Fla. Panther killed on I-4


Tagged panther's
territory included
Glades County

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY An
endangered Florida panther was
killed last week when it was hit
by a vehicle on Interstate 4.
Most of the Okaloacoochee
Slough State Forest is located in


southeastern Hendry County off
C.R. 832 it is notably home to
the Florida panther which is an
endangered species in the south-
ernmost region of the peninsula.
The Florida Wildlife Commis-
sion (FWC) closely monitors the
big cats by tracking their where-
abouts with radio transmitters.
The group had tracked a panther
that was killed March 21.along
Interstate 4.
The male panther killed
March 21 along 1-4 was believed


to be born in Okaloacoochee
about four years ago. He became
known as FP130 and was tagged
and fitted with a radio tracking
device.
FP130 had wanderlust and
lived up to the expectations of his
species by setting out to claim his
own territory and look for a
mate. The panther roamed
throughout the Florida plains,
going largely unnoticed by the
human population a panther
sighting is rare.


Traffic Safety: Fair educates residents

FHP Auxiliary Troop F participated in the safety fair in Perry Park on March 17. They
were available to talk to children and remind them to be safe when they walk to school,
ride bikes or buckle up as car passengers. From left to right are: Capt. Bob Rice, exec-
utive officer; Lt. John Prescott, recruiter; Maj. Ed Cleveland, commander; Sgt. Dave
McGee, Clewiston unit and the little lady is Aubrey Reynolds. For more photos of this
and other local events online, go to http://photos.newszap.com.


John and Mary Lois Biggs of Moore Haven Volunteer Fire Department donate their time
to the safety fair organized by the Glades County Community Traffic Safety Team. They
grilled hamburgers and hot dogs at Perry Park on Saturday, March 17.

a Wi Child identification kits for
Parents were available to
."- families at the safety fair on
Saturday, March 17 in
downtown Moore Haven at
.. Perry Park. Lucy Papp, cen-
'ter, worked this booth. She

'ist for the Florida Highway

the left and Chelsea Jones
is on the right.


Normally, the endangered
population ranges south of the
Caloosahatchee River, but FP130
struck out north of the river to
claim the 200 or so square miles
of territory that a male panther
requires.
According to Darrell Land,
FWC's panther team leader,
Glades County was usually the
center part of FP130's range.
"Actually, he was there a year
or more using Fisheating Creek,
Lykes Brothers property and the


Babcock Ranch; sometimes
shooting well beyond into the
north but always returning to his
center in Glades County," said
Mr. Land.
Last year the big cat was
tracked to an area near High-
lands Hammock State Park
which is west of Sebring. Then in
November 2006, the batteries on
his radio collar went dead. On
March 21, FP130 was found dead

Goodwill



to construct



a new store


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Many
people in Glades County have
missed shopping for bargains
and vintage items at the Good-
will store.
The Goodwill store building
was in was damaged by Hurri-
cane Wilma in 2005, and they
had to close up shop. Soon, the
thrift store will return to Moore
Haven, and this time around it
will be better, store managers
said.
Brian Itzkowitz, representa-
tive of Southwest Florida Divi-
sion of Goodwill, and Steve
Bowen, construction contrac-
tor, announced to the city on
March 20 that a site has been
proposed for the construction
of a new Goodwill store at the
corner of U.S. 27 and 10th


.Street.
Planning for the store is in
preliminary stages. The pro-
posal will be brought to the
county's board sub-committee,
and then a date for ground-
breaking will be set.
Mr. Itzkowitz mentioned
that even though Goodwill has
stores in LaBelle and Clewis-
ton, it is important that Glades
County benefit from their
organization too.
Goodwill Industries is a non
profit organization and 95% of
revenue generated in the stores
helps to support programs for
people with disabilities and
other disadvantages.
The new building will be
larger because it will contain a
retail store, donation center
and career resource center.

Ruth Joanne Short
Ruth Joanne Short was born
to Henry and Della Boudin Short
in San Angelo, Texas on July 18,
1910. She was preceded in death
by two older brothers, Walter
and Hendry, and followed by a
sister, Addie, six years later. Her
father died when she was six
years old.
She was voted most popular
senior girl in high school,
majored in journalism at the
University of Arizona and was a
college tennis champion.
Despite a setback incurred when
she refused to divulge the
sources who gave her informa-
tion offensive to the University's
administration, she graduated
from college during the depres-
sion.
Ruth began teaching in the
communities of Welton and Gila
Bend, Ariz. She also put her
younger sister through college.
She owned and managed a gas
station outside of Gila Bend. She
met Ted Irvin, her future hus-
band in Gila Bend, and they
were married in Ajo, Ariz. in
1934. They had two daughters,
Dorothy in 1939 and Margaret in
1943.
The family moved to Belle
Glade in 1946 when Mr. Irvin got
a job as foreman of the painting
crew at the Okeelanta Sugar
Mill. Mrs. Irvin was asked by
Principal Don Hobson if she
would teach at Belle Glade Ele-
mentary, where she became a
first grade teacher. The family
moved to West Palm Beach for
two years, where Mrs. Irvin
taught first grade at Central Ele-
mentary and she returned to


Belle Glade in 1950 where she
taught first grade at Osceola Ele-
mentary. She received her Mas-
ter's Degree in Psychology at
Florida State University in the
1950s by attending courses for
three summers. She became
principal at Osceola Elementary
and remained there until Osceo-
la Elementary was phased out in
1969. She then became principal
of Gove Elementary and Gove
Exceptional Student Center and
held that position until July of
1991. She retired with 55 years of
service in public education, at
the age of 81.
Mrs. Irvin started the first pre-
Kindergarten classes in the State
of Florida. She made many con-
tributions to migrant education
and early childhood education
and her schools won numerous
awards for excellence.
Following her retirement
from public education, Mrs.
Irvin devoted much of her time
to her second passion, manag-
ing the family house, a rental
property, in Ft. Myers Beach.
Prevented by the depression
from becoming a journalist, Mrs.
Irvin became a local historian,
writing and publishing the histo-
ries of Glades pioneers. She was
an active member of the Glades
Historical Society.
Her husband preceded her in
death in 1979. She leaves two
daughters, Dorothy and Mar-
garet Irvin; four grandchildren,
Samir Hanif, Hilary Thompson,
Benjamin McCollam and Vicki
Spavento and four great grand-
children, Kevin and Keane
McCollam, Amina Hanif and
Christina Leyva.
Mrs. Irvin was hospitalized in
early March following a brief ill-
ness and died in her sleep, at
home, at the age of 96 on March
19,2007.
A memorial service will be
held Saturday, March 31, at 1
p.m. at Community United
Methodist Church, 401 S.W First
St., Belle Glade. All arrange-
ments are under the direction of
Glades Funeral Chapel, Belle

KENNETH P. KIRCHMAN
SKenneth P. Kirchman, age 72,
died in his Winter Park home on
-" Tuesday, March 13, 2007.
SA Florida native, Mr.

Glade area and had made cen-
m tral Florida his home for more
than 50 years.
He was a prominent Orlando
businessman and founder of
Kirchman Corporation, Mr.
Kirchman founded Kirchman
Corporation, a privately held
banking software innovator,
nearly 40 years ago in Altamonte Springs.
He founded Florida Software in 1968 on a shoe string but with the
big vision of providing advanced software that would automate the
millions of transactions a commercial bank handles. He was regard-
ed as a pioneer in this industry and his early efforts were instrumen-
tal in the development of the packaged banking software industry.
Though well-educated and world-traveled, Mr. Kirchman was
known by friends and employees as the quintessential "Florida
Cracker." He was an avid outdoorsman and participated regularly in
international recreational shooting sports in Argentina, Denmark,
England, Ireland, Scotland and Spain. He and wife Deanna spent
much of their leisure time at Lake X, their 10,000-acre ranch, which
is also a wildlife refuge, south of Orlando.
Mr. Kirchman was known by many as a generous benefactor. In
1979, he contributed the Stetson University's first $1 million gift to
establish the Kirchman Chair of Humanities. His active and commit-
ted interest in the community led him to serve on Stetson
University's Board of Trustees and serve as President of the Alumni
Association. He was also former Director of Public Radio and
Television of Central Florida. He served on former Florida Governor
Bob Graham's Economic Development Task Force and was a Trustee
of Florida House in Washington, D.C.
Mr. Kirchman attended university at Stetson where he earned a
B.S. in Mathematics. He held a business degree from Harvard
Business School. He was awarded an Honorary Doctorate of Law
(LLD) from Stetson. He served as a First Lieutenant in the Guided
Missile Branch of the U.S. Army and, prior to founding Kirchman
Corporation, held positions with Sperry Rand Corporation, The
National Cash Register Company and General Computer Services.
Mr. Kirchman is survived by his wife, Deanna Pitman Kirchman
and niece Victoria Pitman Smith. He is also survived by his three
children and a son-in-law, Kevin Kirchman, Karen Kirchman,
Kimberly (Mark) Fehl. He had two sisters and brothers-in-law,
Arlene (Jack) Griffith and Jane (Neil) Linden and two brothers and
sisters-in-law Ronald (Linda) Kirchman and Arthur (Glenda)
Kirchman. In addition, he is survived by four grandchildren,
Chantell Calivas, Brent Calivas, Kaiya Fehl and Marin Fehl; 11 nieces
and nephews along with 16 grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
A memorial service was held on Tuesday, March 27 at the family
ranch to celebrate Mr. Kirchman's life for family and friends. The
family requests that no flowers or donations be sent. Condolence
cards can be addressed to the family and sent to P.O. Box 2519,
Winter Park, FL 32790.

Letters to the Editor


Routes for power lines
It is important to respond to
the questions raised by Mary Cos-
mos in her letter to the editor that
was published on March 15. Dur-
ing the presentations I made at
the Glades County Informational
Meeting Feb. 20 and the Hendry
County Workshop Feb. 27, I used
the same two maps to discuss
transmission line routes associat-
ed with the FPL Glades Power
Park in both presentations. One
map shows the alternate routes
we analyzed during the planning
stage. The other map shows the
final corridor we selected to sub-
mit to the state during the certifi-
cation phase. Different maps
were not used at the two presen-
tations as Ms. Cosmos asserts. My
presentation is a matter of public
record and can be viewed by any-
one at www.myglades.gov.
The process for siting a power
plant as outlined in Florida's
Power Plant Siting Act includes
identifying a route for associated
power lines. As such, a multi-dis-
ciplinary team at FPL (including
myself) first, evaluated all the
alternatives routes including valu-
able input from the community
and regulatory agencies and sec-
ond, chose a preferred corridor.
This corridor was submitted in
December 2006 in an application
as required in the Power Plant Sit-
ing Act. We will continue to work
with the Glades/Hendry County
communities as we refine the
exact location of the final right-of-
way within the preferred corridor
where the transmission lines
would be built after the project is
approved.
While the transmission lines
are my area of expertise, I can
assure you the proposed plant is
not 50-year-old technology, as
suggested by Ms. Cosmos letter.
The FPL Glades Power Park will
use the most modern, proven
technology available. FPL has a
premier environmental record
and image. As Ms. Cosmos com-
piles her research paper, I encour-
age her to contact FPL directly for
the most current and accurate
information available.
Sincerely,
MarthaMcNeal,
McNeal Consulting
Services Inc.

In Response to Wendell
Taylor's statement
I don't empathize with Mr.
Taylor's impeccable logic, as he
pleads his case for struggling
Glades County, that the pro-
posed FPL Power Park is our
only salvation. He views this as
our lotto ticket to prosperity.
While I agree that things are"
tight" economically at present,

'il provide a right to reply to those we write
about.
To treat people with courtesy, respect and
compassion.


the current situation is probably
better than it has ever been here
in rural, seemingly under popu-
lated Glades County. Most of the
economic crises or problems of
Glades County fall squarely on
the shoulder of failed leadership
and thinking.
One needs look no further
than the lost negotiations with
Waste Management who not
only offered to take and resolve
our landfill problems but offered
to build a recycling plant. Or we
can look at the current construc-
tion and debris landfill (c+d)
that will bring in a paltry sixty
thousand dollars a year to the
county. The combined loss in
revenue from these two project
mishaps alone is in the millions.
These both are examples of how
not to run a county.
Nowhere in his presentation
did Mr. Taylor mention the con-
tinued residential growth of the
county- and it is growing, (espe-
cially in the Muse area). This is
based on the ever increasing per-
centage of building permits
being issued. Along with the
growth comes increased ad val-
orem for the county. What about
the newly enacted impact fees?
This is all additional income to
the county. The opening of the
new INS facility will alleviate
much of the problems for the
Sheriff's Dept. and also provide
additional revenue for the coun-
ty.
,Unfortunately, there are many
that believe that the present sta-
tus of Glades government is
presided by a greedy, take what
you can get mentality, regardless
of the ethical, moral, or environ-
mental consequence it may
have. Has it become the mission
of the county manager and staff
to bring in money at all costs?
While they were touting "glori-
ously natural Glades" along with
other Heartland counties as part
of a visioningg" process, they
were actually scheming to bring
in a huge polluting power plant.
What is next? Lets see, we have
a landfill, and a possible power
plant that covers both soil, water
and air contamination. The sad
truth is, if you offer enough
money to Glades County, they
most likely will entertain almost
any idea.
Is the county manager's posi-
tion similar to that of a sales
manager? Is it to "sell" the coun-
ty to potential incoming cus-
tomers? As long as he is in favor
with the Board of County Com-
missioners- (who he directly
works for), and brings in cash to
the county coffers, he is also per-
sonally rewarded financially.
That is often how a county man-
ager's salary is calculated- by
how many dollars he can gener-

surmise that all of the surround-
ing county governments have a
different version of science also?
There has never come any
good (that I can recall) from a
government entity whose budg-
et will automatically quadruple
with regard to fiscal responsibili-
ty. This could indeed be the case
(from 6 to 24 million) if the
Glades Power Park windfall
becomes reality. You can be
assured however Glades County
residents of one thing- they will
figure a way to spend it! Sure,
there is always the initial and
immediate promise of lower
taxes to the average homeown-
er, a reduced millage for several
years. Then with a massive
increase of income to the coun-
ty, it is always accompanied with
a proportionate increase in the
size of government, and its
spending. You will see: new
county vehicles will be pur-
chased, new equipment, new
services, new positions created
(yes, improved fire depart-
ments). Before you know it,
spending is equal to or greater
than income. The ever growing
cycle continues. This is best
exemplified by every municipali-
ty and county that ever existed in
Florida. It will only take a few
years for the millage rate to go
right back up for the average Joe
homeowner. It is a lie to the resi-
dents, that the power plant will
be the savior in the county. Long
after the sweet smell of cash is
gone, the dragon will continue
to exhale poison over your chil-
dren and grand children for forty
years to come.
In short, the greatest recipient
and those who will benefit the


most from the huge power plant
"windfall" is county government
and its extended family.
As an ex Glades county
politician revealed and I kid you
not: "I only lost the election by
thirty five votes, and those thirty
-five were the only people that I
was not related to in one way or
another" and was darn proud of
it! This is unfortunately the sad
state of small Glades County pol-
itics. This is how elections are
won and business is done. It is a
popularity contest, no qualifica-
tions needed; only long time
locals need apply. Until we can
get some new innovative faces,
college educated individuals to
step forth and serve in county
government; we are doomed to
more of the same and continued
failures.
.Maybe, we should feel sorry
for Mr. Taylor after all.
Hang on Glades County,
regardless of what the current
county manager proclaims bet-
ter days are on the horizon, and
they will be from solid planning,
not snap economic decisions.
Sustainable growth and infra-
structure will be created from
"smart growth", not immediate
cash in hand gratification from
polluting industry. There will be
a change in thinking as para-
digms change every where, even
here in tiny Glades County.
Thinking "green" will be the
future of this county, country
and the planet, you just haven't
been able to figure it out yet, and
that Mr. Taylor you can put in the
bank.
Sincerely,
Steve Hein- Muse Resident
Save It Now, Glades!


Glades County now has 14 sex offenders


According to Glades County
Sheriff's Captain Darryl Lewis, the
number of sex offenders/preda-
tors living in Glades County has
increased recently from five to 14.
These persons listed as sex
offenders by the Florida Depart-
ment of Law Enforcement have
been convicted of sex crimes
either in Glades County or other
areas and are currently under
jurisdiction of Glades County
Sheriff's Office. Under the law,
there are two classes of sex crimi-
nals: offenders and predators.
The definitions are found of the
FDLE Sexual Offender Web site:
http://offender/FDLE.state.fl.us.co
m.
PREDATOR To be designat-
ed as a predator, the subject must
have been found by the court to
be a sexual predator. Florida law
requires a written court finding
for sexual predator status. Sexual
predator designation only applies
to sex offenses committed on or
'after October 1, 1993. In addition,
the subject must have been con-
victed of either one first-degree
felony sex crime, or two second
degree felony sex crimes. In the
latter situation, the second
offense must occur within 10
years of the previous offense, con-
viction, or release from the sanc-
tion of the court, whichever is
later. Additionally as of July 1,
2004, anyone civilly committed
under the Florida Jimmy Ryce
Sexually Violent Predator Act
must also register as a sexual
predator. See F.S. 775.21(3) for
additional information regarding
sexual predators.
SOFFENDER The sex offend-
er designation applies to any list-
ed sex offense, regardless of the
date the offense was committed,
for which an offender is being
released on or after October 1,
1997 from the "sanction
imposed" for the offense, or, is
currently under the care, custody,
or control of the Florida Depart-
ment of Corrections (DOC).
"Sanction imposed" includes, but
is not limited to, a fine, probation,
community control, parole, and
conditional release, control
release or incarceration. See F.S.
943.0435(12) for additional infor-
mation regarding sexual offend-
ers.

Company tactics has


government illusion


TALLAHASSEE Attorney
General Bill McCollum recently
announced that his office has
filed a lawsuit against a South
Florida company based on alle-
gations that the company
implies an affiliation with state
government to solicit funds from
business owners. National Com-
panies Register Corp. solicits
individuals around the country
who have recently formed a cor-
poration in their state or who
have legally registered a ficti-
tious name.
Advertisements sent out by
the company soliciting payment
for access to the company's web
based directory appear to be an
invoice for approximately $600.
The advertisements are
designed such that a consumer
would believe payment of the
fee is part of the procedure of
registering a company for busi-
ness. To further give the-illusion
of being an official document,
the document used to contains a
reproduction of the flag for the
state in which the addressee
lived.
Investigators with the Attor-
ney General's Economic Crimes
Division contacted several con-
sumers who had paid the fee to


the company and were unaware
that they had paid a private com-
pany for an alleged service.
Instead, they believed the pay-
ment was a requirement to reg-
ister their company. The Attor-
ney General's Office has already
filed a lawsuit against the com-
pany's owner, Bernd Taubert,
for similar business practices
associated with Federated Insti-
tute for Patent & Trademark Reg-
istry, another company owned
by Taubert.
Mr. McCollum cautioned busi-
ness owners against paying
invoices sent out by National
Companies Register Corp. and
encouraged individuals to check
with the Florida Department of
State if they have questions
about any of the requirements
associated with forming a corpo-
ration or registering a fictitious
name. He also asked any Floridi-
ans who believe they may have
been victimized by either Nation-
al Companies Register Corp. or
Federated Institute for Patent &
Trademark Registry to contact
the Attorney General's Office by
phone at 1-866-9-NO-SCAM (1-
866-966-7226) or online at

Norovirus safety reminder issued


TALLAHASSEE As part of
an ongoing effort to help Floridi-
ans stay healthy, Florida Depart-
ment of Health (DOH) Secretary
Ana Viamonte Ros, M.D., M.P.H.
reminds all Floridians to take the
necessary precautions to avoid
preventable illnesses. One such
illness is norovirus, which is
commonly called the "stomach
flu." While symptoms are simi-
lar to those associated with the
flu (influenza), norovirus is not
related to the flu. Norovirus is
one of several hundred causes of
food poisoning and can easily be
transmitted person to person.
Norovirus is highly conta-
gious and may cause vomiting
and diarrhea. Most people begin
to feel better within one or two
days and have no long term
health effects.
Thorough and frequent hand-
washing is the key to preventing
the spread of gastrointestinal


infections like norovirus," Deputy
State Health Officer Bonita
Sorensen, M.D., M.B.A. said. "This
simple step can help Floridians
avoid numerous illnesses and
ward off preventable sickness."
Floridians can decrease their
chance of coming in contact
with noroviruses by following
these preventive steps:
Wash hands frequently,
especially after going to the
bathroom, changing diapers,
before eating and prior to
preparing food
Carefully wash fruits and
vegetables, and cook foods thor-
oughly before eating them
Thoroughly clean and dis-
infect contaminated surfaces
immediately after an episode of
illness by using a bleach-based
household cleaner.
Immediately remove and
wash clothing or linens that may
be contaminated with the virus


after an episode of illness (use
hot water and soap).
Flush or discard any vomit
and/or stool in the toilet and
make sure that the surrounding
area is kept clean.
Persons infected with
norovirus should not prepare
food while they have symptoms
and for three days after they
recover from their illness. Food
that may have been contaminat-
ed by an ill person should be
thrown away.
DOH promotes and protects
the health and safety of all people
in Florida through the delivery of
quality public health services and
the promotion of health care stan-
dards. For more information
regarding disease prevention,
please visit www.doh.state.fl.us.
For additional information, visit
www.cdc.gov and select
"Norovirus Infection" from the A-
Z index.


United Way surpasses campaign goal


FORT MYERS Larry Hart,
Chairperson of the 2006-07 Unit-
ed Way of Lee, Hendry and
Glades Counties campaign, is
pleased to announce that the
2006-2007 Campaign has been a
great success. As volunteer Cam-
paign Chair, Mr. Hart has over-
seen the efforts of more than
1,200 volunteers as they worked
to exceed this year's fundraising
goal of $6.6 million. The final
amount raised is $6,903,088.
That is $629,000 more than last
year's campaign and a 10 per-
cent increase.
"I personally want to thank all
the caring individuals who made
the important decision to con-
tribute to United Way," said Mr.
Hart. "Our community continues
to amaze me with their over-
whelming generosity. As a result,
our community will be a better
place for all of us to live and work."
"We are very proud to be part

of a caring and generous com-
munity," said Cliff Smith, Presi-
dent of United Way of Lee,
Hendry and Glades Counties.
"This is the 14th consecutive
year that our United Way has
reached goal and the ninth year
in a row that we have had a dou-
ble digit increase in giving. We
are pleased that we will not only
be able to fully fund our 67 part-
ner agencies, but we will be able
to support them with additional
funds so that they can help even
more of our friends, neighbors,
families and co-workers right
here in our community."
The funds raised during the
United Way Campaign will sup-
port the work of 67 agencies and
120 programs that help our
friends, neighbors and co-work-
ers right here in our community.
Agencies like Abuse Counseling
Treatment, Salvation Army, Chil-
dren's Home Society, Boys and


Girls Club, and LARC serve a
diverse range of needs in our
community such as nurturing
youth and children, strengthen-
ing families, improving health
and independence for the sick
and elderly, helping the disabled
reach their potential and reach-
ing people in crisis. Last year the
67 United Way Agencies helped
over 300,000 people in the com-
munity. Because of the dedicat-
ed and large number of volun-
teers, United Way can keep
fundraising costs extremely low
and make sure that donations
are being spent effectively with
the most impact in the commu-
nity. All of the money donated to
United Way stays here in the
community and helps people
right here in our community.
For more information please
call United Way of Lee County at

TALLAHASSEE Thou-
sands of handprints created by
children in Southwest Florida
will hang from the Capitol
Rotunda in Tallahassee during
Children's Week March 25-30.
Children in local.child care
centers designed brightly-col-
ored paper cut-outs of their
hands that will be displayed as
symbolic reminders to elected
officials to address legislative
issues that will enable children
to grow and develop to their
fullest potential.


The handprints were collect-
ed by Child Care of Southwest
Florida, Inc. for the Early Learn-
ing Coalition of Southwest Flori-
da, which will transport the
handprints to Tallahassee and
coordinate the local Children's
Week celebration.
Child Care of Southwest Flori-
da, Inc., is now celebrating its 40th
anniversary of providing child care
services to families throughout
Southwest Florida. The agency
works in partnership with the
Early Learning Coalition of South-


s week

west Florida, which coordinates
all early childhood education
efforts in the Lee, Collier, Glades,
and Hendry counties.
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, con-
ducts and coordinates training
for child care workers, and
administers the federal and state
child care assistance program
for working parents who cannot
afford child care.


FORT MYERS In honor of its
40th anniversary of providing child
services, Child Care of Southwest
Florida, Inc. (CCS), is searching for
children who were cared for by the
non-profit agency in the late 1960s
or early 1970s for a "reunion" party.
"These are the first children
who received services from the
agency and we thought it would be
great to have them reunite for an
afternoon of fun," said President &
CEO Rhea B. Mike of CCS.
Anyone who believes they
were in one of the early classes of
children cared for by CCS, may
contact Sherl Hackney at (239)
278-1002. A party to commemo-
rate the 40th Anniversary and
reunite the early students will be
held on Saturday, May 12, at Cen-

Florida Power & Light Company (FPL) and its parent company,
FPL Group, have long believed that meeting customers' needs for
reliable electricity at stable prices must go hand-in-hand with
protecting the environment now and in the future.
The FPL Glades Power Park will be an advanced clean coal
technology power plant in Glades County, Florida. As FPL moves
ahead with this project, the company will proceed with the same
smart and forward-thinking decisions that have earned respect
from a variety of key industry observers.
For example, FPL Group is ranked #1 among electric and gas
utility companies in FORTUNE magazine's "America's Most
Admired Companies," receiving top marks across all categories,
including innovation and social responsibility. In addition, the
company has received, among other awards: the electric industry's
top honor, the'Edison Award; a Global Energy Award as "Renewable
Company of the Year;" and the Service One" Award for top-rated
customer service.
In January 2007, FPL Group became a founding member of the
U.S. Climate Action Partnership (USCAP). This alliance of


U.S.-based leading companies and environmental organizations plant in the nation and will be designed to incorporate even
is calling on the federal government to approve mandatory more advanced emissions-reduction technologies as they

The FPL Glades Power Park will help secure Florida's energy future,
be protective of the environment and good for Glades County.
* Helping Secure Florida's Future FPIs customers benefit from
reliability that is significantly better than the national average.
In striving for an uninterrupted power supply for its customers
now and in the future, FPL must continue to diversify the
sources of fuel to generate electricity. And the new state-of-the-
art power plant in Glades County will help enhance fuel diversity.
* Protective of the environment FPL Group is the world leader in
renewable power generation. And in Florida, nearly three-quarters
of the power FPL generates comes from clean-burning natural
gas and emissions-free nuclear energy. A small portion of FPLs
power is currently generated using renewable fuels, and the
company continues to encourage the development of renew-
ables. FPL Glades Power Park will be the cleanest coal power


* Good for Glades County The FPL Glades Power Park will
employ an annual average of 1,600 workers during five years of
construction, and 180 full-time permanent workers. The plant
will also contribute an average of more than $21 million annually
in property taxes to support schools and government services in
Glades County. Resolutions of support for the project have
already been issued by the Moore Haven City Council, Glades
County Commission, Glades Economic Development Council,
School Board of Glades County, Hendry County Economic
Development Council, Clewiston Chamber of Commerce and
Florida's Heartland Rural Economic Development Initiative.
FPL is working every day to ensure that it provides its customers
with reliable electric service at stable prices while being proactive
in protecting the environment and contributing to local
economies where it has facilities. For more information on FPL
and the future FPL Glades Power Park, please visit www.FPL.com.

The death of the endangered
cat underscores the importance
of saving some of the state's natu-
ral areas for wildlife habitat.
Currently, 258,633 acres in
Glades County, owned by Lykes
Bros. Inc. is under consideration
for Rural Land Stewardship.
This program provides incen-
tives for landowners to maintain
rural land use for sustaining sensi-
tive ecosystems and habitats as
well as agriculture use. There is
the possibility that such a large
tract of land could foster a corri-
dor for wildlife such as the Florida
panther, officials hope.

Handle eggs with proper precautions and care


I love eggs. They are truly one
of nature's wonders. They are
inexpensive and an amazing
source of nutrition. A large egg
only has about 70 calories.
Eggs are a good source of
protein. They contain thiamin,
riboflavin, folate, Vitamin A and
Vitamin D. They also contain
choline, which is necessary for
good brain function.
Eggs come in a natural con-
tainer that is pretty effective. But
some food safety precautions are
still needed. The following infor-
mation on egg food safety came
from the Egg Nutrition Center.
What does the date on the
egg carton mean?
Egg cartons with the USDA
grademark must display a
"Julian date." the date the eggs
were packed. Although not
required, they may also carry an
expiration date beyond which
the eggs should not be sold, but
are still safe to eat. On cartons
with the USDA grademark, this
date can not exceed 30 days
after the eggs were packed in
the carton. Depending on the
retailer, the expiration date may
be less than 30 days. Eggs
packed in cartons without the
USDA grademark are governed
by the laws of their states.
How long are eggs safe to eat
after purchase? '
Fresh shell eggs can be stored
in their cartons in the refrigera-
tor for four to five weeks beyond
the carton's Julian date with
minor loss of quality. Once an
egg begins to age, it loses mois-
ture through its porous shell and
begins to dry. The membranes
that hold the egg structure begin
to loosen and the yolk may not
be anchored in the center of the
white once the egg is broken. An
older egg would be most appro-
priate for a mixed dish, a batter
or a hard cooked egg which
should be easier to peel than a
freshly laid egg.
How long are eggs that have


A '' q ".
Healthier "
Life '


with Katrina Elsken

been refrigerated, safe to eat?
Raw eggs maintain their
freshness for four to five weeks
after purchase if kept refrigerat-
ed continuously.
How long are hard cooked
eggs that have been refrigerated,
safe to eat?
A hard cooked egg can safely
be refrigerated for up to one week.
How does Salmonella infect
eggs?
Salmonella bacteria are
found in the intestinal tracts of
animals, birds, reptiles, insects
and humans: Salmonella may be
found on the outside of the egg
shell before the egg is washed or
it may be found inside the egg if
the hen was infected. It is esti-
mated that one egg in 20,000
eggs may contain Salmonella
which is a 0.005 percent con-
tamination rate. Eggs contain
natural antimicrobial substances
in the egg white, and all eggs are
washed and sanitized before
they are packed. Egg recipes
properly prepared in individual
servings and promptly eaten are
rarely a problem. Inadequate
refrigeration, improper handling
and insufficient cooking are all
factors that have contributed to
disease outbreaks. Salmonella is
destroyed by heat. Eggs that
have been handled and cooked
properly should not cause
human illness.
What is pooling and why is it
not recommended?
The pooling of eggs, which is
a common practice where eggs
are broken out of their shell,


mixing egg white and yolk, then
held together in large quantities.
This practice removes the egg's
natural barriers and creates a
nutrient-rich medium that is
ideal for bacterial growth. Lack
of washing hands and cutting
boards with warm soapy water
is another contributing factor in
approximately one third of the
U.S. food borne illness out-
breaks reported by the Center
for Disease Control and Preven-
tion (CDC).
How should eggs be refriger-
ated?
Refrigerate raw shell eggs in
their cartons on the middle or
lower inside shelf, not on the
door, and away from any meat
that might drip juices or any raw
produce that might contact
eggshells. Cover or wrap well
any egg mixtures or leftover
cooked egg dishes. For all per-
ishable foods, including eggs
and egg containing dishes, allow
no more than two hours at room
temperature for preparation and
serving, 30 minutes to one hour
when it's 85 degrees Fahrenheit
or hotter without refrigeration.
I just realized I left the egg
carton on the kitchen counter
overnight. Are the eggs safe to
use?
The general rule is that if food
items are at room temperature
for more than two hours, the
safest thing to do is to discard the
product. If you leave eggs any-
where that is not refrigerated, the

best thing to do is throw those
eggs away and buy a new carton.
What is an adequate temper-
ature to cook an egg?
Egg white coagulates
between 144 and 149 degrees
Fahrenheit, egg yolk coagulates
between 149 and 158 F and
whole eggs between 144 and
158 F. Plain whole eggs without
added ingredients are pasteur-
ized but not cooked by bringing
them to 140 F and maintaining
that temperature for three-and-
one-half minutes. According to
the FDA Food Code, eggs for
immediate consumption can be
cooked to 145 F for 15 seconds.
If the eggs are to be used in a
recipe with other food items,
dilute the eggs with liquid or
other ingredients, such as milk,
or sugar (at least /4 cup liquid or
sugar per egg as in custard) and
cook the egg mixture to 160
degrees Fahrenheit, which will
destroy harmful bacteria in a
few seconds. Adequate cooking
brings eggs and other foods to a
temperature high enough to
destroy bacteria that might be
present.
Can shell eggs be pasteurized
or irradiated to destroy Salmo-
nella?
A processor can pasteurize
shell eggs if FDA has approved
the process. Pasteurized shell
eggs are available in some areas
in the U.S. Shell eggs have
recently been approved for irra-
diation by the U.S. Food and

Drug Administration but are not
yet available.
Are egg products pasteur-
ized?
All egg products are required
by law to be pasteurized.
Approximately one-third of all
eggs produced in the U.S. today
are *broken and further
processed to make egg products
which are sold as retail or food-
service items or ingredients for
commercial food manufactur-
ers. These may be whole liquid
egg, egg whites, or egg yolks,
and may be liquid, frozen or
dried. The safety of egg products
is regulated by the Food Safety
Inspection Service of the USDA
and is ensured by mandatory
pasteurization to destroy poten-
tially harmful pathogens. Egg
products are readily available for
food service facilities to use and
offer a convenient alternative to
using raw shell eggs when large
quantities are needed.
What should you consider
when purchasing eggs?
Always buy eggs from a
refrigerated case. Choose eggs
with clean, uncracked shells.
Don't buy out-of-date eggs. The
USDA grade shield on the carton
means that the eggs were grad-
ed for quality and checked for
weight under the supervision of
a trained USDA grader. State
agencies monitor compliance
for egg packers who do not use
the USDA grading service.
Is the appearance of an egg


related to food safety?
Variation in egg color is due
to many factors. A cloudy white
is a sign that the egg is very
fresh. A clear egg white is an
indication that the egg is aging.
Pink or iridescent egg white indi-
cates spoilage and should not be
consumed. A rupture of one or
more small blood vessels in the
yolk may cause blood spots at
the time of ovulation. It does not
indicate the egg is unsafe to eat.
The color of the yolk varies in
shades of yellow depending
upon the diet of the hen. If she
eats plenty of yellow/orange
plants the yolk with be a darker
yellow than if she eats white
cornmeal, a colorless diet. A
green ring on a hard cooked yolk
is result of overcooking and is
caused by sulfur and iron com-
pounds in the egg reacting on
the yolk's surface. The green
color can also be caused by a
high amount of iron in the cook-
ing water. Scrambled eggs held
too long on a steam table or at
too high a temperature can also
develop a green tint. The green
color is safe to eat.
How is the egg industry work-
ing to promote egg safety?
Egg industry programs start by
keeping breeder flocks Salmonel-
la free. The National Poultry
Improvement Plan, a joint pro-
gram between the industry and
the U.S. Department of Agricul-
ture, is a model program for pre-
venting breeder stock infection.

Big 0 Birding Festival comes to Glades County


Festival continues
through Sunday
GLADES COUNTY Writer,
naturalist and activist Susan
Cerulean is teaming up with nature
photographer John Moran for a
special keynote presentation Satur-
day, March 31, during the sixth
annual Big O Birding Festival, slated
for Friday, March 30 to April 1, in
Moore Haven.
The catered keynote dinner will
follow a book-signing reception at
6 p.m. at the Clubhouse at Glades
Resort off S.R. 80 near LaBelle.
Ms. Cerulean's latest book is a
nature memoir entitled, "Tracking
Desire: A Journey After Swallow-
tailed Kites," published by the Uni-
versity of Georgia Press in March
2005. Besides offering a pilgrimage
through the much-reduced home-
land of the swallow-tailed kite, the
book weaves science, family histo-
ry and interior musings with the
fabric of the kite's life history.
Tracking Desire was named Edi-
tors' Choice by Audubon maga-
zine (March 2005).
With the decision to push the
festival back to late March, early
April, which coincides with the
return of the swallow-tailed kites
to nest at Fisheating Creek, select-
ing a keynote speaker enamored
of the bird and the area was a no-
brainer, according to Glades
County Economic Development
Council Director Tracy Whirls,
who chairs the Big O Birding Festi-
val committee and works with the
Hendry County Tourism Develop-
ment Council and Clewiston
Chamber of Commerce each year
to organize the joint Glades Coun-
ty/Hendry County event.
Sharing the keynote spotlight
will be renowned nature photogra-
pher, writer and editor Moran,
whose latest book, "Journal of
Light: The Visual Diary of a Florida


submitted photo
Several popular tours, including the ever popular "Owl Hoot," and a "Regional Birds" Tour
led by Audubon's Dr. Paul Gray, as well as a tour of Diner Island Wildlife Management Area
remain on tap, for the sixth annual Big O Birding Festival, slated for Friday, March 30-April 1,
in Moore Haven.


Nature Photographer," a 20-year
collection of photos and essays,
was published by University Press
of Florida in 2004.
"Ms. Cerulean spent a. great
deal of time working with
researchers tracking the swallow-
tail kites roosting at Fisheating
Creek back when Lykes still con-
trolled the wildlife management
area and speaks fondly of ,Glades
County residents she met during
her visits," Ms. Whirls said. "Simi-
larly, Mr. Moran visited Fisheating
Creek last summer to take pictures
for a calendar project. This special
collaboration is a must see for nat-
uralists, photography enthusiasts


and birders alike."
The double header keynote
address is the centerpiece of a
weekend planned to please bird-
ers, naturalists and art lovers alike.
Kicking off the lecture series to
be held at the Doyle Conner Build-
ing in Moore Haven during the Big
O Birding Festival, Friday, March 30,
is renowned bird artist Lydia C.
Thompson. A native of Natchez,
Mississippi, Ms. Thompson began
her studies of art, birds and nature
along the banks of the
Mississippi. She earned her Bache-
lor of Arts Degree from Mississippi
State University in 1976, and after
several years of extensive traveling


and continued studies, she settled
on St. Simons Island, Ga. One of the
most recognized and loved artists in
the coastal area, Lydia is also a pop-
ular columnist for the "Jekyll Gold-
en Islander," and executive director
for the Georgia Colonial Coast Bird-
ing and Nature Festival.
Aided by a bald eagle, burrow-
ing owl, caracara and other birds of
prey native to the region, Lynda
White of the Audubon Birds of Prey
Center, will give a presentation on
the Center's Eaglewatch volunteer
citizen scientist program at noon
on Saturday, March 31. Eagle
Watch is designed to educate vol-
unteer participants in general eagle


nesting biology, applicable laws,
the identification of nest threats,
monitoring techniques and the ver-
ification of previously unrecorded
active eagle nests. This data is com-
piled and used to assist the state's
Mid-winter Annual Bald Eagle Nest-
ing Survey as well as the U.S Fish
and Wildlife Service.
.Wrapping up the Big O Birding
Festival lecture series, Mark Kiser,
Birding Trail Coordinator for the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conserva-
tion Commission, will give
a special "mini keynote" pres-
entation on the Great Florida Bird-
ing Trail, at noon Sunday, April 1,
before leading adventuresome
birders on a birding by canoe visit
to Fisheating Creek campground
that afternoon.
The stellar cast of speakers
will augment a series of tours
built around the real stars of the
Big O Birding Festival-the more
than 300 species of birds which
flock to Hendry and Glades
County each spring.
"Historically, birders had to
choose between attending lectures
and attending tours, which went on
simultaneously," Ms. Whirls said.
"This year, we will have birding
tours in the morning, followed by a
lecture with lunch, followed by an
afternoon tour, followed by dinner."
Several popular tours, including
the ever popular "Owl Hoot" and a
"Regional Birds Tour" led by
Audubon's Dr. Paul Gray, as well as
a Tour of Diner Island Wildlife Man-
agement Area remain on tap, while
a tour of the Hendry County STA-5
with Hendry-Glades Audubon has
been added this year, along with
the guided bird by canoe excur-
sion. Transportation will be provid-
ed to each of the tours, as well as
the keynote dinner on Saturday.
The annual "Arts and Crafts"
Festival at the Doyle Conner Build-
ing, which opens Friday afternoon
and continues through Sunday, will

Pahokee Track Program looks for big season Sports in Brief


By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE For Pahokee
Girls Track Coach Cathy Sieder
and Boys Track Coach John
Ford, this season is to them
about the girls and boys teams
reaching their maximum poten-
tial.
Both coaches said that the
teams will be working together
this season, something that not
all programs are able to do.
Coach Seider said that her
goal for the girls' team is to be
competitive throughout the sea-
son.
Her team is small this season,
with only nine girls in competi-
tion. However, Coach Seider
said that the girls are young and
will hold their own.
A track coach since 1993,
Coach Seider expects her girls to
come to practice everyday and
work hard so it will pay off dur-
ing their track meets.
The coach also said that their
hard work translates off the field
as well.
"Our girls are role models in
school and on the field," said the
girl's coach.
Monshakeria Young, one of
the nine athletes that are in com-
petition, echoed the sentiments
of her fellow teammates.
"Our goal is to go to the state
meet and do our best in each
event that we qualify in," said
Ms. Young.
Here are three athletes to
look forward to this season:
Hentoya Parker, a fresh-
man, will be competing in the
4x400 and 4x800 relay teams, as
well as the 800 meter races


INI/Naji Tobias
Pahokee Boy's Track Coach John Ford said that he predicts
Chiquita Smith, an eighth grade track athlete, will be the
track athlete of the year by 2010.


Sophomore Adrianisha
Seurry will be participating in
the 4x100 and 4x400 relay
teams, as well as the 400 meter
races.
Rickura Lendale, who is a
sophomore, will focus on
throwing the shot-put in her
meets.
All three girls said that they


want to make to the state finals
in all of their events.
Coach Ford said that he
expects his boys to reach their
individual levels of success. The
boys' coach said that he wants
the athletes to beat their person-
al best times, meet by meet.
"As a former professional ath-
lete, I know that success doesn't


come in one day," said Coach Ford.
The Pahokee boy's track
coach, who has been coaching
for 11 years, said that being
mentally tough will enable the
boys to be focused throughout
the season.
"One thing that works for me
is that the mind will last a lot
longer than the body in battle,"
said Coach Ford.
Here's a look at three athletes
in competition:
Senior Dwight Bentley said
that he aims to get better in his
speed and conditioning as the
season goes along. He will be
participating in the 400 meter
races, as well as being part of
the 4x100 and 4x400 relay
teams.
Martavious Odoms, a jun-
ior, said that he hopes to
improve in all facets of track this
season. He will be competing in
the 100 meter races, as well as
joining Mr. Bentley in the 4x100
and 4x400 relay teams.
Dmitri Benoit, who is a sen-
ior, said that he hopes to focus
on mastering his throwing tech-
niques and staying conditioned
to make great throws in compe-
tition. He will be throwing in the
shot-put and discus events
throughout the season.
Coach Ford said that he
wants the boys to exhibit dedi-
cation, determination and disci-
pline. He said that it will go a
long way toward winning and
achieving success in the sport.
"A collective of small victories
equals success," said Coach
Ford.

New weight record in

A new Bass Busters Tourna-
ment record was set by Jimmie and
Jared McMillian of Belle Glade,
with a one-day total of 39.61
pounds on the second day of the
tournament as well with 64.93
pounds with 10 fish caught for the
two-day total.
The McMillians weighed in their
largest bass caught during the two-
day tournament held on March 24
and 25, at 9.48 pounds. Others in
the remaining fish catch weighed
8.15 lbs., 8.9 lbs., 8 7 lbs., 7.59 lbs
and 6.83 lbs. Congratulations for an
outstanding job and for winning
the $5,100 prize.
The next Bass Busters Super
Buck Tournament will be held on
April21 and 22 in Clewiston.
Why wait, join the
adventure race
Some people have remarked
that they would like to join the
Adventure Race at the Black Gold
Jubilee, but they are not in shape.
However, if you can ride a bike, run
3-5 miles at any speed and canoe if
the lake is high enough, you qualify.
Remember the raft races? They
weren't about athleticism. People
got stuck in the middle of the canal
and some rafts actually sunk, but
those were the good times. They
were about fun and that's exactly
what the adventure race is all about.
So, find a team of two father
and son, mother and daughter or
three, or even go it alone on the
morning of April 21. Try some-
thing new at the Black Gold
Jubilee. To enter, register at
www.torryisland.com or call

dation in 2004. The foundation's
primary goal is to expand educa-
tional and life opportunities for
underprivileged youth.
The Anquan.Boldin Q81 Foun-
dation carries the mission
through scholarship funds,
awarded yearly to help graduating
students attend college and create
a brighter future for themselves
and their families, according to
the foundation organizers.
Andre Russell, the marketing
director for the Anquan Boldin
Foundation, said that Mr. Boldin


annually donates $10,000 to his
alma mater, Pahokee High
School. According to Mr. Russell,
Mr. Boldin also makes donations
to Glades Central High School.
During the autograph session,
scheduled to be held April 5, from
5 to 6 p.m. at Pahokee High
School, fans will get a chance to
see the football players, including
Mr. Boldin and other players
attending.
A celebrity basketball game
will be held at 6:30 p.m. in the
high school gymnasium, with


NFL stars Larry Fitzgerald, Byron
Leftwich, Eric Green, Edgerrin
James, Devin Hester and many
others to participate in the event.
"For every parent/guardian in
the Glades area, they should take
the opportunity to attend the Q-
Fest with their children," said Mr.
Russell. "I want the youth to get
the full benefit of the true mean-
ing of stewardship."
The next day, on Friday, April 6,
beginning at noon, there will be
an event entitled "Fun-Day-In-
The-Park," to be held at the Martin


Luther King Jr. Park in Pahokee.
The gala will include some of
the NFL stars, as well as live enter-
tainment, food and drinks, con-
test giveaways, face paintings and
more, according to the organizers
of the Anquan Boldin Foundation.
Some of the event sponsors
include Coca-Cola and Schu-
macher Automotive.
There is limited seating and
gates will be closed after the
capacity of the gym is filled. For
the autograph signing and the
celebrity basketball game, visitors


should plan to arrive before 5
p.m.
"Last year, it was good," said
Tammy Jackson, with the Anquan
Boldin Foundation. "This year, it
will be better."

Palm Sunday, also April Fool's Day Area Church News in Brief


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Palm Sunday is the beginning
of a very special week in the
Church calendar: Easter Week.
For Christians it .A *"
is a time to
recount the
great events -
that have '"
changed the
world.
It is a time
of triumphal
entry into
Jerusalem for Samuel S.
Jesus, then a Thomas
last supper
with His disciples, an arrest and
trial, then being crucified and
buried, but that isn't the end. That
Sunday, He appears and suddenly
the triumphal entry that led to a
tragedy and death is a triumph
after all.
Sometime back, I heard of a
janitor in a restaurant who every-
one regarded as being "slow."
Every now and again, a well-to-do
businessman would come to
have lunch with his friends. He'd


call the janitor over and hold out
his hands with two coins; a nickel
and a dime. He'd say "Look, you
can pick one and have it." The
janitor would look and pause,
and then pick up the nickel.
The businessman would laugh
with his friends and explain "He
thinks because the nickel is bigger
it's worth more!"
One customer got the janitor
aside and said "Look, they're
laughing at you because you take
the nickel and it's worth less. Why
don't you surprise them one day
and take the dime?" The janitor
replied "Because the first time I
take the dime, he'll never let me
take one any more."
The janitor saw beyond the
businessman all of the time; the
story of the week coming is see-
ing beyond the tragedy, the injus-
tice, the sinful nature of people,
the cruelty of the world and see-
ing what God saw. The triumphal
entry into Jerusalem by the Lord
and His disciples was a triumph
after all. Just when those who
would have gotten rid of Jesus
were about to celebrate, the Lord
appeared and it was their "tri-
umph" that was a defeat.


This year Palm Sunday comes
on April 1 April Fool's Day!
There is something appropriate
about that! The "joke" is on those
who thought they knew how to
get rid of their problem, on those
who would mock and scorn,
those who were so sure they were
"right" and those who would try
to do away with the Lord who
loved them in spite of it all. The tri-
umph-tragedy-triumph-after-all.
So many of the great things in
our lives are like that too. The "tri-
umph" of a marriage, and then
one day the honeymoon is over,
and then working through really
getting married, and then the tri-
umph of a true love far beyond
the early infatuation there's a
Holy Week and Resurrection
story too.
Many who begin careers with
idealized views of being great suc-
cesses in their fields, and then
learning to cope with all of the
things that come up, and then
dealing with all of the distractions
and detours that go with it, and
being the professional in spite of
all of the things that would side-
track along the way. Many begin
their journey in faith with great


ideals, only to have a "dark night
of the soul" and then keep at it in
spite of questions and doubts,
and find God in their lives in a
new and more wonderful way.
The Lord spoke of it all as He
was sharing with His disciples;
"But a time is coming, and has
come when you will be scat-
tered...you will leave me all
alone. Yet I am not alone, for my
Father is with Me. I have told you
these things so that in me you
may have peace. In this world you
will have trouble. But take heart! I
have overcome the world (John
16:32-33)." Faith teaches us to
look beyond; looking beyond the
moments of initial excitement
and joy, looking beyond the
tragedies that happen to us, and
looking for the final triumph. The
Holy Week is looking to the final
victory of Resurrection and our
celebration with God.
Our gift of faith helps us see
beyond and have a new life: The
Lord's message of "Take heart, I
have overcome the world" is for
all of the faithful who still seek
Him.


Resurrection Faith, an Easter Story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Every year around this time,
my thoughts turn towards
Stephen. Stephen was one of
those special youths who touched
my life. He was energetic. He was
a leader. He had an open heart for
the Lord, and he loved helping
make things happen in the youth
group. And if that wasn't enough,
he had a cute older sister. I could-
n't have asked for much more as a
single young minister.
Around Easter, God blessed me
with a program that Stephen really
took to heart. I gave everyone an
empty Leggs container (the ones
shaped like eggs), and challenged
them to go find something that
symbolized new life and place it in
their "egg". We ended up with
flowers and insects and all kinds
of offerings. I then showed them
an empty egg and shared with
them about the tomb being empty
and how that meant new life for
us all. Stephen liked the illustra-


tion so much that he started hand-
ing out empty eggs at school, shar-
ing with the recipients about the
empty tomb
and its' mean-
ing. He called
his eggs "resur-
rection eggs".
Then,
Stephen came
out of remis-
sion. In six
weeks, I saw a
healthy, ener- John
getic young Hicks
man become a
puffy, lethargic mass. Although
the cancer affected Stephen's
body, it did not affect his spirit. He
still had a positive outlook and still
loved to share resurrection eggs
with those around him.
Stephen eventually slipped into
a coma and was admitted to the
hospital. One day as I was heading
to the church, I got the inkling to
stop at the hospital to see him. As I
went up to the floor, I met
Stephens' dad, who with tears in
his eyes shared, "John, my son is


dying."
With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natal position making
whimpering sounds like a little
puppy. Not knowing what else to
do, I held Stephens' hand and
started to pray. I don't know the
time frame, but I suddenly noticed
that the whimpering had stopped.
I looked up and saw Stephen
looking at me. I will never forget
his look or what he told me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later Stephen did
go to be with Jesus. But his words
of assurance stayed in my heart.
The church was filled to overflow-
ing with students and young peo-
ple giving testimony after testimo-
ny about how Stephen's faith had
touched their lives. Many came
with the resurrection eggs that
Stephen had given them. One of
the resurrection eggs was even
placed in his coffin. Stephen's
body we placed in the earth, but
Stephen's spirit had already been


claimed he had gone to be with
Jesus.
If you ever happen to be in
Sandy Springs, Ga., stop by North
Springs United Methodist Church.
There you will find a Dogwood
tree blossoming with new life dur-
ing the Easter Season. At its base is
a plaque remembering Stephen
Haight. It's a tribute to a young
man who touched many lives not
only with his resurrection eggs,
but with his resurrection faith.
Because the tomb is empty, we
can have new life. Because the
tomb is empty our lives can be
full. Because the tomb is empty,
we can go forth as people brim-
ming with the resurrection love of
God. Be graceful in spirit, hopeful
in word, faithful in deed. Live for
the risen Christ as Christ lives in
you. And remember, when the
day comes, as people with resur-
rection faith, we can claim and
proclaim with full assurance, "I'm
going to be with Jesus." Alleluia
and Amen!


2,500-year-old man shares his wisdom


MOORE HAVEN With age
comes wisdom, or at least that
what we've always been led to
believe, but after a presentation
by a 2,500 year old man and
Deputy Donnie Watts, who inter-
viewed him, we're not so sure.
Remember vaudeville? Ever
hear of "schtik?" Well, the
Keenagers of First Baptist
Church were treated to a little
schtik that talked about some
familiar Bible characters and a
lesson on obedience. Deputy
Watts, is not only one of Glades
County's finest, he also turned
actor in a hilarious skit, as he
interviewed a 2.500 year old
man in the person of Mary Bond
who was made up to look the
part and who fooled everyone
with the disguise. The skit went
from the old man flirting with
one of the ladies in the audience
- he informed the announcer
that he was working on his 301st
wife to a lesson on how God's
was are the best ways When
asked if he knew any famous
people, the old man allegedly
knew Lot and his wife when he
lived in Sodom. He said he was
also on the ship with Jonah and
tried to talk him into going back
and doing what God told him to
do. His parting words of wisdom
were, "Trust God and avoid rasp-
berries, the little seeds get stuck
in your teeth."
The Keenagers' trip by TriRail
to the Sawgrass Mills Mall in Ft.
Lauderdale, proved to be a "wee
bit longer" than planned. The
rails the Tri-Rail shares with
Amtrak were being worked on
and their agent forgot to tell
them that the bus doesn't run
from the station on Saturdays, so
they all crowded into a shuttle
and took the scenic route to the
mall. A fun time was had by all
as the cliche goes, and you
couldn't beat the $2 round trip
price! Maybe next year we'll real-
ly get our money's worth and
ride all the way to Miami and
back.
This 50+ group leaves on Sat-
urday, March 24, at 3:40 p.m. for
a trip to Wauchula to see the
passion play, "The Jesus Story."
You're missing out on a lot of
fun if you are 50 years of age or
older and not participating in
Keenagers! Next month on April
20, there will be a covered-
luncheon and flower and plant
exchange. Two ladies who have
participated in and judged
flower shows statewide will
teach us how to do our own
arranging. Plans are in the mak-
ing for a trip to a dinner theatre.

r By Jackie Miller, Minister
i First Christian Church, Clewiston
Years ago a church song
Truthfully noted, "Someone is
watching your light." What we
do affects others. The same with
what we believe. Our attitudes
and dispositions rub off on oth-
ers. This is true.whether our
influence is good or bad.
In the Old Testament the
righteous priest Jehoida
removed the wicked usurper
S(Athaliah) and put the rightful
t heir (eight-year-old Joash) on
e the throne. As long as Jehoida
e lived, Joash was good, but after
the priest died, others influenced
him the wrong way.
At Antioch, Peter was influ-
enced (pressured) by Jews not
to eat with Gentile Christians and
Peter's actions affected others
(even Barnabas).
Judas Iscariot, who carried
the group money-bag and took
from it, covetously criticized the
women for pouring such expen-
sive ointment on Jesus, calling it
a waste. His words sounded so
sensible that the other apostles
added their criticism.
In the midst of idolatrous
times, Joshua said he and his
family were going to serve Jeho-
vah and many others followed
his good example.
Though Solomon had long
been good, in time he became
idolatrous through the influence of


the foreign wives he had married.
Influence was a powerful fac-
tor in Bible days and it still is. If
you become a Christian, it will
result in others being Christians.
If as a Christian you set a good
example, there will be others
who will follow; it will have an
effect on others. If you preach
the Word faithfully, it will lead
others. If you start missing
church services, so will others.
So we must steward the mat-
ter of our influence. It is part of
life, a part of our potential, and
something for which we will
give account. It's time for you to
look at who and what are influ-
encing you and how, and at the
same time what kind of example
you have been setting for others
to follow. Paul's example was
such that he could write to the
Philippian Christians and say,
"Those things, which ye have
both learned and received and
heard and seen in me, do: and
the God of peace shall be with
you" (Phil. 4:9). Can you say to
others as he said to the Corinthi-
ans, "Be ye followers of me,
even as I also am of Christ" (I
Cor. 11:1)?
The truth is Satan has influ-
enced more people than any-
body else. The Apostle Paul
speaks for us when he said, "We
ourselves also were sometimes
foolish, disobedient, deceived"
(Titus 3:3).

Drought leads to local area water restrictions


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
All water users, residential,
commercial and agricultural, are
going to have to pull together to
conserve water. Record low
rainfall resulting in record low
lake levels has prompted South
Florida Water management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) officials to issue
water restrictions.
The area around Lake Okee-
chobee is in a Phase II (severe)
water shortage while the lower
east coast of Florida is suffering
from a Phase I (moderate) water
shortage. Therefore, restrictions
are more sever for the area
around Lake Okeechobee than
for the east coast.
Phase III restrictions are
issued when the situation is con-
sidered extreme and Phase IV
restrictions are considered to be
critical.
The area affected by Phase II
continues south around both
sides of the lake and includes
the Everglades Agricultural Area.
While water restrictions do
not yet include residential wells,
Gary Ritter of SFWMD's Okee-
chobee Service Center urges
well users to voluntarily con-
serve water.
Agriculture interests around
the lake are required to reduce
their use of water by 30 percent
of their permitted capacity. They
are not allowed to draw water
irrigation water from canals on

Marshall Foundation


seeks planting help


WEST PALM BEACH The
non-profit Arthur R. Marshall
Foundation is seeking volun-
teers to help plant wetland
trees on Torry Island near Belle
Glade, on Saturday, April 7.
The West Palm Beach-based
Marshall Foundation is dedicat-
ed to restoring the Everglades
through education .and com-
munity outreach. Torry Island,
at the southern end of Lake
Okeechobee, was once a
forested wetland and a vital
part of the Florida Everglades.
The 700-acre island was
cleared for farmland decades
ago. It became uninhabitable
in the 1970's after a series of
hurricanes and is today over-
grown with weeds and non-
native plant species. In 2003,
the Marshall Foundation part-
nered -with the City of Belle
Glade to replant wetland trees
on the island and turn the area
into an ecotourism destination.
SThe effort has resulted in about
33,000 native pond apple and
cypress trees being planted so
far.
On April 7, Marshall Founda-
tion volunteers will continue
the planting effort on the
island. Volunteers of all ages
are expected to be on hand.
"Each month, we hold a vol-
unteer tree-planting on Torry
Island in order to get the com-
munity involved in the restora-
tion effort," said Robby
Astrove, Environmental Educa-
tion Specialist for the Marshall


"Each month, we hold
a volunteer tree-plant-
ing on Torry Island in
order to get the com-
munity involved in the
restoration effort.
With enough help from
community groups,
families and individu-
als, I know we can get
the trees in the ground
and improve the Ever-
glades ecosystem."

ter said these pumps would
serve two functions. They would
provide water for irrigation.
They would also keep salt water
from intruding into coastal
wells, as happened during the
drought of 2000.


Filling of swimming pools is
still allowed. If a pool is emptied,
it must drain unto a non-paved
surface. There are also restric-

April to be celebrated as Water Conservation Month


TALLAHASSEE Gov. Charlie
Crist and the Florida Cabinet on
Friday, March 23, recognized April
as Water Conservation Month.
The Florida Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection (DEP),
together with the Florida Section
of American Water Works Associ-
ation, endorsed the proclamation,
reaffirming the state's commit-
ment to protecting and preserving
Florida's water supply and quality.
"Recognizing April as Water
Conservation Month helps pro-
mote the importance of water
conservation, encouraging Florid-
ians to become environmental
stewards at home and in their
community," said DEP Secretary
Michael W. Sole. "By pursuing
state and local partnerships,
adopting growth management


practices and implementing con-
servation strategies, we can pro-
tect our water quality, as well as
ensure a reliable supply of water
for the state's natural resources
and water needs for our growing
economy."
With more than 7,700 lakes,
4,500 square miles of estuaries
and bays, more than 50,000 miles
of rivers and streams and count-
less wetlands throughout the
state, protecting water quality is
vital to maintaining our quality of
life. In 2005, DEP's Clean Water
State Revolving Fund was recog-
nized by the U.S. Environmental
Protection Agency for the State's
efforts to promote water conser-
vation and reuse. Since its incep-
tion in 1988, Florida's State
Revolving Fund program has


awarded more than $2.7 billion in
loans for water quality protection
projects, including funding 106
water reuse projects totaling
more than $384 million.
SAlong with public water quali-
ty, restoration and conservation
programs, Floridians can adopt
simple habits to help protect and
conserve water:
Fix water leaks. Homeown-
ers lose an average of 25 gallons
of water a day through leaky
water devices.
Take shorter showers and
install a low-flow showerhead.
For an investment of $10 or less
you can save $50 to $75 per year
on water bills and $20 to $50 or
more per year on energy bills.
Run your washing machine
and dishwasher only when they


are full and'you could save 1,000
gallons a month. If you wash dish-
es by hand don't leave the water
running for rinsing and you can
save 200 to 500 gallons a month.
Repair dripping faucets. If
your faucet is dripping at a rate of
one drop per second, you can
waste 2,700 gallons per year.
Do not leave sprinklers or
hoses unattended. A garden hose
can pour out 600 gallons or more
in only a few hours.
Reuse household water for
irrigation.
Replace conventional toilets
that use up to five gallons of water
per flush with water-efficient,
low-flow toilets.

WEST PALM BEACH -
Florida Crystals' 2006-2007
sugar cane harvest season
came to an end with promising
signs the industry is on the road
to recovery after two years of
devastating storms.
Florida Crystals' sugar mills
ground a volume of 5,780,949
gross tons of sugar cane, yield-
ing 654,812 tons of sugar. Sugar
production increased from last
season's 485,482 tons.
"After two challenging years,
Florida Crystals bounced back
with an impressive crop sea-
son," saEd Alfy Fanjul, Chair-
man and CEO of Florida Crys-
tals. "We maintained that we
would recover from the storms
and through the hard work and
effort of our team, we are now
seeing positive results."
Okeelanta Corporation,
located in South Bay, finished
its season with a record volume
of sugar cane ground in the
least amount of days, which
amounted to the most grinding
per day in the history of the
Okeelanta Sugar Mill.
Osceola Farms Co., located


"We are pleased to see
our sugar mills and
our lands producing
yields close to what
they were before the
hurricanes. We look
forward to another
great crop next year."
J. Pepe Fanjul,
Vice Chairman,
COO and President
of Florida Crystal

in Pahokee, ended its 46th sea-
son with the third best total vol-
ume of sugar cane ground.
"We are pleased to see our
sugar mills and our lands pro-
ducing yields close to what they
were before the hurricanes,"
said J. Pepe Fanjul, Vice Chair-
man, COO and President of
Florida Crystals. "We look for-
ward to another great crop next
year."


Forestry Division promotes

Wildfire Awareness Week


Area Phase II water restrictions continue in effect


WEST PALM BEACH With
below-average rainfall and drought
conditions continuing throughout
the region, mandatory water use
restrictions go into effect through-
out South Florida starting today.
The restrictions are the result of
three water shortage orders passed
last week by the South Florida
Water Management District Gov-
erning Board and signed by Execu-
tive Director Carol Ann Wehle.
"Because rainfall is the region's
primary source for freshwater sup-
ply, substantial cutbacks in water
use through the water restrictions
and voluntary conservation prac-
tices will help stretch dwindling
water supplies," Ms. Wehle said.
"We've asked the media to help
communicate this important mes-
sage to our residents so we can all
weather the water shortage with as
little impact as possible."
Lake Okeechobee
Service Area -
Phase II Restrictions
Phase II mandatory water use
restrictions in areas surrounding
Lake Okeechobee predominantly
impact agricultural, industrial, and
commercial water users in the
Everglades Agricultural Area, and
parts of Hendry, Glades, Okee-
chobee, Palm Beach, Lee and Mar-


tin counties. Also affected are a rel-
atively small number of residential
users whose water source is Lake
Okeechobee or any of the surface
water canals recharged by the lake,
as well as utility customers in South
Bay, Belle Glade, Pahokee and
Clewiston.
Agricultural water users in these
areas are required to reduce their
consumption of surface water by
30 percent. These users have been
notified personally of the specific
nature of restrictions pertaining to
this order and are encouraged to
voluntarily exercise additional
water conservation measures as
practicable.
Residential users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area who irri-
gate from surface water canals will
be required to limit outdoor irriga-
tion times to two days per week.
Residents with odd home address-
es will be allowed to water
between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Wednesday and Saturdays, while
residents with even home address-
es will be allowed to water
between 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Thursday and Sundays. Car and
boat washing are allowed only dur-
ing the designated watering days
and times.
The Phase II restrictions in the
Lake Okeechobee Service Area
apply to users who get their water


from Lake Okeechobee, public util-
ities, canals, ponds and lakes.
Groundwater sources (wells) are
not restricted in the Lake Okee-
chobee Service Area because Lake
Okeechobee and is not threatened
by the water shortage in this area.
The use of water for firefighting,
safety, sanitation, health, medical
and other essential purposes is not
restricted.
Turn off sprinklers for a few days
after it rains.
The restrictions prohibit home-
owners from operating their sprin-
kler systems on non-watering days.
Irrigating three days a week or less
is enough to keep everything green
and saves thousands of gallons of
water. In addition, the Phase I and
Phase II restrictions allow low-vol-
ume, spot-watering using a hose
with an automatic shut-off nozzle
from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. on the land-
scape watering days.
"We're hoping to bring water
conservation practices into every-
one's daily lifestyle, and the restric-
tions do just that," Ms. Wehle said.
"Homeowners can conserve even
more water by not watering for sev-
eral days after a significant rainfall.
If roughly 500,000 home-sprinkler
systems were turned off each time
it rains, we could keep over 1 bil-
lion gallons of water in the aquifer,
reducing the need to recharge our


aquifers from the Everglades and
further reducing the advance of
saltwater intrusion, which threat-
ens our natural resources and
coastal wellfields."
Specific rules also apply to con-
sumptive use permit holders such
as agriculture, nurseries, golf cours-
es and other commercial and
recreational users of water.
Residential and commercial
water use restrictions are mandato-
ry and will be enforced by local
government through its law
enforcement or zoning and code
enforcement agencies. The South
Florida Water Management District
enforces the restrictions for con-
sumptive water use permit holders.
In addition to the mandatory
water use restrictions where appli-
cable, residents in all areas of the
District are encouraged to voluntar-
ily save water both inside and out-
side the home. For additional infor-
mation, residents can call the
District's toll-free Water Conserva-
tion Hotline at (800) 662-8876 or
contact their regional South Florida
Water Management District Service
Center.
Specific water restriction infor-
mation and other helpful water
conservation tips are available at
www.sfwmd.gov/conserve.


TALLAHASSEE April 8-14
is Wildfire Awareness Week in
Florida. In order to promote
Wildfire Awareness Week this
year, we are once again holding
a contest in which television
(radio station & newspapers
who have a webpage) viewers
will be able to answer trivia
questions about fire weather
and fire danger and win "Fire
Danger Weather Kits". Weather
is often overlooked when we
speak about wildfires and fire
danger. Although lightning
starts a large number of wild-
fires in Florida, the main cause
remains human-based. While it
is difficult to change the num-
ber of arson-initiated wildfires,
fires that begin due to careless-
ness may be reduced through
education. Debris burning,
where allowed, is often done
on days where the weather
conditions are likely to cause
fires to escape if not properly
conducted or attended. Windy
conditions, low humidity, and
dry fuels can all contribute to
the escape and spread of a sim-
ple backyard fire into a large
wildfire.
The "Fire Danger Weather
Kits" contain materials that can
help teach Florida residents
about the wildfire threat that
exists in the state all year round
and conditions that are likely to
contribute to initiation of wild-


fires. The thermometer and
rain gauge can be used to mon-
itor local conditions and raise
awareness of the lack of rainfall
and warm temperatures that
may indicate unfavorable burn-
ing conditions. Rainfall in Flori-
da is typically sporadic in
nature and locations several
miles apart may report signifi-
cantly different rainfall
amounts from the same storm
system. This kit can help peo-
ple increase their weather
awareness as well as their local
threat from wildfires.
The response for the first
contest last spring for Wildfire
Awareness Week was very pos-
itive. The contest was promot-
ed at the wildfire briefing with
the governor last March and we
will continue to promote it this
year. Severe burning conditions
are already impacting the state
and wildfire occurrence contin-
ues to increase. The outlook for
a La Nifia this spring also
increases the likelihood of
Florida experiencing another
active fire season.
This is a ground-breaking
fire prevention campaign and
we look forward to even larger
numbers in participation for
this year. For any questions
regarding the program, please
feel free to-call at (850) 413-
7172 or email at
hanleyd@doacs.state.fl.us.
