N T D AP T, O T TWO ARRESTED, AS MANY AS EIGHT MAY HAVE INVOLVEMENTBY JUAN LOPEZ jlopez@newszap.comWith hopes nally rising with each win that the Tiger football program is on its way to recovering from losing seasons, a scandal involving several players may threaten the resolve of both the school and the team. Last month, Clewiston High School facilities were broken into on two separate occasions, Sept. 9 and Sept. 24, which resulted in a total of nine newly acquired iMac computers being stolen from the computer lab. These new iMacs were funded by a technology grant and were being used to enhance art programs and teach Adobe Photoshop skills. Tiger Players Charged in School Thefts Under New Management, U-Save ClosesBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA jzaragoza@newszap.comDean Younkman got up like he did every other Monday he put on his red polo U-Save shirt with black trim and went to get something to eat before reporting to work. He started his routine walk to the store that morning, stopping at Common Grounds, a local coffee shop, along the way. He thought about the work ahead he would bag merchandise for customers, collect shopping carts from the parking lot, and help folks with their groceries when the coffee shop owner stopped him to ask, "Didn't you hear? U-Save is closed." "Nobody told me," said Dean. About a block from the shop, the store was abandoned, as though it had been for years. White butcher tape across the glass doors obscured the inside of the business, and a manila envelope-sized sign declared: "Store Closed." The 15-year-employee was at a loss for words. What was he going to do now, he was asked? "I don't know. I'm going to take the week off, look for a job and see what happens," he said. Dean wasn't the only employee laid off unceremoniously. Another employee, a butcher at U-Save, got the call on Sunday night, just hours before he was scheduled to come in to work his regular shift of 7 a.m. to noon, or "whenever I got done cutting meat;" his schedule as of late was never set in stone. Rumblings of store employees just days before feared the worst. The LaBelle U-Save had been closed on Friday night, and employees wondered if the same was to happen to the Clewiston store. The butcher didn't want any surprises.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Electronic cigarettes:tobacco product or drug delivery device?Electronic cigarettes are products designed to deliver nicotine to a user in the form of a vapor.Typically,they are composed of a rechargeable, battery-operated heating element,a replaceable cartridge that may contain nicotine,and an atomizer that,when heated,converts the contents of the cartridge into a vapor.This vapor can then be inhaled by the user.These products are often made to look like such products as cigarettes,cigars,and pipes.They are also sometimes made to look like everyday items such as pens and USB memory sticks,for people who wish to use the product without others noticing. Under the 2009 Family Smoking Prevention and Tobacco Control Act (FSPTCA),products containing nicotine derived from tobacco but making no therapeutic claims must be regulated as "tobacco products". However,if such product claims to have therapeutic benefits,it must pass a "safe and effective" standard,used in drug approvals,and be approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). The FDA has not evaluated any e-cigarettes for safety or effectiveness. When the FDA conducted limited laboratory studies of certain samples, FDA found significant quality issues that indicate that quality control processes used to manufacture these products are substandard or non-existent.The FDA found that cartridges labeled as containing no nicotine contained nicotine and that three different electroniccigarette cartridges with the same label emitted a markedly different amount of nicotine with each puff.Experts have also raised concerns that the marketing of products such as e-cigarettes can increase nicotine addiction among young people and may lead kids to try other tobacco products.Visit FDA's Electronic Cigarettes webpage for additional information. So what resources are available to a person who is ready to quit tobacco use? There are seven FDA-approved tobacco cessation aids,including nicotine patches,nicotine gum,nicotine lozenges, nicotine inhaler,nicotine nasal spray,Varenicline,and Bupropion SR.While aids alone increase the success quit rate compared to using no aids,a combination of counseling and aids has proven more effective.For help quitting tobacco use,contact the tobacco cessation department at Hendry Regional Medical Center at 863-902-3019.You may also call 1800-QUIT-NOW from anywhere in the state of Florida or visit www.quitnow.net/forida.

BY PAT DOBBINS Hendry/Glades Health DepartmentsHispanic Heritage Month is a time for celebrating the histories, cultures and contributions of American citizens whose ancestors came from Spain, Mexico, the Caribbean, Central, and South America. National Hispanic Heritage Month began in 1968 as Hispanic Heritage Week under President Lyndon Johnson and was expanded by President Ronald Reagan in 1988 to cover a 30-day period starting on Sept. 15 and ending on Oct. 15. This Year’s Theme is “Many Backgrounds, Many Stories ... One American Spirit” In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, the Hendry and Glades County Health Departments would like to urge the Hispanic/Latino population to focus on the prevention and early detection of illness and disease. Health factors for the Hispanic/Latino populations are often shaped by factors such as language or cultural barriers, lack of access to preventive care and the lack of health insurance.Key Moments in the Hispanic History of Florida1513 Ponce de Len lands on the coast of Florida and claims it for Spain. Amazed by the beauty of the land he names it “Pasqua Florida,” or Feast of Flowers. When the Spanish arrive, there are approximately 350,000 Native Americans from three major nations living in the Florida area: the Apalachee, the Timucua and the Calusa. 1565 Spanish soldiers establish the rst permanent Spanish settlement at St. Augustine, the oldest city in the United States. Destroyed and rebuilt many times, the city becomes the key to Spain’s hold on the Florida coast as Spaniards ght the French and British for control of the New World. 1566 Pedro Menendez de Aviles and Brother Francisco Villareal are the rst Europeans to set foot in what is now Miami. They come to build a Jesuit mission in lands heavily populated by Tequestan Indians. Early 1700’s The Seminoles, the Native American group most commonly associated with Florida today, enter Florida from Alabama and Georgia. The Seminoles take over territories that were formerly inhabited by many of Florida’s original Native American tribes before European-introduced diseases and exploitation destroyed their populations. 1819 Spain cedes Florida to the United States as part of an agreement that recognizes Texas as part of “New Spain.” Florida’s population is an eclectic mix of U.S. settlers, Spaniards, Seminoles, runaway slaves, and English traders. 1822 Citizens of Florida elect Joseph Marion Hernandez to Congress as a territorial delegate. He is the rst Latino in the history of the U.S. to serve in Congress. 1845 Florida becomes an American state. 1931 Regular air service is established between Miami and Havana. This service forti es Miami’s role as the United States main link to Cuba. 1959–1962 Fleeing Castro’s revolution, 155,000 Cubans leave their homeland. A large number of these Cuban “exiles” settle in an area of Miami known as “Little Havana” because of its overwhelmingly Cuban population. Today, more than 60 percent of Miami’s population is Latino, and more than 700,000 Cubans live in the Miami area. 1985 Miami elects its rst Cuban-American mayor, Xavier L. Surez. For more information visit this website at www.hispanicheritagemonth.gov/index.html. BY KATHY BARCO FWCFlorida is incredibly fortunate to have a vast system of public lands in Florida. Over the years, the state has acquired a range of local and state parks, forests and a wildlife management area system that is one of the largest in the nation. These lands sustain our sh and wildlife and maintain our outdoor heritage and our connection with the natural world. The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) operates the wildlife management areas under a multiple-use concept, accommodating a range of public uses that are compatible with sh and wildlife management. Wildlife management areas are the only places w here such varied activities as hiking, paddling, hunting, wildlife viewing or horseback riding may be so widely available. Most importantly, our WMAs, as they are called, have a long history of multiple recreational activities conducted safely. Millions of people visit the management areas every year to sh, view wildlife, hunt and explore on foot, horseback or boat. Those who come experience safe areas of scenic beauty with abundant wildlife because of the well-managed habitat there. Sharing these resources during hunting seasons is no exception. As Florida has urbanized, fewer Floridians participate in or have been exposed to hunting. This can lead to unnecessary con icts between users based on a lack of understanding and inaccurate perceptions. Even worse, people may avoid visiting some of the most beautiful places in our state. Learning about hunting can change these misperceptions. All hunters born after 1975 are required to complete a hunter safety course before they can purchase a license. This requirement contributes to Florida’s long record of safely offering hunting with other activities on public lands. The National Safety Council documents hunting as one of the safest types of outdoor recreation, and it continues to become safer. A check of the different WMA locations at MyFWC.com/Recreation quickly allows visitors to review the hunting calendar and plan a trip around hunting activity if they so desire. Additional information is provided that explains the character and popularity of hunting seasons. For example, general gun season draws the most users. During small game season, they typically see fewer hunters on public lands. Shooting hours are noon to sunset for the rst phase o f dove season. During spring turkey season, shooting hours end at 1 p.m. Visitors can use this type of information to plan the experience they are seeking. Everyone shares the same desire to enjoy the outdoors. Hunters need to welcome other wildlife management area users, and these users should extend the same courtesy to hunters and to each other. By reaching out to get to know one another, people can reduce potential con icts and wor k together to sustain the public lands. Through mutual understanding and respect, all can continue the heritage of access to public lands for ourselves and for future generations.

If you feel like your “me time” has been completely tapped out, Dr. Borba is offering some fresh ideas on ways moms can nd time for themselves yet still teach, nourish and nurture their children. More than 60 percent of moms want help with parenting but are afraid to ask. If you opt out of the “supermom” myth, you’ll probably nd that other moms feel just as stressed as you. And if you ask for help, you may be surprised by the friends and family members who come to your aid. Synchronize your online time with your child. A tech toy, like VTech’s web-enabled Tote & Go Laptop, will let your child emulate Mommy while having fun. And with 20 learning activities, online downloads and a pretend “social network,” this is a great way to teach your child about responsible tech habits. Whether it’s your friends, your playgroup or the ladies you see at the coffee shop daily, most moms are going through the same issues as you and want relaxation time with friends. Plan fun events and activities that act as a support system and let you have some girl time while the kids play. Get a small group of moms organized to plan tasks weekly, such as dinner preparation. Everyone splits the ingredient list and takes turns hosting a cooking night. Playtime can easily be repurposed as a learning opportunity for kids, but parents often ignore this in favor of traditional methods. Sometimes, kids need a break. When they return from school, let them de-compress with educational games and toys. For example, a realistic-looking children’s laptop with a color screen, like the Brilliant Creations Advanced Notebook, lets grade school children have fun while improving their skills in language arts, science, math, foreign languages and other areas.

BY ROBERT H. WELLS UFBacteria that could potentially help corals resist the devastating disease white pox have been found by researchers at the University of Florida and Mote Marine Laboratory. The ndings could help maintain the health of Florida's coral reefs, which bring in billions of dollars to the state annually and are important for tourism, sheries, shoreline protection and pharmaceutical research. "Coral reefs are a major attraction for tourists in Florida," said Max Teplitski, a microbiologist and an associate professor at UF's Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences. "They support the economies of South Florida, and they're also important for sheries and, in general, healthy ecosystems." "Unfortunately, in the past 20 years, corals have been degrading due to global environmental changes and direct human impacts, like over shing and other pressures," he said. "And also, diseases have been wiping out stressed corals in South Florida." White pox is caused by Serratia marcescens, a bacterium that commonly occurs in feces of animals and is capable of attacking a variety of animals and plants. To combat white pox, Teplitski and a team of researchers began studying the interactions between the pathogen that causes the malady and other microorganisms that live on corals. Their ndings are detailed in a study Teplitski co-authored in this month's issue of The ISME J ournal: Multidisciplinary Journal of Microbial Ecology. Corals are ancient creatures that recruit microorganisms such as bacteria to protect themselves from disease. Their characteristic structure is built by animals known as polyps. In the study, the researchers screened several hundred bacteria isolated from coral and non-coral polyps for the ability to help ward off w hite pox. The researchers found four bacteria that stopped white pox disease progression under controlled laboratory conditions and, to some degree, protected the polyps from getting sick. They also noted that polyps containing the bacteria survived white pox infection, whereas those without the bacteria died. Based on these results, scientists may begin checking individual polyps for the presence of bene cial bacteria before introducing them into a reef system as part of coral reef restoration. Kim Ritchie, senior scientist and manager for the marine microbiology program at Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota, said Florida's coral reefs are some of the sickest in the world. "They seem to be in the worst shape," said Ritchie, a co-author of the study. "But the more we can learn about the balance of bene cial bacteria and pathogenic bacteria, the easier it will be to help the coral reefs in the Keys become healthier." The research was funded by sales of Protect Our Reefs specialty license plates, a statewide program administered by Mote Marine Laboratory Inc. Learn more at www.mote.org/4reef. Study authors also include Ali Alagely, a former UF undergraduate student, and Cory Krediet, a doctoral student in the interdisciplinary ecology program at UF's School of Natural Resources and Environment. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 HERE’S MY C HERE’S MY C ARD!

Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.34/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.1 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.42/g, according to gasoline price website, FloridaStateGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 57.9 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 25.2 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 24.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 61.8 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. "After oil prices brie y dropped to $75/bbl in the last two weeks, we've seen a mini-rally take place, driving prices up to a more recent mark of $82/bbl. The volatility we continue to see in oil prices isn't surprising, and will likely continue as a fragile economy and some upbeat investors play the market," said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. "What this means for motorists is a continued roller coaster ride at the gas pump. While I don't expect a huge of movement in either direction, these up and down uctuations in gas prices will become the norm ahead of a volatile Spring 2012 time period," DeHaan adds.

Grid Iron GloryBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchFootball. It’s a game, yes, and much more. Playing football taught me teamwork. It also forced me to ask myself if I was willing to let my aws be revealed so I could do something about them. What’s more, football taught me that talk is cheap. We could boast about what we were going to do, but it wasn’t until we proved it on the eld that the truth was revealed. On the playing eld of life, God’s team and the Devil’s team engage in erce competition, each one trying to move in directions the other one doesn’t want to go, each one trying to score touchdowns. God has given us a three-instruction team playbook for life in this game. Follow it, and we are sure to score. First, leave the bleachers and benches and get in the game. Disciples of Jesus are not spectators in the stands. Disciples of Jesus do not sit on the bench or park in the pews. Disciples of Jesus are players on the eld. As players in this game we are important; so is how we play the game. What each of us contributes can help move the team forward to the goal of our high calling. Second, remember that the huddle is not the game. Huddles aren’t bad. We need huddles to make sure everyone is on the same page and all signals are clear. Even Jesus traveled and huddled w ith a “team.” In any contest, victory is gained through a combination of strength, skill, and good timing. Good timing comes from knowing when to huddle, and when to break and run a play. Christian life uses the huddle as a place to check in, keep signals straight, and con rm the play. But the game is not in the huddle. In fact, spend too long discussing things in the huddle and we will be penalized for delay of game. We will nd ourselves moving the wrong w ay down the eld. We huddle up on Sunday morning in order to hike out into a Monday world. That’s where the play-action takes place. Third, we need to always keep the ball in play. W hatever happens, don’t drop the ball! Even w hen our mission is tackled by opponents or set back by situations beyond our control, we can keep the gospel in play by pitching it to others alongside us or by passing it to those in front. Sometimes even a “Hail Mary” might be in order, but whatever happens, keep the ball in play. Those who quit before the game is over will never know the rewards that only the nishers can enjoy. We score by keeping on keeping on for Him!Wealth: Is It Only About Money and Possessions?BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchIt has been an interesting past week. People are gathering on Wall Street and throughout the country in major cities protesting the inequities between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” Seven hundred were arrested for blocking traf c and other disruptions. I am not used to hearing about such things in American cities. Interviewers gained different opinions about just what the issues were, but the most certain thing was that protesters are concerned about the few who seem to have amassed all of the wealth and the great numbers who have a declining lifestyle and standard of living. I was not as struck by the demonstrations in the streets that have been going on in Greece for some weeks now, nor the student protests in Spain and complaints about a shaky economy there. I just was not prepared to see such complaints and mass demonstrations here in the U. S. There was that Boston Tea Party 240 years ago when people said “enough” and this nation got underway; are we seeing a modern version of changes to come that may be just as radical and life-changing? There is a parable about a “certain ruler” who has led a good life; at least as he understood it. He asks the Lord “What must I do to inherit eternal life? (Luke 18:18ff).” Jesus reminds him about keeping the commandments; don’t commit adultery, don’t steal, don’t give false testimony, honor your father and mother (v. 20). The ruler assures Jesus that he has done all of these things, since he was a boy. I can imagine his being pleased at that moment and feeling “Aha, now I’ve got it made!” Then comes the confrontation; “You still lack one thing. Sell what you have and give to the poor!” A famous passage follows shortly thereafter, “Indeed it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for a rich man to enter the kingdom of God (v.25).” Upon hearing this, the crowds ask, “Who then can be saved?” The answer is that, “What is impossible with men is possible with God.” I have come to see richness as being relative. We see ourselves as poor when others would see us as rich. People that we might regard as poor would consider themselves rich in their world. Isn’t what we value what makes us rich or poor and not the accumulation of wealth per-se? I’ve heard the term “poor health” referring to a kind of impoverishment that has nothing to do with money. Likewise we speak of “Poor ... (someone)” when they have suffered a loss of a loved one or failed at some important task in their lives. When I see Jesus’ conclusion, “What is impossible with men,” I hear Him talking about our values; these are our real riches. The rest? When we see and choose the real wealth; we’ll know what to do with worldly wealth. Sharing is about loving, worldly wealth is a means of showing spiritual richness.Just a ChristianBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchHas it ever occurred to you that you can be just a “Christian?” Nothing more or less than a plain “Christian?” Yes, even in the midst of the religious confusion of our creed-bound, denomination-divided age, it is possible for you to be just a plain “Christian.” What does it mean to be just a Christian? Well, being a Christian means so much more than merely being a good moral person, more than giving mental assent to a certain belief, more than having one’s name on a church roll. Being just a Christian means to trust and obey Jesus Christ just as the early Christians did back in Bible days in the rst century. It means going back beyond all the distinctive Catholic and Protestant doctrines of today to nd Christ just as He is revealed in the New Testament Scriptures. You see, there were no different denominations in the beginning of Christianity. The early disciples were all one body. They were called simply “Christians” (Acts 11:26). They did not follow different creeds but were guided by the “faith once and for all delivered to the saints (Jude 3).” The New Testament Scriptures, rst as the spoken word and later as it was written down b y “holy men of God” as they were guided by the Holy Spirit, were their only rule of faith and practice. We have these same scriptures today and can reproduce the same pure Christians which ourished in the rst century after Christ. We can be just plain “Christians”. To nd out the details of how you can become and remain just a Christian like Peter, Paul and Matthew, you must open the scriptures and read for yourself. We suggest that you begin with the book of “Acts.” You will nd how Jesus built one church, and God added everyone who obeyed the gospel o f Christ to this non-denominational church, the body of Christ (Matt. 16:18; Acts 2:47). The Bible teaches that you will be added to the same body today when you believe in Jesus as God’s Son, repent of your sins, confess faith in Jesus Christ, and are baptized for remission o f sins to receive the Holy Spirit. Why not become just a Christian and wor k and worship in the fellowship of those who are just “Christians.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 13, 2011 RELIGION COLUMNS Your community directory is a click away! newszap.com Free Speech Free Ads

The council, which consists of a member-at-large and a president for each grade level, were chosen by TKAC students to represent the student body. “I look forward to challenging these students as they lead their peers,” remarked Mr. Sentgeorge. The Student Council’s goal is to serve and honor Jesus Christ and to work with their peers and the faculty to promote a positive high school experience. The student council will make decisions on behalf of their fellow students and assist with school activities and special events. Members strive to abide by school rules, demonstrate an attitude of cooperation and respect for others.

For more than two years, job seekers in Clewiston have visited the Goodwill Job-Link center for resume assistance, job searches, and other employment needs. Now, Clewiston-area residents can receive even more services at the center, thanks to an expansion supported by the United Way. “We liked what Goodwill was doing at the Job-Link here in Clewiston and asked if we could join them to provide other services,” explains Clifford Smith, president of the United Way of Lee, Hendry and Glades. “They told us they could knock down a few walls and build an even larger center. I thought, ‘it can’t possibly be that easy.’” The new Clewiston United Way house, which celebrated its grand opening on Sept. 28, will offer social services beyond employment assistance. The United Way house is located in the Goodwill Retail and Donation Center at 969 W. Sugarland Hwy. In addition to Goodwill’s Job-Link services, the Salvation Army now hosts a food pantry at the United Way house and other partners include Grandparents Re-entering Into Parenting (G.R.I.P.), and Visually Impaired Persons of Southwest Florida. Additional United Way programs will soon be available at the center. “We offer a number of services for Hendry County residents at the United Way House in LaBelle,” says Smith. “But having a United Way house in Clewiston is important because the people in need of these services are often also people who don’t have a way to travel that far.” United Way House Opens in Goodwill Retail StoreSUBMITTED PHOTO “I talked to the store manager on Saturday asking him, ‘are we going to close our store?’ He said no. He doubted that they would. He said they were going to keep the store open,” said the employee. Calls to U-Save’s parent company, S&O Holdings, went unreturned. The Oqab Group af liate, based in Ft. Myers, took ownership of the stores in September of 2010. Oqab owns and operates 15 supermarkets in Central and South Florida. The press release announcing the purchase states: U-Save stores will “continue to serve their local communities as they have for the past fty to eighty years.” Just a little more than a year later, the operations are folding down at an alarming rate. As of the writing of this article, the Clewiston and LaBelle stores were shut down, while U-Save stores in Belle Glade, Okeechobee and Moore Haven continued with their operations. With owners refusing comment, there was no explanation available for the closing. The grocery stores did have their share of trouble, however. The Clewiston U-Save was the subject of an article in The Clewiston News last month. The store had been the focus of several inspections resulting in poor marks conducted by the U.S.D.A. In light of the reports of improper storage of food items and unsanitary conditions throughout the building, employees revealed that they were experiencing dif culty getting paid on time. One employee remarked being paid on time just four times in the year since the Oqab Group took over. The conditions were so dire there, he said, that suppliers were requiring cash on delivery for all purchases made by the store. Employees were embarrassed after the article appeared, but hoped that it might offer the possibility of a resolution. Even if that meant the possibility of losing their jobs altogether, they agreed that something needed to be done. A day after he was red, the butcher wasn’t sure how he felt about the whole thing. “I’d be better if I was still working,” he said. Asked what his own next step was -the future of a person who specializes in carving meat being of limited industry -he offered half-seriously: “Hopefully, Save-A-Lot.” U-SAVEContinued  1 PHOTO / JOSE ZARAGOZAOne of the areas that had been reported being bare for weeks without receiving new stock.

After four years without a single playoff win, the Tigers' last 27-14 win over Avon Park landed them at the top of their district; but only one game ahead of an also undefeated Dunbar (5-1, 2-0 in district play). "With the situation we were dealing with at the time, I thought that initially, the kids responded in a way that we wouldn't want them to respond," said Coach Roth on Tuesday. "We came out at. I think there was a concern [that] Oh, we're losing some guys.' "We got down seven-nothing. The way we responded after that I thought was exactly what we w ere looking for." After a scoreless rst quarter, the Red Devils w ent up 7-0 with a 2-yard rushing touchdown in the second. The Tigers responded with back-toback passing touchdowns by Tyler Clemmons to Te'Angelo Ulett and Chauncey Thicklin; the rst for 32 yards and the second for 21. Clemmons nished the game 7-of-15 for 109 yards and 2 touchdowns; the highest passing performance for the Tigers this season. Grant Polhill missed the Tigers' rst extrapoint attempt after an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty that drew boos from the crowd forced them into a 27-yard attempt. On the other hand, he more than made up for it by sending his rst two eld goal attempts of the season through the uprights; the rst from 25 y ards out, and the second from 38. "We're always con dent in Grant [Polhill]. W e see what he does every day and every week in practice," said Coach Roth when asked about his con dence in Special Teams scoring after last Friday's win. "He kind of got down on himself after he missed that extra point. I went over to him and said, Hey bud, you're going to get another opportunity' and boy did he. A 38-yard eld goal to go up 20-7, he had two eld goals in a row [and] I thought his kickoffs were phenomenal after that. "I think Grant just needed con dence in himself, just something positive to happen. After the second eld goal he had his rst touchback of the year from the 40 [yard line]. "So anytime you have your special teams putting points on the board and doing things like that, I mean, his punting was phenomenal. It was the best punting game of his career. So, if that part of our game stays consistent [like] where it was last week; we know offensively we've got to run the ball better this week, defensively we've got to not give up the big play, and I think we're a wellrounded football team." After losing ve starting players last week, one of which being the Tigers' starting running bac k Virthavious Robinson, due to a scandal involving thefts at the school, the Tigers struggled against the Red Devils; nishing with a season-low 68 yards. Robinson was Clewiston's rushing game, and what has been the cornerstone of the Tigers offensive game plans all year. "We lost ve players; actually ve and a half. We didn't start the game with our left guard, our left tackle, both defensive ends, and our starting running back. "You know, and with the number of kids we have, which is still around 70 kids in our program, when you're having to replace six kids that start the game, that's tough. "We lost both backup cornerbacks, there were special teams' players, but the kids that stepped in I thought did a good job and did what we expected them to do." Despite losing depth on defense, the Tigers still nished the game with 6 forced fumbles and 3 sacks. Asked about the return of the players who didn't make it into the game last week, Coach Roth said, "Not this week. I'm not sure right now, that's a school issue. They were suspended for a certain number of days. I think towards the end of this week or maybe early next week we'll kind of nd out what's going on with those kids; but right now, we're focused on the guys that we have here."

PHOTO / JENNY WOODS Either way, the Tigers have had roughly ve days to prepare for the biggest challenge they'll face all season: this week's matchup against district rival Dunbar. After cracking open the door to the playoffs last year, winning their rst three district games, the door was slammed shut in their last game against Dunbar High School; losing 15-14. But after the result of the last 4 games, the momentum may be just enough to help the Tigers walk away w ith their fth win over unquestionably the best team they've faced all season short of American Heritage. "This is the biggest game. I told them yesterday, it's the biggest game they're going to play in their high school careers; especially the seniors and juniors that have been here the past few y ears and haven't had much success," replied Coach Roth when asked about the importance of this week's match-up. "You have two undefeated teams in the district. We're playing at home. Dunbar's the team that's knocked us out of the playoffs the past two y ears and we need to respond that way. We're planning on going out and getting a victory Friday night." With Dunbar, a team that is set to win out the remainder of its schedule, this Friday's game is the epitome of a must-win. A loss would mostlikely keep the Tigers out of the playoffs for a third consecutive season. "Dunbar is very unique. They remind you a little of a [Sarasota] Booker with their speed. "Defensively, they have 11 guys on the eld that can just at out run. Most schools that you play against are going to be big up front and then have a lot of speed, similar to where we are right now; but Dunbar, they're defensive lineman look like they're about 150 or 160 pounds, but they're fast. "They're tough to block. They bring a lot of pressure offensively. They throw the ball a lot. They have some speed at running back. So it's de nitely our biggest challenge to date." Considering how much the Tigers relied on the passing game last week, how explosive of a pass rush the Dunbar Tigers have on defense, and how much the rushing game lacked in last week's match-up, offense is arguably the biggest concern for Clewiston going into week 7. When asked about how much of this week's game plan would revolve around the passing game: "It's all going to depend on how we handle things up front." "I mean, obviously our starting game plan is to establish the run, just like it is every week. Last week, we kind of had an idea that with what they did defensively, we were going to have to throw the ball a little more. We're going to go into this week with the game plan that we're going to be as balanced as we need to be. We're going to be prepared to throw the ball if we need to throw it and we're going to be prepared to run the ball if we need to run it." Clewiston's home match-up against the Dunbar Tigers kicks off this Friday (October 14). FOOTBALLContinued  12

Participants traveled by car, bicycle, boat, swamp buggy and on foot for the Sept. 17 bird survey. In Hendry County, 43 people observed 110 bird species and counted 32,111 individual birds. Glades County volunteers found 87 species for a total of 4,366 birds. The count helps create a snapshot of returning wintering birds, migrating birds moving though inland Florida and the area’s resident birds. Wintering water fowl, raptors and shore birds w ere reported. Scrub Jays were found in Muse and Eastern Bluebirds in Pioneer. One Marbled Godwit was reported on Lake Okeechobee. At Fisheating Creek, a Yellow-billed Cuckoo ew overhead. An American Kestrel was seen north of Lake Okeechobee. Flocks of Bobolink were sighted North and South of the Lake. Warblers, Owls, Ruby-throated Hummingbirds, and Woodpeckers were found during team and home counts. Over 11,800 Common Gallinule (formerly Moorhen) were reported. Some of the other common resident birds reported included Black Vultures which outnumbered the Turkey Vultures two to one. The Black V ulture is a fairly large stocky bird with a black body and dark gray wrinkled featherless head and short square tail. It has broad wings with a large whitish patch at the tip. They frequently ap their wings with quick choppy wing beats. Their wings are held horizontally when gliding or soaring. Black Vultures are usually silent but can make soft hisses or barks. In natural settings their main diet is carrion w hich they locate by sight. They will eat garbage, eggs, decomposing plant material, young mammals and birds. Vultures play an important park in the ecosystem by disposing of carrion that would be the breeding ground for diseases. In Florida, the Black Vulture will lay eggs on the ground, hollowed stump or fallen log from January to August. Incubation is usually 37 to 48 days with the young edging at 80 to 94 day.

Man arrested on counterfeitting and drug charges On October 8, after bailing out Regina Powers from the Hendry County Jail, 35-yearold Jory Scott Corbitt was arrested in the jail parking lot on charges of driving on a suspended driver’s license. He was seen driving into the lot by deputies. While he was inside, they con rmed their suspicions that his license was suspended. Corbitt’s license had been suspended inde nitely for failure to pay traf c nes and again on October 4 for failure to complete court ordered school. After being taken into custody, Corbitt handed his ball cap, wallet, and cigarettes to Regina Powers. When deputies intercepted the handoff, they located, inside the hat, a small clear bag of what later tested positive for Crystal Meth. Corbitt’s wallet was then placed in his rear pocket to accompany him to the jail. After being turned over to jail staff, an inventory of personal property was conducted by Corrections Of cer, Deputy K. Kirk. Located in Corbitt’s wallet was 10 twenty dollar bills, and 1 ten dollar bill, later con rmed to be counterfeit. Hendry County Investigator K. Herrera, along with a secret service agent, responded to the Jail and obtained a confession from Corbitt. Deputies then went to Corbitt’s residence at 5950 Kirby Road. There they met with Regina Powers, who also resides at the residence. With her consent, they con scated a black printer along with paper that, reportedly, had been used to print the phony money. Jory Scott Corbitt’s charges include, driving while license suspended, possession of false bank bills, possession of tools for forgery counterfeiting, and drug possession. He was released on October 9 on $69,000 bond.Arrest component active on Sheriff’s websiteSheriff Steve Whidden introduces the newest feature on the Hendry County Sheriff’s Ofce website. You can now search arrests, bond information and visitation schedules by going to www.hendrysheriff.org. Choose the arrest tab located to the far right and booking information will be a click away. This new feature will provide the individual with descriptive information whether they are currently in custody or if they have been released. Clicking on the link below their name will give you the booking date, release date, charges and bond information. It is anticipated that this will be more convenient for those checking on the status of an individual who has been arrested, by offsetting the need to phone the jail. Jail staff will still be available to assist should a phone call be necessary. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 23 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 13, 2011 The stolen computers represents nearly $10,000 in computer equipment. Clewiston Police Department Detectives Curtis Clay and Julius Taylor have been investigating both instances. There was not a great deal of information to go on until a few weeks ago when a tip came in to the detectives concerning the thefts. As a result, a number of Clewiston High School students have been implicated in the thefts. According to Assistant Clewiston Police Chief Kristine Petersen, the investigation is revealing more than just one or two suspects. “From what we have discovered so far, a minimum of ve high schoolers were involved,” said Petersen. “That number will more than likely go up as more statements are taken and leads followed. Unfortunately, it does look like all those involved were on the football team.” Two arrests were initially made in the case. The rst arrest was of 18-year-old Walter Holmes, a senior. His connection with the football team is not clear. The second was of another senior and Tiger running back, 18-year-old Virthavious Robinson, who was taken in last week by Sgt. Pelham. One witness to the arrest reported that when Robinson saw Pelham coming towards him he said, “Dammit, someone told.” Rick Murphy, Superintendent of Hendry Schools, has found this situation frustrating but still sees the light at the end of the tunnel. “It is frustrating to have this happen because it has the ability re ect on the school negatively as a whole,” said Murphy. “These kids made a wrong choice. Now, from this point, they need to make the right ones.” According to the superintendent, ve students so far have been suspended. The suspensions are for an inde nite time, the suspects’ return to school depending on the outcome of the investigation. As to how the computers were stolen, little information has been made public, although Murphy did say that the students managed the theft without triggering campus security. Clewiston High School Principal Janice Lee also regretted the fact that these break-ins happened and, in a written statement, reported that the school is moving forward. “What an unfortunate experience for myself, the staff and the students,” Lee writes. “These were good students, for the most part, that contributed to many of the improvements that have occurred over the past two years.” But through all this, Lee contends that the school has taken appropriate action. “When school policies are violated, we are obligated to provide consequences to students; ensuring that at the same time those consequences do not cause irreparable harm,” the principal writes. “We will continue to support and hold true to our school’s vision, which is to engage, inspire and challenge every student every day.” For Clewiston Tiger Athletic Director Joe Roth, the timing of these events could not have come at a more pivotal moment, when otherwise good things are happening. “It does affect us, absolutely. But, we are still moving forward and the kids stepped up this past Friday to prove this,” said Roth, whose team still managed a victory on Friday, its fourth consecutive win. “Sometimes when you face adversity, you can come together or fall apart. It is a little tougher to try and determine what will happen but I feel that we will come together even more.” Roth said the team remains focused on the goals it set for itself at the start of the season. It was dif cult for him to reconcile the action of a few. “I am disappointed in these boys. When young men make the wrong decisions it can be disappointing,” said Roth. “For the most part, these guys are good guys. I am hoping that these guys will be able to come back and be part of this school and team again once everything is done.” For right now, he will have to wait for what the nal decision will be from the investigation and the school. As to the investigation, more work lies ahead. Det. Clay, not wanting to give too much away, is quite con dent that he has strong cases against those involved. Currently, has taken more than ten statements concerning the case and has put together case packets for warrants. So far, he is saying that ve have been implicated but the number may be higher after everything is said and done. “Anywhere from ve to as many as eight were involved,” said Clay. “I don’t want to give too much out but I do know who and how.” Detectives are not saying how the suspects managed the theft, whether they broke in to the school or took advantage of their regular access to the school. He credited a tip from the community for helping to break the investigation wide open. So far, ve of the nine iMacs have been found. The other four have yet to turn up. Clay is asking if anyone has any information on these last four computers, contact him at 863-983-9148. BURGLARYContinued  1 Lost control in a curveA Clewiston man died late Sunday night on S.R. 80 after losing control of his motorcycle. The incident happened shortly after 9:30 p.m., as 68-year-old Houston Lamar Boyd, of Clewiston, was travelling westbound on S.R. 80. Shortly after he passed C.R. 833, he attempted to pass another vehicle as they entered the curve.

He entered onto the grassy shoulder, hit the south guardrail and was thrown from the motorcycle. He came to rest in the grass on the southern side of S.R. 80 as his motorcycle landed in the westbound lane. Boyd was pronounced dead on the scene.

Part of statewide literacy awareness effortBY JUAN LOPEZ jlopez@newszap.comState Governor Rick Scott’s wife, Ann Scott, v isited Central Elementary School on her tour of Florida schools advocating literacy and the love of reading. Her tour of the school last Thursday began w ith her reading Llama, Llama, Red Pajama to the entire Kindergarten class group in the school’s library. The book is this year’s Read for the Record book. Read for the Record is an annual one-day reading celebration that invites schoolchildren, teachers, families and communities to come together to set a new world record for the most people reading the same book on the same day. Some other books for the event have been: The Story of Ferdinand, Corduroy and The Little E ngine That Could Since it was a pajama party for the Kindergartners, Mrs. Scott did her best to dress for the occasion with her own pajama wear. She answered several questions from the children, no matter how silly those questions were. After her reading, she continued on to tour the rest of the school, and she stopped in on several classrooms while lessons were taking place. In Mrs. Morrell’s second grade class, the class performed a recital of the Preamble with sign language accompaniment. Another class on her tour w as in the middle of conducting experiments w ith water. Mrs. Scott got to see the class use their new laptops and proscopes that had been part of a grant that area schools were awarded with. She topped off her tour by helping record the daily morning podcast that the school staff puts together and broadcasts each and every morning. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Open Evenings Emergencies Welcome All InsuranceWelcomeFREEDigital X-Ray & Consultation or Second OpinionNEW DENTURES$359starting at$99ea.starting at(D5110) (D5120)Exp. 10/31/11Exp. 10/31/11Exp. 10/31/11(D2750) (D7140) FROM (D9310) (D0330)CROWNSEXTRACTIONS$499LIMITED TIME ONLY IMPLANTOLOGYISNOTARECOGNIZEDSPECIALTYBYTHEAMERICANDENTALASSOCIATIONANDFLORIDABOARDOFDENTISTRY.
