Mourning tragedies on 27
Friends and family of a man who died while attempting to cross the street on Sugarland Hwy. left flowers for him. Two
accidents on U.S. 27 this week claimed two lives. Law enforcement officials are urging residents to be wary on the
road.



Highway Accident Claims Local Student


BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
Friends, family, and even residents who never
got a chance to meet him, honored Mason Cole at
a funeral service on Tuesday. First Baptist Church
in Clewiston may have had more high school stu
dents in its building than the high school at the
same time students were allowed to leave early
to attend the services for its former student.
Mason Cole, an 18-year-old recent Clewis
ton High School graduate, was killed tragically
this week on U.S. 27. The news has gripped the
community, with students writing messages on
the windows of their cars urging others to "stay
strapped." Some cars simply read, "R.I.P. Ma
son." The passionate outcries of the students,
well-intended but misinformed, took shape in the


8 16 510 0 0020


stop signs throughout the city that were
painted over to remind drivers of the
tragedy.
According to information released
by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, the accident happened ap
proximately 10 miles north of South
Bay. It happened at 8:10 a.m. on
Dec. 2. According to the report re
leased by Investigator Gary Pace,
Mason's Chevy SUV was travel
ing behind Eleanor Brown's
Toyota sedan on U.S. 27. The
report states that the SUV . -4
veered into the sedan, over cor
reacted and overturned. The report
mentions that the other vehicle also
overturned.
The driver of the Toyota suffered only minor
injuries and was transported to Lakeside Medical
Center in Belle Glade. Mason suffered fatal inju
ries.
What the report doesn't mention is what fam-


ily members considered the most after the
accident: Mason was headed to school in
Fort Lauderdale, where he was studying
to become a fire fighter.
The day after the accident, Tara, Ma
son's mother, remembered her son. The
last time she saw him, he was head
ed out of the door because he
had a big test he had studied
for: on infectious disease.
"He's a good kid," she
said in the present tense,
smiling when asked about
him. Later, slowly, she cor
rected herself. "He was
special. We were lucky to
have him in our lives."
Even after having gone to
the funeral home to finalize the details of her
son's funeral, the news still seemed to be too big

Push Unveiled


Gateway to the Everglades
brand presented to cities

BY BRENDA BUNTING
Special to The Clewiston News
Struggling for years to enhance eco-tourism
and market the region, communities on the
southern shores of Lake Okeechobee now have
a new marketing/branding incentive to help in
these efforts.
Approximately 100 residents and community
leaders gathered at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts
Center last week for the unveiling of a new video
and brochures highlighting the southern lake's
attractions in Glades, Hendry and Palm Beach
County. They also viewed the new branding logo
titled, "The Southern Shores of Lake Okeechobee
Gateway to the Everglades."
According to Robin Lankton, director of mar
keting for the Collins Center, this video will be
used in the marketing efforts throughout the Unit
ed States and Canada. "Two 30-second television
spots will also appear in the U.S. and Canada on
the Scott Martin Challenge on the World Fishing
Network beginning in the first quarter of 2011,"
she said.
Sponsored by the Lake Okeechobee Regional
Initiative, (LORI) and underwritten by the Collins
Center for Public Policy, Lankton says the market
ing push has already begun with distribution of
brochures in place in five Visit Florida Welcome
Centers, hotels and restaurants from Port Char
lotte to Everglades City.
The brochure lists the counties and their at
tractions and a map of Lake Okeechobee and a
new web site: LakeOBigWater.com.
"Beginning in January, we will be distributing
at the Florida Turnpike Welcome Centers. Cable
television spots will begin on the east and west
coast of Florida beginning in late January through
early March that will target outdoor enthusiasts,"
says Lankton.
This new initiative has gained widespread
support from the cities around the lake, including
the mayors of Belle Glade, Pahokee, South Bay,
and Clewiston, who were in attendance at the un
veiling ceremonies.
Belle Glade Mayor Steve Wilson said he was
"Absolutely astounded by the video," and ex
plained that the Glades area needs this promo
tion. "This is a great marketing piece that we have
lacked," he said.

ago, their organization held the first Winter Won

snow to Clewiston. Last year, they were able to
bring in 40 tons of snow. There are many children
in this community who have grown up in sunny
Florida and may not have had a chance to experi
ence snow.
Their main goal this year is to be able to host
another Winter Wonderland Festival this Christ
mas. They have held many fund raisers this year
to try and raise the funds for this event including,
Clewiston's House of Horrors this Halloween.
The success of this event can only be accom
polished with the help of our local businesses and
community members. They ask i, ii .... help by
supporting them as we they allocate the funds
needed to make this event a success, as of now
they are still falling short of their goal to make this
years event possible.
They hope to raise enough money to be able
to make this event bigger and better than ever. If
anyone is interested in learning more about their
organization or how they can contribute, please

The Incomparable Christ
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
As Christmas draws near, it is important that we
remember that Jesus Christ came from the bosom
of the Father to the bosom of a woman. He put
on humanity that we might put on divinity. He be
came the Son of Man that we might become Sons
of God. He was born in a supernatural way, lived
in poverty, reared in i ..... ;1- Only once crossed
the boundary of the land, in childhood. He had no
wealth nor influence and no ( .ii. I i. i. i. ,li.....yet
the profound wisdom of men has never equalled
His last discourse in John 13 to 17 and the Sermon
on the Mount. Never has man spoken like this
man. His relatives were inconspicuous and not in
fluential. In infancy He startled a king; in boyhood
He puzzled the doctors, even at 12 years of age He
was far in advance of the theologians, for He was
taught of God. He healed the multitudes without
medicine and did not charge for His services.
He never wrote a book, yet libraries could not
hold the books that have been written about Him.
He never wrote a song, yet He has furnished the
theme of more songs than all song writers com-
bined. He never founded a college, yet all the
schools It ,. ii cannot boast of as many students
as He has. He never marshalled an army, drafted a
soldier nor fired a gun, yet no leader made more
volunteers, who have under His orders made reb
els stack arms or surrender without a shot being
fired. He conquered death, rose after three days as
He said He would, ascended into Heaven, is now
at the right hand of the throne of God, and will
one day come in the clouds of Heaven with power
and great glory for His own born-again, blood
bought ones to be forever with Him according to
promises, after which He will judge the world in
righteousness, when every knee shall bow to Him
and every tongue shall confess Him as Lord -His
friends gladly, but His enemies reluctantly, seeking
for a place to hide from His face (Rev. 6:15).
The ever Perfect One -He is the Chief among
ten thousand, the only One who can satisfy the
soul and give ,i ii ... Life to those who have
it not. He is Altogether Lovely, and He is my very
own Savior.

Death Can Take A Holiday
BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS
First United Methodist Church
Each of us is put here on earth to learn, share,
love, appreciate, and give of ourselves. None of us
knows when this incredible journey will end, but it
can come to an end at any moment. Perhaps this
is God's way of telling us that we need to make
the most out of every single day. It's important for
us not to take for granted those things and people
precious to us. It's important for us make a special

effort to cherish them and love on them as much
as we can when we can, for life is precious and
there are no guarantees of tomorrow.
Over a short period of time, our community has
experienced a number of losses. Young men, taken
before their time, who were with us one day and
gone the next. It's always hard for parents to bury
a child. The death of a child seems to violate the
natural order of things. But so does the loss of a
husband and father and grandfather, a mother and
grandmother, especially when the parting is unex
pected. Death can take a holiday. One of the most
difficult aspects to deal with is the reality that the
person will never again be part of family life. Holi
days exasperate this. But we can't let death win.
Grieving is like a wound that needs time to
heal, and everyone heals at different rates, but fac
ing the grief can be the best medicine toward heal
ing. Each contribution helps in finding a new sense
of purpose while keeping the loved one's memory
alive. Letting people be there in whatever way they
are is also an important part of this healing pro
cess. A friend called me during a time I was going
through a period of grief, sharing, "John, we don't
know what to do for you. If you want to be alone,
we will give you space. If you want company, we
will be there. Regardless, we want you to know we
love you." Knowing I had friends who cared for me
and were there for me helped me get through the
holidays and realize healing, even if I didn't always
avail myself with their offer.
This year, some friends and family will be hold
ing Christmas without a loved one. Their faith and
their memories and the love shared by friends and
neighbors are the gifts that will help them through
the holidays. Let us be the Christ-light for them in
their darkness. Let us weep with them and laugh
with them and be there for them. We are here to
help each other on our journeys -to help walk the
mile and help bear the load.

Christmas; It's All About
Getting Ready First
BY REV SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
When it comes to the end, sometimes we will
never know. Usually, we can talk about begin
nings and celebrate them; baptism into a new
life in faith, birthdays beginning of a new life in
this world, the first day on the job, the first day of
school, the founding of a country, the birth of a
great hero. These are the days that bring memories
and traditions that bind us I .... i 1. The Christmas
story is also the story of a beginning. It is about
people who knew the day was coming and so they
prepared for it. People held onto the hope that
there would be a better world and that they might
live without fear. The earliest stories (e.g. Noah -)
are about knowing in faith that there would be dif
ficulties to transgress but God would be with the

faithful, and to get ready for the blessings and gift
of life to come. We prepare for new additions to
our homes, for a career, for marriage, people pre
pare for new societies. That time is well spent; get
ting ready is really a part of the day to come. The
Church marks the season before Christmas, known
as "Advent" in many traditions (a word that means
"before ......... in getting ready for the Nativity
celebrations that herald in new life. There is a cer
tain oneness about preparing and .. 1. i .1 iiii;-, one
completes the other and makes the special time
more special than it would be otherwise. The end
of time? It is not ours to know (Matthew 24:36ff)
even the Lord Himself didn't know (or worry about
it!). The end may be only a part of our preparation
for it. I see that .1 ..ii,,i i in the advent season
as well as all of our days here on this earth. It is
all about getting ready, and then .. 1 i. i.i ... what
has been promised. I like to prepare for Christmas
because it makes the day more special; choosing
the right gifts for special people, working on what
is to be shared in Church to bring a special wor
ship experience to others who share it with me,
reminiscing and preparing the "annual newsletter"
shared with family and friends and mailing them in
time for the season's celebrations in their parts of
the world, looking forward to knowing with them
that this time is special in their lives too. Christ
mas isn't about one day only; it's about the days
before. Now, we are about two weeks away from
that special day; and the time is now to "invest"
in it by our planning for the coming of the Lord in
our own ways. In spite of the dark times that pre
ceded Jesus' coming; people nevertheless knew
that their faith and preparation for a new day was
not wasted. Same thing today; faith is never finally
betrayed, hope is never ultimately disappointed in
spite of all that seems dark. May we live these days
of preparation in hope; and prepare to celebrate
His coming once more.

Lake Okeechobee Weekly Fishing Report


Cold Weather in Full Force
and Fish Are Still Biting

BY MARK KING
The cool northern weather has finally made
it to South Florida; not sure if it followed the
snowbirds or what but it is here. One good thing
though is that it hasn't effected the bass fishing
here on Okeechobee.
I was gone most of last week to pro staff
meetings at Ranger Boats in Flippin Arkansas and
when I got back and went out on the lake on a
guide trip my clients caught some really nice bass
including an eight-pound hog.
Lake Okeechobee is one awesome lake and
there are bass to be caught somewhere on the
lake at all times.
The lake level is at 12.79 feet above sea level
and seems to be going down a little almost ev
ery day. We are at a great lake level now but we


don't need to let any more out of the lake for this
time of the year. I just don't understand why it is
so hard for South Florida Water Management to
manage the water here in Lake Okeechobee; it
seems like every year it is a problem either too
much water or not enough.
The bigger bass seem to be still staged on the
outside grass line in most areas and if the water
isn't to dirty from the wind blowing than this is
where I would fish. If the water seems to dirty
than move back in the grass till the water starts
to clear up some.
Some of the good areas this week have been
Coots Bay, East Wall, the Shoal up around Ob
servation Island area, Long Point, and the Horse
Island area. If the wind is blowing too hard than
the dynamite holes and the rim canal have plenty
of bass and some really nice ones are still being
caught.
Wild shiners have been working great on the
outside grass lines and the bigger the shiner the


better, the small shiners and domesticated shiners
are not working very well. This is one case where
bigger is definitely better. For artificial lures I have
been using Gambler Big EZ swimbaits and Reac
tion Innovation Skinny Dippers. Just buzz these
baits over the grass and be ready for a violent
strike, also be rigged up with heavy braided line
and extra strong hooks like the ones I use from
TroKar.
The only other lure that I have been using is
a Gambler Ace rigged weightless or with a 1/16
screw in weight when the wind blows, junebug
seems to be the best color.
I was I.ii i. i-i. I to spend a few days last week
at the Ranger Boats factory in Flippin Arkansas
where I spent some time in pro staff meetings and
also got to see a couple new model boats for this
year. There is a new 18-foot boat the Z518 that is
a tournament rigged bass boat that is affordable
for everyone and a new 22 foot bay boat the 220
Bahia that is rated for a 150 horse motor that will


fit anyone's budget. Stop by Roland Martin's Ma
rine Center in Clewiston for more information on
these boats or the whole Ranger boat line. There
is no finer built boat on the market for both fresh
water and saltwater.
The crappie fishing has still been pretty good
with the rim canal, Harney Pond Canal, Point of
the Reef, and Kissimmee River all good places to
try. There are a couple of great tournaments this
weekend out of Clewiston, on Saturday the Toys
for Kids tournament and on Sunday the no entry
fee Gambler Baits tournament.
Stop by Roland Martin's Marine Center for
more information on these tournaments. Until
next week good luck, tight lines and hope to see
everyone out on the lake.

Dear Jesus
Christmas is near as I am sure you know, But in South Florida the winds briskly blow. On this your birthday month,
could you please, Send us some heat to warm our unworthy feet? You designed the earth with an amazing insight, But
it froze my flowers down here last night. In closing, sweet Jesus, here is my humble plea, Please send some sunshine
down here to me. Amen!! Poem by Ron Joseph




Poem Dedicated to Mason Lee Cole


Eyes so bright,
Like the oceans blue.
A smile that shined,
From me to you.
Hair the glowed,
Like a sunlit meadow.
No matter who you were,
He always said "Hello."
Sweet like sugar,
Wild like a horse,
Never looked back,
Faced the future full force.
Love for his friends,
That reached higher than the mountain tops.
A love for his family,
That could never be stopped.

FHP: Victim walked into the
path of a vehicle on U.S. 27

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
A second person lost his life on U.S. 27 this
week, a week punctuated by the two tragedies.
On Dec. 3, at approximately 6 p.m., local man
Bipinchandra A. Patel, 67, walked what accord
ing to family members was his routine, just about
to cross Sugarland Hwy. in front of the Kentucky
Fried Chicken restaurant, when officials say he
walked into the path of an oncoming vehicle.
According to a report released by the Florida
Highway Patrol, the victim of the accident either
was unable to avoid, or did not see, a vehicle that
was being driven by Johnny Jones, 58, of Clewis
ton. Jones was driving a 2002 Mercury Grand
Marquis, and was westbound on Sugarland Hwy.


The Tigers have lost the last games two games by
a total of three points. Please continue to come
and support your Tigers. We are a young team
and we will get better each practice and each
game.


in the left turn lane when the accident occurred.
Trooper Travis Parks, FHP's crash investigator
assigned to the incident, wrote that Mr. Patel at
tempted to cross "in an area where it is illegal to
do so."
As a result of the investigation, Mr. Jones, who
did not suffer any injuries in the accident, was not
charged that night. According to the FHP report,
he will not be charged.
Mr. Patel was transported to Hendry Regional
Medical Center in Clewiston, where he died as a
result of his injuries.
The incident is similar to another just weeks
before, when a child walked onto the path of an
other vehicle. In that case, the driver was driving

tried to ignore his brother but ii... i, i' .,,, him
when he took a knife from the kitchen and began
to threaten him by saying, "Do you wanna die?"

On Friday night, Dec 3, between the hours
of llp.m. and 3 a.m. Saturday morning, Dec. 4,
Sheriff Steve Whidden, and Hendry County Sher
iff's Office Deputies assisted by the Department of
Transportation conducted a DUI Sobriety Check
point near the intersection of Case Road and State

that he had smoked all he had, about one gram. A
search of him and his vehicle turned up no drugs
or weapons. He was then asked to go through
the Field Sobriety Exercises and failed all three of
them. He was then placed under arrest for driving
under the influence.

Suspicious Manner
Clewiston PD's Det. Taylor was attracted by
suspicious activity of a nervous driver on Dec.
2. Taylor was heading east on Ventura when he
recognized an oncoming vehicle suddenly turn
in front of his unmarked car onto Central Ave.
The vehicle quickly pulled into a nearby parking
space. Taylor followed, his attention fully grabbed
by this suspicious activity. The driver, 20-year-old
Charlie Wright, had every reason to be nervous.
Det. Taylor had warned him in a previous stop


that he could not
drive due to hav
ing a suspended
license and that
if he were caught
again, he would be
arrested. Wright's
girlfriend was also
present in the vehi
cle and knew about
Wright's suspended
license. She was is
sued a ticket for
allowing Wright to
drive. Wright was Charlie Wright
arrested for driving
with a suspended
license and being a habitual offender. Wright's
reason for driving that day was that he needed to
get batteries.

Pahokee Mayor JP Sasser says he is very
pleased with the final results. "I think it portrays
the Glades in a way that shows how our area is
unique," he said.
Perception is everything when you're trying
to market something, and no one knows that
better than Phil Bacon. Bacon, vice president of
Neighborhood and Regional Initiatives for the
Collins Center says, "Our goal has been to help
the stakeholders in the area understand that their
economic destiny is tied to one another and that,
collectively, each community stands to gain if the
entire region becomes an attractive place to live
and invest." He added, "Our collaboration has
and will center on these issues."
Partners in the efforts by LORI and the Collins
Center include the South Florida Water Manage

LORI group, which is made up of representatives
from Pahokee to Moore Haven, has been working
on several issues over the past couple of years,
including the continuation of the Palm Tran bus
route from Belle Glade to Clewiston, improving


the intersection of S.R. 80 and U.S. 27 and pro
curing and distributing maps showing the infra
structure, land and water resources in the area
and helping the Florida Rural Area Construction
Cooperation (FRACC) create jobs.
Clewiston Mayor Mali Gardner lauds the pro
motional video and brochures and says, "This is
a great opportunity for additional support for the
Glades communities in promoting our region.
Most importantly, for me, this is the right time for
the Glades community to welcome people from
across the state, the U.S. and the world."

A cold weather system from Canada brought chilly temperatures to South
Florida last week. Some areas of the Glades recorded temperatures in the
upper 20s, bringing concern that local farms may suffer damages from the
freeze. Over the next few weeks, local farmers will be gauging those losses
with certainty.

Mason is what everyone wanted to remember
most.
"He had a funny laugh. A goofy laugh," said
another one of his friends, Alex Bentancor. "I
don't know anyone who has a bad memory of
him."
The friends said it felt like Mason was still
here.
Perhaps the single consolation that Mason's
mother has is the old habit she and he had of al
ways saying "I love you."
"We told each other that every day, coming
and going," she said.
They would be her final words to her son.
"See you tonight," she told Mason right before
he left the house. "Love you."
