County meeting and agenda


Proclaims
Black History Month
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Amid nearly 30
concerned constituents gathered
at Clewiston City Hall, the Hendry
County Board of Commissioners
reviewed important matters on
the agenda.
On February 12, 2008, a proc-
lamation was adopted. Dedicat-
ed to Florida Thomas of Hendry
County Libraries, Jessica White,


a Clewiston High School senior,
presented both the Board and
constituents alike with a Black
History Month proclamation to
be displayed in both Harlem and
Clewiston libraries.
Signed by Board Chair Janet B.
Taylor and Clerk Barbara Butler,
the proclamation was present-
ed to Hendry County Librarian
Florida Thomas to be displayed
in both Clewiston and Harlem
libraries.
Alvin Jackson from the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict presented projections relating


to restoration of the Everglades.
In doing so, the SFWMD plans
to provide community outreach
by helping small businesses, cre-
ating jobs and training the work-
force.
One of the most important el-
ements discussed was the desire
to hire locals to benefit from the
many employment opportunities
being created in connection with
the restoration effort.
"We put together partnerships
with educational institutions as
well as the workforce develop-
ment alliance," said Jackson. "To

date we have trained and gradu-
ated 41 construction workers
and [over 150] equipment opera-
tors."
Keeping with the topic of con-
struction, the old police substa-
tion located at the fairgrounds in
Clewiston faces demolition.
Vice Chair Bill Maddox sug-
gested the building not be demol-
ished. Maddox insists the build-
ing is worth saving.
Other members of the Board,
however, agree that even if the
building is restored to accom-
modate operating standards, the


restoration costs outweigh the
advantages of erecting a new sub-
station. "We've had two building
officials and an architect look at
that building that were [all] ex-
perts in their field and all of them
say you can't bring it up to cur-
rent codes," Commissioner Kevin
McCarthy stated. "The building is
over 50 percent destroyed."
There were 11 bids that called
for the demolition of the old po-
lice sub-station.

Warning system
will sound
testing patterns
CLEWISTON -- The Clew-
iston Police Department has
announced that it will test the
Early Warning System every
Saturday at noon.
The EWS will be used to
warn citizens of impending
danger. There are three sepa-
rate modes on the warning
system.


The first is a siren cycle
that fluctuates with duration
of about three minutes. This is
called the alert mode.
The alert mode will be used
to make citizens aware that
there is a possible impending
negative situation. Those situ-
ations could include weather,
flooding, forest fire or national
disaster.
The second alert mode is a
long, continual wail of the si-
ren with three-minute duration.

Holiday doesn't
have to be
expensive

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Roses are
red, violets are blue, it's Val-
entine's Day in Clewiston, but
what is there to do?
Flowers. Long walks. Poetry.
Chocolates. Just a few roman-
tic sentiments that make up
what some may call the perfect
Valentine's Day. Others, howev-
er, may have no idea what the
ideal Feb. 14, constitutes.


Luckily, local residents don't
have to look much further than
beneath their noses to execute
the quintessential St. Valentine's
experience.
Romance is subjective. But
the idea is virtually the same
nevertheless.
"Companions want to feel
appreciated as well as pam-
pered, and not just the women,"
says Samantha Fowler of Clew-
iston, a 42-year-old mother of
nine. "I love when my husband
takes that one particular day to
show his appreciation for me,
and I do the same for him."
Fowler says this year things
are a little different because
"everything is so expensive."


Well fret not penny pinch-
ers. Valentine's Day does not
have to be the second most ex-
pensive observance of the year
next to Christmas.
Local venues and sites cre-
ate a splendid Valentine's Day
setting.
For a full-on local escapade,
the Clewiston Inn furnishes a
Valentine's Getaway. This ad-
venture consists of luxurious
overnight accommodations
with fresh cut flowers, a box
of chocolates, two welcome
drinks from Everglades Lounge
(in house), candlelight dinner
for two, his and hers 30 minute

Lake Okeechobee drops below 10 feet


By Pete Gawda
Okeechobee News
How low will Lake Okeechobee
go?
On Monday, Feb. 11, the lake
level fell to 9.99 feet above sea
level. If predicted trends continue,
by early summer the lake will drop
lower than it ever has before. The
current lake level is more than four
feet below the average for this time
of year. This figure is even more
ominous when you realize that
last year it was mid-April before the
lake fell below 10 feet. At that time
the lake continued the downward
plunge until it reached a record low
of 8.82 on July 2, 2007.
It appears that this year the lake
could drop to an even lower level at
an earlier date.
Rainfall statistics for November
through January show an aver-
age of 6.68 inches across the 16
southern Florida counties served
by South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD). From No-
vember, 2007 through January of
this year the area wide average was
2.95 inches, which is 44 percent
of normal rainfall. The rainfall for
Okeechobee followed that trend.
According to Okeechobee County
Airport Director Vernon Gray, a to-
tal of 2.6 inches of rain fell between
November 2007 and January 2008.
The average for Okeechobee for


uourtesy/i-wMviu
Record low levels
Lake Okeechobee's water level may reach another record
low by the end of the "dry" season.
Big 0: Water shortage critical.


that period of time is 6.25.
While some areas on the east
coast have received substantial
amounts of rainfall, that water had
to be released to tide due to lack
of storage or pumping facilities
and this rainfall did not help Lake,
Okeechobee or the Everglades.
The National Oceanic and At-


mospheric Administration predict
that rainfall will continue below
normal for the area through the
end of April.
Charles Shinn, assistant director
for government and community
affairs for the Florida Farm Bureau
stated in his Feb. 8 newsletter that
models predict lake levels to drop


between 7 feet and 8.3 feet by June
1. If the lake drops to 7 feet that
means that 40 percent of the lake
surface area will be dry ground.
It will take more than a nor-
mal amount of rainfall for this
year to correct the problem. If the
area around and north of the lake
should receive a normal amount
of rainfall, the lake would only rise
two or three feet, still leaving a se-
vere water shortage.
However, abundant rainfall
north of ,the lake could also cause
problems for the water control
structures on the Kissimmee River
and other bodies of water flowing
into the lake. Extreme differences
in water levels on the upstream and
downstream sides of the structures
could cause excessive velocity of
the water. This velocity could scour
holes in the bottom and undermine
the structures. If this happens to an
upstream structure, it could cause
a domino effect on downstream
structures.
Charles Home, SFWMD's depu-
ty executive director of operations
and maintenance, has proposed
several solutions to the problem
including using downstream tem-
porary weirs and putting additional
rock riprap on the downstream
side of the structures.

sues Forum at www.newszap.com.

Quilt show coming


Saturday, Feb. 16


LAKEPORT That quaint Amer-
ican craft called quilting is alive
and thriving at North Lake Estates
in Lakeport. The quilters of North
Lake are planning their fourth quilt
show this February.
The NLE Quilters have been
active since the dub's inception in
February, 2002.
The group has had from 13 to
25 ladies, many of whom make the
trek to Florida each winter. While
husbands spend their spare time
fishing or golfing, the wives and
others gather to share their love of
the craft.
Skills range from rank amateur
(even "I've never quilted before"
types) to accomplished artisans
with decades of experience be-
hind them. But enthusiasm is
equally shared by all. At any given
time, one quilt is in a frame being
hand-quilted, quilting-bee fashion,
another is in a frame being basted,
and any number of quilt tops are
being pieced for later quilting.
This year's Quilt Show will be
held Saturday, Feb. 16, at the North
Lake Estates Clubhouse. The doors
will open at 9 a.m. Sandy Benning-
ton spearheads this project.
"We are hoping to show from 75


to 100 quilt projects this year. While
most of the quilts will be products
of our group's members, we have
invited others from the area to dis-
play their quilts, too," she said.
Besides the expected bed quilts,
other quilted items will be shown.
Past shows have displayed wall
hangings, table runners, clothing,
purses and many other items.
The highlight of the show is al-
ways the raffling of a hand-quilted
bed quilt. This year's offering is a
dazzling burgundy, pink and green
Star Quilt. It is queen/king sized.
Along with showing quilts and
quilted projects, individuals will be
offering quilted and handcrafted
items for sale. Club member Pat
Gaver has been working hard on
a variety of carry-alls, microwave
potato holders and Bingo cush-
ions. Janet Mitchell is embroidering
dish towels and pot holders. Others
have produced table runners, purs-
es, placemats and pillows.
Everyone is invited to attend the
quilt show, Feb. 16.,Times are from
9 a.m. until 3 p.m. Door prizes will
be awarded every hour on the hour.
The raffle quilt will be given at the
end of the show winner doesn't
have to be present.

of Swamp cabbage is the nam-
ing of the family of the year.
This year's honor is bestowed
upon the survivors of the Jim-
my Pendry Family.
Jimmy and Louise had six
children, five of which survive,
including Donald, Mattiele-
na, James, Helen and Marva.
Many years ago, Jimmy Pendry
worked with the WPA in build-
ing State Road 80 through La-
Belle. He was a volunteer fire
"chief, and the family raised
chickens and delivered fresh


eggs to the B&B Market (now
the U-Save) as well as to the La-
Belle Trading Post.
This year, the bridge will stay
open and will not close for the
parade. This is due to new rul-
ings of FDOT (Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation).
For the duration of the pa-
rade, beginning at 9:30 a.m.,
traffic will be closed on Route
80 at Cowboy Way, which will
be the alternate route for Route
80 for the duration of the pa-
rade.
Traffic on Route 29 will flow
as usual. If anyone has any
questions about these chang-
es, please call the Chamber of
Commerce which has all the
answers. The number is (863)-
675-0125.
A list of RV Campgrounds
is available at the Chamber of
Commerce, corner of Bridge
St. and SR Road 80, as well as
on the Hendry County Tourism
Website.
Spaces are also available at
the The Glades, a new facility

of LaBelle, a large on-the-river
facility located in the area be-
tween the River and Route 80;
and south of LaBelle accom-
modations are available at
Palm and Pines on Route 29.
Other RV accommodations in-
clude Whisper Creek on Route

well as games, gifts and novel-

Those were the sounds that filled First United Methodist
Church parking lot as Big Lake Cruisers came cruising
in to share with our scout's the history of how cars have
advanced over the last several decades. The month of
January's theme was Cub Scout Car Show; the boys were
in total amazement, as they were able to sit in the cars
and pretend to drive them, at their very own private car
show. We would like to thank Big Lake Cruisers members
for taking the time to make a difference in a scout's life. In
addition, we would like to thank Home Depot who donated
truck kits for the boys to build and race. All boys in first
through fifth grades are welcomed to join us at First United
Methodist Church at 6 p.m. on Thursdays. Cub Scout Pack
667 is where character counts and adventure begins.

Business
By:
Sean Moore


Hiring the right people
Since the flu season did not
pass me over, I have been looking
for a silver lining during my sick
time at home. I did find some-
thing that I could do while being
sick make a point in my article!
This morning when I woke up
for work, I decided: "I can't go to
work!" So I grabbed my phone
to call my boss and cancelled
another appearance I had set for
the afternoon. I am scheduled to
teach a class tonight and I know I
can have someone fill in for me,
or I can cancel it all together and
figure out how to make up for it
dqwn the road.
If you are one of the people
that have taken the challenge
to start your own business, you
may not get the luxury of stay-
ing home. This is often one of
the most overlooked parts of be-
ing a business owner. You start
the business to have your free-
dom from that boss and endless
stream of memos and emails, but
in the end you may not have the
freedom you thought you would.
Late deliveries, sick employees,
and even days that you are sick
but have to go in anyway, all cut
into that freedom time because in


most cases you as the owner are
the one responsible for filling in
that gap.
Do you have options? Of
course you do! You could not
open that day because you are ill.
Then you have to hope you can
still make the monthly goals or
that you don't alienate your loyal
customers that expect you to be
open. You could go in and work
while you are feeling bad. Some-
times, that is not even an option.
Then there is one great option,
one that I have stressed time and
time again, hire the right people! If
you have a properly trained sales
staff or service team, the busi-
ness should be able to run just
as smoothly when you are not
there as when you are. It's when
you just hire someone to have a
body on the floor that a business
gets in trouble. The customers get
angry, maybe money disappears
or is handled incorrectly. We all
need time to get ourselves healthy
when we are sick.
Taking the time to make sure
you have hired the right people
will allow you the opportunity to
leave the store for meetings, train-
ing, or to be able to blow your
nose in private.

Super !.rUIay: National Signing Day '08


INI/Naji Tobias

Headed for the 'U'
At Pahokee High School on Wednesday, Feb. 6, National
Signing Day, the family of University of Miami-bound Micanor
Regis came to the signing ceremony to celebrate the momen-
tous occasion. Accompanying Micanor are his aunt, Earthal-
ene Boldin, his cousin and younger brother; fellow teammates
on the state championship winning Pahokee Blue Devils, Ar-
tis Ford and Tommy Regis; his mother, Tommycina Regis and
Talissia Johnson, his girlfriend. The family may very well be
celebrating this moment with a future NFL star, who many
believe has a very legitimate chance to get there.


INI/Naji Tobias

Pahokee Signing Day
Here at the signing table are Jatavious Miller, Artis Evans,
Jr., Anthony Sheppard, Jr. and Micanor Regis. The four Class
2B All-State football recruits signed commitments on Feb. 6,
to West Virginia University, Alcorn State University, Western
Kentucky University and the University of Miami, respectively.
Notable players that have yet to sign with a college but will do
so at a later time, according to head coach, Blaze Thompson,
are Martavious Odoms, Antavious Wilson, Marcus Washing-
ton and Chris Dent.


INI/Naji Tobias

Big decision
Glades Central offensive lineman Xavier McKenzie, who ini-
tially wasn't sure if he was going to get any scholarship offers
before National Signing Day, told the audience that his heart
led him to sign with Stillman College, a Division II School in
Tuscaloosa, Ala. It was a very emotional day for Xavier, espe-
cially considering the fact that at one point, he was consid-
ered one of the nation's top college recruits. But in the end,
Xavier did not allow a rash of injuries to stop him from taking
one step closer to his ultimate dream: playing in the NFL. His
two biggest supporters are, of course, his mother, Barbara
James and his stepfather, Melvin James.

canor Regis. For more National Signing Day photos, please

INI/Najil Tobias

Moving on
Western Kentucky University may have been the only scholar-
ship offer for Anthony Sheppard, but he certainly took it and
plans to make the most of his college opportunities and turn
his doubters into believers once he gets to play quarterback
there. Anthony's family is very happy that he'll be moving on


INI/Naji Tobias

Decisions, decisions
It came down to Florida Atlantic University and West Virginia
University, but Jatavious Miller is happy that his family sup-
ports the decision to move on to West Virginia, a Big East
school which is currently one of the best college football
teams in the country. Here with Jatavious are his. uncle, Zeran
Engram, his mother, Lynora Fulmore and his stepmother, for-
mer Pahokee athletic director Malissa McAuley.


INI/Naji Tobias

Bright future ahead
Artis Evans, Jr. made his decision to play defensive end at
Alcorn State University. Now, he's hoping to make a huge im-
pact there and have a chance to make it to the NFL. Backing
up his choice are his father, Artis Evans, Sr. and his uncle,
Blue Devils defensive coordinator Rick Lammons.

Super e n esday: National Signing Day '08


INI/Naji Tobias

Stars at Glades Central
There were four seniors on the Glades Central football team who signed letters of intent to
play college football. They were all smiles as theirfellow schoolmates, teachers and families
celebrated with them. Jarien Moreland committed to the University of Central Florida, while
Travis Benjamin, Eddie Poole and Xavier McKenzie are headed for the University of Miami,
Rutgers University and Stillman College, respectively. The celebration was held at the audi-
torium on Feb. 6 National Signing Day.


At the National Signing Day event, held on Feb. 6, maybe the best part of the festivities
was when the father-son duos of Anthony Sheppard Sr. and Jr., Don Thompson and Blaze
Thompson debated on which state championship team was better. Something that has never
happened before in the Glades area, Don Thompson coached the 1989 state championship
team, which featured Anthony Sheppard, Sr., the team's quarterback and 18 years later, the
sons, head coach Blaze Thompson and quarterback Anthony Sheppard, Jr., also won a state
championship together. That's nothing short of amazing.


INI/Naji Tobias
All about the Benjamin
Travis Benjamin brought five of his closest family members
to the Feb. 6, National Signing Day event at Glades Central
High School. Celebrating with the University of Miami-bound
wide receiver are Travis' grandmother, Jacqueline Stewart;
his aunt, Deborah Stewart; his mother, Cynthia Stewart, who
is holding his daughter, Promyse and his cousin, Javian Bry-
ant.


INI/Naji Tobias

At the signing
In the auditorium at Pahokee High School, four Blue Devils
signed letters of intent to play college football. In the front
are college football recruits Jatavious Miller, who signed with
West Virginia University, Artis Evans, an Alcorn State Univer-
sity commit, Anthony Sheppard, who will go on to Western
Kentucky University and Micanor Regis, a highly touted de-
fensive tackle who will be representing the 'U' (University
of Miami). Standing in the rear are Lynora Fulmore, Malissa
McAuley, Artis Ford, Sr., Anthony Sheppard, Sr., Terrina Sha-
hid, Shack Shahid, Tommycina Regis and Earthalene Boldin.
The event was held on Feb. 6.


INI/Naji Tobias

Heading north
Eddie Poole, Jr., the Rutgers-bound wide receiver, could not
be any happier in his life so far, as he finally got to show every-
one he was heading north to the New Jersey school. Eddie's
parents, Janice Jarrell and Eddie Poole, Sr., showed that they
are ecstatic he made a decision that he's very comfortable
with. National Signing Day was on Feb. 6. For more National
Signing Day photos, please visit http://photos.newszap.com.

NI/Najil Tobias
Georgia bound
A huge surprise occurred at Clewiston High School during
National Signing Day on Feb. 6. It was originally thought
that two Tigers senior football players would sign let-
ters of intent. No one was able to figure out who those
two were because it only turned to be one. It wasn't what
anybody would've thought, especially not after it was re-
vealed that Tigers offensive lineman Chris Bell would sign
with Georgia Military College, a junior college located in
Milledgeville, Ga.
For someone who, just a few months ago, didn't think he
would play college football, this turned out to be a great
move. Chris said that he decided to go this route because
even though basketball is his favorite sport, he knew that
he would've had to give it up after high school. What's re-
ally amazing is that this college just recently looked at a
highlight tape of the Clewiston-Bishop Verot playoff game
and came away very impressed, especially considering
that the college was originally looking for someone else.

Sports News in Brief


Clewiston racer t
akes two wins
Hendry County Speedway held
the Mini Sprint Winter Nationals
on Feb. 7-9. There was a turnout
of drivers from all over the coun-
try on hand in three divisions of
sprints. On Thursday night, Jim
Young from Johnstown, Pa., filled
in as a substitute driver in the #15
and took the feature win for the
270 class. Lex Burritt from Red-
ding Conn., took the win in the
750 class. Derek Campbell from
Flat Rock, Ill. took the win in the
1200 class.
Friday Mother Nature was the
first one on the track. Rain caused
a 'delay in the start of the event.
Track officials Larry Thacker and
Eddie Campbell worked the track
into some of the best conditions
I have ever seen at the track. The
Mini Sprints went out first and the
track developed into a smooth
tacky surface. Sean McAndrew
from Apollo, Pa., was back behind
the wheel of the # 15 and took the
car to another win. Brock Zearfoss
from Jonestown, Pa., won the 750
class.
Hud Horton from German-
town, Ohio, took the win in the
1200 class.
The Street Stocks took the track
after the sprints. Jesse Brown of


Clewiston took the win. Chase
Goodson came out on top of the
Mini Stock Division. Brian Mor-
gan had the car to beat in the
Pure Stock Division. The .Limited
Late Models were shown the way
around the track by Tim Powers.
Speedway officials scrambled."
quickly on Saturday night, moving
the show along quickly to avoid a
rainout. Racing ended around 9
p.m. with all divisions completing
there scheduled races. Jim Young
found his way back to victory lane
as a substitute for McAndrew.
Jesse Teed of Christmas won the
750 class. Derek Campbell took
his second win of the weekend in
the 1200 class. Once again Jesse
Brown drove to a victory in the
Street Stocks. Roger Crouse battled
with Shan Smith to take the win in
the Late Model Division. Trouble
with Tim Powers's car opened the
door for Tommy Evanoski to take
the win in the Limited Late Models.
Jason Intoppa drove away with the
win in the Mini Stock Division.
Special thanks to John Crad-

How do you love a porcupine?


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Loving people isn't always
easy. In fact, sometimes it is
downright hard. That's a hard
fact even on Valentine's Day. It's
not easy to love those who have
been a source of heartache,
abuse, rejection, or loneliness.
How do you love people who
cause you pain? Conventional
wisdom says a lack of love im-
plies a lack of effort, so we try
harder, dig deeper, strain more.
But could the lack of love be
from something else? Could we
be skipping an essential step?
Could it be that the first step of
love needs to be toward Him
and not toward them? Some-
times even preachers have been
guilty of skipping this first step.
We tell our church families to
love each other. Be patient, kind,
forgiving. But instructing people
to love without telling them they
are loved is like telling people to
write a check without making a
deposit into their accounts. No
wonder so many relationships
are overdrawn.
We are told to love, and we
know from the scriptures that
God wants us to love, and we
know that it's easy to love those
who love us, but how can we be
kind to those who are unkind
to us? How can we love those
who have really struck out and


betrayed us? How can we be
patient with people who have
the warmth of a vulture and the
tenderness of
a porcupine?
We want to.
We long to. But
how can we?
The secret of
loving is living
loved. Love's
profit lies in its
practice. One of John
my favorite de- Hicks
scriptions of the practice of love
is found in I Corinthians 13 and
especially verses 4-8.
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not
boast, it is not proud. It is not
rude, it is not self-seeking, it is
not easily angered; it keeps no
record of wrongs. Love does not
delight in evil but rejoices with
the truth. It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres. Love never
fails."
Some years ago, someone in-
vited me to put my name in this
passage wherever love was. I
did. John is patient, John is kind.
John does not envy, John does
not boast John is not proud,
John is not rude, is not easily
angered.
It made this passage more
personal for me, and these are
great aspirations, but the reality
is that I don't meet these stan-


dards all of the time. Few of us
do.
Rather than letting this Scrip-
ture remind us of a love we can't
produce, let's kick it up a notch
and let it remind us of a love we
can not resist a love that fills us
up and overflows the love of
God. Try inserting Jesus' name
in place of the word "love" and
see if it rings true.
"Jesus is patient, Jesus love
is kind. Jesus does not envy, Je-
sus does not boast, Jesus is not
proud. Jesus is not rude, Jesus
is not self-seeking, Jesus is not
easily angered, Jesus keeps no
record of wrongs. Jesus does
not delight in evil but rejoices
with the truth. Jesus always
protects, always trusts, always
hopes, always perseveres. Jesus
never fails."
That's God's love for us!
Some thirst heavily for this type
of love. Some don't even know
how thirsty they are. All of us
need it. Drink this in: "God loves
you Personally, Powerfully,
Passionately."
Others have promised and
failed, but God has promised
and succeeded. He loves us
with an unfailing everlasting
love. And His love;-if you will let
it, can fill you and leave you with
a love that is not only filling, but
fulfilling, and a love that will
overflow to love others even
those porcupines in our lives.


Valentine's Day: Love, healing,


laying foundations, God at work


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
If there is anything that cuts
across all nationalities, cultures,
peoples, times in history, hu-
man conditions; it is "love." My
library includes several books on
the topic, none of them offer any
definitive answers but the scrip-
tures have some guides for us
all. I had the words from 1 Corin-
thians 13 framed and hanging in
my office. One of the persons do-
ing his community service time
while on probation was struck
by them.
He hadn't ever been a church-
goer or involved in "religion" but
began to ask questions. I took the
plaque off of the wall and made
him a copy; he shared it with his
girlfriend.
There are those who have
become cynical or bitter; others
who misunderstand what love
requires, become possessive or
jealous; and they miss some-
thing.
I knew of a young man who
met the girl of his dreams, fell
in love, and then prepared to
meet the girl's family. His fian-
c6e warned him that it wouldn't
go easily; she was an only child
and her mother spoke about her
daughter as "my possession."
They met and then the mother


began to talk about her belief in
divorce, telling the young. man
that she be-
lieved in it and,
if things didn't
work out, well- a
that would be -' +."'"
too bad but
he'd have to get
used to the idea
(Mother had
been married Samuel S.
to her one-and- Thomas
only for many,
many years). The young man
told the potential mother-in-law-
to-be that it might mean that
he'd have to face the prospect of
being single for the rest of his life
if things didn't work out, because
he didn't believe in divorce and
that would be his only option.
"Mother" got angrier; he didn't
rise to the bait! He had deflect-
ed an assault on the hopes and
dreams the couple shared and
avoided a head-on confrontation
and shouting match where there
needed to be open doors and the
basis for a future relationship.
' The Lord encountered a de-
moniac who worships Him but
who pleads, "I adjure you, by
God, not to' torment me (Mark
5:7)." This is a story about a man
who desperately needs others
but is afraid even of the God of
love. The demons that inhab-
ited the tormented man are sent


packing into a herd of swine.
They will meet their demise af-
terward, but the demoniac is
not placed in the middle of a
struggle between them and the
one whose love will heal him.
There was no wrestling match
between a tormented soul and
the forces of good and evil; the
evil is deflected and love shows
forth. I watch people who avoid
taking sides in conflicts. They are
the ones who will get a hearing
when the hard questions are
asked; they are the ones who will
be able to give something to the
tormented.
Our capacity to see beyond
the threats and challenges, to
understand that "love is patient,
love is kind, does not envy, does
not boast, is not proud, is not
rude, is not self-seeking, is not
easily angered, keeps no record
of wrongs, rejoices with the
truth, always protects, always
trusts, always hopes, always per-
severes. (1 Corinthians 13:4f0"
Someone has said, "We need to
be loved the most when we're
the most unlovable" and those
who are capable of that kind of
love share a secret with all of
those who believe in love; bring
healing, lay foundations, begin
to see the very nature of God
Himself at work in a difficult and
trying world.


During the month


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The month of February has
long held special meaning for
sweethearts, husbands and
wives, families, and friends. It has
often been referred to as "LOVE

drawn toward an awareness of
feelings for others, and we make
special efforts to express these
feelings. Many a verse and lyric

Public Service Announcement

Automated Sanitation

For Residential Customers

Dear Resident. The City of Clewiston announces a new Automated Sanitation Service
to all residential customers beginning during March 2008. Automated collection of
household garbage is a technologically advanced refuse collection system and is called
"automated" because a special truck, equipped with a mechanical/robotic arm, auto-
matically lifts and empties a city-provided "tipper" cart without the driver ever leaving the
cab of the truck. The automated system is designed to reduce operational cost, im-
prove service efficiency, make the task of disposing of garbage cleaner for the resi-
dents, improve the appearance of the city, and greatly reduce the injury potential for city
employees. Other general information follows:

HOMEOWNER REQUIREMENTS

Tipper Carts will be delivered to each residence by the end of February 2008 and
use of the carts must start immediately upon delivery. Twice a week pick will contin-
ue and service days will not change. Service rates will not change. With the Automated
System, the City will no longer provide back yard service other than for qualified
"disability" customers.

All customers must roll their city-provided tipper carts to curbside on service day.
No other garbage containers may be used for collection. The cart is to be placed at
the street by 6:00 AM on the morning of collection and must be removed from the
street before 7:00 PM on collection day. Carts are not to be left at the street at any
other time. -Customers who leave the cart at street side in violation of this policy will be
subject to a fine of not less than $25.00.

All household refuse/garbage items must be placed within the cart. It is recommend-
ed that garbage items be bagged and tied, then deposited in the cart. Cardboard boxes
should be broken down so they take less room in the cart. Do not overfill the cart to
the extent the lid will not fully close. If the lid is not closed, garbage will spill to road so
the container may not be emptied. Items not in the cart will not be picked up and no
other waste items except horticulture or "special pick up" goods may be placed at curb-
side for city services.

The cart must be placed within 3 feet of the curb at least 4 feet from any tree, pole,
mailbox, fire hydrant, etc, and at least 10 feet away from any cars parked in the street.
Place the cart so the wheels and the handle face toward the house.

Except on service day, the cart must be stored in the backyard. garage, or other con-
venient location so it is not discernable from any street.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What if my cart is damaged or stolen? The carts are the property of the City of Cle-
wiston and each one is assigned an address and serial number. All reports of damage
or theft will be investigated by calling the Public Works Dept Office at 983-1471. Re-
pairs or replacements will be made as needed.

May I use refuse containers other than the city provided tipper cart? No, the auto-
mated truck will only pick up city issued containers. Customers will have a, choice of a
96 gallon or a 65 gallon cart.

What kinds of refuse can I put in the Automated Garbage Container? Only residential
refuse or solid waste resulting from normal housekeeping activities of a dwelling unit
may be placed within the container.
Does the city provide assisted and / or rear door collection with the automated gar-
bage container? Yes, the City provides "disability service" when residents provide a
doctor's statement informing us that a resident is unable to take their garbage to the
street. Once we have received that statement, we will begin your assisted service.

What if one cart is not enough for our weekly garbage? Additional carts may be pur-
chased from the City. This is a one-time user fee and the cart remains the property of
the City. If a resident moves to another location within the city, the extra purchased cart
may be taken, otherwise, the cart stays at the current address.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The City will only pick up the automated service cart that is as-
signed to your particular residence by the Public Works Department. All other bags,
cans, containers or carts will not be picked up. PLEASE CONTACT THE CITY PUB-
LIC WORKS DEPARTMENT AT 983-1471 FOR ANY QUESTIONS.

SOUTH FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT
IRRIGATION WATER USE PERMIT RENEWAL WORKSHOP
The South Florida Water Management District will begin the water use permit renew-
al process for the Kissimmee Basin, which includes portions of Glades, High-
lands, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola and Polk counties. All individual and major
g general water use permits for irrigation must be renewed by the dates established
for each of the basins. Since Water Use Permits have a finite duration, they must
be renewed in order to re-establish the right to use water. Applications for permit
renewals will be evaluated against criteria contained in updated rules.
In order te explain the revised rules and renewal process, an informational workshop
for the Basin will be held at the District's Okeechobee Service Center located at
205 North Parrot Avenue (Suite 201) in Okeechobee. The workshop will be on
February 27th beginning at 10:00 a.m. in the auditorium. All of the workshops are
scheduled to inform permit holders ot the renewal process, processing fees,
deadlines and to assist with any problems or questions.
Additional information can be found on the Water Use Permit Renewal page on the
District web site at www.swmd.Goov or by calling the informational hotline at
(800) 547-2694.

Annual Pro Steadman Scholarship Fund cake auction set


The male celebrity cake auc-
tion will take place on Thursday,
Feb. 14, at the Hendry County Fair-
grounds beginning at 6:30 p.m. in
the Entertainment Pavilion. Please
come out and give your support
to raise money for the Pro Stead-
man 4-H Scholarship Fund.
The Pro Steadman Scholarship
Fund was started as a community
project in honor of Mrs. Pro Stead-


man in 1990. Pro" was the moth-
er of five 4-H'ers, a leader for ten
years, and was very active in all
sectors of the 4-H program. She
believed in the 4-H organization
and seeing it reach its full poten-
tial for bringing families together
and keeping members interested
in worthwhile projects. She was
diagnosed with ALS (commonly
kpown as Lou Gehrig's disease)


in May of 1988. Throughout her
struggle with the disease, she
maintained her interest and in-
volvement in youth programs as
much as she physically could. She
died in December of 1992, but still
lives on in the hearts of the many
that she influenced.
The cake auction raises money
to award two 4-H members with
college scholarships in the name


of the late Pro Steadman. Many
male "celebrities" from our local
community will be baking a cake
to benefit the Pro Steadman 4-H
Scholarship Fund. The Auctioneer
of the evening will be Mr. Lionel
Beatty.

Eastside Elementary
Dr. Frank
Mraz, an as-
tronomer from
r Southwest
Florida Astro-
nomical Soci-
ety, presented
the principal of Eastside Elemen-
tary, Mara Duke, with a model of
the Moon sent to us from NASA as
a gift for a Moon Seminar held at
Eastside Elementary in December.
About one hundred students rang-
ing in age from five to fifty attended
the event even though there were
monsoonal rains that night. The
program, an effort put forth by the
Eastside Science Club and teach-
ers, Mrs. Potter, Mrs. Crawford,
Mrs. Ruiz, and Mr. Hubbard, was
geared to fourth and fifth graders,
and had originally planned to view
the moon in its first quarter phase
through a telescope.
Unfortunately due to the rain,
the event was moved into the caf-
eteria where Dr. Mraz used scale
models of the Earth, Moon, and
the Sun to demonstrate the phases


of the Moon: This was great prac-
tice as on the FCAT fifth graders are
expected to look at a diagram and
determine Based on the arrange-
ment of the three what phase the
Moon is in at that given moment.
Students were encouraged to par-
ticipate in the hands on demonstra-
tion that lasted about an hour. The
professor then gave the students a
complete lesson on the alignment
of the Earth, Moon, and Sun dur-
ing solar and lunar eclipses. The
final part of the program was a
question and answer period that
left everyone wondering if out in
the vastness of the night sky there
is some other life form watching
us as we are searching for them.
Dr. Mraz will be returning to
Eastside Elementary on Feb. 22,
to view the Moon through his tele-
scope. The Science Club is hoping
that this time the weather will co-
operate so that they can do some
lunar viewing, and learn more
about space.
The Science Club at East-
side Elementary School
Who says learning cannot be
fun? The Science Club at Eastside
Elementary School is taking a
school wide survey to determine
the most liked name for each of
three chickens hatched in Mr.
Hubbard's Classroom just before
the holiday break. The members
have spent the last two weeks af-
ter school designing the survey,
preparing posters, making bal-
lots, and writing announcements
aimed at enticing the entire stu-
dent body to participate in the bal-
loting. This is being used as a fund-
raiser for the Science Club as each
vote cost 10 cents. The proceeds
are being used to purchase more
poles and planks for our pineland
fence. After a week's worth of sur-
veying, the students will count the
ballots, take note of voter infor-
mation from the ballot, and draw
graphs to demonstrate which of
the six names were favored by the
student body. Other graphs will
display who voted more girls vers-
es boys, and which class voted the
most. The chickens will be avail-
able for viewing on Friday morn-
ing along with these graphs and
their birth certificates so students
can see their official names.
On Jan. 31, Science Club
members enjoyed a visit from
Steve Buczynski, the Clewiston
area Audubon Representative. He
graciously came to instruct the
members on how to participate
in the Great Backyard Bird Count
which will take place Feb. 15-18.
Mr. Buczynski discussed the his-
tory of the Audubon Society, the
importance of being involved in
this bird count, and keyed out the
most common birds found in our
area. He brought along binocu-
lars, checklists and field guides in
order to display the tools Audubon
members use in order to conduct
this nation wide survey. The Sci-
ence Club members had the op-
portunity to use these tools as they
practiced identifying some of the
birds visiting Eastside's pineland.
Science Club members, as well
as Science Club co-sponsors, Mrs.
Crawford and Mr. Hubbard, are
also looking forward to partici-
pating in this survey. If you would
like to participate in The Great
Backyard Bird Count, go to: http://

Man burned in mobile home fire


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE -A man was burned
on Friday, Feb. 8 at approximately
2 p.m., while working on his
brother's car, according to the fire
rescue.
Don DeLucia, the captain and
public information officer for the
Palm Beach County Fire Rescue,
said that the accidental fire oc-
curred while the victim was at-
tempting to repair a fuel pump.
The pump, according to the


fire rescue captain, was near the
engine compartment of the car.
"Apparently, there was an
accidental spark that ignited
the gasoline,"- Captain DeLucia
said. "When that happened, the
patient's brother grabbed the
hose, wet down the patient and
knocked the fire down."
The mobile home, located at
501 Golden Place, suffered mini-
mal damage, fire rescue officials
said.
According to Teri Barbera, the
spokeswoman for the Palm Beach


County Sheriff's Office, deputies
stood by the scene as they were
waiting for the fire marshal to de-
termine the cause of the incident.
The victim was subsequently
airlifted via Trauma Hawk to St.
Mary's Hospital due to the sever*
ity of the burns, fire rescue offi-
cials said.
The fire rescue did not release
any identification of the victim, as
it is prohibited by HIPPA regulari
tions, Captain DeLucia said.
Staff Writer Nail Tobias can be

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?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

Legends of


the Heart
Saint Valentine's Day
By Nancy Dale
No other occasion is so roman-
tically linked to "love" than "St.
Valentine's Day," but who is this.
saintly figure who immortalized
"love" throughout the ages?
When the despot Emperor
Claudius II ruled Rome, he was
not so enamored with mythologi-
cal goddess of love and ordered
all Roman soldiers not to marry.
He wanted the soldiers loyal to the
army, not to their spouses.. But de-
slite his decree, Roman priest Val-
entine defied the edict and married
couples secretly. When his defiance
was discovered, he was arrested
and beheaded on Feb. 14.
In honor of St. Valentine's dedi-
cation to "love," Valentine's Day be-
came a tradition.
Valentine's Day continues to be
celebrated in many traditions all
over the world. In Europe, peasants
acknowledge their beloved by gift-
ing them with paper valentines. In
Wales, "love spoons" are inscribed
with romantic pictures believed to
open the heart.
Other Valentine's Day legends
date back to the Middle Ages. In the
1400s, when Christopher Colum-
bus launched his long voyages to
the New World, sailors mourned
their absences writing love songs
and verses, the oldest known senti-
ments preserved in the British Mu-
seum.
Throughout the ages, Valen-
tine's Day. special occasion
set-aside toce "te the love vibes
that grip the heart.

she admitted that over the years
"the children have taught me the

their teacher with big eyes, wait-

she said.
Superintendent of Hendry

the audience that the ten teach-

represented some of the best
of 520 district teachers respon-

of a child from a different culture
striving to achieve in an American
school. The daughter of Leba-
nese immigrants, Ms. Thomas
compared her experience to that
of many Hendry County students
and shared how important the
role of teacher is, not just to those
students but to their families as
well.
She took the time to point out
some of the striking individual
traits of each of the county's ten
school Golden Apple teachers.
To summarize, Ms. Thomas told
teachers to be proud of being edu-
cators; that education is a tremen-
dous responsibility to prepare stu-
dents for the next step; and that
the satisfaction of successfully
teaching is indescribable.
Each Golden Apple nominee
was introduced by a current or
former student. LES' Ginger Kise-
la was introduced by her daugh-
ter, Katie, who is now a junior at
LaBelle High School. Katie told
the audience her mother keeps
a journal of precious moments
with her students.
Matthew Robertson said his
teacher, Alice McVay, taught him
to be a good friend and student.
EES's Mike Hubbard was intro-
duced by Amanda Ortiz who said
he is an outstanding teacher who
helps untangle the confusion of
school work and has taught her
the importance of recycling.

Mr. Highsmith says there are
romantic spots throughout the

his students to do the right thing

you can't help but pay attention
to Mr. Kemp's teaching delivery
which includes everything from
jumping on tables to a few inept
dance steps.

students to.

officer with the Osceola County
