BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsJ. David Bethel’s novel “Evil Town” offers a look into the corrupt and often disturbing practices of political Washington. Though a work of ction, Bethel spent 35 years in politics and brings that knowledge to his novel, delivering a unique and accurate picture of our political system. The powers that be run rampant -from the White House to the high-rise ats housing the nation’s most in uential businessmen -“Evil Town” gives readers a genuine, albeit alarming, ‘This is a Town That is Full of Evil People’Novel brings D.C., Clewiston into limelight BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsOn Monday, July 22, three members of Clewiston’s City Commission tackled what is arguably the most important issue concerning the commission and the citizens of Clewiston: balancing the budget. At their rst budget meeting of scal year 2013, Commissioners Jimmy Pittman, Julio Rodriguez and Rick Miller set their sights on the Clewiston Golf Course’s budget, Trinidad Park and the future Sweetest Town Playground. At their last regular meeting, commissioners spoke about the restroom situation at Trinidad Park, namely, that there are no restrooms. Since the park was completed, portable toilets have been used in lieu of permanent restrooms; these portable toilets cost the city $1,200 per year to rent. A LaBellebased company has shown interest in building permanent restrooms at Trinidad Park and quoted the construction at $12,500 plus costs for new sewer and water lines. Commissioners debated whether or not restrooms at Trinidad Park were essential, and eventually came to the conclusion that paying $1,200 per year for portable restrooms was not worth the money, especially when a local company was giving the city such a good deal on new, permanent restrooms. “We’re throwing $1,200 out there every year on something that we don’t own and it’s just two portables ... They’re not bathrooms, those belong at construction sites. I guess if we decide if we’re going to have bathrooms, we need to budget it sooner or later,” said Commissioner Rodriguez, who attributed keeping the portable restrooms to “throwing good money on SIGN AND DRIVE A NEW 2013 FOCUS SE FOR ONLY $229 PER MONTH*36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit.

Boy, of LaBelle, passed away peacefully July 16, 2013 in Lehigh Acres. He was born Mar. 25, 1917 in Johnson City, Tenn., to David C. and Kathleen Boy and was the second of three brothers. He graduated from Georgia Tech with a degree in mechanical engineering. During his time at Georgia Tech, John was on the Honor Roll, a member of Omicron Delta Kappa and Tau Beta Pi, Phi Eta Sigma, Bulldog Club, Pi Delta Epsilon, A.S.M.E, Skull and Key, Interfraternity Council, Technique Editor in Chief, Yellowjacket, Blue Print, Student Council, ANAK Vice-President and Athletic Association Student Member. Following graduation, he worked for Proctor and Gamble at the Buckeye Oil Company until WWII broke out and at that time enlisted in the U. S. Navy. He served our nation throughout the entire war and became the Captain of three different ships -a subchaser, USS C350, a patrolcraft, USS PC613 and destroyer escort, the USS Holton, DE-703. John and his crew from the USS Holton held annual reunions that were lled with great passion and memories of their younger years. While in the Navy on assignment in Miami, John met and married the love of his life, Nancy Adams, who predeceased him. Shortly after the war, John went to work for United States Sugar Corporation in 1946. Through his engineering ingenuity, he improved the ef ciency and productivity of sugar cane harvesting by converting/redesigning track mounted tractors to rubber tires which was combined with his successful redesign of sugar cane loading machines. Those redesigns allowed the Florida sugar cane industry to begin a process of mass production in the elds and factories which ultimately led to the size and ef ciency of today’s industry. John later became Executive Vice President of the Corporation in 1961 which led to his promotion to President/CEO in 1970, a position he held until his retirement in 1987. He became ViceChairman of the Board of Directors at that time. Under his leadership, the Corporation not only prospered by tripling its production, but he led the way in charitable giving to the surrounding communities of swimming pools, youth centers, an auditorium, day care facilities, housing projects and multiple scholarship programs. Two of his proudest achievements during his tenure as President were the creation of an Employee Stock Ownership Plan whereby the employees would own 47% of the Corporation and the commencement of the diversi cation of the Corporation into the growing/processing of citrus. John was the beloved and respected leader of the sugar industry as noted by the numerous accolades that he accumulated and/or achieved during his career which included “Sugar Man of the Year”, Florida Agriculture Hall of Fame, Honorary Doctor of Humanities-Florida Atlantic University, “White Hat” award by Agribusiness Institute, President of the Florida Sugar Cane League, President of the Florida Sugar Marketing and Terminal Association, State Director of Florida Chamber of Commerce, Council of 100, Florida Land Council, Florida Farm Bureau, 1975 Citizen of the Year for Clewiston, Florida and Dedication of the Sugar Festival in 1992. He is survived by daughter, Betsy Terrill (Jim); sons, John Boy, Jr. (Connie) and H. Lane Boy; grandchildren, Jamie Terrill, Christopher Smith, Jennifer Price, Suzanne Boy, Stephanie Crawford, Rachael Boy; and ten great-grandchildren.

About half the nation’s households include a dog or a cat, and they spend $53 billion yearly on pet expenses, ranging from food to vet bills to toys. Some go a bit overboard. A whopping $370 million is spent on pet costumes yearly. But even more shocking is the toll our animals take on our electronics budget. American pets have bitten, chewed, licked and otherwise damaged over eight million electronic devices, amounting to over $3 billion in repair and replacement costs. Considering that one of every three devices damaged by pets is a smartphone, this could mean up to $800 in replacement costs whenever your animal runs amok. The risk of pet-related accidents increases the more pets are treated as family members. According to new research from SquareTrade, if you drive with your pet in your lap, you’re over twice as likely to damage your device. And letting a pet sleep in bed with you triples your chances. Meanwhile, giving your pet too much independence can also increase risk. Two-thirds of pet-related accidents involving devices happened while the pet was unsupervised. Accidental Personalities: Every furry friend comes with its own unique personality, and unique set of dangers. For example, the SquareTrade study found that 21 percent of accidents happened while the owner was using the device. A temperamental personality can also be a red ag -17 percent of pet owners believe their animal friend damaged their device because it was angry with them. And homes with different pet species are more susceptible to mishaps. Those with both a cat and dog are four times more likely to have accidents with electronics compared to homes with one or the other. Fido Protection: Despite the growing popularity of pet insurance, many owners don’t realize this kind of insurance doesn’t cover damage caused by their pets. In fact, three out of four devices damaged were not covered by any kind of warranty. While there’s no sure way to prevent pet-related accidents, consumers can protect themselves by getting a protection plan. For example, some protection plans cover against accidents, like a device getting batted off the kitchen counter, falling in a water bowl or nding its way into the wrong paws. They also cover mechanical and electrical issues, like antennae and Wi-Fi failure, a broken dock connector, or touch-screen failure. Pets all need exercise, training and attention from their owners, but they sometimes nd inconvenient ways to show us. The Hidden Costs of Owning a Pet The Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) will hold a public meeting Aug. 8 in Gainesville to discuss possible options for minimizing the risk of chronic wasting disease (CWD) coming into Florida. The meeting is at the Paramount Plaza Hotel, 2900 S.W. 13th Street, Ballroom A/B, from 6:30-8:30 p.m. and is open to the public. CWD is not known to affect people but is a contagious neurological disease affecting deer, elk and moose. The disease is always fatal, and there is no known cure or vaccine. So far, the disease has been discovered in 22 states, two Canadian provinces and South Korea. The meeting will begin with a presentation by Commission staff on the signi cance of CWD and will include a discussion on possible solutions for minimizing the risk of the disease being brought into the state.

glimpse into “the way the world works” in our nation’s capitol. What may be of particular interest to readers in Hendry County is the political battle “Evil Town” centers around. Though the names have been changed to protect the innocent, Bethel’s novel delves into the sordid world of “American Sugar,” its ght to stop the restoration of the Florida Everglades and the unscrupulous -though commonplace -practices it uses to ght the battle. Throw in murder, sex-for-hire scandals and a snaking plot, based almost entirely on dialogue, that keeps readers on their toes and you have the workings of a great political murder mystery. “Evil Town” opens with the murder of a beloved Florida congressman’s wife and sets the tone for the rest of the novel. The congressman, Clegg Caffery, is a potential candidate for the impending senatorial race and his nomination is crucial to Norman Bremen’s plan. Norman Bremen, whose family owns American Sugar, uses his in uence for evil to get what he wants from the people around him. Those people include senators, congressman, journalists, law enforcement of cers and the President himself. Painted as an unfeeling, ruthless businessman, Bremen manipulates both people and situations to get what he wants. What does he want most of all? To stop the restoration of the Everglades and save his family’s business -or at least the money it makes. To do so, he enlists the help of one of Washington’s most powerful inuences: a lobbyist. Perhaps one of the most interesting aspects of the book is the way in which national concerns can be contrived. Bethel more than alludes to the way lobbying rms manipulated the argument for Global Warming. In a conversation between Bremen and Ernest Regan, an important character in Bethel’s book and the main man of a Washington lobbying rm, Bremen applauds Regan’s effort in changing the way the nation viewed climate change. “... and your campaign promoting the upside of climate change was brilliant. That business about the ice melt helping advance Greenland’s independence from Denmark was great stuff. And I loved the added bit about the return there of warm weather cod, and the rst-time appearance of locally produced vegetables. Yes, great stuff. ...” Norman Bremen elicits these same skills to reverse the argument for Everglades restoration, in order to save American Sugar’s assets. Bethel’s novel is a sophisticated political murder mystery, whose insights into the masterminds behind the political maneuvering in Washington -and even in small towns like Clewiston -will keep readers hooked until the very, twisted end. Evil Town” was published by Two Dog Publishing, LLC in 2012 and is available on Amazon’s Kindle for just $2.99. The author, J. David Bethel, is a writer of ction and non ction and has published many opinion editorial pieces in the country’s largest newspapers. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 25, 2013 Gail Wiseman: A roofer was working on the roof and found it and reported it to health inspector!!

BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonGreat Crested Flycatchers breed throughout the Central and Eastern United States, as well as Southern Canada. They winter in humid forests from Mexico to Northern South America and from Central Florida to Cuba. In Florida they ar-rive on their breeding grounds in late March or early April and migrate south between mid-August to the middle of October. This medium-sized songbird is a large sturdy built ycatcher with a bright yellow belly. It has a cinnamon-colored tail and wings, pale wingbars and a large, broadbased, dark bill. Immature birds quickly molt into adult-like plumage. When resting they will tilt their head to one side inquisitively. Great Crested Flycatchers are more often heard than seen. They make the same far-carrying "wee-eep" calls on their breeding and wintering grounds. This species also makes a noisy grating call. These birds prefer living in open areas in woodlands, old orchards and urban areas with large shade trees. They are often seen hovering around in the top of the canopy foraging for insects and other invertebrates, or picking small fruit. They catch ying insects, glean insects off of leaves and will drop down from trees to take their prey on the ground. They prefer to y from place to place on the ground instead of walking. Their nests are found in natural cavities, nest boxes or other structures, such as mail boxes or rain gutters. These nest cavities are usually lled with leaf litter, hair, feathers, small twigs and trash, which are piled to the top of the cavity hole. Many of the nests contain snakeskin or crinkly materials, such as cellophane, plastic wrappers or onion skin. Egg laying in Florida usually takes place in April, May or June. The female will lay three to eight creamy white to pinkishbrown streaked eggs, which are incubated for 13 to 17 days. The young are born helpless, but are covered with some down. Both parents care for the young, defend the nest vigorously from predators and will remove the fecal sacs. The nestlings edge when they are 13 to 17 days old, but remain with their parents in the nesting area for about three weeks. Great Crested Flycatchers are being reported nesting near homes, in parks and wooded areas in inland Florida. Listen for their loud calls or nd them watching quietly from exposed perches.

This compares with the national average that has increased 3.2 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.68/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 22.2 cents per gallon higher than the same day one year ago and are 12.1 cents per gallon higher than a month ago. The national average has increased 9.9 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 19.0 cents per gallon higher than this day one year ago. “The national average has seen the upward trend continuing, with average prices climbing across an abundance of the U.S.,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “The price of WTI oil continues to rise to levels not seen in quite some time, and that may continue, at least for the time being, to put more upward pressure on gasoline prices.

BY PATTY BRANT e Clewiston NewsPotential. Loads of it.With just a little over a month in his new position, potential is what struck the new County Administrator Charles Chapman about Hendry County. Economic and commercial development possibilities, along with a population he feels is “hungry” to make positive change happen, are the catalysts that will spur the county’s future success, using the “raw materials” Hendry County has too often overlooked. His vision for the county isn’t clear right now, but it’s beginning to form as he digs in and learns about his new home. So far, he said he sees about 50 percent of Hendry residents -the “internal drivers” -have the will to get it done. And, yes, he sees a meaningful conversation between LaBelle and Clewiston as crucial to a successful future -understanding that it won’t be easy. He sees this process as “hands across the glades and groves” -a focus on the common ground so important to underpin the county’s success. “A win for Clewiston is a win for LaBelle, and a win for LaBelle is a win for Clewiston,” he points out. Hendry County residents need to learn to “celebrate our wins.” “We need to fall in love with who we are and where we are and what we want to become,” he added. Coming to Hendry County from Gadsden County, outside of Tallahassee, Mr. Chapman sees a fair comparison between the two, since both are strong in agribusiness and have an ag based economy. Of course Gadsden’s proximity to the capitol gives it a more diverse character. He sees Hendry on the forefront of a contracting ag economy, but ready to launch into a new future. No surprise, unemployment is the number one problem here, he said, with the need for appropriate job training at its core. He is looking forward to addressing this with “our school board partner.” There is a turnaround coming, he said, and Hendry County needs “smart planning” to be ready when it comes. The other side of that coin is that locals want to preserve the area’s identity rather than be overwhelmed by growth. Hold on to our unique character is also an integral part of Hendry County’s successful future, he noted. That future will be about being who we are, while still moving forward. He said he hopes to draw residents into the process by taking advantage of many opportunities to get involved. He’d love to get the community to commit to a program with at least one project per quarter that would expose unique local artists, craftsmen, farmers and others to a larger audience for their talents and wares. “Get a buzz going” about what Hendry County has to offer, he said. As a whole, the county needs to identify its local legends -its shiny pearls that have been overlooked. “We need to brand ourselves,” he said, to draw others in. The idea is to “reconnect” with ourselves and increase interest from the outside. The privatization of Airglades Airport is, of course, the county’s premier economic development project, poised for growth. Still a few years shy of being implemented, it holds the promise of job opportunities with good salaries for local folks. Airglades is an opportunity for locals to learn to take pride in and celebrate themselves, he noted. Airglades is the keynote project at this time. Selling a county airport to a private entity -to Airglades International Airport (AIA), in this case -has never been done before by county or the FAA. It’s a new and delicate process that both sides are feeling their way through. When complete, AIA will attract contracts with distributors and light manufacturing. Coming into his position, Mr. Chapman said he is learning, making notes. He is committed to presenting his ideas of “strategic intent” to the commissioners by the end of his six-month trial period. He wants to engage the public all over the county in conversations over important issues, including the budget and services. With a diverse population, public input is essential, he said, in order to “truly make the county commission yours.” He intends to do this through “speed dating” style workshops with their district commissioners. In this approach, individuals would spend a few minutes with their commissioner bringing up the issues on their minds. It’s a way to outreach directly to residents who can share their priorities with their commissioner. The traditional “government in a box,” he said, does not work. Collectively, in a civil manner, the community can solve most problems. The key is for a government to be driven by its residents. He also said he hopes to involve residents through an exercise in which individuals can take a stab at balancing the county budget, using the rules that apply to the commission, and coming up with a consensus of their entire group. A civil conversation between county staff and residents over the county’s hot issues, perhaps over a meal, could spark a real beginning of collaboration. Collaboration is a “tall order,” Mr. Chapman knows, but said it needs to happen. People need to know their county government is on their side, he said and county employees need to feel they are full, valued stakeholders. What Hendry County needs, he added, is a proactive board of county commissioners. All this is attainable, Mr. Chapman believes. He said there’s a “hunger in staff already” that just needs to be tweaked to make the county better for all. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Free Checking We Believe In You Completely Free Business Checking This free business checking option is convenient and opens up a world of features to your business no matter the size.

Teachers like Rebecca Kircharr are already preparing for the immense changes that are coming to Florida public schools this year. Kircharr is an English teacher and reading coach at Leon High School, which means she will be working with her colleagues as they retool their reading and writing instruction. As the Leon County teacher of the year, she noted in her submission for the state competition that teachers have been working during the school year and over the summer, looking for ways to push students “further and deeper into complex text, discourse and questioning than ever before.” They are preparing for the Common Core State Standards, which will require students to think deeply and learn differently. In previous years, teachers started learning the standards and incorporating them into their lessons, and this year, they will be taught at every grade level in English and math. “It’s such a big shift and you can’t do it all at once,” Kircharr said. New standards will measure students — as well as teachers and schools — by a new yardstick. In language arts and math, they will replace the Sunshine State Standards at the center of the accountability system that is currently tied to the Florida Comprehensive Assessment Test. They will place fewer speci c requirements on the material teachers must cover each year and are designed to immerse students in the kinds of reading, writing and thinking they will have to perform as adults. Florida Education Commissioner Tony Bennett said the 2013-14 school year will be “the year of Common Core” in Florida public schools, as the new standards make their way into classrooms at every grade level. The transition to Common Core will bring changes to the way teachers do their jobs, how schools and districts are judged and how children learn. At rst, the shift may put pressure on educators, but teachers becoming versed in the standards say they see an opportunity to elevate their craft. The new standards are designed to expose students at an earlier age to the kind of thinking and writing they might use in college. The shift was on display in a video played for Leon County teachers during a week-long training session last month at Nims Middle School. The lesson was designed by the Reading and Writing Project at the Columbia Teachers College and is intended to show one way teachers might help their students meet the new standards. Children on the screen line up in teams, preparing for a debate about Doris, the protagonist in Cynthia Rylant’s story “Stray.” One side must argue Doris is weak. The other must argue she is strong. The students face their debating partners and shake hands. “You’re going to have time to caucus — which means plan with people who share your same position,” their teacher tells them. They comb through the story, highlighting the passages that will help support their arguments. “It’s like you’re going into battle and you have to get ammunition, and your ammunition is reasons from the text and text evidence.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 25, 2013 New Common Core State Standards complex” in Perry, Fla. where he truly learned about life and law enforcement while serving its residents. After reaching the rank of captain at the Taylor County Sheriff’s Of ce, an opportunity was presented to Chief Gutshall and he answered the call. “I had an opportunity to be a police Chief in Georgia, so my family and I took off to Georgia to a small town called Quitman. I spent ve years there and I refer to it as ‘doing time,’” joked Chief Gutshall, adding, “You’ll starve trying to make a living there. Quitman is a nice, friendly little town, but -poverty stricken. It was dif cult there.” Chief Gutshall was grateful for those years in Quitman, however, because it was there he learned the art of being chief and he was able to “brighten his badge” before returning to Florida. “They were really patient with me,” said Chief Gutshall. Chief Gutshall saw there was a vacancy at the Clewiston Police Department and quickly took advantage of the opportunity. In 2002, Chief Gutshall made his way from Southern Georgia to Southern Florida and assumed the position of Chief of Police at the Clewiston Police Department. In the 11 years that Chief Gutshall has been with the Clewiston Police, the amount of crime committed in Clewiston has dropped dramatically. According to data reported by city-data. com, crime has fallen from 929.3 crimes per 100,000 population in 2002 to 268.8 crimes per 100,000 population in 2011 -a statistic best represented graphically. Except for a slight rise in crime in 2008, the crime rate has fallen every year since Chief Gutshall joined the Clewiston Police, a statistic he is “quite proud of.” Apart from his success in lowering the crime rate in Clewiston, Chief Gutshall has many other accomplishments under his police belt, many that he credits to the generosity of Clewiston’s City Commission. “This commission has been so generous. They’ve been very generous to give me all the tools and help ... that I needed, and it’s worked. They allowed me to bring in state retirement, they allowed me to up the pay scale a little bit, so we were able to compete with police departments and sheriff’s of ces statewide. I brought in some very good help. It’s not every small, rural department that can produce a national police of cer of the year, and we’ve been able to do that,” said Chief Gutshall, in reference to Of cer Justin Spence, who was recognized as the Attorney General’s Of cer of the Year in 2008. Chief Gutshall also refers some of his department’s success to former Assistant Chief Kristine Petersen. “Probably the best thing I did for me, this department, and this city was hire Kristine Petersen as assistant chief,” said Chief Gutshall. Peterson currently runs the criminal justice program at Clewiston High School (CHS) full-time. “She helped us through some rough stretches. There were just days there’s not enough of me to go around and she was able to stand in the gap.” Along with the criminal justice program, the police explorers program at CHS is also dear to Chief Gutshall’s heart. Comparing it to the Boy Scouts of America and funded partially by the “cuss pitcher” in his of ce, Chief Gutshall lauded the program, which teaches teens everything they need to know about being an of cer without actually going out and putting it to practice. The Police Explorers program is important to Chief Gutshall in more than one way. “The more time we can spend with kids before they leave high school, the less I’m going to have to deal with them ve years from now,” he explained. “Being able to put a little paint on the walls of their lives has been exciting to me. Our explorer program is second to none.” Though he tries to relegate his department’s accomplishments to others, Chief Gutshall cannot shy away from the limelight for too long. He received an award just this year for his work on the Florida Police Chief’s Association (FPCA). As a member of the assocation, Chief Gutshall helps to ensure that police executives receive the mandated training required by the state of Florida. According to Chief Gutshall, the FPCA brings in people from around the world to train Florida’s police executives; those executives then bring their newfound expertise back to their communities. Chief Gutshall, who has been part of the association for 10 years, said being recognized by his peers for his commitment was “special to him,” but it is the program itself that Chief Gutshall is most proud of. “I just wonder how much effect we may have had on some police departments along the way,” he said. Chief Gutshall attributes his achievements and successes as chief to good management practices. “The secret to success,” he said, “is hiring people that are smarter than you are and taking their advice, listening to it. It takes every different personality under the sun to do something like this.” GutshallContinued From Page 1

In the employment section of the classifieds The Clewiston Public Library purchased Rosetta Stone language software and had it installed on the library’s computers. Rosetta Stone is now available for the public to use, free of charge, to learn Spanish. Right now, only Basic Spanish is available. To use Rosetta Stone, library visitors must rst register at the front desk. This process takes only a few minutes and involves picking a username and password. Once these are selected, users can log in on library computers and begin learning. Headphone sets are needed to use Rosetta Stone, so bring your own. Budgets permitting, the library hopes to add other languages in the future, starting with English as a second language, then expanding to French and perhaps other languages, as well. So, come down to the Clewiston Library and learn Spanish with Rosetta Stone. For more information, please call the library at 863-983-1493. Clewiston Library Hosts Rosetta Stone top of bad money.” Commissioners agreed that permanent restrooms at Trinidad Park were a necessity and the next move was to gure out where the money would come from. Commissioners also hoped to give Active Citizens For Children (ACFC) more money for the Sweetest Town Playground. As of now, ACFC is short $19,000. Commissioner Rick Miller suggested using money from the recreation fund to cover the costs of the restrooms and using any leftover money for ACFC’s playground. According to Finance Director Ted Byrd, the recreation fund will have about $30,000 left over, after the cost of the new Spray Park and C.S. Mott Swimming Pool repairs are paid for. A discussion about moving funds around and slashing department wish lists ensued. This discussion landed on the golf course budgeting ve new golf carts for $20,000. “Do we really need ve more golf carts?” asked Commissioner Rodriguez of the Golf Superintendent Ronnie Ford. Commissioner Rodriguez admitted to vetoing new golf carts in the previous three years, and stood ready to do it again a fourth year. Commissioner Rodriguez suggested taking the $20,000 budget for new golf carts and using the money somewhere else. The discussion did not shy away from Clewiston’s Golf Course. According to Byrd, the golf course’s projected revenue totaled $341,000, while the projected budget totaled $789,000. “We’re going to supplement $448,000?” asked Commissioner Pittman. Ford anticipated better revenue numbers in the next few months, before the end of scal year 2013, but commissioners came to the conclusion that $100,000 needed to be chopped from the golf course’s budget. “I like what I see out there. I think we got things going in the right direction. I know that the numbers are not where we need them to be, but we’re going to work on that. I think we’re running things a little tighter out there, we’ve trimmed some of the fat. Now we just have to get more players out there,” said Commissioner Rodriguez. Other suggestions about lowering the golf course’s budget included having members of Clewiston High School’s golf team volunteer in the Pro Shop, which would cut some of the money needed for salaried workers. At the end of the golf course discussion, Clewiston resident Jerry Cochran stepped forward to speak to the commissioners. Cochran rst addressed the fact that the city is behind schedule on street paving, saying the roads in Clewiston are “a sorry state of affairs.” “I don’t think the citizens approved a tax on gasoline to improve the roads so [the commission] could turn around and cut what they’re spending. If you’re not going to spend it on roads, then give me back my tax,” said Cochran. Cochran then addressed the issue of the possible takeover of the Clewiston Police Department. “We’re paying over ve million dollars a year on police services in this city between the sheriff’s of ce and our local police department. That is, as I said last year, over a million dollars per square mile. That’s ludicrous!” exclaimed Cochran, who then suggested nding money in the budget to hire a consultant who could offer suggestions about how best to handle the expensive situation. Cochran also suggested doing what West Palm Beach, Boca Raton, and other coastal cities have done, which is not shutting down the police department, but telling the sheriff’s of ce that the city will only pay for mandatory expenses and nothing else. Cochran ended his spiel by chastising the commissioners for nickel and diming their way through the budget, saying they should not have to debate putting in permanent restrooms at Trinidad Park. Next, Ava Barrett, director of the Clewiston Library, brought forward the issue of the old computers at the library. The computers, Barrett said, are 12 years old and the citizens of Clewiston and Hendry County rely on those computers for the internet, job searches and other important needs. Although there is no money in the library’s budget for new computers, commissioners acknowledged that an upgrade is necessary and considered alternative options to make it happen. Before the meeting adjourned, commissioners gave Finance Director Byrd some new direction for the budget and scheduled the next budget meeting for Thursday, August 15, after their regular workshop.

15 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 25, 2013 BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins Church, ClewistonNaiman was a commander for the King of Aram (2 Kings 5ff). He did great things for the king, but he suffered from leprosy. Needless to say, the king was worried about his “valiant soldier” and wanted things to be better for him. A slave girl that served Naiman’s wife told her about seeing the prophet Elisha in Samaria. Out of desperation, Naiman tells his king about the possibility of being healed. The story goes on: The King of Aram asks a favor from the King of Israel, but the latter is fearful. He remarks, “Am I God?” Nevertheless, when Elisha hears of his king’s plight, he says, “Have the man come to me and he will know there is a prophet in Israel.” Elisha is obviously a man of faith and not daunted by the dif culty of the situation. Naiman shows up at Elisha’s house, complete with chariots, horses and contingent. Elisha sends out a messenger to say, “Go and wash in the Jordan seven times ... (v. 10),” and Naiman is incensed. He talks about better rivers back home, surely the prophet would come out and wave his hand over him, but no, he sends only a messenger. Naiman’s servants get hold of him and convince him to do what the prophet bids him to do. He does it and he is healed. That is the story of many of us. We expect God to act in a certain way for us, but God chooses otherwise. We are anticipating what God should do and He goes and does something else. We call upon Him when our other “gods” let us down, and we don’t like the answer. I see God at work in strange ways sometimes, but He’s in there working even if I don’t always understand, or things aren’t going as I think they ought to go. That’s something I’ve come to believe and know. Elisha speaks for the God he knows and doesn’t pull any punches. He tells his king, “Have the man come to me ...” and Naiman shows up. Elisha is a man of faith in spite of the wrangling between kings, or the political rami cations of “what if we fail” or the trying to second guess the powers that be. He will pray. He has faith his prayers will be answered, and his prayers were answered. Today, I’ve seen a lot of pray-ers who attempt to be “politically correct” and not offend anyone with their prayers, to try to be all-inclusive lest someone not like their offerings. I believe that when someone calls upon me to pray, they want me to use prayers that speak to the God I know and who will act. I am not denigrating the prayers of others. They do the same thing and I respect their invoking God as they understand Him. At one level, I believe we all offer such prayers. Elisha no doubt knew there were gods in Aram, but was called upon because of his faith in the God he knew. That worked and continues to work. I do the same when I call upon someone for any kind of help or offering. Trusting that he is doing the best within his own sphere of activity, profession or vocation. I expect him to offer me the best he has to give as he understands it, taking my needs into consideration but understanding I call upon him because he has something to offer. “In my father’s house there are many mansions ...” (John) and the Lord prayed “... that they all may be one ...” -Yes, and I believe that we have a responsibility to work toward that end. In the meantime and in the tradition of Elisha and so many, many others, let us offer our best: that we contribute to the breadth and depths of the traditions of faith, with all of the richness and variety that may add to our understanding.
