Wildfire burns at Lake Okeechobee


Smoke and fog carry
over into Clewiston,
Palm Beach County
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
LAKE OKEECHOBEE -- For-
estry officials continue, closely
supervising a fire -on Lake
Okeechobee that began burning
last week.
From the initial report last
Thursday regarding a 20-acre
wildfire, the fire has increased ex-
ponentially, to an approximately


4,000-acre blaze yesterday.
On Thursday, the first signs of
the fire could be seen from the
lake,' with a billowing column
of smoke rising up from .the di-
rection of the water. The smoke
churned quickly upward. and
seemed too far from the city to
cause major concern at that ear-
ly juncture.
The Division of Forestry mon-
itored the situation, hoping that
the fire would not spread past
the lake bed.
"All we can do is monitor it
and make sure it doesn't cross
the levees," said Danny Calla-


han, Glades County senior forest
ranger. "Last year we had a large
fire, 50,000-plus acres and it went
from the lakeside and burned
some parts of the levee."
According to him, local units
were ready if they received word
to send helicopters to control the
flames.
On Monday, the smoke cov-
ered the area thick in fog and
on Thursday night, a wind shift
seemed to intensify the fires. An
orange glow punctuated some
parts of the area.
From the location of Joe's Fish
Camp in Moore Haven, acres of


burned vegetation extended
deep into the lake.
Although the flames on that
site were mostly gone, the black
ground 'continued releasing
smoke into the air.
The 5.5-mile fire started as
two separate fires and eventually
combined, burning deep into
the lake.
The smoke eventually shifted
toward Palm Beach County and
areas like South Bay and Belle
Glade reported compromised
visibility.
. The anticipation was that the
wind would eventually carry the

"We may get orders from ou�
district area to try to finish burn,,
ing it out," said Mr. Callahan.
Officials with the Division of
Forestry pointed to the possibility
that the fire was. set on purpose;
According to Melissa Yunas%
%%ildfire m litigation specialist, the
dry conditions and the lake's low
water level combined to make
the site "receptive to burning."

Mecca

The Audubon's 11th an-
nual Great Backyard Bird Count
(GBBC) for 2008 was a great suc-
cess for Clewiston.
Clewiston. residents counted
143,748 birds, which ranked
Clewiston as the First city in
Florida and the Fifth city in the
'nation for the number of birds
counted.
Clewiston's success can
be contributed to the Hendry-
Glades Audubon and local resi-
dents who worked hard in our
community to make Clei-iston a
bird watching Mecca for 2008.
Water Management gener-
ously opened Storm Water Treat-
ment Area 5 (STA5) to Hendry
Glades Audubon tours during
the GBBC.
The tours were a great suc-
cess during the GBBC.
Birders from other areas trav-
eled far to see STA5's feathered
inhabitants, which included
hundreds of Roseate Spoonbills
and a Flamingo.
Birding interest at STA5 has
prompted Water Management
and'Hendry-Glades Audubon to
continue the tours.
STA5 isn't open to' the pub-
lic, so all bird tours are sched-
uled through the Hendry Glades
Audubon.
Please call their field repre-
sentative Margaret England at
1-863-674-0695 or email her at

if you are interested.
The different habitats in the
Clewiston area attract many bird
species.
There were 121 species

Cyber crime reported by local


Sugar Realty
allegedly victimized
by former employee
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - With the, on-
set of the Internet, a new set of
crimes came along where per-
petrators commit criminality
on the World Wide Web.
Realtor Luan Walker of Sug-
ar Realty believes she is a recent
victim of such an offender.
"He worked for me for
eight years," Walker states. "He
stopped working for me in June
of 2007."


According to a recent police
report, Glenn A. Smith, owner
of Lakeside Realty, was arrested
on March 27 on two counts of
felony fraud and an additional
charge of denying computer
services to an authorized user.
Walker informed authori-
ties that upon Smith's termi-
nation, she removed his name
and contact information from
the Website domain, replacing
it with hers, and deleted his e-
mail address and password ac-
cess.
After having trouble proper-
ly accessing the site nearly one
year later, Walker contacted her
domain registry and discovered
that another party had changed


the contact information.
Evidently, the suspect used
his previous status to gain ac-
cess to Walker's site and all of
her business information.
The contact changes took
place in their system showing
Glenn Smith as the contact for
SugarRealty.com;
He was thereby gained full
and unrestricted access to the
business Website.
"These crimes are very se-
rious," Walker says. "I never
would have found out."
Arresting authority Justin
Spence is the Internet crimes
detective in Clewiston.

age women of all ages to be pro-
active with their personal health
and schedule preventative exams

many diseases and other health
conditions can be detected early.
This focus on prevention can
be extended to other aspects of

economic security, and aging
can impact a woman's health.

little girl was transported to the
Gulf Coast Hospital in Fort Myers
for further examination.
After she was examined at the
Hospital, Investigator Brett Daley
was informed that, due to the na-

injuries were intentionally inflict-
ed. Investigators Daley and Keith

A Short Drive to a great Okeechobee Refuge


By Nancy Dale
Looking for a nearby retreat to
kick-back and enjoy nature? The
centerpiece at Arnold's Wildlife
Rehabilitation Center in Okeecho-
bee is a lush, half-acre butterfly
garden where visitors can stroll
through, a setting of more than
2,000 -native plants that provide
a habitat for hundreds of butter-
flies. Arnold's Butterfly Haven
is an extension of the wildlife
'conservation efforts of the Cen-
ter which devotes more than 10
acres to homeless and injured an-
imals. Visitors are welcomed into
an "ever-changing garden in mo-
'tion," as described by Sue Arnold,
,owner and trained rehabilitation
'specialist who treats rescued ani-
'mals delivered to her care by Fish
and Wildlife and individuals who
'find injured wildlife.
The garden replaces what was
,previously an orange grove de-
'stroyed during Hurricanes Fran-
,ces and Jeanne in 2004. Once
The wreckage of stumps and
overturned trees were bulldozed
,away, Arnold felt the best use of
othe land was as a haven for but-
terflies which suffer from dimin-
ishing habitat due to human en-
croachment.
"The butterfly garden grew
:out of my own search for peace
'when my daughter passed on a
'few years ago. I wanted to cre-
,ate a place of serenity not only for
)ne, but for others who visit the
-Rehabilitation Center. It became
Part of my own rehabilitation,"
-says Arnold. "The garden of more
than 60 species of free-roaming
'butterflies includes the habitat of


the rarely seen green and black
Malachite and the Cuban Cres-
cent." But, the life of these small
delightful creatures grace nature
for only a short time'. "Beginning
its first stage as a caterpillar that
hatches from an egg laid by a fe,-
male, it, devours the host plant.,
forms a chrysalis, and through
metamorphosis becomes a beau-
tiful butterfly. The process takes
only a few weeks, but they live
only about two weeks then the
cycle begins again," adds Arnold.
Hundreds of butterflies are at-
tracted to the garden's abundant
. larval (host) and flowering nectar
plants where they stop to unfurl
their proboscis (feeding tube) to
suck-up the sweet nectar. "The
Butterfly Haven .reflects a bal-
anced eco-system for the cold
blooded beauties that gravitate to
heat to lay their eggs, especially
during summer. Arnold says that
"on the hottest day of the year,
you can be sitting in the garden
with hundreds of butterflies clus-
tering around and on you." Many
of the garden's flowering plants
are donated by butterfly clubs
around the state as the Center
operates strictly on private dona-
tions. "We do not buy any of our
butterflies. With the plight of in-
creased urbanization, we provide
not only a refuge for butterflies
and animals but a place where
Mother Nature maintains a bal-
anced setting of bugs, wasps, and
birds in this circle of life," Arnold
emphasizes. The garden, shaped
like Florida's state Ibutterfly the
Zebra Longwing, has "a motion
that blends into the natural, open


setting," Arnold describes.
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-
tion Center and Butterfly Haven
not only attracts native species
but more than 10,000 people a
year who stroll along the maze of
walkways to view up-close and
personal, many animals on the
premises. There are the Florida
panthers (pumas) Arnold raised
as babies; the bobcats; Ringtail
lemurs, aptly named "Maddie"
and "Gascar," classified as an en-
dangered species from Madagas-
car; South American prehensile
tailed porcupines; Kinkajous from
South America; free-roaming
peacocks, chickens, egrets, and
visiting sandhill cranes. There is
Professor Opossum, popular with
children that travels with Arnold
to local schools giving students
the opportunity to observe and
feel the furry animal, introducing
him with an educational lecture.
Arnold also offers guided tours
at the Center for visiting school
groups, speaks to many local or-
ganizations, and at fundraisers.
Sue Arnold has treated thou-
sands .of animals, nursed them
back to health through bottle
feedings with tender loving
care, set broken wings and legs,
mended injuries from automobile
accidents, and helped wildlife re-
cover from desertion or neglect.
She trained under a licensed re-
habilitation specialist and has a
degree in medical technology.
She opened the center some 12
years ago and is assisted totally
by volunteers. Eleven-year-old,
Maggie Bucina and Sue's intern
Angela Waldron, prepare pre-


scribed food for each animal. Lo-
cal veterinarians Drs. Jim Letcher
and Jim Harvey of Okeechobee
provide emergency services and
visits as well as Dr. Lee Corbridge
of Sebring. The Center is licensed
by Florida Fish and Wildlife and
the USDA. The Center, open 7
days a week, lends an opportuni-
ty for visitors to watch a release of
some of the rehabilitated animals
back into the wild, such as the six
Bard Owls that recently reclaimed
their natural territory lifting into
the wind on wings of freedom.
Arnold's Wildlife Rehabilita-
tion Center and Butterfly Haven is
located at 14895 N. 30th Terrace,
Okeechobee, Florida. Hours: 7
days 1.0-4 p.m. Adult admission:

Researcher: Gas


prices climb,. employee



productivity plummets


TALLAHASSEE-Rising gas
prices are affecting more than the
family budget. More pain at the
pump results in more employee
stress on the job, says Wayne
Hochwarter, the Jim Moran Pro-
fessor of Management at Florida
State University's College of Busi-
ness.
"People concerned with the
effects of gas prices were signifi-
cantly less attentive on the job,
less excited about going to work,
less passionate and conscien-
tiousness and more tense," Mr.
Hochwarter said. "These people
also reported more 'blues' on the
job. Employees were simply un-
able to detach themselves from
the stress caused by escalating
gas prices as they walked through
the doors at work."
Mr. Hochwarter gleaned the
information by surveying more
than 800 full-time employees this
spring when gas prices hovered at
about $3.50 per gallon. All of the
people surveyed work in a wide
range of occupations, primarily
in the southeastern United States.
All drove personal transportation
to work and had an average com-
mute of 15 miles each way.
Survey respondents saMf gas
prices were foremost on their
mind, including a disgruntled fac-
tory worker who wrote, "I spend
more time at work trying to fig-
ure out what I need to give up to.
keep gas in my tank than thinking


about how to do my job."
Mr. Hochwarter's research
will be submitted for publication
later this summer. Among his
findings: 52 percent have recon-
sidered taking vacations or other
recreational activities; 45 percent
have had to cut back on debt-re-
duction payments, such as credit
card payments; nearly 30 percent
considered the consequences of
going without basics including
food, clothing and medicine; 45
percent report that the escalating
gas prices have "caused them to
fall behind financially"; 39 per-
cent agreed with the statement
"Gas prices have decreased my
standard of living"; and about 33
percent -- or one in three -- said
they would quit their job for a
comparable one nearer to home.
Mr. Hochwarter's discussions
with employees confirm the
study's results. Many employees
report that gas prices rank as the
No. 1 water-cooler discussion
topic, ahead of family, sports or
work, he said. He found little dif-
ference in responses among dif-
ferent ages, gender, work tenure
and occupations.
"Several employees said they
simply could not escape the me-
dia onslaught of bad news re-
garding the future of gas prices,
and many reported their financial
futures were looking bleaker and
bleaker," Mr. Hochwarter said.

Tips to prevent mosquito-borne illness


How to keep the
pesky bugs away
from biting you

TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) em-
phasizes the importance of pro-
tection against mosquito-borne
diseases.
Throughout the year, DOH
works with partner agencies, in-,
cluding the Florida Department
of Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices, the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission,
mosquito control agencies and
state universities, to monitor for
the presence of illnesses carried
by mosquitoes. .
"As we approach the summer
months, Floridawill experience an
increase in its mosquito popula-
tions," Division of Environmental
Health Director Lisa Conti, D.V.M.,
M.P.H., Dipl. ACVPM, said.
"Taking a few simple steps can
drastically reduce the chances of
contracting a mosquito-borne -ill-
ness."
Symptoms of West Nile vi-
rus (WNV) infection, St. Louis
Encephalitis (SLE), and Eastern
Equine Encephalitis (EEE) may
include headache, fever, fatigue,
dizziness, weakness and confu-
sion.
Physicians should contact a
local county health department
if they suspect an individual may
have a mosquito-borne illness.
DOH laboratories provide test-


ing services for physicians treat-
ing patients with clinical signs of
mosquito-borne diseases.

DOH advises Floridians to pro-
tect themselves from mosquito
bites by following the "5 D's":
*Drainage -Rid the area
around your home of standing
water, which is where. mosqui-
toes can lay their eggs.
*.DEET - Repellents contain-
ing DEET (N,N-diethyl-meta-tolu-
amide, or N,N-diethyl-3-methyl-
benzamide) are recommended
to protect against mosquito ex-
posure.
Picaridin ahid oil of lemon eu-
calyptus are other repellent op-
tions.
* Dress - Wear clothing that
covers most of your skin.
*Dusk and Dawn - Avoid be-
ing outdoors when mosquitoes
are most active.

Tips on Repellent Use:
*Always read label directions
carefully for the approved us-
age before applying a repellent.
Some repellents are not suitable
for children.
* Products with concentrations
of up to 30 percent DEET are gen-
erally recommended. Other po-
tential mosquito repellents, as re-
ported by the Centers for Disease
Control and Prevention (CDC), in
April 2005, contain picaridin or oil
of lemon eucalyptus.
These products are gener-
ally available at local pharmacies.


Look for active ingredients on the
product label.
*Apply insect repellent to ex-
posed skin or onto clothing, but
not under clothing.
*In protecting children, read
label instructions to be sure the
repellent is age-appropriate.
According to the CDC, mos-
quito repellents containing oil
of lemon eucalyptus should not
be used on children under age
three. DEET is not recommended
on children younger than two
months old.
*Infants should be kept in-
doors or mosquito netting should
be used over carriers when mos-
quitoes are present. ,
*Avoid applying repellents to
children's hands. Adults should
apply repellent first to their own
hands, and then transfer it to the
child's skin and clothing.
*If additional protection is
necessay, apply a permethrin
repellent directly to clothing. Al-
ways follow the manufacturer's
directions.

Tips on eliminating mosquito
breeding sites
Elimination of breeding sites is
one of the keys to prevention.
*Clean out leaves, troughs and
gutters.
*Remove or drain old tires
used in playgrounds:
*Turn over or remove empty
plastic pots.
*Pick up all beverage contain-
ers and cups.


*Check tarps on boats or.,
other equipment that may collect
water.
*Pump out bilges on boats' .
*Replace water in birdbaths"
and pet feeding dishes at least',
once a week.
*Change water in plant trays,.
including hanging plants, at least"
once a week.
*Remove vegetation or ob-
structions in drainage ditches that
prevent water flow.

Monitoring wild bird deaths^
can help officials track the spread.'
of some mosquito-borne diseas-
es.
Anyone who discovers a dead
bird is encouraged to report it via
the Internet.
The bird mortality reporting-o
system is located on the Florida .
Fish and Wildlife Conservation,
Commission's website at: www.
MyFWC.corn/bird/.
Citizens may also report dead
birds to a county health depart-
ment or local FWC office.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health, of all people
in Florida.
For more information on mos-
quito borne illnesses, visit the
DOH website at www.myflori--
daEH.com, the CDC Web site at-,
www.cdc.gov or a local county
health department.

Celebrating all of our fish and puppy dog tales


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Fishermen have been known
to exaggerate, but I just' returned
from a fishing trip to the Bahamas
where the fish we caught was big-
ger than I would have said it was
had it gotten away. We landed a
66 pound Dolphin (Mahi Mahi).
Can you say church fish fry from
one fish?
That made the trip for some of
us, but one of the blessings of the
trip for my wife was sitting on the
porch, taking in the fresh air, read-
ing, and spoiling Abby and Kallie,
two Bahamian canine friends we
have made over the years during
our spring trips to Hope Town.
Before Kathy packed her bags for
the trip, she packed doggy treats
for "the girls".
While in the Bahamas, we
have the girls. At home'we have
Pepper. Pepper is my four legged
child who waits expectantly for
me to get home each night and
excitedly greats me with whines
of delight and great tail wagging
when I walk through the door.
You can imagine how excited she
was when I came home after be-
ing gone a week! Words aren't

mas.


adequate to describe the recep-
tion I received.
What is it about dogs that
evokes such an enthusiastic out-
reach? Whatever it is, we know
that dogs demonstrate loyalty and
obedience, and offer comfort and
a sense of well-being. They love
us regardless.
Could you imagine what
it would be like if we were to
have the kind of outreach in our
churches, homes, schools and
communities that most dogs
have? Let me suggest ten ways


we can be more Godly in our lives
by being more "dogly".
*Greet loved ones with wag-
ging tail. The wagging tail affirms
that we are home. This is where
we belong, where we live, where
we're safe, and where we're
loved.
*Eat with gusto and enthusi-
asm. Dogs know that eating is a
celebration of life. When people
break bread together, animosi-
ties are dissipated, barriers are
broken down, and friendships are
renewed and strengthened. Eat


with gusto. Enjoy all the flavors
and spices of creation.
*On hot days, drink lots of wa-
ter and lie under a shady tree. Re-
lax, slow down and enjoy. Unplug
and give yourself a time out.
*Run, romp and play daily.
Physical exercise is as important
for the soul as it is for the body.
When we learn how to play and
stretch and get in some exercise
we'll feel better from the inside
out.
*Like dogs, be loyal to a-fault.
Loyalty speaks to oir relationship
with others - our spouses, our vo-
cation, our community, and our
.family and friends.
*When you're happy, dance
around and wag your tail. Thank-
fulness and celebration are pow-
erful dynamics for successful and
healthy living, and are gifts we
give ourselves.
*If someone is having a bad
day, sit close by and nuzzle gen-
tly. We all have bad days. We all
need encouragement and affir-
mation. When we are depressed,
we know that it takes only a quiet
word, a gentle touch to bring us
around. Words are not always
needed. A gentle nuzzle speaks
volumes.


* No matter how harshlyyou're
scolded, be willing to run back
and make friends. Don't keep a
scorecard of rights and wrongs.
Carrying grudges is a heavy bur-
den. Forgive and forget.
*Avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. We do not need to
injure others by what we say or
do. We can be strong with love;
firm with kindness.


casionally running with the pack
builds and affirms friendship.
Friends are important in our life.
A friend is someone who knows
the song in our heart and can sing
it back to us when we have for-
gotten the words.
Closing thought: The reason
dogs have so many friends is b�-
cause they wag their tails and not


*Bark with vour buddies. Oc- their tongues.

Construction of hospital in the Glades is on track


WEST PALM BEACH-As the
Health Care District of Palm
Beach County marks the fourth
anniversary of taking ownership
,of Glades General Hospital, the
plans envisioning construction of
a new regional hospital are now
unfolding in dramatic fashion. The
foundations are in place and the
steel superstructure has begun to
rise at the site of the new regional
'hospital being.built to serve the
,Palm Beach County communi-
ties bordering Lake Okeechobee.
Construction of the Health Care
District's 70-bed hospital and
'medical campus, located at the
Southwest corner of U.S. 441 and
, State Road 80, is right on track.
"It's an impressive sight to see
the steel rising from the ground,"
said Dwight D. Chenette, Chief Ex-
ecutive Officer for the Health Care
District. "The Health Care District
has been steadfast towards a new
progressive facility and I am proud
of the progress to date."
The new regional hospital is
scheduled to open in early 2010
'and will replace Glades General
Hospital, the county's only pub-
lic hospital. While many positive
changes continue at Glades Gen-
,eral Hospital, the community is
looking forward to a new facility
with advanced capabilities.
On April 25, David Zechman
,announced his resignation as
Blades General Hospital's Chief
Executive Officer. His decision
%vas based on an opportunity
to join a larger hospital in West
Plains, Missouri. Mr. Zechman's
Past day at Glades General Hospi-
wal was May 2.
The Glades General Hospi-
tal Board has named the Dis-
1rict's Chief Medical Officer, Ron
,Wiewora, M.D., as the hospital's
acting Chief Executive Officer. Dr.
'4Viewora previously served as
the hospital's Chief Executive Of-
'ficer one year ago. Dr. Wiewora is
highly regarded by the physicians
,'and hospital staff for his hospital
",experience and steady leadership,
which was exemplified during his
*service at Glades General Hos-
,pital in the height of Hurricane
AVilma.
^ "Glades General is fortunate
Ao have Dr. Wiewora back at the
.helm working with the hospital's
highly experienced, capable and
resilient leadership team," said
Bryan Cross, Chair of the Glades
General Hospital Board. "I am
always impressed by our employ-

The construction of the new regional hospital in Belle Glade is moving along as planned..If
everything goes well, the hospital should open in early 2010.


ees' unwavering commitment to
the health of this community and
I know they are looking forward
to transitioning to the new region-
al hospital."
Glades General Hospital enjoys
strong physician relationships, in-
valuable community support and
the dedication of the many vet-
eran employees who have pro-
vided a high quality of care to the
community for several decades.
To support its goals to provide
quality care, over the past year
several significant improvements
have been made in the hospital's
technology, administration and
care delivery. The 73-bed JCAHO-
accredited hospital has developed
a physician manpower plan, re-
cruited a new general surgeon
and implemented a new Emer-
gency Room physician group.


The hospital has also been
moving toward a completely pa-
perless environment. Glades Gen-
eral was the first hospital in Palm
Beach County to offer bedside
Electronic Birth Registry (EBR)
and is the lead hospital develop-
ing the statewide Allcare system,
a shared data computer registry
program that will enable physi-
cians to access patients' medical
documentation from any hospital
within the network.
"It is important that the qual-
ity care our patients receive from
our dedicated and talented health
care professionals be enhanced
by modern technology," said Dr.
Effie C. Grear, Health Care District
Board Member and Glades Gen-
eral Hospital Board Member.
Once completed, the centrally-
located new regional hospital will


deliver an even greater techno-
logically advanced level of care.
The hospital will have 70 single
occupancy inpatient rooms with
additional family-friendly con-
sultation rooms. The Emergency
Room will have 16 treatment ar-
eas, three fast-track exam areas
and six private ICU rooms. A he-
lipad will allow for rapid transport
by the District's Trauma Hawk
emergency helicopters.
In addition, the campus will
offer ample parking facilities, a
Palm Tran bus stop, and space
for future facilities, such as medi-
cal office buildings. The project
is being led by the Health Care
District's Senior Development
Executive, Michael J. Gates, who
continues to ensure that the proj-
ect stays on time and on budget.
"The Health Care District is


committed to seeing that the new
regional hospital project is com-
pleted in a timely basis," said Dr.
Stanley Pierce, Chair of the Health
Care District of Palm Beach Coun-
ty Board of Commissioners. "In
less than two years, we will have
the modern medical campus that
we need to deliver quality health-
care to this region."
The Health Care District Board
has committed $50 million toward
the $73 million dollar regional
hospital project. The Glades
Healthcare Foundation, a not-for-
profit organization formed in 2006
to support health care initiatives
in western Palm Beach County, is
leading a fundraising campaign to
complete the project.
On April 9, the Board of Direc-
tors of Palm Healthcare Founda-
tion approved a $1 million grant to
the Glades Healthcare Foundation
to support the capital campaign.
The significant grant will be used
to support the capital costs for
the Palm Healthcare Center for
Better Nutrition, a modern facility
within the new regional hospital
that will provide high-nutritional-
value meals to aid patients in their
recovery.
The center , will also serve
as a community destination for
healthy eating and nutritional
education-a critical need in the
Glades region where the popu-
lation experiences high rates of
diabetes and cardiopulmonary
disorders.
"This generous gift under-
scores the importance of this new
hospital project and the need for
'other .community organizations,
businesses and individuals to join
us in this worthwhile effort," said
David Goodlett, Glades Health-
care Foundation Board Chair
and Health Care District Board
Member. "With continued com-
munity support, we can expand
the delivery of quality health care

Observations


- When things seem bad


Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I am not a great student of
history. There are some things
I've observed, some things I've
lived through and I remember the
words of one historian, George
Santayana, who has stated that
"Those who do not learn the les-
sons of history are doomed to re-
peat them." I have observed that
things can run in cycles and from
what I know, many of the things
that happen to people have hap-
pened before.
Today, there is a lot of impor-
tant news. Everyone checks daily
on gasoline prices, now there is a
limit in the number of bags of rice
that you can purchase in some
stores and the word "rationing"
is used. We use the word "ration-
ing" more readily when it comes


to water usage; the "water restric-
tions" in place seem to have no
immediate end in sight and will
likely continue for some time to
come.
We've already heard about
global warming and the melting
of the ice caps, energy resources
are being stretched with countries
that are expanding their wealth
buying fuels and raw materials,
and then there are people losing
homes and jobs being cut back
with more people out of work.
The news is not good. Through
third hand sources, someone
shared that many young persons
are worried about the re-insti-
tution of the military draft, and
I haven't heard about any really
spectacular success in our war
fronts. The message seems to be
"it takes time" and there appears
to be a lot of frustration and ques-
tioning about what is a "reason-


able amount of time."
I remember some of the short-
ages in the 1970's. In those days, I
ran my convertible in ethanol-gas
mixtures; it was a little cheaper
than gasoline and the car did al-
right on it. Sometimes, gas sta-
tions would only sell you so many
gallons and I spent time going
from station to station to fill the
tank. I have many earlier memo-
ries; being just born before World
War II; I remember my mother
standing in line in the food store
and giving ration coupons to
"Tom" the butcher, and my great
uncle putting candy in his coffee
to sweeten it.
I remember gas ration stickers
on the windshields of cars that de-
termined the amount you could
buy. There were air raid drills and
blackouts when you had to turn
out all of the lights in your house
so that cities could not be visible


during bombing raids. We didn't
have any bombs dropped on
our cities but the possibility was
always present and we were re-
minded of it by hearing the sirens
and having air raid wardens walk
through neighborhoods to tell
you "get that light out!"
With all that was going on, the
nation was well aware of what
there was to pray for, and praying
was something that people did.
Faith was an integral part of life
and churches were full.
People gathered and called
upon God. He heard them. The
war came to an end, and the
prosperity of the 1950's and 60's
that followed was unprecedent-
ed. The foundation of this coun-
try were laid down during similar
periods of hardship, persecution,
people willing to leave the com-
forts of home and come to the
new world where things were


more primitive and dangerous.
Their churches were filled;
they had much to pray about and
did. The story of the Exodus is a
story about hardships and losses
of freedom, and people who call
upon God. God heard them; God
himself calls Moses and tells him
"I have indeed seen the misery of
my people in Egypt. I have heard
them crying out...(Exodus 3:7)."
Then God promises to rescue
those who call upon Him. When
times get bad, salvation and
change come when people call
upon God. The religious fervor
that appears during hard times is
something I've seen in my own
life and in what I've read in our
history through the ages. Is God
somehow punishing us? No, I
don't believe that. Is God some-
how mad at us? I believe He may
more pity us for what seems to
be happening rather than being


mad. What I do believe, though,
is that out of bad things can come
good. One of the good things
that has come out of past bad
times has been a restoration of
faith and a new understanding
of our need for God. I've seen it
and read about it before. I believe
that it is likely to happen again.
In the meantime, I hope we find
faith, restore a sense of values in
society, respect the place of reli-
gion in people's lives and find the
fervor for faith equal to the fervor
of many of those who would take
our lifestyle away.
We will see what happens. If
there is a prophetic element in
what I have learned and observed,
though, it has opened to me this
course that can really make a dif-
ference. God will hear our pleas.
He will answer our prayers.


Be it humble, or exalted, may I fill it with a will


By Jackie Miller
There used to be a song in our
hymnals that said:
There's a place for every work-
er, in the vineyard of the Lord;
Where with all our powers
united, we may toil with one ac-
cord;
There are needy hearts now
waiting, for' the help which we
can give;
Let us urge them faithfully on-
ward, let us show them how to
live.
There's a place, oh may I find
it, where my mission I can fill,
Be it humble, or exalted, may I
fill it with a will.
Help to serve, my generation,
with a heart of truth and grace;
Help me, Lord, from this time
onward, find and occupy my


place.
There is no one on earth just
like you. Sometimes people feel
that they have nothing to offer to
thier world.
They wish that they could sing,
preach, paint a beautiful picture,
or write an inspirational message.
Because they can't contribute in
a certain way, they bemoan their
lack of that particular ability and
think of themselves as small and
insignificant.
You need not render beautiful
music, preach a sermon, translate
lovely ideas into paint on canvas
in order to make a contribution to
your world.
Each person has special tal-
ents, and your work is to develop
and express the abilities God has
given you.


If everyone could sing, or if ev-
eryone could write, there would
be no special joy in the expres-
sion of the individual.
But each one has some special
talent; each has a unique ability
that is his own.
And that is good! All of the
varied talents combine to form
the kaleidoscope that makes for
interesting living.
But you may say, "I can't do
anything important!"
Yes you can!
Each one can do something
that fills a certain place in the
overall pattern of good.
But as long as you deny your
ability to accomplish, as long as
you concentrate on your inability
to do a particular thing, you will
fail to accomplish that which will


bring a sense of fulfillment in your
life.
What do you like to do? Fre-
quently the things you like to do
are the things you do best, and
they may. be a more important
contribution to your world than
your realize.
The one who loves to work
with flowers, or repair appliances,
or do handwork of various kinds,
can (and does) contribute to the
good to others.
A very special talent is the abil-
ity to remain bright and cheerful
under all conditions. The one
who always has a cheery smile
and a friendly greeting is welcome
everywhere.
A good listener, too, fills a
definite need. If you have talent
for extending the hand of under-


standing to others and helping
them find thier own answers, by
all means use this ability and give
thanks for it. Yours is an impor-
tant gift!
Perhaps your contribution
is in the realm of your work or
your daily activity. You may have
thought it unimportant. Take an-
other look.
You don't have to be a minis-
ter or a humanitarian to make the
world a better place. You can do
it by cheerfully helping someone
make the right purchase for his
needs.
You can do it by lending a help-
ing hand to a fellow worker who
runs into difficulty.
You can certainly make the
world better by teaching either
children or adults, even though


the material may seem stereo-
typed or routine.
There is not such thing as a
dead end. Nothing is useless or
unimportant, when you put into
it your desire to contribute some-
thing of beauty, or something of
good, to your world.
Don't concentrate on the
things you can't do. Instead, de-
velop the good qualities .that you
do have, unfold the ideas you can
express best, and then make your
world a better place to live.
The potential is within you.
You should read Romans 12 and
I Corinthians 12. I Corinthins 12:7
says "But to each one is given the
manifestation of the Spirit for the
common good."

Notice for Early Public Review of a Proposal to Support Activity in
the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To: All Interested Agencies, Groups, and Individuals
This is to give notice that Hendry County has submitted an application for a Commu-
nity Development Block Grant (CDBG) funds under the Disaster Recovery Initiative
T,,'Tf ,T 'ijITiTI, ,.,r, IN ,,. 6 l0 h ', ij , . m i] .TO lll [d ,' rr,, I.I ': Fi I, ,,,, O -i, ,l
i' uE.'l.". .

Construction of approximately 10,000 square foot building that will be utilized as
an Emergency Operations Center (EOC) for Hendry County and infrastructure to
support the EOC acility. Proposed infrastructure improvements include roadway,
water and sewer facilities. The EOC site is located approximately 5 miles west of
the City of LaBelle at 3888 Congen Road in unincorporated Hendry County.
This notice is required by Section 2(a)(4) of Executive Order 11988 fo r Floodplain
Management, and by Section 2(b) of Executive Order 11990 for the Protection of
Wetlands, and is implemented by HUD Regulations found at 24 CFR 55.20(b) for
the HUD action that Is within and/or affects a floodplain or wetland.
Construction will be undertaken in the 100 year floodplain and/or wetlands. Hendry
County is interested in alternatives and public perceptions of possible adverse im-
pacts that could result from the project as well as potential mitigation measures.
t is planned that the construction of the EOC facility and the roadway Improve-
ments and water and sewer improvements will occur within the floodplain area.
The project will be located on a 10 acre parcel, approximately 5 miles west of the
City of LaBelle, at 3888 Congen Road. The subject site is currently vacant, unde-
veloped agricultural land. The County intends to construct a 10,000 square foot
EOC facility and the infrastructure required to support the facility (i.e., roadway,
water and sewer improvements). The County does not currently have a separate
Emergency Operations Center facility and this has been deemed as an "urgent
need" by the Hendry County Board of County Commissioners.
This notice with a request for comment was mailed to the Regional Office of the
Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Florida Department of Environmen-
tal Protection, and U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. Additional information may be
obtained by contacting: Ron Zimmedy, Hendry County Grants and Special Pro-
jects Director at 863-675-5264.
Written comments must be received by Hendry County at Post Office Box 2340, La-
Belle, Florida 33975-2340 on or before May 28, 2008. Please direct all com-
ments to Mr. Zimmery's attention.

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 raise funds 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.

Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation Bed Races


When was the last time you
saw someone drink a cup of wa-
ter (hands-behind-back) chew
gum, and blow a bubble, hula
hoop-three times, and race a
team of four in a flippers, while
pushing someone on a bed?
If you attended this year's
Sugar Festival and watched the
Foundation Hospital Bed Races,
I'm sure you were thoroughly en-
tertained!
There were eight participat-
ing tearps in the Hospital Bed

ety, Sunrise Restaurant, First Bank
of Clewiston, Hendry Regional's
Emergency Room, along with
another HRMC team, Students
against Drunk Drivers (S.A.D.D.)


and two Clewiston High School
Softball teams.
To make the festivities even
more amusing, the teams were
judged for their overall costumes,
which ranged from animal attire
(Sunrise Restaurant) to softball
uniforms (Clewiston High School
softball team.)
The First Bank Bandits were
voted as having the best overall
costumes, with their bank robber
gear and "stolen money" scat-
tered on their bed. The fastest
team of this year's Bed Race was
Hendry Regional Medical Center,
reaching the finish line in a mere
56 seconds.
The HRMC Foundation raised
a total of $400 as a result of the


Bed Races. The Foundation board

Moore Haven Terriers track reflects on season


McCloude wins gold,
Lewis is a triple
medalist

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN - The Moore
Haven Terriers track program has
been a model of success for many
years, especially this one.
For the first time in eight years,
Moore Haven has produced a
state champion as Antwonne Mc-
Cloud won the gold medal in the
high jump at 6-4 in the Class 1A
state track championships, held
at Showalter Field in Winter Park
on April 25. The previous state
champion in track for the Terriers
was .imaine Perry - he won the
gold ,edal in [the Ing jump at
21.6 bck in 201(
"Antfiwone steadily improved
as trh season prlressed," said
Steve Petti, the 17-year head
coach "He was ery coachable
and was considered a hard s:ork.
er.'He- led the learn by example
Even though Antwonne won
the high jump, he didn't put that
above his teammates."
The senior high jumper was
also the high jump' champion
in Moore Haven's district track
meet, held at St. John Neumann
School in Naples and in their re-
gional meet, held at the Commu-
nity School of Naples.
McCloud posted a high jump
of 6-6 at the regional meet, while
his best performance of the sea-
son was when he recorded a
jump of 6-8 at the LaBelle Invita-
tional. He was named the MVP of
that meet.
Perhaps the most important
athlete of the entire program,
however, was Venisha Lewis. The
senior, a three-time state medalist
this year, finished third overall in
,he 100 meter dash (12.85 sec-
onds) and sixth overall in the 200
meter dash (26.66 seconds).
Lewis finished third in the 100
meter dash two years in a row
and it's the first time she placed in
he 200 meter dash finals.

The Moore Haven Terriers track program has completed one of the most successful sea-
sons in recent memory. Pictured: Antwonne McCloud, Amparo Aguilar, Elazarus Blackmon,
Keivon Bell, Xavier Fagan, triple medalist Venisha Lewis, KaNeidra McPherson, Joshua Pat-
terson and Tiara Perkins. Also in the picture are assistant coaches, in alphabetical order:
Lesie Hare, Nathan Koetje, Wayne Reese and Norman Spero. Overall, according to Steve
Petti, the head coach, the team earned seven state medals.


achievement that Lewis has made
is that she made five straight Class
1A state championship appear-
ances - all the way back to when
she was in the eighth grade. Lew-
is qualified for the 100 meter dash
in all five years, while making ap-
pearances in the 200 meter dash
and the 4X100 relay team three
and four years, respectively.
The girls 4X100 team, an-
chored by Lewis, finished fifth
overall at the state meet (51.62
seconds).
The girls track Most Valuable
Player (MVP) for the past four
years, Lewis notched another
MVP honor after winning the
100 and 200 meter races at the
LaBelle Invitational - Lewis' 100
meter time was recorded at 12.06
seconds, her personal best.
Lewis also was the top overall
girls runner in the 100 and -200
meter races at both the district
and regional meets this year.

Catch him if you can
On May 1, the first day of spring football practice, Pahokee
Blue Devils wide receiver De Joshua Johnson makes a
nice catch as he tries to elude defensive back Carlos Lam-
mons in a passing drill.


"Venisha probably has had
more first place finishes in the
regular season than anyone I've
ever coached," Petti said. "She's
not a vocal person, but she's an-
other one who leads by example.
Venisha's always strived to over-
achieve in whatever she does. It's
a pleasure to coach a student-
athlete like that because she's
self-motivated and it carries over
to the rest of the team."
Petti has led Moore Haven to
16 consecutive state track cham-
pionship appearances, as Ela-
zarus Blackmon (long jump, 100
meters), Keivon Bell (200, 400
meters), Xavier Fagan (400 me-
ters) and Joshua Patterson (100
meters) also qualified for the
Class 1A state meet.
Though the Terriers girls track
team finished 17th overall (13
points) and the boys team fip-
ished tied for 20th overall (10
points), the program should not


be disappointed as the archrival
Glades Day Gators program didn't
send any girls to the state meet.
The Glades Day boys team placed
32nd overall (seven points) as
freshman Joshua Thornton
placed fourth overall irr the 400-
meter final (50.60) and the 4X100
team (Tony Walker, Jarrett Swaby,
Amir Pollock and Earnest Jack-
son) finished seventh overall at
44.25 seconds.
Port St. Joe won overall for the
girls (79 points) and Westminster
Academy won overall for the boys
(63 points).
"We have a team concept
that comes first, then we strive
for our kids to achieve individual
personal records throughout the
season," Petti said.
Overall, Petti could not have
been much more proud of how
his team performed throughout
the season. He credits the success
to a camaraderie that was formed.


INI/Naji Tobias

Run. run, run
The Glades Central Raiders show everyone why they are
considered the best conditioned team in the state. Run-
ning a series of 'gassers' towards the conclusion of the
Raiders' first spring football practice, held on May 1, is an.
example of that.

said. "It was definitely as team efl
fort, scoring-wise. From day one,
we had very good attendance and
dedication from the team. With
their hard work and commitment:
it definitely paid off for us." .

A very special 'Thank You' to the community


On Wednesday, March 26,
while returning home from a
school field trip, Renee Damms
and her two year old son Kaden
were involved in a serious vehicle
accident with a dump truck.
Thanks to the quick reaction
of two other mothers on that
field trip, Kaden was immedi-
ately removed from the vehicle


and escaped with minor cuts and
bruises.
Renee, however had to. be
extricated from the vehicle and
flown to the nearest trauma cen-
ter, where she will remain for sev-
eral more weeks.
Her injuries were very serious,
but she is stable.
She has had 6 operations and


will need several more before be-
ing released.
She and her family would like
to 'thank everyone in the com-
munity that has donated blood
during the blood drive and for all
your support and prayers.
A special account has been set
up for her at Sea Coast National
Bank.


If you would like to make a do-
nation there.
If you would like to visit with
her or send gifts she is at St.
Mary's Hospital in West Palm
Beach, Fla.
Sincerely,
Adrian and Renee Damms

Help build the pathway to modern health care.
The 1-IRMC Foundation is still selling commemorative bricks.
With Moth'er's Day right around the corner on Sunday, May 11,
and Father's Day following shortly thereafter, on Sunday, June 15,
purchasing a brick is the perfect way to honor your parents. Other
family members and friends can also be remembered in a lasting
and tangible way through the brick campaign.
In 2008, Hendry Regional Medical Center will break ground on
a new Emergency Room, Laboratory and Surgery Suite, to be lo-
cated south of the existing hospital and connected by an enclosed
corridor. All proceeds of the brick sale will go towards the con-
struction costs. Your brick memorial will play a prominent role in
the beauty and character of the project. Join the Foundation in
"Building a Pathway to Modern Healthcare - One Brick at a Time."
Your contribution will provide a visible and meaningful way to
honor friends and loved ones.
*A 4" x 8". brick inscription is.3 engraved lines.
*A 8" x 8" brick inscription is 6 engraved lines.
Join the many others in the community who have purchased a
brick. You may contact Glenda Wilson at 863-983-2735 or visit the
HRMC Foundation house at 544 West Sugarland Highway, Clewis-
ton, to receive an enrollment form.
