A dog bites three people


Animal control:
Exercise precaution
near loose dogs

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Two Pitbulls
escaped from their owner Jan. 8
in Twin Lakes, resulting in three
people being bitten by a dog
who, according to animal control
officials, may have thought it was
protecting its pregnant partner.


While no serious injuries were
reported, the incident underscores
the importance of exercising pre-
caution around a loose animal,
as well as the need to keep pos-
sibly dangerous animals properly
secured.
Kathy Radcliffe's department,
a part of the county's animal
control division, responded to
the scene. The dog had attacked
three people, two children, and
an adult who was walking by at
the time.
While this latest attack in-


volved a Pitbull, Ms. Radcliffe is
careful to explain that the nega-
tive connotation so closely asso-
ciated with this dog is sometimes
unwarranted.
A previous Pitbull owner her-
self, her dog Blackjack was all
the things that a dog should be:
warm, loving, faithful.
Ms. Radcliffe enjoys dispelling
the rumors.
"I would tackle 20 Pitbulls over
one Chihuahua," said Ms. Rad-
cliffe, showing the scars on her
arm she said were the result of


one too many overzealous mini-
dogs over the years.
Pitbulls are different, she said.
"They're not really aggressive
dogs," Ms. Radcliffe said.
According to her, a dog's at-
titude toward humans has more
to do with its owners than with
the dog. Fighting dogs are con-
ditioned to attack, but animals
raised in a loving environment
will reflect those qualities and not
display aggressive tendencies.
"Blackjack was born in the
pound," the animal control work-

er said of her pet. "I loved him to
death, and he was the most gentle
70-pounder you ever saw."
Ms. Radcliffe warns residents
from getting anywhere near a
loose dog, and, if the attention of
a rab)d dog is caught, she urges
people to walk slowly away.
Running from the dog is
worse, she said, and kicks in the
animals primal instincts to "chase

The Great

Backyard

Bird Count
CLEWISTON -- Hundreds of
novice and accomplished bird
watchers can make their fasci-
nation with nature add up for
science and for the future dur-
ing the 11th annual Great Back-
yard Bird Count (GBBC), led by
Audubon and the Cornell Lab of
Ornithology.
During "Presidents Day"
weekend, February 15-18, one
can count birds from any loca-
tion and enter their tallies online
at www.birdcount.org. These
reports create an exciting real-
time picture of where the birds
are sighted across the continent
and contribute valuable infor-
mation for science and conser-
vation,
Clewiston residents of all
ages are invited to take part
in the GBBC. Participants will
count the highest number of
each bird species seen on one
or more of the designated count
days (Feb. 15-18). They will then
enter their daily counts on the
Great Backyard Bird Count web
site www.birdcount.org.
The Clewiston Museum is
presenting an Audubon Pow-
erPoint presentation on Feb 5,
2008 at 7 pm for the upcoming
GBBC. The PowerPoint presen-
tation will review all aspects of
the GBBC. Birds most common
to the Clewiston area will be
pictured during the presenta-
tion. Please call the Clewiston
Museum at (863) 983-2870 to
reserve a seat.
The 10 cities in the USA that
report the highest bird GBBC
will be listed on the Audubon
Society's web site. Clewiston
came close to ranking 10th last
year. Clewiston and eastern Hen-
dry county has a large variety of
birds, so let's put Clewiston on
the map as a key city in Florida

Clewiston family opens La Hacienda


New restaurant on
Sugarland serves up
variety of dishes

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- If you ask
Jaime Vallejo what his family's
restaurant offers, he'll answer
simply: "We just want our cus-
tomers to leave happy."
The manager of the newly
opened La, Hacienda Restau-
rant hopes that, after planning
and working at opening the res-
taurant for several years now,
customers will agree with his
simple goal.


The restaurant opened offi-
cially on Wednesday.
While no one in the Vallejo
family has any experience in
running a restaurant -- the family
is better known for its car sales
business -- Mr. Vallejo thinks the
new eatery will be successful.
During the construction pe-
riod, many wondered if the res-
taurant would offer mainly Mex-
ican cuisine, given the. name.
The family insisted that it try
something unique.
What is offered is a bit differ-
ent. There is some Mexican fare,
but traditional American and
some Italian dishes are avail-
able.
In coming up with the menu,
the family tossed the rules out of


the window and brothers and
sisters, and sisters-in-law all had
a say in what would be offered.
"What would you like to
eat?" Jaime asked them.
Everything came naturally
after that.
Customers can enjoy a tra-
ditional New York Strip dinner,
or sample Baby Back ribs, or
try out one of Latin dishes, like
beef fajitas. The restaurant also
serves breakfast and lunch.
Mr. Vallejo points to the mod-
erately priced food as having
value in the way that it's pre-
pared, cooked, and presented.
Everything has been carefully
selected, he said.

Attorney General warns

medicine can be harmful


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum issued a
consumer advisory on the heels
of an advisory from the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) that
warned over-the-counter cold
medicines should not be given
to.children under the age of two
years old. The FDA advisory cites
possible side effects that could be
serious and potentially life-threat-
ening in babies and toddlers and
warns parents that while the
medicines might appear to ease
cold symptoms in older children,
there is no evidence that they ac-
tually help younger children.
It is imperative that parents get
this important message of safety
for their young children, said At-
torney General McCollum. "When
a child is sick, our first instinct is
to do whatever we can to make
them feel better, but parents need
to be aware that medicines once
thought to be safe could instead
be deadly."
Attorney General McCollum re-
minded parents that cold season
is still in full swing and parents
should make sure they don't give
their younger children medicine
they may have purchased to give
their older siblings. The Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-


tion reported last year that more
than 1,500 babies and toddlers
wound up in emergency rooms
over a two-year period because
of the drugs. The FDA has also
found more than 120 child deaths
have been directly linked to anti-
histamines or decongestants over
the past 40 years.
The FDA has not yet deter-
mined whether older children are
also at risk but offered the follow-
ing guidelines for parents when
giving older children the medi-
cines: follow the dosing direc-
tions on the label of any over-the-
counter medication; understand
that these drugs will NOT cure or
shorten the duration of the com-
mon cold; check the "Drug Facts"
label to learn what active ingredi-
ents are in the products because
many over-the-counter cough
and cold products contain mul-
tiple active ingredients; and only
use measuring spoons or cups
that come with the medicine or
those made specifically for mea-
suring drugs.
More information, including
the FDA advisory, is available on
the FDA's website at http://www.
fda.gov/cder/index.html.


Understanding your property taxes


By Kristina Kulpa
Hendry County Property
Appraiser
For the past four weeks I
have been explaining the vari-
ous parts of Amendment One
that you will be voting on Jan.
29, 2008.
This week I will address
Non-Homestead Property As-
sessment Cap. The first part
will show the Amendment as
it will appear on the ballot, af-
ter that I will have a couple of
examples to help you under-
stand what this Cap will do for
you if passed.
The non-homestead prop-
erty assessment cap limits
the assessment increases for
specified non homestead real
property to 10 percent each
year. Property will be as-
sessed at just value following
an improvement, as defined
by general law, and may be
assessed at just value follow-
ing a change of ownership or
control if provided by general
law. This limitation does not
apply to school district taxes.
This limitation is repealed ef-
fective January 1, 2019, unless
renewed by a vote of the elec-
tors in the general election
held in 2018.
Further, this revision:
Repeals obsolete lan-
guage on the homestead ex-
emption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not'apply uni-
formly to property/taxes lev-
ied by all local governments.
Provides for homestead
exemptions to be repealed if
a future constitutional amend-
ment provides for assessment
of homesteads "at less than
just value" rather than as cur-
rently provided "at a specified
percentage" of just value.
Schedules the changes to
take effect upon approval by
the electors and operate retro-
actively to January 1, 2008, if
approved in a special election
held on January 29, 2008, or
to take effect January 1, 2009,
if approved in the general
election held in November of
2008. The, limitation on an-
nual assessment increases for
specified real property shall
first apply to the 2009 tax roll
if this revision is approved in a
special election held on Janu-


ary 29, 2008, or shall first ap-
ply to the 2010 tax roll if this
revision is approved in the
general election held in No-
vember of 2008.
If passed the following is
how the Amendment will ap-
ply to you.
Beginning January 1, 2009,
an assessment cap similar to
Save Our Homes is proposed
for non-homestead proper-
ties. The annual assessment
cap on these types of proper-
ties will be ten percent.
To receive the assessment
cap the owner of the property
will be required to file an an-
nual application. This non-
homestead property assess-
ment cap applies to owners
of second homes, commercial
properties and vacant parcels.
It does not apply to school dis-
trict levies.
For example if your prop-
erty is valued at $100,000 this
year and property values go
up by 20 percent next year,
the market value of your prop-
erty will be $120,000, but your
taxable value will only be
$110,000. Based on a tax rate
of 17.5 mils you will save $175
in next years taxes.
Another example is if your
property is valued at $100,000
this year and property values
go up by eight percent next
year, the market value of your
property will be $108,000,
--and your taxable value will
be $108,000. Because the in-
crease in property value did
not reach the 10 percent limit.
This assessment limitation
does not apply to school tax
levies.
The assessment limitation
will expire in ten years. At
that time, voters will decide
whether to reauthorize it.
Residential properties of
nine units or less will surren-
der accumulated protections
at change of ownership or
control, as defined by gen-
eral law. Initial application
required, you must apply by
March 1.
This exemption does not
apply to Classified Use (Green-
belt/Ag) Lands.
I hope this information
has helped you to understand
Amendment One, however
if you have questions on any

Closed for the day


The Martin Luther King Jr.
holiday being right on the heels
*of Christmas and Thanksgiving
gives us a chance to talk a little
bit about the closing of your
business, or when you should
close your business. Most small
businesses will need every avail-
able day to meet the monthly
goals and expenses that keep
the doors open, so excess clos-
ing is not a luxury that can be
afforded too often. This realiza-
tion is often one of the most so-
'bering for any new small busi-
ness owner. We go from being
able to turn off the alarm, roll
back over, and worry about
shaving another day. When you
are the boss however, you have
no choice but to wipe off that
drool (come on, you know you
do it!), turn off the alarm, and
head towards the shower while
your significant other enjoys the
fruits of the extra hour or two of
sleep.
While the disadvantage of
being open on a day that many
other businesses are obvious
as soon as you open your eyes
,on a day you prefer to have that
.three day weekend, the advan-
tages can often outweigh the
downside. Say for example you
have a convenience store and
your competitors have decided
to close their operations on not
only Christmas, but New Years
_ D>a&% MLK Day,-.,and,,Valentines-
Day because they are so deep


in love they have to hand feed
chocolate ruffles to their wife.
That gives you one less person
to compete against and money
paying patrons will be funneled
to you by default. This is when
you have to make sure you are
ready with great customer ser-
vice, the supplies they need,
and the promise of reliability. If
someone gets used to you be-
ing there, and know you will be
open, who do you think they will
make the first stop when they
need those last minute items?
So take a long hard look as
you begin to plan closing your
stores. Should you never close?
Do you really think closing your
store to celebrate the Patriots
victory over the Giants in the Su-
-per Bowl is a good idea? Sorry,
as a Pats fan I couldn't resist
a prediction! There are times
when closing is safe and accept-
able, it's up to you to determine
when that is, what is excessive,
and if you can actually afford to
not flip the sign to open.

Celebrating MLK
40 years after the death of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. the
Harlem Community celebrated and honored him with com-
munity activities. The theme was, "Let's not forget." The
events were led by the Martin Luther King Day Commit-
tee and Commissioner Janet Taylor. The community had
a gospel fest, youth experience, prayer breakfast, march,
and a community dinner. The events ended with six buses
leaving the community to attend the South Florida Fair,
where a Dr. Martin Luther King exhibition was on display.
The community thanks all those who made this possible.

Letters to the Editor


Contracting with
Hendry 2008
After deep and considered
soul searching and deliberation,
I have concluded that I need to
solicit a contract with each and
every one of you in this, the year
of our Lord, 2008.
All of this in spite of my often
stated reluctance to enter into a
relationship based on a list of well
meaning New Year's Resolutions.
One of a series of major con-
siderations that went into the
process committing to a bonding
resolution for 2008; is a firm belief
that thanks to your patience and
considerations, I have, at age 79,
matured enough to warrant your
continuing considerations.
As I've matured, I've learned
that you can't make anyone love
you. All you can do is to remain
positive and true to yourself. After
58 years of wedded bliss with the
same lovely lady, I've learned that
one good turn gets most of the
blankets. I've learned that no mat-
ter how much we care, some peo-
-ple are just unable to accept kind-
ness into their lives. I've learned
that if and when something hits
the fan, it has very little chance of
being distributed equally.
I've learned that although it
takes years to build up trust in a
relationship, suspicion and jeal-
ousy, based on rumor, not proof,
can destroy it.
I've learned that you shouldn't
necessarily compare or model
oneself to just anyone, since, in
many cases they are not what


they propose to be.
I've learned that depression
is really anger without consider-
ation and enthusiasm.
I've learned that clothes can
make a person, but the true test is
what's inside the person, not on
the outside.
I've learned that you can keep
hurting long after the affliction
has been identified and removed.
I've learned not to sweat
the petty things and not pet the
sweaty things in life.
And I've learned that age is a
very gratifying but high price to
pay for maturity.
Without breaking stride, I can
truthfully say, that if I had my life
to live over, I would try to mini-
mize the mistakes that I have
made while maximizing, at every
opportunity my ability to stimu-
late and motivate any and all per-
sons within my jurisdiction.
So on that stringent note, I'm
throwing caution to the winds
and I'm offering for your consid-
eration and approval my offer to
renew our, "Contract of Friend-
ship" for 2008. No action is re-
quired on your part except to ask
for your continuing participation
in assuring that our democratic
governing process that so many
brave, enduring Americans have
given their lives, hearts and souls
to preserve is not compromised
and continues as the rule of law
and justice by the people, for the
people and of the people.
Respectfully,
T. W. Bill Neville (Hendry

Guidelines for a winning catch


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Someone please explain a
great mystery to me. Why is it
that a person who is generally
honest in all things cannot give
you an accurate
description of
the fish he has
caught? I mean,
if you asked
this person to
tell you his net
financial worth,
he would tell the
truth. If asked John
to describe his Hicks
wife he would
do so objectively. But for the life
of him he cannot give an hon-
est, accurate description of a fish
he caught. When showing you
the length of the fish, he cannot
restrain his hands. And it's even
worse when he describes the fish
that got away.
We are right at the start of the
FLW fishing tournament in Clew-
iston. For the next few days, fish-
ermen and women from all over
the United States will be search-
ing Lake O for those special spots
where the fish are gathered and
.biting. With the Lake level like it
is, the winners will probably be
.those who find the glory holes
or special spots. The size of their
catches will be recorded, but
there will still be those stories of
the one that got away.


Having enjoyed fishing most
of my life, I decided I would offer
some guidelines from some of my
life lessons. As someone greater
than me once shared, "Those
who have ears, let them hear".
First, if you want to be a suc-
cessful fisherman, you don't look
for the most comfortable spot on
the lake. You go to where the fish
are, and then you make it as easy
and attractive as possible for the
fish to swallow your hook. Those
who repeatedly catch the most
fish are those who understand
fish and strategize accordingly.
In contrast, there are those
who just cast out in the waters
without a strategy, hoping some-
thing might bite. Occasionally
they might have an "even a blind
hog can find an acorn once in
a while" experience, but most
of the time those who have no
strategy have results that show it.
Those who just fish in the most
comfortable fishing spots have
the poorest catches.
Second, know what you are
fishing for. If you are fishing for
bass, there are certain baits that
are more effective than others. If
you are fishing, for Crappie, bass
bait would not give you the best
results. Sometimes one bait might
work better on one day and a dif-
ferent bait the next. Bigger fish
bite bigger baits, but you usually
have fewer strikes. Smaller fish
tend to bite more often. Knowing
what you are fishing for is impor-


tant to get the best catch.
Third, realize that there are go-
ing to be times when the fish will
not bite, regardless of what you
might offer them. Those that get
the best catches are those who
stick with it, even in slow times,
and don't give up.
If you think about it, there are
a lot of similarities between fish-
ing for fish and fishing for people.
First, it's important to go where
the people are. There are too
many churches who want to win
people to Christ as long as it can
be done in a comfortable way.
They have no real strategy, and
their results show it.
Second, it's important to know
what you are fishing for. Realize
that you would use a different bait
if you are fishing for children than
if you were fishing for youth or
adults. Don't be afraid to try dif-
ferent baits if you aren't getting
many nibbles on what you are
offering.
Third, don't give up. Some-
times the timing isn't right at the
moment to get the catch you are
desiring, but those who keep the
faith and keep at it will get results.
Regroup, re-strategize as neces-
sary following the first and sec-
ond guidelines, and then go out
again.
If you go where the fish are bit-
ing, knowing what you are fishing
for, using the appropriate baits,
and stay at it, statistics show you
will reap a winning catch.


.We stand on Him who is all truth


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The Christian Church does not
stand on fractions of truth but on
HIM who is all TRUTH! Individual
doctrines save no one; only Christ
saves! Does He not say, "I am THE
TRUTH?" When He is our solid
foundation we say, "For there are
no "truths" which are not inher-
ent in Him who is all truth.
We may listen to any man so
long as he makes plain to us truth.
We may profit from the findings of
Luther, Wesley, George Fox, Rog-
er Williams, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
Soren Kiefegaard, or any man or
group who call our attention to
what is essentially Christian; but
our faith may not rest on those, for
they are only fellow-servants. We
are indebted to anyone who can
- -reveal the revelation,of the Christ.
toius' It must be made clear, how-
ever, that WE STAND ON CHRIST!
We are a part of His Church and
His alone! While standing on Him
:who is Truth we freely admit we
-do not understand Him fully.
Is it necessary to comprehend
2the full depth of our Foundation
to be established in Him? Eternity
,is provided that we might have
opportunity to appreciate more
fully the Father and the Son.
The Church can never be es-
tablished on one or more facets
.of Truth. We may employ meth-
ods without being called Method-
ist; practice baptism (immersion)
without being called Baptists.
,We may admit to the rule of the
eldership (Presbyters) without
,being called Presbyterians; may
:ibe Catholic (universal) without
,being called Roman Catholics.
We my accept New Testament


episcopacy without being known
as Episcopalians. We may desire
the warmth of Pentecost and not
belong to the Pentecostal Church;
may be. friends without belonging
to the Friends Church. We may
admire Luther and encourage
him to assist our growing faith
without being Lutherans. In fact,
Luther said "Don't call yourselves
Lutherans, but call yourselves
Christians." Truth demands that
we be independent thinkers
without denominating ourselves;
Independents and cooperative
without naming ourselves Co-
operatives. We may be disciples
without the official title "Dis-
ciples"; may give ear to Thomas
and Alexander Campbell without
being "Campbellites." We admire
and love Paul but are not Paulites.
He asks us as well as the Corin-
thians: "Was Paul crucified for
you?" Our people have desired
to see things whole. We stand
on Christ and count as friends all
teachers, preachers and scholars
who refresh us in the truth and
make the Christ better known to
us. We may accept all men as
brothers in Adam, though we fol-
low none but Christ. We stand on
Christ or we stand on a founda-
tion of sand! To stand on Method
or Baptism or Episcopacy or any
other fraction of truth is essential-
ly idolatrous because it elevates
THINGS less than Christ to a level
with Him. We desire to stand on
ALL TRUTH!
Where we stand (and what
we believe) could be stated very
appropriately in these words of
John R. Bodo, as he paraphrased
the Gettysburg Address: "Four-
score and Seven Generations
ago, the Apostles brought forth


on another continent a new fel-
lowship, conceived in the liberty
of redeemed men, and dedicated
to the proposition that all men
are created for redemption. Now
and always, we are engaged in a
great, global war, testing whether
this fellowship, or any congrega-
tion thereof, is worthy to endure.
We are met on one small battle-
field of that war. We have come to
dedicate our common endeavor
as a living testimony for Him who
gave His life that we might live.
It is altogether fitting. But, in a
large sense, we cannot dedicate,
we cannot hallow this endeavor.
God's only Son, who died and
lives, having conquered death,
has consecrated it far above our
poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor long
remember, what we might do in
2008 A.D.; but it must never forget
what He did in 29 A.D. It is for us,
his soldiers, therefore to be dedi-
cated to the ongoing work which
He, Who ever goes before us, has
so clearly commanded. It is for us
also to be dedicated to the task at
hand; That from our Living Lord
we take increased devotion; That
we here highly resolve that He
shall not have died in vain; That
this congregation, under God,
shall have a new breadth of ser-
vice; And the Christian Church led
by Christ, striving for Christ shall
advance in all the earth."


Being a witness in spite of



myself; fear affirming faith


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A while back, I used to make
regular plane trips from Miami
with a stop in Tampa along the
way. The small,
propeller-driv-
en planes had
more turbu-
lence than larger
planes and the
crew explained
it was about the
thermal air cur-
rents across the Samuel S.
Everglades and Thomas
on Tampa Bay.
One flight found me next to a
young lady who became uncom-
fortable as the ride got bumpier.
She turned to me and told me
about her fear, but I assured her
that I had taken this particular
trip many times and all was nor-
mal. I explained about the air
currents and after a few minutes
she became calmer. I felt that I
had done a good deed in a way.
All was well as we arrived at
Tampa, but suddenly we took off
again. This was not normal and
I wondered what was going on.
My neighbor in the next seat told
me how helpful I had been to
her; she was afraid but my calm
presence and my explanation
helped her through. She thanked
me and I became very silent.
I was far less calm inside than
she imagined. The plane started
to descend once more and was
making a second approach at the


airport when it took off a. second
time. I was now concerned more
than before; and I looked at my
neighbor who was smiling and
calm. I looked out the window;
it seemed that there were ambu-
lances and fire trucks moving on
the field.
I looked at my now-serene
neighbor and remember that it
felt like blood was draining out
of my face. I was perspiring. We
came in for a third approach and
this time we landed; more gently
than I ever remembered landing
in the past. My heart rate returned
to normal as I walked to the front
of the plane and asked the crew
"What happened?" They told me
that an indicator light which indi-
cated the wheels were down had
failed to come on, and they had to
circle to confirm from the tower
that the wheels were in position
and, hopefully, locked in place.
My seatmate went blissfully on
her way and waved goodbye.
When everything was checked
out, we went onto the next leg
of the trip and I continued 6n-
anyway! As I thought about the
experience, I thought about risky
situations that we all encounter;
some people are better than oth-
ers at some things, not so good
at other risks. The lesson for me
to take from what happened was
to think what it is all about and
who is finally in charge.
There is a long discourse in 2
Corinthians (chapter 11, verses
16) when Paul talks about all
that has happened to him; being
beaten, being shipwrecked, be-


ing imprisoned, being exposed
to death, dangers from friends
and dangers from strangers, be-
ing hungry and thirsty, being
cold, and then having to worry
about how things were going
in the Churches he served. He
notes "If I must boast, I will boast
of the things that show my weak-
ness (v. 30)." He points out that
what has happened to him keeps
him from becoming conceited
(chapter 12, verse 7), he recog-
nizes that we are not self-made
people. In spite of it all, he is as-
sured by God that "My grace is
sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness."
Ultimately, it is God's grace
and presence that got me
through that day; that gets me
through, that gets us all through.
Nothing seems to be more a sign
of our mortality than being help-
lessly out of control when we'd
like very much to be in complete
control. It turns out our life is
not to be that way. We cannot
live without God's grace and His
looking after us. The things that
happen to us and leave us weak,
afraid; full of emotions, and yet
do not defeat or kill us, are the
times we can look back and say,
"Surely, God was with us!"
Apparently, I was a silent wit-
ness to a faith that it was going
to be all right on that flight, a wit-
ness to a faith to someone else I
really didn't know. I was witness-
ing to faith and hope even when
I didn't want to be. God uses our
fears and weaknesses too. You
better believe it!

Pomegranates are rich in nutrients Putthars, bk pn
2/ andr it bnm al nrano


If you want a little variety in
your diet, consider pomegran-
ates.
Pomegranates are bright red
fruit filled with juicy seeds. Pome-
granate juice is tart and has a
deep red color.
Pomegranates are high in anti-
oxidants, which help to rid itself
'.of toxins. Pomegranates are a
good source of potassium and Vi-
tamin C, and also contain calcium
and iron.
Until recently, the only thing I
knew about pomegranates came
from mythology. According to
Greek mythology, Persephone
was the daughter of Demeter,
goddess of the harvest. Hades, the
Greek god of the Underworld, fell
in love with her and kidnapped
her to be his wife, Demeter was
so upset when her daughter dis-
appeared that she refused to let
anything grow, the world turned
cold and barren, In order to save
the Earth, the Greek god Zeus,
sent the messenger Hermes to
Hades to make him release Perse-
phone, because she had not died,
and so should not have been in
the Underworld. Hades argued
that because Persephone had eat-
en part of a Pomegranate (some
legends say she ate pomegranate
seeds) she could not leave. They
finally agreed on a compromise.
Persephone could return to her
mother, but had to spend part of
each year with Hades, as she had
eaten part of a fruit of the Under-
world. According to the legend,
each year when Persephone re-
turns to Hades, Demeter is so sad
that the world grows cold with
winter.
Many cultures have legends
that include pomegranates. Ac-
cording to some Jewish texts,
it was a pomegranate not an
apple tree that caused all the
trouble in the Garden of Eden.
Pomegranates are red fruit


with Katrina Elsken

filled with "arils" little juice
sacks that each contain one
seed, Some people just want the
juice, but the seeds themselves
are considered edible and a good
source of fiber. The white mem-
brane that surrounds the arils is
bitter and not recommended, for
consumption, according to the
California Pomegranate Council.
In North America, the com-
mercial harvest season is from
October through January. They
grow best in hot, dry climates.
Pomegranates are not harvest-
ed until they are ripe, so if you
see fresh pomegranates for sale,
they are ready to eat. Choose the
best pomegranates by picking
them up, the heavier the fruit,
the more juice it contains.
The council suggests three
methods for juicing pomegran-
ates. If you juice your own, be
careful because, pomegranate
juice stains.
JUICER METHOD: Cut the
fresh pomegranate in half as you
would a grapefruit. We recom-
mend using a hand-press juicer
to juice a pomegranate. If you
use an electric juicer, take care
not to juice the membrane, so
that the juice remains sweet.
Strain the juice through a cheese-
cloth-lined strainer or sieve.
BLENDER METHOD: Place
1-1/2 to 2 cups seeds in a blend-
er; blend until liquefied. Pour
through a cheesecloth-lined
strainer or sieve.


A
Healthier
Life


1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon'
1/2 teaspoon pepper


ROLLING METHOD: On a
hard surface, press the palm of
your hand against a pomegranate
and gently roll to break all of the
arils inside (crackling stops when
all seed sacs have broken open).
Pierce the rind and squeeze out
juice or poke in a straw and press
to release juice. Rolling can be
done inside a plastic bag to con-
tain juice that leaks through the
skin.
The Pomegranate Council of-
fers these ideas for cooking with
pomegranates:
Pomegranate, Orange, .
Papaya and Kiwi Salad
1-1/2 teaspoons white wine
vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pep-
per flakes
1/4 cup olive oil
1-1/2 quarts mixed greens
2 oranges, peeled and sliced
2 medium papayas, peeled
and sliced
4 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 medium pomegranate, seed-
ed (about 3/4 cup)
To make dressing, combine
vinegar and next three ingredi-
ents; whisk in oil. Toss greens
with 2-1/2 tablespoons dressing;
arrange on a serving platter. Al-
ternate orange, papaya, and kiwi
slices over greens. Drizzle with
remaining dressing. Sprinkle with
pomegranate seeds.
Serves 6.
Chicken with Walnuts
And Pomegranate
2-3/4 pound fryer chicken
2 cups walnuts, finely
chopped
3 tablespoons shortening
3-1/2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon poultry season-


2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 large onion, finely chopped
1 cup fresh pomegranate juice
3 teaspoons butter
2 teaspoons tomato sauce
1 teaspoon sugar
Prepare chicken for frying. Sau-
te chicken with poultry seasoning
in shortening until light brown,
set aside. In a large pot saut6 the
onion in 3 teaspoon butter until
golden brown. Add tomato sauce
and saut6 for a few minutes. Add
walnuts to the onions and saut6
over medium heat about 5 min-
utes, stirring constantly. Add wa-
ter, remaining seasonings, lemon
juice, and pomegranate syrup.
Cover and let cook on low about
35 minutes. Taste the sauce and
add sugar if needed. Arrange
browned chicken pieces in the
sauce cover and let simmer 20-25
minutes. Serve over white rice.
Serves 6.

It's Girl Scout
Cookie Time
Remember, all things in mod-
eration. Remind yourself of the
importance of moderation when
Tempted with the delicious annual
treat of Girl Scout cookies. And re-
member to read the labels. When
you consider the dalorie content
and carbohydrates per serving,
make sure you know how many
cookies are considered a "serv-
ing." Also, remember that these
cookies freeze well, so you don't
have to eat the whole box "before
it gets stale."
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise rou-
tine, consult your doctor.
This is particularly important
if you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

RN graduation
On Dec. 12, eleven Palm Beach Community College (PBCC) graduating nurses attended a
graduation recognition luncheon at HRMC.
Hendry Regional Medical Center, along with Glades General Hospital, provides clinical

CCS students


enjoy 'Cowboy time'


Each morning at CCS, chapel
service is part of our daily sched-
ule. During our service we sing,
pray and share scriptures. We
invite different guests throughout
the year to speak to our children.
Last week we were visited by
Pastor Mike MacDowell, "Cow-
boy Mike". His ministry is Bull
Pit Outreach Ministry. He reaches
troubled teens through rodeo


boot camp and rodeo shows. The
children enjoyed his stories and
the teachers were impressed by
his willingness to encourage oth-
ers. Mrs. Salvatore's sixth and sev-
enth grade class invited "Cowboy
Mike" to sit in on some of their
class time. His visit encouraged
them to continue to do well in
school and to reach out to others.
Thank You Pastor Mike!

Around the area: Basketball season picking up


newszap.com
Free Speech Free Alds


INI/Naji Tobias
Focused
In a Jan. 10 rivalry basketball game between the Glades
Central Raiders and the Pahokee Blue Devils, senior point
guard Antavious Wilson attempts and makes this free throw
in the second half. Though he showed tenacity and heart in
this contest, it was not nearly enough as Glades Central won,
65-49. As of Jan. 14, Glades Central has an 8-5 record, while
Pahokee has a 7-8 record.


GLADES PRIMARY CARE


INI/Naji Tobias
Bank shot
Glades Central Raiders senior guard/forward Richard John-
son attempts a lay-up shot in the second half of their game
against the Clewiston Tigers. Richard actually makes the
bucket even though he was well-covered by a Tigers defend-
er in the Jan. 12 contest.


INI/Naji Tobias
Agent 'zero'
Glades Central senior forward Eddie Poole, wearing '0', led
the Raiders with 12 points and 31 rebounds in a convincing
r 65.49 win over the Pahokee Blue Devils on Jan. 10. Two days
later against the Clewiston Tigers, he was dominant through-
out the game in a 67-36 win Glades Central's second win
over Clewiston. Eddie is currently one of Palm Beach Coun-
ty's leading rebounders.

Play of the game
In the Jan. 12 contest between the Glades Central Raiders
and the Clewiston Tigers, the play of the game arguably
- was the uncontested two-hand dunk made by sophomore
center Clive Wolford in a 67-36 Raiders win to move them to
8-5 as of Jan. 14.


INI/Naji Tobias
Inbounds pass
Clewiston Tigers junior guard Nicholas Gutshall makes an in-
bounds pass in the second half, while Glades Central Raiders
senior guard James Ingram applies the pressure on him to
attempt a steal. No steal for James, but great defense overall
contributed heavily to a 67-36 Raiders dismantling over the
Tigers in the Jan. 12 contest.

Family members helped to design and decorate the inside
of the restaurant. Jaime Vallejo, manager, and Felix Perez,
one of the chefs, go over last-minute details before the grand
opening.


Opening
Continued From Page 1
"Even if I'm serving you two
tacos, I'm going to serve them to
you on a nice plate," the manager
said.
His father, Martin, won't settle
for anything less, he said.
"He didn't want to eat the
same food," Jaime said of his fa-
ther. "He wanted a restaurant to
be a little bit different."
The restaurant has two chefs
one of them is Felex Perez, a culi-
nary arts graduate who worked at
several Miami restaurants. Martin,
an old acquaintance, convinced
him to accept the job in Clewis-


ton.
Mr. Perez said he takes pride
in his work and looked forward
to serving residents at the restau-
rant.
As he sorted some last-minute
details before the grand opening
