Immokalee Indian Day

By Paula Cassels IMMOKALEE -- On Sept. 26, canoe races kicked off the start of the Immokalee Indian Day Celebration. At 3:30 p.m., as the kids returned from school, the fun began as the community splashed right in to the canoe races. After the races were finished, the community celebration continued at the softball field with the greased pig contest. Competitors had to tie a string around any part of the greased pig's body to win. The most popular activity, the Archery event, drew a crowd that was very knowledgeable and competitive. The contest lasted a long time and most of the contestants scored very high. Meanwhile, the turtle races were taking place. Most of the kids enjoyed this competition, many brought their own turtles and their Paula Cassels neighbors' turtles, to the Many brought their own turtles to the race. race. See IMMOKALEE, page 3

Learning, Cooking, Enjoying: Culture Day

By Paula Cassels BRIGHTON -- On Sept.20, community members were hard at work, cooking and cleaning the catch of the day for the Brighton Culture Day. Behind the rodeo arena, Sheila Jones and Delaney Osceola were learning how to clean curlew. Over an open fire, Jenny Snow was cooking turtles, garfish and biscuits. While cooking, Jenny said that Seminoles eat all kinds of turtles. She tapped them on the side and back to check if they were done. When they crumbled or the back of the turtle shell cracked open, the turtle was ready to eat. See CULTURE DAY, page 3

The 5-K event started at 6:00 a.m. in the field office parking lot. The competitors walked down to the driving range and back, leisure walkers were welcome. Other Tribal members participated in the gigging contest. The rules for the gigging contest were to bank fish only, and fishing was limited to the reservation in limited areas. The competition was graded on the biggest and longest Gar

Chamber Of Commerce Honors Mitchell Cypress

CLEWISTON -- On Sept. 17, the 54th Annual Clewiston Chamber of Commerce Dinner held a Social Time Dinner. Delivering the Keynote Address was Mitchell Cypress, President/Acting Chairman for the Seminole Tribe of Florida. Mitchell was introduced by Diane Buster and Sally Tommie, who presented him as a leader who has shown great perseverance and determination. During his address, Mitchell spoke of the ingredients needed to be a leader of the 2,800 plus tribe that has gaming and tobacco revenues as its income generators. Mitchell also clarified some misconceptions about Seminoles. One in particular was the myth that Seminoles do not pay taxes. Cypress explained to all in attendance that each Seminole pays every sort of tax, except property taxes because the Tribe's reservations are on trust land. He also noted the Tribe's efforts to establish positive ties and communication with the towns that surround its five reservations. Mitchell's address earned a round of applause from all of the attendees, who represent many of the businesses in the community. After Cypress's speech, President Nan Schmiedeberg presented him with a small sword as a token of the Chamber of Commerce's appreciation. Congratulations to Mitchell on his recognition by the Clewiston Chamber of Commerce for his leadership role in the Seminole Tribe.

In Loving Memory Of Track Flames Sue

Seminole Tribune: My name is Ayze Jo Henry. I am fifteen years old and already have experienced alot of pain and triumph. This year in June, my number one horse was struck by lightning. Her name was Track Flames Sue. She was only seven years old and just entering her prime. The Florida State NBHA finals was the same weekend she died. I didn't feel like going because a part of me died with her. I don't think I've ever been so attached to anything before, not even my mom and dad. My dad talked me into going because I have never been so discouraged in my life. If it wasn't for my family, I would have missed out on something I was never able to do. My mom's horse, Boo The Band, won the Youth 4-D. I still think Sue had a part in it. When other girls challenged the 1-D time, Sue probably kicked down the barrel they happened to be turning. Therefore, no one beat the 1-D time. I had a long wait before the Youth competition was over. When I heard my name on the loudspeaker as Youth 4-D State Champion, the first thing I said was, "thank you Sue." I still miss her, she was my baby. The only "significant other" as you would say. I have her three year old, full blooded sister, Rain. Rain is a very good pupil when I am riding and teaching her. Next year, she'll be able to rope off of, and be an outstanding barrel horse.

Recently, Nauthkee and I traveled to Tulsa, Oklahoma to the Drysdales Supershow. Again, the Youth race was very close. The 1-D time was 15.579 and my time was 17.570. 1 was nine thousandths of a second too fast. The horse who ran that time was Boo. My other horse, Speedy, the replacement for Sue, won fourth in the 4-D. Speedy and I have to do alot of bonding. To me she is a rude, obnoxious horse, to the other horses, she is the Boss Mare. Nauthkee rode Bridgette, the

horse that started it all. She was my second horse. People call her "Bambi" because she looks like a deer when she runs. Her tail goes up and she picks her feet up high. Nauthkee had a time of 20.1, not good enough to place, but good enough for not riding for two or three months! Nauthkee, you make me proud!! I would like to thank David Cypress and Paul Bowers for making the trip to Tulsa possible. Ayze Jo Henry



Letters & E-mail

Editor, I enjoyed your website very much. I am organizing our thanksgiving celebrations at our preschool this year and we would very much like to give our children a broader view of the native people of the south. I am from Scotland and I find it disturbing that the only time the native culture in the USA is celebrated is at thanksgiving and even then the people are portrayed or 'lumped together' as one people. I would be very interested in any easy educational books or even any drawings or photos of your people past and present which would be suitable for our little children who are aged 2 -5. I am hoping to have each class be a different tribe and would also like to use any story books available throughout our school year. Hope you can help, Thank you, Moira Hutt [email protected] Editor, I live close to you & saw fireworks going off Friday 9/27/02. I was curious, was it a tribe holiday or celebration?

Next to Jenny Snow was Martha Jones, who had her own table under a chickee where she was teaching the children how to open and clean garfish. Garfish are hard to cut open, because they have alligator-like skin that is rough, wet and slippery.

Bad Boys

Continued from page 1 duced by Jerry Bruckheimer. On Tuesday, Sept. 10, 2002. I spent most of this day shooting different angles of the scene from Monday. However, I did get to meet and speak with Will Smith briefly through his wardrobe person, Robert Matta, who just happens to be a great friend of Marilyn McEuen. I presented Will with two Seminole Jackets for he and his wife, Jada Pinkett-Smith. I was also lucky enough to meet and speak with Gabrielle Union. On Thursday, Sept. 12, 2002 I spent this last day re-shooting scenes that were rained out on Tuesday. Jada PinkettSmith visited the set and I had a chance to meet and speak with her briefly. Unfortunately, I did not have my camera so, no photos with Jada. Although the 12th was the last day of filming for the scene our group would be in, the movie does not wrap until December. So, hopefully, I will be called back for other scenes. It was quite interesting to see what all is involved in filming a movie. The three days of shooting we did only accounts for approximately 8 to 9 minutes of the entire movie. Isn't that amazing?!! On Thursday, Sept. 26,2002... This was only the second day of filming for Fast and Furious II, directed by John Singleton and starring Paul Walker and Tyrese (Vin Diesel will not be appearing in the sequel). Today, we shot a scene outside a restaurant in Miami, involving Paul and Tyrese. My Jeep was also used in the scene! I was called for just this one day, but the movie will be shooting for the

Well, I just wanted to share my experience with you, and thank Marilyn McEuen for her continued help and support. It is such a wonderful feeling to have someone believe in your talent and ability and who will go out of their way to do anything to help you achieve your dreams.


Continued from page 1 At dusk, the kids enjoyed an egg toss competition. The raw eggs were amazing. No matter how far the egg was thrown, when it hit the ground, it didn't break. Until they tested it on someone's body. After the egg-toss, the axe-throwing event was held for the adults and seniors only. While this skillful event was being held, the egg and spoon race was held for the kids. As dark came upon the softball field and the mosquitoes came out to eat, everybody was covered in excitement and sweat as they started the sack races. The kids' race had to be held twice because the kids were hopping around so fast this way and that, that the judges couldn't tell who had won.

After the kids were finished it was time for the evening's funniest event, the adult sack race. The scene was a madhouse with one person carrying another while hopping with the sagging sack, another hopping on one foot and people were falling on top of each other. It was a great celebration, the Immokalee Indian Day was sponsored by the Immokalee Recreation Department.

Brighton Diabetic Polynesian Extravaganza

By Paula Cassels BRIGHTON­On Oct. 3, the Brighton seniors and community members of all ages enjoyed a Hawaiian Luau buffet dinner and Polynesian Show.

Healthy Grocery Shopping

By Kenny Bayon, C.PT It's the end of another bustling day. You're tired, sweaty, smelly and hungry. About the only thing more appealing than a hot shower is a hearty meal. Problem: The refrigerator's as bare as the shelves in an Afghanistan supermarket, and the pantry's serving as storage space for your old TV. Don't call Domino's just yet. We've already written about how to lean out, and now it's time to learn about healthy grocery shopping. Join us for a supermarket tour with Barbara S. Correll, a registered dietitian for 30 years and owner of Dietetic Consulting Services in the Florida area. Among other things, you'll learn how to reduce fat, sugar, sodium and cholesterol in your diet; find great sources of protein and antioxidants; and better understand nutritional labels. The dividends: You'll feel great, improve your physique, and increase your life expectancy. Any complaints? BASIC GUIDELINES *Above all else, Learn To Read And Understand Food Labels. "They have to read the labels or they just won't succeed," Correll attests. While walking through a Publix in Hollywood, FL, we discovered many products, especially those with reduced fat, are loaded with enough sugar, salt and preservatives to fill a sand trap: there can be a huge gap in calories between similarlooking products (from 60 to 140 calories, for example, for a ½ cup of red pasta sauce); some are vague about their ingredients; and others don't even have labels - which means zero chance of us buying it. *Avoid foods with high contents of fat, which can cause heart disease and a plague of health problems (keep total fat to less than 20 percent of calories, with less than 10 percent from saturated); salt/sodium, which can cause high blood pressure (3,000-4,000 milligrams daily); cholesterol, which clogs arteries (200-300 milligrams daily); caffeine, which can raise blood pressure and cause dehydration; sugar, which often adds unneeded calories; and nitrates, which are heavily used in processed and smoked meats and can cause cancer. *Among fats, unsaturated are the lesser evil. The best fats are monounsaturated (canola and olive oils, nuts and avocado), which can lower harmful cholesterol (LDL) levels; followed by polyunsaturated (corn, soybean and sunflower oils; fish fat). Saturated fats (found in meats; dairy products; hardened butter and margarine; and coconut, palm and palm kernel oils) raise LDL levels. In recipes, try using fat substitutes such as apple sauce, bananas, pureed prunes, fat-free yogurt and egg whites. *Determine fat percentage based on calories, not weight. One gram of fat has nine calories (compared to four calories for a gram of protein or carbohydrate). So a 200-calorie nutritional bar with 4 fat grams (4 X 9 = 36 calories) is 18 percent fat. *Grab foods with high fiber content, such as whole grains, fruits, beans and other veggies. Fiber has many benefits: It keeps the stomach full so you'll tend to eat less; helps regulate blood sugar levels for maintained energy; fights off bad cholesterol; and aids in waste elimination. Correll recommends eating 25-35 grams daily. *Choose a wide variety of foods, especially from the produce section. Many fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, which help fight off body-damaging and diseasecausing free radicals. As a general rule of fruits and veggies, Correll says, "The more colorful, the more nutrition value you'll get." Also, freshly frozen produce can be just as healthy as that picked off the pile. *Despite the recent trend toward low-carbohydrate diets, Correll advocates balanced nutrition plans. "Moderation in everything is my golden rule," she declares. To avoid overeating, she suggests using plastic bags to separate portions. Correll uses Exchange Lists, available from the American Diabetes Association and The American Dietetic Association, to help establish serving-size guidelines. *Don't neglect dairy products. They are a great source of calcium, which helps keep bones dense and strong. And it's not just women who need to worry about osteoporosis. "I'm finding more and more men with calcium problems," Correll says. *Look for cookbooks "that match what kind of plan they're on and what they want to get out of their foods," advises Correll. *Never shop for groceries on an empty stomach, which can lead to impulsive buying of junk food. *For eating on the greens, Correll recommends prepackaged foods such as granola, nutritional (Balance, Power) or protein bars. Drink water, and plenty of it -- perhaps a sports drink if walking the course -- but definitely no beverages with alcohol or caffeine. GRAB A SHOPPING CART (Note: This isn't a conclusive grocery list. We just offer tips; you make the choices. Also, all food listed are not necessarily the equivalent of those in similar categories under different sections. For instance, a "bad" cereal like granola can be more nutritious than a "better" snack like low-fat cookies.) DELI Bad: Processed meats such as salami, liverwurst, bologna; mayonnaiseor oil-based salads; heavy cheeses such as American, cheddar and Swiss. Better: Lighter lunch meats such as turkey or chicken breast, and lean roast beef and ham; reduced-fat cheeses (thinly sliced). Best: Grilled chicken breast (skin and fat pulled); freshly-carved turkey. BAKERY Bad: Pies, cakes, cookies, doughnuts and muffins (unless specified as lowfat). Better: Most breads, including bagels and pitas. Best: Whole-grain -- and therefore high-fiber -- breads. DAIRY Bad: High-fat products such as whole milk, butter, margarine, cream and the cheeses. Better: One percent milk; reduced-fat cheeses; butter/margarine with the keywords "No Trans Fatty Acids" and "No Hydrogenated Oils." Best: Skim milk; fat-free yogurt (sugarless if looking to cut calories); fatfree cheeses (if you can bare the taste). CEREALS, GRAINS and PASTAS Bad: Beef- and cheese-filled pasta (ravioli, shells, etc.); regular granola. Better: Grits; white rice; durum semolina pasta; couscous; low-fat cereal. Best: Brown rice (more fibrous than white); plain oatmeal; whole wheat or spinach pasta; wheat germ; sugar-free bran cereals. MEATS and PROTEINS Bad: Sausages; hot dogs; ribs bacon; ham; oysters (can have a high bacteria content, says Correll); chicken wings and thighs. Better: Lean beef (eye of round, filet mignon, and tenderloin); lean ground turkey; drumsticks; pork tenderloins ("Pork is a much leaner meat than it used to be," Correll says, "but I don't consider it `the other white meat.'"). Best: Skinless chicken/turkey breasts and tenderloins; eggs (pull out yokes to eliminate fat and cholesterol); all fish (if canned, make sure packed in water and not oil); seafood (shrimp, lobster, mussels, etc.); . PRODUCE Bad: None Better: Canned fruit (light syrup); iceberg lettuce.

BEVERAGES Bad: Beer, liquor and non-red wine; regular sodas.

Better: Reduced-fat peanut butter; mints; jelly beans; licorice; sucking candies; low-fat cookies and baked goods. Best: Sugarless gum; pretzels (preferably unsalted); rice cakes; baked or fat-free chips; low-fat granola bars; butterless popcorn (season with herbs and fatfree condiments); dried fruits. CONDIMENTS Bad: Regular mayonnaise; highfat dressings; Alfredo sauce (Correll calls it "heart attack on a plate.")

Leasing Versus Buying An Automobile

By Ken Goosens [Editor's note. Ken Goosens works for the Tribe in Housing Finance and counsels Tribal members on loans and their credit. The opinions he expresses are his own.] We have all seen the advertisements touting leasing. For some surprisingly low cost per month, you can drive some surprisingly expensive or luxurious car. For the same price you pay to buy some putt-putt, you can have this prestigious automobile you really would prefer but feared you could never afford. And automobile salespeople are trained how to give a comparative analysis that invariably shows that leasing is advantageous. But are these leasing offers good deals for you? Leasing is seldom the lowest cost option. The lowest cost option for most people is to buy a vehicle with a topnotch record of reliability that gets good gasoline mileage, service the car faithfully and routinely (oil changes, checkups, waxing), and keep the car for at least five years and preferably 10 years or more. Most of the bad mistakes people make in deciding whether to buy or lease concern leasing. The most common and serious mistake people make is to underestimate the true cost of a lease. Do not fall into the trap of thinking that a lease is better simply because it has the lowest monthly payments. You have to look at the total cost of the lease, and not just the regular payments per month. Leases are long-term contracts with special risks. For one thing, you are obligated to make all the payments for the full period of the lease, which usually is 2 to 4 years. If your circumstances change and you don't want or can't afford the lease, expenses, especially if the manufacturer's warranty expires. You are also liable for damages as well as unusual or excessive wear on the auto when you turn it in. Finally, you must pay for automobile insurance and if the car is totaled, you may find yourself liable for thousands of dollars on a car you are longer able to drive. Leasing cars also has disadvantages for your credit history. In the world of credit, leases are simply rents ­ perpetual debts that never build any wealth or assets. On a loan for a mortgage, debts on an automobile you are buying will stop counting against your borrowing limit whenever the auto will be paid off within 10 months. However, a lease debt will continue to count against you no matter how soon the lease will be over, because the expectation is that you will need an auto and will have to lease again. In addition, leased autos do not count as an asset on a loan application, whereas autos you are buying do. Despite the many risks, leasing does make good sense in a few circumstances. If you are self-employed and primarily or exclusively use a vehicle for business purposes, leasing may have a significant advantage due to benefits on tax returns concerning expenses and depreciation. If you must have an auto and really cannot afford to buy, a lease with little or nothing down and lower monthly payments may be all you can get. For the rest of us, owning an auto builds our credit, establishes an asset, and has the best chance of minimizing long-term expenses.

you can't simply turn the auto back in early. You will incur substantial additional charges for "breaking" the lease, which you may not be able to afford and did not plan on making. If you think that the great thing about a lease is that you can simply turn the car in after the full lease period at no additional cost, you have made the second most common mistake. The lease contract stipulates several ways you may be liable for special fees upon return of the auto, somewhat like charges you may incur after you vacate a rental apartment or house. Leases cap the mileage, typically at 10,000 to 15,000 miles per year. Exceed that and you will be assessed a surcharge per additional mile that could easily be several thousand dollars. If you commute to a job, or you live on the more rural reservations or regularly make trips to reservations to see family, you can easily drive 20,000 miles each year. You may specify higher mileage limits in your lease contract, but will have to make higher monthly payments. Most leases call for you to be responsible for repairs and maintenance during the lease. While newer cars have lower costs, you may still have substantial give everyone a practice round, but the rain started coming down and stopped the event. They set up in the rodeo arena, and as soon as they were ready, the rain stopped. Everyone was provided with longbows, the big winner was Sidney Gore. In the pole peeling contest, there were men and women's categories. In the women's category, it was a close race. The contest was a timed event, which Ethel Gopher peeled in to top speed for first place. Inside the rodeo arena, there were Box and Gopher Turtle Races. At first, there was one gold turtle. The next thing you know, all of the turtles were gold, except for one, which had red polka dots on it's back. If you thought the fumes from the paint would keep the turtles from walking straight, think again. Brighton Board Representative Alex Johns paint-


Continued from page 1 At 11:00 a.m., the judging began for the Rez Car Show. Debbie Carter's 1990 steel blue Silverado was looking good and hard to beat. No Indian Day celebration would be complete without a Pumpkin Bread Contest. This was a women only contest. The basic ingredients were provided (pumpkin, grease, flour and sugar). The participants had to provide their own special ingredients and the cooking was done at the culture ground over an open fire. Judging was based on the bread's overall appearance, taste and consistency. The Archery contest had a little trouble getting started. They tried to

ed his box turtle gold from head to toe, and it ran all the way to the finish line for first place. The last contest was the Horse Race, which took place behind the culture grounds. This race had men and women divisions, enter at your own risk and participants had to ride bareback. In the first stretch, Alex Johns was in the lead, until his horse jumped into a large water puddle, leaving Johns in the mud. Koty Brugh and Sidney Gore passed him by, running neck and neck on the back stretch for a tie win. In the women's division, Emma Browd kept a short lead in front of the rest of the riders throughout the race. Brighton Indian Day was very entertaining, a lot of fun and was sponsored by Councilman John Wayne Huff, Sr.

Announcements v Ahnahhegeh v Nakorkerkecetv


Good-bye In loving memory of Tiffany Doctor and Wesley Frank And so it comes just as it is A day no longer here. Through my trembling fingers Tips the memories of the years I wave farewell to all our dreams. I will forget you never I wonder if our crazy dreams Will stay with you forever. But, as I cry in pain of loosing My dear and such good friends. I will not close the book and Say "Farewell, this is the end." For good-byes create swift Hellos. Days from now you'll see that Through it hurts to say good-bye Your friend I'll always be. Respectfully, Mallory Osceola Someone should have taught him I went to a birthday party But I remembered what you said You told me not to drink at all So I had a sprite instead I felt proud of myself The way you said I would That I didn't choose to drink and drive, Though some friends said I should. I know I made a healthy choice and Your advice to me was right As the party finally ended, And the kids drove out of sight. I got into my own car, Never knowing what was coming, Something I expected least. Now I'm lying on the pavement I can hear the police say "The kid that caused this wreck was drunk." His voice seems far away My own blood is all around me As I try hard not to cry I can hear the paramedic say, "This girl is going to die." I'm sure the guy had no idea While he was flying high, Because he chose to drink and drive That I would have to die. So why do people do it, Knowing that it ruins lives? But now the pain is cutting me Like a hundred stabbing knives Tell my brothers and sisters not to be afraid, Tell daddy to be brave, And when I go to heaven to put "Daddy's Girl" on my grave. Someone should have taught him That it's wrong to drink and drive Maybe if his mom and dad had, I'd still be alive. My breath is getting shorter I'm really getting scared These are my final moments And I'm so unprepared I wish that you could hold me, Mom As I lie here and die. I wish that I could say I love you and good-bye.
