Will Red-Light Cameras get the Green Light?


City considers $236K
installation of
cameras at
intersections

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
Months ago, the city of Clewiston
considered the use of red light camera
as, but seemed to ease into the matter
very carefully as some cities in the state
became mired in lawsuits challenging
the use of red light cameras.
Today, the city and its leaders are
confident that the kinks have been
ironed out, with the passage of the
Mark Wandall Traffic Safety Act, and are
pushing for the cameras anew. Locally,
leaders say the issue is not one of gen
rating revenue -a criticism that some
in the community have been making
but of public safety; the mayor herself
says she is tired of seeing trucks "blast
through" the city's red lights on a daily
basis.
With approximately 20,000 vehicles
using U.S. 27 everyday, the city's main
corridor, something needs to change,
leaders seem to be saying.
"If it's going to slow traffic down,
I'd like to see a red-light camera at ev
ery corner," Mayor Mali Chamness said
in an interview this week. "But that's
not what the study indicated."
The study the mayor referred to

Girl threatens student

An 11 year-old girl at Clewiston Mid

she threatened to take an eyebrow ar
cher to school. Instead, she reportedly
took a box cutter.
Deputies with the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office talked to a coach at
the school. The coach had been ap
preached by one of her students who
told her she thought the suspect
had an eyebrow archer in her

problems with the suspect for a few
weeks. They said the suspect threat

them without incident.

RELIGIOUS COLUMNS


The Bible And
Our Founding Fathers
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
Thanksgiving Week is also "National
Bible Week" in America. Our Founding
Fathers made the Bible a significant part
of our nation's laws. The Political Science Dept. of
the University of Houston collected 15,000 pieces
of writings by the Founders to see what motivated
their writings. Of the 15,000 pieces researched,
the Bible was quoted 16 times more often than
any other outside sources.
According to David Barton in his book, The
Myth of Separation, "Thirty-four percent of all
quotes by the Founders were taken straight from
Scripture. Furthermore, another 60 percent of
the Founders' quotes were simply quotes of men
who had quoted the Bible. In total, the research
ers discovered that 94 percent of the Founders'
quotes came either directly or indirectly from
God's Word. Perhaps that is what drove President
Washington to state that, "It would be impossible
to rightly govern the world without God and the
Bible."
Did you know that when the Founders were
contemplating the idea behind the branches
of government they took their cues from Isaiah
33:22? "For the Lord is our Judge, the Lord is our
Lawmaker, the Lord is our King." Tax exemption
for churches was taken from a passage in Ezra
7:24: "Also, we inform you, that it shall not be
lawful to impose tax, tribute, or custom on any of
the priests, Levites, singers, gatekeepers, temple
servants, or servants of the house of God."
With so much practical information in the
Bible, why is it that our lawmakers have such dis
dain for God's inerrant word? Could it be that we
as a nation have become wise in our own ways?
Paul writes in Romans 1:21, "Although they knew
God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were
thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and
their foolish hearts were darkened."
It takes a humble spirit on behalf of our law
makers to realize they don't have all the answers.
The scriptures transcend time and can indeed
share a lot of light on key issues we are facing
today in our society.

Come on, Ring Those Bells
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
The year was 1863, and writer Henry
Wadsworth Longfellow was grieving the
Christmas holiday without a son he had
lost in the devastating war between the states. In
the midst of his grief and what was happening,
Wadsworth wrote one of his best known poems,
"Christmas Bells."
"I heard the bells on Christmas Day, their old,
familiar carols play. And wild and sweet the words
repeat of peace on earth, good will to men!"
But the bells were drowned out with cannon
fire. "Then from each black, accursed mouth the
cannon thundered in the South. And with the
sound the carols drowned, of peace on earth,

goodwill to men!"
It struck a note of pain and loss as he thought
of the many who had lost sons like him: "It was as
if an earthquake rent the hearth stones of a con
tinent. And made forlorn the households born of
peace on earth, good will to men! And in despair
I bowed my head; "There is no peace on earth,"
I said. "For hate is strong and mocks the song of
peace on earth, good will to men!"
In the midst of all of this, there came to his
ears the ringing of bells once more. A church
was ringing in Christmas Day. Each toll of the bell
brought a renewed hope to Longfellow's heart:
"Then pealed the bells more loud and deep: "God
is not dead; nor doth he sleep! The wrong shall
fail, the right prevail, with peace on earth, good
will toward men!"
Throughout history, in times of peace and in
times of war, in good times and in bad times, in
easy times and in hard time, hope is what carries
us through. The ringing of the church bells was
not much of a sign by the world's standards, but
it was enough to be a sign of hope for Longfellow,
even in the midst of hopelessness. Every year at
Christmas time, we are reminded of God's great
gift of hope and promise for each of us. Christ
mas may not be much of a sign by the world's
standards, but for those who believe, it is a sign
of great hope. "The people who walked in dark
ness have seen a great light; those who dwell in a
land of deep darkness on them light has shined"
(Isaiah 9:2). With the coming of this light there is
hope. As the Christmas carols sing out: "A thrill of
hope, the weary world rejoices; for yonder breaks
a new and glorious morn!" So, "Come on, ring

Thanksgiving 2010: Recalling
God's Presence With Us
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
A few years back, when the hurricanes
struck our coast and utilities were dis
SXupted, people were complaining about
the interruptions of electricity and other services.
Representatives of the utilities explained they had
priorities; institutions that took care of the sick,
the infirm, those unable to help themselves and
emergency services -police, fire, EMT, public
works. Most people understood. One lady com
plained "Am I going to be the last person to get
my electricity back?" The answer may well have
been "Perhaps!" but she seemed to miss some
thing. Those who were charged with restoration
were doing their best.
There is another story about a disaster and
flooding. It was far greater than what happened
to our coast; in fact, the whole known world was
flooded. Lives were destroyed wholesale and it
wasn't for a few days; it went on for weeks. One
man and his family were saved, along with other
living creatures. You may recall the story of Noah
(Genesis 6ff). The story, as the Bible recounts it
to us, tells us of what Noah did when all the wa
ters finally subsided. He built an altar (chapter 8,


v. 20). This was not an act of complaining; it was
an act of thanksgiving. There was a recognition
that God had i-.. i. him through the greatest of
disasters, and he was grateful. As I look around
and see how difficult things might be, and how
God has been with us and carried us through, I
am moved to take the example of Noah.
There always seems to be something to com
plain about; but how many times we miss the
opportunities to see all of the things we can be
thankful about. Are we still surrounded by friends
and loved ones? Do we still continue on; even if it
may not be as comfortable or as lavish as it once
was (or as we might like it)? Do we have access
to many of the things and parts of life that did not
exist just a few years ago?
One Thanksgiving as I was sharing in a com
munity worship service, one of the officials stand
ing next to me said "You know, people today re
ceiving public assistance have it much better than
my parents did, and they worked a lot harder and
longer than many who are working today." They
probably worked longer and for many of them,
under much more dangerous conditions, too. No,
there is no shortage of things and conditions for
which we can be thankful during this special sea
son and on this special day.
The lesson of Noah applies to all of us and
as we celebrate Thanksgiving, it would be appro
private to do it at an altar, too. We don't have to
build one; there are many around thanks to our
spiritual ancestors. We can give thanks for the
heritage they left us too; and take a lesson from
them. In spite of all that may seem to have been
hard; Thanksgiving is about who we are.

Lake Okeechobee Weekly Fishing Report


BY MARK KING

Wow, what another great week
fishing here on Lake Okeechobee!
The bass have really moved in from
the main lake to spawn on this full
moon and some really nice bass are
being caught all over the lake. Does
catching a seven or eight-pound bass
excite you? Well, it sure does me and
when you add a good number of two
to five-pound bass with it all I can say
is that Lake Okeechobee is one awe
some fishery. The weather has been
good with cool nights and warm days.
We could use a little less wind but
then that's fishing here in South Flor
ida through the winter months. The
lake level continues to drop and is at
13.13 feet above sea level. I sure hope
that we can keep some of the water in

tinuing to drop and making
shallow rocky areas hard
on boats and motors. If in
doubt about running your
boat, just idle toward the
main lake, it only takes a
few extra minutes to get to
deeper safer water.
The bass fishing with
wild shiners has been off
the hook this week with
MARKKING the outside grass line clos
h is hold- est to the main lake being
the place to be. Areas like
the East Wall, Coots Bay,
Long Point, and the shoal
up around Observation Island all being
good areas. Most of the guides out of


Roland Martin's Marina have been us
ing between five and seven dozen shin
ers for a full day of fishing and there are
days we have been coming back in and
getting more. If throwing artificial lures
is what you like to do, then be pre
pared to catch bass and lots of them.
For artificial lure selection this week
a Zara Spook or Spro Frog worked
great for that topwater bite along with
a Gambler Big EZ for retrieving across
the heavier grass. But most of the bass
my clients caught this week came on a
Gambler Ace pitched around the reed
heads on the outside grass line, or in
i . 1 ,. on the shoal around Turn
er's Cove. I have been fishing all of my
lures on braided line so that I can get
the bass out of the heavy cover. I like
using Diamond Braid line in fifty or
sixty pound test. This line is round and


will not frustrate you like other lines
that are flat and pulling down in the
spool, and with it being round you can
really make some long casts to get into
those spots that the fish are in.
The crappie bite has picked up
some and the rim canal, Harney Pond
Canal, point of the reef, and the lake
end of Uncle Joe's cut are all good ar
eas to try. The snow birds are back and
we will all want to be more careful and
courteous out on the lake. We all want
to have a safe and fun time out on the
water. Until next week good luck and
tight lines out on our great lake.

November is National Diabetes Awareness Month


BY PAT DOBBINS
Hendry/Glades Health Departments
Family history of diabetes increases the risk
for 1. i-. .;,,.. i. .i;, Take steps now to pre
vent diabetes in future. Many people who develop
type 2 diabetes have one or more family mem-
bers with the disease. While you can't change
your family history, you can share your family's
health history with your doctor or other health
care provider. This can be your first important
preventative step.
Diabetes is a disease where the body doesn't
produce insulin or when your body doesn't use
insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that your
body needs to convert sugar, starches and other
foods into energy, and of course we all need en
ergy for our daily lives!
When a person has diabetes, they also have
an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney
disease, or blindness. There is no known cure
for diabetes, but there is treatment. Diet, exercise
and new medicines can prevent or delay much
of the illness and complications of diabetes. Did
you know that there is also something known as
pre diabetes?
Pre-diabetes is a blood glucose level higher
than normal, but not high enough to be diag
nosed as diabetes. Askyour doctor abo ii I... ,.:
tested.
The Florida Department of Health (DOH) has
partnered with the National Diabetes Education
Program (NDEP) during November, which is Na
tional Diabetes Awareness Month, to share the
important message about knowing one's family


history of diabetes.
More than one million Floridians are living
with diabetes. Approximately one-third of people
with diabetes don't know they have the disease,
and people with undiagnosed diabetes may ex
perience damage to the heart, eyes, kidneys, and
limbs -without experiencing any symptoms.
People can prevent or delay type 2 diabetes by
losing a small amount of weight and becoming
more active.
Action steps that can benefit the health of all
family members include making healthy food
choices and being physically active at least 30
minutes per day for five or more days per week.
Take action now! Get at least 30 minutes of
physical activity every day. Dance, walk the dog,


play with your kids, eat healthier, learn serving
sizes. Do as your mom told you ... eat your veg
tables!
To learn more about family health history and
1. .I.. : type 2 diabetes, take a look at NDEP's
risk tests in English and Spanish. Visit www.Your
DiabetesInfo.org or call 1-888-693-NDEP (6337);

Clewiston High School Boys Basketball

Team has Challenge Ahead


New Season Promises
to be Interesting

BY TIMM BOYLE
Clewiston Sports Desk
Losing three seniors to graduation who were
four-year starters would put a damper on any
basketball program. But 22nd-year head varsity
coach Willie Lee believes he has enough talent
coming back to make the 2010-11 season very
interesting.
"I've got two players back who were starters
the past two years and it's their time now," said
Lee, whose district runner-up team was 15-11
last season. "Now they have to make the plays
instead of having the plays made for them."
Those returning starters are Lee's son, Ra'Vin,
a 5-foot 10 shooting guard, and Darius Redd, a


Team Coming
Together as a Unit

BY TIMM BOYLE
Clewiston Sports Desk
After beginning the 2010 soccer season with
a pair of losses, the Clewiston High School var
sity team got its act together last week. The Lady
Tigers evened their record at 2-2 with wins of 5-0
over Immokalee on Nov. 8 and 8-0 at Glades Cen
tral in a district game Nov. 9. Then on Monday,
they went over the .500 mark with a 5-0 victory
over previously unbeaten Lake Placid.
"We figured out our flow and team arrange
ment, and it's very different from in the past," said
coach Keri Alford. "Losing those first two games
(1-0 to Glades Day and 4-1 to Riverdale) was an
eye-opener for us. There was some individual
hustle, but the team ,-i'iI ,i.iij- : ld .. ll., i ,. t.
"Admittedly, we weren't challenged as much
during our wins last week as we will be, but I
liked how we were moving the ball around. Our
forwards were finishing and our midfielders were
scoring as well. Hopefully this new arrangement
will help when we face tougher competition."
Keeper Tina Autrey recorded the shutouts
against Immokalee and Glades Central. Juniors
Diana Hernandez and Adriana Rangel scored two
goals each versus Immokalee, while senior Brit
tany Bacallao tallied once. Against Glades Central,
Rangel scored four goals, Hernandez three and
senior Sarah Howell one in a game halted after


6'-3", 260-pound center. Both are juniors.
They'll be accompanied in the starting lineup
by 5-5 junior guard Johnny Jackson, 5-9 senior
guard Tyree Wilson and 5-10 senior forward Ju
wan Byrd.
"Even our non-starters have a lot of game
experience," Lee said. "We're very athletic and
very quick. We'll do a lot of pressing and trap
ping and running up and down the floor. We'll
run hard and we'll work hard on defense.
"One thing we have going for us is that a lot
of the teams in our district also lost key players
to graduation, so we're all in the same boat."
Other Clewiston High School varsity boys
basketball players include sophomore forward
Darrylreal Allen, sophomore guard Lorenzo
Boyd, sophomore forward Cedrick Brown, se
nior forward John Brown, sophomore center
Antonio Hernandez, sophomore guard Ahmad
Richards, junior guard Maury Skinner and junior
center Te'Angelo Ulett.

the first half.
"Tina was not tested often against Immoka
lee or Glades Central, but she did prove that she
is prepared for PK (penalty kick) opportunities,
as she fought to keep her shutout game," Alford
said.
Against Lake Placid, Clewiston scored four
second-half goals to turn a close game into a rout.
Four of the team's five goals were scored by differ
ent players, and Autry gained her third shutout.
The Lady Tigers finished off their matches for
the week on Friday at Lely.
"This week is a chance for the girls to show
their true potential and will prove whether or
not their individual talents can be matched up to
form a united squad," Alford said in reference to
the last week of play. "I'm excited to see how the
week plays out. I know what they're capable of as
a team and I hope to see them set the pace and
play their game."

Cameras
Continued From Page 1

arland Hwy. was that there were much more
than just two violations occurring. At the South
Francisco, Olympia, W.C. Owens and San Pedro
intersections, the company recorded, 7, 7, 10 and
17 violations, respectively. (Numbers account for
straight red-light runs, as opposed to the control
versial right hand turns on red.)
"This obviously shows that we have a prob
lem," said Steve McKown, Clewiston city man
ager.
In their presentation to the city, ATS offered
that the city will not be responsible for paying the
remainder of the cost of the cameras if the cam
eras turn out to catch fewer than two violators per
day, the manager explained.
There will be an opportunity for one last pub
lic hearing before the ordinance is fully approved.
Residents will have an opportunity to voice their
reservations prior to the final vote and adoption
but already, many are expressing their concern:
"They look at the idea and all they see are
dollar signs," Richard Stanton told The Clewiston
News. "Clewiston needs to take a look at all of the
legal problems this has caused across the state
and rethink this grand idea."
Another person weighed in on this newspa
per's online forum: "Red-light cameras, while sta
tistically usually do decrease the number of right
angle crashes, increase the amount of rear-end
collisions. These rear end wrecks typically cause
more or higher chances of neck/back injury."

Field Sobriety "Waltz"
Officers on routine patrol stopped a man Sun
day morning who was spotted driving at a slow
rate of speed in a Chevrolet Venture at the inter
section of Aztec and WC. Owens in Clewiston.
Police acted when the vehicle turned left without
signaling the turn.
The 32-year old driver, Humberto Ramirez,
seemed to the officer to exhibit a strong odor the


The manager responds. There is little evi
dence to support that more accidents will happen
as a result of red-light runners slamming on their
brakes, and says that the cameras will address
public safety, not revenue.
One misconception is that the cameras will
snap the photo and send a ticket automatically.
According to Mr. McKown, a police officer will
still review the infractions and make a final call
whether to issue a ticket -something he expects
will not be labor intensive.
If anything, once drivers get used to the cam
eras, the city expects violations to decrease dra
matically. If it does and the city and company de
cide the numbers simply aren't there to continue
supporting the concept, the plan can be revisited
in the future.
It wouldn't be a bad thing if that were to hap
pen, he said.
The final form of the ordinance is not yet es
tablished, especially with regard to right turns at
red lights, the manager explained. Also not yet
decided is whether simply the two most active
intersections will have red lights, or if all of the
intersections along the busy thoroughfare will
have cameras.
For her part, Mayor Chamness said she is not
focusing on the city ticketing right turns at red
lights.
"The law really limits you to straight red lights.
Most of the traffic citations involved turning right
on red without properly stopping. That's not re
ally our issue. The straight running of red lights is
our concern."
Public hearing is set for Dec. 20, 2010. The
public is invited to comment.


officer believed to be alcohol. The man agreed to
a field sobriety test to determine the level of his
intoxication.
Three tests were given:
In the first, the man was told to follow a pen
with his eyes, but when the officers started to
move the pen away from him, he continued to
stare directly at the officers, and ignored the pen.
In the second test, the one-legged stand, the
man proceeded to do the exercise without being
instructed three times, and failed the exercise.
In the third test, the heel to toe, the man alto
gether scrapped the exercise in favor of his own
concoction.
"While Officer Sanchez explained to Ramirez
to take heel-to-toe steps, Ramirez began to dance
a dance which he referred to as, 'The Valz.'"
The man was placed under arrest, charged
with driving under the influence.

Pink is the new orange
The Hendry Regional Medical Center Imaging Department enthusiastically
promoted National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by making and selling
hand-crafted "Go Pink" bracelets to hospital employees. If $500 was raised,
the males in the department (and others) agreed to wear pink wigs on the
last Friday of October. The responses and orders were so overwhelming that
the Imaging staff had to catch up with the requests. As a result of their hard
work and efforts, they raised $1,300. The funds were presented to hospital
