County selects outside contract attorney


Local leaders hire
lobbyist to repre-
sent the area and its
future

By Naji Tobias
Clewiston News
HARLEM - The fight for sur-
vival is on and it's full steam
ahead for local leaders.
During the Tuesday, July 8
Hendry County Commission
Meeting at the Harlem Civic Cen-
ter, the county's board of com-
missioners unanimously voted to


approve the hiring of an outside
contract attorney and lobbyist.
The county selected Curtis
Kiser, J.D. as its contracted attor-
ney to represent them in efforts
to finding out the details of the
progress of the well-document-
ed land deal between U.S. Sugar
and the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD).
Not only that, Mr. Kiser is expect-
ed to meet and develop proper
contacts and relationships with
governmental officials from the
local, regional and state levels.
The contract terms between
Mr. Kiser and the county are
set for at least two months and


$12,500 per month for the ser-
vices.
County commissioners made
it a point to note that after the
two-month period expires, then
the contract will be under review
to see whether or not enough
time has been put into the job
description.
"Here in Clewiston, the citi-
zens are concerned about their
jobs and the land immediately
surrounding the area," Mr. Kiser
said. "I want to make sure the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District and other agencies
understand the concerns of Hen-
dry County and Clewiston."


The contract is expected to be
finalized by the end of this week,
county officials said.
Mr. Kiser, who currently prac-
tices as a partner for the Holland
and Knight law firm, served in
the state senate from 1984-1994.
The Florida State University Col-
lege of Law graduate was hon-
ored as a Legislative Excellence
Award recipient by the Florida
Audubon Society for contribut-
ing to the improvement of the
Everglades legislation and the
support of the Preservation 2000
program.
Mr. Kiser was appointed by
Jeb Bush, the state's former gov-

Caloosahatchee Riverway Project, restoration


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
The Caloosahatchee River
has always been a natural fo-
cus for people in this area and
has an important role to play in
the future.
From time immemorial it
was an integral part of the nat-
ural water system that formed
the Everglades. The meander-
ing river was a natural filter
for sheetflow coming from the
north. Water flowed from the
Upper Kissimmee area to Lake
Okeechobee south to create
the River of Grass. That natu-
ral flow was interrupted when
the Caloosahatchee River was
channelized and straightened,


allowing water to flow directly
from the lake to estuaries at
the Gulf of Mexico and Atlantic
Ocean.
In recent years, we have
seen the devastation high wa-
ter flows, containing large
amounts of pollutants, have
had on those estuaries and on
the quality of river water itself.
Finding the solution to' this
problem has placed environ-
mentalists, civic leaders and
coastal and interior residents at
odds.
With the recent announce-
ment of United States Sugar
Corporation's intention to sell
its holdings out to South Flori-
da Water Management District


(SFWMD), environmentalists
see great opportunities to re-
store the natural flow of water
to the Everglades.
Forest Michael of Transys-
tems, recently presented his
vision of one possible future
with his CaloosaHatchee River-
way project to the Riverwatch
group. He feels his plan would
enhance navigation, wildlife
habitat and agriculture as well
as benefit the area's people
and the river itself. He made his
presentation at the July 9 River-
watch meeting.
His plan includes "building"
five lakes along the river - recre-

What's currently at stake are

could be greatly affected by the
June 24 decision to sell all of its
187,000 acres of land and as-
sets to the water district., The
amount, originally set for $1.75
billion, can cost the water district
up to $3.5 billion once it's said
and done.

Tuesday fundraiser
to help hospital runs
through summer

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- While the
summer months may be a tra-
ditionally slower time for restau-
rants here, one local business
owner is offering'her help to a
worthy cause.
Kersten Maxson, the owner
of Beef O'Brady's in Clewiston,
is playing her .part in supporting
the local Hendry Regional Medi-
cal Center Hospital Foundation.
Who knows? Maybe your
next lunchtime order will help to
pay for a new emergency room
-- well, a portion of it, at least.
Every Tuesday until the end
of the summer, the restaurant is
donating 15 percent of each pur-
chase toward the foundation. All
a customer has to do is let their
server know they would like to
help the foundation, and the res-
taurant earmarks the funds.
The foundation will receive a
check when the fundraising pro-
gram is finished.
Glenda Wilson, who runs
the foundation, is excited about
the business' willingness to give
back.
"I like to think that they're
helping us and we're helping
them," said Ms. Wilson. "It's
wonderful exposure for the
foundation and I think it's good
of Beef O'Brady's to include us
in their part of trying to establish
their business in the summer
months."
The program seems to be
having very positive results.
At a chamber social recently,

Stress and time management; connections, perspectives


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Everybody is aware of "stress"
and the problems stress will
cause.
We're told to avoid it: stress
is "bad" and does bad things to
people.
Avoiding it is easier said than
done or it wouldn't be a problem
for so many people.
A hospital where I interned
had patients on anti-anxiety med-
ications but too much and they
weren't even motivated to get
better or well enough to want to
get out of the hospital.
Some stress is useful but how
much?
The other day I wanted to get
an answer to a question from an
office in Miami.
I called but the person who
I krna ,uld have tho answer


No options were presented
that would help me get back to
the operator, so I punched some
random numbers.
.1 then got a message saying
that I had composed an "invalid
extension."
Would I like a directory of ex-
tensions? Yes, I would, but was
told to punch in the first three
letters of the person I wished to
contact.
Fortunately, I knew the opera-
tor's name - and was returned to
her - the extension wasn't "0" but
I got back to her anyway.
I was put through to an assis-
tant, who assured me the person
where I left the message was in
the building; would I like her
paged?
Why not! But the page didn't
produce any results.
Nevertheless, I had the opera-
tor's extension now, and could
apt hnrk tn h b-- ino rirn t-


*1
minutes in the "telephone laby-
rinth" before getting the assur-
ance an answer would be forth-
coming and I'd be able to get
what I sought.
Total time: about thirty min-
utes. Now for some, this would
be a lot of "stress."
There is an old and honorable
hypothesis that "frustration leads
to aggression: and aggressive feel-
ings with no outlet can certainly
cause stress.
Was this a "stressful" moment?
No.
It had taken me about a half-
hour to get some information that
in the past would have taken lots
longer if I had to communicate by
letter, or if I had to call back the
next day, or if we lived when it
would have meant a trip.
There seems to be something
in people that says "I want it, and
I want it right now!" That's what
si tres in man7 cases.


It seems when we invent some-
thing, the next step is to make it
go faster.
When it -doesn't, we get
"stressed.'
We forget that life went on at
a slower pace when technology
was in its infancy; people lived
less well-off in many ways than
we believe we live, but they didn't.
seem to have the "stress" either.
There seems to be a correla-
tion, maybe even a connection
between how fast we try to live
and the amount of stress we suf-
fer.
My remedy was to remember
that I didn't have to drive miles
and miles to get an answer; or
wait days, or take time to write a
letter.
A half-hour delay was not a
bad thing after all.
I think of all that was accom-
plished by the Lord and His apos-
tlos and thev waked evervwheve


John writes, but doesn't get
upset when he cant write it all, or
that some things will be left out,
or that part will be missing: he
doesn't seem "stressed" over it!
God gives us an example of
patience and perspective in the
Psalms; "For a thousand years in
your sight are like a day that has


gone by or a watch in the night...
teach us to number our days
aright, so that we may gain a heart
of wisdom (Psalm 90: 4,12)."
God doesn't seem rushed; and
he sure has a lot less stress than
the rest of us!

Here's how you can make a difference! "I,


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Many times we don't think that
what we do or what we say is im-
portant.
The truth is, they are very im-
portant!
Every day we affect other peo-
ple by what we do or don't do,
and by what we say or don't say.
They in turn affect other peo-
ple who affect other people who
affect other people.
It's called the ripple affect.
If I honk at you and upset your
day, you are more likely to honk
at someone else.
Likewise, if I smile at you and
wish you a good day, you are
more likely to smile at someone
else.
You never know how much
of a difference you might make,


or how far that difference might
carry.
A 19th century Sunday school
teacher led a Boston shoe clerk to
Christ.
The teachers' name you prob-
ably don't know: Kimball.
The name of the shoe clerk
who was converted you probably
have: Dwight Moody. Moody be-
came an evangelist and had a ma-
jor impact on a young preacher
by the name of Frederick Meyer.
Meyer began to preach on
college campuses, and led J. Wil-
bur Chapman to the Lord. Chap-
man became involved with the
Y.M.C.A. and arranged for a for-
mer baseball player, Billy Sunday
to come lead a revival.
The community leaders were
so excited that they scheduled an-
other revival and brought Morde-


cai Hamm to town to preach.
In that revival, a young man
named Billy Graham gave his life
to Christ.
Think of how many people
Billy Graham has touched -- and
it escalates from there!
What you do, what you say,
how you live, and even your very
presence does make a difference
in your life, in' the lives of your
family, and in the lives of those
around you.
It also makes a major differ-
ence in your worship community.
Did you ever stop to think that "C
H . C H" does not spell "church"
unless U R in it?
God's ministry in the church
needs you.
The difference between an ac-
tive church family and an inactive
one is you.


The difference between a
church which warmly welcomes
all visitors and a church which
seems indifferent is you.
The difference between a
church whose ministry is Chris-
tian outreach to all in need and
a church that is self-serving to .its
own needs is you.
You are wanted. You are need-
ed. You do make a difference.
Think about what good differ-
ence you might make today, and
put feet to the thought.
Remember that even little
things when given to a big God
accomplish much and make a
great difference.
Prayer is a practice that blesses.
Worship is a habit that refreshes.
Love is a gift that expresses.


Banks Reach Out To Customers with new logo


Cell pthob, : ind : '
PDAs provide tools
for better service

Imagine.this:
You've written checks for sev-
eral monthly bills, and you know
you scheduled your car insurance
payment for an automatic deduc-
tion today too.
You're held up on your way to
the bank to make a deposit and
you're afraid you're not going to
make it on time.
You grab your cell phone to
check your bank's website for the
closest ATM when a text message
comes in warning you that your
checking account is about to be
overdrawn.*
You quickly call in a transfer
from your savings account and
sigh with relief over the nasty
overdraft fee you just avoided.
That scenario is now com-
pletely possible - thanks to mo-
bile banking, a variety of new
services offered by many banks
via their customers' cell phones,
PDAs or other mobile devices.
Why mobile banking?
Benefits range from increased
convenience (you no longer have
to go the bank - or even your
computer) to increased efficiency
(since mobile service is widely
available you can capture dead
time at the doctor's office, in line,
or while commuting).
Services
With mobile banking you


-*car' iaccss yqur'accrunrits, check
balances, view statements and
transaction histories, even pay
bills, make transfers, or stop pay-
ments.
With alerts, you can also fol-
low account activity and receive
a message when your balance
drops to a minimum level that
you choose.
Banks are also using the ser-
vice to direct customers to nearby
branches and ATMs or to com-
municate about applications and
special offers. .
Soon, you may even be able
to scan and deposit checks using
the camera on your cell phone,
or use your phone like a credit or
debit card to make purchases.
Best of all, these services
aren't just available from the big-
ger banks.
Locally based community
banks are offering mobile bank-
ing too.
Most offer a combination of
three kinds of mobile banking:
Text Messaging - Mobile bank-
ing at its simplest, text messaging
is available to virtually all mobile
phone users, even those without
Internet service.
Ask your bank if you can re-
ceive alerts when payments are
due, balances reach preset lev-
els, or when checks or payments

Adding icons to your computer
I - -


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
This column is for those of us
who remember typewriters.
By that I mean you and I did
not grow up with computers
and probably don't have that in-
grained understanding of them
your grandchildren have.
But, we now use them in our
everyday lives for an ever-increas-
ing list of things which includes
bill paying, information gathering
and mailing.
Those who don't want to learn
are missing out on some great
stuff.
Every time you turn on your
computer, there it is, your desk-
top.
You spend a lot of time look-
ing at that desktop, so let's learn
how to manage it with your work
habits in mind.
If you are like me, you have ap-
plication shortcuts on your desk-
top.
This allows me to open a fa-
vorite application right away, in-
stead of going to the Start button
and Programs and then hunt for


the application name.
But how do those program
names get there in the first place?
Sometimes a desktop icon is
put there automatically when you
load a program.
But, if not, this is the way I get
the favored program icon just
where I want it.
Click on Start in the lower left
corner of your screen.
Scroll to Programs and then to
your favorite program.
Keep the name highlighted.
This is where you use the right
click.
Make sure the program name
is highlighted and then RIGHT
click with your mouse.
The list of commands that ap-
pears is usually referred to as a
"context menu."
I could write a whole column
on the power of the right click
and I will, soon.
For now, drag down to Create
Shortcut.
This will result in another title
of your program being added to
the list.
It will have a little (2) at the
end of the name. It will probably


appear at the end of the list. Click
and drag that name to your desk-
top.
You may also want to shorten
the name under the icon on the
desktop.
To do this, right click the new
icon and choose Rename.
You will see the cursor blink-
ing so you can modify the name
in whatever way you choose.
I always shorten the name.
You can click and drag these
icons anyplace you want on the
screen.
If you no longer use the pro-
gram or have something else on
the desktop you don't want there,
just right click on it and drag down
the list to delete.
'The box that pops up reminds
you that you are not deleting the
program itself, but you are delet-
ing the icon off the desktop.
If you have questions or sug-
gestions for column topics, please
e-mail dtimmons@newszap.com.

More Palm Beach residents eligible for health coverage


Coverage for low-
income residents
available
WEST PALM BEACH-By a
unanimous vote of the Board,
the Health Care District of Palm
Beach County approved a plan to
provide universal health coverage
for low-income residents who
earn less than 300 percent of the
Federal Poverty Level (FPL).
Vita Health is a shared-cost
program that provides afford-
able, quality health coverage to
residents who pay as little as $25
a month.
The remaining two-thirds of
the monthly premium are cov-
ered by the Health Care District.
In May of this year the Florida
State Legislature passed a health
coverage bill that raised the in-
come eligibility for Health Flex
programs, including Vita Health,
to 300 percent of the FPL.
The' decision by the Health
Care District Board, effective Oct.
1, increases the allowable income
levels to $31,200 annually for an
individual living in Palm Beach
County and $63,600 for a family
of four.
"This will help us cover more
residents who are not able to af-
ford health coverage when their
employer doesn't provide it," said
Dr. Stanley Pierce, Health Care
District Board member.
"There are a lot of people in
Palm Beach County who have no
health coverage. This is what the
Health Care District is all about,
improving access to healthcare
services," said Dr. Effie C. Grear,
Health Care District Board Vice-
Chair.
Vita Health is designed for
working individuals and families
in Palm Beach County, including
uninsured single parents, indi-
viduals whose employers do not
offer health benefits for full and


part-time employees and resi-
dents who are self-employed.
It's an affordable, quality health
coverage option for residents who
want the peace of mind of know-
ing that they can access health
care ,if they need it.
"Since the Health Care District
was established by the voters
nearly two decades ago, provid-
ing safety net health coverage for
Palm Beach County residents has
been one of our core missions.
Vita Health provides the public
an opportunity to purchase af-
fordable health coverage because
costs are shared by the Health
Care District.
This translates into more ben-
efits for less cost," says Jonathan
Satter, Health Care District Board
Chair. "By expanding the income
level for Vita Health, the Health
Care District continues to expand
the number of Palm Beach Coun-
ty residents who have access to
important health care services."
With a network of primary and
specialty physicians throughout
Palm Beach County, Vita Health
provides inpatient acute care,
emergency room services, outpa-
tient surgery, diagnostic services,
primary care services, physician
services, and prescription drugs.
The program improves health
through a focus on wellness, af-
fording access to primary and
preventive health care services
and providing members with a
medical home.
To be eligible, residents must
be between the ages of I and 65,
uninsured during the preceding
six months, and meet the income
criteria. The monthly premiums
range from $25 to $100 per indi-
vidual with co-payments as low
as $5 per office visit.
"Over the last year we have
partnered with the Economic
Council of Palm Beach County to
promote Vita Health. As a result,
the membership has more than
doubled," said Debi Gavras, Core


Operations Officer of the Health
Care District who. oversees its
Managed Care programs.
"By expanding the income
level, Vita Health will continue to
grow.
This will result in even more
residents with a medical home,
and in turn reduce the level of
uncompensated care, emergency
room overcrowding, and avoid
more expensive care due to de-
layed healthcare access."
Last month the National As-
sociation of Public Hospitals pre-
sented Vita Health with a special
recognition for "community en-
gagement" at the organization's
annual Safety Net awards cer-
emony.
In Palm Beach County, health
care providers absorb substantial
costs for uninsured patients who
present for care.
Vita Health members visit an
ER at a lower rate (12/1000 mem-
bers) compared to the Medicaid
HMO population in the county
(38/1000 members).
The program also encourages
timely preventive care.
A recent Florida health insur-
ance study found that half of the
uninsured either delay or simply
don't get needed medical care,
due to lack of coverage and cost.
Nine of the top ten reasons
Vita Health members visited their
primary care physicians were re-
lated to preventive care services.
"Providing solutions for the
uninsured is a complex challenge
and one that the Health Care Dis-
trict has made a priority for more
than fifteen years, said Health
Care District's Chief Executive Of-
ficer, Dwight D. Chenette, MBA,
MPH.
"The number of uninsured in
Palm Beach County is estimated
at more than 150,000. More than
half of the uninsured have been
without coverage for longer than
a year, and nearly one in five have
never had coverage. The primary


reason is cost. Vita Health pro-
vides an opportunity for residents
to obtain affordable health cover-
age."
The Health Care District funds
or administers health coverage
for SCHIP, Medicaid, and several
health initiatives designed for tar-
geted populations.
The Health Care District also


serves the community through a
maternity care program as well
as a nationally acclaimed Trauma
System, a network of pharmacies,
a rehabilitation and skilled-nurs-
ing center, and a dedicated nurse
in more than 170 public schools.
The District owns and operates
the county's only public hospital,
Glades General Hospital, and is


in the process of building a new
regional hospital, scheduled to
open in early 2010, that will serve
the Western Palm Beach County
communities bordering Lake
Okeechobee.

a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through
Friday. Please stop by during
those hours and put your filing for
tax exemptions behind you.

Don't loose your
Homestead
The Hon Kristina Kulpa, Hen-
dry County Property Appraiser
wants everyone to remember that
if you relinquished your Florida
Homesteaded property in 2007
and are applying for or have al-
ready applied for homestead in
2008 you may be eligible for the
new "portability exemption."
The same applies to your
property relinquished in 2008 and
you are now pre-filing for 2009 on
a new homestead.
If you qualify for portability it
will allow you to carry your cap
(Save Our Homes) with you to
your new Florida property.
If you are upsizing, meaning
the market value of your new
homestead property is greater
than your old homestead prop-
erty you will be able to carry your
"Save Our Homes" benefit for-
ward up to $500,000.
If you are downsizing, mean-
ing the market value of the new
homestead property is less than
the old homestead property you
will carry the SOH benefit forward
based on a percentage of old to
new homestead up to $500,000.
You can go to our website
www.hendrypa.org and down-
load the information for what you
need to bring with you to pre-file
for 2009 homestead plus an appli-
cation for portability.
If you have relinquished your
Florida homesteaded home in
2007 or 2008 but have not yet
purchased another home you can
also download a "Request For Re-
moval of Tax Exemption".
. If you have additional ques-
tions please call our office and my
staff will be able to assist you. In
Labelle call 863-675-5270 and in
Clewiston 863-983-3178.

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-
kee on November 22, and end at
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 only about 20
to 30 percent of the walkers man-
age to finish the 9 days.
For further information please


call Paul at 561-963-9906. -

Public pressure sought to combat fuel prices


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri- -
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son says more public pressure is
needed to ensure Congress and
the President quickly take action
to lower fuel prices.
Mr. Bronson wrote the Florida
congressional delegation in May
urging an investigation on all as-
pects of the oil industry, including
production, trading by investors
and speculators, and ultimately
the marketing and sale of fuel.
Mr. Bronson said at the time
that market speculation is driv-
ing oil costs instead of the normal
laws of supply and demand.


The outcry against this un-
checked speculation is growing.
Delta, American, Southwest, US
Air and a number of other airlines
have taken the unprecedented
step of writing a join letter to
all airline customers calling on
them to pull together to demand
congressional reforms in market
speculation.
"More and more people are
taking notice of the profiteering
that's occurring when speculators
buy and sell oil many times over
on paper without ever seeing a
drop of it," Mr. Bronson said.
"Consumers are shouldering
the financial burden because by
i�


the time the oil is actually de-
livered, they are paying record
breaking prices to fill their tanks."
Mr. Bronson, who serves as
the state's primary consumer
protection official as head of the
Department of Agriculture and
Consumer Services, says now is
the time for people to voice their
concerns, while congressional
hearings into the matter are un-
derway and before the summer
recess.
"Every aspect of our lives,
from the cost of food and clothes
.to utilities and transportation ex-
penses are impacted by fuel pric-
es," Mr. Bronson said.


"People need to realize that
our economic and national secu-
rity are being impacted by specu-
lators and other actions that im-
pact oil prices and they need to
demand relief."
Mr. Bronson said his depart-
ment is bombarded with calls
from consumers who are angry
about gas prices.
But he says they need to direct
their energy to Washington, D.C.
because their elected representa-
tives and the President hold the
key to solutions to the fuel crisis.


Florida Citrus Season Ends; Industry Looks Ahead


Farmers report suc-
cessful year in 2007-
2008

LAKELAND-Florida's 2007-
'2008 orange crop finished at 169.7
million boxes, according to the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) which today released its,
final citrus report of the season.
The crop represents a 32 per-
cent increase from the 2006-2007
season.
"This was a pretty good re-
bound year for the Florida citrus
industry coming. off the hurri-
canes," said Michael W. Sparks,
executive vice president/CEO of
Florida Citrus Mutual.
"Prices to growers were rea-
sonable and that's important. We


need higher prices to offset the
increased production costs asso-
ciated with pest and disease man-
agement and energy prices."
"The recent rains bode well for
next season," Sparks continued.
"However, the industry is facing
many challenges right now, most
prominently a disease called cit-
rus greening which has the po-
tential to devastate our crop. We
will continue to fight it through
research and best management
practices as we head into next
season."
The 169.7 million boxes are
made up of 83.5 million boxes of
Early-Mids and Navels and 86.2
million boxes of Valencias.
The Florida citrus industry saw
a decline in orange production
from 230 million boxes to 129


million boxes during the five-year
period between the 2001-2002
season and the 2006-2007 sea-
son.
This reduction was due in large
part to the effects of hurricanes,
development and pests and dis-
eases such as citrus canker and
greening.
The USDA issues its initial esti-
mate in October and then revises
it each month through the end of
the citrus season in July.
In today's final report, Florida
grapefruit increased from 26.5
million boxes to 26.6 million
boxes.
Tangelos remained unchanged
at 1.5 million boxes as did tariger-
ines at 5.5 million boxes.
The complete USDA crop fore-
cast is available from the Florida


Agriculture Statistics Service on-
line at http://www.nass.usda.gov/
Statistics_by_State/Florida/Publi-
cations/Citrus/cpfp.htm
Founded in 1948 and currently
representing nearly 8,000 grower
members, Florida Citrus Mutual is
the state's largest citrus growers'
organization.

Hendry County Sheriff office updates


Montura drug bust
As a result of an undercover
investigation into the sale and
distribution of illegal drugs in the
Montura area, Hendry County
Sheriff's Narcotic Investigators
arrested Davian Burgos, age 18
of 864 Woodland Blvd, Montura
Ranch Estates. Sheriff Ronnie Lee
said Burgos was charged with
Sale of Cocaine (3 counts) and
Trafficking in Cocaine. Bond was
set at $175,000.00.


Task force to patrol
high crime areas
In recent weeks, probably due
to the economy, there have been
a rash of thefts and burglaries on
the west side of Hendry County.
In an attempt to combat the in-
crease in property crime, Sheriff
Ronnie Lee created a task force
to patrol the high crime areas.
The first night of patrol, Depu-
ties arrested a man on a warrant


for drug offenses. They also re-
covered stolen items including a
television set, a chain saw, a shop
vacuum, a pressure washer, and
a stolen vehicle. Another arrest is
expected at the conclusion of the
investigation into the stolen items.
A missing juvenile was also lo-
cated and returned to his parents.
Sheriff Lee said these Deputies
will be patrolling all areas of the
county where we have seen an
increase in property crime.

weave their way out of crime.
The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office (PBSO), in conjunction
with the Police Athletic League
(PAL), held a grand opening at its
PAL Youth Center in Pahokee on
June 12.
Prior to the a series of exhibi-
tion sparring matches between
the boxers, which totaled about
25 from three teams - Pahokee
PAL, Belle Glade PAL and Palm
Beach Gardens Club 100, the box-
ing facility was dedicated by Gary
Dolphus, the pastor of the Paho-
kee PAL Boxing founder, Deputy
Sheriff Michael LeStrange.
"A building in this matter
should be seen as a monument,"
Pastor Dolphus told those in at-
tendance, which totaled to ap-
proximately 50 people. "The sher-
iff's office have all contributed to


this building and it takes a group
to accomplish this."
"This facility is dedicated for
supporting the biblical foufida-
tions of teaching character, excel-
lence and overcoming adversity,"
the pastor continued. "God has
chosen people like LeStrange and
others to have a heart's desire for
today's youth. They're dedicating
themselves to this cause and we
speak blessings to this place right
now."
Michael Jackson, the om-
budsman/liaison for Palm Beach
County Commissioner Jess San-
tamaria, provided an encouraging
and inspiring message to all of the
boxers in the PAL program.
"Boxing mirrors life," Jackson
said. "It requires dedication and
hard work.
"I don't look at boxing as just
slugging it out, but something that
will help build your character,"
Jackson continued. "Your great-
est strength is when someone can
depend on you. If you're depend-
able physically and spiritually, you
can't go wrong.
"Develop a motto to live by, it
will keep you honest," Jackson
concluded in his message to the
youth.
Once the dedication ceremony
was finished, then the sparring
matches took place for the pub-

lic to see. And the- sheriff's office
treated everyone in attendance to
a hearty lunch, which included
pizza, chicken and a variety of
drinks.

area kids to date, according to Ty-
rone Campbell, a volunteer coach
for the team.
The former National Golden
Gloves winner, who later tried out
for the 1992 Summer Olympics
in Barcelona, Spain, was at one
point in the same position as his
boxers. The Pahokee standout
went on to play college football
for the Arkansas Razorbacks, dis-
covered boxing as another pas-
sion of his.
For Campbell, what actually
kept him in top physical shape
was the fact that he oftentimes
used boxing as an outlet. It not
only kept him focused on earning
a college degree, but it ultimately
fueled his fire to compete and lat-.
er coach in the boxing realm.
Campbell would like to use his
expertise to help the boxers be-
come successful in the future.
"We're trying to build champi-
ons in the ring, as well as in life,"
Campbell said.
According to Deputy LeS-
trange, the city's boxing program
took about a year to get off the
ground. It was a collaborative ef-
fort between the city of Pahokee,
Reinaldo Alonso, the lieutenant/
commander of District 12 and
Captain Jeff Lindskoog of the PB-
SO-Community Services Division.
The boxing equipment, which
includes an array of boxing gloves
and a boxing ring, cost .the sher-
iff's office about $20,000 to pur-
chase. It must be noted that the
equipment and the facility as a.


something that the area's citizens
can be proud of.
The boxing program, Deputy
LeStrange said, was funded by
the sheriff's office drug services
and comes at no cost to the city's
taxpayers.
"The PAL youth boxing pro-
gram is a crime prevention tool,"
Deputy LeStrange said. "We use
boxing as a way to get the kids
off the streets and a way from
anti-social criminal activity, such
as joining gangs and using illegal
drugs."
The boxers in attendance, who
hail from the Glades area and the
coast, will be competing in Pa-
hokee's first-ever boxing tourna-
ment, to be held on Saturday, July
19 beginning at 3 p.m. in the city's
recreational center gymnasium.
Also, the young men are pre-
paring daily for the state and
national PAL Boxing Champion-
ships, as well as the state's annual
Silver Gloves Boxing Champion-
ships, which will convene later
this year.
"This event gave the kids the
opportunity to interact with oth-
er kids from different gyms and
maintain a positive mindset," said
Afshin Motedaeiny, the boxing
coach for the Palm Beach Gar-
dens-based Club 100 PAL boxing
team. "Also, it is important for the
kids to know that the- community
representatives support this pro-
gram. It truly thank Pahokee PAL
for inviting us to be at this event."

Marijuana grow houses

busted in montura
Friday night July 11, the Hen-
dry County Sheriff's Narcotic In-
vestigators executed search war-
rants on three mobile homes in
Montura located on South Willow
and South Palm Streets. All three
houses were being used for the
purpose of growing marijuana.
Each house was equipped with
sophisticated irrigation systems,
fertilizer tanks, industrial grow
lights, and other equipment nor-
mally used in the cultivation of
marijuana. Deputies seized 300
marijuana plants with a street val-
ue of over one quarter million at
maturity. Sheriff Ronnie Lee said
like most the their Grow Houses
we have busted, the owner of
these three homes lives outside
Hendry County. Deputies are at-
temping to locate the owner and
arrests are forthcoming.

Rise in theft crimes
At 3:07 a.m. Thursday July
10th, Ashley and Sons Salvage,
located on State Road 29 south of
LaBelle, was the victim of an at-
tempted theft. Deputies arrived
on the scene and were informed
by the owner, Ashley George, that
he observed three black males
in the process of stealing about
$2,500.00 worth of copper wire.
When he confronted the men,
two fled the scene on foot. Mr.
George had a gun and ordered


the third man to get down on the
ground. The man grabbed the
gun and succeeded in taking it
from Mr. George. He ran toward
State Road 29, firing two shots at
Mr. George, missing with both
shots. Deputies were unable to
locate any of the men and set up a
perimeter. Sheriff Ronnie Lee said
the Lee County Sheriff's Office
sent two K-9 Deputies and a he-
licopter to assist with the search.
The helicopter is equipped with
an instrument capable of locat-
ing hot spots on the ground.
Shortly after arriving in the area,
the pilot located a hot spot near
the salvage company. Deputies
yelled for the man to surrender
and after receiving no response, a
police dog was released Within
moments after releasing the dog,
Officers heard a man screaming.
As it turned out, the dog had bit-
ten the suspect and would not let
go until the K-9 Deputy gave com-
mand. Tommy Young, age 42,
who gave an address of 12 War-
ren Street Brentwood, NY. was ar-
rested. Young was charged with
Aggravated Assault, Armed Tres-
passing, Robbery, and Resisting
an Officer. Sheriff Lee said due
to the working relationship we
have with surrounding Law En-
forcement Agencies, Young was
located and arrested within ap-
proximately one hour after com-
mitting the crime. The investiga-
tion continues with more arrests
expected.

Local 4-H Youth participate in State Legislature


More than two hundred 4-H
youth from across the state trav-
eled to Tallahassee June 23 - July

Jessica Bechtel, Rachael Boy,
Josie Boykin, Steffanie Cain, Rob-
ert Ford, Monica Ledesma, Chris-
topher Norwood, Jacinda Sheltra,
Britney Woosley, and Elesa Zim-
merly were among the Hendry
County Leadership/Citizenship
4-H Club members who attended
Florida 4-H Legislature.
These club members began
preparing for the week long event
in February.
With both a House and a Sen-
ate in session, teen legislators,
lobbyists and reporters will de-
bate a variety of issues and learn
how the government works.
The Florida 4-H Legislature
will conduct business with an
acting governor, lieutenant gover-
nor and cabinet. Veteran Hendry


County members play the role
of Legislators while the lirst year
members learn about lobbying.
All of the members did an ex-
cellent job debating the issues.
There were impressive argu-
ments both for and against many
proposed bills. Josie Boykin, Stef-
fanie Cain, Monica Ledesma, Brit-
ney Woosley and Elesa Zimmerly
acted as lobbyists.
Josie Boykin and Elesa Zim-
merly were nominated for the
prestigious Chris Allen Award.
Jessica Bechtel and Rachael Boy
acted as Senators. Jessica Bechtel
also acted as the Speaker of the
Senate during the lobbyist ses-
sion. Robert Ford, Christopher
Norwood and- Jacinda Sheltra
acted as Representatives.
Christopher Norwood was
nominated for the prestigious
Chris Allen Award.
Nominations for the Chris
Allen Award are based on the
knowledge of the individual as a


Representative, Senator, Lobbyist,
or a Reporter.

Program is an excellent oppor-
tunity for youth ages 14 to 18 as

Rick Murphy announces his candidacy for county superintendent job


Rick Murphy, candidate for Su-
perintendent of Hendry County
Schools, would like to take this
opportunity to introduce himself
to you.
He is a lifelong resident of
Hendry County who graduated
from Clewiston High School.
He is the 12th child of Susie
Mae Wade, born and raised in
Hooker's Point.
He has two children, Christina
Murphy and Crystal Murphy Cen-
teno, who are both graduates of
Clewiston High School.
Christina is a student at F.S.U.,
waitress, celebrity hostess and a
professional model.
She is a past contestant on
America's Next top Model Cycle
4 and still pursuing her career in
modeling.
Crystal is Cosmetologist, moth-
er of two (Jalen, 7 and Nadia, 3)
with plans to become a registered
nurse or teacher.
After working in Business
Management for over 20 years
and while serving as District 1
School Board member for the last
14 years, he decided to continue
- his education at night graduating
from Palm Beach Community
College and Palm Beach Atlantic
University.
After serving on the School
Board he transitioned into teach-
ing and administration; contin-
ued his education at other col-
leges and began teaching in Palm
Beach County and in Highlands


Rick Murphy.


Submitted to INI


County middle grades 6-8th.
He has taught in Highlands
for the last three years while also
working in administrative duties.
His reason for teaching in other
counties is that Florida Law says
while he serves on the School
Board he can't teach in the same
system.
Hendry and Highlands coun-
ties are also part of a joint effort
called the Heartland Educational
Consortium which provides many
different services for schools,
teachers, administration and stu-
dents.
He feels this arrangement
has allowed him to oversee the
school system, provide addition-
al resources and get hands-on
teaching and administration ex-
perience to better serve our stu-


dents. For the last 14 years he said
he proudly served the students,
parents, grandparents, employ-
ees, residents and taxpayers of
the entire county to the best of his
ability.
He said, "It has been an honor
and privilege to be elected and
serve as your elected official.
In order to run and continue to
serve in a different capacity as
your elected Superintendent of
Schools I had to resign by law
as your School Board Member.
After serving for 14 years that
was a very difficult decision but
was the sacrifice I had to make
for my commitment to serve the
residents of our county. We all
have different goals for our kids
and I would like to share some
my ideas. To provide continued
academic achievement for all stu-
dents regardless of their ability or
limitations."
As a career tech teacher he
believes we need to provide voca-
tional programs as an option for
students' success.
The global economy is con-
stantly changing which will also
require many different job skills
to compete in the workplace.
Those students who are strug-
gling with academic success
could excel in school by having
vocational programs while learn-
ing valuable skills to succeed.
Vocational programs would also
improve student dropout.
He would also like to improve


early intervention programs for
elementary students to be more
successful; to provide additional
opportunities in areas of fine
and performing arts while pro-
moting recognition for academic
achievements, cultural arts and
athletic accomplishments for all
students' endeavors; work coop-
eratively with Edison College and
other institutions for students and
adult education needs; promote
and provide continuing profes-
sional training opportunities that
support professional growth for
all employees.
He hopes to work closely with
school personnel and other gov-
ernmental agencies for monitor-
ing the continuing protection
and safety of all students from
the threat of gang, bullying and
other unacceptable behavior and
continue to work with parents,
transportation personnel and ad-
ministration to monitor student
safety while transporting over
3,500 students daily which are
our most precious cargo.
Mr. Murphy said he wants
to improve and maintain neat
school buildings while construct-
ing additional educational facili-
ties needed to meet anticipated
growth with special facilities fund-
ing when provided by the State
Legislature and assure immedi-
ate communication between the
parent, school, community and
School Board on critical issues.
Mr. Murphy is a member of the


Florida School Board Association
and Florida Small School District
Council Consortium Board of Di-
rectors.
He has served on the Hendry
County Property Value Adjust-
ment Board as a School Board
representative presiding over
property value adjustment peti-
tion hearings.
He is a member of the Men's
Christian Gathering of LaBelle
and The Evangel Assembly of
God in Clewiston; a member of
the Clewiston FFA Alumni and
has supported The LaBelle Live-
stock and Ag Show along with the
Hendry County 4-H and Livestock
Show.
He said he also supports local
organizations including the Ca-
loosa Humane Society and youth
organizations.
His past community involve-
ment has been as a Board Member
of the American Cancer Board of
Hendry County past member of
the City of Clewiston Community
Development Block Grant Com-
mittee, LaBelle Swamp Cabbage
Festival Committee, LaBelle July
4th Committee, Clewiston Sugar
Festival Committee, Past Presi-
dent of the Clewiston Kiwanis,
Clewiston Jaycees, Past President
of The Florida Jaycees District 112
and a past member of the Clewis-
ton Elks Lodge.
He coached the Clewiston
Cougars Pop Warner Football and
Jaycee Tee Ball League and been


involved with many youth organi-
zations in the past.
He has volunteered for the
Hendry County Students with Dis-
abilities annual Christmas Party
and always supported my com-
munity and county in many ways
including lobbying in Washington
against NAFTA and many other
legislative movements that have a
negative effect on our community
and schools.
I have also represented this
county in The Florida Legislature
on important educational issues
and funding for our school sys-
tem..
"I believe the success of our
educational system is our chil-
dren, parents, teachers, school
leadership, non instructional em-
ployees, volunteers, School Board
and residents of Hendry County
which I greatly appreciate. I have
worked in business management
for over 25 years. I have served as
your elective School Board Mem-
ber for the last 14 years and rep-
resented our county the on key
issues in the Florida Legislature. I
am currently a classroom teacher
with administrative experience
that can relate to current issues
of today's educational system. I.
was raised on faith along with the
ways of love and gentle kindness
of a small town Southern man. I
believe that our greatest contribu-
tions are the ones that we leave
behind not what we take with
us."


Father son golf trip and finding the perfect college


By Daniel Shube
So, the Florida Swing on the
PGA TOUR was over months
ago. I wanted to do my own
Florida Swing. Here's the deal.
My son Spencer is ready to ap-
ply to colleges. -The cost of go-
ing out-of-state is exorbitant. So,
we're taking the show on the
road.
As a golf and travel writer,
whenever possible, I'm going to
document the trip (and sneak in
a road of,golf!). Unfortunately,
our first stop at Orlando and
the University of Central Florida
(UCF) was cut short, so my golf
plans were foiled. Besides, I visit
Orlando often and always write
about it.
After Orlando, we headed
west to Tampa to check out the
University of South Florida.


Our base of operations was
the Quorum Hotel (www.Qu.o-
rumTampa.com or (877) 478-
6786) located in the Westshore
district. The location is very con-
venient to the airport and down-
town. The hotel recently.finished
a $3.5 million renovation. The
room was quite comfortable.
The hotel is a mid-sized prop-
erty - big enough to have all the
amenities you need, yet small
enough to be treated like family.
Spencer enjoyed working out
in the state-of-the-art fitness cen-
ter. We all enjoyed the outdoor
pool and spa. Another unexpect-
ed plus was the Blue Water Grill.
This lobby restaurant served
breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks
and drinks. The prices were
moderate, the quality, presen-
tation and service were excep-


tional. Recently added was the Spencer preferred checking


outdoor patio dining area. Large,
flat-screen televisions were ev-
erywhere. Perfect as we viewed
the Euro Cup soccer finals.
One night we took a trip
downtown to the St. Pete Times
Forum (www.sptimesforum.
corn or (813) 301-2500) to see
the XFC-MMA Spectacular. Spen-
cer loves to watch these fight-
ers go at it. This is a relatively
new league that is based at this
arena. In addition, The Forum is
home to the NHL's Lightening,
the Storm (arena football), con-
certs and more. This is the kind
of place a college student would
frequent often!
For more nightlife, we paid
a visit to Ybor City (www.ybor.
org). While I was interested
in the cigar industry history,


out all the clubs. Another fun
nightspot we visited was Skip-
per's Smokehouse (www.skip-
perssmokehouse.com). As the
name indicates, you will find
some excellent smoked Florida
fare and several gator options.
They also have excellent local
and big-name music.
Did I mention golf? Spencer
is saving golf for his retirement
(he actually prefers the mixed
martial arts or wrestling - while
to me, golf is a physical sport!).
I did sneak off to play the TPC
Tampa Bay (www.tpctampabay.
com or (813) PLAY-TPC).
I always like to play courses
that the professionals play. The
Champions TOUR plays the Out-
back Steakhouse Pro-Am at the


TPC Tampa Bay.
As I most often play in South-
east Florida, the first thing I notice
is the course is not flat! It is quite
beautiful, plenty of varied trees,
some water, just enough sand.
There is also plenty of wildlife.
While I was waiting to hit a tee
shot, a family of wild turkeys ran
across the fairway. The course
has the designation of an Audu-
bon Cooperative Sanctuary.
In spite of my personal put-
ting woes, I still appreciate nice
greens. While the greens were
recently aerified, I was assured
that they would soon be stimp-
ing at a speed 10. What I liked
were the interesting designs of
the greens. Some were small, re-
quiring very accurate approach
shots. Others were larger, unique
shaped, still requiring precise


irons.
The TPC Tampa Bay was dif-
ficult enough to present a chal-
lenge, yet fair and enjoyable!
If you want help with a trip
to the Tampa Bay area enlist the
help of Tampa Bay and Compa-
ny (www.visittampabay.com or
(800) 44-TAMPA).
I almost forgot that we came
to Tampa to visit USF! I hap-
pened to love the campus. Spen-
cer is not sure if he preferred
UCF or USF. Next stop on my
Florida Swing? Tallahassee and
Florida State University (FSU).
Stay tuned!

Troubled homeowners should seek free legal assistance


TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son is encouraging homeowners
threatened with foreclosure or
fearful that their lending institu-
tion may foreclose on their prop-
erty to contact the Florida Bar
Association to obtain free legal
assistance.
According to Florida Legal


Services Inc., 77,000 state hom-
eowners are in foreclosure, mak-
ing Florida second in the nation
only to California in the number
of homes in that status.
And many others are at least
30 days past due on their mort-
gage payment, which places
them at risk of having their loans
foreclosed. Florida Legal Services
and the Florida Bar Association


have partnered in establishing a
toll-free hotline -- 1-866-607-2187
-- that consumers can call to an-
swer a few initial questions about
their situation to ensure accurate
placement with a free attorney.
The attorney will then negoti-
ate with the lender on behalf of
the client to keep the home from
being foreclosed.
"I applaud Florida Legal Ser-


vices and the Florida Bar for offer-
ing this public service," Commis-
ssioner Bronson said.
"Home ownership remains a
foundation of our society, leading
to the stability of families and con-
tributing significantly to our local,
state and national economy, and
any effort that helps families keep
their homes in this uncertain
economy is beneficial."


Manatee deaths over emphasize threats


More than 10,000 Florida at- services in the program, accord-
ing to Florida Legal Services Inc.
torneys have volunteered their


Woman plays piano for
14 straight hours after using
Thera-Gesic�
BEXAR COUNTY- After applying Thera-Gesic�
to her arthritic hands, Mdry Ann W. played piano
jazz music for 14 straight hours. When asked
why she played so long, especially since she never
took lessons nor played piano before, she painless-
ly replied, "None of your dang business!"
Go painlessly with Therm-Gesicd


Between Friday July 4th
and Monday July 7th, 2008, six
manatees were recovered and
confirmed to have died from
watercraft collisions throughout
Florida.
The manatees were recovered
in Brevard, Citrus, Duval, Pinellas,
and Sarasota counties, with two
of the watercraft mortalities oc-
curring in Pinellas County.
Another manatee carcass re-
covered on July 7, was identified
at necropsy as Dundee, a mana-
tee being tracked by the Manatee
Rehabilitation Partnership (MRP).
Dundee was born in captivity
in 1986 and was first released into


the.wild in 2006.
At necropsy, a large tangle of
monofilament fishing line, plastic,
a lead weight, and a metal swivel
were found in Dundee's small in-
testine.
This material caused a for-
mational change in the small in-
testine, which then resulted in a
blockage that ultimately caused
his death.
Holidays are not the only dan-
gerous times for manatees.
On June 29, a manatee mother
and her calf were rescued in Crys-
tal River after the mother suffered
a watercraft strike.
In addition to these document-


ed cases of injury or death, most
living manatees bear scars from
non-lethal boat strikes.
Through July 7, 54 watercraft
deaths and 198 total manatee
deaths were reported in Florida,
which are near-record totals.
These statistics emphasize the
threats faced by Florida's mana-
tees and provide an opportunity
to remind our state's residents
and visitors to practice responsi-
ble boating and fishing practices
in order to keep our waters safe
for manatees, other wildlife, and
ourselves.
. "People must remember that
manatee mortality statistics re-


flect the life and death of living
creatures," said Dr. Katie Tripp,
Save the Manatee Club's Director
of Science and Conservation.
We should never forget that
manatees suffer as a result of hu-
man carelessness.
As a caring species ourselves,
we should find such suffering un-
acceptable."

website at http://www.savethe-
manatee.org/boatertips.htm to

Retirees find alternative to going back to work


After leaving the rat race to en-
joy retirement, many retirees find
that their financial demands are
greater than expected.
Going back to work may seem
like the only solution, however,
an increasing number of retirees
are opting to take out a reverse
mortgage.
According to a report by the
Employee Benefit Research Insti-
tute, 37 percent of retirees report
having to go back to work after
retirement.
This is up from 27 percent in
2006.
Finances were identified as
one of the primary reasons.
When you factor in retirees
unable to go back to work due to
a health-related problem or car-
ing for a spouse, the percentage
is much higher.
For some retirees, going back
to work is more a matter of want-
ing to stay active and productive.
For others, it is a financial ne-
cessity. In either case, there are
financial consequences to con-
sider:
It can decrease the benefit
amount from Social Security for
those who have begun receiving
Social Security and have not yet

(65 to 67, depending on when
you were born).
There is no change in the ben-
efit amount from Social Security
for those who have reached "full
retirement age."
It is a good idea to check with
the Social Security Administra-
tion before deciding to go back
to work.
They provide an online benefit
calculator and useful information
on their website www.socialse-
curity.gov/retire2/whileworking.
htm.
You can also reach them at
800-772-1213.
Other important consider-
ations include a possible increase
in your tax obligation and work-
related expenses.
Social Security benefits re-
ceived at any age become partial-
ly taxable once your income ex-
ceeds a certain level (the specific
amount is adjusted annually).


Also, you have the expense of
commuting to and from work.
With the rising cost in gas pric-
es, this may make going back to
work cost-prohibitive.
An alternative for many retir-
ees faced with having to go back
to work is to take out a reverse
mortgage, which enables hom-
eowners 62 and older to convert
the equity in their home into a
lump-sum payment, monthly in-
come, a line of credit, or a com-
bination.
No repayment is required for
as long as you occupy your home
as your primary residence.
"Funds from the reverse mort-
gage do not affect Social Secu-
rity or Medicare benefits," Steven
Brooks, Senior Loan Officer at
First Liberty Mortgage said.
"Our senior customers have
been able to continue to enjoy
their retirement with the peace
of mind of knowing they will not
outlive their retirement income."


(First Liberty Mortgage pro-
vides you with a free reverse
mortgage informational package
and confidential estimate by call-
ing them toll-free at 800-642-3188
or by visiting www.mytreasure-
coastloan.com.)
The -money from the reverse
mortgage is tax-free because it is
not considered income.
As a retirement tool, the re-
verse mortgage is growing in
popularity.
The Department of Housing
and Urban Development (HUD)
reports that 9,112 reverse mort-
gages were endorsed in May
2008.
This brings the year-to-date
total to 73,875, a 3.3 percent in-
crease over 2007.
For retirees who are not able,
or do not enjoy the prospect of
having to go back to work, the
reverse mortgage may just be the
answer.

cessing mill, which is worth ap-
proximately $300 million and ac-
counts for many of the 1,700 jobs
at the sugar company.
The district said that it needs
only 120,000 acres of the land in
question, which will primarily
be used in efforts to restore the


Everglades. What will happen to
the rest of the land and the sugar
company's assets is unknown at
this time, however.
"It's very important that the
county commissioners are mov-
ing forward with an advocate to
speak for us," said Mali Cham-
ness, the mayor of Clewiston.
"The county made a critical deci-
sion to safeguard the economic
future of Hendry County."
"It was necessary to hire a


legal counsel as we go through
the next few weeks in the whole
process of the sugar buyout," the
Clewiston mayor continued. "The
community's voices need to be.
heard by our governor. He's the
one with the power to ensure
there is a viable economical plan
through OTTER"
OTTEP stands for the Office
of Tourism, Trade and Economic
Development.
The framework of the contract,


which is expected to be finalized
in less than 75 days, calls for a six-
year transition plan, which effec-
tively means that U.S. Sugar will
close all of its operations in 2014.
"All of us in local government
mirror each other as to what we
need to do for our constituents
and our community," said Janet
Taylor, the chairperson of the,
county commission and represen-
tative for District 1 (Clewiston and
Harlem), "We are all on board to


make sure that our communities
are sustained and even improved.
The only was this could happen is
if all of us work together and get
our voices heard by the state."
The next meeting regarding
the U.S. Sugar land deal will be
on Monday, July 21 at 10 a.m. in
the John Boy Auditorium. Rep-
reseritatives from The Florida
Heartland Rural and Economic
Development Initiative (FHREDI),
OTTEP, the water district, the sug-


ar company and local leaders will
be among those in attendance.
"It's important for the county's
residents to come to this upcom-
ing meeting with ideas to voice
their thoughts for economic de-
velopment and growth," Mayor
Chamness said. "We hope every-
one who can will attend."

ating Lakes Hickpochee, Bonnet,
Flirt and Lettuce, and creating a
two-part lake called "Lake La-
RBlle "


These lakes would actually be
reservoirs, but would use no con-
crete lining. He said they would be
less expensive than conventional
reservoirs like the C-43 Reservoir
planned for the old Berry property
west of LaBelle and would have
the added benefit of providing a

better quality of life for all variet-
ies of residents.
He visualizes Lake LaBelle as
offering opportunities for camp-
ing, restaurant/lodges, retail
business and concessions. There
would be high sections and
low sections that would not ac-
commodate water all year. The
depth would fluctuate naturally
although he estimates it would
average about 6 feet in depth.
. There would be some natural
seepage. The lower lake (closer
to river) would hold water most
of the year while the upper lake
would be dry or marshy part of
the year.
With the stoppage of work on
SFWMD reservoir projects and the
sugar deal, Mr. Michael feels this
is a good time to rethink retooling
this entire area as it fits into the
big picture and in tune with how
residents see their future.
The C-43 Reservoir is a single
use structure like the Herbert
Hoover Dike surrounding Lake
Okeechobee, Mr. Michael point-
ed out, and includes a five-story
pump facility and would be sur-
rounded by ditches.
Mr. Michael told the group his
plan involves ecosystem restora-

tion and storm water manage-
ment without neglecting other
needs like agriculture, parks and
eco-tourism. It incorporates both
ecology and the economy.
The plan extends south of the
lake where he would put in a se-
ries of waterways and small lakes


surrounding the current cities of
Clewiston. and Belle Glade. His
idea is to convert some of the ag-
ricultural jobs to tourism-related
work, but agriculture would also
continue in the area.
Keith Richter, candidate for
House District 72 (which em-


compasses DeSoto County and
parts of Charlotte and Lee) was
on hand at the meeting, testify-
ing to the interest in what hap-
pens to the Caloosahatchee, Lake
Okeechobee and the sugar deal
by west coast dwellers.
Mr. Michael told the group
that the community needs to
talk about options and break the
current mold of thinking, letting
SFWMD and the Department of
Environmental Protection know
What locals want.
Riverwatch's John Capece
agreed that we need to invest in
our natural systems and need to
parallel them with creative agri-
cultural systems. He is in favor of
paying farmers to store water on
their land.
He added that we need to
keep events in the larger world in
mind because they also have a lo-
cal effect.
Agriculture fills the basic need
of feeding people and cannot be
ignored or shoved off to other ar-
eas that might cause worse prob-
lems.

Ms. Wilson said a couple told her,
"We don'f want to eath too much
here, because we're going to
Beef O'Brady's to help the foun-
dation."
The hospital foundation board
is set up to raise funds for spe-
cial projects at the hospital. The
money doesn't go toward paying
salaries, or to fund essential ser-
vices there, but to enhance the


hospital.
The foundation focuses most-
ly on fundraising efforts, like this
one, and 100 percent of the funds
acquired by it are invested back
into the hospital.
In the past year, hospital em-
ployees started pitching in, donat-
ing a part of their paycheck to the
foundation.
The money has gone on to pay
for a redecoration, with newly
painted rooms, atomic clocks in-
stalled throughout the facility, ar-
tificial flower decorations -- just a
general attention to aesthetics.


Future programs promise to
be even more substantive, and
the foundation has its eyes set on
expanding the hospital to include
a new surgery suit, emergency
room and laboratory.
"I've gone on Tuesdays and
we see a lot of people saying,
'We came today just to give to the
foundation,'" said Ms. Wilson.
"It's touching."

Egley has eyes set on County Superintendent


Robert Egley was born and
raised in Clewiston. He graduated
from Clewiston High School in
1974. After earning his AA degree,
Egley transferred to the University
of Florida. During his tenure at the
University of Florida, he played
football for the Florida Gators as
a walk-on, and coached football
and baseball at Gainesville High
School. Upon graduating from the
University of Florida with his BS
degree, he taught Driver's Educa-
tion and Science at New Smyrna
Beach Senior High School and
coached football, baseball and
track.
After several years at the
high school level, Egley's ca-
reer path took him to a level he
never dreamed was possible. He


coached at the college and pro-
fessional levels for six years. His
coaching resume included stops
at Clemson University, the Arizona
Wranglers and the Chicago Blitz of
the United States Football League
(USFL), the Atlanta Falcons of the
National Football League (NFL)
and Mississippi State University
(MSU). Egley earned his Masters
Degree in Educational Leader-
ship with a minor in Curriculum
and Instruction while'coaching at
MSU.
After being fired four times in
six years as a college and pro-
fessional coach, he decided to
return to his original "calling" as
a public school educator. Egley
began to re-build his career as a
professional educator by serv-


ing as an assistant principal at
the high school and elementary
school level for eight years. He
then returned to Mississippi State
University where he earned his
Doctorate in Educational Leader-
ship with a minor in Curriculum
and Instruction. During his ten-
ure in Mississippi, Egley served
as a principal at the elementary,
middle and high school levels for
seven more years.
In 2001, Egley was lured away
from the K-12 arena to become an
assistant professor in the Educa-
tional Leadership and Curriculum
Studies Department at the Univer-
sity of South Florida St. Petersburg
(USFSP). Egley taught undergrad-
uate and graduate courses in cur-
riculum and instruction as well as


numerous educational leadership
courses for graduate students. He
served as the interim Chair of the
Department and served orfa num-
ber of university level commit-
tees. During his tenure at USFSP,
he published 21 research articles,
co-authored a scholarly book on
dealing with marginal employees
and presented his research at 27
conferences at the state, national
and international levels.
In 2005, Egley returned to
Hendry County and became prin-
cipal at Clewiston High School
(CHS). He has made many posi-
tive changes at the school dur-
ing this period. Oneof his most
memorial accomplishments has
been the academic improvement
of the students. Over a three-year


period, the students, teachers and
administration have seen FCAT
scores improve. This year CHS
earned the highest points ever re-
corded as measured by the FCAT.
Egley believes he has the at-
titude, experience, knowledge
and skills and to lead our schools.
He said he understands that 'edu-
cational leaders must earn the
trust of the students, parents and
teachers. This trust leads to great-
er commitment. When students,
parents and teachers have high
levels of trust and commitment,
continuous improvements can be
achieved, system-wide.
Robert Egley needs your sup-
port. More importantly, Egley is
asking you for your vote.
