Father Threatens to Kill Local Principal


Lockdown at school, no
arrests made

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
According to the Hendry County Sheriff's Of
fice, a man threatened a local elementary princi-
pal's life last week after an incident involving the
suspect's child.




8 16510 00020 7


The man told George Duckstein, Central El-
ementary principal, he was on his way to kill him,
according to reports released by the sheriff's of
fice and the Clewiston Police Department. The
police department handled the call, before hand-
ing it over to the sheriff's office, but no arrests
were made in the case.
The incident was reported Nov. 11, at 1:30
p.m. Students were still in school when the initial
call was made to law enforcement.
According to the sheriff's office report, an is-
sue had resulted earlier in the day after a student
was found to be i.i .. .!. ."- 1.i I, touching anoth-
er student." The principal had one of the teachers
contact the father, a 47-year-old Montura man.
The teacher asked him if he wished for his son


to be sent home or receive corporal punishment
- a paddling. The report states that a "miscom-
munication" occurred between the teacher and
the father and that during the phone call the fa-
ther became irate.
After the first phone call, the principal report-
edly called him back, but said the parent was very
upset and said that no one was going to touch his
child. The principal said he told the father that his
child needed to be picked up.
Deputy J. Conyers, handling the investigation,
wrote that the father "at that point told Mr. Duck-
stein 1,. 1.i .!.i.,. ri .- .. 1 and that he was on his

Accreditation


Review

BY ROBERTO SANCHEZ
Clewiston High School
For the past sixty years, Clewiston High has
been an accredited school. Every five years, the
school goes through a review in order to de-
termine if it will continue to be an accredited
school.
On Nov. 8 and 9, Clewiston High School
hosted an accreditation review conducted by the
Southern Association of Colleges and Schools, or
SACS.
As mentioned before, every five years, SACS
evaluates the worthiness of schools to continue
to receive accreditation based on seven standards
that are crucial to the overall effectiveness of the
school.
A diverse team of five educators from around
the state, known as the Quality Assurance Review
team, or QAR team, carefully examined school
documents and reports, interviewed students,
teachers, support staff, school leaders, parents,
community members, and conducted classroom
observations, in order to determine whether or
not Clewiston High merited continuing being an
accredited school.
After two days of review, this team, led by Dr.
David Washington, concluded that CHS had met
all the criteria needed in order to continue to re
ceive accreditation by SACS.
Throughout the process, Dr. Washington and
his team were very much impressed by our com-
munity and our students. They took many differ
ent programs and practices that they found here
at CHS home with them.
In his exit report, given to the faculty and staff,
Dr. Washington encouraged the teachers of CHS
to continue to engage, inspire, and challenge ev
ery student, every day.
He and several of his team members even
joked that they'd be putting their homes up for
sale as soon as they got back so that they could

Don't be a Thanksgiving

Turkey
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Ive been
called a tur-
key before.
No one wants to
be a turkey. Being
called a turkey takes
on an even deeper
meaning when you
realize the fact that
commercially grown
turkey is not one of
nature's most intel-
ligent creatures. As
a matter of fact, the
domesticated turkey Pastor John Hicks
has been described
as being "as brain
less as a baseball."
Even drinking can put a strain on turkey intelli-
gence. If a turkey is outdoors, looking up at the
sky when it starts to rain, it can drown. They're
often not smart enough to close their mouths in
the rain. No one wants to be a turkey.
But at least the turkey has an excuse for be
ing "bird brained." There is less excuse for us
human beings. Take the nine lepers Luke writes
about in Luke 17. Jesus had healed them from a
disgusting, painful, and unsightly skin disease. It
was a tremendous gift; even more so in that Jesus
had made it possible for them to re enter society
and reunite with their families. Ten lepers were
healed, but only one leper, and a Samaritan at
that, came back and said, "Thanks."
Talk about turkeys! Ten received God's bless
ing, but only one stopped to say thanks.
What about us? Thanksgiving Day is here. In
which group will we be found? Amongst the nine
who took their blessing and walked off or with
the one who came back to thank God?
If we want to avoid being "turkeys" this
Thanksgiving, the behavior of that tenth leper
might prove instructive.


We are not meant to keep our blessings to
ourselves. "Thanks" is only half of the word. "Giv-
ing" is the other half.
We can make generous giving a part of our
thanks-giving. Remember, lin... we feed the
hungry, give drink to the thirsty, clothe the naked,
visit the sick or the prisoner, it's the same thing
as doing it for Jesus (Matthew 25:31). The tenth
leper may not have had much, but in his gratitude
he shared what he had to give.
This Thanksgiving, don't be a turkey. In Eng-
lish, the word "think" and the word "thank" both
come from the same root. Nine out of ten forgot
to think and forgot to thank God for their bless-
ings. But the tenth leper saw his blessings, gave
thanks for his blessings, and shared his blessings.
So can we.


hanksgiving is a thoroughly American
Holiday and a thoroughly religious one
as well. It was begun by early European
settlers to this continent as an act of devotion to
the God whom they loved and who they believed
had provided for them through difficult times.
In recent times, however, the Holiday has
fallen on hard times, as our country has turned
more and more away from the God our Puritan
forefathers loved and worshiped. The Pilgrims are
characterized today as political dissenters who are
lauded for their bold break with a repressive polit-
ical regime in England. But their Christian founda-
tions and their desire to seek a place where they
could worship the God of the Bible are almost
totally ignored by textbooks and removed by law
from the attention of the American people. We
are being sold a politically correct bill of goods.
The truth is that the Pilgrims and many of the
other early settlers in America were devoutly re-
ligious people. They were concerned about the
lack of spirituality in their countries, and they de-
sired to bring a new vitality to their new spiritual
lives. When forbidden by their governments to


worship as they saw fit and when persecuted be-
cause they continued to do so, they fled to a place
where they thought they would be safe from gov-
ernment interference in their lives. In the "New
World" they laid the foundation of a Christian way
of life that thrived for .- ., ,. -
Now that spiritual foundation is being threat-
ened by the very people who have benefited so
much from the principles they now decry. We
must be firm in our convictions that our founding
fathers were not wrong in their commitment to
Jesus Christ.
If we are to remain strong and free to worship
God as our forefathers intended, we must cling
firmly to the values and traditions that gave our
forefathers their courage. And we must seek after
the God who alone can keep us holy and blame-
less before Him.


very so of
ten, some-
one will
ask a question to
embarrass another
rather than to really
seek an answer. A
passage in the Gos-
pel of Luke begins
"Some Sadducees,
those who say there
is no resurrection...
(Luke 20:27ff)" ask
ing the Lord to tell
what happens after
the resurrection. The
question was posed


Rev. Sam. S. Thomas,
Ph. D. +


to put Jesus on the
spot.
They cite an imaginary example: a man is
married, he dies without children, leaving his
wife, and by law she goes to the next brother.
That brother also dies childless and she is left to


the next brother, and then he dies. This widow
marries seven brothers, according to the Saddu-
cees' example, and then they ask who will be her
husband in Heaven? Their appeal? "Well, after all,
it's the law!" and that is what is required. Whose
wife is she in Heaven? The answer from Jesus?
It's not a question of the law; it's a question of
having our own special place in Heaven. His an-
swer is about living, living without the constraints
of a limiting law but rather living in harmony with
God. And isn't that what marriage is finally about,
and what love is all about?
The answer Jesus gives gets at the heart of
the matter; it isn't as if marriage is some magical
state conferred by a blessing, but it's about our
relationship with others. We speak of 1.I. -..1.. :
of a marriage" suggesting that it must already ex-
ist first before the blessing is given. This is not a
legal sense of binding that the Sadducees allude
to in their question. The answer given "...in the
resurrection from the dead, neither marry nor are
given in marriage (Luke 20:35)."
The reply is in terms of our relations with one
another, not about contracts, holds we think we
may have, rights, conditions or some pronounce-
ment by a religious body. I've always thought to
rn, if 1i '. i i. .. 1ii this poor woman?!" No free-
dom of choice? Getting the same family with all
of the quirks and foibles that one would have to
learn to live with, over and over and over! Jesus'
answer gives her a breath of freedom; she's not
married to any of them in Heaven (maybe she re-
ally would have thanked God for a big favor.)
I'm sure we'll have special relationships with
others in our lives when Heaven begins; I look
forward to seeing friends, some of my family, get
ting to know those who were a part of my life
even before I was born on this earth, and mar
riage partners will be among those who will have
had a place and part. But to be married?
Apparently not; and that may not be a bad
thing for some people. In the meantime, I sa-
vor those special relationships among all who
have touched my life in a special way during this
earthly II._-I ....i -., I thank God for them, enjoy
their blessings, and know they will be special in
Heaven, too. But married? The Lord knows best!


Lake Okeechobee Weekly Fishing Report by Mark King


Bass Fishing Heats Up

BY MARK KING
Are you looking to catch some nice bass or
two? Then Lake Okeechobee is the place to be
now as the weather continues to cool off and the
bass fishing heats up.
Bass fishing with wild shiners and artificial
lures has been really good and seem to be only
getting better by the day.
The Office Depot Foundation held a tourna-
ment last week out of Roland Martin's Marina.
Guide Jerry Wares guided his participants to a
win with over 27 pounds in five bass while my
guys finished fourth with 21 pounds.
That is pretty strong for this time of the year
and the fishing should only get better going into
winter here on Okeechobee.
This was a charity event to raise money for


the National Backpack program that supplies un-
derprivileged children with backpacks filled with
pencils, paper, and other school needs. NASCAR
racersT.,,. '.1, ,ii ,,i P /anNewmanwere here
on Lake Okeechobee to fish this event.
The bass are still holding on the outside grass
line but a few are starting to move back in the
thicker grass toward spawning areas.
My clients caught bass fishing Gambler Big
EZ swimbaits along the outside grass from Long
Point to Ritta Island last week with most of the
bass in the two- to four-pound range.
We also started the mornings out throwing a
Zara Super Spook in the open water areas around
the reed heads and caught quite a few bass be-
fore moving back into the heavier grass to spend
the rest of the day.
I have also been catching bass pretty good
on 10" worms and Gambler Aces weighted with


1/16 ounce screw in sinkers to get a slow fall with
these baits. Some other areas that have been
good are the North Shore around Horse Island,
from Uncle Joe' Cut up to Cochran's Pass, and
the Monkey Box.
Some of these areas will depend on the wind
direction and speed but they all seem to clean up
quick after the wind slows down. I think that with
the water level below 13.5 feet above sea level,
that it doesn't get some much wave action as it
does when the water level is up.
We should really have clear water in most ar-
eas to fish this winter, I just hope it doesn't go too
low to get back in to where the bass are.
The dynamite holes and rim canal are still
holding some bass and on windy days these areas
can be really good and a lot easier than trying to
fish out on the main lake in strong winds.
There have been some crappies showing up


around the point of the reef, the lake end of Uncle
Joe's Cut, and the rim canal around the Moore
Haven area. Jigs and minnows are both working
real well, with chartreuse and green jigs working
good.
The snowbirds are back so we will all want to
show some courtesy out on the water and at the
boat ramps.
Instead of complaining about how long it
takes for some of them to launch their boat ask
them if the want some help or tell them where
they can catch some fish out on the water, there
is plenty for all of us to catch.
Good luck and tight lines, hope to see you on
the water.

famous Roland Martin's Marina and Resort in

way to the school to kill Mr. Duckstein."
The Hendry County Sheriff's Office took the
case at approximately 3:30 p.m. and at that time
Principal Duckstein refused to press charges, ask
ing instead that the angered parent be issued a
no trespassing order effective across all Hendry
County schools and school functions.
In the police's report, Officer Matt Beatty, who
also serves as a school board member with the
Hendry County School District, explained that the
miscommunication happened after the child's fa-
ther assumed his son had been punished.
Police made contact with the man by phone.
He told them he had no way of driving in to
town and agreed to be picked up by a deputy for
questioning. He also did not have a valid drivers


license.
"I then turned the investigation over to the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office having failed to
reach probable cause that C-- (the father) had
the intent or ability to carry out the verbal threats
toward the principal," Officer Beatty explained in
his report.
In a brief telephone call before referring all
calls to the superintendent's office, Mr. Duckstein
reported that no further issues arose from the
threat and that all employees, including himself,
were doing fine.
Given the nature of the threat, and the fact
that police felt the need to conduct a school wide
lockdown, questions linger about the reasoning
behind not pursuing charges against the man. Mr.
Duckstein did not get an opportunity to respond
to such questions. C. Gordon Swaggerty, assistant
superintendent of Hendry Schools, was in Talla-
hassee and unavailable for comment.

the collaborative and team spirit we have at CHS,
I am confident we will continue to improve,"

Indeed there is always room for more work

"In the end we just want to thank all the teach-

OHS Football Team Loses to Clewiston in Classic Battle

Tigers secure this year's victory in tough game for classic rivals


BY CHARLES M. MURPHY
Special to INI
Brahman Coach Myron Jackson and Clewis
ton Coach Joe Roth knew that Friday night's ri
valry game in Clewiston would be a tough game
and a battle. It turned into a classic as Clewiston
prevailed 30-24 in one of the closer games these
schools have played over the past ., ,,.
"It lived up to its status," Jackson said, "It has
taken a long time but I feel we are getting there.
We are meshing and everybody is pulling in the
same direction."
Clewiston got 123 yards rushing from Virthavi-
ous Robinson. He had an eight yard touchdown
run in the first quarter as Clewiston built a 13-0
lead. His runs in the second half helped led
Clewiston to 10 fourth quarter points that helped
them hold the lead.
"It came out good. We played our game and
I gave my all. We wanted to give the seniors one
more victory," he noted.
Clewiston rolled to 135 yards in offense and
two touchdowns in the first quarter and appeared
headed toward a big win. Aukeemian Mills had
other ideas as he returned a punt 57 yards to set
up a Brahman scoring drive. Erick McQueen, (198
total yards) scored on a 29 yard run to make it
13-7. Moments later Okeechobee took a 14-13
lead as Colby Frank recovered a fumble on the
kickoff and Jack Radebaugh, (242 yards passing
and two touchdowns) found Alonzo Coleman
wide open for a touchdown and a 14-13 lead.

Okeechobee increased the lead to 17-13 in the
third quarter when Adel Elhendi hit a 20 yard field
goal. Mills, (83 yards in receptions) caught two
big third down passes on the drive.
Coach Jackson said he felt the offense played
their best game of the year, "As the season you're
supposed to play your best ball at the end of the
season. We are definitely doing that."
The lead changed hands twice in the second
half as Clewiston came back on a long 90 yard
run led by a 43 yard dash by fullback Fred Wash-
ington. Darius Redd caught an eight yard pass at
the back of the end zone to give Clewiston a 20-17
lead.
Okeechobee came back when McQueen
struck again on an 80 yard pass. He caught
the ball at the 28 yard line and raced 72 more
yards untouched into the Tiger end zone to give
Okeechobee a 24-20 lead.
Coach Jackson said he was able to get Mc-
Queen into some mismatches which helped him
achieve great things in this game, "Erick always
gives us great effort. They left him open on a few
plays here and there and we were able to take
advantage of it."
Okeechobee had another scoring opportunity
after the defense held the Tigers on 4th and one at
the Tiger 35. McQueen immediately raced for 18
yards and then took the next handoff into the end
zone for an apparent touchdown. The play was
called back by a Brahman holding penalty.
The Tigers responded with an 82 yard drive


"What a game this was. It was great effort from both football
teams. You kind of figured who ever had the ball last would win
the game."
Coach Jackson


capped by a 15 yard touchdown run by gutsy QB
Andres Rios. He rushed for 97 yards and the Ti-
gers had 327 yard rushing as a team.
Okeechobee had a season high 336 yards in
offense.
For Clewiston the victory was a chance to
send out 12 seniors with a hard fought victory.
Clewiston finished (4-6) and won't make the
playoffs this year. "What a game this was. It was
great effort from both football teams. You kind of
figured who ever had the ball last would win the
game."
Okeechobee did have two opportunities to
score in the final minutes. Radebaugh was in-
tercepted on desperation fourth down pass on
the first drive. After Colby Frank grabbed a huge
fourth down pass to keep the drive, Radebaugh
(13-26) misfired on three consecutive passes to
end the Brahman hopes.
Coach Jackson said he thinks his team will re-
spond next week when they play in a first round

"It will be a testament to the kids to test our
fortitude on how we bounce back and handle this
adversity. The kids wanted this one, they fought
desperately for it. We'll see how tough the team is
inside next week," he added.

BY Lt. SUSAN HARRELLE
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
With the holidays upon us and millions of
Americans hitting the roads, Hendry C. ., 11, ., r-
iff Steve Whidden wants everyone to arrive safely
at their destinations. We want drivers and passen-
gers alike to remember, to Buckle Up. Every Trip,
Every Time.
"Many of us over indulge in holiday goodies
and loosen our belts a little after dinner," said
Sheriff Steve Whidden. "But remember, there's
nothing that should keep you from tightening
your seat belt when you get in a motor vehicle.
The potential consequences are just too great."
While seat belt use is at a record high of 85%
nationwide, 45 million Americans still fail to
buckle up when they get in a motor vehicle. Ac-
cording to statistics from the U.S. Department of
Transportation, National Highway Traffic Safety
Administration (NHTSA), on any given day about
38 passenger vehicle occupants who are not
buckled up are killed in motor vehicle crashes.
In 2008 alone, nearly 13,000 unbuckled pas-
senger vehicle occupants lost their lives on U.S.
roadways. It is estimated that nearly one third
of these lives could have been saved if they had
been properly belted. NHTSA statistics also show
that those least likely to buckle up are teens;
young adults; males; nighttime riders; motorists


traveling on rural roads, and individuals traveling
in pickup trucks.
"Sadly, the holidays, which for many are the
happiest time of the year, is also one of the deadli-
est and most tragic," said Sheriff Whidden.
Hendry County Law Enforcement officers will
be cracking down on seat-belt violators after the
law was changed last year to allow citations solely
for people who don't buckle up. Sheriff Whidden
wants to remind everyone "the goal is simple;
we want to get more drivers and passengers to
buckle up day and night."
"No one wants to have to start the holidays off
wrong with a ticket," said Sheriff Steve Whidden.
"But we would rather issue a citation than have to
notify a family member about the death of a loved
one that could have been prevented by wearing a
seat belt." A ticket for not wearing your seat belt
could cost you $113 not having a child properly
secured in a child restraint could cost you $163
and three points against your driver's license.
The 2010 Thanksgiving holiday campaign will
run from November 21 to 30.
"I want to remind everyone that wearing your
seat belt is the most effective way to protect peo-
ple and reduce fatalities in motor vehicle crashes.
Wearing a seat belt costs you nothing, but not
wearing it could cost you a ticket or worse.. .your
life," said Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden.
