County debates lease renewal


Reduction in
operating dollars
forces tough
decisions

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- A discussion
on the subject of a lease renewal
assumed much larger dimen-
sions when the conversation
shifted to the state of the county,
and the financial challenges it


faces in the next year.
Along with dealing with the
issue of where to locate several
important offices, the county
is also tackling the possibility
that there may be a reduction
in some services, and even of
staff should the financial climate
continue the way it has in recent
months.
At the onset, commissioners
considered renewing the leases
of several offices at the Clewis-
ton Towne Center (formerly the
K-Mart Plaza) in Clewiston. The
plaza has housed the sheriff's of-


fice, clerk, tax collector, property
appraiser and the supervisor of
elections, but is up for renewal.
The clerk and the property
appraiser have given commit-
ments to the county attorney to
move out of their offices at the
plaza and into a satellite office
on El Paso. It is expected that the
supervisor of elections will do
the same.
With three out of the five leav
ing, the county attorney said the
landlord decided to increase rent
for the sheriff's office, and has
asked the tax collector's office


to pay for providing a public re-
stroom -- which would be an ad-
ditional charge for the county.
Commissioners did not ap-
preciate the terms.
"With all of the rental spaces
that are available in Clewiston,
you would certainly expect that
we would be able to get some
leases that are favorable," argued
Commissioner Tris Chapman. "I
think we draw a line in the sand
here."
The discussion brought back
the issue of rehabilitating the
Clewiston sub-office and moving


a number of the constitutional
officers to that location.
"Does anybody not notice
the irony here?" asked Commis-
sioner Karson Turner. "We're
renting and spending $169,000
a year and we have an 8,750
square foot structure, ready to
be refurbished, and we're not
gonna do anything with it?"
Commissioner Turner said the
county's money is better spent
on addressing the code issues
at the sub-office. He expressed

Miami suspect
arrested after telling
deputies he did not
need their help

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- After shooting
a friend of his and losing control
of his vehicle and it teetering on a
highway railing, police say a sus-
pect continued to lose his cool and
acted violently when they attempt-
ed to help the injured friend.
The incident happened Sun-
day, Feb. 22, at just after 2 p.m. in
Clewiston, according to a report
released by the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office.
Deputies responding to a possi-
ble traffic crash call via 911 found
two men sitting on the railing just
beside the crashed utility vehicle.
Yuniel Llufrio, 22, of Miami,
identified himself as the driver of
the vehicle and told deputies that
he had lost control of the vehicle
for "no apparent reason." The im-
pact hurled the car into the railing,
where it remained stuck.
According to the report, Llufrio
said a towing company had been
called and the two needed no ad-
ditional help.
Walking toward the vehicle,
Deputy Julio Perez spotted a third
person, lying in the front passenger
seat. The man, Angel Llanes, 18,
of Miami, was incoherent and told

Man may have shot
women and himself
By Jose Jesus
Zaragoza
Clewiston News
LABELLE -- Investigators
want to know why a normally
reserved, quiet LaBelle man
would, based on what they
know, possibly shoot two
women and then himself in
a gruesome crime last Friday
night.
The shooting left all three
involved dead: 44-year-old Gil-
berto Fernandez -- identified as
the alleged shooter -- 32-year-
old Madai Rodriguez and 26-
year-old Maria Perez.
The incident in LaBelle has
left neighbors stunned, won-
dering how the long-time Cit-
rus Ave. resident could have
been involved in what officials
are calling a double shooting/
suicide.
In a press release prepared


by the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office, Lt. Susan Harrelle re-
ported officers responding to a
possible shots fired call at 963
Citrus Ave., shortly after 8 p.m.
on Feb. 20.
Deputies found three per-
sons inside the mobile home
with gunshot wounds. Emer-
gency Response workers de-
termined two of them were
dead, while a third was in seri-
ous condition.
Maria Perez, was still alive
when she was airlifted to Lee
Memorial Hospital for treat-
ment of her injuries. Accord-
ing to the sheriff's office, a few
days later, Maria died.
Both victims were report-
edly from Lehigh Acres.
Law enforcement officials
have released very little infor-
mation regarding the case or
the reason for the shooting.
"There's nothing else I can
say, except that at this time we
are waiting for autopsy results,"
said Lt. Harrelle.


A routine check of the sus-
pect's criminal record with
sheriff's office revealed only a
single arrest in 2000 for driving
under the influence of alcohol,
Lt. Harrelle reported.
Meanwhile, Gilberto Fer-
nandez's neighbors expressed
shock.
On Monday, the home was
vacant, with little sign of the
man's wife or his son, neigh-
bors said. The door to the
porch was locked, and an A&E
repair van, a car and a small
pick up truck were parked in
the driveway.
"All I know is that they were
very quiet," said a next-door
neighbor in Spanish. "It was
all a surprise." The ten-year
resident of the neighborhood
said the suspect and his family
moved in shortly after she did,
but were always a tranquil fam-
ily. They kept to themselves,
she said.
The suspect would oc-
casionally talk to a neighbor


across the road, she said, but
rarely to anyone else.
Jorge Cruz, another of the
suspect's neighbors, agreed.
"Mostly, he was very re-
served," said Mr. Cruz. "He
hardly talked to anyone. He
was very distanced from ev-
eryone else. He was quiet and
didn't like to talk to anyone."
The neighbor said he didn't
see or hear anything when the
shooting was reported. He was
asleep and woke to see patrol
cars and ambulances arriving
in droves. He saw emergency
workers remove one of the vic-
tims on a stretcher.
He said he didn't know the
victims, but said the crime had
become the talk of the neigh-
borhood.
"People say the women
sold Herbalife products. Well,
that's what the people are say-
ing, anyway."

New tattoo shop on bond street


Services offered
include piercing,
permanent make up

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Of the vari-
ety of businesses located in and
around Hendry County, Adrian
Aguilar noticed the vacuum
created by one: a tattoo shop.
There are no tattoo shops in
Clewiston -- a fact he set out to
remedy.
The experienced tattoo artist
teamed up with Jessica Alvarez,
who loved the idea, and now
they operate Serenity Tattoos


on Bond Street in Clewiston.
"It was A.D.'s (Adrian's)
dream, and we made it come
true," said Hector Perez, who
helps to manage the shop. "He
wanted to do this in town."
According to Hector Perez,
finding a tattoo shop means
having to travel to either of the
coasts to find a good place.
Taking a look around the
city, the tattoo artists found a
perfect location on Bond Street
and got to work right away.
Walking into the shop, a
number of the tattoo artist's
creations adorn the brick walls
inside the business. The artists
have taken to decorating the in-
side with light touches of their


personal creations.
The shop offers all types
of tattoos, limited only by the
customers' ambitions, and also
provides piercings and perma-
nent make up services -- includ-
ing eyebrows and lipliner.
There are currently three
separate stations that provide
privacy for customers, with the
hope of adding a fourth.
Since opening the shop last
Wednesday, business has been
booming. In its grand opening
event on Saturday, the shop
was booked for the entire day,
although walk ins were accom-
modated.

Abandoned Spanish Settlements and Forts


Early settlements
and confrontations
shape the relations of
the Native Americans
and the Spanish

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Fiery comets streaked across
the black empty space of night,
marking their flight with long,
thin vaporous trails of smoke that
arced across the heavens.
The flaming arrows hummed
like angry bees as they plum-
meted earthward, striking the
thatched roofs of the Spanish
shelters.
Gray wisps of smoke drifted
upward from the smothering
palm fronds until amber flames,
stroked by the stiff ocean breezes,
raced hungrily across the dwell-
ings, creating white, billowing
clouds that spiraled skyward.
The quietly settled twilight
awoke to an early pre-dawn as
the roaring fires clawed at the
night sky.
Wild, excited crowds danced
themselves into a hysterical fren-
zy as the burning inferno swept
across the entire Spanish settle-
ment.
Raging flames consumed the
huts and walled barricades, turn-
ing them into fire pyres that burnt
into the night.
The thunderous sound of many
voices rose like a storm above the
fire's crackling roar as chants and
songs echoed the unconquerable
will of the Calusa nation.
This fictitious yarn reflects Na-
tive Indian culture that resisted
Spain's early encroachments in
south Florida during the 15th and
early 16th centuries.
It is time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and read about the demise
of the Spanish forts and missions
in south Florida during the 15th
century.
South Florida was a vast wet-
land integrated with lakes, rivers,
sloughs and swamps that rose
and fell at nature's whim.
It was a hostile environment to

St. Augustine being one early settlement in Florida, it was just one of many important settlements of Florida history. Forts
in Tampa Bay, in the province of Calus and on the Miami River were instrumental in the development of foreign settlers in
Florida.


the early Spanish expeditions that
came in search of riches, but to
their dismay found warlike Indi-
ans and hardships.
The Spanish built forts along
Florida's coast to protect their
rich laden ships and citizens from
the Native Indians and other Eu-
ropean nations.
Early Spanish forts and settle-
ments in south Florida were lo-
cated on Tampa Bay, Charlotte
Harbor and the Miami River.
These locations were strategic
areas that provided fresh water
and natural harbors for ships.
The fort locations built in south
Florida during the 15th century
are listed below:

A fort and settlement on
an islet in the province of Calus


called St. Antonio.
It was started with thirty six
houses that were encircled with a
wall of logs and sticks.
The Calusa Indians rebelled
against the Spanish and Pedro
Menendez Marques beheaded
Casique Felipe and twenty-two
other leading Indians.
He abandoned the fort in
1571.

A fort was started on
Tampa Bay with twenty-four
houses.
The supplies went bad due to
heavy rains and the soldiers grew
weak.
The Tocobaga Indians killed
everyone in the fort.
Pedro Menendez Marques
burnt the Indian villages and fort


to the ground. The Spanish aban-
doned the fort in 1567.

A fort and mission was
started in 1567 on the Miami Riv-
er.
The Tequesta Indians killed
several soldiers and constantly
threatened the fort.
The Spanish abandoned the
fort in 1570.

There was a religious fervor in
Spain among the men of the cloth
to Christianize the Indians in the
New World.
The Spanish government en-
couraged missions in south Flor-
ida and for good reason.
It was a lot easier for a Span-
iard in South Florida to sleep at
night if he knew the Native Amer-


ican was following the Christian
creed, "Love thy neighbor as thy-
self" rather than following an an-
cient creed that would make the
Spaniard's decapitated head the
life of the party.
The Calusa, Tequesta and
other tribes in south Florida were
fiercely independent and warlike.
The religious and social cus-
toms that they believed were in-
grained in their lives by tradition.
Some of their customs were
bad.
A child was sacrificed when
a Casique (king) lost a child and
house hold members were sacri-
ficed when a Casique died.
Yearly human sacrifices were
made to their idols.
Spanish priest attempted to
teach the Indians the Christian


doctrine, which conflicted with
many of the Indian's barbarous
customs.
Many honest priests practiced
and lived the Christian doctrine
in their hearts and were willing to
risk or lose their lives to convert
the Indians.
Unfortunately, many Spaniards
marched under the banner of
Christianity in a traditional form
and failed to adhere to the true
"Doctrine of Faith."
The Spanish soldiers per-
formed barbarous acts under the
guise of Christianity that spawned
seeds of hate and mistrust in the
Indian communities.
Christian doctrine and the con-
flicting roles that Spanish priest
and soldiers lived were confusing
to the Indians and encouraged
them to maintain all their reli-
gious and social customs.
The Jesuit missions were a
failure in South Florida in the 15th
and early 16th centuries.
Forts and missions were com-
pletely abandoned in south Flori-
da until the later part of the 16th
century.
There will be more "Tale Tales"
in next week's edition "A Walk in
The Past" when the Spanish re-
turn to south Florida in the late
1600s.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

pictures, or a "Whale of a Tale"

day through Friday from 9 a.m. to

Glades Central's basketball season ends


Clewiston, Glades
Day eked out close
wins in their regional
quarterfinal games

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION -
Clewiston won't be facing off
against Glades Central after all.
It would have been nice to see
both boys basketball teams make
it to the Class 4A Final Four, but
for Glades Central, it just didn't
work out.
The Raiders, who finished
their season at 20-7, lost their
regional quarterfinal matchup to
Rockledge, 56-53.
Glades Central's season end-
ed on a game-winning layup by
Rockledge's Ralph Williams, who
scored 34 points in the game.
Tied at 53 late in the Feb. 19
game, Williams stole the ball
from Glades Central's Antwon
Chisolm, took it coast-to-coast


and put in the winning layup.
Williams followed through
with a free-throw after being
fouled, which sealed the deal in
Glades Central's loss.
Interestingly, Glades Cen-
tral had the lead throughout the
game, but simply could not stop
Rockledge's best player.
For that alone, perhaps, the
Raiders are now forced to look
forward to next season.
As for Clewiston, they moved
on to the Class 4A regional semifi-
nals after a close 60-58 home win
against Golden Gate on Feb. 19.
Clewiston, who improved to
21-4 after the win, scored a road
date with District 12-4A winner
Naples Lely.
The District 11-4A winner
played Naples Lely on Tuesday
night.
"I'm so proud of how our
team is doing do far," Clewiston
head coach Willie Lee said hours
before the game against Lely.
"I love this team because
they've accomplished a lot this
year.


In 2006, Clewiston lost to Lely
in the Class 4A regional quarter-
finals.
But Lee, who knows the vast
potential that his team carries,
preferred to be realistic when
asked on Clewiston's chances of
advancing to the Class 4A region-
al final on Saturday.
"All we can do is work hard
and do our best," Lee said in a
telephone interview on Tuesday
afternoon, while preparing for the
team's bus ride to Naples.
"God's in control, no matter
how we see it.
"This is what we worked hard
for since the summer," Lee con-
tinued.
"This team has the chance to
make its own history," Lee said.
Clewiston's last trip to the FH-
SAA Final Four was in 1992.
Glades Day also earned the op-
portunity to make its own history,
as well.
After a 49-45 road win against
2008 Class 2A state runner-up
Sagemont (Weston), Glades Day
knew who its next opponent


was.
The Gators (20-6 after the Class
2A regional quarterfinal win)
played Summit Christian in West
Palm Beach on Tuesday night.
It marked the fourth time that
the archrivals faced off against
each other.
Glades Day lost two of three
meetings to Summit Christian pri-
or to the Class 2A regional semifi-
nal matchup.
That includes Glades Day's 45-
44 loss in the District 13-2A cham-
pionship game.
Had Glades Day won that
game, then they would have been
the home team Tuesday night.
The Glades Day-Summit Chris-
tian winner will play on Saturday
night for the right to move on the
Class 2A Final Four, which is on
March 5.
If Glades Day makes it to the
Class 2A Final Four, it would be
the first in school history, capping
off an amazing season they've
had.

U.S. Sugar confronts possible takeover bid


U.S. Sugar declares
dividend distribution
of stockholder
purchase rights; a
measure against
takeover bids

CLEWISTON, February 23,
2009-The Board of Directors of
United States Sugar Corporation
declared the adoption of a Stock-
holder Rights Plan and a dividend
distribution of one "Purchase
Right" for each outstanding share
of its common stock.
"Basically the Stockholder


Rights Plan and Purchase Right
distribution are legal tools de-
signed to assure that the Com-
pany's stockholders receive fair
and equal treatment in the event
of a hostile takeover of the Com-
pany," said Robert Coker, senior
vice president, public affairs.
"By hostile, I refer to a bid-
der who does not negotiate with
our Board, who could offer only
some of our stockholders a high
price to gain control of U.S. Sugar
and offer less to the remaining
stockholders," Coker said.
"It is not intended to deter or
discourage bona fide offers and
proposals that the Board in good
faith determines are fair, advis-
able and in the best interests of all


of the Company's stockholders,"
Coker said.
"What happens with the
Stockholder Rights Plan in place
is that when someone buys 15%
of U.S. Sugar's stock, the Board
can trigger an exchange of 'rights'
for stock, in essence doubling the
number of shares held by remain-
ing shareholders.
"The hostile bidder does not
receive the additional shares, and
in this example, the 15% would
be diluted to approximately 8%,"
Coker said.
Coker said that sharehold-
ers and employees are being
informed of the distribution in a
letter accompanied by legal docu-
ments outlining the benefit.


"This action does not affect
the number of shares or the value
of shares a shareholder currently
owns.
"It has no impact unless trig
gered by a hostile action," said
Coker.
"The whole purpose of the
Stockholder Rights Plan is to al-
low the Board to properly exer-
cise its fiduciary duties as it con-
siders alternative transactions and
to protect all stockholders from
coercive and discriminatory take-
over attempts," Coker said.

4377 Fort Simmons.
The execution of a search war-
rant by members of the Sheriffs
Office paid off.
Investigators located behind


the residence of 53-year-old Pe-
dro Linares, a barn with a sophis-
ticated indoor marijuana growing
operation.
They found three large air con-
ditions units, two air conditioner
handlers, and twenty seven 1,000
watt grow lights with transform-


ers, sophisticated electrical net-
work and irrigation system, ex-
haust fans, and numerous other
items that assisted in the cultiva-

Governor names 'Tobacco Free Florida Week'


TALLAHASSEE-Governor
Charlie Crist has proclaimed Feb.
27 through March 7, as Tobacco
Free Florida Week to promote
smoke-free living while remind-
ing tobacco users of programs
and support that are available to
help them quit.
During Tobacco Free Florida
Week, Floridians are encouraged
to take the pledge to be tobacco
free on www.tobaccofreeflor-
idaweek.com.
In partnership with FOX Sports
Florida and Sun Sports, pro and
college teams around the State
are rallying behind the campaign.
Throughout the week, Tobacco
Free Florida will be the focal point
of eight sporting events for the
following teams: Orlando Magic,
Florida State University men's
basketball, Florida Marlins, Miami
HEAT, Tampa Bay Rays, Florida
Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning


and University of Florida men's
basketball (see game schedule
below).
Total attendance at the eight
events is projected to top 100,000
with the televised games reach-
ing millions more across the state
on Sun Sports and FOX Sports
Florida.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week
presents a tremendous platform
for us to utilize our unique media
assets, along with those of our
sports team partners across the
state, in a concentrated, highly-
visible way and encourage Florid-
ians to pledge to be tobacco free,"
said Steve Liverani, Sr. VP/GM of
FOX Sports Florida & Sun Sports.
"The consequences of tobacco
use are well-documented and we
are proud to be part of this call to
action pledge campaign."
During the week, the Tobac-
co Free Florida Street Team and


Smokifier vans will travel around
the state to spread the message
and host school rallies featuring
athletes from Florida's pro teams.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week
is an opportunity to unite Florid-
ians against the leading cause of
preventable illness, disability and
premature death in Florida, says
Kim Berfield, Deputy Secretary of
the Florida Department of Health.
"By combining efforts of pro-
fessional and collegiate teams,
local County Health Departments
and other key tobacco prevention
stakeholders, we can further ex-
tend the reach of the campaign's
message."
To counter the advertising ef-
forts of tobacco companies that
spends more money on advertis-
ing in Florida than in any other
state, Tobacco Free Florida's
statewide youth prevention adver-
tising campaign will also aunch


that week, with television, radio,
cinema and print ads across the
state, encouraging youth to "Be
Free" from tobacco.
Smoking is responsible for up-
wards of 29,000 deaths in Florida
each year, and thousands more
suffer from cancer, heart disease
and other chronic diseases re-
lated to tobacco use and second-
hand smoke.
Nearly one out of every five
adult's smoke, and 28.8 million
packs of cigarettes are bought or
smoked by youth in Florida each
year.

SFWMD committed to Solving Weedy Worries


District and its
partners recognize
National Invasive
Weeds Awareness
Week

West Palm Beach, FL While
exotic pythons in the Everglades
have slithered across recent head-
lines, an invader equally insidi-
ous to the natural environment
remains at the forefront of the
South Florida Water Management
District's (SFWMD) mission to
manage and protect the region's
water resources.
Non-native plants continue to
stress the natural environment by
crowding out native vegetation,
which a diverse array of wildlife
depend on for food and habitat.
Invasive plants can also clog
flood control canals and struc-
tures, impede waterway naviga-
tion and impact recreation and
other facets of the Florida econ-
omy.
As National Invasive Weeds
Awareness Week begins this
week, the SFWMD continues
its work to control exotic plants
while at the same time identifying
and mustering defenses against
new invaders.
The District has invested at
least $20 million in each of the
past five years to remove the most
threatening invasive species, such
as Old World climbing fern, Bra-
zilian pepper and water hyacinth.
In 2008 alone, the District
treated more than 92,400 acres
to combat Melaleuca, torpedo
grass, the climbing fern and other
offenders.
"Invasion of exotic plant spe-
cies remains one of the most seri-
ous environmental issues facing
Florida," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chair Eric Buermann.
"Controlling these invaders
is a key component of the Dis-
trict's environmental restoration
mission and is crucial to public
safety."
Along with environmental and
public safety concerns, exotic
plant species cost the agricultural
industry alone more than $20 bil-
lion annually, according to the
North American Weed Manage-
ment Association.

and Science:

Park in Martin County.
The SFWMD, in partnership
with the U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture's Agricultural Research
Service, released a thousand Neo-
musotima conspurcatalis moths
at the park in 2008.
The moths lay eggs that morph
into caterpillars that chew through
dense stands of the invasive Old
World climbing fern without
harming native Florida ferns.
The SFWMD supports contin-
ued applied scientific research
that improves management ef-
forts.
To further facilitate that ef-
fort, the District participates in
key partnerships with agencies
including: the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC); the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service; the USDA's Agricultural
Research Service; the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and the U.S.
Department of the Interior.
An example of these partner-
ships was the coordination be-
tween the District and the FWC to
combat Brazilian pepper in Water


Conservation Area 3, benefiting
the native population of deer and
birds.
The District has taken several
other steps toward curbing inva-
sive plant species:
July 2008: The SFWMD part-
nered with Palm Beach County
to remove non-native plants from
150 acres in the DuPuis Manage-
ment Area.
July 2008: The District Gov-
erning Board approved an agree-
ment with the USDA's Agricultural
Research Service to continue de-
veloping biological controls in
the form of tiny insects to fight
Brazilian pepper and Old World
climbing fern.
March 2008: Scientists intro-
duced nearly 20,000 grass carp
into the North New River Canal by
Fort Lauderdale. The hungry fish,
which do not breed, feast on the
rapidly growing invasive hydrilla
plant that can clog structures in
SFWMD flood-control canals.
A Success Story:
Melaleuca remains an ex-
ample of the District's success in
managing exotics.
Once covering hundreds of


thousands of acres, this species
now is only occasionally spotted
on District-managed lands.
What seemed to be an insur-
mountable invasive species now
is being successfully managed
through sustained interagency
commitment.
The District-led Melaleuca
management program is in its
nineteenth year, and resource
management agencies estimate
this program has cost nearly $40
million to date.
Florida's Melaleuca manage-
ment program is a model for in-
vasive species management na-
tionally.
Continued Vigilance:
The SFWMD has located two
invasive aquatic plants newly dis-
covered in Florida, Luziola subin-
tegra and Azolla pinnata.
Containing these new prob-
lems in a "rapid response" effort
has required clearly identifying
the plants and then determining
their best management practices.
Residents also play an impor-
tant role in the protection of South
Florida's environment.
One of the primary ways that
invasive species, both plant and
animal, end up in the natural envi-
ronment is when they are thrown
out or released by people who no
longer want them.
For example, emptying a tropi-
cal aquarium full of live but non-
native aquatic plants can have
serious consequences for the en-
vironment.
SFWMD Senior Scientist Mike
Bodle discussed invasive plants
and the District's management
efforts.

District's efforts to control exotic
invasive species, visit www.sf-

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Walking: Long and Slow, Short and Fast?


Some people may wonder if
it's better to walk a long distance
at a slow pace or a short distance
at a fast pace.
Well, studies have shown that
no matter the distance or the
pace, "hoofing it" adds so many
health benefits.
So it's better to walk some,
than nothing at all!
To burn the most calories
however, (from every minute


that you are squeezing out of you
busy schedule) you should walk
very briskly.
Speedy walking can help your
heart and lungs to become stron-
ger.
A new study by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) found that brisk walking
on a regular basis can also length-
en the lives of people who have
diabetes.


Some people may also won-
der if walking in the morning is
better than walking at night.
Well, a calorie burned, is a cal-
orie burned, whether it's morning
or night.
The important thing is to
choose a time that fits best with
your schedule so that you are
more likely to stick with it.
No matter how young or how
old you are, walking is one of the


easiest things we can do for our
bodies.
Grab a friend, your children or
your pet and "hit the pavement."
Turn it into an adventure, and
you'll have some fun while be-
coming healthier.
Walking can help build and
maintain healthy bones, muscles
and joints, and reduce the risk
of coronary heart disease, high
blood pressure, and diabetes.


It can also help reduce symp-
toms of anxiety and depression
and help to control the swelling
and pain from arthritis.
Walking can also help to con-
trol weight, build lean muscle and
reduce fat.
So get out there and get mov-
ing.


FWC use magnets to keep crocodiles away


Magnets usually attract, but the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) want
magnets to do just the opposite.
FWC biologists are studying if
magnets can keep state-endan-
gered American crocodiles from
returning to situations where
they are not welcome, primarily
in neighborhoods in Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties.
Crocodile-human interactions
have increased as the croco-
dile population has recovered.
One technique to resolve these
conflicts is translocation. This
involves capturing the croco-
dile and moving it to suitable
crocodile habitat as far away as
possible, in an attempt to keep
it away from an area. However,
translocation is seldom effective.
FWC biologists have found that
translocated crocodiles will travel
an average of 10 miles per week
to return to their capture site, in a
practice called "homing." Others


never make it because they are
hit and killed by vehicles as they
cross roads. Some may be killed
by other crocodiles at the release
site or during their journey back.


In an effort to break the "hom-
ing" cycle, FWC biologists have
initiated a new study. Crocodile
agents have been instructed to at-
tach magnets to both sides of the

crocodile's head at the capture
site. It is hoped the magnets will
disorient the crocodiles and dis-
rupt their navigation, so they can't
find their way back to the capture
site. The magnets are removed
from the crocodile's head upon
release. Agents will also secure a
colored tag to the crocodile's tail,
so returning crocodiles can be
identified later.
"Scientists in Mexico have re-
ported success in using magnets
to break the homing cycle," said
Lindsey Hord, FWC crocodile re-
sponse coordinator. "The results
of the study are promising. If it
proves successful here, we could
gain an effective technique to re-
solve crocodile-human conflicts."
If a nuisance crocodile contin-
ues to return to the capture site,
or its behavior presents an un-
acceptable risk to people, under
certain circumstances, it could
be removed from the wild and
placed into captivity.

Potential skin damage from


"Black Henna" tattoo


Chubby Babies Are Cute,


But Are They Healthy?


Tallahassee The Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) warns
students of potential health risks
from having a temporary "black
henna" tattoo applied to their
skin.
This issue is especially impor-
tant as more than 250,000 stu-
dents are expected to hit Florida
beaches for 2009 "Spring Break"
which extends from mid Febru-
ary to mid April.
Last year, DOH received 17 re-
ports of severe allergic reactions
to temporary black henna tattoos
applied in one of Florida's beach
communities.
"Black henna" tattoos have
become popular in recent years
because they look more like a
"real" tattoo.
In reality, there is no such thing
as "black henna."
True henna paste is green or
greenish brown and must remain
on the skin eight hours or over-
night to leave a brown or reddish-


brown design.
The paste for a "black henna"
tattoo is black or brownish-black
and can be removed in one hour
or less to leave a black design.
The danger of "black henna"
tattoos is that the black color may
be a result of the addition of black
hair dye, which may contain a
toxic chemical called para-phe-
nylenediamine (PPD).
PPD can cause severe allergic
reactions in some individuals.
The general progression of
symptoms is itching or burning,
blistering, oozing, scab forma-
tion, and sometimes permanent
scarring in the shape of the tattoo
design.
Symptoms may occur within a
few hours or up to a few weeks,
depending upon the concentra-
tion of PPD in the paste and how
allergic a person is.
Medical attention should be
sought immediately upon any
symptoms of an allergic reaction.


In addition to medical attention,
allergic reactions should be re-
ported electronically to DOH on
the Injury Report Form found on
the department website at www.
doh.state.fl.us/Environment/com-
munity/Black_Henna/index.htm.
Temporary tattoo hints in-
clude:
Ensure the paste is green or
greenish-brown.
Ask to see the ingredients,
which should be ground henna
leaves, lemon or grapefruit juice,
and possibly botanical oil.
Ask how long the paste should
stay on skin.
The answer should be eight
hours to overnight.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida. For more information
about DOH programs, visit www.
doh.state.fl.us.


How can you tell
when your child is
developing a weight
problem?
Obesity (being overweight)
has become a major public
health concern for all ages.
Believe it or not, the prob-
lems actually start while you are
a baby.
People may say "oh what a
cute chubby little baby," but did
you know that overweight ba-
bies usually grow up to be over-
weight adults?
Obesity has been linked to
diabetes, heart disease and some
cancers.
It may be surprising, but even
six month old babies can show
evidence of diabetes and high
cholesterol.
It's so easy to stick a bottle


in a crying baby's mouth, but
sometimes it may not be hunger
that's causing the crying and you
are just training your baby to eat
something when they are upset.
Babies usually eat every three
hours or so, and they can even
recognize when they are full, so
don't try to force your little one
to "finish the bottle" if they don't
seem to want to continue eat-
ing.
Also, babies can develop a
"sweet tooth" at an early age.
Once your baby is big enough
to eat baby foods, start them on
some healthy vegetable types,
because once the sweet stuff
touches their lips, you'll be forev-
er trying to get them to eat their
peas and green beans!
Once you start giving them
100% fruit juice, give them no
more than 6 ounces a day.
Fruit juices have lots of extra
sugar and extra sugar means ex-


tra calories.
So if someone tells you that
you have a "cute chubby baby"
you may want to talk to your
healthcare provider to make
sure that you are not over feed-
ing your baby.
Healthy babies can grow into
healthy adults.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!

mation Officer and Planning Con-

frustration with how that project
has sat stagnant.
Perhaps finding a way out of
all the leases could alleviate some
financial burden the county is un-

"We're broke," said Commis-
sioner Turner, who pledged on

tention because he had been shot
while trying to kill a wild hog.
The man's leg had a tightly
wrapped shirt acting as a tourni-
quet, and a small pool of blood
had formed in the vehicle.
Llufrio told the deputy he did
not say anything about the injured
man because he did not want to
get into trouble. He said he had
shot the man by accident.
Medical personnel determined

"We've been pretty busy," said
Mr. Perez. "Now they don't have
to go all the way to Palm Beach
and we give them reasonable
prices."
And about those prices?
"Our limit is $50, but depend-


to have to even lose some more
services. We know we haven't
had court on the east side of the
county for three years now. We
may not ever get court back on
the east side of the county.
"It's gonna get way worse be-
fore it gets better," Commissioner
Turner said.
Commissioner Chapman
agreed.
"We've got some difficult deci-
sions to make in our budgeting
process and we're right around
the corner," said Commissioner

the door to the vehicle would
have to be cut to remove Llanes.
Hearing this, Llufrio walked to-
ward EMS and fire personnel to
keep them from cutting the door.
Deputies ordered Llufrio to
step away, but the suspect report-
edly told them he could not allow
them to cut the door because the
vehicle did not belong to him.
"We advised Llufrio that he
needed to worry about his friend
and not the vehicle," Deputy Per-
ez said.
Two deputies tried to appre-
hend the visibly upset suspect,
who tightened his body and re-
fused to enter the police cruis-

ing on how big they want it, tat-
toos can cost $1,000, $2,000 up
to $4,000 if you want your whole
back done," the operator said.
The business is located at 111
Bond St. It is open from 10 a.m.
to 10 p.m. every day. The owners
are debating whether to keep the
store open every day, and will be
looking at just how busy they stay
in the coming weeks.


Chapman. "Some of those tough
decisions could require some per-
sonnel adjustments. I'm reluctant
to sign up for a one-year lease at
a facility where we're not at all
sure what our headcount is going
to be. We have some tough times
coming up here."
Commissioners have instruct-
ed the attorney to negotiate bet-
ter terms, including the option to
terminate after 90 days.

ground, the suspect kicked, hit-
ting both deputies and threaten-
ing to call the "real police."
Medical personnel had to be-
come involved in restraining the
man, placing his feet in restraints,
also.
Llufrio complied once the re-
straints were removed and was
charged with resisting arrest with
violence, and possession of a
weapon by a convicted felon. He
was also issued a citation for care-
less driving.
Llanes, the gunshot victim,
was transported to Lee Memorial

CCS Kicks off RAK Week
The Random Acts of Kindness (RAK) Club at Clewiston Christian School sponsored a
"Kindness Door Competition" in honor of Random Acts of Kindness Week which runs
Feb. 9-15. Each classroom was encouraged to participate with a door covering showing a
kindness theme. Mayor Mali Chamness and Gaile Carter served as judges for the activity.
Shown here are the judges and first grader classmates with their entry entitled "Kindness
shows a Big heart" which was honored as the "Most Colorful."


Although, it's hard to miss the bad news
about housing and mortgages these
days, it is actually one ofthe best times to
buy a home. Interest rates are the lowest
they've been in decades, home prices
are the lowest in years and Seacoast
National Bank is open for business
and making residential mortgage loans.

In fact, we've been in business for
over 80 years. We did not participate
in payment-option ARMs (adjustable
rate mortgages), sub-prime loans or
other 'exotic' mortgage loans you read
about today and which so many other
mortgage lenders are struggling with.
Instead, we sat out the irrational lending
frenzy and built our internal resources
to better serve our customers and home
buyers today and in the future.

ARM(ed) But Not Dangerous
The events of the last few years have
created the perception that all ARMs
(Adjustable Rate Mortgages) are
dangerous they're not. There are
times when an ARM is the right loan
for the situation. For instance, a couple
purchasing a home that plans to sell and
upgrade in a few years would most likely
benefit from a shorter term ARM loan.
It's a matter of applying common sense
lending practices and selecting the right
loan to fit the needs of the borrower.

New Lock & Shop Service
We recently introduced our "Lock and
Shop" service at Seacoast that allows
prospective home buyers to be pre-
approved for a mortgage and lock in
the rate on an Adjustable Rate
Mortgage (ARM) at the time of


application for up to 90 days. You can
then shop for a home with the peace
of mind that the rate will not increase
while you shop. If rates go down before
you close on the loan, so does your rate.
You can also choose to change the loan
to a fixed rate option at closing.


Interest rates are the lowest
they've been in decades,
home prices are the lowest in years
and Seacoast NationalBank
is open for business and making
residential mortgage loans.



Technology & Convenience
A common misconception is that an
online-only lender will save a home
buyer money. Although the Internet
is ideal for gathering information, the
drawbacks of working with an online-
only lender outweigh the advantages.
To complement our loan services,
Seacoast has convenient online tools
for home buyers including a mortgage
calculator and application for those
who want online convenience. However
you choose to apply, local, dedicated
mortgage loan officers are available to
assist you with the application process
in person at your home or office, at a
Seacoast office or over the telephone.
Seacoast's professional mortgage
lenders are prepared to understand your
current economic and housing needs, to
answer your questions and make quick
local decisions. We disclose all terms
and conditions up front, and provide
a single point of contact throughout
the process, so there are no surprises at
closing. Our promise to you is simple -
whether you apply online or in person,
there's nothing "mechanical" about the
way you'll be treated as a customer.

Come to Seacoast feel good about
your bank.

Let the lower lights be burning!


By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The song writer was inspired to write
this gospel song by hearing the follow-
ing story told by Dwight L. Moody: On a
dark, stormy night, a boat, rocking and
plunging, neared the Cleveland harbor.
"Are you sure this is Cleveland?"
asked the captain, seeing only one light
from the lighthouse.
"Quite sure," replied the pilot.
"Where are the lower lights?"
"Gone out, sir."
"Can you make the harbor?"
"We must, or perish, sir!"
With a strong hand and a brave heart
the old pilot turned the wheel.
But alas, in the darkness he missed
the channel, and with a crash upon the
rocks the boat was shivered, and many
a life lost in the watery grave.
The Master will take care of the great
lighthouse, let us keep the lower lights
burning."
The song was published in 1871 in
"The Charm," written by Philip Bliss.


Jesus said, "Ye are the light of the
world ... and it giveth light unto all ... let
you light so shine" (See Matthew 5:14-
16).
The world often does not see the evi-
dence of God.
Nor do they read the Bible. They do
not go to church either -- so if there will
ever be a gospel influence on them it
will come from those who are Chris-
tians.
Your Christian example is so impor-
tant to the lost as well as to other Chris-
tians.
We are the lower lights that save oth-
ers from loss.
James 5:10 says, "Take, my breth-
ren, the prophets, who have spoken in
the name of the Lord, for an example of
suffering affliction and of patience.
We can hear lessons on patience and
faithfulness but an example is so much
more helpful.
When the message is lived we learn
best.
We are challenged to be faithful to


the Lord when we see how Isaiah, Jer-
emiah and Amos suffered.
The faithfulness of Daniel inspires
us.
To see how the Lord repeatedly
blessed Daniel for his good choices en-
courages us to do the same.
Gideon was a great leader who led a
great victory.
His personal dedication inspired the
others.
Just before the great victory over the
Midianites, he instructed the small 300
man army what to do and then said,
"Do as I do" (Judges 7:17).
How challenging are the leaders
who set the pace and bear their part of
the load.
Gideon visually showed the right life
style.
When Israel was discouraged and
most were ready to quit, Jonathan
shone as an example of courage.
With only the armor bearer at his
side he challenged the entire Philistine
army.


What a light in a dark time.
Others following his example
stepped up and a great victory was won
(I Sam. 14).
On the way to Rome, Paul's ship was
caught in a terrible storm which lasted
for days.
The outlook was dark.
Hope was gone.
But Paul received encouraging words
from the Lord.
He passed this on to the others say-
ing, "be of good cheer: for I believe God
that it shall be even as it was told me."
We need to be a lower light when
others are discouraged.
They will be shipwrecked without
hope of the gospel.
There are so many who need words
of comfort. Pass them on.


The wonderful thing about Tiggers


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There is within each of us a desire
to explain complex truths in a simple
way.
That's why adults like the three min-
ute children's message just as much or
more than the kids!
That's why I want to share with you
my fascination with Tigger (tee eye-
double gee errr).
As the Tigger Song on Youtube goes,
"The wonderful thing about Tiggers is
Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops
are made out of rubber.
"Their bottoms are made out of
springs. They're bouncy, trouncy, floun-
cy, pouncy -- Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!"
When Tigger first comes to the 100-
acre wood, he shows up in the middle of
the night at Winnie the Pooh's house.
Pooh asks him to be quiet and sleep
and in the morning he could have a
bowl of honey.
Tigger said, "That's what tiggers like
best!"
But in the morning, when Tigger
tastes the honey, it turns out that tigers
don't like honey after all.
So Pooh walks and Tigger bounces


to Piglet's house to munch on some
of Piglet's favorite food haycorns
(acorns).
But when he tastes a haycorn, he
finds out that tigers don't like hay-
corns.
So Pooh and Piglet walk, and Tigger
bounces, on down to Eeyore's place to
sample some of Eeyore's favorite food
- thistles.
It comes as no surprise that we soon
discover that tigers don't like thistles
either.
Right away, we learn that although
Tigger may not be the sharpest tack
in the box, he is always happy, always
positive, always confident.
He might be hungry, but that doesn't
keep him from bouncing.
Tigger is the personification of "look-
ing on the bright side."
A tigger makes the most of each and
every moment and in doing so fills his
world with joy.
Tigger bounces in joy, although his
bouncing annoys the always practical
and reasonable Rabbit, who thinks it's
impractical and unreasonable to be
bouncing and so filled with joy all of the
time.


Once, when Rabbit was particularly
perturbed with Tigger and his bouncing,
he hatched a plan to change Tigger by
taking Tigger deep into the woods and
waiting for him to bounce out ahead of
the other animals as he always did, and
then to run home, leaving Tigger lost
and alone in the woods overnight.
"Mark my words," says Rabbit, "he'll
be a different Tigger altogether."
"Why," said Pooh. "Because he'll
be a humble Tigger. Because he'll be a
Sad Tigger, a Melancholy Tigger, a Small
and Sorry Tigger..."
"I should hate him to go on being
Sad," said Piglet.
"Tiggers never go on being Sad," ex-
plained Rabbit.
"They get over it with Astonishing
Rapidity. I asked Owl and that's what he
said, they always get over it with Aston-
ishing Rapidity."
No life is without sadness.
No life is without troubles and trials.
But Tigger, it seems, and tigger-like
people, find a way to get over these
things with "Astonishing Rapidity."
Give thanks to God!
For God makes it possible for each
and everyone of us to be joyful.


We find in the Psalms, "God has
turned my mourning into dancing; God
has taken off my sackcloth and clothed
me with joy."
God makes it possible for each and
everyone of us to bounce like Tigger.
Even Rabbit eventually comes to ap-
preciate Tigger's bounciness.
Tigger brings something special to
the hundred acre wood. Tigger brings
joy.
We need more Tiggers in the world.
We need more joy in the world.
We need more bouncing.
Life is bigger and better when it is
lived joyfully.
Let us ask God for joy and let us con-
centrate on the blessings and the good
things of life.
Let us not be anxious about the bad,
but give it to God.
Joy will make us better.
God will make it possible.


Words? Acts? Which tells the truth?


The Bible as a Sudoku
puzzle, or as an
affirmation of God?

By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I worked with people having
addiction problems, friends and family
would tell me "But he said....!" and find
out what was said didn't always match
what happened.
They learned quickly not to look at
words but at what was going on.
One of my professors wrote a book
called "Doing the Truth" and main-
tained that it's not our words but our
actions that tell who we really are, and
what we really stand for and believe.
The New Testament accounts of the
last days of the Lord on earth has one of
those involved in Jesus' execution (Pon-
tius Pilate) asking "What is truth?"
The answer is not always in the
words, but more reliably found in ac-
tions.
When it comes to the nature of God
and our relationship with Him, people

Fish Fry Dinners on Fri-
days at St. Joseph the
Worker Church
St. Joseph the Worker Church is hav-
ing Fish Fry Dinners every Friday from 5


will wonder "What can we believe?"
There are many conflicting interpre-
tations and understandings about "the
Word of God' and what it all means.
I know of people that regard find-
ing "the truth" as treating the Bible
like some sort of giant Sudoku puzzle,
stringing Bible verses together with the
right verses in the right order and saying
"There! I've solved it!"
Looking at people and their actions
as well as their words gives the best pic-
ture.
Sometimes a clear picture is in what
is not said, too, letting the deed speak
volumes and really telling the truth.
A recent lesson used one Sunday
morning was about the healing of a
leper (Mark 1: 40-45).
A leper approaches the Lord and
says "If you choose, you can make me
clean" The Lord responds "I do choose,
Be made clean" and the man was
healed.
Then the man is told to perform the
customary ritual offering and "See that
you say nothing to anyone."
The man instead tells everyone; so
many people that Jesus could no longer
go into town openly and stayed in the


p.m. to 7 p.m.
Dinners include fried fish, hush pup-
pies, a vegetable, dessert and tea, for a
donation of $7.
Eat there or take home.

Revival at Lighthouse Ap-
ostolic Church in
Clewiston
A revival service will be held on Feb.
26, Feb. 27 and March 1 at the Light-
house Apostolic Church from 10 a.m.
and 6:30 p.m.
Lighthouse Apostolic Church is lo-
cated at 911 Evercane Rd. in Clewiston.
Evangelist Josh Herring will be the
guest speaker.. For further information
please call 863-599-8661.

Jews For Jesus to speak at
church in Belle Glade
Greg Savitt of Jews for Jesus will
speak at Community United Methodist
Church, 401 SW First Street, Belle Glade
on March 1 at 11 a.m. Jews for Jesus
uses creative methods and contempo-
rary issues to present the message that
Jesus is the Messiah to Jewish people
around the world.
Mr. Savitt is the director of the south
Florida branch of Jews for Jesus.
Mr. Savitt was born and raised as a


country.
People came to Him anyway.
Evidently, he was "mobbed" be-
cause of the indiscretions of the cured
leper; and wanted not to have it turn
out this way, with "people coming from
every quarter (v.45)."
The man did what he was told not
to do.
Ordinarily, that would have been a
no-no, or a reason for getting angry, or
telling the man "See what you did Now
I can't even go into town!" or maybe
"Now you've done it! You're going to get
sick again. That will serve you right!"
Of course, none of these things hap-
pens.
It is in the deed, the act of kindness,
of healing, of love, that the true nature
of the Lord is revealed.
Words are only incidental to the act.
The man goes on his way, healed,
and we hear nothing else about him;
not even if he is thankful or not.
The deed tells the story; it stands by
itself as a witness of the true nature of
the Lord's character and what He feels
about us..
There is another account of ten lep-
ers who are cleansed (Luke 17:11 ff) and


conservative Jew in the Chicago area.
A friend began telling Mr. Savitt about
Jesus.
He listened and experienced a sense
of joy.
Eventually he attended church regu-
larly, accepted Jesus as the Messiah,
and then he left his well paying career
as a CPA to become a full time evange-
list with Jews for Jesus in 1997.
To the Jews for Jesus members,
the evidence of the Old and New Tes-
taments and the transformation in the
their lives provides the evidence that Je-
sus is the Jewish Messiah.
Mr. Savitt will be happy to answer
questions after the presentation.
There is no charge for admission.
Call the church office at 561 996
5568 for more information

Thrift shop open
at Church of God
of Prophecy
The Church of God of Prophecy, in
Moore Haven, will have a thrift shop
open on Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1
p.m., all things are given for a dona-
tion, this is to help for expenses of the
church.
We feel in helping the church it is
helping you also, with your needs.
All things are nice and clean, these
things are supplied by Cowboy Church


only one returns to give thanks.
Again, no lecture on "Where's your
manners" to the nine, or nothing about
them; they are left to enjoy the benefits
and blessings of their contact with the
Lord and then go on their way.
The one who gives thanks is also
told to go on his way, his faith has made
him whole.
All benefit from an act of outpour-
ing love that speaks volumes about the
nature of God's love for His creatures,
better than the stringing of Bible verses
together or trying to find out what "The
Lord said..." of quoting "That's what the
good book says."
Therein is the heart of knowing an-
other, of knowing the truth of a person,
of knowing about the Lord as well, and
a firm answer about "What is truth!"


- Hand & Hand Ministries of Palmdale, if
you would like to help us call 863-612-

bless you.
