't care what's
happening. These are the people
who attend the game, but don't
care who wins. They don't vote
because the don't think it mat-
ters who is elected. This is the age
of indiffence. Many are uncon-
cerned about all the problems of
society, as long as it doesn't affect
them personally. But when it does
- Watch Out!
3.Those who try to keep things
from happening. Like the story of
the two guys on the tamdem bi-
cycle. Going up the hill the guy
in front was pumping for all he
was worth. Sweating profusely at


the top he told his friend, "Man,
I didn't think we were going to
make it." "Neither did I", the
other guy said, "So I kept my feet
on the brakes all the way up!" We
have people like this in the nation
and church.
4. Those who watch things
happen. This is where the majori-
ty are. Just spectators! After things
get going they want to jump on
the band-wagon. We can look
at other nations and churches
where dynamic growth is taking
place and wish it were ours, but
there have to be people with per-
sonal dedication and willingness-


es to work to make it happen!
Like the preacher said, "I've got a
willing church...a few are willing
to work...and the rest are willing
to let them!"
5. Those who make things hap-
pen. By far the smallest crowd,
but what a difference they make
in our world! Abraham, Moses,
Daniel, Paul, Peter, and John.
The world and the church is a
better place because they have
been there! YOU can be that kind
of person! Start right now! Start
small, but plan BIG! You and God
will make a wonderful team!


Floridians warned about child identity theft


TALLAHASSE-In recognition
of National Protect Your Identity
Week, Attorney General Bill Mc-
Collum issued a consumer advi-
sory warning Floridians about the
crime of child identity theft. The
Attorney General cautioned par-
ents to be vigilant in protecting
their children's personal informa-
tion and to report any potential ID
theft to law enforcement.
Although statistics are not kept
on identity theft victims under 18,
estimates indicate the crime im-
pacts more than 500,000 children
nationally each year.
"Often, a child and his or her
parents won't realize the theft
has occurred until the child is
an adult," said Attorney General
McCollum. "I believe this crime
happens far more frequently than
is reported, and parents need to
take steps to ensure their child is
protected."
A recent study conducted by


the nonprofit Identity Theft Re-
source Center found children
are most often targeted between
the ages of zero to five years old.
Unfortunately, the ID thieves may
often be the parents themselves,
or relatives who have access to a
child's social security number. A
common practice associated with
this crime is for adults to their
child's social security number to
secure utilities for a home. This
generates credit card offers in
the child's name, and parents or
guardians may sometimes then
open lines of credit.
Technology also plays a role in
the ID theft of children. Children
who use the internet sometimes
post personal information online,
which can be accessed through
a wireless network. Children can
also become victims of "phish-
ing" scams, defined as an attempt
by an unscrupulous person to ob-
tain sensitive information such as


usernames, passwords or credit
card information via e-mail by
pretending to be a trustworthy
entity, like a bank or government
agency..
Tips to protect children from
identity theft include:
Try to limit the use of your
child's Social Security number
(SSN) and do not carry around
your child's Social Security card
in your purse or wallet.
Make sure the child's school
ID card does not require a date of
birth or social security number.
Watch for mail that may
come in your child's name. If
he or she receives credit card of-
fers, you should investigate the
source.
Warn your child about giv-
ing out their personal informa-
tion while online and monitor the
websites your child visits.
Penalties for parents or guard-
ians convicted of child ID theft are


stronger than for those convicted
of the ID theft of an adult. The
parent or guardian could face a
prison term of up to 15 years.
Parents who believe their
child's identity has been stolen
should immediately file a report
with local police or the law en-
forcement agency where the
crime took place, if known. They
should also contact all threecredit
bureaus separately and report
the id theft of a minor. Consum-
ers who believe they may be vic-
tims of identity theft or fraud may
contact the Attorney General's
fraud hotline at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM
(1-866-966-7226) or file a com-
plaint online at http://myflorida-
legal.com. Additional information
about identity theft, tips to protect
individuals, and recovery informa-
tion is available online at: http://

Safemink Wireless to assist low income callers


Participants receive over an
hour of free talk time monthly
and free wireless cell phone
TracFone Wireless, Inc., Amer-
ica's leading prepaid cell phone
provider has launched SafeLink
Wireless in Florida. SafeLink
Wireless will serve as the com-
pany's distribution of Lifeline a
U.S. government supported pro-
gram for income eligible house-
holds that ensures telephone ser-
vice is available and affordable for
eligible low income households.
The SafeLink Wireless service
will provide eligible low-income
households a free cell phone, mo-
bile access to emergency services
and free 68 minutes of air time,
monthly, for one year. The cell
phone.offers in-demand features:
voicemail, text, call waiting, inter-
national calling to over 60 desti-
nations and caller ID.
"Over one million households
in Florida qualify for the Lifeline
services offering these partici-
pants the opportunity to have the
same access and privileges many
individuals take for granted when
it comes to using cell phones,"
said Javier Rosado, Senior Vice
President of Lifeline Services for
TracFone. "The SafeLink Wireless
service is truly unique because
we are providing a service that no
other company has made avail-
able before a free cell phone
and free monthly minutes to
qualifying low income families,"
added Rosado. SafeLink Wireless
offers low income families acces-
sibility, freedom and the security
in knowing that should an emer-
gency occur wherever they are,
they will stay safe and stay con-
nected.
Economic opportunities for
low-income households
A recent study ("Cell Phones
Provide Significant Economic


Gains for Low-Income American
Households," April 2008) ana-
lyzed the impact of mobile phones
on low-income households. "In
this day and age, the cell phone
should be deemed an imperative
necessity for the millions of low-
income families who are far less
likely to own them," said Nicho-
las P. Sullivan, the study's author
and visiting scholar at Massachu-
setts Institute of Technology. "Our
study showed cell phones can
significantly boost the earning
potential of these communities,
and this connectivity vastly en-
courages their opportunities and
remains central to their everyday
survival," Mr. Sullivan stressed.
The study also revealed the cell
phone is a critical component for
personal safety, access to emer-
gency services, and can potential-
ly increase a low-income family's
economic productivity and earn-
ing power. Other relevant survey
findings included:
Cell phones provide a "secu-
rity blanket" and are "extremely
important" for "emergency use."
A cell phone is preferred
to a landline phone for mobil-
ity and security purposes, and is
preferred to a landline phone for
emergency use by 3-1 ratio.
48% have used their phone
to call or text during an emergen-
cy situation.
20% have received an emer
agency call or text on their cell
phone.
32% have purchased a cell
phone for a relative to use in
emergency situations.
40% in blue-collar jobs say
their cell phone has provided the
opportunity to gain employment
or make money.
Daily, millions of Americans
depend on mobile telecommuni-
cations for a wide range of basic


activities including: calling emer-
gency services, searching for
employment, staying connected
with loved ones, and much more.
Yet, for people who cannot afford
cell phones, being part of today's
connected world and performing
these crucial day-to-day needs is
near impossible. Typically, fami-
lies living below the poverty line
struggle to pay their monthly bills,
experience credit issues, and can-
hot afford traditional home phone
and wireless services. Using pub-
lic pay phones regularly pose
problems and cell phone con-
tracts often are difficult to main-
tain due to costly usage charges
over long-term agreements. As a
result, regular communications is
a major dilemma for these fami-
lies.

Program Eligibility
Lifeline program eligibility var-
ies by state but generally families
may qualify for SafeLink Wireless
service if their household income
is not above 135 percent of the
federal poverty income guide-
lines, or if they receive any of the
following government assistance
programs:
SMedicaid
SSupplemental Security In-
come (SSI).
Low-Income Home Energy
Assistance Program (LIHEAP)
National School Lunch Pro-
gram
Federal Public Housing Assis-
tance (Section 8)
SFood Stamps
STemporary Assistance to
Needy Families (TANF)

jncome qualification such as:

payroll statements, or paycheck
stubs for 2008

A retirement/pension state-
ment of benefits
An Unemployment/Work-
men's Compensation state of
benefits
A federal notice letter of par-
ticipation in General Assistance
A divorce decree, child sup-
port, or other official document
that proves your income The
SafeLink Wireless service will be
provided to low-income families
for up to one year. Participants
may renew service and will be
required to re-submit eligibility
documentation upon their year
completion. If the participant no
longer qualifies for this free ser-
vice, they will be notified and will
be able to keep the cell phone to

as a regular TracFone customer.

Creepy Crawly things that invade your computer


By Diane Timmons
IN1 Florida
Unfriendly things like viruses,
worms, spyware and the oc-
casional trojan can invade your
computer in a variety of ways and
cause problems for you. They
can hitch a ride on an email at-
tachment. You can visit a site or
download a file that has an at-
tached virus. A computer virus is
a malicious, intentionally created
mini program by a hacker, that
is meant to mess up your com-
puter.
Quote Out...
"Viruses are malicious, inten-
tionally created mini-programs
from hackers wanting to mess up
others' computers."

com
End quote out
Then how do they show them-
selves? Your computer might slow
way down. You might get a stub-
born pop-up that won't go away.
Your friends may tell you that you
sent them a strange email when
you know you didn't. Some mis-
chief viruses will take your entire
email contact list and send out an
email on your behalf. You may be
working in an application and it
crashes repeatedly for no appar-
ent reason. You may find new
addresses in your email contacts
that you know you didn't add.
A few years ago a local com-


puter repairman advised me to
use two different programs to
help keep the viruses away or at
least under control. Since then
when I read up on things that can
infect a computer and how to pro-
tect it, these two programs are al-
ways spoken of with great regard.
Why do you need two programs
for virus protection? Because they
protect against different kinds of
viruses. You get better coverage
with two programs. Each of the
following virus scan programs
can be downloaded from the In-
ternet.
AVG Anti-Virus; for home use
can be downloaded free, but
in my opinion, the full-featured
version is a good buy and worth-
while. It scans in real time and
will update as needed provided
you set us the application that
way. I suggest you do.
Avast Anti-Virus Home Edition
is free for non-commercial, home
use. Look for the FREE version 4.
They also offer free virus removal
tools if you know the name of the
virus you are fighting.
Norton Anti-Virus and anti
spyware, I have heard complaints
from some that,if you ever try to
deinstall Norton you will not be
successful. It is the program of
choice for many businesses and
individuals. However, I do not use


Download and install
software
You will only need to actually
download and install this software
once and then your anti-virus soft-
ware will run in the background
until you need to update. I'm go-
ing to go into detail today about
how to actually get software off
the. Internet for those who may
not have done this before.
Go to one of the web sites
noted above. There is usually a
button or a link that clearly says
"Download." When you click it a
box comes up asking if you want
to run or save the software. Since
you are probably, downloading
an installation file, my suggestion
is that you click "save." Pause a
moment here. You must decide
where the file will save. Don't
leave this to chance or you may
not be able to find it.
Create a new file folder in your
My Documents called Down-
loads. Save the installation file in
your new downloads folder. This
is so you can find it when it is time
to install the program. Actually in-
stalling the anti-virus software is
the second step in this process.
Close all other programs on
your computer. Open your down-
loads folder and find the file you
just downloaded. It may be called
Setup.exe. Your download save
box should have told you the


name of the file.
Double-click the installation
file. It is usually quite easy to man-
age from here. The download
manager will ask you some ques-
tiots and you may need to click
OK or next a few times. It is im-
portant to read each of the panels
during download. You may also
be asked to restart your comput-',
er. Do this. You may find the new
icon on your desktop. During
installation you may have been
asked where you want to be able
to access the file. Double-click
the icon and set up the software
guards to your liking. At some
point during the download or
registration of paid software you
may be asked for your email ad-
dress. This is so the company can
send you a serial number to use
during installation. Keep this in- -
formation in a safe place because
if you ever need to rebuild your '
computer software you will need
it again. Watch for this column on
Wednesday in the.future. Happy .,
computing! Email your questions, :.

The villages of the Calusa Indians


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The misty clouds of water
droplets lhung gently suspended
above the bay, enveloping the
surrounding estuaries and man-
grove forest in a gray blanket of
fog. Snowy white egrets, engulfed
in the. clouds of swirling mist, cre-
ated shadowy apparitions as they
winged their way silently through
the fog shrouded forest.
The awakening sun began
to climb sluggishly in the east-
ern sky, spinning golden threads
of shimmering heat that slowly
burned away the cloudy canopies
of fragile mist. The dissipating
fog began to unveil a picturesque
landscape of sandy white beach-
es, surrounded by pristine estuar-
ies and mangrove forest.
Large shell mounds rose from
the beach like prehistoric fig-
ures, as the fog slowly vaporized
in the warm morning air. Wide
stairways lead up to the tops
of the towering mounds where
wooden structures, made from
cypress trees and palmetto palm
fronds, stood. The shelters rested
on the flat, square tops of the airy
mounds, giving the occupants a
complete view of the island and
temporary relief from the insects.
This fictional story described
a typical Calusa village on the
southwest coast of Florida, when
the Spaniards first arrived in the
1500s. Where were these villages
and what are mounds? It's time
to take "A Walk in The Past" and
review Calusa village names, lo-
cations, and mounds, based on
Fontenado memoirs and the in-
terpretation of Archeologists.
Escalenta Fontenado lived
with the Calusa for 17 years as
a slave and described the region
inhabited by the Calusa Indi-
ans. Their nation started on the
southwest coast of Florida, from
Charlotte Harbor to the Ten Thou-
sand Islands as far south as Cape
Sable. The Myakka, Peace, Calos-
sahatchie, Whidden, Turner, and
Shark Rivers were the major in-
land waterways and extensions
of their coastal realm.
He quoted some of the towns
along the west coast, starting in
the Charlotte Harbor area: "First, a
place called Tampa, a large town,
and another town, which is called
Tomo; another, Tuchi and an-
other Soco; another by the name
No, which signifies town beloved;
another, Sinapa ; and another, Si-
naesta; and another, Metamapo;
and another, Sacaspada; and an-
other, Calaobe; and another, Es-
tame ; another, Yagua ; another,
Guevu ; another, Muspa, another,
Casitoa ; another, Tatesta ; anoth-
er, Cayovea ; and another, Jutun;
another, Tequemapo; and anoth-
er, with the name of Comachica
; also, Quisiyove, and two other


towns of that territory, the ialles
of which 1 do not recollect, for it
has been six years since I calce
from there."
Some of the towns lontenado
named have been identified by
archeologists, while others have
been lost in tiie. One interest-
ing town Archeologists identified
was Tampa, a village located in
Charlotte Harbor that was once
documented in early Spanish re-
cords. Later Spanish mapmakers
made the mistake of misinterpret-
ing the document and mapping
this town further north on the
next large bay. You guessed it....
Tampa Bay. So now you know
how Tampa Bay and the city of
Tampa got their names...by a slip
of the pen. Who says the famous
quote, "The pen is mightier than
the sword" has no merit?
The Calusa towns were built
on mounds of shell, sand and
dirt. The mounds located in Lee
and Collier Counties are-gener-
ally made of shell. Shell mounds
were unique because they acted
as large drainage systems that
quickly filtered the water through
the massive mounds. The drain-
age factor was very critical when
Tropical storms caused tidal


Flooding along the coast.
The moundOts fl'ound l at ()rlt1;a
Locks and other inland locations
aloiig the (Caloosaliati t'chee River
are gellerally construlctled of said.
Distance and labor no 1oubtt lim-
ited the Calusa nound builders
to local material; however, oyster
shell mounds have been found
in e1lndry County. Archeologists
believe the sand found at the
Chosen mounds located close to
Belle Glade was hauled from Ft.
Myers.
The shelters that perched on
top of the flat mounds were usu-
ally constructed of pine or cypress
poles. The thick ends of the poles
were placed in holes spaced one
to two yards apart, forming a
round or oval shape structure. The
slimmer ends of the poles were
tied together, creating a round
roof. The roofs were thatched
with palm fronds or cypress bark.
Walls were made of palm fronds
or sometimes woven branches
that were stuffed with Spanish
moss or clay. Woven mats were
used for flooring and as doors for
the single entrances into the shel-
ters.
Some of the structures were
very large. Pedro Mendendez de

Aviles, the Spaniard that rescued
Fontenado, said he was enter-
tained by a Calusa king and de-
scribes a shelter; it housed 2,000
people and had benches lined
along the walls. This shelter was
probably a large temple. Temples
were constructed at many towns,
so the mounds in Clewiston prob-
ably had a Temple.
What kind of services do you
think they held in their temples?
There will be "Tales to Tell" in
next weeks edition of "A Walk in
The Past" when Fontanedo de-
scribes the religious beliefs and
social structure of the Calusa In-
dians.

Eastside Safety Patrol BBQ fundraiser a success


The Safety Patrol members
of Eastside Elementary School
would like to thank everyone who
helped make our BBQ fundraiser
such a huge success.
There's no possible way we
can thank everyone individually,
but we greatly appreciate every-
one who came out to help cook,
purchased a dinner, or made a
donation. All proceeds from this
fundraiser will be used to help us
go to Washington, D.C. in May.
We would like to say a very
special thank you to a few indi-
viduals who made this fundraiser
possible. Eddie Steadley and Ste-
ven Lee, from Winn Dixie, for a
great deal on the pork steaks. You
guys are the best! Ms.
Holligan, Ms. Hatcher, and Ms.
Bushelle, from Eastside/Westside
cafeteria, for preparing the maca-


roni and cheese and green beans.
There aren't many people who get
up early on a Saturday morning to
do someone a favor. We appreci-
ate you more than you know! To
the Elks Lodge, thank you for al-
lowing us to use the 5-acre field
for the BBQ. It made it so con-
venient to have the BBQ at your
location. To USSC and Clewiston
Fire Department, thank you for
allowing us to use your grills to
prepare 700 pork steaks.
We couldn't have done it with-
out the use of the grills.
The Safety Patrol members will
be doing additional fundraisers
in 'the near future, so we're sure
you'll be seeing us again. Thanks
again for all of your support.

Stein: Safety Patrol Sponsors.

How to redeem Halloween


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church
In the early 1500's, many
churches sold indulgences, which
could be purchased to cancel out
sins. If you did something that was
wrong, you could give the church
some money, and the money was
supposed to buy your forgiveness
from God.
Martin Luther thought this was
wrong. He thought that forgive-
ness came through repentance,
not purchases.
On Oct. 31, 1517, Martin Luther
wrote down 95 theses. 95 things
he believed about the church. 95
things which would help people
more fully realize who they were
and could be in our Lord. Luther
took his list and nailed it to the
door of the church for everyone to
see and read. This began a move-
ment to improve the workings of
the church, and the church was
reformed based on many of Lu-
ther's ideas.
God also calls us to be faith-
ful and to make a difference. We
don't have to do great things.
There are times in our lives when
we have opportunities to reach
out and touch people in a special


way. Halloween can be one such
opportunity.
There was a man in the neigh-
borhood where I grew up who
made snow cones every Hallow-
een for all of us trick-or-treaters. I
remember him. More than that, I
remember how special he made
each of us feel. It inspired within
me a desire to one day, if at all
possible, to do what he did to
make and hand out snow cones
on Halloween -- to make good
memories by touching the hearts
of children and youth in special,
ways.
A number of years ago that
was made possible with the gift of
a snow cone machine, and I have
been making snow cones and
friends each Halloween since.
1 make no secret that I'm claim-
ing the night for Christ, and share
blessings with all who come to
my door.
I invite you to join me this year
in redeeming Halloween. Let us
not turn away from Halloween,
but become a beacon for our
Lord in the midst of it. Someone
shared that being a Christian is
like being a pumpkin. "God picks
you from the patch, brings you
in, and washes all the dirt off of
you. Then He cuts off the top and


scoops out all the yucky stuff. He
removes the seeds of doubt, hate,
greed, etc., and then He carves
you a new smiling face and puts
His light inside of you to shine for
the entire world to see."
As kids come to your door, let
them see His light in you. Don't
give in to the world, but be in
the world with your light shining.
Don't hide it under a bushel, but
hold it up to the world as a living
witness for our living God. It is the
combined wattage of many lights,
each shining in its own place but
'for a common purpose, that illu-
minates a city in the midst of the
darkness of night.
Some churches and commu-
nities have fall festivals and Hal-
loween alternatives where chil-
dren and youth can go celebrate
in a fun and safe environment.
These are a great way to join oth-
ers in lighting the night. This year
I will be at my church on Hallow-
een and at Woodworks Park in
Clewiston for the Fall Festival on
Nov. 1. Come visit me! You will
find pumpkins carved in special
ways, bowls of the best candy,
-- and yes, a snow cone machine
running and the light of Christ
shining.


Halloween and spiritual traditions


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. d.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There's a tradition among our
spiritual ancestors which has
everyone gathered around the
family table on the eve of a spe-
cial holiday. The youngest person
in the group asks the oldest one
"Why is this night different than
any other night?" And the eldest
replies by telling everyone of the
traditions and reasons for the
holiday.
The tradition is kept alive, the
children listen to the heroic ac-
counts that give'them a heritage
and a sense of identity that helps
them understand who they really
are. We're on the eve of another
tradition; when all of the trick-
or-treaters will want to celebrate
with costumes and collecting
goodies, and having a great time
of it all. But why? I wonder if any
of them know why Halloween is
celebrated and, for that matter,
many of the other holidays -that
have come to be observed on our
calendars.
When I lived in Quebec, all of
the license plates were imprinted
with "Je me Souviens." It literally
meanh"I remember myself" but
more accurately was translated
"I know who Iam." It meant that
the people were aware of their
traditions and heritage, their val-
ues and their identity as a people.
That is something missing in
many places these days. That may
be a key part missing in many lives
these days; being able to answer
"Who are you?" Or maybe more
importantly 'What does being


here mean to you?" God identifies
Himself to Moses as "I am who 1
am (Exodus 3:14)" and each time
he gives a people or a person a
mission, He gives them a name,
an identity.
With that special purpose
comes a sense of identity. This
keeps His people together, gives
them strength, gives them an
understanding of their destiny
and keeps them together, carries
them through when times are
hard, About Halloween? It was
originally a "Holy day" or "holi-
day" that came on "All Hallow's
Evening" or "Hallowed Even" or
just "Halloween."
It was when the early Chris-
tians remembered all of those
who were saints and who left
them with a remarkable heri-
tage, and who were the heroes
of the faith in their day and age.
It is a time to remember all of the
"saints" in our lives too; the ones
in the Bible, the ones who were
a part of our religious foundation,
.and those personal ones who
have touched our own individual
lives.
I can think of some "saints"
who were patient with me and
guided me along the way when
it was not theeasiest thing to do,
those who inspired me to follow
my dreams and make, them re-
alities, those who encouraged me
when I had doubts that I might
not make it, those who shared
from their own treasure-houses
of their resources and wisdom to
give me a better life.
These are my saints, along
with all of the others around us
They should be remembered.

They make us who we are and

When the "Holiday" comes
and we recall "Halloween" take
a moment to share with our chil-
dren, and each other, the real
meaning of a special time to be
thankful for all of those who have
come from God to us and are His
real heroes in our lives. The day
can become a very special holi-
day; honoring those who have
made us what we are.
Halloween can be a time of
sharing and teaching, giving our
children something to hand on
to their children when the time
comes; more than just parties and
costumes and collecting treats.
Thanking God for all who have
been sent into our lives, remem-
bering them and taking our part
in being His saints in our time a,

to raise the awareness, and the
importance of women's health. It
is one of the largest women's en-
durance events in the U.S.
Keri and Holly managed to
raise more than $8,000 for this
worthy cause, in memory of their
grandmother's who lost their
fights to Lymphoma.
This is Holly's first marathon
finish, and Keri's second. Keri had
completed her first marathon at
Nike in 2005 on behalf of her own


9-year survival of Leukemia.
As college teammates and
now fellow coaches and teach-
ers at CH-IS, Keri and Holly relied
on each other, once again, to get
through the training, raise the
funds, and ultimately make it
across the finish line.
Without a doubt, the help
from those in the community of
Clewiston, assisted in their ef-
forts to reach their goals. Keri
and Holly would like to extend a
special thanks to all of those, both
businesses and individuals, who
helped them along this journey,
and ultimately crossing the fund-
raising and marathon finish line.

but at the end of the day, "we're
not in it for the money." Sheriff
Lee said agencies around the
state have been forced to lay off
people, but not the local sheriff's
office. "We have to hold on to
what we have."
The students have taken a very
active approach to this year's po-
litical process. They've stayed in
communication with the candi-
dates through the August Prima-
,ries, inviting political hopefuls to


thoughtful discussions regarding
the state of the county.
With the hope of catching the
attention of major figures, they
even sent messages to vice presi-
dential hopefuls--youwon't know
until you try, they surmised.
Their last event with the sher-
iff candidates had both parties
answering as carefully as though
they were the focus of a town hall
meeting, with very few questions
brushed aside.

Banker accused of theft



at Wal-Mart store


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- A bank loan of-
ficer was accused of stealing $150
of merchandise at the Wal-Mart
recently.
Store employees found mostly
novelty items, party favors, and
even a canister for inflating bal-
loons. When asked why he would
take such things, the man said he
only wanted his grandson to en-
joy his upcoming birthday party.
"Times are hard," he report-
edly said.
Don Gutshall, the Clewiston
Police chief doesn't buy that sto-
ry.
"Time's are never that hard,"
the chief said. "I can see where
the economic issues are affecting
the country -- they're affecting me
and my family -- but that is not an
issue of economic depression,
that's an issue of character."
According to the arrest report
provided by the police depart-
ment, on Oct. 13 the man was
spotted by Wal-Mart employees
placing items inside plastic bags.
They told officers they saw the
man stuffing a box of cereal in a
cart.
His suspicious activity was
what first alerted employees,
though the report does not speci-
fy what that activity was. Employ-
ees kept watch of the man for the
next 30 minutes.
He was then seen walking to
the bank, the small Olde Cypress
-- Bank location at the Wal-Mart,
and then was stopped while he
walked toward the door on his
way out. He was asked for his re-
ceipt, and he responded by saying
he did not have one.
Among the items the man
is reported to have stolen were
ornaments, cutlery, a pink neck-
lace, a $2.78 box of Kellogg's ce-
real, $1.98 bottle of milk, and dog
food.
The chief of police thanks the
organizations in the area that di-
rectly provide families with food,
and said that nothing justifies
breaking the law.
"It's rare to see someone in
that position be caught for steal-
ing so little," he said as he read
the details of the arrest..
