Santa Claus: What every kid wants to know
SOwl


State goes



forward with



purchase


Save for a caveat,
district asks for
little changes
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
An oftentimes contentious
final meeting for the review of a
contract to purchase U.S. Sugar
carried over a day while pro-
ponents and opponents made
their arguments.
A heated final few hours
seemed to test the patience of
even the most seasoned South
Florida Water Management
District board members on
Tuesday in West Palm Beach,
who could be seen agitatedly
rubbing their faces, or grab-
bing their hair during some of
the thicker moments of that
meeting.
In the end, the board nar-
rowly voted to approve the
contract to purchase 180,000

Just one week before Christmas, Santa takes time from his busy schedule to answer a
few questions from local elementary school students.


Second graders grill Santa


Clewiston children
ask their most
pressing questions
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
It is a little known fact that
Santa Claus takes seasonal va-
cations to Clewiston following
the Christmas holiday. We here
at The Clewiston News took ad-
vantage of this special circum-
stance to have Santa answer a
few questions for us; questions
submitted by local second
graders. The always gracious
Christmas mascot -- who has
a passing resemblance to Lou
Bertoni, of City Electric Supply,
although the two have never
met -- obliged.
Q: Are you real, Santa
Claus?
-- Emmanuel Valdez, West-
side Elementary
A: Yes, Santa Claus is very,
very real. Even if you stay up
at night, you won't see me,
because I am so fast. If you
blink, I'll be in and out before
you know it. I exist all over the


world in all of the children and
the parents' hearts.
Q: Can I be an elf?
-- Trent Brown, Eastside El-
ementary
A: No, elves are special little
people and you're gonna grow
up to be too big.
Q: How do you put your fin-
ger on your nose and go up the
chimney?
-- Maritza Valadez, Central
Elementary
A: I just place my right index
finger to the right side of my
nose. I nod my head and when
I nod my head, that puts me in
a spirit form and I rise up the
chimney.
Q: How do you get the ma-
chines to work when there's
no electric poles in the North
Pole?
-- Anthony Pugh, Westside
Elementary
A: Most of the machines are
foot pedal-cranked. The elves,
they use the conveyor belts to
move the wheels and the gears
and that's how they work.


Q: What would you like for
Christmas?
-- Tajanay Gray, Eastside El-
ementary
A: I would like not to have
a naughty list. I would like to
have just good lists. I guess I
would also like a new sleigh.
Q: How can you give all
those toys in one night before
Christmas Day?
-- Dania Toledo, Central El-
ementary
A: Because of the time
zones. As we travel through
different time zones, we pick
up hours and days. When we
cross the international day line,
we pick up another day. That's
how we can do it.
Q: Why do you wear red all
the time, do you like any other
colors?
-- Terrica Hughes, Westside
Elementary
A: Yes, I do like other colors,
sometimes I'm in green, with
the red trim. The red is more
visible for when I'm flying.

of U.S. Sugar's land, almost all
of that company's land used
in production. It is one of the
largest purchases of land in the
state's 163 year history.
A provision allows the dis-
trict to back out of the deal if
obstructs their goal of water
management, or if it carries the
potential of wiping out the dis-
trict's budget.
The 4-to-3 vote is the end of
a months-long back-and-forth
between the state and U.S.
Sugar in delineating the terms
of the contract. In essence, it
called for the sale of the land
for $1.34 billion, and the lease
of the land to U.S. Sugar at $50
an acre for the next seven years
-- a figure that was scrutinized
by other farming operations.
While a letter from Governor
Charlie Crist acknowledged the
detriment that the loss of such
a large employer could create,
and promised to urge along

Teen charged



with bringing



knife to school


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Clewiston
High School officials reportedly
acted quickly to defuse what
could have been a danger-
ous, and deadly, conflict at the
school.
Deputies retrieved a steak
knife with an eight-inch blade
from one of their students and
confronted her about a rumor
that she had planned to use it
in a fight.
Hendry County Sheriff's
deputies were called to the
school on Dec. 9, where they
arrested 16-year-old Rankeria
1. Phillips on charges of pos-
session of a weapon on school
property.
A number of students came
forward to notify Gary Busin,
vice principal, that the girl
had planned to fight another
schoolmate and stab her.
It is not certain when the
fight was to occur, but deputies


were at the scene shortly after
9 a.m.
When he heard this, the ad-
ministrator called the suspect
and the alleged victim to the
office. He secured the victim in
an office, while he talked to the
suspect.
Searching inside her back-
pack, Mr. Busin recovered a
steak knife
When he asked if the knife
was for protection, the re-
sponse was reportedly, "Damn
right, you see how big she is."
The girl was placed under
arrest. Deputies transported her
to the Hendry County Deten-
tion Center for processing, and
the Juvenile Assessment Center
was notified of the arrest.
A juvenile intake officer,
after reviewing the report, ad-
vised the release of the girl to
her parents.

County: Delay USSC contract


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Hendry County commis-
sions vented their agitation
with Gov. Crist and what they
perceive to be his lack of fol-
low-through in not coming up
with an economic plan to help
the area transition through the
loss of its largest employer.
At their Dec. 9 meeting in
LaBelle, Hendry County com-
missioners voted to contribute
$10,000 to an effort to delay the
contract vote.
In making the motion, Com-
missioner Kevin McCarthy said
he did not believe SFWMD
would sell any of the USSC land


it buys back to farming interests
and decried the Governor's ap-
parent lack of concern for Hen-
dry County's sagging employ-
ment picture a picture that
stands to become even more
critical with the sale. He said
the sale will have the largest im-
pact on the county of anything
on the next 20 years.

Impact fees
The commissioners voted to
extend its suspension of impact
fees though the end of Febru-
ary.
The board originally sus-
pended the fees, designed to
make development pay for it-


self, last January in response to
the serious decline in building
during this economic down-
turn.
Commissioner McCarthy
also said the board should get
input from both LaBelle and
Clewiston as well as the school
board in deciding how to pro-
ceed.

Sheriff said goodbye
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said fare-
well to the board, saying he
would be leaving the Sheriff's
Office in good shape. Upset
with "rumors" regarding his

COLD TURKEY: I think that it is very sad that a company the size of a
local mill, cannot find it in their heart to stop their operations for one day
(Christmas) to allow their employees to spend the most important day of
the year with their families. The company has sent out letters, bragging
on how well the crop went this year and thanking the employees for
their success, yet can't afford to shut down for one day out of the year.
The employees work very hard all year for the success of the company
and this is the appreciation they receive. "Here is a turkey and by the way,
you can't spend Christmas with your family because you will be stuck
out here?" Imagine how sad it would be, not to be able to see the smile
and joy of your children waking up to Santa, all because the company
that cares so much for their community is too greedy to let them have
this one day off. But hey, at least they give you a TURKEY, that you can
eat, (cold) when you finally get home!
TIME TO LOOK FOR ANOTHER JOB: I know how you feel but if
your not happy with your employer's work schedule, find another job.
I don't think they will have a problem with finding a replacement for
anyone. The days of employer loyalty to their employee's is a thing of
the past, they're in business to make money and if it means working
on Christmas then so be it. Either climb up the ladder to where you get
the day off or suck it up and work.
SHOULD EVERYONE HAVE THE DAY OFF: Working in the sug-
ar mill is basically "seasonal work." I do think most people going to
work there understand this going in. You work when the work is there.
Sorry, I know this is not what you want to hear. So, do you think every-
one should have the day off? Would we send home all the folks in the
nursing home and the hospital? What about the people that work to
keep the power on in your home, should they go home? But don't call
to complain you have no lights, because all the telephone operators,
they are going home too. Now I do think the workers should have
some time off for the holiday to spend with family and friends, but
sorry the thought of closing the mill down totally ... is just not practi-
cal, and it has nothing to do with greed at all.
APPLES TO ORANGES: You cannot compare essential services
with a sugar plant. Good grief. A small crew can keep the fires lit and
the lights on for one day. It has everything to do with money.


Letter to the Editor


Senior Christmas
Dinner
Dear Editor
I was blessed to be a part of
the Community Senior Christmas
Dinner held at the John Boy Au-
ditorium on Saturday, December
13,2008. 1 don't knowwhat the fi-
nal count was, but I do know that
all of the 175 dinner plates were
used by the attendees and help.
Words are not adequate to
express the warm feelings in my
heart at the generous response
from the businesses, churches,
the city of Clewiston, and others


who gave to help support and
make this special dinner honor-
ing our seniors happen. It's great
to be a part of such a caring com-
munity!
A special thanks to Commis-
sioner Janet Taylor for helping to
organize it, the many volunteers
who gave feet to the generous
gifts and support we received,
and to the volunteers from the
Clewiston Christian School who
gave lots of enthusiastic service to
our honored guests.
John Hicks
Pastor, First United Methodist
Church

Wrestling all the





way to the summit


Clewiston and Glades
Central look to make
impact in Class 1A
this season

By Naji Tobias
IN[ Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION The
area's two wrestling teams will
try to scramble its way to the top
of Class 1A this season.
Clewiston and Glades Central,
both of which met in last year's
Clewiston Invitational, aim to win
their respective districts.
Both teams finished third in
their respective district tourna-
ments last season, with Clewiston
being edged out by South Fort
Myers (District 12-1A champions)
and Naples (District 12-1A runner-
up)-
District 12-1A includes teams
such as LaBelle, Estero, Immoka-
lee and Golden Gate.
Glades Central, meanwhile,
was defeated by Jupiter Chris-
tian (District 13-1A champions)
and Jensen Beach (District 13-1A
runner-up).
District 13-1A, which also in-
cludes Benjamin, Cardinal New-
man and Suncoast.
For both teams to maximize
their potential, they know that
competing hard in each meet is
an absolute must.
Clewiston and Glades Central
feature a host of standout wres-
tlers, including Joey Cordova
(Clewiston), Damarian Allen
(Clewiston) and Wilky Exantus
(Glades Central), to name just a
few.
Cordova and Allen, both se-
niors, were named co-MVPs at
this past May's Clewiston Winter/
Spring sports banquet.
Both standouts, which quali-
fied for the Class IA state tour-
nament in Lakeland last season,
seek to become state champions
in their respective weight classes
come February.
Cordova (152 lb. weight class)
and Allen (171 lb. weight class),
both currently undefeated head-
ing into Saturday's Clewiston In-
vitational, are ranked No. 7 in the
state in their weight classes.
David Gay, Clewiston's sec-
ond year head coach, believes
that other wrestlers such as Alex
Bentancor (125 lb. class), Andy
Cordova (130 lb. class), Damian
Smith (160 lb. class) and
Fourth-ranked Adam Trevino
(215 lb. class), could emerge in
the state tournament as well.
Trevino was another standout
wrestler who qualified for the
state tournament last season.
"It's gonna be a hard road, but
I think they'll qualify," Gay said.
Exantus, who was the runner-
up in last season's Palm Beach
County wrestling meet, is now
considered Glades Central's vet-
eran leader.
Looking to make his first ap-
pearance in the Class 1A state
tournament, Exantus will try to
take himself and his Glades Cen-
tral team over the top this sea-
son.
The Raiders will have three re-
turning wrestlers, including Law-
ton Petitefree (189 lb. class) and
Eli Blye (Heavyweight class).
The rest of the team are
newcomers, according to Marc
Schultz, the sixth-year head
coach.
"We have quite a few who are
new to the sport," Schultz said.
"They are working hard in
practice and learning quick," he
continued
"We should be strong and
peak at the right time when play-
offs begin."

Clewiston Tigers
Head Coach: David Gay (sec-
ond season)
Assistants: Tiffany Gay, Jess
Alford (previous head coach)
Managers: Josie Boykin,
Zondra Crawford, Ashliegh Rice
and Shawnee Lester
Team Roster:
103 lbs. Chris Price
(Soph.)
112 lbs. Marc Acevedo
(Fr.), Denlindo Watson

119 lbs. Ruben Cornejo

cum (Jr.)

Clewiston has already partici-
pated in three meets this season,
including a Nov. 22 date at the
Golden Gate Invitational, a Dec.
6 competition at the Park Vista
Invitational and a Dec. 13 date at
Okeechobee.
In the Nov. 22 meet at Golden
Gate, Bentancor and Andy Cor-
dova placed first, while Baucum
and Soriano placed second and
fourth, respectively.
At the Park Vista meet, Clewis-
ton finished third as a team,
behind Western High and Park
Vista.
Seven wrestlers placed in the
Dec. 6 tournament, including
Bentancor (first place; won by
decision in the finals), Andy Cor-
dova (third place), Soriano (sixth
place), Baucum (third place),
Joey Cordova (first place; won
by technical pin in finals), Allen
(first place; won by technical pin
in finals) and Trevino (first place;
won by pin in finals)

Clewiston wrestling
meet on Saturday
Heading into the Dec. 20
competition the Saturday meet
will be held at Clewiston Middle
School, beginning at 10 a.m. Gay
is hoping that his team will finish
in the top two, at the very least.
In last season's Clewiston In-
vitational, held at Clewiston High
School, Clewiston, as a team,
won the meet, while Immokalee
was the runner-up.
This weekend, some key play-
ers won't be able to compete, but
Gay thinks the wrestling team will
be just fine.
"We'll be missing some our
studs, but I still think the young
kids we have will pull through,"
Gay said.
The teams that will be com-
peting in Saturday's meet include
Glades Central, Immokalee, Mar-
tin County, LaBelle, Evangelical
Christian, Golden Gate, Naples,
St. Andrews, Sebring, Gateway
Charter and Suwanee High.
The top three wrestlers in each
weight class will receive medals
and a special award will be given
out to the meet's most outstand-
ing wrestler.
The top two teams, according
to Gay, will earn plaques at the
end of the meet.
The rest of Clewiston's 2008-
2009 wrestling schedule is as fol-
lows:

Tournament and placed at the
Palm Beach Central Tournament.
Exantus, the team's captain,
was the runner-up at the Palm
Beach Central Tournament Coun-
ty runner-up last year and looking
to go to state this year.
Orelien, considered by Schultz
as a bright spot for the team,
placed first at the Palm Beach
Central Tournament
The 135-pound wrestler, ac-


cording to Schultz, now has a
10-1 record going into Saturday's
meet in Clewiston.
The Wellington Tournament
was held on Nov. 22, while the
Palm Beach Central Tournament
convened on Dec. 6.
On Dec. 10, the junior varsity
team went to the Seminole Ridge

Gators look for respect


By Naji Tobias
BELLE GLADE The Glades
Day Gators boys basketball team
is enjoying a nice run so far this
season. Building on last year's
success, as evidenced by their
18-7 overall record, Glades Day
is now considered on of the top
teams in Class 2A.
Currently sitting at a 5-1 re-
cord, the Gators, according to
last week's Associated Press
High School Boys Basketball
poll, were ranked No. 8 in Class
2A. The latest AP Class 2A state
poll was released on Tuesday.
The team's only loss this
season was a tough 56-53 loss
on Dec. 9 to neighboring rival
Clewiston, which has the same
won-loss record as Glades Day.
With that being said, it
wouldn't be a surprise if the Ga-
tors become state title contend-
ers once tournament play begins
in February.

Glades Day Gators
Head Coach: Jeff Browning
(second season)
Last season's final record:
18-7 (lost in District 13-2A semifi-
nals to Summit Christian)
Top Players: Sr. F Vince
Lewis, Sr. G/F Tariq Martin, Sr.
G Jairus Browning, Sr. G Alain
Damisse
Top Newcomers: Sr. G Ricky
Odige, Sr. G Ryan Romano
Veteran leadership will be the
key for this year's team, which
has a total of 10 seniors playing.
In fact, Browning says the
talent level in this program is so
deep, all of the juniors were rel-
egated to playing on the junior
varsity team.
Next year's crew, Browning
said, will all come from the JV
team, which consists of juniors
and sophomores.
"If any of the juniors moved
up to varsity, they likely wouldn't
see any playing time," Browning
said regarding the team's lineup.
Should Glades Day make a
run for the Class 2A state title this
season, it certainly won't be just
because of that veteran leader-
ship.
Another thing the Gators have
in their favor is their regular sea-

son schedule. In some cases,
playing a tough schedule could
ruin a team's season. But for
Glades Day, this likely won't be
the case. It's only beneficial to
a small-school team like Glades
Day, when it's scheduled to play
Class 6A teams such as Royal
Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gar-
dens, Seminole Ridge and John
1. Leonard.
Also, a series of district tests
awaits them as they seek to win
the District 13-2A tournament in
February. The district that Glades
Day plays in features teams like
Summit Christian, Benjamin,
King's Academy, American Her-
itage-Delray Beach, St. Edwards-
Vero beach and Jupiter Chris-
tian.
Summit Christian is the de-
fending district champion.
"It's gonna be a tough dis-
trict, we'll find out early how
well we compete with these
teams," Browning said. The sea-
son schedule will also include
the Derek Harper Holiday Classic
Tournament.
The holiday tournament, to
be played at Palm Beach Lakes
High School, will be held from
Dec. 26 to Dec. 29. It will feature
several basketball teams, includ-
ing Glades Central, a team that's
considered one of the best Class
4A teams in the state.
"Glades Central is gonna be
really good this year, I think,"
Browning said. "If we get to play
them, it will be great for every-
one from the Muck to watch."
According to Browning, the
only way Glades Day and Glades
Central will meet is if they both
advance to the Dec. 29 champi-
onship game.
More information on the Der-
ek Harper Classic will be avail-
able next week. As for Clewis-
ton, the home-and-home series
will continue on Feb. 3, a road
game for Glades Day.
It's the next-to-last regular
season game for the Gators.
"Our games with Clewiston
will be evenly matched," Brown-
ing said.
"I think both of our teams will
be very athletic and competitive
throughout the season."
But for Glades Day to avenge


its early season loss to Clewiston,
shot selection must be improved.
The Gators, as a team, shot just
28.8 percent (15-for-52 from the
floor) in its humbling defeat.
"We just need to keep work-
ing on that," Browning said.
"Clewiston played well through-
out the game. It'll work itself out,
we'll play better."
Here's Glades Day's 2008-

Mayaimis Indian Nation on Lake 0


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum Director
The coursing dark waters
of the creek moved sluggishly
through the evergreen islands of
cypress on a timeless journey to
Lake Okeechobee.
Small sloughs, feed by the
creek, hosted thousands of snowy
egrets and other wading birds
that moved silently; hunting and
stalking a menagerie of aquatic
creatures that inhibited these far
flung, fertile waters of the creek.
Overhead, the sun's orange
orb cast long filaments of light,
which captured the images along
the creek in a spectrum of colors
before brushing them in long,
shadowy strokes across the qui-
etly settled waters of the creek.
The picturesque image of an
Indian wood carver, gazing into
the predatory eyes of a bird figu-
rine, reflected across the placid
waters of the creek.
A panorama of images fol-
lowed, portraying an array of
shark teeth, Celts and pottery
shards surrounding the seated,
silent wood carver as he cradled
the newly resurrected, wooden
eagle that he had lovingly and ar-
tistically brought to life.
This tale depicts a real Indian
carver that once lived in a thriv-
ing Mayaimis Indian town on the
banks of Fisheating Creek.
Today my story leapfrogs
across the lake to Fort Center, a
state wildlife preserve near Lake-
port.
It's time to take '"A Walk in
the Past" to see how those early

Engagement


Glades residents lived.
Archeologists call the Mayai-
mis Indians the "Belle Glade Cul-
ture."
It is a term that describes a
unique Indian culture around
Lake Okeechobee and possibly
the Kissimmee River valley from
approximately 1,000 B.C. to 1,700
or 1,800 A.D.
The Indians that once lived at
Fort Center left behind distinct
culture patterns and artifacts that
identify them as the Mayaimis, the
"Belle Glade Culture."
The Mayaimis were not the
first people to settle and build a
town at Fort Center.
There were earlier inhabitants,
a smaller race of people that built
and lived on some of the mounds
that the later Mayaimis occupied.
These earlier inhabitants have
been found at many locations in
south Florida, but little is known
about them.
Our ole friend, Fontenando,
a Spanish slave of the Calusas,
gives us the name of a Mayaimis
town on Lake Okeechobee that
some historians have identified as
Fort Center.
Fontenando wrote the Calu-
sas were "The masters of a large
district of county, as far as a town
they call Guacata, on the Lake of
Mayaimi, which is called Mayaimi
because it is very large.
Around it are many little vil-
lages, which I will speak about
hereafter."
Archeologists believe the Gua-
cata town Fontanedo referred to
was not located at Fort Center, but
at another location in close prox-

engagement
Hilda Baldiva, of Clewiston;
Rudy Sanchez of Lyford, Texas;
Donetta LeClercq and George
Poppa of Clewiston are proud
to announce the engagement of


their daughter Sulema Sanchez to
Knox Mack of Clewiston.
The prospective groom is the
son of John and Vonita Mack of
Clewiston.
The wedding is planned for
October 10, 2009 at the Methodist
Church in Clewiston.
The bride-to-be is a 2002 grad-
uate of Clewiston High School.
She attends Edison Community
College.
She is employed as a Sales Ac-
counts Receivable and Accounts


imity to the Lake Okeechobee.
They have some clues that
point to the east side of the lake.
They think that Fontanedo and
Jonathan Dickison lend some
interesting tips in their memoirs
that positions the Guacata town
on the east side of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
Both write about a tribe on the
east coast called the Guacaras.
Was the tribe and Mayaimis town
name a coincidence?
There are large mounds on
Lake Okeechobee's eastern
shores that fit the size criteria for
the Guacata town, but east of
Lake Okeechobee lies another
large network of mounds called
"Big Mound."
The "Big Mound" complex is
within the old territorial boundar-
ies of the Guacaras tribe.
Back in the day, Lake Okeecho
bee was much larger during the
rainy season, and Fontanedo
could have identified "Big Mound"
as the town called Guacata on the
shores of Lake Okeechobee.
Hopefully archeologists will
uncover evidence in the future
that can identify Fontanedo's long
lost town.
The Mayaimis town at Fort
Center was large.
Archeologist, William H Sears,
identified a network of mounds
that are staggered for a mile along
Fisheating creek.
An interesting feature of the
mounds are the circular ditches
found along the creek.
One ditch circle forms a quar-
ter of a mile diameter, three or
four feet deep; archaeologists call

Staying Healthy During the Holiday


By Brenda Barnes
Planning Consultant & Public
Information Officer, Hendry
& Glades County Health
Departments
Ah, the holiday season has
snuck up on us once again. You
may be feeling a little stressed
out, but getting through the holi-
days doesn't need to take a toll on
your health. Try to manage your
time wisely by keeping a close
watch on over commitments and
over-spending. It may be hard to
do this time of year, but try to bal-
ance your work, home, and play.
Give a big smile and let those
"warm and fuzzy" feelings take
over that stress.
Give the gift of health and
safety to yourself and others by
following these holiday tips from
the Centers for Disease Control
and Prevention: (put the words to
the song you'll know it)
1. The first way to health, said
the CDC to me: Wash your hands
to be safe and healthy.
2. The second way to health,
said the CDC to me: Bundle up
for warmth, and wash hands to
be safe and healthy.
3. The third way to health,
said the CDC to me: manage your
stress, bundle up for warmth,
and wash hands to be safe and
healthy.
4. The fourth way to health,
said the CDC to me: Don't drink
and drive, manage your stress,
bundle up for warmth, and wash
hands to be safe and healthy.

said the CDC to me: Be smoke-
free, don't drink and drive, man-
age your stress, bundle up for


warmth, and wash hands to be
safe and healthy.
6. The sixth way to health, said
the CDC to me: Fasten belts while
driving, be smoke-free, don't drink
and drive, manage your stress,
bundle up for warmth, and wash
hands to be safe and healthy.
7. The seventh way to health,
said the CDC to me: Get exams
and screenings, fasten belts while
driving, be smoke-free, don't drink
and drive, manage your stress,
bundle up for warmth, and wash
hands to be safe and healthy.
8. The eighth way to health,
said the CDC to me: Get your vac-
cinations, get exams and screen-
ings, fasten belts while driving, be
smoke-free, don't drink and drive,
manage your stress, bundle up
for warmth, and wash hands to
be safe and healthy.
9. The ninth way to health,
said the CDC to me: Monitor the
children, get your vaccinations,
get exams and screenings, fasten
belts while driving, be smoke-
free, don't drink and drive, man-
age your stress, bundle up for
warmth, and wash hands to be
safe and healthy.
10. The tenth way to health,
said the CDC to me: Practice fire
safety, monitor the children, get
your vaccinations, get exams and
screenings, fasten belts while driv-
ing, be smoke-free, don't drink
and drive, manage your stress,
bundle up for warmth, and wash
hands to be safe and healthy.
11. The eleventh way to health,
said the CDC to me: Prepare din-
ner safely, practice fire safety,
monitor the children, get your vac-
cinations, get exams and screen-


ings, fasten belts while driving, be
smoke-free, don't drink and drive,
manage your stress, bundle up
for warmth, and wash hands to
be safe and healthy.
12. The twelfth way to health,
said the CDC to me: Eat well and
get moving, prepare dinner safely,
practice fire safety, monitor the
children, get your vaccinations,
get exams and screenings, fasten
belts while driving, be smoke-
free, don't drink and drive, man-
age your stress, bundle up for
warmth, and wash hands to be
safe and healthy!


this a Sun Circle.
Circular ditches and linear em-
bankments found at Fort Center
are characteristic of the "Belle
Glade Culture."
Archeologist William H Sears
spent six years researching the
Fort Center mounds.
He divided the Belle Glade
Culture at Fort Center into four
periods; 1 (1000 BCE -200 CE), II
(200 700), III (700- 1300), and
IV (1300- 1700).
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian town
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "A Walk in The Past."
This article on Fort Center can
come alive for you and your fami-
lies on January 10, 2009, when
the Florida Fresh Water and Game
Commission host a grand open-
ing. Everyone is invited.
Activities will include: swamp
buggy hayrides, archeology pre-
sentations, artifacts, archery, a
live reptile display, tracking les-
sons, oral history, and music and
crafts (showing how the Mayaisis
Indians lived).
I hope you enjoyed this story.
Please contact the Clewiston
Museum if you have questions,
artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale
of a Tale" that you would like to
share.
The Museum's hours are from

Health Care District names new hospital


Photo taken by John Ricksen
View of Lakeside Medical Center and its surrounding campus
under construction, November 2008.


Lakeside Medical
Center, on schedule
to open in the fall of
2009

The Board of Commission-
ers of the Health Care District
voted unanimously on Dec. 10 for
"Lakeside Medical Center" to be
the name for the new 70-private
bed hospital in western Palm
Beach County that is on track for
completion in the fall of 2009.
"This name captures what this
new hospital is all about-a mod-
ern medical facility that has been
strategically situated to serve
all the communities which hug
the southeastern shores of Lake
Okeechobee," said Board Chair
Jonathan R. Satter.
Lakeside Medical Center is be-
ing constructed on a 50-acre site
at the intersection of US 441 and
State Road 80, centrally located
with easy access from the three
towns of the region Belle Glade,


Pahokee, and South Bay. The 70-
bed hospital will be able to ac-
commodate a service area that
extends beyond the Tri-Cities.
"Lakeside Medical Center re-
flects a new beginning, and we
feel the name conveys that for-
ward-looking, positive view," said
Bryan Cross, Chair of the Glades
General Hospital Board. "The
name Lakeside Medical Center
represents all of our communities
and our close proximity to Lake
Okeechobee."
The Health Care District de-
signed Lakeside Medical Center
with the comfort, privacy, and
safety of patients, their families,
and visitors in mind. All inpatient
rooms are single-occupancy. In
addition, there are family friend-
ly consultation rooms, and an
enhanced Emergency Room to
swiftly and efficiently treat pa-
tients. The ER also has direct ac-
cess to a large helipad to facilitate
Trauma Hawk and other aero-
medical transport. To promote
care and comfort for new moth-
ers, their babies and their fami-


lies, the new hospital features six
private labor and delivery rooms
and a dedicated area for ten pri-
vate postpartum rooms. In addi-
tion, Lakeside Medical Center will
provide a state-of-the-art visitor
security system.
"Our goal is for patients to feel
comfortable and secure the min-
ute they enter the doors," said
Health Care District Chief Execu-
tive Officer Dwight D. Chenette.
"Lakeside Medical Center will
further advance the District's mis-
sion of ensuring access to a com-
prehensive health care system
and delivering quality services for
Palm Beach County residents."
Earlier this month, Glades
General Hospital Board members
were taken on a tour of the new
hospital by Michael J. Gates, the
Health Care District's Senior De-
velopment Director. Mr. Gates is
leading the development of the
campus and continues to ensure
that the scope, schedule and bud-
get objectives are achieved.
"It is such an impressive sight
to see all of the spacious private
patient rooms and how each
department inside the new
hospital is designed for maximum
efficiency," said Ronald Wiewora,
MD, Glades General Hospital's
Interim Administrator and Chief
Medical Officer of the Health
Care of Palm Beach County. "In
the near future, we look forward
to announcing several newly-
recruited physicians to join our
dedicated and veteran hospital
staff."
The Emergency Room has
been designed to handle patients'
needs efficiently and provide care
promptly. There will be 16 treat-
ment areas and six private rooms
in the Intensive Care Unit. In ad-
dition, there will be three "fast-
track" exam areas. On the cam-
pus just outside the Emergency
Room is an oversized helipad
for the District's Trauma Hawk
air-ambulances. Patients who
are traumatically injured will be
rushed to one of the two Trauma
Centers in Palm Beach County.


This is just one of the ways that
Lakeside Medical Center is inte-
grated into the District's county
wide health care delivery system.
When Lakeside Medical Center
opens, the staff and technology at
nearby Glades General Hospital
will be transitioned to the new
hospital, and Glades General will
be retired after more than sixty
years of service to the community.
From day one, Lakeside Medical
Center will function with state-
of-the-art technology, including a
16-slice CT scanner, an advanced
electronic patient records system,
and an Electronic Birth Registry
system, which enables the medi-
cal staff to gather patient data,
print out a report, and get the re-
quired electronic signatures all
at the bedside, within minutes.
The Health Care District has
committed $53 million toward
the $73 million hospital. The
Glades Healthcare Foundation, a
non-profit organization, is leading
the capital campaign to raise ad-
ditional funds for Lakeside Medi-
cal Center and for ongoing health
programs in the western com-
munities. If you wish to donate to
the campaign, please visit www.
gladeshealthcare.org


or call 561-833-8999.
More than just a medical cam-
pus, Lakeside Medical Center will
establish a new community hub
for the surrounding area, provid-
ing a wide range of health edu-
cation and wellness programs in
the numerous special meeting
and event rooms. The large medi-
cal campus has ample space for
future expansion.
After the District Board voted
on the new name of the hospi-
tal, Board member Effie C. Grear,
Ed.D., summed up: "Ever since
this project was first announced
more than two years ago, there's
been a groundswell of enthusi-
asm throughout the Glades. That
hope now has a name Lake-
side Medical Center."
About the Health Care District:
The Health Care District of
Palm Beach County provides
health coverage for low income
residents, a nationally recognized
trauma system, clinics with a
dedicated nurse in more than
170 public schools, a pharmacy
network, a long-term skilled

and acute care hospital services
at Glades General Hospital, the
county's only public hospital. The


Health Care District is in the pro-
cess of constructing the Lakeside
Medical Center to serve the Lake
Okeechobee region.

Foundation gives $150,000 to HRMC


By Glenda Wilson
On Dec. 9, Robbie Castel-
lanos, Chairman of the HRMC
Foundation (pictured on right),
was all smiles as he proudly pre-
sented a check in the amount
of $150,000 to Craig Cudworth,
Hospital CEO, and Victor Bland-
ford, Chairman of the Hospital
Board of Authority.
The funds will be used to-
wards the initial costs of the ar-
chitectural fees for the schematic
design and planning phase of the
new emergency room construc-
tion project.
The architectural firm, DEJA
(David E. Johnson Architect), re-
cently hired by Hendry Regional
Medical Center, will submit the
completed plans to the Agency
for Health Care Administration
(AHCA) for approval.
The Hendry Regional Medi-
cal Center (HRMC) Foundation

About Santa Claus; Folklore rooted in reality


My own opinions
regarding the belief
of Santa Claus

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D
Saint Martin's Church
He was most likely born in
Patura, in Asia Minor, in the fourth
century.
He was known to be faithful,
and became a church leader in
Mayra, the capital of the region.
It was a time of persecution
of Christian faithful and he was
believed to be imprisoned for his
belief.
He would stand against those
who attacked the Church later,


and defended his faith.
He would become known for
the special place he held among
children and sailors, providing
gifts for the young when their
families weren't able to do so.
His gifts were given in secret
but people really knew of his giv
ing to children and the word was
spread.
He did God's work with humil-
ity and where he saw real needs.
As you see the preparation for
the celebration of Christmas, you
will see the reminders of his life
and work in the proliferation of
"Santa Clauses" in stores and on
streets.
Saint Nicholas was a real per-
son; his life and ministry among
children were soon seen as hon-
oring the special child who came


at this time: Jesus of Nazareth.
The connection between the
Babe born in Bethlehem and one
who blessed the lives of children
became obvious to people and
"Santa Claus" soon became a
herald of "Christmas."
The person in the malls and
stores is our remnant of the real
person; I wonder how many of
the children who have been in-
heritors of Nicholas' goodness
and tradition know that he really
lived and really cared about the
children he met.
The answer to the question "Is
Santa Claus real?" is... "maybe not
now, but he was real, and today
he is real in the life that comes af-
ter this life"
His remains are buried in Bari,
Italy and he has been honored


for centuries for the ways he ex-
pressed his faith for the Lord's
little ones.
The story of Christmas itself is
a story of a historic event and the
most special person in history.
It is about someone who lived
among us and how He came into
a difficult world, did not have an
easy life, gave Himself for others
and who also deserves to be re-
membered.
Christmas is special because
it is about real persons and what
they did for those around them,
and finally what they did for us
too.
When someone says that
Christmas doesn't seem special,
I wonder if they really know the
stories and heritage left to us that
is to be kept during this special


season.
Truth is stranger than fiction;
reality is far better than fantasy.
If there is something to be
handed down to our children,
something to restore the spirit of
the holidays that are soon here, it
is in celebrating what they're re-
ally about.
Do I believe in "Santa Claus?"
Yes.
Not the ersatz version of fic-
tional character with the sleigh
and reindeer, but the real Saint
Nicholas who loved children and
loved his Lord; and did good for
them because that was what his
faith led him to do.
He saw something special in
children and did something about
it.
The Lord Himself also became


a child when He chose to come
among us; sharing with us all of
the days here in a human family
and shared with brothers and sis-
ters; and knew the magic of fam-
ily and loved ones as He grew into
adulthood.
His coming and what He tran-
scends all of the legends and folk
stories that have grown up since.
Like other stories and folklore,
they can point to a truth beyond
themselves; may this season and
all the signs we see point to that
story beyond, and may we keep
it and celebrate it with the worthi-
ness and love for the Baby who is
at the root of it all.


Two story of two babes in a Bethlehem manger


How the story of
Christmas was
interpreted by a child

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Sometimes God comes to peo-
ple with the heavens ablaze as He
did to the shepherds.
More often though, God re-
veals himself in more quiet ways
- like in the words of encourage-
ment spoken by a friend, or in a
child's smile, or the meaningful
touch of someone close to us or
even in "a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger."
Take six year old Misha's per-
spective on the Christmas story.


In 1994, some American mis-
sionaries were allowed to go into
Russia and teach at an orphan-
age.
At Christmas time, Misha was
one of the orphans who heard the
Christmas story for the first time.
Here is what happened as re-
lated from one of the missionar-
ies.
"We told them about Mary
and Joseph arriving in Bethle-
hem. Finding no room in the
inn, the couple went to a stable,
where the baby Jesus was born
and placed in a manger.
"Throughout the story, the
children and orphanage staff
sat in amazement as they lis-
tened. Some sat on the edges of
their stools, trying to grasp every


word."
"Completing the story, we gave
the children three small pieces of
cardboard to make a crude man-
ger. Each child was given a small
paper square, cut from yellow
napkins I had brought with me.
"No colored paper was avail-
able in the city. Following instruc-
tions, the children tore the paper
and carefully laid strips in the
manger for straw.
"Small squares of flannel,
cut from a worn-out nightgown
an American lady was throwing
away as she left Russia, were
used for the baby's blanket.
"A doll-like baby was cut from
tan felt we had brought from the
United States.
"The orphans were busy as-


sembling their mangers as I
walked among them to see if they
needed any help.
"All went well until I got to one
table where little Misha sat he
looked to be about 6 years old
and had finished his project.
"As I looked at the little boy's
manger, I was startled to see not
one, but two babies in the man-
ger.
"Quickly, I called for the trans-
lator to ask the lad why there were
two babies in the manger.
"Crossing his arms in front of
him and looking at his completed
manger scene, the child began to
repeat the story very seriously.
"For such a young boy, who
had heard the Christmas story
only once, he related the happen-


ings accurately until he came to
the part where Mary put the baby
Jesus in the manger.
"Then Misha started to ad lib.
He made up his own ending to
the story as he said, 'And when
Mary laid the baby in the manger,
Jesus looked at me and asked me
if I had a place to stay.
"I told him I have no mamma
and I have no papa, so I don't
have any place to stay.
'Then Jesus told me I could
stay with him. But I told him I
couldn't, because I didn't have
a gift to give him like everybody
else did. But I wanted to stay with
Jesus so much, so I thought about
what I had that maybe I could use
for a gift. I thought maybe if I kept
him warm, that would be a good


gift.
'So I asked Jesus, "If I keep you
warm, will that be a good enough
gift?" And Jesus told me, "If you
keep me warm, that will be the
best gift anybody ever gave me."
"So I got into the manger, and
then Jesus looked at me and he
told me I could stay with him for
always."
Christmas contains the prom-
ise that if we go to the manger
we will find the One who will stay
with us always.
In the midst of his situation,
Misha found that assurance. We
can do the same.
This Christmas, let us forget
about life's pressing demands for
a moment and snuggle in next to
the Christ child.


And that is the reason that Jesus Christ came!

a small baby.
The rough men known for
their wild living weren't sure what
to do with the baby, but soon be-

cisions and changes.
Instead of putting the baby in a
dirty wooden box, they bought a
rosewood cradle.

dirty clothes back on, they bought
new ones.

Instead of leaving the house
dirty, they washed the windows,
painted the walls and ceiling, and
cleaned the floor.
The baby needed rest at night,
so this caused them to be quiet--

Soon the men were cleaning
up each day.
As the men changed their way
of life, Roaring Mine Camp also
changed.

Palm Tran
The board decided to continue
to contribute to the Palm Tran
public transportation which runs
from the Clewiston area to Palm
Beach County. Several residents
asked the commissioners not to
derail the transportation, citing
the dire need of many residents
without other options to go to
work, school and doctor's ap-
pointments.
The board will designate
$60,000 this year for the purpose,
but will also ask Palm Beach
County to look for ways to trim
the expense.

She said the district was "cre-
