Clewiston Tigers: Rally for a good cause


Members of the Clewiston Tigers football team represented Clewison in full force, as they
had a splendid time at the July 28 Rally Against Violence finale in Belle Glade.


'Tending to the division'


Forbes to residents:
"Thank you"
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- Many years
ago, Dr. James Forbes and one
of the hospital administrators,
a "tough ol' gal," simply came
to the understanding that they
would lock horns.
He treated her and once had
her sent to the hospital when
her blood pressure had shot up.
It was there that Dr. Forbes saw
a thing which shook him and
despite a memory that now and
then is lost in a small fog -- he still
remembers the moment.
"While I was talking to her,
she started a sentence and
couldn't finish it. She had a stroke
and never said another word after
that."
She had a nice home in


Clewiston, and Dr. Forbes made
it a point to visit her each month,
never failing to drive to make the
appointments with his old friend.
He checked her blood pressure
and communication was limited
to the expression of her eyes.
She died four years after her
stroke, but Dr. Forbes never forgot
about that day in the hospital.
"I had to just sit there and
watch that lady's brain deterio-
rate right in front of me. It was the
most helpless feeling in my life.
She never said another word."

45 years
In Dr. Forbes' life, his occupa-
tion saw him constantly tending
to the division between life and
death. A doctor's role in a com-
munity is clear, and about that
much Dr. Forbes was always cog-
nizant.
Like the 5,000 residents of the


West Indies he would treat at the
peak of the sugarcane season, Dr.
Forbes' work was steeped in hard
labor the differences between
back-bending beneath the sun in
the fields, and the slow-marching
hours in the clinic being slight.
After nearly 45 years of pri-
vate practice and work at the lo-
cal hospital, he is one of the old
staples of the community. He has
helped those who were sick get
better, or helped to comfort those
who became too ill, and did not
get better.
During his residency, Dr.
Forbes arrived at the county hos-
pital in Jacksonville expecting to
be one of 24 interns. The fact was
that there were only eight.
"I'm gonna get three times
as much experience as I would
have," the young doctor thought.
And so started a long career

shooting

Four-year-old in the
area when shots were
reported fired
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON -- A man was ar-
rested in July after police say he
confronted the victim at his home,
opening fire when the victim tried
to run inside his home.
A four-year-old child was in the
immediate area when the scuffle
broke, and investigators report
she could have been injured when
several bullets were fired into the
home.
Desmond Ingram, 25, of
Clewiston, faces multiple charges,
including aggravated assault with
a weapon, firing missile into dwell-
ing, and cruelty toward child -- act
that could result in physical or
mental injury.
The incident happened July 20,
at approximately 8:30 p.m., in the
area of 7th Court.
According to the arrest report,
witnesses said that a number of
individuals arrived at the home of
the victim, Freddie Clarence Dixon,
and an altercation started in the
yard.
One of those individuals is re-
ported to be the suspect. Witnesses

Forbes
Continued From Page 1

filled with longer days; One that until much
recently, he had detested thinking about giv
ing up.
During his career, he treated everyone
from U.S. Sugar executives to residents of
much meager means, and he enjoyed his
calling.
He rallied younger doctors to resist the
notion that they must not take personal in-
terests in their patient's lives and poured his
all into his work. He may have done so for-
ever, but it was not meant to be.

"Decision was made for me"
Eventually, the effects of his profession
were becoming clear.
"It started bang like that, and it ended
bang like that. One day you have more work
to do than three doctors can do, and the next
day, you have nothing to do. I found myself
becoming depressed."
It was after one of those "dog-tired"
nights last year, July 16 to be precise, when
the doctor did not make it in to the office the
next day.
"I went to bed that night and, physiologi-
cally, I was about 55 or 60 years old. That
was in my own mind. When I woke up the
next morning, I had the mentality of an 80-
year-old person and the physical ability of an
80-year-old person."
Like the friend he cared for until the end,
the doctor had suffered a stroke. Today, Dr.
Forbes has lost half his vision in both eyes
as a result of the stroke, and although he
can make out the words in a book, he has
trouble making sense of prose. He still reads
medical journals, but prefers to stick to the
summaries of the findings rather than trek
through the hard details.
But it is his memory that has suffered.
The stroke has left it fragmented, and asked
what his mind veers to during his quieter
moments of reflection, he shares that there
is much that he still considers.
"I think about what happened ten years
ago, 20 years ago. I can't remember what
happened yesterday, but I can remember
what happened back then."
He continues to make progress and takes
his medicines daily, like any good doctor,
and surprises his wife when he remembers
things that even she had forgotten.
"I think it was God slowing me down.


I was real tired and I had a bad siege for a
couple of months. I just had more work to
do than I could do and I didn't know how
to walk away from it. When I woke up and
realized I had had a stroke and I could still
think, I felt like God, he was protecting me.
He got me out of the trap I was in."

A new morning in Maine
Taken as a whole, each day of his de-
cades of medical practice, Dr. Forbes' wife
might sum it all up clearer than even the
doctor himself: He would leave his home
well before the sun would set in the sky,
leaving many times before 5 a.m., and often
would not return until late in the evening.
But she did not keep him from doing
what he loved.
"I could have asked him (to retire), but
it wouldn't have done any good. When you
live in a small town like this, and everybody
knows you, he couldn't tell anybody no. He
never told anybody no. He may have been
very, very tired, but he'd always go."
Even at her friends' constant urging, Mrs.
Forbes rarely knew if they were attending
that latest social event until the last minute
because of her husband's work.
The hours in between their encounters
could have been enough to drive a wedge
into their relationship, but somehow, the
Forbes made do with the pace of their lives.
"Don't misunderstand me, we've had our
problems, every married couple does, but
we came through it. Alot of times, you would
think that living such separate lives, him at
the hospital, me here with the children, that
when it came down to being just the two of
us here together, we wouldn't know what to
do. But we know what to do."
She loves him. And that much is clear.
"He's my husband. He's a very caring
person, sincere. He tells it like it is, and he
puts his patients first."
They married when she was 17, and he
was 18; Sharing the experience of medical
school, and the Air Force, settling down in
Clewiston from Ocala, raising their children,
and growing old together.
So now they must take up the plan of
growing older together.
Mrs. Forbes drives him everywhere they
go now, although the doctor stresses that if
"push comes to shove," he could drive just
as well. They enjoy the simple things: He
hunts and fishes, and they are ashamed to
say they aren't the types to travel the world.
They return frequently to a spot in Maine
instead of venturing elsewhere. Although


they've been there many times, the doctor
still looks forward to seeing another morn-
ing in Maine.
He is sure he will.
Despite his physical condition, and with
his wife by his side, he assures: "To me, any
way, this past year has been the best year of
my life."

"Thank you"
On Monday, the second day of his retire-
ment, the doctor pondered what it felt like
not to work.
"Actually, it feels pretty good," he said.
He remains grateful to the community,
saying a simple "thank you" to all those who
ever knew him and trusted him enough to
have him provide for their care.
Least of all no one should feel sorry for
Dr. Forbes, since it is clear by the manner,
and with what excitement he relays stories,
that he has led a full life.
If he knew it were all to end tomorrow,
he wouldn't lose any sleep over it.
"I don't fear death at all. Not in the slight-
est."
He still has the option of renewing his
medical license when it expires in January,
and has thought about whether he should
so he can watch over the people who are
closest to him.
"If I have to go through whole lot of trou-
ble, I won't."
He regrets that he may be one of the last
symbols of the medicine he once had a ro-
mantic notion of pursuing. In his later years,
he noted how doctors were changing amid
the confusion of technology. Medicine today
is much more impersonal, he laments.
"Occasionally, these young doctors, oc
casionally they'd come and ask me some-
thing, but they were reluctant to do it. That's
just pride. That's alright, it didn't bother me
at all. I understand it."
And the doctor's memory is strong.
With his last days as a doctor drawing to
a close, Dr. Forbes remembered one of his
old classmates.
Drawing on the speech General Douglas
MacArthur delivered before a joint session of
Congress in 1951, as his own military career
finished -- "Old soldiers never die; they just
fade away" -- Dr. Forbes thinks about his old
friend and what he would say, and smiles
widely in repeating it.
"Old doctors never die," he says. "They
just smell that way."

Athletes Advantage gets Clewiston Tigers up to speed

Key improvements made by
players in overall l
conditioning .1 _i


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON For the past two months,
the Clewiston Tigers have been working dili-
gently in the weight room in anticipation of
the upcoming football season.
Short on finances, Clewiston head coach
Joe Roth decided to use his team's time
wisely this summer.
Instead of traveling to camps, like most
teams in the state took advantage of this
summer, Clewiston brought summer camp
to its hometown.
Enter Athletes Advantage, a well-respect-
ed fitness organization based in Wellington.
Since June 8, the fitness firm had been
traveling west to Clewiston twice a week in
efforts to improve the speed and condition-
ing of the Tigers football players.
Suffice to say, it has provided a much-
needed boost to a program that seems to be
lacking in depth this upcoming season.
In short, Athletes Advantage has given
Clewiston somewhat of an edge come the
beginning of football season, which is on
Aug. 28.
That came in a series of multidirectional
drills, with several of the 20-30 exercises us-
ing cones to help the Clewiston players im-
prove in their agility, speed, positioning and
form, to name a few.
"Clewiston really came together as a
team and I think that helps a lot," said Erica
Goldstein, who's a coach with Athletes Ad-
vantage.
"Physically, they were already good,
but they took advantage of the experience
we provided them to enhance their tech-
niques."
Clewiston engaged in two days of testing
provided by Athletes Advantage, with the
first one coming on June 8 it was simply
an indicator of what the 34 players needed
to do this summer to improve their speed,
strength and conditioning.
By the second and final day of test-
ing, which came on Wednesday, July 29, it
seemed as if many of the Clewiston players
were fired up and ready to run faster than
they did earlier this summer.


INI/Naji Tobias
Clewiston Tigers lineman Willie Huggins was timed by Athletes Advantage co-owner Sean Benavides at 4.82 in the 40
yard dash in this shot. Speed, strength and conditioning tests were held on Wednesday, July 29 at the Clewiston Tigers
Fieldhouse practice facility.


That was particularly the case of Damian
Smith, an incoming senior wide receiver/de-
fensive back.
Touted by coaches as perhaps the best
overall skill position player for the Class of
2010, Smith was clocked in the 40-yard dash
at 4.49 seconds the fastest time of the entire
team.
"Damian was the fastest on our team last
year," Roth said of Smith.
"He's done all that he needed to do to
break the 4.5 time. Damian's been running
track the last three years and when he works
out, all he focuses on is getting better."
Roth, who doesn't publicly give out in-
dividual accolades much unless absolutely
necessary, is basically a team-first coach
who'll speak on behalf of the entire team
unit.
He was proud to say that of the 34 play-
ers who tested, 24 of them improved their 40
times by one-tenth of a second.
And 16 of those 24 who made gains in
the 40 bettered their times by at least two-
tenths of a second.
"It's going to make our team a whole lot
better," Roth said.
"We had a lot of gains as far as speed
goes. Everyone improved their speed from


the beginning of the summer."
It must be noted that the team's overall
confidence received a huge boost last week,
in part to a surprise appearance by Miami
Dolphins cornerback and Clewiston alum
Eric Green.
Working out on his own runs in prepa-
ration for the Dolphins training camp and
preseason, Green requested not to be inter-
viewed regarding this story.
However, Green did take the time out
of his schedule to watch the workouts and
spend some quality time with the players
and coaches while out on the Clewiston
practice field.
"Eric Green has always got an open invi-
tation to come and stop by," Roth said of the
Dolphins cornerback.
"He's a role model for the kids. Eric
teaches them everything that's needed to
make the right choices in life and he's a liv-
ing testament of that."
The next two fastest overall 40 times
came from incoming junior Shomori Butler
(4.65 seconds) and incoming senior running
back Chris Herring (4.66 seconds).
The most surprising 40 time perhaps was
recorded by incoming senior offensive/de-
fensive lineman Willie Huggins, who was


reportedly clocked in at an average of 4.9
seconds he ran a 4.82 40 time in one run
last Wednesday.
The speed and conditioning drills were
provided by Athletes Advantage, while the
weightlifting sessions were handled by Roth
and his coaching staff.
The full results of the summer workouts
were not released by Roth or Athletes Ad-
vantage.
Nevertheless, Athletes Advantage officials
believe Clewiston should be able to hold
their own throughout the 2009 season, pro-
vided they continue to support each other.
"We did everything we could to prepare
them for the upcoming season," said Sean
Benevides, who's a co-owner of Athletes
Advantage.
"Across the board, the players made great
strides as a team and Coach Roth is going to
be proud of how far they've come along this
summer."
Fall practices begin on Monday, Aug. 10,
with two-a-day workout sessions slated to
occur on the first full week (Aug. 10-14).

Hill Foundation donates $250,000 toward hospital


BELLE GLADE-The Howard E. Hill Foun-
dation, created by one of Belle Glade's own

The North American Migration Count in
Florida is sponsored by Florida Ornithologi-
cal Society, and is supported by local Audu-
bon Societies, local bird clubs, and other
interested organizations.
PURPOSE: The mission of the North
American Migration Count (NAMC) is to:
Obtain a "snapshot" of the progress and
"shape" of spring and fall Migration; Obtain
information on the abundance & distribution
of each species; Initiate more participation
among birders within a state and between
states; Create challenges and goals among
birders while collecting useful information;
Aid in organization and centralization of
date; Have Fun.
Area of Count: The area of a count is not
a circle, but the boundaries of a County. The
idea is to have a contiguous interlocking
set of non-overlapping counts across North
America. It is desirable to get as much of
each county surveyed as resources permit.
if new teams need to be assigned to a
sector in future counts.
Results of NAMC: Florida NAMC data
will be posted to the FOS web side with cur-
rent and prior years' data being presented.
This is being accomplished through the hard
work of Steve Bankert, Web Master for FOS.

The First Seminole War


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The large boat sat heavily in the brown,
tannic waters as it moved sluggishly against
the currents of the Apalachicola River.
Blue water sailors, who were accus-
tomed to the broad, open sea cursed the
river's relentless current as they poled and
rowed the unwieldy craft up the confined,
serpentine waters.
Soldiers on board laughed and joked
among themselves, while children watched
the rivers shoreline with adventurous eyes.
Female passengers sat contentedly, pre-
paring noon time meals until a deer or bear
appeared on the opposite shore, and then
their excited voices rose, filling the air as
they shouted for the children to look.
The day had been long and the passen-
gers were weary as the boat neared its final
destination, Fort Scott.
Just one mile from the fort, a sharp bend
in the river meet the approaching boat with
a surging current, forcing the helmsman to
steer for the opposite shore.
The boat slowly responded and inched its
way to the far shore, where death patiently
stalked.
A murderous volley filled the air as mus-
ket fire from Indians and blacks swept across
the boat.
Standing sailors were pitched into the
black waters as bullets tore through their
bodies.
Children fell silent, while the shrieks of
the dying rose above the thunderous mus-
ket fire.
This fictitious story is based on a tragic
event that took place in the Florida wilder-
ness.
It is time to take "A Walk in The Past" and
read about the First Seminole Indian war.
In 1816, the U.S. Army and hundreds of
friendly Creeks meet with an American flo-
tilla (two gunboats and two schooners) at
the Negro Fort, which was located 15 miles
upstream on the Apalachicola River.
The Blacks and Indians at the fort saw the
American forces as an imminent threat and
attacked.
The final outcome of the battle was deter-
mined when "hot shot" (Cherry red heated
canon ball) fired from a gunboat struck the
powder magazine in the fort.
The powder kegs ignited and setoff a
great explosion within the fort that killed ap-
proximately 300 persons.
The fort's black leader, Garson and a
Choctaw Indian Chief were captured.
They were tortured to death by the
friendly Creeks under the command of the
Muscogulge chief, William Mclntosh.
Blacks in the area were captured and
later sold to slaveholders in Georgia.
The destruction of the Negro Fort sent a
chilling message to all blacks and hostile In-
dians living in Florida.
Its silent words were far louder and dead-
lier than the great explosion that destroyed
the Negro Fort.
Blacks and Indians alike knew they now
stood at the threshold of a new emerging
Florida and that their fates would rest in the
hands of the Americans.
In 1817, Chief Neamathla of the village


Fowltown, got into a dispute with the com-
mander of Fort Scott over land boundaries.
Fowltown was located in southwestern
Georgia, on the east side of the Flint River.
This land had been ceded by the defeated
Creeks in the Treaty of Fort Jackson to the
United States.
The Miccosukee didn't consider them-
selves Creek and therefore not bound by the
treaty.
They contended that the Creeks never
had the right to cede their lands.
General Gaines sent an Army force of 250
men to take Neamathla captive.
The Americans attacked and were driven
back by the Miccosukee.
The next day the Americans attacked
again and drove the Miccosukee from their
village.
The village was then torched.
President Monroe had once secretly ap-
pointed David Brydie Mitchell as command-
er over the Georgia militia in the Patriot War
that was fought in east Florida.
He was later appointed as the Creek In-
dian agent and was the Indian agent when
Fowltown was attacked.
Mitchell stated in a report to Congress
that Fowltown was the beginning of the First
Seminole Indian War.
One week after the Americans attacked
Fowltown, a boat carrying supplies for Fort
Scott, under the command of Lieutenant
R.W. Scott, was attacked on the Apalachi-
cola River.
There were approximately fifty people on
board the boat, including soldiers, women
and children.
Most of the boats passengers were killed
in the ambush.
One woman survived and was taken
captive, while several men escaped to Fort
Scott.
News of the attack reached Washington.
The Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun
ordered Andrew Jackson to invade Florida.
In 1818, Jackson moved his combined
force of army regulars, Georgia militia and
friendly Creeks to Fort Scott.
Later they marched down the Apalachi-
cola River to the ruins of the Negro Fort and
built a fort adjacent to it called Fort Gadson.
The army then marched to the villages on
Lake Miccosukee.
The Indian villages called Tallahassee and
Miccosukee were burned.
There were over 300 Indian homes de-
stroyed.
This number of homes represented a
large populace when you consider there
were probably six persons living in each
home.
Jackson moved south after he burnt and
destroyed the Indian villages.
He arrived at St. Marks and captured the
Spanish fort.
There he found a Scottish trader called
Alexander George Arbuthnot.
Mr. Arbuthnot was a trader from the Ba-
hamas that traded with the Indians for deer
hides.
He had become a friend to the Indians
and wrote letters to the crown requesting
British intervention against the Americans.

War
Continued From Page 7
Two Indian leaders had been taken pris-
oner prior to Jackson's arrival at St. Marks.
They were captured aboard a British ship
taken by the Americans.
The ships identity had been decoyed by
flying the British flag, the Union Jack.
When Jackson arrived, the Red Stick
leader Josiah Francis and Homathlemico
were brought ashore and hanged.
Jackson then proceeded to the Suwan-
nee River to attack the villages along the
river.
Most were black villages occupied by
runaway slaves.
Some of the runaways living in these vil-
lages had fled the Negro Fort region when
the fort was destroyed in 1816, and resettled
on the Suwannee River.
While marching to the black villages,
Jackson's men discovered a Red Stick vil-
lage on Econfina Creek.
A battle took place and approximately 40
Indians were killed.
Over a hundred Indians were captured
and the female captive taken from the am-
bushed boat a year earlier was rescued.
Also, the scalps of 50 whites were found
and thought to be the scalps taken from pas-
sengers on the boat.
During this time period another British
subject was captured.
Robert Ambrister, a former Royal Marine
and a British agent.
After the destruction of the Red Stick vil-


Subm
Andrew Jackson led a series of advance
early 1800s, including campaigning for t
sentence in the case of two British agen

lage, Jackson moved on to the black villages
along the Suwannee, but found them all
abandoned.
Jackson's major military objectives had
been achieved, so he returned to St. Marks.
A military tribunal convened and the two
captured British subjects were put on trial.
Ambrister and Arbuthnot were accused


of aiding the Seminoles and
encouraging them to make war
on the Americans.
Arbrister threw himself at
the mercy of the court, while
Arbuthnot maintained his in-
nocence.
Both men were sentenced
to be hanged by the military
court, which later relented and
sentenced Arbrister to 50 lashes
and a year of hard labor.
Jackson wasn't happy with
the change and reinstated the
death penalty for Arbrister.
The Bahamian hide trader,
Arbuthnot, was hanged from
the yardarm of his own ship
and Arbrister was shot by a fir-
ing squad.
Jackson then returned to
Fort Gadson where he learned
that the Spanish were supplying
the Indians with arms in Pensa
cola.
itted photo Jackson formed an army
es in the numbering 1,000 and marched
he death to Pensacola.
ts. The Spanish governor of
West Florida claimed that most
of the Indians at Pensacola
were women and children.
He also stated the male Indians were un-
armed, which sounds suspicious.
General Jackson disregarded the Span-
ish governor's messages and continued to
Pensacola.
He attacked the Spanish garrison, forcing
the Spaniards to retreat to Fort Barrancas.


The battle lasted two days and ended
with a Spanish surrender.
After the surrender, Jackson then left Col.
William King as military governor of West
Florida and returned home.

USDA's new Biomass Crop program


Sustainable program will
help meet country's energy
needs

USDA Farm Service Agency Administra-
tor Jonathan Coppess today announced that
biomass conversion facilities can begin sign-
ing up to participate in the Biomass Crop As-
sistance Program, which will help increase
production of renewable energy.
The program, authorized in the 2008 Farm
Bill, provides financial assistance to produc-
ers who deliver eligible material to biomass
conversion facilities and FSA will provide fi-
nancial assistance to collect, harvest, store
and transport eligible materials.
"This program will benefit producers, the
developing biomass industry, the general
public and the environment as we continue
working to expand production and availabil-
ity of renewable energy," said Coppess.
"Owners of eligible material can receive
financial assistance for delivering qualified
biomass to conversion facilities that use bio-
mass for heat, power, bio-based products or
advanced biofuels."
Biomass conversion facilities and mate-
rial owners or producers should contact
their FSA state offices or visit http://www.fsa.
usda.gov/ for more information.
FSA will begin accepting applications
from biomass facilities interested in partici-


pating in the Biomass Crop Assistance Pro-
gram (BCAP).
Once an agreement is signed between
FSA and a facility and funding through the
program is provided, the facilities can begin
accepting materials.
Producers who sell these materials can
apply for matching payments under the col-
lection, harvest, storage and transportation
(CHST) component of BCAP.
The matching CHST payments are paid
at a rate of $1 for $1 per dry ton equivalent
received from a qualified biomass conver-
sion facility, not to exceed $45 per dry-ton
equivalent.
A biomass owner is eligible to receive
payments for two years.
The purpose of the matching payments is
to assist biomass producers with the CHST
cost of delivering biomass to a qualified bio-
mass conversion facility.
For example, if a qualified biomass con-
version facility pays a producer $30 per dry
ton for biomass, the material owner or pro-
ducer would be eligible for a matching pay-
ment of $30 per dry ton from FSA.
This payment will help offset the costs of
CHST.
Biomass conversion facilities may be-
come "qualified" by submitting a Memo-
randum of Understanding (MOU) to the FSA
state offices.
The MOU generally provides the require-
ments for becoming a qualified biomass
conversion facility.


Once a facility becomes qualified, eligible
material owners or producers who deliver
biomass to that facility may be eligible to re-
ceive CHST payments.
Eligible material owners or producers,
who market eligible material to a qualified
biomass conversion facility, may apply for
the matching CHST payment at their FSA
county office.
An application must be submitted before
the eligible material is sold and delivered to
a qualified biomass conversion facility.
After the product is delivered, a producer
must provide FSA with documentation of
product quantity, quality and payment rate.
County offices will validate payment re-
quests with information in the county office
and information provided under the terms
of MOUs with the qualified biomass conver-
sion facilities.
CHST payments will not be authorized
until after an appropriate environmental
analysis has been conducted.
USDA is an equal opportunity provider,
employer and lender.
To file a complaint of discrimination,
write: USDA, Director, Office of Civil Rights,
1400 Independence Avenue, SW, Washing-
ton, DC 20250-9410 or call 800-795-3272
(voice), or 202-720-6382 (TDD).


Trimming Trees

Here are some suggestions to protect
yourself from damage to your trees or
home, or from tree trimmers who may in-
jure themselves while on your property:
Insurance for the tree industry is very
expensive. Companies that give low ball
estimates often do not have sufficient in-
surance coverage. Ask to see a certificate
of insurance, and then call the insurance
company to verify its status. Avoid busi-
nesses that can't show proof of worker's
compensation.
Qualify the business. Look for affili-
ations with trade associations. Some as-
sociations, such as the Tree Care Industry
Association (TCIA) and International So-
ciety of Arboriculture (ISA), offer the in-
dustry accreditation and certification.
Ask if the business has a certified ar-
borist on staff. Improper pruning (such
as tree topping) kills more trees than any
other trimming mistake.
Ask friends and neighbors for recom-
mendations. Check to see if your home
owner's association can provide refer-
ences or referrals.
Ask if the company conducts worker
drug tests regularly.
Make sure the company picks up all
cuttings. Most cities do not pick up brush
left by contractors. This could leave the
home owner open to fines and other
costs.
Don't pay in advance. Only pay when
the job is finished. It is best to pay by cred-
it card or check.


When we open the doors at Lakeside Medical Center, we open a
whole new world of health care for our community.
But along with the new comes experience, expertise, and understanding.
That's because the people who will care for you at Lakeside Medical Center
have years and years of on-the-job knowledge and know-how.
It all adds up to health care that's as good as it gets-and you'll get it
right here at home. _

God of this city
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The youth of my church came back fired
up from a mission trip this summer.
Shortly after they returned, I visited one
of their youth fellowship gatherings.
They played one of the songs they had
experienced during the praise time on the
mission trip, which involved running around
with hands held high in celebration.
One of the youth asked me if I was scared
because of what the mission trip had "done"
to them.
Are you kidding?
Scared because the Spirit of our Lord has
opened their lives up to new found excite-
ment, growth, and freedom?
Could all of us be so scared!
One of their theme songs they adopted
to put "legs" and work to their excitement
is Chris Tomlin's "God of This City": "You're
the God of this city, You're the King of these
people, You're the Lord of this nation, You
Are!"
And they really embrace the vision of the
chorus: "For greater things have yet to come
and greater things are still to be done in this
city. Greater things have yet to come and
greater things are still to be done here."
As a response to the greater things that
are still to be done for God's glory here, our
youth have committed to doing at least 75
hours each of community service this sum-
mer, which has involved everything from
nursing home visits to washing windows,
picking up trash, and delivering cookies.
And they are hungering to reach out even
more to help those with a project or need
they can respond to.
Do you have or know of a project or need
they might help with?
Call 983-5269 and let us know how we
might help you. And why not join us and
look for opportunities to reach out as well?
Could you imagine if we all logged in
75 hours of service to help each other and
those around us?
God would be glorified!
To quote the song again, "For there is no
one like our God!
There is no one like our God! Greater
things have yet to come and greater things
are still to be done in this city.
Greater things have yet to come and
greater things are still to be done here!"
I firmly believe this to be true! God has
great plans in store for us as His people
when we reach out and make a difference
in the lives of those around us and give Him
the praise.

The kid didn't like to go to

church and what adults

taught him
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The little guy who took the family car be-
cause he didn't want to go to Church one
morning was on TV recently with his family.
He said he learned to drive by observing
others drive and then, as the hour for Church


was approaching, got the keys and took off.
The police did not take kindly to his es-
capade but felt he was too young to be
charged.
When asked what was the outcome of
his "adventure", he said he was grounded
for four days; no TV no video games.
He said he won't do it again, too.
I wondered about the "inadvertent learn-
ing" that went on.
He got a trip to New York, was on na-
tional television, was the center of attention
with his fifteen moments of fame, and got to
meet all sorts of exciting people.
Maybe it was a first trip on an airplane,
maybe the first time in a hotel.
The message may have gotten through
about "Don't take the family car" but were
other messages communicated as well?
Was it "If you do something 'creative'
you'll get all sorts of attention?"
One father was angry with his son when
he was caught stealing from a local store
and laid out a list of punishments.
No TV, no friends over, being grounded,
and for good measure he went to the store
manager and told him that he wanted his
son to work there for a month as a volunteer
- to learn just how hard people had to work
and to see the efforts of the store people,
and to learn that the people he betrayed by
his act were real and decent people.
After awhile, the manager told the father
"Your son really is willing to work, and I
can't find anybody as willing, do you mind
if I hire him?"
Wrong lesson! I wonder what would
have happened if somebody stopped to ask
the now-famous seven-year old who took
the car "What is it about Church that you
don't like?"
I've asked that question many times and
have gotten some surprising answers.
One successful business owner told me
that he didn't go to Church because his
mother made him go when he was a kid.
I told him that I was sorry his mother did
such a thing to him!
Others have told me about what they
liked or disliked; and were worth hearing.
Awhile ago when a young person came
to be baptized, I showed her where the
event would be recorded in the Church Ar-
chives and then we went back and looked at
other members of her family that were also
baptized and entered in the records too.
It was a special way for her of realizing
she was now part of a family with others in
her household, God's family.
Finding out why a seven-year old didn't
want to go was a question nobody asked.
They missed something; a possible life-
changing opportunity to listen, learn, teach
and restore.


When men sin
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
It is not one of God's traits to toss compli-
ments around with unthinking levity.
It was a singular compliment, then, that
God said of David, "I have found David, the
son of Jesse, a man after mine own heart"
(Acts 13:22).

Religious
Continued From Page 19

What an apparent variation between the
two David's, the man after God's own heart
and the lustful, deceitful, bloodguilty David
rebuked by Nathan!
At first glance, this latter David looks like
a case of "total depravity" indeed.
But, wait a minute before we pass sen-
tence and consign this man to eternity's
scrap pile.
Yes, there are greatness and nobility
about him even in connection with his hor-
rible sins.
This nobility of character is manifest in
his attitude toward rebuke.
Though a king with power to call for
his executioner and liquidate an insulting
preacher, he chose rather to repent.
He was big enough to become little
enough to say, "I have sinned!"
A man's condemnation or justification is
not dependent upon whether he has sinned,
"for all have sinned" (Romans 3:23); nor
is it contingent upon the magnitude of sin,
for the holy eyes of God have never seen a
small, insignificant sin.
Moreover, all unforgiven sin is payable


by the standard wage scale eternal death.
(Romans 6:23)
Herein is the greatness of David. His at-
titude toward his sin.
He didn't get angry and kill the preacher
as the Jews did Stephen (Acts 7).
And he was not "willing to justify him-
self" as was the lawyer (Luke 10:29).
Nor yet did he try to gloss over his sin and
try to "make it up to God" by some overt act
of worship like King Saul.
After Nathan (thank God for such preach-
ers) leveled an accusing finger at him, he
met the issue honestly, sued for mercy, and
placed on the altar "a broken and contritue
heart", the offering he knew the Lord would
"not despise."
In our age, the Christian age, we are given
the keys to the Kingdom by the Apostle Peter
in Acts 2:38.
After hearing the Gospel, the death, burial
and resurrection of Jesus Christ, the people
on the day of Pentecost cried out, "What
shall we do?"
Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized
(immersed) everyone of you in the name of
Jesus Christ, for the remission of sins, and ye
shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit."
This is how one begins to serve God in
our present dispensation.


NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
ON LEVY OF AN INCREASED
NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENT AND COLLECTION BY
THE UNIFORM METHOD FOR MICCOSUKEE TRAIL,
A PORTION OF THE WASTE SERVICES MUNICIPAL
SERVICES BENEFIT UNIT.

TAKE notice that a public hearing will be held before the Board of County
Commissioners of Hendry County, Florida, at 5:15 p.m. on September 3, 2009, at
the Commission Chambers, Clewiston City Hall, 115 West Ventura Avenue,
Clewiston, Florida, for the purpose of considering the levy of an increased non-ad
valorem waste assessment for properties located on Miccosukee Trail, a portion of
the Waste Services Municipal Services Benefit Unit. The proposed assessment will be
collected by the Tax Collector and the assessment will be collected annually until
terminated. All affected property owners may appear and be heard at the public
hearing and also have the right to file written objections with the Hendry County
Administrator, Post Office Box 2340, LaBelle, Florida 33975, at anytime within 20 days
from the date of this publication.
The following is the non-ad valorem assessment to be presented at the public hear-
ing:
Waste Services Municipal Services Benefit Unit In regard to Miccosukee Trail
The purpose of the non-ad valorem assessment is to provide curbside
waste pickup using a smaller garbage truck to access Miccosukee Trail, which is too
narrow for a standard garbage truck. The amount of the proposed assessment is
$72.00 per livable unit per year. This is in addition to the amounts currently assessed
within the Waste Services Municipal Services Benefit Unit for garbage pickup.
The assessment generates a total of $360.00 in revenue annually for the
purpose described above.

his family members in the yard, including a

Investigator Richard Waldron wrote in his
report.
The investigator recovered at least one of
the projectiles that had traveled clear across
several walls in the home.
Back at the station, at least three witnesses
picked the suspect out from a lineup. Two of
them said the suspect was the shooter, with
the third unable to identify who fired the bul-

the shooting occurred.
The witnesses said the shooter had clear-

home before he fired the bullets.
Investigators caught up with Ingram the
next day, arresting him and transporting him
to the Hendry County Jail for processing.
