Auxiliary officers wanted


Chief: Auxiliary force
an asset to the city
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Providing help
in time of need should be every
good American's aspiration. In
Clewiston, the opportunity to do
that is right around the corner in


the police's auxiliary force.
The city of Clewiston is hop-
ing that more residents will take
up the cause to provide a helping
hand. The police department is
actively recruiting new members
to its auxiliary force.
According to Don Gutshall,
Clewiston police chief, his as-
sistant chief, in conjunction with


the Hendry County Sheriff's Of-
fice, is preparing to hold training
sessions over the next few weeks
to bring on additional people on
board through the auxiliary pro-
gram.
The requisites for becoming
an auxiliary officer include hav-
ing no felony arrests on record
and a clean driving history.


The difference between an
auxiliary officer and a regular
police officer are few, but im-
portant. An auxiliary officer must
complete an abbreviated training
program -- including self-defense
and firearms training -- and then
has the power to arrest a sus-
pect, wear a uniform and carry
a gun. An auxiliary officer must

at all times operate alongside a
regular officer, however.
The department currently
has about a handful of officers
who save the city approximately
$15,000 each year through their
volunteer work, the chief said.
"We would like to have 10 or

Billie Swamp Safari

Location boasts
showcase of
South Florida's
natural beauty
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
BIG CYPRESS -- Inarguably,
the thing that makes South
Florida South Florida is its rich
ecosystem. The Everglades is a


unique habitat for animals that
people from around the world
come to visit annually for its
pristine beauty.
On Friday, there they were at
Billie Swamp's Safari in Big Cy-
press Reservation: visitors from
Russia and Mexico marveling
at the presentations on display,
conveying their excitement
in native tongue to anyone in
close proximity.
As the tour guide spun the


airboat around a grassy brush,
the head of an alligator could
be seen in the distance. When
a food biscuit meant for one of
the other animals was tossed
into the water, and an alligator
pulled up suddenly to snatch it,
the passengers looked on wide-
eyed.
Operators are especially
proud at being able to meld a
rich entertainment experience

through holes cut in the floor.
"Generally it (the odor) will

Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whiddon stands among suspected marijuana plants as they
were found Wednesday night in a suspected grow house in Muse. A GCSO detective said a
Miami man was arrested and charged in connection with the case and is being held in the
Glades County Jail under a bond of $900,000.


And since the home sits on 5
acres, the odor had ample time to
dissipate.
He also said the floor in a
bathroom closet had been cut
out and a 55-gallon plastic barrel
was placed in the hole. The barrel
contained water and was being
used as the hydroponic system for
the alleged growing operation.
Sgt. Harris said the investigation
into this suspected growing
operation actually started about
six to seven months ago..
"But it went stale, and started
back up a couple of weeks ago,"
he added.
According to the detective
the plants were all healthy
and appeared to be recently
harvested.
"Without the assistance of the
citizens in this county, this grow
house would still be operating,"


said Glades County Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon.
Four detectives from GCSO's
Criminal Investigations Division,
as well as three deputies from


the road patrol division, took part
in executing the Feb. 13 search
warrant.
Sgt. Harris said the investigation
is continuing.

Letter to the Editor


From the bottom
of my heart
Dear Chief Gutshall;
I am writing you to thank you
and your department from the
bottom of my heart and with
all my soul for the quick and
kind response that you gave to
my husband Jon Hummel. He
was the driver of the Heartland
Express Semi that hit the white
bus that pulled out in front of him
in the early hours of Feb. 7, of this
year on W.C. Owen.
He said that from the first
moment that an officer arrived on
the scene he was talked to with
respect and concern.
Even when he called me to
tell me what had happened, your
officer, Tito Nieves was concerned
about my feelings and safety
especially when he learned that I
was going to drive from Orlando
down to your town. Officer Nieves


took the time to tell me the best
way to come and to let me know
that the fog was bad on 1-95. He
also told me that when I got to
your town and I was not sure
where to go that I could stop any
officer I saw and that they would
make sure that I would get to my
husband. He did not tell me this
once but several times.
Chief Gutshall, you should
be very proud of your officers
especially now days when all you
hear about the police are negative
things. I wish that the public
could see and know that there
are good and kind police officers
out there putting their lives on the
line everyday to help and protect
them.
Please sir thank your officer
for me and let them know that
everyone one of them are in my
daily prayers.
Respectfully,
Lydia P. Hummel

Martinez targets Medicare fraud


WASHINGTON -- U.S. Sena-
tor Mel Martinez (R-FL) success-
fully passed through the Senate a
measure aimed at curbing Medi-
care fraud. Martinez is seeking to
change existing law to double
the penalties currently allowed.
The senator calls it a "first step"
toward ensuring taxpayer dollars
have better oversight.
"Medicare fraud is running
rampant across Florida and
across the country. We need to
send a message to those bilking
billions from the system that we
won't stand for it and the penal-
ties are going to be severe," Sen.
Mel Martinez said. "This is only
the first step; in the long-run, we
need to reform the oversight sys-
tem."
Senator Martinez's effort
would increase the maximum
criminal sentence for Medicare
fraud from five years to ten years;
it would double all civil fines to


$20,000 per claim; and it would
quadruple the criminal fine to
$100,000.
"From $5 million dollar
wheelchairs to phony billing to
provider kickbacks, Medicare
fraud is costing all of us billions
of dollars," said Martinez. "The
current penalties aren't deterring
people and organizations from
taking advantage of the system,
so until we can reform the larger
oversight issue, this will give the
judicial system greater discretion'
in helping to put offenders be-
hind bars."
Current estimates put Medi-
care fraud as high as $60 billion
dollars a year.
Senator Martinez had also of-:
fered the text of today's amend-
ment as a stand-alone bill with
the support of Senators John
Cornyn (R-TX), Lamar Alexander
(R-TN), Norm Coleman (R-MN),
and David Vitter (R-LA).

Keep doing what you always



did; get what you always got


By Rev. Stnuel S.
Thomas Ph. D.+
St. Marfn's Church,
Clewison
For ome time now, we've been
watching our dog when she eats.
She vuld shy away from her din-
ner, nly to be willing to eat if we
Ve with her, grab a piece of food
ow of her bowl and run away to
pt it. It would take a lot of coaxing
a get her to settle down and eat as
we'd expect a hungry animal to do.
As I thought about this pattern, it
seemed as if she expected her food
to be taken away and that she'd
have to fight for it. Dogs imprint
early in their lives:
"You can't teach an old dog
new tricks" comes from observing
that what is laid down early tends
to become a permanent pattern.
We had to change the rules; praise
her for eating, sit with her, pet her
when she approached her dinner
bowl, let her know that she didn't
have to fight for her food or "steal"
anything by putting her bowl nearer
when she looked at it with a long-
ing expression. Little by little came
a'better approach to eating; less
avoidance, less fear, a more natural
kind of enjoying dinner as did the
other animals in my life.
Animals, and people, and con-
gregations, and even those who
keep their distance, will tell you
about what has happened to them
by the way they act. Fortunately,
you can teach an old dog new
tricks; people can learn new ways
of going about living, congrega-
tions can get over bad experiences
and those who avoid human con-


tact will come around if given con-
sideration and an open heart.
I had a sec- .,,.
retary once that
told me about
her young son
and the tantrum '._e'
he threw when
they tried getting
him to sleep in
the dark for the
first time. I sug- Samuel S.
gested that she Thomas
try a smaller watt-
age bulb, and little by little reduce
the light until he got used to some-
thing new. After all, for his entire life
- no matter how short it had been
to date was lived with the light on
as he went to sleep. That's what he
learned; darkness was scary and
needed to be approached gradu-
ally rather than making an abrupt
change.
Old patterns die hard; we bear
their imprints long after they've
outlived their usefulness. John the
Baptist foreshadows Jesus' teach-
ing when he tells the crowds "Do
not presume to say to yourselves
'We have Abraham as our father'
(Matthew 3:9) because God will
raise up children to Abraham." Je-
sus picks Samaritans and Centuri-
ons to be witnesses to the faith He
teaches. He cautions people about
the "Scribes and Pharisees who sit
on Moses' seat (Matthew 23:2)"
that go through the motions of
faith expecting their same old pat-
terns will bring them salvation and
rewards, but miss the point. One
of the lessons to be learned is that
we can't keep doing the same old
things again and again, and expect
something different to come from


our actions. It has taken some ob-
servation to understand what our
dog was telling us at mealtime; we
cannot participate in the trauma of
the past and expect it to lead to a
new outcome, a more enjoyable
and normal part of her life with
us. I met and got to know a wood-
worker who was proud of his shop
and shared it with me one day. Ev-
eryone knew that his wife "went
off" every now and then, and had
to be hospitalized on several occa-
sions. After seeing his shop one af-
ternoon, he said he'd invite me in,
but couldn't promise what I'd find.
I said, "OK" and we entered.
He introduced me to his wife and
I asked "How are you?" She shot
back, "What business is that of
yours?" I quickly replied "You're ab-
solutely right; it's none of my busi-
ness at all." There was silence and
then embarrassment on her part;
I knew of the background, I had
been cautioned. I made it a point to
do the best I could. My innocuous
social question might have set off a
chain of past memories of doctor's
inquiries under bad circumstances
or people perceived as prying, or
staff reactions that didn't help. We
spent the next several minutes qui-
etly; I was thankful to God that I did
something different. The message
of the Gospel is that "if the old way
isn't working, do something new."
The God that said, "Behold, I make
all things new (Revelation 21:5)"
helps us make changed when we
realized old ways aren't working
and set about to change things.
He'll be in there; guiding, leading,
pointing the way when we decide
to do something new.

The Fourth Quarter


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
SI found it amazing that many
of the college football games
were won in the fourth quarter
this last year. So was the Super
Bowl. Now I'm noticing a num-
ber of the basketball games go
down to the last minute. Many
times victories come from those
who can dig down deep and find
extra energy to put forth in the
closing minutes.
My football coach of former
years called it fourth quarter
toughness building the endur-
ance to finish strong when the
opponents were fading. We had.
some grueling practices, and non
school days sometimes had two-
a-day practices. It built stamina,
with the result that many times
our team dominated the final
quarter of the game. Our players
would pump each other up by
crying "Fourth Quarter!" It was a


call to dig down deep and give it
your all in the final quarter of the
game.
The "Fourth
Quarter" war cry
has been some-
thing I've carried
with me into
life. There have W
been a number
of times I have
felt like stop-
ping but found John
myself thinking, Hicks
"Fourth Quar-
ter", and dug deep to keep going.
Responsibilities and challenges
often require a lot of persever-
ance, and victory many times re-
quires giving more when you feel
like giving up.
I find myself in a fourth quarter
situation right now. This has been
a rough year health wise. Next
month I go in for a right hip re-
placement. I've lost a lot of weight,
but still have a lot of weight yet to
lose. There are times when I just


belongs t
feel like chucking it all and delv-
ing into a huge bowl of ice cream.
But fourth quarter thinking keeps
surfacing. With that, I am encour-
aged to fight the good fight and
finish the course.
How? By realizing in my life
what the Apostle Paul realized
in Philippians 4:12-13: "1 have
learned the secret of being con-
tent in any and every situation,
whether well fed or hungry,
whether living in plenty or in
want. I can do everything through
Him who gives me strength."
"I can do all things through
Him who gives me strength" has
become my mantra.
Maybe you're in one of those
"fourth quarter" situations right
now. Maybe you have many rea-
sons to slack off or to quit. Maybe
your game has been long and
hard and your strength is giv-
ing out. In such times as these,
remember the Scriptures tell us
"God gives His strength to the
weary and He increases the pow-


o all of us
er of the weak."
God's strength belongs to the
weak and the weary, and His
strength can carry us all the way
to the finish line. Claim this prom-
ise! Shout with all of God's cham-
pions, "It's the fourth quarter! It's
ours!" Be a fourth quarter hus-
band or wife, be a fourth quarter
mom or dad, a fourth quarter
friend, or worker, or leader. Look
ahead to what's at the finish line
for all who complete the course
that God has given them. Those
who quit before the game is over
will never know the rewards that
only the finishers can enjoy. And
remember, you and I can do all
things through Him who gives us
strength.

The new birth, life and growing!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
There is an interesting paral-
lel between spiritual and physi-
cal birth. This parallel and com-
parison can be further seen in
life and growing. The New Tes-
tament points out some of these
parallels but not all of them.
Jesus taught that before
we can be children of God we
must be "born again" (John
3:3-5). Not only is this a figure
of speech, it is a spiritual reality.
John uses this mode of expres-
sion in talking about those who
are Christians (I John 2:29; 3:9;
4:7; 5:1, 4,18, etc.). Also it is
used by Peter (1 Peter 1:22-23).
Although Paul in more of a gen-
eral sense (involving himself)
may refer to a birth (I Cor. 4:15;
I Tim. 1:2), he seems to use the
figure of Christians being 'chil-
dren of God by adoption. (Ro-
mans 8:14-17; Gal. 4; 5-7).
There must be conception
before there is a birth. James
wrote, "Of his own will begat
he us with the word of truth,
that we should be a kind of first
fruits of his creatures." (James
1:18). Peter speaks of Christians
"being born again, not of cor-
+ ruptible seed, but of incorrupt-
ible, by the word of God which
liveth and abideth for ever" (I


Peter 1:23).The Word of God
is the sperm implanted in our
hearts that produces faith, obe-
dience, and the new birth (Ro-
mans 10:17; 10:8-10; 6:17; I Pe-
ter 1:22-23). The new birth has
been accomplished when we
have repented, been baptized
(John 3:5; Acts 2:38, 41; I Peter
1:22-23), and raised to"walk in
newness of life" (Romans 6).
There is travail and pain as-
sociated with birth (I Thessalo-
nians 5:3). It is no easy experi-
ence. This is likewise true with
spiritual birth. All have sinned
and come short of the glory
of God (Romans 3:23). Facing
up to our sins, acknowledging
them, and genuinely repenting
of them is a painful process. But
is all part of being born again.
There can be no new birth with-
out it (although some would
seek to "soft pedal" the awful-
ness of sin).
Jesus said, "A woman when
she is in travail hath sorrow,
because her hour is come: but
as soon as she is delivered of
the child, she remembereth no
more the anguish, for joy that
a man is born into the world"
(John 16:21). This is also true
with the spiritual birth. Jesus
said, "Likewise, I say unto you,
there is joy in the presence of
the angels of God over one sin-
ner that repenteth" (Luke 15:10;


Read the whole chapter). The
Ethiopian, when he came up out
of the waters of baptism in Acts
8, "went on his way rejoicing"
(8:39). Truly this is an occasion
of great joy for all concerned.
Peter admonished, "As new-
born babes, desire the sincere
milk of the word, that ye may
grow thereby" (I Peter 2:3).
There must be a birth before
there is life, and because they are
alive, little babies come into the
world hungry. We cannot force
them to eat, only supply their
needs and encourage them. It
is a sign of a healthy birth when
that spiritual appetite is there.
Jesus said that we must become
as little children in our attitudes,
our humility, and our openness
to God. (Matthew 18:3-4). They
who hunger and.thirst after righ-
teousness will be filled (Mat-
thew 5:6). There will be spiritu-
al growth and maturity. But the
birth is only the beginning.
There are other parallels that
could be brought out. However,
this is enough to stir our minds
about these great spiritual
truths. This is not only a figure,
but a great spiritual reality. The
new birth and the new life must
be experienced in becoming,
being, and remaining children
of God. We are no child of God
without this.

Know the signs of heart attack


The American Heart Asso-
ciation (AHA) wants American
women to "go red" this month.
It's part of a campaign to fo-
cus on the importance of heart
health. According to the AHA, the
focus on women's health is im-
portant because of an incorrect
stereotype that heart disease is a
"men's" disease.
Men and women need to know
the signs of heart attack and the
importance of calling 9-1-1 imme-
diately at the onset of heart attack
symptoms. Every minute counts.
The sooner a heart attack victim
receives treatment, the greater the
chance of survival. Modern medi-
cine has a number of treatments
that can be very effective if given
at the first sign of a problem.
Not all of the common symp-
toms of a heart attack occur with
every attack. Sometimes signs go
away and return.


Heart attack
warning signs
According to the AHA, "some
heart attacks are sudden and in-
tense--the movie heart attack --
where no one doubts what's hap-
pening. But most heart attacks start
slowly, with mild pain or discom-
fort. Often people affected aren't
sure what's wrong and wait too
long before getting help."
According to the AHA, common
signs of a heart attack include:
Chest discomfort: Most heart
attacks involve discomfort in the
center of the chest that lasts more
than a few minutes, or that goes
away and comes back. It can
feel like uncomfortable pressure,
squeezing, fullness or pain.
Discomfort in other areas of
the upper body: Symptoms can in-
clude pain or discomfort in one or
both arms, the back, neck, jaw or
stomach.
Shortness of breath with or


without chest discomfort.
Other signs may
include
Breaking out in a cold sweat
Nausea
Lightheadedness
For both men and women, the
most common sign of a heart attack
is chest pain. However, according
to the AHA, women are more likely
to experience shortness of breath,
nausea and back or jaw pain.
The AHA advises that even if
you aren't sure it's a heart attack,
have it checked out. Fast action can
save lives.
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise pro-
gram, consult your doctor.
This is especially important if
you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

University of Florida to host 'Bee College' event


GAINESVILLE Members of
the UF Honey Bee Research and
Extension Lab have organized
a first-of-its-kind event featur-
ing the 1st Annual Bee College
and Honey Show and the start
of the University of Florida Mas-
ter Beekeeper Program, both to
be held at the Mid-Florida Re-
search and Education Center in
Apopka on March 13-15.
The Master Beekeeper Pro-


gram is designed to enhance
beekeeper education and re-
quires that participants com-
plete written and practical ex-
aminations and fulfill public
service credits. The program
consists of four levels of ad-
vancement from apprentice
beekeeper to master craftsman
beekeeper. Examination and
training for the apprentice level
will be held on March 13.


The Bee College is a two-
day event featuring two educa-
tional tracks, one for beginners
and another for experienced
beekeepers. Both tracks con-
sist of workshops and lectures
presented by nationally-recog-
nized experts and sought-after
speakers such as Dr. Jim Tew
and Dennis vanEnglesdorp.
This program promises to be
useful to beekeepers, pest con-


trol operators, master garden-
ers,. county agents, and anyone
interested in honey bees. The
beginner's track has been de-
signed to teach people with
limited/no'bee knowledge how
to keep bees; beginner classes
include bee biology, rules for
keeping bees in Florida, and
clipping/marking queens. Ex-
perienced track classes include
the latest information on CCD,


fundamentals of pollination
ecology, and how to diagnose
bee diseases in one's own colo-
nies (using microscopes).
All Bee College students
are encouraged to participate
in the 1st Bee College Honey
Show which will be judged by
a decorated, world-class Welsh
honey judge. There will be 13
.show classes that include sev-
eral types of honey, mead, can-


dles, bee-related art, photogra-
phy, and beekeeping gadgets.
Awards will be given to winners
in each class.

the Bee College Master Bee-
keeper Program, or Honey
Show visit the UF Honey Bee

Most times, outside of the ex-
ception of a few events and oc-
casions, auxiliary officers donate
their time to helping and don't
draw a regular paycheck. The
few who remain demonstrate
just how much they care for their
community, the chief said.
"Anyone who will come and


do volunteer work, they have a
heart for the community," said
Chief Gutshall.
To those who cannot donate
as much time, or would prefer
not to carry weapons, the chief
suggests the Citizens Observer
Patrol program.
The training is only two weeks
long and the civilian position
sees residents casting a wary eye
on their local neighborhoods to
keep them safe.
"They're just another set of
eyes for safety," said the chief.
The department can use the


help.
"We may not have but three
officers on duty at times cover-
ing four square miles," said Chief
Gutshall. "That's a lot of territory
to cover."

There's enough here to keep
most people entertained for a
full day. If you're feeling espe-
cially adventurous, you can stay
in a Seminole chickee and listen
to the sounds of the animals and
critters at night.
The restaurant inside the park,
features a variety of items, includ-
ing catfish, frog legs, gator tail
nuggets and other delicacies. The
food arrives promptly once its or-
dered and keeps bellies full in an-
ticipation of the activities ahead.
The critter show has every-
thing from birds of prey to skunks
to baby alligators, and the host
keeps participants riveted with
useful, and sometimes humor-
ois, information about the local
environment.
Surrounding the park are tur-
tle and lizard and alligator areas
where seeing one of these rare
creatures is a delight.
Last week, a group of flute
makers met at the park and
guided those interested in mak-
ing their own flutes through the
process. The sound of the Native
American wind instruments car-
ried itself throughout the park.
Another hut nearby helped
visitors make their own flute or-
naments and decorations.
A snake show featured a

the creepy critters. The host en-

To finish the day's activities, Bil-

There is also a gift shop that
carries plenty of souvenirs.
The events won't break the
bank, either. Day. packages are


available at $43 per adult, $30 per
child, and include most of the at-
tractions.
This Friday, the Safari is show-

Counseling Association
Improvements in health.
care and lifestyles mean that
more of us are living longer
than ever before. But with
that bonus of extra years also
comes worries for many of us
about the natural reductions
in our abilities that occur as
we age.
Most of us can accept that
our physical abilities decline
with age, even beginning at a
fairly young age (yes, you're
only forty-one, but your teen-
age son will probably outrun
you). What remains a source
of stress is that our mental
abilities will also diminish as
we get older.
The most immediate sign
of the apparent "decline" is
when we find we can't re-
member things. Whether
we're thirty-five or sixty-five
when we begin to notice
lessened memory power, it's
often stressful and possibly
frightening..
The reality, of course, is that
we all forget things, regardless
of our age. As a teenager there
were homework assignments
or promises to parents that
slipped but of your mind just

as easily as the name of that
colleague you saw at lunch
yesterday. The difference is
that back then you thought it
no big deal, while now you're
sure it's a sign that old age has
you in its grips.
Experts say that for most
people the decline in memory
is actually very gradual and
usually isn't obvious until age
70 or later. And simple memo-
ry loss is not necessarily a sign
of dementia. While dementia
does cause memory loss, it
also includes declines in cog-
nitive and intellectual func-
tion such as comprehension,
judgment, learning capacity
and reasoning.
So while having some
trouble remembering doesn't
mean you're slipping into se-
nility, if it is something you're
finding, increasingly trouble-
some,. you might consider
ways to improve memory.


Good starting points are
eating a healthy diet, staying
physically active and getting
plenty of rest. All can help
combat memory loss while
helping you feel and function
better overall.
Mental health experts
also advise, that memory can
be -improved and preserved
through training and practic-
ing of memory skills. There
are numerous books, and
even computer programs,
with exercises, to improve
memory. Learning a new
skill, like cooking or chess, is
another way to challenge and
strengthen your mind.
But, if memory issues are
truly: bothering you, consider
consulting a counseling pro-
fessional. A counselor spe-
cializing in aging can offer
diagnostic tests, as well as
techniques, strategies and
advice to make memory loss
less of an issue in your life.
"The Counseling Corner"
is provided as a public service
by the American Counseling
Association, the nation's larg-
est organization of counsel-
ing professionals. Learn more

fession at the ACA web site,
