HCSO busts 4 grow houses


Separate sites
revealed bounty of
marijuana plants

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- There was
nothing but high praise and ac-
colades for the investigators and
deputies involved in busting four
grow houses in the span of one
week.
'To homes in Pioneer, and
another two in LaBelle, kept law


enforcement officials last week.
Four men were arrested at sepa-
rate sites: Mario Morejon, David
J. McCarthy, Caamilo Fonseca
Gonzalez and Enrique Alejandro
Jimenez.
The operation represents a
major blow to local drug pro-
ducers and, investigators hope,
has helped to damage the chan-
nels through which the complex
operation works.
Even as the organization put
some of the men they believed
to be in charge of the produc-
tion behind bars, the sheriff's of-


fice continues to hear criticisms
that the real criminals are getting
away while they focus on bust-
ing marijuana operations.
The truth is, according to offi-
cials, that a tremendous amount
of progress is being made on a
problem that may be difficult to
comprehend.
"A lot of people are saying
we're not. busting people with
cocaine, we are," said Mayra Eg-
ley, inspector with the sheriff's
office, "but these grow houses,
I don't think people realize how
much money we're talking


Combating vandalism: Police on the lookout


INI/Jose Zaragoza
The Clewiston Police Department is hoping that the public will help put a stop to the
graffiti problems around town. This was carved into one of the benches at Candy Cane
Park in Clewiston, one of the hardest areas to maintain, according to city officials.


INI/Jose Zaragoza
At the benches at the marina, this one was more battered than most, with graffiti
scrawled on it and half of the table broken in half. It is becoming a costly.endeavor to
the city to maintain area parks being targeted by vandals. Witnesses are encouraged
to call the police department to report the crimes.


Moving back home hard to do


Grads discuss ups
and downs of
moving back home

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
The thought of moving out
of mommy and daddy's nest
is thrilling to many high school
graduates. But how many con-
sider the thought of moving
back?
Tiffanie Rivers, 27, is from
Clewiston and recently moved
back home from Tallahassee
three weeks ago after graduat-
ing from Florida A&M Univer-
sity.


"It is pretty traumatic to me,
moving back home," says Riv-
ers, a graduate of Clewiston
High School.
"I've been working since 16
so living at home and not hav-
ing a paycheck coming in is
pretty depressing."
Rivers says that, financially,
mom and dad are a great help
when it comes to the bills.
"It's the commute that puts
a dent in your pocket book."
She continues.
Rivers is not letting the woes
get her down.
"I have a very active 2-year-
old that I live for now," she
says. "And there is nothing de-
pressing about him."


Another resident of Clewis-
ton, Kenya Robinson, has been
back home for almost two
years.
"Moving back is great finan-
cially, but you can't do what
you want to do anymore," says
the former Raider.
Robinson is a University of
Florida graduate. Away from
home for four years, she re-
turned in pursuit of employ-
ment.
"It's. easier back home be-
cause nowadays it is hard to
find a job even with a degree,"
she says.
"No job, no paycheck, no

about."
Half of the 250 plants seized
are believed to be hydroponic
plants -- which is a form of mari-
juana that is more potent than
that of the regular variety.
"Some of those hydroponic
plants sell for up to $4,500 a
pound. The perception is, okay
it's a little bit of marijuana. When
you can get $4,500 a pound,
that's a lot of money."
At that price, that half of last
week's recovery-would be val-
ued at more than $500,000 on
the streets, according to Captain


Joe Johnson, of the sheriff's of-
fice criminal investigations divi-
sion.
Captain Johnson tries to
explain the appeal of Hendry
County to criminals.
"We're in a rural area to begin
with, that's part of it. Fact of it is a
lucrative business," said Captain
Johnson.
In some cases, the grow-
ers live in the home where they
grow the plants; in others, they
simply tend to the plants on oc-

talks substation


To rebuild or not to
rebuild abandoned
sheriff substation

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- The Board
sat firm, yet approachable, and
ready to address the issues of
the evening. Some issues were
new, however others were par-
ticularly familiar.
In 2005, Hurricane Wilma
invaded the former El Paso Av-
enue sheriff's substation with
aggressive wind and water
damage.
"We had to operate tempo-
rarily out of the old Chamber of
Commerce building located in
front of the hospital," said liai-
son Nick Smith.


"The new station opened
in May 2006 in the old Kmart
plaza."
At the last county commis-
sion meeting, the motion to
proceed with the construction
of the sheriff's substation was
carried. One month later, talks
arise again regarding what to
do with the structure.
Lisa Pickron, a Hendry
County Fair trustee, is merely
concerned that fairground af-
filiates be considered in the
decision making process. Pick-
ron could not be contacted for
comment.
Commissioner Darrell Harris
of District 2 contends that the
substation calls for rebuilding.
S"I just think we are at the
point where we reed to either
rebuild it or vote to build a new

carrot seeds to other countries and
other varieties of the plants were
developed, including a variety
of colors such as red, black and
white. By around the 10th centu-
ry, carrots were growing in what
is now Afghanistan, Pakistan and
Iran. Invaders are believed to have
brought the purple and yellow va-
rieties of carrots from North Africa
to southern Europe around the
,2th Century.
Today's orange carrot was de-
veloped for royalty. First, Dutch
growers experimented with differ-
ent varieties of carrots to reduce
the bitterness of the root, devel-
oping a reddish version. Around
the 1500s, Dutch scientists used
mutant yellow carrot seeds from
North Africa, crossed with their
less bitter red carrots to develop
an orange carrot in honor of the
House of Orange, the Dutch Royal
Family. They came up with the
sweet, orange-colored carrots that
are popular worldwide today.
Some information for this
column came from the web site
www.carrotmuseum.com. Here's
some carrot trivia from www.car-
rotmuseum.com:


The Longest Carrot recorded
in 1996 was 16 feet 10.5 inches.
Carrots are about 85 percent

Carrots were first grown as a
medicine not a food.
The average person will con-
sume 10,866 carrots in a lifetime.
Tobacconists in France used
to put a carrot in their bins to keep
their tobacco from drying out.
In early Celtic literature, the
carrot is referred to as the "Honey
Underground."
Carrots were the first vegeta-
ble to be canned commercially.
.* You get between 175,000
and 400,000 seeds in a pound a
teaspoon can hold approximately
2000 carrot seeds.
The carrot is a member of the
parsley family including species
such as celery, parsnip, fennel, dill
and coriander.
The Anglo-Saxons included
carrots as an ingredient in a me-
dicinal drink against the devil and
insanity.

There is a big difference! If you
are simply working in the busi-
ness, you might be able to leave
a little early, call in sick, or yes
take a longer vacation. Business
owners do not work in the busi-
ness though, they run the busi-
ness. That means meetings with
supplies, coming in early, staying
late, cutting short a vacation be-
cause there is an issue that has
popped up.
More than one small business


owner has found that they spend
more time at work as the busi-
ness owner than they ever have
before. Even worse, they find
they spend more time in an of-
fice or on the phone putting out
fires than they actually do on the
sales floor or out providing the
service they started the business
to provide. If you want to have
that free time you are so desper-
ately seeking, take a long hard
look at the business world to see


if you get more free time as the
owner. Is that fact or fiction?
We are still accepting students
for our business class here in
Clewiston starting next Monday,
March 24. If you want to take
part in a fun, hands on class that
will teach you all you have read
in these articles and then some,
please contact me ASAP. See you
next week.

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computter for long periods of time often encounter a variety
of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are com-
mon, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain,
blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the
most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE VISION AT THE COMPUTER
While decreasing time spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to max-
imize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy ard
that you have the correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription (if necessary).
Be certain to tell your optometrist about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the com-
puter. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for
working at the computer.
Rest the eyes
Blink forcefully
Use a humidifier
Instill artificial tears
After you have had a comprehensive eye examination, there are a number of things that
you can do to arrange and use the elements of your workstation to eliminate or minimize
discomfort.
WORKSTATION SETUP FOR COMFORTABLE COMPUTER USE
Feet should be flat on the floor (or on a slightly angled foot rest) with knees
bent close to or greater than 90 degrees.
Chair seat should support the legs without excessive pressure.on the back of
the things.
The back should be snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home

Resurrection eggs, an Easter story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Stephen was one of those spe-
cial youth who touched my life.
He was energetic. He was a lead-
er. He had an open heart for the
Lord, and he loved helping make
things happen in the youth group.
And if that wasn't enough, he had
a cute older sister. I couldn't have
asked for much more as a single
young minister.
Around Easter, God blessed
me with a program that Stephen
really took to heart. I gave every-
one an empty Leggs container
(the ones shaped like eggs), and
challenged them to go find some-
thing that symbolized new life and
place it in their "egg". We ended
up with flowers and insects and
all kinds of offerings. Afterwards,
I showed them an empty egg, and
shared with them about the tomb
being empty and how that meant
new life for us all. Stephen liked
the illustration so much that he
started handing out empty eggs
at school, sharing with the recipi-
ents about the empty tomb and
its' meaning. He called his eggs
"resurrection eggs".
Then, Stephen came out of
remission. In six weeks, I saw a
healthy, energetic young man


become a puffy, lethargic mass.
Although the cancer affected Ste-
phen's body, it did not affect his
spirit. He still bad a positive out-
look and still loved to share res-
urrection eggs with those around
him.
Stephen eventually slipped
into a coma and was admitted
to the- hospital. One day as I was
heading to the church, I got the
inkling to stop at the hospital to
see him. As I went up to the floor,
I met Stephens' dad, who with
tears in his eyes shared, "John,
my son is dying."
With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natal position coma,
making whimpering sounds like
a little puppy. Not knowing what
else to do, I held Stephens' hand
and started to pray. I don't know
the time frame, but I suddenly
noticed that the whimpering had
stopped. I looked up and saw Ste-
phen looking at me. I will never
forget his look or what he told
me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later, Stephen
did go to be with Jesus, but his
words of assurance stayed in my
heart. The church was filled to
overflowing with students and


young people giving testimony
after testimony about how Ste-
phen's faith had touched their
lives. Many came with the resur-
rection eggs that Stephen had
given them. One of the resurrec-
tion eggs was even placed in his
coffin. Stephen's body we placed
in the earth, but Stephen's spirit
had already been claimed-he had
gone to be with Jesus.'
If you ever happen to be in
Sandy Springs, Ga., stop by North
Springs United Methodist Church.
There you will find a Dogwood
tree blossoming with new life dur-
ing the Easter Season. At its base
is a plaque remembering Stephen
Haight. It's a tribute to a young
man who touched many lives not
only with his resurrection eggs,
but with his resurrection faith.
Because the tomb is empty, we
can have new life. Because the
tomb is empty our lives can be
full. Because the tomb is empty,
we can go forth as people brim-
ming with the resurrection love of
God. Be graceful in spirit, hopeful
in word, faithful in deed. Live for
the risen Christ as Christ lives in
you. And remember, when the
day comes, as people with resur-
rection faith, we can claim and
proclaim with full assurance, "I'm
going to be with Jesus!"


The book, the lamb, and the song!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
Resurrection Sunday, of all
days, should be a time of praise to
Jesus Christ for His mighty victory
over sin and death in our behalf.
This is why our Choir is present-
ing the Musical, "The Old Rugged
Cross Made The Difference". Such
praise is a dominant theme in
heaven. Nowhere in all Scripture
is a more magnificent hym than
John's "Worthy Is The Lamb" in
Revelation 5:9-14.
From the content of John's
Hymn of praise comes the thought
I would like to share with you.
From this chapter John tells of a
mysterious book and a mighty
Lamb, and a magnificent song.
The book that John saw was
sealed and this caused him to
weep. Some books in God's li-
brary include: all the deeds of
personal human history; all the
+ demands of God's laws; all the ex-
perience of God's beloved; all the
names of those redeemed by the
Blood (Ps. 69:28; Gal. 3:10; Mal.
3:16; Phil. 4:3). Some books bring
us sorrrow: sorrow of unresolved
inequities, sorrow of unknown or
fearful future; and, sorrow of un-
certain salvation. John's sorrow is


all mankind's sorrow. A part from
the Lamb and the song there is
sorrow; and even the Bible itself
is a sealed book apart from Jesus.
But John's story does not end
with weeping.
"Weep not! An elder lifts
John's vision, "Behold the Lion!
Lion, Lamb, Root Judah! Slain
in meekness, and patience, now
Christ is seen as mighy and pow-
erful, striking terror to the hearts
of His enemies while bringing
comfort to His people. One
nature of the Lamb stands out
above others, it has been slain!
At the throne, identified with God
himself, it yet bears the marks of
having died! The heart of Resur-
rection truth is very near this
point! The Lamb, identified as "of
Judah" and yet having seven eyes
and seven horns of the sevenfold
Spirit of God, is able to open the
sealed book!
The Song is begun by the re-
deemed (vs 9). The new song is
of Redemption! Arid while the'
angels are quick to join in praise,
they do not have part in the very
firs chorus, for the heart of Resur-
rection is not the return of sprint-
ime, the eternal conservation
of life, or the beauty of flowers
and birdsong, but it is the fact of
bloody battle and stunning victo-


ry, of alienated mankind brought
into fellowship with a holy God.
And at the very foot of the throne
becoming a great family that in-
cludes every tongue, people,
and nation. This song, picked up
by heaven's chorus, praises the'
Lamb because He alone is worthy
to open the sealed book. Christ is
our key to the mysteries of faith,
of death, eternity, and redemp-
tion! The song is actually begun
before the books are opened. We
may praise Jesus now; and even
before we know the future, we
may know Him with certainty!
And we may begin now, joining
the myriads around the throne
as we sing: "CROWN HIM...the
Lamb upon the Throne!"
But before we sing a hymn of
praise to Christ, are there sealed
books that cause you to weep? Is
the Bible a sealed book to you?
Do you have a deep concern
about.death and about the future?
You can have victory in Jesus by
believing the Gospel, repenting of
sins, confession His name before
men, and being baptized for re-
mission of sins to receive the Holy
Spirit and begin a New Life! The
message of Resurrection Sunday
is "Weep not! The Lion of the
tribe of Judah has prevailed!

Easter-He's alive; because of it, we're alive too


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
She had always been a
"bleeder" with the slightest cut
meaning a possible hemorrhage.
The day came when she needed
surgery that was unavoidable
and the risks were great. With
the proper medications and care
to control bleeding, and possi-
bilities explained, the operation
was scheduled. She told me
about waking up in the recovery
room and shouting "I'm alive!
I'm alive!" and I can certainly
imagine the excitement and joy.
She was on the other side of
death and there was a new and
better life ahead. This has always
been a "resurrection story" for
me. It is also our story-the story
of what Easter is all about.
The biblical account is about
two women who do not expect
to find their Lord alive (Mark
16:1ff) and go to His tomb to
anoint a.dead body. They are
sure He is dead; they bring spices
to help with preservation of the
person who once was among
them. The Lord meets and
greets them,(Matthew 28:9) and
the two women "Mary Magde-
lene and "the other Mary," pro-
claimed to all they encountered
"He's alive!, He's alive!" With
that news, there is the promise
that we too shall live with Him,
that we too are alive with Him.
There is an account in John's
gospel (chapter 11, v. Iff) that is
a prelude to the Easter story; it
is about raising Lazarus from the
dead. I've descended into that
tomb in Bethany where he was
supposed to have lain, dead, for
four days and can envision the
finality of death in that darkened,
damp, underground cave about
two stories below the earth. If he
was there for four days, Lazarus
was really dead! The story sur-
rounding his death reports that
his sisters, Martha and Mary, met
the Lord and told Him, "Lord, if
you were here, my brother would
not have died (John 11:21)." He
has died, though, and was dead
before Jesus arrived. Jesus went
to the tomb, calls for Lazarus to
come out, and he literally returns
to life after being dead for four
days. This is a prelude of things
to come, so that the Marthas and
Marys of the world may not be
as surprised when they see the
risen Lord and acknowledge
"He's alive!, He's alive!" I've
shared a new life with many; in


their getting married, in their be-
ing healed, in their overcoming
seemingly impossible obstacles,'
in their return from wars, in the
births of their children, in find-
ing successes in careers, in the
changes brought by gradua-
tions; all gifts of a new life and
all celebrations of an "Easter."
These things are all preludes to
things to come; life does not end
with life here but continues be-
yond this life: that's the story and
promise of Easter. The little "res-
urrections" that we see when
life is made better, when we are
made whole, when renewed,
when given another opportuni-
ty; all of these things point to the
life to come when at last this life
seems over but in reality is only
the beginning.
A great doctor was once
asked why he underook to study
medicine. He replied that he ob-
served every-creature sought to
continue life; even the smallest
one-celled creature would sub-


divide when part of it was dying
so that life might continue. He
said that this witness was a key
for him; life was intended to go
on and he wanted to be a part
of it.
The Christian story of Easter
is that story; that life is intended
to go on, and that God has a
part in it for each of us. The gift
of Easter is that it is a personal
story; each person who believes
will find new life and new hope.
The Lord has created us to seek
life, to preserve it, to respect it, to
cherish it. He also promises that
it does not come to an end even
when it stops on Earth. The gift
and promise of Easter is God's
sign to us; He's alive and be-
cause of it, We're alive too for
all eternity, forever. May you have
a happy and blessed Easter, and
share a special time in your lives
with all those who are special to

The Clewiston FFA Chapter
Celebrated National FFA Week
Feb. 18-24. Members started their
week off with a fun day, since
school was not in session. They
went on a trip to Lake Placid
to spend the day bowling. On
the way home they stopped at
Dominoes for lunch, relaxed by
a spring-fed lake, and enjoyed the
examples of Florida wildlife at Ga-
torama.
When school started back
on Tuesday, the members said a
big thank you to all -the teachers
by giving them a Teacher Appre-
ciation BBQ. Teachers were in-
vited to enjoy pork-steaks, baked
beans, and potato salad in the
Teachers' Lounge. After school
that day, Ag Track was held. Stu-
dents participated in many activi-
ties that included a Tug-o-War, a
water-balloon fight, and an "agi-
fled" volleyball game.
The next day, students put to-
gether a Member BBQ. Members
came to the shop during their
lunch period, and enjoyed fresh-
cooked hamburgers, french fries
and refreshments.
Thursday was mostly a prepa-
ration day for Week's Auction
during school, but that night,
members got together and went
to the local theatre to watch Open
Season for an FFA Movie Night.

Daisy
Continued From Page 1
and let me rub between his ears.
Before long he began braying,
frequently, and loud! Do donkeys
develop spring fever? Whatever
the reason for braying, he kept
it up until one day in early June,
the two sister donkeys we'd been
looking for arrived.
The three of them did not take
to each other immediately. Danny
stayed far away from them in an-
other pasture. But eventually, day
by day, they moved closer to each
other, especially when I'd go to
that same place by the fence with
bread and banana peelings along
with melon rinds.
Right away after the arrival of
the sisters, Daisy and Deena, we
noticed that Daisy was obviously.
"with ohild." We began to count
the months trying to guess when
the big event would take place.
The rest of the year spent itself out
and the New Year arrived. Still no
baby donkey -- not even through
January and February.
I began to wonder if she'd
changed her mind and was sim-
ply becoming more and more
obese.
The first week in March, she
Sand her sister disappeared. Again,
Danny was alone in the pasture,
wandering around as if he were
lost. Walking the fence line along:
side the big swamp, no sign of
the two of them was to be seen.
Three days of being absent wasn't
their habit.
Then, the heavens split open
and down came the rain and I
kept thinking, the would-have-
been April showers were all com-


Daisy and her-newborn, Dixie.

ing at one time and that in March!
But not for long, and I could not
help but wonder if another pack
of wild dogs had gotten to them
as they did to Dolly.
When the rain stopped and
the clouds blew away, again and
again, as usual, I headed for that
special spot by the fence with their
treats. Not a one of them could
be seen. I called and coaxed over
and over and was on the verge
of giving up when suddenly two
big ears appeared just above the
fronds of one of the biggest pal-
metto islands. Daisy! She gingerly
tip-toed far enough out that her
shoulders could be seen and then
legs! Four of them instead of two!
In seconds, she turned, holding
her pretty head high, and brayed
so loud I jumped from sheer sur-
prise.
She made an unhurried leap,
looked back at the island from
where she had just emerged, and


INI/Dale Conyers


by that time little Daisy Baby had
caught up with her, nuzzling its
mother's nose and neck. Baby
is marked just the same as her
mother, the same soft caramel
and ivory with white face, feet
and nose.
Very bewildered I kept won-
dering how this newborn just .3
days old, could be so big! So big,
in fact, that "it" had to kneel on its
knees to nurse its mother's two
small spigots!
Then the show began! One
chasing the other, mother and
baby, back and forth, round and
round with ballet grace.,
I kept calling and swinging
the bag of treats which up to that
time was all the enticement they
needed. But not now. Mother and
baby were too busy getting to
know each other in the big green
world they now called home.
"Aunt" Deena, Daisy's sister, is
no where near her delivery date,


so we still have a lot of watching
and waiting for another baby to
come and live all over the "green
sea" where there is velvet-like
grass and heavy green cover of
the palmetto islands that shed
water as off a tin roof, that affords
dense cool shade from heat of
sun, wards off harsh winds and
provides all sorts of little holes
and hollows to hide in when nec-
essary. And if they all need to hide
at the same time, there's the big
swamp where they could live for
weeks without being found.
For months and months Daisy
had resembled a huge balloon on
both sides and under her middle.
But now, all at once it seems, she
is slim and trim and leaping like
a dancer performing her long
awaited debut.
Daisy's off-spring is too big to
be called Baby but so far the right
name eluded me until early this
morning just as the sun was spill-
ing over the cypress and the pond.
In this new-green world washed
with sunbeams and songbirds all
about and fish jumping as if they
were on a trampoline, suddenly.
that honored old song so dear to
the hearts of Southerners seemed
to be floating in from all direc-
tions. Instantly the newborn's
name became "Dixie".
And so now there's Danny,'
Daisy, newborn Dixie, and Dana,
Grassy Run's little family of don-
keys.

Vietnam Veterans
Memorial of South-
west Florida

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On March 9,
,,jhe Vietnam Veterans Memorial
of Southwest Florida was dedi-
cated to military service people
who lost their lives in the war.
Seventy-six names from five
counties are etched on the black
granite monument. The names
are those of Lee, Charlotte, Col-
_ lier, Hendry and Glades County
Smen who were killed in service
to our country during the contro-
versial war.
It took nearly a decade to plan,
research and fund the memorial
that now stands in Fort Myers at
the Midpoint Bridge. Approxi-
mately 2,000 people attended the
dedication.
The memorial simply consists
of three large black granite slabs
standing upright with 76 names
engraved on them. There is a
battlefield cross made of bronze
positioned near the middle. In
a combat area, the battlefield
cross is a quickly erected tribute
to a fallen comrade, whereby the
bayonet end of the soldier's rifle
is stuck in the ground and his hel-
met is placed on top.
The engraving was done wby
Lucas Century of Sanibel. He
also did the work on the national
monument in Washington D.C.

GLADES PRIMARY CARE


Submitted/Craig Tonjes
The Vietnam Veterans Memorial of Southwest Florida was dedicated March 9 in Fort Myers
by the Midpoint Bridge. It honors 76 servicemen from a five county area who lost their lives.


Organizers feel fortunate that Mr.
SCentury contributed to the effort.
Craig Tonjes, veteran, coor-
dinated the project, and during
his research he was amazed to'
learn that in the 1960 census the
five county area had only about
94,000 residents. He believes that
76 fallen brothers-in-arms was a
considerable, loss to southwest
Florida at that time, when consid-
ered on a per capital basis.
"I feel that Vietnam memorials
are particularly important as time
moves on. In history texts the war
is little more than referenced as


at the county meeting to voice
opinions against the change. In-
creased density, traffic and noise
were the main issues. The case
will be submitted to the state's
Department of Community Af-
fairs, and if accepted by DCA, the
request for rezoning will require


road department are working on
a solution for a safer bus stop site.
Last year bus stop sites changed
because of the enforcement of the
sexual offender residency law.
Residents and.the traffic safety
team were concerned, because
the relocation of the bus stop had
more traffic congestion. Safety is-
sues were addressed at a county
commissioners meeting, and with
the Department of Transportation
(DOT). Thereafter, planning and
legwork by the school district and
road department began quickly.
"They got right on it," said An-
gelica Pena, traffic team chairper-


one of the causes of the turmoil
of the: 1960's," Craig Tonjes said.'
He went on to explain that
.these brief text references are a
disservice not only to those who
fought, but particularly to those
who died in service to this nation.
Mr. Tonjes hopes that 100 years
from now school children will
still visit the memorial and won-
der what makes these men so
important. Perhaps their curiosity
will cause them to ask questions.
Mr. TonjCs found out that
Glades County had about 4,000
residents during the Vietnam era.

signed from the position of Plan-

has served on the commission for
eight and one half years. A plaque

son.
Local officials will notify resi-
dents when work on the solution
has been completed.
The Department of Transpor-
tation will study the crash prone
intersection of U.S. 27 and S.R.
29. The community traffic safety
team has been informed it may
take up to 90 days to complete
the assessment, and the DOT will
report back with its findings.
A Buckle-Up awareness cam-
paign will begin sometime in May
and June. The DOT, local law
enforcement, and traffic team
members will observe and survey


One soldier from Moore Haven
has his nameengraved on the
newly dedicated memorial. That
service man was Michael Joseph
Thielen who petrihed in 1968,
and was buried 'at the Ortona
Cemetery of Glades' County. His
mother, Margie Thielen, still re-
sides in Moore Haven.
Mr. Tonjes is asking for sub-
missions of letters written by vet-
erans that may be engraved on
the back of the stone memorial.
He can be contacted at (239) 482-

Joshua through the paper work
process, and paid close attention
to his ideas. She saw him work
hard, follow through on his plans,
and passionately strive to achieve
*a place with the finalists in the
2008 science fair, which show-
cased 800 student finalists.
The middle schooler devel-
oped a project for environmental
science dealing with the effects of
TPO4 (phosphorus) and eutro-
phication in Lake Okeechobee.


In order to study how the fertilizer
element depletes oxygen from the
water, he conducted experiments
with samples from the lake. He
also worked with chemists at
South Florida Water Management
District;and the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers.
Joshua Deese placed third in
the environmental science cat-
egory, and was given the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration Award. He received
the People's Choice Award for a
second year in a row. This is an
award nominated by the public
attending the fair.
He was given a nomination


letter for the 2008 Society for Sci-
ence and the Public (SSP) Middle
School Program, formally known
as the Discovery Channel Young
Scientist Challenge. This is the sci-
ence competition Joshuawatched
on TV, three years earlier. With a
nomination letter, he will be able
to apply for entry into the pro-
gram. Shirley Morrison was very
pleased with his achievements
and cheerful spirit... ,,
"He has a genuine, happy
heart; and he wants to do good
things for everyone in his life,"
she said.
Joshua Deese's dad works as
a sergeant for the Glades County


Sheriff's Office, and his mom
Works in Clewiston as a family
support worker. He is also inter-
ested in business, computers,
government, reading and Tae

interest in his work, and he advis-
es his classmates to keep follow-
ing their dreams.
