BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsLaw enforcement agencies from Hendry and Lee counties were sent on a manhunt yesterday after it was reported three teenage boys had allegedly stolen a car from Lee County and taken it on a joy ride that eventually ended in Pioneer Plantation in Central Hendry County. The three young men reportedly drove the vehicle from Lee County to Pioneer Plantation, where they stopped at the Shell Station located at the intersection of Hendry Isles Boulevard and State Road 80. The three young men allegedly attempted to rob another man by putting a gun to his side, demanding money from the victim. It is reported the victim refused to give up his bank bag and instead grabbed the barrel of the gun. The trigger of the gun was reportedly pulled three times but failed to re. The three young men then ran into a wooded area and were ushed out BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsIt was a battle of the millage rates at the last city commission meeting held on July 21, as commissioners reached a stalemate deciding whether or not to set the 2015 millage rate higher than the current rate. The night's vote would not have set the millage rate in stone -necessarily. Commissioners were setting a tentative millage rate, one that could be lowered later on in the budget season. That scenario would only ring true, however, if commissioners voted to set a higher millage rate than the current 2014 rate of 6.1957 mills. If they chose to set the 2015 millage rate at the current rate, they could only lower the rate later on, not raise it. With only four commissioners present at the night's meeting, two were adamant about not raising the millage rate at all, while the other two were in favor of leaving a little wiggle room. Commissioner Kristine Petersen, who would have been the deciding vote, was unable to attend the night's A small group gathered inside the Clewiston Sub Of ce on July 17 to watch as Jon Basquin was sworn in as the interim District 5 School Board member.

Basquin already quali ed to run for the District 5 seat in the election and said he believes his appointment will help him come August. "When I spoke to Gov. Scott, he told me he had received quite a few phone calls from good people inquiring and requesting that I be appointed," said Basquin. "I believe it will help me in the election."

COMMUNITY NEWS AND INFORMATION BY LISA SCHNIRRING CIDRAP NewsThe number of new chikungunya infections in the Caribbean region grew at a brisk pace last week, with most of the activity centered in the Dominican Republic and neighboring Haiti, as travel to those destinations continues to be linked to a number of imported cases in other countries. The outbreak total climbed to 306,837 suspected and con rmed cases, an increase of 42,393 from the previous week, according to a Jul 3 update from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO). Nearly 30,000 of the new infections were reported in the Dominican Republic, while about 12,000 of them were reported in Haiti. The two countries make up the island of Hispaniola. The European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said today in its weekly communicable disease threat update that most of the affected areas continue to report more cases, but the situation is especially severe on Hispaniola. New cases in Central America In Central America, health of cials in El Salvador reported 212 more suspected or con rmed cases, boosting its total so far to 1,520, according to PAHO. Elsewhere, El Salvador remains under a national emergency with thousands of suspected cases, PAHO said. It added that the outbreak is still expanding, having reached Central and South America. Over the past several weeks, three South American countries have reported local chikungunya cases: Guyana, Suriname, and French Guiana. So far it's unclear if a con rmed case in Costa Rica is local or imported, and health of cials in Venezuela aren't sure if all 12 chikungunya cases detected there are imported, the ECDC said. Guatemala is investigating a possible case, the agency added. According to PAHO's update, the number of deaths in the outbreak held steady at 21. Travel-linked cases rise steadily Two US territories were among the areas reporting new locally acquired cases. Puerto Rico reported 89 more suspected or con rmed chikungunya cases, lifting its total to 228. The US Virgin Islands reported 3 more con rmed cases, edging its total to 7. Countries in the PAHO region reported 51 more imported chikungunya infections, raising the total so far to 162. Most of the cases were from areas that have already reported the disease in travelers. The exception is the Cayman Islands, which reported its rst travel-linked illness. Most of the imported cases continue to be reported from the United States, which has 114 chikungunya infections. Meanwhile, the ECDC said several other countries have recently reported chikungunya infections in people with a travel history to the outbreak areas. For example, it said that Greece on Jul 3 reported a case in a patient who was hospitalized in Athens after returning from a trip to the Dominican Republic.

SAMUEL S. THOMAS, PH. D.+ Saint Martin’s ChurchThere’s that television ad that tells people that words can hurt. It’s about a cowboy and his girl, and she reaches out to him. He looks down from his horse and says, “I’m a loner, and loners have to be alone.” He rides off, not getting too far before being thrown off of his horse. I thought that “maybe his horse is a loner too, and the horse wants to be left alone!” In fact, there is something about being alone that goes against the grain with many people. Penal systems recognize that, somehow, it’s worse to be locked up in “solitary con nement.” Parents isolate children: “Go to your room.” It used to be punishment (before cell-phones, instant messaging, Tweet, Twitter, e-mail, Skype, and the rest of it). Maybe today, “Turn it off” will come to mean what once, “Go to your room” meant. There’ll be no computer, cell phone and staring at the screen. According to an account I heard, Albert Einstein was supposed to be met by an acquaintance who was late, leaving Einstein standing on the corner by himself alone for an unexpected interval. When the acquaintance nally arrived and apologized, Einstein replied “It’s alright, I was working.” He seemed to understand the concept of “redeeming the time” and putting idle moments to good use. He apparently wasn’t bothered by being alone. I remember some of the “idle moments” and forced times of inactivity and how I put them to good use. For many of us, and especially those living in communities such as one nds in the Glades, out-of-town trips are often (1) necessary and (2) long. What to do? Loneliness is maybe our inability to ll up time and leaves us with some anxiety about it all when we nd ourselves in a kind of “vacuum.” Instead, I’ve noted that when I’m busy, whether alone or with others, time ies by and there is no problem or anxiety. Jesus begins His ministry away from others; with 40 days in the wilderness and turns out to be confronted by the devil (Matthew 4:1-11). He ends it by leaving His disciples and going off with only a few others (Matthew 26:37; 26:42, 26:44; Mark 14:32ff; Luke 22:41) and perhaps being totally by Himself. Time is spent praying and preparing, being busy. He is by Himself but He is not alone. It is in the “redeeming the time” by being busy and doing what needs to be done that loneliness can be welcomed as a chance to accomplish, make headway, think things through, be about the business that needs to be done. It was early in my life that I learned never to say, “I’m bored!” Whenever my mother heard such a remark, she could instantly generate a list of things for me to do, and the majority were not things I would have chosen! There were rooms to clean up, things to put away, errands to run, items to be picked up, lots of things to keep me occupied. The lesson was that I was responsible for my own activities and that would take care of any idle moments or “boredom.” I didn’t always need others around but moments alone meant seeking something that would keep me occupied and interested on my own. Loneliness was time to be redeemed; time to put to use doing something worthwhile. Idle time was a gift to be used wisely. Hobbies and evening classes, knowing that moments waiting could be lled by reading or writing, doing something for someone who needed an errand or something repaired, praying and meditating; lots and lots of things to do to redeem the time and never be alone. I’ve often wondered about our current craze of instant contact on cell phones and other portable devices. Usually the conversation seems to be about ... nothing, really! Maybe it’s time once more that we learn to stand our own company and make better use of time, redeem it. Silence and being alone are not really an enemy; idleness, yes, loneliness, is a matter of choice. 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.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 24, 2014 8 BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News“Even though we were staying in a house with no running water, they had electricity so we could all watch the World Cup with everyone,” said Rachel Hoover, a recent graduate of Clewiston High School, as she described one of her best memories from a recent mission trip to Haiti. Rachel was one of a six Clewiston residents who traveled to a small Haitian community to provide medical services to those in need. The group left for Les Cayes, Haiti on June 21 where they performed basic medical tests in a makeshift triage center located in the mid-sized coastal town. Hendry Regional Medical Center’s former chief medical of cer, Dr. Michael White, his wife Karin, their two children, Rachel and her younger brother Levi all participated in the mission trip, made possible by the nonpro t organization Missions of Love Haiti. Dr. White was the attending physician on hand and with the help of the other volunteers, saw approximately 470 patients until supplies ran out at the end of the week-long mission trip. The group also donated medical supplies, clothes and shoes to the community as part of the mission. Rachel said her favorite part of the trip was getting to know the people in the community so well. Apart from watching the World Cup with community members, the group attended a kindergarten graduation while staying in Les Cayes. The graduation was especially meaningful because it was the school’s rst completed year since being built by Missions of Love Haiti volunteers. A total of about 50 kindergarten students made the walk down the graduation aisle that day. Rachel has been part of many mission trips, including a trip to Ethiopa last year. Though she said she doesn’t necessarily want to be a nurse, she enjoyed being able to help people in that capacity. “I enjoyed being able to do those things to help people in that way,” said Rachel of helping to perform medical tests with Dr. White. “and to be able to see so many people in the clinics with just one doctor. Joshua Martinez Jr. was excited to see the stock car roar into the parking lot and stop in front of his new art store, Art by Josh and More, on July 19. Joshua was even more excited when the owner of that stock car slipped out of the driver side window and walked up to shake his hand. Clewiston resident Tommy Hill has been racing throughout Florida for the past 17 years. Starting out as a young teenager, Hill learned the ropes from his father, Rodney, who also grew up racing. Hill races mostly at his hometown track, the Hendry County Speedway, but travels around Florida to tracks in Ocala, Okeechobee and Tampa, to name a few. On July 25 and 26, Lake City is holding the Autism 40 to raise money for autism awareness. To contribute to the cause, Hill’s stock car now dons a sticker supporting autism awareness and he hopes to race in the two-day charity event, which will donate all proceeds to the Autism Society of Greater Orlando. Hill paid a visit to Joshua and his family last weekend to show off his new sticker and to chat about a disorder that affects so many lives in Clewiston, Florida and the country as a whole. To help families affected by autism spectrum disorder in the area, Joshua’s mom, Cathy Martinez, is asking anyone interested in joining a support group to please contact her at 863-805-0074 or 863-228-8943.

The Green Heron is one of the few tool-using birds who will throw things into the water to attract sh. It is a bird species of least concern found throughout Florida in most freshwater and some saltwater habitats and in Florida's urban areas. Many winter south of the United States, but will nest between March and July throughout Florida. This small stocky dark heron has long yellowish legs and a long, dark, pointed bill. Its long neck is often kept pulled in tight to its body. This wading bird is shorter than most herons. Adults have a glossy, greenish-black cap, a greenish back and wings that are grey-black grading into green or blue. Their chestnut neck has a white line down the front. Juveniles are duller, with the head sides, neck and underparts streaked brown and white. Alarm calls are an explosive "skwow." Other calls include a series of "kukkuk-kuk-kuk" notes. Their diet consists of insects, spiders, snails, crustaceans, frogs and sh. They are often seen foraging from branches above water or standing motionless at water's edge waiting for sh to approach. They will nest in colonies with other herons and ibises, singly or in colonies with a few other pairs. Their nest is a basket of sticks that is placed in a small tree or shrub usually above water. Both parents take turns incubating two to six eggs which hatch in about 20 days. At 30 to 35 days of age, the young are no longer dependent upon their parents.STA-5 Trip InformationFor information about the upcoming STA-5 bird trips, contact Margaret England at sta5birding@embarqmail.com or call 863-674-0695 or 863-517-0202.

The Seminoles recently invited a select group of cattle industry experts and journalists to the Brighton Seminole Reservation, where the Tribe maintains the largest portion of its cattle herd across a vast 36,000-acre reservation. The group of nearly two dozen industry leaders enjoyed a series of presentations on the Tribe’s cattle operation and Seminole Pride™ Beef, a brand developed to showcase the quality of the Tribe’s 100 percent Florida-bred cattle. The Tribe also used the opportunity to lay out its recent business expansion into Noble juices, OWV™ spring water, Intermezzo™ wine, fresh fruit, and seafood. Product samples were given out to underscore the reality of the Tribe’s extensive business diversi cation program, led by the Board of Directors of the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc. But the major focus of the day was on the Seminole Pride™ Beef business. The Seminoles run the nation’s fth-largest cow-calf operation with nearly 14,000 Brangus cattle, based on rankings from the National Cattlemen’s Association. According to Alex Johns, the Natural Resources Director for the Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc., and the current Treasurer of the Florida Cattlemen’s Association, the ancestors of the Seminoles were involved with cattle as early as the year 1521. Spanish explorers brought the rst cattle to Florida and the herds were broken up and lost when the British attacked Spanish settlements; Seminoles caught many of the roaming cows and bulls, which helped early Seminole communities ourish. A series of Seminole wars decimated the Tribe and its cattle, beginning in the 1830s and lasting nearly 50 years. Many Seminoles ed deep into the Everglades to avoid capture and relocation to “Indian Territory” in Oklahoma following passage of the U.S. Indian Removal Act. Seminoles who kept their cattle herds were easier to nd and capture since they travelled across the state with them so as not to overgraze; hundreds were forced from Florida as part of the “Trail of Tears.” During the Dust Bowl of the Great Depression, a herd of 700 cattle was shipped from the San Carlos Apache Reservation in southeastern Arizona to the newly-established Brighton Seminole Reservation, northwest of Lake Okeechobee. Although only a few hundred of the cattle survived the trek across the southern tier of states, those that did were the start of a herd that has grown and improved over time. About 5,000 head are in herds owned and managed by 67 individual tribal members and their families, who participate in a co-op program. The balance of the herd is managed by the Tribe on behalf of its 4,000 members. Of the 67 individual tribal members who raise cattle, 55 percent are women, in keeping with the Tribe’s matrilineal, clanbased culture. Until recently, the full focus of Seminole Tribe cattle operations has been birthing calves and raising them to an age of 10 months, when they have been shipped to western feedlots for growth over another eight to 12 months, before eventually being harvested and marketed. The focus has expanded in the last few years to include a branded beef production program under the name “Seminole Pride™,” recently embraced as the rst “Fresh from Florida” beef program. The Seminole tribe of Florida, Inc., and the Florida Department of Agriculture worked together to establish program criteria. The “Fresh from Florida” logo is now placed on all branded Seminole Pride™ beef. Only cattle born and raised in Florida, fed Florida corn and harvested in the state can be certi ed “Fresh from Florida,” a set of criteria that is more dif cult to meet than might be initially imagined. Only one harvester operates in Florida, and corn production is limited to acreage along the northern Florida border, where a few peanut farmers have begun to rotate corn into their production cycles. Seminole Pride™ Beef has developed a following among Florida food purveyors and chefs, who are serving it in more than a 100 of the state’s restaurants, including several highend restaurants, which use USDA Prime and USDA Choice-rated Seminole Pride™ Angus Beef for steaks, ribs, and roasts. “The biggest problem we have is feeding capacity,” says Alex Johns. “We need more feeding capacity and local corn produced in Florida.” Beef from about 100 head of cattle per week is moving through the supply chain under a contract with Cheney Brothers, a major Florida food distributor based in Riviera Beach. Demand is so strong that the Seminoles have formed an alliance with other Florida beef producers who measure up to strict standards of quality and meet speci c production quantity levels.

11 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 24, 2014 SUBMITTED PHOTO Steven Stewart was awarded the great distinction on Rotarian of the Year. The award is voted on by all members of the Club. Steven is one of the youngest members of Rotary and jumped in from day one to be of assistance to the Club. He currently holds the position as the Club’s Secretary and has volunteered for numerous events throughout our Community. The Rotary Club believes in service above self and enjoys giving back to our local community throughout the year. He is the Manager of the local Ace Hardware. The awarded was presented to Steven by the Club’s President for this year, Sherida Ridgdill. The Club meets every Monday at noon at the Clewiston Country Club and all invited to come for lunch and learn more about becoming a member of this Civic Organization. Rotarian of the Year meeting. Though she listened in over the phone for the duration of the nearly three-hour meeting, her vote could not be cast over the phone. And so commissioners Mali Gardner and Julio Rodriguez in one corner, with Mayor Phillip Roland and Commissioner James Pittman in the other. Commissioners Gardner and Rodriguez were opposed to raising taxes and said the city needed to be run more ef ciently in order to come in at or under budget. In addition, the city’s property values have increased slightly over the past year, meaning one mill would generate more money in 2015 than the same rate in 2014. With the rise in property values, the city would bring in just under $30,000 more this year than last. Mayor Roland and Commissioner Pittman disagreed with their fellow commissioners. Though they weren’t necessarily in favor of raising taxes, they said they did not want to lock in a millage rate at the night’s meeting that the commission wouldn’t be able to change later on in the budget talks. Worried that it may be necessary to raise the millage rate slightly in order to balance the budget -especially with some commissioners determined to give city employees a raise for the rst time in several years -Commissioner Pittman and Mayor Roland remained steadfast in their corner, while commissioners Rodriguez and Gardner held out in their own corners. Commissioners decided it would be best to hold a special meeting when Commissioner Petersen returned, so she could cast her vote. However, the day Commissioner Petersen was due to return was the same day Commissioner Rodriguez was due to leave town for two weeks. Since the tentative millage rate had to be in the property appraiser’s hands by Aug. 4, Mayor Roland acceded to commissioners Gardner and Rodriguez and voted to keep the 2015 millage rate the same as the current rate. Commissioners voted 3-1 to keep the rate at 6.1957 mills, with Commissioner Pittman voting against the motion. Mayor Roland said he hoped his decision wouldn’t come back to haunt him later on in the budget season. RATEContinued From Page 1 by K-9 units after a two and a half hour search, said Hendry County Sheriff Steve Whidden. All three suspects were taken into custody. Deputies are currently questioning two suspects in the case, and one has been charged: 17-yearold Charles Hill. Hill was charged with attempted armed robbery, attempted carjacking, possession of a stolen vehicle, aggravated assault with a rearm, destruction/tampering with evidence, petit theft and grand theft. Several agencies assisted in locating the suspects, including Hendry County deputies and K-9 units, Clewiston Police Department K-9 units, Lee County Sheriff’s Of ce deputies, K-9 units and helicopter, as well as the Florida Highway Patrol. Each agency played an important role in apprehending the suspects and Sheriff Whidden said they all did a great job. “They all did a wonderful job setting up an immediate perimeter. The K-9 units especially worked diligently. It was very hot and they were dredging through canals in very thick woods,” said Sheriff Whidden. “Everyone did a great job and I’m thankful for their hard work. And their promptness, which is why we were able to keep them [the suspects] in the perimeter.” ARRESTContinued From Page 1 church groups have given him the skills necessary for the job. “I have a passion to help the children of the community. And I want to show them that an average working guy can succeed,” said Basquin, who is self-employed. As a board member, Basquin hopes to bring back more vocational opportunities for students in Hendry County’s public schools. “College is a great tool for kids who want to go. But there’s a big majority of kids who will not go on to college. I think we need to show them that ultimately they’ll be in a vocation and we need to show them the skills and trades that are out there for them to make a living,” said Basquin. With the primary elections less than three weeks away, Basquin will serve as board member for three meetings, including one special meeting on July 21, before voters decide who they want to see in the District 5 seat.

Butler Clerk of Circuit Court Hendry County, Florida 466032 CN 7/3,10,17,24/2014 17 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee July 24, 2014 Average retail gasoline prices in Florida have fallen 4.7 cents per gallon in the past week, averaging $3.49/g Sunday, according to GasBuddy’s daily survey of 8,237 gas outlets in Florida. This compares with the national average that has fallen 3.3 cents per gallon in the last week to $3.57/g, according to gasoline price website GasBuddy.com. Including the change in gas prices in Florida during the past week, prices yesterday were 13.0 cents per gallon lower than the same day one year ago and are 11.8 cents per gallon lower than a month ago. The national average has decreased 10.7 cents per gallon during the last month and stands 10.4 cents per gallon lower than this day one year ago. “As expected, motorists continue to see average gasoline prices falling across much of the United States,” said GasBuddy.com Senior Petroleum Analyst Patrick DeHaan. “While the chorus is loud, some states in the Great Lakes did see a price jump last week, and as crazy as it sounds, it was due to retail prices falling faster than wholesale prices, likely spurred on by intense competition as prices dropped. Outside of the Great Lakes, prices have been gently falling in the last weekin every state but Wyoming, Ohio, and Indiana, but prices have begun moving lower again in the latter two, while Wyoming prices remain a bit dif cult to forecast due to Wyoming’s rural geography and low demand. Typically, price changes are felt slower in the Rockies because of lower demand provides a week or several buffer against changes in price taking place nationally,” DeHaan said. In all, 13 states saw average prices decline more than 5c/ gal. Gas Price Update Crossword Puzzle

All Seminole Tribe cattle are electronically tracked from birth as part of an innovative high-tech microchip program called Electronic Identi cation Tagging, which stores each calf's weight, health, diet, and medical history on a quarter-sized computer chip attached to a calf's left ear. It provides 100 percent traceability for Seminole cattle from "farm to fork." Technology is also important to the Seminole Tribe's calf-breeding program, which uses Brangus genetics to drive continual improvements in calf quality. Brangus is a cross between the Brahman cattle, which are heat tolerant, and the Angus, which have superior carcass quality. The Seminoles are also spreading their cattle interests to neighboring Georgia, where they have recently acquired Salacoa Valley Farms of Fairmount, Ga., northwest of Atlanta. Salacoa is noted for its top-quality registered pure bred Brangus cows and bulls, which are expected to be incorporated into the Seminoles' successful Florida breeding program. "I think we're growing at the right time," says Johns. "We're in full expansion mode at Salacoa."

Brangus is a cross between the Brahman cattle, which are heat tolerant, and the Angus, which have superior carcass quality. BY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston NewsCommissioners approved a resolution to apply for a low-interest loan through the State Revolving Fund at the beginning of their regular meeting on July 21. The loan will help pay the cost of rehabilitating the main lift station and is not to exceed $900,000. Commissioners also approved an agreement between the city and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) to improve the sidewalks near the elementary schools. The project will rebuild sidewalks from W.C. Owen, just south of the train tracks, up toward Central Elementary School and is paid for entirely by the FDOT grant. However, the city will be responsible for all maintenance costs in the future. Addressing the Public Works Department's need for a new garbage truck, commissioners approved a bid award to purchase a new frontend loader that can be used for both commercial and residential garbage pick up. The new truck will replace a 1999-model truck which, along with other old models now in circulation, cost the city upwards of $50,000 in maintenance each year. The new truck will be purchased using funds set aside by the Public Works Department for such events and will cost around $300,000. Next, commissioners discussed a possible $1-increase in mosquito control fees per month for city residents. Public Works Director Schef er said the increase would be necessary to continue mosquito control in the city for longer periods of time. Schef er said his department began spraying for mosquitoes in February 2014, nearly ve months sooner than previous years. Schef er blamed the warm, wet winter the area experienced beginning in 2013. Schef er also warned that the department has six to eight weeks worth of treatments left in its current budget. However, commissioners were not convinced that raising the fees would result in better mosquito control. Instead, commissioners asked Schef er and his staff to call around to other neighboring counties to see if the city is controlling mosquitoes as ef ciently as it could. Commissioners and Schef er also agreed that better coordination with the county's mosquito control efforts would positively effect the city's control. City Commission meetings are held on the third Monday of each month inside the commission chambers at Clewiston City Hall, with a workshop held on the preceding Thursday. Both meetings and workshops begin at 5 p.m. unless otherwise advertised. The community is welcome to attend each month. Commissioners Say ‘No’ to Raising Mosquito Fees

Lauderdale to compete at the Calvary Christian wrestling tournament crowning two champions and ve more earning medal honors. High School heavyweight Joe Hernandez led the way with three victories by way of pin, earning the gold medal in his weight class. "This was the rst time we saw Joe in live competition since the state tournament" said Coach Renaldy "I thought he did a pretty good job given the layoff." Tiger Pride veteran Hunter Barnes won ve matches on the day, including an overtime match to earn a gold medal. Frankie Barnes, Blake Barnes and Joseph Claro Jr. each earned bronze medals on the day winning three matches a piece in their respective division. "The win/loss stat line will show that Frankie lost his rst match and came back got third, but what the win/loss stats won't show is how he wrestled in that rst match," said the coaches. "He displayed a lot of technique that we've been drilling at practice and executed his moves very soundly against a quality opponent." Bryce Barnes and Javian Ortez each won four matches a piece earning a silver medal in their respective division. Other Tiger Pride wrestlers that competed in the tournament were Michael Perez, Andre Guajardo, Jesus Fonseca and High School wrestler Jared Escorcia. "All these guys looked good on Saturday with Michael and Andre earning their rst Tiger Pride victories," said the coaches.

A Clewiston resident received a scare when she came home from work to nd her side door open and someone possibly inside the house. The 51-year-old woman, who resides on Mississippi Avenue in Harlem, told Hendry County Sheriff's deputies that she came home from work at around 12:30 a.m. on July 13 when she noticed her side door was open. When she went inside the home, she reported she heard noises coming from the kitchen that sounded like someone rummaging through papers inside a drawer. The woman said she ran out of her home and across the street to call 911. When deputies arrived, they reported the house was ransacked and had things scattered throughout all three bedrooms and the kitchen. Deputies also reported the side door was kicked in and a screwdriver and ashlight were found at the house, which were submitted into evidence, according to an offense report released by the Hendry County Sheriff's Of ce. The woman said she did not notice anything was missing at the time, however, a at screen TV was reportedly taken off the bedroom wall and placed on a rocking chair in the living room. Deputies were able to lift ngerprints off the television and submitted them into evidence, according to the report. Woman Walks in on Alleged BurglaryBY MELISSA BELTZ e Clewiston News
