Community meeting: Gang Reduction Task Force


Io-


INI/Ashley Smith
Detective Curtis Clay, with the Clewiston Police Department, urged parents to consider what
their children are doing, and analyze their actions for possible gang activity. He argued that
some music glorifies the gang mentality and should serve as one indicator.

Gangs: Beware or be aware?


Tell-tale signs of
organized crime
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Driving a
car that's been lowered and fit-
ted with chrome rims probably
doesn't make you a gang mem-
ber, but coupled with other tell-
tale signs, may be an indicator of
an affinity toward gang activity.
That much was clear to at
least some of the members of the
regional gang task force during a
meeting at the John Boy Audito-


rium.
The group met during this
most recent meeting to focus on
deciphering the many gang signs
and propaganda that some local
children, as well as adults, are
using to send messages by code
-- to their own, to rival gangs, and
others.
Detective Curtis Clay, with the
Clewiston Police Department,
sorted through photos of gang
graffiti, tattoos, crowds of kids
flashing gang signs -- project-
ing the photos onto the screen
-- pictures of adults drinking with
teenagers; "There's no reason an
adult should be next to a juvenile


while he smokes and drinks," the
detective said.
In another of the pictures, a
young adult held out the tattooed
side of his hands, featuring the
letters "F" and "G."
"If you ask him, he'll say it's
For the Gators. Be nosy," he said,
sure to mention that the problem
does not exist within a single de-
mographic. "It ain't all Spanish. It
ain't all Black," he said.
The detective said local gangs
are now attracting the attention of
the large gangs they once looked
up to. The stakes are higher than

in fire
Officials suspect
arson, burglary;
family of 7 unharmed
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON On the heels of
an arson the week before, officials
with the fire marshall are investigat-
ing a strange arson case involving a
mobile home on El Paso Avenue in
Clewiston.
The investigation into it contin-
ues, although officials suspect that
fire was started by one or more sus-
pects who burglarized the home
before setting it on fire.
Fortunately, no one in the family
of seven was home when the fire
started.
According to fire marshall offi-
cials, a call came in shortly before
midnight to the Clewiston Police
Department referencing a house
on fire at the Fairgrounds Mobile
Home Park.
Callers reported seeing smoke
billowing from the home on Lot
28, located at 813 El Paso Ave..
Responding units with the
Clewiston Fire Department "at-
tacked" the fire and were able to
contain the flames, according to
Adam Rivero, detective with the
state fire marshall.
Entering the home to ensure
that no one was inside at the time
of the fire, fire fighters were unable
to determine what caused the fire,
and called in the state fire marshall
to continue the investigation -- a

Spring football game at Glades Day School


Glades Day's Home game
vs. American Heritage-Plan-
tation to be played tonight
at 7 p.m.

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE Since Glades Day's first
spring football practice (May 4), two char-
acteristic traits have emerged in this year's
team.
They're self-motivated and display a
healthy dose of team chemistry, as observed
by Pete Walker, the Gators head coach.
As they hold their daily football practices,
one could sense a true team bond which
may make for a special year, given the fact
that Glades Day will be a relatively young
bunch.
Take Tanner Redish, for example.
A sophomore-to-be, Redish is considered
by his teammates and coaches as a quarter-
back who is quickly learning what it takes to
become a respectable signal caller.
With a relatively good arm and an unex-
pected poise in the pocket, Walker is high on
his emerging leader, though there won't be
much expected from him this year.
Glades Day's offense is slated to become


a mostly-running one, with freshman-to-
be Kelvin Taylor holding down the tailback
spot.
Finishing with 1,692 rushing yards and 27
touchdowns as an eighth-grader last year,
Walker is simply expecting him to just be-
come 'a better Kelvin this year.'
Expect the offense to feature some play
action as well, with Redish getting some op-
portunity to make some plays, particularly
in tonight's spring game against American
Heritage-Plantation.
The Gators have recently picked up Tony
Kibler, a senior-to-be transfer from Okeecho-
bee.
Listed at 6-6 and 310 lbs., Kibler is regard-
ed as one of the area's top college prospects,
with a slew of major-college offers already
coming his way.
Kibler, who will play both sides of the ball
as a tackle, is projected to be a reckoning
force on the line this season.
Hopefully, he'll help improve on Glades
Day's biggest weaknesses of the past two
years the run defense and the overall play
of the defensive line.
"Anytime you could get someone like
that, it does nothing but good for our team,"
Walker.
Those two areas of concern are going to
be critical in tonight's matchup.
Last spring, when these two teams met,


Glades Day came out on top by a score of
21-0.
If the Gators hope to win their second
straight home game against American Her-
itage-Plantation, both sides of the ball must
be in sync throughout the contest.
The secondary, which believe it or not,
is Glades Day's biggest strength on defense,
will feature junior-to-be Eaton Spence, con-
sidered the team's best overall defensive
back.
Spence, who was a featured cornerback
last season, will likely be moved to safety for
tonight's spring game and for the entire up-
coming year.
Joshua Thornton, who suffered a bruised
shoulder last week during a tackling drill at
practice, will start tonight at cornerback.
Considered a respectable cover back and
the team's fastest player, the junior-to-be
may very well emerge as one of the team's
top overall players, depending on how he
does in the spring game.
Clint Johnson, who's listed at 6-1 in
height, will be the team's other starting cor-
nerback.
All eyes will be on what the defense does
tonight, as it could be a good indicator of
what to expect this season from the young
group.
Davonte Allen, yet another junior-to-be,
will come in as Glades Day's top receiver.


Allen has already proven that he's capa-
ble of being a playmaker, as evidenced by
his touchdown catch in the May 15 Green
and Gold game.
Walker on the outcome of the Green and
Gold game, which is basically a scrimmage.
"It was good to see some guys stepping
up on both sides of the ball," Walker said of
his team.
"Guys will get an opportunity to show
us what they can do in the spring game to-
night."
Walker said he's not too focused on win-
ning this game, but is looking to see how
well his defenders will tackle tonight.
Also, the Glades Day coach wants to limit
injuries as much as possible, since many of
his starting linemen, in particular, won't be
playing tonight.
Overall, Walker likes what he sees from
his players, with just one parting comment
on the team's progress.
"They're simply going out there to try
and get better," he said.

New application process


for alligator hunting


permits starts June 1


The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) will use new
permit-application procedures this year to
resolve past permit issuance problems for
the highly popular statewide alligator har-
vest program.
In Phase I of the new process, applica-
tions will be accepted for a random drawing
from 10 a.m. (EDT) June 1 through 11:59
p.m. (EDT) June 15. Approximately 6,000 al-
ligator harvest permits will be available.
During the Phase I random drawing,
each person may submit only one no-cost
application, which provides the option of
prioritizing up to five hunt area and period
choices. All people seeking a harvest permit
must be at least 18 years of age by Aug. 15,
2009. A permit allows the harvest of two al-
ligators on a designated area.
Applications can be submitted at any
county tax collector's office, license agent
(retail outlet that sells hunting and fish-
ing licenses), and at MyFWC.com/License.
Drawing results will be posted at MyFWC.
corn/Hunting no earlier than June 17. Fee
payments must be made at the locations ref
erenced above by June 29.
Any permits remaining after this period
will be offered during Phase II on a first-
come, first served basis from 10 a.m. (EDT)
July 1 through 11:59 p.m. (EDT) July 6. Peo-
ple who purchased a permit during Phase
I may not apply. Applicants in Phase II are
limited to one permit.
If permits are available after Phase II, they
will be offered during Phase III on a first-
come, first served basis fromlO a.m. (EDT)
July 7, until all permits are sold. People who
purchased a permit in Phase I or II may ap-
ply for additional permits during Phase III.
Successful applicants must submit pay-
ment for an alligator trapping license and
two alligator harvest tags, or provide proof
of a valid alligator trapping license (must
be valid through Nov. 1, 2009) and pay the
fee for two harvest tags. No other hunting
licenses are required.


The cost for an alligator trapping li-
cense and alligator harvest tags is $271.50
for Florida residents, and nonresidents pay
$1,021.50. The cost for each additional alli
gator hunting permit is $61.50, regardless of
residency. All fees are nonrefundable.
An alligator trapping agent license is
also available for $51.50, which allows the
license holder to assist permitted trappers
take alligators.
The alligator hunting season will run 11
consecutive weeks from Aug. 15 through
Nov. 1.
To educate participants on the how-to's
and rules and regulations of the hunts, the
FWC offers a no-cost, three-hour training
and orientation program, which is held at
various locations throughout the state. Per-
mit recipients are not required to attend, but
first-time participants are strongly encour-
aged to go. Courses will be offered in July
and August, and permit holders will receive,
by mail, permit packages listing dates and
locations.

ing alligator hunts, visit: MyFWC.com/Wild-
life Habitats/Alligator_index.htm.

Local nurses joined in celebrating Nat
help the local hospital foundation.

Rather than enjoy
appreciation during Nurses
Week, local nurses join
for a worthy cause

By Glenda Wilson
National Nurses Week is celebrated an-
nually from May 6 (also known as National
Nurses Day) through May 12.
During this week-long event, nurses are
recognized from coast to coast for the work
they perform and the role they play in the
delivery of healthcare.
Each year during National Nurses Week,
Hendry Regional Medical Center honors its
nurses in a variety of ways from providing a
special evening meal to giving small gifts of
appreciation.
However, this year, the hospital nurses
wanted to change the routine; instead of re-
ceiving, they wanted to give.
They put a plan into place and decided
that they would hold a bake sale to benefit
the hospital foundation.
They even went so far as to secure an
anonymous donor to match the funds
raised.

Furthermore, they chose to forfeit the gift
that they would normally receive and give
that money to the hospital foundation as
well.
On Thursday, May 7, this wonderful
group of compassionate, caring, healthcare
providers hosted a morning bake sale that
raised $1,620 in only four hours for the Hen-
dry Regional Medical Center Foundation!
They started out selling cookies, brown-
ies, slices of cake, pies, and other desserts
that they had baked.
Next, they auctioned off five more fantas-
tic sweets.
Hospital employees enjoyed the scrump-
tious goodies, as they too supported the
HRMC Foundation through their contribu-
tions.
There are many qualities that define a
nurse one is dedication and commitment
to the profession, with a nurturing, caring
and giving heart.
Hendry Regional Medical Center is proud
to say that its nurses not only possess this
wonderful quality, but also many more that
are required of them in their career field.
Although National Nurses Week is over,
don't pass up an opportunity to say thanks
to the nurses in our community.

Walk in the Past: The War of Spanish Succession


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum

Tall pine trees carpeted
the valley in a sea of green
that wavered, then disap-
peared before the broad,
earthen fields that stretched
from the forest to the river's
edge.
Stalks of corn, tipped with
silky, golden tassels, blanket-
ed the cleared land in quilted
patchworks of emerald green
and red earth tones.
Rough, hewn cabins
nestled among the fields sent
white smoke spouting from
clay chimneys that drifted
slowly across the ripened
fields and woodlands.
Settlers dressed in coarse,
homespun cloths, moved
about their cabins, perform- "A Walk in t
ing tasks as fissures of light and galleries
crinkled across the early
morning sky.
Lean warriors, crouching
at the forest edge, gazed across the green
fields anxiously awaiting the signal to at-
tack.
Moments later, a tall, solemn warrior
stepped forward and waved his musket to-
ward the cabins.
Screaming hordes emerged ecstatically
from the forest, banishing muskets.
In fleeting moments, murderous havoc
rained upon unsuspecting settlers.
The harshness and uncertainty of frontier
life was vivid after the attack.
Corpses of fleeing settlers lay strewn
across the fields and river banks, as smoke
from the fiercely burning cabins mush-
roomed into the sky.
This fictitious tale relates the uncertain
ties of pioneer life on the frontier during the
1700s in America.
The brutality and deaths of innocent
white and Indian people, alike, assert the
tragedy that has befallen humans since our
beginning.
Greed, wealth, and power have been
and will continue to be mankind's Achilles'
heel.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the events that brought other Na-
tive Americans to La Florida.
The wars that ravaged Europe in the
1700s literally bled over to the Americas.
Many Indian Nations trading with rival
European countries were drawn into alli-
ances that entangled them in the European
struggles for dominance in North America.
These power struggles would destroy
many Indian Nations and force some to
relocate or assimilate with other Indian Na-
tions.
In the late 1600s, an undeclared war was
waged between England and Spain on La
Florida and Carolina soils.
This small war consisted of raids and pu-
nitive actions by both sides that were incon
clusive.
However, "The War of Spanish Succes-
sion" in 1701, changed British policy and


INI/Ashley Smith
he Past" author Butch Wilson invites the community to take advantage of the historical displays
as at the Clewiston Museum.


strategy in La Florida.
England chose a campaign to eradicate
the Spanish missions that buttressed North
Florida's borders.
England's strategy would require colonial
troops and native warriors.
The Yamasee and some Creeks were al-
lied with the British.
They had conducted raids with the Brit-
ish in La Florida during the late 1600s, and
readily joined ranks with the British in 1701,
raiding and plundering the Spanish missions
in North Florida.
The Spanish missions were destroyed by
1708.
The destruction of the missions allowed
the invading British and Indian raiders to at-
tack deeper into Florida, until the Yamasee
Indians raiders eventually reached the keys.
The Yamasee Indians are credited as the
main Indian force responsible for Indian
raids into La Florida during "The War of
Spanish Succession."
The war ended in 1713, but the Yamasees
continued to raid until 1715.
In 1715, a war broke out in South Caro-
lina called the Yamasee War.
The cause of the war was complex and
differed among the many Indian Nations
that participated.
Commitment differed as well, with some
Indian Nations fighting to the bitter end, oth-
ers fighting only briefly, some divided, some
changing sides.
The war started with a coalition of vari-
ous Indian nations (Yamasee, Cherokee,
Creek, Chickasaw, Catawba, and others)
that were unhappy with Indian land losses
to encroaching settlers, trade agreements
and slavery issues.
It became one of the most serious Indian
threats to European dominance in the his-
tory of America.
The war was bloodier than the King Phil-
ip's War in New England and is estimated
to have killed 7% of the white population in
South Carolina.
The people of South Carolina were fac-


ing annihilation, but were saved when the
Cherokee Indian Nation sided with them in
1716.
It is ironic that the Cherokee Nation
saved the South Carolina citizens from an-
nihilation.
Little did they know that a man of des-
tiny would be birthed in South Carolina; his
name was Andrew Jackson.
In the War of 1812, Andrew Jackson be-
came a national hero in the Battle of New
Orleans and later the seventh president of
the United States of America.
During his administration, he passed the
Indian Removal Act, which called for the
removal of all Indians living east of the Mis-
sissippi to Indian territories west of the Mis-
sissippi.
The Cherokees were forced to relocate to
their new homeland in an infamous journey
that would become known as "The Trail of
Tears."
The Yamasee War ended in 1717, with a
major defeat for the Yamasees. Many of the
Yamasees fled to La Florida and later allied


themselves with the Span-
iards.
The Ochese Creek, who
were thought to be the insti-
gators of the war, moved out
of South Carolina and relo-
cated along Chattahoochee
River.
Groups of Yamasee,
Apalachee and others fol-
lowed the Ochese Creek.
Some historians think
these Indians integrated into
the Ochese Creek culture.
It is thought that term
"Ochese Creek," was a gen-
eral term, which settlers
used to identify Creeks liv-
ing on the Ochese Creek in
Georiga.
The term Ochese Creek
would later be defined as
the "Lower Creek" by Euro-
pean settlers.
It was a geographical
term that applied to the
Creeks living on the middle
or lower Chattahoochee
River, on the Alabama-Geor-


gia border.
Creeks living on the Coosa and Tallapoo-
sa above the forks of the Alabama River
were called "Upper Creeks".
There will be more Tale Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
the Creeks and other Indian Nations settle
in Florida.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale of
a Tale" that you would like to share.
The Museum's hours are Monday
through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The museum provides an interesting,
fossil display of prehistoric animals that
once roamed the Glades thousands of years
ago and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston.
Our theater has a 65-seat capacity and
presents movies on the History of Clewis-
ton, Sugar Cane Harvesting, and The Or-
ange Industry.
Come by and enjoy a 45- minute group
tour for $2 per person.

Montura burglar arrested


During this
tura residents
have been dev-
astated by a rash
of burglaries that
have occurred.
Sheriff Whidden
concerned with
this activity, initi-
ated a task force
to concentrate




ers and other arrests are pending.
After following up on witness statements,
Investigators determined thatJose RubenOr-
tez, 28 years of age, of Foxbriar Trailer Park,
Clewiston, rented a U-Haul truck and used it
to transport stolen property from homes he
burglarized in the Montura area.
Acting on a tip, Investigators responded
to a Mini-storage unit, located at Red Road
in Clewiston to follow up on the informa-
were able to speak with Oertez who was un-e
cooperative with investigators, so a search
warrant was obtained and executed for the
storage unit. Once inside Deputies discov-
ered three (3) ATVs, furniture, a flat screen
television, and other appliances.
Investigators then went back to the
residence where they were able to search
the home of Ortez. Upon approaching the


home, one of the Investigators immediately
recognized a dog that had been reported
stolen from a residence in Montura, along
with multiple flat screen tv's, laptops, video
game systems, cds and dvds. luggage, am-
munition, cameras, and various other elec-
tronics.
While several of the victims from the
Montura area have been able to identify
many items that have been recovered, this
series of burglaries still remains under inves-
tigation.
At this time Jose Ruben Ortez, has been
arrested and charged with two(2) counts
of Burglary, two(2) counts of Grand Theft,
two(2) counts of Damage to Property $1,000
or more and three(3) counts of Vehicle
Theft.
On May 19, 2009, Richard Odel Ortez, 25
years of age, of Foxbriar Trailer Park, was
arrested and charged with two(2) counts
of Burglary, two(2) counts of Grand Theft,
two(2) counts of Damage to Property $1,000
or more and three(3) counts of Vehicle
Theft.
Sheriff Whidden stated this kind of activ-
ity will not be tolerated and he contributes
the overall success of this investigation to
the cooperation of the community and Sher-
iff's Office. "I cannot express the importance
of community involvement. This is an out-
standing example of how the community
can act as the eyes and ears for the Sheriff's
Office. Without the support of those willing
to come forward, it makes our job much
more difficult."

The Tobacco industry has to spend billions of dollars each year to hook new users and keep
others from quitting. Why? They lose 1,200 customers per day. Not because people are quitting
at high rates, no. It's because people are dying from diseases associated with tobacco use. Did
you know tobacco use causes over 400,000 deaths in the United States each year? That's more
than AIDs, alcohol, murder, car crashes, suicides, and illegal drugs combined!
The Tobacco industry has a long and shameless history of promoting their products. Tobacco
companies in the U.S. spend as much as 75% of their marketing dollars in tobacco retail stores,
including the convenience stores and gas stations in your town. Tobacco companies lead the way
in paying store owners to display their products in the most visible locations throughout the store.
The typical retail store has more than 12 tobacco promotional items on display, and 92% of
retails stores have at least one tobacco branded marketing item, such as an ad or display. Studies
show point of purchase advertising, or advertising located where the customer buys the products,
boosts sales anywhere from 12-28%.
You might be thinking... how does this affect me and my community?
Consider this. Kids are three times more sensitive than adults to advertising, and almost twice
as likely to remember the ads they see. Retail cigarette and snuff advertising increases the likeli-
hood that youth will not only try tobacco, but will be more inclined to move from experimenta-
tion to regular use. Surveys have shown us that youth are more influenced by tobacco advertising
than by peer pressures. Approximately 750,000 kids will become new regular, daily smokers this
year. Almost a third of those kids will die from tobacco use.
Kids in the U.S. smoke almost a billion packs of cigarettes per year. This represents a pretty
good return on investment for the tobacco companies. While the tobacco industry reaps massive
profits, our kids get hooked on nicotine, increasing their chances of becoming lifelong customers.
They'll spend thousands of dollars on a product which may eventually kill them.
Florida law prohibits customers from having direct access to tobacco products. The next time
you're in a convenience store, gas station, or any location where tobacco products are sold, take
a look around. Ask store owners or managers to keep all cigarettes and smokeless tobacco prod-
ucts behind the counter. Are there any ads displayed at or below three feet high? This is a young
child's eye level. Ask store owners or managers to reduce the type of advertising that children
can see. Support those stores who do a good job of limiting tobacco and other harmful market-
ing. For help in quitting all tobacco products contact the Hendry County Health Department at
(863) 674-404, Glades County Health Department at (863) 946-0707, or the Florida Quit
Line at 1-877-822-6669. Freedom is within reach!

2008 Annual Drinking Water Quality Report
South Shore Water Association/City of Clewiston

Este infornn conticncn infonnacion nmy important sobre agua de deber Traduzcalo o hable con algmen que lo enticnda bicn.
We are very pleased to provide you with this year's Annual Quality Water Report. We want to keep you informed about the quality water aid services we deliv-
er to you every day. This report is provided pursuant to Federal and State drinking water requirements. We are pleased to report that our drinking water exceeds
all federal and state requirements.
Your water source is City of Clewiston Reverse Osmosis Water Treatment Plant, which officially went on-line January 08, 2008. The plant draws
water from the Flondan Aquifer. Water from tluis aquifer is of high quality and less vulnerable to pollutants which could be caused by runoff or surface
water. This brackish water is drawn from (4) wells which are 1200 feet deep. The water is pumped to the treatment plant, then passed through micron
filters, then to the Reverse Osmosis membrane process which removes any contaminants, minerals and salts in the water to produce high quality drink-
ing water which exceeds water quality standards. After thdie RO process, the water is disinfected and fluoride is added to die drinking water to enhance
dental health for the community, then pumped to a 1 5 million gallon storage tank and finally distributed to the customers. If you have any questions
about thls report or concerning your water utility, or want to obtain a copy of tins report, please contact the office at (863) 983-9830
South Shore Water Association routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws Tins table shows
the results of our monitoring for the period ofJanuary 1st to December 31st, 2008, except where otherwise indicated. For contaminants not required
to be tested for in 2008, test results are for the most recent testing done in accordance with the regulanons.
The FDEP conducted a statewide assessment of public drinking water systems in 2004 No assessment of this system has been made to date
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water trav-
els over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick
up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity
Contaminants that may be present in source water include
* Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septe systems, agricultural hvestock operations, and wildlife.
* Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic
wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
* Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater mrnoff and residential uses. Organic chemical
contaminants, including syntheuc and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can,
also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.
* Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount ofcertain contaminants in water provided by pub-
lic water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water, winch must provide the
same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of con-
taminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be
obtained by calling the Environmental Protecton Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at 1-800-426-4791,
Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population Immuino-compromised persons such as per-
sons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disor-
ders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care
providers EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by cryptosporidium and other microbiological contaminants are
available from the Safe Drinking Water I lotline (800-426-4791).

In this table you may find unfamiliar terms and abbreviations To help you better understand these terms we've provided the following definitions
* Action Level (AL) The concentration of a contaminant, whach, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements, wnuch a water system must follow
* Maximum Contaminant Level (MCL) The highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs
as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
* Maximum Contaminant Level Goal (MCLG)- the level oa contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health.
MCLGs allow for a margin of safety
* Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL The highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water There is convincing evidence that
addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control ofn microbial contaminants
* Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG' The level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk
to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control microbial contaminants.
* "ND" means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis
* Parts per million (ppm) or Milligrams per liter i, one part by weight ofanalyte to 1 million parts by weight of the water sample.
* Parts per billion (ppi i per liter -i. one part by weight ofanalyte to 1 billion parts by weight of the water sample.
* Picocuries per liter i of radioactivity in water

If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is pri-
marily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing South Shore is responsible for providing high quality drink-
ing water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can min-
imize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking Ifyou are concerned
about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to
minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http.//wwwepa.gov/safewater/lead.

One of these is the sacrifices that others
have made in our behalf.
Just before take-off, a line of ten soldiers
came down the aisle and filled all the vacant
seats. A man asked, "Where are you head-
ed?"
"Petawawa. We'll be there for two weeks
for special training, and then we're being de-
ployed to Afghanistan."
After flying for about an hour, an an-
nouncement was made that sack lunches
were available for five dollars. The man
overheard one soldier ask his buddy if he
planned to buy lunch.
"No, that seems like a lot of money for just
a sack lunch." Probably wouldn't be worth
five bucks. I'll wait till we get to base."
His friend agreed.
The man looked around at the other sol-


diers. None were buying lunch. He walked
to the back of the plane and handed the
flight attendant a fifty-dollar bill.
"Take a lunch to all those soldiers."
She grabbed his arms and squeezed
tightly. Her eyes wet with tears, she thanked
him.
"My son was a soldier in Iraq; it's almost
like you are doing it for him."
Picking up ten sacks, she headed up the
aisle to where the soldiers were seated.
Others caught on to what was happen-
ing, and purchased more sack lunches for
the soldiers to eat on the way to their base.
Ten young men left that flight feeling the
love and respect of their fellow travelers.
Watching, the man thought, "These sol-
diers are giving their all for our country. We
could only give them a couple of meals. It
seems so little..."
Memory is a tricky thing.
There are some things, however, that we
should never forget.
Memorial Day is for remembering.

they were five years ago, now that local kids
are receiving direct oversight by gangs in
Palm Beach County and other areas.
"Believe it or not, the kids are looking
for discipline," Detective Clay argued. "They
want somebody to say to them, 'Stop here.
The line is here.' It's the same thing we
should be doing as parents."
The key is reigning kids in when they are
still young.
"I have a hard time communicating with
my children," Detective Clay admitted. "My
dad wasn't a talker, either. But let me tell
you something, when they get to 14 and 15,
you're about as stupid as stupid gets. Talk to
them while they're young and they want to
talk to you."

The fire marshall investigation yielded
some clues, but officials continue canvass-
ing the area for more information.
"We do know that it appears the perpe-
trators had set fire to some furnishings inside


It all starts at home.
"We need to look inside. Maybe we need
to change something about the way we're
doing things."
One of the easiest ways to identify a gang
member is the proclivity to wear a bandan-
na.
Again, be nosy, the detective said.
"I'm a fat, bald man and I don't carry a
bandanna around, and I sweat like a pig,"
he said.
The meeting was conducted in a very
open manner, with members and guests en-
couraged to share their opinion of what has
been occurring throughout the community,
the emergence of worrying trends in vio-
lence and organized crime.
Many here believe they are at a cross-
roads at an important time in the develop-
ment of crime in Hendry County, and things
will either improve definitively, or worsen.
The attention from the larger gangs has

the residence," said Detective Rivero. "There
was extensive structural damage to the in-
terior contents. The residence is no longer
inhabitable."
Detective Rivero said the fire marshall's
office found evidence to support the idea
that a burglary was committed at the loca-
tion, minutes before the fire consumed the
home.
"There is an active criminal investiga-


already proven dangerous.
One recent shooting at Trinidad Park has
resulted in nine arrests, Detective Clay said,
though two suspects are still on the loose.
With several meetings under their belts,
the members, representing Hendry and
Glades counties, seemed as energized as
ever about tackling crime, although some
said they worried about possible backlash
from the very groups they are hoping to dis-
band.
One woman, who sat in the meeting
alongside her husband, said her mother, "a
little old lady who loves everyone," fretted
about her daughter's involvement in the task
force.
It's clear that there is a developing prob-
lem when a grandmother is intimidated, she
shared.
"We can't allow ourselves to be intimi-
dated," said Karson Turner, one of the task
force's co-chairs, and a county commission-

tion," he said. "We are following several
leads in an attempt to identify the perpetra
tors in conjunction with the Clewiston Police
Department."
Officials are offering up to a $5,000 re-
ward for information leading to the arrest
and conviction of the arsonist, or arsonists.
Residents with information on the fire are
urged to contact the Clewiston Police De-
partment's criminal investigations division.
The Red Cross responded soon after the
emergency, and helped the family by paying
for their stay at a local hotel.
According to Thomas Hernandez, the
Red Cross branch specialist, the family


er. "We're playing psychological warfare
here."
The participants numbered approximate-
ly 30, including residents of the areas most
affected, Twin Lakes and Fairgrounds, some
of whom spoke little English, but pledged to
help.
"I'm here to cooperate," one woman
said in Spanish. "It's just not fair. I've lived
here eight years and it has always been qui-
et. Now, I'm scared to go out. We are living
