Victim shot in leg,
escapes pursuers
By Jose Jesus

Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- The Hendry |
County Sheriff's Office arrest-
ed three men in connection
with a shooting last week and
are looking for a fourth man for
questioning.'
The incident happened on
Sept. 4, in Harlem. While the in-
cident was serious, the victim in
the apparent set-up was not fatal-

ly injured.
Demaster Jored Arthur, 27,
said he was assaulted by three
men carrying guns at about 4
a.m. The victim said he was shot
at multiple times, but managed
to escape despite suffering a
gunshot to the leg.


Arthur said he
was walking east on
Harlem Tenant Circle
that morning when
William Edward Cole-
man, 27, allegedly ap-
proached him.
I i a m Arthur, thinking he
ian had seen two more
men in a nearby alley
asked if he was alone.
The victim then claims he saw
Theophilus Brooks, 26, appear
from out of the shadows. The
suspect was carrying a firearm,
and, according to Arthur, fired
several shots.

Board discusses,

budget, bus transit,


hospital issues
By Stankeisha Burchell The route runs 16 hours a
Special to the Clewiston News day, seven days a week.


CLEWISTON -- One. of the
issues up for discussion at
Tuesday night's Hendry County
Board Meeting was the Palm
Tran Connection bus route that
provides transportation from
Palm' Beach Community Col-
lege in Belle Glade to the Wal-
Mart Supercenter in Clewiston.


The Florida Department of
Transportation enacted this
route in 2002 and has been a
saving force for some families.
Evidently, due to budget restric-
tions at the county level, the
transit system is being recon-
sidered.
See Board Page 18


. As he ran into the alley to
escape the shooter, Arthur said
two more men, Ernest Shapiro
Madrid, 26, and another suspect
appeared.
According to the police re-
port, the last two suspects, also
carrying firearms, began shoot-
ing at Arthur.
Arthur was struck several
times in. the right leg but some-
how managed to get away from
his pursuers. He was treated at
Hendry Regional Medical Center
for his wounds and was expect-
ed to recover.
Brooks and Coleman were ar-


rested the next day and charged
with aggravated battery with a
deadly weapon, use of a firearm
during a felony, improper exhibit
of a firearm and discharge of a
firearm in public. Madrid was ar-
rested Sept. 6, facing the safime
charges.
Investigators are looking for
Candid6 Mandreek Washington
for questioning.
It is uncertain what motivated
the crime, and the sheriff's office
has not said whether or not the
case is gang-related.

Interacting with the grandkids via Internet


Website offers way of
spending time with
grandchildren

By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
Seniors with computers often
use them for communication
with adult family out of the area
or out of state.
But what about communicat-
ing with the grandkids-even the
really young grandkids?
AARP estimates that distance
is one of the major barriers (45
percent) that -prevent grandpar-
ents from seeing their grandchil-
dren.
When I saw. a .press release
that described a way for grand-
parents to interact with their
grandchildren via computer and
the Internet, I took a second
look.
It is called Grandparent Games.
at www.grandparentgames.com.
If you cannot see the grandkids
in person as often as you'wish, try


on1iputing

For

Seniors

%ir "this .-'-j,71 r Lrt L n-r.I I
* *"' -" l -u, .'f 'll ,":- 'l^" I -'"'r

this interactive web site for a little
long-distance grandparenting.
.The site lets grandparents play
games with the grandchildren us-
ing a computer 6n either end.
Its simple setup and intuitive


navigation makes it easy for those
who aren't all that sure of them-
selves on the computer.
Security
This site is very security-con-
scious.
After you log in, the address in
your browser window starts with
https.
The "s" stands for security.
And the children do not have
to deate an account.
Your grandkids never have to
give any information about them-
selves.
They will be able to meet with
you simply by entering your e-
mail address.
You are the one who signs up
for the service. The way it works
is while you speak on the phone,
you are both looking at the inter-
active screen.
If you happen to have a cam-
era as part of your computer, you
can see each other.
But having a computer cam-
era is not necessary to enjoy the
site and the mutual play.


Providing one-on-one time
to "play" together, Grandparent
Games offers grandparents of
even babies a means to interac-
tive through exciting animations,
pictures, and sounds.
Over time, it becomes a learn-
ing resource for young children as
the grandparent directs the expe-
rience and becomes the teacher
of fundamentals such as math,
reading, and geography.
When asked, what the best
thing is about Grandparent Games
the developer said, "I am now a
part of my grandson's life."
In recognition of Grandparents
Day, which was Sept. 7, the web
site is offering a 30-day free trial
period.

548 meals were purchased at
Beef 'O'Brady's for the benefit of
the hospital foundation, totaling
nearly$5,000 in food saleswhich


led to a donation of $750 to the
foundation.
Randy and Kersten Maxson,
owners of the Clewiston Beef
'O'Brady's, have offered to con-
tinue this hospital foundation
benefit each year during the sum-,
mer months of June, July and

tion's commemorative brick cam-
paign; they are purchasing bricks

.rant since it opened in March of
2007.
Proceeds from the founda-
tion's brick sales will go towards
the construction costs of the new

TALLAHASSEE-Like every-
thing that accompanies the In-
ternet age, the phenomenon of
online shopping has grown sub-
stantially from where it began in
the late 1990s. .,
+ i Now, with the click'of a mouse,
consumers can purchase every-
thing from clothing and books to
furniture and cars. And even in a
troubled economy, the number
of Internet purchases is rising at
a continually fast pace. According
to a 2008 Nielsen Global Online
Survey, more than 85 percent of
the world's population has used
the Internet to make a purchase,
which is a 40 percent increase in
the market for online shopping
over the last two years.
And by year's end, it is ex-
pected that online spending will
increase by 17 percent from last
year to $204 billion, according to
a survey conducted by Internet
analysis firm Forrester Research
for Shop.org.
"I shop online because it's easy
and there are so many options,"
said Bridget Brennan, a student
at the University of Florida. 'And-
with the advent of free shipping
or overnight shipping options,
you can purchase things almost
as quickly and at the same price
as if you went to the store, but
without the inconvenience." '.
And while the Internet is a
virtual smorgasbord of products
and services, the idea behind on-
line shopping, particularly for the
generation that grew up with the
Internet, is convenience.
According to the 2008 Pew
Internet & American Life Project
report, 78 percent of Internet us-'


ers agree that shopping online is
convenient for them.
Service companies are taking
advantage of. the convenience
factor to increase their sales.
Car insurance companies, for.-
one, have jumped onr this strategy
to make comparing' and purchas-
ing car insurance less tedious.
But the information provided can
sometimes be misleading.
Estimates provided online
might-not take into account in-
dividual differences such as ac-
cidents, possible discounts and
coverage required by the state.
If an insurance company is na-
tional, its Web site may not com-
ply with each state's separate re-
quirements. And price quotes or
comparisons found online might
not always tell consumers which
company has the lowest price.
"Consumers should never as-
sume that just because something
is online, particularly insurance,
that it's going to be cheaper," said
Jeff Grady, president of the Florida
Association of Insurance Agents.
"Local independent agents are
the only ones who can accurately
take specific consumer character-
istics and shop among different
companies to get the best rate."
Mr. Grady also notes that of-
ten the cost of gaining an agent's
service actually makes the price
lower.
A local agent relieves the insur-
er, and thus the consumer, of hav-
ing to spend more money for the
insurer's advertising, telephone
banks and other Internet or direct
solicitation costs.
For many consumers, service
trumps convenience when it


comes to purchasing auto insur-
ance.
A J.D. Power and Associates
2008 Insurance New Buyer Study
found that buyer satisfaction
-scores are higher \ hen auto in-
surance policies are purchased
through local agents as opposed
to a call center or online.
"Convenience is important,
but a local agent is essential if you
want the best service," said Sam
Rogers, Jr., an independerntagent-
with Rogers, Gunter Vaughn In-
surance in Tallahassee. "Besides,
it's never exclusively about price..
It's about getting the best deal,
which means paying the lowest
price and still getting the protec-
tion you need or want."
Another consideration: while
purchasing services online may
be a..positive feature for individu-
als who don't like to be hassled-by
salespeople, an online auto insur,-
ance'policy will direct consumers
to a call center in the event of an
accident or general inquiry.
"Calling an 800 number may
seem alright until you're -in a se-
rious accident and need help
maneuvering through the claims
process, "said Mr. Grady. "That's
when an agent's true value comes
in to play."
But Internet shopping is a
growing market, with fans in ev-
ery arena. And according to Jer-
emy Bowler, senior director of the
insurance practice at J.D. Power
and Associates, in 2008, sales
transactions processed entirely
on the Web now account for 21
percent of all new customer in-
surance sales.

Federal relief funds FFB calls for comments on fumigant rules


sought for counties


impacted by Fay


Commissioner asks
for assistance for 36
counties
TALLAHASSEE-Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son has asked Governor Charlie
Crist to seek federal disaster dec-
larations from the federal gov-
ernment for 36 Florida counties
battered by high winds, excessive
rainfall, flooding or tornados from
Tropical Storm Fay.
Because of standing water that
remains in some areas of Florida,
Commissioner Bronson stated


that additional counties could
be added to the list of counties
requiring such a designation,
whose threshold is agricultural
losses of at least 30 percent.
If the federal government ul-
timately declares those counties
disaster areas, agricultural pro-
ducers who raise crops in the
counties may be entitled to fed-
eral disaster assistance.

the Governor can be found at this'

Farm Bureau
considers comments
for reevaluation

GAINESVILLE The Florida
Farm Bureau Federation is urg-
ing Florida growers to submit
comments to the Environmental
Protection Agency requesting the
agency reevaluate its proposed
Reregistration Eligibility Decisions
for several important soil fumi-
gants.
The EPA has extended the
comment period through Oct. 30.
American Farm Bureau was suc-
cessful in calling on the agency to
provide increased time for farm-
ers to assess the impact of the
new rules.
"Soil fumigants are vital tools
for Florida farmers who raise food
crops such as potatoes, tomatoes,
strawberries, carrots and peppers


- all important crops here in Flor-
ida," said Florida Farm Bureau
President John L. Hoblick.
"An extension of the comment
period gives growers an enhanced
opportunity to present their side
of the story, including the pos-
sible impacts on food prices and
supplies, and to suggest modifica-
tions to the proposed rules."
The rule on soil fumigants
pertains to such pesticides as
Chloropicrin, Dazomet, metam
sodium/potassium and methyl
bromide.
Without the use of these fumi-
gants, yields would be reduced,
the labor needed would be in-
creased and grower profitability
would be decreased.
Nationwide, the production of
those food crops is expected to
be valued at more than $40 bil-
lion in 2008.
This will amount to 22 percent
of the value of crops grown this


year.
Florida Farm Bureau is con-
cerned that unnecessary restric-
tions on the continued availability
and use of these fumigants will
cause significant adverse econom-
ic impacts on Florida's agriculture
industry, threatening consumer
access to an affordable and safe,
domestic, fresh-food supply.
The Federal Register notice
can be found at http://edocket.
access.gpo.gov/2008/E8-16266.
htm gov/2008/E8-16266.htm>.
Additional information about
the rule is posted on the agency's
website at http://www.epa.gov/
oppsrrdl/reregistration/soil_fu-
migants. oppsrrdl/reregistration/soil_
fumigants/#next>
EPA has indicated that, based
on the comments it receives, it
may modify the rule or some of
the mitigation measures it has


published.
Farm Bureau will file addition-
al comments to the agency on the
rules and their potential impact.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide.
Headquartered in Gainesville,
the Federation is an independent,
nonprofit agricultural organiza-
tion.

Bronson urges consumers to follow food safety tips


TALLAHASSEE-September is
National Food Safety Education
Month, and Florida Agriculture
and Consumer Services Com-
missioner Charles H. Bronson is
urging the public to learn about
and follow safe food-handling
practices.
The department's Division
of Food Safety protects the food
supply through permitting and
inspecting retail food establish-
ments and lab testing food prod-
ucts. But once consumers have
purchased the food it is up to
them to follow safe and proper
food handling practices. Food-
borne illness is caused by bacte-
ria often undetectable by sight,
smell or taste.
"This campaign couldn't have
come at a more appropriate time


given the extended salmonella
outbreak and a number of re-
cent food recalls," Commissioner
Bronson said. "People need to
take just a little time to get the
facts and follow the recommend-
ed safety guidelines."
A recent survey conducted by
the Partnership for Food Safety In-
formation, a consortium of indus-
try, state and federal government
food safety experts, indicates 75
percent of respondents believe
food-related illness is a serious
threat to their health. Yet that
same survey also shows that only
15 percent consistently use a food
thermometer. Cooking and stor-
ing food at the correct tempera-
ture prevents harmful bacteria
from making a family sick.
"While the food industry and


government must step up their
food safety activities, significant
portions of food-borne illnesses
are caused in the home so con-
sumers need to follow the four
most important facts of food safe-
ty," Commissioner Bronson said.
Clean
Wash hands and surfaces of-
ten. People need to wash their
hands with soap for at least 20
seconds before and after han-
dling food. They should also
wash cutting boards, counter-
tops and utensils with hot soapy
water before and after preparing
each food item. Rinse fresh fruit
and vegetables under running tap
water and rub firm skin produce
with a vegetable brush.


Separate
Cross contamination can cause
bacteria to spread and consum-
ers need to "think safety" before
they even leave the grocery store.
When shopping, keep fresh pro-
duce separated from household
chemicals and raw meat, poultry
or seafood. Keep fresh produce
separate from raw meat, poultry
and seafood in the refrigerator
and it is best to use a different
cutting board for meats and veg-
etables to avoid contamination
Cook
It. is important to use a food
thermometer to be sure food is
cooked to the proper tempera-
tures. Cook roasts and steaks to a
minimum of 145 degrees, poultry


should have a minimum inter-
nal temperature of 165 degrees.
Cook ground meat to a minimum
of 160 degrees and leftovers and
casseroles should have an inter-
nal temperature of 165 degrees.
Chill
Bacteria spread fastest at tem-
peratures between 40 degrees
and 140 degrees so chilling food
properly is an important food
safety practice. Chill leftovers
within two hours and keep the re-
frigerator at 40 degrees or lower.
Refrigerate or freeze meat, poul-
try, eggs and other perishables as
soon as possible after purchase.
Leftovers should be put in shal-
low containers so the food will
chill more quickly,' preventing
bacteria from growing. It is also


important to never defrost food
at room temperature. Food has
to be kept at a safe temperature
during thawing. Consumers can
defrost food three ways: in the
refrigerator, in cold water, and in
the microwave.
Food safety is everyone's re-
sponsibility and following the
listed practices can greatly reduce
the chance of a food-borne ill-
ness. Food safety information can
be found on the department's Di-
vision of Food Safety web site at
http://www.doacs.state.fl.us/fs.
There is also information on
the Florida Department of Health
web site at http://www.doh.state.

Safety Education web site at

Dental association launches good dental health campaign


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Dental Association (FDA) recently
launched its statewide "Dentistry:
Gateway to Good Health" cam-
paign.
The effort, unveiled with a life-
size, portable billboard courtesy
of Lamar Advertising in Tallahas-
see, targets both children and
seniors in an effort to stress the
importance of early dental habits
to lifelong health.
"With the oral-systemic link
growing stronger everyday, it is
critical that we educate Floridians
about the importance of dental
hygiene," FDA President Dr. Ted
Haeussner said.
"With the help of our cam-
paign supporters, the FDA is
reaching out to multiple audi-
ences, from expectant mothers
to nursing home residents, to in-
crease dental literacy in Florida."
In addition to FDA President
Dr. Ted Haeussner, campaign
supporters in attendance includ-
ed Florida Healthy Kids Executive
Director Richard Robleto, Florida
Association for Homes and Ser-
vices for the Aging President/
Chief Operating Officer Janegale


Boyd, Florida Pediatric Society
Executive Director Dawn Pollock,
Florida School Nutrition Asso-
ciation Executive Director Judy

ety, the Florida Academy of Fam-
ily Physicians, the Florida Health
Care Association, the University of,
Florida College of Dentistry, Nova
Southeastern University College
of Dental Medicine, Florida State
University Athletic Department,
and MORE HEALTH Inc.
The campaign's message,
"Dentistry: Gateway to Good
Health," highlights the impor-
tance of dental care to overall


well-being.
More than 51 million school
hours and 164 million work hours
are lost each year in the United
States due to dental-related is-
sues. In addition, .recent studies
have found:
Severe periodontal disease in
pregnant women may increase
the risk for pre-term delivery,
which increases the risk of low-
birth weight babies.
Periodontal bacteria in the ar-
teries of 9 out of 15 patients with
coronary artery disease.
That poorly controlled type 2
diabetic patients are more likely
to develop periodontal disease.
And 65 out of 130 people with
rheumatoid arthritis were more
than twice as likely to have peri-
odontal disease.
With the help of campaign
supporters, the FDA will: place 12
billboards around the state (La-
mar Advertising, Clear Channel
Outdoor and CBS Outdoor).
place dental articles in state-
wide publications, distribute
dental brochures regarding new
and expectant mothers, children,
seniors, nutrition, and the oral-


systemic link.
distribute infant pre-tooth-
brushes, mouthguards and dry
mouth mouthwash.
hold dental literacy events,
such as an upcoming opportunity
for FSU college football players
to meet with and reinforce the
importance of mouthguards to
Tallahassee Parks and Recreation
youth tackle football players, and
statewidrl nursing home nresren-


stations.
The FDA is a Tallahassee-
based, statewide, professional as-
sociation representing member-
dentists in Florida. Founded in
1884 by 12 dentists, the FDA now
has almost 7,000 members, rep-
resenting about 70 percent of all
Florida-licensed dentists.
The FDA maintains three of-
fices in Tallahassee and has 60

Florida KidCare launches


good health promo


Kids to promote Flor-
ida KidCare program

TALLAHASSEE Students
dreaming of a "big break" can
compete for their moment in the
spotlight with the Florida Kid-
Care "Act-Out for Health" contest
[www.actout4health.org].
Middle school and high school
students across Florida are en-
couraged to produce a 30-second
television commercial or create
a print advertisement promoting
Florida KidCare, the state and
federally-funded insurance pro-
gram providing affordable health
benefits for children birth through
18.
"A recent study by the Univer-
sity of Florida Institute for Child
Health Policy revealed the highest
percentage of uninsured children
in the state are kids between the
ages of 12 and 18," said Rich Rob-
leto, executive director of Florida
Healthy Kids, a Florida KidCare
partner.
"This contest allows kids in
this age range, whether they have
insurance or not, to share their


perceptions and thoughts about
getting good healthcare and why
families should apply for Florida
KidCare benefits."
Florida KidCare is available to
all Florida children without health
insurance.
Children enrolled in the pro-
gram receive preventive care,
such as regular doctor's visits,
immunizations, dental and eye
care, at a price their families can
afford.
Many pay less than $20 per
month; most pay nothing at all.
All of the contest entries will
be judged on creativity and ability
to promote Florida KidCare ben-
efits to a diverse population.
The winning commercial may
air on television stations and the
winning print ad may be pub-
lished in newspapers and maga-
zines across the state as part of
the 2009 Florida KidCare media
campaign.
A first place winner and run-
ner-up will be chosen from six
different regions across the state.
One grand prize winner in the
print and commercial categories
will be chosen from the regional


winners and awarded a $5,000
scholarship.
Other prizes include Best Buy
gift cards for each student that
helped produce the winning
advertisement and a monetary
donation given to the students'
school.
The contest is open to all
middle and high school students
across the state.
To receive an entry form and
contest guidelines, visit www.ac-
tout4health.org.

SCHOOL ISSUES: I would like to address the Middle School is-
sue. I disagree that the uniforms are more expensive than allowing
students to wear whatever they wish. I know for my child the manda-
tory dress code saved me a lot of money this year. The dress code does
allow students to take the focus off who can afford the "brand names"
and who can not. It evens the playing field for all students to start off
on the same level and be judged for themselves versus being judged
for their parent bank account.
However, I do have issues with the way the staff view our students.
I have been in the front office a couple of times and have witnessed
the office personnel addressing students and I feel the staff are com-
pletely inappropriate in their behavior. We ensure our children to your
care to nurture and enrich them instead the staff belittle, demean and
are condescending to our children. How are they ever going to learn
self respect and self esteem in this environment? It is no wonder so
many children have abandoned public school for private school. The
treatment they receive at the middle school is paramount to emotional
abuse. The principal should really take a look at the staff he employs.
The teachers I met at open house were no different, please remember
you are teaching impressionable students not hardened criminals.

Kristina
Hendry County Property Ap-
praiser Kristina A. Kulpa is for-
mally announcing she is running
for re-election.
A Florida resident since age
one, Ms. Kulpa began her real
estate career in 1978 with the
Florida Department of Trans-
portation, where she rose to the
position of District Administrator
of Outdoor Advertising. She was
self-employed as an independent
fee appraiser from 1986 to 1992
with a stint as an appraiser for the
Hendry County Property Apprais-
er's Office in 1988-1989. She was
first elected as Hendry County
Property Appraiser in 1993.
"Since entering office 15 years
ago, we in the Property Apprais-
er's office have encountered and
overcome numerous challenges.
Early on, updating and upgrading
an inadequate computer system
was a major effort. After upgrad-
ing our system and retraining
staff, we were able to process the
property tax roll on time and on
budget. Even the more complicat-
ed requirements of the Save Our
Homes Constitutional Amend-
ment (Amendment 10, the consti-
tutional cap on property values)
was successfully navigated.
"We are now in the midst
of our most challenging period
yet. The bursting of the housing
bubble, especially here in South
Florida, has put a strain on ho-
meowners and all governmental
activities supported by property
taxes. Several proposed state
constitution amendments on the
November ballot will impact the
property appraiser's duties, espe-
cially Amendment 5 which trans-
fers the burden of the property tax
on home owners to other taxes,
such as the. sales tax. This will
require a complete overall of all
reporting and forms necessary to


Seeks Reelection


t Kulpa
develop and deliver the tax roll for
the second consecutive year. Sta-
bility and continuity in this office
is so very important especially
now in times of budget deficits
and continuing fluctuation," she
said.
This year Kristina Kulpa has
submitted Hendry County's prop-
erty tax roll on time, fair and equi-
table, obtaining the necessary ap-
proval by the Florida Department
of Revenue. This is the 16th year
she has accomplished this task by
working with the Department to
justify our local market values.
"We have to be prepared for
whatever Florida voters decide.
This is a time when proven lead-
ership and proven experience
count. This is when government
must be efficient, as well as re-
sponsive. Having an open door
and a willingness to listen have
been hallmarks of my administra-
tion of the Property Appraiser's
Office and I intend to keep it so,"
Ms. Kulpa said.
"The Property Appraiser posi-
tion is not a job one can just walk
in and do. It requires specific
knowledge, good sound judge-
ment, training and skill to man-
age and operate the office effec-
tively," says Ms. Kulpa. Currently
Krsitina Kulpa has over 900 hours
in professional appraisal courses
through the Appraisal Institute,
the International Association of
Assessing Officers where she
held an Instructors certificate, the
American Society of Appraisers,
the National Association of Master
Appraisers and the International
Right of Way Association.
Ms. Kulpa received a Bachelor
of Arts Degree from the University
of South Florida and has attended
the Florida State University, Cen-
ter for Public Management where
she is a candidate for the designa-


tion of Certified Public Manager.
She is a graduate of the USF, Insti-
tute of Government and is on the
USF, Executive Fellows Alumni
Council.
Ms. Kulpa is licensed by the
Florida Department of Business
and Professional Regulations as
a 'Certified General Real Estate
Appraiser and as a Real Estate
Broker. She is a designated "CFA"
(Certified Florida Appraiser) with
the Florida Department of Rev-
enue, "ASA (Accredited Senior
Appraiser in Ad Valorem) with
the American Society of Apprais-
ers and she is "IAAO Accredited
"with the International Associa-
tion of Assessing Officers. A mini-
mum of 45 hours a year of con-
tinuing education in appraisal and
real estate is mandatory to keep
these licenses and certifications in
good standing and Kristina is up
to date.
She is a long standing mem-
ber of the LaBelle Chamber of
Commerce, the Clewiston Cham-
ber of Commerce, the LaBelle
Heritage Museum, the LaBelle
Garden Club, the Barron Library,
the Hendry County Economic
Development Council, Inc., the
American Business Woman's As-
sociation, Hendry Republican Ex-
ecutive Committee (precinct and
state Committeewoman) and the
LaBelle Rotary Club. Kristina has
been awarded the distinguished
"Paul Harris Fellowship Award"

be admitted into disaster areas in

General News and Information


Have you received your
TRIM notice?
If you are a business owner
and have just received your TRIM
you may have questions regarding
your TPP and Amendment 1.
Amendment 1 states that busi-
nesses with tangible personal
property assets will be required
to file an initial return to qualify.
Thereafter the requirement to file
an annual return is waived unless
the value of your assets exceeds
$25,000.
Some frequently asked ques-
tions have been:
Q: If I have multiple businesses
does this exemption apply to just
one; or all?
A: A single return must be filed
for each site in the county where
the owner of tangible personal
property transacts business.
Q: Do I have to report all of my
assets?
A: All assets used to run the op-
eration/or place of business needs
to be reported with its original
cost. You will not be taxed on the
original cost. Appropriate depre-
ciation factors will be applied to
the original cost.
Q: What if I purchase new
equipment during the year?
A: You must file a return reflect-
ing your new equipment and any
other changes.
Q: If my assets do not make up
$25,000 in assessment value, do I
still qualify for the exemption?
A: Yes, but you still must apply
for the exemption the first year to
be eligible.
If you need additional 'infor-
mation please go to our website:
www.hendryprop.org or call our
office in Labelle 863-675-5270 and

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 Nov. 22, and end at Paho-
kee on Nov. 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 manage
to finish the 9 days.


For further information please
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

OPINION


Speak Out


fourth grade children as they re-
ceive their very own dictionary.
Kristina Kulpa is a American Can-
cer Society Relay for Life spon-
sor/team member and currently
serves Lucy's Angles for Breast
Cancer Care Inc., a non- profit
organization that provides breast
cancer screening for local resi-
dents (www.lucysangels.org).
Kristina Kulpa and her crop
duster husband Steve Fletcher
moved to LaBelle 30 years ago to
pursue Steve's career in agricul-
ture and raise a family in a rural
setting. Their two sons, Walter
Fletcher, is a senior majoring in
business at Florida Atlantic Uni-
versity and will pursue an MBA
after graduation and Spencer
Fletcher, a senior at Admiral Far-
ragut Academy who was selected
by his peers and faculty to be Bat-
talion Staff Commander. He plans
to attend the U.S. Naval Academy
in Annapolis, Maryland upon
graduation next year.
A Combined 30 years of ap-
praisal experience and appraisal
training along with 15 years as
your property appraiser means
Kristina Kulpa is by far the most
logical person to hold this office.
"My expansive base of profes-.
sional skills, education, public
management training and on-the-
job property appraisal experience
makes me uniquely qualified to
continue in this position of public
trust," she said.
Keep a qualified professional
working for Hendry County. Vot-
ing in the general election begins
October 20 and election day is No-
vember 4. Keep Kristina Kulpa as
your elected Property Appraiser.
"Thank you for your continued
support and confidence in me, I
will be honored to serve another
four years."

fore the deadline for filing a petition. The procedures for petitioning tor a hearing are
set forth below. The mediation process described'in Chapter 120 ES. will not be

A person whose substantial interests are affected by the Department's proposed
)ermitling decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57, E.S. The petition must contain the information set
forth below and must be filed (received) with the Department Clerk in the Office of

tion 120.60(3), of the Horida Statutes must be filed within twenty-one (21) days of
publication of the notice or within twenty-one (2t) days of receipt of the written no-
ice, whichever occurs first. Under section 120.60(3) of the Florida Statutes, how-
ever, any person who has asked the Department for notice of agency action may file
a petition within twenty-one (21) days of receipt of such notice, regardless of the
date of publication. The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at
the address indicated above, at the time of filing. The failure of any person to file a
petition within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's
right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569
and 120.57, of the Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this proceeding and participate
as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention (n a proceeding initiated by another

and an explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be affected by
the agency determination;
(ci A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the agency de-
cision;
(d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none, the peti-
tion must so indicate;
(e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific facts
e petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the agency's proposed

versal or modification of the agency's proposed action, including an explanation
of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules or statutes; and
tg) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action
the petitioner wishes the agency to take with respect to the agency s proposed
action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action
is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301. EA.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency
action, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be differ-
ent from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests
will be affected by any such final decision of the Department the Department on the application have
the right to petition to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the re-
quirements set forth above..

HENDRY COUNTY SCHOOL BOARD
Pupil Progression: Promotion/Retention

No student may be assigned to a grade level based solely on age or other factors that constitute social promotion. Florida Statute 1008.25 requires that any
student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading, based upon locally determined or statewide assessments conducted in kindergarten, grade 1, grade
2, or grade 3 must be given intensive reading instruction immediately following the identification of the reading deficiency. The student's reading proficiency
must be reassessed by locally determined assessments, or through teacher observations at the beginning of the grade following the intensive reading
instruction. The student must continue to be provided with intensive reading instruction until the reading deficiency .is remedied.

If a student's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, as demonstrated by scoring at Level 2 or higher on the statewide assessment test In
reading for grade 3, the student must be retained.

The parent of any student who exhibits a substantial deficiency in reading must be notified In writing of the following:
1. That his/her child has been identified as having a substantial deficiency in reading.
2. A description of the current services that are provided to the child.
3. A description of the proposed supplemental instructional services and supports that will be provided to the child that are designed to remediate the
identified area of reading deficiency.
4. That if the child's reading deficiency is not remedied by the end of grade 3, the child must be retained unless he/she is exempt from mandatory
retention for good cause.
5. Strategies for parents to use in helping their child succeed in reading proficiency.
6. That the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT) is not the sole determiner of promotion and that additional evaluations, portfolio reviews,
and assessments are available to the child
to assist parents and the school district in knowing when a child is reading at or above grade level and ready for grade promotion.
7. The districts criteria and policies for mid-year promotion.
8. Each school district shall provide written notification to the parent of any student, who is retained because his/her reading deficiency is not remedied
by the end of third grade, that his/her
child has not met the proficiency'level required for promotion, and the reasons the child is not eligible for a good cause exemption as provided by
Florida law. The notification must include a
description of proposed Interventions and support that will be provided to the child to remediate the identified areas of reading deficiency.

Successful Progression for Retained Readers
The 2004 Legislature amended section 1008.25, Florida Statutes, to create a new paragraph (7) that provides that all students who are retained in third
grade must be provided intensive interventions in reading to ameliorate the students' reading deficiency, as Identified by a valid and reliable diagnostic
assessment. This intensive intervention must include effective instructional strategies, participation in the school district's summer reading camp, and
appropriate teaching methodologies necessary to assist those students in becoming successful readers, able to read at or above grade level, and ready for
promotion to the next grade.
This section also requires each school district to establish at each school, where applicable, an Intensive Acceleration Class for retained third grade students
who subsequently score at Level 1 on the reading portion of the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test (FCAT). The focus of this class shall be to
increase a child's reading level at least two grade levels in one year. The school is required to report the following:

Mid-Year Promotion
According to provisions in the Hendry County School District-Pupil Progression Plan, students who were retained the previous year may be considered for mid-
year promotion provided the student has demonstrated the ability to read at grade level and shows mastery of the state standards for the grade level in which
he/she was retained. The student must have the skills necessary to successfully function at the grade level to which he/she is being promoted mid-year.

Good Cause Exemption from Mandatory Retention
The Hendry County School Board may only exempt students from mandatory retention for good cause as stated in Florida Statute 1008.25. According to
this statute, good cause exemptions shall be limited to the following:
1. Limited English proficient students who have had less than two years of instruction in an English for Speakers of Other Languages Program.
2. Students with disabilities whose individual education plan indicates that participation in the statewide assessment program is not appropriate,
consistent with the requirements of State Board of Education rule.
3. Students who demonstrate an acceptable level of performance on all alternative standardized reading assessment approved by the State Board
of Education.
4. Students who demonstrate, through a student portfolio, that he/she is reading on grade level as evidenced by demonstration of mastery of the
Sunshine State Standards in reading equal to at least a Level 2 performance on the FCAT.
5. Students with disabilities who participate in the FCAT, and who have an individual education plan or a Section 504 plan that reflects that the student
has received the intensive remediation in reading for more than two years but still demonstrates a deficiency in reading, and was previously
retained in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2.
6. Students who have received the intensive remediation In reading for two or more years, but still demonstrate a deficiency ih reading, and who were
previously retained in kindergarten, grade 1, or grade 2 for a total of two years.

The district school board must annually report to the parent of each student the progress of the student toward achieving state and district expectations for profi-
ciency in reading, writing, science, and mathematics. Student results on each statewide assessment must be reported to the parent. The evaluation of each
student's progress must be based upon the student's classroom work, observations, tests, district and state assessments, and other relevant information.

Levee shows "no signs of distress" corps reports


By Nina G. Wills
INI Florida
LAKE OKEECHOBEE -- As
Lake Okeechobee's water levels
continue to rise, the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers is confident
that the Herbert Hoover dike
is prepared to weather any ap-
proaching storms.
"There are no signs of distress
and the system as a whole is
ready," said Steve Duba Jackson-
ville District Chief Engineer.
Rains from Tropical Storm Fay
and Hurricane Hanna caused the
lake to rise 3.84 feet in the last
two weeks.
The lake level now stands at
15.10 feet. Since the danger to the
dike is directly proportional to the
lake level, the corps tries to main-
tain the water level between 12.5
to 15.5 feet.
The increase of inflow into
Lake Okeechobee caused by
these tropical systems prompted
the corps to initiate daily "pulse
releases" on Sept. 4, according
to John Zediak, the corps' chief of
water management.
Currently the corps is releasing

U.S. Army Corps of Engineer officials continue closely monitoring the lake level, following a
sudden increase caused by Tropical Storm Fay.


5,800 cubic feet of water per sec-
ond into the Caloosahatchee and
St. Lucie Rivers. These releases


will continue until Sept. 14.
In 2004, Lake Okeechobee
reached an all-time high of 18.02


feet after the area experienced a
string of storms.
Following the levee disaster in


New Orleans due to Hurricane
Katrina and the excessive amount
of water from Hurricane Wilma,
the corps and the South Florida
Water Management District evalu-
ated the structural integrity of the
143-mile long earthen dike in
2005.
Rehabilitation projects have
been underway since last year to
improve the structure of the dike
and to seal leaks.
The corps considers the por-
tion of the dike from Port Mayaca
to Belle Glade to be "the most vul-
nerable."
Recent repairs to this area in-
clude a 4,000 foot cutoff wall to
stabilize the aging dike's interior
in Port Mayaca.
A cutoff wall is a deep trench
dug into the side of the dike into
which concrete is poured to pre-
vent under-water seepage.
Also, the removal of thousands
of dead melaleuca trees from
Moore Haven to Belle Glade al-
lows engineers to inspect the dike
more closely for potential leaks.
The corps prepares by con-
sulting with the National Weather
Service to determine what the es-


timated water surge on the dike
will be should a tropical system
affect the Lake Okeechobee area.
Also, Herbert Hoover dike is
inspected by corps' engineers on
a weekly basis.
"We will closely monitor
weather conditions and operate
the lake and our water control
structures with public safety being
the primary goal," Zediak said.
While the deadly Hurricane
Ike is not expected to affect South
Florida directly, the corps is con-
cerned about the feeder bands of
rain caused by Ike.
Meanwhile, some residents
say they are not concerned.
Robert (Rock) Hudson, a 10-
year resident of Pahokee, lives
within 1,000 feet of Herbert
Hoover Dike, but is not worried
that the dike will breach.
"They (the corps) sealed the
cracks in the dike. I don't panic,
and I won't lose sleep over it."
Hudson has never evacuated
his home due to an approaching
storm.
"We can't control the weather.
We just have to prepare for it.
What will be, will be," he said.

Agriculture Commissioner
Bronson offers these tips for
people with animals in the event
of evacuations ordered due to a
hurricane.
Mr. Bronson says people trans-
porting livestock must continue
to stop at the Florida agricultural
interdiction stations. If the trans-
porter doesn't have proper pa-
perwork, a movement document
will be issued at the station. The
movement document must be
carried as the animals are moved
into Georgia or Alabama and for
return back into Florida.
Commissioner Bronson says
citizens should not wait until the
last minute to think about how
they are going to deal with pets
and other animals during an evac-
uation or in a power outage. Peo-
ple should not leave their pets be-
hind when they evacuate because
the animals can easily be injured,
lost or killed. Owners should find
out now if local boarding facilities
or veterinary offices can shelter
.their animals in an emergency.
They should also contact hotels
outside their immediate area to
determine which allow animals
and whether there are any size
restrictions.
Pets and small animal safety
*Keep ID tags and vaccina-
tions up to date.
*When evacuating, bring
proper identification and health
papers with you.
*Prepare a pet evacuation
kit, including food and water for
one week, a manual can opener,
medications, medical/vaccination
records, a pet carrier, and bed-
ding.
If evacuated, properly secure
animals in the vehicle.
*If you plan to board a pet,
make written arrangements in
advance.
*Contact hotels and motels
along your evacuation route to
check policies on accepting pets


and keep the list handy.
Horses and livestock
Keep vaccinations and other
health requirements up to date.
*If possible, make arrange-
ments in advance for evacuation
of horses. Know where you can
take your horses for shelter along
your evacuation route.
*Make sure your horse trailer
is "ready to go" or other transport
arrangements are prepared well
in advance.
Carry your vaccination re-
cord, Coggins test and health pa-
pers with you as well as handling
equipment.
*Have a point of destination
before departure and be sure to
evacuate as soon as possible to
avoid traffic delays.
If evacuation is not possible:
Reinforce your barn, and out-
buildings with hurricane straps


further than the present west
coast.
This is because the Florida
Platform's western side gradually
slopes westward.
The Ice Age came to an end
approximately 12,000 years ago.
Global Warming started, and the
ocean levels started rising.
However, the ocean levels
were still much lower than today.
Florida was much drier, void of
lakes, rivers and swamps.
Lake Okeechobee and the Ev-
erglades regions consisted of prai-
ries, scrubs and forest..
Geologists believe Lake
Okeechobee and the Everglades
started later, approximately 6,000
years ago as the sea levels contin-
ued to rise.
Land mammals from North
and South America migrated to
Florida as it emerged from the
sea; some were colossal in size.
What kind of critters do you
think migrated into Florida? This
question will be provided in the
next edition of "A Walk in the
Past."
I hope you enjoyed this story.

and other measures.
*Open gates or remove fenc-
ing so that animals may move to
high ground in a flood and to low-
lying areas during high winds.
Install a hand pump and ob-
tain enough large containers to
water your animals for at least a
week.
*Identify alternate water and
power sources. A generator with
a safely stored supply of fuel may
be essential, especially if you have
electrical equipment necessary to
the well being of your animals.
*Secure or remove anything
that could become blowing de-
bris.

Pahokee wins decisively in season opener


INI/Naji Tobias
Pahokee running back Vincent Smith stiff-arms a Palm Beach Gardens defender for a first
down on a 5-yard pass from Nu'Keese Richardson. Smith led the rushing attack with 12 car-
ries for 73 yards and two touchdowns in the Blue Devils 44-3 victory on Sep. 5.


Most teams win
convincingly,
Clewiston is defeated

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PALM BEACH GARDENS -
Kevin Fleury, the Palm Beach
Gardens Gators head coach, had
a sound game plan for Pahokee.
Fleury knew that in order for
his team to pull off an upset, mis-
takes had to be kept to a bare
minimum.
"We have to keep Pahokee
off the field as long as possible,"
the Gators coach said before the
game.
"We have to limit errors and
generate first downs if we want
to win.
"If our corners don't get
burned, we have a chance here,"
he continued. "We need 11 guys
to the ball as fast as we can."
In short, the game plan didn't
work as the Blue Devils dominat-
ed on all sides of the ball in a 44-3
win over the Gators.
Mustering five first downs and
68 total yards in the game certain-
ly won't get it done against the
defending Class 2B state cham-
_L pior :.
Pahokee's defense was all
over the place, as defensive back
Jarvis Byrd recorded a sack on
Gators quarterback Cody Bonea
in the first half.
The Blue Devils special teams
was very effective as well, high-
lighted by Nu'Keese Richardson's
63-yard punt return for a touch-
down with 4:56 left in the game.
Immediately after Richardson's
touchdown, Palm Beach Gardens
fumbled on a kickoff return as
Pahokee's Curtis Daley forced the
turnover, with Demetrius Dotting
recovering it.
On the offensive front, Richard-


son threw for 113 yards on 11 -for-
17 passing, with two touchdowns
and one interception.
The running game was effec-
tive as Vincent Smith led Pahokee
1,


ardson in the second half.
Dexter Holmes scored the
other touchdown reception, a 13-
yard catch in the first half.
A balanced attack is one of Pa-


was nothing Palm Beach Gardens
could do to stop Pahokee's seem-
ingly unstoppable offense.
"I feel like our offense could've
done more," Richardson said,
noting the three dropped passes
his receivers had in the game.
"Those drops could've been
first downs and we probably
would've scored on those drives.
"I never question our defense,
it's just that our receivers need
to get more aggressive with the
ball," Richardson continued.
"I believe in them and I know
what they're capable of doing."
Blaze Thompson, the Blue
.Devils head coach, praised Rich-
ardson's development as the
team's new starting quarterback.
"(Nu'Keese) Pete's definitely
running the scheme," Thompson
said. "He's not trying to do too
much.
"Pete's been spreading the ball
around," the Blue Devils coach
continued.

Power outages: Counting blessings


By Rev. Samuel S. Thom-
as, Ph. D.+

St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Years ago, I visited the out-is-
lands of the Bahamas and spent
time with a missionary from the
Church of England.
During my visit, the power
went out. The minister explained
that loss of electricity was not un-
common.
Depending on which genera-
tor broke down (there were two
serving the community) you
might be without power, or you
might be without power and wa-
ter.
One of the generators pow-
ered the city water pumps; when
that one went down it was a dou-
ble problem.
It would go out for six weeks


at a time in those days; the time it
usually took to purchase another
generator and get it shipped to
the islands.
He told me of a time when the
generator was purchased in New
York and loaded onto a semi-
trailer, but the truck wrecked in
Georgia and the search had to be
started once more for another re-
placement.
That time power was out for
much longer than the usual six
weeks. Then there was tropical
storm "Fay" that visited here re-
cently.
Around noon on the day of
the storm, power went out in my
home. It was rainy out and there
were squalls, wind gusts that I
later learned reached the speed
requirements to be classified as
"hurricane force."
As I reconciled to being with-

off the new sign telling everyone about their Free Bread

Lake Signs in Okeechobee.


out power for an extended stay,
suddenly electrical trucks started
going up and down my street.
They were looking for the
problem even in the midst of the
storm.
In about three hours, power
was restored.
Given what I know about elec-
tricity and the dangers of operat-
ing in damp conditions, and with
the winds blowing and booms on
trucks likely to be moving about,
this certainly seemed to be an ef-
fort beyond the call of duty. I was
very, very grateful for their efforts.
In reality, the loss of electricity
amounts to an inconvenience for
most of us; it is not the end of the
world.
There is nothing particularly
life-threatening or harmful for
most of us; it's just that we are
"used" to having power to cool


our homes, do our cooking and
provide us with TV.
All too often, when we're
"used" to something we come to
think of it as normal, almost indis-
pensable when it's not there.
My missionary friend shrugged
his shoulders, rolled with the
punches and made alternative ar-
rangements and life went on.
So can I.
I also can appreciate what I
take for granted and count on as
"normal."
Talking about gifts, the author
of Corinthians speaks of the gifts
that come from God.
Paul tells us "You must also
help us by prayer, so that many
will give thanks on our behalf for
the blessings granted us in an-
swer to many prayers (2 Corinthi-
ans 1:11)."
Our prayers are asked for those

All we had to do was nothing


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It was a house their grandpar-
ents built.
Forty years have passed arid
situations changed. Grandma and
Grandpa are gone now, and the
house had been in the hands of
renters for a number of years.
"-, The landlord, their dad, lived
ho`uri-Tway. When dad's age and
health preventecLhimfrom keep-
ing up with what was happening,
he deeded the house to his two
daughters.
Going to the house, the daugh-
ters were shocked. The house was
run down, the carpet was infested
with bugs, and various encroach-
ments had whittled away almost
three acres of the homestead.
Fences had been moved. Auto-
mobiles had been junked.
When asked by friends how all
this had happened, they replied,
"It was easy, all we had to do was
nothing."
Doing nothing is a silent thief


that can rob us of a lot. And like
with the two granddaughters, it
may take a lot of work and effort
to recover what that silent thief
stole.
Proverbs 27:23-24 warns us
about the silent thief this way, "Be
sure you know the condition of
your flocks; give careful attention
to your herds; for riches do not
endure forever, and a crown is
not secure for all generations."
God is saying, "Take good care
of what's important to you. What
you don't take care of, you may
very well lose."
And it's not just possessions, it
can be personal.
There are people who end up
with major health problems; not
because they do terrible things to
their body, but because they just
let their body go.
They end up paying a price for
their neglect.
Neglect can be even more
damaging in our relationships.
We might not have done any-
thing to our mates or children or


parents that's really bad, but may-
be we just haven't done much at
all.
Remember, neglect is the si-
lent thief. Slowly, but very surely,
intimacy is lost, trust is lost, com-
munication closes.
The longer we let things go,
the harder it's going to be to get
them fixed.
It may be time for a priority
check to bring those that we love
and care for back from the mar-
gins into the center of our atten-
tion.
And then there are relation-
ships with God. Many people will
spend eternity away from God,
not because they did something
awful or rejected what Jesus did
on the cross, but because they
simply neglected Him and a rela-
tionship with Him.
They put it off, they made ex-
cuses, and they postponed God,
or just slowly pushed Jesus to the
edges of their schedule and life.
Neglectful damage might also
-result from us. Some years ago-


a friend of mine was killed in a
tragic accident.
We had talked about many
things, but one thing we had
never really talked about was his
relationship with the Lord.
I don't know if he ever gave his
heart to Christ.
All I know is that I never shared
with him about Jesus.
For a follower of Christ, one of
life's most haunting regrets can
be the realization that we never
discussed with a friend or family
member about Jesus while we
had a chance.
Even now my neglect still hurts
when I think of it.
We can't alter the past, but we
can change the future.
Too many people wait one day
too long to get to Jesus.
All we have to do is nothing,
and an eternity is lost.
We can make the difference,
and today may be our last chance
to do it.


The issue of God and "Abortion"


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Last week I dealt with God and
"Gay Rights" and promised that I
would deal this week with the
Abortion issue.
I mentioned that one of our
major political parties favored
both of these issues.
Having dealt with the "Gay
Rights" issue we now turn to the
"Abortion" issue or as they say
"A Mother's Right To Choose." A
right to choose WHAT?
To choose to murder her
baby!
It has often been said that
until it can be determined when
the soul joins the body of a new
baby, abortion cannot be called
murder.
This however, is not the main
concern of the Bible.
The key phrase of Scripture is
found in Genesis 9:4 where we
read "the life thereof, which is the
blood thereof..."
That phrase is the basis for
many other passages that equate


blood with life and that calls the
shedding of blood SIN!
What relation does this verse
have to the problem of abortion?
Just this: that every fetus has
its own blood, arid the shedding
of that blood is as surely the tak-
ing of life as it would be in any
other circumstance.
Before the fetus is three weeks
old, it has a beating heart.
Also, its primitive vessels and
blood are in the process of devel-
oping continuously throughout
the months of gestation.
At no time is that blood the
blood of the mother.
The term "innocent blood"
is used repeatedly throughout
the scriptures, and in each case
it is clear that God attributes very
great significance to that term.
Note the following passages:
Jeremiah 22:3 "... do no violence
to the stranger, the fatherless, nor
the widow, neither shed innocent
blood in this place."
Deuteronomy 19:10 "That in-
nocent blood be not shed in thy
land, which the Lord thy God giv-
eth thee for an inheritance, and so


blood be upon thee."
Proverbs 6:16-17 "These six
things doth the Lord hate ... and
hands that shed innocent blood."
(See also II Kings 24:4; Deuteron-
omy 19:13 & Deuteronomy 21:9.
Except for the blood of Jesus,
there can surely be no blood
more innocent than that of those
bodies being newly formed in the
womb by the hand of God.
The burden of guilt described
in the above passages falls on
anyone responsible for terminat-
ing the life of the unborn.
How can anyone hold that the
tiny body can be alive, but safe to
slay because it may not yet have
received its soul?
Surely God knew what He
meant in Jeremiah 1:5 when He
said, "Before I formed thee in the
belly I knew thee" and the Holy
Spirit, through David makes it
clear that "all my members were
written ... when as yet there was
none of them." (Psalm 139:16).
If Jeremiah or David had been
conceived in our time in history,
could his developing body have
been aborted, and yet he would


not be the victim of murder?
The Bible does not state when
the soul and body are united.
Even if one were to hold that,
just possibly, the soul enters the
body at some later time than con-
ception, would he want to risk the
wrath of God on such an unprov-
able matter, and teach men so?
Yes, some might do so, be-
cause there are so many who do
. not believe the cardinal teachings
of Scripture.
But, for those among us who
still tremble at the Word of God,
the thought that He said to Cain,
"the voice of they brother's blood
crieth unto me from the ground"
(Genesis 4:10), brings with it the
awesome burden of those voice-
less millions in our land whose
innocent blood is being shed year
after year.
Must God visit His judgment
upon us as a nation before we
will recognize how grievous is
this sin in His sight?
The blood of countless mil-
lions cries to God, and it is ON
OUR HANDS!

who have difficult moments,
so that they may give thanks for
God's blessings when the hard-
ships are behind them.
I took that as a call to remem-
ber those who were out working
on our behalf during "hard times"
so when better days come, they
may all share with us the fruits of
the gifts that they bring.
When others pray for us as
we're threatened by storms or
any other difficulties, we need to
remember those who help us get

through them during the worst'.,
moments.
Then, we can all take a mo-
ment to give thanks to God when
the crises are past; those who
were in darkness physically or
spiritually those who prayed for
them, and those who were there
to help.
Sometimes we forget too soon
and go on our way. I hope I don't
do that.
I have so much to be thankful"
for -- so do all of us.

"I ride the bus to work [in
Belle Glade] everyday," said
Mary Broomfield, mother of six.
and a local resident. "I also use
it for medical, church and to get
to Palm Beach to catch the 'big'
Palm Tran."
Broomfield, like many others,
depends on the bus for economic
convenience.
Considering the economic
feasibility of having the route con-
tinue, however, is a more difficult
issue.
"I don't see where we have


the money for this," said District
2 Commissioner Darrell R. Harris.
"There are no grants available.!'
Sensing that the board might
vote to discontinue the route, an-
other constituent spoke up.
Irma Moore said her livelihood
depended on the route.
"I don't have my own car," she
pleaded.
"The bus is good for educa-
tion, employment, medical, and
shopping needs," yet another
resident said. According to her, 40
percent of riders commute from
Belle Glade to Clewiston, 30 per-
cent travel east and the final 30
percent circle the city on the bus
for other practical uses.


At 'least one commissioner
agreed.
Kevin McCarthy, district 4 com-
missioner, also considers the route
efficient and even necessary.
"I think we should find a way
to keep it," Mr. McCarthy said.
He suggests not completely
eradicating the bus route but sim-
ply reducing services or. hours of
operation. He also encourages
modifying other budget items to
satisfy the financial demand for
the Palm Tran Connection. .
McCarthy reports that on any
given month, operation expenses
range from $1,600 to $2,000 dol-
lars per month.
"[Things] are already tight,"


Commissioner Harris reiterated,
reflecting on the general state of
the city, and perhaps the nation
altogether.
Another brooding issue in the
evening's dialogue concerned the
city budget and the rising costs for
constituents. Of particular interest
was the inmate medical fund.
Listed in the 2008/2009-budget
summary as $500,000, the figure
represents a sizeable expense.
Apparently, some medical ser-
vices rendered are provided either
by contracted personnel or by an-
other facility altogether.
If we are paying for indigent
services at this hospital, and the
inmate is being sent to another fa-


cility, what is the purpose of pay-
ing for this hospital in Clewiston
for the inmates, one constituent
asked?
Judi Kennington-Korf, county
administrator, responded, saying
that the Clewiston hospital is not
staffed in such a way as to admin-
ister such extensive services as
an inmate may demand. A more
skilled staff, or additional resourc-
es, is sometimes required de-
pending on the extent of medical
treatment desired, she explained.
* The commission voted 4-1
to set .the tentative millage rate
at 7.7309, which is also the roll
back rate. The roll back rate is
the millage necessary to bring in


the same amount of tax dollars as
the previous year. One mill equals
$2,350,424. Hendry County's cur-
rent millage rate is 6.5 mills. Com-
missioner Darrell Harris was the
sole dissenter in the vote.
"I voted no because for-rent
signs are going up on homes
and businesses all over Hen-
dry County I counted at least
15 businesses just in LaBelle. In
Southwest Florida it's predicted
that 47 percent qf businesses will
have lower payrolls next year. Un-
employment is double in Hendry
County and people can't pay their
taxes."

Clewiston Cougars submit progress report on their 2008 season


1y Keith White
I We had our first game of
jhe season on Saturday, August
23, 2008, against a tough River-
'dale Wildcats group. Our:Junior
i'Pwees" fell short 42-20....The
I'Pwees" lost 35-0...The Junior
Midgets lost 6-0 and our Senior
'Midgetslost 13-0, All the games
'displayed the good sportsmanship
by each team. The kids seemed to
have'reallv enjoyed themselves.,
, We would like to extend our
'heartfelt gratitude to .The Wen-
dy's restaurant in Clewiston who,
donated ice for the players and
cheerleaders. We also want to say
.hanks to the parents who assisted
poard members with the conces-
'ions stand....and of course, we
extend thanks to all our coaches
and board members. We travel to
te high Acres for the next game.
We expect another tough fight
with a sound football team. .'
1 would like to address a
seemingly re-occurring problem
our Cougar program have been
experiencing. There seem to be
issues with sharing the field with
:he Tiger program. I would like to
say the cougar program has been
around for quite some years. All
of our coaches and most par-
ents have put in countless hours
on the cougar practice field in
opes of becoming "superstars."
haring one anecdotal, I can re-
ember playing with the Senior
cougars playing against a tough
Naples Gators team with Head
2oach Nick Smith at the helm.
Fhe Gators were a stingy group
f carnivores with victory in their
sight. Our star running back name
was Titus Dixon who pranced in
ersey #33. Titus scored on an
impressive option play where he
howed pure speed as he beat
wo angling gators to the pylon
for a touchdown. The second half


proved to be tough as each team
punted the ball often. But a new
star would emerge on this night.
it was third and a bunch with the
ball placed on the fifty yard line.
The intended play was a "35 lead"'
with our star running back about
to get the ball. Our quarterback,
Robbie Pitman faked the hand off
and skirted around the right side
on his way to a fifty yard scamper
to the end zone.,This would be
the last touchdown of this game
which led us to victory. We all
left the field with a huge feeling
of accomplishment. Our coaches
told us the game would not come
easy. They conveyed to us we
would cherish our hard work as
a unit when things do not come
easy. I cherish those thoughts to
this day obviously. I am thankful
for those coaches who taught us
life at that early age. God Bless
them.
Well now it is my turn to give
back to the youth what those gen-
tlemen so kindly gave to me and
my pals. I coach with a wonder-
ful crew of guys (Coach Johnny
Jackson, Coach' William Bigham
and Head Coach James Bigham).
The cougar organization is com-
prised of six teams. All the coach-
es do a wonderful job with the
kids. Prior to the beginning of the
season all the coaches and play-
ers have to raise money through
fund raisers and donations to buy
equipment, insurance and other
necessities for the children's safe-
ty while practicing and playing in
the games. Each coach has to at-
tend a mandatory coaches clinic,
pass a background check and pay
a moderate fee before becoming
a. coach. Afterward we are held
to an extremely high standard in
teaching the kids fundamentals
of the game and above all how to
be'good. sportsmen. Win...lose...


or draw, we figure we are shaping
our children in-becoming honest
and-respectable human beings.
Now-the problem we are hav-
ing is being permitted to play on
Clewiston's Cane Field. Last year
we were told at the last possible
minute we would not be permit-
ted to play on Cane Field. This
would have been our first game
of the season. We had completed
a month of preparation which
included, playing a jamboree in
North Ft. Myers. Florida:. The kids
were excited and ready for their
first test against a very good Na-
ples Hurricanes team. Notwith-
standing we were advised by
Athletic Director Larry Antinnocci
we would not be playing on Cane
Field. Our president asked and
pleaded for him to change his
mind. It did not happen for us.
We were faced with paying a
large sum of money in penalty
'for not honoring our schedule.
A little after midnight we were
able to re-schedule the game to
North Ft.. Myers. This re-schedule
nullified our would be earnings
of admission and proceeds from
. our concession stand. But we sal-
vaged our game and avoided be-'
ing penalized for an unforeseen
forfeit.
That was last.year...,this year,
Friday, August 22, on the eve of
our first game, we were once
again informed by the new Ath-
letic Director Coach Roth, that we
would not be permitted to play
on "Cane Field" The field was too
wet from all the rain. After hours
of negotiating, it was determined
only three '(3) teams would be
allowed to play. the next day the
teams who were eligible for play-
offs played. The first game was
completed without the weather
hold for lightning. The second
game went to half time with be-


fore the. weather hold attached.
The third game was played until
it was halted at three minutes and
thirty-three seconds left in the third
quarter for a lightning weather
hold. During this time Coach Roth,
arrived and walked on the field to
access it. Coach James Bigham
(Vice Pres) and Head.Coach for.
the Senior team and President
Charles Felton met Coach Roth
in the center of the field. Other
coaches and I joined them and
it was apparent Coach Roth had

ther playing to cease. His rationale
was the. Tigers would not have a

Dear Fellow Citizens of Hendry County,
It is with genuine sincerity that I feel the next Sheriff of Hendry County should voice the priorities of dutiful service, a commitment to hometown
values, strong and safe families,' secure businesses and the utmost in dedicated community service. As your Sheriff, I will ensure and enforce the
highest standards of professionalism, integrity and the highest respect for human dignity. I hope you will join me in sharing this vision of the
progress needed for a quality criminal justice agency, .worthy of the challenges ahead, asit is long overdue. In these times of critical funding, evolv-
ing criminal elements must be addressed with proactive methods and tools, along with programs that are proven throughout the country. Mere
increases in budgets and stale programs that do not provide measured performance must be retired. I believe the current problems exist with mis-
management, and old methodologies rather than just money. I know with your support, we can make the Hendry County Sheriffs Office unri-
valed in performance and public satisfaction. The people of this county, as well as the employees of the Sheriffs Office deserve much better, and
without a doubt, I can provide it. 1
