Utility improvements planned


Work continues on
South Bay water and
sewer systems

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
SOUTH BAY For a city that
struggled for some time with
regard to its utility systems, the
city of South Bay seems to be
making positive progress on
keeping regulatory agencies -


who previously hounded the
city with violations for the
sometimes antiquated systems
- at bay.
The consultant group work-
ing closely with the city, Govern-
ment Services Group Inc.
(GSG), presented the city com-
mission with an update of their
work to strengthen some of the
city's most important infrastruc-
ture systems.
At least one commissioner
initially skeptical of the compa-
ny's work has now said he fully


supports GSG's work with the
city.
According to a progress
report presented by GSG Vice-
President Charles E. Sweat,
between March 21 and April 28,
GSG was able to work with the
city staff on utility operations,
which included initial assess-
ments of the lift station, the
water treatment facilities and
the wastewater treatment facili-
ties.
The company helped facili-
tate interim lift station opera-


tions by coordinating an emer-
gency rehabilitation of lift sta-
tions to stop wastewater over-
flows in the city a problem
that city officials have worked to
avoid.
Mr. Sweat said he believes
the improvements to the utilities
department were desperately
needed to keep residents happy.
"During the last five weeks of
our involvement, progress has.
been made with the staff," said
Mr. Sweat. "They're accepting
change and making very posi-


tive strides to improve the quali-
ty of life in South Bay."
Mr. Sweat, who has served in
the role of consultant for the city
since March, said that progress
should continue in order to
avoid complaints from the
Department of Environmental
Protection, which the city has
had to deal with in the past.
"I think that with the cooper-
ation of the commissioners and

Small turn-out at domestic violence outreach meeting


Agencies
offer help

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Only nine
women attended a meeting on
domestic violence at St. Mar-
garet's Catholic Church in Clewis-
ton. Organizers had hoped to
reach a much larger crowed of
Hispanic women, but perhaps
anticipated the small numbers.
"Talking about the issues in a
group does help to get the servic-
es to where they are needed; the
issue of having the victims come
forward is the hard part," said
Ana Rivera, Hispanic Outreach
Specialist for Hendry/Glades
Behavioral Health Clinic. "A lot of


them are really scared of their
aggressor."
May is Domestic and Family
Violence Prevention Month. To
highlight the importance of
women speaking out and having
their voices heard Ms. Rivera is
reaching out to the community.
Ms. Rivera said she works with
many women very often who
have been the victims of domestic
violence women who some-
times show up with bruises on
their face.
Although the frequency with
which the crime is happening
seems to be on the rise, Ms.
Rivera struggles with the fact that
many women choose not to ask
anyone for help.
Within the Hispanic commu-
nity, women fearful of getting
their husbands in danger with


the law sometimes cope quietly
with the violence and rarely dis-
cuss the issue.
In the meeting held last
month, Crystal Santana, rural
victim advocate for Abuse Coun-
seling and Treatment Inc., an
agency out of Fort Myers,
stressed education.
"It's about information," Ms.
Santana said, "letting them know
that if they are the victim of
domestic violence they do have a
way out."
According to Ms. Santana, help
is available. Agencies like hers are
available to offer counseling serv-
ices and a supportive hand to
women, even helping them do
something as necessary as
requesting a protection order
from a judge to end the cycle of
violence.


Ms. Rivera encouraged
women to speak out rather than
remain silently intimidated.
"Increased awareness and
open discussion helps to bring
the domestic violence issue out
into the open," said Ms. Rivera.
"There are many organizations,
support groups and treatment
centers that people can contact,
help lines and 1-800 free call
numbers."
For more information about
domestic and family violence
prevention, contact Ana Rivera
at Hendry Glades Behavioral
Health Clinic at 983-1423, or
Crystal Santana at Abuse Coun-
seling and Treatment Inc. at 1-
800-500-1119, option 2.

and Arvis Donta Daniels, 20,
were arrested for trespassing.
Mr. Daniels was additionally
charged with possession of
cocaine with intent to distribute.
Deputies took the suspects to
the HCSO Station for booking,
where the substance inside the


white plastic bottle tested posi-
tive for cocaine, with a total
weight of 19 grams. All four sus-
pects were then transported to
the Hendry County Jail.
According to the HCSO Book-
ing records, Mr. Daniels is still in
custody with bond set at
$26,000. The other three sus-
pect, Addison, Love and Downs

Many communities apply for state land preservation grants


TALLAHASSEE A record
number of cities and counties
are requesting funding from
Florida Communities FCT (FCT),
the state's premier program for
helping local communities pre-
serve open space and recre-
ational areas, officials
announced recently. The FCT
received a total of 118 requests
for grants from 94 applicants
before the 2007 application peri-
od ended Wednesday afternoon.
"I am encouraged to see so
many of Florida's communities
making a commitment to pre-
serve their local treasures and
further the goals of their local
comprehensive plans," said
Department of Community
Affairs Secretary Tom Pelham,
whose agency administers the
FCT program. "The increased
number of local governments
requesting funds from FCT each
year illustrates a strong and con-
tinued need for this sort of com-
munity support."
Each year the FCT awards $66
million in Florida Forever fund-
ing for local land acquisition
projects throughout the state.
Cities, counties and nonprofit
environmental organizations
may receive FCT grants of up to
$6.6 million annually. Both the
number of applications and the
amount of funds requested in
the 2007 funding cycle are the
largest in the program's history.
One year ago, the FCT
received 115 applications from


"Florida Communities FCT provides needed fund-
ing for local governments as they pursue their
vision of stronger, greener, and healthier commu-
nities. Through FCT and Florida Forever, we are
making a positive impact on Florida's landscape."
Ken Reecy,
FCT Community Program Manager


85 local governments and non-
profit environmental organiza-
tions, asking for a total of $240
million in grants for local preser-
vation efforts. For the coming
year, local communities have
requested a combined $272 mil-
lion in Florida Forever funds
from FCT.
"Florida Communities FCT
provides needed funding for
local governments as they pur-
sue their vision of stronger,
greener, and healthier communi-
ties," said Ken Reecy, FCT Com-
munity Program Manager.
"Through FCT and Florida Forev-
er, we are making a positive
impact on Florida's landscape."
The 118 projects proposed for
FCT funding in the 2007 applica-
tion cycle will be evaluated and
scored over the next several
months. The Florida Communities
FCT Governing Board will convene
in September to determine which
projects will actually be funded.
Unlike other Florida Forever pro-
grams, ownership of land pre-
served through FCT grants remains


within the local community.
Since its inception in 1991,


Florida Communities FCT has
provided more than $600 million
to local governments to preserve
parks and recreational space.
DCA helps Florida's communi-
ties meet the challenges of
growth, reduce the effects of dis-
asters and invest in the commu-
nity. For more information

Community Affairs and the Flori-
da Communities FCT grant pro-

Bridge Realty opens in Downtown Shoppes


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE The mission
of Bridge Realty and Investments is
to attempt to enhance growth in
the Belle Glade area.
Opened in mid-February at the
Downtown Shoppes on Main
Street, the ultimate goal of the busi-
ness is to open offices throughout
the Lake Okeechobee region,
according to Florida Regional Man-
ager Regina Bohlen.
Other stores that make up the


Downtown Shoppes strip on Main
Street include an attorney's office,
the Belle Glade Bakery, City Sound
and Home D6cor.
Bridge Realty, which is a full
service broker that conducts serv-
ice throughout the state, will be
focusing on commercial and resi-
dential real estate in the Belle Glade
location. Ms. Bohlen said since its
inception at the Belle Glade office
in February, Bridge Realty has had
about 25 properties that are up for
sale in the Glades area.


Ms. Bohlen added she is opti-
mistic about growth opportunities
in the Glades area.
"I believe that all of the Glades
area will see a huge growth spurt
because people will come here to
get a relaxed lifestyle at an afford-
able price," said Ms. Bohlen.
Ms. Bohlen said the business is
currently in process of hiring local
realtors from around the Glades
area, as there are plans to open
another office in Pahokee in the
future.


Gregory Hill, the assistant man-
ager for the Belle Glade office, said
he is thrilled to be in the area and
would like to make an impact here.
Ms. Bohlen echoed the senti-
ment, saying that she wants to be
an asset to the Glades community,,
as she is currently learning the
make-up of the region.
"We want to make an impact'
on the Glades area for years to
come," said Ms. Bohlen. "We want
to be part of the community."

Attorneys General from 28 states warn Anheuser-Busch


TALLAHASSEE, Fla. Follow-
ing a collective initiative launched
recently to target underage drink-
ing, Attorney General Bill McCol-
lum today expressed his concern to
Anheuser-Busch Companies, Inc.
about its production and promo-
tion of alcohol energy drinks con-
taining caffeine and other stimu-
lants. Citing serious health
concerns, Attorney General McCol-
lum called on the company to pro-
vide readable warning labels that
alert consumers about the health
risks posed by these products.
"These alcoholic energy drinks
are promoted and packaged in a
way that is highly attractive in both

taste and appearance to underage
youth," Attorney General McCollum
said. "If Anheuser-Busch is going to
hold itself out as a partner in the
fight against underage drinking, the
company must stop marketing the
youthful appeal of these drinks."
In a letter to Anheuser-Busch,
Attorney General McCollum joined
27 other state Attorneys General in
noting that doctors and public
health professionals have warned
that combining caffeinated energy


drinks with alcohol a practice
popular among young people -
poses significant health and safety
risks. The stimulant in the energy
drink may skew a person's sense of
alertness without reducing the
adverse effect of the alcohol on that
person's motor skills or ability to
react quickly.
Anheuser-Busch's caffeinated
alcoholic beverages include
Spykes, TILT and Bud Extra. These
drinks with a caffeine kick are simi-
lar to non-alcoholic energy drinks
currently popular with youth under
21. They are primarily marketed on
websites particularly targeting a
younger audience.
Spykes is available only in fruit
and chocolate flavors and comes in
smaller plastic containers that are
attractive and brightly colored and
could be easily concealed in a pock-
et or purse. Advertisements for
Spykes, TILT and Bud Extra also tout
the products' caffeine content and
other additives that youth are likely
to associate with popular non-alco-
holic energy drinks. Spykes contains
12 percent alcohol by volume -
more than twice that of most fla-

vored malt beverages and beers.
Because they are designated as
flavored malt beverages, Spykes
and similar drinks can be sold inex-
pensively and in many states dis-
tributed to grocery stores and con-
venience stores where they may be
more readily seen and purchased
by underage drinkers than if they
were sold only in liquor stores.
Recently, the U.S. Alcohol and
Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau
made clear that it agreed with
these concerns, finding that sever-
al Spykes labels violate federal law.


Anheuser-Busch has agreed to
stop production and to replace the
product labels. The Attorneys Gen-
eral's letter to Anheuser-Busch
raised specific concerns about the
illegible health warnings on the
Spykes product and called upon
the company to act promptly to
address their remaining concerns
about the production and market-
ing of these products.

Anheuser-Busch is available at:

Mark Young debuts his first book, 'Devil's Pillar'


Mark Young, a former resident
of Okeechobee, Clewiston and
Belle Glade has put his name on his
first novel "Devil's Pillar."
"This is the first step of a long
journey," said Mr. Young. "Devil's
Pillar is a mainstream horror novel,
but with a very important mes-
sage."
Mr. Young said that ironically, it's
a message he has come to live
through himself.
"Underneath the story is a per-
sonal struggle for the main charac-
ter," he explained. "Representa-
tions of evil face us all in our every
day lives and can come in many dif-
ferent forms. But to lose your faith
in God, in love and more impor-
tantly in yourself, leaves you vulner-
able to those things that exist that
can eat away atyour soul."
He wrote the novel, which is
being published by Publish
America, several years ago, but


the lessons outlined within the
novel remain timeless chal-
lenges for us all.
"Only a faith in God, an
understanding of who you are as
a person, and
S a strong belief
that love truly
does conquer
all can bring
about needed
change in your
life," he said.
"Like my main
character, it's
Mark taken some
Young hard things to
make me
understand those lessons, but I
still believe that the impossible is
possible."
So what's next for the first-time
author?
"Devil's Pillar has an entertain-
ment value, but it's my one goal


in life to write the next great
American novel and I won't rest
until I have completed that goal,"
he said. "That project is in the
works, but I will also have anoth-
er novel completed by the end of
the year, which I am excited
about, as well. It is more along
the lines of mystical/mystery, but
underneath it all it is a story of
two people in love who have to
go through a lot to understand
what that love really is."


Mr. Young said that project is
also in the works, but has not
decided on an ending yet.
"I basically have two endings
to this particular story, but I
believe that this story is ongoing
and that the two main characters
still have much to learn as the
story begins to unfold. My charac-
ters are all a part of who I am.
How it ends is up to them and I'll
leave it at that," he said.
Devil's Pillar is a story about


Detective Sylvester Aliano, who
finds himself on the trail of a new
serial killer, which he quickly real-
izes is driven by an evil force that he
cannot yet comprehend.
In pursuit of the killer, Sylvester
takes a journey that leads him
directly into the path of the ultimate
evil. In order to succeed, he will
need to confront his own tragic
past and rediscover a faith in God
long abandoned.
With unlikely allies, Sylvester will


find himself in a fight for his own
life, sanity and soul. At the end of the
trail, a showdown awaits, a battle
between good and evil on evil's
home ground the Devil's Pillar.
The book is scheduled for
nationwide release in June, but is
now available at the Publish Ameri.
ca online bookstore at pub-
lishamerica.com.
Mr. Young also write a daily
satire column for liveweston.coil
entitled Tales from the Mark Side.


Shooting in Clewiston


leaves one dead


Officials continue
gathering information
about the crime

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office is investigat-
ing a shooting incident that left one
man dead at the Twin Lakes Trailer
Park over the weekend.
According to information pro-
vided by the sheriff's department,
the call was received shortly after
10 p.m. on Sunday, May 13, report-
ing that there was gunfire at a resi-
dence at the park and a person had
been shot.
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
deputies responded to the scene
minutes after the call was made
and found the victim, John Irvin
Tull, 44, lying on the floor of the
home.
.Mr. Tull appeared to have been
shot. Emergency workers treated


Mr. Tull's injuries, but were unable
to help him. He was pronounced
dead at the scene.
The police report did not indi-
cate how many times he was hit, or
where he was hit.
According to Devon Land, Chief
with the Sheriff's Office, the agency
has very few leads at the moment,
except for a witness who spotted a
small car with two individuals
inside leaving the area after the
shooting.
On Monday morning, deputies
and FDLE (Florida Department of
Law Enforcement) agents were on
the scene gathering evidence.
Law enforcement agencies are
not releasing any further informa-
tion at the time, since the investiga-
tion is ongoing.
Officials encourage anyone
with any information about this
case to contact the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office at (863) 674-4060 or

County appraiser presents scholarships


WEST PALM BEACH Palm
Beach County Property Appraiser
Gary R. Nikolits, CFA, presented
$1,000 scholarships to five col-
lege-bound students today at the
14th annual awards ceremony,
held at the Property Appraiser's
Office fifth floor atrium.
"It is always a great pleasure
for me to award these scholar-
ships to the students, each of
whom has excelled in their field,"
said Nikolits. With this year's
awards, 80 high school seniors


from 29 public and private
schools in Palm Beach County
have benefited from the $1,000
scholarships. Office Depot on
Okeechobee Boulevard in West
Palm Beach donated school sup-
plies and storage bins to the five
students.
2007 scholarships were pre-
sented to two Glades area stu-
dents:
Alainta Alcin from Glades
Central Community High School
in Belle Glade. She will attend


Florida Gulf Coast University, in
Fort Myers, majoring in pre-law.
Elizabeth Yance from Glades
Day School in Belle Glade. She
will attend Embry Riddle Aero-
nautical University in Daytona
Beach to study meteorology.
There were 110 applicants this
year. Funds are raised through vol-
unteer employee donations from
participants in Friday Casual-
Dress Day. An Employee Scholar-
ship Committee selects the win-
ners. This is the fourteenth year


the Property Appraiser's Office
has awarded scholarships to local
high school seniors. With the
2007 scholarships, the Property
Appraiser's Office has awarded
$80,000 in scholarships.
To be eligible for the scholar-
ship, a student must be a resident
of Palm Beach County and have a
3.0 GPA. The college or junior col-
lege they plan to attend must be
accredited.

Lake Shore
Middle School
Lake Shore Middle School
hosted National Presenter, Larry
Bell, of Multicultural America Inc.
during their Professional Develop-
ment Day April 26. This privileged
occasion was well-attended by a
host of faculty and staff, parents
and community members of both
Lake Shore Middle and Rosen-
wald Elementary School.
Larry Bell's dynamic, informa-
tive and practical "Closing the
Achievement Gap" Seminar gave
teachers practical help with the
No Child Left Behind Act (NCLB).
Whether the achievement gap is
related to socio-economic condi-
tions, cultural differences or gen-
der, this seminar provided practi-


cal research-based strategies
every teacher can use. Other top-
ics covered during his compre-
hensive presentation included:
Research on the "power" of
teacher expectations, why every
teacher can reach every child;
Twenty strategies that help
low-achieving students during the
actual tests that must be prac-
ticed; and
Twelve powerful words that
trip up "at risk" students on stan-
dardized tests.
Jonteria Williams: Character
Counts
One of our students at Lake
Shore Middle School was picked
as an honoree student by the Sun
Sentinel to represent Character
Counts in Palm Beach County.
Throughout the school year
the student had excellent grades,
good behavior and in doing so
represented the six pillars of char-
acter: trustworthiness, respect,
responsibility, caring, fairness and
citizenship.
Congratulations, Jonteria
Williams, and all the best for the
future.

out the park.
The stations included drown-
ing prevention, fire safety, sun-
screen awareness, lawnmower
safety and all-terrain vehicle
(ATV) safety, among others.
Gary Burroughs, District Bat-
talion 7 Chief for the Palm Beach
County Fire Rescue, said the
safety camp gives the students
an opportunity to see the dan-
gers that exist in the Glades area.
"The camp is essential to
safety of our Glades children,"
said Mr. Burroughs. "It's the one
time of year we have the oppor-
tunity to teach our kids about
farm safety."
Fire rescue volunteer Matt
Alston, who manned the fire
safety station, showed the stu-
dents how to exit from a build-
ing in case of a fire.
Eddie Boswell, fire rescue
inspector, offered some advice
to kids in such a situation.
"Get out and stay out," he
told them.
Steve Weagle, the weather-
man for WPTV News channel 5,
was also at the event to talk
about weather safety. In his
presentation during the stu-
dents' snack time, he covered
hurricanes, lightning and torna-
does.
One device Mr. Weagle
brought to the camp was a hurri-
cane hunter, which he said is
used as a weather station that
flies through hurricanes.
The hurricane hunter, also
known as a GPS Dropsonde,
usually drops from 10,000 feet
and has a parachute that floats
down to earth, Mr. Weagle
explained to the children.
Mr. Weagle offered another
tip to everyone regarding hurri-
cane season, which is slated to
begin June 1.
"The best advice for hurri-
cane season is to make a hurri-
cane preparedness plan now,
before the season starts," said
Mr. Weagle.
Ms. Harper said she was
pleased by the turnout and sup-

Detective Scarso said the
house was vandalized, with cere-
al and detergent littering the
entire home and items were
tossed about as the vandal or
vandals went through the place.
The intruder wasn't believed
to have been in the home for
very long, according to witness-
es, but long enough to grab the
kitten from inside the home and
burn it alive in the oven.
An additional charge of tam-
pering with witnesses was lev-
eled against Smith after officers
learned he had attempted to
intimidate possible witnesses
from talking to police.


Dogs may suffer painful ear infections


INI/Naji Tobias
Students from Gove Elementary School are seen here learn-
ing about all-terrain vehicle (ATV) safety at Safety Day in
Rardin Park, held on Thursday, May 10. Detective Michael Fin-
cannon of the Palm Beach County Sheriff's Office talks to the
students about the importance of the use of a helmet, long
pants, boots, goggles and a long-sleeve shirt while riding an
ATV. Students were also told that riding off-trail damages the
surrounding land and is dangerous, among other tips.


During a snack break for the students, WPTV Channel 5
weatherman Steve Weagle makes an appearance at the safety
camp and is seen here showing them a rain gauge, which is
used to track how much rain falls in a particular area. The stu-
dents were attentive as Mr. Weagle offers them some useful
tips on how to handle hurricane season, which begins June 1.

"This is the 10th year of our

better and better," said Ms.

Her co-host and DJ, Mr. Avini

"My whole line of work, working around animal
abuse cases, I've never seen anything so cruel or
vicious."
Detective Joseph Scarso


At first, witnesses were reluc-
tant to work with officers who
canvassed the area for informa-
tion, fearing retaliation. In the
end, the community was so
"shocked" by the crime that the
leads started trickling in.
The teenager pled guilty last
week to the charges of tamper-
ing with witnesses, burglary of a
structure and animal cruelty and
was sentenced to three years in
jail and 30 years probation. For
the first three years after his
release, he will be required to
serve at least 30 hours of com-


munity service each month.
In addition, the teen was
ordered to write a letter of apolo-
gy to the victim.
The veteran detective said he
was personally shocked with the
case.
"My whole line of work, work-
ing around animal abuse cases,
I've never seen anything so cruel
or vicious," Detective Scarso
said. "I've heard of someone put-
ting a cat in a microwave, but to
put something in an oven..."

COLLEGE STATION If it
seems that everything you say to
Rover goes in one ear and out the
other, it's probably not just a
rebellious phase he may be
suffering from an ear infection or
other condition that may require
ear surgery.
Dr. Phil Hobson, a veterinari-
an in the College of Veterinary
Medicine & Biomedical.Sciences
at Texas A&M University, says
most ear surgery in dogs is sur-
prisingly a result of a skin or food
allergy.
"Dogs with pendulous ears, or
floppy ears, are the most suscep-
tible to severe ear infection,"
Hobson explains. "The shape of
the ears and the position of the
ear canal in these breeds creates
a warm, moist environment ideal
for the growth of infection."
Dr. Hobson says dog ear infec-
tions are usually secondary to an
underlying food or skin allergy.
"These dogs may shake their
heads or scratch their ears, the
ear canal can become inflamed
and swollen, and their hearing
dampened," he adds. "Your vet-
erinarian can perform tests to
indicate what your dog is allergic
to that may be predisposing the
infection."

will be able to help meet the
challenges of bringing utilities
into the 21st century and in com-
pliance of environmental agency
rules and regulations," said Mr.
Sweat.
Faith Doyle, the executive
administrative assistant for GSG,
agreed with Mr. Sweat, adding
that the company has experi-
enced a good relationship with
city officials eager to make the
corrections.
"It's refreshing to work with
people who want to improve
services to citizens, from the city
manager on down," said Ms.
Doyle.
Allen Davis, the public works
director for the city, said that
continual progress will continue
to be made.
Commissioner John Wilson,
during Tuesday night's meeting,
said he was initially critical of Mr.
Sweat working as a consultant
for the utilities department due
to what he perceived as past
records of Mr. Sweat's work with
utility departments in other
municipalities he did not cite
specific examples of his criti-
cism.
However, Commissioner said


Pet Talk

If your veterinarian does rec-
ommend ear surgery to correct
the problem, you'll be glad to
know that your dog will feel bet-
ter within a few days of the 75-
minute surgery.
After surgery, antibiotics are
administered for about five to
seven days, and pain medication
is usually required for two or
three days.
"This type of ear surgery,
called 'total ablation,' includes
the removal of the ear canal
down to the middle ear and
cleaning out the infected tissue,"
Dr. Hobson says.
"During surgery, the veterinar-
ian may find mineralized carti-
lage (infected cartilage that turns
into bone) or tumors within the
ear canal. Most dogs undergoing
this ear surgery have eardrums
That have been completely
destroyed by the infection.
"In such cases, the dog's hear-
ing cannot be improved, but the
dog will feel much better
because the painful infection is
gone and the chance of recurring
infection is nearly eliminated,"
adds Hobson.


he is now a supporter of Mr.
Sweat's work.
"When you change from
being a critic to a supporter of
someone's work, it says some-
thing about an individual being
too quick to judge," said Commis-


Although unlikely, one possi-
ble risk of ear surgery is tempo-
rary or long-term facial nerve
damage.
Most pet owners, he believes,
will find their dogs seem healthi-
er, happier and more attentive as
a result of the surgery. While it
cannot restore hearing, it can
certainly improve the dog's quali-
ty of life.
For many breeds, allergies
and recurrent ear infection may
be unavoidable, but Hobson
encourages dog owners to clean
and inspect their pets' ears regu-
larly, while being careful to avoid
pushing debris further into the
ear canal.
Dr. Hobson also suggests that
dog owners watch for any behav-
iors that indicate their dogs' ears
are becoming bothersome.
When it comes to your dogs'
ears, Hobson says it's best to use
this rule of thumb: A visit to your
veterinarian can keep a small itch
from becoming a big problem.

Some advice from a wayward sheep

By Pastor John Hicks lay on top of one another in a white In Psalm 23, David refers to the don't listen to the voice of our shep-
First United Methodist pile. Those who jumped later were Lord as his shepherd. David was herd and try to do things on our
Church, Clewiston saved as the pile got higher, cush- well aware of the dangers in the own, pushing our way into places
h ar n intortin red ioning the fall. world. He knew that there were that may not be the best place for Community Links. Individual Voices.
Sheeh are an interesting breed A word of dark valleys and evil, he knew that us to be at that time. We may find


of animals and the shepherds that
protect them are also an interesting
breed. If I were a sheep, I probably
would not be the black sheep of
the family. I probably wouldn't just
be one of the flock either. Most
sheep are pretty tame, but there is a
wild breed of sheep that are high-
spirited, daring and self-reliant.
Know anybody like that? I see
someone like that every time I look
into the mirror.
Sometimes the high spirited
sheep can get into trouble. Some
time back, I read an article about a
sheep in Turkey that, for some rea-
son or another, jumped to its death
over a cliff. Stunned Turkish shep-
herds, who had left the herd to
graze while they had breakfast,
watched as nearly 1,500 others fol-
lowed, each leaping over the same
cliff. In the end, 450 dead animals


insight here: Be
careful about
following other
sheep you
might end up
over a cliff.
In countries
where shep-
herding is still John
an occupation, Hicks
I have heard
that shepherds do not call their
sheep randomly. They have a spe-
cial call or whistle that the sheep
recognize as their own shepherd's
voice. Shepherds guard their sheep
against attack from wild animals.
Shepherds take the chance of los-
ing their own life to protect their
sheep.
Another word of insight: Trust
the shepherd; he has your best
interest at heart.


he had enemies. As a young shep-
herd, he knew that there were
wolves, robbers, and thieves. David
knew that without the guidance of
the shepherd, the chance that the
sheep would be slaughtered or
scattered was high. That is why the
shepherd was there, to watch over
the sheep even with the chance of
losing his own life.
In today's world, we walk
through dark valleys. Pain, loss,
anguish, fear, evil, death; they are
all a part of our lives. We even have
enemies or perceived enemies and
those people that we don't always
agree with. We also experience
wolves, those who pull us away
from what we know is right and
lead us to places that we never
would have gone without their
influence.
As wild sheep, we sometimes


ourselves at the edge of a cliff and
wonder how we are going to get
back to the flock, to the security of
our home and family, to the securi-
ty of our shepherd.
David proclaims, "The Lord is
my shepherd. He walks through
the dark valleys with me. God com-
forts me and keeps me on track
with the staff and the rod. The staff
guides me and the rod keeps me
from doing harm to myself. It disci-
plines me."
The Lord is also our shepherd.
Listen to His voice. Next time you
find yourself looking over that cliff,
just remember that the Good Shep-
herd is looking over the flock, lyiig
in green pastures, and/or beside
still waters, restoring souls, setting
us on right paths all with the prom-
ise that we shall all dwell in the
house of the Lord forever.


Ascension; growing up, not a three-story universe


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
May 17 is celebrated as Ascen-
sion Day this year. It is a com-
memoration of the Lord ascend-
ing into
Heaven (Acts
1:9) at the
completion of
His earthly ~ _w4
appearances
after His resur- .
reaction. It was . B
the end of His
time for being
a visible, earth- Samuel S.
ly witness to
those who saw Thomas
Him, that "the Lord is risen, He is
risen indeed (from Luke 24:34)."
Now all would have to go it on
their own
"Have you believed because
you have seen me? Blessed are
those who have not seen and yet
believe (John 20:29)," He tells
Thomas at one of His last appear-
ances.
It is always easier when the
proof is in front of us; when we
see for ourselves. Sadly, that is
not always the case. That's when


we are called upon to make an
"ascension."
Someone who was seeking
help for children told me of the
other parent who does not help
with support. "Why not?" I
asked. The answer was that it
just doesn't happen. I explained
in turn that I was being asked to
support someone else's irre-
sponsible, immature behavior
and didn't think that was entirely
fair. One party in the relationship
has not, "ascended" to a level of
maturity, acceptance of respon-
sibility for children brought into
the world and for whom they are
responsible. Someone has
refused to grow up, to "ascend"
to adulthood and leaves the
other partner with a double bur-
den of being two parents as well
as seeking support that is hard to
get.
There are others who are not
yet grown up and who go
through life concerned about not
being caught instead of what is
right or wrong.
Such people have not
"ascended" to their rightful place
in the world, justifying to them-
selves acts of immaturity or irre-
sponsibility and refusing to


answer honestly for them. We no
longer believe in a three-story
universe with hell-down-there-
heaven-up-there-and-earth-in-
the-middle.
In fact, the Earth is not flat;
we've known for hundreds of
years that "ascension" means
more than "going up physically."
Ascension means, rather, rising
beyond one's earthly self, sacrific-
ing, going the second mile, reach-
ing out beyond our usual limits. It
is a call to undo the "fall" of
humanity; undoing the Garden of
Eden story in a small but special
way; to be grown, mature, adult
followers of the Lord. Maybe it is
harder to believe when we don't
see; but maturity requires it.
I don't have parents standing
behind me now to see that I look
both ways before I cross the
street. I don't have others to tell
me to brush my teeth; don't have
others cover my debts; to tell me
how to be polite, pick up after
myself. These things are now
internalized "...when I was a
child...now that I have become a
man..." (1 Corinthians 13), but I
carry the calls to maturity that
others have used to point me on
the right path. They are those


who helped me grow and loved
me and are with me. I honor
them each time I do what they
wanted for me and they wanted
the best. I "ascend" as they would
have wished.
Jesus calls upon His followers
to do the harder part; to believe
and act even when not seen, but
promises that we are blessed for
it.
When we grow, when we
become mature, when we
"ascend" to what we can be -
that is when God is with us and
blesses us. It is about being
responsible to others and to our-
selves, being cheerful when it is
difficult to be cheerful, being
patient when it is difficult to be
patient, pushing on when we'd
like to stand still, being agreeable
when we'd like to be disagree-
able, or being what the saints
were, and are!
That's God's mature people;
those who accept their call and
go beyond, believing and living
on their belief; having faith and
acting on it.
It is within the reach of each
of us.

How to avoid seeing 'Salem' in your house


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Salem was not large, but it was
buzzing with conversation about
the authorities having rounded up
some of its own teen-agers the
night before as the guilty parties of
several recent burglaries. The
leader of the gang was Buster
Stewart. It took common but
respected Russ Jennings to give the
particulars of the case. He had lived
in the same block with the Stew-
arts and had been a witness to the
developments that produced
Buster Stewart. Let us listen in on
what he is saying to his friend
Henry Evans.
"I've been expecting something
like this for quite a while for the
boy's parents have had no control
of him for a good while.
When Buster was nine, they
dropped out of church feeling
hurt over something the preacher
said, I expect now they wish they
hadn't quit."
"But even before they quit
going to church, you could see if
you lived in the community, that
there was something wrong in the
home. Periodically they had trou-
ble that all of us could hear. They
didn't make Buster mind, and he
was never punished for his disobe-


diences. They babied him and gave
him everything he wanted and he
didn't appreciate any of it. He
threw tantrums when he was little,
kicked his mother when he got
mad and has always talked back to
his dad. He probably got his atti-
tude toward his father from his
mother, for she is always running
Henry down and telling him off
about something. But there were
times when Henry deserved it, for
he was none too loving or kind to
her either. So what else can you
expect? And then when the boy got
old enough to have a car of his
own, things began to develop even
faster toward what happened."
Dear friends, do you realize
what happen in Salem is happen-
ing in many other places today?
And do you realize that the condi-
tions in the Stewart home that pro-
duced a Buster Stewart are to be
found in many other homes today?
And do you realize that it is the 21st
Century home that is producing
the 21st century problem child?
And do you realize that it is "home
delinquency" that is producing
"child delinquency?"
A half century ago a new
experimental theory was intro-
duced about child rearing. The
child was to be his own boss,


more or less. The parents would
say nothing to cross the child
unless conditions reached the
unbearable point. They would
never correct nor punish the child-
merely make suggestions. Well,
time has proven all over the coun-
try that the experiment has failed!
Our homes were a lot better off
before people adopted the untried
theory of the "experts".
Do you realize that the New Tes-
tament contains a wise and work-
able set of instructions for a happy,
successful home? To the wives it
says, "Wives, submit yourselves
unto your husbands" (Eph. 5:22).
(Husbands be wise so you will be
easy to submit to.) To the husband
it says, "Husbands, love your
wives" (Eph. 5:25). (Wives, always
be nice that you might be easy to.
love.) To the children it says, "Chil-
dren, obey your parents" (Eph.
6:1). (Parents be wise and loving
that you will be easy to obey.) And
to parents it says "Fathers, provoke
not your children to wrath, but
bring them up in the nurture and
admonition of the Lord (Eph. 6:4).
(Children, be happy thus to be
brought up.)
Live according to these divine
rules, and you will never see
"Salem" at your house!

LABELLE Due to the recent
wildfires affecting the state, the
Florida Department of Health
(doh) is providing health recom-
mendations to citizens impacted by
the wildfire smoke.
Smoke is a respiratory irritant,
and can cause a scratchy throat
and/or irritated eyes and nose.
Smoke may also worsen condi-
tions such as asthma and other
chronic respiratory or lung condi-
tions.
There are many steps you can
take to protect yourself and your
family from the health effects of
smoke:
Be your own health judge. If
you can see smoke outside or you
feel the effects of the smoke, avoid
prolonged outdoor activities. It is
especially important to limit time
spent outdoors for children and


persons with existing medical con-
ditions.
Stay indoors whenever possi-
ble. Run your air conditioner with a
clean filter and the fresh air intake
closed, to prevent additional
smoke from entering your home. If
you don't have an air conditioner
and are a comfortable temperature
inside with the windows closed,
stay inside. If your home is too
warm, seek alternative shelter.
Keep particle levels inside and
around your home lower by not
burning outdoor yard waste, smok-
ing tobacco, or using anything that
burns, such as wood fireplaces, gas
logs, gas stoves and candles.
Delay vacuuming when possi-
ble, as vacuuming stirs up particles
already inside your home.
Follow your doctor's advice
about taking your medications and


adhere to your asthma manage-
ment plan if you have asthma or
other lung disease.
Call your doctor if your symp-
toms worsen.
Stay alert to any news cover-
age or health warnings related to
smoke.
Pay attention to local air quali-
ty reports. For more information on
the air quality index and recom-
mendations: please visit:

National Hospital Week is in


full swing at Hendry Regional


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON Hospitals
across the country recently cele-
brated National Hospital Week
(May 6-12), and Hendry Regional
Medical Center was among them.
The nation's most traditional
health care event unites hospitals,
health care workers and commu-
nities from coast to coast, building
enthusiasm and pride in the giving
nature of care.
The celebration of National
Hospital Week began in 1921,
when a magazine editor suggest-
ed that more information to the
public about hospitals might alle-
viate fears about hospital institu-
tions. The idea caught on, and
today National Hospital Week is
the nation's largest annual health
care event.
A full slate of activities was
planned for the employees and
medical staff at HRMC including:
Monday Pancake Breakfast

Tuesday Neon Day
Wednesday Cultural Attire
Thursday Mother's Day Social
Friday- Foundation Barbeque
The Hospital CEO, Craig Cud-


worth, stated, "It is important
that we recognize National Hos-
pital Week and to acknowledge
our employees for their many
contributions to the hospital's
accomplishments."


Hendry Regional Foundation begins

'Commemorative Brick Program'


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
CLEWISTON The HRMC
Foundation is in the process of a
commemorative brick fundraiser.
Now you, a family member or a
friend can be remembered in a
lasting and tangible way for the
vital role you will play in modern,
patient-centered healthcare.
In 2008, HRMC will break
ground on a new Emergency
Room, Laboratory and Surgery


Suite, to be located south of the
existing hospital and connected by
an enclosed corridor.
Your brick memorial will play a
prominent role in the beauty and
character of the project. One day
soon, visitors will be able to see the
community's generosity and finan-
cial support of Hendry Regional
Medical Center.
Join the Foundation in "Build-
ing a Pathway to Modern Health-
care One Brick at a Time." Your


contribution will provide a visible
and meaningful way to honor
friends and loved ones.
A 4" x 8" brick inscription is
$100 per brick (3 engraved lines).
An 8" x 8" brick inscription is
$150 per brick (6 engraved lines).
You may contact GlendaWilson
at (863) 983-2735 or visit the HRMC
Foundation (old Chamber Build-
ing) at 544 West Sugarland High-
way, Clewiston, Florida 33440 to

Wildfire smoke can be health hazard


Due to the recent wildfires
affecting the state, the Florida
Department of Health is providing
health recommendations to citi-
zens impacted by wildfire smoke.
Smoke is a respiratory irritant, and
can cause a scratchy throat, and/or
irritated eyes and nose. Smoke may
also worsen conditions such as
asthma and other chronic respira-
tory or lung conditions.
There are many steps you can
take to protect yourself and your

Livestock movement restrictions eased


Bronson makes it
easier to move animals
away from wildfires
TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles Bronson
has taken steps to make it easier for
horse and livestock owners to
move their animals in the event of
an evacuation due to wildfires.
Mr. Bronson has temporarily
suspended intrastate movement


requirements only for those ani-
mals being evacuated from
affected areas. He has also lifted
interstate requirements for ani-
mals being evacuated from the
fire-affected areas in Georgia and
moving into Florida. At the same
time, Alabama and Georgia offi-
cials have waived their interstate
movement requirements for
Florida livestock being evacuated
into those states.
"We need to help people get
out of harm's way as quickly as
possible because these wildfires


can spread quickly and we have
new fires breaking out in many
areas of the state each day," Mr.
Bronson said. "This temporary
suspension of these require-
ments is critical for people who
need to move out of an area
quickly and want to protect their
animals."
Anyone transporting livestock
during this emergency situation
must continue to stop at the
Florida agricultural interdiction
stations. If the proper paper-
work does not accompany the


shipment, the transporter will be
issued an ALE-5, Livestock Truck
Passing Report. This movement
report must accompany the live-
stock during transport within
Florida, Georgia and Alabama
until the owners return home
when it is deemed safe to do so.
For a listing of facilities accept-
ing livestock in the southeast, log
on to the Division of Animal Indus-
try web site at http://www.doacs.
state.fl.us/ai/adc/adc_emerg_mana
g_links.shtml.


Bronson reduces the threat of yard fires


TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
has announced that due to the
severe wildfire threat, he has
instructed the Division of Forestry
to stop the burning of all yard waste
by homeowners. Mr. Bronson
wants to reduce the potential for
additional wildfires until weather
conditions improve.
Mr. Bronson said that he is tak-
ing the action as a result of a signifi-
cant increase in the number and
severity of wildfires. It follows a
May 3 Executive Order by Governor


Charlie Crist declaring a state of
emergency due to the ongoing
drought and danger ofwildfires.
"This reduction in the burning
of yard waste should emphasize to
everyone the seriousness of the
drought conditions in our state,"
Mr. Bronson said. "Until we are
well into a regular pattern of after-
noon thundershowers, we cannot
risk allowing a small yard fire to
escape and cause a disaster."
Unless prohibited by the local
city or county, homeowners living
in single or two-family dwellings
are normally allowed to burn yard


waste (grass clippings, brush,
leaves, tree limbs, palm fronds,
etc.) on the premises in a non-com-
bustible container [or pile less than
8 feet in diameter] without any spe-
cific authorization from the Divi-
sion of Forestry. It is that activity that
is being temporarily halted.
"Yard waste can be used as
mulch, left for curb-side pick-up if
that is available or simply piled for
burning when weather conditions
improve," Bronson said.
In Florida, the Division of
Forestry regulates all outdoor burn-
ing, including burning of agricul-


ture crop residue, silviculture burn-
ing and pile burning. Authoriza-
tions for those activities already
have been drastically curtailed due
to the dry conditions.
In a typical year, Florida has
about 5,000 wildfires that burn
approximately 200,000 acres. Since
January 1 of this year, 1,875 wild-
fires have burned 166,247 acres.
For more information on Flori-
da's outdoor burning laws, home-
owners should contact the local
office of the Division of Forestry or
the local fire department.


Farm-friendly bills

passed by legislature


TALLAHASSEE The 2007
session of the Florida Legisla-
ture resulted in passage of
much-needed legislation that
will help the state's farmers
and ranchers continue to oper-
ate, according to Florida Farm
Bureau, the state's largest gen-
eral interest agricultural organi-
zation.
"We appreciate the support
agriculture received from our
legislators," said FFBF Presi-
dent John Hoblick. "I also
appreciate the support we
received from hundreds of
Farm Bureau members who
kept in touch with their sena-
tors .and representatives
throughout the session."
Bills sent to the governor's
desk will lower sales taxes for
agricultural producers, protect
rural landowners from trespass
liability and destruction of
fences, support development
of agri-tourism and fund
research into alternative energy
sources.
Lawmakers broadened the
sales tax exemption for elec-
tricity used on farms to encom-
pass all aspects, direct and indi-
rect, of production and
processing of agricultural prod-
ucts on farms. The exemption
now also applies to other agri-
culture-related activities per-
formed on farm, including in'
offices and barns. Primary
sponsors of the legislation
were Rep. Bryan Nelson, R-
Apopka and Sen. Jeff Atwater,
R-North Palm Beach.
Agri-tourism stands to get a
boost from a measure that per-
mits the Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services to
provide marketing advice,
expertise, support and product


development. Under that
measure the department
would also assist local govern-
ments, economic development
organizations, the Florida Com-
mission on Tourism and like
organizations with promoting
agri-tourism. It also directs
local governments and agricul-
tural representatives to meet
regarding regulatory streamlin-
ing, incentives and the benefits
of agri-tourism to local
economies.
Trespassing, a perennial
thorn in the side for rural
landowners, was also
addressed in the agri-tourism
bill. Under the measure sent to
the governor, a trespasser can-
not sue an agricultural
landowner for damages related
to the trespasser's unlawful
conduct. Landowners can now
post property by painting "No
Trespassing" in letters two
inches high and one inch wide
in an international orange color
on posts or trees no more than
500 feet apart. (Entrances and
exits must still be marked with
conventional signs.) The crimi-
nal penalty for intentionally
damaging or removing "no
trespassing" signs is increased
to a first degree misdemeanor
and the penalty for second or
subsequent occurrences of
breaking or injuring fences is
boosted to a third degree
felony.
The University of
Florida/IFAS will receive $20
million for an alternative ener-
gy research facility and the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture was budgeted $26 million
for Farm to Fuel grants pro-
gram.

Bowden: Henry Ford gave us advice '''

edited by MaryAnn Morris .. newsza I o
By Bryi owde aI


I


Thanks to the generosity of
the Clewiston Museum, we have
copies of the wonderful history
articles Ms. Beryl Bowden wrote
while she was employed by the
Clewiston News. She, like vila
Valentine of Okeechobee, is an
inspiration and we are grateful
to be able to re-run her writings.
"It was November 1931, the
nation was still struggling to rise
out of the great depression
when Henry Ford was inter-
viewed by the Clewiston News
while on a visit here to see the
sugar mill in operation. Among
other things, Mr. Ford said, "I
would not insure unemploy-
ment; to me that looks like the
surest way of establishing.unem-
ployment as a permanent evil.
What we should do is abolish it
and that can be done. The world
is full of work that ought to be
done. But very little effort is
being made toward it. All the
effort has gone toward 'insuring
unemployment' I am afraid of
any kind of artificial interference
with natural production." He
was referring, I believe to Feder-
al Unemployment Insurance,
which would have been an issue
two years after the Stock Market
crash in 1929, which lead to the
depression.
"Henry Ford and Thomas A.
Edison, both of whom had win-
ter homes in Fort Myers, were
among the nationally known vis-
itors to the Glades area in the
1920s and 30s. Mr. Ford became
a frequent visitor after he
acquired, in 1924, a large
acreage at Fort Thompson, the
present site of Port LaBelle. "E.E.
Goodno had mortgaged the
property to Mr. Ford for
$178,000; when he was unable
to pay off the mortgage, he sold
to Ford, who paid him an addi-
tional $172,000 for his remaining
interest. Mr.; Goodno remained
as manager there for several
years, but Mr. Ford took a keen
interest and became a figure to
local residents and especially to
the late E. Cornett of Clewiston
who with Blitz Wegan at that
time was in the Ford dealership
at LaBelle. He recalled Ford's
direct manner and called him an
"easy customer to sell." Mr. Ford
knew exactly what he wanted,
ordered it, paid cash in full for it
and never asked for a discount
or any special treatment. He was
treated exactly like any other
customer and that's the way he
wanted it.
"Mr. Ford was a friendly, casu-
al person and strangers respond-
ed quickly to his easy approach.
Elizabeth Bailey, daughter of the
minister of Community Church,
recalled her first meeting with
Mr. Ford. She was seated in the
back yard of the manse with her
hair, still wet from a shampoo,
streaming over she shoulders to
dry, when a stranger wandered
into the yard, inspecting shrubs
and grasses. They had a pleasant
conversation but neither volun-
teered their identity. Later that
evening, she accompanied her
parents to the Fred Williamson
home where they were invited
for dinner and learned that she
had already met Henry Ford,
another guest.
"Mr. Ford made friends easily
and seemed to have a special
rapport with children, who
responded immediately to his
appearance at their games or
small gatherings along the
streets or vacant lots in LaBelle.
Early residents recall many

In 1929, President Herbert Hoover came to South Florida and paid a visit to Thomas Edison
at his home in Fort Myers on the Caloosahatchee River. Edison's next door neighbor was
none other than Henry Ford. (Left to right) President Herbert Hoover, Henry Ford, Thomas
Edison and Harvey Firestone.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


instances of Ford's concern for
children and his enjoyment of
them.
"Don Bush remembers when
a group of boys were roller skat-
ing on a newly paved sidewalk,
all too uncommon in LaBelle at
that time. Mr. Ford came along
and watched the sport and
began a conversation. He
admired the boys' skating skills,
said he had skated as a young-
ster and wished he could skate
again. One lad promptly
removed his own skates and
offered them to Mr. Ford. With a
little adjustment, they were fitted
onto his shoes and Ford took the
hand of the nearest boy Bush
himself and with him, skated
the full length of the sidewalk
and back.
"Another resident recalls Mr.
Ford watching a group of girls at
play and noting that one girl
took no active part. When he
made inquiries, he learned the
child was born with badly
clubbed feet and could not walk
normally was ". With the con-
sent of her parents, Mr. Ford sent
Gladys Smith to a Dearborn hos-
pital where a series of surgeries
over several months corrected
her deformity. Upon her return,
he told the parents never to buy
ordinary shoes for her, but to
continue the special shoes and
send all the bills to him.
"Clyde Underhill, a LaBelle
orphan reared by relatives, was,
at 18 a messenger boy in Fort
Myers, who delivered telegrams
to the Ford residence. Mr. Ford
learned his history and arranged
for him to attend a five-year
course in the Ford Industries
Trade School, learning mechani-
cal skills in a work-and-study
program.


It was typical of Henry Ford
that, with new designs and
improvements and the develop-
ment of Lincolns and other cars,
the Model T remained his proud-
est accomplishment. When
someone admired one of the
new model Ford sedans,, Mr.
Ford replied, "yes, it's better
than the Lincoln now."
"The Model T was "The car
that will take you there and bring
you back," and Ford never forgot
it.
"Mr. Ford planted his large
acreage of citrus at his Fort
Thompson property, but he
seemed to give most of his atten-
tion to the small (about one
acre), experimental nursery in
which he, Harvey Firestone and
Thomas Edison were attempting
to find a new U.S. source of rub-
ber. This was just part of a wide
ranging project; there were
plantings a Chapman Field,
Miami, at a site near Ocala and
in other localities and other
states. Some of the deeds and
plants even came to Clewiston
where George Watkins, the land-
scape gardener had a small
nursery to grow shrubs and
other plants to beautify Clewis-
ton streets and park areas.
"Harvey Firestone was an
important part of this search for
rubber sources. He, Edison and
Ford began their joint search in
1920. Firestone's aim was to
produce a new source of rubber
to avoid the high cost of import-
ed rubber, which had almost
doubled. His goal was to pro-
duce a pneumatic tire which
could be used on all farm
machinery. Some of his tires
were tested on farms in the
Clewiston area and he brought
men from his research team
here to evaluate the experiment
in 1936. Firestone was said to be
pleased with the showing made.
In the search for a new
source of rubber, Edison, the sci-
entist, conducted the experi-
ments, tests is his laboratories;
Ford provided the financing;
Firestone directed the manufac-
turing into tires. There was a
world-wide search for plants
adaptable to U.S. growing con-
ditions.

"One day, Thomas Edison
was strolling through the
grounds of his Ft. Myers home
which was planted with many
unusual shrubs and trees. Peo-
ple often walked through it also.
"A man asked Edison, is there
any chance of my seeing Mr. Edi-
son?"
"Edison replied, "He some-
times walks around the yard
here. If you keep watching you
may see him."
Ms. Bowden notes here: "I
believe the above is from a circa
'25 GCD (Glades County Democ-
rat)
"Edison deplored the loss of
Florida's native forests which
were denuded fir timber and lost
also to woods fires.
"When the trees go, the birds
will follow suit they may also
be gone," he said.
"In March of '28, Ford recov-
ered portions of (the steamboat)
Suwannee in Moore Haven
Canal. Captain Fred Menge
(Refer to the "Recollections"
articles published the past three
weeks for information about
Fred Menge and his brothers
who worked for Hamilton Dis-
ston on the original drainage of
the Lake Okeechobee area*.)
"The remains of the Suwan-
nee were transported to Dear-
born, Michigan where Fred's
youngest brother, Conrad
worked to build a replica of the
Suwannee in the Henry Ford
Museum."
