Man arrested for attempted murder


Suspect shoots
several times at
victim, misses
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON A longtime
family feud threatened to turn
deadly over the Labor Day holi-
day weekend.
Deputies with the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office arrested a
man in connection with a shoot-
ing on Friday, charging him with
attempted murder. Law enforce-
ment officials say that the shoot-


ing has a detailed history of rival-
ry between two warring families.
The dispute resulted in a death
last year, when the brother of the
victim of this latest shooting was
gunned down following an argu-
ment.
Other mysterious incidents,
including the victim's trailer be-
ing destroyed in a fire, keep
plaguing the family. Deputies
were called to Twin Lakes Mo-
bile Home Park when a witness
heard gunshots being fired and
spotted two males running from
the area of the shooting, Lot 4, to
a home on Cypress Circle, where
one of the suspect's parents live.


Police were told the suspects
were wearing black T-shirts and
long blue jean shorts.
When deputies responded,
the victim of the shooting, Juan
Rico, 23, showed up to speak to
them about the shooting.
According to him, he was
mowing the grass at the lot
where his burnt trailer is located
and, just as he was finished and
was loading his mower on the
back of his truck, three suspects
approached him. He identified
them as Gabriel Trevino, Alexan-
der Bonilla and Joshua Valdez.

Short discharges

possibility ,
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- After rising
two feet in just one week, the
lake continues its rapid advance
higher.
On Wednesday, jhe South
Florida \alter Management Dis-
trict reported the lake level to be
at 14.68 feet, a significant, and
quick turnaround from the 11-
feet and below levels that had
marked Lake Okeechobee for
the past two years.
.It was just July of last.year
that the lake experienced its all-
time record lo%\ of just 8 82 feet,

percent increase since that pe-
*riod.
A large reason for that strange
.stimulus was the result of Tropi-
cal.Storm Fay making its waN
through the area. The forceful
winds ushered plenty of rain --
rain which continued pouring
into the lake and through feeder
estuaries to the north.,
At least one local business
that depends on the health of the
lake, the local resort and marina,

New weir protects flow-way


By Katrina Elsken
INI Florida
A record drought followed by
a storm that brought record wa-
terfall is testing the limits of the
South Florida Water Management
District's flood control structures.
One structure was completed
just in time to prevent what could
have been a regional disaster.
A new weir protecting the
S-65E lock and spillway on the
Kissimmee River reached "sub-
stantial completion" on Aug. 3,
less than two weeks before Tropi-
cal Storm Fay flooded the area
with record rainfall.
The weir solved a problem
created by the storms of 2004
and 2005. The S-65E is the last
lock on the Kissimmee. River
before it reaches Lake Okeecho-
bee. Due to the hurricanes, the
large volume of water passing
through the structure scoured the
river bottom, leaving a hole 20
feet deep and 200 feet wide. Left
unchecked, the condition could
have caused the water control
structure to collapse, which in
turn would have threatened the
stability of the water control struc-
tures upriver in turn.
Based on records that go back'
to 1932, 2006 and 2007 were
the driest years on record. The
records show.that in that same
time frame, Tropical Storm Fay
dumped the most water on the
area in a one week period.
Low water south of the S-65E
structure and record rainfall
drairiing south could have spelled
disaster..
But the new weir worked ex-
actly as it was designed, maintain-
ing a constant water level south


Okeechobee News/Katrina Elsken
The new weir south of S-65E lock and flow-way keeps the
water on the south side of the water control structure high
enough to prevent erosion of the river bottom and protect the
stability of the structure.


of the water control structure and
helping to absorb some of the en-
ergy of the rushing floodwater.
"During the 2004 and 2005 hur-
ricane season, we saw the highest
flow ever at this structure, and we
saw damage here with a scour
hole," said George Home, Deputy
Executive Director of Operation
and Maintenance. "With the lake
being so low, we were concerned
about future storms. The purpose
of the weir structure is to be able
to safely maximize the discharges
downstream.
"Without the structure, we
could only have opened the S-65E
a minimal six inches," he said.
"With the weir, we can safely
open it six feet."
This means they can safely
move water down the Kissimmee
River and into Lake Okeechobee
much faster. He said on Friday,
the flow was about 21,000 cubic
feet of water per second -- that's
about 164,000 gallons of water a
second. Without the new struc-


ture, had they been forced to
only allow minimal water out, the
massive upstream flooding could
have been catastrophic for those
in the Kissimmee River Valley.
Had they opened the S-65E
flood control structure to maxi-
mum capacity without the new
weir, the pressure of the water
could have collapsed the struc-
ture and in turn caused a domino
effect on other flood control struc-
tures on the river.
"If the structures fail, the water
will drain quickly," Mr Horne said.
"But then we would have no way
to hold it and would face water
issues." I
The water .control structures
are necessary for "life as we know
it" in Florida, he said.
Project Engineer Kathy Col-
lins explained the construction
of the weir was fast-tracked and
was actually completed before its
original Aug. 17, deadline, thanks
to the construction crews, who
worked 'round the clock when

they poured the concrete.
The weir consists of round
concrete structures which cause
the water to flow to the center
of the channel, where a series of
underwater walls slows the flow
and dissipates some of the ener-
gy. The weir maintains a constant
water level on the south side of
the S-65E water control structure
so that water coming through the
structure at high speed does not
hit the bottom of the river with
enough force to erode away 'the
river bottom.
"If the weir had not been com-
pleted before Fay hit, the system
could have failed," she said.
The weir is the largest single
water control structure SFWMD
has ever built.
By Wednesday, water was
coming through the S-65E spill-
way'at a rate of 14,000 cfs or
about 100,000 gallons a second.
Mr. Horne said they expect high
flows for about two weeks, as

"There is still a lot of flooding in
some areas," he said. Water from
Orlando south drains through the

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, September 4, 2008.


God a

By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Last week a major political
party made it known in no uncer-
tain terms that it supported "Gay
Rights" and' "A Mothers Right To
Choose."
This week I will deal with the
first issue, "Gay Rights" and next
week I will deal with the second.
In the book of Genesis we
read: "Now the men of Sodom
were wicked exceedingly and sin-
ners against the Lord."
Sodom was in the Jordan val-
ley near the Dead Sea.
When Lot thought that Ca-
naan's pastures were not large
enough for his flocks, he chose
Sodom for himself and his family.
Abram was quite content to
remain in Canaan.
Lot's choice reminds us of
Adam's decision to eat the forbid-
den fruit.
Adam's penalty was death!


Lot was a righteous man, but
he chose to live in a cesspool of
sin (2 Peter 2:7).
The Lord knew the gravity of
the sin of Sodom and Gomorrah
(Genesis 18:20) and determined
to call these people before His
judgment bar.
Abraham was deeply con-
cerned about his nephew, Lot,
and as he bargained with the
Judge of all men, Abraham heard
God say that He would spare So-
dom if there were Ten righteous
men there.
Life in Sodom for a godly man
and his family was filled with dan-
gers.
Men violated the bodies of one
another with or without consent.
In this regard Lot was clean.
He was no homosexual!
He had not violated another
and miraculously he had escaped
the lustful Sodomites.
Angels came -to visit Sodom
and while they were guests in
Lot's house, men of Sodom came


demanding the use of the Angels
to satisfy the lusts of their flesh.
Even though they were blind-
ed, the Sodomite males beat on
Lot's door.
The angels were spared this
shame.
By God's power Lot and his
family were delivered.
When Lot heard the angelic
charge, "Escape for your life.
Don't look behind you." the Lord
rained brimstone and fire on So-
dom and Gomorrah (Genesis
19:26).
What does God tell us about
"gay rights"?
Homosexuals are human be-
ings (perhaps too much so). They
have a right to hear the gospel.
God sent angels to visit So-
dom.
We are bound by our commit-
ment to Christ to tell them Christ
loves them.
They have a right to know that
God does not regard homosexual
and lesbian as a alternate life


style.
The Lord gave Adam a wife,
not another man.
The Lord gave Eve a husband,
not another woman.
They have a right to know that
this kind of conduct is sin and that
God brings His severest judgment
on those who practice it.
They have a right to be warned
that the Lord will deliver His peo-
ple from the cesspools of this
kind of conduct when His people
call for help.
They have a right to take ad-
vantage of the opportunity to pre-
pare "to meet God face to face as
they attempt to explain why they
have ruined His image.
They have a right to know that
fornicators, idolaters, adulterers,
effeminate, abusers of themselves
with men (homosexuals) will not
inherit the Kingdom of God (I
Corinthians 6:9).
They have a right to repent!
These are the "gay rights" rec-
ognized by the Lord!


Just whistle while you work


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A friend of mine shared some
insights he uses to help him deal
with life's daily grind.
He stated, "You need to accept
that some days you're the pigeon,
and some days you're the statue.
Always keep your words soft and
sweet, just in case you have to eat
them. Always read. stuff that will
make you look good if you die in
the middle of it. Never put both
feet in your mouth at the same
time, because then you won't
have a leg to stand 'on."
Other words of advice: "Drive
carefully. It's not only cars that
can be recalled by their maker.
When everything's coming your
way, you're probably in the
wrong lane. We could learn a lot
from crayons -- some are sharp,
some are pretty, some are dull,
and some have weird names, but
they all have to live in the same


box. A truly happy person is one
who can enjoy the scenery on a
detour."
I appreciated and even smiled
as I read some of his tips, but
when it comes to work and the
daily grind, I have seven heroes I
turn to.
They are miners.
They work in their mine all day
long. They start each day sing-
ing, "Heigh ho! Heigh ho! It's off
to work we go!" and while they
work,they whistle and sing, "Just
whistle while you work!" ,
Sleepy, Doc, Dopey, Happy,
Grumpy, Sneezy, and Bashful
are just cartoons, but these guys
seem to have it all together when
it comes to work!
They are doing something they
enjoy, something they believe is
important, and they get pleasure
out of their work.'
It's not just a paycheck.
They sing out, "We dig, dig,'


dig in our mine the whole day
through, to dig, dig, dig, is what
we like to do!"
* Would that we could all derive
as much pleasure and satisfaction
from our work as do the seven
dwarfs. Would that we all could
share their attitude about our la-
bors!
I have known people who
shared, "I go to work every morn-
ing and I endure it." Or, "I am just
there for the paycheck."
When I hear things like that, I
think about how fortunate that I
am..
I feel galled to my work. If truth
be known, I would probably do it
even if I were not being paid.
But even still, there are days
when I don't want to .come. to
work. There are days when I'd
rather be somewhere else. Yes,
there are some days even the pas-
tor doesn't want to get up and
go to work because work can be


hard, and work can be frustrating,
and working can be tiring.
I think our faith tells us that al-
though no job is perfect, there are
ways to get more meaning and
joy out of our work. ,
Probably the most obvious
way is to realize that our work, no
matter what it is we do, touches
someone somewhere. Work is
about relationships; it is about
making life better for someone
beside us. This aspect of work
may be hard to see in some jobs,
but I believe it is there nonethe-
less.
Our work takes on new mean-
ing when we see it as blessing
others, And if ,as Christians we
add a little bit of faith to what we
do for al living, we may discover
our work bringing us more joy

Labor Day reflections: The real work


- By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
Labor Day is past now. It has
come and gore slipped by the
last of the Summer holidays and a
reminder that Summer is gone.
As I think about "labor" and
"work" I am reminded of a saying
that used to sit in a frame on my
windowsill; "Happiness is when
you do what is pleasing to others
and pleasing to yourself."
This is not "putting in time in
exchange for money" but being
fulfilled by the work we do.
For many, the real "work" is in
being a good parent, serving in a
community organization, volun-
teering to help or to accomplish
something this pleasing.
.. This can be more taxing, more
demanding, more tiring than any
forty-hour week. it is work but it is
fulfilling that's real work.
A recent article spoke of peo-
ple who find themselves begin-
ning careers and not really feeling
as if they "fit" or "belong."
I've known that to happen .to
clergy; pondering whether they
are "called" to work in the Lord's
vineyard or really fit for ministry.
Sometimes, the answer comes
later; when they explore other
fields or find some other line of
work more fulfilling.
One of my classmates from
seminary heard that I had left a
ministry in alcholism and was
returning to a parish ministry. He
sent me a note saying "We always
wind up in parish ministry, that
must be where we belong!"


* Looking back, I find that I al-
ways do "wind up in parish min-
istry" with its many wonderful'
and different facets, places and'
people, experiences and opportu-
nities. It's never been boring.
When thinking about the op-
portunity to take it easier, I imme-
diately and instinctively feel, "No
Way!"
I've decided that retirement
will have to be forced on me;
there is too much to do, too much
that is fascinating in the work-a-
day world where I find myself in
my vocation of forty-plus years.,
A reflection came to me as I
thought about this holiday and
my vocation; and everyone's vo-
cation too.
The Greek word for "worship",
literally means "The work of the.
people."
We don't often think of "wor-
ship" as "work" (there are enough
jokes about the clergy and work
to make this point!), but it is our
bounden duty and our "work."
The work comes when we
think about what it is that we
are doing on Sunday morning or
whenever it is that we worship.
I try to take a few minutes be-
fore leading services to "worship"
on my own; soon I will be busy
leading, reading, preaching, cel-
ebrating helping others and par-
ticipating too; but a moment of
silence to begin helps me reflect
on the work about to be under-
taken.
I think about the past week,
the last time I worshipped, I think
about what parts of that week
I can offer up to God; what was
accomplished and what remains


to be done, about the people I've
encountered and whose lives
have touched mine. and whom I
have touched. '.
My work is to .offer it all.up to
God; with all of the joys and sor-
rows, successes and failures, hap-
pinesses and sorrows, good and
bad.
These are the things I will lay
at the foot of the altar and ask
God to correct, strengthen, bless..
I will ask for spiritual strength,
for all present; that through our
service, the- words we say, the
messages in the hymns, the
thoughts that come when we're
distracted, the prayers said togeth-
er, the printed materials used, the
sermon that I will share that God
wil use all of it and by His work
and ours together at this special
moment, we will return to the
world refreshed,- strengthened,
sustained to go out once. more
and make the coming of His king-
dom a bit sooner.
Labor Day -Liturgy The Work,
of the People Worship our real
work; putting all that we do in
God's context and reflecting ohn
our part in God's plan for our la-
bor whatever it may be.
My work is also the .work of
all of the people; John writes
"The time is coming and has now
come when the true worshippers
will sorship the Father in spirit and
in truth (John 4;23)." that's our


work, that's our worship, that's
what we're really about.

Homeowner wanted to
serve on Value
Adjustment Board
The Hendry County Board of
County Commissioners is seek-
ing a homeowner to serve on the
Hendry County Value Adjustment


Board (VAB), which meets to
hear appeals on property valua-
tion issues. Previously, the VAB
was composed of only elected of-
ficials. This year, the Florida Legis-
lature changed the law to require
that one of the five persons serv-
ing on the VAB must be an owner
of homestead property in Hendry
County. If you are interested in
serving, you should submit a let-
ter of interest to County Attorney
Mark Lapp at MLapp@Hendryfla.
net, P.O. Box 2340, LaBelle, FL
33975, or fax to 863-675-5317.
Letters must be received by Sept.
8. The only required qualification
is that you be an owner of home-
steaded property in Hendry Coun-
ty. Letters should also express any
other skills or experience that you
feel make you suited to serve on
the VAB.

Hurricane
Preparedness


The Clewiston Police Depart-
ment is getting their hurricane
preparedness plan updated for
this season.
We are again looking for those
who have boats or airboats and
are willing to be available to assist
during any disaster.
We would like to have volun-
teers identified and credentials
before a disaster strikes.
When volunteers have been
identified beforehand we are able
to get them ready to respond in
the safest manner possible.
There will be a short training
class on safety and protocol and
then volunteers will receive cre-
dentials that will allow them to
.be admitted into disaster areas in
the city.
For more information please
call Detective Curtis Clay at 863-
983-1474.


Second, to DJ Gardener, I agree absolutely with you about the uni- General News and Information


forms in the middle school. I have multiple children there as well. My

children hate that school too. They loved the elementary school they

went to but now it's a fight for me to get them to go to school. I HATE

the middle school also. Not only do they worry about uniforms and

the color but they worry about "cap" sleeves on the shirts and how

the students tie their shoes. If they aren't tied correctly the teachers

will make the student tie the shoes correctly and make them late to

their next class. Then the teacher won't give them and pass. There are

a lot more topics that the middle school is more worried about than

grades and FCAT scores. I believe, as a parent of one now college

student and four other children in public school and one more to go,

that rising from a "C" school to an "A" school is a lot more important

than uniforms, shoelaces, "cap" sleeves, etc. Another point, there are

many staff members at all the schools, that have uniforms that do not

agree with the uniforms.

Pickett's grab seals win for Glades Central


Moore Haven wins
big, Glades Day loses
kickoff classic game
By Naji Tobias
INI/Florida
BELLE GLADE Fred Pickett
could be called Mr. Clutch for
Glades Central.
For the second game in a row,
he came through when it mat-'
tered most.
, The junior wide receiver, who
caught the game-winning pass in
the Raiders' 54-46 win over Miami
Central this spring, helped the
Raiders pull off a 15-12 comeback
win over the Dillard Panthers on
Aug. 29.
Down 12-7 with just 1:08 left in
the game, the Raiders lined up for
a quick slant play.
On third down, junior quarter-
back Leron 'L.J.' Thomas made a
quick throw to Pickett in the end
zone for a 7-yard touchdown.
It was Pickett's only reception
of the game.
"I was happy I caught it," Pick-
ett said after the game.
"It was open the whole way;
Coach (Jessie Hester) called the
right play.
"Dillard had no safety to cover
me, it was just me and the corner-
back," Pickett continued, as he
explained the play sequence.
"He played me man-to-man, I


did a quick release and I saw L.J.
release the ball."
Though he bobbled the ball
after a Dillard defender hit him,
Pickett used his hand-eye coordi-
nation to secure that grab.
"It was clutch, no doubt about
it," Hester said the about game-
winning play. "Dillard gave us a
look with an all-out blitz.
"We were trying to get the play
off, Dillard's cornerbacks kept
flushing out our quarterback,"
Hester continued.
"It was a great catch, Pickett
made the grab and stayed with
it."
Thomas ran the ball in for
a two-point conversion to put
Glades Central up by three points,
which proved to be the margin of
victory.
The junior quarterback, who
was 13-for-24 with two touch-
downs and two interceptions,
connected with Rantavious Woo-
ten on Glades Central's first play
of the game.,
The Raiders' top receiver, who
orally committed to LSU hours
before the game, outran Dillard's
secondary for a 40-yard touch-
down early in the first quarter.
"Rantavious is a tremendous
player, LSU is getting a great kid,"
Hester said. "He'll always have a
good game from here on out."
This victory was, by no means,
an easy one for the Raiders.
Just a few plays before the


game-winning grab, it had ap-
peared Dillard would come out
victorious.
But after an apparent fourth-
down incompletion from the
Raiders, the Panthers were flagged
for pass interference.
It effectively killed Dillard's
chances of pulling off the upset
win.
Dillard couldn't get senior run-
ning back Trabis Ward into the
end zone, although the highly-
coveted back ran for 122 yards on
30 carries in the game.
"Glades Central is a team that
has a great tradition," Ward said.
"They'll make me better down
the line because running against
them, you have to get past a fast,
swarming group. Now I know I
can run against any defense."
Keith Frank, Dillard's head
coach, summed up the game for
his team.
"We're a good young team,
but we're still trying to find our
way," Frank said.
"Trabis is a great running back,
he did real good tonight.
"Glades Central has a great
program here," Frank continued.
"It just feels good for Hester to
come back and give to the pro-
gram.
"They got a homegrown prod-
uct coaching and I think he'll
do well," the Dillard coach said.
"The kids play well for Hester and
I wish him the best."


INI/Naji Tobias
Glades Central quarterback Leron 'L.J.' Thomas makes this nice runto end the third quarter
in the kickoff classic game against Dillard. He threw for two touchdowns and made a two-
point conversion in the Raiders 15-12 victory.

Moore Haven 34, Summit
Christian 13: Junior running
back Fred Hall led the Terriers
rushing attack as he recorded 14
carries for 134 yards.
Hall's top highlight came in
the first quarter, when he scored
Moore Haven's first touchdown
on a 65-yard run.
Dalton Britt, the team's senior
quarterback, accounted for two
of Moore Haven's touchdowns in
the game.
He threw one (6-for-17, 103
passing yards) and rushed for one
as well.
Royal Palm Beach 21,
Glades Day 14: Bo Schlecter
threw for two touchdowns in the


game, both to senior wide receiv-
er Deandre Jackson, a transfer
from Suncoast.
However, Glades Day's rush-
ing defense allowed 200 yards, in-
cluding a game-winning 60-yard
run from Javonte Green in the
fourth quarter.
What also hurt the Gators was
its own running game, as senior
Brandon Dean was out with a
pulled hamstring.
Nevertheless, Glades Day got
its first chance to see Calvin Tay-
lor in action.
The eighth-grade running
back, who's the son of NFL star
Fred Taylor, had 20 carries for 55
yards in his debut.

morrow night will be on the road

Storm Fay displays weather extremes


Two years of

drought, one
week of deluge

underscore water.

management chal-

lenges

West Palm Beach, Fla.
-Even as a two-year water
shortage and rainfall defi-
cit steadily dropped Lake
Okeechobee's water level
to an all-time record low of
8.82 feet on July 2, 2007, the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) was
strengthening its flood protec-
tion system with the largest
single water control structure
it has ever built.
The new weir protecting
the S-65E lock and spillway
on the Kissimmee River was
completed about two weeks
before Tropical Storm Fay
swept into South Florida. The
region's prolonged dry condi-
tions, which led to 4,630 wild-
fires in 2007 and threatened
water supplies for millions
of people, had just begun to
ease when the tropical storm
dropped more than 14 inches
of rain at some locations.
"We transitioned almost
overnight from managing a
water shortage to lowering
canals for flood protection
in advance of Tropical Storm
Fay," said SFWMD Opera-
tions Director Susan Sylves-
-ter. "Florida's unpredictable
weather requires continual
balancing of those missions.
Our systems again exhibited
strong performance during
the storm because of our
continual preparation, main-
tenance and planning."
The District carried out
pre-storm preparations by
drawing down canals to


make room for storing, as
much storm water as possi-
ble several days before Tropi-
cal Storm Fay hit. During. the
approximately six days Fay
slowly spun across the state,
the following data were re-
corded across the region:
-An average of 7.59 inches
of rain fell throughout the Dis-
trict.
-Rainfall ranged from
about 5 inches in parts of
Miami-Dade County to more
than 10 inches in the Caloo-
sahatchee Basin and Hendry
County.
-Lake Okeechobee rose
more than 24 inches, to 13.63
feet as of August 26, up from
11.34 feet on August 19, as Fay
began to impact the state.
-The lake rose more than
two feet in a single week for
the first time in recorded his-
tory, based on records dating
back to 1931.
-The largest weekly rise
prior to Fay was about 1.7 feet
in October 1951.
-The largest weekly rise
during the 2004 wet season
was about 1.5 feet.
Stormwater runoff from
Fay is still flowing into the 730-
square-mile lake. The District
remains in contact with and
is providing data to the U.S.
Army Cotps of Engineers, the
agency responsible for man-
aging the lake level.
Fay also swelled the rain-
fall total so far for the month
of August to 10.63 inches, ap-
proximately double the nor-
mal amount.
"This is only late August.
September is peak hurricane
season," said SFWMD meteo-
rologist Geoff Shaughnessy.

tion system for potential sum-
mer storms. Another deluge
on the heels of Fay would
represent more water man-
agement challenges for the
District. The sheer amount of
rain from Fay in such a short
period of time triggered local-
ized flooding, which could
be exacerbated by another
storm.
The total amount of wet
season rainfall remains un-
certain. Consequently, water
managers do not yet know
how 'much water South Flor-
ida will have in the system to
start the.dry season in Decem-
ber. Based on records dating
back to 1932, 2006 and 2007
were the driest back-to-back
calendar years on record, cre-
ating a combined rainfall defi-
cit of more than 20 inches.
For that reason, the District
staff continues work on ayear-
round water conservation
plan. Successfully fostering a
strong ethic of conservation
will protect South Florida's
sensitive water resources and
help ensure a more sustain-
able supply of water for both
natural systems and people
throughout the year.
Managing Every Drop
About the South Florida

agement District is a regional,
governmental agency that
oversees the water resources
in the southern half of the state
- 16 counties from Orlando to

For those that don't know Keri
Alford and Holly Bach, they are
dedicated teachers and coaches
at Clewiston High School. Since
the end of last school year, and
continuing through October, they
are also dedicating there time to
another worthy cause. After both
ladies had experienced the loss of

ma, they decided that it was time
to make a difference. They have


been training with the Leukemia
and Lymphoma Society's, Team

the Nike Women's Marathon, on
October 19, 2008. Keri and Holly

goal to fight through the training
and complete this marathon, in
memory of their grandmothers
fight with Lymphoma.
Along with there training they
have been fundraising to help,


raise funds for Leukemia, Lym-
phoma, and Myeloma research,
and hopefully a cure in the future.
They have committed to raise
money for this outstanding orga-
nization and have both set a per-
sonal goal of $4,000 each before
they approach the marathon start
line.
Keri and Holly also wanted
to hear the stories and names
of all those in Clewiston who


have been affected by Leukemia,
Lymphoma, or Myeloma as a
patient, caregiver, or loved one.
They would like to run in honor
or memory of that person along
with their own cause, in order
to represent how these diseases
have affected America's Sweetest
Town.
Anyone interested in helping
Keri or Holly achieve their fund-
raising goal, your donation today,


can help save lives tomorrow.
Your tax-deductable donation
can be made out to the Leuke-
mia and Lymphoma Society and
sent to the following address:
Holly Bach & Keri Alford, 339 N.

Clewiston Tigers Trumped by King's Academ


Clewiston traveled to West
Palm Beach on Friday for their
2008 Kickoff Classic against the
Lions of King's Academy and
were beaten 29-8.
The preview contest showed
two clear points: Those being
that the Class 2A Tigers are in a
rebuilding season with a lot to
learn and the Class 2B Lions have
a very good football team.
Throughout the game, the Ti-
gers were extremely weak on of-
fense and unable to mount any
serious drive on the night.
The Tiger defense played hard
at times but was outclassed.
Clewiston managed but 29
rushing yards on 26 attempts.
Senior quarterback Isandro Mar-
quez showed significant improve-
ment on his passing skills from
the previous year, completing 3 of
5 passes for 22 yards. But he was
also sacked 3 times while in a pass
formation due to breakdowns in
pass protection blocking.
King's Academy rolled up
162 yards rushing on 39 carries.
Quarterback Mike Miller hit on 5
of 9 passes for a total of 133 yards,
with two long completions of 45
and 48 yards.
The Tigers' only first half score
came when the Lions were in


punt formation and snapped the
ball through the end zone for a
safety.
The safety was set up after
Tiger Darris Hughes reeled off an
84-yard kickoff return to the Li-
ons' 8-yard line.
But three short rushing at-
tempts and an incomplete pass
turned the ball over to King's
Academy at their 3-yard line.
The Tiger defense held after
giving up one first down and the
punt snapped sailed way over the
punters' head.
Trailing at the intermission
20-2, Clewiston came out and
showed some spark.
Defensively, the Tigers were in
their best form of the night in the
opening second half series by the
Lions.
Senior defensive end Adam
Trevino made several crushing
tackles and linebackers Dillon
Irey and, Leonard Newton were
also on the prowl.
King's Academy tried a fourth
down conversion pass and New-
ton intercepted and returned the
ball down to the 4-yard.line.
Three plays later, Marquez
rolled out to pass, found no open
targets, pulled the ball down and
scooted around the corner for the


touchdown.
The Tigers went for two points
and the rushing attempt failed.
But, the Lions came back and
drove down to the Tiger one-half
yard stripe before they were held.
The Tigers had two running
attempts that netted only 3 yards
before Marquez was sacked in
the end zone for a safety.
First year Tiger Head Coach
Joe Roth knew prior to the con-
test that this was going to be a
challenging season.
He said, "We've just got so
many kids who have no varsity
experience and some who have
been out of football for two and
three years. We've got to ana-
lyze our mistakes and learn from
them."
The Tigers travel to Plantation
on Friday for a 7:30 p.m. non-
district contest with American
Heritage, a perennial Class 2A
powerhouse under Coach Byron
Walker.

Whales
Continued From Page 1
Alfred Wegener, a German
meteorologist, traveled from con-
tinent to. continent in search of
meteorites. While searching for
meteorites, he sometimes, found,
fossils on the different continents
that he visited.
He became puzzled when
he noted that many of the fossil
specimens he collected on the
continents were the same spe-
cies.
This created a problem. How
could one species of animal live
on different continents that were
separated by thousands of miles


of water?
He spent years researching
this riddle. During his research he
noted how all seven continents fit
together like a jig saw puzzle. In
1912, he presented his publica-
tion "Drifting Continent Theory"
to the scientific community.
The theory stated that the
seven continents were once one
land mass, a super continent that
he named Pangea.
This theory was ridiculed by
many because Alfred Wegener
could never explain the dynamists,
that separated Pangea into seven
continents.
Technology changed, and sci-
entist discovered in the 1960s that
there were faults (cracks) in the
earth's crust. The scientific com-


munity published a new theory
called Plate Tectonics in the early
1970s. This theory explained the
dynamists that broke Pangea
apart.
The earth is covered with a
crust, but not a solid crust. The
crust is broken in pieces; these
pieces are called plates. The
plates are floating on the asthe-
nosphere, a flexible solid consist-
ing of molten rock, nickel and
other minerals. The molten rock
Magnaa) from volcanoes is part
of the asthenosphere. The activ-.
ity from the asthenosphere is the
dynamic force that moves and
changes the.earth's plates.
The plates are large and small.
The North American plate, Afri-
can Plate, Pacific Plate, Austra-


lian Plate and South American
Plate are some of the large plates.
The North American and African
Plates were once connected and
broke apart.
A section of West Africa was
left lying on the ocean floor be-
low North America. This section
is now called the Florida Plat-
form. It is 350 miles wide and 450
miles long.
The Florida Platform was
under a warm tropical sea that
teemed with marine life. Differ-
ent species of coral made up
the reefs that stretched across
Florida. A vast array of fish, large
and small, lived among the reefs.
Once upon a time, whales, the
Mako, Tiger, Great White and
Meglodon sharks swam down


yesterday's Sugarland Highway.
The fossil teeth of these sharks re-
mind us of that marine world.
There were also sea mam-
mals that inhabited this tropical
sea. The Dugong, a mammal that
looks similar to the manatee, was
unearthed in Hendry county sev-
eral years ago. It was over 12 feet
long.
The ancient whales that swam
in pods (herds) across Hendry
County died and left many fos-
sils that bare witness to this
once mighty animal. One whale
skeleton located 20 miles from
Clewiston was approximately 45
feet long.
The warm tropical sea that
once covered Florida is gone.
Florida is now a long peninsula.


What causes made the Florida
Platform emerge as a Peninsula?
Was it the limestone sediment
deposits from dead marine crea-
tures building up over thousands
of years that freed Florida from
the sea?
This question will be provided
in the next edition of "A Walk in
the Past."
I hope you enjoyed this story.
Please contact the Clewiston Mu-
seum if you have questions, arti-
facts, pictures, or a "Whale of a
Tale." The Museum's hours are
from 9 a.m., to 4 p.m. Monday
through Friday.

ing out to be a busier-than-normal


hurricane season.
If Fay produced such large
gains in the lake, and Tropical
Storm Hanna is threatening to
lash against the eastern coast,
what will happen if newly formed


storms Ike -- midway through the
Atlantic -- and Josephine, off the
coast of Africa, manage to make
a direct hit?
According to published re-
ports, the goal of the corps is to


maintain the lake between 12 1/2
to 15 feet; a measure the corps
believes is still within control.
Water managers have tradi-
tionally tried to keep water levels
at a reasonable level, especially


leading into each year's hurricane
season.
A high water level coupled
with an irregular rain event such
as a tropical storm could compro-
mise the integrity of the Herbert


Hoover Dike.
The corps is expected to make
a final decision on Wednesday re-
garding the releases.
