BY SAVANNAH ROUNDS srounds@newszap.comHendry Regional Medical Center (HRMC) is celebrating their 50th year of volunteer service through the HRMC Auxiliary this year. The auxiliary consists of 12 active members, who volunteer over 50 hours a year of their time and donate thousands of dollars each year to help purchase vital equipment for the provision of quality patient care. Dianne Merath, President of the HRMC Auxiliary, explained that the duty of volunteering is not about what others can do for you, but rather what you can do for them. “Our goal is to make a difference in the hospital with our presence,” said Merath. “And you have to be willing to make a difference without expecting anything in return.” Those who volunteer, after going through an application process, are required to work in the HRMC gift shop, which is controlled solely by Auxiliary members, once or twice a week. These volunteers, or “Pink Ladies” and “Red Men” as some may call them, also donate their time doing other business throughout the hospital when needed. And -perhaps most importantly -they do it with a smile. “It feels good to know that you’re giving back to your community,” explained Merath. “That’s payment enough.” Though the Auxiliary, in its’ prime, reached nearly 50 volunteers, Merath HRMC Celebrates 50 Years of Volunteer Service DRIVE A NEW 2013 FOCUS SE FOR ONLY $159 PER MONTH*24 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $2158 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

BY SAVANNAH ROUNDS srounds@newszap.comWhat began as a Friday night out at Brenda’s Place quickly turned into chaos, when an argument resulted in Deputy Ricky Garcia with the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce (HCSO) discharging his taser into a crowded area. Brenda’s was lively that night. Witnesses stated there were more than 30 people pouring out from the bar onto the back patio, where an argument suddenly broke out between Jamar Eugene Boykin and Deangelo Lamar Huston in the early morning hours. Boykin explained that Huston ran into him and he retaliated by shoving Huston out of the way. “I didn’t realize who it was that bumped into me,” said Boykin, who explained that he is friends with Huston and was beginning to walk back over to him when Deputy Garcia, according to Boykin and several other witnesses, came up to Boykin and exclaimed “I will drop you like a badass addiction.” Boykin claims he asked the of cer what he said when he was hit with the taser darts. Though many who witnessed the events may have been under the inuence of alcohol, a source close to The Clewiston News, who was sober during the altercation, con rmed the picture that several witnesses painted. “[Boykin] stepped back and said something like ‘What are you talking about? Who are you?’ And that was when the taser made contact,” explained the sober source. “But the taser wasn’t effective because of [Boykin’s] shirt, so he got up and tried to kick [Deputy Garcia].” The source further explained that the deputy was not distinguishable, as he was wearing a grey shirt and made no effort to explain to Boykin that he was with HCSO. “He shot the taser in a crowd full of people. At that point, he was risking the safety of the public,” stated the source. “If that taser had touched somebody else it would have shocked Of cer Deploys Taser in Crowd T, A W P R P V.

BY MELISSA BELTZ mbeltz@newszap.comOn April 12, 2013, Veerasammy Adinaraih, a 52-year-old man from Guyana, South America, was arrested on charges of attempting to procure a prostitute. The incident took place at the parking lot of the Executive Royal Inn on Sugarland Highway in Clewiston. Adinaraih said he was unaware that the prostitute he intended to procure was actually a detective of the Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce (HCSO). The detective posed as a prostitute as part of a sting operation set up by the HCSO, which was carried out in Clewiston. She acted with six other of cers; two of cers were in charge of the monitoring and safety of the detective while she was undercover, one of cer was in charge of the surveillance and safety of Det. Herrera, and the other three of cers were in charge of the apprehension of any suspects—in this case, Adinaraih. Because this operation was specially created and carried out by HCSO, it begs the question: is there a prostitution problem in Clewiston? “We do this periodically just as a preventative measure, not because we’re having any excess problems in Clewiston,” explained Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden. Sheriff Whidden acknowledged the fact that prostitution takes place in Clewiston. It is with operations like the one conducted by HCSO that help keep the problem at bay.

COMMUNITY NEWS AND INFORMATION BY PATTY BRANT pbrant@newszap.comFolks pay a total of nine cents in county taxes per gallon of gas at Hendry County gas stations including a six cent fuel tax, two cents of a possible ve-cent fuel tax, and a one-cent fuel tax. Eight cents of that total came up for renewal at Tuesday night’s regular commission meeting and the board voted to continue them. An interlocal agreement governs the dispersal of the six cent fuel tax among the county and the Cities of LaBelle and Clewiston. That agreement was approved early (a public hearing on the dispersal is required every two years). The six cent tax itself is in place through December 31, 2020. Both cities indicated they approved the current dispersal agreement: Hendry County 65 percent; Clewiston 20.67 percent; LaBelle 14.33 percent. The board also approved extension of the two-cent tax, which was due to expire at the end of this year.Legal aidFunding for indigent legal aid through Florida Rural Legal Services was continued. That gure is 25 percent of the $65 court cost imposed by county ordinance on those convicted of a crime. That amount is also divided among: court system innovations, public law libraries; teen court and other juvenile programs.Federal lobbyistCommissioners were not impressed with a request from federal lobbyists Jim Davenport, Alcalde and Fay to expand the county’s federal wish list. The board felt they should focus strictly on Hendry County issues, not the expanded list the rm presented. The county’s list includes: SR 80 widening; CR 78 resurfacing; wastewater improvements at Airglades Airport; and the Herbert Hoover Dike Rehabilitation and Caloosahatchee River (C-43) West Basin Storage Reservoir Project. The board preferred to prioritize local issues rather than get side-tracked with more national items.In other business:The commissioners took no action on the West Recreation Board assessment on LaBelle area businesses proposed by the City of LaBelle to fund a golf course. Currently, only residential properties are being assessed for this use. The board extended negotiations with Airglades International Airport (AIA) LLC till the end of May. The reorganization of East Hendry County Recreation Board remains a hot topic. Clewiston Mayor Phillip Roland said he is happy things are starting to roll. An advisory board is meeting to pave the way. Ultimately a ve-member board, patterned after the West Rec system, including two members from the county commission, two from the City of Clewiston and one from the school board, will govern the recreation district. That board will nalize a funding formula that will be presented to the taxpayers. Gas Tax Discussion Renewed

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 25, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonDuring April, many of the wintering songbirds begin their migration back to their northern breeding grounds. The American Redstart will be one of the last migrant warblers to leave central and south Florida. They normally breed across much of North America except for the Paci c Coast, the arid Southwest, and the Great Plains. These common migrants rarely breed in Florida. This small songbird's song is a series of sweet high-pitched notes with an accented ending note. Some variations include "Weesee, wee-see, wee-see" or tsee, tsee, tsee, tsee, tsway". The male American Redstart has a black hood, back, wings, tail and chest; it has orange patches on the side of its chest, in the wings and in tail and its belly is white. Females and young males have a gray head and back and yellow instead of orange patches. American Redstarts prefer living in second growth deciduous woodlands where there is an abundance of shrubs. When foraging for prey, the males often ash their orange and black wings and tail to ush insects. Their diet consists mainly of ying insects, but they will occasionally eat berries and seeds. Their tightly woven, open cup nest is either tted into branches or far in a tree or shrub. It is constructed of small twigs, grasses, bark strips, hair, leaves and mosses which are glued together with spider silk. The female lays one to ve creamy white eggs with dark speckles. The eggs are incubated for about 12 days, with the young edging when they are nine to ten days old. Inland Birding Fun: American Redstart (AMRE) PHOTO/ GREG CORNETTAmerican Redstart (AMRE).

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 8 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee April 25, 2013 BY MELISSA BELTZ mbeltz@newszap.comOn April 19, a woman was observed moving suspiciously through Clewiston’s Walmart, according to a report released by the Clewiston Police Department. Stephanie Rodriguez, an employee of Walmart, observed the woman walking through the store as if someone were watching her. The woman then proceeded to the front check out area, where she separated merchandise into a second shopping cart, placed a child on top of the unpaid merchandise and exited the store. Rodriguez went out after the woman, who told Rodriguez her sister planned on paying for the merchandise; but when the woman was escorted back into the store, her sister explained she was unaware her sister had left and did not pay for the items. Clewiston Police was dispatched to Walmart, where the woman was being held on suspicion of theft. Of cer S. Chamberlain arrived at the scene and identi ed the woman as Lasheka Mitchell, 33, of Clewiston. Walmart employees scanned and took photographs of the items in Mitchell’s shopping cart, which totaled $66.26. Because the merchandise totaled more than $25, Walmart decided to press charges and Mitchell was charged with larceny. Apparently, this was not the woman’s rst run-in with the store. In 2008, Mitchell was issued a trespass warning from Walmart. As Of cer Chamberlain explained to Mitchell that she would be charged both for the theft of the items and for trespassing after warning, Mitchell hunched forward, complaining that her abdomen hurt. She informed police that she was six months pregnant and was taken to Lakeside Medical Center in Belle Glade. Mitchell was not placed under police custody, however, on April 20, she turned herself in to the Clewiston Police Department. Woman Hides Stolen Goods Under Child, Say Police Local student Mary Gibson recently participated in a job shadowing event hosted by Hendry Regional Medical Center. The King’s Academy places 11th graders, like Mary, with host volunteers in career elds where the students show interest. The program is designed to assist students as they prepare to make college admissions decisions. Mary had to wait until her 16th birthday to complete her experience, but found that it was worth the wait. Under the supervision of Development Coordinator, Mrs. Beatrice Acosta, she was able to shadow Dr. Carroll and Dr. Blandford. Mary completed clinical rounds and spent time with the doctors and their patients, strengthening her resolve to study medicine in college.

While these volunteers offer their time for nothing in return, Merath says there is something that everybody can do to make them feel more appreciated. “If you see somebody wearing a pink or red vest in the hospital, just stop them and say ‘thank you, I appreciate you,’” said Merath. “That’s really all it takes!” With this being a celebratory month for volunteer work, it is an important time to celebrate those who do extraordinary things through volunteer service. To show their appreciation, Lynn Beasley, HRMC CEO, among other hospital staff members, threw a small party to thank the Auxiliary members. “Thank you for all of the work that you do,” said Beasley. “It has made a tremendous difference and we appreciate you. We see the difference every day.” Glenda Wilson, HRMC Marketing Director, reiterated what Beasley said as she handed each volunteer a plaque as recognition for their service. “It has been a pleasure to work with all of you, and I know that you don’t get thanked enough for all of the hours that you put in, but we just want you to know how much we appreciate you. I am grateful for everything that you do.” HRMCContinued From Page 1 “It’s a very dangerous ordeal. People think [prostitution] is a victimless crime, but it’s not. People who use prostitutes have families and wives and children, and they may bring home diseases,” stated Sheriff Whidden. “We set up operations [like this] to let [citizens] know, if you’re thinking about [procuring a prostitute] there’s a good chance it could be law enforcement.” Susan Harrelle, Public Information Of cer at HCSO, also explained that this operation was simply a proactive stance against prostitution taken by HCSO. Three other men, Dewayne Wright, Jose Rico, and Guillermo Avil, were also arrested during this operation.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 GRAND OPENING! MARCH 27863-674-1220 220 South Industrial Loop, LaBelle, FL NOW OPEN! 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A pril 25, 2013 Religion ColumnFishing or Wetting a Line?BY PASTOR JOHN HICKS First United Methodist Church This week, I‘m on vacation in the Bahamas, so my focus is on shing. If you think about it, there are basically two kinds of sherman. Some sh to catch sh and are not satis ed unless the ice chest is full at the end of the day. Then there are the recreational shermen, who are more interested in the experience than actually catching sh. These sherman are satis ed with just getting out for the day and “wetting a line”. If they catch a few sh, that’s ne, but if they don’t, they still enjoy the trip. I’m kind of a combination of the two. With yearnings to ll the ice chest, my goal is to catch enough sh to have a church sh fry. However, I also enjoy getting away and breathing in the fresh ocean air. In the Gospel of John, Simon Peter stated, “I’m going shing.” The other disciples declared, “we’re going too!” So the disciples posted their “gone shing” sign on the upper room door and headed out to the lake. Maybe they weren’t holding their mouths right, because we are told this shing trip was a dud — “that night they caught nothing.” It wasn’t that the disciples had not tried to catch sh, they shed all night! It wasn’t that the disciples didn’t have the right equipment, they had the best tackle! It wasn’t even the time of day that was the problem. It takes more than working, more than tackle, and more than time; it takes catching sh. Without sh the disciples were simply “wetting a line”. What may be enjoyable as a recreational pastime is deadly from a spiritual perspective. The church is called to be “ shers of men and women,” yet often we may just be “wetting a line”. We may not be all that concerned if we catch sh or not! One reason many churches aren’t quick to see new people coming into the church is the same reason many of us don’t care if we catch a lot of sh while shing: sh are messy! If we catch a mess of sh, we have a mess of sh to clean. It’s much easier to just wet our lines. It doesn’t take much effort when you sh and don’t catch anything. It does, however, take effort to sh like you really want to ll your ice chest. The question for us is, “Are we content to practice casting our weighted lines in the backyard? Or are we truly after some sh and will we do whatever it takes to catch some?“ Of course it’s easier to just “wet a line” and say we’re shing, so the church today has mastered the art of shing without ever really catching much. Instead of shing for men and women, we tend to focus on busy work and church maintenance. We are called to be shers of men and women, not just keepers of the aquarium. Some statistics show that 70 percent of our churches have plateaued or are declining. This begs the question, “Are we truly shing or just wetting our lines?” In many instances, our shing today consists mainly of shing for children of church members in the safe church pond or transferring sh from one church ice chest to another one down the street. Imagine what would happen if we focused more on shing the pools of the unchurched all around us! The doors of our churches could over ow with great catches that would bless them and us!

them too.” However, the arrest report, which was written by Deputy Garcia told a much different story. According to the report, when Deputy Garcia moved in on the situation he “went to where the disturbance was located and made contact with Boykin and requested that he come with me from off the patio and away from the crowd. Boykin refused my request and backed up to the door. “I requested again and told Boykin he would be tased if he didn’t honor my request. Boykin refused my request and stood off in an aggressive manner. I then drew and deployed the issued Hendry County Sheriff’s Of ce X-26 Taser, making contact in Boykin’s chest.” The report went on to state that “Boykin pulled the taser probes from his chest and ran at me and kicked me, making contact on the left side of my chest and right arm. Boykin was escorted to the ground and placed in hand restraints.” Furthermore, Deputy Garcia explained that the cause for using his taser was due to Boykin being “located at a public place and causing a disturbance that could have injured or endangered the safety of the public.” Kevin Hooker, who was behind Boykin during the time the taser was deployed, explained that he did not feel threatened by Boykin, but rather by the red light emitting from the taser. Hooker explained that after the incident occurred, Deputy Garcia approached Huston and asked him whether or not he wanted to press charges against Boykin, to which Huston stated twice that he did not. From Brenda’s, Boykin was escorted by a different of cer to Hendry Regional Medical Center (HRMC), due to complaints of “back pain,” according to the arrest report. After being taken to HRMC, Hooker explained that Deputy Garcia returned to Brenda’s to speak with Huston yet again. “[Deputy Garcia] called [Huston] over again and said that he needed to press charges,” said Hooker. “He kept going at him and said ‘I helped you, now you need to help me.’” The documented report of the incident then shifts from the perspective of Deputy Garcia and falls into the hands of Deputy Michael Yeomans, who was dispatched to HRMC to assist in maintaining custody of Boykin. In his report he states that upon his arrival, he “made contact with an agitated, angry and verbally abusive Jamar, in leg and arm restraints, standing in the nurse desk area.” From there, Boykin was informed that Deputy Yeomans was with HCSO and was there to maintain custody of him and transport him to the jail. “Jamar immediately focused his vulgar language directly at me,” the report stated. Boykin explained that Deputy Yeomans was at Brenda’s during the taser incident, though that information failed to make it into Deputy Garcia’s report, and that he made him uncomfortable. “I said ‘I don’t want him to come over here,’” explained Boykin. However, in spite of his requests made to ofcers, the deputy “tried to approach Jamar to assist him in getting off the hospital bed, when he kicked me with both feet in the face,” according to the report. The deputy attempted to block the kick, but failed in his efforts and was struck directly in the nose. Boykin is being charged with battery on an of cer, resisting an of cer with violence, and disorderly conduct. Hendry County Sheriff, Steve Whidden, was not available for comment regarding this issue.

The chamber of commerce is a community organization created to help local area businesses grow and improve their nancial strength. The executive director is essential for the Chamber’s success and ability to carry out its mission. With the help of an assistant executive director, the executive director handles the organization’s day-to-day activities, including collecting dues and maintaining nancial accounts, and carries out the decisions made by the board of directors. The board of directors has not yet decided on a candidate to ll the position. Instead, it has decided to formally announce the vacancy in May, when it will begin accepting applications. “Our plan and purpose is to open up advertising [about the position] in May and begin interviewing in June with the hope of a July 1 start date,” explained Denise Hatton, president of the Clewiston Chamber of Commerce. Hatton also explained that until the board nds a replacement for Sparks, assistant executive director Nina Conley is acting as interim executive director. Although the board is not yet accepting applications, candidates have already begun inquiring about the position.

Students were treated to a guided tour of Vizcaya Museum and lunch at the “world famous,” Versailles Cuban Caf. Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a National Historic Landmark owned by Miami-Dade County and accredited by the American Association of Museums. The serene and stunningly beautiful retreat was built by industrialist James Deering, who made his fortune in agricultural advances, including the formation of International Harvester. The museum features a Main House, ten acres of formal gardens, and a rockland hammock (native forest).

The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) approved revisions to its gopher tortoise permitting guidelines April 18 at its meeting near Tallahassee. The guidelines are based on stakeholder input and designed to be consistent with the updated Gopher Tortoise Management Plan approved in September 2012. Updated permitting guidelines provide adequate nancial planning for the long-term management of gopher tortoise recipient sites, stipulations for the capture of tortoises for relocation when using a backhoe, and criteria to de ne when to suspend, revoke or not renew an authorized gopher tortoise agent permit. This action comes during the time of year when gopher tortoises begin their springtime maneuvers through Florida’s open canopy forests and sandy areas. Tortoises are on the move in search of fresh greenery to eat after emerging from winter dormancy in their deep burrows. “Ever since the 2007 approval of the original Gopher Tortoise Management Plan, the FWC has worked closely with stakeholders to improve and revise both the gopher tortoise permitting guidelines and the management plan,” said Deborah Burr, the FWC’s gopher tortoise management plan coordinator. “Conservation of gopher tortoises and their burrows that shelter other species is our longterm goal, so they always will be part of Florida’s landscape.” Gopher tortoises live in all of Florida’s 67 counties, preferring high, dry, sandy places such as longleaf pine forests, oak sandhills, pine atwoods and coastal atlands and dunes. Their burrows can be recognized by the half-moon shape of the entrance, which curves at the top. The gopher tortoise is listed as a state threatened species, and it is against the law to harm gopher tortoises, their burrows or eggs. Generally, it is best to leave a gopher tortoise undisturbed, unless you need to move it off a highway. Then it should be placed immediately on the other side of the road and pointed in the same direction that it was traveling.
