Lake muck removal begins


Low water level helps
heavy equipment
excavation

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
LAKEPORT -One of the
worst droughts in Florida history
has lowered Lake Okeechobee
water levels to a near record low
of 9.23 feet. While these dire con-
ditions have changed life for
many Glades area residents, it is
an opportunity to remove phos-


phorous-laden sediment from
the dried lake bed. The exposed
muck will be easier to scrape
away.
This month South Florida
Water Management District Gov-
erning Board released $11 mil-
lion in emergency funds to speed
up Lake Okeechobee restora-
tion. On May 24, front-end load-
ers and dump trucks began exca-
vating the exposed lake bottom
at Fisheating Bay and Harney
Pond Canal Recreation Area.
They are two of the six proposed
removal sites on the western
shore.


The removal work on Fisheat-
ing Bay is handled by the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict and involves 800 acres of
exposed lake bed, costing a little
more the $1 million. Within three
months the district expects to
scrape and haul away more than
27,000 truckloads.
The muck is mostly decayed
vegetation, and it has built up
over many years. It has ruined
fish spawning sites, suffocated
beneficial aquatic plants,
degraded water clarity and has

INI/Nena Bolan
South Florida Water Management District has released $11
million in emergency funds to aid in restoration of Lake
Okeechobee. Dry sediment will be removed to improve fish
spawning and. reduce phosphorus pollution. This site is at
Fisheating Bay near Lakeport in Glades County.

Glades County is losing one of
its most beloved and dedicat-

Evelyn Sapp, Postmistress.
of the Palmdale Post Office for
the past twenty years is retir-

She has been fondly

"Well," she says in her soft
southern voice, "it's time for
me to walk in another direc-
tion. I've enjoyed this work
and loved seeing my friends
come in year after year and
hearing about their growing
families and all the things
going on in the community.
But now, I'm looking forward
to a little less structured life
which happily will include
more time to spend with my
grandchildren three that is,

Is Tallahassee
listening?

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Flori-
da Legislature will hold a special
session June 12 22 to determine
how best to lower property taxes.
The Florida House of Repre-
sentatives has suggested cutting
taxes back to 2001, or 2003; and
Governor Charlie Crist is deter-
mined to reduce taxes.
Locally, leaders are saying,
proposed cuts could reduce
Glades County's budget by as
much as 46 percent.
The Glades County Board of


County Commissioners called for
a public workshop on May 21 so
residents could voice opinions
and ask questions about the pos-
sible loss in county services. If the
county has 46 percent less for a
budget, many services will be cut
in half and some eliminated.
"It is going to hit us dispro-
portionably hard. We have a no
frills government here," said
Paul Beck, commissioner.
The county's two ambu-
lances cover 775 square miles of
rural communities, farms and
recreational areas that draw
commuters and visitors from all
over the state who use U.S. 27 as
a main highway. The county's

work and is the apex of school
events right before graduation
night.
"You guys are awesome. I

Engagements


We really don't love all those lovebugs


By MaryAnn Morris


suDminea pnoro
Jaclyne Marie Lundy and Kenneth Dwayne Pollard


Lundy Pollard
Judge and Mrs. Jack Lundy of
Moore Haven are pleased to
announce the engagement of
their daughter, Jaclyne Marie
Lundy to Mr. Kenneth Dwayne
Pollard of Lake Placid.
The bride to be is a graduate of
Moore Haven High School. She
received a bachelor's degree in
political science and economics
from Florida State University in
2005. She is currently employed
with the Glades County School


District. She will be working with
Florida Power and Light following
the wedding.
The parents of the groom, Mr.
and Mrs. Kenneth Pollard reside in
Lake Placid where the groom-to-
be is a graduate of Lake Placid
High School and attended Hunt-
ington College in Alabama on a
football scholarship. Dwayne is
currently employed by Mid-Flori-
da Fabrications.
The wedding is set for June 16,
2007 at First United Methodist
Church of Moore Haven.


The slow-moving, squishey
lovebug, often attached to a mate,
is familiar to most people in the
southern United States as what is
splattered all over their cars in the
spring and early fall.
An transplanted species from
Central America, today the love-
bug which is harmless to
humans is found throughout
Florida. Like cute little migratory
birds, lovebugs signal changes in
the seasons from spring to sum-
mer and again from summer to
fall. Moreover, if they were larger,
people could easily see and
admire their delicate features,
particularly the big round eyes of
the males. Wilhelm Rudolph
Wiedemann named the genus
Plecia for the lovebug and its rela-
tives in 1828, so his concept for
the term may never be known.
Generally, most people react
with an "Eeewww!" or a "Yuck!"
when they come into contact
with the black clouds of lovebugs.
Lovebugs like decaying leaves,
manure and such. They will lay
their eggs there. When the eggs
hatch, "Voila!" more lovebugs,
since they don't fly very well, they
don't fly very far from where they
hatch.
Lovebugs do not bite, sting or
transmit diseases and are not poi-
sonous. They are only active in
the daylight and are much less
mobile during the early and late
daytime hours. Typically, the pairs
fly across the wind and are blown
against obstacles, especially your
car or truck as you tool down the
highway at high speeds.


I


pletely block the windshield and
etch automobile paint if they are
left to bake on to the surface.
Solutions
Within about twenty minutes
after a lovebug-filled drive, wash
your car with water for about five
minutes and then scrub it to
remove most of the lovebugs
without harm to automobile
paint. A hood air deflector or
screen will reduce the number of


spattered lovebugs on your car.
Pesticides
Chemical controls are ineffec-
tive. There are too many love-
bugs.

Pet Corner


Question: Dear Doc Savvy. My
dog Sadie has the most awful
nails to cut. Her nail beds are so
long, there is very little to trim.
She has claws that are nearly
three (3) inches long! Is there a
way to re-train or shorten the
nail beds so she can have short-
er more manageable nails?
Thanks Doc, Jenny in Clewis-
ton.
Answer: Hey Jenny! Yours is


not an uncom-
mon question.
How about
considering a
"Show Nail
Trim"?
Show nail
trims are
when you gen-
tly sedate you Doc
dog and use a
Dremel tool to Sawy


cut the nails short below the nail
bed line. This will teach the nail
bed to start over at a shorter
level. It can stay that way as long
as you do routine nail clipping
on a monthly basis.
When you use the Dremel
properly, it very perfectly short-
ens the nails and stops any
bleeding in the process. Antibi-
otics are sometimes used to pre-
vent infection. Also this is a great


opportunity to clean ears,
express glands, clean teeth,
groom and bath. Ask your veteri-
narian about it! We do it all the
time at my office.
Take care Jenny, Doc Savvy.

Thursday, May 31, 2007-


A fan can be used outside near
work or recreational areas to
keep lovebugs away.
Lovebugs cannot be con-
trolled effectively with poisons or
repellents. There are simply too
many of them.
Origins
Contrary to urban myth, this
insect was not introduced to the
state by the University of Florida.
Over the course of the20th centu-
ry, lovebugs migrated from Cen-
tral America, where their habitat
was being reduced by logging.
Over a course of many years and
many generations of lovebugs,
they traveled through Texas and
Louisiana and into Florida.
Attractants
Lovebugs are attracted to
diesel and gasoline exhaust
fumes. Hot engines and the vibra-
tions of automobiles seem to
attract them to highways.
Active times
Love bugs are usually active
between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m., in
temperatures above 84 degrees
Farenheit.
Mating season
Each generation of lovebugs
lasts about four weeks in May and
September. Typically there are
two main generations during this
time. But the insects may be seen
throughout the summer.
Problems
Large numbers of lovebugs
can cause overheating of liquid-
cooled engines, cloud or com-

Drought equals worst on record, experts worried


Lake Okeechobee
reaches lowest
recorded water level

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
.Independent Newspapers
LAKE OKEECHOBEE Water
managers continued to express
concern as Lake Okeechobee's
water levels sank to levels equal to
the worst drought the body of
water has ever seen.
SThe uncertain part is that there
doesn't seem to be much relief in
:sight and water management offi-
cials say Phase IV restrictions may
be around the corner.
Even as residents around the
lake and much farther, including
the coastal communities of Palm
Beach County, are forced to cut
back their water use by severe
measures, the signs of any relief
approaching quickly seem distant.
Unless an extraordinary weath-
er phenomenon occurs, and if the
drought conditions persist, the lake
level is expected to continue gradu-
ally decreasing, perhaps far out-
pacing the 2001 record level.
"This is obviously putting us in
one of the most severe situations

relief to the waning lake levels.
Cities as high up along the
state as Ft. Pierce, down to the
Florida Keys, and cities from both
the eastern and western coasts
are under water shortage rules as
the state looks to recover from

temporary crisis.
Around the lake, fishermen and
others note the continually sinking

taken to fishing in outreaching
canals where the waters are higher,
and some boaters expected to wait
out the drought before risking tak-
ing their boats out on the lake and
running ashore on some of the
higher points throughout the lake.

in Brighton on the northern end of
the lake.
Even with an above-average
rainfall season, experts say it is
uncertain if the area will not con-

tions. In any event, the water
management district isn't
expecting to see 'an end to the
problem soon.
"It took a solid 18 months in
the making a wet season last
year that did not materialize it
was a long process," said Mr.
Smith. "It will be an equally long,
arduous process to re-bounce."
Part of that "re-bounce,"

Man killed in Memorial Day accident


Motorcyclist
hit a cable
across a dirt road

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
PALM BEACH COUNTY A
45-year-old man was killed in a
motorcycle accident on a dirt
xoad near Belle Glade Monday.


According to a press release
provided by the Florida Highway
Patrol, the driver, Kumbukkage
Tissa Wimsalasekera, of Boca
Raton, was traveling south-
bound on a private property,
about a mile and a half north of
State Road 700, at about 1:45
p.m. when the accident
occurred.
The motorcyclist is believed
to have been traveling at about


45 miles per hour.
A witness attempted to warn
the driver of the cable suspend-
ed across the dirt road, but was
unsuccessful.
The motorcyclist apparently
did not observe the cable until
the last moment, when he
attempted to lay the bike on its
side to avoid hitting the line,
according to the press release.
But it was too late.


The man on the motorcycle
hit the cable with his bike and
was violently ejected from the
motorcycle.
When emergency workers
arrived, the victim was pro-
nounced dead at the scene,
according to investigators.
According to officials, the vic-
tim was wearing a helmet when
he crashed against the line.

Forestry says wildfire season 'not typical'


SFT. MYERS This year has
not been typical for wildfires
that is and year to date there
have been 188 wildfires 167 of
those have been in the last three
months burning more than
:35,104 acres, the most in 26
years.
Typically, wildfires average
about 333 every year with acres
lost averaging 15,000.
Historically, April, May and
June are the busiest months.
June is the month we typically
run the most fires most light-
ning caused and we expect this
year will be no different given
the lack of district wide rainfall.
Lack of rain has been the
biggest factor fuels (dry grass,
weeds and trees) have been
extremely dry. These dry fuels
combined with high winds and
low humidity have created per-
fect conditions for wildfires to
ignite easily, become intense
.quickly, and spread rapidly.
Even when we have
received rain, it has not been
widespread. Some areas have
received rainfall measuring in


the inches while other areas
barely received a trace. Both Col-
lier and Lee Counties still have a
significant rainfall deficit accord-
ing to South Florida Water Man-
agement rainfall records.
Lee and Collier Counties
remain under an emergency
FEMA declaration because of
extreme wildfire conditions. Lee
County still has a county wide
burn ban. The Commissioner of
Agriculture has initiated a
statewide ban on backyard
burning.
It takes time for our vegeta-
tion to dry out to current levels. It
will take just as long for it to
become re-hydrated less likely to
ignite easily. Consequently we
expect that local conditions will
only improve gradually over a
period of time.
Typically, this time of year
has irregular rainfall followed by
strong winds and low humidity
which dries the moisture brought
by the rain.
Lightning associated with
the early storms starts many wild-
fires because there has not been


enough rainfall to extinguish the
fire before it becomes intense.
Two (2) main causes:
human or natural:
Until May, only three percent
of our fires have been caused by
lightning the rest are caused by
humans, either accidentally or on
purpose (28 percentage arson).
*Lightning has accounted for
33 percent of the wildfires we
responded to so far this month.
When a cause is not evident,
Office of Agricultural Law
Enforcement will investigate as
they do any other crime to deter-
mine a cause.
Anyone found guilty of setting
a fire intentionally may receive a
fine and time in jail according to
appropriate statutes. Those
responsible for the start of a wild-
fire will be billed for the cost of
suppression (putting it out)
which can quickly become thou-
sands of dollars.
We need all residents to
continue to be careful any time
they use fire or anything that can
cause a spark or high heat to
start a dry area ablaze. This can


be anything from matches to an
off road vehicle.
Until regular summer rain pat-
terns arrive, everyone needs to
continue to be vigilant for the start
of wildfires and report them as
soon as possible.
Don't invite wildfire home!
If residents haven't followed
the Firewise guidelines we have
given so often, they need to pre-
pare their homes to survive a
wildfire. They need to clean up
their yards and their roofs and
trim excessive vegetation within
30 feet of their homes. They can
get more detailed information
from either the Florida Division of
Forestry website or at
Firewise.org.We expect to see
many fires between now and the
end of June. We don't need to
have fires started carelessly
adding to that total. It may be old,
but Smokey Bear's message is still
important today:
"Only you can prevent wild-
fires!"
We'll do our part; we need you
to do yours.

Benny and Elgenette Williams are opening a child care cen-
ter at the old post office building in the downtown section of
Moore Haven at 101 First St. They have operated Quality
Child Care in Clewiston for 10 years.


The new Quality Child Care 2 in Moore Haven has been ren-

begins June 4. Call Elgenette Williams at (863) 946-1252.


Child care center opens


Summer camp
starts June 4

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -The old post
office at 101 First St. will see new
life when Quality Child Care 2
opens its doors June 4 for summer
camp.
The directors, Elgenette and
Benny Williams, are accepting
applications for summer and the
regular school session.
The Williams have operated a
child care center in Clewiston for
10 years called Quality Child Care
and many of their clients asked
them to expand to Moore Haven.
After some time, the couple
thought itwas a good idea.
The new facility in downtown
Moore Haven is twice the size of
the Clewiston center and carries
the same standard of excellence of
their older facility, the owners said.
"I will make sure the environ-
ment is clean and nurturing," said
Ms. Williams.
The renovated interior of the old
post office is quite spacious and
has been set up with colorful
accommodations for children aged


one year and up. A playground has
been erected, but it still remains a
little work in progress as the own-
ers continue to identify areas to
improve and beautify.
The Williams are accredited
with Gold Seal Quality Care and
provide a school readiness pro-
gram for volunteer pre-kinder-
garten. They also have day care
programs for one year olds, two
year olds, pre-school, after school
care, and summer camp.
Meals will be catered from their
fully licensed kitchen at the Clewis-
ton center. They work with the
USDA food program and offer a
nutritional breakfast, lunch and
afternoon snack.
Open hours for year-round day
care are from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. A
half day is from 7 a.m. to 12 p.m.,
and after school is from 2:30 to 5:30
p.m. Summer camp has a six week
session and will operate from 7:30
a.m. to 3:30 p.m.
The center is open to visitors
starting Thursday, May31 from 10-2
p.m.
"I will strive to be a Gold Seal
Accredited center and provide
good quality service to children in
the community," said Ms. Williams.

Letters to the Editor


Wake up and
smell the tax relief
Dear Editor;
It is truly unfortunate that the
general apathy of our elected offi-
cials has finally caught up with
them and exposed their lack of
action and concern for the resi-
dents of Glades County. Now that
the governor has announced his
plans to reduce property taxes to
provide some relief for all Florida
residents, in an effort to offset the
rising costs of insurance, gasoline
and other necessities, our elected
officials want to cry, "FOUL"!
They should in fact, wake up
and realize that they have been
stagnant and remise in their
responsibilities for all these years
and allowed a multitude of
opportunities to pass them by.
Had they actively sought alterna-
tive income sources and seriously
entertained many of those who
sought opportunities to establish
themselves in Glades County,
those alternative sources would
already be a reality and the people
of Glades County would be enjoy-
ing more effective infrastructure
and a more prosperous lifestyle,
and thus, property taxes would
not be our only source of rev-
enue.
Why should everyone else in
the State benefit from the reduced
property taxes, "except Glades
County residents"? Why should
we be punished for the lack of
action by our elected officials?
How long will we allow ourselves
to be duped by their feeble pre-
tense of seeking alternatives.
They can "play elected official"
all they want and enjoy all the
"pious public esteem" they seem
to relish in as they have in the
past, but the real measure of a
public official is their effectiveness,
in the welfare of their con-
stituents. I have a great deal of
empathy for the people of Glades
County, but I have no Sympathy
for its Public Servants who have
for years squandered opportuni-
ties and bathed in their own
unimportance.
Wake up people, it's not the
Governor's fault for wanting to
improve the lifestyle of Florida
residents. Don't let our officials
cast off the blame on someone
else and cover their respective
derrieres with clouds of smoke.
When you accept the job, you
accept all the responsibilities that
go along with it!

Dancing coal and

Most Glades County residents
not up to date on ozone, particu-
late matter, carbon dioxide, nitro-

a coal burning power plant
believe that FPLs new proposed
Glades Power Park for Moore
Haven is "clean" and safe... FPL is
spending lots in marketing to pro-
mote it so. "Clean Coal" is the
new buzz word. Clean Coal is an
oxymoron. Coal fired electrical

States (and the world), and
whether gasified or liquefied it still
emits more toxic contaminants
per unit of energy than any other
source. Who else has seen the
new television commercial of a
dancing lump of coal being fol-
lowed by a happy throng of peo-
ple through the streets of town? I
believe it was made by General
Electric who will probably end up
manufacturing many of the com-
ponents needed for the plant.
Ultra super critical pulverized
coal, as compared to regular pul-
verized coal? Even the name or
branding it as the new super-
dooper of coal plants is insulting
to our intelligence. It reminds me
of the often re-packaging of old
products that are now labeled as
"new" and "improved" like laun-
dry detergent such as Tide. After
all, we have added new and
improved "scrubbers" says FPL.
With a little marketing you can
sell almost anything, even the
"Glades Power Park concept".
There is nothing green with grass
and trees, friendly, or attractive
about a coal burning power plant
or any close resemblance to what
most people consider a park to be
either. They are ugly, with smoke
stacks, spitting dirty pollutants,
huge lit up structures in the night.
By packaging it as a power park,
perhaps it will be thought of fond-
ly, even friendly and makes it easi-
er, a softer sell to the locals for sit-
ing in their rural county to
,swallow. By using the word
"park" there is a deliberate
attempt at changing the image of
what it really is. I suppose the real
name such as The Glades County
Ultra Super Critical Coal Burning
Power Plant, just does not have
the right sound to it; it doesn't
play in Peoria or Glades County. It
is also interesting that long time
FPL employee Rachel Scott, one
of the promoters and developers
of the "park" concept has left the
company. Perhaps she has come
into the light and left the dark
side.
Lets not forget the "dancing
coal" similar to the cute dancing
baby so prevalent on the internet
and Ally McBeal a few years back.
Happy coal, means happy peo-
ple. Repeat after me "coal is good,
coal is good". After awhile if you
bombard them just right, they will
believe it. Do you believe it? Wrag-
gs and Casas, the expensive pub-
lic relations group that worked for
Florida Power and Light is betting
Syou do. It is interesting also that
they too are no longer with FPL,
on the Glades Power Park project.
Why would you need a high
priced Miami based public rela-
tions firm to promote your prod-
uct unless there is a problem with
not only the image but of the
product or the process by which it
is produced? It is hard to get coal
to smell sweet. The public must
be sold on this one, it is too ugly
otherwise. Let's make coal more
fashionable, real Madison Avenue
drama is going on here.
Recent data shows that states
east of the Mississippi are actually
getting worse in terms of air quali-
ty (soot), while states out west are
getting cleaner. What is the pri-

mary difference? Coal fired power
plants that produce electricity in
the east is that difference, and the
fact that western states such as
California have made huge strides
in lessening overall emissions.
Lessons that this state has yet to
learn. Some legislation has
passed (HB 7123 by Rep. Bob
Allen) through this spring, includ-
ing energy efficient cars getting a
sales tax holiday, solar systems
that may get a tax rebate, farmers
will be encouraged to grow fuel
instead of food, and finally an
inventory of greenhouse gases.
The state will "undertake a study"
of how to get utilities to use
renewable resources of energy.
Power companies still have the
upper hand at the moment and
pretty well call the shots, and get
what they want from the state.
This legislation is weak at best but
does move Florida in the right
direction. Heck, even the Gover-
nor is installing solar panels at the
Governor's mansion, and recog-
nizes the Global Warming prob-
lem as it relates to his state.
FPL claims that they need this
power plant to diversify its power
production in the state of Florida
to one of our own readily avail-
able sources of fuels in this coun-
try- coal, which exists in huge
reserves in eastern sates. One of
the saddest myths generated is
that FPL is trying to reduce our
countries need for foreign fossil
fuel dependency by using our
own home grown readily avail-
able resource. If that is true, why
will FPL import coal from Poland
and Columbia for the Glades
Power Park? The answer: after it
is all said and done they may find
it is cheaper to import it in on boat
or barge then bringing it in by rail
from our own states of West Vir-
ginia and Pennsylvania. Shame
on you FPL, for wrapping the new
supposed need for "clean coal"
burning power plants around the
flag. Truth is: it has nothing to do
with patriotism and everything to
do with profit for shareholders.
FPL does not care where the coal
comes from, and shifts a depend-
ency from foreign oil to foreign
coal, and that makes absolutely
no sense and continues the
dependency problem on fossil
fuel.
How do you balance the local
economic need of a poor county
such as Glades when such an
offer comes to town promising
millions to local government?
Money thrown around like a
drunken sailor is how. Give
money to local community asso-
ciations, museums, finance local
festivals, and promises of new fire
trucks; even buy some cows from
the youth's livestock- that's how it
is done. Simple bribes that is all it
takes, in simple little Glades and
yes, the dancing lump of coal.
Don't worry folks because part of
FPL's request is for you the cus-
tomer to finance this latest ven-
ture anyway. This is part of what is
known as "up front cost recov-
ery" allowable under Florida law.
This will encompass all the good
faith money being thrown around
the county at present right down
to the "power" luncheons, hotel


and spiritual needs of the com-
munity in the restoration and
rebuilding of their lives and
homes in times of a natural or
man-made disaster.
CREW will provide collabora-
tive leadership and advocacy in
meeting the needs for revitaliz-
ing and improving the quality of
life for the most vulnerable in the


stays, anything even remotely rel-
ative to vested interest by local,
government for the project. This,
would of course include all of
Hendry County government
groups, where they need the,
transmission lines. All of the
expenses of the "Power Coali-
tion" the blue buttoned friends of
coal, a supposed "grass roots"
group in favor of the power plant;
will be paid back, ultimately by
you the customer. It costs FPL not
a dime.
What other for profit business
can have its customers finance,
their latest expansion, by simply
raising- you the customer's cur-
rent electric rate? What a deal. Yes
sir, Moore Haven will be a compa-
ny town, FPL's, just ask Okee-
chobee County who can't get
them to pay their tax bill.
"If the federal government
begins taxing carbon emissions
it's conceivable that Florida
Power and Light Company cus-
tomers could have to pay an addi-
tional 120 million to 400 million a
year for electricity from the pro-,
posed Glades County Power Park.,
That would be the price of penal-
ties for emitting more than 14 mil-
lion tons of carbon dioxide a year
if Congress passes the carbon,
tax", wrote Kristi E. Swartz from
the Palm Beach Post.
It is not a matter of "if "only
"when" the carbon tax does
indeed become a reality. Coal
burning power plants will have to
pay and pass that cost along to
their customers in forms of
increased electric rates. Pay atten- -
tion people. This is old, a dinosaur'
of technology, obsolete before it'
is even constructed and soon to
be extremely expensive electricity'
production. We the customers
shouldn't let Glades County or
FPL shove this boondoggle, or as
we prefer to call it out here in the
country the fire breathing dragon
down our throats.
Simple Glades County is suffer-
ing through its own sort of Scopes
Trial at the present. Remember
the original "monkey trial"? Just:
switch the term "Global Warm-
ing" for "Evolution" and the cur-
rent situation is aptly presented.
Glades Commissioners have
openly stated that they don't i
believe in Global Warming and ;
Climate change. It is no wonder
they can't see the big picture: of.
how the Glades Power Park will
be a contributing factor in the

five sites which will be visited by
consultants representing health-

site and there are no wetlands on
the site. Land is leasable.
3) Lykes-Palmdale site, Glades
County: Property is divided along
U.S. 27 with rail access paralleling
U.S. 27. This is the largest of the
submitted sites, at 1,000 acres. It
is 41 miles southeast of Sebring,
five miles north of Moore Haven
and close to IFAS agricultural, bio-

4) Wal-Mart Distribution Area,

site is 20 miles from 1-75 (Ever-

Ms. Whirls said the consulting
company hired by FHREDI and
Enterprise Florida to steer the cat-
alyst project rated the 13 pro-
posed sites based on their prox-
imity to Interstate highway
systems or multilane state high-
ways, proximity to rail, proximity
to major population centers for
reasonable commuting times,
expandable in size in stages as
growth and development occur.
"It was interesting in that the
consultants had short listed four
sites and the Glades Palmdale site
was not on the original short list,"
Ms. Whirls said. "We were given
the option of adding a fifth site
and as the Palmdale site was the
next highest ranked in the short
listing and has the most potential
to impact a regional area, given its
proximity to Hendry and High-
lands Counties as well as Glades
County, we succeeded having it
added to the list," Ms. Whirls said.
"We were surprised and delight-


13-year-old was turned over to
juvenile authorities.
Officials with Bronson's Office
of Agricultural Law Enforcement
say the juvenile started a fire on

ed when it came in third during
the prioritization of the sites."
Now that the top five sites have
been identified, the consultants
will begin contacting companies
in the healthcare industry, which
may include companies ranging
from manufacturers of pharma-
ceuticals, nuitraceuticals or pros-
thetics, to research and develop-
ment corporations like Scripps.
They'll provide all of the informa-
tion that has been gathered
regarding the proposed sites,
including workforce demograph-
ics, average area wage scales and
particulars on the properties
themselves.
As interested companies are
identified, the consultants will
work with the regional EDCs to
schedule site visits and meetings,
beginning with the top sites -
those considered "shovel ready"
and then working their way down
the list.
In addition to the benefit of
having the Glades Palmdale site
marketed as part of the catalyst
package, Ms. Whirls said that par-
ticipating in the process has given
each EDC a wealth of information'
which they would not have been
privy to otherwise. That informa-
tion has been provided to each
EDC on disc, and plans call for the
information to be added to EDC
and FHREDI websites.
"Studies have shown that
employees will travel from a 75-
mile radius to work for compa-
nies offering high wage/high
skilled jobs," the EDC director
said. "Now we not only have
detailed information on the
Glades Palmdale site, but also we
have demographic information
on potential employees from
throughout the region. We can
compare incentives offered by
neighboring counties with what
we have to offer, compare real
estate prices and other data
which we can use strategically to
level the pla' ing field."
Glades County property owner
and EDC partner, Lykes Brothers
also benefits from the "pre-clear-
ance" review of the submitted
properties prepared by the
Department of Environmental
Protection, Florida Department of
Transportation and other state
agencies as part of the site selec-
tion process.
"The benefit of the pre-clear-


sion of Forestry responded to the
blaze, which grew to seventy
acres, and firefighters were able
to put the fire out before it caused
any injuries or property damage.

ance review is obvious," Ms.
Whirls said. even if a particular
site is not selected for the 'cata-
lyst' project, that site is well ahead
of the game when it comes to
development for other commer-
cial or industrial uses, having
cleared many of the permitting
hurdles associated with the
process."
The EDC and Lykes now have
much of the information needed,
not only for the Glades Palmdale
site, but the property adjacent to
the proposed FPL Power Park off
S.R. 78 in Moore Haven. This
information will be helpful to
market those properties to other
prospective new businesses and
industries.
The EDC director would
encourage other landowners to
use the site description process
outlined by the catalyst project
consultants to provide informa-
tion to the economic develop-
ment council to assist in market-
ing those properties.
"While some of the other
counties have other advantages
- more existing medical facili-
ties, satellite community college
and university classes, more exist-
ing housing and commercial
establishments we have more
land with more rail in Glades
County," Ms. Whirls said. "We
also have and intend to preserve
more green space and natural
areas, all of which speak to the
kind of 'quality of life' attributes
companies are looking for when
relocating or expanding. We think
Glades County is the land of
opportunity for new businesses
and the catalyst project is going to
help us convey that to new
prospects."
Ms. Whirls is quick to point out
that whichever county ultimately
"wins" the catalyst project, it will
create opportunities throughout
the Heartland region.
I. "The Scripps project in Palm
BeachCounty was:a 'catalyst' for
the Torey Pines project in St. Lucie
County. Just as the FPL project in
Glades will create job opportuni-
ties in Hendry and Highlands
County, if a large research and
development park were created
in Highlands County as part of the
catalyst project, for example, a
great many future Glades County
college graduates could expect to
get jobs there," Ms. Whirls said.

Good behavior nets luau for MHHS students


The positive behavior support
team at Moore Haven
Junior/Senior High School hosted
a Luau for 170 students with no
referrals for the 4th 9 nine weeks
grading period.
Students whose name did not
appear on the student discipline
report were allowed to buy an
arm band for 30 "Terrier dollars"
to be able to join in the event.
Those students were allowed to
also dress down for the day. The
students were released to the
court yard after their first period
exam.
A slip and slide was set up,
soaked in dish soap. Students par-
ticipated in a volleyball game,
danced to music provided by
Michael Snowden, laid out in the
sun, played football, got an air
brush tattoo or just talked to their
friends. Nicole Platt and Anthony
Holley created some luau acces-
sories for the day. The students
and staff were asked "What do
you enjoy best about today?"
"It's Graduation," said Mrs.
Jean Prowant.
"There are no problems with
the kids and they are all having a
wonderful time," said Deputy
Gaeta.
Heather Simmons comment-
ed,"The food."
Lindsey Ringstaff added "It's
the last day of school."
Jenna Bryant said, "The stu-
dents get out of class, get wet and
listen to good music."
Mrs. Sylvia Hernandez com-
mented "It's nice to see the kids
rewarded for their good behav-
ior."
"We get spray painted with tat-
toos," said Jose Aguilar.
"We get out of class," said
Jawanna Williams.
"I've enjoyed the slip and slide
and now I've soaked," said
Shelby Schlueter.
"I've enjoyed the food," said
Mr. Ellinger.
"Everyone at Moore Haven
High School has been friendly.
The students are having a terrific
time and it's been a safe atmos-
phere," said Mrs. Angela Lanier.
Mr. Hutchinson commented
"The kids are able to have a nice
time while the teachers have a
chance to grade 150 tests."

Wood paths lead to special things


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Independent Newspapers
As the sun moves slowly north-
ward reflections and shadows take
on new dimensions. And little
"windows" through low-hanging
limbs are alight with new scenes -
especially those with silvered Span-
ish moss waving back and forth
across them.
There are a few paths that we
have carved through the vines and
saplings that we walk and explore
often, but ours pale in comparison
to those little trails and avenues of
those who naturally call the woods
home. We have to cut and chop
our way while they make their way
bending and brushing against
whatever is in their way. Those of
the deer are marked here and there
with small trees which they have
rubbed free of bark as they stroke
their horns back and forth. One
morning not long ago, one of our
Christmas trees, a tall, shapely Vir-
ginia cedar along the pasture road
was bare of bark completely
around the small trunk for at least
ten inches. The reddish strips of
bark hung like ribbons blowing in
the wind. There was no way it
could survive and it didn't. And,
close by, there was another cedar,
considerably larger, that was
rubbed bare on one side. We split a
two-foot piece of six-inch accor-
dion plastic pipe, fitted it around
the wounded trunk, then taped it
back together. So far, so good,
there's been no more damage that
we can see to that tree. It's a differ-
ent story with a tall eucalyptus on


the west barn road, which was
planted as a sapling about ten years
ago and now stands twenty feet tall
or more. It seems doomed, just like
the little cedar, for there is so much
bark missing there's no way we
can un-do or repair the damage.
However some eucalyptus trees
are amazingly determined to over-
come all obstacles and live in spite
of afflictions. It's been said that
these Australian natives have sever-
al layers of bark which gives them
more of a fighting chance against
animals and fire.
A deer path can be easily fol-
lowed even though when it's in
the woods on a forest carpet, there
are no visible signs of hoof prints.
Nevertheless the signs are there,
especially when their napping
places are found. Amongst woods-
men it's said that deer never sleep,
they just nap and that with one eye
at least partially open. These nap-
ping areas are amazingly round
and often the needles and leaves
seem to have been meticulously
arranged for comfort. And always
there is an escape route, that is, the
path that leads in is just that. It's an
entrance but on one side or end or
somewhere there will be another,
albeit a smaller path, that will
allow the animal to escape if nec-
essary. When the fawns are yet
with their mother, the napping
place is often egg-shaped.
When following some of the
pathways of the woodland crea-
tures, it seems a wonder that they
can get from one point to another
so quickly because often the little
avenues bend and turn so often
and sharply that it seems as


though they could get dizzy in a
hurry. Rabbits and squirrels and
raccoons race like the wind, and
often it looks as though the little
brown soldiers, the quail, prefer
running to flying.
When following these little
trails, it's not unusual to see an
indentation on the forest floor
that's no bigger than a quart bas-
ket. The creature that makes his
bed here does so as artistically as a
wren thin, thread-like "hairs"
from the fronds of Sabal palms are
usually on the outside, while the
inside is lined with the soft down-
like fiber that grows behind the
bootjacks and lichens from any
trees that offer it. And almost
always, there's considerable Span-
ish moss tucked in and around the
homey little "bedroom." Just
maybe one day I'll be there when
"he" or "she" comes wandering in!
Islands of saw palmettos are
wondrous shelters for wild crea-
tures. Beneath the low, many-
trunked palms, heavily laden with
fronds, wind and rain rarely find
their way in. Thus, the winding tun-
nels with little "rooms" here and
there, mostly stay dry and warm.
And the natural mulching of the
dried, sloughed fronds around the
outer rim of these islands, act
somewhat as an alarm system for
those inside. When a predator
steps on dried fronds, the ensuing
crackling noise alerts the inside
inhabitants to possible danger.
Some palmetto tunnels are not
more than eight to ten inches in
diameter, while others can be three
times that size. In a big island, it's
impossible to see the end of any of

them as they go branching off in
various directions all along. After
trying to crawl on all fours into one
of the larger tunnels to take a look
around, it soon became absolutely
clear that it could not be done with-
out destroying the intricate mak-
ings of those little roads that highly
resemble long, winding covered
bridges. So there was one thing to
do: back out. There wasn't space
enough to turn around! It's always
a help to be able to see where one
is going, especially backwards! The
"roofs" of these islands, being on
many levels and made up of hun-
dreds of fronds, doesn't let a lot of
light through, which naturally
makes the crawling-in or crawling-
out even more difficult. Even at
high noon, the light that does make
its way inside these wild sanctuar-
ies is like asoft, still twilight.
On one early morning explo-
ration when first light was just
spilling over the pond, the path was
followed into the hammock...cen-
turies-old oaks and cabbage palms
and one enormous wild orange
tree. With such a heavy limb cover
it was still dark. Not a sound of
morning could be heard, not even
the first songbird or cooing ofa love
dove. But suddenly, there was a
faint brief snuffing sound near my
feet. As my eyes became more
accustomed to the darkness and
pale streaks of light began filtering
through the upper story of leaves, a
shell-like image could barely be
seen. Standing statue-still, watch-
ing intently, there was a subtle
awareness of other little scurrying
movements nearby. By this time
there was a bit more light enough
to begin to see what was going on.
There on the floor of the ancient
hammock, a mother armadillo
was frantically directing her six off-
spring back into a hollow, moss-
covered palm log, her snout rapidly
and cleverly maneuvering her egg-
size babies back into their log
home. In seconds, they were totally
out of sight and there was not a
sound, nor a movement from that
little family of wild creatures.
Silence reined supreme in the ham-
mock until the birds began singing
their morning songs.
Carefully retracing my steps to
the edge of the aisle leading into
that hammock, which we had
come to think of as "the cathe-
dral," the ringing of the old ship's
bell on the porch and the inviting
fragrance of fresh-perked coffee
met me head on. The morning's
adventure was over. It was time to
go home again.

There was a special county workshop on property taxes cuts
May 21. Residents and Glades County commissioners dis-
cussed loss of county services. Senator Dave Aronberg, left,
meets Walter Shirley after the workshop adjourned.

two ambulance service would be
scaled back to one, leaders have
said. It could be a long wait for an ill
or injured person if the only county
ambulance is already engaged in a
three- to four-hour round trip to
Fort Myers.
"I think there is going to be loss
of life. I don't think we can put a
price tag on our families," said Rus-
sell Echols.
According to Butch Jones, com-
mission chairman, more affluent
counties like Palm Beach will suffer
less of a cutback and will eliminate
things like libraries, recreation
parks, water parks and sidewalks.
"They are cutting out the frills,"
said Butch Jones.
Joseph Richter, Muse resident,
told the county that his taxes are
still lower than they were when he
lived in New Jersey. He hopes
county services will not be drasti-
cally reduced.
"I'm willing to pay my taxes,"
said Joseph Richter.
With a severe cutback in funds,
Glades County may have to termi-
nate nearly half of its law enforce-
ment officers and shut down the
fire departments.
Wendell Taylor, county manag-
er, informed the public that the fire
departments are dependent on vol-
unteers who work without a salary,
but equipment, fuel and electricity
do cost money. Within the last
eight months other counties have
donated older trucks to Glades.
"Citrus County gave us two fire
trucks, thank you. We don't have
the money to buy new trucks," said
Wendell Taylor.
Chairman Butch Jones men-

time to finally let go.
"Truthfully, I need some time
for myself, too," she said. "There
are so many avenues I want to
explore like reading, which is
my first love in the area of hob-
bies, then there's poetry which
may be a little different from
most people who write poetry.
Mine is more or less written as a
diary something will happen
and I simply write a poem about
it. It's something I hope my fami-
ly will enjoy if not now, later on.
Crocheting I really like too,
which I've not had time to do in
many years. Also, I like to cook
and work jigsaw puzzles."
Evelyn Sapp and her husband
Jerry (Gator) Sapp live at the
corner of roadway and Palmetto
Avenue where they've lived for
twenty years. Husband Jerry
works for the Seminole Police


tioned that Glades has only two
lobbyists working in Tallahassee to
represent the county's interests;
whereas wealthier counties have
hundreds. He told the public that
county officials, city of Moore
Haven officials, and local business
owners.tried to see the governor.
"We could not get in to the gov-
ernor's office. We spoke to an aid,"
said Mr. Jones.
Walter Shirley, resident and
business owner, is concerned that
Tallahassee lawmakers are focused
on other counties.
"We need to remind people up
there that we are not Palm' Beach
County and DeSoto County. They
are looking at Florida like every-
thing is in Fort Lauderdale or Palm
Beach," said Walter Shirley.
Senator Dave Aronberg heard
Mr. Shirley speak and he reported
that the Florida Senate does not
seek as harsh a reduction as does
the Florida House of Representa-
tives.
"Not one of us supports the
House plan and that is why we
have to go back. It is a delicate bal-
ance. We get a lot of calls about tax
relief ... and the governor wants
taxes to drop like a rock," said Sen-
ator Dave Aronberg.
Senator Aronberg also men-
tioned that the legislature is now
hearing from law enforcement and
fire fighters' organizations and lob-
byists who have strong opinions
about the loss of funds.
The legislature will return for a
special session June 12- 22 which
will allow additional time for input
from Floridians. The senator and
county commissioners encour-
aged residents to contact lawmak-
ers inside and outside their districts.

high phosphorus content. About
280 tons of phosphorus within
Fisheating Bay will be hauled
away.
The removal of one to one-
and-a-half feet of dried muck will
restore the sandy bottom, which
is a medium for the native plants
along the shoreline, and will fos-
ter spawning beds for large-
mouth bass and pan fish. In addi-
tion, it will provide habitat for
apple snails, essential to the
endangered snail kite'S survival.
Last March, the water manage-


and Palmdale, Evelyn dedicated
her talents to hair-dressing in
both Lakeport and Moore
Haven. She also worked briefly
in the Supervisor of Elections
Office in Moore Haven and did
office work at the Glades County
Democrat Newspaper.
"Jerry and I are really looking
forward to taking long vacations
'as we've not been able to do
thus far. Last year we simply
traveled all over Florida seeing
places and things we'd only
heard of. It was wonderful! We
didn't make any specific plans
- you might say we just fol-
lowed the wind. It was the best
vacation we have ever had! And
that's what we'll do again.
Wherever the car leads that's
where we'll go!"
A long time patron of the
Palmdale Post Office is Tom
Gaskins, Jr., a member of the
Glades County School Board,
who lives at Venus.

ment district gave Glades County
the opportunity to participate in
the restoration. It allotted nearly
$1 million to pay for the heavy-
duty clean up in order for Glades
County to organize and imple-
ment the excavation of Harney
Pond Canal Recreation Area.
On May 24, Wendell Taylor,
Glades County Manager, was
observing the removal progress
next to the Harney Pond Canal.
The monumental task was
impressive to watch as heavy
equipment and dump trucks
rumbled past in coordinated
procession. According to Mr.
Taylor, nearly 150 trucks loads of
muck had been carried away by


Evelyn as postmistress," said Mr.
Gaskins, "has always been a
delight, a very pleasant experi-
ence. I hate to think of her not
being there but the Gaskins wish
her well and hope that her retire-
ment will be more than she ever
dreamed possible."

'Belles' of the ball field are going places
CLEWISTON The Belles Divi-
sion, ages 13-15, held their final
game of the season in Clewiston
on Tuesday, May 22. Both teams,
Howell Oil & Hungry Howies,
went undefeated against two
LaBelle teams and one Belle Glade
team. They have been practicing
and/or playing games since March.
All of the coaches are volunteers
that try to help the girls to improve
their softball skills (batting, fielding
and base running), promote
sportsmanship and encourage the
girls to have fun through activity.
The teams mingled together for .
the final picture of the season,
some of them having played on
each others teams since T-ball.
Hopefully an All-Star Team will be
formed from the group. If our
"Belles" win at districts, they will
travel to Sneeds, in early July for the
State play-off games. Submitted photo/Brenda Whidden

The Terriers fall 40-6 to Gateway Charter


MOORE HAVEN The
Moore Haven Terriers fell 40-6 to
Gateway Charter High School on
Friday, May 18 at Terrier Field.
Gateway jumped out to a 20-0
lead but the Terriers rallied with
a 70 yard scoring drive, capped
by a 22 yard touchdown run by
Sophomore Fred Hall.
The Terriers however, were
unable to slow down Gateway's
talented offense and keep the
game close. Gateway dressed
out 40 players for the game and


was able to wear down the
smaller home squad.
Antwonne McCloud and Dal-
ton Britt alternated at quarter-
back for Moore Haven and each
player showed promise for the
upcoming season.
"Antwonne is a great athlete
and may play several positions
for us this year. We want to get
the ball in his hands so he can
make plays," said Coach Bond.
"Dalton is a smart quarter-
back and picked up our offense


rather quickly.
He showed poise tonight and
made some good throws."
Richard Anderson led the Ter-
riers with 50 yards receiving and
six tackles on defense. Xavier
Fagan also had six tackles for the
Terriers.
Despite the score, Coach
Bond was pleased with the over-
all performance of the spring
season. "This spring we were
able to install about 50 percent
of our offense. We will improve


as we continue to add to our sys-
tem and the kids learn and grow.
Our key to being successful will
begin in the weight room this
summer. We need to get a lot
stronger and in better physical
condition."
Moore Haven will begin its
summer weight training on Mon-
day, June 4, at 6 p.m. The training
sessions will run every Monday,
Wednesday and Friday and is
open to all athletes at Moore
Haven Junior-Senior High School.

Like a Mighty Army Church of God


By Jackie Miller, Minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
A minister asked a returned GI
to speak one Sunday. He consent-
ed reluctantly to do so, but on
condition that just before he was
to speak the congregation sing,
"Like A Mighty Army Moves The
Church Of God" (Onward Christ-
ian Soldiers). Here is what the
young man said:
"Like a mighty army moves the
church of God? That might have
been all right once, but the trou-
ble now is that about ten million


men know exactly how an army
moves and it doesn't move the
way a lot of you folks do in the
church or do not."
"Suppose the army accepted
the lame excuses that many of
you think are good enough to
serve as an alibi for not attending
the church services."
"Imagine this if you can -
Reveille at 7 a.m. squads on
parade ground. The sergeant
barks out, 'Count fours.' One.
TWo Three.... Number four is
missing. "Where's Private
Smith?"


"Oh," says a chap by the
vacant place, "Mr. Smith was too
sleepy to get up this morning; he
was out late last night and needed
the sleep. He said to tell you he
would be with you in spirit.
Remember me to him."
"Where's Brown?' asks the
sergeant.
"Oh, puts in another chap,
"He's playing golf. He gets only
one day a week for recreation and
you know how important that is."
"Where's Robinson?"
"Robinson, explains a buddy,
is sorry not to greet you in person,


but he is entertaining guests today
and of course, couldn't come.
Besides, he was at drill last week."
Honest, not, did any conversa-
tion like that ever happen in any
army? Don't make me laugh! If
any GI tried to pull that stuff, he
would get twenty days in the brig!
Yet, you hear stuff like that every
week in the church and it is said
with a straight face, too!
"Like a mighty army? Why, if
this church really moved like a
mighty army, a lot of you folks
would be court-martialed within
the hour."


Memorial Day comes once a year and once a week


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
Today is the actual "Memorial
Day" we've changed some cel-
ebrations to coincide with week-
ends, giving people times for
"mini-vaca-
tions" or
longer times
off in
sequence. I try
to use such
holidays to
catch up on
projects taking
more than one
or two days; SamuelS.
usually Thomas
accomplishing
something not otherwise likely
to get done. The difficulty is,
though, that the long holiday
weekend becomes an nd in
itself and it is all too tempting to
forget to celebrate or remember
the reason for it.
I've heard that people in Amer-
ica spend more time working
each week than most of the other
nations in the world; time off
becomes all too precious and
there had better be a very good
reason for someone to want to


demand any of it, no matter how
good the cause.
The traditions that spring up
around some holidays (like the
Indianapolis 500 race) have come
into being and may not have any-
thing to do whatsoever with the
holiday or reason it is celebrated
in the first place.
This edition of the news
comes on the actual Memorial
Day. Maybe it's not a "holiday".
but it might be worthwhile to take
a moment out to remember. We
are called to remember those
who have made a sacrifice; to
memorialize them and to recall
what they offered. The offering
that was made was for us.
The wry truism that, "Old sol-
diers never die...young ones do"
caused me to reflect on so many
of those who would have been in
the prime of their lives to give up
their lives for people they would
have never met, for a world that
would never be shared, for condi-
tions they never dreamed about.
There is a park in Palmyra, N.J.
named after Fredrick M. Rodgers.
He was 27 years old when he was
killed. He was shot by a sniper in
the Argonne Forest during the
First World War. I never met him
but 1 know his family because it is


my family. My great-grandmother
never really believed he died no
matter how many others told her
it was really so. Like so many oth-
ers, he lives on; not in the sense
my great-grandmother might
have liked, but in the sense that
he is remembered, memorialized
by those who followed; continue
their lives because of his sacrifice
and who honor his memory.
Memorial Day is the time I
reflect on this distant relative;
dead over twenty years before I
was born. I try to honor him and
all of the others; in all of the wars,
people known and unknown, all
worthy of our memorial. Our tra-
dition has a prayer to bless the
things we offer to God that thanks
God for the gifts of memory, rea-
son and skill. It is our capacity to
remember that is a big part of our
being distinctly human. Our
memories give us perspective and
teach us, give us reverence and
respect, let us learn from what
happens to us and keeps alive all
that we should have as a part of
our very being. They give us a
foundation on which growing
takes place, where progress is
founded, where life advances.
On this Memorial Day, I'll take
a moment out to remember all


those who gave; those I've met
and those I wish I could have met
and those I haven't met. What we
have, what I have is built on what
they gave us and they're worth
remembering.
Each Sunday I celebrate
another who gave His life. Each
time we celebrate communion,
we are called by those words He
spoke to, "Do this in remem-
brance of me," that we don't for-
get and that, somehow, He
comes among us once more. For
some, it is even hard to get out
on the weekends for an hour or
so: after all, we work more than
the rest of the world.
My own feeling is though, we
have something worth the sacri-
fice to remember and memorial-
ize. It is to honor and to recall
another .who made a sacrifice,
who laid down His life, who asks
that we remember Him and our
worship is to be a fitting memori-
al. Each Sunday is a Memorial Day
too. We who "eat this bread and
drink this cup...Proclaim the
Lord's death until He comes." (1
Corinthians 11:26).
Thank God for all of our
memorials: the 31st of May and
the ones we are called to cele-
brate each week, too.


For when there is no such thing as independence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
In Israel, they say that when it
rains, God is blessing the earth. I
would love for God to rain down
His blessings on us! Our drought
and dryness, however, doesn't
really compare to the desert
wilderness that God's people
went through as they left Egypt
and headed towards the Holy
Land.
Some time ago, a man decided
to try to retrace the Sinai desert
experience where God's people
wandered for forty years. He
spent time with the nomadic
Bedouins who make that wilder-
ness their home. He walked the
hot sands and the rugged wilder-
ness mountains. In the process,
he found himself on an unantici-
pated journey of spiritual discov-
ery. He learned something about
why God led His children through
the desert and why God still
leads. This man's conclusion was


this: "In the desert, there's no
such thing as independence only
dependence."
We were raised to be inde-
pendent. It probably started when
we were raised with thoughts and
encourage-
ment that we
could do it by,
ourselves. And
we've been try-
ing to do it by
ourselves ever
since. This
independence
flows over into
our walk of John
faith even Hicks
when it comes
to totally trusting God.
Yes, we believe in God. Yes, we
go church. Yes, we try to live by
God's commandments. But we
want to drive. We like to be in
control (evidenced in our desire
to be the one in control of the TV
remote!) In life, we believe that
we can make it happen. We can
make it work or we can fix it.


Then comes the time of
drought; a season in our life when
the bottom drops out and things
go dry. We find ourselves
parched. The heat is intense.
Before we know it, we are worn
out physically, emotionally and
spiritually. Welcome to the wilder-
ness.
In the midst of our wilderness
experience, it's important for us
to remember that the desert is
part of the plan and to not give up
or give in. It was part of the plan
for the Israelites. It was part of the
plan for John the Baptist as it was
for Paul and as it was for the Son
of God and it is for you and me.
Remember the Word of God
for the people of God in
Deuteronomy 8:2-4: "Remember
how the Lord your God led you all
the way in the desert ... to humble
you and to test you in order to
know what was in your heart, -
to teach you that man does not
live on bread alone but on every
word that comes from the mouth
of the Lord."


God says He leads us into the
desert to humble us; to bring us to
a place where the Lord is all we
have. It is at such times we learn
that the Lord is all we need. In the
desert, there's no such thing as
independence only dependence.
When we come to our Lord run-
ning on empty and in total need,
we open ourselves up to an expe-
rience of God's power and God's
grace we can't get any other way.
The desert may not be pleas-
ant. It may stress us out. It may
strip us down. But in the midst of
it, remember that God does not
abandon us. God led His people
through the wilderness then and
still leads today. God is there with
us, and His promise is that in our
times of need, He will carry us as
a father carries his child
(Deuteronomy 1:31). It's a "foot-
prints in the sand" type of experi-
ence. In our hardest times of life,
God is there to carry us so that we
can complete the journey and go
farther than we would ever be
able to go on our own.

Construction school grad, Faustin Franconi receives his "tools of the trade" as he gradu-
ates from Palm Beach County Community College's Introduction to Construction program
on May 10.


Thursday, May 31, 2007


->. ;e. ll_ .A L Wlg !!liLEiginu I
Proudly displaying his certificate, Wilner Fertil graduated from the Introduction to Construc-
tion courses and plans to make a living in the construction field.


Construction graduates ready to make their dreams come true


BELLE GLADE Tool belts
overflowing with tools, hard hats,
work clothes vouchers, OSHA
cards and certificates are the mate-
rial items given to Palm Beach
Community College's Introduction
to Construction graduates during a
celebration in their honor at the


Belle Glade Elk's Club on May 10.
While their training and these
items gave the students all that
they need to find entry-level
employment in the construction
field, it is those things that cannot
be seen or touched that will have
the biggest impact on the 30


graduates' lives.
Through classroom lectures
and hands-on projects, the stu-
dents became proficient in the
essentials of the labor construction
field. During the 168-hour course,
they developed skills in safety,
hand tools, power tools, construc-


tion math, blueprints, basic rig-
ging, masonry, carpentry and plas-
tic pipe fitting.
These newly gained skills both
increase the graduates' earning
power and their confidence.
Many of the students, either
unemployed or underemployed,


are now qualified to find positions
working on the many construc-
tion projects underway in west-
ern Palm Beach County.
The course, offered through a
partnership with Associated
Builders and Contractor's Insti-
tute, is part of a grant that the col-


lege received from the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict to provide job training and
workforce development opportu-
nities to residents of the Glades to
prepare them to work on the
Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Project.

where they really enjoyed the deli-
cious treats. Cupcakes were avail-
able for each of the students, who


then frosted and decorated their
own cupcake.
Ms. Kelly Sullivan and Chris

coordinators of this event. They dis-
tributed bags of books and suggest-
ed a summer reading list specific to

1980 to 1987. Before then, he played
center for the University of Alabama,
where he studied social work. His
compassion for children and people
in need of social services led him to

He also serves on the Orange

He also enjoys turkey hunting and

Stephenson was born in Murfrees-
boro, N.C. and grew up in Hampton,
Va., where he lived until he attended
college.
"We all have to protect what's
important," Stephenson said. "That's
why I want to serve on the Commis-

Dwight Stephenson, 49-year-old
NFL hall-of-famer for the Miami Dol-
