BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsHendry County topped the charts for total recycling rates in the state of Florida, ranking number three out of the 67 counties, according to a report released July 3 by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The report looked at each county’s rate of recycling in 2013 using traditional methods, as well as the number of renewable energy credits each county earned, which are calculated based on the amount of renewable energy produced using solid waste as a fuel. With a 68 percent total recycling rate, Hendry County ranked number three in the state, just under Lee County (70 percent) and Hillsborough County (73 percent). Total recycling rates represent a combination of traditional recycling practices and renewable energy credits. According to the report, a signi cant portion of Hendry County’s total recycling rate comes from those renewable energy credits -nearly A Clewiston woman was arrested last week for DUI and property damage after she allegedly crashed into a van while three young children sat in the back seat of her car, according to an arrest report released by the Clewiston Police Department. At around 6:32 a.m. on July 2, of cers responded to reports of a traf c crash at the intersection of Francisco and Sonora Avenues. When of cers arrived, they reportedly found a green Mitsubishi sedan with minor dent damage and a white Dodge Caravan with its bumper laying on the ground. Of cers then attempted to speak with both drivers to get an account of what happened. Of cer Herrera spoke with the driver of the van, because he did not speak English, and translated for the other of cers at the scene. According to the report, the driver of the van, 45-year-old Eddie Alberto Muniz Silva, told of cers he was stopped at a stop sign when the sedan ran into the front of his van, then attempted to back up as if it BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsIt was a hot and sticky evening, as remnants of the afternoon’s rain seemed to rise from the dewy blades and linger on the skin. But the South Florida summer couldn’t stop the dozen or so children from pouring onto the rodeo arena at the Clewiston Fairgrounds on July 1 for the Exceptional Equestrians program. Held the rst Tuesday of each month, Exceptional Equestrians is the culmination of years of frustration countered by years of dedication to bringing a support system for children with special needs to the area. Mother and special needs activist Stephanie Busin said she was frustrated by the county’s lack of resources and support for kids with autism and their parents, when she rst spoke with County Commissioner Karson Turner about bringing the Exceptional Equestrians program to the Clewiston Fairgrounds. As a mother of a child with autism, Busin became discouraged by Hendry County’s lack of autism-speci c resources, including doctors who can diagnose and treat children with autism, support groups and access to effective treatments. Busin said with only 40 children in Hendry County diagnosed with autism, there are 63 children who have an autism spectrum disease who have not been properly diagnosed, if the county were on par H.C.

A big thanks goes out to the FFA advisors Jennie Goffe, Brandi Coleman and Donna Sparks. Because of their great efforts, there were approximately 275 members and guests present, and close to 100 awards were given.AnnouncementsIn recent news, U.S. Sugar conducted their rst annual Tractor Driving eld day with the Clewiston FFA. This event was held on May 28 at Clewiston FFA's Land Lab, commonly referred to as "480." A group of chosen FFA members were able to participate in the eld day. The students who were chosen have an interest in learning how to operate machinery, speci cally tractors, that U.S. Sugar provided. FFA would like to thank Gator Hammock, who catered both events with steak and rib dinners. On Thursday, June 12, a few FFA Members who raise cattle attended the seventh annual University of Florida Youth Field Day, held in Ona, Fla. Students learned about basic animal nutrition, body conditioning scoring of beef cattle, essential trace minerals for grazing cattle in Florida, reproductive anatomy, physiology of dairy cattle and much more. The program was a success and the FFA will do their best to make sure students will be able to attend again next year. FFA members who completed an application before the awards banquet were chosen to attend the Florida State FFA Conference, currently being held in Orlando. The students attending the conference have been active in the Clewiston FFA and plan to help the chapter succeed this year. At the state conference, students are learning about all upcoming state events while interacting with members from other chapters across the state. Clewiston FFA is excited to see what the 2014/15 year has in store. Learning to do, doing to learn, earning to live, living to serve.

Respect: It’s Biblical and Can Really HelpBY REV. SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martin’s ChurchOne of my sources commented on some of the faiths that permeate in the mid-East these days by noting, “They haven’t had their Martin Luther yet.” He meant that Christianity had undergone a great reformation in the past as a result of much soul-searching and revision with what the world had come to discover in the Renaissance. Maybe the universe wasn’t three stories; maybe it would be better to worship in a language understood by all, maybe it would be better to break down some of the separation between the clergy and those they served. The result? A “re-formed” faith, not only for those who separated, but also for those who stayed. In a dialog between the Lord and John, John seems upset and goes to Jesus. “Master” said John, “We saw a man driving out demons in your name and we tried to stop him because he is not one of us (Luke 9:49).” The answer was “Do not stop him, “ Jesus said, “for whoever is not against you is for you. (v.50).” The disciples were concerned about which of them would be the greatest (v46-48). The answer is that “…he who is least among you all -he is the greatest.” Apparently, power struggles were known in Jesus’ day, as well as concerns about just who had the inside track and who had the right “brand loyalty.” My own experience has shown me many of these issues are still with us. One of my former acquaintances suddenly found herself facing a terminal illness. She was someone I knew to be of a different faith tradition than my own and she started to talk about the strength she was now getting from what she believed. It was different than what I believed, yes, but doubtless something that was giving her strength as she faced a major crisis in her life. She had my utmost respect and I offered whatever comfort I could to her. If I could offer anything in the way of helping her “cast out the demons” she was facing, it was hers to have… “whoever is not against you is for you.” She eventually succumbed to a tragic illness; my comfort was in knowing that she found her own way and it served her well. Occasionally, I have been invited to join other religious bodies. My question is, “What do you have to offer?” To date, it is nothing that I do not already have in my own household of faith. John was concerned when people who were suffering were helped by someone serving them in the Lord’s name, but because they were not known to John, they were thus suspect to him. Jesus resolves the problem (“Other sheep I have of this fold. I must bring them also. They too will listen to my voice…”John 10:16). There have been special moments when I’ve enjoyed dialogging with those whose traditions are unfamiliar to me, causing me to see things from another perspective, causing me to rethink some of my own points of view, letting me know about why we’re different and what we share in common. These are the moments that are best taking place when there is no crisis or when someone is not facing a great dif culty in their lives. I believe it comes from the kind of respect that Jesus is telling John when He talks of not worrying about “who is the greatest” or “who is against you.” In the meantime, the “Reformation” still goes on. We see people who respect one another’s differences, openly dialog and search for truth, carry out what we are called to do when “differences” or “greatest” becomes an issue. With people being executed in our world today simply because they do not believe what some invading force thinks they ought to believe; there is still much to learn in the world. Thanks be to God, our teacher resolved the issue 2,000 years ago. His lesson is there for all of us, both at home and abroad. 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.Community Christian EventsCLEWISTON — The Red Barn Gospel Sing will be held at the Community Christian Church during the summer months.

SUMMER SPECIAL! Obituaries Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 10, 2014 6 READING A NEWSPAPER MAKES YOU A MORE INFORMED AND INTERESTING PERSON. No wonder newspaper readers are more popular! BY MARGARET ENGLAND Hendry-Glades AudubonThe wild Muscovy Ducks are native to the tropical climates of Central and South America, Mexico and southern Texas. The heavier-bodied feral form is found in and around urban centers from New York southwest to Texas, and in Washington and California. They are also found in almost every county in Florida. Muscovy Ducks were intentionally released in the United States as an ornamental species in urban parks and lakes. Today, these ducks are also found in zoos, neighborhoods and farms. Muscovy Ducks are a member of the duck family (Anatidae) which includes geese and swans. The feral species is easily recognized by their stocky bodies and black, white or mottled plumage. Females are more drab in appearance than the males. Males have red facial bumps on the face over the eyes and at the base of the bill. These warty bumps are often reduced or absent in the females. These large ducks have long attened tails and large claws. Muscovy ducklings are yellow with buff brown on their tails and wings. Muscovy Ducks do not “quack.” The male’s call is a loud, dry hiss and the female makes a quiet coo. Feral Muscovies are often found in large ocks around lakes and parks where they forage for aquatic vegetation, seeds, acorns and invertebrates. Feeding these birds is banned in many areas in Florida in order to prevent the birds from becoming a nuisance and to help reduce the droppings near residential areas. These bird nest in tree cavities, on the ground, under shrubs and even on balconies. The female lays eight to 16 cream-colored eggs which are incubated for about ve weeks. The males often protect the ducklings and will help them search for food. Inland Birding: Muscovy Duck PHOTO/ KENNETH COLE SCHNEIDERMuscovy Duck and ducklings

House Bill 1049, by Rep. Raschein and Sen. Abruzzo, created an additional opportunity for divers to stay safe. Effective July 1, when in the water, they may display a buoy with a series of divers-down symbols as an alternative to the traditional divers-down ag. The buoy can be three or four-sided and must have a divers-down symbol of at least 12-by12-inches displayed on each of the at sides. Such a buoy should help divers, especially those in open waters, be more visible to passing boats. Divers-down symbols displayed onboard a boat must still be a ag at least 20-by-24-inches and displayed at a high point where it is visible from any direction. Divers may still use a divers-down ag of at least 12-by-12-inches on a oat when towed along with them while in the water. Being highly visible to boaters is critical to keeping divers and snorkelers safe in the water. "Divers should stay within the required distance of their ag or buoy 300 feet in open water and 100 feet in rivers, inlets and channels, as that's where boat operators are expecting you to be. Boat operators should do their best to stay these same distances away from any diversdown ag or buoy, and all boats being operated within these distances from a divers-down symbol must be slowed to no more than idle speed," said Capt. Tom Shipp, who leads the FWC's boating safety efforts. "This will ensure everyone gets to enjoy the water safely." With bay scallop season which just opened on June 28 and spiny lobster mini-season which begins July 30 lots of divers and snorkelers are taking advantage of the opportunity to get in the water. "This is a great time for boaters and divers alike to remember to pay close attention to their surroundings and be safe," Shipp said. For more information about the changes, the bill language can be viewed on the House of Representatives website. FWC Provides Guidance on Enhanced Boating Safety Legislation

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 10, 2014 8 BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthPredicting disasters or hazardous incidents is impossible. The next major event can come at any moment. Preparation and planning for the unexpected is the only course of action. On June 11, more than 70 emergency responders from the region joined forces with Glades County Public Safety, Local Emergency Planning Council, Florida Department of Health in Glades County and Wedgworth Fertilizer, Inc. to participate in an “Emergency Response Exercise.” After months of plan ning, Glades County Public Safety, along with support from responders in the region, demonstrated the ability to operate in response to a major incident that included scenarios involving real people with simulated serious injuries. The Planning Team worked closely together with responders and the private industry to provide a learning environ ment that mirrored a realistic incident. The Florida Department of Health in Hendry and Glades Counties coordinated “actors” by enlisting the help from 16 nursing students at Florida Gulf Coast University. Some of the students role-played as “victims,” while others assisted with rapid triage. Kelly Brantley, judicial assistant for Glades County, also volunteered to role-play in the exercise. The simulated incident occurred at Wedgworth Fertilizer, Inc. in Moore Haven, but also included the Florida Department of Health in Glades County, which was used as a “medical staging site.” The responders and other exercise participants trained in areas that focused on emergency management, healthcare, the re service, law enforcement, emergency medical services and hazardous materials. Following a hazardous event, response or ganizations specializing in a variety of skills are mobilized to assist in the rescue and recovery. “This type of training al lows responders to deploy to an unfamiliar loca tion and into an unknown situation and manage the inci dent on arrival,” said John Gibbons, planner and program manager for Hazardous Waste/Materials Program of the Southwest Florida Regional Planning Council. “This was as realistic as you can make it. You respond like you train,” said Bob Kosiba, exercise facilitator and regional planner/consultant for the Florida Department of Health. “If you don’t have reality in training, when something happens you’re not going to be as prepared. We learned from each other and shared ideas. This training exercise provided the opportunity to learn together, get a common picture and spend time strengthening professional relationships.” BY PAT DOBBINS Florida Department Of HealthHot temperatures and high humidity mean lots of sweating, and this can increase your chance of dehydration. To avoid becoming dehydrated, it is important to drink plenty of uids, especially water -even if you don’t feel thirsty. Depending upon your physical activity and heat exposure during hot weather, it’s a good idea to drink even more water. According to health experts, uid requirements vary from person to person. Please keep in mind that people with medical conditions, such as kidney disease, heart disease, or those who require a uid restricted diet or who have problems with uid retention, should consult a physician before increasing their uid consumption. Knowing the signs of dehydration and knowing what to do, is very important. Signs of dehydration can include excessive thirst, headache, weakness, feeling dizzy or light headed, nausea, muscle cramps, feeling overly tired or sluggish and feeling irritable. You may also experience decreased urine levels and/or urine that has a strong odor or is darker than normal. You may experience all, some or none of these signs, so the best way to avoid dehydration is to monitor your water or uid intake, modify your physical activity or reduce the length of activity according to weather conditions. Don’t wait for the symptoms of dry mouth, ushed skin, headaches, lightheadedness or fatigue. You should prevent dehydration by drinking plenty of uids throughout the day. Help to avoid becoming dehydrated by staying out of the direct sun, wearing light-colored and loosetting clothing, limiting physical activity and using fans whenever possible. If you suspect you are becoming dehydrated, get to a cool or shady area and sip cool water or uids. If your condition does not improve, seek medical attention immediately, Another heat-related illness is heat exhaustion. Heat exhaustion can develop after exposure to high temperatures and inadequate or unbalanced replacement of uids. The elderly, people with high blood pressure or people who work or exercise in a hot environment are more prone to heat exhaustion. The warning signs of heat exhaustion vary, but may include heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, dilated pupils, tiredness or weakness, feeling dizzy or lightheaded, headache, nausea or vomiting, fainting, skin that feels cool and moist, pulse rate that is fast and weak and breathing that is fast and shallow. If heat exhaustion is untreated, it may progress to heat stroke. Seek medical attention immediately if your symptoms last longer than one hour, if symptoms become more severe or if you have heart problems or high blood pressure. Try to cool down by drinking cool, nonalcoholic beverages, resting in an air-conditioned environment, taking a cool shower, bath or sponge bath and wearing lightweight clothing. You should also try to prevent sun burn, which damages the skin’s ability to dissipate heat. Have a safe and healthy summer!

Your Home-Based Business: Getting Started 50 percent worth. Hendry County's Engineer Shane Parker explained that because all of the solid waste that isn't recycled in the county is burned for fuel, the county earns the renewable energy credits from the state. The solid waste that is set out curbside by residents and businesses is taken to the transfer stations in either Clewiston and LaBelle, where it is then shipped to a Waste to Energy station in Lee County, explained Parker. That waste is then incinerated and converted into fuel. As for traditional recycling rates, Hendry County recycled 20 percent of its municipal solid waste, 18 percent less than the state average of 38 percent. Though Hendry County's total recycling rate is impressive, the county still has work to do to meet the state's 75-percent recycling goal by 2020, which was established by the Florida Legislature in 2008. The report highlights that in order to help meet the statewide 75-percent goal within the next six years, commercial recycling efforts should be increased. According to the report, commercial municipal solid waste accounts for about 55 percent of total municipal solid waste collected, however, only about half of the commercial solid waste is being recycled. To learn more about the statewide 75-percent recycling goal, visit the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's website at http:// www.dep.state. .us. Below are the top ranking counties for total recycling and traditional recycling rates. Top 10 Counties for Total Recycling Rates: 1. Hillsborough, 73 percent 2. Lee, 70 percent 3.

Busin originally envisioned the program being speci cally for children with autism, but as the program evolved, it opened itself up to any child with any kind of special need -no questions asked. "We don't ask for any paperwork. There doesn't need to be a diagnosis. We don't ask. I think parents get enough of that. The thing is, just come. If you feel you want to be here, then come and be a part of it," said Busin. "Even if the child is not exceptional,' they're learning empathy towards other kids and it gives these kids a chance to socialize." The program sees kids from all over the area, including LaBelle and Glades County, coming to the Clewiston Fairgrounds to join in on the therapeutic fun. The program is free for participants, thanks to the generosity of volunteers who bring their horses, saddles and other riding necessities to the fairgrounds each month. Commissioner Turner, Clewiston residents Lisa Kelley and Laura Smith, and the Blackwell Family, of LaBelle, are among some of the dedicated volunteers who devote their time and resources to the program. But the program would be nothing without the exceptional children who participate each month, and the support they receive from their families and friends as they make their way around the rodeo arena atop the gentle horses. "There just something about an animal," said Busin, about the therapy that horseback riding provides children with special needs. "It can be a challenge to get them [the kids] here, but once they're here, they're hooked. It's rare that we have a kid come once and not return." Even as the earth began to darken, children were still waiting anxiously to take their turn around rodeo grounds. Climbing onto the horse with the help of a volunteer and a small step stool, the exceptional kids took a special ride around the arena one last time before the sun set on that July 1 evening. "This program has really been a blessing," said Busin.

SCHOOL BRIEFS BY PATTY BRANT Special to e Clewiston NewsFor the past 23 years, Judge James D. Sloan has served local people as their County Judge. On July 1, about 11:30 a.m. Governor Rick Scott called Judge Sloan with this message: “I’m pleased to appoint you to the 20th Circuit Court bench.” The appointment will take effect Sept. 1. His appointment will run until 2016, when his name will be added to the ballot for the 20th Circuit. Circuit Court judges must be reaf rmed by the voters every six years. Judge Sloan submitted the lengthy, detailed, 24-page application in May. The next step was a nine-member 20 Circuit Court Judicial Nomination Commission interview in Orlando with each potential judge, followed by individual interviews with the governor’s staff. The governor had to make his choice to ll the opening within 60 days, The circuit court judgeship in Hendry County opened up when Circuit Judge Sherra Winesett, Lee County, retired, setting several lateral moves into motion. Judge Beth Krier, of Collier County, opted to move to the open seat in Lee and Judge Joseph Foster, from Charlotte County, decided to move into the Collier slot. With current Circuit Judge Donald H. Mason in LaBelle seeking to move on to Charlotte County, Judge Sloan received the position he wanted here in Hendry/Glades. Judge Sloan said that given his experience in so many different types of cases, he does not foresee much dif culty for him as he rises to the Circuit Court level. He has served as acting circuit judge, presiding over a $1-million civil case and a second degree murder trial. In fact, he’s presided over every type of case except one a case involving the death sentence. Circuit level cases include criminal misdemeanors over $15,000, as well as felonies. Felonies are punishable by over one year in the Department of Corrections and cases that could result in the death penalty. Judges are required to be certi ed before they can pass the death sentence. In addition, Judge Sloan will continue to hear juvenile cases, at least for a while. He has been hearing juvenile cases for 22 years. Judge Sloan said he’s comfortable with the appointment, commenting, “The time is right.” The Hendry County judgeship is now going through the same application process as the circuit did, so that it will likely be six to eight weeks after Sept. 1 when it is completed. After Sept. 1, Judge Sloan said he will handle both county and circuit cases until a new county judge is sworn in. Over the past 23 years, he said he’s seen many Circuit Court judges come and go. The longest tenure in Hendry County was four years, while the shortest was just six weeks. “I’ve lived here since 1983,” he said. “I want to be here.” Because Hendry County is his choice, he believes it’s a great t. His appointment will go a long way in adding stability to local Circuit Court proceedings, which will then be able to fall into a pattern, he said. He feels he can contribute experience in all types of cases. When Judge Sloan comes to court, he said, “I come prepared. I read the case. I know why we’re there. It can streamline the process.” He added that his years on the bench have taught him how to listen to both verbal and nonverbal communication. During his career, he said he has worked with very young lawyers and a lot of pro se cases, in which people act as their own lawyer. Because he understands that things don’t always go as planned, he feels he has the perspective and patience required to preside over very serious cases. He notes that he received a lot of support from people that he doesn’t even know about, but feels Hendry County’s concerns have been heard in Tallahassee. There will be a formal swearing-in ceremony, probably in September, for Judge Sloan, followed by one for the new Hendry County Judge just a few weeks later. A joint circuit court will be convened for both. The 20th Circuit covers a ve-county area: Lee, Collier, Charlotte, Hendry and Glades. Local Judge Appointed to State Circuit Court BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsThe Clewiston Ministerial Association is a cornerstone in the community, providing services to people in need and bringing together the area’s churches to make those services possible. The association has a hand in the community Thanksgiving service, the Christmas Cantata, the National Day of Prayer and the Clewiston High School Baccalaureate, not to mention helping with relief whenever disasters affect the area. But the association was once a shadow of its former self, before being revived nearly 12 years ago thanks to the efforts of a then-brand-new face in the community: Pastor John Hicks. Touted as the community’s pastor by City Commissioner Mali Gardner, Pastor Hicks recently left the city of Clewiston to begin a new mission at a new church in a new community. The impact of his 12-year-long ministry at First United Methodist Church, however, will likely be felt for many years down the line. Glimpses of the ministerial association’s revival could be seen merely three months after Pastor Hicks arrived in Clewiston in 2002, when he brought the community’s churches together to take part in a special memorial service on the rst anniversary of the September 11 attacks. That fall, Pastor Hicks was nominated president of the association and the planning began for a new tradition: a community Thanksgiving dinner, complete with leftovers to take home, as well as a joint Thanksgiving Day service held at one of the churches in the community. This tradition still holds strong 12 years later. As the years went on, the association began working with the churches in the Harlem community. At the time when the Clewiston association was again taking root, the Harlem community had their own ministerial association, as well. Through the years, the two associations began working more closely with each other, and now hold the Thanksgiving Day service, as well as the Easter Sunrise Service, on alternating years at a church in either Clewiston or Harlem. The ministerial association also worked hard to provide relief to the city and community after several hurricanes hit in 2004, and again in 2005 when Hurricane Wilma devastated homes and businesses in the area. First United Methodist Church became a distribution center and provided much-needed supplies to victims and surrounding churches. Pastor Hicks said his biggest challenge as president of the ministerial association was getting everyone together for the rst time and building bridges of trust. As a new pastor in a new town, he said he had to go out and meet people face to face to make contacts when he rst moved here, which helped form a basis of trust and friendship that lasted his 12 years as president and pastor in Clewiston, and will surely continue well into the future. Having been so instrumental in the reformation of the ministerial association, many wondered who would take over as president after Pastor Hicks left for his new call to service. At the June 16 City Commission Meeting, Pastor Hicks announced that Pastor Alan Koch, of Faith Lutheran Church, would be the new president of the ministerial association, a decision that came after hours of prayer and discussion among the members of the association. Pastor Koch was humbled by the appointment and said he would do everything he could for the town that he loves. Pastor Koch arrived in Clewiston ve years ago after completing a ministry in a town outside of Los Angeles, Calif. Having grown up on a farm in Auburn, Mich., Pastor Koch said it felt like coming home when he moved to Clewiston and that it was refreshing to be in a community with a positive outlook on religion and a willingness to work together. As the new president of the ministerial association, Pastor Koch admitted he has no grandiose plans for its future, but intends to continue down the path that Pastor Hicks started, at least for the rst year. “The rst major thing is structuring our meetings to make sure everybody is involved. The rst big gathering is the community Thanksgiving service. We’ll get that all put together and, for the rst year, we’ll follow the pattern set by Pastor John and we’ll see where we go,” said Pastor Koch. That is not to say that Pastor Koch doesn’t have ideas of his own for the association, but he said it would be too early to talk about those plans without rst discussing them with the other members. “The most important thing is to keep all of the churches working together in the Clewiston area. That’s the key to it,” said Pastor Koch. Pr. Koch Takes Over as Ministerial PresidentPlans to follow former president’s lead to keep churches working together Lennard Cobb GOVERNOR RICK SCOTT CALLED JUDGE SLOAN WITH THIS MESSAGE: “I’M PLEASED TO APPOINT YOU TO THE 20TH CIRCUIT COURT BENCH.”JUDGE SLOAN SAID HE’S COMFORTABLE WITH THE APPOINTMENT, COMMENTING, “THE TIME IS RIGHT.”

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 10, 2014 20 were going to leave the scene. It is reported that Silva also told of cers he chased after the other driver and took her keys so she could not leave the scene. When of cers began speaking with the driver of the sedan, they allegedly started to question her sobriety. Of cers reportedly noticed that the driver, 32-year-old Erica Williams, was slurring her words and was having trouble focusing on direct questions. They also noted that Williams' hair and clothes "appeared disheveled" and she was attempting to drink a gallon of milk which was spilling down her face and onto her shirt, according to the report. Williams also had three small children in the back of her car at the time of the accident -a 10 year old, an eight year old and a 16 month old. Of cers noted in the report that the children did not seem to be strapped down by any restraints. Williams' uncle arrived shortly thereafter to drive both the car and the children to a relatives' house. Despite of cers' assumptions, Williams was adamant that she had not been drinking, had not taken anything and was not going to "say nothing" to the of cers, according to the report. She allegedly refused to submit to Field Sobriety Exercises, was placed under arrest for driving under the in uence and transported to the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce, where she allegedly refused to take a breath test. Williams was charged with DUI and property damage, as well as refusal to submit to a lawful breath test. Silva, the driver of the van, was also arrested for driving without a valid license, but was released on scene with a notice to appear at the Hendry County Courthouse.
