HENDRY COUNTY -- If there
was ever anyone who could
identify with the plight of the
immigrant students in Hendry
County, it is hard to imagine
someone other than Erlinda
Brown.
Because she stared in the
face of an oppressive dictator-
ship and left rather than teach
war.
Because for weeks she toiled
in the fields and wondered if
her dream of teaching would
remain simply a dream.


Because today, she might
wonder whether her time at
Clewiston Middle was nothing
but a dream.

A new start
At least professionally, Mrs.
Brown was happy in her na-
tive country of Nicaragua. She
taught English there as a second
language to teenage students
there for some time, but a rift in
the country's political climate
would put an end to that.
In the late 1970s, she was
ordered to use words like "en-
emigo" and "fusil" and "ma-
tar," Spanish terms for enemy,

Hendry county commissioners hold meeting


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Supervisor of Elections Lucre-
tia Strickland presented a state-
ment for $6,000 in attorney's
fees to the county commission
at its Jan. 27 meeting in LaBelle.
It will be the initial payment for
her defense in former Property
Appraiser Kristina Kulpa's law-
suit over the Nov. 4 election. Ms.
Kulpa is suing the Hendry Coun-
ty Canvassing Board, Ms. Strick-
land and her former opponent,
now Property Appraiser Phillip
Pelletier, citing what she claims
are irregularities in the voting
process.


She filed the lawsuit with the
20th Circuit Court on Nov. 24,
2008.
Ms. Strickland told the board
she felt the need for the county
to absorb these bills could have
been prevented if the county at-
torney would agree to represent
her as a constitutional officer.
However, Mr. Lapp said he
checked with other counties and
decided his defense of Ms. Strick-
land would be a conflict of inter-
est. Besides, he said, if he took
on that additional burden, he
would not be able to take proper
care of the county's other legal
business.


Ms. Strickland took the op-
portunity to promise the taxpay-
ers that there had been no mis-
conduct by her staff with regard
to the election. She said, "A five
is a five and it's a fact of life." Ms.
Kulpa lost her bid for reelection
by five votes.
Highway intersec-
tion
County Administrator Judi
Kennington-Korf asked and re-
ceived the board's blessing on
moving the SR80/US27 intersec-
tion to the county's number one
transportation issue. It must be
accomplished before SR 80 can


be widened.

Room to grow
The board decided it was not
interested in purchasing the Da-
vis property west of Courthouse,
including the old Long Branch,
Don's Steakhouse and a storage
building. The board felt the Mc-
Cormick property south of the
Courthouse would be more use-
ful.
Commissioner Kevin McCa-
rthy noted that, at some point in
the future when the jail is moved,
the county will get use of the jail
site back, so there will be room


to expand. He also didn't like the
idea of taking prime commercial
property off the tax rolls.
Commissioner Tris Chap-
man called for a breakdown of
finances for each department so
the commissioners can better
understand how their funds are
used.
Public hearings
The old Evercane refinery
property was rezoned from
agriculture/heavy industry to
Planned Unit Development. The
240 acres at 3013 CR 835 is to be-
come the site of an industrial and

McMillan placed at
the top, after finish-
ing second last year

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON McMillan
beamed as he held the $100,000
check over his head. The sight
of tan lines could be seen on
his face following almost a
week's worth of watching the
reflection of the sun in the wa-
ters. It all paid off for the Glades
resident.
Jimmy McMillan, who calls
Lake Okeechobee his home,


posted an impressive win at the
2009 Walmart FLW Series BP
Eastern event in Clewiston on
Saturday.
His four-day total gave him
a comfortable margin of victory
over his closest opponent.
In his first try last year,
McMillan came very close to
cinching the first place spot, but
managed to grab the second
place spot. Following the nar-
row loss for first, it seemed he
made up his mind not to lose
out to anyone this year, and
consistently wowed the crowds
with impressive catches.


First Day
If there was any early indica-
tion that McMillan was going to
take the tournament, Wednes-
day, Jan. 28 was not it.
McMillan shared a three-way
tie for eighth place, along with
Kevin Long, of Clewiston, and
Koby Kreiger, of Okeechobee.
Their 19-pound, 10-ounce
catches was eclipsed by Scott
Lunsford's 25-pound, 15-ounce
total. The Calhoun, Ga. native
also caught the biggest fish, a
10-pound, 3-ounce bass.

Va., and Dave Lefebre, of Union

INI Florida Petty Officer 2nd
Class Erick Leib, an aviation
survival technician from Coast
Guard Air Station Sitka, is sched-
uled to receive the Distinguished
Flying Cross at the Air Station
Thursday.
Lieb was nominated for the
Distinguished Flying Cross for his
heroic actions during the 2007
flooding of Chehalis, Wash.
On Dec. 3, 2007, Lieb was
part of an air crew that despite
winds of up to 80 knots was able
to save 39 lives. The rescues
ranged from picking up survi-
vors off roofs to deploying down
into the flood waters to rescue
dogs and other animals.
"We did what we could,"
Lieb said. "We picked up kids,
the elderly and even animals."
The rescue started with ap-


proximately two hours of day
light remaining and continued
long into the night for both Lieb
and the air crew.
"During most of the evolu-
tions we were subjected to
night time conditions with 30
knot wind gusts, rain, and poor
visibility," Lieb stated. "All of this
in an unfamiliar area full of ob-
stacles such as live power lines
and tall trees".
The Distinguished Flying
Cross is America's oldest mili-
tary aviation award.
Lieb also received the Air
Medal award during the 2008
USO Awards Banquet.
Lieb graduated from Clewis-
ton High School in 1998. His
parents, Fred and Debbi Lieb,
reside in Bokeelia, Fla.

Letters to the Editor


Our Great Utilities
Company
Dear Editor: On the coldest
day of the year I woke up at 3:15
in the morning with my 86 year
old
Mother on the floor in a dia-
betic coma state. The central heat
at been off for hours and I had
not noticed. It was 60 degrees in
the house. I first got my Mother
off the floor and under a lot of
blankets then called to City to ask
if anyone had reported low volt-
age. Their replay was no. I said
thank you and went about check-
ing all that I knew to check. It was
definitely low voltage. I called my
electrician husband and he gave
me several things to check and
said that it had to be the City. So-
I called them back, explained in
haste the situation and gave them
the address. Within 30 minutes, I
had people working on the lines.
Five o'clock in the morning, 31


degrees outside, dark, cold, and I
am sure that they had no coffee.
The coldest day of the year and
there they were with good atti-
tudes. The problem was located
and within minutes, everyone
on the line had no 220 voltage..
The problem was located and
fixed with the City's crew in the
next couple of hours. They even
stopped to ask if my mother was
OK. It seems like one of the nice
gentlemen has a lot of diabetics in
his family. Where else or in what
big city would you get the service
that we receive? Next time we are
grumbling about our electrical or
garbage, take a minute to reflect
on the blessing that
We have in our small little
town.
Thank you Utilities Company!

Cougar fresh start
The Clewiston Cougars is a
non-profit organization which


has existed many years in the
community. Our mission is to
provide discipline to our youth,
which can be used on and off
the field of play. In order to instill
positive qualities to the youth, we
need positive mentors who serve
as board members, coaches, and
team parents.
The 2009 year has brought
back old members as well as
brought in new members for
the season to include: Al Gary
Sr.- President, Keith White- V
President, Ellen Clemmons- Trea-
surer, April White Secretary,
Tameka Warren- Asst. Secretary,
Will Demery-Athletic Dir., Johnny
Jackson- Asst. AD, Juan Norton,
Shawn Whitlock, Mike Carmona,
and Emmanuel Terry.
The current board members
would like to give much thanks
to all the board members from
2005 2008 for their hard work
and dedication to the Cougar or-


ganization. The members who
took over in 2005 were handed
$32,000.00 of debt and $123.00
in the checking account to start
the season. Many bridges were
burned and hands closed due
to financial problems which oc-
curred prior to 2005.
Today, the Cougar organization
is debt free, which will allow the
2009 members the opportunity to
focus on the needs of the kids and
not old debt.
We are hoping to remedy any
bad feelings with the community
as we start the new season by
inviting you to our monthly meet-
ings and asking for your support.
Next meeting is scheduled for
Feb. 12 at 6 p.m. in the locker
rooms. We are asking anyone
who is interested in coaching to
come out.
Sincerely,
2009 Cougar Board Mem-

recognized with at
least one player

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida

2008 football season was one
that fans across the area won't
soon forget.
Many of the area's high school
athletes accomplished spectacu-
lar individual statistics, some for
the record books.

who committed to Georgia State
University yesterday, set a sin-

2,043 yards, along with 21 touch-

sation Kelvin Taylor, who's the
son of NFL running back Fred

astounding 27 touchdowns and
1,692 yards on the ground.

'L.J.' Thomas led all area quarter-

Underclassmen look to shine on national stage


Scout.com 7-on-7
tournament set for
March 14-15 at USF

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PALM BEACH COUNTY Meet
the Palm Beach County All-Stars.
That consists of some of the
area's best high school football
players in the Class of 2010.
With the Class of 2009 taking
part in National Signing Day yes-
terday, the focus is now on the
juniors.
There's no better way for Class
of 2010 college prospects to in-
crease their stock than partici-
pating in camps, as analysts and
recruiter like to point out.
Maryshal Rothman (Jupiter
Christian) and De'Joshua John-
son (Pahokee) understand that
reality, as they created a seven-
on-seven team last week.
The two highly regarded ju-
niors, who have become good
friends, met each other at the
2007 Class 1A state champion-
ship game.
"At this point, De'Joshua


wasn't even a star yet," Rothman
remembers.
"But he told me he was gonna
be and I believed him," he con-
tinued.
"Guess he was right, I could
trust him."
Currently on the Class of 2010
ESPN150 Watch List, Johnson is
considered the top overall pros-
pect in the Muck.
He's also regarded as one of
the top 250 players in the country,
according to Rivals.com.
That's reason enough for the
Jupiter Christian quarterback to
tap Johnson as a co-captain for
the Palm Beach County All-Stars.
The all-star team, which will
also feature Royal Palm Beach
wideout Chris Dunkley, is slated
to compete in a national seven-
on-seven tournament, sponsored
by Badger Sports.
It's worth noting that Dunkley
and Johnson were recently re-
garded as the two top performers
in the Jan. 4 Under Armour (UA)
All American Underclassmen
Camp, held in Orlando.
The competition, to be hosted
by Fox Sports and Scout.com, will
be taking place from March 14-15
at the University of South Florida


(USF) in Tampa.
"I had a few guys in mind, like
De'Joshua and Chris," Rothman
said.
"I absolutely wanted them to
play with me," Rothman said.
Assigning Johnson to the
Muck area, Rothman picked up
some of the best talent the coast
has to offer.
Considering the fact that a
maximum of 16 players could
be on the team, Rothman picked
players like Florida commit Matt
Elam (Dwyer) and Jupiter Chris-
tian teammates Will Powers, Dan-
ny Meyer and Weston Pedersen.
Johnson tapped teammates
Fred Pickett and Merill Noel to
play.
Noel, a defensive back for the
Pahokee Blue Devils last season,
posted a 4.38 40-yard dash time
at the UA Underclassmen Camp
last month.
Pickett has picked up offers
from several colleges, including
Florida State and LSU, among
others.
"The Pahokee boys give so
much respect to those who per-
form on the field and play well,"
Rothman said.
"They've been real welcoming


to us, like we're buddies to them,"
Rothman continued, on behalf of
his all-star teammates.
'After that, the rest of the piec-
es fell into place."
The Palm Beach County All-
Star team consists of these under-
classmen:
Pahokee: De'Joshua Johnson
(Palm Beach County All-Stars co-
captain), Merill Noel, Fred Pickett
(transferred from Glades Central
last month)
Glades Central: QB Leron
'L.J.' Thomas, DB Travis Bell, RB
Antwon Chisolm
Jupiter Christian: QB Mary-
shal Rothman (Palm Beach Coun-
ty All-Stars co-captain), RB Will
Powers, TE Danny Meyer, WR/DB
Weston Pedersen
Dwyer: RB Matt Elam (2008
Lou Groza Athlete of the Year),
TE Gerald Christian, WR/DB Rob-
ert Clarke
Royal Palm Beach: WR Chris
Dunkley (Class of 2010 ESPN150
Watch List player; potential rivals.
com five-star recruit)
American Heritage-Delray
Beach: RB Darius Milines
A first team Class IB All-State
selection, Rothman looks to im-
prove on last season's standing,


when the 'Purple Team' (consist-
ing of Jupiter Christian and Au-
burndale) reached the national
semifinals.
The Purple Team lost to the
South Florida Express, which
featured the Class of 2009's best
athletes from Broward and Dade
County, including Mirimar's Eu-
gene Smith.
The team of Pahokee/Tampa-
Plant took home the Badger
Sports 7-on-7 national champion-
ship last year, defeating the South
Florida Express in the finals.
The championship-winning
team featured the likes of Aaron
Murray (Plant), Orson Charles
(Plant), Nu'Keese Richardson
(Pahokee), Brandin Hawthorne
(Pahokee), Vincent Smith (Paho-
kee) and Jarvis Byrd (Pahokee).
Now, for this year's competi-
tion, Rothman believes he could
lead the Palm Beach County All-
Stars to a national title.
Of course, Pahokee will have
a chance to repeat as national
champions, albeit with a different
team this time.
"This team we have here is
clearly the best in the state for the
tournament," Rothman said.
There will be three other


Florida teams in the tournament,
which consist of the South Florida
Express, Big Bend (Tallahassee
area) and Tampa (mostly Plant
players).
Teams from Alabama, North
Carolina, South Carolina, Geor-
gia, Tennessee and Mississippi are
also likely to compete.
Rothman on why no one from
Glades Day's 2010 class was
picked:
"I don't really know anyone
from there," Rothman said.
"We just tried to do the best we
could with the space we had."
Practice dates and locations
are forthcoming, according to
Rothman.
If the state clears the Palm
Beach County All-Stars to com-
pete, which shouldn't be an issue,
then they'll be ready to go.
"It's gonna be tough for every-
one to get on the field, but we'll
make it happen," Rothman said.

the competition, you could visit

Spanish Forts



and Missions in



South Florida


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Long oars rose and fell like
cutlasses, each oar blade flash-
ing in the sunlight before slicing
through the aqua green waters
with master strokes that launched
the boat forward. Spanish sailors,
burnt brown by a thousand suns,
pulled the oars in unison, propel-
ling the long boat across the bays
short, choppy seas. Plumes of
frothy, white spray flew across the
rising and falling bow, as the boat
ploughed through the waves,
leaving long, creamy furrows in
its wake.
The steady, creaking rhythm
of rowing oars skirted the boat
across the bay into a small inland
river that twisted its way through
a maze of intertwining, mangrove
islands. A small bay opened in
the green void revealing a crudely
fashioned Spanish fort at the wa-
ters edge. Oars were lifted and
the helmsman steered the boat
silently to the empty shore.
A slight shudder ran through
the boat as its shallow keel
grounded in the soft muddy, bay
bottom. Soldiers, poised like rap-
tors in the boat's bow, leaped
into the shallow bay and stood
prepared at the water's edge with
cocked crossbows, waiting for
signs of life, hostile or friendly.
This fictitious yarn reveals a
small, remote Spanish fort held
captive in a wild and hostile land
called "La Florida." It is time to
take "A Walk in The Past" and
read more tall tales about the
Spanish settlements and missions
in Florida.
In 1566, the Spanish built a
fort at Tampa Bay, where the To-
cobaga Indians lived. Father Ro-
gel, a Spanish Jesuit priest, was
with the Spanish and started a
mission at the fort. The Spaniards
constructed a second fort called
Fort Antonio in 1567, at the prov-
ince of Calus, which is located on
present day Charlotte Harbor.
Father Rogel left the Tampa
Bay mission to help start a new
mission at Ft. Antonio. He was at
Fort Antonio when news reached
him that the rainy season had de-
stroyed the supplies at the Tampa
Bay fort. He was told that the set-
tlement was suffering badly and
needed help, or it would perish.
Father Rogel had lived at Fort
Antony one month when news of


the beleaguered fort reached him.
During this time he had made no
converts and was forever under
the scrutinizing eyes of the Calusa
Casique Carlos, who hated him
and waited for the opportune
time to sacrifice him. These fac-
tors helped Father Rogel feel a
stronger loyalty to the Tampa Bay
mission.
In 1567, he sailed to Havana,
Cuba and notified the suppliers
of Pedro Menendez de Avilis that
the Spanish soldiers stationed at
the beleaguered fort on Tampa
Bay were in dire need of supplies.
An expedition was immediately
formed in Havana and command-
ed by Pero Menendez Marques,
who was Pedro Menendez de
Avilis's nephew. Father Rogel ac-
companied the Spanish expedi-
tion to Tampa Bay. They arrived
at the fort, which consisted of
small shelters and a barricade of
logs, but no one was home.
The Spanish party found two
murdered soldiers, who had been
captured and kept as slaves, until
the Indians saw the Spanish ships
enter Tampa Bay. Indians told
the Spanish that the garrison was
overrun when the soldier's sup-
plies had become exhausted. No
doubt the Tocobaga Indians took
advantage of the soldiers' ill for-
tune at the fort and saw this as an
opportune time to rid themselves
of uninvited guest.
Some of the Indians told Father
Rogel that the Spanish soldiers
were killed because they were
mean spirited. Spanish conquis-
tadors and soldiers were arrogant
and cruel to the Indians in living
in Spain's "New World Empire,"
so they probably were mean spir-
ited to the Tocobaga Indians.
Father Rogel interpreted the
Spanish fort massacre differently.
He wondered if the Spanish had
become a burden to the Indians
or if the Tocobaga Casique feared
he was going be murdered and
replaced like the Calusa casique
Carlos. The Spanish expedition
commander, Pero Menendez
Marques, brought closure to the
Spanish fort and massacre, when
he ordered the Indian villages and
Spanish fort burned at Tampa
Bay.

Pertussis, you may remember


it as Whooping Cough


Don't underestimate
the severity of the
disease

By Brenda Barnes
Continuing with the topic
of bacteria, how many folks re-
member hearing their parents or
grandparents talk about whoop-
ing cough?
The clinical name for whoop-
ing cough is Pertussis.
It is a very contagious bacterial
respiratory illness caused by bac-
teria known as Bordetella pertus-
sis.
Anyone can get whooping
cough and it can be a very seri-
ous disease, especially for infants
because it can develop into pneu-
monia (lung infection).
It is usually spread when an in-
fected person coughs or sneezes
and those tiny droplets fly out of


their body and spread to those
around them.
Symptoms may start out simi-
lar to that of the common cold,
with runny nose, congestion,
sneezing, and mild cough or fe-
ver.
But after one to two weeks,
the severe coughing begins.
The coughing continues over
and over so rapidly and so vio-
lently that the air is forced out of
the lungs and when the person
can finally inhale, they make a
loud "whooping" noise.
Many doctor visits may be
required before pertussis is con-
sidered as a reason for their long-
term cough.


The best way to help prevent
whooping cough is to make sure
that you and your children have
been vaccinated.
Vaccination for Pertussis be-
came available in the 1940's and
it should be part of your family's
vaccination schedule.
Parents, please take time to re-
view your family's immunization
records to make sure they are up
to date.
If you have questions, please
talk to your healthcare provider
about your family's vaccination
needs.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!


Brittany Bacallao, Jr. Miss
Hendry, and Kylie Pencar-
inha, Miss Hendry County.

Pro Steadman Scholarship


Fund Cake Auction


The male celebrity cake auc-
tion will take place on Thursday,
Feb. 12 at the Hendry County
Fairgrounds at 7 p.m. Please
come out and give your support
to raise money for the Pro Stead-
man Scholarship Fund. The Pro
Steadman Scholarship Fund was
started as a community project
in honor of Mrs. Pro Steadman.
"Pro" was the mother of five
4-H'ers, a leader for ten years,
and was very active in all sectors
of the 4-H program. She believed
in the 4-H organization and see-
ing it reach its full potential for
bringing families together and


keeping members interested in
worthwhile projects. She was
diagnosed with ALS (commonly
known as Lou Gehrig's disease)
in May of 1988. Throughout her
struggle with the disease, she
maintained her interest and in-
volvement in youth programs as
much as she physically could. She
died in December of 1992, but still
lives on in the hearts of the many
that she influenced.
Mrs. Yvonne Swindle, Current
President of the Hendry County
Fair Association, came up with
the idea of starting an annual
men's cake auction at the Coun-


ty Fair to raise money to award
two 4-H members with scholar-
ships in honor of Pro. The idea
involved many male "celebrities"
from our local communities and
required them to bake a cake to
be auctioned at the Fair. The idea
really took off and with the help
of many generous cake makers,
cake buyers, volunteers, and fair
directors the auction now raises
the money to provide two college
scholarships each year to worthy
4-H members.
For more information, please
contact the 4-H Office at 863-674-
4092 or 863-983-1598.

I believe we all need some rescuing hugs


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Kyrie and Brielle Jackson were
born on 17 Oct. 1995 at the Mas-
sachusetts Memorial Hospital in
Worcester, MA., 12 weeks ahead
of their due date.
Each of the twins weighed all
of two pounds at birth. Though
Kyrie was putting on a bit of
weight in the days following her
arrival, Brielle was not doing as
well. The oxygen level in her
blood was low, and her weight
gain was slow. She cried a great
deal, leaving her gasping and
blue-faced.
On November 12, Brielle went
into critical condition. She be-
gan gasping for breath, and her
face and stick thin arms and legs
turned bluish-gray. Her heart rate
was way up, and she got hiccups,
a dangerous sign that her body


was under stress. Her parents
watched, terrified that she might
die.
Nurse Gayle Kasparian tried
everything she could think of to
stabilize Brielle. She suctioned her
breathing passages and turned up
the oxygen flow to the incubator.
Still Brielle squirmed and fussed
as her oxygen intake plummeted
and her heart rate soared.
Then Kasparian remembered
something she had heard from
a colleague. It was a procedure,
common in parts of Europe but
almost unheard of in this coun-
try, that called for double-bedding
multiple-birth babies, especially
preemies. Getting the parents'
permission, Kasparian slipped
the squirming baby into the incu-
bator holding the sister she hadn't
seen since birth.
When she put Brielle in the
incubator with her sister Kyrie,


almost immediately Brielle snug-
gled up to Kyrie. Her blood-oxy-
gen saturation levels, which had
been frighteningly low, soared.
She began to breathe more eas-
ily. The frantic crying stopped and
her normal pinkish color quickly
returned. As she dozed, Kyrie
wrapped her tiny arm around her
smaller sibling in a rescuing hug.
A picture was taken.
Over the next weeks, her
health improved steadily in her
new, less lonely quarters. When
last heard from, Brielle and Kyrie
were healthy preschoolers. The
media attention brought about by
their story and the now-famous
photo caused their parents, Heidi
and Paul Jackson of Westminster,
to change their telephone num-
ber.
Are you touched by this story?
If you say yes, it can mean that you
are emotionally affected. In an-


other context, if you are touched
it could mean you are a little cra-
zy. Touched, it's a great word that
can mean many things!
When we touch up something
we remove blemishes. A touch
down means we score. Being
touched in the head can mean
something is not right mentally.
Being touched in the heart means
that you were affected deeply.
Saying, "He touched me!" can
mean excitement if it's someone
you like, but it can be an expres-
sion seeking punishment if it hap-
pens to be your brother after your
parents told you both to behave
and keep your hands to yourself.
Touching can mean a warm


embrace between friends or sig-
nificant others, a firm handshake
in greeting, or a pat on the back.
It can also mean inappropriate
groping, a shove away, or a slap
in the face (physically or emotion-
ally).
The truth is, all of us need to
be appropriately touched. Appro-
priate touches release something
in the brain called endorphins.
Endorphins generally give a gen-
eral boost in the mood and hap-
piness of an individual, and are
at the root of what athletes call
the "Runners High." People need
touch in order to survive, or they
become "touched," as in not right
mentally.


Consider the truth of how im-
portant touch can be in our lives.
The failing twin was healed by
the embrace of her sister. We,
too, can bring healing through
our embraces and touches. Think
how much brighter our day be-
comes when we are touched in
a special way by a special person
(or animal!).
One study I read said that we
need the equivalent of 12 good
hugs or positive affirmations a
day in order to survive, and 17 or
more in order to thrive.
In the name of God, for the
glory of God, let us go out and
help people thrive!


"We yo nee a sevie I a prfsioa!


What would Jesus drive?



How would he pay for it?


r __6 *


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We have a reference to Jesus
and "transportation" in the Palm
Sunday story; when He instructs
His disciples to borrow a colt.
(Matthew 21:3, e.g.) Otherwise
He seemed to walk every place or
take a boat. His reason was that
"The Lord needs them (the ani-
mals)" and that was a sufficient
reason. A while ago, a young per-
son was meeting a community
service obligation at a Church I
served and he told me about the
car deal that he was offered.
I asked him if his current
"wheels" would last him another
two years and he replied affir-
matively. We sat down and did
the math; so many payments for
so much time, the allowance for
the current car, the length of pay-
ments; the financed cost versus
the cost if paid for outright. We
were into four digits before long
and he looked surprised. We
agreed: it was his money and he
held off. There is a difference be-
tween need and want! I was look-
ing at houses one day and one


particular house interested me.
The realtor told me the price, the
current mortgage and the month-
ly payments, the length of the
mortgage and all else that was in-
volved in the sale. I told her "That
house is going to cost me about
three times the asking price when
I am done paying for it." She told
me "Most people don't think that
way." I am sure she was right.
The Bible speaks of our finan-
cial relationships more in the Old
Testament than the New; It talks
about interest charges (cf Exodus
22:23) and the protection of the
poor from exploitation (cf Exo-
dus 22:25) as well as loans to "the
family" of believers.
It gets back to "Am I my broth-
er's keeper?" The relationship
between borrower and lender is
more than a contractual one it is
a matter of faith on both parts.
The faith on the part of the lender
is that there will be a repayment
and the faith on the part of the
borrower is that the debt will be
repaid is at the root of the agree-
ment.
When a lender is more inter-
ested in making a loan or a bor-
rower is more interested in getting

a possession, their relationship is
a flawed one. "Am I my brother's
keeper?" Yes, and it applies to
any relationship when there is a
possibility of exploitation. Don't
borrow if you're not sure about
paying back; don't lend if you
see some reason the borrower
will have problems. We're faced
with failing households, credit
problems, international market
problems and our personal and
interpersonal ethics (or lack of
them) affects us all.
Balancing between a fair re-
turn, a reasonable credit load,
living and doing business within
one's limits has implications for
the faithful. It also has implication
for our households, our society,
our future. A former theologian
once stated that "we're meant
to love people and use things,
and instead we love things and
use people." The Lord gave His
life for people and wasn't really
concerned about possessions or
how to acquire them, and gave
us a clue.
"The Lord needs..." and after
needing, to balance carefully with
our obligations. Respecting our
limits and the limits of others.

City, Pa., rounded out the top

Trailing but certainly not out,
McMillan came back on Thursday
to reel in 23 pounds, 3 ounces.
He passed Lunsford with a two-
day total of 42 pounds, 13 ounces
to Lunsford's 39 pounds, four
ounces.
Ray Scheide, of Dover, Ark.,
finished in third place, with a two-
day total of 35 pounds, 2 ounces,
still very much in the game.


Third Day
After nabbing the top spot on
the second day, McMillan was de-
termined not to let the position
slip from his fingers again, and
returned on Friday to maintain
the lead. Though several others

knife and kill. She watched how
militants ordered to supervise the
lessons in schools obligated the
young men to join the cause.
When her students asked her
what she could do to help them,
Mrs. Brown had no answers for
them.
The events shaped her deci-
sion to flee the country.
Arriving in America in the
1980s, she joined her sister in Hen-
dry County, but because she had
no proper paperwork, she spent
several months picking tomatoes
in the fields while she waited to
hear back on her request to be
granted asylum.
With her back to the sun on
those days, she thought about
teaching the most.
It was much later, while they
interviewed her at the Clewis-
ton Adult School for a position
she understood she wouldn't be
getting, that a fax was received.
It was for a paraprofessional at
Clewiston Middle. She thanked
the interviewer and headed to
that school.
Along the way Mrs. Brown
married, in 1992 to Justin Brown.
Her staple fortitude has been test-
ed time and again, and yet again,
when her husband died of cancer
in 2004. Since then, it has been
Mrs. Brown and her students.


A fork in the road
Mrs. Brown arrives early in the
morning and tends to the rules of
the dress code, poring over her
students' outfits to make sure
there aren't any violations. They
aren't always in compliance.
She follows her kids from class
to class, soaking up the lessons
herself first, and then translating
them to the kids' native language.
Although she says her work is
not difficult, she must deal with
students who may have come to
this country with a lower level of
education. They are quite intel-
ligent, by any measure, but in
their homeland, they didn't have
access to education like we do in
America, Mrs. Brown explained.
The kids are like any others,
she said, and only their language
separates them from the rest of
the students in Hendry County.
They have big dreams, and talk
of becoming doctors and lawyers
and other professions -- even as
some understand that, once the
time comes, they too will have to
work in the fields to support their
families.
Despite that, they come to
learn.
"I love them," said Mrs. Brown.
"They're respectful. They dream


itself?
Who knows?
What is certain is that there
will be plenty to see and plenty to
do, not to mention plenty to eat,
when the fair comes to town to-
morrow. The fair will also mark
the crowning of a new queen,
and will feature young men and
women who will be placing their
best livestock on display at the
fairgrounds in Clewiston.

The Schedule:
The gates officially open to-

Banyan Village water lines.
Property at 4795 and 4825
SR 80W was rezoned from resi-
dential/medium density mobile
home to Planned Unit Develop-
ment. It is to become a mixed-use
development.
The commissioners opened
the way for GreenTree South,
the agricultural worker housing
development on SR 29S, to ex-
pand by an additional 78 afford-
able housing units. The addition
will be on the south side of the

brought in bigger fish, McMillan's
three-day tally stood at the top,
with 57 pounds, 6 ounces.
Friday would also see another
local, Scott Martin, of Clewiston,
ease into the third-place posi-
tion, with a three-day tally of 53
pounds, 4 ounces.
Lunsford stayed in second,
with just a little more than 56
pounds.


Final Day
Day four belonged to McMillan,
who brought in 16 pounds, 14
ounces, to cinch the victory with
a four-day total of 74 pounds, 4
ounces.
Koby Kreiger, who tied with
McMillan on the first day, man-
aged the second place position,
with a four-day total of 61 pounds,
4 ounces; while Shin Fukae, of
Mineola, Texas, came in at third
with 59 pounds, 9 ounces.
Lunsford, who was hot on the
heels of McMillan for second posi-
tion, finished in sixth place; and
Scott Martin, finished in eighth
place.

and have big hurdles that they
face."
Mrs. Brown would be happy,
she is the first to say, especially
since she is doing what she has
always loved doing; especially
because her peers thought so
much about her humble work to
nominate her for the district's em-
ployee of the year award.
Those who nominated, or
those who later got to know Ms.
Brown have nothing but positive
things to say of her.
Her principal, Garry Ensor,
said Ms. Brown's ethic is charac-
terized by a willingness to do any-
thing that is asked of her.
"She's very dedicated. A hard
worker. She's just a great lady,"
Mr. Ensor said.
Susanne Jones, reading re-
source teacher, got to work with
Mrs. Brown on an almost daily
basis. Outside of work, the two
are members of the same church
and few have as keen of an insight
into Ms. Brown as Ms. Jones.
Ms. Jones sticks up for her
friend.
In this sense, she makes an im-
passioned plea in her defense.
"I don't know how to begin
to tell you how awesome she is,"
Ms. Jones said. "She's the best
friend anybody could have and
she has had an inestimable im-
pact for the good of the school. I
love her dearly."
Erlinda shuns the attention.
"This is not my own acco-
lade," she said. "I give all the
credit to the teachers. I'm just a
helper alongside them."
So why is a woman who has
demonstrated that she wants
nothing else but to serve her stu-
dents losing her job?


A difficult reality
"It's going to be hard," said
Mrs. Brown. "Feb. 13 is my last
day here."
In her classroom, Erlinda
thumbs through a scrapbook
with haphazard photos strewn
across its pages and recalls the
moments the photos depict on
their glossy paper.
"She was from Cuba," she
points with her finger. "He was
from Guatemala."
In their quieter moments, the
students ask what's going to hap-
pen to them.
For the first time since she
taught in her native country, she
has no answers for them.
She recalls the days of picking
tomato, and wonders whether
her driving through Clewiston
and seeing the middle school will
hurt as much.
"I'm going to be looking and
thinking of them," she said, fight-
ing back, as much as she can,
the tears that have formed on her

Organizers seem most excited
about that latest event -- the Bull
Bash Bonanza.
They promise some of the best
rodeo action you'll find, led by
"some rough-riding, hard-hitting,
bull-riding cowboys."


Reviving your love for that
significant other while watching
grown men avoid getting tram-
pled seems like the start of a per-
fect annual tradition.
Organizers are hoping for a
good number of festival-goers
this year.

face. "They are like my children."
What is interesting is that Ms.
Brown isn't alone in her troubles
-- she is one of many. Her story
differs in the external details, but
shares the singular bond with
dozens of others of a belt-tighten-
ing at the district that eludes any
other in recent memory.
Oftentimes, the faces are lost
in the numbers.
It is a litany of issues that are
costing Mrs. Brown and many
others their jobs, Rick Murphy,
superintendent explained.
Declining enrollment. Drop
in property values. Challenging
economic conditions. The uncer-
tainty of the area's main financial
engine. Everything has chipped
away at the overall outlook, he
said.
In the last two months alone,
the district has had the unenvi-
able task of shaving $2.5 million
off its budget. With salaries and
benefits making up 80 percent
of that amount, among the first
to go were paraprofessional ser-
vices such as those provided by
Mrs. Brown.
Out of 109 specialty services,
57 were cut, as well as several
teacher and administrative posi-
tions throughout the district.
Mr. Murphy, who is in charge
of making the necessary cuts, ad-
mits that the employee has done
plenty for the district, and doesn't
deserve to lose her job; but it re-
mains the reality of the situation.
"A lot of folks go beyond their
scope of duty. That's the big thing
we have to look at, admire and
appreciate."
Without the layoffs, Mr. Mur-
phy said the school district would
have had trouble paying the last
two months of employee payroll
this year -- a certain crisis.


Not quite the end
The way things are going, the
district may have to cut another
$2 million later this year. Even
as he conducted the interview
for this story, Mr. Murphy was in
Orlando with his financial officer,
developing a plan to address the
legislature.
He planned on participating
in a rally later this month, and
another in March, to "show that
there's a need for the legislature
to address our needs."
But it is not their fault, the su-
perintendent is careful to say.
"It's an ongoing saga, unfortu-
nately. There will be some chang-
es in the system, unfortunately, to
deal with surviving."
He makes his own case to the
residents.
"We only ask that parents, em-
ployees and taxpayers bare with
us, have compassion for us," the
superintendent said.


Meanwhile, Erlinda contem-
plates her next step.
On Tuesday, once classes had
let out for the day, she looked
through the possessions she
had laid out in her homeroom -
seemingly ready for the next day's
work.
"I'm supposed to be packing,
but I can't get myself to pack,"
she said with a smile.
