BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsHendry County Library Director Ava Barrett stood beaming in the lobby of the Clewiston Library on Nov. 4 as she was handed a check for $50,000 from the Southwest Florida Community Foundation Center. Barrett accepted the check on behalf of the Hendry County Library System, one of several nonpro t organizations that received a portion of the $440,000 in funds raised by the Community Foundation for their Community Impact Grants. The Community Foundation is a nonpro t organization that provides a platform for donors to contribute to causes in their community through donations.

The Cowboys started with the ball and wouldn't part with it easily. The Tigers' defense tried to keep them back, but the Cowboys inched closer and closer to the end zone. With ve yards to go and ve minutes left in the quarter, the Cowboy's Danny Robinson pushed his way through the Tigers' defense to score the rst touchdown of the night. After the extra point, the Cowboys were up 7-0. The Tigers wasted no time responding. Not even a minute after they had the ball, Davis Witt completed a scoring 47-yard pass to Derrick Jackson and Brandon Torres delivered on the extra point attempt, evening the score. Neither team seemed willing to concede defeat this early. The Cowboys were in control of the second quarter. With 10:50 to go in the rst half, the Cowboy's Jerome Baxter slipped past the Tigers to score on a 28-yard run. The extra point was no good, leaving the score 13-7.

BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department of HealthWe all want out children to be healthy, so let’s take the time to encourage children in our communities to develop healthy habits that can last a lifetime. Try to make smarter choices by consuming healthier foods like vegetables, fruits, whole grains, fat-free and low-fat dairy products and seafood. Also, try to consume less sodium, saturated and trans-fats, added sugars and re ned grains. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), obesity now affects 17 percent of all children and adolescents in the U.S., which is triple the rate from just one generation ago. Lifestyles of today’s generation are linked to increases in overweight and obese kids. Some of these lifestyles include the following: Access to “fast food” -it’s quick, cheap and easy. Using electronic gadgets -they contribute to our children’s lack of exercise. Constant advertisements -children are constantly bombarded with advertising for sugar and high fat foods. Changes in school lunches -school lunch choices are not as healthy as they used to be. Many vending machines in schools sell unhealthy snacks and sodas (but this is slowly changing). Lack of physical education in schools -programs such as P.E. are limited due to increased budget cuts and concentration on FCAT scores. Less “play-time” outside -Children don’t play outside like they did years ago due to safety concerns. Childhood obesity can have a harmful effects on the body in a variety of ways. Obese children are more likely to have some of the following. Health risks now: High blood pressure and high cholesterol, which are risk factors for cardiovascular disease (CVD). Increased risk of Type 2 diabetes. Breathing problems, such as sleep apnea and asthma. Joint problems and musculoskeletal discomfort. Fatty liver disease, gallstones and gastro-esophageal re ux (heartburn, “puke-burps”). Obese children and adolescents have a greater risk of social and psychological problems, such as discrimination and poor self-esteem, which can continue into adulthood. Health risks later: Obese children are more likely to become obese adults. Adult obesity is associated with a number of serious health conditions, including heart disease, diabetes and some cancers. If children are overweight, obesity in adulthood is likely to be more severe. Recommendations by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) include: Children under the age of two should be allowed no “screen viewing time” (this includes TVs, computers, portable players, etc.) Children under the age of two should not be given fruit juice, which has high concentrated levels of sugar. Children should not be given avored waters and arti cially sweetened drinks. Children should not be given snacks prior to their meals. For more information about healthier eating and the prevention of childhood obesity, please visit the CDC website at http://www.cdc.gov/obesity/ childhood/. 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 November 7, 2013 BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department of HealthDiabetes is a disease where the body is unable to produce insulin or when the body does not use insulin properly. Insulin is a hormone that your body needs to convert sugar, starches and other foods into energy. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 25 million people in the U.S. have diabetes, and diabetes is the seventh leading cause of death in the United States. When a person has diabetes, they also have an increased risk of heart attack, stroke, kidney disease or blindness. There is no known cure for diabetes, but there is treatment. Some of the signs of diabetes can include excessive thirst, extreme hunger, unusual weight loss, increased tiredness, increased irritability and blurry vision. Sometimes family history plays a part in whether a person develops diabetes, but other factors, such as being over weight or a lack of exercise, appear to play a role, as well. Diet, exercise and new medicines can prevent or delay much of the illness and complications of diabetes. Remember to keep an eye on your eyes. In the United States, diabetic eye disease is the leading cause of vision loss among working-aged adults. Diabetic retinopathy is the most common form of this disease and affects about 28.5 percent of Americans with diabetes aged 40 and older. The condition can creep up quietly. It gradually weakens small blood vessels in and around the retina, the lightsensing layer of tissue at the back of the eye. If the disease progresses, these vessels may rupture and leak blood into the eye; they can also spread and grow on the surface of the retina and cause scarring. The good news is that with early detection, timely treatment and appropriate followup, the risk of severe vision loss from diabetic retinopathy can be reduced by 95 percent. A comprehensive dilated eye exam can catch diabetic eye disease early, before symptoms appear. November is National Diabetes Awareness Month. If you have diabetes, it’s a good time to remember the following health tips: Get a comprehensive dilated eye exam at least once a year. Control your blood sugar, blood pressure and cholesterol levels. By controlling your diabetes, you’ll reduce your risk of diabetic eye disease. Talk to your eye care professional about diabetic retinopathy. Hendry Regional Medical Center offers monthly diabetes education and prevention classes.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 7, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe United States’ national emblem, the Bald Eagle, was once threatened with extinction. Through reintroduction efforts, habitat management and protection under the Endangered Species Act, Bald Eagles have made a remarkable recovery. Some Eagles are year-round Florida residents, however, many head north in the spring and return in the fall to nest. Florida has the third largest breeding population of Bald Eagles in the continental United States, following Alaska and Minnesota. It is estimated that there are more than 1,100 breeding pairs of Bald Eagles in Florida. The adult Bald Eagle is a large raptor with brown plumage and a white head. They have a long, white, slightly wedge-shaped tail. This magni cent bird is not actually bald. Bald is derived from an older meaning of the word “piebald,” which means white-headed. Its large hooked beak and feet are bright yellow, its legs are featherless and its toes are short with large powerful talons. Immature Bald Eagles have mostly dark heads and tails, and their brown wings and bodies are mottled with varying amounts of white. The young birds attain their adult plumage when they are about ve years old. The oldest recorded Bald Eagle in the wild lived to be 28 years old. The Bald Eagle’s vocalization is a high-pitched whistling or piping sound. These birds are opportunistic foragers feeding on a wide variety of prey, including sh, birds, reptiles, invertebrates, small animals and carrion. They are often seen hunting near water, roadways or land lls. They will sometimes gorge themselves by eating a large amount of food and digesting it over several days. Bald Eagles can also survive by fasting for many days or even weeks. All Bald Eagle nest trees are protected by state and federal laws. The recommended protection buffer is 660 feet and no activity is permitted within 330 feet of a nest during the nesting season, which lasts from Oct. 1 to May 15, or when eagles are present at the nest site. These birds are extremely territorial when nesting. Huge nests of branches and twigs are usually built in a tall pine tree, cypress tree or occasionally in a hardwood tree located near fresh or salt water. The nest may remain active for 15 or more years. The nest is often lined with fresh moss, grasses and leaves. Normally, two bluish-green eggs are laid and are incubated for 32 to 34 days. The young edge at 10 to 12 weeks, however, juveniles are dependent on their parents for another six weeks after edging. Watch the sky for these powerful yers soaring and gliding overhead; Eagles are being reported returning to their nests in inland Florida. The young Eagles “Hope” and “Honor” have returned with their parents “Ozzie” and “Harriet” to north Ft. Myers. Thousands of online viewers watched these Eagles during last year’s nesting season on the Southwest Florida Eagle Cam website and Facebook page.

When we re ect on the honor and heroism of our soldiers, we are confronted with the sacri ces they made, as well as our response to those sacri ces. The whole concept of anyone making sacri ces for us, much less being willing to die for us, sometimes makes us uneasy. Confronting their heroism forces us to stop and examine our own lives. Why did they do what they did? What cause is worth dying for? Would we be willing to do the same? Celebrities are people who make news, heroes are people who make history. The qualities of heroism are eternal -self-sacri ce, courage, honor, duty. A man who served in the Navy during World War II shared that one night he was running his transport across the Atlantic when he noticed the white trail of a torpedo coming toward him. His ship was lled with hundreds of soldiers and the potential loss of life would have been devastating. Nearby, a smaller ship had also seen the torpedo coming. The captain of the smaller vessel maneuvered his ship between the transport and the torpedo. The explosion destroyed his ship, killing all those on board. The man who told this story ended it by saying, “The skipper of that other ship was my best friend.” Slowly, he remarked, “You know, there is a verse in the Bible which has special meaning for me now. It is this, ‘Greater love has no one than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.’” What kind of love would give itself up for another? What kind of love would be willing to die for you and me? It’s the love that Jesus demonstrated to show us how much we mean to God. It’s the love we celebrate today in the example of soldiers who sacri ced and sometimes even died for our freedom. In India there is a cemetery where the bodies of American soldiers are buried. Over the entrance to the cemetery are these words, “Tell Them We Gave Our Todays for Their Tomorrows.” Let us never forget that our todays were bought with a price. Someone had to pay with their service and sometimes with their lives yesterday, so we might be free today. To all of our veterans: A national holiday is hardly enough to show you our gratitude and respect. There is no way we can suf ciently say, “Thank you.” We can’t undo anything you’ve been through, but we can do what the Bible tells us to do -pray for you and love you and honor your sacri ces. 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Ajay Kalra, MD, FACSEndovascular, Vascular & General Surgery Anthony J.

The South Florida Water Management District (SFWMD) has approved 14 funding partnerships for alternative water supply and water conservation projects in the coming year. The District will invest close to $600,000 for these efforts through its Alternative Water Supply (AWS) Program and Water Savings Incentive Program (WaterSIP). “Partnerships that support conservation efforts and alternative supplies are important to meeting South Florida’s future water needs,” said SFWMD Governing Board Chairman Daniel O’Keefe. “Because droughts are inevitable, we are continuously seeking opportunities to develop sustainable water sources.” Created 10 years ago, WaterSIP provides matching funds to public and private water providers or to large users to implement water-saving technologies. In the rst decade of the program, the District invested approximately $4.6 million in 161 projects throughout the agency’s 16-county region. These projects together have saved an estimated 2.67 billion gallons of water per year, or 7.3 million gallons of water per day. From 1997 to 2013, the AWS Funding Program, in cooperation with the state of Florida, has invested more than $190 million in 482 alternative water supply projects. To date, these projects have created 436 million gallons a day of water supply capacity, reducing reliance on freshwater sources. The District is investing in the following alternative water supply projects: city of St. Cloud (Hickory Tree 24-inch Reclaimed Water Main Extension), city of Delray Beach (Reclaimed Water System Area 12A Phase II), city of LaBelle (1.5 MGD Reverse Osmosis Membrane Plant, Phase 2). Alternative water sources diversify South Florida’s water supply while reducing the region’s dependence on traditional freshwater resources and improving a community’s ability to withstand drought impacts. Examples of alternative water supplies include: salt water and brackish water, reclaimed water, surface water captured during wet weather, sources made available through new storage, stormwater (for consumptive use). Development of alternative water supplies is an important component of the District’s regional water supply plans. Updated every ve years, the plans create a framework for future water use decisions and establish strategies to meet future water demands. More information on alternative water supplies in South Florida is available at www.sfwmd.gov/AWS.

The Hendry County Library System was fortunate enough to receive one of the Community Foundation's impact grants and Director Barrett has big plans for the money. The Clewiston Library's back area will be remodeled into a large computer area, which will be equipped with new machines and up-to-date software. The walls that currently separate three small computer rooms will be knocked down and a classroom will be built in its place. Within the new classroom, instructors will teach classes and programs, offered on account of the Community Foundation's impact grant. Beginners, and eventually intermediate, keyboarding classes will be offered, as well as a cake decorating class beginning this Thursday. English as a Second Language classes have already begun and nearly 20 participants are attending the class. Barrett said the library will be partnering with Clewiston High School honor students who are interested in tutoring other students in need of extra help; the library will also be partnering with Goodwill, Inc. and Florida Gulf Coast University's Small Business Development Center to assist people through the process of acquiring their GED. Barrett emphasized that these programs will be offered at each of the Hendry County libraries, including the Clewiston Library, the LaBelle Free Public Library and Harlem Community Library. With all the great programs that will soon be offered and the makeover the Clewiston Library will be receiving, it may be surprising to learn that Barrett and her staff only began working towards the grant this past April; even then, Barrett said she and her staff only knew they wanted to do something to help the community through the library, they did not yet have a concrete vision. "It started out of frustration," said Barrett, who continued with the story of a woman who became frustrated while searching for jobs at the Clewiston Library. The woman went to Barrett to "vent her frustration" about the lack of programs offered in the community to help unemployed and underemployed residents. Barrett responded with "Let's do something about it!" Barrett and her new collaborator began drafting a grant proposal and City Commissioner Mali Gardner put them in contact with the Community Foundation. Barrett explained that once they established the connection with the Community Foundation, their ideas began to take "focus" and everything "fell into place." "It felt as if this was supposed to happen," said Barrett. "I'm really hoping it has an impact on the community. ... It may be just a small dent in the circumstances of the people it is trying to help, but there is a verse in the Bible that says, Do not despise the day of small beginnings.'" The small beginnings created by the $50,000 grant arose through the help of many people, said Barrett, including Janet Papinaw, director of Hendry County Grants and Special Projects, who helped review the grant application before it was submitted to the Community Foundation. Barrett could not hide her enthusiasm as she spoke about the possibilities of the new grant. "I hope it will grow and pick up momentum to help someone somewhere," said Barrett. GrantContinued From Page 1 yard pass to Jorge Betancourt for the Cowboy's third and nal touchdown of the night. Their extra point attempt was good this time around, leaving the score 20-7. Thirteen points. Not the biggest gap to close, but a normal team might have been intimidated, or slacked off in how they played. But, as the Tigers have proven time and again this season, they are no normal team. The Tigers started the half off with the ball in their hands and it didn't take long for Witt to complete another excellent pass, this time to Tyrin Summers, good for a 68-yard touchdown. They couldn't get the extra point, but they were getting closer to catching up to the Cowboys. With four minutes left in the quarter, Derry West muscled his way past the Cowboys' defense, gaining the four yards necessary to score. After the extra point, both teams had 20 points on the board. The Tigers had caught up, and all that was left was to take the lead. That task proved much easier said than done. Neither team let the other hold onto the ball for long in the fourth quarter. It was a back-and-forth of turnovers, and the game went into overtime. Both teams would get a chance to score from the 10-yard line and the Tigers were up rst. Witt made another scoring pass to Jackson, and Torres scored another extra point, putting them in the lead. It was LaBelle's turn now and scoring would prove to be much more dif cult for them. They tried running the ball, but to no avail. The Tigers' defense overwhelmed them. The Cowboys had been pushed back three yards and in their nal attempt at scoring, passed. Any chance they had at evening the score was blown by Angelo Tolbert's last-minute interception. Chris Siner, head coach for LaBelle, was glad that it was "a great effort on both sides," but was regretful that the Cowboys "were tired in the second half, especially since we were so good in the rst half." Nonetheless, Siner is hopeful that the Cowboys will "bounce back" from this loss. Regarding the Tigers' recovery in the second half, Head Coach Pete Walker said "we're proud of [the Tigers] for ghting back, and how [they] hung in there. Not a lot of teams would have done that. We were glad that there was a lot of good blocking and running going on. "And we're very proud of [them] for giving us a home playoff match. We're also grateful to our fans, for supporting us all the way. Without them, we wouldn't be here." The Tigers' next game will be at Okeechobee High School on Nov. 8. TigersContinued From Page 1

Triumphant slave hunters with smiles of anticipation moved hurriedly to the dog’s baying, while a lone black slave, crouching like a hunted animal, watched miserably as dog and hunters descended upon his hiding place. Moments later, a bruised and dejected slave with iron fetters about his feet was dragged from the heavily guarded palmettos. Escape was not always the rule for runaway slaves who sought freedom in the dark fastness of Florida’s swamps, but for those who did escape the tyranny of slavery, the foreboding swamps quickly became the biblical incarnation of the Promised Land, because in Spanish Florida, a runaway slave’s destiny was miraculously transformed from suffering human chattel to an emancipated person endowed with freedom and liberty. Many slaves, desperate for freedom, successfully ed plantation life in Georgia and other southern states. In Florida, they were well received by Spanish authorities and employed as artisans, soldiers and farmers. Other slaves sought solace with the independent Seminoles that answered to no authority. Over time, these slaves adopted the Seminole culture and became Seminoles at heart. The purchase of Florida in 1819 by the United States would forever change the lives of the blacks and Seminoles living there. The estranged blacks and Seminoles would unite together and become kindred spirits as they fought the invasive Americans who sought their lands and freedom. The black and red cultures became so immerged that General Jessup declared the Second Seminole War to be a Negro War. On November 14 beginning at 7 p.m., the Clewiston Museum will be hosting Dr. Arline Howard as she presents “The African Presence in Spanish Florida: Black Seminoles.” Dr. Howard’s presentation examines the African in uence on Florida’s iconic tribe, the Seminoles, and also the related Caribbean Black Diaspora. Dr. Howard is the associate professor of anthropology and director of the North American Indian Studies Program at the University of Central Florida. She specializes in cultural anthropology and her primary area of research is ethno-historical studies of the African Diaspora, with a focus on the interrelationships formed by African and Indigenous peoples in the Americans and the Caribbean. This free and informative program is made possible by the Florida Humanities Council. Refreshments will be served after the program, so join the Clewiston Museum for a relaxing and entertaining evening on Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. Please contact the Clewiston Museum at 863-983-2870 or e-mail them at clewistonmuseum@embarqmail.com for questions regarding this event.

Get the facts! 13 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee November 7, 2013 An af davit for the arrest of the suspect by the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Of ce (PBSO), obtained by The Clewiston News, described the scene: "Investigators in Hendry County revealed that the body of a headless white female was discovered in a canal. The ngertips had also been removed from this body, and there was a defect at the center of the chest" the defect referred to a .22 caliber bullet later recovered from the body. Before long, the crime scene that initially saw a single deputy responding to con rm the nd was busy with activity, with dozens of investigators from the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce (HCSO), Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and PBSO joining to conduct the follow-up investigation. "Any dead body is out of the ordinary, however, to have one in that state was very concerning to us," said Sheriff Whidden. "It was a horri c act." BOLO Days before her body was found, Kimberly Lindsey, a 49-year-old mother of three recently divorced from her estranged husband Albert Lambert, had failed to show up to work and a co-worker contacted police to check on her. A search of her home revealed blood-like smears on the headboard of her bed and throughout the house. There were no signs of forcible entry, and the woman's money and purse had been left untouched. The discovery launched a massive effort to nd the woman, including a Facebook page created by her three daughters pleading for help in locating their missing mother. HCSO personnel were aware of this fact when they responded to the report of a body found on County Road 835 and Blumberg Road. According to Sheriff Whidden, the acknowledgement was nearly immediate, the unidenti ed body had to be Lindsey's there was no pressing need to launch an all-out search for a killer because PBSO believed it had found its man. "We kind of knew from the beginning, or suspected from the beginning, that it was her exhusband," said Whidden, explaining how Lambert had not followed up with PBSO attempts to speak with him. Toyota Camry The af davit reveals that Lambert, who had the couple's 16-year-old daughter staying with him at his Jupiter home, had enough time on Saturday, Oct. 26, from the moment his daughter went to sleep to when she woke up in the morning six-and-a-half hours later, to leave the home in a Toyota Camry normally used by his daughter but registered to him, drive to his ex-wife's home, commit the crime and dump her body in Clewiston. The daughter said her father owned an extra set of keys to both the Toyota Camry and her mother's home. The car proved a critical element in the investigation. Later on Sunday, when she found out her mother had gone missing, the 16-year-old drove the Camry to her mother's residence in Palm Beach Gardens, where investigators noticed blood on the bumper and trunk of the car. The car would later be matched to Lindsey through DNA analysis. Unresolved motives The warnings signs were clear, according to PBSO investigators. Lambert and Lindsey's divorce was nalized in November of 2012, but the two were still going through court hearings over alimony and child support. In a court hearing just two days before Lindsey went missing, Lambert told the judge "that he would either disappear or go to jail' before he paid anything." Investigators also learned that Lambert had purchased a Charter Arms .22 caliber pistol from Gator Guns and Pawn in West Palm Beach in early October, and had returned ten days later to pick up the gun, ammunition and a cleaning kit. Despite his actions leading up to the murder of his former wife, Lambert did not have a criminal record. Residents around the lake area remember him for his work as an Emergency Room physician at Raulerson Hospital in Okeechobee, and few public signs before the last month would have triggered suspicions that he could be capable of murder. Speaking to reporters on Sunday, two days after DNA tests concluded the body belonged to Lindsey, Sheriff Ric Bradshaw said there was no doubt in his mind that Lambert was the prime suspect in the case. DNA evidence matched Lambert's and Lindsey's blood to samples taken from a pair of white men's underwear, which was recovered during a search warrant executed at Lambert's home. The evidence would arrive too late. Just before deputies could arrest Lambert, a surveillance crew noticed a strange occurrence at the home of Lambert's sister in Miami, where PBSO of cials had been monitoring him: the suspect's sister and a friend were carrying out a body wrapped in a sheet. It belonged to Lambert. The main suspect was apparently dead. Efforts to resuscitate him failed. "He overdosed on narcotics and that's going to put this case as closed, but there is no doubt that he was the suspect that committed this crime," Palm Beach County Sheriff Ric Bradshaw told reporters. And while detectives are con dent Lambert acted alone and was responsible for the murder, no one will ever know what happened in Palm Beach Gardens that night. Lambert takes that to the grave. Preserving the crime scene With the case closed, Sheriff Whidden is proud of the fact that his deputies preserved a crime scene intact, saving evidence that later proved crucial in solving the case. Too often, critical cases like homicides are compromised when a crime scene is not secured properly, the sheriff said. In this case, the radius itself had to be larger in the event a far-off area contained critical clues. "The guys did a wonderful job," he said. "When you rst nd a scene like that, it's very important to secure the scene accurately." The sheriff also had kind words for his counterpart in Palm Beach, Ric Bradshaw. "I would like to offer a personal thank you to Sheriff Bradshaw for all the support he gives us." But he still can't shake the morbid discovery in Clewiston just one day before Halloween. Ac-cording to him, efforts to locate the woman's severed ngers and head have proven unfruitful. He does not hold out hope that those will be recovered. "Realistically, the search area is too great for something like that," he said. "It's like trying to nd a needle in a haystack." MurderContinued From Page 1 Kimberly Lindsey Albert Lambert

The report states that at around 10:50 p.m. a black SUV, witnessed by the security guard on shift, revved its engine, sped through the gate and continued down U.S. Sugar's property. In the report, the security guard stated he watched the SUV drive about 100 feet down the property before he lost sight of it around a corner. When Sergeant Blackman of HCSO arrived at U.S. Sugar, he found a second security guard standing outside a patrol vehicle, watching the black SUV as it sat motionless on the property. Sgt. Blackman approached the driver of the SUV, Humberto Cruz-Hernandez, 26. of Clewiston. As he began talking with Cruz-Hernandez, Sgt. Blackman stated in the report that he noticed the smell of alcohol, Cruz-Hernandez's eyes also appeared bloodshot and his speech was "thicktongued and slurred." Based on these observations and Cruz-Hernandez's "crashing through the U.S. Sugar guard gate," Sgt. Blackman asked Cruz-Hernandez to perform a eld sobriety test, which resulted in Cruz-Hernandez being charged with DUI, according to the report. The report does not specify who will be paying the $400 in damages the security gate sustained. Blotter: Sugar Gate Plowed by Alleged Drunk Driver Cruz-Hernandez
