County moves on new


Facility to serve

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Clewiston News
Hendry County hopes to con-
struct a "one-stop shop" facility
in Clewiston to house a number
of critical county offices and de-
partments. While the timeline is
uncertain -- county officers made
the decision to build just weeks
ago -- the project is expected to
cost $1.7 million and will be lo-
cated on county-owned land near
the health department offices on
Olympia.
The city of Clewiston had eyed
the development, but at the final
hour backed off from entering


into a partnership in the county's
plans.
Among the largest departments
to be housed at the new building
is the Clewiston side of the Hen-
dry County Sheriff's Office. Other
offices will include the tax collec-
tor, property appraiser, clerk and
supervisor of elections. Adminis-
tration offices, building licenses,
code enforcement and SHIP will
also be moved to the new 11,200
square foot building.
Many of these offices now oper-
ate at the Clewiston Town Center,
also known as the K-Mart Plaza.
"We've been working toward
this, and we have quite a bit of
work to do," said Judi Kenning-
ton-Korf, Hendry County admin-
istrator.
The city of Clewiston early on

that the community will recognize
their work and reciprocate.
No, they don't propose that you

Pam Kelley is the president
of the Sugar Festival Committee,
which in preparation for the April
event started meeting in December
to formalize plans.
She has been involved in the
festival in one way or another al-

the festival she can be found riding
around the festival grounds mak-
ing sure that everything goes off
without a hitch.
"I check on things and put out

Letter to the editor


A great success
Thank you citizens of Clewiston and the
surrounding areas for helping to make the
First Annual Susan G. Komen Rally for Cure
Golf Tournament a tremendous success. On
Saturday, March 6, 120 golfers participated
in a golf scramble to help raise awareness
and funds for the Komen Breast Cancer
Foundation. Men and women including
families, friends, business associates and
new acquaintances made up the teams of
foursomes. The day began at 11:30 with
registration and lunch, followed by shotgun
starts at 1 pm. Golfers and dinner guests


were served hors d'eourves at the Clewis-
ton Country Club followed by a buffet din-
ner for 165 people and awarding of prizes.
Over two hundred fifty pink ribbons deco-
rated a tree in honor of cancer survivors and
in memory of those who have lost their life
to cancer. It was truly a wonderful day for
a good cause and the event far exceeded
all of our expectations. Thank you business
sponsors, individual sponsors, participants,
donors and volunteers. We are proud to re-
port that through your participation and gen-
erosity we were able to raise $12,500. These
proceeds will go to the Susan G. Komen
Southwest Florida Affiliate. The Southwest


Florida Affiliate of Susan G. Komen for the
Cure was established in November of 2002
and is charged with the purpose of further-
ing the Komen mission in Charlotte, Collier,
Glades, Hendry, and Lee Counties. Up to 75
percent of the net proceeds raised by the Af-
filiate will remain at the local level to fund
a variety of community-based breast health
education and breast cancer screening and
treatment projects for the medically under-
served. Thank you again for your help in the
fight against breast cancer. Working together
we can make a difference.
Sincerely,
Clewiston Ladies Golf Association

orectal cancer is the second leading cause
of cancer-related deaths in the United States
for men and women combined. Each year,
about 150,000 Americans are diagnosed
with colorectal cancer and about 50,000 die
from the disease. Regular screening through
colonoscopy can prevent colorectal cancer.
Lakeside Medical Center offers colonoscopy
screenings as an outpatient service.
"The problem with colon cancer is that
you could have it for years before symptoms
appear," said Daniel B. Kairys, MD, a surgeon
who performs colonoscopy screenings at
Lakeside Medical Center. "By the time colon

Since it may take ten to fifteen years for pol-

screenings will detect colorectal cancers at
an earlier stage when the disease is easier
to treat.
The procedure itself takes only about 20
minutes. Patients are sedated so they are
comfortable and asleep during the proce-
dure. A thin, flexible tube called a colono-
scope is inserted through the body into the
colon. A video camera on the end of the
colonoscope is connected to a display moni-

inside of the colon. If detected, growths like
polyps can be removed. The patient wakes

prevent colorectal cancer altogether. People
who have no identified risk factors should
begin regular screening at age 50, according
to the American Cancer Society. If the test
is normal, then another screening should
follow in 10 years. Those with a family his-
tory of colorectal cancer, such as a mother,
father, brother or sister who has had the dis-
ease, should speak with their primary care
physician about screening at a younger age
and/or getting screened more frequently.
March is National Colorectal Cancer Aware-
ness month. To schedule a colonoscopy at
Lakeside Medical Center, consult with your
primary care physician, who will provide the
necessary referrals.
Nikerson Geneve, DO, is a primary care


preventive screenings like colonoscopies, to
oversee all aspects of his patients' health.
"As a primary care physician, I'm at the
helm of my patients' medical care," said Dr.
Geneve. "I have a relationship not only with
my patients, but also with the specialist who
is taking care of them. It's a team effort to
ensure and promote the well-being of the
patient."
Dr. Geneve's practice is located at 941 S.E.

Jesup: Outmanned and Outgunned


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
On February 8, 1838, General Jesup met
with several Seminole leaders near Fort Ju-
piter and negotiated peace terms. The Semi-
noles asked only that they be allowed to live
on reservation lands in the Everglades. Je-
sup agreed to write a letter to Washington
officials, if the Seminoles would agree to set
up camps adjacent to the Army encamp-
ment and wait patiently and peacefully for
word from Washington.
A letter arrived from Washington on
March 16, 1838, from the Secretary of War,
Poinsett, denying the Seminole's request. In
the letter, Poinsett instructed General Jesup
to continue the war until all Seminoles were
shipped west. General Jesup requested a
meeting with the Seminole leaders, so he
could review Poinsett's decision, but got no
response.
Jesup now felt the Seminoles were act-
ing "gun shy" and might somehow be privy
to Poinsett's decision, so he immediately
dispatched Colonel David E. Twiggs and the
Second Dragoons to capture the Indians be-
fore they could slip away into the trackless
Everglades.
Twiggs brought back 513 Seminoles, of
whom 151 were warriors. It was the largest
capture in the Second Seminole Indian War,
but raises a perplexing question by histori-
ans today.
How did a group of Seminoles that large
get caught napping by General Jesup, whose
reputation as a truce breaker preceded him
in the Everglades?
Shortly after this episode, General Je-
sup asked to be relieved of his command
because the Washington bureaucrats had
refused to grant the Seminoles, reservation
lands in the Everglades.
Jesup was very unhappy about this deci-
sion because the Everglades were swamp-
lands that no Americans desired, yet lands


A good corporate bean counter could
easily surmise that based on these figures,
there were approximately 1,800 hostile Sem-
inoles remaining in Florida.
On the other hand, an anthropologist
would quickly note an error in this figure,
stipulating that it failed to exclude the wom-
en, children and elderly, who weren't com-
batants.
All this speculation brings us to the


They were literally fighting for their lives
in a war that affected every facet of their life.
The Seminoles had become a beleaguered
people, fighting a war they could never win.
This life style was very stressing to the
Seminoles, whose culture, prior to the war
was sedimentary, living in villages, subsist-
ing on crops they grew and the livestock
they raised. Now they were a hunted people,
refugees in their own homeland that were


"The Seminoles had become a beleaguered people,
fighting a war they could never win."


question, how many Seminole warriors re-
mained in Florida after General Taylor took
command in 1838?
Using a simple formula, we can derive a
rough, but somewhat inaccurate figure that
still reveals a startling statistic. Let's assume
that the average size Seminole family con-
sisted of four children, two parents and two
grandparents.
This formula would equate to one able
bodied male warrior per eight Seminoles.
Divide the number eight into 1,800 and
we have 225 warriors. Again, this figure is
a rough estimate, so let's compensate and
raise the number to 300, which is probably
an overestimate.
A shocking revelation; the highest pos-
sible estimate shows only 300 Seminole
warriors were challenging the United States
in 1838!
The 300 Seminole warriors are reminis-
cent of an event that occurred thousands of
years earlier in ancient Greece, when 300
Spartan warriors challenged the entire Per-
sian Army at the Battle of Thermopylae. His-
tory repeats itself, so it is fair to say that the


forced to flee each time someone cried
"wolf."
Many of the Seminoles began to starve
because of the relentless chase. Soldiers saw
this terrible plight, while the Seminoles were
camping at Fort Jupiter and waiting on word
from Washington. The women wore ragged
clothes that scarcely covered their naked-
ness, while those that had nothing, were
forced to wear the discarded corn sacks that
soldiers threw away.
Seminole women were observed pick-
ing up the kernels of corn dropped by the
horses, so great was their starvation. This
wasn't an isolated story, but a phenomenon
that would repeat itself again in the South
during the Civil War, when Northern Armies
invaded.
Years ago, a college friend of mine told
me how his great- great grandparents sur-
vived a Tennessee winter by following a
Northern Army's mule train and living off
the undigested kernels of corn they dug
from the mule manure.
The Seminole war, like all other wars,
had a great impact on the children. No
doubt many died from starvation or were
weakened and fell victim to diseases that
took their lives.
There were also the orphans that lost
their fathers, mothers and sometimes entire
families. A Seminole told me about a skir-
mish that took place near to present day
Immokalee during the war.
Soldiers surprised a small band of Semi-
noles and attacked. A little girl was grabbed
and carried by a relative into the safety of
the Everglades. The girl's mother was never
found or heard from again.
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.

sil display of prehistoric animals that once

that would appease the Seminoles and end
the war. On May 15, 1838, a disgusted Gen-
eral Jesup turned his command over to Gen-
eral Zachary Taylor.
The retiring General Jesup had been very
successful during his 18-month campaign.
Statistics show 2,900 Indians were captured
and 100 killed during that period of time.
Commanders before Jesup had been very
unsuccessful, but they too had captured or
killed Seminoles.
At the beginning of the Second Seminole
Indian War, military analysts estimated there
were approximately 5,000 Seminoles living
in Florida. This estimate included the Semi-
noles living on the Apalachicola reservations
(200) that had elected not to fight, but chose
to move west.


Seminole warriors were like their prototype,
the Spartans, who fought to preserve their
homelands against a nation that wished to
deprive them of land and liberty.
The Seminoles were not only outmanned,
but also outgunned because they had other
logistical problems to overcome.
The American soldiers were supplied
with arms, food, clothing, and medical at-
tention.
Their sole mission was "search and de-
stroy." Unlike the soldiers, the Seminole
men not only fought, but in between battles,
hunted and foraged to support the families
they kept hidden away.
While on the run the Seminoles lost arti-
cles that they couldn't replace. Something as
simple as a knife was irreplaceable because
the Seminoles had few places to trade.

Choices
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Every day of our lives we are confronted
with choices. Every choice we make, big or
small, has consequences. For better or for
worse, we have to live with those conse-
quences. Some choices we make determine
the quality of our lives and the quality of our
relationships. Some of the choices we make
determine our destiny and have eternal con-
sequences.
Edwin Thomas was a master on stage. In
1863, he was with his actor brother John in
the play Julius Caesar. It was a foreshadow-
ing of things to come that Edwin's brother
who played the assassin in Julius Caesar is
the same John who took the role of assassin
in Ford's Theatre on an April night in 1865,
when he stole into the rear of the box in the
Washington Theater and shot Abraham Lin-
coln.
As you may have guessed, the last name
of the brothers was Booth: Edwin Thomas
Booth and John Wilkes Booth. Edwin was
never the same after that night. Shame from
his brothers' crime drove him into retire-
ment. He might never have returned to stage
had it not been for what happened at a New
Jersey train station. Edwin was awaiting his
coach when a well dressed young man,
pressed by the crowd, lost his footing and
fell in front of an oncoming train.
Without hesitation, Edwin locked a leg
around a railing, grabbed the man and
pulled him to safety.


Edwin did not recognize the young man
he'd rescued. The knowledge came weeks
later in a letter he carried in his pocket to
the grave, thanking Edwin for saving the life
of Robert Todd Lincoln, the son of Abraham
Lincoln.
Edwin and James Booth. Same father,
mother, profession, and passion. Yet one
chose life, the other death. How could it
happen? I don't know, but the story is not
unique.
Look at the two criminals on the cross-
es on either side of Jesus. The two crimi-
nals have much in common. Convicted by
the same system, condemned to the same
death, surrounded by the same crowd.
Equally close to the same Jesus.
How can two men see the same Je-
sus and one choose to mock Him and the
other choose to pray to Him? I don't know,
but they did. And when one prayed, Jesus
loved him enough to save him. When the
other mocked, Jesus loved him enough to
let him go even though it probably tore at
His heart.
God allowed them the choice. He does
the same for us.
God's heart for each of us is to make
choices that lead to abundant life. He says
to His people through Moses, "I have set be-
fore you life and death, blessings and curs-
es. Now choose life, so that you and your
children may live and that you may love the
Lord your God, listen to His voice, and hold
fast to Him." (Gen.30:19-20)
To choose Jesus is to choose life.


Good Friday; What to do in
the darkest of moments
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The next ten days recount the darkest
and most joyful days in this world. Sunday
is Palm Sunday, a moment of the Lord's tri-
umphal entry, then celebration of the Last
Supper with His disciples, arrest, trial, cru-
cifixion and death; all to be overshadowed
by Easter. We see the worst that the world
can do overcome by what God can do. It is a
witness to us all that good will triumph over
evil, right over wrong, life over death.
Much of the New Testament was written
during times of persecution, intolerance,
corruption and human tragedies of one sort
or another. Good Friday is the culmination
of what the world has to dish out; unfair-
ness, humiliation, persecution, the death of
an innocent, tragedy equal to any we have
seen before or since. With it, we regard the
responses of the central character in it all;
Jesus of Nazareth.
His last words convey to us a message
about our own tragedies and bad times, too.
Some are very human: "I thirst" or "Woman
behold your son..." Some are messages of
hope; "This day you will be with me in Para-
dise." At the darkest of moments there is still
hope; Jesus makes this plain to those who
rate themselves as unworthy but whom He
will take with Him. When the end comes,
Jesus says simply "It is finished!" and gives


up His spirit (Luke 19:30). I hear Him saying
that the world has done its worst and now
that is over; from henceforth things will be
different for God's people. There is another
passage that some interpret as seeing this
dark day so affecting Jesus that He feels for-
saken by God.
During these darkest of moments, Jesus
is quoted "My God, my God, why have you
forsaken me (Matthew 27:46)" It would be
easy to think the Lord felt forsaken by God;
but that wouldn't be like God to forsake His
son, nor for the Son to be forsaken by the
Father. What then? These words are also
found elsewhere in Scripture. They are from
the Book of Psalms, Psalm 22:1. "My God,
my God, why have you forsaken me?..."
Psalms ends with the reminder that "My soul
shall live for him, they shall be known as the
Lord's forever.
They shall come and make known to a
people yet unborn the saving deeds that He
has done. (Psalm 22:29-30)" Jesus was recit-
ing from the Psalter! He was worshipping,
saying the prayers from the great Prayer
Book of the Old Testament the Book of
Psalms! Feeling forsaken? No, worshipping!
A Psalm being recited is an appropriate act
of worship for this particular moment. Je-
sus, even at the worst of moments in histo-
ry, makes His spiritual offering to the Father.
That's the message of Good Friday to us all:
in the darkest of times, God is still ready to
hear, our prayers aren't in vain!
The Psalms also remind us God shall
help, "...and that right early." "The Lord Al-
mighty is with us"- always.

Career Day at Clewiston High [


Clewiston High School is hosting its
Career Day on April 21. Please help us
empower our students and consider par-
ticipating in this program to impart your
knowledge on our future leaders.
This event will be held at Clewiston
High School from 7:45 a.m. to 2:25 p.m.
Businesses may set up a booth any time
after 7:20 a.m. Presenters will be provided
a light lunch. The primary objective of Ca-
reer Day is to acquaint students with the
various opportunities available for their
consideration. You are encouraged to dis-
cuss the types of careers available within


your organization and the qualifications for
those positions. These opportunities will
allow students to glimpse the tremendous
array of career opportunities open to them
and to better understand the process of
considering prospective career choices.
We hope that you will consider par-
ticipating in Career Day. It is truly a worth-
while event that offers you the opportunity
to shape the future of our youth.
If you can assist us on April 21, please
contact Greg Korean or Bianca Robinson
at 863-983-1520. Thanks for your time and
consideration of this exciting event.

Random Acts of Kindness
Students from the Random Acts of Kindness Club at Clewiston Christian
School were joined by members of the Youth Group from First United Meth-
odist Church as they harvested fresh broccoli that was donated by a local
farmer. The broccoli was then donated to the Food Pantry at the Methodist
Church in Clewiston. Sarah McKowan, Bailyn Mills and Cassidy Lee, mem-
bers of the RAK Club, worked as a team to harvest broccoli to donate to the
First United Methodist Church of Clewiston.

What killed Jesus Christ?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
If a death certificate were issued today for
Jesus Christ's death, it would read: "cardiac
and respiratory arrest due to severe pulmo-
nary edema due to traumatic and shock
due to crucifixion. That's the conclusion of
Frederick Zugibe, A Rockland County, N.Y.,
medical examiner who wrote a few years
ago "The Cross and the Shroud," a report on
his 30-year study of the crucifixion.
The investigation "was by far the most
challenging and intriguing experience that I
have ever encountered," said Zugibe, who
was also an adjunct associate professor of
pathology of Columbia University.
Zugibe pieced together a grimly detailed
picture of what he and theologian believe
happened to Christ in the hours before His
death. His findings are based on research
and the markings from the Shroud of Turin -
which he believes is Christ's burial cloth.
He writes that after Christ suffered intense
mental fatigue in the Garden of Gethsemane,
He was beaten with a whip made of leather
tails that had small weights of metal or bone.
Jesus was reduced to a bleeding, mangled
mass of welts and swellings, in traumatic
shock, no longer able to stand, and craving
water," Zugibe wrote.


He laterwas beaten with reeds and forced
to wear a crown of thorns. While carrying
His 50-pound cross to Golgotha, He suffered
severe lose of body fluids in the midday heat.
By the time of crucifixion, "Christ robe was
literally glued to His body," by blood from
His wounds, Zugibe said.
To study the effects of being suspended
from the cross, Zugibe conducted his experi-
ments with a number of male volunteers
who hung from a 92 X 78 inch cross with
leather gauntlets around their hands and a
belt around their feet.
The volunteers showed an increase of
pain, psychological feelings, sweating, re-
spiratory distress and muscle twitching after
seven to eight minutes.
"A striking observation noted in all sus-
pended volunteers was that the body did
not touch the cross except in the shoulder
region, where there was very slight contact,
" Zugibe wrote. The result was a position
with the head arched backward against the
upright vertical section of the cross to relieve
the strain on the shoulders. From the re-
search, Zugibe said it is hard to understand
why Pontius Pilate reportedly was shocked
that Christ died in less than six hours.
"The significance of mental suffering is
nor frequently realized," Zugibe wrote. "Je-
sus was severely flogged. Add to this the
scourging and the crowning of thorns, the
effects of carrying the cross and the cruci-
fixion process, and anyone with a medical
background cringes and wonders converse-
ly how He lasted as long as He did."

Children need guidance through courts


By Patty Brant
INI Florida
In a complicated world such as the
courts, adults can rely on professionals like
lawyers to guide them through the legal
maze. So how much more difficult is it for a
child? How easy is it for a child to get lost in
a place like the court system?
In that very adult world, Guardians ad
Litem (GAL) step in on behalf of the child.
Guardians speak as an independent voice
for a child caught up in the court system.
Guardians are assigned to children who
are the victims of abuse, neglect and aban-
donment not custody cases. If it is deter-
mined that a child caught up in abuse or
neglect cases should be removed from the
home, he or she will be placed with a rela-
tive if possible. Barring that, the child will be
placed in a foster home or possibly a shelter
to safeguard them. In any case, it's a scary
prospect for a child, to be taken out of the
life they know even if it's abusive and
placed in a strange environment.
The GAL is there for the child. They are
volunteers who spend time with these chil-
dren, talk to them, find out what they need
and then get them the help they need. They
are the lifeline for a child who otherwise can
end up lost in the legal system.
Once a judge has the basic facts of a case,
the parent will get a case plan from the De-
partment of Children & Families a list of
things to do in order to "get right" with the
law. The plan may include things like taking
anger management or parenting classes and
undergoing drug testing and counseling.
That's a major issue affecting children. In
Hendry/Glades, some 90 percent of all abuse
and neglect cases are drug related.
In February of this year there were 1,258
children involved in dependency court in the
20th Circuit.
Circuit Judge Christine Greider has been
handling dependency cases, but recently
they have fallen to County Judge James


Sloan. Judge Sloan has had lengthy experi-
ence with the Guardian ad Litem program,
going back to the early '80s, with the firm he
first began practicing law with.
"I have always found it to be a very
worthwhile program," he said. "These are
advocates for the child. The child is the only
interest the Guardian has in a case."
Often the parents are battling the court
and are involved in their own interests. Un-
fortunately, the parents' interests are not
always right for everyone. That can leave
a child adrift on his or her own when they
desperately need a "partner" to see them
through.
Providing support through the legal pro-
cess is every Guardian's sole purpose.
Sometimes there is valid reason to re-
move a child from the home. The Guardian
is a friendly face the child can relate to, who
offers a different perspective on cases that
can be very complicated.
If parents do not agree with the judge's
ruling, they can make their argument to the
court.
The judge is the person who requests a
GAL for cases and the program makes the
assignment. Guardians have the option of
choosing to accept a case or not. For in-
stance, they may feel more comfortable
with small children or older children or the
other way around.
Judge Sloan said he wants to be confi-
dent that the GAL has invested the neces-
sary time and research to adequately repre-
sent the child. He wants to know that they
have talked to the child and have a working
knowledge of the facts. He looks for a rea-
sonable analysis from the Guardian.
Most GALs speak for the child in the
courtroom, but sometimes, depending on
the child's age and the case, the judge will
speak directly to the child.
The GAL office is required to appoint a
Guardian within 30 days. However, there are
just not enough Guardians to meet the de-
mand. If a GAL cannot be found for a child


in need, Judge Sloan said he believes that
child, and the court, lose a valuable asset.
If no GAL is available, Judge Sloan said he
then looks even harder at the case himself.
"I go through the same analysis the
Guardian would," he said. The more infor-
mation you have, the better decision you
can make. Without a Guardian, something
could be missed. "That troubles me," the
judge explained.
Angela Boykin has been with the program
for three years. Retired from the Department
of Corrections, she then took a job as secre-
tary with the program. Seeing the need, she
soon opted to move into a larger role and is
now the program's Volunteer Supervisor and
Recruiter for Hendry County. Ms. Boykin had
been with the GAL Program in Port Charlotte
since 2007 and holds a Bachelor's Degree in
Human Services.
At this time she handles eight cases her-
self, but said she realizes that's not the best
way to serve the children's needs. Her prior-
ity is to increase the number of Guardians in
Hendry/Glades. Her goal is to have a Guard-
ian for every child who needs one. Hendry/
Glades currently has a total 15 GAL volun-
teers and 61 cases, so not all children have
Guardians assigned to them. There simply
aren't enough to go around. Ms. Boykin said
Guardians are especially needed in Clewis-
ton and Glades County. Only one Guardian
is located in Clewiston and one in Glades
County. Glades has eight cases at this time.
GALs in Hendry and Glades work on either
side of the county line, but it's much easier if
a GAL is closer to where the child lives.
The requirements to be a volunteer GAL
are not stringent. You must be at least 19
years old. Volunteers are screened and will
have a personal interview followed by a
background check. No experience required
- just a desire to help.
Classes for new volunteers are coming
up in April. It involves three days of train-


ing 24 hours in the classroom, two hours
of court observation and two hours for the
new volunteer to spend with his or her case
coordinator. There is also Saturday training
in Fort Myers for those who cannot do the
weekday sessions.
Most volunteers only do one case at a
time, averaging just 3-10 hours per month.
Volunteers set appointments with the foster
care family, relatives or may come unan-
nounced.
Aside from visiting the child, volunteers
may talk to the child's teacher, counselor or
psychologist. They write a report on their
findings for the court, report to the judge
and may be asked for an oral statement in
the courtroom.
Part of the training includes respect for
various cultures; Department of Children &
Families; lawyer and court procedure; and
talking to experienced Guardians. Mentors
are also available for new Guardians. GALs
can even request children of a certain age,
gender or background.
Once a child has been removed from the
home, the ultimate goal is to return them to
the parent once the case management goals
have been met. However, parental rights
may be terminated in severe cases.
Most GAL volunteers stay with the pro-
gram for a long time evidence that it is a
very rewarding experience.
The program is in need of volunteers, es-
pecially those who are bilingual. Please call
Angela Boykin at 674-4190 if you have a little
time and love to share with a child in need
and being a Guardian ad Litem sounds like
something that might interest you.
The next classes will be held at the De-
partment of Children & Families conference
room, 485 Cowboy Way, LaBelle, from 8:30
a.m.-5:30 p.m. June 4, 5 and 12.
(Next week: Interviews with a local volunteer)

roll, performing.
There will be plenty to see and do, not to
mention eat, at the site of the festival (near
the Clewiston Inn). Festivities include bed
races, a tennis tournament, a kids park for


children with rides and other attractions,
arts and crafts, and a number of perform-
ers at the main stage -- including Mr. Carroll,
Brantley Gilbert and local band, Down Time.
There will be a car show, as well as a mo-
torcycle show, information booths and the
Sweet Taste of Sugar contest.
Before the festival, citizens have the 2010
Miss Sugar Pageant to look forward to. The
pageant will be held Saturday, April 10 at
7:30 p.m. at the John Boy Auditorium in
Clewiston.
This year marks the loss of the festival's
main corporate sponsor, U.S. Sugar which
for many years was a big partner of the
event.
Ms. Kelley is preparing a local campaign
to get businesses to contribute toward the
cost of the stage area. The sponsorship
packages should land on the desks of busi-
ness owners and friends of the community
soon.


Ms. Kelley thanks her committee, an
"awesome" group, many of whom have
worked on the festival for years.
And she's also had the unfortunate plea-
sure of being part of a festival which weather
patterns disagreed with.
"Unfortunately, it is an outdoor event,"
she said, noting recent heavy rains, but hop-
ing that that won't be the case on April 24.
"We're at the mercy of Mother Naure," she
said.
For more information on the festival, or
