Emergency management prepares year-round


Team is tasked with
respond to
emergencies

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- In anticipation
of times of emergencies, families
are urged to have a plan ready.
Sorting through various scenari-
os, the task can be daunting, and
many go without one.
For Lupe Taylor, Amy Howard
and the emergency manage-
ment team, procrastination is
not an option.


The Hendry County depart-
ment is tasked with providing
the overall plan in case disaster
strikes; their jobs are dependent
entirely on planning for scenari-
os that escape the realm of plan-
ning.
In other words, their job is
to keep you safe once disaster
strikes.
Hurricanes, man-made emer-
gencies and possible terrorist at-
tacks are a few of the items on
the department's radar.
"The role of emergency man-
agement, take an all-hazards ap-
proach to community prepared-
ness, in general. We're not the


hurricane people, as much as
people think we are," said Ms.
Howard, the emergency man-
agement planner. While the
team does respond following
hurricanes, its work encompass-
es much more.
Day in and day out, the mem-
bers of the emergency manage-
ment team attend training,
workshops, seminars and carry
out drills with local agencies.,
The idea may be to keep finding
newer, better ways of providing
emergency response.
"We spend a lot of time just
planning. We spend a lot of time
running through scenarios of


what may happen, what could
happen, how we plan for it," she
said. "We're constantly learning;
constantly expanding our knowl-
edge base."
And while you won't see them
battling mock terrorists in drills --
it is much better concerted than
that -- a tremendous amount of
planning and preparation goes
into their work.
"In the emergency manage-
ment family, it's not if something
happens, it's when something
happens," said Ms. Howard. "It
may not be today, may not be
tomorrow, this month, or this
hurricane season, but something

will happen."
One of the most important
facets of the job is, following
a disaster, the team is charged
with maintaining an emergency
operations station to house the
most critical local departments
-- including police and fire. The
station becomes the center of all
decision-making after a disaster:
and allows a smoother line of
communication between the
various departments.
Providing immediateresponse
is very important when decisions
must be made promptly and ef-

weighs in


on politics,

Kid talks growing up
in America
By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
What does a 9-year-old think
of America's economic status?
What is a third-grader's predic-
tion on the election results?
Third grader Devon Jackson, 9,
gives a deep, probing insight into
the viewpoints and preferences of
a kid, after permission from his
mom, of course.
S After nearly two" minutes"0f
penetrating thought, Jackson can-
didly reveals his favorite food.
"Hamburgers with cheese! No,
never mind. I like hot dogs 'cause
they taste good," he says, hunch-
ing his shoulders.
Although it is nearly Dusk and
he has eaten dinner for the eve-
ning, Jackson is clearly not ready
to wind down. Bouncing up and
down on a chair in a T-shirt and
army fatigue shorts, he says, "My
favorite song is "Crank that Soulja
Boy," with a smile from ear to
ear.
earMy favorite color is blue," he
continues. "All blues. They are re-
ally bright colors and they look
nice."
What do kids his age really
have to worry about? Do they
even think about the economy or
understand politics?
"George Bush. He shouldn't
have sent the troops to fight. Most
of them got killed."
His attitude noticeably chang-
es according to the seriousness of
the conversation.
Now a more poised, stern third
grader emerges.
"I watch -the news with my
mama," he admits. "I think Hil-

HCSO makes Harlem drug bust


20-year-old arrest-
ed in operation

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HARLEM -- Hendry County
Sheriff's deputies arrested a
man in connection with an al-
leged drug operation in Har-
lem.
Officers made the arrest
in the early morning hours of
May 30, finding in the bedroom
where the suspect slept with
his girlfriend and two-year-old
daughter a small stockpile of il-
legal narcotics.
Lee Edward Odoms was ar-


rested at the home on Virginia
Avenue and charged with sev-
eral charges, including posses-
sion of cocaine with intent to
sell, possession of marijuana
and operating a drug house.
Judge James Sloan granted
the sheriff's office permission
to execute a search warrant at
the home just before the bust.
In the official police report,
officers detail smelling the
"overwhelming odor of mari-
juana" inside the bedroom,
and the suspect, defeated, al-
legedly told deputies he knew
why they were there.
He pointed to the top of
his dresser and, according to
the report, said, "That's every-


thing."
Investigators found four
grams of suspected crack co-
caine, 26 bags of marijuana,
clear plastic sandwich bags
and several small baggies. They
also found a gallon-sized zi-
plock bag containing approxi-
mately 206 grams of suspected
marijuana.
A shoe box underneath a
bed contained 30 Ecstacy pills,
and two bundles of cash held
together by rubber bands -- ap-
proximately $1,240.
The kitchen contained
more traces of drug activity,
with officers finding two digital

HRMC provides Digital Mammography


Hendry Regional Medical
Center has enhanced its health
and wellness services available
to women, with the addition of a
new Selenia" digital mammog-
raphy system from Hologic.
Digital mammography will allow
HRMC to provide its patients with
the highest quality of care in the
prevention and early detection
of breast cancer. Digital mam-
mography allows the radiologist
to view the X-ray image more
closely, zeroing in on suspicious
or concerning areas and enabling
them to make decisions about ad-
ditional images. Digital mammog-
raphy takes less than half the time
of traditional film-based exams.
In conjunction with the digi-
tal mammography unit, HRMC
is also offering Computer-Aided
Detection (CAD). CAD provides
a "second read" of the mam-

Plan now for
November
It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "0" Hike
- around Lake Okeechobee.
The Hike will begin in Paho-

1 Pahokee on November 30. That's
nine days of walking from 9 to 14


miles a day to make it all the way
around the lake. There is a little
bit of a challenge to this walk.
Hundreds of people have tried
over the years and (for some rea-
son) only about 20 to 30 percent
of the walkers manage to finish
the 9 days.
So plan now and get in shape
for November.

Agency on Aging of celebrates service


WEST PALM BEACH-On
Thursday, May 22, at the Kravis
Center in West Palm Beach more
than 340 attendees toasted the
Area Agency on Aging of Palm
Beach and Treasure Coast as it
celebrated 20 years of answers on
aging, assistance and advocacy
for the 552,856 seniors residing
throughout Palm Beach, Martin,
St. Lucie, Okeechobee and Indian
River counties. As Florida's largest
and the country's most awarded


Area Agency on Aging, the orga-
nization touched the lives of more
than 117,346 seniors last year.
Held in conjunction with Older
Americans Month, the event cel-
ebrated the enormous impact of
the organization's work. Keynote
speaker Assistant Secretary for
Aging Josefina Carbonell, the top
level official in aging for our na-
tion, urged all in attendance to be
advocates for long term care op-
tions and dignity for our seniors.


To quote the Secretary, "We
need to create a system of care in
which we would all want to grow
old -- one that will allow each and
every one of us to live out our lives
with dignity and independence."
Other attending dignitaries in-
cluded Secretary of Elder Affairs,
Dr. E. Douglas Beach. Countess
Henrietta deHoernle, a woman
who truly embodies the spirit of
philanthropy, provided words of
inspiration.


The celebration also honored
CEO Robert L. McFalls in his 30th
year in the aging network with
the organization's inaugural Rob-
ert L. McFalls Leadership in Aging
Award underwritten by Sterling'
Mortgage. Jim Sackett, anchor,
WPTV NewsChannel 5 served as
master of ceremonies.
The event served as a vehicle
for the Agency's Board of Direc-
tors, Advisory Council, service
providers and the community.

The meeting will be an informal
open house. Aerial photographs
and project information will be
available for review. FDOT
representatives will be available to

color, religion, sex, age, national
origin, handicap, or family status.

Who is eligible for baptism?


By Jackie Miller
This week in Vacation Bible
School our Youth are studying the
subject of Baptism. We are cov-
ering such subjects as "What is
Sin", "Who Is Jesus Christ", and
"The Who, What, Where and
How of Baptism". Jesus in Mat-
thew 28:18-20 said, "All power
has been given unto me in Heav-
en and Earth. Go ye therefore
and teach all nations, baptizing
them in the name of the Father,
and of the Son, and of the Holy
Ghost; teaching them to observe
all things that I have commanded
you, and lo I am with you always,
even unto the end of the World."
So Baptism is a matter of positive
law, and if any one is to be Bap-
tized by divine authority it is be-
cause God has so ordained.
The Bible teaches that there
are certain things necessary be-
fore a person is a candidate for
Baptism. First, they must be a
sinner. Ezekiel 18:20 teaches that
sin is not inherited from parents.
1 John 3:4 teaches that "Sin is
the transgression of God's law."
James 4:17 says "He that knoweth
to do good, and doeth it not, to
him it is sin." Babies have not
transgressed God's law or known
to do good, and therefore are not
sinners. They are not candidates


for Baptism. Second, one must
have the Gospel taught to himn
and understand it and believe it.
Jesus said in Mark 16:15-16 "Go
into all the world and preach the
Gospel to every creature, he that
believeth and is baptized shall be
saved." Babies cannot understand
the Gospel and believe it and are
therefore not candidates for Bap-
tism. Third, one must repent of
sins. Peter preaching on the day of
Pentecost was asked, "What shall
we do?" Peter, who had the keys
of the Kingdom said, "Repent and
be Baptized everyone of you in
the name of Jesus Christ, for the
remission of sins and ye shall re-
ceive the gift of the Holy Ghost."
Since babies can't repent, and
have nothing to repent of, they
are not candidates for Baptism.
Fourth, one must Confess faith in
Christ to be a candidate for Bap-
tism. In Acts 8 Philip was teaching
the Ethiopian who asked: "Here is
water, what doth hinder me to be
Baptized?" Philip replied, "If thou
believes with all thine heart, thou
mayest." The Eunuch confessed,
"I believe that Jesus is the Son of
God" (Acts 8:37), and then Philip
baptized him. Fifth, one must un-
derstand what he is doing when
he is Baptized. Romans 6:16-18
teaches we must obey from the


heart that form of doctrine de-
livered us, being then made free
from sin, we become the servant
of righteousness. This is obeying
the Gospel (Romans 6:3-5).
The nature of Baptism makes
it impossible for it to apply to in-
fants. Strictly speaking, an infant
can not be Baptized, and one nev-
er was Baptized. An infant may
have the misfortune to be put
through a ceremony that may be
called Baptism, but it is not Bap-
tism. In the Scriptures, Baptism is
inseparably connected with faith
(Mark 16:16, with the exercise of
a good conscience (I Peter 3:21),
and the promptings of the heart
(Romans. 6:16-18). But these
things, can not be predicated of an
infant and therefore, an infant can
not be Baptized. Jesus said con-
cerning little children, "Of such
is the Kingdom of Heaven." They
are innocent and safe and there-
fore not in need of Salvation.
By definition, "Baptism is the
immersion in water of a confess-
ing, penitent believer in the Gos-
pel of Jesus Christ, for the remis-
sion of sins, to receive the gift of
the Holy Spirit." This meets the re-
quirements of what the Bible has
to say on the subject of Baptism.

New Fundraiser
PTO has a new fundraiser,
Recycle for Education! Please
encourage your students to col-
lect 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 an 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.

The love of a father on Father's Day


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It is not easy being a father.
Someone once noted that chil-
dren go through four stages. First
they call you DaDa. Then they call
you Daddy. As they mature they
call you Dad. Finally they call you
collect.
Dads, we love you. The role
of a father is more important in
today's world than ever before.
Today's father needs to be nurtur-
ing of his children, supportive of
his wife, and yet at the same time
provide the spiritual leadership of
the home that the Bible accords
to fathers. It is a rare and special
kind of man who can combine all
three of these qualities and have
an impact.
God puts us all in each other's
lives to impact one another. We
should never underestimate the
power, of our actions. With one
small gesture, we can change a
person's life.
In honor of fathers every-
where, of mothers who have to
be fathers and fathers who have
to be mothers, and of all of those
special people who reach out and
change lives for the better, I pres-


ent the following story as it was
shared with me. May God bless
you all!
The pickle jar as far back as
I can remember sat on the floor
beside the dresser in my parents'
bedroom. When he got ready for
bed, Dad would empty his pock-
ets and toss his coins into the
jar. When the jar was filled, Dad
would sit at the kitchen table and
roll the coins before taking them
to the bank.
Taking the coins to the bank
was always a big production. Ev-
ery time he slid the box of rolled
coins across the bank counter to-
ward the cashier, he would grin
proudly, "These are for my son's
college fund. He'll never work at
the mill all his life like me."
We would always celebrate
each deposit by stopping for ice
cream. I always got chocolate.
Dad always got vanilla. When
the clerk at the ice cream parlor
handed Dad his change, he would
show me the few coins nestled in
his palm. "When we get home,
we'll start filling the jar again." He
always let me drop the first coins
into the empty jar. As they rattled
around, we grinned at each other.
"You'll get to college on pennies,


nickels, (dimes and quarters," he
said. "But you'll get there; I'll see
to that."
No matllr how rough things
got at home, Dad continued to
doggedly drop his coins into the
jar. Even the summer when Dad
got laid off from the mill and
Mama had to serve dried beans
several times a week, not a single
dime was taken from the jar.
The years passed and I finished
college,and took a job in another
town. Once, while visiting my
parents, I used the phone in their
bedroom, and noticed that the
pickle jar was gone. A lump rose
in my throat as I stared at the spot
beside the dresser where the jar
had always stood. It had served its
purpose, and had been removed.
My dad was a man of few
words, and never lectured me on
the values of perseverance and
faith. The pickle jar had taught me
these virtues far more eloquently
than any amount of words could
have done. When I married, I told
my wife about the significant part
the pickle jar had played in my life
as a boy. In my mind, it defined,
more than anything else, how
much my dad had loved me.
After our daughter was born,


we spent the holidays with my
parents. After dinner, Mom and
Dad sal next to each other on the
sola, taking turns cuddling their
first grandchild. Jessica needed
changing, so my wife took her
from Dad's arms and carried Jes-
sica into my parents' bedroom to
diaper her. When my wife came
back into the living room, there
was a strange mist in her eyes.
She handed Jessica back to
Dad before taking my hand and
leading me into the room. "Look,"
she said softly, her eyes directing
me to a spot on the floor beside
the dresser. To my amazement,
there, as if it had never been re-
moved, stood the old pickle jar,
the bottom already covered with
coins. I walked over to the pickle
jar, dug down into my pocket, and
pulled out a fistful of coins. With
a gamut of emotions choking me,
I dropped the coins into the jar. I
looked up and saw that Dad, car-
rying Jessica, had slipped quietly
into the room. Our eyes locked,
and we smiled.
1 don't know what heaven will
be like, but I know what God is
like. He is like a loving Father who
invests in' us daily to give us a fu-
ture and a hope.

"It's all the same God!"


-- Or is it the same?


The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Over the years people have
asked me to join their church.
My usual reply is to respectfully
decline. Occasionally, I've asked
what might be offered that I do
not already have, and usually find
out that I have it where I am. What
seems to be asked has to do with
what someone has found in their
own faith tradition and thought to
be unique; but maybe it's not that
special after all. Sometimes, "con-
version experiences" bring with
them a special feeling and a drive
to share a wonderful moment
with someone who should listen
and maybe, just maybe, have it
too. That's OK, if it is done with
respect and a readiness to listen
as well as share.
I've heard all sorts of reasons
about why persons belong to dif-
ferent churches. One person went
for the programs offered for their
children, another went because
L the hour was more convenient to
their personal schedule, another
went because of the particular
crowd that attended that church,
another because it was good for


business, another because they
could always bet a parking space
"up front.' One young lady told
me she3 was going to a religious
center that was not related to her
upbringing or family tradition.
I asked her "So, you've de-
cided in fact that the Lord did not
come into the world, and that Je-
sus wasn't really the Son of God?"
"Oh no," she answered, "That
had nothing to do with it it's just
that they have a bunch of people
there that are real 'swingers'."
As it seems, people affiliate with
churches many times for reasons
that have nothing to do with what
is believed or asked of them, or
what they really believe them-
selves. They "go through the mo-
tions" and, then, there is that old
saw "It's the same God, anyway."
That's a real opportunity to
ask "Well, do you believe in...?"
And then comes some stuttering
around, or "well..." or maybe a
quotation of some Bible verse.
I'm reminded of the parable of
the blind men trying to describe
an elephant.- each "seeing" some
part and being sure that his part
is what the elephant is really like..
Each becomes committed to his
viewpoint without taking a look


(or in this case, a "touch") at
what the others have discovered.
Is it the "same God?" Yes, but
it makes a difference. At some
point, depth in faith requires
making commitment and mak-
ing decisions about what really is
believed. Going from "member"
to "believer" takes exploration,
commitment, study, involvement,
understanding.
When membership is rooted
in only an attachment for some
convenient reason, no real sav-
ing belief will be there when the
crises hit. The call is to "build
a house upon a rock (Matthew
7:24)" and when the hard times
come, it will stand (vs. 25). Those
are the times when the kids are
in trouble, or there has been a
layoff, or there is a sickness' to
be faced, or when a loved one is
lost, or when something happens
that.is beyond our understanding
and we need to know what it all
means. At such times "It's all the
same God" just won't do.
Knowing what God is saying
when there is no easy or quick
explanation does not come with-
out asking hard questions and
finding the answer for each one
through prayer, study, worship,


being "doers of the word and not
hearers only." That's when the
connection between faith and
practice can come to be "...more
than conquerors (Romans 8:37 -
39)." There is an interesting com-
mentary by Luke (Acts 15)'when
an early struggle in the Church
over whose customs were to be
followed ensued. Peter cautions
about "putting a yoke upon the
neck of the disciples which nei-
ther we nor our fathers have been
able to bear (vs. 10)." and con-
cludes "But we believe that we
shall be saved through the grace
of the Lord Jesus, just as they will
(vs. 11)." Different understand-
ings, different interpretations, dif-
ferent meanings, but at heart of it
all believing.
Each found God, even if not al-
ways in the same way, in search-
ing, seeking, praying, doing,
working at it. Just when we think
we have all of the answers, we
have to allow for hard questions
if we are to grow in faith. Who
knows? Maybe we'll learn some-
thing, find something, be able to
love God and others with greater
depth, love and understanding.

fectively, Ms. Howard said. Having
everyone in one location allows
that to happen.
"We're the lead agency in
coordinating the emergency re-
sponse," said Ms. Howard, who
works with her supervisor, Ms.
Taylor in the unit. "We're not the
law enforcement experts, but we
bridge the gap between agencies
- law enforcement, fire, health
department. We're a catalyst for
bringing everyone together."
For Ms. Howard, who first
started in 2004 and returned after
a short period, the job is a'chance
to help people when it matters


most.
"It's great job. It's very reward-
ing," she said.
And why would someone
want to share the responsibility of
emergency response?
"It's a desire to help people.
I've always been the 'what-if' per-
son. It's a blessing and a curse,
but once you get into it, you find
that helping people in this behind
the scenes kind of way is much
more rewarding than being on
the scene."
According to her, the emer-
gency operations department is
an offshoot of the civil defense
program formulated in the days
of the World Wars. Especially so
after the 9/11 attacks, the depart-
ment has become an increasingly


important addition to every coun-
ty in the state and is funded pri-
marily through federal and state
grants.
The members hope that it will
never be necessary to put their
training to use, though, but ac-
cede that complacency is some-
thing they'll never adhere to, no
matter how small the chances of
a disaster happening may be.
"You can never be too pre-
pared," she said. "We plan for the
worst, but we hope for the best."
For more information about
the department, or to volunteer
to assist in times of emergencies,

fice is located in LaBelle.

Lawmen memorized


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Law enforcement personnel
came together May 28 to pay their
respects and a debt of gratitude to
two Hendry County lawmen who
lost their lives in the line of duty. A
stone monument to their memo-
ry was dedicated that day in a sol-
emn ceremony under the oaks in
front of the Sheriff's Office.
The monument stands silently
in memory of Sheriff Earl Dyess,
Sr. and Deputy Brian Haas. Sher-
iff Dyess died in August 17, 1980,
stabbed in the early morning
hours by several young prowlers.
He had been Hendry County's top
lawman since 1961, when it was
just a two-man department.
Deputy Haas died in a crash
on US 27 when he was on his
way to a answer a prowler call
April 24, 2004. He had only been
on the department since August
2002 and went on the road Dec.
1,2003.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee noted the
contingents from other local de-
partments who came to honor
these two fallen Hendry County
- officers. Personnel from Clewis-
ton Police Department, Seminole
Police Department, the State At-
torney's Office and Clewiston
Fire Department stood solemnly
with Hendry County officers and
members of the public during the
brief ceremony.
Family members of the fallen
officers had seats of honor. Sher-
iff Dyess' two sons, Fred and
Sermon, and his grandson, Fred
Dyess Jr., along with Bob and
Norie Hass and Sonny Haas sat
quietly as their loved ones were
eulogized.


Rev. C.W, Howard spoke lov-
ingly of his memories of Sheriff
Dyess, Sr. his high school men-
tor. Rev. Howard admitted he
was a troubled young man at that
time, and credited Sheriff Dyess,
Sr., with helping him get his life
in order. The young man even
worked for his mentor, manning
the radio from midnight to 7:30
a.m. then spent a half day in
school as a senior. He said Sheriff
Dyess, Sr., had a unique ability to
relate to people and he knew
how to express discipline and
reach out to "the underdog."
The reverend noted "Blessed
are the peacemakers," and ad-
monished those in the audience
to remember their courage, their
willingness to put themselves on
the line to combat crime and pro-
tect the community we all live in.
Longtime Hendry County law-
man Ernie Ford and Sgt. Aaron
Angel, who was Brian Haas' su-
pervisor, represented the depart-
ment's strong ties to -the young
deputy. Deputy Haas, just 21
when he was taken from this
world, had always wanted to be

in law enforcement. He was a
kind, trustworthy individual who
had a passion for his job.
Each family member was giv-
en a white carnation which they
placed in vases on either side of
the monument.
Retired Air Force Colonel Tom
Corbitt attended ceremonies at
the National Law Enforcement
Officers Memorial in Washington,
D.C. last month where he took
rubbings of Sheriff Dyess' and
Deputy Haas' names from the
monument. The families were
then presented with the rubbings
as keepsakes of their loved ones.
Mr. Corbitt said he got a global
and national perspective on law
enforcement issues at the cer-
emony in the nation's Capitol.
American Legion chaplain
Mark Stancel asked the audience
to remember Florida Highway
Patrol Trooper Brad Crook from
Hendry County, who was killed in
Tampa several years ago.
The solemn event not only fo-
cused on the "loss of those who
gave all," but also on those who
"still work to protect and serve."

Eco-tour educates community on water issues


Sally McPherson, my col-
league at the South Florida Water
Management District, recently
conducted a field trip to educate
members of the community
about water issues in Southwest
Florida. The tour started in Ft. My-
ers and proceeded through Hen-
dry and Glades counties. It was
very well-received by the partici-
pants, some of whom live in the
Hendry/Glades County area.
On a sunny Friday in May, 47
business and community lead-
ers with a sense of adventure
hopped on "The Magic Bus" for a
tour of the Caloosahatchee River
Basin and beyond to examine
first-hand the water issues in the
region.
In "The Magic School Bus"
series of children's books, Ms.
Frizzle teaches science in a rather
unorthodox manner by loading
her class in the bus and exploring
unknown territory.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) took
a page from Ms. Frizzle when Sal-
ly McPherson at the Lower West
Coast Service Center led the all-
day field trip.
After a kick-off briefing at
the Edison-Ford Winter Estates
where Dr. Bill Hammond spoke
about the ecology of the region
and set the stage for the day, par-
ticipants boarded the bus.
Driving all the way to Fort My-
ers to participate were several


community leaders from Hendry
County including, Janice Groves
with the Economic Development
Council, Sara Townsend with the
LaBelle Chamber of Commerce,
Janet Papineau with Hendry
County, Gene McAvoy with Hen-
dry County Extension Office. Sites
visited in the Glades area included
a river stop at Barron Park in La-
Belle, views of.Lake Okeechobee
in Clewiston, The SFWMD field
station in Clewiston, the South
Bay RV Park, and the large pump
station at 20-Mile bend (S-5A) as
well as the recently opened rec-
reation area at Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 1-East.
Experts shuttled on and off
the bus to discuss the history and
cultural heritage of the river, res-
toration projects along the river
for water storage and water qual-
ity, and future land uses in the ba-
sin. Speakers addressed the his-
tory, missions and governance of
water management as well as de-
velopments that led to the need
for current restoration efforts.
At a park beside the river in La-
Belle, the director of the Hendry
County Agricultural Extension Of-
fice spoke about the many facets
of agriculture and its economic
impact in southwest Florida.
A drive-by of the SFWMD
Clewiston Field Station included
information on how the District
operates and maintains the sys-
tem of canals, pumping stations


and water control structures and
how those responsibilities have
multiplied with Everglades resto-
ration projects coming on line.
The bus navigated up to the
top of the Herbert Hoover Dike
for a view of Lake Okeechobee,
so shrunk by the ongoing drought
that there was actually a fire rag-
ing inside the lake.
At a lunch break beside the
Dike in South Bay, the Lake
Okeechobee Division Director
spoke about issues and projects
affecting the Lake before the
bus moved on to the District's
largest pumping station to learn
about the enormity of the role
water movement plays in living
in south pumping station to learn
about the enormity of the role
water movement plays in living
in south
The last stop was at a storm-
water treatment area (STA) where
water .is manipulated through
treatment cells and where plants
remove phosphorus and other
nutrients from the water before it
is discharged into the Everglades.
The goal of the "Magic Bus
Tour" was to have 47 commu-
nity leaders become aware of re-
gional water issues and be able
to pass their knowledge on to
others. Participants came from a
variety of backgrounds and expe-
riences and now they have new
knowledge to share.

Area football teams prepare for summer


Area football teams prepare for summer


Glades Central plans
a weekend social,
while other teams get
ready for camp

By Naji Tobias
IN1 Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION Foot-
ball season begins in late August,
but the summer offseason is ar-
guably the most important time
for a potential college football
prospect.
For inquiring minds out there,
why is that?
It's because there is a myriad
of summer football camps avail-
able to the area's athletes, with
opportunities for them to impress
college football coaches and
scouts throughout the nation.
Underclassmen from Pahokee,
Clewiston, Glades Day, Glades
Central and Moore Haven got
their first chance to make a last-
ing impression on the masses in
their recent spring football prac-
tices and games. Some from the
area, including Pahokee's Bran-
din Hawthorne and Glades Day's
Jarrett Swaby, to name just two,
were fortunate enough to im-
prove their chances of landing a
scholarship offer with their stellar
play,
Several athletes in particular
have already made commitments
to their colleges of choice. Glades
Central's Henry Orelus, a senior-
to-be offensive lineman who
committed to Louisiana State
University (LSU) earlier this year
and Pahokee's Nu'Keese Richard-
son, a senior-to-be wide receiver/
quarterback who, on May 30,
committed to the University of
Florida both have their plans laid
out.


That's important to know be-
cause some athletes will be lining
up college offers during this criti-
cal period, maybe even at a sum-
mer camp, depending on how
they perform in these next few
weeks.
Most importantly, however,
this summer period is widely con-
sidered the best opportunity for
teams to promote unity as they
prepare for the upcoming sea-
son.
Moore Haven's summer
plans
For the Moore Haven Terriers
football team, coached by Jason
Bond, the summer is relatively
simple: Since Monday, the team
began an eight-week stretch
of weightlifing sessions at the
school. The players will be work-
ing out on Mondays, Wednesdays
and Fridays in the late afternoon.
Bond, in his first season, led the
Terriers to a 4-6 record in 2007, is
focused on the team being more
competitive in district play for
the upcoming season District
6-1A also includes Glades Day,
Evangelical Christian and St. John
Neumann. The Terriers coach
would like for all of his players to
get serious about improving their
skills, .strength and conditioning
throughout the summer.
"I hope the kids get stronger
this summer through our weight
training program," Bond .said.
"Lifting hard and having good eat-
ing habits over the summer can
help our team a lot this fall."
The Terriers will also be taking
part in the Fellowship- of'Chris-
tian Athletes (FCA)/Victory Sports
Agency (VSA) football camp, held
from July 10-13 at Webber In-
ternational University in Babson
Park.


It will be a four-day, three-.
night camp which will consist of a
series of fundamental drills, one-
on-one, group and team compe-
titions, team bleed and building
sessions and the highly coveted
seven-on-seven competition.
Last summer, Moore Haven
finished third out of seven teams
that competed in the tournament,
which included The Vanguard
School-Lake Wales, Haines City,
Frostproof and Lakeland Chris-
tian, to name a few.
All of those schools will likely
return and Moore Haven is look-
ing to win the FCA/VSA seven-on-
seven tournament next month.
"We've returned almost ev-
eryone from last year's seven-on-
seven competition," Bond said.
"There are some bigger schools
than us that will be there, but we
hope to compete to the best of
our abilities."
Camps with Clewiston and
Glades Day
Joe Roth and Pete Walker, the
head coaches of the Clewiston Ti-
gers and the Glades Day Gators,
would like for their teams to take
advantage of the summer camps
available to them. As both teams
try to keep travel to a minimum,
given the skyrocketing costs of
gasoline and diesel fuel, which
already cost more than $4 per gal-
lon, they recently joined forces to
compete with each other
in a series of seven-on-seven
sessions the past two weeks.
Last Wednesday, both teams
competed at Glades Day School
and just yesterday, the two schools
faced each other in Clewiston. It's
been deemed a great success thus
far, according to Roth.
"Coach Walker and I talked
recently about our seven-on-
seven workouts," Roth said. "We
wanted to work together before


we head out to camp later 'this
month."
Both schools will be participat-
ing in a summer camp from June
19-21, held at the University of
Central Florida (UCF) in Orlando.
"The skill players have the op-
portunity to get better with their
route running," Walker said. "This
camp will allow the quarterbacks
to improve time with their receiv-
ers and read coverages better, the
defensive backs and linebacks
get to learn different types of of-
fensive coverage schemes and
college coaches get a chance to
coach the kids. The players will
get a chance to perfect their re-
spective positions."
Clewiston and Glades Day will
also give their athletes an oppor-
tunity. to build on their strength
and conditioning, through a se-
ries of summer workouts in the
weight room. Clewiston's ses-
sions will be held each Monday,
Wednesday and Thursday for the
next nine weeks, with morning
workouts beginning at 10 a.m.
and evening sessions starting at
6 p.m.
Over at Glades Day, the weight-
lifting sessions will take place
each Monday, Tuesday and Thurs-
day throughout the summer and
will run from 3 to 6 p.m.
Later this summer, Clewiston
and Glades Day would like for
other teams to participate in the
seven-on-seven competitions,
including Lake Worth, American
Heritage-Plantation, and especial-
ly Pahokee, who is the defending
Adidias seven-on-seven national
champion.
"For us to go against Pahokee,
it would be good work," Roth
said. "But they're so much more
advanced than us right now.
Eventually, after we get back from
camp, we'll try to get some more


schools to participate with us."
Roth is hoping that a seven-
on-seven tournament could exist
in Clewiston this summer. Nev-
ertheless, he understands that it
might have to wait until at least
next year given the fact that many
schools may already have had
their summer football schedules
in place.


"Our defense is a strong as ever
and our offense has a number of
returning weapons."
More information on the two
national tournaments will be
available soon. Also, there's no
word yet as to whether or not Pa-
hokee will compete with Clewis-
ton and Glades Day later this sum-
mer.


Defending the national Glades Central plans a


championship
As the Pahokee Blue Devils
prepare to defend their Adidas
national seven-on-seven cham-
pionship, Blaze Thompson, the
head coach, is making sure that
his players have the chance to at-
tend as many camps as possible.
The Blue Devils defeated Crespi,
Calif. by a score of 28-27 in over-
time in the national finals, held in
Los Angeles last July.
Last weekend, some of his
players attended football camps
at Florida Atlantic University
(FAU) and Florida International
University (FIU). Later this sum-
mer, Pahokee's top players may
get to go to some other camps at
colleges such as
Auburn and Florida State Uni-
versity.
But what's really on Thomp-'
son's mind is the Adidas seven-
on-seven competition, which, ac-
cording to him, will convene with
regional play in Orlando and the
national championship to be held
in Atlanta. The Nike seven-on-sev-
en national tournament, the other
one that Pahokee will certainly
participate in, will be held region-
ally in Miami, while the national
championship will be in Portland,
Ore.
"I think we have a good pos-
sibility of winning the national
championship," Thompson said.


weekend trip
Jessie Hester, the new coach
at Glades Central, says he's not
a big fan of summer camps, but
plans to spend quality time with
his players in other ways.
Weightlifting sessions, which
are. voluntary, will be available
to the Raiders football players
four days a week, from Mondays
through Thursdays. Morning and
evening sessions will be offered.
"We want the weightlifting
schedule to be flexible because
some of the kids may have a job
in the daytime," Hester said. "We
want them to be able to both par-
ticipate in football and work."
Later this summer, Hester
would like to organize a weekend
social trip for the Raiders football
team. It's an effort to promote
unity within the team.
"We want all of our players to
get to know each other on a social
level," Hester said. "We need the
players to develop a family-type
atmosphere and to care about
each other. In the end, we want
all our kids to be able to jell to-
gether before the season starts." *
The Kick-off Classic games will
be on August 29 and.30, while the
regular season will begin on Fri-
day, September 5.

Hendry County Speedway race report, wrap up


Hendry County Speedway
hosted another demolition derby
on Saturday. When the dust and
steam settled the number 99 Ed
Steinhoff of West Palm Beach had
outlasted the competition. The
Limited Late Models went through
the night without tearing up any-
one's car. Tim Powers number 44
of Okeechobee took the honors in


that feature. Joe Henke number 3
of Naples looked inside Powers
on turn 4 several time to try and
steal the lead away, but a slip up
in turn 2 cost Henke the 2nd spot
that went to Thomas Scott num-
ber 61 of Okeechobee. Henke ran
3rd.
Tommy Hill number 1H of
Clewiston took a heat race win in


Street Stock. When the cars rolled
out for the feature it was John Wil-
son number 64 of Okeechobee
who took the win. Tommy Hill
had to settle for 2nd while point
leader Jerry Ferrell of Okeechobee
number 98 ran 3rd. John Basquin
number 67 of Clewiston made his
return to the Pure Stock Division
at Hendry. Like he had spent no


time off he was right back in vic-
tory lane.
Brian Morgan number 9 of
Okeechobee was giving a hard
chase but was unable to get by
finishing his car in 2nd.
Travis Drapal number 74 of La-
belle 3rd, Eddie Lawler number
12 of Dania found a new motor
for his Bomber car and the big


sled ran just fine winning the heat
and feature for the class. Lynn
Reed number 3m of Miami took
the 2nd spot and Phil Peterson
number 88 of Hialeah ran 3rd.
David Augsperger of Palm Beach
Gardens took over the driving
for car number 00 while his son
Christian took a visit to China. His
son will be proud of him winning


the feature and moving that car
into the points lead after Devlin
DelleChiaie 3D of Jensen Beach
took a DNF.
Charlie Pascal number 33 of Ft.
Pierce took 2nd, but failed to take
his car to be teched after the race
resulting in being disqualified.
Heath Walker number 4 would
then move up to the 2nd spot.

Orange Crop estimate remains the same


LAKELAND-Florida's 2007-
2008 orange crop estimate
remained the same at 168.5
million boxes, according to
the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture (USDA) which released a
revised citrus forecast on June
10.
The 168.5 million boxes are
made up of 80.5 million boxes
of Early-Mids, 3.0 million boxes
of Navels and 85 million boxes
of Valencias.
"We're in the stretch run of


the '07-'08 Florida citrus sea-
son and this has certainly been
'a good, quality crop," said Mi-
chael W. Sparks, executive VP/
CEO of Florida Citrus Mutual.
"We've rebuilt inventories to
the point where we're con-
cerned about fruit prices to
growers and that's something
we will have to watch as the
season ends and we head into
'08-'09."
The Florida citrus industry
saw a decline in orange pro-


duction from 230 million boxes
to 129 million boxes during
the five-year period between
the 2001-2002 season and the
2006-2007 season. This reduc-
tion was due in large part to
the effects. of hurricanes, de-
velopment and pests and dis-
eases such as citrus canker and
greening.
A 168.5 million box orange
crop would represent about a
31 percent increase from the
2006-2007 season. The USDA


issues its initial estimate in Oc-
tober and then revises it each
month through the end of the
.citrus season in July.
In the revised estimate, Flor-
ida grapefruit increased from
26.3 million boxes to 26.5 mil-
lion b6oes. Tangelos remained
unchanged at 1.5 million boxes
and tangerines increased from
5.3 million boxes to 5.5 million
boxes.
The complete USDA crop
forecast is available from the


Florida Agriculture Statistics
Service online at http://www.

State/Florida/ Publications/Cit-
rus/cpfp.htm
Founded in 1948 and cur-
rently representing nearly 8,000
grower members, Florida Cit-
rus Mutual is the state's largest
citrus growers' organization.
