FHP investigators nd marijuana on driverBY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA jzaragoza@newszap.comA man found to be drunk and in the possession of marijuana was responsible for an accident that pinned an unsuspecting victim between a guardrail and a vehicle, according to a report by the Florida Highway Patrol. The accident happened last Wednesday, November 16 at just before 8 a.m. According to the of cial report by Trooper A. Eposito, Jeffrey Charles Mosier, 47, of Crossville, Tenn., had pulled over on the side of the road along a stretch of U.S. 27 to service his vehicle, standing in front of his 1997 Ford F350 while he checked inside the hood. As the man inspected his vehicle, the driver of a 1984 Chevrolet Caliber made his way down the road. Inebriated, William Valentine Hoecherl, 54, of Lake Wales, Fla., drifted away from the outside lane of the highway into the stopped vehicle, striking it from behind. The impact sent the Ford in a southern direction. By the time it stopped traveling, the truck had pinned Mosier to a guardrail. Emergency crews worked to rescue the man and had made an emergency transport to Lee Memorial Hospital in Lee County directly from the accident site. His condition was listed as serious, and it appeared that his injuries were not life-threatening. The driver of the car at fault suffered only minor injuries. A 19-year, passenger riding with the victim was uninjured. Hoecherl faces charges of driving under the in uence and possession of marijuana under 20 grams.

BY MARK KINGThe Lake Okeechobee water level is up, temperature is cooling off, and the bass are moving in off the main lake toward traditional spawning areas. What this all ads up to some great bass shing here on the big lake as we head into our season here in South Florida. The number of bass being caught has been crazy and some really nice ones over seven pounds are showing up almost everyw here on the lake. If you sh a tournament on the lake, you had better have at least thirty pounds in ve sh; records will be broken this year again in tournaments on Okeechobee. I have been shing from Kramer Island to the Monkey Box with some really great success catching bass on both arti cial lures and on the wild shiners. If you like shing with the wild shiners than be prepared to use a lot of them, last week I used more than seven dozen in just the morning and still had the afternoon to sh. The arti cial bite has been really good also but you do have to look a little harder to nd the sh -when you do, they are really stacked up in one area. Some areas that have been really good are Long Point, Ritta Island, Buzzards Roost, East Wall, West Wall, and the Turners Cove area. And that is just what's going on here at the south end of the lake. I usually start shing the outside grass line and move back in the thicker stuff til I nd the sh. The wind and dirtier water from out on the main lake being pushed in to the grass has a lot to do with where these bass are positioned. My arti cial lure selection has been pretty small with Charlie's Worms Zipper Dipper being my go to bait and a jig with a Charlie's Worm Craw and a Salt Stick O being my next two favorite lures. Braided line is a must for shing in the heavy cover and Diamond braid in 65 pound test gets the job done for me, along with this you will need to use a pretty heavy action rod to get these bass out of the grass. You can once again get around on the lake almost anywhere without worrying about hitting the bottom with your motor. God blessed us with water when the rainy season was over and we had lost hope for a good winter here on the lake. He worked his greatness for us and now we are going to have one of our best seasons ever on world famous Lake Okeechobee. So it is time to get your boat out and get on the water because the shing is great and it isn't quite as hot this time of the year to be on the water. The crappie shing has also been really good on the lake and some good areas to try are the outside of Uncle Joe's cut, around Bird Island, and of course the Kissimmee River is always good this time of the year. Duck season is also in and I have had some really good reports on a lot of ducks on the lake, anyone wanting to get out and do some duck hunting can contact me and I will get them set up for a great day of duck hunting on Lake Okeechobee. Good luck, tight lines, and hope to see everyone on the water soon.Capt. Mark King is a full time guide out of Roland Martin’s Marina and Resort in Clewiston Florida.

New study sheds light on possibilitiesBY MICKIE ANDERSON UFFood-safety experts have long believed that Salmonella bacteria could only enter tomatoes through wounds in the stem or fruit — but a new University of Florida laboratory study shows it can also happen another way. Plant pathologist Ariena van Bruggen, a professor in UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, published a paper today in the online journal PLoS One, with research ndings that show — for the rst time — that Salmonella can enter tomato plants through intact leaves, travel through the plant and end up in the fruit itself. But she says she can’t stress enough that it isn’t at all easy for it to happen, even in the lab, and would be unlikely under eld conditions. “The message is that yes, (Salmonella) can be internalized in tomato, but it’s rare — the chance is so low,” she said. “I would tell consumers not to worry too much.” Although van Bruggen, a member of UF’s Emerging Pathogens Institute, described her experiment as a “worst-case scenario,” she said the ndings suggest tomato growers and packers should continue to review their already-stringent safety standards, taking a look at factors such as irrigation water sources, the possibility of wild animals getting too close to plants and the use of surfactants. Keith Schneider, a food safety expert and IFAS faculty member, called the study’s ndings intriguing, but said hand-washing by consumers and food handlers is still likely to have the single biggest impact on whether people become ill from anything they eat. “There is probably a far bigger risk of people becoming sick from not washing their hands, or their kids not washing their hands, than the possibility of this route of infection occurring in nature,” he said. Tomatoes are a $619 million annual industry in Florida and food-safety scares do tremendous damage to growers. In 2008, the industry lost an estimated $100 million when federal health of cials erroneously blamed a Salmonella outbreak on domestically grown tomatoes, only to announce later that contaminated jalapeo and Serrano peppers from Mexico were responsible. Salmonella is among the most common foodborne illnesses, often spread by raw or undercooked meat, poultry or eggs, but sometimes through contaminated produce. It can cause abdominal pain, fever, nausea and vomiting. Results from the 2 -year study were published today in the online, open-access journal Public Library of Sciences (PLoS) One. To test the hypothesis that Salmonella might be able to enter tomato leaves, van Bruggen and two postdoctoral researchers brie y dipped one leaf from each of 84 tomato plants into a potent solution that contained high concentrations of Salmonella, plus a surfactant commonly used by tomato growers to ensure that pesticides or fungicides stay on the plants. Another 42 plants were left as a control group. Later, they tested adjacent, non-inoculated leaves and the tomatoes themselves. The study was conducted over a 10-month period and then replicated. In the study’s rst phase, nine tomatoes from one inoculated plant tested positive for Salmonella. In the second, Salmonella was found in adjacent, non-inoculated leaves from eight tomato plants; as well as 12 tomatoes from two plants that were leaf-inoculated with a different strain of Salmonella. Reggie Brown, manager of the Florida Tomato Committee, which has regulatory authority over most of the state’s tomato production, said the industry has some of the most stringent safety standards in agriculture, anywhere. In Florida, safe tomato production practices are required by law. “Food safety is never an absolute, but we are doing everything that good science and good practices tell us to do to produce the safest product possible,” he said. “Ninety-nine point nine nine nine nine percent of produce is safe.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 24, 2011 Salmonella can Reach Tomatoes Through Leaves SUBMITTED PHOTO

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudobonThe Northern Mockingbird is the state bird of Arkansas, Florida, Mississippi, Tennessee and Texas. During the 19th century Northern Mockingbirds nearly vanished from the East Coast of the United States where they were trapped or young were taken from nests for sale as caged birds, but their numbers have rebounded. The Northern Mockingbird is now a common bird that breeds in Southeastern Canada, the United States, northern Mexico, Bahamas, Cayman Islands and Greater Antilles. It is often seen in suburban habitats and elds on low hanging branches, fences, power lines or on the ground. During harsh weather northern birds may move to southern states. Northern Mockingbirds don’t usually visit backyard feeders, but prefer foraging for insects, berries and seeds This medium-sized songbird is generally 8 12 inches long with a long tail, small head, long thin bill and long legs. The short rounded wings have two wingbars. The white patch on its wings and tail become obvious when the Northern Mockingbird is in ight. They are best known for singing during the day, through the night or during full moon. They are good mimics of other birds, animals, squeaky gates, machinery, car horns, barking dogs and whistling. Humans might be fooled by the Mockingbird’s songs, but their calls often fail to fool other birds, such as the Florida Scrub-Jay. Males may have 50 to 200 songs with females singing more quietly and less often than males. Common calls include a harsh dry “chak” or a piercing series of notes. Nests are built by both the male and female with the male doing most of the work while the female watches for predators. Mockingbird will aggressively defend their nests. The female lays two to six pale blue or greenish white eggs splotched with red or brown in twig nest lined with grasses, dead leaves and trash. Incubation takes 12 13 days with the young being born with light gray down. The male and female feed the young for one to two weeks. Fledglings will leave its parents when it is able to y and nd food on its own. “The oldest Northern Mockingbird on record was 14 years and 10 months old” (Cornell’s All About Birds). Please send high resolution photos for upcoming news articles on songbirds and ducks. Photographer’s submissions will be credited. New and current Hendry-Glades Audubon Society “Facebook Friends” will be entered in a monthly drawing for a “Sibley Field Guide to Birds of Eastern North America” during November and December 2011. “Like” the Hendry-Glades Audubon Society Facebook to enter the next drawing.Inland Birding Fun: Northern Mockingbird (NOMO)

Sign ups will be held Thursday, Dec. 1 at 6 p.m. at the Fairgrounds. Local beauties at Chamber Social The City of Clewiston announced that its redlight safety cameras will begin taking photos of red-light runners at designated intersections beginning November 30, 2011. Photo-enforcement cameras will capture still images and video of red-light running violations. During a 30-day warning period, a warning notice will be issued to the vehicle’s registered owner. There will be no ne for this warning notice. At the completion of the warning period, citations with a ne of $158 will be issued. Redlight safety cameras have been installed at the intersection of US 27/Sugarland Highway at W.C. Owen Avenue and US 27/Sugarland Highway at San Pedro Street. “The warning period will give residents an opportunity to become familiar with the red-light system. We encourage people to slow down and de nitely stop on red before the actual citations begin,” said Police Chief Don Gutshall. “This is a public safety program, and our goal is to deter red-light runners and prevent collisions resulting from these violations.” Florida was the third most deadly state in the nation for red-light running fatalities in 2009. Across the United States, red-light runners killed an average of 885 people and injured 165,000 each year for the past decade. Now, through its road safety camera agreement with American Traf c Solutions, Clewiston joins more than 500 communities across the nation using this lifesaving technology. This year, the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety found red-light safety cameras in 14 large U.S. cities saved 159 lives in a ve-year period, and determined 815 more lives could have been saved if all 99 large cities had used these cameras. Cameras will operate 24-hours a day and capture images of every vehicle running a redlight at the intersection. Warning signs alerting drivers to the red-light cameras have been installed prior to the warning period. The program is administered by American Traf c Solutions, Inc.

In essence, bylaws are laws that are applied locally or in a limited capacity to regulate certain procedures. Further details were not discussed as the topic of conversation switched to a thorough covering of the absentee ballot/ vote by mail campaign. It appears that if the committee can distribute and collect more and more democrat voters to participate in the voting by mail program, the Hendry/Glades committees can qualify for a grant of $2,000. Such an amount would prove to be very useful to the group as it could be utilized for campaigning and outreach efforts. According to committee members, the reason for this push, which is happening nationwide, is to circumvent any possible voter suppression that has traditionally been a dif culty for groups who have always voted Democrat. Such groups include: college students, elderly, minorities, etc. Joe Thomas stated that such voter suppression has occurred in places that contain a strong Republican presence. Since vote-by-mail was originally a Republican creation, the Democratic Party is adapting to the game and using that same program to boost their numbers. The drawback to using the vote-by-mail program is that if there is an small error that is agged, the vote can be held back and investigated thoroughly. The committee is encouraging all voters to update the information on their voter cards so that is up to date. An example was given of an elderly women who was losing her sight. She had used vote-by-mail but her signature was considerably larger than the one she had provided when she rst registered some 35 years ago. Her larger signature was due to her not being able to see what she was writing but her vote eventually was thrown out due to the error. The meeting was wrapped up with a discussion of the Jefferson-Jackson Day event. The event is a major fund raising day for the Democratic Party. An idea was suggested of having the event aboard a riverboat as a cruise. Options were considered as to whether it would be feasible to have the riverboat come up to the LaBelle/Port LaBelle area. Aside from that, the other concern was who would be the guest speaker for the event. Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz's (DFL) name was brought up but and considered the favorite choice. However, the committee decided that she may be considered a little too progressive for some of the area Democrats. In the end, Rod Smith, Chairman of the Florida Democratic Party, was decided upon. A tentative date of late February to rst week of March was chosen to have the event.

All of them belong to the Flying Club and have a great camaraderie with each other. Andrew Couse is all too familiar with ying. Both of his parents are pilots and he has grown up around aircrafts since he was four years-old. He admits that ying to the Tiger away games was a last minute idea. "We had the idea right before the Sarasota game and we were thinking, Why not y up to the game instead of drive?,'" he said. "So, we ew up for that game and kept doing it for all the other games as well. So, what started on a lark has become a regular thing for us." The group has been dubbed the "Air Tigers" by all those who know them. Jimmy Pittman, who has been skydiving for years, was Jacobs' rst student pilot and has been ying with the club ever since. "I've always been interested in ying. I've gone up and jumped out of aircraft before but never landed in one," he said. "It has been a different experience but just as great." He continued to say that on the way to and from the games, there is usually a race to see who gets there rst. Usually, Jacobs gets there rst since he has the fastest plane. Aside from that, everyone watches each other's take offs and landings. If either is a bit rough, the fellow Air Tigers usually get on to them, in a good way, he said. Several of the Air Tigers did y to the Tiger playoff game on Friday against Cocoa. They are hoping that next year's season will have more and more pilots ying with them. "We are a special group of guys and we are all Tigers," said Pittman. SUBMITTED PHOTOThe Air Tigers of the Flying Club have gone up for most of the Tiger away games. Its their hope that more interested iers will join them by the time the next season comes around.

CENTRAL COUNTY WATER CONTROL DISTRICT 402234 CN 11/10,17,24/2011 15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 24, 2011 Roofing Thanksgiving: God at Work and Recognizing itBY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchA writer on worship says it begins when we recognize that we didn’t do it all by ourselves; and that creation points to the one who did – God. When what He did comes on us, we stop to give thanks and praise with all we have; and worship starts, thanksgiving and praise. Noah builds an altar when the ark descends and makes a thanksoffering to God for deliverance (Genesis 8:20). Jesus shares a Passover meal with His disciples. giving thanks (Matthew 26:26ff, Luke 22:17ff, 1 Corinthians 17:23ff). People have always worshipped their Creator-Redeemer-Sustainer by thanking in recognition for the goodness and love bestowed. We share with those who have given us the example through feelings that they must have held. Noah was scorned by those who watched his creation of a large and cumbersome boat in his front yard. It paid off and salvation of humanity came through it as the story goes, but not without rough and dif cult moments. It would have been tempting to land and say “Well, Lord, what an uncomfortable trip and what a dif cult time – was that necessary?” Instead, Noah sees the big picture: God has saved, God has blessed Noah, and with the realization comes worship: thanking God for being there and for what Has done. The Lord as He faces the end of His earthly life, shares a meal with His disciples, and thanks His father for what has been provided. The plea will be “deliver this cup..not my will but thy will,” and then shares the meal at the heart of worship with Thanksgiving. Every year at this time, I re ect on how we could join with those who say, “Ain’t it awful!” when they look at all the problems in the world, the tragedies at home, their own losses or lack of things. Then I try to recall all of the blessings that have come my way, too. God has given gifts, talents, our daily bread, a good land in which we live, opportunity and blessings. I choose to look to all who give thanks in spite of all the reasons we might feel we could complain. Have times been better? Yes; and then I remember times in my own life when things were better and things were worse; and all of the ups and downs that come with just being alive. Then it is up to me to see the big picture; and then give thanks to God for all that He has done. Our founding fathers, likewise, set the example. A rough ocean voyage to Plymouth Rock and a new world that had yet to be built, leaving behind families and the comforts of familiarity, and being prepared to struggle and face losses yet unknown but very likely to happen. In spite of it all, they too gave thanks. They knew God was guiding, and they would do their part. They did, He did and we give thanks today because of His being with them and with us too. Washington-Lincoln and ThanksgivingBY JACKIE MILLER, EVANGELIST First Christian ChurchIn 1789, George Washington issued his Thanksgiving Proclamation to the American people, reminding them how vital it is to set aside a special day of worship with grateful hearts. “Whereas it is the duty of all nations to acknowledge the providence of Almighty God, to obey His will, to be grateful for His bene ts, and humbly to implore His protection ... a day of public thanksgiving and prayer, to be observed by acknowledging with grateful hearts the many and signal favors of Almighty God, especially by affording them an opportunity peaceably to establish a form of government for their safety and happiness. Now. I do assign Thursday, the 26th day of November next, to be devoted by the people of these States to the service of that great and glorious Being who is the bene cent author of all good that was, that is, or that will be. And also that we may then unite in most humbly offering our prayers and supplications to the great Lord and Ruler of Nations and beseech Him to pardon our national and other transgressions ... to promote the knowledge and practice of true religion and virtue, and the increase of science among them and us; and generally to grant unto all mankind such a degree of temporal prosperity as He alone knows to be best. the third day of October, A.D.1789.” Also, we would well to remember Abraham Lincoln’s words in his Thanksgiving Proclamation in 1863: “We have been the recipients of the choicest bounties of Heaven; we have been preserved these many years in peace and prosperity; we have grown in numbers, wealth and power as no other nation has ever grown. But we have forgotten God. We have forgotten the gracious hand which preserved us in peace and multiplied and enriched and strengthened us. We have vainly imagined, in the deceitfulness of our hearts, that all these blessings were produced by some superior wisdom and virtue of our own. Intoxicated with unbroken success, we have become too self-suf cient to feel the necessity of redeeming and preserving grace, too proud to pray to the God that made us.” Psalm 95:2. 7 “Let us come before His presence with thanksgiving. Let us shout joyfully to Him with psalms. For He is our God, and we are the people of His pasture and the sheep of His hand.”Getting GrumpyBY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchGuess which of Snow White’s seven dwarves is most popular? If you guessed, “Grumpy,” then you agree with the people who have made “Grumpy” shirts one of Disney’s big sellers. It’s not so surprising, since “grumpy” seems to be the mood of a lot of Americans these days. With the political race heating up, it seems like nobody is really excited about anybody -Republican or Democrat. There are those opposed to spending more money and those who want to stop Wall Street and people making money. Some don’t like what the president’s doing; some don’t like what congress is doing; some don’t like what anybody is doing. One great desire in some presidential election is to have someone I can really vote for rather than using my vote to vote against someone I fear. Sometimes I feel like voting “none-of-the-above.” Our country is aching for a leader who won’t let us down. We are looking for a person of integrity who can actually do something about the problems facing us and our nation. As much as human leaders may have let us down, it doesn’t change the fact that our hearts are hungry for someone to look to. Someone who can take us where we haven’t been able to go ourselves. We are longing for someone who totally lives what he or she says; someone who not only promises, but delivers. Our desire is to nd someone whom we can follow with con dence. There really is a hole in our hearts that’s starved for a great leader in our life. Several years ago, we heard about “the miracle on the Hudson.” The jetliner’s engines had been disabled on takeoff by a ock of birds, and it looked like a tragic crash could be the only outcome. But thankfully, their pilot that day was Captain “Sully” Sullenberger, a veteran ghter pilot, airline pilot, and crash investigator. He was probably one of the few pilots who could have brought that plane in safely. It would be nice to have a captain like that in the cockpit of every ight I’ve own, but I’ve never been given the option to pick the pilot for my ights. I have, however, been able to pick the pilot for my life. Jesus is the one Pilot I know who can bring me in safely, no matter what happens. Make Him Captain of your life ight and He will bring you in safely as well. RELIGION COLUMNS Pastor John Hicks. Rev. Sam Thomas. “Every year at this time, I re ect on how we could join with those who say, ‘Ain’t it awful!’ Then I try to recall all of the blessings that have come my way, too.” — Rev. Sam Thomas

Redemption despite lossBY JUSTIN DIAZ e Clewiston News“We keep saying we’ve got to take baby steps; this was one of them,” replied assistant coach Stevie Barnes after the Tigers’ 2011 season ended following a 65-0 loss to Cocoa High. The Tigers nished their rst playoff game since 2008 giving up eight rushing touchdowns and 358 yards on the ground against a Cocoa team that, prior to their ESPN-televised season opener, hadn’t lost a game in 32 consecutive matchups; taking home the state championships three years in a row and looking now, to make it four. The Cocoa Tigers nished every drive, from kickoff to post-game handshakes, with a touchdown. Clewiston nished the game with only 7 yards on the ground after 24 attempts; averaging less than a foot per carry. The only time Clewiston’s offense managed to see any movement was when they leaned on the passing game, picking up 157 yards on a season-high 25 attempts, but nishing with no touchdowns and two interceptions. That being said, the Clewiston Tiger 2011 season has of cially come to a close. Considering the fact that the Tigers have now added another season to their years-without-a-playoff-win streak, closed out the year with a game that wasn’t even remotely close, and were outscored by 163-27 combined between their four losses, it would seem like there would be more than enough negative to draw from this season. On the other hand, when you look at the season as a whole and how the Tigers went from having two consecutive 4-win seasons to ending the year with 7 wins, landing their rst playoff appearance in 3 years, nearly breaking two all-time records – most passing yards in a season and most receiving yards in a season – by Tyler Clemmons and Ahmad Richards respectively, and how all of this was done despite losing key, starting players to offeld controversy mid-way through the regular season, it would be hard to argue that the Tigers aren’t heading in the right direction. With the majority of the team and the team’s most productive offensive players returning for one last year – including leading receiver Ahmad Richards, quarterback Tyler Clemmons, and leading rusher Demarcus Terry – next year’s chances of making another run for the playoffs doesn’t seem like so much of a stretch. On the downside, those talks are still a year away. With nearly 365 days between now and the next time Clewiston will get another chance to see the post-season -all that’s left to do is wait. 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.11/30/11Exp. 11/30/11Exp. 11/30/11(D2750) (D7140) FROM (D9310) (D0330)CROWNSEXTRACTIONS$499LIMITED TIME ONLY IMPLANTOLOGYISNOTARECOGNIZEDSPECIALTYBYTHEAMERICANDENTALASSOCIATIONANDFLORIDABOARDOFDENTISTRY.
