Memorial Day in Clewiston


Gas prices don't
stop some locals
from traveling

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - It's that time
of year again.
Ninety-degree weather.
Swimsuit commercials. And an
entire aisle in the supermarket
dedicated to barbecuing.
Summertime is coming.


And what more fitting holiday
to commence the season than
Memorial Day?
It is after all a day of remem-
brance for those who have died
serving our nation; the nation in
which we are paying upwards of
$4 for a gallon of gas.
Aside from a three-day week-
end and free beer from the
neighbors' house, Memorial Day
is celebrated for fonder reasons.
"My brother willingly served
10 years in the military and I
celebrated all the phone calls


I received during his two tours
in Iraq," says Lakeirra DeShaun
Booth, a local schoolteacher.
"I can't lie, I enjoy the informal
happenings as well but I never
forget what this day means."
Those 'who have lost family
and friends to battle would ap-
preciate what the Veterans of
Foreign Wars, or VFW, does to
commemorate the fallen.
An associate of the VFW says
there will be a ceremony on
Monday morning beginning at
11 a.m. on the grounds of the


Ridgelawn Cemetery.
There will be a speech given
and taps will be played.
Others around town have
more appetizing ways of show-
ing their respects.
. For those unenthused about
firing up the grill, Sonny's is pro-
moting its all you can eat baby
back ribs special this Monday.
For others who may be more
starved for an instrumental heal-
ing this holiday, the Tiki Bar &
Grill is presenting the Lime Rock
Band on Friday and Saturday.


Deadly wreck: Lake wildfire obscures driving
... . .. .


INI/Ashley Smith
A black Ford Ranger became pinned between two semis in an early-morning wreck just outside of Clewiston.


A boot was the only remaining article of a man critically injured in Clewiston's car wreck.


'Despite outrageous peaks in
gas prices, and the official be-
ginning of summer nearly three
weeks away, some residents say!
they refuse to spend Memorial!
Day outside of the beach.
Key West, Miami and Singer,
Island were among the most
popular beaches to be visited by
summer holiday traditionalists.
"We go to Key West every
year," one Moore Haven resident
boasted. "This year though, we
just won't be taking the truck."

Smoke from nearby
fires may have
caused the wreck
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Four separate
accidents involving at least 11
vehicles halted traffic just outside
the Clewiston city limits early Fri-
day morning.
The pile up left at least 11
people injured, according to
Sgt. Dwayne W Cooper with the
Florida Highway Patrol. Many
more are reported to have suf-
fered minor injuries.
One man was fatally injured
when his truck became pinned
between two semis. The frame
of the vehicle was barely rec-
ognizable moments after the
wreck, while .rescue workers ex-
tricated the man.
Reports claim the man died in
the accident, but his identity has
not yet been released.
Thick smoke from nearby
wildfires on Lake Okeechobee
may have been the cause of the
accidents, with victims report-
ing poor driving conditions. Just
before the accident, the smoke
limited visibility to just a few feet,
drivers said.
"All the smoke from the fire
and the sun coming up," caused
the wreck, said Robert Connell,
whose vehicle sustained less se-
vere damages. "It happened real
quick, we were all cruising at
about 50 miles an hour."

A positive venue for Montura's kids


Work is aimed at
attracting children,
keeping them safe
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - For the mem-
bers of Montura's governing
board, keeping local children
active and engaged throughout
the summer months is impera-
tive.
With Montura's location re-
mote from larger attractions,
providing approximately 800
children with activities is a pri-
ority for the board.
With very few other recre-


national outlets in the area, the
board is hoping that many of its
younger constituents will take
advantage of a newly remod-
eled and renovated clubhouse
and will resist other less posi-
tive outlets.
There are still more plans
in place to continue upgrading
the clubhouse, available for use
by all Montura and Flaghole
residents.
Administrators and board
members are looking forward
to plans to reconstruct a multi-
sport field for baseball, football
and soccer, and are generally
putting the finishing touches
on a variety of areas so that
children will want to utilize the


facility.
Last week, board member
Jesse Necelettos Jr. gave a tour
of the facility.
The board, he said, has shift-
ed into a more progressive way
of thinking and, where small
charges were fixed to the use of
pool tables and other items, the
board has decided to eliminate
the fees.
There is no charge associ-
ated with anything, except for
perhaps the food and drinks in
the vending machines, he said.
It is more important now,
in the face of a recession and
with soaring gas prices, that the

Polygamy? Is there a problem? newSZap.COm


By Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D,
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The State of Texas recently has
been involved in breaking up a
polygamous sect and has received
a great deal of news attention.
It has caused news contro-
versy and outcries among some
of the "victims" as a result of the
large number of displacements of
the helpless, the children, in the
process.
Should people be left to go
their own way in a "modern"
world? Our Church has been in-
volved in missionary activities in
a part of the world with customs
and outlooks different than our
own, including polygamy.
When encountered, the thrust
was to point it out as something
to be remedied; something "un-
clui.kli,,L'i" The newly formed
Ctu c uii.r: touintered that the West
has iS **"ov'gam\ too. They re-
ply that in their part of the world,
a man has four wives at one time'
in the West a man has one wife at
four dilileren iiies
The argument is that they
have "horizontal polygamy" and
we have "vertical polygamy," so
what's the big deal? Their point
is a compelling one from their
perspective, speaking to the con-


edition where we find ourselves
in Western society today. What,
then, is wrong with polygamy?
Certainly, it was an Old Testament
practice and many of the real he-
roes and Biblical patriarchs prac-
ticed it.
Why the problem? I saw the
answer a few weeks back when
I attended my fiftieth high school
reunion. Claude and Annette
came, having gone steady. all
through high school and marry-'
ing shortly after graduation. They
appeared with a certain youthful
look, a certain calm, a certain
peace it seemed, and holding
hands as they talked to their old
classmates. They .obviously had
something that many are missing
in the societies of today. The Bible
has prohibitions about relations
outside of marriage and the Ten
Commandments specifically con-
demn adultery (Exodus 20:14),
and Proverbs (chapter 7) cautions
again loose relationships. Why?
I think the .answer is in the
way we are made. God has cre-
ated us in such a way that we
cannot know many others in
this lifetime at any depth or with
any significance without a total
and long-term commitment and
relationship with that other. It is
impossible to know many people
with great intimacy or with a ful-


filling level of involvement with-
out a great investment of time,
concentration and commitment
of self to that relationship.
The root meaning of "adul-
tery" is to "water down" (do you
remember hearing about "adul-
terated milk" or milk that has
been watered down?).
We seemingly have a choice
between several lesser relation-
ships in this life, or a limited num-
ber (perhaps only one) relation-
ship that is in depth and fulfilling.
Polygamy, even without regard
to human jealousy or favoritism,
means the sharing of intimacy
and the limited possibility of in-
depth fulfillment that comes in
traditional relationships with one
love. It will mean that as more are
added to an "extended family,"
the time, the amount of intimacy,
the sharing, the working toward
shared goals, the building of
bonds with loved ones and ones
own children will all be dimin-
ished.
Relationships will become
more functional, each partner will
be valued for the role they fill and
not for their being as a person.
No matter how "comfortable,"
no matter how well provided-
for; Shared love in this sense is
not complete love. We condemn
slavery (it was in the Bible too!)


because it does not treat persons
as persons, but values them only
for the role they fulfill.
Their being is watered down,
they are seen as less than the per-
son God intends, or intended for
them to be. When "marriages"
treat persons as less than whole,
complete persons, and reduces
them to receiving partial fulfill-
ment of their place in a family, as
someone to have a part of a life
but not all of it, this too is a kind of
slavery. Polygamy denies partners
from whole, fulfilling, in-depth
relations, it treats persons like ob-
jects. This is the "watering down"
of personhood, treating another
human being as less than whole,
less than the creation that bears
the image of the Creator. That is
wrong.
That deserves our best efforts
to educate, to help, to assure, to
protect, to correct where it is abu-
sive. In the meantime, we need to
love, protect, and hold sacred the
great gift of personhood, made
whole, complete, and sanctified
in our homes, and marriages.
The Lord chose to share an
earthly home when He came
to live among us; Two parents,
siblings, security and great love.
Need we look further?


How to know what God expects of you


Jackie Miller
Ralph Waldo Emerson asked:
"Why should we not have a first-
hand and immediate experience
of God?"
Of course in every age, some
persons do have spiritual experi-
ences that give them a sense of
closeness with God, a feeling of
really having made contact with
Deity. But more people go through
life, perhaps holding some sort of
'faith in a higher Being, without
any real sense of really knowing
,God as a living Presense.
At First Christian we are just
completing a video study, "Vi-
sualized Bible Study Series", in
which the truth is revealed that
there have been Three Ages of
Time. First the "Patriarchal Age"
or "Father Rule Age" in which
God spake directly with the heads'
of families and gave His law This
age began with Adam and contin-
ued through Genesis to the book
of Exodus, 'chapter 20. The Bible


says "God.spake in times past to
our Fathers" (Hebrews 1:1). The
Second Age was the "Mosaic
Age" which began with Moses
receiving the law on Mt. Sinai
and the nation of Israel came un-
der covenant with God. This age
continued all the way through the
Old Testament and the first four
books of the New Testament, the
Gospels. The Bible says "The law
came by Moses but grace and
truth came through Jesus Christ"
(John 1:17). It also says that Jesus
was born under the law (Gala-
tians 4:4). The Third Age is the
"Christian Age" that began after
the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
The Great Commission was given
at the beginning of this age, "Go
into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every creature, he that
believeth and is baptized shall be
saved, he that believeth not shall
be damned. (Mark 16:15-16). This
commission is also found in Mat-
thew 28:18-20 and Luke.�4:46-47.


This Great Commission began to
be carried out on the first Pente-
cost after the resurrection and as-
cention of Jesus. The Gospel was
preached for the first time as a
fact in Acts 2 and when the hear-
ers asked what they should do,
the one who had the keys of the
Kingdom, Simon Peter said, "Re-
pent and be baptized everyone of
you in the name of Jesus Christ
for the remission of sins and ye
shall receive the gift of the Holy
Spirit." With this the "Chistian
Age" and "The Christian Church"
was launched. Those who gladly
received Peter's word were bap-
tized the same day and they con-
tinued steadfastly in the Apostle's
Doctrine, Fellowship, Breaking of
Bread and Prayer (Acts 2:41-42).
Unless one understands the
Three Ages he cannot "rightly
divide the word of truth" (2 Tim.
2:15). Romans 10:17 says "Faith
cometh by hearing and hearing
by The Word of God."


How can one go past the bar-
riers that seem to separate you
from the Infinite One? First, you
must have faith in God and the
Gospel (Heb. 11:6, Mark 16:15-
16). Second, because you do be-
lieve the Gospel (Christ died for
our sins, was buried and arose
from the dead the third day. I Cor.
15:1-4), you choose to Repent of
sins (Acts 17:30-31). Third, you
are willing to confess your faith
in Christ (Acts 8:37; Romans 10:9-
10). Fourth, you will submit to be
immersed in water in the name of
the Father, the Son, and the Holy
Spirit (Matthew 28:18-20), for the
remission of sins and to receive
the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38), and
thus you have obeyed the Gospel
(Romans 6:1-5, 16-18).
Yes, you can have a "born
again" experience just as Jesus
said in John 3:5 "Except a man
be born of water and the Spirit he
cannot enter into the kingdom of
God."

Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The Civil War ended in 1865.
But it wasn't until 1997 that the
last shot of that war was fired. In
1997, two young boys were play-
ing around with their new metal
detector when they came across
a live shell that dated back to the
Civil War. The police were came
and explode the shell, in many
ways making it the last shell fired
from the Civil War.
It's pretty amazing that years
after the end of a war, its weapons
could .still be alive and capable of
destruction.
Yet that seems to be'the nature
of war: its effects linger on in the
lives of people and nations for
many generations. Most of us can
recall the World War II photo of
five Marines raising an American
flag on the island of Iwo Jima.
The man in the center of the
photo was John Bradley. Al-
though Bradley won the Navy
Cross for saving a fellow soldier's
life, he preferred not to talk about
the war and refused to accept any
hero worship that others tried to
force on him.
One of the few comments
Bradley ever made about the war,
he made to his young son in re-


sponse to a remark about hero-
ism. Bradley replied, "The real
heroes of Iwo Jima are the guys
who didn't come back."
This weekend, we honor
those men and women who
didn't come back. The ones who,
in President Abraham Lincoln's
words in the Gettysburg Address,
"gave the last, full measure of de-
votion."
When we reflect on the honor
and heroism of our soldiers, we
are confronted with the sacri-
fices they made, as well as our
response to those sacrifices. The
whole concept of anyone making
sacrifices for us, much less dying
for us, sometimes makes us un-
easy. Confronting their heroism
forces us to stop and examine our
own lives.
Why did they do what they
did? What cause is worth dying
for? Would we be willing to do
the same?
Celebrities are people who
make news, heroes are people
who make history. The qualities
of heroism are eternal -- self-sacri-
fice, courage, honor, duty.
A man who served in the
Navy during World War II shared
that one night he was running
his transport across the Atlantic


when he noticed the white trail
of a torpedo coming toward him.
His ship was filled with hundreds
of soldiers, and the potential loss
of life would have been devastat-
ing.
Nearby, a smaller ship had
also seen the torpedo coming.
The captain of the smaller vessel
maneuvered his ship between the
transport and the torpedo. The
explosion destroyed his ship, kill-
ing all those on board.
The man who told this story
ended it by saying, "The skipper
of that other ship was my best
friend."
Slowly, he remarked, "You
know, there is a verse in the Bible
which has special meaning for
me now. It is this: "Greater love
has no one than this, that a man
lay down his life for his friends."
What kind of love would give
itself up for another? What kind
of love would be willing to die for
you and me?
It is the love that Jesus dem-
onstrated to show us how much
we mean to God. It is the love we
celebrate today in the example of
those soldiers who gave their lives
for our freedom.
In India there is a cemetery
where the bodies of American


soldiers are buried. Over the en- and Is committed to

Letters to the Editor


We would like to take this op-
portunity to give a very apprecia-
tive Thank you to all who helped
us with the recent Child's Wish
*in Clewiston. We could have not
have reached our goal of helping
these children and there families
if it was not for all of the help
we received. From the donations
from local business like Wal-Mart
who let me sell hot dogs to raise
money and helped with the food
puiichase, and Watermill Ex-
press, Popeye's, The Royal Com-
pany, Clewiston Elks and Beef
,O Brady's,Subway, who's dona-
tions provided rooms for the chil-
dren and the meals, we provided.
To all the anglers who donated
there time to take the children
out, and a special Thank you to,
Karson Turner who we just met
at the Sugar Festival and was so


eager to help take a child fishing
and ended up taking Kevin Sum-
mers who is a local young man
we were fortunate to find at the
last minute after a family had to
cancel. I know God played a role
in us finding out about Kevin in
time to let him enjoy a day with
Karson fishing. Also we can not
give enough Thanks to Roland
Martins Marina who helped in
providing the rooms for the chil-
dren and there families, provided
the banquet room to hold all the
meals and to Ramon for going the
extra mile and helping- any way
he could to make sure this event
was a success. My neighbors JoA
and Maryann Payne who from the
moment we told them about the
event they helped every step of
the way even when it was a chal-
lenge to pull everything together.


Sam Griffin who himself found us
three other anglers and helped in
so many ways. To Walt and Mary-
ann Reynolds who helped with
everything including the photo-
graphs of the event. And a special
Thank you to
Mayor Mali Chamness, who
from the moment I ask her to
be part of this event was eager
to help and provided gifts for the
children including books from the
Clewiston Library.
Scott and Susan Martin who
helped, in so many ways includ-
ing the beautiful Cake with the

so many that helped in so many
ways that we can not name them.
all here, but we are so grateful in
our hearts because of them these
children and their families got to
.get away from the hospitals and


test and worries at home and for
some of them was the first family
vacation theyever had because of
there child's illness. It was a time
for them to relax and enjoy the
weekend and just be happy as a
family together. We were blessed
to help United Special Sports-
men's Alliance with this Child's
Wish event and we are planning
on doing this again.
If you know of a child who has
a critical illness or disability please

Remember Shakespeare: What fools these mortals be


"What fools these mortals be,"
wrote Shakespeare.
Have you ever met a fool? Have
you ever been a fool? Both have
proven to be a thorny encounter.
How foolish we are when
God is not center of our lives and
when men exalt themselves in-
stead of God.
This was illustrated recently
when a couple in central Penn-


sylvania named their newborn
daughter, "Atheist Evolution." Her
father said that the name was
their reaction to the popularity of
biblical names.
He said, "There's so many
people named Christian or Chris-
tina.
This is just one person named
Atheist. What the heck's the dif-
ference?" (Cited in The Pastor's


Weekly Briefing, Volume 2, Num-
ber 38). '
The psalmist David describes
the foolishness of sin: The fool
says in his heart, "There is no
God."
They are corrupt, their deeds
are vile; there is no one who does
good.
The Lord looks down from
heaven on the sons of men to see


Lykes Bros. announces scholarship


Lykes Bros. Inc., announces
the recipient of the second an-
nual Lykes valedictorian scholar-
ship. Moore Haven High School
senior Jessica Concha will receive
her scholarship during the gradu-
ation ceremony on May 30 at the
high school.
Awarded in cooperation with
the Moore Haven High School
Scholarship Foundation, the
scholarship is a four-year, $3,000
per year grant awarded annually
to the Moore Haven High School


Patio barbeque


valedictorian.
This year's valedictorian and
scholarship recipient, Jessica
Concha, is a model student, and
a model citizen. Currently, the
president of the local Future Busi-
ness Leadeis of America chapter,
president of Beta Club, captain of
the academic team, and a mem-
ber of the National Honor Society,
Jessica also spends Saturdays as
a CCD volunteer at her church.
She plans to attend the University
of Florida in the fall to study com-


puter engineering.
"This scholarship was cre-
ated to acknowledge the chosen
student's outstanding efforts to
strive above and beyond the nor-
mal expectations and standards,"
said Mark Morton, vice president
of Lykes. "Jessica exceeds all the
hopes we have for future genera-
tions. We are proud to make this
scholarship available to her and
we applaud her many achieve-
ments thus far."


if here are any' who understand
any who seek God.
All have turned aside, they
have together become corrupt,
there is no one who does good,
not even one.
Will evildoers never learn -
those who devour my people as
men eat bread and who do not
call on the Lord?


There they are, overwhelmed
with dread, for God is present in
the company of the righteous.
(Psalm 14:1-5)
The Bible uses the term fool to
refer to a person who is morally
and spiritually deficient.
The point is when we are out
of fellowship with God-going our
own way, making our own choic-


es, legislating our own morality,
and fashioning our own gods we
become utterly foolish in all we
do.
In the midst of our foolishness,
God speaks a word of hope to us:
"Be still and know that I am God"
(Psalm 46:10). Let us worship
Him, trust Him, and obey Him for
He alone is God.

Biofuels: Local family at round level
local farmers.
Trying to keep the family in the
family farm is getting tougher be-
cause of rising costs and regula-
tions. For instance, Bryan 11 said,
the cost of fertilizer has doubled
in the past year because the US is
/shipping its ingredients overseas.
Corporate procedures have the
Effect of keeping locally-grown
produce out of the hometown
groceries. For instance, when lo-
cal farmers are harvesting water-
3. I melons, local stores feature mel-
ons from Central America. They
won't buy locally because their
corporate offices already have
" - their supplies set up. Local farm-
ers are shipping their melons to
' Canada.
Still the Beers are trying to stay
optimistic. If the jatropha experi-
ment works out, it could mean an
important success for the family
business.
The Beer family isn't just look-
ing to the future, they're laying
the groundwork now - hopefully
for a better life for themselves and
Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant the rest of us. As Bryan senior
Bryan II, Bryan and Brent Beer are working hard to make a success of their new jatropha put it, "If you shoot at the moon
planting. The family has two fields planted in the tropical nut that they hope will be a viable enough times, you're bound to
fuel alternative, hit a star."


Jatropha nut

Everyone is affected by rising
oil costs - and in ways that may
not be obvious.
In recent years the push to
come up with appropriate alter-
natives to petroleum oil has be-
come a surge.
Unfortunately, many of the
biofuels that have been touted as
alternatives have been based on
food sources.
For instance, ethanol made
from corn was to make a big dif-
ference in this country's depen-
dence on oil.
A quick check of the prices of
grain products shows what hap-
pens when large amounts of food
are diverted to other uses.
Food prices have gone up as
supplies have gone down. Clear-
ly, there needs to be another solu-
tion.
Another plant, called the jatro-
pha curcas, is coming into focus
in the hunt for a cheap, sustain-
able source of fuel.
In Hendry County, the Beer
family has already incorporated
20 acres of jatropha into their cit-
rus and vegetable operation.
Bryan Beer and his sons,
Bryan II and Brent, are taking
the initiative - hoping they're on
the ground floor of a real biofuel
break-through.
Even so, the Beers are the first
to admit they're just feeling their
way through this new territory.
"We're looking to diversify,"
said Bryan.
He said he saw an advertise-
ment for the plant about a year
ago and decided to look into it.
With some tractors using as
much as 120 gallons of diesel per
day, the reasons'are obvious.
At this time, jatropha oil can
be added to diesel in a 20-80 mix.
If the Beers' experiment works
well, it will mean a 20 percent
savings on'their fuel bill.
They're hoping that in time the
process will be improved for even
better savings.
This tropical plant has been
used in places like Mexico, Cen-
tral America and India for some
time.
Jatropha seeds contain about
31-37 percent oil, which can be
used as an additive to diesel fuel.
The seeds, although toxic, also
have some medicinal purposes
and the "cake," or portion of the


seed left over after the oil is ex-
tracted, is high in nitrogen fixing
compounds and can be used as
organic fertilizer, according to ja-
tropha supplier My Dream Fuel,
LLC.
Extension Agent for Hendry
County Gene McAvoy said this ja-
tropha is new to him, too. He is
aware of the Beers' experimenta-
tion with it and is taking a wait-
and-see attitude about just how
important the plant will be as a
biofuel source.
He said it is an "industrial"
plant that requires permitting,
especially for the disposal of by-
products. The plant is somewhat
toxic, so it cannot be used to feed
cattle like, orange rind or some
other by-products.
"I'd like to see a little more
evidence, more information," Mr.
McAvoy said, "A lot of ideas come
and go." He cites the craze to raise
emus and llamas in recent years.
The Lee County Extension Of-
fice is also experimenting with ja-
tropha. Recently, Lt. Gov. Jeff Kot-
tcamp attended the ceremonial
planting of about' 100 seedlings
in Lee County, Many others were
planted on a one-acre demonstra-
tion farm at Orange River Park in
the Buckingham. "0
Jatropha is an industrial prod&
uct that, to become a real factor
In the fuel industry, would require
a large amount of acreage as
well as an infrastructure to sup-
port production and distribution.
That's a large piece of the picture
that just isn't there yet. The overall
costs are 'also unknown as yet, he
added.
Mr. McAvoy feels there may be
"something there" with the jatro-
pha plant, but gaining accurate
information and taking it to the
final stages is a process that must
be taken a step at a time.
The plant has attracted the at-
tention of some very heavy hitters.
Archer Daniels Midland Company
(ADM), Bayer CropScience AG
and Daimler AG are interested in
the potential of the jatropha. Ac-
cording to the Bayer CropScience
Web site, in addition to its pos-
sible fuel advantages, jatropha
also has a positive carbon dioxide
balance, which can contribute to -
protecting the climate.
On the downside, the jatropha
plant and seeds are toxic and re-
quire careful handling. Harvest-
ing is labor intensive because the
nuts ripen at different times and
have to be picked by hand. Ex-
perts say it will take years of re-
search before the plant could be
a viable fuel source.
The State of Florida is also


investigating biofuel production
and the Florida Biofuels Associa-
tion'is a partnership between ag-
riculture and waste management
to explore market opportunities
for biofuels derived from waste
products.
Meanwhile, the Beer family
is betting that jatropha will be a
part of the future fuel market. The
family has roots in Hendry Coun-
ty agriculture that go back to 1965
when Bryan's father, Victor Beer,
got started in the citrus business.
At one time, the family owned
6,300 acres, all in citrus. Now they
have sold off some property and
have about 1,500 acres in both
citrus and vegetables.
Farming is a way of life. Farm-
ers, they say, are the best stew-
ards of the land, providing habitat
for wild animals and taking care
of the water supply.
Brent mainly handles the
family's leveling and land devel-
opment division while Bryan II
handles the groves and farms.
Dad has graduated to mostly pro-
viding guidance, he said.
Bryan II has more or less taken
the lead in jatropha production.
He has learned a lot but admits
there are a lot of unknowns. The
plant will grow in poor soil, but
he said they're experimenting
with the best way to cultivate it.
They have planted some from
seed purchased from My Dream
Fuel, a company owned by a
Washington, D.C. attorney named
Paul Dalton.
At this point they're treating
the crop like groves, using the
same fertilizers and weeding the
jatropha fields as they would for
citrus and it seems to be thriving.
However, the plant is not "main-
tenance free," they point out. The
plants are hardy, but do not like
the cold.
They put their plants in the
ground last October, starting
them from seed about two years
.ago. They're not sure, but expect
a first crop in about 2009 or 2010.
Although everything is very "iffy"
right now, they believe the yield
should be about 1,000 gallons of
oil per acre. As they learn more
about the plant and the process,
they hope to increase that yield.
Inside the nuts are pods with
the precious oil. At this time, the
nuts must be picked by hand but
eventually the Beers expect a me-
chanical harvester of some type
will be available.
The family is .looking at buy-
ing its own press so they can have
the entire operation on-site. They
think they can serve both their
own diesel needs as well as other

Getting tough and physical
The Glades Day Gators had a very solid spring football
practice recently in preparation for their spring football
game at home against American Heritage-Plantation,
which is tomorrow night. One highlight of the action came
from a lineman drill overseen by defensive coordinator and
lineman coach Eric Pitts, who was teaching Chris Franco,
Josh Cuthbert and Tyler LeCroy, all linemen, a 'trap' play
that's designed for the linemen to squeeze and close the
hole from the opposition.

Preparing for Naples
The Clewiston Tigers football team ran a set of 'gassers' recently as a conditioning drill, which will help them be prepared
for their spring football game against the Naples Golden Eagles, who are the defending Class 3A state champions. A mes-
sage to all Clewiston Tigers football fans: The Tigers will play their spring game on May 24 at 7 p.m. in Naples.


Hendry County Speedway Race Report


Hendry County Speedway
hosted a ladies night out on Sat-
urday evening.
Wives, daughters and friends
were given the chance to test
their skills on the race track.
One of the stand outs was
number 32 Katie Campbell. She
drove very well and added that
she would be joining the Mini
Stock class in the future.
Another driver who earned the
respect of the fans was April Mos-
ley. No surprise that she can drive
she is the daughter of track veter-
an Sabrina Mosley of Pahokee.
I think after this event we may
see her in her own car in the fu-
ture. Dorothy Jackson also re-
ceived honors for driving Adam
Powell's car flawless through the
run.
Limited Late Model action is
always a blast. Split heat races
saw number 44 Tim Powers of
Okeechobee draw the number 1
pill and run away with the heat
race.
In the 2nd heat there was a
lot more action. number 96 Bob
Steinmetz of Naples and number
15 Bob Ragula of Dania got to-
gether on the back stretch send-
ing Steinmetz right into the path
of number 35 Calvin Fillingame of
Labelle. Fillingame's car flew into
the air and then slammed the wall
ending his evening.
Steinmetz would replace a
front tire during the clean up and
race back to 3rd in the heat won
by number 61 Thomas Scott of
Okeechobee.
Tim Powers continued his
win streak on his birthday. Eas-
ily drove away from the field on
every restart to capture the check-.
ered flag.
Thomas Scott had run 2nd
most of the race but ended the
night with a DNF. Steinmetz who
had been running 3rd was sent to
the back for losing the nose of his
car and causing a caution.
On the restart Steinmetz was
up against the wall trying to put
the pass on number 3 Joe Henke
when Henke shot up the track to
miss a spinning number 17 David
Morr.
Steinmetz and Henke bounced


off each other and the wall all the
way down the straight into turn
one where they collected Morr in
the pile up.
Greg Morrison number 12 was
able to escape all harm and finish
2nd. Tommy Hill number 88 of
Clewiston was given credit for the
3rd spot after being spun out on
the final lap.
Street Stock Division is always
gredt racing. Bobby Vaughn of Le-
high Acres won heat number 1.
Bob Cook of Palm City drove to
victory in heat number 2.
When the 13 car field took to
the track for the feature, number
29 Jesse Brown was at the rear of
the pack.
In just one lap with some good
use of the top side of the track
he was in 6th position. Nothing
could stop him from getting to the
front in a big hurry. Jesse Brown
of Clewiston got the win from the
last starting spot.
Jerry Ferrell number 98 of
Okeechobee had a spin early in
the-race was able to drive back
to 2nd. Tommy Hill number 1 H of
Clewiston grabbed the 3rd posi-
tion.
Steve Mosley number 1 of Pa-
hokee grabbed the win in heat
1 of the Pure Stocks. Then it
was number 9 Brian Morgan of
Okeechobee in the 2nd heat.
Morgan who has had his share
of bad luck over the last couple
of weeks was able to stay out in
front and lead the whole feature.
Steve Mosley put on a good run
but had to settle for 2nd.
Johnny Mosley number 68 of
Belle Glade grabbed himself a top
three spot.
Bomber Division hit the track
with 9 cars. J.R. Fitch of Vero
Beach took the heat and feature
wins.
After the race the driver of the
big Chevy Caprice said work is
under way for a Street Stock ride
in his near future, Camaro style
my favorite.
Vincent Taylor number 48 of
Port St. Lucie had a 5th place fin-
ish in the heat but was able to
score the 2nd spot in the feature.
Melissa Agent number 007 of La-
belle drove to the 3rd position.

Mini Mods showed a stronger
8 car turnout. Glenn Bidwell of
Loxahatchee took the win in the
caution free heat race.
The feature was "follow the
leader" with the leader being
number 10 Wayne Hildebrand
of Okeechobee. He got into the
groove and on to victory. S.C.
Klinger number 28 of Pembroke
Pines was trying all he could do to
catch Hildebrand but had to settle
for 2nd.
Ron Dubeau number 11 of
Royal Palm Beach grabbed the
3rd position.
Mini Stocks were shown the
way through the heat race by
number 00 Christian Augsperger
of Palm Beach Gardens who is
only 13 years of age.
The feature event was led
mostly by number 32 Eddie
Campbell of Stuart. All drivers
nose to tail most of the race. On
the last lap last corner Augsperger
got into the back corner of Camp-
bell and brought him around.
The flagmen wanted to rerun
the last lap but all the cars had
already left the track so scoring
went back to the last completed
lap.
The win was awarded to
Campbell. Augsperger would still
get 2nd. Devlin DelleChiaie num-
ber 3d of Jensen Beach would get
3rd.

Hendry County School Board met to discuss finances


Representatives with the Hen-
dry County School Board, and the
two collective bargaining units
representing teachers -- Hendry
County Education Association
and the Hendry Educational Sup-
port Personnel Association -- met
Thursday, May 8, to discuss the
School Board's financial situation.
The School Board's representa-
tives and Chief Negotiators, As-
sistant Superintendent, Scott Coo-
per along with Director of Human
Resources, Steve Stinnett outlined
the District's financial difficulties.


These problems are a direct result
of the recent downturn in both
the national and state economy.
The projected 2008-2009 bud-
get or "first calculation" is esti-
mated at three million dollars
less than the first calculation for
this school year. This provides
the District substantially less op-
erating capital for next year. The
present student enrollment is at a
ten year low. Last week's student
enrollment was 512 less students
than our ten-year high. The be-
ginning "Fund Balance" for this


year's budget was 2.8 million dol-
lars, and represented percent of
our revenue. The same projected
Fund Balance for next year is only
0.4 million dollars and represents
less than 1 percent of or projected
revenue for next year.
This year the District has expe-
rienced three waves of cutbacks
totaling over 1.6 million dol-
lars. All parties agree there are
troubling variables that may still
negatively impact the next year's
budget. These variables include:
future State cutbacks, additional


student enrollment shortfalls,
unforeseen increases in health
insurance, energy and fuel costs
and potentially lower property
valuations for 2009.
Both employee associations
and the School Board represen-
tatives recognize the seriousness
of the situation. Everyone realizes
that the District must work under
a balanced budget and continue
to protect and preserve class size.
Every school and department has
been asked to make operational
or programmatic cuts for next


year, but over 80 percent of the
District's expenditures represent
employee salaries and benefits.
It's impossible to trim the budget
without impacting employees.
All of the participants are aware
of the difficult decisions and sac-
rifices that must be made in the
next few months. There was a
genuine feeling of "We're in this
together", and all parties were
committed to work as a team,
and to cause as little long term
damage to employees as pos-
sible. The primary concern was


to protect the classroom and our
students.
Together, all parties are look-
ing at several options. The deci-
sions will be made collaborative-
ly, and shared with those who are
impacted first. More information
will be available for parents and
community as it becomes avail-
able.

CHS Principals all wet
Clewiston High School students met a recent reading challenge from their principal and
as a result they were able to pay a quarter to throw wet sponges at him on Wednesday,
May 14. Dr. Robert Egley seemed to enjoy students throwing wet sponges at him and
Assistant Principal Janice Lee during lunch. High school students are busy with sports,
clubs and jobs and many fall away from the habit of reading for pleasure they had in the
earlier grades. The challenge was meant to encourage independent reading and introduce
them to the wide selection of interesting books available. Three hundred seventy five stu-
dents participated in the challenge by reading 875 books.

On Saturday, May 10, three
members of the Clewiston Middle
School CROP (College Reach Our
Program) were invited to attend
the CROP Leadership Retreat at
Florida Gulf Coast University.
The CMS student's and their
CROP Advisor Danielle Jean, trav-
eled to FGCU in the morning,
together with five members of
the LaBelle Middle School CROP
group (and their Advisor Connie
Carter).
The CMS and LMS attendees
had been selected by the mem-
bers of their respective groups,
and were asked to dress in busi-
ness attire. They were joined at
FGCU by 40+ middle and high
school student's from. 13 other
middle and high schools from
Lee and Collier Counties.
The FGCU Office of Outreach
Programs developed a wonderful
day for the student's, beginning
with the theme "Entrepreneurs
in Training". The day focused
on professional and business
etiquette and was designed to


benefit the student's not only per-
sonally, but also professionally
and scholastically. Prior to arrival
student's had been given a map
of the FGCU campus; the group
arrived at FGCU at 9:30 a.m., and
navigated their way to Reed Hall
for check-in.
After registration and the offi-
cial Welcome, males and females
broke into. different groups for
programs offered by the FGCU
Out Reach Staff. Males focused
on "Young Men and the Dream"
while the young ladies had a
"Women in the Workforce" ses-
sion.
When the groups gathered to-
gether again the session was "Eti-
quette and Protocol", offered by
consultant VirginiaEdwards. The
student's absorbed a great deal of
information from all these morn-
ing sessions.
At about 12:30 p.m., everyone
regrouped in the FGCU Student
Union Ballroom for a wonderful
luncheon. While they enjoyed the
food, student's were also treated

Farm Bureau members march on Capitol


WASHINGTON , D.C.-More
than 80 Florida Farm Bureau (FFB)
members on May 13 marched up
Capitol Hill and laid their farm la-
bor woes at Congress' steps.
Carrying a sign that said,
"Don't Tie Our Hands," and with
hands bound with green yarn to
symbolize how current immigra-
tion law and temporary worker
programs hinder agricultural
production, the Florida farmers
said comprehensive immigration
reform is the only real solution to
their labor problems.
Comprehensive reform usual-
ly refers to legislation that creates
legal avenues for people to enter
the United States , enables those
who are already here to earn legal
status and improves security at
the U.S. borders. For agriculture,
it also includes an improved agri-
cultural guest worker program.


Congress has not acted on im-
migration reform in more than
two decades, and reform is long
overdue, the FFB members said.
They called for Congress to pass
comprehensive reform this year.
After the demonstration, they
fanned out for meetings with
members of Congress on immi-
gration and other issues. Farm
Bureau members had made ap-
pointments to meet with Florida
members of Congress or their
staff liaisons as part of the group's
annual "Field to the Hill" visit.
"We are here in the nation's
capital to say that Congress must
take action or, else our hands as
the nation's food producers are
tied," said John L. Hoblick, FFB
president. "If farmers doh't have
a system for hiring the labor we
need, when we need it, at a fair
market wage for the type of work

Area of the Florida Folk Festival
on Saturday, May 24 and Sunday,
May 25, in White Springs.
The Folklife Area is organized
and implemented by the Florida
Folklife Program, Florida Divi-
sion of Historical Resources,
Department of State, in Tallahas-
see . Folklorists from the Florida
Folklife Program conduct annual
surveys to identify and document
folklife.
With the assistance of a grant
from the National Endowment for
the Arts, staff have documented
cattle ranching traditions through-
out Florida over the past year.
Cattle ranching began in Flor-
ida when Ponce de Leon, Pedro
Menendez de Aviles, and other
Spaniards introduced Andalusian
criolla cattle in the 16th century.


Today more than one million
cattle graze on five million acres
of Florida pasture and woodland.
For years, Florida was the leading
beef producing state east of the
Mississippi River and today re-
mains in the top five.
On Saturday and Sunday, May
24 and 25, in the Folklife Area,
dozens of tradition bearers from
the statewide cattle ranching
community will present a rich
and diverse array of occupational
arts, foodways, verbal arts, and
music.
Festival goers will see Cracker
cows and horses descended from
the 16th livestock introduced by
the Spanish, as well as feisty Flor-
ida cow-dogs.
Cowboy. artisans will demon-
strate spur making, saddle mak-
ing, whip making, and a variety of
leather creations.
Cowboy poets will delight and
amuse their audience with home-
spun--and often hilarious-verse
drawn from experience working
on the swampy range.


that these workers do, then we
may lose fruit and vegetable pro-
duction in Florida and the U.S. "
Many of Florida 's most prof-
itable crops include fresh fruits,
vegetables, flowers and nursery
products, products that need to
be hand harvested. But finding
U.S. workers who are willing to
do the work is harder than ever,
and many farmers turn to work-
ers from across the border to
meet their labor needs.
That has presented several
problems, from not being able to
verify the workers' legal immigra-
tion status, to not getting tempo-
rary workers when they are need-
ed, to federal wage requirements
that are out of whack with typical
agricultural wages.

Federation says billions of dollars
worth of U.S. agricultural produc-

;Ranching
Toes will be tapping to the
country and western and Colom-
bian vallenato bands.
Chad Mills will prepare swamp
cabbage using his adaptation of
the recipe learned from his father,
Buddy Mills, in Okeechobee.
Folklorists will host narrative
stages where veteran cowmen
and women will recall adventures
on the swampy range.
Seminole cowboy Paul Bow-'
ers will present the history of
Seminole cattle ranching, the sys-
tem of earmarks and brands used
by the Seminole Tribe, and the
cattle drive that he organizes as a
public celebration of their ranch-
ing heritage.
Cuban American cowboy Jos6
Carlos Martinez will demonstrate
roping, and invite the public to
participate in roping contests.
The Florida Folk Festival takes
place on May 23-25 at the Stephen
Foster Folk Culture Center State
Park in historic White Springs.
The Festival is sponsored by
the Florida Department of Envi-


tion, mostly in fresh fruits and veg-
etables, are at stake if Congress
does not pass comprehensive im-
migration reform and provide an
effective agricultural guest worker
program.
"That means job losses, not
only in agriculture but also in oth-
er industries that are connected
with agriculture," said Hoblick.
"Congress must address this eco-
nomic issue."
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
.ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville , the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization. More informa-

Citrus Mutual urges President to sign Farm Bill


LAKELAND-Florida Citrus Mu-
tual Executive VP/CEO Michael
W. Sparks Thursday urged Presi-
dent Bush to sign the Farm Bill
into law after both the U.S. House
and Senate passed the measure
by veto-proof majorities.
'"President Bush should sign
this bill which for the first time
ever recognizes the importance'
of fruit and vegetables," Sparks
said. "This historic bill is good for
Florida citrus growers."
The bill, which passed in the
House by a 318-106 vote and the
Senate by an 81-15 vote, authoriz-


es almost $1.5 billion in manda-
tory spending for programs that
benefit fruit and vegetable grow-
ers. Florida is the second largest
producer of fruits and vegetables
in the U.S. and by far the largest
producer of citrus, a $9.3 billion
industry that creates 76,000 jobs.
"Citrus greening, a new dis-
ease that kills citrus trees, is
spreading throughout our indus-
try," Mr. Sparks said. "As a result,
the number one funding priority
for Florida citrus is pest and dit-
ease research. The current Farm
Bill addresses the need for invest-

Crash
Continued From Page 1
Mr. Connell said he avoided
hitting a woman who was driving
her motorcycle at the time of the
crash.
The accidents happened on
the same stretch of road lead-
ing out of Clewiston, at different
points. The worst crash, however,
was at S.R. 80, half a mile north of
C.R. 720., just after 7 a.m.
A line of automobiles there
showed semis, trucks and a bus
connected by a large chain of col-
lisions. Workers removed the rear.
*end of a bus carrying farm work-
ers to release a man who had
been pinned between two seats.
Officials with the Clewiston-
Police Department, the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office, and the
Florida Highway Patrol worked
the scene, while ambulances car-
ried the injured to Hendry Region-
al Medical Center in Clewiston.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee personally
transported one motorist caught


in the traffic to the ldcal dialysis
center.
Chad Adair, driving a white
van, sprang into action in the
wake of the accident, witnesses
said. He helped pull victims out of
the bus and worked his way from
the rear of the wreck to the front,
helping as many as he could.
"I set up a little triage here," he
said, pointing to the median.
According to him, the major-
ity of the farm workers sustained
injuries, with some reporting lac-
erations and other injuries.
But the man in the black Ford
Ranger was hurt the worst. Ac-
cording to Mr. Adair, that man lost
a great deal of blood, and was
bleeding from his mouth when
he was found unconscious.
As he view the wreckage, he
couldn't understand , why the
roads had not been closed by law
enforcement officials. He believes
the accident could have been pre-
vented.
"It was 100 percent because of
the smoke on the road," he said.
After the wreck, at the front
of the pile up, Jose Manuel Ri-


vera took pictures with his cam-
era. The driver was on his way
to Lakeland transporting mulch
when the smoke started affecting
his view of the road.
That's when Mr. Rivera pulled
over into a gas station and mulled
whether to continue driving.
"'Should I go or should I stay,'"
he remembers thinking to him-
self.
Minutes later, when he got
back on the road, he failed to spot
an SUV in front of him and rear-
ended the vehicle. In the blink of
an eye, he said, the bus carrying
the farm workers collided against
his semi, setting off the chain of
crashes that were to follow.
He saw the migrant workers
injured and later saw the Ford
Ranger pinned between the
semis. He did not sustain injuries,
and gave thanks for his fortune,
but he, too, thought back to the
man in the truck.
"If he lives, God is great," he
said in Spanish.

Mr. Perez said the use of the

Florida Fish Busters implements new rules


New Rules for
Florida's Freshwater
Fisheries

By: Bob Wattendorf,
FWC, with special thanks
to Dale Jones
Florida earned the title "Fish-
ing Capital of the World" by cou-
pling its great resources with re-
sponsible management of those
resources by the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion.
Relentlessly driving home the
message of how people can and
must be responsible stewards
falls under the purview of the
FWC as well.
The FWC gathers public input
through meetings and surveys
that create science - and social -
based rules, using solid research
and local impact to ensure a
bright future for Florida's resourc-
es and anglers. Several new fresh-
water fisheries rules go into effect
beginning July 1. These rules, are
designed for the long term to pre-
vent constant alteration.
"The FWC remains flexible to
changing environmental and so-
cial situations," said Dale Jones,
the coordinator of the changes
for the FWC, "So we can adapt to
evolving needs and provide qual-


ity, safe and sustainable opportu-
nities."
The following is a summary of
the new rules that will be includ-
ed in the next printed rules and
online at http://www.MyFWC.
com/Fishing/Rules.html.
To be consistent with other fire-
arm regulations, the FWC passed
a rule making it legal for someone
to possess a legal firearm on an
FWC fish management area.
Lakes Lorna Doone, Rich-
mond and Kirkman Pond, all in
Orange County, and Lake Dot in
Seminole County have been re-
moved from the FMA system. The
new rule also prohibits posses-
sion of cast nets in lakes Ivanhoe
and Santiago in Orange County.
The Joe Budd Pond FMA in
Gadsden County opens to pub-
lic fishing only when established
by executive order. This year, the
pond will be open to the public
during daylight hours on week-
ends between July 4 and Septem-
ber 2, including Independence
and Labor Day holiday week-
ends.
At Tenoroc FMA in Polk Coun-
ty, a new rule exempts permitted
alligator hunters from entering the
FMA at .designated entry points.
The rule also renamed lakes East
Pasture and West Pasture to Pine
Lakes. Other changes at Tenoroc
include limiting discharge of fire-


arms to the firing range or during
FWC-sponsored events and re-
quiring dogs to be leashed, unless
authorized by the FWC.
A statewide rule change rede-
fined species that may be taken
for use as bait with a dip net,
cast net (one. inch maximum
stretched mesh), trap or minnow
seine. Those species now include
golden shiners of any size and
other freshwater non-game fish
(including catfish) less than eight
inches total length, unless specifi-
cally prohibited.
Non-game freshwater fish of
any size also may be harvested
with cast nets (no mesh or net
size limit) in the South and North-'
east regions, in-Citrus and Glades
counties, and in most bf the
Southwest Region. An exception
makes possession or use of cast
nets in waters adjoining Saddle
Creek FMA in Polk County illegal.
This removes the size limit on cast
nets in the South Region, making
it consistent with other regions
where they are allowed.
Fishing gear used by recre-
ational or commercial fishermen
must be marked clearly and leg-
ibly with the fisherman's name
and address.
The most significant rule
changes concern Lake Okeecho-
bee to enhance the fishery's re-
covery from recent environmental


setbacks. The black bass length
regulation on Lake Okeechobee
moved from a 13 to 18 inch slot
limit to an 18 inch minimum
length limit. Also, a new rule es-
tablishes a 10 inch length for black
crappie on the lake. In addition,
the boundary definition for Lake
Okeechobee now includes the
C-41-A Canal from the intersec-
tion of the C-38 Canal upstream
to the S-84 structure.
On Lake Trafford in Collier
County, there is now a five fish
bag limit on black bass, which
must be 18 inches or longer, with
only one bass 22 inches or more
in total length.
Feel free to contact the FWC
and complete a survey (see MyF-
WC.com/Fishing and scroll down
in the right column to "Take the
Survey"). Purchasing a five-year
freshwater fishing license helps
conservation efforts and saves
you money. There is a special of-
fer going on right now where you
get free stuff in the mail when you
buy one (see http://www.MyFWC.
conmFishing/5yr-2008.html).

licenses are available at http://
