MOORE HAVEN With the
opening of the new Glades County

anticipated siting of new manufac-
turing and com mercial businesses
elsewhere in Glades County and

become more crucial than ever.

Council is working with the

opment Council, the Southwest

According to Glades EDC Exec-
utive Director Tracy Whirls, the
2007 Glades-Hendry Job and
Career Expo will not only be the
first step in matching qualified can-
didates with Glades and Hendry
County businesses and prospec-
tive businesses' staff development

Letters to the Editor


Just to clarify...
Dear Editor,
Recently, there has been dis-
cussion concerning the commu-
nity's opportunities to comment
on the proposed FPL Glades
Power Park. I would like to clari-
fy the application and review
process and provide some infor-
mation about upcoming oppor-
tunities for public comment. At
Florida Power & Light Company
(FPL) we consider community
involvement an important part
of our project review process.
We filed an application for
site certification with the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection on Dec. 22. A copy of
our application is available for
review locally in the public
libraries in Moore Haven,
Clewiston and Labelle. The
Power Plant Siting Act in Florida
provides numerous opportuni-
ties for the public to comment
on the application in local public
meetings and hearings. Glades
County is currently planning a
community information meet-
ing in conjunction with the state
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) in February at
the Doyle Conner Center in


Moore Haven. When the date is
confirmed, a public meeting
notice will run in local papers.
Following agency review of
the application, the state DEP
will also hold a public hearing
overseen by an administrative
law judge in Glades County to
take public comment on all
aspects of the project.
In addition to the many gov-
ernmental and regulatory
reviews, we conduct an exten-
sive outreach effort to share
information with the community
about the project and listen to
citizens' interests. We have met
with dozens of local organiza-
tions and continue to seek
opportunities to meet with
groups and individuals to dis-
cuss their particular interests.
We believe an open: and
meaningful dialogue is essential
to a thorough review and
encourage public participation
in the process, both in informa-
tional meetings and public hear-
ings.
Sincerely,
GroverWhidden
Area External Affairs Manager
Florida Power &
Light Company


Clean air mercury rules

challenged in higher court


WASHINGTON, DC Four
leading medical and health care
groups will continue their legal
challenge of three clean air mer-
cury rules from the U.S. Environ-
mental Protection Agency (EPA)
by filing a brief no later than Jan.
26, in a lawsuit now assigned to
the DC Circuit Court. The groups
will ask the court to overturn the
weak EPA rules, which threaten
public health. The organizations,
representing more than 300,000
health professionals, are the
American Academy of Pediatrics
(AAP), American Nurses Associ-
ation (ANA), American Public
Health Association (APHA) and
Physicians for Social Responsibil-
ity (PSR).
Many Americans are exposed
to unsafe levels of methyl mercu-
ry from environmental sources,
including power plant emissions.
Methyl mercury emissions from
coal-fired power plants make up
more than 40 percent of all such
emissions into the U.S. environ-
ment, making power plants the
single largest source of uncon-
trolled mercury pollution in the
United States.
"Methyl mercury is extremely
harmful to a child's brain, capa-
ble of producing permanent neu-
rodevelopmental injury," said
Michael Shannon, MD, MPH,
chair of the AAP Committee on


Environmental Health.
"Methyl mercury poses seri-
ous health risks to both young
and old alike," said APHA Execu-
tive Director peorges C. Ben-
jamin MD, FACP. "But the risks
are disproportionately greater for
minorities and people living in
underserved communities who
are more likely to live in potential
toxic hot spots and are at greater
risk of exposure."
The Clean Air Act requires the
EPA to make public health its first
and only priority, and the law
mandates that these plants
reduce their mercury pollution
by up to 90 percent of current
emission levels by 2008.
Unfortunately, the EPA's final
mercury rule delays significant
mercury reductions for 10 to 15
years longer than the federal
Clean Air Act requires. The rule
substitutes an inappropriate
"cap-and-trade" scheme for
strong technology-based pollu-
tion control standards. This pro-
posed trading scheme fails to
protect individual communities
with toxic mercury 'hot spots,'
local areas of higher mercury
concentrations that can result in
dangerous levels of human expo-
sure. In fact, a "cap-and-trade"
scheme could worsen 'hot spots'
because certain facilities could
emit more mercury.

Guest Commentary



Coal Fired Power Plant in Glades County


By Tracy Whirls
Executive Director Glades County
Economic Development Council
A thorough and objective public
opinion poll following the Open
Houses reveals more than 80 per-
cent of the residents in Glades and
Hendry counties support the FPL
Glades Power Park, despite Fran
Koebert's remarks in a recent
Newszap blog and a misinforma-
tion campaign that has been
launched by environmentalist
who would oppose any kind of
power generating project in Flori-
da.
I applaud the recommendation
that folks should get the facts
before forming a conclusion on the
project.
We will be conducting an email
poll of the 175+ area residents
who regularly receive the EDC
monthly e-newsletter and we hope
to encourage folks to pass it on to
their correspondents so we can get
an accurate assessment of how
locals feel about the project.
As someone who was briefed
early on, I can only say that a multi-
tude of Glades County community
and business leaders were briefed
prior to the siting announcement
Sept. 12 and that FPL has made
every effort to inform virtually every
man, woman and child in Glades
and Hendry County since then and
will continue to conduct outreach
meetings with various stakeholders
as the process continues.
I do not characterize the com-
mission's approval of a resolution
supporting the project as rash. I call
that leadership. We were told early
on that the advanced technology
coal plant will conservatively pro-
duce 30 percent less emissions
than allowed by Florida DEP stan-


dards and according to the site
application filed with DEP, under
oath, the plant will be even cleaner
than we anticipated. Furthermore,
the plant is designed to be readily
modified to incorporate future safe-
guards as environmental technolo-
gies advance.
There was no impropriety in the
submission of the site plan/applica-
tion. The comprehensive plan
amendment that allows for utility
plants to be sited in an area zoned
agriculture open use was approved
by the Department of Community
Affairs as part of a comprehensive
plan amendment requested by
Lykes beginning back in 2002, to
provide utilities for West Glades
Elementary and the future/pro-
posed Muse Rural Village. That
approval left the site application
submittal at the staff level and Mr.
Hilton was well within his rights to
approve it as it was consistent with
the comprehensive plan provi-
sions. According to Planning and
Zoning Commission Chairman
Danenhauer, at no time was any-
thing regarding the Glades Power
Park submitted to the planning
commission.
County commissioners
approved a resolution voicing sup-
port of the project Sept. 12. It must
still go through a series of public
hearings and agency reviews
before it is finally approved by the
Governor and his cabinet. There
will be ample time for people to
ask questions and get any informa-
tion theywant.
Everyone agrees we should
carefully manage our environment.
Most of us believe that a project
which will eliminate 90 percent of
emissions as designed, with the
ability to add additional safeguards


as they become available commer-
cially, is a good project, particularly
when it allows us to be more
choosey about future development
because of the tax revenue pro-
duced. The FPL Glades Power Park,
when built, will set a standard for
coal-fired plants nationwide, with
technology which has heretofore
only been used in Germany and
Japan, which may lead to upgrades
of existing plants elsewhere with
the resultant beneficial environ-
mental impacts.
While I'm always pleased when
people do their homework, I
would caution Fran and other read-
ers to be careful when researching
the subject on the internet, as there
is a great deal of misinformation
out there. My office will do every-
thing it can to make information
available to stakeholders interested
in the project.
It is true that it is projected that
the FPL Glades Power Park will
generate $21 million dollars in tax
revenue, on average, throughout
the 40-year life expectancy of the
plant. That's on average: some
years it may be expected to gener-
ate more, some less based on the
millage rate at the time. This means
FPL would only get a tax break
were the county to reduce millage
below the existing 10 mil rate,
which means that all Glades Coun-
ty property tax payers would enjoy
a similar benefit. As to deprecia-
tion, anyone who's ever bought a
new car understands the concept
of depreciation. I will only say that
the Board of County Commission-
ers is well aware of the potential
consequences of either millage
reduction or other impacts on tax
revenue and will base future deci-
sions on that knowledge.


I will leave the discussion of
emissions to the experts.
It is certainly true that econom-
ics is the driving force for having a
power plant. I can tell you that
every previous economic develop-
ment study done of this area has
asserted that siting a power plant in
the area would have a tremendous
and positive economic impact;
that's why residents of the city of
Belle Glade were devastated when
the proposed El Paso generating
plant project died in 2001 or 2002.
To my mind, the big question
the residents of Glades County
must decide is do the economic
benefits of the project outweigh the
arguably negligible environmental
impacts associated with the proj-
ect? Because Mr. Koebert is certain-
ly right: there will be more power
plants built not only in Florida but
all over the world and I think it
would be avery sad day for Glades
County if this project were to ulti-
mately site in a neighboring county
because of the outcry from some
well meaning but largely unin-
formed constituents.
It is true that our government is
encouraging a coal-powered plant
for diversity. That discussion
reached critical levels when Florida
utilities found themselves within
days of facing rolling blackouts
when Hurricane Katrina disrupted
the natural gas pipelines that carry
natural gas into the state of Florida
from the gulf. And as FPL has
already said the plant can be readily
modified as "the new technologies
for pollution control that are dis-
covered every day are incorporated
into the new power plant as they
are discovered," to quote Mr. Koe-
bert, it is indeed, as he says, "a win-
win situation."


Church of Good Shepherd's lesson on Islam


Local church
provides answers

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
Now in this 21st century, while
the word Islam is not common in
everyday language and living, it is
well known.
Islam is the religion taught by
the Prophet Mohammed in the
A.D. 600s. Few who are not of the
Islam belief know what it is, and,
more importantly, what it is not.
Mohammed, an Arab, was born
in Mecca in A.D. 570. Mohammed
believed that he had been sent to
destroy the idols of the heathen
Arabs and to teach them to wor-
ship God.
He preached that there was only
one God, and that was Allah, and


that he, Mohammed, was the mes-
senger of Allah. Those who believe
in the one God and accept
Mohammed as his messenger are
called Moslems which is from the
Arabic meaning "those who sub-
mitto God."
The word Islam is an Arabic
word meaning submission. Some
people, especially Westerners, par-
ticularly some in the United States,
call the religion of Islam
Mohammedanism and those who
followiit are called Mohammedans.
Moslems object to these names
because they feel that such terms
give the incorrect impression that
Moslems worship Mohammed.
The second largest religion in
the world today, Islam has more
than 1.7 billion followers. The
largest Moslem communities exist
in the Middle East, North Africa,
Pakistan, Albania, and the Bosnia-
Hercegovina region of the former
Yugoslavia.


The once-great Moslem empire
no longer exists; however Moslems
are still united by the faith of Islam,
which forms a common bond of
culture among them.
And so what does all this have
to do with the Hendry-Glades
communities? Just this: learning
to appreciate what others
believe enhances and strength-
ens our own faith and belief in
our personal lives.
According to the teachings of
Islam, the companions of
Mohammed first wrote down his
teachings on any material they
could find. Later they combined
these writings to form the holy
book of the Moslems, called the
Koran, from the Arabic word
meaning the reading. Members
are expected to memorize as
much of the Koran as they can.
Those who memorize all of it are
greatly honored.
Parts of the Koran resemble the


Bible, the Apocrypha and the Jew-
ish Talmud. The Koran contains
many of the same stories about the
prophets that appear in the Old Tes-
tament. It also has stories from the
New Testament about Jesus, called
the spirit of God.
In the Call to Prayer, repeated
five times a day, a muezzin reminds
devout Moslems to pray, saying
"Prayer is better than sleep."
In order to learn about the Islam
religion, the>Church 'of:the G6o'
Shepherd will host a series. of.pso.
grams on this subject beginning
Jan. 21 at 8:40 am.
The Rev. Alan H Kelmereit, Vicar
of the church, will conduct the
classes at the church at 1098
Collingswood Parkway, Labelle.
' Everyone of any denomination is
invited to attend.
For more information please
call the church at (863) 675-0385.

Question: Dear Doc Savvy.
Hello, my name is Jaime and I
am thinking of becoming a vet-
erinary assistant. I am looking
into a program which starts in
the spring. I love working with
animals, but only have a small
amount of experience working
with a dog groomer in
Greenacres. Can you tell me a lit-
tle bit more about what a veteri-
nary assistant does?
'Thankyou.
Answer: Hey Jaime, I would
be happy to tell you more about
being a veterinary assistant, after
all I was one for several years
before I went off to veterinary col-
lege. Even better would be to let
one of my assistants answer this
question for you. This way you
can get first hand information.
Allow me to introduce Miss
Stephanie Kirchman. Stephanie
has been working with me since
she was about 13 years old. She
is now 18 and will be graduating
first in her class this year at
Pahokee High School. Stephanie
is an amazing young woman
with many hobbies and talents.
She is planning to attend the
University of Florida this Fall on
her way to becoming a veteri-
narian.
So here's Stephanie...
Being a veterinarian assistant
is an awesome job. Everyday, I
get to help with surgeries that
vary from doing dentals on dogs
to even doing a necropsy
(autopsy for animals). I mean
how cool is it to cut a dog open
and explorehis insides.,Just the
other day, Iigot the chance to do
a necropsy in which we discov-
ered an enlarged heart with thin
muscle lining.
My occupation requires many
responsibilities. You have to
make sure all the animals are
taken care of meaning that they
are clean, have food, have had
their medications, and have


Doc Savvy
good vital signs if they are under-
going surgery or are ill. I have to
make sure there are always ster-
ile tools and other necessities on
hand for surgeries, and prepare
the animal and the room for the
surgery as well. Knowledge
either from experience or book
is also required as a veterinarian
assistant. If the veterinarian asks
for injections you need to know
where they are and how to
administer them to the animal.
You also need to know how to
measure for, take, and develop
x-rays. The list could go on for-
ever of the numerous tasks I do
as a veterinarian assistant. I love
my job because you never know
what treatments or cool surger-
ies the next day will bring. As far
as what to expect; you could be
doing jobs from desk work to
cleaning up poop. Yes, there are
times when you will come home
wondering what that dark stain
is on your scrub, but it washes
off every time.
Take care Jaime. I hope that
helps answer your questions.

Kirchman

Opal was a wood stop on the railroad


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
OKEECHOBEE "Opal was
a stop on the East Coast Railroad
where the old wood-fired steam
engines used to stop to pick up
fuel to continue their run down
to Okeechobee," said Sonny
Williamson. "The next stop
north would have been Hilolo,
that's what it was called."
"This, the central road on
Williamson Cattle Company is
also the old Florida East Coast
Railroad right of way grade
where the tracks used to lie.
That's why it sits high.
"I remember sometime in the
1940s there was a "section
house" for the railroad here.
They were all the same and one
thing about them where the
rafters ended, the ends were cut
decoratively, with a curve instead
of just coming to a square cor-
ner.
"Now there was a "flowing
well" at Opal. A flowing well is
an artesian well that just flows up
and out of the ground all the
time. The trains would need
water as well as wood. I remem-
ber the water was brought over
in a "pipe" made of four cypress
boards and when they got wet
and the wood swelled, it was
water tight. I wish we'd saved
some of that old stuff.
"Well, there was a turpentine
camp here. The turpentine com-
pany built houses for the people
who worked it. They brought the
people, supplies wagons and
mules down by rail to work the
business.
"A lot of industries didn't start
until the railroads came. That
was around 1914. The railroads
made it possible to ship fish, tim-
ber and turpentine, so those
industries developed then.
All of this country had pines,
unlike the north part of Okee-
chobee County where it turns
into prairie.
"If you look hard in through
the palmettos here, you can find
old bricks. The chimneys of these
turpentine houses were always
made of brick and we've found
old bottles and such here.
"The pine trees would be cut,
downwards, lengthwise to
release the pine sap or resin they
made the turpentine from. When
you know what to look for, you
can tell the old trees that had
been cut that way even today.
"They called the place where
they cut the pine tree a "cat face"
because that is what it looked
like two gashes cut into each
other on an angle. Then, they
would fit metal pieces, like
troughs along the gashes to
guide the resin into a metal cup
at the bottom. The workers
would go around with a mule-
drawn wagon carrying a 55 gal-
lon drum and empty the cups of
resin into the drum.

Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


"There used to be a county
road that came out here from
town, too. It ran along the rail-
road. People came out from
town and planted citrus groves
here. Judge Henry Hancock first
settled at Opal and he planted a
grove here before he moved in
town to present-day Okee-
chobee where he built his home
on the east side of the old Taylor
Creek, according to Twila Valen-
tine, a local historian who wrote
extensively for the Okeechobee
News. I think the chimney of the
Walker plane is standing.
"The county road came up
from town, ran by the old ceme-
tery, crossed Cemetery Road
then on up here. People came up
here and planted citrus. Peter
Raulerson's trees are still bearing
fruit; tangerines, oranges and
grapefruit all still bearing since
he planted them and we've had
them ourselves for 60 years.
(Peter and Louisiana Raulerson
moved to Okeechobee from
Basinger in 1896.)
In a story in the Okeechobee
News, the late Thelma Holmes
Walker, recalled a picnic out at
Opal one time during an inter-
view by Twila Valetnine.
"There was a Sunday school
picnic out at Opal one time and
there was an orange grove out
there. Merle Lamb was with us.
We had fixed sandwiches and


Many of Peter Raulerson's citrus trees still bear under the
care of the Williamsons who now own the property.

Found easily a January Jewel


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
This flower is a jewel that does
not usually show itself until Febru-
ary. Not so, however,in this year of
balmy winter days and showers
that feel more like April.
Black Haw (Viburnum abova-
tum Walter) is one of the more
common Haws growing in ham-
mocks, thickets, and swampy mar-
gins in almost all sections of Florida
as well as along the coast all the
way northward to South Carolina.
Although Black Haw is one of
the more common Haws, native to
Florida, few people know or appre-
ciate its beauty and the fact that it
requires nothing from them except
admiration and appreciation. Fur-
thermore, it grows in poor soil as
well as peaty rich soil. It loves sun-
shine but does well in partial sun
and shade, but not in total shade.
Black Haw grows as a shrub or
a small multi-branched tree. The
limbs on which the small nosegay
clusters are borne are not a bit
graceful, they are simply straight
and stiff with numbers of little
nosegays up and down the stem.
Most of the time, the end of the
stem or branch will boast the
largest nosegay, oftentimes two or
even three.
The obovate leaves are rather
hard, small, slick, and shiny. The
round cluster-nosegays range from
about an inch wide to one and a
half inches. The tiny flowers that
make up these clusters are very
small, scarcely a quarter inch in
diameter. Each cluster boasts as
many as 25 little five-petal flowers
-some more some less.
The first time I saw Black Haw I
could not help but think of a late,
wet snow in Virginia when the
snowflakes were about the size of
cornflakes. They floated from the
sky and seemed to catch onto or sit
on every limb or twig in sight, and
that's just what that bush-like tree


'Employee of the year'

resembled. Even now these years
later, in early January, I go looking
for that same Black Haw and it
always looks the same.
A couple years ago while driving
west on Route 80, I suddenly saw a
new store with equally new land-
scaping around the parking area
between the store and the high-
way. I pulled in thinking that
can't be what it looks like. But it
was. Black Haw. The bushes were
planted close together and clipped
square. The few little nosegays that
managed to bloom were clipped
right along with the rest of the
plant. In absolute disgust I drove
away, knowing that those plants
would never live and grow as they
were meant to being exposed to
endless exhaust fumes of traffic not
even ten feet from them.
After that, every time I traveled


that road I could not help but look
at those plants.
It was not long before the
foliage starting browning and more
than half the leaves had dropped.
Before the year was out, they were
dug out and replaced with
privet hedge which can grow
almost anywhere.
Native plants need their native
habitat and most of them cannot
survive without it.
Yet, too many in the landscape
business pay no attention to the
needs of the plants themselves.
Another shameful example is
to see the Florida native dahoon
holly (Ilex cassine) planted in
medians in many cities. Here
again exhaust fumes from auto-
mobiles simply "cook" the foliage
which in time starves the plants
which need wet marginal land,


swamps, stream banks and clean
air. The dahoons can tolerate
some dry conditions but must
have some watering and can be
considered as a small scale tree
for residential planting. Its growth
is slow. When planted with care,
dahoon holly transplants well, and
is long-lived. Collecting Dahoon
hollies is restricted in Florida.
The dahoon holly berries are
brilliant red The plant is evergreen
here in South Florida.
Ultimately, the tree will attain a
size of 40 feet by 18 feet.
When in doubt about native
and non-native plant material, con-
tact the nearest Florida Extension
Agent. After all, what we don't
know about the plants we use can
hurt them and us in wasted time,
energy and money.


Orchid group forming in Okeechobee


By Dan Culbert
UF/IFAS Extension
Horticulture Agent
When I began my work as the
horticultural Agent here in Okee-
chobee, I was amazed to find that
there were no local groups dedicat-
ed to the greener pursuits of life.
Rumors persisted That there once
w as a Garden Club in toni, but I've
not found out much about this
organization, what they did, or why
they are not around any more.
It's been one of my goals to help
local plant lovers get together and
enjoy the pleasures of plants.
Thanks to a recent visit by a nurs-
eryman who has been transplant-
ed from Stuart, Okeechobee may
soon break this drought and get an
Orchid group started.
Why orchids?
Orchids are exotic symbols of
tropical allure and are thought to
have an incredible amount of
beauty and mystery that surrounds
them. Those with green thumbs
will either love them, or not, based
on their ability to provide the neces-
sary growing conditions that can
allow them to produce their
enchanting floral displays.
These plants display an unlimit-
ed range of colors and forms, from
the flamboyant Cattleya that is pop-
ular in corsages, to native Butterfly
orchids found in local hammocks.
Gardeners may enjoy growing
many orchid species and hybrids.
Many of these plants growwell and
flower profusely with a minimum
of care under Florida's conditions.
Contrary to common belief,
these plants may be purchased at
prices comparable to other flower-
ing pot plants. When a few basic
cultural requirements are met, any
orchid will satisfy the owner for
manyyears.
And for those interested in
another kind of green, please note


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
that there is a thriving commercial
orchid industry in Florida.
Statewide production has risen
steadily, with over 6.5 million plants
being sold in 2004.
Which orchids to grow
One of the more difficult deci-
sions facing new orchid fanciers is
which of the thousands of com-
mercially available species and
hybrids should they grow. To
answer this question several factors
must be considered, including: (1)
How much time do you want to
spend? (2) How much money is
available? (3) Do you have a hobby
greenhouse? and (4) Do you have a
suitable growing area? Species and
hybrids of six orchid types are
widely recommended to home-
owners because of their adaptabili-
ty, ease of growing, and beautiful
flowers: Cattleya, Phalaenopsis,
Dendrobium, Oncidium, Vanda
and Epidendrum. These are the
most common and can be grown
successfully in Florida, but they rep-
resent only a minority of orchid
genera available.
Basic orchid
growing tips
Florida gardeners have a num-
ber of choices on how their orchids
should be grown. Traditionally,
plants were grown in osmunda
fiber in clay pots.
Other media such as chopped
tree fern fiber, certain bark materi-
als, porous volcanic stone, peat,
charcoal and combinations of
these materials are now used. Plas-
tic pots and other containers have
replaced clay in many cases.


Repotting is perhaps the least
enjoyed chore in the orchid hobby.
As a general rule, popular orchids
need to be repotted every two to
three years. Repotting can be done
by transplanting to a larger pot, or
by division. Knowing when and,
how to repot will be shown at
future meetings of this orchid
group.
Fertilization is a controversial
issue among orchid growers. Many
debate the merits of inorganic and
organic fertilizers and some even
question the need for fertilizer.
However, most growers use fertiliz-
er and obtain excellent results.
Rates and kinds of fertilizers
depend on the kind of plant and
type of growing media used.
How often should orchids be
watered? This is a common ques-
tion to which there is no one set
answer. As a general rule, orchids
in small pots dry more rapidly and
require watering more frequently.
Plants grown in porous clay,pots
should receive water more often
than those grown in plastic pots.
When watering, saturate each pot
so that moisture drains from the
bottom of the pot then don't
water again until the surface of the
medium becomes dry.
Most orchids require partial
shade for optimum growth and
flowering. High light intensities
degrade chlorophyll causing the
foliage to yellow, and frequently
may burn the leaves. Orchids need
to be protected from cold tempera-
tures. Generally 50 degrees F is the
minimum temperature that tropi-
cal orchids can handle without
cold damage. However, if orchids
are exposed to too much heat (2
hours above 110 degrees F or 10
minutes above 120 degrees F), the
leaves and flowers will burn.
There's lots to learn and much
more to share with this fascinating
group of plants. I hope to see you
Tuesday night at 7 p.m. here at our

Manatee hurts spur Operation Mermaid


Operation Mermaid got its
name from the popular theory
that ancient mariners who wrote
about mermaids actually saw
manatees. Jan. 13-15 in 11 coun-
ties, more than 40 federal, state
and local law enforcement agen-
cies along with officers from the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC),
patrolled the water as part of
Operation Mermaid to remind
boaters to slow down for migrat-
ing manatees.
Officers on more than 140
patrol boats talked to more than
5,000 boaters on approximately
1,700 boats in Indian River, St.


Lucie, Martin, Palm Beach,
Broward, Miami-Dade, Monroe,
Lee, Charlotte, Citrus and Bre-
vard counties during the 3-day
holiday weekend.
Officers from 43 agencies
wrote at least 377 boating cita-
tions, criminally charged 19 peo-
ple and gave warnings to 757
people. A handful of agencies
have not reported their statistics.
While most citations were for
manatee zone violations, boat-

Horse virus outbreak


Florida farmers shine at annual meeting


under cont

TALLAHASSEE Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Services
Commissioner Charles H. Bron-
son on Tuesday said he is confi-
dent that the outbreak of Equine
Herpesvirus-type 1, or EHV-1, has
been brought under control. It
has been more than three weeks
since any horse has tested positive
for the virus and the last quaran-
tine was lifted over the weekend.
"I credit the cooperation and
proactive steps taken by the
equine community and the quick
response by the Department's
Division of Animal Industry with
the end of this outbreak," Mr.
Bronson said. "Identification of
infected and exposed horses,
implementation of biosecurity
measures and other proactive
measures taken by horse owners
prevented further spread of this
disease."
While some industry locations
instituted voluntary decontamina-
tion measures and restricted
horse movements, protocol
required the state to place 10 loca-
tions under mandated quarantine
including sites in Wellington,
Jupiter, Indiantown, Morriston,
Loxahatchee and Ocala. Last
week, after lab test results con-
firmed there had been no new
case in three weeks, all but one of


rol

the quarantines were lifted. The
final quarantine was lifted over
the weekend when all lab results
were negative.
The outbreak started when
horses imported from Europe
through a federal quarantine site
in New York were brought to
Wellington in late November.
One of those horses was infected
with the virus, which spread to
other horses early in the outbreak
through close contact before
movement restrictions were in
place. The Department's Division
of Animal Industry then set up an
incident command post in Palm
Beach County to oversee control
efforts, educate the community
and monitor the situation. Six
horses succumbed to the disease
and 12 others recovered with
treatment.
"It is extremely tragic that we
lost six horses," Bronson said.
"But the situation could have
been far more deadly were it not
for the quick actions of so many
people."
EHV-1 is a contagious virus of
horses that can cause respiratory
disease, abortion and occasional-
ly serious neurological signs. It is
spread through the air but can
also be carried on shoes, clothes,
hands and equipment.


GAINESVILLE Florida
Farm Bureau Federation (FFBF)
President John Hoblick of Volu-
sia County has been elected to
the board of directors for the
American Farm Bureau Federa-
tion. He was elected during the
AFBF annual meeting last week
in Salt Lake City. AFBF is the
nation's largest agricultural
membership organization, with
over six million family members.
Delegates adopted several
polices in line with Florida Farm
Bureau's recommendations.
The 366 delegates from across
the United States voted over-
whelmingly in support of com-
prehensive immigration reform
that improves farmers' timely
access to legal farm workers.
Another Florida Farm Bureau
priority that was included was
the addition of specialty crops in
the 2007 farm bill. Delegates
were in favor FFBF's resolution
for the exclusion of pests and
disease through the implemen-
tation of better inspection of
imports and cooperation
between the Department of
Homeland Security and USDA
Animal and Plant Health Inspec-
tion Service. AFBF also adopted
the citrus canker policy recom-
mended by Farm Bureau mem-
bers. This policy supports the


development and implementa-
tion of a formal plan such as the
Florida Citrus Health Response
Plan that helps growers manage
and control the spread of citrus
pests and diseases.
Florida Farm Bureau had
more than 100 members attend-
ing this year's national confer-
ence. Those attending witnessed
several accomplishments by
individuals, counties and the
state organization.
Ginny Paarlberg of Lee, Fla.
was elected to the Women's
Leadership Committee of the
American Farm Bureau Federa-
tion. Paarlberg is chair of Florida
Farm Bureau's Women's Leader-
ship Committee.
Steve and Andrea Johnson of
Bowling Green, Fla. were
named runners-up in the Ameri-
can Farm Bureau Achievement
Award Competition, placing
them among the top five young
farmers in the nation. The
Achievement Award recognizes
young farmers and ranchers
who have excelled in their farm-
ing or ranching operations and
exhibited superior leadership
abilities. Participants are evalu-
ated on a combination of their
agricultural operation's growth
and financial progress, Farm
Bureau leadership and leader-


ship outside Farm Bureau.
Florida Farm Bureau was also
recognized with four Awards for
Excellence, which are presented
to state Farm Bureaus that have
demonstrated outstanding
achievements in meeting their
members' needs. Florida was
recognized in the areas of Edu-
cation and Agricultural Promo-
tion, Leadership Development,
Member Services and Public
Relations and Information.
During the convention, Carl
B. Loop, Jr., who for 23 years
was president of the Florida
Farm Bureau, was honored for
his service to national agricul-
ture issues and to the American
Farm Bureau Federation. Mr.
Loop was honored during the
general session on Jan. 7. He'
had served on the AFBF board
for two decades and was vice
president for six years.
Two County Farm Bureaus
from Florida were among 15 rec-
ognized by the American Farm
Bureau Federation through the
County Activities of Excellence
(CAE) program for outstanding
county Farm Bureau programs
and initiatives. Programs devel-
oped by the Escambia and Hills-
borough county Farm Bureaus
were on display at the 2007
AFBF Annual The selections


were based on content, benefit
to Farm Bureau members, inno-
vation and results.
Thirteen Florida Farm Bureau
members were named to AFBF
Commodity Advisory Commit-
tees during the convention.
Those named were Ralph Garri-
son of Manatee County, nursery
and greenhouse; Daniel
Leonard of Desoto County,
Aquaculture; Brad Etheridge of
Levy County, beef cattle; Brant
Schirard, Jr. of St. Lucie County
and Mason Smoak of Highlands
County, citrus; Jeffrey Pittman of
Jackson County, cotton; Bill
Benham of Lake County, equine;
Stephen Basford of Jackson
County, hay and forage; Steve
Cantu of Hardee County, honey;
Roland Yee of Palm Beach Coun-
ty, horticulture; J. Daniel Peter-
son of Volusia County, labor;
Jerry Davis of Santa Rosa Coun-
ty, peanut and Mark Sodders of
Palm Beach County, sugar.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gen-
eral agricultural association with
more than 144,000 member-
families statewide. Headquar-
tered in Gainesville, the Federa-
tion is an independent,
non-profit agricultural organiza-
tion and is not associated with
any arm of the government.


Florida citrus makes up for California loss


LAKELAND Despite the
severe freeze that has claimed
the majority of the California cit-
rus crop, there still should be
enough fresh citrus on produce
shelves for Americans this win-
ter and spring. That's because
Florida citrus, which has suf-
fered its own share of cata-
strophic freezes, as well as hurri-
canes, in the recent past, has
dodged a bullet this year and
seen its oranges, grapefruit and
tangerines rebound.
The natural disaster that has


befallen the California crop has
drawn the genuine empathy of
Florida growers.
"Traditionally, Florida is at the
mercy of Mother Nature's
freezes and hurricanes," said
Michael W. Sparks, Executive
Vice President/CEO of Florida
Citrus Mutual. "This past year,
we've had a breather, so we're in
a position to help fill the vacuum
that will be created by the
absence of California citrus."
While more than 90 percent of
Florida's orange crop is harvested


into juice, a similar percentage of
California's oranges are sold as
fresh eating fruit. The 2006-07
Florida crop should help bridge
the gap, according to Sparks, as it
is maturing with excellent quality
and good appearance. Many
Florida pineapple oranges, valen-
cias, temples and honey tanger-
ines still remain on the trees to be
harvested.
"Americans still will be able to
enjoy their citrus and get their
delicious daily snack filled with
vitamin C, folate, potassium and


fiber," Sparks said.
The Florida citrus industry
has a $9 billion economic
impact on the state, employs
nearly 90,000 people and covers
more than 620,000 acres. The
California citrus industry has a
$500 million farm gate value and
covers more than 110,000 acres.
Florida Citrus Mutual, founded
in 1948, is the state's largest citrus
grower's organization with more
than 10,000 grower members.

Local residents comment on FPEs power plant


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Last Sep-
tember county commissioners
announced that Florida Power &
Light proposed to build a $3 bil-
lion power plant about five miles
northwest of Moore Haven.
Since then, residents have dis-
cussed and read about the jobs
and tax benefits that could result
from its construction and main-
tenance. They have also heard
from residents and non-resi-
dents who oppose its proposed
location near Lake Okeechobee.
The result is a mixture of feel-
ings that residents have for the
plant.
John H. Smith is a produce
vendor who is set up for busi-
ness at the intersection of U.S. 27
and 10th Street. His father-in-law
helps him.
Both of them have lived in the
Glades area for a long time. Mr.

law is on the left. They have worked here for many years. Mr.
Smith approves of the proposed power plant.


Haven to sell. About the plant,
he said, "I think it is a good thing.
It can bring jobs and will help
out with taxes. To me it's fine."
There are others who don't


know enough about the propos-
al to form an opinion.
A working mom, who runs a
business in town, had com-
ments too; but she asked to


image of vacant buildings.
R.G. Orman's scope of service
is to assist the city to secure grants
for the purpose of community
planning and development, to pre-
pare a new base map for the city
showing both future land use and
existing zoning.
Mr. Orman will also prepare a
vision statement and a graphic
showing a revised landscape plan
for U.S. 27 and the bridge.


City Mayor Bret Whidden asked
that Dr. Orman frequently attend
meetings and inform the council
on the status of projects and
expenses.
R.G. Orman replied that he will
return to the city on Jan. 22 in order
to attend city-county workshops
and stay abreast on local issues as
they affect his work.

remain anonymous. She frankly
said, "I haven't heard much
about the power plant. I want to
know more about it."
Perhaps the biggest criticism
about the plant is the possibility
that mercury pollution from the
plant will contaminate the area.
Lisa Langdale is a descendant
of old-time Floridians. It is easy
to see that she loves her home-
land. She replied, "There are
people here who need jobs and
want the plant. It can open
doors, and our children can
graduate from college and stay
in Moore Haven for a job."
At Mickey's Bait & Tackle,
hopeful fishermen were decid-
ing on what kind of bait or lure
to use in the afternoon and early
evening. Most of them were
eager to return to their favorite
spot.
On his way out, one of them
said, "I'm for it. Smart people are
for it."
The owner of the bait and
tackle shop is David Dannen-
hauer.


Expo

Continued From Page 1
"The 2007 Glades-Hendry Job
and Career Expo will be the first step
in helping to match students and
other job seekers with entry level as
well as upper level employment
opportunities in their chosen field,
as well as education and training
opportunities to help them find the
job of their dreams," Ms. Whirls
said, adding that in addition to com-
panies and agencies, such as South
Florida Water Management District,
vocational schools like the Educa-
tion Center of Southwest Florida,
and colleges, including Palm Beach
Community College and Florida
Gulf Coast University, are expected
to on hand for the event.
While specifically targeting
young adults, the job fair is open to
anyone interested in seeking full
time employment or training.
Spanish language translators will
be on site, and Workforce Council
staff will provide assistance with
resume preparation and other
work ready programs.
Sponsors are also being sought
to defray the costs associated with
organizing the event, purchasing
door prizes and promoting the
event. Sponsors will be recognized
in pre-event publicity and in a
power point program on display
throughout the Expo.

"I think it is a great thing and
good for the economy and jobs,"
said Mr. Dannenhauer. "We
need something extra. In the
past several years agriculture has
been in decline and diversifica-
tion is always a good thing.'
Mr. Dannenhauer mentioned
that coal was preferable to
importing oil and natural gas
from foreign nations, and that
coal was a better choice than
nuclear energy.
Very few residents, expressed
complete reservations about the
concept and its effect on the
environment.
A number of environmental
groups, however, are pushing to
keep the power plant away from
Glades County, pointing to what

they say is the damage that such
a plant would have on the coun-

Florida Power and Light,
meanwhile, contends that their

utilize newer methods to keep
high levels of mercury and other
pollutants from contaminating
the area.

Bell history
Members of the church are
still accepting donations
for the completion of this
project, which will be great-
ly appreciated. The church
members are also working
on a plaque to be placed on
the bell tower and would
like to have any information
that may be available about
the history of this bell.
Please contact C.S. Martin
if you have any that you
would like to share. We
construct this bell tower to
the glory of God.


New bell tower


INI/Ideybis Gonzalez
What a great day for Community Presbyterian Church in
Clewiston when the bell was placed on the new bell tower
on Friday, Jan. 12. This project has been ongoing for some
time and we are very happy that the completion date is get-
ting closer.


The work is being done by Antonio Jebianm Contractor and
Justavo Bolado of the Construkom USA Corporation (on
the job engineer) from Miami. They are interested in our
community and wanted to be a part of building this for our
church. At the completion of the bell tower, the church
plans to have a big homecoming celebration barbecue and
dedication for our church and the community. A time will be
announced at a later date.

Bishop will retire after 23 years


Submitted photo/Diocese of Venice
Bishop John J. Nevins, the
first bishop of the Diocese of
Venice, retires after 22 years
of leadership.


By MaryAnn Morris
INI FLORIDA
VENICE, Fla. The Catholic
Diocese of Venice was created in
1984 from portions of the Arch-
diocese of Miami and the dioce-
ses of Orlando and St. Peters-
burg.
The diocese is extensive. It
includes the counties of Mana-
tee, Sarasota, Charlotte, Lee,
DeSoto, and Hardee, formerly in
the Diocese of St. Petersburg;
Highlands County, formerly in
the Diocese of Orlando; Collier,
Hendry, and Glades counties,
formerly part of the Archdiocese
of Miami. It is a 9,035 square


mile area of southwest Florida
and has a Catholic population of
about 233,000 in a total popula-
tion of 1.8 million, according to
United States conference of
Catholic Bishops.
John Nevins was appointed
bishop of this diocese from the
beginning. For the past 23 years
he has guided its diverse popula-
tion's spiritual life and fought for
the basic human rights of its
poorest people, the migrant
farmworkers.
Almost immediately after
being named bishop, he turned
attention to forming a Catholic
Charities organization. Docu-
ments were filed with the Secre-


tary of State on Dec. 18, 1984,
less than two months after the
diocese was established. The
corporation, Catholic Charities,
Diocese of Venice, Inc. was certi-
fied as a non-profit, charitable,
benevolent body within the State
of Florida. According to their
Web site, Catholic Charities
served nearly 50,000 people in
the Diocese of Venice in 2005.
Now John Nevins, at age 75,
has given his resignation to Pope
Benedict as of Jan. 19, 2007.
This makes him Bishop Emer-
itus of the diocese and gives him
the freedom to spend more time
back in Ireland, where his moth-
er still lives.

Sometimes in life, it's necessary to 'Just Do It'


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I was asked to get our amplifi-
er repaired one day while serving
another Church. It has been
short-circuited by some workmen
who drove nails through the
speaker wires and caused the
amplifier to damage the output
transistors. I was feeling playful
when I took it to the repair shop
and the clerk asked me what was
wrong with it. I told her that the
smoke escaped and if her techni-
cian had a smoke injector, it
might work again.
She looked at me, standing
there with my black suit and col-
lar, with an expression on her face
that said, "dumb, dumb, dumb!"
Actually, I hold an amateur radio
license. The class of license I hold
requires passing a federal test and
demonstrating competency in
electronic theory; about a third of
the test I passed covered compe-
tencies held by the people that
repair radar sets, install commer-
cial broadcast stations, adjust tel-
evision transmitters and work on
satellites. The clerk decided to


humor me, smiled and said
"We'll see what we can do!" I had
given a theory about why the
amplifier didn't work that was
way off-base. There are many
times when
people see
things happen
and make con-
nections ."
between what .
they see, think- -
ing that one ...
causes the
other when it
may not be the SamuelS.
case. Smoke,
neither made Thomas
the amplifier work or caused it to
cease working; it just came along
when parts overheated. There
may be a connection even if we
don't know the reasons for it. I
heard many times growing up
"Wash your hands before dinner"
even if I didn't know the reasons
why. Every kid has heard that a
million times too. You just wash
your hands even if you don't
know about germ theory or
microbial transmission.
The admonition is so old, it's
Biblical. It seems that Jesus and


His disciples were asked "Why do
your disciples break bread in the
tradition of the elders? They don't
wash their hands before they eat
(Matthew 15:2)" Somehow, some
way, those who asked this ques-
tion (The Pharisees in this story)
knew you were supposed to
wash your hands before you ate
any meal and especially a sacred
meal in the tradition of the elders -
breaking bread together. They
knew nothing about germs or
viruses either, but the observa-
tions over centuries taught them
there was a connection between
washing up first and staying well.
So they did it; the explanation was
that somehow it's better for you,
so that must be what God wants -
and you do it! end of discussion.
Later, a more sophisticated expla-
nation would come forth with Lis-
ter and just what it is that makes
us sick. In the meantime, the
inherited practice of what worked
was enough. "Just do it!" Jesus
goes on to point out where His
critics also have their weak
points; jot just about being
"unclean" at the table but what
goes on in our hearts; real
uncleannesss" is related to doing


wrong and not just forgetting to
wash our hands. It was an intu-
itive sense of the need to wash
hands that protected people for
centuries before sterile wipes,
anti-bacterial soap and disinfec-
tant sprays. We've closed the gap
when it comes to knowing why
washing hands is good for us; we
haven't closed the gap when it
comes to knowing why we're
supposed to do other things that
are good for us too in a spiritual
realm. I'd venture to say that
nobody thinks much about the
ethics of safe driving, telling the
truth, not cheating on taxes,
returning something that was
found, working to honor vows,
and lots of other actions that
make people "unclean" when we
ignore to do them. The connec-
tions aren't as obvious but they
are there. Our ancestors, both
spiritual and genetic, knew wash-
ing our hands was good for us
long before the reasons were dis-
covered but they were protected
and healthy. They also knew
something about the spiritual
laws and how the world really
ran. We can learn from them;
they had good instincts.

WE'LL DOO ALL

YOUR DIRTY WORK


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
It's hard to believe that January
is about to come to an end. We
seem to have moved ceaselessly
from candlelight services to return
lines to noisemakers, parades,
marathons and bowl games to
year-end financial statements and
writing thank you notes as we
made our resolutions, probably not
expecting to keep them very long. I
don't think it officially ends until
after we have cleaned up from the
Super Bowl party. In the rush of this
season and new year it is easy to
miss the call of God to walk in the
light. No one wants to be in the
dark. The dark is a scary place. But
sometimes, if we are not careful,
we can find ourselves falling into
the darkness of complacency.
Tim Hansel, in his book,


"Holy Sweat", tells of a guest
preacher in a rather large church
who began, "There are three
points to my sermon."
Three point sermons were not
uncommon they'd heard them
many times before. But the preach-
er went on. "My first point is this. At
this time there are approximately
two billion people starving to death
in the world." The reaction through
the congregation. was about the
same.
They'd heard that sort of state-
ment many times before, too.
And then he said, "My second
point He paused, My second point
is that most of you don't give a
damn!" He paused again as gasps
and rumblings flowed across the
congregation.
The pastor continued, "And my
third point is that the real tragedy
among Christians today is that
many of you are now more con-


cerned that I said "damn" than
you are that I said two billion peo-
ple are starving to death." Then he
sat down.
The whole
sermon took
less than a
minute, but
what a sermon
itwas!
The preach-
er was remind-
ing us that we
are called not John
just to right- Hicks
eousness but to
genuine morality. We are called to
action, not just to spoken words. It
might do us well to ask ourselves
what we are most concerned with.
To have fellowship with God is
to walk in the light. Walking
denotes movement. It's hard to be
in settled in the darkness of com-
placency and walk with God, and


we can't walk in the shadows and
be with God. We have to walk in
the light.
We are called to the active min-
istry Jesus outlines in Luke 4:18-19:
"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me to
preach good news to the poor. He
has sent me to proclaim freedom
for the prisoners and recovery of
sight for the blind, to release the
oppressed, to proclaim the year of
the Lord's favor."
To walk in the light means to
minister to the hungry and poor, to
proclaim freedom to those captive
in the chains of life, to give sight to
those who are blind, and give
release to those who are
oppressed.
No one wants to be in the dark.
Let us proclaim 2007 the year of the
Lord's favor and actively shed
God's light and life into any dark-
nesswe encounter around us.

bass fishing tourney


CLEWISTON The Everglades
Division of the $8.8 million Wal-
Mart Bass Fishing League will visit
Lake Okeechobee in Clewiston,
Feb. 3, for the first of five regular-
season events to be held on Lake
Okeechobee this year. As many as
200 boaters and 200 co-angler s are
expected to compete in the tourna-
ment, which will award as much
as $45,000 in cash, including a top
award of $6,000 in the Boater Divi-
sion.
If the winner is a participant in
the Ranger Cup incentive program,
he will receive a $1,000 bonus from
Ranger Boats and $500 from Yama-
ha if his boat is powered by Yama-
ha. Ranger will award $500 to the
highest-finishing Ranger Cup par-
ticipant if not the winner, and
Yamaha will kick in $250 if the boat
is powered by Yamaha. Bom-
bardier will award $1,000 to the
winning boater if the winner's boat
is equipped with a qualifying Evin-
rude E- TEC or Direct Injection out-
board. That's a potential top award
of $8,000 for anglers who meet
contingency guidelines.
The winning co-angler will earn
as much as $3,000 cash.
Snickers Big Bass awards of up
to $1,000 and $500, respectively,
will also be awarded in the Boater
and Co-angler Divisions.
Anglers may register for the
tournament online at FLWOut-
doors.com or by calling (270) 252-
1000. Onsite registration will be
held Feb. 2, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the
Wal-Mart store located at 1005 W
Sugarland Highway in Clewiston.
Entry fees are $200 for boaters and
$100 for co-anglers.
Roland and Mary Ann Martin's
Marina in Clewiston will host the
takeoff and weigh-in at 7 a.m. and
3 p.m., respectively.
The top 40 boaters and 40 co-
anglers in each of the BFLs 28 divi-
sions at the end of the season
advance to a no-entry-fee Regional
Championship where boaters fish


for a new Ranger boat and a Chevy
truck and co-anglers fish for a new
Ranger boat. Seven regional cham-
pionships will each send six
boaters and six co-angler s to the
no-entry-fee 2008 Wal-Mart BFL
All-American presented by Chevy,
which features a $1 million purse
and a top award of $140,000 in the
Boater Division and $70,000 in the
Co-angler Division. Anglers who
compete in all five regular-season
events within a division but do not
advance to a Regional Champi-
onship are eligible to compete in
the Chevy Wild Card, which will
also send six boaters and six co-
angler s to the All-American for a
total field of 48 boaters and 48 co-
angler s.
The winning boater and win-
ning co-angler at the All-American
advance to the no-entry-fee $2 mil-
lion 2008 Forrest Wood Cup. This
event, featuring a top award of $1
million, is the most lucrative tour-
nament in all of competitive bass
fishing. In all, the BFL offers week-
end anglers the opportunity to
qualify for three no-entry-fee
championships with total cash
awards exceeding $3 million. Plus,
the top 40 boaters and 40 co-
anglers from each BFL division
may move up to the Stren Series for
2008 while All-American champi-
ons have the option to advance
directly to the Wal-Mart FLWTour.
Everglades Division anglers will
compete on Lake Okeechobee for
all five regular-season events. Ever-
glades Division anglers' next event
will be held March 3, for their sec-
ond regular-season event, followed
by an event March 31. The divi-
sion's fourth qualifying event will
be held April 28. A two-day Super
Tournament, the division's fifth
and final event, will be held Sept.
29-30.
Following the end of regular-
season competition, the top 40
boaters and 40 co-anglers in the
Everglades Division will advance to


the Lake Seminole Regional Cham-
pionship in Bainbridge, Ga., Oct.
25-27, and will compete against
anglers from the Bulldog, Dixie and
Savannah River divisions for an All-
American berth.
In BFL competition, boaters
supply the boat and compete from
the front deck against other
boaters. Co-anglers compete from
the back deck against other co-
anglers.
As the nation's leading provider
of affordable, close-to-home week-
end tournaments, the BFL is widely
credited with opening competitive
bass fishing to the masses. It also
serves as a steppingstone for
anglers who wish to advance to the
Stren Series and ultimately the FLW
Tour bass fishing's most lucrative
tournament circuit.
