BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News“Right, wrong or indifferent, something is happening,” said Lance Ramer, director of Clewiston’s Recreation Department, as he sat in his new ofce -the product of some Youth Center spring cleaning and a lucky snag of hand-me-down of ce furniture. “It’s not just talks anymore.” Ramer spoke of the Eastern Hendry County Recreation Agreement, an interlocal agreement that, after four years in the making, nally went into effect on Nov. 1. The East County Rec agreement was designed as a means for unincorporated areas of eastern Hendry County, including Harlem, Hookers Point and Montura, to share the cost of recreation services with the residents of Clewiston. Talks concerning the agreement rst began about four years ago, said Ramer, after the state cut much of its funding and both the county and city commissions were looking at ways to trim the budget. Commissioners asked Ramer and his Recreation Department to “gather information” to see what could be done about cost-sharing recreation services. Ramer came back to the commissions with two years worth of information citing how many people participated in the city of Clewiston’s recreational activities, including baseball, softball, soccer and the like; how many people used the recreation department’s amenities with a reservation, including Sugarland and Trinidad BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA minor accident involving a Hendry County deputy left a LaBelle man with a felony hit and run charge over Thanksgiving weekend.

2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 4 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee December 5, 2013 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonRuddy Ducks are common breeding birds in wetlands and reservoirs from southwestern Canada through the western United States and Mexico. They also nest in scattered sites in the eastern United States, including Florida and as far south as the Caribbean islands. The migratory Ruddy Ducks arrive in Florida in September and depart by mid-March. These small, compact ducks have a stout, scoop-shaped bill and a long, stiff tail that they often hold cocked upward. They have a fairly short, thick neck and a slightly peaked head. Males have a blackish cap with bright white cheeks. In the summer months, males have rich chestnut bodies with a bright blue bill; in the winter months, they are gray-brown above and paler below with dull gray bills. The females and rst-year males are brownish and have a blurry strip across their cheek patch. The oldest Ruddy Duck on record lived to be at least 13 years and seven months old. These birds are usually silent. The female makes a nasally sound to call her brood, a high pitched call to ward off unwelcome males, and will hiss when threatened. The male only has one call: a belch-like sound that he makes during courtship displays. In migration, Ruddy Ducks ock to large rivers, ponds or lakes, but they also gather in coastal estuaries. These birds feed mainly at night where they dive to the bottom of shallow ponds, straining mouthfuls of mud through the thin plates on their bills. They swallow the aquatic insects, crustaceans and mollusks that are left behind. They also eat aquatic plants and seeds. During the day, they are often observed sleeping with their head tucked under a wing and tail cocked up. The male courts a female by beating its bill against its neck hard enough to create a swirl of bubbles in the water. These small ducks are very aggressive towards each other and other species during breeding season and have been known to chase rabbits feeding on the shore. The female chooses the nest site where the nest of plant materials is built in the tall vegetation in marshes, ponds or lakes. The nest starts as a platform and becomes more bowlshaped from use. Ruddy Ducks usually weave a canopy of vegetation over their nest. The female lays six to eight creamy white eggs with a pebbly texture. These eggs are "the largest of all duck eggs relative to body size" (Cornell, All about Birds). The eggs are incubated for approximately 23 to 26 days. At birth, the hatchlings are active, welldeveloped and covered with down that is dark above and lighter below. The edglings are capable of ight when they are 43 to 48 days old. The community is invited to join HendryGlades Audubon volunteers for free birding trips to Stormwater Treatment Area 5 (STA-5), located 20 miles south of Clewiston, on Dec. 14 and Dec. 28. Photographers, groups and families are welcome to participate in the escorted trips and the Jan. 4 Christmas Bird county. For reservations, contact Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.

Vehicles are one of the biggest investments for any individual, so taking care of them just makes good sense. While regular wear and tear cannot be avoided over time, there are some important steps one can take to keep one's vehicle on the road longer: Wash Cars and Trucks Often Regularly washing one's car or truck may keep one riding in style, but a clean vehicle is not just for appearances. Keeping one's car or truck clean and free of debris and detrimental road salt will prevent rusting and costly repairs down the line. Oil Changes and Filters To protect one's engine, follow the manufacturer's recommended oil change intervals. Instead of conventional oil, consider using high-performance synthetic motor oil designed to reduce wear, heat and fuel consumption. Just like motor oil, not all oil lters are of the same quality - lters can be classi ed as "economy," "better" and "best. Since the oil lter prevents contaminants from circulating through the system and causing damage, opting for a premium oil lter will extend the life of one's vehicle. Smoother Driving The way one drives can affect a vehicle's performance and longevity. Take care to accelerate and decelerate smoothly. Not only will this increase fuel economy, but it will extend the life of the brake pads. Avoid feel-good driving maneuvers, like revving the engine, and try not to drive on a nearly empty gas tank. Neither of these behaviors are good for the engine and could result in costly repairs. By following a maintenance routine and practicing good driving habits, one can extend the life of one's vehicle well after driving it off the lot. How to Extend the Life of a Car or Truck

Coffey (Ret.), a beloved father, grandfather, and great-grandfather, with a distinguished ca reer of public service, died November 26, 2013. Mr. Coffey was born on May 8, 1921, in Missionary Ridge, Georgia. His father, Robert L. Coffey, Sr., had been a successful brick manufacturer, and his mother, Curry Brindley Coffey, once worked as a milliner and would live to be one hundred years old. After his family lost their businesses as a result of the Great Depression, they moved to Johnstown, Pennsylvania where he attended Franklin High School. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1940, hoping to join a cavalry unit, but was instead assigned to the Army Air Corp. He trained in Albuquerque, New Mexico, later in Santa Ana, California, and nally in Sacramento before shipping out to England. His WW II service, lled with patriotism and heroism, saw the anguish of losing friends during combat, as well as various adventures. For example, during one of his weekends on leave, he met and danced with the legendary Shirley Temple. He also learned assorted Irish songs including “The Night That Paddy Murphy Died” which he sang as recently as this past year. He ew 35 B-17 missions over Europe, at a time when the attrition rate was 5%, meaning one in 20 planes would not return from each mission. Midway through his missions, he became lead navigator, so that he led the rest of the formation to its target and back. The size of such formations would vary, but at times it could be more than 40 bombers. The lead plane was inevitably the most exposed. During and after the war, he received various commendations and awards for his service to his country. Tragically, his beloved brothers died in airplane crashes, younger brother, William, during the war, and older brother, Robert, an ace ghter pilot and then a Member of Congress, in 1949. After the war, John Coffey attended the University of Miami where he met Valerie Kendall, his future wife. Following graduation, he married Valerie but was soon recalled to military duty due to the Korean con ict. Joining what had by then become the U.S. Air Force, he served in various important posts, ranging from B-52 crews and the Inspector General’s staff to liaison assignments with the Colombian military in the 1960s. In his nal assignment, he served as the Director of Operations for the United States Air Force in Europe, moving his family to Wiesbaden-Mainz area in what was then West Germany. A position requiring great ability and integrity, given Europe’s vital importance during the Cold War, Lt. Col. Coffey was recognized for his outstanding work: “Lieutenant Colonel John B. Coffey distinguished himself by meritorious service in the performance of outstanding service to the United States while serving in the Deputate of Operations, Headquarters United States Air Forces in Europe from 27 July 1966 through 1 July 1969. During this period, Lieutenant Colonel Coffey’s superior initiative, leadership, and devotion to duty resulted in highly unusual and new approaches to long-standing problems. His diplomacy and tact in dealing with other foreign nationals signi cantly enhance the development of NATO war planning capabilities and their integration and coordination with those of the United States. The singularly distinctive accomplishments of Lieutenant Colonel Coffey culminate a distinguished c areer in the service o f his country and re ect great credit upon himself and the United States Air Force.” During the three years he served as director of the Air Force’s European Operations, he also became close to many in the local community in Mainz, Germany, and was an active member of the St. George Horse Riding and Driving Club. In 1968 and 1969, he was the only American e ver to be named an honorary member of the Mainzer Ranzen Garde, a local society that commemorated public events riding horses in 18th Century c avalry attire and formations. In 1969, he retired and moved with Valerie and their three sons, Christopher, Kendall and Kevin, to Miami, Florida. Following h is retirement, he was an outspoken critic of the Vietnam War and would, over the next four decades, author numerous columns and op ed pieces concerni ng U.S. militar y and foreign policy. A brilliant thinker, who served as President of Miami’s Unitarian Church, he was exceptionally well-informe d about national and world events. In 1974, with his sons moving on to college, he and Valerie moved to Moore Haven, Florida, where they lived toget her for more than three decades at Coffey Farm on U.S. Highway 27. John and Valerie had many wonderful friends in Glades County and were active i n, among man y organizations, the Lions Club which named him “Man of The Year”. During those years, Mr. Coffey continued his dedicated work fo r the public, serving as a Glades County Commissioner for eight years including several years as Chair of the County Commission. An advocate for environmental and other causes, his many accomplishments include leading the successful ght to maintain public access to Fisheating Creek. Coffey Road is named in honor of John and Valerie Coffey. Following a long illness, Valerie Coffey died in 2005. The end of their 57 year love story left him devastated.

parks, the John Boy Auditorium and the city pool. According to the numbers, about 40 percent of recreation facility usage comes from residents living outside the city limits, said Ramer. City residents, however, pay 100 percent of the operating costs. Originally, this inequality was offset by a $50,000 stipend provided by the county as part of an interlocal agreement, which replaced a $20 premium tacked onto recreational fees for unincorporated residents. The $50,000 stipend “ lled in the gap,” said Ramer, but it was reduced by ve percent last year, after the county made budget cuts across the board. A better solution needed to be found, so the Eastern Hendry County Communities Recreation Advisory Board was formed. At the time, it was made up of ve representatives from the city of Clewiston, ve representatives from the county, one representative from the school board and one representative from the Big Cypress Reservation. The board met every two weeks for ve months and presented “Proposition 9” to both the city and county commissions in April and May 2013, respectively. Prop 9 raised the assessment rates of unincorporated areas by 100 percent, meaning residents in Montura paid a $40 MSBU instead of their original $20 and all other areas paid $100, instead of their original $50. Commissioners on the county board also agreed to pay a $125,000 stipend to the city to help pay for recreation programs as part of the proposition. The goal of Prop 9, and the East County Rec agreement in general, is to “level the playing eld” so that all residents in eastern Hendry County pay the same amount for recreation services, said Ramer. The current interlocal agreement is a one-year trial, explained Ramer, and will be re-assessed near the end of this scal year. The main point of contention in the agreement is the MSBU, or Municipal Service Bene t Unit, that was raised for unincorporated residents with the hopes that city residents’ taxes would be lowered. At their last meeting, city commissioners voted to begin the process of changing the MSBU, but with Commissioner James Pittman voting against the measure, citing uncertainty and prematurity as his reasoning. Commissioner Pittman said the city should operate East Rec using the $125,000 stipend from the county only until it sees how East Rec works. The MSBU has its perks, however, mainly because the money raised can be rolled into the next scal year and isn’t bound by bureaucracy and red tape. The MSBU allows the recreation department to provide services without “jumping through political hoops,” said Ramer, and after so many years in the making, he is excited about the new agreement, even in its infancy. “I want this to be something that we can maintain and grow from,” said Ramer. Ramer said he does not want to start providing services that he cannot provide the next year if this agreement does not work out as hoped. “That would disappoint the kids, the community and myself,” said Ramer. Despite the uncertainty, Ramer has high hopes about the agreement and uses the Harlem Gym as an example of why the agreement is bene cial to everyone it affects. With basketball, air hockey, table tennis, football, foosball, double dutch and indoor soccer nets on their way, it isn’t the amenities the Harlem Gym lacks, just a little tender love and care which would come from a little extra money -and a portion of the $125,000 stipend is a good start. With that money, applications for two, parttime employees to man the gym have already been accepted. Once they are hired, the gym, which is now open Monday through Friday from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., will eventually be open seven days a week. Andre Taylor, Lance’s right hand man at the recreation department, currently watches the gym until the new staff members are hired. Visiting with Taylor at the gym on Tuesday night, he fondly runs through the upcoming plans and programs for the gym. “I’m trying to get people to do some community hours to help clean it up,” said Andre, as he looks around at the yellowed sign reading “no food beyond this point” hanging on the wall and the rusted water fountain xed crooked in the ground. Though the decor may be dated, the atmosphere in the gym is just the opposite, as a group of a dozen men play a game of basketball in the center of the gym. 15-year-old Brian George is among one of the players. He sat on the bleachers against the gym wall, tying his basketball shoes and taking a short break before getting back in the game. “I come here every day to play basketball,” said George. “It’s the same group of people basically every day.” It’s because of players like George that Ramer hopes the East County Rec agreement works out. The will and drive to utilize the many recreational facilities is already present, now, hopefully, the money will be present to make those facilities even better. The most important thing, Ramer said, is to provide recreation and leisure services for the city and county residents “from cradle to grave.” 2 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 27, 2010 Ridge Insurance 863-382-3119 Policies have exclusions and limitations.

ARRESTContinued From Page 1 BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA routine stop to refuel at the pump led to the arrest of a mother and daughter in Clewiston on Nov. 30. The duo were lling up at the Tropical Village Market when the two reportedly began arguing about money and got into a ght. According to a report released by the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce (HCSO), the daughter asked her mother for more cash to pay for some items inside the Tropical convenience store, which caused the mother to get into the car "in a t" and declare she was "just going to walk away and go home." The daughter then got into the car and started screaming and cursing at her mother, who got back out of the car and walked toward the eastern side of the store, according to the report. The daughter followed her mother and, after some choice words, the daughter ended up on the ground with a half-inch laceration on her head. The report states that a witness saw the incident and said the mother hit her daughter on the had with a pink canteen, however, the canteen was never recovered by HCSO deputies. The mother told deputies that she was defending herself against her daughter, who allegedly pulled her hair and dragged her to the ground, according to the mother's testimony in the report. Both the mother and daughter were charged with one count of domestic violence battery. The mother was also charged with felony aggravated battery causing bodily harm or disability. Blotter: Family FeudClewiston parking lot brawl ends in the arrest of mother and daughter On Nov. 4, eight families graduated from the Healthy Families Program of the Florida Department of Health in Hendry County. All families ful lled the requirements by successfully completing home visits, demonstrating knowledge on their children's development, keeping their children up-to-date with immunizations and well-child check-ups, as well as developing and accomplishing goals for their families. Parents mastered the skills to provide a safe and nurturing environment for their children to learn and grow. Maria Ramos attended the event as a graduating parent. "I was scared to be a parent. I didn't know much. I learned how to change a diaper and care for my baby. I learned how to do things with my children. I think I am a better parent because of what I learned in Healthy Families," said Ramos. Families enjoyed a dinner provided by United Way and the Kiwanis Club of LaBelle. For their accomplishments, parents received a certi cate of completion and rst aid kits, and each child received a backpack. Healthy Families is an intensive, long-term home visiting program that empowers high-risk parents towards self-suf ciency. To learn more about Healthy Families, please call 863-674-4041, ext 149.
