Plan protects rural areas


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Rural
Land Stewardship was a topic
of discussion at the Glades
County Commission meeting
on March 13.
The county has agreed to
consider this program that pro-
vides incentives for landowners
to participate in long-term plan-
ning to maintain rural land use,
rather than let it be subject to


urban sprawl with loss of agri-
cultural use, and with loss to
natural resources.
Lykes Bros. Inc. owns the
258,633 acres under considera-
tion.
The stewardship area must
contain no less than 10,000
acres as a whole. A large area is
needed to sustain environmen-
tally sensitive resources,
ecosystems and habitats, and to
maintain the economic value of
agriculture, forestry, mining,


fishing, hunting and outdoor
recreation.
County Commissioner Paul
Beck has studied the program's
benefit to the plant and animal
life. He talked about the expan-
sive parcel of land and said,
"Large acreage allows for a
wildlife corridor."
RLS is also a rural develop-
ment program which allows for
smart growth. It requires plans
for 25-plus years of population
growth with compact, mixed


Talking about safety: Safe and Smart students

The Moore Haven Elementary School Safe and Smart students and parents had a
meeting March 15 with the Glades County Health Department. They watched a slide
show, walked for exercise, and ate a nutritious meal. Mrs. Alronia Langs and Shanice

Job/career expo succeeds


GCSO among
the recruiters

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN A great-
ly needed job fair was held at
the Doyle Conner Building for
residents and visitors on March
15.
Approximately 15 prospec-
tive employers set up booths
with representatives; from their
companies or agencies.
Tracy Whirls of Glades
County Economic Develop-
ment Council organized the
day with assistant Valerie
Jacobs and the help of Janice
Groves of Hendry County Eco-
nomic Development Council.
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office was very visible and
looking for recruits to man the
new correction facility on S.R
78. Sergeant Kimberly Hill and


Major Richard Jones were
there to introduce employ-
ment prospects about the
openings and job benefits.
Sgt. Hill said the current jail
has space for 40 beds, but the
new facility will have room for
442 beds. That is a large
increase which will require
more personnel to be hired,
she said.
"We are recruiting for many
positions to staff the facility
and we are concentrating now
on critical staff," the sergeant
said.
Right now there are open-
ings for record clerk,
systems/IT, booking clerk,
maintenance, central control
and correctional officers. The
sergeant also said that the
sheriff's office is always look-
ing for deputies and dispatch-
ers.
There are also current staff
members who will move to
the new facility.


"We move in June and will
announce a grand opening
soon," Sgt. Hill said. "We are
so proud of it, and it is a new
opportunity for the county."
The corrections facility will
need a medical staff, too. This
will be contracted to Armor
Correctional Health Services.
This service for inmates will be
like a clinic or small hospital
with infirmary beds, doctors,
nurses, dental health workers,
and mental health workers.
Reg Mills was the recruiter
for Armor that day. According
to him, the company has sev-
eral corrections health clinics
in Florida and other states.
"We have people who will
be on-site to do interviews
within the next few weeks and
we will do tours of the building
later on," Mr. Mill said.
Some of the booths were
set up by agencies that help

use towns and villages. Differ-
ent types of housing will ensure
a diverse society. Within these
planned communities there will
be accommodations for educa-
tion, health, and safety facilities,
as well as retail and recreation
facilities.
RLS is also a county land use
program, and the stewardship
acreage is designated in the
county's future land use as agri-
culture, rural or open cate-
gories. The county must work


with the Department of Com-
munity Affairs and supply rural
visioning, a map of the bound-
aries, and support rural eco-
nomic activities and protect
environmental resources.
Anita Jenkins was present at
the meeting. She represents
Wilson Miller, Inc. which is a
planning, designing and engi-
neering firm. They have aided

asked to help



restore lake


Project will remove
sediment from
bottom of lake bed

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Glades
County officials will be involved
in Lake Okeechobee Restora-
tion efforts.
At the March 13 meeting,
Glades County commissioners
and the county manager decid-
ed to consider bids 'from con-
tractors as the county prepares
to oversee the man-power and
equipment needed to utilize
removal and disposal of phos-
phorous laden sediments from


Lake Okeechobee.
This will restore the natural
sand bottom, nurture fish
spawning and improve condi-
tions for recreational activities,
officials said.
This area of restoration is in
the northwest shore zone of
Lake Okeechobee by Harney
Pond Canal (C-41), and is adja-
cent to the Harney Pond Recre-
ation Area. The community of
Lakeport is nearby.
Glades County mans the
recreation area and Florida Fish
and Wildlife Conservation
Commission maintains boat
ramp conditions at the loca-
tion.

GLADES COUNTY On
Friday morning, March 16, an
exhausted Bob Jones spoke
about the difficult, long hours
that volunteer fire fighters had
put in the last two weeks. He is
the county's public safety
director.
His voice sounded hoarse
over the phone as he explained
that many had worked 18 to 20
hour days. His respect for them
was reflected when he said,
"They did a hell of a job these


last fewweeks."
He also praised county dis-
patchers and EMS workers.
"They did a good job," he
said.
A fire near Palmdale on
Thursday, March 15 had roust-
ed the fire fighters once again.
"U.S. 27 was shut down from
about 9:30 a.m. to about 3
p.m.," reported Bob Jones.
Glades County currently has
the highest risk for fires in the
state of Florida. The Keetch-
Byram scale is used to deter-

Letters to the Editor


A different
view on coal plant
During my recent visit to Glades
County, I became aware of the
coal-powered electrical plant
being proposed by FPL and the
opposition to it by several
groups/individuals. I saw/read
negative information about coal
mining, coal plants, mountaintop
removal and other practices being
provided to the public. After
returning home and thinking
about this more and more, I feel
the need to provide a different
view on this information. I feel that
this information was misleading
because it did not tell both sides.
I am a resident of Lebanon, Vir-
ginia which is in the southwestern
part of the state. In the surround-
ing region of southwest Virginia,
eastern Kentucky and West Vir-
ginia, coal mining is a major indus-
try. Although I do not work in the
mining industry, I have been
around it my entire life and many
in my family have worked in the
mining industry.
Mining companies are required
to reclaim the land used in their
operation. They must put up a
bond equal to or greater than the
estimated cost of reclamation of
the land prior to being allowed to
mine. This way, if they do not
reclaim the land, the bond money
is used to complete the project.
This reclaimed land is used for
many things including housing
developments, industrial parks,
golf courses, and agricultural use. It
is often returned to a more useable
and attractive state than it was prior
to the mining. The houses, industri-
al buildings, golf courses, etc.
would have been built some-
where. I think it's a great idea to
use the resources we have avail-
able (coal) and then use the land
for further development.
As for the power plant, I live
approximately 15 miles from a
coal-powered electrical plant that
was built in the 1950s. I am sure
that with today's standards and
technology, the new plant pro-
posed by FPL will be much cleaner
than this one, yet without driving
by and seeing the plant, I wouldn't
know it was there.
Federal and state agencies such
as the EPA provide standards that
these facilities must meet. They are
monitored closely. So long as the
standards are met, I don't see the
problem. We all want electricity.
We all want good jobs forour com-
munity. We all want economic
growth in our community. Coal is a
resource that we can use to obtain
all of these things and at the same
time we can limit our dependence
on foreign oil. We should always
do our best to protect the environ-
ment and conserve our resources,
but we also must use the resources
available to us in order to sustain
our way of living.

Get all the facts
When I read your article giving
Mr. Taylor's defense of the FPL
power plant, several issues con-
cerned me, but two cannot be
unaddressed.
1) I realized you did not have all
the FPL experts' facts as the under-
lined excerpt from the article is not
verified:


"County officials say the
power plant could provide up to
$21 million each year to the
county, with even more money
being pumped into the school
system money that can be
used to improve what traditional-
ly has been left neglected."
Before Dr. Hank Fishkind made
his presentation at the recent FPL
experts meeting at the Doyle Con-
ner Building, he prepared a report
(a copy of which is in Taylor's
office) of his predictions of eco-
nomic impacts by the proposed
FPL power plant in Glades County.
The following is a recap of his fore-
cast for ad valorem revenue for the
years 2013-2054:
28.8 percent = Ad Valorem
General Fund $256,432,454 or $6.1
million per year Board of County
Commissioners controls)
12 percent = Law Enforcement
tax $114,395,921 or $2.7 million
peryear (Sheriff controls)
41.6 percent = Total to Glades
County $370,828,375 or $8,829,247
peryear
3.7 percent = SFWMD
$33,284.039 or $792,000 per year
(South Florida Water Management
District controls)
41.7 percent = School Capital
Outlay $371,676,959 or $8.8 million
per year (School Board controls-
restrictions apply for use)
12.9 percent = School Operat-
ing $114,970,775 or $2,737 million
per year (School Board controls)
54.6 = Total school
$486,647,734 or $11,586,851 per
year School Board controls
Grand Total $890,760,148 or
$21,208,575 per year which
includes the money pumped into
the school system.
I believe you owe it to FPL to
print an explanation as your state-
ment is very misleading.
And the shortage of FDOT fund-
ing for the road widening project
you mentioned is typical of bureau-
cracy when delays between plan-
ning and implementing result in
enormous cost increases. The
State determined the critical need
for the road and the cost to fix it,
but that was years ago and now
that they're ready to release the
money, it's not enough.
2) Your comment (underlined
in the excerpt below) on Taylor's
statement needs clarification:
"My first thought was: it sounds
good, but I want to know if it can
hurt somebody," the manager said.
He felt comfortable enough,
with the proposition to bring it
before residents and take the
stance that it would be over-
whelmingly good for the county.
Mr. Taylor did not bring it before
the residents. He took the informa-
tion to the county commissioners
in February 2006, and it must be
stated here in his defense, by his
own declaration he did NO negoti-
ating, simply operated as a liaison
for discussion. In fact, through his
guidance, the Board approved the
county ordinance change to allow
the power plant without having to
bring it before the residents.
It was not brought before the
residents until after September 12,
2006 when the Board of County
Commissioners endorsed the Reso-
lution of support prepared by FPL.
Avoiding input in a publicly
advertised Public Hearing also for-
feited Special Permitting stipula-
tions that would have allowed the


County to require specific negotiat-
ed alternatives on multiple issues
including host fees, or for direct off-
sets to the costs of infrastructure
needs such as four-laning SR 78,
installing traffic signals or mitigat-
ing any extended train crossing
time in front of Washington Park (if
the train has to stop at the river
crossing first), or maybe adminis-
trative costs such as the multi-thou-
sand $$ costs paid by taxpayers for
the FPL experts forum at Doyle
Conner Building last month.
What other development can
expect Glades County taxpayer to
foot the bill and hire the develop-
er's experts to defend their devel-
opment, especially when the fee
for this site application review was
only $30. And unlike all other
industrial developers in Glades
County, FPL will not pay any
impact fees, which on a similar size
venture would mean enormous
revenue to the county.
How about a utility franchise
fee? Waste Management was pay-
ing $200,000 a year to Glades
County for the privilege of provid-
ing garbage collection, and the
new c&dd landfill on SR 78 is pay-
ing $60,000 per year PLUS property
taxes on the site they purchased for
$8.1 million. FPL is not building this
plant because of the future power
demands of Glades County; they're
being given the right to produce, in-
county, a utility for non-county resi-
dents, in fact that is the whole pur-
pose for building it.
Perhaps Seller Lykes could have
agreed to nullify the landfill deed
restriction (allowing the County to
make its landfill self-sustaining), as
they are even now earning interest
on the option-to-buy deposit and
will be raising cane until construc-
tion starts.
Perhaps when FPL constructs
its fire suppression equipment if
could provide back up for Glades
County's Fire Department -
they're both "on call" 24/7. Or
maybe include a "spin-off" indus-
try (no pun intended) of produc-
ing solar panels to lead the way as
a "green" trade, creating light-
industry jobs and even provide
the "have-nots" with FPL-main-
tained power generating units to
actually reverse the "spinning" of
their home electric meters, not
those for swimming pool heaters.
Technology for this has been
around a long time, and, we are
the sunshine state.
How about arranging/providing
temporary housing needs for the
1600 construction workers for sev-
eral years? Many of these will be
highly specialized vocations with
no local market for the skills when
the plant is finished. The influx,
though short term (2 years?) will
raise rents denting the already
extremely limited affordable hous-
ing market.
What does the proclaimed effi-
ciency of using 20 percent less fuel
mean for this gigantic 1,960
megawatts park, besides the fact
we will get the same emissions as
an almost gigantic 1,568
megawatts park? If the regulated
toxic emissions were not detrimen-
tal, they would not be regulated.
The efficiency will not lower the
price most Glades County residents
pay for electricity, but will provide
better rates for those 650,000 non-
resident users.
Perhaps FPL could propose a

plant that would not contradict
Glades County EDC's Visioning.
Goals to "limit dumping ground
development" by "NOT trying to
attract heavy industry", or at least
increase county infrastructure by
fueling with natural gas because.
providing gas lines would greatly,
enhance the county's industrial
park amenities. This is not the only
plant FPL is planning for Florida
and they could diversify the fuel
source elsewhere. The demand for
power is increasing rapidly and the
gas-fired plant would take less time
to construct than coal-fired, or
alternatively, the Florida House
Energy Committee just passed its.
first bill to promote coal-fired
power plants giving tax breaks to
"integrated gasification combined
cycle" or IGCC coal plants.
IGCC is a process that turns coal
into a synthetic gas that is burned.
with regular fuel to make electricity:
which produces fewer emissions.
With these incentives provided by
this Bill, the net cost to FPL would'
be competitive.
Perhaps FPL would agree to use
straight-line depreciation and the
"cost method" for determining
depreciated property values so
Glades County Property Appraiser
will not be in the same position as
nine other Florida counties FPL has
engaged in litigation, including
Okeechobee County Property
Appraiser who has sued FPL every
year since 1998 losing millions in
tax revenue plus legal expenses.
And if ad valorem property tax is
eliminated in favor of increased
sales tax, exactly what will FPL buy
in Glades County on which it will
pay how much tax revenue?
Glades County does have many
financial needs and the expected
revenue, though misrepresented in:
your article, is lucrative. That is
exactly why we should not settle'
for a non-negotiated deal. I have,
many more questions but I think
my point is made.
The FPL proposal certainly has'
colossal potential and when it
becomes reality, I hope I can say I'
helped make it the absolute best'
deal for Glades County economi-
cally. We have a professional plan-'
ner at the helm in Community
Development Director Larry
Hilton, but even Lykes Bros. has
offered to pay Glades County's
costs to hire its consultant for'
Lykes' next venture in rural land'-
stewardship. In my opinion, to pro-
tect our resources and acquire the
best "deal" and to help Taylor nar-
row the "class" margin, Glades-
County should have a professional
negotiator and a professional"
financial consultant engaged
before, during and after the stamp
of approval on any thing anywhere
near the magnitude of this poweri
venture.
Unless, Editor, the fait accompli:'
truth is found in your other state-
ment: The final outcome: Whether .
or not the plant becomes a reality
isn't a matter to be determined by
the county anymore.
DonnaStorter Long

Correction

In last week's issue, in a story'
entitled, "County is in a financial
emergency," incorrectly report-
ed that the Glades County
School District would receive
more than $21 million in tax
credits annually from the con-
struction of the power plant.
This should have instead read,
"County officials say the power
plant could provide up to $21
million each year to the county,
with a portion of it going to the
county government and even
more money being pumped into
the school system."

Chances are you know many or most of your neighbors and
community leaders by name. You know where to meet for
social events, when school lets out and perhaps when the
trains tend to run. To the best of our ability Florida Power &
Light Company wants to make sure that the things most
important to your quality of life don't change, but only get
better.

To meet a growing demand for electricity and provide an ade-
quate supply of fuel FPL is proposing to build an advanced
technology coal plant. It would be located approximately five
miles northwest of Moore Haven and its fuel would arrive by
railroad.

The advanced technology that we plan to use requires
environmentally-preferred coals that are low in sulfur, ash and
chlorine. The FPL Glades Power Park site is adjacent to an
existing rail line. We plan to use the local SCFE railroad and
the CSX and FEC railroads to deliver fuel to the site.


Keeping train traffic delays to a minimum

Regardless of the supplier, we recognize that the community i.
most interested in having us minimize the time associated
with train crossings as well as the number of trains coming
and going. While we aren't in a position to finalize suppliers
or routes until we first earn approval for the new plant, we arc
fully committed to making as little impact on your daily
driving routines as possible.


So, for example, should you encounter a train bound for the
plant, the time you might spend stopped at a crossing would
be between 2 and one-half and five minutes. Those fuel trains
will be made up of approximately 85-125 cars moving at
speeds between 20 and 40 miles per hour. And we expect, on
average, one or two coal trains a day making round trips in
and out of the plant site. Some smaller trains of approximately
40 cars will be needed less often to deliver limestone and
remove marketable byproducts like gypsum.

Also important is that the track to be added at the plant site
will be enclosed completely within the plant property.,

FPL is committed to a long-term partnership with the
communities where our facilities are located. The Glades and
Hendry communities will be no exception. We want our
future neighbors to be involved throughout the planning
stages of this project. If you have additional questions about
potential train traffic locally, please call us at 888-256-2206.

For more information about the FPL Glades Power Park visit
us online at www.FPL.com/gladespower.

We did it, Okeechobee! What a
fun run at the first ever County Fair!
While a lot of our office's activity
was centered on 4-H and the Youth
Livestock Show, we shouldn't for-
get there were a number of brave
souls that displayed their handi-
work in creative exhibits and in the
Horticulture Division.
Today's column gives the
results of the Fair's Vegetable Con-
test, and will highlight a vegetable
related question from one of the
exhibitors. It turns out that a com-
mon weed in one of our local gar-
dens can also be eaten.
Vegetable Exhibit
results
At this year's Fair, we had three
different competitions for local veg-
etable gardentcrs. Te firsi eehibit
category \\as to put together a
table exhibit using a variety of pro-
duce raised by the exhibitor. First
place award went to Sal Varri for his
market basket of various shots and
roots; second place went to Laurie
McClosky's salad green plate and
third place was earned by John
Lane for his market basket of
assortedvegetables.


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA
IFAS EXTENSION
The second exhibit category
was for individual vegetables,
which were evaluated on their
maturity and usefulness. First
place for her head of cabbage
went to Janice Trent; second place
was earned by Sal Varri's unusual
red-meat radish bunch; third
place was earned by Laurie
McClosky's onion bunch.
The final category was the first
year of what will be an on-going list
of our county's largest vegetables.
These records will stand until beat-
en by someone else in a future edi-
tion of this contest. Entries in this
competition are weighed and then
multiplied by an "equalizing fac-
tor" that allows small items to be
compared with bigger vegetables.
Our biggest vegetable this year
was "giant" Green Bell pepper
grown by John Lane. This 9 oz. fruit
(multiplied by 6.3) produced a
"score of 56.7. Second place was
Sal Varri's carrot, tipping the scales
at 12 ozs. (times 2.0) for a score of
24. Our third place winner was Jan-
ice Trent's 2 pound, 14 oz. cabbage
(times 0.3) with a point value of

An edible weed
Sal Varri helped our office with
his donations of vegetables for the
vegetable identification and judg-
ing contest, held last Friday at the
Fair. While I was picking up his
specimens, he presented me with a
bag of unknown greens, and asked
the questions, what is it and can
you eat it?
The plant in question is com-
mon Lambsquarters (Chenopodi-
um album). This annual weed
grows all over the U.S. and is seen
in gardens, lawns and roadsides. It
has sprung up all over his vegetable
garden and competes with the
intended crops for space, water
and nutrients. UF researchers have
determined that commercial let-
tuce yield losses from competition
from this weed could be between
16 percent and 27 percent, depend-
ing on how fertilizer is applied to
lettuce crops.
But here's the rub: The nutritive
value of the succulent green tops
from Lambsquarters are greater
that many common vegetables that
it competes with in the garden. This
is not surprising when you consider
that Lambsquarters is a relative of
spinach, beets and Swiss chard.
Another kind of Lambsquarters, C.

South America for its seed which is
used as a grain product.
As a weed, there are recom-
mendations available for control-
ling this plant in commercial set-
tings. In the home garden the better
approach may be to hoe them out
when small if the goal is to grow
something else. But if you wanted
to try this as a new nutritious green,
be sure to harvest the tops well
before they begin to flower for best
quality. According to one source,
Lambsquarters greens should be
rinsed and the tender leaves can
added to a green salad, or may be
steamed, sauteed or stir-fried.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu. If
you would like to see photos of our
vegetable exhibits or need addi-

Clewiston Museum celebrates Florida heritage month


CLEWISTON Florida has
designated the period March 15
through April 15 Florida Heritage
Month A Celebration of Flori-
da's Spirit. The. goal is to encour-
age a better understanding of
and appreciation for Florida's
history and culture among the
people of our state. This mdnth-
long tribute will heighten aware-
ness of our state's rich cultural
heritage, celebrating its historical
sites, museums, libraries, and
the visual and performing arts.


In observance of this pro-
gram, The Clewiston Museum
will provide a special program
on early Florida ranching featur-
ing Nancy Dale, PhD, published
author and writer. The event will
be at 7 p.m. on Thursday, March
29 in the museum's theater. The
event is free and open to the
public. However, seating is limit-
ed and reservations can be made
by contacting the museum at
983-2879 or via email at clewis-
tonmusuem@earthlink.net.


Dr. Dale will make a short
presentation on the early Florida
cracker cowboys throughout the
central ranching region of South
Florida. The program will
include insights into the families
that comprise the pioneer ranch-
es in the.area and-how they real-
ly lived in those earlier days.
Those days were marked by
open rangelands with no fence
allowed, free roaming herds and
cow hunters who annually
would cover wide expanses of


the state to round up the cattle of
each rancher to drive them to
markets on the east and west
coasts.
Dr. Dale's latest book, Would
Do, Could Do and Made Do, is a
living tribute and memorial to
the lessons inscribed by those
pioneer ranchers for their fami-
lies and for future generations of
Floridians. It tells how these
ranchers lived a unique lifestyle
in a bygone era and also how, in
many ways, their heritage con-


tinues today. Clewiston's Stitt
Family is one of those featured in
the book, as well as Glades
County pioneer rancher Tommy
Bronson, Immokalee's Bobby
Roberts, and Kenansville's Doug
Partin.
Following the presentation,
attendees will be invited to tour
the museum's'exhibit hall and
refreshments will be served. Dr.
Dale will also be available for a
book signing of her new book
and to answer questions.


Other published works of Dr.
Dale are Where the Swallowtail
Kite Soars and The Tattered Flag.

HRMC Foundation House gets a new look


By Glenda Wilson
1-RMC
The Hendry Regional Medical
Center (HRMC) Foundation
House has been receiving quite
a bit of attention lately. The City
of Clewiston, which leases the
building to the Foundation,
decided to take on the project of
beautifying the property. Sean
Scheffler coordinated the efforts,
along with his street department
crew. Also, the Cusas Group,
from CampE-Tu-Makee, assisted
in the landscaping project.
As one can see, the grounds
have a completely different
appearance they are now
beautifully landscaped, with
plants graciously provided by
the Clewiston Garden Club. In
addition, the City has built a
handicapped ramp and replaced
the roof of the building. The

The Hendry Regional Medical Center has been.given a "lift"
with beautiful new landscaping, a new sign, a new handi-
capped ramp, a new roof and other renovations thanks to the
efforts of several local businesses and organizations.
Foundation sign, originally Printing, has been redesigned
donated by David Lyons of Lyons and relocated.


As people are viewing the
recent activity surrounding the
Foundation House, many are
inquiring about what the HRMC
Foundation is all about. The
Foundation's purpose is to raise
charitable funds as a non-profit,
501(c)(3) corporation and to
direct those funds to the special
projects of Hendry Regional
Medical Center. The first project
will be the construction of a new
Emergency Room, Laboratory
and Surgery Suite in Clewiston
as well as an Urgent Care Center
to be located in LaBelle. The
Foundation is comprised of
eighteen members; all are local
community leaders who provide
diversified talents, interests and
strengths to the Foundation. For
more information, call Glenda
Wilson, the Foundation Execu-
tive Director, at (863) 983-2735.

NOTICE OF COMMISSION HEARING AND PREHEARING
FLORIDA PUBLIC SERVICE COMMISSION
DOCKET NO. 070098-EI


PETITION TO DETERMINE NEED FOR FPL GLADES POWER PARK UNITS 1
AND 2 ELECTRICAL POWER PLANT BY FLORIDA POWER & LIGHT COMPANY
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that a hearing will be held before the Florida Public Service
Commission in the above docket regarding the petition of Florida Power & Light Company
(FPL) for determination of need for electrical power plants, at the following time and place:
Monday Tuesday, April 16-17, 2007, 9:30 a.m.
Betty Easley Conference Center, Room 148
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
PURPOSE AND PROCEDURE
The purpose of this hearing will be for the Commission to take final action to determine the need, pur-
suant to Section 403.519, Florida Statutes, for FPL's proposed electrical power plants in Glades County,
Florida. This proceeding shall: (1) allow FPL to present evidence and testimony in support of its
petition for a determination of need for its proposed electrical power plants; (2) permit any intervenors
to present testimony and exhibits concerning this matter; (3) permit members of the public who are
not parties to the need determination proceeding the opportunity to present testimony concerning this
matter; and (4) allow for such other purposes as the Commission may deem appropriate.
The proceedings will be governed by the provisions of Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, Section 403.519,
Florida Statutes, and Chapters 25-22 and 25-106, Florida Administrative Code.
Under Section 403.519, Florida Statutes, the Commission is the sole forum for the determination of
need for the proposed electrical power plants. In making its determination, the Commission must take
into account the need for electric system reliability and integrity, the need for adequate electricity at
a reasonable cost, the need for fuel diversity and supply reliability, and whether the proposed plant
expansions are the most cost-effective alternative available. In addition, the Commission must expressly
consider the conservation' measures taken by or reasonably available to FPL which might mitigate the
reed for the proposed plants and may consider other matters within its jurisdiction which it deems
relevant. The Commission's determination of need for the proposed plants shall create a presumption
of public need and necessity and shall serve as the Commission's report required by subsection
403.507(2)(a)2, Florida Statutes, An order entered by the Commission pursuant to this hearing shall
constitute final agency action.
Only issues relating to the need for the proposed power plants will be heard at this hearing. Separate
public hearings will be held before the Division of Administrative Hearings at a later date to consider
environmental and orher impacts of the proposed plants and associated facilities.
Members of the public who are not parties to the need determination proceeding will have an oppor-
tunity to present testimony regarding the need for the proposed plants. All members of the public who
wish to offer testimony should be present at the beginning of the hearing, 9:30 a.m., Monday, April
16, 2007. All witnesses will be sworn in and will be.subject to cross-examination at the conclusion of
their testimony. By providing public testimony, a person does not become a party to the proceeding.
Anyone wishing to become a party to this need determination proceeding should file an appropriate
petition pursuant to Rule 25-22.039, Florida Administrative Code, with the Director of the
Commission's Division of the Commission Clerk and Administrative Services at the address listed
below. Copies of the petition should be sent by mail to all parties. Those wishing to intervene in these
proceedings, unless appearing on their own behalf, must be represented by an attorney or other person
who can be determined to be a qualified representative pursuant to Chapter 120, Florida Statutes, and
Rule 28-106.106, Florida Administrative Code. Petitions for leave to intervene must be filed at least
five (5) days before the final hearing, must conform with Rule 28-106.201(2), Florida Administrative
Code, and must include allegations sufficient to demonstrate that the intervenor is entitled to partici-
pate in the proceeding as a matter of constitutional or statutory right or pursuant to Commission rule,
or that the substantial interests of the intervenor are subject to determination or will be affected
through the hearing.


Written comments regarding the need for the proposed plants and associated facilities may be sent to
the Commission at the following address:
Blanca S. Bay6, Director

2540 Shumard Oak Boulevard
Tallahassee, Florida 32399-0850
Re: Docket No. 070098-EI
GENERAL LOCATION AND PROJECT DESCRIPTION
FPL's proposal consists of two solid fuel coal-fired generating units, each having summer net capacities
of approximately 980 MW for a combined net capacity of 1,960 MW. The plants are proposed to be
located on a 4,900-acre site property located west of Lake Okeechobee, approximately four miles north-
east of the town of Moore Haven in an unincorporated area of Glades County, as well as associated
electric transmission facilities located in Hendry County, Palm Beach County, and Broward County.
The proposed in-service dates for the proposed units are June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014. FPL indicates
that it intends to pursue permitting on a schedule to allow for earlier in-service dates of late 2012 or
early 2013 for unit 1, and late 2013 or early 2014 for unit 2, if possible.
PREHEARING CONFERENCE
A prehearing conference will be held at the following time and place:
Thursday, April 5, 2007, at 9:30 AM
Room 148, Betty Easley Conference Center
4075 Esplanade Way
Tallahassee, Florida
The purpose of this prehearing conference is: (1) to define and limit, if possible, the number of issues;
(2) to determine the parties' positions on the issues; (3) to determine what facts, if any, may be stipulated;
(4) to dispose of any motions or other matters that may be pending; and (5) to consider any other
matters that may aid in the disposition of this case.

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
First rays: of a March sun
streaked through the bare cypress
across the pond in sharp unbro-
ken slices. The water was still and
the sky an endless dome of cobalt
blue. Mirrored trees appeared as
fine etchings in the still pewter
water, and I watched in awe trying
to take pictures in my mind that
would not fade.
Suddenly, a long, raucous
squawk broke the morning's
silence followed by a loud watery
plop! Ducks! Two of them hit the
water- not quietly.
One was pure white, the other
gleaming black. They lost no time
in swimming off, almost touching
each other. Too small and slender
to be muscovies, too large to be
the ones simply known as native
Florida ducks. However, not
knowing their true name did not
detract from their grace and beau-
ty.
They played around on the
pond for half the day, dipping and
diving and at times they seemed to
be splashing their wings just for
the fun of it. Now and then they'd
climb up the bank on the east side
of the pond and peck furiously in
the short, tough grass. But not for
long, back they sauntered to the
water.
As the day wore on to dusk,
they stayed close in to the pond's
south end where the papyrus
grows thick and tall alongside a

stand of blue and white Florida
flags. They're not blooming yet
but the buds are fat and long it
won't be long.
As dusk faded and the moon
rose in a sea of silver moonlight I
tried to see if they were spending
the night on the pond. But shad-
ows were far too many and too
close together to distinguish any-
thing definitely.
The night was still and cold
with not even a little breeze. Fog
rose thick and heavy over the
pond at first light, so much so that
nothing could be seen except the
long, sharp spears of the papyrus.
But then, in only minutes,
there was their raucous voices
again as they swam straight to the
middle of the pond where in only


seconds they silently dived so
deep the water remained unbro-
ken. In a few minutes they sur-
faced, took a long look around
from side to side, then spread and
flapped their wide wings splash-
ing the water into big droplets


over each other, and flew off into
the blinding sunrays through the
big swamp.
Now it's late in the day, the sun
has slipped below sight on one
side of the world as the moon is
rising in silver splendor on the
other.
I kept hoping for one more
glimpse but there was no sign of
them, so turning from the pond I
began to retrace my steps to the
house. Just then, there was a faint
raucous sound coming from
across the south meadow. Turn-
ing quickly in the direction of that
sound, there they were flying
back toward the pond. Watching
in wonder, I saw them descend-
ing toward .the water as they
cleared the tall stands of papyrus.
And then in the next instant as I
glanced at the water, there were
their twin shadows following
faithfully as they lowered them-
selves even more over the still
water and made a perfect landing.
I could only hope they'd spend
another night.


Lake
Continued From Page 1
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District has offered near-
ly $1 million to fund a vegetation
sediment survey of the area and
to remove and dispose of phos-
phorous laden sediment outside
of the lake. Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion will offer technical assistance
and construction coordination.
The location encompasses 400
acres of willows, cattails and sedi-
ment. The water management
district estimates that 200 of these
acres can be restored with the
current funding.
Glades County will oversee all
aspects of sediment removal, sur-
veying, permitting, material test-
ing and disposal. Existing county
equipment will be used. The
county will seek bids before the
next meeting on March 26 and
then further discuss the project.


The day after the meeting
County Commissioner Paul Beck
was consulted for comments. He
lives in Lakeport and the restora-
tion area is about a mile from his
home.
Mr. Beck mentioned that the
cleanup might help local busi-
nesses that cater to fishermen and
tourists.
"Fish like a nice clean, sandy
bottom," he said. "It is going to be
a tremendous fish magnet."
Paul Beck also talked about
how realistic the funding amount
will be, and if it is a sufficient
amount to get the job done.
"Close to three quarters of all
money spent will be on trucking,"
Mr. Beck said. "I would like to see
realistic costs of removal."
The large project is time-sensi-
tive and all parties involved want
to begin removal soon because
the sediment is exposed due to
low lake levels.

with 17,000 acres of environ-
mentally sensitive land, and with
the planning of an 11,000 resi-
dence community that is com-
pact and self-sustaining. This
will be a rural town and open in
mid 2007.
Ms. Jenkins referred to the
near vanishing natural resources
that the state, various groups
and individuals aim to protect.
She said, "How will we be able
to save the land when we cannot
afford to buy all the land?"
It is not possible for govern-
ments to buy all the public land
that needs to be protected. RLS
allows a way for the private
landowners to help save natural
resources and help rural
economies without local taxpay-
ers paying the bills. The private
owners of the land will still pay


taxes. If the land was bought by
the government, it would not be
required to pay taxes.
Since RLS plans for several
decades it will retard urban
sprawl which inevitably gobbles
up agriculture lands. It proposes
to keep agriculture flourishing
and protects agriculture related
jobs. It will prevent existing
small towns from losing their
rural character, because the
new, compact mixed use com-
munities will create a new tax
base and employment.
County workshops and
neighborhood meetings will be
planned before Rural Land Stew-
ardship is approved. The first
workshop will be April 23.

mine how dry the soil is. It is
ranked from 0-800, with the high-
est number being the absolute
driest. Glades County ranked with
a 703, and as of March 12 that
was the driest in the state.
On Wednesday, March 14,
Mary Lois Biggs was answering
the phones at the fire depart-
ment on S.R.78. She is a para-
medic and volunteer fire fighter
with the Moore Haven Volunteer
Fire Department. At that time the
volunteers were trying to con-
tain a blaze off of C.R.74.
"Fires have been popping up
everywhere," she said.
Ms. Biggs also mentioned
additional help that they receive,
and said, "We are working with
the division of forestry and being
aided from other counties
depending on the location of the
fire."
Most of the local fires do not
receive much publicity with the
exception of the wildfire on an
island in southwest Lake Okee-
chobee that began Feb. 24. It


was quite large, burning approx-
imately 39,000 acres and carry-
ing smoke to the east coast of
Florida.
Jeff Harrod is the fire chief for
the Palmdale Volunteer Fire
Department, which is part of the
West Glades District. On Thurs-
day, March 15 they went out on
five calls to oust wildfires.
Many of the fires are just acci-
dents. He has asked people to
realize that Glades County is 75
percent wooded, and that many
families have their homes nes-
tled in these woods. He asked for
drivers to not carelessly throw
out a cigarette along the high-
way, or drive an ATV across dry
grass where the red hot muffler
can ignite it.
He spoke by phone on March
16 about the efforts of the volun-
teers. Mr. Harrod said, "They are
just killing themselves."
When asked about the mone-
tary cost to the.volunteers and
the county, he replied, "What lit-
tle pay there is covers the gas.
Most of them lose money
because they are self-employed,
but out of the goodness of their
hearts they want to help the


kItchen


rimb..


community."
Bob Jones, public safety
director, would like to caution
the public.
Mr. Jones said, "Glades Coun-
ty has a mandatory unregulated
burn ban in place until further
notice." The Division of Forestry
must issue you a permit before
you can begin any burn.
Melissa Yunas, of Okee-
chobee Division of Forestry,
reported that there have been
ten fires in Glades County since
March 9 covering 225 acres.
None of them have been on
structures or homes. However,
she asked that local homeown-
ers make their dwellings as safe
as possible.
Ms. Yunas said, "People can
protect their homes by extend-
ing a 30 foot buffer zone around
them and keep it free of highly
flammable vegetation," and she
said, "Clean pine needles, leaves
and twigs from your roofs and
rain gutters because burning
embers can be blown up to a
mile away."

Is your property considered 'Firewise' newszap.com
Comne w Lns z ______l oles


By MaryAnn Morris
1NI
From Jan. 1 to Feb. 28, there
were 604 wildfires in Florida and
58,355 acres have burned. If those
acreage numbers are something
you can't get your mind around,
think of it as slightly over 91 square
miles: a strip of land one mile
across and 91 plus miles long.
Should Floridians be "protect-
ed" from the burning of the land?
Why is there so much here burning
in Florida?
"Protection" is a relative term
and the first rule of protection is to
realize that you live in Florida. Flori-
da is different. Its seasons are differ-
ent. You have "wet" season and
"dry" season within natural cycles
of drought years and wet years. Its
land is open and flat.
"Every two to five years the
open prairies and pine flatwoods
will naturally burn," says Dale Arm-
strong, Senior Forester at the Okee-
chobee District of the Florida Divi-
sion of Forestry. Mr. Armstrong
covers six counties: Okeechobee,
Highlands, Indian River, Martin, St.
Lucie and Glades Counties.
"There are things all Floridians
should know and practice here,
where fire is a natural part of life,"
he continued.
During the dry season there is
little rain, little humidity in the air
and windy/breezy days. All of this
makes for dry land. In January
there was frost, which killed a lot of
green vegetation, turning it brown
and dry. The sandy soil, with no
moisture added, has dried out
deeper and deeper and deeper.
Native plants, adapted to the
wet/dry season cycles are not
growing, many are not green at all.
These conditions have turned
ordinary grasses and underbrush
pastures, woods and unkempt
vacant lots into dry tinder where a
spark from a vehicle, machine or
careless windblown ash, will ignite
and spread, fanned by the breezes
that sweep across.
Florida's ecology depends on
fire to sweep clean the soil so seeds
of new plants can sprout to provide
forage for the deer, rabbits and
other animals that depend on
nature to feed them. When there is
food, they come and keep Florida's


ecology diverse and healthy.
Before Florida became so
populated, thousands, perhaps
millions of acres naturally
burned each year, but more and
more acreage is bounded by
houses, and less and less acreage
burns naturally.
"This has allowed the under-
brush to become high and thick, to
the point of being almost impene-
trable. Without a great deal of
awareness, alertness and care it
can be a hazard to lives and proper-
ty," said Mr. Armstrong.
Protect your home
from wildfire
Over the past 50 years, more
and more Floridians have moved
out of our cities to build homes
and businesses in outlying fringe
areas technically known as the
wildland/urban interface. In fact,
today almost a third of Florida's
population lives in interface areas
where homes, sheds and barns
intermingle with forests and wild-
lands. Residents here, however,
usually don't realize they may live
too "close to nature"; they may, in
fact, be "Living on the Edge" of a
wildfire disaster.
On average, Florida experi-
ences the second highest num-
ber of wildfires in the nation.
During dry years, Florida experi-
ences severe wildfires wild-
fires that destroy homes, disrupt
people's lives and impact the
State's economy.
The simple truth is that few fire
departments have adequate
resources to protect every home in
the wildland/urban interface.
Homeowners must become
partners in fire protection. But
there is also an important role for
architects who design homes,
builders, insurance agents, elected
officials, planners, and educators
- everyone who helps shape our
communities.
Areas where homes and forests
meet or mix together are the "wild-
land/urban interface." Homes in
these locations need special con-
sideration.
You and your neighbors can
take action to protect your com-
munity from wildfire dangers.
Understand the factors that can
make a neighborhood either less


or more vulnerable to a wildfire
with the Hazard & Wildfire Risk
Assessment Score sheet.
Is your home
'Firewise'?
Learn about the two most vul-
nerable parts of a home, the
"home ignition zone" for wildfires
and defensible space.
How homes can be designed,
built and maintained to withstand
wildfire.
A "defensible space" of at least
30 feet in any direction around your
home increases the likelihood that
a home will survive a wildfire even
in the absence of firefighters. Learn
how to utilize these landscaping
techniques online at http://www.fl-
dof.com/wildfire/index.html.
Your community or neighbor-
hood can help with local preven-
tion and reduced losses to wild-
land/urban interface fire by
participating in this national pro-
gram.
Older, even wood-frame home
in high wildfire hazard areas can be
modified and made Firewise by
creating a "defensible space"
around the structure for wildfire
protection without losing the
"woodsy" look and feel.
"Clean the debris out of your
gutters and off your roof," said Dale
Armstrong.
Much of what is known about
protecting homes from wildland
fire is based upon the work of Jack
Cohen, a Fire Research Scientist at
the U.S. Forest Service Fire Lab in
Missoula, Mont. Mr. Cohen has
been studying wildfires for almost
30 years. His research and field
investigations support some inter-
esting explanations for home loss-
es associated with wildland/urban
interface fires. Mr. Cohen found
that most willdland/urban inter-
face homes are lost because of
ignitions associated with the two
most vulnerable parts of a home:
The roof, and gutters; and,
The area immediately sur-
rounding the structure.
Mr. Cohen's research results
indicate that home ignitions usual-
ly occur over relatively short dis-
tances tens of yards, not hun-
dreds of feet from little things
associated with either:
Fire brands landing on and


around the structure, or
Flames from slow-moving,
low-intensity surface fires contact-
ing flammable portions of the
structure.
This means that the homeown-
er can play a significant role in
reducing home losses from wild-
fires by reducing fuels and through
careful landscaping in what Cohen
calls the "home ignition zone', an
area that extends outward from the
home 100 200 feet in all direc-
tions. Research has shown that the
home ignition zone principally
determines the potential for home
ignitions during severe wildfires.
Case studies indicate that the
most critical area is a zone of
"defensible space" within 30 feet of
the structure.
Maintaining a lean, clean and
green landscape within 30 feet of a
structure can make a significant
difference in whether it survives a
wildfire. The important thing is that
action must be taken before wild-
fire threatens.
Lean only allow small
amounts of flammable vegetation;
Clean no accumulations of
dead vegetation; and,
Green plants are healthy and
green.
Reducing fuel within the defen-
sible space means creating a land-
scape that breaks up the continuity
of brush and other vegetation that
could bring wildfire in contact with
any flammable portion of the struc-
ture.
This may involve:
Eliminating any flammable
vegetation in contact with the
structure;
Thinning out trees and shrubs
so there is 10 to 15 feet between
the tree crowns;
Pruning tree limbs to a height
of 6 to 10 feet;
Replacing highly-flammable
landscape material with plant
materials having a higher water
content;
Replacing flammable mulch
adjacent the structure with gravel
or rock;
Eliminating "ladder fuels"
near the structure that might carry
a surface fire to the roof or eaves.
Fire is a natural part of our
Florida ecosystems. It is not a
matter of if we are going to have
wildfires, but when will we have
wildfires and at what intensity.
Homeowners must assume a
major role in wildfire protection
by taking action to reduce the
ignitability of their homes before
the threat of a wildfire.

Having a blast
Seniors from the Glades Diamond Housing Development in Belle Glade are enjoying a
picnic at the complex under the sun. The annual picnic is sponsored by coordinators
Alfonzo Funderburk and Marcus Saddler. The seniors were treated to barbeque ribs, pota-
to salad, baked beans and drinks.


Wildfire danger increases with lack of rain


The risk of wildfire continues
to increase as recent rainfall pre-
dicted for our area left on aver-
age, a mere quarter of an inch.
Dryness as measured by the
KBDI (Keetch-Byram Drought
Index) is well above normal lev-
els for this time of the year. The
Index runs from zero 800 with
zero indicating the ground is
fully saturated. 800 indicates dry,
desert like soil conditions. The
average KBDI for the local dis-
trict which includes Lee, Collier
and Hendry County, currently
stands at 652.

Many areas in the district
including Lehigh Acres in Lee
County are already above 700.
Once the KBDI climbs above
normal levels wildfires spread
more quickly, become more
intense and are more difficult to
control. Dryness will continue to
increase unless significant rain-
fall is received something that is
not expected until the summer
rain pattern begins.
The number of wildfires in
the district has increased sharply.
During the first half of March, the
DOF district has responded to 31


wildfires throughout this 3 coun-
ty area. This compares to our
historical average of 29 wildfires
for the entire month of March.
This time of the year, wildfire's
are caused by people, either
because of carelessness or start-
ed intentionally. Everyone needs
to use extreme care every time
they use anything involving a
flame or use any type of machin-
ery that can cause a spark:
grinders, welding equipment,
cars parking on grass and don't
take your ATV off trail into the
rough, they can spark, too.

MHHS student recognized for academics


The United States Achievement
Academy has announced that Jes-
sica Leigh Echols from Moore
Haven has been recognized for
academic achievement as a United
States National Honor Student
Award winner.
Jessica, who attends Moore


Haven Senior High, will appear in
the United States Achievement
Academy's Official Yearbook,
which is published nationally.
"Recognizing and supporting
our youth is more important than
ever before in America's history.
Certainly, United States Achieve-


ment Academy winners should be
congratulated and appreciated for
their dedication to excellence and
achievement," said Dr. George
Stevens, founder of the United
States Achievement Academy.
The USAA National Honor Stu-
dent Awards provide honor stu-


dents with many benefits and serv-
ices and is a great tribute to a stu-
dent's dedication, talent and ability.
Jessica is the daughter of Rus-
sell and Marla Echols of Moore
Haven. The grandparents are Sam
and Polly Williams of Eueaula, Ala.,
and Barbara Stanley of Lusby, Md.


The proud parents, Curtis and
Delma "Sand" Bryant would like to
congratulate their daughter,
Curneisha Bryant Terry, who is
graduating with a Doctorate of
Audiology degree from the Univer-
sity of South Florida on May 5, 2007.
Ms. Terry recently completed her
residency at Womack Medical Hos-
pital in North Carolina. Ms. Terry
has completed several internships,
including James Haley Veterans
Hospital, Central Florida Speech &
Hearing Center and HearUSA. Ms.
Terry has done extensive research
at Bay Pines Veterans Hospital,
researching the relationship
between temporal resolution tasks
and their application to real-world
speech in noise perception. This
research is currently being
reviewed for future publishing.
Ms. Terry attended Rosenwald
Elementary, Lake Shore Middle
and graduated from Glades Central
High School in 1999. In 2003, she
graduated Magna Cum Laude from
the University of South Florida with
!a Bachelor of Arts in Communica-
tion Sciences and Disorders with a
concentration in Hearing Science.
While attending USF, she was
consistently on the President's List,
a George Jenkins Scholar and was
even awarded a student fellowship
to attend a Summer Research Pro-
gram at the University of Illinois at
Urbana-Champaign. In 2001, she
became a member of the Zeta
Upsilon Chapter of Alpha Kappa
Alpha Sorority, Inc. Special thanks
to her husband (Johnny Terry),

Good manners are going to the dogs


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
It was a long hard day. I was
dragging until I reached the front
door. Pepper, my Sheltie-hound
mix greeted me
with excite-
ment. As I
plopped down
in the easy
chair, she rested
her head on my
lap and nuzzled
me. It wasn't
long until my
hand was inch- John
ing toward the Hicks
dog and I began
to stroke her fur. Within minutes I
was feeling better. What is it about
dogs that evokes such a positive
response? How are they able to
provide such comfort and reassur-
ance?
I firmly believe that God put
dogs on earth to remind us of some
important truths. What He taught
us is not only reinforced by Scrip-
ture, but by simply looking at the
family pet. The point? Perhaps we


should try a little harder to be
"more dogly" in our daily lives in
order to be more Godly. Here are
10 dog-truths that might help us:
1. Greet loved ones with wag-
ging tail. Nothing is more important
than feeling loved and there's no
creature that does it better than a
dog. The wagging tail affirms that
this is where we belong. This is our
home, where we live, where we're
safe and where we're loved.
2. Eat with gusto and enthusi-
asm. Dogs eat with a passion, lick-
ing the dish clean until every last
scent of gravy is gone. Dogs know
that eating is a celebration of life.
Breaking bread together is holy. To
nourish the body is not a chore, but
a sacrament. At meals, animosities
are dissipated, barriers are broken
down and friendships are renewed
and strengthened. So, eat with
gusto. Enjoy all the flavors and
spices of creation.
3, On hot days, drink lots of
water and lie under a shady tree.
Relax, slow down and enjoy. Give
yourself a time out. Opt out, unplug
and get lazy.
4. Run, romp and play daily.


Physical exercise is as important for
the soul as it is for the body. No dis-
ciple of Christ can be as faithful and
effective when the body is run
down and health is unnecessarily
poor. When we learn how to play
and stretch and get in some exer-
cise we'll feel better from the inside
out.
5. Be loyal. Loyalty is a good
thing, and if dogs are nothing else,
they are loyal. Loyalty is a critical
element of discipleship, for it
speaks to our relationship with our
spouse, our vocation, our commu-
nity, our friends, and our God.
6. When you're happy, dance
around and wag your tail. Thank-
fulness and celebration are impor-
tant dynamics for successful and
healthy living. Joyfulness is a gift we
give ourselves that enables us to
affirm the essential goodness of
life. Even when adversity strikes,
our inner joy helps us maintain our
perspective and carries us through
the low moments.
7. If someone is having a bad
day, sit close by and nuzzle gently.
We all have bad days. We all need
encouragement and affirmation.


When we are depressed, it takes
only a quiet word, a gentle touch to
bring us around.
8. No matter how harshly you're
scolded, don't pout run back and
make friends. Carrying grudges
makes life a grind. Make friends
and keep them. Overlook faults
and assume the best. Don't keep a
scorecard of rights and wrongs.
Don't take offense.
9. Avoid biting when a simple
growl will do. We do not need to
injure others by what we say or do.
We can be strong with love; firm
with kindness.
10. Bark with your buddies.
Barking is an act of commonality.
Barking says we belong in this
together. We are one.
Think about the kind of ministry
we would have in our churches,
homes, schools, and communities
if we showed doglike qualities like
loyalty and obedience, and offer
comfort and a sense of well-being.
What if we were consistently more
humble, more loving, more grate-
ful, more joyful and more kind-
hearted? Perhaps it is time we go to
the dogs!


There should be communion every Sunday!


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Acts 20:7 says, "And upon the
first day of the week when the
disciples come together to
BREAK BREAD, Paul preached
unto them..."
Here we have an example and
pattern authority for the weekly
observance of the Lord's Supper.
If it were left entirely up the
account of Jesus instituting the
Lord's Supper (Matthew 26:26-
29), we would be at a loss as to
knowing the frequency we
should partake of this supper.
However, Jesus promised the
Apostles that not only would the
Holy Spirit bring all things to their
remembrance (John 14:16), he
would guide them into all unre-
vealed religious truth (John
16:13). Now in Acts 20:7 the
church at Troas, operating under
the very sight of an inspired apos-
tle, came together on the first day
of the week "to BREAK BREAD."
It is incidental that the apostle
Paul was there and preached; the
purpose of their coming together
was to have the Lord's Supper.
Every week has a first day and is
implied that this was their cus-
tomary practice. Under the Old
Testament the Jews were com-
manded to "Remember the Sab-
bath day, to keep it holy." They
didn't ask, "Which Sabbath (sev-
enth) day?" Every week had a
seventh day and they understood
this to mean they should keep
every Sabbath unto God. This
same is true as we read Acts 20:7
of the Lord's Supper on the first
day of the week.
We are not left to this Scrip-
ture only for evidence of the
practice of weekly communion;
it is evident in 1 Corinthians. The
church at Corinth was a problem
church rented asunder by party-
ism, immorality, and the abuse of
divine worship. It seems they had
reduced the Lord's Supper to a
drunken feast. Notice: "When ye
come together therefore into one
place, this is not to eat the Lord's
Supper. For in eating every one
taketh before other his own sup-
per: and one is hungry and
another drunken" (I Cor. 11:20-
21). The Amplified New Testa-
ment's application of verse 20 is
a little plainer. "So when you
gather for your meetings, it is not
the supper instituted by the Lord
that you eat." In other words,

they were supposedly observing
the Lord's Supper, but had
reduced it to a common meal
and a drunken feast. What we
wish to emphasize is that they
were doing this "WHEN" they
came together; in other words,
every time they were regularly
assembled. They were keeping
the Lord's Supper, although in a
greatly degenerated fashion,
every time that the church met.
When was the regular meeting
time? If we can establish this, we
can know the frequency of the
Lord's Supper observance. 1 Cor.
16:2 gives the answer: "upon the
first day of the week.'
It is also interesting to note
and not without significance,
that the Lord's Supper was
observed on the day the church
was established the day.of Pente-
cost (Acts 2). On what day of the
week was this Jewish holy day
celebrated? Check Leviticus
23:15, 16. Seven Sabbaths fol-
lowed the Passover and the next
day after the seventh Sabbath
was. Pentecost (50th). Thus, it
was celebrated on the first day of
the week. The church had its
beginning on this day and the
church first observed! the Lord's
Supper on this day. Having refer-
ence to their worship on this day
the record reads, "And the con-
tinued steadfastly in the Apostle's
doctrine and fellowship, and in
BREAKING OF BREAD and in
prayers" (Acts 2:42).
Furthermore, it is a fact from
outside history that the early
church observed the Lord's Sup-
per EVERY Lord's Day and com-
petent scholarship (even denom-
inational scholarship) is agreed
to this. The following as exam-
ples will illustrates the latter.
These are comments made by
denominational scholars (in
their well-known commentaries)
on Acts 20:7, explaining why the
church at Troas came together
on the first day of the week.
ALBERT BARNES (Presbyter-
ian): "Evidently to celebrate the
Lord's Supper...It is possible that
the apostles and early Christians
celebrated the Lord's Supper
EVERY LORD'S DAY."
ADAM CLARK (Methodist):
"To break the Eucharist, as the
Syriac has it: intimating by this
that they were accustomed to
giving the Holy Sacrament on
EACH LORD'S DAY."


In the light of this array of
information, we are made to ask
why modern "churches" are not
having the Lord's Supper every
Lord's day. Obviously this is a
neglected Scriptural teaching
which has been replaced by tradi-
tion. But, as we seeking unre-
servedly to return to the divine


pattern to be simply the Lord's
"New Testament" church, we will
have this supper each Lord's day
as the very center of our worship.
Faithful Christians will be there to
remember the supreme sacrifice
made for their salvation...to wor-
ship the Lord in the way he
would have themworship.
