the PLUS Advisory Board
The following report was
submitted to the Glades County
Commission on Feb. 12.i
The Port LaBelle Utility Sys-
tem recently completed two
major projects -- the construc-
tion of a water treatment plant
and the construction of a trans-
mission and service pipe net-
work for Banyan Village.
The first project, a newly
constructed water treatment
plant located at 6002 Cedar-
wood Parkway, was fully
completed in October 2007. It
replaces the previous plant on
the same site. The new plant
went on line in late July 2007.
The new plant can deliver
0.90 million gallons per day
(GPD) of potable water, with
a maximum expansion capac-
ity of 1.8 million GPD to supply
future demand. The old plant is
off-line and will be dismantled.
The new plant was designed
by Craig A. Smith & Associates

Carl Daley told the group of
teammates, students, coaches
and teachers assembled in the
library for the signing that this is
just the first step for his son. "The
sky's the limit," he said, empha-
sizing that life requires "the whole
package" not just athletic ability.
Ben was raised in the church
and, by all accounts, is an up-
standing young man. His dad
coached him in soccer and also
helped out in Pop Warner, so he
knew Ben had the ability to go far
and always kept his mind to what
he was doing. He said from the
first day Ben stepped out on the
football field with Pop Warner he
was a standout a natural.
Cowboy Coach Ron Dunbar
all but glowed, talking about Ben
and his accomplishments. He
said this honor student is a per-
fect example of a dedicated stu-
dent athlete, respectful and very
coachable. He said, "Ben is one
of the most dedicated players of
my career." He added that coach-
ing Ben was thoroughly enjoy-
able and the young man is a great
example. "He never asked why
-- just 'how do you want me to do
As a Cowboy, Ben was a de-
fensive end, wide receiver and
was one of the key aspects of the
LHS defense. He was respected
on the field by opponents and
was double teamed often.
There are a lot of good foot-
ball players, but Ben has it all.
Coach Dunbar said that Ben's first
step caught Fordham's attention.
"Others are quick but Ben's like
a Mercedes. He gets started in a
hurry and has the grades, too."
For a school like Fordham, aca-
demics are as important as ath-
letic ability. "Ben has good feet.
He's quick and has great instincts.
He's going to have a great career,"
Coach Dunbar said, adding that
he believes Ben may be playing
a linebacker position at Fordham.
He noted that Fordham will pro-
vide Ben with a tremendous ath-
letic and academic opportunity.
He also brought a balance
to the Cowboys, said teammate
and friend since sixth grade Ma-
rio Gonzalez "Ben deserves it
because he has the grades. His
family struggled for a long time.
He's an aggressive leader.' When
we were down, fighting among

Putting others first:
The heart of a happy
By Dr. Les Morgan
Caloosa Baptist Church
Last Sunday I gave a conclud-
ing story in my sermon that is
powerful. The story, very moving
that it is, was not
original with me.
It is taken from
a book written
by Dale Gal-
Dream a New i-, 7
us to- wrap our Dr. Les
arms around the Morgan
real focal point
of Valentine's Day, showing love
to others in a selfless way. That,
after all, is the true meaning of
love, is it not?
Here is the story.
Little Chad was a shy, quiet
young fella. One day he came
home and told his mother he'd
like to make a valentine for ev-
eryone in his class.. Her heart
sank. She thought, "I wish he
wouldn't do that!" because she
watched the children when they
walked home from school. Her
Chad was always behind them.
They laughed and hung on to
each other and talked to each
other. But Chad was never in-
cluded. Nevertheless, she decid-
ed she would go along with her
son. So she purchased the paper
and glue and crayons. For three
whole weeks, night after night,
Chad painstakingly made thirty-
Valentine's Day dawned, and
Chad was beside himself with
excitement! He carefully stacked
'them up, put them in a bag, and
bolted out the door. His mom
+ decided to bake him his favor-
ite cookies and serve them up
warm and nice with a glass of
milk when he came home from
school. She just knew he would
be disappointed ... maybe that
would ease the pain a little. It
hurt her to think that he wouldn't
get many valentines -- maybe
none at all.
That afternoon she had the
cookies and milk on the table.
When she heard the children
outside, she looked out the win-
dow. Sure enough here they
came, laughing and having the
best time. And, as always, there
was Chad in the rear. He walked
a little faster than usual. She fully
expected him to burst into tears
as soon as he got inside. His
arms were empty, she noticed,
and when the door opened she
choked back the tears.
"Mommy has some milk and
cookies for you."
But he hardly heard her words.
He just marched right on by, his
face aglow, and all he could say
"Not one ... not a one."
Her heart sank.
And then he added, "I didn't
forget a one not a single one!"
That is a powerful story, isn't?
I believe it is gripping because it
highlights genuine love and sin-
cerity of a giver. And when you
think about it, who is a greater
giver than God? And when you
think about that, isn't it logical
that He too, is the author of'love
- genuine love, selfless love?
Let that be a great example for
Happy Valentine's Day!

why am I not 100 pounds lighter?

Letters to the Editor
As I write this article, the Repub-
lican Florida Primary election is five
days away and all the polls say that
it is a dead heat for the lead. Since
I'm not competing for anything ex-
cept your attention to this article, I
thought it might be fun to lighten
up the mood.
For example, have you ever'
wondered how the candidates can
maintain such a frantic pace, day af-
ter day? It reminds me of that ques-
tion about if you spin an Oriental

does it become disoriented? Or is it

.mastering the art of not talking
about other people.
Try as I may, I can't help but
think of the story about Farmer
John who was in the fertilized egg
business. Now you might ask what
does this have to do with running
for political office.
Well, if you think of voters as a
flock, then like Farmer John's chick-
ens, the politician has to make sure
his flock produces votes, just like
Farmer John's flock has to produce
Farmer John had several hun-
dred young laying hens called "pul-
lets", and ten roosters, whose job it
was to fertilize the eggs.
In order to survive Farmer John
had to keep records, polls, if you
will, as to which roosters were do-
ing their job and fertilizing those
eggs. If a rooster, voter if you will,
wasn't performing, Farmer John
would replace it. This took a lot
of time and it was very difficult to
keep up with which roosters were
performing. So he happened onto
the idea of attaching little tiny bells
of different tones around each
rooster's neck. This gave him a
minute by minute report on how
and when each different rooster
was performing. Like the polls, this
gave him time to sit back and make
his selective decisions on which
rooster's, stayed or were dropped.
Just like in any "fertilizing event,"
much like a "political contest," fa-'
vorites do have a way of emerging.
In farmer John's case, it was roost-
er-Big Al, and a fine performer he
was. But on this particular morn-
ing with bells going off merrily, Big
Al's bell hadn't rung at all. So when
Farmer John went to investigate,
he found that Big Al had his bell in
his beak, allowing him to sneak up
on the pullets and perform with-
out having to chase them. Farmer
John was so proud of Big Al, that
he entered him in the "fertilizing,
contest" at the State Fair, not unlike
a "Presidential Primary," and he be-
came an overnight sensation with
the judges, outperforming every
rooster in the state.
The result was that the judges,
like an electorate, awarded can-
didate Big Al, the "No Bell Piece
Prize!", and to top it off created a
new category award, the "Pullet-
surprise" as well!
Without a doubt Big Al was a
politician in the making, and way
ahead of the rank & file. Who else
but a politician could figure out
how to win two of the most highly
coveted awards on our planet by

Festival is now history. This was our
17th year for the festival.
We thank you for your help in
promoting our festival through The
Glades County Democrat.
The people who attended had a
good time, but many people chose
to support other attractions out of
the county. This was also true at
the Ortona Cane Grinding Festival.
These small communities do their
very best to have a fun filled festi-
val for the public and still be able to
support our causes with the money
we make. It takes many people to
really make these festivals a true

One of the most important el-
ements discussed was the desire
to hire locals to benefit from ,the
many employment opportunities
being created in connection with
the restoration effort.
"We put together partnerships
with educational institutions as
well as the workforce develop-
ment alliance," said Jackson. "To
date we have trained and gradu-
ated 41 construction workers and
over 150 equipment operators."
Keeping with the topic of con-
struction, the old sheriff's substa-
tion located at the fairgrounds in
Clewiston faces demolition.
Vice Chair Bill Maddox sug-

building is worth saving.
Other members of the Board,
however, agree that even if the
building is restored to accom-
modate operating standards,
the restoration costs outweigh
the advantages of erecting a
new substation. "We've had
two building officials and an ar-
chitect look at that building that
were all experts in their field and
all of them say you can't bring it
up to current codes," Commis-
sioner Kevin McCarthy stated.
"The building is over 50 percent
There were 11 bids that called
for the demolition of the old.

Join bikers poker run against cancer WW
By Patty Brant
Vroom vroom! You know
when the motorcycles have ifit
town! Impressive -- whether
you're a motorcycle nut or not.
Even more impressive is the
heart that many of these "Born
to Ride" biker dudes have -- tat-
toos, do-rags, chains and all. Ac-
tually, most are just regular folks
with regular jobs, who enjoy the
freedom of a ride in the open air.
The many charitable events they
participate in is a prime example
of where their hearts are.
Take this Swamp Cabbage. On
Sunday, Feb. 24, dozens of bikers
from all around the area will roar
into town for the first ever LaBelle
Swamp Cabbage Poker Run,
sponsored by the City of LaBelle.

ditional T-shirts $12)

citement once again. You won't
have to look very hard to find
