Goodwill one of the last pieces of the Plaza puzzle


Company to open
super store, service
center at K Mart
Plaza
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- When he and
partner Floyd Salkey purchased
the K Mart Plaza four years ago,
Yasir Khan knew that the parcel
was prime land.
"We just saw the need that was


there, in this place next to the Wal-
Mart that was completely empty,"
said Mr. Khan.
He hoped he could renovate
the almost abandoned plaza and
breathe new retail life into the
land. He and partner are just one
step away.
Mr. Khan has been supervis-
ing some construction work at
one of the spaces in the plaza, a
23,000 sq. ft. area that will house a
Goodwill super store in just a few
weeks. At the close of the week,
he's turning over the keys to the
new tenants, who expect to open


the last week of July.
It will house a retail store that
is much larger and is a more mod-
ern departure from its current lo-
cation on Sugarland Highway, as
well as a service center to help
rehabilitate people into the work-
force, and salvage center.
Mr. Khan came up with the
idea after he read an article on the
Goodwill company, its large pres-
ence on the west coast of Florida,
and how, even in a recession, the
organization is doing very well.
Having been around for more
than 100 years -- the company


was founded in 1902 -- Goodwill's
model of accepting donations and
re-selling to provide essential edu-
cation and career services to peo-
ple with disadvantages has been
newly embraced by the 'green'
culture of today.
Clothes are re-used and a sal-
vage aspect of the operation sees
the company selling many tons of
clothes that has languished at the
racks to foreign groups, according
to Mr. Khan.
The non-profit has earned bil-

Pioneer Clean up
Saturday, March 23, 2009, over 60 Pioneer residents and friends met at the
Pioneer community Center for the first community clean-up. Armed with gar-
bage bags young and older ones walked the streets and roads of Pioneer
cleaning up any and everything along the road side. Bottles, glass, cans,
paper trash, old tires, unusable grabage cans, a mattress, and many, many
more items were collected. As a result the streets and roads look very much
improved. After the clean-up everyone stayed for a bar-b-q with lots of food.
Door prizes were awarded and the Homeowner's Association would like to
thank the following for their help with the door prizes. Wal-Mart, McDonalds,
J&J Pharmacy, Tommy Perry, (Johnson-Prewitt & Associates), Tractor Sup-
ply, Don Schrotenboer (Alico), Rodeo Bar & Grill, Subway, Labelle Ranch
Supply, Hungry Howie, Ace Hardware, Sonny's and Commissioner Karson
Turner. We thank everyone who took the time on a holiday weekend to come
and help. Dumpsters for recycling have been moved to the park area. Card-
board, newspapers, old phone books, number 1-7 plastic containers, and
aluminum cans are some of the things you can help your community by re-
cycling.

Glades Day Gators triumph during spring game


Glades Central and Pahokee
compete tomorrow night

By Naji Tobias
IN[ Florida
GLADES Kelvin Taylor knew he was
going to make an impact in Glades Day's
spring game.
He rushed for 158 yards and three touch-
downs in the Gators 35-12 win over Ameri-
can Heritage-Plantation on May 21.
But Taylor, who will become a freshman
in the fall, knows that there's no 'I' in team.
The running back simply talked about
the play of his fellow teammates, such as
quarterback Tanner Redish and wideout
Davonte Allen. Redish threw two intercep-
tions in the game and Allen had five catches
for 30 yards, but Taylor is highly confident
they'll get better in time.
"Tanner and Davonte will bounce back,"
Taylor said of his two teammates.
"That's just part of them being nervous."
Taylor said in light of Redish's mistakes,
particularly, 'that's the whole part of learning
how to play the game'.
"As Tanner works on his footwork this
summer, he's gonna be really good," he said
of Redish. "Tanner and his receivers [Allen
and Clint Johnson] are gonna have a nice


connection and that's just gon
better."

as the team's best defensive bac

46 total) and up, as Boyd Anderson reportedly runs the
win over the spread offense, which features multiple


wide receiver sets.
With Pahokee's defense tailor-made to
stop the run, it may very well be the second-
ary who'll decide the outcome of tomorrow
night's game. The Blue Devils defensive
backs are led by Merill Noel, who's now one
of the most coveted college prospects in the
area.
During Pahokee's first spring practice,
with college scouts from Florida, Florida
State, Miami and West Virginia watching,
Noel could be seen locking down the likes
of newcomer Chris Dunkley, De'Joshua
Johnson, Dennis Hall and Fred Pickett.
Noel even used his nifty cornerback
moves on Kaalum Williams, who's expect-
ed to see some playing time at receiver to-
morrow night.
Dunkley, who transferred from Royal
Palm Beach last month, and Pickett, who
came to Pahokee from Glades Central in
January, will not play in the spring game.
FHSAA (Florida High School Athletic As-
sociation) rules prohibit anyone transferring
from another school to play in the spring
game, likely because the school year has not
been completed at that time.
Pahokee will be facing off against Boyd
Anderson at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lau-
derdale May 29 at 7 p.m.

$53.5 million land donation for restoring Everglades


Pahokee cemetery benefits
from land donation

West Palm Beach, FL A land dona-
tion worth $53 million, encompassing 2,256
acres near Lake Okeechobee will help clean
up polluted runoff flowing into local water-
ways.
South Florida Water Management and
Martin County Commissioners unanimously
endorsed a project, this week, which will
play a unique role in Everglades Restoration
efforts.
As part of the land donation, the city of Pa
hokee will benefit with an easement agree-
ment that will allow access to both portions
of the Port Mayaca Cemetery.
South Florida Water Management's Me-
lissa Meeker called the project, where private
and public interests are working together to-
ward a common goal, the "wave of the fu-
ture."
This land donation will set a new stan-
dard in public-private partnerships.
A rare opportunity exists to create a Water
Management Facility, while concurrently do-
nating wetlands, and forested uplands, all at
minimal or no cost to the public.
This project will provide South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) with a
largely completed water treatment and trans-
fer hub/reservoir and adjacent wetland filter
marsh storm water treatment area (STA) as
a land donation.
Under this proposal, Lake Point would
forego its permitted plans for an equestrian/
residential development, and instead provide
the majority of the groundwork for the facil-
ity prior to donating it to the District.
Despite the land cost being in excess of
$53 million, this proposal is made possible
by the owner's potential ability to offset its
costs by excavating and selling the shallow
limestone rock deposits at the site, which,
could be used for various infrastructure and
commercial projects including rebuilding
the Herbert Hoover Dike ("HHD"), the pro-
posed lining of the nearby C-44 canal, and
construction of the C-44 reservoir.
Public-private partnerships involve a col-
laboration of governments and private inves-
tors working toward the common goal of
completing quality public works projects in
a timely manner.
This concept of a public-private partner-
ship, where all parties are receiving benefits
from the partnership, is a stellar example
of how local governments will reach their
environmental and economic conservation
goals in the future.
"This agreement has set a precedent
for future dealings with local governments
around the state," said Lake Point land own-
er, Jud Laird.
"The project demonstrates that partner-
ship is possible, and we can achieve our
conservation goals working together. In the
future, concessions to landowners by local
governments should be matched with these
kinds of collaborations that give back envi-
ronmentally and financially to their commu-
nities. "
When completed, the property, which is
strategically located with connections to the
C-44 canal, L-8 Canal and Lake Okeechobee,


will contain a complex of reservoirs and
storm water treatment areas.
County records indicate the Lake Point
Project will also reduce the amount of fresh
water discharged from Lake Okeechobee
into the St. Lucie River.
Susan Valliere, Martin County Commis-
sion chairwoman praised the project at the
meeting saying, "It is a fabulous project.
It beats 20-acre ranchettes any day in my
opinion."
Martin County Commissioner Patrick
Hayes, who has been active in St. Lucie Riv-
er issues for years, said at the Tuesday meet-
ing that the project was an "extraordinary
opportunity," and complimented the ben-
efits it can provide to the St. Lucie River.
According to records, the storm water
treatment areas are expected to remove 2.6
to 7.7 metric tons of phosphorous per year
from the C-44 Basin.

the value of public-private partnerships."
Laird said. It will set a new standard for
Counties across Florida urging landowners
to give back to their communities."

FARM BILL changes may impact your
eligibility to participate in future disaster
programs without NAP or crop insurance,
producers WILL NOT be eligible to partici-
pate in any of the new permanent disaster
programs included in the new Farm Bill
for 2008. The 2008 Act authorizes funds to
be used to make payments to farmers and
ranchers incurring eligible crop production/
quality losses under the SURE Program, graz-
ing losses under LFP, livestock death losses
under LIP, and losses suffered by producers
of livestock, honeybees, and farm-raised fish
under ELAP. The 2008 Act also authorizes
TAP. To be eligible for SURE, TAP, and ELAP,
producers must meet the Risk Management
Purchase Requirement by purchasing at
least the CAT level of crop insurance for all
insurable crops and/or NAP coverage for
non-insurable crops. To be eligible for LFP,
producers must meet the Risk
Management Purchase Requirement by
purchasing or obtaining coverage for the
grazing land incurring the losses where as-
sistance is being requested, a policy or plan
of insurance under the Federal Crop Insur-
ance Act, including pilot programs such as
the Pasture, Rangeland, Forage Program
(PRF) or NAP coverage by filing the required
paperwork and paying the administrative
fee by the applicable State filing deadline.
The Risk Management Purchase Require-
ment does not apply to LIP.
The LFP program will be available to eli-
gible livestock producers who suffered graz-
ing losses for eligible livestock, because of


Religious columns

How would Jesus do it?
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
As followers of Jesus, we are called to
be "in" the world and not "of" the world.
In terms of our relationship to the world
we live in, Christians are to be totally in the
midst of all that happens in the world while
resisting the menacing power and pull of the
world's enticements.
The challenge we face is for the modern
church to remain modern and not com-
promise its' values or its' missional impact.
Some churches are more "modern" than
Christian. On the other side, too many
of God's people are out of touch with the
Google world in which we live.
One of the greatest struggles in church-
es today arises from efforts to preserve the
past while laboring to minister to the future.
The past shapes our future, but if we focus
only on what has been, we will become a
museum. On the other hand, any faith that
chooses to ignore its' past, sacrifices depth
for charm. The challenge for us is to share
the strength of that old time religion in the
language of today.
We don't need to ask the question:
"Would Jesus want us to work to ease the
burdens for the poor? Or, would Jesus want
us to make new disciples and evangelize?
Or, would Jesus want us to plant new com-
munities of faith?" Of course He would! We
don't need to ask those questions. Jesus
wants us to be "in" the world.


drought on land that is either native or im-
proved pastureland with permanent vegeta-
tive cover or planted to a crop specifically
for providing grazing. The LFP program will
also be available to eligible livestock produc-
ers who suffered grazing losses for eligible
livestock, because of fire on rangeland man-
aged by a Federal agency, if the eligible live-
stock producer is prohibited from grazing
the normal permitted livestock on the man-
aged rangeland.
The LIP program will be available to eli-
gible livestock producers on farms that have
incurred livestock death losses in excess of
normal mortality, because of adverse weath
er, as determined by the Secretary during the
calendar year, including losses because of
hurricanes, floods, blizzards, disease, wild-
fires, extreme heat and extreme cold.
The ELAP program will provide emer-
gency relief to producers of livestock, honey
bees and farmraised fish, because of losses
from adverse weather or other conditions,
such as blizzards and wildfires, as deter-
mined by the Secretary.
Because Congress did not provide a rule-
making exception for these programs, FSA
must first publish a proposed rule seeking
public comment, followed by a final rule.
FSA is working to develop detailed regula-
tions and software for these programs.
If you would like more information to en-
sure your eligibility for the new disaster as-
sistance programs, or to purchase 2010 crop
year grass coverage, please contact your lo-
cal Farm Service Agency office.

But Jesus doesn't want us to be "out of
touch" in the world. That's why we should
not only ask "What Would Jesus Do?, but,
"How would Jesus do it?" "How would Je-
sus do things in 2009?"
Would Jesus be on Facebook? Probably
so. Would Jesus send text messages? I imag-
ine. Would Jesus be on twitter? More than
likely.
If you think about it, Jesus himself mas-
tered the cutting edge technology of first cen-
tury communication. In a population where
at most 5% could read, could Jesus read?
Yes. He read in the temple. In a population
where less that 3% could write, could Jesus
write? Yes. Scriptures tell us He wrote in the
sand. Jesus was up on the latest means of
communication and wants us to be as well.
We need to be if we are to communicate ef-
fectively with today's generation. But Jesus
also warns us about the dangers of getting
caught up in being of the world as we com-
municate.
So if you're on Facebook, or if you are
texting or twittering, are you Facebooking,
texting, or tweating according to the world's
question of "What are You Doing?" or to
other questions like, "What are you Paying
Attention to?" or "For Whom are You Pray-
ing?" or "What can you share with others?"
Jesus wants us to be in the world and
making a difference in the world. We can
only do this by making sure we are not "out
of it" or "of it."

Memorial and Pentecost Sun-
day
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
This coming Sunday we have two great
Special Days, Memorial Day and the Birthday
of the Church, Pentecost Sunday. Memorial
Day is set aside each May as an opportunity
to honor those who have literally sacrificed
their health, life, and future to provide and
protect our freedom. They have died in plac-
es like Bunker Hill, The Alamo, Gettysburg,
Iwo Jima, Normandy, Inchon, Saigon, and
Fallujah. It is also important to remember
how much America's civilian population
willingly sacrificed comfort and privileges
for the sake of the war effort, especially dur-
ing the Revolutionary and Civil Wars, and
World War II. I'm not sure we comfortable
Americans at home are willing to pay this
price anymore.
Sacrifice is critical for anything important
in life. Sacrifice is at the heart of Christianity.
This Sunday we celebrate the Beginning of


The Christian Church on the first Pentecost
after Christ's Resurrection and Ascention.
God sacrificed His own Son for the sake of
our forgiveness. Jesus purchased the church
with His own blood. Thousands of Chris-
tians in the early days of the church sacri-
ficed their all to follow Jesus. Countless mar-
tyrs have suffered beyond comprehension
down through the centuries, and staggering
numbers continue to suffer and die today in
oppressive totalitarian and Islamic nations.
As we honor fallen heroes and faithful
Christians this coming Sunday, let's commit
ourselves to being selfless, sacrificial people
who are willing to serve however we are
needed. Let's take seriously our call to fol-
low Jesus by dying to self (Mark 8:34; Gala-
tians 2:20). Lets be generous with God, His
Church, and others because we have first
given our heart fully to God. This Sunday we
are have a "Happy Birthday Church" celebra-
tion with a Pitch-In Fellowship Dinner fol-
lowing our Morning Worship at 12:15 p.m.
All are invited to attend. My message this
Sunday at 11 a.m. is "My Dream Church".
To continue Abraham Lincoln's thought
at Gettysburg, "It is for us, the living, to be
dedicated to the unfinished work before us."
It's not about us.

Superintendent's Budget update


The legislature has finally come up with
a proposed budget for 2009-2010. This bud-
get reflects an overall 9.1% reduction in rev-
enues for the Hendry County School District
for this upcoming school year. This is far
better than the 18% reduction the Commis-
sioner of Education had told us to prepare
for; however, the 9.1% includes $2,300,000
of Federal stimulus money that has finally
been approved.
One thing the legislature is not taking
into consideration is that during the 2008-
2009 school year the legislature has already
held back 3.8% of our money. If you take this
into consideration, the 2009-2010 budget is
actually a 12.9% reduction in revenue from
where we started in July of 08-09.
The Federal stimulus money for the State
of Florida has been approved. It will help not
only us, but every District in the state. We
must, however, not forget that the budget
stabilization portion of the stimulus money
is a one year deal. This means that we must
plan for how we will continue to operate
when this stimulus money goes away.
This year we have transferred approxi-
mately 3.4 million dollars from capital outlay
funds, which are used to buy school buses
and maintain our school buildings, into the
general fund. This money is being used to
help pay salaries and benefits. We cannot
continue to do this on a long term basis and
be able to adequately maintain our facili-
ties.
We sincerely appreciate the efforts of all
District employees in helping us to cut costs
wherever we can. Through the month of
March, thanks to your efforts, we have re-
duced our electricity cost by $451,000. Our


cost for substitutes is down thanks to teach-
ers volunteering to fill in for other teachers
who are absent. There are a host of other
examples of ways people have changed the
way they do things that have saved money.
We have had to make some very difficult
decisions which were shared in our first
budget cutting update message. All of these
efforts have helped.
Hopefully, the economy will turn around
and things will get better. Until then, we will
have to continue to work together to find ad-
ditional ways to cut costs.
I appreciate the work you have all done
in keeping focused on providing a positive
school environment and a high quality edu-
cation for our students. I know this has been
a difficult year, and all of you have stepped
up to the plate and done an excellent job.
With only a few weeks remaining in this
school year, please keep up the good work.
Our country, state and county have been
through difficult times before, and just as in
the past things will get better.
Florida Statutes require the School Dis-
trict to maintain a 3% balance in the general
fund. When I was sworn in on November
19, 2008, our fund balance was 2.09%. In
the past several years we have experienced
decreasing enrollments, increased operating
costs, and decreased funding from state and
local revenue sources. The law now man-
dates that school districts maintain a 3% fund
balance and a plan to maintain that balance.
If the state, local and national economy does
not turn around by next year, the District will
be forced to make additional difficult deci-
sions in an effort to further reduce cost.

IT'S A NEW BEGINNING FOR CHRYSLER CORP!
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 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 by today to Arrigo and see all of the great vehicles we have to offer and to take advantage of historically low
pricing and financing!

ceived award pins in the different 4-H proj-
ect areas from cooking and arts and crafts
to steer, swine and dairy goats. Moreover,
Junior and Senior 4-H members received
certificates and premium for placing in the


top two in the LaBelle Youth Livestock Show

areas. Furthermore, Junior and Senior 4-H
members received certificates for placing

vice and dedication to the 4-H program from
one year to thirty two years of service. Mrs.


Michelle Rayburn was awarded the Out-
standing Leader Award after receiving let-
ters of recommendation from her 4-H club
members. This is Mrs. Rayburn's first year

Pork Pride 4-H Club. Several 4-H members
received special recognition for their accom-
plishments in 4-H: Ryley Bowen received the
Outstanding Junior 4-H Award plaque with
Micah Murphy achieving the Outstanding


Intermediate 4-H Award plaque and Andy

The Hendry County 4-H Office would like
to express their appreciation to the parents,
leaders, and volunteers who attended the
Awards Banquet in support of the 4-H pro-

Local Student selected to attend Leadership Conference


Kagni Adkins, a student at Clewiston High
School, had been selected to attend the 2009
Congressional Student Leadership Confer-
ence, CSI: Forensic Science, sponsored by
LeadAmerica. The CSLC is a college ac-
credited invitational leadership program for
academically talented and promising young
leaders from across the United States and
internationally. Kagni Adkins will join other
exceptional high school students with re-
cords of academic achievement and extra-
curricular or community involvement who
are invited to participate.
The CSLC CSI: Forensic Science is a 10-day
leadership program in which students learn
how evidence is collected and processed.
In a hands-on learning environment, Kagni
Adkins and fellow students will conduct a
full analysis of a crime scene, including 3-D
computer generated facial reconstruction,
ballistics, fiber and blood slatter analysis,
fingerprinting, DNA analysis, medical foren-
sics, document analysis and more.
The CSLC CIS: Forensic Science is held
at John Hopkins University in Washington,
D.C. Students meet forensic experts, crime
scene specialists, government agents and
other professionals, engage in laboratory
exercise and participate in interactive lead-
ership workshops.
"I am hoping to use the knowledge that I
gain from this experience to help me decide
my future career. I also hope that it will help
me in my future college admissions, and
scholarships. I have a 3.5 g.p.a. and I try my


best to succeed with my education."
"Today, more than ever, youth leadership
education is essential," says Chris M. Salam-
one, Esq., Founder and Executive Director of
LeadAmerica. "Leadership can make impor-
tant differences in the lives of teenagers in
their academic and personal performance,
in their acceptance to the college of their
choice, and in their level of focus, passion
and purpose. It is the key to what they do
with their lives and how well they do it.
I cannot think of a time in history during
which leadership was more imperative."
"Over the past 20 years, I have had the
privilege of seeing more than 70,000 excep-
tional students from over 51 countries learn
first-hand about leadership and explore its
role in a variety of educational disciplines.
It's my sincere hope that LeadAmerica will
give young leaders the skills to help them
along the road toward a successful and re-
warding life of leadership."
LeadAmerica is the nation's premiere
youth leadership organization. With a com-
mitment to providing quality leadership
education, LeadAmerica inspires and em-
powers young people to achieve their full
potential and instills a sense of purpose,
integrity and personal responsibility. Each
of its high school conferences is college
accredited and its programs are approved
activities of the National Association of
Secondary School Principals. LeadAmerica
sponsors the Congressional Student Leader-
ship Conference for high school students,


the National Junior Leaders Conference for
middle and junior high school students, and
Ambassadors Abroad international study
programs in China, Australia, Costa Rica and
Europe.

Arrest Report


GAINESVILLE, Fla.-Florida Farm Bureau
Federation continues to receive reports of
crop damage in Central and South Florida
and in the Panhandle, and concern over
potential crop disasters is increasing. The
state's largest general agricultural organi-
zation noted parts of Florida have received
more than 20 inches of rain this week.
Some farmers in the Jackson County
area of west Florida are reporting dam-
age to cotton and corn fields due to high
winds. Producers in the Hastings area fear
losses to potatoes, cabbages, cantaloupe
and other fresh vegetables crops which
are nearing harvest could run into the
millions of dollars. Fields in the Hastings
area are flooded, delaying harvesting.
Further south, farmers in the Everglades
Agricultural Area are reporting severe lo-
calized damage resulting from rain and hail
to some sweet corn fields; some fields that
were one week from harvest have incurred
50 percent or more losses in yield.
Federation officials advised farmers
who sustain crop damage to contact the
USDA Farm Service Agency in their coun-
ties, document damage by taking photo-


graphs and prepare to file a claim, if they
have crop insurance.
"We also recommend they contact dis-
trict offices of their congressional represen-
tatives and the offices of Sen. Bill Nelson
and Mel Martinez," said Pat Cockrell, ex-
ecutive assistant to the president.
In order for farmers to receive federal
disaster assistance, the Florida Commis-
sioner of Agriculture and Gov. Charlie Crist
must declare a disaster and request the
Secretary of the United States Department
of Agriculture to take action. The new farm
bill sets up a disaster program aimed at
making a pool of dollars available for disas-
ter assistance. Previously, disaster declara-
tions required congressional action.
The Florida Farm Bureau Federation is
the state's largest general-interest agricul-
tural association with about 138,000 mem-
ber-families statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an indepen-
dent, nonprofit agricultural organization.
More information about Florida Farm Bu-
reau is available on the organization's Web
site, http://FloridaFarmBureau.org.

Be a Hero for the



American Red Cross


INI/Ashley Smith
VFW honors veterans
Clewiston residents bowed their heads in prayer for the veterans who died
for our freedom and country.


The Lakeside Communities' Service
Center for the American Red Cross, which
serves residents in Glades, Hendry and west-
ern Palm Beach counties, recently kicked off
its community-wide "Heroes Campaign."
The six-week fundraising and awareness
initiative encourages individuals, businesses
and schools to commit to raising or do-
nating $1,000 by June 5. All of the money
raised during the third annual campaign will
benefit the array of services offered by the
local American Red Cross Chapter, includ-
ing disaster prevention, preparedness and
response.
Numerous supporters of the organization
have already stepped up to the challenge, in-
cluding Clewiston Fire Department; Clewis-
ton Marathon Station; Dixie Fried Chicken;
Git-n-Split Clewiston; Iglesia De Dios Pente-
costal Clewiston; Palm Beach County Sher-
iffs Office Explorers #611; and Red Hearts
Youth.
"People may not be natural-born heroes,
but they can easily become Heroes for the
American Red Cross," said Larry Casey, CEO
of the Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter.


"We've set a goal this year to raise $200,000,
which will support our long-standing mis-
sion of responding to emergencies, provid-
ing relief to victims of disaster, and teaching
individuals how to prevent and prepare for
emergencies."
For more information on becoming a
HERO, call the American Red Cross Lakeside
Communities' Service Center at 863-902-
1220, or visit www.redcross-pbc.org/glades.
About the American Red Cross

Greater Palm Beach Area Chapter, which
includes Glades, Hendry, Okeechobee and Palm
Beach Counties, has provided relief to victims of
disasters at home and abroad, teaches lifesav-
ing skills, and supports military members and
families. The American Red Cross, a charity and
not a government agency, depends on voluntary
contributions of time and money to perform its
humanitarian mission. To learn more about the
work of the Red Cross, or to make a donation,

Puzzle
Continued From Page 1
lions in recent years and the South Florida
region itself has posted numbers that many
private companies would envy.
The problem was that the company
wasn't initially interested in moving to
Clewiston.
The numbers just weren't there.
So Mr. Khan and Mr. Salkey's job was a
bit more difficult.
Of course, being that the Tractor Supply
Store at the same plaza posted some of the
best numbers regionally for the company,


Silver
Continued From Page 1


and the fact that a large business like Wal-
Mart is thriving in what many might consider
a small city, Mr. Khan had an easier argu-
ment to make. He pointed to the strength
of the shopping dollar as it extends from
Glades County, to LaBelle, to Clewiston and
areas of Palm Beach.
Basically, Mr. Khan said, the lake is split
in half and most residents in the bottom half
gravitate toward Clewiston, while residents
north shop in Okeechobee.
The numbers now existed.
The fact that Goodwill uses most of its
revenues for helping disadvantaged citizens
re-enter the workforce was a perfect fit for
the area, which has dealt with high unem-
ployment rates in the past.

Instead, they should use this time to
study something they normally would not
be able to, said the manager.
The funding makes it possible. The pro-


And that's where the career and services cess is simple:

well as anyone else without a job.
Having to rely on unemployment bene-
fits while they wait out the sagging job mar-
ket, the unemployed should not become
the disenfranchised, too, said Ms. Meeler.
"I like to be positive," she said "There's
always a silver lining."


administration, electrical and many other
occupations.
The training is offered at various colleges,
including Edison College and Palm Beach
Community College, and takes anywhere
from one to two years to complete.
The center provides the medical field


One of the more positive points is that
the new store will be employing upwards
of 20. While much is talked about in attract-
ing industrial businesses to employ similar
numbers of people, with work on that front
stalled locally, Goodwill will be hiring that
many in the course of the next few weeks.
Locals will be able to apply for a job dur-
ing a career fair scheduled to be held at the
Clewiston Inn June 12 and 19, from 9:30
a.m. to 4:30 p.m. both days.
With Goodwill entering the fray, and
most of the retail spaces at the plaza leased,
the partnership turns toward filling that last
piece of the puzzle: a 38,000 sq. ft. space.
The owners of the plaza aren't divulging
much, but said that a deal they had been


working on -- postponed because of the an-
nouncement of the sale of U.S. Sugar to the
state is moving forward again.
Mr. Khan hopes to announce his formal
plans soon.
But having a new store in Clewiston is at
least one large step in seeing the plaza fully
back in action. He enjoys reporting that a
store is opening, rather than closing, during
the tough economic times.
"Who wants to have a Goodwill?" Mr.
Khan believes was the old way of thinking.
"Now, a Goodwill is better than a Circuit
City."

hindered by the effects of the recession, and
where the center has experienced the most
success in job placement.
"LPNs and anyone that we've put through
the program find jobs immediately," said
April White, another of the center's career
managers.


There is no set quota for capacity, and
the center officials hope to service as many
people as are interested in participating.
Doing something to better yourself is
better than not doing anything at all, they
agree.
"By the time they're finished, hopefully


But there are plenty of options for study, the economy will be up and they can jump


and maybe things will look up again, the
managers said.
Response for this kind of help has been
overwhelmingly positive at some of the
center's other branches throughout South
Florida. In Fort Myers, response was so great
that local employees shuttled to the coast to


into their occupation," said Ms. White.

dry and Glades counties is located at 215 S.
