Residents Demand to be Heard in Departure of Sugar Company

El Nuevo Herald, Posted: Jul 11, 2008

CLEWISTON, Fla --- Three hundred farmers, businesspeople and residents filled the John Boy, Clewiston's auditorium to ask that their voices and votes be included in negotiations around the departure of one of the most important local businesses; the United States Sugar Corp. According to El Nuevo Herald the Florida- based company will sell more than 187,000 acres of their land used to process citrus and to refine sugar. Though the land will be used to restore the Everglades and improve the local ecology, residents worry that the companys leaving will economically devastate a community built around the sugar industry.
