Cold events


result in


major losses

Farmers gauge their losses

BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA
The Clewiston News
For the second week in a row, farming in the
Glades has proven an unnerving proposition.
Cold events in South Florida have threatened
crops throughout the area, devastating acres of
farmland in the Belle Glade area, while keeping
farmers in Clewiston on watch.
With forecasters predicting major cold snaps
bringing sub-30 degree temperatures for ex
tended hours, farmers dispatched helicopters to
their fields -last week this resulted in three heli
copters going down in the Glades. Some farmers
kept watch overnight, losing hours of sleep while
checking thermometers at each of their fields.
Others resigned themselves to the fact that
Nature would have its way despite farmers' pro
testations.
"Stress is not a critical thing with me," said
Roger Hatton, who owns several smaller farms
spread out from Clewiston to Canal Point. "I'm
pretty much at peace most of the time."
Mr. Hatton grows green beans, sweet corn,
celery and sugarcane at his farms. His farms west
of Clewiston this week went down to a low of 25
briefly, settling into five hours of 27-degree tem
peratures. It was too cold to do anything at these
farms, so no helicopters flew and he sustained
losses to his green bean crop.
"To what extent you can't really tell for a
week," he explained, adding that he expected
"significant damage."
Judy Sanchez, speaking for U.S. Sugar, report
ed temperatures on Tuesday of mainly 28 to 30 de
grees at their locations, with some areas dipping
into the 25 and 26-degree range, but not for a

Holiday Health and Safety Tips for the Family


Helpful Tips Will Keep This
Holiday Season Fun and
Safe

BY PAT DOBBINS
Hendry/Glades County Health Departments
The holidays are a time to celebrate, give
thanks, and reflect. They are also a time to pay
special attention to your health and the health of
your family. Give the gift of health and safety by
following these holiday tips.
Watch the kids: Keep your children with you
at all times while you are shopping. Accompany
and supervise your children in public facilities
and rest rooms.
Have a plan in case you become separated. If
your kids are old enough to understand, have a
pre-designated spot to r .. i i;i ....1 get separated.
Teach children to look for people who can
help, such as a uniformed security officer, sales
person or even a mother with children. Remind
children to remain in the area where they be
come separated.
Kid safety: Keep a watchful eye on your kids
when they're eating and playing. Keep potentially
dangerous toys, food, drinks, household items,
choking hazards (like coins and hard candy), and
other objects out of kids' reach. Learn what to do
for children who are choking. Make sure toys are
used properly.
Wash your hands often: Keeping your hands
clean is one of the most important steps you can
take to avoid getting sick and spreading germs to
others.


Wash your hands with soap and clean run
ning water for at least 20 seconds. If soap and
clean water are not available, use an alcohol
based product.
Stay warm: Cold temperatures can cause se
rious health problems, especially in infants and
older adults. Stay dry, and dress warmly in several
layers of loose-fitting, tightly woven clothing.
Manage stress: The .b.i;. i ,. .i. I i . .1 to take
a toll on your health. Be aware of your actions, try
not to over commit or over spend.
Try to balance your work, home, and play. Get
support from your family and friends. Try to keep
a relaxed and positive outlook.
Travel safely: '1`1 li i .... ii' traveling across
town or around the world, keep safety in mind.
DO NOT drink and drive, and don't let someone
else drink and drive.
Wearaseatbelt 1i111 .... driveorridein
a motor vehicle. Always buckle your child in the
car using a child safety seat, booster seat, or seat
belt according to their height, weight, and age.
Be smoke-free: Avoid smoking and breathing
other people's smoke. If you smoke, quit today!
Call 1-800-QUIT NOW or talk to your health care
provider for help.
Get check-ups and vaccinations: Exams and
screenings can help find problems before they
start. They can also help find problems early,
when the chances for treatment and cure are bet
ter.
Vaccinations help prevent diseases and save
lives. Schedule a visit with your health care pro
vider for a yearly exam. Ask what vaccinations
and tests you should get based on your age,
lifestyle, travel plans, medical history, and family
health history.








The offices of the Hendry
County Board of County
Commissioners, Hendry

Thursday, December 23,
2010 and Friday,

offices will re-open for
regular hours on Monday,

Prevent injuries: Injuries can occur anywhere
and some often occur around the holidays. Use
step stools instead of furniture when hanging
decorations. Leave the fireworks to the profes
sionals. Wear a bicycle helmet to help prevent
head injuries.
Fire Safety: Most residential fires occur during
the winter months. Keep candles away from chil
dren, pets, walkways, trees, and curtains. Never
leave fireplaces, stoves, or candles unattended.
Don't use generators, grills, or other gasoline or
charcoal burning devices inside your home or
garage. Install a smoke detector and carbon mon
oxide detector in your home. Test them once a
month, and replace batteries twice a year.
Handle and prepare food safely: As you pre
pare holiday meals, keep you and your family
safe from food-related illness. Wash hands and
surfaces often.
Avoid cross-contamination by keeping raw
meat, poultry, seafood, and eggs (including their
juices) away from ready-to-eat foods and eating
surfaces.
Cook foods to the proper temperature. Refrig
erate promptly. Do not leave perishable foods out
of the refrigerator for more than two hours.
Don't forget your pets! Protect pets from ra
bies: Pets are considered family members. Keep
them healthy and safe as well.

Lake Okeechobee Weekly Fishing Report


Temperatures Continue to
Drop as well as the Lake
Level

BY MARK KING
Looks like it is going to be another cool week
here on Lake Okeechobee with temperatures
dropping at night to near freezing. That's quite
cold for South Florida!
The bass fishing has been a little tough for
some but the winners in the Toys for Kids tour
nament on Saturday had a five bass limit that
weighed 20 pounds and with over one hundred
and sixty boats in the Gambler Baits tournament
on Sunday it took over 22 pounds to win.
The Toys for Kids tournament was a great
success with lots of new toys to be given to the
Clewiston Police Department for local kids to en
joy on Christmas. It was great to see a lot of old


friends and to meet a lot of new ones this week
end at the tournaments.
The first thing I want to talk about this week
is the water level on Lake Okeechobee which is
at 12.68 feet above sea level and dropping every
day.
The lake is now at that level where you think
that it is still safe to run in a lot of areas but it
might not be.
The back trail across the West Wall and that
runs up the shoal does not have enough water in
them to run safely. These areas are all rock and
can destroy a gear case, prop, or boat and are not
worth taking the chance.
I just hope that South Florida Water Manage
ment will slow down the outflow of water on the
lake; we don't need to go into drought conditions
on the lake to save the estuaries on the coasts.
The fishing this past week was a hit and miss
deal with the worst weather days being my best
fishing days. With the lake level dropping the wa


ter on the outside grass line has remained fairly
clean and this seems to be where the bass are
staging in anticipation of moving back in to the
spawning areas.
The spawning bass may be a little hard to get
to this year with this water level dropping and
making it tough to get back into the spawning
flats.
My clients this week caught most of their bass
on lip less crank baits like the Spro Aruka Shad in
gold color that I throw and fishing a shakey head
in the rim canal and dynamite holes.
When we could fish the outside grass line a
Gambler 10" worm did the trick around isolated
reed heads. The wild shiners also worked great
along this outside grass line in Coots Bay, East
Wall, and around Ritta Island.
The bass seem to be moving around a lot and
when you catch one you will catch quite a few in
the same area. One other way to catch Okeecho
bee bass when the water cools off is to find a


heavy grass matt and flip a craw type soft plas
tic bait under the matt, this will sometimes take
a heavy weight to get through these mats like a
one or one and a quarter ounce weight. Usually
the bass you catch under these mats are pretty
good size.
The crappie fishing wasn't too good this past
week but a few were caught in the rim canal,
Uncle Joe's Cut and Harney Pond Canal. Both jigs
and minnows are working well.
I have gift certificates available for fishing both
here on Lake Okeechobee and for in the Florida
Keys during the spring and summer months,
what better Christmas gift to give someone than a
relaxing day on the water.
Until next week good luck, tight lines, stay
warm, and hope to see everyone on the water.

Advent: Redeeming The Time
BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+
Saint Martin's Church
Someone reported in a "Facts and Figures"
article the amount of time we spend waiting in
an average lifetime. I don't remember the exact
amount, ii ii ,. -1 i-,., ii.. In offices, in traffic,
waiting for something to dry/set/finish/recycle;
waiting is a fact of life. The military adage, "Hurry
up and wait" has pervaded our lives. Even "fast
food" requires some waiting for preparation. Ear
ly in my growing years, I learned never to say "I'm
bored." That comment usually brought a host of
suggestions of things I could do, and not all of
them were pleasing! I learned that I am respon
sible for my own amusement-filling time-keeping
myself busy finding my own things to do. As a re
suit, doctor's offices mean taking my own book,
long road trips mean listening to tapes or looking
for some worthwhile commentary, looking at the
newspaper as I wait for meals in restaurants, writ
ing sermons while waiting for an appointment
to show up, praying for a few minutes before a
worship service begins, reading when there is
nothing palatable on TV meditating before fall
ing asleep. I've learned to recognize when blocks
of time will be available, and then to fill them in
some useful way, and a way of my own choosing.
At times, doing something becomes improvised;
waiting for someone at an airport means observe
ing travelers and listening to their reflections so
I can plan better for my own next trip, stand
ing in line at a registration desk means an oppor
tunity to hear the difficulties of the person ahead
of me and preparing in advance how to overcome
them, being "on hold" on the phone means hav
ing a pad and paper nearby and outlining a letter
to be written when the call is over. Insofar as is in
my power, waiting is never boring, never wast
ed, never spent idly directed by something else,
never "a waste of time." The people who waited
for the Lord to come had kingdoms to develop,
wildernesses to conquer, cities to build, people to
choose as their leaders, and little time to be idle.
Paul writes "Be careful, then, how you live...mak
ing the most of every opportunity because the
days are evil (Ephesians 5:15-15)" His call to "re
deem the time" is a reminder to our opportunity
to be as economical with our time as with all of
our material resources. Now, we're in "the home
stretch" for Christmas, the fulfillment of what all
of our spiritual ancestors awaited. The remaining
time is for us to redeem, too. It is an opportu
nity to ask ourselves what we can do to make the
best use of the next week; "Lord, what wilt thou
have me to do?" Advent is about preparing for the
coming of the Lord; waiting is an active time and
not a time to sit by and do nothing. Seasons of the
Church year are full of life, activity, getting ready
and then celebrating. God only took time off to
rest when His work of creation was done!

Giving Can Make You Rich
BY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST
First Christian Church
Especially at Christmas time we need to realize
that giving can make you rich. Consider some of
the men who proved it. J. C. Penny, who founded
a chain of department stores, started to work as a
clerk in a general store, and the first day on the job
he had lunch with an old employee. He finished
eating and was on his way back to work when the
other man advised: "Don't be a sucker. Take you
time." Penny ignored this advice and instead of
giving as little and taking as much as possible, he
gave himself to his work. Within 60 days he was
made manager of the store, and he went on from
there to found the J. C. Penny stores. E. D. Bran


some president of Mack Trucks, wondered why
p. 1 ... li.i h .;. i, i ,, ,i ; .. i trucks. Then he dis
covered his prospective customers' difficulty with
finding drivers and mechanics who could handle
the big oil-burning vehicles. So he decided to give
something away; he advertised free courses in
diesel maintenance. The first ad brought 3,000
applications. He expanded the service until free
courses were being offered in many cities and
sales of diesel trucks soared. The more you give,
the more you are bound to receive. The more you
give to you job, the more you will receive from
it, not only in material compensation, but also
in joy and satisfaction. Try to withhold from the
job, taking advantage of the situation to extend
the lunch hour or coffee break, and you'll be left
behind when the J. C. Penny's of the world go for
ward. Giving yourself to your work can make your
rich. If you want love and friendship you need to
give the same. If you want understanding, then
give understanding to others. Give whatever you
would like to receive and be sure that it will come
back to you in abundance. Withhold and you
will never have enough. Let love and goodness,
service, material resources flow out from you in
a never-ending stream, and you will always be
prosperous. Yes, giving makes you rich!

I'M FREE
Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or place;
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things too I will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me,
I'm with God now, I've been set free.

Glades Day Wins Second Consecutive Class 1B State Championship


Kelvin Taylor's 3 fourth-
quarter touchdowns five
overall help Gators stage
monster comeback

BY NAJI TOBIAS
Special to INI
The Glades Day Gators have seized the day
and the Class 1B title -once again.
In their Dec. 10 Class 1B championship game
against the Warner Christian (South Daytona)
Eagles, it took Glades Day all of its energy and
willpower to overcome a 21 0 first-half deficit and
muster a 42-35 victory.
Down almost the entire game, Glades Day
(10-4 overall) needed a late touchdown from
sophomore running back Kelvin Taylor (FHSAA
state record 44 carries, 248 yards, five touch
downs) and a clutch defensive interception from
Corey Garcia to seal the Gators seventh overall
state championship.
"We went into the locker room at halftime
with our heads up," Glades Day junior wide re
ceiver Steven Williams said. "No one had their
heads down. We scored late and they [Warner
Christian] kept us in the game. When you keep
a Gator in the game, we're going to fight and ex
ecute. And that's we did."
Williams, who caught an interception and
scored Glades Day's only receiving touchdown,
said the will to fight through adversity was a key
component to the 21 point comeback victory.
"Everybody has doubts in their mind," Wil
liams said. "But when you play for the Gators, it
means nothing to you."
Tied at 35-35 with 6:13 left in the fourth quar
ter, Glades Day's offensive line created holes
for Taylor to run through on the pivotal scoring
drive.
Taylor ran the ball right through the heart of
Warner Christian's defense for seven plays, as he
muscled his way to a 19-yard touchdown run that
put the Gators up for the first time with 2:20 left.
"The offensive line is incredible," Taylor said
of how the state title game turned out. "I just want
to thank God for them, all my teammates and the
coaching staff for getting me the ball."
On Warner Christian's final offensive posses
sion, Eagles quarterback Tyler Barron (4-for-9
passing, 117 yards, one touchdown, two inter
ceptions) threw a game-ending interception to
Garcia, who bobbled the ball and then secured it
at Glades Day's 15 yard line with just 1:27 left.

Glades Day's players, coaches, cheeleaders and support staff are in jubilation after overcom-
ing a 21-0 first half deficit to secure a 42-35 win over Warner Christian and their second con-
secutive Class 1B state title. This was the state's final Class 1B title game, as the FHSAA will
be realigning classifications beginning next season.


"I got strong faith in our defense," Taylor said
of Glades Day's final defensive stand, which in
cluded Garcia's pick. "They did it in the Jupiter
Christian game and I knew they would do it again
for us here."
Glades Day, who has won back to-back state
championships for the first time in its history,
scored five touchdowns in the second half after
being down 21-7 at halftime.
"It was just the first half," Taylor said. "I just
told my boys to keep going. We had two more
quarters to go. If we just stepped up on both sides
of the ball, I knew were going to come back."
In the early going, it was all Warner Christian as
running back Breon Allen (11 carries, 147 yards,
one touchdown) began the Eagles onslaught
with a 30-yard touchdown run. Later in the first
quarter, Barron completed an 80-yard touchdown
pass to Taylor Oldham for a 14-0 lead.
It was 21 0 in favor of Warner Christian after
Marcus Dixon (14 carries, 120 yards, and two
touchdowns) rushed his way in for a 14-yard
touchdown run with 8:11 left in the second quar
ter.
But Taylor and his offensive line weren't fazed
too much by the scoring deficit as he would make
good on a 24-yard touchdown run with 4:10 left
in the first half.
"As poorly as we played in the first half, I told
my guys that we were still in it," Glades Day head
coach Pete Walker said. "We just needed to start
moving people out of the way on offense and


start tackling on defense."
The second half scoring began with Taylor's
second rushing touchdown of the game -a 24
yard scoring run with 6:37 left in the third quar
ter.
With Warner Christian's lead now cut to 21
14, Oldham would score his second touchdown
just 21 second later -a 22 yard run that stretched
the Eagles lead to 28-14.
In Glades Day's attempt to open up the of
fense, they did just that as Gators junior quarter
back Tanner Redish (4-for-10 passing, 60 yards,
one touchdown) threw a nifty 28-yard touchdown
pass to Williams with 1:44 left in the third.
At that point, Warner Christian's lead was cut
to 28-21. That would be the score at the end of
the third quarter.
"We were finally able to cash in on a turn
over," Walker said of Glades Day's first of five
second-half touchdowns. "They [Warner Chris
tian] kept answering back, but we started feeling
like we owned the line of scrimmage. Their lines
were getting tired and we were able to wear them
down."
To start the fourth, Glades Day's offense need
ed just four plays -all runs -to tie the game up at
28-28 with 11:56 left. Taylor's 9-yard touchdown
run -his first of three in the fourth quarter -was
set up by a fumble recovery from Taylor Mann,
who scooped up the ball after Warner's Oldham
fumbled on a kickoff return toward the end of the
third quarter.


Warner Christian (13-1 overall) took a 35-28
lead in only three plays, thanks to a 25 yard kick
off return from Allen and a 60-yard touchdown
run from Dixon with 10:59 left.
Right after that, Glades Day's grit started to
shine right through the entire offense for the rest
of the game.
Taylor just kept plugging away at the heart of
Warner Christian's defensive line, as he churned
out seven runs of 56 yards on Glades Day's next
offensive series. The drive ended with Taylor
bursting through for a 14-yard touchdown run to
tie the game up at 35-all.
Following a three-and-out offensive series
from Warner's offense was Taylor's champion
ship-winning score that sealed the comeback.
"I'm sure glad he [Taylor] ran it in," Walker
said. "Our offensive line made a nice hole for him
and he capitalized on it."
With the win, Glades Day broke a three-way
tie with Glades Central and Pahokee -the two
powerhouse schools still have six state titles -to
move into sole possession of second place in FH
SAA history with seven. Only 10-time state cham-
pion Bolles (Jacksonville) has more.
"This one means everything to us," Walker
said. "When you look back at our season, it was
a great story about adversity and how to fight
through it. We had to do it all season long and the
kids never let up. They're the best group of play
ers I've ever coached in all my years of football."
NOTES: After Taylor's game-winning touch
down, the official ejected him from the game for
excessive celebration -a controversial call. Re
plays showed that Taylor simply kneeled down at
the end zone and pointed his index fingers to the
sky, thanking a higher authority.
Taylor tied the FHSAA state record with 110
total touchdowns for his high school football ca
reer. Only a sophomore, Taylor shares that mark
with Charlotte senior running back Mike Bellamy.
Taylor needs to score just one touchdown next
season to become the state's all-time leader.
On defense, Glades Day seniors Landon
McDuffie and Wil Christmas each recorded a sack
on Warner's Barron. Fellow seniors Javon Carri
gan and Mann each had a fumble recovery.
Key stats:
Glades Day was 3-for-3 on fourth-down con
versions, while Warner Christian was 0-1. Glades
Day dominated the time of possession, 30:21
17:39. And Glades Day won the turnover battle as
they forced four in the game (two interceptions,
two fumbles), with Warner Christian's defense
getting just two overall (one interception, one
fumble).

sustained period of time. U.S. Sugar produces
sugarcane and citrus, both crops which see sig
nificant damage when temperatures reach 28 de
grees for periods of four hours or more.
On Monday night and into Tuesday morning,
the wind kept pace with the temperatures, blow
ing hard above the crops to prevent the tempera
tures from becoming entrenched lower than the
tops of the stalks.
"The wind saved us," Ms. Sanchez said.
"Thank the Lord."
Wednesday morning would be another story
altogether.
Rick Kress of Southern Gardens, a subsidiary
of U.S. Sugar, reported anywhere between 10 to
12 hours of below 28 temperatures -something
which no one hoped to see. The lowest tempera
ture reported then was 23 degrees at the compa
ny's Devil's Garden site.
But there was good news.
"We have experienced low temps but as of
now, have not seen any issues with frost or fruit
with ice forming," Mr. Kress said, explaining that
the drier air kept frost from forming on the crops.
Ms. Sanchez is reporting that the sugarcane
operations did not fare as well as their citrus.
"We had as much as nine hours below freez
ing in our cane on the eastern side," said Ms. San


chez. "Widespread frozen cane."
Precise losses won't be known until a thor
ough field assessment is done later this week. In
the meantime, the company is ramping up its fo
cus on harvesting the damaged crop first.
For U.S. Sugar, practices like flying helicopters
to keep the wind moving above the crops isn't
feasible -the scope of their sugarcane produce
tion would make such an effort a logistical night
mare. Instead, the company focuses on running
water through the fields to keep the temperatures
higher.
What makes this year's cold events worse is
the fact that many of this season's crops suffered
severe damage during January's freezes when a
stretch of cold days battered crops. Farmers are
comparing both cold snaps, but say that while
recent weather has been rough, it still pales in
comparison to the weather at the beginning of
the year.
The timing of such early frosts could be bet
ter.
"If this event had occurred in January, people
would replant," said Mr. Hatton. "They cannot re
plant crops now because we're going into winter.
It's particularly devastating to vegetable farmers."
But, remarking that the temperatures could
once again dip, forecasters are expecting another
cold few days starting Saturday. Early on, it is ex
pected that the new cold front will not be as se
vere as earlier this week.
"Two weeks from now we might have to talk
again," said Mr. Hatton. "The deal is not over yet.
That's just the way it is."
