Citizens discuss mail delivery


Situation can be
mere inconvenience
or real hardship

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Most
residents of Glades County are
aware of the challenges of living
in a mostly rural area. You can-
not just run to the grocery store
at a minute's notice or drive sev-


eral blocks to the pharmacy.
These common things take some
planning and involve putting
expensive fuel in your vehicle.
If the rural post office is not
able to deliver mail to your busi-
ness, you must get a post office
box and plan your daily runs to
retrieve the mail if it contains
time sensitive documents or
applications with deadlines. This
may sound like merely another
bothersome chore, but to many
businesses, medical profession-
als and the disabled it may be a


hardship. Some may feel this is
the price you pay for a rural
lifestyle, however this situation
often occurs within the city of-
Moore Haven, the county seat.
Dr. and Mrs. Geake opened
their medical center in Novem-
ber of 2006. They were wel-
comed by the community
because John Geake is the only
private physician within the
county. Their office is in the his-
toric downtown section of
Moore Haven and they do not
have the privilege of mail deliv-

ery. Simple correspondence can
be done with their post office
box. However, the situation has
become a true hardship for the
working couple.
Ellen Geake is the medical
office manager for her husband,
Dr. John Geake. She was at the
city council meeting March 20
where she and several other
business people told about the
problems with mail delivery
within the city.
Ms. Geake stated her dilemma
briefly and recalled that they did


not know about the lack of mail
delivery when they purchased
the medical building.
She went on to explain her sit-
uation.
"We have struggled to finish
our change of address status with
Blue Cross Blue Shield, Medicare
and Medicaid we hit a brick
wall," said Ms. Geake. "They do
not accept a post office box as an
address. They need a physical

Engine failure
investigated
by NTSB

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY On
March 26, a Cessna aircraft
owned by Epic Aviation left Fort
Myers. Thirty minutes into flight
the engine failed on the single
prop airplane and the pilot
radioed in that he had to make
an emergencylanding.
According to a press release,
the Glades County Sheriff's
Office received a call just before
dusk advising them that Cessna


172SP had declared an emer-
gency landing. Members of
GCSO's Special Operation Unit
and Fire Rescue were dis-
patched to the Boar Hammock
area, about four miles east of
U.S. 27.
A short time later they found
the plane, which had landed
safely in a pasture, and both the
pilot and passenger were unin-
jured. The aircraft was secured
and FAA officials declared that
the plane had engine failure.
Epic Aviation is a flight school
located in New Smyrna Beach.
Their spokesman, Robert
Tetrault, explained that the plane

there was a lot of interest in it.
We started with twenty to thirty

Drought continues; tighter water restrictions predicted


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
WEST PALM BEACH Tiger
water restrictions may be on the
horizon.
"If the drought continues,"
said Ms Wehle, "We could be
looking at water elevations in
Lake Okeechobee one foot lower
than the record low of 8.79 feet."
Based on a review of new
information received from the
National Weather Service, water
managers at the South Florida
Water Management District have
predicted that drought conditions
are likely to intensify quickly, par-
ticularly in the highly-populated
Lower and Upper East Coast Ser-
vice Areas, which comprise por-
tions of St. Lucie, Martin, Palm


Beach, Broward, Miami-Dade and
Monroe Counties.
At a press conference on Tues-
day, they predicted tighter water
restrictions may be in place soon.
The drought and subsequent
water shortage of 2007 are the
result of severe, extended, low
rainfall dating back to 2006,
which ranked as the sixth-driest
year on record in terms of Dis-
trict-wide rainfall. This has con-
tinued through the first three
months of 2007.
Only 2.61 inches of rain has
fallen year to date District-wide:
Just 37 percent of the average
rainfall for the three-month peri-
od ending March 30. In March,
only 0.60 inch of rain fell District-
wide; This is 21 percent of the his-
torical average for the month.


This year's dry season current-
ly ranks as the third driest season
in recordable Florida history,
according to the National Weath-
er Service. Meanwhile, the U.S.
Drought Monitor, which identifies
general drought areas by intensi-
ty, has recently categorized all
areas of the SFWMD as either
moderate or severe drought
zones with a prediction of possi-
ble drought intensification.
Water levels across the District
have dropped suddenly and
sharply over the past week, exac-
erbated by high evaporation and
transpiration rates and longer
periods of wind and sunlight.
Water managers at the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) announced April 2
that its Governing Board will con-


sider expanding the current water
use restrictions at its April 12
meeting. Approval will mean that
the new restrictions go into effect
on April 13.
"We will be recommending
and we expect that the Governing
Board will approve the tighter
restrictions," said Ms. Wehle.
Phase 1 or moderate water
shortage declaration will continue
for the Upper East Coast Service
area, which comprises residential
areas of Martin and St. Lucie Coun-
ties and a change to Phase 2 or
severe water shortage declaration
for the Lower East Coast Service
Area, which comprises eastern
Palm Beach, Broward, Miami-
Dade and Monroe Counties.
Lake Okeechobee was at 10.34
feet on Tuesday four feet lower


than last year's level. It will take a
great deal of periodic rainfall over
the summer months to remedy
this situation said Ms. Wehle.
Water managers will ask the
SFWMD Governing Board to con-
sider Phase 3 or extreme water
shortage declaration for the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area, which
comprises the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area and portions of Hendry,
Glades, Lee, Okeechobee, Palm
Beach and Martin Counties.
Agricultural users are by far the
largest water users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area; the
new restrictions would require
them to reduce their water use 45
percent.
The SFWMD continues to.
encourage both residential and
agricultural water users through-


out the District to reduce their
water consumption and observe
more.aggressive water conserva-
tion practices as practicable.
While voluntary conservation
also is encouraged for users of
alternative water supply sources,
the use of 100 percent reclaimed
water is not subject to restrictions.
The use of water for health, fire,
safety and other essential purpos-
es also is not restricted,
For additional information,
area residents are encouraged to
call the SFWMD's toll-free Water
Shortage Hotline at 1-800-662-
8876 or contact their regional
SFWMD service center. Helpful
water conservation tips and spe-
cific information on current water
use restrictions are available at

Man arrested Sago Palm Academy in Pahokee re-opens classroom facilities


following an

auto chase

Subject was tracked
by Palm Beach offi-
cials into Clewiston

By Naji Tobias
INI/Florida
HARLEM A 20-year old man
was arrested after an auto chase
that took place near Clewiston on
March 26.
According to a press release
provided by the Hendry County,
Sheriff's Office, a Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office helicopter
followed the suspect out of Paho-
kee, driving a stolen vehicle into
Hendry County to the Harlem
Gardens area.
At approximately 12:45 p.m.
on March 26, the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office received a request
from the Palm Beach County
Sheriff's Office for assistance with
the chase, according to the report.
The probable cause affidavit,
provided by the Hendry County
Sheriff's Office, said that a PBSO
Eagle One Helicopter pilot report-
ed seeing the suspect abandon
the stolen vehicle and flee the
Harlem Gardens area near
Clewiston on foot.
The suspect then entered a
mobile home on Virginia Avenue,
where he was seen taking off a
white shirt, according jo the affi-
davit.
As the Eagle One helicopter
kept watch on the trailer, the pilot
saw the suspect leaving the resi-
dence with a different shirt and a
bicycle, heading toward Ninth
Court.
Corporal Juan Soto of the
Hendry County Sheriff's Office
apprehended the suspect on Mis-
sissippi Avenue almost two hours
later.
According to the affidavit, the
corporal later found out that the a
residence on Ninth Court had
been broken into and a uniform
and a bicycle had been stolen.
The owner of the residence
recognized the clothing' the sus-
pect was wearing as that of her
husband's. The bicycle, she said,
belonged to her son.
Feloice Rivers was arrested by
the Hendry County Sheriff's
Office and charged with one third
degree felony count of criminal
mischief, along with two second
degree felony counts of burglary
of a dwelling and a first degree
misdemeanor charge of larceny.
The suspect is held in the Hendry
County jail on a $23,500 bail.

County

rejects case

manager
By Patty Brant
INI Florida
LABELLE -At their March 27
meeting, Hendry County com-
missioners chose not to create a
case manager position in the
county probation office. County
Judge Jim Sloan had presented
the program as a possible way to
help relieve jail overcrowding.
The commissioners balked at
creating another position which
might "grow" into another full
blown department, indicating
the job could be done by current
personnel.
Also at their March 27 meet-
ing, the county commissioners
decided to purchase several lots
located at the south end of the
runway at LaBelle Airport which
are in the Runway Protection
Zone (RPZ), the area at either end
of a runway that offers the great-
est risk of airplane crashes. Up to
$1.5 million may be secured from
the Florida Department of Trans-
portation for airport-related land
purchases. A home has recently
been constructed on another lot
in that area, which may be pur-
chased later.

PAHOKEE Sago Palm
Academy celebrated the re-
opening of its facility on Thurs-
day, March 23.
The School District of Palm
Beach County, in conjunction
with Group 4 Securior and the
Florida Department of Juvenile
Justice, completed the 18-
month long project with great
success, according to Don
Tankersley, the project manager
and assistant principal of the
Sago Palm Academy.
Mr. Tankersley credits the
youth in the completion of the
process.
"I thought the youth were
looking forward to make the re-
opening of the academy possi-
ble," said Mr. Tankersley. "I
appreciate their hard work and
dedication to the project."
Due to storm damage from
Hurricane Wilma in 2005,
which resulted in mold forming
within the walls and air-condi-
tioning duct, the school build-
ing, also known as the Bravo
Building, had to undergo major
renovations to make the facility
safe and secure for the students
and staff to use.
According to Voncia Hay-
wood, the site administrator
and manager for the facility, the
renovation project resulted in
the administrative offices being
based at Belle Glade's West
Tech campus. Students had to
attend some of their classes in

Sago Palm received the distinc-
tion of becoming 'deemed' sta-
tus in 2005, which is the highest
possible achievement in the
annual quality insurance
review.
Mr. Hasselbach said that the
Sago Palm Academy is the
largest high-risk residential juve-
nile facility in the state of Flori-
da, with an active community
advisory board made up of
stakeholders, including the
Palm Beach County Sheriff's
Office, the Palm Beach County
'Fire Rescue and the Palm Beach
County School Board.
The Sago Palm Academy
holds over 200 juvenile boys,
ranging from grades 6-12.
In the academy, five pro-
grams are offered, including
two substance abuse treatment
programs, one mental health
program, one juvenile sex
offenders program and a gener-
al population program.
Mr. Hasselbach said he likes
the way the academy has turned
out for the youths who attend
there.
"Education is the key ingredi-
ent to the recipe for success,"
said Mr. Hasselbach. "Young
men in the academy possess
unlimited talent and potential,
as we appreciate the assistance
in enhancing the environment
where they could learn."

against FPL depending on the posi-
tion of the person she was talking
to. At that time FPL was only con-
sidering Glades County, which is
not a decision to come to Glades
County. As soon as our manager,
Wendell Taylor, became aware of
the decision by FPL to place the
plant in Glades County, he publicly
announced it to the Glades County
Commissioners at the very next
county commissioners meeting.
.Ms. Petersen has ridiculed the
meetings that were taken from
community to community. Infor-
mation presentations were made
and should have been. FPL
responded and more time was
spent on answering questions
from the audience than was made
in the presentation. It was a very
informative meeting and was run
very fairly. Ms. Petersen is only sore
that she and her imported hoards
of hardened radical environmen-
talists were not there using up the
time that was designated for
Glades County citizens. Ms.
Petersen's statement that 98 per-
cent of the people did not attend -
that would be about right for most
hearings in Glades County, but at
these hearings, all the community
buildings were packed full. She
should have come and seen.
Nevertheless, Commissioner
Donna Storter was so interested in
you and your failure to attend all
the meetings that she personally
allowed you to come into the
Board of County Commissioners
public meeting with eight or 10
people, most all from without the
county, so that you could protest
the FPL park in the county com-
missioners' meeting. Will Ms.
Donna Storter Long be surprised to
find all of that recorded testimony
in a lawsuit against Glades County
at a near future date? I think not.
And of course you will not be sur-
prised. Mrs. Donna Storter knows
exactly where she stands or rather
sits straddled precariously on the
barbed wire fence. She is not the
least bit interested in representing
the will of the people. But only
determined to represent herself
and a few dozen dissidents.
Ms. Petersen, the vast majority of
the county of Glades welcome
Florida Power and Light super criti-
cal coal burning power park. It
means wealth for the poorest coun-
ty in Florida. It means electricity for
the citizens of Florida. The alterna-
tive option is to cut off the 1,000 per
day coming into Florida. Florida
Power and Light is governed by the
U.S. Government Environmental
Protection Agency (EPA) and the
Florida Department of Environ-
mental Protection (DEP). Florida
Power and Light is the most envi-
ronmentally sensitive power com-
pany in the United States. It is not an
easy role to be a leader in protecting
the environment and producing
electricity. Their emissions are 20
percent less than required.-They
have been in the leadership role
when it comes to power produc-
tion. If we don't get the plant, be
assured someone will and the tax
dollars will go somewhere else. We
will be without as always and the
very wealthy, such as you, and our
multi-million dollar Commissioner
DonnaStorter.
Ms. Petersen, an opportunity
has knocked at our door. We
must do the reasonable and good
thing for Glades County. We need
the power plant and all the bene-
fits it will bring to Glades County.
We cannot look to our neighbor
for prosperity. We must provide
for ourselves.
Ms. Petersen, you and others
like you fail to realize that our coun-
ty has tried for years to get industry
and commercial interest to come to
our county. Only lately have they
been successful. Because the
coastal counties don't want any
more industry, they don't want
power plants. They have extraordi-
nary wealth. Yet they haven't sent
us a dime. They are nearly built out
to capacity and do not embrace
heavy industry. It seems strange to
me that they want development of
their choice to make themselves
wealthier and more affluent and
now have out-priced and zoned out
industry, preferring industry such as
FPL to go inland or out of the state.
The coastal counties nowwant
us to keep all of our county pris-
tine. Figure out a way to purify the
water, keep the forest growing so
that we can breathe. Keep the'
wetlands and swamps for the
magnificent birds and animals.
Yes, we want to do that too. In
fact, most people I know in Glades
County want to do more than our
share. But there comes a time to
consider fairness. If we are going
to keep the earth beautifully
green, water aplenty and Lake
Okeechobee to fish in, place to
hunt, birds to watch and the
Caloosahatchee pure, then there
should be tax monies from other


counties sent our way. Of course,
that would be fair and the right
thing to do. And if coastal counties
were to do that, we could keep
Glades County the pristine beauti-
ful place to visit. We could develop
smaller industrial and commercial
sites. But there is no need to fool
ourselves. In the 80 some odd
years that Glades County has been
a county, we've not reeived~red,
eyed cent from any #the 0tal
counties and need fit expect any
in the 80 years to come.
Although we have received
ridiculous statements from Lee
County that we are causing all the


damage to the estuaries when in
fact over two-thirds of the pollution
to the estuary comes from the hun-
dreds of miles of un-septic tanked
subdivisions in Lee County along
with under-capacity Lee County
sewer systems that dump directly
into the Caloosahatchee at peak
capacity times, some without
being filtered. Truly there must be
something you can accomplish in
your own county. If you want a
voice, take it to Lee County. There
are innumerable problems there
for you to solve.
Ms. Petersen, please don't point
your finger at us, nor accuse us of
deception or environmental dam-
ages. Look in your own county's
back door. Thanks to our commis-
sioners, we are doing a good job in
this county.

Helping Glades
County develop
Glades County is in a period of
change. Some may not welcome
the change that is coming, but
change is coming. The Glades
County Community Development
Department is striving to manage
growth, which is sure to come, in a
manner that will provide both the
current residents and new resi-
dents with a good place to live,
work and play.
I have spoken to several devel-
opers interested in building hun-
dred homes in various areas of
Glades County, including and area
adjacent to the City of Moore
Haven. The Glades County Eco-
noric Development Council is
fielding inquires from several types
of businesses about relocating to
Glades County. The Community
Development Department works
closely with the Economic Devel-
opment Council, to find suitable
locations for these businesses.
These processes are normal,
everyday occurrences. Changes to
our Comprehensive Future Land
Use Plan, Zoning Map, and Land
Development Regulation are ongo-
ing. Impact fees have been imple-
mented to help defray the cost of
newdevelopment.
A Rural Land Stewardship,
comprehensive plan overlay is
being proposed. This process will
give Glades County the tools need-
ed to insure that well over one half
of the county is developed in a
desirable manner.
Most of the contacts with devel-
opers and businesses never materi-
alize into actual developments or
businesses relocating to Glades
County. But both the Community
Development Department and
Economic Development Council
continue to promote Glades Coun-
ty, with the hope that good residen-
tial and commercial development
will occur.
When plans are announced,
they usually draw criticism from a
few. I usually avoid responding to
the criticism, but I have been asked
to respond, and have been quoted
in several newspapers.
I approved the site plan for the
Glades Power Park, a power plant
that Florida Power and Light hopes
to build in Glades County. This was
after several meetings with Florida
Power and Light, reviewing their
proposed plans, which resulted in a
determination that the site plan
approval application met all of the
requirements of the Glades County
Comprehensive Plan and Land
Development Regulations. By
county ordinance, the site plan
application approval cost FPL only
thirty dollars ($30.00), the same fee
charged anyone wanting a site plan
application approved. For this proj-
ect, that was all that FPL needed
from Glades County. The rest of
their approvals are required by
Florida Statute to be from the State
of Florida and Federal Government.

The Glades County Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners, after the site
plan approval, passed a resolution
to support the Glades Power Park
Project. This was not an approval,
just a resolution of support.
Letters to the editor have por-
trayed the site plan application fee
as being low, saying the fee "was
only $30." That is the fee set by
ordinance. In the same letter, it
was pointed out that Florida Power
& Light (FPL) would pay no impact
fees. That is because the Impact
Fee ordinance requires impact fees
to be paid only when you obtain a
building permit. Glades County
will never issue a building permit
for the Glades Power Park; they are
exempt from the Building Code,
including obtaining building per-
mits, because the 'Power Plant Sit-
ing Act', a thirty year old act found
in the Florida Statutes (see Chapter
403), regulates them.
The improvements to State
Road 78, will be addressed during
the site certification process. The
traffic impact analysis, that was
submitted to the FDEP in the site
certification application shows
improvements that they expect to
make, including a traffic signal at
US 27 and SR 78; realignment of
that intersection; widening of por-
tions of SR 78. They even talk about
making SR 78 four lanes from the
entrance to SR27. All of this will be
worked outwith the Florida Depart-
ment of Transportation; the roads
involved are State Roads.
The real property taxes were
also one of the topics in a letter to
the editor. The amount of taxes
FPL pays has been estimated to be
an average of $21 million per year.
In my opinion this is estimate is
low, but I don't have a Ph.D in eco-
nomics, like Dr. Fishkind. The fact
is no one can predict, with certainty
what taxes will bepaid. Look at
what is happening t now in the
Florida Legislature. I do know if the
cost estimates for Glades Power
Park hold true (I think they are
low), at the tax rate in effect last
year they would paid Glades Coun-
ty $26 million dollars, plus $5.1 mil-
lion to the Sheriff's Department.
The schools would have been paid
$5.2 million for their capital
improvement fund. That's $36.6
million dollars.
Letters to the editor have sug-
gested several other areas that
they feel Glades County should
have pursued prior to approving
Their site plan. The fact is, FPL met
the code requirements and to
hang conditions on that approval
would amount to extortion. FPL, if
the Site Certification Application
gets approved, will provide their
fair share-of taxes, just like any
other development that comes to
Glades County.
Another issue, again published
in a letter to the editor was the cost
of the 'Public Informational Meet-
ing' that Glades County had on
Feb. 20. I see a little humor in the
fact that we are criticized on one
hand about not telling everyone
every time a developer comes into
our offices, but then we get com-
plaints when we have a 'Public
Informational Meeting' to provide
the public with facts about a proj-
ect. As for the cost; Florida Power
and Light paid to the Florida
Department of Eiivironmental
Protection an application fee of
$200,000. The 'Power Plant Siting
Act', provided the opportunity for
Glades County to have the meet-
ing, and provides for Glades Coun-
ty to apply to FDEP for reimburse-
ment, which will be paid from the
FPL application fee paid to FDEP.
I will continue to assist any busi-
ness or developer wanting to locate
in Glades County. I will follow all of
the ordinances of Glades County
and the laws of the State of Florida,
to do otherwise would be wrong.

NFL stars to
participate
By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
CLEWISTON The Clewiston
High School Field House will host
a Youth Skills Camp on Saturday,
April 14.
The organizers, football coach-
es Stephen Boyd and Phillip Sum-
mers, said that the purpose of the
camp is to empower the youth
from Grades six to eight. Accord-
ing to the coaches, they want the
young people to know that posi-
tive things can come out of
Clewiston if everyone works
together toward a mutual goal.
Coach Boyd said his ultimate
goal is to get the youth interested
in playing football.
The camp will be held from 8
a.m. to noon that day. It will
include a tour of the school's field
house facility, an chance to go out
onto the football field to work on
offensive and defensive skills, and
a motivational speaking session
featuring Clewiston natives like
NFL star Eric Green, Lake Worth
Trojans defensive coordinator
Anthony Midgett, college football
player Andrew Powell and L.J.
Taylor.
All four are scheduled to lend
their assistance to Coach Boyd
and Coach Summers during the
camp next weekend.
"We want to showcase these
guys, letting the youth know they
can make it with good grades and
character, combined with athletic
ability," said Coach Summers.
With the abundant athletic tal-
ent in Clewiston, reaching the chil-
dren shouldn't be a problem, but
it has to go hand-in-hand with aca-
demics Coach Summers believes.
"You can be the best athlete in
the world, if you don't have the
grades, then there are not too

many places you could go," the
coach said.
He said the guests will be con-
centrating on delivering that mes-
sage when they speak to the kids.
Coach Boyd said that he expects
anywhere from 80 to about 100


students to come out to the camp.
"If we get the kids interested,
then the Clewiston High School
football team will benefit from it
down the road," said Coach Boyd.

ed the students with owl pellets
which are regurgitated by the birds
after a meal is digested.
Pellets consist of bones, feath-
ers and fur. These were examined
by the students who were able to
identify species that the owl prefers
by comparing the bones they
found to ones that were on display.
They were asked, "What have the
owls been eating." Some replies
were:
"Probably rats," said Elijah. He
was sure about that.
"A cotton rat," responded Sele-
na. She was able to identify the
specimen by its teeth and she
pointed to the one she had just
examined.
Kindergarten students from
Clewiston's Central Elementary
School learned how to nurture
sunflower seeds. An activity project
was set up under a picnic shelter
with supplies that included seeds,
cotton balls, water and surgical
gloves.
Children dampened the cotton
with water and dropped it in' the
glove. Then, a few seeds were
dropped in and the top of tie glove
was tied. After the seeds germinate
the child will be able to plant the
sprouts, and with a lillle help it
might grow.
Some kindergarten boys and
girls were asked, "Where will you
plant your ..,ni. ..' '" Here are
some answers:
"On a clean spot," said Kale
seriously.
"In front of rny house," replied
Shandra.
"In the backyard," grinnedi
Camryn.
"Right there," answered Randy
as he pointed to the ground.
"In front by mvy ree," said Geon-
na.
"Where the dirt is," .osl iua said
proudly.
"In my front yard wiith rny other
flowers," Isabel said matter of fact-
ly.
"Right out in the front," said
Dulce.

Children learn how to dissect owl pellets at Perry Park in Moore
Haven during the first day of the Big 'O' Bird Festival. They will
be able to identify each species when they examine the bones.

.. ^c~


Most of the children wanted to touch the reptiles on display
from Vanishing Species Wildlife center of Palmdale. The city
of Moore Haven in Glades County held its Big 'O' Bird Fest
March 30-April 1.


responded with a few positive
head nods because he is a quiet
young man.
The Vanishing Species Wildlife
center from Palmdale exhibited
reptiles and small mammals. Most
of the children were very inquisi-
tive and wanted to pet the snakes,
lizards and gator. However, no one


wanted to pet the tarantula spider.
All of the exhibits were avail-
able to each class. Students were
treated to a hot dog lunch, and
later they got a chance to release
their energy in the playground at
Perry Park.

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Speical to Glades
County Democrat
While it's hard to believe, there
are still many Hendrys in the area
who are directly related to the
most famous Hendry of them all -
Captain Francis A. Hendry,
Hendry County's namesake.
It has become a cherished tra-
dition in these parts the Cap-
tain Francis A. Hendry Family
Reunion which is always held in
early April.
This year, the Reunion will be
held Saturday, April 7 at the
Hendry House in LaBelle located
at the end of Fraser Avenue which
turns off Main Street by the Upthe-
grove School.
The event will open at 10:30
a.m. and continue until 3:30 p.m.
As is the tradition also, there will
be a covered dish dinner at noon.
Those attending are asked to
bring their favorite dish. The more
the merrier anything good to
eat goes! Everyone is invited,
come one, come all.
Captain Hendry was 17 years
old when the family arrived in
Florida after a three-week jour-
ney of over 500 miles traveling
by covered wagon. The family
consisted of seventeen, includ-
ing mother, father, five daugh-
ters, four sons, two sons-in-law
and four grandchildren.
Captain Hendry married on
March 25, 1852 at age 19 to 17
year-old Ardeline Ross Lanier


from Georgia. Their first home
was within the Garrison of Fort
Meade. Captain Hendry moved
his cattle east of Peace River, thus
becoming the first to move cattle
east of that river.
After leaving the fort, Captain
Hendry and his young wife set-
tled on unsurveyed land, north-
east of Fort Meade. For several
years while living in Fort Meade
he was involved in ranching, pol-
itics, the third Seminole Indian
War, and the Civil War.
He served as State Senator
from Polk and Brevard Counties,
all the while increasing his cattle
operation. In 1870 he drove
12,000 head of cattle across the
Caloosahatchee River and pas-
tured them on the prairies of Fort
Thompson, about ten miles east
of LaBelle.
In the summer of 1870 Captain
Hendry disposed of his property
in Fort Meade and moved his fam-
ily to Fort Myers. About that same
time he established a ranch home
at Fort Thompson and continued
to purchase large tracts of land in
the area from the State and to pur-
chase more cattle: Moving again
in 1888 at age 55, he sold his
home in Fort Myers and made his
home at Fort Thompson.
In 1902 Captain Hendry built
a new home in LaBelle. In 1908,
he was 75 years old and was vis-
ited by the "Press Man" from the
Fort Myers Press, who wrote:
"They have a splendid little
orange grove, and many fine


bearing grapefruit trees. Their
home is on one of the most
beautiful sites on the River being
situated on a high bluff, over-
looking the River both ways. It's
a comfortable home which is the
resting place for all travelers who
chance that way. We spent Sun-
day and Sunday night under their
roof and are deeply grateful for
the warm manner in which they
entertained us. Captain Hendry
still herds a few cattle, but most-
ly he devotes his time to writing
about this glorious county."
The Hendry's next home was
built in 1914 in LaBelle When
Captain Hendry was 81. He died
in February 1917 and his wife
passed away that same year.
This is the home where the
Hendry Reunion is being held
this year. It is now known as the
historic F. A. Hendry House and
is listed on the Historic Register
of Florida. The home is owned
by the City of LaBelle.
There are those who think of
Captain Francis Asbury Hendry
as the Godfather of Hendry
County, the county that has
proudly borne his name since
May 11,1923.
The Hendrys are now spread
all over Florida and beyond, and
many of them would not think of
ever missing this event, especially
those in Hendry, Glades and Lee
Counties. It's been said there's at
least one Hendry or a reasonable
facsimile on every other corner of
these three counties.

It is reassuring to residents
when they know neighbors are

This means they are unable to
get reimbursed for many of their

obtain free medication for eligible
clients.
Jeffrey Davis, owner of Ever-
glades Realty was also at the city
meeting. He has difficulty with the
mail system, too, because of time
sensitive documents and applica-
tions. When deadlines approach,
he may have to go to the post
office several times in one day in
addition to banking, legal proce-

"Lack of physical mail delivery
is not helpful to a professional

merchants," he said.

The pilot followed proper pro-

In order to receive this service
a resident mustfill out a form.
According to Wayne Collins,
community members feel more
secure because, "Somebody is
keeping an eye on his place."
In order to qualify as a volun-

ground check. Then they receive
a booklet with rules of do's and

cussion. She mentioned that
when boaters tie up at the city
dock for the evening they are usu-
ally looking for a mail box and are
unable to post anything. If the
boaters are lucky, Ms. Booher or
other nearby neighbor can assist
if they just happen to be making
their own run to the post office at
that time.
The post office in Moore
Haven was contacted for informa-
tion. Since they are part of a feder-
al agency there are protocols they
must follow. They furnished the
phone number to the United
States Postal Service communica-
tions officer of north and central
Florida. This official is Joseph
Breckenridge of Atlanta, Georgia.
Mr. Breckenridge gave details
over the phone about how the
postal service offers mail delivery
contracts to private individuals or
businesses. This is called High-
way Contract Routes (HRC).
Sometimes regulations forbid this
type of carrier to leave their vehi-


and the plane was not damaged.
"We commend the pilot. He did
an excellent job," said Mr. Tetrault.
Mr. Tetrault also mentioned his
appreciation for the helpfulness of
the local land owner and the
Glades County Sheriff's Office.
The plane was removed by Epic
Aviation, and the National Trans-
portation Safety Board will contin-
ue to investigate the cause of the
engine failure.

Sometimes the association
donates funds for items like uni-

patrol sells reflective house

Mr. Collins and the other vol-

dale's newly organized Citizens

The Buckhead Ridge team has a
vehicle speed detection sign that
lights up with the miles per hour

cle and step foot on the premises.
At this time, parts of Glades
County and the city of Moore
Haven are dependent upon High-
way Contract Route carriers and
according to Mr. Breckenridge
this makes it necessary for some
businesses and residents to have
a post office box.
Mr. Breckenridge wants to
work things out with customers.
"We are going to do every-
thing we can when a customer
comes to us with an issue," he
said.
On Tuesday, March 27 the
local post master, John Massey,
met with Ellen Geake. They
agreed that the Geakes would
purchase a mail box and that the
post office would furnish them
with a deliverable physical
address. This will enable the med-
ical center to do regular business
with Medicare, Medicaid and
insurance companies.

turned upside down


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Among our "collectibles" is a
Model T Ford. It belongs to my
mother and has been the family
for years. My 41
first acquain-
tance with
Model T's was -
when my
youngest -
brother bought
one and it was-
n't running.
That night, at
our dinner Samuel S.
table, he told Thomas
us about his
acquisition and said that if my
father would fix the body and my
other brother would repair the
upholstery and if I'd work on the
motor, he'd have a Model T! We
looked at him and listened to his
brash expectations, but we did it
anyway.
He'd drive it around the neigh-
borhood and we'd share with
him in his moment of glory.
There as another amazing thing
about the car. I was told that if
you showed the plans to a mod-
ern engineer, he'd tell you it
wouldn't run. Incredibly, the cul-
mination of modern knowledge
would be overturned by a man
100 years ago who didn't believe
it wouldn't run, and who built fif-
teen million of them to change
the face of the country.
Now the world has been


changed because of Henry Ford's
faith in what seemed impossible
to many. There are other stories
of those who overcame the-
impossible all around us. Many
couples have told me about start-
ing their lives together only to be
told that their marriages would
never last and going ahead any-
way and, lo and behold, it
"worked" as they recollect years
later about a faith in a "life togeth-
er" that overcame predictions of
"death." People I've encountered
who have been successful have
told me about the ones who were
quick to throw cold water on
their dreams but they had a
greater vision and won.
The Easter story is a story of
faith in the impossible and the
reality that came from that faith
which changed the world. It
begins with two women going to
anoint a dead body; they certainly
didn't expect any miracle that
day. People had hoped about
Jesus, but now even though their
hope seemed dashed, they would
at least respect His body and do
what they could. They find He is
not there; and then came a ques-
tion for all of us; "Why do you
look for the living among the
dead?" and they were terrified
(Luke 24:5-6)." The question was
followed by a pronouncement;
"He is not here, but has risen
(v.6)." The women were changed
that day and so were the apostles
who heard them and so were
those who heard from those
apostles and so are we and all


who have heard His message
ever afterward. The day was a
day when faith became a reality;
when the "reality" known'before
that day was overturned and life
triumphed over death after all. I
see it happening when the pes-
simists are wrong, when people
hope against all hope and are
rewarded, when everything is
telling us "no!" but there is that
spirit in us that says "Yes!"
because we believe in having life
and having life abundant. Life
does get "punctuated" at times
by those moments when people
triumph, rise above themselves,
expect the worst and find out
things are better than they could
have possibly imagined. Cen-
turies before the miracle of East-
er, God spoke about what has
been set before us; life and death,
blessings and curses. God
admonished us to "choose life
(Deuteronomy 30:19) so that you
and your children may live." That
call is still with us today, but today
we have seen the life of one who
overcame death so that we may
live too. There is that promise
that when we choose life, when
we choose to believe in spite of
everything, choose to have faith,
God will share the victory of the
Lord that was found in that empty
tomb with us. Now we know
what once was only dreamed
about-the Lord is risen, He is
risen indeed! May you have a
happy and blessed Easter; may
God's new life be with you at
Easter and every day.

The promise of Easter: Rolling


stones and crumbled tombstones


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I may be dating myself, but do
you remember the scene in ET
where ET reaches out and touch-
es the potted flower that had died?
It began to grow again. More than
that, it became more beautiful
than it was before it died. This is
the promise of Easter for us.
Touched by the Savior, what once
was dead now lives and is more
beautiful than it was before.
It's all about rolling stones and.
crumbling tombstones. Every one
of us has a stone or two that needs
to be rolled away. Every one of us
has something we have buried
and sealed away. Whether we
fully realize it or not, all of us have
a tomb somewhere, and in that
tomb we have put some hope that
has died. It might be a dream, a
relationship or an idea that we've
given up on. Perhaps it's some
guilt, some fear, or some loss
we've never resolved. For whatev-
er reason, it has died and it has
been buried, sometimes marked


with a tombstone remembering
something that was alive but is no
more. Sometimes it gets buried in
a tomb within our hearts and we
seal it with a
massive stone
to try to keep it
hidden.
The Easter
message is a
reminder that
God can and
will make our
tombstones
crumble and John
that He can Hicks
and will roll
away the stone on our heart-tomb
- no matter how big or massive.
By the power of God, the stone at
Easter was rolled away. By the
power of God, stones still roll! God
will roll away your stone no mat-
ter how large or heavy or immov-
able you might think it is. God will
crumble the tombstones we have
set up and life will be brought to
those places where we thought
everything, w- s dcad.
All that Jesus ever taught and
all that Jesus ever did was buried


behind that stone that sealed His
tomb. The forces of evil that
opposed God's great work in
Jesus thought that they had killed
it all. They thought that they had
buried it forever. They thought that
they had won.
But God had another idea. The
stone was rolled away. Jesus was
resurrected. God won! And that
rolling stone becomes the sym-
bol of God's "YES!" to the all of
the "No's" of the world. The
rolling stone of Easter is the sign
that God's goodness will never be
defeated, that God's truth will
never be denied, that God's love
will overcome every hate, and
that God's life will overcome
every death.
We go through life knowing
that we are dying every day as we
live, and knowing that there are
places in our hearts that have
already died, but also knowing
that God promises that the story
isn't over yet. Rolling stones and
crirnbling tombstones, what
once was dead, now lives. God
can and will roll away our stones

The Resurrection


- When you really believe it!


By Rev. Jackie Miller
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A little more than a month
before Easter she had returned
from the burial place outside the
city, leaving there in the silence
her fourteen-year-old boy. Two
days later her little girl gave up
the fight and in less than a week,
her baby. Only the three-year-old
escaped the deadly diphtheria.
When Easter came she was at
church with her husband and


only surviving child. Her face
was pale, but tender and beauti-
ful. She wore no emblem of her
sorrow and the lilies and violets
on her coat were like those she
had worn every Easter since I
had known her. When the con-
gregation arose to sing, she sang
softly the words: "The powers of
death have done their worst, But
Christ their legions hath dis-
persed."
Her husband stood with his
head bowed. He could not sing.


But she touched his hand as it
lay on the back of the pew and
when they recited the Respon-
sive Reading I heard him saying
the words steadily, "I believe
in...the resurrection of the body;
and the life everlasting." She
taught her class of girls that day,
and he went to his superinten-
dent's desk, led his class in wor-
ship and read the Easter story
with only a break now and then
in his fine voice. Amidst the faces
lined with suffering, rebelling


and despair of that Easter con-
gregation, they had seen a mira-
cle. A fifteen-year-old boy, walk-
ing home with his father from
the Sunday school said, "Dad, I
guess Mr. and Mrs. L- really
believe it, don't they?" "Believe
what?" said the father. "The
whole big thing, all of it; EAST-
ER, you know."
In John 14:19 Jesus said,
"Because I live ye shall live also."
Have you ever thought, "If there
were no Easter?"


How would it be, if I had to go
into the dark, alone?
What would I do, if the Lord
had not made my last pathway
known?
What would I do, should His
love not last throughout eternity?
How would it be, if I could
not greet Him, and my loved
ones there?
What would I do, if it could
not be He is my answered
prayer?
How would it be, had He not


assured So I could always know?
"If it were not as I promised
you, I would have told you so."

Hendry Speedway reports race results


HENDRY COUNTY Saturday
night racing action is alive and well
at Hendry County Speedway. Sixty
drivers took to the track in seven
different classes making for an
exciting night of great racing.
The Street Stock Division was
the first up. The heat race went
smoothly for everyone except #12
Randy Glover (West Palm Beach)
who lost an engine. John Wilson
(Okeechobee) led the first four laps
until Jesse Brown (Clewiston)
advanced to the lead. Wilson was
able to get the advantage on the
first lap of the feature until Brown
got by on lap three. The race went
caution free for the twenty lap dura-
tion. Jesse Brown took the win.
While John Wilson held off
Tommy Hill (Clewiston) who had
returned the 1H back to duty this
weekend. Portus Mellette (Royal
Palm Beach) and Joel Goldfrank
(West Palm Beach) rounded out
the top five.
On the first lap of the Bomber
heat there was a pile up in turn one.
Four cars went to the pit. The night
was over for #57 Carl Perman
(West Palm Beach) and #17 Jose
Valdez (Miami). Ernie Turner
(Labelle) and Carol Vanwagner
(Labelle) battled for the lead. Turn-
er spun coming out of turn four on
lap three giving the lead to Vanwag-
ner. One lap later, Ed Steinhoff
found the groove and took the lead
for the rest of the race. The feature
was all Steinhoffwho lead the race
wire to wire. Steve Colon ran sec-
ond but was later disqualified not
passing tech inspection. Carol Van-
wagner and Ernie Turner were set-
ting up another good battle when
Turner's engine apparently let go
on lap twelve. Vanwagner would
go on to receive the second place
honors. Ken Sabino (Davie) and
Joe Minnitti (Davie) also did not
pass tech inspection giving Chip
Bache (Davie) the third spot.
The first heat race in the Sports-
man Division had an incident
between Tom Lusk (Okeechobee)
and David Bratman (West Palm


Beach) in the first corner. Lusk lost
his left rear wheel.
Michael Cherry (Valrico) found
it with the front of his car. He
launched the front of the car at least
six feet in the air. It was very spec-
tacular for all who had the chance
to see it. Cherry decided to take the
car to the pits and check it out
before the feature. After the com-
plete restart Bill Lassiter (Port St.
Lucie) had a flat right front on lap
two leaving Travis Drapal (Labelle)
and Mark Taylor (Moore Haven) to
do battle for the win.
Taylor took the checkers.
Heat race two was all Rick Miller
(Stuart until a spin on lap six gave
the lead ,to Calvin Filingame (West
Palm Beach). Jesse Brown (Clewis-
ton) finished second driving David
Simpson's car #0 for the night. The
feature would end early for Brown
with some distributor problems.
Calvin Filingame was as fast as I
had ever seen him. He led the first
14 laps until Michael Cherry took
the lead. Immediately after the cau-
tion flag flew for passenger door
bars that had fallen off Cherry's car
in turn three. Cherry would have to
start in the rear with just six laps
left. One lap after the restart #3 Joe
Henke (Naples) set up a pass com-
ing out of turn two and took the
lead. Calvin Filingame and Rick
Miller swapped the second spot
until another caution with only two
laps left. Miller tried hard to get
under Henke on the front straight at
the restart. Henke was able to hold
him off and capture his first feature
win in the #3 car. Miller finished
second and Filingame third.
Michael Cherry got by Bob Stein-
metz (Naples) by about a foot at
the line to take fourth.
Mini Stocks were 11 entries
strong. Glenn Bidwell (Loxahatch-
ee) was the class of the field. He led
every lap of the heat race and the
feature.
Brian Bail (RPB) worked his
way up to second in the heat.
That was also where he
would spend the entire feature.


On lap 7 #75 Paul Phillips got
turned up the track and hit the
wall hard in turn four.
A lot of drivers battled for the
third spot including Ken Tubbs
(Boca Raton), Wayne Stout
(Sebring), Charles Perman
(West Palm Beach) and Gary
Hart (LaBelle). In the end it was
#57 Zack Perman (Ft. Pierce)
with the spot. Stout finished
fourth and Hart fifth.
Mini Mods was #10 Wayne
Hildebrand (Okeechobee) win-
ning the heat race. #21 Jack
McClain (Loxahatchee) was in the
lead of the first half of the feature
until Hildebrand got by on lap eight
going on to win the feature.
McClain ran second and Shawn
Reiss (Jupiter) finished third.
Pure Stock Division was 15 cars
strong this evening., Heat one
Tommy Hill (Clewiston) showed
his winning driving style by passing
six yes six cars in the first corner to
take the lead on the first lap.
Everyone slid high up the race
track and he was clear to drive by
on the bottom. Heat race two was
Conrad Molter (Naples) on some
new tires taking the win over the
eight car field. The Feature was
Tommy Hill From the start. While
Jonny Mosely (Belle Glade) and
Skip Talbot (Loxahatchee) traded
the second spot back and forth.
On lap twelve Skip Talbot found
his way by Tommy Hill to take the
lead. Hill finished second and
Moseley third.
Brian Morgan and Conrad
Molter rounded out the top five.
April 7, will bring back the Flori-
da Mini Sprints. Exciting winged
sprints with motorcycle engines
and 15-second lap times. Hope to
see all my good race track buddies
there. Cow-Boy out.
Also remember that April 7, we
will also feature Kid's Bicycle races.
Please bring your bikes and hel-
mets. There will be an Easter sur-
prise.

boaters to use caution as water
levels are low.
With the water level low, hurri-
cane debris scattered over the
lake bottom may be close enough
to the surface to be hazardous.
The public boat ramp at
Clewiston is also open. According
to Angie Kelly, Clewiston Recre-
ation Director, the city is urging
residents to use the boat ramps
with caution, and be aware of
how the drought has affected the
entire lake.
Okeechobee County Sheriff
Paul C. May and his staff have
already made plans to borrow air-
boats from the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) to use in lake search
and rescue. Several volunteers
have also come forward and
offered, the use of their airboats
and airplanes for search and res-
cue missions.
Sheriff May also stated that the
Okeechobee County Sheriff's
Office benefit bass tournament
scheduled to take place in April
has been canceled. The tourney
was to raise money for the Sher-
iff's Boys' Ranch.
"We are concerned about the
safety of those anglers coming
from around the state who are
not familiar with Lake Okee-
chobee and could possibly get in
trouble due to the low lake level,"
stated Sheriff May.

While some ramps
are useable, boaters
urged to use caution

By Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
LAKE OKEECHOBEE There
is no doubt that the Lake Okee-
chobee area is in the middle of a
severe drought. Lawns are
brown, plants are withering and
water restrictions' have been put
in place. But, nowhere is the
drought more evident than on
Lake Okeechobee.
Last year at this same time,
water levels on the 730-square-
mile lake were at 14.72 feet. On
Monday, April 2, the lake level was
at 10.48 feet and dropping.
On May 24, 2001, the lake
dropped to a record low of 8.97
feet. There is serious concern that
this could be the year that the
record will be broken.
Low lake levels mean some
boat ramps around the big lake
are no longer usable. Others may
be used with extreme caution,
since the end of the ramps may
no longer be in enough water to
float a boat.
Boaters are also encouraged to
use caution while out on the lake,
as lower lake levels mean even
experienced anglers may find
their boats beached on a sandbar
or colliding with submerged
debris.
In a community where many
residents rely on 'Lake Okee-
chobee for their livelihoods, the
possibility of the record being


INI/Katrina Elsken
As the level of Lake Okeechobee drops, the pier on the north
end of the lake can be seen. Normally the water comes up to
the end of the pier. This week, visitors could walk underneath
the pier on dry land almost to the end.


INI/Lorna LablonsKi
Low water levels mean that some canals around the lake are
completely dry, leaving boats resting on the dirt or vegetation
at the bottom of the canal.


Ward, Sr. boat ramp is still being
used but boaters are cautioned to
keep their trailers in the middle of
the ramp to avoid any problems.
Glades County Commissioner
Russell Echols explained that
back in 1990-91, the ramp was
extended and more work was
done on it in 2000 which has
helped the ramp in case of
drought.
The public boat ramp in Belle
Glade also useable. But, due to
the low water, storm debris is sur-
facing and extreme caution
should be used when navigating
in this area.
The public boat ramp at
Pahokee is open. Officials ask


public boat ramps around the
lake unusable. Others are still
operational, but extreme caution
is advised when using them.
The boat ramps at Okee-Tantie
Marina on the north side of the
lake are operational, but signs
have been erected to mark the
ends of the ramps.
When the new Scott Driver
facility was built (near Okee-
Tantie), longer ramps were
installed. As a result, there are cur-
rently no problems launching or
loading from these ramps.
The ramps behind the J&S Fish
Camp bar are no longer useable.
Where once there was ample
water to launch, there is now


nothing but mud. The public
ramp at J&S Fish Camp can still
be used, but with great caution.
There is only a narrow strip where
the water is deep enough to float
a boat.
The private ramp at Taylor
Creek Lodge has been dredged
out and is useable. But, property
manager Bill Palmer, strongly
advises to use common sense and
caution when using the ramp.
The ramps at Harney Pond are
good, but there is no longer
access to the lake because the
water level is so low. As with all
the other useable ramps, caution
is advised.
In Moore Haven, the Alvin


broken is not good news.
"This drought is killing the
economy," stated Captain Mike
-Shallan, a professional Lake
Okeechobee fishing guide.
"Guide services and tackle shops
are starting to feel the affect of
low water conditions. I've been
fishing Lake Okeechobee for
nearly 30 years and this is as bad
as it gets."
According to Capt. Shallan, the
fishing is still really good if you
can get out past the grass line.
But, the water is so low that get-
ting there and back is becoming
more and more difficult.
The water has dropped to a
level that has made some of the
