Clewiston for,


Labelle against


March 9 referendum


After vote, $12
million ER project to
move forward
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
Hospital administrators record-
ed a decisive victory during the
March 9 election that essentially
gives them the ability to begin the
construction of an all-new emer-
gency room facility in Clewiston.
Slightly more than 13 percent
of the county's 16,000 registered
voters visited the polls on Tuesday,
casting 71 percent of the votes in
favor of the referendum to allow
the hospital to move forward with
the project.
Breaking those numbers fur-


their, an interesting thing is re-
vealed: While every Clewiston
precinct supported the approval
of the bond item -- with two pre-
cincts reporting as many as 99
percent of the votes cast in favor
-- nearly every precinct outside of
Clewiston, including one in Felda,
voted to oppose the measure.
Because the facility will be con-
structed in Clewiston, residents in
LaBelle may not have noted as big
of a benefit to their own city, out-
side of the $2 million pledged for
new services there.
Clewiston precincts also drew
much larger voter turnout, with
1,342 of the votes cast at Clewis-
ton precincts, compared to the
820 in precincts in LaBelle -- a fig-
ure of more than 500 more voters

Resident searches for


Pit bull sought by
animal control for
rabies test
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
"I'm an animal lover," says Ms.
Fish.
That statement was given its
hardest test yet last weekend.
Judy Fish has had her little dog
for just about ten years now, a little
16- or 17-pound creature that was
among the first things given to her
when she moved to Clewiston.
On Saturday, Ms. Fish, a 60-
year-old county resident who lives


just east of Clewiston, was faced
with a tough choice: whether to
continue holding on to that little
dog, while a much larger one bit
and pursued it -- which meant
putting herself in harm's way -- or
letting go and escaping into the
safety of her home.
While she talked about it a few
days after the event, Ms. Fish seems
convinced that she wouldn't have
changed what she did, which was
to hold on to the dog until the
more dominant creature let go.
"I actually thought the pit bull
had my dog's flesh," said Ms. Fish.
"In my mind (I thought), if I could
hold on to that flesh, a veterinarian
could sew it back on."

Olga Torres, a registered dental hygienist from the Florida
Community Health Center, taught first graders at Eastside El-
ementary about the importance of brushing your teeth. She

sions currently taking place. Thanks for

Saving money,
or shortchanging services?
"I wonder how much Clewiston could
save by letting the S.O. take over the city po-
licing and the county take over the building,
zoning, code enforcement, fire marshall and
other multi-layered government agencies.
It seems like Moore Haven does fine using
the county agencies. Something has to be
done about the astronomical taxes in the
city limits. It doesn't seem to make a lot of
sense to have both a S. 0. and a city police


station only blocks away from each other in
such a small town. I am not saying cutting
staff or services but to consolidate into one
so as to save on operating expenses and to
eliminate double taxation and multi-layered
government."

Saving a dollar, or a life?
"It's amazing what people will agree to
when they think they will save a dollar. But
as soon as they need to pick up the phone
and dial 911 and the response time as much
as triples I wonder what they will think."

PBSO Belle Glade and Pahokee youth boxers win by the rules


By Steven Tillings
Special to The Sun
During the week in
Belle Glade and Paho-
kee, many kids are off
the streets and in the

sure. We mandate that
our youth boxers follow
a strict code of conduct
to maintain membership.
The PAL youth boxer will
agree to respecting par-
ents, teachers, persons
of authority, and respect
all people as they would
like to be respected. They
cannot be a gang mem-
ber, and must stay clear of
all unlawful activity. In ad-
dition, the PAL boxer can-
not use drugs, alcoholic
beverages, tobacco prod-
ucts. Honesty is required;
adults will be responded
as sir and ma'am."


Deputy LeStrange said under the lead-


ership of PBSO Colonel Mike Gauger he
learned the value of the school watch pro-
gram in community policing. Consequently
he visits Pahokee Middle/High School once a
week to ensure that his PAL boxers are in
school and behaving. "The boxers will pro-
duce their report cards when asked to do so.
We will help our struggling students. Asst.
Principal Mary Ford is an outstanding asset
to her students and will tutor the PAL pro-
gram participants."
Verbain Curry is the first college student
in the PBSO boxing program in the Glades.
Curry joined the program in 2003 under Sgt.
Sean Flynn and Coach Willie Wiggens.
"Curry is a role model for his peers, we
are proud of him" said Flynn. Curry is a 5
time Florida champion and was ranked
nationally. Last Saturday, Coach LeStrange
brought the Pahokee and Belle Glade PAL
boxing teams to the Boca Raton Police Ath-


letic League to compete. Fifteen-year-old Fe-
lix Sanchez from Pahokee High School won
a convincing three-round decision against
Mark James from Ft. Lauderdale.
Sixteen-year-old Nicholas Sanchez also a
student of Pahokee High School also won a
three-round decision against Kendall Louis
from Hollywood.
"The Sanchez brothers are very hard
working athletes who take their sport very
seriously. "They help each other" said LeS-
trange.
Also eight-year-old Deonte Altman who
is a student at Grove Elementary School
in Belle Glade won a three-round decision
against John Conley from Miami Dade. Ten-
year-old Michael Guerrier from Pahokee
Elementary had a very good 3 round box-
ing match against Zackary Bram from Royal
Palm Beach.

It's true: An3

By Pat Dobbins
Even the cutest, cuddliest, fuzziest, sweet-
est puppy can bite. Most people are bitten
by their own dog or a dog of someone they
know. Unfortunately, some owners actually
promote aggression in their dogs or allow
aggression to go unchecked.
Dog bites are a serious problem. In the
U.S. over 800,000 dog bites are reported an-
nually. Many bite injuries go untreated. On
average, about a dozen people die each year
from dog bite injuries. There are steps we
can take to address this problem.
Who's being bitten? The number of
recorded dog bite injuries is significantly
higher in children than adults. The elderly
and home service providers such as mail
carriers, meter readers and cable workers
are also high on the list of frequent dog bite
victims.
What can you do? Be a responsible pet
owner. Obey leash laws. Use a leash in pub-
lic to ensure you are able to control your
dog. If you have a fenced yard, make sure
the gates are secure.
Make sure your pet is socialized as a pup-
py so it feels comfortable around people and
other animals. Don't put your dog in a posi-
tion where it feels threatened or teased.
How can you and your family avoid be-
ing bitten? Be cautious around strange dogs
and treat your own pet with respect.
Other tips that may prevent or stop a dog
attack include: Don't run past a dog. Dogs
naturally love to chase and catch things.
Don't give them a reason to become excited
or aggressive. Never disturb a dog that's car-
ing for puppies, sleeping or eating. Never
reach through or over a fence to pet a dog.
Dogs can be protective of their territory, and
may see your action as a threat.
If a dog approaches to sniff you, stay still.
In most cases, the dog will go away when it
determines you are not a threat. If you are
threatened by a dog, remain calm. Try not to
scream or yell. What should you do if your
dog bites someone?
Even if the bite can be explained (e.g.,
someone stepped on your dog's tail), it's im-
portant to take responsibility for your dog's
actions by taking these steps: Restrain the
dog immediately. Separate it from the scene
of the attack. Confine it. Wash wounds with
soap and water.
Medical advice should be sought to eval-
uate bite wounds and the risk of rabies or
other infections. Provide important informa-
tion including your name, address and infor-
mation about your dog's most recent rabies
vaccination.
If your dog does not have a current rabies
vaccination, it may be necessary to quaran-
tine it or even euthanize it for rabies testing.
What if you are bitten?
If your own dog bites you, confine it im-
mediately and call your vet to check your
dog's vaccination records. Talk with them
about your dog's aggressive action.
Your vet can examine your dog to make
sure it's healthy, and may provide you with
information about training your dog. If
someone else's dog bites you, first seek
medical treatment for your wound.
Next, contact authorities and tell them ev-

Health Care District employees donate


more than $12,000 for Haiti relief


West Palm Beach, FL Health Care Dis-
trict of Palm Beach County employees made
more than $12,000 in personal financial do-
nations through an internal employee fund-
raising campaign to aid victims of the devas-
tating earthquake in Haiti.
The total $12,143.08 in donations were
presented to the Greater Palm Beach Area
Chapter of the American Red Cross to sup-
port the agency's emergency relief and re-
covery efforts that include raising money
for the Haitian Red Cross and working with
local Haitian-American residents and their
families.
As a part of the relief drive, which con-
cluded Friday, February 12, employees also
donated food supplies for survivors of the
natural disaster.
Many of the Health Care District's 1,000
employees have strong family ties to Haiti,
and some have been personally affected by
the earthquake.
"At a time when the need in Haiti is so
great, we wanted to provide a collaborative
way for our employees to not only help the
earthquake victims in Haiti, but also allow
them to show support for their neighbors
and co-workers who have family there,"
said Dwight D. Chenette, MBA, MPH, Chief
Executive Officer of the Health Care District
of Palm Beach County. "I am deeply moved
by our employees' overwhelming generosity


and good will, which is even more impres-
sive considering many of us have already
donated to various relief efforts in our com-
munity."
Food donations were delivered to Food
for the Poor, an international emergency re-
lief organization based in South Florida that
raises funds and provides direct assistance
to impoverished people throughout Latin
America and the Caribbean.
Because of its ongoing work in Haiti,
Food for the Poor was able to immediately
respond and find alternative ways to deliver
aid in spite of the distribution challenges that
arose in the days following the quake.
Employees contributed to the campaign
via personal check, payroll deduction, and
by donating accrued paid time off, which
the District converted to a monetary contri-
bution.
"The outpouring of support by our em-
ployees for those in need in this impover-
ished country is both impressive and ap-
preciated," said Mr. Chenette. "I am proud
to work with such a charitable, kindhearted
and caring group of employees."
One Health Care District employee was
able to donate his free time and expertise to
provide medical relief in the days following
the quake. Daniel B. Kairys, MD, a surgeon
at Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade,
which is owned and operated by the Health


Care District, was among the first wave of
medical responders after the earthquake
struck on January 12.
He and his Haitian-born wife, Junia, a
physician's assistant, made their way to the
capital city of Port-au-Prince as part of Proj-
ect Medishare for Haiti, a non-profit medical
relief organization, to provide medical care
to those injured in the disaster.

Featured Sports Program of the Week


Clewiston Performing Arts
Center (CPAC)
The Recreation Department is pleased
to offer something for everyone from the
water park for toddlers to the senior citizens'
monthly luncheon/meeting.
One of the highlights of the department is
summer camp, which provides camp activi-
ties for children ages 5 11, and swimming
lessons for children over 5 years of age.
Take a look at the many things the Clewis-
ton Recreation Department has to offer.
There is something for everyone, regardless
of age or interest.
The Clewiston Performing Arts Center
was formed to enable talented members of
our community to enrich our children with
the knowledge of the performing arts.
CPAC is now in its fifth year and more
than two hundred children enrolled last year
for ballet, tap, jazz, tumbling, and beginning
movement. Due to the increased interest in
gymnastics, CPAC now offers four classes,
instead of two.
Last year's Summer Olympics gave a
big boost to the tumbling program requir-
ing the addition of two new classes a three
year old mixed class and an all-boys class
for ages 8 and older. We now have approxi-
mately eighty children from age 3 to 15 in
tumbling.

Future King's students visit their


counterparts in West Palm Beach


While The King's Academy will not
open in Clewiston until August 2010, thirty
Clewiston Christian School students recently
received the opportunity for an early look
at what they might expect when the new
middle and high school opens its doors. On
February 18th, TKA's West Palm Beach cam-
pus hosted all sixth through eighth graders
from CCS. The students and their teachers
rode a King's bus from Clewiston to West
Palm Beach where they were greeted by
TKA's student ambassadors, a student-led
service group. The ambassadors accompa-
nied Clewiston Christian students to a variety
of middle and high school classes including
science, English, math, dance, art, music,
and physical education.
After lunch at TKA's cafeteria, an ice
cream social in the CCS group's honor was
hosted by King's prefect council, a senior
leadership group. The council members dis-
cussed student life, spiritual life, academics,
athletics, and fine arts opportunities at The
King's Academy. Several prefects also told
the Clewiston group about what they liked
best about attending King's. One Clewiston
student asked, "Is there anything that you do
not have here?" CCS students also had the
opportunity to visit TKA's library and some


even took in a Lady Lions softball game.
The King's Academy Clewiston Cam-
pus is currently accepting applications for
7th, 8th, and 9th grades for the 2010-2011
school year. For more information about en-
rolling at The King's Academy at Clewiston
Christian School, please contact Alinda Fair-
cloth, Director of Admissions at (561) 686-
4244, extension 335.
The King's Academy is a nationally rec-
ognized private Christian school serving ap-
proximately 1,200 students from preschool
through twelfth grade and is accredited by
the Southern Association of Colleges and
Schools, the Association of Christian Schools
International, and the Florida Association of
Christian Colleges and Schools. The King's
Academy serves students and their families
across Palm Beach and Hendry Counties
at its main campus at Belvedere Road and
Sansbury's Way in West Palm Beach, Flori-
da, its Clewiston, Florida campus on Carib-
bean Avenue, and its satellite preschool cam-
puses in Greenacres, Palm Beach Gardens,
and Royal Palm Beach, Florida. The King's
Academy also provides remote learning at
TKAOnline.net. More information about The
King's Academy is available online at www.

Clewiston High School alumni encourage students


On March 5, 2010, Clewiston High School
welcomed more than thirty members of the
community who for the most part, gradu-
ated from CHS, in an effort to motivate and
inspire the students to not only do better on
the FCAT and in school, but more impor-
tantly, to do better in life. The event, which
was called an "FCAT Rally," was really a rally
for a change in the hearts and minds of stu-
dents towards their approach to school and
to life.
Students heard from many speakers who
consistently brought forth a message of hope
and support. Mayor Mali Chamness, told stu-
dents that as a united community, "We are


here for you." Reverend Dwayne Brown,
told students an inspiring story of how what
people told him he couldn't do as a youth,
served as motivation for him, to persevere
in life. County commissioners Janet Taylor,
Kevin McCarthy, and Karson Turner all spoke
about believing in yourself and having pride
in being a CHS Tiger. Commissioner Turner,
energetically urged students to get fired up
about the FCAT, about their school, about
their community, but more importantly their
own lives ahead of them.
Commissioner Taylor enumerated on the
importance of positive thinking in order to
succeed while commissioner McCarthy re-


minded students how great this small com-
munity is, and how they could make it even
better. Carl Berner reminded the students
that they only live once, and in order to make
the best of it, they needed to make sure their
character was the best it could be.
"We want our students to understand
and see, how important it is for this commu-
nity that we as a school do better. I think the
fact that more than thirty people from the
community came here to show their sup-
port speaks volumes to our students and to
our teachers" said principal Janice Lee, who
reminded students during the rally, to get a
good night sleep and eat a good breakfast


during the FCAT. And since eating well is es-
sential for taking any test, during the event
some students had an opportunity to win
gift cards to places like Subway and Burger
King.
"Overall, I think this sends a powerful
message to our kids, parents, teachers, and
members of the community, that we are
a team and as a team we are all in this to-
gether" said Mrs. Lee. And by what has hap-
pened at the school this year, it is clear a new
age is dawning at Clewiston High. Only time
will tell if this "new age" will yield a good
harvest or not.

to 296 pounds.
The official judge of the evening was Mr.

of finish, length of body, spring to the rib, de-
sign, productive type, and expected carcass
desirability.

Pork Pride 4-H Club exhibited the Reserve
Champion Hog weighing in at 295 pounds.
Cade's hog was purchased by Avalanche
Construction.
After the placing of the swine came the
Showmanship category. Showmanship is
the ability to exhibit an animal to its best ad-
vantage, as well as the overall care and train-
ing of the animal. The exhibitors were also
judged on control, presentation to the judge,
awareness of the judge, and knowledge of
the species. Planning, practicing, and neat
appearance will assist the exhibitor in being
successful.
In the Junior Swine Showmanship divi-


sion, Kacie Durance achieved the first place
award with Sara Smith in second and Ra-
chael Morrell in third place. Kacie, Sara, and
Rachael are members of the Raisin Pork

Youth Livestock Auction
Results

After many months the 2010 Hendry
County Fair Youth Livestock Exhibitors have
finally seen the results of their hard work.
Four market steers and 64 market hogs
sold for over $80,000 on February 12 at the
Hendry County Fair and Livestock Show. An
additional $28,000 was contributed in the
form of add-on's to the exhibitors.
The Hendry County Fair Youth Livestock
Program is an educational event for 4-H and
FFA members.
The fair is simply the venue for receiving
the rewards for all the hard work and effort
that has been put into their animal projects.
The Hendry County Fair Board is proud to be
a part of the Youth Livestock Program.
We feel that this program develops re-
sponsibility, self reliance, sportsmanship,
and mostly importantly prepares our youth
to be future leaders.
Clewiston and the surrounding com-
munities have once again proven that no
matter the issues in our community or the
economic challenges that the nation faces
we support our youth and are committed to
continuing the traditions of Hendry County
with them.
The youth livestock exhibitors of the 2010
Hendry County Fair would like to thank the
following businesses and individuals for
their support and contributions to the Hen-
dry County Youth Livestock Program.

of agency action may file a petition within fourteen days of receipt of that notice, re Ls rdless of the date of publica-
tion. A pebtioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above, at the time of filing.
The failure of any person to fife a petition within the applicable time period shall constitute a waiver of that persons
right to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 and 120-57, ES., or to intervene in
this proceeding and participate as a party to it. Any subsequent intervention will be only at the approval of the presid-
ing officer upon the filing of a motion in compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrative Code (F,A.C.),
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the permitting authority's action is based must contain the fol-
lowing information:
(a) The name and address of each agency affected and each agency's file or identification number, if known;
(b) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner; name address and telephone number of the peb-
tioner's representative, if any, which Wilt be the address for service purr 'Kies during the course of the proceeding;
and an explanation of how petitboner's substantial rights will be affected by the agency determination;
c) A statement of how and when the petitioner received nobce of the agency action or proposed action;
d) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact, If there are none, the petition must so state;
e) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, as well as the rules and statutes which enbtle petitioner to re-
hef;
(f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitboner contends require reversal or modification of the agen-
cy's proposed action; and,
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stabng precisely the action petitioner wishes the agency to take
with respect to the agency's proposed action.
A pebtion that does not dispute the material facts upon which the permitting authority's action is based shall state
that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by
Rule 28-106.301, F.A.C.
Because the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition
means that the permitbng authority's final action may be different from the position taken by it in this nobce of in-
tent. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected by any such final decision of the permitting authority on the
applicabon have the right to pebtion to become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set
forth above.
Mediation is not available for this proceeding.
In addition to the above, pursuant to 42 United States Cock: (LTS.C.) Section 766140(2), any person may petition
the Administrator of the EPA within 60 (sixty) days of the expiration of the Administrator's 45 (forty-rive) day review
period as established at 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(1), to object to issuance of any Title V permit. Any pettlon shall
he based only on objections to the Title V permit that were raised with reasonable specificity during the 30 (thirty)
day public comment period provided in this notice, unless the pebtioner demonstrates to the Administrator of the EPA
that it was impracbcable to raise such objections within the comment period or unless the grounds for such objection
arose after the comment period. Filing of a petition with the Administrator of the EPA does not stay the effective date
of any Title V pormin properly issued pursuant to the provisions of Chapter 62-213, FA.C. tibtions filed with the Ad-
ministrator of EPA must meet the requirements of 42 U.S.C. Section 7661d(b)(2) and must be filed with the Adminis-
trator of the EPA at; U.S. EPA, 401 M Street, S.W,, Washington, D.C. 20460.

What have you taught your
kids?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Proverbs 4:10-11 it says "Hear, 0 my
son, and receive my sayings, and the years
of thy life shall be many. I have taught thee
in the ways of wisdom; I have led thee in
right paths." Can you as a parent say that to
your children?
Many times I have heard parents lament,
"What have I done wrong?" Parents are all
too willing to take the blame when their chil-
dren make poor choices or get themselves
into trouble. Parents want so much for their
children to succeed and have pleasant, care-
free lives. That is why there is special joy in
seeing children succeed. Mothers and Fathers
can feel pride and take some credit fo their
children when they do well. It is an honor
to the parents of children who succeed, that
they have done a good job of bringing them
up. When parents take interest in their chil-
dren and treat them with respect and care,
they are giving them as great a gift as is pos-
sible. Those children who come from fami-
lies where they are supposed to have the
greatest chance of living good lives when
they are grown.
Our heavenly Father has tried to instruct
us in the ways that lead to eternal life. He
has allowed us to make our own choices,
though, and we must take responsibility for
them, bad or good. It is His greatest wish
that we follow the wisdom of His will. When
we do so it is to His glory as well as ours,
that we have learned well. By listening to
our heavenly Father, our lives are enriched
and the years of our lives will be multiplied.
The Bible says, "Train up a child in the
way he should go, and when he is old he
will not depart from it." Have you taught you
kids what Sin is (I John 3:4, James 4:17),
what the wage of sin is (Romans 6:23), how
their sins can be forgiven (John 14:6, Mark
16:15-16, Acts 2:38, 8:26-39), and what it
means to live the Christian Life (Galatians
2:20). Have you taught them the importance
of Church attendance (Hebrews 10:24-31),
the importance of the Lord's Supper (John
6:53-55), the importance of giving as God
has prospered them (I Cor. 16:2, Malachi
3:10) and the importance of Personal Evan-
gelism (John 15:1-8. Have you set the right
example by doing these things yourself
(Matthew 6:33). If "Love" (Agape) means to
"seek the HIGHEST GOOD", are you seeking
their highest good do you really love them
by this definition?

Giving in hard times; a cau-
tionary note
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Episcopal Church, Clewiston
A recent newscast reported that funds
raised to feed starving people in Ethiopia
were diverted for the purchase of arms. I en-
visioned all of the well-meaning people that
wished to help people with a real need only
to be victimized. Their hopes were turned
into weapons of war, probably to oppress
the very people that they might have been
trying to help. We are cautioned to "watch
out for false prophets. They come to you


in sheep's clothing but inwardly they are
ferocious wolves (Matthew 7:15)." People
misrepresent for personal gain and do great
harm to those who really want to help.
Periodically, I get announcements about
persons impersonating clergy who seek to
raise funds for some "cause" and want the
support of unsuspecting people. One lady
in a church I served was asked to support
Church-run orphanage overseas and asked
me about it. I wrote to our Church in the
region to check on the legitimacy of the so-
licitation for her; she was pleased to know
just where her money was going from an
independent source. In these times of fi-
nancial hardships, there are more and more
solicitations from Churches and to Church
members for aid; some being questionable
and of doubtful veracity.
Like the buyer, the giver must also be-
ware in his efforts to do good. Churches are
vulnerable and I am always suspect when
a request comes from a source that I really
do not know much about. As a rule, I get
in touch with the supposed benefactor (if I
can) and check out the organization that is
purported to be represented. Recently, the
clergy of our own Ministerial Association
were discussing how we could help those
who were victims of recent earthquake
damage in Haiti; and the consensus among
the clergy was that we would work with or-
ganized, known charities who had a track
record of helping in the area we wished to
serve.
All too often, it is in times of crises that
people want to help, only to support a cause
(or group) other than what they intended.
My recommendation to people is to chan-
nel their resources through local Churches
(or local organizations) that have some
contact with the region, the cause, the need
for which support is solicited. In the past I
have called my neighboring clergy when
there is a question about a cause, and oth-
ers have checked with me when someone
represents himself/herself as a member of a
Church I serve. Funds are tight these days;
money is short and the needs are great. My
hope is to make every dollar count and go
to the causes intended; to (literally) get "the
biggest bang for the buck!" The old adage,
"When in doubt, check it out" still applies -
and maybe results in resources going where
they are intended, really helping people in
need, and doing good. I am happy to help
people to check and would suggest that
local resources would be the best place to
begin.

The key lessons life taught
me
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I thought, "Age should speak; advanced
years should teach wisdom." But it is the
spirit in a man, the breath of the Almighty,
that gives him understanding. It is not only
the old who are wise, not only the aged
who understand what is right. Therefore I
say: "Listen to me; I too will tell you what I
know." (Job 32:7-10)
Time heals almost everything. Give time
time. However good or bad a situation is, it
will change.
Don't take yourself so seriously. No one
else does. Believe in miracles. Your children


get only one childhood.
Don't audit life. Show up and make the
most of it now. Growing old beats the alter-
native -- dying young.
Envy is a waste of time. You already have
all you need. The best is yet to come. Yield. If
we all threw our problems in a pile and saw
everyone else's, we'd grab ours back.
No matter how you feel, get up, dress up
and show up. Life isn't tied with a bow, but
it's still a gift.
Burn the candles, use the nice sheets,
wear the fancy lingerie. Don't save it for a
special occasion. Today is special.
Over prepare, then go with the flow. Be
eccentric now. Don't wait for old age to
wear purple. The most important sex organ
is the brain.
No one is in charge of your happiness
but you. Frame every so-called disaster with
these words "In five years, will this matter?"
All that truly matters in the end is that you
loved. God loves you because of who God is,
not because of anything you did or didn't do.
Get outside every day. Miracles are waiting
everywhere. (By Regina Brett, 90 years old).

Phone Discounts Available to CenturyLink Customers

With Link-Up America and Lifeline Assistance Programs, qualified low-income telephone custom-
ers can save money on installation charges and the monthly rate for basic local residential service.
This includes access to long distance carriers, Emergency Services, Operator Services, Directory
Assistance and Toll Blocking.
Link-Up America is a federally-sponsored program that provides discounted service installation
charges to qualifying low-income customers. It provides a 50 percent discount, up to a maximum
of $30 for new residential installation charges for telephone service. The balance of the installation
charges can be paid, interest free, over a 12 month period. In addition, the monthly service charge
for toll restriction will be waived for customers requesting or required to have the service.
Lifeline Assistance is another federally-sponsored program for low-income customers. It provides a
discount to the monthly charge for basic residential telephone service. Lifeline Assistance Program
rates have been reduced and guidelines have been changed to allow for more low-income custom-
ers.
To qualify for both programs, customers may enroll in the CenturyLink Lifeline program by pro-
viding verification that they meet state low-income eligibility requirements. In addition, Tribal Tele-
phone Assistance is available for those living on federally-recognized American Indian Tribal lands.
If you live in a CenturyLink service area, please call 1-800-366-8201 or visit www.centurylink.
com/lifeline with questions or to request an application for the Lifeline/Link-Up programs.

Referendum

on the Clewiston side.
"I think it means that both sides of the
county have a strong interest in moving for-
ward with modern health care in Hendry
County," said Robbie Castellanos, Hendry
Regional Medical Center Foundation chair,
who noted the polarized votes in LaBelle.
"As foundation members, we're excited,
thrilled, relieved to go forward."
Bond language specified that the project
could use up to 1 mill of the hospital's exist-
ing taxes from property, with no immediate
need to raise those taxes as a result of the
vote.
The much-publicized item was necessary,
administrators said, to continue the push to
attract more practicing physicians and spe-
cialty doctors to the area. It would also ad-
dress an aging facility that desperately needs
a replacement, and provide more services at
a satellite office in LaBelle, they said.
Karson Turner, county commissioner,
said he was "pleasantly surprised" with the

being struck."
The surprising thing is that Ms. Fish, de-
spite fighting off the attacking dog, was "not
afraid of the dog."
It had always been a docile animal, and
maybe it's idea of playing went beyond its
intended goal, she said.
Still, Ms. Fish hopes that resident will spot
the dog, an approximately 60-pound animal,
brown or cocoa in color with scars across its
body and alert either the police department
or the sheriff's office so that an animal con-
trol worker can be dispatched to retrieve it.
Its capture is the only thing standing be-


Most people in Clewiston probably have
used cell phones sitting around the house.
Often, they don't know how to get rid of
old cell phones, when they get new ones.
Well, now there is a place to take those old
cell phones for safe recycling, and in the
process help a good cause.
The Friends of the Clewiston Public
Library will be holding a cell phone drive
starting on March 8. Anybody who has old
cell phones can bring them to the library,
where there will be a collection box wait-
ing to receive them.
When enough cell phones have been
gathered, the Friends will send them off
to help raise funds to support library pro-
grams and activities.
"It's a great way to raise funds to help
the library, and at the same time to help


election results.
"I thought it was going to be a much
closer vote than what it was," he said. '"As a
resident of Clewiston, this solidifies for me,
that the hospital is something that's on ev-
eryone's radar. It was really a slam dunk."
Much of the work involved in raising
awareness about the critical vote, including
the hospital's intent and future plans, was
carried out by the hospital foundation and
its board members, who fielded concerned
questions about the viability of constructing
a $12 million facility when revenues from
taxes dwindled and charges for uncompen-
sated care continued their upward trend.
Dr. Jim Forbes, a member of that founda-
tion board, and on Tuesday an elated sup-
porter of the measure, seemed to explain
the reasoning behind the move during a
telephone interview Wednesday morning.
"I stated this two years ago, that if they
don't do this, they might as well plan on
closing the hospital," he said, worried that
residents would have to drive 30 minutes to
Belle Glade for urgent care. "If there wasn't
a need, I'd say close the sucker down -- it's a
lot of money. But there's a need here."


tween Ms. Fish and a possibly aggressive ra-
bies treatment to ensure she is alright.
Animal control must quarantine the dog
-- especially in this case where the owner is
not sure of the animal's exact vaccination
history -- and study it for ten days to deter-
mine whether or not it carries the disease.
She said she believes her 29-year-old
tenant when he says that he rescued the pit
bull from someone who was abusing it, and
also believes maybe the body scars came
from the possibility that the dog was fought
against other pit bulls.
On Tuesday, she remained thankful that
she wasn't hurt worse.
"I consider it as a blessing," she said.
"There's a lesson in here someplace, but
it's a blessing that the dog and myself are as
good as we are and not dead."


people get rid of the old cell phones they
can't use anymore," says Frank Harris,
President of the Friends of the Clewiston
Public Library and the Clewiston Public Li-
brary Advisory Board, "I bet a lot of people
in town have old cell phones, and don't
know what to do with them."
It's absolutely free to donate cell phones
at the library, too. There is no cost, nor any
time commitment except to bring the old
cell phones to the collection box inside the
building.
All the Friends need right now is the cell
phone and battery. Chargers and other ac-
cessories have no value, and the Friends
cannot make use of them.
For more information, please call Li-
brary Director Eric Tommerdahl at 863-
983-1493.
