BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsWith paddle in hand, attendees of the community quarter auction meandered slowly past tables, admiring the wares and making note of their favorite prizes. Hosted by the Clewiston Elks Lodge on Aug. 27, the venue proved perfect for sipping on cocktails and nibbling on nger foods. Once the allotted time for ogling was up, attendees were left to place their bets. One quarter here, two quarters there; the chance to win an item worth anywhere from $10 to $150, all for a few quarters. A chip was pulled and the matching paddle -had that paddle placed its bet on the item -was declared the winner. And so it went until all vendors had shown their goods, and all winners came up happy. The Community Quarter Auction, an event put on for the rst time in Clewiston by resident Jessica Moore, is a way for local charities to raise money. Moore explains that the auctions help "everyone in the community": The vendors who participate in the auction grow because they are given an opportunity to market themselves and their products to a large group of people at one time; those who attend the auction bene t, because they are able to purchase items for mere quarters -should they win; and the charities bene t because the auction raises much needed funds for them. Moore explains that the quarter auction is not a live auction, where everyone is bidding against one another; instead, it is more like the lottery. Moore also says all the money raised goes to the charity the auction is bene ting, including the money it costs to buy a paddle ($2), the money vendors pay to participate in the event and the money paid in to the 50/50 raf e -another feature of the auction. The rst quarter auction, which bene ted a local girl who was diagnosed with Lupus, helped raise $760 for her and the Purple Wings team, a nonpro t dedicated to nding the cause and cure for Lupus. Moore says she started the quarter auctions for the community and is BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsThe students of Clewiston High School's Criminal Justice class were taken aback when Mayor Phillip Roland interrupted a presentation on a proposed veteran's memorial at the City Commission Workshop on Oct. 17. The students were showing the city commissioners three different blueprints for an idea one year in the making: a new Veteran's Memorial to be erected in Clewiston's Civic Park. The memorial would represent the different categories of the military, as well as law enforcement of cers, EMT and re ghters on a 25x25 piece of land with cement seating surrounding. The students would raise the money for the memorial, and asked the commission only for a piece of land on which to build it.

This year-round Florida resident species breeds in Florida mainly in the winter, but edglings have been reported between October and June. During the 2011-2016 Breeding Bird Atlas II survey, only four Great Horned Owls have been con rmed breeding in inland Florida. Volunteers are needed to report sightings in inland Florida in order to help con rm this breeding bird before the survey ends in 2016. Please send photos, location, behavior observed and date of Great Horned Owls sightings to Margaret England (mlelighthouse@embarqmail.com). The location will help determine which 11 square-mile block to use for reporting this data. The exact location can be kept con dential. Go to the Florida Ornithological Society's website for links to information about the Breeding Bird Atlas II. The Great Horned Owl, Florida's largest owl, is a erce nocturnal hunter which has been described as a "winged tiger" or a "lean mean killing machine." It is known for putting fear in birds and mammals alike because of its reputation for eating any living creature up to the size of skunks or domestic cats. It is often harassed by ocks of American Crows who will travel long distances to mob a Great Horned Owl and yell at them for hours. They utilize a variety of habitats, including open oak forests, open pinelands and river bottoms. At dusk, you can see them sitting on fence posts or tree limbs at the edges of open areas or ying across roads or elds with stiff, deep beats of their rounded wings. This often solitary bird has a grayish upper side and a tawny-orange face with prominent ear tufts, which are widely spaced on its head. They have large eyes and can swivel their heads more than 180 degrees to look in any direction. The oldest recorded Great Horned Owl live to be 28 years old. Its call is usually a deep muf ed stuttering series of four or ve "hooh, HOOhoo-hoo" notes. Females will answer males with a nasal barking sound, while juveniles beg with a wheezy or scratchy bark. They respond to intruders and other threats with bill-clapping, hisses, screams and guttural noises. They eventually spread their wings and strike with their feet if the threat escalates. Although they are capable of building their own nests, the Great Horned Owl will often use an abandoned nest where the female will typically incubate two white eggs for 26 to 35 days. The young will leave the nest at 35 days of age, but are dependent upon their parents for food until they are able to y at nine to 10 weeks of age. Additional information about Great Horned Owls and other bird species are available at www.allaboutbirds. com or the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation's website. Plan a birding trip using the free tools at the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail website: oridabirdingtrail.com.

My purpose in this article isn't to make a statement about how we should or shouldn't feel about Halloween, rather to encourage us all to nd "common ground" with unbelievers and use Oct. 31 as a way to help share Christ. God calls us to be faithful and to make a difference. We don't have to do great things. Little things we do can make a big impact. There are times in our lives when we have opportunities to reach out and touch people in a special way. Halloween can be one such opportunity. One of the biggest problems we face is that Halloween today has become strongly associated with the occult and a preoccupation with evil entities two in uences that Scripture and the church have always warned against. This makes it even more important for us to shine in the midst of the darkness that surrounds us. There was a man in the neighborhood where I grew up who made snow cones every Halloween for all of us trick-or-treaters. I remember him. More than that, I remember how special he made each of us feel. It inspired within me a desire to one day, if at all possible, to do what he did -to make and hand out snow cones on Halloween, to make good memories by touching the hearts of children and youth in special ways. (God has blessed me to be able to do this, and I will be handing out snow cones on Oct. 31 at First United Methodist Church of Clewiston from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at our Light the Night for Jesus Halloween alternative. Stop by if you're in the neighborhood!) As kids come to your door, let them see His light in you. Don't give in to the world, but be in the world with the Christ light shining through you. Don't hide it under a bushel, but hold it up to the world as a living witness for our living God. It is the combined wattage of many lights, each shining in its own place, but for a common purpose that illuminates a city in the midst of the darkness of night. Someone shared that being a Christian is like being a pumpkin, "God picks you from the patch, brings you in and washes all the dirt off of you. Then, He cuts off the top and scoops out all the yucky stuff. He removes the seeds of doubt, hate, greed, etc., and then carves you a new smiling face and puts His light inside of you to shine for the entire world to see." RELIGION NEWS AND INFORMATION

Led by HHS, the network supplements the capacity that in uenza vaccine manufacturers currently have, potentially increasing national capacity to produce in uenza vaccine by 20 percent. The Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), in HHS’ Of ce of the Assistant Secretary for Preparedness and Response, awarded contracts to four U.S. companies that will make up the network. Today’s contracts, totaling approximately $39.8 million, are awarded to Cook Pharmica of Bloomington, Ind., JHP Pharmaceuticals of Parsippany, N.J., DSM Pharmaceuticals, Inc. of Greenville, N.C., and Nanotherapeutics of Alachua, Fla. “No longer will ll and nish manufacturing be the limiting factor in making pandemic in uenza vaccines or other products available in a public health emergency,” said BARDA Director Robin Robinson, Ph.D. “The ll and nish manufacturing network will be an integral part of other national assets that address the need for timely manufacturing of medical countermeasures to respond to man-made and natural threats.” The new network responds to a recommendation proposed by the Public Health Medical Countermeasure Enterprise Review (2010) to create a network of existing, pre-quali ed facilities that could ll and nish vaccines for manufacturers in a public health emergency. As a network, these companies will collaborate with the three HHS Centers for Innovation in Advanced Development and Manufacturing, established in 2012, and with domestic in uenza vaccine manufacturers. In addition the network will provide its services to HHS for production of clinical investigational lots of medical countermeasures that are in development. Each company in the network will partner with a pandemic in uenza vaccine manufacturer to transfer the ll and nish technology into its existing facilities to provide surge capacity for pandemic response. The expanded ll and nish manufacturing network also could provide these core services for manufacturers of drugs and vaccines intended to protect public health against chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear threats. The network builds on BARDA’s public-private partnership model to provide a coordinated national medical countermeasure manufacturing infrastructure and exempli es BARDA’s core service assistance approach towards a comprehensive, integrated plan for advanced research and development, innovation, acquisition, and manufacturing of vaccines, drugs, therapeutics, diagnostic tools and non-pharmaceutical products for public health emergency threats. These threats include chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents, pandemic in uenza and emerging infectious diseases. HHS is the principal federal agency for protecting the health of all Americans and providing essential human services, especially for those who are least able to help themselves. ASPR leads HHS in preparing the nation to respond to and recover from adverse health effects of emergencies, supporting communities’ ability to withstand adversity, strengthening health and response systems, and enhancing national health security.

Childcare of Southwest Florida is the region’s leading child care resource. It was established in 1967 as a private, nonpro t organization and is led by a volunteer board of directors. Money raised at the celebrity dinner and auction helps to support the children in the community with scholarships for childcare. Brenda Barnes was one of the “celebrity waiters” at the event. She was dressed up as “Cousin Minnie Pearl.” The Hendry County table theme was “The Grand Ole Opry.” Hendry County Commissioner Janet Taylor and Property Appraiser Phil Pelletier were also there to represent Hendry County. The event was held on Oct. 5 at the Harborside Event Center in Downtown Fort Myers (River District). Other “table themes” included Duck Dynasty, Wizard of Oz, Ace Ventura (Jim Carey), Forrest Gump, Sonny and Cher, Blues Brothers, a Mad-Scientist and even Elvis!

A-1: How it Works With the capacity to hold 60,000 acre-feet of water at a site west of U.S. 27, the A-1 Flow Equalization Basin (FEB) is designed to capture and store peak stormwater ows during the wet season or heavy rainfall events. Along with providing signi cant storage, emergent vegetation, such as bulrush and cattail planted within the site, will help reduce the concentration of phosphorus in the water. Location A system of 21 miles of earthen levees and 15 water control structures will allow water managers to move water south for treatment. This provides the steady ow necessary to optimize the performance of Stormwater Treatment Areas (STAs) 2 and 3/4 just to the south at the Palm Beach/Broward county line. Stormwater Treatment Areas are constructed wetlands that serve as the water-cleaning workhorses of Everglades restoration, using both emergent and submerged aquatic vegetation, such as hydrilla, to naturally remove nutrients from the water that eventually ows to Everglades National Park. The District operates a network of ve STAs south of Lake Okeechobee with an effective treatment area of 57,000 acres. Since 1994, the treatment areas have retained more than 1,707 metric tons of total phosphorus that would have otherwise entered the Everglades. The A-1 FEB will utilize signi cant work already completed at the site for a reservoir originally planned to provide deep water storage, known as the EAA Reservoir. All of the material excavated for the reservoir will be utilized to build new levees, and existing canals have been incorporated into the new plan. Restoration Strategies In June 2012, the state of Florida and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency reached a consensus on new strategies for improving water quality in America’s Everglades. Based on months of scienti c and technical discussions, these strategies will expand water quality improvement projects to achieve the ultra-low phosphorus water quality standard established for the Everglades. The following are some of the key features of the plan: Design and construction of 110,000 acre-feet of additional storage adjacent to existing Everglades STAs, which will better control water ow into the treatment wetlands, thereby improving their performance. These storage areas, known as Flow Equalization Basins, will be designed to assist all ve Everglades STAs. Design and construction of the Stormwater Treatment Area 1 West expansion, increasing by 50 percent the treatment capacity of water quality facilities currently discharging into the Arthur R. Marshall Loxahatchee National Wildlife Refuge. Additional sub-regional source controls in areas of the eastern EAA where phosphorus levels in runoff have been historically higher, building on the District’s existing Best Management Practices (BMPs) Regulatory Program. Construction on Project to Improve EvergladesA-1 shallow-water reservoir is second major effort underway in Governor’s Restoration Strategies plan

At the very rst quarter auction, Moore says she was “shocked” at how many people attended. “Clewiston is such a tight community, I just posted it on Facebook and I was shocked, about 150 people showed up,” says Moore. Moore says she expects more people to come to the next quarter auction, being held on Oct. 24; and if the event does start getting bigger, she will either look for a bigger venue or require an RSVP. The quarter auction on Oct. 24 will be bene ting the Christopher Lowe Scholarship, which seeks to raise money for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, a nonpro t organization dedicated to funding blood cancer research. The event will be held at the Clewiston Elks Lodge and begins at 6:30 p.m., with drinks and food available for purchase. Moore says she plans on continuing the quarter auctions, so long as she has a location and vendors who are willing to participate. The next auction, after the Oct. 24 event, will be bene ting the Boy Scouts of America. Moore also says that anyone can contact her about becoming the bene ciary for these auctions, as long as they show her where the money will be going. Moore can be contacted at 863233-6300. QuartersContinued From Page 1 “Clewiston is such a tight community, I just posted it on Faceboo k and I was shocked, about 150 people showed up.”— Moore he knew nothing about it beforehand. “I knew nothing about this. I don’t know where you’re planning on doing it, I don’t know which commissioner has been involved up here, and I don’t think it’s right, Bubba, that you would set aside an area for them to go do in and not run it by the commission,” began Mayor Roland, chastising Clewiston Recreation Director Lance (Bubba) Ramer for not consulting the commission before giving up a piece of land for the memorial. The Mayor continued, “And I know that I’m being mean right now, but I don’t like to be hit with something of this magnitude and not know anything about it. ... And I don’t mean to make anybody uncomfortable, except I’m uncomfortable. And if I’m unconfortable, excuse me, I’m going to make somebody else uncomfortable.” Kristine Petersen, advisor for the Criminal Justice program, apologized for not informing the commission before that night, while Clewiston resident Laura Smith came to Ramer’s defense, saying she had approached Ramer on an “informal basis” to ask where a good location for the memorial would be. She said Ramer offered the suggestion of Civic Park, and the conversation was not meant to “blindside the commission.” Commissioner Mali Gardner said the idea of a veteran’s memorial was mentioned to her last year and she gave her full support then and now. Commissioner Gardner also said Clewiston’s Civic Park is “our crown jewel” and there would be no better place to build a veteran’s memorial. The “uncomfortable” conversation ended with Commissioner James Pittman suggesting the students aim to build the most expensive option, which would cost $37,000, as the students have a few months to raise funds before any construction begins. He also called the memorial a “great idea” and that it should go in the “premiere, prime spot in Civic Park.” Though the conversation died at the Commission Workshop, it was again revived at the regular City Commission Meeting on Oct. 21, with Tammy Bunting, mother of the Criminal Justice Program’s Secretary Jessica Bunting, speaking to the commission on behalf of the students. Bunting said she moved her family to Clewiston from the Belle Glade area so her children would have the opportunity for a better education and positive programs. She said the students came home from the Oct. 17 meeting “very upset,” and she was “deeply disappointed with how the presentation was treated.” Mayor Roland responded to Bunting. “I wouldn’t have reacted the way I did if things weren’t having to be done on Thursday night,” he said, insinuating that decisions are not made at commission workshops, merely discusssed. The Mayor also said there was a “communications breakdown,” that the presentation was a learning process for the students, but it “shouldn’t have been at their expense.” Before Bunting returned to her seat, she said she was “very disappointed that that was their [the students] rst experience with local government.” Though, the “communications breakdown” may have soured the relationship between the Mayor and the students, the commission voted 5-0 in favor of allowing the students to build a veteran’s memorial in Civic Park. As part of their regular meeting, commissioners also voted 5-0 in favor of opening the city’s mosquito control contract up for bid, and voted 5-0 to accept the Southwest Florida Community Foundation Grant Acceptance, which awarded the Hendry County library system with $50,000 for new programs and expanded services.

Further information will be released after a complete and thorough investigation is conducted, which may take several weeks, according to the press release. Update: The Clewiston Police Department says the victim is now in fair condition at Lee Memorial Hospital, as of Oct. 23. InjuryContinued From Page 1 BY BUTCH WILSON e Clewiston MuseumMost Floridians who are 60-plus years of age can remember a parent’s idle threat, “I am sending you to Chattahoochee,” when one‘s misbehavior became intolerable. It was also verbally rehearsed whenever an acquaintance crossed those invisible lines that society deemed taboo. This famous phrase became culturally engrained in Florida’s heritage because folks knew a person declared mentally incompetent was sent to the state hospital in Chattahoochee, Fla. Mental health treatment in the early 19th century could be comparable to treatment in the Dark Ages. Medical science was very backward, so the antiquated methods used to nurse a patient back to health oftentimes plummeted the patient into the twilight zone. Needless to say, no healthy mind yearned for a vacation at the Florida State Mental Hospital in Chattahoochee. On Oct. 24 at 7 p.m., the Clewiston Museum will be hosting Sally Ling, author and historian, at its upcoming Annual Meeting. Sally Ling’s presentation is based on her book, “Out of Mind, Out of Sight.” She will provide a revealing and accurate account of the mental health treatment in early 19th century Florida, with special attention to the Florida State Hospital at Chattahoochee. Mrs. Ling’s presentation is an enlightening but somber one, as she reveals the chilling fact that thousands of men and women who were not mentally ill were con ned at Florida’s notorious State Mental Hospital in Chattahoochee. This free, informative program will be presented at the Clewiston Museum’s Annual Meeting. Complimentary refreshments will be provided after the program, including wine, cheese, hors d’oeuvres and tasty desserts. It’s a wonderful evening at the museum that can ill afford to be missed -a neighbor or friend might think you were crazy for not coming and you know what that means. Join the Museum on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. Out of Sight, Out of MindPresentation at the Clewiston Museum takes a look at the history of the Chattahoochee BY JOSE JESUS ZARAGOZA e Clewiston NewsOn Nov. 2 at the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Center, Veronica Mila will be showcasing talent from around the Glades for a program entitled “Clash of the Arts: Fashion and Talent Showcase.” The event is the rst of its kind for Ms. Mila, a Belle Glade native who recently dedicated herself to pursuing a career in fashion. The event got its start in an unlikely way. On Feb. 1, 2012, one day after her 28th birthday, Veronica was involved in a serious accident. A semi truck collided with the vehicle she was driving near the Sugar Co-op in Belle Glade. The accident left her in bad shape: she suffered fractures and lacerations on her hands and feet, required back surgery and underwent months of recovery. Pictures of the accident show her car twisted and mangled in a scene that is surprising to learn anyone survived from. That was the moment Veronica, who previously worked at the Workforce Alliance, considered going back to her old life or nally pursuing her dream of fashion design. “That was a real eye-opener in my life,” said Veronica. “During the time I was in a wheelchair for four months, I decided this was something that I really wanted to do.” The event next weekend is the culmination of her efforts. Asking her friends on Facebook if they would be interested in a small fashion event, Veronica said the response was overwhelming and she quickly took a nugget of an idea and turned it into something bigger. Not only would she create a space to showcase her own fashion, but she would involve more people from around the area to showcase their own talents. Now, she has a stable of 14 entertainers ranging from everything from singers to comedians and dancers and more. Being from the Glades meant Veronica knew plenty of local acts deserving of much-needed attention. “We have so much talent out here in the Glades area and no one is aware,” said Veronica Mila. “This is a way to showcase that. This is the reason that I’m doing this.” According to Veronica, the community has been “very supportive” of the effort. Because the event is a chance for the entertainers being featured to demonstrate their talents, many of them have been helping to spread the word. Since launching the idea in earnest, Veronica herself has been hard at work. “I didn’t want to just throw something together,” she said. “I want this to be professional and diverse, for every type of person in the crowd. Every day I’m pushing it.” The Clash of the Arts event, which is being presented by Veronica Mila Clothing, will open its doors at 5 p.m. for a meet and greet with designers and the community. The show is scheduled to begin at 7 p.m. For a full list of entertainers and show schedule, be sure to follow the event on Facebook at the Clash of the Arts Fashion and Talent Showcase.
