New sheriff tak


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
As Hendry County's new
sheriff Steve Whidden prepared
to take office, he sat down to
explain to the residents what
they should expect from his ad-
ministration.
Sheriff Whidden said em-
ployees can expect the new
regime to exact a new level of
accountability from each divi-
sion.
Chief Deputy Chuck Pow-
ell said the public will witness
a new level of transparency in
the department. He said the
public will know, to the fullest
extent possible, how HCSO is


being operated.
Sheriff Whidden agreed that
this transparency would begin
to establish more accountability
of officers and the department,
and increase public confidence
in both.
The sheriff said the public
will first notice a'change in the
attitude of deputiess. One of
the first acts Sheriff Whidden
plans is to have a one-on-one
talk with each deputy, to make
sure they understand what is
expected of them and to clear
up any misconceptions.
HCSO employs some 160
people; approximately 50
sworn road deputies; 27 cor-
rections; 9-10 investigators; and


s reins
2 ag deputies! He said approxi-
m'ately 1,2/ employees would
not return after the change in
adr ifstration; few of them
working deputies.
He has even retained some
of those in management, in-
cluding Rick Waldren and Don
Rodriguez, although they are
now in different positions.
Another change for the
Whidden administration is the
addition of "more experienced,
qualified investigators."
Chief Deputy Powell added
that performance measures
will be put in place similar to
CompState, based on New
See Sheriff Page 14


Although he didn't see any-
thing this time, the boy said it
was easy to tell what had hap-
pened.
One witness remarked,
"There is something wrong in
the suspect's head to have done
this sidk act."
He called the sheriff's office
to report the crime.
The witnesses said the sus-
pect had just recently moved in,
and that shortly after doing so,
he showed up with three pup-
pies he claimed to have found.

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HARLEM -- Hendry County
Sheriff's officials arrested two
women they said were involved
in a fight in Harlem on Dec. 29.
While no one was viciously
injured, investigators say one of
the suspects stabbed the other
with a knife, and accidentally


stabbed her own mother dur-
ing the conflict.
Shaterrica L. Mills, 26, told
officer she was arguing with
Tushenia I. Sherman, 25, when
Sherman said she "had some-
thing for her."
Shaterrica said she followed
Tushenia into Tushenia's apart-
ment on Harlem Gardens, and
Tushenia came out of the kitch-
en with a knife. Shaterrica said
the suspect managed to stab
her in the back of the neck and
her arm, and stabbed her own
mother by accident.

CLEWISTON -- A cruel sex-
uali assault against a dog was


not the only animal cruelty
case that the county's animal
control unit handled over the

CLEWISTON Finishing strong
is perhaps the most critical ele-
ment in any outcome, as far as
basketball is concerned.
It's something the Clewiston
Tigers boys basketball failed to
do last season, suffering a season-
ending swoon with a 13-11 final
record after a 7-2 start.
Seven of Clewiston's 11 losses
were critically painful, includ-
ing two losses each to Pahokee,
Glades Day and Glades Central.
For a team that boasted great
talent last season most of the key
players are back it was especially
disappointing, to say the least.
In all fairness, though, four of
last season's five starters were
sophomores, according to Willie
Lee, the head coach.
"We had a young team last
year," Lee said.
"We played against senior-
oriented teams last season, but
now I feel we have an advantage
because our kids are more expe-
rienced."
With this year's team, Lee is
hoping that a combination of
youth and experience will serve
them well come playoff time.
Considering the fact that Class
4A is up for grabs this season Mi-
ami-Monsignor Pace is the two-
time defending state champions
- Lee expects his boys to be in the
mix.

That shouldn't come'. as: a
surprise, with Clewiston play-
ing some playoff-caliber teams
in the home stretch, including a
Feb. 3 home game against Class
2A power Glades Day and two
games each with Immokalee and
Pahokee.
"These games will be mea-
suring stick to see how good our
team really is," Lee said of Glades
Day, Immokalee and Pahokee.
Clewiston will have an oppor-
tunity to sweep the home-and-
home series against Glades Day
after capturing a 56-53 road vic-
tory against the Gators on Dec. 9.
To do that, however, the coach-
ing staff and the players must dis-
play a fluid chemistry that was, at
best, questionable in several key
games last season.
Clewiston has the players and
the coach to make a run at win-
ning the District 11-4A tourna-
ment next month.
The District 11-4A teams con-
sist of South Fort Myers, Estero,
LaBelle, Riverdale, Lemon Bay,
Gateway Charter and Cypress
Lake.
If Clewiston defeats Estero in
its home game tonight, which
begins at 7 p.m., they will finish
the regular season at 5-2 in its dis-
trict.
With losses to South Fort My-
ers and Cypress Lake, Clewiston
may have to face one of these
two teams in next month's district
tournament.
In order to make it to the Class
4A regional playoffs, the Tigers
must at least make it to the cham-
pionship round.

losing to South Fort Myers'.in the
semifinals last year's semifinals,
effectively ending their disap-
pointing season.
South Fort Myers is the defend-
ing district champion, while Este-
ro finished as the district runner-
up last year.
For Clewiston to even think
about reaching the Class 4A State
Final Four they last accomplished
that feat in 1992 it must stick to
its key strengths.
What works for them is using
the transition defense as its key to
control the tempo of each game
they play in, as well as displaying
a sense of overall discipline on
the court.
"I'll put my chances with any
Class 4A team in the state", Lee
said.
"In my opinion, we're still a
year away, but we can be as good
as we want to be."
The Tigers certainly has played
to its strengths thus far, as they
reached the finals of the Mariner
Pre-Christmas Holiday Tourna-
ment, held in Fort Myers from
Dec. 20-23.
Though Clewiston lost in the
Dec. 23 championship game to
Mariner, 67-51, something good
came out of the experience.
Not only were junior guard
Hurley Johnson and freshman
center Darius Redd named to the
all-tournament team, the entire
squad gained a new sense of con-
fidence heading into January.
"I love this team and I hope
we're going to have a successful
season," Lee said.
Barring a. rash of injuries,
which Lee realizes can happen


prove their overall skills in fielding
and hitting should attend this spe-
cial event.
The cost of the clinic is $50.00
and early registration is required.
Registration forms can be
picked up or faxed by contact-
ing Coach Paez at (561) 996-6769

Clubs and organizations


Speak Out has moved online, where it is quicker and
easier to share your ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the community name and your
local or state Public Forum. There, you can create new
topics or comment on existing topics. You can also e-
mail comments to clewnews@newszap.com, online com-
ments get posted faster and not all phone calls can
be printed. What follows is a sampling of some of the
discussions currently taking place..Thanks for participating!
RACISM IN THE WORK PLACE: How can this be tolerated. I think
the people involved should be terminated immediately. Going around
calling people Guatemalans and Mexicans be over heard saying that
those people aren't worth anything. Also I would like to state that tell-
ing people that you are going to retest them only in english and that if
they don't pass that they would be suspended for sometime and brought
back to take the test again and if not passed the second time that they
would be fired that's a violation of civil rights you can not single out one
group of people. Don't believe me look it up on flsenate.gov. Now I'm
sure you have told your bosses a different story but we will see when the
truth comes out who was telling the truth and who is telling the lie, and
one more thing 75 percent of employees voted to have the union. Sorry
you lost so please get over it and move on or just leave.

Letters to the Editor


Choo Choo Training
As we have now crossed the
threshold of another year, with
the tumult and tragedy's of 2008
in our rear view mirrors, I want to
share a piece of my past with you.
Without knowing it back then, I
was fortunate enough to have
been given some of the best ad-
vice at a time when I was laid off
with 3 children, ages 5 through
2, and another on the way. That
advice, which came in the form
of a verse, I think might have
some traction and help some of
the people being hit by the cur-
rent economic crisis to get "back
on track." "Some people ride the
train of life looking out the rear.
Watching-the miles of life roll by,
and marking every year. They sit
in sad remembrance of wasted
days gone by and curse their life
for what it was, and hang their
head and cry. But don't concern
yourselves with that, just take on
a different vent. Look forward to
what life holds, and not what has
been spent. So strap yourselves
to the engine, as securely as can
be, you Want to be out in front to
see what you can see. You want
to feel the winds of change blow-
ing in your face. You want to see
what life unfolds, as you move
from place to place. You" want to
see what's coming up, not look-


ing at the past. Life's too short for
yesterdays, it moves along too
fast. So if the ride gets bumpy
while you are looking back, go up
front, and you may find, your life
has jumped the track. It's all right
to remember, that's part of histo-
ry. But up front's where it's hap-
pening, where there's so much
mystery. The enjoyment of living
is not where we have been. It's
looking ever forward to another
year and ten. It's searching all the
by-ways, and never should you
refrain. For if you want to live your
life, you gotta drive the train."
Now I don't know that this
will heal any, let alone all, of the
wounds you are now being sub-
jected to; but back in the reces-
sion of 1958, it provided the stimu-
lus for turning our totally negative
employment and family situation
into a positive career launching
change in our lives. I was forced
to make a life changing decision,
and move my family away from
our families in Indiana, by train,
to Buffalo, New York, and accept
a position in sales with a Plastic
Material Supplier. That train ride
and geographical relocation,
resulted in a forty year career in
Plastics sales and sales manage-
ment. I trust that this article may
in some small way serve to help
any of you faced with similar cir-

Pre-file for Ag
Classification
The Hon. Kristina A. Kulpa,
Hendry County Property Apprais-
er, announces that her office is
now taking pre-files for 2009 for
the Agriculture Classification.
Do You Have a Commercial
Ag Business? Have you recently
made any changes to this busi-
ness/land? If you answered yes
then here are a few things you
MUST remember.
*Agricultural Classifications
are not transferable.


*New owners of agricultural
lands must apply in order'to re-
ceive an agricultural classifica-
tion
*If the status of the land
changes in any way, it is the re-
sponsibility of the taxpayer to no-
tify our office.
If you have any questions or
concerns regarding Agricultural
Classification please feel free to

I learned a long time ago that
"Intelligence doesn't necessar-

creative doesn't have to mean tal-

all that important, unless you're
not getting any." And, an article
should be like a mini-skirt. Long
enough to cover everything, but
just short enough to keep it in-

Milk income loss contract program


USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) announced that signup for
the Milk Income Loss Contract
Program (MILC) has begun and
will continue through the pro-
gram's expiration date, Septem-
ber 30, 2012.
The 2008 Farm Bill reauthoriz-
es the MILC Program, which op-
erates similarly to the counter-cy-
clical payment program for crops,
and makes three key changes in
program operation.
Under the 2008 Act, the MILC
payment rate and the per-opera-
tion poundage limit are modified,
depending on when the milk is
produced. In addition, a "feed
cost adjuster," is introduced over
the .file of the 2008 Act, which
adjusts the $16.94 per hundred-
weight (cwt.) benchmark price
upward depending on the cost of
feed rations.
When available, MILC pay-
ments are based on a payment
rate percentage that is multiplied
by the difference between a now-
flexible target ($16.94 per cwt. or
higher) and the specific month's
Boston Class I price of milk. US-
DA's Commodity Credit Corpora-
tion (CCC) issues MILC payments
on an operation-by-operation ba-
sis up to a maximum of 2.4 mil-
lion pounds of milk produced and
marketed (about 120 cows) from
October 1, 2007 through Septem-
ber 30, 2008.
The production limit per op-
eration increases to 2.985 million
pounds (about 145 cows) for
each fiscal year from October 1,
2008 through August 31, 2012.
The production limitation reverts
back to the original limit of 2.4
million pounds per fiscal year in
September 2012. The 2008 Act
adjusts the trigger price of $16.94
cwt., depending on the extent to
which feed costs increase.


The feed cost adjustment takes
effect when the monthly Na-
tional Average Dairy Feed Ration
Cost (calculated from the "entire
month" prices published by the
National Agricultural Statistics
Service) is greater than $7.35 per
cwt. beginning January 1, 2008
through August 31, 2012.
Calculations from January 1,
2008 through August 31, 2012 will
be made at 45 percent of the per-
centage that the National Average
Dairy Feed Ration Cost exceeds
$7.35 per cwt. Beginning with Fis-
cal Year 2009 marketing's, which
started October 1, 2008 the 2008
Act made changes to the provi-
sion for payment eligibility to add
an adjusted gross income (AGI)
limit.
If the individual or entity has
annual non-farm AGI for the rel-
evant base period greater than
$500,000, the individual or entity
is not eligible for MILC benefits.
The base period will be set pur-
suant to AGI regulations yet to be
issued. That rule will also define
what is considered to be non-
farm income.


During the signup application
period, participating dairy opera-
tions must select the month of the
fiscal year to start receiving pay-
ments for eligible production.
Producers submitting a con-
tract application within 30 days of
the beginning of the application
period can select any preceding
month as the start month. Produc-
ers submitting contract applica-
tions after January 21, 2009, will
not have the option of selecting
an earlier month as the payment
start month for the dairy opera-
tion for a fiscal year; and will be
limited.to applicable start month
selection rules.
Those general rules are that
the start month must either be
the month the contract is submit-
ted or some later month. Changes
in the month may be made from
year to year so long as the desig-
nation is made by the fourteenth
of the month proceeding the new
start month.
Pound limits run from the start
month and all pounds for which
payment is received count against
the limit for that fiscal year. Eli-

The continued story of



the Mayamis Nation


Treasures at Fort
Center

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Dark, ominous clouds brewed
and rumbled on the horizon, until
the tempest exploded in a brilliant
and thunderous barrage.
Gusting winds swept across
the lake, churning the shallow
depths into a cauldron of seeth-
ing, grey waves that danced along
the surface in deadly duets before
striking the three dugouts with a
fury.
In timeless minutes, the storm
passed as quickly as it came..The
sun reappeared sheepishly on the
horizon, radiating light across the
darkened heavens and upon the
lake's surface.
Gold and silver treasures lying
in the wet dugouts glittered to the
sun's caress, as two dejected fig-
ures sat impassive to the wealth
around them.
One wore finely tailored cloths
and was a goldsmith, a talent that
had brought wealth and fortune
into his life and would now bring
a life of enslavement.
The other person was dressed
as a Spanish mariner; whose face
was weathered by years at the
mast on a slave ship, a curse'that
would follow the mariner to the
grave. This story has a merit of
truth. Gold and silver were found
at Fort Center and a mystery man
of Spanish origin left his calling
card there.
It's time to take a "Walk in The
Past" and learn about the trea-
sures and mystery man .at Fort
Center.
Fontanedo, a Spanish slave to
the Calusa Indians, wrote in his
memoirs, "The King of Ais and
the King of Jeaga are poor Indi-
ans, as respects the land; for there
are no mines of silver or of gold
where they are; and, in short, they
are rich only by the sea, from the
many vessels that have been lost
well laden with these metals."
Later in his memoirs he writes,
"Leaving this matter aside, I de-
sire to speak of the riches found
by the Indians of Ais, which per-
haps were as much as a million
dollars, or over, in bars of silver,
in gold, and in articles of jewelry


made by the hands of Mexican In-
dians, which the passengers were
bringing with them. These things
Carlos divided with the caciques
of Ais, Gaucata, Mayajuaco, and
Mayaca."
Fontanedo describes Guaca-
ta as a town on the Lake of the
Mayaimis Indians.
Archeologists think Guacata
was on the eastern side of Lake
Okeechobee and are basing that
educated guess on. other clues
fourd in Fontanedo's memoirs.
Simply stated, gold and silver
were brought to Lake Okeecho-
bee and given to the cacique
(chief) at Guacata.
Gold and silver have been
found throughout the Glades re-
gion. I believe there were other
deliveries of gold treasures to
the Mayaimis Indians on Lake
Qkeechobee, before and after
Fontanedo was ransomed and
wrote his memoirs in'1575. One
of the largest, Spanish treasure
fleets assembled was destroyed
in a hurricane in 1715 on the Trea-
sure Coast.
An amateur organization se-
cured permission from the for-
mer land owners of Fort Center to
"survey" a mound site. The land
owners were unhappy with the
resulting "survey" and cancelled
permission to continue work at
the site. A collection of gold.and
silver artifacts found by the orga-
nization were recovered by the
land owners, who later made
them available for study at dif-
ferent times to Florida archeolo-
gists.
The gold and silver specimens
were of Spanish origin, but most
had been reworked into Indian
forms. Some of the objects had
been cast and the rough edges
smoothed with coarse files. Ar-
cheologist, Mr. Sears, suggested
that the gold and silver were done
by Spaniards, who were following
Indian directions as they melted
and formed the gold and silver.
The suggestion they were fol-
lowing directions could probably
be better interpreted as slaves fol-
lowing orders.
Lawrence E. Will, the noted
Lake Okeechobee historian,
writes about a clam shell found
in a Fort Center mound. Mr. Wills
said a curios letter had been writ-
ten on both sides of the clam


shell. A scratched line going to 'a
circle with an "X"' and the word
Rio, for river was found on the
first shell. An etched cross gave
directions NORT, for north and
ESTE, for east on the shell.
A large Christian cross was
scratched on the second shell with
the letters, XX XX + LA etched
below. Archaeologists think the
LA stands for leagues and the X's
mean 40 plus. A Spanish league at
that time was approximately 2.5
miles, so that would put Fort Cen-
ter about 90 miles from where?
The second shell had the
name.Calos scratched on it. Calos
was a Calusa town on the West
coast. The person who wrote
this information was educated
and knew distance. He created a
map and was hoping it would be
traded and found by a Spanish ex-
pedition. We will never know this
mystery man, but it is clear that
the sender never got a reply until
the 19th century.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian Gold
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "A Walk in'The Past." This
Fort Center article can come alive
for you, your friends and families

da Fish and Wildlife Commission

Fisheating Creek and share your
stories about the creek with the
Clewiston Museum at Fort Cen-
ter's grand opening. Take a mo-
ment to stop by the Clewiston

story.

Nestle Pure Life Water
bottle project
Westside elementary has been
hard at work this school year. One
of the major yearlong projects the


students and faculty are working
on is the Nestle Pure Life Water
Bottle collection. The school is
collecting not only the bottles for
recycling, but the labels from the
Nestle bottles. The labels are then
saved and redeemed for physi-
cal education equipment for the
school. The biggest goal is to save


more labels than any other reg-
istered school in the nation! The
one school who saves the most
during the months of September
through February will learn a
new playground for their school!
So far, Westside has collected
nearly 5,000 labels. Our goal is
over 15,000. Westside invites


the community to join us in our
quest for new physical education
equipment and the possibility of
a new playground. For anyone
interested in helping us reach our
goal, please call 863-983-1570 and
a representative from the school
will be more than happy to pick
up the bottles and the labels!


Hendry County reads Fahrenheit 451


Hendry County Library Co-
operative is one of 208 libraries,
municipalities, and arts, culture,
higher education, and science
organizations to receive a grant
to host The Big Read from Sep-
tember 2008 June 2009. The
Big Read gives communities the
opportunity to come together to
read, discuss, and celebrate one
of 23 selections from American
and world literature. The Big Read
in Hendry County will focus on
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury.
Activities will take place Janu-
ary 13 starting with a kickoff at
7 p.m. at the Clewiston Library.
County Commissioner Janet Tay-
lor and Clewiston Mayor Mali
Chamness will issue a proclama-
tion to begin the community wide
read. Jeff Klinkenberg, St. Peters-
burg Times writer, will be guest
speaker. Copies of the book will
be given out free to attendees.
The latest Big Read grantees
represent 46 states, the-District of
Columbia, and the U.S. Virgin Is-
lands. To date, the NEA has given
more than 500 grants to support
local Big Read projects.
"We feel fortunate to have re-
ceived this grant for the second
straight year. This enables us to
read a classic book selection that


can be enjoyed by school chil-
dren and adults alike," said Bar-
bara Oeffner, Clewiston Library
Director.
"Everything the NEA does we
do in partnership. I am delighted
to announce our 208 new part-
ners in The Big Read. Some are
new to the program, some are
returning, but all of them have
answered the call to action to get
our country reading again," said
NEA Chairman Dana Gioia.
The selected organizations will
receive Big Read grants ranging
from $2,500 to $20,000 to pro-
mote and carry out community-
based reading programs featuring
activities such as read-a-thons,
book discussions, lectures, movie
screenings, and performing arts
events. Participating communities
also receive high-quality, free-of-
charge educational materials to
supplement each title, including
Reader's, Teacher's, and Audio
Guides.
"With this latest round of
grants, I am proud to say that The
Big Read has supported more
than 500 public library partner-
ships," said Anne-Imelda M. Ra-
dice, Director of the Institute of
Museum and Library Services, the
NEA's lead federal partner for The


Big Read. "Through this program,
public libraries continue to dem-
onstrate their value in communi-
ties as centers of engagement,
literacy, and lifelong learning. I
am particularly delighted by the
innovative public programming
born out of library and museum
collaborations."
The Big Read is an initiative of
the National Endowment for the
Arts designed to restore reading
to the center of American culture.

County Sheriff.


WEST PALM BEACH-While
campaigning this year, Palm
Beach County Sheriff Ric Brad-
shaw made a commitment to the
residents of the Glades: to give
back at least fifty-percent of the
funds raised from his re-election
campaign in the community back
to the people.
Sheriff Bradshaw recently
made good on his promise by
presenting a $5,000 gift to Glades
Healthcare Foundation, the non-
profit organization leading the
fund raising campaign for a new
community hospital that will
serve 40,000 residents along the


southern shore of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
The new facility, Palm Beach
County's only public hospital, will
replace Glades General Hospital.
Sheriff Bradshaw is proud of
the link he has had to the Glades
region for over thirty years.
His brother was a state trooper
in the Pahokee area.
"My connection to the Glades
community is strong," said Sheriff
Bradshaw. "Our work is to en-
sure that the quality of life for all
of the people in our county is the
best it can be, and healthcare is a
big part of that."


Glades Healthcare Founda-
tion is leading the fund raising
campaign for a new 70-bed, $73
million community hospital in the
Glades.
Thanks to a commitment of
$53 million from the Health Care
District of Palm Beach County, and
the generosity of individuals and
organizations, the campaign has
reached 89 percent of its goal.
For more information about
the campaign, visit www.

Secretary Schafer



Announces 2009 DCP Signup


Enrollment for the 2009 Di-
rect and Counter-cyclical Pay-
ment (DCP) Program for farms
with base acres are taking place
now both online and at local
USDA Service Centers and will
continue until June 1.
Producers are urged to make
use of the eDCP automated web-
site to sign up; however, produc-
ers can visit any USDA Service
Center or their administratively
assigned center to complete their
2009 DCP contract.
The June 1 deadline is man-
datory for all participants. USDA
will not accept any late-filed ap-
plications.
The electronic DCP (or eDCP)
service saves producers time,
reduces paperwork and speeds
up contract processing at USDA
Farm Service Agency (FSA) offi-
cers. It is available to all produc-
ers who are eligible to participate
in the DCP program and can be
accessed at http://www.fsa.usda.
gov/dcp.
To access the service, produc-
ers must have an active USDA
eAuthentication Level 2 account,
which requires filling out an on-
line registration form at http://
www.eauth.egov.usda.gov fol-
lowed by a visit to the local
USDA Service Center for identity
verification.
USDA computes DCP Pro-
gram payments using base acres
and payment yields established
for each farm. Eligible producers
receive direct payments at rates
established by statute regardless
of market prices.


For 2009, eligible producers
may request to receive advance
direct payments based on 22
percent of the direct payment
for each commodity associated
with the farm. USDA will issue
advance direct payments begin-
ning Dec. 2008.
Counter-cyclical payment
rates vary depending on mar-
ket prices. Counter-cyclical pay-
ments are issued only when the
effective price for a commodity is
below its target price.
The effective price for each
covered commodity and peanuts
equals the direct payment rate
plus the higher of the national
average market price received
by farmers during the 12-month
marketing year or the national
average loan rate.
Producers who are eligible
for the DCP Program will also be
eligible to enroll in the Average
Crop Revenue Election (ACRE)
Program. The enrollment period
for ACRE Program will begin in
the spring.
Producers may first enroll in
the DCP Program, elect to re-
ceive advance direct payments
and then later modify their en-
rollment to include the ACRE
program or they may wait and
elect to enroll in DCP and ACRE
at the same time in the spring
2009.
The optional ACRE Program
provides a safety net based on
State revenue losses and acts in
place of the price-based safety
net of county-cyclical payments
under DCP. A farm's payment is


based on a revenue guarantee
calculated using a 5-year average
state yield and the most recent
2-year national price for each
eligible commodity. For the 2009
crop, the 2-year price average
will be based on the 2007 and
2008 crop years.
An ACRE payment is issued
when both the State and the
farm have incurred a revenue
loss. The payment is based on
83.3 percent (85 percent in 2012)
of the farm's planted acres times
the difference between the State
ACRE guarantee and the State
revenue time the ratio of the
farm's yield divided by the State
expected yield.
The total number of planted
acres for which a producer may
receive ACRE payments may
not exceed the total base on the
farm.
In exchange for participating
in ACRE, in addition to not receiv-
ing counter-cyclical payments, a
farm's direct payment is reduced
by 20 percent, and marketing as-
sistance loan rates are reduced
by 30 percent.
The decision to enroll in the
ACRE Program is irrevocable.
The owner of the farm and all
producers on the farm must
agree to enroll in ACRE. Once
enrolled, the farm shall be en-
rolled for that initial crop year
and will remain in ACRE through
the 2012 crop year.


First Bank gives $100,000



to Hospital Foundation


Submitted photo/HRMC
The Hendry Regional Medical Center Foundation was presented a check in the amount of
$100,000 by First Bank of Clewiston. The money is intended to be used toward paying for the
construction of a new emergency room, surgery suite and laboratory.


By Glenda Wilson
On Wednesday, Dec. 31, First
Bank employees, along with their
board members and members of
the Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter (HRMC) Foundation, gathered
around First Bank's Christmas tree
to present the hospital foundation
with a check for $100,000.
In 2006, the First Bank of
Clewiston made an initial pledge
of $500,000 to the HRMC Founda-
tion; this was First Bank's third gift
towards that pledge. The funds
will be restricted to the construc-
tion of the new emergency room,
surgery suite and laboratory at


Hendry Regional Medical Center.
Though global financial lend-
ing opportunities have greatly
affected the ability to borrow,
the Foundation and the Hospital
Board of Authority are committed
to moving forward with the emer-
gency room construction project.
At their September board meet-
ing, the hospital board of direc-
tors selected and hired DEJA (Da-
vid E. Johnson Architect) firm to
design the new emergency room,
surgery suite, and laboratory. This
firm will work under the direction
of John Albert from American
Health Facilities Development
(AHFD), the project management


firm hired to oversee the con-
struction development. DEJA has
begun the preliminary develop-
ment of architectural schematics.
In the meantime, Hospital Admin-
istration is diligently negotiating
with lenders for the financing of
the new facility, which will cost
approximately 17 million dollars.
Once financial negotiations are
completed, the architectural de-
sign and engineering plans will
be submitted to the State for ap-
proval.
The hospital foundation mem-
bers wish to thank First Bank for
their wonderful generosity and
continued support.

Like the Lark: Realizing our Potential


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"In the beginning was the
Word, and the Word was with
God, and the Word. was God.
He was with God in the begin-
ning. Through him all things were
made; without him nothing was
made that has been made -- to all
who received Him, to those who
believed in His name, He gave the
right to become children of God,
children born not of natural de-
scent, nor of human decision or a
husband's will, but born of God."
This prologue to John is fo-
cused not on what we have been,
or even what we are now.
Rather it focuses on what we
can yet be. A great thought now
that we have entered into the new


year!
There was a young man pedal-
ing around a college campus on
a bicycle.
He was wearing a T-shirt. On
the T-shirt it said, "I'm going to be
a doctor."
There was also a sign on the
back of his bicycle. It proclaimed:
"I'm going to be a Mercedes."
There was someone who un-
derstood his potential. All of us
have unrealized potential.
When each of us came into
this world, we brought with us an
amazing amount of potential.
The Suzuki method that has
helped millions of children learn
to play the violin is an example of
realizing some of this potential.
Suzuki shared that he had two


moments in his life that gave him
h'is insights.
Suzuki's first revelation came
when he was visiting a building
that served as a giant incubator
for thousands of Japanese song-
birds known as larks. The breed-
ers of these larks take literally
thousands of eggs and incubate
them in giant, warm, silent halls
that act as a gigantic nest.
There is only one sound that
the tiny songbirds hear as they
break through the shells of their
eggs. It is the sound of another
lark, a very special adult lark, that
is chosen because of its singing
ability.
Suzuki noticed to his amaze-
ment that every little chick that
hatched automatically began to


copy the master singer lark.
Even more remarkable, after
a few days he observed that each
chick, having started out by purely
copying songs, began to develop
its own variations on the original
Master Song.
The breeders wait until the
chick musicians have developed
their own styles, and then select
from them the next Master Singer,
and so the process continues.
Suzuki's reasoning: "If a bird's
tiny, tiny brain can learn so per-
fectly, then surely the human
brain, with its vastly superior
abilities, should be able to do the
same and better!"
This line of reasoning led Su-
zuki to his next revelation: "Every
Japanese child learns to speak


Japanese!"
It seems like an amazing grasp
of the obvious, but what Suzuki
had realized was something so
apparent no one could see what
it meant.
Any baby, born in any country,
automatically learns, within two
years, the language of that coiun-
try.
This means that every normal
baby's brain is capable of learning
millions of potential languages.
This means, that given the
proper environment, the human
creature is capable of acquiring
an amazing amount of informa-
tion and skills in a short time.
God has placed within each
of us enormous potential, mental
potential, physical potential, but


the greatest of all is spiritual po-
tential, the potential to become
children of God.
Notice, the Scriptures don't say
that Christ came into the world so
that we can improve our I.Q. or
that we will be able to run the 440
in record time.
It says that whoever receives
Christ and believes on His name
has the potential to become a
child of God.
What does that mean?
It means that you and I have
the potential to be like Christ.
We have a potential within our
hearts and souls for peace, a po-;
tential for joy, a potential for hope,
a potential for love, and a poten-;
tial for forgiveness that is greater;
than we can possibly imagine.


New Year: Redeeming time The true, the Eternal now


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
John was a retired military of-
ficer He'd tell me each Sunday
morning "You started two min-
utes late today" or "You began
a minute early this morning." I
asked him how he was certain
and he said he set his watch by the
radio. One day I asked him "John,
how old is this outfit 2,000 years
old?" And he muttered "Yeah." I
said "Remember, John, for the
first fourteen hundred years, they
didn't have clocks!" (I thought
"outfit" would be a good word to
refer to the Church for a military
man. He knew what I was talking
about.)
Actually, we conduct our lives
to the arbitrary agreement we call
"time" arid it is the means that
makes living possible. We rely on
appointments, the ordering of our
days, regular times for the things
we have to do. The great things,
though, are what we recall, not
in hours or days but by events.
I'd have to think what I was do-
ing in the Fall of 1963, but if you
asked me where I was when Ken-
nedy was shot, I could tell you
instantly.
My grandmother read me


Bible stories and told me about
right and wrong; perhaps the
strongest influence in shaping my
life toward the ministry. She died
when I was eight years old, but
she lived long enough to have a
tremendous impact; not hours or
days but what she did events.
The Greeks had two words
for time; one related to "clock
time" and the other related to
"event time." The latter, event
time, is Biblical time. I believe
Church is about what we do to-
gether to worship God; not when
we get started or when we end.
Paul writes in his Epistle to the
Romans "One man esteems one
day as better than another, while
another man esteems them all
alike. (14:5ff)." He adds "He who
observes the day, observes it in
honor of the Lord (v.6)."
It is not how many we have, or
how much time, but what we did
with the time allotted to us. 'Rvo
thousand and nine opened with a
host of problems, war fronts, eco-
nomic problems, political entities
in transition, job problems, and
on and on. The resolutions made
or the promises given will not be
something we can demand; but
we can get underway with them.
It is evident that many of the so-


lutions needed are still a long way
off.- I've come to believe, though,
that we accomplish things by lay-
ing the foundations and doing
our part, no matter how small.
This Christmas I received many
cards and letters from people that
I knew during past ministries and
places I've served. We shared in
fellowship, touched each other's
lives, lived as a Church family for
awhile; and those who shared
had an impact on my life, and ap-
parently I had an impact on theirs
too.
They are an affirmation of the
foundations laid, the use of time
as God would have intended and
the bonds continue today even af-
ter a separation of miles and days.
We observed the day, we honored
the Lord, what was shared will
last for eternity. May this new year
be for all of us a time of hallowed
opportunities to share in God's
name and in His work. May we
bring the gifts of faith, hope and
love to others, laying foundations
and letting God give the growth.
To paraphrase a prayer; "I may
not be able to do everything but
I can do something..." That is my
prayer for 2009, beginning, plant-
ing, laying foundations, letting
God give the growth. Amen.


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
The New Year Holiday is chiefly
a secular one, merely the starting
date for a calendar set up by man
for his own convenience.
But as a milestone in a life
given to us by a loving Father, the
day is one that is well deserving of
prayer meditation and thought.
There is nothing really new
about the New Year we were on
January 1st what we were on De-
cember 31str.For each person, the
character of our life on any given
day is the sum total of our yester-
days with one important quali-
fication: At any given moment,
with God's help, we can change
direction, steer, rather than drift.
Are we defeated by past mis-
takes haunted by past failures?.If
we dwell on them, we will repeat
them.
Are we convinced that these
failures were the fault of others? If
so, there will be little or no incen-
tive to take personal inventory, to
look within for the source of our
difficulty.
But what if we refuse to hold
memories of past mistakes in our
consciousness?


What if we recognize and act
on the truth that right now we
can start afresh? And it is true if
only we turn to Him for guid-
ance.
Right now we are the sons of
God, if we have believed the Gos-
pel, Repented of Sins, Confessed
faith in Jesus Christ, and have
been immersed for the remission
of sins to receive the Holy Spirit.
Galatians 3:27 says "For as
many of you as have been bap-
tized into Christ have put on
Christ." He is our genuine spiri-
tual identity.
We have only to claim what
He has already freely given us.
On New Year's Day or any other
day we can decide to live NOW,
rather than in a dead yesterday or
an uncertain tomorrow!
And when we do, we will see
that His genuine, eternal vow is
all we ever have or need.
Some are asking themselves,,
"How can I be a triumphant
Christian in this New Year. The
converted sinner loves God and
is resolved to live for God. But he
soon realizes that there are con-
flicts. We have an adversary, Sa-
tan, who seeks constantly to side-
track us and defeat us. We can
overcome him and be victorious


each day if we will. Here's how:
1.Yield to the Lordship of
Christ. This is what discipleship
is, to follow Him as Master of our
lives.
2.Pray! This is communion
with God. In this way the Lord can
impart to us wisdom and strength,
and provide all our needs.
3.Read God's Word every day.
My wife and I read the "Everyday
With Jesus" Bible each morning
that takes one through the Bible
in a year. The Bible gives us light
and direction. Obey its precepts
and trust its promises.
4.Have fellowship with God's
people. Align yourself with a
church which believes and teach-
es the word of God and is not a
denomination.
5.Be filled with the Holy Spirit.
In proportion as we yield our-
selves unto Him, He will fill us
with God's love and power and
all the fruits of the Spirit.
6.Witness to others. Share the
Good News with as many possi-
ble. Romans 1:16 says: "The Gos-
pel is the power of God unto to
salvation to those who believe."
7.Watch for the return of
Christ for "the coming of the Lord
draweth nigh" (James 5:8).

Crime .
Continued From Page 1
Since then, one of the dogs had
gone missing. The suspect said
he gave that puppy away.
The suspect denied that the
dogs belonged to him.
Investigators arrested him.
'lWo days after the crime, Mr.
Morgan said the puppy took its
first steps again.


"She's been on painkillers be-
cause she's been awfully sore,"
said Mi. Morgan, who added that
the dog was being given two pain
pills a day and has been kept on
antibiotics.
To the worker, who is more ac-
customed to seeing animal aban-
donment cases, the crime was
Surprising. The accusation against
the suspect is hard to believe.
The animal hospital that pro-
vided first aid to the dog did not
provide comment, citing patient/


doctor confidentiality.
"We're still watching her
for neurological damage. From
what we can tell, from what the
vet said, there were blows to the
head," said Mr. Morgan. "If we
can keep her healthy, and she has
no neurological problems, she'll
be alright."
The state of Florida does
not have a defined law against
zoosexuality. In these cases, in-
vestigators instead pursue animal
cruelty charges.


In a fortunate twist, the Caloo-
sa Humane Society has stepped
forward to provide the dog with
antibiotics and has committed.
to continuing the care of the dog
once it is released by animal con-
trol.
And the dog has nothing else
to fear.
"We already have people
standing by for adopting the dog,"
Mr. Morgan said.

efforts to save him.
An anonymous caller reported
a neglect case at a home on Cen-
tral Avenue in Clewiston on Jan.
3.
Responding Sgt. Juan Soto
found a dog lying on the ground
that "had a look of suffering." It
seemed as though he was tied in
the front of the residence as a se-
curity dog, and his bark was low,
the sergeant reported.
Animal control was contacted
and, since the owner of the home
wasn't in, left a note about the ne-
glected dog.


Stabbing
Continued From Page 1
Investigators say they found
the occupants cleaning up a large
amount of blood from the apart-
ment. The suspect's mother, one
of the victims, was holding a tow-
el around her arm and told offi-
cers she had been stabbed. She
could not tell officers, however,
whether it was her daughter who
was holding the knife when she
was stabbed or not.
Tushenia, meanwhile, said she



Sheriff
Continued From Page 1
York City's highly successful re-
sponse to Times Square crime is-
sues. The chief deputy said it is a
"mechanism to capture statistics
and data from employees includ-
ing road deputies and bookkeep-
ers." The raw data is formatted to
highlight work loads and efficien-
+ cy,; so that residents' needs may
be adequately addressed.
He added that managers will
be "empowered to make deci-
sions." He said managers will be
held accountable for deputies'
performance and be provided
with the tools to correct any prob-
lems. Weekly progress reports
will be required with rewards
given for good jobs as well as as-
sistance for resolving issues.
The sheriff also said there will
be more law enforcement pres-
ence in outlying areas.
No desk jockeys allowed the
sheriff's management team will
be "hands on," heading out to
the streets regularly to see what is
happening for themselves.
The chief deputy also said the
new administration will break the
"us/them" barriers within the de-
partment becoming one team
and sharing information within
the department.
The public can also expect
to be privy to as much informa-
tion as possible. HCSO is a gov-
ernment agency, the sheriff said,
and the public has right to know
about budget. and other impor-
tant issues.
The new sheriff admits that
he and his team will have limited
fiscal control their first year, since
the budget has already been es-
tablished. He promises to work
with the county, commissioners,
though, and has already been in
contact with County Administra-
tor Judi Kennington-Korf.
With the budget as tight as it
is, the new administration will be
looking at each classification be-
fore authorizing budget items.

When they returned to follow
up, officials could not find the dog
and the owner could not be con-

The animal control worker
and an officer entered the yard
and found the American Bulldog
in bad shape.
"Every bone on the dog's body
was showing," said Sgt. Soto.
"You could see his face and eyes
crying out for help."
According to the arrest report,
the water the dog had to drink
was green and his only source of
sustenance was a container with
Doritos and insect-infested scraps
of food.
The true signs of cruelty, how-
ever, could be seen in the way
that the dog reacted to the animal

Jan. 5. Taking advantage of this,
he swore in law enforcement and
corrections officers Monday and
Tuesday, again to take effect at
midnight Jan. 5. He said he felt it
was critical to swear in these em-
ployees, making their transition
as seamless as possible for the of-
ficers and public.
The new sheriff took part in
the public swearing in of all the
Constitutional officers Tuesday
morning in the new circuit judge's
chambers.
Sheriff Whidden said he was
the only sheriff-elect at the Florida
Sheriff's Association new sher-
iffs conference not hired on as
an employee of the department
after the election. Consequently,
he and other members of his ad-
ministrative team had to pay their
expenses tot he conference out of
pocket.
Sheriff Whidden said that,
while all crimes will be addressed,
he sees the most immediate need
as addressing gang activity. He
said it is growing quickly, espe-
cially in the Clewiston area.
The sheriff is also aware that
economic factors and cutbacks
will have a deep impression on
his administration, but hopes to
focus on working toward the de-
partment's accreditation when
appropriate.
However, he pointed out, "It's
law enforcement first."
