T, O UF P N J S P L A F W-D P V. N SEE BEAR  10 BY SAVANNAH ROUNDS e Clewiston NewsEarly Monday morning, at approximately 6:40 a.m., shots rang out in Twin Lakes as residents were getting ready for work and children were walking to their bus stop. The Carrizalez family was doing the mundane things that most people do in the morning: making breakfast, showering, and watching television, when they heard gunshots and glass breaking inside of their home. “I handed my ve month old baby to my mother and ran outside to see what was going on,” said Mariana Carrizalez, who lives in the home on Ridge Drive. “We saw a car speeding away, but we couldn’t identify the color or who was driving it because there are no street lights in Twin Lakes and it was pitch black.” The Carrizalez family contacted the Sheriff’s Department immediately, calling in at 6:41 a.m. They claim that deputies did not arrive on the scene until 7 a.m. It wasn’t their only complaint. “We weren’t given a card with the case number and the of cer didn’t take any pictures or even try to locate the bullets,” said Carrizalez. “My father was so upset about how the of cers handled the investigation.” More concerning, however, was the fact that the shooting took place Morning Shooting Endangers Children Bear sightings are up, reports FWCBY SAVANNAH ROUNDS e Clewiston NewsAt around midnight on a regular Sunday, most people have their eyes closed and are trying to catch some sleep for work the next day. That was the case this past Sunday, save for one particularly furry resident, who was spotted perusing the town without any clothes on. We’ll call him Barry. “There was a bear in Clewiston last night,” said Police Chief Gutshall. The bear was rst spotted on East Del Rio, where he began his journey through the town. State Biologists were called to control the bear, but were not able to come out and handle the situation. Instead the Police Department and Wildlife workers cooperated together and set up a perimeter around the bear, making sure that it did not come into contact with any civilians. “The bear actually climbed a tree at one point,” said Chief Gutshall. While it is strange to see a bear roaming Clewiston, it is actually quite common around this time of year.

Growth Marked by Groundbreaking Slams Dragons in District GameBY TIMOTHY SAENZ Special to e Clewiston NewsThe Clewiston Tigers took another giant step forward last Friday in their effort to advance to the Regional playoffs. They hammered Lake Placid, 43-6, and in the process, the Tigers improved to 3-1 in the district and picked up their rst road win of the year. As importantly, this district win delivers a positive mindset to players down on themselves after a bitter 40-30 loss to top district seed Dunbar. “After last week, it was such a tough defeat, it was mentally tough to get back,” Tiger Head Coach Joe Roth said. “We didn’t have the best week of practice. But we talked to the kids before the game and told them we needed one win, we still had something to play for. The kids responded tremendously.” Now Clewiston has positioned itself to capture the runner-up spot in Class 4A-District 6. Only La Belle stands in the way. A Clewiston win over its county arch rival would give the Tigers an automatic playoff berth, a thought not lost on the seniors. “If we keep playing as we’ve been playing, we can be the team we wanted to be,” senior center Miguel Perera said after the game. “We want to go back to Cocoa. We want revenge for last year. That’s why we’re itching to get back. We have playoff experience.” The road to Cocoa, or whichever team lies ahead in the playoffs, runs through LaBelle. The Tigers and Cowboys collide at Cane Field on Nov. 3 at 7:30 p.m. in Clewiston’s homecoming game. The Tigers own a bye this weekend. Clewiston led Lake Placid, 33-6, at halftime. The nal result could have been much worse, but Coach Roth removed senior running backs Virthavious Robinson, Jon Gonzalez, and DeMarcus Terry, inserted freshman Maurice Murphy and sophomore Tyrone Washington, and called no passes in the fourth quarter. The Tigers rolled up 492 yards of offense, 361 on the ground and 131 through the air. Robinson again paved the way, charging for 226 yards – most of it in the rst half – on just 17 carries and two touchdowns. Quarterback Tyler Clemmons marshaled the offense with awless ef Tigers Continue March to Redemption SEE FOOTBALL  22 SEE SHOOTING  22

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Fulvous Whistling-Duck is one of the most widespread species of waterfowl in the world with separate populations occurring in Asia, Africa, Madagascar, South America, and North America. This subtropical bird was rst reported breeding in Florida about 30 years ago. They are known locally as "Fulvous Tree Ducks" or "Large Whistling Teal." These mediumsized ducks have long legs and necks with a distinct pro le that appears more goose-like than duck-like. Adult males and females have a buff to tawnycinnamon head, chest and belly. The wings and back are darker brown. There is a silvery border of white tipped feathers between the belly and wings. They have a large blue-gray bill, gray legs, and a white rump patch that is visible when they are in ight. Juveniles have similar plumage, but are paler than adults. Their "kit-tee" call is a noisy high-pitched, two-syllable whistle which is often heard before these ducks are seen. These gregarious birds are often found in shallow freshwater wetland marshes, lakes and ooded agricultural elds as well as pastures and grasslands with standing water. They are mainly nocturnal feeders whose diet consists of seeds of water plants, rice, and aquatic invertebrates. Fulvous Whistling-Ducks breed in Florida and raise one brood annually from March through August. Their nest is a simple bowl of dense oating or ooded emergent vegetation. Surrounding plants are often pulled around the nest to conceal it from predators. Females lay an average of 13 white to buffy white eggs. These eggs are frequently laid in other Fulvous Whistling-Duck's nests or the nests of other duck species. Both parents incubate the eggs for 24 to 26 days with the young edging at 55 to 63 days of age.

With water levels currently above average in key areas, the region will likely not see the drought conditions or the water supply challenges of previous years. South Florida is forecast to experience one of the few dry seasons with near-average rainfall in the past 14 years, of cials announced today at a joint brie ng by the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) and the National Weather Service (NWS). "Water managers like to see water levels at their highest safe levels going into the dry season to protect water supplies," said Susan Sylvester, SFWMD Chief of the Water Control Operations Bureau. "While we still have the potential for signi cant rainfall this wet season, an average dry season should prevent the water supply concerns of the past several years." Only two South Florida dry seasons, 1998-1999 and 2003-2004, have actually been about average in the past 14 years, with two above average and 10 below average dry seasons. Released this week, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's Climate Prediction Center forecast calls for equal chances of slightly above or slightly below average rainfall for the rst three months of the upcoming dry season. But both NWS and SFWMD climatologists and meteorologists caution that the uncertainty associated with a weather pattern known as El Ni–o means this dry season forecast has a lower con dence than previous years. Among the of cial forecast highlights for the 2012-13 South Florida dry season: Near normal precipitation is mostly likely during the rst part of the dry season, from November to February A drier-than-normal trend may characterize March and April Average dry season precipitation: 12 to 15 inches in the interior/west to 15 to 21 inches in the east Long-term average winter temperature: 64 to 66 F in the interior/west to 67 to 69 F in the eastWet Season UpdateThe new dry season forecast follows a 2012 wet season that has seen above average rainfall in nearly the entire 16-county District, from Orlando to the Florida Keys. District-wide, an average of 41.73 inches of rain, or 6.65 inches above the average, fell between May 8 and Thursday, Oct. 18. Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties, along with the Kissimmee region, experienced the largest rainfall totals, including the historic deluge from Tropical Storm Isaac. In Palm Beach County alone, nearly 15 inches of rain fell in a 72-hour period. In its ood control operations, the District moved an estimated 105 billion gallons of water away from residents in several counties. The historic rainfall pushed Lake Okeechobee to 15.9 feet NGVD on Friday, 0.84 inches above its historic average for this time of year. Highlights of South Florida’s Weather Roller CoasterNormal: Florida receives an average of 52 inches of rainfall a year, with 70 percent falling during the ve-month wet season from approximately June through October. Record Wet Conditions: Tropical Storm Isaac in late August 2012 proved to be a 1-in-100 year storm event. Record Dry Conditions: January 2012 was the driest January in the agency's 16-county region since recordkeeping began in 1932. Record Dry Conditions: The 2010-2011 dry season saw one of its latest starts in 20 years. October 2010 was the driest October on record in South Florida since 1932. The drought continued, with the driest October-to-mid-June period on record. Record Wet Conditions: In 2009, the sea breeze cycle ushered in the wet season in May. With 9.04 inches of rain falling across the District, May 2009 became the wettest May on record, according to District records dating back to 1932.

Hickpochee Ave LaBelle, FL 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 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. Keep Your Home Safe from Allergens this Season This week, the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition announced the addition of three new members: United Parcel Service (UPS), the United States Sugar Corporation and Clean Energy--all leaders in their respective industries. UPS is the world’s largest package delivery company, in terms of revenue and volume, and a global leader in supply chain solutions. United States Sugar Corporation is a technologically-advanced agricultural and food manufacturing company which produces sugar and citrus products for a variety of national and global brands. U.S. Sugar powers its sugar mill and re nery operations with clean, green, renewable biomass from sugarcane. Clean Energy is the largest provider of natural gas fuel for transportation in North America and a global leader in the expanding natural gas vehicle market. It has operations in CNG and LNG vehicle fueling, construction and operation of CNG and LNG fueling stations, biomethane production, vehicle conversion and compressor technology. Clean Energy recently opened its rst two CNG stations in Florida at the Tampa and Orlando airports that are open to the public. Eric Criss, President of the Beer Industry of Florida and Chairman of the Florida Natural Gas Vehicle Coalition, enthusiastically embraced the new coalition members: “We are extremely pleased to have these iconic companies join our efforts to improve the environment and promote natural gas vehicles. UPS, U.S. Sugar, and Clean Energy are on the cutting edge of environmentally-friendly business practices and we are indeed grateful for their participation.” In August, the coalition released a Florida-focused Economic Impact Study showing that Natural Gas Vehicle (NGV) incentives could create over 10,000 jobs, $300 million in new wages and $1 billion dollars in economic output in that state over two decades. Study results can be accessed in the “Public Policy” section of the coalition’s website: www.fuelforjobs.com. A complete list of coalition members is available on the website in the “About Us” section. Based on the study, FNGVC is working with policy makers and the Florida Natural Gas Association to create an incentive program that will help employers transition their eets to natural gas, an economical, domestically produced, and environmentally friendly fuel.

Florida is home to many types of soil and some of them lack carbon, meaning they could be used for carbon sequestration – but a new University of Florida study shows that variability in the state’s existing soil carbon levels could make the task harder. Carbon sequestration is the practice of storing carbon; one way to accomplish it is by adding carbon-rich material to soils. Carbon sequestration aims to slow the build-up of carbon-based gases in the atmosphere, a phenomenon believed to be a cause of global climate change. Some landowners may be able to make money by allowing their properties to be used as sites for carbon sequestration. In a presentation today at the joint meeting of the American Society of Agronomy, Crop Science Society of America and Soil Science Society of America, researchers with UF’s Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences reported early ndings from a statewide study analyzing soil carbon content across areas the size of a football eld. The results con rm what researchers have suspected – that soil carbon content can vary widely on a small site, said Sabine Grunwald, a professor in UF’s soil and water science department. That means efforts to amend soil with carbon-rich biomass will need to be tailored to local carbon levels. The results also con rm that soil carbon variability has a lot to do with how the land is used and what material covers the land, factors known as land use and land cover. “Land use is highly correlated with soil carbon values,” Grunwald said. “So if you know the land use for a particular area, you can predict the amount of soil carbon there.” The ndings will help Grunwald and her colleagues develop new digital soil maps that offer greater resolution than past efforts, she said. The maps are needed for precision agriculture, the practice of growing crops using computer-assisted technology that compensates for variable growing conditions. Soil carbon content plays a major role in soil quality, fertility, crop yield and food production. High-quality digital maps can also assist conservation efforts by giving an accurate assessment of subsurface conditions in an area, she said. In the study, doctoral student Xiong Xiong took soil samples from ve areas, each representing one of ve types of land use and land cover commonly found in Florida. They are: pineland, dry prairie, improved pasture, mesic (moderately wet) mixed forest and xeric (dry) upland forest. Together, the ve account for about 40 percent of Florida’s surface area. Three of the sites were located near Gainesville, one in the Panhandle and one in South Florida. At each, Xiong took 108 soil samples, starting with several at a home base. Then Xiong sampled at distances of about 2 yards, 8 yards, 25 yards and 75 yards from the home base. The results showed that, in general, dry prairie and mesic mixed forest had the greatest capacity to store carbon, followed by improved pasture, while pineland and xeric upland forest had the least. The statewide soil carbon assessment is one part of a three-year study funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Grunwald said. She and Xiong are already well into a nationwide assessment, made in conjunction with the National Soil Survey Center in Lincoln, Neb., and researchers in Sydney, Australia. More than 6,500 sites have been sampled. “We should have some data next year,” Grunwald said. “The United States urgently needs new soil carbon assessments.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Kristina Kulpa 16 Years as Hendry Property Appraiser Experienced, Professional, Fair Knows the Job, Knows the People, Knows the Stakes When it comes to setting your property taxes ƒ Experience MattersTHE CHOICE IS CLEAR!HENDRY COUNTY DESERVES A CANDIDATE WITH EDUCATION AND INTEGRITYELECT KEVIN DRUMMONDFORSUPERVISOR OF ELECTIONS I would also like to thank the Harris Family for their endorsement.Early Voting starts on October 27!www.Electdrummond.com Anything I can do, please call me, Im always available. 863-234-3480. 7 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 25, 2012 Florida Soil a Patchwork Quilt for Carbon Content PHOTO / UF

OverviewThe overall forecast thinking as far as track and intensity of Sandy hasn’t changed much since yesterday. Models are generally in agreement in a northward track across the central or western Bahamas Thursday and Friday at highend tropical storm intensity. A concern for South Florida is the expansion of the wind eld to the north and west of the center during this time. This has a direct impact on local winds and seas and is a classic example of why following the cone can be so misleading.Potential ImpactsWind: Elevated impacts east coast metro areas beginning late Thursday and continuing through Friday Night. Winds increasing on Thursday to NE 20-30 mph during the afternoon with some gusts to 40 mph or higher possible. Winds increasing to N 25-35 mph with possible gusts 45-50 mph most of the day on Friday, beginning to subside Friday night but remain rather high until Saturday. If system is larger and/or closer than forecast, even higher winds are possible. These winds would likely lead to downed trees and power lines with many power outages, as well as dangerous conditions for high-pro le vehicles and on bridges and overpasses. Interior and SW Florida: lower winds than indicated above but still gusty winds to as high as 35 mph possible late Thursday and during day on Friday. Surf/Beach Erosion: Potential for signi cant beach erosion and at least minor coastal ooding east coast beaches Thursday night and Friday. Rain: Heaviest rainfall will probably stay just offshore, however enough rain bands could brush the east coast and lead to 1-2 inches Thursday through Saturday. If heavier rain bands expand farther west then amounts could be at least twice of what I’m indicating. Right now ooding potential is on the low side but will have to monitor very closely. Interior and west coast areas should have little if any rain impacts. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 COME WATCH ALLNFL & COLLEGE FOOTBALL GAMESSPECIALS $2 Domestic Draft $4 Crown Royal 50¢ WingsNew: 65 Different Frozen Drinks!LaBelles #1 Restaurant863-342-8216 870 W.

Meals tend to be more time-consuming and complex to prepare than standard fare. But by planning ahead, you can make all those delicious meals and treats in record time without undue stress.Stock Up EarlyDon’t leave your grocery shopping for the last minute. The stores will be overrun with other eleventh hour shoppers. The rst thing you should do is to plan your menu in advance. Then take inventory of your fridge and pantry, and compose a detailed shopping list accordingly. When you’re crunching on time, the last thing you’ll want to do is run to the store because you forgot that crucial ingredient. Beef Up Your KitchenBe sure your kitchen is well-stocked with the right tools to ensure proper execution of all those tasty holiday treats. Be sure your knives are sharpened and ready for the onslaught of meal prep. An extra set or two of measuring spoons and mixing bowls is also a great idea when you’re making so many dishes at once. You probably already have a food processor or traditional blender, but adding a hand-held immersion blender to your kitchen tool box will aid you in quick preparation of pureed soups, sauces and homemade whipped cream. The wrong gear can ruin a great recipe. Many holiday recipes call for zesting to add avor and garnish to cookies, cakes, pies and drinks. If you’re trying to zest with a peeler or poorquality zester, you may be adding the bitter pith of citrus fruits to an otherwise delicious treat. Opt for a zester with v-shaped teeth that skim across the surface of citrus. For example, the Edgeware Better Zester has non-stick coating, ensuring smooth zesting and easy clean up. It also features a container with measurements, and a non-slip end piece for stability, so you can easily and comfortably follow your recipes accurately. More information on proper zesting can be found at www.edgewareproducts.com.Cook and Bake AheadNot every kitchen task needs to happen on the day of your festivities. Lighten your load by prepping what you can beforehand. Bake cookies, brownies and breads in advance and store in the freezer with wax paper or an airtight container. Just be sure to let them cool to room temperature before storing. A sauce’s avor improves with time, so prep your sauces a day in advance. Dice vegetables for side dishes ahead of time and store in plastic baggies in the fridge. Make a salad the day before and dress just before serving. Don’t let the joys of holiday entertaining be a cause for sorrow. Streamline your meal preparation with a little planning. Tips to Make Holiday Cooking Easier

United States Sugar Corporation now tries to spin its efforts to keep its tax break by having its hired-gun Tampa attorney write a paid political ad explaining just why it is good for the taxpayers of Hendry County that US Sugar be entitled to contract … forever … as to the manner in which its multi-million dollar facilities are assessed. Its attorney does not cite one authoritative appraisal text supporting the contract. Their lawyer is not an appraiser, as I am, he is simply spinning sugar as fast as he can. When is the last time you saw a taxpayers attorney spin his clients views into a local Property Appraisers race? This is an example of US Sugars desperation to keep its taxes low and raise yours. US Sugars tactics remind me of the adage that if you are in a lawsuit you “rst argue the law and if the law is against you, argue the facts, and if you cant argue the facts, argue with the jury. In this election, you, the taxpayers of Hendry County, are the jury. Many of you have called to tell me to continue my efforts to see that US Sugar pays its fair share of taxes and not to cave in to its bullying. I really appreciate your support and intend to do just that. My opponent has been strangely silent as to how she would appraise US Sugars property if she should win the election. Her silence speaks louder than her words. Dont forget to vote on November 6, your property taxes are at risk if US Sugar wins the Property Appraisers election.

Forecasters with NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center say a wavering El Nio, expected to have developed by now, makes this year’s winter outlook less certain than previous years. “This is one of the most challenging outlooks we’ve produced in recent years because El Nio decided not to show up as expected,” said Mike Halpert, deputy director of NOAA’s Climate Prediction Center. “In fact, it stalled out last month, leaving neutral conditions in place in the tropical Paci c.” When El Nio is present, warmer ocean water in the equatorial Paci c shifts the patterns of tropical rainfall that in turn in uence the strength and position of the jetstream and storms over the Paci c Ocean and United States. This climate pattern gives seasonal forecasters con dence in how the U.S. winter will unfold. An El Nio watch remains in effect because there’s still a window for it to emerge. Other climate factors can in uence winter weather across the country. Some of these factors, such as the North Atlantic Oscillation, a prominent climate pattern, are dif cult to predict more than one to two weeks in advance. The NAO adds uncertainty to the winter outlook in the Northeast and MidAtlantic portions of the country. Areas ravaged by extreme drought over the past year are unlikely to see much relief from drought conditions this winter. In the 2012 U.S. Winter Outlook (December through February) odds favor: Warmer-than-average temperatures in much of Texas, northward through the Central and Northern Plains and westward across the Southwest, the Northern Rockies, and eastern Washington, Oregon and California, as well as the northern two-thirds of Alaska. Cooler-than-average temperatures in Hawaii and in most of Florida, excluding the panhandle. Drier-than-average conditions in Hawaii, the Paci c Northwest and Northern California, including Idaho, western Montana, and portions of Wyoming, Utah and most of Nevada. Drier-than-average conditions in the upper Midwest, including Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa and northern Missouri and eastern parts of North and South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, and western Illinois. Wetter-than-average conditions across the Gulf Coast states from the northern half of Florida to eastern Texas. The rest of the country falls into the “equal chance” category, meaning these areas have an equal chance for above-, near-, or below-normal temperatures and/or precipitation. This seasonal outlook does not project where and when snowstorms may hit or provide total seasonal snowfall accumulations. Snow forecasts are dependent upon the strength and track of winter storms, which are generally not predictable more than a week in advance. NOAA’s National Weather Service is the primary source of weather data, forecasts and warnings for the United States and its territories. NOAA’s National Weather Service operates the most advanced weather and ood warning and forecast system in the world, helping to protect lives and property and enhance the national economy. Working with partners, NOAA’s National Weather Service is building a Weather-Ready Nation to support community resilience in the face of increasing vulnerability to extreme weather.

bear related calls to the FWC are up this year in many parts of Florida. Since January in central and south Florida, the FWC has documented the highest number of calls per month for six of the past nine months. Fall is a very active time for bears as they eat about three times as much as usual to put on pounds for the winter, even though Florida winters are fairly mild. “If you are a Florida black bear, raiding a garbage can to eat stale doughnuts and the leftovers from last night’s spaghetti may be more appealing than foraging in the woods for palmetto berries and acorns,” said David Telesco, the FWC’s bear management program coordinator. “Preventing bears’ access to food is the most important thing people can do to keep bears and other wild animals out of neighborhoods.” While this particular bear did not forage through any garbage cans, it is still important to be aware of the dangers that bears can present when in a residential setting. As bears are trying to stock up for the winter, they will generally want to take the easier route when it comes to getting food, which can result in a mess or a confrontation. “Luckily for us he wasn’t doing any harm,” said Chief Gutshall. “Our biggest concern was with keeping him away from civilians.” The bear’s night trek had to end some time, and after a few hours of entertaining local deputies and wildlife workers, he headed Northeast, away from the stale doughnuts in Clewiston residents’ garbage cans and onto bigger and better things. Here are a few tips from the FWC to keep bears away from your home and neighborhood: Feed your pets indoors or bring in dishes after feeding.Secure household garbage in a shed, garage, or a wildlife-resistant container. Put household garbage out on the morning of pickup, not the night before. Secure commercial garbage in bear-resistant dumpsters consisting of metal lids of metal-reinforced plastic lids and lock bars. Clean grills and store them in a locked, secure place. Remove wildlife feeders or make them bearresistant. Protect gardens, apiaries, compost and livestock with electric fencing. Pick ripe fruit from trees and remove fallen fruit from ground. Encourage your homeowners association or local government to institute ordinances on keeping food secure that would attract wildlife.

The King’s Academy prepares college-ready students through writing excellenceThe King’s Academy, a nationally recognized college preparatory school, has begun an initiative focused on enhancing writing skills at their Clewiston Campus. Under the new writing program, each TKA student will have completed a minimum of 60,000 proofed, cited, MLA formatted words before receiving their diploma at graduation. “Colleges and universities around the nation have consistently pointed to the ability to articulate one’s self in written form as the most important skill graduates need at the next level. Effective writing is a requirement for all college classes, not just English, and is a necessary tool for success in all professions,” said Mr. Brian Burrage, principal of The King’s Academy. “It is probably the most important academic tool that we can equip our students with during their time here. College success is our focus in every class, every day.” The writing track will begin in 7th grade with a creative writing course which introduces students to the building blocks of college-level research and writing. Students will progress through the remainder of their six-year tenure, writing 2,000 words in each of their ve core classes each year. Electives have been added to supplement the program including journalism, college essay writing, and an English program designed to improve SAT scores by 200-300 points. TKA is con dent the writing program will help our students excel in their collegiate endeavors.

SUBMITTED PHOTOPumpkin PatchFirst Graders from Eastside Elementary look for just the right pumpkin at the Pumpkin Patch located at First United Methodist Church. Are You AC or BC?BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist ChurchWere you born AC or BC? By "AC" or "BC", I mean "After Cell-phones" or "Before Cellphones". I was born BC. The rst cell phone was invented in 1973 by Martin Cooper, was 9x5x1.75 inches, and weighed 2.5 pounds. Things certainly have changed since then. In a world of a little over 7 billion people, there are now approximately 5.6 billion cell phone subscriptions. This means about 79.86 percent of the world's people have cell phones. That's pretty amazing when you think about it. In the last forty years cell phone technology has changed the way we socialize, do business, and function daily. We have never been so closely connected, and there has never been so much immediately accessible information as there is today. With online access, each cell phone is almost the equivalent of having the Library of Congress in our hands. We can Google or access just about anything. Unfortunately, all of the online access has also led to another epidemic identity theft. With just a few bits of our personal information, anyone's identity can be electronically hijacked. Bank accounts can be drained, credit card debt can be run up, and personal credit can be ruined. Once your identity is stolen, your name is no longer your own. Because of this, one of the fastest growing businesses over the past few years has been the security business, especially companies that promise to keep your identity safe from electronic thieves and watchdog all your personal information. For a price, they promise to keep your identity safe as long as your identity is de ned by what you own and what you owe. Our personal identity, however, is more than a nancial history. Our true identity, who we are in this world, should be beyond the grasp of any bandit. The truth is, however, many of us are losing our identity to thieves. We get so caught up in trying to make a living, making mad dashes to many different activities, meeting deadlines, coping with the stress of meeting other people's demands and our own high expectations, it is very easy to lose sight of "us" and lose our identity to situational thieves. This is especially true for Christians. We are suffering from a loss of identity. Do we know what it means to be a disciple of Jesus? Do we have an identity as Christians? This has not been a good week for Protestants. The Pew report on religion in America was released on Oct. 9, and it revealed that the fastest growing "religious" group in America is made up of people with no religion at all. According to the Pew survey, one in ve Americans is not af liated with any religion. What is your identity? At the very center of your being, who are you? It's a core question, since every corporation and every institution that understands these digital times is reinventing itself around "Who we are" and away from "What we sell" or "What we offer." Who are we? We are Christians, followers of Christ. We are living proof of the difference a relationship with Jesus Christ can make in a life. It's time, church, to put our identity back into our ministry. Religion Column John Hicks

Hato Potrero Groundbreaking is well attendedBY SAVANNAH ROUNDS e Clewiston NewsElected of cials grabbed their shovels, tried to put on their hard hats, and took the rst few shovelfuls of dirt to signify the "groundbreaking" of the new Hato Potrero Juice Plant, which will now begin the process of construction in Clewiston's Commerce Park. "This is the initial step into building a business park," said Denise Hatton, President of the Chamber of Commerce board. "From here we can only grow and prosper." Hato Potrero was initially given the go-ahead on November 17 of last year to begin the long process involved with constructing a new building, and although they hit a few snags along the way, they are happy to be on the right track now. "This is a step in the right direction for the building of a community," said the Mayor of Clewiston, Rick Miller. Hato Potrero will now be managing their new juice plant, along with the business that they already have in town: Yo Gusto, which is a factory that makes and sells cheeses, yogurt, yogurt bars, and milk. "My sons and I love their delicious yogurt," said Hatton, "and if you haven't stopped by Yo Gusto, well, shame on you!" At the groundbreaking samples of their cheese, drinkable yogurt and juice were made available for those who attended. Local of cials and residents alike swarmed around the table that held the samples, enjoying a nice treat. "The whole community is bene tting from this," said Steve McKown. "You often get home runs in baseball, but this is something that isn't so common; an inside the park home run."

at a time when children were most at risk. “A lot of kids out here were heading to the bus stop around that time,” said Carrizalez. “When they heard the gunshots they all started running back to their houses. Somebody could have been injured and we would have never known because w e couldn’t see anything.” Carrizalez said that her main concern was the safety of residents of Twin Lakes. “Just because we live in Twin Lakes does not mean that we don’t deserve street lights and proper service from police of cers,” said Carrizalez. “I feel that if this would have happened somewhere else in town it would have been handled differently.” Though the Carrizalez family is not entirely positive as to who did this, they do recall an incident that happened two days prior to the shooting, where words were exchanged and one of the men involved said “I’ve got something coming for you.” “It may just be a coincidence,” said Carrizalez, “but it really stuck with me. I know that there w ere some kids bragging about being the ones w ho did it, and with this being such a small town w ord got around. But who is to say whether or not they really did it or just wanted the credit for doing it?” In light of the events that took place the Carrizalez family is going to add extra protection to their home and are also starting a petition for the people of Twin Lakes to have street lights installed. “We need to come together as a community and demand this change,” said Carrizalez. While Twin Lakes residents hope to create a change in their community, Carrizalez is just relieved that nobody was harmed in the shooting. “There were three bullet holes in the wall and a few things were damaged in our shed,” said Mariana Carrizalez, “but these are all material things that we are not worried about. We are just happy that everybody came out of this with their lives.” The Sheriff’s Department was working on a response in regards to the events that took place, but could not make the information available on the short notice. ShootingContinued From Page 1 ciency, hitting 6 of 10 passes for 131 yards and throwing the ball with greater authority. DeMarcus Terry looked like he had regained the form that he had before his injury. He rushed eight times for 59 yards and scored three touchdowns. “I felt good, just having to come back and play,” he said. “I gave one hundred percent.” Gonzalez added 17 yards on seven carries and his blocking devastated the Dragons and freed Robinson and Terry to wreak their havoc on the defense. The Tiger defense earned kudos. It held Lake Placid to only 106 yards of total offense, six rst downs, and one rushing touchdown after the Tigers had built a 21-0 lead. More importantly, the defense’s penetration and tackling were rough and tumble. Coach Roth inserted strongman Perara at defensive tackle on various plays as he did last week, and Perara completely clogged the middle. Senior Vinny Llossas, and juniors Brandon Cortez and Raymond Molina, thrashed the Dragon running backs and quarterback Robert Walton, who was leveled at on one play. Though it resulted in a ag, the play served notice that the Tigers were out of the cage. If one area of defensive weakness stood out this game, it was in interceptions. About a half dozen times several Tigers put themselves in position to take away the ball from the Dragons. Instead, they let the pigskin y through their paws, just dropped it, or didn’t time their moves correctly. In a tighter game, those failed takeaways could have made critical differences. It’s an area Coach Roth plans to address. Clewiston scored on its rst possession. The Tigers began on Lake Placid 44 after a short Dragon punt. The six-play drive featured a 19-yard pass from Clemmons to junior tight end Derrick Jackson and a one-yard dive by Gonzalez. Brandon Torres’ extra point was good, and the Tigers led, 7-0, with less than four minutes gone in the game. The Tigers allowed the Dragon offense one rst down on its next possession, then began their second drive on their 32 after a Lake Placid punt. The drive was all of one play. The Tiger O-line opened a gaping hole up the middle. Robinson shot through, veering left. Up the eld, he swiveled when one defender appeared to have a good arm around him. Few players ever get a good arm on Robinson, however, and he dashed up near the left sideline, wheeling to his right to elude a closing defender near the goal line. The extra point was good, and barely more than a minute after its rst score, Clewiston led, 14-0. Clewiston scored its third touchdown with a short duration drive that began at the Tigers’ own 47 with about 10 seconds left in the rst quarter. The Dragons had gone for a rst on fourth and seven, but their pass fell incomplete. All it took to score was a series of three runs by Robinson. He gashed Lake Placid for 17, 14, and 22 yards, the last touchdown. The Dragons used their next possession to blemish an otherwise perfect Clewiston defensive performance. The Dragons returned the kickoff to their 30. The next four plays were an encroachment penalty against Clewiston, a holding penalty against Lake Placid, an incomplete pass, and a personal foul – roughing the passer penalty against Clewiston for decking Walton. That gave the Dragons a rst-and-10 at their 40. A little later in the drive, Walton connected a 39-yard pass that gave the Dragons a rst-and-10 at the Clewiston 16. Three plays later, Eldon McKenzie rammed in for the Dragon score. The extr a point was no good, and Lake Placid trailed, 21-6, with 9:20 left in the second quarter. The Tigers responded with a four-play, 60yard drive after they returned the kickoff. Terr y followed his blockers and swept in from 20 yards out. A bad snap prevented the extra point, and Clewiston led, 27-6. The Tigers added one more score before the half on a 68-yard, nine-play drive. Terry ran out of a full house back eld and scored a two-yard touchdown. Another bad snap eliminated the extra point, and Clewiston would go into its locker up at halftime, 33-6. Clewiston gained 340 yards by halftime. The Tigers added 10 points in the third. Sophomore Brandon Torres nailed a 24-yard eld goal, and Terry scored on a 19-yard run.
