BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsAn investigation by the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) Criminal Investigation division led to the arrest of three Clewiston woman on April 23. According to a press release issued by the United States Attorney’s Of ce, Roeshell Denise Williams, Sheree Petersen and Yajaira Crespo were arrested and charged with conspiracy to make false claims to the U.S. Department of the Treasury for payment and to embezzle and steal government funds, totaling fteen counts. The three women were also charged with theft of government funds and aggravated identify theft. The arrests stem from activity the women allegedly engaged in between January 2012 and September 2012. According to the indictment, Williams, Peterson and Crespo allegedly conspired to le fraudulent tax returns in the names of individuals who did not authorize the women to do so. The refunds from the fraudulent returns were reportedly deposited into bank accounts controlled by either Williams, Peterson or Crespo.

City Manager Al Perry announced earlier in April that the Clewiston Police Department would be overseeing the city’s code enforcement activity, taking over the operation from the Community Development Department. The announcement had some city residents worried that the police department’s control of code enforcement would lead to an abuse of power. Residents took to social media platforms to voice their concerns. One resident wrote on The Clewiston News’ Facebook page, “This is what you may not quite understand.

The bill, sponsored by Representative Clay Ingram and Senator Rob Bradley, will now head to Governor Rick Scott. The bill adds six additional substances to Schedule 1 of controlled substances and advances Attorney General Bondi’s mission to keep these drugs away from children and the community. “This legislation gives law enforcement and prosecutors the tools they need to keep dangerous synthetic drugs off of store shelves in Florida and out of the hands of our youth,” said Attorney General Pam Bondi. “I thank Representative Clay Ingram, Senator Rob Bradley and both chambers for their support of our efforts to rid the state of synthetic drugs.” The Controlled Substance Bill would also add three extremely lethal synthetic compounds, which are commonly found in the street drug “molly,” to the traf cking statute.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 4 BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonChimney Swifts breed in the United States and southern Canada. Chimney Swifts are usually found in Florida from March until midOctober. They y long distances to their wintering grounds in western Brazil, eastern Peru and other locations in South America. Chimney Swift look like a " ying cigar" when soaring overhead. This small bird has a sooty gray to black elongated body with a slightly lighter or even silvery gray throat. They have large eyes. Chimney Swifts are not capable of perching on a branch or walking on the ground like other birds. They have extremely short legs, hooks on their tiny claws and stiff spiked tail feathers that are adapted for clinging to vertical surfaces. Their high-pitched rapid chirping twitters are often heard when they are in ight. These rapidly ying birds spend most of their time in the air when they aren't nesting or roosting at night. In ight they catch insects, drink, bathe and collect nesting materials. The birds nest in chimneys, rock walls and buildings. The half-cup-shaped nest is made from small sticks which are glued together, and secured to a rock wall or chimney with their saliva. Both parents help incubate the clutch of three to seven white glossy eggs for 19-21 days. Chicks are capable of ight at 28-30 days of age, but may leave the nest after three weeks and cling to the wall.Information If you would like to participate in a bird trip to STA5 e-mail Margaret England.

FLORIDA DEPARTMENT OF HEALTHThe Florida Department of Health will recognize the 20th anniversary of National Infant Immunization Week April 26 May 3, 2014. The Department reminds parents about the bene ts of immunizing children against vaccine-preventable diseases. Immunizations are one of the most effective ways to protect infants and children from potentially serious diseases. Parents should discuss immunization choices with their child's healthcare provider. "Ensuring that our children are vaccinated at an early age is essential to the health and wellbeing of Florida's kids," said Dr. Celeste Philip, Deputy Secretary for Health and Deputy State Health Of cer for Children's Medical Services. "We encourage parents to follow the recommended immunization schedule, providing immunity early in life, before infants and children may be exposed to potentially life-threatening diseases." Provisional 2013 data from CDC indicate more than 24,000 cases of whooping cough (pertussis) occurred in the US, including 9 deaths. All of the deaths were in infants younger than 3 months old. Pertussis is a vaccine-preventable disease. Although there has been a decrease in incidence since 2012, case numbers of pertussis in the US remain high. The provisional data for 2013 indicate Florida had 729 cases of pertussis, including one death. This represents an increase in the number of pertussis cases in Florida over 2012. Along with immunizations for infants, adults who care for infants should receive a Tdap booster to ensure that illness is not transferred from caregiver to baby. Through collaboration with health care professionals around our state, we can combat and decrease the unnecessary harm caused by this disease each year by continuing to immunize children and adults. For information about immunizations, please visit www.immunize orida.org or contact your county health department. Health care providers may also sign up to access the statewide immunization registry at http://www. shots.com/ to keep an online record of their patients' immunization records. The Department works to protect, promote and improve the health of all people in Florida through integrated state, county and community efforts. Follow us on Twitter at @HealthyFla and on Facebook.

A National Day of Prayer: Keep Praying, God AnswersBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martins ChurchThere is a call for a National Day for Prayer, May 1. It coincides with the publication of the news for today and is worthy of a national response. Many will not make it to the city-wide celebration but, hopefully, will take a moment out to talk with the Creator-Sustainer-Redeemer of the universe. Very simply, God answers prayers. He does not always give the answer wanted, nor does He alter the way things are meant to go just for our personal convenience. The prayer that we were given was “…thy will be done…” and not “just mine.” If they are one and the same, all well and good. If not, then I go back to what one of my mentors said about God answering prayer: “keep praying until you get it right!” Maybe we pray for the wrong things, maybe our interests get in the way of God’s purpose. Maybe we are asking for things that are sel sh or ignore that there are others involved, who also have their prayers that differ from ours. Nevertheless, when I keep at it, something will eventually come to provide the answer. Our call is to pray for “our daily bread” and not the whole grocery store! One thing at a time, enough for the present need, tomorrow will be different and with different challenges. In the meantime, keep the line open. I remember hearing years ago that God answers prayers in one of three ways: Yes, No, or Not Now. I also remember hearing “Prayer changes things, or you will change.” Many of the things I prayed for didn’t come as I wanted; they came in a different fashion. I am the better for it; God knew what He was doing and I have re ected on one of the works of a concentration camp survivor who knew of the depths of life and tragedies of human existence. This physician advised that instead of saying “It can’t happen to me,” say instead “It shall happen to me.” He brought home “….thy will be done…” and forced me to face the possibility that the future is unknown for us but that many of the things we’re afraid of are not the end. In the meantime, I work to keep in touch with the one who directs, intervenes, comforts, teaches, listens and heals. A group of farmers immigrated to a rural area to pioneer and develop the agriculture in a wild country. It was hard work. They knew it was going to be hard, but the rocky soil wasn’t really conducive to farming, and many of them decided to return home. The loss of numbers and the strangeness of the land was depressing to those who stayed. Things weren’t going well. One farmer stayed and prayed that God would show him the way. Over time, more and more moved away and conditions became more and more dif cult. Machinery would break down and parts were hard to get, rain didn’t come when needed, crops seemed to fail. Nevertheless, staying and praying were the order of the day for the one who nally remained. Now, on top of all of the other hardships, snakes started to invade the farm. The one who stayed prayed and uttered “God, you must have a purpose in all of this” and was about to throw in the towel when someone pointed out that snake venom was used in medicine. A little investigation and contacts with pharmaceutical houses brought a surprising response. Yes, they were interested; yes, the venom had medicinal uses; yes, they would pay well for the “harvest.” Now farming took a different turn, another problem became an answer and gave meaning to all of the struggles. Harvesting was to be re-learned and humanity would be served in a most unexpected way with greater bene ts to people than ever had been thought of in the past. Prayers were answered and that realization made all the difference. Keep at it, keep in touch, “…thy will… it will be done” and it will be of God, and good. If you would like to contact Rev. Thomas about this column or have an idea for one, please send an email to fatherthomas@ saintmartins-clewiston.org.Gospel ConcertCLEWISTON — Jurnee Productions Presents: Le’Andria Johnson (award-winning gospel artist), Cassandra Stewart (recording artist) and Lele Patrice (recording artist) in a gospel concert known as Inspiration Celebration VIII.

Orvell Howard, Chair Hendry County Local Planning Agency Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 6 BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsA former Clewiston resident is returning to his hometown this weekend and bringing with him a meaningful event near and dear not only to his heart, but to the hearts of those who have served. Tom Loftis, a retired Marine and Clewiston native, is organizing a Wounded Warriors shing tournament to be held at Roland and Mary Ann Martin's Marina on May 3. The tournament will host 20 warriors who will be paired with local anglers to participate in the day-long tournament beginning on Saturday. There is still room to participate in the freeto-enter tournament, as Loftis and his team are looking for seven to 10 more boats to take part in the event. This is Loftis' rst time organizing this type of event, since he became a Wounded Warrior Alumni after his retirement from the Marine Corps in 2008. Loftis joined the Marine Corps in 1986, a dream he had harbored since he was four years old, after meeting a marine at Disney World at the young age. Loftis said the brotherhood and camaraderie of the marine corps drew him in and stuck with him all those years until he joined. "The marine corps is as much a family as it is an organization. That's something that's always stuck with me," said Loftis. Before becoming a marine, Loftis was a regular kid growing up in Clewiston; and like many young kids in the community, Loftis often took up a pole, grabbed some bait and went shing. "I used to sh all the time in Clewiston, and even in the marine corps -whenever I got the opportunity. It's kind of hard to sh when you're in Iraq," said Loftis. Keeping in line with the mission of the Wounded Warrior Project, a national nonpro t organization that seeks to "foster the most successful, well-adjusted generation of wounded service members in our nation's history," this shing tournament aims to provide a source of therapy to the wounded warriors, as well as giving them a platform by which they can share their stories and meet new people. "Fishing is a great source of therapy, and shing with wounded warriors adds to that therapy," said Loftis. "This tournament opens the warriors up to the camaraderie of the Wounded Warrior Program, but hopefully it will also introduce the warrior to someone they have never met before -a sherman in Clewiston and the Lake Okeechobee area." Loftis would like to see the warriors open up to their shing guides in order to share their stories and experiences. "Every warrior has his own story, and it's not always easy for them to talk about," said Loftis. "I've been to more countries than you learn about in high school. [This type of program] gives the wounded warriors the opportunity to share their stories." Loftis also said it is a perfect opportunity for the sherman to share their own experiences and knowledge of shing. The tournament kicks off at safelight (roughly between 7 a.m. and 7:30 a.m.) on Saturday, May 3. The weigh-in will be held around 3 p.m. at Roland and Mary Ann Martin's Marina. There will also be a special banquet held May 2 at 6 p.m., hosted by the VFW Post in Clewiston. "It [the tournament] is something I've wanted to do for a long time, and it's nally happening," said Loftis. Loftis said he couldn't have organized such an event without the help of the Wounded Warrior Program, as well as other local sponsors. "They're helping me make it happen," he said.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 8 BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsThe Clewiston City Commission called a special meeting on April 29 to discuss pertinent topics concerning the city, including the 2015 paving project and the future of the East Hendry County Recreation agreement.2015 Paving ProjectAt the top of the meeting, commissioners discussed the 2015 paving project. Public Works Director Sean Schef er explained that the city is on a two-mile per year paving plan, at roughly $100,000 per mile. The city, said Schef er, plans to pave two miles of road per year over a 25-year plan, which would theoretically cover the 75 miles of road that comprise the city of Clewiston. As part of the 2015 paving project, Schef er explained that the driveway aprons -the area between the homeowner's driveway and the road -will also be paved. Homeowners are responsible for half of the cost of the new apron and the city is responsible for the second half. Schef er said that a driveway apron usually costs around $1,500 to $2,000. Schef er also mentioned that in February 2016, all city residents will be required to have driveway aprons that separate their driveways from the main road, otherwise, the homeowner will be in violation of the city's code of ordinances. As the Public Works Department looks for the road to be paved in 2015, Schef er and City Manager Al Perry are discussing what percentage of the $200,000 should be invested in driveway aprons and what percentage should be invested in the actual roadway, especially considering the change in city code coming in 2016.Future of East County RecCity Manager Al Perry said the main purpose of the special meeting was to discuss the future of the East Hendry County Recreation agreement and to get city commissioners on the same page before they meet with county commissioners in a joint meeting to be held May 13. The discussion, at rst, centered around the idea of charging the different unincorporated areas of eastern Hendry County, including Harlem, Hookers Point and Montura, different assessments to help cover the cost of East Hendry County Rec. One Clewiston resident addressed the commissioners and told them he thought it was unfair to charge one unincorporated area one assessment and another unincorporated area another assessment. "Treating one class of taxpayers differently from another class of taxpayers is illegal, and if it's not illegal, it should be," said the resident. "Certainly that's not fair or equitable to do that." Commissioner Gardner agreed that the commission needed to nd a way to fund East Rec that was fair for everyone, but also realized that the recreation budget, as it now stands, is unsustainable. "We've got to come up with a way to fund this that is fair and equitable for all residents," she said. "I know we can't sustain the city's recreation budget unless we raise taxes, and I don't want to do that," she said, adding that the city cannot maintain the current recreation budget if it has to pay for residents in the unincorporated areas to use its facilities. Commissioner Pittman asked his fellow commissioners to come up with ways to lower the cost of recreation for city residents and began compiling a list. Higher user fees was the rst method mentioned, including possibly charging higher fees for unincorporated residents to participate in city leagues, instead of charging them a set special assessment. Commissioner Pittman also suggested the Hendry County School Board pay for school teams to utilize the playing elds in the city. "We can't just break even. Remember, we're trying to put savings back onto the homeowners, so we need to make a pro t," said Commissioner Pittman. That pro t would be hard to make, since the current Clewiston Recreation budget alone is over $700,000. Commissioner Julio Rodriguez then joined the discussion. "Right now, our recreation budget is $719,000. Once we include the county, that's going to go up. We're going to need more balls, more staff, more maintenance. ... I'm worried that our budget may have a shortfall, or that we're going to have to reduce services." Commissioners continued to struggle with the cost of the city's recreation and how much residents should pay for those services. If an MSBU were set at $150 per household in the incorporated and unincorporated areas of eastern Hendry County, said Recreation Director Lance Ramer, the funds collected would not cover the current, total cost of recreation, both within the city limits and within the eastern portion of Hendry County. In fact, said Ramer, roughly $90,000 worth of services would need to be cut. "I'm willing to do whatever we can to see the millage rate decrease for the residents of this city," said Commissioner Gardner. Commissioner Rodriguez said he worried about what may happen if commissioners focused too much on lowering the millage rate for city residents. "I'm for not raising taxes, but if we start lowering our millage and then we don't have the money to mow parks or x roads, we're going to die, we're going to be a dying community," he said. "In order to keep our city the way it is and maintain the same level of service -I don't know how much more we can cut." Mayor Phillip Roland chimed in, saying it may be necessary to charge $200 per unit to maintain the facilities as they are now. Commissioner Pittman suggested subtracting things from underneath the umbrella of East Rec. Finance Director Ted Byrd suggested that East Rec start by charging the city residents and unincorporated areas $150 per unit, excluding Montura -whose residents have insinuated they do not want to be included in the East Rec agreement this year. Using those assessments, over $800,000 would be raised for East Hendry County Rec. Commissioners agreed that Byrd's suggestion would be a good start, but they also agreed that a second meeting was necessary before commissioners meet with the county on May 13. It was agreed upon that commissioners would meet on May 8 at 3:30 p.m. in Clewiston City Hall to further discuss East Hendry County Rec. Commissioners also asked Recreation Director Ramer and City Manager Perry to meet sometime this week to create an itemized list of all the facilities and programs, plus the cost to maintain them, in the East Hendry County Rec area, to be presented before the next meeting. Commissioners said they would use that list to determine just how much it would cost to run East Rec, before they discuss the assessments any further. Headaches Grow Concerning East Rec HENDRY COUNTY SHERIFFS OFFICETen years ago, in the early morning hours of April 25, 2004, a young, energetic and dedicated Deputy Sheriff Brian Haas was on duty. He had been employed with the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce for about 2.5 years and was well on his way to ful lling his lifelong dream of being a deputy sheriff with the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce. He started out as a correctional of cer in 2002 and transferred to road patrol by December 1, 2003. Early on April 25, 2004, that all changed. Deputy Haas, along with Deputy Keith Bennett, were responding from Clewiston to a delayed burglary call in Montura. On the way, Deputy Haas was involved in a traf c crash that ended his life at the age of 21. In the minutes that followed his tragic crash, the world was turned upside down for the Haas family. However, during their time of loss, both Bob and Norie Haas were determined to keep their son's memory alive. In 2005, the Haas family established a scholarship fund for Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce employees, Explorers, and volunteers who wish to further their career and education in criminal justice. To date, the Haas family has awarded over $30,000 in scholarships. In 2004, then Hendry County Sheriff, Steve Worley, dedicated the newly built training facility as the Brian Haas Memorial Training Facility and placed a granite monument in front of the building. Within the community of Hendry County and members of the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce, many still remember and speak of Brian fondly. "I remember Brian well. He was a wonderful young man, set to take on the challenges of law enforcement and dedicated to the citizens of this county," said Sheriff Steve Whidden. "His parents, Bob and Norie, are seen frequently at holiday and other department functions." Sheriff Whidden continued, "...and they remain involved in Concerns of Police Survivors and participate in an annual retreat that addresses parental survival." Those of us who knew Brian are fortunate to have known this young man, who chose to serve his community with dedication, and his family, who lost their son, but chose to keep his memory alive, by serving others in law enforcement and those who have lost loved ones in the line of duty. After Fatal Accident, Brian Haas’ Memory Looms

BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsClewiston Middle School (CMS) received exciting news earlier this month, thanks to one teacher and his vision for a completely interactive math classroom. Gary Break eld, a math teacher at CMS, submitted his idea for an interactive math classroom and was awarded $4,996 from the CenturyLink Clarke M. Williams Foundation Teachers and Technology Grant Program to implement his idea at CMS. The CenturyLink grant program, in partnership with the Consortium of Florida Education Foundations, awards grant money to schools on behalf of teachers who propose creative and innovative ways to implement technology in their classrooms. Throughout Southwest Florida, 10 schools were awarded up to $5,000 to purchase technology to bene t students in the classroom. Break eld's project, titled, "The Completely Interactive Math Classroom," pairs mobile devices with teachers' lessons with the goal of improving student participation and performance. "This will give every child an opportunity to participate in every single thing we [teachers] do. Rather than just asking a question and waiting for students to raise their hands, we will ask a question and every student can give their response on the devices. We should be able to get more data than we've ever been able to get before on how our students are progressing, and, hopefully, it will lead to higher student achievement," said Break eld of his innovative program. The interactive classroom will see math teachers using a mobile tablet device, called a "mobiview," which captures everything they write and displays it on the computer and projector. Break eld says the mobi-view gives teachers the freedom to walk about the classroom, and allows them to draw and highlight things, such as powerpoint presentations and websites, to enhance the learning experience for students. The mobi-view not only controls what is shown on the big screen, it also controls the hand-held devices the students use throughout the lesson. These devices, dubbed, "mobi-learners," let students work collaboratively to solve problems and will demonstrate the students' work immediately, said Break eld. Teachers can also relinquish control of the lesson to students on their mobi-learners. Break eld said one of the most important features of this technological classroom is the ability to compile data on student performance. When teachers ask a question, said Break eld, the students submit their answers and are given immediate feedback on the accuracy of their answers; the teachers can then create a spreadsheet based on those answers and target students who need additional help, or pinpoint topics that need further review. Break eld said the program will be implemented in all six math classes at CMS, thanks to the CenturyLink grant and matching funds. He said he hopes the program will be implemented as early as the fall of the 2014/15 school year. The program, he added, will be used regularly in the classroom, not just on special occasions. Break eld, who has worked in the Hendry County School District as both teacher and administrator for the past 24 years, said technology has become an important facet of the classroom in the 21st century. "I couldn't imagine teaching any other way, than without using technology in the classroom," said Break eld.

According to U.S. Attorney A. Lee Bentley III, if convicted, the women face up to ve years in federal prison for each count of conspiracy and up to 10 years in prison for each count of theft of government funds. They may also face two years in prison for the aggravated identity theft charges, to be served consecutive to the other sentences imposed, if convicted. Williams was charged with one count of conspiracy and four counts of theft of government funds. Peterson was charged with one count of conspiracy, one count of theft of government funds and six counts of aggravated identity theft. Crespo was charged with one count of conspiracy, two counts of theft of government funds and one count of aggravated identity theft. The case will be prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Jeffrey F. Michelland. IRSContinued From Page 1 ...IF CONVICTED, THE WOMEN FACE UP TO FIVE YEARS IN FEDERAL PRISON FOR EACH COUNT OF CONSPIRACY AND UP TO 10 YEARS IN PRISON FOR EACH COUNT OF THEFT OF GOVERNMENT FUNDS... leaders expect to host well over 1,000 people throughout the big day, which will bring in lots of traf c and, to ensure safety for all, a police presence. Typically a host of sheriff's of ces (Hendry, Glades, Palm Beach, Charlotte and Lee, among others) work together to maintain a level of order in efforts to allow everyone to enjoy the occasion without the threat of violence. But according to Brown Sugar Festival Committee member and longtime Harlem resident Al Gary, it won't be necessary to that extent this weekend. With that said, the expectation is for the Brown Sugar Festival to be a celebration of families coming together from near and far. It's set up to be more like a family reunion of sorts. "We're trying to get everything in one area," said Gary, who is also the co-overseer of this year's talent show with Loretta Braithwaite. "We want to keep it simple and take it back to the way it used to be." The Brown Sugar Festival, which started in 1978, was founded by Harlem pioneers Gwendolyn Patrick. It has grown to become one of South Florida's most recognized festivals year in and year out. "This year's Brown Sugar Festival is a homecoming for our alumni of the Harlem Academy," Hendry County Commissioner and longtime Harlem resident Janet Taylor said. "The culture experience it brings is like none you can describe anywhere." Here's a listing of the events that are slated to take place at this year's Brown Sugar Festival: Friday, May 2 Brown Sugar Banquet with the Class of 1964 at Harlem Civic Center 7 p.m. Talent Show at Clewiston Middle School 7 p.m. Saturday, May 3 Brown Sugar Parade at Harlem Civic Center 10 a.m. Teen Dance at Harlem Civic Center 9 p.m. For more information on the 36th annual Brown Sugar Festival, visit the Web at 1brownsugarfestival.info or contact Brown Sugar Festival Committee chairperson Tim Brown at 910797-3500. FESTIVALContinued From Page 1 erty because they can claim code infringement.' As citizens of Clewiston, we should ght this. I'm not even sure it's legal." Another resident commented, "This is not legal. First, this was not put into a vote. Second, police are law enforcement, not code enforcement. It's a misconduct when decisions of this magnitude are taken without the public concern." A third resident was concerned about the police department's reputation among the citizens of Clewiston. "What an absolutely effective way to make the citizens dislike the police department even more than they do now," the resident wrote. Commissioners, at their regular meeting held April 21, also took the time to voice their concerns after the city manager asked them to ratify the changes to the city's code enforcement activities. "I'm 80 percent on board with the changes," said Commissioner James Pittman, before asking the of cers in the room, as well as Attorney Schoech, if acting as code enforcement could jeopardize criminal cases. If an of cer is on a code enforcement case, asked Commissioner Pittman, and he sees criminal activity, what could the rami cations to the criminal case be? Attorney Schoech responded, saying that code infractions are civil, not criminal. A code enforcement violation would not affect a criminal case, so long as all procedures are followed correctly, he said. Attorney Schoech also said it is not uncommon for of cers to be involved in code enforcement activity. Mayor Phillip Roland also wondered if of cers on a code enforcement call could respond to criminal activity they see happening. "If an of cer goes onto a property for a code enforcement violation and sees something criminal, could he do something about it?" asked Mayor Roland. Attorney Schoech answered Mayor Roland's question, and hit the nail on the head for many residents who are concerned about a possible abuse of power on the part of the police department. "If they're [the of cer] doing code enforcement, they cannot go on the property. Code enforcement must be done from the public right of way or from an abutting property with permission from that owner. They have zero rights to go on someone's property for code enforcement. If the property owner gives them permission to go onto the property for code enforcement, then the of cer can act on the criminal activity," said Attorney Schoech. After the short discussion and the clari cations from Attorney Schoech, commissioners voted on the motion on the table: to ratify the changes to the city's code enforcement. Commissioner Mali Gardner, previous to the discussions, made a motion to approve the rati cation. Commissioner Julio Rodriguez seconded her motion, and commissioners voted to approve the rati cation. Commissioner James Pittman made sure the record showed that he was not in favor of putting the police department in charge of the city's code enforcement activities. After the changes were rati ed, Commissioner Rodriguez applauded the city manager's decision, saying these sorts of consolidations are necessary to keep the city competitive in this day in age. "In the 21st century, we're going to have to make some changes -in order to be scally responsible for the budget, for our employees, for our residents -so we don't have to raise the millage, We have to try to do things like this. We have to consolidate some of our departments," said Commissioner Rodriguez. "Since I've been here, I've always said some of our employees needed more to do, honestly. And I've thought that consolidating some of the departments was the right thing to do. Now, down the road, if there's a problem, am I willing to go back and make a change? Absolutely, But I think we're headed in the right direction." QUESTIONSContinued From Page 1 IN THE 21ST CENTURY, WE’RE GOING TO HAVE TO MAKE SOME CHANGES...

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee May 1, 2014 16 BY PATTY BRANT Special to e Clewiston NewsThe ght to prevent Florida Power & Light from building a huge "Clean Energy Center" continues. The board of county commissioners approved zoning in May 2011 that would allow the plant to be built. At its February 25 meeting, the board amended its Economic Development Element of the Future Land Use Map (FLUM) and added the de nition of an Economic Engine Project and Target Industries to its Comprehensive Plan. A lawsuit seeking to force Hendry County to reverse its May 2011 rezoning of that proposed site from General Agriculture to Planned Unit Development set for April 21 at the Hendry County Circuit Court has been postponed. The struggle over the 2,300 acre in southeast Hendry County, situated in the midst of panther habitat and adjacent to the Big Cypress Reservation, continued over Earth Day, April 22, at the Hendry County Courthouse as the county commission met. Protesters at the corner of SR 80 and Bridge Street began on Monday, raising signs and seeking support from passers-by. On Tuesday, they were again at the corner and also came to the commission room to hear the proceedings and to deliver their message to commissioners once again. The commissioners listened as members of the Tribe and others spoke passionately on their reasons for opposing the power plant. Speaker after speaker raised the alarm about spoiling traditional Seminole lands as well as the loss of habitat for wildlife like panthers and birds, clean air and irreplaceable wildlands that have shaped the state of Florida and beyond. The plant proposed for southeast Hendry is the same model as one constructed several years ago at Loxahatchee in Palm Beach County. It will pump 22 million gallons of industrial waste water per day into the aquifer. Protesters fear endangering the area's water source for humans and wildlife and further stressing endangered species. Heather Billie lives about two miles from the site. At the Monday protest she said she is concerned about what will happen to the air. "When we come to town it feels hard to breathe, we can smell the tar and everything not the owers and nature." The mother of three children, ages six, three and four months, she said many drivers on SR 80 and Bridge Street gave the protesters encouragement by honking their horns and waving. Panagioti Tsolkas of Earth First lives in Palm Beach County and previously protested against FPL's Loxahatchee site returned Tuesday and spoke before the commission. He said they lost the ght at Loxahatchee, but are prepared to continue it here in Hendry. He added that he understands FPL's desire to situate the facility there it's a perfect site to reach both coasts. However, Mr. Tsolkas said that area needs to remain wild and natural for the creatures and humans that call it home and enriches all of us. He also indicated that FPL is the state's biggest lobbyist and its "most corrupt." A Sun-Sentinal report from January 2012 quotes gures from the Environmental Protective Agency study that show the Loxahatchee plant pumps a large amount of greenhouse gases, in particular carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. The report further states in part that FPL "calls the gures misleading, saying the plant is a clean, ef cient natural-gas red facility that ranks high on the EPA's list simply because it is one of the largest power plants in the nation." Group spokesman Frank Billie Jr., was there Monday and Tuesday. He said the plant would not immediately affect the environment, but the effects would eventually fall on our grandchildren. He recalled being able to enjoy wildlife and the woods as he was growing up. Contamination was present, but not severe at that time, he said. He pointed to serious water quality problems with a river on the Eagle Butte Reservation in South Dakota as a view to the future should the plant go into use.
