Agency refutes claim made by studyBY JUAN LOPEZ jlopez@newszap.comThe Health Planning Council of Southwest Florida published a study earlier this year which stated that Hendry County had no mental health professional serving the area. Refuting that claim are the mental health workers who, according to the study, are not supposed to exist. The study, which was the subject of an article recently, stated that, “Hendry and Glades County has been designated a Health Professional Shortage Area. The area has been designated as having a shortage of one mental health professional.” With that rather ambiguous comment, no other mention is made in the study about mental health; save for a small section on suicide rates. That section is rather brief with a small chart stating that Hendry County is just below the state average. As to determining the criteria upon which the assessment was made, it could be compared to a wild goose chase as one of ce referred to another and another. A spokeswoman for the Planning Council stated that, “They only compiled the date from several State and Federal agencies and therefore were unsure of what criteria was used for the designation.” The Federal agency where this designation was made was the U.S. Department of Health Resources and Human Services. From here, the Florida Department of Health’s Primary Care Of ce was listed as the direct contact for any information pertaining to the designation. After contacting several people at that of ce, this reporter’s questions were referred to a spokesman. While Federal of cials have issued that declaration and slow to explain, local mental health workers and advocates are opposing it. Enter Rev. Sam Thomas and Joseph Hosick who are adamant that Hendr y and Glades County have mental health coverage under the Hendry/Glades Mental Health Clinic.

Before he was born, doctors discovered his umbilical cord was wrapping around his neck and they rushed his mother to have a Cesarean section. He was born ve-and-a-half weeks before he was due and stayed at the hospital for some time afterward. Just a few weeks later now, he has returned to the pediatric intensive care unit of a hospital. Doctors made the most dire pronouncements yet in his four months of life: Atreyu will die or he will survive but most certainly with permanent mental disabilities. The little boy has experienced enough pain to last a lifetime. But his mother said this is secondary only to the primary pain of his life: that of being without his father. Atreyu’s father, Anthony Jones, sits in jail on charges of child neglect, which detectives say caused the injuries that see the little boy now ghting for his life. The child’s mother argues for his release. “Can you imagine what he’s going through? We can’t turn back time, unfortunately. We can’t go back and x this,” a tearful Amanda Etzweiler, Atreyu’s mother, told The Clewiston News. Still shaken by what happened to her child in October, Amanda tried to defend the actions Anthony made as those of a man who had horrible judgment in the face of the emergency. “He’s 23 years old, he’s a kid,” Amanda says of Anthony. “I don’t want him to be made out to be a monster because he panicked.” Investigators arrested Anthony after the child was injured at the family’s mobile home in Clewiston.

Since 1997, the Alternative Water Supply Funding Program, in cooperation with the State of Florida, has invested $185.5 million into 468 alternative water supply projects. To date, these projects have created 398 million gallons a day of water supply capacity, reducing reliance on freshwater sources. Alternative water sources diversify South Florida’s water supply while reducing the region’s dependence on traditional freshwater resources and making communities less susceptible to drought impacts. Examples of alternative water supply include: Saltwater and brackish water Reclaimed water Surface water captured during wet weather Sources made available through new storage Stormwater (for consumptive use) Other nontraditional sources Development of alternative water supplies is an important component of the District’s four regional water supply plans, which encompass the agency’s jurisdictional area. Updated every ve years, each plan creates a framework for future water use decisions and identi es strategies to meet future water demands of urban and agricultural uses, while meeting the needs of the environment.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Veterans’ Day: Those Who Deserve Our ThanksBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchNov. 11 is Veteran’s Day. Some churches celebrate the day in remembrance of Saint Martin of Tours. He lived in the fourth century among the poor, rural people in Eastern France. His father was a Roman military of cer and, as expected, Martin w as to follow in his footsteps. During one particularly cold night, a beggar approached Martin and in the midst of the freezing w eather, Martin cut his military cloak in two to share it with the man who had none. Little by little, he began to see another way, leading to the Christian faith and his ministry. His background has made him a prototype for military chaplaincies and he is regarded as many as their patron saint. There were those who felt he might not be suited for ministry, being too “rough and tumble,” and not dressing in the nest clothes of the day. He was instead a “man of the people he served,” and did not put on airs. That’s been my experience with chaplains; spending time where “the rubber meets the road,” and not avoiding hardships. That’s the experience of our veterans, too. W hether by choice or by call to duty, their lives have been confrontations with the most dif cult situations humanity can in ict. I share with all of those families who have been affected by the ravages of war, and who hope for peace. During the Vietnam era, I spent time with a retired Marine Corps General who had a distinguished career in the Paci c and in the Mideast. We’d talk about his experiences and the hope for peace. One day he told me that nobody was more interested in seeing peace than he was; adding “I’ve seen what war can do!” Underlying it all was a realization of the necessity for defense of liberties and freedom; with a willingness to make sacri ces in the name of, and hope for, good among all of the evils to be faced. Our Lord had an encounter with a Roman legionnaire; a centurion who came to Him and asked healing for his servant. (Matthew 8:5ff). The centurion recognized that he doesn’t deserve for Jesus even to enter his home, for he is under the authority of someone else. Orders are orders but there is that servant whom he cares about, and, in spite of it all, he is a man who can be merciful, caring, loving. The Lord saw faith; the centurion’s prayer was granted. Out of the crucible of being an adversary, of living in a very dif cult world of troubles and wars, there is still faith, hope, love. The Lord commented that He had not seen such great faith, and those who know hard times can be the exemplars of faith to those who have not shared their pains. We can, and should honor those who have served us. Their lives have something to teach us all. May we see what the Lord saw, may we be inspired by their often-silent witness and thankful for what they give us. They Gave Their Yesterdays For Our TodaysBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchOn November 11, we honor those men and women who have served in our armed forces. When we re ect on the honor and heroism of our soldiers, we are confronted with the sacrices they made, as well as our response to those sacri ces. The whole concept of anyone making sacrices for us, much less being willing to die for us, sometimes makes us uneasy. Confronting their heroism forces us to stop and examine our own lives. Why did they do what they did? What cause is worth dying for? Would we be willing to do the same? Celebrities are people who make news, heroes are people who make history. The qualities of heroism are eternal: self-sacri ce, courage, honor, duty. A man who served in the Navy during World War II shared that one night he was running his transport across the Atlantic when he noticed the white trail of a torpedo coming toward him. His ship was lled with hundreds of soldiers, and the potential loss of life would have been devastating. Nearby, a smaller ship had also seen the torpedo coming. The captain of the smaller vessel maneuvered his ship between the transport and the torpedo. The explosion destroyed his ship, killing all those on board. The man who told this story ended it by saying, “The skipper of that other ship was my best friend.” Slowly, he remarked, “You know, there is a verse in the Bible which has special meaning for me now. It is this: ‘Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’” What kind of love would give itself up for another? What kind of love would be willing to die for you and me? It’s the love that Jesus demonstrated to sho w us how much we mean to God. It’s the love we celebrate today in the example of soldiers who sacri ced and sometimes even died for our freedom. In India there is a cemetery where the bodies of American soldiers are buried. Over the entrance to the cemetery are these words: “Tell Them We Gave Our Todays for Their Tomorrows.” Let us never forget that our todays were bought with a price. Someone had to pay with their service and sometimes with their lives yesterday, so we might be free today. To all of our veterans: A national holiday is hardl y enough to sho w you our gratitude and respect. There is no way we can suf ciently say, “Thank you.” We can’t undo anything you’ve been through, but we can do what the Bible tells us to do – pra y for you and love you and honor your sacri ces.The Occupy Wall Street MobBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchThere seems to be a pathetic mentality that is driving mobs all over the world. The “something for nothing” mobs are increasing in number and activity. The Bible teaches a man should earn his bread by the sweat of his brow and that a man who refuses to work should not eat. But these mobs want to ignore such teaching and seem to think that the world owes them a living. I recently received by e-mail these ve great sentences. 1.You cannot legislate the poor into prosperity, by legislating the wealth out of prosperity. 2.What one person receives without working for, another person must work for without receiving. 3.The government cannot give to anybody, anything that the government does not rst take from somebody else. 4. You cannot multiply wealth by dividing it. 5. When half of the people get the idea that they do not have to work because the other hal f is going to take care of them, and when the other half gets the idea that it does no good to work, because somebody else is going to get what the y work for, that is the beginning of the end of an y nation. Now understand this. All great democracies have committed suicide somewhere between 200 and 250 years after being founded. The reason? The voters gured out they could vote themselves money from the treasury by electing people who promised to give them money from the treasury in exchange for electing them. The United States of cially became a Republic in 1776, 235 years ago. The number of people now getting free stuff outnumbers the people paying for the free stuff. If we don’t change this trend it will spell the end of the United States as we know it. RELIGION COLUMNS Rev. Sam S. Thomas Pastor John Hicks “Out of the crucible of being an adversary, of living in a very dif cult world of troubles and wars, there is still faith, hope and love.”-Rev. Sam S.

LOW COST VACCINATION CLINICS 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.37/g yesterday. This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.9 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.43/g, according to gasoline price website FloridaStateGasPrices.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 57.5 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 2.5 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has not moved during the last month and stands 57.3 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average is just one penny away from being the lowest we’ve seen since the start of March, even as crude oil prices have risen,” said Patrick DeHaan, GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst. “Just in the last week, wholesale prices have moved 13 cents per gallon between the high and low, so it does remain surprising that average prices have moved very little,” DeHaan added.

According to the FBI, Americans currently lose approximately $40 billion annually to nancial investment fraud. Most Americans rely solely on the government and their banks to enforce investor safety, but many experts caution this isn’t enough and that people need to get actively involved in protecting themselves. Even with strengthened nancial protection laws in place, the ability for the government to police the scope of undue pro teering and theft is limited. “Rather than being victimized rst and seeking recourse later, protect your nest egg now,” says Pat Huddleston, author “The Vigilant Investor: A Former SEC Enforcer Reveals How to Fraud-Proof Your Investments,” published by AMACOM Books. “Vigilance means acknowledging that anyone is vulnerable to being tricked, regardless of education, intelligence, and experience.” You may think you can spot a scam a mile away, but the best ones don’t look like scams or sound completely trustworthy. Experienced fraudsters typically provide their victims with credible looking proof of returns. Some scams will go so far as to employ fullystaffed phone banks and websites. Every investor should be on the alert for red ags like these, says Huddleston, who is also CEO of Investor’s Watchdog, a group that conducts fraud investigations. Name-dropping. Scam artists often wield the power of their supposed celebrity clients to impress the gullible. The takeaway pitch. “Available for a limited time only!” This scammer’s ploy of taking away your opportunity taps into the natural human aversion to loss. Living extra-large. If your investment adviser spends money like a trust fund baby on a weekend shopping bender, he is spending your money, not his own. Evading transparency. If the adviser resists your requests for transparency, take your money and run. Vague credentials. Verify your investment salesperson’s background independently using resources like the National Student Clearinghouse. An appeal to faith. Fraud aimed at religious groups is so virulent and effective that the only safe course is to say no even to a subtle appeal to your faith. Be especially on guard if you have elderly parents. Those aged 60 years or older are disproportionately targeted. More tips on protecting your nest egg from unscrupulous fraudsters can be found in Huddleston’s book and by visiting www.thevigilantinvestor.com. By treating every investment opportunity with healthy skepticism and objectivity, you can help protect your family’s future. How To Protect Yourself From Financial Scams

Public health and tourism industry at stakeBY CRIS COSTELLO e Sierra ClubThe U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s thumbs up today for Florida’s polluter-friendly w ater quality rules is a loss for families who deserve clean water. Today, the EPA sent a letter (here) to the Florida Department of Environmental Protection announcing its preliminary approval of draft state regulations on sewage, manure and fertilizer pollution. This preliminary approval is being given by the EPA without that agency’s having reviewed the technical comments provided by Florida’s w ater quality advocates. Rudy Scheffer, Sierra Club Florida Steering Committee Chair, said “The Florida DEP proposed rule won’t prevent the outbreaks of toxic green slime that currently plague the state, killing sh, fouling drinking water, closing swimming areas, and causing illness in people and livestock. It will leave us right where we are now: waiting until it is too costly and too late to protect our families and our jobs from sick water.” “EPA caved to congressional pressure to put polluter interests above those of the Florida public. Who will be the losers? Local waterfront communities, homeowners with sinking property v alues, and everyone who shes, swims, boats or drinks water in the state” said Frank Jackalone, Florida Staff Director of the Sierra Club. The FDEP proposed rule takes all the pressure of the state’s biggest industrial polluters and instead places it on taxpayers and local governments; it also gives the state legislature complete control over the future of Florida’s water resources, including the ability to defund the implementation and enforcement of the rule. The state’s Environmental Regulation Commission will hear a presentation on the DEP’s draft rule at a meeting in Tallahassee tomorrow. If the ERC signs off on the draft rule, it goes before the Florida Legislature in the 2012 session. The EPA will then have the opportunity to approve or deny the state’s nal rule. Earthjustice led suit to compel the EPA to set limits on sewage, manure and fertilizer pollution in 2008 in the Northern District of Florida on behalf of the Florida Wildlife Federation, the Sierra Club, the Conservancy of Southwest Florida, the Environmental Confederation of Southwest Florida, and St. John’s Riverkeeper. Slimed Florida waterways devastate waterfront property values. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 COME ONE, COME ALL Put a Face to the name BBQMEET & GREETRAY VAN HOUTENFor Sheriff of Hendry CountyDate: November 12, 2011 Time: 3 p.m. to 7 p.m.Place: Barron Park, LaBelle Grand Prize Drawing & Other PrizesFace painting, games Fun for children of all ages!See you there!!!Paid Political advertisement paid for and approved by Ray Van Houten, Republican for Hendry County Sheriff 10 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 Federal And State Regulators Buckle Under Polluter Pressure SUBMITTED PHOTOFlorida waterway in 2005.

As a result of three uncommon storms in one month, nearly 10 inches of rain was recorded District-wide for October, representing 6.2 inches above the average for this time of year. All areas from Orlando to the Florida Keys received above-average rainfall, with key regions such as the Kissimmee basins and Water Conserv ation Areas 2 and 3 receiving a much-needed boost. In comparison, October 2005 saw a total of 7.98 inches of rain — including Hurricane Wilma. The storm left an average of 4.16 inches of rain across the District. October’s storms did signi cantly bene t Lake Okeechobee, a key backup water supply for millions of South Floridians. The lake stood at 13.60 feet NGVD on Wednesday, close to the same level as this time last year. Unlike last year, the lake is rising instead of falling. The current level is more than 2 feet higher than on September 30 but still below the historical average of 15.03 inches. “The decisions we make every day in water management consider the potential for weather that can swerve from record dry to record deluge in a relatively short timeframe,” said Susan Sylv ester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. “Our challenge is to continually plan, adjust and operate the extensive South Florida system to best balance the needs of 7.7 million people, businesses and the natural system.” October is a crucial transition from the wet season to the dry season because of its potential impact on regional water levels for months to come. October 2011 was de ned by three exceptional storm events that signi cantly bolstered water levels in drought-plagued Lake Okeechobee, aquifers and storage areas across the region. The storms included: Oct. 8: This was the wettest single day in the upper and lower Kissimmee basins combined in nearly 100 years. An average of 6.05 inches of rain fell in the two basins, spanning approximately 3,000 square miles, with local maximums up to 14.09 inches. The Kissimmee River was closed to navigation for about two weeks because of dangerous water ows. Navigation was restored when conditions became safe again. Oct. 16 18: A non-tropical low pressure system and a stalled front combined to leave South Florida with an average of 2.74 inches of rain across the District. The rain primarily fell south of Lake Okeechobee, mainly missing the already drenched Kissimmee region. The lower Florida Keys saw a maximum of 21.97 inches. Oct. 28 31: Hurricane Rina reached the Yucatan Peninsula before several elements, including wind shear and cooler water temperatures, combined to weaken the storm and rip it apart. Remnant energy and moisture helped drench South Florida, with an average of 3.7 inches o f rain over four days. Some areas in Broward and Miami-Dade counties reported more than 12 inches of torrential rain, and localized ooding was reported. Despite the October storms, a forecast of below-average rainfall for the 2011-2012 dry season is cause for caution and continued water conservation. The region may still face water shortage conditions in the spring as a result.

According to information on the A udubon web site, the Eastern breeding population is found along the Atlantic Coast from North Carolina south to Central Florida. Their migration usually occurs from April to May and then from September to October. Eastern Painted Bunting winter in South Florida and possibly the Bahamas, Antilles, Central America, and Cuba. This small, uncommon songbird is currently being reported returning to its wintering grounds in South Florida. The western population stretches from Louisiana, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Texas, and into Northern Mexico. The western population winter in Southern Mexico and Central America. The male Painted Bunting has a blue head and nape and shiny green back. Its rump, throat, chest, anks, belly, undertail coverts and eye ring are red. The wings and tail are dark gray. Adult females have a bright olive-green crown, nape and back. The throat, chest and belly are y ellow-green. There might be some blue feathers showing on the head. The rst-year male and female are similar in color to the adult female. Their song is a sweet, high-pitched thin, warbling sound. Calls are a soft rising "chip." This secretive bird is often dif cult to see as it will hide in dense foliage even when singing from a high perch. Male Painted Buntings will ght with each other while defending their territory. Painted Buntings will forage on the ground or in low brush searching for seeds, spiders, insects and caterpillars. In the winter, they are often seen at feeders in Southern Florida. In the Northeastern corner of Florida they are common breeders who will raise two to three brood from May to mid July. The female lays three or four gray-white egg spotted with brown in a nest that is an open woven cup of grass, leaves roots and animal hair. The eggs are incubated for 11-13 days with the young leaving the nest at approximately two weeks after hatching. This species is in decline and is "near threatened" possibly because of changes in the landscape, cowbird parasitism, and trapping for the pet trade.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 BY JUSTIN DIAZ e Clewiston News“We’ve put two back-to-back great football games together,” Coach Roth stated on Monday following a 38-to-3 win over LaBelle. “We played solid defense against Lake Placid, and played our best defense [of the season] against LaBelle.” Clewiston held Labelle to only two rst downs throughout the entire game, with the Cowboys’ only score coming from a 52-yard eld goal in the second quarter. Equally impressive: the Tiger’s effort on offense. “Offensively we’ve had over 450 yards [combined] the last two games. At this point, we’re nit-picking when we’re nding something to improve on.” The hit that everyone expected the Tigers’ rushing game to take earlier this season has seemingly disappeared. Clewiston’s leading rusher DeMarcus Terry rushed for 186 yards and four touchdowns on only 20 attempts; followed closely by Derry West who nished with over 100 yards on the ground and a 36-yard touchdown rush in the rst quarter. The Tigers only sore spot, which has seemed to stay consistent since the beginning of the season, is their special teams. Clewiston only converted two of its six extra point attempts, having two blocked, one bobbled by the place holder, and one snapped over his head. “Our special teams still need to improve drastically. I was disappointed in our extra point team. When you’re only making two out of six, that’s four points off the board,” Coach Roth said after the game. The Tigers’ special team struggles have dated all the way back to their rst regular season loss against American Heritage; a game sporting a 42-to-13 nal score, and four special team touchdowns given up to the Patriots. “It didn’t really mean anything Friday night, but when you’re playing in the playoffs, every opportunity you get to put points on the board, you’ve got to do that,” said Coach Roth. Heading into what should be another win, the Tigers primary goal for this week is staying focused. With district play over and the Tigers’ playoff picture set, this Friday’s game against the 2-win Okeechobee Brahmans is the last thing on most players’ minds. “The challenge is keeping our kids focused on playing Okeechobee,” stated Coach Roth. “We’ve been out of the playoffs for a couple of years so naturally, I think the players are looking forward to going to Cocoa and playing one of the best teams in the country; but our mindset needs to be on Okeechobee.” The Tigers’ all-time record against Okeechobee makes the matchup more of a bye week then a rivalry game; and considering the fact that the Brahmans have been outscored 233-to126 this season, it’s easy to see why they may be getting overlooked. “We’re going to go out there with the anticipation of winning that game,” replied Coach Roth when asked how dif cult it would be to focus on this week’s matchup. “Okeechobee has a lot better football team then their record indicates, but as coaches we’ve got to be smart about it. We’re not going to go out and play the guys that we need to have ready for the following week, we’re not going to play them 70 snaps; at least, that’s the plan. “Hopefully we can get a lead on them, play some young kids, and give them the opportunity to experience what high school football is all about.” This Friday’s matchup against Okeechobee will mark the last game of the season for the Brahmans, who sit at third in their district after missing the playoffs by one game. The real story for Clewiston lies in their rst trip back to the playoffs in three years, and a chance at winning their rst playoff game over the last ve. After the Dunbar Tigers, who watched Clewiston defeat itself earlier this season, nished off their season with a 22-to-18 win over Sarasota Booker and a awless district record, Clewiston’s rst playoff matchup pits them against the (4-3) Cocoa Tigers. Clewiston travels to Okeechobee this Friday, Nov. 11, and travels to Cocoa on Nov. 18 for the rst game of the 2011 playoffs. Clewiston Crushes LaBelle, Tries Not to Overlook Okeechobee was watching the child while his mother was working her cook job at the local marina. Anthony initially said the family dogs had trampled the boy, but later recanted his story and said that it was his fault – that he dropped the child and shook him in an effort to wake him. Doctors reported severe brain injuries and put the child on a ventilator. In their report, investigators claimed that Anthony took more than four hours to get the child help. Amanda disagrees. She can clearly remember running to her home from her job to avoid having to wait for a ride, and fearing the worst. According to her, Anthony never meant to hurt the child. It was a sad accident that could have happened to anyone else. While she accedes that Anthony shouldn’t have reacted the way he did, or the way that investigators said he did, she can’t blame him. “Everyone in this case is a victim, right down to Anthony. He’s the one that did this, but this is a father who loves his children far more than he could ever love himself.” Because, Amanda says, if you ask anyone who knows him, Anthony was anything but a monster. The couple has six children between them; she has four and he has two other kids from a previous relationship, but he loves all of her children as though they were his, Amanda said. Before they got together, Anthony had been Amanda’s best friend. Sometimes, when Anthony had been away from home for a long time, Amanda said, he would wake his children in the middle of the night, upsetting their mother, to cuddle with his daughters. When the two of them had something to argue about, and Amanda demanded a response from him in front of the children, Anthony would say, “No, not while they’re here.” When Atreyu was delivered as a premature baby, Amanda said Anthony could do nothing but cry. “He’s been an awesome father,” she said. With the accident being so recent, and Atreyu still hospitalized, his parents wonder what they could have done differently that day. Perhaps she shouldn’t have gone to work, she wonders – she woke up that morning not wanting to go. And Anthony cannot stop blaming himself. “Can you imagine what he’s going through? He hates himself so much right now. He hates himself more than anyone ever can hate him.” In jail, Anthony uses the phone to call St. Mary’s Hospital every day, Amanda said. He asks the same thing: “How is my boy?” Better, said Amanda. According to her, doctors said Atreyu will most certainly pull through. While they still have reservations about a full recovery, Amanda has none. She said she’ll place her faith in God. She knew early on that Atreyu would not die, that “God would not take him from me.” Anthony had been at the hospital with Atreyu and Amanda until he was arrested. According to Amanda, investigators promised not to arrest him until “after his son wouldn’t need him anymore.” But when Anthony gave a statement, he was immediately transported to the LaBelle jail where he still is held. Amanda criticizes the lead detective in the case. “I believe he made a snap decision as soon as he knew what was going on. He was out for blood,” said Amanda. “If I could have this man’s badge, I would.” Amanda describes herself as an overly protective mother who has snapped at people over her kids, but she trusts Anthony unconditionally. “I trust him more than anyone with my kids.” It hurts Amanda that her son’s father isn’t at the hospital with them. “This baby knows his voice, his touch, his smell more than anyone else’s,” said Amanda. “It’s more unfair to Atreyu than anyone.” She considers whether Anthony is to blame, but she can’t imagine that he would have hurt Atreyu. “Am I upset? Of course I am. That’s my baby. Do I have my reservation and anger over the accident? Of course I do, I’m human. “If anyone has the right to hate him, it’s me,” said Amanda. Life is a waiting game now for Amanda. She waits for Anthony to be freed from jail. She waits on word from Atreyu’s doctors, looking for signs of a return to a simpler life. CHILDContinued  1 SUBMITTED PHOTO Rev. Thomas, while installed at St. Martin’s Episcopal Church, is also one of the clinic’s board members and Hosick is the CEO/CFO of the clinic. Both men, along with others, do all they can to help those in need of mental care across both counties. There are two mental health clinic in Hendry County, in Clewiston and LaBelle, with a total of 28 employees. These facilities have two psychiatrists and a psychologist that help that consult and help treat mental issues. They have also partnered with other local agencies and groups to be able to reach out as much as possible with options for treatment. As to funding, with the area in an economic struggle, it has been dif cult to keep services running. However, with the grant funding that Hosick relentlessly searching for, help from County Commissioners and local groups, those services continue to function. “The county is a poor county and under the circumstances, we are able to do quite well,” said Thomas. For Hosick, running the clinic is an uphill battle that does not get much attention or aid. But, it’s still worth ghting in his estimation. “The work we have done here is having an effect,” he said. “The stats are 50 percent better than what they were a few years ago. That’s very encouraging.” He continued to explain that it is frustrating to him that many do not know where it is nor the services the clinics provides. There are two reasons that help to explain this. One, the State has speci c rules stating that a mental health facility/ clinic cannot openly advertise its services. The other reason is that there is still quite a stigma concerning mental health care. “It is frustrating to see other causes and facilities receive grants and public money while we work behind the scenes,” said Hosick. “I do prefer to be helping from behind the scenes but I will not deny that we need help to increase services.” For right now, the clinic is making due with what they have in hand are proud that they can hold there own with other counties who do more. Currently, the clinics sees about 1,800 clients per year. The length of time that their clients stay in facilities is shorter than the average due to what is called the “rural culture.” Hosick explained that the since the county has a strong rural culture, in other words a family togetherness, clients will have a better time recovering and receiving the attention and care they need. “Families in the area do take better care of their own when it comes to mental health issues,” he said. “People are bound to know those who have problems and have a greater understanding than they would in larger, more urban areas.” With all this and more that is being offered to Hendry and Glades Counties, counties which are medically under-served, how was the designation made by the Federal of ce? A spokesperson for the FDOH never returned any calls with information by the time this article went to print. So, what those criteria are may never be known. What is known is that services do exist here that serve the needs of not one but two counties. “Things may not be the best of conditions right now, but we’re being creative with everything we have,” said Hosick. “We are here and our doors will always be open for whoever needs us.” MENTALContinued  1 “The challenge is keeping our kids focused on playing Okeechobee.”Coach Roth

BY BIANCA ROSS Hendry County Health DepartmentIn Hendry County 1 out of every 10 15 to 17year-olds have tried a prescription painkiller. In Florida, seven people die everyday due to prescription drugs. Grant Baldwin, PhD, MPH is director of the Division of Unintentional Injury Prevention with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. He reported on the growing epidemic of painkiller overdosing. At the CDC, we deal with the numbers and statistics affecting the public’s health every day. I’ve worked here for most of my career, and rarely do these numbers reveal the full and tragic story they actually represent. The CDC’s report this week on prescription painkiller overdoses is one of these rare instances, con rming a story many of us have heard in communities across America. Prescription painkillers (drugs like oxycodone, hydrocodone and methadone) killed nearly 15,000 people in 2008—one person every forty minutes. These were husbands and sons, mothers and daughters, often struggling with addiction for months or years before losing their lives. And the problem has never been worse. For every person who died of a prescription painkiller overdose in 1999, nearly four died in 2008. We are in the midst of an epidemic. But the number of deaths isn’t the whole story. This sharp rise in prescription painkiller overdoses parallels a similarly large increase in painkiller sales. Four times as many prescription painkillers were sold in the U.S. last year than in 1999. Astonishingly, in 2010 enough painkillers were prescribed to medicate every American adult around-the-clock for a month. Make no mistake: these drugs, when appropriately used and prescribed, can play an important role in improving the quality of life for carefully selected patients. But there are things that everyone, from state policy makers and health care providers to individuals and communities, can do to make sure these drugs are used safely and responsibly. States can support prescription drug monitoring programs—electronic databases that track controlled substance prescriptions, which are promising tools for helping medical professionals identify patients who may be abusing these drugs. Health care providers can follow guidelines for safe painkiller prescribing and screen patients for warning signs of abuse. This is so important because we can reduce the number of people who are abusing and overdosing, while also ensuring that patients with pain are treated safely and effectively. Individuals can also make an impact. More than half of all people who misuse prescription painkillers report getting their drugs from a family member or friend. Individuals must make sure to use prescription painkillers only as directed and to never share them with others. People should also take care to store their prescriptions safely, dispose of them properly and get help if they have substance abuse problems. Preventing prescription painkiller overdoses is a CDC priority. The lives impacted by painkiller abuse and overdose can be found everywhere—a father who becomes addicted to painkillers after a work injury and overdoses, a teenager who takes an old bottle of painkillers from a relative’s medicine cabinet or a mother who loses a son to painkillers only to nd her other child is also addicted. This week’s CDC report on prescription painkiller overdose is a call to action. This epidemic is affecting neighbors and communities. Working together, everyone can turn the tide and have the numbers tell a different story. For more information on prescription drug overdoses, visit www.cdc.gov/injury. Prescription Painkiller Overdose is a Call to Action “Fancy Pantsy, Artsy Party”The creature’s tawny image grew slowly and patiently from an array of green and brown oils. Then in a sequence of repetitive brush strokes, the artist brought life to her subject as the panther’s cold, amber eyes emerged and stared impassively beyond the emerald green hammock. This week, artists from around Lake Okeechobee will be displaying their art paintings at the Clewiston Museum. The paintings will include a broad range of subjects; colorful images of Florida wildlife, beach scenes, agriculture, cowboys and many others. The art show will be a smorgasbord of talent that should whet every art lover’s appetite. We will be sponsoring the big event this Thursday evening, Nov. 10, at the Clewiston Museum from 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. Artists will be exhibiting their work, explaining their techniques and answering questions. Plus, there will be select pieces of art available for purchase. To make the evening even more enjoyable, we’ll have wine, cheese, desserts and music. Tickets can be purchased at the Clewiston Museum. This will be a very special evening, so make plans to attend today. Dress will be casual.

Clewiston Museum Art Show AFTER ‘SUPER BOWL OF FISHING’ WIN, LOCAL RECEIVES CITY’S TOP HONORBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA jzaragoza@newszap.comLess than a handful of people have ever received a key to the city of Clewiston. Now, Scott Martin, prosherman and Clewiston local, can count himself among the chosen few. Scott Martin received the distinguished award at Tuesday night’s Business Bash, an event put together by the Clewiston Chamber of Commerce and local businesses. Mr. Martin was asked to speak at the event, but had no idea that he was receiving the award. Still excited about his big win at the Forrest Wood Cup in Hot Springs, Arkansas, local leaders formally recognized Scott in the presentation in front of the Clewiston business community. “Scott loves his parents, and he loves his wife and children, but he also has the community at heart,” said Rick Miller, mayor of Clewiston. Approximately 50 businesses participated in the well-attended event, which took place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. this past Tuesday in front of the Clewiston Inn. Martin’s parents stood in front of the stage grabbing pictures of their son with their cellphone cameras. Scott thanked them both. His mother and father are themselves no strangers to the world of shing, and indeed Martin’s inspiration for becoming a sherman himself. “Clewiston’s such a special town to me and my family,” said Scott. He recalled how the community has kept abreast on every major tournament he has attended, right up to his big win in Arkansas, following the action on the Internet. He shared that he enjoys talking with people about his tournaments, except when he loses. He’ll drive straight through town and not stop then, he joked. Scott Martin Given Key to the City

And another way of saying We Believe In You 17 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 10, 2011 BY STATEPOINTSleep is vital for children’s overall health and development. That’s why it’s important that children develop good sleep habits, right from the start. “Parents of infants need to know how to help their baby safely fall asleep,” says Robert W. Block, MD, FAAP, of the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP). “And older children will bene t from an environment that helps them get enough sleep.” Here are some tips for safe and adequate sleep from the experts at the AAP: Safer Sleep Babies up to one year of age should always be placed on their backs on a rm surface to sleep. This will reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, which is the leading cause of death in the United States for babies between one month and one year old. “While we don’t know what causes SIDS, we have learned how parents can dramatically lower the risks,” says Dr. Block. Make sure the crib, bassinet or play yard meets current safety standards and hasn’t been recalled. And make sure to keep all objects -including soft toys, blankets and crib bumpers -out of the crib, as they can increase the risk of suffocation or strangulation. Consider using a sleeper instead of blankets, and make sure the baby’s head remains uncovered. The crib can be in the same room as you sleep, but do not place the baby in the same bed as you. Also, keep the baby away from smoke and smokers. Warm, Not Hot Keep the room where your baby sleeps at a comfortable temperature. In general, dress your baby in no more than one extra layer than you would wear. Your baby may be too hot if she is sweating or if her chest feels hot. You may offer a paci er, which can help reduce the risk of SIDS. However, other products like wedges, positioners, special mattresses and specialized sleep surfaces have not been shown to reduce the risk of SIDS. If you are breastfeeding, wait until breastfeeding is going well before offering a paci er, usually around three to four weeks. Children should be taken out of a crib by the time they are 35 inches tall. Establish Routines If your child or teen seems to be having trouble sleeping, try altering the environment or establishing a routine. For example, see if your child sleeps better in a dark room or with a night light. Do not allow a TV in your child’s bedroom, and make sure he or she doesn’t watch or read anything upsetting or scary within two hours of bedtime. Instead, a bath, warm drink or story time will help a child unwind. For more tips to help your young one get a good night’s sleep, visit the AAP’s website for parents, www. healthychildren.org. If sleeping problems persist, consult your pediatrician. Even sleepers with the toughest problems can learn good habits. Sleep Tips for Children and Infants

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Going Out: A Guide to Area Entertainment and Attractions November 2011 Those who live in the Lake Okeechobee area don’t have to go far to see wild animals. Animal Adventures, in rural Glades County on SW Rucks Dairy Road, is home to 13 tigers, four lions, one A frican jungle cat, one black leopard, three cougars, four bob cats, a serval and a Tigon (cross between a tiger and lioness), as well as numerous other wild creatures including snakes, coatamundi and land tortoises. A nimal Adventures is also the temporary home for a black bear who is waiting for his permanent habitat to be constructed at another facility. All of the animals are rescues from other facilities and private owners. In many cases they started out as someone’s “pet” and the owner could no longer control—or a ord to feed—the wild creature. Sue Pearce, who calls the big cats, “my babies,” explained that the fenced portion of the facility currently encloses ve acres. She has dreams of expansion. The ranch is 1,100 acres, she continued. “There’s plenty of room.” These animals must live in captivity in part because they were born and raised in captivity and don’t know how to fend for themselves in the wild. And for some, there simply is no “wild” left. “We, as rescuers, did not choose for them to be in captivity, but only to give them a good life and lots of love since they can’t ever be released into the wild,” she explained. “There has been a lot of controversy over the captive big cats. People are saying they should be left in the wild and be allowed to roam free. I totally agree with this, but if there is no wild, then where are they supposed to run wild? Man continues to destroy the natural habitat of the wild animals, and continue to poach and leaves no choice but to take care of the ones that are already in captivity. This is the only way to preserve the species.” Sue logged thousands of hours as a volunteer at another animal facility to earn the wild animal care certi cations required under Florida law. “I volunteered six days a week for two and a half years,” she recalled. In 2006, Sue Pearce and Jody Crum brainstormed about constructing sustainable sanctuaries on a large scale to bring awareness concerning animals that h ave been removed from their natural environment. Having spent time with sanctuary owners and displaced animals they realized that an opportunity existed to construct habitats that were not only stronger and healthier, but had more impact on educating the public about the animals and their natural environments. Their primary objectives are to provide a refuge for injured, displaced and con scated animals and educate the public by allowing them to experience the animals and their natural environment on an intimate level. Their long term objective is to bring awareness to the public all over the United States and educate children as well as adults concerning environmental health through the preservation of natural habitats and overall animal conservation. They started construction on the facility in July 2009, and received their rst cats in February 2010. In 2011, the non-pro t facility opened to the public on a limited basis, to help o set the cost of maintaining the animals. It costs $280 to $300 a day just to feed the big cats, who each consume 10-20 pounds of meat a day. The grocery bill for the herbivores comes to abou t $400 a week. During the summer, Animal Adventures was closed to the public, due to the heat. On Nov. 5, they reopened on weekends. They take weekday appointments fo r groups of 10 or more. The requested donation is $10 fo r adults; $5 for children ages 3 to 12 (children under the age of 3 are admitted free.) They also o er parties a t the facility or transport animals to your party. For more information, call 863-447-6050. Take a walk on the wild side: Animal Adventures INI Florida/ K. ElskenAnimal Adventures is home to Florida panthers (above) and cougars, as well as African lions. INI Florida/ K. ElskenHenry, a giant land tortoise, was once a little girl’s pet. When the child grew up, and Henry grew large, he found a new home at Animal Adventures. INI Florida/ K. ElskenThis lioness and tiger have been together since they were cubs. When they arrived at Animal Adventures, Sue Pearce tried to separate them and introduce them to other big cats of their own species, but the lioness was so distressed she injured herself by throwing herself against the cage, trying to get to her friend. So the two are housed together for the time being.

Other animal attractions in the area: LAKE OKEECHOBEE—The 20th annual hike around Lake Okeechobee will begin Saturday, Nov. 19, promptly at 8 a.m. from the Pahokee Marina and will nish up back in Pahokee nine days later on Sunday, Nov. 27. One hundred and ten miles in 9 days; just one-step-at-a-time, one-dayat-a-time. Daily hikes range from 9.5 to 15 miles and are done at the individual hiker’s pace. Each day’s segment starts at sunrise, except for day one, and nishes by noon at one of the eight trail-heads around the lake. A shorter introductory hike, a ectionately named the “Wimp Walk,” of only 3.5 miles from Pahokee to Canal Point is available on opening day. Everyone is invited to join in for a day, a weekend or more. There are no fees and you do not h ave to be a member of the Florida Trail Association to join in. This hike is not a backpacking ordeal. Only day packs are needed. Gear is left behind in campgrounds, motels or your vehicles. Daily hikes are held in the early part of the day and afternoons are for relaxing or sightseeing. Dinners are usually enjoyed at a variety of local restaurants. This yearly event is always held during Thanksgiving Week and hikers, friends and family traditionally celebrate Thanksgiving dinner at the Clewiston Inn. There h ave been as many as 90 people from the group there during dinner. Days are spent hiking the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail, which is a major segment of the 1,400 mile Florida National Scenic Trail. Few people h ave experienced the panorama that the dike a ords, a 360-degree view of the lake and lake shore. How many people, even residents of the Glades, h ave seen the vistas all around the Big Lake? Riding in a car is not the same as walking 35 feet, on average, above the surrounding terrain. The views are spectacular. Farm, cattle and urban areas pass by slowly and hikers have a chance to take it all in at a leisurely pace. From a modest start, with eight hikers in 1992, each year has seen the number of participants increase to more than several hundred hikers and well wishers on opening day. This hike is the longest-running scheduled activity in the history of the statewide Florida Trail Association, the volunteer organization that builds and maintains our National Scenic Trail in Florida, The Florida Trail. The Big “O“ Hike was started by the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association With headquarters in Gainesville. The Florida Trail Association has 18 chapters statewide and approximately 6,000 members in the United State and Canada. For information about the 19th annual Big “O” Hike, please contact: Paul Cummings in Lake Worth: cummingsps@att.net or call him at 561-9639906.
