BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsDollar Tree, Pizza Hut, Main Street Subs, Opie’s Barber Shop, Sweetown Cafe, Allied Recycling, All Juice and Beverage -just a few of the new businesses that have or will be opening up shop in America’s Sweetest Town. More and more businesses are setting their sights on Clewiston and Travis Reese, director of Community Development, says this is a good sign that the Clewiston economy is picking up after years of stagnation. There has been a recent uptrend in building permits, says Reese, indicating the economy -as far as the city is concerned -is much more stable, and explains the importance of this for the community. “For any community, it is important to have growth and a stable economy. We don’t want our kids to have to travel to other places to nd jobs. We want a viable community,” says Reese. New businesses mean new jobs. BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsWhen former County Commissioner Al Perry began his campaign for of ce in 2010, he took the traditional route and went door to door asking for votes from Hendry County’s citizens. Passionate about his potential position, the former commissioner said he worked hard to get each vote. His hard work paid off, and he won the primary and general election in late 2010. As a commissioner, Perry said he has tried to vote on issues based on what he believed was right and what was best for Hendry County. He said he listened to what people had to say at meetings and when they contacted his of ce, and often changed his mind on how to vote on an issue when he heard the voices of the community. According to Perry, he never sat on the board to make decisions based on political gain. BY JOSE ROMERO Special to e Clewiston NewsThe Tigers didn’t let up against Fort Myers’ Bishop Verot Vikings. They played their hardest, and even warmed up their hardest, yelling and screaming to get themselves in the zone before the game. After psyching themselves up and playing a good game, the Tigers went on to defeat the Vikings, 62-17. The Vikings would have the ball rst this game, but it wasn’t long before the Vikings punted to the Tigers. Not a minute later, Derry West would make a 42-yard carry for a touchdown. The Tigers were setting the tone and rhythm of the game right from the start. After another turnover, Jarvirus Bradford went on to make a touchdown, rushing for 51 yards. From there, it was a back-and-forth of turnovers until the second quarter. It seemed the Vikings weren’t going to take this lying down; their defense was putting up a great effort, but their offense couldn’t capitalize on the opportunities. Immediately at the start of the second quarter, Bradford made another touchdown, this time rushing for 44 yards. The Vikings tried to go for a touchdown of their own, but after seeing that the Tigers’ defense wouldn’t let them through easily, went for and scored a eld goal. The Tigers responded by way of another touchdown, thanks to quarterback Davis Witt’s successful pass to Lenorris Gaines, making the score now 28-3 after Brandon Torres scored another extra point. After yet another quick turnover, Witt passed to Kyree Marshall, resulting in another Tiger touchdown, and New Businesses Court ClewistonCommunity development on the rise as city’s economy heads in a positive direction Perry Addresses Dual-Of ce IssuePerry addresses rumors of possible investigation by State Attorney Tigers Win Homecoming Game, But at a Cost DRIVE A NEW 2014 ESCAPE FOR ONLY $199 PER MONTH 36 month lease with approved credit through Ford Credit. $2839 plus tax, title, & license due at signing.

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) approved the acquisition from Palm Beach County of a key piece of property that will help provide vital freshwater ows to the federally designated "Wild and Scenic" Loxahatchee River. Located on 1,800 acres west of the Beeline Highway, the Mecca Farms parcel will become a shallow-water storage area capable of sending water directly to the unique riverine ecosystem of mangroves, cypress trees, oysters and seagrasses teeming with life. "Freshwater ows are the lifeblood of this extraordinary river," said SFWMD Executive Director Blake Guillory. "By working with Palm Beach County, we have secured a long-term source of water that will help ensure the future health of the wild and scenic Loxahatchee." Signi cant components of the plan include: a $26 million investment from the Save Our Everglades Trust Fund for the District to purchase the property; conveyance of 150 acres of the property to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission (FWC) for an Olympicquality, state-owned shooting range to provide a public recreation bene t; and an option for the county to repurchase approximately 98.56 acres as needed for a new extension alignment of Seminole-Pratt and Whitney Road Mecca Farms Parcel Map 1402. Project Detail and Ecological Bene ts Following a closing on the property, the District will begin work to design and construct a system of pump stations to move water onto the site and earthen embankments capable of holding water up to four feet deep, providing 7,200 acre-feet of storage. Control structures will allow for the gravity ow of water east through the C-18 Canal and into the Northwest Fork of the river. This ow will provide signi cant environmental bene ts, including supplementing water ow to the river during the dry season to meet its minimum ows and levels, which are de ned as the minimum water levels and/or ows required to prevent signi cant harm to the water resources; helping to prevent saltwater intrusion in the lower reaches of the Loxahatchee, which keeps mangroves from encroaching on the cypress slough portion of the river; and repurposing the L-8 Reservoir, originally slated to provide water for the Loxahatchee, to serve as a key component of the Governor's Restoration Strategies plan to improve water quality in the Everglades. Loxahatchee History On May 17, 1985, 7.6 miles of the Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River were designated as a national Wild and Scenic River. Under the National Wild and Scenic River Act of 1968, free- owing rivers with outstanding scenic, recreational, sh and wildlife, historic and cultural values are designated for preservation for the enjoyment and bene t of present and future generations. The Northwest Fork of the Loxahatchee River from Riverbend Park in Jupiter downstream to Jonathan Dickinson State Park in Martin County was the rst river in Florida to receive such a designation. Since 1985, the SFWMD has acquired more than 20,000 acres of land in the river corridor and tributary watersheds for preservation and restoration. Through the Loxahatchee River Preservation Initiative, numerous agencies and local governments have worked together on 65 habitat and water quality restoration projects, most of which have been completed. Nearly $18 million in legislative appropriations have been matched by more than $23 million in local funds to accomplish this work. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 SFWMD Approves Acquisition to Restore LoxahatcheeMecca Farms property provides a direct source of fresh water for the river The Clewiston Sugar Festival is starting a little early this year in planning and organizing for the 2014 event. As its rst fund-raising event of the year, the Sugar Festival Committee will hold the Sugar Festival Kickoff event on Nov. 16 at the John Boy Auditorium in Clewiston. The SF Kickoff event is meant to help begin raising some of the funds needed to contract the main stage entertainment, as well as other SF events that are being planned now for April 2014. The SF Kickoff is set for Nov. 16 beginning at 6 p.m. at the John Boy Auditorium. Planned that night are steak dinners and cocktails provided by the Clewiston Elks Lodge, raf e items, and a dance with music by the popular local band Downtime. "We are looking for the help and support of our local citizens and businesses for this Kickoff event," said Sugar Festival Committee Chairman Pam Kelley. "We are selling tickets to this event now at $40 per person or $75 per couple. We are also hoping our local businesses can help us with donation items to raf e. We have some great raf e items already and even some surprises for the night. It's going to be a very fun event." Chairman Kelley said it takes a lot of funding to put on a quality show each year that is meant to entertain not only our local community and their family members who come each year to visit, but also to draw visitors from the area into Clewiston. Direct Industrial Products is sponsoring the SF Kickoff to help the Sugar Festival get started in raising funds for this year. Those who cannot attend the event can still purchase raf e and 50/50 tickets, as they will be sold in advance and one does not have to be present to win. For SF Kickoff event tickets, raf e tickets and/or 50/50 tickets, please call 863-9837979 or 863-447-3901. Other ways to help: Save the date for April 12, 2014 for the Sugar Festival; "like" the Sugar Festival Facebook page or consider a sponsorship of the 2014 Sugar Festival. "I am always pleased to call Clewiston and Hendry County home because of how we always pull together as a community for the Sugar Festival, both in planning and attending the event," said Chairman Kelley. 2014 Clewiston Sugar Festival Starts With Nov. 16 Fund-Raising EventSUBMITTED PHOTO

BY ESTHER FREDETTE Concerned Clewiston ResidentGolf Course's Hidden Worth ...that was the title of the article in The Clewiston News. The hidden worth needs to be clari ed a lot more than it was in this article. $706,882 in expenses and only $334,291 in revenue. That is a huge difference. The course didn't even make half of what it spent! Say that out loud ...over THREE HUNDRED THOUSAND DOLLARS ...That's a whole lot of money folks. As a taxpayer, I could be more on board with keeping it open if that number were a lot smaller and I mean a lot smaller. No wonder the city can't afford to donate to a playground fund or give employees raises. I don't know whereas charging charities for use of the course is the answer nor do I think that's a good idea. Afterall, they're trying to raise money for good causes and I'm sure their expenses are high enough just to put a fundraiser together. But something de nitely needs to be done because what you're doing right now is costing a lot to the city and taxpayers. And obviously those snowbirds don't do a whole lot of gol ng or those numbers would be much better. E. Fredette.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe Tufted Titmouse is a common breeding bird found in eastern Mexico, north to Nebraska and the Great Lakes, and throughout the eastern United States from Maine to Florida. This resident species is a familiar bird at bird feeders throughout the Panhandle and much of the Florida peninsula. They are frequently reported in Hendry, Glades and Okeechobee Counties. Tufted Titmice are smaller than Northern Cardinals, but they appear larger than other small songbirds at a feeder because of their large head and eye, thick neck and full bodies. Their bushy pointed crest and stout bill help identify Titmice even in silhouette. The black patch just above the bill makes this bird look snub-nosed. They have soft silvery plumage above, and are white below with rust or peach-colored wash down the anks. Juveniles are paler and lack the buff anks and black forehead. The oldest known Tufted Titmouse lived to be 13 years and three months old. This small bird has a nasally and mechanical call which is whistled in series of four to eight repeated notes that sound like "peter-peter-peter." They also make a harsh, fussy, scolding distress call when owls or other predators are sighted and will respond to other birds' distress calls by coming close to investigate or join a group of birds who are mobbing a predator. Tufted Titmice are found in orchards, parks and suburban areas where there is a dense canopy of trees, as well as cypress swamps, pine atwoods and hardwood hammocks. They are often seen itting from branch to branch or hanging upside down and sideways investigating cones, undersides of branches and leaf clusters. They will also hop on the ground searching for fallen seeds or insects, or visit bird feeders looking for food. When they nd large seeds, they will hold the seeds with their feet and hammer it open with their beaks. In fall and winter, they often hoard the shelled seeds in the crevices of tree bark. Their diet consists mainly of insects, seeds, nuts and berries. Titmice nest in natural tree holes, old nest cavities of other birds and natural cavities. The will also nest in arti cial structures, including fence posts, metal pipes or nest boxes. They are unable to excavate their own nest cavities. A cup-shaped nest is built inside the cavity in six to 11 days using damp leaves, moss and grasses, as well as bark strips. The nest is lined with soft materials, such as string and cotton, as well as hair, fur and wool which are sometimes plucked directly for living mammals. One brood is normally raised during the nesting season, which extends from March until June. The female lays three to six white eggs, which have nely spotted shades of brown. She incubates these eggs until they hatch in 12 to 13 days. The young edge when they are 15 to 16 days old.

BY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchOne of the early Christian writers said, “The Church can respond to anything but being ignored.” That’s been a partial experience for me. Many times, there are answers to be given that have come from knowledge or experience. Other times, the answers have come from the person himself who is asking a question. People who have consulted me about a decision to be made often have the answer within them; I am not always able to give “the answer,” but as we explore options, one will stand out. It generally proves to be the right answer for the person at that moment and I am happy to have had a part in helping them nd it. There are other times when the answers come from participating in worship or praying silently alone. I’ve had people tell me that what I said on a given Sunday morning spoke to them directly -no credit taken by me and something certainly not something I planned. That’s the way God works; we are instruments in His scheme of things and that’s enough. Other times, my answers have come through insights gained while praying about some problem for others or for myself. I hope I’ve learned not to make hasty decisions when something important is to be decided. Thinking, meditating, praying, giving myself time to follow up on the various options that present themselves have led me to not regret my choices later. Then there are those who ignore the community of the faithful. How do we respond to them? I remember the words of one leader who I met some years ago in his of ce while seeking to undertake another ministry. My calling led me to want to explore new horizons and seek something beyond what many of my colleagues were doing. I sought to see if I could minister in another language, another culture, another place than the traditional ones I had earlier anticipated to be my life’s work. As we sat in his of ce, I outlined what I was feeling called to do but worried if there might be a place for such a ministry in his area. He assured me that there was and I asked, “How do you go about it?” His answer was, “You wait until the opportunity presents itself, then move!” I re ected that is how the Church has always responded to being ignored: wait until the opportunity presents itself, then go with it. As I read the New Testament, I nd no account of Jesus telling people who come to him, “Look, I’m busy right now” or “Can you come back later?” or “That’s not my problem.” Accounts of reaching out take place; a man approaches Jesus when he comes to a crowd and asks help for his son (Matthew 16:14ff), or as He is challenged while teaching in the temple (Matthew 21;23ff, Mark 11:27ff), or while when someone is on the roadside crying to Him as he passes (Mark 10:47ff). Sometimes, His ministrations take place while visiting a town and being encountered by a leper (Luke 5:12ff), or when in the midst of teaching, a man is lowered through the roof right in front of Him (Luke 5:18ff). Jesus stopped teaching and takes time out to heal. Time after time, he responds when the opportunity presents itself. This is the example I see Him leaving for us. Those who have ignored or avoided or sidestepped for so long are nevertheless received and given aid when asking for it. The old Church leader and my potential guide was right. The English writer of long ago who said the Church could respond to anything but being ignored missed something. A continued witness, a continued presence is the answer. The moment will come if you wait for it. The Lord did not come into a world where He was warmly welcomed by all; each had to nd a moment of readiness for themselves and each was welcomed at that special time. As for our ministries together? Be ready and respond in love when the moment comes. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an e-mail to fatherthomas@saintmartins-clewiston.org. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 RABIES $10 € PARVO $12 € Half Price Boarding €For a limited timeFREE EXAMA $50 ValuePartners in the Way to Happiness Foundation and a Drug Free World.

Thomas S. Thomas With approximately 600,000 acres of land open to the public, the South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) joins the Florida Department of Environmental Protection in promoting opportunities to celebrate 2013 National Public Lands Day this Saturday. Camping, bird-watching, hiking, hunting and horseback riding are among the most popular activities on District-managed lands. These and other recreational opportunities throughout the District’s 16-county region can be found online at www.sfwmd.gov/recreation. The following are some of the 2013 Recreation Highlights (Fiscal Year 2012-2013). An estimated 10,000 campers utilized District-managed lands. More than 10,000 duck and 300 alligator hunters used Stormwater Treatment Areas in Palm Beach and Hendry counties. More than 1,000 equestrian enthusiasts rode through the Kissimmee area. More than 50 organized-bird watching tours with approximately 1,500 participants in Stormwater Treatment Areas in Palm Beach, Hendry and Martin counties. More than 300 students and teachers participated in educational activities at the DuPuis Management Area visitor center in Martin County. More than 600 people participated in guided nature hikes on the Corkscrew Regional Ecosystem Watershed (CREW) property in Lee and Collier counties. 10,000 hours were logged by volunteers serving as campground hosts, leading bird-watching tours and assisting with trail maintenance, trash cleanups and environmental education. 66 trailhead/parking areas, 50 designated camping areas, 334 miles of trails, and 238 geocaches were added/improved. Each year, the District evaluates opportunities to improve access to public land for recreation. The following are some recent additions. In a partnership with Audubon of Martin County, organized bird-watching tours have recently started at the Lakeside Ranch Stormwater Treatment Area. In cooperation with the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge, staff opened a new 7-mile trail for hiking and bicycling connecting STA-1E and STA-1W. A new multi-use (hiking, biking, horseback riding) public trail was opened on the east side of the Loxahatchee River Management Area property.

But how does a community attract new businesses in the rst place? Reese explains there are many factors that businesses look for when considering whether to locate to a new community, including demographics and city services. Clewiston provides nearly every government service on its own: waste pickup, sewer, water, and electric. And, with the recent installation of a natural gas line, Reese says Clewiston has one more tool to market itself to prospective business. "The introduction of a natural gas line is such an asset," says Reese, explaining that the logistics of hauling propane to an industrial site is expensive. Other services within the community are also important for businesses, particularly recreational services. Reese explains that companies look to see whether or not a community has recreational facilities for their employees. In Clewiston, the boat ramps, the golf course, the city pool and all the city's parks, including the new "Sweetest Town Playground," are all important amenities that businesses consider when looking to locate to a town. Reese says it is important for communities to invest in recreation because it shows potential businesses -both residential and commercial -that the community is viable and thriving. As director of Community Development, it is Reese's job to make sure that businesses have access to the services available in a community and that the codes are enforced. Code enforcement means a business can rest assured that a community will not become blighted, says Reese, and that the failings of one business will not bring down the value of a neighboring business. Failing infrastructure and standards equates to no new businesses, says Reese. Reese gives an example of how the standards of one business transfers to the standards of another: Dollar Tree stores have several different models that can be built in different communities, explains Reese. Clewiston's new Dollar Tree is being built in between First Bank and Burger King and needs to match the quality of the buildings on either side. First Bank's brick facade and Burger King's well-kept concrete facade means Dollar Tree is also being built from concrete, instead of a lower-grade metal. Though the cost of construction is higher, Reese says Dollar Tree, Inc. is happy to be building in a community where standards are high. With so much prospective development, a new business complex is being built in Clewiston and All Juice and Beverage is the rst tenant. Reese says All Juice is already looking to expand its facility; he also expects All Juice to create about a dozen jobs, though, he says, it can be hard to predict and the facility is expected to be opening by the rst of the year. The new Clewiston Commerce Park, and All Juice and Beverage, are located on Olympia Street. Another exciting business prospect is Dunkin Donuts, which is currently negotiating with Royal's to open a store in a vacant building on N. Berner Road. Reese says, however, sometimes negotiations come to fruition and sometimes they don't. A new auto repair shop is also opening in Clewiston. Reese explains that due to the economic downturn of recent years, people are keeping their cars longer and auto repair shops are doing well because of it. Sweetown Cafe, located on Francisco in the old Hungry Howie's building, will be serving up sandwiches and homemade ice cream in the near future. Main Street Subs is opening on Sugarland Highway and will offer hot and cold subs with a drive-thru window. Pizza Hut set it sights on the former Let It Roll location in the Clewiston Town Center on Sugarland Highway, and Reese says it could potentially be opening within 90 days. Opie's Barber Shop will be located at 401 E Sugarland Highway, and is the result of a remodel of an old, dilapidated building, says Reese. Allied Recycling is open and located at 521 E Haiti. Allied Recycling buys scrap metal and aluminum. Equipped with a scale, residents can bring things such as old washing machines, which may be sitting idly in their yard, and sell it at their facility, says Reese. Clewiston Pallets, which manufactures and remanufactures pallets, has been open for about two weeks and is located at 528 E Obispo. There is also a new "rent to own" furniture store currently negotiating to be located in the Clewiston Town Center. Not only is commercial development on the rise in Clewiston, residential development is picking up, as well, according to Reese. Seven new duplexes are currently under construction as part of the Goodwill Project and 10 singlefamily homes are also being built, which Reese says is an uptrend of even two years ago. These new businesses and residences are a sign that the economic climate is changing for the better in America's Sweetest Town, and the Clewiston community can look forward to a few new places to eat, shop and get gussied up when these businesses open their doors in the near future. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Obituaries should be submitted by sending e-mail to obits@newszap.com.

We don't want our kids to have to travel to other places to nd jobs."— Travis Reese U.S. SUGAR CORPORATIONThe U.S. Sugar Corporation began its 83rd annual sugarcane harvesting and processing season at 4 a.m. on Oct. 1, with harvest operations in Palm Beach, Hendry and Glades counties. The Clewiston Sugar Factory began processing the rst railcars of cane at 12 p.m. Both the harvesting and processing operations run 24 hours a day, seven days a week during the sugarcane harvest season, which runs through early April. "We've been ooded both with rainfall and subsidized Mexican sugar," said Judy Sanchez, senior director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs. "The results are both a smaller crop and sugar prices that have dropped 50 percent in the last two years." Sanchez said that U.S. Sugar expects to produce about seven million tons of sugarcane, harvesting approximately 6.54 million tons of sugarcane for processing at the Clewiston Sugar Factory. U.S. Sugar also delivers contracted cane to the Sugar Cane Growers Cooperative of Florida and Florida Crystal's mills. The Clewiston Re nery is projected to produce 14.4 million hundred-weight of re ned sugar (720,000 tons). During the 2012/13 crop, U.S. Sugar produced 7.43 million tons of sugarcane -6.73 million tons of which were processed in Clewiston -yielding approximately 770,000 tons of raw sugar and 40 million gallons of molasses. "The United States has become the favorite dumping ground for unneeded, subsidized Mexican sugar -a signi cant portion produced at government-owned factories," Sanchez said. "Our farms and factory can produce sugar more cheaply and more ef ciently than Mexico, but we cannot compete with Mexican government operations that set records for sugar exports this year." U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art sugar milling and re ning operations make its Clewiston Sugar Factory the world's largest, fully integrated and automated cane sugar processing facility. All of the company's re ned sugar products are marketed by United Sugars, a marketing cooperative that includes U.S. Sugar, beet sugar farmers and processors American Crystal Sugar and MinnDak Farmers Cooperative, located in Minnesota and North Dakota, respectively.

About two and half years after winning the election, former Commissioner Perry applied for another position: city manager for the city of Clewiston. In early April 2013, Perry was named city manager by the Clewiston City Commissioners in a 3-2 vote. Since that day, Perry played dual roles: as county commissioner for district 4 and as the city manager of Clewiston. When Perry took the new job, he did not resign from the Board of County Commissioners. According to Perry, many people asked him not to resign. He said they called his of ce telling him he needed to stay, and Perry himself felt there were things he needed to accomplish before he stepped down as commissioner, including hiring a new county administrator. Holding both roles at the same time, however, is against Florida law. It is a con ict of interest to hold the position of county commissioner, representing speci cally one city and the county as a whole, and managing another city in the same county. According to Perry, however, there were never malicious intentions behind performing both duties at the same time. Perry said he has been stopped in the street by people who criticized him for holding both roles, saying, "Don't you know what you're doing is illegal?" Pressure to do what was legally right eventually won over pressure to please the citizens who still wanted him in of ce as commissioner. Perry asked Kathy Combass, nance specialist for the city of Clewiston, to send a letter of resignation on his behalf to Governor Rick Scott on August 19, saying he would resign at the end of the scal year. Perry said he did not want anyone to be upset with him for holding both positions, as it was illegal, but he also did not want to let down the people who supported him. Perry also said it was a huge time commitment and he did not want anyone to think he was in it for the wrong reasons. Apart from Combass and County Attorney Charles Schoech, Perry said he kept his resignation private, wanting to announce it at his last commission meeting on Sept. 24 -his resignation not taking effect until the end of the scal year on Sept. 30. Between the time his letter of resignation was sent and his last commission meeting, however, Perry came under even more scrutiny as his dual roles were the focus of a news media report, which aired on Sept. 19. At the same time, Perry learned he was being investigated by the State Attorney's Of ce. Proof that Perry had already sent his letter of resignation on August 19 was enough to quell the investigation, and there is now no active investigation against Perry, according to Samantha Syoen, information director for the 20th Judicial Circuit of the State Attorney's Of ce. Though he wanted to complete his entire term as commissioner, having only one year left, he said he is happy he was able to accomplish the things he accomplished before resigning. Perry also said his family is very important to him and he looks forward to spending more time with them. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 561-996-0233Open from 8-4:30 Mon-Fri € 8-12 Sat € Closed Sun Formerly Regional Metals NEW LOCATION NOW OPEN!2308 Cypress Lane Belle Glade, FLRecycling Services:• Aluminum • Appliances • Automobiles • Batteries • Brass • Copper • Cardboard • Steal • Tires • Demolition Services Locations; Main Yard 3350 Metro Pkwy, Fort Myers, FL 33916Paper Products 2998 South St. Ft.

Torres scored again on the extra point, further widening the gap between the Tigers and Vikings. That gap wasn’t going to be closing anytime soon. Right before halftime, Witt made another pass, this time to Tyrin Summers. Summers went on to score, and with the extra point, the score was 42-3. But that wasn’t enough for the Tigers. With 55 seconds left in the half, Lenorris Gaines intercepted a pass for the Vikings, and made it to the end zone, making the score 49-3 by halftime after Torres’s successful extra point attempt. The third quarter brought with it some dire changes. In Jarvirus Bradford’s case, it was the quarter that had him taken out of the game for an injury. By then, though, he had already left his mark on the game, with 122 yards rushed in 6 attempts, more than anyone else that night, not to mention his touchdowns. In the case of the Vikings, their changes came about in how they played. Not too long after the second half began, they increased the intensity with which they played, scoring a touchdown within the rst two minutes of play, and keeping the Tigers’ offense at bay. The team did for a good part of the third quarter. With 5:30 left, Tyrone Washington made a recovery for the Tigers’ game, rushing for yards, and gaining another touchdown. The Vikings again put up some resistance in the nal quarter, but it was too late for them. The two touchdowns scored in this quarter weren’t enough to catch up. The last of cial touchdown of the night for the Tigers was thanks to Markevious Allen. Fred Landrum made it to the end zone again, with 1:20 left in the game, but a ag was called on the play, leaving the Tigers to settle for a 45-point lead this time around. Head Coach Pete Walker was extremely pleased with the Tigers’ performance that night, speaking highly of how it was “well-rounded” and a “great team effort on both sides of the ball.” He also praised quarterback Davis Witt’s improved passing ability, saying he was “on target all night.” Walker went on to praise players such as Jarvirus Bradford, Tyrin Summers, and Lenorris Gaines, saying that they “scored big when we needed it”, and that they all “had a great night”. Head Coach for the Vikings, Phil Dorn, also didn’t hesitate in praising Clewiston’s performance, saying “My hat’s off to Clewiston ... Pete came to Clewiston, and a struggling team, and organized them. They’re a good team, and going to go deep in the playoffs.” Regarding his own team’s performance, Dorn was regretful that his team “made many mistakes in the rst half ... we couldn’t recover.” The Tigers’ next game, against Lake Placid, will take place at Cane Field Stadium on October 18. It’s going to be their second district match of the season, and their nal home game of the season. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 9 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee October 17, 2013 US Sugar Donates to High School AthleticsAs part of the company’s support for local organizations, Judy Sanchez, senior director of Corporate Communications and Public Affairs, presented a $10,000 contribution to Clewiston High School athletics, accepted by Clewiston High School Athletic Director Pete Walker. “This contribution helps the whole athletic program at Clewiston High School.

HENDRY COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICEOn Oct. 9, 31-year-old Timothy Eugene Alexander Jr. was arrested by Lee County Sheriff’s Of ce on a warrant from Hendry County on charges of sexual battery. On the same day, Glades County Sheriff’s Of ce arrested a second subject, 18-yearold Joshua Dale Bryan of Glades County, also, on charges of sexual battery.

She reportedly said she had been forced to have sex with Alexander and Bryan. At the end of the evening, the party bus parked at a private residence in Hendry County, where the passengers got off the bus and began to socialize in the yard and in the home. After nearly everyone had left the bus, the 16-year-old victim and Bryan were left on the bus alone, according to the arrest report. Alexander, who had also remained on the bus, approached the victim and reportedly had forcible sex with the 16-year-old, the report continues.

Clewiston Police were called to the Hess Gas Station around 11:30 p.m. -near the station’s closing time -after an employee called to report that a man was hanging around the store and the employee was “afraid to leave.” Of cer Jackie Garrett arrived at the gas station and found Clyde Matthews, 31, of Greenacres, talking to the employee at the service window. Of cer Garrett approached Matthews and searched him for weapons after Matthews recounted a ght he had just gotten into at a residence in Clewiston, according to the report. Of cer Garrett found no weapons on Matthews, however, when communications came back with an active warrant for Matthews out of Palm Beach County for violation of probation for attempted homicide and armed car jacking, the situation escalated. Of cer Garrett pulled out his weapon and ordered Matthews to the ground while he called for backup. According to the report, Matthews said, “I’m not getting on the ground and I’m not going to jail.” When Of cer Garrett yelled for Matthews to get on the ground a second time, Matthews took off running. Of cer Garrett pursued on foot, notifying other units to set up a perimeter and to watch for a man wearing jean shorts and a red and black striped shirt. Responding Of cer Jose Rojas spotted Matthews, who had stripped his striped shirt and now donned a simple white t-shirt, in the 500 block of E Sagamore, according to the report. Unable to apprehend Matthews on E Sagamore, Of cer Garrett was next to spot Matthews running in between houses and jumping over fences. Of cer Garrett released his canine partner, Javier, who pursued Matthews and eventually caught up with him as he hid underneath a house in the 400 block of Ventura Ave. When Of cer Garrett approached the house, he called to Matthews, warning him to come out or be bit. Three warnings later, Javier was deployed and caught Matthews on the left calf, according to the report. Of cer Garrett watched as Javier attempted to apprehend Matthews and saw, according to the report, Matthews allegedly hitting Javier with a small, silver object. Of cer Garrett was eventually able to grab Matthews and get him to the ground, after Javier pulled him from underneath the house, and saw that Matthews held a silver nail clipper in his hand, according to the report.
