“One suspect ed and could be in hiding,” says policeBY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsThe Clewiston Police Department said they have identi ed and issued arrest warrants for two suspects involved in a shooting that left two people injured in Clewiston last month. The shooting, which happened around 5:40 p.m. on May 23, took place at the intersection of Aztec Ave and Deane Duff Ave in Clewiston. According to a report released by police, the shooting occurred after an altercation between two parties turned physical, ending in gun re that injured two people. According to witnesses, a group of ve men were loading a Jeep onto a trailer when two vehicles pulled up, blocking the group of men from leaving the location. Four men reportedly exited the vehicles and approached the group, looking for a ght due to a previous incident, according to the report. While the brawl started as just a st ght, it took a critical turn when one of the men who had been helping to load the Jeep took a gun from his pocket and shot the victims. Police are now searching for Encarnacion Gonzales Jr., 25, of Clewiston, for his alleged role in that shooting.

Get a Kit Visit the American Red Cross Store and buy the Deluxe Emergency Preparedness Kit. Discuss Kit Rules Once you get the kit, make sure that everyone knows where it is and that the items are to be used for emergencies only. You don’t want someone taking the water packet from the kit just because they don’t want to make the trip to the kitchen. Personalize Your Kit Have each family member pick their favorite canned foods and personal items and add them to the kit. Make an Evacuation Plan This is much easier and less time consuming than it seems. Pull out a map and highlighter and determine two or three destinations and the routes to get there. Be Informed It is important to know what natural disasters can affect your area and what to do in the event of one striking. Read through the appropriate Disaster and Emergency guides. Watch the weather and stay on top of the news if a hurricane or other severe weather is predicted to come your way. If local authorities are telling you to evacuate, then EVACUATE! If you followed the drills above, then you already have an evacuation plan. How The Red Cross Can Help After a Disaster After a disaster, communities and families turn to the Red Cross for help — and we stand ready to provide comfort and care, free of charge. The Red Cross helps disaster victims by providing safe shelter, hot meals, essential relief supplies, emotional support, and health services like rst aid. Trained Red Cross workers often meet one-on-one with families to develop individual plans and identify available resources to help aid recovery. Red Cross disaster relief focuses on relieving immediate disaster-caused needs so that families can get back on their feet and resume their lives as quickly as possible. The Red Cross also supports emergency workers, links family members outside the disaster area, and provides blood and blood products to disaster victims. Searching for Family Members During an emergency, letting your family know that you are safe can bring loved ones peace of mind. If you have a loved one in a disaster-affected area and are unable to contact them directly, please visit our Safe and Well service to see if your family member has registered. If no information is available, contact your local Red Cross chapter to request assistance. Red Cross Offers Family Preparedness Tips

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades Audubon The White-winged Dove is native to the southwestern United States, Mexico, West Indies, and Central America. Its range is expanding northward and some can be found occasionally in Alaska, Ontario, Maine, and Newfoundland. High densities of this dove species are found in Texas, Florida, Arizona, and Louisiana. Most of the Florida population is from birds that were purposely released in order to establish a breeding population; however a few natural vagrants have also occurred. Some of these doves migrate into Florida from the west during October and November. This plump dove is brown overall, with a dark line on the cheek and blue skin around its orange-red eyes. It has a thin bill and small head. The white strip at the edge of its folded wing becomes a bright ash of white in the middle of a dark wing when it is in ight. The tip of its short, square tail is white, which sets off the black strips from the gray underside. The oldest documented White-winged Dove lived to be 21 years and nine months old. Their most common call is a long drawn out cooing "who-cooks-for-you". Many other variations are heard, especially during the breeding season. The White-winged Dove lives in dense forests and streamside woodlands, as well as urban and suburban areas. It often forms large roosts in inland Florida. It can be seen eating at bird feeders or foraging on the ground. Its diet consists mainly of grains, seeds and fruit. This species will consume small stones to help pulverize plant material in their gizzards and they may eat snails and bone fragments as a source of calcium. These doves can suck or swallow water without moving their heads. A pair of White-winged Doves will stay together for at least one breeding season. The male will choose his territory and the general nesting site, while his mate selects the speci c nest site. The nest site is usually in the shade on the crotch or branch of a tree. The male gathers twigs and brings them to the female, who constructs the nest in a couple of days. The imsy bowl shaped nest may also contain weeds, grasses, or Spanish moss. Sometimes the nest is lined with pine needles, leaves, bark, or feathers. The female lays two white eggs, which are incubated for about two weeks. Incubating females will remain motionless while incubating eggs, but their bright white wing strip is often visible. The White-winged Dove uses a secretion from its esophagus, known as crop milk, to feed nestlings. The young birds edge when they are about 15 days old. The White-winged dove will feign a broken wing in order to draw predators away from the nest. A second brood is commonly raised by the breeding pair. During last week's bird surveys, White-winged Doves were reported with young or on nests at several locations in inland Florida.

Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 2.2 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.43/g on Sunday, according to GasBuddy's daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 1.5 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.64/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 3.0 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 2.2 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 13.1 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 3.1 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. "While the national average has given up some ground to start the driving season, motorists have certainly seen a lot of ups and downs in different areas of the country," said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. "One thing remains the same throughout the United States, and that is we're still reliant on oil re neries to process crude oil into gasoline. When they go partially of ine, whether expected or unexpected, there's going to be tightness in gasoline supply, and that has an almost immediately impact at the gas pump," DeHaan said.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Even though nearly two-thirds of families with small children plan on swimming in areas without lifeguards this summer, many people don’t know the right thing to do in water emergencies or how to keep their loved ones safe in the water, according to a new American Red Cross poll. “People tend to spend more time in and around the water during the summer, so now is a great time to review water safety precautions so you know what to do to stay safe,” said Regional Executive Rob Levine. The survey ndings show that people mistakenly believe some steps, such as having a swimming buddy or otation device, will keep them safe. For example, while the Red Cross recommends that people always swim with a buddy in designated swimming areas supervised by lifeguards, buddies alone are not enough to keep swimmers safe. Two thirds (67 percent) of those asked mistakenly believe that putting in atable arm bands, or “water wings,” on children is enough to keep them safe when an adult is not nearby. These are not lifesaving devices. Children and weak/inexperienced swimmers should wear U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets, while remaining under constant adult supervision. The Red Cross poll found 63 percent of families with children plan on swimming in an area without a lifeguard this summer. However, nearly half of those polled had never taken swimming lessons, with African-Americans (32 percent) less likely to have received formal training. Nearly half of Americans say they have had an experience where they were afraid they would drown, according to the ndings. Hispanics reported a higher percentage (66 percent) of having such an experience over Whites (46 percent). Overall, four in 10 (41 percent) say they know someone who was in danger of drowning, which is an increase of 16 percentage points from a similar 2009 Red Cross survey. Another concerning nding in the 2013 Red Cross survey was that most of those polled were unsure of the right steps to take when someone appears to be in distress in the water: More than nine in 10 (93 percent) people were unable to identify the correct order of actions to take to help a swimmer who may be in danger of drowning. “The correct steps to take when you see a swimmer who needs help is to shout for help, reach or throw the person a rescue or otation device and tell them to grab it; then call 9-1-1 if needed,” Levine said. “People think that if a person isn’t calling out for help that they must not need help. However, they are likely using all their energy to just try to stay above water.” “People think they should enter the water to save someone, but often this endangers the life of the rescuer,” he added. Other signs of a swimmer in trouble include treading water and waving an arm; doggie paddling with no forward progress; hanging onto a safety line; oating on their back and waving their arms; arms extended side or front, pressing down for support, but making no forward progress; positioned vertically in the water, but not kicking legs; underwater for more than 30 seconds; and oating at surface, face-down, for more than 30 seconds. Red Cross swimming lessons help people develop skills and water safety behaviors that help them be more comfortable and safe when they are in, on and around the water. The Red Cross encourages all household members to enroll in age-appropriate water orientation and Learn-toSwim programs. To nd classes for your family, contact your local aquatic facility and ask for American Red Cross swimming programs. An infographic highlighting survey results has been developed. People can nd additional water safety information at redcross.org/watersafetytips. Survey details: Telephone survey of 1,011 U.S. Adults 18 years and older on April 11-14, 2013, conducted in ORC International’s CARAVAN survey using a landline-cell, dual-frame sampling design. Margin of error is +/3.1 percentage points at the 95 percent con dence level. For comparison, this report includes ndings from a 2009 Water Safety Poll--Telephone survey of 1,002 U.S. Adults 18 years and older on March 20-23, 2009, conducted by ORC International’s CARAVAN. Margin of error is +/3.1 percent at the 95 percent con dence level. Survey Finds People Unclear About Water SafetyMost families plan to swim in areas without lifeguards this summer, but lack basic water safety knowledge “People think that if a person isn’t calling out for help that they must not need help.

Norman would grow the most beautiful owers and vegetables until his eyesight no longer allowed him to do that. He never missed a sporting event for Bear or Keeley and would talk about them to all who would listen. He was a proud granddaddy. When being told he had cancer in 2010, he replied "I will not take any treatments I have lived a good life and I have seen my children and grandchildren grow up and that is all I need". Any project or fundraiser his daughter was active in he was just as active and y'all know Marie had many. Many may not know this but he wrote poetry and gifted a book of his poems to his daughter in 1991. Norman maintained his sense of humor until the day he left us. The family will return to Lake Okeechobee to spread his ashes on the lake he loved in August. Daddy gave us the greatest gift that anyone could give another person, he believed in us and that was all we needed.

LOWEST PRICE EVERYDAY! Obituaries 6 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Winter is nally over. Trees and owers are blossoming, birds are building nests and critters are being born. This is also the time of year when the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) begins getting calls about "abandoned" animals that folks believe may be in need of rescue. The fact is that rescuing these seemingly abandoned youngsters interferes with the very processes that ensure their survival in the wild. After giving birth, adult wildlife must forage to provide food for themselves and their young. This means leaving their newborns for short periods of time. Having some basic knowledge of wildlife and the survival skills animals use can help avoid attempting to rescue animals that don't need rescuing. Common targets of misplaced rescues are baby deer, temporarily left in a safe place while their mother feeds nearby. Many people who nd fawns mistakenly assume they have been abandoned when, in reality, their parents are in the process of ensuring the infants' survival. "In most cases, it is absolutely not in a fawn's best interest to rescue it," said Angeline Scotten, Wildlife Assistance Biologist with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC). Scotten says what typically happens is someone discovers a young deer waiting for its mother. Often, these fawns are found in palmetto patches or in recently burned areas, where a doe has placed her new offspring for protection. These settings tend to help mask the fawn's scent, thus providing good protection from the keen nose of a predator. People become concerned when the parent is nowhere in sight and mistakenly believe the young animal will perish unless they save it or take it to a wildlife rehabilitation center. Unfortunately, actions of this kind usually have the opposite effect of a rescue. "Stress created by changing the animal's diet and surroundings is often fatal. If the rescued fawn manages to survive, its return to the wild is practically impossible because of human imprinting and a lack of survival skills, which it would have learned from its mother, had it remained in the wild," Scotten said. Feeding wild animals to help them survive is another misconceived notion that can have dire consequences for wildlife. Although this may sound odd, feeding causes problems ranging from poor nutrition, dependence on humans for food, and nuisance behaviors that can threaten people, property and pets. "Wildlife has survived for thousands of years without human interference and, frankly, it certainly seems to work out better for the animals that way," Scotten said. The FWC recommends that if you nd a fawn or other baby animal, don't touch it or disturb it and quietly leave the area. Juvenile birds are also commonly found on the ground at this time of year, looking a bit dazed or confused. The youngster may be trying to hide in tall grass or in low bushes to avoid being seen by predators. These young birds are going through a process called edging learning to y and fend for themselves. "While edging, the birds' parents will continue to care for it by feeding it and helping it to learn needed survival skills. The best advice is to not interfere in this crucial learning process and to keep pets that may harm the young birds con ned," Scotten said. According to biologists, the only time a baby songbird should be rescued is when it is on the ground and has almost no feathers, when the bird is injured by pets, or its tail is less than a half-inch long and it cannot hop around on its own. "If you nd a baby songbird you are sure needs rescuing and the nest is low enough for you to safely return it, it's OK to do that. Songbirds have almost no sense of smell, so young birds can be returned to their nest without a chance of rejection," Scotten said. You can also place the baby bird in a lined, uncovered, shallow box with drainage, and attach the box to the tree from which the bird fell. Sometimes the parents will come to the baby in the new box and feed it there. When you are sure a bird needs rescuing and care, place the baby in a tissue-lined box that has air holes in the top. Keep the box in a warm spot away from drafts and air conditioning and out of direct sunlight. Do not give it food or water. Call a licensed wildlife rehabilitator in your area. Please remember that migratory birds are protected and need to be cared for by a licensed facility. The FWC's Southwest Region Of ce, 863648-3200, has a list of licensed rehabilitators. Many local veterinarians work closely with wildlife rehabilitators and also can be a good source for help. The FWC asks you to remember that removing an animal from the wild to save it may actually have the opposite effect. Seek advice from wildlife professionals before attempting to rescue any animal. "Remember that in most cases, it's better to leave wildlife in the wild," Scotten said. Wildlife ‘Rescues’ Can Do More Harm than Good COURTESY PHOTO

With Father’s Day on the horizon, I’d like to offer you some parenting possibilities. Let me share with you from the start, I make no claim in being an expert on parenting, but over the years I have had a front row seat in observing many parenting situations. First off, it seems like you parents have a lot of things working against you. Schedules are working against you by consuming time you would like to spend with family. Stress is working against you by absorbing emotional energy you should be expending on your children. The values (or lack of values) in our world is working against you. The media and music your kids are exposed to works against Christian values. Raising kids is without doubt an uphill battle. Parents take heart! Even in the midst of this uphill battle, there is a way to raise positive kids in a negative world. One of the biblical secrets for steering children in the direction they should go involves bestowing the parental blessing upon each child. What is the parental blessing? The parental blessing doesn’t mean bestowing possessions on children. Some parents have the distorted idea that giving material things is the best way to express love, affection, discipline, or attention. This has pushed some parents to work day and night, night and day, to buy their children “nice things.” We all have the desire to provide our children with nice things, things we may not have been able to enjoy when we were children. Let me share with you that nothing you buy your children can replace giving them both your time and attention. In the long run, your children won’t remember all the toys and trinkets you gave them; but they will remember the time and attention and specially shared moments you gave them. As I understand it, the parental blessing your children need and desire includes three elements. First, the parental blessing involves bestowing upon your child a sense of value. It includes providing a sense of acceptance, which means helping your children know they are meaningful and valuable to you. For sons or daughters in biblical times, receiving their father’s blessing was a momentous event. It gave those children a tremendous sense of being highly valued by their parents and even pictured a special future for them. At a speci c point in their lives, they would hear words of encouragement, love, and acceptance from their parents. Second, the parental blessing involves an element of affection. Children desire and thrive on love and affection from their parents. I like the bumper stickers that ask, “Have you hugged your child today?” Third, the parental blessing always involves the element of af rmation. Children need positive feedback and constant encouragement. They need to be given positive words when they perform successfully. They need positive, encouraging motivation when they experience failure. Too many young people only hear the negatives and never hear mom or dad say things like, “You did a good job”, “I am proud of you”, or “Keep up the good work”. The fact is that bestowing the full blessing of acceptance, affection, and af rmation will not happen by accident or attrition for most of us. Life is so hectic that for many parents the “just right” time to communicate a spoken blessing never comes around. Don’t be the parent who wakes up one day and realizes your little children are grown up and you missed the opportunity to bestow your blessing upon them. If you want to raise positive children in a negative world, make a decision now to do what is necessary to bless your children. Bestow your blessing now, and constantly renew and af rm it with them! Religion Column Know What To Do In Case of Emergency It is important to make sure that the entire family is prepared and informed in the event of a disaster or emergency. You may not always be together when these events take place and should have plans for making sure you are able to contact and nd one another. The American Red Cross suggests some basic steps to make sure you remain safe: Meet with your family or household members. Discuss how to prepare and respond to emergencies that are most likely to happen where you live, learn, work and play. Identify responsibilities for each member of your household and plan to work together as a team. If a family member is in the military, plan how you would respond if they were deployed. Plan what to do in case you are separated during an emergency Choose two places to meet: Right outside your home in case of a sudden emergency, such as a re, or outside your neighborhood in case you cannot return home or are asked to evacuate. Choose an out-of-area emergency contact person. It may be easier to text or call long distance if local phone lines are overloaded or out of service. Everyone should have emergency contact information in writing or saved in their cell phones. Plan what to do if you have to evacuate Decide where you would go and what route you would take to get there. You may choose to go to a hotel/motel, stay with friends or relatives in a safe location, or go to an evacuation shelter if necessary. Practice evacuating your home twice a year. Drive your planned evacuation route and plot alternate routes on your map in case roads are impassable. Plan ahead for your pets Keep a phone list of pet-friendly hotels/ motels and animal shelters that are along your evacuation routes. Let Your Family Know You’re Safe If your community has experienced a disaster, register on the American Red Cross Safe and Well website to let your family and friends know you are safe. You may also call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) and select the prompt for “Disaster” to register yourself and your family. Make an Emergency Plan

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Hurricanes are strong storms that cause lifeand property-threatening hazards such as ooding, stormsurge, high winds and tornadoes. Preparation is the best protection against the dangers of a hurricane. Know the difference between Hurricane Watch and Hurricane Warning. Hurricane Watch Hurricane conditions are a threat within 48 hours. Review your hurricane plans, keep informed and be ready to act if a warning is issued. Hurricane Warning Hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours. Complete your storm preparations and leave the area if directed to do so by authorities. What should I do? Listen to an NOAA Weather Radio for critical information from the National Weather Service (NWS). Check your disaster supplies and replace or restock as needed. Bring in anything that can be picked up by the wind (bicycles, lawn furniture). Close windows, doors and hurricane shutters. If you do not have hurricane shutters, close and board up all windows and doors with plywood. Turn the refrigerator and freezer to the coldest setting and keep them closed as much as possible so that food will last longer if the power goes out. Turn off propane tanks and unplug small appliances. Fill your car's gas tank. Talk with members of your household and create an evacuation plan. Planning and practicing your evacuation plan minimizes confusion and fear during the event. Learn about your community's hurricane response plan. Plan routes to local shelters, register family members with special medical needs as required and make plans for your pets to be cared for. Evacuate if advised by authorities. Be careful to avoid ooded roads and washed out bridges. Because standard homeowners insurance doesn't cover ooding, it's important to have protection from the oods associated with hurricanes, tropical storms, heavy rains and other conditions that impact the U.S. For more information on ood insurance, please visit the National Flood Insurance Program website at www.FloodSmart.gov. What supplies do I need? Water (at least a 3-day supply, one gallon per person per day), food (at least a 3-day supply of non-perishable, easy-to-prepare food), a ashlight, battery-powered or hand-crank radio (NOAA Weather Radio, if possible), extra batteries, rst aid kit and medications (7-day supply), other medical items (hearing aids with extra batteries, glasses, contact lenses, syringes, cane), a multi-purpose tool, sanitation and personal hygiene items, copies of personal documents (medication list and pertinent medical information, proof of address, deed/lease to home, passports, birth certi cates, insurance policies), a cell phone with its charger, family and emergency contact information, extra cash, an emergency blanket, map(s) of the area, baby supplies (bottles, formula, baby food, diapers), pet supplies (collar, leash, ID, food, carrier, food dish), tools and supplies for securing your home, extra set of car keys and house keys, extra clothing, hat and sturdy shoes, rain gear, insect repellent and sunscreen, and a camera for photos of damage. What do I do after a hurricane? Continue listening to an NOAA Weather Radio or the local news for the latest updates. Stay alert for extended rainfall and subsequent ooding, even after the hurricane or tropical storm has ended. If you evacuated, return home only when of cials say it is safe. Drive only if necessary and avoid ooded roads and washed-out bridges. Keep away from loose or dangling power lines and report them immediately to the power company. Stay out of any building that has water around it. Inspect your home for damage. Take pictures of damage, both of the building and its contents, for insurance purposes. Use ashlights in the dark. Do NOT use candles. Avoid drinking or preparing food with tap water until you are sure it's not contaminated. Check refrigerated food for spoilage. If in doubt, throw it out. Wear protective clothing and be cautious when cleaning up to avoid injury. Watch animals closely and keep them under your direct control. Use the telephone only for emergency calls. Let Your Family Know You're Safe If your community has experienced a hurricane, or any disaster, register on the American Red Cross Safe and Well website available through RedCross.org/SafeandWell to let your family and friends know about your welfare. If you don't have Internet access, call 1-866-GETINFO to register yourself and your family. Hurricane Safety Checklist COURTESY PHOTO

Butch Wilson, curator of the museum, continued the history lesson with a unique bus tour around Clewiston and Moore Haven showing the students local historic sites. Former CES Principal George Duckstein starts in JulyBY MELISSA BELTZ mbeltz@newszap.comAs students across Hendry County wind down after the long school year, Clewiston High School (CHS) is preparing for the arrival of a new principal in July. George Duckstein, former principal of Central Elementary School (CES) in Clewiston, will be welcomed as CHS’s new principal for the upcoming 2013/2014 school year. Duckstein currently works in the assessment and accountability department at Hendry County Schools. He is not, however, unfamiliar with the hands-on aspect of education. Duckstein taught Physical Eduction at Eastside Elementary School in Clewiston for seven and a half years. He also coached wrestling, volleyball, softball and baseball. Duckstein was principal at CES for two years, before working at Hendry County Schools. It was his time at CES that helped him snag his new job as principal of CHS. Superintendent Paul Puletti expressed his enthusiasm about Duckstein’s new position. “Duckstein has shown he can bring schools forward, as he did at Central Elementary,” said Superintendent Puletti. As Duckstein assumes the role of principal at CHS, current Principal Janice Lee will be staying close-by, having accepted an administrative position at Hendry County Schools. “I looked at where people had the strongest talents,” explained Superintendent Puletti, who orchestrated the switch between Duckstein and Lee. “I decided to move Lee to Hendry County Schools and Duckstein to principal of Clewiston High School.” Duckstein’s of cial start date is July 1, however, he has already been very active in the operations and planning for CHS, according to Superintendent Puletti. Duckstein also looks forward to his new position, saying he hopes to continue the “tradition of excellence at CHS, as started by Miss Janice Lee and previous principals.” CHS, however, has seen poor student performance over the past several years, based on the results of the Florida Comprehensive Achievement Test, or FCAT. Duckstein plans on reversing that pattern by continuing the programs started by Principal Lee and by hiring highly-quali ed teachers who are willing to “give everything they have to the school and the community,” according to Duckstein. The results of the FCAT are an integral part of the system the state uses to rate its schools. Similar to the scale teachers use to grade student performance, Florida schools receive a letter grade, A, B, C, D, or F, based on the results of the FCAT. For high schools, however, other factors are considered when giving out grades, including graduation rate and college readiness, according to the Florida Department of Education. Since 2001, CHS has teetered between a C and an F, receiving an F -the lowest grade possible -in 2002 and 2009, based on data provided by the Florida Department of Education. In 2012, CHS was a D school. The results of the 2012/2013 school year will be released in December. Duckstein expressed his hope that CHS’s grade will improve this year. “Hopefully, the grade will increase this year, but we will have to see,” said Duckstein. “My expectations are still going to be excellence for the students, with a focus on career and college readiness.” Only time will tell whether CHS can pull itself out of its poor performance rut. Superintendent Puletti thinks its possible. “We’re hoping to improve student achievement rates at Clewiston High School,” said Superintendent Puletti. “Duckstein and I working together on plans to accomplish that.” CHS Welcomes New Principal

18 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 On Saturday, June 1, the nine and 10 Year Old Clewiston All Star Baseball Team battled heat, rain and a marathon day of baseball, nishing in second place in the Clewiston "Battle of the Glades" baseball and softball tournament. The boys began the day at 9 a.m. with their rst game against Belle Glade, winning 6-2 in a fourinning, time-limited game. After a brief respite, the Clewiston Home Team took the eld against the team from Immokalee and after a very long rst inning, the mid-morning heat began to take its toll on the home town team. Down 8-0 after two innings, with more games left to play in the day, the Clewiston coaches conceded defeat and gave their boys some much needed rest before the next game scheduled for 1:30 p.m. In their third game of the day, the cooled off Clewiston Boys again faced the Belle Glade team and took an early 5-0 lead in the rst inning, batting 11 of the 13 players on the roster. Clewiston kept up the pressure and played excellent defense, resulting in a 10-0 victory, sending the Belle Glade team back east for the day. As skies darkened to the southeast, the All Stars prepared physically and mentally for their fourth game of the day against the Immokalee team, knowing if they won this game, it would result in yet another for the Championship. The game began with a light rain which quickly turned into a steady drizzle. Lightning to the south and harder rains caused a lengthy delay, followed by the heroic grounds keeping efforts of Lance and Brock Ramer and Andre Taylor, who readied the eld for continued play. The Clewiston boys could not solve the hardthrowing Immokalee pitchers for the second time in this long day, and fatigue was a major factor, but our boys never let up, loading the bases in the nal inning. Some solid defense put an end to the threat, and Immokalee eliminated the Clewiston team 6-2. Our town should be very proud of the effort and sportsmanship shown by this ne group of young men. In the nal tally, the boys played four games over nearly ten hours for a combined total of fourteen complete innings with an aggregate score of Clewiston 18, Opponents 16. The names of the members of the Clewiston All Star Baseball Team are as follows: Juan "Junior" Galvan, Connor Swindle, Caleb White, Ryan Potter, Adrian "Pup" Mendoza, Aiden Price, Zaylen Bennett, Juan Moran, Lane Groff, Parker Watson, Damian Miranda, Sam McDuf e, and Jose "Sparky" Carbajal. The coaches are Bill Murphy, Ed Watson, Mike Swindle and Mark Chamberlain. The Equipment and Practice Squad includes Morris James and Tru Murphy. The umpires were Mike Hall and Brock Ramer. Clewiston 9 and 10 Year Old All Stars SUBMITTED PHOTOPictured is the 9-10 year old boys baseball team. BY PATTY BRANT e Clewiston NewsThe May 28 county commission meeting was new County Administrator Charles Chapman's rst, and the board approved an amended employment agreement with him. The agreement is terminable by either party at any time with or without cause. His salary is $121,000 annually. plus bene ts and is furnished an automobile for county duties. According to the agreement, if the contract is terminated for any reason other than misconduct, Mr. Chapman will receive two months pay plus all accumulated annual leave. The county will pay his health insurance for two months covered by the severance pay. Should he be let go for misconduct (as de ned by Florida Statute), he will receive no severance except those normally afforded under those conditions. In addition, Mr. Chapman must provide 30 days notice should he decided to terminate the contract. He is to undergo an evaluation after six months on the job and at various times afterward. He must also be a resident of Hendry County. Shone Phillips requested the county to vacate two proposed road rights-of-way, including parts of Maple Street and Washington Ave. in LaBelle Estates Subdivision. If granted, the county would retain an access and drainage easement. The board voted 4-0 (Commissioner Janet Taylor was not in attendance) to vacate. Other ownership questions will be for residents of the area to decide on their own. The commissioners voted to extend the negotiation period with Airglades International Airport (AIA) until the end of July. The latest agreement provides that AIA will manage the entire airport, with the county administering existing agreements and grants, and maintaining existing improvements. A formula calculating the number of indirect jobs created by the airport is included. Clewiston Mayor Phillip Roland spoke of the continued revamping of the East County Rec Department. Only one addition to the new board is required before plans can go forward. The hope is that recreation taxes in the district can be equalized for all. Due to ongoing issues and legal deadlines for advertisements, the project cannot be completed until late 2014. County Engineer Shawn Parker laid out the county's priority list for FDOT's Capital Improvement Program. The top priority is the PD&E for US 27 from the Palm Beach County line to CR 720; followed by the SR 29 right-of-way from Spencer to just north of Cowboy Way; and thirdly, construction of that portion of SR 29. The priority for the County Incentive Grant Program is the Helms Road Extension ($4.5 million with no county match). From Intermodal funds, Airglades Industrial Park expansion of wastewater plant and spray eld (requiring a 50/50 match). In the Small County Incentive Program: CR 78 (a farm to market road, evacuation route and major traf c corridor) resurfacing, striping, signage upgrades, drainage and shoulder work; and from Small County Road Assistance: Fort Denaud Road, Francisco Road in Clewiston and WC Owen Ave. in Clewiston. The county is hoping to get Enhancement dollars for various sidewalks, entrance signs and street lighting on SR 80, as well as funding for Helms Road SR 29 intersection improvements. The board approved a request from LaBelle Heritage Museum to extend its lease on Lee Street for the Rider buildings, formerly used as the museum, to be moved. With the acquisition of the old Poole house on Bridge Street and its opening as the main museum building, the organization is attempting to move the Poole buildings onto its new property. The board granted the museum another six months to make it happen. New Administrator Settling In

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 19 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 Take action during National Hurricane Preparedness WeekBY HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES SECRETARY KATHLEEN SEBELIUSThe devastation wrought by the recent powerful tornadoes in the Oklahoma City area is a tragic reminder of the importance of being prepared for severe weather of all kinds. National Hurricane Preparedness Week, May 25 June 1, is a time to emphasize that preparing for these massive storms is vital to every family’s health and well-being. By preparing now, you can protect yourself and your loved ones from the damaging impacts of a storm. Last fall, many along the East Coast felt the impact of Hurricane Sandy, one of the largest hurricanes in history. The storm affected millions of people, and for some, the devastation will be felt for a lifetime. This season, I urge you to make a plan to stay safe and protect your health as storms develop so you are ready when minutes count. Steps you can take to keep you and your family safe include: Discuss with your family what you will do if you need to evacuate. Where will you meet? What will you take with you? How will you check in so that you’ll know who is okay and who isn’t? If you have a pet, make a plan for your pet if you have to evacuate. Get backups for things you need every day: Do you have backup clean drinking water? Do you have a backup supply of medication and a copy of your current prescription? If you use electricity to run medical equipment (like a nebulizer, oxygen concentrator, or ventilator) or to keep your medication refrigerated, do you know where to go if the power goes out? Do you know where you can go to recharge your batteries? Do you know who you will call if you need help getting there? Do you have a backup copy of your medical record? You can ask your doctor to print a copy for you. You can also save an electronic copy in the cloud or on an external hard drive or enter the information into a smart phone or tablet application. Make sure you know how to use a backup generator safely. Remember to keep it outdoors and away from windows to prevent carbon monoxide poisoning. Talk to your friends and family about your emergency plans. Establish family and friends as your lifelines and talk about how you can help each other and communicate during and after a hurricane. If you know a storm is coming, follow the instructions of your local emergency of cials. If they suggest evacuating, get out of harm’s way. Make sure to fully charge your cell phone or other mobile devices so you can communicate after a storm. Plan to text, email, or use social media to let everyone know you’re okay so phone lines remain open for rst responders. These steps can save your life and keep your loved ones safe. Always be Prepared What important information will help you and your loved ones to stay safe even in the worst situationLearn the types of disasters or emergencies that may likely occur in your area. These events can range from those affecting only you and your family, like a home re or medical emergency, to those affecting your entire community, like an earthquake or ood. Identify how local authorities will notify you during a disaster and how you will get information, whether through local radio, TV or NOAA Weather Radio stations or channels. Know the difference between different weather alerts, such as watches and warnings, and what actions to take in each case. Know what actions to take to protect yourself during disasters that may occur in areas where you travel or have moved recently. For example, if you travel to a place where earthquakes are common and you are not familiar with them, make sure you know what to do to protect yourself should one occur. When a major disaster occurs, your community can change in an instant. Loved ones may be hurt and emergency response is likely to be delayed. In these situations it is important to be self suf cient. Make sure that at least one member of your household is trained in rst aid and CPR, and knows how to use an automated external de brillator (AED). This training is useful in many emergency situations. Share what you have learned with your family, household and neighbors, and encourage them to be informed. Make emergency contact cards for all household members. Cards should include the contact information for each household member, such as work, school and cell phone numbers. Fold the card so it ts into your pocket, wallet or purse and carry the card with you so it is available in the event of a disaster or other emergency. Informed People are Safer During Disasters?

singing the Clewiston Alma Mater, which led into a rendition of Bill Withers’ “Lean on Me.” The song had the entire stadium clapping along -if not out of sync. The Salutatory Address followed the inspirational number. Salutatorian Casey Crawford addressed his class with humor and sincerity, joking that he had seen his clasmates more than his family, but he was happy to call them family. Referencing his late brother, Crawford gave his classmates sound advice and asked them to “choose a path that brings you happiness.” Crawford ended his speech saying next year’s seniors have “big shoes to ll.” Valedictorian Jessie Wiggins spoke next quoting rap artist Drake. “We started from the bottom now we here,” said Wiggins, in reference to her class’ climb from Freshmen to Seniors. Wiggins, too, told 2014 seniors they have big shoes to ll. Both Wiggins and Crawford received their diplomas rst, presented by CHS Principal Janice Lee. The rest of the Class of 2013 followed in alphabetical order. The audience, there to support family and friends, did not hold back their excitement as names were called and diplomas were distributed. Balloons littered the bleachers and blow horns echoed throughout the stadium, as excited parents, siblings, and friends sounded their congratulations. The anticipation emanating from the Class of 2013 erupted into cheers as Superintendent Paul Puletti stepped forward to pronounce the graduates. Dozens of blue and gold caps dotted the black sky as the grads celebrated their passage into adulthood. Fireworks added to the celebration, and the audience, who waited patiently in their seats during the ceremony, poured out onto the eld to greet the grads with hugs and owers. Luckily, the weather behaved throughout the ceremony, and only after the crowd began to diffuse, could small raindrops be felt. Congratulations to the class of 2013! Good luck in all your future endeavors; never stop learning, never stop dreaming. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 CFA022585 CAC1817236 Echols Now Offers A/C & Refrigeration $80.00A/C Service Call Free Estimates Service price match guarantee We will match every competitor’s price SINCE 1975 20 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee June 6, 2013 GraduationContinued From Page 1 PHOTO/ MELISSA BELTSValedictorian Jessie Wiggins receives her diploma from CHS Principal Janice Lee and Assistant Principal Sanchez.

BY GIGI MEZZIO Clewiston Middle SchoolClewiston Middle School is nearing the end of the 2012-13 academic year with celebration. Ms Tamera Thomas, math teacher, was happy to announce that due to “overwhelming support of the Math-A-Thon” they were able to raise a substantial $800.61. On May 10, AVID students, accompanied by sponsor and instructor Ms. Kathy Irey, enjoyed a most interesting and informative eld trip to Spaceland Skydive of Clewiston (formerly Air Adventures). They were able to board the plane and participate in a simulated take off. Owner, Rick Hornsby, graciously shared how his business operates, while encouraging students to “stay on their road of success.” Students were both eager and apprehensive about future prospects of endeavoring to actually skydive. Ms. Irey enthusiastically recounted her own adventure and related that, although she had tried it once, she had no intentions of becoming zealous with the sport. On May 29, the AVID students hit the road to Fort Myers in pursuit of chocolate...the kind not found in Clewiston! They found this most delicious treat at the Norman Love confectionary. Interestingly, they were able to meet with the top chocolatier in the country, Norman Love. Mr. Love gave the students a “behind the scenes look” into his world where he “marries his love of art with food.” With Norman Love, its his genius of concocting more chocolates and beautifully delicious desserts than one could ever hope to indulge in. Students were amazed by the elaborate statues that looked like tree trunks, owers, and leaves, only to discover that the magni cent sculptures were made out of creamy chocolate. He told students that “if you strive to win, you indirectly will do your best, regardless of the outcome.” He is surely living proof of that. Wrapping up the week, SWAT (Students Working Against Tobacco) celebrated World No Tobacco Day on Friday, May 31. They wore hair pieces during lunch and in the hallways to promote this worldwide holiday, and asked questions of peers and faculty concerning the negative consequences of tobacco use. Prizes were given and, hopefully, “food for thought” concerning this destructive health problem was given too.
