Vivian Hazel



Crooks, friend



1945-2007


She believed
in us

By Nena Bolan
GLADES COUNTY -
Vivian Crooks was a dairy
farm gal, teacher, mentor and
everybody's auntie. The
impact she made on our lives
will influence us for the rest of
our lifetime. Her bold charac-
ter, dependability and
.assertive demeanor pushed us
to accomplishthings that we
would have given up on had
she not given us a sviflI kick.
"If it wasn't for Vivian I
wouldn't have gone to school
and finished my education,"
said Megan Otero, a former


student.
That sentiment has been
echoed by many Seminoles
who live in the Big Cypress
Reservation.
Miss Viv was their neighbor
and went to work for the tribe
as a teacher/counselor in the
1970's. She introduced the phi-
losophy that'education is good
for you no matter how old you
are, or where you come from. It
did not matter if you were quick
to learn, or a bit rusty. When
Miss Viv got hold of you she
wouldn't let go until you fin-
ished your homework, or
passed your GED.

To 'Walk The



Line'... of the



local bridge


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades
County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY John-
ny Cash was famous for his "I
Walk The Line." Well, one of
us may not be as famous
"walking" as he did, but she's
as dedicated as he was when it
comes to walking.
SCathy Peeples, Glades
County School- Board Mem-
ber/Third District, walks "The
bridge" every morning for sev-
eral reasons


After dropping off little son,
Donald, at school, she heads
for the bridge just to walk -
to "talk" to the morning, to see
the foggy-mist rise in soft
swirls from the Big River, to
see the far horizon of Florida
and hear the wakening-day
sounds of people going to
work.
The bridge spans two roads
and the Big River at the south-
east end of Moore Haven. It is

SPALMDALE Some people
love wild animals so much that
they try to make pets out of them.
It usually ends up badly for the
animal because the owner truly
is not equipped or prepared to
rear awild creature.
People actually have been
known to try to raise big cats and
primates in apartments or con-
dos. Sometimes law enforce-
ment finds abandoned wild pets
after the occupant moves out and
leaves them behind. Other times
owners are forced to give them
up.
Lois Veverka has seen this
happen to wild creature many,
many times. She is the property
manager at Vanishing Species,
and she wears many hats while
doing her job duties. She feeds
animals, gives tours and cleans
out cages.
"I do all the glamorous work
in the background," she said jok-
ingly.
While giving a tour Ms. Vever-
ka told small histories about cer-
tain animals and how they came
to live in Palmdale. Most of them
had been pets. or were kept in


This young female Florida panther is a native big cat. She
is thriving at Vanishing Species in Palmdale which is in
Glades County.


small zoos.
One of them is a female tim-
ber wolf that lives at the center,
but she has been removed from
public viewing until she gives
birth. The wolf was an abused
animal that was taken away from
its owner: He wanted to conceal
the fact that she was a wolf and
had her ears cropped in.hopes it
would make her look like a dog.
A European wildcat, with
beautiful red fur, u\as purchased


through the Internet, because
someone wanted it for an exotic
house pet. It was too vicious to
make a safe pet and it ended up
at the center.
Oscar, the coatimundi, was
found in a suitcase by customs
officials at the Miami Airport. This
raccoon-like animal now lives at
the Palindale center. i

Community enjoys new ball fields


Schools, city and
county pitch in

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The local
ball fields behind the schools in
Moore Haven are a gathering
place in the afternoons and early
evenings. It isn't a surprise, then,
that officials in town decided to
help shape up the facilities.
Just recently $400,000 was
spent to renovate the fields -
the result of a cooperative proj-
ect of school, city and county
departments.
School district administrative
services director, Scott Bass,
helped organize the renovation.
He has been with the Glades
County School District since
1994, and to date this is one of
the projects that has impressed
him the most.
"So many people in this com-
munity have been positively
affected by this one project," the


director said.
"It really helped when the
county designated sales tax
money toward the ball field ren-
ovation. The city and school dis-
trict pitched in, too. Everyone's
cooperation and traditional
work ethic contributed to its suc-
cess," he said.
Mr. Bass said the project was
a community project. Mainte-
nance workers, parents, alumni,
volunteers, and officials worked
relentlessly to get it done. As of
April 16, the ball fields were 95
percent complete.
It wasn't an easy task getting
there, either. The project is esti-
mated by the director to have
cost about $400,000 when all is
said and done.
Close to twenty vendors and
contractors reduced material
prices to help the local effort.
They donated materials, and dis-
counted labor prices. With this
generosity nineteen goals were
accomplished.
Some of the finished items
adding an extra layer of gloss to


the facilities include lighting fix-
tures, surface repair and sod,
fencing, irrigation, dug outs and
batting cage construction, foul
poles, improvements to conces-
sion stand and restroom,
bleachers with covers, and
blacktop between fields.
Sometime soon picnic tables
and a flag pole will be installed.
The volunteers have a planting
day for young oak trees in May.
The six fields are already
being put to good use.
According to Mr. Bass, there
are three T-ball teams, three
mechanical pitch teams, two
girls softball teams, three Little
League teams, and a senior boys
baseball team. In a few weeks
adult co-ed softball will begin.
Eight teams in the men's softball
league completed their season
earlier.
"As you can see it would not
have been possible without the
collaborative efforts of the board
of county commissioners, the

Many improvements to the newly renovated ball fields add to
the enjoyment of participants and spectators. The ball fields are
located in back of the school district administration building.

Many big cats, primates and reptiles were purchased to become house pets. They are
dangerous when their mature instincts take over. This spotted leopard has a home in
Palmdale which has a rescue and shelter center created by Jeff Harrod.

Letters to the Editor


Earthjustice
questions zoning
Earthjustice was scheduled for
their hearing against Glades
County's alleged zoning impro-
priety on April 17.
The clerk has filed Judge
Lundy's recusal from the hearing,
the Tuesday, 4/17 hearing has
been cancelled, but nobody can
tell us when it will be resched-
uled.
Why did Judge Lundy need to
recuse himself? It seems his


daughter just took a position with
Florida Power & Light. So what is
the problem? Glades County
maintains that its land use amend-
ment (allowing power plants to
be consistent use within the desig-
nation of open use agriculture)
had nothing to do with the FP&L
proposed Glades Power Park.
Many of the proponents of the
Glades Power Park were sched-
uled to attend the PSC hearing on
Monday. This list includes many
of the Glades County Economic
Development Council and two of
the County Commissioners. I do


not know if any of these attendees
spent county funds to go to Talla-
hassee, or if they did it "on the
clock", but I do know that the
EDC is partially funded by the
county, $16,000 per year perhaps.
As to their testimony before the
PSC, well, perhaps they are
coached by FP&L's public rela-
tions firm, Wragg & Casas, for a
handsome hourly fee, as they
were for the last Southwest Flori-
da Regional Planning Council. For
that meeting, the addition of
FP&L's Glades proposal to the
agenda was announced late in


the afternoon the day before.
The Public Service Commis-
sion will hear two arguments this
week: the Need for the coal-fired
power plant in Moore Haven and
the Cost to the FPL ratepayer. The
cost to the ratepayer will likely
include the bill from Wragg &
Casas. As a ratepayer, I find shoul-
dering the expense for such a
massive disinformation campaign
as this to be unconscionable.
How about you?

Wilson was made an honorary master of Moore Haven
Lodge No. 61, F&AM. This honor is not often given to a
member; however Mr. Wilson's faithful attendance and
desire was considered outstanding and above average.
Ories L. Douglas received a 55-year pin and certification
for being in the Masonic fraternity for over 55 years. He
was made a Master Mason in Guam, October 29, 1951 and
became affiliated with Moore Haven Lodge No. 61 in 1978.

Glades County Historical


Society fundraiser event


GLADES COUNTY Glades
County Historical Society's Annual
Barbeque and Rummage Sale will
be held at Perry Park in Moore
haven on Saturday, April 28, at 11
a.m. Members voted to change the
site from the historic Pieter Weste-
gaard House due to lack of parking
space and seating space last year.
Members home cook the coun-
ty's favorite traditional meal con-
sisting of massive amounts of
country ribs, chicken, potato salad,
slaw and beans topped off with
home-baked desserts. And of
course, no meal in the south is
complete without sweet tea. All
this can be had for $8 per person.
While you are waiting, you can
shop at their rummage sale or just
relax and watch the river flow by.
Funds from the event go
towards the restoration of the early
1900s bungalow-styled house con-


structed by Glades County's first
pharmacist, Pieter Westegaard.
The group plans to use the house
for their office arid a small muse-
um. The hdbse will also be avail-
able for local organizations and cit-
izens for meetings and other
events.
.Progress through the past six
years has been slow due to a lack
of funding, storm damage and
local contractors. Past funding has
been provided by the Florida
Department of State and Depart-
ment of Historic Preservation. A
Florida Power and Light represen-
tative will also be on hand with a
special surprise for the members.
Memberships are available and
t-shirts designed with our famous
Cypress Tree will be on sale for $5
and $10, sizes small through XX-
large. Please join us for this fun
event.

MOORE HAVEN Hey, don't
throw those coffee grounds in the
trash! Keenagers not only learned
how to arrange flowers, they
learned a lot of useful tips from
Sandra Kavouras, who was in
charge of the program. Take those
coffee grounds, and put them
where ants are coming into your
house-presto-the ants go
away. Another of the many tips
she gave us, was how to make our
rose arrangements last longer.
Following a covered dish
luncheon, Mrs. Kavouras, assisted
by Darlene Tompkins and Bar-
bara Moore, all of Ft. Myers,
showed those present how to use
greenery from our yards and pur-
chased flowers to make beautiful
arrangements. Of special interest
to most of us was how she
trimmed a plain old cabbage
palm branch to make a beautiful
background for flowers!
Sandra is very qualified to teach
floral arranging as she is President
of Gardens of the World (a virtual
garden club), member of National
Garden Club, Deep South Garden
Club, Florida Federation of Garden
Clubs, and Poinciana Garden Club.
She is membership chairman of
FFGC District IX, and is qualified to
judge flower shows throughout

the world. Darlene and Barbara
are also active members of these
clubs, and both Sandra and Dar-
lene are members of Creative Flo-
ral Arrangers of the Americas and
have won awards all over Florida
for their creations. Our own Bobbi


Brown, who hates to pull weeds, is
a member of the Deep South,
FFGC and Gardens of the World
Garden Club. However, she only
listens and takes notes in the pres-
ence of these three professionals.

which instructed us how to begin
our "Creative Flower Arranging",
containers to put them in if we
didn't bring one, and Darlene and
Barbara helped us decide what
flowers and greenery to use for
the design we chose to create.
They also donated the arrange-
ments they made for members to
take home with them.
The local flower shops would
be envious of the finished products,
as Sandra critiqued each arrange-
ment. An enthusiastic outburst of
applause greeted Larry Hilsinger's
arrangement which received her
appreciative comments. Each
Keenager took their arrangement
home, and we agreed that we were
very fortunate to have had these
ladies donate their time and talents
to show us how to make our
homes more beautiful.
The Keenagers presented San-
dra and Darlene with whimsical
gifts of appreciation, and gave
Darlene (wife of Giles Tompkins,
a former Moore Haven resident) a
special "thank you" for donating
the flowers that we all used.
Drawings were held for
exchange of plants that members
brought, and "Let's do this again"
was heard as they left with their
treasures.

Book Fair

Week

under way
West Glades sponsors
book building event
By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades
County Democrat
This is a week-long special
event at West Glades School. It's
Book Fair Week that began Mon-
day, April 23 and continues
through Friday April 27.
The opening kick-off event for
the spring Book Fair Week was the
Build-a-Book project Monday
night. This was the special event of
the annual Family Reading Night
which is for both students and par-
ents. This event actually showed
students how a book is built. It
started and ended on the same
night, 6 to 7:30 p.m., thus the com-
pleted project resulted in a book
that students actually took home
with them.
Everything is furnished. A
scholastic company manufactures
all the elements, making them avail-
able (for 150 students) to the school
at a cost of $6 each, paid for from
the Parents Involvement Fund.
For instance, the covers are sup-
plied which has a spiral spine as
well as various illustrative words
and expressions which can be
used in the book.
This is a highly creative exercise
using various pictures and words
for both students and parents.
Book Fair Week is an annual
week-long event that adds substan-
tially to the funds of the school to
purchase books and supplies for
the library. Book Fair Week is held
twice yearly, in the spring and fall.
A different special event is sched-
uled during each Book Fair Week.
Curriculum Specialist Debby
Davis says the Build-a-Book project
is one of the most popular extra cur-
ricular events during West Glades
School Family Reading night.


Learning about the United States g .


Submitted photos
Moore Haven Elementary School's third grade completed a study of the 50 states of Amer-
ica. Each student was assigned a state to research. They were asked to find all of the basic
facts of the state and some extra fascinating trivia. The students were also encouraged to
design a costume that would represent their state. Costume designs ranged from leading
industries to famous people. On Friday April 13, the students each gave a presentation in
front of parents and other special guests. There were over 50 guests in attendance.

Eco-Tourism site: The Belle Glade Mounds


By Nancy Dale
pl ,l i,li to INI
How to tell time by a shadow
stick, demonstrated by Kye
E\ iii., data base manager at the
Archibald Research Center in
Lake Placid, was one of the
many lessons learned along the
hike by "Save Our Creek Board"
members and a dozen visitors
on the way to Ft. Center, the
ancient Belle Glade Indian
Mounds near Lakeport and
future eco-tourism site.
To commemorate the memo-
ry of these ancient peoples who
built a sophisticated village
along the ox-bow of Fisheating
Creek, the group hiked three
miles along Banana Grove Road
to the site in the State Manage-
ment Area that will soon be a
developed as an eco-tourism
attraction with observation
tower, information kiosks along
the trail, and picnic area to enjoy
the silent serenity in miles of
magnificent open prairie.
The Belle Glade site was
excavated by Dr. Sears, Florida
Atlantic University archeologist,
hired by Lykes Brothers when
they owned the property, to
recover and protect the many
artifacts buried within the vari-
ous middens. Save the Creek
group hiked deep within the
scrub and palmettos to find the
"charnel ponds" or funeral
grounds where the Indians
burned their human remains
and deposited them in the
ponds. As part an eco-tourism
development in Glades County,
"Save Our Creek" is anticipating
the receipt of $320,000 in grant
monies from the State to reno-
vate the Cypress Knee Museum
just south of Fisheating Creek
Campground to tie into a hiking
trail to Ft. Center. Member Deen
Mountain, experienced trail
guide, will be working with the
Fish and Wildlife Commission
management to designate vari-
ous hiking/biking trails through-
out Fisheating Creek Wildlife
Management Area into Ft. Cen-
ter.
Ironically, not far from the
ancient Indian Mounds is a sign
marking old fort civil war days Ft.
Center, one of the many Union
army outposts throughout the
state where troops were
deployed as "bounty hunters" to
round-up and remove Seminole
Indians from Florida. Fortunate-
ly, however, the resilient and
clever Seminoles survived, and

today provide a major contribu-
tion to Florida's economy and
cultural heritage.
Conducting business at picnic
tables beneath the expansive
shade of an arching oak at the
Indian Mound site, other busi-
ness was discussed. Ellen Peter-
son brought up the accessibility
of Fisheating Creek Campground
for local festivals in the park that
other State Parks provide. Harris
Friedman, Secretary of "Save
Our Creeks" indicated he would
look into the feasibility. The
Board further re-stated the rec-
ommendation to the State Man-
agement Board that Fisheating
Creek be open all along its 72
miles for canoeing/kayaking as
designated by the State Agree-
ment in 1999 when Lykes sold
the land to the State.
Peterson stated that this will
expand the eco-tourism econo-
my and development in Glades
County to other established
attractions such as Gatorama,
Vanishing Species, and Fisheat-
ing Creek that lures thousands of
nature-loving tourists from
urban areas to refresh and
regenerate in the last pristine
wilderness area around Lake
Okeechobee.
The trail to Ft. Center is open
to the public, although Wildlife
Biologist, Grant Steelman said
signs have not yet been posted
and the gate remains locked
until the parking lot it completed


(the group had to climb over the
fence to access the trail). The
"Save Our Creek" hikers pro-
ceeded, but Harris Friedman,
Secretary, said he had tried to
secure a professional archaeolo-
gist to provide a guided tour of
the site but none was available
on the designated date.
In 1999, when the Glades
County Economic Development
Council was founded by citizens
of Glades County with the assis-
tance of graduate students and
professors in the School of Busi-
ness at Florida Gulf Coast Uni-
versity, eco-tourism was slated
as the number one preference to
expand job opportunities and
the economy with further
emphasis expressed in 2006
(with recommendations and
economic assistance of the State
"Main Street" organization) and
"Visioning" meetings to revital-
ize the 1900s historic buildings
on Main Street Moore Haven to
develop a riverwalk, another
eco-tourism and economic
attraction for the estimated
18,000 pleasure boats that ply
the Caloosahatchee River yearly
crossing from the Atlantic Ocean
to the Gulf of Mexico.
In other business, the Amber
Bratz, Treasurer, reported that
there are 88 members of "Save
Our Creek" and that member-
ship was still $10, individual, $15
family and $75 for life member-
ship.


Visitor Rhonda Roff, Presi-
dent of the "Save It Now Glades
County" (SING) group reported
that as part of grass roots efforts
regarding costs to the citizens
and concerns to the environ-
ment from the coal powered
plant proposed near Ft. Center,
and number of members were
going to testify during the
upcoming Public Service Com-
mission hearings in Tallahassee.
The Governor and Cabinet will
make the final decision regard-
ing the approval/disapproval for
the coal plant project. Ft. Center
is located a few miles north of
the proposed FPL coal powered,
energy plant. (Save Our Creek
member, Bob Hummel said he
attended a recent task force
meeting in Sebring with other
Washington Environmental Pro-
tection Agency (EPA), Depart-
ment of Interior, Governor's
Office officials, where concern
was expressed about the effects
on the environment of the pro-
posed coal burning power
plant).
After a picnic lunch and relax-
ing in the cool breeze, the group
hiked around some of the curv-
ing mounds rising within the
native overgrowth .-: rI-lhrng to
follow the diagrams laid out of
the site by Dr. Sears in his book
Ft. Center.

The renovation of the ball fields is complete in Moore Haven.
Employees, parents, volunteers and officials can be proud of
the results. Moore Haven is located in Glades County on the
southwest side of Lake Okeechobee.

Scott Bass said.

Two lions had been used on the

After filming they were no longer
necessary to the production com-
pany and the wildlife center came
to their rescue.
These homeless animals can
find a place to live out their lives at
Vanishing Species Wildlife Exhibi-
tion Center in Palmdale. Jeff Harrod
is the owner and operator of the
rescue and shelter facility. He has
been rescuing wild animals since
he was eight years old and he made
it a lifetime commitment. Just
recently two bear cubs were aban-
doned by their mother and he now
cares for them at Vanishing Species.
Many big cats have found
refuge at the center. Mr. Harrod has

much school, she knocked on his
front door and reminded him he
had an education to pursue. If a
student was heartbroken or in
despair, Vivian would take her to
lunch and they would iron things
out. If a teenager had just one
more chance to take a college
entrance exam, Vivian would
round her up and give her a ride
to the testing center.
"No matter what she asked of
us, it was do-able," remembered
Mary Jene Koenes.
Ms. Koenes was a young moth-
er when Vivian Crooks went to
work for the Seminoles in Big
Cypress. She saw right away that
this boisterous blonde lady was a
bulldog when it came to promot-
ing education and caring for the
physical and mental health of her
Indian neighbors; but first, Vivian
Crooks would have to understand


and enjoy the afternoon and
evening with family and friends.
Residents are encouraged to
visit and go to the ball games and
get a bite to eat at the concession
stand. The funds generated by the
concession stand go to the Youth
Athletic Association.

built cages to keep them safe and
to keep people safe too. Tigers,
lions, leopards, Florida panthers
and smaller wildcats are the main
attraction for visitors.
The wildlife center also has rep-
tiles, small mammals and farm ani-
mals. Sometimes Mr. Harrod takes
these to festivals and other events.
School children and tourists are
allowed to get close to the animal
and pet the gentle ones. Mr. Harrod
and his helpers teach about how the
animal was rescued, and why some
animals do not make good pets.
Occasionally a young big cat or
young bear is taken to the events,
but the really wild and big animals
are permanently on display in
Palmdale. These displaced animals
cannot be returned to the wild, nor
will they ever make safe pets. Mr.
Harrod intends that they should
live out the rest of their lives at Van-


Seminole culture, etiquette,
lifestyle and humor. She was frus-
trated at the beginning.
"She came here and thought
she was going to conquer the
world. It ws, fascinating to watch
her adjust. Vivian turned out to be
a great lady. She became our
mother, grandmother and auntie;
especially to the young women
she took a shine to. Vivian gave
one hundred percent of herself to
us," said Ms. Koenes fondly.
Miss Viv was also a mentor to
educators and counselors who
were recently hired and new to
the tribe's culture. She trained
employees with the same stick-
with-it policy that she used on her
Seminole family. Miss Viv believed
in her fellow workers, too.
Maureen Vass began working
for the tribe in Hollywood where
she met Vivian about 1979. She
recalled that Vivian was a doer
and not one to sit back, or take
"no" easily.
"Vivian was always forthright,

reported to be the longest span

Memorial Bridge runs east to

ing from which end you
approach.
"It's almost like flying low,"
Cathy, a Glades County school
board member serving her third
term, said.
And then there's that infec-
tious laugh, "But it's a little more
stable."
"The air from that height
seems cleaner, more invigorat-
ing, and the views in every direc-
tion are ever the same, yet ever
changing from one morning to
the next," said Ms. Peeples. "I
find myself looking forward to
this time of morning as I think:
'My little son is safely in school.
He's happy and he's learning. I'll
go back and pick him up later
but right now, while I can't hold
the world in my hands, I can feel
its energy, its beauty, and even
some of its challenges.' But the


fishing Species. Usually there is no
other place for them.
Jeff Harrod is also the fire chief
for Palmdale Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment. When he isn't putting out
fires during this time of drought, he
is tending to the big cats and he
must do it carefully. They may have
been in captivity when they were
born, but as they mature their wild
instincts take over and handling
them becomes a risk. No one
should try what Mr. Harrod does
unless they have a lifetime of seri-
ous experience.
Caring for all the animals is a
huge, expensive task. Vanishing
Species in Palmdale survives on
donations alone. A small fee is
asked for a tour, and donations are
greatly appreciated. Building a
strong, safe cage for a big cat can
cost $1,000-$1,800. Grocery stores
donate large amounts of food, but


up front, honest and did not pull
punches. She helped me, advised
me, and because of Vivian I got a
promotion and I will never forget
that about her" said Ms. Vass.
James Billie, former Seminole
president, spoke about Vivian
Crooks with joy in his voice. He
described her with the classic defi-
nition of the word enthusiasm,
which means inspired by God. He
mentioned she had an intense
interest in the people around her
and a zest for life.
"She kept the place alive.
Vivian was a tremendous asset to
the Seminole people," Mr. Billie
said.
You couldn't stop her from
wanting to celebrate all passages
of a person's life. At a minute's
notice she was preparing for baby
showers, wrapping birthday gifts,
ordering graduation gowns or
picking up a cake in town.
Even when grief or poor health
came into Vivian's life she still held
on and struggled to get through it


truth is, sometimes I feel I could
live happily without some of
those challenges!"
Cathy, widow of the late Don-
nie Peeples, is a graduate of the
University of Central Florida,
where she earned a degree in
special education.
"Speaking of challenges," she
adds, "weight is always a chal-
lenge. And I think this is the only
activity I've entered into having
to do with losing weight that I've
actually enjoyed, and I do con-
sistently lose pounds walking
the bridge. Every morning I look
forward to climbing the bridge-
hill, then almost running down
the hill on the other side."
She isn't always alone,
though.
"Sometimes it's a solo activity
for me, at other times however,
there'll be one or more who join
in and we all walk and laugh and
talk together," said Ms. Peeples.
"If there are problems looming
on the horizon they seem to take
a back seat. We all know they'll
be waiting for us at another time,
another place."
Bridge-walking: Who knows,
it might become a national
habit.


Mr. Harrod is always looking for
more sources of support.
Volunteers are needed for land-
scaping, clean up, and handy man
duties. There are many small ani-
mals that require care, too.
Sunday, May 13, will mark the
third anniversary for Vanishing
Species in Palmdale, and Jeff Har-
rod invites everyone to attend and
enjoy food, beverages and photo-
graphing the critters.
"Come out and see the animals
for yourself. It is educational. You
can find out what is going on with
wildlife," said Mr. Harrod.
The exhibit is located at 8850
North U.S. 27 in Palmdale, just
north of the old Oasis building. Call
(863) 674-1400 for more informa-
tion or go to www.vanish-

others to do the same, to help one
another and to get the job done.
"She's probably up there help-
ing God direct things," said Pastor
John Hicks during her memorial
service.
Vivian Crooks was a Florida
girl, lifelong teacher, protective
mom and devoted wife. She was
also a survivor like the wily Crack-
er cattle, and the unconquered
Seminole.

Why school shootings mw.- i;

like Virginia Tech?
". C PTATF : OF FRiLn A O ID IDA EPARTI:IuT ,t= u n "4j


There is no question that what a
person reads has a profound effect
on him. Many have come to the
Lord through the reading of the
Scripture. Many others have been
led into skepticism and doubt by
reading some atheist's or agnostic's
material.
What made America great in
time past was the faith it had in God.
The faith in part was communicat-
ed to the young in public school. It
was the desire of the founders of
America that our education be Bible
based. Noah Webster called the
"Schoolmaster to America" saw his
duty in teaching to rescue "poor
creatures from the slavery of sin and
Satan by setting the word of God for
a lantern to our feet and a light to
our paths."
One of the school textbooks in
the past was McGuffey's Reader.
Notice the spiritual emphasis found
in this selected passage from
McGuffey's Third Eclectic Reader:
Things to remember:
When you rise in the morning
remember who kept you from dan-
ger during the night. Remember
who watched over you while you
slept, and whose sun shines
around you and gives you the
sweet light of day.
Let God have the thanks of
your heart for His kindness and His
care; and pray for His protection
during the wakeful hours of day.


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Years ago, just before coming to
Clewiston in 1976, I had an old
radio given to me that received
police calls. It didn't work, but by
"juggling" parts and making some
tube substitutions, I "resurrected"
it.
It was on my
bench for a test
run and I was
only half-listen-
ing to it. There
came a call
about a stab-
bing at an
address that
rung a bell. I SamuelS.
knew that I.had
known that h as
address and stopped to think about
the general neighborhood, the
area, trying to locate things I knew
and refresh my memory. Suddenly
it came to me; that was the address
of my high school where I had
attended for fouryears, where I had
graduated, played basketball,
belonged to a service club, made
friends, won a scholarship to col-
lege, where nearly 20 years before
nobody would have thought about
stabbing anyone.
What had happened? What
caused this violence in a place
where nobody thought about stab-
bing anyone when I walked the
halls there with a sense of security
and safety? Obviously, we have
come to be a much more violent
society. What I have observed
when there is violence is that one of
the parties perceives an injury, a
slight, an insult, an attack and feels
a need to retaliate. In fact, many of
the tragedies I hear about in
schools, colleges, any place where
people gather has to do with the
aggressor somehow feeling that
(s)he is persecuted, being attacked,
forced to defend something.
More often than not, that may
not be true at all; or if it is true, the
reaction grossly outweighs the per-
ceived affront. I see in much vio-
lence a loss of perspective; the
reaction being far more drastic
than the initial reaction that triggers
it. I remember hearing about a
domestic dispute; where the hus-
band assaulted not only his wife,


Remember that God made all
creatures to be happy, and will do
nothing that may prevent their
being so, without good reason for it.
At night, before you go to
sleep, think whether you have
done anything that was wrong dur-
ing the day, and pray to God to for-
give you. If any one has done you
wrong, forgive him in your heart.
Trust in the Lord, and He will
guide you in the way of good men.
The path of the just is as a shining
light that shineth more and more
unto the perfect day.
We must do all the good we
can to all men, for this is well pleas-
ing in the sight of God. He delights
to see His children walk in love, and
do good one to another.
If our land would return to such
education it would do more good
than all the new facilities or a raise
in teacher's pay. Only God can
bless a nation! Isn't it ironic that a
liberal court took an insignificant
statement from a letter written by
Thomas Jefferson to a Minister to
make a separation between Chris-
tianity and the state, when Presi-
dent Jefferson said that every
teacher's desk in America should
have a copy of the Bible and an
Isaac's Watts hymnal. In our past
history, with the Bible as our guide,
rash school shootings and other
social problems never happened.


but his mother-in-law.
I couldn't help but wonder that,
even if the mother-in-law was
involved, wasn't it really a matter to
be resolved between a couple and
not to involve third parties? People
will say things and suddenly there is
a reaction that may, or may not, be
justified. I think we traded our
insults and jibes when I was in high
school, but you usually got back
what you gave. Nobody felt a need
to retaliate as drastically and with as
much violence as seems to be hap-
pening today. The result was that
things didn't escalate, and seemed
to come to quicker resolutions.
There seemed to be less involve-
ment needed on the parts of those
charged with keeping order; an
unwritten rule that characterized
earlier times was to "keep things in
perspective." The recent violence in
our educational institutions, and
there has been much violence,
might be symptomatic of a world
where people (1) perceive them-
selves as being victimized in some
way, when they may not really be or
it may not be as severe as felt, and
(2) there seems to be a felt need to
retaliate with all the intensity that
can be mustered. When we change
our values, work to avoid a "chip-
on-the-shoulder" mentality, work to
teach people to keep things in per-
spective, maybe we will be able to
return to a more peaceful life and
have fewer tragedies in our schools
and across the nation. Paul writes in
Romans (12:9ff "...be devoted to
one another, honor one another
above yourselves, be joyful in hope,
patient in affliction, fervent in
prayer..." and then comes a real
challenge: "Bless those who perse-
cute you, bless and do not curse."
Regarding vengeance, he admon-
ishes "Do not take revenge my
friends, but leave room for God's
wrath, for it is written 'It is mine to
avenge, Iwillrepay' (Romans 12:19)."
It is tragic enough when the
things that upset people are real;
infinitely more tragic when they are
exaggerated, only perceived or
could have been resolved but
weren't settled before they became
a full-blown disaster. When
angered, we need to stop and think
"Is it worth it?" and if we all do,
maybe one day we can return to a
quieter, more peaceful world as
God intends.

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Located in Virginia, nestled in
the quaint town of Blacksburg,
are eight colleges and graduate
schools, a program of 60 bache-
lor's degrees, 140 masters and
doctoral programs, 25,000 full-
time students, 100 buildings on
2,600 acres. Virginia Tech a good
place for a son or daughter to start

Tragically,
that view was
transformed
last week by a
misguided
twisted mind.
Thirty-three
lives were cut
tragically John
short. Those Hicks
families who
thought their children's futures
were all before them must now
deal with a truth that no parent
ought to face. There will be no
future, no summers back home,
no tough years making the grade,
no graduation, no falling in love,
no weddings, no grandchildren.
Try as I might, I have yet to
make sense of it. It was needless.
It was senseless. As I think about
this tragedy, I wonder what the
world has been robbed of? What
great people and accomplish-
ments were suddenly erased
from the pages of history? Maybe
an agricultural student who
would develop some new strand
of wheat and potatoes that
would yield more production per
acre. Gone! Perhaps, a mechani-
cal engineer who would design
the first aerial mapping camera
to be used in an airplane map-
ping the surface of the earth.
Gone! Perchance a person who
would take a sewing needle and
adapt it to a two pronged needle
so that a small trace of vaccine
would be trapped between the
two prongs allowing the small-
pox vaccine to be easily adminis-
tered, eradicating the virus from
history. Gone as well.
Actually, these accomplish-


ments, achieved by alumni of Vir-
ginia Tech, have already taken
place. But what if they had been
cut short? Thinking about that, I
wonder what potential influences
and discoveries have been erased
by what happened. We drop our
rock in the pond of this world and
the ripples move out through his-
tory. When a tragedy like this hap-
pens, it's like the pebble has been
snatched out of the water and the
ripples die out the influence is
gone. And that's not even taking
into account the personal toll on
those who knew the victims.
So, what do we do? Let me
answer that in Latin: Ut Prosim. It
means, "That I May Serve." It is
the motto of Virginia Tech.
Professor Liviu Librescu, who
was a survivor of he Holocaust,
was a living example of that
motto. He stood in the doorway
and did not let the shooter in. He
told his students to jump out the
second story window while he
held the gunman back. His stu-
dents made it out alive. He did
not. It is ironic that 60 years later a
survivor of the Holocaust died
protecting U.S. citizens from the
tyranny of a mad man.
"That I may serve." God is
found in us when we intentionally
serve God and serve our neigh-
bor, especially those who have
fallen. We should mourn, yes, but
we should also turn to God, and
then reach out to one another.
We should rebuild our own lives
putting God once again at the
center. Life is fragile. At any
moment walls can collapse upon
us, death is standing at the door.
When these things happen,
God is right here with us. Distress
and agony are no strangers to
God. Jesus suffered. Jesus died a
painful death.
But Jesus was also raised.
Therefore, I have hope even
when the floodwaters of life
engulf me. I have hope even
when crazy people do evil and
crazy things. I have hope even in
the valley of the shadow of death.
I have hope because love is
poured out on me by God and by
my neighbors.

Dredging has changed local area


Editor's note: Thanks to the
Clewiston Museum, we have
new information about the really
early days of Lake Okeechobee
with a document written by Con-
rad Menge in 1947. Mr. Menge
would have been 82 years old
when he wrote this. History
buffs, here you are. This docu-
ment was titled "Early dredging
in the Lake Okeechobee region",
by Conrad Menge, dated Septem-
ber28, 1947.

By MaryAnn Morris
"In about 1880 the Hamilton
Disston Company (also known
as the Atlantic, Gulf Coast and
Okeechobee Land Company)
purchased four million acres of
land located throughout the
southern part of the State of
Florida. The purchase price was
approximately one million dol-
lars. It was the plan of the Dis-
ston Company to reclaim the
marsh lands surrounding Lake
Okeechobee and some of the
lake bottom itself so that this
land could be used for general
farming. In order to reclaim the
land, it was necessary to lower
the level of the lake by about
four feet. All of the dredging car-
ried out during the decade
between 1880 and 1890 was
undertaken with the purpose of
draining the marshes and lower-
ing the water level in Lake Okee-
chobee.
"The first dredge used on the
project was built in 1882 or 1883
by my two brothers, Joseph
Menge and J. Fred Menge. This
dredge was constructed at Cedar
Keys. (Readers may recall that
this dredge was built at Cedar
Key from a previous story. Now
we know by whom.) This
dredge was 20 feet wide, 80 feet
long, and was of the elevator
type, using 24 buckets. The mud
was dumped in a hopper and
from there into a wooden chute
into while was pumped a stream
of water to keep the mud sliding
out on the bank. This dredge
was able to cut an average of
250 lineal feet, 24 feet wide and
6 feet deep in ten hours in soft
muck. This type of dredge was
invented by my father Anton
Menge and was known as the
Menge Patented dredge.
"After the dredge was deliv-
ered to Fort Myers, J.Fred Menge
stayed to take charge of the
dredging operations for the Dis-
ston Company. He took the
dredge to Fort Thompson Falls
under its own power, using a
stern paddle wheel operated by
a chain belt from the main
engine.
"Beginning at Fort Thompson
a few spots were dredged out in
the river from there to Lake Flirt.
A channel was then cut through
Lake Flirt and following the nar-
row stream bed on to the north
end of Bonnet Lake. It was nec-
essary to cut a channel in both
of these lakes since in/some
places water was not deep
enough to float the dredge. The
main idea in this preliminary
dredging was to get the dredge
to the point where it could begin
digging a canal from Bonnet
Lake to Lake Hicpoochee.
"The first real canal was the
one that connected Bonnet Lake

This 1915 map that appeared in Mr. Small's written documentation of the Lake Okeechobee
area is dated 1915. Note the names of towns or if they exist or not at this time.

"The first real canal
was the one that con-
nected Bonnet Lake and .
Lake Hicpoochee. This
work was begun some-
time in 1884. The canal ,,
was cut in two widths,
that is, 48 feet wide."

and Lake Hicpoochee. This
work was begun sometime in
1884. The canal was cut in two
widths, that is, 48 feet wide.
"After the cut into Lake
Hicpoochee was completed, the
dredge was moved over to the
east side of the lake and the sec-
ond canal was started which
would connect Lake
Hicpoochee and Lake Okee-
chobee. This second canal
became known as Three-Mile
Canal. A lone cypress tree on the
edge of the canal near Lake
Okeechobee was named the Flat
Top Cypress and soon became
famous as a landmark. It carried
a flag on top of it as a beacon so
that anyone in that region could
easily locate the Three-Mile
Canal. This canal was complet-
ed in late 1884 or early 1885.
"After the Three-Mile Canal
was finished, the dredge was
taken back to Fort Thompson to
cut off some of the short bends
in the river. All of these first
phases of dredging were com-
pleted by the latter part of 1886.
"As it turned out, the canals
from Okeechobee to
Hicpoochee, from Hicpoochee
to Bonnet Lake, and the chan-
nels through Bonnet Lake, Lake
Flirt, and dn to the Caloosa-
hatchee Valley did not succeed
in lowering the lake level by four
feet as originally planned. In
fact, there were times during the
rainy season when the direction
of the current in the river
between /fort Thompson and
Hicpoochee was reversed, that
is, the water flowed "backward"
or toward the lake. The Disston
Company then made plans to
dig another canal from the south

shore of Lake Okeechobee,
beginning at Ritta River which
would drain into the Shark River
Valley. It was believed that this
additional canal would provide
the drainage needed to lower
the lake level.
"I arrived in Fort Myers on
December 8, 1886, the day after
my twenty-first birthday, to go to
work as engineer on the dredge
of which my brother was cap-
tain. I went to Fort Thompson
where the dredge was then
located, having just completed
the job of making some cuts to
take bends out of the river. We
took the dredge immediately to
Coffee Mill Hammock where we
stayed for about a month, mak-
ing extensive repairs of the
machinery and equipment in
preparation for digging the next
canal.


"When the repairs were com-
pleted, we took the dredge into
Lake Hicpoochee and out a
short canal from the southwest
side of the lake back to the pine
timber. This was early in 1887.
The canal, about a mile long,
was called 'Wood Yard Canal.'
Its purpose was to get to the sup-
ply of wood which was used as
fuel on the dredge. Wood was
cut in four foot lengths and
hauled to the end of the canal by
ox team. A man by the name of
Joe Horn contracted with the
Disston Company to supply
wood at three dollars a cord,
delivered to the canal. The wood
contracts were made for 100
cords at a time. When in opera-
tion, the dredge used about a
cord or a cord and a half of fat
pine wood each day."

By Gene McAvoy
Horticultural Agent Hendry
County Extension Service
Drought is likely to occur in
every part of Florida at one time
or another. Because of Florida's
sandy soils, plants may experi-
ence drought stress after only a
few days without rain or irriga-
tion.
We are currently in the midst
of one of the most severe
droughts in recent memory. The
South Florida Water Manage-
ment Districts has already
begun to institute water restric-
tions. The restrictions are
designed to be equitable, but
high priority is given to water
use for human consumption,
agriculture, and industry. Irriga-'
tion for commercial and home
landscapes is under phase
II restrictions and indications
are that restrictions could get
even tighter unless significant
rainfall is received over the next
few months. It is unlikely that
this will happen. With these lim-
itations on water, the landscap-
er or homeowner must decide
how best to use the limited
water available for landscape
irrigation.
The following recommenda-
tions are given as suggestions
for management practices dur-
ing drought.
Irrigate highly visible and
intensively managed areas first.
Drought sensitive plants should
have high priority, but turf
should have lower priority.
Although turf is drought sensi-
tive, it is cheaper to replace turf
than to replace trees and
shrubs.


Water early in the morning.
Less water loss occurs from
evaporation and wind drift in
the morning because of cooler
temperatures and less wind.
Irrigate deeply at long inter-
vals rather than frequent, shal-
low watering. Deep watering
improves drought resistance by
promoting deeper, more exten-
sive root systems. Depth of
watering should be six to twelve
inches for turf and bedding
plants, and twelve inches for
perennials, shrubs, and trees.
One inch of irrigation wets a
sandy soil to a depth of about 12
inches.
Examine the irrigation sys-
tem and repair leaks promptly.
Keep weeds under control;
weeds steal water from plants.
Don't fertilize or, if you do,
do so with a low nitrogen fertil-
izer. Fertilization stimulates
growth and increases water
needs.
Avoid unnecessary applica-
tions of pesticides that require
"watering in."
Irrigate turf only after about
30 percent of your lawn starts to
wilt. Signs of wilting include
footprints that remain in the
grass long after being made, a
bluish gray appearance to the
lawn, and a large proportion of
leaf blades that are folded in half
length-wise.
Raise the cutting height of
turf. Although taller grass uses
slightly more water than shorter
grass, a higher cutting height
promotes deeper rooting and
maintains turf quality longer.
Mow less frequently. Mowing
stresses the grass plant by
increasing respiration and


reducing root growth. In addi-
tion, never remove more than
one third the length of the blade
to prevent too much stress on
grass.
Use a sharp blade when
mowing. A sharp mower blade
produces a cleaner cut that
heals more quickly and loses
less water than a cut made by a
dull blade.
Add mulch to beds to reduce
evaporation from soil and to
moderate soil temperature,
reducing stress on roots. Final
depth of your mulch should be
3 to 4 inches after settling.
If possible, don't use over-
head sprinklers for shrub and
flower beds; hand water, flood
irrigate, or use trickle irrigation.
Greater water loss can occur
with overhead irrigation
because of evaporation .and
wind drift.
Irrigate trees and shrubs only
after they start to wilt. Drooping
leaves and a change in leaf color
are signs of wilting. Many trees
and shrubs can survive drought
without irrigation, providing
they are well established and
were irrigated prior to the
drought.
Move container plants to
shaded areas so their water
needs will be reduced.
The following recommenda-
tions should be followed when
drought is so severe and water
use is so restricted that land-
scape plant survival is in ques-
tion.
Only irrigate plants when
they start to wilt.
Apply chemical wetting
agents to soil so it will absorb
water uniformly and prevent dry


spots.
For bahia grass lawns, stop
irrigating and allow the grass to
go dormant. Bahia grass will
turn brown, but it recovers well
when irrigation resumes.
Prune plants severely to
reduce leaf area.
Remove weak plants.
Thin dense beds of plants to
reduce competition among
plants.
These precautions may help
you minimize loss or damage of
your valuable landscape plants.
