Politician weighs in on issue


Mahoney supports
construction of
FPL power plant
LABELLE In a videotape
prepared for the Glades County
Economic Development Coun-
cil's annual luncheon, held Jan.
26 at Maine's Best Seafood at the
Port LaBelle Inn, freshman Con-
gressman Tim Mahoney pledged
to work with local officials to
work to protect the rural quality
of life while helping to find
opportunities to help Glades


County thrive.
The Venus Democrat
expressed his regrets at being
unable to attend the luncheon,
having visited Glades County
during the annual legislative del-
egation luncheon hosted by the
EDC in November.
The former businessman and
entrepreneur said he ran for
Congress to help ensure Ameri-
ca's ability to compete and win
in a global economy.
"Today, America is just wak-
ing up to the threat of global
competition. We see it at the


super Wal-Mart where the
majority of products come from
the Far East. We see it when our
husbands and wives shop on
ebay and purchase products
made in Britain that are deliv-
ered to our door by UPS the
next day," Congressman
Mahoney said. "It takes the form
of cheap citrus from Brazil, or
beef from Argentina.
"Three weeks ago I was a
business man and entrepreneur
with over 25 year experience in
the computing and financial
services industry. As the

founder of several businesses
and a nonprofit, I've spent my
life working to create jobs, dedi-
cated to fostering innovative
entrepreneurship to making
sure America continues to be
on the cutting edge of innova-
tion and the world economy."
Congressman Mahoney
pledged to work with local lead-
ers "100 percent" to foster eco-
nomic development in Glades
County and throughout the dis-
trict.
Congressman Mahoney
specifically cited the FPL power


plant.
"I congratulate you on your
efforts to bring the power plant
to Glades County, knowing it will
bring jobs, build infrastructure
and provide a tax base on which
you can build," Congressman
Mahoney said. "Your efforts to
recruit businesses and tourism
are the kind of economic devel-
opment model which will pro-
duce results now and in the
future."

Recent trial start of
career in county

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Courthouse
MOORE HAVEN When
two men were charged with
baiting and fighting animals
on the Brighton Reservation in
2004, it became a big enough
story to be carried by CNN,
National Public Radio and the
New York Times.
Eventually, the trial took
place in Glades County last
Jan. 25. It was not the first
time Travis Trueblood repre-
sented defendants in a trial,
but it was his first trial at the


Glades County Courthouse.
Mr. Trueblood believes this
was a unique trial in several
ways.
First of all it is indeed a
felony to fight animals, but in
Florida, the field trials used to
train hog dogs are not against
the law.
According to Trueblood,
the system tried to make the
defendants' acts against the
law even though a law against
it has not been legislated.
Another unusual part of the
trial was the fact that the
defendants testified on their
own behalf. This is more diffi-
cult since the burden of proof

Beat of Scottish Highlander is a bagpipe and drum band from Sebring. They played
music at the Sour Orange Festival and shared historical facts about bagpipes and
drums during times of war. The bagpipe was considered a weapon of war and the piper
was a target to be killed just as any other warrior would be.




Monique Moss, Glades


County Teacher of the Year


Mathematics
teacher has taught
for five years

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Glades
County School District chose
Monique Moss as teacher of the
year 2006-2007.
For five years she has taught
algebra to high school students
in ninth through twelfth grade.
Ms. Moss was a 1992 graduate
of Moore Haven High School.
She received her degree from
the University of South Florida


in Tampa.
"The biggest thing I do for
my kids is I want to make them
feel comfortable. If you feel
comfortable then it is enjoy-
able," she replied when asked
about her success with algebra
and classroom management
Ms. Moss understands that
mathematics is intimidating to
many people. She lets students
know that even though it was a
natural study for her, there are
other subjects that she found
intimidating like writing and lit-
erary criticism. She was able to
overcome those subjects by
thinking to herself, "Yes I can
take my time and do it."


Before she taught high
school, Ms. Moss was an ele-
mentary teacher at Moore
Haven Elementary School for
five years. She taught second,
third and sixth grade.
Ms. Moss believes this earli-
er experience is what truly pre-
pared her for secondary stu-
dents. She mentioned that
many people forget that high
school students are still kids. So
she puts forth the effort to give
them help the way she did her
younger students.
She also mentioned that her
principal, Jean Prowant was

Guest Commentary


Glades area is tired of being singled out


By Robert E. Coker
David Guest's Jan. 22 commen-
tary in the Sun-Sentinel applauded
a federal court ruling that essential-
ly outlawed the cleanest 3 percent
of the water going into Lake Okee-
chobee while ignoring the worst 97
percent. Until environmental
groups let go of their obsession
with sugar farmers and start attack-
ing the major pollution problems
north of the lake, everything down-
stream will continue to suffer.
The Clean Water Act was never
intended to usurp a state's respon-
sibility for moving water. Apparent-
ly Guest knows better than to sug-
gest that the South Florida Water
Management District not operate
the pumps that move water from


the heavily populated urban areas
to the bays, rivers and coastal estu-
aries. No, he attacks only the farm-
ing area south of Lake Okee-
chobee.
Not only is the water south of
the lake some of the cleanest water
in the entire system, but the farm-
ing areas south of the lake account
for less than 3 percent of the water
that goes into Lake Okeechobee.
Water is backpumped from the
rural communities of Belle Glade,
South Bay and Clewiston only
when excessive rainfall would oth-
erwise flood these farming com-
munities.
Stopping the ability to operate
these pumps will cause these com-
munities to be under water every
year. People in the Glades are


growing weary of being singled
out and treated differently from
every other area in the system.
Ninety-seven percent of the pol-
lution and the water flow into Lake
Okeechobee comes from the
northern half of the watershed,
draining developments from
Orlando south. This water is
responsible for damaging both the
lake and the coastal estuaries, yet
no one is throwing the Clean Water
Act around to stop this water, or to
demand that it be cleaned before
entering the lake. Instead, precious
time and tax dollars are wasted on
much lesser issues.
Everyone in South Florida lives
in a man-made drainage system
that we all recognize is not perfect.
There are more than 3,000 various


structures around the lake that
move water so that people, their
homes and their property through-
out the region do not flood.
Yet, only three of those struc-
tures, conveniently located in the
farming communities, were the
target of this judge's ruling.
The South Florida Sun-Sentinel,
the lake and the people of South
Florida would be better served by
strongly insisting on an expedited
program to restore Lake Okee-
chobee, rather than wasting time
and money harassing sugar farm-
ers and flooding the Glades com-
munities.

County passes land


regulation changes


FDOT plans
several projects

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The county
commissioners meeting Feb. 13
focused on land development,
which has been an issue for sever-
al months. Construction projects
from the Florida Department of
Transportation were also present-
ed.
Larry Hilton proposed an
amendment to the Glades County
Land Development Regulations.
These proposals ask the county to
adopt revisions to the regulations.
The first revision involves
keeping explosives on agricultur-
al land. Currently the county does
not have a category specifically
for the storage of explosives.
The revised table of zoning dis-
trict uses established guidelines
for the location of land where
explosives may be stored. Specifi-
cally, the location of storage may
not be accepted if it is within one
mile of an area where the future
land use is not agricultural open
flood plain, agricultural open, or
agricultural/residential.
The second revision creates
planning developments for
parcels of land less than ten acres.
Reducing the minimum,number
of acres will ensure that the
Planned Unit Development zon-
ing district is available to, and
usable by, developers of smaller
developments.
A third revision addresses an
observation of the Community
Development Department. They
have noted the difficulty many
residents have in regards to the
placing of accessory buildings on
smaller lots. This results from hav-


ing to meet the setback require-
ment for a principal structure.
There is now a revised table of
requirements called Minimum
Dimensional Standards for Devel-
opment. The table establishes set-,
backs for accessory structures of
five feet in the side and rear yards
of a property.
A fourth revision concerns the
nuisance ordinance which has
been amended to define the term
nuisance as the doing of an act, or
the omitting to perform a duty, or
the suffering or permitting of any
condition to exist, or tends to
depreciate -the property value of
others. The ordinance's language
relevant to the keeping of domes-
tic livestock specifically states,
"Pertaining to the keeping of any
animal; shall not create a nui-
sance with regard to noise, odor,
vectors, dust, vibration, or other
nuisance effects beyond the prop-
erty lines of the parcel upon
which the use is located."
Representatives from Florida
Department of Transportation
were present at the meeting to
discuss construction in Muse.
This will be the widening and
resurfacing of C.R. 731 and C.R.
720, and a bridge replacement.
Since a bridge closure is neces-
sary, the Florida Department of
Transportation has decided to
work in cooperation with Glades
County School District to ensure
that the closure will not affect
school bus transportation. The
project will be done during the
summer of 2008 when school ses-
sions are closed.
FDOT representatives also
briefed the county commission-
ers on the project status of bike
paths and sidewalks in Ortona
and Lakeport.

AVON PARK For the first
time, the South Florida Commu-
nity College Jazz Series has sched-
uled two performances for the
same day! The Four Freshmen
will perform two shows Wednes-
day, Feb. 28, 2 p.m. and 7:30 p.m.,
in the SFCC University Center
Auditorium, Highlands Campus,
Avon Park.
When jazz lovers think of Indi-
ana jazz, they think of Richmond
and its recording studio, or they
remember Lionel Hampton, J.J.
Johnson, Red Nichols, and Hoagy
Carmichael. The list could go on
and on. One name often over-
looked is a vocal/instrumental
group that has been hanging
around since 1948!
A little over 58 years ago, two
brothers, Ross and Don Barbour,
formed a quartet called Hal's Har-
monizers, while they were stu-
dents at Indiana's Butler Universi-
ty. Those of us who were students
in the 1950s and 1960s remember
the group by the name they even-
tually adopted, "The Four Fresh-
men." Their jazzy sound caught
on and remained popular into the
mid-1960s.
In 1948 at Butler performances,
Hal's Harmonizer's top two songs
were "Moonglow" and "The
Christmas Song." As the group
developed its free, improvisational
approach to harmony singing, new
members, Bob Flanigan and Hal
Kratzsch, were added to the sound.
Flanigan remained with the group
through 1992.


The Four Freshman.
Jazz greats at that time such as
Dizzy Gillespie and Woody Her-
man took notice, but big band
leader Stan Kenton brought the
group to the attention of his Capitol
record label. The Four Freshmen
started pumped out hits beginning
with "It's a Blue World" (1952), fol-
lowed by "Mood Indigo" (1954),


Submitted photo


"Day by Day" (1955), and "Gradua-
tion Day" (1956). In 1955, Voices in
Modern was released. It was the
first of 13 albums in a five-year peri-
od with Capitol.
New lineups continue to per-
form into the 21st century, and they
continue to attract warm audi-
ences along with garnering awards


such as Downbeat magazine's
"Vocal Group of the Year" in 2000.
Then, in 2001, the prestigious jazz
label, Mosaic, released a multi-CD
box-set of the group's 1950's
records. In 2003, Jazz times also
named the group as "Vocal Group
of the Year." The Four Freshmen's
popularity remains today as it did
almost six decades ago.
Today's Four Freshmen are
Vince Johnson, who joined the
group in 1999 and sings baritone
and plays bass, guitar, and trom-
bone; drummer Bob Ferreira, who
has been with the group since
1992; guitarist and lead singer,
Brian Eichenberger, joined them in
1996 and trumpeter Curtis
Calderon, the most recent addition
to the band,joined them in 2001.
The SFCC Jazz Series is co-
sponsored by Bill and Lisa Jarrett,
Sevigny and Johnson Eye Care, and
Highlands Today.
Ticket sales have been strong
for the Four Freshmen's two
appearances on Feb. 28, at South
Florida Community College, but
tickets are still available. Ticket
prices are $22 and $26 and can be
purchased online 24 hours a day,
seven days a week, at www.south-
florida.edu by clicking on "Perfor-
mances." Tickets may also be pur-
chased by calling the SFCC Box
Office at (863) 784-7178 or by visit-
ing the SFCC Box Office located at
the front of the SFCC Auditorium,
600 West College Drive, Highlands
Campus, Avon Park, 11:30 am -
2:30 p.m., Monday-Friday.

Child Care of Southwest Florida


LABELLE Child Care of
Southwest Florida, Inc.,
launched a year-long celebra-
tion of its 40th anniversary
recently by announcing that it
has served more than 100,000
children with early childhood
education since the non-profit
agency began in 1967.
Child Care of Southwest Flori-
da, Inc., operates three child
care centers in Hendry and
Glades counties, including Chil-
dren's Garden of LaBelle on
Highway 80 in LaBelle; Glades
County Child Development Cen-
ter on Hendrix Street in Moore
Haven, and Harlem Academy
Day Care Center in Clewiston.
The agency also provides servic-
es in Lee and Collier counties.
"It truly is amazing, the num-
ber of lives we've touched over
the years," said Bill Robinson,
chairman of the board of direc-
tors of Child Care of Southwest
Florida, Inc. "Parents who
received care as children in our
centers are now adults with fam-
ilies of their own."
In addition to providing child
care in its 10 directly-operated
centers, Child Care of Southwest
Florida offers referral services
for families seeking child care,
conducts and coordinates train-
ing for child care workers, and
administers the federal and state
child care subsidy program for
parents who cannot afford child
care.
"We are very fortunate to
have the Early Learning Coali-
tion of Southwest Florida as our
partner for the past three years.
By working together, we are
realizing our goal of providing
high quality early childhood
education experiences for chil-
dren throughout Southwest

PUBLIC NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE AIR PERMIT
Florida Department of Environmental Protection
Draft Air Permit No. PSD-FL-333C
Project No. 0510003-037-AC
U.S. Sugar Corporation Clewiston Sugar Mill and Refinery
Hendry County, Florida
Applicant: The applicant for this project is the U.S. Sugar Corporation. The applicant's authorized representative and mailing address is:
Mr. Neil Smith, Vice President-and General Manager of Sugar Processing Operations, U.S. Sugar Corporation, Clewiston Sugar Mill and
Refinery, 111 Ponce DeLeon Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440.
Facility Location: U.S. Sugar Corporation Operates an existing sugar mill and refinery, which is located in Hendry County at the intersection
ofWC. Owens Avenue and State Road 832 in Hendry County, Florida.
Project: Boiler 8 was originally permitted as a major modification in accordance with Rule 62-212.400, EA.C. for the Prevention of Significant
Deterioration (PSD) of Air Quality. Subsequent projects must be reviewed for PSD applicability. The applicant proposes the following revisions
to Permit No. PSD-FL-333 for newly constructed Boiler No. 8: clarification of boiler startup procedures; modification of the biomass in the heat
input and steaming rates. As constructed, this newly designed boiler is actually capable of generating. 15% more steam when firing approximate-
ly 15% more fuel. Although this will result in potential increases in hourly emission rates, annual potential emissions will not'increase because
there will be no change in the current limitation oil the annual steam production. Initial startup of Boiler 8 was March of 2005. This unit has not
established normal operations for a two-year period, Pursuant to Rule 62-210.200(11), EA.C., there will be no increase in annual emissions and
the project is not subject to PSD preconstruction review.
Because the project results in increased potential maximum short-term emissions, all air quality impact analysis was conducted for carbon
monoxide (CO), nitrogen oxides (NOx), particulate matter less titan. 10 microns in diameter (PMio), and sulfur dioxide (SO2). For these pollu-
tants, the initial air dispersion modeling analysis predicted ambient concentrations below the applicable PSD significant impact levels for the
closest PSD Class I Area, which is the Everglades National Park. The initial air dispersion modeling analysis also predicted ambient concentra-
tions below tire applicable PSD significant impact levels for the PSD Class 11 Areas in the vicinity of the plant, except for the 24-hour average
SO2 value. Therefore, a refined analysis was conducted for SO2, emissions. The subsequent modeling results showed all predicted S02 emissions
impacts well below the applicable state and federal ambient air quality standards, The following table compares the total maximum impacts pre-
dicted in the area with the corresponding maximum n allowable PSD Class II increments.

Update on national Salmonellosis P.tr51un,.0 9..1,505-4


outbreak and the state of Florida


LABELLE The Florida
Department of Health (DOH).
confirms three cases of Salmonel-
la Tennessee in Florida that match
the national salmonellosis out-
break strain. The cases were con-
firmed in Alachua, Hillsborough
and Pasco Counties.
Individuals should take the
time to check their peanut butter
to determine whether it matches
the peanut butter the FDA has
identified. Peter Pan and Great
Value peanut butters with the
product code number "2111" on
the lid have been identified as
possibly contaminated with sal-
monella.


Floridians should remain
aware as to any symptoms that
may arise 12-72 hours after infec-
tion. These include diarrhea, fever
and abdominal cramps. As the
CDC is currently recommending,
individuals who have this peanut
butter in their homes and are not
showing any symptoms should
discard the product or return it to
the store of purchase. If you or
someone in your family are show-
ing symptoms, do not discard the
product arid consult a physician
to determine if a stool test is nec-
essary. Peanut butter would be
tested only if the stool test comes
back positive and the strain


matches the strain of the out-
break.

Keenagers honor local EMTsScholarship


GLADES COUNTY Your
child is having what you believe
to be a seizure; your husband
cannot walk from the car into
the house; you are having short-
ness of breath and pain in your
arm; or your grand baby has
stopped breathing. All of these
things and more have happened
to many of us, and a 911 call has
resulted in Glades County emer-
gency medical technicians
responding immediately. What a
relief it is to have someone with
training and experience arrive at
your home to help in a situation
over which you have no control.


The Keenagers (over 50
group) at First Baptist Church
wanted to show their apprecia-
tion to these EMTs who give so
much back to the Glades County
community. At their regular Feb-
ruary meeting, the Keenagers
gave a dinner in their honor, dur-
ing which Bob Jones, Director of
Public Safety and his crew of
dedicated men and women were
thanked for their service, and
told how almost everyone in the
room had been helped by them
at some time. Two Keenagers,
Dan Currie and Noah Wells, are
also members of the Gideons,


and presented each EMT and
their guest with a Gideon Bible.
The Keenagers all agreed that
having these emergency medical
technicians serving Glades Coun-
ty contributes to our peace of
mind should we need them.
The Keenagers will leave
from the church on Saturday
morning at 9 a.m. for a trip by
Tri-Rail to the Sawgrass Mall in
Ft. Lauderdale. Just a reminder,
if you plan to go to Wauchula
with them in March to see the
"Story of Jesus", contact Bobbi
Brown by Feb. 26, as tickets go
on sale then.

Strike up the band!
Tue Moore Haven Junior Senior High School Band tunes up before their performance of the
Star Spangled Banner at the Sour Orange Festival in Lakeport. The band may be small but
they are very good and their sound is reminiscent of small town America in earlier days. The
band played a handful of delightful tunes including the crowd pleasing, "Louie Louie."

Administrators and teachers prepare for the FCAT.


FCAT tests around the corner


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County democrat
GLADES COUNTY There
are probably more than a few par-
ents and kids who wish the FCAT
time of year wouldn't come
around so often. Fact is, it only
comes around once yearly and
that time is almost within reach
- Feb. 26 through March 9.
There are those who ask:
What is FCAT? The letters actually
stand for"Florida Comprehensive
Assessment Test".
The test is given to all students
in third through eighth grades. At
West Glades School in Muse,


Cathy Deerey, the student school
coordinator for FCAT, is responsi-
ble for making sure that test secu-
rity is maintained and that teach-
ers have the proper training to
give the test.
Teachers are required to, read
the instruction manual to the stu-
dents to assure that everyone's
understanding is the same.
Every grade level is not taking
every test; however, every grade
level takes the reading and math
tests. The state gives Sunshine
State standards for every grade
level. These standards are used to
determine whether or not the stu-
dent reaches the prescribed stan-
dard (skills) for that grade level.


This is a standardized assess-
ment all students are tested the
same throughout the state.
It is also required that fifth and
eighth grade students be tested
for science skills.
"Each year something is differ-
ent. I have to make sure that all
our teachers know about the
changes and additions," said
Cathy Deerey.
"Also," adds Mrs. Deerey, "Par-
ents can be a big help to their chil-
dren. For instance, make sure
they get sufficient rest during the
testing period and try to keep
them from becoming stressed.
None of us can do our best when
we are tired and overly stressed."

Local entertainer to display talents at PBCC


Playwright empowers
women to 'Meet the
Perfect Man'
By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE On March 2,
KWAR Productions will sponsor a
play entitled "Meet the Perfect
Man" at Palm Beach Community
College, featuring a local actress,
writer and producer.
Brenda Hickman plays a major
role in the production, as she is a
supporting actor in the play. Ms.
Hickman also wrote and produced
for the production.
Ms. Hickman has wanted to be
an actor since childhood. When
she was growing up, she said that
those who knew often saw her as

tion entitled "Meet the Perfect
Man." She hopes it turns out
to be a success on March 2.


an entertainer.
Ms. Hickman said that watching
movies inspired her to become an
actor.
When she was at Glades Cen-
tral High School, she applied for an
opportunity to go to a performing
arts school in New York. She was
accepted to attend the performing
arts school, but her life took a
detour, she wouldn't say exactly
what that was.
Ms. Hickman stayed at Glades
Central High School, where she
graduated in 1988.
After school, Ms. Hickman went
through various agents and film


producers, who turned her down
during casting calls, only to be
directed to modeling.
"I did dream of modeling at one
point, but acting is my deepest pas-
sion," said Ms. Hickman.
She never gave up her drive to
be in the acting industry. Now, Ms.
Hickman is involved in playwriting,
editing, producing and acting.
"The talent and creativity that
God gave me got me where I am at
today," said Ms. Hickman.
Ms. Hickman said that she sees
this production as a stepping stone
for performing arts in the Glades
area.


One of her dreams is opening a
performing arts school in the
Glades.
"I hope to someday bring Holly-
wood to the Glades," said Ms. Hick-
man. "I want to open doors for
other aspiring entertainers here in
the Glades."
Ms. Hickman is the wife of
Pahokee Deliverance Christian
Center pastor Willie Hickman, Jr.
They have four children: Ken-
neshia, 20, Willie III, 16, Artiona, 13
and Rakiara, 12.
One of their children, Ken-
neshia, is the main character in the
production. Kenneshia plays Carla,

a woman who meets a minister
named Pastor James.
Carla thinks that Pastor James is
the perfect man for her. Carla does-
n't know, however, that James has
skeletons in his closet.
Ms. Hickman hopes the com-


munity will support the play.
For more information, please
call Brenda Hickman at 561-914-

February brings change of seasons newszap-com
Comcun ty Links. Indivufl, Vt ces.


By Gene McAvoy
Extension Horticulture Agent
Although February is a lot like
January to the casual observer,
mostly cool and dry, the subtle
changes marking the annual
rotation of the seasons are
becoming more apparent.
Although the mercury may
obscure the reality warmer
weather is really right around
the corner.
Mother Nature being more
attuned to seasonal change is
well aware of this fact. Flocks of
swallows which moved south
through our area in December
are now back and on their way
north. Robins are bunching up
in large flocks and feasting on
the bright red berries of Brazilian
pepper while waiting for the
weather to break up north.
Along the roadsides and
ditches, the dainty little lavender
flowers of the blue toadflax pro-
vide a brush of color to contrast
with the dry brown grasses.
Cypress, oaks, and willows are
all flowering now while the red
maple has already finished and
preparing to send its scarlet
winged seeds spiraling to earth.
The quickening rhythm of life
at this time of year is also a clear
signal to gardeners of several
chores which should be accom-
plished in the coming weeks.
There are several garden tasks
that should be performed in Feb-
ruary that will help set the stage
for success in the landscape over
the coming year.


Hendry

County

Garden

Just as Mother Nature is
beginning to respond to subtle
changes in temperature and day
length; so are the cultivated
plants and weeds in the land-
scape. Over the next few weeks,
many trees and shrubs will
begin to respond to these chang-
ing conditions with the first of
several flushes of growth which
we will see over the course of
the year. To help get plantings off
to a good start, it is important
that they are provided with ade-
quate nutrition to support the
new growth. February is the per-
fect time to fertilize your trees,
palms, shrubs, vining plants and
lawns.
A general fertilization pro-
gram for most perennial plant-
ings includes three applications
of fertilizer per year. These appli-
cations should normally be
done in February-March, May-
June and September-October to
coincide with and support peri-
odic flushes of new growth. Fer-
tilization is best conducted on
the basis of a soil test. In the
absence of a soil test, a com-
plete fertilizer will provide good
results in most instances. Feel
free to contact the Hendry Coun-
ty Extension office for more spe-
cific fertilizer recommendations


or assistance with soil testing.
While lawns and lawn care
may be far from many peoples
minds at this moment, a timely
application of pre emergent her-
bicide in early to mid February
will help prevent the emergence
of many annual grassy weeds,
whose seeds are anxiously
awaiting a break in the weather.
For best results, this should be
followed up with a second appli-
cation in 8 9 weeks after the
first. Be sure to choose the prop-
er herbicide for your situation.
This will be governed by the type
of turf and type of weeds to be
controlled.
February is typically quite dry
- be sure to irrigate as needed to
maintain plantings in top shape.
Judicious use of mulch can help
conserve moisture and reduce
irrigation requirements.
As we approach the middle
to the end of February, most
trees and shrubs can be safely
pruned if they require training or
reshaping to keep them in
bounds. Be sure to wait on prun-
ing spring flowering specimens
until after they bloom or you will
risk seriously reducing this sea-
son's floral display. Most peren-
nials can be safely divided and
reset in February.
This is the last month that the
planting calendar is wide open for
most vegetables and flowering
annuals in our area. Be sure to
use transplants as seeded plants
will be hampered by hot weather
before reaching maturity. Febru-
ary is a good time for planting


watermelons. Other vegetables
that can be planted this month
include beans, beets, broccoli,
cabbage, cantaloupe, collards,
cucumbers, eggplants, leaf let-
tuce, mustard, peppers, squash,
Swiss chard, and tomatoes.
Flowering annuals that can
be planted this month include
baby's breath, bachelor buttons,
balsam, calendulas, carnations,
cosmos, cockscomb, daisies,
forget-me-nots, gaillardia, holly-
hocks, impatiens, lobelias,
marigolds, morning glories, nas-
turtiums, pansies, periwinkles,
petunias, phlox, pinks, poppies,
portulacas, salvia, statice,
stocks, strawflower, sweet peas,
sweet William, and verbena.
Bulbs to plant this month
include amaryllis, blood lily, cal-
adiums, crinum daylilies gladio-
lus, iris, and zephryanthes.
Insect and disease pressure
will increase with the return of
warmer weather so be sure to
monitor your plantings on a
weekly basis and practice an
integrated pest management
program. Good luck and good
gardening.

Seminole War reenactment displays


Seminole Tribe of Florida will
present reenactments of the Sec-
ond Seminole War at the Big
Cypress Shootout at Billie
Swamp Safari located between
Fort Lauderdale and Naples, on
the Big Cypress Reservation just
north of 1-75 (Alligator Alley)
Exit 49.
The battle reenactments
honor the Seminole's struggle
and sacrifice to remain in their
homeland and will feature
authentic weapons, soldier and
warrior attire and tactics typical
of the Second Seminole War.
The three-day event will also


include time period encamp-
ments, alligator wrestling, snake
presentations, music, food, arts
and crafts, storytelling and Semi-
nole and pioneer artisans. "Peri-
od settlers" from around the
country will hew wood, iron and
silver crafts and depict trading
techniques from the Seminole
war era.
Musical guests include: Oke-
fenokee Joe, Benjamin Dehart
(The Cracker Tenor) and Cow-
bone.
The reenactments will take
place Friday, Feb. 23, through
Sunday, Feb. 25


Gates open on Friday from 11
a.m. until 4 p.m. and on Satur-
day and Sunday from 10 a.m.
until 5 p.m.
Battle reenactments will take
place at 2 p.m. on Saturday and
Sunday.
Billie Swamp Safari is located
between Fort Lauderdale and
Naples, on the Big Cypress
Reservation just north of 1-75
(Alligator Alley) Exit 49.
In the 1800s, a total of three
wars were fought by the U.S.
military against the Seminoles.
These campaigns were the
longest, costliest, and bloodiest


of all the Indian wars. Although
many Seminoles were killed or
removed to present-day Okla-
homa, they were never defeated,
and to this day, 3,000 Seminoles
are known as "The Uncon-
quered" Seminole Tribe of Flori-
da.
The cost for tickets is $7
adults and just $5 for children
(Cash only, please)

events or on the Seminole tribe,

lies with the prosecution.
Mr. Trueblood mentioned
that the defendants can be asked
questions that twist things
around. However, his clients felt
the need to tell their side of the
story so the jury would better
understand the situation.
The final, pertinent part of the
trial was the fact that the sover-
eignty of a Native American
Tribe was left intact. This right to
sovereignty ensures that Native
Americans can make their own
decisions about their tribe and
its lands.
The hog dog field trials took
place on the Brighton Reserva-
tion; but the Seminole Tribe of
Florida, by their own decision,
chose not to attend or testify at
the trial.
Travis Trueblood is pleased
with this aspect in the trial and
said, "Although the tribe may not
realize it, this is a victory for

Based on experiences and trials, your life story


By Jackie Miller
First Christian Church
In a way, every life is a contin-
ued story made up of separate
incidents, but with a basic plot run-
ning through the whole.
At this moment, you are some-
where in the story of your life. You
are where you are because of cer-
tain things that have happened in
the past, because of experiences
that have carried through from pre-
vious chapters, and because of the
underlying ideas that are currently
running through your mind.
Of course, the most important


parts of your life story are not those
incidents that happened to you, but
the many things that happen
through you all the time. And these
are primarily the result of your
basic plotting of your life.
Strangely enough, while most
people prefer to read stories with a
happy ending, many of them plot
their own stories with more regard
for the trials, tribulations, and indi-
cations of calamity, than for the
possibilities of good.
You are not the victim of circum-
stances! You are the writer of your
own experience in living. If you


don't like the way the script reads at
present, then it is your job (and
your responsibility) to start in right
where you are to change it, to write
it nearer to what you truly desire
and the goal you want to reach.
You will never do this by regret-
ting the past; looking back and
wishing you could relive certain
chapters. You will never move for-
ward while you complain, "If I
had just known years ago what I
know now!"
You are now, at this moment,
the product of what you have
learned and what you have experi-


enced through the years you have
lived, and this is the place to start
building your life in the direction
you want to take.
First, it is well to consider, just
what you would like to have as the
underlying truth in your life, what
you would like to choose as your
plot for living.
Choose wisely. Base your life
firmly and definitely on the right
ideas, and you will find that the
chapters have a way of writing
themselves and filling your life
experience with good.
Plot your life with faith faith in


a higher power that has created
you for good and needs you to
round out and fulfill the text of a
greater story of good. By all
means, incorporate faith in basic
goodness and faith in the future
into your plot for living.
Base your life, too, on courage,
the courage that enables you to
meet the situations that each new
chapter brings with a high heart
and a fearless spirit. Know that
each experience, rightly met, takes
you forward to something better.
Best of all, base you life on god,
and see the understanding of his


nature, his love, his wisdom, to
increase your own ability to cope
with the things that arise in your
daily living.
Let god furnish the plot; base
your life on the use of spiritual prin-
ciples according to your own best
understanding; and you will find
each day brings many blessings,
and each chapter leads your nearer
to the happy culmination of your
experience of living.

News in Brief


Overcoming what is the First Law of Wing-Walking ChrstianCenter


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
There's a story of a man who
had a garage sale. One of the
items in the sale was a hot air
popcorn pop-
per. It was still
in the original
box and still
had the war-
ranty. A
woman
bought it for
$3. The day
after the sale,
the woman John
was at the
door demand-
ing a refund because, "The pop-
per didn't work". She had tried
it, and the popcorn had taken 30


minutes to pop. The man was a
nice guy and gave the woman
her three bucks back. After she
left, the man plugged in the pop-
per and tested it. It worked fine.
He looked at the instructions
and in small print were these
words:
Please note: If the popcorn
you use is old and dry, it will take
an excessive amount of time to
pop. For best results, use only
fresh popcorn.
In some ways, this is kind of a
parable for us. Old kernels work,
but sometimes the best results
come from using fresh kernels
and fresh ideas in the popper we
call life.
Too often we live according
to what -is sometimes called
"The First Law of Wing-walk-
ing." Wing-walking was a dare-


devil practice in the early days of
aviation in which aviators
walked the wings of biplanes as
they buzzed over airfields, and
the first law of wing-walking is
this: never let go of what you are
holding on to until you are hold-
ing on to something else.
It is a wise approach to dare-
devil stunts, but as a strategy for
the life of faith in general, it is
less than helpful. One of the
secrets to successfully starting
something new is the ability to
let go of what came before.
To be fit and free for a new
calling, a new ministry, a new
way of life, or even for retire-
ment, we need to prayerfully
release our grip on what has
gone before, whether it has been
a blessing or a curse.
We are not free to receive if


our hands are tightly clinging to
what has been, but only if we
open ourselves to the newness
that awaits in the future. Releas-
ing that which formerly claimed
so much of our energy and devo-
tion is essential to receiving this
freedom.
Life as well as ministry always
involves change. We often fail to


truly embrace the new blessings
God has in store for us when we
cling too tightly to the past.
As the Apostle Paul stated,
"Forgetting what is behind and
straining toward what is ahead, I
press on toward the goal to win
the prize for which God has
called me heavenward in Christ
Jesus." Philippians 3

When the tables were turned on the king


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Sometimes people will tell a
story to another to teach a lesson in
a very special way. There is a
famous Biblical account of King
David, who "stole" Bathsheeba
from her husband. This powerful
king was able to abuse his office
and lure the wife of another away
and much suffering followed.
Nobody would dare tell the king
that he was wrong by what he had
done, but there was Nathan the
prophet. He went to David and told
him about a very rich man in his
kingdom who had all sorts of flocks
and herds and a very poor man
who had only one little lamb that
he dearly loved. In spite of having
everything, the rich man wanted
the poor man's only lamb and took
it. King David got angry when he


heard the story and said that the
rich man deserved to die and
should have no pity. When David
paused, Nathan turned the tables
on David and said "That man is
you!" Then King David realized
what he had ...- :
done and said
"I have sinned
against the .
Lord." You can :
read this pow-
erful story and
its' outcome for
yourself in the
second book of
Samuel, chap- SamuelS.
ter. 12. Later in Thomas
the Bible, there
is a parable about a mote and a
beam (Luke 6:41-42) that tells us
also about it being easier to see
something in others than our-
selves. A few Saturdays ago, I was
invited to attend a class reunion of

my high school class and my
schedule permitted me to go. As I
walked into the meeting room, my
first reaction was that "these are all
old people!" and then came a
thought that hit me squarely
between the eyes; "I am part of this
group, too!" Then as I heard about
others; about one waiting for a
transplant, about another who
could not come because he was
wheelchair-bound, or about others
who had passed away, I also real-
ized something else. I stopped and
thought for a second about how
blessed, or how fortunate and rich I
was. I listened to what happened
over the years to many of those
who finished high school with me
and realized how many things I
have done and about the wonder-
ful experiences I have had. It is
wrong to compare; I didn't think of
myself as being better or worse off,
more blessed or luckier, but rather
how special for me were the per-
sons and experiences that have
come into my life. The shock and
confrontation became a round-
about way of being thankful and
grateful. I was happy for those who
had made it to this special reunion
forty-nine years later, after we all sat
on that graduation stage and then
went our separate ways. Many of
those things that are special to us
are special because they are ours;
the people in our lives, the places
where God has sent us, the things
that have happened to us, those we
love and who love us in return, and
those who challenge us and vex us.
Others share in all of these things in
their own ways as we share ours;
the Lord reminds us that "In my
father's house there are many
mansions." God shows Himself in
so many ways in so many, many
lives. I didn't have a chance to share
with everyone that afternoon
before having to return home; but I
was there long enough to see that
God had led each one on a special
path and each has a special place in
His plan. Then I remembered "I am
part of this group too!" and what
was first a shocking revelation
became a moment of thanksgiving
and praise for the blessings given to
me. One of my teachers said "We
pray more often to Santa Claus
than to God" meaning that we are
more ready to ask God for things
than to give thanks. That time, that
moment, I stopped to give thanks
and will continue to say "Thank
you, Lord" for what I learned when
the tables were turned on me one
day and I saw something in a very
unexpected way.

Lottie Lowe Sills was an Okeechobee pioneer


By MaryAnn Morris
Lottie Lowe Sills now 89 years
old was born in Okeechobee
County in 1920, just after Okee-
chobee County officially created
from a portion of Osceola County
in 1917. Her father was Sidney
Lowe. She went to school in the
Basinger Schoolhouse that now
houses the Okeechobee Histori-
cal Museum out on S.R. 98.
"They had two rooms and
two teachers then" she remem-
bered. "Pearl Pearce was one of
the teachers. I went to school
through eighth grade and that
was about all there was out in
the country back then. Of course
in the cities they had high
schools, but not in the country.
She married Harris Sills and
they had ten children: Henry,
Shirley, Wilma Lamar were born
in Highlands County at what is
now called the Edna Pearce
Lockett Estate on the west bank
of the Kissimmee River. Sidney
worked in the citrus groves (part
of these groves can still be seen
on the property) Lottie kept
house for the family in the small-
er house to the west of the Lock-
ett home.
"We moved back to Okee-
chobee to a house near what is
now Treasure Island," said Mrs.
Sills. Keep in mind, Taylor Creek
was a meandering stream,
which flowed freely into Lake
Okeechobee.
"You remember Aunt Merida
Raulerson? She delivered my
children. She was so wonderful,
she was the best!" she recalled.
Merida (Drawdy) Raulerson
had moved to Tantie with her
husband, William, son of Noel
Rabun Raulerson, Jr. in 1903.
Merida was born in Georgia in
1880 and moved with her par-
ents, George and Emily Drawdy,
to Fort Drum during the 1890's.
She soon became an indis-
pensable member of the Tantie
settlement as a midwife. Merida
had no formal medical educa-
tion; years of experience in prim-
itive conditions gave her sound
medical training with just a third
grade education. She used nei-
ther rubber gloves nor forceps,
but reported that she "never lost
a single baby."

The house where Lottie and Harris Sills lived and Henry, Shirley and Wilma, three of their ten
children were born still stands on the Lockett estate on the west bank of the Kissimmee
River. Lottie and her former daughter-in-law, Jane went back to visit recently.


Recollections
A series about Florida's
pioneers and history


"I had the rest of my children
right here and Aunt Merida deliv-
ered them all: Mabel, Jack, Bar-
bara, Leon, Hugh," she said with
a faraway look.
No wonder. Look at all the
changes she can remember.
My thanks to Mrs. Sills for
sharing these bits of her past
with us. Much history of the Lake
area would be lost were it not for
the generosity of folks with their
time and their stories.

welcomes all comments.


Lottie Lowe Sills was born in Okeechobee in 1918. Her hus-
band Harris Sills helped start the Cattlemen's Association.

WEST PALM BEACH Diver
technicians who work for South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) face unusual
risks to complete repairs.
Descending into the tea dark
waters of a shallow marsh,
maintenance divers with the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District are never quite cer-
tain what they'll find.
American alligators are a fre-
quently foul tempered obstacle
to repairs on culverts, spillways,
gates and the like, but occasion-
ally there are other nasty surpris-
es. Each of the divers has stories
to tell.
Doug Updike remembers
moving ropes, one of which
turned out to be a water snake.
James Binns was asked to help
recover a drowning victim near
a boat lock. Then there was the
time an alligator attacked the
team's remotely operated
underwater camera. Those haz-
ards are in addition to the nor-
mal risks posed by rocks, metal
parts and equipment designed
to be part of a functioning water
structure.
"Sometimes you'll be on the
job and big things will bump
into you," said Mr. Binns. "You
don't know if it's a gator or
what. It can get scary."
It was just another day on the
job for the tight-knit crew when
they set up recently at one of the
District's created wetlands to
install water flow monitors.
Trappers had to remove two alli-
gators, each about 6 feet long,
before the divers could begin
work.
Normal for these men means
handling power tools in water
where visibility is 4 inches to 6
inches on a good day, great
camouflage for more unseen
alligators. Moving carefully
through culverts and cold canals
dressed in a cumbersome,
orange dry suit and full-face
mask isn't a glamorous job. Yet
work the team does is a critical
part of the District's Everglades
restoration and flood control
efforts.
"At one time or another, I
guess we've been all over the
district," said Updike, a structure
maintenance technician who
has been diving on the job for 30
years.
The crew is doing more dives
these days, as often as three
days a week, with work often
done in the District's created
wetlands like Stormwater Treat-
ment Area 1-W, said Duane
Smith, the team's professional
supervisor.
Throughout the District there
are 10 structure maintenance
technicians qualified to dive in
and around spillways, gates, cul-
verts, canals, stormwater treat-
ment areas and other water
structures. Each is certified to
dive in open water, dark water,
with limited visibility and using a
surface air supply. On days they
aren't diving, they do surface
related repairs to the same
structures.
The flow meters installed on


"We've all been to some
of the best training
that you can get in
Florida. We're pretty
secure that when we're
diving the people up
top are looking out for
our interest."
Doug Updike,
structure maintenance
technician

their recent dive will help Dis-
trict scientists determine how
effectively the created wetland,
or stormwater treatment area, is
working to remove phosphorus
from water headed to the South-
ern Everglades.
The Florida Everglades was
once a vibrant, free-flowing river
of grass that provided clean
water from Lake Okeechobee to
Florida Bay. The Florida legisla-
ture, Florida Governor Charlie
Crist and the District have com-
mitted $3.3 billion toward the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan.
Stormwater treatment areas,
or created wetlands, are an
important part of that plan.
Overall, 40,000 acres of
stormwater treatment areas in
South Florida are dedicated to
phosphorus removal. The nutri-
ent is found in stormwater
runoff from urban lawns, pas-
tures and fields. Too much can
harm the Everglades, promoting
over-growth of invasive and
non-native plant species.
Stormwater Treatment Area
1-W covers 6,670 acres. From
May 2005 to April 2006, it
removed 18.2 metric tons of
phosphorus from 137,890 acre
feet of water. One acre-foot of
water could fill about 22 above-
ground swimming pools.
It takes about two weeks for
one drop of water to flow
through the stormwater treat-
ment area, and it leaves carrying
significantly less phosphorus.
Installing the flow meters,
shoebox sized black boxes, is a
labor intensive process for the
divers. The culverts, each six feet
wide, must be checked for alliga-
tors by a remote camera before
divers enter the water. Line ten-
ders must guide the divers' air
and communications lifelines
over rocks as they enter the
water, and everyone is on stand-
by in case of an emergency.
Chris Holling, another main-
tenance diver, was operating the
intercom from the equipment
trailer as divers' installed the
monitors.
"Doug? You got it all lined up
and good to go?" Mr. Holling
leaned into the intercom to ask,
keeping constant track of his
team's progress and safety as
they worked.
Knowing that someone is
always on deck listening for
everything from equipment
troubles to changes in a diver's
breathing adds to the confi-

agement District.


dence level of these experienced
maintenance divers. Everyone
on the team takes turns doing
the work underwater.
"We've all been to some of


the best training that you can get
in Florida," said Mr. Updike.
"We're pretty secure that when
we're diving the people up top
are looking out for our interest."

January 2007 was the warmest on record


ASHVILLE, N.C. The com-
bined global land and ocean sur-
face temperature was the highest
for any January on record, accord-
ing to scientists at the Nation
Oceanagraphic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) National
Climatic Data Center in Asheville,
N.C. The most unusually warm
conditions were in the mid- and
high-latitude land areas of the
Northern Hemisphere. In the con-
tiguous United States, the monthly
mean temperature was near aver-
age in January.
Global Temperatures
The combined global land and
ocean surface temperature was
1.53 degrees F warmer than the
20th century average of 53.6
degrees F for January based on pre-
liminary data, surpassing the previ-
ous record set in 2002 at 1.28
degrees F above the average. Last
month's record was greatly influ-
enced by a record high land-surface
temperature, which was 3.40
degrees F warmer than average.
Separately, the global ocean-surface
temperature was fourth warmest in
the 128-year series, approximately
0.1 degrees F cooler than the record
established during the very strong El
Niflo episode in 1998.
A moderate El Nifio episode that
began in September 2006 contin-
ued into January but weakened
during the month. The presence of
El Nifo, along with the continuing
global warming trend, contributed
to the record warm January. Month-
ly mean temperatures more than 8
degrees F above average covered
large parts of Eastern Europe and
much of Russia, and temperatures
more than 5 degrees F above aver-
age were widespread in Canada.
The unusually warm conditions
contributed to the 2nd lowest Janu-
ary snow cover extent on record for
the Eurasian continent.
During the past century, global
surface temperatures have
increased at a rate near 0.11
degrees F per decade, but the rate
of increase has been three times
larger since 1976, or 0.32 degrees F
per decade, with some of the
largest temperature increases
occurring in the high latitudes of
the Northern Hemisphere.
U.S. Temperatures
The average January tempera-
ture for the contiguous U.S. was
31.8 degrees F or 0.9 degrees F
above the 20th century average of
30.9 degrees F based on prelimi-
nary data. In the central and east-
ern U.S., the pattern of spring-like
temperatures that began late
December, continued during the
first two weeks of the year. For the
month, 29 states were warmer
than average east of the Mississippi
River and in the northern High
Plains. Alaska also was warmer
than average at 0.9 degrees F above
the 1971-2000 mean.
The same upper-level wind pat-
tern responsible for the warmer-
than-average temperatures in the
east, brought colder-than-average
temperatures to the southern
Plains and much of the West in Jan-
uary. Hundreds of daily low tem-
perature records were either tied or


broken during a mid-January cold
outbreak that extended snowfall as
far south as Arizona and southern
California. Below-average temper-
atures had spread across much of
the country by the end of the
month.
The warmer-than-average tem-
peratures in the eastern half of the
nation helped reduce residential
energy needs for the nation as a
whole. Using the Residential Ener-
gy Demand Temperature Index


(REDTI-an index developed at
NOAA to relate energy usage to cli-
mate), NOAA scientists determined
that the nation's residential energy
demand was approximately 3 per-
cent lower than what would have
occurred under average climate
conditions for the month. This was
much less than the estimated 20
percent temperature-related reduc-
tion in residential energy demand
that occurred during the record
warm January last year.
