Suspect cited tough
economic times
before his arrest

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
He may have been the most
honest persons they've inter-
viewed yet telling Hendry County
Sheriff's Office investigators that
he was growing marijuana be-
cause of the recession.
According to the arrest report
of 45-year-old Alberto Gonzalez,
the man assumed full responsibil-


ity for a sophisticated marijuana
growing operation in his back-
yard.
"He stated that it was time first
time growing the marijuana and
expressed embarrassment and
regret," Investigator Brett Daley
wrote in the report. "Mr. Gar
cia appeared to be truthful in his
speech."
Perhaps because denying the
charge would have been a futile
effort.
With the operation complete,
the sheriff's office recovered 34
pots growing marijuana plants, al-
ready 2.5 to 3.5 feet tall, in a green


storage container, along with a
host of instruments such as 1,000
watt grow lamps, submersible
pumps, electrical timers, an air
conditioner unit, a dozen electrical
transformers, and fertilizers.
Investigators responded to the
home in Montura last Friday, Sept.
8, after a local utility company
alerted them of a possible power
theft.
The company noticed unusual
activity in the vicinity, and located
a power diversion that fed wires
into a container in the backyard of
the residence.
The suspect was not home


at the time and his wife gave in
vestigators consent to search the
premises, according to the arrest
report.
She reportedly told officers
that the container belonged to the
owner of the property, but that the
contents, of which she was un-
aware, belonged to her husband.
"She stated that her husband
comes home from work and be-
gins to work out in the yard," wrote
Investigator Daley. "She stated that
she does not know what her hus-
band does outside the house dur
ing those times."

Sup't: No plans for new school


Superintendent
discusses obstacles

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
There are 670 kids in the outly-
ing areas of Montura.
To some of the parents of
these children, having to watch
the kids get up quite earlier than
their counterparts in other areas
of the county simply to catch the
bus to school is unacceptable.
You might see them, residents
say, with their heads rested on
their books on the road, or brav-
ing the elements -- rain and fog
and sometimes the cold.
The solution, of course, is to
build a school somewhere in the
outlying areas to accommodate
kids in Pioneer, Montura, and stu
dents who live near the reserva-
tion.
But that solution hasn't proven
to be an easy one.
On the other side of the equa-
tion, Superintendent Rick Murphy


said the construction of a new
school, while solving some is-
sues, would raise quite a few new
ones that the district simply isn't
in a position to bear.
"The feasibility of a school in
Montura has been very debatable
for years," said Superintendent
Murphy in a telephone interview
earlier this week. "There defi-
nitely is a need there, if we could
really accommodate it financially.
That's a big key."
The situation is a difficult one,
to be sure.
When he sat as a commission
er on the school board, the district
entertained the notion of build-
ing an elementary school some-
where in the county. According to
him, "everything was booming,"
and commissioners considered
the idea, but ended up pulling it
at the last minute.
The difference today would
have meant an estimated annual
$2 million payment on a loan, the
superintendent said. The district

Pahokee Blue Devils suffers big loss to Dwyer


Glades Central stays
unbeaten, while Moore
Haven loses to Summit
Christian

By Naji Tobias
IN[ Florida
PAHOKEE A relatively close game be-
tween the Pahokee Blue Devils and the Dw-
yer Panthers turned into a blowout.
Though Pahokee lost to Dwyer, 34-6, it
was really a defensive battle throughout the
very hotly contested game.
There wasn't a whole lot of offense for
either team Dwyer outgained Pahokee by
just 14 yards (227-213).
And only three offensive touchdowns
were scored between both teams.
In the end, the difference of the game
was essentially three second half defensive
touchdowns registered by Dwyer two of
which were interceptions.
Down 7-6 in the beginning of the second
half, Pahokee's De'Joshua Johnson threw
his first of two interceptions on just the sec-
ond play of the third quarter.
That miscue proved costly, as Dwyer de-
fensive back Mike Ruiz stepped right in front
of Johnson's pass, caught the ball and raced
15 yards right into Pahokee's end zone.
The interception occurred just over a
minute into the third quarter.
Less than two minutes after that Pa-
hokee got the ball right back after Dwyer's
score to put them up 14-6 -Johnson was
sacked by Dwyer defensive end Curt Maggitt
on a third-and-12 play.
The sack subsequently resulted in a lost
fumble by Johnson, which allowed Maggitt
to run 45 yards into the end zone to extend


Dwyer's lead, 20-6.
Pahokee's offense had yet another op-
portunity to get back in the game.
Unfortunately, Dwyer ended another Pa-
hokee drive on a sack of Johnson from a
third down play a 13-yard loss.
As Pahokee punted the ball the Dw-
yer with 3:36 left in the third, the Panthers
seemed to be on its way to putting away the
game for good.
However, a controversial fumble com-
mitted by Dwyer later in the quarter gave
Pahokee new life.
This was made possible by a 10 yard run
from Dwyer's Gerald Christian, who fum
bled the ball at Pahokee's 20 yard line.
Referees ruled in favor of Pahokee recov-
ering the pigskin at its own 24 with 1:13 left
in the third.
Unfortunately for Pahokee, the last real
chance of coming back ended quite disas-
trously on the ensuing drive.
Pahokee wideout Fred Pickett (five catch-
es, 124 yards, 1 TD), had three of those re-
ceptions on the fateful possession.
Pickett, who hauled in a 56-yard touch-
down catch from Johnson in the first quarter
for a 6-0 lead, caught passes of 39, 10 and
1I yards on the drive to put Pahokee in the
red zone.
But as Pahokee tried to get into the end
zone from the Dwyer 20 on first down, Ruiz
picked off Johnson again with 10:32 left in
the game.
It was over for Pahokee, especially as
Dwyer methodically ate up the clock on of-
fense, while wearing down the vaunted Blue
Devil defense.
Dwyer quarterback Jacoby Brissett, who
in the second quarter threw a 5-yard touch-
down pass to Robert Clark for a 7-6 lead,
sealed the Panthers win on a 4-yard run on a
quarterback keeper with just 4:52 left.


That score put Dwyer up 27-6, with the
game being officially out of reach for Paho
kee.
"Defensively, we did alright," said Paho-
kee Blue Devils defensive end/outside line-
backer Zachary Allen.
"We just could have played better on of-
fense. We laid down at home in this game."
Johnson, who started at quarterback, fin-
ished 12-for-21 passing with 163 yards, one
touchdown and two interceptions.
Emmanuel Perez, who came in for John-
son late in the fourth, threw just six passes
in the game.
But two of them were interceptions one
of which was returned for a Dwyer touch-
down by Shawn McClaine, who zoomed 40
yards into the end zone for a 34-6 lead at the
game's conclusion.
"This was not a game we could make
mistakes in and get away with it," said Pa-
hokee offensive coordinator Jonathan John-
son.
"Offensively, we didn't block and we
dropped the ball. We made a lot of mis-
takes."


Blaze Thompson, the Pahokee Blue Dev-
ils head coach, couldn't agree more.
"The gist of the game is that we turned
the ball over four times," Thompson said of
the loss.
"We allowed two pick-sixes and a fum
ble recovery for a touchdown. You can't
have that happening against a team as good
as Dwyer."
Jack Daniels, Dwyer's head coach, was
thoroughly pleased with his team's efforts in
their win.
"In order for us to win against Pahokee,
we had to limit the big plays from De'Joshua
[Johnson] and Chris [Dunkley]," Daniels
said.
"They kept our coaching staff up all night
the whole week," he continued.
"We knew they can create a lot of match-
up problems on the field, so our defensive
backs had to mix it up on coverage and we
had to score whenever we got the chance
to."
Dunkley, perhaps Pahokee's best overall

Hendry County 4-H
The 4-H year is off to a great start. The
Hendry County 4-H Club Program is a youth
organization for boys and girls ages 5 to 18,
as of September 1, 2009. It is a program de
signed to help youth develop life skills, such
as communication, citizenship, decision
making, leadership, and interpersonal rela
tionships.
Furthermore, 4-H is celebrating 100
years. A century ago in Florida, boys learned
about planting corn and girls discovered
how to grow tomatoes in 4-H clubs. Today
in Hendry County, many youth and adults
grow and work together for positive change
through dozens of projects in 4-H Youth De-
velopment. And, while growing vegetables
still takes place in some 4-H clubs, learning
leadership, citizenship and life skills are the


true missions of the program facilitated by
Hendry County Extension.

yards in the game.
Notes: Dwyer's Matt Elam, one of the
nation's best overall players, had 17 carries
for 103 yards in the win.
Brissett finished 5-for-9 passing with 89
yards and a touchdown, in addition to five
carries for 26 yards and the 4-yard score.
Dwyer (2-1) scored 27 of its 34 points off
Pahokee's five turnovers all of which hap-
pened in the second half.
Dwyer, who dropped out of the Rivals 100
national rankings after a 21-7 loss to Glades
Central in Week 1, re-enters the poll at No.
48.
Pahokee (2-1), which came into the game
as the Rivals100 No. 16 team in the nation,
dropped to No. 59.
Dwyer, the Beef O' Brady's No. 14 team
in the state coming into this game, moved
up three spots to No. 11.
Pahokee, who was No. 4 last week,
moved down 11 spots to No. 15 in the state
this week.

That means Glades Central's top four
receivers with Walford being the tight end
- made a significant contribution in the vic-

mains as the team's brightest spot.
Hall scored two rushing touchdowns and
registered 141 yards on the ground with 28
carries.
Keonte White, who added 19 carries for
126 yards, was 3-for-12 passing for 21 yards,
with one touchdown and one interception.
White's touchdown pass was to Hunter
Ward in the first quarter a 12-yard pass to
put Moore Haven up 6-0.
A failed two point conversion run after
the score may have been the difference in
this game.
Moore Haven's secondary allowed two
touchdown passes from Summit Christian
quarterback Chris Wimer, who also scored
the game-winning score on a 1-yard run in
the fourth quarter.
Fortunately for Moore Haven, Hall record-
ed a milestone, as he now stands statistical-
ly as one of the top overall running backs in
the state, according to MaxPreps Florida.
After three games, Hall has 70 carries for
590 yards and 13 overall touchdowns.
The 13 touchdowns puts Hall as the No.
1 scorer in the state as of Week 3, according

A Walk in the Past: The story of the Treaty of Fort Gibson


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum Director
In 1832, the Treaty of Payne's Landing
(treaty to relocate Seminoles in the west)
was signed by Seminole leaders and United
States officials. However, the treaty wasn't
binding, but contingent upon reports made
by a special delegate of Seminoles that
would travel to the Creek reservation in
Arkansas Territory and appraise new land.
The stipulations of the treaty would go into
effect, only if the land was approved by the
Seminole Nation. The Seminole people
would then have three years from the date
the treaty was signed to prepare and relo-
cate to their new homeland in the west.
The Seminole delegates had scheduled
to leave for the western lands in July, after
the Green Corn Dance, but were delayed
until October. They arrived in the Arkansas
Territory in December and were greeted by
barren lands, covered in a cold winter world
of white. The party spent three months in
the territory, waiting on government com-
missioners, who arrived in March. During
this time they explored the land and got to
known their Creek brethren.
Prior to returning to Florida, the Semi-
nole delegates were asked to meet with
the commissioners and sign a document at
Fort Gibson, which was located in the Ar
kansas Territory. The document's wording
was precise. A brief paragraph reads, "and
the undersigned Seminole chiefs, delegated
as aforesaid, on the behalf of their nation
hereby declare themselves well satisfied
with the location provided for them by the
Commissioners, and agree that their nation
shall commence the removal to their new
home, as soon as the Government will make
arrangements for their emigration, satisfac
tory to the Seminole nation." The document
was called the Treaty of Fort Gibson or the
Additional Treaty.
Needless to say, the Seminole delegates
failed to get a hero's welcome when they
arrived back home. The Seminole people
were enraged at the news and ridiculed the
delegates for allowing the Americans to pull
the wool over their eyes. Seminole delegates
defended their dignity, explaining they had
been forced to sign the document and were
not told its true meaning. We will probably
never know what really transpired at Fort
Gibson, but can only speculate.
These are questions that must be asked:
(1) Why did the United States government
send Seminole delegates out west in the
dead of winter to approve the exchange of
warm, sunny Seminole lands in Florida for
the cold, barren western lands? The concept
at first sounds ludicrous, but what if it was
all part of a treacherous plan to get the del-
egates to sign a document they didn't fully
understand? (2) Why would seven Semi-
nole delegates sign a document that would
impact the entire Seminole Nation without
first consulting the Seminole people? The
delegates knew they had never been given
this authority by the Seminole Nation and to
act without it could mean death.
Many historians believe the Treaty of
Paynes's Landing was muddied by the White
Houses's political agenda. The Jackso-
nian Administration wanted the Seminoles
moved west at all cost because they saw no
alternative way to deal with the complex,


Seminole Indian problem. The ole quote,
"out of sight and out of mind" more or less
summed up this philosophy.
Historians also believe there were people
of dubious character that sped the treaty
process along. Indian agent, John Phagan
was said by some to be a man of question
able character. In 1832, acting Florida Gov-
ernor, James D. Westcott, conducted an
investigation of Phagan's stewardship, while
the trusted Indian agent, with his Seminole
delegate was returning home from their trip
out west. Evidence of fraud and improper
conduct were found.
Governor Westcott garnished Phagan's
wages to recoup embezzled money that
Phagan was accused of taking and later had
him removed from office. In all fairness,
there are those that think Phagan was set up
by certain political adversaries he cultivated
during his flowering career.
It is strange that federal and state gov-
ernment officials felt Phagan was a man
of questionable character and not deemed
trustworthy to maintain his honorable post
as an Indian agent yet, they honored and pro-
claimed the Fort Gibson treaty that Phagan
had helped facilitate as legal and binding.
The Seminole delegates stated many times
to government officials that Phagan was de
vious and had taken unscrupulous measures
at their expense to secure their signatures on
the document.
Was Phagan a chameleon of question-
able character that walked like a duck,
quacked like a duck and looked like a duck
during the Treaty of Fort Gibson negotia
tions? We will never really know for certain,
but it is probably safe to say that our state
and federal governments will never have a
shortage of ducks.
Indian agent Phagan, left an empty of-
fice seat that needed to be filled quickly,
and Jackson had just the man. In 1833, he
appointed Wiley Thompson, a man who
had served with him during the Creek War.
Thompson's experience as a major general
of the Georgia Militia from 1817 to 1824,
and later a Georgia politician in the House
of Representatives, made him an excellent
choice. Jackson's and Thompson's political
views and their mutual understanding of In-
dian affairs put them in agreement with one
another.
In 1833, President Jackson submitted the
Treaty of Payne's Landing and the Treaty of
Fort Gibson to the Senate. On April 8, 1834,
the Treaty of Paynes's Landing was ratified.
The stipulations in the Treaty of Paynes
Landing now called for the removal of the
Seminoles from Florida three years from
the date it was signed, which was 1832. The
western lands had met the approval of the
Seminoles on paper only. The document
was questionable, but legal in a court of law.
The United States government now had only
a year left to prepare and move the Semi-
noles from their beloved La Florida.
Thompson's decision to take the job as
Indian agent in Florida came at a very bad
time. He had the full responsibility of relo-
cating the Seminoles to the Arkansas Terri-
tory, which was a nightmare alone, when
one considers the logistics involved in trans-
porting thousands of people, thousands of
miles.
The hostile Seminoles were his greatest
challenge. They had been subjected to the


laws of the United States, since it purchased
Florida from Spain in 1819 and legally took
possession in 1821. The Seminole's hopes
for lasting peace with the young nation were
shattered when one year later the Treaty of
Moultrie Creek was signed. The treaty forced
them to cede all their lands in exchange for
inferior lands the United States set aside for
them as reservations.
Reservation life wasn't a good experience
for the Seminoles, nor was their new neigh-
bors, the Americans. The Seminoles had ac-
cumulated fifteen years of disappointment
and bitterness and now doggedly refused
to leave Florida. Their agenda to stay and
Thompson's agenda to remove them soon
put Thompson and the Seminoles at odds.
Thompson had several meetings with the
Seminole chiefs at Fort King, (near present
day Ocala) where he stayed. The meetings
always became hostile because the Indians
contested the Treaty of Fort Gibson, declar-
ing it illegal. They would also bring up the
Treaty of Moultrie Creek that was ratified in
1833, repeating the article that guaranteed
them the right to live on the reservation
lands for twenty years.
During the meetings, Thompson was in-
terrupted by some of the younger Seminole
men with groans, violent gestures and abu-
sive language. The older chiefs were more
courteous to Thompson because they had
seen the consequences of the First Seminole
War and longed for peace. The younger
men saw only the injustices done to their
nation and perceived violence and war as a
means to end their suffering at the hands of


the Americans.
The hostilities between the Seminoles
and Thompson continued to grow. Thomp
son noticed that the Seminoles were pur
chasing far more powder and ball than was
needed to sustain their hunting. He reported
his findings to his superiors, but received no
marching orders. Thompson grew increase
ing concerned about the purchases and fi
nally banned their sale to the Seminoles.
The Indians were inflamed when told
they could no longer purchase powder and
ball. The legendary Osceola was reported to
have said, "Am I a negro, a slave? My skin is
dark, but not black. I am an Indian -a Semi
nole. The white man shall not make me
black. I will make the white man red with
blood; and then blacken him in the sun and
rain, where the wolf shall smell of his bones,
and the buzzard live upon his flesh."

A Breast Cancer Awareness Month


By Glenda Wilson
Many women (and men too) have their
yearly mammograms marked and sched
uled on their calendars.
However, for those who do not, Hendry
Regional Medical (HRMC) wants to remind
you that October is National Breast Cancer
Awareness Month, and it's right around the
corner.
Take this time to care you're your health;
read some facts about breast cancer, taken
from the American Cancer Society and the
Centers for Disease Control, and schedule
your mammogram.
Aside from non-melanoma skin cancer,
breast cancer is the most common form of
cancer in women.
White women have a higher incidence of
breast cancer than African American wom-
en after age 40.
In contrast, African American women
have a higher incidence rate before age 40
and are more likely to die from breast can-
cer at every age. (Breast cancer is the num-
ber one cause of cancer death in Hispanic
women.)
There are different types of breast cancer.
The kind of breast cancer depends on which
cells in the breast turn into cancer.
Breast cancer can begin in different
parts of the breast such as the ducts or the
glands.
According to the latest statistics from the
American Cancer Society, approximately
40,460 women in the United States were ex-
pected to die from breast cancer in 2007.
Lung cancer was the only type of cancer
anticipated to cause more cancer deaths in
women.
Also, about 2,030 cases of breast cancer
were expected to occur among men, ac
counting for about 1% of all breast cancers.


This means that approximately 450 men
were expected to die from breast cancer
during the year 2007.
The National Cancer Institute estimates
that approximately 2.4 million women with
a history of breast cancer were alive in Janu-
ary 2004.
Most of these women were cancer-free,
while others still had evidence of cancer and
may have been undergoing treatment.
The 5 year relative survival rate is slightly
lower among women diagnosed with breast
cancer before age 40 (82%) compared to
women diagnosed at ages 40 and older
(89%).
Tumors diagnosed in younger women
may be more aggressive and less responsive
to treatment.

Mammograms
A mammogram is an X-ray of the breast.
Mammograms are the best method to detect
breast cancer early, when it is easier to treat
and before it is big enough to feel or cause
symptoms.
Having regular mammograms can lower
the risk of dying from breast cancer.
If you are age 40 years or older, you
should have a screening mammogram ev-
ery one to two years.
Talk to your doctor if you have any breast
symptoms or changes in your breast, or if
breast cancer runs in your family.
You may be instructed to have mam-
mograms before age 40 or more often than
usual.
Preliminary results from a large clinical
trial of digital versus traditional film mam-
mograms reveal that those women with
dense breasts who are pre- or perimeno-
pausal (i.e., women who had a last menstru-


Southern Gardens Citrus Plants


Second Commercial Field Trial


Citrus Trees Resistant to
Canker and Greening

Clewiston, FL This week Southern Gar-
dens Citrus began its second set of research
field trials planting a group of citrus trees
which have shown resistance to greening in
the laboratory. These trees were developed
in conjunction with Integrated Plant Genet-
ics, a private research company based in
Alachua, Florida."
"This field trial continues our efforts to
develop a solution to the current challeng-
ing citrus diseases of greening and canker,"
said Ricke Kress, president.
Kress said that this research project was
initiated in 2007 and that the trees have been
planted in compliance with the issued field
testing permit as received from the United
States Department of Agriculture Biotech-
nology Regulatory Services.
Consistent with the previous planted field
trials that are in place within the Southern
Gardens Citrus Hendry County groves, "We


will continue to follow all issued regulations
related to the safety and integrity of the trial,
including strict access control", said Rick
Kress, president.
Kress said that Southern Gardens Citrus
continues to be very proactive in working
with all facets of the citrus industry including
UF/IFAS, USDA, FDACS, Texas A&M AgriLife
Research, Cornell University, and indepen
dent researchers in an effort to combat and
eliminate the HLB/greening disease.
Citrus greening disease or Huanglong-
bing (HLB) is considered to be the most seri-
ous disease of citrus trees in the world. HLB
was first identified and confirmed in Florida
in September 2005. Today, HLB has spread
to all Florida counties with commercial cit-
rus groves.
Southern Gardens Citrus, one of the large
est citrus producers in the state, has three
groves in southwest Florida, all of which are
infected to some extent with HLB.


al period within 12 months of their mammo-
grams) or who are younger than age 50 may
benefit from having a digital rather than a
film mammogram.
Digital mammography allows the radi-
ologist to view the X-ray image more closely,
zeroing in on suspicious or concerning ar
eas and enabling them to make additional
images.
Digital mammography takes less than half
the time of traditional film-based exams.
Digital mammograms are performed at
Hendry Regional Medical Center.
Schedule your yearly mammogram. Re
member -the best form of protection is early
detection!

River Crossing Project Development and Environment workshop


The New River Crossing Project Develop-
ment and Environment (PD&E) study public
information workshop was held on Tuesday,
September 15, 2009. This project is a poten-
tial bridge to be located in western Hendry
County over the Caloosahatchee River. The
workshop was held at the LaBelle Civic
Center, in LaBelle, from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30
p.m. The workshop was held to present
project information to the public and to give
the public the opportunity to express their
views regarding specific location, design,
socioeconomic effects, and environmental


impacts associated with the two locations
being considered. An east and a west loca-
tion with three possible alignments for each,
is under consideration in this study.
A total of forty-eight (48) people signed
the attendance sheets at the workshop.
Aerial photos showing the six alignments
were on display along with draft project re-
ports and other project information. Hendry
County and their consultants' representa-
tives were available to answer questions and
receive comments.
There were a total of sixteen (16) written


comments received at the workshop. Two
(2) additional comments were submitted via
the project website (www.newrivercross-
inghendryco.com) to-date. The comment
period related to this meeting is still open
but will end on Friday, September 25, 2009.
An interactive survey is also available
on the project website. Residents are en-
couraged to visit the website at http://fsl7.
formsite.com/newriver/form038046058/in-
dex.html to complete a survey The County
wants to know what residents think about
this project. A Public Hearing for the New


River Crossing PD&E Study will be held Oc-
tober 27, 2009 during the Hendry County
Board of County Commissioners Meeting.
At that time the public will have the oppor-
tunity to make comments on the results of
the study. Project documents are available
for public review through Friday, November
6, 2009 at the Barron Library, 461 N. Main
Street, LaBelle, and at the Hendry County
Engineering Office located at 99 East Cow-
boy Way, LaBelle. For further information
please call 863-675-5264.

cannot afford $2 million on a facility that
may cost upwards of $22 million, he said.
"It would force me to cut about 40 teach
ers, basically," said Mr. Murphy, who added
that the figure does not begin to take into ac-
count what it would cost to staff the school,
and its utility costs.
He explained that the last of the district's
major construction projects were Clewis-
ton and LaBelle middle schools. The district
lobbied hard for monies allocated by the
legislature during Governor Lawton Chiles'
administration. Hendry County was one of


only three districts awarded funding from
the special fund that year.
"Otherwise, we could have never done
it," said Mr. Murphy, regretting that, "those
things don't come around very often."
There are other concerns.
With the students traveling to other area
schools, there will be fewer students in
schools that are being fully utilized now, the
administrator argues.
"You're going to have empty classes
in elementary, middle and high schools. If
things get downsized, if we lose enrollment
which we're concerned about, that's not go-
ing to be utilizing our classrooms, the base
costs that are already there. It will be dead
space."
This year has seen enrollment figures


fluctuate and the district actually saw a small
increase this year, but not enough to form a
strong assessment of the future, he said.
And with the district gearing up to deal
with its insurance provider asking for 15 per-
cent more for medical costs for employees,
the last thing on the district's mind is expan-
sion.
If anything, simply keeping present op-
erations afloat is at the top of Mr. Murphy's
list as superintendent.
"Under the new state requirement, we
need to have a three percent fund balance,"
he said. "We are barely, just now, at three
percent. What it boils down to is meeting
payroll... to try to survive the best we can."
Mr. Murphy acknowledges the difficul-
ties, but hopes that the district will be in a


position to look at adding another school at
some point in the future.
"As things change, we will revisit issues,"
said Mr. Murphy. "The county is going to
change. It'll grow in some areas, but it will
take a while."
He sees the eventual four-lane between
Clewiston and LaBelle as a catalyst for more
commercial activity, increased economic
development and perhaps even an influx of
residents to the county.
He's hopeful that the economy will turn
around, too.
"Jobs are what run everything. They pay
for services, infrastructure. We don't want to
raise taxes."

Freedom in America!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
One of the things that has bothered me
about this present administration is the pre
occupation to proclaim what is wrong with
America and to dwell on our problems and
their seeming insurmountability.
The administration has proclaimed the
nation and the people as a whole, rather
than admitting that many of the problems
deal with a few, and by doing so condemn
by association.
This must be and can be solved by action
and not by rhetoric.
And so, I would like to state what I think
is RIGHT with America.
In a message to Congress on January 6,
1941, President Franklin D. Roosevelt stated
to Congress the Four Freedoms that had
been listed in the Atlantic Charter.
Freedom of Speech, Freedom of Wor-
ship, Freedom from Want, and Freedom
from Fear.
I believe that we here in America still
possess these freedoms to a degree that no
people in history prior to our time have ever
possessed.
FREEDOM OF SPEECH... We can speak
out through our Tea Parties and Marches on
Washington.
We see dissent and disagreement that
has been present and vocal but there are
those in the administration who would like
to silence this dissent.
They maintain they want to silence it "for
the good of all."
Thank God, this will not be allowed to
happen!
We are free men and women and we
must cherish this right that all be able to ex-
press themselves.
As Christians we must have this right if
we are to bear the witness we have been
called to bear.
FREEDOM OF WORSHIP... There are
times when men tend to confuse freedom
of worship with freedom from a relationship
to and with God.
True, there have been those who would
like to strike God, His Name, His worship,
and His love from our way of life.
I believe that all they have managed to do
is to make people more aware of the pre-
cious power and the love of God.
We do worship in freedom.
No other land has this kind of religious
freedom.
We have no state church.
The government does not regulate our
religious practices and beliefs, and if we
remain diligent and dedicated to the will of
God such things will not come to pass.
We need to be closer to God as a nation,
but, if we wish this to come about we will
have to be close to God as individuals.
FREEDOM FROM WANT... We are no
richer than the poorest among us.
If any man's life is diminished of life, we
too, if we are truly his brother, are made
smaller.
We live in a nation that has been richly
blessed, that this freedom should be sure for
all.
We expend our great efforts and sums on
a mass level to be sure that men do not want


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


physically, and yet, I cannot help but won-
der if we GIVE a man his physical needs, are
we not to a great extent creating a want of a
psychological nature, a need to be his own
man, not dependent on others.
FREEDOM FROM FEAR... So far we don't
have to worry about a Secret Police coming
in the middle of the night to arrest us for our
expression of these freedoms.
That is indicative of Secret Police proce-
dures, terror without warning.
Our Constitution was formulated to help
preserve freedom from such fear and it is
our heritage that we all should have this
freedom.
If men are to be led free it is free men
who will lead them.
I am still proud to be an American.
Our land is not perfect, but, if you and
I work harder, believe more, and listen to
God, we can make it better, and it is already
better than others.
Keep it ringing! God Bless America!

May you be inscribed and
sealed
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Sometimes even the corniest of old jokes
has a profound lesson to teach us.
"How many psychologists does it take to
change a light bulb?"
"Just one. But he has to be willing to
change!"
Willingness to change is a rare trait
among humans. People are often frightened
of anything new and tend to stick to the sta-
tus quo even if it keeps them in a rut.
Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year,
in many ways is to inspire a willingness to
change.
Quoting Ecclesiastes: "For no man is
perfect in this world, doing only good and
never sinning," the central message of Rosh
Hashanah and Yom Kippur for the Jew is
that we all need to improve, we all need to
change.
It would be good for us to embrace our
Judeo-Christian heritage and realize that this
is a central message for us as well.
In a nutshell, Rosh Hashanah celebrates
the birthday of humankind, the day on which
God created Adam and Eve.
It's a time when God's people reaffirm
their desire to serve God every day, and God
is proclaimed as the one and true King.
At the same time, it's a time when God
reviews the status of His creation and deter-
mines if each person merits another year in
this world.
On Rosh Hashanah, everyone is judged
by God based on his or her actions during
the previous year.
The resulting judgment is inscribed by
God and a person's future is determined for
the following year.
Though that judgment is inscribed, it is
not yet sealed and can still be changed for
another ten days.
God waits until Yom Kippur to seal the
book for the year.
The ten days between Rosh Hashanah
and Yom Kippur is the time for soul-search-
ing and an opportunity to change personal
judgment for the better.


How can a person change their judgment
for the better?
According to the teachings, God looks
chiefly at three areas during these ten days:
Teshuvah (repentance), Tefillah (prayer),
and Tzadaka (charity).
By doing teshuvah with true regret for
the past and commitment for the future, a
person can improve his judgment before it
is sealed on Yom Kippur.
Similarly, by praying with greater con-
centration before God, and by giving charity
with the proper spirit, one can also upgrade
one's status.
A combination of repentance, prayer,
and charity can improve ones standing with
God.
On the first night of Rosh Hashanah,
a special greeting is used, "May you be in
scribed and sealed for a good year."
A Jewish friend shared, "Every time we
wish each other a Happy and Sweet New
Year, we are really saying, "I hope that you
are successful in your attempts to change
yourself and improve yourself in the coming
year."
It is in that spirit that I wish each of you a
Happy and Sweet New Year!
May you all be inscribed and sealed for a
good year.

Using what God gives us; Ig-
norance is not bliss and can
be fatal!
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Having served as their tour guide, I was
invited by a travel program to share in one
of their "introductory tours."
The off-season, complimentary trip
would mean I could get to see all sorts of
places that I dreamed about visiting one
day.
Costs would be covered by the tour
company; a really great opportunity... So I
thought.
When I called for more information, I
asked the name of the air carrier that was
being used.
The name was given to me; an airline
that I had never heard of before.
I went to the library and "googled" up the
airline.
The articles that came up, one after an-
other, were about the mishaps that the air-
line suffered.
This was not good news!
I called the tour agency back and asked
if they knew anything about this particular
airline.
The operator said "No."
I told her that I had done some checking
and then asked "Do you want me to send
you the references so you can check for
yourself?"
Her one-word answer ("No.") told me
all that I wanted to know about deciding to
cancel the trip, and my relationship with that
tour company.
Later, I heard of another mishap that oc-
curred on a flight going to the city where the
airline was based.
I checked: sure enough...!


This recollection came to me from my
Bible reading last week.
The Book of Proverbs opens with an
admonition in the first chapter to use what
God makes available to us; and to seek be-
ing wise.
"How long will you simple ones love
your simple ways... And fools hate knowl-
edge (chapter 1, verse 22)?"
The author reminds those who choose
ignorance or are proud of their not knowing
that their attitudes will catch up with them:
"Since they hated knowledge and did not
choose to fear the Lord, since they would
not accept my advice and spurned my re-
buke, they will eat the fruit of their ways.
For the waywardness of the simple will
kill them, the complacency of fools will de-
stroy them, but whoever listens to me will
live in safety and be at ease, without fear of
harm (vs. 29-33)."
I cannot know everything, I cannot learn
all that there is to be learned, but I have a
responsibility to seek the knowledge that
my God-given talents will make available to
me.
If I pretend, if I am like the ostrich that
sticks his head in the sand to avoid things, if
I don't do something to be aware and learn
what I ought to know, mywaywardness may
kill me; my complacency will be my end.
Don't wanna know?
No!
Proverbs reminds us that ignorance is not
bliss and that what you don't know can kill
you.
The admonition to be wise means that
we have to use what God makes available
to us; and to be responsible for knowing
and learning about what's going on in His
world.
