A new direction: Goodwill pulls up their sleeves


With their retail store just one day from opening, Goodwill Industries is looking to build
rental units for low-income disabled residents in Hendry County.


Goodwill looks to build


apartments for the disabled


$2.2 million project
counts on support
from city, county
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- With a Good-
will Superstore about to open at
the Clewiston Town Center, the
corporation has already switched
gears to focus on addressing the
needs of a part of the population
that desperately needs it.
If successful, Goodwill hopes


to provide apartment units to resi-
dents who are physically disabled
at a low cost. The organization
has approached the city of Clewis-
ton, as well as Hendry County, to
provide local contributions in its
search for grant funding.
As it stands, the project con-
sists of 14 one- and two-bedroom
units to be constructed on an un-
developed 1.8 acre site in Clewis-
ton. The plans call for a one-story,
multi-unit building series at 1016
W. Ventura Ave.
Goodwill is seeking between
$208,000 and $308,000 in local


funding, as well as $1.9 in fund-
ing from the U.S. Department
of Housing and Urban Develop-
ment (HUD) to make the project
happen.
To qualify, Goodwill Indus-
tries is making the apartment
units available to low-household
incomes. Tenants who are physi-
cally disabled and are at or below
50 percent of the county's medi-
an income will pay no more than
30 percent of their household in-
come toward rent and utilities.

2006 hit


and run
Agency begins work
on unsolved cases
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
HENDRY-Officials with the
Florida Highway Patrol are hop-
ing that residents with information
about a fatal hit-and-run case from
a few years back will come for
ward to finally help bring the case
to a close.
In reviewing a number of their
older cases, investigators decided
to bring back those cases that have
remained unsolved. The hope
is that the newly focused atten-
tion will lead FHP to the suspects
who have not answered for their
crimes.
One such case is a Dec. 22, 2006
death involving a bicyclist in Hen-
dry County.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol, officials responded to
the hit-and-run at approximately
6:52 p.m. that day on S.R. 29, just
south of C Road.
Witnesses told investigators
that the bicyclist had been struck
by two vehicles as the man crossed
the roadway.
The first vehicle was described
as a smaller, dark colored pick-up

Roll-Back equals TAX INCREASE


By Karson Turner
I have a confession to make. When I
moved back to Clewiston in 2007 full time I
was ignorant about what our tax dollars ac-
tually covered. I could not tell you where they
all went and I could not tell you what most
if any of the 14 special districts covered. One
of the first public meetings I attended prior
to my full time return home was a hospital
board meeting. I was reintroduced to the
term millage.
I heard a phrase roll-back which clearly
meant to me some sort of a reduction. I am
certain we teach our children in school, If
you don't know exactly what a word means
look at how it used in the sentence. Think of
where you have seen it used in other ways.
Roll-Back, BINGO! Wal-Mart is going to Roll-
Back the prices.
The Nissan dealership is rolling back to
2000. Hampton Chrysler is rolling back gas
prices to 2004, buy now and you get gas for a
year rolled back to what you paid then. That
is not the case in Government world. Roll-
Back is this phrase you use to dupe the pub-
lic. They don't say that, maybe I am being to
direct and mean again. You don't raise the
millage you roll it back to get the same rev-
enue. We rolled back and it increased your
millage but we did not raise your taxes.
I could scream when I hear that phrase
used by people. I was so happy in my first
round of budget workshops to hear the fel-
low commissioners say that Roll Back is a
raise and we should call it a Roll Up. Makes
sense to me, I am using it. I intend to be say-
ing to you all that we are not rolling up your
taxes that we are keeping the millage set
at 6.5 again this budget year. Last year the
board was considering an increase or roll
back until the public showed up and in an
emotional turn of events the county dipped
into the Hurricane Emergency fund and
pledged to pay back the 2.7 million to keep
the millage rate the same. Our entire county


has worked hard to replenish that fund. The
clerk has contributed the most in an effort to
bring it back to normal and with the remain-
ing 230,000 plus to be repaid by a FEMA grant
that is from Hurricane Wilma the county will
be whole in the Emergency account. In this
current budget crisis, with property values
being so much lower than they were last
year, when we leave the millage at 6.5 the
county will receive less money in revenues.
Doing this means there will be a reduction
in services, at what level remains to be seen.
There will be a tremendous amount of in
depth looking into departments and hope-
fully we can operate at a more efficient level
to bring our residents the service we need
and have become accustom to.
Currently the School Board has the high-
est millage rate and I do not know what their
proposed number is but I believe it is to be
set at a higher number. Last year in 2008 the
school board millage was 7.6 and prior to
that in 2007 7.5. I think most people would
say in an effort to retain teachers and ad-
ministrators we agree to taxes being raised.
I hope they are using the dollars wisely and
cutting where they can and not harming the
educational system. The school board is a
strong group of people that I feel will get the
job done and hold people accountable.
The County administration has asked
us the Board of County Commissioners to
consider the Roll-Up rate of 7.24 and they
received a definitive NO from the major-
ity of commissioners. We will have more
budget workshops and the next meeting
for the Board of County Commissioners is
scheduled for August the 4th. We welcome
anyone that would like to ask a question in
regards to their taxes and what is being pro-
posed. We will also have a budget workshop
where the public has the ability to weigh in
and give their reasoning on what we should
or should not do. I personally feel that we
must ask everyone to cut back and I can not

Terriers to i

Bond: 'I expect several
records to be broken'

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
MOORE HAVEN It's been a relatively
uneventful summer when it comes to the
Moore Haven Terriers football team.
But that's all about to change, as the team
gets ready to conduct a series of weightlift-
ing and agility evaluations next week.
On Monday, Aug. 3 and Wednesday, Aug.
5, the Terriers will engage in Big Dog test-
ing an indicator of how far the players have
come in conditioning throughout the sum-
mer.
Standing out in the weight room sessions
is incoming junior Jaime Juarez, who his
head coach, Jason Bond, says is the most im-
proved as far as conditioning is concerned.
Juarez, a offensive/defensive lineman for
the Terriers, said he's been pushing himself
harder all the way from where he was at
conditionally last year.
Suffice to say, in two key weightlifting ex-
ercises the bench press and military press
- Juarez has improved by 30 and 35 pounds,
respectively.
This time last year, Juarez was lifting 275
lbs. on the bench, while putting up 165 lbs.
on the military press,
Now, he's at 305 lbs. on the bench and
200 lbs. on the military all impressive feats
in itself.
"Lifting weights helps you in preventing
injuries and it makes you stronger," Juarez
said.
"I want to be a more aggressive lineman
and help my team make it the playoffs this
year."


conduct Big

Moore Haven, who this year will be a
Class I B team (down from Class 1A), missed
the playoffs in 2008 after going 0-3 in District
6- A play, with losses to Glades Day, Evan-
gelical Christian and St. John Neumann.
The Terriers finished with a 5-5 over-
all record after starting last season 4-0 and
making a brief appearance in the Associated
Press High School Class 1A poll.
But for Moore Haven to even think about
making in playoffs for the first time since
2003, the players may need to make a strong
showing in next week's Big Dog testing.
"We got a lot of good athletes on our
team," Juarez said.
"Before practice starts, I hope all my
teammates come to the Big Dog workouts
and get stronger and better."
In last year's Big Dog testing, a few re-
cords fell, which astonished the players and
coaching staff alike.
Here's a look at the Big Dog records set
last summer:
Military Press: Jaime Juarez 165 lbs.
Power Clean: Jermaine Augustine and
Aaron Lopez 205 lbs.
40-Yard Dash: Josh Patterson 4.3 sec-
onds
400 Meter Run: Elazarus Blackmon 54
seconds
20-Yard Backpedal Run: Josh Patter-
son and Keonte White 3.4 seconds
Vertical Leap: Lascelle Humphrey 28
inches
"I expect several of the records to be bro-
ken again next week," Bond said.
"Jaime Juarez, I think he'll break two or
three of our weightlifting records. He's been
here almost everyday, working himself really
hard to become a good lineman for us this
season."
Moore Haven players will be tested on


Dog testing

these exercise drills:
Bench press
Squat
Power clean
Military press
Vertical leap
20-yard backpedal
40-yard dash
400 meter run
The tests will likely be divided into two
segments, which include two field tests and
two lifting ones on Aug. 3 (Day 1).
That, of course, depends on how the
weather turns out.
If it rains, then all testing may convene
in Moore Haven's weight room facility that
day.
Day 2 (Aug. 5) will cover the rest of the
Big Dog tests.
Notes: To become a member of the Big
Dog club, a players must score at least 80
points in the testing.
The maximum score anyone could get is
120 points, equivalent to 15 points for each
of the eight testing areas.
For example, to score the maximum
amount of 15 in the 40-yard dash, your time
must be recorded at 4.2 seconds.
The two testing days begin at 6 p.m. in
the Moore Haven High School weight room
facility.

Locks Reopened
Okeechobee, FL The South Florida Wa
ter Management District (SFWMD) opened the
navigation locks at J&S Fish Camp (S-135) and
Henry Creek (G-36) on the northern edge of Lake
Okeechobee.
The locks, which allow boaters to navigate
through the Herbert Hoover Dike into the lake,
were closed to boat traffic in order to maintain ca
nal water levels during the recent record-breaking
dry season. Lake Okeechobee's elevation stood at
13.27 feet NGVD on July 15. The two locks will re-
main in the open position with no lock tender un-
til the lake elevation reaches 13.75 feet NGVD, at
which time normal operations with a lock tender
will resume on the following schedule: J&S Fish
Camp (S-135), Henry Creek (G-36): 5:30 a.m. 8
p.m. On the west shore, the S-131 navigation lock
at Lakeport resumed normal operations June 10
on the following schedule: Lakeport (S-131): 5:30
a.m. 9 p.m.
Two other lake locks will remain closed. The
Taylor Creek structure (S-193) will remain closed
until the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers completes
an upgrade of the manatee protection system.
The Buckhead Ridge (S-127) will remain closed
until dredging work on the Pearce Canal and hy-
draulic repairs to the gate mechanism are com-
pleted and water levels remain optimum.

IRS discusses key


Recovery A

WASHINGTON With 2009 now half
over, the Internal Revenue Service reminds
taxpayers to take advantage of the numer-
ous tax breaks made available earlier this
year in the American Recovery and Reinvest-
ment Act (ARRA).
The recovery law provides tax incentives
for first-time homebuyers, people purchas-
ing new cars, those interested in making
their homes more energy efficient and par-
ents and students paying for college. But all
of these incentives have expiration dates so
taxpayers should take advantage of them
while they can.
First-Time Homebuyer Credit
The Recovery Act extended and expand-
ed the first-time homebuyer tax credit for
2009.
Taxpayers who didn't own a principal
residence during the past three years and
purchase a home this year before Dec. 1
can receive a credit of up to $8,000 on either
an original or amended 2008 tax return, or
a 2009 return. But the purchase must close
before Dec. 1, 2009, and an eligible taxpayer
cannot claim the credit until after the closing
date. credit until after the closing date. This
credit phases out at higher income levels,
and different rules apply to home purchases
made in 2008.
New Vehicle Purchase Incentive
ARRA also provides a tax break to taxpay-
ers who make qualified new vehicle pur-
chases after Feb. 16, 2009, and before Jan.
1,2010.
Qualifying taxpayers can deduct the state
and local sales and excise taxes paid on the
purchase of new cars, light trucks, motor
homes and motorcycles. There is no limit
on the number of vehicles that may be pur-
chased, and you may claim the deduction
for taxes paid on multiple purchases. But the
deduction per vehicle is limited to the tax on
up to $49,500 of the purchase price of each
qualifying vehicle and phases out for taxpay-
ers at higher income levels. This deduction
is available regardless of whether a taxpayer
itemizes deductions on Schedule A.
Home Improvements
The Recovery Act also encourages hom-
eowners to make their homes more energy
efficient. The credit for nonbusiness energy
property is increased for homeowners who
make qualified energy-efficient improve-
ments to existing homes. The law increases
the rate to 30 percent of the cost of all qualify-
ing improvements and raises the maximum
credit limit to a total of $1,500 for improve-
ments placed in service in 2009 and 2010.
Qualifying improvements include the ad-
dition of insulation, energy-efficient exterior
windows and energy-efficient heating and
air conditioning systems.
Tax Credit for First Four Years
of College
The American opportunity credit is de-
signed to help parents and students pay part


et Benefits

of the cost of the first four years of college.
The new credit modifies the existing Hope
credit for tax years 2009 and 2010, making
it available to a broader range of taxpayers,
including many with higher incomes and
those who owe no tax. Tuition, related fees,
books and other required course materials
generally qualify. Many of those eligible will
qualify for the maximum annual credit of
$2,500 per student.
Certain Computer Technology
Purchases Allowed
ARRA adds computer technology to the
list of college expenses (tuition, books, etc.)
that can be paid for by a qualified tuition pro-
gram (QTP), commonly referred to as a 529
plan. For 2009 and 2010, the law expands
the definition of qualified higher education
expenses to include expenses for computer
technology and equipment or Internet ac-
cess and related services to be used by the
designated beneficiary of the QTP while en
rolled at an eligible educational institution.
Software designed for sports, games or hob-
bies does not qualify, unless it is predomi-
nantly educational in nature.
Making Work Pay
The Making Work Pay Credit lowered tax
withholding rates this year for 120 million
American households. However, particular
taxpayers who fall into any of the following
groups should review their tax withhold-
ing rates to ensure enough tax is withheld,
including multiple job holders, families in
which both spouses work, workers who
can be claimed as dependents by other
taxpayers and pensioners. Failure to adjust
your withholding could result in potentially
smaller refunds or in limited instances may
cause you to owe tax rather than receive a
refund next year. So far in 2009, the average
refund amount is $2,675, and 79 percent of
all returns received a refund.

New Edison College campus to open August 15


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
Higher education is no longer a luxury.
For many jobs these days, some type of
structured learning after high school is a ne-
cessity.
Edison State College has long been there
for students from LaBelle, Immokalee,
Clewiston, Glades County and even Belle
Glade, who either need a two-year degree
or want to earn a four-year degree close to
home.
Since EC first came to LaBelle, it has been
growing. Now it has outgrown its facility on
the LaBelle High School campus and is re-
locating to the old LaBelle Christian School,
further west on Cowboy Way.
The facility is well suited to Edison's
needs. The main building will house the
main office, along with five rooms and a
large office space.
Brooke Bruhn has been the Center Co-


ordinator of Student Services for two years.
She said the LaBelle campus currently serves
approximately 500 students. With registra-
tion for the 2009-10 term ongoing, she said
enrollment has already increased some 20
percent over last year at this time.
Currently, students must continue to reg-
ister at LaBelle High School till August 15
when the school will officially move to its
new facility on Cowboy Way. Classes start
August 24.
Entering the new facility's main entrance,
you will find a greeting area with offices to
the right.
The old church area on the west end of
the main building is being converted into a
student lounge an area for students to con-
gregate and facilitate student cohesiveness.
In addition there will be two computer labs
and the peer and professional classrooms
off the lounge area.
The move will allow EC to expand in size


as well as its offerings. Look for additional
daytime and morning classes at the new
site.
Online courses are also very popular with
older and working students and EC offers
many AA classes on line. The facility has a
room for proctored tests.
The increase in enrollment may be
spurred by the slow economy, Ms. Bruhn
said, as well as the increase in financial aid
applications.
Overall, the new facility will provide 12
classrooms with space for seven staff mem-
bers and two full time faculty members
Amanda Pollitt: English and Janie Cudworth:
Math.


To the west of the main building, the
modular building will remain and will house
computer classrooms as well as general
classrooms. Computer classes are in high
demand and Ms. Bruhn said the LaBelle
campus offers a class in Microsoft Word
Suite every semester.
At the LaBelle facility, students can earn
general AA degrees, along with degrees in
business and education. Students may earn
AS degrees in business, early childhood
education and criminal justice at the LaBelle
campus.
At this time, students in health-related
fields must travel to the Lee, Collier or Char-
lotte campus.

'A Walk in the Past': The Negro Fort


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Editor's Note: The following is Part 2 of a
two-part series.

Black populations, in some of the south-
ern states like South Carolina, were equal to
the state's white population.
Southern concerns grew as armed black
communities sprang up along Spanish Flori-
da's western panhandle.
Spanish Florida provided a haven for run-
away slaves and freedom for its established
black communities.
This policy encouraged black slaves to
flee from neighboring Georgia and other
nearby southern territories.
Runaway slaves escaping into Florida
grew at an alarming rate and eventually cre-
ated issues between Spain and the United
States.
The threat in Spanish Florida escalated
in 1815, when the British abandoned their
fort at Prospect Bluff, which was located 15
miles upriver on the Apalachicola River in
west Florida.
The fort, including canons, powder and
muskets was given to their allies, the Indians
and blacks.
Later most of the Indians left the fort, but
approximately 300 Blacks stayed on.
The fort came to be known as the Negro
Fort and drew hundreds of blacks to its pro-
tective walls.
Soon a black community with an estimat-
ed population of 1,000 sprang up around the
fort.
The fort was only 60 miles from Geor-
gia and seen as a growing menace to white
slaveholders because it housed an armed
black militia and provided a place of refuge
for runaway slaves.
Southern slaveholders saw it as a boiling
caldron of rebellion that would spread to the
slave territories in the South.
In 1816, due to slaveholder concerns, An-
drew Jackson approved the building of a fort
60 miles north of the Negro Fort.
It was constructed on the west bank of
the Flint River in Georgia and named Ft.
Scott.
The fort would serve as an observation
post for monitoring Indian and black activi-
ties in the vicinity of the Negro Fort.
In 1816, surveyors were sent out to start
surveying part of the ceded Indian lands.
Surveyors under General Edmund Gaines
were threatened by hostile acting Red Sticks,
so Jackson ordered Gaines to prepare for
military action along the Chattahoochee
River.
General Gaines encountered Creeks, who
told him they were too weak and poor to op-
pose him, so Gaines left them alone.
Colonel Duncan Clinch, the commander
of southern Georgia followed Gaines deci-
sion, until two of his men were killed and 30
head of cattle was stolen.
Colonel Clinch prepared for action and
requested permission to march along the
Flint River and destroy all Indian Villages.
Jackson and Gaines rejected his plans
and elected to strengthen Ft. Scott instead.
They reasoned that boats could bring
supplies out of New Orleans and travel up

the Apalachicola River to Fort Scott.
Their reasoning was politically and mili-
tarily sound because the supply boats had
to conveniently pass the Negro Fort, while
traveling to Fort Scott.
In 1816, a convoy of two gunboats and
two schooners approached the fort from
the mouth of the Apalachicola River, while
a force of friendly Creeks and regulars un-
der Colonel Clinch moved in from the north.
General Gaines gave the order for the crews
aboard the boats to fire upon the Negro Fort,
if they fired first.
The convoy met Colonel Clinch at the
Negro Fort.
The men in the fort fired their cannons
at the convoy and troops because they saw
both parties as threatening.
Their cannons were poorly built, and
they failed to hit a single boat.
The Americans returned fire at the fort
and a "hot shot" (a cannon ball heated to
a cherry red) fired at the Negro Fort, struck
the powder magazine where all the kegs of
powder were stored.
The explosion leveled the fort and killed
approximately 300 blacks in the fort.
Supposedly, the explosion was so great
that it was heard in Pensacola, a hundred
miles away.
The carnage in the fort was terrible.
Witnesses said the limbs of men, wom-
en and children were scattered to the four


winds.
The men who survived the explosion
were captured and sold in Georgia to slave
owners.
The Spanish government made an offi-
cial complaint to American authorities, de-
claring that Jackson and Gaines had invaded
a sovereign nation's territories in an act of
war.
The complaint lacked the muscles of
Spain's old ally, the British and went un-
heard

Overcoming childhood obesity in Hendry County's children


Caloosa Belle/Dale S. Conyers
Exercise such as playing on a playground like Scotty and KatieLynn Conyers
are doing is important for a child's health.


By Patty Brant
IN[ Florida
Beginning with those born in the year
2000, children will have a lower life expec-
tancy than their parents.
Let me repeat that.
Beginning with those about nine years
old right now, children can expect to die
before they reach the age at which their par-
ents probably will.
That's a very scary statistic, and much
of that concern is caused by the increase in
childhood obesity.
Nationally, the percentage of young peo-
ple who are obese approximately tripled
since 1980.
In the 1970s some 6 percent of American
youth were considered overweight; now
that figure is at 19 percent.
Of children born in the year 2000, one in
three will develop Type 11 diabetes early. This
used to be known as adult onset diabetes.
In Florida 12.2 percent of children are
either considered obese or at risk with a
body mass index (a statistical measurement
which compares a person's weight and
height) at the 95th percentile or above).
Even closer to home, Hendry County is
ranked sixth in the state in the number of
obese children. Glades County is #4.
In Hendry County, 12.7 percent of middle
schoolers are considered obese or at risk of
obesity.
For Glades County that figure is 19.6 per-
cent.
Among high schoolers, 17.8 percent in
Hendry and 19.1 in Glades are classified as
obese or at risk of obesity.
For the state, those figures are at 11.3 per-
cent of middle schoolers and 11.2 percent of
high schoolers.
Considering that being overweight is a
very good indicator of serious problems to
come, it's clear that young people in Hendry
and Glades are in big health trouble.
Sixty percent of overweight kids have
at least one risk factor for cardiovascular
disease; 25 percent have two risk factors
(including high blood pressure, high cho-
lesterol, breathing problems, back, hip and
knee problems, even depression and low
self esteem.


Of children born in the year 2000, one in
three will develop Type II diabetes early.
This used to be known as adult onset dia-
betes.
Hendry Regional Convenient Care Cen-
ter's Suzanne Bengston, a Nurse Practitio-
ner for 12 years and nurse since 1990, is very
concerned about these trends.
She sees Hendry County as a microcosm
of youth health problems.
She feels that, being a small county lim-
its the resources and funding available and
makes it even more important that we use
the county's strong points to our advantage.
She feels the small, cohesive community
and intimate school system are bonuses.
Parents are key in helping children de-
velop good eating and living habits, she
said, it is up to parents to teach a physical
education "program" at home, focusing on
healthy behavior.
Poor eating habits and lack of exercise
are the main causes of obesity not genet-
ics.
People just don't eat properly any more.
In the 1980s, 80 percent of high school
kids ate green veggies daily; now that figure
has dropped to 30 percent.
Kids also drink less milk, but more juice,
soda and other "sugar water" beverages.
They eat more fast food.
One comparison shows fast food to have
770 calories per meal as opposed to 420 cal-
ories for the average meal at home.
A sedentary lifestyle keeps people from
burning up all those calories.
For instance, kids spend some 44.5 hours
per week outside of school watching TV, us-
ing the computer, etc., instead of engaging
in calorie burning exercise.
One in four students gets no physical ac-
tivity.
Schools are working on ways to deal with
this weight crisis.
From K-3 there has been a dramatic in-
crease in weight at West Glades School,
similar to other schools.
A parent focus group there tracked ex-
cuses for children who were not getting
enough exercise and not eating well.
They boil down to: no time and cost.
The group worked on implementing


ideas to help parents lower food expenses
and add more physical activities.
One idea is to focus on what kids drink
in order to lower calorie intake from sugar
water.
Area elementaries partner with the health
department in the Fresh2U program, which
focuses on getting youngsters to try new
fruits and vegetables.
Finding out that unfamiliar foods can ac-
tually taste good as well as be good for you
can help lead to a lifetime of better eating
habits.
Food Service Director James Sealey said
schools share the responsibility of making
sure kids build good eating habits with par-
ents and guardians.
"We do our very best," he said, to ensure
that students get healthy meals at school.
Schools are required to meet National
School Lunch Program guidelines which
have, in recent years, become even more
health conscious. Schools no longer fry
anything oven baking is the standard and
also use more whole grains, fresh fruit and
healthy alternatives.
Students are also provided with more
choices in the lunch line, especially at the
high school level where kids will often go
without eating rather than eat something
they don't like.
Schools only serve one percent milk and
make sure a healthy breakfast is available
for all students on campus before school
begins.
Vending machines are loaded only with


drinks and healthy snacks.

Exercise
According to the Florida Department of
Health 2007 statistics, at middle school age,
37.7 percent don't get enough exercise; 42.8
percent of high schoolers are also seden-
tary.
Second-year Coach Tyson Frantz at Coun-
try Oaks Elementary said the law requires
150 minutes of physical activity per week.
At COES they also include organized recess
activities.
Most elementary schools participate in
the Presidential fitness program which ex-
poses kids to different sports so each may
find their favorite and learn to maintain it for
a lifetime.
Former LaBelle Elementary School nurse
Michelle Kelley has seen hundreds of chil-
dren over the past 14 years.
Unfortunately, PE classes have felt the
budget pinch in recent years, but Ms. Kel-
ley travelled to a conference in Arkansas last
July where LES received a bronze award for
improving its 2007 goals.
The school also used money from Nickel-
odeon to purchase a climbing wall. She said
TV, computers and high calorie snacks are
taking a toll on children's health.
LES students have a booklet to rate eating
habits and staff is reaching out to parents to
help them become more responsible in en-
forcing good eating habits.

For the love of summer roses, how to care for flowers


By Barbara Oehlbeck
In the last twenty years growing roses in
Florida has escalated almost beyond belief!
When looking for roses, particularly in
discount stores, be careful to be sure there
are at least three master basal canes grow-
ing from the main trunk. And if the plant is
even slightly yellow and black, don't buy it.
This simply means that you'll be buying a
black-spot rose that can easily infect your en-
tire garden....even a big one. In other words,
look carefully enough to determine that it's
a strong, healthy plant. After all, it'll take just
as much time, effort and supplies to plant
an inferior bush as a superior one. And, if
you have a choice of rootstock, fortuniana
is best for Florida. Old garden or Antique
Roses grow on their own roots so these
two are not comparable. Fortuniana root-
stock roses are likely to be in bloom when
you buy them, while the Antiques seldom
are. However, the Antiques are well worth
waiting for. Besides, these are the roses that
will continue to grow bigger and better for
many, many years.
Summer roses in Florida are nothing
less than grand. Some of the cardinal rules
for happy rose-growing include: planting
in a location where they'll get a minimum
of six hours direct sun, preferably morning
sun. There are those who say...sun is sun,
so what difference does it make if it's morn-
ing or afternoon sun. Well, it makes a lot of
difference which is just this: when a rose
is planted in morning shade, then the sun
moves to afternoon and suddenly the rose
is blasted with typical hot Florida sun. Sim-
ply put, generally it's too much for the rose.
Whereas when planted in morning sun, and
then gradually gets shade in the afternoon,
or even partial shade, that's ideal. Potted
roses can be planted any time... any month
of the year.
Roses are purely sun-loving. Some variet-
ies will tolerate more shade than others. My
personal experience is that many Old Gar-
den Roses, also known as Antique Roses,
or Roses of Yesterday are much more likely
to grow and bloom well in partial shade. In
our own garden a few of those include Old
Blush, Cadenza, and the magnificent white
climber, Prosperity. La Marne also takes to
some shade very well, as does Louis Philippe
and Mrs. B. R. Cant. Belinda is nothing short
of magnificent, and not to be confused with
Belinda's Dream which is equally mag-
nificent! In color Belinda is hot pink with
a white eye in each small blossom. Excel-
lent for hedging, it's a stunning climber and
is known for being quite tolerant of partial
shade. Both Belinda and Belinda's Dream
bloom in massive clusters as well as singly.
I have personally found that it's not worth
it for me to try to "make" roses do well in
shade. Being by nature sun-loving, it just
makes good garden sense to give them what
they need to be a source of beauty and joy
to you.
A few years ago I never thought I'd be
saying let alone writing this regarding spray-
ing roses. However, after three to four years
of NOT spraying our roses (for insects or dis-
eases), not even once, I'm a true believer.
If you're careful in selecting roses, that is to
buy the ones that are disease resistant, and
to plant them far enough apart that they


don't touch each other. Feeding and wa-
tering roses is extremely important. Before
fertilizing your roses, soak them with water,
then spread the fertilizer around the bush
at least 6 to 8 inches from the trunk. Then
thoroughly water again! This may sound like
"too much sugar for a cent" but it will pay
off. Also, to boost the results of fertilizing
(there's nothing better than Millorganite)
and Epsom Salts. Sprinkle about a half cup
around each plant and thoroughly water.
If you find you're unable to thoroughly
water your roses after applications of fertiliz-
er, it's better not to fertilize until you do have
time to do the watering they must have to
produce a multitude of blooms, or wait for a
good downpour from Mother Nature...
Florida is naturally endowed with good
porosity soil .... that is, mostly sand which
must be amended with peat moss, cow ma-
nure (horse or sheep is fine) and shovel full
of fine mulch for aeration. Dig the hole half
again as deep and wide as the pot in which
you bought it. In lifting the plant from the
pot be careful not to break up the root ball
which generally exposes feeder roots, and
always respect the soil level in the pot. Fill
in the mixed soil (existing sandy soil, peat
moss, cow manure and compost about
one-fourth each), alternating shovels of the
mixture with water. Firm the root ball in the
hole but DO NOT PACK. Water every day,
when there's no rain, for about two weeks.
By this time you'll be seeing tiny new-green
sprouting and pretty soon here will comes
buds and blooms!
Another point that's often overlooked:
Make a dedicated effort to keep all spent
blooms cut off. If these seedpods are al-
lowed to stay on the plant they will "retard"
the growth and production of new buds
and blooms simply because they will usurp
nutrients from the bush thus slowing down
re-blooming process. And besides, the bush
will grow straggly with spindly branches and
very few buds and blooms.
As stated earlier we do not spray our
roses any more, and we have yet to lose
one bush due to disease or insects. We
water more than we used to and we apply
heavy applications of mulch with compost
mixed in. These ingredients gradually feed
the roses day and night. Roses are by nature
hungry plants. So when roses get ample
food and water, they naturally grow into
healthy bushes, and healthy bushes are al-
most immune to diseases and insects. This
does not imply that our roses never have
an occasional black spot leaf or insects of
one type or another but these are minimal
and minor. Beautiful roses do not bloom on
unhealthy bushes. Therefore it makes good
common sense to grow healthy roses that
will produce masses of blooms bringing joy
and beauty in Florida summers.
CUT ROSES: There are those who say
that roses should be cut in early evening for
longevity as a cut flower. This has not been
my experience ever. When cut in the eve-
ning, roses have already been through a day
of sun and wind. Thus they've already been
subjected to the elements that can rob them
of their stamina. If and when you have no
choice as to cut in morning or early eve-
ning, be sure to plunge each stem in very
warm water immediately. In other words,


take a container with the very warm water
to the garden. Of course, take off the first
three or four leaf clusters. If time will allow,
then place the container in the refrigerator
until the water is the same temperature as
it is inside the frigg. You may be delightfully
surprised how this will refresh the roses and
add to their vase-life.
Roses cut in early morning have last-
ed for us up to a full week when they're
plunged into warm water, refrigerated, and
arranged later. (Naturallysome varieties last
longer than others. Don Juan, for instance,
is a week-long rose when cut as a bud and
treated thusly. And there are others that last


just as long.)

Notice and Public Explanation of a Proposed Activity
in the 100-Year Floodplain and Wetland
To All interested Agencies, Groups and Individuals
This Is to give notice that Glades County has conducted an evaluation as
required by Executive Orders 11988 and 11990 in accordance with HUD
regulations at 24 CFR 55.20 to determine the potential affect that its ac
tvity in the floodplain and wetland will have on the environment
Glades County intends to undertake a project to be funded by a Florida
Small COtls Community Development Block Grant, The proposed proEect is
to demolish and construct replacement housing for up to one (1) housing
units located by low moderate income eligible homeowners The address
for this is 403 Pinecrest Avenue NW, Moore Haven Florida 33471l
It has determined that it has no practicable alternative other than to pro-
teed with the work, This activity will have no significant impact on the en-
vironment for the following reasons,
The housing unit is already located within the 100-year floodplain This
home will be demoltihed and a new replacement housing unit constructed
at the same address
Although the project is located in the 100 year floodplain, the improve
ments cannot be undertaken in any other location due to the scope of the
project There is, therefore, no pra eicable alternative
The proposed improvements conform to applicable floodplain protection
standards. The proposed atlon will not affect natural or beneficial flood
plain values, and residents of the community wil benefit from the project
Additional agencies involved in this project include the Flonda Department
of Community Affairs and the U S Department of Housing and Urban De-
velopment
Written comments must be received by Glades County at the following ad-
dress on or before August 11, 2009 Glades County, PO Box 1018, Moore

2009 Climate Change bill



provides for wildlife and habitats


The simple things we all do
together that can make a
big difference for our future.


By Patricia Behnke
Amid all the media attention on health
care reform, economic recovery and the
first-moonwalk anniversary, a bill made its
way through the U.S. House of Representa-
tives this summer.
It may be just one piece of legislation, but
it is one gigantic leap for the environment
and wildlife.
The American Clean Energy and Security
Act of 2009 contains one section particularly
important to wildlife Natural Resource Ad-
aptation.
It sets a policy "to protect, restore and
conserve natural resources to enable them
to become more resilient, adapt to, and
withstand the impacts of climate change
and ocean acidification."
This is a wise course. Federal dollars
will help state agencies and others "on the
ground" implement the act to make the
kinds of lasting impacts that will ensure our
wildlife adapts and is resilient to these pro-
jected changes.
Jackie Fauls, the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission's (FWC) director
of Legislative Affairs, says the money should
be there to help Florida's managers of wild-
life.
"The bill includes language that will help
fish, wildlife and natural resources adapt in
a warming world," Fauls said.
"It provides 1 percent of revenues from a
cap-and-trade system that will go to domes-


tic natural resource adaptation, beginning
in 2012, and will increase in allocation to 4
percent beginning in 2027."
The adaptation component for wildlife is
crucial because the experts agree that fish
and wildlife will have to adapt to rising sea
levels and warming temperatures, or they
will not survive.
It is up to the wildlife managers in Flor-
ida state government, that's the FWC to
help them adapt and remain resilient.
"Functioning ecosystems are critical to
the future of life on this planet," said Matt
Hogan, executive director of the Association
of Fish and Wildlife Agencies.
"They provide a wide range of life-sus-
taining services in the form of clean water,
clear air, and other benefits that determine
the quality of human life. Ecosystems can
significantly capture carbon and sustain fish
and wildlife, which provide billions of dol-
lars in direct economic benefits."
The FWC has made adaptation of wildlife
a priority by forming first a Climate Change
Team and then an adaptation group that
is already at work designing, planning and
creating strategies that will manage fish and
wildlife in Florida for the challenges ahead.
The climate change bill has the potential
to help agencies, such as the FWC, imple-
ment these management strategies to ensure
no species goes extinct as climate change
becomes more and more real.
"Climate change is a complicated is-
sue," said Terry Doonan, co-chairman of the
FWC's Adaptation Working Group.
"We have some understanding of the im-
pacts of climate change, but we have much
to learn about the specific impacts and how
they change from one part of the state to an-
other. The more we understand, the better


we'll be at ensuring we do the best job pos-
sible of managing and conserving Florida's
diverse fish and wildlife species."
While the politicians debate the virtues
of the bill which could go to a vote in the
Senate sometime in the fall and the wild-
life managers plan strategies, individuals can
lower greenhouse gas emissions, too.
The National Wildlife Federation asks us
to do our part by taking the Good Neighbor
Pledge found on its Web site at http://online.
nwf.org.
I took the pledge today.
By promising such things as replacing five
incandescent light bulbs with compact fluo-
rescent light bulbs; turning off lights when
not using them; turning off my PC, monitor
and printer when not in use; unplugging
electronic devices (or putting on a power
strip that is turned off); setting the thermo-
stat two degrees lower or higher, depending
on the season; using the air-dry setting on
my dishwasher; and driving the speed limit,
I passed the test to be a Good Neighbor.
I even have a certificate to prove it, al-
though I decided to save the ink and paper
and not print it out.
It is the simple things we all do together
that can make a big difference for our fu-
ture.
At the federal, state or individual level, all
of us can do our best to ensure the forecast
for fish and wildlife remains resilient and
hopeful.

Beneficial Advice
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
As a pastor, I receive a lot of sometimes
informative information which just calls out
to be shared.
For instance, someone has collected a
list of Fatal Things to Say to Your Pregnant
Wife which I feel compelled to share with
my brethren.
Following are seven fatal things to say to
your wife when she is pregnant.
#7: "I finished the Oreos."
#6 "Y'know, looking at her, you'd never
guess that Pamela Lee had a baby!"
#5: "Well, could they induce labor? The
25th is the Super Bowl."
#4 "Whoa! For a minute there, I thought
I woke up next to Willard Scott!"
#3: "I'm jealous! Why can't men experi-
ence the joy of childbirth?"
#2: "Are your ankles supposed to look
like that?" and the #1 Fatal Thing to Say to
Your Pregnant Wife:
"You don't have the guts to pull the trig-
ger."
And then there is the question, "Is the
glass half full, or half empty?"
It depends on whether you're pouring, or
drinking.
Other words of wisdom: Always keep
your words soft and sweet, just in case you
have to eat them, and always read stuff that
will make you look good if you die in the
middle of it.
Imagine having to wash a cat. I had to
once, and it was an experience!
Years later, I received the following in-
structions on how to do it properly: Dear P.J.
To bathe the cat:
1. Put both lids of the toilet up and add
1/8 cup of pet shampoo to the water in the
bowl.
2. Pick up the cat and soothe him while
you carry him towards the bathroom.
3. In one smooth movement, put the cat
in the toilet and close both lids. Following
this activity, you may need to stand on the
lid.
4. The cat will self agitate and make am-
ple suds. Never mind the noises that come
from the toilet, the cat is actually enjoying
this.
5. Flush the toilet three or four times.
This provides both the "Power Wash" and
"Rinse."
6. Have someone open the front door
of your home. Make sure that there are no
people between the bathroom and the front
door.
7. Stand behind the toilet as far as you
can, and quickly lift both lids.
8. The cat will now rocket out of the toi-
let, streak through the bathroom, and run
outside where he will dry himself off, cat-
fashion.
9. Both the commode and the cat will be
sparkling clean. "Hope this helps!" Sincerely,
Rover.
"Blessed is the man who finds wisdom,
the man who gains understanding, for it is
more profitable than silver and yields better
returns than gold. It is more precious than
rubies; nothing you desire can compare
with it." Proverbs 3:13-15.


Obama vs. Jefferson
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
A few weeks ago in this column I pointed
out how that the philosophies of the Obama
Administration were completely contrary to
the philosophies of Presidents Washington
and Lincoln.
This week I would like to point out the
contrasting philosophies of President Thom-
as Jefferson and Obama.
President John F. Kennedy once said to
an assembled group of scholars in the White
House. "I think this is the most extraordinary
collection of talent, of human knowledge,
that has even been gathered at the White
House with the exception of when Thomas
Jefferson dined alone."
So here are some quotes from Jefferson
the writer of "The Declaration of Indepen-
dence."
"The democracy will cease to exist when
you take away from those who are willing to
work and give to those who would not."
"It is incumbent on every generation
to pay its own debts as it goes. A principle
which if acted on would save one-half the
wars of the world."
"I predict future happiness for Americans
if they can prevent government from wast-
ing the labors of the people under the pre-
tense of taking care of them."
"My reading of history convinces me
that most bad government results from too
much government."
"No free man shall ever be debarred the
use of arms."
"The strongest reason for the people to
retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as
a last resort, to protect themselves against
tyranny in government."
"The tree of liberty must be refreshed
from time to time with the blood of patriots
and tyrants."
In light of the present financial crisis, it's
interesting to read what Jefferson said in
1802.
"Banking institutions are more danger-
ous to our liberties than standing armies.
If the American people ever allow private
banks to control the issue of currency, first
by inflation, then by deflation, the banks and
corporations that will grow up around the
banks will deprive the people of all property
until their children wake-up homeless on
the continent their fathers conquered."
Doesn't that sound eerily familiar to what
is happening in America today?

An imaginary dialogue not
falling for the Devil's line
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
One of the presenters at a recent confer-
ence I attended pointed out the value of do-
ing your own research.
As human beings, the majority of what
we learn comes from what we hear, usually
what others report as "facts' or "true.'
He cited someone who claimed that 89%
of the people believed a certain way.
He went to the source of the "fact" that


was quoted and found they had gotten it
from another source.
He checked that source, which led to an-
other source.
That source led him to the author of the
number who really hadn't done any research
at all, and "in his opinion...."
What came presented as solid informa-
tion was really rooted in opinionated sourc-
es.
My ears perk up when someone says
"The Bible is very clear on that!" or "Jesus
said...."
The devil tempts Eve in the Garden of
Eden by asking her about not eating the for-
bidden fruit and says to her "Did God really
say that?"
As a matter of fact, He did, but Eve will
not stand her ground or check with God
once again.
She succumbs (Genesis 3:1 ff).
When the devil makes up his own rea-
sons, Eve accepts them; he speaks for God
and pretends to know why God would make
such a rule.
The world might be a different place to-
day if the conversation went like this: Devil
-"Did God really say' you must not eat from
any tree in the garden?'."
Eve "Let me check with Him and get
back with you!" Devil -
"You will not surely die, for God knows
that your eyes will be open and you will be
like God."
Eve-" I'm not sure about God's reasons
for forbidding the fruit from that tree I'll


check it out and see what He has to say.
Maybe He has another reason!"
The devil would have left in disgust;
maybe we would have avoided a lot of prob-
lems!
When people don't do their homework
about getting involved in wars or where the
money is going to come from, or just how
we're going to resolve an issue with some-
one we love; we're on the path to what may
be a very slippery slope.
The problem of not listening with a criti-
cal ear opens the way to being victimized, to
being led down a wrong path, to all sorts of
wild ideas and behavior.
Lots of people would have been saved
from loss, grief or hardships if they remem-
bered "If it sounds too good to be true, it
probably is!"
Every now and again, there is that little
voice inside that says "something isn't right
about this..." and causes me to re-think.
It helps keep me out of trouble: I try to
listen.
I've found that is someone or something
is "on the level" checking out the situation
will be welcomed.
Beware of those who say "Because I said
so!" or "Just take it on faith!"
There may be much, much more to it
than meets the eye!

Goodwill Store to Open


on Friday, July 31


Clewiston- One month after closing
its previous Clewiston store, Goodwill In-
dustries of Southwest Florida is opening a
much larger location on Friday, July 31 in
the Clewiston Town Center (969 W. Sugar-
land Hwy.). Goodwill will cut the ribbon on
the new retail and donation center at 8:45
a.m. with help from the Clewiston Cham-
ber of Commerce, and the store will open
at 9:00 a.m.
Visitors to the weekend Grand Open-
ing celebration will have the opportunity
to win a $100 shopping spree, along with
other prizes. The Pig In or Pig Out cook-
ing team will be on hand to sell lunch and
early dinner on Friday, and will also pro-
vide complimentary sweet tea to custom-
ers during dining hours. In addition, people
who donate to Goodwill over the weekend
will receive an added discount.
At 16,000 square feet, the Clewiston
Town Center Goodwill is approximately
four times larger than the previous Clewis-
ton Goodwill location. In addition to a
larger sales floor and more merchandise,
the store will also serve as a processing
and salvage hub for Goodwill's operations
in Southwest Florida. In total, Goodwill has
hired 20 employees to work at the new
store.
The new Goodwill location will feature


a Job-Link center, providing career training,
job placement help, and family strength-
ening assistance for the community. Bob
Haenggi, Vice President of Goodwill's
Career Development Services, explains:
"The unemployment rate here in South-
west Florida shows that the demand for
Goodwill's Career Development and Job-
Link services is continually growing. Our
assistance is needed now more than ever
to help Southwest Floridians in stabilizing
their lives."
Goodwill's larger store is part of the
agency's efforts to expand its reach in Hen-
dry and Glades counties. A Goodwill hous-
ing complex is under construction in La-
Belle, and is expected to open by Fall, and
other projects are in the planning stages for
both Clewiston and LaBelle.
Goodwill Industries of Southwest Flori-
da, Inc. serves Hendry, Glades, Lee, Collier
and Charlotte counties. Revenue earned
at Goodwill's 24 Southwest Florida thrift
stores supports programs and services for
people with disabilities and other disad-
vantages. Programs include career training
and placement services, income-sensitive
housing for people with disabilities and
senior citizens, and youth mentoring pro-
grams.

Hygiene argument leads to felony arrest


Spat over nail clippings
lands one in jail

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON-Many domestic violence
cases throughout the country oftentimes
involve alcohol, drug use, or arguments
about money.
In one recent case in Clewiston, a fight
broke out following an argument about nail
clippings, according to the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office.
The incident happened Monday, July 20
on Shane Street in Clewiston.
According to the arrest report, Steven
McGillivary, 21, had reportedly been cutting
his nails inside the home while lying down


on a bed.
Charles Kincaid, 58, told officers he saw
the suspect collect the shorn nails on his
shirt and, when the man got up from the
bed, Kincaid saw the nails fall on top of the
couch.
"At this time, a verbal argument broke
out between both parties due to the nails
falling on top of the couch," wrote Deputy
Julio Perez in his arrest report.
Kincaid told deputies McGillivary hit him
multiple times with his fists. McGillivary's
mother tried to intervene and break up the
fight, the report continues. The brawl re-
portedly ended when Kincaid threatened to
call law enforcement.
That's when the McGillivary reportedly
fled from the scene.
Law enforcement officials arrived to
find Kincaid suffering from wounds on his


face, a swollen mouth with dried blood, a
laceration to the top of his forehead and a
swollen right eye. The man was also hold-
ing a broken tooth in his right hand, and a
bite mark was clearly imprinted on his left
palm.
He said he wished to press charges and
refused medical treatment at the scene.
With a B.O.L.O. issued on the vehicle,
deputies caught up with McGillivary at the
intersection of Sonora and Francisco Street.
He was transported to the LaBelle jail on
a charge of aggravated battery with bodily
harm or disability on Monday, July 20.
McGillivary allegedly told deputies that
he was the one who was initially battered
and fought back in defense.

Tourist Development Council Receives Tourism Grant


LaBelle VISIT FLORIDA, the state's offi-
cial source for travel planning, has awarded
a Marketing Grant to the Hendry County
Tourist Development Council for the 2009-
2010 Fiscal Year, which began July 1, 2009.
"The purpose of these grants is to help
non-profit entities and local governments
stretch their tourism marketing dollars in
an effort to expand cultural, heritage, rural
and nature tourism activities in Florida," said
Chris Thompson, President & CEO for VISIT


FLORIDA.
"We were pleased that VISIT FLORIDA
and the Florida Commission on Tourism
selected us from among a large number
of grant applicants, during their most com-
petitive grant cycle to date," said Ron Zim-
merly, Executive Director. "These funds will
be used for marketing the Ronald McDon-
ald House Charity Rodeo and the Southern
States Bull Riding National Finals to be held
in January 2010, which will help us better


position and market Hendry County as a de-
sirable destination."
VISIT FLORIDA, a private/public partner-
ship, is the Florida Commission on Tourism's
day-to-day operating corporation.
The Hendry County Tourist Development
Council was created in 2000 and is funded
entirely with bed tax revenue, which is used
to market and promote Hendry County.

In their outline of the project to local
municipalities, Goodwill Industries expects
to create construction employment over a
10- to 12-month period. The facility will also
require part-time staff for management and
maintenance.
News of the project has already been met
by encouraging commitments at the city and
county levels.
"We applaud and support your efforts
and hope you are successful in this venture,"
wrote Don Gutshall, Clewiston interim city
manager, in a letter of support to the com-
pany in June. "Besides our organization
promoting this potential new project to the
elderly of our community, we will continue
to assist and support your organization as
you move forward."
The county has also signed on, voting to
provide a matching contribution of $140,000
($10,000 per unit) at their July 14 meeting.
The project is in its early stages, and the
company will not know until later this year,
most likely in the fall, whether it will receive
the grant funding.
If it is awarded the funding, and the proj-
ect progresses according to plans, construc-
tion should begin in the fall of 2010 and ten-
ants will be able to move in to the units in
the fall of 2011.

Project H.O.PE.
Sometimes when a disaster is over and
you are just beginning to get back on your
feet, you discover you still do not have the
ability to repair or rebuild your home with-
out some help. After Tropical Storm Fay, you
may have been able to repair or rebuild but
things are just not the same.
Anxiety or just feeling the blues is com-
mon. Talking really helps... getting con-
nected with available resources really helps!
Project H.O.P.E. is a FEMA funded program
managed by the State of Florida.

traveling north on S.R. 29.

vehicle struck the man, although no descrip-
tion of that vehicle is given. That vehicle is
said to have collided with the bicyclist as it
traveled south on S.R. 29.
"Hopefully, someone will see this, it will
jog their memory and we'll get new infor-

for."
