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


Vol. 85, Number 60 50 cents


Perry punches

through primary

Prepares for Hatfield in
general election
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
Al Perry posted impressive numbers in
some precincts to secure a win in the Au-
gust primary election on Tuesday, despite
low voter turnout. It may have been the
heavy rains forming throughout the county
that kept voters at bay, but only 19 percent
showed up at the polls on Tuesday to vote
Mr. Perry the winner. Compared to the 2008
primary elections' voter turnout of nearly 32
percent, this year's number was low. In a
closely watched race for a seat on the Hen-
dry County commission, currently held by
Kevin McCarthy, four candidates were fea-
tured in Tuesday's election -- Al Perry, Laura
Smith and Ron Zimmerly.
Perry captured nearly 80 percent of the
vote at Clewiston's Youth Center polling lo-
cation, and 94 percent of the vote at the Hi-
Haven Baptist Church polling place, also in
Clewiston, to cinch the win. In total, Perry
received 60 percent of the vote, with 335
votes cast in his favor, compared to Smith's
22 percent, 123 votes, and Zimmerly's 18
percent, 99 votes.
"I am ecstatic. I really thought it was go-
ing to be close," said Mr. Perry. "Many peo-
ple asked me who's your biggest fear and I
told them that I don't know." He didn't take
any chances, he said in a telephone inter-
view with The Clewiston News following
the election. "I had been on the phone for
the past two days reminding people to go
and vote," he said. "I am humbled to see the
turn-out and support."
Other race to be featured in the Novem-
ber election include that for District 2 county

New jail units almost ready


Addition expected to ease
jail overcrowding

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
There were 220 inmates at the Hendry
County Jail in LaBelle last week. Of these
a few could still be seen scattered through-
out the cell areas, sleeping on small cots on
the floor -- a result of overcrowding that the
sheriff's office is looking forward to remedy-
ing later this year.
Opposite the existing facilities, which dis-
play the signs of antiquity already, such as
the faded paint on the walls and the dark
corridor-like lighting throughout -- though
having been constructed just a few decades


ago -- there is a modern addition. With the
capacity to house 96 additional inmates, jail
administrators are hoping that it will be just
the thing to relieve overcrowding, though
not completely eradicate it.
The new building is shaped like a stop
sign, split down the center into two units
with the ability to house 48 men each. In the
center there is a control room.
The new addition provides some modern
conveniences, because it is surprising to still
see jailers carrying a ring of large keys jin-
gling as the men lock or unlock cells and en-
tryways. Sometimes in the circular control
room in the various levels of the original jail,
the men push at buttons to allow further ac-
cess into the facility but the controls won't

Child tests

positive for

cocaine
Child's father: Mother may
have done drugs in front of
child
By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
A Clewiston woman was arrested when
her child tested positive for Cocaine, accord-
ing to the Collier County Sheriff's Office.
She was arrested by deputies in Immoka-
lee, charged with child abuse and contribut-
ing to the delinquency of a child.
Tasha Michelle Davidson, 30, according
to the father of the child, may have been us-
ing drugs recently and had the child present
with her when she did.
When they
caught up with Da-
vidson, at 2:30 a.m.
at the parking lot of
a local casino on
Aug. 18, deputies
said she was at-
tempting to find her
car keys because
the child was not
feeling well. The lit-
tle girl was running
a fever.
"I noticed that [name omitted] was not
her normal self, smiling and shy," the arrest
ing officer, who seems to have known the
little girl, wrote. She "was also sensitive to
light and would turn her head when I shined
my flashlight towards her face. I then picked
(girl) up to comfort her."
According to the deputy, the little girl
cried. A search of the car revealed no traces
of illegal narcotics.

everyone that the City offers a free service

That is a fancy way of saying that they will
provide a police escort for your business to

All you need to do is give them a call at
863-983-1474 and give them 45 minutes of
advanced notice.
Some tips to help you are to vary the
times you go to the bank, use different ve-
hicles to go the bank, take different routes
to the bank, and always conceal your bank
bag.

How to: Preventing and treating possible sports injuries


Pat Dobbins
Hendry/Glades Health Department


August means back to school and back
to school means that kids may participate
in sports. There are social and physical ben-
efits for your child when they participate in
sports however, it could also have a down-
side which is the risk of sports-related inju-
ries. According to a report by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), over
1.5 million children under 15 are treated an-
nually in emergency departments for sports-
related injuries.
Sports injuries can range from minor
scrapes and bruises to sprains, strains and
fractures. Stress fractures and tendinitis can
occur from overuse of muscles and tendons.
Some of these injuries don't always show up
on x rays, but they do cause pain and discom-
fort. Other sports-related injuries can include
heat-related illnesses such as dehydration,
heat exhaustion or heat stroke. Heat exhaus-
tion can cause nausea, dizziness, weakness,

Mary Kathryn Woodyard Sams
MOORE HAVEN Mary Kathryn Woodyard
Sams, of Moore Haven, passed away on Aug.
16, 2010, in Hendry Regional Medical Center in
Clewiston, following a lengthy illness.
She was born in Columbus, Ohio, Jan. 21,
1929, to Omar and Celia May (Bell) Woodyard.
She married Robert Jackie (Jack) Sams on Sept.
29, 1950, and became his widow in 2002.
A longtime resident of Dares Beach in Calvert
County, Md., she served as a substitute teacher
and school bus driver and held positions with
the U.S. Department of Agriculture as a crop
surveyor and poultry inspector. Mary initiated
adult literacy programs in both Calvert County,
Maryland and Glades County, Fla. Before her ill-
ness Mary was active in Glades County Histori-
cal Society, the First United Methodist Church of
Moore Haven, and the Moore Haven Chapter of
the Eastern Star.
Mary enjoyed reading and loved nature. She
loved gardening and was very fond of animals,
particularly horses and dogs.
Mary was predeceased by her parents, her
husband Jack, and a brother James. She is sur-
vived by three daughters, Kathryn Sams of
Wheaton, Md., Teresa Ann Stevens of Prince
Frederick, Md., and Joyce Halstead (William) of
Prince Frederick, Md.; a granddaughter, Saman-
tha Bruce (Jason); and great-grandsons, Riley
and Ethan, all of Walkersville, Md. She is sur-
vived by her nephew, Dean Woodyard of Co-
lumbus, Ohio.
Services officiated by Rev. Don Goodwin, Hos-
pice Chaplin were held on Aug. 23, 2010, in the
Akin-Davis Funeral Home in Clewiston. Inter-
ment was in Ortona Cemetery in Ortona.
The family requests that memorial contribu-
tions be made to Hope Hospice, 100 WC.
Owen Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
Arrangements were handled by Akin-Davis Fu-
neral Home Clewiston.


different sports present different risks:


spiration, normal or low body temperature,
weak pulse, dilated pupils, disorientation,
and fainting spells. Heat stroke can cause
headache, dizziness, confusion, and hot
dry skin, coma, and death. Heat injuries are
dangerous and can be fatal. Heat-related in-
juries are a particular problem for children
because they sweat less than adults and
require a higher core body temperature to
trigger sweating.

Injury prevention is the key:
Enroll your child in organized sports
through schools, community clubs, and rec-
reation areas that are properly maintained.
Coaches should be trained in first aid and
CPR, and should have a plan for respond-
ing to emergencies. Coaches should be well
trained to prevent, recognize, and provide
immediate care for athletic injuries and
should enforce rules on equipment use.
Make sure your child has, and con-
sistently uses, proper gear for a particular
sport. This may reduce the chances of be-
ing injured.
*Warm-ups and cool-downs should be
part of your child's routine before and after
sporting activities. Warm-up exercises, such
as stretching can help minimize the chance
of muscle strain during sports. Warm-up
exercises make the body's tissues warmer
and more flexible. Cool down exercises
loosen muscles that have tightened during
exercise.
Make sure your child has access to
water or a sports drink while playing. En-
courage them to drink frequently and stay
properly hydrated. Remember to include
sunscreen and a hat (when possible) to re-
duce the chance of sunburn.

Treatment
Sports-related injuries will vary by injury.
But if your child suffers a sprain, strain, or
bone injury, the best immediate treatment
is easy to remember: "R.I.C.E" but please
get professional treatment if any injury is
severe.
Treat Injuries with "RICE"
Rest: Reduce or stop using the injured
area for at least 48 hours. If you have a leg
injury, you may need to stay off of it com-
pletely.
Ice: Put an ice pack on the injured area
for 20 minutes at a time, four to eight times
per day. Use a cold pack, ice bag, or a plas-
tic bag filled with crushed ice that has been
wrapped in a towel.
Compression: Ask your child's doc-
tor about elastics wraps, air casts, special
boots, or splints that can be used to com-
press an injured ankle, knee, or wrist to re-
duce swelling.
Elevation: Keep the injured area elevat-
ed above the level of the heart to help de-
crease swelling. Use a pillow to help elevate
an injured limb.
As a parent, it is important for you to
encourage your children to be physically
active. It's also important to match your
child to the sport. You should be mindful
of the risks associated with different sports
and take important measures to reduce the
chance of injury. According to Patient Care

RELIGIOUS COLUMNS


Participating fully
in the world
Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston
There was a recent call for
medical students to consider
general practice once more.
One TV show mentioned a
man who had his right knee
replaced and returned to the
same surgeon when it was
time for the other knee. He
was told by the "expert" that
he only did right knees! He
referred to someone else to
perform the second inter-
vention even though he was,
no doubt, totally capable of
meeting the need. Ministers
are among those remaining
"generalists" in our age. If
they are capable of minister-
ing, they have to know a few
things about a lot of things;
(and know when they are
out of their field, too.) No-
body can preach a sermon
without knowing something
about the world that God
made; otherwise it would
simply be stringing Bible
verses together and hoping
for the best. Sermons, if they
have anything to do with our
lives, are a bridge between
eternal truths and the here-
and-now. This means know-
ing something of the lives
people live, the world God
has created and our place in
God's plan. The Lord called


fishermen, a tax collector,
a physician, a tent-maker.
Each brought his gifts to the
ministry he was to exercise.
Paul, the zealous Pharisee,
brings his zeal to the newly-
discovered Christ in his life.
Luke the physician brings
his compassion and gentle-
ness when you read and
compare his gospel. Peter
goes from vacillation and
change to the steadfast self-
discipline required of fisher-
men.
Each had gifts to bring;
each contributed to the fur-
thering of the kingdom of
God. Paul writes "I have be-
come all things to all men so
that by all possible means I
might save some.
I do this for the sake of
the gospel that I may share
in its blessings (1 Corinthians
9: 22-23)." It was the Lord


himself "who being in
the very nature of God...
taking on the nature of a
servant, being made in
human likeness... (Philip-
pians 2:6)" shared in the
world around him; talking
about weather, farming,
fishing, feeding, all of the
things that are very world-
ly indeed.
This is what the incar-
nation is all about; sharing
in the world God made
and immersing himself
fully in it. It is being in the
world but not of it that is
our call; both clergy and
laity.
When somebody seeks
to be a "specialist" they se-
riously limit what they can
and should do. We are com-
plex creatures (see 1 Corin-
thians 12:12ff), and live in a
complex society. To speak to
it requires an acquaintance
with where God has placed
us.
The blind men who ex-
amined an elephant each
believed they got it right.
It was like a snake to the
one who touched its tail; it
was like a wall to the one
who touched its side; it was
like a hose to the one who
touched its trunk.
Limited vision meant lim-
ited truth. Let's pray that our
leaders, religious and secu-
lar, have wide vision and can
see beyond their own lim-
ited views.


Second Chance
Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church
In the game of golf, a tru-
ly bad shot, a whack into the
water, a slice into the deep
woods, a ball that simply
disappears into thin air, can
be erased by a mulligan. A
mulligan is a gift of grace, a
second chance, a do-over
that is neither earned nor ex-
pected. A mulligan makes it
possible for a player to stay
in the game despite having
made a terrible mistake.
Unfortunately, conditions
of society have forced some
groups to do away with mul-
ligan thinking and adopt a
"zero tolerance" stance. But
sometimes zero tolerance
makes zero common sense.
Fourth grader Patrick took
some of his favorite Lego
toys to school to show off to
his buddies. Patrick's favorite
Lego toy was an inch-and-a-
half tall policeman figure,
armed with his own teeny-
tiny gun. That minuscule
piece of plastic succeeded
in getting Patrick kicked
out of school. It seems the
zero tolerance policy about
bringing weapons on school
grounds extended to include
that Lego toothpick-sized
armament. A zero tolerance
policy is what the synagogue
leader was advocating when
he became indignant be-


..- --. 4
cause Jesus healed a crippled
woman on the Sabbath. The
leader stated, "There are six
days for work. So come and
be healed on those days, not
on the Sabbath."
Charged with interpreting
the Tora, this official couldn't
see beyond the letter of the
law. No "work" on the Sab-
bath meant strict adherence
to every stated restriction.
In other words, the syna-
gogue official had come to
see the Sabbath as one gi-
ant "thou shalt not." Instead
of being a celebration of
the divine presence, Shab-
bat became a call to quar-
antine human activities and
confine the Spirit. In his ef-
fort to keep the Sabbath, he
had lost sight of what made
the Sabbath truly holy. Je-
sus wasn't concerned with
keeping Sabbath. Jesus was


concerned with making
Sabbath a living, vital ex-
I perience in the lives of His
followers.
He came to declare the
kingdom of God and the
kingdom of God doesn't
take a day off. God's pres-
ence doesn't pull back
from people every sev-
Senth day. The Sabbath
was established to enable
men and women a time to
intentionally seek out and
encounter the divine in ev-
* eryday life.
. By healing the crippled
woman on the Sabbath,
Jesus restored the es-
sence of "Sabbath shalom",
a peaceful Sabbath to her
twisted body. Healing this
woman was not a special
exception to Sabbath laws,
it was the incarnation of the
true Sabbath, bringing the
living kingdom of God into
the kingdoms of this world.
There is no zero tolerance
policy in Christianity because
Christ came to bring us all a
second chance. Christians
are "mulligan" people "-
men and women of faith
who have been granted the
ultimate in second chances
through the grace in Jesus
Christ.
We Chistian "mulligan-
eers," know that we must
pass the "mulligan" along.
We must offer the compas-
sion of a second chance to
everyone we meet.


Consistency
Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
1. A man argues with me for 30
minutes that is wrong to debate.
2. A lady told me that it doesn't
make any difference what a person
believes, then tried to enroll me in
a program to fight communism.


3. A father told me that he liked
to let his children make up their
own minds about going to church
services, but whipped them be-
cause they didn't want to go to
school.
4. A member argues with his
neighbor that the Christian Church
is right because it observes the
Lord's Supper every Sunday, but


he missed the next Sunday and
went fishing.
5. A family, figuring income tax-
es, showed a 10 percent deduction
as a contribution to the church,
and when the offering plate came
around on Sunday they dropped in
a total of one dollar and a dime.
6. A man, opening a fresh pack
of cigarettes, explained to me that


he didn't have enough money to
buy the family some badly needed
medicine.
7. An individual griped because
the sermon was too long, then
went out in the cold the next night
and spend three hours on the hard
bleachers watching a ball game.
8. A member didn't come to
services Sunday morning because


it looked like rain, and then waded
out to his neck in ice water the next
morning before dawn, duck hunt-
ing.
9. A man complained about the
way the country was being run
but then failed to vote on Election
Day. What is really needed today in
each of our lives is consistent living
for Jesus Christ!

Non-profit group LORI assists Hendry County


Amy McKown for IN I
Roger Harrison, Hendry County EDC; Phillip Bacon, Collins Center; Tuesday Tritt, Hendry County EDC; Janet Taylor,
Hendry County TDC; and Mali Gardner, Hendry County TDC gather for a check presentation by LORI to the county orga-
nizations for economic development.


Lake Okeechobee Regional
Initiative provides funds for
tourism/marketing director

The nonprofit Lake Okeechobee Region-
al Initiative (LORI) is assisting Hendry
County's efforts to boost tourism by
contributing to the salary for a marketing
and public relations director for the Hen-
dry County Tourist Development Council
(TDC) and Economic Development Council
(EDC).
With a down economy, the county is
looking for innovative ways to market its rich
outdoor resources and attract visitors who
can help the local economy. Hendry County
has a vast untapped market in eco-tourism
and agri-tourism and hopes to greatly ex-
pand its number of fishing and birding visi-
tors each year.
LORI, a program of the nonprofit Collins
Center for Public Policy Inc., is working to
build economies and communities along
the southern rim of Lake Okeechobee. Phil
Bacon, the Collins Center vice president in
charge of the LORI initiative, said this posi-
tion is critical to Hendry County reaching its
potential as a tourist destination.
"This position is extremely important as a
catalyst for bringing the region into focus as
a tourist destination,"
Bacon said. "This person will help us
brand the region."
With the eastern portion of the county
situated on scenic Lake Okeechobee, and
the north central and western portions bor-
dering the Caloosahatchee River, the county
is an outdoor enthusiast's dream. Lake
Okeechobee is visited by 6 million people a
year, and 14 million residents live within a
two-hour drive of the county.
The marketing and public relations direc-
tor will work to attract a larger percentage
of these visitors and residents for overnight


visits and events. In addition, the director
will capitalize on the connection between
tourism and economic development.
"You just can't deny the connection
between tourism and economic develop-
ment," said Roger Harrison, president and
CEO of the Hendry County EDC. "Tourists
bring money to our community bolstering
jobs in the hospitality and retail industry. A
tourist's dollar is turned over up to six times
in the local economy with little to no strain
on public services."
Additionally, Harrison said, it's a great way
to market Hendry County for new business.
"People see what we've got going here, and
want to turn their visit into a lifetime stay.
This commitment from LORI shows that
we're on the right track. Everyone is excited
about the immediate potential this change
will bring."
Just recently, LORI assisted efforts to land
Outdoor World Village on the northern rim
of Lake Okeechobee, a project expected to
help the economies of communities across
the entire region. LORI has also:
Helped develop awebsite and video as
part of a marketing plan to boost tourism.
Saved a bus line that ferries workers
between Clewiston and Belle Glade.
Begun plans to build a community gar-
den in one of the poorest sections of Belle
Glade.
Nudged the Florida Department of
Transportation to put high priority on im-
proving one of the state's
most dangerous intersections at State
Road 80 and U.S. 27.
Procured and distributed GIS data
maps to regional leaders showing infrastruc-
ture; land and water
resources; public facilities; and employ-
ment centers.
Brought a nationally recognized firm
to develop state-of-the-art demographic data
gathering techniques
related to census count.

Florida Highway Patrol cracks down on drunk driving


Troopers participate in
Over the limit, under arrest,
enforcement campaign.

Lieutenant Chris Miller
Florida Highway Patrol
The Florida Highway Patrol will partici-
pate in the national Drunk Driving. Over the
Limit. Under Arrest. campaign beginning
tomorrow through Labor Day. The Patrol
will join thousands of other law enforce-
ment and highway safety agencies across
the nation on Aug. 20 Sept. 6 to reduce
the number of impaired drivers on Florida's
roadways in an effort to save lives.
"Drunk driving is simply not worth the
risk. Not only do you risk killing yourself
or someone else, but also the trauma and
financial costs of a crash or an arrest for im-
paired driving can be significant," said FHP
Director, Colonel John Czernis. "Violators
often face jail time, the loss of their driver li-
cense, higher insurance rates, attorney fees,


time away from work and dozens of other
expenses. Do not take the chance. Remem-
ber, if you are over the limit, you can expect
to be under arrest."
The campaign encompasses the Labor
Day holiday weekend, which begins Sept. 3.
The holiday caps off the summer season for
many, and historically travel increases with
people driving to celebrate with friends and
family. In addition to the national enforce-
ment campaign, the Patrol will participate in
Operation C.A.R.E. (Combined Accident Re-
duction Effort) during the four-day holiday
weekend. The operation involves all 50 state
police and highway patrol organizations
across the United States.
All uniformed FHP personnel, including
those normally assigned to administrative
duties, will patrol interstates and other ma-
jor state roads during the four-day holiday
period. FHP Auxiliary and Reserve troopers
also will volunteer to augment the Patrol
this weekend. The Patrol aims to increase its
presence throughout Florida in an effort to
deter traffic violations and to enhance ser-

Rainy events over the course of the last week have brought plenty of rain to

gave way to beautiful sunsets in the early evening.

Unlike traditional cigarettes like these, e-cigarettes promise to altogether cut out nicotine from a smoker's life.


E-cigarettes deliver almost no nicotine.


By Jonathan Foulds,
MA, MAppSci, PhD

Hendry Regional Medi-
cal Center is offering 'Quit
Smoking Now' sessions -
each consisting of six FREE
smoking cessation classes.
In an effort to educate the
general public, the hospital
would like to share bits of in-
formation such as this article
about E-cigarettes and the
fact that they deliver almost
no nicotine. For more infor-
mation call Angelica Pena at
863-902-3019.
E-cigarettes continue to
create a lot of media buzz
and chatter among smok-
ers and smoking cessation
experts alike. Today, Profes-
sor Thomas Eissenberg of
Virginia Commonwealth
University published an im-
portant study demonstrat-
ing that E-cigarettes, despite
claims on the packaging and
advertising, deliver almost
no nicotine to the user.
The study is published in


the latest edition of the jour-
nal, Tobacco Control. Profes-
sor Eissenberg had 16 smok-
ers abstain overnight, then
come to the lab. on different
days and (a) smoke two of
their usual cigarettes (b)puff
on two unlit cigarettes or (c)
"smoke" 2 leading brands of
E-cigarette using their "high


nicotine" cartridge (16mg),
each brand on a separate oc-
casion. On each occasion he
measured the blood nicotine
levels before, during and up
to 45 minutes after using the
products.
As expected, the smokers
started off with very low nic-
otine blood levels (around


2 ng/ml) and went up to
around 17 and 20 ng/ml after
smoking the usual cigarettes.
However, when the smok-
ers used 2 E-cigarettes their
blood nicotine levels hardly
budged, peaking at 3.5 ng/
ml (i.e. not significantly dif-
ferent from before they used
the E-cigarette or puffing on


an unlit cigarette). Similarly,
unlike smoking real ciga-
rettes, the E-cigarettes did
not affect heart rate and had
a relatively small (but ob-
servable) effect of reducing
craving for a smoke.
What this suggests is that
regardless of how much
nicotine is supposed to be
contained in the E-cigarette
cartridge, almost none of it
is transferred via the vapor
and absorbed in the human
body. As I have previously
suggested, the E-cigarettes
appear to be a good idea,
with intuitive appeal, but
ultimately have the status of
a neat theatre prop which
mimics rather well the ap-
pearance of smoking.
Given that it delivers al-
most no nicotine, it follows
that the E-cigarette is unlike-
ly to be effective in reducing
nicotine withdrawal symp-
toms and helping addicted
smokers to quit in the long
run.
Although on initial use,


the smoker will likely get
some conditioned effects
(like Pavlov's dog salivating
on hearing the bell), after
repeated use it is likely the
smoker will learn that that
'something is missing", and
notice that it doesn't really
help with their withdrawal
symptoms and cravings (like
Pavlov's dogs salivate less
and less as the bell is rung
and no food appears).
I have no doubt that
some people will continue
to feel that they are 'getting
something" from the E-ciga-
rette and that it helps them
nonetheless.
And of course many
would prefer a product that
doesn't give them any nico-
tine.
However, the lack of nic-
otine delivery casts doubt on
this product's usefulness for
smoking cessation, and also
poses questions as to the ac-
curacy of the claims of those
who market the product.

Boy Scouts Newest Eagle Scout, Carleton Baucum


By Ray Worley
Chairman BLD GSC
BSA
The Big Lake District
of the Boy Scouts has
a new Eagle Scout. On
August 16, the eagle re-
view committee consist-
ing of Committee Chair-
man Judge William L.
Hendry, Big Lake Dis-
trict Chairman Ray Wor-
ley and Member David
Fox reviewed the work
that Eagle applicant
Carleton Baucum of
Clewiston 's Troop 619
had completed prior
to his review. Carleton
met with the committee
at the American Legion
Post 64 in Okeechobee
on Monday night. His
Scoutmaster Anthony
Chihocky accompanied
Carleton. Troop 619 is
sponsored by First Unit-
ed Methodist Church in
Clewiston. Their mem-
bers and the Citizens of
Clewiston are especially
proud of this young
man.
Carleton's proj-
ect:
I am going to su-
pervise the building of
ten Osprey platforms,
which will be donated
to the city of Clewiston.
Mr. Kevin McCarthy,
utilities director for the
city of Clewiston, will
provide guidance in the
planning of this project.
After researching differ-
ent types of Osprey plat-
forms on the Internet, I
decided on a fairly basic
design. Each completed
platform will be made of
pressure treated wood
and galvanized metals.

Eagle Review Committee Member David Fox, Committee Chairman Judge William L. Hen-
dry, Eagle Scout Carleton Baucum, Troop 619 Scoutmaster Anthony Chihocky and Big
Lake District Chairman Ray Worley.


They will measure three
feet by three feet (3'
X3'). They are designed
to fit at the top of tele-
phone poles and will
have braces to keep the
platforms sturdy under
the weight of the nest
or from swaying during
gale force winds. I will
build the first platform
beforehand so that ev-
eryone will have a visual
aid to follow. I will ask
some of my friends and
fellow scouts to help
complete the project
under my supervision.
Once the platforms are
completed, the city of
Clewiston will place
them at different loca-


tions throughout the
city. Carleton told the
committee that he saw
a problem and felt that
he needed to do some-
thing about it. Presently,
there are Osprey nesting
on power lines and light
poles that
provide lighting at
the ball fields. There are
only a couple of Osprey
nest platforms in the
community. Carleton's
solution would help the
community in several
ways.
Alternate nesting
platforms will:
*Increase the popu-
lation of ospreys, which
are native to our area


and are an indicator to
the well being of our
water habitat.
Potentially decrease
power outages in the
city of Clewiston thus
saving untold amounts
of money and risk to
power company em-
ployees.
*Benefit tourism
in Clewiston as the in-
crease in osprey popu-
lation brings more bird
watchers to our area.
Carleton provided
the committee some
very interesting in-
formation on the
number one benefi-
ciary of his project:
The Osprey (Pandion


haliaetus) is a large, fish-
eating hawk. The Os-
prey is federally protect-
ed by the Migratory Bird
Treaty Act (16 U.S.C.
703-712) and state pro-
tected by Chapter 68A
of the Florida Adminis-
trative Code. Because
of its position at the top
of the food chain, the
osprey is considered to
be an indicator' spe-
cies, whose health and
success directly reflects
the status of the overall
coastal environment.
The Ospreys nest in
Florida from about De-
cember to May. They
mate for life and are
very territorial, with


some pairs returning
to the same nest for de-
cades. An Osprey nest
can weigh several hun-
dred pounds. The large
stick nests are primarily
built on top of power
poles and irrigation
pumps near water. The
bulky nest often causes
power outages when
sticks interfere with
electrical equipment.
When Osprey nest be-
come large enough to
overlap two separate
power lines, short cir-
cuits are caused by rain
and other elements.
Also, the electrocution
potential is extreme for
Ospreys when building
new nest or perching
on power poles. This
is because the Osprey's
nearly 5-foot wingspan
can complete the cir-
cuit. Problems with
power outages can be-
come costly to the city
of Clewiston and the
power companies in-
volved. Because it is il-
legal to remove a nest,
power lines often have
to be rerouted. A good
thing about Ospreys is
they readily accept alter-
nate nesting platforms.
When asked what
he liked about Scout-
ing? Carleton replied,
"Camping at all the dif-
ferent places I was able
to go". When asked
what Scouting meant to
him? He replied," Boy
Scouts is something that
is very important to me
and I think that it is a
learning experience that
every kid should have
the right to participate
in". I know I wouldn't


be the same person I am
today had it not been
for Scouting and I am
highly grateful for what
it has done for me". Car-
leton is headed to South
Florida Community Col-
lege in Avon Park and
wants to become a Vet-
erinarian and practice in
Clewiston As a student
he excelled as a wres-
tler and worked for the
City of Clewiston as a
Life Guard at the City
pool. In reflection the
committee members
felt that the Scouting
Program had fulfilled its
obligation to Carleton
and Carleton would car-
ry the program forward
in everything he does
in his future. We were
glad to honor him with
his Eagle Badge. He will
continue to be a great
asset to his commu-
nity and his fellow citi-
zens in the future. The
Eagle Scout Projects
are a prime example
of how the Boy Scout
Program pays back the
community for all the
support the commu-
nity provides scouting
over the years. Support
the scouting program
in the Big Lake District.
Contact Chairman Ray
Worley at 863-447-1114
or email to rayworley@
gmail.com and ask how
you can help the youth
of the communities all
the way around our
lake. Don't forget to tell
Carleton Baucum if you
run into him thanks for
all he has done for our
communities. Volunteer
or contribute today.

Library continues used cell
phone drive

Eric Tommerdahl
Library Director
Most people in Clewiston probably have
used cell phones lying around the house.
When they get new cell phones, people often
don't know how to get rid of the old ones.
It's good to know, then, that there is a
place to take those old cell phones for safe
recycling, and in the process to help a good
cause. The Friends of the Clewiston Public Li-
brary are continuing the used cell phone drive


they started back in March. Anybody who has
old cell phones can bring them to the library,
where there is a collection box waiting for
them. When enough cell phones have been
gathered, the Friends send them off to help
raise funds to support library programs and
activities. To donate cell phones at the library
is absolutely free, too. There is no cost, nor
any time commitment except to bring those
old cell phones to the collection box inside
the building. All the Friends need right now
are cell phones and batteries. Chargers and
other accessories have no value, and the
Friends cannot make use of them.
For more information, please call Library
Director Eric Tommerdahl, at 863 983 1493.


A special thanks goes out to
the community

Jennifer Ezell
Turning Point Church of God
Turning Point Church of God would like
to thank Al and all the men that work at the
Montura Clubhouse for their help at the
Back-to-School give-a-way.
We would like to thank Central County
Water Management for the use of the Club-
house where we distributed the supplies.


We would also like to extend our thanks
to the Wal-Mart on Pine Island Road and the
Office Max on Pondella for their help with
the purchase of school supplies.
Lastly, we would like to thank the
Clewiston News for their help with getting
the word out to the community. We appreci-
ate your support.
With this combined effort, God was able
to reach almost 200 young children with
school supplies and next year we are hoping
God will help us to reach many more times
that.

Annual luncheon to welcome new teachers


Westside Warriors welcome back!


Westside Warriors wants to welcome
back all students and faculty to school this
year.
The 2010 to 2011 school year is start-
ing off with many great things such as the
excellent FCAT scores of the Warriors, as
well as the B the school earned falling only
4 points short of an A. So the bar has been
set and the Warriors are ready to battle for
that A!
The Warriors have also been put into
the "Fiesta" mood based off of the Reading
theme of the school this year. The school
has been colorfully decorated to energize


and motivate the students and staff as the
school year kicks off.
The Westside family also wants to wel-
come some very special members to the
school that we know will keep the mo-
mentum going.
In Kindergarten we have Brittany Barns,
First Grade Ginnie Anderson, Second Grade
Anna Jo Springfield, Third Grade Chelsea
Romica, Fifth Grade Kerry Alford, and our
new Principal Tony Busin.
We are excited to have our family grow
and know this is going to be a FANTASTIC
YEAR!

the Petition must also be mailed at the time of filing to the persons named
above at the address indicated. Failure to file a petition within the 21 days

ministrative determination (hearing) pursuant to Sections 120.569 and
120.57, Fla. Stat. as provided by Subsection 28-106.11(4) Fla. Admin. Code.

shall contain the same information as set forth above, as required by Rule
28-106.301, Fla. Admin. Code. Because the administrative hearing process
is designed to formulate final agency action, the filing of a petition means

Stats, and Rules 28-106.111 and 28-106.401-405 Fla. Admin. Code. The

Cocaine
Continued From Page 1


The father of the child pressed depu-
ties to transport the little girl to the hospital
because "he felt that there was something
wrong with (her)." Results from that exami-
nation showed that the child tested positive
for cocaine.
A search for the girl's mother led depu-
ties back to the Big Cypress Reservation. She
was transported back to Immokalee, where


she was placed under arrest.
Later, Davidson earned another charge
when, during the course of conducting a
property inventory at the Collier County Jail,
officials found 16 Flexoril pills. Because she
could not provide proof of a prescription,
she was charged with possession of certain
drugs without prescriptions.

ENGAGEMENT
DANIELLE LAZZARO &
RONNIE GRAYDON
anielle Lazzaro and Ronnie
Graydon are pleased to an-
nounce their engagement.
The bride-elect is from NewJersey,
now residing in Royal Palm Beach,
Florida. She is in the field of Sports
Medicine. The groom-elect is from
Pahokee, Florida and also resides
in Royal Palm Beach, Florida. He
is in the field of Education. Plans
are being made for a Wedding
on Friday, March 18, 2011, in
Palm Beach Gardens, Florida..


always engage.
Although the point at which the fiscal
pressures of meeting budget might be re-
lieved is uncertain, for those assigned to the
new units, life will be a little easier. A central
command of sorts operates the door locks
and offers views into every room.
Cells hold eight inmates at a time. Al-
though the number is somewhat more
swelled than what administrators had hoped
for, the economics of ordering four-men
cells just didn't make sense.
In the new additions, there are boxes
of things still to be opened, including two
large plasma televisions purchased, the jail
administrator explained, by inmates' fund-
raising efforts.
Other than the televisions, there aren't
too many conveniences for the inmates.
In each of these rooms eight beds are
welded to the wall at different heights, with
a single commode and shower in each of the
remaining two corners of the cells. The rest-


room is shared, with no room for privacy, of
course. The shower does have a curtain.
Fish-eye cameras are placed strategically
in the cells, feeding several video signals to
the main control room at any given time.
Outside of the shower and latrine areas,
there is little else that will escape the atten-
tion of jailers.
Jail administrators do not expect to have
to make further arrangements to accommo-
date a larger population of inmates, includ-
ing in the kitchen, which they say should be
sufficient to feed all inmates.
Hendry County Sheriff's Office personnel
are happy to near the date when inmates
might be moved in -- this might occur in
September, possibly. When that happens,
the sheriff's office will be rehabbing the
older cells in the main jail unit.
The jail recently did a test-run, moving its
20 or so female inmates temporarily to one
of the new units.

seat, which will feature incumbent Darrell
Harris and Andy Herrero. The city of Clewis-
ton skipped the election when its commis-
sioners agreed to their term limits -- they
were unopposed.
Joey Miller will serve a two-year term,
while Jimmy Pittman and Rick Miller will
serve four-year terms. It isn't over for Mr.


Perry, however. He will still be facing Dwight
Hatfield in the November 2 general election
for the seat on the county commission.
"I still have a lot of work to do though."
"I was warned by my family not to under-
estimate any opponent and so I didn't and I
still don't (in reference to the coming gen-
eral election)."


DUI sobriety checkpoint


A DUI sobriety checkpoint is scheduled
in Hendry County for the weekend of Au-
gust 28, 2010.
This operation will take place in an un-
disclosed location in Hendry County.
Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden
stated, "In our continued effort to protect
the citizens and visitors in Hendry County
we are committed to getting impaired driv-
ers off our roadways.
Additionally, we are in support of edu-
cation efforts such as the national 'Drunk
Driving. Over the Limit. Under Arrest' cam-


paign."
This checkpoint emphasis is placed on
the following:
1. Remove impaired drivers from the
roadway.
2. Heighten awareness.
3. Educate the public on the dangers of
drunk driving.
Various community partnerships, in-
cluding planned DUI sobriety checkpoints,
are established with the goal of education
and information for the public on traffic
safety issues.
