Man shot in the neck, head


Victim survives
attack, bullet lodged
in his skull

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Miguel Bruno
didn't expect as he drove his car
down a street in Clewiston last
Thursday that moments later he
would be the victim of a shoot-
ing.
The incident happened short-


ly after 9 p.m. in the area of Twin
Lakes, as the victim left a friend's
house.
He and a friend decided they
would go to the movies, and
were on their way to pick up
their girlfriends when the un-
thinkable occurred.
Miguel isn't sure what hap-
pened next, except that he heard
a burst of noise and the rear and
quarter panel windows of his ve-
hicle shattered.
When he realized what had
happened, he drove himself to


the hospital for help.
Doctors there treated him for
his injuries, but his condition
remained uncertain earlier this
week.
Remarkably, although he sus-
tained two gunshot wounds -- to
his neck and head -- he reported
back to work almost immedi-
,ately.
According to him, the bullet
that pierced his skull managed to
penetrate the outer layer of the
bone and then became flattened
and remained lodged there.


SIt is safe to say that ynder any
other circumstances, he might
have died on the spot.
"The bullet is still in my head
right now," Miguel said.
He is scheduled to return
to the doctor tomorrow to see
whether doctors will try to ex-
tract the bullet.
Miguel never got a chance to
see who had done the shooting,
but had a suspicion about why it
happened.
"My friend,. I think they're af-
ter him," he said.


HCSO bust: Fifth grow house discovered


INI/Ashley Smith
Hendry County officials uncovered a marijuana grow house last Thursday at 1313 Shannon Lane in Flaghole. No
arrest has been made in connection with the discovery, although the owner has been identified. It is the fifth grow
house that has been discovered in Hendry County over the last two weeks.

Investigators discovered two large marijuana grow rooms inside of a Flaghole home. "This is big money," said Capt.
Joe Johnson, with the Hendry County Sheriff's Office.


Planning Brown Sugar Festival


Harlem residents
preparing to host
32nd festival

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- From the
very first meeting in 1976 to the
meeting held on Tuesday night,
preparations for the Brown
Sugar Festival have been those
of great and intense planning.
"When we started over thirty
years ago, it was a lot of work,"
said Gwendolyn Patrick, found-
er of the Harlem festival. "It has
grown year after year so I can
imagine the amount.of work it


takes to pull it off today."
SPatrick recollects how the
festival almost wasn't.
"I would see the kids run-
ning up and down the street
and I wanted to give them
something to do." She goes'
on. "But when I brought it to
my team, the idea was not
welcomed. Not until later that
night did one of the members
call me and say 'lets do it.'"
That members name was
Florine Jeffery.
"It was originally called the
May Day Celebration," she says
smiling, looking away with a
glint of nostalgia in her face as
she begins to tell a story.
"So we went for it," said


Patrick. "We collected 250 free
hot dogs and buns from people
and businesses and recruited
some music from an emcee in
a neighboring county."
She giggles to herself and
continues.
"Within 30 minutes, all of
the hot dogs were gone. But,"
her finger in the air, "the people
stuck around for the music.
And the next year, we got 500
hot dogs and buns."
There manifested a legacy
of food, music, dance, pageant-
ry and a historic celebration of
community.
Today current president Jan-
See Festival Page 18


His friend was not injured.
The Hendry County-Sheriff's
Office was unable to release
much information on the case,
as it is still under investigation,
but did confirm that the shoot-
ing happened and that a person
of interest has been identified.
Investigators processed the
scene and searched the vehicle
for bullets and other evidence.
No formal arrest has been
made:

Easter; Always to be recalled and celebrated


By Rev Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
SWith Easter behind us, it's all to
tempting to put it out of mind. Yet
the Easter story is an ever-present
story. It gives hope to all who hear
it; about rising beyond this life,
about new life, about fulfillment
of dreams and hopes. It is an af-
firmation of the hope of humanity
since time immemorial, almost
beyond belief and yet true. There
can be nothing greater when we
think about all that Easter means.
Like any good thing, there are
always those who like to detract
from the joy and .happiness .of
great events and people. Someone
told about the mother whose son
came home and told the family he
had won a new car. She replied
"The taxes alone will drive us to


the poor house." Sometimes,
those who detract have a vested
interest in keeping good news
from being true or believed.
I've heard many interpreta-
tions of scriptures or history;
with proponents of viewpoints
saying that they're not "interpret-
ing" but "clarifying" or some such
other defense. I wonder about the
vested interests of such claimants
who expound what they believe
to be the "real truth." The Exodus
story is a large part of.Old Testa-
ment history; it is a footnote in
Egyptian historical annals. Others
will share their theories on "who
really won the war," or "what re-
ally happened at Pearl Harbor,"
or some such other claims. The
Easter story, unfortunately, is no
different.
Following the Easter story with
all of its' beautiful and wonderful
meanings, there came a group of


religious leaders of their day who
wanted to quash it. Some of the
guards who were assigned to
watch the tomb where Jesus was
buried and see that the body was
not stolen went "and told the chief
priests all that had taken place
(Matthew 28:11ff)."
This could not be! "And when
they had assembled with the el-
ders and had taken counsel, they
gave a sum of money to the sol-
diers and said,'Tell people, His
disciples came by night and stole
Him'away while we were asleep'
(vss 12-13)." And to further give
credence to their deceit, they
promise "And if this comes to the
governor's ears, we will satisfy
him and keep you out of trouble
.(v. 14)."
The story was spread as the el-
ders wanted it; it exists to this day
among those who do not want
tobelieve or have a vested interest


in some other interpretation. Cov-
er-up tactics are not new! When I
encounter such stories and such
"interpretations" I always look at
who has what interest at heart in
their version of the "truth."
For the early Christians, there
was no interest other than to share
the truth, they were poor and dis-
organized but the power of the
message led to it's proclamation.
For others, this was not the case;
their interests were from keeping
others from even considering the
message of the disciples of Jesus'
followers. They were even willing
to pay to have others lie about
what they had seen. They will
lie themselves to the governor if
need be; to keep him from explor-
ing what really was true about this
special and wonderful story. They
can take advantage of their posi-
tion, their political power, their
prestige to further their cause.


Eventually the truth will come to
the light of day, as it has for two
thousand years now.
The life of Paul the Apostle is
a great example of someone who
had a vested interest in his viewp-
point, but another interpretation
came to him as he went about
persecuting the faithful Christians
of his day.
The Easter story has lived be-
cause it has come to the light of
day in spite of all who would sup-
press it and say otherwise. In spite
of efforts to detract from it, to see
that it is denied, it shines through
to all of God's creatures. I believe
this is how the Lord wants it and
what is intended. Easter 2008
has now passed in one sense;
yet we celebrate it each Sunday
(Every Sunday in reality is a "little
Easter"-a day of celebrating when
the Lord rose from the grave), and
the truth and power of the story is


recalled once more.
We have a choice, I suppose, to
listen to those who distract from
the joy and beauty of the story, of
the personal meaning for each of
us, for this sign of great love from
God;. or to see it as the faithful.
and the Lord Himself revealed it
to us. Paul was later to write "And
if Christ has not been raised, our
preaching is useless and so is your
faith...But Christ has indeed been.
raised from the dead, the firstfruits
of those who have fallen asleep (1
Corinthians 15:12...20)."
My lot is cast with those who
interpret the story with beauty,
love, faith, hope, charity,.good-
ness. That is what Easter is about.
It's truth deserves to be remem-
bered more than once a year,
or even once a week, it is for us
always.


Finding gold in dumpster diving Religion News
First Christian to host


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
SI have a confession to make.
I've been known to "dumpster
dive". I'm a firm believer in "one
person's trash is another's trea-
sure". Truth be known, I have
mellowed out over the years, but
recently God led me to go once
more into a garbage bin.
It began months ago with God
getting into my face to take bet-
ter care of His temple called my
body. God got my attention, and
through lifestyle change and exer-
cise, I have managed to drop over
125 pounds.
Life has taught me that there
are consequences with every deci-
sion and action, and such was the
case with my weight loss. I found
that my pants weren't the only
thing falling off. My ring finger is
thinner and my wedding ring was
loose. One night at bedtime, I
realized that my ring was not on


my finger. I had been all over the
church that day and at the fellow-
ship dinner that night the ring
could be anywhere.
I arose early the next morning
and searched the'grass and asphalt
areas where I had traversed the
day before. I even went through
the garbage. No luck. I had re-
signed myself that it was gone and
to convince myself that it was only
a piece of metal.
Two nights later, God gave me
a vision in a dream. (Yes, God still
works that way!) In the dream, I
saw my ring in a pan of meat trim-
mings from the Wednesday night
dinner. The next morning was a
work day at the church, and I went
directly to the dumpster. I located
the bag in my dream, and just for
good measure, pulled out all of
the other garbage bags from the
dinner. A friend helped by dump-
ing the bag from-my dreams onto
the parking lot, and I directed him
to the pan of trimmings. The ring
was right where I had seen it in my


dream!
God still answers prayers-great
and small-and miracles still hap-
pen! In reflection of this miracle
in my life, I have realized that life
is full of lost treasures in the gar-
bage we experience daily. Each of
us has strengths. Each .of us has
places God can use us most effec-
tively. Each of us, by connecting
with God can find gold even in the
midst of life's dumpsters.
Some years ago a radio station
invited people to call in and tell
them the first thing they had said
that morning when they awoke.
It was funny. One guy said, "Do
I smell coffee burning?" Another
one said, "Oh no, I'm late for
work." A woman confessed that
her first words were, "Honey, did
I remember to put the dog out last
night?" and you could hear a muf-
fled curse in the background and a
man growling, "No, you didn't."
One morning, the station phone
rang and the perky DJ said, "Good
morning, you're on the air. What


was the first thing you said when
you rolled out of bed this morn-
ing?" A voice with a Bronx accent
replied, "Hear O Israel, the Lord
our God is one; you shall love the
Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your
mind, and with all your strength."
The caller was reciting the Shema
(Deuteronomy 6:4), so prized by
our Jewish friends. The radio host
did not know how to handle it. He
was looking for junk and instead
encountered gold. There was a
moment of embarrassed silence,.
then the announcer cut to a com-
mercial.
How do you start your day?
With a moan about how difficult
your life is or with a.prayer turning
to God? The garbage we face or
the treasures we have lost do not
have to determine our happiness
or our success. What we need is to
orient our lives in alignment with
God and let Him direct us in the
path we need to follow. Do this,
and we will find our gold.


Call on Him when you're 'out of order!'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First.Christian Church,
Clewiston
When your material posses-
sions fail to function properly (the
- electric range won't heat, the air-
conditioner won't cool, and so
on) you speak of them as "our of
order," and you call the proper ser-
vice man to have them repaired.
Sometimes a life will be "out
of order" Here, too, it is necessary
to get repairs from a Master Work-
man who can straighten out the
difficulty, no matter how largetor
complicated.
Even is your life is just a little
bit out of adjustment, you will find
that this One can help you make
the minor changes necessary for
the more orderly functioning of
your affairs.
Sometimes a slight adjust-


ment in your thinking about other
people will help achieve a better
balance in your relationships. Re-
member that the Master Work-
man made everyone in His image
and likeness. Look for the good,
and you will find it easy to adjust
your thinking to a higher vision of
another. Then watch his attitude
toward you'.change, too.
Maybe your needed adjust-
ment is in the realm of finances.
Here is one way to establish or-
der in your thinking about mate-
rial resources: enlarge your vision
to know that when God created
the universe, He made plenty of
everything! Look around you.
See the unlimited supply of little
things. Think of the leaves of the
trees, each one different. Think
of the birds, each one clothed in
feathers of different hues. Think of
the grass and grains of sand. Try


to count the stars! -
"If God so clothes the grass of
the field, which today is alive and
tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
will he not much more clothe you,
O men of little faith?".
Adjust your thinking to aburi-
dance, and you will always have
plenty to meet every need. Per-
haps you will bring a disease or
some physical difficulty to the
Master Workman for needed at-
tention. The Intelligence that
made your body has all the kno-
whow necessary to repair it. Ad-
just your thinking to God's perfect
ideas of health, harmony, and
wholeness, and you will find that
a real change will begin to mani-
fest in your body.
In many cases, all that is
needed to repair a life that is "out
of order" is a little application of
the oil of love. Love has a way


of lubricating relationships with
other persons, so that they oper-
ate smoothly, without friction. It
also prepares the way for greater
prosperity to come into one's life.
The person who loves and is open
to all the good of God will always
have plenty. More than one physi-
cal difficulty has been literally dis-
solved by the oil of love. Friction
in the body also succumbs to the
lubrication of God's love.
Nothing is hopeless. No case
is beyond the help of the Master
Workman. The manufacturer of
any product understands the prin-
ciple of its operation and knows
how to repair it. Take those things
in your life that are "out of order"
to the Creator, the One who made
you, and you will' be well on the
way to the orderly adjustment of
your mind, your body, and your
affairs.

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computer 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 and
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.
SThe back should be snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-r
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home
row of the keyboard.
A commonly preferred work surface height for keyboard use is about 26" as
opposed to the conventional 29" of most tables or desks.
*Place the monitor 20" 26" from your eyes, depending on the size of the mon-
itor and individual vision conditions.
The monitor and keyboard should be straight ahead.
Keep the monitor free of fingerprints and dust. Both can reduce clarity.
Place document holders close to the screen within the same viewing dis-
tance.. Keep the keyboard and monitor in line.
Adjust the keyboard tilt angle so that wrists are straight.

HEALTHY COMPUTER USE
Although the visual system faces considerable challenges when using a computer, most.
issues can be solved. Remember that problems with the use of the computer cause need-
less discomfort and may rob productivity. Heeding the suggestions made here along with
those made by you r doctor of optometry, will enable you to use your computer comfort-
ably and productively.

participating! 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 produc-
ers and, investigators hope, has
helped to damage the channels
S- through which the complex op-
eration works.
Even as the organization put
some of the men they believed to


be in charge of the production be-
hind bars, the sheriff's office con-
tinues to hear criticisms that the
real criminals are getting away
while they focus on busting mari-
juana 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 co-
caine, we are," said Mayra Egley,
inspector with the sheriff's office,
"but these grow houses, I don't
think people realize how much
money we're talking 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 office
criminal investigations division. .
Captain Johnson tries to ex-
plain the appeal of Hendry Coun-
ty 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 growers live
in the home where they grow the


plants; in others, they simply tend
to the plants on occasion, visit-
ing on a regular basis to maintain
their product.
And tracking the homeowner
becomes a difficult thing to do,
with a host of falsified documents
and common name aliases mak-
ing the search all the more hard-
er.
It isn't certain where the mon-
ey is being funneled, and where
the operation is started. Further
investigations, the sheriff's office
hopes, may shed some light on
this.
"A lot of our suspects reside
in the Miami area," said Captain
Johnson. "I'm not saying they're
originally from there, but we also
track some from New Jersey,
most are from the east coast."

Moving back i



hard to do


The thought of moving out of
mommy and daddy's nest is thrill-
ing to many high school gradu-
ates. But how many consider the
thought of moving back?
S Tiffanie Rivers, 27, is from
Clewiston and recently moved
back home from Tallahassee
three weeks ago after graduating
from Florida A&M University.
S "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 having a
paycheck coming in is pretty de-
pressing."
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 depressing about
him."
Another resident of Clewiston,
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 returned
in pursuit of employment.
"It's easier back home because


Judge Nelson Bailey, Florida

nowadays it is hard to find a job
even with a degree," she says.
"No job, no paycheck, no rent
money."
Robinson elaborates. She
says sometimes you don't plan
to move and you just have to get
up and go. Especially when you
"plan" to find a job after gradua-
tion.
Rivers seconds that sentiment.
"Applications, applications,
applications," she says while roll-
ing her eyes.
"We would all like to be in a
city with more opportunity. But as
they say 'home is where the heart
is.'"
Like Robinson, Rivers also re-
veals an upside to moving home.
"Even though you lose your
privacy when you are in mom's
house, that is a small price to
pay for a trusting and depend-
able babysitter." With a smile she
adds, "I guess you get to,bond
with your family more too, after
being gone for so long."
Both women agree that
Clewiston is a great small city
for raising a family. However, for
young, single girls looking for
food, shopping and excitement,
it's not exactly the premiere city,
the ladies say.
Rivers is currently very active
in her job search and later plans
to attend law school.
Robinson is also preparing to
obtain her masters degree this
fall.

cowboy that dates back almost
500 years to the early Spaniards.
A Palm Beach County judge,
Judge Bailey will be in period
dress and weave interesting
stories about the daily lives of
Cracker cow hunters and their
families.
He paints a vivid picture of
those settings and explains how
those early settlers were able to


survive.
"Horses, cows and orange
trees are all part of our Spanish
heritage," Bailey says.
"People don't realize that the
first cowboys in the United States'.
were in Florida," he added.
A native of Tavares, Judge
Bailey gained an early apprecia-

honed his storytelling skills to a
level that is recognized through-


out the state for its excellence.

Commission revisits sheriff substation's fate


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 in-
vaded the former El Paso Avenue
sheriff's substation with aggres-
sive 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 pla-
za."


At the last county commis-
sion meeting, the motion to pro-
ceed with the construction of
the sheriff's substation was car-
ried. One month later, talks arise
again regarding what to do with
the structure.
Lisa Pickron, a Hendry Coun-
ty Fair trustee, is merely con-
cerned that fairground affiliates
be considered in the decision
making process. Pickron could
not be contacted for comment.
Commissioner Darrell Harris
of District 2 contends that the
substation calls for rebuilding.
"I just thinkwe are at the point
where we need to either rebuild


it or vote to build a new one,"
Commissioner Harris said.
Commissioner Kevin Mc-
Carthy argues that it makes no
sense to rebuild and it should be
torn down.
Last month there were 11
bids that called for the demoli-
tion of the building.
Contrarily, Vice Chairman Bill
Maddox Jr. maintains that he
was "in shock" of the condition
of the building as it is not in as
deplorable condition as he was
lead to imagine.
"I am not saying I am for it or
against it," he said. "I just can't
believe people said it was over


50 percent destroyed."
While the final decision is be-
ing considered, discussions will
continue at least until the next
meeting.
"I don't think we are going to
[solve this] with only four mem-
bers," Commissioner Janet, Tay-
lor said. "Maybe when Commis-
sioner Pelham gets back."
She agrees with Harris.
"It's just going to have to fi-
nally come to a.close ... but we
are going to have to bring it up
at another time" she said.

$17 million 'Tobacco Free Florida' campaign ignites statewide


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) has
launched a $17 million statewide
social marketing and public rela-
tions anti-tobacco campaign the
largest in a decade. The multi-fac-
eted Tobacco Free Florida cam-
paign showcases print, television,
radio and online advertising; and
features cutting edge interactive
platforms, community events,
educational outreach and brand-
ed programs. Partnerships with
renowned brands are expanding
the vast reach and impact of this
vital campaign to combat the per-
vasive problem of tobacco use in
the Sunshine State where each
year, more than 28,000 Floridians
die from smoking.1
Targeting the Florida market
with particular emphasis on the
11-17 age group, adults 18-24,
small businesses, chronic disease
sufferers, pregnant women, low-
income households and parents,
the campaign will touch millions
.statewide. "Tobacco Free Florida
promotes healthy habits among
Florida's youth, emphasizes that
smoking cessation is the single.
most'important step that smokers
can take to enhance the length
and quality of their lives, and edu-
cates the entire population about
the dangers of cigarettes, smoke-
less tobacco and secondhand
smoke," states Florida Surgeon
General Ana M. Viamonte Ros,
M.D., M.P.H.
The comprehensive media
campaign features compelling
print, billboard, broadcast .and
online advertising. The initial se-
ries of ads educates consumers
on tobacco cessation, the dan-
gers of smokeless tobacco and
smoking during pregnancy, and
encourages businesses to comply
with the Florida Clean Indoor Air
Act. More than 200,000 television
and radio spots will air in every
major market in Florida, and on-
line geo-targeted impressions will
exceed 400 million.
The first campaign ad, target-
ing adult smokers, depicts a\child
playing catch by himself as a cau-
tionary voiceover warns of smok-
ing's annual death toll 31,000
children are left fatherless.2
Launched during Super Bowl
XLII, the highest rated champion-
ship game in a decade, the com-
mercial surpassed all expecta-
tions with more than 10 million
"viewers statewide. The commer-
cial was also featured on YouTube
and damassed mnire hjan 270 000
views online Pnht and teleVision
coverage of the commercial's
launch extended into nine major
markets Miami, Jacksonville,
Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg,
Tallahassee, Fort Myers/Naples,
Gainesville, West Palm Beach and
Panama City. The commercial

continues to receive significant
airtime, running during prime-
time shows such as "American
Idol."
The Tobacco Free Florida web-
site,www.tobaccofreeflorida.com
is a comprehensive resource for
both smokers and non-smokers
including cessation tools, tobacco
statistics and a calendar of state-
wide events that campaign teams
will visit. In addition, the site fea-
tures all the interactive compo-
nents of the campaign, free music
downloads from Florida bands
and broadcast commercials.
Given that 90 percent of smok-
ers begin before the age of 18,
and 87 percent of teenagers are
online, the campaign reaches
this key demographic by using


non-traditional marketing meth-
ods and taking advantage of the
tremendous popularity of on-
line interactive technologies like
YouTube.3,4 The campaign has
partnered with YouTube to spon-
sor the YouCare video contest
where entrants share why they
don't smoke. The contest allows
users to vote for their favorite
submission and the top 50 videos
will be shown on the first ever
statewide On-Demand channel
devoted exclusively to the cam-
paign, reaching more than 2 mil-
lion subscribers to Comcast and
Bright House Networks Digital
Cable. A panel of judges will pick
the grand prize winner who will
receive an Apple iMac comput-
er and an iPod touch.

BELLE GLADE-The gift shop
volunteers adorned in pink jack-
ets at Glades General Hospital
give their time and dedication be-
cause they enjoy helping others.
Referred to as the "Pink Ladies,"
most are retired and spend time
selling merchandise at the hospi-
tal's gift shop. The group, in ex-
istence for over 40 years, consists
of 14 members who would like to
see membership expand.
During their most recent
monthly meeting, one of the la-
dies offered to crochet a beautiful
throw in a pattern called "Shifting
Sands" (48" x 64") for the drawing
to benefit Glades Healthcare Foun-
dation. The foundation is leading
the fundraising campaign for the
construction of a new regional
hospital to serve the western
Palm Beach County communities
bordering Lake Okeechobee. Mil-
dred Miller, a long-term resident
of the Glades, created the blanket.
The ladies are very excited about
selling drawing tickets with a goal
to sell over 1,000 at $1 per ticket.
The winning ticket will be drawn
on May 13. Drawing tickets will
be available for purchase in the


gift shop from any of the Pink La-
dies and through Glades General
Hospital's Administration Depart-
ment.
The "Pink Ladies" volunteers
are organized under the auspices
of the Glades General Hospital
Auxiliary Club, who also welcome
men to join. In the past, the Pink
Ladies have been responsible for
purchasing important pieces of
equipment for the hospital such
as newborn invasive blood pres-
sure monitor, incubators, copiers,
cardiac rehab equipment, and
cafeteria tables and chairs. While
their main fundraising comes
from the gift shop, they also host
jewelry sales, book sales, art sales
and uniform sales throughout
the year. David Zechman, CEO of
Glades General remarked, "I am
excited about the Pink Ladies fu-
ture contributions and growth at
our new hospital and how impor-
tant they are to meeting our mis-
sion of serving the community."
The blanket will be displayed
in the gift shop until the draw-
ing in May. The new hospital will
feature a larger gift shop and the
quality and quantity of merchan-


dise will continue to expand as
well.
"We are excited that the fruits
of Mildred's talents and time will
help raise money for our new
community hospital," remarked


Auxiliary President Mary Frances
Burke.
"The afghan is beautiful and is
a labor of love representing all the
Pink Ladies' feelings about Glades
General," she said.

Florida included




in med lab suit


TALLAHASSEE-Attorney Gen-
eral Bill McCollum announced
that Florida and 18 states have
filed an antitrust lawsuit against
Abbott Laboratories and French
drug company Fournier Industrie
et Sante and Laboratories Fourni-
er, S.A., charging the companies
with blocking a cheaper, generic
version of prescription drug Tri-
Cor. The drug, which is used to
reduce high levels of triglycerides
and cholesterol, accounted for
more than $1 billion of Abbott's
sales last year. The complaint was
filed in federal court in Delaware
seeks triple the amount of dam-
ages incurred by the state's pub-
lic health agencies and individual
consumers.
As Florida and our senior pop-
ulation face ever increasing costs
of prescription drugs, we cannot
permit drug companies to edge
out competition and potentially
less expensive generic alterna-
tives," said Attorney General Bill
McCollum.
An investigation conducted by
the Attorney General's Antitrust
Division and other states revealed
allegations that the two drug com-
panies allegedly blocked competi-
tion from less expensive generics
by continuously making minor
changes in the formulations of
TriCor to prevent therapeutically
equivalent generic substitutions.
The states charge that the prod-
uct switches helped thwart ge-


neric competition, allowing the
companies to charge monopoly
prices for TriCor.
"With rising fuel costs, falling
housing values and investment
markets in turmoil, Floridians
50+ are facing tough economic
pressures," said Lori Parham,
AARP's Florida state director. "Us-
ing generic medications is an im-
portant tool in holding down run-
away growth in prescription drug
costs. AARP applauds Attorney
General McCollum's strong stand
on behalf of older Floridians."
The lawsuit also alleges the
companies used patents, which
they obtained by deceiving the
Patent and Trademark Office and
improperly enforced and brought
a series of patent infringement
lawsuits against two generic com-
panies. According to the com-
plaint, Abbott and Fournier filed
at least ten lawsuits against two
generic companies who were at-
tempting to obtain FDA approval
for their generic versions of Tri-
Cor. Abbott and Fournier even-
tually lost or dismissed all of the
lawsuits. As a result of the prod-
uct switches and patent litiga-
tion, Abbott and Fournier have
successfully thwarted generic
competition and denied consum-
ers and state agencies the choice
of a lower priced therapeutically
equivalent generic.

Young people to 'Kick Butts'


HENDRY-Young people from
Hendry County are joining thou-
sands of kids across the country
who are taking part in Kick Butts
Day (KBD), a nationwide initiative
that makes kids leaders in the ef-
fort to stop youth tobacco use.
As part of the Kick Butts Day cel-
ebration, LaBelle and Clewiston
High School students are educat-
ing their peers on the number of
lives lost due to tobacco use and
exposure.
Throughout the year, youth
advocates take part in a variety
of activities to protect kids from
tobacco, including working with
elected officials to develop poli-
cies that reduce youth tobacco
use and exposure to secondhand
smoke and educating their peers
about tobacco companies' decep-
tive marketing practices.
On April 2, elementary, middle
and high school students across
the country are organizing KBD
events to fight youth tobacco use.
Young people will participate in a
variety of KBD activities such as
surveying tobacco advertising in
their communities; urging local of-
ficials to support anti-tobacco or-
dinances; and tossing caps, hats,
jackets and other items carrying
tobacco brand names into giant
dumpsters. In 2007, thousands
of kids carried out nearly 2,000


events. We expect this number to
increase in 2008.
"Kids are a powerful part of the
solution to reducing youth tobacco
use," said Matthew L. Myers, presi-
dent of the Campaign for Tobacco-
Free Kids, which coordinates KBD.
"For Kick Butts Day 2008, kids are
sending two important messages:
they want the tobacco industry to
stop targeting them with advertis-
ing and they want elected leaders
at all levels to do more to protect
them from tobacco."
Tobacco use is the leading
preventable cause of death in the
United States, killing more than
400,000 people every year. Every
day, more than 4,000 kids try their
first cigarettes; another 1,000 kids
become addicted smokers, one-
third of whom will die premature-
ly as a result.
The Washington, D.C.-based
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is
one of the largest non-governmen-
tal education and advocacy initia-
tives ever undertaken to decrease
youth tobacco use in the United
States. The Campaign strives to
build a healthier future for our chil-
dren by reducing tobacco use and
exposure to secondhand smoke.
For more information contact,
Valarie James at 863-674-4056 ext
128 or you can visit the KBD web-
site at www.kickbuttsday.org.

old, has an older brother, Justin,
and supportive parents and ex-
tended family. Skye is in the tenth

BELLE GLADE-A 26-year-old
man was killed on March 13, after
crashing into a restaurant building.
According to the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office, at about
8:16 p.m., Aron Gonzalez was driv-
ing a 2005 GMC Yukon westbound
on East Canal Street at a high rate
of speed.
After the victim reportedly drove
off the south side of East Canal
Street at Southeast Third Street, his
vehicle plowed into a hedge and
power pole at the corner of South-
east Second Street, detectives said.
Investigators revealed that al-


most immediately after the victim's
vehicle crossed over into a nearby
grass field, the GMC Yukon over-
turned and crashed through the
Fish Restaurant building at the cor-
ner of East Canal Street and South-
east First Street.
Officials said that the driver was
not wearing a seatbelt at the time of
the crash and after the victim was
ejected from the vehicle, he was
pronounced dead on the scene.
Teri Barbera, the sheriff's office
spokeswoman, said that investiga-
tors are currently working the de-
tails of the incident, but added that
it will take some time to get the de-
tails of the fatal accident.

Festival
Continued From Page 1

ice Lee is carrying on that proud
legacy celebrated by the members
of the Harlem community and
surrounding counties as far as
Dade. Lee and her team of friends
and colleagues are committing
their Tuesday evenings from now
until show time to planning, orga-
nizing and reviewing the commit-
ments for the 32nd Annual Brown
Sugar Festival.
"I am always looking for ways
to praise our community," says
Lee, only a second-year presi-
dent officiating the event. "Things
went so smoothly last year, we
can only hope for a bigger and
better Brown Sugar."
Though she admits she had
her reservations the second time
around due to the amount of
-commitment incorporated with
the festival, Lee is very proud of
last years outcome as well as the
amount of support her commit-
tee is showing this year.
"Everyone is taking delegation
very well," Lee says, admitting
to overworking herself at times.
"We are enthusiastic about put-
ting on a great show."
The festival takes place on


May 3 on Harlem park grounds
between 10th and 11th streets be-
ginning as early as one can stand
the heat. The actual festival kicks
off with a parade beginning on
Florida Avenue, advancing down
Harlem Academy, down 12th
street to Virginia Avenue, to end
at the park where the festival of-
ficially begins.
Though the:festival is the focal
point of the celebration, there will
be a week-long schedule of events
preceding the festival including a
spades tournament, talent show,
softball and basketball tourna-
ments, teen dance and, of course,
the Brown Sugar Pageant.
Anyone interested in helping
or participating in any events re-
lating to the Brown Sugar Festival
may contact Mrs. Janice Lee at
863-233-9042. Again, meetings
are held every Tuesday evening at
6 p.m: at the Harlem Library. Vol-
unteers welcome.

tacted at msburchell@gmail.com

ardous wastes and business and
commercial debris.
The center would like to em-
phasize that this cleanup is strictly
for residents in the unincorpo-
rated areas of the county. In other
words, they will not be accepting
any waste from area businesses.
"As you know, many of our res-
idents do not have the means to
get their C&D [construction and
demolition] items to the trans-
fer stations, either financially or
physically," Ashley says. She con-
tinues, "We want to assist them
by making this disposal available
to them as much as possible."
Ashley attributes getting the
program off the ground primarily
to Commissioner Bo Pelham.
"He worked diligently with
the Waste Management Depart-


Shooting

If you have any information
about this case, you are encour-


ment and Waste Services Inc.,
our franchise hauler, to get the
best program to suit the needs of
the public to provide the service
for minimal cost. Thereby, keep-
ing the cost down to an estimated
$3.66 per home."
Although the City of Clewis-
ton is holding a "Spring Cleaning
Event" the same day, this schedul-
ing is with no other intent but to
get as much positive response as
possible for the sake of the resi-
dents.
Again, volunteer groups and
organizations are welcome to
help with the gathering and de-
positing of the materials at the
designated locations.
If these or any others are in-
terested in helping to beautify the
community, contact the Hendry

Agencies partner



to find citrus



disease answers


LAKELAND-Faced with dis-
eases that threaten the future of
the citrus industry, the Florida
Department of Citrus (FDOC) and
the Florida Citrus Commission
(FCC) contracted recently with
the National Academy of Sciences
(NAS) to find solutions for green-
ing and canker. The National
Academy of Sciences, the most
prestigious scientific organization
in the United States, will bring
together leading scientific advi-
sors to work with FDOC's current
stable of expert citrus scientists to
determine the most effective and
efficient way to solve citrus dis-
eases in Florida.
As an independent, third party,
NAS will bring together more than
60 leading scientific experts to:
*Review research efforts to
date and identify the most prom-
ising future endeavors
*Request and review propos-
als for new research to be con-
ducted in 2008-2009
*Develop a long-range strate-
gic research plan
*Publish an expert report rec-
ommending implementable solu-
tions for citrus growers
"We are prepared to fund the
research necessary to find a solu-
tion to greening and to actively
communicate research discbver-
ids to growers," said.Ken Keck,
FDOC executive director. ."The
FCC passed a resolution in Janu-
ary to provide necessary support


to the research effort in a respon-
sible, accountable manner. FDOC
will work closely with the entire
citrus industry, especially grow-
ers, to support this urgent and im-
mediate need for research fund-
ing," he added.
"We commend the FDOC and
FCC for taking a leadership role
in commissioning greening re-
search. The National Academy
of Sciences is a world renowned
organization that will bring in-
stant credibility and unmatched
depth of knowledge to the Florida
citrus industry's research efforts,"
said Michael W. Sparks, executive
vice president/CEO of Florida Cit-
rus Mutual. "Growers should find
comfort in the fact-the Academy,
along with the Florida Citrus Pro-
duction Research Advisory Coun-
cil (FCPRAC), will be overseeing
the direction of the research and
providing accountability to the
process."
"The guidance of the NAS will
enable all citrus industry stake-
holders to efficiently and effec-
tively find a solution to disease
and protect the future of our in-
dustry," Mr. Keck concluded.

SWildfires Where are they lurking?


As far back as November, lo-
cal residents were being advised
that this could be one of the worst
wildfire seasons ever. At that time,
the local Division of Forestry area
of Lee, Collier and Hendry County
were already experiencing dry-
ness readings as high as those
seen in April and May. With more
dry weather forecast, things could
only be expected to get worse -
much worse.
But the worst did not materi-


alize. Instead, we received a dose
of morning dew and fog, higher
than usual relative humidity and
much more rain that expected.
Even a cold front that included a
killing frost
Through the area did not make
a difference. Wildfire activity has
been below normal.
"Typically, the Division will
respond to an average of 51 wild-
fires
during the first three months


of the year," said Gerry Lacavera,
Wildfire Mitigation Specialist with
the Division. "So far, we have only
had 35 wildfires and all but six
were less than ten acres in size."
"Keep in mind," continued
LaCavera, "that people, not light-
ning, start
wildfires this time of year. I
think a large part of wildfire starts
being lower than expected is
that people are listening to our
messages and are being much


more careful. We appreciate their
help and ask that they. continue
to use extreme care whenever
they are using anything that in-
volves a flame, high heat or can
cause sparks. We still have a long
wait for regular summer rains to
start."

can do to help, visit the Florida
Division of Forestry web page at

Florida's Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative
(FHREDI) and the Glades County
Economic Development Council
encourage area businesses inter-
ested in exporting their products
to sign up and participate in a
trade mission to Mexico, sched-
uled for May 11-16.
According to FHREDI interim
executive director Cheryl Sharp,
by teaming with the EDC, FHRE-
DI, and their statewide economic
development partner, Enterprise
Florida, businesses can take ad-
vantage of this opportunity to en-
hance their customer base.
According to Ms. Sharp, who
has been working to identify com-
panies in the Heartland interested
in exporting their products, the
best trade opportunities include
Airport and Ground Support
Equipment, Automotive Parts and
Supplies, Education and Training
SServices, Electronic Components,
Hotel and Restaurant Equipment,
Housing & Construction, Plastic
Materials and Resin, Security and
Safety Equipment and Supplies,
Telecommunication Equipment,
Transportation Infrastructure
Equipment and Services, as well
as Travel and Tourism Services.
According to Julie Balzano-
Pizarro of Enterprise Florida, the
mission coordinator, the mission
will include prescheduled ap-
pointments with potential busi-
ness partners in Mexico, which is'
the third largest market for goods


made in Florida.
Last year, Florida sold more
than $3 billion of its goods to
Mexico, a near 34 percent in-
crease over 2006.
U.S. product and service cate-
gories with the highest prospects
for sales to Mexico include hotel
'equipment, security equipment,
travel services, environmental
technology and franchises.
The export sales mission will
take business leaders and eco-
nomic development profession-
als to Monterrey and Veracruz,
Mexico.
"Monterrey is a headquarters
site for many leading Mexican
multi-national firms. And Vera-
cruz, a prominent, industrial and
manufacturing core, is home to
the Port of Veracruz, the largest
cargo port in Mexico with strong
ties to Florida," said Ms. Balzano-
Pizarro. "This event will help Flor-
ida businesses identify and es-
tablish relationships with buyers
in these two important markets,
Monterrey and Veracruz. Both are
key business centers."
