Special district asks
for support

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Montura is a
large area with very few houses.
Intrinsically, it is rural -- lead-
ing to a larger issue with crime.
The vast areas of vegetation and
trees obscures illegal ventures
as much as they do the sun; and
some criminals have found it a
perfect seeding ground.
Month after month, house
after.house, the Hendry County


Sheriff's Office puts grow opera-
.tions out of business. Given how
remote the location is, it is sur-
prising how many of these have
been smoked out.
For the people of Montura,
though, it isn't enough.
Leaders representing the
area, members of the Central
County Water Control District,
feel they're being treated like
red-headed stepchildren.
There is crime in Montura,
Chairman Benny Alvarez said,
but only one deputy, and this has
just been a recent addition.
He said the county won't offer


its help because of the existence
of the special water district. And
the sheriff won't offer his help,
Mr. Alvarez added, because all
along he's held firmly onto pow-
er, and has concentrated his ef-
forts on more densely populated
areas.
"We have, law enforcement
now ... until the election is over,'"
said Mr. Alvarez recently in an
interview with The. Clewiston
News. "We will not see another
deputy for another 3-and-a-half
years. It's sad."
By his own adrrmssion, the
chairman said Montura has a


60th Chamber Dinner: At the Clewiston Inn

Commissioners Julio Rodriguez, Joey Miller; Rick Miller join Mayor Mali Chamness in
honoring Hunter Latham, this year's Outstanding Community Service Award recipient.


SChamber celebrates 60th dinner


Latham, HRMC,
Grimsley honored
at event

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Guests en-
joyed a nice dinner, and helped
to honor this year's outstand-
ing local people and businesses
at the 60th Annual Clewiston
Chamber Dinner. Held at the
historic Clewiston Inn on Tqes-
day night, the bustling dining
room was the perfect setting,
for the night's presentations.
Each of the honored guests
was pleasantly surprised at
being acknowledged for their
work in the community.
The first award of 'the
night, the Lifetime Member-
ship Award, was given to Rep.
Denise Grimsley for her work
in the political arena. She has
promoted business in the local


area. and is a member of the-
chamber of commerce'.
"For once, a. politician is
speechless," Rep. Grimslev told
the audience during her brief
comments. "I.very much ap-
preciate this. I'm very humbled
by this." '
Later in the' night,' *Rep.
Grimsley received a second
award, given to her by the Flori-
da Chamber of Commerce
Following the recognition,.
the chamber presented its Out-
standing Community Service
award to Hunter Latham, who
graciously accepted the a \ard.
In presenting the award to
him, Mali Chamness, Clewis-
ton mayor, cited Mr. Latham's
untiring support of residents
and his unselfish willingness to
help others in need.
"Hunter has: been one of
Clewiston's finest goodwill
ambassadors for over 20 years,
always willing to give a help-
ing hand, or do a good deed,
quietly, sincerely, modestly and


with dignity," the mayor said,
flanked by members of the city
commission.
A member of St. Martin's
Episcopal Church, the Lions
Club, he has donated his time
toward productive programs,
including a scholarship pro-
gram. Mr. Latham volunteers
to transport citizens in need of
medical care and has spoken
to more than 15,000 visitors to
Clewiston through Sugarland
Tours.
,' "Thank you so much. I'm
.humbled tonight "because of
some of the people that I fol-
low. Clewiston is a wonderful
town. We're all blessed to live
.here," he said.
The last award of the night
was given to this year's busi-
ness of the year; Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center.
Ex-Officio Chamber mem-
ber Laura Smith presented the
award.

troubled criminal history.
"We got drugs, kids running
around, people stealing, break-
ing and entering, traffic, vehicle
accidents, four wheelers digging
up the road," said Mr. Alvarez.
"But we can't do anything about
it."
There is a point to be made;
the chairman said, that Mon-
tura is centrally located. Having
deputies stationed in the "dead
center" area could significantly
cut down response times for the
outer-lying areas outside of the
major locales of Clewiston and
LaBelle.


"He's not in touch with any-
thing," Mr. Alvarez, who said he
counts on the support of the ma-
jority of his board on the matter.
For Montura leaders, the issue
returns to what was promised --
a deputy 24 hours a day, seven
days a week.
But the sheriff said that was
not the understanding. .
"They've never been prom-
ised that," responded Sheriff
Lee. "But they do have a deputy
assigned there. When help's
needed, other deputies come,
but they have a deputy."

Residents are


urged: "Heed the


Warnings"


By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
Gustav. Hurricane Ike. Tropi-,
cal Depression Josephine. A
departed Fay.
Because they have all come'
and gone with very little impact
to the area, residents are feared
complacent this hurricane sea-
son.. ,
Florida has more coastline
than any other state, which
makes it very, attractive to
storms. By definition, a hurri-
cane is a tropical cyclone with-
winds of 74 miles per hour or,
greater that occurs especially
in the western Atlantic, that is
usually accompanied by rain,
thunder and lightning.
As the storm barreled along
the sea, the Associated Press
reported that Hurricane Ike
strengthened to a Category 4.
A Category 4 hurricane would
have winds between 131 and
155 mph and, on the average,
would usually be expected to
cause 100 times the damage of
the Category 1 storm accord-
ing to the national hurricane
center.
Though Tropical Storm Fay
and Hurricane Gustav slipped
under umbrellas in Southwest
Florida, and Ike continues its
trek to Texas, other hurricanes
this fall may not be so reserved.
Residents are urged to take
proper precautions this season,
notwithstanding the results of
this season's earlier storms.
Patricia Frustace, a repre-
sentative 'from the Red Cross
weighs in.
"You can 'Be Red Cross
Ready' for emergencies in just
three simple steps: 1) Get a
kit, 2) Make a plan and 3) Be
informed.
Visit www.redcross.org/Be-
RedCrbssReady to learn how.
A kit may include extra batter-
ies, flashlights, candles, lighters.


and non-perishable foods to
include water. These steps can
provide a. sense of security as
well as peace of mind for the
safety of loved ones.
"This year, 'Pledge to Pre-
pare.' Pledge to do at least
one thing this month to help,
yourself, your family or your
community be prepared for an
emergency," Ms. Frustace said.
Especially vulnerable are
the Florida Keys since they are
just a few feet above sea level.
Although previous storms were
,expected to, "swipe" the Keys,
President George Bush urged
all citizens to listen to their lo-
cal officials and heed the warn-
ings.
He doesn't have to say that
twice.
Since Hurricane Wilma in
2005, Clewiston has not been
confronted with such disaster.
"I actually think that people
are taking these warnings more
seriously," says a representative
from Ace Hardware, "because
Wilma crept up on us."
The employee had" been
working at Wal-Mart during
Hurricane Wilma and wit-
nessed the retail reaction of res-
idents preparing for the.storm.
She believes it's a staggered re-
sponse now, stating that some
people come into [Ace] to get
Hurricane supplies.
Others, however, don't be-
lieve this season with carry
Wilma's wrath and are com-
placent at best.
Ace Hardware reports that
recent storm supply sales kept
the store fairly busy.

Elephants living on Lake Okeechobee


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum.
The shallow basin encom-
passed an area that was ap-
proximately 40 miles long and
35 miles wide. The basin was
an emerald green carpet of tall,
succulent grasses and pools
of water that dotted the land-
scape, sparkling as diamonds
in the emerald green. The
elevation of the basin's north-
ern fringes rose softly to meet
yet another shallow basin that
stretched serpentine to the
north. The basin's, southern
fringes stopped abruptly, giv-
ing way to grassy prairies and
scrubs that extended south-
ward across the horizon.


A large herd of Mammoths
moved hurriedly, but silently,
following an old game trail
that ran south through the tall
grasses. The herd was led by
an age-old matriarch that had
smelled the acid stench of man,
a smell she knew meant death.
The herd's only safety was to
the southern fringes of the ba-
sin, where the grassy prairies
started. There, ambush was
impossible because a preda-
tor could not hide in the short
prairie grasses. Suddenly, a
stick-like object pierced the
old Matriarch's shoulder; her
leg became immobile, and she
fell.
This story took place in a
prehistoric basin that we now


call Lake Okeechobee. The
Mammoths and other giants
of this age-old saga are extinct.
Their fossilized bones lie in
limestone sediments and on
the lake's bottom as a testa-
ment to their mortality. Today
we are going to take "A Walk in
the Past" and review the parade
of prehistoric animals that once
roamed Lake Okeechobee and
Hendry County.
The Imperial Mammoth and
Columbian Mammoth were in
the elephant family, inhabiting
North and South America. The
Imperial Mammoth stood ap-
proximately 14 feet at the shoul-
ders, weighing 8,000 to 14,000

SFWMD Modifies Water Restrictions


Conservation
remains vital for,
long-term regional
water supply

-West Palm Beach-In re-
sponse to improved regional
water resource conditions, the
Governing Board of the .South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (8FWMD) today modified
emergency water restrictions to
provide agricultural, commercial
and recreational' facilities more
flexibility for water use.
Modifications take- into ac-
count heavy rainfall that has
helped replenish the District's 16-
county system, which received an


average of 22.53. inches of rainfall
so far between July and Septem-
ber.
The emergency water restric-
tions were implemented to pro-
tect public water supply amid a
record-breaking drought and wa-
ter shortage that began in 2006.
In January 2008, the District
implemented one-day-a-week
watering restrictions region-wide
for the first time in the agency's
history,. based on the extreme
water shortage conditions and a
continued rainfall deficit of close
to 25 inches..
The restrictions were later
modified to two-day-a-week wa-
tering.
The District uses its emergency
authority to implement and mod-


ify water restrictions and bases
these decisions on the status of
the region's water resources.
"The Board's action was prudent
given the improved conditions,."
said Eric Buermann, SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman.
"This will help alleviate some of
the challenges faced by agricul-
ture, business and recreational
facilities while still maintaining a
conservation ethic and recogniz-
ing that residential landscapes
have benefited from the summer
rainfall pattern."
I The modified restrictions rec-
ognize that farmers, golf courses,
plant nurseries and related opera-
tions already' have water conser-
vation plans in place that benefit
the regional water supply.


Those plans are required by
the SFWMD before water use per-
mits are approved.
Two-day-a-week residential
landscape restrictions remain in
.place. For residents, the deluge
from Tropical Storm Fay and wet
season rainfall means lawns do.
not need irrigation. Irrigating, on
two days or less is sufficient to
keep lawns healthy.
The residential irrigation mea-
sures do allow .more water for
new plantings; they do not. im-
pact vehicle washing, boat rinsing
or pressure cleaning.
Users of 100-percent reclaimed
water are exempt from the restric-
tions but are encouraged to con-
serve water voluntarily. Conserva-
tion Need Continues to Grow

District takes further
steps to protect
+ public investments

The South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
is implementing initiatives to
strengthen the public process
and safeguard public investments
while negotiating the potential
acquisition of the land and assets
of United States Sugar Corpora-
tion in an historic effort to revive
and restore America's Everglades.
The initiatives are specifically de-
signed to address the significance
and considerable investment of
this River of Grass restoration op-
portunity.
The first initiative calls for an in-
dependent review of the potential
United States Sugar Corporation
transaction by an external group
of financial experts to ensure val-
ue for this investment and a fair
price for South Florida taxpayers.
The District has selected the Duff
& Phelps Corporation to provide
what is known as a "fairness opin-
ion" on the proposed acquisition.
The New York-based firm, which
provides independent financial
advisory and investment banking
services, will deliver an opinion as
to whether the transaction is fair,
from a financial point of view, to
public stakeholders.
The Duff & Phelps group will
scrutinize appraisals, property and
all aspects of the transaction.and
provide an independent report on


the value of the acquisition. The
group's findings will become part
of the public record.
"These actions reflect, this
Board's ongoing commitment to
safeguard the taxpayers of South
Florida," said Eric Buermann,
SFWMD Governing Board Chair-
'man. "These steps provide the
financial assurances that our citi-
zens expect and deserve as the
District negotiates this large, com-
plex and important purchase. In-
dependent reviews add another
layer of expertise to guarantee
that the public receives the great-
est return on its investment."
A second initiative, previously
in use, amends and strengthens
a "Beneficial Interest and Disclo-
sure Affidavit" to provide further
safeguards for taxpayers' monies.
It will be used for all land acqui-
sitions. by the District to support
environmental restoration, water
quality improvements and flood
control efforts. '
The strengthened "Beneficial
Interest and Disclosure Affidavit"
identifies anyone who may ben-
efit from a land purchase with the
District and requires disclosure
of their interest in the transaction
in writing. Florida law already re-
quires parties who have a 5-per-
cent or greater interest to disclose
that information in any land ac-
quisition negotiations with a state
agency.
The District now requires any-
one-regardless of the percent-
age of their ownership stake-to
disclose their interest. The District


also now requires anyone who
stands to profit if a land purchase
succeeds to disclose that gain to
the public. The SFWMD Govern-
ing Board directed the District to
take this additional step to ensure
that all public dollars invested
during a land acquisition are uti-
lized only for acquiring land and
not on consultant's fees or other
undisclosed costs, with the ex-
ception of attorneys' fees.
"Acquiring land for the benefit
of the environment and the peo-,
Sple of South Florida isessential
to the District's mission," said the
SFWMD Director of Land Acqui-
sition Ruth Clements. "These ini-
tiatives will further ensure that all
public money set aside for land is
spent directly on the land itself."
The affidavit wording and for-
mat was approved today by the
Governing Board. Its use is ef-
fective immediately for all land
,acquisitions involving the District.
A copy of the affidavit is available
here: Beneficial Interest and Dis-
,closure Affidavit.
"Together, these initiatives will
further protect taxpayer funds,
enhance accountability and trans-
parency and strengthen the Dis-
trict's, commitment to upholding
and sustaining the public trust,"
said SFWMD Executive Director
Carol Ann Wehle.
As part of a historic plan to
revive the River of Grass, the Dis-
trict is negotiating the acquisition
of as much as 187,000 acres of
agricultural land owned by the
United States Sugar Corporation.


The vast tracts of land in the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area would
be used to reestablish a part of
the historic connection between
Lake Okeechobee and America's
Everglades through a managed
system of storage and treatment
and, at the same time, safeguard
the St. Lucie and Caloosahatchee
rivers and estuaries.
Acquiring the enormous ex-
panse of real estate offers water
managers the opportunity and
flexibility to store and clean water
on a scale never before contem-
plated to protect Florida's coastal
estuaries and to. better revive,
restore and preserve the fabled
River of Grass. The acquisition is
subject to independent apprais-
als, due diligence, financing and
approval by the District's Govern-
ing Board.
For more information about
this historic' Everglades restora-
tion opportunity, visit this District
web site: www.sfwmd.gov/river-
ofgrass.

Local Sheriffs
What is it going to take to
get people to realize that Florida
Highway Patrolmen (FHP) do
not make good sheriffs. For some
reason, people think that they,
FHP, are the "elite" troopers of
the state, but nothing could be
further from the truth. The truth is
that they are only "highway ticket
writers."
They have some expertise in
accident investigation and with
the aid of radar, can determine
who is speeding and write the
appropriate ticket but they are
not "state police." Some states
do have state police who are
well trained and have jurisdiction
within the entire state on all Law
Enforcement matters, but not
Florida. %,
The three "sister" counties,
Okeechobee, Glades, and Hendry
have proven that Highway Patrol-,
men do not make good sheriffs.
They have little or no administra-
tive skills, which is paramount in
the successful administration of
that office.
In all three counties, law en-
forcement has come to a virtual
standstill because the deputies


receive no direction from the
sheriff, who has become nothing
more than a "Figurehead" for the
office.
In fact, were it not for the au-
tonomy of the Deputies, nothing
would get done because they are
the ones really running the depart-
ment and making the decisions.
The sheriff is the highest paid
public official in the County, next
to the supervisor of elections.
Don't you think you should be
getting your money's worth from
this office?
Why would you pay some
one that much money to just sit
around and let his employees do
all the work and make all the de-
cisions? Don't you think it's time
to elect a sheriff who has experi-
ence in all facets of Law Enforce-
ment?
Someone with leadership and
administrative skills other than
"writing tickets?"
Just ask yourself, and answer
fairly, what has the sheriff done
for my county? Just being a "good
ole boy" and allowing the local
gun club access to the gun range,
isn't good enough.
It's your money, what do you
expect it to do for you?

Hybrid cars and hybrid religions


'By The Reverend Samuel
S.Thomas, Ph. d.
.'Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My friend's old Volkswagen re-
quired more and more repairs as
it got older.
As the bolts would rust, every
now and then they would break
when it was being disassembled.
We had metric wrenches that
were the right sizes for working
on it, but no metric taps or dies to
replace the broken bolts.
Instead, we used what we had
on hand English S.A.E. taps and
*.bolts.
They worked fine and the car
r ran great, maybe even better than
_ before we worked on it.
One day my friend sold the
car.
I wondered how long it would
be before the new owner called
to ask "What gives?"
It had to be taken apart and re-
assembled in a certain sequence
thereafter or there would be parts
left over and the car wouldn't
run.
Maybe his VW was among the
' first "hybrid" cars in the country.
Combining two traditions and
sources got him where he needed
to go.
Throughout my ministry, I've
. encountered people who regard


the Christian religion as separate
from the Old Testament faith.
They like to read the Bible sto-
ries of the Old Testament heroes
and about the miracles that took
place in pre-Christian times, but
see that period only as only his-
tory.
This ignores the important
roots and heritage that we receive
from those of an earlier time.
The Lord made it clear that He
did not come to "abolish the Law
or the Prophets. I have come to
fulfill them (Matthew 5:17)."
The Lord's Prayer has been at-
tributed to the Jewish Midrash, an
Old Testament interpretation of
scriptures.
The Lord went to Jerusalem to
celebrate the Passover meal with
His disciples and it was to be His
"Last Supper" that has been cel-
ebrated ever since.
The Bible also tells us that "Be-
hold I make all things new (Rev-
elation 21:5)" but that doesn't
mean that newness is created out
of a vacuum.
Why should such things mat-
ter today?
While in Miami, I attended an
annual clergy conference hosted
by one of the older synagogues
each year.
The Jewish scholars who were
brought in were learned profes-


sors and men of great faith.
One year, the conference
dealt with religious persecutions;
something known to many reli-
gious bodies and many faiths.
Persecutions rely of separate-
ness, differences; characteristics
that are seen in one group but not
another.
Sometimes there are jealou-
sies involved, sometimes there
seems to be something threat-
ening about another identifiable
group.
Was Christianity founded by
the Lord to be different, radically
different from its Old Testament
heritage, or was the Old Testa-
ment faith fulfilled and as one of
my professors used to say "raised
to the Nth degree"?
In reality, Christians may be the
first "hybrid" of faiths; combining
old and new, having parts that
were no longer the same but re-
fitted in a new way so that things
would run smoothly and get us
where we wanted to go.
Make no mistake about it; it is
still the same faith in God; now
presented to "run" more efficient-
ly and take us to our final destina-
tion.
I suggested that we are not of
a different faith; but a reformed
direction of the older faith; and
that being seen as such might be


more accurate if we were under-
stood as part of the same family
of faith.
The plea was that we honor
our heritage and what has been
given to us; and that we under-
stand each other as divisions of
something from God that we all
share in common.
We are not so many different
families as different members of
the one family.
Maybe that has something to
do with ending wars one day or
helping keep peace at home or
having people get along better
everywhere.
It doesn't keep us from believ-
ing what is revealed to us or limit
God's gifts to His people; may-
be it will help things run more
smoothly.
The old VW ran quite well and
never was confused for anything
but what it really was; just adopt-
ing some accommodations to
keep it doing its appointed tasks.
Probably it is still running; they
were reliable means of transpor-
tation.
Maybe it was a lesson from an
old "hybrid" to those who owned
it about revisions and combina-
tions to take us where we need
to go.


'Always and forever in the hearts of our youth


By Pastor John Hicks
'First United Methodist Church
It was a sad event what hap-
Spened that day, that made so
many people go away. And it
kindled almost all the way down,
and still 5,000 lives have not been
found.
And Lord, be our children's
mentor help us teach them right
'from wrong. And help us, Lord, to
'still hold strong.
The above was part of a poem
,written by then eighth grader
Kristin Way in 2002 in response to
what happened on Sept. 11, 2001.
In the hearts of our youth lies the
future of our nation. I was im-
pressed with her and other youth
as we all came together and re-
membered.
People from all backgrounds,
from all races, from all politi-
cal affiliations, from all different
churches young and old, rich
S Land iRpo a,, e together to re-
Smember ihoue who ha0 fallen;
ana to onor he firefighters, po-
-lice, emergency service and mili-
tary personnel who served and
continue to serve in situations of
need in our communities and na-
tion. It was a time when the spirit
of patriotism was alive and flow-
ing as thanked God and remem-


bered these special people.
But what happens when we
stop remembering what once
was important to us? If we stop
remembering or stop sharing
what we remember, then future
generations might be uninformed
of significant things. that shaped
our lives and theirs.
When Captain Peterson's
Clewiston High School Criminal
Justice Class talked about what
happened in September of 2001,
several of the students comment-
ed that they were in the fifth grade
at the time, and all they remem-
bered were that several buildings
went down. How soon we forget
when we don't continue to pass
on remembrances over the years.
The students undertook as a
class project to research the event
of the Sept. 11th tragedy. They
were visibly moved by the videos
they watched, but more ques-
;tions arose, as; to: why we slopped
remembering or honoring .alMof
the emergency:'ervice personnel
today like we did in the first years
following the attack. Good ques-
tion.
In response, the class decided
to put on a program to remember
and to honor our emergency ser-
vice personnel on Sept. 11 of this


year. I was privileged to attend
this special program honoring
these "heroes" last week. More
touching than the moving presen-
tation based on the 31 words of
the pledge of allegiance and the
recognition of our firefighters,
law enforcement, and emergency
service people was the heart and
the spirit of these young people.
In the hearts of our youth lies the
future of our nation. With these
youth and others like them, we
have a hope and a future.
Something else that is impor-
tant to remember and pass on
to future generations is our faith.
How soon we forget when we
don't take time to remember or to
share with those around us. Jesus
Himself gave us some practices to
do "in remembrance of Him."
If we stop doing things in
remembrance or sharing our
beliefs, then future generations
might be uninformed of signifi-
cant things that shaped our liits
and could affect theirs.
When we do things in remem-
brance, we bring to the front
burner thoughts and memories
of something or someone impor-
tant, and that importance is im-
printed on the minds and hearts
of our youth and children. In the

Bishop Dewane named to social Justice organizations


VENICE-Bishop Frank J. De-
wane of the Catholic Diocese of
Venice is serving on two impor-
tant social justice organizations
which have significant impact on
the lives of rural residents and im-
migrants in the United States.
After two years as a board
member of the National Catholic
Rural Life Conference (NCLRC),
a Catholic organization which
seeks solutions to critical issues
facing rural populations, Bishop
Dewane has been elected presi-
dent of the board.
He has also recently been ap-
pointed to the board of the Cath-
olic Legal Immigration Network
Inc. (CLINIC), a Washington,
D.C.-based group that works to
enhance and expand delivery of
legal services to indigent and low-
income immigrants,


Bisnop Dewane.


Founded in 1923 the NCLRC is
charged with helping rural people
and farm families shape their own
destinies through spiritual, educa-


tional and advocacy assistance.
The organization also supports
local businesses that promote
sustainable community develop-
ment.
CLINIC was established in
1988 by the United States Confer-
ence of Catholic Bishops (USC-
CB) to support a network of 173
diocesan and community-based
immigration programs, many of
them in agricultural areas, in 48
states including Catholic Charities
USA Inc.
"I hope that my personal ex-
periences and my experiences in
dealing with social issues will as-
sist both organizations continue
to help people in the rural com-
munities throughout the United
States, especially during these
economic hard times," said Bish-
op Dewane.


Bishop Dewane, who brings
considerable personal and pasto-
ral experience with farm life and
social justice issues, can make a
difference.
Born and raised on a Wiscon-
sin dairy farm, he has retained the
basic lessons learned in a rural
childhood, especially an apprecia-
tion for life and the environment.
These experiences have helped
mold the Bishop into the man he
is today, and they have provided
.the basis for his work for world
peace and justice.
Before becoming the spiritual
leader of more than 237,000 Cath-
olics in Southwest Florida, then-
Monsignor Dewane served for
several years as Under Secretary
of the Vatican's Pontifical Council
for Justice and Peace.
As Under Secretary, he carried


the Vatican's messages of social
justice and peace to conferences
and international conventions
across the globe on issues such
as environment and develop-
ment, women, racial discrimina-
tion, poverty, human rights, social
justice and water.
The need for assistance in ru-
ral and agricultural areas can be
shown in the most recent U.S.
Census estimates, which state
that more than 8 million rural
residents live in poverty.
In Florida, more than 300,000
of the 1.2 million rural people live
in poverty.
These numbers, gathered pri-
or to the recent economic down-
turn, emphasize the importance
of having Catholic social service
organizations address these criti-
cal issues.


Another indicator of difficult
times is the unemployment rate
which is 6.1 percent in the Unit-
ed States, the highest level it has
been in five years.
However in some parts of ru-
ral America, the rate can be as
high as 15 percent.
Areas impacted by extreme
drought or extreme flooding have
been particularly hard hit in the
past few months.
Bishop Dewane is the spiritual
leader for the 10-county Diocese
of Venice which serves the Catho-
lic population of Southwest Flori-
da through 57 parishes, 14 Catho-
lic schools and other entities.

the Communications Department
of the Diocese of Venice at 941-
486-4702.


Using Internet search engines

Seniors use the Internet to
get information about lots of
subjects.
While the Internet is a vast

search engines and what they

narrow your search down; plus


you can do a string of excluded
words, like this:
Video -music -fight (yes, put
a space before the minus sign).
Now that you know how to
eliminate search terms, here's
how you can add them in, us-
ing the "+" (plus) symbol. For
example, if you have terms that
must be returned in all your
search results, you can place
the plus symbol in front of the
terms that you need included,
such as:
Football +nfl
Your search results would
now have both. these terms in-
cluded.
Using the plus and minus
symbols is just a small part of a
successful Web search strategy.
Be as specific as humanly pos-
sible. Search engines are not
intuitive and will not be able to
figure out that when you type in
"jewelry," you actually are look-
ing for "handmade freshwater
pearl watches."
Using quote marks around
the phrase ensures that the
search engine will only give back
results where that exact phrase
is used.
Don't be timid about telling a
search engine specifically what
it is that you are looking for, and
using different techniques (in dif-
ferent ways) to get better results.
The old adage, "if you don't
succeed, try, try again,", works
with search engines
Try several search engines
if the information retrieved just
doesn't give you what you're
looking for.
Happy computing. "

Displaying tobacco products



for sale in state of Florida


By Mary Ruth Prouty
Did you know that Florida law
prohibits customers from having
direct access to tobacco prod-
ucts?
What does that mean?
It means all tobacco products
must be behind the counter so
customers have to ask for them in
order to purchase them.
This gives the clerk the ability
and the responsibility to ask for
identification for age.
The legal age to purchase to-
bacco products in Florida is 18.
The next time you are in a
convenience store or at any re-
tailer who sells tobacco products,
check it out.
There are a lot of stores who
do not follow the law.
This seems to be especially
true when it comes to flavored
tobacco like grape, vanilla or
chocolate cigars. I have seen them
right in front on the counter.
How about you?
Check out the signs while you
are at a convenience store as
well.
The tobacco companies spend
over 13 million dollars every day
to attract new smokers.
The tobacco companies know
they have to attract new users
(to replace those who have quit
or died) and tOh, -also know for'
the majority of people if you don't
start by age 18, you'll never start.
Who do you think the tobac-
co companies are marketing to
when they sell flavors?
Adult smokers usually have
their favorite brand and are not
interested in sweet flavors.
Teens are interested because
the flavors don't sound like they
would be as dangerous.


INI/Ashley Smith
Be wary of stores selling tobacco products where they are
easily accessible to minors.
All the poisons and carcino- Don't be fooled and don't let
gens are still there, they are just your teens be fooled!

The issue of God and Global Warming


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Having 'just dealt with two hot
topics, "Gay Rights" and "Abor-
tion," I thought I might tackle an-
other one, "Global Warming."
The evidence clearly indicates
that our globe is experiencing a
warming trend.
But what is the cause of this
trend?
Are we experiencing a normal
long-term warming/cooling cycle,
or is something new taking place:
warming caused by human activ-
ity?
On the increase are those who
predict catastrophe if the people
and nations of the world do not
take immediate-drastic steps.
Such dire predictions are noth-
ing new on planet earth.
Remember the grave warnings
preceding the year 2000?
All the hype about Y2K "the
millennium bug," was just an-


other in a long series that never
materialized.
Before this Communism was
the cause for world alarm. Today,
militant Islamic terrorism is the
threat. There always seem to be
prophets predicting a dire future.
According to current comput-
er predictive models, how warm
will the earth become by 2050, by
2100?
Will so much ice melt on
Greenland and Antarctica that the
oceans inundate vast costal areas
with millions of inhabitants?
Will the increasing heat cause
drought and famine, wiping out.
huge populations?
Could global warming threat-
en the end of life as we know it?
What does the Bible have to
say about it all? Does it predict
global warming?
Definitely!
Tremendous heat? More than
civilization can tolerate! Destroy-
ing the earth? Absolutely!
"The day of the Lord will come


as a thief in the night; in the which
the heavens shall pass away with
fervent heat, the earth also and
the works that are therein shall be
burned up" (II Peter 3:10).
Of course, that is not the glob-
al warming people are concerned
about..
But why not?
Which of the following three
scenarios is more pertinent to our
daily lives and our futures?
1. Mankind may end civiliza-
tion with nuclear bombs; or 2.
Mankind may destroy life on earth
by disregarding the global warm-
ing trend; or 3.
The God who created the earth
will one day burn it up.
Which of the three should sen-
sible people be more concerned
about?
Do you realize that scenarios
one and two are materialistic
concerns, while issue three is a
spiritual concern?
No matter what humans do
to "save planet earth," God has


scheduled the planet for destruc-
tion, and God has scheduled us
for judgment.
In verse 9, Peter says that
the Lord is "not willing that any
should perish, but that all should
come to repentance."
And verse 11 says: "Seeing
then that all these things shall be
dissolved, what manner of per-
sons ought you to be in all holy
living and godliness."
God calls us to make more
drastic changes than recycling
plastics and burning less fossil
fuels.
God is calling us to quit cheat-
ing, lying, stealing, fighting, drink-
ing, gambling, complaining,
aborting babies, having affairs,
living luxuriously and the like.
God is calling us to live holy
lives, spiritual lives, lives that put
Christ first, others second, and
material things last.
Are you ready for God's day of
global warming?

In the Matter of an Application for Permit by:
Mr. Trevor Cook, Vice President of Operations Glades County AP

Palmetto, Florida 34221
INTENT TO ISSUE A FEDERALLY ENFORCEABLE STATE OPERATING PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection (Department) gives notice of its intent
to issue a Federally Enforceable State Operating Permit (FESOP), (copy of Draft
permit attached) for the proposed project, detailed in the application specified
above for the reasons stated below.
The applicant, Atlas-Transoil, Inc., applied on July 3, 2008, to the Department for a
renewal air operation permit for its South Florida Thermal Services facility located
at 1 Foxmoor Lane, Moore Haven, Forida 34221, Glades County. The permit au-
thorizes Atlas-Transoil, Inc. to operate a thermal soil remediation uit ilizing a
rotary kiln. The facility has the potential to emit 98 tons per year (tP) of volatile
organic compounds, 46.7 TPY of sulfur dioxide, 34.5 TPY of nitrogen oxide,
10.46 TPY of carbon monoxide, and 10.45 TPY of particulate matter. The facility
is synthetically limited to not exceed 98 TPY of Volatile Organic Compounds
(VOC) The owner or operator shall not exceed the VOC emission limit by limiing
the hours of operation and by recordkeeping of contaminated soil VOC content.
The Department has permitting jurisdiction under the provisions of Chapter 403,
Florida Statutes (FS.), and orida Administrative Code (EA.C.) Chapters 62-4,
62-210, and 62-212. The above actions are not exempt from permitting proce-
dures. The Department has determined that a Federally Enforceable State Air Op-
erating Permit is required for this project.
The Department intends to issue this air operation permit based on the belief that
reasonable assurances have been provided to indicate that operation of these
emission units will not adversely impact air quality, and the emission units will
comply with all appropriate provisions of Chapters 62-4, 62-204, 62-210,
62-212, 62.296, and 62-297, F.A.C.
Pursuant to Section 403.815, ES., and Rule 62-110.106(7)(a)1., FA.C., you (the
applicant) are required to publish at your own expense the enclosed
of Intent to Issue a Federally Enforceable State- oerating Permit. The notice shall
be published one time only in the legal advertisement section of a newspaper of
general circulation in the area affected. Rule 62-110.106(7)(b), F.A.C., requires
that the applicant cause the notice to be published as soon as possible after noti-
fication by the Department of its intended action. For the purpose of these rules,
"publication in a newspaper of general circulation in the area affected" means
publication in a newspaper meeting the requirements of Sections 50.011 and
50.031, ES., in the country where the activity is to take place. If you are uncertain
that a newspaper meets these requirements, please contact the Department at the
address or telephone number listed below. The applicant shall provide proof of
publication to the Department of Environmental Protectin, Post Office Box 2549,
Fort Myers, Florida 33902-2549, [Telephone: (239) 332-6975, Fax:
(239) 332-6969). You must provide proof o publication within seven days of
publication, pursuant to Rule 62-110.106(5), EA.C. No permitting action for
which published notice is required shall be granted until proof of publication of
notice is made by furnishing a uniform affidavit in substantially the form pre-
scribed in Section 50,051, FS. to the office of the Department Issuing the permit.
Failure to publish the notice and provide proof of publication may result in the de-
nial of the permit pursuant to Rules 62-110.106(9) & (11), F.A.C.
The Department will issue the final permit with the attached conditions unless a re-
sponse received in accordance with the following procedures results in a different
decision or significant change to terms or conditions.
The Department will accept written comments concerning the proposed permit issu-
ance action for a period of fourteen days from the date of publication of Publil

er means by the Petitioner.

Clewiston Christian School Students attend SFWMD meeting


On Septem-
ber 10, students
from Clewis-
ton Christian
School par-
ticipated in the
South Florida


W4ter Management District meet-
ing in West Palm Beach. The
mere presence of students at this
meeting, where particulars about
the potential sale of the U.S. Sugar
Corporation assets to the SFWMD
were being discussed, created a


stir in the crowded auditorium of
over 100 people.
Ten students and numerous
parents joined the caravan from
Clewiston to West Palm Beach
to assure that the interests of our
community were acknowledged.


It was a real learning opportu-
nity for the students who had'
never attended such a govern-
mental meeting before. Two of
the students, Alexa Mickler and
Jonathan Hatton, addressed the
entire assembly with requests


to remember the Clewiston and
Glades communities as the Board
made their decisions.
Even though the students ini-
tial reaction was that the meeting
was boring, they realized the im-
portance of being involved in gov-


ernmental affairs and that their
very presence sent a message to
the Water Management Board
that even children would be will-
ing to speak out.about the future
of our community.

Glades Central dominates in home victory


Glades Day, Pahokee
also win big during
Friday contests

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE The Palm
Beach Central Broncos knew that
playing Glades Central was going
to be a tough test for them.
What they probably did not
think, however, was that Jon Bos-
tic, Palm Beach County's top over-
all prospect, would be thoroughly
ineffective against the Raiders.
In the Raiders 36-7 blowout
win over the Broncos, Bostic was
held to just seven yards on six car-
ries.
While Bostic played defense at
outside linebacker, Glades Central
prevented him from being a ma-
jor factor throughout the contest.
Glades Central's offense was
just simply dominant as Leron
'L.J.' Thomas was 10-for-16 pass-
ing with 204 yards and three
touchdowns in the Sept. 12 con-
test.
Rantavious Wooten, a fu-
ture LSU wide receiver, caught
Thomas's first touchdown pass
with 29.9 seconds left in the first
quarter.
That came after an Andre Ed-
wards interception return with
40.6 seconds left in the first.
With 8.2 seconds left in the
quarter, Glades Central's Hygens
Succes scored on a 33-yard inter-
ception return to put the Raiders
up 14-7.
Fred Pickett, who has recently
picked up offers from Florida
State and West Virginia, caught


a 10-yard touchdown pass with
3:59 left in the second quarter.
The Raiders defense put on
display a combination of speed
and power, something that Palm
Beach Central just couldn't han-
dle.
Glades Central forced three
interceptions in the game, while
allowing just 141 total yards on 43
plays.
Palm Beach Central averaged
just 3.27 yards per play, passing
and rushing combined.
Glades Central allowed only
six first downs in the game to
Palm Beach Central.
Wooten, who led all receivers
with three receptions for 79 yards,
scored again in the third quarter -
a 23-yard pass from Thomas.
Vinny Jones, one of Glades
Central's running backs, scored
on a 4-yard touchdown run in
the third quarter to complete the
scoring for the game.
Antonio McCloude led all
rushers with 89 yards on 13 car-
ries, even though he did not score
a touchdown.
Antwon Chisolm didn't play
against Palm Beach Central due
to injury.
He's out for the next game
against Palm Beach Gardens but
will return for the Sept. 26 show-
down with Clewiston in the Sugar
Bowl.
Though Glades Central domi-
nated in this contest, the most im-
pressive stat perhaps came from
the penalties area..
Palm Beach Central actu-
ally had more penalty yards than
Glades Central (55-50), something
the Raiders can be happy with.
Glades Central has a 2-0 record
going into their next home game


against Palm Beach Gardens,
while Palm Beach Central is 1-1.
Glades Day 34, Benjamin 0:
Kelvin Taylor, the son of NFL Pro
Bowler Fred Taylor, led the Gators
rushing attack with 14 carries for
111 yards and two touchdowns.
The eighth-grader is now the
starting running back for Glades
Day after Brandon Dean, a senior,
suffered untimely injuries to his
ACL and MCL, effectively ending
his season.
The Gators offense, engineered
by quarterback Bo Schlecter, had
no turnovers as he was 8-for-
13 passing with 172 yards and a
touchdown.
Senior wide receiver Deandre
Jackson, Schlecter's go-to guy,
led all of Palm Beach County last
week with five receptions for 118
yards and a touchdown.
Glades Day also recorded an
astounding 12 first downs in their
thoroughly dominant game.
Tomorrow night, Glades Day
(2-0) looks to impose its will on
Clewiston as they travel to Cane
Field.
The state's No. I ranked team
in Class 1A will be competing
against a team that has come off a
23-6 win over LaBelle, led by Dar-
ris Hughes' area-leading 244 rush-
ing yards and three touchdowns
last week.
Expect tomorrow's battle to
be a very close game, with domi-
nating performances by both Tay-
lor and Hughes.
The team who has the fewest
turnovers should win this con-
test.
Pahokee 40, King's Acad-
emy 7: Senior quarterback
Nu'Keese Richardson led the way
once again as he three for three

touchdown passes, two to fellow
senior Dexter Holmes (4 recep-
tions, 111 yards).
Richardson, who went 13-19
for 263 yards and an interception,
also scored a rushing touchdown
in the game.
Vincent Smith, arguably the
area's best running back, led the
ruiching aattak Awith 19 carripc for


81 yards and two touchdowns.
Junior wide receiver Dennis
Hall, a cousin of Pahokee alum
and NFL Pro Bowler Anquan Bol-
din, caught three passes for 57
yards and a touchdown.
Tomorrow night, the Blue Dev-
ils (2-0) look for another blowout
victory, this time against Palm
Rarch Ilakes who was white-


washed by Glades Central 54-0
just two weeks ago.
For the state's top team in Class
2B, tomorrow's game will come
just two weeks before Pahokee
travels to Byrnes, S.C. to play the
nation's top-ranked team, accord-
ing to USA Today.

Tiger wideout Damion Smith pulls in a sideline pass to stop the clock


By Jeff Barwick
The Clewiston Tigers got their
first win of the young 2008 season
on Friday night as they outran and
out defended the LaBelle Cow-
boys at Cane Field.
The victory was also another
first that being Tiger Head
Coach Joe Roth's initial victory.
The Tigers squared their re-
cord at 1-1 and LaBelle fell to 0-2.
The fans got an early glimpse
of what was in store for. the eve-
ning when Tiger tailback Darris
Hughes took the handoff on the
first play of the game and raced
untouched for a 65-yard touch-
down.
The extra point attempt by
kicker Isandro Marquez was just
off the mark.
LaBelle took the following kick-
off and mounted a drive down to
the Tiger 25 but handed the ball
over on downs at that point.
The rest of.the opening period
was a matter of punt exchanges.
Clewiston punted again on
the second play of the second pe-
riod and the Cowboy return man
muffed the ball and Tiger Dillon
Irey was there to pounce on it at,
midfield.
After a short gain and a 10-
yard holding penalty against
Clewiston, .Hughes took another
handoff and this time went up the'
middle, swerved to the sidelines
and rolled 57 yards for another
score.
Isandro's extra point kick was'
perfect and the Tigers were on
top, 13-0.,
The Cowboys went three and
out and a short punt gave the Ti-
gers good field position at their
35.
Fullback Leonard Newton
bulldozed for 10 yards but the
Cowboy defenders stripped the
ball at the end of the run.
Cowboy sophomore quarter-
back Marcus Simmons scrambled
from pass formation and then
found tailback Kane Owens wide
open and threw a strike.
Tiger defensive back John Wil-
liams made a touchdown saving
tackle, giving the Cowboys a first
and goal at the one.
The Tiger defense then made a
textbook goal line stand.
They stopped two running
plays for no gain and then line-
backer Duke Ewan sacked Sim-
mons for a four-yard loss and a
fourth down pass from Simmons


fell incomplete.
The Tiger offense then got to
show their stuff, taking the ball at
their five-yard stripe with 4:39 re-
maining in the half.
Mixing the strong running
game of Newton and Hughes and
five pass completions by Mar-
quez, Clewiston moved the ball
90 yards to the Cowboy 5.
As time ran out, Marquez split
the uprights with a 23-yard field
goal to push the Tigers to a 16-0
lead.
LaBelle finally found some
.consistent offensive spark as they
started the second.half.
Simmons completed a short
pass to wideout Dorian Deas,
then he scooted for 10 yards and
then he hit Deas in the flats with
a swing pass and Deas weaved
through the Tiger secondary for a
47-8-yard touchdown.
The extra point attempt was
marred by a high snap and the
kicker grabbed the ball and was
covered by Tigers to snuff out the
effort.
The Tigers then put together
an 11 play drive that chewed over
five minutes off the game clock
but ran out of steam at the Cow-
boy 35, turning the ball over on
downs.
On their first down, LaBelle
quarterback Simmons' pass was.
intercepted by Tiger linebacker
Leonard Newton who returned
the ball 20 yards to the Cowboy
18.
Clewiston could not take ad-
vantage of such good field posi-
tion and gave the ball back on
downs.
The Tiger defense then held
the Cowboys three and out, forc-
ing a punt from their end zone.
The ball went out of bounds
at the LaBelle 48 and on the, next
play, Darris Hughes was off to the
races for his third score of the
game with 33 seconds remaining
in the third period.
Isandro Marquez' point after
kick was good and ended scoring
for the night.
Darris Hughes amassed 244
yards rushing on 17 carries and all
Tiger runners rolled for 317 rush-
ing yards.
Quarterback Isandro Marquez
completed 10 of 19 passes and
had no interceptions.
He used virtually all of his re-
ceivers. Wideout Jamarcus Smith
caught 4 for 36 yards and flanker


Damion Smith snagged 3 for 22
yards.
The Tiger defense was tough,
holding the Cowboys to 38 yards
rushing on 29 tries. The Cowboy
passing game fared better with
143 yards on 8 completions out of
13 throws..
However, two of the catches
accounted for 91 of those yards.
Newton led the defense with 7
tackles, a shared quarterback
sack and the interception.
Linebacker Dillon Irey had. .5
tackles, two sacks and a fumble
recovery.
About the only negative on
the Tiger performance was in the
penalty arena.
The Tigers were flagged to
times for 91 yards, with most of
that being on the offense.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth was
happy to ring up the first Tiger
win of the year.
He said, "We are proud of this
team. They've worked hard and
it paid off tonight. This was good
for us and will help with our con-
fidence level. But, we've still got
worklto do and we'll get started
on that tomorrow."
Hughes was excited after the
game.
"Our offensive line did a great
.job tonight and opened holes,"
he said.
"Once I got open on those long
runs, all the work we've been do-
ing on speed really paid off," he
added. .
Next. up, the Tigers will host
the undefeated and loaded Glades
Day Gators at 7:30 p.m. on Friday
night.
Clewiston, with' only 26 play-
ers on the varsity roster, appears
to be in good physical shape for
the contest.

Montura
Continued From Page 1

When it all boils .down to it,
the sheriff's office simply doesn't
have the resources to support
placing an additional deputy in
Montura. Although he would like
nothing more than to locate ad-
ditional deputies, it just isn't fea-
sible, the sheriff said.
Even so, the county has not
ignored Montura. The sheriff's of-
fice has reported countless drug


houses being busted, many thou-
sands of illegal drug plants and
sophisticated grow operations
have been eradicated.
This is a far cry from ignoring
Montura, sheriff's officials say.
With its financial situation
looking positive despite a depress-
ing economy elsewhere, Montura
is easily able to afford an expense
as small as an additional, deputy,
the sheriff argues.
"They were going to supple-
ment the sheriff's budget for an-
other deputy, but decided not to,"
the sheriff said.


Should taxpayers in other cit-
ies have to foot the bill when
Montura can afford it itself?
It seems that some on the
board would say a "reserved" no.
Mr. Alvarez had reservations
regarding funding the position,
but he felt concerned enough
about the community to put them
aside and urge his fellow board
members to reconsider.
Taking a look at the illegal
dumping problem faced by Mon-
tura, it would be cheaper to pay
for an additional deputy than hav-
ing to deal with the trash, Mr. Al-


varez believed.
Approximately $60,000 would
pay for an additional deputy, cov-
ering salary, benefits, insurance
and fuel, among other expenses.
In the end, the issue went be-
yond simply dollars and cents, to
whether the contract made sense
to board members.
When he found out that the
deputy could be called out of
Montura if the sheriff needs him,
Mr. Alvarez put his foot down.
The sheriff, however, contends
that all law enforcement person-
nel, even those funded by com-


panies such as U.S. Sugar, Hilliard
and Port. LaBelle authority, are
required to assist emergencies if
needed.
Some at the sheriff's office
wonder about the board's con-
cerns. Why now, just a few weeks
from the November election that
will decide who the sheriff will be
for the next four years?
"You see this every election
year, people complain, deputies
have complaints filed against
them," said one top official with
the sheriff's office. "Believe me,
if the sheriff could have another


deputy out there, he would."
Some Montura board mem-
bers defend the sheriff on most
issues, however.
"I'm not saying he's a bad
sheriff," said Jessie Necolettos,
who sits on the Montura board. "I
give him a thumbs up, he's done
a hell-of-a-job with crime, but he
gets a thumbs down on this."

History

pounds. The smaller Columbian
stood 9.5 feet at the shoulders,
weighing 6,000 to 12,000 pounds.
Their tusks were curved almost
180 degrees. They grazed on the
grassy prairies, using their mas-
sive molars to grind the grass.
The Mammoths' social habits
were much like those of the Mod-
ern Indian Elephants. Commer-
cial fishermen have found count-
less fossils of the mammoths on
Lake Okeechobee.
The Mastodon was ,another
member of the elephant fam-
ily. They were approximately the
same size of a Columbian Mam-
moth. The Mastodon had molars
that featured distinctive, cone-like
cusps. Mammoths had flat, ridged
molars that look like washboards,
totally different in appearance


from the Mastodon. The Mast-
odons were browsers, feeding on
tree limbs,, tree bark and scrubs.
Their tusks were longer and less
curved than the Mammoth tusks..
Mark Renz, a former Clewiston
resident, has unearthed nine feet
long Mastodon tusks in Hendry,
County.
The Giant Ground Sloth was
colossal in comparison to the
living tree sloths of today. There
were 16 to 18 feet in length and
weighed 8,000 to 10,000 pounds.
They fed on tree foliage. The skel-
eton of a Giant Ground Sloth was
found in Hendry County near Big
Cypress.
The ancient horse lived and
thrived ini south Florida. They

varied in size from 3 to 6 feet at
the shoulders. The prairie grasses
created the perfect environment
for these animals. Their fossilized
bones are found throughout Flori-
da. The teeth, leg bones and jaws
of the ancient horses have been
found in western Hendry County.
There. were many types of
camels in Florida, including the
twelve-foot high giraffe camel,
but the two most common were
the Hemiauchenia, which was
tall and slender and lived on the
grasslands, and the Paleolama
which was shorter and heavier,
closely -resembling the Peruvian
llama of today. Some large camel
teeth are almost identical to bison
teeth, but a bison tooth often has


a small vertical pillar on the side
between the sections, which a
camel never has. The teeth, jaws,
and leg bones of camels have
been found in western Hendry
County.
The ancient bison (Buffalo),
with horns that spanned six feet,
moved in herds across the Florida
peninsula. The smaller woods
and plains bison herds survived
until the early 18th century. There
are Spanish documents describ-
ing the buffalo herds grazing side
by side with the wild Spanish cat-
tle. Bison teeth have been found'
in western Hendry County.
All the animals mentioned so
far were herbivores that fed on
grasses, trees, scrubs and foli-


age. The carnivores, which were
meat eaters, followed these ani-
mals into Florida. The Dire Wolf
weighed close to 200 pounds.
They probably preyed on ancient
bison, much like the grey wolfs
prey on Plains Bison today. The
American Lion was the size of the
Siberian Tiger, weighing 600 to
800 pounds. It fed on the larger
herbivores. The Saber-Tooth Cat
weighed 300 pounds, which is
twice the weight of the Florida
Panther.
There were many other pre-
historic animals that lived in Hen-
dry County, but words and print
are running thin, so I must bring
this Tall Tale to a close. What do
you think happened to all these


critters? Is it possible that a UFO
sucked them all up and teleport-
ed them across the universe? This
question will bd provided in the
next edition of "A Walk in The'
Past."

Friends and Neighbors,
It has been my pleasure to serve you, as a Law Enforcement Officer, over the past decade in Hendry County. That is why I am committed to
providing you with a better quality Law Enforcement Agency. Your Sheriffs Office should be highly trained, effective, knowledgeable and
courteous. Friends, I ask you, "Are we there yet?" and the answer is "No". That is why I want to be your next Sheriff. My plans for the Hendry
County Sheriffs Office and the citizens of Hendry County will be mapped out over the next few weeks for you to see. These plans will
address current issues relating to the job, the agency and the people most affected by these areas and that is you, the citizen. I will not only
point out the problem, I will then lay out my plan on how to solve these problems. Most notably, we need more Deputies on the streets,
answering calls, patrolling your neighborhoods and working with you to suppress crime. As I have stated before, the current Administration
is full of highly paid positions that have little or no effect on the department. There are people in positions with no real obligation to you or
their specific duty has little benefit to the community. By simply re-allocating the monies designated for these "non-essential" positions
and using those funds to provide additional Deputies to every part of the county it will immediately impact our community. When
managing a budget, your spending must be prioritized. As Sheriff, I will place the citizens of Hendry County as the top pri-
ority Another problem that I have seen first hand is the lack of cooperation with Federal, State and local Agencies.
Together I plan to work hand in hand with other Law Enforcement Agencies to better serve you the citizens of Hendry
County. I will work hard to re-establish working relationships with these Agencies and Organizations. By doing this it
will provide the Sheriffs Office with areas of intelligence, specified training, access to various resources and use of
critical emergency equipment in times of need. I will work to strengthen these relationships so that we can become
more effective in the times when you need it most. Friends, I ask you to simply look around... 'Are we there yet?"
