By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
VENUS Three juvenile
inmates escaped from a rural lock-
up facility in the early morning
hours of Dec. 31, according to a
press release from the Glades
County Sheriff's Office.
An emergency 911 call was
made from Last Chance Ranch


facility in Venus which is located
off C.R. 731 in the northwest cor-
ner of Glades County.
Deputy D. Crosswell arrived at
122 Ranch Road and found Win-
ston Leroy Harvey, a guard, cov-
ered in blood and lying in a vehicle.
He had multiple injuries to his head
and arm. The injured guard gave a
statement to Deputy Crosswell.
According to the press release
the guard said, "Three inmates
had beaten me with baseball bats
and then escaped." Winston was
attended by EMS, and taken to Lee


Memorial Hospital by helicopter.
Dep. Crosswell continued fur-
ther into the property and was met
by Robert Morris, another injured
guard. Mr. Morris told the deputy
that he had been distracted by one
of the inmates who reported that a
toilet was backed up. Mr. Morris
entered the restroom to fix the
problem.
He said he was then jumped by
three inmates who overpowered
him and threw him to the ground.
They began kicking his head.
After the attack, he was stuffed

Muse hosts a health fair


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
MUSE The new year's
first Health Fair will be held
Saturday, Jan. 13 at the Muse
Multi-Purpose Building on
Loblolly Bay Road/County
Road 720 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Both Glades and Hendry
County are taking part in this
event.
"We will be focusing on
bicycle safety and giving away
free bicycle helmets.
One of the most important
things is to always wear a hel-
met," says Alina Miracle of the
Glades County Health Depart-
ment. "So if you don't already
have one, come to the health
fair and we'll give you one
absolutely free."


Ms. Miracle encourages the
community to attend the
event.
"We'll also be paying atten-
tion to blood pressure," she
said. "Even if you don't do any-
thing else at the Health Fair,
come by and let us take your
blood pressure. This will be a
free service to everyone."
Flu shots will also be avail-
able at the fair.
According to Mary Ruth
Prouty of the Hendry County
Health Department, there will
be other free screenings
including cholesterol, hemo-
globin and bone density.
Additionally, all sorts of
information on health from
personal health to injury pre-
vention to emergency pre-
paredness will also be offered.
The focus is on the impor-


tance of incorporating simple
preventive and positive health
behaviors into everyday life.
When we take even the sim-
plest steps to improve our
health, results can be signifi-
cant, according to the health
fair representatives. Practicing
prevention everyday is the key
to staying healthy, they said.
The purpose of this free
Health Fair is to raise aware-
ness of simple steps that each
person can take to improve
their own health.
In addition to the health care
features of the fair, there will be
"add on" extras such as one of
those famous Muse cake sales,
plus hamburgers and hotdogs,
courtesy of the Muse Volunteer
Fire Department.
There is no admission
charge to attend the fair.


into a mattress cover and locked in
a restroom closet. Later, Mr. Morris
freed himself from the mattress
cover and kicked open the door.
When he looked outside, he
noticed his car had been stolen,
then saw the car being driven
down the driveway and out to C.R.
731. He was treated by EMS.
As of press time this week, the
three juvenile offenders had not
been apprehended
Judge J. Lundy signed warrants
for their arrest. All three are subject
to charges of felony battery, false


imprisonment, criminal mischief,
burglary, grand theft of a motor
vehicle and escape.
The escaped inmates are Jesus
A. Duran, 15; Edward Russo
Woodruff, 14; and Andrew James
Helderman, 16. The stolen vehicle
is a beige 1989 Honda Civic with
Florida tag J26TBD.
The Last Chance Ranch is just a

Team plans
safe day

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN In 2004,
18 children or teens were killed
and 397 were injured in Florida
when they crossed traffic at the
wrong time and place.
Local law enforcement
agencies are hoping to keep
those statistics- away from this
area.
The Glades County Commu-
nity Traffic Safety team has
planned a pedestrian safety
awareness day known as "Walk
the Right Path." It will focus on
the hazards that school stu-
dents and other walkers face
when they cross U.S. 27.


Children, teens and their
families will get to meet Florida
Highway Patrol representatives,
Glades County deputies, and
EMS workers. They will encour-
age all pedestrians to use the
designated crosswalk on the
heavily used highway that runs
through the middle of town.
Walk the Right Path will be
held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on
Saturday, Jan. 27. It will be near
the Glades County Sheriff's
Office on Sixth Street, which
has a crosswalk.
Prizes, beverages and
coupons will. be available to
children and teens. English and
Spanish will be spoken.
Donations from local busi-
nesses and individuals are
requested to make the event

road patrol.
The Glades County Com-
munity Traffic Safety team met
Jan. 4 and focused on the
multi-agency activity report.
The new pedestrian safety
awareness brochure was
introduced and plans have
been made to alert the public
about crosswalk issues.
Captain Johnson of the Flori-
da Highway Patrol reported that
several troopers are on call

SFWMD small business program quite successful


WEST PALM BEACH, FL The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) is among the
most progressive agencies in the
State of Florida in providing oppor-
tunities for small businesses,
according to new data released this
week by the agency's procurement
department. In the five months
since SFWMD obtained rulemak-
ing authority to create its Small
Business Enterprise (SBE) Pro-
gram, 542 small businesses have
been certified by SFWMD's pro-
curement department as potential
vendors and contractors exceed-
ing in less than two quarters the
agency's first-year goal of 500 certi-
fied small business vendors.
The SFWMD SBE Program was
adopted by SFWMD's Governing
Board on May 10, 2006 and


became effective after rulemaking
on August 3. Since then, SFWMD
has received more than 700 SBE
applications and certified nearly 77
percent of all applicants.
The SBE Program offers addi-
tional consideration to small busi-
nesses in SFWMD's solicitation
process. The rule includes provi-
sions for bid equalization, shel-
tered markets, points for SBE par-
ticipation in proposals, and SBE
subcontract participation goals. A
participating firm must be certified
by SFWMD and demonstrate that
its three-year average gross
receipts, together with those of its
affiliates, do not exceed $1.3 million
for construction, $5 million for
commodities, and $6 million for
services.
"Small businesses play a vital


role in our state economy, and
through SFWMD's SBE Program,
these firms will have new oppor-
tunities to participate in numer-
ous, important regional initia-
tives," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Kevin McCarty.
"We invite small businesses to
become certified as SBE ven-
dors, and we encourage them to
share in our vision to preserve
and protect our area's unique
natural resources."
The SFWMD's track record of
consistent, exponential growth in
the hiring of minority-owned and
small businesses over the past six
years is among the most notable
in the State of Florida. From 2000
to 2005, SFWMD managed one of
the most successful Minority Busi-
ness Enterprise (MBE) programs


in the State, with more than 800
certified minority vendors and an
increase in minority expenditures
from $14.7 million to nearly $55
million during that timeframe a
surge of more than 370 percent.
Former Governor Jeb Bush's One
Florida initiative identified the
SFWMD's minority business pro-
gram as a model for the State.
When the federal courts termi-
nated the Miami-Dade County MBE
Program in late 2005, SFWMD
decided to transition to a race/gen-
der-neutral program and immedi-
ately pursued the creation of a
small business program to replace
its previous MBE initiative.
An aggressive marketing plan
that included direct outreach to
more than 4,000 South Florida
businesses and a host of special


events was implemented this past
summer to ensure the successful
launch of the new SFWMD SBE
Program. A new website also was
created at www.sfwmd.gov/sbe to
assist interested firms in the appli-
cation process and provide all the
requisite forms online.
"These outreach efforts demon-
strate our agency's commitment to
ensuring that its vendors accurately
reflect the diversity of the commu-
nities we serve," added SFWMD
Procurement Director Frank Hay-
den, "Our procurement staff has
aggressively engaged community
leaders and government officials to
help market SFWMD's new SBE
Program and collectively develop
incentives that will attract local

City councilmen



prioritize issues


Zoning and code
enforcement
discussed

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Moore
Haven City Council is preparing to
dive into zoning issues as city lead-
ers look ahead at future growth.
The council has scheduled a
workshop Jan. 22 to focus on
these issues. It is a continuation
of a previous workshop meeting
in December.
The December zoning work-
shop brought up changes and
amendments that are inevitable as
the city prepares for vast growth that
is predicted for the entire Glades
area and the communities sur-
rounding Lake Okeechobee. Many
residents want to upgrade or restore
their homes, businesses and invest-
ment properties and all of them
must adhere to zoning rules.
Local and out of town planners
and developers want to do business
within the city limits. Buyers and
sellers need to know exactly which
ordinances they must abide by and
how any amendments will affect
the future of their investments.
Zoning plans within the city are


complex and have multiple issues
to be resolved. Decisions will have
to be made on what is allowed in
residential, rural residential, com-
mercial and industrial zones, for
example.
The council is working to
decide exactly how many single
family homes, multi-family units,
offices, retail units, warehouses
and factories that each zone should
accommodate.
The city must decide if homes
can be site built, modular, mobile
or manufactured.
Also under consideration are
population density, homeowner
association rules, and impact fees
which are regulated by the state.
A code enforcement officer has
been hired in order to uphold the
already existing city ordinances that
are intended to keep neighbor-
hoods and businesses from falling
into disrepair, or were set in place
to prohibit nuisances.
The city council workshop of
Jan. 22 will focus on a priority list
with additional items.
Some issues on the list may
include organization of meeting
procedures, planning a quarterly
budget, utilities, marinas, new busi-
nesses, restoring the Moore Haven
Canal, and an industrial site.

Service officer ready to help veterans


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades
County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY" For
many veterans, navigating
through the bureaucratic tape
is sometimes a difficult proposi-
tion. After having spent years
serving their country during
peace and war, for veterans get-
ting the benefits they deserve,
or the help they need, is prob-
lematic.
But at least in Glades County,
veterans can find help in Jim
Herrington, who served in the
U.S. Air Force from 1946 to 1949
himself and again in the Korean
War from 1950 to 1952.
Mr. Herrington helps veter-
ans in a number of ways, not
the least of which is making
sure that the government is
doing all it can to aid them if
they are in need.
"My job, my assignment, is to
assist any honorably discharge
veterans and their families in any
capacity that they need from the
Veterans Administration," he
explained. "That is, to apply for
benefits, help them get through
various forms of paper work,


even track medications that have
not arrived."
His role sees him filing all the
necessary paperwork to help
quality veterans.
"For instance, recently there
was a veteran in Lakeport whose
hearing had failed dramatically.
When I talked with him he told
me there was no use to pursue
his need because he wouldn't
get anything any help,"
remembered Mr. Herrington. "I
helped him apply. We did the
paper work, he got the hearing
aids, plus $250 a month disabili-
ty. This is just an example of the
help that's possible."

Mr. Herrington can be found
in three locations in Glades
County. On Mondays he is at the
Buckhead Community Center
on S.R. 78 just west of the Okee-
chobee County line, 30 miles
northeast of Moore Haven. Tues-
days he is at the Muse Multi-Pur-
pose Building on Loblolly Bay
Road/Route 720 from 8 to 11:30
a.m. Then Wednesdays he is at
the American Legion Hall, 600
River Road in Moore Haven
from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. No
appointment is necessary to
meet with Mr. Herrington.


oWSCoZ.unit c omi


Jim Herrington has been a Vet-
erans Advocate for just under two
years, about which he says, "This
is not a stagnant job. Everyone
who serves in the same capacity
as I do must go'to a week-long
seminar twice a year.
"These seminars are for the
purpose of keeping these veter-
an service officers updated with


new rules and regulations or
deleting ones that no longer
apply. After all, rules change,
procedures change nothing
stays the same."
There is a Veteran Advocate
service officer in each county of
the state of Florida. Mr. Herring-
ton can be reached at (863) 227-
3747.

4 OPINION Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, January 1 1, 2007


Speak Out

Have an opinion or a question about a public issue? Post it anytime
at the MooreHaven/Glades issues forum at http://www.newszapfo-
rums.con/forum57. It is a hometown forum so visit the page as often
as you would like and share your comments (but no personal attacks
or profanities, please). You can also make a comment by calling our
Speak Out 24-hour opinion line at (863) 983-9140. Comments will be
published in the newspaper as space permits.
MY TWO CENTS: For all of those complaining that some people
weren't asked by County Commissioners for their input on the
power plant, how many commission meetings have they been to
before now? Meetings are advertised a year in advance. Maybe if
those people had attended a commission meeting before now, like
a couple of years ago when the board had to cut insurance and
freeze raises for county employees to avoid a $1 million budget
deficit, they'd have a different outlook on the FPL project. That
same year, Glades County's general fund was only $4 million.
Hendry County's was $17 million. Lee County's was $173 million
and you can bet that Collier, Charlotte and St. Lucie County's was a
whole lot more than that. So I don't think you can call the commis-
sion's support for the FPL project greed. I think you call that good
government.

HEARING THE PUBLIC: As to the inaccurate allegation that
Glades County Commissioners or FPL have attempted to avoid pub-
lic hearings concerning the proposed Glades Power Park project, I
would point out that as part of the site permit process, at least one,
likely two public hearings will be scheduled before an administra-
tive law judge before the project can be finally approved by the Pub-
lic Service Commission, the Governor and the Cabinet. We expect
the Sierra Club and others to turn out by the bus full. I only hope
that those Glades and Hendry County residents with a. little com-
mon sense do the same.

BIRDING TOUR: Our annual birding tour is coming up. This is a
great chance to show off the natural wonders of our county. But it
makes me wonder what will happen to those birds if there is a
problem with pollution from the proposed power plant. Can we
really afford to risk such a threat to our delicate ecosystem?

Lessons on growing vegetables


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
A peek at our local papers
shows that interest in the first ever
Okeechobee County Fair is begin-
ning to grow. County Fairs are a fun
way to not only have a great time,
but also can be a nice way to strut
your stuff.
At this year's first ever Fair, I've
been asked to help coordinate the
exhibits and entries of our local gar-
den enthusiasts. Vegetables from
your home garden will be the
emphasis on this year's horticultur-
al divisions. With a good turnout of
both exhibitors and helpers, the
Fair will expand in future years to
include other kinds of garden good-
ies, such as foliage and flowers.
If you would like to know more
about how to grow vegetables,
next Saturday, Jan. 13, 1 will be part
of an open house at Varri Green
Farm, one of our local vegetable
farms. Our new FYN Program
Assistant, Angela Sachson, will also
be at the Thursday night Main
Street Farmer's Market to give out
good gardening gleanings.
You can stop by and ask us more
about how to get ready for the Fair.
At that time, copies of the rules and
entry forms will be available to
guide local gardeners on their way
to a blue ribbon or purple rosette.


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION

Farm Tour &
Farmer's Market
Last spring I wrote an article on
Organic Gardening, and featured a
local organic farm. Sal and Holly
have been working hard at Varri
Green Farm to produce "produce"
without the use of chemical pesti-
cides and fertilizers.
Their farm is designed to meet
the increased desires of consumers
for locally grown healthy food, and
is based on a concern for sustain-
able agriculture.
Other Fresh from Florida farm
products are featured at local
farmer's markets, including our
own Okeechobee Main Street's
Farmers Market. The Market is open
every Thursday night from 4 7
p.m. between November and April.
Visitors will find fresh produce,
honey, and local products of other
specialty products sure to give you
a taste of the Tropics. Call Main
Street at 357-MAIN for more infor-
mation, or go on line: www.main-
streetokeechobee.com.


Vegetable
Gardening Exhibits
Vegetable gardeners will be
able to bring the fruits of their
labors to this year's Fair. There will
be three different vegetable exhibit-
ing sections for both youth and
adults at the Fair:
A garden vegetable table dis-
play is a chance to put together a
basket, bowl or other suitable con-
tainer of five different kinds of veg-
etables or fruits that have come
from your own garden. Not only do
the individual items need to be
clean, fresh and fully ready to eat,
they should be arranged in a pleas-
ing manner, and of course have
come from your home garden.
Individual plates of the same
kind of vegetables may also be
entered in the Fair. For example, a
plate of three red ripe tomatoes or
ears of sweet corn from your own
garden might be what you want to
show off.
A final category will be the
largest vegetable contest, where
you bring in the largest example of
your radish, zucchini, or head of
cabbage.
Be sure to keep in mind that
these need to be free of any soil or
excess materials. We will establish
a county record from this year's Fair
and compare them with other
state-wide records of vegetables.


Sound like fun? Be sure to pick
up an entry form and get it to our
office no later than Friday, Feb. 16,
2007. Check with the Fair website
for details on these and other con-
tests and events: www.okee-
chobeecountyfair.com.
And, plan now to have your gar-
den at the right stage of production
so that your vegetables are at their
prime on Friday March 9, 2007.
That's the day we hope to see the
Fair invaded by lots of homegrown
killer tomatoes and crispy collards.
You may contact our office if you
have any questions on how to best
growyour home-grown vegetables.
Know your
Vegetables
Youth will also be able to sign
up for a Vegetable identification
and judging contest, modeled after
the annual Florida FFA contest. It
involves not only identifying the
produce itself, but will also include
the identification of vegetable seed,
weeds, and pests with a couple of
judging classes thrown in (the stu-
dents get to be the judges!) This
contest will be open to teams of
youth representing their school,
classroom, church or 4-H club. And
if we hear from enough adults, I'm
going to push for a separate contest
to see if the adults also know their
vegetables.

GLADES COUNTY Moore
Haven Correctional Facility
(MHCF) was a "good neighbor"
to Glades County in 2006. The
facility provides approximately
3,000 man-hours of free labor to
the county each year. Estimated at
minimum wage, Glades County
realizes over $18,450 per year of
cost not spent on county labor
projects and diverted elsewhere.
That equates to over $190,500 of
cost-saving labor provided to
Glades County since inception.
The facility believes that your
county tax dollars can be better
spent by the Glades County
School Board or for economical
development than for day-labor.
The facility built a new score-
board table for the for Moore
Haven High School Basketball
program. Most of the material
was provided by Scott Bass, Direc-
tor of Administrative Services for
the Glades County School District.
The facility provided some materi-
al and all the labor and art work
for this project. It will be displayed
in the gymnasium immediately
following the Christmas break.
The carpentry shop at Moore
Haven Correctional also hand-
crafted a Santa and Reindeer dis-
play board prominently displayed
at the Glades County Courthouse.

toys for children at the RMCA and
the local Day Care..
Twelve wonderful families
received a Thanksgiving Basket
donated by the MHCF's employ-
ees. Each basket contained over


$100 in food for the Thanksgiving
holiday.
The employees of the facility
along with local vendor donations
procured over $1,400 worth of
Christmas toys for many deserv-
ing Glades County residents. In


August 2006, the facility raised
over $500 and was presented to
the Glades County School Board
to assist with "back-to-school"
supplies for children in need.
It was a job well done by
friends helping friends.

tal Institute.
According to the website of
Florida Department of Juvenile Jus-
tice, it has a structured, residential
program for serious and/or chronic
male juvenile offenders.
The public relations representa-
tive for Florida Environmental Insti-
tute, Ginger Watters, in a telephone
interview last week, mentioned
that it is a moderate level facility
secured by staff.
Ms. Watters also readily admit-
ted that some policies were not
adhered to by the employees and
said mistakes were made during
the escape.
Winston Leroy Harvey, the
guard transported by helicopter,
was released on Jan. 4 according to
Lee Memorial Hospital.
If you have any information
regarding the escaped inmates,
please contact the Glades County
Sheriff's Office at (863) 946-1600.
The three are considered dangerous
and should not be approached.

and gift cards are needed for the
event as well as the weekly and
monthly drawings for school stu-
dents who make a habit of using
the crosswalk.
The Glades County Communi-
ty Traffic Safety team is concerned
about the safety of school stu-
dents. Young people have been
seen crossing U.S. 27 at numerous
places other than the designated
crosswalk, which has a crossing
guard at the start and end of a
school day to ensure that all stu-
dents are safe while crossing the
road.
Some youngsters in Moore
Haven have even been seen stop-
ping traffic on their own in order
to cross the highway.
To receive more information,
or to make a donation, call
Sergeant Kimberly Hill of the
GCSO at 946-1600.

Remains are of Muse man says ME office


Man's death not
due to foul play,
said investigator

By Eric Kopp
INI FLORIDA
MUSE Based on the Medical
Examiner's findings, theskeletal
remains found last month near a
pond in rural Glades County were
those of a missing Muse man.
The remains were found near a


pond on private property shortly
after noon on Tuesday, Dec. 5.
According to Detective Steve Harris
of the Glades County Sheriff's
Office (GCSO), the site is about 5 to
7 miles from the Charlotte County
line and about 25 to 30 miles from
Moore Haven.
Muse is located in the western
portion of Glades County.
Detective Harris said on Tues-
day, Jan. 9, that the Medical Exam-
iner's Office in Fort Myers along
with an anthropologist from Gulf
Coast University and an odontolo-


gist has concluded the remains
were those of Melvin Keith Zehtner.
That office has notified Mr. Zeht-
ner's family of its findings.
The detective said some hair
samples were taken from the
remains and have been sent to the
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement (FDLE) crime lab for
DNA testing. However, that could
possibly take several months
before the results are known.
Mr. Zehtner was in his mid-50s
at the time of his death, added
Detective Harris.


Mr. Zehtner went missing from
his home in Muse on Nov. 2. His
remains were found 4 to 5 miles
from his home.
"There was no sign of foul
play," said the GCSO detective on
Jan. 9. "But the Medical Examin-
er's Office has not determined the
cause of death."
Mr. Zehtner had apparently
been dead for several weeks.
According to the GCSO detec-
tive, Mr. Zehtner was not abducted
from his home.
"He had some issues and, basi-


cally, just walked away," said
Detective Harris. "Years ago his
family owned the property where
he was found and we think he
reverted back."
Shortly after the body was
found in December, Detective Har-
ris estimated that it could have
been exposed to the elements for
several months.
"I was surprised at the condi-
tion of the bones for being out
there," he said in a telephone inter-
view shortly after the remains were
found.


Area resident selected for health fellowship


LABELLE On Dec. 21,
2006, the National Rural Health
Association (NRHA) announced
the final selections for the 2007
Rural Health Fellows Program.
After the completion of a com-
petitive review process, fifteen
fellows were selected to partici-
pate in this year-long, intensive
program aimed at developing
leaders who can articulate a
clear and compelling vision for
rural America. The NRHA has
partnered with Healthcare Per-
formance Solutions (HPS),
which has a proven track record
for training rural healthcare
providers to become leaders and
has been working with the
NRHA to develop appropriate
content for the Rural Health Fel-
lows Program.


"The NRHA is thrilled to
announce the 2007 inaugural
class as they
represent vari-
ous levels of
rural health-
care expertise.
We are also
very excited
about working
with Charlotte .
Hardt in this
capacity and Patricia
continuing our Dobbins
valuable part-
nership with the folks at HPS,"
said Alan Morgan, NRHA CEO.
Fellows will gain valuable
insights and build critical skills in
three primary domains:
1) Personal, team, and orga-
nizational leadership;


2) Health policy analysis and
advocacy;
3) National Rural Health
Association governance and
structure.
The 2007 Rural Health Fel-
lows included LaBelle resident,
Patricia K. Dobbins, Executive
Community Health Nursing
Director for Hendry and Glades
County Health Departments.
"I am very excited and happy
for Mrs. Dobbins. She has always
shown deep interest and con-
cern in all issues affecting rural
populations and we at the
Hendry and Glades Counties
Health Departments feel hon-
ored with her selection for this
inaugural class," said Hendry
and Glades County Health
Department Director Neftali Fer-


nandez, M.D.
The NRHA is a national non-
profit organization, with more
than 10,000 members that pro-
vides leadership on rural health
issues. The Association's mis-
sion is to improve the health and
wellbeing of rural Americans
and to provide leadership on
rural health issues through advo-
cacy, communications, educa-
tion and research. The NRHA
membership is made up of a
diverse collection of individuals
and organizations, all of whom
share the common bond of an
interest in rural health.
The Hendry/Glades County
Health Department promotes
and protects the health and safe-
ty of our two counties through
the delivery of quality health


services and the promotion of
health care standards. For addi-
tional information please con-

by a lecture with lunch, followed by
an afternoon tour, followed by din-

Public comment sought on snook fishery management


Floridians have a chance to
comment on snook fishery man-
agement during one of five pub-
lic workshops scheduled
throughout the state this month.
A recent Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) stock assessment for
snook concluded the manage-
ment goal of a 40 percent
spawning potential ratio estab-
lished for this fishery is not being
met, and increasing fishing effort
is contributing to the declining
rate.
Spawning potential ratio is
the ratio of the egg production of


mature fish in a fished popula-
tion to the egg production that
would exist if the population
was not fished.
The purpose of the work-
shops is to review FWC's recent
snook stock assessment and
consider recommendations
made by a workgroup formed by
the FWC to help evaluate the
management of the snook fish-
ery. The workgroup recommen-
dations for snook include nar-
rowing the current 27-34 inches
total length slot limit, changing
the closed seasons and reducing
the Atlantic coast daily bag limit


from two fish per day to one fish.
The public is encouraged to
participate at the workshops,
which will take place from 6 to 8
p.m. as follows:
Monday, Jan. 22 at the Old
County Court House, 2115 Sec-
ond St., Fort Myers;
Tuesday, Jan. 23 at the FWC

tute, 100 Eighth Ave. S.E., KAS

Monofilament

netting rules

may change
The Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission
(FWC) has planned two public
workshops to address a proposed
rule change to restrict removal of
rectangular monofilament nets
from state waters.
The rule change prohibits per-
sons from recovering or attempt-
ing to recover monofilament net-
ting from state waters without
first have notifying FWC's Divi-
sion of Law Enforcement. Also,
the monofilament netting cannot
be recovered from state waters
without an FWC officer being
present to supervise the recovery
and disposal of the material -
excluding cast, landing or dip
nets.
The first workshop will be
from 6 to 8 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 16,
at the Coast Guard Auxiliary
building, 5108 West Gandy Blvd.,
Tampa. The second workshop,
also from 6 to 8 p.m., will be
Wednesday, Jan. 17, at FWC's
headquarters, Farris Bryant Build-
ing, 620 S. Meridian St., Room
272, Tallahassee.

So why do some banks act like you were?
You know when it comes to financial matters, there's no room for
fast talkers. You want experienced, local decision makers night
across the desk, and you want a response in a hurry. Oh, and you
also want convenient hours, handy locations and a person who
actually answers the phone. That seems perfectly reasonable to
us. Seems like you ought to come in to Seacoast.

and making some changes in
your eating habits. What you
might not have considered is
how the stress about debt is
impacting not just your financial
health, but your physical health
as well.
"Studies support the theory
that stress over credit card debt
can have a negative impact on
one's physical well-being," said
Jessica Cecere, president of Con-
sumer Credit Counseling Service
of Palm Beach County and the
Treasure Coast (CCCS). "Mount-
ing debt can impact physical
health, contribute to diminished
productivity on the job and
cause stress in all areas of life."
CCCS encourages consumers
to make 2007 a happier year by
taking control of their finances.
Here are some tips on how to
recognize and solve debt stress:

How to recognize
debt stress
On the job: Productivity at
work can decrease if you are dis-
tracted by worries of how you
will meet your monthly obliga-
tions. If you find it difficult to
concentrate on the task at hand
and your thoughts are wander-
ing to your financial situation,
debt stress has invaded your
work environment.
At home: Do you regularly
spend more than you earn? Are
you making only minimum pay-
ments on your credit cards?
Have you avoided phone calls


UVer llmoney. n11 you II ,vvV.u yt.
to one of the above questions, or
if you and your partner are argu-
ing about money on a regular
basis, you are likely experiencing
debt stress.
In life: Most people make life
decisions based on finances -
where to live, how much house
to buy, what career to pursue,
what car to drive. When your
finances keep you from making
decisions that are best for you,
debt stress may be involved. It
may keep you from changing to
a preferred job because you are
afraid you won't be able to make
debt payments. Or, lack of finan-
cial freedom may keep you in
the same location when you'd
rather move. The stress of debt
can also affect your health, caus-
ing headaches, stomachaches
and taking a toll on your nerves.
"The stress of dealing with
debt is sometimes worse than
the debt itself," said Ms. Cecere.
"Knowing where you stand is
the first step in getting back on
the path to financial freedom. "
At www.cccsinc.org, consumers
can take a FREE online financial
health test. The five-minute test
helps consumers assess person-
ality, risk types and the way they
handle debt. It also quantifies
income and expenses to meas-
ure a consumer's approach to
spending.

How to handle
debt stress
Assess your current financial
situation. The only way to under-


and add up the total.
Create a debt repayment
plan. Once you know how much
you owe, craft a plan to pay off
the balances. Trim expenses or
increase income to add to your
current payments. Your goal
should be to pay off the balances
as quickly as possible. Sacrifices
now will mean less stress and a
better financial future.
Avoid adding to debt. Do not
make any credit purchases until
you have paid off your current
balances. Make a commitment
to yourself that once you have
paid off your debt, you will not
charge any purchases unless you
have a plan in place to pay off
the balance in 90 days or less.
Commit to managing your
money. At least twice a month,
allow some time to manage your
finances including paying bills,
balancing your checking
account and analyzing your
expenses. Remember to priori-
tize and always keep current on
shelter (mortgage or rent and
utilities) and transportation.
Get help if you need it. If you
are overwhelmed and not sure
where to start, contact CCCS at
800-330-CCCS or
www.cccsinc.org. Get profes-
sional help before the situation
gets worse and you are com-
pletely stressed out!

Alico announces additional stock repurchase program


LABELLE Alico, Inc.
announced that its Board of
Directors has authorized the
repurchase of up to 100,000
Shares of the company's com-
mon stock through Aug. 31, 2010
for the purpose of funding grants
under its 1998 Incentive Equity
Plan in order to provide restricted
stock to eligible senior managers
to align their interests with those
of the company's shareholders.
The stock repurchases will be
made on a quarterly basis
between now and Aug. 31, 2010,
through open market transac-
tions, at times and in such
amounts as the company's broker


determines, subject to the provi-
sions of a 10b5-1 Plan which the
Company has adopted for such
purchases. The timing and actual
number of shares repurchased
will depend on a variety of factors
including price, corporate and
regulatory requirements and
other market conditions. All pur-
chases will be made subject to
restrictions of Rule 10b-18 relating
to volume, price and timing so as
to minimize the impact of the pur-
chases upon the market for the
Company's Shares. The company
does not anticipate that any pur-
chases under the Plan will be
made from any officer, director or


control person. There are current-
ly no arrangements with any per-
son for the purchase of the Shares.
The company will use internally
generated funds to make the pur-
chases. The company had previ-
ously announced the repurchase
of 31,000 shares in order to fund
its Director Compensation plan.
The new plan will bring the total
shares yet to be purchased to
approximately 115,000.
John R. Alexander, Chairman
and CEO of Alico, Inc. said, "The
stock repurchase program is
designed to provide the shares
authorized by the Board for the
Company's Senior Management


Long Term Compensation Plan,
which was implemented to further
align the interests of Alico's Man-
agement with that of its sharehold-
ers while avoiding dilution to the
Company's existing shareholders."

NOTICE OF FILING APPLICATION FOR ELECTRICAL POWER PLANT SITE CERTIFI-

CATION TO BE LOCATED IN GLADES AND HENDRY COUNTY, FLORIDA:

FPL GLADES POWER PARK


1. Application number PA06-49 for certification to authorize
construction and operation of two 980 megawatt (MW) solid
fuel-fired electrical power generating units, associated electrical
transmission lines, a water supply pipeline and site access
roads, was filed by Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) with
the Florida Department of Environmental Protection (FDEP) on
December 22, 2006. The Project is known as the FPL Glades
Power Park (FGPP) Project (Project). The 4,900 acre power
plant site is located about 2.3 miles northwest of Moore Haven
in an unincorporated area of Glades County, Florida.
Associated transmission lines are proposed to be located in
Glades and Hendry Counties. The plant Site, the locations of
the water supply pipeline and site access roads, and the corri-
dor within which the transmission line right-of-way will be
acquired are shown on the accompanying map. FPL is seek-
ing certification of the Project under the Florida Electrical Power
Plant Siting Act (PPSA or Act). The case is now pending before
the Florida Division of Administrative Hearings (DOAH), Case
No. 06-5334EPP prior to action by the Florida Governor and
Cabinet, pursuant to the Florida Electrical Power Plant Siting
Act; Chapter 403, Part II, Florida Statutes (F.S.) (2006).
2. Each of the two new generating units will consist of an
ultra-supercritical pulverized coal-fired boiler, a steam turbine
generator, and a mechanical draft-cooling tower. The air pollu-
tion control equipment will consist of selective catalytic reduc-
tion (SCR) to control nitrogen oxides, fabric filter for particulate
control, wet limestone flue gas desulfurization (FGD) for control
of sulfur dioxide, a wet electrostatic precipitator (WESP) to con-
trol fine particulates and sorbent injection for additional mercu-
ry control. The FGPP will utilize coal and co-fire up to 20 per-
cent petroleum coke with coal. Facilities for handling and stor-
age of coal, ammonia, limestone, bottom ash, fly ash and FGD
byproduct (gypsum) will be constructed onsite. The raw mate-
rials will be received by train delivery using existing rail lines.
The solid byproducts generated from the combustion process
(fly ash, bottom ash, and FGD byproduct) will be recycled to the
greatest extent possible or stored onsite. Cooling water and
other process waters will be obtained from onsite stormwater,
nearby canals, reclaimed wastewater, the surficial aquifer and
the Upper Floridan Aquifer. The Project will include new 500
kilovolt (kV) transmission lines to connect the Project to FPLs
existing electrical transmission system. The proposed trans-
mission line corridor will be narrowed later to a final right-of-way
between 350 feet and 500 feet in width prior to final construc-
tion. A new 3.4 mile-long water supply pipeline will be con-
structed between the FGPP site and the C-19 Canal, where a
water intake structure will be installed. The proposed Project,
including the electrical transmission line corridor and other
associated facilities, and their potential impacts are more fully
described in the Site Certification Application, which is available
for review at the locations identified below.
3. The Florida Electrical Power Plant Act (Sections 403.501
- 403.518, F.S.), under which the Project application has been
filed, involves several procedural steps. Various state, region-
al and local agencies are reviewing the application for site cer-
tification and preparing reports on the Project. The affected
local governments will be issuing determinations on the consis-
tency of the Project site and any directly associated facilities
with existing land use plans and zoning ordinances that were in
effect on the date the application was filed. Additional public
notice of the local government land use determinations will be
provided. A land use and zoning hearing will be held if those
determinations are disputed. The Florida Department of
Environmental Protection (FDEP) will prepare a Project
Analysis which will contain copies of studies and reports pre-
pared by the reviewing agencies, and the recommendation of
the Department as to the disposition of the application for site
certification, along with any proposed conditions of certification.
A certification hearing will be held at a later date at a location in
proximity to the Project site unless the parties to this proceed-
ing agree that there are no disputed issues of fact or law to be
raised at the certification hearing. If held, the final site certifica-
tion hearing will be conducted by an administrative law judge
from the Division of Administrative Hearings at a location near
the Project site. The administrative law judge will then issue a
recommended order for consideration by the Siting Board
which will render the final decision whether to grant certification


for the Project under the PPSA. If no certification hearing is
required, final action on the application for site certification will
be taken by the FDEP Secretary.

Pioneer stories recorded Federal Writer's Project


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


'" ik>'i ^ *


Edited by MaryAnn Morris
During the great depression in
the 1930s, jobs were scarce or
non-existent. Under President
Franklin D. Roosevelt, work was
sponsored by the federal govern-
ment to provide jobs. For instance,
the Civilian Conservation Corps,
which built the early Highlands
Hammock State Park, the Herbert
Hoover Dike around Lake Okee-
chobee and replanted many of

Myers would resemble the area when settlers first saw it.


Florida's forests. And the Federal
Writer's Projects were all spon-
sored by the federal government
under a program called the Works
Progress Administration (WPA).
President Roosevelt, in his
wisdom, realized that like many
others, writers and artists were
out of work. The resulting collec-
tion of transcribed accounts of
life in the United States before the
Great Depression stands, waiting
for readers in the Library of Con-
gress today.
Within the Federal Writer's Pro-
ject are several accounts of very
early life in South Florida taken
from an interview with Mary Bren-
nan Burrell, written down by
Bertha A. Comstock on December
16,1938.
Mary's family came to South
Carolina from England and then to
Madison County in North Florida
before the Civil War. The account
states that she was 78 years old in
1938 when she told this story.
Mary met John Burrell, a citrus
grower from Manatee while visit-
ing in Fort Myers. Eventually, they
married. Mary and John lived in
Fort Myers for five years and their
oldest son, Wilbert, was born
there.
John bought land down in the
edge of the Big Cypress and built a
"cracker house" for them on foun-
dation poles of cypress. The open
corridor had rooms on each side; a
porch was built across the front
and then a rear porch for "doin'
the work". It was wilderness.
When the Burrells arrived at
their new home down on the edge
of the Big Cypress, twenty-four
miles away from Fort Myers, there
was nothing there save some very
good soil which had the makings
of a good garden and fine grove.
Four times a year the Burrells went
over the old wagon trail to Fort
Myers, to "lay in" supplies. Every
three months the trip had to be


made to bring back supplies; corn-
meal, bacon, molasses, rice,
maybe some cloth or shoes. In
fact, all food had to be brought in
until the garden could yield some-
thing for the table.
"Hardships were great for a
woman and her family, in those
early days,"
Mary said. "First of all, it was
hard to be so far away from a doc-
tor, especially for expectant moth-
ers. If you did not have family
folks to go to somewhere in civi-
lization, you had to just trust God
and the next neighbor. During
those awful days of reconstruc-
tion after the Civil War, we often
had no one to help us but some
neighbor. If the case was a hard
one, as it often was, the woman
would perhaps die and the child,
too, before someone could go all
the way to town and bring the
doctor back. Of course if we
could, we went somewhere with-
in reach of help, but some
women had no place to go.
"It was hard, too," she contin-
ued, "when there were little chil-
dren needing a doctor. We women
were pretty well prepared with the
standard remedies and helped one
another, but the women of today
with the doctor, the hospital, the
drugstore, the trained nurse and
the telephone and ambulance all
at hand, have little idea of what it
meant to be a mother in the back
woods of Florida in those days we
have been talking about."
Another thing she spoke of was
the absence of schools for the chil-
dren. In reconstruction days, after
the Civil War, there were schools
for the freedmen maintained by
northern money and pretty, young
New England school "marms".
Children of southern families were
usually taught at home or, by
someone in each community.
Families would arrange to have
children meet at one house where


the teaching was done by some-
one, often an old man or woman,
who could at least give the chil-
dren the three R's. It was a hard life
and lonely, too.
There was only one neighbor
and the two Women shared each


other's burdens, and helped
each other as occasions arose.
Then Mary's sister and family
and two or three others moved
in. Occasionally, an Indian
passed but they were not even
really on the Indian trail.

Iris Wall named Woman of the Year in Agriculture


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture Commissioner
Charles H. Bronson announced
Jan. 4, that Iris Pollock Wall of
Indiantown has been selected to
receive the "Woman of the Year
in Agriculture" award for 2006.
"Iris Wall is a lifelong cattle-
woman and rancher and a talent-
ed businesswoman," Mr. Bron-
son said. "She is a living
representative of the history of
agriculture in our state. She spent
her youth cowhunting, and over
the years established a number
of successful businesses and
became a leader in her commu-
nity and her industry."
The award, now in its 22nd
year, recognizes women who
have made outstanding contribu-
tions to Florida agriculture. It is
sponsored by the Florida Depart-
ment of Agriculture and Con-
.sumer Services and the Florida
State Fair Authority. Bronson is
scheduled to present the award
to Wall on February 8 during the
opening-day luncheon at the
Florida State Fair in Tampa. Tick-
ets for the event are available by
calling the fairgrounds at 1-800-
345-3247.
A fifth-generation Floridian,
Iris was born in 1929 in
Indiantown. She spent most of
her childhood on the back of a
horse, cowhunting with her
father or just riding for the fun of
it. During the 1940s, when the
screw worm was at its worst, she
rode every day, roping her fami-
ly's cows and calves and "doctor-
ing" them with medicine she car-
ried in her saddlebags.
In 1948 she married Homer
Wall, her high school sweetheart,
and they started a family, which
eventually grew to include three
daughters. Today, Iris owns a
sprawling ranch and six lumber-
yards, but she and Homer started
with nothing except an eager-
ness to work. They began their
life together in the Everglades,
hunting alligators and cutting
fence posts. They made their liv-
ing fencing other people's ranch-
es, living frugally and putting
money aside to buy their own
land.
They were soon able to start a
small cattle and timber operation,
High Horse Ranch, located just
outside of Indiantown. Over the
years it grew and prospered. Iris
has always been a good steward


of her land and has worked with
her local forest service, water dis-
tricts, county extension office, and
farm service agency to ensure the
best management of the ranch's
resources. She still rides through
the pastures and hammocks
almost daily and offers tours to
school and civic groups. The tours
often include a big barbecue and
lots of storytelling about Florida in
the old days.
Iris and Homer got into the
lumber business in 1962 when
they partnered with their friends
Jack and Fay Williamson to open
W&W Lumber in Indiantown.
After three years the Williamsons
sold the Walls their half of the
business. W&W Lumber thrived,
and today it has expanded to
include locations in West Palm
Beach, Jensen Beach, Okee-
chobee, Lake Placid and Sebring.
A ranch and a flourishing lum-
ber business might be enough to
keep most people busy-but not
Iris. In the early 1970s, Homer
and Iris purchased and restored
the historic Seminole Inn, where
her mother once worked as a
cook. The inn was built in 1926
by S. Davies Warfield, a Balti-
more financier who dreamed of
turning Indiantown into a rail-
road hub until his plans were
dashed by the Great Depression.
The inn is one of the few
reminders of Indiantown's boom
years in the twenties, and Iris and
Homer intended their careful
restoration of the landmark to be
their gift to the city. Today, the inn
is filled with period antiques and
serves authentic Southern food
in its dining room. It was recently
named one of Florida's top 20
inns by the St. Petersburg Times,
and is listed on the National Reg-
ister of Historic Places.
Preserving the best of "old
Florida" is a passion for Iris. She
serves on the board of the Flori-
da Cracker Cattle Association
and the Florida Cracker Horse


Association, and is dedicated to
conserving these rare old breeds
as living links to Florida's history.
She often hosts the Cracker
Horse Association's annual
meetings at High Horse Ranch,
treating everyone involved, her
friend Nelson Bailey says, "to
generous helpings of genuine
old-style Southern hospitality
and food." Iris keeps a herd of
Cracker cattle on the ranch and
still rides a Cracker horse.
Iris is also an active member
of the Florida Cracker Trail Asso-
ciation, a non-profit dedicated to
preserving Florida's cattle and
horse heritage and to providing
an east-west greenway from
Bradenton to Fort Pierce. Each
February she participates in the
group's annual cross-state horse-
back and wagon ride, telling sto-
ries around the campfire about
her cowhunting days arid help-
ing to keep Florida's history alive.
As her friend David Reed, presi-
dent of the Cracker Trail Associa-
tion, said, "With a gentle ease,
she delivers us into the old world
of woods, cows, camps, rare
nights in town, and long, lonely
months on the prairie. Were it
not for the participation of peo-
ple like Miss Iris, who actually
lived the life growing up, it would
be far more difficult, if not impos-
sible, to promote our purpose."
Iris took part in the Great
Florida Cattle Drive of 1995,
which celebrated Florida's 150th
year of statehood. She was part
of a group of cattle ranchers,
farmers, and historians who
drove 1,000 head of Cracker cat-
tle across the state in a historical
reenactment of Florida's 19th
century cattle drives. In 2006 Iris
helped to organize a second cat-
tle drive, this time to benefit the
Florida Agricultural Museum,
and she rode again, at the age of
77, accompanied by family and
friends.
Iris is a member of the Florida


Cattlemen's Association and the
National Cattlemen's Associa-
tion. She was recently elected to
the board of the Martin County
Farm Bureau and has been
inducted into the Florida Cracker
Hall of Fame.
Iris Pollock Wall lives in
Indiantown, where her authentic
Cracker tales have put her much
in demand as a speaker and sto-
ryteller. Her beloved husband,
Homer, died in 1994, but she is
surrounded by her children,
grandchildren, great grandchil-
dren, and mahy friends. Today,
her daughters and sons-in-law
manage the family lumberyards
and the inn, which is just won-
derful, Iris says. The arrange-
ment leaves her with plenty of
time to devote to her first love:
High Horse Ranch.

'Epiphany' relates to God's revelation to man


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
The season that follows Christ-
mas is called by many "The
Epiphany."
The name comes from the
Greek for "manifestation" and is
related to God's
revelation to
the Gentiles
through the -.
"Magi" or l^v s
"Wise Men."
From His birth, -
the Lord was ...
revealed to
human beings
without limit SamuelS.
and the three
wise men are a Thoas
good example. In some ways we
might not regard them as "wise"
today. They were astrologers, a
profession we don't hold in the
same regard as in earlier ages.
They did do something, however,
that was very wise. The coming of
the Lord was not without danger.
The ruler of the region, King
Herod, met with the wise men and


when he heard of the prediction
About the birth of another "King",
he set out to destroy Him
(Matthew 2ff). The wise men did
not.return to Herod to report about
their visit to Jesus, they were
"warned in a dream" and departed
to their homeland by another
route (vs. 2:12).
They were wise, not because
they were astrologers, but because
they listened to what came to
them from God and discerned
what they were called to do. We
can find an outstariding of wisdom
in the Old Testament in one
regarded as a great king, if not the
greatest king of Israel-Solomon.
When it becomes apparent to him
that he is going to be asked to gov-
ern his people, Solomon is told by
God to "ask for whatever you want
me to give you (1 Kings 3:3)"
Solomon recognizes his limits and
inexperience, and asks "So give
your servant a discerning heart
and to distinguish right from
wrong (v.8)."
That was also the gift of the
wise men who encountered the
Lord; discerning hearts and the
ability to know what is right. A


policeman I met sometime ago
who had come from Greece when
he was young told me about his
growing up in Athens as a child.
He said how he went to school,
and each student wore a cap with
an owl emblazoned on the front of
it as the school emblem. The owl
was chosen because it was the
symbol of wisdom and he added
"that's why went to school, to
become wise too."
In my own dissertational study
of clergy, I found a correlation
between their educational levels
and how they were perceived as
being good pastors to those who
called upon them for help, those
who were perceived as more help-
ful had the most schooling, and it
didn't make much difference in
which fields of study. Some of my
professors suggested that their
working through the various disci-
plines that they studied gave them
flexibility and a capacity of thought
to discern what was being said or
meant in a particular situation.
The wise men of the New Tes-
tament were astrologers; they
were professionals in their day and
in their own right. By diligent study,


they developed their capacity to
see what they were called to do,
even if their "science" was shaky
by our standards today. They had
revealed to them what was right
and what was wrong, and acted
on their discernments.
I think the same holds true for
us today, too: we can be wise by
our continued searching and seek-
ing the truth, by our diligence and
application of what we are called
to do by God, by our continued
learning and seeking the things
that will ultimately lead us to Him.
We each find God in our own way
and as God reveals Himself to us:
our acting on what He has given us
makes us is what makes us "wise."
What God has given me is not put
aside as I begin to worship or
share in what I have learned about
my faith and God's world; it is all a
part of any wisdom that I may
have. I think God expects no less of
any of us; continually working to
be discerning, to know right from
wrong, to do what we are called to
do. Then God manifests Himself to
us: every day becomes an
"epiphany" in our lives too.

American pioneers sailed on the good ship Godspeed


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I found out something new this
week. Our country is older than I
thought.
Years ago, I discovered that I
was related to William Brewster,
one of the religious leaders of the
Pilgrims of Mayflower fame. They
established Plymouth colony in
1620 followed by the first Thanks-
giving in 1621. Theywere not, how-
ever, the first English colony.
This year, we celebrate the
400th anniversary of the "real" first
English colony in the New World.
The year was 1607 when the first
permanent English colonists
arrived in Jamestown, Virginia,
beating the Pilgrims to the New
World by thirteen years. You might
remember them through the popu-
lar stories of Captain John Smith
and Pocahontas.
One of the three ships that
brought the colonists to


Jamestown was Godspeed, a the English Channel. Today, it takes
three-mast square-rigger that sailed about six hours to jet from London.

Refreshed, you sail north in
search of Virginia, but find that
everything is not as you thought it
would be. Your calculations indi-
cate that you should have already
arrived, but you see no land. As if
that was not enough, a violent
storm strikes your ship, and you
have to drop sail and ride it out.
There is great fear that the ship
would hit a reef and that all crew
and passengers would be washed
into the sea and drowned.
But God is withyou, and you are
driven by the wind into the mouth
of the Chesapeake Bay. On April 26,
1607, you make landfall at Cape
Henry.
Four months at sea! About three
weeks later, on May 14, you finally
reach your destination. Jamestown
is founded.
You have been delivered by
Godspeed, a ship whose name
means "May God cause you to suc-
ceed." That's a good name to keep
in mind as we begin our 401st year
together.
