Project helps clean lake


Pilot project to
remove sediment
near Harney Pond

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY On
April 23 the Glades County
Board of Commissioners met
and considered bids from con-
tractors for removing the sedi-


ment from the Okeechobee lake
bed near Harney Pond Canal.
The pilot project is funded by
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District. The county will
oversee the removal of phos-
phorous-laden sediment.
The county is eager to move
on with the work because low
water levels in the lake have
exposed the muck, which will
make removal easier.
Officials and workers hope


to get much of it done before
the rainy season begins.
Four companies submitted
their bids on time and were
present at the meeting.
They were Rio-Bak, Wright,
AEC and Carl Perry. Each bidder
spoke publicly about his expert-
ise in the debris removal busi-
ness. The board then ranked
them according to desirability
and consequently chose Carl
Perry.


Preparing for tomorrow: Career Day at MHHS


iNi/Nena uolan
Dr. John Huysman, Moore Haven High School teacher, was among 45 presenters at
Moore Haven High School on career day, April 26. Here, Dr. Huysman leads an informal
session with students in the library about preparing for secondary school teaching career.


Students consider future jobs


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Seventh
through 12th grade students at
Moore Haven Junior/Senior
High School took part in a
career day on April 26. The
event drew 45 guest speakers
from Fort Myers, LaBelle,
Clewiston, Okeechobee,
Moore Haven and neighboring
communities.
Each presenter was set up
in a classroom and students
followed a schedule similar to
a regular school day. Students
were able to hear four or five
lectures from skilled, profes-
sional or self-employed peo-
ple. It was a chance for those
in the workforce to let teens
know about their experience
with education, training and
earning a living.
Dawn Long and Susan Hol-
land, from the Hendry and
Glades County Health Depart-
ments, told students about
associate and bachelor degree
programs for nursing. The dif-
ferences between registered
nurse (RN) and licensed prac-
tical nurse (LP'N) were dis-
cussed, as well as nursing spe-

the next session on career day. Presenters came from
Lee, Hendry, Okeechobee and Glades counties.


cialties like public health, car-
dio-vascular and pediatric.
Corporal Josh Ruffner, U. S.
Army recruiter, placed a lot of
emphasis on students com-
pleting high school, then
receiving post-secondary edu-
cation or training while serv-
ing in the armed forces.
Many teachers were also
presenters on career day. Dr.


John Huysman spoke to
potential educators about
working as secondary school
teachers. Norman Spero used
his past experience as an attor-
ney speaking to students
about choosing bachelor's
degrees before attending law
school.
See Career Page 12


Foremost in Mr. Perry's favor
was the use of laser equipment
- which the county board
hopes will prove a more effi-
cient way of carrying out the
work.
The precision of laser leveling
is widely used in local agri-busi-
ness. A tractor is fitted with a
scraper to cut the muck and it is
guided by the laser. It cuts at an
exact set level so the operator
does not have to do it visually.


"This is a more environmen-
tally sound way to do it,"
explained Carl Perry.
Mr. Perry explained that his
business is local and smaller
than the other bidders. This
allows him to be more accessi-
ble to county officials, and he
can swiftly change his opera-
tion in case the county deter-
mines that adjustments need to

Child care



center has



open house


Parents meet
teachers and
service providers

By Nena Bolan
MOORE HAVEN Glades
County Child Development Cen-
ter held an open house on
Wednesday, April 25. Parents
were invited to visit with their
child's teacher and meet repre-
sentatives from various agencies
that provide services for young
children. The event also celebrat-
ed the 40th anniversary of Child
Care of Southwest Florida, Inc.
The non-profit organization


sponsors and acquires funds for
the school.
Captain Jeffrey Hill and
Sergeant David Hardin, Glades
County Sheriff's Office, were
busy with parents' identification
kits for children. The identifica-
tion kit is kept at home by par-
ents, to be used in case of emer-
gencies.
Fingerprint inkpads were set
up on a table in class. Both offi-
cers rolled students' fingers onto
the inkpads. By the looks on the
children's faces it was obvious
they were thrilled to have the
complete attention of a law
enforcement officer.

GEO employees
volunteer to run

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Early in
the morning of April 23, there
was a Special Olympics torch
relay run through Glades
County.
The torch was carried by
runners along U.S. 27 starting
from the Hendry County line
up north to the Highlands
County line.
Called the Law Enforcement
Torch Run, the race has a 26-
year history worldwide.


This project is the largest
grass roots fundraiser and pub-
lic spotlight for the games. More
than 35 nations carried the
Flame of Hope last year.
The Florida relay covers
1,500 miles within sixty counties
and involves some 3,000 law
enforcement officers. Local
police, sheriff departments,
Florida Department of Law
Enforcement, FBI, DEA, U.S.
Customs, Air Force Police,
Marine Patrol and Florida
Department of Corrections offi-
cers carried the torch to cele-
brate the opening of the Special
Olympics.
See Run Page 12


INI/Nena Bolan
The Florida Special Olympics took place April 27-28. Twenty Moore Haven Corrections offi-
cers volunteered for the relay run through the Glades County leg of a 60 county run. Volun-
teer relay racers take turns, passing the torch as they run.

Drought continues:


Conserve water now


By Pete Gawda
INI FLORIDA
LAKE OKEECHOBEE A
swarm of Florida television
trucks converged in the parking
lot at Lock 7 on the northern
shore of Lake Okeechobee at
midday on Tuesday, May 1, for a
press conference and a glimpse
a rapidly shrinking lake.
A press conference held by
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) allowed
people on each coast see what
the people of Okeechobee have
been aware of for some time -
the lake is drastically low.
"The lake is getting lower as
we speak," said Chip Merriam,
SFWMD deputy executive direc-
tor.
Tuesday the lake was at 9.66
feet, edging ever closer to the
record low of 8.97 feet set in May
of 2001.
"This drought is serious," said
Mr. Merriam.
He spoke of the economic
impact of the drought, its effect
on water supply and the fact that
four navigation locks have been
closed.
"It is critical that South Florid-
ians follow the water restrictions
so that enough of the limited nat-
ural resource is available for
drinking water and environmen-
tal needs," said Mr. Merriam.
"This is not just a local drought
- this affects all of the state."
Mr. Merriam thanked the
media for publicizing the water
conservation regulations and
said now they had a chance to
visually see what Lake Okee-
chobee looks like.
Ben Nelson, a meteorologist
with the state department of
emergency management, said
the 2006 drought is the third
worst since 1895. He also pre-
dicted higher than normal tem-
peratures, producing an environ-
ment conducive for wildfires.
Mr. Nelson proposed a three-
fold plan. His first point was to
get ready for hurricane season.
The second point was to con-.
serve water, and the third point
was to prevent wildfires.
"Everybody needs to do their
part," he added. "Our main con-
cern is that we'll have a La Nina
develop this summer in the
equatorial Pacific. La Nina typi-
cally means drought in Florida."
A La Nina occurs when cool-

environmental needs.
This is not just a local
drought this affects
all of the state."
Chip Merriam,
SFWMD deputy
executive director

er than average waters are
recorded in equatorial Pacific
waters. This shifts the jet stream
northward, preventing storm
systems and rain from impacting
Florida in the fall, winter and
spring.
Dr. Susan Gray, SFWMD
deputy department director for
watershed development, said
the drought brought mixed
blessings. Her organization has
been replanting native vegeta-
tion and dredging muck from the
lake bottom in an effort to get it
back to its naturally sandy condi-
tion.
At the May 10 SFWMD board
of governors meeting, more
stringent water restrictions could
be put in place.
Mr. Merriam said if the area
received 3 feet of rainfall, there
would still be a drought.
He said law enforcement and
code enforcement officials have
been given ticket books and
training to enforce the drought
regulations. Concerned citizens
have been calling SFWMD to
report violations and they have
been referring them to the
appropriate law enforcement
agency.
Mr. Merriam spoke of the pos-
sibility of year-round conserva-
tion measures.
When asked about saltwater
intrusion in coastal wells, he said
there are four wells that they are
monitoring daily.

Menge brothers kept dredges working


By MaryAnn Moris
Editor's note: Thanks to the
Clewiston Museum, we have new
information about the early days
of Lake Okeechobee with a docu-
ment written by Conrad Menge in
1947. Mr. Menge was 82 years old
when he wrote this.

The Lake Okeechobee area was
drained by Hamilton Disston, who
had purchased 4 million acres of
land from the State of Florida. As a
condition of the sale, Mr. Disston
had to drain the land for farming
before he could sell it. He paid 25
cents an acre.
The first dredge was built on the
west coast at Cedar Key by two
brothers, Joseph and J. Fred
Menge. Their father, Anton Menge
had designed the dredge: the
Menge Patented Dredge. This
dredge was 20 feet wide by 80 feet
long and could cut out an average
of 250 lineal feet 24 feet wide and
six feet deep in muck in ten hours.
This work was started on the
Caloosahatchee River near Ft.
Myers. Conrad Mange, who even-
tually moved to Dearborn, Michi-
gan, wrote an account of the work
in 1947, when he was 82 years old.
After dredging up the Caloosa-
hatchee River and Lake
Hicpoochee, the brothers prepared
to begin the first canal on the south
end of the lake.
Early dredging in the Lake Okee-
chobee region
By Conrad Menge, September
28,1947.
A short canal was cut from the
southwest side of Lake
Hicpoochee to an area of Pine tim-
ber. This wood was cut and sup-
plied to the Disston Company to
fuel the massive dredge. It was
called "Wood Lot Canal."
As soon as the wood canal was
finished, we moved the dredge to
the east side of Hicpoochee and
began cutting a canal from there
toward Sand Point. (Sand Point
later became the town of Clewis-
ton.) This canal called Nine-Mile
Canal was started in about March,
1887. The only purpose of this
canal was to provide a waterway
for hauling wood down the Wood

By 1908 when this photo was taken, the Caloosahatchee River had bec6mie Three Mile
Canal, but the flat-topped Sentinel Cypress tree remained as it had for centuries.

pioneers and history

Canal to the new Location at Ritta
River where the next drainage
canal was to be dug. Otherwise to
would have been necessary to haul
all of the wood up and across
Hicpoochee and through Three-
Mile Canal, then down and across
(Lake) Okeechobee to Ritta River.
By the time we finished digging
Nine-Mile Cal, the dredge was
worn out. We took it to the south
side of Lake Hicpoochee and aban-
doned it there. Perhaps today you
could still see some of the old hull
resting on the bottom.
The Disston Company then
built a new dredge at Kissimmee. It
was similar to the Menge Dredge,
sing a hopper and chute for
depositing mud on the bank. It was
e2uipped with tumbling wheels,
however, instead of sprockets and
it had two pontoons, one bolted on
each side to make it more stable.


The new dredge was dismantled
and shipped on barges from
Kissimmee down the Kissimmee
River to Lake Hicpoochee where it
was again set up.
The first work done with the
new dredge was to dig two cross
canals, their purpose being to drain
the marshes on either side of the
main canal to find out whether the
soil would grow rice.
Some rice was sewn and it grew
so tall on account of the rich soil
that the stalks fell over of their own
weight before the heads matured.
These rice stalks grew over five feet
tall. After this experience we gave
up the idea of growing rice.
After digging the two cross
canals, the dredge was dismantled
again and towed down the Ritta
River by a little stern Wheel steam-
boat called 'The Rosalie.'"
Before beginning on the new
canal, which was to go from Ritta
River south toward Shark River, it
was decided to take soundings for
rock in order to determine the exact
course the canal should take. We
sent out two different parties to
make this sounding and they both
returned to the dredge at the end of
a couple of days, resorting that they

could not get through the swamp
and sawgrass. My brother and I and
our cook, John Weatherford, then
decided that we would make the
sounding ourselves. We took one
canoe and sneak (?) boat. Our
equipment consisted of three
woolen blankets, three rubber blan-
kets and three 6-inch boards, each
seven feet long. These boards were
placed across the canoe and sneak
boat at night as a bed. This was dur-
ing the dry season and there was
practically no water in the marshes
in the Everglades. We had to drag
out boats practically all the way. In
spite of the dry weather, the mos-
quitoes were so bad that we had to
go to bed as soon as the sun went
down to have theiprotection of our
mosquito bar w~hh was suspend-
ed over our board bed.
For 17 days we traveled making
soundings as we went along. By
this time our provisions were get-
ting to low that we had to turn
toward the pine timber and back
toward the dredge to get more sup-
plies. Fortunately, heavy rains set in
at about this time and we were able
to finish the sound igs by boat.

County Sheriff warns about drug operations clean up


City and county
agencies work
together

By Ideybis Gonzalez
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON The Hendry
County Sheriff's Office continues
working to clear the streets of
illegal drugs, or at least put a size-
able dent in drug trafficking and
drug sales within the county.
Recently, the efforts of the
sheriff's office led to the arrest of
a Montura man, Juan Antonio
Sanchez, 33. Sanchez was
charged with operating a drug
house, possession of marijuana
with intent to sell and other


drug-related charges after inves-
tigators obtained a search war-
rant and conducted a search at
his home.
Deputies found 8.5 pounds of
suspected marijuana at the
North Trebel Street home,
according to the sheriff's office.
The amount totaled a street
value of approximately $16,000.
Investigators also found
packing materials and other
drug paraphernalia inside the
residence.
Sanchez was taken to the
Hendry County Jail on April 18,
where last week he was await-
ing trial with a $51,000 bond.
It is the latest drug-related
arrest to occur within the coun-
ty, in an ongoing operation to


clear the streets of as much ille-
gal drug activity as possible.
Sheriff Ronnie Lee said his
officers "are working tirelessly,"
to follow all leads that come in.
"We will continue working
towards keeping our community
drug free," the sheriff said. "We
will continue doing so as long as
it takes."
In another operation, the
sheriff's office partnered with
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment to execute another war-
rant.
The two agencies conducted
the operation on April 20.
Nathaniel Thomas, 35, of
Clewiston, was arrested, facing
the charge of possession of
cocaine with intent to sell.


Similar to the Montura
seizure; officers found Thomas
in a residence on West Paso
Avenue in Clewiston.
Officers found an unidenti-
fied amount of suspected crack
cocaine and a loaded 9 millime-
ter handgun in the property.
The county and city, law
enforcement agencies say they
work together from time to time
to ensure a more successful
operation.
"Our guys work great togeth-
er, said Clewiston Assistant Chief
Kristine Petersen and am very
glad we had this opportunity to
show how well they can do" she
added.

Many containers of tabs, esti-
mated to be 15 gallons of alu-
minum tabs, were donated by

fund helps provide transporta-
tion for children and their par-
ents to the Shriners' Burn Center
in Texas. The Burn Center is a
free service to burned children.
.The transportation fund also
helps provide maintenance to
the vans they use.

Tribal members who wish to


Hendry and Glades leaders discuss common concerns


By Patty Brant
INI FLORIDA
LABELLE With develop-
ment and its side effects looming
all across Hendry and Glades
counties, commissioners from
both counties met in a joint
workshop session for the second
time Monday evening. Hendry-
County Commission Chairman
Kevin McCarthy called the.meet-
ing to order and nine of the ten
total commissioners with a num-
ber of their staff met to share
their planning status and ideas.


CommissionerlJanet Taylor from
Clewiston was not present.
Hendry County Planner Vince
Cautero was up first, detailing
the West LaBelle Area plan as it
stands today. He told the group
that the Department of Commu-
nity Affairs rejected the original
plan for the area north and west
of LaBelle in 2005 with three
major concerns: transportation,
water and sewer service and an
appropriate mix of land uses. In
fact, he said, DCA was con-
cerned that the proposed density
was too low. The county is com-


mitted to keeping density low
along the river. DCA wants to
prevent sprawl using techniques
like trading densities, as is done
in Collier County, clustering and
building in compact "rural vil-
lage" style.
Hendry County has been
working with the City of LaBelle
to work out water and sewer
service for the area. Developers
may be allowed to supply those
services there temporarily, until
government is able to. He prom-
ised a revised plan this week.
The Four Corners area, where
Hendry,. Glades, Lee and Char-
lotte counties meet, is expected
to become a population center,
with developments in the West
LaBelle area, Muse, eastern Lee
County and Babcock Ranch.
" Glades County's Larry Hilton
talked about the proposed Muse
Village. The comprehensive plan


was approved for it last year. Just
a short distance north of the
Hendry County line, transporta-
tion issues will come into play
for both counties. In particular,
the less-than-adequate LaBelle
Bridge will be a sticking point. At
build out, Muse Village could
have as many as 3,500 dwellings.
At present 350 dwellings could
go in. The project encompasses
some 800 acres around the West
Glades Elementary School. Mr.
Hilton said the village will be
"self sustaining," with commer-
cial properties that would pro-
vide residents with daily necessi-
ties, limiting their need to drive
elsewhere, straining local roads.
He said Glades County will prob-
ably encourage commercial
zoning first, but understood that
the balance will be tricky.

By Barbara (Harding)
Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
Upon one occasion, when in
grammar school, our homework
assignment was to write about
our family including grandpar-
ents, great-grandparents or any
others in the family, no matter
how far back they happened to
be.
From time to time I had heard
my father speak of the Harding
kinfolks, from whence he came
and the Halseys from whence my
mother, "Mama" came. In our his-
tory class that year these two
names came up and the teacher
pointed out that Mr. Harding had
attained the highest position in
the country being elected pres-
ident of the United States and Mr.
Halsey had earned the highest
position in the military as a full
admiral. I thought: "Oh, we must
be famous!" I had learned no real
particulars about either one since
history was not one of my favorite
subjects back then. And I had no
idea how far this kinship went
back. At any rate, the assignment
was to write an essay about these
two men.
That night, I started asking my
father questions. I noticed that he
looked rather startled when I
introduced the subject of the
assignment and even more so


when I began asking questions. It
wasn't like my father to beat
around the bush, especially when
it came to homework assign-
ments. But this time, he even
stammered.
I couldn't help but wonder
why I couldn't get answers to my
questions like I usually did. Finally
I said, "I think I remember hear-
ing you or "Mama" say that Presi-
dent Harding was a-way-back kin-
folk of our family and the same
with Admiral Halsey ...." I thought
surely this reminder would be all
that I needed to get enough
answers to write the essay assign-
ment.
But that was not the case. Sud-
denly my father thought of some
little chore that I needed to 'tend
to' and that he'd talk to me after
that. I did whatever it was, came
back and sat on the green box
stool as I usually did when talking
to him. I think he knew then that
the time had come. A few
moments in silence went by, then
he said, "Well, I think it might be
better this time if you write some-
thing about how great it is for a
man to be elected president and
say whatever you can about the
duties of that high office.
"As to Mr. Halsey, maybe you
should just write that you think it's
very difficult for a man to go
through all the steps and stages of
getting to the very top in the mili-
tary and how dangerous it is to


fight in a war...and, well, maybe
that'll be enoughh to at least earn a
passing grade. I know you won't
get an "A" on this assignment, but
don't worry, your "Mama" and I
won't fuss about this one.
I grew up, graduated and don't
remember ever consciously
thinking about these two men
again. But I do remember the
teacher saying to me, out loud in
front of the whole class: I'm sur-
prised that you didn't have more
to say about these two famous
men, especially since one has the
same name as you." I didn't say a
word.
The years went by and finally I
became deeply, seriously interest-
ed in the history of our country
and some who played such
important roles in that history.
It was then that I learned that
Mr. Warren Harding did not enjoy
a very enviable reputation as a
person or as a president and
about the same was true of Mr.
William (Bull) Halsey, regardless
of his high ranking in the military.
And then, upon an occasion
when a lively conversation was
taking place regarding ancestors,
I mentioned the Hardings and the
Halseys, at which time someone
quickly said, "Well, maybe that's
enough. If you're the offspring of
those two, that's quite a combina-
tion!"
I let the subject drop right then
and there.


More years went by and finally
I asked my husband, who is quite
an historian, if he'd get out books
on both these men so I could read
for myself about them.
In one of the books there was
this:
When John F. Kennedy made
his inaugural address back in
1961, the speech included: "Ask
not what your country can do for
you but what you can do for your
country."
This one sentence has gone
down in history as an original
with Mr. Kennedy and is no doubt
remembered above and beyond
anything else said that day.
However, history tells a some-
what different story. Some 90
years ago, June 16, 1916, Presi-
dent Warren G. Harding said, "In
the great fulfillment, we must
have a citizenship less concerned
with what the government can do
for it and more anxious about
what it can do for the nation."
The "art" of plagiarism can be
embraced by many.
John F. Kennedy was a
staunch Democrat, the second
man ever to be elected President
directly from the U. S. Senate.
Warren G. Harding was a
staunch Republican. He was the
first man to be elected to the pres-
idency directly from the U. S. Sen-
ate.
Across the great divide....ever
the twain shall meet.

Pre-kindergarten students listen to Shannon Bass, Glades County kindergarten teacher at
the open house at Glades County Child Development Center in Moore Haven on April 25.


House

Continued From Page 1
Shannon Bass, Glades County
kindergarten teacher, chatted with
pre-kindergarten students. After
asking a few warm-up questions,
she told them what to expect when
they arrive for kindergarten at ele-
mentary school.
Sharon Cope, Early Steps-Chil-
dren's Medical Services, represent-
ed Florida Department of Health.
She is based in Fort Myers, but trav-
els throughout Collier, Lee, Hendry
and Glades counties.
Ms. Cope makes observations
and informs parents about Early
Steps, services for infants and tod-
dlers which identifies and treats
problems before the age of three.
She has seen numerous pre-
schools, day care and pre-kinder-
garten facilities at the four counties
she serves.
"Hendry and Glades have some
of the best day cares," she said.
Other agencies set up booths or
tables outdoors near the play-
ground.
Maria Leavy, truant officer, rep-
resented Glades County School
District as well as Rita Story, trans-
portation and food services. Also
present were representatives from
United Way, and Abuse Counseling
& Treatment, Inc.


Eliza Brown knows what children need. She is the director of
Glades County Child Development Center in Moore Haven
which hosted the open house April 25.


Sue Reese, registered nurse and
health consultant, informed par-
ents and teachers about services
from Hendry and Glades Health
Departments. They provide hearing
and vision screenings during the
school year, and disaster training
for families and child centers.
The students had plenty of time
to play and ride tricycles. Eliza
Brown, the center's director, and
the classroom teachers were con-
stantly surrounded by children


looking for smiles and guidance.
One parent, Latoya Ford,
remarked that her son, Atrelle, had
attended school in another area
before going to Glades County
Child Development Center. He was
lonesome for his old school, but
the transition was brief. He talked
to her one day about his new class.
"Momma, I like this school,"
Atrelle said.
Ms Ford was pleased.

Run

Continued From Page 1
The 35th Annual Florida
games were held in Tampa on
April 27-28.
Over 3,300 athletes, coaches
and families were expected to
attend along with 1,400 volun-
teers.
There were several separate
torch runs in Florida within the
last month. The final leg of the run
finishes at the University of South
Florida in Tampa, which hosted
the games.
Glades County volunteer run-
ners were officers from Moore
Haven Correctional Facility, which
is operated by GEO Group Inc.
Tom Levins, warden, was happy
to report that 25 runners covered
approximately 30 miles.
"I was very proud of employee
willingness to participate in such
a worthwhile event," said Warden
Levins, who wished to thank
Glades County Sheriff Stuart
Whiddon and his office for pro-
viding police escort for the run-
ners.
Mr. Levins said he would like
the event to be carried out annu-
ally and next year fundraising
work will begin early in the year
to recruit sponsors and volun-
teers. It would be good for the
Glades area to keep up an interest
in Special Olympics, says Warden
Levins.
In international Olympic news,
the World Summer Games 2007
will be held in Shanghai, China
during October.
Florida's team will compete
there in eight sports with 22 ath-
letes and three coaches. The Spe-

of Glades County's School Dis-

It all added up to a busy and
well-organized day for the stu-
dents. Career day presenters

they can begin to plan their
future occupations.

Riders of LaBelle and others to
seek site sponsors for the poker
run, prizes for the biker games and
door prizes for attendees," Ms.
Whirls said.
The poker run isn't the only
attraction this time around, Ms.
Whirls explained.
"This year, food will be available
as part of a Guns and Hoses barbe-
cue cook off competition between
the Glades County Sheriff's Depart-
ment and Glades County Volunteer


Fire Departments," she said.
Event organizers are hoping to
attract a good number of people
that day.
"We'll have live music and are
designing a commemorative patch
to be available for sale during the
event," Ms. Whirls said, noting that
motorcycle clubs, like Rolling
Thunder and others often attend
rallies to collect event patches.
"Located as we are within two
hours north of Miami and south of
Orlando and within an hour of
West Palm Beach on one coast and
Fort Myers on the other, we hope to
attract motorcycle enthusiasts from
the four corners of the map," Ms.


Whirls said.
Having the event in Moore
Haven provides a few advantages
over a similar event anywhere else.
Ms. Whirls said organizers hope
visitors will stick around long
enough to see just what Moore
Haven has to offer.
"Once you get away from the
traffic in the cities, it's a great ride to
Moore Haven, and once folks get
here they'll be able to enjoy our
scenic beauty, our picturesque
riverfront and the hometown hos-
pitality that makes Moore Haven
one of the best places to live in
Florida," Ms. Whirls said.

Don't let life's aggravations 'spoil' your positive attitude


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I enjoy cold iced tea and Diet
Mountain Dew. Orange juice is one
of my all time favorites. But every
now and then there isnothing that
beats the juice of the cow. There is
nothing much better than having a
nice ice cold glass of milk with a
warm chocolate chip cookie or a
rich gooey brownie.
Some years ago, I readied
myself for the cow juice blessing. I
had just taken a batch of cookies
out of the oven and popped one in
my mouth. I reached in the refriger-
ator and took out the jug of milk
and took a couple of gulps to help
wash it down. (You can do that
when you aren't married!)
What happened next, however,
was not the joy that I had envi-


sioned. The cookie experience and
all the good that went along with it
was ruined as I spewed out what I
had just taken in. The milk was
sour. I learned
that day that
there is a price
to be paid for
leaving milk out
too long. Bad
milk can ruin a
good thing.
Good milk
turns bad when
it's not kept John
cool enough. Hicks
Good dispo-
sitions can turn bad for the same
reason. If we let aggravations or irri-
tations simmer too long without
giving them a period of time for
cooling off, we can stew ourselves
into a bad attitude. Just like bad
milk, a bad attitude can ruin a good


thing. As one of my friends shared,
"Bad attitudes are the darkrooms
where "negatives" are developed."
In the tenth chapter of the
Gospel of Luke we find a classic
example of the sweet becoming
sour, of good becoming bad, of
positive becoming negative.
Martha invited Jesus and the disci-
ples to dinner. While Martha was
busy doing all of the things that
needed to be done, her sister was
sitting down listening to Jesus
teach. This annoyed Martha to no
end. What had started out to be an
attitude of joy and service for
someone special quickly cur-
dled. Martha lost perspective and
her focus turned more towards
herself and her situation. With
time, she developed an attitude
and her attitude spoiled the gift
she was offering.
A bad attitude can ruin a good


thing. Satan knows that. Satan
uses that. Notice that he didn't
take Martha out of the kitchen; he
took away her purpose in the
kitchen. The adversary won't turn
you against the church; he will
turn you toward yourself in the
church. He won't take you away
from your work; he'll take away
your joy in your work.
There is a life-lesson here for us.
We have a choice everyday regard-
ing the attitude we will embrace for
that day. We cannot change our
past. We cannot change the fact
that people will act in a certain way.
We cannot change the inevitable.
We can however, change how we
react to it.
We are in charge of our atti-
tudes. To keep an attitude from
souring, treat it like you would a jug
of milk: Keep it cool and check it
regularly to make sure it's good.


"Pleasant words (and atti-
tudes) are a honeycomb, sweet
to the soul and healing to the
bones." (Proverbs 16:24)

At what cost has God been taken out of schools?


By Jackie Miller
Minister First

ginia Tech," I received the following

ginia Tech, Blacklburg, Va. 4-16-07?
Sincerely, A Cdncerned Student.
Reply: Dear Concerned Student;
Sorry, I am not allowed in schools!


Sincerely, GOD.
How did this get started? Let's
see, I think it started when Madeline
Murray O'Hare complained she did-
n't want any prayer in our schools.
And we said, Okay. Then, someone
said you better not read the Bible in
school, the Bible that says, "Thou
shalt not kill, Thou shalt not steal
and love your neighbor as yourself."
And we said, Okay.
Dr. Benjamin Spock said we
shouldn't spank our children when
they misbehave because their little
personalities would be warped and
we might damage their self-
esteem. And we said,, "An expert
should know what he's talking
about." So we won't spank them
anymore.
Then someone said, "Teachers
and principals better not discipline
our children when they misbe-
have." And the school administra-
tors said, "No faculty member in
this school better touch a student


when they misbehave because we
don't want any bad publicity. And
we surely don't want to be sued."
And we accepted their reasoning.
Then someone said, "Let's let
our daughters have abortions if
they want, and they won't even
have to tell their parents." And we
said, "That's a grand idea!" Then
some wise school board member
said, "Since boys will be boys and
they're going to do it anyway, let's
give our sons all the condoms they
want, so they can have all the fun
they desire and we won't have to
tell their parents they got them at
school." And we said, "That's
another great idea!"
Then, some of our top elected
officials said, "It doesn't matterwhat
we do in private as long as we do
our jobs." And we said, "It doesn't
matter what anybody, including the
President, does in private as long as
we have jobs and the economy is
good." Someone else took that


appreciation a step further publish-
ing pictures of nude children. Then,
stepping further still, made them
available on the Internet.
We said, "Everyone's entitled to
free speech!" And the entertain-
ment industry said, "Let's make TV
shows and movies that promote
profanity, violence and illicit sex.
Let's record music that encourages
rape, drugs, murder-suicide, and
satanic themes." And we said, "It's
just entertainment and has no
adverse effect and nobody takes it
seriously anyway, so go right
ahead!" Now we're asking our-
selves why our children have no
conscience, why they don't know
right from wrong, and why it does-
n't bother them to kill strangers,
classmates or even themselves.
Undoubtedly, if we thought
about it long and hard enough, we
could figure it out. I'm sure it has a
great deal to do with, "We reap
what we sow!"

What you don't say is as important as what you say


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
One of my friends who minis-
ters at a large, inner-city church
has a sign as you enter his office
complex that p
reads "Don't ,
speak unless
you can
improve on the | f' %;
silence!" That
certainly got
my attention
the first time I
read it; and
gave me pause Samuel S.
for thought. Thomas
Some other
person changed another well-
known saying "When all is said
and done..." by concluding it
with"....there's a lot more said
than done." Many times, I've
watched two persons on televi-
sion who have opposing views
trying to talk. Before one is fin-
ished, the other will chime in to


interrupt. Usually, the first speaker
keeps on talking; both talking at
the same time and neither one lis-
tening to the other. It is as if the
one who can shout the loudest
and longest will have people sup-
porting him.
The writer of Ecclesiastes tells
us "there is a time to be silent and a
time to speak" (Chapter 3, Verse 7).
We don't get many clues from him
about just when it is best to speak
or best to keep silent; but 1 have
often observed that I can "say"
something by my silence. Some-
times "out of the blue" someone
will come with a question that
sounds like they have already
decided what the answer is sup-
posed to be. I get the direction they
wish to go by the nature of the
question ("You don't really believe
that..., do you?" types of questions)
and find the person really doesn't
want an answer but an affirmation
that we are like-minded and he is
right! I usually try to be polite but
do not answer; an answer will do
no good when there is no question


Area Church News in Brief


CREW to host
Gospel concert
CLEWISTON There will be a
gospel concert on May 19, at the
John Boy auditorium. The time will
be from 6 until 9 p.m. This concert is
sponsored byyour CREW organiza-
tion. A Love offering will be taken to
further aid in the rebuilding of lives
and property of the lake area. There
is still a lot of devastation around.
CREW needs your volunteer sup-
port and financial support. Anyone
or groups wanting to be a part of
this concert please call, David
McClusky at (863) 983-5060. As the
start of the 2007 hurricane season
approaches let's enter it with all of


our neighbors on our minds.
Gospel concert
to come in June
BELLE GLADE Beginning
June 8-10, the men of St. John First
Missionary Baptist Church will
sponsor a Men's Conference. The
conference will kick off with a high
praising, foot stomping, anointed
Gospel Concert on June 8, at 7:30
p.m. The concert will be held at: St.
John First Missionary Baptist
Church, 600 South West Eighth
Street in Belle Glade.
Rev. Dr. Robert L. Reese is pastor.
Come and join us in uplifting
the name of Jesus. If you/your
group is interested in participating,


being asked.
Isaiah's summary about the
death of Jesus tells us "He was
oppressed and afflicted, yet He did
not open His mouth; he was led
like a lamb to the slaughter and as a
sheep before her shearers is silent,
He opened not His mouth" (Chap-
ter 53:7). He reflects that there was
a time to be silent! Why would
have Jesus been silent?
I believe because He knew how
things were going to turn out, He
knew of the futility of speaking, of
entering into a "shouting match"
with people who already had their
minds made up by selfishness, jeal-
ousy, their own interests, sin. There
would be another time to speak.
It would come a few days later
when He met His companions on
the beach and asked them if they
had any fish. It would come in the
upper room when Jesus would
simply say to Thomas "Here, put
your fingers in the nail prints..." and
the words would be few, hardly
breaking the silence, but they
would speakvolumes.

My guide has been to watch, to
share an opinion when I think the
questions are asked in sincerity, to
say why I feel as I do if asked, to lis-
ten as best I can to those who are
sincerely questioning (versus those
who feel their job is to convert) and
to be ready to remain silent.
A former Air Force Colonel who
went into the ministry later in life
used to say "A man convinced
against his will is of the same opin-
ion still." He had a point. I am will-
ing to wait to speak if I think it will
mean that I might really be heard.
The Lord didn't need to speak
much at the end of His earthly life;
He knew how things were going to
turn out. That has been a helpful
example to me when I think I
know how things are going to turn
out, too.
Recently, among those who
asked for our prayers was a person
who asked for healing without
surgery. The nature of his problem
was such that in the majority of
cases, surgery is required. I under-
stood his apprehension; under-

stood that it wasn't our place to tell
God what means to use to answer
and I also understood the place for
silence in our contacts. Finally, he
told me that surgery was necessary
and I responded "You'll do great!"
and reminded him of what has
happened in my life when I try to


tell God what to do and not to lis-
ten. It applies to others and to me
as well silence can speak vol-
umes; persuasion comes in honest
sharing; avoid useless shouting
matches. We can all learn to listen
and let God's will speak to us. Bet-
ter for the blood pressure, too!

Edison Community College prepares for future expansion


By Kristin Hunter
INI Florida
LABELLE The Edison Col-
lege board held its monthly meet-
ing at the LaBelle High School
auditorium for the very first time
on Tuesday, April 17. The focus of
the meeting was what has been
learned from the Virginia Tech
incident along with the growth of
the Hendry-Glades campus.
Hendry-Glades campus Dean
Lucinda Kelley gave a presenta-
tion on the growth of the LaBelle
campus. She began her presenta-
tion saying what a great staff she
has including: Administrative Spe-
cialist Cindy Simmons, Adminis-
trative Specialist Heath Daniels,
Learning Assistance Lab Parapro-
fessional Marie Sprouse and Test
Proctor Crystal Saldana. She went
on to mention some of the cam-
pus' statistics. There are currently
43 percent full time enrolled stu-
dents, with 57 percent of the stu-
dent body enrolled part time with
less than 12 credit hours; 16 per-
cent of those students are dual
enrolled, meaning they are still
currently enrolled in high school


HENDRY COUNTY The
Winds of Change highlights how
parenting has changed over the
years as a result of changes in
social, cultural and demograph-
ic trends in families. The pin-
wheel represents this change
and the message of April, Child
Abuse Prevention Month. This
year 834 pinwheels were given
out in local communities. Each
pinwheel represents a new birth
in our community and an oppor-
tunity to support a new family
from the very beginning.
In Hendry County there were
757 births in 2005 and in Glades
County there were 77.
"Parenting is not an easy job,
young parents need our sup-
port," says Judy Paskvan, Pro-
gram Manager for Healthy Fami-
lies. "Babies do not come with
instructions and young parents
need to understand how their
baby develops and grows, as
well as, how important they are
in the lives of their children."
The Healthy Families Pro-
gram is focused on the preven-
tion of child abuse and neglect
and helps families from the very
beginning with a positive parent-
ing approach. Family Support
Workers support -parents in
being the best parents they can
be by learning about their child's
development, the importance of
preventive health and creating a
safe home environment for the


as well. The vast majority of the
student body, 71 percent, is
female; 49 percent have a GPA of
3.0 or above. Forty-six percent of
the student body is of minority
background, 37-38 percent are
Hispanic. Sixty-nine percent of the
students are between the ages of
15-24 and 60 percent are 21 years
old and under.
This year, three students Brian-
na Gutierrez, Carhen Torrealba
and Angela Hester, will receive
both their AA and high school
diploma.
Enrollment continues to climb.
Currently the full time equivalency
(FTE) count is 249 and the head
count is 584. Mrs. Kelley pointed
out that Edison is a tangible, prac-
tical and affordable college. The
LaBelle location offers complete
degree offerings in both AA and
AS degrees. The college is trying
to reestablish the EMS program
and has started English for Acade-
mic Purpose, or EAP class specifi-
cally designed for students who
need English for their studies. The
campus is also offering the CLEP, a
College Level Exam Placement
Test. This test is a subject area test.


If a student passes the test, college
credit will be earned for that sub-
ject. It is a nationally administered
test and for many students, a great
opportunity. The LaBelle office is
in the process of hiring a full time
Advisor/Financial Aid Officer to
help students with all their finan-
cial/academic needs and will soon
also be hiring a Student Service
Specialist as well. They have
recently hired a part-time IT (Infor-
mation Technology) support per-
son who has been well used
already. There is now an on site
security officer who works during
school hours.
The College Placement Test is
being offered at local high schools
each semester for students who
didn't take the SAT or ACT. The
LaBelle office has recently taken
approximately 70 students from
LaBelle High School to visit the
main Edison campus located in
Lee County.
Mrs. Kelley has been doing
classroom presentations at high
schools, recruiting students to join
Edison as well as going to senior
events, awards and assemblies.
Edison has currently been

result of educating new parents in methods for more effec-
tive parenting and focusing on the prevention of child abuse.


children. Everyone can help pro-
tect our children by:
Being a role model by
demonstrating for children and
other adults how Conflicts can
be resolved without hitting or
yelling;
Volunteering your time to
help strengthen families in our
community;
Getting to know your
neighbors and their children or
grandchildren;
Offering to baby-sit for free
to give stressed parents a little
time for themselves;
Becoming a mentor for a


child or new parent;
Donating your children's
outgrown clothing or toys to a
family in need;
Learning what child abuse
is;
Recognizing the common
signs of abuse;
Reporting Abuse.

Hendry-Glades Education Day, a
Job and Career Expo, the Work-
force Council of SWFL and had
booths at both the Swamp Cab-
bage and Sugar Festival. Recently
the Richard H. Rush library in Lee
County donated some much
needed furniture to the LaBelle
Edison office.
The Hendry-Glades campus
will be awarding 12 HOPE schol-
arships this year. HOPE stands for
Helping One Person Excel. This
year's Thanksgiving Food Drive
raised over $2,000. The Hendry-
Glades campus has had two finan-
cial aid weekend workshops so
far and will have another one on
May 5. The Hendry-Glades cam-
pus has received two new build-
ings- a DLA or Developmental
Learning Lab and a classroom full
of computers.

HRMC to celebrate National Nurses Week


By Glenda Wilson
HRMC
National Nurses Week is cele-
brated annually from May 6, (also
known as National Nurses Day)
through May 12, (the birthday of
Florence Nightingale, the founder
of modern nursing). During this
week long event, nurses are rec-
ognized from coast to coast for
the work they perform and the
role they play in the delivery of
healthcare.
According to projections from
the Bureau of Labor Statistics
(BLS), RNs top the list of the 10
occupations with the largest pro-
jected job growth in the next five
years. Although RNs have listed
among the top ten growth occupa-
tions in the past, this is the first time
in recent history that RNs have
ranked first. These projections are
widely used in career guidance, in


planning education and training
programs and in studying long-
range employment trends. Accord-
ing to the BLS report, more than 2.9
million RNs will be employed in the
year 2012, up 623,000 from the
nearly 2.3 million RNs employed in
2002. However, the total job open-
ings, which include both job
growth and the net replacement of
nurses, will be more than 1.1 mil-
lion. This growth, coupled with
current trends of nurses retiring or
leaving the profession and fewer
new nurses, could lead to a short-
age of more than one million nurs-
es by the end of this decade. (Dur-
ing Career Day at Clewiston High
School, David McClusky, from
Hendry Regional Medical Center,
encouraged students to seek
careers in healthcare related fields.)
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter and its associated clinics staff a
total of 64 nursing related person-


nel, which consist of Advanced
Registered Nurse Practitioners, Cer-
tified Registered Nurse Anes-
thetists, Registered Nurses,
Licensed Practical Nurses, Certified
Medical Assistants, and Certified
Nursing Assistants. HRMC will host
a reception in honor of its nursing
staff on Wednesday, May 9, from 5
p.m. to 7 p.m. in the hospital con-
ference room.
National Nurses Week is a great
time for the for people in the com-
munity to celebrate the spirit of
nursing and other health profes-
sionals Join Hendry Regional
Medical Center in thanking those
individuals who work very hard to
administer healthcare with kind-
ness and compassion, educate
patients and the public about vari-
ous medical conditions, and pro-
vide advice and emotional support
to patients' family members.

dation is in the process of a com-
memorative brick fundraiser.

existing hospital and connected
by an enclosed corridor.
Your brick memorial will play
a prominent role in the beauty
and character of the project. One
day soon, visitors will be able to
see the community's generosity
and financial support of Hendry
Regional Medical Center.

ing a Pathway to Modern Health-
care One Brick at a Time." Your
contribution will provide a visi-
ble and meaningful way to


honor friends and loved ones.

CLEWISTON The CREW
fundraiser was a success and also
a change for CREW to recognize
all those individuals, families and
agencies that have helped us
along the way. Awards of appreci-
ation were given to all those who
helped CREW in meeting the
needs of the community. Rev-
erend John Hicks and Vice Presi-
dent of CREW, David McClusky
presented the awards and told the
story of how CREW grew from a
request made by the City of
Clewiston to the Clewiston Minis-
terial Association. Friend and for-
mer Radio DJ and Chairman of
Chamber of Commerce, Sean
Moore, helped emcee the night.
Two of the families helped by
CREW attended and spoke of
how much CREW's help aided
them to get their lives back
together.
CREW also presented their
first rebuild for one of these fami-
lies and gave the family their offi-
cial Certificate of Occupancy as a
surprise. During the event, CREW
shared stories about the families
they have been able to help over
300 and how many more Hurri-
cane Wilma families are still left
to help still over 300. They also
shared their hopes that no future
storms will wreak havoc on our
two counties and spoke of their
