June is Men's Health Month
Henry & Glades Counties The Hendry
and Glades County Health Departments join
health professionals and citizens of both
counties to recognize June as Men's Health
Month.
The week of Father's Day, June 15 21, is
recognized as National Men's Health Week.
This year's theme is "Awareness-Prevention-
Education-Family."
Please encourage the men and boys in
your life to get regular check ups, medical
advice, and early treatment for any injuries


or diseases.
Even though there have been many ad-
vances in health care over the years, men
still die on average at least five to six years
earlier than women.
The rates are even higher for African
American men.
According to the Centers for Disease Con-
trol and Prevention (CDC), men are almost
twice as likely as women to die of heart dis-
ease and they have higher mortality rates
than women for the top 10 leading causes
of death.
The heightened risk of morbidity, injury
and premature deaths among men is often
referred to as "The Silent Health Crisis" for
men.
If you have any questions regarding
men's health or if you would like additional
information, please contact the Hendry &
Glades County Health Departments at: 863-
674-4041, LaBelle; 863-983-1408, Clewiston;

This illustration shows the areas affected by Carpal Tunnel Syndrome.


By Dr. Darayes Mobed,
General Surgeon at Hendry Regional
Medical Center
Have you been trying to ignore the tin-
gling or numbness that you've had in your
hand and wrist?
Are you attributing the sharp, piercing
pain that shoots through your wrist and up
your arm as passing cramps?
More than likely, you have carpal tunnel
syndrome, a painful and progressive condi-
tion caused by compression of a key nerve
in the wrist, the Median nerve.
Carpal tunnel is a medical condition
in which the Median nerve, running from
the forearm into the hand, becomes com-
pressed or squeezed at the wrist.
The result may be pain, weakness or
numbness in the hand and wrist, radiating
up the arm.,
Although many associate carpal tunnel
syndrome with hours spent working on a
computer keyboard, carpal tunnel can actu-
ally result from a variety of other job tasks,
where the motions of your hands and wrists
are stressed.
A few examples of these include using
power tools, participating in heavy assembly
line work, sewing, etc.
Carpal tunnel symptoms usually start
gradually, with frequent burning, tingling or
itching numbness in the palm of the hands
and fingers, especially around the thumb
and the index'finger and middle fingers.
The dominant hand is usually affected
first and produces the most severe pain.
Women are three times more likely to de-
velop carpal tunnel than men, according to
the National Institute of Neurological Disor-
ders and Stroke.
Conditions such as thyroid problems, di-
abetes, obesity and rheumatoid arthritis can


increase the risk of this disorder.
It is important to seek early diagnosis and
treatment to avoid permanent damage of
the Median nerve.
A physician can examine the hands,
arms, shoulders, and neck to determine if
a patient's complaints are related to daily
activities or an underlying disorder such as
carpal tunnel syndrome.
The physician can also use specific tests
to try to produce the symptoms of carpal
tunnel syndrome.
Sometimes, it may be necessary for the
physician to confirm the diagnosis by per-
forming other tests that use electrical activity
(EMG).
In special circumstances, various drugs
can ease the pain and swelling associated
with this condition.
When therapy, exercise, and drugs do
not alleviate the symptoms, surgery may be
recommended.
With tiny cutting tools, the surgeon
would make a small incision at the wrist
and release the compression on the Median
nerve by gently transecting the transverse
carpal ligament.
The small incisions are closed with stitch-
es.
When a patient undergoes carpal tunnel
surgery, he/she usually goes home on the
same day as the surgery and can expect a
quick recovery period.
The pain and numbness may go away
right after surgery, or it may take several
weeks.
If you have any symptoms of carpal tun-
nel syndrome, please seek an evaluation
from a physician.
The treatment is quick and successful.
For additional information regarding car-
pal tunnel syndrome, call 863-983-5026 or
863-675-2356.

Walk in the Past: Creek Indians and Fur Trade


How the Fur Trade shaped
the development of early.
Florida history; a historical
credit crisis

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Winter's long months of barrenness gave
way to the infancy of spring time that ush-
ered in like a woman in travail, giving birth
to new life.
Woods and valleys sprang into a thou-
sand new shades of green, while flowers
burst forth, covering the meadows and
swamps in a multitude of bright colors.
The awakening sounds of animals, birds,
and insects celebrating spring's arrival,
echoed across the forest in musical sym-
phonies, as fragrant scents from the many
flowers and shrubs permeated the air like
perfume.
Tall pines and hardwoods accented the
hills and mountains in a variety of shapes
and. color, while fleecy, snow white clouds
floated on skies bathed in blues and pur-
ples.
Spring's new masterpiece, painted by the
hand of -an invisible artist, unveiled a land-
scape of majestic beauty
Nature's scenic pageantry was broken by
the intrusive sounds of bells, as strangers en-
tered the forest.
Fur traders, hard men tested in battle and
tempered in hardship, rode through the for-
est single-file, leading a long string of pack
horses.
SThey were the merchants of the forest,
whose livelihoods depended on nature's
bounty.
Leaving the comforts of civilization, the
fur traders had traveled and traversed the
many forest trails for months, trading with
the far flung Creek villages, where guns,
powder, lead and other items were bartered
for the prized deer skins.
The fur season had ended profitably with
three, 50-pound bundles of hides, carefully
loaded on each horse.
They now journeyed east to Charleston,
South Carolina that was hundreds of miles
away, through an.untamed wilderness.
Unshaken by the vastness of the land, the
men followed an invisible trail marked only
for the keen eyes of the woodsman.
The legacies of the Mountain Men that
trapped and traded in the far west are still
remembered, but little is known about their
earlier counterparts, who lived on the fron-
Stiers of the southeast.
It is time to "Take a Walk in The Past" and
read about the Creeks and fur traders in the
southeast.

The Creeks, like other Indian
soon became dependent on Europ
goods, which forced change in

The Indians bartered great nu
deer hides for the expensive Europ
goods and soon local deer populat

Indian hide hunters were force


S hundreds of miles from their homelands to
collect sufficient hides for muskets, powder
and home comforts enjoyed by the female
gender.
Long-term credit was given freely to the
Indians by fur traders.
The sales pitch: "Buy now, and pay later"
sounds and works well until the bill comes
due.
The Indians found themselves in a credit
providers dilemma that forced them into the woods
five to six months a year hunting the wily,
white tail deer, so they could pay last year's
debt.
This frontier style of capitalism was fur-
ther complicated by Foreign Policy.
European wars, peace treaties, and eco-
nomics were all part of the political mayhem
that impacted trade-good prices, availability
of supplies, and who traded with the Indi-
an.
SThese decisions created the old domino
Effect, which impacted the Indian's way of
life just as today's foreign policies on crude
oil impact ours.
Creeks, and other Indians living in South
s in Ala- Carolina, allied themselves with the Yama-
see Indians during the Yamasee War, which

ions were Florida's geography.
During the early 1700s, these bands of
i to travel Creeks were. still considered part of the


Creek Confederacy and maintained close
political ties with other Creeks living in Ala-
bama and Georgia.
Eventually large Creek towns resided in
what is now Alachua, Leon, and Levy coun-
ties.
The Creeks living in these towns became
a growing threat to the Spanish and Florida
Indians.
The Spanish called the dangerous Creek
Indians living in Florida "Cimarron," which
translates to "runaway" or "wild people."
It is thought that the English and pioneer
pronunciation of Cimarron was pronounced
as Seminole.
In 1763, the English gained control of
Florida and divided it into two provinces for
administrative purposes East Florida and
West Florida.
St. Augustine was the capital of East
Florida and Pensacola the capital of West
Florida.
Pensacola had an excellent seaport, and
under British rule the city flourished.
Businessmen were quick to take advan-
tage of Pensacola's thriving trade and its
strategic location, which placed it in the cen-
ter of the Creek Confederacy.
The fur trade shifted from Charleston to
Pensacola.
England's acquisition of Florida in 1763,
and its growing fur trade drew additional
Creeks to Florida.
Spanish citizens and many of the remain-
ing Florida Indians didn't feel safe living un-
der British rule.
Years of fighting, slavery and the Creeks,
who were hostile to the Spanish and their
Indian allies, generated a mass exodus.
Most of the Spanish citizens of Florida
and many of the Florida Indians migrated to
Cuba in 1763.
There will be more Tall Tales in next
week's edition "A Walk in The Past," when
the Creeks are embroiled in a Civil War and
Seminoles become a separate Indian Nation
in Florida.

$15,000 offered in hunt for Panther shooter


Submitted to INI
A Florida Panther, listed as an endangered species, was discovered dead in
Hendry County from a gunshot wound. A reward is being offered in the search
for the shooter.


A reward of up to $15,200 is being of-
fered by a diverse group of organizations for
information that leads to an arrest and/or a
conviction in the shooting death of a Florida
panther.
The panther was found on April 21, 2009
near the Hendry Correctional Institute on
private property bordering the Big Cypress
National Preserve, in Hendry County, Fla. ,
The panther is believed to have been shot
within a Week prior to its discovery.
U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (USFWS)
special agents and Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission (FWC) investiga-
tors are jointly investigating the case.
There are only about 100 Florida panthers
left in the world.
The Florida panther is protected under

that each year it gets somewhat easier to get
out of the Muck.
Many have decided to continue their edu-
cation at various college institutions through-
out the nation, while others are seeking to
take up a trade to further their career plans.
Regardless of what they do with their
lives, one thing can never be taken away
from them.
They are your Class of 2009 high school
graduates.

class, including those who are going on to
* play college sports.
The Class of 2009 from Glades Central
High School reportedly received a combined
scholarship award total of over $2,6 million,
while Pahokee's 2009 graduates received
over $200,000 in combined scholarship
monies.
SGlades Day School did not release their
combined academic scholarship totals by
press time.
The aforementioned amounts are aca-
demic-based and do not include the scholar-
ship dollars awarded to those who are going

By Jeni Dyess
Every parent wants the best for their child.
You do everything in your power to ensure
your children grow up happy, healthy, and
have the best opportunities you can provide.
Most parents would not intentionally risk the
health or safety of their child.
However, sometimes things we do as
adults affect our children more than we real-
ize.
If you're a smoker, someone in your
household smokes, or you frequent places
where smoking is allowed with your child,
you're putting them at risk.
When a cigarette is smoked, about half
the smoke is inhaled and exhaled by the
smoker. The other half floats around in the
air. This combination of smoke is known
as environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) or
more commonly, secondhand smoke.
ETS plays a role in more health problems
than you might be aware of-not only for
adults, but for children as well.
Did you know children who breathe in
secondhand smoke have more chronic re-
spiratory symptoms such as coughing and
wheezing, and more cases of bronchial in-
fection?


They are also more likely to suffer from
dental cavities, eye and nose irritation, and
irritability. Exposure to ETS causes fluid to
buildup in the middle ear, resulting in almost
1.6 million doctor's office visits each year.
More trips to the doctor may translate to
increased medical/insurance expense and
loss of work time for the parent.
Even if you choose to smoke outside the
home or only in your home or car when
your children aren't with you, they're still
being exposed to toxins.
The January issue of Pediatrics magazine
revealed the results of a study done by re-
searchers at MassGeneral Hospital for Chil-
dren on thirdhand smoke.
Toxic particles from tobacco smoke get
lodged in a smoker's hair, clothing, and sur-
faces such as fabric, carpet, etc.
These particles contain chemical com-
pounds which have been classified by the
Environmental Protection Agency as Group
A carcinogens, meaning there is sufficient
evidence in humans proving these substanc-
es cause cancer.
Small children are more susceptible to
thirdhand smoke exposure because they
can inhale near, crawl and play on, or touch


it Smoking
and mouth contaminated surfaces. For ex-
ample, a smoker picks up a baby and holds
it to their chest after they've been outside for
a cigarette. The baby is breathing in third-
hand smoke from their shirt.
Smoking is the leading cause of prevent-
able death.
Every year more than 5 million people die
because of tobacco, many of them victims of
secondhand smoke. Florida's Clean Indoor
Air Act prohibits smoking in enclosed indoor
workplaces, which covers most buildings
open to the public.
You can ask smokers not to smoke in
your home and car. It's okay to ask a per-
son not to smoke. No one has the right to
smoke in your vehicle or home without your
permission.
Protect yourself and your loved ones
from secondhand and thirdhand smoke. For
more information on how you or a loved
one can quit smoking in 2009, contact the
Glades County Health Department at 863-
946-0707 and ask for Angelica Pefia X 220
or the Florida Quitline, the state cessation
hotline.
A counselor is waiting to speak to you.

Not into you, or not there
(yet)? Maybe a crucial differ-
ence
By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I remember walking through a toy store
with my daughter one day.
She found a doll she wanted. I asked her
"What do you think it costs?"
She was about three years old and her
answer was "Three monies."
She made the connection between buy-
ing and money; not exactly the right answer
but in the ball park.
I was amused by her choice of "three," a
good Trinitarian number likely to be bandied
about in a clergy household.
She got the doll; it cost more than three
monies. It wasn't that her answer was
wrong; the importance was that she was on
the way'to a better answer.
Soon the price tags would take on a new
meaning; the concept of dollars and cents
would be hers. Soon she might know about
sales tax and waiting for special sales; but
this day her best vocabulary and her best un-
derstanding was that "three monies" were
involved.
She was where she was at; at her appro-
priate place for her age and development.
She was "right" in her own way and that
was all that mattered.
.Adults are like that too. They grow at
their own pace and in their own way. We
encounter them and they are elsewhere, in-
volved in things that don't interest us, at a
different level of maturity.
Before the movie came out about "He's
just not that into you" I saw a similar presen-
tation on TV The idea that one person would
not be involved or committed to a relation-
ship when the other was working on it and
seeking commitment was seen as tragic.
No doubt it has a tragic side; a great dis-
appointment when one person is commit-
ted and the other is not.
I wonder, though, if a better understand-
ing could come when it is expressed as "He
is just not there (yet)."
Perhaps one person is more mature;
growing at a different pace than the other,
maybe one person is incapable of making
the commitment desired.
I see people growing in faith at different
degrees, different paces; they're making a
journey, (and aren't we all?) A man comes
to the Lord and asks "Teacher, what good
thing must I do to inherit eternal life? (Mat-
thew 19:16)."
After being told to keep the command-
ments, the man assured Jesus that he-does
so, and asks "What do I still lack? (v.20)>"
He is advised to sell all his possessions and
"then come, follow me.(v.21)."
The price is too high: the man goes away
sad. The disciples who witnessed this scene
ask "Who then can be saved? (v. 25)" and
the answer is "With man this is impossible,
but with God all things are possible (v.26)."
Was the man not "into" the Lord, or was
he simply "not there yet"?
I choose to see the latter understanding
and have seen it many times since.


SOne way implies guilt arid having to mea-
sure up; the other acknowledges what the
disciples saw. It's worth knowing the differ-
ence and "doing likewise."

An answer in the midst of
life's questions
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
My idea of cleaning the house is sweep-
ing the floor with a glance, but yesterday as
I was making the motions of cleaning out
one of my files, I stumbled across a collec-
tion of humorous questions that still stump
philosophers today.
Why do toasters always have a setting
that burns toast to a horrible crisp which no
normal person would eat?
Why is there a light in the fridge and not
in the freezer?
If Jimmy cracks corn and no one cares,
Why is there a song about him?
Why do the Alphabet song and Twinkle,
Twinkle Little Star have the same tune?
If the professor on Gilligan's Island can
make a radio out of coconuts, why can't he
fix a hole in a boat?
Is Disney World the only people trap op-
erated by a mouse?
Why does Goofy stand erect while Pluto
remains on all fours? They're both dogs!
Why is a person that handles your money
called a 'Broker?' Why is it that by the time
you find greener pastures, you can't climb
the fence?
Why is it that when someone tells you
there are over a billion stars in the universe,
you believe them, but if they tell you there is
wet paint somewhere, you have to touch it
to make sure? ,
Why is it that when you blow in a dog's
face, he doesn't like it, but when you take
him on a car ride, he sticks his head out the
window?
Aren't you glad in a world full of ques-
tions we have an answer?
In the words of Andrea Crouch, "Jesus is
the answer for-the world today. Above him
there's no other, Jesus is the way.
Jesus is the answer for the world today.
Above him there's no other, Jesus is the
way"
"If you have some questions in the cor-
ners of your mind, and traces of discourage-
ment and peace you can not find. Reflection
of the old past, they seem to face you every
day. There's one thing I know for sure that
Jesus is the way."
"I know you got mountains that you think
you can not climb. I know that your skies
have been dark, You think the sun won't
shine. In case you don't know, I'm heie to
tell you that the Word of God is true, and
everything that He's promised, I tell you He
would do it for you.
"Jesus is the answer for the world today.
Above Him there's no other, Jesus is the
way!" Let's all sing it!

Fathers take heed!
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Exodus 20:5-6 it says: "For I the lord
your God am a jealous God, visiting the in-
iquity of the FATHERS upon the CHILDREN


to the third and fourth generations of those
who hate me."
Did you get that? If Dads fail in provid-
ing Biblical leadership within the home, the
price of delinquent fathering will be passed
down 3 to 4 generations!
Is that not what we see taking place in
America? Drug dealers are 3 generations
thick! Prisons are filled with one generation
of criminals after another.
We have more and more single moms
who are taking billions of dollars from the
federal government.
And dads, it's not just enough to be
around the house, God wants you to set a
proper example and provide sound Biblical
Teaching to your children. Deuteronomy 6:7
says to Fathers: "You shall teach them (God's
commandments) diligently to your children
and shall talk of them when you, sit in your
house, when you walk by the way, when
you lie down, and when your rise up."
Ephesian 6:4 says: "And ye Fathers, pro-
voke not your children to wrath; but bring
them up in the nurture and admonition of
the Lord."
Its time for dads across America to recog-
nize the difference between a drop-in Dad
that is one who only comes by when there
is a crisis mom can't handle, the sperm do-
nor, who only sees his job as one who pro-
creates then bolts; and the Biblical Dad.
He is the man who weeps when he con-
siders the awesome task of rearing godly
children in this depraved world. He is the
man who shows his children every day that
their mom is first in his life.


He is the Father who always put the needs
of his family over his own selfish whims and
desires.. The Biblical Dad is the kind of man
that shudders when he hears terms like, "It
takes a village to raise our kids." He knows
that the village idiots in Washington are the
reason we are in this moral free-fall.
He loathes the very thought of the school
system or government raising his kids be-
cause he knows full well it is his God-given
responsibility.
Dr. Dobson said it best in his book, "Rais-
ing Them Right". "Children thrive best in an
atmosphere of genuine love, under girded
by reasonable, consistent discipline. In a
day of widespread drug usage, immorality,
sexually transmitted disease, vandalism, and
violence, we must not depend on hope and
luck to fashion the critical attitude we value
in our children."
So, Dad, let's look in the faces of our
children and realize this one fact. They will
be no more or produce nothing more than
what we as Dads have invested in them.
Zero instructions, with little or no Biblical
example, little time with half-hearted love,
will indeed produce a generation of children
starving for identity and purpose.
Dad, let's step it up and reclaim our right-
ful position in the home the spiritual leader
God called us to be.

Weaver is the nation's top Shortie g

Damon Weaver went out of his way to thank U.S. Vice-President Joe Biden, Can
tary School principal LaVoise Smith, Brian Zimmerman, his mother, Regina W
Pahokee for his Shortie Award win on Saturday, June 6 in Washington, D.C.


Kid reporter hopes
President Obama will come
to the Glades

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
WASHINGTON, D.C. Damon Weaver
has officially cemented his status as a bona-
fide journalist sensation.
He felt 'very good' about going to Wash-
ington, D.C. for a second time last weekend
after picking up a national honor for daily
news reporting.
Damon is now a.Shortie Award winner -
he was selected as a honoree in the Elemen-
tary School category.
KEC TV, the media outlet for Canal Point
Elementary School, won the national award
for best daily news reporting in the elemen-
tary school category.
Damon, through KEC TV has interviewed
the likes of Dwayne Wade, Anquan Boldin
and Larry Fitzgerald, Oprah Winfrey, Samuel
L. Jackson, LL Cool J, and most famously,
Vice President Joe Biden, which likely
clinched the award for the kid reporter.
HB TV, out of Arlington, Va., was the oth-
er finalist.
Vice President Biden sent Damon a con-
gratulatory letter, which was read at the
Shortie Awards shortly after the 10-year-old
was named the winner.
"Damon, you are most deserving of this
award," Biden wrote in his letter to the 10-
year-old.
"As you already know, your interview
caught the eye of many people in the press
and even more people on the Internet.
"If it remains your passion, I think you are
going to make a fine anchorman as you get
older," he continued.
"I encourage you to continue improv-
ing your skills and never stop pursuing your
dreams."
The 10-year-old kid reporter, a Canal
Point Elementary School student, was ac-


companies by his mother, Regina Weaver,
his media instructor, Brian Zimmerman and
his principal, LaVoise Smith in the weekend
trip to the nation's capital.
More exposure for Damon
Though Damon was 'surprised and lucky
about winning a Shortie Award', it may not
have been his only victory.
According to Zimmerman, it looks like
Damon's chances of interviewing President
Barack Obama may have increased after
meeting Corey Ealons, the communications
director for the U.S. president.
Ealons, who's also the media director for
the Black News Media Group, took Damon
and his party on a tour of the White House
last Saturday (June 6), the day of the Shortie
Awards.
They saw the West Wing of the Oval Of-
fice, the location where President Obama
'builds his business on', as told by Zimmer-
man.
The foursome also got the chance to
tour the White House press secretary's of-
fice, the location where Robert Gibbs, the
White House press secretary, organizes the
national media to hold interviews and press
conferences with President Obama.
To conclude the hour-long viewing of the
White House, the group toured the Rose
Garden, which Damon liked a whole lot.
"I don't think too many people get to see
something like that," Zimmerman said.
"It was very special."
Damon co-signed Zimmerman's take on
the White House tour.
Here is Damon's impression of it, in his
own words:
"The Rose Garden smelled very good and
it had a lot of pretty roses," Damon said.
"The Oval Office was cool because it
was big and a lot of important presidents
have sat there, including [President] Barack
Obama."
The day before June 5 Damon saw
some more television time as he was inter-
viewed by MSNBC media personalities Nora


E '11~8~sim~ -~, 4%S~


N\


O'Donnell and Chris
Matthews, who's the
host of the popular
commentary show
'Hardball'.
With all the media
attention Damon's
been getting over the
past year he even was
recently offered a full
scholarship to Albany
State Universit (Ga.)
he's confident that
President Obama will
grant him his wish.
As a matter of
fact, Damon said he
wouldn't be surprised
if President Obama
one day comes to visit
his hometown of Pa-
hokee.
"If. [President]
of www.YouTube.com Obama comes to the
al Point Elemen- Muck, a lot of people
weaver, and all of will be excited," Da-
mon said.
"I'm pretty sure he'll
come out here when he's the president and
when he does, I'll be the first person to in-
terview him."
