U.S. Sugar to keep


New deal calls for
sale of land, not fa-
cilities

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- There is a
new deal on the table regarding
the sale of U.S. Sugar to the state.
Despite initially offering all of its
land and production facilities,
the company is now keeping the
mill and the railroad and citrus


plants out of the sale.
The news was made public by
Governor Charlie Crist on Tues
day, following initial reports.
Under the terms of the sale,
the company is offering 182,500
acres land to the South Florida
Water Management District -
4,500 acres less than the initial
deal. U.S. Sugar will maintain its
primary mill in Clewiston, its rail
road and citrus operations.
The original terms called for a
$1.75 billion buyout of U.S. Sug-
ar. The new sale is in the neigh-


borhood of $1.34 billion.
The change poses some in-
teresting questions as the mat
ter heads toward the governing
bodies of the company and the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District for final approval.
With U.S. Sugar keeping just
about 2.5 percent of the land it
owns, the question is whether
the company can sustain the
profits it has become accus-
tomed to when it has operated
with a much larger area of pro-
duction.


The matter of the 1,700 jobs is
still vague. A much scaled down
operation seems to guarantee
the loss of jobs, but with the deal
in its infancy, concrete plans are
still murky.
When the sale of the com-
pany was announced earlier this
year, Carol Wehle, the district's
executive director, assured resi-
dents that there were no plans to
shut down the mill. The district
unable to operate such a facility,
the general consensus seemed
to be a sale of the production

facilities to another agricultural

This news seems to throw a
wrench into those plans.

Students pay tribute
to military men
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- On Tuesday
morning, members of the high
school's Criminal Justice pro
gram held a stirring program for
Veteran's Day.
Traditionally held at the high
school, this year the program
was moved to Civic Park, where
several hundred people gathered
under clear skies.
Mayor Mali Chamness paid
tribute to all local military men,
and all of those who have served
their country.
"We honor them today," she
said. "We honor them every
day."
Old soldiers and young ser-
vicemen sat in the chairs across
the podium, listening as students
took time to formally recognize
and honor the contributions the
men had made.
Members of the various
branches of the military -- the
Coast Guard, Marines, Army,
Navy and Air Force -- stood as
students filed past carrying flags
bearing the representation of
their branches of service.

Pelletier wins recount


Kristina Kulpa
searches for recourse
after narrow loss to
Pelletier
By Patty Brant
INI Florida
In an election year filled
with high emotions, vigor-
ous debate and historic im-
plications Hendry County
was not without its own
Election Day twist.
Just five votes separated
incumbent Property Ap-
praiser Kristina Kulpa and
her opponent, Phillip Pelle-


tier when the counting was
done Tuesday, Nov. 4.
Mr. Pelletier had garnered
5,255 votes to Ms. Kulpa's
5,250.
After the recount Mon-
day, Nov. 10, they were still
separated by five votes, con-
firming challenger Phill Pel-
letier as the winner.
However, Ms. Kulpa is
continuing to search for any
recourse in challenging the
outcome.
She said she is research-
ing the law and talking to
attorneys.
She intends to pursue any
avenue she may find.


"I am not relinquishing
my job," she said.
"I still have the office. I do
not feel defeated."
She added that she is
very grateful for all her sup-
port and knows that she has
done a good job as Property
Appraiser.
The recount itself was a
tense five-hour process that
lasted from 3 p.m. until it fi-
nally ended at 8 p.m.
Both candidates sat qui-
etly inside the counting area
with their respective party
chairman.

Tigers Whip Scots; Win Title


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston's journey to Boca
Raton St. Andrews on Friday night
proved to be very rewarding as
the Tigers captured their fourth
consecutive 2A District 6 title.
Three rushing scores by senior
tailback Darris Hughes powered
the offense while the defense
kept the Scots well in check.
The victory improved the
Clewiston record to 7-2 overall
and 4-0 in the district.
In fact, the Tigers have never
lost a district game since joining
the district four years ago.
Clewiston won the opening
toss but deferred until the second
half.
The defense held the Scots
three and out. From their 45, the
Tigers used 8 plays with Hughes
getting the final 4 yards.
Key plays on the drive were
throws from quarterback Isandro
Marquez of 22 and 12yardscaught
by tight end Julio Ramos.
The Tigers roared back in the
second period, scoring on a 25-
yard jaunt by Hughes. Hughes set
up the score with an 18-yard re-
turn of a short St. Andrews punt.
Kicker I[andrn Mnaroile added


the extra point and was perfect
on the night on his 3 attempts.
Clewiston took the second half
kickoff and Hughes returned the
ball 18 yards to the Tiger 39.
Hughes then ran for 14 fol-
lowed by an 18 yard smash by
fullback Leonard Newton.
From their, Hughes burst up
the middle and raced untouched
for the 29 yard touchdown.
St. Andrews lone score came
early in the final quarter on a 12
yard run by tailback Ben Dexter.
The score was a gift as a result of
a blocked Tiger punt, the second
of the game.
While the Tigers won, the vic-
tory was not impressive as the
Scot's defensive front appeared to
be all the Tiger offensive line could
handle for most of the game.
From a rushing perspective, 16
of 31 Tiger rushes were held to 3
yards or less. Marquez' passing
was sharp except for 2 intercep-
tions.
Defensively, the Tigers seemed
more their normal self as they
held the Scots to 116 yards rush-
ing on 31 tries and only 55 yards
passing.

came in the second period after
the game was decided.
Linebacker Joey Cordova
turned in his best performance of
the year with 10 tackles, an assist,
and 1.5 rushing sacks for a total of
5 yards lost.
Linebacker Dillon Irey also was
active with 7 tackles and an assist.
Linebacker Leonard Newton re
covered a fumble and defensive
back Damion Smith picked off a
pass.
Tailback Darris Hughes
eclipsed the single season rush-
ing record for the Tigers on his
first carry of the game.
The record was 1,527 yards set
in 1990 by fabled Tiger tailback
Thomas Washington.
Hughes now stands at 1,649
yards rushing with one game re-
maining to add to the total.
The Tigers close out their
regular season this week hosting
Okeechobee.
The Brahmans have also se-
cured a playoff berth and feature
the hard running of Lonnie Pryor,
one of the best backs in the state.
Pryor rolled past the 2,000-yard
mark rushing in last week's vic-
tory over Jensen Beach.


The Tigers will open their play
off activity on November 21 when
they host the Mulberry Panthers,
runner-ups in 2A District 5.
The Panthers are 6-4 entering
their final contest and finished 4-1
in district play.

Raiders clinch district, win over Suncoast


Pahokee defeats Vero
Beach, Glades Day
beats Moore Haven

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE In Glades Cen-
tral's 44-0 thumping of Suncoast,
a few things were proven at the
conclusion of the Muck Bowl
tune-up.
The Raiders most likely will be
thoroughly dominant at a home-
coming game, which was re-
scheduled from Oct. 3 to Nov. 7.
Also, Glades Central can easily
win contests on the run, through
the air and on defense.
Simply put, this year's assem-
bly of Raiders is proving that an
opponent must play at least a
near-perfect game to even have a
chance of pulling a victory.
It's akin to, say, an opponent
picking its poison, especially in
District 15-3A play, which the
Raiders won with a 4-0 record
this season.
The consensus No. 1 team
in Class 3A, according to the lat-
est Associated Press High School
Football poll, mostly used its run
ning game to overpower them in
the blowout win.
The running back duo of senior
Antonio McCloude (eight carries,
69 yards, 2 rush TDs) and junior
Antwon Chisolm (four carries, 18
yards, 2 total TDs) was just too
much for Suncoast to handle.
McCloude broke a scoreless tie
in the first quarter with a 5 yard
touchdown run, the first of three
touchdown drives in the second
quarter.
Chisolm followed with a 8-yard
rushing score of his own later in
the quarter.
Senior tight end/wide receiver
James West (three receptions, 36
yards) hauled in a 12-yard touch-
down catch in the second quar-
ter from junior quarterback L.J.
Thomas (11-for-15 passing, 173
yards, 1 TD).
Glades Central went into half-
time with a 22-0 lead after senior
Andre Edwards caught a 2-point
conversion from Thomas, cour
tesy of Chisolm's rushing score.
If Suncoast (4-6) thought they
were going to score at any point,
Glades Central gave them that
answer in emphatic fashion as
the Raiders gave up only 65 total
yards in the game.
The exclamation point came
in the second half when senior
defensive back D'Anthony Ja-
boam, a Royal Palm Beach trans
fer, caught an interception at the
Suncoast 19 yard line for a score.
Chisolm, who recorded 110 all-
purpose yards in the game, broke


loose for a 60-yard punt return for
touchdown in the second half.
The Raiders (9-0; Beef O' Bra-
dy's No. 3 team in the state's all-
classification poll) are now look-
ing forward to the annual Muck
Bowl against the Pahokee Blue
Devils.
Glades Central is hoping to
avenge a 34-24 home loss in last
year Muck Bowl, where this year's
backup senior quarterback, Ken-
tavious McCoy, was named the
Muck Bowl MVP.
If the Raiders win the Muck
Bowl, it would be their first since
2004.
Not only that, Glades Central
may make its first appearance in
USA Today's Super 25 national
high school poll next week, con-
tingent on the outcome of their
final regular season game.
The Raiders haven't been na-
tionally ranked since 2006, when
they were the No. 5 team in the
country before losing an early
season game to Byrnes (S.C.)


Pahokee 28, Vero
Beach 10
The Blue Devils (8-1; Beef O'
Brady's No. 4 team in the state's
all classification poll) won their
Nov. 6 road game on the strength
of its running game, led by senior
Vincent Smith.
The Michigan commit rushed
for 211 yards and three touch-
downs in Pahokee's Muck Bowl
tune-up game against the Indi-
ans.
University of Florida commit
and senior Nu'Keese Richardson,
the only Muck-area player to ap-
pear on ESPN's latest ESPN150
high school recruiting list, threw
a 5-yard touchdown pass to fel-
low senior Dexter Holmes to
complete Pahokee's scoring in
the game.
However, Vero Beach did a
fairly decent job of neutralizing
Richardson, who was held to
6-for-15 passing with 58 yards,
one touchdown and one inter-
ception.
In all fairness, Richardson
played quarterback for the first
time since Pahokee faced Byrnes
(S.C.) on the road in an 38-12
heartbreaking loss.
In the three games before Vero
Beach all blowout wins Rich-
ardson lined up at receiver, his
natural position.
It was an effort to showcase
sophomore quarterback Em-
manuel Perez, who made a brief
appearance in the Muck Bowl
tune-up, though he didn't attempt
a pass.
On the defensive front, the


Blue Devils, anchored by outside
linebacker Brandin Hawthorne
and defensive back Jarvis Byrd,
limited Vero Beach (7-2) to 164
total yards.
Tailor-made to stop the run,
Pahokee registered four sacks,
while allowing just 88 rushing
yards to the highly regarded team,
who is in Class 6A.
That being said, for the second
consecutive season, Pahokee (8-1;
3-0 in District 7-2B play) compiled
a clean sweep in two districts.
Those two districts were Class
6A-District 7 (Vero Beach, Palm
Beach Lakes, Palm Beach Gar
dens and Jupiter) and their own
(Melbourne Central Catholic,
John Carroll and District 7-2B
runner-up King's Academy).
Next up for Pahokee is the an-
nual Muck Bowl against Glades
Central, which is their final regu-
lar season game.
The top-ranked team in Class
2B, according to the AP's latest
high school poll, are aiming for
their third consecutive Muck Bowl
win against their archrival.
Last season, Smith scored the
game-winning score in what will
forever be remembered as a clas-
sic showdown.
Winning the Muck Bowl would
be huge for this team, as the Blue
Devils have had to play on since
losing Norman Griffith to a trag-
edy a few games back.
Add to the fact that this year's
game is played at Lair Field, a vic-
tory here would probably be their
biggest win since, well, last year's
Muck Bowl win.
The Muck Bowl will take place
on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 1 p.m.
It's advised that fans of both
team come out to Lair Field at
least two hours before the kickoff
time as it's expected to be fully
packed before the game begins.


Glades Day 53, Moore
Haven 12
Both the Gators and the Ter-
riers entered this meaningless
district battle with identical 4-4
records.
But in the end, all the game
showed was why Glades Day is
the dominant force in District
6-1A play, which it has won every
year since 2004.
Kelvin Taylor the son of Jack-
sonville Jaguars running back and
Glades Central alum Fred Taylor -
led Glades Day with 125 rushing
yards and three touchdowns on
only nine carries.
Amazingly, in nine regular sea
son games, the eighth-grader has
rushed for at least 100 yards in
all but one game, a 65-yard effort


against King's Academy in Glades
Day's 41-7 road loss on Oct. 31.
Taylor scored twice in the first
quarter against Moore Haven's
young defense, which gave up
269 total rushing yards in the
game.
Deandre Jackson, who regis-
tered 133 all-purpose yards (64
rushing on four carries, 69 pass
ing on three receptions, two to-
tal TDs), also scored in the first
quarter, a 30-yard rushing touch-
down.
Those scores put Glades Day
up 21-6 to end the first quarter.
By the end of the first half, the
Gators put the game out of reach
for the Terriers to even think about
mounting a comeback.
Though Terriers junior run-
ning back Fred Hall (22 carries,
93 yards) scored a touchdown
in the second quarter, the Gators
were in attack mode, highlighted
by Taylor's third touchdown, a
40-yard run.
Jackson, who is a Suncoast
transfer, rushed for his second
touchdown of the game in the
second quarter, an 11-yard effort.
At halftime, Glades Day was
up by a score of 40-12.
The game was further put out
of reach in the second half, high-
lighted by Jarrett Swaby's 50-yard
punt return for a touchdown.
The University of Central Flor-
ida commit scored two touch-
downs in this contest, including a
14-yard strike from Bo Schlecter.
Schlecter, who is known as an
accurate quarterback, was 7-for-8
passing with 125 yards and no in-
terceptions.
On the Moore Haven side,
Dalton Britt was 8-for-25 passing
with a touchdown and an inter
ception.
What hurt Moore Haven in
this contest was that they weren't
effective enough in its running
game, which has proven to be
its strongest suit throughout the
season.
Interestingly, though, the Terri
ers displayed a balanced offense
on their 52 called plays, with 27
for rushing and 25 for passing.
In most games, gaining 12 first
downs would be enough to mus-
ter a win. But it didn't work out,
as the Terriers defense allowed 20
first downs to the Gators.
Glades Day's defense showed
noticeable improvement in this
game, as it allowed just over 200
total yards, including 102 rush-
ing.
The Gators defensive backs,
anchored by Swaby, Jackson,
Davonte Alien and Joshua Thorn-
ton, neutralized the Terriers pass-
ing game effectively.
Glades Day's defenders did
a great job of limiting the effec-


Stressing benefits of poison prevention


Floridians risk unexpected en-
counters with toxins on a daily ba
sis through food poisoning, snake
bites, encounters with marine
life, insect bites, lead poisoning,
carbon monoxide, drug/chemical
abuse, pesticides or ingestion of
poisonous plants.
To save lives and provide a
resource for area residents, The
Florida Poison Information Cen-
ter Tampa, servicing 16 coun-
ties in west and central Florida,
is unveiling a new public service
campaign to increase awareness
of it's free, nationwide poison
emergency hotline 1-800-222-
1222 which is staffed with skilled
healthcare professionals 365 days
a year, 24 hours a day.
Using the direct message,
"When the problem is poison,
the answer is poison control,"


the campaign calls for all Florida
residents to use the hotline when
faced with poison-related emer
agencies, including accidental
poisoning of pets. Consumers are
urged to call the hotline to receive
complimentary magnets and
stickers so they can display the
hotline number in a prominent
location before they have a actual
emergency.
"The poison information
hotline is staffed around the clock
with experts that can answer any
question, no matter how big or
small," said Dr. Cynthia Lewis-
Younger, medical director Florida
Poison Information Center -Tam
pa.
"We're hoping to bring aware
ness about the poison control
hotline to help Florida residents
know how to avoid poison dan-


gers, call in the even of suspected
poisoning, get immediate help in
emergency situations and prevent
unnecessary hospital visits."
Created by an act of the Florida
Legislature in 1989 in response to
an overwhelming need for emer-
gency poison information in the
state, the Florida Poison Informa-
tion Center Tampa is part of the
Poison Information Center Net-
work. Currently, the FPIC/Tampa
receives approximately 160-200
calls each day from Floridians.
"Since we have a nationwide
hotline, Floridians can even use
this resource while on vacation.
We're here to help all Florida resi
dents at all times," said Dr. Lewis
Younger.
"We hope to save lives and
to become a household name
and reference for consumers. We


want people to know how to find
us when they don't need us so
they'll be prepared for any poten-
tial scenario."
All poison specialists at the
Tampa center are registered nurs-
es with emergency medicine or
critical care experience.
In addition, board-certified
toxicologists are available 24
hours per day for consultation.
The center also conducts a full
spectrum of poison prevention
education programs for the gen
eral public and healthcare profes-
sionals.
Florida residents may call the
hotline at 1-800-222-1222 to re-
quest magnets or stickers or for
other free information on poison
related dangers.


tiveness of Moore Haven senior
receiver Xavier Fagan, who came
into the games as the state's top
receiver, according to MaxPreps
Florida.
Fagan (three receptions, 51
yards) led Moore Haven's receiv-
ing corps in this game, highlight-
ed by an 11-yard score from Britt
in the first half.

Final regular
season games
The final regular season game
for Glades Day (5-4; 3-0 in Dis-
trict 6-1A play) will likely be their
toughest one of the season, as
they host Jupiter Christian tomor-
row night.
In what will be a litmus test for
the Gators throughout the Class
1A playoffs, which begins next
week, to win this game, they ab
solutely must neutralize the War
riors running game.
Jupiter Christian, the state's
consensus top-ranked Class 1B
team, according to the AP's lat-
est high school poll, is led by
the power running game of Will
Powers, who Glades Day cannot
afford to let loose.
If Powers rushes for more than

100 yards against the Gators to-
morrow night, it may very well be
a long night for Glades Day and
a likely victory for the defending
Class 1B state champions.
For the Moore Haven (4-5; 0-3
in District 6-1A play), it would be
highly disappointing if they finish
their season with a loss to Central
Florida Christian in Orlando.
After a promising start in which
the Terriers were 4-0 and consid-
ered by the AP as one of the top
10 teams in Class 1A, they have
suffered through a five-game los
ing streak.
It was very probable for Moore
Haven to at least finish as the Dis-
trict 6-1A runner-up, but losses
to St. John Neumann and Evan
gelical Christian eliminated them
from playoff contention for the
fifth straight season.
Jason Bond, Moore Haven's
second-season coach, led the Ter-
riers to a 4-6 record last season.
Here's hoping that Moore Ha-
ven's three-hour bus ride from
Orlando tomorrow night will be
joyous with the possibility of fin-
ishing the season with a 5-5 re-
cord.

Inside the Dark Side: Dr. DeNoble To Speak

Local Weather Forecast

Weather forecast for Hendry County from the National Weather
Service.

Clewiston and surrounding areas:

Thursday: Partly sunny with a 20 percent chance of showers.
Highs in the upper 80s. Southeast winds 5 to 10 mph.
Thursday Night: Partly cloudy. Lows in the upper 60s. Southeast

winds around 5 mph.


In 1994 Dr. Victor DeNoble, af-
ter a congressional release from a
confidentially agreement with the
tobacco company Philip Morris,
became the first "whistle-blower"
to begin tearing down the wall of
secrecy built by the tobacco in
dustry. He was a key witness in
the federal government's case
against the industry and has tes-
tified before Congress, the Food
and Drug Administration and
former Vice President Al Gore's
Tobacco Settlement Committee.
He has been featured on several
TV shows such as "60 Minutes",
"Dateline NBC" and Sunday
Morning with David Brinkley.
Victor DeNoble, Ph.D. was
employed by Philip Morris in the


Behavioral Research Department
from 1980-1984. He performed
in-house Philip Morris rat studies
on nicotine and addiction and
was later fired by Philip Morris be-
cause of sensitive nature of what
studies revealed about nicotine
addiction. As a former employee
of tobacco giant Phillip Morris
Dr. DeNoble speaks about his
experiences from inside the dark
side of tobacco. He shares im-
portant information about how
tobacco companies target youth
as 'replacement smokers' for the
30,000 smokers who die everyday
from the harmful effects of nico-
tine. Dr. DeNoble said he is deter
mined to get the truth out about
what the tobacco industry knew


about nicotine and that they were
consciously killing people who
are addicted. In April 1994, seven
executives from the tobacco in-
dustry stood before Congress and
testified that nicotine was not ad-
dictive, but rather it was a choice.
Two weeks after the testimony on
April 28, DeNoble testified that
the Philip Morris and the other six
tobacco executives knew 10 years
earlier that nicotine is an addictive
drug and were fully conscious the
product killed people. "My con-
tribution is to show what the to-
bacco industry knew and when.
My role is to tell that the tobacco
companies made a conscious de
cision not to make a safer cigarette
that could have saved lives. They


chose to make money and profits
over lives," DeNoble says. Every
one who is interested in learning
the truth about how the tobacco
companies target young people
to become smokers or dippers
and work to keep them addicted
will be interested in hearing Dr.
DeNoble's message.
Dr. DeNoble will speak in
Moore Haven at the Doyle Con-
ner Building at 6 p.m. on Monday,
Nov. 17 and at Flora and Ella's
Restaurant at 7 a.m. on Tuesday,
Nov. 18. The talks are free and
open to the public. Breakfast will
be available for purchase on Tues-
day. Dr. DeNoble will also speak
to students in schools in Hendry
and Glades counties.

Plan now for
November
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "0' Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Paho
kee on Nov. 22, and end at Paho
kee on Nov. 30.
That's nine days of walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days. So plan now and get
in shape for November.
For further information please

Nurse Practitioner's Week Hope HealthCare Programs


At Hendry Regional
Medical Center

Your Partner in Health The
Nurse Practitioner' is the theme
for the 2008 National Nurse Prac-
titioner's (NPs) Week, Nov. 9
through Nov. 15.
Hendry Regional Medical
Center wants to celebrate the
vital role and provide awareness
that NPs play in bringing high-
quality, cost-effective and per-
sonalized health care to Hendry
and Glades Counties.
A Nurse Practitioner is your
partner in health, providing qual-
ity primary care services, similar
to those of a physician.
Nurse Practitioners are reg-
istered nurses with advanced
education and advanced clinical
training.
They bring a unique perspec-
tive to health care services in that
they place emphasis on both
care and cure.
Along with clinical services,
NPs focus on health promo-
tion, disease prevention, health
education and counseling, while
guiding patient to make smarter
health and lifestyle choices.
Nurse Practitioners practice
under the rules and regulations
of the state in which they are li-
censed.
Most NPs are nationally certi-
fied in their specialty area; they
are recognized as expert health


care providers and provide
health care services in all states
and in many countries around
the world.
NPs provide a full range of ser
vices including the diagnosis and
treatment of acute and chronic
conditions such as diabetes,
high blood pressure, infections
and injuries.
Patients who see NPs often
report extremely high levels of


satisfaction with the care they
receive.
Craig Cudworth, the CEO of
Hendry Regional Medical Center,
invites you to join him in thank-
ing the nurse practitioners of our
community for their focus in ed-
ucating and treating patients.
They are truly 'Your Partners
in Health.


Is Your Gallbladder Acting Up?


By Dr. Leonard Carroll
HRMC Board Certified General
Surgeon
The gallbladder is a pear-
shaped organ that sits under the
liver and stores bile. Bile helps to
digest fats. It is attached to the bile
ducts that come from the liver.
These ducts carry bile from the
liver to the gallbladder, where it
is concentrated, and then to the
intestine, where the bile helps to
digest the food.
Gallstones
Gallstones can form in the
gallbladder because of excessive
cholesterol in bile. They can be
smaller than a grain of sand or
as large as a golf ball. They can
also form if the gallbladder does
not empty as it should. People
who are overweight or who are
trying to lose weight quickly are
more prone to get gallstones.
Gallstones are a very common
medical problem. When they
cause pain or other problems,
treatment is usually needed. The
removal of the gallbladder is one
of the most common types of sur
gery performed in this county. In
the past, open abdominal surgery
was the traditional treatment. The
procedure required a five to seven
day stay in the hospital and a five
to seven inch incision and scar on
the abdomen.
Gallbladder Attacks
Most gallbladder attacks are
due to gallstones. People can go
for years with digestive symptoms
and never realize that they may be
related to a gallbladder problem.
That's because they are so simi
lar to other digestive symptoms;
constipation is one of the most
commonly missed ones. Those
at risk may fall under the five F's
- 1. female, 2. forty or over, 3. fat
(obese), 4. fertile (kids), 5. flatu-
lent (gas).
Gallbladder attack symptoms
can include the following:
Moderate to severe pain un-
der the right side of the rib cage
*Pain may radiate through to
the back or below the right should
der blade
*Severe upper abdominal
pain
Nausea or vomiting
*Gas
Attacks often occur at night or
after overeating. Pain will often,

Attacks can last anywhere from
15 minutes to 15 hours.

Laparoscopic Cholecystec-
tomy
Laparoscopic surgery, some-
times called band-air surgery, is
a modern technique in which op-
erations in the abdomen are per-
formed through small incisions.
A cholecystectomy is the surgical
removal of the gallbladder.
The technique is performed as
follows: The patient receives gen
eral anesthesia. A small incision is
made at the navel (point A) and a
tube carrying the video camera is
inserted.
The surgeon inflates the ab-
domen with carbon dioxide, a
harmless gas, for easier viewing
and to provide room for the sur-
gery to be performed.
Next, two long instruments
are inserted (points B and C).
These instruments serve as tiny
hands within the abdomen. They
can pick up the gallbladder, move
intestines around, and generally
assist the surgeon.
Finally, several different instru-
ments are inserted (point D) to
clip the gallbladder artery and bile
duct and to safely dissect and re-


move the gallbladder and stones.
When the gallbladder is freed, it
is then teased out of the tiny na-
vel incision. The entire procedure
normally takes 30 to 60 minutes.
The four puncture wounds re-
quire no stitches and may leave
very slight blemishes. The navel
incision is barely visible.
What Are the Benefits?
The main benefit of this pro-
cedure is the ease of recovery for
the patient. There is no incision
pain that occurs with standard
abdominal surgery. The patient is
up and about the very same day.
In fact, up to 90 percent of
patients go home on the same
day as the surgery; the other 10
percent are usually discharged
the next day. Within several days,
normal activities can be resumed.
Also, the scars on the abdomen
are very small.
Gallbladder removal by lap-
aroscopic surgery is an exciting
development because it offers so
much to the patient. The surgeon
carefully evaluates each case and
discusses it with the patient.
While problems can occur
with the procedure, it's unlikely.
In almost all instances, patients
experience excellent results, and
resume their day-to-day activities
very quickly.

Tequesta Indians and Sea Wolves

Submitted photo/NOAA Photo Library
The "Sea Wolves" were a popular food item for the Tequesta, although not all ate the animal. The Sea Wolf is better known
to the world as a Caribbean Monk Seal -- a species that is extinct.


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The tide's invasion ended at
the high water mark, as wind
swept dunes and sea oats stood
like guardians, banishing the
sea's advance.
The frothy tide slowly retreat-
ed, leaving in its wake abandoned
sea grasses and marine debris
that formed a dark thin border
paralleling the shoreline.
The debris from the retreating
sea soon attracted thousands of
screaming, diving birds and scur-
rying crabs.
The sea wolves elongated
shapes moving like fat, brown
caterpillars, advanced cautiously
from the water's edge toward the
dunes.
Their streamlined bodies
squirmed and flopped across the
hard wet sand until they reached
the edge of the dunes.
The sluggish sea wolves
stretched their bulging stom-
achs across the warm sands and
drowsily basked in the warmth of
the tropical sun.
What were sea wolves and
who were the Tequesta?
It is time to take a "Walk in The
Past" and read Fontaneda's Tall
Tales about the Tequesta Indians
and the sea wolves.
Fontaneda, a Spanish cast-
away taken captive by the Calusa
Indians, described the Tequesta
Indians living on the keys.
He said, "These Indians have
no gold, less sliver, and less cloth-
ing.
"They go naked, except only
some breech-coths woven of
palm, with which the men cover
themselves; the women do the
like with certain grass that grows
on trees.
"This grass looks like wool, al-


though it is different from it. The
common food is fish, and snails
(all of which are alike fish), and
tunny and whale; which is ac-
cording to what I saw while I was
among these Indians.
"Some eat sea-wolves; not all
of them, for there is a distinction
between the higher and lower
classes, but the principle persons
eat them.
"There is another fish, which
we here call langosta (Lobster)
and one like unto a chapin (truck-
fish), of which they consume not
less than the former."
The wool that Fontaneda re-
ferred to was Spanish moss and
the snails (clams, oysters and
conch) were shellfish.
The Spanish term "sea wolf"
was used to describe the Carib-
bean monk seal, also known as
the West Indian seal, which once
inhibited the Caribbean Sea and
Gulf of Mexico.
The seals were once numer-
ous in the keys. The last seal
sighting in the keys was at Key
West in 1922, and it was killed.
The Caribbean Monk seal was
hunted into extinction. The seals
were unique to the Tequesta and
must have held a social or reli-
gious status, since only the Te-
questa from the high cast system
could eat them.
So who were the Tequesta?
Some linguistics thinks the
Tequesta may have spoken the
Calusa language, which would
link the Tequesta directly to the
Calusa culture.
If they were kissing cousins
it didn't help much because the
Calusa Indians dominated them
and demanded tribute.
The Tequesta Indian nation
lived on the southeast coast of
Florida in areas known today as
Miami, Dade, and Broward coun-


However, some of the Te-
questa villages relocated from the
mainland to the keys during the
mosquito season, which lasted
about three months.
There are numerous Spanish
documents that make reference
to the Tequesta living in the keys.
The Tequesta's practiced hu-
man sacrifice.
A Spanish priest heard that a
young girl was going to be sacri-
ficed to celebrate a peace treaty
with the Santaluces Indians.
The priest sent a message
to the chief begging him not to
sacrifice the young girl, so the Te
questa chief relented.
Other Spanish priests saw the
Tequesta Indians worshipping a
stuffed deer, which was a symbol-
ic representative from the sun.
They also reported a bird's
head carved in pine that was
stored in a temple, along with
carved masks used in festivals.
The sacrifices, Tequesta tem-
ples and masks bare great simi-
larity in the Calusa culture.
An archeological discovery ten
years ago brought the forgotten
Tequesta Indian nation back into
the limelight of Native American
history.
The Miami Circle, also known
as the Miami River Circle is locat-
ed on the site of a Tequesta village
south of the Miami River.
There are 24 large holes cut
into the bedrock, forming a circle
approximately 38 feet in diam-
eter.
The Circle was discovered dur-
ing an archeological survey of
a site being cleared for the con-
struction of a high-rise building in
1998, and is believed be 1700 to
2000 years old.
Some think the site was the Te-
questa capital, but no one is sure


of its true significance.
I find it interesting that Fon-
tenado said the Tequesta had no
gold and little silver.
The Tequesta Indian nation
included territories that are now
termed the "Gold Coast."
It is a term used to describe the
Florida coast from Miami to Palm
Beach, where many gold and sil-
ver coins have been found.
The Gulf Stream runs much
closer to shore in Palm Beach
County, so maybe the ships that
sank in the Tequesta territories
(Dade and Broward Counties)
were in deeper water and not
savaged by the Tequesta Indians,
which would account for no gold
and little silver.
The Florida coast starting at
Hobe Sound (Martin County) and
ending at Sebastian Inlet (Indian
River County) is described as the
"Treasure Coast" because so
many ships laden with gold and
silver wrecked in these areas.
The famous 1715 Spanish
Treasure Fleet wrecked on the
Treasure Coast.
There will be other "Tall Tales"
in next week's edition of "A Walk
in The Past" when Fontanedo and
Jonathan Dickinson, a Quaker,
describes the Ais Indian nation
that lived on the Treasure Coast.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

For the second time in three years, Captain Flintlock came ashore on Halloween to recruit
new pirates for his ship set to sail at midnight. To the delight of patients, visitors, staff
and doctors alike, the good Captain sang a hearty pirate tune and gave out candy to entice
possible recruits.


On Nov. 22, hikers will gather
at the Pahokee Marina to kick off
the 17th Annual Big O Hike.
Sinced 1992, the 109 mile
Florida Trail circuit walk known
as the Big O Hike has pumped
tourism dollars into small towns

and California.
For nine days the participants


walk from 9.3 to 14.7 miles, start-
ing at sunrise and ending at their
leisure, usually before noon.
Although flat and open, the
trail offers outstanding scenic
views, especially at sunrise and
sunset.
The hike passes through five
counties around Lake Okeecho-
bee where hikers experience the
quiet side of South Florida.
As one of the Florida Trail

Wildlife officials to test ducks for avian influenza


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
and United States Department of
Agriculture Wildlife Services bi-
ologists will collect samples from
hunter-harvested ducks to test for
highly pathogenic avian influenza
- H5N1.
Sampling will occur at various
times during the migratory game
bird hunting season at several
duck-hunting hot spots through
out Florida.


Hunters will not need to sur-
render their ducks, and participa
tion is voluntary.
Biologists will obtain the sam-
ples by swabbing the ducks' re-
spiratory and digestive tracts.
Scientists at a diagnostic lab
will test the samples for avian in-

An Educational Toy: Finding our way home


Our guide when we
cannot see the
horizon

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Many times when I was grow-
ing up, we'd find a "treasure"
when shopping around.
For years after the end of World
War II there were lots of military
surplus items that found their way
into local second-hand stores and
surplus centers.
Many of them were great finds
to do-it-yourselfers, radio ama-
teurs and hobbyists of all sorts of
interests.
One day when "shopping"
with my father and brothers, we
came upon a bubble sextant.
They were originally estimated


to cost the government a few hun-
dred dollars each; now they were
on sale for fifty cents a piece.
Their purpose was for celestial
navigation; to guide an aircraft.
Two of them had to come
home!
My father had a sailboat ear-
lier in his life and they brought
back memories as well as being
something he could share with
his sons.
This was a great learning expe-
rience.
I didn't master all of the details
but I learned enough to "shoot
the sun" or get an angle between
a star and the earth, seeing how I
might figure out the time from the
angle of the sun or explore ways
to use it as a level.
It was different than the usual
sextants, the kind my father would
have had on his boat.
Instead of looking for the ho


rizon, there was a bubble level
built into it.
It was much like the level used
in hanging pictures or building
houses. It was for aircraft use and
provided an artificial horizon.
A plane above the clouds or
flying on a very dark night when
everything was blacked out might
still be able to find its way home
or where it was going.
The bubble provided an invisi
ble horizon even when there were
no landmarks or there was noth-
ing to be seen in the distance.
Long before satellites were
even thought of, or when radio
navigation was still in its infancy,
the combination of a simple level
and a way of measuring angles
gave a means of finding our way
and bringing us safely home.
For me, it was a toy, a relic of
another time, something that was
once very valuable but now had


little worth or purpose.
I was fascinated with it for
awhile sharing in my imagina-
tion a time gone by when people
crossed oceans with much great-
er courage then we need today.
The Bible has many stories
about navigational dangers; Jo-
nah who thinks he is going to Tar-
shish and winds up in Nineveh,
the very place he doesn't want to
go.
There were disciples who were
afraid of being lost in a storm at
sea while Jesus is sleeping in the
stern of their boat.
He becomes their guide and
calms their fears about being lost
(Mark 4:36ff).
Paul tells about being ship
wrecked three times (2 Corinthi-
ans 11L25) but he continues on
"through visions and revelations"
(12:1) as his guide.
These can be our guide too


when we don't see the horizon
or feel lost or can't find a familiar
landmark.
An invisible force inside of a
direction finder kept a bubble
floating to provide a horizon, and
it became a way to find the way.
A force is also within us; faith
will provide a sense of direction,
help us find our way home, give
us assurance when the night is
dark and there seems to be noth
ing around to guide us.
It will provide us with the cour-
age to venture out when the way
is unknown or the world seems
full of hidden dangers.
There are those navigational
plans; to guide us in the earthly
world and to guide us in the world
of the spirit.
We can rely on them both to
get us through and take us where
we need to go.
I count myself as fortunate


when I grew up.
My brothers and I were en-
couraged to be curious and had
our quest to explore stimulated.
We were given "toys" at times
that weren't really toys and we
learned how to "navigate" around
strange objects, to ask questions,
to search for answers and direc
tion.
Sometimes what we learned
pointed to greater truths ; they let
us marvel at great deeds done by
saintly people, taught us some-
thing about faith and seeing God
at work.
There are many blessings out
there: God comes to His faithful
and shows us the horizon within
us, guides us in safety and finally
leads us home


Thanksgiving is really Thanksliving!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
At First Christian Church we
are celebrating the entire month
of November as Thanksliving
Month.
We are urging all not to just
"Give" Thanks but to "Live"
Thanks the entire month!
William Law, a 17th century
Englishman, once asked: "Would
you know who is the greatest
saint? It is not the man who prays
most or who does most. It is the
man who is most thankful."
Were did Mr. Law get such an
idea?
He, like many Englishmen
of his day, was deeply versed in
Scripture.
In I Thessalonians 5:18 Paul
wrote, "In everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ
Jesus for you."
The man who wrote those
words endured much hardship
for Christ.
The great apostle Paul was ar-
rested, tried, and imprisoned.
He was beaten with whips and
rods. Once he was stoned and left
for dead. He suffered shipwreck,
perils in the water, perils in the

Religion briefs

Thanksgiving Dinner
First United Methodist Church
of Clewiston will host a com-
munity Thanksgiving dinner on
Thursday, Nov. 27 at 11:30 a.m.
We will serve family style, and
send leftovers home with those
who want them! There is no
charge, but a love offering basket
for the community food bank will
be available. For more informa-
tion please call 863-983-5269.

Revival
The New Beginnings Minis
tries of Deliverance of Clewiston,
Inc. will be hosting a Revival from
Oct. 15 to 17, beginning at 7:30
p.m. Special guest speaker will
be Elder James Bigham, Assis-
tant Pastor from New Beginning


city, perils in the wilderness.
He was badly used by his own
countrymen, by robbers and false
brethren.
He experienced weariness,
toil, sleeplessness, hunger and
thirst, cold and nakedness. Finally
he was beheaded.
Yet he wrote, "In everything
give thanks."
Notice that Paul did not say
FOR everything but IN every-
thing.
Surely he did not thank God
for all of these dreadful things that
happened to him.
But because he knew that "all
things work together for good to
those who love God" (Romans
8:28) he could thank God in those
dreadful circumstances.
This is why he could write, "I
have learned in whatever state I
am, to be content" (Philippians
4:11).
Arthur Callendro writes, "I am
similarly impress by the Pilgrims
who did so much to shape the
great heritage we have in Amer-
ica.
"If you have ever been to the
New England coast in winter,
you can appreciate what they en-
dured. Imagine a small band of
people arriving in early Decem-


Ministries Deliverance. We are

munity Church will be honored
by their congregation, family and
friends on Sunday, Nov. 9. The
theme for this day is "Celebrate

morning service begins at 10 a.m.
and will feature a message by
Rev. Gregory Williams of Pahokee
Church of God. Glades Covenant
is located at 248 US Highway 27,


ber.
"The trees were barren. Grass
which was lush and green in
summer is now yellowish-brown
and dry.
"The ground is getting hard as
the winter freezes begins. There is
little food, for the growing season
is past. It's cold.
"The winds blowing in off the
North Atlantic bite into the set-
tler's bodies as if searching for the
very marrow of their bones.
"As they look across the ocean
toward England, they see nothing
more than gray waves pounding,
churning spray upon still grayer
rocks.
"New England is a hostile, for
bidding place in winter, yet the
Pilgrims managed to build shel-
ters.
"By summer half of them were
dead of disease, deprivation, and
exposure to cold.
"But a small group of hardy
ones survived to see the May
flower return to England, not one
of them choosing to go with it. In
spite of the hardships they deter-
mined to stay.
"With the help of Indians they
planted their first crops and when
the short growing season ended,
they did not have that much.


"Yet when the harvest came,
the dominant idea in their minds
was to give thanks to God for
what they had.
"They had a celebration, a
time of thanksgiving for God's
blessing.
"The first Thanksgiving was a
holy day.
"Wouldn't it be great if you and
I as individuals and our nation as
a whole could once again think
of Thanksgiving as a holy day in-
stead of just another holiday?
"The Pilgrims believe that Al-
mighty God who created them
was over all, and that men, wom-
en, and children were dependent
upon Him.
"Things have changed over
the years. The dominant attitude
today is that we are masters of
life.
"We feel we are in charge of
the world and don't need this
God so much anymore.
"We can handle everything
ourselves.
"It is more difficult for a mod-
ern person to be grateful, and that,
I believe, is why Thanksgiving has
changed from being a holy day to
being a holiday."

Anchor Avoid getting the Chickenpox and get a shot!


Deep



and



Pray

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The Garden of Gethsemane is
really an olive orchard, and olive
trees still grow there today.
The word Gethsemane itself
means olive press.
An olive press is made from
a large stone placed on a basket
leveraged by several more large
stones on the end of a long pole.
It literally crushes the liquid oil
from the olives.
It is no mistake that Jesus spent
His last evening in the Garden of
Gethsemane.
From there He would go to
the cross and receive the weight
of the world, the gethsemane of
our sins.
Luke describes the pressure
Jesus suffered that evening: "Be-
ing in anguish His sweat was
like drops of blood falling to the
ground."
It is an image of the gathse-
mane crushing the oil from the
olive fruit.
Gethsemane ever since has
come to symbolize suffering.
We are surrounded by gethse-
manes in our life times when in-
nocent people and communities
have suffered.
Times when we feel pressures
and situations pressing down on
us.
Think about Hurricane Wilma
or Tropical Storm Faye.
Think about the proposed U.S.
Sugar buy out or the current finan-
cial crisis around the world, but
more directly around our lives.
Think about the current elec-
tion with all of the amendments
and proposals and the future of
our community and nation.
As I wrote this, I still haven't
fully decided for whom I'm going
to cast my presidential vote.
By the time you read this, it will
have been decided along with a
number of amendments and is-
sues. In the face of such suffering
and conflicting promises, in the
face of the election results, in the
face of our life situation, we ask
ourselves: Who do we turn to?
What do we do? Where do we go
from here?
First, let's look at who we turn
to. In the midst of our suffering
or the oncoming storms, we can
turn to God -an ever present help
in times of need.
The psalmist in Psalm 121:1-2
states it this way, "I lift up my eyes
to the hills -- where does my help
come from? My help comes from
the LORD, the Maker of heaven
and earth." I remember when
Hurricane David headed our way
in 1979.
A college friend had a boat that
he was worried about, so num-
ber of us descended south from
Gainesville to help him secure his
boat for the coming storm.
Being a former Boy Scout, I
was proud of the job we did in
tying down that boat. We lashed
it tightly to the dock, trees, and
even to itself. We were patting
ourselves on the back when a sea
captain informed us that the best
way to secure a boat safely dur-
ing a hurricane was to anchor it
away from the trees and things
which would "get eaten up in the
'cane."
It was better to anchor it deep
with four ropes going out in dif-
ferent directions and pray.
It was good advice then and
is good advice as to what we are
to do. We are to anchor deep and
then we are to pray. We are to do
what we can do and then turn to
our Lord.
Now the 20-dollar question,
"Where do we go from here?"
Regardless of who won the
election, regardless of whether
the amendments we wanted or
didn't want passed or failed, re-
gardless of where the economy
is, we are to go on.
We pick up the pieces and go
forward the best we can, trusting
that God, family, and friends will
help us.
We take inventory and try to
realize anew the really important
things in our life, as well as those
important people and then em-
brace them!
Now is when the body of Christ
can really become the hands of
Christ. It is also a time when we
can reach out and embrace our
faith and God's peace as we re-
member the words of Jesus in
John 16:33: "I have told you these
things, so that in me you may
have peace. In this world you will
have trouble. But take heart! I
have overcome the world."


By Brenda Barnes
A lot of people may remember
getting chickenpox as a kid, but
did you know that you can now
get a shot to prevent chickenpox?
Chickenpox is highly infectious
and symptoms can include a
blister-like rash, itching, tiredness,
and fever. Usually, you will start
seeing the rash on the face and
upper body. Imagine trying not to
scratch 250 to 500 "itchy" blisters!
Chickenpox can spread from per-


son to person by direct contact or
through the air from an infected
person's coughing or sneezing.
(Remember to cover your face
with a tissue!) A person with
chickenpox is contagious one to
two days before the rash actually
appears and is still contagious un
til all blisters have formed scabs.
It takes about 10 to 21 days after
exposure for someone to develop
chickenpox. Chickenpox will usu
ally last anywhere from five to ten
days and children usually miss


from five to ten days of school or
daycare due to their chickenpox.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
about one out of ten children can
have complications when they get
chickenpox. These complications
can include infection, dehydra
tion from vomiting and diarrhea,
or more serious complications
such as pneumonia and encepha
litis. If a child gets the chickenpox
shot, there is a small chance that
they can still get chickenpox, but

their illness is usually mild, with
no symptoms at all other than a
few red bumps.
It is recommended that chil-
dren get two doses of the varicel-
la vaccine (chickenpox vaccine).
The first dose should be given
when the child is 12 to 15 months
old. It is usually given at the same
time as their MMR vaccine (Mea
sles, Mumps & Rubella). The sec
ond dose should be given when
the child is between four and six
years old, before they enter kin-

close its doors.

Environmentalist groups hailed
the news as a milestone for Flori
da, as polluted water feeding into
the Everglades could be filtered
naturally, providing a renewed
lifeline to the unique eco-system.
But locals wondered if it was
in the best interest for Clewiston
-- a town that is synonymous with
the sugar giant.

the sale would free up lands that
were off-limits to development,
and open up new enterprises.
Work has already begun at the
local level to identify new indus-
tries, including a plan by Hendry
County to serve as the site of an
ambitious inland cargo project.
Earlier this year, the company
took advantage of a smaller crop

"I am very hopeful for the fu-

Ms. Petersen.
Children from local elemen
tary schools were on-hand, too.
They visited some of the murals
that had been designed and paint


to refine Mexican sugar through
NAFTA. The raw sugar was
shipped in barges to the Port of
Tampa and transported to Clewis-
ton for processing.
In August that partnership
worked so well that the company
announced that the streamlined
mill had broken several produc-
tion records. For the first time in
its history, buoyed by the partner-

ed by the high school's Art Club.
Showing a soldier in full mili-
tary garb, or a row of cemetery
plots symbolizing the fallen war
heroes, the pieces turned out to
be a popular addition to the cer
emony. Many were pitched up
against trees or benches, while
high school students read pre

refinery easily surpassed its total
refinery output -- overshadowing
the record set in 2006. With less
land to work with, there is the
possibility that the company may
head more in this direction.

After the program, Randel Hat-

their artwork and their interest in
remembering the soldiers.
Serving in the air force in the
60s, Mr. Hatfield still has a spot
in his heart for every serviceman

Robert Coker, senior vice presi-

happy Phillip Pelletier said after

FFA Chapter


Attends National



Convention

From Oct. 21 until Oct. 22 five members of the FFA chapter
attended the 81st FFA National Convention in Indianapolis, Indi-
ana. The members that attended were Richard Howell, Michelle
Langston, Caitlin McGee, Shelby Weeks, and Katie Whidden. Mike
Swindle the FFA chapter's advisor and Tina Martin an "FFA Mom"
also attended. During the trip the members attended many edu-
cational tours and events. They toured an organic creamery, the
National FFA Center, and the Indiana Downs horse race track facil-
ity. The members learned many things about each one of these
places. The members attended a career show and the FFA mall,
where they picked up information about colleges and potential
agricultural related careers. The members also attended a national
parliamentary procedure competition and attended one of the na-
tional meetings in which two members, Katie Whidden and Shel-
by Weeks, were recognized on stage to receive a National Chapter
Award in recognition for being one of the outstanding chapters in
the Nation for the Clewiston chapter. The members had a great
time and are hoping to return next year.
