"Committed to Faithfully Serving the Readers of Clewiston and Hendry County"


Vol. 85, Number 44 50 cents


HCSO's work at Brown


Sugar scrutinized


Twin Lakes double


murder is investigated


Sheriff: "We're danged if
we do, danged if we don't"

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Loretta Braithwaite, a member of the
Brown Sugar planning
committee, left her home "
at a few minutes before 7
p.m. on Saturday to make
the short drive from Har-
lem to Clewiston Middle w aR
School --but she wouldn't *
get there for another three 1I k
hours. I I Jk
As the festival com-
mittee's lead person in
charge of the teen dance,
Ms. Braithwaite had the
keys to open the facilities Z 0 i
for the young men and
women who had pur- Commi
chased tickets to attend, Janet Ta
and the many more ex-
pected to show up at the describe
door that night. scene in
Just to be safe, she had
given herself enough time lem dur
to make it before they Brown 5
came, but she said she
was forced to stay back. Festival
Who would keep her, weekend<
with such a harmless
goal in mind, from getting
there?
The Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, Ms. Braithwaite insists.
According to her, scores of deputies,
some from counties far from Hendry,
stopped her on her way, and kept her
there, unable to leave Harlem, with so-
das heating up, hot dogs going stale and
candy melting in her car. If it weren't for
a friend of hers who parked his motor-
cycle nearby and then walked the rest of
the way to her to avoid the snarled traffic,

the dance would never have started, she
said.
"The cops were on every street that
there was," she said. "They were check-
ing IDs to see if they lived here, and if you
had a P.O. Box, you had to have some
documentation in your vehicle (stating
that you were a resident of
Harlem). It was pathetic."
Ms. Braithwaite isn't the
only person upset by the
performance of the sher-
iff's office.


"Overkill"
Janet Taylor, Hendry
r County commissioner, said
she was busy the day after
e 99 the festival fielding calls
e from people like Ms. Braith-
waite who complained that
sioner the deputies and the vari-
nlor ous agencies that came to
help them stepped beyond
s the their boundaries to keep
Har- anyone who was not a Har-
lem resident from entering
ng the it, and many residents from
igar leaving it.
Part of the confusion
ast seems to stem from a di-
rective that the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office dis-
tributed in the form of fly-
ers throughout the Harlem
community advising its intention to clear
out the area and return it to normalcy by
8 p.m. Ms. Taylor said. They would be ac-
complishing this mainly through check-
points.
In a case with possibly deeper reper-
cussions, the commissioner reported the
story of a family of an insulin-dependent
child. The family was in town for a re-

Search leads detectives to
two suspects

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
The inhabitants of a mobile home
on the outskirts of Clewis-
ton woke last week to the
sound of a crash. Opening
the door, they saw a car,
red in color, whose front
portion was pinned un-
derneath the home, and a
man inside who had been
shot in the head.
Across the street, an-
other lay on the street dy-
ing, with a bullet in his
stomach, and would die,
after being transported to Victor Gi
the hospital.
It seems that 33-year-
old Salomone Aguedas
and 24-year-old Fran-
cisco Lorenzo never had
a chance. The two were
gunned down violently in
what Hendry County Sher-
iff's Officials are saying
was an attempted robbery,
botched.
On Monday, two sher-
iff cruisers searching for '"
a suspect in an unrelated Abelardo
case in the Twin Lakes sub-
division marked where the
crime happened, deputies pointing in
the direction of a tree and some mobile
homes, and a spot where broken glass
from the shooting could still be seen on
the road.
Two children riding on a single bicycle
said the shadow of that tree was where
one of the men who had been shot fell.
During an investigation into the crime,
deputies identified two suspects, Abelar-

do Gonzalez, 19, and Victor Garcia, 17. At
this stage of the case, the sheriff's office
is not saying how the two were named
suspects, whether witnesses saw them
or if someone called in a tip, but report
that the suspects admitted their involve-
ment in the crime.
The suspects shot the
two men with "the intent
of robbing them," said
Lt. Susan Harrelle, HCSO
spokesperson.
Back at the home
where the car came to a
rest, a woman, with two
sons of her own, said she
was frightened by the
noise that morning. A few
days earlier someone had
driven a car into a near-
cia. by utility pole and she
thought it was the same
person running amok
again.
Her children slept
in the bedroom closest
to where the car hit the
home. At just a few min-
utes before 3 a.m. that
morning, the sound woke
everyone in the house.
"I didn't see when it
hit, but I saw a guy," her
son said.
In the sweltering heat
Gonzalez. of a Monday afternoon,
people asked to know the
identity of the suspects, if
only to validate the rumors that were al-
ready swirling in the small community.
"They're known by different names
here," a 17-year-old resident said.
One of them was more commonly
known as "Toro," which is Spanish for
"Bull." The suspects had some notoriety.
"They were pretty much known as

Letter to the editor


A Great Young Man
I was stoned after reading the news ar-
ticle written by Jose Jesus Zaragoza about
John Herrera.
I have known John since he was fourteen
years old. He was living with his mother and
stepfather on East Obispo in the same block
my mother lives.
John has always been a great young man,
he went to Clewiston High School with my
youngest child.
His dream since he was a little boy was to
become a police officer and he reached his
goal. I considered him one the most polite
and best police officers in Clewiston.


After he got married he moved to the
same block across from my mother and a
few houses from his mother. His wife and
John had a beautiful premature baby, as a
mother of a premature baby I know how
delicate this babies are.
John is a loving son, husband and father.
Have you seen this baby before you wrote
this article?
Yamilet, John and Yasmin's daughter is
sixteen months old, she is a beautiful healthy
baby without any disfiguration or disability.
We welcome anyone that wants to meet her
in person.
Sincerely,
Natasha Lugo

Thanks for participating!
WHO IS IN CHARGE?
Could someone please tell me who is in
charge of Clewiston? To me, driving through
on Saturday night (May 1st) it seems like any
riff raff was in charge. Cars taking over lo-
cal businesses not to bring in money, but
yet nothing but trouble. Also, to look at it,
we (the tax payers) are having to fund all of
this to bring in forces from other counties
because there is no control. Also, how can
a town allow this type of event to happen
when it brings nothing but trouble? Who al-
lows this and how does a town not say No!

ALIVE AND KICKING
From a patron of this year's Brown Sugar
Festival, racial profiling is alive and kicking.
That is the only way to explain why pro-
spective patrons of the festival were denied
entrance to Harlem, where the festival was
being held. I was told by people that were
trying to get into Harlem that if their licenses
didn't have a Harlem address, they had to
turn around and return home not being al-
lowed to do what some of them traveled
more than a hundred miles to do, celebrate
with the Brown Sugar family, the reunion
for the graduates of Harlem Academy and
descendants of graduates. Not one car was
stopped last weekend and denied permis-
sion to the Sugar Festival because they didn't
have a Clewiston address. Could it be more
obvious? Why do we need a hundred offi-
cers to patrol our festival? There has been
only one serious incident in 32 years. Quit
wasting the tax payers' money.

Panther kitten killed


FWC responded to a vehicle killed pan-
ther kitten Thursday morning, April 29, in
Hendry County, at the intersection of Church
Road and S. Church Road near the Hendry
County landfill.
The kitten was estimated to be about six
months old, weighed 32 pounds, was a fe-
male, and did not have a kinked tail, cowlick
or transponder chip.
Because of the kitten's age (still depen-
dant on its mother) and our history with
mothers hanging around the vicinity until
the fate of their kitten is known, we left the
kitten near the scene over night in the hopes
that the mother would find her if she was
still looking for her.
The area was thoroughly searched for
adult female tracks (clues as to where the
best place might be to leave the kitten) but
none were found.
Therefore, the kitten was left in the most
logical place nearest the collision site and
cameras were set up to monitor the scene.
There was no activity near the carcass
and no additional tracks were found after
another thorough search of the surrounding
areas.
The kitten was removed this morning
and is currently being maintained at the
Naples office.
A necropsy will be performed at a later
date after which the remains will be archived
at the Florida Museum of Natural History.

Lake 0 releases increase


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District have began increas-
ing releases from Lake Okeechobee to the
Caloosahatchee and St. Lucie estuaries at 7
a.m. on Monday, May 3, 2010.
With the lake level currently averaging
15 feet NGVD and the wet season only a
few weeks away, the goals of this release
are to:
Lower the lake's water level as quickly
as allowed under the 2008 Lake Okeecho-
bee Regulation Schedule (2008 LORS),
thereby providing storage for future rain
and storm events.
Reduce the potential for an unsafe
build-up of pressure on the Herbert Hoover
Dike.
Reduce the probability of detrimental
ecological conditions in the lake that could
cause more serious impacts to the lake and
estuaries in the future.
Water managers may make releases in
either constant or pulse-like patterns. Engi-
neers and scientists will continue to closely

monitor and assess system conditions. To
significantly decrease the lake level, how-
ever, these releases will likely continue well
into the wet season.
"For the past couple of months we've
tried hard to keep releases to the estuaries
low. We were well aware of the poten-
tial harm those freshwater releases could
cause," said Stu Appelbaum, Jacksonville
District deputy for Restoration Program
Management. "Unfortunately, we're run-
ning out of room for more water in the lake
and the lake's ecology is badly threatened.
We really want to get the lake level down
because we're closing in on what is likely
to be an unusually wet storm season."
The Corps strives to maintain lake lev-
els between 12.5 and 15.5 feet NGVD. At
the beginning of the wet season, the pre-
ferred lake level is near the lower end of
the management range, about 12.5 feet, to
allow capacity in the lake for wet season
precipitation and run off.

Parents, remember to be the host with the most ...


Submitted by the Drug Free
Hendry Coalition
As a parent, you would never host a party
with alcohol for teens, but do you know
how to keep them from sneaking it in the
front door? With graduation right around
the corner, it's a good time to brush up on
your chaperone and teen party hosting skills
-- Be The Wall!
Utilize a location that has clear entranc-
es and exits, such as your home or a com-
munity center. If there are multiple exits,
block off the ones you do not want used or
use other chaperones to block the exits.
Work with your teen to decide on a
guest list ahead of time. Set a limit to the
number of people who may attend and
make a contingency plan for politely turning
away party-crashers. It may be helpful to use
the phrase 'by invitation only' on the invita-
tions and by the entrance.


On the invitation, clearly state the be-
ginning and ending time, what to bring, and
what NOT to bring.
Ask teens to leave purses or backpacks
locked in their cars or at the front door. Dis-
courage teens from going back and forth
from your home to their car.
Lock up any alcohol in your home
before the party. Ask adults who may be
attending the party to leave their alcohol at
home for the event.
Provide plenty to keep them enter-
tained. Utilize the television, swimming
pool, video games, karaoke machine, etc.
Remember, different things may entertain
different teens.
Provide plenty of space for them to just
'hang out' comfortably where you can see
them but not 'hover' over them.
Utilize single-serve cans instead of dis-
posable cups. DO NOT use a punch bowl
or pitchers.


Monitor behavior by circulating around
the home and interacting with teens. If you
are suspicious of any particular person,
don't single them out. Work with your teen
ahead of time to agree upon a course of ac-
tion should such a situation arise.
Never let a teen that you believe to be
impaired leave your home.
Events such as Prom and Graduation pro-
vide a unique opportunity for parents and
other adults to communicate to teens their
expectations and rules pertaining to alcohol
use. On a recent Student Social Norms Sur-
vey, Hendry teens rate parents as their #1
source for believable information! By talking
often and honestly about alcohol, you have
the ability to influence your child's decisions
about underage drinking. Teens who talk to
their parents about alcohol regularly are less
likely to drink.
The 2009 Student Social Norms survey
also reports that Hendry County teens are


choosing to reject alcohol as part of growing
up. With a continued community response
to underage drinking, Hendry County will
keep empowering its teens to make the
right decisions when it comes to alcohol
and other drugs. A special thanks to Hendry
County parents-your communication with
the teens is clearly working, keep it up! Be
Clear. Be Firm. Be Consistent. Be the Wall
between your teens and alcohol.
FLORIDA HOUSE PARTY LAW says "No
person having control of any residence shall
allow an open house party to take placed
at said residence if any alcoholic beverage
or drug is possessed or consumed at said
residence by any minor where the person
knows that an alcoholic beverage or drug
is in the possession of or being consumed
by a minor at said residence and where the
person fails to take reasonable steps to pre-
vent the possession or consumption of the
alcoholic beverage or drug.

Running Short of Bullets
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Soldiers on the battlefield were fighting bravely,
but they began to run out of ammunition. Realizing
that their fight for freedom could only continue if
they could find more ammunition, one soldier risked
his life to crawl across the battle zone, picking up
bullets from wounded and dying soldiers, so their
fight for the right could continue.
It's hard to win the battle when you are running
short of bullets. Right now, there's an ammunition
shortage in the most decisive battle of all: the battle
for human souls, the battle for human lives. It began
at the cross where Jesus died and continues today in
cities and towns across this country and all over the
world. It's a fight to liberate people from the penalty
and power of sin. It's a battle to claim people and
souls for Christ.
But on many fronts in the battle, God's soldiers
are i i,._. back the enemy and pushing back the
darkness, but they're running short of bullets. The
problem isn't that the ammo isn't out there as much
as too many of us are sitting on the ammunition we
have instead of making it available.
The ammunition I'm referring to is the power of
prayer. The battle for a lost and dying world is every
believer's battle, not just the battle for a few spiri-
tual individuals who take the risks, exercise the faith,
and make the sacrifices. For those of us fighting on
the front lines, it's our responsibility to make every
bullet count, to stay on mission, to always take the
high road, and put our faith in Jehovah Jireh, our
Provider.
For those on the home front, we need your sup
port! We all need to throw everything we can into
this battle for which Jesus gave everything He had!
We all need to shoot off our prayer bullets.
Thursday, May 6, has been designated as the Na-
tional Day of Prayer for 2010. Christians throughout
our nation are encouraged to exercise the power of
prayer we have been blessed with to help bless oth-
ers and invite God into our lives and the workings of
our nation.
We live in a world that is increasingly hostile to
the Christian faith, a world that grows more and
more self centered every day, a world that has lost
the meaning of the word "sacrifice," that does not
understand the commitment of faith.
In a world all too often filled with people con-
cerned about themselves first, characterized with
an impersonal "what's in it for me" attitude, we are
called to witness to something more important: love
that gives of itself for others; love that cares about
others; and love that makes lives meaningful and

This is the world in which we are called to share
God's love. This is the world we are called to pray
for.

Mother's Day
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Mother's Day comes before Father's Day: I've al-
ways recommended that we males might do some-
thing really special since the ladies have a month
longer to think about how to respond. We set the
stage, as it were, and show the fair sex our feelings
let's not disappoint them! One of the things that is
totally amazing is that God came to visit us as a hu-
man being! No prophets, no handing down rules, no
"inspired" leaders, no wise persons; but a personal
visit from God Himself! More than just a visit that
God chose to come into the world in human form by


human means!
He came with a mother and step-father, brothers
and sisters, growing and going to the temple for the
appropriate religious rites; all with the shepherding
of worldly parents as life began. This weekend we
celebrate Mother's Day that worldly parent who
nurtures, sustains, encourages, teaches, protects,
leads, keeps a home together, and does a host of
unthought-of chores. The Lord chose to participate
in our lives to the fullest; hallowing and paying hom-
age to His mother during His last earthly moments;
"Woman, here is your son" and the disciple "Here
is your mother"(John 19:26-27). Mary knows how
to handle a Son who may be seen as a bit impudent
when it comes to changing water into wine, when
Jesus tells her "Dear woman, why do you involve
me?"(John 2:4) and she replies to the servants "Do
whatever He tells you"(ibid, v.5), knowing all the
time that her request will not be in vain. She is anx-
iouswhen He is lost (Luke 2:48ff) and understanding
when a child's reply comes as an explanation that is
at once earthly and Heavenly.
When many of the world's religions downplay
the importance of the human condition; the Incar-
nation that has been held by Christians from the
beginning has been central to the faith. Christians
take seriously their humanity; and the one in our
lives who first meets our needs, helps us from total
dependency to independent living, guides us along
the way, is there when things are good and when
things are not so good; deserves a special place on
our calendars and then some! One -* *-r-i. .- ..
I served honored mothers on Mother's Day by hav-
ing a breakfast for them after services. I'd watch the
covered dishes being brought into the Church for
this special occasion, being carried by....guess who?
Even on a day to honor them, it seemed that they
did the cooking and preparation, and that had to be
changed. The men got together and cooked after
that as they might rightly do.
The women did a great job on Father's Day; they
cooked (again) and celebrated the special day for
the men. Mothers are like that -seeing beyond, hold-
ing together, carrying their part of the load and then
some, and bearing the image of God to us; in their
human form hallowed by God and reflecting the di-
vine form so eloquently along the way, too!

CHS Career Day a success School Happenings


Clewiston High School held its Career
Day on April 21 for all ninth through twelfth
grade students.
It was sponsored by the Career Day team:
Bianca Robinson, Gregory Korean, Janice
Lee and Roberto Sanchez. Thanks to the
CHS staff and the many community busi-
nesses, this was a successful experience for
our students.This year's Career Day hosted
over 50 presenters. Our students appreciate
the enrichment activities and the exposure


'I


to realistic careers and job opportunities. It
was truly a day to be remembered! The high
school students explored their career options
in preparation for college, and these pre-
sentations provided them with motivation,
encouragement and first-hand information.
We would not have had this level of success
without the sponsorship and support of the
presenters, CHS staff and students. Thanks
again for your continued support of quality
education at Clewiston High School.

Clewiston High School Girls Tennis ..
,. . :L.-


CLEWISTON, Fla. (CSD) A funny thing
happened to Mike Kemp a couple of years
ago when he stopped by Athletic Director
Joe Roth's office to ask him who the new
girls tennis coach would be.
"I had a few girls in my science class
tell me that their tennis coach had left the
school, and they wanted to know who their
new coach would be," Kemp said. "When
I asked the A.D. who it would be, he said,
'You.' I said, 'No, I'm just asking who it is.'
Again, he replied, 'You.'"
Kemp took over for the spring 2009 sea-
son and the team placed third at the district
level, missing the regionals by one spot.
"So, our goal this spring was to be the
first Clewiston High School girls tennis team
to qualify for the regionals as a team, and we
were able to do that by finishing second at
the district level," Kemp said. "It was a very
successful season for us."
After beginning the season at 3-0 in match

play, the Fighting Tigers finished 5-5. At the
district meet, senior Taylor Beatty placed
first at No. 3 singles, senior Sarah Espinosa
was second at No. 1 singles, senior Delianys
Morera was second at No. 2 singles, junior
Carly Berner was second at No. 4 singles
and senior Danielle Camaratta was third at
No. 5 singles. Junior Jade Sandelli was the
first alternate.
In doubles, both the No. 1 team of Es-
pinosa and Beatty and the No. 2 team of
Morera and Berner placed second in the dis-
trict meet.
"Carly Berner really made great strides
for us this year," Kemp said. "She had never
played high school tennis before this spring,
and she really improved dramatically.
"As far as the nucleus of our team was
concerned, that was Sarah, Taylor and Delia-
nys. They were our top three players for the
last two years. They provided a lot of good
leadership and they will be missed."

cept legal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or

The District's agency action as set forth in the Staff Reports shall become
final unless a btimely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sec-
tions 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for fil-
ing a petition. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth
below, followed by the procedures for pursuming mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the District's permit-
ting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must
contain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) in the
Office of the Clerk at the SFWMD Headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road,
West Palm Beach, FL 33406. Pursuant to Rule 28-106.104 Fla. Admin. Code,
any documents received after 5:00 p.m. shall be filed as of 8:00 a.m. on the
next regular business day. Filings by e-mail will not be accepted. A copy of
the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the persons named
above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within the 21 days
of publication of notice, or other receipt of the written notice, whichever
first occurs first, constitutes a waiver of any right such person has to an ad-
ministrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sctions 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat as provided by Subsection 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
dress indicated above at the bme of filing.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the District's action is
based must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
mmin. Code, including:
(1) Identification of the action being contested, including the permit num
er, application number, District file number or any other SFWMD identifi-
cation number, if known.
(2) The name, address and telephone number of the petitioner and peti-
boner's representative, if any.
(3)An explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be af-
fected by the agency determination.
(4)A statement of when and how the petitoner received notice of the
SFWMD's decision.
(5) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
thepetition must so indicate.
(6)A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific
facts the pebtioner contends warrant reversal or modificaton of the
SFWMD's proposed acton.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed action.
(8) If disputed issues of material fact exist, the statement must also in-
dude an explanation of how the alleged facts relate to the specific rules
or statutes.
(9) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the
action the pebtioner wishes the SFWMD to take with respect to the
SFWMD's proposed acton.
A pebtion that does not dispute the material facts on which the District'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, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means
that the District's final action may be different from the position taken by it
in this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediation are set forth in Section 120.573 Fla.
Stats, and Rules 28-106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The
SFWMD is not proposing mediaton for these agency actions under Section
120.573

ties were local or not, Ms. Taylor said, but
she argues that no one outside of the county
should have been called in to police the
event.
But not everyone is mad at the sheriff.
Tim Brown, the Brown Sugar Festival
president, said he was "still giving them (the
sheriff's office) credit. I think they still did a
good job to do the things we asked them
to."
Mr. Brown said he looked forward to
meeting with the sheriff in the wake of the
festival, but even he said the number of dep-
uties that night was "overkill."
With so much attention and screening
from the law enforcement agencies, Ms. Tay-
lor is sure that the festival is in a position to
report much less revenue than last year. One
of the main purposes of the event, she said,
is to raise funds for scholarships for graduat-
ing seniors. Last year $25,000 was awarded
to ten students, but this year's group of 12
students may stand to get much less than
that once the returns from the dance ticket
sales and other items are tallied up.
But more disturbing is what Ms. Taylor
was hearing from all those callers.
"I think they felt the sheriff's office was
just racial profiling," said Ms. Taylor. "It was
police galore," the commissioner said, add-
ing that at one point during the festival, dur-
ing the opening program, she had to stop
speaking until a helicopter hovering above
the main stage left the area. "It was like we


were at war."


"Policing was fair"
For his part, Sheriff Steve Whidden ex-
pressed surprise at the criticism. After all, it
was the Brown Sugar Committee and Ms.
Taylor who approached the sheriff's office
about providing police protection in the first
place.
"I do it for their benefit and then I get grief
about it," said Sheriff Whidden, who rein-
forced his opinion that there were fewer of-
ficers patrolling the streets during this most
recent Brown Sugar Festival than in previous
years.
While he couldn't immediately provide
those numbers, the sheriff said he reallo-
cated positions differently, which may have
given the appearance of more deputies on
the road.
Listening to the concerns which were ex-
pressed about the "heavy-handed" policing,
the sheriff offered that it wasn't a cake walk
for deputies, either.
"It got to a point this Saturday that we
couldn't get to our own officers," he said.
"There was no way to get an ambulance in
there. We were gridlocked, with no room to
walk."
One of the questions from the oppos-
ing camp is: Why would there need to be
such a drastic difference in policing meth-
ods between the Sugar Festival, which did
not require checkpoints, and Brown Sugar
Festival?
The sheriff answers that simply: It's the
numbers.
While reports of problems at the actual
acre-and-a-half park where the Brown Sugar
Festival is held are few and far between, he
admits, they are the calls from outside that
area from the hundreds of cars trying to get
in that makes the situation unbearable.
Unlawful things happen, he said.
"We have a huge increase in crimes,
fights, assaults, car chases. Five years ago we
had a murder at Brown Sugar from some-

troublesome kids, into drugs and all that,"
the young man said. "Victor, he used to, but
then, I guess he was living with his girlfriend
and he stopped. He would walk through
here."
Gonzalez was taken to the Hendry Coun-


ty Jail on charges of homicide, aggravated
battery, robbery and shooting into an occu-
pied vehicle. Garcia is charged with homi-
cide and robbery and was taken to a juvenile
detention facility.
When asked how safe she felt in her own
neighborhood, the woman said she didn't
feel secure at all.
Was she scared?
"Well, yes," she said in Spanish. "But we
can't just get up and leave our home."


one who was not from Hendry County," he
said.
It is also difficult to argue against some-
thing that is free, Sheriff Whidden contin-
ued. According to him, the sheriff's office
agreed to provide protection at no cost to
the festival, absorbing the cost within the
department itself. Far more remarkable, not
a single one of the neighboring agencies
that stepped up to help has asked for reim-
bursement for those services, he said. The
agencies on-hand during the sugar festival
included sheriff's offices from Palm Beach,
Highlands, Collier, Glades, Lee and Char-
lotte.
"Thank Heaven that these other coun-
ties have not billed us," he said. "They
mentioned last year that they could bill our


county commission. If each agency billed
out appropriately, I'm just guesstimating,
but you're looking at $60,000 or $70,000."
With his own department strapped for
money, and staring down the barrel of a ten
percent budget reduction, it may very well
be that even he will be forced to charge the
festival for police protection in the future.
"The Brown Sugar committee would
have to pay for it," he said. "I don't want to
have to do that, but, number one, our bud-
get restraints are hitting us hard and, num-
ber two, we provide security and then get
hammered for doing it. You're danged if you
do, danged if you don't."
