City: Volunteer
support vital for a
successful effort
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
When he was 10, little Sean
Scheffler decided, after he got
finished with drinking a Coca Cola,
that he would roll down the car
window and toss the bottle out.
That he successfully threw it
out without getting the car dirty in
the process wasn't the problem;
that his parents caught him litter-
ing was.

Man walking Fla. stops by 'Shots


Benny Collins hopes
to raise money for
his church
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
When Benny Collins started
his journey of walking across
the state of Florida, somebody
stopped him to ask, "Don't you
have anything better to do with
your time?"
The dedicated member of
Bushnell Assembly of God in
Bushnell, Fla. didn't get upset.
He prayed and kept walking.
Approximately 60 days later,
he walked right into Clewiston.
After attending a program at
Evangel Assembly of God, Mr.
Collins kept right on walking.
The truth is Mr. Collins is
walking to raise funds for the
construction of new facilities
at his church, and the trip has


found him meeting with count-
less individuals, urging people to
help his cause, and just seeing
everything that Florida has to
offer.
When he walked through
Clewiston last week, assisted by
Dale Clayton, another member
of the church, Mr. Collins ap-
proached the 600-mile mark.
"He started with dogs and
now he's going to deal with
alligators," joked Mr. Clayton.
According to him, Mr. Collins
isn't entirely alone when he
walks. Usually, another member
of the church volunteers to drive
alongside Mr. Collins in case he
needs anything.
After each day's walk, they es-
cort him back to suitable lodging
quarters and then start the next
day exactly where he left off. The
reprieves from the elements are
brief but welcome, especially

What follows is a sampling of some of
the discussions currently taking place.
Thanks for participating!

Lice in schools
There are a few of us parents who are
very concerned about the children in the
schools in Hendry County. There has been a
major problem with Lice in the schools. We
feel that the schools are not doing their part
to prevent such an epidemic. The schools
(Eastside and Central) say the teachers are
supposed to check their classes heads, but
where do you see that the teachers have
time? The teachers are there to educate
the kids. They don't have the time to check
heads and educate at the same time. With
only "one floating nurse" how do they ex-
pect to control this problem. The schools
need a nurse per school with aids or volun-
teer parents. We would be glad to volunteer
our time to help because at $25 a treatment
most parents can't afford this every other
week because the problem just won't go
away. Remind you that when one person in
your house gets it, you have to treat every-
one in your house plus the whole house. It
gets expensive after awhile. Central Elemen-
tary currently does not have a PTA meet-
ing but one will be arranged soon with a
notice posted in the Clewiston newspaper
for a date. Please for all parents who have
children and this is a concern for you please
stay tuned and attend the upcoming PTA
meetings. This problem is not going to go
away unless parents band together at the
PTA and away from PTA meetings to solve
this problem. Please this is not the teachers
responsibility. The school itself needs to be
responsible. If you have any questions or
concerns please send your inquires to P.O.

Project Graduation
The Clewiston High School senior class
will graduate approximately 226 young men
and women on June 4, 2010. As these stu-
dents turn their tassels to mark the end of
their high school experience, the parents
and teachers recognize the need for a safe
and chemical free environment. Therefore,
we are planning Project Graduation. As we
plan for Project Graduation, an all-night
party to celebrate this joyous occasion filled


with music, activities, prizes, and refresh-
ments we realize that once again we need
your financial support in order to make this
event a reality.
Last year this project graduation received
tremendous support from our community
and we are confident that this year we will
receive the same type of support. We are
seeking donations of cash, gift certificates
or prizes to make this 2010 Project Gradua-
tion event a huge success. These donations
may be delivered or mailed to Clewiston


High School, c/o Project Graduation at 1501
S. Francisco St. Or you can drop them off at
the Clewiston Sub Office at 475 E. Osceola
Ave. in Clewiston Fla., 33440 and just ask for
"Cindy" when you come.
The senior class parents want to thank
you in advance for your cooperation and we
know that with your help we can make this
Project Graduation a memorable one!
Sincerely,
Senior Parent

Saturday's Black Gold Jubilee in Belle


Glade to culminate with fireworks

Six-year-old Dean Congleton wasn't catching any fish when this picture was
taken at Saturday's Black Gold Jubilee Fishing Contest. Shown with Dean is
Lauryn Fliehs, 11; Olivia Sanford, 4; and Aidan Lakatos, 3. Over 150 children
came out for a fun day of fishing, eating and relaxing. The fishing tournament
was sponsored by the Belle Glade Rotary Club.


Lake communities invited to
attend the annual festival

By Brenda Bunting
Special to The Sun
Starting with a little pop and ending with
a lot of big bangs, the 32nd Annual Black
Gold Jubilee will be this Saturday, April 17 at
the Belle Glade Marina. The end-of-harvest
celebration will kick off with the sound of
the starting gun for the 5K Walk/Run on top
of the dike at 7:30 a.m. and end with many
big bangs of spectacular fireworks at dark.
"We're excited," said Cheryl Stein, Jubi-
lee chair. "The Jubilee is always so much
fun. We hope everyone comes out to the
marina and enjoys this great event. We also
want everyone to know that we've added
four new events this year."
New activities include an airboat show,
an antique car show, a "Dress Up Like Your
Favorite Vegetable" contest for the children
and a bake off contest for those with a sweet
tooth. Both the bake off, which is in addi-
tion to the corn cook-off, and the children's
costume contest involve money prizes for
lucky winners.
On a down note, word has circulated
quickly over the past two weeks that there
will be no parade this year. This is correct,
Mrs. Stein said. The committee struggled
with the decision not to have a parade but,
she said, it boiled down to lack of participa-
tion. The good news is that someone has of-
fered to chair the parade next year and work
to bring it back to its former glory by en-
couraging floats, bands and clubs to enter.
One thing that won't be missing this year
is the great variety of food at the Jubilee. Ven-
dor booth committee chair Melanie Grimes
says there is an impressive mixture of food,
including chicken, ribs, steak, Mexican food,


hamburgers and hot dogs, funnel cakes, ice
cream and other desserts, to name a few.
In addition to great food, there will again
be free rides and games for the children and
a photography tent showcasing pictures tak-
en around the lake. The Glades Art Group
will be displaying artwork of local artists


who study under Ann Tyler and the Torry Is-
land Game area will be for adults who want
to compete in board games or enter the
horseshoe contest. There will also be an ac-
tion-packed volleyball tournament to watch
and many arts and crafts booths where you
can purchase one-of-a-kind items.
Non-stop entertainment will be offered
under the local stage from 11:30 a.m. until
6 p.m. with local performers, including the
Celebration Singers, Donnie Martin, Gabby
Gold, Kendall Jackson, Kerry Beatty, the Ga-
tor Twirlers and many more. At 6 p.m. en-
tertainment moves to the Lakeside Amphi-
theater Stage. Ryan Walker will open with a
selection of songs, then new group this year,
Wild Blue, will take the stage at 6:30 p.m.
This trio is made up of Trey Grauer of vocals
and guitar, Randy Wood on bass, keyboards
and vocals and Bobby Mitchell on vocals
and drums. The band performs a solid mix
of rick, country and R&B. The have opened
for Vince Gill, Restless Heart, Sugarland,
Miranda Lambert and many others.
Finishing out the evening and singing
throughout the fireworks display are coun-
try music performers The Chase band. They
have been performing together for eight
years and many of the band members are
from the Clewiston area. They have won
the Kiss County Talent Search award, Flor-
ida County Music's Entertainer of the Year
award and Male Vocalist of the Year. This will
be their fourth year playing for the crowds at
the Jubilee.

U.S. Sugar purchase is


a publice pC
Provided by U.S. Sugar
CLEWISTON April 7, 2010 Oral argu-
ments heard today by the Florida Supreme
Court provided yet another opportunity for
the State to demonstrate the important pub-
lic purpose of this land acquisition Ever-
glades ecosystem restoration as affirmed
by the State District Court ruling.
"We were pleased to note that Florida
Supreme Court Justices stated several times
during the hearing that Everglades restora-
tion has been universally acknowledged as
a valid public purpose and that land acquisi-
tion was the first step," said Judy Sanchez,
director of corporate communications.
Proponents of the bond validation sum-
marized the environmental benefits and


irpose
proclaimed the land acquisition the best and
most cost-efficient way to move restoration
forward and provide the footprint for criti-
cally needed water storage and treatment
south of Lake Okeechobee.
"It is ironic that Florida Crystals' counsel
would bring up ancient Chinese foot-bind-
ing while they are doing everything they can
to cripple Everglades restoration," Sanchez
said.
"We are confident that the Florida Su-
preme Court carefully will adhere to the let-
ter of the law in their review of this case and
confirm its important public purpose and
approve bond validation, finally clearing the
way for meaningful restoration," Sanchez
said.


The Dugong, an exhibit


On Thursday, April 22, at 7 p.m., the
Clewiston Museum will unveil its latest ex-
hibit, the Dugong.
Mr. Mark Renz, who made the dugong
discovery, will give a short presentation in
the museum theater. Winners of the dug-


with their prizes.
Refreshments, including the famous
"Dugong Hunter" will be served.
I didn't add a Dugong picture because I

ong coloring contest will also be presented ong is, until Mark Renz does the unveiling.

People love


this helpful,


pretty, little


beetle

By Jessica Basham
Backyard Safari
People love to see ladybugs. They are
pretty and shiny with tiny, black dots on their
little, red bodies. Ladybugs are also orange,
yellow and pink. A ladybug, however, is not
a true bug but a member of the beetle fam-
ily.
Many cultures think ladybugs bring good
luck. Long ago, tiny aphids (plant-eating
bugs) attacked farmers' crops. The farmers
prayed to the Virgin Mary for help. Ladybugs,
they said, arrived and ate up the aphids, sav-
ing the crops. So farmers called them "Our
Lady's Beetles," and they became known as
"lady beetles." Now we call them ladybugs,
even though some of them are boys. There
are more than 400 species of ladybugs in the
United States and nearly 5,000 worldwide.
A ladybug's color helps protect it from
predators. Red, yellow, orange and black
are all colors that warn enemies they are
about to eat something that will make them
sick or tastes yucky.
A ladybug also protects itself by playing
dead. If grabbed or touched, the ladybug
will squirt out a small amount of blood from
its leg joints. This blood smells really bad.
Because the beetle looks and smells dead,
a hungry bird will skip this snack. When
the danger has passed, the ladybug may fly
away.
Its little body is really a hard shell that
covers its wings. When it wants to fly, it
lifts up the two sides of its shell and beats
its wings. It can beat its wings up to 85 times
per second.
Ladybugs and their larvae (young lady-
bugs) love to munch on aphids. Ladybug
larvae look like tiny alligators and are black
and orange or black and pink.
Ladybugs can eat up to 50 aphids a day.
Eating so many not only fills them up but
protects farm crops and gardens from aphids
and other bugs. Aphids suck the juice out of
leaves and cause them to curl up and die.
When you go searching for a ladybug,
look in places where aphids might hang
out, such as milkweed plants, rose bushes,
farm fields and orchards. Go outside and
look on the top and bottom of leaves. Are
some leaves curled up and dead-looking, or
covered with a blackish mold? Look closely;
you may see aphids, which means a ladybug
might be nearby.
Be part of the healthy Get Outdoors
Florida! movement by getting outdoors and
helping scientists find ladybugs. All you need
is a camera. In an effort to study and track
ladybugs, Cornell University's Lost Ladybug
Project wants to know where ladybugs live.
If you see a ladybug, take its picture, showing
its top. If you can, get it to crawl on a piece of
white paper, so its spots and colors show up
better in the photo. Then write down where
and when you saw the ladybug. Next, you or
your parents can visit www.lostladybug.org
to fill out more information and e-mail the
picture to the Lost Ladybug Project.

Central Elementary students, for
your excellent efforts on this year's
FCAT!


Mr. Collins is ahead of schedule, and ex-
pects to arrive in Key West, his final destina-
tion, by May 8.
There have been challenges along the
way, and as he entered into Hendry Coun-
ty in early April, Marie Collins, who stays
abreast of Mr. Collins journey, said he con-
fessed to her that he was tired.
"He was rested and had energy, but he
said when he was thinking about walking,
he must confess he didn't want to," she
said.
When it's all said and done, Benny will
have walked 817 miles in all.
While he walks, he prays. He meets peo-
ple on the road, in restaurants, or sometimes
in the places he stays to sleep, and he offers
each of them a prayer, whether they're in-
jured, or just hurting, or need a comforting
word.
"Let's pray for all of our leaders from the
governor to the one who sits on that small
town council seat, for our churches of all
denominations," he urges. "For our teach-
ers, our young people and let's pray for our
family."
His walk through the Glades will likely
leave a lasting impact on him.
"Benny walked out of South Bay," Ms.
Collins wrote on April 14, Day 64 of the trip.
"He didn't think he was going to have much
of a shoulder to walk on. He had a good
breeze off the canal that runs parallel with
Hwy. 27. There were sugar cane fields or sod
farms on both sides of the highway as far as
you could see."

low Mr. Collins' journey, visit www.ttns.org.

Clewiston High School Softball


The Clewiston High School varsity girls softball team will compete in a regional
tournament game for the first time ever -- during the week of April 19 -- if it ad-
vances to the district championship game. The Lady Tigers, who have won 11
of their first 15 games, compete in Class 3A in District 13.

Softball Team Eyeing First
Tournament Bid
CLEWISTON, Fla. Clewiston High
School varsity softball coach Melissa White-
head can't help but notice that the talent
level of her players rises each season.
"We didn't have city leagues when I
went to Clewiston High School and played
softball," Whitehead said. "In fact, I never
picked up a softball until the ninth grade.
Now when kids get to the high school level,
many of them have already played in city
leagues.
"That means that now I am getting more
and more girls who can start as freshmen.
This year I have one of the most talented
teams I've ever had. We're both good and
young, and our success has come because
of the softball they've played in the fall and
in travel leagues."
The Lady Tigers won 11 of their first 15
games the four losses were by a total of
only seven runs competing in Class 3A in
District 13. Whitehead says the team is solid
defensively, is hitting well and has good but
not overpowering pitching.
If Clewiston advances to the district
championship game win or lose it will
compete in a regional game for the first time
ever, during the week of April 19.
The varsity roster includes utility players
Kristina Autrey and Brittney Bacallao, left
fielder Sydney Duckstein, shortstop Sarah
Howell, catcher Whitney Irey, right fielder
Shelby Mitchell, third baseman Samantha
Ortiz, first baseman/pitcher Mandi Perry, sec-
ond baseman Laura Romero, centerfielder
Deandra Trottie, pitcher/first baseman Katie
Whidden and utility player Jessica Schultz.

Clewiston High School pushes healthier food choices


By Taylor Howell
As our country continues to face the chal-
lenges of childhood obesity, Clewiston High
School has began to tackle this issue by im-
plementing changes into the food choices
offered to its students.
Over the past three decades, childhood
obesity rates in America have tripled, and
today, nearly one in three children in Amer-
ica are overweight or obese. A recent study
shows that the United States spends ap-
proximately $150 billion every year treating
obesity-related illnesses, many of which are
preventable. This epidemic also impacts the
nation's security, as obesity is now one of
the most common disqualifiers for military
service.
The school environment is one of the
several settings that can influence a child's
eating habits. By ensuring that only nutri-
tional food options are available, schools
can promote healthy eating behavior and
help improve their nutritious intake.
Over the past year, Clewiston High
School has promoted healthier food choic-
es throughout its campus. The high school
has worked with the Alliance for a Healthier
Generation to establish suitable changes,
such as cutting out certain foods and replac-
ing them with healthier substitutes, said An-
thony Busin, assistant principal of Clewiston
High School.
The Alliance for a Healthier Generation
joined forces with the Clinton Foundation
in 2005 and have worked hard to create a
healthier generation. They hope to reduce


the nationwide prevalence of childhood
obesity by 2015, and to empower kids to
make healthy lifestyle choices.
Busin said childhood obesity is becoming
an enormous problem. Fastfood is becom-
ing a huge contributor to this worldwide
epidemic. Busin said he would like to see
more physical activity implemented into a
student's daily school schedule.
A few years ago, the high school promot-
ed a new rule across the campus candy and
other sweet treats were no longer allowed
to be sold as fundraiser items. This was one
of several changes made toward creating a
healthier environment.

tain foods and replacing them with healthier

ed a new rule across the campus candy and
other sweet treats were no longer allowed


to be sold as fundraiser items. This was one
of several changes made toward creating a
healthier environment.
All soda machines were removed from
campus, while baked chips and other low-
calorie snacks now stock the vending ma-
chines, Busin said.
"Juices and smaller canned refreshments
with lower calories are now offered for stu-
dents to purchase in place of soda."
Healthier food is being prepared by the
cafeteria staff and smaller portions are given
to the students who choose to eat the school
lunch provided. Busin said French fries are
the biggest hit in the cafeteria. To avoid the
high amount of calories in deep-fried French
fries, the cafeteria staff now bakes the French
fries.
"You're saving a couple hundred calories
while still achieving the same great taste,"
Busin said.
Darrell Harris, food service director for
Hendry County School District, oversees all
food purchases and choices offered at all 12
schools of Hendry County. He is responsible
for working with state officials and making
sure all foods provided meet federal and
state guidelines. It is the policy of Hendry
County School District to keep the price of
lunch as low as possible, while still offering
a nutritional lunch for the students.
"Trying to stay away from fat, greasy
food has been the biggest challenge in the
school system," Harris said. "It's hard to cre-
ate nutritional substitutes for things such as
a pizza, when you're working with a limited


budget."
Although the fattening foods are still
available, more fruit and vegetables are also
offered to students during the lunch hours.
"We now offer two daily choices of fruit
to our students," Harris said.
The Food Service Department of Hendry
County has been working closely with the
Alliance for a Healthier Generation. Togeth-
er, they have created many future projects
towards achieving a healthier environment
in the school system. They plan to stay away
from grease as much as possible, and in-
stead of deep-frying certain food items, they
will bake them. They will also be changing
the cooking oil that is currently being used
to a lower-calorie substitute.
Stella Roy, a nutritionist at Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center, agrees that childhood
obesity has become a very serious problem
in Hendry County. Roy sees only a minimal
amount of pediatric patients each year at
Hendry Regional Medical Center. However,
a very large percentage of her adult patients
are obese, with medical problems associ-
ated with obesity, such as diabetes, cardio-
vascular disease and hypertension.
March is National Nutrition Month, and
Roy is busy promoting easy tips on improv-
ing health and nutrition to her patients from
the American Dietetic Association "National
Nutrition Month" campaign.
"We are focusing nationally on getting the
word out about the importance of healthy
eating for people of all ages."

A butterfly named Thomas
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The good news is that Christ is alive. The
bad news is how little impact that event is
having in the world today. Let us change
that!
For years, I have I raised butterflies from
caterpillars for kids to release on Easter Sun-
day morning.
This year, every caterpillar but one went
into chrysalis and came out a butterfly.
Sometimes caterpillars die for no ap-
parent reason and don't reach the promise
of their created destiny. So do we and our
loved ones.
Ever the optimist, I left the one alone. The
other caterpillars grew, spun their cocoons,
and eventually emerged as butterflies to cel-
ebrate the day of resurrection.
The one showed only a little sign of grow-
ing. I decided to name him Thomas in honor
of the Apostle Thomas, Patron Saint of Dif-
ferent Timing.
Thomas the butterfly had the same birth-
ing conditions as his brothers and sisters. He
had the same food and same growing envi-
ronment.
Yet his timing was off.
Others grew and matured into the butter-
flies they were meant to be. Thomas' tim-
ing was different from the norm. The others
experienced the joy of the resurrection on
Easter.
Thomas finally went into chrysalis and
will probably be experiencing his resurrec-
tion about the time this article goes into
print.
This gives me hope in my life. Like Thom-
as the butterfly, my timing doesn't always
correspond with everybody else's. But also
like Thomas the butterfly, the promise of the
resurrection experience is still there for me
even in the midst of this!
Different timing resulted in the Apostle
Thomas missing a resurrection appear-
ance by Jesus, and his being forever labeled
"Doubting Thomas," a name synonymous
with skepticism.
I think Thomas got a bad rap. All of us
doubt at one time or another. Some of us
doubt every week.
There are very few people whose lives
are not improved when they move from a
life of doubt to a life of faith.


It has been pointed out that an event, no
matter how earth-shaking, doesn't have the
power to change people's lives.
In order for an event to affect a person,
it must become an experience. Jesus' resur-
rection from the dead was an event, but it
wasn't real to the disciples until they person-
ally experienced the resurrected Christ in
their lives.
Thomas knew of the event of Jesus' res-
urrection, but it wasn't until he experienced
the risen Christ that his life changed. In a like
manner, some of us know of the event of
Christ's resurrection, but we lack a recent
life-changing experience or encounter with
Jesus.
The story of Easter morning will always
be at the heart of the Christian faith because
it proclaims that God has conquered death
through the resurrection of Jesus Christ.
Note, however, that the mission of the
apostles begins not with knowledge of an
empty tomb, but with a personal encounter
with the risen Christ. The same is true for
us.

After Easter: What's
important is about living
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A member of a Church I served told me
one day "I want a faith to die by." I recalled
the words of another man who had devoted
himself to ministry and teaching the faith he
loved.
He told his students "I want a faith to live
by, dying will take care of itself." I thought
about his words and the words of the Lord,
when a follower sought to be a disciple but
wanted to bury his father first (Matthew
8:21ff).
The message was simple; "Let the dead
bury the dead!" It's not about dying, it's
about living. One of the tragedies I saw was
during an internship.
A patient in a state hospital spent the ma-
jority of her adult life there. Her illness was
no fault of her own; she just wasn't able to
function with others.
The family had ignored her; there were
no records of visits or signs of contacts. She
was left to make the best of it in a strained
and strange world. One day, she died. Sud-


denly family came "out of the woodwork"
and no expense was too great.
A bronze casket, a very expensive dress,
limousines, and whatever else could be
added.
I would have preferred them to have sent
the limousines once and awhile to have
given her a ride around town, and a few
newer less, expensive dresses to have some-
thing special now and again amidst the drab
clothing that the hospital provided.
Maybe she could have had someone
bring in food for a birthday party or for holi-
day celebrations; the bronze casket could
have provided many parties when she could
have celebrated with her new-found friends
in a difficult environment.
My teacher was right: it's about living
and what we do here, dying will take care
of itself. Easter is about living, Good Friday
is about dying, but it's not the end of the
story.
The real story is about overcoming
death; even death will not be the end. It will
be about life, like the Energizer Bunny, that
keeps going and going and going. It is curi-
ous in a way that many of the great people
mentioned in the Bible finish their lives in
anonymity.
We don't know what happened to them;
the apostles or Paul or so many of the Lord's
followers. They are only known through leg-
ends and apocryphal tales about the ends of
their lives after their ministries or their en-
counters to do what they were called to do.
In many ways, it's almost anticlimactic
but that's the way it is. The message I take
from it all is that it is important to do what
we're called to do while we're here; and the
rest will take care of itself.
I figure that I'm here because my work is
not yet finished; and that's why you are here
too. We've got something to do in God's
scheme of things; and the rest will take care
of itself.
Amen!

over the line. The decision has been made.
I'm a disciple of His.
I won't look back, let up, slow down,
back away or be still! My past is redeemed,
my present makes sense, my future is se-
cure.
I'm finished and done with low living,
sight walking, small planning, smooth knees,
colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly
talking, cheap giving and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosper-
ity, position, promotions, plaudits or popu-
larity. I don't have to be right, first, tops, rec-
ognized, praised, regarded or rewarded.
I now live by faith, lean on His presence,
walk by patience, am uplifted by prayer and
labor by power.
My face is set, my gait is fast, my goal is
Heaven, my road is narrow, my way rough,
my companions few, my Guide reliable, my
mission clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, de-
toured, lured away, turned back, deluded or
delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice,
hesitate in the presence of the adversary,
negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder
at the pool of popularity, or meander in the
maze of mediocrity.
I won't give up, shut up, let up, until I
have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid
up, preached up for the cause of Christ.
I am a Disciple of Jesus. I must go un-
til He comes, give until I drop, preach until
all know, and work until He stops me -- and
when He comes for his own, He will have
no problem recognizing me my banner
will be clear!

Clean

Continued From Page 1

The future public works director, whose
entire livelihood would rely decades later
on the simple goal of keeping his city clean,
was made to pick up not only his bottle,
but those of other people down that small
stretch of street. His parents had stopped the
car and taught him that littering is a crime
and drove the point home by having him
publicly, and quite embarrassingly, clean up
after himself.
The adult Sean Scheffler is no worse for
the wear, and in fact, swears by the punish-
ment.
He will have the opportunity to instill
his own brand of instruction this Saturday,
when he and a host of volunteers take to the
streets of Clewiston during the annual spring
cleaning event.
"The first couple of times we were very
successful. We had 250 people the last one
and are hoping for 250 to 300 people again,"
said Mr. Scheffler, who is happy that the
event is being held again after being can-
celled last year due to economical reasons.
Volunteers will report to the spot, under
the Banyan tree behind the Clewiston Li-
brary, at 8 a.m. and will enjoy a continen-


tal breakfast and then head out to clean the
city's main thoroughfare, Sugarland Hwy.
Much of the focus of the clean up event
is centered on the city's main corridor, es-
pecially one week before the Sugar Festival
is expected to draw thousands to the streets
of Clewiston. If there are enough volunteers
and time, however, Mr. Scheffler would like
to target other areas of the city, including
some of the more blighted sections.
"We need to clean up Clewiston and
showcase her at her finest before the out-of-
town visitors come," he said.
Mr. Scheffler compares it to preparing for
a job interview. You need a haircut, and to
enter the room with a nice set of clothes,
your best try at respectable enunciation and
a willingness to prove that you are the right
person for the job.
Cleaning the streets of this city is hardly
different. If Clewiston is to attract new busi-
nesses, or people moving in to make this
their home, then residents must help it put
its best foot forward.
He has another analogy:
"You make a decision to either go into a
business establishment or not based on your
first impression. If you go up to a restaurant
and the roof is caving in, the door hanging
off its hinges, it stinks and is dirty, it doesn't
matter if 14 of your closest friends say the


food is awesome, you will say, 'they must be
crazy.' If I eat that, I'll die."
When they're done, volunteers will be
treated to a lunch between 11 and 12 and
prizes donated by local businesses will be
raffled off in appreciation of the work of the
volunteers.
While the event is done only once a year,
Mr. Scheffler hopes that residents will carry
over their drive to clean the entire year. Resi-
dents should live up to their city's slogan, he
believes.
"How can you be sweet and not clean?"
he said.
Mayor Mali Chamness, who will be par-
ticipating on Saturday, agrees.
"I think that we should all do more to
keep Clewiston clean," the mayor said. "It's
only three or four hours. It really doesn't take
that long when you get people to help out."
If anything, he hopes that parents will
talk to their kids about keeping their city,
their streets and their homes clean.
"Education starts at home. If little Johnny
sees daddy drinking Coca Cola and slip it
out the window and it just falls on the street,
then little Johnny's gonna do that."
But little Sean won't.

details about the incident.
What is known is that, on Sunday, April 4,
deputies conducting patrol in the Twin Lakes
area heard "several gunshots being fired in
the area," according to Lt. Susan Harrelle,
Hendry County Sheriff's Office spokesper-
son.
Deputies quickly scanned the area in
search of the possible shooter. As it was, the
gunshots lead nowhere, with deputies un-
able to locate suspect, victim or witness.
The immediate wait after the gunshots
was fruitless, as well.
