A man teared up recounting how he held on to his son while two men impersonating police ransacked his home and held a gun to his head. Minutes later, the man chased after the robbers, and dodged bullets in an attempt to retrieve their tag number. On September 29, at approximately 7:30 p.m., Santiago Medina and his child were watching television at their home in the Sherwood Subdivision when two men showed up at their doorstep, claiming to be police of cers. They wore dark clothing and a badge that they prevented Medina from getting a closer look at. Something didn't feel right about the situation to Medina. The men were being too aggressive, he thought. Medina attempted to get a closer look at the badge, but the men forced him into his home and told him to "get on the ground." All the while, his son was standing nearby. They put a gun against Medina's back, Medina reacting by grabbing the gun with his hand in an attempt to wrestle it away from the man. At this point it was obvious that the men weren't who they said they were. Medina may have been able to grab the gun away from the man but let go when the barrel during the struggle pointed in the direction of his fouryear-old boy. So Medina relented and allowed the men to tackle him to the oor. "I couldn't take a chance that the gun would hit my son," he said. When the robbers became distracted, Medina grabbed his son and hugged him tightly to him to shield him from the gun-wielding robbers. One of the men got on top of Medina and zip tied his feet together. The criminals were yelling to each other for what felt like an eternity to Medina, who had told them where the family's gold jewelry was stored. Looking back, Medina thinks the men were only there for a few minutes. The robbers shouted frantically at one another, with one of them convincing the other to leave, eeing in a gold in color SUV, a Tahoe or similar vehicle, Medina said. In a rage, Medina got loose, grabbed his son, placing him in the front passenger seat, and BY TIMOTHY SAENZ e Clewiston NewsThe Clewiston Tigers could have given up. They were down, 26-0, in the third quarter after they ceded two easy touchdowns to defending district champion Dunbar to open the second half. It was the Tigers' homecoming yep, Dunbar has the same team nickname, as did Martin County and the home school put its pageantry on display: the stigma of being the home school's homecoming opponent served as a psychological ploy, a message of condescension. It just made you want to run for a few touchdowns and bowl someone over along the way. That's almost what happened. After the touchdown and twopoint conversion that gave Dunbar its 26-0 lead, Clewiston sophomore Lenorris Gaines returned the kickoff to the Dunbar 40. A dead ball personal foul moved the ball to the 25.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 18, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Of cial Florida State Bird List has 514 bird species. To view this list of native and established nonnative birds go to records at www.fosbirds. org. According to the Great Florida Birding and W ildlife Trail website there are "at least 196 nonnative bird species that have been released in Florida, 13 of which are considered established or naturalized with breeding (self-sustaining) populations in the wild." To help document the locations of nonnative bird species go to the FOS website or to the Early Detection and Distribution Mapping System (EDDMAPS) website at www.eddmaps.org. One nonnative species, the Pin-tailed Whydah, was rst reported in Florida in the 1980's. They have been observed in several counties recently including Hendry County, but they haven't been reported breeding in the wild. "Whydah" is the name of a town in Nigeria where this small nch is commonly found. They are also called "Widow Birds" due to the adult male's long black tail extension that can be twice its body length during breeding season. These birds are commonly found throughout tropical Africa and are present in Puerto Rico. Adult birds have brown eyes, a bright red beak and black legs. The adult breeding male is glossy black above with a white underside. Its lower back and sides of its head are white and it has a white stripe across the wings. The adult female and non-breeding male has streaked brown upperparts, whitish underparts and a black face pattern. Juveniles look like the female, but have duller plumage and grayish bill. The Pin-tailed Whydah's calls can be a series of high-pitched, short squeaky notes or a sharp "chip chip chip." They live in forests, gardens, parks and farmland where they forage on the ground for seeds and insects. This nonnative bird does not build a nest. The female lays her eggs in another bird's nest, but does not destroy the "host" bird's eggs. The Pintailed Whydah hatchlings learn the calls and patterns of the foster parents.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 18, 2012 You may have heard the term COPD before -either in a radio or television commercial. COPD, short for chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, is a serious lung disease that over time makes it hard to breathe. Also known as emphysema or chronic bronchitis, it is the third leading cause of death in the United States, but as many as 12 million Americans don’t even know they have it. Unfortunately, symptoms are often shrugged off as a normal part of getting older or a consequence of being out of shape. And during cold and u season, COPD symptoms can also be mistaken for that cold or cough that just won’t go away. But COPD can be a dangerous health hazard. If left untreated, it can have debilitating effects on everyday activities. Affecting one in ve adults in the U.S. over the age of 45 and an estimated 24 million Americans, as many as half remain undiagnosed. In people who have COPD, the airway tubes that carry air in and out of your lungs are partially blocked, making it hard to breathe. The disease develops slowly and usually worsens over time. So don’t ignore the rst signs of COPD, which include a chronic cough, hacking, wheezing and shortness of breath. COPD occurs most often in people age 40 and over with a history of smoking, affecting both current and former smokers. However, as many as one out of six people with COPD have never smoked. Other risk factors include long-term exposure to second hand smoke, certain chemicals, and dust or fumes in the workplace. In some people, COPD can be caused by a genetic condition known as alpha-1 antitrypsin, or AAT, de ciency. “While there is no cure for COPD -early diagnosis and treatment can help people with the disease improve their symptoms and get back to the things they love doing,” said James P. Kiley, PhD. Director, Division of Lung Diseases, at the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute, part of the National Institutes of Health. “As we head into the colder months, take the rst step to breathing better. Learn more about COPD and schedule an appointment to talk with your doctor or health care provider about your lungs.” COPD can usually be diagnosed by a doctor or health care provider during a regular of ce visit with a simple, non-invasive breathing test called spirometry. If you or a loved one experiences any of the symptoms of COPD, take some time to learn more about it. Visit http://COPD.nhlbi.nih.gov for more information. With proper diagnosis and treatment, people with COPD can live longer and improve their quality of life. Chronic Cough or Cold Could Be COPD: Learn More, Breathe Better COURTESY PHOTO

Adding 25 pounds of elemental sulfur per acre boosted yields by 1.7 tons per acre in the study, said Bielinski Santos, an associate professor with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences and part of the research team responsible for the paper. Sulfur is an important major nutrient and one of the ways it reaches agricultural elds is via atmospheric deposition. However, in recent years the amount of sulfur in the atmosphere has declined, due to tougher clean-air standards. So some farmland may not have the same sulfur content it once did. “Growers should be aware that sulfur-related de ciencies are now more common than a few years ago in vegetables and small fruit crops,” said Santos, who is based at UF’s Gulf Coast Research and Education Center in Balm. There are no eld tests available for soil sulfur content, Santos said. So he recommends adding a sulfur amendment to soil once each year. In the study, scientists grew tomatoes on sandy soil at the Balm center. Treatments were set up using sulfur amendments ranging from 25 pounds to 200 pounds per acre. The results showed that soil amended with 25 pounds per acre yielded 1.7 tons more marketable fruit per acre, compared to a control plot with no sulfur amendment. Adding more sulfur had little additional bene t, Santos said. The 25 pounds per acre falls within UF/IFAS recommendations for Florida vegetable production. Santos said that possible sulfur sources include gypsum, elemental sulfur and sulfatebased fertilizer. He added that a UF/IFAS research team has conducted similar experiments with strawberries and found similar results. That study will be published in the coming months.

This will be the start of the 21st annual hike around Lake Okeechobee on the Herbert Hoover Dike, 35 feet above the surrounding countryside. Hikers assemble at the Pahokee Marina ready to take the rst step at 8 a.m., heading north for a ten day, 110 mile trek. But it’s not as dif cult as it seems. In all actuality the hike is a series of one day hikes and participants can join or leave the other hikers at any trail head around Lake Okeechobee. Popular hikes are the rst day, a 3.5-mile “Wimp W alk” from Pahokee to Canal Point or the full day 12 mile walk to Port Mayaca. Hikers are shuttled back to the day’s starting point. There is no charge for the hike, and anyone is welcome to join the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association in this, what is believed to be the longest running long distance hike in the United States. In recent years, participants completing the entire hike have ranged in age from 9 to 92 years old. Anyone in reasonably good health is welcome to join us in enjoying the outdoors and making new friends. Campgrounds or motels and meals for those requiring them are at the hiker’s expense. Of special interest is Thanksgiving Dinner at the historic Clewiston Inn.

After examining an eye found on a south Florida beach this week, researchers from the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) believe the specimen came from a sword sh. Genetic testing will be done to con rm the identi cation. "Experts on site and remotely have viewed and analyzed the eye, and based on its color, size and structure, along with the presence of bone around it, we believe the eye came from a sword sh," said Joan Herrera, curator of collections at the FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research Institute in St. Petersburg. "Based on straight-line cuts visible around the eye, we believe it was removed by a sherman and discarded." The approximately softball-size eye was recovered by a citizen in Pompano Beach on Wednesday. FWC staff received the eye later that day. Sword sh are commonly shed in the Florida Straits offshore of south Florida at this time of year. A highly migratory sh, sword sh can be found from the surface to as deep as 2,000 feet. Sword sh in the Atlantic can reach a maximum size of over 1,100 pounds, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. Sword sh feed on a wide variety of sh and invertebrates. For more information on sword sh, including shing regulations, visit MyFWC.com. The weather may be getting cooler, but that doesn't mean people who are impacted by allergens are in the clear. From dust and dander to seasonal pollen, millions of people will sneeze, wheeze and cough their way through the months ahead. The experts at Sun Products, makers of Snuggle, all and Wisk laundry products, offer these steps to help make your home a safer haven from that which af icts you.Bust DustAllergens are hiding all over the home. Regular dusting and vacuuming will eliminate much of the problem. Just be sure to clean your vacuum lter often. And don't overlook fabrics in your home like upholstered chairs and drapes, as dust, mites and other allergens can collect here easily. Don't suffer while cleaning. Use a mask to avoid coming into contact with the allergens you're trying to eliminate.Wash SafelyThe irony of keeping your home spic and span for the sake of allergy management is that many cleaning supplies can aggravate the problem. Ammonia, for example, can be quite harsh on the eyes and nose. Using a hypoallergenic, fragrance-free, all-purpose cleaner will make scrubbing the bathroom and kitchen a much more pleasant experience. Likewise, bedding and clothing are notorious for collecting and trapping common allergens. According to a study by Grana, an international science journal, a large t-shirt can trap up to 7 million pollen grains on a peak pollen day. Remove everyday allergens trapped in your garments and bedding with a fragrance free detergent designed for sensitive skin. For example, all free clear detergent, which is the number one detergent brand recommended by dermatologists and allergists for sensitive skin, will eliminate 99 percent of tree and grass pollen, and ragweed pollen, the number one fall allergen. Free of potential irritants like dyes and perfumes, it will also help bust pet dander and dust mite matter. More information can be found at www.all-laundry.com/freeclear.Keep Allergens OutWhen you walk around outside your clothes can collect and absorb allergens and irritants. Shoes are magnets for grass, tree and ragweed pollen. Leave your shoes on the porch, especially after walking through grass. Change out of your clothes when you get home, depositing them directly into the hamper.Stay VigilantYou can stay informed with pollen-level maps and recent allergen news. Visit the all free clear Facebook page for allergy resources and management tips. Get a handle on your snif es and congestion this season by freeing your home of allergens. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 With Crizal No-Glare lenses, neither smudges nor scratches can keep you from the clearest vision possible.

This compares with the national average that has fallen 2.8 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.77/g.. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 28.8 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 9.4 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 9.0 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 29.6 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. "The national average has again seen a decrease in the last week, as California joins much of the rest of the United States in seeing lower prices," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "Even though there hasn't been a massive decline in California retail prices, the fact that prices have stopped rising there has helped tip the national average lower. In the week ahead, we could continue to see declines as wholesale prices fell lower late last week, meaning gas stations have additional room to drop their prices," DeHaan said. Gas Price Update

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 18, 2012 There is no greater foundation for a county than education. It is with that premise that the Hendry County Economic Development Council has created a Task Force to link the business community with their educational system. While much of the early work of the Task Force has focused on the macro level of getting something like this started, more recent work has started to show tangible results in terms of collaboration between education and businesses. So why attempt something like this in Hendry County? The simple answer is because the young people in Hendry County deserve the best educational system possible to help prepare them for life beyond Hendry County schools. The more dif cult answer is because pointing ngers regarding challenges will not help secure a better educational system in Hendry County. The best counties in America rally around dif cult issues and nd creative solutions to improve. This simple statement is always the most dif cult to achieve because humans and organizations often tend to operate in silos, are territorial, worry about our own environment, become distracted by less important issues and so on. Right now there is enough momentum to push forward and strive for greater achievement. We are shooting for being one of those counties in America that pulls together under dif cult circumstances and nds creative solutions for the overall betterment of Hendry County and our children and young adults. Ultimately a better Hendry County with prepared graduates will equate to a workforce that will meet the demands of the business community. Here are some details regarding Task Force actions to date. Each Hendry County school has a business member of the Task Force assigned to serve on their Strategic Action Committee (SAC). There is now a more concentrated effort to have speakers from the business community in the classrooms and there is a subcommittee of the Task Force to focus on businesses and their employees to become engaged with education. There is a focus on nding suitable, affordable housing for teachers coming to Hendry County to teach our children. We need to retain the best of these teachers and housing is one component of that retention. Social activities are being arranged for new teachers to meet community/business people so they feel more at ease with their transition to Hendry County. The EDC Leadership Alumni has agreed to become readers for our early school age children to help them get off to a better start in school. There is a movement to lobby the legislature for full day funding for Pre-Voluntary Kindergarten. Right now the state only funds for half a day. Hendry County is the recipient of a Turnaround Grant' and speci c goals are being crafted as of this writing. There is a focus on Florida Kindergarten Readiness Screener (FLKRS) which will help determine what Hendry County Pre-Kindergarten schools are doing to prepare children for Kindergarten. An outreach program is being considered to get more parents involved with the education of Hendry County children. The current members of the EDC Education Task Force are: Mali Gardner, Karson Turner, Steve Nesbit Sr., Antonio Perez, Duncan MacDonald, Tris Chapman, John Benkert, Tuesday Tritt, Lisa Kelley, Gordon Swaggerty, Jodi Bell, George Duckstein, Pat Langford and Gregg Gillman. Also worth mentioning is that Hendry County will have 20 representatives at the Southwest Florida Education Summit 2nd Annual event in Fort Myers on October 25. US Sugar, Hilliard Brothers and Hendry County EDC are helping to sponsor this event. We are pleased that a regional approach to improving education is also underway. If you have an interest in bringing your positive ideas to help improve Hendry County and Education please email Gregg Gillman at gregg@hendryedc.com. Education/Businesses Team Up in Hendry County Marine Corps Pvt. Jose A. Mejia, son of Yamile R. Leiva of Clewiston and Timothy J. Cottiers, of Central Islip, New York, earned the title of United States Marine after graduating from recruit training at Marine Corps Recruit Depot, Parris Island, South Carolina. For 13 weeks, Mejia stayed committed during some of the world's most demanding entry-level military training in order to be transformed from civilian to Marine.

One citizen’s opinion!I left the big city when I retired to live in the idyllic City of LaBelle. I came here with the intention of melding into the culture and lifestyle of this community and perhaps contributing to the ongoing activity and growth of Hendry County. I certainly have no desire to impose my views or political beliefs on the good citizens who have spent their lives here making the city and county what they are today. No, I wish to be a positive team member in the future of LaBelle. The present campaigning for the upcoming election seems contentious and in some instances ugly rife with innuendo and misinformation. Perhaps I, too, have been misled in my search for the truth regarding the histories and quali cations of the various candidates, so I would like to express my opinions and allow your readers to set me straight on issues wherein I am in error. In the race for Property Appraiser, Kristina Kulpa is challenging incumbent Phil Pelletier. I have met Mr. Pelletier and nd him to be a friendly, personnable man, with whom I could enjoy a great friendship. As property appraiser, I question his quali cations in that he has no previous experience as an appraiser, nor has he attended available educational training for this job, and little or no experience as a strong negotiator. His statements regarding US Sugar having their taxes raised to pay their "fair share" sounds cliche and imprudent. The law allows the appraiser a certain range within which he may assess the amount of tax levied. Mr. Pelletier has elected to charge US Sugar the maximum amount allowed, an amount that could adversely affect that company's ability to maintain its current level of employment. US Sugar has published an open letter to the voters of Hendry County suggesting that Mr. Pelletier's reelection could have a negative impact on the company's ability to continue with business as we now know it. Kristina Kulpa was the Property Appraiser for many years, [16 ?] and seemed to do the job with ef ciency and cost effectiveness. I have heard dissenters say she cut a "sweet deal" with Sugar a few years ago when they protested theit assessment. It is my belief that Ms. Kulpa and Sugar were at loggerheads in their negotiations so both parties agreed to invite a quali ed mediator research the problem and make recommendations for resolution. Both Kulpa and Sugar agreed with this proffered solution and so the matter ended. If this was a "sweet deal" how did Ms. Kulpa personally pro t? Isn't that what a "sweet deal" accomplishes ? I have further heard that Ms. Kulpa should not be elected because she led suit against the County for election fraud. Is she a bad person for calling the Supervisor of Elections to task, or is the County not answerable to its citizens. In reviewing Kulpa's education and previous training, she is extremely quali ed for the of ce of Property Appraiser and I would hope the wise electorate of Hendry County agrees. I would also like to respond to those who would vilify US Sugar for appealing to the voters for help with their tax situation. Unreasonably high taxes levied by a well meaning but misguided government,have caused numerous employers to le banruptcy or relocate outside our County. Consider the devastation if US Sugar was forced to leave Hendry County. Wes BartlettDear Editor and Hendry County Residents: I don't have to tell any of you how much I love this sweet, sweet community with all the good and hardworking people who live here. I have lived most of my adult life here, and I am 93 years young now. Our community has always been blessed with the lovely waters of Lake Okeechobee, the rich and abundant soils of our elds and the strong agricultural presence of U.S. Sugar Corporation. I am proud to say that I worked for U.S. Sugar for more than 40 years. My salary with U.S. Sugar was better than I could have gotten anywhere else in town and my bene ts included good insurance and a good company-provided retirement. Thousands of retirees like me are now living on that retirement. So, it is almost more than I can bear to see one of our elected of cials standing out and badmouthing U.S. Sugar like Mr. Pelletier has done. It seems to me that he has a personal ax to grind with U.S. Sugar. I have always thought that our public of cials should be polite and well-mannered to everyone because we pay their salaries. They should not bad mouth and try to run our biggest and best business out of town with higher taxes. I am writing this letter to remind every person in Hendry County that U.S. Sugar has been and hopefully always will be the lifeblood of this community. Not only are they the largest employer, providing thousands of good jobs with insurance and retirement bene ts that are hard to come by these days, but the Company also is the most generous benefactor that a community can have. Take a good look around at all the good things that U.S. Sugar has given to this community. In Clewiston, we have a gorgeous swimming pool, a recreation hall for our youth, a great library, and a civic center auditorium where all kinds of public and private events are held, including my beautiful 93rd birthday celebration. I thank everyone who attended that. We also have beautiful ball elds for our sports activities and the pride of the Clewiston Tigers, Cane Field. It has been said many times that Cane Field rivals some college football elds. For a little town like Clewiston, that is amazing and we have had some amazing athletes that have bene ted from it. All of these things are here because of U.S. Sugar's generosity for many, many years. If you doubt how good U.S. Sugar has been for our beautiful little community, take a drive around Lake Okeechobee and look at the other small communities and you will see that none of them have all the many wonderful amenities that we take for granted but enjoy every day here. Maybe we all need to take a deep breath, look around and count our many, many blessings. My blessings will always include having a good neighbor like U.S. Sugar in town. I pray that our beloved children, grandchildren and great grandchildren will be able to say that too.Opal Hancock 863-983-875Dear Editor, The property appraiser election affects all of us, not just large businesses like U.S. Sugar. In the midst of the struggling economy, more taxes on any business or person will hunt growth and economic development for everyone. Although the property appraiser does not levy taxes, he is the rst step in determining the amount of those taxes for each taxpayer through his assessments. And although I appreciate Mr. Pelletier's recently published arguments, appraising property is not exactly a precise science. There is plenty of wiggle room when any appraiser, including an elected property appraiser, determines fair market value. Although some of you may be taken back by U.S. Sugar's plea for tax relief because you hear of strong sugar prices, you should know that those strong prices have been short lived. In fact, the days of strong sugar prices seem to be behind us. Sugar prices seem to be quickly returning to levels where sugar farming is only marginally pro table. Therefore, the effect of these new taxes on U.S. Sugar is not insigni cant. I have been an attorney, real estate broker and farmer in Clewiston for almost 20 years, and my businesses depend on companies like U.S. Sugar, its growers, employees and vendors. Remember, it was not that long ago that many of us were terri ed of the prospect of losing U.S. Sugar and its 1,700 well-paid employees. The impact of losing such a key player in our local economy would be devastating to the local restaurants, shops and business owners as well as local sugarcane farmers who would be left without a place to process their cane. I make these points simply to emphasize that not all bene ts from a big employer and big companies like U.S. Sugar can be measured in real property tax dollars generated. Although I am for lower taxes and assessments for us all, one can not fault any individual or company for doing all it can to make itself competitive in today's world. What sense does it make to make U.S. Sugar pay more taxes in this struggling economy? Do we really want to make our strongest employer less competitive? As sugar prices return to historic lows, where sugar farming in the U.S. is only marginally profitable, do we want our strongest employer to move or expand their operations overseas like other local big sugar companies are doing? Do we really want to risk the potential job loss and related business loss just because the line in the sand has been drawn and we are not backing down? Let's support our local employer in their desire to remain local.Sincerely, Antonio R. PerezDear Editor, My vote in the General Election will be guided by who is best for our local economy and who best will help us create more jobs here in Hendry County In the race for Hendry Property Appraiser that choice is very clear. Kristina Kulpa fought for lower property taxes during her tenure as property appraiser and she is running on a platform of Fair Taxes and More Jobs. I agree with Kristina that Hendry Property owners deserve some bene t of the doubt when it comes to paying property taxes. I also agree with Kristina that government should be helping create jobs rather than preventing us from creating more jobs. I am very concerned that our current Property Appraiser, Mr. Pelletier has taken to attacking our local businesses and demanding they pay higher taxes. His vendetta against our county's largest employer is disturbing. I expect better from the people we elect to serve and that is why I will be voting for Mrs. Kulpa.H. MattesonDear Editor, In regard to U.S. Sugar and property taxes, I think that many people are missing the bigger picture here. As a longtime resident of Clewiston (29 years), and yes, an employee of U.S. Sugar, I know that having a major employer like U.S. Sugar in our community is much like having a golden goose. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Highway 721 west of Lake Okeechobee on the Brighton Seminole Indian ReservationSee Players Club for more details.

The Ladies Auxiliary will have our monthly meeting at 4 p.m. on Saturday, Oct. 20. After the meeting we have a full evening scheduled, beginning with our “Help Fill Our Cups” drawing, which will take place at 7 p.m. Our winner will receive funds from the Ladies Auxiliary to pay for her mammogram. We will also have a second drawing for a beautiful hand-crafted Breast Cancer Awareness Necklace. Throughout the evening we have an auction for the “Bra” purses that LA members have made. They are too cute and one of a kind. Proceeds from the auction will go to our Breast Cancer Awareness campaign that was chosen by our Department President, a breast cancer survivor, as LAVFW special project. Then we have everyone’s favorite, Bar Bingo, which will begin at 6:00 p.m. If you haven’t played you are missing a lot of fun and laughter! The public is invited. On Friday, Oct. 26, from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. the Ladies Auxiliary will host our 2nd annual Halloween House of Horror for the community. This year we have added a Hayride, Go Fishing Booth and a Hay Scramble for those too young or frightened to go through the House of Horror. Food will be available also. Last year’s attendance to the House of Horror allowed us to help two local families during Thanksgiving and we hope to be able to do the same this year. Ladies Auxiliary Happenings SUBMITTED PHOTOAwareness ClubHarvest Academy Christian School recently started an Awareness Club. This club involves a group of students who bring awareness to different diseases, cancers, and other causes. Students in the awareness club help raise money, donate items, and bring awareness to the community. This club was started out of a desire to want to bring an awareness to the all of the challenges many face in life and to inform the students and the community. Wednesday, Oct. 10, was “Wear Orange and Make it End Unite Against Bullying Day.” At Harvest Academy Christian School our students in the Awareness Club helped decorate the campus orange and students dressed in orange for the day. People have forgotten what U. S. Sugar has done for the community and people of the community, both openly and behind the scenes. U. S. Sugar has been a good citizen of the community and has taken care of the people of the community in ways that only few people know. If people only knew what U. S. Sugar has quietly done to support people in need, during medical emergencies, supporting education, supporting local agencies, supporting the local youth, and providing infrastructure to support the local communities…We need to be careful that we don’t get caught in a “what have you done for me lately” mentality. U. S. Sugar, along with the hard working employees of U. S. Sugar and those of the local communities, is the reason we enjoy the luxuries that we enjoy. For the past 83 years, U.S. Sugar has produced sugar, cattle, vegetables, citrus, railroads and renewable energy. For each of these operations, they have hired mostly local people. Generations of local people have made good careers for themselves working for U.S. Sugar and its subsidiaries. Good salaries and bene ts have enabled working folks like us to raise families and send their children to school and I am proud to be one of those people. Thanks to U.S. Sugar’s ability to adapt, our company has remained in business while half of all sugar producing businesses in the U.S. have closed since 1985. Let me say that again, half of all sugar-producing businesses in the U.S. have closed since 1985. Yes, times have changed, but whether you choose to acknowledge it or not, U. S. Sugar is still a good corporate citizen and still contributes to the local communities. However times have changed. The cost of doing business has gone up dramatically in recent years and this trend is not likely to change. In order to survive, we (I say “we” because I consider U. S. Sugar to be part of my life) had to become more ef cient at what we did in order to survive. U. S. Sugar took the chance and invested in improvements to the infrastructure in the new mill and improvements to the re ning and agriculture operations. Fortunately we were lucky enough that we had a property appraiser at the time in Kristina Kulpa who understood that the uctuating price of sugar was a huge factor in U.S. Sugar’s mill facilities and incorporated that into the assessment process. Hendry County, along with every other county in Florida, is offering tax incentive packages and all sorts economic assistance to try to entice new businesses to locate here. Why should U. S. Sugar not participate in this process? You have a company who wants to be here and was willing to invest its money in the county, when so many others are investing elsewhere. Why not afford them the same incentives that are being offered to others just in the hope that they may come here? So from where I sit, nothing good will come out of imposing higher taxes on U. S. Sugar and other businesses. Short term gains will be costly in the long term and will come at the expense of jobs, salaries and bene ts. And in the long run, we all will suffer.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 14 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 18, 2012 Great Innovations: Is There Still Something Missing?BY REV. SAM S. THOMAS, PH.D.+ Saints Martins ChurchSomeone pointed out innovations that have come about recently and the changes that have happened. Banks have gone to ATM machines, making small transactions possible without going inside. Of course, major bank activities aren’t conducted at the machine, but they’re great later in the evening when some cash is needed. Eyeglasses with minor corrections and generic prescription are available from many stores now; if people need simple reading glasses, no need to involve appointments with an optical professional. Drug stores are offering basic clinical services for out-patient interventions that are routine; no need for waiting for an appointment for u shots or a prescription for a rash. Stores have automated check-out counters; waiting in line for the cashier has been eliminated in some cases and people avail themselves of a time-saver that will get them on their way after they’ve scanned their purchases and inserted an amount of cash to cover the transaction. With each innovation comes a recognition that there is a level of care or a service needed that cannot be covered and the bonus is on the drug store to recommend a visit to the family physician or the bank cannot handle a transaction involving foreign currency through the ATM. There are times when an optometrist is needed and eye conditions need a specialist, or a store purchase requires a cashier to handle a refund slip. Overall, people seem to prefer modern short-cut, time-saving ways of doing things. Apparently merchants like them too. There is something about these modern “innovations” that had a familiar ring to them as I thought about it. Some banks had lines inside for customers with only one or two transactions; you would go inside but avoid being in line with someone making several deposits. Years ago, the optometrist that tted our family with glasses knew each member and he observed that sons generally had eyes like their mothers, daughters like their fathers. He seemed to know just what was needed and getting glasses changed every so often was not really a major chore. Some merchants knew who was in a hurry and would devote time to them while another customer was making up their mind about this purchase or that one. The older activities were not quite as ef cient or timesaving but they involved something that more than compensated; human contact. Every once and awhile someone will share with me about some clergy person in their past. He would visit the family on his way home and have a drink, share a joke, bring some news, tell of something that was going on in his life. Oh yes, they’d be there on Sundays, and certainly were among the faithful; even long after he had left their church or they moved elsewhere. Their relationship was obviously very special and very personal. That made, and makes, all of the difference. One grandfather shared with me awhile back about his grandchildren; noting that “Children take time!” Yes they do; and it makes all of the difference in our world of automation, fast-everything, impersonal telephone “labyrinths” that tell you to “press one for…” and you may wind up with a recording anyway. Scriptures are stories of people and their relationships with one another; about what is learned in the exchanges between people, about an incarnate God who gets personal with His creation. Maybe the greatest gift of all of the automated check-out lines comes from the conversations of those who are waiting, the conversations with the clerks who point you to the right aisle, the human who answers the phone and directs you to the answer you sought. That happens in Church, sometimes when the services are over and coffee is shared. Those moments can be healing, ful lling, enriching, incarnational. I think the Lord approves and blesses them! Religion Column SUBMITTED PHOTOIce Cream SocialStudents whose parents attended the recent Grade Level Meetings were treated to an ice cream social on Friday, Oct. 12, in the school cafeteria. It is very important that parents get involved and stay involved with their children’s education while attending Clewiston Middle School. The faculty covets parents input and concern with their child’s academic career and are thankful for each and every parent. Judging from the smiles on the students’ faces, it is evident that a good time was had by all! SUBMITTED PHOTOTour of the Caloosahatchee RiverCongressman Diaz-Balart, Commissioner Tris Chapman and State Representative Matt Hudson discussed environmental issues during a tour of the Caloosahatchee River. 25-yard touchdown and Clewiston’s rst points of the night. The extra point made it 26-7. It was a start, although a late one. Clewiston would add 23 fourth-quarter points, but the 40 to 30 nal in favor of Dunbar was a classic case of too little, too late. “We gave them the district championship again,” a disappointed Head Coach Joe Roth said. “We just handed it over to them.” Coach wasn’t speaking guratively. Offense to offense, in almost every statistical category, Clewiston bested Dunbar. Clewiston ran away from Dunbar, gaining 363 total yards to 234. Clewiston racked up 22 rst downs compared to only nine for Dunbar. The Tigers had more rushing yards than Dunbar, more passing yards than Dunbar, and ran more than double the number of offensive plays that Dunbar did, 85 to 38. But Clewiston led in one other fatal category, too. The Tigers transformed Dunbar into turnover town. Clewiston lost four fumbles and three interceptions that allowed Dunbar to score most of its 40 points easily. Clewiston got off to a slow start again, twice penetrating the red zone in the rst quarter but coming away with no points. Clewiston wouldn’t score until the second half. “We make it a big point to our kids that in a big football game, when we get these opportunities, we’ve got to get some points,” Roth said. Though the scoreboard didn’t appear to show it, Roth emphasized the strengths of his team’s performance last Friday, too. He said the defense played its nest game of the year, holding the vaunted Dunbar offense to 210 yards rushing and 24 passing. His offensive linemen, especially Miguel Perera, Joe Hernandez, and Clem Nealy, controlled the line of scrimmage. Tiger individual efforts abounded as well. Robinson continued to tear through the defense for big yards, this time gaining 168 yards on 35 carries for three touchdowns and a 4.8 yards per carry average. Fullback John Gonzalez rammed ahead for 67 yards on 16 carries and one touchdown. Gonzalez averaged 4.2 yards per carry. He scored a touchdown for the second consecutive game. DeMarcus Terry returned from injury to pick up 41 yards on nine attempts. Senior quarterback Tyler Clemmons, despite an off night, still threw for 91 yards and an average of 11.4 yards per completion. A district championship for Clewiston seems like a bridge too far at this point in the season, but Roth remains upbeat. “We still control our destiny,” he said. “If we win Friday night, we’ll play LaBelle to be the district runner-up.” As district runner-up, Clewiston would advance to regionals and a shot at a rematch with Dunbar. First things are rst, though, and that means the right frame of mind and a 7 p.m. date at Lake Placid tomorrow. Lake Placid got hammered by Dunbar, 49-0, earlier in the season but revived itself last week by destroying Avon Park. “The challenge is: Are we going to be ready to play mentally?” Roth asked. “When you outplay someone and lose the game, you’ve got to get that out of your system. We’ve got to get our rst road win Friday night.” FOOTBALLContinued  1 PHOTO / AMY MCKOWNClewiston Tiger Virthavious Robinson is shown during a Tiger drive in the third quarter.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 23 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 18, 2012 SUBMITTED PHOTOCongressman tours Southern Gardens Citrus Processing PlantSouthern Gardens Vice President and Chairman of Hendry County Commission Tris Chapman provided information to Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart during a tour of the Southern Gardens Citrus Processing Plant on Monday, Oct. 8. The Clewiston News has been reporting history since it was rst published in 1928. Some stories mark events that residents will always remember, projects that never came to fruition, smaller ideas that became incredible ones, and followed the lives of its residents from birth to death. Each week we will be reprinting an article from our historical archives. Stories are reprinted as they appeared originally, and without edit.Friday, October 8, 1943Captain Coburn Moore, soaking up Florida sunshine on a three weeks’ visit here with his mother, Mrs. J. W. Moore, has returned from the Western Aleutians where he spent ten months in “the worst weather in the world.” During the ten months there he participated as pilot in 47 heavy bomber raids against the Japs with such skill and courage that he has been awarded the Air Medal and the Distinguished Flying Cross. Couburn went to the Aleutians in early December, 1942, as a pilot with the rank of lieutenant. There he was a member of the gallant group of iers whose skilled bombings drove the Japs out of Attu and Kiska. Coburn also piloted one of the heavy bombers which made a surprise raid on Paramushiro Island, a heavily forti ed Japanese base in the Northern Kuriles. “There,” said Coburn, “we caught the Japs in exactly the same position they caught is at Pearl Harbor, -completely by surprise. It was a pretty good feeling, too.” Coburn described one bombing mission during which he was scared nearly to death, he says. “The Navy located a ship and we were sent out to sink it. It was deck level bombing, and as we came in to the target a bullet from a machine gun went between Major Speer and me. It missed me by about a foot and it missed him by about a foot, and we were both scared.” Most of the squadron were replaced recently and the men seat back to the States for a month’s furlough. Just prior to their departure ceremonies were held and several men of te squadron were decorated. At this ceremony Coburn received the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal. The citation for the DFC read “The Commanding General of the 11th Air Force, awards a Distinguished Flying Cross to Captain Thomas Coburn Moore for extraordinary achievement in aerial ight. During the indicated period, Captain Moore, as pilot of a heavy bomber, participated in many missions against the Japanese in the Western Aleutians and Norther Kuriles. These missions necessitated long over-water ights in land based planes and were carried out in spite of the heavy anti-aircraft re and enemy ghter opposition. The airmanship and courage displayed by Captain Moore is in keeping with the nest combat traditions of the Army Air Forces.” The citation for the Air medal was read at the same ceremony, although the Air Medals are a new award and none are as yet ready for actual presentations. This citation was for “meritorious achievement in aerial ight,” and for “participation in several missions against the Japanese in the Western Aleutian area.” Captain Moore, telling of the occasion, said “When the ceremony was over, the general called the squadron around him informally, and as we all stood or sat in a circle around him, he paid high tribute to the members of our ground crew, and they richly deserved every word of the praise he heaped upon them. The kept our planes in top condition, and upon them depended out lives and the success of our missions. “We talked about the often, and wished the people back in the States, where strikes were going on in factories turning out things needed on the battle fronts, could have seen them work and could know the conditions under which they did a large part of their work. “When we came in from a mission with our planes, they were waiting for us. As soon as we landed they took over, and never once did they stop until that plane and every piece of its equipment were in perfect condition again. They worked out of doors in the atrocious Aleutian weather, without gloves--for gloves would hamper their work--until their work was done. There was no hesitation, no griping, no waiting till tomorrow, and no stopping because they had done a day’s work. Their work was done when the plane was done--regardless of the number of hours it took. And then we’d get aclipping from home, and read about some strike for a few more ents, or a few less hours, or a few more privileges. Anyone who had watched our ground crews work would know there is no justi cation for any strike in any essential production in this war.” The miserable Aleutian weather is generally accepted to be the worst in the world. Coburn said the men spent most of their time sitting around waiting on the weather,--not for the good ying weather, but just for weather where ying would be possible. There were very few days during the entire ten months when the sun shone. The temperature did rise some, and when the men left early last week the thermometer was around 50. There were bases on several of the islands and Coburn said he happened to be on the wrong island every time one of the entertainers from the States were up there. However, others of the men did see and enjoy Bob Hope, Marjorie Reynolds, Edgar Bergen and others who made the trip into the Aleutians to bring cheer and entertainment to them. Clewiston News Archives: Pilot Tells of Experiences in Aleutian Combat Zone sped toward the direction the vehicle left. He wasn’t going to let them get away with this, he thought to himself, and chased the vehicle until he was able to spot the license plate numbers. At one point, the robbers started shooting toward Medina’s vehicle. Medina said he heard at least three gunshots ring out, with one of the bullets penetrating the area just below the driver’s side headlight. Days later, Medina thought about how the bullet, had it been inches higher, would have struck him square in the torso. He reported the incident to the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce, which has not made any arrests in the case yet. Asked if he had ever seen the men before, Medina answered that he believed he has, at the Shamrock Gas Station where he works. Most people know him as an easygoing person there, he said, though they might be similarly aware of the large gold necklaces and bracelets he likes to wear. The men might have seen the jewelry and staked out a robbery to his home. He believes there were three men – the two who entered his house, and a getaway driver. When it was all said and done, the robbers made away with most of the jewelry that belonged to Medina’s wife. It’s gold, he said, but it carried a sentimental value too. However, Medina is grateful to be alive. Chasing after the robbers may not have been the smartest move – Santiago has moments when he wonders if it really was the right thing to have done – but it was the only thing he knew to do after his home was invaded. “I’m not a violent person but it’s been twice that I’ve had a gun pointed at me and it’s always made me more angry than scared,” he said. His son last week didn’t seem to be affected by the event – he playfully pushes against Santiago sometimes now, trying to replicate the tackle he saw the men doing to his father that day. Holding his son last Friday, Medina, who had been strangely indifferent as he told the story, saw his eyes well up. He grabbed his son closer. “They can take my gold, but they can’t take my precious gold,” he said.
