Local cop is arrested


Herrera faces felony child
abuse charges

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
A Clewis-
ton Police
Officer was
arrested last
week in con-
nectionwitha
year-old case
that resulted
in felony child
abuse charg-
es for the po-
liceman. John Herrera.
He was
held in the
Hendry Coun-
ty Jail on $35,000 bond.
With the case still moving through
the court system, and the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement -- which took
the lead on the case -- releasing very few


details, not much is known about the cir-
cumstances behind the officer's arrest.
Judge Christine Greider signed a war-
rant for the arrest of John Herrera, 30, of
Clewiston on April 21. He was arrested
later that day.
The warrant cites an incident that
happened on March 25, 2009, accusing
Herrera of committing "an aggravated
battery upon a child ... and in committing
the battery did intentionally or knowingly
cause great bodily harm, permanent dis-
ability, or permanent disfigurement to
said child."
Herrera is a longtime employee of
the city of Clewiston, having started his
employment at the city's water depart-
ment in 2003. He was hired at the police
department as a trainee in late 2006, and
became a full-time officer in 2007.
According to Chief Don Gutshall, Her-
rera has no previous disciplinary action
on file with the police department.
The chief himself reported having no

New skeleton display fea-
tured at museum, Danny
Dugong traced back
millions of years

By Amy McKown
Special to The Clewiston News
The new-
est addition
to the Clewis-
ton Museum
was unveiled
last Thurs-
day. Danny e
Dugong, as
he has been
named by lo-
cal museum
supporters The Dugong.
made his first
appearance
in front of 120
plus museum visitors.
The skeleton of the dugong was


i


found by Mark Renz about 15 years ago
on Cargill property in Pope County. The
estimated age of the remains is 3 million
years old. The exhibit is on permanent
loan from the Florida Museum of Natural
History.
The dugong is in the sirenian family of
animals which includes the manatee. The
artistic portrayal of the animal displayed
above the case gives much resemblance
to the modern manatee with exception
to the tail shape.
Renz, who was raised in Hendry
County, has been a vital part of bringing
many of the fossils and exhibits in the
Clewiston Museum. The museum has
been showing these fossils for a little
over a year according to museum di-

Keen teaches

Garden Club
Alicia Keen, whose flower shop Ali-
cia Keen & Co. is located at 208 E.
Sugarland Highway, taught Green
Thumb Garden Club members
the art of flower arranging at their
March 30th meeting. Growing up in
a flower shop in Belle Glade where
her mother owned and operated
The Rose Petal for many years, Ali-
cia had the opportunity to learn ar-
ranging skills from a master crafts-
man at an early age. Alicia endeared
herself to all as she shared her life,
teaching much about the flower
business and giving tips on cutting
and preserving flowers while skill-
fully making several beautiful Eas-
ter arrangements.

U.S. Sugar posts new harvesting records


Company reports successful
sugarcane harvesting and
processing season

Clewiston, FL U.S. Sugar Corporation
completed its annual sugarcane harvest op-
erations late Wednesday and its Clewiston
Sugar Factory finished grinding the last rail-
cars of sugarcane on Thursday.
"Although this crop was hampered by
several hard-freeze events during one of the
coldest winters on record and unusually wet
conditions, U.S. Sugar still produced 500,000
tons more sugarcane than last year, an 18
percent increase in tons per acre that low-
ered the Company's cost of production,"
said Judy Sanchez, director of corporate
communications.
"Almost all of our crop experienced wide-
spread freeze damage, yet U.S. Sugar admin-
istration's total cane production was 11 per-
cent higher than 2009 and 13 percent higher
than its 5-year average," Sanchez said.
"With a proprietary, automated harvest-
ing schedule and its own dedicated railroad


transportation system, U.S. Sugar was able
to quickly and continually adjust its harvest
and delivery schedule to harvest and process
the most severely freeze-damaged cane and
its independent grower cane at its factory to
minimize losses," said Sanchez.
Sanchez also said that with U.S. Sugar's
state-of-the-art sugar manufacturing facility
running on all cylinders in just its third year
and its refinery shattering production re-
cords, the Company processed an estimat-
ed 6.15 million tons of cane and produced
696,000 tons of sugar. The Clewiston Refin-
ery, which operates year-round to meet cus-
tomer demand, will surpass 14 million cwt.
of refined sugar products by October 31-
another record-breaking production year.
"Our refinery's record production has
coincided with increased sugar demand and
higher sugar prices, enabling the Company
to retire $200 million in debt utilized to build
the highly automated sugar facilities ahead
of schedule," Sanchez said.
Sanchez said that while its competitors
have been wasting their money criticizing
the Company's operations, U.S. Sugar had
been investing its money in creating one of


the world's most efficient sugar manufactur-
ing operations-necessary to compete in an
increasingly global economy.
"These investments have enabled us to
not only grow and process our own sugar
more efficiently but also to decrease the im-
pact of foreign sugar imports by profitably
importing and refining foreign sugar at our
Clewiston factory. In fact, U.S. Sugar's direc-
tors and owners as well as its independent
growers have expressed tremendous pride
and satisfaction with the Company's recent
accomplishments in spite of the extremely
challenging economic conditions and con-
tinued poor weather," Sanchez said.
"U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art sugar pro-
cessing operation has worked miracles. This
winter's prolonged freeze events could have
completely devastated smaller growers like
me. U.S. Sugar not only revised their har-
vest and production schedules to prioritize
independent Western cane growers' freeze-
damaged crops, but also shared higher re-
fined sugar margins with its growers," said
Donnie Lundy, one of the Company's 36 in-
dependent sugarcane growers.


HRMC ushers in advancements with imaging technology


By Glenda Wilson
Hendry Regional Medical Center's imag-
ing/radiology department can now operate
with a near film-less process thanks to the
recent purchase of a PACS computer sys-
tem. PACS (Picture Archive Communica-
tion System) is a network of computers that
store, share, and display digital x-rays.
After the patient's x-ray/imaging proce-
dure is performed, the images are immedi-
ately available for viewing, much like a digi-
tal camera, via the secure PACS computer
network.
A radiologist reviews the images on a
computer screen and dictates a report for
the patient's healthcare provider.
PACS also eliminates the need to manu-
ally file, retrieve, or transport film jackets. It
has the ability to deliver timely and efficient
access to images, interpretations, and other
related data. PACS breaks down the physical
and time barriers associated with traditional
film-based image retrieval, distribution, and
display.

Ed Chiarelli, the Director of Imaging Ser-
vices at Hendry Regional explains, "A patient
can show up at our facility with a fractured
vertebrae the physicians here might be un-
sure whether they want to put the patient
in a helicopter and fly him to the coast for
neurosurgery.
Now they can call the facility and ask the
doctors there to take a look at the patient's
images, since they are instantly available via
PACS. (The facility would need access and
authorization to access the PAC system.)
Our hospital physicians can even call a spe-
cialist at home, and this doctor can log in
from a home system, using the web viewer,
to look at the images and help make a judg-

ronment, this would be impossible."

ues to strive for quality through modern,

Civics Education Act passes both Fla. chambers


Measure will require that
civics education be part of
curriculum for all grades
Both chambers of the Florida legislature
passed a measure to include civics education
for all grade levels as part of the language
arts curriculum. House Bill (HB) 105, also
known as the "Justice Sandra Day O'Connor
Civics Education Act," now moves to the
Governor's desk for his signature.
Representative Matt Hudson, sponsor of
the bill, issued the following statement: The
future of our state and our republic depend
on our citizens understanding of the civics
process. I believe the implementation of the
Justice Sandra Day O'Connor Civics Educa-
tion Act will help strengthen and preserve
our state and union," stated Representative
Matt Hudson (R-Naples), sponsor of the


bill.
House Bill 105 creates the "Justice San-
dra Day O'Connor Civics Education Act" and
adds the following requirements for civics
education:
For all grade levels beginning with the
2011-2012 school year, the HB 105 requires
the reading portion of the language arts cur-
riculum within the Sunshine State Standards
to include civics education content.
For students entering grade 6 beginning
with the 2012-2013 school year, the bill re-
quires the successful completion of a one-
semester civics education course in order
to be promoted from a school composed of
grades 6, 7, and 8.
The one-semester civics education
course is to be designated as one of the
three middle school social studies courses
currently required for promotion.
The bill now awaits the Governor's signa-
ture into law.

USDA



extends



emergency



assistance

Clewiston, FI Tim Manning, Executive
Director of USDA's Farm Service Agency in
Florida announced today that USDA will ac-
cept late-filed applications for the Emergen-
cy Assistance for Livestock, Honeybees and
Farm-Raised Fish Program (ELAP) for losses
that took place in calendar years 2008 and
2009.
ELAP sign-up ended on Dec.10, 2009, for
2008 losses and on Feb. 1, 2010, for 2009
losses. However, because of changes to
program eligibility provisions, FSA is now
accepting late-filed applications for 2008
and 2009 livestock, honeybees, and/or farm-
raised fish losses through May 5, 2010.
"ELAP provides emergency assistance to
eligible producers of livestock, honeybees
and farm-raised fish that have losses due
to disease, adverse weather or other condi-
tions, including losses due to blizzards and
wildfires," said Manning.
According to Manning ELAP assistance
is for losses not covered under other Sup-
plemental Agricultural Disaster Assistance
programs established by the 2008 Farm Bill,
specifically the Livestock Forage Disaster
Program, the Livestock Indemnity Program
and the Supplemental Revenue Assistance
Payments Program. ELAP is being imple-
mented to fill in the gap and provide assis-
tance under other conditions determined to
be appropriate.
ELAP eligibility provisions have been
amended for both honeybee and farm-raised
fish producers. The modifications include al-
lowing honeybee and farm-raised fish pro-
ducers who did not replace their honeybees
or fish that were lost due to a natural disaster
to be eligible for ELAP payments based on
the fair market value of the honeybees or
fish that were lost.
In addition, the requirements to docu-
ment losses for honeybee producers who
suffered losses due to Colony Collapse Dis-
order (CCD) were modified to allow docu-
mentation by an independent third party for
losses in 2010 through Sept. 31, 2011. Pro-
ducers can self certify losses due to CCD for
2008 and 2009.
For more information or to apply for ELAP
and other USDA Farm Service Agency disas-
ter assistance programs, please visit your
FSA county office or www.fsa.usda.gov.

Audubon protects

Audubon eagle specialists from its Center
of Birds of Prey removed two bald eaglets 4 t
from a nest adjacent to Herbert Hoover Dike I.w.
on Thursday and relocated them to the rap- r
tor center until foster nests can be found.
"Because of their location, these vulner- o i
able eaglets were delaying construction .
projects needed to secure the safety of the
dike," said Dr. Paul Gray, Audubon's Lake
Okeechobee expert. "The dike repairs are 1 '
necessary to protect lakeside communities,
and the eaglets will be well cared for by 4
Audubon." Note that Herbert Hoover Dike is
70 years old and this is the first major repair
it has undergone.
Professional climber James Lott, of
Lawns-a-Lott, worked with Audubon Center
for Birds of Prey staff and Audubon Eagle-
Watch volunteer Jim White to remove the
eaglets from the nest. Lott scaled the Austra-
lian Pine, which swayed over water, reached
the nest, and safely removed the eaglets. All
precautions were taken and the safety of the
tree climber, the adult eagles and eaglets
was assured. Audubon worked with the US
Army Corps of Engineers and the US Fish
and Wildlife Service, which granted all per-
mits necessary to rescue the birds. Lynda While and Jim W

Warm weather means active alligators


The onset of warm weather in the
spring is when Florida's native crocodil-
ians start getting active, and the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) is urging Floridians and visi-
tors to be cautious when having fun in
and around water.
Florida is home to two native croco-
dilians the American alligator, which is
found in all 67 counties, and the Ameri-
can crocodile, which may be found in
coastal areas of the Keys, Southeast and
Southwest Florida. Both species have
shared Florida's waters with people for
centuries.
The FWC recommends keeping pets
away from the water. There are other pre-
cautionary measures people should take
to reduce potential conflicts with alliga-
tors and crocodiles, and they are available
in the "Living with Alligators" brochure
at MyFWC.com/Alligator and the "Living
with Crocodiles" brochure at MyFWC.
com/Crocodile.
The FWC advises, if you have concerns
with an alligator or crocodile that poses a
threat to you, your pets or property, call
the FWC's toll-free Nuisance Alligator
Hotline at 866-FWC-GATOR (392-4286).
Alligators and crocodiles are an im-
portant part of Florida's heritage and play
a valuable role in the ecosystems where
they live. For more information on alliga-
tors and crocodiles, visit MyFWC.com/Al-
ligator.

A shining sun isn't the only thing that shows up with warm weather, the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission warns Florida residents to be watch-
ful for alligators and crocodiles too.

Westside Honor Roll
Westside Elementary would like to an-
nounce that fifth grade student John Moran
has made the A/B Honor Roll for the 2010
third nine weeks! Congratulations to this
student.


Central Elementary School Kindergart-
ners have been learning about commu-
nity helpers for the past two weeks. They
have been learning the different duties of
community helpers such as police officers,
firemen, librarians, and other community
officials. The teachers took advantage of
all that Clewiston has to offer by taking a
field trip to the Youth Center and Public
library. They also correlated with the fire
department and police department to have
a "community helper day" right in the mid-
dle of the city.
The kindergartners walked from Cen-
tral, passing the police department and City
Hall on the way. Upon arrival the students


went around to the different stations set up
around the youth center. Each class had
a chance to see the fire truck, police car,
and ambulance. They also talked with the
fireman, police officer, and paramedic. The
students visited the Youth Center and had
their fingerprints made with the Clewiston
Explorers.
They also visited the Library where they
had a volunteer read them stories and color
pictures. This was a wonderful chance for
the students to appreciate their community
helpers, and our community helpers edu-
cate the students on their jobs!! We hope
that this will start a wonderful tradition
with the City of Clewiston and the schools!

Brown Sugar Festival announces:


2010 Parade Marshall, Pioneer

Family and Business of the Year

Jerome L. Kingeade

Jerome Kingcade is one of fourteen children born to Thomas and Rosa Lee King-
cade. A native of southern Florida, he was born in Belle Glade General Hospital and
grew up in Harlem, an experience that he appreciates and cherishes.
Jerome's father was one of only two farmers in the community and during harvest
season a great number of their friends and neighbors-the Scotts, the Williamses, the
Brumfields, the Cantys, the Tates, the Henrys, the Freemans, the Joneses, the Battles, the
Tolberts, among others would help his father harvest his crops.
His education began at an early age at Mrs. Crenshaw's kindergarten on Tennessee
Street. He still recalls the lessons of Miss Thomas and Mrs. Black and Mr. Humphrey,
even though in those high school years at Harlem Academy, ways to shoot hooky was
studied more than English, science or social studies.
He graduated from Harlem Academy May 31, 1965. In December of 1971, Jerome
married his high school sweetheart, Carolyn Pope. Carolyn, he says, has been and still
is his inspiration and pillar of strength through the years. They have two sons and two
daughters and nine grandchildren.
Jerome and Carolyn has made St. Louis, Missouri their home and we thank him for
being 2010 Brown Sugar Festival Parade Marshall.

Momma's Lessons and More
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In honor of mothers everywhere, of future moth-
ers and mothers past, and of those special mothers
with have no children of their own but are mothers
to children anyway, I wanted share some important
things my mother taught me.
Momma taught me TO APPRECIATE A JOB
WELL DONE: "If you're going to kill each other, do it
outside. I just finished cleaning." She taught me RE-
LIGION: "You better pray that will come out of the
carpet.
And Momma introduced me to LOGIC: "Because
I said so, that's why." More LOGIC. 'If you fall out of
that swing and break your neck, you're not going to
the store with me." And more Logic still: "When that
lawn mower cuts off your toes, don't come running
to me."
Momma taught me STAMINA: 'You'll sit there
until all that spinach is gone." And CONTORTION-
ISM. "Will you look at that dirt on the back of your
neck?"
From Momma, I learned ANTICIPATION. "Just
wait until your father gets home." Not to mention
JUSTICE: "One day you'll have kids, and I hope they
turn out just like you!"
And of course, Momma always drilled into me,
"Make sure you wear clean underwear, in case
you're in an accident."
Speaking of accidents, let me share with you
some statistics I came across and the "Momma's
Logic" I applied to it.
Avoid riding in automobiles because they are re-
sponsible for 20 percent of all fatal accidents. Do not
stay home because 17 percent of all accidents occur
in the home. Avoid walking on streets or sidewalks
because 14 percent of all accidents occur to pedes-
trians. Avoid traveling by air, rail, or water because
16 percent of all accidents involve these forms of
transportation. Of the remaining 33 percent, 32 per-
cent of all deaths occur in hospitals. Above all, avoid
hospitals.
You will be pleased to learn that only .001 percent
of all deaths occur in worship services in church;
these are usually related to previous physical disor-
ders. Therefore, logic tells us that the safest place for
you to be at any given point in time is at church!
Bible study is safe too. The percentage of deaths
during Bible study is even less. So, for your safety's
sake, attend church and read your Bible-it could
save your life!
Mothers, we thank God for you, for all that you
do, for the kindness you show, for the love you give,
and for the example you are. We love you with all
our hearts! May God bless you on your special day
and always!


When a business is not a

business: Answers for sales-

people
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Every now and then I get a phone call from
someone who wants to speak to the "head of your
,,. ,,, ii ,,,"Usually it is from a salesperson, to tell
us about some program or sell insurance or a prod-
uct for the offices.
They usually have limited understandings about
"Church" or -.- ,, ii ,,, They're doing their job,
I suppose, but I smile when I think how to answer
about referring the call to "the head of your organi-
zation."
The ,*r. ,,,i .1i,,,'" was established 2,000 years
ago in an upper room, as recorded in the Book of
Acts (Chapter 2) and the "head" has been involved in
all of the branches that have arisen ever since.
He left His work to those who would follow and
the successors to those in the upper room on that
day. Those who followed in turn called others and


gave them specific functions and roles; as outlined
in the "book of instructions" we commonly call the
"New Testament."
When asked about rulers, Jesus pointed out that
those "who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles
lord it over them, and their high officials exercise au-
thority over them.
Not so among you. Instead, whoever wants to
become great among you must be your servant and
whoever wants to be first must be slave of all (Mark
10:42-44)." If there is any claim to being the head,
perhaps it is best sought from those who serve the
most, or who are the most at the beck and-call of
others.
To give a short answer, I can say that we have
regional offices in Miami, or our national offices are
in New York;" you might wish to try there" but that
won't do. The fact of the matter is that the clear de-
lineation of our leader goes back to the Founder; and
He came as a servant.
To cut to the chase, I usually say "This is a
Church" and explain a bit about decision-making
here. The reply is usually "Have a nice day" and we
each go on our separate ways. My "business" is un-
like other "businesses" and my work is unlike other
kinds of work.
I am blessed with those around who take their
rightful positions in their roles of leadership, direct
tion, being servants and helping others, supporting,
volunteering, maintaining, praying because some-
how, somewhere they heard the message from the
first Servant of all. In a world full of people worried
about who is the head of an -. i ii, .... who ex-

ei.;., ,,ld,, ,, who makes the rules, who can and
cannot do what; it is totally refreshing to step back
daily and weekly to say "It's different around here"
- "We all have a part, we all share, we all serve in
one way or another" My place is to officiate, perhaps
as an orchestra conductor brings together a great
symphony, and to share in the making of something
great.
For me, that surpasses being the "head" or "hav
ing authority." The final retirement plan, too, is out
of this world!


Planned Parenthood official

quits!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Watching an unborn baby die during an ultra-
sound-guided abortion changed the heart and life
of Abby Johnson, the former director of Planned
Parenthood in Bryan, Texas. Johnson, 29, resigned
from her job October 6 and has begun speaking out
against abortion and Planned Parenthood's philoso-
phy. "What I saw on the screen was a 13 week baby
fighting for its life, Johnson said on Fox New's The
O'Rielly Factor. "And I had flashes in my head of my
own daughter. I remembered having an ultra-sound
at 12 weeks with my own daughter. And I just was
thinking, 'What am I doing?' I was thinking, 'I've
never seen this before.'"
Johnson said that this was the first time she actu-
ally saw a child killed during an abortion. "Planned


Parenthood really tries to instill in their employees
and the women that are coming in for abortions that
this is just a mass of cells," she explained on The
O'Reilly Factor. "You know, don't say 'baby' in the
clinic. Don't say 'baby' to the women coming in for
an abortion. And so you begin to believe that. You
begin to believe that it's not a life."
Planned Parenthood filed a request for an injunc-
tion against Johnson, asking the court to forbid her
from speaking about the,- -._ i. i.... A temporary
order was granted, but a judge lifted the injunction
November 11 and refused to issue a permanent one,
according to the Associated Press.
The pro-abortion group contends that Johnson
is a disgruntled ex-employee whose performance
was being questioned when she quit, Salon.com re
ported. But Johnson told Bill O'Reilly that "their busi
ness model has changed. And that, you know, this
prevention that they preach about maybe is not re-
ally what Planned Parenthood is all about. And that,
with the downward economy, they are really trying
to increase their abortion number, because that is
the most lucrative part of their business."
Johnson said she will continue to speak about
her recent conversion and about the lessons she has
learned. "I plan on doing some public speaking on
my change of heart and moving away from the abor-
tion industry," she told "The Eagle."
"I am just going to be spending a lot of time in
prayer and waiting for God to lead me to my next
opportunity. There are already quite a few events
planned." Now there's a REAL MOTHER for you!

rector Butch Wilson.
Museum supporters hope the new ex-
hibit will spark more interest for those tour-
ing this area and for the many who reside in
Hendry County.
For the exhibit opening, museum sup-
porters presented awards for a coloring con-
test held at each of the elementary schools.
The coloring page of Danny Dugong was
part of an information package presented to
each school on the historic animal and its
remains.
Winners were Jahara Martinez, 2nd
grade, Clewiston Elementary School; Hayley
Acevedo, 5th grade, Westside Elementary


School; Alex Granims, 2nd grade Clewiston
Christian School; and Alberto Paniagua, 3rd
grade Eastside Elementary School. Each
winner was presented with their framed art-
work and $50 for their efforts.
"We hope that more people will realize
what a wonderful asset we have with our
museum," said museum supporter Brenda
Lopez. "And we certainly hope more people
will take advantage and come see what is
here."
General museum hours are 9 a.m. to 4
p.m. Monday through Friday, but Wilson
says he is flexible to those special needs and
interests in the museum.
"We will work with anyone who wants
to come by and see our museum, no matter
when they would like to come," said Wil-
son.

official information about the nature of the
incident, or the details of FDLE's investiga-
tion into one of his officers.
"I am not privy to any of the investigation
information," he said.
He wished to clear any confusion that
the crime Herrera is charged with happened
during that officer's work hours.
"This was not an issue that occurred on
duty," explained the chief. "This happened
while he was at home, with his own child."


Chief Gutshall reported that Herrera was
placed on suspension without pay at the
city, pending the outcome of the charges
against him
According to the Hendry County Clerk's
Office, Herrera has an arraignment set for
June 8. The state attorney's office has not
said whether it will pursue the felony charg-
es against the officer.
But earlier this week, Chief Gutshall ex-
pressed his dismay.
"I'm disappointed," the chief said, when
asked what his own thoughts were on the
allegations against one of his employees.
"I would hope that it's untrue," he said.
