County discusses land plan


Rural Land
Stewardship receives
further study

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Rural
Land Stewardship (RLS) is
receiving further study and dis-
cussion by Glades County com-
missioners. The issue was a
topic of discussion at the April


10 meeting of the Glades County
Board of Commissioners.
It is a concept to protect rural
land that is used for agriculture,
or is an environmentally sensi-
tive area: It proposes to safe-
guard against urban sprawl,
which tends to swallow up rural
lands.
The county commissioners
want to carefully examine the
program before considering the
application submitted by Lykes
Bros. Inc.


The large corporation wishes
to designate about 250,000 acres
as a stewardship area. The Lykes
application states that it would
reimburse the county for
expenses incurred during
review and processing at local
and state government levels.
In order to qualify for the
rural land stewardship program,
a private land owner must have
at least 10,000 acres that are to
be considered for stewardship,
and the county must approve it.


A giving tradition: New Hope helps community

Church members show up on Saturdays so-they can help organize the free bread pro-
gram. From left to right: Myrna Hagan, Betty Mulvaney, Rebecca Herrington and Rita

Free bread, other baked goods


Local church
opens its doors
on Saturday

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Last
November, Pastor Darrel Bran-
ham with New Hope Indepen-
dent Baptist Church in Moore
Haven began a bread give-away
program.
If you ask him what motivated
his desire to do so, the pastor
answers humbily.
"I saw people that were in
need, and I felt we had to start a
bread program," he said.
Pastor Branham picks up
donated baked goods from
Sweet Bay grocery in Lehigh
Acres, and from the U-Save gro-
cery store in Clewiston.
According to him, the food
would more than likely end up in
dumpsters if the church did not
retrieve it to help the members of
the community who need it
most.
That isn't to say the food is

the awards are selected from
numerous applications on a
county-by-county basis.
This is the first year that appli-
cations have been received from
Glades County. Applicants are all
teachers who are innovative, ded-
icated, and resourceful in their
endeavor to educate their stu-
dents about the environment.
The winners receive recognition
and an award of $1,000.
Two teachers in Glades Coun-
ty have now been recognized for
See Award -Page 12


A benefit to the county would
be taxes that the private land
owner would continue to pay.
By most any other alternative,
the state government could buy
the rural land, but payment of
taxes to the county would be
lost.
The county is carefully con-
sidering the services of Family
Land Remembered LLC, a con-
sulting service specializing in
land stewardship, for develop-
ment, adoption and the


approval process with regard to
this particular item.
Pete Quasius, Audubon Soci-
ety of Collier County, who was
present during the meeting,
reminded the county that Family
Land Remembered is the main
professional company in the
field of RLS.
Others, though, were more
hesitant to move the issue for-
ward so quickly. John Austin

For those of you who we did
not mention along with those
mentioned, please know that we
could not have done it without
you all.
Dear Mr. Whitesell,
Thank you for your compli-
mentary comments about my
questions at the County Com-
mission meetings. County Attor-
ney Pringle has been very gra-
cious in his responses and the
questions about the planning
commission needed clear
answers, not only for the benefit
of our two new Planning Com-
missioners, but for the public as
well.
When the Planning Commis-
sion sits as the Board of Adjust-
ments reviewing applications for
Special Exceptions, it is of para-
mount importance for them to
cover all the bases in protecting
the intent of Glades County Land
Development Regulations while
granting landowners appropri-
ate and allowable use of their
property. Special Exception Per-
mits are not reviewed by any
other governmental agency in
Glades County.
Mr. Pringle made clear that
this Board can indeed stipulate
conditions of performance
when granting permits by Spe-
cial Exception.
Failure of the permitted prop-
erty owner to then comply with
those conditions constitutes a
code violation. Case in point, at
the April 9 Commissioners meet-
ing, the issue was raised alleging


that C&R Motorsports was exer-
cising their permitted use (that
was granted by Special Excep-
tion) without complying with
some of the stipulated condi-
tions and the result had required
intervention by Glades County
Sheriff Stuart Whiddon's office.
Mr. Hilton was directed to send a
Code Enforcement Officer to the
next C&R Motorsports event.
When he attended, he reported
that C&R was in full compliance
with requirements for security
and safety personnel in place.
Without those stipulations in
the permit, lives could have
been in jeopardy as the earlier
law enforcement intervention
resulted in the arrest of a man
with a gun, and Sheriff Whiddon
indicated he did not care to have
his deputies working the park.
Failure of the permitted to com-
ply with Glades County's stipu-
lated conditions could have shut
down their park.
In Larry Hilton's letter to the.
editor of the Democrat (copies
were on the sign-in table at
Tuesday's meeting), he dis-
cussed another letter to the edi-
tor and commented about his
approval of the FPL plant site
application, stating "to hang
conditions on that approval
would amount to extortion."
That is true as FPL did not have
to apply for Special Exception
permit, only a site review permit
to assure compliance with
Glades County's Land Develop-
ment Regulations, which Mr.
Hilton reviewed and approved
between September 8 and Sep-
tember 11.
However, what he did not say
was, during the time meetings
with FPL and Glades County
were ongoing, May 9, 2006 to be


exact, Glades County changed
its Land Development Regula-
tions that required a Special
Exception permit application
before the Planning Commis-
sion Board of Adjustments to
site a power plant. Had that
change not been made, the
Board of Adjustments could
have stipulated conditions in
accordance with Florida law and
Glades County ordinances;
among some of the allowable
conditions, we could have
required independent consult-
ants to assure water quality and
quantity standards met our
needs, not just basic Water Man-
agement review; we could have
stipulated specific traffic mitiga-
tion. As it is, the Commissioners'
September 12, 2006 Resolution
of Support was truly superfluous
and though according to Mr.
Hilton is was not an approval, it
certainly was not a condition-
stipulating statement. According
to FPL representatives, Glades
County is co-joined in their
application with state agencies;
as such, Glades County cannot
stipulate any conditions.
Again, thank you for your
kind words. It may seem my
questions are redundant, but it is
imperative to be fully informed
because the decisions made by
both these commissions will
affect Glades County for many
years. And please know I appre-
ciate your interest and concern
for Glades County exemplified
by your attendance at Commis-
sion meetings. You, Jo Ran-
dolph, and Muriel Green certain-
ly represent your Community
Association (Lakeport) very
well, as do Ellen Beers of Muse,
Ellen Geake of Indian Hills and
Bev Emerick of Buckhead Ridge.


Citizen's POWER coalition names chairman


MOORE HAVEN Moore
Haven native Tommy Perry has
been named chairman of the Cit-
izens POWER Coalition, a local
grassroots organization in sup-
port of the proposed FPL Glades
Power Park.
Perry is the president of John-
son-Prewitt & Associates, a pro-
fessional engineering and survey-
ing firm based in Clewiston. As
chairman of the Citizens POWER
Coalition, Perry is working with
other coalition members to foster
support for Florida Power &
Light's plans to build an
advanced-technology clean coal
plant in Glades County.
"There has been a tremendous
outpouring of support for the proj-
ect from the people of Hendry,


Glades and the surrounding coun-
ties," Mr. Perry said. "More than
1,000 people have signed petitions
in support of the project, and sev-
eral hundred people have volun-
teered to assist in the campaign to
gain approval for the plant."
The FPL Glades Power Park is
expected to bring significant eco-
nomic opportunity to the entire
Glades region, delivering jobs, tax
dollars and economic stimulus.
"The people in Glades and
Hendry counties recognize how
important it is to support this
project. I'm very excited about
my role as chairman and plan to
do all I can to make sure we
don't let this opportunity pass us
by," Mr. Perry said.
.The project will provide an


average of 1,600 jobs annually
during a five-year construction
period. Once in operation, the
plant is expected to employ 180
full-time people and create
more than 100 indirect jobs in
the region.
The project also is expected to
provide an average of more than
$21 million annually in property
taxes for Glades County and sever-
al million dollars in property taxes
each year for Hendry County. That
money is desperately needed for
infrastructure improvements, Mr.
Perry said.
Mr. Perry, who grew up in
Glades County and attended
Moore Haven High School, cur-
rently resides in Moore Haven.
He received both his bache-


lor's degree and master's degree
in agricultural engineering from
the University of Florida in 1989
and 1991, respectively. After
obtaining his degrees, Mr. Perry
lived along Florida's west coast for
several years before returning to
the Glades region. Perry and his
wife, Laura, have four children:
Tom, 10, Kate, 8, and twins Joe
and David,5.
"It was always my intent to live
in this area," he said. "I enjoy the
smaller town life, and it's a good
place to. raise my family. But I
want to know that when my kids
grow up, they'll have good job
opportunities here."

POWER Coalition is available by

Arrest made in state-wide housing scam


TALLAHASSEE Florida
Agriculture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles H.
Bronson has announced the
arrest of a Bunnell, man for
defrauding at least 11 Florida res-
idents out of thousands of dollars
in a low income home building
assistance scam.
Todd M. Findley, 42, has been
charged with three counts of
grand theft and one count of
organized scheme to defraud, all
third degree felonies, following a
two year investigation by the
Department's Office of Agricultur-
al Law Enforcement. The investi-
gation originated with four com-
plaints received through the
Division of Consumer Services'
consumer helpline against Find-
ley's business, European Ameri-
can Heritage Foundation. As the
investigation continued, officers
uncovered seven more victims.
Investigators say Findley
offered to help low income fami-

lies get a decent home that they
would help to build. Findley took
$2,500 from families as a down
payment. He told them they
would be required to work at
least 500 hours on other founda-
tion homes to become a partner
in the program and then their
home would be built with the
help of the other families.
At least 11 families signed con-
tracts and gave Findley a total of
$27,500 but no homes have been
built. Investigators with Agricul-
tural Law Enforcement say Find-
ley made ongoing excuses as to
why the homes weren't being
built and did not give the victims
an opportunity to fulfill the agree-
ment they signed.
"It is outrageous that these
families pinned their hope of the
American dream on this suspect,"
Mr. Bronson said. "Not only did
they not get their homes built,
these families who least can
afford it were taken for thousands


of dollars. I hope this arrest sends
a message to scam artists that our
Agricultural Law Enforcement
officers will aggressively investi-
gate and take action against those
who would harm our most vul-
nerable citizens."
Findley has been booked into
the Flagler County jail. The eleven
victims are from throughout the
state, including Miami, West Palm
Beach, New Port Richey and Palm
Coast. Mr. Bronson said he
believes there may be additional
victims of the scam as the investi-
gation is continuing.
The Commissioner is urging
anyone who thinks they may have
been victimized by Findley to call
his Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement at 1-800-342-5869.
Mr. Bronson credited the Fla-
gler County Sheriff's Department
and Flagler County State Attor-
ney's Office for its assistance in
the investigation.

HENDRY COUNTY The
37th annual Earth Day will be cel-
ebrated Saturday, April 21 in over
180 nations. Every year more
countries are celebrating this
essential event to teach and
encourage all citizens of all coun-
tries the importance of caring
enough to take care of the earth.
Locally, the celebration is
Earth Day in the Park, at Barron
Park, which started seven years
ago under the leadership of Tina
Noel. This year the event is under
the direction of Lois James.
The mission of Earth Day is to


It is a belief that Earth Day's
grassroots efforts can ultimately
help relieve some of the world's
most egregious problems.
The combined good-faith
efforts of the masses will create
major, relevant improvements
worldwide. Common people
must act together to represent
common global problems and
interests, supporters of the
nationally recognized day argue.
This event is free for everyone
and promises to be an occasion
to teach what others are doing
for the good earth. Community
groups, schools, churches, agen-

There will be entertainment and

Day, said Lois James. Its a ltie to
learn and to begin to do whatever
we can as individuals to keep our
earth as it is, or even improve it.
Most of all we must all learn how
we can keep from destroying the

Be earth-friendly: conserve electricity on Earth Day


N. FT. MYERS Join thou-
sands of citizens throughout the
nation who will celebrate Earth
Day on April 22 by making a com-
mitment to energy conservation.
There are many easy steps you
can take in your home to make a
difference for the environment,
and many of them will make a dif-
ference for your pocketbook too!
Follow these energy-efficient tips
from LCEC to conserve electricity
AND reduce your electric bill:
Set your thermostat at 78
degrees Fahrenheit. Every degree


cooler costs eight percent more.
Replace filters in your air
conditioner once a month, and
have your unit serviced every
year.
Use ceiling fans to assist in
keeping cool, but use them wise-
ly. Don't leave ceiling fans running
in empty rooms.
Your water heater is the sec-
ond largest expense on your elec-
tric bill. To save money, set its
temperature to between 120 and
140 degrees.

To maintain a reliable supply of electricity for the growing
population of Florida, fuel diversity is a must.

Florida Power & Light Company has announced plans to build
an advanced clean coal technology power plant in Glades
County. There are several reasons why coal is the right choice
for the FPL Glades Power Park, and fuel diversity is No. 1.

Available and Affordable

Coal supplies are abundant in this country. The U.S.
Department of Energy estimates there is enough coal in this
country to meet the nation's energy needs for the next
200 to 300 years. Greater use of coal could help increase
Florida's energy independence and lessen reliance on natural
gas and foreign oil.

In recent years, the volatility of oil and natural gas prices has
become apparent. Meanwhile, the price of coal has remained


relatively stable. An investment in greater fuel diversity will
protect the energy supply from the effects of price spikes
for any one fuel and helps to stabilize electricity rates for
consumers.
In addition, Florida's natural gas supplies come from two
pipelines both originating in the Gulf of Mexico which
are highly vulnerable to hurricanes and other major storms. At
the FPL Glades Power Park, a 60-day supply of coal could be
stored onsite to ensure a reliable and steady supply of fuel is
available even if new shipments are delayed due to a hurricane
or other event.

Meeting the Demand
State officials have been urging power companies to further
diversify their fuel portfolios to ensure a reliable supply of
power while maintaining stable electricity rates. A diverse mix
of energy sources, each with its own advantages, will help


companies meet the growing demands of American consumers.
Coal is a crucial component of America's energy future.
Today's modern coal plants produce electricity while being
good environmental stewards. New technologies allow power
companies to use coal more efficiently and with fewer
emissions than ever before. The FPL Glades Power Park
will operate well within the strict state and federal emission
requirements and be protective of the environment.
Equally important, the FPL Glades Power Park is designed to
be readily adaptable to new technologies as they are developed.
These advancements; coupled with the availability and afford-
ability of coal, are ensuring coal has a place in America's energy
future.
For these reasons, coal is the right choice for the FPL Glades
Power Park. To learn more about the project, please visit

A Moore Haven student

donates her 4-H proceeds


BRIGHTON SEMINOLE
RESERVATION Skyler Burke,
fifth grader at Moore Haven Ele-
mentary, won the prestigious
Blue.Ribbon for Reserve Grand
Champion in the 2007 Seminole
Indian 4-H Livestock Show and
Sale held March 28 and 29 at
Brighton.
From the proceeds of the sale
of her steer the youngster gener-
ously donated $2,000 to.the Doc
Keen Memorial Scholarship
Fund. The steer, purchased by
Moses Osceola, President of the
Seminole Tribe of Florida, Inc.,
sold at auction for $8 a pound.
"We sure do appreciate the
donations, said Donna Keen.
"Doc loved to help all the young-
sters in 4-H and donated his time
over the years and this is a won-
derful and thoughtful thing for
Skyler and her family to do." The
fund is set up to help deserving
youth with their college educa-
tion, said Keen.
Skyler is the daughter of Con-
nie Haught and granddaughter of
Mabel and Michael Haught of
Palmdale. "We just loved Doc
Keen and he was the Tribe's vet
for a long time," said Connie
Haught. "I knew Doc Keen my
whole life and this is just some-
thing our family wanted to do
and Skyler was happy to do it,"
she said.
This was Skyler's second year
in 4-H and the plucky youngster
also won the 2007 Jr. Showman-
ship Award for the second year in
arow.
Ribbons given for showman-
ship are based on the handling
of the steer or swine in the ring


and the exhibitors' skill using
the show stick.
The steer judge, Zack Conlin of
Indiantown, repeatedly reminded
the Seminole youth as they exhib-
ited their animals in the ring that
winning the showmanship award
required a special talent. "When
you are in the ring you have to
keep your eye on the judge at all
times. Don't take your eyes off the
judge," Conlin said.
Skyler excelled in keeping her
steer calm and responding coop-
eratively to the use of the show
stick, but most of all her own
unique showmanship in the ring
included a constant beaming
smile, an attribute the judge
approved. "I just worked with my
steer a lot to make sure he would
get tame," said Skyler.
Skyler said she spent many
hours working with her steer,
especially teaching the steer to
follow her lead. She said that
kid's who let their parents do all
the work would not have an obe-
dient steer that will follow them
in the ring and behave.
Skyler said her family helped
her through a crisis when she
almost lost her steer when a cap-
illary vein in the neck got cut and
infected. Her steer could barely
walk and lost 50 pounds. Her
mom had to help ice the wound
for three nights and days "If it
weren't for my family I probably
wouldn't have won," she said.
Skyler named her steer "Tig-
ger" and it weighed 1,190
pounds. Skyler's show animal
came from the herd of her uncle,
Amos Tiger of Brighton.

A woman's work is

(and was) never done!


Recollections of
Harley Arnold as told
to MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
We have been trying to learn
how housekeeping went in the
early days in Florida. The meat and
bones of it, so to speak. An unex-
pected resource has turned up -
Okeechobee County's Harley
Arnold. Mr. Arnold is the youngest
of six children born to William
Eston and Mittie Raulerson Arnold.
"My dad was always out work-
ing, so I ended up spending a lot of
time with my mom," he said.
"When I'd get home from
school, of course, first of all I'd
change my clothes. Then, of course
I was starving, so I'd get a cooked
sweet potato and a piece of
cooked, smoked bacon out of the
safe to eat. (A "safe" is a cupboard
with screen or pierced tin sides for
air circulation where food was
kept.) My next chore was to milk
the cow, and then I'd go out to the
kitchen building behind the main
house. Behind it was a big wooden
box where wood for the stove was
kept. It had a sloped tin roof to keep
the rain out so you would always
have drywood to cook with.
I'd split logs that were cut to fit
inside the fire box of the stove, not
too big. We lit the wood with splin-
ters cut from the tap root of a pine
tree, called lighter wood. It was
called lighter wood since it had so
much turpentine; it would catch
fire and burn really fast.
She cooked on a wood stove.
Some of them had a water tank
that kept some water hot, but she
didn't care for that. She said it
would get all nasty sitting there and
she'd rather heat it as it was need-
ed. She wanted one with six "burn-
ers" on top. Below them on the left
there was a box for the fire with a
grate on the bottom where the
ashes fell. Now the closer things
were to the side with the fire, the
hotter it was and the faster they
cooked. The oven was below the
cook top and the closer to the fire it
was, the hotter it was. It was hot
enough to back any time she was
cooking, I remember biscuits she'd
put on the far side, then open the
oven and turn the pan so they
would cook evenly. There were
two little warming ovens over the
top where you could put some-
thing to keep it warm.
Now my mom told me that
there were still plenty of panthers


around when she and my dad
bought this land on Potter Road. So
when she washed, she put the
baby in a wash tub so roaming
panthers would not get them.
See, she was alone .a lot of the
time. My dad would leave for
Bluefield Sunday to go haul
oranges to Fort Pierce and not
return until Saturday.
Now, a lot of people say a pan-
ther will come to a pregnant
woman. My mom told me one
time that when she was pregnant
with my brother Robert, a panther
came one night.
The house had wooden shutters
on it. One night after the shutters were
dosed, she could hear a panther
walking around outside the house,
and then scratching on the door.
You know, people call those 'the
good old days." In some ways they
were good, but we don't respect
what these pioneers went through
nearly enough and we should.
I know, because when my dad
was away and my mom and I were
alone, she would tell me:the stories.
We didn't have electric for a long
time up here. Our bath tub was a
number three wash tub out in the
yard or in the kitchen ifitwas cold.
We'd heat water in a bucket to
wash with and not just once week.
We could set a bucket of water out
in the sun in the morning to warm. If
you'd been working in the fields and
were dusty there was no way you
could gowithouta bath!
When you forgot to set out your
water, it was a cold, cold bath. All
you'd hear was a splash and a gasp
as someone hit that cold water!
Every Monday was wash day for
my mom. We got out the tubs,
pumped the water by hand and
heated it up. That was the start of a
long, hard day. The wash was
scrubbed by hand on a wash
board, wrung out by hand, rinsed,
wrung out by hand again and hung
up on the line to dry.
I remember one Monday, it was
wet out and I had me a little red
wagon and I played with it right out
there in the mud and got my
clothes some muddier than I

should have. My mom was preg-
nant at the time and had just fin-
ished up and laid down to rest. Boy,
did I ever hear about it when she
saw me. She had just finished a full
day's washing.
The first washing machine I
remember had a big tub with an
agitator and it would wring the
clothes out for you. It had a gaso-
line motor. It was a big improve-
ment over doing it by hand!
The first refrigerator my wife,
Ruth and I had was powered by
kerosene. It had a wick and a lamp
at the bottom of it. That wick had to
be kept clean and trimmed just right
and it would burn with a blue flame.
One time I heard about two fel-
las who were talking. One said he
had just been out on the lake and
had caught him a 20 pound bass.
He just went on about this fish.
When he stopped, the other fella
said that he too had been out on the
lake and had hooked something he
almost couldn't pull up. When he
finally did get it up, he said, it was an
old kerosene lantern still burning.
Well, the first fella said he didn't
believe that for a minute. The sec-
ond fella said, Tell you what, you
take ten pounds off that bass and I'll
blow out the lamp!"
So it goes here in Okeechobee!

April 5, 2007
Office of the Governor
The Capitol
Tallahassee, FL 32399-0001
Dear Governor Crist:
On behalf of the Board of Trustees of Glades Electric Cooperative headquartered in Moore Haven, Florida, I am writing this letter to express
our support for the approval of FPL's proposed Glades Power Park coal project. Like you, we are Florida residents who value our state's unique
and natural beauty, and we work hard in our operations to protect its natural resources. As general manager of a fast growing, non-profit electric
distribution cooperative, I also am convincedthat we need a reliable, affordable supply of electric energy to meet Florida's economic needs. The
FPL project will do both.
Glades County is a rural county that needs clean industry, good jobs, and tax revenues. Florida's environmental regulations are some of the
strictest in the country. The FPL project will use one of the most efficient, clean pulverized coal technologies available as well as state of the art
in pollution control. This combination will insure that it will meet or exceed our stringent environmental requirements and therefore protect
Glades County, the Everglades, and the rest of Florida. This project will also bring hundreds of much needed permanent and construction jobs
to Glades County that will provide opportunity to our residents and their children and significantly increase the tax revenues that can be used
to build schools and make other sorely needed improvements that are afforded more affluent counties.
FPL's project will benefit Florida by supplying additional generating capacity necessary to meet the ever increasing demand for electric energy
driven by our population growth and customer use. It will also benefit the entire state by increasing the diversity of Florida's fuel portfolio and
reducing our reliance on natural gas which, as we have learned, becomes extremely vulnerable when hurricane storms affect the Gulf of Mexico.
Having an additional electric generating facility that will be able to store several months of fuel as opposed to hours, will greatly benefit Florida's
recovery efforts when these disasters strike. Additionally, this project will help reduce our dependence on foreign supplies of energy.
I realize there has been a great deal of discussion concerning whether or not the FPL project is right for Florida. Glades Electric Cooperative
relies on Seminole Electric Cooperative to provide us wholesale power. As a member of Seminole's Board of Trustees, I recently reviewed the
results of a comprehensive review of available generating technologies and fuels before our Board approved the addition of a third coal unit. I
was pleased to know that FPL is proposing essentially the same technology and pollution control equipment as Seminole's proposed coal plant
in Putnam County. I also know that based on Seminole's experience in Putnam County, a well thought out project, using state of the art technology and
the most advanced pollution control equipment will be accepted by the residents, provide numerous benefits, and protect the environment We
believe the FPL project will be as beneficial to Glades County as the Seminole Project is to Putnam County.
For all the above reasons, we strongly support FPL's Glades coal project. I remain...

Drought hits area farmers hard


By MaryAnn Morris
INI Florida
This year's dry season is the
third driest season recordable in
South Florida history. The United
States Drought Monitor, which
identifies general drought areas
by intensity, has recently classi-
fies all areas of the 16-county
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District as either moderate
or severe drought zones with a
prediction of possible drought
intensification.
A sudden, sharp drop in
water levels across the district
the past week, made worse by
higher temperatures and wind,
have led water managers to
tighten water restrictions already
in place for the Okeechobee Ser-
vice Area, the Lower East Coast
and Upper East Coast Areas.
However, water managers, in
a telephone press conference
held Tuesday, April 3, said that
agricultural users in the Lake
Okeechobee Service Area will be
required to reduce their water
consumption by 45 percent.
Grazing livestock, cattle and
horses are suffering the lack of
forage. The grass is not growing.
"We are very concerned
about the reduction of water,"
said Ed Hamilton, Vice President
of Duda Farm Fresh Foods, Inc.
"With so little water, without
good rain, there is not enough
water to grow our crops. Now if
there was periodic rain like
we've had the last six days we
would most likely be okay, but, if
we have another dry spell we
would be in trouble."
"The recent rains will keep us
going for two weeks. We have
six weeks left in our growing
season. If we were not this close
to the end, it would be a real
problem. The lettuce, celery,
radishes and sweet corn we
grow need water," he continued.
"In talking with the consult-
ants with the Corps of Engineers,
we realize that the 'regulation
schedules being proposed will
not give us enough water to

grow crops. The sugar crops are
in real trouble now," said Mr.
Hamilton.
We are starting to see the
effects of the drought," said Judy
Sanchez, Director of Corporate
Communications for U.S. Sugar
Co.
"With the water level so low,
we can't get water to some of
the farms. We have actually
been under water restrictions
since November of last year. The
capacity of the pumps will be in
control of the amount of water
we get and they will not give 45
percent. This could be a very
serious economic impact to all
the farms. The drought of 2001
made an impact of $100 million
and this one will be worse the
lake level is lower than it was in
2001. Back then just this region
was declared a drought area.
This time the whole of South
Florida is affected."
"This is what I call a "second
winter," because the grass is
brown, just as if it had been
frozen. When the cows are
down grazing and you see the
areas they've grazed, you won-
der what they are finding to eat,"
said Sonny Williamson of
Williamson Cattle Company.
With horses, this means they
will eat more sand, increasing
the risk of colic.
"More people are buying hay
than ever before," said Pat
Hogue, Extension Agent at the
Agricultural Extension Service in
Okeechobee. Hay buyers have
noticed that feed dealers run out
of hay that is being brought in

from out of state to supply Flori-
da's livestock needs.
"The old farmers around tell
me that drought is Mother
Nature telling you what your
stocking rate should be," said
Mr. Hogue. "Right now most cat-
tle don't look good at all. Some
farmers who have low-lying
areas still have some grass, but
the others don't."
"We bought enough forage
last year to last in fact, we
thought we had over-bought,"
said Ben Butler of Butler Oaks
Farm, Inc. Ben Butler and his
father Bob Butler both have both
a dairy and beef cattle.
"It's not just the grazing.
When you talk about grass, it's
the grass you crop for hay. All the
water we normally use is from a
reclaimed water pond but its
low. We are having to re-dig old
water holes in the pastures for
ground water for the cattle to
drink, he said.
"We have to watch the water
holes carefully," said Mr.
Williamson. "When the cattle
have to walk so far down to get
water, it stirs up mud. That gives
a huge potential for degradation
of the water. Then, of course,
they like to stand in the water to
cool off, too."
"There have been more ani-
mals die from eating poison
plants this year than we've seen
before," said Mr. Hogue. "When
the grass and forage thin out and
don't grow, the weeds keep
growing. Grazing livestock, that
won't touch these plants when
there is grass to eat, will eat


these plants when there is noth-
ing else to graze on."
"Wildfires are a worry, too,"
said Ben Butler. "There's about
1,300 acres next to us that has
been vacant for two years. It
would be a major fuel source for
a fire. We make sure our heavy
equipment is ready to go and
either my dad is here or I am all
the time."
"I've been in fires like that,"
said Mr. Williamson, "pulling a
water wagon, trying to put out
one of those fires. You almost
can't do it."
"Now that corn is being used
for ethanol, we have seen feed
costs rise 30 percent since last
September, commented Mr. But-
ler. "We have local growers
grow corn for our silage, but it
takes water to grow corn. If we
lose that corn, we are that much
closer to importing silage from
out of state."
"It's going to mean lighter
weight calves going to sale this
fall. That's going to hurt the
economy," said Mr. Williamson.
Gulf Coast Citrus Growers
Association has member grow-
ers in Charlotte Collier, Glades
Lee and Hendry Counties. Ron
Hamel, executive Director of the
group had this to say:
"We have 140,000 acres of
citrus under cultivation in five
counties and about a third of
that depends on the Caloosa-
hatchee River and Lake Okee-
chobee for its water. The rest is
irrigated with ground water. This
is a critical time for our citrus
which is blooming now. Lack of
water could have a serious
impact for setting fruit for net
year. There was $35 million in
damage done to citrus in the
drought of 2001 and the value of
the fruit is double now."
The question is what will be
the cost? What will that do to the
price of our food?"

Award
Continued From Page 1
their accomplishments in connect-
ing their students to the unique
environment of Florida. They are
Sherri Fleming and Crystal Drake.
The awards were announced
and made at the regular meeting of
the Glades County School Board
April 12th.
Sherri Fleming is a first grade
teacher at West Glades School. As a
result of her involvement in the
environmental colloquium course
in her studies
At Florida Gulf Coast University
she gained a deeper appreciation
for the environment. In her applica-
tion, Mrs. Fleming writes, "During
this class, I enjoyed an eye-opening
experience in which I gained a
great deal of appreciation for my
environment and a greater under-
standing for the need to educate
our young people on protecting
our great ecosystems."
In every aspect of her teaching
she relates the importance of the
environment to her young stu-
dents. Through reading and writing
they learn about their Florida envi-


ronment. They search school
grounds for spider webs, study
Florida bats, identify and track birds
and animals sharing their school-
yard.
The students also learn about
taking care of fish and water quality
in their fish aquarium and learn
bout the chain of life through the
class terrarium that houses insects,
lizards, plants and frogs.
Students are taken on field trips
and speakers are invited into the
classroom to talk about protecting
wildlife.
Mrs. Fleming recalls an
encounter.
"While on a scavenger hunt, a
whooping crane flew over our stu-
dents and dropped a feather. My
students believe this was a gift from
the cranes because 'they appreci-
ate us being nice to them,'" she
said.
Crystal Drake, a social studies
teacher at Moore Haven Junior -,
Senior High challenged her stu-
dents by giving them the task of
researching the local issue of the
newly proposed coal-burning
power plant in Glades County and
uncovering all the perspective of
the community.


Her students did extensive
research to develop a presentation
looking into all sides of the issue.
Their goal was not to take sides, but
to present all the issues and con-
cerns, environmental, political,
social and economic. They heard
from public officials, community
leaders, local citizens and power
plant owners. Mrs. Drake encour-
aged her students to deal with an
actual issue and discover the many
environmental issues involved.
"We have learned through this
project that small changes in peo-
ple's daily lives can save lots of elec-
tricity and thus eliminate the need
for so many additional power
plants in Florida in the future," Ms.
Drake said in her description.
School board member Tom
Gaskins tbok the time to recognize
both awards recipients.
"These awards could not go to
any two better recipients in the
school system," he said. "Both
Crystal and Sherri have worked dili-
gently with their students in this
regard. I'm proud of each one and
am so glad they have put Glades
County on the map by applying for
- and winning these significant
awards."

Yenis Jiron opened a party store where you can buy, rent or request a decorating service. It
is located at 401 South Highway 27 in Moore Haven.


Store
Continued From Page 1
just as willing to get to know Ms.
Jiron, who keeps her store bustling
with the latest and greatest items
for parties.
A trip to the store will show
attractive decorations for many
types of party themes and holi-
days. The store is stocked with
baskets, banners, party favors,
small toys, pifiatas, small ceram-
ics, and balloons.
The owner carries small toys for
presents, basket surprises, party
favors and stocking stuffers. Chil-
dren may be pleased with the inex-


pensive fashion dolls, action fig-
ures, stuffed animals and games.
Almost anything that a person
can think of to liven their party can
be found at the local business.
Other items include pretty but
practical party necessities like table
settings, tablecloths, gift bags, and
gift wrap. Ms. Jiron also provides
rental chairs, tables, and eleven
bounce houses.
Even so, Ms. Jiron is looking for-
ward to providing even more to
local residents getting ready for that
perfect party. According to her,
additional items should be arriving
this month items to fit other fes-
tive occasions such as baby show-
ers, sweet fifteens, baptisms and


graduations.
Ms. Jiron is a Clewiston resident
with family ties in Moore Haven.
She said she looks forward to serv-
ing the community for many years
to come.
"I hope our store merchandise
helps make parties a lot more fun,"
Ms. Jiron said.
If you need some help getting
the party started, Ms Jiron will
make an appointment to decorate
for you. Stop by the store, or call in
advance at 946-9197. The address
is 401 South Highway 27 in Moore
Haven, and can be found next to
Mickey's Bait and Tackle, and Sun-
shine Appliances.

There is a free bread program at New Hope Independent Baptist Church every Saturday.
Baked goods are available from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. The location is 638 Yaun Road, east of the

goodwill through the event, as well
as generate renewed enthusiasm
for school athletics.
This is an opportunity to show
young athletes how important they


are to the community, organizers of
the event said, and to welcome
Coach Jason Bond. It is also an
opportunity for caring adults to
mentor young people.
Positive school related activities
are necessary in order to encour-
age teens to make good decisions
and prepare for the challenge of
life, according to Deputy Paul


Gaeta, one of the deputies helping
to put the event together. It helps if
parents and alumni get involved,
he said.

event, contact Deputy Paul Gaeta at

officer at Moore Haven Junior-

Program
Continued From Page 1
bad in any way, the pastor promis-
es it is perfectly good food and still
quite delicious.
While the program started off as
a bread give-away program, it has
since blossomed to include such
items as sweet baked goods,
doughnuts, pastries, pies and
cakes. Other types of bread include
whole wheat, rye, bagels, rolls and
French and Cuban bread.
It is a calling, the pastor said, that
has led the church to help the needy
in the area. There are plenty in the
area who benefit from the church's
kindness, and many of those would
otherwise have gone without had it
not been for the help.


As a result, the program has
been steadily growing.
When the program began in
November not many people knew
about it but the church advertised
and spread the news through the
local grapevine. It was then, Pastor
Branham said, that the amount of
people showing up increased by
quite a bit.
SBut he isn't alone in reaching
out to the community, the pastor
said.
Betty Mulvaney, Rita Herrington
and other members help organize
the program on Saturday morn-
ings. For them, they said, it is a
chance to see old friends, and
make new friends.
"The parking lot would be full
when I got here," said Betty Mul-
vaney, remembering the times


she's participated in the outreach
effort, and how drastically it
seemed residents need it.
New Hope Independent Baptist
Church began 17 years ago. It has
about 34 full-time members,
according to Pastor Branham, who
has been serving the congregation
for a little over two years. They are
gradually growing and have begun
groundbreaking on a new church
building.
"Our arms are open. We wel-
come everybody," said Pastor
Branham.
Bread and other baked goods
are free on Saturdays from 10 a.m.
until 2 p.m. The church is located
on the east side of the bridge at 638
Yaun Road.

Land
Continued From Page 1
Collier of Okeechobee was pres-
ent during discussion of the land
stewardship. He advised the
county to handle it very carefully.
"Slow down and talk to other
people in agriculture," Mr. Collier
told commissioners.
Mark Morton, senior vice pres-
ident of Lykes Land Investments
Inc., said the stewardship pro-
gram offered advantages to
landowners working with the
community and local govern-
ment to create self-sustaining,
mixed-use towns, all the while
preserving viable agricultural
and environmentally sensitive
lands.


"As a century old, family-
owned company, Lykes has
always considered stewardship
of its land holdings a primary
responsibility," Mr. Morton said.
In other news, the commis-
sion adopted an ordinance to
change the number of members
serving on the county's planning
commission from five to seven,
as well as a Glades County resi-
dency requirement.
Two current members have
not had their memberships
expire, and they will continue in
their positions. These members
are Shannon Hall and Sam Grif-
fin. Reappointments to the plan-
ning commission include David
Dannenhauer, Lew Edders, and
Jack Wilson.
Greg Margerum and Ellen


Beers were chosen to fulfill
duties for the two additional
seats created by the ordinance.
Planning commission
appointees wear many hats
while they are in this position.
They oversee the licensing
board, board of adjustments, and
the planning and zoning board
for the county.
Shannon Hall is a current
appointee whose membership
does not expire until 2008. She
takes her position seriously, and
is encouraged by the addition of
two more members which will
increase the commission from
five to seven people.
"It's terrific; there will be lots
of input," said Ms. Hall.

Being right or wrong; when belief wins the day


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Someone told me that the best
words to hear are "You're right!"
and the worst words to hear are
"You're -pm
wrong!" I'm
sure there are
others but -p
these words ^ -
can be very
affirming or
very discon-
certing. To be
told we're
wrong means SamuelS.
that there may Thomas
be a struggle
ahead, things will have to be reor-
ganized, we may have to discard
something we hold dearly; friends
and other like-minded people
may not be that friendly after all.
It's not so good to be told
"You're wrong!" Wrong answers
mean trouble.


We're a "have-it-your-way"
people when we can be; wrong
says we may not be having it our
way after all. One of the commen-
tators on TV was talking about tax
audits and advising that simple
things may trigger an audit; like
not stapling forms to the returns
in the right place. One little error
and be ready to dig out records
and try to remember where all of
those numbers came from.
Someone once sent hundreds of
invitations to their wedding to all
of their friends, but put my home
address on them instead of the
Church address. I had visions of
hundreds of people showing up
in my front yard asking "Where's
the wedding?" and put a sign on
my front door before leaving for
the Church. The couple was visi-
bly upset by this error; somebody
was wrong about a very impor-
tant detail on a very important day
for them and it made a mark. I
have often thought about the
well-known "Doubting Thomas"


as someone who had it wrong
and was a "have-it-your-way" per-
son in his own generation. When
we're right, we have an inside
track on the way things really are;
when we're wrong, we miss part
of reality and are out of touch.
That can be very disagreeable
indeed! For Thomas, there were
his friends the other disciples -
who told him about seeing the
risen Lord when he was not with
them (John 20:19ff). I can appre-
ciate Thomas' difficulty in believ-
ing that someone had risen from
the dead; that kind of thing does-
n't happen. The other disciples
affirmed that it was really so; that
they were sure in what they had
seen. Thomas was not so sure.
This did not conform to what peo-
ple knew or what took place
every day, or how the world
seemed to work. Thomas, under-
standably, has his doubts, but he
is willing to be proven wrong. He
sets the conditions for revising his
world-view and says "Unless I see


How to make prayer effective


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
As we attempt to develop
effective prayer lives, there are
certain things to keep in mind to
make our prayer effective.
First, we must pray without
calling undue attention to our-
selves. One of Jesus' criticisms of
the Pharisees was that "they love
to pray standing in the syna-
gogues and on the corners of the
streets, that they may be seen of
men" (Matthew 6:5). Our prayers
should never become a matter of
display.
Second, we must not allow
our prayers to degenerate into
mere formality. Jesus warned
against using "vain repetitions" in
prayers (Matthew 6:7). For exam-
ple, think of the way we some-


times pray at mealtime or bed-
time. If prayer becomes a series of
set words and cliches that have
no real meaning to the person
saying them, then we should re-
think what we are saying.
Third, we must pray with the
full confidence of faith in God.
How do we know that He will
answer us according to His wis-
dom? God is a liberal giver and
we must take our request to Him
"in faith, nothing doubting"
(James 1:5-6).
Fourth, we must always pray
according to the will of God.
"Now, this is the confidence that
we have in Him, that if we ask
anything according to His will, He
hears us. And if we know that He
hears us, whatever we ask, we
know that we have the petitions


that we have asked of Him" (I
John 5:14-15).
Fifth, we must be living lives of
submission to God in order for
our prayers to be effective with
Him. "For the eyes of the Lord are
on the righteous and His ears are
open to their prayers; but the face
of the Lord is against those who
do evil" (I Peter 3:12).
Sixth, we must be willing to do
whatever is necessary on our part
to have our prayers answered. For
example, it is foolish to pray for
health and not take care of one-
self; it is foolish to pray for the
church and not support her every
good work; it is foolish to pray for
the lost and not try to reach your
friends who are lost.
Let us be encouraged to think
on these things.


the mark of the nails in his hands
and put my finger in the mark of
the nails, and put my hand in His
side, I will not believe." Thomas
has been asked to admit that he
was wrong; but he also recog-
nizes that maybe, just maybe, his
view needs to be changed. As the
story concludes, Jesus visits again
when he is present and invites
him to "Reach out your hand and
put it in my side. Do not doubt,
but believe."
Thomas then affirms "My Lord
and my God!" and he is told


"Blessed are those who have not
seen and yet have come to
believe." That has been the rest of
us ever since. The story of some-
one rising from the dead is hard
for some to believe; that He
should want us to rise with Him
may be even harder. It is easier for
the indifferent or the non-believer
to say "You're wrong" and to on
their way. Then, there are those
millions whose lives have been
changed by believing, by being
among those who have seen
beyond the "reality" of what


seemed to be in the past, and
who live among those who the
Lord included when He said
"Blessed are those who have not
seen and yet have come to
believe." Their reality has
changed the world and they're
affirmed in it. They keep working
to see things .improved and are
optimistic, hopeful, joyous. They
know how the story ends; they
got it right after all and the words
spoken are music to their ears.
They have come to believe, even
if they didn't see-and it's for real.

It's Friday, but Sunday's coming


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
How could so much have
happened in such a short time?
What did it all mean? It was only
mid-afternoon, but it had
seemed like a week had passed
since last evening. There were
wars and rumors of wars. Every-
one was running scared of what
might happen next. Some
believed the world was going to
hell in a hand basket. Others did
not know what to believe. Many
just could not believe it had hap-
pened. It just could not be true.
But it did happen, and it was
true. Jesus was crucified -
dead. They didn't know what
was going to happen next. Hope
was shattered. Despair reigned.
Nerves were on edge. Fear was
in the air. It was a dark Friday.
Centuries later, we have the
advantage. We know that Jesus
was crucified, dead and buried.
We also know that on the third
day He arose again from the
dead. Our Lord overcame the


grave. This gives us a hope.
Though it might be Friday in our
life right now, we have the assur-
ance that Sunday is coming with
its' resurrec-
tion promises.
We all
experience .
dark Fridays.
There are
those days
when we feel
like the whole
world is com-
ing down John
upon us. There Hicks
are those
times when things just don't go
well and sometimes those times
seem like they have been going
on forever. And then there are
those "grain of sand down the
pants" type frustrations. You
know the type: small, irritating
and often times, chaffing. It is
during all of these dark Friday
times that we need to remember
the promise of Sunday.
The promise of Sunday
means that we don't have to let
the dark Fridays of life keep us


down. No matter how bad a sit-
uation might be; the end of it
will come. We know that even
though things might be really
dark now, there is a light at the
end of the tunnel. Sunday is
coming. We know that Jesus is
alive and because He lives, we
can live and live abundantly.
That's the word that the world
is waiting to hear. That's what we
need to go out and tell the world.
When they get depressed, we
need to tell them that Sunday's
coming. When they are hurting,
when they feel that they can
never know love again we
need to tell them that Sunday's
coming. When they have lost
their belief in the miraculous so
that they no longer expect great
things from God, we must tell
them that Sunday's coming.
Even though it's Friday right
now, with all of the despair, hard-
ships, and uncertainties that come
with it, Christ is going to rise again.
There is no power on earth, above
the earth, or below the earth that
can keep Him down.
Martin Luther once spent


three days in a black depression
over something that had gone
wrong. On the third day his wife
came downstairs dressed in
mourning clothes. "Who's
dead?" he asked her. "God," she
replied. Luther rebuked her, say-
ing, "What do you mean, God is
dead? God cannot die." "Well,"
she replied, "the way you've
been acting I was sure He had!"
Let us not get caught in that
trap. We serve a risen Savior -
He's in the world today. Because
He lives, we can live, too. Easter
lets us know that no situation is
beyond God's redeeming power.
Another Easter has come and
gone, but the Easter message
and promise lives oh. Sunday is
coming. Let us name, claim, and
proclaim the resurrection life!

Identification kits to soon reach more kids


HENDRY COUNTY The
National Child Identification Pro-
gram was created in 1997 by the
American Football Coaches Asso-
ciation as a community service
initiative to help protect America's
youth and change the statistics
related to missing children. More
than 800,000 children are missing
each year. Yet when the program
began, less than two percent of
parents had a copy of their child's
fingerprints to provide law
enforcement agencies in case of


an emergency.
The National Child Identifica-
tion Program's I.D. kits provides
parents and guardians with a
clean, convenient way to record
their child's fingerprints, a DNA
sample, and physical character-
istics on a card they can keep at
home.
The State of Florida Sheriff's
and Superintendent's Associa-
tions have partnered with the
American Football Coaches Asso-
ciation to make available I.D. kits


to the families of school age chil-
dren in Florida. Hendry County
Sheriff Ronnie Lee, Superinten-
dent of Schools Tom Conner, CHS
Coach Larry Antonacci and LHS
Coach Ron Dunbar are partners
with FSU Bobby Bowden, UF
Coach Urban Meyer, and UM
Coach Larry Coker in commit-
ment to the national Child Identifi-
cation Program.
The I.D. kits will be distributed
to students by their schools on Fri-
day, April 20.
