Judge's idea may save money


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
Hoping to relieve the
expense of housing inmates at
the county jail, Judge James
Sloan's proposal to implement
a probationary program has
drawn criticism from at least
one person who thinks it's a
step in the wrong direction.
Kirk Jameson, who spoke out
about the issue during the Feb.
13 Hendry County Board of Com-
missioners meeting, said the plan


has several faults that could keep
it from working how it should.
At the heart of the issue, Judge
Sloan said, is the skyrocketing
expense of keeping an inmate
incarcerated. With each inmate
costing the county an estimated
$18,200 per year, the judge said a
program to closely monitor the
would-be inmates could help the
county realize savings.
The judge is proposing an
intensive supervisory program
that would release inmates until
their trial date.


The program would be fund-
ed partly by fees charged to the
inmates, the rest paid for by
taxes.
Judge Sloan said not all
inmates would be eligible for
release - he is continuing to set
the parameters for who would
and would not qualify for release
- and even then, the intensive
system of case management
would carefully monitor all
inmates on release.
"Those defendants will have
to be in constant contact with


A unique event: Community baby shower


INI/Ideybis Gonzalez
"Mmmm, milk it does your body good" here are two of the contestant of the milk-feed-
ing contest at the Community Baby Shower on Thursday, Feb. 22. The community baby
shower provided expecting and new mothers with hellf'uTlToal resources information
and services, educational materials and supplies to help get the community's children
off to a healthy start in life. The event was hosted by the Hendry County Health Depart-
ment with the help of charitable agencies.

Participants of the baby-feeding contest rushed down the baby food to win a prize at the
community baby shower on Thursday, Feb. 22 at the Hendry County Health Department.
A total of 23 agencies were present at the community baby shower showing their sup-
port, Family Services Network, Healthy Start, Catholic Charities, Goodwill's just to men-
tioned a few.


case management personnel,"
the judge said in a telephone
interview last week.
But Judge Sloan understands
that the program would not solve
the problem, but help to alleviate
some of the burden of the prison
system. The county stands to
save more than $500,000 if the
program is adopted by county
commissioners, the judge said.
Some, however, don't think
releasing inmates is a viable
solution.
Mr. Jameson argued that the


local prison is more directly
affected by the backlog of cases
that are the result of not having
enough judges and state attor-
neys to handle the proceedings.
Judge Sloan, meanwhile,
agrees.
"I totally agree with Mr. Jame-
son that we don't have enough
judges and state attorneys," said
the judge, "but that is not up to
me to decide."

weapon


Officer's gun was
lost during pursuit

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - In a recent
on-foot pursuit, a Clewiston
Police Officer lost his gun.
. On Sunday, Feb. 11, Officer
Curtis Clay was dispatched to the
area of South W.C. Owens near
Sugarland Mobile Home Park in
reference to a complaint about
teenaged boys shooting paint
balls at the homes.
When he got to the location,
the officer noticed a group of
individuals who started running


in different directions.
Officer Clay pursued the sus-
pects on foot, chasing two of
them .behind one of the mobile
homes.
As Officer Clay started search-
ing for the two individuals he
noticed two males trying to hide
behind objects lying around the
mobile home. When they saw
the officer, the suspects took off
again.
The pursuit lasted for several
blocks, while the suspects ran
through the park and the officer
followed closely. Suddenly, he
lost view of both of the suspects.
When he returned to the sta-

seeking input



on CRA plan


Community input is
vital in planning

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - The City of
Clewiston has hired MJA Con-
sulting, LLC, to prepare its Com-
prehensive Redevelopment Area
plan.
The city discussed the subject
on Feb. 23 at the Clewiston
Country Club, with business
leaders and residents attending
to discuss the preparation of the


updated CRA plan for Clewiston.
MJA Consulting is tasked with
preparing the visioning plan that
will take a look at many of the
city's most important planning
efforts - some of which
accounts for the direction the
city is headed in the next 30
years.
The city kick-started the plan
back in 2004, when leaders
agreed it was time to create a
redevelopment initiative that
would be accepted by residents
and business leaders.

Fundraiser dedicated


to Doc Keei
By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON - To honor
the memory of Kenneth
Wayne Keen, more commonly
and affectionately known
around town as "Doc Keen,"
two kids will do their best to
raise a good steer.
The steer, which will be a
months-long project for the
two kids, will be sold to raise
funds for a scholarship pro-
gram in the doctor's name.
Jamar Boykins and Kim
Fielder, both Clewiston High
School students, are working
hard to get the steer in as best
shape as possible in time for its
sale during the Hendry County
Fair later this month. Their
work, in the end, will deter-


mine just how much money
will be made available to help
local students get into college.
Doc Keen represented the
community well throughout his
career as a veterinarian in
Clewiston. The 27-year volun-
teer leader with the Hendry
County 4-H also volunteered
with the Glades County 4-H and
was a member of the Hendry
County and Glades County Cat-
tleman's Association.
He died last year in a tragic
fire accident.
The Hendry County Fair
Board, where Doc Keen served
as a director for some time, is
providing the steer for the sale.
The steer is expected to be sold
during the fair at an auction on

Two boys are raising this steer to sell in Doc Keen's memory. The funds from the sale will go
toward a scholarship fund.

HENDRY COUNTY - The
Hendry Glades Community Health
Fair will take place this year on Sun-
day, March 4, at Hendry Regional
Medical Center from 10 a.m. until 4
p.m. with gates closing at 3 p.m.
The free services include blood
pressure, glucose testing, mammo-
gram screening vouchers, bone
density test, eye and hearing
exams, HIV testing and education
as well as many other services. Par-
ticipants will be able to visit more
than 40 booths for additional edu-
cational information and materials.
As we have each year, volunteers
will hand out free BBQ to the partic-
ipants. A bounce house and clown
will be available for children to
enjoy. Door prizes will be given out
throughout the day.
Medical Students from Nova
Southeastern University School of
Osteopathic Medicine as well as
Physician Assistant, pharmacy,
dentistry, physical and occupation-
al therapy, audiology, and nursing.
Community physicians have volun-
teered their time to see patients and
supervise the students. Nova
Southeastern faculty will also be on
hand to provide services. Screen-


ings include blood pressure, glu-
cose, mammogram screening
vouchers, bone density tests,
eye/hearing exams, confidential
HIV testing, and many other servic-
es. This health fair has received
generous support from Hendry
Regional Medical Center, Riverside
Glades Medical Center, Hendry and
Glades County Commissioners, the
cities of Clewiston and Moore
Haven, as well as Community
organizations and volunteers.
There will be interpreters avail-
able if needed and Lake Okee-
chobee Rural Health Network
(LORHN) will be on hand to assist
with the prescription assistance pro-
gram, LEAPS. Participants will also
receive referrals for follow-up visits.
This is the fourth medical mis-
sion of its kind in the Hendry Glades
area. Each year medical providers
have seen hundreds of people from
infant to geriatrics. This is a great
opportunity for residents of this area
to get quality health care at no
charge. Many of our citizens can not
afford to see a health care provider
and this event will give them the
access they need. For more infor-
mation, contact (863)983-1123.

Letters to the Editor


Global warming a
major health concern
This weekend I rented a horror
movie - one that scared the living
daylights out of me and left me
sleepless in my bed. No, it wasn't a
movie about zombies or serial
killers, but something much more
sinister - global warming. I know,
it sounds silly, but the anxiety and
dread that I felt after watching the Al
Gore movie "An Inconvenient
Truth," was real, and I was left con-
vinced that our world and therefore
our health, is in serious danger if we
don't start making changes today.
So, what is global warming and
why did this movie scare me so
much? First, a little science: Carbon
dioxide and other gases warm the
surface of the planet naturally by
trapping solar heat in the atmos-
phere. This is a good thing because
it keeps our planet habitable. How-
ever, by burning fossil fuels such as
coal, gas and oil and clearing
forests we have dramatically
increased the amount of carbon
dioxide in the Earth's atmosphere
and temperatures are rising.
The vast majority of scientists
agree that global warming is real,
it's already happening and that it is
the result of our human activities
and not a natural occurrence. The
evidence is overwhelming and
undeniable. We're already seeing
changes. Glaciers are melting,
plants and animals are being
forced from their habitat and the
number of severe storms and
droughts is increasing.
If the warming continues, we
can expect catastrophic conse-
quences: Deaths from global
warming will double in just 25 years
- to 300,000 people a year, global
sea levels could rice by more than
20 feet with the loss of shelf ice in
Greenland and Antarctica, devastat-
ing coastal areas such as Florida.
During the movie, a map of Florida
was a depiction of what would hap-
pen if sea levels rise - even as far
inland as Immokalee and Clewiston
would be completely flooded.
But there is good news! Accord-
ing to the movie, there is no doubt
we can solve this problem and we
have a moral obligation to do so to
protect this world for our children
and grandchildren. First, small
changes to our daily routine can
add up to big differences in helping


to stop global warming. Buy a fuel-
efficient car with a higher mile-per-
gallon ratio or even a hybrid car.
Buy energy-efficient appliances.
Drive less and walk more. Use a
thermostat on your house that
turns the air conditioning off when
you are not home - I made this
simple change at my house and
shaved $100 per month off of my
electric bill a few months ago. Con-
serve electricity at home and work
and recycle whenever possible.
For more information, rent the
movie "An Inconvenient Truth." I
got it from NetFlix, but it is available
anywhere that movies are rented. I
urge teachers to show their classes
and families to watch it together.
Becoming aware of the problem is
the first step to finding a solution.
Contact your local, state and feder-
al representatives and urge them to
reduce greenhouse gases and find
alternate sources of energy before
it is too late. You can also go to cli-
matecrisis.net for more informa-
tion on how to make a difference.

Writer responds
to Johnson
In a recent letter accusing U.S.
Sugar's refinery of being responsi-
ble for his emphysema and other
ailments, Mr. Johnson admits to
having no scientific data to back
up his claims. That is because data
shows that respiratory issues like
emphysema are most likely
caused by years of smoking rather
than a couple of years of living in
the Glades.
I would like to assure the com-
munity that U.S. Sugar and its oper-
ations meet or exceed all.applica-
ble state and federal emission
standards for air quality. We have
spent tens of millions of dollars at
the Clewiston Mill facility for emis-
sions and pollution control. Our
newest boiler received an environ-
mental award for having the lowest
emissions of any bagasse-fired boil-
er in the world.
That being said, this is a farming
community that produces sugar,
citrus, cattle, beans and other
crops. During harvest season for
any crop, there is additional pollen,
dust and other agricultural material
in the air. In addition, it has been a
very dry winter, which makes area


soils more likely to kick up. If you
have a tendency to respiratory
problems or sensitivity, harvest sea-
son is probably going to exacerbate
your condition.
There is also significant con-
struction underway throughout
our community, including the
modernization of our Clewiston
milling facilities. Some areas near
the mill have experienced prob-
lems with bagasse or cane fibers
blowing around the site. We have
taken steps to correct these prob-
lems and reduce any inconven-
ience to our neighbors as the new
operations are completed.
Sincerely,
Peter Briggs
Vice President, Environmental
Compliance & Programs

Lake 0 woes
.. As one of the few who attended
the Lake Okeechobee meeting at
John Boy auditorium, I thought I
would share my impression of the
proceedings for the benefit of those
who did not attend.
As a boater and fisherman, the
major low water issues I had hoped
to hear about were the navigational
problems where even the edges of
marked channels have become
hazardous and the accumulated
muck bottom which has created
access and habitat problems.
The meeting unfolded as a dis-
cussion of aquatic plant manage-
ment and water shortage issues..
We now know what weeds are tar-
geted, what chemicals are used,
how to read a herbicide label, how
to mix herbicide. How the FDA
approves herbicides. All this leads
to the assertion that, at least theo-
retically, their weed control pro-
gram will not inadvertently poison
everyone within a hundred miles of
the lake. In response to earlier pub-
lic concerns, they have improved
their oversight of the herbicide con
tractors. As to low water concerns,
the lake is dropping 6 inches a
month due to evaporation.
Since the anticipated new water
release master plan will likely result
in ongoing low lake levels during
the dry season, millions of dollars
are being. spent on new pumps to
enable water releases at lower
water levels than we have historic.
cally experienced.
This latter point made it even


more urgent to discuss the major
issues to boaters and
fishermen...but not a peep!
Finally, Mary Ann Martin asked
specifically about the issues facing
boaters and fishermen in the south
end of the lake. The side step by the
presenters was so vigorous, I'm
sure a few must be at their chiro-
practors this morning getting their
backs repaired! There was a subtle
admission that the current low
water conditions would be ideal to
address the concerns but it was
obvious they were at a loss as to
what to do - citing equipment
access issues and no viable plan for
disposal of any material removed
from the lake bottom. Focus quickly
shifted back to the few north end
habitat initiates that they do have
plans for. The problems in the south
end are off the radar screen. I was
left with the impression that the
only reason to meet in Clewiston
was to shorten the drive to the meet-
ing for their local representatives,
since it was as if the south end of the
lake and its problems did not exist.
It seems to me that muck
removal and selected dredging
would go a long way toward
increasing the carrying capacity of
water in the lake, vastly improve
the navigational and access issues
in the lake, and improve the aquat-
ic habitat. Recreational value and
the associated economic boost to
our community from visitors could
still be salvaged.
With a hundred plus miles of
dike, why removed lake bottom
material could not be thinly spread
along the outside of the dike seems
to be a begging question. There are
solutions, but then again solutions
are only found when they are
sought. It appears that the towel
has been thrown in on any south
side restoration. We may plant
some trees on barrier islands and
reintroduce apple snails for the
birds but boaters and fishermen
issues are not being seriously
addressed.
An overnight fix to the lake's
problems shouldn't be expected
but to get any traction and momen-
tum on the recreational use issues is
going to require a change in current
mindset and a fair dose of public
support to even get it on the agenda.

CREW gathers volunteers to provide hope


CREW is on the move; they con-
tinue to reach out to those victims
of Hurricane Wilma still trying to
recover. They are also trying to
reach victims of other natural disas-
ters as well, although funding is
very limited in those areas. They
had a total of 62 volunteers in Janu-
ary working a total of 1,786 hours.
This included two groups on Jan. 6.
One was from Grace Ministries in
Cape Coral 4 volunteers worked on
reframing a bay window and
installing a ceiling in the kitchen.
The other group was from Com-
munity Presbyterian Church of
Clewiston, 8 volunteers worked on
painting a home.
A group of eight from Gaithers-
burg, Md. worked on two homes.
They hung and finished drywall
and were there for the week of Jan.
07 thru Jan. 13. Another group of
nine from Tangier Island, Va., came
in and worked on drywall. They
were joined by two ladies were
from Orlando. The ladies stayed
two weeks and managed to get the
biggest part of the finishing done. A
local volunteer from the First Bap-
tist Church worked on Jan. 16,
helping in the office creating some
files. The week of Jan. 22 to Jan. 27,
saw a group of 22 from Colonial
Heights, Va. They were split into
three groups and managed to
replace two roofs, tearing out dry-
wall and replacing and finishing the
drywall. An individual from Presby-
terian Disaster Relief in Georgia
joined this group. This group com-
pleted all three projects.
The last week of the month a
couple from Kentucky worked on
finishing more drywall and paint-
ing. The couple will be here for a
total of two weeks. An individual
volunteer from Michigan returned
from his Habitat build on Jan. 19.
He has continued to work replac-
ing doors and making needed
repairs. While these groups were
here, some local volunteers helped
out by preparing a meal a week for


the groups. These were five volun-
teers from the Community Presby-
terian Church.
As of Jan. 31, the current case-
load to include open, closed,
assigned, unassigned, and Palm
Beach referrals is 641 families.
Within Hendry County, there are a
total of 571 cases; 252 of these
cases are open; 323 of these cases
have been closed with the client
meeting all their needs, the client
being referred to networking agen-
cies, or CREW meeting all the
client's needs. Within the month of
January there have been four new
families that have signed up with
CREW within Hendry County, 11
cases have been closed, and 93
cases have been served. Within
Glades County in January, there are
a total 77 cases; 32 of these cases
are open; 49 of these cases have
been closed with the client meeting
their needs, the client being
referred to networking agencies, or
CREW meeting all the client's
needs. Within the month of Janu-
ary there have been no new clients,
15 have been closed, and CREW
has served 37 clients.
This department currently has
3.5 case managers that are assess-
ing homes and reviewing case
information. Case. managers have
reassessed all recovery plans for all
open cases and have focused atten-
tions on re-contacting clients for
the Mitigation Program.
Disaster Response Database
(DRD) is up and running in full
force. "ALL CLIENT" has been re-
inputted into the system and the
system has provided a great
improvement to the daily life of the
case management department.
CREW has continued relief
efforts by continuing to provide
clients with an opportunity to come
to one of the branch locations.
They are set up in the Moore Haven
Office every Tuesday from the
hours of 9 a.m. until noon and at
the Labelle and Harlem office,


every third Tuesday of the month.
During these times volunteers
have been able to contact clients
and inform them if paperwork is
pending or question if they are still
in need of assistance. They have
received additional computer
equipment and ability to work in
the office continues to make the
work a lot easier.
In January, CREW's Construc-
tion Coordinator completed a total
of 19 assessments in Hendry Coun-
ty, supervised five volunteer groups
race Ministries (Cape Coral), Com-
munity Presbyterian Church of
Clewiston, Good Shepherd Luther-
an (Gaithersburg, Md.), Tanjier
United Methodist (Tanjier Island,
Va.) and IBC (Colonial Heights, Va.)
and five individual volunteers. The
volunteer groups hung and fin-
ished 13 rooms of drywall,
replaced two roofs, and installed a
bay window and a ceiling. All
clients are of Hendry County and
victims of Hurricane Wilma.
CREW also picked up donated
furniture from Mrs. Laura Smith to
include: a Leather reclining sofa, a
leather recliner, swiveling TV stand,
19 inch TV, entertainment center,
Dinette table and four chairs, night
stand and play station with 10
games. Mr. Sherman Buford also


donated a 25 inch TV.
First United Methodist Church
(Moore Haven) donated a
Whirlpool Dish washer, an oven,
and a sofa. These were all donated
to and delivered to local families in
needs, most of whom are current
clients. The total amount of in-kind
donations for the month of January
is $1,125.
CREW received FEMA close out
grant from Volunteer Florida Foun-
dation to help with case manage-
ment of FEMA cases, and funding
from UMCOR to continue their
case managers and construction
coordinator for another year.
CREWhas updated their Web
site and blog site, and received
501 (c) (3) status. They were on the
local Spanish and English Radio
station and have had one article in
the paper along with the continued
spots asking for volunteers and
donations weekly in the paper.
February will see the beginning
of weekly Unmet Needs Committee'
Meetings (for those in FEMA trailers
still from Wilma) with local, county
governments and social service:
agencies in Hendry county and bi-
weekly in Glades for those residents
in FEMA trailers. CREW has volun-,
teered to host those meetings.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutional are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dog'," than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing k'edback(" news .ap corn or calling \'your editor.

February brings local festivals
-wuI - -


INI/Nena Bolan
Willow Jack came all the way from Fort Hall, Idaho to per-
form and celebrate with the Seminole Tribe of Florida dur-
ing the Brighton Rodeo and Festival. Willow Jack used to
perform with her husband before he and their daughter lost
their lives in a car wreck. She survived to continue their
shared love of dancing.

k1_ ~ 7


These young ladies are a choir group from New Bethel Bap-
tist Church in LaBelle. They sang on Sunday at the Swamp
Cabbage Festival. Their performance was enjoyed by all
age groups.


',L ~ I n~sk l*~ 'ti P1 .11. jOt!


Many long hours of work go into making Seminole patch-
work clothing. These adults are competing for one of sev-
eral categories in the clothing contest at the Brighton
Rodeo and Festival in mid February on the Brighton Reser-
vation in Glades County.


Martina Osawamick of the Anishnaabe tribe displays an
inner birch bark basket made by her family members. She
was an arts and crafts vendor at the Brighton Rodeo and
Festival in Glades County on February 16 - 18. Martina has
a restaurant and craft store in Wikwemikong, Ontario.

Leadership program continues success


By Janice Groves
HENDRY/GLADES COUNTY
- Another successful session
has been put to rest as the Lead-
ership Hendy and Glades Coun-
ties' "Pioneer" Class' inaugural
season met its halfway mark
Wednesday, Feb. 21.
The twenty participants
began their Health and Educa-
tion Day at the Port LaBelle Inn
for breakfast, sponsored by Sea-
coast National Bank and Lang-
ford Ford. The class members
then were introduced to a panel
of educators in both Hendry and
Glades counties. Barbara Saun-


ders, Executive Director of South-
west Florida, Early Learning
Coalition; Lucinda Kelley, Dean
of Education at the LaBelle Cam-
pus of Edison College; Tom Con-
nor, Superintendent of Hendry
County Schools,; Scott Bass,
Glades County Schools; and Nor-
man "Sonny" Hughes, Executive
Director of the Education Center
of Southwest Florida provided an
informative and in-depth picture
of opportunities and challenges
facing the Hendry and Glades
counties education systems.
A tour of the Edison campus
in LaBelle, hosted by Lucinda
Kelley and the LaBelle High
School campus, hosted by Jen-


nifer Milligan and Aaron Dyes,
both students at LaBelle High
School, and Daniel Gilbertson,
LaBelle High School Principal
filled the rest of the morning. A
cafeteria lunch at the high school
was enjoyed by the class before
they headed to Moore Haven to
visit the Glades County School
Board. Mr. Scott Bass gave a tour
of the executive offices and
School Board Member, Janet
Story, provided the joys, rewards
and challenges of being a school
board member.
Being Health and Education
Day, the group switched to the
health portion of the day for the
afternoon. A short tour and infor-


mation presentation of the
Glades County Health Depart-
ment preceded a trip to the
Hendry County Regional Medical
Center where a tour of the 56
year old facility was hosted by
Sue Sealey.
The group wrapped up the
day by listening to a panel of rep-
resentatives from the Hendry
County Health Department
including: Pat Dobbins Executive
Nursing Director; Lynn Thomas,

GLADES COUNTY - On Tues-
day, Feb. 20, a Glades County
Sheriff's Deputy was conducting
routine security checks within the
Port LaBelle area. During the
security checks, the deputy
noticed a strong odor of marijua-
na from within a specific resi-
dence.
The deputy contacted the
Criminal Investigation Division,
and relayed his findings. 'The
Criminal Investigations Division
began their investigation which
-led to obtaining a search warrant
for the residence located on
Warm Court. The search warrant
led investigators to find 9 grown
marijuana plants and approxi-
mately 50 pounds of processed
marijuana.
Also inside the residence,
investigators arrested two sus-


pects, Mercedes Alpiza Cabrera,
38 and Gilberto Hernandez
Lopez, 36. Both were taken into
custody and charged with cultiva-
tion of marijuana and trafficking
of marijuana.
While detectives were at work
on the first suspected "grow
house," they located a second
possible suspect residence.
With a search warrant, detec-
tives searched the second home
in the same area on Saturn Circle
and found 65 marijuana plants
growing inside the home. Detec-
tives arrested Osualdo Jorge, 45
and he also was taken into cus-
tody and charged with cultivation
of marijuana and possession of
marijuana.
All three suspects were trans-
ported to the Glades County Jail.

Revisions in federal


radio regulations


affect amateurs


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
W3ALE, PIO-BLARC
CLEWISTON - Effective Feb.
23, changes were made in the
Federal Communications Com-
mission regulations that affected
radio amateurs. For the first time
since the inception of radio licens-
ing, Morse code requirements
have been dropped. This means
that persons seeking to be
licensed as radio amateurs will no
longer have to take tests to
demonstrate their ability to oper-
ate in code. For some years now,
there has been a discontinuation
of code use by the military and
the commercial radio communi-
ty. Today, a more innovative
means of using "code" has come
into place by the coupling of digi-
tal technology and radio broad-
casting and the former means of
communication by Morse code is
not as nearly widespread as it
once was.
The Federal radio spectrum
still maintains frequencies
restricted for the use of code
transmissions, although a second
change also was instituted on the
23rd of February, expanding the
portions of the amateur radio
spectrum that permits use of
voice transmissions.
In the past, some persons


interested in amateur radio as a
hobby and as a means of serving
their communities in times of dis-
asters felt restricted by code
requirements; feeling that they
could not sufficiently master this
language to pass the required
tests. With the elimination of the
code requirement, it is now possi-
ble to obtain any of the various
classes of amateur licenses by
passing the written question-and-
answer tests that are provided.
The Clewiston area, as well as the
other areas around Lake Okee-
chobee, has sufficient numbers of
volunteer examiners to provide
for licensure tests to those who
are interested in becoming radio
amateurs, as well as providing
resources or referrals to classes,
materials and means of self-study
to prepare for the exams,
Interested persons can contact
the Big Lake Amateur Radio Club
for more information, assistance
or referral to sources to help get
underway in a rewarding and
useful pastime.
For more information, contact
the club, which meets the last
Monday of each month at Saint
Martin's Church, Clewiston, at
7:30 p.m. More information can
be obtained by calling (863) 983-
7960 in Clewiston.

To meet a growing demand for electricity and provide a diverse fuel mix
ensuring a reliable supply of electricity, Florida Power & Light is proposing
to build an advanced technology coal plant. The proposed plant will also
meet a demand for strict environmental and public health protection.

Florida Power & Lighlt studied coal-fired power plants around the world
and selected the best-proven technology for the proposed FPL Glades Power
Park. This plant design will be the
most advanced coal generation tech-
nology ever developed in the United
States and is raising the bar for the
industry. This new generation of coal-
fired power plants offers a modern,
environmentally safe and efficient
approach to producing electricity.

The extraordinary controls on.mercury
emissions planned for the FPL Glades
Power Park are an example of the care
and commitment to protecting public
health and the environment.

Strict mercury emission limits for power plants were adopted in the
Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Air Mercury Rule of 2005.
The FPL Glades Power Park will not only meet the EPA's new, strict limit
but will be 50 percent below that limit for mercury emissions.

Mercury does not pose a health risk in the air we breathe; rather, it becomes
a concern when it builds up in the food chain. When mercury from the air
gets into water bodies, it can be converted to a form called methylmercury
and accumulate in fish. Because of its very low emissions, the FPL Glades
Power Park will not contribute to health concerns from
methylmercury in the region. Area residents can continue to
enjoy fish caught locally in the same quantities they do now.


Advanced Mercury Controls Planned for the

FPL Glades Power Park

To achieve this level of protection, the most modern, proven pollution
control technologies will be brought to Glades County with the construc-
tion of the FPL Glades Power Park.

Overall, emissions of mercury in the United States from man-made sources
already have fallen by more than 45 percent since passage of the earlier
Clean Air Act amendments in 1990. With the stricter Mercury Rule of
2005, this trend of Mercury reductions is expected to continue. FPL Glades
Power Park's modern technology helps to continue that trend.

Mercury is a naturally occurring element in rocks and soil and also can
be found in fuels such as coal and oil. The amount of mercury in coal is
typically similar to the amount that is already found in Florida soils. FPL
will use an extensive array of proven' emissions-control equipment that
enhances the removal of mercury at each step of the process so the amount
of mercury in the local environment from the power plant will be indistin-
guishable from what already exists naturally and from other sources.

As part of FPL's continuing focus on public health and environmental
protection, we will monitor air emissions from the FPL Glades Power Park
24 hours a day to ensure the protection of both the environment and the
health of people and wildlife in the region.

FPL is committed to a long-term partnership with the communities where
our facilities are located. The Glades region will be no exception. We want
community involvement throughout the planning stages of this project. If
you have additional questions about the pollution-control technologies,
please call us at (888) 256-2206.

Bronson urges homeowners to prevent termite infestation


TALLAHASSEE - Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bronson
is warning Florida homeowners
that termite swarming season has
begun and they need to protect
their homes from an infestation.
Termites cause millions of dollars,
in damage to houses in Florida
everyvear.
Swarming season occurs when
termites begin to "swarm" or leave
their colonies to search for new
nesting sites. Many homeowners
discover thai they have a termite
problem when they find termite
swarmers (winged, black insects
about 1/4-inch long) in their homes.
Although termites can be found
throughout Florida, at least half of
the homes in this state have no ter-
mite protection. The Department
regulates and licenses pest control
companies and conducts regular
inspections to ensure the business-

Consumers can contact the
Department's Division of Agricul-
tural Envirtnmental Services to
find out whether a pest control
company is properly licensed and
to find out how many consumer
complaints have been filed against,
a particular business.:
"Most pest control operations in
Florida-have the proper training
and have good business practices,"
Mr. Bronson said. "But there are
unlicensed companies out there,
and when you are dealing with
something as. serious as termite
infestations you want to be sure the
business is following the law, and
that employees are properly

safe pest control."

the gun was not found.
The next day, officers received
information from a source that a
resident of the mobile home park
had information about the gun's
whereabouts.
After taking several leads and
speaking to a few witnesses, Offi-
cer Clay came in contact with the
person who reportedly bought the
firearm from her own nephew, a
minor, for $400.
After speaking to the aunt, Offi-


Mr. Mullins also stressed to the
audience the importance of getting
input and suggestions from the
general community regarding the
CRA plan. Several planned public
hearings in the future will give resi-
dents a chance to offer ideas that
may be included in the plan.
"We are seeking input to facili-
tate a vision and establish strategies
for the visions implementation" Mr.
Mullins said, noting that the CRA
plan is now in its beginning stages.
The second phase of the plan
will include hiring consultants or
a consulting firm to identify the


and attack structures from the
ground up, and drywood termites,
which can live in wood in a building
and can go undetected until they
cause extensive, visible damage.
Licensed pest management profes-
sionals have the expertise to inspect
buildings and treat them to prevent
an infestation or provide treatment
when the insects are found.
Steps that consumers can take
to protect their homes from this
destructive pest are: ,
* Remove wood piles and other
cellulose sources from areas under
and nex'to their homes.
* Have an annual inspection of
their homes by a licensed profes-
sional pest control company.
e Direct water sources, such as
air conditioner drip lines and roof
downspouts, away from the struc-
ture's foundation.
* When purchasing homes,
carefully check the termite protec-

* Obtain a termite protection
contract and renew it annually.
Mr. Bronson said consumers
also need to be sure to read a ter-
mite protection contract before
signing it. Some contracts only
require that the company retreat a
home if termites are found. Bron-
son says it's better to have a "retreat
and. repair" contract, which
requires the pest control business,
to repair any damage caused by ter-
mites after a home has been
inspected and treated.
All Floridians are urged to, take

pay for the services of the pro-
posed program, Mr. Jameson -
who potentially stands to lose
some of his bail bondsman busi-
ness to inmates opting for the
judge's proposal - doesn't see
that happening.
"Most of the time, the defen-
dant can't even afford the bond,"
Mr. Jameson said. "What makes
the judge think they can afford
this service?"
Due to the fact that the inmates
have to wait to learn whether the
judge will let them take advantage
of the program, most inmates will
most likely still post bond before


he ever sees them, the judge said.
Instead, the program may end up
helping people who don't have
the means to post bond "but
don't need to be sitting in jail, tak-
ing the space of a more danger-
ous individual," the judge said.
Judge Sloan said he took two
days working closely with staff to
pore over detailed information
regarding the number of inmates
in jail for first-, second- and third-
degree felonies and misde-
meanors, in an effort to find a
long-term solution to the issue.
Mr. Jameson finds fault in that.
"All the time he spent working
on this program, he could have
been spending it adjudicating
court cases and saving the county
money," Mr. Jameson told com-
missioners.


County Attorney Mark Lapp,
currently serving as interim coun-
ty administrator, is expected to
meet with Judge Sloan to discuss
the issue. The proposal is expect-
ed to be brought back to county
commissioners for final consider-
ation at a future meeting.
In any event, the judge said he
simply wanted to help.
"This is something I did to help
the county and Sheriff Depart-
ment to solve the problem,"
Judge Sloan said. "This will not
affect my job whether the board
decides to adopt the program or
not. I simply wanted to help since
I too live here in Hendry County."

Preparation and prevention; two parts of getting ready


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We are into the season of Lent
in the calendars used by many
churches.
This is a time of getting ready for
Easter, really and it has a long and
traditional history. When we
expect to have special visitors, we
clean house, buy special things to
eat, tell friends about who is com-
ing over and make a hospitable
place for our planned guests.
That's what Lent is about too; get-
ting ready for a renewed visit by a
Resurrected Lord at Easter.
Zechariah speaks of his son John,
whose ministry was to "go on
before the Lord to prepare the way
for Him (Luke 1:76)." The Old Tes-
tament tells us about preparing for
the coming of the Lord and the
New Testament tells us to prepare
for His coming again. I reflected on
times I have gotten ready for some-


thing; about ministries and how
my past experiences helped me
with them, about friendships I
share and looking forward to time I
spend with people who are special
to me, about ......
looking ahead
at, the changes
that I can fore- .
see and at what -' + -
I am doing to
make transi-
tions to a new . ..
direction in my
life. There is
also another Samuel S.
part of pre- Thomas
paredness thatI Thomas
consider: prevention. Sometime
ago, when I toured the Mercedes-
Benz plant and museum in
Stuttgart, Germany, we were intro-
duced to all of the engineering and
technological advances that were
made. Then the engineers said that
they were not satisfied with build-
ing what they thought was the


best; they wanted to do something
more and devoted their research to
safety. They moved from designing
cars only to transport, to designing
cars that would prevent injury or
death in case of an accident. The
cars were designed to prepare for
something that might never come,
but would prevent bad things from
happening if it did. Today, our cars
are "prepared" for the future with
air bags and restraints; to "prevent"
what might happen even if we
don't think much about them each
time we get in. Accident prevention
is also preparation.
We are likewise encouraged to
do "preventive maintenance;"
service today to keep things going
in the future. Likewise, medicine
works to heal people and discover
cures for what ails us; but there is
also that growing concern for pre-
ventive medicine. That's equally
important; the other side of the
coin in keeping us from needing
healing in the first place. We pre-


pare for the future by preventing
global warming today with all of its
consequences. Spiritually, our
habits of worship, our moments of
devotion, or prayers that we say
regularly, our doing good- are pre-
ventive too. They give us the
inward direction that carries us
when crises occur or when tragedy
strikes. My habits of prayer go
before me when I am called upon,
sometimes very suddenly, to offer a
blessing or to pray with someone
who is suffering or has had a seri-
ous setback. I was reading an old
English prayer the other day and
the word "prevent" was used. In
the older version, it made more
sense if it was translated as "going
before." In fact, "prevent" is related
to the root meanings of "pre"
meaning something before, and
"venir" in Latin, French or Spanish
which means "to come." "Pre-
vent" literally meant what to do
before coming into something.
Today, prevention is what we do


before we get into a predicament
or situation. Spiritually, it is getting
ready for what is to come. In this
time of getting ready for Easter,
April 8th-a little more than a month
away, it would be a good time to
think about the spiritual "preven-
tive maintenance" we could do - in
the old sense of the word. What we


do today matters tomorrow, and
what foundations we have laid
now will support our life to come.
Lent is one of those times tradition-
ally set aside by many faithful to
remind us of or spiritual "preven-
tive maintenance" and to get ready
for the life to come at Easter and
finally at the close of this age.


Tubas on picnic tables and other learned truths


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There are certain truths that
we can relate to. A friend shared
with me that when using a public
campground, a tuba placed on
your picnic table will keep the
campsites on either side vacant,
and that the guitar of the noisy
teenager at the next campsite
makes excellent kindling. I can
only imagine how he ascertained
that knowledge!
We find spoken and written
truths and messages all around
us. Sometimes they make us
smile; sometimes they inspire us.
Sometimes they just invite us to
pause and think.
Take some of the messages we


find on church signs for instance.
Here are some favorites that I dug
up from my files.
(1) "Those who throw dirt lose
ground." (2) "It wasn't the apple
on the tree, it
was the pair
beneath." (3)
"Satan sub-
tracts and
divides. God
adds and mul-
tiplies." (4)
"Easter - More
than - some-
thing to dye John
for." (5) Hicks
"When down
in the mouth, remember Jonah.
He came out all right." (6) "Don't
let your worries get the best of
you; remember, Moses started


out as a basket case." (7) "Some
minds are like concrete thorough-
ly mixed up and permanently
set." (8) "We were called to be
witnesses, not lawyers or judges."
(9) "God doesn't call the quali-
fied, He qualifies the called." (10)
"The Will of God never takes you
to where the Grace of God will
not protect you." (11) "We don't
change the message, the message
changes us."
These messages touch our
hearts with a smile and elements
of great truths that we can relate
to and share. Recently, I ran
across another fascinating list that
was titled: "Great Truths About
Life That Little Children Have
Learned." Let me share a few of
these "great truths" with you.
(1) "No matter how hard you

try you cannot baptize a cat." (2)
"When your mom is mad at your
dad, don't let her brush your
hair." (3) "Never ask your three-
year-old brother to hold a toma-
to - or an egg." (4) "You can't
trust dogs to watch your food for
you.". (5) "Don't sneeze when
somebody is cutting your hair."
(6) "School lunches stick to the
wall." (7) "You can't hide a piece
of broccoli in a glass of milk."
(8) "Never wear polka-dot
underwear under white shorts...
no matter how cute the under-
wear is."
Now, it is most likely that the
children learned these "great
truths" and came to these bold
new insights after some dramat-

BELLE GLADE - The Glady L.
Tucker Women's Missionary Soci-
ety along with the Eleventh Episco-
pal Missionary Society, reached out
to children whose fathers are incar-
cerated. The Mt. Zion WMS, under
the leadership of Pastor Hymes and
local president Maude L. Vereen,
accepted the challenge.
The group was initially sent
information on five families with 11
children, however, President
Vereen was contacted by four other
families with 18 more children.
President Vereen contacted
each caretaker and explained the
purpose for the call, to find out
each child's needs. Each one was
invited to share worship service
with the church. The members
decided to have a feast at the I,S,
and Etha Jones Multipurpose build-
ing immediately after the service.


It is possible to be right with God


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Yes, there are great problems. in
our world, and many people are
hurting, but in a troubled world
amid church problems it is still
possible for a Christian to be right
with God and have that peace that
passes all understanding.
Yes, there is much evil in the
world, and many are succumb-
ing to its many temptations, but


in a.corrupt and sinful world it is
still possible (with God's help)
for a Christian to be holy and to
keep himself/herself unspotted
from the world.
In a world that is full of drugs,
alcoholism and immoral sex, it is
still possible for a Christian to con-
trol his/her bodily appetites.
In a world of sex-before-mar-
riage, living together without being
married, abortions to get rid of
unwanted and unborn children,


and many divorces, it is still possi-
ble for a young couple to have an
honorable courtship, to marry for
life, to have a good home and to
rear good children.
In a world full of excitement
and 24-hour entertainment it is still
possible to work with people and
lead some to Christ.
In a situation where some
people backslide and others are
inconsistent in their Christian
profession, it is still possible to be


a faithful Christian who will be
faithful to death.
In a world full of religious divi-
sion, denominationalism, confu-
sion and sectarianism, it is still
possible to be just simply a Chris-
tian and belong to Christ's body
"The Church".
Now aren't you glad IT IS POS-
SIBLE? And since it is possible,
don't you want to be one of those
who can achieve that which is pos-
sible with the Lord's help?


that experience that this is just in the Scriptures. From Genesis available to us today through the
