City receives updates on code


22 tons of trash
hauled away

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The city
of Moore Haven held its council
meeting June 19.
Mike Jones, public works
director, reported that trash am-
nesty week of June 11 was a
moderate success. City residents
gathered and sorted their trash,
debris and vegetation so that city


trucks could haul it away.
This effort was necessary to
rid the community of loose de-
bris that could cause damage
during hurricane winds, organiz-
ers said. Mike Jones believes this
was beneficial to city residents.
"Things are looking a little
better around town," said Mr.
Jones.
The city continues to pursue
code enforcement by observing
and documenting parking, and
property ordinance violations.
Notices are mailed to the owners


of vehicles and property in ques-
tion.
Steve Ramunni, city attorney,
informed the council that a code
enforcement notice, remains
pending on the Arcade build-
ing which was deemed unsafe.
The matter of demolition will be
brought before Judge Lundy on a.
July 19 court date, the code viola-
tion deadline.
The council was briefed by its
public finance advisor, Philip C.
Bennett, on affordable housing
financing for Moore Haven. Mr.


Bennett is president of Public Fi-
nance Associates, Inc. located in
Fort Myers.
The council elected officers to
coordinate the affordable hous-
ing finance authority. John Ahern
was elected chairman, and Mike
Brarile\ \\as elected vice-chair-
man.
Russell Echols, Glades County
conimissionet, informed the city
thali he ne\\ 911 system will
hare to change street names
in order to eliminate confusion
for first responders. He asked


the city to contact 'he cou:nrv's
911 coordinator when chooslsng,
street names in order to avoid
duplicate names.
Mr. Echols also thanked the
city council for their show of
support when the Glades Power
Park was under consideration.
According to the commissioner,
the loss of the plant's potential
tax benefits and the reduction
in ad valorem taxes, it will be
difficult to maintain services for

Hurricane


tale has


haunting

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
What is it like to survive when
two thousand perish within one
hour?
And which is worse, to endure
the perils or the disaster itself or to
engage in the operations of mop-
ping up, which inevitably must
follow, surrounded by death, de-
struction and desolation?
So begins the foreword to Will
E; Lawrence's classic book titled,
"Okeechobee Hurricane."
The late Mr. Lawrence was an
historian of no little note. He had
an active and varied part in the de-
velopment of the colorful region
of Okeechobee during the early
days of its reclamation.
In his historical book, Mr. Will
wrote, "I lived through that incred-
ible catastrophe which exacted a
loss of life exceeded only twice in
our nation's history. This calamity
occurred in a location so isolated
that the state's own governor did
not learn of its enormity until
three days later. So extended and
difficult was the terrain that after
six weeks the search for bodies
was discontinued with many still
unrecovered."
Lawrence Will writes that one
word describes the Okeechobee
hurricane, and that word is
S"Hell." A raging inferno of rolling,
swirling waters, of shrieking, de-
moniac winds, of lashing rain and
darkness, black and absolute. He
goes on to write that there were
no atheists that night on the
shores of Okeechobee!
Then, for those still living,
came the, second phase of hell:
desolation and despair as those
left searched in the flooded woods
and marshes and saw grass for
the horrible remains of family and
friends and neighbors.
And, finally, loading them into
trucks by unending scores and
burning them in heaps of dozens
when they could no longer be
transported.
That the hurricane did not
cause an even greater loss of life
was due only to the circumstance
that this was then a new and

MOORE HAVEN Major
Richard Jones works for the
Glades Count\ Sheriff's Office.
He is the director of operations
at the new county jail which
had an open house on June 23.
He was kind enough to answer
some interview questions.
Where were you born
and raised? Clewiston, Flor-
ida.
How old were you when
you realized you wanted to
be a law enforcement of-
ficer? I was about four years
old.
What are your job du-
ties? Primarily, I oversee op-
eration standards for the jail.


I coordinate the purchase of
items, their delivery and instal-
lation, and the training of new
corrections officers.
Where did you receive
your training? I went to the
South Florida Community Col-
lege and attended the Crimi-
nal Justice and Public Safety
Academy for one year. I was
also employed full time with
the Clewiston Police Depart-
ment while I took classes. I got
certified in law enforcement in
1999 and started out as a patrol
officer for the Glades County
Sheriff's Office. While I was
in patrol I attended advanced
classes in criminal justice, and
I have gone to classes as far
away as California.


You are quite young to
have the title of major.
How did you achieve this?
I started out in patrol and it
was my goal to become a ser-
geant before age 21. It was a
goal I had in high school, and
I accomplished it when Sher-
iff Rider was in office. I scored
high on the exam and was
promoted to sergeant. From
there I went on to be an inves-
tigator, worked with several
grants, oversaw radio com-
munications and technology
equipment.
Sheriff Whiddon was
pleased with my work and
asked if I would be willing to
come on board at the new fa-
cility with a higher ranked po-


sition. Obviously, the ability to
advance frbm investigator to
major was a good opportunity
for me and a challenge.
What did you have to
do to prepare for the new
position? I requested that I
be allowed to re-attend the
academy as a basic correc-
tions recruit. I was granted that
and went to Lee VoTech in Fort
Myers. I attended a corrections
cross over course. I am now
certified in both law enforce-
ment and corrections with
over 1,000 hours of academic
training.
What is the most won-
derful thing in your life? My

New sheriff's office, jail open


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The new
corrections facilitybuiltin Moore
Haven has a dual purpose. It is
the new Glades County Sheriff's
Office and jail, and it will also
house the U.S. Immigration and
Customs Enforcement detainee
center. Construction began in
May 2006, and now the sheriff's
office and county jail is ready to
open.
From the outside, the facil-
ity looks very ordinary, but no
one has any idea how impres-
sive the new building is on the
inside and look at how it was
designed. The facility was built
to fulfill law enforcement pro-
cedure, securely house crimi-
nals, withstand hurricane force


winds and provide a decent
place for employees towork. It
is more than just a jailhouse.
Major Richard Jones, direc-
tor of operations, gave a tour
of the facility. He led the way
through an extensive floor plan
of offices, corridors, stairways,
dormitories and specialized
rooms. Major Jones carefully
explained the operations and
procedures of the facility.
The communications room
was designed for dispatch and
receiving 911 calls. It is self-
contained with a break room
and restroom so workers can
remain close by when emer-
gencies arise. The area is three
times larger than the communi-
cations room at the old build-
ing.
A much needed forensics


lab will allow the sheriff's office
to conduct its own laboratory
work on collected evidence.
The staff is pleased to have it on
hand, because in the past the
county has had to rely on labs
in other regions and sometimes
it would take a few months to
get results, according to Major
Jones.
The administration and cleri-
cal offices are roomy enough to
hold many cabinets and com-
puter stations. There is a staff
dining room, break room and
locker room with a fitness area
so officers can condition them-
selves to stay in shape for a de-
manding job.
The medical department has
a nurses' station, waiting area,

Effects of drought widespread cafe Tropical


By: Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
The U.S. Drought Monitor
has South Florida rated from
"moderate drought" to "extreme
drought". Last year was the third
driest on record for the entire
state. As the drought continued
into 2007, Lake Okeechobee hit
a record low of 8.89 feet on May
31.
The effects of the continu-
ing drought in Florida are wide-
spread. Water restrictions are in
place across the region. Pastures
are not growing. Large animal
owners have been forced to sup-
'plement their animals' feed with
greater amounts of hay to make
up for the dormant pastures. Un-
fortunately, droughts in the Mid-
west have already affected the
production of hay nationwide
and it is almost impossible to buy
common coastal hay locally, forc-
ing owners to scramble to find
alternative food sources for their
stock.
Even if farmers begin to bale
hay, the majority of it is already
spoken for. So, local feed stores
do not see any relief in sight.
The drought is also affecting
fish and wildlife. According to
Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
officials, there are both positive
and negative effects for the state's
wildlife during this crisis.
"Short-term droughts probably
are more beneficial to freshwater
fish and their habitat than they
are harmful," said Fred Cross, re-
gional freshwater fisheries biolo-
gist in the FWC's regional office
in Panama City. "The drought ex-
poses lake bottoms and dries up
the muck that has accumulated.
Desirable vegetation expands
into deepwater portions of lakes
and rivers, and seeds germinate
on exposed lake bottoms. The
downside to this is that invasive
and exotic .plants like hydrilla
will also make their way into
the deeper water. Droughts also
provide the opportunity to use
prescribed burning to reduce
vegetation in the wetlands, cre-
ating open water habitat which
helps water quality and reduces
the potential for wildfires," stated
Mr. Cross.
"Droughts can increase the

Okeechobee News/Lorna Jablonski
Alligators are on the move in search of water as the drought continues. According to FWC per-
sonnel, they have not become more aggressive. They are simply looking for food and water.


Many different types of wildlife have been affected by the
drought. Animals that usually stay clear of humans are com-
ing closer to civilization looking for food and water. This little
rabbit was rescued by a good-hearted human after being
separated from its mother.


drain lakes. Salinity intrusion may
stress fish. Low water levels can
trap fish, resulting in fish kills
from low dissolved oxygen.
As the water levels drop, boat-
ers should exercise extreme cau-
tion to prevent striking underwa-
ter objects or even the bottom.
Many boat ramps are not usable
due to falling water levels. The
ramps are actually out of the wa-
ter and steep drop-offs and the
end of the ramps can damage
boats and trailers.
Wildlife are suffering from the
lack of water.


"Droughts can be stressful on
most aquatic wildlife, including
alligators," stated Allan Wood-
ward, research administrator at
the FWC's Gainesville Wildlife
Research Lab.
Even though the water re-
cedes, alligators do fairly well be-
cause of the fish, turtles and birds
that become trapped in dry areas.
But, there is also the threat of in-
creased cannibalism.
"Under prolonged droughts,
such as the one we are now ex-
periencing, alligators may be
forced to move in search of water.


Traveling over dry land can cause
increased mortality from motor
vehicles, as well as dehydration.
Smaller alligators may fall prey to
predators during these searches
for water," said Woodward.
Increased movement results
in an increase in nuisance alliga-
tor complaints.
"We have found that there
is no increase in the number
of attacks on humans during
droughts," stated Woodward.
"When moving over dry land, al-
ligators are awkward and out of
their element. They merely want
to find water, which provides
them with security and food."
Hunters are already being
warned of smaller and fewer
yearling deer this fall due to the
droughts.
"This drought has made life
more difficult on these fawns and
their mothers that need extra wa-
ter in their diets while nursing,"
said Scott Johns, district biolo-
gist from the FWC's Olustee Field
Office. "The tips and shoots of
growing plants are a large part of
deer diets during the spring and
summer. This is a favorite deer
food, and without the protein
from these plants, fawn growth
will be delayed and even antler
development in bucks could be
stunted this year."

New lake regulation schedule set


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
There is some relief in sight for
those who have been complain-
ing of large releases of lake water
to the estuaries.
The U.S. Army Corps of Engi-
neers (COE) recently announced
that a new regulation schedule
for Lake Okeechobee will soon
go into effect that addresses this
problem.
Because the present sched-
ule, known as WSE (Water Sup-
ply and Environment), is not
suited to handle persistent high
lake levels like we have had in
recent years and also because of
seepage problems in the Herbert
Hoover Dike, a study was initiated
last year to revise the regulation
schedule.
According to Pete Milam, COE
project manager, under the new
schedule the lake will be man-
aged a foot lower. The extreme


ranges under the WSE are 9.4 feet
to 18.5 feet. Under the proposed
schedule the extremes will be-
tween 8.7 feet and 17.3 feet.
Mr. Milam said one of the goals
of the new schedule was a health-
ier lake. Lower lake levels are bet-
ter for the environment. He said
there was also concern in recent
years about the safety of the Her-
bert Hoover Dike. Therefore, the
decision was made to maintain
the lake at a lower level.
The new system will allow wa-
ter mangers to discharge smaller
amounts of water more often
to the estuaries. Discharges will
be made earlier than under the
present system and in smaller
amounts. This will help the salin-
ity level. Mr. Milan said the Caloo-
sahatchee River needs small re-
leases of fresh water in dry times
to maintain salinity levels.
One of the complaints against
WSE has been that too much ex-
cess water is sent east and west to


the estuaries.
Under WSE the lake would
reach a higher level before water
was released and more water was
released to the estuaries.
However, in extremely wet
years it might still be necessary to
dump excess water into the estu-
aries.
The problem was to balance
the need for lower lake levels
while maintaining water sup-
plies.
"The WSE did not give us
the flexibility to make the right
management decision when wa-
ter levels were too high," said
Colonel Paul Grosskruger, com-
mander of the Jacksonville Dis-
trict of COE in a press release. "To
achieve lower lake water levels,
we had to regularly deviate from
the approved WSE schedule. The
decision paths provided in a new,
approved regulation schedule
should enable us to make deci-
sions to better manage water


levels in and discharges from the
lake. That is why we developed
the new schedule."
The proposed schedule is de-
signed to be an interim schedule.
Mr. Milam said the schedule will
be in place only until 2010. By
that time, plans call for more wa-
ter storage areas to the south. The
additional storage will allow the
schedule to be revised to allow
for some excess water to be sent
south of the lake, relieving the
pressure on the estuaries.
There will be four regional
public meetings before the plan is
put into place. One of those meet-
ings will be held in Okeechobee.
Allowing for the required
amount of time for public review,
the revised schedule should be in
place by November.

Letters to the Editor


Demise of the
Power Plant
I'm sure all Glades Countians
have uttered and heard the trite
saying that covers any misfortune
befalling others, "make lemonade
out of lemons". Well it is time to
practice what we preach. I can't
pretend to be sorry about the loss
of another landfill and the FPL
coal-burning plant. Folks who
know me well have listened to
me expound on the destruction
and the over-development of land
in Florida for many years. When
my husband, now deceased, first
purchased a small piece of land
first purchased a small piece
of land in Glades County over
20 years ago, I had many guilty
feelings about placing a mobile
home, now called a manufac-
tured home, on a canal leading
into the beautiful Caloosahatchee.
After hearing the results of a deci-
sion by county commissioners
who decided there would not be
another septic tank permit issued
on Riverside Drive or any feeder
canals parallel to the river, espe-
cially for manufactured homes, I
was disappointed, but somewhat
relieved. I had fallen in love with
the small town atmosphere and
natural beauty of Glades County.
But that beleaguered state had
enough snow birds already! So
much for our dream of a home in
sunny Florida.
A few weeks later, my uncle,
Jim Diedenharn, who lived on
Gulf Street, phoned me in Ken-
tucky and told me to hurry and
fly down to Glades County for a
commissioner's meeting because
somehow he had convinced the
building code department to is-
sue a variance for one more septic
tank permit. It was a cold Febru-
ary day in Kentucky. I arrived in
Ft. Myers two days later, rented
a convertible and promised the
kind, polite staff in that office that
I would be a good citizen in their
pristine county. I have worked to
keep that promise, but a weak hu-
manoid I am, I haven't rid myself
of materialism and over consum-
erism. Now, please bear with me
while I outline a program to main-
tain our lovely environment and
increase our economic health.
Let's first borrow some ideas
from the tourist laden and sup-
ported Sanibel and Captive Is-
lands. Their citizens and council
members have proven that you
don't need every fast food fran-
chise available in the U.S. These
colorful overabundant eateries
can be on nearly every mile along
Florida highways and cities so
we must make sure our Glades
County and Moore Haven law-
makers pass resolutions that will
not allow them. When they apply,
tell them NO! Repeat and repeat,
"We are the only natural county
in Florida. We want to stay that
way!" Work together to decide
what types of businesses will be


necessary to have a one-of-a kind
natural county. Make sure incom-
ing businesses are environmental-
ly friendly. Educate our politicians
regarding water-saving plumb-
ing, recycled building products
and certified or salvaged wood.
Meet with local school officials
to learn how much environmen-
tal information is included in the
curriculum. Are the agricultural
students being taught sustainable
farming methods? Are the instruc-
tors piquing students' curiosity re-
garding the developing of alterna-
tive fuels, wind energy and solar
. power? Do local lawmakers plan
to limit the size of new homes
due to the large amounts of wa-
ter consumption? Are we search-
ing for entrepreneurs to start their
own small restaurants, gift stores,
book stores, and U.S. produced
clothing stores and service indus-
tries? How about sidewalk cafes
on the riverfront and mom and
pop eateries on the U.S. 27 busi-
ness corridor? We do not need ad-
ditional gas stations in this small
community when there are thou-
sands surrounding us. We have
several along Highway 78 East
and three in Moore Haven. Allow
one or two more in the future, but
refuse to allow huge convenient/
department store gas stations.
If a "big box" store corporation
approaches run the other way!
Advertise that Glades County only
wants small town businesses. Do
you know Florida of the first states
to provide alternative fuel school
buses? (I haven't learned where
however). Keep the county small,
natural and clean. Advertise our
natural beauty. Advertise our hik-
ing trails such as the 108 mile hik-
ing and biking trail on the Hoover
Dike. How many of you are aware
that we sponsor a huge birding
festival each year? Dozens of local
volunteers work to conduct these
educational and fun get-togeth-
ers that help count and identify
our native bird population. Did
you know that Florida has at least
five bird species that will soon be
extinct? Look for canoe/kayak
enthusiasts for a rental business.
Search for an entrepreneur who
would like to rent tricycles and bi-
cycles for a city touring. Advertis-
ing could include a promise that
you can bike on our streets with-
out being run down by thousands
of speeding cars and trucks. (I
hope we will change the alphabet
streets to more charming names.)
Advertise in business and profes-
sional magazines that we have
openings for two or three small
hotels. Make sure that all prospec-
tive businesses document their
promise to stay energy and water
efficient. Encourage people to
leave their natural land in a trust
that will ensure it will not be de-
veloped. This is not being selfish.
This is planning a quality life for
our .children, grandchildren and
pll future generations. More busi-
nesses will come when they see
that we are serious about our low


profile and stress free quality of
life.
Please allow me one more trite
saying. If a person wants a job
badly enough, they will find it. For
employment opportunities try our
fine school system, local govern-
ment offices that strive to help and
provide that vital personal touch,
a competent constantly improv-
ing sheriffs department resulting
in low crime rates, a prompt and
caring utility company. (We have
power during most hurricanes
when most around us do not),
family and minority owned small
businesses, farms, ranches, and
an agricultural service industry.
Try finding these qualities in large
densely populated areas.
Our advertising copy could in-
clude these words; we are individ-
ualistic, we are original, we care
about our land, we are Glades
County! I know that by staying
true to these practices, our county
will be one in a thousand and will
be visited by curious tourists for
decades. This will be our iden-
tity forever. The key word will be
"unique".
Anne (Deuschle) Coffey

Submitted for the
Congressional Record
It gives me great pleasure to
acknowledge the brave men and
women of my district. Recently
there was an outbreak of fires
along Lake Okeechobee, Florida's
largest lake. The fires started on
May 27, along the Pierce Canal in
Glades County, Florida. Boundary
fires were created to protect the
area.
Glades County EMS Director,
Bob Jones, coordinated the mis-
sion and had everyone in place.
Glades County Sheriff Stuart Whid-
don made his deputies available
to help. Lighted signs were posted
on the road and volunteers went
house to house to warn people of
the fires. The highway was closed
and one family had to evacuate
due to health reasons. Glades
County was in constant contact
with the State of Florida EMS and
the Red Cross was on stand by.
No one was taken to the hospital
or needed EMS assistance during
the six days the fire burned.
Glades County is made up of
all volunteer fire departments.
Firefighters from Glades County
Communities Buckhead Ridge,
Lakeport, Moore Haven, Palm-
dale, Ortona and Muse respond-
ed.. These men and women were
on site 24 hours a day. In order to
protect the area, the volunteers
inhaled smoke, as well as be-
ing surrounded by threatening
flames. ,They were assisted by
neighboring Lee County Depart-
ments San Carlos, Port Authority,
Bonita Springs, North Fort Myers,
Estero, Fort Myers City, Bayshore,
Cape Coral and the Seminole Fire
Department Brighton which is
part of Glades County.


I commend Glades County
Manager Wendell Taylor, Deputy
County Manager, Larry Hilton,
and the members of the Glades
County Commission, Butch Jones,
Chairman, Paul Beck, Vice Chair-
man, Donna Starter Long, Russell
Echols, and Bob Geisler for their
presence and constant concern
for the citizens of Glades County.
EMS as well as other Glades Coun-
ty staff were present and lending a
helping hand. Many firefighters
lost days of pay in order to fulfill
their obligation to the residents of
Glades County.
Glades County is one of eight
counties in my district; it is 752
square land miles of beautiful
countryside and waterways. The
majority of the county is agricul-
tural with only 11,000 residents.
Glades County may be one of
the poorest counties in the district,
but the people who live and work
there are what makes it rich.
Honorable Tim Mahoney,
FL-16

Disappointed
in verdict
Dear Editor;
The trial that was held in Glades
County court house on June 8
and ending on June 9, was very
disappointing to say the least. As I
heard about the not-guilty verdict,
I thought to myself, "Justice was
given a big black eye today."
To me this was a mockery
to the Judicial System. I won-
dered how could the six jurors
not see that this was a clear
case of manslaughter to say the
least. When a person shoots at
someone with a deadly weap-
on playing a stupid gun game
not to mention he was admit-
tedly drinking, how could you
possibly think that it was just an
accident?
When a person kills some
one while driving drunk, are
you not responsible? What
about shooting a weapon
while drunk, playing stupid gun
games?
The question is not did he
do this on purpose? But is as
plain as the nose on your face
that this was out and out care-
lessness.
His careless action took the
life of a man that had parents
and two minor children not to
mention other family that will
carry this with them the rest of
their lives.
Regardless of who put the
real bullet in it, the defendant
was the one who pulled the
trigger. How and why did it
happen? Well you don't play
with guns when you are so-
ber, much less when you are
drunk.
So how can anyone justify a
not guilty verdict?
So like I say, this is just as
bad as driving drunk.

PALM BEACH Beginning
July 16, construction on the Ev-
erglades Agricultural Area (EAA)
Reservoir is expected to cause
travel delays along a seven mile
stretch of U.S. 27 in Palm Beach
County, about 15 miles south of
South Bay. Drivers are encouraged
to use alternate routes including
1-595, 1-95, the Florida Turnpike,
S.R. 80 and 1-75 while the con-
struction continues over the next
six months (click here for map of
alternative routes)
Engineers and explosives tech-
nicians will begin blasting through
seven feet of rock and soil layers
within 150 feet of the highway's
western edge to create a seep-
age canal that will surround the
planned reservoir. For safety rea-
sons, all four lanes of U.S. 27 will
be closed during blasting. Experts
in electronic detonation plan to


set off charges Mondays through
Friday with road closures ex-
pected each day from 11 a.m. to
2 p.m. Construction will continue
for at least six months.
Alternate routes will be iden-
tified on Florida Department of
Transportation signs posted in
South Bay on U.S. 27, Belle Glade
on S.R. 872 (heading South) and
at the intersection of Interstate 75
and U.S. 27, north of Alligator Al-
ley.
The EAA Reservoir is an Ev-
erglades restoration project of
the South Florida Water Manage-
ment District. With a capacity of
190,000 acre-feet or 62 billion
gallons, the aboveground res-
ervoir will store water released
from Lake Okeechobee, reduce
harmful freshwater discharges
to coastal estuaries and capture
stormwater runoff from the Ever-

MIAMI The State Board of
Education recently established
the 2005-06 Voluntary Prekinder-
garten (VPK) Provider Kindergar-
ten minimum readiness rate. All
VPK providers that earned a read-
iness rate of greater than 200 (201
or higher) out of 300 possible
points are considered satisfactory
providers of the VPK program. Of
the 3,772 VPK providers, 3,216
providers scored above the mini-
mum rate. This is the first time the
State Board has set a VPK mini-
mum readiness rate.
"The establishment of the
minimum readiness rates by the
State Board of Education allows
parents to assess a provider's per-
formance based on results," said
Education Commissioner Jeanine
Blomberg. "VPK is a powerful
tool that provides children with
a firm foundation for increased
success through their academic
career."
Low-performing providers are
required to submit an improve-
ment plan to their early learn-
ing coalition or school district by
August 21. Support will be avail-
able to low-performing providers
through the Early Learning Coali-
tions, Department of Education,
Agency for Workforce Innova-
tion, Department of Children and
Families, community colleges and
private provider networks. Provid-
ers identified as low performing
for three consecutive years will


no longer be eligible to provide
the VPK program. This year, 556
providers scored below the mini-
mum rate.
Final 2005-06 VPK Provider
Kindergarten Readiness Rates
were announced last week fol-
lowing a two-week period for
providers to submit disputes to
the Department of Education.
Parents and other interested per-.
sons can check a searchable, on-
line database with readiness rate
reports for individual VPK provid-
ers at https://vpk.fldoe.org/.
VPK Provider Kindergarten
Readiness Rates include only
the results of children who par-
ticipated in VPK during 2005-06.
The rate is based on the scores of
children who attended VPK and
who participated in the Florida
Kindergarten Readiness Screener
(FLKRS) a screening instru-
ment given to children within the
first 30 days of kindergarten. The
FLKRS is administered by district
public schools to all public school
kindergarten children. Children
who participated in VPK and at-
tended a non-public school for
kindergarten were also provided
the opportunity to participate in
the screening.
Not all providers received read-
iness rates. Readiness rates were
only calculated for providers with
a minimum of four children who
were enrolled in the VPK program
for 85 percent or more of the total


instructional hours and participat-
ed in each of the three kindergar-
ten screening measures.
Final readiness rates indicate
that children who participated in
the state's Voluntary Prekinder-
garten (VPK) Education program
performed better on the FLKRS
than children who did not par-
ticipate in the program. Further,
children who attended the VPK
program less than 85 percent of
the time still scored higher on the
FLKRS screening measures than
children who had no exposure to
the program.

Florida's VPK program is joint-
ly administered by the Depart-
ment of Education, the Agency
for Workforce Innovation, and the
Department of Children and Fam-
ilies. The Department of Educa-
tion oversees standards, curricula
and professional development;
the Agency for Workforce Inno-
vation administers the day-to-day
operations of the program includ-
ing policy development, financial
management and oversight of
the 31 Early Learning Coalitions;
and the Department of Children
and Families provides oversight
of child care licensing, regulation,
Florida's Gold Seal Quality Care
program and issues credentials
for child care personnel.

Rates, visit https://vpk.fldoe.org/.


Community colleges celebrate 50 years


TALLAHASSEE This month,
Florida's Community College Sys-
tem celebrated its 50th anniver-
sary. Since 1957, the Community
College System has been provid-
ing Floridians increased access
to postsecondary education and
workforce training opportunities.
A celebration commemorating
this impressive milestone was
held earlier this month and at-
tended by Lt. Governor Jeff Kott-
kamp, an Edison Community Col-
lege alumnus, among others.
"Governor Crist and I congratu-
late Florida's Community College
System on 50 years of excellence
in education," said Lt. Governor
Kottkamp. "As a graduate of one of
Florida's outstanding community
colleges, I experienced firsthand
the world-class academic pro-
grams that support and strength-
en Florida's economic growth
and development by expanding
access to higher education, pre-
paring students to enter the state
university system and providing
workforce education programs to
meet the evolving needs of local
communities,"
During the past 50 years, Flor-
ida's Community College System
has made a number of notable
accomplishments. Some high-
lights of these accomplishments
include:
Increased access to postsec-
ondary education, in particular for
underserved populations.
Continued expansion of four-
year degree programs and work-


force education opportunities.
Development of on-campus
partnerships with traditional four-
year colleges and universities.
Creation of partnerships with
major business organizations.
Development of bachelor's
degrees targeted to high-demand,
critical-shortage areas in Florida's
workforce.
"Florida's community colleges
are proud to be the major point of
entry to higher education in the
state for over 800,000 students
each year," said Community Col-
leges Chancellor DavidArmstrong.
"Thanks to the support of our
state's leaders and the Legislature,
record funding increases (more
than 41 percent) over the past 10
years are providing increased ac-
cess, and a passport to the Ameri-
can Dream for students who need
to get a high-quality, affordable
education- close to home."
Making postsecondary oppor-
tunities even more accessible for
those pursuing higher education
is an important goal for commu-
nity colleges. Florida's Commu-
nity College System will continue
its focus on this goal by:
Increasing first-rate technol-
ogy and distance learning options.
Florida's community colleges cur-
rently offer nearly 14,000 distance
learning courses and this number
will continue to grow.
Increasing access to higher
education, particularly for under-
served populations via special
partnerships and specific work-


force-oriented baccalaureate de-
grees.
Continuing their commit-
ment to affordability and vigor-
ously pursuing increased access
to financial aid.
Renewing their commitment
to student retention, success and
completion via surveys and other
data collection means.
Growth in facilities, class-
rooms, and labs to meet capac-
ity demands and requirements of
new technology.
Another important goal for the
future of community colleges is
the continued emphasis on high-
quality, relevant educational op-
portunities for students in both
university transfer and career/
technical programs. This will be
accomplished by:
Moving to more competen-
cy-based learning with identifica-
tion of specific student learning
outcomes for all majors. +
Improving "'seamlessness"
and collaboration with the K-12
public education system to en-
sure improved college-readiness,
a decreased need for remediation,
and greater postsecondary enroll-
ments.
Simplifying the transition
process for K-12 and technical
centers to community colleges to
universities.
Increasing efforts to better
align learning opportunities and
programs with the economic and
operational needs of local and
state business and industry.

have to decide if it is going to be fried or smoked. These fishermen are by the Caloosa-

Grandpa's land was on Fisheating Creek


By Ralph Wadlow as told
to Carroll Wadlow
Edited by
MaryAnn Morris
INI
Early Florida was an adventure
for all who came here, so when
information comes to light from
those who have now passed on,
we like to share with our read-
ers. The Wadlow family troubled
by the depression in Indiana and
the mother's health, came to
Florida, thinking it couldn't' be
any worse.
"Mother, Dad and 1 crossed the
Edison Bridge at about 2 p.m. on
December 16, 1932. From Tampa
to Ft. Myers we had travelled the
Tamiami Trail in the pouring rain.
'Look,' Mother pointed. 'It says
Thomas Edison Bridge, but hasn't
a single light.'
"Not even the rain could dim
the beauty of the street into
which we turned. Stately royal
palms lined both sides in either
direction. White picket fences en-
closed well kept lawns. Here was
a red brick mansion trimmed in
marble, there a quaint white
church, even a large white hotel
weather boarded and generously
trimmed with gingerbread all over
its broad verandas. A little farther
on we saw a sign, 'M. Flossie Hill
Co., the Ladies' Trading Place.'
'Stop here,' my mother called
from the backseat and she
climbed out of the car. 'We need
an umbrella.' But she was back
almost instantly.
'They have no umbrellas: they
say it never rains in the winter!'
The Boston Store was almost
across the street and they provid-
ed us with an umbrella.
'We had parked in front of busi-
nesses the likes of which we had
never seen. The entire fronts were
open to the sidewalk, with folding
doors pushed all the way back on
each side. There was a fruit stand,
Schlossberg"s ten-cent store, Pix-
ton Schultz Drugstore and appar-
ently, a land office. Their propri-
etors had become interested in us
by now. Our Essex Four sported
an Indiana license plate. Our
folding cots, quilts and tent were
stored in the back behind the
spare tire. A wooden box on the
running board held out cooking
utensils and food supplies, open-
ing out into a sort of table or work
counter.
"James H. Ragsdale came to-
ward us with hands extended,

The Wadlow's palmetto-thatched house in Palmdale, 1934,
creaked and groaned through hurricanes, but it never leaked.

"Not even the rain could dim the beauty of the street
into which we turned. Stately .royal palms lined
both sides in either direction. White picket fences
enclosed well kept lawns. Here was a red brick
mansion trimmed in marble, there a quaint white
church, even a large white hotel weather boarded
and generously trimmed with gingerbread all over
its broad verandas. A little farther on we saw a sign,
'M. Flossie Hill Co., the Ladies' Trading Place.'


presenting himself as a real estate
broker and promising to show us
excellent land to buy. We told hirrI
we already had 20 acres on Fish-
eating Creek in Glades County,
east of Palmdale and hoped he
could direct us toward it.
'My grandfather, William Fer-
dinand Weiss, of Springfield,
Missouri, had offered us the use
of his land near Palmdale when
my mother's arthritis had flared
and her doctor advised that she
coome to a warm climate. Both
my father, Clyde V. Wadlow and
I had been laid off in the depres-
sion crunch, so we all three de-
cided to come down and starve
together in the sun..
"Thankfully, this turned out to
be an overstatement, just barely. I
was 23 years old.
"Mr. Ragsdale started us east.
We turned around and went out
over Billy's Creek, leaving the
paving behind and proceeded to


LaBelle on a shell road, then by
sand Road 27, until we finally saw
a few structures in the distance.
Palmdale at last!
"Old Man Waggoner stood on
his store porch.
'No,' he said, 'this is Citrus
Center. It is too late to make Palm-
dale tonight.' He opened the gate
alongside his store and waved
us into the Citrus Center Camp
Ground Trailer Park, which was
just an open field. As we rolled
through the gate, I heard a terrible
noise and felt an awful jolt. I did
not call attention to it then and we
went on in, bedded down for the
night as usual, in out tent and on
our cots.
"As soon as Mother and Dad
were asleep, I took the flashlight
and crawled under the car to find
that five of the six universal-bolts

ments. There was Henry Ran-

road and he sold me five bolts for
25 cents. As soon as they were in
place, we were ready to roll and
headed for Palmdale Post Office
where we picked up our mail
forwarded from our residence,
Evansville, Indiana. One of the
letters was from the Evansville
bank where our last $200 was
on deposit; sadly, we found out
it had closed (Banks often folded
during the Depression.) Dad had
a five dollar bill and I had a half
dollar, which I got changed into
two quarters so I could each of

The Glades County Sheriff's Of-
fice contracted with Armor Cor-
rectional Health Services, Inc. to
provide general health and men-
tal health care. Altogether they
will have more than 16 full time
medical staff, and are contracting
with local physicians.
The facility contains its own
kitchen and laundry area which
has a regular staff and additional
inmate workers. A commissary
room allows inmates to purchase
items like toothpaste, and a law
library provides research on legal
issues.
There is an expansive, secure
corridor which leads to the dor-
mitory pods. The interior of the
dorms are finished in colors of
white and grey with fixtures of
stainless steel and neutral tile. The
secure windows are built high up
on the wall and provide bright, in-
direct sunlight.
The huge metal doors are
green with a horizontal slot that
has a hinged, locked lid. When
a corrections officer arrives to es-
cort someone, the inmate must
put his back against the door with
his hands thrust into the slot so
the officer can put cuffs on them
before the door is opened.
Security measures equal safety
for staff and the incarcerated. An
armory is secured and monitored,
and card proximity readers let a
corrections staff member in and
out. of secure areas. A housing

Central control is the brain cen-
ter for the entire operation, and all
actions and directions are initiated
in this office.
"If anything happens in this
jail, it originates here," said Major
Jones.
A grand opening was held on
June 22 where federal, state and
local officials got their first look
at the facility. Senator Dave Aron-
berg and Mike Rosas of Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement
(ICE) spoke briefly at the ribbon
cutting ceremony.
Alvin Ward, GCDC chairman,


and Stuart Whiddon, Glades
County Sheriff, told visitors how
the former sheriff, the late Jim
Rider, was instrumental in the cre-
ation of the facility.
"I would like to thank Mrs.
Rider, for without Jim this would
have never happened," said Sher-
iff Stuart Whiddon.
An open house for the gen-
eral public was held June 23. The
county jail facility will be open for
business in early July. Immigra-
tion and Customs Enforcement
will begin operations in the near
future.

sparsely populated territory. The
Everglades, before drainage was
attempted by the state of Florida,
had been one of the most inacces-
sible and impenetrable regions in
America.
Such, a storm, according to
the U.S. Weather Bureau, may be
expected to occur only once in a
century. This was the instrument
of destruction.
With the present condition of
the dike, citizens remain fearful
'that the ghosts of that past storm
could come back. The similarities
are there.
Dike gives way
The banshee wailings of a si-
ren in the night, the gusty blasts
of an approaching hurricane, the
clatter of hurrying boots in dark
streets, and the despairing cry ...
"The dike is giving way!"
These were the signals for a di-
saster such as Lake Okeechobee
had never experienced. Moore
,Haven, the big lake's first and larg-
est town, was facing destruction.
Scores of its citizens would
never see the light of another day.
This was to be a fateful pre-
view, a small foretaste of the far
greater disaster which the lake
would experience two years later,
almost to the day. This was also
'the day which saw the burgeon-
ing city of Miami laid to waste.
The date was Sept. 18, 1926.

This hurricane roared in from the
Caribbean, devastating the city of
Miami, striking a fatal blow to its
fabulous, but already staggering
real estate boom. In the Miami-
Fort Lauderdale area the death toll
was an estimated 223, some 6,000
injured and property damage in
Miami alone $27 million.
The horror of the details are all
but unbelievable. Lawrence Will's
descriptions are vivid and painful.
He tells the story in plain, every
day language.
The full fury of the hurricane
broke by mid morning and the
waters from the lake were pour-
ing through Moore Haven like
rushing rivers, the air filled with
driving rain, the crests of waves
and flying debris. Some houses
had 'disappeared while others
were slowly floating out of sight.
Engineer Fred A. Flanders,
long time resident of Moore Ha-
ven said, "Friday, Sept. 17 was
stormy and ugly but with no in-
dication of what would happen
in the next 24 hours. I received a
telegram from the Miami Weather
Bureau stating briefly that a hur-
ricane was due to hit the coast in
the vicinity of Miami. That was all.
That constituted the sole warning
of the impending tragedy. None of
us knew what to expect."

breeze had increased in inten-

to come events in the Everglades
were to be calculated. It was also
the last day of life for almost 2,000
people on the southeastern shores
of Lake Okeechobee.
The lake itself was an inland
sea, more than 700 square miles
in area, rimmed by an earthen
dike a true setting for disaster.
This book is the third edition of
"Okeechobee Hurricane And The
Hoover Dike," revised, enlarged
and indexed, containing a full ac-
count of the Belle Glade Hurricane
Disaster on Lake Okeechobee in
1928 as well as the tragic storm at
Moore Haven in 1926.
Over 200 pages, the book fea-
tures vivid photographs of these
disasters throughout. The author,
Lawrence Elmer Will, experi-
enced the hurricanes himself and
was in the center of the ones de-
scribed in this book.
First hand knowledge of the
original lake shore levee was
gained from his being an operator
of a floating dredge which erected
a large part of its length.
Lawrence Will dedicated this
book to Herbert Hoover in these
words:
"His inspiration and leader-
ship contributed so much to the
safety and peace of minds, when
the storm winds blow, of us
who live on the shores of Lake
Okeechobee."

Independence Day Declaration of Dependence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Call me sentimental, but I still
believe in baseball, mom and ap-
ple pie. Something still happens
to me when I see people waving
flags and hear
patriotic songs
being sung. Call
me optimistic,
but I still believe
in one nation
under God. In .
God I still trust. .. .
For us, the :
Fourth of July is a John
day in on which Hicks
we declared that
we are an independent people, a
sovereign nation. The Declaration
of Independence was adopted
231 years ago next Wednesday.
Permit me to share some of those


words with you:
"We hold these truths to be
self-evident, that all men are cre-
ated equal, that they are endowed
by their Creator with certain un-
alienable rights, that among these
are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of
Happiness...
We, therefore, the Represen-
tatives of the United States of
America, in General Congress,
assembled, appealing to the Su-
preme Judge of the world for the
rectitude of our intentions, do, in
the Name, and by Authority of the
good People of these Colonies,
solemnly publish and declare,
That these United Colonies are,
and of right ought to be free and
independent states...
And for the support 'of this
declaration, with a firm reliance
on the protection of divine provi-
dence, we mutually pledge to


each other our lives, our fortunes
and our sacred honor."
It was a Declaration of In-
dependence around which the
people rallied. But in that Decla-
ration of Independence there was
a declaration of dependence not
upon the British government and
King George, but upon God and
upon each other.
Their arguments depended
upon God's natural order we
are created free. The authority
behind these wonderful words
we celebrate came from God.
The founders of this great nation
needed God's authority to declare
their independence.
I believe the colonists trusted
God. I believe that you trust God
too and I believe that if we re-
member that we are dependent
upon God, He will use us to make
fireworks happen not just on the


fourth of July, but every day.
You see, I still expect fireworks.
I still expect miracles. I still expect
excitement and enthusiasm, heal-
ing and conversion. I expect fire-
works to happen every time God
calls us and sends us out. I expect
my faith and my church to make
a difference in my world. And I
want you to expect it, too!
Where would we be today if
the founders of our nation hadn't
exercised the authority God gave
them to declare liberty? Where
would we be today if the disciples
of Jesus hadn't used the authority
God gave them to proclaim God's
truth in the world? Where will the
world be tomorrow if we go forth
to change our world, depending
upon God for our strength and
our vision and taking the author-
ity God has given us? Imagine the
possibilities!

The coming holiday: July Fourth and a special freedom


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
We're coming up on another
holiday; Independence Day. July
seems to be a month when other
countries celebrate their "Inde-
pendence Days" too; France,.Can-
ada, Jamaica and some others
that have come into being during
a hot summer month along with
the United States.
This year, the day falls in the
middle of the week and will be
celebrated between two week-
ends. I like to take time on holi-
days to reflect on their meaning
and all of the implications for oth-
ers and myself; and at this time to
especially think about the rights
and freedoms we enjoy. One,
of course, is the freedom of reli-
gion.
History is full of times when
that freedom wasn't available
to people in different parts of
the world; today is one of those
times. There are still parts of the
world where people are persecut-
ed for their religious beliefs. Not
too long ago, a man was declared
"mentally insane" so he could
leave his native country and not
be put to death and all because
he had changed his religion.
Civil wars are being fought
with people identifying with one


religious faction or another; remi-
niscent of the Crusades in the
Middle Ages. My belief is that we
in the Western World have risen,
matured, grown in our under-
standing of God and have got-
ten beyond the persecution and
damage done in our past but is
still going 'on
in the name of
their religion. 1
look with sad-
ness at parts of
the world where
wars go on or
people are pun-.
ished because
of someone's Samuel S.
notion of reli- Thomas
gious "infidel-
ity." On the other hand, we may
be abusing our religious freedom
in another way; ignoring our
right to exercise it. What should
be, "We respect the right of all
to believe as they wish," seems
to be, "You don't have to believe
in anything," and with it comes
the notion, "You don't have to do
anything about it."
I grew up in a state (Pennsyl-
vania) where religious freedom
was a part of the historic founda-
tions. William Penn (the name of
the state means "Penn's Woods")
was a persecuted Quaker and
knew what the meaning of reli-
gious freedom meant. His colony


was chartered to make sure that
people were free to believe in the
God they knew and he welcomed
all to bring their own expressions
to his colony. The idea spread and
has been a part of our heritage
ever since.
Unfortunately, I see the free-
dom stifled; in other parts of the
world as I watch the news, but
also at home by neglect. People
are acutely aware of the loss of
freedom of assembly or free-
dom of speech; the freedom of
religion is more subtle. It is lost
when people no longer think God
is important or at work in their
lives; it is lost when people fail to
stand up for what they believe;
lost when people no longer fol-
low their consciences when they
make choices and it is lost when
we have something but don't use
Sit; we might as well not have it at
all.
The Christian mandate
is that we are "doers of the
word..."(James 1:22) lest we lose
something at the heart of our life,
our being, our country. I like to
stop and think about how we've
come into being; how we've
made it through the hard times;
wars, depression, internal strife,
corruption and upheavals, and
have been able to continue be-
cause I believe God has been
there with us.


I find it sad that we don't thank
Him more than we do, but that
seems to be a part of our nature.
Jesus knew about that: He healed
ten lepers and only one stopped
to thank Him afterward (Luke
17:11 19). My prayer is that, on
the Fourth of July this year, we
may be the ones who stop and
thank Him for His guidance and
all that He does and has done for
us as a people and nation. Thanks
be to God we have the freedom
to thank Him.

witnessing the acceptance event.

Trust bequeaths home to museum


CLEWISTON The Marjorie
Kelly Trust has donated the late
Mrs. Marjorie H. Kelly's residence
to The Clewiston Museum. Mrs.
Kelly, who died recently, had stip-
ulated that her home should be
given to Museum. Mrs. Kelly had
been a major benefactor of the
Museum during her lifetime.


"Marjprie Kelly, through her
past giving and this final gift, has
essentially provided the funds we
needed to purchase our current
property, Museum Chairman Mill-
er Couse said. Proceeds from this
home will allow us to retire the
remaining mortgage debt on our
building." Mr. Couse added, "We


will be forever indebted to Mrs.
Kelly and entire Kelly family for
their unwavering support of our
Museum." The deed for the prop-
erty was presented by Successor
Trustees Alden Wyse, Peggy Jo
McEwen (Mrs. Kelly's niece) and
John Perry, Sr.

As we are celebrating the birth
of our Nation, I believe the follow-
ing poem is very pertinent:
I've pondered a question that
searches my soul, yet, no answer
seems clearly defined;
"Will history record that Amer-
ica survived, the seething unrest
of our time?"
Or have we as a Nation, finally
arrived, at the crest of the moun-
tain we climb;
With nothing left to be written
of us, but the tragedy of a nation's
decline?

It has happed to EVERY great
nation before, NOT ONE avoided
the curse:
And there's no assurance that
we are exempt, their fate could
be ours or worse!
Wake up! America, we shout
in despair, as we view the torment
of change;
Crime in the streets warfare
against law, Perversion and filth
born of greed!
"Must we eat our own flesh -
and drink our own blood, to as-
suage this great lust to destroy?


For the right to dissent and the
will to reject, what has made us
- Whatever, we are?"
God forbid! The price is too
great to be paid, by those who are
yet to be born;
Let's give them a chance that
our fathers gave us, in a nation,
UNITED and STRONG!
"STAND UP! AMERICA!"...let
your voices be heard, reject those
who destroy with their hate;
God can bless this great land,
if TOGETHER we stand, let's us
pray we're not already too late!

NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING
FOR ADOPTION OF A NON-AD VALOREM ASSESSMENT ROLL
BY THE
EVERGLADES AGRICULTURAL AREA ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION DISTRICT

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Everglades Agricultural Area Environmental Protection
District (the ADISTRICT@) intends to hold a Public Hearing on Friday, July 13, 2007 at
approximately 9:30 a.m. during the District's Annual Landowners' Meeting, in Commission
Chambers, Belle Glade City Hall, 110 Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard, West, Belle Glade, FL
33430, for the purpose of adopting its 2007 / 2008 Non-Ad Valorem Assessment.

The DISTRICT proposes to levy a five dollars ($5.00) per-acre assessment on each acre
of land within the boundaries of the DISTRICT. This Is an increase of $2.00 per acre over the
amount that has been levied by the DISTRICT in the past year and it is contemplated that the
DISTRICT will be continuing this same assessment year to year. The total revenue proposed
to be collected by this assessment is $2,502,522.00.

All property owners that own land within the DISTRICT have the right to appear and be heard
at the Public Hearing and also the right to file written objections to their proposed assessment with
the DISTRICT within twenty (20) days of the publication of this notice. Please be advised that if a
property owner decides to appeal any decision made with respect to any matter considered at the
Public Hearing, the property owner will need to ensure, at the property owner's own expense, that
a verbatim record of the proceedings is made and that the record includes the testimony and
evidence upon which the property owner's appeal is based.

Following the DISTRICT'S adoption of its non-ad valorem assessment roll, the DISTRICT will
certify its roll in accordance with Chapter 197, Florida Statutes, to the Palm Beach County, Glades
County and Hendry County Tax Collectors for inclusion of the assessments, as a separate line item,
in the affected property owner's annual real property tax bill. Please be advised that, as in the past,
failure to pay this assessment will cause a tax certificate to be issued against the property which may
result in a loss of title.

This notice is published as a requirement of Florida Law. We apologize if this notice causes
any confusion to an affected property owner, but the DISTRICT must follow certain statutorily
imposed conditions as to the information that must be shown in this notice. In order to assist you
in answering any questions you may have regarding information contained in this notice, the
DISTRICT would appreciate your either writing to the DISTRICT at 324 Royal Palm Way, Suite 300,
Palm Beach, Florida 33480, Attention: Charles F. Schoech; calling the DISTRICT at (561) 655-0620;
or, E-Mailing the DISTRICT at schoech@caldwellpacetti.com.

CITY OF SOUTH BAY
PWS D1#4501911
2006 ANNUAL DRINKING WATER
QUALITY REPORT
Este informed continent information muy important sobre su agua beber. TradOscalo 6 able con un amigo quien Io entlenda blen.
We're pleased to present to you this year's Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. This report is designed to inform you about the quality water and services we deliver to you every day. Our constant goal is to provide you with a safe and
dependable supply of drinking water. We want you to understand the efforts we make to continually Improve the water treatment process and protect our water resources. We are committed to ensuring the quality of your water. If you
have any questions or concerns about the information provided in this report, please feel free to call any of the numbers listed.
WHERE YOUR WATER COMES FROM
The water source for the City of South Bay is surface water that Is withdrawn from the Lake Okeechobee Border Canal. The water is treated by aeration, lime softening, coagulants and filtration. Finally, the water is disinfected using
chlorine before it is delivered to the customers.
HOW WE ENSURE YOUR DRINKING WATER IS SAFE
The City of South Bay routinely monitors for contaminants in your drinking water according to Federal and State laws, rules, and regulations. Except where indicated otherwise, this report is based on the results of our monitoring for the
period of January 1 to December 31, 2006. The state allows us to monitor for some contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants do not change frequently. Some of the data in the water
quality summary table are more than one year old but are based on the most recent water analyses performed and are representative of the water quality.
HOW TO READ THE TABLE
The terms used in the water quality summary table and in other parts of this report are defined below.
Action level (AL) the concentration of a contaminant which, if exceeded, triggers treatment or other requirements that a water system must follow.
Maximum contaminant level or MCL the highest level of a contaminant that is allowed in drinking water. MCLs are set as close to the MCLGs as feasible using the best available treatment technology.
Maximum contaminant level goal or MCLG the level of a contaminant in drinking water below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MCLGs allow for a margin of safety.
Maximum residual disinfectant level or MRDL the highest level of a disinfectant allowed in drinking water. There is convincing evidence that addition of a disinfectant is necessary for control of microbial contaminants.
Maximum residual disinfectant level goal or MRDLG the level of a drinking water disinfectant below which there is no known or expected risk to health. MRDLGs do not reflect the benefits of the use of disinfectants to control
microbial contaminants.
N/A not applicable
ND means not detected and indicates that the substance was not found by laboratory analysis.
ppm parts per million or milligrams per liter is one part by weight of analyte to one million parts by weight of the water sample.
ppb parts per billion or micrograms per liter is one part by weight of analyte to one billion parts by weight of the water sample.
pCI/I picocuries per liter is a measure of the radioactivity in water

ADDITIONAL HEALTH INFORMATION
The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally occurring
minerals and, in some cases, radioactive material, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity.
Contaminants that may be present in source water include:
A Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife.
Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming.
Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses.
Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and
septic systems.
(E) Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities.
In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, the EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in aater provided by public water systems. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regulations establish
limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health.
Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. More
information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency's Safe Drinking Water Hotline at

CONCURRENT NOTICE (07.02)
Notice to the Public of:
Finding of No Significant Impact on the Environment, and
Request for Release of Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions
Recipient: City of Clewiston Date: June 28,2007
Address: 115 West Ventura Avenue Telephone Number: (863) 983-1484
Clewiston, Florida 33440
TO ALL INTERESTED AGENCIES, GROUPS AND PERSONS:
The City of Clewiston intends to undertake a FY 2006 Economic Development pro-
ject that will be funded by the Florida Small Ciies Community Development Block
Grant program:
To construct 4,043 square yards of street improvements and associated drainage In
the Clewiston Commerce Park on behalf of PranaSleep, LLC, who will create 20
new full-time jobs for residents of the City and surrounding Hendry County.
Although the project is located in the 500 year floodplain, no part of the project is in
a wetland. The improvements cannot be undertaken in any other location due to
the selection of the site by the private businesses and the need for the Infrastruc-
ture to support the new business. There are no practicable alternatives.
The proposed improvements conform to applicable State floodplain protection stan-
dards and are part of the City's long range floodplain management plan. The pro-
posed actions will not affect natural or beneficial floodplain values, and the
residents of the City will benefit from this project. The engineer for the project will
ensure that any necessary mitigation measures will be taken, if applicable, to
minimize adverse impacts to the environment.
Additional agencies involved in this project include the State of Florida Department of
Community Affairs and the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
The anticipated permitting agencies include City of Clewiston; Hendry County
Health Department, and South Florida Water Management District and any other
permitting agencies as applicable.
An environmental review of the project has been conducted in accordance with 24
CFR 58, and it has been determined that the activities will have no significant im-
pact on the environment. Therefore, an Environment Impact Statement (EIS), as
descrAed in the National Environmental Policy Act, will not be prepared. Specific
reason for finding of no significant impact and decision not to prepare an EIS is
that the project will not significantly affect the quality of the human environment.
No further environmental review of the project will be conducted.
An Environmental Review Record (ERR), which documents the environmental re-
view of the project, is on file at the City of Clewiston's City Manager's Office, 115
West Ventura Avenue, Clewiston, Flonda 33440 and is available for public ex-
amination. All Interested parties are invited to submit written comments to the at-
tention of the Mr, Wendell Johnson, City Manager, City of Clewlston, 115 West
Ventura Avenue, Clewiston, Florida 33440,. Written comments must be received
on or before Monday, July 16, 2007. All comments will be considered, and no
administrative action will be taken until comments are resolved.
The project described above will be funded with Florida Small Cities Community De-
velopment Block Grant funds for FY 2006 projects in the category of Economic
Development from the State of Florida and the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban development (HUD), under Title I of the Housing and Community Develop-
ment Act. The City of Clewiston is certifying to the State and to HUD that, its chief
elected official an/or designee, in his or her official capacity, consents to accept
the urisdicton of the federal courts if an action is brought to enforce respon-
siblities related to environmental reviews, decision making, and action; and that
these responsibilities have been satisfied. The legal effect of the certification Is
that upon approval, the City of Clewiston may expend CDBG funds and the State
and HUD witl have satisfied their responsibilities under the National Environmental
Policy Act.
The City of Clewiston anticipates that its Certification and Request for Release of
Funds and Removal of Environmental Conditions will be submitted to the Depart-
ment of Community Affairs (OCA) on or about July 17, 2007. DCA will then allow
a 15 day comment period before taking any action on the request. Objections will
only be accepted by DCA if they meet one of the following conditions: (1) the cer-
tification was not executed by the City of Clewlston's environmental certifying offi-
cer Mayor Mall Chamness or another officer of the local government approved by
DCA; or (2) the ERR indicates omission of a required decision, finding, or step
applicable to the environmental review process. Objections must be prepared and
ubmittedn accordance with 25 C.F.R. 58 within 15 days following CA's receipt
of the Request for Release of Funds, If you have comments or obJections, submit
them to the Florida Department of Community Affairs, Attn: Judy Peacock, Florida
