Charity helps
children with life
threatening diseases
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
Specializing in sending criti-
cally ill and disabled children
on the outdoor adventure of
their dreams, the United Special
Sportsman Alliance is a not-for-
profit wish-granting charity that
gives kids something to look for-
ward to.


Made up of 100 percent vol-
unteer staff, USSA has bonded
together for the common goal
of helping to empower all chal-
lenged Americans to follow their
dreams of living an exciting life
in the great outdoors.
Brigid O'Donoghue is the
president and founder 'of the
charity.
A resident of Wisconsin,
O'Donoghue traveled to Clewis-
ton to make some kids' fishing
dream come true.
"I just see the joy in their
hearts, it's priceless."


As the kids play by the pool
in the perfect Saturday sun af-
ter an afternoon of fishing,, a
humble Ms. O'Donoghue begins
to speak of just this one of the
over 4,400 wishes her organiza-
tion has granted throughout the
country.
"It was awesome today. We
had seven children that have
life-threatening illnesses or dis-
abilities and their parents and
siblings," O'Donoghue boasted.
"And the reason why I brought
that young man here is cause it's
too cold [there] and he didn't


have long to go ... he didn't have
a mom and dad so I brought
him. I had to go to Florida cause
I was guaranteed to have warm
weather."
She goes on to add that some
of the families came from as far
as Ohio.
A majority of the families, she
said, came from Florida, most of
them being from Orlando.
The USSA services a wide
range of ages.
"I think the oldest kid (here)
is 16 and the youngest is 6."
Mark King is one of the guides

Leaders join in water plant event


Plant to provide
clean drinking
water
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Local lead-
ers, community members and
Congressman Tim Mahoney
met last Friday for the official
ribbon-cutting ceremony of
the city's new water treatment
plant.
The plant went online late
last year, and ,has produced
many thousands of gallons of
clean, filtered water to resi-
dents, but leaders wanted to


formally recognize the work
that went into making the proj-
ect a reality,
The state-of-the-art facility
came at a very low expense to
the city, with numerous agen-
cies providing grant funding
to pay for the majority of the
costs associated with planning,
designing and constructing the
plant.
The single largest source of
funding came through way of
the United States Department
of Agriculture, which pledged
$18.5 million -- the largest do-
nation of any Florida project in
the organization's history -- to
paying for the plant.
"This doesn't have a lot of


sex appeal to a lot of people,
and it won't be on Entertain-
ment Tonight, but it's (treat-
ment plant) of real impor-
tance," said Ronald Whitfield,
representing the USDA.
Other sources included the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Commerce and the
state of Florida.
To the people behind the
project, it was an exercise in
'efficiency and excellence in
planning from the moment that
U.S. Sugar, the city's longtime
water supplier, announced that
it would no longer be able to

at Roland Martin Marina, the site
of this charity event. Along with
his wife, Diane King, they did a
lot of fundraising to prepare for
this special occasion.
"Mark and Diane are the two
that pretty much got it going,"
said O'Donoghue. "I am just the
person who helped them find
the children."
Kings says he has never met a
more grateful bunch of kids.
"They have all come up to
thank us, even the little kids. It's

County


tackles


realities


of budget
By Patty Brant
INI Florida
The Hendry County Board of
County Commissioners (BOCC)
is grappling with budget cuts -
and the realities they represent
for employees and residents
alike. The serious cut back in ad
valorem taxes from the passage
of Amendment 1 last January
coupled with a worsening eco-
nomic downturn are bringing
budget constraints to the fore
earlier than usual.
Commissioners held a two-
day workshop last week to take
a hard look at preliminary fig-
ures, attempting to bring the big
picture into sharper focus.
The county has already laid
off three employees in building
inspection/code enforcement;
one was transferred to another
department. The county has also
initiated a freeze on hiring for 13
positions currently open, includ-
ing maintenance (2), Emergency
Medical Services (2), mail servic-
es (.5) and custodial (1.5) posi-
tions and seven from the County
Transportation Trust Fund posi-
tions.
At this point, there has already
been a ten percent reduction in
the total BOCC workforce. Other
cost saving actions include not
purchasing two budgeted ve-
hicles; proposing over $300,000
in further Road and Bridge bud-
.get reductions; a decline in sales
tax revenue of over $200,000;
and a $28,000 reduction in GIS
from ad valorem funding. All of
the actions to this point add up

Two questions; no answer but a call to get busy


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was behind a man at an
airline ticket counter waiting to
catch a flight home. He was con-
cerned about making his flight
too; arriving a bit late. He was
asking the ticket agent "will I have
time enough to get to the gate?",
"How far is it to the gate?", "Will
thy luggage arrive?", "Can you
call the gate and tell them I'm on
my way?", "Is the flight closed out
yet?" and on and on. He looked
at me and I asked him "Do you
want to talk or fly?" He picked up
his briefcase and ran for the gate
without another word.
SAnother example of "do you
want to fish or cut bait?" This day
in Church calendars is Ascension
Day. It is the day celebrated tradi-
tionally when the Lord returned
to Heaven after His earthly stay
with us. We read that he had
met with His followers after His
resurrection and they asked Him
"Lord, will you at this time re-
store the Kingdom of Israel?" He
said to them "it is not for you to
know the times or the seasons...
but you shall receive power when


the Holy Spirit has come to you
and you shall be my witnesses...
and when he said this, as they
were looking on, He was lifted up
and a cloud took Him out of sight
(Acts 1:6-9).
Then followed that two "men
in white" told His followers "Men
of Galilee, why do you stand look-
ing into Heaven?(v.10)." From
time to time people ask about the
"end times" and when the world
would come to an end. I remind
them "It is not for us to know".
Someone mailed me a chart
once predicting the date and time
and how they calculated it; it was
wrong, of course, as if they could
discern what even the Lord did
not give us to know. That's clear
enough; the question is a use-
less one to ask. There are always
enough things going on in the
world to be pessimistic about and
say "Aha! this must be the time"
but our track records of predic-
tions are only poor attempts to
second-guess God.
The boy who cried "wolf" lost
his believers and really left them
unprepared when the wolf finally
appeared. Instead the Lord says
"You shall receive power" and


they do. They stop worrying and
get busy.
When the Lord ascends, sud-
denly two angelic figures ask a
question "Men of Galilee, why do
you stand looking into Heaven?"
They realize their task is not to
contemplate but to get busy. This
busy-ness is how they honor the
Ascension of Jesus. That is how
we can honor Him too.
There are those who in the
name of religion who are mas-
ters at posing questions that are
meaningless, talking about ques-
tions that nobody is asking, and
spending time avoiding the real
work of our ministries. Someone
told me about an Eastern church
that was arguing about minor
points on the eve of the Russian
revolution; the world was in ter-
moil around them and they were
fixated on their own small mat-
ters. Navel-gazing is not our call;
the call is "Why are you stand-
ing here?" It is a call to get busy
in a world torn by wars and do
what we can do to make peace,
a world full of shortages and our
call to help share what we can, a
world facing climate change and
our need to use our resources

wisely, a world with sicknesses
that can be cured and our willing-
ness to help others with our heal-
ing gifts, a world full of all sorts
of needs and our willingness to
translate our contemplations into
acts. These are the ways we "as-
cend' in God's eyes; to rise to a
higher plane of living and show
what our belief is really about.
The passages remind us not to
worry about what we can't know
or to do more than stand around
staring into Heaven; but to put


to work what we believe and to
do something! Help somebody,
stand up for those who need our
support. Faith isn't only about con-
templation or just saying prayers
or just being "pious"; it is about
what follows from our belief.
That's how the faithful "ascend"
and prepare to ascend when our
days here are finally finished.
The question posed by Jesus'
followers got them no answer:
the question posed by His mes-
sengers was a call to action. That


question had an answer for all of
us: translate your faith into action.
The question about whether we
want to fish or cut bait has its'
place in God's plans too: do we
want to stand there or get busy?
In the midst of all of the pessimis-
tic things going on in the world; I
can do something no matter how
small or seemingly insignificant -
as one group says "I cannot do
everything, but I can do some-
thing." That's our call - that's our
way of ascending with Him.

Letters to the Editor


Dear Editor,
I would like to take this oppor-
tunity to give a big round of ap-
plause to the people, who have
decided to become part of the en-
vironment solution by taking re-
thinkable containers to the drop-
off bins, instead of adding to the
environment-problem by sending
to the landfill.
I'm not sure what has hap-
pened to Hendry County's Five-
Year-Plan, but I hear that Curb-
side Recycling price is too much
for the initial start up; Ugh!
If we do not take the time to
be part of the solution then, no


matter where we live in Hendry
County our tax dollar is being
spent to send our trash/waste
to some other area for disposal.
Bigger ugh! (This is most likely
what happened to our former
appointed landfill space) What
happens when we no longer
have anywhere to send the trash/
waste? Oh that is right, it won't be
our problem, we will all be dead,
and our grandchildren will be up
to their ears in nasty!
There are bins everywhere to
dispose of Plastic, Glass, Card-
board and more. The Clewiston
News printed a nice front page


article just a few weeks ago they
may have some back issues.
A great way of disposing of
Aluminum Beverage Cans will to
help turn them into a skate board
park for our children and grand-
children!
New Harvest Church, located
beside Sonny's on Sugarland
Highway has an ongoing fund-
raiser where they collect alumi-
num cans (all cans- should be
rinsed and crushed whenever
possible). New Harvest has a
goal to construct a Skate Board
Park so our kids can have a safe/
fun place to spend their spare


time while staying out of trouble.
A double edge sword, the landfill
saves space and the income will
make the Skate Board Park a real-
ity sooner than later.
If you would like to get in-
volved and join the families who
drop off Aluminum beverage cans
regularly to the containers located
at the south side of the church of-
fice start saving cans today.
For more information or to
arrange a home pickup call 863-
983-3181 or 863-983-4314
Sincerely,
Judy Fish

A call is made to the National Day of Prayer


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Since the first call to prayer
in 1775 when the Continental
Congress asked the colonies to
pray for wisdom and guidance
in forming our nation, our coun-
try has come together numerous
times to seek divine guidance and
help. In 1952, a joint resolution
by Congress declared an annual
national day of prayer. In 1988,
the National Day of prayer was
officially set as the first Thursday
of May. This year, on May 1st,
people will come together in


communities all across America
at noontime to unite in prayer for
our troops, our leaders, and our
nation. In Clewiston, we are gath-
ering at noon in Civic Park, across
from the Clewiston Inn. If you
don't have other plans, we would
love to have you join us. We'll
even provide lunch! Wherever
you are though, please take a mo-
ment to break from whatever you
are doing at mid-day to turn your
heart to our Lord. Prayer works,
and when God's people come to-
gether in prayer, great things hap-
pen for God's kingdom.
From our Nation's humble be-


innings, prayer has guided our
leaders and played a vital role in
the life and history of the United
States. Americans of many dif-
ferent faiths share the profound
conviction that God listens to the
voice of His children and pours
His grace upon those who seek
Him in prayer. By surrendering
our lives to our loving Father, we
learn to serve His eternal pur-
poses, and we are strengthened,
refreshed, and ready for all that
may come.
On this National Day of Prayer,
we ask God's continued blessings
on our country. This year's theme,


"Prayer! America's Strength and
Shield," is taken from Psalm 28:7,
"The Lord is my strength and my
shield; my heart trusts in him, and
I am helped."
On this day, we pray for the
safety of our brave men and
women in uniform, for their fami-
lies, and for the comfort and re-
covery of those who have been
wounded. We pray for the up-
coming election and the future of
our nation. We pray for the econ-
omy and what the future may
hold. We pray for our communi-
ties, our neighbors, our families,
and ourselves.


Prayer is the bridge between
Heaven and Earth. It is the con-
duit through which the spiritual
realm is brought into our every-
day lives. Prayer is the way our
spirits breathe. Just as our lungs
require oxygen and are designed
to seek it out, so our spirits re-
quire the presence of God and
are designed to seek Him out.
We find ourselves trying our best
to pray because it is as needful
as air for our lungs. Prayer is the
method God uses to provide not
only our daily needs from food to
shelter but also comfort, strength
and guidance. The late E. Stanley


Jones, missionary and preacher,
wrote, "Prayer ... is the opening
of a channel from my emptiness
into His fullness."
America trusts in the abiding
power of prayer and asks for the
wisdom to discern God's will in
times of joy and of trial. As we ob-
serve this National Day of Prayer,
we recognize our dependence on
the Almighty, we thank Him for
the many blessings He has be-
stowed upon us, and we put our
country's future in His hands.


Humankind's inherent, natural Joy Of Belonging


By Jackie Miller
All people feel the need at
sometime to belong - to other
persons in a family relationship,
to organizations for group activ-
ity, or in a particular job in order
to express certain innate capabili-
ties.
The desire to belong is really
an expression of man's oneness
with all mankind, which may or
may not be consciously recog-
nized.
Many people become "join-
ers" in order to express this desire
to dissolve loneliness, or distance,
in oneness. They put their names
on various membership rolls and


take offices and enter activities
in many different organizations.
They seek to be a part of the
whole.
Others enter (wisely or unwise-
ly) into certain personal relation-
ships, where they feel the great
need to belong can be fulfilled.
If this is done in the expectation
that fulfillment is to be found in
other persons, then there is disap-
pointment.
Some expect to find their an-
swer in work, in association with
a certain company or industry,
where they have a sense of be-
longing. This is good, and work
- the expression of man's pow-
ers and abilities - is necessary


to every individual. But even the
satisfactory use of one's talents in
a congenial atmosphere will not
completely gratify his needs to
belong.
Essentially, man needs to be-
long because he is a part of his
universe. He requires within him-
self an awareness of his relation-
ships with all men everywhere,
and with all good in the world.
This need can never be satisfied
simply by joining or expressing in
outer ways, but must be resolved
within the individual as the real-
ization of oneness.
Most people, in their own
mind, set themselves apart from
others, emphasizing differences


rather than similarities, disagree-
ment rather than agreement.
Even though they may belong to
organizations, in the very process
of belonging they divide them-
selves up into factions. In family
groups, they build differences of
opinion into fissures of separa-
tion. And in business, failure to
receive personal credit or acclaim
for a job well done may result in a
sense of separateness.
Do you realize that you are a
part of mankind? As a person,
you belong to the human race,
and if you would truly experience
the joy of belonging you must re-
alize this.
You may not be in accord with


everything that others think or
feel or express, but essentially,
in your own spiritual nature, you
are one with the good in all men,
whether or not you can see it at
a given time. The need to belong
is an inner need to recognize this
oneness with good everywhere.
If you continue to think of your-
self as separate and apart, and to
emphasize differences, you will
be just one puny human being.
But man was create for oneness,
for belonging to the overall plan
of good.
Try thinking of yourself as be-
longing in this great plan, realize
your oneness with the good in all
men, and you will find the true


joy of belonging. Jesus prayed in
John 17:20-21 "Neither pray I for
these alone (the apostles) but for
them also that shall believe on me
through their word, THAT THEY
ALL MAY BE ONE, as thou Father
art in me, and I in thee, that they
MAY BE ONE in us, that the world
may believe that thou didn't send
me."
The basis for Christian Unity
is the word of the Apostles who
were divinely inspired. God is
not the author of confusion, but
peace.

TALLAHASSEE - Florida was
recently announced as one of
only two states to receive a Five-
Star Policy Award from the In-
ternational Reading Association
(IRA) this year.
The award is part of the IRA's
Five-Star Policy Recognition Pro-
gram, which encourages states


and provinces to adopt and im-
plement policies that support ef-
fective literacy instruction for all
children. Since the program's in-
ception in 2001, only eight states
have earned the award.
"This award serves as further
verification that Florida 's reading
initiatives and strategies are mak-
ing a difference," said Education
Commissioner Eric J. Smith. "I
commend the Just Read, Florida !
team for the unwavering commit-
ment they have shown in provid-
ing Florida's children with the gift


of literacy."
The award will be officially
presented during the Council
Awards Ceremony in Atlanta on
Sunday, May 4.
Florida is being recognized for
completing stage one of the Five-
Star Policy Award comprehensive
two-stage, two-year process:
* Stage 1: State or provincial
IRA councils begin the recogni-
tion process by completing nomi-
nation forms for their state or
province.
Based on the information


provided in the forms, IRA will
determine whether the state or
province has promising policies
in each of the five star areas.
* Stage 2: The state or pro-
vincial council will work with
government officials and repre-
sentatives of IRA to determine if
the promising policies are being
implemented.
Just Read, Florida ! makes
reading a priority in Florida 's
public schools and among the
community groups and volunteer
organizations that support them.

And yet another Rose for the ages


Dan Culbert - Extension
Horticulture Agent
Beyond the stresses of daily
life, gardening can be a way to re-
lax and enjoy what's right with the
world. Because we have recently
endured more than our share
of challenging events, I have re-
solved to write something attrac-
tive for the home and garden that
can help us move into a special
place in your Florida Yard.
Today's column will introduce
a very nice plant that can be en-
joyed by anyone, the Desert Rose.
If you take the time to select and
properly care for this tropical
ornamental, you will be repaid
many times over with beauty for
years and years to come.
The Desert Rose (Adenium
obesum) is a succulent plant na-
tive to east Africa and parts of Ara-
bia. Because it produces beautiful
blooms with little care, it is a fa-
vorite of many gardeners. During
the summer months in Florida
it will produce large numbers of
flowers with two inch trumpet
like shapes. Bloom can be seen in
shades of pink, rose or white.
It is a member of the Dogbane
(Apocynaceae) Family, which in-
cludes many other familiar topi-
o cal plants such as the Allamanda,
Carissa, Frangipani, Oleander,
0 and the milkweeds. All of these
plants, including the Desert Rose,
contain poisonous substances,
and most will bleed a white sap
when cut.
The plant itself has very fleshy
stems and will mature to form a
large fat bulb-like structure at the
base of the plant. It is a small to

medium sized shrub and can
grow to be 4-5 feet tall. Because
of it short growth habit, it often
looks like a natural bonsai plant.
(It is also a popular plant with
bonsai enthusiasts.)
Three elements: think Bright,
Warm and Dry
Direct sunlight to bright light
is a must for these plants all year
long. A southern facing porch
is an ideal spot for this plant. If
grown in too much shade, the
Desert Rose will not flower prop-
erly and is likely to become leggy.
In darker locations, especially in
humid places like Florida, it can
also develop plant diseases.
It thrives at temperatures up to
90 degrees but will not survive too
many hours below 40 degrees. To
protect the Desert Rose from our
occasional cold temperatures,
consider growing it in a pot. That
way it can be brought inside on
those few days when the ther-
mometer dips into less than tropi-
cal conditions. During the cooler
times, the plant is kept a little bit
on the dry side, as it does better
with a seasonal period of dor-
mancy.
The third critical element to
success with the Desert Rose is
restricted soil moisture. Remem-
ber that succulents require little
water. To achieve optimum re-
sults requires both well drained
soil and careful attention to avoid
overwatering. Water should be
withheld if day-time temperatures
fall below 80oF or the weather is
cool and cloudy. In South Flor-
ida, regularly scheduled water-
ing should be done only during


extended hot, dry weather, such
as our late spring. Be sure to feel
the soil first to insure it is dry be-
fore adding water. When it needs
water, water it thoroughly until
it drains from the bottom, then
don't water again until the soil
dries out completely.
Pots or Planted?
Adenium can be grown in any
container with proper drainage.
Unglazed ceramic pots are best
because they allow the soil to dry
out between each watering. For
the long haul, remember that if a
clay pots are used, they must be
wide enough to allow for expan-
sion of the thickened base of the
stem (the caudex) to prevent the
container from cracking. A free
draining potting mix should al-
ways be used.
Success with direct planting
of the Desert Rose into a Florida
Yard should only be considered
if the conditions are ideal for this
plant. Instructions for preparing a
raised bed of well-drained soil are
available from our office. Be sure
the spot will get lots of sun and
will not sit in a wet spot before
plant it in the landscape.
Nutrition needed by this plant
is normal for other container
grown ornamentals. Best results
can be obtained by frequent ap-
plications of liquid fertilizer (half
strength 20/20/20) when the
plant is in active growth stages.
Withholding nutrients during pe-
riods of dormancy. Slow release
granular fertilizers are also a good
choice.
Pests and Propagation
Attention to proper watering


and plant placement will take
care of most plant disease on
the Desert Rose. There are few
insect pests on this plant. Scale
and mealy bugs sometime occur
on the leaves. Soap based insec-
ticides should be used, as certain
chemical insecticides may dam-
age the Desert Rose - so read the
label first. Careful regular inspec-
tion of the plant can catch these
critters early enough to keep them
from becoming a problem.
Growing a new Desert Rose
from existing plants takes a little
care. Cuttings can be made, but
some references report that plants
grown from cuttings may not
develop the thickened bulbous
base. Seed are rarely produced
by this plant, but if they produce
the long seed pods, growing out
the seed into plants is possible
(it is also available from our of-
fice.) Extreme hobbyists have
even been able to graft superior
selections onto a rootstock with
impressive results.

New Fundraiser
PTO has a new fundraiser,
Recycle for Education! You have
received flyers in your mailboxes
today to send home. Please en-


courage your students to collect
phones and empty inkjet and
toner cartridges. A collection
box has been placed in the front
office. Unfortunately we have
started this fundraiser a bit late in
the school year, but hope to get
this really going next school year
and plan to have a contest for the
class that collects the most.
This is a easy fund raising
program (like Boxtops). It's easy
because there is absolutely no in-
vestment. To raisefunds through
this program we just collect empty
printer Inkjet and Toner cartridges
and used cell phones. They pay
us cash for all listed cartridges
and cell phones we collect. They


have sent us collection boxes and
shipping supplies free. So there
are no costs. They accept most
printer ink and toner cartridges,
Laser fax cartridges and desktop
copier cartridges including the
Canon PC line of copiers. You can
look up exactly which are accept-
ed on the web site: http://www.
recycle4charity.com.
Every year over 400 million cell
phones, inkjet and toner cartridg-
es are thrown away, lets recycle
and earn money for Westside.

State title auest falls short for G.C. Raiders

the long jump at 22-10.25 at the Class 2A state track champi-
onships, held on April 26 at Showalter Field in Winter Park.

On April 26, Pahokee's Micanor Regis puts his best effort in

INI Florida
WINTER PARK - Glades Cen-
tral's Vanessa Anthony captured
the gold medal in the girls' 300-
meter hurdles at the Class 2A state
track championships in Winter
Park, held on April 26.
Although the Lady Raiders ju-
nior became an individual state
champion, it was bittersweet feel-
ing overall.
Anthony won the 300-meter
hurdles with a laser-recorded


time of 44.90 seconds, but did not
qualify for the 100-meter finals
after finishing ninth overall in the
preliminaries with a time of 16.45
seconds - the top eight runners
overall in each preliminary qual-
ify for the finals.
The most disappointing mo-
ment for Anthony and the Lady
Raiders, however, was when they
found out that they finished third
overall, falling short of their ulti-
mate goal - a team state champi-
onship.
The Glades Central girls would
finish with 30 points, behind
Golden Gate (32 points; Class
'2A state runner-up) and Raines,
which won the Class 2A state
championship with 70 points.


"Today, we came in with high
hopes like we wer going to win
the state meet," Anthony said in a
resigned tone.
"We were confident and we
had the total package but things
happen for a reason. Everyone
ran their hardest, we worked to-
gether as a team and we stayed
together."
The finish was especially dis-
heartening for senior sprinter Vi-
onni Brown, who couldn't fight
back tears after learning about
the team results.
Although Brown finished fifth
overall in the girls' 100-meter fi-
nals with a time of 12.53 seconds,
she did not qualify in the 200-me-
ter finals, finishing 11th overall at
25.84 seconds.
The girls 4X100 and 4X400 re-
lay teams each received medals
as they finished fifth (48.99 sec-
onds) and eighth (4:06.38) over-
all, respectively.
Senior shot put throwers
Deasha Everett and Nashay Jo-
seph placed fourth (37-9) and
fifth (37-1) overall, respectively,
while senior Willisha Wrisper
finished 11th overall in the triple
jump at 32-6.5.
"We didn't accomplish our
goal in the field events," Everett
said.
"Me and Nashay wanted to fin-
ish in the top two in the shot put,
but it just didn't work out for us."
Jemeaul Calnek, the Lady
Raiders girls coach, consoled the
team after finding out the team
results.
"I'm extremely proud of ev-
eryone," Calnek told the girls in a
group meeting.
"I don't doubt that we'll be
back again. I know we're going
to lose a lot next year, but I trust
everyone who will come back
next year will find a way to get it
done."
Glades Central has won a
state-record 10 girls track champi-
onships, the last coming in 1996.
But Anthony, who will become a
senior next year, would love noth-
ing more than for the Raiders to
claim their 11th team state title
before she graduates.
"We gotta bounce back next
year and try to do it the next
time," Anthony said. "I want to
get state for Calnek and my team

Disappointing finish
for the Glades Central
boys
Willie C. McDonald, the boys
track coach, will have to wait an-
other year to get an opportunity
to capture another state champi-
onship.
The team did not come close
to capturing a state title this year,
even as Travis Benjamin made a
respectable showing in all of his
events.
The senior placed fourth over-
all in both the long jump (22-
10.25) and the 100-meter dash
final (11.00 seconds).
Benjamin also anchored the
4X100'relay team to fourth place
overall at 41.62 seconds.
The 4x400 relay team, also
anchored by Benjamin, finished
eighth overall (3:24.00).
Interestingly, Benjamin per-
formed these events on an injured


right foot, which he sustained
during the April 18 regional track
meet at Miami-Belen Jesuit.
What had helped the senior,
according to McDonald, was that
he applied vinegar and clay on his
right foot, which proved to be a
healing element.
"Travis did a lot of preliminar-
ies and finals at the state meet,"
said McDonald.
"If he would've had more in-
dividual help in the other events,
then we could have done better.
Travis individually carried the
team."
Brunarious McKever, who fin-
ished fourth overall last year in
the 300-meter hurdles, finished
seventh this time around.
The senior clocked in at 40.45
seconds.
The 4X800 relay team had their
best time of the season (8:14.67),
but somehow they finished third
in their heat and 10th overall.
Rantavious Wooten finished
10th overall in the 200-meter race
(22.52 seconds).
The boys team finished 13th
overall with 18 points, well behind
Godby (Tallahassee), who won
the Class 2A boys track champi-
onship with 52.5 points.

Pahokee Blue Devils
results
Micanor Regis won the silver
medal as the Class 2A state run-
ner-up in the boys shot put (52-
10), while Ruth Ann Kinglocke
placed sixth in the girls 100-meter
finals (12.73).
The boys 4X400 relay team did
not place as they was disqualified
with one runner out of lane.
The girls 4x100 relay team
finished 12th overall (50.02 sec-


onds).
The boys team finished 26th
out of 50 teams with eight points
- all coming from Regis.
The girls team was tied for
44th out of 54 teams" wit threee"
points - all from Kinglocke.
Though the Blue Devils didn't F


send many competitors out for
the state meet, Emmanuel Hen-
dricks, the boys track coach, put
the whole season into perspec-
tive.
"This whole season was a big
learning experience for me," thll
fiyst-year head coach said.
"There were a lot of positives
such as building a young core of
runners to pass the torch to. I'm
proud of all my graduating se-
niors because they gave their all
and were very respectful.
"Next season, I'm looking for-
ward to seeing the young guys
improve on what they already
learned this year."

On April 5, after coming very
close to defeating Zarak Lawson
in the 2007 final, Kentavious Mar-
shall became the undefeated 2008
singles champion by edging Law-
son 6-2, 4-6, 7-6 (3). Congratula-
tions are due to both players for


fine efforts under difficult wind
conditions. Twelve players started,
playing multiple opponents who
ranged in age from 11 to 76.
A week later, under great
weather conditions at Glades
Central Community High School


courts, doubles players enjoyed
a fine morning of competition.
As last year, the seasoned team
of Sandy Weiser - Mark Klein-
field swept by Marshall-Lawson.
The 6-1, 6-2 final -was closer
than 2007's 8-1 pro set score, but


Marshall-Lawson seemed to ap-
preciate the lessons given by the
victors.
According to tournament di-
rector Ken Buchanan, turn out
was light but enjoyable for all 10
participants as well as spectators.

freeze on hiring for two open

relying on additional ambulance

Beach counties and is once again
stationing an ambulance in the

With 170 employees, the 17

School board
The Hendry County School
Board is also feeling the pinch.
One-year contract teachers are
not being renewed for the com-
ing school year. The move affects
some 28 teachers. A ten-year low
in state funding due to a decrease
in student population instigated
this cost-saving measure. The af-

According to Assistant Super-

school district continues to do all
it can to mitigate the effects of the
situation. He advised those teach-

ten the district experiences turn-
over in teachers through attrition

In addition, many other em-

als - are being let go because
grant monies are drying up.
Of the 28 teaches involved, 27

$59.2 million budget. He added
that cuts have already been made
in administration over the years
under Superintendent Tom Con-7
ner. Making cuts is very tricky, he
said, because "you don't want to
cut muscle and bone."
In several weeks the state's
budget should be available so
local districts will have a better
handle on just what funding will
be available.

The project came together so
well, according to Ketin McCa-
rthy, the city of Clewiston's util-
ity director, that a normally 10
percent contingency factor in the
end boiled down to just about I
percent of unaccounted for cost --
a surprising fact as construction,
equipment and other costs have
shot up elsewhere
Congressman Tim Mahony
was also present to participate in
the ribbon-cutting.
"This is what happens when
people roll up their sleeves and
work together." he said, standing
just outside the bay doors to the
treatment plant
The plant is a modern water
treatment plant driven by reverse
osmosis technology, which many
officials believe produces the
cleanest water available. It also
reduces, though it may not com-
pletely eliminate, the likelihood
of boil water notices since it no
longer draws its supply from Lake
Okeechobee, but from the Flori-
dan Aquifer.

ture in mind, and has the capacity

cent, if there is a need to do so.
Wendell Johnson, Clewiston
city manager, acknowledged the
city's decision not to join in a wa-
ter treatment plant that is still be-
ing built in Western Palm Beach
County; although he did admit


he "sweated a few times" when
the city had to offer its word that
taxpayers would have to foot any
remainder of costs.
Ultimately, that would not be
necessary.
"We wanted to keep the cost
to our users as low as possible,"


said Mr. Johnson. "This has been
the most successful project that
I've been involved in. It has come
together wonderfully and beauti-
