Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Clewiston
city commissioners on Tuesday
voted to begin negotiations with
Richard Reade, of Sanford, Fla.,
for the position of city manager.
Mr. Reade was one of two final-
ists vying for the position, along
with Georgia resident Steve
McKown.
In the end, commissioners
said it was Mr. Reade's previous
experience as a city manager, as
well as his familiarity with Flor-
ida government, that gave him
the edge over Mr. McKown. The
mayor, city attorney, and interim
city manager, Don Gutshall, are
expected to meet this week to
schedule contract negotiations
with Mr. Reade. The contract is
expected to be considered for
final approval by or before the
commission's next scheduled
meeting on July 20.
In their deliberations, com-
missioners said both finalists
"stood head and shoulders"
above the 40-plus applicants
who applied for the job. The
special meeting was called af-
ter the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment and city hall were able to
verify the educational and crimi-
nal backgrounds of the two can-
didates.
In both cases, the screenings
did not uncover any red flags
and with those checks out of the
way, commissioners were able
to compare their rankings. "It's
a tough decision we have to-
night," said Commissioner Julio


Ni/Asnmey mann
A beautiful display of fireworks was set for all of Clewiston's
residents to admire at Sugarland Park this past Saturday.


Jail expansion under way


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
Tuesday morning Hendry
County officials gathered to mark
the first tangible steps toward the
long-awaited jail expansion.
Located on Lee Street behind
the existing jail, the free-standing


expansion will provide an addi-
tional 96 beds for inmates. A ba-
sic single story steel building will
envelope the cells, which will be
constructed of 1/4 inch steel plate.
A maintenance walkway will be lo-
cated inside the facility, surround-
See Jail Page 19


Clewiston selects


Richard Reade


for city manager


Rodriguez. "I'm leaning toward
McKowan just because of his
maturity. I think he's ready for
the job."
The mayor disagreed.
"The way they do business in
Georgia is different from the way
we do business in Florida," ex-
plained Mayor Mali Chamness,
adding that both candidates had
strong backgrounds, and both
were sufficiently qualified for the
job. "Richard Reade has already
hit the ground running. The ini-
tiative he's taken to meet with
the community is commend-
able."
Commissioner Jimmy Pitt-
man was the only member of
the board who did not list Mr.
Reade among his top two selec-
tions.
According to him, while Mr.
Reade's credentials and back-
grounds were impressive, Mr.
Reade reportedly signaled that
he did not intend on staying in
Clewiston for a very long time.
"He did all but tell me," said
Commissioner Pittman. "It was
the only reason he didn't make
my list. I don't know if I want to
go through this in another three
years."
The decision went to a vote,
with the commissioners voting
in favor of selecting Mr. Reade
as the city's next city manager.
If contract negotiations are suc-
cessful, Mr. Reade will be filling
the position left vacant by Wen-
dell Johnson, who retired earlier
this year.

Pahokee Blue Devils will participate F



in upcoming Nike 7-on-7 competition eC-Iz

Tournament will be held
from July 15-17 in
Beaverton, Ore.


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The Pahokee Blue Devils will
be taking their skills center stage to Oregon
next week.
With this year's Nike 70N national 7-on-7
competition to be held from July 15-17 in
Beaverton, Ore., Pahokee knows what's on
the line.
As a matter of fact, they actually have
some unfinished business to take care of.
After last year's Nike 70N regional tour-
nament, which ended in a 22-21 loss to
Miami-Booker T. Washington on July 12,
2008, the Blue Devils were thoroughly disap-
pointed.
According to published reports, Pahokee
and Booker T. Washington were embroiled
in a melee on that day, thus disqualifying
both teams from last year's national cham-
pionship.
The brawl reportedly ended with a knee
injury to Booker T. Washington head coach
Earl Tillman.
Both teams later declined their invitations
to compete in last year's adidas 7-on-7 na-
tional championship.
Booker T. Washington won the adidas
7-on-7 title game, while Pahokee was the
runner-up.
With all that being said, Pahokee head
coach Blaze Thompson simply wants to put
it behind him and move on.
"We don't back down on a challenge,
but our goal is to win on the field and play
hard between the whistles and with integ-
rity," Thompson said.
"We're not going to dwell on the nega-
tive, but we know that everyone's gunning
for us."
That includes Miami-Northwestern, one
of eight teams that will be in competition
with Pahokee at this year's Nike 70N tour-
nament.
Despite Pahokee's five Class 2B state
championships in the past six years, in addi-
tion to the adidas 7-on-7 national champion-
ship and a No. 6 USA Today final national
ranking two years ago, Thompson believes
his team still doesn't get much respect out-
side of Palm Beach County.
And that perception alone is what makes
Thompson stop just short of being irate.
"Teams think that we don't belong in
the national rankings because we're a small
school," Thompson said.
"But we know that we've earned the
right to be talked about when it comes to
being in the conversation of the elite teams
in the nation."
Here's a list of the Pahokee players who'll
be flying to Oregon next week:
Zachary Allen
Rantavious Atkins


INI/Naji Tobias
Pahokee Blue Devils junior quarterback Emmanuel Perez will be one of 20 play-
ers who'll be flying to Oregon on Wednesday, July 15.

Dennis Hall
Othniel Harvey
Corey Hill
De'Joshua Johnson
Merill Noel
Jacquay Perdue
Emmanuel Perez
Fred Pickett
Earnquavion Robinson
Norris White
Shaquille White
Kaalum Williams
Nathan Wood
Pahokee will have an opportunity to win
its second 7-on-7 national championship in
three years.
With the title, it likely won't be a surprise
if the Blue Devils are nationally ranked when
the 2009 season officially begins.
"We're gonna compete at the highest lev
el and have fun out there," Pahokee wideout


Dennis Hall said.
"We're not just coming to compete, but
we're gonna take the trophy home back to
Pahokee."
Thompson couldn't agree more with
Hall's statement.
"We get our motivation from people
doubting us," Thompson said.
"Anybody can get it."
Notes: There is no regional Nike 70N
competition this year, according to Thomp-
son.
Nike, the official sponsor of the Pahokee
Blue Devils, is reportedly paying all of the
expenses that come with this cross-country
trip.

HRMC relocates its


outpatient registration

r-r ff__ I I


Training program funded


for Glades General


The hospital's outpatient registration
planned emergency room.
By Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center has re-
located its Outpatient Registration Depart-
ment. The outpatient registration area is
now located at the front entrance of the hos-
pital (first door on the left).
Hospital administration has been plan-
ning this move for some time. With the
construction of the new emergency room


Submitted photo/HRMC
has been moved to make room for a

right around the corner, volume in this de-
partment, which was formally located near
the back of the hospital, would have been
far too congested. According to Craig Cud-
worth, CEO of Hendry Regional, "The move
also greatly improves service and conve-
nience to the patient. The lobby provides
a larger seating area, and patients can now
park in the front of the hospital."


BELLE GLADE Workforce Alliance,
who earlier in the year awarded Glades
General Hospital a $27,500 grant for work-
force training, is pleased to announce that
44 nursing staff have completed the pro-
gram and have been awarded advanced
certifications.
The training program was designed to
help the nursing staff prepare for the use
of greater technology when the hospital
transitions into its modern new facility, the
Lakeside Medical Center, later this year.
Workforce Alliance's Employed Worker
Training Program is a funding source that
is available to eligible businesses seeking
to improve the skills and qualifications of
their current employees.
The recent program with Glades Gen-
eral Hospital provided training for 21 staff
members to earn Healthcare Certification
Level One and for 21 additional staff to at-
tain Level Two Certification.
Another four employees completed
training to become on-staff training profes-
sionals.
As a result of the training, the participat-
ing employees increased their skills and
many became eligible for higher level posi-


Workforce Alliance's total Employed
Worker Training program during the past
fiscal year awarded $546,994 in training
grants to a total of nineteen Palm Beach
County employers.
This resulted in job-related training for
over 450 employees and an overall eco-
nomic investment in the County of over
$1.8 million, including the $1.3 million in
contributions made by the businesses.
Businesses seeking information on the
Employed Worker Training program and
how it may benefit their business may con-
tact Gerry Genovese, Director of Business
Services at Workforce Alliance, 561-340-

cluding access to local employment infor-
mation, to all employers and job seekers in

HIN1-Flu in



Glades County

Glades County The Glades and
Hendry County Health Departments were
contacted in regards to four detainees at
a detention center within Glades County
that became ill with influenza-like-illness
(ILI) on June 27, 2009.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments recommended the follow-
ing: Immediate isolation and quarantine
of all detainees within their housing unit
Any transport or movement of detainees
be halted. Staffing assignments remain
the same. Anti-virals to all contacts of the
symptomatic detainees.
Two samples were sent to the State
Lab and were confirmed this morning
for the H1N1 virus. Two other samples
are still pending results from a private lab.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments will continue to closely
monitor the situation.
The Glades and Hendry County Health
Departments also issued these recom-
mendations:
*Avoid close contact with people who
are coughing or seem to be ill.
If you get sick with flu-like symptoms,
stay home and limit contact with others.
*Wash hands frequently (for at least
20-30 seconds) with soap & warm water
to lessen the spread of any respiratory
illnesses. Wash in between your fingers,
your finger nails, your wrists and fore-
arms.

A Walk in the Past: The Battle of Horseshoe Bend


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The ragged lines of marching Tennes-
see volunteers gripped their rifles tightly as
cold fear coiled around their bodies and
squeezed until beads of perspiration flowed
freely. Brown, stoic faced comrades from the
Creek and Cherokee Nations trotted past to
position themselves along the left and right
flanks of the volunteer's advancing lines, so
the enemy would have no escape route.
A single shot echoed into thousands as
fire and smoke belched from the blazing
barrels of friend and foe. Hours later the
triumphing voices of the American victors
merged with the despairing cries of the van-
quished Red Sticks.
This fictitious story reflects the Battle of
Horseshoe Bend that broke the resistance of
the Red Sticks. It is time to "Take a Walk in
The Past" and read about the final hours of
the Creek Red Sticks.
The Creek Civil War began in the Creek
Confederacy, which was divided into two
factions, the Red Sticks and the White Sticks.
Red Sticks favored war and Native Ameri
canism, void of white encroachment and
culture. White Sticks favored integrating into
the white culture on peaceful terms. These
ideologies were birthed and nurtured by
white intrusion on Creek lands.
The friction caused by these two ideolo-
gies led to a vicious war that was escalated
when Red Sticks attacked Ft. Mims in 1813,
and massacred most of the forts inhabitants.
Many of the settlers that died at Ft. Mims
were Creek White Sticks, who had sought
refuge in the fort.
The massacre sent a wave of fear through
the frontier and the Southeast. White settlers
and Creek White Sticks fled their homes on
the frontier to seek shelter in forts and safer
territories. The United States reacted to the
Ft. Mims massacre by declaring war on the
Red Sticks.
The states and territories in the Southeast
requested U.S. Army troops, but there were
few to spare because the United States was
engaged in a war with England. The South-
east was forced to raise an independent
army of volunteers to deal with its chilling
emergency.
Volunteer militias were called up in the
Southeast that comprised:
The Georgia Territory, which estab-
lished a line of forts along its western bor-
ders to act as a buffer and a militia army with
over 20,000 men, plus 2,000 regular troops
and 400 friendly Creeks.
The Mississippi Territory that
formed a small militia of 1,000 men, which,
included infantry, local militia and Choctaw
Indians.
The state of Tennessee pulled an
army of 2,500 volunteers from west Tennes-
see and placed it under the command of
Colonel Andrew Jackson. Another volunteer
army of 2,500 was formed in east Tennessee
and placed under the command of Major
General William Cocke.
Indian Agent, Benjamin Hawkens,
organized friendly Creeks under the com-
mand of Major William McIntosh. The
Cherokee Nation sent 200 Cherokees under
the command of Major Ridge. These com-


bined Indian armies fought under white mi-
litias and are noted for their services in the
Tennessee militia that was commanded by
Colonel Andrew Jackson.
The Southeast now had ample manpow-
er to crush the Red Sticks, whose numbers
historians believe never exceeded 4,000.
However, the numerous American armies
were under separate commanders from dif-
ferent territories that operated independent-
ly of one another. This problem weakened
the combat effectiveness of the American's
superior forces.
The American strategy was to attack the
Red Sticks' scared Holy Ground where the
larger populations of Red Sticks lived. The
plan's logistics required forts, roads and
supply lines because the Red Sticks' main
villages were deep within the Alabama wil-
derness
These logistical demands were chal-
lenging to the American commanders, but
the most demanding task they faced was
time. Time was of essence because the
armies consisted mainly of volunteer militia,
whose enlistments were from two to three
months.
Armies of volunteers simply melted away
at the end of their 60 or 90 day service, leav-
ing bewildered commanders with ghost
armies.
Colonel Jackson became a very frustrated
commander in the early months of the Creek
War, when most of his west Tennessee mi-
litia returned home after their 90-day enlist-
ment ended. His army of several thousand
was reduced to a mere 103 soldiers, which
stalled his military objectives until additional
troops could be brought in. The east Tennes-
see militia fared worst when all of William
Cocke's army went home.
The west and east Tennessee militias
were combined under Jackson and became
the main military force in the Creek War.
Jackson resolved the volunteer enlistment
problem by extending the period from three
months to six months. He then began his
campaign against the Red Sticks in earnest,
building roads and forts as he marched to
the heart of Upper Creek homeland.
Numerous engagements and battles
were fought, but the decisive battle that
ended Red Stick resistance was the "Battle
of Horseshoe Bend." Jackson's force num-
bered 3,000 troops and 600 Cherokee and
Lower Creek allies. The Red Sticks were at-
tacked in the center by the Tennessee militia
and hit on the left and right flanks by Indian
allies. The Red Sticks took terrible losses.
The war cost the Red Sticks dearly in lives
and land. The Treaty of Fort Jackson forced
the Indians to cede 23 million acres to the
United States. Most of this land would later
become the state of Alabama. Some of the
lands belonging to the Cherokees and other
Indians that aided the Americans were in-
cluded in the treaty.
Davy Crockett, the legendary figure who
is remembered for his heroic death at the
Alamo, volunteered as a scout for the Ten-
nessee militia during the Creek War. During
his enlistment, he located a large Red Stick
village and reported the information to Jack-
son's staff. Approximately 500 soldiers were
dispatched to the village, which was a three-
day trip. They attacked the village savagely


and vengefully gave no quarter.
The army carried few supplies on their
three-day march and ran out of provisions.
They were forced to forage for food in the
destroyed Indian village.
Potatoes were found stored in a cellar be-
neath below a large cabin, where many of
the Indians had made a last stand. The cabin
had been set on fire, and many of the Indi-
ans burned in the raging flames. Fat from the
burning bodies melted and collected on the
potatoes. The soldiers were forced to eat the
potatoes or starve.
Davy Crockett was angered by soldiers'
brutal behavior and reported their actions.
He became so disgusted with the barbaric


w
ba
pe
w(
gr


%0


actions of the army's soldiery that he re-
signed and went home.
Crockett never forgave Jackson for
the actions of his armies. In Congress, he
fought the Jackson administration and voted
against the Indian Removal Act. Crockett lost
his seat in Congress in 1831 because he had
angered Jackson.
He later won again in 1833 and said, "I
bark at no man's bid. I will never come and
go, and fetch and carry, at the whistle of the
great man in the White House no matter
who he is."
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
Andrew Jackson invades Spanish Florida.

Obama versus Washington
and Lincoln
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Todaywhen we continue to hear the pres-
ent administration talk about "Change" and
with the "stimulus package" and "bail-outs"
I would like to make a few observations.
While the President lauds Presidents
Washington and Lincoln, in practice he
completely disagrees with their philosophies
that are on record.
President Obama shows weakness in the
face of threats from North Korea and Iran.
He is borrowing from our enemies, some
foreign governments, and thus from future
generations of Americans, for the benefit of
the here and now.
His arrogance in the face of unprecedent-
ed deficits in our national debt and continual
advocacy to spend, spend, spend and tax,
tax, tax, is abhorrent.
Listen to these words of wisdom of two
of America' great Presidents and see how
these words measure up to the philosophies
and policies of the present administration.
President Washington made the follow-
ing comments: "It has been, very properly,
the policy of our government to cultivate
peace. But in the contemplating the possibil-
ity of our being driven to unqualified war, it
will be wise to anticipate that, frequently, the
most effective way to defend is to attack.
"Americans will fight for their liberties
and prosperity. God can get along without
America, but America cannot get along
without God. The Blessings and protec-
tion of Heaven are at all times necessary,
but especially so in times of public distress
and change. Government is not reason, it if
force! Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and
a fearful master."
Now these comments from President
Lincoln: "You cannot bring about prosperity
by discouraging thrift.
"You cannot help small men by tearing
down big men. You cannot strengthen the
weak by weakening the strong. You can-
not lift the wage earner by pulling down
the wage payer. You cannot help the poor
man by destroying the rich. You cannot keep
out of trouble by spending more that your
income. You cannot further the brotherhood
of man by inciting class hatred. You cannot
establish security by borrowed money. You
cannot build character and courage by tak-
ing away man's initiative and independence.
You cannot help men permanently by doing
for them what they could and should do for
themselves."

Find Goliath; Look for closed
minds!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
In one area, we had a candidate for min-
istry who stuttered.
He had been rejected by his home re-
gion but still felt called to ministry. We had
an out-of-the-way Church of faithful people
where nobody wanted to serve.
When asked, they were glad to consider


him and he was glad to go.
They told us that once you got used to
listening to him, he really had something to
say!
They were pleased and he was fulfilled.
He taught those who would listen; it was
the message and not the messenger that
counted.
Jesus had the same problem. He went
to His home town and people questioned
"Where did this man get these things?"...
(Mark 6:lff).
They asked about his relatives and who
He was, "and don't we know His family?
"Mark adds "...they took offense at Him
(v.3)." The result was that His ministry
was limited; only a few cures "and He was
amazed at their lack of faith(v.6)."
It's been that way ever since; we choose
good or bad leaders not because of what
they do or say but because we like or dislike
them. We go to church and don't listen with
a critical ear because "it's our Church"; not
because of what is being taught.
We reject ideas without thinking about
them because they come from a source that
we don't like. One community had an excel-
lent physician but he was a bit too much "to
the point" for some of his patients.
They chose another physician because
they felt he was "nicer"; not because he was
good at healing.
We would talk about our teachers in
school; whether they were "nice" or "hard"
or "difficult" or "fun." It had nothing to do
with learning or teaching; the genius was
one who could be both "nice" and teach
too.
When I taught in college, one of my stu-
dents said "You're a nice guy but your tests
are hard."
I told him that I was responsible to see
that something was learned and that I didn't
think the tests were unfairly hard.
He shot back "But you're an educated
man!" I asked him how he thought one gets
to be "educated?"
No answer!
It's a good time in to look at what people
share; not whether we like them or not, or if
they are popular or unpopular.
David slays Goliath not because he faces
a warrior dressed as a warrior and prepared
for the usual means of combat; but because
he has honed skills as a shepherd that have
saved the lives of his sheep and knows how
to be deadly accurate at a distance.
He asks God to be with him, God was
with him; Goliath couldn't imagine another
outcome to the contest between the shep-
herd boy and the warrior; he knew it all.
Listen and learn; watch for what is to be
gained even from those we don't always
like, those who are not considered.
Then see God at work and miracles hap-
pening.

Priceless Scribbles
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I came across a story that was published
years ago in the Christian Reader about a fa-
ther who touched his children's lives in an
unexpected, yet special way.
As his father walked into the living room,
the boy noticed that his younger brother,


John, began to cower.
The older boy sensed that John had done
something wrong, and then he saw it. Little
John had opened their father's brand new
hymnal and scribbled all over the first page
with a pen.
Staring at their father fearfully, both broth-
ers waited for John's punishment.
Their father picked up his prized hym-
nal, looked at it carefully and then sat down
without saying a word.
Books were precious to him, and the
boys expected the worse.
What the father did next surprised them
both.
Instead of punishing or scolding John,
the father took the pen from the little boy's
hand, and wrote alongside the scribbles
that John had made: "John's work, 1959,
age 2. How many times have I looked into
your beautiful face and into your warm, alert
eyes looking up at me and thanked God for
the one who has now scribbled in my new
hymnal. You have made the book sacred, as
have your brother and sister to so much of
my life."
The author of the story, now an adult,
goes on to say how that hymnal became
a treasured family possession, how it was
tangible proof that their parents loved them,
how it taught the lesson that what really
matters is people, not objects; patience, not
judgment; love, not anger.
I've read that there are four elements we
need in our childhood to teach us such les-
sons and allow us to experience joy as an
adult. The first element is unconditional love
from at least one adult in our lives.
This unconditional love gives us self
esteem and encourages us to see the world
as a friendly place. The second element is
discovering our passions through play. Most
of us in our unstructured play time discover
where our true talents and passions lay.
Some children take joy in telling stories,
or building backyard forts, or taking the
toaster apart. These early play times are a
great indicator of that child's later interests.
The third element involves practicing and
mastering these interests, talents, and pas-
sions.
This honing and mastering of particular
skills increases a child's self-confidence and
makes them less afraid to try new things.
And finally, a child needs to experience posi-
tive recognition from others.
Children learn what they live. As the say-
ing goes, "If children live with approval, they
learn to like themselves. If children live with
acceptance and friendship, they learn to love
the world."
Wouldn't it be wonderful if every child
could experience each of those four ele-
ments? Wouldn't it be wonderful if every
adult could, too? Wouldn't it be wonderful if
we could all learn to like ourselves and love
the world?

New Season of SFWMD, Audubon Bird-Watching Tours


District, Hendry-Glades
Audubon continue
successful partnership

An Everglades restoration project just
south of Lake Okeechobee continues to live
up to its reputation as a national bird-watch-
ing location.
June marks the beginning of another
season of partnership between the South
Florida Water Management District (SF-
WMD) and the Hendry-Glades Audubon,
whose experts lead public birding tours at
the District-managed Stormwater Treatment
Area 5 (STA-5) in Hendry County. Most tours
are guided by Audubon's Margaret England,
who recently received the District's first
Ambassador Award to recognize her com-
munity service and commitment to assist
the District and provide increased access to
public lands.
"The diversity of species at STA-5 is truly
breathtaking, and the partnership with the
Hendry-Glades Audubon is a significant
public service," said SFWMD Executive Di-
rector Carol Ann Wehle. "These treatment
wetlands are effective at cleaning water
flowing into the River of Grass and, as an
added benefit, have also become wildlife
havens that showcase the environmental
and economic significance of Everglades
restoration."
Birding, a national pastime, is big busi-
ness, with 48 million people observing birds
both around the home and through vaca-
tion travel. A 2001 report by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service concluded that nation-
wide birding generated $32 billion in retail
sales and created 863,406 jobs.
Non-consumptive bird use (non-hunting
activities) supported more than 19,000 jobs
in Florida in 2006, and wildlife viewing ac-
tivities generated more than $3 billion state-


wide that year, according to a state report, ter-cleaning workhorses of Everglades resto- phosphorus that would have otherwise

Treatment Areas have proven to be the wa- tained more than 1,000 metric tons of total for water quality improvements, which
also creates an attractive habitat for wad-
ing birds. The District has taken steps to en-
sure the public has access at these sites for
spectacular wildlife viewing as well as duck
hunting, enhanced at STA-5 by construction
of a waterfowl watching/hunting platform
for disabled veterans and residents alike.
The District is committed to increasing
recreational access to District lands, while
continuing to manage them effectively to
meet its environmental restoration, water
supply, water quality and flood control mis-
sions. For more information on recreational
opportunities, please visit www.sfwmd.gov/
recreation. For more information on Florida
bird watching, visit the Great Florida Birding
Trail.

Send an e-mail to Margaret England, at sta5-
birding@embarqmail.com with your name,
contact information, including an emergen-
cy cell number for the tour day, the date you

You may also leave a message at 863-674-

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its intent to issue an environmental resource permit
(File No 272605 001) to Alico, Inc, 640 South Main Street, LaBelle, Florida 33935, to expand an existing limestone
mining operation within a 514,9 acre project area of pasturelands and sugar cane fields. The total area served by
the water management system will be 48 9 acres
Mining on the site began in 1991 A total of 79 4 acres have been mined in two pits on the north side of the proper
that were previously known as the Ridgdill and Son, Inc Ridgdill Pits number 5 and 7 An earlier mine pit on
e east side of the property (the Macaspalt, Inc Moore Haven Mine), which will remain outside of the permitted
system, has already been reclaimed and will remain undisturbed The Bronson Mine site has not been previously
permitted.
Groundwater levels at the mine site are heavily influenced by the water levels maintained in the Caloosahatchee Riv-
er Canal (C 43), which in turn is dependent on water levels maintained in Lake Okeechobee There will be dewater
ing of the active pits during mining. Excess water will be circulated through recharge ditches surrounding each mine
pit, with water elevations controlled by a system of weirs
The mine is designed to recycle and store all process wastewater and runoff from storm events up to a 25 year,
72-hour storm No wetlands are proposed to be adversely impacted by the mining The only other surface waters
on the site are the existing mine pits
No impervious surfaces will remain after mining. The maximum depth of the proposed mining will be approximately
30 feet below the existing grade, which is about 28 feet below the average water table After mining, the project
will result in six deep lakes, totaling approximately 203 7 acres All landforms within the water management system
will be re-contoured with a maximum 4H IV (horizontal vertical) slope Subaqueous portions of the lake shoreline

Fourth of July weekend reports no serious reports


Fourth of July was peaceful,
no major calls, said
assistant chief

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Clewiston Assistant Chief
Kristine Petersen, following a long week at


work, sat in her couch in her home, nestled
with her dogs in the evening and watched
as the city's fireworks display went off in the
sky.
Her home is located perfectly across
the field from where the fireworks were
launched, and she hoped as she sat and lis-
tened to John Philip Souza, that she would
not get calls about residents injuring them-
selves on Saturday.
The assistant chief is happy to report that


there is nothing to report.
According to her, the Fourth of July week-
end came and went without a hitch, and
residents for the most part respected the fact
that they couldn't detonate mini-WMDs in
their backyards.
"We had some people who had those
exploding fireworks that you can't have, but
they were very gracious when our officers
approached them," said Assistant Chief Pe-
tersen.


At the field next to the John Boy Audito-
rium, many cars lined up to watch the spec-
tacle, and officers worked traffic detail. The
assistant chief reported a good turn out and
left only when it seemed that everything was
well in hand.
"It went very well," the assistant chief
said.

ing the cells. The facility will be divided into
two sections, each housing 48 cells and will
also be equipped with its own control room
for monitoring the prisoners, It will also have
a day room for each side.
Each steel cell will be trucked in, com-
plete with bed and bathroom facilities, to be
put in place. All that will be required is to
hook up the plumbing.
The outside wall facing Lee Street will
conform to city standards with a concrete
block and stucco facade. Contractors also
left as many of the oak trees as possible to
allow the facility to better fit into the neigh-
borhood.
The facility's electrical system and fire
alarm will be separate from the main jail. It
will allow easy movement of prisoners be-
tween the main jail to the addition, as neces-
sary.
Contractor Jimmy Pittman said it is his
company's first experience with this type of
prefabricated building. He said the facility
will be secure. "It's an economical way to
build a jail," he said, and the best alternative
to a whole new jail at this time.

Pittman's Project Manager Juan Cardenas
said the facility's completion date is March
1, 2010. However, it is hoped that the facility
may be open as early as the end of the year.
Sheriff Steve Whidden said this facility will
help alleviate the overcrowding problem in
the Hendry County Jail temporarily. He said
the facility has been needed for a long time.
"One day," he added, "we all hope to have a
huge jail outside the city limits."
Hendry County Commissioners Tris
Chapman and Kevin McCarthy echoed that
sentiment, saying it's a good interim way to
relieve overcrowding in the jail till the coun-
ty has the means to build a new jail.
Hendry County Commission Chair Ja-
net Taylor provided opening remarks and a
quick timeline of the jail expansion, which
began in 2004 and has been a project of
several sheriff's administrations, including
Steve Worley and Ronnie Lee. The facility
is being funded entirely by ad valorem tax
money, she added.
Art Droste, of architect RQAW, said his
team has been working hard on this proj-
ect for some three years and has managed
"to get the price down to where we never
thought we could."
The cost of construction will be approxi-
mately $2 million.
The Jail Expansion Team included Art


American Flag
The American Flag was one of the last
over Clewiston.
