Is purchase of



U.S. Sugar dead?


In wake of judge's
decision, Sugar, state
prepared for
supreme court ruling

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
The Clewiston News
A Miami federal judge's self-
labeled impatience with the pace
of restoration projects in the Ev-
erglades Agriculture Area may be
one indication that the state's pro-
posed purchase of U.S. Sugar a
project now well into its second
year of negotiations and dead-
line extensions -- has reached its
apex.
The judge last Thursday or-
dered the district to redirect its
efforts on a $700 million to $800
million reservoir project in West-
ern Palm Beach County -- which
seems to thrust another wrench
in the South Florida Water Man-


agement District's plans to pur-
chase U.S. Sugar's lands.
The district finds itself address-
ing just how it expects to pay for
the $536 million purchase of an
initial 73,000 acres of land, while
still-hurting property values con-
tinue putting a dent in its tax-
supported budget. Recent reports
have focused on the district's hav-
ing to delay, suspend or altogeth-
er scrap certain projects, possibly
even selling some of its land, to
help pay for the purchase.
The Miami judge's ruling is
now another powerful consider-
ation.
Is the Sugar deal dead? By the
time this newspaper is printed,
the public may know.
Strong opposition from Florida
Crystals and the Miccosukee Tribe
has seen U.S. Sugar and the district
defending, or having to answer
tough questions about whether

The changing
persona of librarians
and libraries

By Ashley Causey
Special to The Sun
As soon as the door opens, the
place becomes a realm of soli-
tude.
The destination is shielded
from the multitude of sounds out-
doors; it is a place of silence and
knowledge.


Students, or retirees, or those in
after-hours leisure type away, but
cannot subdue a book crying out
to be read.
And at the center of it all is its
faithful protector: the librarian.
Although the role of the librar-
ian to the untrained eye may be
mundane, it involves more than
just shelving books.
Once perceived as old, mean
and menacing, the stereotype of li-
brarians has given way to a young-
er, friendlier breed.
Ms. Willena Russell is the per-


fect example of the changing per-
sona of the librarian.
She describes why she chose
this profession.
"Originally I was pursuing a
degree in Criminal Justice, but my
aunt referred this job to me. Now
I have been an active librarian for
four years."
She continues by stating, "I'm
glad I took this job, I honestly like
it."
The list of misconceptions
about librarians is long, but ac-
cording to Ms. Russell the top mis-


conceptions include the myth that
they are mean, and that librarians
only shout "Shhh! No talking" to
rowdy patrons.
"I was even charged with being
mean and never smiling, but I am
not like that at all."
Ms. Russell does admit that she
gives 'the look' to several of the
library visitors when they misbe-
have.
"Life is about chances. I give
chances all the time to the visitors
but sometimes when I give people

Center brings 'hope close to home'


Hope HealthCare Services has succeeded
in "bringing Hope close to home" for thou-
sands of residents of eastern Lee, Glades
and Hendry counties. Construction is now
complete on the Hope HealthCare Services
Center in Lehigh Acres, the only health care
center of its kind in the state of Florida.
More than 600 people attended a two-day
open house event at the Center, on March 30
and 31.
"The opening of the Center represents a
major landmark for Hope in enhancing the
care we offer to so many people in need," ac-
cording to Hope President and CEO Samira
K. Beckwith. "This is a gift of time for every-
one in the area no more long hours driving
to other hospice houses and care facilities
for services or to visit loved ones."
Set to open in mid-April, the Center will
serve eastern Lee County, including Buck-
ingham, Alva, Gateway, Lehigh Acres and
Pelican Preserve, as well as Hendry and
Glades counties.
The 45,000 square-foot Center includes:
24 individual care suites for hospice
patients
Respite areas for loved ones of the pa-
tients
An Adult Day Health Center, offering
Hope Select Care, a Program of All-inclusive
Care for the Elderly (PACE), where approxi-
mately 50 frail and elderly clients will receive
care and support each day
A Community Education Center which
will offer, among other programs, education
for family caregivers
Bereavement counseling offices
Offices for home care teams and vol-
unteers, who serve hundreds of people
throughout the area
The Center will also serve as a hurricane

Designed to meet the ongoing needs of
Florida's growing and changing population,
Beckwith described the Center as "the future
of health care."
"We are absolutely thrilled to be able to
serve the community in this unique way,"
Beckwith said. "We are deeply grateful to
everyone who has supported us in this im-
portant project."
The Hope HealthCare Services Center is


located at 1201 Wings Way in Lehigh Acres,
on five acres of land donated by the Com-
munity Health Association.

Starfish Christians
By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
When the earliest fishermen found a thriving
population of starfish munching big holes in the
mussel, clam, and oyster beds they were 11 1 ,._
they simply hacked up the greedy little starfish into
bits and tossed them back into the sea.
Big mistake. Before they new it, these early fish-
ermen were up to their hips in the slow moving
little suckers. One of the first lessons learned in early
aquaculture was "Don't cut up the starfish!"
Whack one starfish in two and what do you get?
Two starfish! Hack one starfish into five chunks and
you get five starfish. All a starfish needs to regenerate
a whole new creature is one arm and a smidgen of
the central disk of its body. A starfish can "re-mem-
ber" itself. It can form a completely new, whole star-
fish out of a small start.
Resurrection Christians are like starfish. It's after
Easter, but as long as we take with us the defining
miracle of an empty tomb, we can "re-member" the
body of Christ anywhere, anytime, in every age, no
matter how dismembered they may become. The
new incarnations of Christ's body might not have
perfect symmetry. They might need to work on co-
..,,iihi ih._. all of their new parts. But as long as the
"re-membering" of the dismembered continues, the
body will keep growing.
Jesus' resurrection triumph over death was once-
and-for-all, but the role of the witnesses continues


over and over again. As the Easter morning angelic
visitors instructed the empty tomb witnesses, the
first work of resurrection faith is to remember. Re-
member Christ's words. Remember Christ's stories.
Remember Christ's signs. Remember Christ's prom-
ises. It is this remembering that will "re-member"
each new .- .. i .... to the empty tomb and the
miracle of resurrection. It is this remembering that
will "re-member" the gospel within the heart of ev-
ery disciple.
Those who have seen the empty tomb must
spend their lives Ir ii, ;.. resurrection. Fir ii ..
resurrection means re-telling the story of the Good
Friday sacrifice and the Easter morning miracle again
and again throughout our entire life.
Even when recounting the resurrection seems to
bring no real results, we are still called to practice
and to keep p "i i i. We are still called to witness
and keep witnessing to the world. We are called to
continuously work resurrection faith into every cor-
ner of our lives.
We serve not just a risen Savior. We serve a rising
Savior. More than that, we serve a continually rising
Savior who enables all who embrace resurrection
to rise to every occasion. Jesus defeats death daily.
His resurrection is a continual miracle replayed and
rewound for every ..i. . i.... for every situation,
and for everyone who reaches out in the darkness in
search of the light and for every dis-membered per-
son who needs re-membering.
Thanks be to God who can take little and make


Resurrection Editorial
By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
I read somewhere, "What would the Editor of
the Jerusalem Daily News have written following
the Resurrection of Jesus Christ?" The Editorial went
some like this:
"The startling event reported on these pages is
the main topic of conversation in the city today is al-
most unbelievable. Two comments are in order. First,
we should remember that our prophets in centuries
gone by have predicted our Messiah would rise from
the dead. You recall that our great king David said in
his sixteenth psalm, 'For thou wilt not leave my soul
in Sheol; neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to
see corruption."
Since David did not escape corruption, these
words could not apply to him. Our scholars agree
that these words apply to the Messiah. Secondly, we
should remember that this Jesus on many occasions
openly stated that he would rise the third day after
His death.
Our chief priest apparently were the only ones
who took his words seriously. Our religious lead-
ers urged the death of Jesus on the ground of blas-
phemy that he had said he was equal to God. It
hardly seems likely that Jehovah would honor a
blasphemer by allowing him to rise from the dead.
And there have been too many witnesses to doubt
his resurrection.

HEALTHCARE







Hendry County, get ready to say so long to cigarettes


By Glenda Wilson
Every smoker has plenty of good reasons
to quit, but most times a person just can't
do it alone. They don't have to Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center is here to help.
This past January, the hospital (and its
campuses) became a smoke-free healthcare
institution, and David Theroux, Cardiopul-
monary Director, has been scheduling and
conducting "Quit Smoking Now" classes
-each consisting of six free smoking cessa-
tion sessions for the public.
Now, Hendry Regional is in a position to
do even more. The Florida Department of
Health (Bureau of Tobacco Prevention) has
recently awarded approximately $800,000 to
the hospital.
Marilyn Leeds, Executive Director of the
Lake Okeechobee Rural Health Network
(LORHN), was instrumental in helping
the hospital to receive this smoking cessa-


tion grant from the Florida Department of
Health. After discussing the possibilities
with Craig Cudworth (who at that time was
the hospital CEO), last year, Marilyn took it
upon herself to document the needs of the
county and write the proposal. It paid off,
when, less than three months later, Hendry
Regional Medical Center became the proud
recipient of this fantastic opportunity.
Hendry Regional Medical Center will now
begin working diligently with the services of
a Grant Manager, Supervisor of Cessation
Services, Cessation Specialist, and Program
Coordinator to fulfill the conditions and
scope of work, as specified by the grant.
The hospital will focus on:
Employees Promoting the smoke-
free campus through incentive programs,
tobacco-free policies, orientation, commu-
nications, training and health benefits.
Patients Providing education and re-


sources for addressing tobacco use.
Visitors Respectfully enforcing the
tobacco-free policy.
General Public Informing and educat-
ing the community of all available free smok-
ing cessation/tobacco-free services and ma-
terial such as nicotine replacement therapy,
based on eligibility (patches gum, etc).
Community Collaboration Partnering
with other organizations such as the Ever-
glades Area Health Education Center, Hen-

Religion
Continued From Page 1

The only logical conclusion is that Jesus is our
promised Messiah. To acknowledge this lowly Galile-
an as the Son of God and our Redeemer will be very
difficult to do. We looked for a conquering king. Yet
we can see in Jesus the fulfilment of the ceremonies
that we have observed in our temple for thousands
of years.
Some of our leaders have now publicly stated
that they are believers. Nicodemus, one of our hon-
ored rulers openly aided in the burial of Jesus. It will
be a serious indictment on us if we stubbornly refuse
to admit the fact of the resurreciton, or if we admit
the fact and do not accept all that it implies."
Well, on the day of Pentecost, just 50 days after
the resurrection, Peter preached the gospel for the
first time. Three thousand responded by 1, i. pi,,'-.
of their sins and being baptized for remission of sins
to receive the Holy Spirit. Thus Christ's Church was
begun and continues on today!

... And they lived happily
ever after... And they did! Af-
ter easter
By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was visiting someone one afternoon
who told me her daughters were coming to visit and
then began to cry. I asked her "Why are you crying?
This should be a happy time!" She answered "Be-
cause I will miss them so much when they leave
. ....' I had learned that she had other problems
and disappointments; apparently which had seri-
ously affected her and caused her great difficulties.
The fear i .. i.... coming to an end" paralyzed
her more than it does for most of us.
We'd always look forward to vacations, knowing
that they too would come to an end, but that didn't
keep us from enjoying them. I have shared with many
their looking forward to retirement; a kind of "vaca-
tion that doesn't come to an end" and have been
I .ii 1. -. .1 to see many who enjoy their later years
doing things they've dreamed about in the past, and
now can share and accomplish with loved ones.
We've just celebrated Easter and the message
is that there will come a time when we have those
special moments, and they don't come to an end!
Many people I know live doing what is required to be
able tdo what is fulfilling or enriching and refresh
ing; a long weekend away, a holiday celebration with
family and loved ones, a trip with the kids to a theme
park, and then back to work.
The days traded off are a worldly necessity; the
hope is for the time when we will one day find a
place to celebrate with loved ones, and where time
won't be limited. That day is ours too. The place is
called "Heaven" and we're God's adopted inheritors.
We will be set free and become "servants to God,
the benefit you reap leads to holiness, and the result
is eternal life (Romans 6:22)" Now, as we return to
"after Easter" and "back to work," it's great to know
that Easter will go on; and will not end the message
off i ;ii ,ii ,. i.i.. ..to God andwillsharewith
Him one day, and that day will not end.
We spend our days putting away for the vacation,
having a few extra dollars to spend during that special
time and saving "days off" to extend it as long as we
can. We prI I ii .i ii 1._ i, clothes for the special
trip, getting the house ready to close for a few days or
weeks, and making sure that the mail is stopped and
the lawn is cut. Likewise, this life is a time to prepare
for the day when we will be away and to make our
plans to be ready for that life to come.
The things we do are what we can do to get
ready for our Easter, our resurrection to a new and
greater life one that does not come to an end and
one where the message "Well done thou good and
faithful servant" will be ours to hear, too.

Pahokee Elementary School
Hispanic Heritage Month Celebration
In celebration of Cinco de Mayo, Paho-
kee Elementary School is sponsoring La Ker-
messe on Friday, May 7, 2010. Kermesse is a
french word that came through Veracruz in
the Gulf of Mexico when the port of Vera-
cruz became an important trading market in
America. This was a pagan celebration and
it became a common name for School par-
ties in Mexico. The objective is for families
to enjoy time together and share food, and
games. It is much likely a Fair, with Spaniard
Traditions and Mexican food all over!!!! Stu-
dents will enjoy La Kermesse during their
fine arts block on Friday. Tickets for the cel-
ebration are $.50 each. The community is
invited to come and share with us this cel-
ebration of Hispanic Heritage.
Kindergarten round-up
Pahokee Elementary School will hold its
annual Kindergarten Round-Up on Wednes-
day, May 5 at 5 p.m. in the media center.
All parents of new students to Pahokee El-
ementary will need the child's physical and
shot record, proof of residency (a utility bill
with your name and street address or rental
agreement in your name) and child's birth

Census 2010
Pahokee Elementary School recently celebrated Census Week from March
22 through March 25. During this time, teachers taught the students about
the information gained from the Census reports and what impact the census
has on our local community. The week was concluded with a Census Assem-
bly on Thursday, March 25. The school had a performance by the PES Cheer-
leaders, a guest speaker from the U.S. Census Bureau along with community
business partners, Pahokee Beacon Center and Zeta Phi Beta Sorority, Inc.
The students learned that during the 2000 Census only 46 percent of the
census forms were returned from the city of Pahokee. The students left the
assembly knowing that "we can't move forward, until we mail it back."

an inch; they take a mile," she said.
"Librarians are not the mean type; we de-
mand respect just like you do."
Another misconception? That librarians
have no social lives.
"I do have a social life," Ms. Russell re-
futes. "Yes, I do more than just read books
after I clock out. Throughout the week I
spend time with my boyfriend and friends."
But she returns to the demands of her
job, and the qualities that characterize her
duties from day to day. In this, she laments
that while other libraries have benefitted
from an increase in their use during the re-
cession -- more and more people have cut
back and make more use of their public fa-
cilities -- to her it seems that there are less
people attending the Pahokee branch.
"Over the years, I have seen the atten-
dance decreasing at this branch." Ms. Rus-
sell admits. "I believe our decreasing atten-
dance is due to the fact that patrons need
library cards to sign on to the computers. In
the past, patrons only needed a guest pass.
Because of this, it has died down and no one
really has been coming in."
What seems like a ridiculous reason to
not use the library is actually the reason why
the Belle Glade library has had an increase
in attendance.
Mirasha Brown, a two year library page
at the Belle Glade branch, explains the in-
crease of adults and young people.
"Here at the Belle Glade branch, we have


guest passes for children who don't have li-
brary cards and adults who do not have a
library card can use the express computers,
which have a 15-minute time limit."
The lack of attendance is not the only
changing role of the Glades' libraries; the
reason behind the attendance is changing
too. Once a place used for the sole purpose
of checking out readable material, now has
became an establishment for checking the
latest updates of MySpace and Facebook
profiles.
Ms. Russell and Ms. Brown both agree
about the changing motives.
"Sad to say but out here in the Glades,
people visit our library because of the com-
puters. They really do not ask for books."
Ms. Russell said, not mincing words.
"The people who come to the library
use our computer for social purposes," Ms.
Brown agrees. "Very few people check out
books anymore."
Both branches are trying to combat this
troubling trend by hosting reading programs
and having new books for young adults,
which are having promising affects.
"At the Belle Glade branch, Ms. Brown
states, the turn out for our reading programs
are about 15 to 20 people."
Meanwhile Ms. Russell believes that the
Pahokee Branch's reading programs atten-
dance will grow with more time.
"We can lead a horse to water but we can-
not make that horse drink," Ms. Russell said
by shaking her head. "If people are stuck in
their ways, then there is nothing we can do,
but it's our job to encourage the youth that
it is OK to enjoy reading; a job that we are
doing the best we can."


rnoio/isniey tausey
Willena Russell, librarian of the Loula V. York branch said that the life of a librar-
ian is more than just supervising rowdy readers.

Purchase

Continued From Page 1

or not the purchase is needed at all.
Lawyers for both the tribe and Florida
Crystals prepared to ask the Florida Supreme
Court not to validate the bonds the district
needed to move forward with the purchase
this past Wednesday; arguing, among other
things, whether there is a public need asso-
ciated with the purchase of the huge swath
of land.
On one side, representatives for the two
organizations vilify the governor for his po-
litical aspirations, and U.S. Sugar, for craft-
ing a "too-sweet" deal in its favor. U.S. Sugar
is indebted and they are looking for a way
out at a significant cost to taxpayers, some
argue.
The governor, who announced the state's
intent to purchase the company nearly two
years ago, has defended himself in published
reports, saying that the purchase is needed
to save the Everglades.
Meanwhile, U.S. Sugar shoots back at
their rivals, saying that those groups are mo-
tivated not by a sense of honest environmen-
talism, but of profiteering, and resentment
that they weren't included in the deal.
Even members of the district board weigh
in: "Citizens following the U.S. Sugar acqui-
sition have witnessed these special interests
... attempting to turn what is usually a rou-
tine legal review into a stage for distorting
the facts," writes Eric Buermann, chairman
of the district's governing board. "None of
these detractors, nor their well-publicized

Public Hearing


The Hendry County Housing
Authority has developed it's Five
Year and 2010 Annual Plan for HUD
and revised it's Section 8
Administrative Plan. The Plans can
be reviewed at the following loca-
tions for review and comment for 45
days starting April 9, 2010:
Clewiston Satellite Office, 100 East El
Paso, Clewiston; and the Social
Services Office, 165 South Lee
Street, LaBelle. On May 25, 2010,the
Hendry county Board of County
Commissioners will hold a public
hearing after 5:00 PM for public
comment and approval at the fol-
lowing location: Hendry County
Courthouse, Commission Board

spin, will distract the courts from their me-
thodical review and, hopefully, will not fool
the public who for the large part support the
purchase."
During a Tuesday media phone confer-
ence, environmentalists said the need to
move forward was great; that they hoped
the supreme court would rule in the state's
favor.
"To get a foothold in the EAA has been
the dream of 35 years," said Nathaniel Reed,
vice chair of the Everglades Foundation. Ad-
dressing concerns that the land acquisition
is only one part of the issue, that funding
must still be secured even after the purchase
of the initial 73,000 acres -- and some say the
figure may be in the double-digit billions of
dollars -- to restore the flow way, Mr. Reed
called it "the first step toward connecting the
lake to the Glades and cleaning the water as
it naturally flows south ... as God has made
it flow south."
The issue of utmost importance to en-
vironmentalists is finding an alternative
solution to discharges to coastal estuaries.
Because there is an emphasis placed on
keeping the lake at a manageable level, ad-
dressing concerns of the ability of the de-
cades-old earthen dike to hold back higher
levels of water, the excess water is drained
through the estuaries into the ocean. This
process damages those estuaries through

said makes the rivers "turn green and the

Other questions remain. Where will
that funding to restore the natural flow way
come from? Will that come from the state,
the water district, or federal government?
