A wife, a child and running,


Local athlete
competes in Boston
Marathon; sets his
sight on Olympics
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Austin Rich-
mond finished 39th place in
the Boston Marathon -- out of
22,000.
Despite the performance, the
Clewiston native thinks he could
have done better, although the
person who did win spent the few
immediate hours after his victory
at a hospital, and the favorite to
win left on a stretcher.
But he could have done better.
He knows it.
It's the thought that drives him
to continue.
Austin took to running in mid-
dle school and offers a candid
view why. He knew during his
later school years that he would
either have to excel at academics
or get a job. He wasn't doing ei-
ther, he said, and took to running
quite naturally.
While he runs his normal route
between Clewiston and Moore
Haven, running through the back
roads and the cane fields to Joe's
Fish Camp, Austin thinks about a
lot of things.
"It depends on how fast
I'm going," he said, referring
to what fills his mind while he
treks through his run. "I'm think-
ing about getting better. Where
I want to be. I think about the
work out that day."
He thinks about his wife, Kry-
styne, and the baby she's due to
give birth to (Sept. 24 is the lucky
day).
And his thoughts inevitably
veer to his main ambition. But
he manages to make even this
sound less of an ambition than a
kind of reward to the people who
have supported him.
"Sometimes, I'll think about
my family, how happy they'll be if
they see me in the Olympics one
day."
Austin has already shown
flashes of what could be an en-

Austin Richmond has competed in several marathons, in-
cluding one in which he got first place. The Clewiston resi-
dent hopes to continue running and qualify for the Olympics,


his ultimate dream.
during career.
In his first ever marathon
in Jacksonville last year before
Christmas, Austin finished first.
The win had nothing to do with
beginner's luck, although Austin
contends that there weren't "a
whole lot of people" competing;
nearly 2,000, to be more precise.
A small number, indeed.
His role models include Frank
Shorter, who won gold in the Mar-
athon event at the 1972 Summer
Olympics in Munich, and Steve
Prefontaine, a long-distance run-
ner whose life was cut short in a
car accident.
His running has its support


system in his family. As an ex-
ample, his father studies weather
patterns for him before a major
event. They follow him to each
run and encourage Austin to con-
tinue.
Near or at the top of that list is
his wife, who calls him the "Sugar
Nazi" for his strict diet regiment
- a diet of "no sugar, no refined
foods. No fried foods. I eat whole
grains, fish, lean meat, fruits and
vegetables, and that's it," he said.
His exercise routine is far more
grueling than anything he limits
himself from eating, though.

Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Members of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office and
the Clewiston Police Department
arrested a man who is accused of
preparing crack cocaine for sale.
The suspect had a police scan-
ner on at the time, but the joint ef-
fort was not broadcast in time for
him to get rid of the $4,600 in cash,
and small bags of narcotics that
was recovered during the seizure.
The arrest happened at an
apartment building on WC. Ow-
ens in Clewiston on May 1, shortly
after 5 in the morning.
Officers breached the front door
and found Anthony Decarlo Lyons
Sr., 47, in the residence. He was de-
tained without incident.
Minutes later, the man sat in his
living room couch, according to
the arrest report, while he direct-
ed officers to areas where he had
hidden the drugs, agreeing with
officers when they suspected the
drugs were meant for sale.
He told officials they would find
a stack of money under his bed,
and a bag with approximately 25
to 35 pieces of what appeared to
be crack cocaine in a pair of pants
next to his bed.
He also told officers they would
find more narcotics hidden in a

things are just not the same. Anxiety or just
feeling the blues is common. Talking really
helps... getting connected with available re-
sources really helps! Project H.O.P.E. is a

The Spanish Indians and Fish Rancheros


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Brown palm fronds resting on the weath-
ered shelters, stirred to the gentle ocean
breezes that sprang across the village com-
pound in refreshing waves of cool air.
Men and women paused momentarily
from their labors, as the cool breezes ca-
ressed their bodies and brought temporary
relief from the sweltering heat.
Fishermen stood at the rough, hand-hewn
tables, working under the sun's scorching
gaze to clean the freshly caught Mullet that
flopped about resiliently in the tropical heat.
Knife blades flashed in the sunlight, as expe-
rienced, calloused hands, moved in rhythm,
heading and gutting, the glistening piles of
fish.
Tiny plumes of white water erupted into
the air, as the disemboweled Mullet were
hurriedly tossed into large, wooden barrels
of seawater. Women laughed and gossiped
amid the splashes, while they washed and
removed the offal from each mullet's split,
bellied cavity.
The children were summoned after the
washed fish had been placed on thick layers
of freshly cut palm fronds.
Soon scurrying children were darting
back and forth across the hot, beach sands,
carrying the slippery fish to the brine vats.
The fish would lay submerged in the vats
during the night, while the salt, enriched wa-
ters permeated their pearly, succulent flesh.
The next day, the fish were removed from
the brine and covered in crusty, white gran-
ules of salt.
The salt-encased fish were then stacked
on the crudely fashioned racks that criss-
crossed the village compound. Days later,
the dried, preserved fish slabs, likened to
wooden boards, were placed in hemp stacks
and stored for shipment to Cuba.
Commercial fishing became the first
great industry in South Florida. Its legacy
was born back in the day, when Florida's
pristine waters were blackened by miles of
migrating fish.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past"
and read about the Spanish Indians and Fish
Rancheros in South Florida.
Florida Indian populations were severely
reduced by European diseases and slave
raids during the 1700s.
These deadly encounters created such
mayhem and vulnerability in the South Flor-
ida Indian Nations that they sought refuge
with their old enemy, the Spanish.
An unofficial truce was established be-
tween the South Florida Indians and the
Spanish.
Two hundred years of hostilities were
forgotten, and the Spanish became not only
allies, but protectorates to the South Florida
Indians.
The Spanish supplied the Indians with
firearms, supplies, and safe havens.
A Spanish mission was established in
1743, on the Miami River, to aid the perse-
cuted Indians.
However, the Indians never cared for the
religious aspects of the mission, much to the
priests' annoyance.
They came only for the "Loaves and
Fishes", which were the security the Spanish


soldiers provided at the mission.
Slave raids continued in South Florida.
The situation became so desperate that
Calusas started migrating to Cuba. The first
recorded migration occurred in 1704, and
was followed by other migrations as the
slave raids intensified. Most of the Calusas
that fled to Cuba died of European diseases.
In 1711, two hundred and seventy Calusa
Indians migrated to Cuba. In a short time,
only seventy remained.
These survivors opted to return to Florida
and face the perils of slavery, rather than re-
main in Cuba. The deadly diseases in Cuba
extracted such heavy death tolls on migrat-
ing Calusas that many became distrustful
and refused free Spanish passage to Cuba.
Some historians believe remnants of oth-
er South Florida Indian Nations migrated to
Cuba to escape the Indian slavers.
European diseases probably sealed their
fate, when they arrived on Cuban soil.
A fishing industry slowly developed dur-
ing these chaotic times along the South Flor-
ida coast. Spanish fishermen, who had once
feared the Indians, now had the opportunity
to set up fish shacks or rancheros along the
east and west coasts of Florida.
Over the years, a strong bond developed
between the Spanish fishermen and Indi-
ans.
It was a bond that would endure into the
1800s and become a problem for the United
States during the second Seminole Indian
War.
Some historians think that the South
Florida Indians living on the Spanish fishing
settlements eventually lost their ethic culture
and became known as "Spanish Indians."
A priest named Father Alana, noted in 1743,
that "For the most part the adult men un-
derstand and speak Castilian Spanish mod-
erately because of the frequent commerce
with the boatmen from Havana."
Spanish documents indicate the Indians
and Spanish were marrying and producing
offspring. Succeeding generations probably
lost much of their native identity, leaning
more toward the Spanish culture that domi-
nated the fishing settlements.
The Spanish fisheries brought trade
goods and protection to the South Florida
Indians, but at a cost. The Florida Indians
were now in close contact with fishermen
that traveled to Cuba.
Spanish fishermen traveling back and
forth from Cuba unknowingly carried con-
tractual European diseases, which brought
more demise to the already diminutive
groups of Indians living on the fishing settle-
ments.
Another dark side of this relationship was
rum. The Cuban fishermen carried rum on
board their ships for personal use and traded
it freely with the Indians, who demanded it.
Alcohol wasn't new to the South Florida In-
dians, who had salvaged it from many of the
Spanish ships over the centuries, but now it
was always available.
The Indians couldn't handle the rum's
alcohol, so it wrecked havoc on the drinker
and his family members.
The Indian's passion for Cuban rum was
noted by Father Alana, who attributed some
of the decline in the South Florida Indian
populations to the dissolution and excesses


linked to the natives' access to alcohol from
the frequent shipwrecks and from their work
with the Spanish fishermen.
Father Alana noted, "The Indian would
give the equivalent of 100 pesos for a flask
of rum that he and his party were chided
constantly for not having brought any, and
that the Indians told them flatly that without
the rum, they neither can be nor wish to be
Christians."
Father Alana went on to say that the In-
dians had already traded away most of the
firearms given to them by Cuba's governor
to defend themselves against the Uchise
Indian slaves, having bartered the guns for
rum.
He said, "When the Indians became
drunk, they lost all sense of moderation and
took on an extraordinary brutality, so that
there is no longer a son for the father, or a
wife for the husband, and that flight to the
woods was a family's only security."

week's edition "A Walk in The Past," on the
Fishing Rancheros, established around the
Province of Calus, which is present day Port

Swine Flu: An Update


As of May 4 there have been five con-
firmed cases of Swine Flu (H IN 1) in Florida.
Two of those cases are in Lee County. There
is no vaccine available right now to pro-
tect against swine flu, but there is antiviral
medication available to treat any confirmed
cases.
A toll free information line has been es-
tablished to address an increasing number
of calls from the public requesting Swine Flu
information. The number is: 1-800-342-3557
and it is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments are working closely with
School Administration, Emergency Manage-
ment, Health Care Providers, and the com-
munity to ensure that the communication
of information and updates are issued in
a timely manner. The current strategy is to
educate the public on how to protect your-
self and what to do if you are sick. For your
protection, please do the following:
Avoid close contact with people who are
coughing or otherwise appear ill.
Wash hands frequently with soap and
water to lessen the spread of any respiratory
illnesses.
Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
Cover your nose and mouth with a tissue
when you cough or sneeze. Throw the tis-


sue in the trash after you use it.
If you get sick with influenza, it is recom-
mended that you stay home from work or
school and limit contact with others to keep
from infecting them.
The symptoms of swine flu in people
are very similar to the symptoms of regular
seasonal flu and include: -Fever (over 100
degree Fahrenheit) Cough Sore Throat -
Body Aches Headache Chills Fatigue.
Some people have reported diarrhea and
vomiting associated with swine flu. If you
experience any of the above symptoms,
please call your health care provider first
and discuss whether you need to be seen in
their office, emergency department or stay
home.
People with respiratory illness should stay
home from work or school to avoid spread-
ing infections, including influenza, to others
in the community.
People with influenza virus infection
should be considered potentially contagious
as long as they are symptomatic and possi-
ble for up to 7 days following illness onset.
Germs can be spread when a person
touches something that is contaminated
with germs and then touches his or her eyes,
nose, or mouth.
If you have any questions, please contact
your healthcare provider.


Paul Miller Path to


Wellness, Grand Prize Winner


By Glenda
Wilson
Although it may
come as no surprise
to competing partic-
ipants in the eight-
week Path to Well-
ness Program, Paul Paul Miller.
Miller, of Hendry
Regional Medical Center's IT Department,
has won the $500 grand prize for losing
the most percentage of body weight. In the
end, it paid off in more ways than one for
Paul he lost six inches in his hips, four
inches in his waist, fourteen percent of his
total body weight, and 39 whole pounds!!
Paul turned drudgery into daily excite-
ment, as he began dropping pounds and
inches. If one was looking for a magic
diet pill, it wouldn't be found at Hendry
Regional; rather, courage, discipline and
self-control were the magical ingredients
that helped Paul Miller and many other em-
ployees to persevere towards their path to
healthier lifestyles. These individuals were
motivated and inspired as they accessed
the Path-to-Wellness website, sought infor-


nation on national weight loss challeng-
es, committed to daily exercise regimes,
learned the value of nutrition, and counted
calories during their 56-day journey, which
began on February 18th.
Sponsored through a grant provided by
the Lake Okeechobee Rural Health Net-
work and the Everglades Area Health Edu-
cation Center, in conjunction with the local
hospital, this program was created to help
employees develop and maintain healthier
and happier standards of living through
weight loss, smoking cessation, and diabe-
tes education.
The Hendry Regional Medical Center
employees who joined this program are
quite proud of themselves. Their toned
bodies, glowing faces and even new
clothes (for those who dropped in sizes)
generate enough interest and curiosity for
people to stop and ask, "What's your se-
cret; how did you lose that weight?" Their
answer "It was my Path to Wellness."

Is your home firewise?


Become a partner in fire protection. The
simple truth is that our fire departments
don't have enough resources to protect ev-
ery home in the County or City.
Much of what is known about protect-
ing homes from wildland fire is based on
the research of the U. S. Forest Fire Lab in
Missoula, Montana. They have found that
most homes lost to fire is due to ignition
of the two most vulnerable parts of your
home:
*The roof and eaves
*The area immediately surrounding
your home or structure
Home ignitions usually occur over rela-
tively short distances tens of yards, not
hundred of feet from little things associated
with either:
*Fire brands (wind blown embers)
landing on and around the structure or
flames from slow-moving, low-intensity
surface fire contacting flammable portions
of the structure.
This means the homeowner can play
a significant role in reducing home loss-
es from wildfires by reducing fuels and
through landscaping in the "home ignition
zone," an area that extends outward from
the home 100 200 feet in all directions.
The most critical area is a zone of "defen-
sible space" within 30 feet of the structure.
Inside your "defensible space":
*Trim lower branches up to 10 feet on
tall trees, remove vines from the trees, and
keep shrubbery away from the pine trees
so that a fire on the ground cannot climb
up these fuel ladders to the tree tops.
*Keep combustible items like wood
piles, compost piles, gas grills, gas cans,
and propane tanks at least 30 feet away
from your house. Clear away dead vegeta-
tion, pine needles and branches.
*Use mowed grass, gravel walkways,
and mulched plantings near your home.
Although mulch helps retain soil moisture,
it must be kept moist or it becomes a fuel
source.
*Remove flammable plants like saw
palmetto, wax myrtle, yaupon holly, red
cedar and gall berry from within 30 feet
from your home.
How do you maintain a lean, clean,
and green landscape within 30 feet of your
structures? The important thing is that

action MUST be taken before a wildfire
threatens.
-Lean small amounts of flammable
vegetation
Clean no accumulations of dead veg-
etation
*Green plants are healthy and green;
lawn is well irrigated.
Walk around outside your home and
look carefully at the land near your home.
The type, size, and density of the plants
determine wildfire risk. Some places may
have characteristics of more than one cat-
egory. Use the following criteria to assess
your risk:
You are at Low Risk if you see:
*Bare ground, improved pasture, or
widely spaced grass clumps or plants.
*Moist forest, mostly leafy trees, or
mostly large trees.
*A few plants growing low to the
ground.
Oak leaves or other broad leaves cov-
ering the ground.
You are at Medium Risk if you see:
*Thick, continuous grasses, weeds, or
shrubs.
*Continuous thin layer of pine needles
and scattered pine trees.
*Scattered palmettos or shrubs up to
3 feet tall separated by patches of grass or
sand.
*A clear view into or across the unde-
veloped area.
You live in a High Risk, Fire-Prone Area
if you see:
*A thick bed of pine needles and lots of
pine trees.
*Continuous palmettos, shrubs, or
sawgrass more than 3 feet tall.
*Vines and small-to-medium trees or
palms beneath tall pine trees.
*Impenetrable shrubs or young pines.
*No clear view into the undeveloped
area because of dense growth.
Remember, homeowners must become
partners in fire protection.


For a modest charge,
each package includes:
*A print announcement in the
newspaper of your choice.

Area track teams



compete in state meets


Pahokee, Moore Haven 4 x
100 teams, Glades
Central girls 4 x 400,
Anthony, Thornton win
silver

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
WINTER PARK A few area teams came
tantalizingly close to winning gold medals in
last weekend's state track championships.
Merill Noel, a member of Pahokee's 4 x
100 relay team, knows that feeling.
In Pahokee's only appearance at the
Class 2A state championships, held on May
2, Noel simply tipped his hat to Miami-Mon-
signor Pace, who won state gold in the 4 x
100.
Monsignor Pace, who easily won the
Class 2A boys team title (82 points), held
off Pahokee for the 4 x 100 win (Monsignor
Pace 40.54, Pahokee 41.75).
"Miami Pace ran the fastest 4 x 100 time I
ever seen," Noel said.
"You can't stop speed and Pace had it.
"That's all it is, but next year, we should
pull it off and win state in the 4 x 100."
Pahokee received all eight of their team
points in the state meet, winning sliver med-
als.
The 4 x 100 relay team consisted of Noel,
De'Joshua Johnson, Nu'Kesse Richardson
and Latwan Rutledge.
Glades Central's 4 x 100 team [Tavares
Crawford, Charles Dowers, Willie Johnson,
Rantavious Wooten and came in fifth, with
a time of 42.67, which earned them medals
as well.
Glades Central's Rupert Bryan placed
fifth in the discus (159-01) and his team-
mate, Jim Knowles, placed seventh in the
shot put (45-6 1/2).
Willie Johnson (Glades Central) came in
sixth in the long jump (22-6 1/2).
Patrick Billings (Glades Central) finished
12th overall in the boys 800 meter run
(2:00.83), failing to earn a medal in his best
event.
Nonetheless, it was Billings' personal
best time this season.
Rantavious Wooten (Glades Central)
finished seventh in the 200 (22.53), well be-
hind the top two (Monsignor Pace's Derrick
Hopkins 21.39 and Suncoast's Tony Mc-
Quay- 21.79).
The Glades Central boys team finished in
a tie for 15th place with 14 points overall.
The girls from Glades Central did much
better, with Vanessa Anthony capturing two
sliver medals in the 100 and 300 meter hur-
dles, respectively.
Anthony, who was last year's state cham-
pion in the 300 hurdles, was beat out by Ena
Johnson of Florida High for the gold medal.
Johnson's time was 43.76, while Anthony
was next with 44.17 the same time John-
son recorded at the preliminaries.
In the 100 hurdles, Anthony was edged


out by Raines sophomore Ariel Stockton .
Stockton finished the race in 15.03 sec-
onds, while Anthony was right behind at
15.09 seconds.
Glades Central's 4 x 400 team [Anthony,
Martha Jaimes, Hentoya Parker and Erica
Wint] finished second overall (3:58.82), be-
hind state champion Raines (3:49.73).
As a team, Glades Central came in eighth
place (24 points), well behind the Class 2A
girls state titlist in Raines (84 points).

Class 1A state meet
Glades Day's Joshua Thornton barely
missed out on becoming a state champion
in the 400.
He was bested by West Gadsden's Bran-
don Thomas for the gold medal (Thomas -
49.05, Thornton 49.56).
"I was so close to winning this," Thorn-
ton said.
"It just broke my heart, but I did the best
I could," he continued.
Glades Day's 4 x 100 relay team failed to
qualify for the final, but Moore Haven's 4 x
100 [Keivon Bell, Elazarus Blackmon, Xavier
Fagan and Josh Patterson] finished second
overall in the May 1 Class IA state champi-
onships (43.68).
Glades Day's 4 x 100 team consisted of
Davonte Allen, Amir Pollock, Eaton Spence
and Kelvin Taylor.
Amir Pollock (Glades Day) finished fourth
overall in the 100 (11.62 seconds).
Uriah Johnson (Glades Day) paced eighth
overall in the 300 meter hurdles (43.82).
Ryan Soriano, Johnson's teammate,
failed to qualify for the 300 hurdles final, fin-
ishing 10th in the prelims.
As for the Moore Haven Terriers, Keivon
Bell finished fourth overall in the 200 (22.84),
while his teammate, Elazarus Blackmon,
failed to qualify for the 200 final, finishing
10th in the prelims.
The Moore Haven boys team finished
seventh place overall in the Class 1A state
meet (22 points), with Glades Day's boys
team ending up tied for 15th (14 points).
No one from Clewiston qualified for the
Class 2A state meet, while no girls from
Glades Day made the Class 1A state meet.
No girl from Pahokee qualified to com-
pete at the Class 2A state meet, while no girl
from Moore Haven scored any points at the
Class IA state meet this year.

Leadership Glades presents gift to new Glades hospital


The 2009 class of Leadership Glades, a
program that prepares future leaders in the
western portions of Palm Beach County,
made an investment in the future of health-
care in its community. The class presented
a donation to Glades Healthcare Foundation
to benefit the capital campaign for Lakeside
Medical Center. Due to open in October, it
will replace Glades General Hospital and will
be the only public hospital in Palm Beach
County.
The $2,400 Leadership Glades gift will be
applied to a $1.5 million challenge grant that
The Kresge Foundation awarded the founda-
tion to complete the hospital's capital cam-
paign. More than $65.4 million has already
been committed to the $73 million funding
goal to date.
Leadership Glades offers students a series
of in-depth seminars on topics ranging from
health and the environment, to the arts and
the future of the Glades. Brenda Bunting, a
spokesperson for the program, said the new
hospital ties in with the program's mission
to improve the lives of people living in the
Glades.
Reflecting on the gift presentation, Rob-
ert Champion, Director of Food Services at
Glades General Hospital said, "As the class
leader, I am proud of my class members'
participation in service to the Glades and all
their efforts to raise funds for the new Lake-
side Medical Center."
Dolly Hand, a long-time Glades resident
and Glades Healthcare Foundation board


member, was on hand to receive the dona-
tion and thanked Leadership Glades. "I am
touched by your generous gift to the new
hospital. But I am even more grateful for the
moral support each of you is expressing for
the new hospital through this gift. This is tru-
ly a testament to the community's support
of our new hospital."
Lakeside Medical Center will serve 40,000
residents in the communities surrounding
Lake Okeechobee. The new regional hos-
pital will provide enhanced healthcare for
a community with complex health condi-
tions, including high rates of diabetes and
cardiopulmonary disorders. "Providing a lo-
cal delivery system for the country's western
communities is crucial," said David Good-
lett, board chairman of Glades Healthcare
Foundation. "We are grateful to Leadership
Glades' support and hope that all members
of Palm Beach County will follow its lead
and make an investment in the future of our
only public hospital."
Donations in support of Lakeside Medi-
cal Center and The Kresge Foundation's
challenge grant can be mailed to Glades
Healthcare Foundation, 1016 North Dixie
Highway, West Palm Beach, FL 33401. To

Mother's Day An inadequate
tribute
By The Reverend Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
One church where I served celebrated
Mother's Day and Father's Day with a break-
fast. The men were supposed to cook on
Mother's Day and the women on Father's
Day. What usually happened was that the
women did the preparation and cooking on
both occasions! Mothers are like that: mak-
ing sure things happen even if it means extra
work for a party, or special occasion for chil-
dren with their clubs.
Mothers know the importance of tradi-
tions to make a family what it should be; the
value of a celebration to give a place in the
home to all who live there, the ways of ex-
pressing love with a special cake on a special
occasion. They also work to keep the home
even when conditions work against them
or help is not forthcoming. There is some-
thing about the importance of home and
stability in the family that they have come to
embody; seeking to provide even under the
most difficult circumstances.
The Lord came into this world by shar-
ing an earthly home. He would have an
earthly mother to deliver Him, to search for
Him when He was separated from His fam-
ily, to gently chide Him at a wedding feast
when there was no wine at the celebration,
to stand with Him and finally to weep with
Him at the end of His earthly life. He could
have come in any way He chose but elected
to share an earthly home from His begin-
ning with the one who makes home all it
can ever be.
Nurturing, protecting, sustaining, teach-
ing the lessons of socialization, and showing
faith-hope-love; Jesus would experience all
of these things with Mary and the family she
was to give to husband and children. God
sets before us this miracle worker when we
take time out and see her in our own lives;
those who have been "Mother" to us and
those who provide us with life from day
one. Jesus chose to hallow His coming to
us through a human mother so should we
hallow she who gives us life and then nur-
tures us from dependence to maturity and
independence in a few short years. Shaping,
prodding, comforting, providing, protecting,
teaching the lessons needed to cope with
the world outside, being physician, coun-
selor, chef, housekeeper, social director; the
roles and requirements are more than we
can imagine. We take out a day to celebrate
them; at least those things that we can re-
call. I prefer to think of Mother as one who
not only bears God's image but who shares
in His work beyond my imagination or ca-
pacity to fully understand; and always being
thankful for that human embodiment of His
presence among us. Thank you Mother's -
God bless you in your witness, accept our
humble and inadequate appreciation for
who you are and what you do.

In memory of Brian
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
We preachers always hope that God has
given us the right words, and that we are in-
struments through which God speaks.


When Pastor Brian Hamrick of First Bap-
tist Church of Clewiston became sick, the
pastors of our community lifted him up in
prayer. When things became more serious
and the church called a prayer vigil to bathe
Brian in prayer, a number of us were there.
During that time of prayer, God spoke to me
and I was called to share blessings for the
church for the way they had pulled together
in the midst of their "downed" shepherd and
to encourage them as a church to continue
to do so. I also got a very clear message that
Brian was going to be okay. I felt led to share
that message as well.
Brian seemed to get better, then com-
plications set in. On April 24, he died. It hit
me hard. He was a young 31 years and four
months old. He had a wife and two sons
ages 1 and 3. How could this happen? The
message I had received seemed so clear. I
once again turned to God this time with
questions.
God came back to me, "Brian is okay.
What about you?" I realized that the mes-
sage I had received was true. I was looking
for Brian to be healed. What Brian got was
the ultimate healing.
For those of us with faith, death is not the
end, but a "going home" to be with God.
Brian's earthly body may have perished, but
his heavenly body lives on for eternity. Brian
is more than okay.
But what about us? What if you were
to die today, or your spouse, or your child?
Would you be okay? Would they? How is
your soul? How is theirs? No one knows
what tomorrow holds, but we know who
holds tomorrow. It would do us good to
make sure of our connection with Him who
holds our tomorrows so that when the roll is
called up yonder, we'll be there.
One of Brian's favorite verses was Phi-
lippians 1:21, "For me, to live is Christ and
to die is gain." Brian's service was a living
testimony to this. We did not experience a
funeral, but a celebration of his life and love
for his God. Vaya con Dios, my brother. May
we also claim blessed assurance, Jesus is
mine.

"For the love of Mother"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Mother's Day has come to be one of the
most appealing and impressive days in the
life of the American people. On this day, peo-
ple from the President in the White House to
the humblest tenant in his cabin, pause to
pay tribute to the best-loved person in the
world Mother. The most beautiful sight in
all the world is the picture of a Mother with
her baby in arms. It is not any wonder that
artists, painters, sculptors, poets and orators
have summoned their resources to give a
worthy portrait of Motherhood. Motherhood
- the highest crown of womanhood.
How many times have you wanted to hug
your Mother and tell her "Thank You" for all
she has done for you? For Anna Jarvis in
1908 this desire was so great that she helped
create a whole day for Mom-thanking. Anna,
whose Mother was an early advocate of a
day for Mothers, carried on to completion
the effort to establish an annual Mother's
Day. She planned and arranged for a Church
Service on May 10, 1914. President Wilson
issued a proclamation declaring the second


Sunday in May to be observed as Mother's
Day throughout America.
And the Carnation? Anna also inniated
the custom of wearing Carnations in order
that Mothers might be further honored...
and because it was her Mother's favorite
flower.
Several years back I was ministering over
at Lakeport and we had come there from
New Mexico. Our son, Steve, who remained
in New Mexico called his Mother, my wife,
Pattie, and sang a song that he had just writ-
ten to his Mother. Here are the words:
"For all the love you gave to me, when
I was young and sat upon your knee; You
held me in your arms and rocked me into
sleep. And I never said, "Thank you." And
for all the times when I fell down, you were
always there to wipe away my frown, you
made me laugh whenever I was down. And
I never said, "Thank you." 0 "Thank you,"


Mom, this is me, singin' for you, and if none
of my dreams in life come true, there's just
one thing I really wanna do, I wanna say,
"Thank you, 0 "Thank you" for loving me.
And for the times when I was sick in bed,
you were always there to put a cold clothe
upon my head. You lost your sleep, and all
in my stead. And I never said, "Thank you."
And for the nights you read me to sleep,
dreaming' 'bout Jack-Be-Nimble and Little
Bo Peep, talking' 'bout the stars and the
ocean deep. And I never said "Thank you,"
O "Thank you."
Mom, this is me, singin' for you, and if
none of my dreams in life come true, there's
just one thing I really wanna do, I wanna
say, "Thank you," 0 "Thank you." For lovin'
me... (Thanks mom!)
This song will be sung as a part of Moth-
er's Day Celebration this Sunday at 1 la.m.
at First Christian Church.

Persons at home who need constant
oxygen, are bedridden, or require total
care by a caregiver, are among those who
already should have registered with Hen-
dry County officials for the Persons with
Special Needs evacuation center. It may be
too late to call for help when the hurricane
is bearing down on us or there is some oth-
er natural disaster. We must identify a safe
location with generated electrical ability in
advance, and make appropriate transpor-
tation arrangements.
Hendry County Emergency Manage-
ment actively conducts the "Persons with
Special Needs" Committee meetings
throughout the year. This committee is
made up from all the health care business-
es and agencies in Hendry County. The
PSN Committee encourages residents who
have special medical needs to pre-register
with the County, so in the event of a hur-
ricane or other catastrophe, arrangements
for sheltering and transportation can be
carried out quickly.
Persons with Special Needs or their care-
givers should call the following agency as
soon as possible to request Hendry Coun-


ty's PSN registration form. You can obtain
this form by either going to our website at
hendryfla.net or calling our office.
Hendry County Emergency Manage-
ment 863-612-4700 or 863-983-1594.
In addition to making certain they are
pre-registered, persons with special needs
and their caregivers need to know what
they can expect at the PSN evacuation cen-
ter.
*A caregiver MUST accompany the PSN
client.
Each individual must supply their own
non perishable food, water, bedding, med-
icines, and medical equipment necessary
for the client.
*NO PETS are allowed at the PSN evac-
uation center with the exception of service
dogs (other arrangements need to be made
for pets of PSN clients)
The PSN evacuation center is a safe
building ONLY, with emergency electrical
power, not a medical care center. It is al-
ways advisable to leave the area or arrange
to stay with friends or family if that is possi-
ble. Evacuation centers should be thought
of as a last resort!

First Bank Burns Rubber at Sugar Festival Bed Race


By Glenda Wilson
For the third consecutive year, the Hendry
Regional Medical Center Foundation held its
Hospital Bed Race Fundraiser at the annual
Sugar Festival. This year, eight teams, con-
sisting of five members, joined the bed race
and donated $50 per team to the hospital
foundation.
On-lookers gathered in curiosity and an-
ticipation, as the equipment was being set up
for the great race. Rules of the race remained
the same: one person rode on the bed while


four others (wearing swim flippers on their
feet) ran and pushed the individual to a
designated half-way point. Then, everyone
stopped, hoola-hooped three times, drank a
cup of water with no hands, and returned to
the starting point.
The following teams participated:
*First Bank
*Clewiston High School Softball Team
(Undergraduates)
*Sunrise Restaurant
*Clewiston High School SADD


*Clewiston High School HOSA
*The Berner Family
*Hendry Regional Medical Center
*Clewiston High School Softball Team
(Seniors)
Wheels turned and rubber smoked like
the Daytona Speedway, as the First Bank
crew steered their bed-mobile to the finish
line in a blazing 38 seconds. In the final fi-
nale, the Berner Family's team was running
wheel-to-wheel, when Marshall Berner's
flipper broke, throwing them into second


place.
Teams were judged by their creative cos-
tumes, and although all wore interesting
attire, judges ruled that Hendry Regional
Medical Center's theme, "HRMC Has No
Bed Bugs" topped them all. Dressed like
bugs (with an exterminator in the middle),
this eye-catching group attracted the atten-
tion of the crowd.
The Hendry Regional Medical Center
Foundation thanks all those who donated
and participated.

Mental Health Services respond to cuts in funding


Facilities to close an
additional day per week;
staff sees hours reduced

HENDRY/GLADES -- The Hendry Glades
Mental Health Clinic today announced its
plan to deal with projected reductions in
state funding beginning June 1 by temporar-
ily reducing its days of operations from five
days a week to four, and reducing the num-
ber of paid hours in the work week to 36
initially and possibly as little as 30 later, as
additional reductions are made known.
Craig Cudworth, president of the clinic's
board of directors, confirmed that the clinic
was just notified of a probable 3.75 percent
reduction in state funding for the remaining
quarter of this fiscal year and a projected re-
duction in next year's state revenues by as
much as $100,000 or about 10 percent of the
current state funding for local mental health
and addiction counseling services.
"Given the severity of these cuts on top
of other recent state reductions targeted as
Medicaid sponsored services, Children's
Mental Health services and Temporary Assis-
tance for Needy Families (TANF), the board
and our executive, Mr. Hosick, have agreed


to plant to make the necessary budget re-
ductions while maintaining the viability of
existing programs and avoiding staff layoffs
or closing any office sites," Mr. Cudworth re-
marked.
Joseph Hosick, HGMHC executive direc-
tor, elaborated that the plan to reduce the
number of weekly work days was deemed
necessary to avoid lay-offs, but flexible
enough to permit across the board budget
reductions in both direct and support servic-
es, as well as fixed overhead expenses such
as utilities.
The plan entails reducing total weekly
staff hours to 36 beginning June 1 and then
34, 32 or 30 depending on the severity of the
state's reductions beginning. Staff chose to
close on Fridays to maximize the savings for
expenses related to utilities and travel even
if they must work longer hours on the four
days they remain open.
"The work schedules and the projected
work load for our two part-time psychiatrists
will remain essentially the same under this
plan," Mr. Hosick emphasized. "However,
the staff scheduled to be on-call to handle
emergencies and assist the police, hospital
and others with involuntary commitments
and other emergencies will have to add Fri-


days to the weekend on-call schedule until
the economy improves and we can all re-
turn to a normal five-day work week."
The annual operating budget for the
Hendry-Glades Mental Health Clinic has de-
creased steadily from a high of $2.2 million
supporting 44 funded positions during the
peak of the hurricane damage three years
ago, to a current budget of $1.7 million and
25 FTE (full-time equivalent) positions.
The clinic's budget for next fiscal year is
likely to drop again to about $1.6 million and
22 FTE when these new projected cuts go
into effect.
The current primary funding sources for
the clinic are state DCF contract funds for
$970,000, Medicaid for $300,000, Hendry
County matching funds of $157,500, Glades
County matching funds of $39,964, and cli-
ent fees.
However, the number of persons served
annually has remained constant at about
1,700 for the past seven years. The clinic
has been in continuous operation since its
incorporation in 1974 and is designated by
the state as the community mental health
authority for the Hendry and Glades county
area.
The clinic's mission is to assist mentally


ill and addicted persons with treatment and
related community support services.
HGMHC devotes all of its resources to
outpatient, community support, and court/
jail diversion activities. As a result, local uti-
lization of the more expensive and restric-
tive inpatient services (located in Ft. Myers
and Belle Glade) and even the local jails by
mentally ill persons, is perhaps the lowest in
the state based on per capital measurements
monitored by the University of South Flori-
da, Lois de la Parte Mental Health Institute
(2007 report).
HGMHC is currently advocating for the
establishment of a local mental health court
to further reduce the number of days men-
tally ill persons spend in local jails for misde-
meanor violations.
Mr. Hosick said, "Jail should never replace
treatment for persons who, due to the very
nature of their illness or disability, may not
always obey society's rules. It is our job as
a mental health clinic and behavioral health
specialists to provide treatment and support
for mentally impaired persons living in their
chosen community and help them recover
from their disability without isolating them
or restricting their enjoyment of the com-
munity."

Celebrating Older Americans Month:


Hope Offers Opportunities to Age Gracefully


Samira K. Beckwith, President and CEO
Hope Hospice and Community Services
Take a moment to close your eyes and
imagine blowing out the candles on your
birthday cake at 107 years old. Or appear-
ing on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno to
play the accordion just before your 90th
birthday.
At Hope Hospice, we've had the privilege
of sharing these recent celebrations with
Ann Brovich, an extraordinary Centenarian,
and Viola Whitt, a Hope volunteer and tal-
ented musician.
Like many older Americans today, Ann
and Vi are continuing to enjoy their lives,
and their stories reflect the essence of our
work at Hope: to ensure that those in our
care are living life as fully as possible.
By Presidential declaration, May is Older
Americans Month, a time for all of us to cel-
ebrate the accomplishments and contribu-
tions of seniors while focusing on their cur-
rent and future needs. As a country, we've
witnessed together the importance of plan-
ning for the future; our health care systems
are often underfunded and overburdened,
while our citizens are enjoying longer lives.
At Hope, we strive to enhance the quality
of life through innovative and special pro-
grams, employing our skills and experiences
gained over more than 30 years of providing
hospice care.
Our continuum of services and programs
assists Older Americans even before they
reach the end of life, with coordinated care


that addresses the social and practical needs
of those who suffer from the chronic illness-
es and frailty that often accompany the ag-
ing process. These services include:
*Delivery of medical services, supplies
and prescriptions
In-home care
*Care management
*Transportation
*Wellness activities and therapies
*Symptom management
*Support counseling and problem-solv-
ing for seniors and their families
Meals
Many of these seniors also enjoy a day
filled with companionship and activities at
the Hope Health Center in Fort Myers, in-
cluding the support of nurses, doctors and
therapists.
This broad range of coordinated, profes-
sional services often has the benefit of en-
abling Older Americans to continue living
safely and comfortably at home, with as
much independence as possible.
In the past year alone, Hope has had the
privilege of touching the lives of more than
6,000 individuals in our care.
Our commitment to each person is to
listen attentively, to hear their expectations
and unique needs, and to tailor a compre-
hensive plan of care that will enhance and
enrich their quality of life.
We recognize that our work touches
not only the individual, but also their family
members and everyone they love, bringing


peace of mind and often respite to the
family and caregivers.
Please join us in observing Older Ameri-
cans Month by celebrating the many gifts
this generation offers, and supporting
Hope's mission to provide exceptional care
and support to every individual as they fulfill
life's journey ... all the way to 107 candles.

State of Florida Emergency Response Team: Swine Flu


Department of Health and State Teams
remain vigilant in unified efforts to educate
and inform Floridians about HIN1 swine flu.
If you are ill, plan to stay home from work or
school to avoid infecting others.
Current Situation
*Florida has five confirmed cases in the
following counties: two in Lee, one in Bro-
ward, one in Orange, and one in Pinellas.
*Alachua, Lee, Indian River, Okeecho-
bee, Palm Beach, Seminole, and Clay have
one probable case each. Miami Dade and
Broward each have three probable cases.
Hillsborough County has six probable cas-
es.
State Actions
On Friday, May 1, Governor Charlie Crist
directed State Surgeon General Dr. Ana
Viamonte Ros to declare a public health
emergency that will allow the State Sur-
geon General to take any action necessary
to protect the public health (Florida Statutes,
381.00315).
*The Florida Flu Information Line, a toll
free information service, has been estab-
lished to address an increasing number of
calls from the public requesting Swine Flu


information. The number is 800-342-3557.
Hours of operation are 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
(EDT). An automated service is available
after hours.
On Monday the line received 1,151 with
460 calls seeking information on flu symp-
toms. 216 calls for general information, 104
calls regarding confirmed cases, and 80 calls
received regarding school closures.
*Statewide conference calls continue.
County emergency management and health
department officials will give a briefing on
the current situation, state actions and pro-
vide a forum to pose questions to Depart-
ment of Health and Emergency Manage-
ment senior officials.
*The State Emergency Response Team
(SERT) remains at a level 2 activation (par-
tial). The team is monitoring the situation
and is coordinating with the Swine Flu Inci-
dent Command team.
*Antiviral medication has been distribut-
ed statewide. Florida has over one half mil-
lion individual courses.
*The Florida Department of Education is
now posting school closures at: http://www.
fldoe.org/closed-schools.asp


Federal and International Actions
*The Centers for Disease Control and
Prevention has reported 276 confirmed cas-
es of swine flu (H1NI) in the United States,
with one death.
*The World Health Organization alert
level remains at Phase 5. The declaration
of a Phase 5 is a strong signal that the pan-
demic is imminent and that the time to final-
ize the organization, communication, and
implementation of the planned mitigation
measures is short.
Public Actions recommendations from
the Florida Department of Health
*Wash hands frequently to lessen the
spread of respiratory illness.
*People with respiratory illness should
stay home from work or school to avoid
spreading infections, including influenza, to
others in the community.
*Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or otherwise appear ill.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
*People experiencing cough, fever and
fatigue, possibly along with diarrhea and
vomiting, should contact their physician.


Other Notes
The symptoms of swine flu in people are
similar to the symptoms of regular human flu
and include fever, cough, sore throat, body
aches, headache, chills and fatigue. Some
people have reported diarrhea and vomiting
associated with swine flu. Like seasonal flu,
swine flu may cause a worsening of underly
ing chronic medical conditions.
*Swine influenza viruses are not trans-
mitted by food and a person cannot get
swine influenza from eating pork products.
The infections appear to spread from person
to person.
The Florida Department of Health has
created a webpage with information at
www.doh.state.fl.us, and the CDC has a web
page at www.cdc.gov/swineflu
Be smart, be safe, be a survivor! Go to
www.FloridaDisaster.org today to create a
personal or family disaster plan. All students,
teachers and parents can find educational in-
formation and free downloadable materials
at: www.KidsGetAPlan.com.
For the latest daily situation and flash
reports go to: www.YouTube.com/Florida-
SERT.


* WATER YOUR LAWN ONLY WHEN IT NEEDS IT.
STEP ON THE GRASS. IF IT SPRINGS BACK,
WHEN YOU LIFT YOUR FOOT, IT DOESN'T NEED WATER.

Florida Recognizes May as Clean Air Month


State encourages citizens to
help protect air quality

TALLAHASSEE Recognizing that clean
air is vital to Florida's health, environment
and economy, Governor Charlie Crist has
proclaimed May 2009 as Clean Air Month.
To celebrate this designation, the Florida
Department of Environmental Protection
(DEP) and the Florida Department of Trans-
portation (FDOT) are encouraging Florida's
residents, businesses and visitors to adopt
environmentally friendly practices to help
protect Florida's air quality.
"Recognizing May as Clean Air Month re-
inforces the state's commitment to meeting
and exceeding air quality standards," said
DEP Secretary Michael W. Sole.
"By monitoring air quality, promoting pol-
lution prevention, administering pollution
controls, and coordinating with local, state
and federal clean air programs, we strive to
ensure that Florida's air quality is among the
cleanest in the nation."
According to the U. S. Environmental Pro-
tection Agency, the average adult breathes
more than 3,000 gallons of air every day.
Children, who breathe more air per pound
of body weight, are even more susceptible
to air pollution.
Keeping these statistics in mind, there are
many steps Floridians can take to prevent air
pollution and protect human health, as well


as the environment.
These steps include:
*Drive less- use public transportation,
carpool or ride a bike.
*Use energy efficient products.
*Use reel or electric lawn mowers.
*Compost rather than burning waste
materials.
*Use green cleaners.
*Maintain heating and air conditioning
units.
*Avoid using oil-based paints, solvents or
varnishes which contribute to ground level
ozone.
*Recycle.
*Plant native trees and shrubs.
*Spread the word.
Another way to help protect air quality
is to plan ahead with 511 before hitting the
road. FDOT offers a free 511 Travel Informa-
tion System that provides drivers up-to-the-
minute roadway information on all Florida
interstate highways and major metropolitan
roadways.
Utilizing the 511 system helps drivers
avoid congested roadways and reduces ve-
hicle emissions by minimizing traffic idling.
Callers can also use 511 to connect to public
transit agencies.
The free resource is available from a lan-
dline or cell phone, by dialing 511, or on the
Web at www.FL511 .com.
In the last decade, Florida has achieved
large reductions in emissions of soot, sulfur


dioxide and smog-contributing nitrogen ox-
ide through a combination of enforcement,
conversion to cleaner fuel and implement
tion of federal requirements, such as the fed
eral Clean Air Interstate Rule.
In December, Florida's Idle Reduction
Rule went into effect, placing an idling limit
of five minutes on heavy-duty diesel vehicles
to reduce greenhouse gas and other poten-
tially hazardous emissions.
DEP's Division of Air Resource Manage-
ment also recently issued permits for pollu-
tion controls at three coal fired power plant
facilities who have committed to reducing
emissions Gulf Power Crist, Gulf Power
Smith and Progress Energy's Crystal River
Units four and five.
These permits will lead to significant
reductions in fine particle pollution and
ground-level ozone.
These actions, plus the Governor's
2007 Executive Orders and the energy bill
(HB7135) passed during the 2008 Legisla-
tive Session, have helped propel Florida as a
leader in environmental protection.
A number of other initiatives have also
been set in motion to further that commit-
ment, including a cap-and-trade regulatory
program to reduce greenhouse gas emis-
sions, a renewable fuel standard and re-
newable portfolio standard that gives added
weight to wind and solar energy, plus in-
creased energy efficiency and conservation
requirements.


In addition to implementing improved
building codes to increase the energy per-
formance of newly constructed buildings.
DEP's Division of Air Resource Manage-
ment is tasked with protecting, conserving
and restoring Florida's air, with the primary
goal of protecting the health of its residents.
Air pollution comes from many sources
including factories, power plants, dry clean-
ers and motor vehicles.
The division implements the federal
Clean Air Act and appropriate statutes to
protect Floridians.
The division also monitors the state's air
pollution control programs and coordinates
Florida's work with the efforts of other local,
state and federal air quality programs.

Emergency Assistance for Livestock program


Assistance extended to
Honey Bees, and Farm-
Raised Fish Program

Clewiston, Fl Florida Hendry/Glades/
Collier Counties, Joy Llossas, County Execu-
tive Director for USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA), reminded farmers and ranchers that
the 2008 Farm Bill created five new disaster
programs, one of which is the Emergency
Assistance for Livestock, Honey Bees, and
Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP).
ELAP provides emergency relief to pro-
ducers of livestock, honey bees, and farm-
raised fish to aid in the reduction of losses
because of disease, adverse weather, or


other conditions, such as blizzards and wild-
fires, as determined by the Secretary, during
the calendar year, that are not covered by
the Supplemental Revenue Assistance Pay-
ments Program (SURE), Livestock Indem-
nity Program (LIP), and Livestock Forage
Disaster Program (LFP).
"Livestock, honey bee, and farm-raised
fish producers who have incurred 2008 and/
or 2009 calendar year losses not covered
by SURE, LIP, and LFP are advised to begin
compiling their loss documentation, if inter-
ested in ELAP," said Ms. Llossas.
"Livestock, honeybee, or farm-raised fish
producers must provide FSA with verifiable
documentation for all losses for which com-
pensation is wanted."


Producers shall be advised that loss doc-
umentation will not be accepted by County
Offices until their ELAP applications are
filed.
All types of losses for which livestock,
honey bee, and farm-raised fish producers
may be compensated for under ELAP will
not be known until the regulations for ELAP
are
published in the Federal Register.
Verifiable documentation must include
verifiable documentation for purchased feed
and or harvested feed documentation.
Honey bee producers who incur physical
losses of honey bees and honey bee hives
because of colony collapse disorder must
provide documentation and/or a certification


that the loss of honey bees was because of
colony collapse disorder from one or more
of the following:
Registered entomologist,
Cooperative Extension specialist, and
*Land Grant University.
Farm-raised fish producers who incur
physical losses of farm-raised fish because
of adverse weather or other conditions must
provide documentation of beginning inven-
tory on the beginning date of the adverse
weather event and the ending inventory.

available at FSA County Offices or by visiting

Florida Crystals welcomes federal dollars


Company is encouraged
by funding for construction
of Everglades Restoration
projects

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -April 30, 2009
- Florida Crystals Corporation welcomes
the much-needed $96 million from the Fed-
eral Government announced this week that


will be used for immediate construction of
Everglades restoration projects.
"We are encouraged to see the Federal
Government living up to its commitment to
Everglades restoration," said Gaston Can-
tens, Vice President of Florida Crystals.
"And, more importantly, with so many
restoration projects on hold, we are opti-
mistic the money will go to the construction
and implementation of planned projects
that will not only restore the Everglades but
create critical jobs in these tough economic


times."
Instead of simply buying more land, the
federal contribution will pay for the con-
struction of two CERP projects a reservoir
next to the Loxahatchee National Wildlife
Refuge and for restoration of Picayune
Strand, an 85-square-mile area that was
over-drained in the early 1960s as part of a
failed housing development.
Florida Crystals is encouraged to see
some restoration projects may get back on
track.


The company is hopeful future dollars
will be put toward projects that will address
the source of pollution in the watersheds
north of Lake Okeechobee, as present
phosphorus loading to the lake is nearly
five times higher than the limit that must be
met by 2015.
In order to solve Florida's water issues
and achieve effective restoration, we must
address the entire water system Lake
Okeechobee, the estuaries and the Ever-
glades.

Hendry County studies recycling possibility


Property appraiser's office
argues against further
budget cuts to department

By Patty Brant
IN[ Florida
Countywide recycling may be in the near
future. At its April 28 meeting, the Board of
County Commissioners asked County Attor-
ney Mark Lapp to revisit the solid waste fran-
chise ordinance, which has not been looked
at in 29 years.
The Solid Waste Advisory Committee
is recommending pick up changes includ-
ing one day a week for household waste,
one day for recycling and one day for yard
waste.
Commissioner Tris Chapman asked staff
to check on how recycling projects are do-
ing in Port LaBelle, Felda and Riverbend and
asked for feedback from constituents on the
issue.
County Administrator Judi Kennington-
Korf said Port LaBelle had an "overwhelm-
ing" response from the beginning and has
one of the highest responses in the state.
She added that the county first educated
the community before beginning the proj-
ect. She said Riverbend's project has also
been successful.
The City of LaBelle is also about to launch
a recycling program. Ms. Kennington-Korf


suggested Terri Cross attend the next meet-
ing to provide more information.
Commission Chair Janet Taylor remind-
ed the board that each area of the county
is distinct and one type of program may not
fit all.
Commissioner Darrell Harris noted that
the schools have cut their garbage pick
up costs in half through recycling and one
school is about to experiment with a com-
pactor.

Budget issues
Property Appraiser Phill Pelletier ap-
peared before the county commissioners at
their April 28 meeting, to address a request
that he reduce his budget by $110,000.
Mr. Pelletier pointed out that the property
appraiser's original $1,367,601 budget has
already been reduced to $1,193,534 for 2008-
09 and has had to absorb additional costs.
He said possible future reductions might
be possible by working with SFWMD for
state mandated aerial photographs.
He also said a new computer system will
be required to keep up with legislative man-
dates.
Commissioner Chapman explained that
the budget review process is very common
adding that, because of the dramatic eco-
nomic transition in the last five years, all de-
partments must justify their budgets.
He also said that looking back over previ-
ous budget years can be very instructive.


Commissioner Chapman then stated un-
equivocally, "I will not be voting for any raise
in millage."
Mr. Pelletier also pointed out his depart-
ment's need for vehicles for staff to travel
throughout the county.
As revenue seekers, he said employees
need to be out in the field and making them
use their personal vehicles is a hardship.
He felt that possibly some county vehicles
could be shared between departments.
He noted that property employees in
the field found a packing house not on the
tax roles and said his employees could find
more such situations, resulting in additional
tax revenue for the county, if they had access
to county vehicles.
Commissioner Karson Turner said he
wants to see an inventory of the current
fleet.
Commissioner Kevin McCarthy thanked
Mr. Pelletier for the detailed budgetary in-
formation he has provided, adding that
it's more than the board has seen in some
time.

Pioneer issues
Pioneer Plantation resident Fred Bosley
requested that the commission approve no
more zoning changes in Pioneer Plantation
till the community comprehensive plan is
complete.
Members of the community, Homeown-
ers Association and County Planner Vince


Cautero are working on a plan to govern
future development in Pioneer.
Commissioner Turner has also been
working with the community on the proj-
ect.
Mr. Bosley sited a situation in which com-
mercial zoning for a property on Hendry
Isles Blvd. was approved last month for a
craft shop.
He said the next day the owner turned the
sign at the corner over and enscribed a num-
ber to call to rent the commercial property,
stating it had zoning for any type of business
the renter wanted.

Inland port
Commissioner McCarthy reported that
the Request for Qualifications for a proposed
inland port is due May 22.
Hendry County is one of several areas
hoping to land the inland port, which prom-
ises to be a huge economic boost.
The county is planning a meeting to dis-
cuss the project on May 19 at John Boy Au-
ditorium from 5-7:30 p.m.

In other business:
A curfew ordinance could come to a
vote at the May 26 commission meeting in
LaBelle.
The next regular commission meeting
will be Tuesday, May 12, at the Clewiston
City Hall. Meetings begin at 5 p.m.

Richmond
Continued From Page 1

He runs anywhere from 90 to 120 miles
each week, and looks the part. His body
is lean, the muscles on his arms and legs
toned from his running. When he runs, he
whips his hair into a ponytail, and lets it
hang down when he is at home -- and then
becomes that old familiar friend many in the
community have grown up with.
His run in Boston was a tough one. By
any means, a 26.2-mile run is not easy, but
given the hilly terrain and the fact that the
wind blew against the runners at 20-miles-
per-hour, finishing was an accomplishment
in and of itself.
Still, it came down to eight-and-a-half
minutes, he said.
Eight-and-a-half minutes.
That's all that separated Austin from an
Olympic-qualifying time.
Eight-and-half minutes.
His finishing time was "nowhere near the
trial standard," he lamented.
But this is only the beginning.
At the thought of running in a day a dis-
tance that many people don't drive in their
air-conditioned cars, one imagines the sheer
endurance that is necessary to complete a

"I searched Mr. Lyons' kitchen and locat-

CIT Applications
The City of Clewiston Recreation De-
partment is now accepting applications for
Counselor in Training (CIT) for this years'
Summer Camp. You can stop by the Youth


full marathon.
Austin dissects it passionately.
"The first ten miles goes by so quick," he
said. "Then, between miles 13 and 16, you
hit a wall. You feel like you're not in shape.
It's that feeling you get, your lungs burn,
your legs start to go dead."
And then there are the last few miles of
the run.
"They're the worst," Austin assured.
"You think you have injuries from the hips
down."
Austin doesn't have an army of trainers
to motivate him each morning when he
wakes up again to run. He runs alone. He
doesn't have the course charted out for him,
or someone to whisper encouragements
into his ear.
But he's never needed that.
After high school, Austin continued run-
ning simply for the sport. In three years, he
went from nothing to All American in col-
lege.
"If you just keep that up ..." he said, with
his sentence slowly fading to thought.
So at least for now, his thinking will be
more sharply focused, and only three things
matter now:
"My wife. My newborn. And running," he
said. "Everything else is white noise."

Officers seized the evidence and photo-
graphed all narcotics and paraphernalia be-
fore transporting Lyons to the county jail in
LaBelle.
He now faces charges of narcotics pos-
session and intercepting police radio info to
aid suspect during a crime.
Due to the apartments close proximity
to a church, the suspect faces an additional
count of possession of cocaine within 1,000
feet of a place of worship. According to of-
ficers, the Clewiston Congregation of Jeho-
va's Witnesses is a mere 270 feet from the
suspect's apartment.
