Information meltdown leaves city in the dark


7 II I?
INI/Jose Zaragoza
A communications blackout knocked down all land lines, cell phones, Internet and other means of communication this week. One of the shining moments
of the event? The Clewiston Police Department. Along with members of the Hendry County Sheriff's Office, the department got to work immediately, and
saw to it that residents were safe and secure.


All lines of communication
cut on Monday for five
hours

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Officials this week reported that,
months after Embarq, now CenturyLink,
promised that an event of the magnitude
of the 2008 meltdown, that saw all forms


of communication in the city of Clewiston
come to a screeching halt, would never
happen again, it happened again.
"This kind of thing we don't need,"
said Judi Kennington-Korf, Hendry Coun-
ty administrator during a telephone in-
terview on Tuesday. "It was very much a
disappointment to us yesterday."
In a connected city like Clewiston, the
information blackout severed the com-
munity's lines to the outside world -- lit-
erally. All land lines were down. All cell
phones were down, save for their inter-


mittent return in 10-second blasts.
This affected many other things. No
one could call in an emergency via 911.
Hospitals could not communicate with
law enforcement. Credit and debit sys-
tems were down at most, if not all, busi-
nesses. ATMs stopped working. At large
financial institutions, and even residential
homes, all forms of alarms shut down.
If you had the plan to rob a bank in
place, now was the time to do it, Don
Gutshall, Clewiston police chief, said on
Monday. He had just stepped in from


patrolling the streets with his windows
down, and a close ear to the radio sys-
tems, which fortunately were still work-
ing and allowed agencies to communi-
cate with one another.
Most of his staff, including dispatchers
and animal control workers, were sent
to the field to notify officers who live in
Clewiston to report to duty, and to keep
an eye out for anyone who might be in
need of help.

Weekend benefit this Saturday for Barfield son


Organizers promise
music, games, food, more

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Allen Barfield is a person for whom
adjectives seem to have been solely in-
vented.
His friend and neighbor, Luke Mazzi-
na, does his best to use them.
"He's 20-feet tall and 1,000 pounds,
but he's the nicest guy in the world," Mr.
Mazzina says about his friend.
Mr. Barfield is that person you see
waking up before most whenever there's
a benefit to be had at the Elks Lodge,


cooking. He's always done this, and many
know him simply because of it.
On Saturday, he'll be doing the same
thing, being easily spotted among the
crowd for this latest benefit: that of his
son.
Mr. Mazzina's friend is experiencing
one of the harder times in his life. Mr. Bar-
field has a son who is battling cancer, and
because of the illness, the younger Mr.
Barfield has had a hard time keeping up
with the mounting medical and personal
bills.
He has children to support, and the
regular trips to Miami for treatment take
the best out of any man.
"Ruben was in the building industry,
and he's taken a whop in the last three


years," said the elder Barfield. "He hasn't
been able to work, but he had been able
to do a little work to get by. Now he's un-
able to work and we're looking to help
him out."
Helping Ruben out is helping Allen
out.
Mr. Mazzina won't let that skepticism
get in the way of helping his friend.
"I don't know him (Ruben) as well as
I know Allen," Mr. Mazzina said. "I know
he's just a hard worker, loves his children.
He's a builder, just as hard working a guy
as his old man."
"I talked to him yesterday. He has
been having headaches and the doctor
told him it's just lymph nodes, nor worse
than that," said Allen. "But because he's


been having headaches, he thinks he has
brain cancer. It's a lot of stress."
Fortunately, Mr. Mazzina is confident
that there are plenty of people right here
in Clewiston who will want to help. Even
if they don't like barbecue, or even if they
might not be in town, Mr. Barfield hopes
people will buy a couple of $10 tickets.
"'I want to buy whole book,'" is what
Mr. Mazzina hopes to hear.

FWC arrests 3

Day after day, officers with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) use their extensive knowledge of the
woods and water to track down individuals
who are suspected of abusing our state's
precious fish and wildlife resources. That's
just what happened Thursday night, on a
dark country road in Hendry County.
Knowing that high water forces deer out
of the swamps and up near roads to feed,
officers conducted surveillance on County
Road 832 near Okaloacoochee Slough Wild-
life Management Area when they noticed a
van turning around several times and shin-
ing lights in the woods. Officers stopped the
van and questioned the subjects. Inside the
van, the officers found four deer that had
been shot.
Officers charged three Miami-Dade coun-
ty men Lazaro Lopez, age 48, of Hialeah,
Andres Mena Jr., age 25, of Miami and An-
dres Mena Sr., age 44, of Miami with four
counts each of illegally taking deer at night
with a gun and a light during the closed sea-
son and four counts each of hunting from
a county-maintained road. The men were
booked into the Hendry County Jail on the
misdemeanor charges.
"As this case shows, suspected poachers
will travel long distances to kill deer," said
FWC Capt. Jeff Ardelean. "FWC officers are
dedicated to protecting our fish and wildlife
resources, particularly when they are most
vulnerable."

Technical Education Center nears completion
Construction work on Palm Beach State College's new Technical Education Center in Belle Glade with each day re-
flects the quick progress on the eventual opening of the center. The more than 21,000 square foot addition to the Belle
Glade campus of the college was built at a cost of $13 million, which includes state and private funding. The center will
include welding, agricultural science, corrections academy, and many more programs to serve students in the area.

Clarification

As targets of recent questionable in-
tent, a family interviewed for our story last
week titled "Twin Lakes double murder is
investigated" wish to clarify that they did
not provide this newspaper with the facts
about the crime.
This is true.
As was stated in that story, but to fur-
ther clarify this point, the information
used, names of suspects and deceased,
ages, location of the crime, nature of the
charges faced by suspects, as well as all
official, recorded statements in the case,
were provided by the Hendry County

Communities can make a difference in HIV fight


By Pat Dobbins
Community teamwork is essential to suc-
cess and that was the focus of a meeting
held on Saturday, May 1 at Flora and Ella's
restaurant.
Four sororities and fraternities were rep-
resented at the meeting as well as leadership
from the Hendry and Glades County Health
Departments and Lee Memorial Health Sys-


tens.
This network of partners met to discuss
the Man-Up mobilization activity and facilita-
tion of response focusing the prevention and
treatment of HIV/AIDS.
A total of 10 people from the counties of
Hendry, Glades, Collier and Lee attended
this very important meeting which has all
ready shown great progress.
Resources were identified for HIV preven-


tion and treatment, and non-governmental
agencies will lobby for funding for the treat-
ment and prevention of HIV/AIDS in Hendry,
Glades, Collier and Lee Counties.
Robert Bobo, Program Manager HIV/
AIDS/STD, Department of Health, Hendry
County was the facilitator of the meeting
and was very impressed at the networking
efforts of the group.
Additional meetings are being developed


and will be held in Hendry County, as well
as Lee and Collier Counties, and will include
faith-based organizations, community-
based organizations, and marketing/entre-
preneurs.
Education is a key component to fighting
this preventable disease.

Flood insurance critical to housing market recovery


By Rep. Tom Rooney
Last month, many Floridians looking to
buy homes ran into an unexpected obstacle
- an inability to purchase flood insurance,
which is required at most closings in our
state. As a result, home closings ground to a
halt, leaving sellers scrambling and buyers at
risk of losing out on the first-time homebuy-
ers' tax credit that expired on April 30.
Buyers could not purchase new flood
insurance policies because Congress failed
to reauthorize the National Flood Insurance
Program before it expired on March 28. A
temporary extension of NFIP was held hos-
tage to unrelated partisan gridlock because
it was included in a larger bill filled with
controversial items that Congress did not
approve before adjourning for the Easter
district work period. Without an extension,
NFIP, which is run by the Federal Emergency
Management Agency, could not issue or re-


new policies.
Flooding is America's most common and
most damaging natural disaster, affecting
homes in all 50 states. However, most pri-
vate insurance companies do not offer their
own flood insurance coverage, and standard
homeowners' insurance does not cover
flooding. Congress recognized this prob-
lem and established NFIP in 1968 so that
homeowners and buyers could purchase
flood insurance for their homes. Federal law
requires homes and buildings in high-risk
flood areas to have flood policies in order
to receive approval for federally regulated or
insured mortgages.
Around 90 percent of all flood insurance
policies originate with NFIP, with Floridians
holding nearly 40% of all policies. Therefore,
Florida suffers disproportionately when the
program lapses and cannot issue new poli-
cies.
Congress finally approved a short-term


NFIP extension on April 15 that included a
retroactive fix for homeowners whose poli-
cies lapsed after March 28. However, this
"fix" was not of much help to those who
were waiting to close on properties, or who
saw their mortgage applications rejected
because they could not purchase flood in-
surance. The NFIP delay was an unfortunate
and unnecessary setback on the path to
homeownership for many Floridians, and it
may have cost some of them the chance to
take advantage of the first-time homebuyer
tax credit before it expired. The delay also
hurt sellers, many of whom had waited
years to find a buyer only to see sales fall
through.
To prevent delays from occurring again -
the program has lapsed twice since February
- Congress needs to pass a long-term NFIP
reauthorization. Unfortunately, since the pro-
gram expired in September 2008, Congress
has merely passed one short-term extension


after another. Homebuyers, sellers, realtors,
insurers and lenders need the stability and
predictability of a true long-term reauthori-
zation of the program. If homebuyers can-
not know whether the flood insurance they
need to apply for their mortgages will be
available when they need it, our struggling
housing market cannot recover.
I am working with fellow members of
Florida's Congressional delegation, on a
bipartisan basis, to complete a long-term
reauthorization of the National Flood Insur-
ance Program. A long-term reauthorization
will bring much-needed stability to the hous-
ing market, put more Floridians on the path
to home ownership, and help ensure that
when a flood strikes, families have the cov-
erage they need.

in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Census


2010


OPEN THE DOOR TO A CENSUS TAKER,

AND YOU OPEN DOORS FOR FEDERAL FUNDING FOR
More community services, senior programs, hospitals, schools, libraries and roads...
Census data also helps determine federal, state and local government representation.
If you did not send back your census form, you will receive a visit from a census taker. If a census taker visits you, here's what
you should do:
First, ask to see an ID. All census workers carry official government badges marked with just their name; they may also
have a "U.S. Census Bureau" bag. A census taker will never ask to enter your home.
Answer the census form questions for your entire household (you must be at least 15 years old to answer questions) so that
the census taker can record the results for submission to the Census Bureau.
Census takers may, visit local homes several times to obtain resident information. Should a census taker come when you are
away from your home, he/she will leave a contact number. If you prefer, you can schedule a visit with your census taker. If a
census taker has not visited your home or you have a question about your participation with the census, call 1-866-872-6868.

8 Clewiston News Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 13, 2010


A look from old books


to art treasures


Friends of the library to
begin reader's digest
condensed book drive
A lot of people in Clewiston probably
have a few Reader's Digest Condensed
Books. They were popular a number of
years ago, so people often inherit them
from parents of grandparents, or else
bought them themselves back when they
were prized.
These days, they are a lot less popular,
but the Friends of the Clewiston Library still
want them. The Friends of the Clewiston
Public Library will be holding a Reader's
Digest Condensed book drive starting on
May 13.
Anybody who has old Reader's Digest
Books can bring them to the library. When
enough have been gathered, the Friends
will send them off to help raise funds to
support library programs and activities.
"It's a great way to raise funds to help
the library, using old Reader's Digest
books," says Frank Harris, President of


the Friends of the Clewiston Public Library
and the Clewiston Public Library Advisory
Board, "I bet most people in town have
one or two of them, at least".
It's absolutely free to donate them at
the library, too. There is no cost, nor any
time commitment except to bring the old
Reader's Digest books in.
The books will be sold to a small Florida
company that makes them into art objects.
Because of this, they must be newer than
about 1970, and must not have a broken
back or spine. That way, they will be strong
enough to survive the process by which
they are transformed from old books to art
treasures.
This new drive should not prevent peo-
ple from also donating used cell phones at
the library. The Used Cell Phone Drive is
still going strong, and people are encour-
aged to bring the cell phones they can't use
any more to the library, to help the Friends
support library programs.
For more information, please call Li-
brary Director Eric Tommerdahl, at 863-
983-1493.

Clewiston Golf's Amenities


CLEWISTON, Fla. (CSD) -With league
play, tournaments, high school meets, Ju-
nior Golf clinics, and individual and group
play, the City of Clewiston Golf Course is
the site for more than 22,000 rounds of golf
annually and is the Clewiston Sports Desk's
featured sports organization of the week.
"We have a very well-utilized course,
and one of the things we're really empha-
sizing right now is developing our Junior
Golf program because we want that to
grow," said Adolfo Pena, Director of Golf
for nearly 10 years. "The majority of the
play occurs between November and March
because of how hot it gets here during the
summer."
The course, which was designed in the
Donald Ross style, was established in 1929.
Back then, a round of golf was 50 cents,
or $2 per month. The original course was
designed by Stiles and Van Kleeck, golf ar-
chitects of New York, N.Y, and St. Peters-
burg, Fla., and Captain Deane Duff, general
manager of the Clewiston Company (later
the United States Sugar Corporation), un-
der whose direction the then-new course
was constructed.
Golfers today enjoy the same scenery
and challenges that golfers experienced
back in the 1930s. Open to the public, the
course is located minutes from U.S. High
27 and an hour's drive from Fort Myers and
West Palm Beach. Less than 10 minutes


away are restaurants and lodging. Course
hours through Sept. 30 are 7:30 a.m. to 6
p.m. Tuesday through Sunday, and 7:30
a.m. to 3 p.m. on holidays.
Tournaments include the 156-player
Tiger Boosters on May 15, the Elks Lodge
Invitational in June, the Gators vs. the
World Ryder Cup Challenge in October, the
Big Lake Scramble benefiting the Iglesias
Foundation Scholarship in December, the
American Red Cross in February, the Ro-
tary Club Campbell Nall Memorial Scholar-
ship in March and the CSL Two-Man Best
Ball Invitational in April.
"Last year our tournaments raised more
than $100,000 for charitable organizations,"
added Pena, who said that the course does
not charge Clewiston or Moore Haven high
schools for using the course for their home
meets.
The Clewiston Golf Course has a fully
stocked pro shop, a lighted driving range
and a putting green. Lessons are provided
seasonally by PGA golf pro Robbie Rush
and by Jenny Lu.
Pena is assisted by Golf Course Superin-
tendent Ronnie Ford and Grounds Super-
visor Joey Guasp. Pena's son, Brandon,
plays for Florida Gulf Coast University.
For more information about the City of
Clewiston Golf Course, please call 863-983-
1448. The course is located at 1201 San
Luiz Ave. in Clewiston.

SFWMD Introduces Florida Water Star to South Florida


Program recognizes new
and existing homes for
water-saving measures

As part of its ongoing efforts to encour-
age efficient water use, the South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) has
introduced the Florida Water Star building
certification program to South Florida.
Created by the St. Johns River Water Man-
agement District and now being implement-
ed in both South and Southwest Florida,
Florida Water Star is a points-based recog-
nition program that encourages water effi-
ciency in household appliances, plumbing
fixtures, irrigation systems and landscapes.
The SFWMD is piloting the program in
counties along its northern boundary, which
border its Florida Water Star partners.
"Florida Water Star shows how we are
working with our fellow water management
districts to bring the best water conservation
ideas and proven programs to all Floridians,"
said SFWMD Governing Board Vice Chair-
man Jerry Montgomery "Creative thinking
and cooperative spirit generates innovative
solutions for water conservation and helps
us protect our state's limited water resourc-
es for the long term."
Conservation-minded developers, build-
ers and homeowners who sign up for the
program agree to meet water-efficiency cri-
teria that address landscaping, irrigation and
indoor features.
After upgrades have been installed, a SF-
WMD-trained certifier verifies that the build-
ing meets all the necessary prerequisites and
has achieved enough points in each of the
three categories to qualify for Florida Water
Star certification.
The number of points necessary for cer-
tification varies by tier. The Gold and Silver
criteria detail water-efficient options for new
single-family residential construction, with

Thrift shop open at Church of God
The Church of God of Prophecy, in Moore
Haven, will have a thrift shop open on Sat-
urdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., all things are

penses of the church.

the Gold tier conserving more water.
Developed in late 2009 by the South
Florida and St. Johns River water manage-
ment districts in conjunction with water
conservation professionals, the Bronze tier
recognizes owners of existing homes for
taking water-saving steps, such as installing
high-efficiency toilets and planting Florida-
friendly vegetation.
"Development of the Bronze tier opens an
already successful program to a new group
of homeowners interested in conserving
water while reducing their utility bills," said
SFWMD Executive Director Carol Ann We-
hle. "The entire Florida Water Star program
will play a vital role in fostering a lasting wa-
ter conservation ethic in South Florida."
Florida Water Star can be effectively in-
tegrated into building projects along with
other programs, such as the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency's ENERGY STAR,
the Florida Green Building Coalition's green
standards and the U.S. Green Building Coun-
cil's LEED program.
While many of these programs provide
general guidelines for water efficiency, Flori-


da Water Star specifically addresses uses rel-
evant to Florida, further enhancing effective-
ness of the other programs.
As part of the program, SFWMD water
conservation officers are training Florida
Water Star certifiers for all three residential
tiers.
The first Florida Water Star Residential
Certifier Training in South Florida was held
in October 2009 in West Palm Beach, and
16 of the trainees from that workshop sub-
sequently passed a three-hour exam on their
way to becoming official certifiers.
Another free two-day training workshop
is scheduled for June 10 and 11 at the SF-
WMD St. Cloud Field Office.
Attendees should be familiar with other
green building programs or have basic
knowledge of irrigation systems, landscape
design and/or indoor water use.
Introduction of Florida Water Star to South
Florida is a component of the SFWMD Com-
prehensive Water Conservation Program,
which encourages more responsible use of
water resources throughout the region. Nu-
merous stakeholders worked with the SFW-


MD to define specific regulatory, voluntary
and incentive-based programs and in-depth
education and marketing plans that will help
foster a year-round conservation ethic.

Conservation Program and water-saving
tips, please visit www.savewaterfl.com.
More information on Florida Water Star
is available at www.floridawaterstar.com.
Anyone interested in registering for the up-
coming certifier training workshop should
contact Jesus Rodriguez, SFWMD lead wa-
ter conservation officer, at jerodrig@sfwmd.
gov or 561-682-6060.

"Our calling is to be about the business of casting the net, fishing for people,
drawing others into this fellowship of Jesus Christ." Pastor Hicks.


Let's Go Fishing!
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Imagine a company whose president
decides to travel abroad. He is going to be
away an extended period of time.
So he says to his trusted employees,
"Look, I'm going away. And while I'm away,
I want you to pay close attention to the busi-
ness. You manage things while I'm away. I
will write you regularly. When I do, I'll tell
you what you should do until I return."
Everyone agrees. The president leaves for
a couple of years, but he writes often with
instructions for how his business should
be conducted. Finally he returns. As he ap-
proaches the front door of the company he
immediately notices the flower beds are
full of weeds, one of the windows across
the front of the building is boarded up, and
the receptionist at the front desk is sound
asleep.
When the president reviews the com-
pany's bottom line things are even worse.
The business has suffered huge losses. He
asks his employees, "What in the world is
going on?"
"What do you mean?" they ask.
"Well, look at this place! Didn't you get
any of my letters?"
"Letters? Oh, yeah sure, we got every one
of them," one of the employees replies. "As
a matter of fact, we have had letter study ev-
ery Friday night since you left. We have even
divided all the personnel into small groups
and discussed many of the things you wrote.
Some of those things were really interesting.
You'll be pleased to know that a few of us
have actually committed to memory some
of your sentences and paragraphs. One or
two memorized an entire letter or two! Great
stuff in those letters!"
"Okay, okay you got my letters," says the
exasperated president, "you studied them
and meditated on them, discussed and
even memorized them. But what did you do
about them?"
Silence, then a slow response: "Do? Uh-
we didn't do anything about them."
Jesus said, "Follow Me, and I will make
you become fishers of men."
Followers of Christ have been fishing for
people ever since. Or have we? Is a person a
fisherman if year after year he or she never
catches a fish? Studying and talking about
fishing is important, but fishing is the pur-
pose. Our calling is to be about the business


of casting the net, fishing for people, drawing
others into this fellowship of Jesus Christ.
We're not called to simply be students
and supporters of Jesus, but participants in
His vision for the world.
We can read all about it and talk about it
all we want to, but the truth of the matter is,
we will never be a fisherman until we start
fishing. We've become good at studying and
talking about fishing, now let's go fishing!

Ascension Day
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
May 13 is celebrated as Ascension Day on
many church calendars. The Lord was re-
ported to have appeared after His resurrec-
tion "over a period of forty days (Acts 1:3)
and then was "taken up before their very
eyes (v. 9)."
The Lord had spent enough time with
those who were to follow; the disciples (fol-
lowers, students, learners) were to become
apostles (those who are sent), and lay the
foundations that would change the world.
What was given to us during those earthly
years was enough for us to find our destiny
and salvation. I was blessed to have grand-
parents around as I was growing during my
earlier years.
One of them used to read me Bible sto-
ries, tell me right from wrong, correct with
gentleness but firmness, tell me when it was
a good time to get out of sight. We'd play
checkers and she'd take me along to the de-
partment stores when she went shopping.
During those years there were tea rooms
in the better-known stores; we'd share des-
sert when the shopping was over. She "as-
cended" into Heaven when I was nine years
old; a tragic loss but in my life long enough
to have a profound influence.
I have reflected that she was here suf-
ficiently to guide me on the paths where I
have found myself; it was enough.
In God's plan, time is different than it is
for us. Psalm 90 reminds us "For a thousand
years in your sight are like a day that has just
gone by...(v. 4)" and that the "length of our
days quickly pass, and we fly away (v. 10)"
-so we "might number our days aright, that
we may gain a heart of wisdom (v 12)."
The lesson is that we are given enough
by God; and it is up to us to apply it. I believe
that it is in this way that we "ascend" with
those who have set us on a right path; and


we honor them by building on their good
works. We become what God intends by
those who make us our best; more than we
might have otherwise become.
Likewise, we "ascend by helping those
entrusted to our care; who call upon us at
difficult times and helping them i- ..I
beyond what otherwise might have been
a lesser life. We ascend together; teaching,
supporting, loving, caring, showing others
our blessings and making them available to
those we touch and who touch us.
We live in a troubled world. Every place
one can turn, you will find all sorts of prob-
lems, difficulties, troubles, depravity, sick-
ness, sin. Then, there comes a moment
when it is possible to do something to make
a difference in somebody's life. Do I buy into
the tragedy and difficulty; or do I make a dif-
ference?
I cannot do everything but I can do some-
thing. That's how I ascend, how I follow the
Lord. With Him, I know that in His time, it
will be enough.

Parenting
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
Throughout the Bible the acceptance
or rejection of godly parental instruction is
treated as a matter of life and death for the
children (Exodus 20:12; Dueteronomy 5:16;
Ephesians 6:1-3). In the biblical model of
parenting, the parents stand under God's
authority and serve as His stewards in pass-
ing on His truth to their children. The Story
of Hanna (I Samuel 1:1) illustrates this dra-
matically.
Hannah could not have children for many
years, until the Lord answered her prayers
and gave her a son, Samuel. As a demonstra-
tion of her trust in the Lord and her thank-
fulness for His provision, Hannah entrusted
Samuel, when he was "old enough to eat,"
into the hands of the high priest Eli to as-
sist the priests in their service to the Lord (I
Samuel 1:24). Hannah understood that her
son belonged to the Lord from birth.
Generally, it is not good or necessary for
today's parents to surrender their children
wholesale into someone else's care as an act
of commitment to the Lord. It is good for to-
day's parents to recognize that their children
belong to God. As such, while their children
are young and extremely dependent, parents
are responsible to teach them how to trust
in God. As children age, parents must begin
to step out of the way of the Divine Parent.
The role of their restrictions, protection, and
affections in the child's life must diminish.
As the children mature through their teen
years to become fully independent and re-
sponsible adults, the parental role becomes
one of guidance and friendship.
Scripture also portrays parenting as
an activity with a goal. That goal is to cre-
ate and maintain an environment in which
God is the center of all thought and activi-
ties (Dueteronomy 6:4-25). In other words,
God is present (Acts 17:28) and demands to
receive glory (I Corinthians 10:31) in every
area of the child's life. Parents must work to
put God's truth into every sphere of daily life
in order to help their children develop a way
of thinking and life that constantly pleases
God.

Outage
Continued From Page 1
"It's like stepping back in time 100 years,"
the chief said.
His assistant chief, Kristine Petersen,
could be seen driving around town coor-
dinating a response, visiting with the local
Hendry County Sheriff's Office, requesting a
satellite phone from the county's emergency
agency, touching base with the local hospi-
tal, and so on.
"This is almost a replay," he said. "It's
scarily familiar to the last time."
He, of course, is referring to the 2008
event that happened after a farmer digging
on his property just west of Clewiston punc-
tured a fiber optic cable. Everything went
down then, too.

The response
Sgt. Chad Pelham drives through the
streets an hour after the outage was report-
ed. He talks about the situation and wonders
why, or how, such a large area as Clewiston
could be so quickly cut from its communica-
tion.
"It's scary," he says, strangely echoing the
concern of his chief without having heard
his supervisor use the same descriptor.
As he drives, the dispatcher calls in a pos-
sible abduction. A person was bound with
duct tape, beaten, and tossed into a red min-
ivan before it left the Twin Lakes area, the
dispatcher said. The caller, rather the flagger,
chased down a nearby deputy and told him
about it. She tried calling 911, but the system
was down.
Deputies and officers scoured the area,
and after about 15 minutes found the van
with many occupants inside, laughing. It
was a prank, and the person who saw it had
no way of knowing.
Still, it underscored the importance of be-
ing connected to the community, and what
not being connected means, exactly.
"I don't want to be the guy telling a kid's
parents that we couldn't find him because
911 was down," said Sgt. Pelham, replaying
the scenario under different circumstances.

The Cause


Barfield
Continued From Page 1

Organizing the event has been a project
close to Mr. Mazzina's heart. Having a bit of
experience in putting benefits together, the
former security industry businessman was
impacted when the three-year-old daughter
of one of his partners was diagnosed with
leukemia. He hasn't looked back since. He's
putting on a large fundraiser in Stuart on July
24, but he thought to himself, why not help
my fellow neighbor?
So his work, and that 50 of Mr. Barfield's
closest friends, resulted in the upcoming
event this Saturday at the lodge, with a sec-
ond location at Elks 5 Acre Field, both on
Francisco Street.
There will be no shortage of fun during
the event, which will include live music,
food, drinks, bounce house, raffles and


In the wake of the outage, few people
knew what had caused it.
Detective Julius Taylor, also known as
Hightower, smiled nervously on Monday.
"Usually, we have a plan for if the com-
puters go down, but I don't think we have a
contingency plan for when all of the phones
go down," he said, before adding his own
theory of what might have caused it. "It
might have been someone in their yard with
their little garden hose saying, what's that?
and then WHOOP! everything goes down."
Mr. Kennington-Korf, the next day, could
not say what had happened. Her point per-
son on matters like these, Ron Zimmerly,
had not heard about the outage at all. They
were called early on Tuesday.
Mr. Zimmerly said there was a planned
exercise by Hendry County Emergency Man-
agement, a drill, scheduled to happen the
same day and it was curious that an outage
would be reported at the same time -- the
outage was first reported at about 2 p.m. on
Monday, and services weren't restored un-
til 7:30 p.m. He asked if maybe this wasn't
what residents experienced.
If it was, police were not told.
It may have been a "miscommunication"
on the part of county officials, he said.
Hendry County Management, mean-
while, did not immediately return calls for
comment.
The next day, the chief of police reported
his findings.
The department received a report that a
couple of first graders were left at an area
school and a principal stayed with them un-
til the evening, but nothing else happened of
note, he said.
As far as what caused it?
"It appears they cut their own phone
line out there, CenturyLink," the chief said.
"They tried to complete the link so we'd
have a redundant line. I'm sure they didn't
intentionally do that."
Did the company, while working at keep-
ing its promise to never have the episode re-
peat itself, actually directly, but unknowingly
cause it to repeat itself?
Brian Hamman, a spokesperson for Cen-
turyLink, did not specifically confirm that.
Based off of information from the people
who were doing the repairs, Mr. Hamman
said the contractors, hired by CenturyLink,
struck the main communications line three


much more. The event starts at 11 a.m.
sharp, and will run, according to Mr. Bar-
field, until they're all sold out.
"It's going to be a big deal," said Mr. Bar-
field, who confided that he had about 1,500
tickets, with 500 of them already paid for.
Maybe for just a day, Mr. Barfield will
know that people care about him and will
put aside his concerns.
"The last thing you ever want to do is
bury one of your children," Allen speaks ear-
nestly. "It weighs on you and makes you do
a lot of soul-searching. It's like your children
are being punished for your sins."
The community can ease that worry, his
friend assures.
"It's just knowing that people are caring
for them, that you are actually concerned
about their well-being and family members
if unbelievable," he said. "They can just
come out and sit there and listen to the mu-
sic and have a cold drink. Having a shoulder
to lean on in times like this is larger than
money itself."


miles west of Clewiston, on U.S. 27.
This was a road-moving project and it
was a complete accident.
But it brought up a more positive angle,
Mr. Hamman said.
By the end of this month, work on imple-
menting a redundant system will be finished.
What this means, he said, is that a rupture
of this kind will no longer paralyze the city

because an alternative connection will take
over the minute that happens, with most
residents hard-pressed to notice a loss at all.
"It's unfortunate that this happened last
night," said Mr. Hamman. "Residents in
Clewiston, folks in the county government,
can feel very comfortable that we have a
plan in place to take care of this. It's already
underway."
