Leadership Water Day


BY AMY MCKOWN
Special to INI
Lake Okeechobee was the center of
discussion during the November ses
sion of the Leadership Hendry Glades
class. Meeting for the day at the Roland
Martin Marina, located just beside Lake
Okeechobee in Clewiston, the class
heard presentations from Army Corps
of Engineers, South Florida Water Man
agement District, the Florida Division of
Forestry and business leader Mary Ann





8 16510 00020 7


Martin.
Mary Ann Martin, owner of Roland
Martin Marina, was first to discuss Lake
Okeechobee issues, giving her person
al experience of the past i,,. ,,.i .the
lake's history.
She explained the importance of
relationship between the various agen
cies surrounding the lake and the tour
ist attractions through the to benefit all
businesses in the area.
"There is no bigger draw of people
to this area than through this lake," said
Ms. Martin. "It brings fishermen, bird
ers, hikers and so many other people
to come and see us here."
Ms. Martin also described the cycles
Lake Okeechobee has been through
such as the dry season.
"Everything happens for a reason


and because of the drought the lake
went through, it cleaned itself," she
explained. "During that time the trash
and junk was allowed to dry up and
burn up and now we have the natural
grasses and such coming back. And
now because of that our lake is at it's
prime. And this lake is hot as a fire
cracker right now."
The Leadership class also heard
from Jon Morton, biologist for the Army
Corps of Engineers, on the creation and
history of the lake as well as the cur
rent issues on foreign plant life, birding
counts and more. Ingrid Bon with the
Army Corps of Engineers discussed
the history, creation and massive reha
bilitation efforts for the Herbert Hoover
Dike. She stated that the rehabilitation
has various stages and will take many


years to complete.
The class got a first-hand look at the
lake through a tour given by Charles
Hanlon and Phil Flood of the South
Florida Water Management District.
Plant life, birds and other wildlife, lake
levels and ecology were all discussed.
The purpose of the Hendry Glades
Leadership class is to expose business
and community leaders to many as
pects of the community throughout the
course of a year. During the month of
December the class will hold its com
merce day.

dry Glades Leadership class, please

BY GLENDA WILSON
Hendry Regional Medical Center
On Friday, Nov. 12, 35 students from Clewiston
and Moore Haven High Schools looked beyond
graduation and into a career of nursing when they
participated in "A Day in the Life of a Nurse," an
annual nursing interaction and observation pro
gram held each year at Hendry Regional Medical
Center.
David McClusky, education assistant, coordi
nated the days' activities with a goal of inspiring
students to pursue a nursing career and providing


them with a glimpse of the important and varied
tasks that nurses perform. Rick Murphy, Hendry
County's School superintendent, welcomed the
group of students. Lynn Beasley, hospital CEO,
shared some exciting things that are happening
at Hendry Regional. Pam Redondo, chief nurs
ing officer, provided a PowerPoint presentation:
"Nurses Do Change Lives."
Other presenting staff members included
Sharon Murphy R.N. (infection control and O.R.
manager), Sandra Gerber R.N. (Clinical Educa
tion Director), Marilyn Lamb R.N. (social service
and utilization review), Toni Pavey-McDaniel
(ARNP), and Gretta Gallo R.N. ( recent graduate
). All shared what nursing means to them.

and hows of the profession, nursing recruiters,

pate in "A Day in the Life of a Nurse" program on Friday, Nov. 12.


Susan Holland R.N. (from Edison State College)
and June Osavio R.N. (from Palm Beach State
College), also took part in the program and en
courage the students to steer towards a career
in nursing.
One of the highlights of the agenda was the
landing of the Aeromed helicopter (out of La
Belle) from Tampa General Hospital and a pre
sentation provided by its flight nurse, Rhonda. In
addition, the hospital's scholarship program was
discussed and explained. Many revealed that their
experiences in "A Day in the Life of a Nurse" had
helped to seal their decisions in moving forward
with the nursing profession. At the end of the day,
the high school students left with a new under

Lake Okeechobee Weekly Fishing Report


Great Weather Brings
Great Fishing

BY MARK KING
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving with
family and friends. I spent a couple days with the
family relaxing and eating seafood at our place
in the Keys. But I'm back on Lake Okeechobee
and the fishing continues to be great with bass
moving into more areas everyday from out on the
main lake.
The weather has been great with warm days
and cool nights that are bringing the water tem-
perature down a little more everyday. I have had
reports of bass being caught from the north end
of the lake all the way to the south end of the lake.
I'm still catching some really nice bass on both
wild shiners and on artificial lures here out of the
Clewiston area.
Areas like the shoal from Uncle Joe's Cut up


to Turners Cove have been
good both on the outside
of the eel grass and in be
tween the reed line and eel
grass. Try throwing a worm
or soft plastic swim bait like
the Gambler Big EZ or Re
action Innovations Skinny
Dipper.
I throw both of these
swim baits on sixty five
pound test Diamond Braid
for two reasons, first to get
a hook set on long casts
and second so that I can
get these bass out of the
ii i . I ,1i ii, Theworm
that I have been throwing
and pitching into open ar
eas in the grass and around
the reeds is a Gambler Ace rigged either weight
less or with a 1/16 ounce screw in bullet weight.


Again with this bait I'm
also using the Diamond
Braid to detect bites and
to get the bass out of the
thick cover. For hooks I
have been using Trokar
Hooks and have miss far
fewer fish and when you
set the hook that bass is
caught and does not come
of that hook. These are an
awesome new hook that
you owe it to yourself to
try, you won't be disap
pointed.
Some of the other areas
that have been producing
some really nice bass are
the outside grass line in
Coots Bay, East Wall, and
at Long Point. Pelican Bay has started to produce
some bass and around Ritta Island has also been


good these past few weeks. And as always when
the wind blows too hard to fish out on the main
lake the rim canal and dynamite hole have a fair
number of bass to be caught. As the water level
continues to drop there will be more bass to be
caught in the rim canal and dynamite holes this
winter.
I'm still getting reports of crappie being caught
in the rim canal, Harney Pond Canal, Uncle Joe's
Cut at the lake end, and at the point of the reef.
Both minnows fished under a cork and jigs have
been working well.
Now is the time to start planning that fishing
trip to Lake Okeechobee because we all know
that it will soon be to cold to fish most anywhere
else in the country and this is the time that Big
"O" shines the most. Until next week good luck,
tight lines and I hope to see you out on the lake.

ter suffering a tragic accident at his home on
Monday.

pa, and grew up in Pahokee. He was a member

School and Nashville Auto Diesel Mechanics
School in Nashville, Tenn. He then returned to
the Glades to join the family farming business.

Giese Wilkinson; his son and daughter-in-law,

Mr. Wilkinson chose to share with others in

bling others to benefit from his life. Thanksgiv-
ing will have new and special significance to
many families thanks to Jim's final gift.


Corps Of Engineers Continues Lake

Releases to Benefit Caloosahatchee Estuary


BY BARRY D. VORSE
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Jackson
ville District will continue water releases from
Lake Okeechobee to benefit the Caloosahatchee
Estuary. Another seven-day pulse release started
at 7 a.m. on Friday, Nov. 26.
The target flow of this release is an average
flow over the seven-day period of 450 cubic feet
per second (cfs) to the Caloosahatchee Estuary,
measured at WP Franklin Lock and Dam (S-79).
The Corps will make this release in a pulse
like manner to mimic basin response to a rainfall
event. Water managers expect this to help push
back saltwater intrusion, which will have other
associated benefits to the estuary.
The Corps and partner agencies will continue
to closely monitor and assess system conditions,
and may decrease releases if local basin runoff
contributes to flows. The Corps discontinued tar
get flows to the St. Lucie Estuary, Sept. 25. Today,
the lake stage is 13.10 feet NGVD and continues
to recede.

RELIGIOUS COLUMNS U


The Illegal Alien Problem
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
Some of the problems facing this nation do
not have complicated solutions. Does law en
forcement have the right after pulling someone
over for an infraction to ask for proof of citizen
ship? The answer in every case is "YES"! Romans
13 says, "Let every soul be subject to the govern
ing authorities. Whoever resists the authority re
sists the ordinance of God, and those who resist
the authority will bring judgment on themselves.
For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to
evil. Do what is good,and you will have praise
from the same." The point is, if people are here
legally, and have obeyed the laws in relation to ar
riving in this country, they should in turn have no
problem with presenting identification as to their
being here legally. According to the Apostle Paul,
the only people who fear the law are those who
are intentionally breaking the law.
I was fishing with a couple of guys the other
day and a Fish & Game Official stopped us. We
had to show our Fishing license, and the Officer
checked life jackets, fire extinguisher, sounding
device, boat registration and the live well to make
sure our fish were legal. I didn't feel that I was be
ing harassed by having to do all of these things.
We are a nation of laws and only the law breakers
have something to fear from the law.
The point is, the rule of law must abound or
tyranny will. One reason our immigration policy
is failing in America is simply because we have no
immigration policy. The problem is coming from
those who are here illegally. As Paul says, "There
fore whoever resists the authority resists the or
dinance of God, and those who resist will bring
judgment on themselves." All that is needed to
solve the illegal alien problem is to insist that law
enforcement abide by the laws that are already
on the books and that our Judges go by those
laws and quit legislating from the bench.
It's amazing how the Bible has the solutions
to our problems if we would but follow it.

Christmas Specials
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Every Christmas movie or TV special has a
message to share. Some are silly, some sentimen
tal, and some are just ii,. .. -ii, '. As a child, I
watched them all with wonder and delight. As
I matured, I began to give them more thought.
They seemed fun, but superficial, and I wondered
if they didn't detract from the true meaning of
Christmas. As I've grown older I've come to won
der that less and less. Rather than be suspicious of
the secular world, I've learned a better approach
is to look at the world through the eyes of faith
and find the truth of God hidden in the world
around us and in the TV specials.
For instance, "How the Grinch Stole Christ
mas" teaches that there is something special
about Christmas: Something that transcends the
presents, Christmas trees, meals, or decorations.
To quote the Grinch, "It came without ribbons.
It came without tags. It came without packages,
boxes or bags. And he puzzled and puzzled 'till
his puzzler was sore. Then the Grinch thought of
something he hadn't before. What if Christmas,
he thought, doesn't come from a store? What if
Christmas, perhaps, means a little bit more?"
And, of course, it does. Christmas means
hope. It means that God wasn't finished with the
world then, and God isn't finished with it now. We
are loved so much that God has done something
amazing to save us and to show us the way.
But here was where "How the Grinch Stole


Christmas" fell short. It tells what Christmas isn't,
but not what it is.
Luckily, there are more TV specials and we
can find an answer to what Christmas is from a
boy who loved to carry a blue blanket. In "A Char
lie Brown Christmas", Charlie Brown is strug
gling with Christmas. He is rejected as director
of the Christmas play and asked instead to get a
Christmas tree for the production. Charlie picks
a forlorn little tree that isn't much more than a
branch. Being ridiculed about the tree pushes
Charlie Brown over the edge and he finally
screams, "Would someone please tell me the true
meaning of Christmas?!!" Linus responds, "Sure,
Charlie Brown. I can tell you what Christmas is
all about." Linus steps forward and quotes the
Christmas story found in Luke 2:1-14.
This Christmas, may you listen for and experi
ence God's word and truth in every conversation,
in every song, and in every Christmas special you
watch!

Yes, There Really was a
Santa Claus!
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
Nicholas of Myra lived in the 3rd century, A.D.
He was a giver, and known for his gift-giving; a
real person with a strong commitment to helping
others. He would use his personal funds to help
the sick; and work to protect the young. He be
came a bishop in the early Church and stayed for
awhile near Bethlehem. He was imprisoned and
tortured for his Christian beliefs.
When he died in 343 A. D., he became an ex
ample for others and still remembered. That char
acter we commonly call "Santa Claus" (Saint or
Holy "Claus" or Nicholas) is the way our society
has recalled his giving, sharing, .. ... .ir.. acts of
protection to children, acts of love. The -'111 1...1
Saint Nicholas was born and probably lived the
early part of his life in what is now Turkey; not
the North Pole. He didn't have elves; but no doubt
was supported by those faithful clergy who fol
lowed his leadership and examples.
No octet of reindeer (the legends now have
nine, "Rudolf" added thanks to a musical tribute);
no doubt he had animal help to get from Turkey
to Bethlehem. The stories and legends change;
the lessons of the character of one of God's saints
does not change. When we really explore the dat
ing of Christmas, our choice of days isn't all that
exact. The dating isn't as important as welcome
ing of the Lord into the world; it's more important
to follow His example at this special time. Santa
Claus? The tradition lives on as it should. The sea
son of Christmas that is a few days away now is a
time to remember "Santa Claus" for who he really
was and what he really did. That's what Christ
mas is all about, anyhow! For a few days we'll
wish one another "Peace on Earth, Good Will
toward Men (and women too!)" Isn't that what
the holiday is really all about? Aren't the gifts re-
ally symbols and tributes to the great gift that God
has given us by sending His Son into this world?
Is this going to be another occasion just to have
some time off from a busy schedule, or is it going
to be a time of great thanksgiving, celebration, us
ing what God has given to us to share in helping
others have a better moment and better life? As I
go around to the different stores and displays that
have "Santa Claus" present, I can't help but reflect
on the real "Santa Claus" who is an example to us
all. May we know that person a little better each
time we see his modern image, be a bit more like
him, and honor the one he honored who came to
us at this time: the real gift-giver at Christmas.

Speak Out has moved online, where
it is quicker and easier to share your
ideas and converse with others. Go to
www.newszap.com, click on the com-
munity name and your local or state
Public Forum. There, you can create
new topics or comment on existing
topics. What follows is a sampling of
some of the discussions currently tak-
ing place. Thanks for participating!


Concerned with school safety
*As a concerned parent, I'm not pleased with
the lie that was given to me in regards to the
threat towards the principal at Central Elemen
tary School. My child came home the day of the
lock down frantic and scared. I asked her what
was wrong. She said that her teacher told her that
someone was trying to hurt the principal and they
had to stay on lock down for about 2 3 hours.
Wow! What happened to contacting parents at
least to make us aware of the problem? She did
not want to attend school the next morning, but
I told her, "It's going to be okay. Just pray for the
schools safety." She said, "Okay mom." The next
morning I called the school and spoke with a
staff member in the office and explained to her
what I was told by my child and she said, "O ev
erything is fine that was only a drill." Lie! Why?
The Clewiston News made sure it was noticed
by putting it on the front page. Why didn't CES
do the same?


Learn my language
*One of our big local stores has the worst
possible customer service anywhere I have ever


gone. I would rather drive out of town and go to
Publix or Target. The cashiers are rude if you can
find one that speaks English. The photo depart
ment is the worst. They do not know what they
are doing. I forgot my pictures after I downloaded
them and when I went to pick them up the girl
was very rude telling me I should not have left
them in the store that long. I said well someone
could have called was told she called personally
three times. Yet there was no messages on the
answering machine and their was not a call from
the local store that showed up on my caller I.D.
And when I mentioned this she called me a liar!
I would rather go to any other store in Clewiston
to buy what I need. Management needs to do
training on how to greet people (cashiers). You
are not doing me a favor by ringing up my items
if enough people stopped shopping there, you
would not have a job. And learn to speak English,
if you cannot speak English you should not be
working with the public. I still live in the United
States where English is the chosen language and
I'm not going to learn your language no matter
what it is ... Learn mine!


Local work unsatisfactory
*I know you advertise for people to shop at
home to keep what is here open but the prob
lem is getting quality work. I bought a $1,600
floor from a local furniture store to lay in my new
kitchen. The floor was not laid properly and I can
not get anyone from the store to call me back. If I
wanted the floor to look like my husband laid it, I
would have gone to Lowes to buy it for $600 and
had him to do. Instead, I wanted it to look like a
professional did it and that is what I paid for the
floor has all gone of bubbles in it where it is not
laying flat. Next time I will again, go out of town
to buy what I need or want.


Speak Out


The Clewiston Middle School boys basket
ball team, which was scheduled to start its 2010

ers who are fast and can shoot well." Eighth

both three-year players, will help guide the
team with their experience, while eighth grader


Melvin Lawson and seventh graders Davis Witt,
Tyrin Summers and Isaiah Jackson are returning
two-year players who will also add to our game
experience. We're anticipating a successful and
fun season."

year's squad. The newcomers include eighth
graders Shamar Gorden, Carlos Bryant, Markevi
ous Allen, Johntavious Cooks, Keyshon Johnson

Library To Host 'Lewis And Clark' Traveling Exhibition


BY ERIC TOMMERDAHL
Clewiston Library Director

"Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country,"
a traveling exhibition opening at the Clewiston
Public Library on Thursday, December 30, 2010
tells the story of the explorers' historic 1804-1806
expedition from a different point of view that of
the Indians who lived along their route. During
their journey to the Pacific coast and back, Meri
wether Lewis and William Clark and their small
group of voyagers crossed the traditional home
lands of more than 50 Native American tribes.
The exhibit examines this monumental encoun
ter of cultures and examines the past and present
effects of that encounter on the lives of the tribes
which still live in the region.
"What often gets lost in the story is that
Lewis and Clark did not explore a wilderness
they traveled through an inhabited homeland,"
says Frederick E. Hoxie, the exhibit's curator and
Swanlund Professor of History at the University of
Illinois at Urbana Champaign. "This expedition is
part of the history of the native peoples the ex
plorers met, and the exhibit offers us an oppor
tunity to understand an Indian perspective on our
shared American past."
The Blackfeet, Nez Perce, Umatilla, Mandan,
and Walla Walla are just a few of the Native Amer
ican nations encountered by Lewis and Clark in
the nineteenth century who continue to live in the
same area on greatly reduced tribal lands. These
tribes are committed to carrying on the lifeways
and values of their ancient cultures, and to up
holding their languages and traditions. "We are
still here," they often say.

library selected as a site for this exhibition, said
Library Director Eric Tommerdahl. "The story of
the Lewis and Clark expedition is well known
to most Americans, especially because of the
recent bicentennial celebrations, but the Native
American perspective on their voyage is not as
well known. It is important to understand that
although this great journey essentially opened
American eyes to the West and encouraged na


tional expansion, it also contributed to a dramatic
change in the well-established cultures of the In
dian tribes already living in the region."
In 1800, the Native American communities
along the path of Lewis and Clark were thriving.
Hunting, fishing, farming and commerce were
the foundations for tribal prosperity. Indians
provided vital assistance to the explorers -the
Voyage of Discovery most likely would not have


been the success it was without their aid. But by
1900, Native Americans found it almost impossi
ble to maintain their traditional lifeways. Mining,
homesteading, ranching and the fur trade had all
undermined the centuries-old traditions of the
Indian country. Smallpox decimated tribes and
"Americanization" campaigns sought to suppress
all aspects of traditional culture.
"Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country"
draws upon original documents in the rich Native
American collections of the Newberry Library,
and in the collections of the Washington State
Historical Society, the Minnesota Historical Soci
ety and other institutions. Photographs of hand
written documents, maps, paintings and draw
ings provide a colorful background for the story
of the encounter.
Organized by the Newberry Library, Chicago,
in cooperation with the American Library Asso
ciation (ALA) Public Programs Office, "Lewis and
Clark and the Indian Country" was made possible
by a major grant from the National Endowment
for the Humanities (NEH): great ideas brought to
life. Additional support came from the University
of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The Sara Lee
Foundation is the lead corporate sponsor; Ruth C.
Ruggles and the National Park Service also sup
ported the exhibit.
The library is sponsoring free programs and
other events for the public in connection with
the exhibition. Contact the library at 863-983

tion. "Lewis and Clark and the Indian Country"
will be on display at the library until Feb. 19.


Update on Cholera


BY PAT DOBBINS

Since the cholera epidemic in Haiti began
in October, there have been several-hundred
deaths in Haiti. The Florida Department of Health
(FDOH) officials in Tallahassee recently an
nounced a laboratory-confirmed case of cholera
in a Collier County woman who recently returned
from Haiti.
Florida has approximately 241,000 Haitian
born residents, which represents 46 percent of
the Haitian-born population residing in the Unit
ed States. Travel to and from Haiti has increased
since the Haitian earthquake; this includes Florida
residents visiting family in Haiti and relief work
ers. We can expect that some travelers returning
from Haiti will become ill with cholera after ar
rival in Florida.
There are no suspect cases of cholera in Hen
dry or Glades Counties at this time. The Hendry
and Glades County Health Departments are work
ing with healthcare partners in the community to
closely monitor this situation.
Cholera is an acute diarrheal disease caused
by infection of the intestine with the bacterium
Vibrio cholerae. The infection is often mild or
without symptoms, but illness sometimes can be
severe. In severe cases, the infected person may
experience profuse watery diarrhea and vomit
ing which can cause rapid loss of body fluids and
lead to dehydration and shock. Without treat
ment, death can occur within hours.
A person can get cholera by drinking water or
eating food contaminated with the cholera bacte


rium. The potential for spread in the United States
is extremely low, because U.S. water, sanitation,
and food systems minimize the risk for fecal con
tamination of food and water. Person-to-person
transmission is rare. During the Latin American
epidemic in the early 1990s, about 20 cases of
cholera in travelers occurred in Florida with no
local spread.
Despite the low potential for cholera spread
ing within the U.S, the Florida Department of
Health (FDOH) wants to ensure that high-risk
situations, such as cholera in a food-handler or
clusters of illness are identified and those affected
are provided medical treatment. Suspected cases
of cholera should be reported immediately to
County Health Departments by doctors, hospitals
and laboratories, without waiting for laboratory
confirmation.
Travelers who develop severe, watery diar
rhea, or diarrhea and vomiting, within 5 days
after returning from Haiti, should seek medical
attention immediately. Most hospital and private
laboratories can identify cholera, but health care
providers should request that stool specimens
from suspected cases be cultured for the isolation
of cholera.
Family members and caretakers of ill travel
ers returning from Haiti should wash their hands
frequently as they may be at risk of contracting
cholera if handling the traveler's vomit or feces.
FDOH advisories and guidance and additional
information from the Centers for Disease Con
trol and Prevention (CDC) are available at http://
www.doh.state.fl.us/diseasectrl/epi/Acute/chol
era.htm.

Hendry County Chief Deputy
Kevin Nelson Graduates
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Insti
tute announces the graduation of Hendry County
Chief Deputy Kevin Nelson from the Chief Execu
tive Seminar at the Florida Department of Law En
forcement (FDLE) in Tallahassee, Fla. The gradu
ates represent criminal justice agencies around
the state who serve in a leadership role within
their agency.
"Chief Nelson is a fine example of the type of
leadership needed to assist in guiding the Hendry
County Sheriff's Office in a positive and progress
sive manner," said Hendry County Sheriff Steve
Whidden. "This class is an example of the type of
training our employees and staff are receiving".
Chief Kevin Nelson was hired in January 2009
as Road Patrol Lieutenant supervising Patrol Ser
geants and deputies. He was promoted to the po
sition of Chief Deputy in July 2009. As Chief Dep


uty, he is the senior most manager immediately
below the Sheriff and in the absence of the Sheriff
assumes command of the department.
He started his career in law enforcement in
August 1980 as an auxiliary deputy with the Col
lier County Sheriff's Office, becoming a full-time
deputy in April 1981. Chief Nelson retired in No
member 2004 at the rank of Captain. He has been
a resident of LaBelle since 2003.
He is involved in the community and has
served as Past Master for the LaBelle Masonic
Lodge, Past President of the Rotary Club of La
Belle, member of the Board of Directors for the
LaBelle Chamber of Commerce and member of
the First Baptist Church of LaBelle.
The seminar met for one week each month
for three months at FDLE's Headquarters in Talla
hassee. Graduates took classes on topics such as
demography, budgeting, legacy leadership, eth
ics, and implementing strategic change.
The goal of the Chief Executive Seminar is to
prepare Florida's Criminal Justice leadership for
the challenging and changing demands of the
future. Class participants study trends and events
that may affect criminal justice professionals and
the state and develop new leadership skills to ad
dress and manage the changes that lie ahead.
The Florida Criminal Justice Executive Insti
tute, established within the Florida Department
of Law Enforcement and affiliated with the State
University System, was established in 1990 by the
Florida Legislature who recognized the need for
an innovative and multifaceted approach to the
education and training of criminal justice profes
sionals.
Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden stated,
"I look forward to our continued partnership as
Chief Nelson and I continue working toward lead
ing the Hendry County Sheriff's Office forward
and striving toward the betterment of our agency
for our community."
Deputies Arrest Five In Early Morning Bur
glary
In the early morning hours of Nov. 30, Hendry
County Sheriff's Office received a call from a resi
dent in Port LaBelle reporting their home had just
been broken into.
The victims reported being asleep when they
heard someone enter one of the bedrooms. The
occupant of the bedroom spoke with one of the
young men believing him to be his brother. When
the suspect left the room quickly the victim fol
lowed him noticing three individuals exiting the
rear of their home.
When deputies responded to the residence,
the homeowner reported a flat screen television
to be missing and were able to provide pertinent
information to assist in identifying the stolen
property.
While en route one of the deputies stopped a
1999 White Chevrolet SUV driven by 18 year old
Jose Angel Aguilar and occupied by four other in
dividuals. Deputies located a flat screen television
in the rear of the vehicle which was identified by
the victim's of the residence.

Arrest Blotter


Arrest For Not Wearing
Glasses Leads to Drugs
Officers conducting a traffic stop at West Az
tec on Nov. 20 placed Fernando Perez, 22, un
der arrest for not wearing his glasses. Fernando
Perez and Juan Longoria, 23, were pulled over by
Clewiston Police Department for going 65 miles
per hour in a 35 miles per hour zone. Upon ob
training Perez's license, the officers noticed that
his license contained a restriction which requires
him to wear glasses when he operates a motor
vehicle. When asked questioned about his glass
es Perez responded that he wears glasses but
chose not to wear them. Since it was a criminal
infraction, Perez was placed under arrest. While
checking his pockets, deputies discovered a bag
gy filled with a white powdery substance. Officers
deployed Javier, a German Shepherd patrol dog
to search the vehicle for narcotics. Javier alerted
the officers to the inside of the car where three
more baggies were discovered. The contents of
the baggies tested positive for cocaine. Both Perez
and Longoria were arrested for cocaine posses
sion. Perez has an extra charge for violating li
cense restriction.

'Lookin Forward To Doing It


Again Sometime'
Two teens were re
sponsible for more than
$1,000 dollars of property
damage at the Clewiston
Golf Course on Saturday.
Clewiston Police Depart
ment received a call from
the golf course that two
of their golf carts had
been damaged and those
responsible were no
where to be found. The
two young males, as they
were described, gave
their first names when
renting the golf cart as
"Emanuel" and "Ryan."
There were security
cameras and their vid
eos were reviewed. The
break in the case came in
the form of the suspect's
Facebook status update
which read "Sorry for all
the damages Clewiston


Ryan Hubbard


Emanuel Ibieta-
torremendia


golf course... looking forward to doing it again
sometime."
The status was reportedly written by 18-year
old Ryan Hubbard, of Moore Haven. Sgt. Tito
Nieves Jr. of Glades County Sheriff's Office was
contacted and went out to Hubbard's house to
ask if Hubbard would return to Clewiston to talk
with police. The suspect confessed and gave the
name of his friend, Emanuel Ibietatorremendia,
18, as the other person involved. They both said
that they were goofing around with the golf carts
when Emanuel rear-ended Hubbard's cart, being
distracted by his cell. They panicked after see
ing the damage and left the course in Hubbard's
truck.

'Pokie' Arrested
Hendry County Sher
iff's responded to a dis
pute in Harlem on Nov.
27. The complainant
said that "Pokie," a.k.a
Leonard Moorer, was in
his car and had his keys.
"Pokie" denied these
claims yet was arrested
on probable cause. The
actual owner of the car Leonard Moorer
had also not seen Moorer
in her car, 1 ,.;,._0. l I., i.,
A friend of Moorer's said
that it was someone named TJ from Belle Glade
who had been inside the car and took the keys.
TJ wanted to steal the speakers and stereo equip
ment later that night. His whereabouts are still
unknown.

'I Don't Have a Name'
A deputy for Hendry County Sheriff's encoun
tered a man "with no name" on Nov. 27. The
driver, later identified as Eric Douglas Sanders,
41, was highly intoxicated in his parked car be
hind the Azteca Market. The officer had to shake

Mark Renz presents 'Florida Fossils'


BY BUTCH WILSON
Clewiston Museum
Mark Renz, a paleontologist and former resi
dent of Clewiston is presenting a program on
Florida fossils at the Clewiston Museum, Decem
ber 2nd, 2010 at 7:00 p.m. His fossil discoveries
will reveal a "Time F.. II, *-. "' as he takes us back
in Florida's past to the days when prehistoric ani
mals once roamed and ruled.
Mark's passion for fossils began unknowingly
during a fishing trip on the Caloosahatchee River.
The fish weren't biting, so Mark becoming bored,
scouted the river bank and to his surprise discov
ered fossils. He was smitten and started i. .- -6.:
all his spare time to fossil hunting.
He later met a wonderful and talented person,
Marisa, who became the apple of his eye. She de
veloped the same great passion for Florida's past
as Mark, which eventually lead the two to start
"Fossil Expeditions," a fossil river guide service.
Since then, Mark and Marisa have guided thou
sands of eager clients on fossil trips down beauti
ful, scenic waterways.


The couple's quest for fossils would lead them
to other trails of discovery. Marks passion for fos
sils took him to literary avenues, publishing six
books on fossils, some beautifully illustrated by
his wife, Marisa, whose art brings visions of pre
historic Florida to life on canvas.
Mark and Marisa believe strongly in sharing
their fossil finds for the greater public good. The
Clewiston Museum now has a great fossil exhibit
because of their philosophy and generous atti
tude. Through the efforts of Mark, Marisa and vol
unteers, the museum's fossil exhibit is filled with
the fossil bones, pictures and paintings of giant
creatures that once swim or walked down Sug
arland highway.
Bring your family or friends and join us at the
Clewiston Museum for a delightful evening with
this couple. There will be refreshments after the
presentation and a book signing. The program
and refreshments are free, so don't miss this great
opportunity. Seating is limited, so please contact
the Clewiston Museum at 863-983-2870 or e-mail
us at clewistonmuseum@embarqmail.com for
reservations.
