City planning for future


Main Street Moore
Haven seeks input
from residents

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Mari-
na RV Park was the meeting site
for Main Street Moore Haven, an
agency which was designated in
2005 by the Florida Main Street


Advisory Committee and Flori-
da's secretary of state.
Glades County Economic
Development Council oversees
the local program. In general,
these programs help revitalize
old commercial districts in towns
across the country.
Tracy Whirls, Glades County
economic development director,
is the part-time director of Main
Street Moore Haven. She began
the second annual membership
meeting telling members and


public guests of positive develop-
ments that Moore Haven has
seen since Main Street was desig-
nated.
Ms. Whirls mentioned the
opening of a private physician's
office and the main office for an
attorney. There is the planned
opening of a child care center in
the old post office, and renova-
tion plans for the Lundy hard-
ware building and the Hartstad
building which abuts the old
arcade.


Vanishing Si s. fun: Center celebrates anniversary


IN, Nena Bolan
These children at Vanishing Species Wildlife Center are abandoning their shoes for a
good bounce at the center's anniversary weekend on May 12-13. The center is located
near Palmdale in Glades County.


Also mentioned is the return
of Goodwill Industries, which
plans to build a large store, dona-
tion center and office. First Bank
of Clewiston has plans to build a
branch in the near future, and the
barbeque restaurant on the west
end of town is soon up for pur-
chase.
Frank DeMarchi was the guest
speaker that night. Mr. DeMarchi,
a consultant for Main Street
Moore Haven, addressed three
positive issues that must be fol-


lowed up with input from resi-
dents:
Through economic analy-
sis, residents must research and
identify what goods and services
will have the greatest likelihood
of success if added to the Main
Street district.
To identify physical
improvements and potential
businesses along U.S. 27 could
encourage travelers to stop and

awry, backfires


Three people
shot

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On Fri-
day, May 11, Glades County
deputies arrested Herbert L.
Baker, 17, and charged him with
two counts of attempted felony
murder. The incident left two
victims and one suspect with
gunshotwounds.
Deputy Wiekert, Deputy
Nieves and Sergeant Stripling
responded to several 911 calls
placed about 9 p.m. which
reported shots fired. They
arrived at Bo Robert's trailer park


where two males were found
with gunshot wounds. A suspect
with gunshot wounds was later
located at Hendry Regional Med-
ical Center.
According to Detective Har-
ris, an intruder broke through a
rear door dressed in black and
wearing a dark mask, produced
a handgun and shots were fired.
Sabrina Brown, mother of
Herbert L. Baker, was arrested,
charged with reportedly driving
the intended getaway vehicle.
"She knew a crime was
going to be committed," said
Detective Sergeant Steve Harris
during a phone call after having
spent a great deal of effort

Memorial Day
service May 30

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
For the first time, the Glades
County Memorial Day service
will be held at the new Glades
County Pavilion at Ortona Ceme-
tery, Route 78 between Route 29
and Moore Haven at 11:00 a.m.
on Memorial Day.
In former years, the service
has been held under the oaks at
the entrance of the cemetery.
Memorial Day originated dur-
ing the Civil War when some
Southern women chose May 30


to decorate soldiers' graves. The
women honored the dead of
both the Union and Confederate
armies.
It is believed that a Virginia
woman, Casandra Oliver Mon-
cure, was largely responsible for
honoring slain soldiers on a spe-
cial day.
Memorial Day, or Decoration
Day, is a patriotic holiday in the
United States.
It is a day to honor American
servicemen and women who
gave their lives for their country.
Originally, Memorial Day hon-
ored men who had died in the
Civil War. Now, however, it hon-
ors those who died in the Span-

Prom is a 'Night


to Remember'


After years of hard work and
the donations from local busi-
ness and individuals, the Moore
Haven Junior-Senior High School
students enjoyed a very special
prom at The Walt Disney World
Dolphin and Swan Resorts locat-
ed in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. on
May 5. This resort is located near
the Magic Kingdom Park, Dis-
ney's Animal Kingdom, Disney's
Blizzard Beach, Disney's MGM
Studios, Disney's Typhoon
Lagoon Water Park, and Epcot.
Despite the two-hour long
ride, the students enjoyed the trip
on the Sawgrass Tours charter
buses from Fort Lauderdale.
Upon arriving, the students
entered the building through the
valet entrance. The building had
an 8-foot tall dolphin fountain.
The ceiling appeared to have
stars in main entrance and the
walls had tranquility fountains.


Chandeliers hung from the lobby
with high vaulted ceilings.
The adventure began as stu-
dents admired artwork from a
gallery then took a walk down
the escalator to the Swan side of
the resort where they enjoyed a
view of the landscape, a swan
fountain, and Disney's Board-
walk. Students had the option of
taking a leisurely cruise along the
waterways that connect the
hotels to Epcot and Disney-MGM
Studios with a chaperone.
Upon entering the ballroom
there were round tables with
floor length table cloths. The cen-
terpieces were made of purple
vases, sand, clear marbles, purple
flowers, white candles and con-
fetti around them. Appreciation
goes to Stefanie Hamilton,
Michael Hutchinson, Tiffany

Hurricane season quickly approaching Crime Stoppers


By Ideybis Gonzalez
Independent Newspapers
With the 2007 hurricane sea-
son just around the corner, emer-
gency management officials are
urging all residents especially
those living near the Lake Okee-
chobee area to be prepared for
anything.
Hurricane season begins June
I.
Many hurricane experts,
including the National Hurricane
Center, are predicting a busier-
than-usual hurricane season this
year, reason enough for citizens
to be prepared if a large storm
threatens to hit the general area.
The ghosts of Hurricane
Wilma and the hurricanes before
it can still be seen from Glades
County to the westernmost por-
tion of Palm Beach County, and
recovery efforts, rebuilding and
the like, are continuous projects
that still have not been entirely
completed in some areas.
Despite this, there is very little


that can be done to prevent
another devastating result of a
future hurricane, but emergency
managers say plenty can be done
to protect the family during such
an event.
Debbie McDuffie, the branch
manager for the Glades Area
American Red Cross in South Bay,
has experienced natural disasters
before. Ms. McDuffie has man-
aged shelters in the Glades follow-
ing major hurricanes and now
heads up the department which
has jurisdiction over the areas of
western Palm Beach County,
Hendry and Glades counties.
After Hurricane Wilma, Ms.
McDuffie noticed how few fami-
lies were prepared to deal with a
hurricane.
Some become complacent
when forecasted storms have not
turned out, and stop preparing
altogether. Last year, experts pre-
dicted a busy season, but only
one storm, which never grew to
become a hurricane, threatened
to hit.


"Sending out the message of
how important it is to have a fami-
ly emergency preparedness kit is
one of our top priorities," said
Mrs. McDuffie.
According to the American
Red Cross, essential items to
stock up on before a hurricane
include:
First aid kit and important
medications
Canned food to for at least 3-
4 days and can opener
At least three gallons of
water per person
Protective clothing, rain-
wear, and bedding or sleeping
bags
Battery-powered radio,
flashlight, and extra batteries
Special items for infants, eld-
erly, or disabled family members
As a reminder, many of the
items included in the list can be
purchased during the tax-free
week of June 1 to June 12.
The nature of hurricanes and
the advancements made in track-
ing them, give the unique chance,


at least in the natural world, to
prepare for the impending
onslaught. Unlike tornados, vol-
cano eruptions and earthquakes,
hurricanes are often spotted a few
days to as much as a week before
they make landfall.
With the number of mobile
homes throughout the Glades,
officials tend to identify home-
owners in those area as being
most susceptible to harm during
a hurricane. The rocking winds
sometimes tear homes from their
foundations.
Mobile home owners are
encouraged to have an updated
evacuation plan and emergency
kit on hand and ready before a
storm. If an especially powerful
storm is expected, law enforce-
ment officials encourage mobile
home owners to evacuate to a
safer location, including shelters
set up at each city.

The Palm Beach County Sher-
iff's Office is seeking assistance
from the public in locating the fol-
lowing wanted fugitive.
Herno Beauge, age 32, is a black
male with black hair and brown
eyes. He is 6 feet, 2 inches tall and
weighs approximately 180 pounds.
He has scars on his right arm, fore-
head and chest. He is also known
as Erick Beague and has formerly
resided on Southwest Seventh
Street in Belle Glade and was for-
merly employed as a laborer.
He is wanted on felony failure


As the weather heats up and
Florida boaters get ready to hit
the water, the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC) has a few tips to
help them stay safe on the water.
"There are two things every
boater can do to keep a fun day
from turning deadly stay alert
and always wear a life jacket,"
FWC Major Brett Norton said.
"We've already had 32 boating
fatalities this year, and three
boaters are missing. Those trag-
ic statistics are worse than at this
time last year."
The FWC and its law enforce-
ment partners in marine safety
will kick off the busy Memorial
Day boating weekend with a


to appear-
aggravated bat-
tery charges.
If anyone
has any infor-
mation about
the where-
abouts of this
wanted fugi-
tive, they are
asked to con- Herno
tact the Crime Beauge
Stoppers at 1-
(800)-458-TIPS (8477) or online
at crimestopperspbc.com.


demonstration of how effective
the new type of automatically or
manually inflatable life jackets
can be when a boater goes over-
board.
"Most crashes happen
because of operator inattentive-
ness, and most accident victims
who die drown because they
aren't wearing life jackets. It's
that simple," Major Norton said.
New, easy-to-wear life jackets
could help prevent boating
deaths. They are lightweight and
unobtrusive until they touch
water and inflate.

Belle Glade Fire-Rescue makes an unusual operation


By Lt. Mark V. Carr
PAHOKEE Palm Beach
County Fire-Rescue firefighters in
the small rural Florida cities of
Pahokee and Belle Glade handled
an unusual rescue on May 21. The
call came in for Engine:.72-Bravo
in Pahokee to respond to a dog
stuck in a canal in the 900 block of
McClure Road. Engine 72-Bravo


arrived and found the dog, indeed
trapped, in a weed-infested canal
about 100 feet wide. He was half
way between sides and mangled
in weeds, unable to swim to either
side and struggling to stay afloat,
Pahokee city workers and
Sheriff's deputies were trying
unsuccessfully to rescue the dog
with ropes. Engine 72-Bravo's Lt.


Mark Carr requested the assis-
tance of Fire-Rescue's new 2006
GTO 16' rescue airboat from Sta-
tion 73 in Belle Glade, a short dis-
tance away. Engine 73, under the
command of Lt. Frank Cote, and
Operations 7 responded with the
airboat and launched it in the
canal nearby.
Palm Beach County Animal


Control was on scene and went
out on the airboat and using a
snare, with the assistance of
Engine 73's crew, rescued the
exhausted dog.
Bystanders applauded the Fire-
Rescue crews as the dog was res-
cued from the canal. The dog was
brought to shore and turned over
to animal control.

SOUTH BAY Officials of the
City of South Bay urge all cus-
tomers in its water and waste-
water service area to dramatical-
ly reduce water consumption,
especially for outdoor irrigation.
Customers will soon receive a
letter outlining the restrictions
with their water utility bills.
This directive was prompted
by recent announcements by the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) regard-
ing record-level drought condi-
tions in most portions of the
state plus major wildfire activi-
ties statewide. Joining with
SFWMD, South Bay allows out-
door irrigation with reclaimed
(non-potable) andipotable water
according to SFWMD guidelines.
The customer letter states:
All South Bay water utility
customers should water no
more than two (2) days per
week, according to the SFWMD
designation based on customer
address.
Residents with odd-num-
bered home addresses will be
allowed to water between the
hours of 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Wednesday and Saturdays.


Residents with even-num-
bered home addresses will be
allowed to water between the
hours of 4 a.m. and 8 a.m. on
Thursday and Sundays.
No domestic water use for
outdoor irrigation will be
allowed on Mondays, Tuesdays
and Fridays.
Irrigation systems should
be used only in the early morn-
ing hours between 4 a.m. and 8
a.m. and for no more than thirty
minutes per zone. Hand-set
sprinklers should be used only
on designated days between 5
p.m. 7 p.m. and for no more
than 30 minutes per zone. Cus-
tomers with irrigation systems
should NOT use potable (drink-
ing water) for supplemental
watering.
The City of South Bay strongly
urges all customers to follow
these guidelines in order to pro-
tect their water supply. Cus-
tomers should also check with
local authorities to see if stricter
local guidelines are in place. For

Garbage and trash
removal a concern

By Nena Bolan
Independent Newspapers
MOORE HAVEN The
Moore Haven City Council met
May 15 and appointed council
member Mike Brantley as a rep-
resentative to the Southwest
Florida Regional Planning Coun-
cil.
The council is a six-county
panel that has committees for
restoring the Caloosahatchee
River, local emergency planning
and community housing.
Chief Deputy Robert DeMann


directs the new corrections facil-
ity. He was present to tell the
council that the facility will be up
and running July 1. A grand

opening is planned for June 22.
He will return to the June 5 city
council meeting to receive final
information from the city attor-
ney, Steve Ramunni.
Mike Brantley requested that
the council meet soon to discuss
the possibility of annexing prop-
erty to the city of Moore Haven. A
workshop for council members
was set for June 12.
Council member John Ahern
announced he would attend a
Bonita Springs City Council meet-
ing May 16. The city of Bonita
Springs wants more information


from Florida Power and Light
concerning the Glades Power
Park. Mr. Ahern will be available
for input at the meeting.
Claudia McPherson, a Wash-
ington Park resident, asked
about garbage and trash service.
Washington Park is a county
community adjacent to the city
limits of Moore Haven.
Recently, Waste Management
and Glades County did not
renew their solid waste removal
contract. The City of Moore
Haven was prepared to add
Washington Park to its garbage
service. The county and city
agreed that Moore Haven would
provide garbage service.


Since Washington Park is not
within city limits, and it will not
be scheduled for trash pick up
amnesty on June 11. Ms.
McPherson was concerned that
trash amnesty is not offered to
her community even though
they pay for garbage service.
Pick up for trash like wood,
metal, appliances and vegeta-
tion is a separate service from
garbage removal. The City of
Moore Haven has no agreement
with the county for trash pick up
service in Washington Park.
Council members advised Clau-
dia McPherson to seek more
information through the county.

Corps of Engineers battles drought along with the state


CLEWISTON, Fla. In
response to current drought con-
ditions, the U.S. Army COE of
Engineers, Jacksonville District
(COE) is expediting evaluation
of a request from the South Flori-
da Water Management District
(SFWMD) to change the COE's
regulation rules for Lake Istok-
poga and Water Conservation
Areas 1, 2A and 3A.
The COE is working with the
SFWMD, the U.S. Fish and
Wildlife Service and the Florida
Departments of Environmental


Protection and Agriculture to
identify the extent of any poten-
tial environmental concerns and
other issues, and to streamline
processes to address them.
The SFWMD has determined
that the 2007 drought requires
management actions that are dif-
ferent than those used in 2001
and is adapting their request to
the COE as the drought persists.
To conserve water, the COE is
currently limiting the use of the
locks on the Okeechobee Water-
way. Use of the locks may be fur-


their limited as conditions contin-
ue to change.
Representatives of the COE'
South Florida Operations Office
report that the lower lake level
has allowed controlled burning
activity on portions of the
exposed lakebed, disposing of
debris and oxygenating the soil.
Also, because of the drought,
under current conditions, aquat-
ic plant spraying has all but been
suspended, as the lack of water
has drastically reduced the
growth rates of invasive plants.

tact the Jacksonville District Cor-
porate Communication Office by

Beauty supply store is now open


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Da
Unique Beauty Supply store has
reopened at 271 Avenue I North-
west, Suite 2. The business own-
ers, LaFonda Brown and Garfield
Nevers had to renovate the build-
ing themselves after Hurricane
Wilma passed through town.
After repairing the roof and
walls they restocked the items and
opened again in February 2007.
There are a variety of items in
stock, according to the owners.
The store offers hair care
products, styling chemicals, hair
accessories, wigs, synthetic and
natural hair weaves, curling
irons, flat irons and blow dryers.
Other items are skin care prod-
ucts, makeup, jewelry, hand-
bags, belts, sunglasses, and
Jamaican apparel.
LaFonda Brown, who is no
stranger to the area, enjoys the
beauty supply business. Before
she opened her store, she had
thought about the idea for a long
time.
"I always wanted to open a
beauty supply store," Ms. Brown
said.
There are two services that
can also be purchased at Da
Unique Beauty Supply. They
include: pre-paid phone card
service and a bill pay station that
let's you pay phone, credit card
and department store card bills.
Garfield Nevers liked the idea
of opening a store, too.
He noticed that Ms. Brown
always had to drive out of town
to shop for the beauty supplies
she wanted. He believes cus-
tomers will like shopping closer
to home.
"We want to serve the com-
munity," Mr. Nevers said.


INI/Nena Bolan
LaFonda Brown is happy to help customers at her store at 271 Avenue I Northwest, Suite 2
in Moore Haven. Her store, called Da Unique Beauty Supply carries hair and skin care prod-
ucts, makeup, hair accessories and fashion accessories.


Both Ms. Brown and Mr. Nev-
ers have jobs in addition to run-
ning the business, and they open
the store from 12 to 8 p.m., seven
days a week; however, they can
be reached by phone at other
times of the day and they will
make it a point to try and open
the store and/or take your order.
Da Unique Beauty Supply's
slogan is "We Never Close."
The store address is 271
Avenue I Northwest Suite 2,
north of U.S. 27, and on the east
side of the nearby Mexican
restaurant.

Letters to the Editor


Save Our Creeks Is
doing its job
In a letter to the editor titled
"Rebuttal to Ms. Petersen" dated
April 5, Becky Hendry made some
inaccurate statements about Save
Our Creeks. For one, she wrote that
Ellen Peterson "has been deceptive
and may I say very successful in
removing many of the Glades
County Board Members of the
Fisheating Creek Save Our Creeks
Group and replaced many of them
with Sierra Club members from all
over the state. She has essentially
removed all the Glades County
members from Save Our Creeks,
that includes one of our county
commissioners and one head of
department as well as other influ-
ential citizens."
In fact, the current Save Our
Creeks' board, elected at its Gener-
al Membership Meeting on July 15,
2006, consists of four Glades Coun-
ty residents: Nancy Dale, Ann
Deuschle, Butch Jones (county
commissioner), and me. In addi-
tion, board member Rita Young-
man was a resident of Glades
County until just last month when
she moved across the county line
into Highlands County, but she is
still a landowner in Glades County,
as is Ellen Peterson. Board mem-
bers who reside outside of Glades
County and who are not landown-
ers in the county are Amber Braatz,
Helen Dixon, Clarke Keller, and
John Swingle, so the majority of
Save Our Creeks' board is com-
posed of residents or landowners
of Glades County. Glades County
board members who have recently
left the board were Becky Hendry
who voluntarily resigned for health


reasons, Tom Gaskins who also
voluntarily resigned despite being
asked to remain on the board,
Avant Brown who stopped coming
to meetings, and Warren Brown
(deceased). Ms. Hendry is simply
wrong about her allegations about
changes in the Save Our Creeks'
board being manipulated by Ellen
Peterson to remove citizens of
Glades County. I also note that Ellen
Peterson was one of Save Our
Creeks' original incorporators and
that I became a life member during
the organization's first operational
year, so Ms. Hendry's allegation
that Save Our Creeks has been
taken over by the two of us as out-
siders is inaccurate, since we have
been part of the organization since
its beginning.
In addition, Ms. Hendry ques-
tioned Ellen Peterson's truthfulness
about some notice letters regarding
meeting dates to the board and
other members that did not get
delivered. For one meeting, notice
letters were sent out but, due to
problems on the mailing list with a
few addresses, some did not
receive these -though most did.
As secretary of Save Our Creeks, I
personally checked into the source
of this problem and it is corrected.
Ms. Hendry is simply wrong about
notices being intentionally handled
improperly but, admittedly, there
was a problem here once.
Ms. Hendry also questioned the
purpose of Save Our Creeks. It is to
protect Fisheating Creek and other
endangered Florida waterways
and this has not changed since the
organization's founding. For Save
Our Creeks to take a stance against
the proposed FPL Glades Power-
park (FGPP) is completely within
its defined purpose, especially

since this facility is planned only a
mile or so south of the creek and is
likely to have a devastating impact
on the creek. Although FPL
spokesman Grover Whidden has
publicly denied multiple times that
there will be adverse impacts on
the creek or its wildlife from FGPP,
his assertions simply do not with-
stand scrutiny. For example, at the
public meeting held by FPL in Muse
that I attended, Mr. Whidden com-
pletely denied that mercury from
FGPP would hurt the local environ-
ment, outrageously claiming that
the smokestack would be so tall as
to whisk all the emitted mercury
away from the local area and that,
even if any were to fell nearby, it
would be the type of mercury that
would do no damage. In addition,
he even denied that there are now
any problems with mercury pollu-
tion locally, an incredibly blatant
ignoring of our current severe mer-
cury problems.
In contrast to Mr. Whidden's
denials of any potential harm from
FGPP, Dr. Tom Atkeson, the State of
Florida Mercury Coordinator (i.e.,
the chief scientist for the state in
charge of protecting us from mer-
cury poisoning), working for the
Department of Environmental Pro-
tection, stated the following in a let-
ter dated March 21, to the power
plant citing coordinator:
I am concerned that that the
application makes little mention of
the reasons why mercury in Florida
is such a specific concern, or analy-
sis of the likely impacts of the facili-
ty. The documents provided con-
tain little data or analysis that
supports conclusions as to the
potential impact of the facility.
Extensive areas of southern Florida
wetlands are vulnerable to mercu-
ry bioaccumulation, which results
in risk to humans and wildlife.
There are wetlands to the north,
south and west of the proposed site
that are potentially vulnerable.
Despite the small amounts of mer-
cury projected to be to be emitted,
it is well-understood that the pres-
ent-day biogeochemical cycle of
mercury is dominated by human
influences. In most aquatic systems


vulnerable to mercury deposition
load, the prevailing view is that the
driver of mercury bioaccumulation
and risk is from atmospheric depo-
sition by a combination of rainfall
and dry deposition. The subse-
quent processes of mercury bio-
transformation and biomagnifica-
tion amplify the methylmercury by
as much as seven orders of magni-
tude (107), which has been
observed directly in south Florida.
There is no analysis in the Siting
Application of this potential bioac-
cumulation risk. Furthermore, it is
documented that emissions of the
reactive forms of mercury (a.k.a.,
Reactive Gaseous Mercury (RGM))
tend to deposit as a local-scale phe-
nomenon. The propensity of RGM
to rapidly deposit from the atmos-
phere by wet or dry processes
results in accentuation of mercury
deposition on a local scale, i.e. gen-
erally within 100 km of the sources,
even those sources with tall stacks.
As the area of influence of FGPP
will overlap portions of the Ever-
glades Protection Area and other
locations of natural resource value,
such as the Fisheating Creek,
Kissimmee Prairie, it is of special
concern to the Department. Bioac-
cumulation processes proceed
very efficiently in large portions of
Everglades and other marshlands,
making them especially vulnerable
to methylmercury bioaccumula-
tion and risk to fish eating persons
and wildlife. Prevailing winds at the
site are from the southeast, toward
the Fisheating Creek Wildlife Man-
agement Area and the Lake Wales
Ridge natural areas, host to a singu-
larly important wintering ground
for swallow-tailed kites, which
though not presently deemed
endangered, are certainly a species
of concern and vulnerable to mer-
cury risk.
Although Glades County provid-
ed a parade of experts in its Febru-
ary 20, 2007 meeting to proclaim
the benefits and safety of the FGPP,
these were experts paid to speak by
Glades County and FPL in support-
ing this project. Unfortunately, all
but 2 of these speakers admitted
they had previous financial ties to

FPL. In contrast, Dr. Atkeson's con-
cerns about FGPP are from an
unbiased government expert
whose only job is to protect us, as
he is not being paid to further the
interests of either FPL or the county
government.
I have no doubt that Becky
Hendry and many others in Glades
County naively believe what they
are being told by FPL and county
officials about FGPP's safety. And I
know that there are lots of angry
feelings being directed against peo-
ple who are trying to stop FGPP,
including against me and many
other current leaders of Save Our
Creeks. But Save Our Creeks is
doing exactly what it is supposed to
be doing in trying to protect
Fisheating Creek and other endan-
gered Florida waterways. In inter-
preting the complex facts related to
FGPP, Glades County citizens
should carefully weigh the evi-
dence, including the credibility of
all sources of evidence, and not be
swayed by the large dollars being
promised by FPL, since this money
will have absolutely no value if we
turn our beautiful county into a
wasteland and both our people
and wildlife suffer from harm. As all
this will be sorted out in various
government reviews and court
cases, I hope those who disagree
with Save Our Creeks' stance
against FGPP can agree to amica-
bly disagree, since it is best if we
can disagree without becoming
disagreeable. However, when this
project turns out to be seen as
clearly harmful, as I am confident it
will, the county officials who have
been willing to compromise on this
important environmental and
health issue merely to gain addi-
tional sources of revenue should

hear a clear message from voters
that selling out is not what we
expect from those we elect.
Last, I do want to mention that
this is just one issue among many
with which Save Our Creeks is
involved. For example, it is attempt-
ing to get the state to open the
entire length of the creek for kayak-
ing and canoeing to increase eco-
tourism in the county; this opening
of tte creek is mandated in the set-
tlement,,agrement but has ot
been enforced. Save Our Creeks is
also looking forward to soon
receiving a $322,000 grant from the
state to restore the Cypress Knee
Museum, which will be turned into
an environmental museum
focused on the ecological impor-
tance of Fisheating Creek. These
sorts of endeavors are efforts to
bring dean ecotourism dollars into
Glades County, in contrast to FGPP,
which surely will only bring the
worst sort of pollution that will con-
tribute to spoiling everything good
we have here. Anyone interested in
joining Save Our Creeks is wel-
come to come to our annual meet-
ing at 10 am on Saturday, June 30,
at the Fisheating Creek camp-
ground. Canoes and kayaks will be
available after the meeting to
explore the creek at the time of the
year when it is usually at its greatest
beauty. And I hope Save Our
Creeks' efforts to stop FGPP will
enable Fisheating Creek to remain
one of the most beautiful and pris-
tine places on earth.

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
MUSE West Glades School
Monday honored seventh and
eighth grade students, who were
among the first to attend the
school and will be the first to
leave.
The Seventh and Eighth Grade
Awards and gala buffet reception
was held May 21 in the cafetorium
at the school, honoring the 37 stu-
dents who first came to West
Glades in the school year of 2004-
05 as sixth-graders.
The program honored all
eighth graders and at the same
time recognized seventh graders
who will exit the next school year.
Each student was presented
with a choice of the group photo-
graph he or she wanted.
The Glades County School
Board, administrators, teachers,
parents, family members, stu-
dents and friends gathered
together to celebrate the three
years that they have all worked
together to expand Glades
schools into the westernmost
area of Glades County.
Three years ago these students
came together from five different
schools to blend into a group that
led West Glades from strictly an
elementary school to become a
modern Kindergarten through
Eighth-grade community school.
During these three years, the
students have gathered supplies
to send to hurricane victims,


which amounted to 1,000 items,
donated food to local families,
corresponded with local veterans
deployed to Iraq, explored the
Caloosahatchee, memorialized
the Holocaust victims, and partici-
pated in a Science Fair. .
Poetry Alive energized their
writing and Core Ensemble
inspired their musical spirits.
These students also traveled
together from the Dolly Hand
Theatre in Belle Glade, Ramond's
Rollerink in Ft. Myers, and Disney
Quest in Orlando. The outing to
Busch Gardens in Tampa marked
their finale trip.
Perhaps the most touching
project of goodwill that these stu-
dents brought about was nothing
more nor less than a car wash
that netted $500. However, it was
this $500 that purchased a sheep
which was sent to a third world
country as a token of love and
hope for young people who are
so desperately in need.
Using the latest in technology
to explore new vistas and many
hours of old-fashioned hard work
in reading, math, science and
social studies, this group of stu-
dents has proven that young peo-
ple from rural areas can shine in
the academic arena.
They have enjoyed delving into
the world of art and music and
some seventh and eighth graders
have become accomplished in
band under the leadership of
Dean Paul.
Principal Larry Russell Luckey,


team leader Tom Gaskins and
teachers Doreen Backes, Debra
Davis, Alice Gardner, Bill Marchal,
Bonnie Marchal, Dean Paul, Jean-
nie Pearson, Chad Pio and Tina
Wills all agree that these students
will look back with great fondness
and satisfaction on their years
together.
The outstanding students of
the year for the Eighth-grade are
Jarod Brown and Larisa Rivera.
The Seventh-grade students of the
year are Sandra Cervantes and
Ryan Howard.
The students who received
subject awards are Sandra Cer-
vantes and Alayna Ridgdill. Lan-
guage arts awards went to Ivette
DeSantiago and Beatriz Jimenez.
Math awards were received by
Steven Sodrell and Larisa Rivera.
Science awards went to Kelsey
Cowin and Ebony Yarger and
finally social studies awards to
Allison Aldrich and Jarod Brown.
Other areas honored were
most improved students, in vari-
ous subject areas, outstanding
attendance, high achieving math,
reading and writing students.
It was a banner year for West
Glades.
Alice Gardner and Tom Gask-
ins were the class sponsors for the
entire three years. Both sponsors
were high in their praise of the
many exceptional remarks made
about the students for their good
manner and positive attitude dur-
ing all the trips made during this
time.

MOORE HAVEN On May 20,
the Moore Haven Junior-Senior
High School (MHHS) had their Bac-
calaureate at Saint Joseph's
Catholic Church in Moore Haven.
Everyone stood to welcome the
class of 2007's processional. The
Invocation was by Ronnesia Myers
and Chantell Morris welcomed
family and guests.
The Baccalaureate message
was delivered by Jonathan Bulling-
ton, Rachel Bullington, and Jeri
Wilson.
Mr. Bullington sang "Jesus your
love is extravagant" and read scrip-
ture which encouraged the students
not to let other people look down
on them because they areyoung.
Mrs. Bullington told about her
life experience having bone cancer,
going thru chemotherapy which
meant she was away from her son
and husband for over a year. She
said she had a 70% of making it out
of surgery to amputate her leg, but
that she and her husband never
ceased to pray and seek God for his
love and mercy. She prays that this
nation will become a nation that is
not self centered and that everyone
will seek to serve Christ and help
others.
.Mrs. Wilson said that our
dreams come from God who creat-
ed us and will lead us. She told a
story about how her husband and
son rodeo all over the nation and
how God would use them to tell
others about him. Mr. Ansel Bell
thanked the guests. Miss Adela
Cano invited everyone to Senior
Night and graduation on Friday
May 25 at 7 p.m. on the Terrier foot-

lowing Scouts were honored as
they became Webelos, David

The third suspect, name with-

intended victims, detectives said,
by soliciting prostitution and offer-
ing a striptease act as a cover for
the crime. The woman is alleged to
have given a signal for Herbert
Baker to enter the home. Her hand-
bag contained numerous nylon
cable ties which detectives believe
were to be used to bind victims'

agreed that the Mamie Langdale
Bridge could be a focal point for
attracting travelers because so
many of them comment on what
a beautiful bridge it is, and since
the landscape around Moore

Continued From Page 1
ish-American War, World Wars I
and II and the Korean War, as well
as all other conflicts since then.
Memorial Day is a legal holiday
in most states. Prior to 1971, North-
ern States celebrated May 30 as
Memorial Day while most South-
ern States chose their own days.
Now, however, as a result of the
National Holiday Act passed by
Congress in 1971, Federal law


states that Memorial Day is desig-
nated as the last Monday in May.
Since the end of World War I,
Memorial Day has been Poppy Day.
Ex-servicemen, their families
and friends, sell small, red artifi-
cial poppies to help disabled vet-
erans. In recent years, the custom
has grown to include decorating
the graves of loved ones on
Memorial Day.
The speaker at this year's serv-
ice will be Dr. Luther W Oehlbeck,
a World War II veteran who served
in the Central Pacific theatre in a
unit of the Fifth Amphibian Force


beachmasters during the battle for
Iwo Jima. His unit was later award-
ed the Naval Unit Commendation.
Dr. Oehlbeck has lived in Muse
since 1988, having moved from
North Carolina to Lee County in
1975. He has been retired from his
medical practice of pathology since
the mid 1980s.
As has been the tradition in
Glades County for several years,
Larry Russell Luckey will sing The
Star Spangled Banner and America.
Commander Butch Jones will
Emcee the program.

Christine Zavalza was the catering
manager for the evening. All of the

PAL youth programs to begin in June


Soccer and dance
programs to be
offered free of charge

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PAHOKEE The Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office Police Ath-
letic League (PAL) is putting togeth-
er two sports programs for Paho-
kee's young children, starting next
month. Currently, there are no PAL
youth programs in Pahokee.
According to Tammy Bunting,
one of the organizers of the soccer
league, the first of the programs is
the PAL Youth Soccer League. With
the number of Hispanics in the area
growing, having a sport other than
football in the city should draw
plenty of participants, organizers
hope.
The soccer program is aimed at
engaging boys and girls, ranging
from the ages of eight to 16 years
old, Ms. Bunting said. The program
will begin in June.
Registration and participation
for the program is free and organiz-
ers encourage all those interested
to participate. Also, all soccer


equipment will be supplied to the
participants free of charge, accord-
ing to Ms. Bunting.
In the meantime, the program is
looking for coaches and volunteers
to help the program to a good start.
All volunteers must first pass a
background check.
Ms. Bunting said applications
will be accepted for prospective
players and coaches until May 30.
She is shooting to have at least two
teams in Pahokee so a league can
be formed by the time the registra-
tion deadline has passed.
"We're hoping to get enough
teams so we could have an inter-
city competition," said Ms.
Bunting. "Hopefully down the
stretch, we could expand to com-
pete against other soccer teams
throughout Palm Beach County."
Ms. Bunting said that the PAL
program is sponsoring the sport
primarily because it would serve as
a positive, supervised outlet for the
youth to exert their energy.
"Appropriate sportsmanship,
social skills, teamwork, discipline
and a good physical exercise will
be of great benefit to the children
who participate in the PAL soccer
program," said Ms. Bunting.
Ms. Bunting said she hopes the


PAL program will extend to the
2007-2008 school year and
beyond, with other sports such as
boxing, wrestling, flag football, tee-
ball, softball, baseball and volley-
ball to be available in the future.
The second program is a dance
program which will be headed by
Deputy Duplantis.
According to Deputy Duplantis,
the dance program will be offered
to girls age six through 16. She said
the program will teach the girls eti-
quette, interview skills, dealing
with goals and objectives in life and
much more.
Deputy Duplantis said profes-
sional dancers will be coming to
the Pahokee Recreational Center
gymnasium to teach the girls
dances, featuring a combination of
jazz, hip-hop and stepping.
"I want the kids to know that
this will be a fun and rewarding
experience," said Deputy Duplan-
tis.
With practices to begin June 6,
Deputy Duplantis said she hopes
that the dance team will be ready
to perform in various venues
throughout the summer.
"I would love to have the girls
perform for the citizens of the area
to give them a sense of pride and


belonging," said Deputy Duplantis.
She said she would like to have
volunteers to help with the upcom-
ing dance program. She added that
if the program is successful, it
would extend through the 2007-
2008 school year.
Deputy Sheriff Johnny Jackson,
the Glades area coordinator of the
PAL, said that the purpose of the
program is to get the youth off the
streets and to encourage them to
participate in positive activities in a
supervised setting.
Deputy Jackson hopes boxing
and wrestling will come to the area
during the summer, with the target
group being boys from seven to 12
years old. The dates are yet to be
determined.
"The sports programs give the
children something to do that they
like constructively in a positive set-
ting," said Deputy Jackson. "They
should be able to have fun with the
activities we provide them with."
For more information, please
call Tammy Bunting at 924-3565 or
Deputy Sheriff Johnny Jackson at
329-8280.

Thursday, May 24, 2007 Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


'Doc' and Carol Glassburn still going strong


"Doc" and Carol Glassburn
came to Okeechobee in 1952. On
April 23 of this year they celebrated
75 years of marriage. Three-quar-
ters of a century is quite remark-
able.
"I remember everything about
that day walking to the court-
house, up along the side of the
building to buy the license," smiled
Doc. "When we came out with the
license in my hand, there was a
man standing there who said, 'I
can do that for you, come on.'
"We followed him across the
street and up stairs in the building
there to his office and he married
us.
"Back then in Indiana, after you
got married, people would say they
were coming to "bell" you. That
meant the people, would come
and you would go to the store and
buy treats to serve them. Well, I
went to Rolly Ricker's store and
told him I had just got married and
I only had 50 cents left in my pock-
et but he said, 'I'll take care of it;
you pay me back when you can.'
Can you believe someone trusting
you like that today?" asked Doc.
Doc's Auto has been a fixture in
Okeechobee since it was opened
by Doc Glassburn and his wife
Carol in 1962. Now their son Kim
runs the business, but Doc and
Carol are still going strong in Okee-
chobee.
"We came to Florida in 1946
from Kokomo, Indiana," said Doc.
"That year we stayed at Pioneer
Park in Fort Pierce. I worked for the
Oldsmobile dealer there. I was
their service manager and R.J.
Cathcart was my boss
"But we got homesick and
went back a year later," chimed in
Carol.

Submitted photo/Doc and Carol Glassburn
Doc and Carol Glassburn founded Doc's Auto Service in
1962. It is still operated by their son, Kim in the same build-
ing at N.W. Ninth Avenue and U.S. 441. This photo of the sta-
tion was taken in 1964.


But they came back the next
year and stayed for good.
"We stayed at Pitchford Auto
Camp in Jenser Beach at first,"
said Carol. "Tell how they came to
let us stay there, because they did-
n't allow children."
Glassburns have two daugh-
ters; at that time, they were 9 and
12 years old.
"It was because of Cliff Pull-
man," said Doc. "He was a friend
of ours who lived there at the
camp. He went to Pitchford and
said the girls were well-behaved.
We stayed there until we moved to
Okeechobee in 1952."
"We went to meeting in Fort
Lauderdale one time, and while I
was there, I went out onto a bal-
cony and ran into a man named
Gerald Leatherman, who was
Gilbert's right-hand man.
("Gilbert" refers to Gilbert Cul-
breth, Sr. of Okeechobee who
founded Gilbert Chevrolet in 1933

and also owned the Gilbert Theater
which used to be on Park Street
until the building was torn down in
1970.) We talked and he asked me
to come to Okeechobee and run
their service department which I
did in October of 1952."
Gilbert Chevrolet was in a red
brick building on Park Street -
where they have cars painted on
the side of the building now.
"We lived out west on Park
Street just across the old railroad


McCarthy scholarship awarded
Clewiston Lions Club President Tuesday Tritt, right, awards $8,000 scholarship to Clewiston High School senior David
Fountain, accompanied by his mother Ginnie Fountain, at Class Night last Tuesday. The scholarship is awarded annual-
ly to a Hendry County student with either vision or hearing impairments.


New surgical services at Hendry Regional


CLEWISTON Dr. Leonard
Carroll came to Hendry Regional
Medical Center with a mission -
to provide a board-certified sur-
geon to the underserved area of
Hendry County. Before moving to
Clewiston, Dr. Carroll, the hospi-
tal's new surgeon, had been
working as a general surgeon in
Jamestown, Tennessee for the
past twenty years.
Although word is getting out
about this experienced and per-
sonable surgeon at HRMC, many


in our community are still
unaware that they may have their
surgeries, right here at home. Dr.
Carroll joined the medical staff of
the hospital on February 1 of this
year. Since that date, he has per-
formed hundreds of surgical pro-
cedures. Among them are laparo-
scopic surgeries. Laparoscopic
surgery, also called minimally
invasive surgery or band-aid sur-
gery, is a modern surgical tech-
nique in which operations in the
abdomen are performed through


small incisions,
as compared
to larger inci-
sions needed
in traditional 1..
surgical proce-
dures. Of these
many types of
procedures, Dr.
Carroll per-
forms laparo- Leonard
scopic removal Carroll, M.D.
of the gall blad-
der and appendix, hernia repairs


and tubal ligations. He also does
hemorrhoid surgeries, hysterec-
tomies and other gynecologic sur-
geries. In addition, Dr. Carroll per-
forms endoscopic operations
such as gastroscopy and
colonoscopy. (Endoscopy means
'looking inside' and typically
refers to looking inside the
human body for medical reasons
using an instrument called an
endoscope).

tracks, west of a two-story apart-
ment building," said Carol.
"Our son, Kim was born here,
in 1955, 17 years after his youngest
sister.
That was funny, because my
daughter was expecting at the
same time. We had our babies
together 17 days apart," said
Carol.
"Kim was born in a hospital,
but my daughters were born at
home."
The girls were born in Indiana
in 1932 and 1938 and, as the story
went, while the doctor was at the
house, waiting for Carol to give
birth, he and Doc sat around he
playing the banjo and Doc plying
his harmonica.
"Then we moved out to Buck-
head Ridge in 1962. At that time
there were only five houses there.
When you went down first street,
you had to turn around and go
back; there was no bridge across
the canal," Carol said.
"Originally, they had a stuffed
buck in a glass case up over the
entrance road and you'd drive
under to go in," said Doc. "It was
quite a show!" he laughed.
"When we lived in Buckhead
Ridge there was a wooden bridge
over the Kissimmee River there at
S.R.70 and it stayed until they fin-
ished that part of the dike around
1968,"said Carol.
"We opened Doc's Auto Ser-
vice in 1963, right where it is now at
Ninth Avenue and U.S. 441 and we
bought our gasoline from Ted Bass
as Price Oil Company when we
first opened up. We had it when it
was a state inspection station I
think that was for about 17 years,"
recalled Doc.
Doc retired in 1982.

Learning the real truth


- not being self-centered


By Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Listening to TV as I was get-
ting ready to come to the office, I
learned that chocolate can be
good for you. I have a vivid mem-
ory of a visit to the dentist around
age fifteen, after a hiatus of not
going for awhile.
His first words when he
looked into my mouth were
"Boy, you've been eating can-
dies." Following from the Satur-
day morning encounters we
made and the visceral memories
that still linger, I swore off of can-
dies for years. If he had said
"you've been eating sweets" I
imagine my body-mass-index
would approximate a more nor-
mal figure these days. Now I hear
that chocolate is good for you.
Not all chocolates, not those
made with palm oils, not those
made with a lot of fattening milk
substances, not the lighter
chocolates but the darker ones
not made with fatty oils.


The immutable truth of years
gone by; "chocolates are bad for
you" has been overturned. Am I
unhappy
about this
reversal? Not
at all! There -.-
are still the .
immutable
truths; too
much of any-
thing is not
good for you,
the newly Rev.Samuel
revealed S.Tho
chocolate
truth has some conditions placed
on it and we cannot be indis-
criminate in this new-found
source of enjoyment. Some
kinds are certainly better than
others and you have to be aware
of the ingredients before you cat-
egorically say "It's good." I don't
expect to sit around for the great
minds of the world to decide one
day in the future that we are
wrong; chocolate is bad for us
after all.
We're moving with precision


to find a new understanding and
have opened the door to new
possibilities about an old "truth."
That door will not likely be ever
closed again. I have had some-
one insist that this is the only
planet with people on it. To me,
that simply does not follow.
Obviously, to date we have not
discovered any planets with life
like ours on them that's the
truth. Then, the other day, there
was a discovery of a planet that
has the potential for life like ours.
Among the millions of stars out
there, there is a high likelihood
that one will be found (probably
many will be found) with life like
ours. I believe that God will care
about them too. My visitor who
felt the truth of the matter was
that this is the only place God
created or visited seems to be on
weaker ground as we discover
new "truths" that differ from old
ones. It seems to fly in the face of
what he feels he has learned
from the Bible or in church or
about the days of creation. It is if
what he has read or heard wasn't


true, or that God changes His
mind. There is a healing of a
Canaanite daughter in Matthew
(15:21ff). Her mother asks the
Lord to heal her daughter's
"demon possession." He
reminded her that he was sent,
only, to the lost sheep of Israel
but she insists. Jesus changes His
mind!
He grants her request in spite
of her being outside of His min-
istry that day. Again, there is a
Syrophoenician woman in Mark
(7:24ff) who asks for a healing,
and Jesus changes His mind.
Jesus asks the father of a body
who is "possessed by a spirit that
has robbed him of speech (Mark
9:17ff) "How long has he been
like this? (v.21)." Someone could
be shocked with the idea that
Jesus would have to ask ques-
tions and might not have known
everything! My thought is "Why
not?" Jesus got an answer,
moved on, the boy was healed;
that's the "truth" of the matter. I
have come to think there is a cer-
tain self-centeredness in believ-


Remember the four important 'F's'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Although we never want to
see our children come home
with an "F" on their report card,
there are some "F's" that are
good.
As we think of being the best
Christians we can be, let us con-
sider the importance of the four
following things that begin with
"F":
(1) FIRM in the faith. One's


faith is foundational to all his/her
Christian life it is that to which
we add the virtues of the Christ-
ian life (II Peter 1:5-7). And Acts
16:5 speaks of being established
in the faith. We are not to be
tossed to and fro by various
winds of doctrine (Eph. 4:14).
(2) FAITHFUL in life. Just
believing right is not enough -
one must live according to the
will of God (I Tim. 5:7). We are to
walk worthy of our Christian call-
ing (Eph. 4:1). As people look at


us, they should see that the light
of Christ is shining from us in the
good works we are producing
(Matt. 5:16).
(3) FERVENT in spirit. A Chris-
tian is one who was formerly
dead but is now alive to God
(Rom. 6:11). He/she is to be on
fire for God not dead, not life-
less, not cold, not lukewarm.
He/she is to be fervent in spirit as
he/she serves the Lord (Rom.
12:11). This fervency will show
forth in his/her prayers (James


5:16), in his/her zeal for good
works (Titus 2:14), and in every
aspect of the Christian life.
(4) FRUITFUL in service. A
Christian who is steadfast,
immoveable, and abounding
always in the work of the Lord
will find his/her labor is not in
vain in the Lord (I Cor: 15:58).
Jesus promises that if we abide
in Him, we will be fruitful
branches (John 15:5).
Let us be ALL 4!


Take time to celebrate our unsung heroes


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Three women were talking. The
first said, "Sometimes I go to the
refrigerator and forget what I need
by the time I get there."
The second woman said,
"When I go upstairs, I can't remem-
ber whether I'm going up for some-
thing or I'm on my way back
down."
The third woman said, "I'm
lucky, I guess I don't have that prob-
lem (knocking on wood). Oh,
there's someone at the door."
Memory is a tricky thing. There
are some things, however, that we
should never forget. One of these is
the sacrifices that others have made
in our behalf.
As Christians, we remember


that God so loved us that He gave us
His only Son,
that whoever
believes in Him
should not per-
ish, but have
everlasting life.
But God has
also blessed our
lives with indi-
viduals who
have crossed
our paths and
have had an Hicks
impact on who
we are and what we have become.
You and I do not have what we
have today by our own efforts
alone. There is no greater myth
than that of the self-made man or
woman. From the moment we
come into this world through our
current daily schedules, people


influence our lives. Some we are
aware of and some we might not
be.
Clewistonian, Brad Crooks was
a State Trooper who was killed in
the line of duty. In his memory,
Brad's family presents a scholar-
ship each year to a Clewiston High
School Band member who lives up
to the qualities of an unsung hero.
Philip Thomas grew up in
Clewiston and had a heart for serv-
ice. Philip was scheduled to go into
the Peace Corps when an accident
took his life. Each year, Philip's fam-
ily gives a scholarship to a special
student who excels in service
above self.
These are just a few of the many
out there that have touched lives
and continue to touch lives today.
To the families of all of the Brad
Crooks and Philip Thomases out


there, we thank you for your loved
one! Bless you for keeping their
legacy alive. We may not have
known your loved one, personally,
or even know their name, but we
do recognize their footprints in our
lives and in our world. Because of
the lives these special heroes lived,
lives have been changed and will
continue to be changed in the years
ahead. These changed lives expo-
nentially change more lives. God is
glorified.
For those heroes who are still
with us, we thank God for all you
are and do. We know you don't
always get the recognition you
deserve, but we thank you for help-
ing make our lives more meaning-
ful. May God bless you as you con-
tinue to bless others.

.CLEWISTON Congratula-
tions to Pastor Gary Corley who
was voted in as the new Senior Pas-
tor of Evangel Assembly of God on
Wednesday, April 11.

change, or that we can forget

LAKEPORT WATER ASSOCIATION INC
IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
The LakePort Water Association Water Treatment System has
a level of total Trlhalomethanes which exceeds standards
SITUATION:
The Department of Environmental Protection requires disinfection of drinking water
to inactivate possible pathogens, because the health benefits of disinfection far
outweigh its risks. However, when used in the treatment of drinking water, some
disinfectants combine with organic and inorganic matter present in the waterto
form chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBP'S). A number of DBP's such
as Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA's) may be a
health concern at certain levels of exposure.
The laboratory analysis results forthe TTHM sample collected in April2007, Janu-
ary 2007, November 2006, and July 2006, now indicate a running annual average
TTHM concentration of 85.1 micrograms per liter (ug/L). Therefore, The depart-
ment has determined that this water system has generated a Maximum contami-
nant Level (MC) violation tor TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida
administrative (F.A.C.), identifies the MCL forTTHM's as 80 (uoL).
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes inecess of the Maxi-
mum Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased risk of
getting cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMER 00?
This is not and immediate risk, however, untilthe problem is corrected, any custom-
ers who are concerned about their exposure to TTHm's may wish to use altema-
tive sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water
treated by an appropriate home water treatment devise. Appropriate home water
treatment devices are those certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF)
for reducing TTHM's in dnnking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treat-
ment plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is expected to be complet-
ed in late 2007.

Glades Central teacher joins Governor in education chat


On Tuesday, May 8, Gov.
Charlie Crist hosted Tallahassee
Tuesday. The Governor uses
Tuesday to meet with various
groups of Floridians from
around the state. He used this
Tuesday to meet with 12 teach-
ers from around the state to dis-
cuss educational concerns. Ms.
Rachel Peregoy of Glades Cen-
tral Community High School
was selected to attend the Gov-
ernor's mansion for a living
room chat.
Ms. Peregoy spoke to the Gov-
ernor about the high transfer
rate at low performing schools.
Glades Central has had six prin-
cipals in ten years and a large
percentage of the teaching staff
transfers every year. She feels
that there need to be incentives
to remain at a low-performing
school and not just large bonus-
es for signing on. She also feels
that low performing school
should be required to limit the
number of beginning teachers
they hire.
"I think the discussion was
helpful in bringing some atten-
tion to schools struggling to
meet state standards." Governor
