City and local
company work
together to welcome
Canadian snowbirds
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
How exactly can attracting
Canadian nationals to America's
Sweetest Town benefit the local
economy?
A simple math problem to
consider:
Okeechobee Landings RV Re-
sort in Clewiston figures it has 300
sites. At two people per site, there
are 600 folks who spend their
winter holiday here during peak
capacity.
Mike Gelinas, who handles
public relations for the resort,
estimates that fully 80 percent
of these campers are Canadian,
though the trend shows that the
number could swell.
That is the hope.


"If they spend $1,000 a month,
that's $600,000 a month that these
folks bring to our communities,"
he said.
An influx to the local economy
during times like these is always
a good thing, resort representa-
tives say, but showing your neigh-
bors that they are truly welcomed
should be more than a town's
catchy slogan.
On Dec. 17, the city will live up
to the challenge, hosting a Wel-
come Canada Day on Bond Street.
On that day, Clewiston will host
a sidewalk sale on Bond Street,
with approximately 25 vendors
and exhibitors lined up already.
The event will feature six enter-
tainment groups, a fiddler, church
choir and a local band.
Before the event, however,
residents and snowbirds can par-
ticipate in the golf tournament at
the Clewiston Golf Course. The
tournament begins at 11 a.m.,

Glades Day triumphs over Jupiter in OT thriller


Glades Central scores
blowout win over American
Heritage (Plantation)

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
PORT ST. LUCIE The Region 4-Class 1B
championship showdown between Glades
Day and Jupiter Christian certainly lived up
to its hype.
In a game that featured two different ex-
tremes, plus two heart-stopping overtime
sequences, it was Glades Day that prevailed
- with a 45-44 victory.
Down 44-43 with a chance to either tie
the overtime game up or win it, Gators head
coach Pete Walker, to the surprise of almost
everyone, decided to go for the win.
After Jupiter Christian senior quarter-
back Marshyl Rothman threw an 18-yard
touchdown pass to senior wideout Westin
Pedersen give the Eagles their first lead at
44-37 in overtime, Glades Day's possession
would end up being one no one there will
likely ever forget. On first-and-goal from the
10-yard line, Glades Day sophomore quar-
terback Tanner Redish pitched the ball to
freshman running back Kelvin Taylor.
Almost as quickly as Taylor was handed
the pigskin, he simply muscled his way into
the end zone for a 10-yard score, giving
Glades Day a chance to pull off the surpris-
ing win.


INI/Naji Tobias
The Glades Day Gators, in sheer jubilation, celebrated their playoff win over the
Jupiter Christian Eagles for the Region 4-1B title on Nov. 27.


With Glades Day kicker Joseph Langmey-
er not available to kick for the extra point -
Langmeyer suffered a shoulder injury in the
game and was not able to get back into it
- Walker made perhaps the gutsiest call of
his coaching career.
To the shock of the Eagles defense and
to many fans of both Class 1B teams Glades
Day lines up for the win.
What happened next?
Kelvin Taylor burst into the end zone after


converting on the two-point conversion for
the win. And with Glades Day celebrating
wildly on the Port St. Lucie High School field
in jubilation, they took down the Class 1B
titans, ending their season.
Taylor on Glades Day's landmark win:
"Man, we needed that one bad," he said.
"We just kept it together and our offensive
line blocked well. Our fullback [Joe Jenco]
blocked really well. I always trust my eyes
when Tanner hands me the ball. I always


believe in my teammates and they always
come through for me."
Taylor, who scored five rushing touch-
downs in this wildly exciting contest, pre-
dicted in the preseason, along with Redish
and others, that Jupiter Christian would not
win state for a third time. And Josh Thorn-
ton, who came through on defense with a
key interception off Rothman in the second
half, even predicted boldly a few days be-
fore this game that 'Jupiter Christian has no
chance against us.'
"I'm so excited right now, I can't even ex-
plain it right now," Thornton said after cel-
ebrating with his teammates and coaches.
Jupiter Christian was close to being the
team that would celebrate, after they some-
how found a way to storm back from a 37-
16 fourth-quarter deficit.
After Redish ran in a 1-yard touchdown
score to put the Gators up 37-16 with 11:52
to go in regulation, the Eagles took less than
four minutes to begin the comeback.
But not after Rothman threw his second
pick of the game to Glades Day's Davonte
Allen on the Eagles next possession.
Rothman's second interception perhaps
a season-killer for Jupiter Christian, it seemed
- came after he converted on an 18-yard pass
to senior running back Will Powers to take
the Eagles to Glades Day's 41-yard line.
All Glades Day had to do was score an-
other touchdown to kill Jupiter Christian's

Glades Day
Continued From Page 2

hopes for a comeback. But they were
stopped on a three-and-out sequence, giv-
ing the Eagles the ball back.
Just four plays later, Jupiter Christian was
back in the game on Rothman's 18-yard
touchdown run to cut the lead to 37-23 with
8:14 to go. Glades Day's next drive ended in
another three-and-out, and with fans hold-
ing their breaths, Jupiter Christian's offense
was suddenly back on the field.
Highlighted by a clutch 22-yard run from
Eagles junior wideout Trey Pendergrass, Ju-
piter Christian scored again this time off
Rothman's 4-yard touchdown throw to Ped-
ersen to cut the lead to 37-30 with 5:20 to
go.
Glades Day recovered an onside kick for
another chance to put the game away, but
Redish lost a key fumble on third down, with
Eagles defensive lineman Taylor Heinz, a 6-7


specimen, recovering it at the Gators 34-yard
line. Four plays later and with just 1:55 to go,
Rothman threw for his second touchdown -
a 28-yard strike to junior wideout Josh Gam-
ble to complete the comeback, sending the
game into overtime.
"You know, I can't think of anything bet-
ter than how both teams played," Rothman
said after the game. "This was a dogfight
to the end. It makes our loss a little better
knowing we put together at the end. I'm sad
it was my last game in an Eagles uniform,
but all things must come to an end."
Not so for Glades Day, the clear cut fa-
vorite now to win this year's Class 1B state
championship on Dec. 11.
"We're moving on to the next round and
Jupiter Christian is not," Walker said bluntly.
"Instead of packing it in as coaches, we de-
cided to put it in Taylor's hands and go for
the win. We just felt it was our best oppor-
tunity to win it. Our offensive line did a great
job on the job and the rest is history."
Notes: Glades Day went into halftime
with a 31-9 lead over former two-time Class


1B state champion Jupiter Christian.
Taylor had 205 rushing yards on just nine
carries and four touchdowns in the first
half.
Though finishing 4-for-12 with just 87
yards, two of Redish's throws to Allen were
purely clutch, including a 50-yard pass in
the second half on a third-and-8 play from
Glades Day's 46 yard line to set up Redish's
rushing score.
Glades Day (10-2) will be traveling north
to Sarasota tomorrow evening to play Re-
gion 3 and District 6-1B champion Out-of-
Door Academy in the Class 1B state semifi-
nal game.
The kickoff is scheduled for 7:30 p.m.,
with the winner going to Orlando next week
for a chance to become the new Class 1B
state champion.
Glades Central 46, American Heri-
tage (Plantation) 20: Raiders senior quar
terback L.J. Thomas was 18-for-32 passing
on a career-high 514 yards and five touch-
downs to give his team the Region 4-Class
2A title.


Two of Thomas's touchdowns were
thrown to Greg Dent, who just last week de-
commited from the University of Miami and
switched to Florida State University.
Dent (six catches, 230 yards) scored on
touchdown passes of 68 and 92 yards, re-
spectively, in the first half.
Glades Central breakout star Jamie Wil-
son (three catches, 99 yards) also scored
two touchdowns, including a 64-yarder from
Thomas in the first quarter to give the Raid-
ers a 14-0 lead they would never relinquish.
Glades Central (12-0 overall; this week's
Beef O' Brady's No. 2 overall team in the
state) moves up three spots in the latest Ri-
vals100 national rankings from No. 16 to No.
13.
And the Raiders will be facing off against
Robinson (Tampa) in the Class 2A state
semifinal game at home tomorrow night.
With the kickoff set for 7:30 p.m. at Effie
C. Grear Stadium, the winner of this game
will be going to Orlando on Saturday, Dec.
12 for a chance to become this year's Class
2A state champion.

Going Squirrelly
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Christmas is a wonderfully squirrelly holi-
day. Harvest time is past. Any one with any
sense would find December a prime time to
start rationing supplies, cutting down on ex-
cesses, hunkering in the bunker as the cold
winds start to whip about.
But what do we do? Just as money be-
comes tighter, we go shopping for gifts. We
take time off from work and instead spend
time and money to travel in order to be with
our families and friends. That's squirrelly!
But being squirrelly isn't necessarily bad.
Squirrel antics are centered on a single-
minded purpose. NUTS! And because of
that single-minded purpose, they find joy in
every moment as though it is the only one
that matters.
NUTS could be an acronym for Never
Underestimate The Squirrel. If you have ever
attempted to feed just birds and not squirrels
from your backyard feeder, you know that
no one has yet succeeded in creating a truly
"squirrel-proof" feeder. Products designed
to baffle don't baffle them for long.
Squirrels aren't rocket scientists, but they
use all their squirrelly attributes to get to the
prize. They dig in with their toes. They bal-
ance on precarious perches. They use their
tails like anchors. They use their front paws
like a surgeon's skilled hands. The squirrel's
tactics aren't necessarily perfect, but they
are always persistent.
Squirrels delight in going "out on a limb."
Confident in their God-given gifts, strong
claws for climbing, a long tail for balance,
an eye for perfectly gauging distances, they
are comfortable and unconcerned perched
on the tippy-end of a tiny branch.
Squirrels are very intentional in their
gathering behavior. When searching for
nuts or seeds they will traverse the ground
carefully, scouring every inch, rooting under
every fallen leaf, overturning stones, digging
in the earth. Squirrels don't just pick up one
little nut at a time, they stuff as much as they
can in their cheeks.
If our priority is the kingdom of God, our
intentionality needs to be just as exhaustive.
We are to take our witness and words out
into the community and the world. We need
to be very intentional about our asking and


inviting those who have not heard the good
news, who have given up hope, who have
slipped between the cracks, who are hidden
under heavy weights. There is no place we
cannot find the kernels of God's kingdom.
Being a squirrel means expending a lot of
energy in order to achieve the goal of gath-
ering. We too need to be energized, to be
up and doing what God has called us to do.
Squirrels do not grow weary in well-doing.
They don't take time off to sleep in on Sun-
day morning. Squirrels don't just blow off
meetings or commitments because they are
tired or bored or depressed. Resting when
possible, but always working towards the
final goal, that is "squirreliness."

Getting ready for Christmas -
The race to be run
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
My calendar and the tempo of life tells
me that we're in the "home stretch" now-
Christmas is nearly here and soon another
year will begin. Perhaps in another sense,
we are in the "home stretch" in many things;
maybe the recession is coming to an end,
maybe the things we hear about the ends
of our overseas wars are coming into view,
maybe the job situation is beginning to turn
around at least in some industries. Is the end
in sight; are we in the "home stretch?" Who
can say for sure?
One thing for certain, we are now well un-
derway for Christmas. When thinking about
this "race" I was reminded of the words of
Saint Paul; "Do you not know that in a race,
all the runners run, but only one gets the
prize? (1 Corinthians 9:24)." Everybody is in
the final stages of getting ready for the holi-
days, but who gets the prize? Paul tells the
faithful "Run in such a way as to get the prize
ibidd)." If you're preparing for something
then get ready for it! Don't leave all of the
details for the last moment, and don't forget
your priorities.
Don't ignore shopping early when things
will still be available, plan your trips and
think about each person on your list of spe-
cial people to remember. Is the gift to be
given something that reflects some thought
and understanding or is it something more
"generic" and says "I don't know you too


well, but want to remember you at this spe-
cial time anyway!" Run the Christmas race
so that you will receive the prize of a very
special and personal holiday for all you are
going to make a part of it. By the way; is
Christmas to be another year-end event or
will getting ready for Christmas really in-
clude what it's all about?
Is home going to reflect the place for
the coming of the King of Kings; or are the
decorations going to reflect the commercial
themes so often heard at this time? Take a
minute and decide. Is there some prepara-
tion that needs to be done before a religious
celebration or is Church attendance just an-
other part of the "Christmas thing?" What
does it mean to run the race for Christmas if
we are to receive the prize? I think it means
that we get ready, each step along the way
is toward the goal, we focus on the real rea-
son for the race and pace ourselves, we start
with the final goal and real reason in mind.
The reason for Christmas is to celebrate
the coming of the Lord among us; the mes-
sages of joy, peace on earth, good will to-
ward others, hope, the gift of faith in its final
form, the promise of the message of salva-
tion is for each and every one of us, all of the
great things -that's what Christmas is finally
about. That's why we run the race; that's the
reason for the season!

Angelfood Ministry is coming to Clewiston


The Clewiston Ministerial Association has
been approved to be the host for an Angel-
food Ministry drop off site in Clewiston. The
first delivery will be Saturday, December 21,
from 2 p.m. to 3 p.m. at First United Method-
ist Church. December menus can be found,
and orders can be made at the Salvation
Army at 335 Central Ave., First United Meth-
odist Church, New Harvest Church, and Cal-
vary Baptist Church.
More church and community order sites
are expected in the future. People can also
go online to place orders or check menus at
Angelfoodministries.com. Angelfood Minis-
tries accepts food stamps, and Food Stamps
can be used to place orders online, at the
Salvation Army, and at First United Method-
ist Church. People with questions can call
Alice Whitt at 983-5269.
Pastor John Hicks, the Clewiston Min-
isterial Association president commented,
"My goal is to get 300 boxes, then we will
be able to make Clewiston a delivery drop
point. Until that time, we will have to go to
LeHigh Acres to pick up our orders in bulk
and bring them back to Clewiston for distri-
bution. If all of us work together, and en-
courage group support as well, I believe that
we can get those 300 boxes and more from
our community.
Anyone can purchase a food package.
The blessing is that those who purchase the
food get a great deal on quality food and
save money as well. More than what we re-
ceive, is what we can provide in outreach to
our community and families."
Information about Angelfood
Ministries
With a heart to help others and a gener-
ous spirit, Joe and Linda Wingo founded An-
gel Food Ministries in 1994 to provide food
for friends and neighbors who were strug-
gling financially. Today the Angel Food pro-
gram now is helping provide food relief to
more than 500,000 families each month.
In 1994, Pastors Joe and Linda Wingo
found their hearts going out to the families
of many of the local families in Monroe, GA,
affected by the recent industrial plant clos-
ings. On their back porch, the first Angel
Food distribution fed 34 families.
Over the next years, other churches
wanted to be get involved, and Angel Food
began feeding hundreds of families across
the southeast. Now, Angel Food feeds over
500,000 families a month in 35 states. Praise
the Lord for his faithfulness!
Orders and distribution are handled by
church host sites. Orders are collected by the
host sites during the first part of each month.
These orders are then turned in to the Angel
Food main office in Monroe, Georgia, on a
predetermined date.
Several days later, in the same month, the
host site either picks up the food from Angel
Food's 160,000 square feet warehouse to fill
the orders on Distribution Day or, because
this ministry is growing nationwide, food is
delivered to the host site by a pre-arranged
delivery mode. In most cases, as long as
there is a truck headed in the direction of
a community who wants this program and
sees its ministry influence, there are no extra
transportation costs.


Angel Food Ministries is a non-profit, non-
denominational organization dedicated to
providing food relief and financial support to
communities throughout the United States.
The program began in 1994 with 34 fami-
lies in Monroe, Georgia (between Atlanta
and Athens), and has grown to serve hun-
dreds of thousands of families every month
across 35 states. Angel Food Ministries cross-
es denominational lines and has spread the
good news of the gospel of Christ through
salvation tracts that are placed in each food
order.
Blessings by the box
Angel Food is available in a quantity that
can fit into a medium-sized box at $30 per
unit. Each month's menu is different than
the previous month and consists of both
fresh and frozen items with an average retail
value of approximately $60.
Comparison shopping has been done
across the country in various communities
using a wide range of retail grocery stores
and has resulted in the same food items
costing from between $42 and $78.
Generally, one unit of food assists in feed-
ing a family of four for about one week or
a single senior citizen for almost a month.
The food is all the same high quality one
could purchase at a grocery store. There are
no second-hand items, no damaged or out-
dated goods, no dented cans without labels,
no day-old breads and no produce that is
almost too ripe.
Also offered are specialty boxes such as
steaks, chicken and pork. Many participants
in this bonus program appreciate the ex-
panded choices.
Additionally, there is no limit to the num-
ber of units or bonus foods an individual
can receive, and there are no applications
to complete or qualifications to which par-
ticipants must adhere. Angel Food Ministries
also participates in the U.S. Food Stamp pro-
gram, using the Off-Line Food Stamp Vouch-
er system.
It's both a Bargain and a
Blessing!
By buying food from first rate suppliers
at substantial volume discounts, Angel Food
Ministries is able to provide families with ap-
proximately $65 worth of quality nutritious
food for $30. Angel Food Ministries does not
use out-of-date food or inferior products.
About the food
Each month's menu is different and con-
sists of fresh, frozen and packaged food. An-
gel Food is purchased from the nation's top
food suppliers. Providing quality, nutritious
food at significant discounts on a regular
basis is one practical way to give people a
"hand up" during difficult times. The cost for
a box of Angel Food is $30. There is no pur-
chase limit for boxes of Angel Food. There
are no applications or qualifications neces-
sary to purchase.
About the value
Comparison shopping nationwide in
various grocery stores has revealed that the
average retail value for the same food items


would be approximately $65. Generally, one
box of Angel Food assists in feeding a family
of four for about one week or a single senior
citizen for almost a month.

About speciality boxes
Each month, Angel Food Ministries also
offers "specialty boxes" of steak, chicken,
pork or other foods. This bonus program af-
fords participants additional food choices at
a great value. There is no purchase limit for
specialty boxes or bonus foods. There are
no applications or qualifications necessary
to purchase.

Food Stamp Program
To better help families in need, Angel
Food Ministries participates in the Food
Stamp Program. This program is designed
to help low-income families buy the food
they need for good nutrition. Each month,
by processing the most offline Food Stamp
vouchers in the country, Angel Food is help-
ing feed approximately 100,000 people in
the United States.

Purchasing Angel Food
There are no restrictions, conditions or
forms to fill out to purchase Angel Food. The
food relief program is open to one and all.
Anyone may purchase an unlimited number
of boxes of Angel Food by placing an order
with a local Angel Food host site.

Pack a Shoe Box- Impact a Life


Students from the Clewiston Christian
School are filling shoe boxes for children
they will probably never meet. In conjunc-
tion with the organization Samaritan's Purse,
the RAK Club conducted a "Packing Party"
for Operation Christmas Child after school
last week to fill shoe boxes for children who
are in difficult situations around the world.
Students choose the age and sex of the
child they want to bless and then fill a box


with age appropriate items: hygiene, school
supplies, toys and candy. Once labeled, the
boxes are sent to Samaritan's Purse to be
distributed to children who are dealing with
poverty, war and natural disasters.
This is the second year that the school
has participated in the program which be-
gan in 1993. Since then, Samaritan's Purse
has shipped 69 million shoe boxes to chil-
dren in over 130 countries.

Fossils



discovered



at CES
The second, third, fourth, and fifth
grade students went on an in school field
trip. They traveled back in time to when
most of Florida was under water.
They learned that there are no dino-
saur fossils in Florida, but fossils do exist
here.
The students then proceeded to their
"dig site." Each student was presented
with a matrix filled with hidden secrets.
Most obvious were large fossilized shark
teeth. In addition to the teeth of sharks,
many found fossilized stingray mandibles,
horse teeth, mastodon bone fragments,
fish bones and turtle shells. Many oth-
ers found tiny shark teeth after combing
through the matrix.
All agreed that the "fossil dig" provided
by Fossiledu was a great learning tool as
well as being fun. All the students hope
they can go on another "dig" soon.

High School Students experience a 'Day in the Life of a Nurse'


By: Glenda Wilson
On Friday, Nov. 13, 50 students from
Clewiston and Moore Haven High Schools
looked beyond graduation and into a career
of nursing, when they participated in a "Day
in the Life of a Nurse," a nursing interaction
and observation program held each year at
Hendry Regional Medical Center.
David McClusky, education assistant, co-
ordinated the day's activities with a goal to
inspire students to pursue a nursing career
and provide them with a glimpse of impor-
tant and varied tasks that nurses perform.
Pam Redondo, the hospital's Chief Nurs-
ing Officer, kicked off the event as the first
speaker of the day. Other Hendry Regional
registered nurses who presented to the
group included Sharon Murphy (Infection
Control and OR Manager), Cynthia Drapal
(Emergency Room and CCU Manager), and
Joe Horn (Medical/Surgical Manager and Pa-
tient Safety Officer).
Nursing recruiters, Dr. Susan Holland
(from Edison State College) and Dr. Carol
Alexander (from Palm Beach State College)
also took part in the program and encour-
aged the students to steer towards a career
in nursing, as they provided them with the
why's, when's and how's of the profession.
One of the day's highlights was the land-
ing of the Aeromed helicopter (based in
LaBelle) from Tampa General Hospital and
a presentation provided by its flight nurse,
Dan Kresge, RN EMT Paramedic.
All "Day in the Life of a Nurse" partici-
pants were provided with scholarship pack
ages, and some even revealed that the day's
experience had helped to seal their deci-
sions in moving forward with their interests
in the nursing industry. At the end of the day,
the high school students left with a new un-
derstanding and knowledge of the nursing
field.


There's a wonderful world around us. Full of
fascinating places. Interesting people. Amazing
cultures. Important challenges. But sadly, our
kids are not getting the chance to learn about
their world. When surveys show that half of
America's youth cannot locate India or Iraq on
a map, then we have to wonder what they do
know about their world. That's why we created
MyWonderfulWorld.org. It's part of a free National
Geographic-led campaign to give your kids the
power of global knowledge. Go there today and
help them succeed tomorrow. Start with our free
parent and teacher action kits. And let your kids
begin the adventure of a lifetime.
Its a wonderfuL world. ExpLorel

Hendry Sheriff's deputies save woman's life


Due to the quick actions of Hendry
County Sheriffs Deputies, their success in
extricating a female driver from a sinking
car may have saved her life. During the ear-
ly morning hours of Friday, November 20,
2009, Hendry County Agriculture Deputy
Blake Branaman was patrolling the area of
Flaghole Road outside of Clewiston, when
he witnessed a vehicle exit the west side
of Flaghole Road and enter a canal that
parallels the roadway. Acting quickly Dep-
uty Branaman immediately called for assis-
tance and exited his vehicle. After notifying
sheriff's office communication dispatcher,
Lori Rodriguez, Branaman told them he
was entering the canal in an effort to rescue
the driver as the vehicle was quickly sink-


ing. Upon making contact with the driver,
later identified as Robin Jones, Branaman
struggled with her to get her out of the vehi-
cle as she was uncooperative and resisting
his efforts. Moments later additional Sher-
iff's Office personnel arrived on scene and
were able to assist Branaman in removing
Jones from the vehicle unharmed. Clewis-
ton towing was then called to remove the
completely submerged vehicle.
Once Jones was removed from the ve-
hicle she was transported to Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center and later released. At
the time of her release she was transported
to the Clewiston Sub Office where she was
interviewed. It was at this time that depu-
ties determined that Jones was in fact in-


toxicated. She did submit to a breathalyzer
to determine her blood alcohol level which
measured .140, nearly twice the legal level.
Jones was placed under arrest and trans-
ported to the Hendry County Jail and later
released on a $750.00 bond.
Sheriff Whidden stated "I am very proud
of the efforts of Deputy Blake Branaman,
Sgt. Larry Preece, Deputies Clifton Green,
Shannon Bell and Brian VanFleet. Their
heroic efforts and selfless action are an
example of the risks that law enforcement
officers around the nation may be called
upon to take each day while protecting its
citizens."

Snowbirds
Continued From Page 1

and includes 18 holes of golf and a steak
dinner for $50.
Resort representatives are hoping for a
great turnout.
The fact that leaders have responded so
well to the resort's suggestion is encourag-
ing to Mr. Gelinas and the resort owner, San-
dra Hare.
Mrs. Hare is an unabashedly vocal cham-
pion of her town, insisting that attracting
people from Quebec and other provinces
has more to do with wanting to see her little
town flourish than with keeping the RV oc-
cupied for six months out of the year.
If there is insincerity in her remarks, no
lesser psychologist could detect it. She was
a girl who came from West Palm Beach with


resisting force, but today would accept few
trades for her small town existence.
Mr. Gelinas is himself a Canadian who
was drawn to the warmer climates of a
Florida winter. He has spent time at the re-
sort before, and this year was offered a full-
time job by Mrs. Hare to focus on getting the
word out about Clewiston and the resort to
people in Canada.
The resort offers a mix of games and en-
tertainment at the clubhouse, with a band
playing every Saturday and visitors taking
part in friendly games of Euchre. The group
is planning a trip to a hockey game in Janu-
ary and focuses on keeping all of their snow-
birds busy.
According to Mr. Gelanis, most snow-
birds from Canada are 55 years or older and
most don't travel with children. Far from
using local resources, the snowbirds are
adding to them, dining out at local restau-
rants, frequenting local businesses and, for


the most part, staying far away from trouble
-- Ms. Hare said the local police chief was
surprised to learn of the relatively sizeable
Canadian contingency in Clewiston during
the winter.
So popular has the site become that
Okeechobee Landings has already begun
to offer visitors classes in basic English. Sur-
prisingly, English-speaking folks have started
taking classes in basic French, too.
The ultimate goal is to convince tourists
and visitors that Clewiston is a great place to
live. This is a goal that Mrs. Hare's business
side does not concern itself with, but that
the citizen would like to see in her lifetime:
The community remain a close-knit, friendly,
welcoming town.
Okeechobee Landings was the highlight
of an editorial in a Canadian publication
based in South Florida that argued that if
all resorts lowered their prices and treated
guests well, snowbirds wouldn't flock to


places like Texas and Arizona.
Mr. Gelinas believes in his product: the
city of Clewiston. He travels far to show
campers that Clewiston is the place to be,
carrying with him a binder with pictures of
the RV park and the clubhouse, but more
importantly, of the amenities the city has to
offer -- the Clewiston Inn, the presence of
major retailers, its golf course -- the scenic
trail on the levee, the temperate Everglades
mornings and the singularly spectacular
sunsets against the lake in the dusk.
"People who come here don't want the
hustle and bustle," said Mr. Gelanis, ac-
knowledging RV sites on either of the coasts.
"The sun is shining just as well here as in Ft.
Lauderdale or West Palm Beach."

Historical look: A brilliant master plan that failed


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The loss of Dade's command and the
poor results of General Clinch's and Gen-
eral Gaines' engagements convinced Wash-
ington that a new commander was needed
for the Florida Theater. In 1836, General
Winfield Scott was put in charge of all mili-
tary forces in Florida.
General Scott immediately implemented
a brilliant battle strategy to route the Semi-
noles from their forbidden haunts around
the Withlacoochee River. Scotts plan was
to break his command into three separate
columns that would converge on an area
called the Withlacoochee Cove. There the
three columns would engage and break the
fighting will of the Seminoles.
He ordered General Clinch to command
one column, the Right Wing, which would
march south from Fort Drane to the With-
lacoochee River. This action would prevent
the Seminoles from escaping north. Gen-
eral Abraham Eustis was assigned the sec-
ond column, the Left Wing. It would march
south from St. Augustine to the St. Johns
River, swing west and cross the Oklawaha
River, before eventually turning north to
the Withlacoochee Cove. Colonel William
Lindsay was assigned command of the third
column, the Center Wing. He marched his
army from Tampa Bay (Fort Brooke), then
followed the west side of the Withlacoochee
River to the Cove.
General Scott was an excellent tactician
and planned his campaign well. He pur-
chased supply wagons and formed wagon
trains to carry rations, ammunition and for-
age for the thousands of soldiers and hors-


es. The campaign on paper looked invinci-
ble, but like all plans there is usually a weak
point called the "Achilles Heel," which can
foil even a military genius.
Too late, Napoleon Bonaparte, the self
proclaimed emperor of Europe, discovered
that the terrible Russian winters weren't in-
cluded in his plans for conquering "Mother
Russia."
He would lose most of his army (Eu-
rope's greatest army at that time) to the
cold, icy breath of winter. Years later, a
confident General Scott would also find
his plans interrupted by the unforeseen.
Swamplands, palmetto hammocks, sandy
wastelands and too few roads would ham-
string his well orchestrated and converging
army of men and horses.
In order for General Scott's plan to suc-
ceed, his three columns must move like a
precision clock to reach their predestinated
objectives by March 25, 1836.
To meet this requirement, each army
column must stay in constant touch with
the other columns, so that the command-
ers could ensure proper synchronization
among the three converging armies. The
unforeseen Florida swampland would stop
General Scott's synchronized clock.
The Right Column under General Clinch
arrived on March 28, 1836 after going
through the terrible ordeal of pulling wag-
ons and flat boats through Florida's unfor-
giving swamps and impassable woods. The
column was delayed further when it came
under enemy fire near the Withlacoochee
River.
The Right Column finally reached its ob-
jective, the Withlachoochee Cove, on April
1, 1836. By this time it was low on rations


and forced to march to Fort Brooke.
General Eustis' Center Wing also failed
to reach its objective on time. It was the
most handicapped army column because it
had the greatest distance to travel. The Cen-
ter Wing left St. Augustine March 15, 1836,
but due to rough terrain didn't reach the St.
Johns until March 22, 1836. While crossing
the Withlacoochee River, the column came
under constant Seminole fire that inflicted
causalities further delaying the river cross-
ing four days.
The Center Wing finally reached its ob-
jective on April 1, 1836 but was so low on
rations due to the timely setbacks that it too
was forced to break off and march to Fort
Brooke for much needed supplies.
The Left Wing, under the command of
Colonel Lindsay, failed to establish con-
tact with the other two columns. It was
constantly ambushed by Seminoles and at
one point the situation became so desper-
ate that the soldiers were forced to make a
frontal attack using bayonets.
The Seminole attacks set Colonel Lind-
say's column back three days. He would
spend an additional three days trying to
make contact with the other two columns.
Colonel Lindsay finally marched his troops
back to Fort Brooke.
General Scotts' brilliant plan failed to
yield any positive results. His armies had
been forced to battle the Florida wilderness,
where his logistics provided no support, but
served as a burden to the movement of his
troops.
Scott admired European tactics and ap-
plied them to The Second Seminole War,
which was a guerrilla war.
In the Florida Wilderness, the Seminoles


were in their element, while General Scott
and his forces were not. Seminoles didn't
fight by rules of war. They attacked in sud-
den violence, hitting weak points in the
American lines and raining havoc on the
troops before vanishing into the green, liq-
uid landscape.
General Scott had no defensive or offen-
sive tactics to counter this mode of attack.
Major Leigh Read, a militia officer, wrote
that General Scott had attempted to apply
"the shreds and patches of the obsolete sys-
tem of European tactics where they could
not possibly work."
It was General Scott's low performance
in the Florida Wilderness, along with his
poor public defense measures, which criti-
cized the soldiers and civilians in Florida that
finally relieved him of his Florida command.
General Scott was delicately removed from
command in Florida and politically assigned
command in Alabama. His command in
Florida would eventually be given to Gen-
eral Jesup.
I hope you have enjoyed this story. Please
contact the Clewiston Museum if you have
questions, artifacts, pictures, or a "Whale
of a Tale" that you would like to share. The
Museum's hours are Monday through Fri-
day from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The museum provides an interesting
fossil display of prehistoric animals that
once roamed the Glades thousands of years
ago and artifacts that reflect the heritage of
Clewiston. Its theater has a 65-seat capac-
ity and presents movies on the history of
Clewiston, sugar cane harvesting, and the
orange industry. Stop by and enjoy a 45-
