Investigators:
Suspect entered
mother's room,
stabbed man with
kitchen knife
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
MONTURA -- A day after, the
garage lights were still on. In
the backyard, the patio lamps
were on full blast in the midday
sun.
The only sound in this rural
area, where the home in ques-


tion is surrounded by just a few
neighbors to the rear and to the
side, was the sound of the wind
diffused in the trees.
There were no external clues
as to what deputies are saying
happened just a day before.
That's when a mother called
deputies to the home in Mon-
tura, reporting her 18-year-old
son entering her room and
stabbing a man to death while
he slept.
Though she attempted to
fight him off, and managed to
pry her son from the victim, the

Entire family
ejected from car,
with serious
injuries
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News

CLEWISTON -- A local fam-
ily is reeling following an acci-
dent that claimed the life of 43-
year-old Carmen Vazquez.


While driving into Clewis-
ton, just a few miles outside
her destination, Ms. Vazquez
was violently ejected from her
vehicle after making impact
with a second vehicle traveling
in the same direction.
Unfortunately, she wasn't
the only one in her vehicle who
was injured.

leased by the Florida Highway
Patrol, Roeri Marrero, 32, the

Local radio station switches to Spanish-only


Decline in business
forced move, CEO
explains
Robbie Castellanos, CEO of
Glades Media Company, an-
nounced that radio station
WAFC-FM / 99.5 has changed
programming format from Con-
temporary Country to Regional
Mexican; the format changed
took place Feb. 1.
He explained that the nation-
al economic recession coupled
with the local uncertainties as-
sociated with the sale of USSC


to South Florida Water Manage-
ment has seriously stifled local
economic growth, "Advertising
is our revenue stream and right
now advertising everywhere,
in all media, is in recession but
none any worse than here in the
Glades," he said.
Glades Media Company has
owned and operated WAFC-FM
since 1980; during the entire 28
years it has featured country mu-
sic and many other very popular
community programs.
Castellanos stated, "It has
been our greatest pleasure to
have served the Glades area for


all these years. I know we have
many loyal listeners who are
deeply disappointed. I can only
hope that they will understand
the circumstances surrounding
the change."
Castellanos went on to ex-
plain, "Every day the news is the
same, thousands of good people
laid off from work-that has not
happened to our companies, we
haven't laid off anyone and we
don't want to start. I need every
one of my employees to main-
tain our successful position."
He explained that Glades Me-


music stations in Okeechobee,
WOKC 1570 and FM 100.9.
Glades Media Company's pri-
mary business though is in His-
panic broadcasting where they
own / operate six stations broad-
casting a variety of Hispanic
programming, "That portion of
our business is fine with only a
reasonable decline in business,
we believe the move of WAFC-
FM / 99.5 to a Regional Mexican
format can only help our station
group to prosper during these
uncertain economic times."
The current economic condi-


dia also owns two other country tions have prompted this imme-


diate change, but change was al-
ready scheduled on the horizon.
Plans were in place for WAFC-
FM to be moved to Palm Beach
Gardens to become that com-
munity's first FM radio station.
The Federal Communications
Commission approved the city of
license change more than a year
ago but tower location issues de-
layed the move. Once the final
move is complete, WAFC-FM /
99.5 would become a Hispanic
station intended to strengthen
Glades' market influence into
the Latin community in the West

"Oh, my goodness. Wow,"
said a grateful Ms. Perez. "I
have to thank the Man up there
first because he has given me
the gift to teach. Every teacher
that was nominated here to-
night has to have that gift, the
gift to teach and the gift to love
children."
Esteban Candelario, a Fifth-
grader student at Eastside El-
ementary, spoke about his for-
mer teacher.


"Mrs. Perez is more than
your average teacher. She's
awesome," he said. "Mrs. Perez
is understanding and patient.
Before the day is over, you will
know your grammar and math.
If I could take her all the way
through college, I would.
"Thanks for always being
there to tell me I can do it," he
said.
"It really is an honor. I really
didn't think I was gonna be up
here," said Mrs. Perez. "I just
love what I do. Thank you very
much."

United Way launch


free tax preparation



services


Fort Myers, Fla. --- Consumer
Credit Counseling Service (CCCS)
and the United Way of Lee, Hen-
dry, and Glades have launched
free tax preparation services for
hard working people and their
families. The Volunteer Income
Tax Assistance program (VITA)
provides free and confidential fil-
ing of tax returns by IRS certified
volunteers starting in February
2009.
The services are targeted to
families with children earning
less than $42,000 and individu-
als with no qualifying children
earning less than $16,000 during
2008. Individuals and families will
be asked to provide the following
to the tax preparers at the time of
service:
Valid Social Security numbers
for taxpayer, spouse and qualify-
ing children
Correct birth dates for all fam-
ily members
All W-2 was and tax state-
ments for 2008
Form 1098-mortgage interest,
property taxes, Form 1099-DIVG,
INT, MISC, Q, R, RRB, SSA for
2008 if appropriate
Photo ID for signers (if filing
jointly, both filers must be present
to sign the return)
2007 tax return if available
Child care EIN number
Void check and/or savings ac-
count number for direct deposit
(optional)
By establishing the VITA sites
CCC and the United Way hope to
increase the number of residents
applying for and receiving Earned
Income Tax Credits (EITC) and
Child Tax Credits. Both credits are
federal tax benefits designed to


assist low and moderate income
workers in increasing their finan-
cial stability.
The Free Tax Preparation VITA
sites open in February and will
continue through April 15. The
locations for VITA tax assistance
are as follows:
Site locations: Cape Coral
United Way House
Dunbar United Way House
Harlem Heights United Way
House
Estero-San Carlos United Way
House
Lehigh Acres United Way
House
LaBelle United Way House
Appointments are required.
Dial United Way 2-1-1 or 239-433-
3900 to make an appointment
CCCS is a HUD approved Unit-
ed Way agency providing confi-
dential financial counseling, debt
management and housing educa-
tion workshops.
The United Way raises funds
for human service organizations
in our community and promotes
partnerships and collaborations
among agencies and initiatives,
helping them to work together
focusing on issues and solutions
that continue to improve lives.
United Way also has a helpline,
United Way 211, which refers
those in need to agencies in Lee,
Hendry, and Glades Counties.

It's all in the name: Is it safe to call it smokeless?


By Valarie L. James
Hendry/Glades Health Dept.
You don't smoke it. You don't
swallow it. All you do is slosh it
around your mouth and spit out
the brown juices every few sec-
onds. OK, so it actually is pretty
disgusting. But so what? After all,
it's called smokeless or chewing
tobacco. That means you chew
and spit it, not smoke it, so it can't
be as bad as inhaling tobacco
smoke into your lungs, right?
Wrong... unfortunately, smoke-
less doesn't mean harmless. The
fact is, chewing tobacco is every
bit as dangerous as smoking it.
What Is Smokeless Tobacco?
Smokeless tobacco, also called
spit tobacco, chewing tobacco,
chew, chaw, dip, plug, and prob-
ably a few other things, comes
in two forms: snuff and chewing
tobacco. Snuff is a fine-grain to-
bacco that often comes in teabag-
like pouches that users "pinch" or
"dip" between their lower lip and
gum. Chewing tobacco comes in
shredded, twisted, or "bricked"
tobacco leaves that users put
between their cheek and gum.
Whether its snuff or chewing to-
bacco, you're supposed to let it sit
in your mouth and suck on the to-
bacco juices, spitting often to get
rid of the saliva that builds up. This
sucking and chewing allows nico-
tine, which is a drug you can be-
come addicted to, to be absorbed
into the bloodstream through the


tissues in your mouth. You don't
even need to swallow.
Where Does It Come From?
In the United States, chewing to-
bacco has long been associated
with baseball. Players chewed
it to keep their mouths moist,
spit it into their gloves to soften
them up, and used it to make a
"spitball." By the 1950s, chew-
ing tobacco had fallen out of fa-
vor in most of America, instead
of chewing their tobacco, most
people were smoking it. But, in
the 1970s, people became more
aware of the dangers of smoking.
Thinking it was a safe alternative
to lighting up, baseball players
started chewing on their tobacco
again. These days, you don't find
the majority of professional ball-
players with wads of chaw in
their cheeks. But lots of guys and
girls, athletes or not, still find time
for chewing and spitting.
So What's the Danger? Just
like smoking cigarettes, chewing
smokeless tobacco can eventual-
ly rip apart your body and kill you.
It's that simple, really. There's no
such thing as a "safe" tobacco
product. Even one of the greatest
of all time, Babe Ruth, was fond of
dipping and chewing tobacco. He
died at age 52 of an oropharynge-
al tumor, which is a cancerous tu-
mor in the back part of the throat.
But, of course, it isn't just baseball
players who learn to regret their
choice to start chewing tobacco.
According to the CDC, each year


about 30,000 Americans learn
they have mouth and throat can-
cers, and nearly 8,000 die of these
diseases. Sadly, only about half of
people with diagnosed mouth or
throat cancer survive more than 5
years.
What can chewing tobacco do
to me?
Consequences of chewing and
spitting tobacco include:
cracking and bleeding lips
and gums
receding gums, which can
eventually make your teeth fall
out
increased heart rate, high
blood pressure, and irregular
heartbeats, all leading to a greater
risk of heart attacks and brain
damage (from a stroke)
cancer
Oral cancer means cancer of
the mouth and can happen in the
lips, the tongue, the floor of the
mouth, the roof of the mouth, the
cheeks, or gums. It's been medi-
cally proven that long-time use
of chewing tobacco can lead to
cancer. But cancer from chewing
tobacco doesn't just occur in the
mouth. Some of the cancer-caus-
ing agents in the tobacco can get
into the lining of your stomach,
your esophagus, and into your
bladder. If you're a dipper, put
some long thought into breaking
the habit and quitting now. When
you decide to quit, don't do it
alone. Tell friends or family and
enlist their support. Strategies for


breaking the habit include:
using a nicotine gum or a
patch (ask your doctor about
these options first)
planning ahead and using
substitutes such as tobacco-free,
mint-leaf snuff; sugarless gum;
hard candy; beef jerky; sunflower
seeds; shredded coconut; raisins;
or dried fruit
getting involved in healthier
activities: lifting weights, shooting
baskets, going for a swim, etc.
This year join us in celebrating
the Great American Spit Out on
Feb. 19 and the National Through
With Chew Week, Feb. 14-21,
which was established in 1989 by
the American Academy of Oto-
laryngology Head and Neck
Surgery, Inc. Through With Chew
Week (TWCW) is an educational
campaign to decrease spit tobac-
co use and increase awareness of
the negative health effects of us-
ing these products. It's tough to
quit, but realize that backsliding is
common, so don't give up. Your
chances of success increase with
each try! For help in quitting all to-
bacco products contact the Hen-
dry County Health Department

Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor;
We are writing this letter joint-
ly to share our concern about
the future of Hendry County's
children. As you and the commu-
nity well know, Hendry County
School District is laying off more
than 50 people who work di-
rectly with students. This was a
heart-wrenching decision that the
school board and superintendent
made; they fully realize not only
the impact on the children's lives,
but on the fragile economic state
of this county too.
These people have dedicated
themselves to helping students
achieve academic success and
better futures for themselves.
Not only will the instruction and


individual support be gone from
these children's lives, but also the
personal relationships that have
formed. Our young people at all
ages are vulnerable; they are feel-
ing the stress and strain of the
economic uncertainty in their per-
sonal lives. Now that uncertainty
has entered their classrooms.
Hendry County's children should
spend their school hours learn-
ing new skills, developing per-
sonal goals, forming friendships,
and having fun. They should not
have to wonder who will be there
for them in the future. For many
young people today, school is the
most stable, consistent thing in
their lives; that stability has been
ruptured.

Addiction recovery
help
Narconon reminds parents


that during the summer months,

dom set in and drugs and alcohol
can work into their lives. To help
your child this summer, learn to
recognize the signs of drug and
alcohol addiction and get the
help they need.

Stop the violence
services available
The Hendry and Glades Do-
mestic and Sexual Violence
Council's mission is to increase
community awareness about
domestic and sexual violence
and victim safety by providing
services, referrals and education
relating to the affects of domes-
tic/sexual violence in our com-
munity.
The meetings rotate between
LaBelle, Clewiston and Moore
Haven. To get involved in the
council or for information about
meeting dates and times, please
call Abuse Council and Treat-
ment, Inc.'s Rural Extension (RE-
ACT): 863-674-1811, 8:30 a.m.
until 5 p.m. to speak with an ad-
vocate.


Economics and financial
problems are considered adult
problems, but the problems are
being thrust onto our children
by the harsh decisions that have
to be made. We adults are sup-
posed to protect and fight for our
young people, our future. Educa-
tors alone cannot do this, parents
alone cannot do this; it must be
the entire community lifting its
united voice to tell our elected of-
ficials at both state and national
level to protect our children. Tell
them to protect our children by
protecting their educations, by
protecting the stability of their
classrooms.


The Governor has made the
comment that he has not seen
the protesters fighting the cuts to
education. The educators are pro-
testing, but they are doing what
they do best first-educating chil-
dren. Please help us in this fight to
protect our children.
Sincerely,
Debbie Steelman

tional Support Personnel As-

Valentine's Day-


- Place


Love" or ... Love?


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Valentine's Day a holiday
originated in an early Christian
Saint who went down in history
because of his selfless love for his
jailor's daughter.
His selfless outpouring left it's
mark on those around him, and
he is remembered for his loving
acts of kindness. History has cele-
brated what he showed long after
it seems to have forgotten him.
Someone once said "All the
world loves a lover" and we can
all identify with those who are in
love.
A recent researcher was inter-
viewed on TV and reported that
there are changes in brain chem-
istry among those who are "in
love" versus those who have not
found a soul mate. Maybe in the
future we will no longer see dar-
ing deeds as proof of love, just a
chemical analysis!
I don't think so! Scriptures
speak voluminously of love, The
ancient world had more than one
word for it; and described it as an
active, not static quality in many
cases. "Love" was a verb, a "do-
ing word" and meant action. I re-
member a widow telling me she
had a good marriage.
Her friends told me otherwise;
she had suffered disappointments
and hard times, but they added
that "Claire worked at it." Love
for her was an active thing, doing
what it took to hold the relation-
ship together, knowing how to
give space and knowing how to
become one, forgiving and look-
ing for good where others might
not have seen it.
She had a love big enough to
understand human strength and
failing, knowing that the sacri-
fice was worth it, knowing that
she could see what God saw in
another even when nobody else
saw it, knowing it was worth it.
I reflected that her husband cer-
tainly had a treasure and I hoped
he cherished it.
She had blessed another by
loving and in return knew love,
There was nothing about being
passive or expecting only to be
loved or in not going the second
mile, searching how to be bet-


ter in loving, knowing that two
imperfect human beings have to
work at a perfect love if it is to
happen.
It is knowing that others aren't
there to meet all of our needs,
that we may have to give more
than we will receive, but it will be
worth it.
Among the most famous Bib-
lical reflections on love comes
Saint Paul's Hymn to Charity (or
Love) as found in his first epistle
to the Corinthians, Chapter 13.
It is about the priority of having
love in one's life, about what love
can accomplish, about what not
to expect, and about the great-
ness of love.
He does not say "Love will not
come to an end" or that "You will
live happily ever after" but that
your impact on others will be felt
no matter what happens when
you love them; that is a gift to give
and a source of real joy.
The first epistle of Saint John,
Chapter 3, verse 13 through
Chapter 4, speaks of love and the
admonition to "love one another.'
John includes that "there is no
fear in love; perfect love casts out
fear (4:18)", saying in a sentence
that as we grow in love and be-
come more intimate and trusting,
we are healed and strengthened.
Our openness and vulner-
ability bring forth the gift of being
one's true self and being loved for
who we really are; risking and be-
ing rewarded for it.
Vulnerability can make pos-
sible true acceptance and over-
come shortcomings that make us
feel limited. That's what love, real
love, can do. It's when another
can give us a vision of what God
must see and what His love is all
about, too.
That love is ours when we
seek it from God, when we share
it with someone who gives us a
chance to see a little of what God
sees, healing, restoring, forgiving,
hoping, accepting, comforting,
making us whole, in His image.
Valentine was really onto some-
thing! He deserves to be remem-
bered and we need to celebrate,
actively, that greatest of gifts God
has given to us.

Count for Fun, Count
for the Future
Bird and nature fans through-
out North America are invited to
join tens of thousands of every-
day bird watchers for the 12th an-
nual Great Backyard Bird Count
(GBBC), Feb. 13-16, 2009.
Last year Clewiston reported
the most birds in Florida and was
fifth in the U.S. for the most birds
reported with only 29 checklists.
They reported 121 Species and
143,748 birds. Labelle submitted
23 checklists and Okeechobee 14
lists. A joint project of the Cornell
Lab of Ornithology and the Na-
tional Audubon Society, this free
event is an opportunity for fami-
lies, students, and people of all
ages to discover the wonders of
nature in backyards, schoolyards,
and local parks, and, at the same
time, make an important contri-
bution to conservation.
Participants count birds and
report their sightings online at
www.birdcount.org.
Anyone can take part, from
novice bird watchers to experts,
by counting birds for as little as 15
minutes (or as long as they wish)
on one or more days of the event
and reporting their sightings on-
line at www.birdcount.org.
Participants can also explore
what birds others are finding in
their backyards-whether in their
own neighborhood or thousands
of miles away. Additional online
resources include tips to help
identify birds, a photo gallery, and
special materials for educators.
The data these "citizen scien-
tists" collect helps researchers un-
derstand bird population trends,
information that is critical for ef-
fective conservation.
Their efforts enable everyone
to see what would otherwise be
impossible: a comprehensive

Missing You
It's been a year since you've been gone,
it hasn't been very easy,
Especially when I hear your song,
I still often wonder, what happened that fateful night,
IWhat were you thinking, did you know the end was in sight'
Did God come to you and say it was your time'
lAnd there you stood at the pearly gates in line,
Looking down at us all in tears,
And you wanted to conic and calm all our fears,
For now your in a place so beautiful, so clean,
A place where God can be seen,
I never thought this would happen in a million years,
You cone to nIe iic n ly dreams at night,
And when I awake, there are always tears,
What would I do, If I could only hold you tight,
And to again hear your laughter,
Until we meet again, in life ever after,
We Love and Miss You Lots,
Family & Friends

Area teams impress on Signing Day


Overall, 23 high

school recruits from

four schools sign

their commitments

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION Na-
tional Signing Day was nothing
short of spectacular on Wednes-
day, Feb 4.
A total of 23 area high school
football players signed their let-
ters of intent to colleges across
the nation.
Over in Clewiston, just one
senior participated in Super
Wednesday, but it wasn't just
anyone.
It was Darris Hughes, who
signed with Georgia State Univer-
sity last week.
The decision made by Hughes
was quite interesting, given the
fact that the school, located in
Atlanta, will not be fielding a foot-
ball team until the 2010 season.
Nonetheless, Georgia State
may very well have started a pipe-
line to this area, with the addition
of Glades Day's Bo Schlecter, one
of five Gators who made written
commitments, and Glades Cen-
tral's Robert Ferguson.
The Panthers are not the only
team that had multiple signees
from the area, as Michigan and

the last minute that FAU never
even gave him an offer.
Though it may have been
frustrating for the cornerback, he
accepted an offer from Eastern
Michigan and signed there.
Nu'Keese Richardson, who
was the subject of a series of


the 'next Percy Harvin' at Florida.
Harvin, who's set to be drafted
by the NFL in April, was widely
considered as the best college

season after helping Florida win
a national championship last
month.
Overall, it was one of the most
memorable moments in recent

Hampton University picked up
two apiece.
Pahokee's outside linebacker,
Brandin Hawthorne, as well as
his teammate, running back Vin-
cent Smith, enrolled at Michigan
last month.
Both standouts put their writ-
ten commitments on the dot-
ted line in Ann Arbor, Mich. last
week.
Hampton (Va.) picked up two
Glades Central standouts in run-
ning back Antonio McCloude
and offensive lineman Vincent
Harper.
Alabama State University was
slated to pick up two area athletes
as well, but Pahokee center Jac-
quan Bentley is the only one who
signed there.
Glades Central's James
Melton, for reasons unspecified at
this time, was not one of the 10
Raiders players who took part in
the National Signing Day festivi-
ties, held at Glades Central's high
school auditorium.
The Atlantic Coastal Confer-
ence (ACC) picked up two star
athletes from the area, as Glades
Central offensive lineman Henry
Orelus, a rivals.com four-star
prospect, is officially a Florida
State Seminole.
Pahokee cornerback Jarvis
Byrd, a four-star prospect and the
rivals.com No. 41 overall player in
the state, signed with N.C. State.
Byrd received more than a
dozen offers, including Wake For-
est and Florida Atlantic University
(FAU).

area athletes signed last week:
"With all those signing, I think
it's safe to say that the Muck is the

The Clewiston Lady Tigers make history


History was made on Friday,
Jan. 16 as the first soccer game
ever was played out on Cane
Field.
The bright stadium lights
shined down on the newly lined
field, as the Clewiston High School
Girls Soccer Team approached
a field that was familiar to them
only as a place to cheer on oth-
ers, but never a place to cheer on
themselves... until now!
This was the first time these
girls would ever get to experience
the rush of playing on the memo-
rialized Cane Field, where they

could play with true tiger pride.
For some of the girls it would
be their first and last, regular sea-
son game, that they would ever
play on Cane Field.
Nine girls were represented
as they walked the center line of
the field, as they were escorted by
their family members, through a
tunnel of teammates.
The loud sound system shared
their future plans, favorite memo-
ries, and last words to their team-
mates, as they unsuccessfully
tried to hold back their laughter
and tears.

Everyone gave a great effort,
and the event helped the CES


This will be the second and
largest group of seniors that the
CHS Girls Soccer team has ever
graduated, with six of the girls
who played all four years on the
varsity team.
The field looked as if it was
meant for soccer games to be
played on, as the seniors and their
teammates stood with their arms
connecting as the Star Spangled
Banner echoed across the field.
As the "Home of the Brave"
concluded the girls rushed to the
sideline to prepare to take on their
Senior Night rivals, Glades Day.

Glades Day started on strong,
scoring the first ever goal on Cane
Field, but the tigers answered
back quickly with a goal to tie the
game.
It looked to be a tight match at
halftime as the Lady Tigers only
led to the Gators 3-1.
As the girls shook of their Cane
Field jitters they made their come-
back known with three more
goals to finish the game 6-1.

Okeechobee County jail escapee sought


Man may be hiding
with acquaintances
in Clewiston

By Eric Kopp
INI Florida
The search is continuing for
an inmate at the Okeechobee
County Jail who was successful
on his second attempt to escape
his confines.
It is believed that Alejandro
Perez, 45, has fled the area and is
hiding in Miami, although he also
has ties to Clewiston.
He escaped from what is de-
scribed as a 4-foot-by-8-foot out-
doors individual recreation pod.
Perez was supposed to be
under special watch since his at-
tempted escape in January.
"He was classified as high risk
and was a close management in-
mate," said Major Noel Stephen
of the Okeechobee County Sher-
iff's Office (OCSO).
"His movement about the jail
was different than the general
population."
Perez escaped around 2:21
p.m. Friday, Feb. 6, while in the
jail's outdoor exercise yard.
The OCSO major said Perez is
not considered violent.
"I don't think there's any vio-
lent history in his past," Maj. Ste-
phen explained.
Perez was arrested Dec. 16,


2008, on charges of burglary,
grand theft and possession of bur-
glary tools.
His bond was set at $46,000.
Then, on Jan. 1, 2009, he tried
to escape from the county jail by
breaking out a window.
He was subsequently charged
with attempted escape and felony
criminal mischief.
His bond on those charges
was set at $15,000.
Records indicate that Perez
was scheduled to appear in cir-
cuit court Wednesday, Feb. 11,
at 9 a.m. on the January 2009
charges.
Maj. Stephen went on to say
the man's jail-issued orange jump-
suit was found in close proximity
to the jail and he suspects Perez
had help.
When Perez was taken to the
outdoors pod Maj. Stephen said
he would have been in handcuffs
and shackles, but the restraints
would have been removed once
he reached the pod.
Sometime after the restraints
were removed, Perez made his
escape.
A criminal investigation is un-
der way, as well as an administra-
tive probe as to how Perez was
able to escape.
Maj. Stephen said as far as he
knows Perez is the first inmate to
escape from the county jail.
As the county's top law en-
forcement official, Sheriff Paul


May said he is taking responsibil-
ity for the escape.
"A lot of things go right at your
sheriff's office and when they do
I, as your sheriff, get the credit.
With the escape of this inmate,
something has gone wrong and I,
as your sheriff, take full responsi-
bility for this incident," he said in
a prepared statement.
The sheriff said Jail Adminis-
trator Ronnie White and his staff
are reviewing the jail's security
system, with particular attention
being paid to those times when
inmates are in the outdoors rec-
reation yard.
"A thorough investigation of
the escape in under way, and
inmate Perez is being sought na-
tionwide," the sheriff added.
"I regret this incident occurred
and I will assure you that every-
thing within my power will be
done to see that this does not
happen again."
Maj. Stephen said no one was
injured during the escape.
Perez, who listed a local ad-
dress of N.W. 112th Terrace, was
arrested in December of 2008 after
he reportedly broke into a home
on Eagle Bay Drive and took an
estimated $1,200 in jewelry.
He apparently gained entry
into the home by prying open a
window at the back of the house,
said OCSO Detective Rick Durfee.
Not long after he allegedly en-
tered the home, the young couple


who live there returned home to
eat lunch.
The detective said as they en-
tered through a back door, Perez
left via the front door.
Shortly after sitting down to
eat lunch they discovered their
bedroom had been ransacked
and some jewelry was missing,
the detective explained.
Perez was arrested a short time
later while hiding behind some
homes across the street from the
home he had just burglarized,
said Detective Durfee.
The detective said a bag con-
taining a hammer was found
in the area as well as a pair of
gloves.
Friday's escape is under crimi-
nal investigation with OCSO De-
tective Sergeant Brad Stark being
the lead investigator.
If anyone has any information
about the escape or the where-
abouts of Perez they should con-
tact Sgt. Stark at the Okeechobee
County Sheriff's Office, 863-763-
3117.


in games, they seemed to have
learned to share this common re-
sponsibility across the field.
From offense to defense they
pushed each other to work harder
after the other team scores first.
They have gained the desire to
focus on scoring and winning as a
team instead of as individuals.
Hopefully these will be some
of the qualities that will extend
their play on Cane Field for years
to come.

New members welcomed into amateur radio community


By Samuel S. Thomas,
W3ALE, PIO, Big Lake
Radio Club
On Saturday, Jan. 10, five can-
didates for amateur radio licenses
were tested and passed their ex-
aminations.
Radio transmission requires
licensor and is regulated by the
federal government as part of in-
ternational treaties controlling the
radio waves.
Because unauthorized trans-
missions can cause serious


problems with vital navigation
and communication functions, a
license is required for each trans-
mitting station that is "on the air"
including amateur stations.
For approximatelytwo months,
Thom street, N5KFR, conducted a
course in Moore Haven for poten-
tial radio amateurs. The course
provided training in basic elec-
tronics, communications theory
and the federal laws governing
radio operations.
At the completion of the
course, candidates were tested,


taking a thirty-five question mul-
tiple choice examination and be-
ing certified as having "passed."
Their test materials and applica-
tions for a radio license were then
passed on to the American Ra-
dio Relay Leagues, that provides
course materials, tests and certifi-
cations of successful completion
for those who succeeded.
In turn, the applications and
certifications are passed on to the
Federal Communications Com-
mission for the issuance of a radio
license and call letters for each


licensee and station. Regulations
require that at least three licensed
radio amateurs, who are certified
as "Volunteer Examiners" admin-
ister and check the examinations.
Those involved in the testing ,
along with Thom Street, N5KFR,
who taught the course, were Sam
Thomas, W3ALE of Clewiston,
and Harold Hilliard, WB4TOV of
Okeechobee. Examiners take a
separate course to be certified as
capable of giving the tests and at-
testing to the competence of the
examinees.


All three Volunteer Examiners
hold the Amateur Extra class of
radio license; the highest of those
currently offered by the F. C. C.
In addition to the "Technician"
or first license, there is also an
intermediate or "General class
license available. Each class con-
fers certain operating frequencies
to license holders and allows for
different modes of transmission,
including voice communications,
code transmissions, amateur tele-
vision, satellite communications;
and allowing contacts with other


amateurs around the world and
with our astronauts in space.
The course and examinations
will be offered once again in the
near future.
For further information, con-
tact Thom Street, N5KFR in Moore
Haven at 863-946-1348. Radio
amateur licenses are available to
all persons regardless of age and
with or without any technical
background.


These are the two destinies of mankind


- Heaven or Hell


By Jackie Miller

There are only one of two
places in eternity that we can
go: Heaven or Hell. Each one of
us will be placed in one of these
two places on judgment day to be
there forever and ever.
Our Lord is speaking of eter-
nity in Matthew 25:46 says, "And
these will go away into everlast-
ing punishment, but the righteous
into eternal life." Notice that the
duration of the lost in Hell is ex-
actly the same as the duration of
the saved in Heaven, "forever and
ever." It is hard for us mortals to
grasp how long eternity will be,
but after we have been there bil-
lions of years, eternity will have


just begun.
We do not like to think about
eternal punishment. Let us con-
sider what the Lord says about
eternal punishment and then we
will turn our attention to a more
pleasant thought, Heaven. Our
Lord in describing how horrible
that Hell will be for the many
who will end up going there,
says in Matthew 13:42 "And will
cast them into the furnace of fire.
There will be wailing and gnash-
ing of teeth." This definitely will
be a horrible and terrible place
beyond description. Jesus says
in Mark 9:45-46 concerning those
who are lost, that they will be
"cast into Hell, into the fire that
shall never be quenched: where
their worm does not die, and the
fire is not quenched." There will
be no reprieve or appeal to a high-


er court, because we are being
judged by the highest. The Lord
is trying to get our attention and
give us fair warning. He is plead-
ing with us not to go there, but
we make the choice. The choice
is ours. We will bear the responsi-
bility and the consequences.
In Luke 16:24 Jesus is describ-
ing a man who went to Hell and
is pleading, "Then he cried and
said, Father Abraham, have mercy
on me, and send Lazarus that he
may dip the tip of his finger in wa-
ter and cool my tongue, for I am
tormented in this flame."
How much relief, and how
long would a drop of water last
on the tongue of those who
are being tormented forever? It
would not last even one second.
We must wake up and heed our
Lord's warning!


The many who end up in eter-
nal punishment will not be there
alone. They will have company.
Revelation 20:10, "The devil, who
deceived them was cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone where
the beast and the false prophet
are. And they will be tormented
day and night forever and ever."
Not very goo company to be in.
Notice that the torment goes on
"day and night forever and ever."
There are many people who
scoff at the idea of eternal pun-
ishment, but they are scoffing at
what God says. The fire will burn
forever and those who are lost will
be there in it for eternity whether
they want to believe it or not. In
eternity their scoffing will quickly
change to weeping and wailing
and gnashing of teeth. We must
take what the Lord says in the


Bible seriously. Hell is real! There
is not way for the horrors of Hell
to be adequately described in hu-
man language. Many people do
not realize the danger of eternally
losing their souls. This is very seri-
ous!
In Hell there will be billions
of people crying out in indescrib-
able pain and agony for which
there will be no relief or hope that
things will ever get better. There
will be haunting memories of all
the opportunities of salvation that
were passed up. Eternity is forever
and has no end. There will be no
opportunity for second chances.
We read in Revelation 14:11,
"And the smoke of their torment
ascends forever and ever, and
they have no rest day or night.
But reading further we see in Rev-
elation 20:15, "And anyone not


found written in the Book of life
was cast into the lake of fire." It
is imperative that our name be
found in the Book of Life. Is you
name in that Book? Do you know
for sure, or are you making an as-
sumption? It will be too late on
the Day of Judgment to find out
that it is not there.
To have your name written in
the Book of Life, you must be-
lieve the Gospel that Jesus died
for your sins, was buried and
arose again from the dead. Then
you must repent of sins, confess
faith in Christ before men, be im-
mersed in water for the remission
of sins to receive the Holy Spirit,
and be faithful to Christ through
His Church. Next week I will take
a look at what the Bible says about
the destination of the saved.


Train a child in the way he should go, he will not turn from it


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In honor of the recent bass
tournament and fisherman fa-
thers everywhere, I would like to
share this story.
On the day before bass sea-
son opened in New York, a boy
and his father were fishing early
in the evening, catching sunfish
and perch with worms. Then
the boy tied on a small silver lure
and practiced casting. The lure
struck the water and caused sil-

very ripples in the moonlight. On
the third cast, his pole suddenly
doubled over, and the boy yelled
with excitement with the expec-
tation of something big on the
other end.
And big it was. His father
watched with admiration as the
boy skillfully worked the fish
alongside the dock. Finally the
boy lifted the exhausted fish from
the water. It was the largest one
he had ever seen, but it was a
bass.


The cost of the dinner and ad-
mission to the movie is free. This
event is open to everyone. If pos-

The boy and his father looked
at the trophy fish, gills playing
back and forth in the moonlight.
The father lit a match and looked
at his watch. It was 10 p.m. -- two
hours before the season opened.
He looked at the fish, then at the
boy. "You'll have to put it back,
son," he said.
"Dad!" cried the boy. "There
will be other fish," said his father.
"Not as big as this one," cried the
boy. He looked around the lake.
No other fishermen or boats were

ther.
Even though no one had seen
them, nor could anyone ever
know what time he caught the
fish, the boy could tell by the clar-
ity of his father's voice that the
decision was not negotiable. He
slowly worked the hook out of the
lip of the huge bass, and lowered
it into the black water. The fish
swished its tail and disappeared.

That was over 34 years ago. To-
day the boy is a successful archi-
tect in New York City. His father's
cabin is still there on the lake. He
takes his own son and daughters
fishing from the same dock.
And he was right. He has never
again caught such a magnificent
fish as the one he landed that
night long ago. But he does see
that same fish again and again
every time he comes up against a
question of ethics. For, as his fa-

matters of right and wrong. It is
only the practice of ethics that is
difficult.

the state teacher of the year pro-
gram held in Orlando.

The rest of this year's teachers
of the year, and their most memo-
rable accomplishment teaching:


Wendy Anderson, La-
Belle Middle
My most memorable accom-
plishment to teaching occurred
Feb. 3, 1998. I1 had written a song
in October of 1996 about the
community in which I lived. This
song was written for the Third-
graders at Chandler Elementary
School in an effort to enhance the
curriculum my colleagues and
I were creating about our com-
munity. About fifty then-Fourth-
grade students attended a meet-
ing with Mayor Allan Kauffman
and the city council of Goshen,
Ind. They sang the song, "Land
of Goshen," to parents, council
members, community members
and the media. Council members
passed a resolution written by
Mayor Kauffman to adopt "Land
of Goshen" as the song of the city.
Students learned valuable lessons
about government, as well as
about their community through
this amazing experience.


Cathy Burchard, La-
Belle Elementary
Teaching is a career in which
dedicated professionals strive to
meet the individual educational
needs of each and every student,
which demands time, profession-
alism and dedication. Each year, I
have such a diverse group of chil-



Murder
Continued From Page 1

39-year-old man was pronounced
dead at the scene.
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
investigators are working to piece
together the stabbing.
Presently, very few details are
being released about the crime.
Since it remains under investiga-
tion, officials are being careful
with their information as to not
jeopardize the case.
What is known is that Gary
Don Warden, the mother's live-
in boyfriend, according to inves-
tigators, died from the multiple
wounds he suffered to his back.
Angela Tiger, the suspect's
mother, called police at some
time after 2 a.m. on Feb. 8.
Tiger told officers she had
been awoken by the bed moving
and said it appeared her son was
punching Warden.
"What are you doing? Stop
it," she reportedly told him, be-
fore pushing the suspect out of
the bedroom and into the living
room.
When she called for Warden,
she heard no response.
The commotion also woke Ti-
ger's daughter and her daughter's
boyfriend.

driver, along with three other
passengers, 18-year-old Yonel
Concepcion, 11-year-old Lynette
Concepcion, and 5-year-old Calos
Marrero were also thrown from
the vehicle.
The accident happened just
after midnight, on Monday, a few
miles east of Clewiston.
Investigators say Marrero was

dren entering my classroom, and
it is my goal to help them achieve
their highest personal level of po-
tential with success. Setting high
standards for my children and
seeing them achieve those goals
is very rewarding. It is always
amazing to me to see how much
they grow academically and so-
cially in year's time. The look on
a child's face after realizing they
are reading for the first time is
priceless. Although your students
move on, you always feel a part
of their academic success. In the
end, I would have to say my most
memorable accomplishment to
teaching is touching so many lives
through my years of experience.
This realization comes when for-
mer students return to express
to me that I made a difference
in their life. After all, that is what
teaching is all about -- the impact
we have on our students.


B.J. Fricke, Westside
Elementary
It is a memorable accomplish-
ment for me when I see a child
excited about learning. When a
child brings me a book to read
or gives me a hug, I smile. When
a child wants to share an experi-
ence or associates a certain activ-
ity, song or game with me, I feel
blessed. I guess that makes every-
day a memorable experience.


Melanie Holt, Upthe-
grove Elementary
As a Third-grade teacher, one
of the biggest pressures is the
FCAT test. We prepare all year
and pray that I have given my stu-
dents the tools to be successful.
Last year, 2007-2008, when the
scores came in, every student in
my class had scored the required


Officials responding to the call
found Damon Pewo, the suspect,
sitting on the armrest of a couch,
holding a large, stainless steel
kitchen knife. Pewo had also suf-
fered lacerations during the con-
frontation -- when, according to
investigators, the blade from the
knife bent in half during the stab-
bing.
In their report of the incident,
investigators detail seeing blood
on the floor and the wall of the
living room. On the victim him-
self, the investigators noted an
approximately one-inch long lac-
eration to the chest.
While in detention at the
Clewiston sub-office, Pewo was
interviewed.
According to the report, "Pewo
advised that he had stabbed War-
den while he was sleeping be-
cause he believed that Warden
was talking about him."
The suspect reportedly told
officers he had been ridiculed re-
peatedly and "was upset by the
victim's alleged verbal abuse,"
and struck the victim twice in the
back, after having pushed him
onto his face to prepare the at-
tack.
Pewo remains in jail on the ho-
micide charge.
The case shocked neighbors,
many still unaware about what
had happened.

traveling west into Clewiston in a
2003 Ford SUV when he and the
driver of a 2009 Toyota four-door
impacted each other on the road.
Following the same path, the
vehicles sideswiped one another
and lost control.
The Ford traveled into the me-
dian, where it struck traffic con-
trol signs and overturned. The
Toyota rotated counter clockwise,
though the two occupants of that
vehicle suffered only minor inju-
ries. Dipankar Biswas, 34, and

passing level of 2 or higher! I will
certainly remember that for a very
long time. I was ecstatic!


Harriett Rice, Clewis-
ton High
The great American stage ac-
tress Helen Hayes once said that,
"If I rest, I rust," and I can't think of
any better way to describe myself.
It isn't what I do for students that
is important, rather it is what we
gain from being with each other.
They keep me on my toes, always
learning, always asking the tough
questions, always wanting more
from the brim and overflowing
with questions, demands, inter-
rogations, please, jokes, and
all manner of foibles, signs and
symbols. For example, I have a
big-colored sign over my desk
that says, "This is a risk-taking,
mistake-making classroom," and
another in front that says, "What
you practice is what you will do!"
To begin every class, I share a
thought, joke, cartoon, work of
art, or profound statement, and
we practice thinking and writing
in our journals. I end our year
together with this thought, my
favorite quote: "Do not go where
the path may lead, go instead
where there is no path and leave
a trail." -- Ralph Waldo Emerson.
At graduation when we say our
tearful farewells, I go away feeling
proud that I have helped them to
discovery ways to mark their own
trails. We leave one another hav-
ing enriched each other's lives.


Karen Richardson,
Central Elementary
My greatest accomplishment
was when I taught Third-grade.
One of my students was a repeat-
ing Third-grader due to receiving


On Monday, a neighbor tended
to his garden and was surprised
to hear what had happened. The
dogs were unusually loud Sunday
morning, while it was still dark,
and he woke to see police search-
ing in the clearing nearby.
But that's all he knew. He said
he didn't notice anything out of
the ordinary in the hours leading
up to the scene.
According to him, the house is
usually occupied by the woman
and her son, but mostly by the
son, who would come home
from school and ride his bike
around the area. Outside of say-
ing hello to a girl, he also kept to
himself, the man said.
"They didn't talk to anybody,"
he said of the people in the
home.
Taking a look at a picture of
the alleged suspect, the man said
he looked a lot like the boy.
Three homes around the crime
scene were vacant on Monday.
Another neighbor further
down the street found out about
the crime the next day.
"When I came here in 1980, I
knew everyone," the man in dark
glasses, who owns the trailer
home at the street's intersection,
said. "And today, I don't know
anyone."

Pampa Biswas, 28, both of India,
were treated at Hendry Regional
Medical Center in Clewiston. Both
were wearing their seatbelts.
Lynette and Yonel Concep-
cion were transported to Delray
Regional, while Roeri and Calos
Marrero were taken to St. Mary's
Hospital in West Palm Beach.
According to officials, no one
in the car was wearing a seatbelt
at the time of the accident.
Charges are pending in the
case.

He was a special needs student
and only knew basic sight words.
Through his strong desire and my
guidance, he received a 2 that year

can see how his self-esteem has
grown and he continues to make
progress.


Jose Roquett, Clewis-
ton Middle
In only my second year of
teaching advanced placement
(AP) government, more than 70
percent of my students passed
the AP exam, while the state av-
erage passing rate remained at
about 50 percent. Last year, in
my third year of teaching Eighth-
grade math, 85 percent of my
students made learning gains as
defined by the state; This, on top
of similar gains they've made the
previous year.


Tony Smith, Country
Oaks Elementary
My most memorable accom-
plishment is beginning the Inclu-
sion program (along with Kim
Fiore) not only in Hendry County,
but in all of Southwest Florida.
This program, which brings ex-
ceptional education students in
the general education classroom,
shows that every child can learn
if we can find a way to reach
and teach them in a method that
makes sense to them.


Dave Tippett, LaBelle
High

ments as a teacher have not taken
place in the classroom. My fond-
est memories are those of former

students who have approached
me while I have been out in the
community. It is very reward-
ing when being approached by
former students and told how I
have impacted their live. A glow-

thanks -- those are the moments
that mean the most to me.
