$588 million bid for U.S. Sugar


Investment group
takes deal directly to
shareholders

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -U.S. Sugar ex
isting 10 years from now.
The continuation of 1,700
jobs.
A sale to the state of Florida.
A lawsuit leveled at the top
executives of the sugar giant.

rence family?
The only certainty in Clewis-
ton nowadays is the uncertainty.
In the wake of an announce-
ment by U.S. Sugar that it would
sell much of its land for $1.34 bil-
lion to the South Florida Water
Management District for the pur-
poses of rehabilitating the Ever-
glades, the company has a new
offer to contend with.
Officials are approaching the
offer sensitively, given the fact
that its previous interactions with
the group ended in a lawsuit.
In a letter to the company,


Gaylon M. Lawrence Jr. -- who
along with his father Gaylon Sr.
operates the Lawrence Group,
a Nashville-based investment
group -calls on individual stock
holders to take a good, hard look
at the figures on the table.
At $300 per share, the group
reasons that the offer represents
a better tangible value than the
deal put forth by the state of
Florida to buy out the sugar com-
pany.
Taken at face value, the $365-
per-share deal by the state car-
ries too many shifting variables


to stockholders, Mr. Lawrence
Jr. writes. The amount of tax that
would be required to be paid by
the company, and its existing
debt obligations, makes the deal
with the state a less attractive op-
tion, the group said.
"Our offer would provide
shareholders with $300 in cash
per share immediately," said Mr.
Lawrence Jr. "Our offer is a win
for everyone: the employees,
the local communities, the en-
vironment, the taxpayers, and
particularly your shareholders.

Prices have fallen
50 percent in two
months

By Nina G. Wills
Special to The Clewiston News
Many drivers could not be-
lieve their eyes: $1.96 posted on
a local gas station's marquee
last Friday, Nov. 21. A long line
of vehicles wrapped around the
Shamrock gas station as drivers
patiently waited for their turn at
the pump.
Gas prices have plummeted
nearly 50 percent in the last
two months and motorists are
breathing a sigh of relief.
"Thank God!" said an excited
Jennifer Garrett, who was refuel-

The last time the price of gas
was below $2 a gallon was three
years ago in March 2005, accord-

steadily risen and hit an all-time
high of $4 a gallon this summer.
Many people canceled sum-

Day in the life
program reaches
out to students

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- About 47
high school students from
throughout the area were in
Clewiston Nov. 14 studying the
goings-on of nurses and other
medical professionals at Hen-
dry Regional Medical Center.
The group featured mostly
young girls -although a few
gentlemen did accompany
them -- who have expressed an


interest in pursuing nursing as
a profession.
Veteran staff members take
them on a tour of the local hos-
pital, demonstrating the emer
agency room, operating room,
CAT scan, and other tools of the
trade to the curious students.
They spent a day in the life
of a nurse, some of them us
ing the information to decide
whether they want to pursue a
career in nursing.
The students separated into
groups, and they seemed to
pay close and careful attention
as the nurses and other hospital
staff described the operation.
"Here's the liver. Here's the


spleen," David McClusky ex-
plained excitedly. "And here's
the kidneys."
The hospital has hosted the
event for several years now, ac-
cording to Susan Seeley, who
was one of the speakers that
day. Ms. Seeley said that the
market for nurses is facing a
drastic shortage.
"We have more baby boom-
ers getting sick," she said, "and
less people (to work) because
of the change in population.
There is a great need for nurs-
es."
The nursing profession is a

Almost 50 high school students from the area participated
in "A Day in the Life of a Nurse" program at Hendry Regional

20 years at Health Care District of Palm Beach County


HCD Marks Twenty
Year Milestone
West Palm Beach -This month
the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County marks its 20th an-
niversary, a milestone recognized
Wednesday by the District's Board
of Commissioners.
At its meeting last week, the
Board approved a proclamation
that celebrated the wide range of
services delivered since voters of
Palm Beach County approved a
ballot referendum on November
8, 1988 to establish a health care
district "to maximize the health
and well being of Palm Beach
County residents by providing
comprehensive planning, fund-
ing, and coordination of health
care service delivery."
"The Health Care District was
launched with a challenging mis-
sion," said Board Chair Jonathan
Satter.
"Many dedicated people in our
community deserve thanks and
credit for helping the Health Care
District grow and mature into the
comprehensive health care sys-
tem it is today."
Since 1992, the District's
Trauma System has saved nearly
40,000 lives.
Every year the District protects
the health of 1.3 million residents
by delivering over two million
health services for uninsured resi-
dents, enabling uninsured expect-
ant mothers to receive more than
200,000 services from doctors
and other health care providers,
staffing registered nurses to care
for nearly 170,000 students who
make 655,000 visits to the public
school clinics, providing vision
and hearing tests to nearly 60,000
students, and treating residents
who make nearly 19,000 visits to

Progress on the construction of a new regional hospital in Belle Glade continues at a steady pace. The lead agency on the
construction is the Health Care District of Palm Beach County, which is celebrating its 20th anniversary this month.


the Emergency Room at Glades
General Hospital.
"We are a unique health care
system with a primary focus of
prevention," said Dwight D. Chen-
ette, the District's Chief Executive
Officer.
"With the leadership of our
volunteer Board and the support
of our dedicated employees, we
have implemented programs that
satisfy several areas of critical
need. Most notable, especially
in light of the recent economic
downturn, is the growth of our
health coverage programs for the
uninsured and for working peo-


ple with limited incomes. These
health coverage initiatives, as well
as our trauma system and school
health services, have been recog-
nized as model programs for the
nation."
The Health Care District's pro-
grams include the nationally ac-
claimed Trauma System, school
health rooms with dedicated
nurses in more than 170 public
schools in Palm Beach County,
the Edward J. Healey Rehabilita-
tion and Nursing Center, several
health coverage programs for the
uninsured, and a Pharmacy op-
eration.

Tigers fall to Mulberry and exit playoffs


Season ends abruptly
for Clewiston Tiger
By Jeff Barwick

The Tigers season ended
abruptly as a fast and powerful
Panthers team scored early and
often in a Class 2A Regional Quar-
terfinals at Clewiston's Cane Field
on Friday night.
Mulberry used big as they
rolled up 301 yards rushing on the
night and a defense that stopped
the Tigers when they had to..
Mulberry (8-4) got their first
score when junior quarterback
Tony Brown kept the ball on an
option and raced 94 yards mid-
way through the opening quarter.
The run came after it appeared
the Tigers had the Panthers
pinned deep after a 58-yard punt
by Isandro Marquez, his longest
of the year.
The Tigers then used a 7-play
drive to get into position for
Isandro Marquez to nail a 36-yard
field goal.


The entire drive was tallied to
tailback Darris Hughes.
After a 15-yard kickoff return,
Hughes had 5 carries for 29
yards.
The Tigers were aided by 2
penalties against the Panther de-
fense.
But that was the only success
ful offensive effort for Clewiston
during the opening half.
On the following kickoff, Mul-
berry's Steven Willis busted loose
and streaked for a 70-yard touch-
down return.
Clewiston had a short drive
but had to punt and the Panthers
began at their own 26.
Wideout Jerrell Carr ran a re-
verse, checked up and threw a 39
yard completion to wideout Jus
tin Wagstaff at the Clewiston 35.
Mulberry kept churning out
short yardage runs but enough to
get 2 first downs, the last being at
the Tiger 10.
On third down from the 2,
fullback Trent Thomas fumbled
the ball into the end zone and


Tiger senior linebacker Leonard
Newton pounced on the ball for
a touchback.
Clewiston got a drive going but
lost the ball when quarterback
Isandro Marquez was attempting
to pass and was hit at the time
he released the ball causing it to
go backwards and be ruled a lat
eral that Mulberry recovered near
midfield.
From there, Jamar Reaves
scored on an inside reverse from
39 yards out just before intermis-
sion to post Mulberry to a 20-3
lead.
Clewiston (7-4) picked up two
touchdowns by senior tailback
Darris Hughes in the second half
on rushes of 10 and 13 yards.
But, it was too little, too late for
the Tigers.
Mulberry scored three touch-
downs of their own to keep
Clewiston and the game well un
der control.
Hughes rushed for 244 yards
and 36 carries but the Tigers just
could not muster any other offen


sive spark.
Marquez did complete 10
passes on 22 attempts but they
were of the short yardage variety
and only accounted for 64 yards.
"This was a very good team
that gave us looks we haven't
seen all year and it was hard to
get prepared for their offense,"
said Tiger.head coach Joe Roth.
He added, "Darris had a great
night and season. He's a special
kid who has grown so much this
year. He should get a good chance
to go on to the next level."
The Tiger defense played hard
but missed tackles and two blown
pass coverages allowed the Pan-
thers to break off some big plays.
LaMarcus Thicklin had 5 tackles
and 2 assists and defensive end
Adam Trevino had 5 tackles and
an assist.
Mulberry advanced in the
playoffs and now gets a return
engagement with district rival
Tampa Catholic, who beat them
in the regular season.
For the Tigers, the loss was dis


appointing as they took an early
exit from the playoffs.
But, at the start of the sea-
son most observers did not offer
much hope for a winning season
and Clewiston did finish 7-4 and
were a perfect 4-0 in winning
their District Championship.

Glades Central wins Class 3A playoff opener


Pahokee and Glades
Day punch tickets to
Class 2B, 1A regional
finals, respectively

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE No Leron 'L.J.'
Thomas, no Kentavious McCoy,
no problem.
Enter Alanda Shaw, who led
Glades Central to a 25-6 victory
over Miami-Belen Jesuit last Fri-
day night.
Shaw, who came into this
season as the Raiders third-string
quarterback, was 9-of-21 passing
for 121 yards with three touch-
downs and three interceptions.
The sophomore, who took
over at the helm for Thomas (col-
larbone injury), was aided by a
balanced offensive attack and the
offensive line, arguably among
the very best in the state this sea-
son.
In the opening quarter of the
Class 3A-4 regional quarterfinal
game, Shaw connected with fel-
low sophomore wideout Kevin
Benjamin (three catches, 50
yards) with an 11-yard touch-
down pass.
Later in the first half, the soph-
omore quarterback threw anoth-
er touchdown pass, a 6-yarder to
senior wideout Rantavious Woo-
ten (two catches, 18 yards).
Wooten, the four-star receiver,
according to Rivals.com, compet-
ed in this game just six days after
suffering from back spasms in the
Nov. 15 Muck Bowl game against
Pahokee.


Wooten's score put Glades
Central up 19-0 going into half-
time.
After Belen Jesuit cut the Raid-
ers lead to 19-6 in the third frame,
Shaw put the game away with
a 17-yard touchdown strike to
senior tight end/wideout James
West (two receptions, 32 yards).
Though the rushing attack
wasn't especially effective -the
Raiders were limited to 69 rush-
ing yards on 23 carries senior
tailback Antonio McCloude (12
carries, 65 yards) did register a
touchdown in the game.
McCloude's score came on a
18-yard run to open the contest.
In terms of total yardage, Bel-
en Jesuit held its own against the
Raiders defense as it mustered
184 total yards, only six less than
Glades Central (190).
But the Raiders defense, who
limited the Wolverines to only six
total first downs, came through
yet again when it mattered most.
The defensive back duo of
Cartavious Baldwin (2 INTs) and
Gregory Dent (1 INT) proved to
be the difference in the game for
Glades Central.
The Raiders (11-0) will travel
to Opa Locka tomorrow night to
face off against Miami-Monsignor
Pace in the Class 3A-4 regional
semifinal game.
Monsignor Pace defeated Fort
Lauderdale-Cardinal Gibbons, 35-
21, in their Class 3A playoff open-
er last week.
The Glades Central-Monsignor
Pace game is a rematch of last
year's regional semifinals, which
Glades Central won at home in an
8-6 comeback victory on a game-
winning field goal by Vincente


S"I would definitely use this hospital again."


Escebedo.
The winner of this game will
move on to the Class 3A-4 region-
al finals next week.
The opponent will be either
Dunbar or Class 3A defending
champion Naples, who ended
Glades Central's season last year
with a 27-24 win to take the Class
3A-4 regional title.

Pahokee 22, Park-
way Academy 8:
In the Blue Devils Class 2B
playoff opener, it was Vincent
Smith who propelled them to vic
tory.
The Michigan-bound run-
ning back (19 carries, 163 yards)
scored two of Pahokee's three
touchdowns in the game, includ-
ing an 80-yard run in the second
quarter.
Smith's score, followed by
a Nu'Keese Richardson 2-point
conversion run, put Pahokee up
15-8 going into halftime in their
home game.
No team scored again until
the fourth quarter, when Smith
punched in a touchdown run of
16 yards to conclude the game's
scoring.
Richardson, who connected
on a 5-yard touchdown pass to
Dexter Holmes, completed just
two passes on 12 attempts for 16
yards in this contest.
That being said, the Florida
commit did finish with 102 total
yards in the game (seven carries,
86 yards).
It just goes to show that there's
more than one way Richardson
could make his presence felt on

rush yards), the run defense was
picked apart yet again.
Indian Rocks had its way on
Glades Day's run defense, rush-
ing for 258 yards on 39 carries
with three touchdowns.
Glades Day (6-5) earned the
right to host Class 1A powerhouse
Fort Meade in tomorrow night's
Class 1A-3 regional champion
ship game.
It's a rematch of the Gators 23
21 Class 1A-3 finals victory over
the Miners, which was played in
Fort Meade last year.
Glades Day overcame Fort
Meade's potent rushing attack in


the classic battle, highlighted by
Schlecter's game-winning field
goal with less than two minutes
left in the game.
Cody Davis's game-ending in
perception sealed the win for the
Gators, which allowed more than
200 rushing yards to Fort Meade
last year.
Fort Meade, which defeated
Evangelical Christian 34-7 in their
Class 1A playoff opener last week,
is looking to end a two-game los-
ing streak to Glades Day.
Glades Day will need to tighten
up the holes in its run defense if
they expect to advance to their
third straight Class 1A state semi
final game next week.
The winner of this game will
face either Miami-Dade Christian
or Class 1A defending champion
American Heritage-Delray Beach
in the state semifinals.

You're the only one who ever
listened to me or asked my opin-

child in court and within the com-
munity-strongly supported by
program staff.

Scouting for Food Drive
A Cub Scout promises to "give good will" and to help other
people at all times. Clewiston Cub Scouts from Pack 667
did just that when they participated in the annual Scout-
ing For Food drive. Twenty boys and eleven adults spent
one day distributing door hangers in the community and
another day picking up non-perishable goods. "Scouting
for Food" shows cub scouts how to put words into action
and realize they can help make an impact on community
problems. The Cub Scouts collected approximately 370
pounds of non-perishable items. The scouts have earned
a patch and will record several hours of community ser-
vice through Good Turn for America. Clewiston Cub Scout
Pack 667 want to thank those in our community who par-
ticipated in "Scouting for Food." You are helping those in
need and are providing a positive reinforcement for our
scouts who are learning to help others.

Don't lose your
Homestead
The Honorable Kristina Kulpa,
Hendry County Property Apprais-
er wants everyone to remember
that if you relinquished your Flori-
da Homesteaded property in 2007
or 2008 and have already (or are
going to) pre-file for 2009 on your
new Florida homestead you may
be eligible for the new "portability
exemption".
If you qualify for portability it
will allow you to carry your cap
(Save Our Homes) with you to
your new Florida property.
If you are upsizing, meaning
the market value of your new
homestead property is greater
than your old homestead prop-
erty, you will be able to carry your
"Save Our Homes" benefit for-
ward up to $500,000.
If you are downsizing, mean-
ing the market value of the new
homestead property is less than
the old homestead property, you
will carry the SOH benefit forward
based on a percentage of old to
new homestead up to $500,000.
You can go to our website
www.hendrypa.org and down-
load the information for what you
need to bring with you to pre-file
for 2009 homestead plus an appli-
cation for portability. If you have
relinquished your Florida home-
steaded home in 2007 or 2008 but
have not yet purchased another
home you can also download a
"Request For Removal of Tax Ex-
emption".
If you have additional ques-
tions please call our office and my
staff will be able to assist you. In
Labelle call 863-675-5270 and in
Clewiston 863-983-3178.

File for 2009 Tax
Savings Early
Honorable Kristina Kulpa
would like all Hendry County
property owners to know that
the deadline for filing any 2009
Homestead Exemption, limited
income Senior Exemption or Ag-
ricultural Classification is March
2, 2009. Ms. Kulpa wants every-
one to be sure that they apply for
these benefits before the deadline
so her office is now accepting ap-
plications for early filing of your
2009 homestead and portability
benefits.
Avoid the rush in January and
February when Senior Exemption
(limited income) and the Agricul-
tural classification applications
will begin to be accepted.
You can go to our website
www.hendryprop.org and down-
load your application form. By
doing this you will be sure that

Pre-file now for 2009

Property Appraiser, would like
to remind you that you can pre
file for your 2009 tax exemptions
now. You do not have to wait un-
til January 2, 2009 to file. If you
file early you can avoid the rush,
the waiting in line and perhaps
even forgetting to file and missing
out on the exemption.
Both of our office locations
maintain the same hours 8:30
a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through
Friday. Please stop by during
those hours and put your filing
for tax exemptions behind you.

p.m. to 5 p.m.
SSaturday: 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

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 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
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

Sponsor a pet
People who love pets but can-
not adopt one for one reason or
another now have another way

With a simple click of a button,
a visitor can make a donation to a
pet's care. To see pets available to
sponsor, visit www.dogncat.pet-

unable to attend due to family obli-
gations and military service. After an
honorable discharge from the U.S.
Army, Johnie worked in the L.P Gas
Industry for Glades Gas in Clewiston.
The entrepreneurial spirit took hold
of Johnie and Jane and they pur-
chased Talquin Grocery West of Tal-
lahassee in 1974, later renaming it
Jackson's Talquin Grocery. After 30
years in business they retired in 1994
to spend more time with their
granddaughters.
Johnie was actively dedicated to
the Lake Talquin Baptist Church,
serving 11 years as a Deacon, includ-
ing Deacon Chairman, Construction
Committee Member, and Board of
Deacons. He was also an active
member of the Fort Braden Commu-
nity Center, Senior Group.
His love for Seminole Athletics was
surpassed only by his love for his
family and granddaughters. Johnie
will be remembered as a dear friend
to many and a Godly example to all,
your honesty and integrity will be
missed.
Johnie was preceded in death by
his adoptive parents, Oscar and Ola
Jackson. He was a loving husband,
father, grandfather and a dedicated
Florida State Football fan.
He is survived by his dedicated
wife of 54 years, Jane E. (Norris)
Jackson; three sons, John "Kevin"
(and wife Angie), of Daphne, Ala.,
William Jennings "Jen", of Tallahas-
see, and James Daniel "Jimbo" (and
wife Wendy), of Tallahassee; and
three loving granddaughters, "Ash
ley" Nicole Jackson, Veronica "Cait-
lin" Jackson, and Allison Danielle
"Allie" Jackson.
Funeral services were 2 p.m. Satur-
day, Nov. 22, 2008 at Lake Talquin
Baptist Church, with burial at Cul-
ley's Meadow Wood Cemetery at
700 Timberlane Road.
In lieu of flowers, contributions

The story of the Mayaimis Indian Nation


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The small river, fed by the pris-
tine waters of the lake, flowed
swiftly, cutting a winding, narrow
swath through the emerald, cus-
tard apple forest.
The narrow, watery path
emerged from the forest and me-
andered slowly through Carolina
willows, before starting its final
journey across the River of Grass.
A series of dirt mounds inter
rupted the river's approach to the
Everglades.
The probing river stalled un-
decidedly before it encircled the
earthen intruders and continued
its journey south into the Ever-
glades.
Shelters were nestled on top
of square mounds of sand and
muck and loomed above the river
and surrounding Everglades.
Dirt causeways coursed
through the eddying river waters,
interlinking all the mounds.
Mayaimis Indians moved lei-
surely along the causeways to
different mounds as they vis-
ited friends and performed daily
tasks.
This short story gives us a brief
glimpse into the lives of the Mayai-
mis Indians living along the rivers
and creeks that flowed in and out
of Lake Okeechobee.
Who were the Mayaimis Indi-
ans and how did Lake Okeecho-
bee and the surrounding areas


look when the Mayaimis Indians
lived on its shore?
It is time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and get the latest gossip on
our Mayaimis neighbors.
The Mayaimis Indian Na-
tion was part of the "Belle Glade
Culture,"(a term used to describe
the Indian culture around Lake
Okeechobee) and maybe the
Kissimmee River valley from ap-
proximately 1,000 BC to 1,700 or
1,800 AD.
It was a large territory that
included all or inland parts of;
Glades, Hendry, Palm Beach, and
Martin counties around the lake.
Other areas to the north in-
cluded Okeechobee, Highlands,
Osceola, and Polk counties.
Our old friend, Escanlante Fon-
tanedo, a Spanish Castaway and
slave of the Calusa Indians, tells
us some interesting tidbits about
our long forgotten neighbors, the
Miayami Indians; "Situated on the
bank of a river which extends into
the county the distance of fifth-
teen leagues, and issues from an-
other lake of fresh water, which is
said by some Indians who have
traversed it more than I, to be an
arm of Lake Mayaimi. On this
lake, which lies in the midst of the
country, are many towns, of thirty
or forty inhibitants each; and as
many more places there are in
which people are not so number
ous."
The river that Fontanedo was
referring to is the Miami River.


The Eastern Coastal Ridge and
the Immokalee Ridge formed a
basin that once directed part of
the Lake Okeechobee sheet flow
through the Everglades into the
Miami River that once flowed nat-
urally out to Key Biscayne.
It should be noted that the City
of Miami and the Miami River
were named after the Mayaimis
Indians and not the Miamis Indi-
ans living in Ohio.
Lake Mayaimis means Big Wa-
ter.
The name Mayaimis was also
used to describe the Indians living
on Big Water, a lake we know to-
day as Lake Okeechobee.
The Mayaimis Indian towns
were located along the lake's
shoreline and waterways that
flowed in and out of the lake.
Yesterday's Lake Okeecho-
bee had a much wider shoreline,
larger flood zone and many wa
terways that have since been de
stroyed.
Mounds found around Lake
Okeechobee today seem lost and
out of place in a geographical
patchwork of agriculture and ur-
ban development.
Old Timers recorded some
of the old lake boundaries; Peli-
can Lake, a large bay that started
roughly around Beacon Point and
ran northeast toward Canal Point.
The bay split Pahokee from
the mainland, forming Pahokee
into a small peninsula that jutted
out in the lake.


Hunting accident Birth


claims teenager


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officers are investigating what
appears to be a hunting accident,
which claimed the life of a Bro-
ward County teenager. Seth D.
Edge, 15, of West Park, died from
a single gunshot wound to the
head shortly before 7 a.m. Satur-
day.
The victim was duck hunt-
ing with his father and brothers
on Lake Okeechobee in Glades
County when his 13-year-old
brother attempted to set his gun
down. Witnesses said the gun fell
and discharged, fatally injuring
Seth, who was pronounced dead
at the scene. No charges have
been filed.
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office was among the first re-
sponders and assisted in the in-
vestigation.


In Florida, children 15 years
and younger may hunt without
a hunting license, as long as they
are supervised by an adult. Chil-
dren under 16 may hunt with a
gun lawfully but must be under
adult supervision at all times.
The FWC regularly schedules
hunting safety classes in all Flor-
ida counties.
"We encourage all hunt-
ers, especially children to take
the course," said FWC regional
hunter safety administrator Lynne
Hawk. "The course is free and
satisfies the hunter education re-
quirements of all other states and
Canadian provinces that require
hunter safety certification."
Everyone born on or after
June 1, 1975, must pass an ap-
proved hunter safety course to
be eligible to purchase a Florida
hunting license.

Reyna

Birth
Odessa and
David Reyna of
Clewiston, are
proud to an-
nounce the birth
of their daughter
Davianna Mia.
Ms. Davianna
Mia was born on
Nov. 12, 2008 at
8:35 a.m.
She weighed 9
pounds 1 ounces
and was 20.5 inch-
es long at birth.


Further south, the lake waters
once extended out to Dead Man's
Curve on Highway 715, where
commercial fishermen once har-
vested catfish in the early 1900s.
The land area north of South
Bay is still called Lake Bottom.
It was once a great bay teem-
ing with ducks and fish.
The lake once extended be-
yond the Clewiston sugar mill
during the wet season.
The geographical change in
the early 1,900s makes it difficult
to envision the old lake boundary
ies as they were in the days of the
Miayami Indians.
Laurence E. Will, the great
Glades historian, wrote about the
drought on Lake Okeechobee in
the early 1900s.
He said the settlers walked
across the southern sections of
the lake that were once under
water and discovered hundreds
of Indian skeletons.
It was a mystery to Lawerance
Will, who speculated that a great
battle could have been fought,
resulting in the death of so many
Indians.
Geologist and Anthropologist
may have a better answer.
Some believe that the lake's
south shore could have ended
where Rocky Reef lies today.
Rocky Reef is a limestone ridge
running east and west across the
lake.
It protrudes several feet above
the water when the lake is low


and extends from Pahokee to
Lakeport.
Most of the islands in Lake
Okeechobee are south of Rocky
Reef, indicating that all land south
of Rocky Reef may have been
higher once upon a time.
Archeologist have found
enough artifacts on the lakes bot-
tom to support the fact that Indi-
ans once lived high and dry in ar-
eas that are now inundated with
lake water.
Hurricanes and flooding were
probably the key factors that ex-
tended the lake's shoreline south
of Rocky Reef.
Hurricanes no doubt played a
role in the destruction of the buri-
al mounds.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian towns
and their locations in next week's
edition of "A Walk in The Past."
I hope you enjoyed this story.

Museum if you have questions,
artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale

The Lawrence Group, a Nashville-based investment firm with agricultural holdings throughout the country, is making a bid
to purchase U.S. Sugar outright. It is offering stockholders $300 per share, as opposed to the $365 per share that they may
make under the terms of the sale to the state.


Sugar
Continued From Page 1
Todd Templin, a spokesman
for the Lawrence Group, said that
a formal proposal is being pre-
pared.
The Lawrence Group is no
stranger to U.S. Sugar.
The group is at the center of
a lawsuit against the sugar com-
pany. After making buyout offers
in 2005 and then later in 2007
for $293 a share, the Lawrence
Group was rebuffed, the lawsuit
claims, without the knowledge of
the employee stockholders.
The employee stockholders
filed the complaint.
The suit alleges that these
stockholders were in the dark

rands and pay bills. With it being
cheaper, I'll definitely be getting
more gas and I won't have to
wait," Garrett said.
Woody Lamb, a businessman
from Lakeland, was surprised
at the gas price when he passed
through Clewiston.
"My gage was almost on emp-
ty. I saw this place and said, 'This
is it, I'm stopping'," said Lamb.
Lamb travels 1,200 miles a
week on business trips and has
felt the pinch at the pump.
"I have places to go and I can't
let gas prices get in the way of my
business, but it is definitely nice to
see it back down," Lamb said.
Diaz, who changed the gas sta-
tion's prices on Thursday night,

when the company was buying

mately $100 less a share.
The suit claims that U.S. Sug-

in hush money after initially be-

the Mott family, which maintains
control of the company through a
foundation, wished to keep con-
trol of the company.


this much business since mid-
September when many residents
feared Hurricane Ike was heading
towards Florida.
"This is how busy we were
when everyone thought that the
hurricane was coming here and
started filling up. Hopefully, it will
keep coming down" said Diaz.
With a sluggish economy and
the unemployment rate in Florida
at 6.6 percent, lower gas prices
have provided some relief. The
lower prices could also persuade
more drivers to travel during the
upcoming holiday season.
The American Automobile As-
sociation (AAA) projects 2.4 mil-
lion Floridians on the road during
the Thanksgiving holiday.
Uncertainty in the world's fi-
nancial markets, as well as mo-
torists tightening their belts during
traditionally peak travel seasons,
have resulted in the steep decline
in gas prices.

Perhaps recalling that event,
the Lawrence Group has taken its
offer directly to stockholders in a
bid for transparency.
Meanwhile, the deal already
has local backers.
Melanie McGahee, an attorney
in Hendry County, calls the Law-
rence offer the most reasoned yet
for the purchase of the company.
"It looks to me like the Law-

Ms. McGahee, who believes that

She remains hopeful that the
Lawrence Group would work

She admits to being "trauma-
tized" at hearing that U.S. Sugar
had agreed to sell to the state ear-
lier this year.
"My opinion is that the govern-
ment owning any assets is a bad
thing," she said. "The state is like
a drug addict and the land is like
cocaine. Once they take it, they're
never gonna give it back."

dent shadowing nurses at Hendry
Regional.
Ms. Combass remembers
walking down the various sec-
tions of the hospital, and seeing
how well nurses seemed to inter-
act with their patients.
That is what nursing's all
about, she said: the one-on-one
care of patients.
"I love it. You get to know your
patient," she said. "I grew up here
and it's a chance to take care of
my community," the young wom-

This Thanksgiving, don't be a turkey


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I've been told that the com-
mercially grown turkey is one of
nature's less intelligent creatures.
In the article I read, the do-
mesticated turkey was described
as being "as brainless as a base-
ball."
Even drinking can put a strain
on turkey intelligence. If a turkey
is outdoors, looking up at the
sky when it starts to rain, it can
drown.
They're often not smart enough
to close their mouths in the rain.
Being called a turkey takes on a
whole new connotation!
But at least the turkey has an
excuse for being "bird-brained."
It has a bird's brain!
There is less excuse for human
beings.
Take the nine lepers Luke
writes about in Luke 17.
Jesus had given them a tre
mendous gift.


Jesus had healed them from a
disgusting, painful, and unsightly
skin disease.
Even more, Jesus had made it
possible for them to re-enter so-
ciety and reunite with their fami-
lies.
Ten lepers were healed. But
only one leper, and a Samari
tan at that, came back and said,
"Thanks."
What turkeys! Ten received
God's blessing, but only one
stopped to say thanks.
What about us?
Thanksgiving Day is here. In
which group will you be found?
Amongst the nine who forgot
or with the one who came back
to thank God?
No one wants to be a turkey. If
we want to avoid being "turkeys"
this Thanksgiving, the behavior
of that tenth leper might prove
instructive.
A first step in thanks-giving is
perceiving, seeing the ways we've
been blessed.


God has given different crea-
tures different ways of seeing.
I read that a hawk, perched on
top of the Empire State building,
could locate a dime on the side-
walk below.
I don't know why a hawk
would care about a dime located
on the sidewalk below the Empire
State Building, but if a dime were
there, the hawk could spot it.
A bee has a different kind of
vision. Its eyes have 15,000 facets
that enable it to see the sun as a
single dot and to navigate long
distances with the sun as a refer-
ence.
A kingfisher has two kinds of
vision: one for spotting fish as it
flies overhead and another for
seeing fish underwater.
There are different ways of
seeing, and we may need to see
things in different ways if we are
to experience the full measure of
our blessings.
Can we thank God this Thanks-
giving not only for the good things


that happened, but also for the
bad things that didn't happen?
The problems and disasters
we worried about which did not
come about?
Can we look in a different way
and see some sort of blessing
even in the problems that we do
face?
George Matheson, a Scot
tish preacher, once shared, "I've
thanked God a thousand times for
my 'roses.' Now I've got to learn
to thank God for my 'thorns.' "
Matheson happened to be
blind -which is a pretty signifi-
cant "thorn."
Maybe, if we think about it a
bit, we, too, can find different
ways of seeing our blessings.
And we are not meant to keep
all of these blessings to ourselves.
"Thanks," is only half of the word
"Thanksgiving."
"Giving" is the other half.
We are all very fortunate to
have something to give.
In the West Virginia hills they


Whose shall those things be?


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
We are tempted to think that
the things we have toiled for and
given our energies to are ours!
We are only stewards of what
we possess and if we are not
careful we will be possessed by
our possessions!
We must be sure we possess
our possessions (Obadiah 17).
One way to make sure our
possessions do not possess us
is to remember "the earth is the
Lord's and the fullness thereof" (I
Cor. 10:26).
Scriptural giving is one way
of possessing our possessions
instead of being possessed by
them.
Often I've heard "do your giv-
ing while your living and you'll
know where it's going!"
Let's look at some rewards of
giving:
Giving to a cause greater
than we are extends our work.


Giving increases our sense of
involvement.
Giving is an opportunity to
participate in a good work.
Giving fills a need of tran
scending our own realm.
Giving increases our gener
osity.
Giving brings its own reward
of good measure, pressed down,
and overflowing into our bosoms.
(Lk. 6:38)
A generous attitude makes
for a happy spirit (2 Cor. 9:7).
The question, "Then whose
shall those things be" (Luke
12:20) was asked relative to pos-
sessions left at death.
In a very real sense we are re
sponsible as to who will then re
ceive our goods.
Solomon wrote of leaving the
fruit of our labor to others who
may or may not be wise in the use
of it (Eccl. 2:18-10).
The Psalmist said "man heaps
up and knows not who will gath-
er" (Psalm 39:6).
An unappreciative or unwise


heir may carelessly squander
wealth which may have been ac-
cumulated by hard work, simple
living and self denial.
There are some things we
should consider relative to our
possessions now which will af-
fect them after we are gone:
*Be generous now.
By giving while we live we can
have the joy of seeing the fruits of
our giving.
*Choose your heirs carefully.
Dumping riches into one's lap
may cause him to live foolishly.
We should consider the con-
sequences of the wealth on our
heirs.
*Be a faithful steward.
A steward is one who has the
goods of another entrusted to him
for use for the rightful owner.
A worthy steward makes good
use of his possessions while he
lives.
A good steward also makes
provision for the proper use of his
goods after he is gone.
When death comes we leave


our earthly possessions, all of
them!
We can leave them in such a
way as to be a blessing to man
and the glory of God.
"Moreover it is required in
stewards that a man be found
faithful" (I Cor. 4:2).
It is an appropriate question
"Then whose shall those things
be, which thou hast provided"
(Luke 12:20). Remember, you
can't take it with you (I Timothy
6:7), but you can send it on ahead
(I Timothy 6:17-19).
It is a fact that you can use
your substance during your life
and you may will it to some wor-
thy cause where it will do good
long after you are gone.
Bequest should have a spiri-
tual intent with an eternal value.
"Whose shall these things be", is
up to you!


More than a nice gesture or being polite


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are many times when
I've been with people after an or
deal; an operation, the return of
a loved one who was in danger,
the escape from a threatening
situation, the passing through
a hostile territory. The call is to
give thanks. Noah stops to build
an altar (Genesis 8:20) when the
ark escapes the flood waters and
is brought safely back to dry land.
Nehemiah finds the city of Jeru-
salem in ruins and rebuilds, then
gives thanks to God for a restora-
tion (ch 12:40) and worships. In
spite of the decree of King Darius,
Daniel continues to give thanks
to his God (6:110) even though it
would lead to defiance and finally
the lion's den.

First Christian plans
a busy Christmas
Season
First Christian Church has
made plans for a busy Christmas
Season.
The first three Wednesday
Nights at 7 p.m. the church will
be studying Rick Warren's "The
Purpose of Christmas."


Our Pilgrim forefathers stopped
to worship once the hardships of
a transatlantic voyage was over
and they had arrived at a new and
promised land. All of these stories
did not bring an end to more chal-
lenges or more difficulties; Noah's
descendants would know slavery
and persecution, Nehemian's city
would be again the site of many
battles, our ancestors did not step
into a land of comfort and peace.
Yet at each moment, there came
a time to give thanks even when
things were difficult or problems
remained.
Gratitude toward God for be-
ing with us during dare hours,
not leaving us without hope, not
leaving us comfortless; that's cap-
turing a bigger picture of our lives
and God's place in them.
Human beings are their most
human when they appreciate all


Each Sunday those who attend
will receive a Christmas Memento
of their attendance.
On Dec. 21 at 11 a.m. the
Church Choir will be present
ing the Cantata, "JOY TO THE
WORLD," under the direction of
Jackie Miller, Minister.
Soloist include Deanna Walker
and Heather Giddens. On that
same day at 7 p.m. the Christ-
mas Program, "JOY FOR THE
WORLD," will be presented un-
der the direction of Heather Gid
dens.
Christmas Treat Bags will be
given out after this service. On
Dec. 24, 7 p.m., Christmas Eve, a
Christmas Candlelight Carol Ser-
vice will be held.
Jackie Miller, Minister of First
Christian, cordially invites the
community to attend any or all of
these Special Services.

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 information please
call 863-983-5269.

Service Times
The Clewiston Church of
Christ would like to announce
their regular service times to the
public and invite anyone interest-


that they have been given and
their recognition of the source of
all of our gifts is at the root of wor-
ship. A great writer has said that
our recognition that "we didn't
get through this all on our own"
or "we didn't create the world
and life without help" is when
we begin to see God at work and
when we realize that we have re-
ceived so many and wonderful
blessings.
Worship is our praising God for
what He has done for us and for
all of humanity; and our response
and wanting to do something in
return. In comparison to what
God has done, it is precious little.
That's all right, though, the Lord
has told us to go ahead and do it.
When He comes to face a dark-
est earthly hour, He stops with His
disciples and gives thanks over the
things they will share and ordains


ed in attending.
Sunday Bible Class will begin
at 10 a.m., Sunday Worship be-
gins at 11 a.m., Sunday Evening
Worship will start at 6 p.m. and
Wednesday Bible Study starts at
7 p.m.
The Clewiston Church of
Christ is located at 336 Central
Ave in Clewiston.
For further information please
call 863 983 8822.

Christmas Dinner for
Seniors
All seniors are invited to a com-
munity wide Christmas dinner on
Saturday, Dec. 13 starting at 12
p.m. at John Boy auditorium.
Gifts and door prizes will be
given out!
This event is sponsored as a
no charge gift to the seniors of
our community by our area busi
nesses and churches.
Make your reservations with
your local church or call 863-983
5269.

Rummage, Bake Sale
The youth of Calvary Baptist
Church are having a Rummage/
bake sale every Saturday morning
from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.
The churchur is located at 1075
Davidson Rd. Hookers Point.
We are raising funds for a
youth seminar in January. Dona-
tions accepted.

Ladies Outreach
Evangel Church Ladies' Out-
reach Ministry will be hosting a
country breakfast and bake sale


that we will give thanks ever after
in our worship, fellowship, com
mon meal offerings. Thanksgiving
is seeing the big picture; realizing
what we have been given, real-
izing what God has done for us,
realizing that we were not alone
during the darkest of hours. It is
the inner cal to say something to
God, no matter how inadequate,
that we are aware of His presence
and His gifts. It is taking time out
to return what it is that we have
to return, not much in compari-
son to what God has done, but
enough because He asks it of
us. In reality, God doesn't ask a
lot, after all, there's not much we
could give when you think about
it. Just being thankful, that's all.
That much I can do; that much I
should do. Come Thanksgiving,
that much I will do!


on Saturday, Dec. 6 from 8 a.m. to
11 a.m. at the Outreach Center on
350 South Berner Road.
The country breakfast is all you
can eat with a suggested dona
tion of $6 and $2.50 for children
under 6.


have a custom of setting an extra
place setting and an extra chair at
the Thanksgiving table.
It's a reminder that there will
always be people in need -and
we need to make room in our
hearts and in our giving for peo-
ple in need.
We can make generous giving
a part of our thanks-giving.
Remember, every time we
feed the hungry, give drink to the
thirsty, clothe the naked, visit the
sick or the prisoner, it's the same
thing as doing it for Jesus (Mat
thew 25:31).
The tenth leper may not have


had much, but in his gratitude he
shared what he had to give.
This Thanksgiving, don't be a
turkey.
In English, the word "think"
and the word "thank" both come
from the same root.
Nine out of ten forgot to think
and forgot to thank God for their
blessings.
But the tenth leper saw his
blessings, gave thanks for his
blessings, and shared his bless
ings.
So can we.

Lost files? Search your hard drive


By Diane Timmons
My purpose in writing this col-
umn was to try to limit the aggra-
vation seniors can feel when they
are working on their computers.
Because we didn't grow up with
computers, sometimes we are at
a loss to solve a problem that we
know must have a simple solu-
tion. It's so easy to lose a file on
the computer. I've done it and I'm
sure you have too. It especially
seems to happen when saving
a file sent via email or if you are
downloading a file from an inter-
net site.
The great thing about Win-
dows, is that a search function has
been built into the operating sys-
tem. It is simple to use with just a
few tips. To clarify, the search I'm
talking about isn't on the Internet
or Google. You find it from your
computer desktop.
If you have no idea where
a file is, you probably want to


search your entire hard drive. This
will search all those temp folders
where some email attachments
like to save.
1. Click Start and drag your
mouse to select Search and then
click For Files and Folders. This
brings up a search panel. Again
click All Files and Folders. In the
top box, type the file name or part
of it. It will search for just those
letters in the names of the files. Or
you can use the center box for a
word or phrase in the body of the
file. The third box down shows
where you will be searching. No-
tice you can choose a different
folder.
2. You can also search just
by date. If you know what day
you created the file, you can sim-
ply search by the day's date.
3. Now click Search.
4. The result will appear
to the right in a list. This list can
be quite long. A scroll to the right


may give you some information
that will narrow down the file you
are looking for. Pay special atten-
tion to the "In Folder" column
which tells you where your file
is located. It may show a lot of
nested folders. Sometimes I open
up a My Computer window along
side the search results and make
sure I can find the file before I
close the search pane.
5. When you locate your
lost file, either in the search re-
sults list or in a folder, double click
to open the file. An hourglass will
appear while your computer lo-
cates the application that created
that file. The file will open.
My Computer provides a sim-
pier view of the folders on your
computer. Use My Computer if
you want to search for a file in a
specific folder. For example, open
My Computer and look to the
left to open My Documents. My
Documents is the default save lo


cation for many of your files and
can get quite large with lots of
files. Here is how to search within
a file folder.
After you have opened
the folder within which
you want to search, do
one of the following to
bring up the search panel
discussed above:
-Click the magnifying glass
at the top of the folder.
-Press Ctrl and then the
"e" key to bring up the
search panel.
-Or, click the menu item
View, then Explorer Bar,
and then Search.
The Search function on your
computer can help you find files
and pictures you think you have
lost. Practice it and happy com-
puting!

quisition of considerable scope.

Board workshop is scheduled for

Don't let the flu spoil your holidays


By Brenda Barnes
It's not too late!
You can still get your flu shot.
Dec. 8 to Dec. 14 is recognized
as National Influenza Vaccination
Week.
If you get the flu, it can cause
you misery for over a week! It can
make you miss work, school, and
activities you enjoy.
Get vaccinated for a healthier
winter. Many providers in the area
offer the flu shot at a reasonable
rate.
The money you spend get-
ting the flu shot will out weigh
the costs of lost time from work
should you get the flu.
The top three reasons you


should get your flu shot: die from the flu than from any
1. Protects Other People Get- other vaccine-preventable dis-


ting a flu shot not only protects
you from getting the flu, but you
are also protecting your family
and friends or anyone that you
may come in contact with.
2. Prevent Severe Illness Over
200,000 people are hospitalized
every year from flu related com-
plications. Kids under 2 years of
age and adults over 65 years of
age are more likely to be hospital-
ized from the effects of the flu.
3. Prevent Flu-Related Deaths
-Each year, over 36,000 people
in the US die because of the flu.
Most of these deaths are people
aged 65 and older. More people


ease.
Remember to wash your
hands often.
Try not to touch your eyes,
nose and mouth until you've
washed your hands thoroughly.
Cover your nose and mouth
with a tissue when you cough or
sneeze.
Discard the tissue in the trash
and wash your hands immedi-
ately afterwards.
If you do get the flu, stay home,
get plenty of rest, drink plenty of
liquids and avoid alcohol and to-
bacco use.
Talk to your doctor about rec-


commendations for getting a flu
shot.
Remember that it takes up to
two weeks to provide protection
after you get the shot.
Protect Yourself. Protect your
family and friends. Get Vaccinat-
ed!
Remember, be healthy and be
happy!
