The Happy Chef


INI/Jose Zaragoza
Just as the old Goodwill store down Sugarland Highway is closed to prepare for the larger
store opening at the Clewiston Town Center, a new business has been spotted at the loca-
tion. The owners of The Happy Chef Diner could be seen working around the store this week.
We'll see what they'll be serving up in the next few weeks.

With weeks to go,
final pitch for inland
port is made
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HENDRY--After Governor Char-
lie Crist pledged to consider Hendry
County's pitch for the inland port
concept, and that was the last that
the area heard of it, County Com-
missioner Karson Turner thought it
was time that locals did something
to push the idea forward.
In light of news that U.S. Sugar
would be selling land to the state
for a grand-scale rehabilitation
project for the Everglades, few lo-
cals found solace in the governor's
words.
"I've heard nothing from Gov-
ernor Crist," said Commissioners
Turner. "All I've heard is that he's
getting ready to run for senate."
So with just a few weeks before
the Port of Palm Beach is expected
to make a decision regarding where
the inland port project -- a project
that has the promise of creating
thousands of jobs through a plan

Pahokee dismissed from Nike 70N tourney

Hall on Nike: 'They had it
out for us'


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BEAVERTON (Ore.) For the second year
in a row, the Pahokee Blue Devils have been
booted out of the Nike 70N national tourna-
ment.
It has not been truly confirmed why Pa-
hokee was sent home early.
But Nike did release a statement as to
their explanation of the decision, which left
members of the Blue Devils stunned, to say
the least.
"Every team was briefed on our code of
conduct policy on Wednesday (July 15),"
said Leroy Ebanks, the Nike brand manager.
"We had a conversation with every team
about what the expected level of behavior
would be on campus. Essentially, [Pahokee]
violated that code of conduct, and they were
dismissed from the tournament."
Dennis Hall, a Pahokee wideout and one
of 20 players who flew out to Oregon last
week, was both surprised and disappointed
that his Blue Devils didn't get to participate
in the Nike 70N tournament.
"We don't know the real reason Nike
kicked us out," Hall said. "We'll just wait to
see what they have to say about it."
For now, unfortunately, only a myriad of
allegations as to what happened have sur-
faced.
And it has been particularly frustrating for
Pahokee since these alleged rumors have
come out.
After a preliminary round game that Pa-
hokee played on Thursday, July 16 (Day 1),
at least two unidentified Pahokee represen-
tatives were allegedly involved in a dispute
with a Nike official.
This alleged incident occurred not long
after a group of Pahokee players were told
by Nike representatives to quiet down after
player representatives from eight selected
teams were told by ESPN college football
analyst Kirk Herbstreit to 'make some noise,'
according to Hall.
Pahokee, Miami-Northwestern, Byrnes
(S.C.), DeSoto (Tx.), Gainesville (Ga.), Dal-
las-Skyline (Tx.), Lakewood (Calif.) and Gar-
dena-Serra (Calif.) were the eight programs
that Nike selected to compete in this year's
Nike70N tournament.
Herbstreit was a featured guest speaker
at The Huddle, a meeting room in which
all eight teams were reportedly engaged in
a hour-long speaking session by the ESPN
personality.
"It just got loud when Kirk Herbstreit was
asking us if there were any California, Texas,
South Carolina, Georgia or Florida teams out
there," Hall explained.
After an unidentified group of Pahokee
players were told by Nike officials to leave
the meeting, a confrontation reportedly
sparked from that, according to Hall.
No other information was revealed by
Hall in regards to the alleged incident.
"A Nike staff member thought Pahokee
was making the most noise. We were loud,
but I don't think that was a good reason to
kick us out of the tournament."

Pahokee's De'Joshua Johnson eludes two defenders after making a spectacu-
lar catch in a preliminary game at the Nike 70N tournament last week. Pahokee
was identified by Nike as the 'Vapor Jets' for the competition.


Pahokee, according to Hall, was dis-
missed from their hotel suites the next
morning (July 17).
Staying at the Embassy Hotel Suites, with
all expenses paid for by Nike, Hall said that
Nike officials wanted to 'kick Pahokee out at
9:30 a.m.'
But, according to Hall, Pahokee was al-
lowed to stay until check-out time, which
was noon.
The events after that moment had alleg-
edly infuriated members of the team, includ-
ing Hall and De'Joshua Johnson, to name
just two.
One nasty allegation was that Pahokee
was involved in a theft, but it's not at all clear
to this day what actually happened.
"It wasn't us stealing, it was kids from
other teams who stole from Nike," Johnson
said of the alleged incident. "We feel we
were marked from last year."
Pahokee was reportedly kicked out of
the 2008 Nike 70N tournament for engag-
ing in an all-out brawl with Miami-Booker T.
Washington after losing 22-21 in a prelimi-
nary game.
"Nike provided us with everything, so
what do we need to steal up there for?" Hall
wondered. "They had it out for us."
Hall added that after Pahokee boarded
their charter buses to Portland International
Airport, the Blue Devils had to stay at the lo-
cation for about 10 hours.
Pahokee's flight from Oregon to West
Palm Beach was at about 10 p.m. that Friday
night (July 17).
Johnson on Nike's treatment of Pahokee
after being removed from the competition:
"We had no food and no money," John-
son said of his team. "Nike refused to offer
us lunch and dinner. What's messed up is
that before we came to Oregon, Nike told us
not to bring any money because everything
is going to be on them."


Hall couldn't agree more with Johnson's
assessment of Nike.
"They [Nike officials] were being nasty to
us," Hall said. "I don't know why they would
do that, but I do know Nike treated us like
dogs after they sent us to the airport. They
didn't want to have anything to do with us
anymore."
Representatives from Nike could not be
reached for comment on this particular sub-
ject matter.
The flight home was relatively quiet, Hall
said, as the Pahokee Blue Devils, were still
shocked and stunned by what occurred.
"I can't believe this, man," Hall said. "Two
wrongs don't make a right but if we stayed,
we probably would've won the champion-
ship."
Blaze Thompson, the Pahokee Blue Dev-
ils head coach, was unavailable for com-
ment after multiple attempts to reach him
by his cell phone.
Notes: Miami-Northwestern defeated
DeSoto (Tx.), 34-23 in the Nike70N cham-
pionship game.
Pahokee and Miami-Northwestern won
their respective divisions in the preliminary
games.
Pahokee's dismissal prevented the nation
from seeing the first-ever matchup between
the Blue Devils and the Bulls.
It has been confirmed by Rivals.com that
the Kickoff Classic Game between Pahokee
and Miami-Northwestern, originally sched-
uled for Friday, Aug. 28 in Pahokee, has been
cancelled.
It would have been the No. I overall
game of the year, as recently ranked by Ri-
vals.com.

First Confirmation of HINI-Flu in Hendry County


Hendry County, FL-The Hendry and
Glades County Health Departments were
informed today of the first confirmed H IN -
Flu in Hendry County.
A sample that was sent to the lab was
confirmed today for the HI N1 virus.
The client had mild symptoms and has
fully recovered. Individuals in close contact
with the client have not shown any symp-
toms, but will be monitored.
While most cases of HINI Swine Flu
are mild, there are exceptions. Pre-existing


health conditions often play a role in how
individuals react to the flu. Florida currently
has listed 2,188 confirmed cases of HIN1
Swine Flu.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments will continue to closely moni-
tor the situation.
The Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments recommend the following:
*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 and warm water to
lessen the spread of any respiratory illness-
es. Wash in between your fingers, your fin-
ger nails, your wrists and forearms.
*Avoid touching your eyes, nose and
mouth.
*Cover your nose and mouth with a tis-
sue when you cough or sneeze. Throw the
tissue in the trash after you use it.
*Routinely wipe down "shared" items


(phones, door knobs, hand rails etc.) with a
household sanitizer.
The symptoms of H1N 1-Flu are very simi-
lar to the symptoms of the regular seasonal
flu and may include: -Fever (over 100*F) -
Cough and/or Sore Throat Body Aches -
Headache Chills Fatigue.
If you have further questions regarding
HINI, please contact your healthcare pro-
vider.

fans with the next level of improvements, in-
cluding: Building more of a fan viewing area
in turn four; Increased parking adjacent to
turns three and four; And getting a handle


on the precise amount of water to make the
track work well.

ting together the first show working togeth-
er, things went smoothly and bodes well for
the future of dirt short track racing in South
Florida.

Walk in the Past: The Fort


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Editor's Note: The following is Part I of
a two-part series. The second part will
be featured in next week's edition of the
newspaper.
The Apalachicola River coursed through
swamps that stained the river a tannic brown
as it flowed southward, moving restlessly
along an ageless passage to the Gulf of Mex-
ico. Its slow, meandering waters were broad
and smooth, except for ripples and eddies
that interrupted its surface when sluggish
currents collided with submerged logs.
The silent gaze of the river captured the
crudely built cabins and shoreline scenes in
vivid, watery images that were enraptured
by beautiful songs borne by the winds. The
sounds carried by the gentle breezes to the
river's edge were the musical hymns of peo-
ple, joyfully laboring together to harvest the
rich soil's bounties.
Laughter and song overcame the hard
labor as their many hands worked swiftly to
relieve the heavily laden corn stalks of their
golden treasures. Avoice with song rang out
loud and was followed by a chorus of other
voices, rich in southern black folklore.
Ebony faces radiated with the joy of free-
dom as their voices rose above the forest and
reached out to the heavens in spiritual jubi-
lee. They were a people who had known the
terrible bondage of slavery and now basked
in their new found freedom.
The Negro Fort, perched on a small
bluff overlooking the river, overshadowed
and protected their community like a fierce
hawk. Its military strength included canons,
powder, muskets and 300 armed black mili-
tiamen, whose allegiance was to no nation,
but to a universal truth, which declares that
all men are created equal.
Liberty at the Negro Fort would be short
lived because it threatened the insane age
of reason that prevailed in the world at that
time. Slavery, a centuries old lie had been
grafted into the America culture and molded
into an ill, misshapen truth by greedy men.
It was an ugly truth that would be nourished
and protected by wealthy slaveholders, even
at the expense of a bloody civil war.
The War of 1812 birthed a poem called
the "Defence of Fort McHenry" in 1814. It
was written by Francis Scott Key and later
made into a song titled, "The Star-Spangled
Banner." In 1931, a congressional resolution
signed by President Hoover made the song
our national anthem.
Very powerful, yet contradicting words
in this song read, "For the land of the free"
because the Negro Fort was destroyed two
years later. It is time to "Take a Walk in The
Past" and read about some of the events that
led to the First Seminole Indian War.
In 1814, The Treaty of Fort Jackson was
signed after Creek Red Stick resistance was
broken at The Battle of Horseshoe Bend. Its
harsh terms demanded the Creeks cede 23
million acres of their homelands to the Unit-
ed States. Most of the ceded lands were lo-
cated in what is now Alabama, while smaller
cessions came from territories known today
as southwest Georgia.
The Treaty of Ghent, which ended the
War of 1812, called for the removal of Brit-


ish forces from America. Withdrawal of
British troops from the southeast removed
the much needed military support for the In-
dians that continued to fight the Americans
and opened the ceded lands in the southeast
to settlement.
The Indian lands represented the Ameri-
can dream to the settler, who viewed land as
wealth. Most of America during this time pe-
riod was an agrarian culture whose industry
was farming. New land that was rich in top
soils had the same mystical affect on the set-
tler as a gold strike had on the prospector.
American settlers rushed to the Indian
lands like a torrential river, sweeping aside
the Indians as they spread quickly over the
coveted Creek territories, inundating the
lands with farms and towns. The territory
that would later become Alabama had a
population of approximately 9,000 in 1810.
Ten years later the population had increased
to 144,000.
European governments protested that
the settlements on Creek lands were illegal.
The British contended that article nine in the
Treat of Ghent (signed in 1814 and approved
by the U.S. Senate in 1815), stated that Brit-
ish Indian allies, who had fought against the
United States, should have all their prewar
territories and possessions restored.
The American government contested this
claim, declaring that the Treaty of Jackson
in 1814 had settled the affairs of the Creek
Indian War prior to the Treaty of Ghent. It
should be noted that article nine in the Trea-
ty of Ghent was reviewed by American del-
egates before they signed the treaty and later
approved by the U.S. Senate. In all fairness,
article nine should have been honored or re-
moved from the Treaty of Ghent.
The Creek Confederacy was now a de-
feated and broken people, forced to give
way to the invading settlers. Rather than
facing the uncertainties of life in the United
States, many of the Creeks chose to become
refugees in La Florida. This was the third mi-
gration of Creeks into Florida.
Creek war leaders, who had retreated
into Spanish Florida during the Creek War,
received aid from the British and continued
their fight against the Americans until the
War of 1812 ended in 1815. When the war
ended, the Creek Red Sticks felt that the Brit-
ish were abandoning them and protested to
the British government. Several times, differ-
ent Red Stick leaders, with the aid of sym-
pathetic British citizens still living in Florida,
traveled to England and presented their cas-
es to the crown. England failed to intervene
on the Indians behalf for fear it could start
another war with the United States.
During the War of 1812, the British had
attempted to create a black army of 5,000 in
Florida that would be used to invade Geor-
gia and start a slave insurrection. Andrew
Jackson forfeited the British plans when
he captured Pensacola and later won the
Battle of New Orleans. However, blacks did
receive military training from British officers
stationed at the British forts and marched to
war with the Redcoats at The Battle of New
Orleans.
The South had always been fearful of a
Black Insurrection and had good reason.

The Meaning of "The
Declaration"
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The Declaration of Independence says,
"We hold these truths to be self-evident that
all men are endowed by their Creator with
certain inalienable rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness
- That to secure these Rights governments
are instituted among men, deriving their just
powers from the consent of the governed."
According to Jefferson and those who
pledged their lives, fortunes and sacred hon-
or to defend their declaration, the founda-
tion of America's culture lay in self-evident
truth that all men are created by God.
Because of that fact, all must be equal in
His sight, equal before the law, and equal in
value.
Further, they reasoned that all God-given
human rights are to be safeguarded by the
civil state in order to fulfill its obligation to
God to establish justice.
It is no accident that they listed as the first
and most fundamental of all rights the right
to life.
The Declaration is saying that it agrees
with God.
All men have unique value because all
are made in God's own image. Therefore,
human life is sacred, demanding to be treat-
ed with respect and dignity by all men.
Unless the civil state recognizes this inter-
pretation of the right to life, the next founda-
tional value spoken by Jefferson is rendered
meaningless.
The word "Liberty" becomes a mere hol-
low rhetoric unless individual men respect
human life and practice individual self-re-
straint in regard to the lives of others.
Abuse denies value (rooted in the pur-
poses of God) and diminishes the liberty of
the abused.
Likewise, if a man must be forcibly re-
strained from such tryannical conduct, he,
too loses liberty.
Only through self restraint (self-govern-
ment which respects the sanctity, dignity
and value of all human life) can man enjoy
liberty.
Finally, men must be free to pursue hap-
piness. Interestingly, the key concept clearly
understood here by our founding fathers
was that of private property the right to win,
control, inherit and steward private property
within one's family.
In their world, freedom to own was the
epitome of pursuing happiness. This free-
dom to produce and steward wealth was
central to their concept of liberty.
Our only hope is to rebuild a new cultural
consensus.
We must reestablish the preeminence of
and the content of our nations' original self-
evident truths.
They must become real values of ordi-
nary citizens. They must not be reduced to
mere buzz words by which politicians ma-
nipulate unwary voters.
This was evident in the last election. They
must govern us in all spheres of govern-
ment.

Ethics: The Great


Commandments and Pitfalls New Methods for New Times


to avoid
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I attended a recent conference and the
topic of ethics came up. For many profes-
sionals, a code of ethics is a part of their
being able to practice; for others there is no
code of ethics.
Unfortunately, ethics among clergy seem
to vary.
There is a trial in one of our neighbor-
ing communities where a clergyman has
been accused of improperly taking money
through an investment plan.
There is certainly a role conflict when a
person attempts to serve in two capacities at
once; either he serves as a clergyman or as
an investment counselor but not both.
For my own practice, I avoid involvement
in the financial affairs of those who share
in my ministry. If I am worried about the fi-
nances of the church (and how they might
affect my ministry) and a couple come to
talk about a marriage problem, I have a con-
flict if I am aware of their financial situation.
Would their separation mean a decrease
in their giving; and have an influence on the
Church... and my job?
If I have no awareness of their particular
place in the operations of the Church, I am
free to advise without my own needs enter-
ing into the picture.
Someone who seeks the ministry of the
church or help from the clergy should have
an assurance that there are no "hidden agen-
das" involved in what is shared.
Where I have had a conflict, I refer to oth-
ers for special ministrations; I see that as ba-
sic ethics. All too often, clergy have felt that
their ministries give them a special place in
getting involved in areas that are really be-
yond their scope of expertise.
One retired clergyman volunteered at a
mental health center near his home. He be-
gan telling the professionals on the staff that
they were doing things wrong and did not
listen to their explanations for why things
were done as they were.
It seems he thought he knew things he
simply did not know and it took some rude,
direct encounters to let him know he was
not needed.
Ethics get down to two simple command-
ments; that we love the Lord with all of our
hearts, souls, minds and strength; and our
neighbor as ourselves (Mark 12:30)."
When I love my neighbor, I don't worry
about my interests when he is hurting; when
I love God, I look at His creatures and see
them as sacred to be respected, honored
and not for taking advantage.
When any of us have a ministry, whether
as ordained or as a layperson; we have a sa-
cred trust. Exploitation of any kind is putting
self before others or God; self-interest is not
found in the Lord or His teachings.
I see things done in the name of "re-
ligion" from time to time that bring a bad
name to the many, many faithful, both lay
and clergy, who strive to reflect God's love
and the gifts given them. A lot of correction
is needed at times!


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
On the third day of the Battle of Gettys-
burg, General Robert E. Lee ordered an at-
tack which called for almost 12,500 men to
charge over 1,000 yards of open terrain to
meet the Union army.
Less than 150 survived.
Lee, great general that he was, made the
fatal mistake of fighting the battle with what
used to work.
He'd been trained at West Point in Napo-
leon's war tactics masses of men, advanc-
ing against imprecise, short-range weapon
until they could overwhelm the opposing
troops in hand-to-hand combat.
Times had changed as well as the range
and accuracy of rifles. Masses of soldiers
were brought down long before they could
ever reach the Union lines.
A lot of us are still making that fatal mis-
take today when it comes to fighting the
battle for which Jesus gave His life.
The Good News about Jesus always has
been and always will be the unchanging
"power of God for the salvation of everyone
who believes" (Romans 1:16).
That message is always relevant, always
powerful, never to be tampered with, wa-
tered down, or compromised.
But the methods by which we present
His message are always subject to change.
Unfortunately, many of us haven't changed
our methods for a long time.
We're still trying to reach people with
what used to work. But many of today's lost
people don't know the Bible, don't under-
stand the "Christianese" words we use, and
they don't ever plan to come to a religious
meeting to hear a religious speaker talk on a
religious subject in a religious place.
We can't risk losing them because we
insist on doing what we've always done or
only what we're comfortable with.
The eternity of people all around us is at
stake, and this is a battle that is too costly
to lose.
If we insist on fighting today's battle for
the lost with what worked yesterday, we'll
keep on reaching those whom we've already
been reaching, while most of the spiritually
dying people around us live and die without
God and without hope.
In terms of method, the Apostle Paul tells
us to be willing to do whatever it takes, with-
in Biblical boundaries, to rescue the dying.
Today, that might mean going to where
they are instead of them coming to where
we are; doing outreach in places where they
feel comfortable instead of in our religious
building; and communicating Christ in non
religious words that a lost person can under-
stand.
It might mean delivering the message in
music that is their musical language instead
of ours; and realizing that it's going to be the
everyday believer like you and me that we'll
have to depend on to rescue the lost more
than those programs we keep creating. The
program of God for rescuing the dying is the
people of God.

Port

to route major commercial traffic through
the area, along with the construction of a
facility to serve as a main hub, warehouses
and other manufacturing areas some in
the area are focusing on getting the award.
One of the major sites being considered
belongs to Florida Crystals and is located
near the city of South Bay because of its
proximity to U.S. 27 and railroad access.
Local county officials, however, have urged
the port to consider a site in Hendry Coun-
ty, which shares the benefits of the Florida
Crystals land, but would also help to offset
any loss in jobs that might be created by
Sugar's land sale to the state.
The two local sites include the Weekely


Brothers Industrial Park and the Airglades
Industrial Park, both in Hendry County.
Last week, Commissioner Turner invited
members of a number of environmental
groups and representatives of elected of-
ficials to tour the area from Clewiston to
Montura, to Port LaBelle to Ladeca to see
just how well the area might be served by
the project.
At the end of the tour, the biggest concern
seemed to be how to deal with sprawl from
such a project. Would, or could, Hendry
County support the influx of thousands of
new residents to the area should the inland
port create the demand for it? How might
municipal services be burdened beyond
their ability to deliver to those new popula-
tions, and where would new homes be built
to support the workers?
"Between Clewiston and LaBelle, you can
have a nice home for upper-level executives,


workers, but you don't have that capability
in Belle Glade or Pahokee," said Commis-
sioner Turner. "We could fill up Port LaBelle
and we could fill up any developments and I
still think we can operate without an expan-
sion of our infrastructure."
This can be accomplished, he said, with-
out destroying the natural resources that
make the areas around Lake Okeechobee
worth growing up in.
"We can readily take commercial ac-
tivities overnight and not harm the environ-
ment," he said. "I wanted them (the partici-
pating members of the Sierra Club and other
environmental groups) to see it first hand.
Anytime we can develop something eco-
nomically but it doesn't impede the environ-
ment, then that's a good thing."
Despite this, the commissioner is cog-
nizant that the project may not be sited in
Hendry County, but promises that all hope is


Countywide curfew now in effect


By Patty Brant
IN[ Florida
As a deterrent to gang activity, the Hendry
County commissioners, with the full agree-
ment of Sheriff Steve Whidden, opted to
place a curfew on juveniles, limiting when
they can be out at night.
The ordinance was passed May 26. The
ordinance is also intended to help ensure
the safety of young people who may be eas-
ily victimized, especially after dark.
The law affects anyone under 17 years of
age.
In general, minors are not allowed to be
in a public place between the hours of 11
p.m. and 5 a.m. Sunday through Thursday,
except when school is not in session the fol-
lowing day.
On Saturday, Sundays and days when
school is not in session, they may not be out
between 12:01 a.m. and 6 a.m.
In addition, a minor who has been sus-
pended, expelled or truant from school may
not be in a public place, establishment or
within 1,000 feet of a school between 7 a.m.
and 3 p.m. on school days.

Exceptions
Exceptions are included in the ordinance.
Minors may be allowed out during those

hours if:
1. He or she is accompanied by a parent,
sibling at least 18 years of age or person at
least 21 with control of the minor and the
parent's permission;
2. If he/she holds a job and must travel to
or from that job during those times;
3. If they are engaged in interstate travel;
4. If they are on an errand with the par-
ent's written permission;
5. If they are involved in, or responding
to, an emergency;
6. If they are attending a school, religious
or local civic organization activity that is su-
pervised by adults;
7. If they are on their own property or the
next door neighbor's property, with their
permission;
8. If they are attending or returning to or
from an activity that involves the exercise of
rights protected under the First Amendment.
(This would include attending religious ac-
tivities, political rallies, etc.);
9. If they are married or has been mar-
ried in accordance with the law or had the
disability of nonage removed by a court of
competent jurisdiction. (This would occur
if a minor had successfully petitioned the
court to be declared an adult.);
10. If they are on active duty with the
armed forces;

Basket of Love
Foundation
The ABM Elite Ladies Society is offering
baskets containing hygiene, cleaning sup-
plies and food items to victims of employ
ment loss, foreclosure and financial hard-
ship with the last 30 days.
Baskets are free to anyone who is in need
of them, all that is needed is proof of finan-
cial hardship at the University & Theological
Seminary located at 525 East El Paso Ave in
Clewiston. For further information please
call 863-983-8505 ext. 0.


11. If they are homeless or use a public
or semi-public place as their usual place of
abode; and
12. If they are participating in an event for
which the sponsor has received permission
from the county commission for minors to
be during restricted hours.

Penalties
The ordinance also holds parents and
business owners responsible for their minor
children and sets penalties for those who al-
low a child to violate the curfew.
Minors, parents and/or business owners
may be penalized by a written warning for
their first violation; after that a $50 fine will
be imposed.
Anyone violating the curfew ordinance -
minor, parent or business owner may be
given a notice to appear by law enforce-
ment.
Minors may also be taken into custody.
Information will be recorded on the minor
and the parent called to pick them up.
If the parent cannot be contacted or re-
fuses to pick the child up, the officer may
transport the minor home.
According to Sheriff Whidden, the par-
ents may face criminal charges.


not lost to that possibility.
"I don't think that there's any reason for
the residents of Glades or Hendry to stress
if we're not chosen number one," he said.
"I don't think the Palm Beach Port Authority
will be able to develop this site all of their
own. They're broke. They had to fire people
this year because they had no more mon-
ey."
If that is the case, then the other ports
that might also be served, the Ports of Miami
and the Everglades, would need to become
involved. That's where Hendry County can
come in, the commissioner promised.
"We're willing to be a go-between,"
Commissioner Turner said.
