Manager surprises
commission by
making the
announcement

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Clewiston
City Manager Wendell Johnson
surprised many of those in atten-
dance during a meeting Tuesday
night by announcing his retire-


ment.
The news came minutes after
a discussion between the man-
ager and Mali Chamness, Clewis-
ton's mayor, during which some
say the manager seemed to be-
come agitated.
Visibly upset, Mr. Johnson
took offense to his manner of
management and decided to
part ways with the city.
His comportment at the
meeting shocked at least one
commissioner.
As the March 16 city meeting


winded down, and as the mayor
discussed the city's annual spring
cleaning, and the issue of trash
cans in front yards as eyesores,
Mr. Johnson said that he would
no longer be the city's manager.
"He just basically said he was
ready to retire," said Ms. Cham-
ness.
In an interview with The
Clewiston News, the mayor
said she felt Mr. Johnson took
offense to her notes on stricter
code enforcement in the area.
She defended her right to make

through neighborhoods determined to keep Clewiston Amer-


the points that night, saying that
it is not out of the ordinary for a
commissioner to direct the man-
ager to look into any area of con-
cern.
Ms. Chamness said she was
taken aback by what transpired
during and after the discussion,
citing Mr. Johnson's "unprofes-
sional behavior," his "demeanor
getting up and leaving the com-
mission room," and his com-
ments to some of the commis-
sioners following the meeting.

Early terms apply
to youth aged 16 or
under

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- The Hendry
County Board of Commission-
ers are considering a proposal
to enact a juvenile curfew ordi-
nance to curb, among other is-
sues, gang activity in the area.
Recent events throughout
the county, and especially in
the Clewiston area, have lead-
ers worrying whether shoot-
ings could spill out into other
areas, or worsen.
Commissioners discussed
the measure during their regu-
lar Feb. 24 meeting. It makes
perfect sense to keep youth off
the streets during the late-night
hours, they argued, and the lo-
cal law enforcement agencies
should have the full support of
the county.
Commissioners directed
staff to begin meetings with the
cities of Clewiston and LaBelle
in regards to the issue, although
the specific terms of the curfew
were not discussed.
On March 10, Mark Lapp,
county attorney, presented
commissioners with terms that
the commissioners could con-
sider.
Among them:
-- The curfew applies to per-
sons under the age of 16.
-- Prohibits minors from be-
ing out between 11 p.m. and 5
a.m. on weeknights.
-- Prohibits minors from be-
ing between 12:01 a.m. and 6


manager," she said.
Mr. Johnson's salary at the
time of his retirement was
$92,452.
The city attorney is scheduled
to work with city staff in setting a
special meeting of the commis-
sion to discuss the selection of a
new manager.
It was not the first time the
manager had offered his resigna-
tion.
During a discussion about the

a.m. on weekends.
-- First violation results in a
written warning; subsequent
violations result in a $50 fine.
-- Minors not complying
will be taken into custody and
parents will be required to pick
them up. If they aren't located
within two hours, officers may
take steps under the child abuse
statute, or transport them to
their residences.
-- The county has the option
of adopting an ordinance that
is stricter, or more lax than the
state law.

Exceptions to the hours of
the curfew are made for special
circumstances, including being
accompanied by a parent or
another adult authorized by the
parents; emergencies; return-
ing from a school-sponsored
function, religious function or
civic organization function,
among other things. Exercising
one's First Amendment rights is
also considered an exception.
During the course of the dis-
cussion, Sheriff Steve Whidden
also asked the commission to
think about loitering laws that
could empower deputies to
keep individuals off street cor-
ners in high crime areas.
Interestingly, the county at-
torney explained that loitering
laws currently exist, but are
limited in their power. Deputies
must have proof that there is
an immediate concern for the
safety of others, he said.
"The mere suspicion of fu-
ture conduct is insufficient,"
Mark Lapp said. "Standing late
at night in a high-crime area

Unity March Against Violence


Residents urged to
"claim community
back"

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- As the resi-
dents across the street from
the old sheriff's sub-station
watched the throng of activ-
ists walking in their neighbor-
hoods, they wondered what in
the world they were doing.
"We did get some strange
looks from people," said Pas-
tor John Hicks, of First United
Methodist Church, one of those
walking that Saturday. "Why
are all these people were going
through their neighborhoods


The more than 60 people in
the crowd continued on their
way and stood in the streets,
participating in a prayer "asking
God to bless the families."
This neighborhood has
been in the headlines recently,
but not for anything the major-
ity of its residents would like to
be acknowledged.
The streets that the group
walked have bared witness to
shootings, warring factions,
and other violent acts. A few
yards away from where the
group prayed, some have been
gunned to death.
While those participating
are adamant that only a hand-
ful of criminals are lending the
neighborhood its bad name,
people like Pastor Hicks hope


that the entire community will
rise up to reclaim its streets.
Saturday's walk was just
precursor to this weekend's
Unity March Against Violence.
The walk will be the culmi-
nation of an effort started by
Police Chief Don Gutshall and
City Commissioner Rick Miller,
who asked the area's ministe-
rial association to pitch in and
target the crime situation in
Clewiston.
They explained that some-
thing beyond law enforcement
would be needed to quell the
likelihood that the violence
could spill over into the rest of
the community.
"We've had drive by shoot-
ings, burglaries and even ar-

went on to spend his life working in
agriculture.
Alan loved history, traveling,
woodworking, reading, fishing and
spending time with his countless
family members and friends.
Alan is survived by his children,
Scott Alan Pagan and Kaley Alana

children, McKayla Snow of Cape Co-
ral, and Jason Pagan of Clewiston;
his mother, Vonda (Pagan) and

a faithful and loving husband, father,
grandfather and friend, passed on to
be with the Lord above on Friday,

Through the many years of his


hard work, his compassion for oth-
ers and genuine heart of gold, he
will never be forgotten. Although his
bigger than life presence will be
greatly missed we will always re-

Ivan was a man who loved and
cared about everyone. He always
had a smile on his face and was al-
ways ready to lend a helping hand.
He was the proud business owner
of Santiago Trucking for 27 years.
He enjoyed fishing, barbecuing
and working in his yard, doing his
best to make it look beautiful. He
loved music, dancing, and most of
all sharing time with his family, that
he loved more than life itself.
Those who are blessed to have
known him will remember him as a
strong, courageous, determined and
serving man.
He is survived by his loving wife of
30 years, Linda Santiago; his beloved
sons, Ivan Emilio and Eric Mitchell

On December 16, 2008, following extensive due diligence and public deliberation, the South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board accepted a proposal to acquire close to
180,000 acres of land for Everglades restoration from the United States Sugar Corporation.

The SFWMD is now moving forward with the first phase of planning toward a River of Grass
restoration project through a series of public workshops. As plans for the U.S. Sugar land are
determined, the SFWMD is encouraging landowners and communities to participate in the
workshops to ensure broad public involvement in the planning process and the successful
development of restoration project configurations.

Project H.O.PE.
Sometimes when a disaster
is over and you are just begin-
ning to get back on your feet, you
discover you still do not have the
ability to repair or rebuild your
home without some help. After
Tropical Storm Fay, you may have
been able to repair or rebuild
but things are just not the same.
Anxiety or just feeling the blues is
common. Talking really helps...
getting connected with available
resources really helps!
Project H.O.P.E. is a FEMA
funded program managed by the
State of Florida. Project H.O.P.E.
outreach workers are in your
community. If you would like to
talk with one of the team mem-
bers, please contact Diego at 239-
200-7454. They are here to help
and would love to hear how you
are doing!

FORT MYERS-Last Friday, the
United Way of Lee, Hendry, and
Glades was scheduled to con-
clude the 2008-2009 Campaign;
however, the campaign was over
$90,000 short. On Monday the
United Way extended the cam-
paign one extra week. Through
a very generous last push effort
by volunteers, the goal was met
by late Thursday afternoon.
Mark Morris, President of
Commerce Bank of Southwest
Florida and 2008-2009 United
Way Campaign Chair announced
that local residents and compa
nies contributed $8,019,741. This
represents a 6 percent increase
over last year's amount raised
and is the 16th consecutive year
that goal has been obtain or ex-
ceeded. United Way of Lee, Hen-
dry, and Glades had the largest
percentage increase of any Unit-
ed Way in entire state of Florida
for the 2008-2009 Campaign.
"It was a challenging cam-
paign, but we met our goal.
Thank you to all of the individu-
als, companies, communities
and agencies for their generous
contributions. Generosity is not
defined by the size of the contri-
butions individuals made, but by
the fact that they gave as much
as they were able. Those who
could, increased their contribu-
tions substantially, knowing that
this is a year when their contribu-
tions were sorely needed. Many,
who are struggling themselves,
also gave knowing that there are
people in our community who
are in desperate need of help,"
said Mark Morris at the goal an-
nouncement.
Morris went on to say, "My
roots are in Southwest Florida,
and I am proud to be from a
community that is so caring and
has always demonstrated ex-
traordinary generosity."
In addition to all of the very
generous individuals and agen-


cies that contributed to the 2008-
2009 United Way Campaign, 16
local companies, organizations,
and communities contributed
more than $100,000 each. They
include:

tors

"We are overwhelmed and

generosity of our community.
Making this campaign goal
shows how much people in our
community care about one an-
other. That is why our commu-
nity is such a special place," said
Cliff Smith, President of United
Way of Lee, Hendry, and Glades.
Since the inception of United
Way in 1957, over $88 million
dollars have been raised in our
community. All money raised in
the United Way campaign stays
in the local community to help
support the local human service
network. United Way partner
agencies and initiatives like Alvin
A Dubin Alzheimer's Resource
Center, Children's Advocacy
Center, Big Brothers Big Sisters,
LARC and United Way 211 serve
a diverse range of needs in our
community such as nurturing
children and youth, strength-
ening families, meeting critical
needs such as helping the elderly
and disabled live independently,
and empowering communities
by bringing health and human
services to neighborhoods.
In addition to raising funds for
human service organizations in
our community, the United Way
promotes partnerships and col-
laborations among agencies and
initiatives, helping them to work
together focusing on issues and
solutions that continue to im-
prove lives.
The United Way of Lee, Hen-
dry and Glades has been "the

Community March Against Gang Violence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Many of us come to church ex-
pecting to have what we already
know and believe confirmed and
validated. We like talking with
people we've known for a hun-
dred years. We enjoy the familiar-
ity of this sanctuary that holds so
many memories for us. We love
to sing those hymns and songs
we've been singing since child-
hood, and we wish the preacher
wouldn't constantly try to make
us sing new stuff.
There is so much that threat-
ens us in our weekday existence.
The world is changing so fast we
can't possibly keep up with it. On
Sunday morning, in the church,


we want to encounter a solid rock
to hold on to. And there are times
when God meets our need to be
comforted and strengthened. But
there are also times when God
knows that our greater need is
to have our thinking challenged,
our faith examined, our lifestyle
called into question. A time when
we are called to leave our com-
fort zone, a time when we are
called to stand in the gap. (Ezekiel
22:30)
If we're honest about it, we
have to admit that just about the
only place where we feel com-
fortable making bold statements
about our religion and our alle-
giance to God is in our church. In
our hymns we sing, "All to Jesus I
surrender All to Him I freely give."


In our confession of faith, we say,
"I believe that Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of the Living God, and I
accept him as Lord of my life."
And when we pray the Lord's
Prayer, we pray, "Thy kingdom
come, Thy will be done, on earth
as it is in heaven."
We say all of these things, and
that's wonderful. But what do
with we do with them when we
leave the security of our places of
worship?
There are some things in life
that are best experienced first
hand. We can't really learn how
to do a particular dance just by
hearing a lecture on modern
dance. We've got to get on the
dance floor and feel the beat of
the music. If I say, "It looked like


the runner was going to be out at
the plate, but he used a hook slide
and slid around the tag," and you
don't know anything about base-
ball, what do my words mean?
The Christian faith is sort of
like that. We can talk about it, but
unless we really put it into prac-
tice, what we have is lacking. Un-
less people actually experience
our faith in action, what do our
words mean?
As a preacher, my task is not
just to be interesting or informa-
tive or amusing or entertaining.
I hope that my sermons are all
these things, but I'm realistic
enough and aware of my own
limitations enough to know that's
not going to happen all the time.
But none of these things, as desir-


able as they may be, amount to
anything unless I can somehow
convince people of the need to
ACT, to allow the Spirit of God to
transform them. Hearers must at
last become doers. The faith we
proclaim with our Sunday morn-
ing affirmations has to be evident
in our Monday morning lives.
On Saturday, March 21, we
have one such opportunity to do
this. I invite you to join me and
others in a Unity March Against
Violence. We will gather at 10
a.m. across from the old sub
station at the corner of El Paso
and Francisco in Clewiston. The
plans are to march through sev
eral troubled neighborhoods and
conclude with a rally at the Elk's
park on Francisco. Those who


can't march are invited to come
to the Elks park as a show of sup-
port. We love our community and
want to let certain elements know
that we are not going to just sit by
and let them corrupt our youth.
Join us!
Some of you, like me, might
find that a unity march might not
be in your comfort zone. I have re-
alized that sometimes I am called
to go outside of my comfort zone
for the sake of Kingdom work. As
for me and my household, we will
do what we can do to stand up
to this violence epidemic. Even if
that involves marching through a
troubled neighborhood.


What has been will be; what has been done will be done again


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Ecclesiastes 1:9 NIV it says
"What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done
again; there is nothing new under
the sun."
In a recent article I read, it
stated that modern-day liberals
- or "progressives", labor under
an awkward misconception;
namely, that there is anything
remotely "progressive" about
the fundamental canons of their
blind, secular-humanist faith. In
fact, today's liberalism is largely a
sanitized retread of an antiquated
mythology one that significantly

predates the only true progressive
movement: Biblical Christianity.
Baal worship taught child sac-
rifice, sexual immorality (both
heterosexual and homosexual)
and pantheism (reverence of cre-
ation over the Creator). Ritualistic
Baal worship, in sum, looked a
little like this: Adults would gather
around the altar of Baal. Infants
would then be burned alive as
a sacrificial offering to the diety.
Amid horrific screams and the
stench of charred human flesh,
congregants men and women
alike, would engage in bisexual
orgies. The ritual of CONVE-
NIENCE was intended to produce
economic prosperity by prompt-
ing Baal to bring rain for the fertil-


bent at 561-308-7654.

ity of "mother earth." The natural
consequences of such behavior
- pregnancy and childbirth and
the associated financial burdens
of "unplanned parenthood" were
easily offset. One could either
choose to engage in homosexual
conduct or with child sacrifice
on demand could take part in
another fertility ceremony to ter-
minate the unwanted child.
Modern liberalist deviates
little from its ancient predessor!
While its macabre rituals have
been sanitized by flowery and
euphemistic terms of art, its core
tenets and practices remain eerily
similar. The worship of "fertility"
has been replaced with worship
of "reproductive freedom" and


"choice." Child sacrifice via burnt
offering has been updated, even
so slightly, to become child sac-
rifice by way of abortion. The
ritualistic promotion, practice and
celebration of both heterosexual
and homosexual immorality and
promiscuity have been carefully
whitewashed, yet wholeheartedly
embraced by the cults of radical
feminism, militant "gay rights"

and "comprehensive sex educa-

ship of "mother earth" has been
substituted in name only, for
radical environmentalism.
In the White House today and
in the lllth Congress we have
those who are rife with unfettered
pro-abortion, freedom-chilling,
pro-homosexual and power-grab-
bing environmentalist objectives.


The same kind of "hope, action
and change," I suppose, that was
swallowed by the Baalist Canaan-
ites of old. So today's liberalism is
really just a very old book with a
shinny new cover. A philosophy
rooted in ancient pagan tradi-
tions of which there is naught to
be proud. There's "nothing new
under the sun," indeed!

Hendry Regional hosts lunch and learn


By Glenda Wilson
March is National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month and
Hendry Regional Medical Center
is educating the community about
colorectal cancer through free
'lunch and learn' seminars. Dr.
Leonard Carroll and Dr. Darayes
Mobed, both general surgeons at
Hendry Regional, will be hosting
these lunch and learn sessions
and discussing ways to prevent,
diagnose, and treat colorectal
cancer.
Dr. Carroll will speak during
lunch at the hospital conference
room in Clewiston on Wednes-
day, March 25 from 12:15 p.m.
to 1:15 p.m. (a light lunch will be
provided).
Dr. Darayes Mobed will speak
during lunch at the Convenient
Care Center conference room in
LaBelle on Thursday, March 26
from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. (a
light lunch will be provided).
It takes guts to face the facts
about colorectal cancer and do
something about it. Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center wants you
to know the facts:
*Colorectal cancer is the


second leading cause of cancer
deaths in the United States only
lung cancer is more deadly, affect-
ing about 174,000 people each
year and taking 160,000 lives. This
year alone, about 149,000 Ameri-
cans will be diagnosed with col-
orectal cancer, and about 55,000
will die from it. By comparison,
breast cancer will affect 213,000
women this year and claim about
41,000 lives. During that same
time, roughly 234,000 men will be
diagnosed with prostate cancer,
and 27,000 will die from it.
*Even though colon cancer
and rectal cancer are often re-
ferred to together (as colorectal
cancer), they describe cancers of
two different areas. Rectal cancer
occurs when a tumor grows in
the bottom 6 inches of the bowel.
If a tumor grows in any area of the
bowel that's above the rectum, it
is called colon cancer.
Colorectal cancer affects men
and women in equal numbers. It
is not a "man's disease" which
is how some people think.
*Colorectal cancer doesn't
discriminate a person of any
race can get this disease. How-


ever, African-American men and
women are more likely to de-
velop colorectal cancer than any
other racial group, and they are
also more likely to die from it.
*Although it is true that nine
out of ten cases of colorectal can-
cer are diagnosed in people older
than 50, the average age for diag-
nosis is only 62. This is why doc-
tors recommend that everyone
older than 50 should have routine
screening exams for colorectal
cancer.
*Genes can play a part in
who develops colorectal cancer.
As with many other diseases,
your risk goes up if a close fam-
ily member has had it. However,
the majority of people who get
colorectal cancer have no family
history at all.
*The majority of people who
develop colorectal cancer have
no history of inflammatory bowel
disease or other bowel condi-
tions. Even if a person has never
had digestive problems of any
kind, he or she is still at risk for
colorectal cancer. However, a
change of bowel habits may be
an early symptom.


*Colorectal cancer can grow
for a long time without causing
any symptoms or in some
cases, it may cause vague or low-
level symptoms that a person
might ignore. Often, by the time it
causes noticeable symptoms, the
cancer has become much harder
to treat.
*Colorectal cancer is actu-
ally one of the most preventable
cancers. Tumors in the colon or
rectum begin as polyps (benign
growths), and it is possible to de-
tect and remove them before they
become cancerous. This is done
with a colonoscopy, a test that
uses a scope to examine the en-
tire colon and rectum. If the doc-
tor finds any polyps, he or she can
remove them during the exam.
*When colorectal cancer is
found early meaning that the
cancer is confined to one location
within the colon or rectum it is
very treatable and the vast major-
ity of people survive. It becomes
much more difficult to treat when
it's discovered later and after the
cancer has spread to other parts
of the body.

Tangible Personal Property,


who has to file and when?


Phillip Pelletier, Property Ap-
praiser, wants to remind you t
hat your deadline for filing
your Personal Property Returns
(DR405) is Wednesday April 1st
at 5 p.m. The return was mailed
to all businesses in Hendry
County back in January. If you
did not receive a DR405 return
and are currently in business you
can come to one of our offices
to pick one up, you can request
one at your accountant's office
or you may download one from
our website at www.hendry-
prop.org.
According to Florida Statues,
"Tangible Personal Property"
means all goods, chattels, and
other articles of value capable of
manual possession and whose
chief value is intrinsic to the ar-
ticle itself.
Last year Florida voters elect-


ed to approve Amendment 1,
part of which was an exemption
for Tangible property. Under this
new exemption it is important
that you file an initial DR404 with
our office. You must file to re-
ceive the exemption. Unless you
received a GREY or BLUE card in
the mail in January then you are
already exempt from having to
file again.
This exemption will exempt
the first $25,000 in value of the
furniture, fixtures and equip-
ment used by the business and
eliminates all tax bills for assess-
ments under $25,000.
If you have previously filed
and your business has changed
in statues it is important that
our offices be notified (even if
you are exempt) before the fil-
ing deadline. This would include
changes in your mailing address,


business name or your physical
location. We need to keep our
records updated
Your return must be filed with
our office by April 1. If you are
unable to file your return before
April 1, you may file a request for
a 30-day extension. This request
MUST be filed in a reasonable
amount of time before the April
I deadline to avoid your account
being penalized up to 25 percent
for not filing.
For additional questions
please stop by our office in La-
Belle located on the third floor of
the courthouse or call 863-675-
5270. In Clewiston we are locat-
ed at 939 W Sugarland Highway
or call 863-983-1591. You can
also download a copy of the DR-
405 at our website along with
additional information at www.

1679 La Florida Spanish



Expedition


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The sun moved slowly across
an ageless trail that linked two
worlds; night and day. Its golden
orb radiated, filling the sky with
paschal hues of color, as it paused
momentarily on the fringes of the
western horizon and then disap-
peared. Only the red crimson sky
betrayed its hidden presence as
nighttime ushered in.
The darkening sky brought
rest to the weary, sun burnt sol-
diers and Indians who had toiled
all day in the hot sun. Their bod-
ies, arms, and shoulders ached
from the listless hours they had
spent paddling in the cramped,
wet quarters of the dugouts. The
men beached the canoes and col-
lected firewood for a primitive
camp site. Soon warm, flickering
fires and full stomachs brought
rest and closure to the night as
the Spanish soldiers slumbered
off to sleep. The restless Indians
bedded down, but sleep eluded
them.
Cold, clammy droplets of mois-
ture formed on the Tocobago In-
dian's tense bodies as each lay
quietly, reminiscing and cultivat-
ing an ancient fear, the Calusas.
Tomorrow's journey would bring
the expedition into the land of the
Calusa, and the thought of con-
fronting their dreaded enemy was
terrifying. They knew the horrors
that awaited the man or woman
who fell captive to the Calusa.
A silent, but unspoken signal
passed uncannily through their
ranks. All rose together, mov-
ing through the encampment
like shadows in the night. Men
moved like ghostly images, leav-
ing no traces of flesh and bone
as they stepped soundless and ef-
fortlessly past their Spanish com-
panions. They quietly pushed
their dugouts into the sea's dark
canopy of darkness and started
paddling relentlessly north, like
crazed men driven by terror.
The ole saying "Ignorance is
Bliss" wouldn't apply to the Toco-
bago Indians in this Tall Tale yarn
that took place in 1679. It is time
to take "A Walk in The Past" and
read about a Spanish expedition
in south Florida.
In 1679, Spanish Governor
Pablo Salazar received word that
captive Spaniards were being


held as slaves at the province of
Calus. His informant was an In-
dian chief called Casique Medina,
who traded and worked with In-
dians from the Tocobago Indian
Nation.
The Tocobagos lived in the
Tampa Bay region and were al-
ways feuding with the Calusas.
They probably reported the
Spanish captive's plight to Casique
Medina for purposes that went
beyond humanitarian reasons.
The Calusa Indian Nation was an
ancient enemy that the Tocobago
fought, hated and feared. What
better way to play two superpow-
ers in Florida, the Spanish against
the Calusa.
The Spanish captive incident
only confirmed all was not well
on the Calusa frontier. Informa-
tion concerning Calusa hostilities
wasn't new to Governor Salazar.
In a letter written in 1675, to the
crown, Governor Salazar de-
scribes the Calusas as the most
warlike and troublesome Indians
in Florida. He wrote that they
killed shipwreck survivors and In-
dians, whose nations were under
Spanish protection.
Earlier Spanish letters report
that a truce was established in
1612, between the Spaniards and
Calusas. The truce lasted at least
until 1634, because a letter writ-
ten by a priest in the same year
indicated the Spaniards and Calu
sas were still on peaceful terms.
Calusa hostilities would have oc-
curred after 1634.
There are no recorded instanc-
es of Spanish slavers or European
diseases in south Florida that
could have fueled hostilities dur-
ing this time, so what happened?
The problem may have stemmed
simply from "The changing of
the guards," when a new Calusa
Casique took power. A new ruler
may have exercised a different
political agenda, one that was
fiercely patriotic and traditional.
Historians will probably never
know what really reignited the
Calusa hostilities.
The 1679 report on Spanish
Captives held as slaves, spurred
Governor Salazar to act. He cre-
ated a small expedition under the
joint command of Juan Cruz and
Casique Medina. They were to
negotiate and ransom the Span-
ish captives from the Calusas.
The expedition consisted of Span-


ish soldiers and Indian warriors.
Traveling by canoes, the expedi-
tion traveled down the Apalachee
River to the Gulf of Mexico, then
southward along the west coast
of Florida to Tampa Bay.
The expedition stopped at avil-
lage along the way called Alcola; it
had a population of 300 persons.
They rested and continued south,
stopping at another village called
Pojoi that had up to 300 people.
The chief of the village begged
the soldiers not to continue south
because the Calusa would view
his village with contempt for not
attacking the soldiers. The chief
said the Calusa would bring se-
vere reprisals against his people.
The expedition disregarded the
chief's request and continued
south.
Other village chiefs appealed
to the Spanish expedition, beg-
ging them to turn back for fear
of retaliatory acts against their
villages by the Calusa. The vil-
lager's fear of the Calusas rubbed
off on the expedition because all
the Indian warriors traveling with
the expedition fled into the night,
abandoning the group. The small
force of Spanish soldiers was ill
equipped to face a large Calusa
force, so they returned to north
Florida without the Spanish cap-
tives.
Governor Salazar was updated
by the expedition's leaders and re-
acted in a strange way. He wrote
a letter to the crown in 1680, and
suggested missions be established
in the Calusa Indian Nation. We
will never know what his inten-
tions or expectations were in writ-
ing such a letter. There was a war
going on in south Florida, and he
was asking for missions!
There will be more "Tale Tales"
in next week's edition 'A Walk in
The Past," when the Spanish at-
tempt to establish a mission in
the Calusa Indian Nation.

sons we believe to be traceable to
the original argument," Clewiston
Police Chief Don Gutshall shared.
"There has been gang graffiti,
constant friction even filtering into
the school system, and a 'choos-
ing of sides' within a large area of
Southeast Clewiston."
The effort is an offshoot of the
Hendry Glades Gang Coalition,
which has organized recently to
tackle the issue from all facets of
the community: the educational
system, religious entities, law en-
forcement and the private sector.
"There's only so much a law
enforcement agency can do,"
says Gutshall. "We needed help
addressing some of these issues
by someone who could gain a
greater trust of these families."

adoption of an updated city char-
ter last August, Mr. Johnson also
did not seem to appreciate the
mayor's questioning the charter.
The city manager said he took it
as a show of "no confidence" in
him.
After a few minutes, the man-
ager offered to rescind the resig-
nation. Given the circumstances
behind it, the commission ac-
cepted.
The manager, who was just
a few weeks shy of marking his
sixth year in the position, had
previously hinted at the possibility
that he would be leaving the city.
"Wendell told me a year ago
that his house was up for sale
and that he considered moving
to where his children where, but
didn't know when," said Mayor
Chamness, who nevertheless said
that Mr. Johnson had been, by
and large, a "very good city man-

expected to vote on the measure
during a future meeting.

Local churches are happy to
help.
"I think that right now, it's at
a stage where we can nip it in
the bud," said Pastor Hicks. "The
ministers were talking about what
we can do to make a stand and let
people know we're not gonna sit
by and watch."
Like many others, Pastor Hicks
worries that the violence, if left
alone, will reach the children.
"Eventually, we're gonna
have innocent children shot and
killed," he said.
More than a dozen churches
will be taking part in this Satur-
day's walk. It begins at 10 a.m. on
the vacant lot near the intersec-
tion of El Paso Avenue and Fran-
cisco Street. Immediately follow-
ing the walk, a rally will be held
at Elks Park.
One of those walking this
weekend cannot walk at all. A

Mr. Johnson had also applied
for the county administrator job
for Sumter County in 2006, having
been one of the finalists for that
position.
In an article about his appli-
cation and subsequent interview
with Sumter County, Mr. Johnson
reportedly cited his confidence
as one of his greatest strengths,
along with his experience and
people skills.
Mr. Johnson did not return
calls for comment on this story.
Other commissioners did not im-
mediately return calls for com-
ment.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)


How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

Mother of pearl
If you ever wondered what was in the luminous clouds left in the wake of a space shuttle
launch, the cloud, which was also part of the con trail, is probably 10 to 15 miles up in the
atmosphere. It is called a 'mother of pearl' cloud because it is reflecting the sunlight from
below the horizon. Clouds like this are extremely rare and to have the shuttle create one is
quite a treat. It glows because it is high enough in the atmosphere to catch the full sun.
