Mid-day accident on
S.R. 80 unexplained
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- An accident last
week on S.R. 80 claimed the life of
a Lehigh Acres man.
The accident happened at ap-
proximately 4 p.m. outside of
Clewiston, just a quarter-mile west
of Everhigh Acres Blvd.
One vehicle hit another head-on
on the busy road, with the driver of
the second vehicle unable to ma-
neuver out of harm's way.
Officials say the man who lost
his life in the accident was not
wearing a seat belt at the time.
Details regarding what caused the
crash are not certain, while inves-
tigators continue looking into the
incident.
According to Travis Parks, the
trooper assigned to the crash in-
vestigation, a 2006 Ford Mustang
driven by James Withrow, 46, of
Lehigh Acres, traveling west on
S.R. 80, crossed into the centerline
of the roadway, heading straight
into incoming traffic.
The event happened so quickly
that Dionicio Rodriguez, 51, of La
Belle, had little time to avoid the
collision and swerved to get out of
the path of the other car.

Letter to the editor

Youth Baseball
On behalf of the Clewiston Youth Base-
ball and Girls Softball board, I would like to
take the time to thank all of the people in-
volved in our program this season. We had a
great turnout, serving more than 350 kids in
our community again this year!
Parents, thank you so much for allowing
your children to participate in this sport. It
is an honor to teach them the fundamentals
of "America's Favorite Pass Time." We en-
joy being out there on the fields with these
kids, watching them learn and grow, be-
come a team player and most importantly,
enjoy themselves. Also, thank you so much
for helping us in the concession stand and
keeping score.
The board would also like to thank all of
our coaches. We appreciate all that these
fine people have done, from teaching t-ball
to run to first instead of third, to showing
the older kids how to pitch, steal bases and


slide. Each one of our coaches is an out-
standing and valuable person, and we hope
to see all of them return for another great
season next year!
Our sponsors this year have helped our
organization tremendously. Without the
financial backing from these sponsors,
Clewiston Youth Baseball would not be able
to pay for the Dixie League dues, insurance,
equipment, etc. to start the season.
Thank you to our umpires who took
the time to get certified through Dixie. The
knowledge you bring to the game is vital to
the players' development as well.
To all of ourwonderful players, thankyou
for being willing to learn baseball and soft-
ball, and getting out there on that field; giv-
ing it all you got! Way to go! Each and every
one of you is very talented and we are lucky
to have such great players in our league.
I would like to personally thank all of
our board members for their hard work
and dedication to our league, and the lovely


couple, who work for us in the concession
stand every night.
We appreciate everyone's help, and look
forward to meeting new people who are
willing to give up some of their time for the
youth in our community, like our special
parents, sponsor and other volunteers have
done so for many years. Everyone involved
with our program is truly an asset to us.
If anyone is interested in becoming a
board member for next season, please feel
free to contact a current board member for
more information.
I invite everyone in the community to
come out Monday thru Friday night to sup-
port our youth as they play baseball and
softball. The fields are located behind the
John Boy Auditorium.
Sincerely,
Heather Lowman
Clewiston Youth Baseball, Inc

Moore Haven Terriers running back Fred Hall looks to make a statement tomor-
row night against Sheridan Hills Christian.


Spring game is May 15 at
Sheridan Hills Christian

By Naji Tobias
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Jason Bond, the Ter-
rier's third-year head football coach, is in a
happy state right now.
He knows exactly what the team needs
to improve on from last year's 5-5 season
and is currently focused on fixing those ar-
eas of concerns.
"Our biggest area of improvement is go-
ing to be our tackling," Bond admitted.
With Moore Haven's spring game set for
tomorrow night at Sheridan Hills Christian,
Bond has had less than two weeks to work
with his new and returning players.
Spring practices began on Monday, May
4, but Bond is proud of what he sees in the
short time he's had with them.
"The kids have worked really hard," Bond
said. "We don't have a really deep group of
kids, but they're talented,"
For the spring game, the Terriers will be
led by junior-to-be Keonte White, who is
perhaps the team's fastest player.
As a wide receiver, defensive back and
backup quarterback last season, White will
be replacing outgoing senior Dalton Britt as
the starting quarterback.
Another standout for tomorrow's spring
game is expected to be that of senior-to-be
Fred Hall, who lead the team in rushing last
season with 183 carries for 1,195 yards and
10 touchdowns good for 119.5 yards per
game, according to Maxpreps.com.
"Fred's healthier and faster than last year,"
Bond said. "I expect him and the other kids
to give all they got."
Moore Haven runs a one-back formation,
which Bond says is designed for a balanced


offense, which the Terriers displayed much
of last year.
This year's top receivers will likely be
the trio of juniors-to-be Keivon Bell, a new
comer, and Cassius Hallback, along with
sophomore-to-be Terry Hallback.
Marshall Britt, the younger brother of Dal-
ton, will be this season's starting tight end.
"Marshal played offensive line last year,
but he has good hands and we'll see what
he could for us in his new position," Bond
said.
Here's a listing of the Moore Haven Ter-
riers roster:
Seniors: Lascelle Humphrey; Cale Rives;
Fred Hall
Juniors: Nick Watson; Keonte White;
Bersain Herrera; Jaime Juarez; Cassius
Hallback; Jermaine Augustine; Matt Lanier;
Hunter Ward; Jose Tito Ortiz; Keivon Bell
Sophomores: Jorge Perez; Marshall
Britt; Jodi Wooten; Terry Hallback; Manuel
Torres; Warner Ward; Tikeem Guyton; Ri-
cardo Garcia
Freshmen: Luis Rico; Kaleb Langdale;
Arliss Ford; Nathan Lee; Joshua Redd; Felipe
Morales; Akkua Hallback; Phoenix Pattison;
Eli Johnson; Vinton Lewis
Eighth graders: Josh Rich; Barrion Co-
hens; Darrion Cohens; Tom Perry; Jeremy
Grech; Thorn Barfield; Ty Johnson; Cody
Town; Quanshe Sandier; Michael Elrod;
Josh Rich
Coaching staff: Jason Bond (Head
Coach); Vincent Lewis (Defensive Coordina-
tor); Tim Jones; Chad Pio; Jim Shields; Brad
Garrett
"If we're going to win tomorrow, we
need to stay healthy and improve on our de-
fense," Bond said about the spring game.
Moore Haven's spring football game is
tomorrow night at 7 p.m. in Ft. Lauderdale.

U.S. Sugar Board approves amended two-step SFWMD Land Acquisition


Amended terms of
Acquisition protect rural
jobs and environment
Clewiston The Board of Directors of
the U.S. Sugar Corporation today approved
the amended contract terms for the South
Florida Water Management District's acqui-
sition of the Company's land in two afford-
able phases that enable the Company to
continue its operations.
"Our Board approved the revised acqui-
sition approach implementing Governor
Crist's bold vision for our property. While


the vision and goal remain unchanged, the
economy dictated this more affordable ap-
proach," said Robert Coker, Senior Vice
President, Public Affairs.
"We believe this historic acquisition will
still provide great benefits for the environ-
ment and a fair value for our Company,"
Coker said. "Our board approval brings us
one step closer to getting this done. The
next step is the review and approval of the
amended contract by the Governing Board
of the SFWMD next week."
Under the amended terms, the SFWMD
initially would acquire nearly 73,000 acres of
the Company's land for approximately $536
million with a 10-year option to acquire the


remaining 107,000 acres. U.S. Sugar would
continue to farm the property through a
7 year lease that may be extended under
certain circumstances. The SFWMD is in the
bond validation process in Florida Circuit
Court. The acquisition is scheduled to close
within 90 days of bond validation.
"This two-step approach provides a
greater degree of certainty for our busi-
nesses, for our employees and also for our
communities by keeping our farming and
processing operations viable for the foresee-
able future," said Robert Coker, senior vice
president, public affairs.
Coker said that under the amended
agreement, U.S. Sugar will lease back the


IRS reminds small tax-exempt organizations to file e-posteards


WASHINGTON-The Internal Revenue
Service today reminded many small tax-
exempt organizations to file their annual
electronic informational return with the IRS
by the May 15 deadline.
This is the second year of the new re-
quirement for tax-exempt organizations
whose gross annual receipts are normally
$25,000 or less to file Form 990-N also
known as e-Postcards. The process is fast
and easy.


The May 15, deadline applies to all small
organizations whose tax year ends on Dec.
31. Organizations whose tax year is differ-
ent from the calendar year must file the e-
Postcard by the 15th day of the fifth month
after the close of their tax year.
"The leadership of these small organiza-
tions tends to change rather frequently, so
it is important to remind everyone of this fil-
ing requirement," said Lois Lerner, director
of the IRS's Exempt Organizations division.


"It's important for an organization to file. If
it fails to do so for three consecutive years,
it will automatically lose its tax-exempt sta-
tus."
The e-Postcard is a simple, Internet-
based form that asks a few identifying ques-
tions about the organization. The-Postcard
must be filed online; there is not paper op-
tion.
More information and a link to the e-
Postcard can be found on IRS.gov.


cane land for $150 per gross acre for the ini-
tial seven-year period. The SFWMD can take
nearly 33,000 acres of citrus land with one
year's notice. The SFWMD also may take up
to 10,000 acres of cane land at any time in
the first ten years with a two-year notice for
approved and funded projects. Up to 3,000
acres of transition lands within or adjacent
to local municipalities will be made available
for development or community projects.
"Now it is up to the Governing Board to
approve the contract and move forward to
implement Governor Crist's vision. We are
optimistic that they will," Coker said.

Athletes honored at Glades Central


Cheerleader dies on day of
athletic awards ceremony

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE It felt like a mostly som-
ber affair at last Thursday's (May 7) an-
nual athletic awards at Glades Central High
School.
Held at the school's auditorium, there
were many winners in the 20 announced
sports categories for the boys and girls com-
bined.
However, the Glades Central cheerlead-
ers suffered a major loss as fellow senior
cheerleader Aungenai Wilson passed away
earlier in the day,
It was not confirmed what the cause of
death was.
As the cheerleaders held hands through-
out their segment of the awards ceremony,
it was evident that heavy hearts dominated
the atmosphere.
After their awards were handed out by
coach Jessica Moreland, the team left the
building to see about Wilson's family.
Hygens Succes, who won three academ-
ic awards that night, was devastated when
discovering what happened that day.
"When I got the news, I was shocked,
man," Succes said. "It's crazy because it hap-
pened just a week away from graduation."
Glades Central's high school graduation
will be tonight at 7 p.m. in the gymnasium.
"I remember speaking to her [Aungenai]
that day, I couldn't tell anything was wrong
with her. A lot of people were crying when
they found out, everyone was stunned."
Still, the ceremony carried on.
Succes, who will graduate tonight as the
seventh-ranked senior at Glades Central with
a 3.42 grade point average, won the 2009
Scholar Athlete of the Year.
Willie Johnson, a fellow senior who ran
track this season, was happy with the night's
outcome.
"I felt that everybody got what they de-
served," said Johnson, who qualified for the
Class 2A state meet in the long jump and the
4 x 100 relay. "His last name is Succes and
he lives up to it."
Succes, who also won the academic
award for football and the coaches award
for baseball, attributes his accomplishments
to understanding the importance of aca-
demics.
He'll be going to college for academics,
but hopes to have an opportunity to walk on

team.
"I've always believed in academics be-
fore athletics," Success said. "Once you
gain knowledge, you can never lose it," he
continued. But with football, it can be taken
away from you at any time."
Rantavious Wooten, who will be playing
college football for the University of Georgia
this fall, was the Most Valuable Player (MVP)
in both football and track.
He won the coaches award for boys bas-
ketball, as well.
Wooten, a four-star wide receiver, ac-
cording to Rivals.com., took home the Male
Athlete of the Year.

Spanish Ranchos, Fishing in Ole La Florida


Fishing operations found
in abundance by visiting
surveyors, conquering
countries

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
A lone fishing schooner floated silently
on the motionless, mirrored sea as daylight
quickly approached.
The shrouded darkness, which had en-
gulfed the night, began splitting like a tat-
tered garment, sending long shafts of glow-
ing lights streaking across the eastern skies.
The calmness that had prevailed aboard
the vessel now heightened to excitement, as
fishermen chatted and eagerly awaited the
dawn's light.
The early morning awoke to a fury of
white explosions that erupted around the
fishing schooner like cannon fire.
Huge schools of King Mackerel moved
like ominous, black clouds in the gin, clear
waters, viciously attacking the countless
schools of baitfish that surrounded the ves-
sel.
Men hurriedly threw their baited hand
lines over the ship's sides and soon taut lines
hummed, as the large, predatory fish fought
the metal hooks, embedded deep within
their jaws.
Live, silvery torpedoes, four and five
feet in length, churned the water's surface
before bouncing and flopping across the
schooner's weathered, wooden deck.
This fictitious tale is about the good old
days, when the bountiful waters around
South Florida had a limitless supply of fish
that were waiting for the taking.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the Spanish fishing camps along
old La Florida's west coast.
During the 1700s, the South Florida In-
dian populations were severely reduced by
European diseases and slavers, who ruth-
lessly hunted them.
The Indians living in South Florida re-
acted to these chaotic events and made an
unofficial alliance with their old enemy, the
Spanish.
This desperate action opened a door of
opportunity for the Spanish fishermen of
Cuba.
The truce allowed the Spanish fishermen
to develop fisheries on Indian territories in
South Florida that were life threatening, only
years earlier.
The Spanish constructed fishing "ran-
chos" or camps at Boca Grande (The en-
trance to Charlotte Harbor), southward to
San Carlos Bay and the Caloosahatchee
River.
Some South Florida Indians sought ref-
uge on these Spanish Ranchos, working and
fishing with the Spaniards.
The Spanish fishermen and Indians
formed a bond of trust that would endure
into the 1800s.
Over time many of the Indians spoke
Spanish and integrated into the Spanish cul-
ture.


It is thought by some historians that the
term "Spanish Indians" applied to the South
Florida Indians that lived and worked at the
Spanish fish camps.
The Seven Year War, also known as The
French and Indian War (1754 to 1763),
changed the ownership of La Florida.
In 1763, Spain ceded Florida to England,
in order to recover Cuba, which the English
had taken.
England now owned La Florida, but knew
little about the new tropical possession.
In 1763, George Gauld, a surveyor for the
English Admiralty, was commissioned to ex-
plore the southwest coast.
He reached the Tampa Bay area in the
summer of 1765, where he found Spanish
fishermen living on the Mullet keys.
Later he moved south to Charlotte Harbor,
entering the bay through Boca Grande and
discovered the cluster of islands known to
the Spanish as Los Cayos del Boca Grande.
He described the Spanish fishing camp,
"Plenty of carp (grouper) and other fish on
hooks, a dressing on the stage (fish racks for
curing fish).
"They begin by pressing the fish with a
great weight after it is split and salted, then
hang it up to dry.
"The last operation is to pile it up in the
huts ready for loading.
"They supply Havana and the other Span-
ish settlements in the West Indies, in the
Lent season."
Another Englishman, Bernard Romans,
in 1772, wrote about the Spanish fisheries
on the west coast of Florida, "We see every
year from September to March the Spanish
coming for fish during the season. It is not
uncommon to see three or four hundred
white men maintained, who only bring
some maize, rice and sweetmeats, and for
the rest depend upon their musquets, nets,
hooks, lines, and harpoons.
"During my three years there I have
yearly seen about one thousand tons weight
of dry'd salted fish go from the western
shore."
The old adage, "To the Victor Goes the
Spoils," went into effect when the American
Revolution ended with the Treaty of Paris in
1783.
Spain had supported the thirteen Ameri-
can Colonies during the war and was award-
ed "La Florida" in the Treaty of Paris negotia-
tions.
Spain reoccupied La Florida in 1783, and
in that same year sent a Spanish naval offi-
cer, Joseph Antoniio de Evia, to survey Char-
lotte Harbor.
He reported that the bay abounded in
fish.
According to his account, twelve to four-
teen fishing vessels annually plied its waters
carrying their catches to Havana.
The United States Government purchased
Florida from Spain for five million dollars in
1821.
The Americans like their predecessors,
the English, had few maps of Florida.
Captain Isaac Clark was authorized by
Congress in 1824, to survey territory around
Charlotte Harbor.
He began by taking an inland route from


Tampa Bay to Charlotte Harbor, but after
enduring much hardship, he concluded that
the completion of his plan, which would
have taken him as far south as Cape Sable,
was unthinkable.
Clark ran out of supplies and in despera
tion turned to the Spanish fishermen at
Charlotte Harbor.
He reported, "my supplies being exhaust-
ed, no game in the country, no settlements
south either Indian or whites, where sup-
plies could be obtained."
Mr. Clark said, "I procured from the fish-
ery by entreaty and threats one hundred
pounds of hard biscuit, some salt fish and
a small hog, and from an Indian I obtained
some dried venison in all about four days ra-
tions.
"There are three fisheries in the harbor.
They are established on the keys near the
entrance, in all forty three Spaniards and
several Indians.
"They live in huts constructed of the Pal-
metto similar to the Indians. They appear
to be industrious and attend to their Fishery
alone."
William A. Whitehead, Key West collec-
tor from 1831 to 1838, described two kinds
of commercial fishing along the gulf coast.
"First there was a small fleet of fishing
vessels, about thirty in number in 1831,
owned by New England masters, who regu-
larly caught fish and turtle and sold them,
either live or fresh, on the Havana market.
"For these fishermen, the work was sea-
sonal, being restricted to the winter months;
summers they spent in the north."
Mr. Whitman said, "The Spanish fisher-
men, on the other hand, cured or salted their
catches, selling them over a more extended
period on the Havana market."
Whitehead could not determine if the
two groups interfered with each other.
The Spanish lived on their ranchos, cured
their fish with salt, and even sold them in a
different quarter of Havana.
Their exports, he discovered, were dried
fish, fish roe, and fish oil.
Mr. Whitehead went on to say, "The esti-
mates of the number of persons engaged in
the fishing business vary greatly, as did the
number of "ranchos."
Whitehead was able to locate four main
establishments, employing altogether some
130 men, of whom probably half were In-


dians.
In addition, he found some thirty Indian
women and between fifty and 100 children.
Other visitors reckoned the total number
at the four fishing camps to be 400.
There were variances in the features of
the "ranchos."
Whitehead found that some were com-
posed of a number of dwellings, each struc-
ture some fifteen to twenty feet square and,
except for a framework of wood, thatched-
both walls and ceilings.
They were equipped with a few cook-
ing utensils, two or three stools, and a rude
table.
La Florida's Spanish fisheries would face
a bleak future in the 1830s.
The loyalty between the Cuban fisher-
men, Spanish Indians and the emerging
Seminoles, would be challenged when the
United States Government declared a state
of war with the Seminole Indian Nation in
1835.
There will be more Tale Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Florida is repopulated with Native Ameri-
cans that migrate from other parts of North
America.

Memorial Day is for Patriots


Lawmakers OK gaming compact


By David K. Rehbein
In some circles, patriotism has become
a synonym for arrogant or jingoistic. Some
people even use it as a political weapon;
"Don't question my patriotism," they say.
Yet, this Memorial Day, and every other day
for that matter, we should remember that
those who died for this country are the true
patriots.
Supreme Court Justice Oliver Wendell
Holmes called Memorial Day, "our most
respected holiday," and urged that "we not
ponder with sad thoughts the passing of
our heroes but rather ponder their legacy
- the life they made possible for us by their
commitment and pain."
At its core, Memorial Day has always
commemorated the universal all-encom-
passing understanding of, "No greater love
than this does any man have, that he lay
down his life for his friends."
President Lincoln put their sacrifice into
perspective at the battlefield in Gettysburg
when he said, "The world will little note,
nor long remember what we say here, but
it can never forget what they did here."
After the terrorists struck us on 9/11,
America was changed. Our all volunteer
force responded. People with comfortable
jobs left their towns and deployed with
their Reserve and Guard units. Some even
joined the active-duty forces. The exist-
ing military responded in its typical heroic
fashion, overthrowing a tyrannical regime
in Afghanistan and battling ruthless insur-


gents in Iraq. Thousands gave their lives.
The call to freedom came and they an-
swered. Just as their predecessors in the
two world wars, Korea, Vietnam, Beirut,
Grenada, and the Persian Gulf, the War on
Terrorism is being won by ordinary Ameri-
cans making extraordinary sacrifices.
One such man was Marine Cpl. Travis
Braddack-Nail of Portland, Ore. He played
the drums, loved punk rock and drove his
mother crazy with his tattoos. Although he
hoped to attend college, he extended his
stay in Iraq to help his platoon. "The pla-
toon wasn't surprised by his decision. He
would always step in and take his spot,"
a Marine buddy recalled. Travis was killed
two months later in an explosion during a
mine-clearing operation near Karbala. We
owe Travis, and the men and women like
him, our unending respect and gratitude.
The Preamble to The American Legion's
Constitution states in part, "to preserve the
memories and incidents of our associa-
tions in the Great Wars." On Memorial Day,
we call on all Americans to do this. Memo-
rial Day is not about trips to the beach or
sporting events. It's not about politics. It's
about people who have decided that the
United States is worth dying for. It's about
patriots.
David K. Rehbein, of Ames, Iowa, is
national commander of the 2.6 million-
member American Legion, www.legion.
org, the nation's largest wartime veterans
organization.

INI Florida
There were a lot of winners last week
when state legislators passed the Seminole
gaming compact. But, the real winner was
the State of Florida. Trying to find ways to
put add money to state coffers, the state
will get a minimum of $150 million annual-
ly in revenue sharing if the Seminole Tribe
approves the deal. It is anticipated that the
money will be put to use in the state educa-
tional system. The Senate passed the bill by
a 31-9 vote, while the House approved the
measure 82-35 as the Legislative session
was winding down Friday, May 8.
Even though Legislators gave their ap-
proval, the Seminole Tribe must still OK
the pact. If the Tribe approves the deal it
will then be sent to the U.S. Department of
Interior. It must also be ratified by the Leg-
islature. Under the agreement, the Tribe
will have blackjack and other card games
at three Broward County casinos and the
Hard Rock in Tampa. They will also be
able to put in Vegas-style slot machines at
all seven of their casinos, including the one
at Brighton Seminole Reservation.
Also, poker rooms at pari-mutuel fa-
cilities will stay open longer and will now
have larger pots. And, where already ap-
proved by South Florida voters, the tax
rate on the profit from slot machines will
be lowered from 50 to 35 percent. If voters
later approve, these pari-mutuels will also
be allowed to run blackjack and other card
games.
A Florida TaxWatch study done earlier


this year indicated that if the compact was
approved the state would lose money from
other tax sources, such as pari-mutuels.
However, the study went on to say that
after five years the state will see a net in-
crease. After the bill cleared both cham-
bers, the Seminole Tribe of Florida issued
a statement Friday saying it looked forward
to working out an agreement with Gover-
nor Charlie Crist.
"Today, we move closer to reaching an
agreement that will support education, put
unemployed Floridians back to work and
bring economic relief to our state. It is a
day that has been 19 years in the making
and we commend the Florida Legislature
for taking this critical step," said the state-
ment. "Going forward, we will conduct a
thorough review of the provisions in the
bill. We remain hopeful that together with
Gov. Crist and the Legislature we can agree
upon a compact."
The deal not only guarantees revenue
sharing with the Tribe, but lets the state
now use the more than $150 million al-
ready set aside by the original pact between
the Tribe and Gov. Crist. The governor and
the Seminoles entered into an agreement
in 2007 that gave the Tribe Vegas style slot
machines and blackjack. That agreement
was thrown out by the Florida Supreme
Court which ruled that Gov. Crist over-
stepped his authority. The high court said
only state Legislators could approve such
a deal.
The Tribe, however, went ahead with its
expansion plans.

Community Leaders Show their Support for CC S


"Light of the World" was the theme for
the 2009 CCS Dinner and Auction held on
May 2nd at the John Boy Auditorium. Over
200 guests arrived to show their support
for the school's annual effort to raise funds
for student scholarships and programs. The
"sea side" evening featured exquisite hors-
d'oeuvres and refreshments followed by
delightful shopping, then a coastal cuisine
marked by roasted beef tenderloin and
Maine Lobster.
Denise Hatton, coordinator of the stu-
dents Random Acts of Kindness Club (RAK
Club) spoke on stage about the many suc-
cessful community service projects that the
"emerging young leaders" have endeavored
this school year. Mrs. Hatton emphasized that
"the students make personal choices each
day to help others," and that "it is a joy to
see them grow in their Christian character."
Afterwards, the CCS Drama Club, directed
by teachers Lori Gibson and Susan Garbow,
very passionately shared a special message
through their evening performance- Help is
on the Way- CCS. "There were so many in
the audience who were heartbroken then


elated by the dramatic expression," said CCS
Board Member Kersten Maxson. The perfor-
mance was about a child who was unable
to prosper in a negative classroom environ-
ment, but how becoming a CCS student had
made the difference in every way. Guests
were reminded that CCS is a school of aca-
demic excellence and leadership where all

Fun under the Sun for CMS's Star Students

Clewiston Middle was awarded $650 by
Suncoast Schools Credit Union for student
rewards and recognition. These funds were
used to treat the top 12 students on each
team to a day of fun in the sun. The grant
paid for 72 students to enjoy a day of out-
door activities at Caloosahatchee Regional
Park. The students had the opportunity to
kayak in the Caloosahatchee River, hike on
nature trails, and participate in other outdoor.
activities. A group of volunteers prepared a
big barbeque lunch for the bunch.
Students were selected for their academic
achievement, overall improvement, and stel-
lar behavior. CMS would like to thank Sun- Submitted photo

students can thrive in a nurturing Christian
community of students and teachers despite
one's personal differences, cultural heritage,
or socio-economical background.
The guests responded to the heart felt
message by participating joyfully in the si-
lent and live auctions of the evening. Thou-
sands of dollars were generated through
ticket sales, item purchases, advertisement,
and flat donations. The Clewiston Christian
School appreciates all who helped to orga-
nize the evening and all who gave generous-
ly even in hard times. CCS also appreciates
the active citizens and business leaders who
partner with the school providing wonderful
role models for the children to observe dur-
ing community service opportunities.

Celibacy .. and other conflicts
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas Ph.D+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I was asked to comment on cleri-
cal celibacy, I thought about some of the re-
search done in an allied field, and what I have
observed over the years. I begin by stating
that I am under no obligation of celibacy and
do not comment as someone with the same
viewpoint as those who believe it is a vocation
for them or a key part of their ministry. In this
sense, I am an outsider making observations
from my own perspective -- only.
The problem arising when a recent report
of a clergyman was found on the beach with
a member of the opposite sex rears its head in
many church relationships, not just celibacy.
Over the years, I have known people who
have changed religions because they felt the
faith of their childhood was wrong on some
key issue and never found an explanation to
give them comfort within the framework of
what they were taught. Churches have had
differing points on alcohol usage, remarriage,
celibacy, birth control, the literal acceptance
of all or parts of the Bible -- and on and on.
There comes a time when a person finds him-
self questioning and not finding real answers,
cogent explanations for that he is supposed to
believe.
I have known some to deal with these con-
flicts by compartmentalizationn" or pretending
that the conflicts don't exists: "Do as I say, not
as I do." They may choose to politely (or not
so politely) ignore the tenets of their professed
faith; choosing what to accept and ignoring the
rest. Personally, I regard such a solution as un-
healthy and un-Christian. Wholeness is key to
well-being, physical, emotional, spiritual well-
being. We have read of a young priest caught
between his love for a woman and vows re-
quiring him to sublimate or deny a part of his
person. There are all sorts of statistics on the
success (or lack of it) on persons professing
to lead celibate lives; all sorts of commentary
about churches being "right" or "wrong" to
impose it; all sorts of opinions and ideas for
support or non-support of this practice.
I choose to look at a person who: 1. Has
a vocation to serve the Lord, ratified by his
parishioners and of his own declaration; and
2. Apparently being in love with another hu-
man being. What I would propose is that he
examine other churches and seek one most
compatible with what he professes and what
he believes, and what reconciles the conflict
he is feeling. That's a recommendation I've
made many times when someone tells me of
a conflict between what their church teaches,
what they feel, and how they are uncomfort-
able with where they find themselves.
"Reformation" isn't just a period in history;
sometimes it is a personal opening of doors
and a new face on personal religion. "Seek and
ye shall find; knock and it shall be opened unto
you." The answer is there, maybe by thinking,
then living, outside of the box!

Heart Love
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Try this! Put your fingertips from your right
hand up against the fingertips of your left hand.
You have just made a bridge. But if you bend
your fingertips together, and let your joined
thumb tips drop a little downward, your hands
create a heart. How you formed this heart with
your hands is what Heart Love is all about it


joins together and bends a little to meet the
other. Heart Love is a love that gives of itself
to another person then forgets the favor ren-
dered. It is a love that finds something to love
in the seemingly unlovable. Heart Love states,
"I love you and I want you to be happy and to
achieve the fullest stature of your being." Heart
Love is what God has given us, and Heart Love
is what we are called to give the world.
One night on Broadway, Mary Martin was
preparing to go on stage, as she had a 1000
times before in Rodger & Hammerstein's
South Pacific. Just before she took stage a note
was handed her. The note was short. It sim-
ply said: "Dear Mary, A bell's not a bell until
you ring it. A song's not a song until you sing
it. Love in your heart is not put there to stay.
Love isn't love till you give it away." The letter
was signed by Oscar Hammerstein, who was
that evening on his deathbed. When the play
was over the cast rushed her backstage and
asked, "What happened? We've never seen
you perform that way before?" Mary read to
them Hammerstein's note and said, "Tonight, I
gave my love away."
Make the heart again with your hands and
put it up to your face. Take a look around and
imagine taking a snapshot through your hand
heart of everything and everyone around you.
Now imagine going around every day doing
that. The challenge before us is to continue
to look at the world and people around us
through our Heart Love perspective that others
might know and experience God's Heart Love
through us. Remember, we are not necessar-
ily called to like everyone, but we are called to
love them. (Check out I John 4:7-8!) The ones
we love are not supposed to be perfect, but it
is the choice to love others and give love away
that matures and perfects each one of us as
Christians.

Pray for America!
By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church
Last week many in America celebrated
"National Day Of Prayer." We need to be pray-
ing for America every day of the year and not
just one. Why? Because the nation which loses
it sense of values and see its focus on gold, sil-
ver, stocks, bonds, houses, lands, property, and
pleasure NEEDS PRAYER!
The nation in which laws are flagrantly
broken, crime is winked at, justice is scorned,
riots, drunkenness, pornography, dope, abor-
tion, homosexuality and other immorality is
tolerated NEEDS PRAYER! And to pray is exact-
ly what every Christian is exhorted to do. Sup-
plication, prayers and intercession are to be
make for all in authority (I Timothy 2:1-2). It is
doubtful that America has ever stood in more
need of prayer for those in places of political
leadership than today!
It is a tragic fact that many people in Amer-
ica are first Democrats, Republicans or Inde-
pendents and then Christians. They place their
party politics above their Christianity. They
prayerlessly vote for men purely because they
are in the same party and not because they are
men of Christian conviction or moral charac-
ter. There is plenty of evidence in the Bible that
God responds to earnest prayers of His people
with regard to national interests. He has His
own sovereign ways of raising up and setting
aside rulers. God was quite ready to hear Abra-
ham's prayers for wicked Sodom and Gomor-
rah. Consider the impact of Daniel's prayer life
on the godless rulers of the great Babylonian
Empire. God's man of prayer was the instru-
ment through which Nebuchadnezzar and
Belshazzar learned that God rules in the king-
dom of men and "giveth it to whomsoever He
wills" (Daniel 4:25). Think of the effectiveness


of Nehemiah's prayers in the restoring of a
defeated, scattered and decadent nation. Take
a second look at Modecai and Queen Esther
when Haman's plot had signed and sealed
Israel's doom. But prayer reversed the whole
situation (Esther 4:1-17).
Pray for America every day' "If my people
which are called by my name shall humble
themselves, and PRAY, and seek my face, and
turn from their wicked ways, then will I hear
from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will
heal their land" (II Chron.7:14)

Woman accused of hitting school bus, fleeing scene


Bus carried three children,
bus driver, but no injuries

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
Montura -- Florida Highway Patrol of-
ficials arrested a Clewiston woman who is
accused of crashing into an occupied school
bus and then fleeing the scene.
According to the arrest report, FHP was
called in to respond to a crash involving a
school bus at the intersection of North Cab-
bage Palm and North Camino Real in Mon-
tura. The accident happened on May 6, be-
fore school started that day.


Deputies with the Hendry County Sher-
iff's Office informed the trooper that the
woman had been involved in a hit and run
accident, based on information from wit-
nesses and the children inside the school
bus at the time of the accident.
The driver of the school bus gave the
trooper the same information.
Deputies ran the suspect's name through
their database and found the suspect's ad-
dress.
Arriving at the suspect's house, the
trooper met with another deputy, who was
parked outside of the woman's home wait-
ing on the trooper. The suspect was inside.
According to the report, the woman ad-


mitted to the hit and run before the trooper
arrived.
Speaking to her, troopers report that the
woman appeared to be nervous, and ex-
plained that smoke from a nearby fire was
so thick while she drove that she was not
able to avoid the school bus striking her ve-
hicle.
According to the trooper, the woman
said visibility shrank to less than 20 feet at
the time, and told officials that she became
so scared that she left the scene in the 1998
Chrysler car she drove.
Compounding the issue, she said her car
was not registered, she had no insurance on
her vehicle and her license had been sus-


pended.
The suspect reportedly told FHP officials
that she had received a letter in the mail the
day before the accident that her license had
been suspended for failure to pay a traffic
fine.
Throughout the questioning, officials say
the woman was apologetic and said she
should have stayed on the scene.
She was arrested and transported to the
Hendry County jail. She faces charges of
driving while license suspended, hit and run,
no registration, among other charges.
No one was injured in the accident.

broken out just one street over, on Cabbage
Palm, Mr. Hernandez said. The fire intensi-
fied in minutes, and within a few hours had
seized an area several blocks across.
His modest home was spared from the
fire, but just barely. While he studied the
damage on Tuesday, a dark horseshoe en-
veloped the home on all sides, burnt grass
that came just a few feet away from the resi-
dence.
"We're in the center of it," he said in
Spanish.

Charred brush and small trees stuck out like arrows from the ground.


The retiree was happy enough that the
fire did not penetrate further, and seemed
to marvel that the home was saved, still
lamenting the fact that his boat suffered ir-
reparable damage.
In the hours after the fire, he said fire
fighters forced homeowners to the Montura
Clubhouse for their safety. It didn't last very
long, with residents returning to keep watch
over their own properties.
"Nothing is better than you watching out
for your own belongings," he said.
By then it was too late for the boat, Mr.
Hernandez said. He thought he could have
saved the vessel if he hadn't been forced to
leave.
His wife was similarly frustrated.


The impact from the crash, officers said,
propelled Mr. Withrows' vehicle onto the
grassy shoulder, while the other car was sent
into a clockwise direction. According to offi-
cials, Mr. Winthrow's vehicle, upon coming
to a stop, faced west, while Mr. Rodriguez's
vehicle faced east in the eastbound lane of


The five-year resident of Montura said she
had never seen anything like the fire before,
and swore that it must have been arson.
"Flames, flames and flames," the woman
said, pointing to just how far an area that had
been engulfed. "Here, everything burned
Someone must have started this."
Her feelings were shared by the fire of-
ficials who spent much of the following
day still battling the flames that sprouted
throughout the area. Drawing water from
a nearby canal, the Montura Volunteer Fire
Department sent its fire trucks from street to
street to contain the flames.
At the house where the fire may have
started, now reduced to its skeletal foun-
dation, a sign outside posted a reward for


information leading to the arrest of the in-
dividual, or individuals, responsible for start-
ing the blaze.
Mr. Hernandez may have wondered him-
self who would have started the fire, and
why, as he kept watch Monday.
He urged his wife, Rosa, to sleep since
he frankly could not close his eyes for more
than a second at the thought that the flames
would surround the home.
The next day, they headed into town to
purchase a $190 water canister since re-
sponding fire trucks had accidentally dam-
aged the one they kept, and they no longer
had running water.

IT'S A NEW BEGINNING FOR CHRYSLER CORP!
S | I want to assure all customers that the recent Chrysler Corp. bankruptcy announcement is not the
end, but a NEW BEGINNING! The restructuring will enable Chrysler to emerge stronger and more
competitive, Chrysler will not just survive, it will THRIVE!


You can be confident in purchasing a Dodge Chrysler or Jeep vehicle, today and always. President
Obama made it very clear in his speech last Thursday Chrysler is here to stay and if you're considering
purchasing a vehicle, support America and buy American.
"No one should be confused about what a bankruptcy process means," Obama said. "This is not a sign
of weakness but rather one more step on a clearly chartered path to Chrysler's revival."
The President went on to say, "If you are considering buying a car, I hope it will be an American car.
I want to remind you that if you decide to buy a Chrysler, your warrantee will be safe because it is
backed up by the United States Government". source: whitehouse.gov


I encourage you to stop
pricing and financing!
