Commissioners voted unani-
mously Tuesday, Sept. 13 to
approve construction of Phase I
of the Ortona Cemetery Pavilion
with funding from the County's
1-percent discretionary surtax
revenue, as presented by the
Project Committee. The Board


also authorized a resolution
designating the area of Ortona
Cemetery north of Central
Avenue between 1st Street West
and 1st Street East as "Ortona
Cemetery-Pavilion Park" with
such restrictions to limit uses of
this area to only those in accord
with the purpose of providing
an oasis of serenity with func-
tional service to Glades County
citizens attending cemetery
related activities and activities
authorized by Glades County


Board of Commissioners.
The construction contract,
prepared by County Manager
Wendell Taylor with permitting
fees waived, will be awarded to
Albert Irvan. Luckey in accept-
ance of his bid of $49,340.
Phase I will include the 24ft x48-
foot pavilion and ADA handicap
accessible concrete sidewalks.
The structure will replicate the
pavilion at Larry Luckey Ortona

Curry Island:



An island of



historic value


By Barbara Oehlbeck
There are those around in
both town and country of the
"chosen" counties that border
Lake Okeechobee, a lot of
Glades, a little of Hendry, Palm
Beach and Okeechobee, and
also, since they are so geograph-
ically close, St. Lucie and High-
lands, who know about it.
But then there are more than
a few who don't. Curry Island, a
spit of land in eastern Glades
County, on the western perime-
ter of the big lake that in days
agohe was a real honest-to-God


island before those who thought
they could improve matters got
to digging and ditching.
And there's a story about the
fruit that grows there, the
guava/guajava that has taken to
the wilds of the used-to-be island
like bees to honey or bass to the
lake.
It's still called an island, but
when all the diking was going on
close to the lake, the water level
of the lake was lowered, thus the
island became connected to the
land at one point, therefore an

MOORE HAVEN Stu-
dents from Moore Haven

were the guests of the Glades
County School Board and the

missioners last week. The sen-

welcomed the students on
Thursday, expressing appreci-
ation for their enthusiasm and
interest in how the schools are
managed.

board is in charge of setting
the guidelines by which the'
students are educated," said
Pressley. "We are pleased to


have you here to see how the
schools operate," he said.
"We're definitely seeing
some interesting new events
in Glades County, especially in
terms of 'the school system,"
Pressley continued. "There are
a lot there is a lot of growth
going on here in Moore Haven,
and all over the county, for
which this board has looked
forward towards making plans
to accommodate for the

All you who labor (in the aftermath of Katrina)


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
It's been said that a million
monkeys sitting at a million key-
boards, given enough time could
recreate the complete works of
Shakespeare. Now that we have
the Internet, however, we know
that's not true! Even if monkeys
could reproduce Shakespeare, it
would be a random act of
chance, not a planned work of
art, or timeless commentary on
the human condition. Let me
propose that work without direc-
tion, without purpose, without
vision, without inspiration, and
without meaning is not really
work. Furthermore, work at its
best is inspired by the presence of
God in our midst.
This has been evident as we
have been and still are laboring in
the midst of the tragedy left in the
wake of Katrina. The very things
we normally celebrate on Labor
Day took on special meaning this
year. The calloused hands, the
sweaty brows, the determination,


the roar of bulldozers, and all of
the other images of the work that
built this nation are the images
we've been seeing these last two
weeks whenever we turned on
the television.
And maybe that's why this has
also been such a hard time for so
many of us. This storm has laid
waste the labors of generations,
the hopes which have been sus-
tained over lifetimes of hard work
and wondrous creativity. At times
it seemed surreal. At times I
became overwhelmed and had
to turn the television off. Winston
Churchill once said, "To build
may have to be the slow and
Laborious task of years. To destroy
can be the thoughtless act of a
single day." It is astounding what
one storm can destroy so quickly.
But in the midst of this, there, is
hope. God worked to create a uni-
verse and has been at the job of
sustaining creation since the begin-
ning of time. To be created in God's
image means, at least in part, that
we have the capacity to create and


re-create, to build and rebuild.
Some are saying we must
rebuild on higher ground. I
know they're talking about dirt,
but maybe in this tragedy there is
an opportunity to rebuild on a
different kind of higher ground. I
once heard the goal of rebuild-
ing is to get things back to nor-
mal, and that normal is getting
dressed in clothes that you buy
for work and driving through
traffic in a car that you are still
paying for in order to get to the
job you need to pay for the
clothes and the car, and the
house that you leave vacant all
day long so you can afford to live
in it. If that is normal, then
maybe we need to strive for
something better than normal,
not only in the Gulf Coast, but in
the living out of all of our days.
God calls us to work for the
right things, for the right reasons,
in the right ways. In the midst of
this, God knows that there will
be times when despite all of our
best efforts and hard work, our


work will seem in vain and all of
our labors just wasted time. God
knows there will be times when
we will become stressed or over-
'whelmed. So God tells us,
"Come to me, all you that are
weary, who are carrying heavy
loads, and I will give you rest.
Take my work upon you, and
learn from me; for I am gentle
and humble in heart, and you
will find rest for your souls."
So let us not be discouraged.
Let us work with the conviction
that whatever our work, it is
offered to glorify God, to bring'
about a better wprld, to built on
higher ground a world where jus-
tice and righteousness are the
foundations of all we build. Let us
build upon the rock of God's
greater purposes. And when we
are tired and worn and stressed,
and when we face tragedies pre-
viously unimaginable, let us
come to our God, knowing that
God will give rest to our souls and
renewal to our spirits.


The gift of grace; the power to overcome the past


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewis-
ton
When we were speculating
about hurri-
canes and ,
their origins
from Africa,
someone sug- .
gested .... .
"maybe a but-
terfly flaps its .
wings too vig-
orously and
starts the air ae
currents." SamuelS.
That sounds a Thomas
bit far-fetched,
but nobody seems to have a
fool-proof explanation of what
gets the air currents going that
wind up as tropical waves, tropi-
cal disturbances, tropical
depressions, tropical storms and
Hurricanes.
Likewise, there are people
that are convinced that their cur-
rent life problems are due to
some tragedy they've identified
in the past. Somebody did
something way back when, and
they've never been the same
since.
One of the mentors 1 encoun-
tered put it this way: "Everyone
has a 'peg' in the past where
they can hang a 'myth'."
Sometimes you hear stories
about people who believe what
happened to them ages ago
keeps them from being who
they want to be and makes them


be who they don't want to be.
Not so! There is a related pas-
sage about that in the New Tes-
tament attributed to Paul; "By
the Grace of God, I am what I
am and His.grace to me was not
without effect (1 Corinthians
15:10".
We are what we are by God's
grace and, as someone put it
"God doesn't make any junk!"
The images become tarnished,
the body becomes bruised, the
person is disrespected, the flesh
is weak, the failures occur, but
God doesn't make any junk.
Over the years my cars or trucks
show signs of wear the
upholstery starts to wear thin,
the glass covering the instru-
ments gets dirty, the door sills
never are totally clean, the stains
from spilled beverages leave
their traces, the door panels
show signs where arms have
rested on them, there are a few
dents here and there, but they
keep going.
It is the drive train, the motor,
the transmission, the rear end,
the axles and steering gear that

Thank You

Thank you!
We the family of the late Gen-
nie L. Grimsley would like to

kindness shown to us in time of
our bereavement. May God bless
all of you. The Grimsley family.

makes the difference when it
comes to reliability and trans-
portation.
The rest is nice to have but
not really essential. The tropical
storm or hurricane makes the
difference the theory about
butterflies or "el nino" doesn't
matter too much when it is time
to prepare. The life to be lived is
to be lived today, and it doesn't
matter much what happened
way back when it is what we
are today and what we are is
what we make of it by His grace.
Paul mentions sufferings that
have been inflicted on him -
all sorts of things happened to
him in his life (2 Corinthians
11). He speaks also of "a thorn
in my flesh" to torment him and
his plea to God to take it away
(2 Corinthians 12:7ff). Paul
comes to understand that it is
God's grace that is sufficient -
that same grace that keeps us
from being tied to myths or
excuses.
Paul says through his weak-
ness his power isperfected. He
can say, "I've been there I
know" and convey that in spite


of it all, we go on. Paul gives a
long list of "pegs" in his past;
shipwrecks, beatings, robbers,
dangers from both his own and
others, hunger, cold, imprison-
ment, arid physical problems,
but. he, goes on, His 'drive train"
is intact it is powered by
God's grace. That was God's
answer when Paul spoke about
all that he had to suffer, "My
grace is sufficient for you, for my
power is made perfect in weak-
ness (2 Corinthians 12:9)."
What is considered weak-
ness is not what makes a differ-
ence that power in us today,
grace, will make the difference.
Blaming, finding excuses, look-
ing backwards (remember Lot's
wife look at what happened
to her when she looked back!)
isn't an answer. We are what we
are, through God's grace, but
that is certainly enough. Not
only God doesn't make any
junk: He builds it with the capa-
bility of doing some self-repair
.along the way when they're
needed. That's better engineer-
ing than I got when I purchased
my last truck!

Pet Corner


Doc Savvy
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. My family
and I are so upset about what we
have seen on television regarding
the disaster in New Orleans by
Katrina. We are so very con-
cerned about all the dogs and
cats. Where can we send money
to contribute to saving the ani-
mals, and how do we go about it?
Thanks Doc, Billy in Clewiston.
A: Hi Billy! I've been asked that
question several times lately, and I
had to do a bit of research. There
are so many organizations out
there, and you really want to
make sure it is a reputable one. I
saw many good ones, but there is
one in particular that we at the
office are sending money to as
well. It is called The American
Humane Association based out of
Miami. They have a nice Web site
at http://www.americanhu-
mane.org and there phone num-
ber is (305) 792-9900. Great Ques-
tion Billy! Doc Savvy.
Q: Dear Doc Savvy. Is there any
way to either determine, get an
idea of, or guess as to what type of
personality or demeanor your pet
will have as they develop? Thanks
Doc, Betsy in Royal Palm Beach.
A: Well Betsy, this is the type of
question that may have a subjec-
tive answer! My opinion about
personality or character is that it is
something that develops based
on early experiences. I think I
remember learning that a child's
personality develops by age five.
For dogs and cats it may be as
early as six months! However, in
either case, my opinion is that you
really see what some person, or
pet is made of when they are
upset. How a person/dog/cat han-
dles themselves when angry is a
good way to see what they are
made of.
Hope that helps! Doc Savvy.
E-mail your pet questions to
DocSavvy@aol.com and check
out your answers weekly in "The
Pet Corner". Be sure to tune in to

Pet of the Week winner
It's the return of "Little Jake". Jake was featured in a South Lake news story some time
ago as being the sole survivor of an attempt to destroy a litter of kittens. A kind citizen
discovered the litter in a dumpster and only Little Jake was still alive. Jake found his way
into the caring hands of Doc Savvy's Animal Hospital, in Belle Glade and soon found a
caring home. He deserves a trip back to see Doc Savvy for a day of pampering in Doc
Savvy's pet spa, as this week's Pet of the Week winner. The new owner of Little Jake can
contact Doc Savvy at (561) 996-5500. If you have an "interesting" photo of your pet, sub-

The Bonita Bay Group Rallies for


Hurricane Katrina relief efforts


.BONITA SPRINGS,, Fla. -
Employees of The Bonita Bay
Group have donated more than
$31,000 toward relief efforts by
the American Red Cross in Hurri-
cane Katrina-ravaged Louisiana
and the northern Gulf Coast.'
A nine-day collection drive
raised $31,297, which was
matched dollar-for-dollar, by the
Bonita Springs-based company. A
resident of one of the company's
seven master-planned communi-
ties heard about the drive and
donated $1,000, bringing the total
contribution to $63,594.
Sabra Cecil, vice .president of
human resources for The Bonita
Bay Group, said more than 200
employees made a contribution
on behalf of the company's
American Red Cross fund.
"We notified everyone on
Sept. 1 we were taking donations
and by Sept. 9 had raised
$31,297," she said. "Everyone got
behind it absolutely 100 percent.
The greatest thing was seeing
how good contributing made the
employees feel. They knew, with
the company match, if they
donated $100, it was going to be
$200. If they gave $10, it was
going to be $20."
The company expects to raise
additional funds through a Sept.
19 charity pro-am golf tourna-
ment at Verandah's Old Orange
golf course in Fort Myers.

placed by the Aug. 29 category 4
hurricane are temporarily living in

"It hurts to see the devastation
and destruction of my home
state," said Garon. "But it's also
been heartwarming to see the
support from throughout the
country and the world, including

Letter to the Editor


Thinking
of the victims
Hurricane Katrina; she wasn't
no joke;
Ask the people of New Orleans -
you know the country folks.
Forewarn they was, but they
didn't care;
It will be a little water, we can
go from there.
Like two thieves in the night, it
hit so fast;
By the turn of daylight, all was
seen was bodies everywhere.
Children floating on a air mat-


tress; not knowing that they would
live;
God sent them down that river;
He said, "My children please be
still."
They hit the shore in Ft. Myers, a
woman came forth, "I want them,"
- she said.
"My Lord told me so."
The children are safe at last,
because of Mrs. Moore, a Christian.
She's a the lady that opened her
door.
She lives in Moore Haven and
they're safe for sure.
Mary Shelton.

Statement from Attorney General


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Charlie Crist issued the
following statement on the pass-
ing of U.S. Supreme Court Chief
Justice William Rehnquist.
"Florida, and the nation,
mourn the passing of Chief Jus-
tice William Rehnquist. A for-
mer Assistant Attorney General,


an Associate Justice, and for the
past 19 years the Chief Justice of
the United States Supreme
Court, William Rehnquist served
the citizens of this nation
throughout a distinguished
career of public service. His
tenure on the Supreme Court
was marked by a plain reading


of the Constitution and adher-
ence to our founding principles
that the powers of government
are limited and enumerated, and
that judges should not expand
those powers by legislating from
the bench. Perhaps most valued
of all his virtues, Justice Rehn-
quist was known for his profes-


sionalism and his ability to dis-
agree without being disagree-
able. His cooperative spirit and
calm nature led to strong profes-
sional relationships, especially
among those who did not mis-
take kindness for weakness. May
God bless him and his family."


The Wren: One and the same bird


The Carolina Wren
and the Florida Wren
Such a glorious crescendo of
song from such a tiny bit of a
bird. Pavarotti move way over.
Little Wren with his russet-
bronze breast thrown back,
pearly black eyes shining and a
love song pouring forth as if he
were singing the lead in Romeo
and Juliet.
Never seeming to look where
he's headed, he's leaping from
limb to limb on the mulberry
tree delicately snatching
minute insects plus other deli-
cious delicacies known only to
wrens from every crotch and
crevice.
Wrens are not considered
migratory, though they do seem
to disappear to somewhere days
of Autumn grow shorter, yet in
the density and thickness of pal-
metto islands, even during the
shortest days, with careful
observation they can be seen
and heard scurrying from frond
to frond and scratching around
the dry leaf carpet that keeps
their floor soft and warm. But
during short days, the wren's
song is safely put away, waiting
for the first near-Spring day.
Now he's come to the tree
outside my window. If he didn't
look so fetching and sound so
utterly sweet and inviting, I'd
think he was a bit of a showoff.
But I know him. He simply
wants a witness to his plea for a
sweetheart. If she's anywhere in
these parts, unless she's deaf,
she'll hear him.
He's a trifle impatient, singing
only one song every few limbs,
then in a wide winging arc, he
soars up and out across the
pond to the edge of the cypress
swamp where his flitting is so
fast it's like a gray-bronze blur.
His stay near the swamp is
not for long. He rises like an
arrow then back across the
pond to the ridgepole at the
south end of the house. His
plans are well laid to find a suit-
able location for the honey-
moon house. He really doesn't
object to being within sight and
sound of us, with limitations of
course, because his immediate
space is sacred. The site must be
somewhat hidden, that is, a little
camouflaged, and naturally it
must be sheltered from rain and
wind. And he already knows
there are more building supplies
for his new house within wing's
reach than he or his kin could
ever use, including an endless
supply of rosy bougainvillea
bracts that cover the ground
around the corner beneath the
ridgepole. While very thin, and
almost see-through, these bracts
are amazingly strong and color-
ful, having retained most of their
natural blocm color. Now that
he's satisfied himself that he's
made a good choice, he flies
straight back to the mulberry
where his spring debut for his


love was first sung. There must
be an unwritten rule to return to
the first stage of the proposal.
On the topmost limb he
makes his perch, and lifting that
handsome little head, the song
pours forth again, reminiscent of
other times, yet exquisitely fresh
and vibrant with more original
variations than ever before. If I
didn't think I know better I'd
vow he was singing Lily Pond's
inimitable "Bell Song". He's tire-'
less. Song after song, clear, liq-
uid arpeggios up and down the
scale, a unique tonal quality
unmatched by the best warblers
of the world of wings. This .little
bird is no flirt, his intentions are
serious. He's looking for his love
and he will not give up.
His insatiable insistence in
making her hear him pays off.
All of a sudden there is a slight
movement of leaves in the near-
by cherry tree. Even tinier than
he, she flutters her little wings,
teasing him from a limber limb
of the tree that sways back and
forth almost like a swing. Soon
each makes a shy move toward
the other, yet neither daring to
touch. The.wondering is: will he
go to the cherry tree to join her,
or will she make a move toward
the mulberry.
It doesn't take him long to
make up his mind. He makes a
winged dive to a cherry limb just
above where she's swinging.
But she does not join him.
Instead, she clings to the limb
without moving a feather. And
then, he begins again. Up and
down the scale, one octave after
another, his pleading tone
wrings my heart.... and
hers...the morn is fresh and fear-
less. Her little head looks up at
him, eyes shining with love, as
he looks down at her with ten-
der devotion, and so the match
is made. A tiny twig of a limb
between them is the meeting
place. He touches her head gen-
tly and she responds. Of course,
it's love at first sight as they fly
off almost wing to wing to
explore their lives together.
The days go by and in my
goings and comings to the gar-
den and back, to the woods and
back to the pond and back
again, I see them flitting and flut-
tering as they gather building
materials for their first nest.
Sometimes I wonder which one
has the biggest mouthful. And
up and down the trunk of the
Sabal palm, in and around the
bootjacks where the fibers of the
tree are as soft and fluffy as
down... ideal for lining the nest.
Finally it's done. No more dart-
ing'here and there carrying bits
and pieces of twigs and strings
of moss. Their honeymoon of
.building is finished and that just
in time. Within the hour little she
is sitting the nest, and before
long only a matter of a few days
she's moving herself in such a
way in that little room-nest it
becomes quite apparent she's


sitting considerably higher than
at first and there seems hardly
room for her.
The next morning, just after
first light, I tiptoe to the corner to
see what's going on in the world
of Wrens. Neither are in sight!
Listening carefully there was no
indication that either was any-
where near. Hastily grabbing a
short stepladder and placing it as
far as possible from their home
site yet close enough to see, I
climbed almost to, the top,
which afforded a straight view.
Five little white eggs with red-
dish-brown spots! I was in such
a hurry to get down and out of
sight I almost fell, and just in
time. Both he and she came
winging in from the direction of
the barn, landing on either side
of the nest as if conducting an
inspection. Then one short hop
and she settled herself comfort-
ably atop their treasures.
I backed out of sight as quiet-
ly as possible satisfied that
they were perfectly capable of
guarding their home and taking
care of their own.
Day by day in passing by the
end of the house, I could not
help but try to see what he and
she .were doing. Not one time
after that first look, did I see the
nest uncovered. And then anoth-
er early morning, directly
beneath the nest on the ground,
there were tiny pieces of white
shells and little squeaky peep-
peeps that were not songs com-
ing from the nesting area. In the
days that followed, more little
pieces of shells and great activity
in and around the nest as she fed
first one and then another. Such
big mouths for such tiny
birdlings.
Her energy was boundless,
back and forth, up and down
from first light to last light, she
never stopped. How she kept
track of which one to feed next
remains a mystery. And he may
or may not have been helping
her with the endless feeding.
Their movements in and out and
over the nest and birdlings were
so rapid there was no telling
which was he or which was she.
It was not long before that
one-room nest was full to over-
flowing. Little scruffy wings,
wobbly legs, eyes too big for
their heads and those wide-
spread mouths. One by 'one
they'd make their way to the rim
of the nest then fall back. They
seemed to be in a great state of
indecision, and for once neither
he nor she was within sight. It
wasn't long before they settled
back a bit and here comes Moth-
er with more food. She had no
more finished the feeding when
here he comes, perching himself
comfortably on the brace of the
ridgepole. Seeing him, she loses
no time in going to him. Until
that second I had not noticed
that his bill was slightly open,
indicating that he was holding a
morsel of some sort. His head


turned to her, his bill touching
hers. Opening her bill wide as
she turned her head toward him,
he gently fed the morsel to her.
But he and she took no more
time for themselves. Both
hopped back to the nest, one on
each side. Obviously they had
already decided that the time
had come. They literally pushed
their five offspring out of the
nest. With needle like toe-claws
the birdlings clung to the ridge-
pole, to the cross brace and any-
thing else they could find in such
a moment of panic. Mama and
Papa did not give up. From one
to the other they pushed and
nudged the birdlings until one
was falling in mid-air. He had no
choice but to try to fly which he
did not do well but at least he
accomplished enough to break
his fall to the ground. The others
followed.
I'm watching in awe and
none of the little family seems to
even be aware that I am there.
Now they're all on the ground
fluttering and flopping around as
if not having the slightest idea
what to do. But he and she knew
exactly what the next move was
to be. They joined their offspring
and proceeded to push and
nudge them to the nearest oak
where, one by one, they more or
less pushed them inch by inch
onto the rough bark of the tree.
These little birds were quick
learners!
With such a fine foothold as
oak tree bark affords, they quick-
ly made their way up the trunk
to the lowest limb, but not for
long. Mama and Papa joined
them and quickly proceeded to'
push each one off the limb. Over,
and over, all day long, the flying
lessons continued. The next
mornihg7,there were only twoN
left who had to have a few more;
lessons. By noon these two were.
flying in fits and jerks from limb
to limb through the big oak, and
that was the last I saw of them. I
could only think that,they had,
gone off like their sisters and'
brothers to explore the grandeur
of the wondrous world they had
been born into.
However, little he and shell
stayed together, sang together,
returned to their honeymoon
trees, the mulberry and the cher-:
ry, and as far as I could tell they;
had no desire to go elsewhere.
After all, first love has its own
romantic roots, so, deep that'
transplanting becomes impossi-!
ble.
I can only think that as happy
as these two were. that for at
while they simply spent some.
time playing and reminiscing,
then proceeded to raise another;
brood which, in its own time,
would hatch and grow and flyi
away, and if they in turn were'
lucky they might find their way'
another day back to the home:
from whence they came.

on judge's

ORLANDO U.S. Senator Mel
Martinez issued the following
statement in regards to the death
of Chief Justice William Rehn-
quist:
"It is with great sadness that I
learn our nation has lost its Chief
Justice. William Rehnquist was a
man of deep integrity and honor
and a true public servant. He
served our country well, always
keeping an eye toward tradition
and working to bring constitu-


passing

tional reason to the complex
questions of our nation. Our
country is better for the guiding
hand he placed on the Court. His
resolute spirit will be missed.
"Through his work on the
Supreme Court, Chief Justice
Rehnquist left us with innumer-
able examples of legal reason,
logic, and purpose. For that, our
nation is grateful. Our thoughts
and prayers are with his family."

Glades royalty helps

youngest victims


BELLE GLADE The 2005
Harvest Queen, Amy Hooker
joined, efforts with Wachovia
Bank, in Belle Glade branch to
collect items for Hurricane Kat-
rina survivors. Amy said -that
she focused on babies who had
gone through this terrible
ordeal mainly because of her
13-month-old cousin Elizabeth
Smith.
Amy said that her cousin
Elizabeth had to survive last
year's South Florida hurricanes
when she was only a few
weeks old and realizes how


much is needed to help main-
tain babies during such difficult
times.
Amy and the employees of
Wachovia Bank collected dia-
pers, formula, food, wet ones,
water, medicine baby bottles,
toddler cups, and teething
items. Amy would like to thank
her aunt, Wanda Smith and
Nudi Ruiz of Wachovia Bank for
all the help given to her. Amy, a
senior at Glades Day School, is
the daughter of Jeff Hooker of
Belle Glade and Rilean Hooker
of Moore Haven.


BELLE GLADE- When Miracle
Temple Ministries, located on 715 in
Belle Glade, launches its "40 Days of
Purpose Campaign" Sept. 25, it will
join a worldwide network of thou-
sands of churches.
Inspired by remarkable stories of
spiritual renewal and growth, an
estimated 13,000 churches from 60
denominations have experienced
the purpose-driven phenomena
inspired by a California pastor's
best-selling book.
Pastor Nichols said, "This will be
the most significant period of Per-
sonal spiritual growth in the history
of the church. The 40 days will
involve weekend services, small
group video studies, daily inspira-
tional readings, and Scripture mem-
oryverses. If you would like to join a
group it's not too late. Everyone is
invited to attend the services. The
focus will include Spiritual growth,
and church health. We are believing
God to create bonds of friendship in
the groups and beyond the 40 Days
of Purpose Campaign."
During the 40 Days of Purpose
Campaign at Miracle Temple, the
truths about God's five purposes for
people worship, fellowship, dis-
cipleship, ministry, and evangelism


-will be communicated repeated-
ly in the following ways: An all-
church Simulcast seminar; weekly
message by the pastor; a personal
or family daily devotional reading; a
weekly Scripture memory verse that
everyone memorizes; a weekly
small group or Sunday school les-
son.
"People will hear about God's
purposes for their lives in many dif-
ferent formats," Pastor Nichols said.
"This will allow for the truths to sink
deeper into hearts, which is essen-
tial for any permanent life change.
Knowing your purpose gives your
life meaning, simplicity, and motiva-
tion. It also prepares you for eternity.
In Revelation 4:11 the Bible tells us
that God created everything and it's
for His pleasure that they exist and
were created."
Pastor Nichols and the congre-
gation at Miracle Temple along with
churches around the world would
like to invite you to come and join
them in discovering the answer to
that age old question, "What on
Earth Am I Hear For?"
IIf you would like more informa-
tion on the 40 Days of Purpose

Water managers ready for Rita


The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is rapidly prepar-
ing for heavy rains expected from
Tropical Storm Rita by optimizing
operation of the 2,000-mile
regional water management
canal system. The primary canal
system is at pre-storm levels
meaning District canals have
been lowered 1.5 feet in anticipa-
tion of heavy rain. The canals will
continue to discharge as needed.


"All western pumping stations
and flood-control structures in
Miami-Dade County have been
running at maximum capabilities
since midnight Saturday in antici-
pation of heavy rain over the
region," said Jose Fuentes, Dis-
trict Miami-Dade Regional Ser-
vice Center Director.
"It is standard operating pro-
cedure for the South Florida
Water Management District to be


proactive and prepare early,"
said Governing Board Vice-Chair
Irela Bagu6 from Miami-Dade
County. "We utilize all available
resources including the new C-4
(Tamiami Canal) Basin water-
control system to reduce the
potential for flooding in areas
such as Sweetwater, West Miami
and Flagami that historically
have seen flooding events for
similar storms."

Island

island as such, it is no more. Never-
theless, in this part of the world, it's
still Curry Island, where the biggest
and best of the biggest and best gua-
javas grow. And this is their time of
year September and October.
According to the late Mr. Vance
Whidden of Moore Haven, a well-
known native Floridian who served
as a Glades County Commissioner
for 20 years and who even after retir-
ing proudly said he "kept up with
the court house". And he said there
used to be untold numbers of the
guava trees on the island, great
stands of them. Now, sadly enough,
there are relatively few but those
that remain are big and bountiful.
As to the name of the island,
"Well," Mr.- Whidden begins,
"There used to be a commercial
fisherman who had his place on
the left, the north, that is, right there
at the island. Everybody called him
Uncle Will, Uncle Will Curry, so the
island just got to be called Curry
Island. This was way back in the
early 1900s. My granddaddy, who
was also a Florida native, lived on
that island for a long, long time.
They had a pitcher pump and they
farmed right there. In fact, a lot of
people lived on that island before
the big hurricane in the late 1920s
and a few stayed on afterwards but
not many.
"And about that time, one of the
biggest moonshine operations in
these parts was right there on that
island. It was owned by the Parker
brothers. There was Zeb, Smiley,
Austin, Ackum, and there might
have been another one or two but I

can't think of their names now.
Well, the Parkers were in the cattle
business, all the land was open
range then, but it was the still that
was the real money maker.
"They poured a big concrete
slab, that's where the still was, and
they built their living quarters on
the second floor above the still," he
said.
Mr. Whidden continued his
story, "The man that ran the still
was named Cecil Johnson. They
raised corn between the island and
where Route 78 is now, then natu-
rally, they used the corn to make
the moonshine. That still was run
24 hours a day!
"After they got it made and bot-
tled, that moonshine was loaded
on boats and hauled to Canal Point
where they sold it. In those days
'bout everybody made moonshine.
It was just another industry.
"Well, one day Cecil Johnson
was headed out going to town or
somewhere to pick up supplies
and things, and here come the pro-
hibition officer.
"The officer stopped Cecil and
said, 'You're under arrest for run-
ning a moonshine operation.' Cecil
was real quick with a comeback
saying, 'You can't 'rest me without
a warrant and papers to search.'
The officer agreed, then simply
took out handcuffs, locked John-
son to the nearest fence post, went
back to town, got the warrant
papers, came back and destroyed
the whole operation! 'Course John-
son got arrested, too.
."Now that's the story about
moonshine making' on Curry
Island."
But getting back to the guavas
on Curry Island, Mr. Whidden says:

"Every few years (like 1997 for
instance), the trees get knocked
down by freezing and then for a
couple years there was little or no
fruit, but in a good year, like 1996,
those guavas were something to
see, and to taste!"
And, he says there are those
who believe that every now and
then for reasons known only to
them, guavas and guajavas simply
rest a year producing little or no
fruit, then the next year, there will
be a bumper crop!
Both varieties thrive in sub-tropic
Florida providing delicious fruit and
extraordinary beauty in the land-
scape. While preferring rich soil in a
sunny location, both are amazingly
adaptable and quite drought-toler-
ant when the plants become well
established. Oddly enough neither
are attractive to diseases.
Raccoons and squirrels as well
as various birds prize both varieties
almost as much as "folks". These
tropical fruits are also called guava
apples.
As big and impressive as the
guava/guajava is, there are those
who vow that its flavor does not
compare with the Cattley guava,
commonly called strawberry
guava, which is a much smaller
fruit and close to the color of straw-
berries.
It is the Cattley that is most often
used in the landscape and is not dif-
ficult to find in many full line plant
nurseries. However, if you know
someone with a Cattley, chances
are there'll be seedlings beneath it.
They're easily transplanted and
grow rapidly, especially when
watered and fertilized until the
plant is well established which usu-
ally takes less than a year.

Clewiston
Day two of the tour brought the
writers to Clewiston for an airboat
ride on beautiful Lake Okee-
chobee, compliments of Captain
Terry Garrels. Two of the writers,
Sheila Callahan and Emilia Mink,
opted for an early fishing trip, com-
pliments of Roland & Mary Ann
Martin's Marina, fishing licenses
compliments of Florida's Freshwa-
ter Frontier. They were delighted to
catch several bass in the range of
5-6 pounds while, writers Karen
Eakins and Carla Waldemar opted
for a spectacular sunrise bike ride
on the LOST (Lake Okeechobee
Scenic Trail). Also, what would a
visit to Clewiston be without a cat-
fish dinner at the Tiki Bar compli-
ments of Mary Ann Martin.
Big Cypress
Earlier Tuesday, Cindy Malin of
the Big Cypress Seminole Indian
Reservation provided Swamp
Buggy Eco Tours, an airboat tour,
and swamp critter shows courtesy
of Billie's Swamp Safari. The group
toured the renowned Ah-Tah-Thi-
Ki Museum, and lunched at the
Swamp Water Cafe the Semi-
nole Burger was a big hit!
Hotel accommodations for
three nights were provided along
with breakfast daily, compliments
of Ms. Krista Hill of the Clewiston
Inn. A scrumptious dinner with an
absolutely beautiful presentation
was provided by the Clewiston
Inn, prepared by Chef Tim
Grayson (former Chef at Churchill
Downs), on Tuesday night, fol-
lowed by local history lesson,
courtesy of Hunter Latham in the
historic Everglades Lounge.
Glades County
Day three of the tour brought
the writers to gloriously natural
Glades County, where they enjoyed
a canoe trip on Fisheating Creek,
courtesy of Fisheating Creek
Campground. Tom Gaskins Ill gave
a history of the Cypress Knee
Museum, a time-honored tourist
attraction, which is hoping to make
a comeback. Grant Steelman of
Florida's Fish & Game' Commis-


sion gave a brief orientation on the
eco system and the creek area and
plans to open a hiking trail to Fort
Center. Lunch was provided com-
pliments of Joyner Development.
Next on tap was a guided tour
through Vanishing Species, Palm-
dale, compliments of owner Jeff
Harrod. A sanctuary for lions,
tigers and even alligator snapping
turtles. Vanishing Species also
boasts a gift shop and museum of
artifacts collected over the years.
Okeechobee
Day four of the tour brought the
writers to Okeechobee where Sue
Arnold treated the group to a tour
of Arnolds Wildlife Rehabilitation
Center. The group especially
enjoyed touring the butterfly gar-
den, which is being expanded to
accommodate scores of butter-
flies.
The next stop was the Ft. Drum
Crystal Mine, where owner Eddie
Rucks, owner, set-up displays of
calcite and fossils in his home din-
ing room (due to weather). He
explained how he found the mine
and his future intentions for use of
the land, i.e., opening a camp-
ground with mining opportunities,
with all amenities. The weather
temporarily cleared and they went
to the mine. Mr. Rucks showed
everyone what to look for and
helped a few of the writers find
really beautiful pieces. He gave
samples to all (some of the whole
shells with calcite sell for about
$200 each). He helped the writers'
cleanup their finds. Everyone
enjoyed meeting Mr. Rucks and
had a great time mining.
The group then made an early
visit to Freedom Ranch, where


owner John Glenn and his family
treated the group to a swamp
buggy ride through 200-plus
wooded acres. During the tour
wildlife, wild fruit, and other edible
plants were pointed out along the
way. A presentation on rancher
life, explaining all items carried on
horseback in earlier settler days.
Then they showed us why they
were called "crackers" wow!
Demonstrations on how to lasso
then followed. They were all given
the opportunity for some hands-
on training and had a great time
trying looked so easy!
Freedom Ranch ladies, Sandi
Glenn (John's wife) and mother
prepared steaks with all the trim-
mings, topped-off with home-
made sour orange pie. After eat-
ing, they saddled up some horses
and brought out cattle to give
demonstrations of roping and rid-
ing and how they get the cattle to
go where they want them to go
and how they are able to give
shots/medicine.

Gators clip the Pats in last second


By Mark Young

BELLE GLADE "That goes
down as any big time play, from
big time players, in a big time
game," said Gator head coach
Craig Dobson to his young backup
quarterback Brandon Smith after
Smith's thrilling game-winning
touchdown pass with two seconds
left to play against the Florida Chris-
tian Patriots.
Smith took over the reigns of
the Gator offense two weeks ago
when starting junior quarterback
Josh McGregor went down in the
Gator loss to Benjamin in the sea-
son opener, when their second
scheduled game become their first
after Hurricane Katrina put a spoil-
er on their planned trip to Eustis.
Smith, a flanker and defensive
back for the Gators, had taken
"very few" snaps for the Gators
before McGregor went down and
the Gators have been relying heavi-
ly on their run attack until McGre-
gor's return, which could very well
be their first district game against
Evangelical Sept. 30.
Smith had his fair share of
trouble against the Pats who
picked him off three times and
sacked him three times, but he
also threw for over 100 yards and
for two touchdowns, including
the game winner. But the Gators
certainly had to earn the victory
and despite giving up two early
scores, it was the Gator defense
who rose to the occasion to domi-
nate this ball game.
The Gators kept the Patriots to
68 yards of rushing and after a
pair of sacks, held the Pats to just
22 yards of passing yardage for a
total of 107 yards of offense given
up. It was miscues and four
turnovers that gave the Pats every
opportunity to win the ball game,
but the Gator defense was excep-
tional and they would eventually'
be awarded with Smith's miracle
drive to victory.
Special teams miscues started
from the opening kick off when the
Pats returned the ball all the way to
the Gator 38-yard line. Two early
successful pass attempts account-
ed for 30 yards for Patriot quarter-
back Sean Sanchez, but the Gator
defense stiffened deep in the red
zone to force the early field goal
attempt. Danny Escobar made
good on the 27-yard attempt to give
the Pats an early 3-0 lead with 9:07
left in the first quarter.
The Gators responded with
eight straight rushing plays that
went for three first downs, but the
Gators also put the ball on the
ground twice during the drive.
Smith's first pass attempt of the
game was tipped into the waiting
hands of a defender for the first of
three picks, but the Gator defense
stopped the Pats cold.
It would be a pair of penalties
that would halt Glades Day's next
drive and a pass interference penal-
ty on the Pats' ensuing drive would
lead to Sanchez hitting Brian Quin-
tana from 19 yards out for the
touchdown. Escobar easily hit the
point after for a Patriot 10-0 lead
with 3:46 left in the first half.
Glades Day fumbled the kick
off return right back to a tired
defense who received a little help


Terriers victorious


on the road


HOLLYWOOD Looking to
win their first game of the year,
the Moore Haven Terriers trav-
eled to Hollywood Christian
school Friday with hopes to make
a strong statement on the road.
After a slow start, the Terriers'
offense finally got going in the
second half en route to a 33-18
victory.
Jerrell Smith lifted the Terriers
to a 14-10 lead after runs of 33
and 44 yards for touchdowns in
the third quarter.
Rod Huggins added a 65-yard
touchdown run in the fourth
quarter and Barrett Ringstaff


scored from 29 yards out to close
out the scoring.
"This was a big win for us
tonight," said Moore Haven
coach Andy Ringstaff, whose
team improved to 1-2. "We
needed this to keep our heads in
the season, and the kids
responded in the second half."
The Moore Haven rushing
attack finished strong with Smith
finishing with 100 yards on 10 car-
ries, and Nate Kelly adding 126
yards on 13 carries for the Terriers.
Moore Haven is on the road
again next week at North Palm
Beach Benjamin.


Raiders mark second win


INI/Mark Young
The Gator football cheerleading squad had plenty to get excited about in Glades Day's
thrilling last second win over Florida Christian. This talented young squad are, from left front,
Amy Hooker, Kristin Duff, and Kristah Rodriguez. From left middle, Courtney Allen, Maria
Mastrioni, Rachel McGee, Jannine Manmachadl, Duri Crosby, Lauren Royal, and Sabrina
Baron. From left back, Nadia Graveman, Kristen LaMourers, Ashton Martie, Gator, Pamela


Palmer, Kristi Kirchman, and Melanie Coker.

"There was a lot of pressure. But someone had
to step up to the plate on offense and it had to be
me. My receivers had a big game for me. They
were getting open and catching the ball when I
got it to them. I just got lucky."
Brandon Smith,
quarterback


when Sanchez hit a wide open
Quintana who let the ball slip
through his hands. A 15-yard sack
followed that play and the Pats
would not be able to capitalize
on the special teams miscue. But
neither would they take advan-
tage of the momentum when a
promising late half drive ended
on another interception.
Further drive stopping penalties
and special teams mistakes haunt-
ed the Gators, but the defense did
not stumble, answering each and
every challenge that was put in
front of them. On their third offen-
sive possession of the second half,
the Gators began on their own 24-
yard line and-after-a six-yard-sack
and a penalr. Smith suddenly
exploded with a nine-yard pass to
Travis Hendry. On the next play,
Smith looked downfield to Andrew
Joseph who hauled in the perfect
strike and scampered the rest of'
the 69-yard distance on his own for
a Gator score.
But a bad snap on the point
after attempt saw the attempt fail
and the Pats held a 10-6 lead with
7:27 remaining in the game.
Smith returned the favor to the
Patriots who had picked him two
times up to this point, with an
interception of his own'to stop
the answering drive from the Pats.
But he would throw his third to


end another promising Gator
drive as Glades Day was left with-
out the ball with 1:22 left, but with
all three timeouts.
Coach Dobson only had to use
two of them after two short runs.
The Patriots looked to end the
game with one play and opted to
go to the air, which fell incom-
plete. The Gators put everyone on
the line to try to block the punt,
but it managed to sail to the
Glades Day 47-yard line with :52
left in the game.
Smith went on a rampage, hit-
ting Hendry for 11 quick yards and
the presence of mind to fight his
way out of bounds, and Karl
Charles for 17 more yards. The next
two pass attempts fell hrrmlessly
to the ground and on third and 10,
from the 30-yard line, with just sec-
onds remaining, Smith rolled out
to his left. The Patriot defensive end
was hot on his heels, but Smith
gave him just enough of a shirk to
break free and while in a full sprint,
fired a missile to Joseph who
somehow managed to get open in
the corner of the end zone.
The ball hit Joseph squarely on
his number and Joseph safely
tucked it away for the Gator touch-
down with two seconds left to play
in the game.
The point after failed, but the
Gators took a 12-0 lead and


claimed their second victory in a
row after beating the Clewiston
Tigers 19-14 the previous week.
The Gators will get a much-needed
open date next week before getting
back to work against district rival
Evangelical Sept. 30, on the road.
"Defense did it for us tonight,"
said coach Dobson. "We have a lot
of concerns on the offensive line
and on special teams right now. I
challenged my defense at halftime
to keep them off the scoreboard
and they did. Smith is a playmaker
and he made the big plays when
we needed them. But I'm going to
be even happier when he gets back
to his flanker and DB position full
time, because he can even make
bigger things happen from there."
Smith had a lot put on his shoul-
ders over the past two.weeks, but
he managed to get the job done
and his Gators are 2-0 under his
quarterback tour of duty.
"There was a lot of pressure,"
said Smith. "But someone had to
step up to the plate on offense
and it had to be me. My receivers
ha6ca'gbig game for me. They
were getting open and catching'
the ball when I got it to them. I
just got lucky."
After losing 25 yards in sack
yardage, the humble Smith ended
the game with 107 yards of passing
on seven completions in 16
attempts. He was picked three
times, but he threw two touch-
down passes.
The Gators added 205 yards of
rushing with Frank Lugo getting
much of the work. Lugo carried the
ball 16 times for 65 yards while
Lloyd Monda carried the ball. a
dozen times for 59 yards. Ricky
Reitz had 23 yards on six carries.


BELLE GLADE The Raider's
today prepare for their third game
tomorrow night, against local rival
Clewiston, while still celebrating
their second win last Friday against
Suncoast.
In their second game last week,
Glades Central managed another
stunning victory, keeping Suncoast
at bay throughout the game.
The Raiders brought home the
shutout victory, extending their sea-
son record to 2-0.
The pace was set early by the
Raiders, who scored in the first
quarter. Quarterback Bryan Mann
connected with Tarus McKinley
with a three-yard pass for a touch-
down.


The Sunc6ast defensive line was
unable to stop the Raiders, who
came back in the second quarter to
score again, with Mann and McKin-
ley teaming up once more for a 54-
yard touchdown pass.
The Raiders led 13-0 going into
the second half, and capped the
game with a fourth quarter score,
this time with McKinley breaking
past the defense to score from two
yards out.
Mann threw 4-for-I17, for a total
119 yards, with two touchdowns.
The Raiders look forward to
tomorrow's game against Clewis-
ton High. The Raiders will be play-
ing at home.

Glades Day School Junior High volleyball team


Glades Day School
OKEECHOBEE The Glades
Day School Junior High volley-
ball team traveled .to Okee-
chobee on Saturday, Sept. 10 to
play in a middle school tourna-
ment. The young Lady Gators
arrived at Osceola Middle school
at 8:30 in the morning and
played their first game at 10 a.m.


After a win against Heartland
Middle, they lost their next two
matches of the day against Oslo
and Yearling Middle a team,
which put them in the Silver
Division.
But they never lost their fire
and fought back to win the next
match against LaBelle Middle in
two games. The day ended with
a very exciting match against


Yearling Middle (B team). The
Lady Gators won the first game,
25-23, but dropped the second
game, 19-25. In the third game
the Yearling team went ahead
with a commanding lead of
eight points, but the Fightin'
Gators were not willing to go
down. With great teamwork and
effort, they fought their way
back to win the match 15-11 and


earned the Silver Divison first
place trophy. The young players,
their coaches, and of course, the
parents watching from the
stands were thrilled with their
accomplishment. Elise Gaviria
and Alexia Eigner led the team
with service points, Kaylin
Rohde led with kills, and Brian-
na Lohmann was the leader in
assists for the day.

USDA modifies sugar program to address market or marketing


CLEWISTON In response to
the sugar market turmoil created
by Hurricane Katrina, the U.S.
Department of Agriculture has fur-
ther modified the FY 2005 sugar
program, said Joy Llossas, FSA
Hendry/Collier/Glades County
Executive Director.
USDA is increasing the FY 2005
Overall Allotment Quantity (OAQ),
which is the quantity of domestic
.sugar that may enter the market
and announced early entry of the
FY 2006 refined sugar tariff-rate
quota, beginning Sept. 8. The early
entry of the FY 2006 refined sugar
tariff-rate quota does not include
specialty sugar, for which the previ-
ously announced dates of opening
remain unchanged. This
announcement follows the Aug. 19
sugar program actions intended to
increase domestic supply.
The catastrophic hurricane was
the latest in a series of events that
has severely tightened the sugar
market and threatened the domes-
tic production of sugar containing
foods. The sugar market has pro-
gressively tightened across FY 2005
due to unexpected strong demand,
reduced cane sugar production
caused by previous hurricanes and


expected weather-reduced Sep-
tember 2005 beet sugar production
in the upper Midwest.
The actions taken are intended
to boost refined sugar quantities
immediately available to amelio-
rate already-tight domestic market
conditions, exacerbated by the
forced closure of two major,sugar
refineries caused by the hurricane.
The refineries in the New Orleans
.area produce about 5,500 tons of
sugar daily. USDA is committed to
provide an adequate supply of
sugar to meet domestic needs,
within the bounds of the current
sugar program.
OAQ INCREASE:
An increase in the OAQ of
225,000 short tons, raw value
(STRV) is expected to result in
immediate availability of some
beet sugar "blocked stocks". Fifty-
four percent of the OAQ increase is
assigned to the beet sector as
required by statute.
It is also recognized that not all
'entities receiving allocations will be
able to supply sugar this month
because of the location of current
inventories and the transportation
logistics of moving refined sugar. As
a result, USDA surveyed all entities


that have been assigned a market-
ing allotment to determine the
amount of refined sugar that actual-
ly can be made available to the
market in the remainder of FY 2005.
Accounting for this "slippage," the
122,288 STRV allocation is estimat-
ed to result in some 71,000 STRV
actually entering the market.
The beet sugar allotment is
assigned to sugar beet processors
according to the attached table. As
in the Aug. 19 announcement, the
Commodity Credit Corporation
(CCC) reassigned allotment from
companies that were not expect-
ed to fulfill their allocation to com-
panies that have a greater capacity
to do so.
No cane-sugar blocked stocks
exist, and that sector's portion (46
percent) of the allocation must be
reassigned to the CCC. Since CCC
also has no sugar, the allotment is
reassigned to imports, notably to
the refined sugar TRQ allocation
and to over-quota (tier II) sugar
entering from Mexico.
The Aug. 12, 2005, World Agri-
cultural Estimates of Supply and
Demand report, estimated FY 2005
Mexican tier II imports at 110,000
STRV Assigning this shortfall to raw


sugar exporters would not help
alleviate the acute shortage in
refined sugar. '
Refineries already are operating
at near capacity and few supplying
countries are able to land raw
sugar before Sept. 30, the end of
the marketing year, even if refinery
capacity were available.
REFINED SUGAR EARLY ENTRY
Allowing early entry for the
refined sugar FY 2006 minimum
TRQ is expected to result in an addi-
tional 22,000 STRV available at once
to the market. Most is already in the
United States in bonded warehouse
facilities or nearby in Canada.
The release of the blocked beet
stocks plus early entry of refined
sugar thus could result in more
than 93,000 tons more sugar in the
market in September. This amount
is adjudged to be well in excess of
the reduced supply resulting from
the production disruption caused
by Hurricane Katrina.
The Department announced on
Aug. 12 details of the sugar pro-
gram for FY 2006 beginning Octo-
ber 1. Sugar and sweetener market
conditions are closely monitored
continuously and adjustments
made when warranted.

Celebrate farm safety with safely stored pesticides


In the wake of Hurricane Kat-
rina, we will certainly hear of
many unfortunate events involv-
ing pesticides in homes and on
the farms that have been
released into the environment as
a result of storm damage. We
can learn from these experi-
ences by reviewing how we han-
dle this important tool for home
and garden.
A presidential proclamation
has been signed, naming the
week of Sept.18-24 as National
Farm Safety and Health Week.
While it is not up there with
Christmas, Easter or*even Hal-
loween as one of the most excit-
ing celebrations on the calendar,
ranchers and homeowners alike
can use this week to review how
they store their pesticides.
According to the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection, there are several
practices that commercial pesti-
cide users must follow. Let's see
how they apply to homeowners
who are storing pesticides:
The best way to minimize
storage problems is to minimize
the amount you store. Limit
inventory, and purchase only the
amounts needed. If you don't'
need a gallon jug of spray in the
next month don't buy it and if
you need that much pesticide,
why not ask a professional to do
the job for you.
Design and build pesticide
storage structures to keep pesti-
cides secure and isolated from
the surrounding environment.
Store pesticides in a concrete or
metal structure with a roof and
lockable door. A rusted tin shed
won't provide much protection
from the weather, and will not
be very secure from curious kids
or pets. Here's a good compari-
son: Would you put your loaded


gun out there next to the weed
killer?
Keep pesticides in a sepa-
rate facility or at least in a locked
area separate from areas used to
store other materials, especially
fertilizers, feed, and seed. If a
spill or leak occurs, will the pes-
ticide get into other stuff? If it
does, your cleanup problem is
bigger that just that one bag of
bug dust.
Do not store pesticides near
flammable materials, hot work
(welding, grinding), or in shop
areas. Not only the container,
but some of the chemicals used
as pesticides will burn and
you don't want anyone breath-
ing that mess!
Do not allow smoking in
pesticide storage areas. Smoking
pesticide applicators can also
get exposure to pesticides when
they smoke or use chewing
tobacco products. You ought to
wash your hands after using pes-
ticides and before you eat or
smoke.
Store personal protective


equipment (PPE) where it is eas-
ily accessible in an emergency,
but not in the pesticide storage
area. Be sure you wear the right
clothes when using pesticides to
limit the chances of pesticide
poisoning check the label for.
what to wear.
Do not put pesticides in
containers that children and oth-
ers might mistake .for food or
drink. An empty milk jug with
mixed pesticide spray looks a lot
like milk and.may invite some
unsuspecting child to take a
drink.
Dry bags should be raised
on pallets to ensure that they do
not get wet. Your homeowner
pesticide cabinet is probably not.
as big as a palate the idea
here is to keep the containers of
weed and feed off the floor. If
there is a leak from a broken
pipe or a flood from a rainstorm,
will it move into your garage and
get the pesticide bag wet?
Do not store liquid materi-
als above dry materials. If they
leak, gravity will cause the liq-


uids to drip onto the solid mate-
rials, making for a bigger mess
and waster products.
Keep containers closed
tightly. Tight containers .or bags
that are clipped closed can pre-
vent spills in case the container
trips over.
Inspect inventory frequent-
ly and watch for damaged con-
tainers. It's suggested, at the
minimum, to look through your
stock at least once each year -
so why not do it this week?
Store flammable pesticides
separately from nonflammable
pesticides. Keep gas and pesti-
cides separate.
Segregate herbicides,
insecticides, and fungicides to
prevent cross-contamination
and minimize the potential for
misapplication. I've heard too
many cases where homeowners
use an insecticide to kill a weed,
and even the other way around.
It is not only illegal, and danger-
ous, but can kill the wrong thing
and is an expensive waste of
money.

FWC holds freshwater fish summit


SEBRING A major effort to
reorganize the way Florida man-
ages its freshwater fisheries is the
topic of a unique summit being
hosted in Sebring by the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC). The Sebring
meeting will take place on Satur-
day evening, Sept. 24, at 6:30
p.m., at the Sebring Civic Center,
355 W. Center Ave.
Through this summit, the
FWC is inviting stakeholders to
organize and team with the
agency to help design and imple-
ment management plans that will
have a major effect on Florida's
freshwater fisheries. Anyone
interested in the future of fresh-
water resources in Florida is
encouraged to attend this impor-


tant interaction with FWC fishery
professionals.
"An online survey recently
conducted by the Division of
Freshwater Fisheries Manage-
ment was the first step in estab-
lishing communications with
anglers and other resource users,
enabling us to document con-
cerns and determine attitudes
about our future direction," said
Dennis Renfro, FWC summit
coordinator.
The response to the survey
was overwhelming with over
1,500 constituents participating.
Results from this survey were
used to shape the format and
content of six summits soon to be
held in various locations around
the state where survey responses


were greatest.
'qn the past, stakeholders gave
input and FWC staff implement-
ed a plan. In the new process
stakeholders will partner with the
agency to develop and imple-
ment plans jointly," said Dave
McElveen, FWC Planning Coordi-
nator.
Sebring hosts the first of six
zone meetings throughout the
state that start in September 2005
and continuing through January
2006. All meetings are scheduled
from 6:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. A com-
plete list of meeting dates and
places follows.

Sugar cane cutters' lawsuit goes forward


ORLANDO A group of
more than 1,000 former sugar
cane cutters took their 16-year-
old battle against one of the
nation's largest sugar producers
to federal court two weeks ago,
suing Osceola Farms Co. to
recover more than $5 million in
back wages.
The class-action lawsuit filed
in U.S. District Court in West
Palm Beach came more than two
months after a judge ruled that
the workers couldn't continue as
a class in their lawsuit first filed in
1989 in state court. That required
them to file separate claims.
Joseph Klock,. an attorney for
Osceola Farms, was in Cleveland
and didn't return phone calls.
Armando Tabernilla, a registered
agent for Osceola Farms, didn't
return a phone call to his home.
No one answered the phone at
an Osceola Farms warehouse in
Riviera Beach, the only listing for


the company.
Osceola Farms is a subsidiary
of Flo-Sun Inc., which is one of
the nation's largest sugar produc-
ers and controlled by the political-
ly influential Fanjul family. Attor-
neys for the cane cutters, mostly
laborers from the Caribbean who
came to the United States as tem-
porary agriculture workers,
brought their case to federal court
under the recently passed Class
Action Fairness Act.
The law was designed to send
the majority of class-action law-
suits to federal courts, which are
believed less likely than state
courts to award multi-million
dollar verdicts to people suing
large companies.
"This is a great irony," said
Greg Schell, a lawyer with the
Migrant Farm worker Justice Pro-
ject, who is one of three attor-
neys representing the cane cut-
ters. "This pro-business statute is


going to be used by a bunch of
starving cane cutters from the
West Indies."
The cane cutters claim that
between 1987 and 1992, Osceola
Farms underpaid what was
promised in the workers' con-
tracts and then falsified the num-
ber of hours worked by the cane
cutters in documents filed with
the U.S. Department of Labor.
The documents were required as
part of the H2-A program which
allows foreign laborers to come
temporarily to the United States if
domestic workers can't be found
to do a particular job.
The workers were paid on a
"piece-rate" basis, or by the
amount they harvested. But fed-
eral law guarantees that agricul-
ture employees earn a fixed rate
per hour regardless of how much
cane is cut and that employers
must make up any shortfall
between that rate and the work-


er's piece-rate earnings.
"That costs money to make
up the difference," Schell said.
"So they would make up the
records and underreport the
hours."
The workers are seeking
more than $5 million in back
wages but Schell said the
amount owed to them could be
more than $10 million when
interest is considered. If the case
is allowed to proceed as a class
action, it could encompass more
than 2,000 former cane cutters,
he said. Before 1994, when
mechanization was popularized,
sugar cane in Florida was hand
cut by workers with machetes.
The lawsuit against Osceola
Farms is the last of five cases
against sugar companies seeking
back wages for workers. One
case was settled and workers in
the three other cases lost in
court.


Tips to avoid

fraudulent charities


NUE After the devasta-
tion of Hurricane Katrina,
many are wondering how
they can help. At the same
time, criminals are using this
outpouring of support to take
advantage of well-meaning
citizens through deception
and fraud.
People who wish to con-
tribute to the relief effort are
urged to beware of charity
scams, which are especially
prevalent online. Consumer
advocates offer the following
advice:
Make sure the organiza-
tion is legitimate. Some illicit
organizations will try to con-
fuse you by using a name that
is similar to a well-known
charity. Do your research to
find a reputable charity. For a
list of charity reports, visit the
BBB Wise Giving Alliance
Web site, www.give.org.
Never respond to or click
on a link within an e-mail ask-
ing for money and claiming to
be from a charity. If you wish
to make a donation online,
stick with familiar, established
charities and donate through
their Web sites directly.
Be skeptical of telephone
solicitations. Never give out
your personal or credit card
information. Ask for a chari-
ty's exact name and address.
After researching the
organization, call back using
its published number if you
would like to get more infor-
mation by phone.
Give a check or money
order made out to the organi-
zation, not an individual.

Celebrate 85 years of women's vote


By MaryAnn Morris
It took a long time to be lis-
tened to, but women were heard
and finally, on Aug. 26, 1920, a
legislator from Tennessee, Harry
Burn, cast the final vote needed
to pass the 19th Amendment to
the Constitution granting every
woman in the United States the
right to vote.
Women fought long and hard
for the right to vote. As early as
1776, Abigail Adams' letter
urged her husband John (who
was in Philadelphia helping to
draft the United States Constitu-
tion) to "remember the ladies"
when drafting that document.
Florida didn't ratify the Nine-
teenth Amendment to the Con-
stitution until 1969, but that
doesn't" mean that Lake Okee-
chobee area women have ever
been complacent. Marian
Horowitz O'Brien founded the
first bank in Clewiston and hired
"the foremost town planner in
the nation" to lay out the town of
Clewiston. Ms. 0 Brien took
office as mayor of Moore Haven
"years before the 19th amend-
ment granted the privilege of the
ballot to women" according to
the Clewiston News' Twenty-
Five Years of Progress Issue, of
Feb. 12,1953.


The first woman to settle in
Moore Haven was a Mrs. Kelly,
back in 1915 when the only way
to Moore Haven (then an assort-
ment of tents and shacks) was
across the big lake.
"We have 9,278 women reg-
istered to vote as opposed to
7,797 men and more women
voted in the last election than
men," said Lucretia Strickland,
Hendry County's female Super-
visor of Elections. "Our oldest
woman voter was born in 1906,"
Ms. Strickland said, "she voted in
the last election, too."
Glades County voting records
show a similar pattern. "There
are 3,102 women voters in
.Glades County and 3,105 men,"
said Holly Whiddon, Glades
County Supervisor of Elections.
"Our oldest woman voter is 99
years old and she voted in the
last election," Ms. Whiddon con-
tinued.
Other countries are different.
Since the Taliban has taken
over Iran today, an Iranian
woman cannot leave her home
without a male family member
to chaperone her. Marian
O'Brien might have had a prob-
lem there. The Saudi's consider
woman "too indecisive" to drive
a car. Let Danica Patrick or
NASCAR'S Erin Crocker hear
that one!

be answered. Gouging will not
be tolerated."
Crist has instructed Attorney
General personnel to investigate
specific complaints and ask the
following questions:
1) What was the retail price
of gasoline at the station on Aug.
23 (the date before a state of
emergency was declared)?
2) When did the retailer pur-
chase the gasoline currently on
sale from the distributor, and
what retail price was being
charged on that date?
3) What is the current sale's
price today?
4) From whom did the retail-
er purchase the most recent
shipment of fuel that is being
sold today?
This information will be used


to compile a complete picture of
fuel costs that will trace the ori-
gins of the rapid increases. If
price gouging is found to have
occurred, a civil lawsuit can be
brought under Florida's Price
Gouging Law.
As part of the investigation,
the attorney general subpoe-
naed two gasoline distributors
earlier this week seeking records
of their deliveries into Florida.
Those companies are Colonial
Oil Industries and Murphy Oil
USA.
In July, the attorney general
subpoenaed two other gas dis-
tributors: Motiva Enterprises (a
subsidiary of Royal Dutch Shell)
and Tate Oil Company, following
Hurricane Dennis.


How to help


"the Katrinians"


Many residents of Louisiana,
Mississippi and Alabama have
been forced from their homes,
and are in need of assistance.
These are not refugees, and
while they may be displaced,
many desire to return to their
communities. I've noticed some
difficulty in naming these folks,
and would suggest that they
might be called "Katrinians" -
those affected by this terrible
storm.
In the past two and a half
years that I've worked in Okee-
chobee, I've come to learn that
local residents are extremely
generous when it really counts.
The recent events in the Gulf
Coast have pulled at our hearts
and challenged us all to dig deep
into our pockets, especially in
light of our own local experi-
ences with severe weather.
With overwhelming media
coverage, many are very con-
cerned about what can be done
to ease the suffering and assist in
recovery. Officials have cau-
tioned us not to go on the road to
offer help, but we still desire to
lend a hand. And, rising fuel
costs and the expected higher
costs for future goods and servic-
es has got our attention.
Today's column is designed to
offer suggestions on how to help
right here at home, and how to
cope with rising energy costs.
1.When driving Slow
down! Excessive speed wastes
fuel. Do you really need to pass
the car in font of you so you will
be in front of them at the next red
light? Speeding creates greater
opportunities for serious injury
and property damage. Accidents
will cost ALL drivers more in
insurance premiums, health
care costs, legal fees, traffic
school and tickets. Serious acci-
dents from speeding may
deprive you of people you love
forever. Wouldn't it be better to
arrive a few minutes or seconds
later? And, you can take all the
money you save in gas and costs
and send it to the Katrinians!
2. Maintain your vehicle: Tune
up your engine, check your tires
for proper inflation, change the
spark plugs, clean the air filters.


All of these common sense main-
tenance tips can save you gas.
3. Purchase a fuel-efficient
vehicle. If you don't need the 4x4
with hemi-supercharged
engines, if you aren't regularly
hauling armies of troops all over
Iraq, and if you don't regularly
pull livestock trailers, consider
trading in that gas guzzler for a
smaller vehicle that will pass
many more gas stations before
fill-ups.
4. Car Pool. Get together with
friends or relatives, plan your
driving trips in advance, and
have a friend to talk with on your
way about town. With less cars
on the road, it may even ease
traffic congestion.
5. Save Electricity. Turn off
unnecessary appliances, lights,
computers, TVs, chargers. Turn
up the thermostat in your home
and office. Since electricity
comes from power plants that
burn natural gas or oil, saving
electricity saves fossil fuels,

reducing the demand and lower-
ing fuel costs.
6. Send money to your
favorite charity. Check out the
guidelines supplied by the Feder-
al Trade Commission to see if the
charity is legitimate; we can give
you a copy or go online:
http://www.ftc.gov/bcp/con-
line/pubs/tmarkg/charity.htm.
Decide'where your donation is
best used to help displaced resi-
dents, rebuilding funds, emer-.
gency relief supplies, faith-based
organizations, or service organi-
zations that you already know.
Our office cannot endorse any
particular organizations or funds,
but we can share a list of several
that have been. referred to us
from other Extension offices and
staff in effected areas.
7. Donate purchased materi-
als (e.g. phone cards, non-per-
ishable food or personal comfort
supplies). Contact the charity
that will receive them to be sure
they can get them into needy
hands. Once you give the items
to that charity, they must spend
money to deliver the goods -
and cash will help them pay for
these transportation costs. Don't.
send clothes or perishable foods.
