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


Vol. 85, Number 54 50 cents


Deputies ask: Will you


sign for this please?


Arrest individual who
signed and received the
$6,000 marijuana delivery

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Jose Zamora doesn't live in an apart-
ment on West Aztec; Joshua Valdez does.
The little detail may not mean much to
most, but it certainly did to Hendry County
Sheriff's Officials who stood at the ready
while a package was delivered to the ad-
dress.
Their interest in the contents? Inside
was marijuana -- 3,867 grams of it.
The incident happened on July 2, at ap-
proximately 10 a.m.
Deputies were called in reference to a
suspicious mail package likely to contain
the illegal narcotic. It had been sent from
Texas and was addressed to a "Jose Zamo-
ra."
Deputies received the package and trav-
eled to the address, where according to the
arrest report, Valdez signed for the pack-
age.
The report notes that there were several


people inside the home at the time, includ-
ing a woman and her children.
According to the report, Valdez, agree-
ing to be interviewed in his kitchen, said he
knew that there was marijuana inside the
package, but he did not know how much
of it. He told deputies that he had agreed to
receive the package, and that it was to be
sent to the alias of Jose Zamora.
"Mr. Valdez told me that he was to re-
ceive the marijuana from a source of sup-
ply in Texas," writes the arresting officer.
"He expressed regret for being in the situ-
ation."
Deputies had the suspect open the con-
tent of the package, and tested the sub-
stance inside the package with a field test
kit -- which tested positive for the narcotic.
At an estimated street value of $700 to
$800 per pound of marijuana, according to
Lt. Susan Harrelle, Hendry County Sheriff's
Office spokesperson, the total value of the
package is upwards of $6,000.
Valdez was placed under arrest and
transported to the Hendry County Jail on
the charges of possession of marijuana
over 20 grams and smuggling marijuana
into the state of Florida.


Clewiston animal control encourages more local adoptions


Animal adoption encour-
aged since close of animal
clinic

By Stankeisha Burchell
Special to the Clewiston News
Just in the middle of peak pick-up sea-
son, the Animal Control division of Clewis-
ton is busier than ever-- space at the Arroyo
Avenue compound is diminishing.
Kathy Radcliffe is a 12-year veteran of
animal control.
"Between the months of May and Octo-
ber," she says, "we see a huge influx of ani-


mals, mainly due to the Christmas holiday
and the growing [residential] population."
Officer Radcliffe explains that many
families receive pets, mostly puppies, as
Christmas gifts. Many of them have grown
at an astonishing rate by summer and
families grow concerned about the size of
their new pet. They don't take into consid-
eration that when they buy a puppy, "its
not going to stay a puppy," she explains.
So when the puppy out grows the family,
"they just drop them off."
But it's not just puppies, however, freely
roaming the streets of Clewiston. It's not
even mostly puppies.
Ms. Radcliffe says, "We get more cats


than anything. Actually 20 cats per every
dog."
At an average of three litters per year
and four to six kittens in each litter, it is no
wonder why the city's animal control divi-
sion is overpopulated with cats.
"It is my suggestion that cat owners get
their pets spade and neutered. Cats over-
populate very quickly."
It is a common impression that animal
control agencies are a stray pets worse
nightmare. But the process by which the
animals are picked up is arguably more
humane than letting them run astray for
fear that they may be malnourished, dis-
eased, or worse, killed.


"When the animals are picked up, we
keep them [at the facility] for five days be-
fore they are euthanized."
Euthanasia is the painless killing of an
animal, which has a painful, incurable dis-
ease or incapacitating disorder.
"If they are adoptable," Radcliffe con-
tinues excitedly, "we get to keep them lon-

Letter to the Editor: Please, no barking, howling, crowing or cackling


Dear Editor,

I am addressing you rather than the City
because I feel the concern is important
enough for all of the community; that ad-
dressing this subject here (in public) might
educate the community of what could hap-
pen if the issue is not addressed appropri-
ately.
The issue concerns Sec. 14-4 of the City
Municipal Code, disturbing neighbors, dam-
aging property or creating unsanitary condi-
tions.
The code states that it is "unlawful for
any person to own, keep, house, stable or
maintain or have in custody any dog, cat,
horse or other animal or fowl which by re-
peated barking, howling, crowing, cackling,
or any other noises or by the destruction or
damage of property, or by being maintained
under unsanitary conditions, or by causing
objectionable flies and odors, all as may be
determined by the county health depart-


ment, creates a nuisance or disturbs the
peace, comfort and quiet or infringes on the
rights of adjoining neighbors."
Further, if such nuisance is not abated
within three days, the complainant shall
have the right to take out a warrant directed
to the person complained against for the vio-
lation of this section.
I've lived in Clewiston for nearly a year
and have experienced several residents who
do not follow this code.
This infringement became very appar-
ent this past July 4th weekend when I could
smell feathers burning from neighbors kill-
ing, plucking and cleaning chickens in their
back yard.
We have had several instances of finding
dead rats in our back yard which is adjacent
to a neighbor's chicken coop.
We experience an enormous amount of
flies and gnats and the odor on some days
is gut-wrenching, so much so that we can't
even sit on our porches due to the odor and
flies. In addition, the dog barks unremitting-


ly and loudly at all hours of the day and
night.
We moved to Clewiston because it is a
quiet and quaint small town. We didn't ex-
pect such basic living conditions right in our
back yard.
Hopefully, the good people of Clewiston
will realize that sometimes the way they live
might infringe on the peacefulness of their
neighbors.

Community United Methodist in Lake Harbor was the most recent victim of a lightning strike last week.


Noise startles pastor, but no
significant report of damage
at Lake Harbor church

By Toni Joseph
INI Florida
The Community Methodist Church in
Lake Harbor, located at 29 West Corkscrew
Blvd., was hit by lightning around lunch time
during a thunderstorm this past Wednes-
day.


"I was sitting at my desk at home, listen-
ing to the roar of thunder," said Pastor R.
Rod Ruby, who lives next door to the church,
"and saw this huge ball of fire leap onto the
roof of the church. I'm not easily spooked,
but that bolt of lightning and roaring thunder
shook me to my very bones. We never lost
electricity, but our phones did go out for a
while."
When the storm was over, Pastor Rod in-
spected the church.
The lightning had split the ceiling as
evidenced by wood that had fallen in the
church aisle; he also found that the air con-


ditioner cover had been "relocated" to the
front of the church, as well as an electrical
outlet "hanging by a wire."
"We were very lucky. Even with part
of the roof on the floor," said Pastor Rod,
"we've not detected water damage yet."
The Lake Harbor Community Methodist
Church is a small congregation with about
35 active members.
There was no air conditioning in the
church on Sunday, so the services were held
in their fellowship hall, which is adjacent to
the church.

Corps continues to adjust Lake 0 releases


Water levels watched to
maintain optimum capacity
In accordance with the 2008 Lake
Okeechobee Regulation Schedule (2008
LORS), the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville District, started adjusting water
releases from Lake Okeechobee on Sunday,
July 11.
The 12-day release has a target flow to
the St. Lucie Estuary, measured at St. Lucie
Lock and Dam (S-80), of 1,800 cubic feet per
second (cfs).
The new target flow to the Caloosa-
hatchee Estuary is 4,000 cfs.
Flows to the west will be measured at the
Moore Haven Lock and Dam (S-77), which is
located east of the previous measuring point,
the WP Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79).


The releases will be made
in pulses that resemble the
pattern of runoff resulting
from a natural rainfall event.
"Over the past 10 days, we
delivered reduced releases
to the St. Lucie and Caloo-
sahatchee estuaries 200 cfs
and 450 cfs, respectively, and 4
according to the 2008 LORS,"
said Lt. Col. Michael Kinard,
Jacksonville District Deputy
for South Florida.
"The reduced flows were
due to improved evapora-
tion/transpiration during the
month of June, dryer tributary conditions,
and predictions of less rainfall, even though
water levels in Lake Okeechobee remained
approximately a foot and a half above the


preferred level.
Recent rainfall
over the lake and
surrounding basins,
however, has raised
the lake level almost
six inches in one
week. The forecast is
for increased precipi-
tation.
These changes
have prompted us to
increase the releases
again to protect the
Herbert Hoover Dike,
free-up capacity for
more rain and potential tropical storms, and
to keep from having to make larger releases
later."
The Corps strives to maintain the lake be-


tween 12.5 and 15.5 NGVD. Normally, at the
beginning of the wet season, the lake level is
on a downward trend toward the lower end
of the management range.
This provides capacity in the lake for pre-
cipitation and basin runoff expected during
the wet season. System conditions are close-
ly monitored.
At this time, conditions are wet through-
out most of south Florida, and there is no
significant storage capacity available in other
area of the regional system.

flows data for Lake Okeechobee and the
Central and Southern Florida Project, visit

Site on Fisheating Creek provides history lesson


Submitted photo
"This stream is very tortuous, and sometimes swells into a river, and then dwin-
dles into a brook," wrote George Henry Preble in 1842 of navigating Fisheating
Creek.


In preparation for the Public Day that is
planned for Friday, July 16, from 10 a.m to
3 p.m. at Fort Center on Fisheating Creek, a
little backstory should be provided to show
just how important this site is to the history
of our community.
According to the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Commission web site, the first known settle-
ment occurred along the banks of Fisheating
Creek between 1,000 and 500 B.C.
The early inhabitants, known as the Belle
Glade people, began building mounds and
other earthworks and subsisted by netting
fish and harvesting turtles, snakes, and al-
ligators.
According to University of Florida arche-
ologist Jerald Milanich, who worked on the
area as a student in the 1960s, perforations
found on turtle shells indicate turtles were
tethered to be eaten as needed.
The creek was more than a source of
food and water.
It was also a canoe highway leading to
Lake Okeechobee and its resources to the
east and other settlements to the west.
The Fort Center site consists of mounds,
ponds, circular ditches, and linear embank-
ments built over at least 2,000 years.
William Sears, director of the excavation
and author of "Fort Center: An Archeologi-
cal Site in the Lake Okeechobee Basin," be-
lieves that corn pollen found in one of the
three overlapping basins indicates that the
Belle Glade people grew corn.
If true, Fort Center would be one of the
earliest, if not the earliest, example of agri-
culture in the pre-Columbian Eastern United
States.
Sears theorizes that people dug ditches to
drain the soil for corn, which will not grow
in wet soils, and that this practice may have
spread across the Caribbean or around the
Gulf from the lowlands of Mexico.
At the site, bundles of human remains
were found along with the remnants of a
wooden platform decorated with wooden
carvings of wildlife including life-size cats, a


bear, foxes, eagles, and wading birds.
Other objects were preserved in the
muck at the bottom of the pond including
a wooden carving of an otter running with a
fish in its mouth.
The site, listed in the National Register of
Historic Places, was still occupied, although
there was no evidence of agriculture, when
the Europeans arrived in the 16th and 17th
centuries.
During the Second Seminole War (1835-
1842), a cabbage palm palisade at the site
was named Fort Center for Lieutenant J.P.
Center.
Oscen Tustenuggee, who had organized
many war parties, and his two bothers Mic-
co Tustenuggee and Old Tustenuggee and
their wives lived in villages along the creek.
In 1842, George Henry Preble of the U.S.
Navy described the difficulties of a trip up
Fisheating Creek in a 30-foot cypress dugout
canoe named "Susan" after his sweetheart:
"This stream is very tortuous, and some-
times swells into a river, and then dwindles
into a brook."
The fort was reactivated at the start of
the Third Seminole War in 1855. Lieutenant
Henry Benson described Fort Center upon
his arrival in April 1855 as "more disagree-
able, unhealthy and devoid of interest than
I had expected ... Mosquitoes awful. 1 bil-
lion of them ... Hot-hot as fire all day." His
diary concludes with "the same in the same.
Killed two snakes."
At the conclusion of the Third Seminole
War in 1858, many Indians had been re-
moved from Florida.
In 1881, Clay MacCauley at the direction
of the federal government found 37 ex-
tended families living in 22 campsites in five
areas, one of which was Fisheating Creek.
By 1930, cultivation of sugar cane, cattle
ranching, and establishment of a refinery
at Moore Haven forced the remaining Semi-
noles to move from Fisheating Creek. Some
Seminoles went to work for cattle barron
Jacob Summerlin.


Much of the land surrounding the
creek came to be owned by the Lykes
Brothers.
The Lykes Empire began in the
1880s when Dr. Howell Tyson Lykes
began exporting cattle to Cuba.
All seven of his sons went into the
family cattle or shipping business,
and today Lykes Brothers Inc. is the
largest producer of cattle and the big-
gest meat packer in Florida.
Over the years the creek has been
the focal point in the lives of the lo-
cal people. They courted, married,
honeymooned, and baptized their
children there.
Along the banks they colored
and hid Easter eggs and celebrated
Thanksgiving. They depended on the
creek for subsistence and recreation,
hunting, fishing, and camping along
its banks.
The Lykes family prohibited de-
velopment along the creek and ran a
campground and a canoeing conces-
sion at Palmdale.
In 1989, the Lykes Brothers closed Fort
the creek to the public, igniting a 10- July
year legal battle.
On February 19, 1998, Circuit Court
Judge Charles Carlton ruled that Fisheating
Creek belonged to the people of Florida, al-
though the ordinary high water line, which
is used to determine the boundary between
public lands and private lands, had not been
determined.
Lykes Brothers appealed the decision. To
put an end to litigation, the parties agreed to
a settlement calling for the state of Florida to
purchase a corridor along the creek under
the auspices of the Conservation and Rec-
reation Lands (CARL) Program using funds
appropriated by the Florida Forever Act.
This land (18,272 acres) became Fisheat-
ing Creek WMA.
The settlement agreement has a number
of stipulations that determine recreational

Flood control maintained without raising tax rates


SFWMD staff to recommend
efficiencies, no change in
tax rate
Financial staff at the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD) will recom-
mend to the Governing Board this week that
ecosystem restoration and water manage-
ment operations serving 7.5 million resi-
dents can continue forward without raising
the agency's tax rates for residents from Or-
lando to the Keys.
"In uncertain economic times, the Dis-
trict must meet its responsibilities by operat-
ing as efficiently as possible," said SFWMD
Assistant Executive Director Tom Olliff.
"Through conservative fiscal and strategic
planning, next year's budget will meet flood
protection, water supply and environmental
restoration goals while reducing the taxes
paid by South Floridians."
If approved by the Governing Board at
its public meeting on Thursday, the millage
rate would become part of the proposed
$1.04 billion Fiscal Year 2011 budget (Oct. 1,
2010 September 30, 2011) that will once
again reflect a significant investment in the
environment and a commitment to fiscal
responsibility. The proposed budget is re-
viewed and finalized in September. The Dis-
trict tax rate has remained the same since
Fiscal Year 1998.
Included in the proposed budget is a host
of funded projects to benefit restoration and

The primary goal of Hendry Regional
Corporate Health is to improve your
health and make you feel better in every
possible way.
Thanks to donations from the commu-
nity and a grant from the Lake Okeecho-
bee Rural Health Network, Inc. (LORHN),
Hendry Regional is able to offer free well-
ness education classes to the community,
such as diabetes and tobacco cessation.
LORHN was established in 1994 as a
non-profit corporation designed to pro-
vide for the special and specific needs of
the residents, visitors, and businesses in
the Lake Okeechobee area; with extend-
ed services to Glades, Hendry, Okeecho-
bee, Western Martin, and Western Palm
Beach counties.
Toni Pavey-McDaniel, Director of Cor-
porate Health Services, 203 S. Gloria
Street, Clewiston, commented that insur-
ance companies can, and have, charged
participants as much as $1,000 for the
diabetes classes.
"Because our community cannot af-
ford those kinds of charges, I looked for
a way to offer the classes free," said Ms.
Pavey-McDaniel.
The diabetes education class -- which
is offered in both English and Spanish -- is
taught by Sherry Hooker, RN, and given


enhance flood control operations including:
$15.9 million for continued construc-
tion of the C-111 Spreader Canal to restore
Florida Bay and the Everglades
*$11.7 million for ongoing construction
of the Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treat-
ment Area, which is transforming ranchland
north of Lake Okeechobee into a wetland
to remove phosphorus before it reaches the
lake
$60 million for operations and mainte-
nance of 2,600 miles of canals and levees
The proposed budget also reflects an ap-
proximately $61 million reduction in prop-
erty tax revenues, in comparison with the
current year.
"The District consistently takes a fiscally
conservative approach to budgeting, which
enables the agency to meet its core func-
tions even during periods of economic
downturns," said SFWMD Budget Director
Mike Smykowski.
"A variety of cost-cutting measures over
the years constantly reassessing operat-
ing costs and proposed projects ensure
that every taxpayer dollar goes directly to
support our mission."
From Fiscal Year 2008 to Fiscal Year 2010,
the District achieved more than $10.8 mil-
lion in savings by reducing costs for fleet
management, training, travel, energy use
and other operations.
The District's annual budget is funded
by a combination of ad valorem (property)
taxes and other sources, such as federal,


once a month for two evenings.
Ms. Hooker educates the participants
on the difference between Type 1 and
Type 2 diabetes, how to control diabetes,
and how diabetes affects cholesterol and
high blood diabetes.
The next diabetes education class will
be held Wednesday and Thursday, July
21 and 22, from 6 to 8 p.m. at the center
in Clewiston.
Seating is limited; no physician refer-
ral is required. Call Toni or Sherry at 863-
983-9121 to reserve your place.

state and local revenue; licenses; permit
fees; grants; agricultural taxes; investment
income and bond proceeds.
The proposed tax rates represent 62.4
cents per thousand dollars of value in 15 of
the District's 16 counties (the Okeechobee
Basin). For example, a home with a tax-
able value of $200,000 (assessed value of
$250,000, less the $50,000 homestead ex-
emption) would see a total District tax bill
of $124.80.
For Collier County and mainland Monroe


County (the Big Cypress Basin), the tax rates
represent 48.14 cents per thousand dollars.
A similar home in this region would see a
tax bill of $96.28.
The District's nine-member Governing
Board will consider the staff's recommenda-
tion on millage rates at its business meeting
on Thursday, July 15.
The meeting will be held at the District's
headquarters at 3301 Gun Club Road, West
Palm Beach, FL 33406.

Summer meals for children through August 31


Summer food service program
active in Clewiston

Just as learning does not end when
school lets out, neither does a child's need
for good nutrition.
The Summer Food Service Program
(SFSP) provides free, nutritious meals and
snacks to help children in low-income ar-
eas get the nutrition they need to learn, play,
and grow, throughout the summer months
when they are out of school.


The Food and Nutrition Service, a federal
agency of the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture, administers SFSP. Locally, SFSP is run
by approved sponsors, including school dis-
tricts, local government agencies, camps, or
private nonprofit organizations.
Sponsors provide free meals to a group
of children at a central site, such as a school
or a community center.
Current law defines such an area as one
in which one half or more of the children are
from households with income at or below
the eligibility level for free and reduced price


school meals, 185 percent of the federal
poverty guidelines.

Ladies Auxiliary to VFW Post 4185 Wins Awards


Linda Meier, President
Ladies Auxiliary VFW 4185

The Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) held
their Florida Convention in June. The Ladies
Auxiliary to VFW Post 4185 in Clewiston
was honored, for the 3rd year in a row, to
receive trophies for participation in National
programs and special projects: 1st place -
Youth Activities, 2nd place Cancer Aid &
Research, 2nd place Americanism, 2nd
place Voice of Democracy Essay Contest
and Outstanding Auxiliary President of the
Year.
A special project in Americanism was to
collect patriotic items, take them to a class
and have a veteran talk about the items and
what it means to be patriotic.
Jackie Hoopes, Auxiliary Patriotic In-
structor and Brandi McConniel, Auxiliary


Secretary and army veteran presented the
items to Karen Richardson's 5th grade class
at Central Elementary and the Auxiliary won
a trophy for this project.
The Ladies Auxiliary is very active, honor-
ing and serving our veterans, and their fami-
lies, volunteering in many community activi-
ties and working with other organizations,
youth groups and boys and girl scouts. They
teach and promote Americanism by work-
ing with teachers and offering scholarships,
working for legislation that benefit veterans
and dependents, and especially raising mon-
ey for Cancer Aid & Research.
Members visit veterans in the VA hospi-
tals and veterans and local residents in our
hospital and nursing home in Clewiston.
Members also volunteer to drive veterans to
appointments, help complete paperwork for
employment and benefits and offer support


to those in need. We volunteer because we
believe in the VFW motto "Honor the Dead
by Helping the Living".
Do you enjoy the freedoms our country's
veterans fought for through their military
service and do you want to thank them for
guaranteeing these rights?
Do you want to help needy veterans and
their dependents and help fight for legisla-
tion that will benefit them? Do you want
to help promote patriotism and encourage
young adults to take pride in being an Amer-
ican and want to support our troops?
Do you want to help our community? Do
you want to help raise money for cancer aid
and research? Do you enjoy making new
friends?


If so, please call 863-983-9748 and leave a
message. There are many benefits, including
Specified Disease Insurance for all Auxiliary
members at no additional cost and Cancer
Grants.

:ept legal holidays, at 3301 Gun Club Road, West Palm Beach, FL 33406 or
y telephone at (561) 686-8800 extension 6739.
The District's agency action as set forth in the Staff Reports shall become

ions 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 per-
mitting decision may petition for an administrative proceeding (hearing) un-
Jer 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

any documents received after 5:00 p.m. shall be filed as of 8:00 a.m. on 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-
nmnistrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 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-
Jress 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) Identificaton of the action being contested, including the permit
number, application number, District file number or any other SFWMD
identification number, if known.
(2) The name, address and telephone number of the pebtioner and pet-
tioner'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 petitioner received notice of the
SFWMD's decision.
(5) A statement of all disputed issues of material fact. If there are none,
the petition must so indicate.
(6) A concise statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including the specif-
ic facts the petitioner contends warrant reversal or modification of the
SFWMD's proposed action.
(7) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends
require reversal or modification of the SFWMD's proposed action.
8) If disp uted issues of material fact exist, the statement must also in-
cdude 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 petitioner wishes the SFWMD to take with respect to the
SFWMD's proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Distnct=s
acbtion 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
Z8-106.301, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
s designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a pebtion 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.

protection for several hours.
Talk to your healthcare provider before
applying any insect repellents on young chil-
dren.
Some of the more common diseases that
you can get from a tick bite include: Lyme
disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and
Tularemia.
Typically, Lyme disease is marked by a red
bump at the site of the tick bite, surrounded
by an expanding, bulls-eye patterned rash.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever symptoms
include red dots on the ankles and wrists.
Rocky Mountain spotted fever can be trans-
mitted by the American dog tick, while Lyme
disease can be carried by the black-legged
tick.
Remove an attached tick as soon as you
notice it. Watch for signs of illness such as
rash or fever, and see a health care provider
if these develop.
Remember that it can take up to 30 days
before you have symptoms of a tick related
disease. Your risk of acquiring a tick-borne
illness depends on many factors, including
where you live, what type of tick bit you, and
how long the tick was attached.
If you become ill after a tick bite, see your
health care provider.
According to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC), in Florida, there
were 554 cases of Lyme disease reported
from 1999 through 2008, which is an aver-
age 55 cases per year. Of these, 30% were
acquired in Florida while 70% were acquired
while the person was traveling in another
state or country.
Please keep this in mind as you go on
your summer vacations to other parts of the
country.
The number of cases usually occurs dur-
ing the summer months and peak in July,
though cases are typically reported in Flor-
ida year-round.

How to avoid ticks in the

summertime while still

enjoying the outdoors

Pat Dobbins
It's summertime and everyone will be
gardening, camping, hiking, or just playing
outdoors. These are all great summer ac-
tivities, but don't forget about the "creepy-
crawly" ticks that may be in the same envi-
ronment.
There are several things you can do to
help prevent tick bites and reduce your risk
of tick-borne disease.
After being in wooded areas, grassy areas,
or even after a summer picnic, you should
check your scalp and hair, behind the ears,
the neck and under the arms.
Usually ticks try to find a nice warm spot
to hide and latch onto to your skin, but some-
times they can choose the strangest places,
so check your whole body thoroughly.
Some ticks are small enough to crawl
into shoes or through socks, so when you
are hiking, or taking a stroll through wooded
areas, tuck your pants legs into your socks
so that they cannot crawl up the inside of
your pants.
Also, it's a good idea to wear light-colored
clothing, because it will help you spot any
ticks that may be crawling around looking
for a place to bite!
Before you go into your home, check
your clothing and your pets for ticks. Ticks
may be carried into the house on clothing
and pets and any ticks that are found should
be removed immediately.
For added protection, you can also use
an insect repellent with DEET, but please
always follow product instructions. Repel-
lents containing 20% or more DEET can be
applied to the skin, and can provide some

Eloquent Speech(Nothing to
do with words!)
Rev. Samuel S. Thomas, Ph. D. +
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Churches have all come to realize that
there is a need to speak in a language un-
derstood by the people to be served. Many
of the Churches that came into being in the
16th and 17th centuries were the first to re-
alize that to communicate, you have to be
understood.
I have attended
Church services
in languages that
I really didn't
know; I was edi-
fied but it was
not the same as if
I had been able to
fully participate.
I've learned
that in all of our
relationships,
communication-
language is im-
portant.
What I've also Rev. Thomas
come to realize is
that communica-
tion language, is more than words. How
many times have I heard someone say "But
you said" and complain that their words did
not agree with what they had done.
Other times, the response is "Well, I said
- but what I meant was" or "You didn't un-
derstand, I didn't really say that what I said
was" and they're off and running.
The problem is not a new one. The Lord
tells His followers "The secret of the King-
dom of God has been given to you but to
those on the outside they may ever be see-
ing but never perceiving, and ever hearing
but never understanding(Mark 4:11-12)."
Jesus used parables throughout His min-
istry. Parables are about a kind of communi-
cation that is thought of as analogies; telling
about something similar to the point of the
story. "The Kingdom of Heaven is like" or
"A certain man fell among thieves." I think
there is more to it than just that.
Parables are communicating through
actions. The people in the parables are not
lecturers or debaters; they are doers. The
truth of the parable comes through actions;
a prodigal son returns and is forgiven; there
is more joy over the lost sheep that is found
than the ninety-nine that are safe; a man
who searches his field for a great treasure.
The communication is in their actions and
we understand them far better than if we
had only received a lecture or a rule. So, too,
with our day-to-day communications; when
somebody comes to me and says "But he/
she said" I advise to "look at the actions that
you see."
When my ministry was devoted to sub-
stance abusers, I would hear all kinds of
stories, promises, assurances, rationales,
denials, excuses. The persons spoke most
eloquently by what they did, as we all do.
Not just individuals but groups, including
churches, speak most eloquently by what
they do moreso than by what they say, too.
The faithful have been admonished "Do
not merely listen to the word and so deceive


yourselves, do what it says (James 1:22),"
or "be ye doers of the word and not hearers
only, deceiving yourselves." Leaders, clergy
or lay need to consider the example they set.
When all of the sermons are given and
the speeches have finished, what has been
done? How have the words been translated
into actions?
That can be the most eloquent speech or
sermon of all.

Destroy the Destroyers!
Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The book of Revelation, which records
the closing events on this earth that are to
culminate in the return of Jesus, has been
of my interest.
I wrote my own commentary on the
book and have taught it several times in the
church and Bible Institutes.
One of the statements in it has become
a very special significance in the last very
few years, especially the Oil Spill in the Gulf.
The prophecy is recorded in the 11th Chap-
ter and is the closing statement of the 18th
verse. It reads, '"And shouldest destroy them
which destroy the earth."
We are tardily awakening to the shocking
truth that this is exactly what we are doing
with our advance technology on which we
have practically made a god to ourselves.
Everything is being poisoned; the earth, the
air, the streams and lakes, even the mighty
seas.
Likewise, plants and animals, including
ourselves.
Everything is being affected, even the
unborn. Remember what one of our drugs
did to the babes of Western Germany. Now
much else is becoming suspected concern-
ing its effect on the developing babe.
The Creator placed in the ocean a natu-
ral antiseptic to protect it from becoming a
stench.
We refer to the salt content, in addition
to this, certain creatures, as the shark, to dis-
pose of the dead bodies of the waters. Con-
tinued poisoning of the seas may not only
reduce the efficacy of the salt but may also
destroy the specially created life which feeds
on the carrion of the sea. Then what?
God breathed into the first man's nostrils
the breath of life and man became a living
soul. Men must still depend on breathing in
order to continue that life. However, con-
template what is now being done to the air
which we must breathe to live even for a few
minutes.
Residues from crop spraying, fertilizers,
bug killers, chemical additions to our feeds,
even to the foods fed to slaughter animals,
are now under investigation with question
marks over them as to the effects they may
have not only on animals themselves but to
those who consume them for food.
Unless and until such dangers are
checked and reversed, the conditions must
steadily worsen along with the increasing
danger to life and the environment.
The Creator seems to have given men
sufficient rope to hang himself, as the old
proverb expresses it.
Thus he is left with neither excuse nor
alibi for his attitudes and actions.


Being Neighborly
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
A Sunday school teacher was telling her
class the story of the Good Samaritan. In viv-
id detail, she told how the man was beaten,
robbed and left for dead. She then asked,
"If you saw a person lying on the roadside
all wounded and bleeding, what would you
do?"
One thoughtful little girl broke the silence,
"I think I'd throw up."
She was being honest.
There are many adults who would not
respond well to such situations.
In New York City, a mailman, shot by a
sniper, was ordered to leave a building lobby
because he was dripping blood.
In Oklahoma City, a woman gave birth
unexpectedly on a city sidewalk. Bystand-
ers turned their faces and ignored her. A taxi
driver looked, then sped away. A nearby ho-
tel refused to provide her a blanket.
In Dayton, Ohio, a dozen people saw a
woman drive her car into the Miami River.
They watched indifferently as the woman
climbed on the car's roof and screamed that
she couldn't swim. The woman drowned.
What has happened to us? These people
are our neighbors! One of our greatest con-
cerns should be that these aren't isolated in-
cidents. In the Scriptures, an expert in the law
asked Jesus how he should be neighborly.
His first question, however, was, "Teacher,
what must I do to inherit eternal life?"
Jesus responded, "What is written in the


Law? How do you read it?"
The expert answered: "Love the Lord
your God with all your heart and with all
your soul and with all your strength and with
all your mind"; and, "Love your neighbor as
yourself."
"You have answered correctly," Jesus re-
plied. "Do this and you will live."
But this expert in the law wanted "to jus-
tify himself" and so he asked Jesus, "Who is
my neighbor?"
In reply Jesus shared this story:
"A man was going down from Jerusa-
lem to Jericho, when he fell amongst rob-
bers. They stripped him, beat him, and went
away, leaving him half dead. A priest hap-
pened to be going down the same road.
When he saw the man, he passed by on the
other side. Likewise, a Levite, when he came
to the place and saw him, passed by on the
other side.
But when a Samaritan came by and saw
him, he took pity on him. The Samaritan
bandaged the man's wounds, pouring on oil
and wine. Then he put the man on his don-
key and took him to an inn to care for him.
The next day he took out two silver coins
and gave them to the innkeeper. 'Look after
him,' he said, 'and when I return, I will re-
imburse you for any extra expense you may
have.'
"Which of these three," Jesus asked, "do
you think was a neighbor to the man who
fell into the hands of robbers?"
The expert in the law replied, "The one
who had mercy on him."
Jesus told him, "Go and do likewise."

If one was interested in adopting, the ani-

Hendry County voters may sign up for vote by mail


Has an Election Day ever slipped up on
you?
Did you ever have a family problem or
something at work that kept you from get-
ting to the polls before they closed at 7
o'clock?
Are you usually in too much of a hurry
when you go downtown to take advantage
of Early Voting in person at the Elections Of-
fice in either LaBelle or Clewiston?
Signing up for Vote By Mail can be the so-
lution to problems that may have kept you
from voting in the past.
Hendry County Democratic Chairman
Joe Thomas said, "Vote By Mail is really the


old absentee ballot made easy. Voters no
longer have to swear they will be out of the
county or sick in bed in order to get an ab-
sentee ballot.
All the voter has to do is request a bal-
lot from the Elections Office no later than six
days before the election."
Thomas added that Hendry County Su-
pervisor of Elections Lucretia Perkins says
the request can be for just the current elec-
tion or for every election through the next
General Election.
Hendry County voters can check their
current registration status online.
Thomas said the web link is http://regis-


tration.elections.myflorida.com/.
This website can also take the voter to
another site to request an early ballot.
Voters can also check their status in per-
son by going to the Elections Office at either
the Courthouse in LaBelle or the Clewiston
Satellite Elections Office at 100 East El Paso
Avenue with photo identification and proof
of residence address.
Pick up your telephone if you don't have
a computer or have trouble getting to the
Elections Offices during normal business
hours.
Then, call 863-675-5230 if you live in La-
Belle or 863-983-1592 if you live in Clewis-


ton; the Elections Office will take your in-
formation over the phone and make certain
your ballot is mailed to you in plenty of time
for it to be returned by 7 o'clock on Election
Day.
