U.S. Sugar explores



building ethanol plant


100 Million gallon
ethanol facility
CLEWISTON, FL -Novem
ber 17, 2008 -U.S. Sugar Corp.
today announced that it has
entered into an agreement with
Coskata, Inc. of Warrenville, IL
to explore building a 100 mil-
lion gallon per year cellulosic
ethanol facility in Clewiston,
Florida. The facility would be
the world's largest second gen-
eration ethanol facility.
It would convert left-over
sugar cane material into etha-
nol and would help Florida
meet its aggressive second gen-
eration ethanol mandate set by
Governor Charlie Crist.
"We are very excited to
be formally negotiating with
Coskata to deploy their indus-


try leading conversion technol-
ogy," said U.S. Sugar's Sr. Vice
President of Public Affairs Rob-
ert Coker. "We see this technol-
ogy as a perfect complement to
our existing sugar mill, not to
mention a win for the environ-
ment, the farming community
and for our employees."
The non-food based ethanol
could reduce greenhouse gas-
ses by as much as 96% versus
conventional gasoline.
U.S. Sugar plans to collect
cane leaves from the field ver-
sus burning them, as well as
utilize excess bagasse from the
mill.
The Coskata technology,
which is able to convert almost
any renewable material, is ex-
pected to produce fuel ethanol
with manufacturing costs of
around $1 per gallon.


As the State of Florida takes
some of the U.S. Sugar lands
out of production for the Ever-
glades restoration project, the
Coskata technology is flexible
enough to also use fast grow-
ing energy crops and waste
materials to make the environ-
mentally superior fuel.
As part of the agreement,
U.S. Sugar will be submitting
an application to the Florida
Energy Office for a financial
match to their contribution for
early engineering on this proj-
ect.
In addition, U.S. Sugar plans
to work with the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture to secure
some of the loan guarantee
monies that have been set aside
specifically for the production
of non-food based biofuels.


Whidden prepares
for new role

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- As a high
school wrestler, Steve Whid-
den was accustomed to feeling
the pressures of being the un-
derdog.
His sports career in LaBelle
saw him quickly scale the ranks
of the wrestling world -- despite
his size -- and his father to this
day believes he could have
been the top wrestler in the
state had he kept it up.
But countless matches could
not have prepared him for the
battle on election night.
On that day, Nov. 4, Mr.
Whidden felt all the uncertainty
that comes with the culmina-
tion of a months-long effort to
assume the top law enforce-
ment position in the county.
"It was by far the most stress
I've been in my life," remem-
bers Mr. Whidden. "And then
it was the happiest night of my
life."
The celebration is short-
lived as the sheriff-elect faces
some fundamentally new hur-
dles that will require creative
thinking to address: including
a challenging budget and an
overcrowded jail.
While he says he won't have
specific answers until he gets to
work, he promises to face these
issues head on.
Mr. Whidden will have to
work around the limitations of
his budget. Tough economic
times have meant that most
county departments have taken


a hit, and that was no different
for the sheriff's office.
The plan is to beef up pa-
trol without having to go to the
county commissioners for help,
he said.
The 36 year-old's primary
concern is the organization
of the department and his
thoughts on this almost guar-
antee that there will be a con-
siderable shake-up at the law
enforcement agency when he
becomes sheriff.
Mr. Whidden is careful to
say that the present adminis-
tration is not "top-heavy" but
contains many "duplicated, un-
justified positions," or jobs that
could altogether be eliminated
without drastically affecting op
erations.
He pointed to at least one
position, that of inspector, that
he intends to cut.
"I never could find a job de
scription, and that position is
paid $66,000," said Mr. Whid-
den. "That's a lot of money for
not knowing what they do."
He also criticizes the role of
administration director, as well
as the assistants serving under
the major directors of the de-
partment.
"This is only a 196-man de-
partment, it's not that big to pay
a person to do a job and then
pay another person another
$30,000 (to help them do the
job)," the sheriff-elect said.
His focus as he assumes the
job in January will be to elimi-
nate those positions he feels
are not critical, and utilize the
money for paying for additional
deputies.

Hendry County eyes new insurance policy


Newest cost-cutting
effort jumpstarted
by residents

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- In times of
tough economic conditions, very
few businesses and agencies
around the country are spared
from their turn at the butcher's
table.
Cutting out the fat and the ex-
cess is a more common practice
as the uncertainty enveloping
the world's financial markets


continues. There is a measured
decrease in federal and state
dollars, which trickle into small
governments such as Hendry
County.
Reviews of insurance policies
by municipalities and govern-
ments is a standard issue dis-
cussion -- which group provides
the best coverage and at what
price?
Some cities and counties re
view this on a regular basis, but,
often, the insurance policies are
completely overlooked.
"I've been doing some check-
ing into Hendry County's insur-
ance," Trish Arnold told com-


missioners. "I have a couple of
clients that are commercial carri
ers and they're saying the insur-
ance market is extremely soft,
that insurance companies are
wanting business and rates have
gone way down."
Presently, the county is a
member of Public Risk Manage-
ment (PRM) of Ft. Myers, which
carries both the property/casual-
ty and health insurance for Hen
dry County.
PRM operates as an insur-
ance pool that focuses mainly on
offering its coverage to cities and
governments, especially smaller
ones such as Hendry County.


Hendry has been with PRM
since 1987, but some residents
say it is time for a change. Being
a part of an insurance pool does
not necessarily translate into the
best deal for a county, they say,
especially when the number of
participants in that pool dwin-
dles.
With a large chunk of the
county's operating budget paid
out to insurance firms each year
-- an approximate $4.5 million --
any savings realized here would
help the county.
"About $3 million of that
would be in health insurance. If
it's $3 million and we can knock


60 percent off that, that's a ton
of money," said Ernie Redish,
who runs an insurance com
pany in Clewiston. "Let's get this
thing together and get some bid
prices."
Under the current agreement,
the county must notify PRM of its
plans to cancel a full year before
terminating. The county has until
March to send that notice to opt
out of the next year's coverage.
During the Nov. 12 county
meeting, Ms. Kennington-Korf
suggested that PRM join a work-
shop with county officials, so

The 14-year-old
crashed vehicle into
a telephone pole

By Nina G. Wills
Special to The Clewiston News
CLEWISTON --A 14-year-old
joy rider driving her grandmoth-
er's Cadillac sedan led local law
enforcement on a police chase
after fleeing the scene of a traf
fic stop during the early morn-
ing hours on Sunday, Nov. 16.
When questioned why she
sped away from the police, the
girl, who is not even old enough
to hold a learner's permit, sim-


ply answered, "I was scared."
Jessica Montoya, of Pem-
broke Pines, was driving with a
female passenger east on U.S.
27 at approximately 5:05 a.m.
when an officer noticed the ve
hicle traveling at a high rate of
speed.
The officer's radar detector
registered the vehicle traveling
at 72 mph in a posted 45 mph
zone, according to a report re
leased by the Clewiston Police
Department.
The driver initially stopped
the black sedan at U.S. 27 and
Iris Road.
When the officer ap-
proached the vehicle for the
routine traffic stop, the vehicle


slowly inched forward and the
driver did not heed the officer's
multiple orders to stop.
The driver then reportedly
sped away from the scene. The
officer pursued the vehicle,
winding through residential
neighborhoods on the west
side of Clewiston.
At the intersection of West
Ventura and Trocadero Avenue,
the driver lost control of the ve-
hicle and crashed. The vehicle
slid into a fence and hit a tele-
phone pole which snapped in
half.
Residents near the scene
reported waking to the sound

INI/Nena Bolan
Shortly before 5 a.m. on Nov. 16, a vehicle that was urgently
pursued by local law enforcement came to an abrupt halt at
the intersection of West Ventura and Trocadero Avenue in
a residential area on the west end of Clewiston. The strong
smell of overheated tires and brakes was obvious to neigh-
bors who were jolted out of bed.

Glades Day loses regular-season finale to Jupiter


Moore Haven finishes
season strong with a
big win

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE Glades Day's
regular season is now completed,
but not in the way they would
have liked.
In the Gators 28-13 loss to Ju-
piter Christian, a glaring weakness
was badly exposed yet again.
The defense may have al-
lowed Clewiston's Darris Hughes
and Okeechobee's Lonnie Pryor
to rush for more than 300 yards
each on them in their early-sea-
son loses to the two teams.
But Glades Day hadn't allowed
one team to have three players
rush for more than 100 yards in
a game.
That is, until they clashed
with the defending Class 1B state
champions, who are now riding a
23-game winning streak heading
into the playoffs this week.
It was expected that Eagles
fullback Will Powers would rush
for more than 100 yards against
Glades Day he finished with 22
carries for 113 yards, including
a 4-yard touchdown run in the
opening quarter.
However, it was arguably the
play of quarterback Marshyl Roth
man that propelled Jupiter Chris
tian to victory on Friday, Nov. 14.
The quarterback, already lim-
ited by an injury to his throwing
shoulder, threw only three pass-
es, with two completions for 23
yards.
Unfortunately for Glades Day,
one of Rothman's throws was


a 15-yard touchdown strike to
wideout Danny Meyer later in the
first half.
With the Gators down 13-0 go-
ing into halftime, they knew that
their offense would have to click
on all cylinders if it wanted to pull
off the upset win.
In short, it just didn't happen
for them, save for a third-quarter
67 yard touchdown run by eighth
grade running back Kelvin Taylor
(11 carries for 88 yards).
Rothman rushed for two fourth
quarter touchdowns to seal Jupi-
ter Christian's win.
Rothman, who finished with
15 carries for 169 yards, scored on
a 66-yard run early in the fourth,
followed by a 1-yard score to end
the game.
Jupiter Christian tailback Aus-
tin Lewis, who ran in a 2-point
conversion after Rothman's 66-
yard touchdown, led all runners
with 19 carries for 172 yards.
In all, though Glades Day's
pass defense looked effective, the
run defense allowed a season
high 451 yards on an astoninsh-
ing 56 carries to Jupiter Christian.
Bo Schlecter finished with
7-for-15 passing with 106 yards
and a touchdown, including a
46-yard strike to Alex Mann in the
fourth quarter.
Jupiter Christian, the state's
unaminous No. 1 team in Class
1B, according to the latest and fi-
nal Associated Press High School
poll, finished the regular season
with a 10-0 record and is expect
ed to repeat as state champions
next month.
Glades Day, who began the
season as the AP's No. 1 team in
Class 1A, received no votes in the
season's final poll as they head


into the Class 1A playoffs with a
disappointing 5-5 record.
Fortunately for the Gators,
they'll be playing at home tomor-
row night against Indian Rocks,
who they handily defeated in the
first round of last year's Class 1A
playoffs.
If Glades Day wins the playoff
opener, as expected, they'll be
facing the winner of the Evangeli
cal Christian-Fort Meade game.
Fort Meade will be Glades
Day's likely opponent in the Nov.
28 Class 1A regional champion-
ship game, should the two first
round games end as expected.
For Glades Day to make it to
the Class 1A state game in Orlan-
do on Dec. 12, it must suddenly
become an effective run-stopping
defensive team.
Moore Haven 58, Central
Fla. Christian Orlando 20:
The Terriers enjoyed their
three-hour bus ride home from
Orlando on Nov. 14 after pulling
off an impressive season-ending
victory.
Though Moore Haven's young
defense allowed 20 first-half
points to the Eagles, the offense
came back to life, scoring 46 first-
half points of their own.
Dalton Britt (7-for-17 passing,
181 yards, 4 TDs) threw for three
touchdowns in the first half, in-
cluding an opening 32-yard strike
to wideout Elazarus Blackmon,
his only catch of the game.
After Central Fla. Christian
quarterback Luke Brigham threw
for a 16 yard touchdown to Dar
ius Lis to put the Eagles ahead,
8-7, in the opening quarter, the
Terriers scored three consecutive
touchdowns.
Those scores included a 77-


Okeechobee manhandles Tigers


Luckily, it was a contest that
really meant nothing more than
bragging rights between the op-
posite ends of Lake Okeechobee
and a featured match up of two
of the best running backs in Flor-
ida. The Brahmans and Tigers
both had already secured playoff
berths. Both teams were hoping
to finish the regular season 8-2,
for the Tigers it was a record that
most local supporters thought
unimaginable at the outset of the
year. In the end, Clewiston fin
ished with a highly respectable
7-3 record, a perfect 4-0 in dis-
trict play, with losses against top
ranked Glades Central, Plantation
American Heritage and the Class
4A Brahmans.
Okeechobee took the opening
kickoff and marched 67 yards on 8
snaps to go on top when quarter-
back Garrett Madrigal hit speedy
wideout Mike Minando with a 24-
yard pass. The Tigers came roar-
ing right back with a clock-eating
12 play drive covering 80 yards.
Senior tailback Darris Hughes
scampered the final 13 yards on
a sweep with two minutes left in
the quarter. The biggest play on
the drive was a pass from Isandro
Marquez to fullback Joey Cor
dova in the flats that got turned
up field for an impressive 22-yard
gain with several Brahmans taken
along for the ride. The long drive
and keeping the ball out of the
hands of the Brahmans' offense
might have been a strategy for a
chance to win the game. Unfor-
tunately, the rest of the night was
largely made up of short offensive
drives by the Tigers and no ability
to control the ball.
The Tiger defense played the
first half with all of their heart.
Just when it appeared that they
would head to intermission with a
7-7 game, Brahmans star tailback
Lonnie Pryor caught a Madrigal
swing pass and avoided tacklers
to score from 21 yards out with
only 23 seconds remaining.
The second half offered some
early opportunities for the Tiger of-
fense. They recovered an onside
kickoff at midfield to begin the
half but went three and out. The

Brahmans then moved 80 yards
and scored on a two yard dive
by Pryor. Tiger Damion Smith
returned the ensuing kickoff 46
yards to the Brahman 49. On
third down, Okeechobee picked
off an errant Marquez pass. It was
the first of four interceptions by
the Brahmans during the second
half.
Clewiston finally got a drive
going in the final period when
defensive back John Williams
picked off a Madrigal pass and
returned it 12 yards to the Tiger
47. Marquez got hot and hooked
up on passes to Jamarcus Smith
for 17, Damarian Alien for 11 and
and Damion Smith 7. Jamarcus
Smith also chipped in with a 12-
yard run. Hughes got the final 5
yards with 7:59 left in the game.
But it was too little and too late
for Clewiston. Their defense was
worn out from the clock control-
ling Brahmans' offense and just
ran out of gas.
Defensively, Leonard Newton
made 10 solo tackles and had 2
assists from his linebacker posi-
tion. Defensive tackle LaMarcus
Thicklin also had a solid night
with 8 tackles and 2 assists.
In the battle of the great run
ning backs, Tiger Darris Hughes
more than held his own with 148
yards on 18 carries and some
hard, tackle busting efforts. Pryor
had 185 yards on 26 runs and 45
of those came late in the game
against an exhausted Tiger de
fense. Hughes finished the year
with 1,797 yards rushing, far
eclipsing Thomas Washington's
1,527 yards in 1990. From a ca-
reer perspective, Hughes ended
with 3,009 yards rushing on 379
rushes. That places him as the
second best all time rusher be-
hind Washington's 3,753 yards on
533 carries. Hughes average per
carry of 9.1 yards was the highest
ever for a Tiger, bettering Kelvin
Robinson's 8.0 average during the
1992 season.
The Tigers will host Mulberry
this Friday in the first round of the
Class 2A regional playoffs. Mul-
berry was runner-up to Tampa
Catholic in District 2A-5. The Pan


others were 7-4 in the regular sea
son and most of their losses were
against good teams and by close
scores. The winner of this contest
will likely travel to face Tampa
Catholic the following week.

Good medicine for the soul


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"A cheerful heart is good medi-
cine, but a crushed spirit dries up
the bones" (Proverbs 17:22).
Science has finally caught up
with these words in the Bible that
King Solomon wrote some 3,000
plus years ago.
Laughter is good for our health
and now scientists know why.
Researchers at the University
of Maryland found that when 20
healthy volunteers smiled and
laughed while watching a com-
edy, their blood flow increased
by 22 percent, about the same
increase caused by aerobic exer-
cise.
But when volunteers watched
tension-filled scenes, their blood
flow decreased 35 percent.
The researchers stated that
laughing apparently causes the
endothelium, the tissue that lines
blood vessels, to expand, which
increases blood flow.
Laughter may also improve
arterial health by reducing men-
tal stress, which constricts vessels
and cuts blood flow.


A suggested healthy lifestyle
would include 30 minutes of ex-
ercise three times a week, and 15
minutes of hearty laughter each
day.
If we would live by the princi-
ples God gives us, we would not
only live healthier and happier
lives, but our relationships would
improve exponentially.
We can't improve on God's
plan.
The wisest thing is to get in on
it.
We can be blessed if we don't
take life so seriously that we miss
out on laughing often.
It's good medicine for the
body and the soul. In that spirit,
let me share with you some "holy
humor".
1. Two pastors were standing
by the side of the road, admiring
their brand new sign that read,
"The End Is Near! Turn Around
Now Before It's Too Late!"
A car speeds past, the driver
yelling, "Leave us alone, you re-
ligious nuts!"
Seconds later they heard from
around the curve ahead screech-


ing tires, screams, a big splash,
and then silence.
One pastor turns to the other,
"Jim, don't you think we should
have just said, "Bridge Out"?
2. The minister was preoccu-
pied with thoughts of how he was
going to ask the congregation to
come up with more money than
they were expecting for repairs to
the church building.
To make matters worse, on the
day he was going to approach the
congregation, the regular organ
ist was sick, and a substitute was
brought in at the last minute.
The substitute wanted to know
what to play.
"Here's a copy of the service,"
the minister replied, "But you'll
have to think of something to play
after I make the announcement
about the finances."
During the service, the min-
ister paused and said, "Brothers
and Sisters, we are in great diffi
culty.
The roof repairs cost twice as
much as we expected, and we
need $4,000 more.
Any of you who can pledge


$100 or more, please stand up."
At that moment, the substitute
organist played "The Star Span-
gled Banner."
And that is how the substitute
became the regular organist!
3. A minister waited in line to
have his car filled with gas just be-
fore a long holiday weekend.
The attendant worked quickly,
but there were many cars ahead
of him in front of the service sta-
tion.
Finally, the attendant motioned
him toward a vacant pump.
"Reverend," said the young
man, "sorry about the delay. It
seems as if everyone waits until
the last minute to get ready for a
long trip."
The minister smiled, "I know
what you mean. It's the same in
my business."
I close with this note from
Ralph, age 11: "Dear Pastor, I
liked your sermon on Sunday. Es-
pecially when it was finished."


The concept of Thanksgiving!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Perhaps we should rethink the
term "Thanksgiving Day."
Thanksgiving was never meant
to be shut up in a single day.
But that is what we have done
with Thanksgiving.
Perhaps we should set aside
one day for grumbling call it
"Grumbling Day" and then
live the other 364 days in a truly
thankful manner!
I don't think the Lord wants
any pompous proclamation of
thanks on one Thursday in No
vember as much as He wants a
little humble service freom us ev
ery day in the year.
In the Charles Schultz cartoon
strip "Peanuts" there is a little
character called "Pigpen."
You can barely see him for
the cloud of dust that always sur-
rounds him.
Pigpen is rarely clean.
He who is rarely clean is not a
clean person and he who is rarely


thankful is not a thankful person.
I like what Cicero once said:
"A thankful heart is not only the
greatest virtue, but the parent of
all other virtues."
It is not the happy people who
are thankful; it is the thankful
people who are happy.
Happiness and gratitude can-
not be separated.
Over an over again the Bible
admonishes us to be thankful to
God.
"Enter into His gates with
thanksgiving, and into His courts
with praise. Be thankful to Him,
and bless His name. For the Lord
is good; His mercy is everlasting,
and His truth endures to all gen-
erations" (Psalm 100:4-5).
"And let the peace of God rule
in your hearts, to which also you
were called in one body; and be
thankful" (Colossians 3:15).
Christiana Georgina Rossetti
wrote, "Were there no God, we
would be in this glorious world
with grateful hearts, and not one
to thank."


The fact that a man is thankful
implies that there must be Some-
one to be thankful to.
To whom does an athiest or a
skeptic give thanks?
Peace is seeing a sunset and
knowing Who to thank!
We should all express our
thanks to God for the things we
take for granted.
Be thankful for your mind with
which to think, reason and dis-
cern.
Be thankful for your eyes with
which you can see, observe, read
and enjoy.
Be thankful for your ears with
which you can hear and listen to
such wonderful things as a baby's
gurgle, a child's laugh, the sound
of the wind in the trees, the rush
of a waterfall, the song of a bird.
Be thankful for your nose with
which you can enjoy the wonder-
ful aroma of pumpkin pie, hot cof-
fee, apple blossoms in the spring,
burning leaves in the Fall.
Be thankful for your mouth
with which you can kiss those


whom you love.
Be thankful for your tongue
with which you can speak to oth-
ers and share your joys and sor-
rows.
Be thankful for your hands
with which you can touch, feel,
squeeze, hold, heal and write
needed cards and letters of en-
couragement.
Be thankful for you feet with
which you can skip, run, walk,
and go into the house of the Lord,
as well as into the homes of those
who need your love and care.
Most of all, be thankful for
your heart and spirit with which
you can love God with all your
being, and love your neighbor as
yourself.
Let us be thankful for the
"little" things in life which, when
reflected upon, are really the big-
gest blessings we have.
"Bless the Lord, O my soul,
and forget not all His benefits"
(Psalm 103:2).
Let us not commit the sin of
ingratitude.

'God Don't Make No Junk'


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Gallstones will get your atten-
tion! Anybody who has had them
can tell you they will captivate all
of your energies and cause a re-
direction of life until they are re-
moved.
I remember the occasion when
my gallstones and I parted com-
pany. I could go back to a normal
life; not worrying about the next
attack or what I couldn't eat or if
I'd be interrupted in the middle
of something and double over in
pain. Shortly after the operation,
I was told to get out of bed and
stand next to it. My first instinct
was that "all my insides are go-
ing to fall out." I was assured they
wouldn't and that I'd be fine.
I was fine, in fact, and little by
little came to realize that every-
thing was returning to its' rightful
place, less the stones. The inci-
sions were healing, the need for
medications was diminishing, my
being seemed to know what to
do without any further interven-
tions or directions on my part.
I reflected on the words of
the Psalmist, "Behold, thou art
fearfully and wonderfully made
(Psalm 139:13)" and how many
forces were involved to restore
me to a fuller, more active life.
Somehow, some way the body
knew how to heal itself: some
how the revelation and healing

Holiday Bazaar
The Christian Church of Moore
Haven Ladies Group will be host-
ing their 15th annual Holiday
Bazaar on November 22, from 8
a.m. to noon, in the Fellowship
Hall at 199 Seventh street (across
Highway 27 from the B & B Gro
cery) in Moore Haven. The bazaar
will feature crafts, baked items,
plants, bread, homemade candy,
and nearly new items. Breakfast
will be served at 8-11 a.m., sau
sage gravy and biscuits, juice and
coffee or tea. Need a teacher gift,
gifts to fill a stocking, gift for co
worker, or small gift, come out
and get your Christmas shop-
ping started? Mark your calendar
and plan to come to the Christian
Church of Moore Haven Holiday
Bazaar.

Rummage, Bake Sale
The youth of Calvary Baptist
Church are having a Rummage/


arts that have been given to hu-
manity are able to work together
with God's building within us our
own instincts and capacities for
getting well.
It seems that each night as I
watch the news, a new treatment
or new discovery or breakthrough
is announced. This occurs not
only in the realm of the physical
self, but also in our mental and
spiritual selves too.
Studies have shown that
people tend to forget over time
"bad" things that have happened
to them; memories are forgot-
ten and things that once plagued
us or kept us from feeling good
about ourselves are given another
perspective. We heal our minds
as well as our bodies; worries
fade away in time and many of
the things people worry about
never come to pass anyway.
People heal themselves spiri-
tually; that also seems to be built
into us if we accept God's forgive-
ness or come to atone, or rec-
oncile, our differences. Spiritual
healing takes place and living be-
comes full of joy once more.
I can think of times when per-
sons have shared a "deep, dark
secret" and then a great burden
was lifted from them. There are
times when it takes reassurance
that we are not intended to go
on punishing ourselves or feeling
bad about ourselves; God does
not intend it to be that way and



bake sale every Saturday morn-
ing from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m. The
church is located at 1075 David-

Christmas Bazaar
The Community Presbyterian


always provides the means to re-
turn to a whole being.
Psalm 139 reminds us that the
Lord "has searched me out and
known me" (v.1) and that He is
always with us, that God has knit
us together from the beginning
(v.12) and that we unfold in our
growing as God has intended.
The Psalmist reflects on the
wonder of all of God's creating us
and then asks God to continue to
perfect him, knowing that his cre
ation points to a greater creation
one day with God in Heaven and
with everlasting life. That is the fi-
nal perfection; as we see parts of
it here and realize what God does
in us and for us.
Perfection? We're not there
yet; but we get closer and closer
with each passing day.
One person put it very suc
cinctly when she said "God don't
make no junk!" and she had it
right. The Psalmist saw it too
many years before.
Every now and again, I stop to
think about healing and the pow
ers within and without that keep
us going. We are truly "fearfully
and wonderfully made."
God certainly doesn't make
any junk; He makes us well from
the beginning and gives us the
means to make us well ever af-
terwards, and long into eternity.
Well made; no junk but look at
the Master who crafted us!


Church will be having their an-
nual Christmas Bazaar and yard
sale on Saturday, Nov. 22 from 8
a.m. to 2 p.m. There will be arts
and crafts, plenty of baked goods,
guava jelly and potted plants. We

homemade vegetable beef soup
and barbeque pork sandwiches,
plus drinks from 11:30 a.m. to 1
p.m. We are located at 407 Royal
Palm Avenue in Clewiston. We in-
vite you to come and fellowship
with us.

reach Ministry will be hosting a
country breakfast and bake sale

Letters to the Editor


After the confetti
settles
It is after a historical election
which has left some elated and
jubilant and others in shock and
astonishment. However, no mat
ter what side you were on before
the election, now is time to come
together as citizens of the greatest
nation in the world. Our freedom
is not only to voice our opinions
but to decide to put forth our best
efforts to be the driving force in
striving for a nation of excellence.
I am proud to be an American
and joyfully take my place and
accept my responsibility as one.
Furthermore, as a member of the
body of Christ, I know that God
expects me to be an example of
His love which is total acceptance
of the human race. That in itself is
the force or impulse that should
unite us to reveal through our
daily life here in our corner of the
nation that we can set aside our
differences and work together for
the good of our city, county, state,
and ultimately the country. Please
do not characterize me as naive
or ignorant for I have seen and
been a part of many things in my
lifetime that have had both good
and bad consequences. Despite
of all this, I can say God never
fails and though I might not be
in total accord with the ideals or
philosophies of those in office, I
respect the position they hold and
I assume my responsibility to this
extraordinary nation which still is
a land of opportunities. Not only
do I assume my responsibilities, I
also pray and declare: "God bless
you and may God continue to
bless America."
Sincerely,
Dr. Noemi Valentin

Keep America's
dreams alive
I have a sad story to tell you
about a sweet dream that have


come to an end. Dreams are our
hope to secure our country's fu-
ture. America gives an equal op-
portunity to her citizens to devel-
op their ideas for prosperity, and
create jobs and wealth for her
people. My heart sunk and I cried
when Marlene Kouba forwarded
the news about shutting down
sugar cane operation in Clewis-
ton, Florida. Clewiston is a small
town like my own town of Powell
and it was developed 80 years ago
when the country was experienc-
ing economic depression.
Clewiston is called America's
sweetest town it was born and
built by sugar industry. This town
is the heartland of the Florida
Everglades. The town is located
near bottom center of the Florida
state surrounded by rich black
soil known as muck that would
become its wealth. In 1931 indus-
trialist Charles Mott transferred
Clewiston and the small Southern
Sugar Co into U.S. sugar. In past
80 years since time of depression
this little sugar Co has been grow-
ing and providing jobs and eco-
nomic prosperity for the State of
Florida.. U.S. sugar has been one
of the largest sugar cane co in the
United State providing over 1700
jobs and processing 800,000 tons
of sugar a year.
The corporation is planning
to sell 300 square miles around
Clewiston to the state, which is
part of the plan to clean the Ev-
erglades. Two sugarcane refin-
eries are located in Clewiston
(owned by U.S. Sugar Corpora-
tion) and South Bay (Okeelanta
Corp.). Florida has six mills: two
are located in Belle Glade, one in
Clewiston, one in South Bay, and
two in Pahokee. $2,004,300,000 is
generated in the state of Florida
each year by the production of
sugar and corn sweetener prod-
ucts.
Bear in mind that the shrink-
ing profit margins have lead to
the closer of 53 sugar beet and
cane facilities since 1985. Every
one of these old sugar cane and
beet facilities were build by early


industrialists whom had a dream
for America.
Their dream has been profit-
able for example sugar indus-
try contributes over $10 billion
dollars annually to our nation's
economy. Sugar producers have
been operating their farms with
not much of increase in their cost
-of- living for past two decades.
According to the Bureau of La-
bor Statistic for sugar producers,
the cost of production has not
remained static like their loan
rate. Fuel costs have skyrocketed
by 177 percent, wages are up
99 percent, and equipment and
chemical cost have soared by 64
percent. Thank God that there is a
good news for U.S. sugar farmers
in the new 2007 Farm Bill, which
it was passed and signed to off-
set a fraction of sugar producer's
higher costs of production and
shrinking profit margins. The
Farm Bill has increased the loan
rates on raw sugar by five tenths
of one penny per pound, which
will be an increase of 2.7 percent.
Agriculture has united behind the
strong 2007 farm bill to make our
nation food supply more secure.
As our nation's sugar cane and
beets were being harvested this
year the crops looked good and
every one were happy but sugar
farmers got the worst news. De-
spite increasing input cost the
sugar price plunged down. Market
analysts attribute this price free
fall to an August decision by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture to
import additional subsidized for-
eign sugar, a move that the sugar
industry called "premature" at
that time.
In August at the 25th Inter-
national Sweetener Symposium
under Secretary Mark Keenum
announced that the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture would allow
an additional 300,000 tons of re-
fined sugar imports onto the U.S.
market for FY 2008. Sugar produc-
ers felt this action was premature,
and the American Sugar Alliance
issued the following statement:
"We are unaware of any sugar


buyer in this country who is hav-
ing trouble finding sugar. And,
while sugar prices have rebound-
ed in the past couple of months,
they are still far below price in-
creases for other commodities.
The USDA's actions today cast a
cloud over a sugar industry that
has been dealing with depressed
prices and soaring input costs for
some time.
Nobody listen to sugar asso
ciations worming and earlier this
month, the USDA changed its
estimates and is now forecasting
200,000 tons of additional beets
sugar on the market. Many in the
industry expect these numbers to
grow even more as sugar beets
are harvested in the Midwest and
Louisiana finishes just its season.
Early industrialists saw the
great opportunities to build in-
dustries like sugar cane and beet
facilities to grow food and provide
jobs for small towns. One can see
the result of such a dream in our
present economic and food sup-
ply security. Sweet dream that
has provided 372,000 direct and
indirect jobs in 42 states and con-
tributes $21.1 billion in positive
economic activity in America.
As citizens of this great nation
we have to make our lawmak-
ers work for our consumers the
subsidized sugar imported to this
country will not be cheap once
we lose our sugar industries. As
American it is our duty to keep
our country land of dreams come
true for our next generation.
Sincerely,
Park and Big horn county

nomic (WIFE) President and

so her office is now accepting ap-
plications for early filing of your
2009 homestead and portability

Avoid the rush in January and
February when Senior Exemption

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 "O' Hike
around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Pahokee
on Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee
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
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

Susie Lee (Burch)
Durant, 86
BELLE GLADE Susie Lee
(Burch) Durant, joined our Lord and
Savior on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008. She
was 86.
Sue was born Susie Lee Pitts on
Sept. 27, 1922, in the community of
Thigpin, Ga. She was raised in North
Florida and moved to Belle Glade in
1952 with her two sons, George and
Roy Burch.
Known for her great cooking
ability throughout the town of Belle
Glade, Sue was employed by the
Dixiana Restaurant. At the highlight
of her career she was asked to man-
age the restaurant. The customers
were so upset that she was no long-
er cooking the food that the owners
were forced to put her back in the
kitchen.
Her tremendous cooking ability is
what led Sue to the love of her life, a
customer named Bob Durant. They
were married June 26, 1965. Bob
preceded her in death and they are
now in each others arms in heaven.
Sue will be greatly missed by her
loving children, George (Bebe)
Burch, Roy (Susan) Burch, Debbie
O'Neill, and Don Durant; her seven
grandchildren; and ten great-grand-
children. Her surviving siblings in-
clude three sisters and three
brothers.


Podcasts from the Internet: Most are free!


By Diane Timmons
Okeechobee News
First, I want to say this col-
umn is not just for the tech savvy.
Please read it through and then
decide if it's worth it to find pod-
casts on your computer.
We are going to explore the
concept of the podcast today. A
podcast is a downloadable radio-
style show, organized by show
and episodes within shows. But, I
like this definition better "Person-
al On Demand broadCASTING"
or PODCAST.
Okay, personal on demand
broadcasting. What can we do
with that?
As it turns out, there are many
things we can learn from pod-
casts. I have found podcasts to be
the most eye-opening, fun, and
educational media that are on the
Internet today.
Turns out I have been listening
to podcasts since about 2005 and
didn't even know it. CBS, the TV
station, was doing podcasts about
its TV show Big Brother. I would
listen with my computer, using
Windows Media Player, to sev-
eral people commenting about
the show. And there is no need
to own an iPod or portable MP3
player. Just because your grand-
kids all carry them, doesn't mean
you need to own one to listen to
podcasts.
While doing a little research
for today's column, I found out
that podcasts were introduced in
about 2001, but didn't really get
going until 2003. That's relatively
new to my way of thinking.
Mypodcastworldreallyopened
up when I discovered iTunes. Do
you like to knit or are you into
crafts? Would you like to listen to
your favorite programs anytime?

Programs such as Apple's iTunes offer a wide variety of
downloadable content. You can choose to listen to a podcast
about gardening, or exercising, or even traveling and gour-
met eating -- there are few subjects that are not broached.


podcast episodes available from
tons of independent creators
and also from big names such as
HBO, ESPN and The New York
Times. Today, anyone can down-
load the software and start roam-
ing iTunes for its rich content. Let
me add one more thing that is
important to seniors and anyone
that needs to be frugal with their
money. I rarely spend any money
on iTunes. That's right, most pod-
casts are absolutely free!
iTunes
Start out by putting www.
itunes.com in the address line of
your browser. You will be trans-
ferred to an Apple site that seems
to be all about music and the iPod
music device. Don't let that throw
you off track. Download and in-
stall the software so you can get
to Apple's storefront when you
double click the software icon.
The icon will be added to your
desktop during the installation.


Hot or cold?

It's that time of year when the
turkey isn't the only thing getting
stuffed.
Many people stuff themselves
with lots of good food around the
holidays!
Please remember food safety
when preparing your holiday
meal.
It doesn't matter if you've
cooked many turkeys, or if this
year might be your first, you still
need to remember food safety
when you thaw, prepare, and
cook your holiday bird.

You need to be online when you
open the software.
On the left of your screen, you
will see the classifications
-Library (this shows what is
on your own hard drive on your
computer)
-iTunes Store (this is the one
you want to select)
-Playlists (this is where you can
classify the items you download)
The iTunes store is pretty easy
to navigate and since this column
is all about podcasts, that's what
I'm going to focus on.
1. Click on iTunes Store. You
will see the screen is divided into
panels.
2. Click on podcasts. You will
find it listed under the iTunes
STORE panel on the left side of
the screen.
3.All of the panels on the
screen are now all about pod-
casts. You will find a list of the top
podcasts that have been down-


loaded. Or, categories of podcasts
such as the arts or hobbies. There
are podcasts that discuss books,
sports, TV shows and movies.
The list goes on.
4. Click on a category such
as Fantasy Football (or any that
interest you). The top half of the
screen usually shows the subject
of the podcasts that are then listed
on the bottom half of the screen.
The items are listed by subject,
such as Preseason update, and
the date it was recorded and you
may see the duration of the pod-
cast.
5. Download. Over to the
far right click on Get Episode to
download that podcast. If the
podcast is free it will clearly state
free.
6. It won't seem like much is
happening, but over to the left
of your screen, next to the word
Downloads, a little icon is spin-
ning that indicates the download
is taking place. You can click the
word downloads and it shows the
progress of the download.
7. Where do you find the pod
cast you just downloaded? On
the left of your screen, under the
word LIBRARY, click on podcasts.
This will reveal the podcast you
just downloaded. If you down-
load a number of podcasts, they
will list alphabetically.
8. Listening to the podcast. Be-
cause Apple has included a player
with the software, all you need do
is double click the podcast name
and it will begin to play. In this
case the Fantasy Football pod-
cast.
9. Notice the word Subscribe
near the title of the podcast you
just downloaded. This capability
is what makes podcasting spe-
cial. You can use it or not depend-

intestinal tract.
Salmonella typically lives in the
intestines of animals and humans
and exit the body through feces.
Humans become infected
most frequently through contami-
nated food sources, such as poul-
try, meat and eggs.
Typically, people with salmo-
nella infection develop diarrhea,
fever and abdominal cramps
within 12 to 72 hours.
So to make sure Salmonella
isn't an un-invited guest at your
holiday meal, take a few mo-
ments to review some food safety
tips:
Your first thought should be
how to thaw out your turkey
safely.
Give yourself plenty of time to
leave your turkey in the refrigera-
tor until it's fully thawed.
Do not leave your turkey in the
sink overnight!

Although flat and open, the sunset.


Temperatures between 40*
and 140*Fahrenheit is considered
the "danger zone" because food
borne bacteria can multiply rapid-
ly within this temperature range.
Bacteria can be present on
raw turkey and chicken, which
can contaminate your hands,
countertops, and sinks.
Remember to wash your
hands and any surfaces that your
raw turkey has come into contact
with.
It's safer to cook your stuff-
ing in a separate dish rather than
inside the turkey, but if you are
preparing the "traditional" stuffed
turkey, rinse the inside of the tur-
key thoroughly with clean water.
Stuff the turkey just before you
are ready to put it in the oven.
Use a food thermometer to
make sure the center of the stuff-
ing reaches a safe temperature of
165*F

School
Nestle Pure Life Water bot-
tle project
Westside elementary has been
hard at work this school year. One
of the major yearlong projects the
students and faculty are working


on is the Nestle Pure Life Water
Bottle collection. The school is
collecting not only the bottles for
recycling, but the labels from the
Nestle bottles. The labels are then
saved and redeemed for physi-
cal education equipment for the
school. The biggest goal is to save
more labels than any other reg-
istered school in the nation! The


one school who saves the most
during the months of September
through February will learn a
new playground for their school!
So far, Westside has collected
nearly 5,000 labels. Our goal is
over 15,000. Westside invites
the community to join us in our
quest for new physical education
equipment and the possibility of


a new playground. For anyone
interested in helping us reach our
goal, please call 863-983-1570 and
a representative from the school
will be more than happy to pick
up the bottles and the labels!

Students surprise Teacher
Third Grade teacher, Janet Jacks, had a big surprise when
she showed up at school this past week: her students had
snuck in after school the day before and decorated the
classroom as a birthday surprise.


On Friday, Oct. 31 CMS par-
ticipated in its own homecom-
ing festivities. The early release
day was chock full of fun. Grade
level competitions tested stu-
dents' spirit for the great blue
and gold. Chain links were
purchased by students in each
grade in an attempt to create
the longest chain to win the
spirit trophy. The chains were
put to the distance test on the
track at Cane field. The blue and
gold paper chains literally mea-
sured nearly half way around


the track. In the end, the eighth
grade showed their spirit could
go the distance.
Other activities continued
throughout the morning. Grades
organized fun activities to evoke
the good cheer for the night's
game. Sixth grade once again
hosted its Homecoming Hap
openings with activity booths of
all sorts. CMS would like to thank
all the volunteers, teachers, and
staff that helped create the spirit
of warmth and community.

Drug use is down overall among teens, survey says


TALLAHASSEE-Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp announced signifi-
cant reductions in cigarette smok-
ing and binge drinking among
Florida's middle school and high
school students since 2000, as re-
ported by the 2008 Florida Youth
Substance Abuse Survey.
In contrast to the significant
reductions being made each year,
the 2008 survey confirms the con-
tinuing trend of prescription drug
abuse and highlights the need for
future prevention efforts.
The Florida Office of Drug
Control, state agencies, law en-
forcement, substance abuse pre-
vention coalitions, schools and
community stakeholders have
partnered to reduce substance
abuse across the state.
"Children are Florida's most
vulnerable residents, and pro-
tecting them from the dangers of
substance abuse is tremendously
important," said Lt. Governor
Kottkamp.
"Drug abuse threatens the
health and safety of our children


and their families. The survey is
vital to understanding how to pre-
vent drug use."
According to the survey, which
has been administered every year
since 2000, drug use among
Florida's middle and high school
students is down in 10 of 11 areas
consistently measured over the
history of the survey.
From 2007 to 2008, among
middle and high school students,
past 30-day use of alcohol and
binge drinking declined signifi
cantly.
Long-term trends documented
from 2000 to 2008 include:
Cigarette smoking is cut in
half: The past 30-day use of ciga-
rettes among middle and high
schoolers is at 9 percent, down
from 18 percent in 2000.
Binge drinking declines by
4 percentage points since 2000:
Binge drinking, defined as hav-
ing five or more drinks in a row
sometime during the previous
two weeks, currently stands at 15
percent, down from 19 percent in


2000.
Use of any illegal drug other
than marijuana continues to de-
cline: The percent of students
who report using any illegal drug
other than marijuana has de-
clined by 24 percent since 2000
and now stands at a historically
low 6.6 percent.
Early initiation continues
to decline: Research confirms
that if our youth make it to adult
hood without experimenting with
drugs, they are far less likely to
start using later in life. The 2008
survey documents an important
decline in the percentage of high
school students who first used al-
cohol (by 8.6 percentage points),
tobacco (by 19.5 percentage
points), and marijuana (by 6.7
percentage points) before the age
of 14.
New question on over-
the-counter drugs: For the first
time, middle schoolers were
asked about their use of over-the-
counter drugs such as cold and
cough medications in order to


get high. The lifetime prevalence
rate of over-the-counter drug
abuse (4.9 percent) is higher than
the rate for any illegal drug except
marijuana.
Prescription drugs emerging
as a dangerous source of abuse:
4.5 percent of high school seniors
report abusing prescription pain
relievers in the past 30 days, and
3.8 percent report abusing pre-
scription depressants -more than
any other illegal drug (excluding
marijuana). Results from the 2002
survey (the first time this question
was asked) were nearly identical,
indicating a continuing trend in
prescription drug abuse.
"The 2008 report suggests ma-
jor progress in reducing under-
age drinking," said Office of Drug
Control Director Bill Janes.
"Prevalence rates for the vast
majority of drugs monitored by
the FYSAS have been significantly
reduced over the past eight years.
This is a testament to the tremen-
dous progress the state has made
toward enhancing the preven-


tion infrastructure in the areas of
assessment, strategic planning,
and implementation of evidence-
based programs and policies. Our
communities are making a real
difference."
"While drug use is down over-
all, parents need to be acutely
alert to the dangers posed by le-
gally accessible substance like
inhalants, alcohol, prescription
drugs, and over-the-counter med-
ications. Parents need to do their
part to keep young people safe by
restricting the availability of these
substances within their homes
and by closely monitoring their
children's activities," Janes said.
Florida's Drug Control Strat-
egy acknowledges that there is
no one-size-fits-all approach to
ensuring that children, families,
and communities are healthy and
safe.
Florida's diverse communities
must prioritize their needs and
select the most effective strategies
that will be used to tackle their
unique profile of substance abuse


problems.
The continued support of com-
munity anti-drug coalitions is vital
to prevention efforts throughout
the state.
In addition, the dramatic prog-
ress the state has made in reduc-
ing youth alcohol, tobacco, and
other drug use is a result of the
ongoing expansion of our com-
munity-based efforts and the sup-
port of state agencies.
Florida's youth survey mea
sures youth substance use annu
ally across the state, and in alter
nate years, in each county.
The 2008 edition included
91,471 valid returns from sixth
through 12th graders in 66 of
Florida 's 67 counties. (Sarasota
County is not included among
the counties surveyed because it
chose to administer an internal
survey that is not comparable
to the Florida Youth Substance
Abuse Survey.)

line at www.dcf.state.fl.us/men-

Take November to
recognize American
Diabetes Month

By Brenda Barnes

November is recognized as
American Diabetes Month.
Diabetes is a disease where
the body doesn't produce insulin
or when your body doesn't use
insulin properly.
Insulin is a hormone that your


body needs to convert sugar,
starches and other foods into en-
ergy, and of course we all need
energy for our daily lives!
Over 24 million people in the
U.S. have diabetes.
Each year over 193,000 people
die from diabetes and its compli-
cations.
There are two different kinds
of diabetes.
Type-1 diabetes is when the
body fails to produce insulin.
People with this type have to
get daily shots of insulin to sur-


vive.
Type-2 diabetes is when the
body fails to make enough insulin
or properly use insulin.
About 90% to 95% of all di-
agnosed cases of diabetes are
Type-2 diabetes.
Typically Type-2 diabetes de-
velops after the age of 45.
Some of the signs of diabetes
can include excessive thirst, ex
treme hunger, unusual weight
loss, increased tiredness, in-
creased irritability and blurry vi-
sion. Sometimes family history


plays a part in whether a person
develops diabetes, but other fac-
tors such as being over weight or
lack of exercise appear to play a
role as well.
Also, African Americans, His-
panics and Native Americans are
at a higher risk of diabetes.
When a person has diabetes,
they also have an increased risk
of heart attack, stroke, kidney dis
ease, or blindness.
There is no known cure for
diabetes, but there is treatment.
Diet, exercise and new medi-


cines can prevent or delay much
of the illness and complications
of diabetes. Did you know that
there is also something known as
pre-diabetes?
Pre-diabetes is a blood glucose
level higher than normal, but not
high enough to be diagnosed as
diabetes.
Ask your doctor about getting
tested. If your number is between
110-125, then you are in the pre-
diabetes range.
Keep in mind that a 5-10% re-
duction in body weight produces


a 58% reduction in diabetes.
Take action now! Get at least
30 minutes of physical activity ev-
ery day.
Dance, walk the dog, play with
your kids!
Eat healthier. Learn serving
sizes.
Do as your mom told you, eat
your vegetables! Get tested!
(Brenda Barnes is the Public Infor-
mation Officer and Planning Consul-
tant for the Hendry & Glades County
Health Departments).

The 2008 Elks S.E. Dis-
trict Soccer Shoot was
held on Nov. 15 at the Ju-
piter Community Park, in
Jupiter.
The event was a tre
mendous success, reiter-
ated by the smiles on all
of the boys and girls who
competed and the enthu-
siasm displayed by the
parents and spectators,
cheering them on.
The competitors com-
prised the winners from
the Local Soccer Shoot
from both the Jupiter and
the Clewiston Lodges.
Fellow Elk member
from the Clewiston Lodge,
Mr. Martin Espinoza, did
an outstanding job with
his players, who displayed


great sportsmanship though out
the competition, as did the par-
ents and their guests, which was
met at the same level by the Jupi-
ter competitors and their parents
and guests.
It was a great day for all! Spe-
cial thanks to Jupiter Elk, Mr. Don
Shedlock, again, for his unselfish
ness and generous donation of
his time and his knot-tieing ex-
pertise.

that any questions about Hen-
dry's policy could be answered.
Residents argued that such a
meeting would be necessary, but
without the insurance group at
the table.
According to Ms. Arnold, the
county can seek help from the
Florida League of Cities, which
can provide its guidance and ac-
tually bring back bids from com-
peting companies at no charge to

Increased presence on the
streets is important, he said.
Following in line with that
goal, he plans to make good on
his campaign promise to have a
larger presence in Montura, with
the hopes of putting at least one
full-time deputy in the area.
Though he hands it to Sher-
iff Ronnie Lee for putting many
grow houses out of operation,
Mr. Whidden said it is the lack of
patrol in those rural areas that at-
tract drug dealers.
"There are a lot more grow
houses in Montura than have
been caught," he said.
Beyond the issues of financial
constraints, the key to running an
efficient department is the contin-


the county.
The League of Cities can, ac
cording to resident Ramon Igle
sias, take the policy documents
and "compare apples to apples."
The commission agreed and
ordered the county to establish a
committee to request the policy
from PRM and study the rates and
what other options are available
to the county.
"This market's changing so
much," said Mr. Redish. "If we're
going to do this, we need to do
it now."

ued training of deputies, he said.
Presently, he feels that deputies
have not been afforded the op-
portunity to further their knowl-
edge and some may benefit from
learning to properly deal with
residents.
"We will be reprogramming
them on how to patrol, how they
deal with people," he said.
Looking back at election night,
he said it is simple to see why
people voted for him.
"In the local races and the na-
tional races, there was a great re-
sponse. People were just ready for
a change. I am excited, enthused

The Ais and Jeaga Indian Nations


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The cold winds blew down
the long meandering lagoon,
striking the palmetto clad shelter
that stood solidly along its shores.
Palmetto fronds rattled and shook
as gusting winds prowled around
the shelter seeking weaknesses in
the interlaced fronds.
A defiant fire burned a hot,
reddish white that sent rising
waves of warm air to meet the as
saults of the invasive cold winds.
People seated along the walls of
the interior laughed merrily in the
glowing, warm light of the fire,
as broiled fish and oysters were
served on palmetto leafs.
This story reflects the lives of
Jeaga and Ais Indians living along
the shores of Indian River. Today
we will take "A Walk in The Past"
and read some 'Tall Tales' by Fon-
tenado and Jonathan Dickinson
about those long bygone days.
The Jeaga Indians lived in Palm
Beach, Martin and St. Lucie Coun-
ties. Their territories bordered
the Tequesta Indian nation to the
south and the Ais Indian nation
to the north. Very little is known
about the Jeaga Indians because
there are no documents written
by castaways and only a few by
Spanish priests.
Some Archeologists think the
Jeaga Indians may have been
a tribe of the Ais Indian Nation.
Fontanedo states in his memoirs
that his information on the Ais
and Jeaga Indians came from
other captives that he had spo
ken with during his captivity. He
also stated; "I speak four Indian
languages, but not the language
of the Ais or Jeaga, which is a
country I never traveled into." It
sounds like he is identifying the


Ais and Jeaga as one nation. Note
that he speaks four languages,
but asserts he can't speak the lan-
guage of the Ais and Jeaga, which
he addresses as one language.
The Ais Indian territories
started in present day Ft. Pierce,
extending to the north as far as
Cape Canaveral, and westward to
the St. Johns River. Fontanedo's
memoirs written in 1575, briefly
provide some information on the
Ais and Jeaga Indians. He said;
"The king of Ais and the king of
Jeaga are poor Indians, as re-
spects the land; for there are no
mines of silver or gold where they
are; and, in short, they are rich
only by the sea, from the many
vessels that have been lost well
laden with these metals."
In 1563, the head chief of the
Ais Indians was called Oathaqua.
In 1597, Governor Mendez de
Canco reported Oathaqua had
more Indians under him than any
other Indian nation he had con-
tact with. The large population
was due to the bounty of food
found along the Indian River.
Documents and archeological
finds reveal their diets were rich
in fish, turtle and shellfish. They
also ate cocoplums, palm berries
and other gathered fruit.
The best accounts we have
on the Ais Indians came from
a Quaker business man, Jona
than Dickinson, who was ship
wrecked in 1696, on the coast of
the Ais Indians, while sailing from
Jamaica to Pennsylvania. His fam-
ily and the ship's crew survived
the ship-wreck, but experienced
great hardships and deaths as
they followed the Florida coast
from present day Ft. Pierce to St.
Augustine. The survivors even-
tually made their way from St.


Augustine to Pennsylvania and
Jonathan Dickinson later wrote a
journal of his experiences.
In his journal, Jonathan Dick-
inson wrote about the clothing at-
tire of the Ais male Indians; "The
Indian men with hair tied in a
roll and secured with two bones
shaped like a broad arrow and a
spear point. The men wore apiece
of platwork of straws wrought of
diver colors and of a triangular
figure, with a belt of four fingers
broad and the same wrought to-
gether, which goeth about the
waist and the angle of the other
having a thing to it, coming be-
tween the legs, and strings to the
end of the belt; all three meet-
ing together are fastened with a
bunch of silk- grass."
He described the villages;
"The shelters were forty feet long
and twenty-five feet wide, cov-
ered with palmetto leaves both
top and sides. There were a range
of cabins, or a barbecue on one
side and the two ends. At the en-
tering on one side of the house, a
passage was made of benches on
each side leading to the cabins.
On these benches sat the chief In-
dians, and at the upper end of the
cabin was the Casseekey seated."
Jonathan Dickinson described
their meals; "They ate boiled
fish served on palmetto leaf. The
Indians, sat crosslegged in the
wigwam eating palmetto ber
ries. They also served oysters".
Shellfish, especially oysters, were
very plentiful along the Indian
River, which runs from Ft. Pierce
to Cape Canaveral. An army doc-
tor, stationed at Jupiter in the
Second Seminole War, said the
oysters were in great abundance
and were ten inches long. He also
stated that one man with a throw


line could catch enough fish in
several hours to feed a hundred
men.
Dickinson wasn't very com-
plimentary when describing the
palmetto berries, which all the
Indians ate; "They gave us some
of their berries to eat. We tasted
them, but not one amongst us
could suffer them to stay in our
mouths; for we could compare
the taste of them to nothing else,
but rotten cheese steeped in to-
bacco". It sounds like there was
no tipping at the dinner table that
night.
Fontanedo expounds on the
riches taken by the Ais; "I desire
to speak of the riches found by
the Indians of Ais, which per-
haps were as much as a million
dollars, or over, in bars of silver,
in gold, and in articles of jewelry
made by the hands of Mexican In-
dians, which the passengers were
bringing with them. These things
Carlos divided with the caciques
of Ais, Jaega, Guancata, Maya-
juaco, and Mayaca, and he took
what pleased him, or for the best
part."
There will be other 'Tall Tales'
in next week's edition of "A Walk
in The Past" when we learn about
some forgotten neighbors, the
Mayaimi Indians that once lived
on the shores of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
