BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsPedro Roman-Feliciano had only been home a few short days after a months-long stint working out of state when he was allegedly shot outside his home by a masked man on August 11. Though it seemed Feliciano, 27, of Clewiston, was the only target, one bullet grazed the forehead of a veyear-old boy who witnessed the entire frightening scene play out in front of him. The shooting occurred around 11:30 p.m. on Sunday, August 11. Feliciano told deputies that he was talking on the phone outside of his home when two people "jumped" him. According to Feliciano's testimony, one of the two alleged attackers shouted "where is the money?" before Feliciano was struck with the pistol. Feliciano's wife, Sarah Rodriguez, 24, of Clewiston, told The Clewiston News that she came out of her bedroom into the living room when she heard screaming outside. She could see the gunman standing outside through the open door. Rodriguez's mother, Sarah Yanes, 48, of Clewiston, also ran out of her bedroom when she heard a gunshot and Feliciano screaming. Yanes told The Clewiston News she heard two gunshots that night, though a second gunshot was not reported in the police report.

Clewiston Budget Talks ContinueSEE MEETING  11 Debate about new, championship golf course in LaBelleBY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA presentation by the vice president of Billy Casper Golf led the Board of County Commissioners (BOCC) into a heated debate at their regular meeting in Clewiston on August 13. Billy Casper Golf is a golf course management rm named for golf legend Billy Casper. It manages over 140 facilities around the country and is currently setting its sights on LaBelle. Doug White, vice president of Billy Casper Golf, provided the BOCC with an informative presentation on the rm's plans to build a brand new golf course in LaBelle, which the rm plans to have open by November 2014, according to White. The new, classic-style golf course would be designed by Jerry Lemons, president and owner of golf course designing rm Golf Links Inc., and would feature shorter fairways that are friendly to new golfers. Lemons said that, nowadays, golf courses are built "way too long, way too hard, take too much time and are too expensive to play." The shorter fairways would make play easier for beginners, while the strategically placed bunkers and other obstacles would make play challenging for more experienced golfers.

From high blood pressure to cancer, serious ailments often strike, despite efforts to maintain good health. With the rapid pace of medical advancements and treatment options emerging, conventional medical wisdom can sometimes lag behind innovations in disease management. Furthermore, there’s often little attention paid to nutrition’s role in health conditions. “Our healthcare system is a disease model, not a prevention model, and reimbursement is based upon sickness, not wellness. We need to better integrate all facets of care,” says Dr. Steven V. Joyal, chief medical of cer with Life Extension, Inc., an organization dedicated to increasing the functional human lifespan. It’s this thinking that spurred the creation of Life Extension’s 2014 edition of the Disease Prevention and Treatment Book, which seeks to ll those gaps. From cancer to multiple sclerosis, the book offers 1,400 pages of information on integrating pharmaceutical treatment options, nutritional support and lifestyle changes for optimal health. For example, high blood pressure: A major risk factor for heart disease, stroke, congestive heart failure and kidney disease, high blood pressure threatens the life of every third American adult. Intensive lifestyle changes can ease blood pressure management. When this isn’t enough, pharmaceutical options can help. For example, blood pressure is best controlled with lower doses of multiple antihypertensive medications rather than a single large dose of medication. Furthermore, side effects can be greatly reduced. “Many patients are lulled into a false sense of security by normal blood pressure readings at their periodic doctor’s visits. But quite frequently, patients experience gaps in control, putting them at risk for stroke and heart attack,” says Joyal. Joyal recommends considering the following: With an inexpensive at-home blood pressure monitor, take readings at multiple times throughout the day, tracking values over time. A doctor can determine whether to modify the current treatment regimen based upon the results. Stay t and exercise. A healthy body weight and high degree of cardiorespiratory tness reduce hypertension risk, and can help one achieve better control if one is already suffering from hypertension. Hold the salt. High sodium intake can make high blood pressure worse. Read labels. Even if one is not adding extra salt to meals, many prepackaged convenience foods, meats and cheeses contain signi cant amounts of sodium. Get plenty of bene cial nutrients, especially potassium and magnesium, which are important for vascular health. Rheumatoid Arthritis Rheumatoid arthritis could pose more than just a risk to comfort. Systemic in ammation hastens the onset of other age-related diseases, including cardiovascular disease. “For optimal longevity, we need to integrate lifestyle changes with pharmaceutical treatments, rather than blindly assume that all a patient needs is more medication,” says Joyal. In addition to doctor-prescribed treatments, Life Extension researchers have scoured medical literature, nding several nutrients that help support health in rheumatoid arthritis patients: sh oil, krill oil blend, Gamma linolenic acid, vitamin D, vitamin B6, green tea extract, quercetin, and folate. By taking advantage of new ndings in medicine and science, optimal health may be better achieved. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 florida.newszap.com Check out these new features: • Daily Local News Updates • New interactive and easy to navigate format • Plus much, much more!Come see for yourself! 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 22, 2013 New Health Findings Can Help Combat Common Ailments PHOTO/ COURTESY: LIFE EXTENSION BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchI have noted the proliferation of honori c titles people like today, one of the most common being “doctor.” One medical professional is lobbying to have the title restricted to medical doctors (this came as no surprise to me!) and was reminiscent of years gone by when the “doctor” was involved in healing of people and given respect in his community. Nowadays, there are scads of “doctors.” It’s interesting to me to look at how the title is sometimes conferred. Certain religious institutions offer doctoral degrees for a few summers of home reading and a rather lengthy “term paper.” “Schools” offer them with varying degrees (no pun intended) of rigor and they seem to have an appeal to some who simply must have that title. For me, it came after three and a half years of full-time study and earning two Master’s degrees, one from a secular university and one from a seminary. My school was accredited (many are not accredited) by the U.S. Department of Education and regional accrediting agencies. My work was in one of the healing arts -an adjunctive skill to my ministry. In Jesus’ day, “Rabbi” was a title of dignity and given to designate those specially revered. Jesus cautioned His followers that there was an equality among them, that they were to follow the one Master and Teacher (Matthew 23:10). He even took exception when a ruler called Him “Good teacher ...” (Luke 18:18), not being concerned about being called “teacher” or “rabbi” but “good.” God alone was designated as “good,” Jesus’ teaching came with a sense of place and humility. He was revered by the ruler because of what He did and taught, not because of titles. I regard it as unfortunate that we do not hold “teacher” in the same esteem as it once was held: an honorable profession worthy of being respected with the same dignity as that of all true professionals. Many of them have levels of education equivalent to those in the healing arts and have much to offer to those they serve. I was behind a teacher recently at a check-out counter. She was stocking up on school supplies -crayons and pencils, notebooks and book-bags. There were too many items to have been a purchase of her own children; it was obvious to me that she was a teacher. I told her, “I hope they appreciate it!” and watched as a three-digit total was rung up. She smiled and commented that she was trying to take advantage of the tax rebate that comes annually for school items. Her purchase was sizeable enough to make this rebate worth seeking on a teacher’s salary. I knew I was in the presence of a professional, one worthy of being called “teacher” in the fullest meaning of the term. I have shared in their ranks, teaching at a Church school, at the college level, in ministerial training programs and in ministry for many years. The work of being a pastor is teaching on many levels; much of the work is on a one-toone level and involves sharing between two persons with the hope that the seeker may bene t from a fellow searcher. One of my mentors, a college professor who entered the ministry later in life, shared some Greek etymology, Education, he said, comes from Greek, meaning “to bring out,” and has to do with being able to draw out of us what was already inside, making us realize what we knew all of the time. “Education” is putting it into words, asking the right questions, pointing out what was there, making us realize for ourselves ... and being that genius who can do it. Education in faith is nding what lls that God-sized hole in a heart and showing us who lls it. The rabbi is the one who did it. Those who bring out the best in us, who we really are, deserve our respect and honor. Their presence, dedication and love for their work is an honor that no title can bring.

BY RALPH SEYMOUR Concerned Clewiston ResidentI have six sons of my own, I love each one of them individually. They are all very young men, one of my sons is still a minor child, just one year younger than Trayvon Martin, the shooting victim in a recent headline court case. So, it is with a heavy heart, though with a clear head, that I make this suggestion. Both to the mother and to the father of young Trayvon, please brace yourselves with prayer from all of your religious guidance that you have there around you. Then, call a news conference with all of the networks that you can interest for an announcement. While holding hands to signal a unity of mind and spirit, announce to the gathering that, “We, the mother and the father of Trayvon Martin, would like to apologize to the residents and to the city of Sanford, Fla. for not believing George Zimmerman when he said that he killed our son in self-defense out of fear of losing his life. And we apologize for dragging Mr. Zimmerman’s name and the good name of the city of Sanford, Fla. through a long and ‘senseless’ trial.” After thanking everyone for showing up, walk away from the microphones, answering no questions, leaving an exclamation point forever to be explained by the United States’ government about the affairs of its citizens and the city of Sanford, Fla. concerning the law enforcement body and its laws, as they apply only to some of the people of that great city. That statement, if made by those two people, will touch America in a way and in a place that it has never been touched before. Because nothing has changed, and it took this to bring us to that realization. First, the irony, then the implication and nally, the impact of the apology as it boils over in the minds of the people all over the world as they ask, “What are they apologizing for?” Then maybe things will begin to change for the better. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 3 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 COMMUNITY OPINIONS I Speak Only for Myself, an Apology is Needed “We, the mother and the father of Trayvon Martin, would like to apologize to the residents and to the city of Sanford, Fla., for not believing George Zimmerman when he said that he killed our son in selfdefense.” — Ralph Seymour Hope HealthCare Services recently was awarded a $5,000 grant from BJ’s Charitable Foundation to support the Hope Connections program.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee August 22, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry Glades AudubonCommon Grackles breed in most areas in North America east of the Rocky Mountains and south of the tundra. Of the three subspecies of this bird, the one known as the Florida Grackle (Q.q. guiscual) lives year-round from Southeastern North Carolina south through Florida. The existing subspecies of Common Grackle are distinguished by the color of their back, tail, belly and, to a lesser extent, their head. Florida Grackles appear to be black from a distance, but normally have a greenish-black back, blue-green tail, purple head and purpleblue belly. These large, lanky birds are smaller than Boat-tailed Grackles. Their head is at and they have a slightly downward-curved bill that is longer than those of most blackbirds. Males are slightly larger than females. Young birds are dark brown with a dark eye that turns bright gold when they become adults. The oldest recorded Common Grackle lived to be 22 years and 11 months old. Common Grackle fossils, which have been found from Florida to Ontario, have been dated to the Pleistocene Era 12,000 years ago. These noisy, gregarious birds communicate with body motions, as well as sounds. Males will make a threatening bill-up display, which consists of an upward movement of the head so the bill is almost vertical, or they will spread their tail feathers into a keeled "V" shape accompanied by exaggerated apping of the wings in response to another male. Common Grackles songs include a variety of squeaks, whistles and croaks. The typical song of males and females is a guttural "readle-eak," followed by high-pitched clear whistles. They make a short harsh "chaa" or "chitip" call when alarmed, taking ight or being approached by other grackles. Males' singing decreases through incubation, but they will make a short nasal call while perching in the nesting colony. These birds prefer habitats near fresh water in cypress swamps, pine forests, hammocks, orange groves and suburban areas. Large ocks are often seen foraging on lawns for seeds or in feedlots and on agricultural elds for grains such as corn or rice. They also eat invertebrates and mice, wade into water to catch small sh, rob eggs from birds' nests and eat adult birds. Migrating Common Grackles return to their nesting ground from mid-February through early March, with males arriving about a week before the females. In Florida, egg laying may begin as early as March or as late as July. Females usually choose the nest site and build the nest with occasional help from the male. The bulky nest is built in trees, cattails, bushes, broken stubs, old woodpecker holes and, occasionally, the underside of an active Osprey nest. It is located about two feet above ground or water and is made of course grasses, pine needles, roots, twigs, roots and mud. The female lays one to seven slightly glossy eggs, which she incubates for 10 to 14 days while the male remains closeby, guarding the nest from predators. Both parents feed the helpless young by forcing food into the hatching mouths. The young edge at 16 to 20 days of age.

The public has reported hundreds of sightings of Florida panthers to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission's (FWC) website. The website was launched a year ago and is a place for people to record when and where they saw a panther or its tracks. As of August 2013, the public had submitted 790 sightings to MyFWC.com/PantherSightings. Only 12 percent of the reports included a photograph and could be evaluated by Commission biologists. Of those with photos, the majority were con rmed as panthers. Other animals identi ed by FWC biologists were bobcats, foxes, coyotes, dogs, house cats and even a monkey. Most often, the reported animal or tracks belonged to a bobcat, not a panther. The veri ed panther reports were largely con ned to Southwest Florida, the well-documented breeding range for panthers in the state. There were also several veri ed sightings in South-Central Florida. "The public's willingness to share what they have seen or collected on game cameras is incredibly helpful and shows us where panthers presumably are roaming in Florida," said Darrell Land, who heads the FWC's panther team. "We thank everyone using the Report Florida Panther Sightings website and encourage others to participate in this citizen-science venture. "As the population of this endangered species grows, the FWC expects more Florida panthers to be seen in areas of the state where they have not lived for decades," Land said. "To properly plan and manage for the expansion of the panther's range in Florida, information about where the panthers are is vital." The FWC has a new "E-Z guide to identify panther tracks," available at www.FloridaPantherNet.org. The Florida panther population is estimated to be 100 to 160 adults and yearlings, a gure that does not include panther kittens. As recently as the 1970s, the Florida panther was close to disappearing, with as few as 20 animals in the wild. Learn more about Florida panthers at www.FloridaPantherNet.org.

Across the country, parents are beginning to notice that today’s classroom looks quite different from the classroom they experienced in their own school days. From personalized learning technologies to new educational standards, teachers and administrators are using a variety of tools to ensure students are better prepared to succeed than ever before. In this era of innovation in education, this school year will be particularly exciting, in part because states will be piloting assessments aligned to the Common Core State Standards, the new set of K-12 educational standards designed to improve students’ readiness for college and future careers. So just what do these changes mean for kids? Shift to New Standards Schools nationwide are nding new ways to provide individually tailored lesson plans while addressing the Common Core State Standards, often relying on a new generation of educational technologies that help students learn and succeed at their own pace. “Even before the advent of the Common Core, we knew that preparing students for the demands of college and careers required setting a solid foundation in skills such as reading comprehension and writing,” said Christine Willig, senior vice president of products at McGraw-Hill School Education. “When the new standards reiterated the importance of these skills, we saw an opportunity to build an entirely new program that would address the Common Core requirements, by leveraging contemporary cognitive science about how we learn, using cutting-edge digital tools.” Personalized Learning Education research has shown that instruction becomes more effective when tailored to students’ unique learning styles and needs. Personalized learning tends to lead to deeper learning -which will help students meet many of the new Common Core standards. As classrooms continue to get bigger, however, delivering that sort of individual attention to students becomes more dif cult. With this in mind, educational software have been built using entirely new educational technologies, offering interconnected platforms personalized for students and teachers and accessible across any device. Other digital learning tools use additional techniques to help students succeed, including using “adaptive” technology to continually assess students’ knowledge, skill and con dence levels, and to create a unique study path designed to help each student in the topics and concepts they need most -a level of personalization previously only available from a personal tutor. In this ever-evolving educational landscape, keeping up with the changes can seem daunting -but it needn’t be. Parents can rest assured that teachers are increasingly equipped with new technologies that ensure their students are getting the personalized attention they need to improve their chances for long-term success. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Best Vision Exam is the answer to your eye health and your wallet. Call us today for details on back to school specials 5 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades counties continue to raise awareness about Naegleria fowleri in light of the recent conrmed case. There is a standard process that the Department of Health follows for all diseases, regardless of the disease. That process involves interviewing the family to ask about possible exposure sources. The Department of Health is working closely with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the CDC provided the testing that con rmed the case in Glades County. The exact water source of exposure cannot be exactly identi ed because the amoeba occurs naturally in warm freshwater sources such as rivers, lakes, ponds, canals and ditches. Because the amoeba is found in most freshwater sources, and because of the inconsistency in test results, the CDC does not recommend speci c testing of freshwater sources. For informational research, the CDC does collect information such as water temperatures, water depths, water clarity and air temperatures in the surrounding areas of where a case has been conrmed. The low number of infections makes it dif cult to know why a few people have been infected compared to the millions of other people that used the same or similar waters across the U.S. There were local news reports questioning exposure risks from water sprinklers. According to the CDC, there are no reports of infections from this route of exposure in the U.S. and it would be very unlikely that this activity could lead to infection. If the sprinklers are using canal water, there would be a slightly higher risk, but it would still be very unlikely to contract the disease, since people would not generally force that water up their nose. The organism is most commonly found in warm freshwater (lakes, rivers, ponds, canals and ditches). It should be removed in treated tap water that uses ltration and disinfection and would not be expected to be found in groundwater from private wells (the water is cooler than ideal for Naegleria growth and there would not be abundant bacteria for Naegleria to feed on). Ways to reduce your risk of infection: Limit the amount of water going up your nose. Hold your nose shut, use nose clips or keep your head above water when taking part in warm freshwater-related activities. Avoid water-related activities in warm freshwater during periods of high water temperature and low water levels. Avoid digging in or stirring up the sediment while taking part in water-related activities in shallow, warm freshwater areas.

driguez’s ve-year-old son ran out from behind her towards Feliciano and hugged his leg just as the second gunshot went off, striking Feliciano in the upper right thigh and grazing the ve-yearold boy’s forehead as it exited the other side of Feliciano’s leg. The three witnesses identi ed the suspect as Kevin Spaulding, 24, having recognized his voice. Feliciano was airlifted to Lee Memorial Hospital to be treated for his injuries. Rodriguez’s son was transported to Hendry Regional Medical Center, where he received several staples in his head, according to the police report. Both were home the next day. Spaulding was arrested after Clewiston Police Department’s K-9 Unit was called in to assist. The K-9 unit followed Spaulding’s scent from Feliciano’s house, across a canal with a pipe crossing, to another residence less than a mile away, where he was arrested on charges of battery, aggravated battery, robbery and child neglect, according to the arrest report. The second person, who allegedly jumped Feliciano along with the shooter, was not apprehended, though Feliciano, Rodriguez and Yanes believe they know who the person was. Rodriguez and Yanes both told The Clewiston News they recognized the voice and body type of the second assailant and identi ed her as Rodriguez’s ex-girlfriend. The two also stated that after the incident, Rodriguez’s ve-year-old son repeatedly said that Rodriguez’s ex-girlfriend and Kevin “shot him.” They also reported that Rodriguez’s ex-girlfriend had made death threats against Feliciano prior to the shooting. Yanes stated that she “didn’t think anything of the threats.” According to Rodriguez and Yanes, however, the HCSO said they do not have enough evidence to arrest Rodriguez’s ex-girlfriend, despite their testimony. Since the shooting, Feliciano and his family are constantly on guard in their own home. With the lights turned off and curtains drawn, Rodriguez told a reporter that her veyear-old son is afraid to go to the bathroom alone and refuses to look out the windows. Yanes explained that she and the family are out of the house by 6 p.m., before it gets dark. “I’m staying at a friend’s house because I’m afraid for me and my children,” said Yanes. The situation escalated on Thursday, August 15 at Westside Elementary School’s Open House. Yanes said that a friend of her ex-girlfriend’s family allegedly attacked her in front of the school. According to Yanes, the woman was parked in a taxi at the front of the school and began yelling profanities at Yanes. Yanes then stated the woman got out of the taxi, slapped her across the face, pushed her into a park bench and began hitting her. Rodriguez, with her right arm in a sling, stated she then stepped in to try and pull the woman off of her mother and a st ght followed. A police report was led, not by Yanes and Rodriguez, but by the woman. According to the police report, the woman stated Yanes initiated the ght by yelling profanities and slapping her across the face. The woman also stated that Rodriguez joined in the ght and attacked her, according to the report. All three women were issued trespass warnings against the school, according to the report, a condition that both Rodriguez and Yanes are upset about. Rodriguez said that this is her son’s rst year in elementary school and now she cannot take him to school or drop him off. “It’s my son’s rst year of elementary school and now we’re banned because of what that girl did,” Rodriguez said.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee A ugust 22, 2013 The new facility would also incorporate a practice putting range and a short-game practice area with PGA golf professionals on-site to help players with their game, said Lemons. The golf course would be paid partly by a Municipal Service Bene t Unit (MSBU) program -78 percent, according to White -and the rest would come from the commercial aspects of the course, including food and drink sales and any banquets held at the facility. Though Billy Casper Golf would build and maintain the golf course, any cash pro ts from the facility would belong to the city of LaBelle, according to White. During his presentation, White delved into the numbers he and Billy Casper Golf believe would be achieved at the new course. According to White, the course is projected to bring 41,000 rounds per year -12,000 potential rounds from members, 34,000 potential rounds from the public and 7,000 potential rounds from seasonal visitors. White also said the golf course could be maintained at $450,000 per year, a relatively low number that White attributes to the golf course's initial "from the ground up" design. Because Billy Casper Golf is maintaining the course, they will be in charge of the payroll -a potential $200,000 per year savings, according to White -and the account books. The attractive presentation left room for skeptics to step in and question the numbers. Commissioner Al Perry was the rst to speak up. "We have a very nice municipal golf course right up the road," said Commissioner Perry in reference to the Clewiston Golf Course. "We don't get 22 thousand rounds per year, I don't think we ever have. It's probably more like 15 to 16 thousand annual rounds. I don't understand how you can justify you're going to get 42 thousand rounds the rst year in LaBelle. I love the game of golf and I'm not against this, it just doesn't make any sense to me. These numbers just don't add up and I don't know where you got them from. If you can convince me otherwise I'll get behind you, but I don't see you meeting these numbers." White countered Commissioner Perry's argument by saying the course would pull tourists from the Fort Myers area because it carries the name of the fourth greatest golfer in the history of the game. White also declared that Billy Casper Golf has the highest retention of golfers in the industry. The new course, White said, would bolster the largest growing area of municipal golf, ladies golf, and would utilize social media and other marketing techniques to bring in customers. The course would need to bring in $1.2 million per year in order to make a pro t, according to White, and he seemed con dent that the course would be able to achieve it. Commissioner Perry was set and ready to argue a counterpoint when Commissioner Don Davis stepped into the conversation. "This has no ride-along taxes involved whatsoever. The businesspeople of LaBelle want to do this. It ain't got nothing to do with Clewiston, Pioneer or nothing. It's the businesspeople that want this," stated Commissioner Davis. Commissioner Perry rebutted. "I represent the people of LaBelle and I don't think they're getting the true numbers and I don't think he's going to convince me otherwise," he said. Commissioner Davis criticized Commissioner Perry for judging the new course by the "way Clewiston's been run," and insinuated that Clewiston Golf Course was losing money because of mismanagement. Commissioner Perry responded. "No, I'm not doing that and I'm sorry you don't like it. ... I know how to compare numbers. I'm questioning his numbers that are in ated, in my opinion, and the people of LaBelle need to know that," he said, matter of factly. The conversation was ended by Commissioner Davis, who told Commissioner Perry to "go ahead and do your thing, baby." White thanked the commissioners for their attention, and the board was left to ponder the presentation and to consider whether or not the golf course would live up to Billy Casper Golf's expectations. Apart from listening to the presentation, county commissioners voted ve to zero to use Public Risk Management (PRM) for the county's property and casualty insurance policy for scal year 2014. The vote came after a lengthy discussion about the appraisal company PRM uses to calculate the cost of replacing buildings and other such assets after a natural disaster occurs. Chairman Karson Turner said the "county was removed from the equation" when contractors were brought in to rebuild after Hurricane Wilma in 2005, and he does not want to see that repeated. The discussion ended when PRM representative Andrew Cooper assured commissioners that Hendry County would be happy with its contractor from day one. Cooper also suggested the board nd one or two contractors who would be willing to set up a pre-contract, that way the contractors would be waiting for the county's call should any type of disaster take place. Before the meeting adjourned, commissioners also voted ve to zero to rescind the bid award to outsource the mowing of county facilities. The county was able to use its own groundskeeping staff to mow the facilities, avoiding three layoffs that would have resulted had the county used a private company to do the mowing. GolfContinued From Page 1 recreation programs. The recreation department would also be starting off scal year 2014 with $47,500 in their budget. This year, the John Boy Auditorium was removed from the recreation department's budget and analyzed as its own separate entity. By doing this, the commissioners were able to see exactly what it costs to operate the auditorium. According to Byrd, half of the cost of operation is covered by the fees paid in order to use to auditorium. This revelation led to a conversation about who uses the auditorium. According to Byrd, roughly half of the organizations utilizing the auditorium are governmental organizations, as well as nonpro t organizations. Nonpro ts are required to pay a fee of $500 to use the auditorium, while governmental organizations are able to use the facility at no charge. Florida Game and Fish is one of the organizations using the auditorium regularly at no charge. Commissioner Mali Gardner questioned why Florida Game and Fish would come to Clewiston in order to conduct their meetings, instead of staying in the West Palm Area. Ramer explained that Florida Game and Fish use the facility quarterly to discuss issues regarding Storm Water Treatment Area-5, as well as Lake Okeechobee maintenance. Ramer added that the members "gas up and eat at our restaurants," and he wants them to "keep coming." The recreation conversation eventually led to the topic of East County Recreation (ECR). Mayor Phillip Roland explained that, at the moment, Clewiston businesses and residents are paying 11 percent of their taxes to recreation. ECR would create a per unit tax amount for all businesses and residents, including unincorporated residents in Eastern Hendry County. Currently, however, ECR cannot get off the ground to make the system work. Commissioners and other ECR board members are looking to West County Recreation, which has a well-functioning system, for guidance. "If we can get this thing up and running like West Rec has, it is going to be better for every taxpayer on the east side of the county for recreation. ... It's going to be a tough two years to get this thing to go through the hoops and to level out," said Mayor Roland. Commissioner Gardner asked if it was possible to have ECR in place for the next budget year. Mayor Roland responded that his hope was to have every unit taxed by 2014 or 2015. The budget meeting was then followed by the city commission's regular meeting. Ramon Iglesias of Clewiston Marina, Inc. asked commissioners to allow a special exception for the Marina to operate an RV Park within a residential district. The park would be located on the Marina's property and would consist of 42 units housing non-permanent, seasonal residents. Iglesias also asked commissioners to allow a mobile home to be placed within the park to be used as the caretaker's home. Commissioners voted ve to zero to allow the Marina to operate the RV Park with certain conditions, including planting a vegetative buffer along the west side of the property and directing the lighting away from neighboring residents. Commissioners also stipulated that the caretaker's mobile home must "look like new" in order to be used on the property. Commissioner Gardner commended the RV Park, sighting the improvements such economic development could bring to Clewiston. Another agenda item at the commission meeting included a request by Clewiston resident Mary Jackson to reduce the amount of a code violation against her home. In 2010, Jackson was issued a code violation for a sewer project. Jackson was under the impression that she took care of the violation, however, it was only partially xed and fees continued to accrue over the next couple of years. What began as a $300 violation cost, turned into $18,000 after three years of daily $25 fees. Commissioners voted four to one -with Commissioner Gardner voting against the motion -to reduce Jackson's fee to $10,000 plus the principal of the sewer lien, to be paid within 90 days. The issue, however, led to a conversation about better informing residents when they have similar, daily-accruing fees. Commissioners recommended that a system be in place to send letters out every 90 days or every six months to inform residents that a fee is accumulating. Before the meeting adjourned, commissioners acknowledged the issue of downtown parking, after Commissioner Rodriguez entertained the idea of adding parking spaces near his business. Commissioners agreed to discuss the issue at length at the start of the new scal year in October. MeetingContinued From Page 1 The Clewiston Police Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a suspect in a robbery that occurred at the Marathon (West) Gas Station in Clewiston earlier this month. According to police, the robbery happened at approximately 9:52 p.m. on August 13. Surveillance video obtained by Clewiston Police shows the suspect to be a heavy-set female, wearing a white, long-sleeved shirt, shorts and black sneakers with pink laces at the time of the robbery. Less detailed, however, is what the suspect looks like; her face was covered by a mask during the robbery. The suspect got away with an undisclosed amount of money, authorities reported. Clewiston Police have released a video still taken from the surveillance video obtained at the scene and are asking the public to help their search for the alleged suspect. If you have any information about the robbery or the individual in this picture, please contact the Clewiston Police Department at 863-983-1474.
