Stop light may be hazard


Safety Fair March 17
in city park

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN In a town
with only two traffic lights, con-
sideration is being given to
doing away with one.
The Glades County Traffic
Safety Team met on Feb. 1 to
report and discuss traffic cita-


tions, traffic hazards and a well-
planned safety fair for all resi-
dents and visitors.
A recurring safety headache
is the traffic light at 10th Street,
which is not a fully functioning
green-yellow-red light. Instead,
it is a flashing yellow light most
of the day. However, during the
start and end of school hours it
is fully functional and this leads
to many near misses, members
of the safety team reported. Sgt.
Kim Hill mentioned that even


traffic officers get conditioned to
the flashing light.
The results under such con-
ditions can be disastrous, Sgt.
Hill said.
"We get accustomed to it
being a flashing yellow light,"
the sergeant said. "It has noth-
ing to do with people being
poor drivers. They are condi-
tioned to it flashing and to not
seeing its cycle."
Suggestions were made to
alter the light to a fully function-

al green-yellow-red light. Debra
Stallings, FDOT traffic safety
coordinator, said that some-
times a fully functional light
does not encourage big trucks
to slow down for the red light.
The drivers, she said, tend to
increase their speed so they do
not have to gear down and that
is when they might rear-end an
attentive driver who comes to a
stop at a red light.
Lucy Papp, an FHP occupant
protection specialist, was pres-


ent at the meeting. She men-
tioned that many drivers do not
remember the laws about flash-
ing yellow lights. Some drivers
slow down for them and treat
them as they would a yield sign,
while others come to a com-
plete stop and get rear ended.
This especially happens after a
hurricane, when traffic lights
sometimes malfunction.
Ms. Papp believes they do

Jury acquits



men of charges



of dog baiting


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On Jan.
25, a Glades County jury acquit-
ted two men who had been
charged with baiting and fight-
ing animals.
The incident took place on
the Brighton Reservation dur-
ing a catch dog field trail in
October 2004. After about an
hour of deliberation the jury
voted to acquit Arthur Parker of
Fort Lawn, S.C., and Don
Matthews.of Hartwell, Ga.
In Florida, the baiting and
fighting of animals is a third
degree felony.
Parker and Matthews were
charged after an investigation
by the Office of the State Attor-


ney for the 20th Judicial Circuit
for the State of Florida, by the
United States Department of
Agriculture's Office of Inspector
General, and by the Seminole
Tribe of Florida.
According to published
reports, a private investigator
from the Humane Society of
the United States was sent to
the reservation to covertly
record the catch dog trial event.
The investigator then informed
tribal authorities about the mat-
ter.
Animal rights activists con-
demn catch dog field trials as
cruel to the animal involved.
However, the press release
mentions that these field trials

Open house event
to help in selecting
majors

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades
County Democrat
MUSE This is the event
that could point your child in the
direction that could affect the
rest of his or her life.
West Glades School is having
the last of three open house
events of the year Feb. 8, from 5
to 7 p.m.
It is the event for parents and
teachers to meet face to face to


discuss their children's academ-
ic performance. No appoint-
ment is necessary.
The current teacher of the
year, Crystal Drake, has been
hired as the school's new District
Career Counselor. She will work
directly with both West Glades
School and Moore Haven Junior
Senior High School eighth
graders.
This is the time when parents
and their children need to
explore all possible information
regarding careers and vocations,
as well as give children the
chance to do the same.

Inmates built the


Last Chance Ranch


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
VENUS Florida Environ-
mental Institute (FEI), a rural
facility for juvenile delinquent
males in northern Glades County,
was founded in 1982. All the
buildings on the ranch were built
from the ground up by the young
men who were first committed
there.
Since then, other youths have
maintained the grounds and
added additional structures. It is
not state of the art, nor is it run
down. The facility is really a ranch
that has a well-used, but well-
maintained look about it.
Most of the adolescent
inmates have gone through other
programs before they reach the
"Last Chance Ranch," which is
the nickname for FEI.
The facility has fostered gradu-
ates who are least likely to return


to their former life of crime. It has
one of the best records for suc-
cess stories in the state of Florida;
so it is unfortunate, administra-
tors said, that one incident last
December has tarnished the rep-
utation of the ranch, the adult
leaders and the young men who
want a chance to start over.
The incident involved the
escape of three inmates who beat
two guards with baseball bats
and the theft of a vehicle.
All three have since been
apprehended.
Jimmy Davis, FEI program
director, wants the public to
know that the boys cannot just
walk off the rural campus. There
are security procedures and visi-
tors must be escorted onto the
ranch from a locked, gated area.
Car keys and cell phones are
locked away too. Mr. Davis said
See FEI -Page 12


INI/Nena Bolan
Everyone takes a turn at housekeeping and laundry at FEI. All student inmates are required
to do their fair share. Here, a young man takes his turn at sweeping the classroom.

applaud the writers. I was shocked by Ms. Whirl's letter. Surely she had
to have known how the commissioners snuck this Power Plant issue
in the agenda at the last minute. But this is not the first of their "sneak
methods." A public notice was put into the paper advertising a meet-
ing on solid waste. Nowhere was any mention that they have been
considering making Glades County mandatory garbage pickup. Yet, if
you attended the meeting; that is what the meeting was about. The
meeting agenda was handed out and everything on it outlined their
plans of actions and handling of materials. Again, no sufficient notice
to the public of what was/is intended to be shoved down our throat. If
people notice, these things have started since the commissions hired
this new county manager. I think these actions should be reported to
the governor.

ELECTIONS: Well, the election is over! The people have spoken
and one commissioner is out with the rest to go as soon as their elec-
tion time comes up!
These commissioners forget we elected them and they work for us.
The county manager also does not run this county. The commission-
ers should keep an eye on him so they know what he is getting them
into. The people do not want mandatory garbage pickup. Let Buck-
head Ridge residents and Muse residents arrange for their garbage by
contacting the companies. It is not the commissioners business to
make sure who gets their garbage picked up.

POWER PLANT: This Power Plant problem is exactly the way
things are being handled as far as the public is concerned. The attitude
seems to be,"Don't tell the public what you're doing or you'll never get
things done." Glades County has never prospered, not because of its
economic problems but because our leaders have contributed to the
economic problems.
"We're a poor county" has been the word since I moved here, yet if
you read the minutes or attend commission meetings, you see that
they spend large amounts of money without blinking twice. Let the
auditor say, "Oh, we need to increase our bill $5,000." Sure, give them
$5,000, they did a good job. Did they say we will have to go out for bids
for another auditor? Of course not! But, let an employee ask for a raise
and all you hear is how this is a poor county. I wonder if the commis-
sioners know that some employees have to go to the food bank to
have food for their families. Do they know that employees have to col-
lect aluminum cans, scrap metal to make extra money to pay their
bills? They have the money to give employees a fair wage. If an
employee is hired, he is hired at a higher rate than what an existing
employee is being paid and they have been here for years. Does that
make sense? Employees are not rewarded for tenure, only for who
they are related to. If these things aren't mentioned, how are things
ever going to change? Let us start with new county commissioners
who work for the people who elected them and to better their lives by
paying decent wages.

JOBS: Clewiston is getting a new Walgreens and a Tractor Supply
store, yet Glades County wants a power plant that they seriously think
is going to provide jobs. I dare say we have anybody qualified to work
in the high paying positions. Somebody should do a poll to see how
many Glades County residents work at the prison. How many Glades
County residents took part in building the prison? How many Glades
residents are building the INS Facility, the new C&D landfill? Be real in
your comments to the public, Don't open mouth and insert foot!

MORE MEETINGS: You all do realize that there will be many, many
public meetings taking place before any permits are granted or not,
don't you? It's mandated by the state. I'm as protective of the environ-
ment as anyone, but I want to at least hear what FPL has to say before I
convict and sentence them. I've watched for years and they've done
some pretty good work environmentally. I'll wait for them to make their
case before I denounce the power plant.

Letters to the Editor


Save Our Creek
not opposed
A few weeks back your head-
line read, "Save Our Creek oppos-
es Florida Power and Light Plant.
Let me just say that it could be
said that there are three distinct
groups that have made up Save
Our Creek. First, there were those
who thought that the public had
a right to Fisheating Creek
because, as they put it, "the pub-
lic used the Creek in many ways
and Lykes, allegedly, never had a
deed to do it. In my opinion, the
State USED these folks and when
they (the State) got what they
(the State) wanted, cast them
away like fodder.
The second group stepped in
after the settlement as they knew
Save Our Creek has a voice in
how the Creek was to be handled
and were interested in seeing it
handled in a sensible way. I don't
mind anybody knowing that I
was a part of this group, a Direc-
tor and Secretary Treasurer.
The third group involved in
running Save Our Creek is, in my
opinion and for lack of a better
description way out in left field.
They are, to my knowledge, all
Sierra Club members, if that tells
you anything.
I made these three distinctions
so people won't get them mixed
up. AND I just want to say that
all previous directors and all but
one member that I have talked to
on this issue, including the for-
mer president, vice president and
myself, secretary/treasurer are
TOTALLY FOR the Florida Power
and Light plant.
So, Mr. Editor, if you had inves-
tigated, your headline possibly
should have read, "Most Save Our
Creek members support Florida
Power and Light Plant".
And, when I read the letter in
the Democrat from Ellen Peter-
son, now president of Save Our
Creek and member of SING, I just
had to MOAN. Where has Ellen
Peterson been for the last, I don't
know how many months? Public
meeting after public meeting has
been held concerning the Power
Plant, including a well advised
joint meeting of the County Com-
mission, City Commission and
the School Board. Her false accu-
sations were a "slap in the face"
to virtually every elected official
in Glades County. Her letter was
so carefully and artfully slanted.
She may be a Glades County
property owner, but she just
needs to go back to Estero where
she lives.
Yours truly,
Tom Gaskins, Jr.

Coal power
cleaner than ever
Developing advanced, clean
coal technologies are essential to
a diverse energy portfolio. As a
coalition of utilities that provide
affordable, clean power to cus-
tomers in Florida and across the
nation, we were concerned by
several misimpressions
expressed on mercury emissions
in a recent letter by Amber Braatz
of SING.
First, coal power is cleaner
than ever. Emissions of all pollu-
tants including mercury continue
their steady 30 year decline, with
mercury being reduced from
existing power plants by more
than 40% since 1990 according to
recent EPA data. Of course, for
new power plants being con-
structed, even better air pollution
control devices are required that
in many cases can reduce mercu-
ry as high as 90 percent.
Recently, the federal govern-
ment adopted the first-ever rule
to control mercury emissions.
The rule builds on the 16 years of
success in controlling acid rain,
proving that the greatest sources
of emissions the hottest spots, if
you will reduce the fastest
when trading programs are used.
Recent data shows that mer-
cury travels in a global cycle and
that solutions directed at mercury
emissions from the power sector
must address substantial new
sources of less-controlled emis-
sion, like the new plants in China.
Indeed, our power plants con-


tribute less than one percent of
global mercury emissions.
To use mercury as a basis for
opposing responsible use of coal
is to threaten over half of US gen-
erating capacity. The human cost
associated with compromised
electric reliability for our schools,
hospitals, homes and businesses
would be hard to calculate. As
you well know, it is essential to be
able to affordably run the air con-
ditioner on a humid south Florida
afternoon.
We agree with the many stud-
ies that stress how important it is
to reduce mercury emissions. At
the very least, a proactive
approach to mercury control and
power production better serves
both the people and the environ-
ment of Florida and the entire
nation.

Further thoughts on
Powerpark
In the 1/25 Democrat, Tracy
Whirls, director of the Glades
County Economic Development
Council, wrote a Guest Commen-
tary titled "Coal Fired Power Plant
in Glades County." She started
this article by stating, "A thorough
and objective public opinion poll
followed the Open Houses
reveals more than 80 per cent of
the residents in Glades and
Hendry counties support the FPL
Glades Power Park...." This
exemplifies the misinformation
that is being promulgated about
the proposed power plant. After
a series of Open Houses in which
FPL made various untrue
claims-such as that we have no
mercury problem in this area and
that any mercury released by the
Powerpark would be whisked
away and not cause local pollu-
tion, attendees were polled.
What could be expected from
people when they are fed such
slanted information (i.e., in con-
trast to FPL's claims, mercury is a
grave problem locally and nearly
200 pounds of additional mercu-
ry would be released into the
environment according to FPL's
estimates and much of this mer-
cury will undoubtedly fall near its
source of emission), being told
about the so-called benefits of
this proposed power plant while
being misinformed about its neg-
ative side. In addition, how can
Ms. Whirls call this poll "thor-
ough" when it was only adminis-
tered to a small and self-selected
group of people who chose to
attend these Open Houses? In no
way does this poll accurately rep-
resent the actual attitudes held by
all of the residents of Glades and
Hendry counties, as this would
require scientific polling methods
(such as a randomized represen-
tative sample) to qualify as thor-
ough. Nor did the poll's ques-
tions, which were written by FPL
to elicit support for this project,
allow for an adequate range of
opinions to be expressed, notably
these questions excluded explicit
opportunity to express opposi-
tion and therefore did not meet
any standards of "objectivity." I
might mention I know some
about scientific polling and the
criteria for thoroughness and
objectivity, since I teach doctoral
classes on designing survey
research in my job as a Research
Professor at the University of
Florida and have conducted
many large scientific surveys. I'm
sorry Ms. Whirls, but this poll you
cite does not tell much about any-
thing. Likewise, a poll of the 175
residents of Glades County who
receive the EDC e-newsletter will
also be of limited value.
So the principal questions
remains, are the people of
Glades County being properly
informed and are their opinions
being adequately heard after
they are informed? I think not.
The proposed power plant was
approved by the Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners without being
advertised for public input.
Now the Board of County Com-
missioners is planning a public
hearing because it is required in
the permitting process bul, as
no surprise, the public will not

be allowed to speak. Citizens
will be asked to submit written
questions to a panel of experts
who will select which questions
to address. This type of one-way
communication does not allow
for open interchange, especially
since the Board of County Com-
missioners will select the panel
of experts without community
input, which is a real problem in
terms of potential bias in "cher-
ry-picking" a biased panel that
could favor the Powerplant. Ms.
Whirls, as well as many of our
elected officials, may think this
is just fine, after all they seem
convinced about what is best for
our county without any open
input from the public.
To add to the insult in this
Guest Commentary, Ms. Whirls
has chosen to personally criticize
one of Glades County's most
honorable citizens. She openly
attacked Fran Koebert for the
questions he has asked and con-
cerns he has raised about the
Powerpark. Last I heard, Fran
was struggling with trying to
understand the pros and cons of
this coal-burning power plant
and had not taken a firm position
either way, but he is surely not
ignorant as Ms. Whirls implies.
He is a retired chemist who
understands the implications of
such a plant better than non-sci-
entists, such as Ms. Whirls or any
of the Glades County Commis-
sioners. Regardless of whether
this plant is built or not, Ms.
Whirls, we all have to live in this
county together, and personal
attacks, such as on Mr. Koebert,
are rude and unnecessary.
Likewise, to attack environ-
mentalists in general the way you
have done is unacceptable. I
proudly consider myself an envi-
ronmentalist. I moved to Glades
County from Fort Myers to enjoy
the pristine beauty of Glades
County and do not want to see
that destroyed, nor do I want my
health compromised. My
motives are simply to protect the
health of the people of Glades
County, including my own, and
to conserve our natural
resources. These motives are
quite different from than that of a
huge corporation like FPL, which
cares primarily about its stock-
holders and making money. If
you have to wonder who is
telling the truth, compare the
motives of the environmentalists,-
who have nothing personally to.
gain, as compared to FPL for
whom Glades County is just one
more business opportunity.
When this Powerpark was
first proposed, I remained neu-
tral for quite a while, but I did
express concerns about the lack
of openness in the decision-mak-
ing process and the misinforma-


tion that FPL was all too obvious-
ly presenting. Since then, though
I am not an expert in the area of
environmental science, I have
spent many hours studying the
pros and cons of building this
coal-burning power plant. I have
concluded, based on my study,
that it is a terrible thing, endan-
gering both the people and envi-
ronment of Glades County for a
short-term tax benefit. Even on
the economic front, where I do
have some expertise (such as
through having conducted labor
market surveys and consulted
with employment development
programs as part of my profes-
sional career), the benefits have
been greatly exaggerated. But I
hold no doubt that the extent of
the risks has been unrealistically
minimized through distortions of
the truth. FPL can call this Pow-
erpark by all sorts of fancy
names, like "ultra super critical,"
but it cannot conceal the truth
that this thing would be a dirty
polluter spoiling our county's
environment and jeopardizing
our health. I hope the people of
Glades County will demand the
truth, not a large corporation's
spin and the passive complicity
of a Board of County Commis-
sioners that seems to not under-
stand that open citizen input is a
necessary part of a representa-
tive form of government.
Ms. Whirls, you hold a posi-
tion of great trust, which is pri-
marily government funded, and I
hope you can refrain from mak-
ing any further personal attacks
on people whose opinions might
differ from yours. This is a com-
plicated issue with very impor-
tant implications for our county's
future and citizens who pay your
salary should not fear that openly
expressing their opinions will
result in personal attacks on
them by officials, such as you, in
positions of responsibility.
Regarding your conclusion that
this proposed Powerpark is a
good thing, I and many others
citizens of the county think you
are dead wrong. And coming to
the opposite conclusion is not
because those who oppose this
coal-burning power plant are
ignorant, as you claim. I, for one,
have invested a lot of my time
gathering facts about the pro-
posed Powerpark, including
researching into many of FPL's
claim~aSthat have been proven
untrue. Iconclude from the best
evidence-L-have found available
that this project will hurt Glades
County. It's a real shame that
there is no forum for me and oth-
ers who think similarly, to stand-
up and speak openly about why
we oppose the Powerpark.

Hurricane



precipitates shower


MOORE HAVEN After last
year's hurricane destroyed
Sharon McCormick's trailer and
its contents, she had no idea that
over a year later that she would
experience another shower. This
time her new mobile home was
showered with everything that
she needed to set up housekeep-
ing again.
Thanks to the efforts of the
"Keenagers" group who hosted
the shower, and other members
of First Baptist Church in Moore
Haven, Sharon received every-
thing from bedroom furniture to
kitchen appliances. Sharon has


been an active leader in chil-
dren's activities at the church,
and members felt this was an
appropriate way to honor her for
her years of service.
Several men were overheard
saying that this was the first time
that they had ever been to a
shower. In expressing her
thanks, Sharon said, "I am so
overwhelmed and blessed by
this outpouring of love, and can
hardly wait for the finishing
touches to be done on my new
home so that I can move in and
begin using all these beautiful
gifts!"

SFWMD hosts Chinese delegation


WEST PALM BEACh The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) recently hosted a
delegation of Chinese water man-
agers and academics to demon-
strate the District's expertise and
industry-leading best practices in
hydrologic modeling, water supply
and environmental restoration.
Ma Zurong, director general of
the Hetao Irrigation District in China
,visited the SFWMD on December
27-28 with his U.S. host, Dr. Harris
Han of Houston, Texas. Their visit
was coordinated by Dr. Chansheng
He, professor and graduate advisor
in the Department of Geography at
Western Michigan University.
The delegation met with
SFWMD executive management,
engineering and hydrologic model-
ing personnel to achieve a better
understanding of water manage-
ment policies and programs in the
United States,
particularly as they relate to inte-
grated water resources manage-
ment, water rights, and environ-


mental assessment and protection.
They received briefings on the Cen-
tral and South
Florida Project; the SFWMD's
advanced hydrologic modeling
best practices; the District's region-
al water supply planning process-
es; and the Comprehensive Ever-
glades Restoration Plan.
Also as part of the visit, the dele-
gation toured Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 1 in western Palm Beach
County and the SFWMD control
room, from which several water
structures are operated. Staff from
the District's Big Cypress Basin serv-
ice center provided tours o ongoing
environmental restoration work at
Lake Trafford and Corkscrew
Swamp as well as a tour of the
basin's water management system.
"The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is recognized
internationally for our pioneering
work in such areas as environmen-
tal restoration and hydrologic mod-
eling," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chairman Kevin McCarty.


"Given the remarkable ecosystem
we help protect, we are fortunate
to attract some of the
most talented scientists and
engineers in the world. Our expert-
ise is often sought by other water
managers, and we are delighted to
assist them in implementing their
projects and spreading a vision of
global environmental protection."
In addition, the visit was utilized
to showcase the District's use of
state-of-the-art supervisory control
and data acquisition (SCADA) sys-
tems in water management.
According to SFWMD Executive
Director Carol Ann Wehle, the dele-
gation was able to observe opera-
tions of these large-scale, distributed
measurement and control systems
in irrigation scheduling, lake level
simulation, and flood forecasting to
help them refine the implementa-
tion plan of similar SCADA systems
in the Hetao District.
"One of the principal objectives
of this visit was to observe actual
applications of SCADA systems in
irrigation management," added Dr.
He. "The SFWMD is one of the
most advanced water manage-
ment agencies in the nation and
one of the best equipped with
SCADA in support of hydrologic
modeling and water resources
decision making."


Located in western China the
Hetao Irrigation District is the sec-
ond largest water management dis-
trict in China and seventh largest in
the world. It employs approxi-
mately 6,000 people.
SFWMD expertise also is sought
in the aftermath of various natural
disasters. Following Hurricane Kat-
rina, for example, two senior
SFWMD scientists were invited by
the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers
to serve as technical advisors on
computer modeling studies and
operations that helped assess the
causes of damage in affected areas.
Funded by a grant from the Unit-
ed States National Science Founda-
tion and the Sri Lankan National
Science Foundation, a U.S. team of
experts was assembled by the
SFWMD and the Colorado School
of Mines following the devastating
Indian tsunami to research the
short-term and long-term impacts
of the disaster on groundwater
resources in the coastal belt; to
date, it is the only comprehensive
groundwater resources study in the
region. The SFWMD subsequently
hosted a Sri Lankan hydrogeologist
visiting the United States under a
sponsorship from Water for People
and provided training on computer
modeling and field investigations of
coastal groundwater resources.

them. It is based on the latest
reading research, which includes
emphasis on phonemic aware-
ness, phonics, vocabulary, fluen-
cy and comprehension. For more

GAINESVILLE, FLA The
average American earns enough
disposable income in only five
weeks to pay for his or her fami-
ly's food supply for the entire
year, according to the Florida
Farm Bureau. Farmers, ranchers
and communities all across Flori-
da will celebrate Food Check-Out
Week, Feb. 4-10. Tuesday, Feb. 6,
is designated Food Check-Out
Day, the day representing when
the average American earns
enough to buy food for the year.
"Thanks to the efficient and
innovative practices of our farm-
ers and ranchers, Americans
enjoy the safest, most affordable
food in the world," said John
Hoblick, president of the Florida
Farm Bureau.
"While Americans must only
work until early February to pay
for their food, last year they had
to work until mid-April to pay for
their taxes. "U.S. consumers
spend less than 10 percent of
their disposable income on food.
This is the lowest such rate in the
world. In India, consumers pay
51 cents of every dollar for food,
on average.
"An independent food supply
is essential," Mr. Hoblick said.
"Growing food on our own
soil is vitally important. Our food
supply is safe and Food Check-
Out Week shows it's affordable."
County Farm Bureaus will be


holding Food Check-Out events
throughout the week. Some
events include donating food and
money to Ronald McDonald
House and other food charities.
Other events have Farm Bureau
members staffing booths inside
local supermarkets to raise
awareness about food affordabil-
ity and agriculture. One county
Farm Bureau even purchases
groceries for a customer every
hour during the event in their
hometown.
This week should hold mean-
ing for most Americans, Mr.
Hoblick said. By comparison, the
average American earns enough
income to pay federal, state and
local taxes for the year after 100
days or the beginning May. Flori-
da Farm Bureau Federation is the
state's largest general-interest
agricultural association with
more than 144,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide.
There are Farm Bureaus rep-
resenting 64 counties in Florida,
where agriculture comprises a
stable, vital leg of Florida's econ-
omy. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, non-profit agricul-
tural organization and is not
associated with any arm of the
government. More information is
available on the organization's
website, http://FloridaFarmBu-
reau.org.

THE ULTIMATE COMMUNITY WEBSlTE


Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, February 8, 2007


INI/Nena Bolan
The shop classroom at FEI is supervised by Norm Church, left. He has taught at the ranch
since its founding. His shop area looks like school shop classes used to look like in the
1950s and 60s. Jimmy Davis, right, is program director for FEI, which is located in north
Glades County near Venus.


FEI


Continued From Page 1
the public should feel safe with the
measures and he wants the public
to know that it took an extreme
effort for those inmates to escape.
Regional news sources erro-
neously reported that the Last
Chance Ranch was a boot camp.
FEI has never been a boot camp,
and Jimmy Davis does not know
why it was called that in the news.
The image of a hard core boot
camp and an escape has hurt the
reputation of juvenile delinquent
success at FEI, he said.
Mr. Davis spoke about the work
ethic and structured life that the
adult leaders teach the young men.
"Our goal is to positively impact
as many lives as we can with a
diverse staff and give them tools
that they can utilize in the commu-
nity or at their job," Mr. Davis said.
Upon taking a tour of their class-
rooms, this reporter was greeted by
each student. They introduced
themselves by name.
The simple act took great
courage, administrators said, since
some of them have missed out on
common socialization when they
were children. The greeting and
hand shake is an opportunity for
them to demonstrate hospitality


and fellowship.
Currently, there are 25 students
at the facility. The number of stu-
dents in class is small, allowing
more one-on-one work with the
instructor. Computers are used as
well as old-fashioned books and
pencils.
Agriculture studies, animal hus-
bandry and hands on farming are a
large part of the structured curricu-
lum. Students raise and eat their
own meat, eggs, vegetables and
fruit. They are actually able to see
the fruit of their own labor.
Norm Church is the shop and
vocational education instructor
who is supported by South Florida
Community College in Avon Park.
He has been at FEI since its found-
ing in 1982. He teaches carpentry
and construction skills and then the
youths can repair or build struc-
tures.
Recently they learned that a
building can be built from salvage
and recycling. Materials from a
structure that collapsed during a
hurricane were donated and used
to build an agriculture structure.
When a teen finishes his stay at the
ranch, he leaves with a certificate of
completion in a building mainte-
nance program.
Residents of Glades County may
have seen some of FEI's student
inmates at work on school district


Al Milligan is
better known
as Big Al. He is
seen here
teaching more
conventional
methods using
paper and pen-
cil. Most
instructors like
Big Al are also
mentors. It
comes with the
territory, they
said.


projects such as the renovation of
the ball fields. This is known as
extended campus and gives them a
chance to serve the community.
The state of Florida chooses
which youths to send to the ranch.
The average stay is from 9 to 12
months. The inmates are also cho-
sen because they have no special
needs nor are they dependent on
medication.
The ranch is a rustic, bare bones
setting.
A new goal for staff and inmates
at the ranch is the construction of a
new team leader building. This will
house the team leader in closer
proximity to the dorm/bunk hous-
es where they spend their evenings.
It will also increase the leader's
ability to supervise and should
heighten security.
The materials for the structure
are estimated to be around $5,000.
The ranch will take part in
fundraising efforts and ask for
donations in order to raise the
funds. The students will furnish the
skilled labor and Norm Church will
oversee the construction. Self-suffi-
ciency is the ultimate goal for every-
one at the Last Chance Ranch.
Visitors are welcome at FEI. For
more information, call (863) 699-
3785.

more harm than good and she
said her preference would be,
"to eliminate flashing yellow
lights."
Sgt. Hill came up with a sug-
gestion since there is a dilemma
with the light and how it is
important because it is a main
route for school buses. Her idea
was to possibly re-route school
buses and have them use the
light at Sixth Street instead..
This suggestion seemed rea-
sonable to the team and Ms.
Stallings then added that maybe
the light can be taken out perma-
nently. Vice-mayor Dave McGee
agreed.
Jorge Dominguez, school bus
driver coordinator, implied that it
should be looked into. But, he
said he first must speak to his
supervisors and involve the prin-
cipals and the superintendent.
The safety traffic team will
put forth these suggestions to
officials and see if the bus routes
can be altered. Then they will
decide if the traffic light goes, or
stays.
Mr. McGee was re-elected
chairman of the safety team. Sgt.
Kimberly Hill was re-elected as
vice-chairman for 2007.
Law enforcement agencies
will continue targeting speeding
and traffic violations in the
meantime.
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office reported that 438 traffic
violations were cited for the
month of January. Of those
cited, 239 were in the city. of
Moore Haven. Many of the cita-
tions for speeding happen as
drivers pass over the bridge and
travel west through town.
Sgt. Hill also noted the
increased traffic on C.R.720 that
runs north of the prison. She

ment is beginning to crack and
said it may need to be resur-
faced.
The traffic team is planning a
big safety fair and is hoping to
get educational attractions like
the rollover vehicle, fatal vision
goggles, crash test dummies,
child DNA kits for parents and
the Success by Six bus.
Plans are also being made for
food sales, a bicycle course and
school bus safety drills. Of
course, all of this is tentative and
a lot of work will have go into it.
Mr. McGee reserved the
downtown city park for Satur-
day, March 17. The fair will be
from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Naturally, there is an all points
bulletin out for volunteers. Many
dedicated civil servants already
give their time for the event, but
it will really work well with more
helpers, members of the safety
team said.

Career Counselor will be available
to assist parents in this phase of
their child's education, particularly
eighth graders.
The students must choose a
major to follow when they enter
the ninth grade, therefore the
deciding must be done when they
are eighth graders.
Many students or parents do not
have a concrete idea of how to
choose a major, so the opportunity
to discuss the possibilities directly
with their children's teacher and
the district's counselor can some-
times be of enormous importance
to the student.
"We will use online curriculum
to help students make their choic-

opportunity to take an interest

certain careers."
In addition, students will be

New bishop has

agriculture background


The Catholic Diocese of Venice
has a new Bishop.
In January, Bishop John
Nevins, 75, retired. His successor
is Bishop Frank Dewane.
Bishop Dewane was born
March 9, 1950, to Eleanor (Pren-
dergast) and Ben Dewane in
Green Bay, Wis., the third of their
four children. A dairy farm of
approximately 200 acres was the
environment for his early life
where he was raised with his
brother and two sisters. The fami-
ly was part of the St. James Parish
Community in Cooperstown,
Wis., where he also attended ele-
mentary school. He later went to
Denmark High School in Den-
mark, Wis. The recipient of a
bachelor's degree in social sci-
ences from the University of Wis-
consin, Bishop Dewane also has
a master's in international
administration from The Ameri-
can University in Washington,
D.C. Prior to entering seminary
formation, Bishop Dewane
worked in New York City for a
subsidiary of PepsiCo and for the
National Broadcasting Corpora-
tion (NBC) based in Moscow.
Bishop Dewane began his stud-
ies for the priesthood at Notre
Dame University in South Bend,
Ind., where he completed one year
of philosophy. Next he did his theo-
logical studies at the Pontifical Gre-
gorian University in Rome. He then
completed advanced studies in
canon law at the Pontifical Univer-
sity of St. Thomas Aquinas in
Rome. On July 16,1988, then-Bish-
op Adam J. Maida ordained Bishop
Dewane to the priesthood for serv-
ice in the Diocese of Green Bay.
Following his ordination, Bish-
op Dewane served as an assistant
pastor at Ss. Peter and Paul Parish
in Green Bay and worked at the
diocesan Tribunal. In 1991, he

was sent to serve as a memberof
the Permanent Observer Mission
of the Holy See to the United
Nations in New York City. From
1995 to 2001, he worked at the
Pontifical Council "Cor Unum,"
referred to as the charitable arm of
the Holy Father, until being named
under secretary of the Pontifical
Council for Justice and Peace in
2001. Bishop Dewane held this
position until his nomination by
Pope Benedict XVI to be the coad-
jutor bishop of the Diocese of
Venice in Florida.
Bishop Dewane has been a
member of the official delegation
of the Holy See to numerous inter-
national and United Nations con-
ferences and world summits.
Among the topics addressed by
these gatherings were: the envi-
ronment; economic and social
development; population; women
and development; human settle-
ments or housing; the Internation-
al Criminal Court; racism, racial
discrimination, xenophobia and
related intolerance; financing for
development; water; climate
change; and world trade.

If small is all you are prepared for ...


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
SJohn and Mike were out fish-
ing. Mike watched John with a
growing curiosity because John
would catch a fish and keep it,
then catch another fish and
throw it away. And John contin-
ued this with catch after catch.
The really strange part was that it
was always the big ones that
John threw away.
Finally, Mike couldn't contain
his curiosity, so he called out the
obvious question, "How come
you're throwing away the big
ones?" John answered back,
'Oh, because 1 only have an 8-
inch frying pan!"
In many ways, if small is all
you're prepared for, then small is
all you'll get. That's what the peo-
ple of Nazareth found out when
Jesus came home. In Mark 6:1,
we are told that Jesus went to His


hometown and began to teach in
the synagogue, and many who
heard Him were amazed.
"Where did this man get
these things?" they asked.
"What's this wisdom that has
been given
Him, and that
He even does
miracles? Isn't ;
this the car-
penter? Isn't
this Mary's
son and the
brother of
James, .
Joseph, Judas, John
and Simon?"
Many took Hc
offense. Jesus commented that
only in His hometown is a
prophet without honor. The King
James Version says bluntly, "He
could do no mighty work there
because of their unbelief."
This incident touches close to
home for those of us who are


church people.
It seems that the people who
knew the most about Jesus
expected the least and they got it!
They had a very small frying pan,
and it wasn't big enough for the
kinds of things Jesus could do.
Nazareth was the one place
Jesus went where they had to
settle for the natural and they
missed the supernatural. And
the scary part is that today we're
Nazareth. We Bible-believers
know a lot about Jesus, just like
His neighbors in Nazareth. We
analyze things just like they did.
If we are not careful, we can find
ourselves so close to Jesus and
so used to Jesus that we put Him
in a box, limiting Him to work
the ways that only seem practi-
cal and sensible to us.
Maybe our being "practical"
and "sensible" our avoidance
of anything that might seem
"radical" or "different" is why
so many Christians have limited


power. We don't pray for God-
sized interventions; we don't
make plans that are so big they
will fail if God isn't in them. We
go to Bible studies, church serv-
ices, and youth groups. We
argue theology, prophecy, and
spiritual gifts. We get involved in
a merry-go-round of Christian
activities, but we don't expect
the supernatural. And when we
don't expect the supernatural,
we become mired in the mud of
spiritual mediocrity.
In reality, the more we learn
about Jesus, the more we should
believe Him for. We serve and
we worship an awesome, all-
powerful Savior who is a mira-
cle-worker! We miss His mira-
cles when we don't believe Him
for miracles! If small is all you're
prepared for, then small is all
you'll get. It's time to get a bigger
frying pan and let the Lord fill it
with something bigger than we
ever dreamed!


Walking on water not always impossible


By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Walking on water was not a
big deal up north during the win-
ters. In one place where I lived,
each winter a group in the com-
munity would 1 ,
place a junk
car in the mid-
die of one the .
lakes in town '
and wager on
the exact date
the car would
sink. I learned
a few inches of
ice could sup- SamuelS.
port quite a Thomas
weight and
you could easily "walk on
water" if you waited for a good
freeze. Fishing there was differ-
ent in the winters' you'd chop a
hole in the ice and drop a line
through. People actually built
cabins on the ice with their fish-
ing hole in the middle; fishing
with all of the comforts of home
except central heat!
It was during the "fourth
watch" in the night that Jesus
went walking on the water, only
it was not frozen. His disciples

had left him and sailed off,


apparently the water was rough
and the boat was buffeted by
waves (Matthew 14:24). They
were quite a distance from shore
and all of these things are
enough to get the attention of
any sailor. Then, Jesus decided
to join them and walks out to the
disciple's boat (vs. 36). Matthew
reports that they were "terrified."
That's sometimes the reaction to
anything we see and don't
understand; it can be scary...or
not scary depending on how we
look at it. Walking on water as it
happened in the Biblical story,
would surely get my attention;
but I might not be afraid and ask
"How is that done?" rather than
being upset by it. My daughter,
when she was growing up, had a
time when she was afraid of the
vacuum cleaner but she quickly
outgrew it. Our dog is sensitive
to some loud noises; she has
become conditioned to other
noises just as loud. It doesn't
seem to be how "strange" some-
thing might appear, but how
much of it is a part of our every-
day world. I suspect the disci-
ples, when they saw Jesus walk-
ing on the water, were "terrified"
because the sea was rough, the
waves were buffeting their boat,
they were far from shore, and


when they saw the Lord walking
on the water, this is one more
thing that shouldn't be happen-
ing and the already-fearful
moments add to the unnatural
event they saw.
I've noticed that people's
states of mind affect how they go
through "scary" times. People
who are looking forward to a
vacation enjoy the air trip more
than those who are facing diffi-
culties at the end of the flight.
People take operations better
when they know it will bring
relief from a long-standing ill-
ness rather than for something
that is not understood. We do
better with crises on the job after
a calm night at home instead of
coming in when there have been
difficulties the night before. The
"carry-over" plays a large role in
how we face unexpected things
and cause us to be afraid when
we would otherwise be curious,
be terrified when we simply
don't understand, have some-
thing get us down when other-
wise we would be able to take it
in our stride. Something hap-
pened at the conclusion of
Jesus' walking on water and
reaching the disciples. He invites
Peter to do the impossible; to
walk on water himself.


Matthew tells us that Peter
"got down out of the boat,
walked on the water, and came
toward Jesus (vs. 29)" It was
when he realized that he was
doing something out-of-the-
ordinary and when the wind
came up once more, that Peter
paniced. He is rescued, they
climbed into the boat and they
sailed on. It is when we realize
that we can do things too, even if
we don't understand it all, even
if it seems unnatural to us, even
if it may seem impossible, that
great things can happen. The
miracle? The miracle may be in
seeing something for what it is;
walking on water under natural
circumstances like freezing or
under unnatural-miraculous
ones. It may be in seeing what
happens in our lives that we
don't understand as opportuni-
ties to learn and grow instead of
coupling them with past fears or
disappointments. It may be in
looking for God's hand in what is
going on around us instead of
recoiling in fright. Good things
happen when we "cast off the
baggage" that holds us back and
take each thing as an opportuni-
ty and maybe even a potential
blessing with it.

FIRST PUBLIC HEARING NOTICE
Hendry County is considering applying to the Florida Department of Community Af-
fairs (DCA) for a Small Cities Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) of up to
S750,000 for FY 2007 CDBG funding cycle. These funds must be used for one of
the following purposes:
1.To benefit low and moderate income persons; or
2.To aid in the prevention or elimination of slums or blight; or
3.To meet other community development needs of recent origin having a particular
urgency because existing conditions pose a serious and immediate threat to the
health or welfare of the community and where other financial resources are not
available to meet such needs.
The categories of activities for which these funds may be used are in the areas of
housing, neighborhood revitalization, commercial revitalization, or economic devel-
opment and include such improvement activities as acquisition of real property,
loans to private-for-profit business, purchase of machinery and equipment, con-
struction of infrastructure, rehabilitation of houses'and commercial buildings, and
energy conservation. Additional information regarding the range of activities that
may be undertaken will be provided atthe public hearing.
For each activity that is proposed, at least 70% of the funds must benefit low and
moderate income persons,

get down to business.

Work with a banker who helps you get it done.
When it comes to financial matters, you have no patience for fast
talkers. You want experienced, local decision makers right across
the desk, and you want a response in a hurry.
Oh, and you also want convenient hours, handy locations and someone
who actually answers the phone. Seems perfectly reasonable to us.
Seems like you ought to come in to Seacoast.

Feelgood about your bank
