Local guide

leads vets

on Lake 0
Shepard, PA company
teach "wounded warriors"
to fish
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
It is 6 a.m. in the morning, on the rim
of the boat ramp in Clewiston, and Mark
Shepard is going on like an old friend. He's
pulling his boat out into the orange lake
and making chit chat with a pair of vets
who have come down to Lake Okeecho-
bee for two days of fishing.
"You know what's funny is that my ex-
fiance lives ten miles from here," says Jake
Williams, one of the vets.
"Really? Oh that's a trip. You came all
across the United States to get within ten
miles of her!" answers Mark.
Shepard is the way that men like these
might want everyone to be: unassuming,
unreserved, but above all, funny. There
isn't an ounce of stiff address in Shepard's
sentences. To him, these are friends.
When Jake Williams wonders how
he'll manage the fishing rod -- he is miss-
ing his right hand -- Shepard comes in.
"I'm a left-handed guy so my setup will
work perfect with you," he says.
Jake smiles.
On this day, there isn't a cloud in the
sky, which everyone agrees isn't the opti-
mal fishing condition in the world. Shepard
takes the vets out to a distant point in the

Community

event set for

4th of July

Contests, events scheduled
for the Fourth of July
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
"Kids need to be proud of the country
they're in," says Mercedes Vary, a member
of the Active Citizens for Children group.
Established to keep local children en-
gaged throughout the year with positive
activities, Ms. Vary believes the Fourth of
July is a perfect time to entertain children,
and instill a love for their country in them.
So she and her group are heading up
this year's "Independence Day Celebra-
tion" at Sugarland Park. Last year's event
was marked by a strong showing of resi-
dents who came down to enjoy games,
activities and food.
The group is aiming for an even better
event this time around.
Kids will have no shortage of things to
do that day, from taking part in the games,
the sack races, while adults will certainly
enjoy the music, the dancing and the
food.
The event kicks off at 3 p.m., and ends
with a nice fireworks display at about 9
p.m.
In preparation for the event, residents
are encouraged to participate in a few
contests, including the storefront decora-
tion contest, pitting local business own-
ers in a battle of creativity, design and flair
for their country. Any business can join in

Why didn't I think of that?
Local welder extraordinaire Tim Davis thinks he's caught hold of a neat little design that more and more locals are
stopping him on the road to ask him about: a special truck cover. Made of the same material as a toolbox, and comple-
menting it perfectly, the improvised product seems to be taking a life of its own. Tim lost a loved one recently, and
hopes to get back to work to pass the time.

Enjoy Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail on Trails Day


The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jack-
sonville District invites the public to celebrate
National Trails Day, June 5, by visiting the
Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST).
Designated as part of the Florida National
Scenic Trail in 1993, the Lake Okeechobee
Scenic Trail is an approximately 110-mile
trail encircling Lake Okeechobee. More than
half of the trail is paved, and the remainder
consists of a two-track gravel roadway on
top of the 25-foot high Herbert Hoover Dike,
providing many scenic vistas for visitors to
enjoy while walking, hiking, rollerblading or
bicycling.
Horseback riding may also be enjoyed at
the base of Herbert Hoover Dike. Rest areas
and campsites are available along the LOST
for visitor convenience.
Access to the trail is free and may be
gained from any recreation area located
around the lake; however, visitors should


note that the LOST is closed from Port Maya-
ka South to South Bay and from South Bay
to Clewiston due to the ongoing rehabilita-
tion of Herbert Hoover Dike.
Access to the Pahokee marina will re-
main open, and so will access points to Lake
Okeechobee for localized foot traffic.
Closed portions of the trail are clearly
marked with signs and recreationists are
advised to follow posted instructions, use
caution at all times and refrain from entering
construction zones.
"One of the things our visitors enjoy the
most is observing the diverse wildlife, in-
cluding many threatened and endangered
species, that can be seen along the Lake
Okeechobee Scenic Trail," said Adam Tar-
plee, natural resources program manager.
"Among the species that call Lake
Okeechobee home are manatees and al-
ligators, which can be observed cruising


the lake bed and rim
canals. Bald eagles,
wood storks, snail and
swallow-tailed kites, ca-
racaras, American kes-
trels, anhinga and peli-
cans can be observed in
flight or nesting, and rac-
coons, bobcats, gopher
tortoises, Eastern Indigo
snakes, deer and turkey
can all be spotted in the
vast transitional wet-
lands along the lake's
shoreline."

Shoreline fishing license, no charge to locals


The shoreline fishing license for Florida
residents to catch saltwater fish from shore
or a structure affixed to shore cost $9 last
year, but this year, it's free beginning July 1.
The Florida Legislature repealed the
shoreline license fee during the past session.
However, legislators retained the license re-
quirement to prevent a more-costly federal
registration fee from taking effect in Florida.
Resident anglers who obtain the shore-


line license over the phone or Internet still
will have to pay a convenience fee to the
vendor.
The convenience fee is $2.31 for Internet
sales at www.fl.wildlifelicense.com or $3.33
for phone sales at 888-FISH FLORIDA (888-
347-4356).
Only Florida residents qualify for a no-
cost shoreline license, and the license does
not cover fishing from a boat or from land or


a structure accessible only by boat.
That requires a regular saltwater fishing
license: $17 for residents; for nonresidents
the cost is $17 for three days, $30 for seven
days or $47 per year.
There are some exemptions for license
requirements.
More information is available at MyFWC.

Florida-Friendly Landscaping Projects teach Water Conservation


Submitted photo
The butterfly garden in downtown
Okeechobee, shown at left, and the en-
trance to the Okeechobee High School
Agriculture Complex, below, are two
local examples of Florida-Friendly
Landscaping.
By Missie Barletto, South Florida
Water Management District
The South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) has enjoyed ongoing
partnerships with the Okeechobee County
School District and the Okeechobee County
Extension Office to share principles of water
conservation, water quality and agricultural
education with local adults and students.
Most recently, Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ing projects were installed at the Okeecho-
bee High School (OHS) Agriculture Complex
and in Flagler Park in downtown Okeecho-
bee. At area elementary schools, students
learned principles of sustainable gardening
in small places through a project named


"Wall of Plants."
The OHS project, funded by a $3,000
grant from the SFWMD, has raised student
awareness of water conservation principles
while bringing environmental benefits to the
landscape.
In downtown Okeechobee, a butterfly
garden now provides a restful spot to sit
and enjoy the day while watching butter-
flies enjoy the Florida-Friendly Landscaping.
Also made possible with grants from the SF-
WMD, the butterfly garden was sponsored
by Okeechobee Main Street and Waste
Management. It was designed and planted
by Okeechobee Master Gardeners and will
continue to be maintained by the Master
Gardeners and their 4-H Club friends.
"Florida-Friendly Landscaping" means
quality landscapes that conserve water,
protect the environment, are adaptable to
local conditions and are drought tolerant.
This type of landscaping includes planting
the right plant in the right place, efficient
watering, appropriate fertilization, mulch-
ing, attraction of wildlife, responsible man-
agement of yard pests, recycling yard waste,
reduction of stormwater runoff and water-
front protection. Additional components in-
clude practices such as landscape planning
and design, soils analysis, appropriate use of
solid waste compost, minimizing the use of
irrigation and proper maintenance.
In 2009, the Florida Legislature passed
a statute regarding water conservation and
Florida-Friendly Landscaping in 2009. This
statute states that Florida-Friendly Landscap-
ingTM contributes to the conservation, pro-
tection and restoration of water in an effort

ida in a manner that will supply adequate
and dependable supplies of water where
needed. Florida-Friendly LandscapingTM
is an essential part of water conservation
and water quality protection and restoration
planning.
The newly completed construction at
the OHS Agriculture Complex afforded a
perfect opportunity to bring attention to this
important state effort. Eucalyptus mulch do-
nated by 7L Brands LLC, a division of Lykes
Bros. Inc., provides weed control and soil
moisture regulation. Drought-tolerant, na-
tive plants purchased from Tree Locators
Inc. were utilized in the design. Cap Stone


Industries of Central Florida Inc. donated a
locally quarried, indigenous material known
as Callida Stone for natural walls and plant
borders. Rain barrels were added to an exist-
ing gutter and downspout system at the Ag-
riculture classroom building to collect water
for irrigating the landscape. High school ag-
riculture students, as well as staff from the
schools and the SFWMD, provided the labor
for the plant installation.
The project provides a real-life example
to Okeechobee County students and the
community at large that native plants are at-
tractive additions to any landscape. The proj-
ect is also an excellent demonstration that
planting right will help to conserve water.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


June 10, 2010




June 10, 2010 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee 7


In recent years, the greatest challenge facing the state legislature has been the budget. Indeed, the only constitutional requirement during each year's legislative session (which runs from March to May) is
to pass a balanced budget. That requirement was met, although the legislature relied on federal stimulus dollars and trust fund raids to do it. The $70 billion state budget included a $111 million increase
in funding to K-12 education, which comes out to a small increase of $1.22 per-student. After years of school funding cuts, education spending is still well below 2006-2007 levels.

The legislature balanced the budget partly on a $506.9 million raid from state trust funds, especially from the affordable housing and transportation trust funds. Some of these trust fund raids have since
been spared because of the Governor's recent vetoes -- although how the budget gap will now be filled is still an open question -- and the impact of these raids on existing projects is unknown. I opposed
these trust fund raids as a breach of contract between politicians and taxpayers who are promised that their taxes and user fees will go into a specific fund, only to see them diverted to
other parts of the budget.

On a more positive note, I am proud that several of my bills from this session were enacted into law. Among them:

SB 502 Special Investigators This bill allows prosecutors the flexibility to use special investigators from other agencies to help root out crime in our communities. Especially important in tough budget
times, this bill will allow State Attorneys to guide and coordinate important investigative matters without having to bear the financial burden of employing the investigators full-time on a
permanent basis.

SB 814 Lifeline This bill allows more cell phone companies to add Lifeline services. Lifeline is a public assistance program that reduces phone bills for people at
or below 150 percent of the federal poverty level.

SB 870 Statutes of Limitation This important legislation will help keep child molesters off our streets by removing the statute of limitations for sex crimes against children under the age of 16. Current
law forces children who have been victimized to report these crimes within 3 years after they turn 18. Studies have shown that it can take 15 years (and often longer) for victims to come forward,
as they are often silenced into shame and humiliation.

SB 874 Substantial Assistance This bill allows prosecutors broader authority to ask a court for a reduced sentence for a cooperating defendant. This will help our State Attorneys to
successfully prosecute the ring-leaders and "big fish" who direct major crimes yet escape punishment.

SB 1058 School Personnel This bill protects bus drivers and other educational personnel from dangerous students by notifying them when a student is charged with a felony. This is vital information for
any professional who supervises children and will protect fellow students as well.

SB 1284 Sex Offenders This bill creates 300 feet "safety zones" to keep sex offenders and predators away from places where children congregate. Sex offenders will also be restricted from
wearing certain holiday costumes and giving out candy on Halloween.

SB 1980 Ethics -This was the only ethics bill to pass in the legislative session. This allows counties to toughen the penalties for public corruption at the local level.

I'm also pleased to have co-sponsored a successful bill to help keep "pill mills" out of our communities. We have lost too many young people from prescription drug overdoses, and this bill will ensure that
Florida will no longer be the oxycodone supplier for the rest of the country.

Finally, the most contentious bill this session was Senate Bill 6. After receiving an overwhelming amount of phone calls and e-mails, Governor Crist made the right decision and vetoed
the bill. I was outspoken in my opposition to this bill, and you can watch my Senate floor speech at http://www.youtube.com/davearonberg.

I am grateful for the opportunity to serve you in the Florida Senate. If my staff or I can ever be of assistance to you, please call, write or e-mail us...or drop by to say hello!

"For I know the plans I have for you," declares the Lord. "Plans to prosper you
and not to harm you. Plans to give you a hope and a future."


Christian in a non-Christian
World
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Last year, our church purchased gift cards
for our graduating high school seniors, cus-
tomized with a picture of our church on the
card. They made nice connectional gifts to
our graduates from their church family.
Imagine my surprise this year when I sub-
mitted a picture of our church sign for the
cards and it was rejected as unsuitable be-
cause: "We can't accept religious symbols."
Imagine further surprise when I discovered I
could have a Star of David or a menorah put
on my card. When I asked the representa-
tive about such things, she replied that those
were not considered religious symbols. I
wonder if our Jewish brothers and sisters
know.
I must confess a myriad of emotions. I
struggled with feelings of discrimination,
feelings of anger and righteousness, and
thoughts of vigilante justice and retaliation.
What was I to do? I envisioned boycotts and
card cutting. I fired off letters of concern and
protest to company administrators.
Upon further reflection, I didn't know
whether I should have more concern over
that fact that our card picture was turned
down because our church sign was seen as
a religious symbol or that the picture of our
church wasn't seen as a religious symbol
when it was approved last year.
Because we are in the world, we have
temptation to get caught up in being of the
world and adopting worldly ways. There
is an old saying that a ship in the sea is no
problem, but when you get the sea into the
ship you are in trouble. A Christian living in
the world is one thing, but when the world
gets into the Christian that is a different mat-
ter altogether.
God has not set us to live our lives in iso-
lation or privacy. By divine appointment we
are members of a home, of a community,


and of a nation. To live as God intended us
to live we must fulfill our obligations in each
of these areas. As Christians, we always have
to stay on top of this part of our walk with
the Lord.
Some shut their doors to the darkness
around them. Others do formal protest
marches or boycotts. God has called me to
stand as a Christian in a non-Christian world.
I light the night for Christ on Halloween, pro-
claim the reason for the season at Christmas,
and have resurrection parties at Easter.
With these cards, I was lead to creatively
witness in the situation. I copied a picture
drawn for my by a friend featuring "Godly"
hands clasped in prayer around a baby. I in-
cluded a reference to Jeremiah 29:11: "For I
know the plans I have for you," declares the
Lord. "Plans to prosper you and not to harm
you. Plans to give you a hope and a future."
Following God's direction, the final result
was more spiritual and more meaningful
than any picture of our church sign.

Playing "God"; Is it our abili-
ties or our purposes?
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
A news item recently told about the cre-
ation of life in a laboratory. Apparently, sci-
entists have found a computer code, four
basic elements and the way of replacing
DNA in a cell to cause a cell to come to life
and multiply. They claim life has been cre-
ated and people now wonder if this is going
to create a new world of monsters, whether
we will finally be able to cure diseases that
now are beyond our capacities to cure, open
new doors ... .for better or for worse.
I recalled an older story about the man
who confronted God and said "God, I can
create life. Watch this!" The man stooped
over and picked up a handful of dirt and be-
gan to shuffle it about. God intervened and


said 'Ah Ah Ah! Get your own dirt!" We have
come to a place when computers do calcu-
lations beyond our imagination and robots
do surgery; when parents are working to
"engineer" the kinds of children they want,
when we have cloned animals to produce
replicas of their desired parents.
Claiming to create life is another step
along the way. The real question is "On the
way to where?" Nations can create atomic
weapons but treaties limit their production;
recognizing their potential for destruction
is too great. Gas warfare is seen as "hitting
below the belt" even in the worst of wars,
and banned by most of the civilized world.
Technologies are there, for good or evil, but
it takes something beyond the ability to cre-
ate or combine to decide whether humanity
really benefits from what we potentially can
do. In many ways, we can "play God" but
that doesn't make us gods.
Thousands of years ago, the Psalmist
put it succinctly; "What is man that you are
mindful of him or the son of man that you
care for him? You made him a little lower
than the heavenly beings and crowned him
with glory and honor, You made him ruler
over the works of your hands, you put every-
thing under his feet (Psalm 8; vss 4-6)" The
difference is not in what humanity can do,
but how what is done serves humanity and,
ultimately, God's purpose.
When we're playing god, the real need
is to see what we're doing and measure it
according to God's purposes for us. That
doesn't have to apply only to "modern" de-
velopments; it applies to all of us in our day-
to-day activities too. A mechanic, a teacher,
a parent, a delivery person all can use their
tasks in life to help or hurt others; each is
some way is capable of "playing god."
We all have in some way, no matter how
small it may seem, the power to "play god"
in our relationships with one another and in
the things we are called to do in this life. Our
call, big and small, is to recognize it; and do
the best we can to make this world a truly
"Godly" place.

Ready for marriage?
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
"There they go...Will they be happy?
Horns blowing, tin cans rattling, rice all over
the place, the newlyweds are "off in a cloud
of dust" on their honeymoon. This scene is
repeated a thousand times over during the
month of June. It's an exciting time as friends
stand and talk after the wedding. "Didn't she
look radiant!" "Isn't he good looking!" Small
talk, pleasant, but...the question that haunts
parents and friends is, "Will they be happy
together?"
Let's face it. Nobody can predict marriage
success with certainty, however, there are
definite, tangible factors which may mean
success or failure in marriage. Here are just
three questions that need to be asked by
couples considering marriage.
1.Did they grow up in a happy home?
Happiness in childhood helps to create the
kind of personality that can be happy and
successful in marriage. A youngster who has
grown up in an unhappy home may know
what he doesn't want, but he has no clear
concept, drawn by experience, for what he


does want in his own marriage.
2.Do they really know each other? Court-
ship is important because it gives time to
grow and mature. Courtship is actually a
time of innocent deception, when we are
always careful to make the best possible
impression. How does this person react to
criticism, hardship, disappointment? What
is his attitude toward Christ, other races, al-
cohol, drugs and sex. How does he handle
her moods, temper? What friends are im-
portant. These impressions need the test of
time--more than six dates in the moonlight.
3.Are they physically and emotionally
mature? Just because you are physically
mature.. and just because you may be in
love, does not mean that you are ready to
put aside boisterous freedom and irrespon-
sibility of adolescence. This is what we call
maturity. Physical maturity may be simple
enough to evaluate, but emotional maturity
if often tangible and elusive: ability to differ
without anger--not subject to moodiness or
tantrums--ability to accept advice and make
decisions--willingness to work and earn an
income--able to carry reasonable tension
without giving up--careful with money--abil-
ity to love unselfishly--devoted to parents but
not dependent upon them.
There are many other questions that
couples need to ask before getting married.
But these three are enough to demonstrate
the complexities of marriage. Every couple
considering marriage needs to sit down
with a counsellor that they both respect and
frankly face the issues that will come up in
their marriage.

What's life without GOALS?


By Michelle Milian
Two local Clewiston High School sopho-
mores, Diana Hernandez and Brenda Pru-
dencio are surely on "FIRE." They represent
the true meaning of a student athlete. In
the classroom they excel at the top of their
class, and on the field they're kicking some
grass. These girls are key players for Clewis-
ton High Schools Varsity Soccer team. Diana
Hernandez being Most Valuable Player for
her two years in High School states, "I love
soccer, it's not just a sport for me it's all I
know".
These two girls have not only excelled on
Clewiston High's field and academics but
they have taken it to another level. Practic-
ing every Tuesday and Thursday in Sunrise


with their club team has prepared them for
everything they have in store. June Sunrise
Fire, which is the club team's official name,
will be traveling to Oklahoma to fight for the
National Championship title. Brenda and
Diana both want to succeed in soccer and
hope to one day become professional soc-
cer players.
These girls have a great head on their
shoulders and with a Region A champion-
ship, state cup, and president cup under
their belt they are headed in the right di-
rection. The goals that Diana and Brenda
make on the field will only help lead them
to accomplishing their future goals. We wish
them luck and hope that Sunrise Fire can
BRING IT!

the Outstanding Junior 4-H Award plaque
with Brittney Harrell achieving the Outstand-

Sports Organization of the Week


Seminole Tribe Motocross appeals to Novices and experienced riders alike


CLEWISTON, Fla. (CSD) By his own ad-
mission, Jack Gorton was not all that familiar
with the sport of motocross eight years ago.
Now he operates Seminole Tribe Motocross
in Henry County, where 30,000 and 40,000
people came to participate in the sport dur-
ing recession-plagued 2009.
"To be honest, I didn't know much about
motocross until I was approached about it,"
said Gorton, who was the recreation direc-


tor for the Seminole Tribe for 20 years. "It's
a very interesting sport and it's an up-and-
coming sport."
In its seventh year of operation, Seminole
Tribe Motocross offers four different tracks
and caters to bikers of almost every age.
"People of all ages enjoy it, even the ones
who don't want to go too fast or jump too
high," Gorton said. "And it's not a sexu-
ally discriminating sport. We've got moms,


daughters, sisters and aunts out here."
Two of the tracks are one-half mile in
distance one a beginner's course and the
other a Pee Wee track. Both contain some
obstacles. The seven-eighths of a mile Su-
percross track features more obstacles 22
to be exact and less speed. Bikers go 20 to
40 feet in the air off the jumps, and a five-lap
moto on this track involves 110 jumps.
The main course, a 1.3-mile motocross
track, involves fewer obstacles but more
speed and higher elevations as much as
60 to 80 feet high. A total of 1,800 people
can sit in covered bleachers and watch the
action at this track, which for several years
was the site of qualifying for the prestigious
Loretta Lynn's Amateur National Motocross
Championships in Tennessee.
"This isn't like bowling where you have
an alley on many corners," Gorton said.
"There are only30-some motocross tracks in
Florida, so people come here from Naples,
West Palm Beach, Ft. Lauderdale, Ft. Myers
and elsewhere to ride and watch events."
Seminole Tribe Motocross, located inside
the Big Cypress Indian Reservation, is open
on Tuesday and Thursdays from 3 to 8 p.m.
and on Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m.


to 3 p.m. There is talk of installing lights at
the track soon. At least once a month, races
are conducted on a weekend, with competi-
tors divided into classes and trophies award-
ed to winners.
Gorton acknowledges that motocross is
not an inexpensive sport.
"You have to buy a dirt bike, of course,
and if you're going to take the sport seriously
and try to advance, you'll probably have two
bikes, one for practice and one for racing,"
he said. "You also need a helmet, gloves,
goggles and over-the-ankle boots, and some
people like to have chest protectors and oth-
er safety equipment. There are also practice
costs, entry fees for competitions and travel
expenses."
Motocross was introduced to the United
States in 1966, and the first stadium mo-
tocross event was held at the Los Angeles
Coliseum in 1972. A 125cc world champi-
onship was held in 1975, and by the 1980s,
Americans were winning international com-
petitions.

Seminole Tribe Motocross, which also of-
fers riding lessons, may visit www.semino-
letribemotocross.com.

The Districts agency action as set forth in the Staff Reports shall become
final unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sec-
:ons 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes before the deadline for fil-
ng a petition. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing are set forth
)elow, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the District's permit-
:ing decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) under
Sections 120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must
:ontain the information set forth below and must be filed (received) in the

iext regular business day. Filings by e-mail will not be accepted. A copy of
:he 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
)f 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-
ninistrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsecton 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.
The petitioner shall mail a copy of the petition to the applicant at the ad-
iress indicated above at the time of filing.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the District's action is
askedd must contain the information set forth in Rule 28-106.201(2), Fla. Ad-
min. Code, including:
'1) Identification of the action being contested, including the permit num-
5er, application number, District file number or any other SFWMD identifica-
ion number, if known.

:ioner's representative, if any.
'3) An explanation of how the petitioner's substantial interests will be af-
ected by the agency determination.
:4) A statement of when and how the petitioner received notice of the
;FWMD's decision.
5) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
he petition must so indicate.
6) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specific
acts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modficaton of the
FWMD's proposed action.
7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends re-
uire reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed action.

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
'8-106.301, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
s designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means
:hat the District's final action may be different from the position taken by it
n this notice.
The procedures for pursing mediation are set forth in Section 120.573 Fla.
;tats, and Rules 28-106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The
;FWMD is not proposing mediation for these agency actions under Secton
120.573. Fla. Stat. at this time.

The Real Estate cost

rim, which will very likely include personal property. At meetings held earlier
this year around the lake, he was unable to present a final plan for which
properties might be affected, and by how much.

Two face


attempted


murder charges kfrt ----
ANm msm


By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Two 17-year-olds, Xavier Navarro and
Miguel Angel Ortega, are facing attempted
murder charges for their alleged involve-
ment in a shooting in Clewiston.
Police officials searched for and located
the two teens moments after the incident.
According to the arrest report, the victim
in the case said he was driving his car near
the Fairgrounds Mobile Home Park at ap-
proximately 1:30 p.m. on May 27.
The suspects reportedly began talking,
and one of them made eye contact with the
victim before pulling a small handgun from
his waistband and pointing it at him.
The victim attempted to leave, accelerat-
ing as soon as he saw the gun, and heard
the rear window of the car shattering. The
suspects left the scene of the shooting.
In his report, Sgt. J. Spence writes that
information led them to the two suspects,
one of whom "was acting nervously, would
not make eye contact with me during direct
questioning, and was struggling to create a
fictitious account of his actions."
The other suspect refused to speak to of-
ficers, requesting an attorney.
Police searched the victim's car for a pro-
jectile, as well as the area from where the
suspects are said to have fired, but did not
find either, only what appeared to be an bul-
let entry point in one of the corners of the
rear windshield and an exit point where the
projectile shot clean through the car.
The suspects were transported to the
Hendry County Jail and then later to the Ju-
venile Assessment Center in Fort Myers.

lake, pushing the boat to 55 or 60 miles per
hour so the two men can enjoy the speed.
In between showing them the "Texas
Rig" or how to properly extract a hook
caught deep inside of a fish without using
pliers, Mark and the men talked about them-
selves.
Jake, of Vista, Ca., was in the Army, sent
to Iraq, until he was injured on his birthday
in 2007. Eight IEDs went off near him while
he pulled security for a colonel, and the blast
sent shrapnel flying everywhere.
"Pretty much blew open my neck, sev-
ered my hand, nearly almost killed me," he
said.
Since then, he has been a part of the
Wounded Warrior organization, which has
sent him on several outings, including meet-
ing famous golfers, having lunch with actors
from the television series "The Sopranos"
and snowboarding in Colorado.
Solution Matrix Inc., based in Pennsylva-
nia, thought they should do something for
the vets, too, and after an employee spent
some time out on Lake Okeechobee, it was
decided that few things could be more relax-
ing for the veterans than a couple of days on
the lake.
The company manufactures a cold


therapy product used
in hospitals, and has its
own veteran in its ranks.
The partnership with the
Wounded Warrior Project,
Bassonline.com and the
Florida Division of Fresh-
water Fisheries Manage-
ment just made sense. In
total, four fishing trips in
total were organized, with
a couple of vets coming
out for each of the trips.
Gary, of Ft. White,
Fla., was in the Navy, and
served in the Middle East.
He took part in Desert
Storm, Desert Shield, and
continued "all the way to
Iraq and Afghanistan."
There was a rescue
mission, but Gary is still
when he talks about it.
"Several of us got hurt. Jake Williams
I lost a friend," he said, be-
fore closing up, "I'd rather
not talk about it."
It took him nine months to learn to walk
again, he said, and it was only through phys-
ical therapy that he managed.
When he considers all that soldiers are
up against in the war, he is proud to know
he played his role, no matter the size of it.

, left, and Mark Shepard take a quick breather.


"I miss the guys. I know the guys are still
out there," he says and his voice is marked
by pensiveness. "My friends are still out
there. Fighting. I'm glad I was a part of it."
After the day was done, and long after
they had come back on land, Jake and Gary
were ready to return. After catching some-
where in the neighborhood of 30 or so fish,
the first of which was caught with the first
cast of the line, neither really wanted to
leave the lake.
"I tell you what, fishing is the best thera-
py for anything," said Mark Shepard. "Hope-
fully, this experience will bring some peace


to your lives and will give you something to
enjoy that will last you a lifetime."
The partner organizations also paid for
five-year fishing licenses for the veterans,
and the two said they would make great use
of it.
Gary, specifically, has it all planned out.
"I'll be planning a trip, coming back with
my boat," he said. "Mark can't hide that little
fishing hole from me. I was paying attention
on the way out there. I'm taking his fishing
hole, gonna practice, before you know it, I
might hit the circuit."


Gary Harris joined Mark Shepard on the Lake 0 outing.

decorating their storefronts with as imagi-
native creations as they can come up with,
with three prizes awarded to the top three
entries.
The city-sponsored event will award the
first place finisher with a $150 credit on their
utility bill, with second and third prizes re-
ceiving $75 and $50 credits. The contest
promises to be one of the most visible, and
closely watched.
Businesses must be decorated by June
28, and judging will be done on June 29.
Prize presentations will be made during the
Fourth of July event.
There will also be a "Most Patriotic
Wheels" contest, which will recognize
whatever bike, trike, wagon, stroller, roller
(anything on wheels) with the best patriotic

spirit. This event will be held on the Fourth,
as well, at 5 p.m.
Yet another event planned is the Little
Miss and Mr. Firecracker pageant. Children
up to the age of 10 are invited to participate
in the pageant, and will be judged on most
patriotic appearance and "their smiles."
This will be held at the Hendry County Fair-
grounds at 5 p.m. on July 3. A small $5 regis-
tration fee applies.
"The pageant was done before, when
the city ran the Fourth of July celebration,"
explained Ms. Vary. "This is a perfect oppor-
tunity for the kids to wear the red, white and
blue proudly."
For more information about the pageant,
or any of the events, contact the Clewiston
Chamber of Commerce at 863-983-7979.
Applications for the events and contests are
to be turned in at the chamber.
