Child Struck by Vehicle Escapes without Harm


Tragedy averted
BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
On Oct. 26, a middle school student on his
way to school engaged in a little bit of horse-
playing with friends and inadvertently dove into
the path of an oncoming sedan near the area of
Sagamore and Olympia in Clewiston.
Aside from a slightly dented hood on the car, a

frightened child, shaken driver and relieved emer-
gency crews, the child seemed to suffer little, if
any injuries.
"He was goofing around and he ran out in
front of the car," Chief Don Gutshall, Clewiston
Police Department, said. "There's no way that the
driver could have avoided it."
Thankfully the car was not traveling at a high
rate of speed when the child, who may not have
been hit by the traveling car, but may have been
shocked by the sight of the approaching vehicle
and fallen on its hood.
It underscores the importance of following
speed limits, the chief explained.
"Had the car been going another five miles an
hour, it would have taken an additional four feet


The child was taken to the hospital, and was
expected to be okay.
He also commends the driver for not being on
the phone while driving. He hopes that more driv-
ers will do the same.
He hopes that parents will also talk to their
children about walking on the sidewalk and not
crossing the street except at designated cross-
walks and only when it is safe to do so. With the
incident having happened before school, the chief
encourages children to let the county's crossing
guards help them get to where they need to go.
"The county goes to great lengths to take care
of these kids," he said.
"And drivers, please be cognizant during those
school hours that you don't necessarily have to

Board

Harris beats Herrero

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
Al Perry handily defeated his opponent Dwight
Hatfield for a seat on the Hendry County Commis-
sion Tuesday night in the general election. Perry
collected 1,055 votes in the race, for 61 percent of
the vote, to Hatfield's 672 votes, which accounted
for 39 percent of votes cast in the race.
A clearly disappointed Dwight Hatfield said his
entry into the contest as a Democrat backfired.
Hatfield did not take part in the primary election,
having entered late in the race as a Democrat.
Had he run a Republican, Mr. Hatfield would have
been the fourth participant in a busy primary elec-
tion for the seat.
With a Democratic president facing decreas-
ing approval numbers throughout the country,
Democrats in all national and even local contests
prepared as some voters turned up to express
their disapproval in Washington.
"It's a bad time to be a Democrat," said Mr.
Hatfield. "It was a strategic mistake on my part
from day one when I did it, but it is what it is. The
people spoke and they obviously want Al to do
the job."
Shortly after the votes were tallied, Mr. Hatfield
called Mr. Perry to congratulate him.
For his part, the campaign experience is
enough to last Mr. Hatfield a lifetime. He won't be
making a return to the political stage, he said.
"I'm through politicking. It's very trying on a
lot of people around you and if you can't handle

So, after reading all of these "posts" I have
surmised that Spanish people are not welcome in
America's Sweetest Town? If you want to change
immigration, you basically have to rewrite history.
You can start with taking down the Statue of Lib-
erty, eradicating the INVITATION to ALL people to
come to America to prosper...
But, it is impossible to do either. The only thing
we can do as a nation is hope that the children
of Clewiston are not being taught such bigotry
and hatred. America was founded by a myriad of
nationalities, all bringing their languages to the
"melting pot" that is the UNITED STATES!

Under-living Our Due
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Many years ago,
Peter Deyneka was im-
migrating to America
on a long Atlantic voy
age with only a few
coins in his pocket.
When he got hungry,
he reached into a little
bag he'd brought with
him. He rationed the
contents of his meal
bag, eating the same
thing every meal
a few dry crusts of
bread washed down Pastor John
with water. When his Hicks
ship finally docked in
New York, Peter was
pretty hungry, not to mention pretty sick of bread
crusts. That's when he realized something that
he'd wished he had understood at the beginning
of the voyage: three full meals a day had been in
clouded in his fare.
Peter had been living at a much lower level
than he needed to live! He had no idea all the
good things he could have had and even was en
titled to with his ticket.
When God looks at us sailing through life, He
sees many of us living the same way under liv
ing, not realizing how we could be living and all
of the abundant wealth of good things we have
when we open our lives to Christ.
Imagine all the resources of God we can
download: His wisdom for our questions; His
power for our difficulties; His love for our lonely
times; and His peace for our troubled times. We
don't have to survive on a dried bread crust life
when we have all the resources of God at our
disposal!
One of the main ways these resources are
accessed is through prayer. Many times we un
der live because we under pray. Many times we
over worry and overwork and get overwhelmed
because we under pray.
To better access God's provision and power
for our situation and need, it helps to first focus
on our big, big God, not our big, big problem.
Then, we need to trust God for His provision.
Instead of just giving God our request list, let us
enter into His presence. It helps to put our praise
before our please and our worship before our re

quest. When we take a little time to celebrate the
awesomeness of our God, we start to access all
the great resources that come with our ticket. We
don't have to live the way we have been living. Let
us not wait until we reach our heavenly destina-
tion to realize how we could have been living all
along!
My prayer is the prayer of Paul in Philemon
1:6: "I .i i, o. .1 ,i ... / be active in sharing your
faith, so that you will have a full understanding of
every good thing we have in Christ."

be letters back and forth; probably trying to put
on paper their feelings and emotions; love and
loneliness, the pain of separation and the joy of
knowing someone is out there. At the end of it
all, "they had their problems too; they had their
heartaches and difficulties." Then I thought about
what carried them through faith. There were al-
ways possibilities that things might not work out
as planned; but that did not deter the generation
that laid the foundations for our own.
Other doors might open to new experiences
and new faces of life not yet dreamed about.
Thanksgiving was celebrated then, too; and so
was Christmas and each New Year brought a
new hope that things would be better. The faith
of other times did not betray the people who
lived through them. The final difference was not
circumstances but the values of the generations.
As Saint Paul so aptly put it "Faith-hope-love." I
have observed that each generation has its chal-
lenges and problems and it is our abiding values
that carry us through the hard times.
We forget that the difficulties of life were also
present in the first century, the Middle Ages, the
Reformation, the Industrial Age, the last century,
and are nothing new in our generation. Jesus
chose to celebrate His Thanksgiving in the midst
of the hard times of His worldly life breaking
bread with friends, promising He would be with
them, that He could be re-called and that His
will for us all would one day prevail (Matthew
26:17ff).
He gave His followers faith, hope, love; values
that carried them through they still can and will
do so for us, too.

SFWMD, FWC Let Woodpeckers Fly to Benefit Diversity of Wildlife


The birds are known as a I gfj


"keystone" species because
their nests attract other
wildlife

BY GABE MARGASAK
SFWMD
In an effort to boost diversity among South
Florida's wildlife, biologists last week released 10
red-cockaded woodpeckers at the DuPuis Man-
agement Area as part of a long-standing partner
ship between the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) and the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) to
build the population of these important birds.
"A healthy and diverse wildlife population is
integral to the function of South Florida's eco
systems," said SFWMD Governing Board mem-
ber Kevin Powers. "Abundant birds and other


animals are also a good indication of restoration
progress that benefits both the environment and
residents."
Designated as a Species of Special Concern,
red-cockaded woodpeckers and the nests they
construct play a vital role in the web of life in
southern pine forests. They are considered a
I. -i..... species by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife


Service (USFWS) because the cavities they peck
into pine trees are used by a host of other ani-
mals, contributing to the richness of species in
the pine forest. According to the USFWS, at least
27 species such as insects, birds, snakes, lizards,
squirrels and frogs have been documented using
woodpecker cavities.
Biologists secured the birds from the Apala-
chicola National Forest in the Florida Panhandle,
which features a large population of red-cockad-
ed woodpeckers. The woodpeckers were gently
transported to South Florida by truck in special
boxes and fed mealworms every hour.
Prior to their arrival, District staff prepared
new woodpecker homes in the DuPuis Manage-
ment Area, a 22,000-acre natural area located on
the border of Palm Beach and Martin counties
and open to public recreation throughout the
year. DuPuis was part of the historic Everglades
and features an ecologically diverse and signifi
cant', .-.I i community, along with abundant
wildlife.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


DuPuis once supported a red-cockaded wood-
pecker population, but the birds disappeared
many years ago because of changes to their habi-
tat. District staff has worked diligently to improve
the woodpecker habitat to the point where the
area can now support a sustainable population.
This work has included prescribed burning, veg
etation control and the installation of artificial cav
ity inserts in slash pine.
Each fall since 2006, the SFWMD and the FWC
have released 10 birds, five males and five fe
males, in wild areas such as DuPuis and the near
by J.W Corbett Wildlife Management Area. Pres
ently, there are 16 birds in the DuPuis population,
including two that :I. -I.'' I this year. Since 2006,
six birds have :. I..-, I from nests in DuPuis.
A bird that was introduced into DuPuis in 2007
was found as part of a breeding pair at Corbett
this year, bringing the population in that wildlife
management area to about 50. Biologists have
also documented approximately 80 breeding
pairs in the Big Cypress National Preserve.

Statewide Survey Shows That Libraries Give Excellent Returns


BY ERIC TOMMERDAHL
Library Director
The Haas Center for Business Research and
Economic Development has recently released the
results of a 2009 survey on the taxpayer return on
investment in Florida public libraries. The survey
looked at tax and economic data from each of
Florida's counties to determine amount of eco-
nomic benefit generated by libraries, both state-
wide and for each county individually.
The results are startling. For each dollar invest
ed in Hendry County libraries, they return $9.07 in
economic benefits. This makes them one of the
best investments around, and an important re-
source in Hendry County's economic picture.
Among the key benefits delivered by librar-


ies are access to government services for those
suffering in the current economy, access to edu-
cational resources for both adults and young
people, and free access to books and media that
people would otherwise have to buy.
In the last year, for example, an estimated
38,118 people visited the Clewiston Public Li
brary, which is only one of the three members of
the Hendry County Library Cooperative. Of these,
15,039 were there to use the computers, and an
estimated 6,015 were using those computers to
look for work and apply for benefits. Without
their library, those people would have to find
computer access somewhere else, or go without
entirely, greatly reducing their chances of finding
a job.
Of the 9,024 people who were using Clewis-


ton Library computers for some purpose other
than job hunting, a fair number were using them
to further their education, take courses, or help
with homework. In addition, these same people
were able to use the library's books, books on
CD, and DVDs for the same purpose.
Again, without the local library, these people
would have to pay for their computer access,
books, and other educational resources them-
selves, costing them much, much more than they
currently pay for library services. In many cases,
they simply wouldn't have access to education at
all.
In addition, Hendry County libraries offer free
access to books, books on CD, and DVDs. Each
year, tens of thousands of these items are checked


out to people around the county, absolutely free.
Again, if the library did not exist, these people
would have to p ., f. i. H., ifi i"..... .... other items
themselves, probably buying most of them from
online retailers like Amazon, and thus sending
their money out of the community.
By helping local people find jobs and govern-
ment benefits, by helping people get access to
education and retraining, and even by helping
people with their entertainment needs, Hendry
County's libraries play an important role in build
ing the local economy and helping Hendry Coun
ty weather the current economic crisis.
They are indeed one of the best investments
we have, and a major economic resource.


Clewiston Football Summary


BY DAVID SANKEY

It was a windy night at Cane field where the
Clewiston Tigers faced the Labelle Cowboys for
the annual Hendry County Championship. This
was an important district game for both teams,
as the district records were 2-1 for Clewiston and
1-2 for Labelle.
Turnovers determined the tide of the game.
A couple of short fields gave the Tigers early mo-
mentum, but Tiger errors later in the game kept
the game close. The Cowboys were only down
by 6 at the end of the third quarter. Labelle kept
pressure on the Tigers throughout the contest,
and only a turnover on downs late in the game


was the victory sealed for the Tigers.
Clewiston's Andre Rios was 2 for 6 with a
touchdown and an interception. Both passes
were to James Bigham. Virthavious Robinson
ran for 187 yards and a touchdown. Fred Wash-
ington had two touchdowns as well.
Labelle's 22 threw for 114 yards and two
touchdowns, also rushing for 11.
Their Chris Garcia ran 25 times for 51 yards
with a touchdown.

Soccer Team is Alford's "Beautiful Distraction"


Submitted Photo

The Haunting
Active Citizens for Children and the CPD Explorers teamed up to host a
haunted house this season. It was a tremendous success and lots of fun for
the community and good times for them. They scared up lots of fun! They
would like to thank contributors: MCM Paint, True Value Hardware, Pam's
Plumbing, Inc. Special thanks to Bill Houghteling and Chris Vary.


When Keri Alford encourages her Clewiston
High School girls soccer players to look at the
sport as their "beautiful distraction," they real-
ize exactly what she means. They know that she
wants them to love the sport like she does and to
see it as a healthy escape from the problems that
life will invariably throw their way.
Alford's players are also painfully aware of
why they are their coach's "beautiful distraction."
Last season, Alford was unable to fully devote
herself to the coaching and mentoring of her
players due to the illness of her daughter, born on
Oct. 14. Two and half months following her birth,
the precious infant passed away, leaving a gaping
hole in Alford's life.
"It's bittersweet for me to be out there again
this year," said Alford, now in her seventh year as
the varsity head coach. "I wasn't able to be out
there much last season, but when I was, soccer
was my relief and my sanctuary. I called my team
"my beautiful distraction," and if it weren't for
them, family, friends and my 4-year-old daughter,
the situation would have been unbearable."
Following Monday's first official game of the
season, a 1-0 loss at Glades Day, Alford said that
i,.., ,, squad has the potential to be as good if
not better than last year's team, which posted an
11-4-1 overall record.
"We can be better, but only if we really come
together as a team," she said. "We're not there


yet. Monday's loss was a disappointment. Our
keeper, Tina Autrey, made some great saves, but
we didn't do what we needed to do offensively.
"As far as this season is concerned, we have
the potential to advance out of our district. That's
our team goal because we've never made it out of
the district, even though we've been in position to
do so. But again, we'll only be successful doing
that if we grow 1. .**. I i. as a team."
Alford, who played soccer in high school,
competed with a travel team and played for four
years at Cumberland College (now the Univer
sity of Cumberland) in southeastern Kentucky,
said that she anticipates defense to be one of her
team's strengths this season.
"We have a weakness in the middle because
we're not handling and maintaining the ball well,
and we should be scoring up top, but we didn't
demonstrate that ability on Monday," she said. "I
think we can be strong on defense and offense if
we can put together the pieces that we lost from
last year's squad."
In addition to Autrey, Alford said a couple of
her key players this season will be juniors Erica
Hegley, Diana Hernandez and Adriana Rangel,
and seniors Sarah Howell and Brittany Bacallao.
Other team members include Lisa Walker,
Debbie Radcliffe, Leslie Almanza, Ana Gonzalez,
Kelsie Moore, Laura Romero, Brooke Flynn, Eliza-
beth Minero and Krista Gutierrez.

HRMC Foundation Receives Grant


A Great Season for Bass
and Locations for Crappies
Kept Secret

BY MARK KING

What a great week last week was fishing on
Lake Okeechobee, and this week should be even
better. The lake level is at 13.47 above sea level
and dropping pretty fast for this time of the year,
but we are supposed to get some rain this week
that might help. The bass have really started to
move in off the main lake and are staging outside
the traditional spawning areas like the East and
West Walls, Long Point, Monkey Box, and the
North Shore, just to name a few places. Some
really nice bass were caught by the guides and
clients this week out of Roland Martin's Marina.
The bite on artificial lures as well as on the
wild shiners continues to be good for bass and
did I mention that for those who like to fly fish,
we have plenty of bass to catch here on Lake
Okeechobee? Throw out a wild shiner under a
cork along the outside grass line and get ready to
get your arm broke. For shiner fishing for bass, I
like to use a heavy action rod, at least seven-foot
long and line no lighter than 20-pound test as you
will be fishing close to thick grass and reeds. For
artificial lure fishing, a Gambler Ace rigged Texas
style in junebug color pitched along the outside
grass line has been producing some nice bass.
And for those of you who like to flip, try a Gam-
bler Craw in any of the mats of grass from the
North Shore to Pelican Bay and I think you will be
pleasantly surprised as to what is under them.
I have also caught a few bass throwing a Spro
Aruka Shad lipless crankbait and a spinnerbait
on the shoal when the wind blows bait into the
grass, fishing the open water about a cast away
from the grass. If the wind blows too hard to fish
out on the main lake grass line than there are still
a good number of bass to be caught in the rim
canal and dynamite holes. I like to fish these ar-
eas with a shakey head rig that consists of a jig
head like the Gambler Giggy Head that I use with
a straight-tailed worm attached.
I like to use a sensitive rod like the one I helped
Deep South Fishing Rods develop that is available
in both spinning and -. i. .n,: versions. These
rods will help you fish a shakey head jig and feel
more bite but still has plenty of backbone to get
the big Okeechobee bass in the boat. Fish the
deeper dynamite holes and the opening from the
rim canal to the lake. This works well when the
wind is blowing and there is a ripple on the water.
The fly fishing also has been good this week with
good numbers being caught. The fly of the week
has been a .*i,,.1 -. i 1. .1 up out of foam.
The lake is in great shape with eel grass and
pepper grass growing everywhere along with
clean water in most areas. I think that this year
will be one awesome season for bass here on
Okeechobee. I know that there are a few crappies
being caught but everyone has been pretty tight-
lipped about where they are at. Until next week
good luck and fight lines.

Southwest Florida Community Founda Lynn
tion had chosen a "Naming Opportu
nity" as their method of Giving the Gift
of Good Health.
Along with her board of trustees, Julia desig-
nated $10,000 towards the reception/waiting area
of the Hendry Family Care Center, to be named
after the Southwest Florida Community Founda-
tion. The Hendry Family Care Center (adjacent to
the hospital) is dedicated to serving the health-
care needs of the entire family: infants, children
and adults. An area of this medical center will be
renovated in the near future to accommodate a
well-child waiting area, separating the sick chil-
dren from the well ones.

Election
Continued From Page 1

human beings," Mr. Hatfield said when asked
about his experience in running the campaign. "I
know the Lord's got something for me. That's all
that matters."
Perry will be taking over the seat held by Com-
missioner Kevin McCarthy. Mr. Perry did not im
mediately return calls for comment on this story.
On the LaBelle side of the county, incumbent
Darrell Harris easily secured a victory against
challenger Andy Herrero, Harris grabbing 1,062
votes to Herrero's 359.
Statewide, voters showed up to vote Marco
Rubio in as senator. Rubio, the Republican can-
didate, fought a long and hard campaign against
former Governor Charlie Crist, running as an in-
dependent, and Democrat Kendrick Meek. Rubio
collected more than half of all votes throughout
the state for the seat.

the state for the seat.
And as of press time Florida did not yet have
a new governor. Rick Scott, a Republican and
former CEO of Columbia HCA, participated in
one of the closer races of the night, with num-


bers being tallied late into Tuesday night and into
Wednesday morning, little telling of when the ac-
tual numbers would be finalized. His opponent,
former president of Florida operations at Bank of
America Alex Sink, tried to rally her democratic
contingency even as Scott seemed to enjoy a
slight lead.
Amendments:
Millions of Florida residents also cast their
votes on the various amendments featured on the
2010 General Election ballot. Voters had a lot of
information to sort through with i, ballot.
Among the amendments:
Amendment 4 Land Use, an amendment
which grabbed many headlines in the weeks
leading up to the election, was voted down by
the majority of voters. Had it been approved, the
amendment would have required voter approval
on comprehensive land-use plan changes in every
city and county in Florida. Proponents argued the
amendment was necessary to provide for smart,
controlled growth, while opponents said the mea-
sure would cost jobs and severely limit the state's
development opportunities and its economy.
Amendments 5 and 6 Legislative and Con-
gressional Redistricting, were approved by a large
majority of Florida voters. Through their votes,
Floridians said they would like to set non-political
standards for redistricting and reduce the gerry-
mandering of districts for political purposes.
Amendment 8 Public School Class Sizes, was
also rejected by voters. The approval would have
provided more flexibility to schools and a greater
level of control of teacher-student ratios. Support-
ers of the amendment said the current size limits
cost the state too much.
