DOF lifts some burn bans


Muse area still
under burn ban

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Bob
Jones, the county's public safety
director, reported that the Florida
Department of Forestry (DOF)
has removed its burn ban and
recommended that the county
lift its ban, as well.
Mr. Jones made his recom-
mendation during the June 25th
meeting of the Glades County
Board of County Commission-


While commissioners
seemed in agreement with the
recommendation, the exception
will be the Muse area. Officials
say the Muse area is still very
dry and, to be safe, the burn
ban will remain in place in that
area.
Mr. Jones reminded the pub-
lic that it is illegal to burn house-
hold trash. Burning is only al-
lowed for discarded vegetation.
In other news, a sexual pred-
ator ordinance written by coun-
ty attorney, Richard Pringle, will
be presented to the planning
commission for consideration


on June 28. Then the county
commissioners will consider it
at a public hearing on July 10.
Angela Snow, emergency
management director, reports
that the Special Needs Shelter
will be moved from the Muse
Community Center to the West
Glades School. The school site
better accommodates those
with special needs. This is done
in cooperation with Hendry
County which will provide the
portable generator. The county
approved this measure.
The Glades County Sheriff's
Office administrative staff will
move to the new building and

Hope Connections helps seniors


Volunteers
are welcome

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Hope
Connections provides many
services for seniors age 60 and
older. The not-for-profit com-
munity based organization
has a site in Moore Haven that
prepares congregate meals
and provides home delivered
meals. Other services include
house keeping chores and
breaks for caregivers.
Diane Croskey is the case
manager with 25 years of ex-
perience. Wendy Zobrist is the
case management aide. They
assess the needs of the elderly
in order to establish eligibility.
Tanya Brown is the site manag-
er. Sally Morgan delivers home
meals.
Hope Connections was us-
ing the Doyle Conner Building
for its congregate meals, but in
late 2006 they moved to a site
at 101 Florida Avenue in Moore

Haven. It has recently been
painted yellow and is easy to
find.
Rose Marie Slowley, area
manager, is from LaBelle, and
Janet Calderwood is a dietician
from Naples. They both make
periodic visits to Moore Haven.
Community relations direc-
tor, John Strickling, works at
the Fort Myers office. He is the
media spokesperson for Hope
Hospice and Hope Connec-
tions. Mr. Strickling explained
that their services can ease a
few worries for relatives of se-
niors.
Recently, a meal delivery
driver in south Florida arrived
at a client's home and found
him on the floor. The driver got
help immediately, according to
Mr. Strickling.
"One great feature is the


peace of mind it can give a
family; knowing mom or dad
is alone," said John Strickling.
There is another Hope Con-
nections branch in Buckhead
Ridge which is a nutrition site.
They serve congregate meals
and deliver home meals. Alto-
gether, these two sites in Glades
County serve 92 enrollees.
If anyone needs advice
about caring for elder relatives
or neighbors, they can turn to
Hope Connections in the com-
munity and give them a call at
(863) 946-0366 in Moore Ha-
ven, or in Buckhead Ridge at
(800) 835-1673.
The not-for-profit organiza-
tion is always looking for vol-
unteers.

the old office will be renovated.
The old jail, which was dam-
aged by Hurricane Wilma, will
receive a new roof. It will be
converted into a county storage
area and will provide offices for
the state attorney office.
The emergency 911 and dis-
.patch in the old building will re-
main in operation even after the
new facility is up and running.
It has been recommended that
the old 911 and dispatch remain
in service as a back up during
emergency situations.
Also, the county has agreed
for Florida Department of Trans-
portation to build a new bridge


during the summer of 2008 near
Muse on C.R. 720. Standard pro-
cedure requires that the county
maintain the bridge.
County commissioners
agreed for the county to join the
National Association of Coun-
ties which represents county
governments in the United
States. The association assists
counties in finding and sharing
solutions to problems by using
education and research. It also
advises on rural issues and eco-
nomic development.

Competition for


water increases


Water levels vital
to local economy

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Local
residents and public officials are
concerned about the low water
level in Lake Okeechobee. The
Glades County Board of Coun-
ty Commissioners met June 25
and discussed the worsening
situation on the big lake.
Representatives were there
from South Florida Water Man-
agement District, U. S. Army
Corps of Engineers, and Sena-
tor J. D. Alexander's office.


Low water levels have
caused loss of access to Lake
Okeechobee, and it has.had
a detrimental impact on local
business and property owners
in Glades County. The Ever-
glades, coastal estuaries, agri-
culture and recreation all com-
pete for the uses of the lake's
water. The severe drought has
compounded this situation.
Buckhead Ridge residents
have become greatly con-
cerned that their waterfront
property has depreciated in
value. Their main access to
the lake*was the Pearce Canal,
See Water Page 12


INI/Nena Bolan
Buckhead Ridge is a fishing village without access to Lake Okeechobee. Many residents in
Glades County are concerned about the economic impact that the low water level has on lo-
cal business and property values.

cally it all began after the major

QUESTION: Can you describe

ANSWER: Well, I am very easy


Rev. Samuel S. Thomas,
Clewiston News
CLEWISTON Once a
year, the amateur radio opera-
tors across the country organize
a Field Day drill to prepare for
emergency operations. The drill
involves operating radio stations
under emergency conditions;
usually involving power sources
such as generators, batteries. or
solar power. The annual event is
to assure communications will
be possible in the event of a di-
saster or should the need arise
and the local power sources be-
ing out of operation. Clewiston
has an emergency radio station at
John Boy Auditorium which has
its own emergency generating
capacity in the event of a hurri-
cane or other disaster eliminating
the usual power from our regular
electricity suppliers.
On Saturday, June 23, at 2
p.m., the national drill began and
two local operators participated.
Jim Sparks, AA4BN, and Sam
Thomas, W3ALE, operated the
station at the John Boy site, con-
tacting stations in different parts
of the U.S. The station makes use
of both High Frequency and Very
High Frequency transmissions.


going, I am a very giving and help-
ful person, I enjoy helping others.
I am very caring and dedicated.
--QUESTION: What scares you?
ANSWER: Work wise, what
scares me is not having enough
resources to help all those in
need. And in my personal life I
would have to say see my chil-
dren grow.
QUESTION: What is your fa-
vorite song?
ANSWER: My favorite song ...
uh, I don't have one in particular,
I like all kinds of music.
QUESTION: What irks you?
ANSWER: Well, the two things
that really irk me are one not
having enough resources in our
community to assist the needy
and second is the misconception
that people have of the mental
health clinic: we not only service
the mentally ill, we also provide
many other programs.
QUESTION: What is the mem-
ory you hold dearest?
ANSWER: Having the opportu-
nity to enjoy all the words mother-
hood stands for, from pregnancy
to giving birth to my two boys and
one on the way. And the other is
of my mother who recently past
away and will always be missed.

Several contacts were made with
stations mostly in the northeast-
ern U.S. and the Midwest. Ad-
ditionally, contacts were made
around Lake Okeechobee in the
V.H.F. range; with the local 2-me-
ter transmitter bringing up the re-
peaters in Lakeport, Okeechobee,
Fort Myers and Belle Glade.
Given that, the antenna for the
High Frequency Station is orient-
ed in a north-south direction, it is
good to know that we can easily
reach Tallahassee and the rest of
Florida; where our contacts would
be required when an emergency
strikes. Our VHF station antenna
is oriented toward LaBelle where
our other vital communication
links would be in case of emer-
gency. But it is also good to know
that the station will enable us to
cover Belle Glade.
Both operators felt the test
was successful and demonstrated
the capability of our local gear to
do the job if and when the need
arises. Persons interested in ama-
teur radio can contact the Big
Lake Amateur Radio Club; which
meets the last Monday of each
month at Saint Martin's Church,
Clewiston. For information, call

Pet Corner


Dear Doc Savvy,
Question: Hello, my name is
Jenny. My husband and I have
two Labs, and we love to take
them just about
every where we
can when we go
out. My husband
drives a Ford 350
and insists on
loading them
up in the truck
bed when we
take them for a Doc
ride. I am very Savvy
uncomfortable
with this because I am afraid they
may jump out when we are driv-
ing. Is it o.k. to drive with dogs in
the back of a pick up?
Thanks Doc...
Answer: Hey there Jenny. That
would make me nervous too!.I
have seen many injuri,=- .,- n
dogs have fallen out oi juimped-


out of the back of a pick up while
driving. Even worse, I have seen
injuries where they have been
hung or dragged for miles by ac-
cident when they are tethered to
the back of a truck bed. Dogs are
unpredictable in the back of a
truck, and react to different peo-
ple, and cars, etc., while driving
with them in the back like that. It
is actually against the law to drive
with dogs either loose or tied in
to the back or a pick up truck for
.the various injuries mentioned
above. If you are pulled over by
an officer you can receive a hefty
fine. Even worse, your dogs could
really get hurt.
I hope that answers your con-
cerns Jenny.
Take care, Doc Savvy.

Make your own freezer


There is nothing quite like the
right appliance doing the right
task. Take my pasta maker for
example. Yes, you can take it -- I
don't use it. But touch my crock
pot? You and I are going to have
issues. I love my crock pot.
But right now, my crock pot
is my second best friend. My bff
(best friend forever) is my freezer
- my lovely, icy friend, the freezer.
My freezer holds dinners in it,
lots of them. Not the kind that
Stouffers or any of those other
guys make, dinners that I made
all at one time. I guess you could
say I've been sucked in by the lat-
est trend-the dinner assembly
franchise.
The only difference is I do it
myself. I've always been a do it
yourself type and that certainly
applies to cooking. And consid-
ering that I am The Dinner Diva,
I adore great food -- especially
when it's easy-button easy. Lately
though, I've been very busy--trav-
eling, writing and trying to-juggle
everything at once. So what's a
busy Dinner Diva to do?
Make it all at one time, put
it in the freezer and pull out my
handy-dandy, ready-to-go dinners
from the freezer in the morning
and voila, dinner is a snap that
night. I can't tell you how fun this
is! So how does this work, you
ask? Here's the low down on how
you can do it yourself, too:
Make up a list of recipes that
you like -- say 10 at one time.
Make sure they will freeze
well. You will want to skip stuff


with hard boiled eggs in them
and boiled potatoes. They don't
do too well with freezing.
Don't fully cook any pasta
dishes -- they will be watery, over-
cooked and yucky by the time
you thaw and eat them.


Ted Schiff, M.D. and the professional staff at
Water's Edge Dermatology will treat you with all the
care and expertise you expect.

Limited burn ban procedure is explained


Glades County Public Safety
has lifted the burn ban for all ar-
eas of Glades County except the
Muse area due to the dry condi-
tions in that area. The Muse area
consists of C.R. 74 South and any-
thing West of S.R. 29.
All other areas that are able to
burn must follow the guide's lines
below:
Burning authorization require-
ments: Agricultural, silvicultural,
landclearing, pile, and acreage
burning all require a burning au-
thorization from the Division of
Forestry.
Burning authorization not
required: Authorization is not
required to burn yard waste as


long as you meet the required set-
backs and there are no local, city
or county ordinances in place that
prohibit burning.
What is yard waste? Yard
waste is vegetative debris such as
grass clippings, brush, leaves, tree
limbs, palm fronds, etc., that are a
result of yard maintenance,
You may burn waste as long
as:
*You meet the required set-
backs and no local city or county
ordinances prohibit burning,
The yard waste was gener-
ated on your property and it will
fir in an 8-foot diameter pile or
non-combustible container,
Your fire is ignited after 9


a.m. and is extinguished one hour
before sunset,
Smoke is not a hazard or
nuisance.
If you do choose to burn:
Clear an area down to the
bare soil around your pile to pre-
vent your fire from spreading.
Cover a non-combustible
container with wire mesh to keep
sparks from flying out and starting
new fires.
Keep fires 25 feet from for-
ests, 50 feet from paved public
roads, 25 feet from your house,
150 feet from other occupied
buildings, no more than an 8 feet
in diameter pile and no combus-
tible container.


If you have any questions
on outdoor burning, please con-
tact your local Division of Forestry
office or visit the website www.
fl-dof.com.
All areas of Glades County are
allowed to burn using these rules
except the Muse area.
The burn ban is still in effect
for the Muse area. Borders in-
clude anything south of S.R. 74
and west of S.R. 29.
Note: It is illegal to burn
household garbage (including
paper products), treated lumber,
plastics, rubber materials, tires,
pesticides, paint and aerosol con-
tainers.

What to do with horse manure?


By MaryAnn Morris
Independent Newspapers of
Florida
There seem to be more
and more horses in the Lake
Okeechobee area these days.
Florida has over 500,000 horses,
making our state third behind only
California and Hawaii in horse
population. Recreation and com-
petition "occupies" 70 percent of
Florida's horses, according to the
University of Florida. And, being
an agricultural community, the
idea of careful, eco-friendly ani-
mal-keeping is both familiar and
quite popular.
One typical, 1,000 pound
horse will produce about 10 tons
of manure a year. How to avoid
polluting the aquifer, creating a
fly problem, poor quality pasture
and the awful, (can be fatal to
horse ownership) {complaints
from neighbors}?
To some extent, you can
spread it on the pasture with
good results. Think of this as recy-
cling horse feed, or getting double
from that feed bill you pay each
month. But, like everything else,
there is a right and a wrong way
to do this.
The University of Florida, Insti-
tute for Food and Agricultural Sci-
ences is the place to start.
From an on-line article found
on http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu, {Pas-
tures and Forage Crops for
Horses}, "significant amounts
of nutrients are recycled through
the manure of grazing animals.
However, since the manure is not
well distributed on the pasture,
manure should be spread with a


INI/MaryAnn Morris
More and more pleasure horses dot backyards throughout
the Lake Okeechobee area. On the average, each horse will
produce 10 tons of manure a year or about 1,600 pounds a


month.

light drag. Do this during hot, dry
weather.- Internal parasites will
be killed by the hot sun. Mowing
areas where horses do not graze
and dragging pastures to spread
manure piles will improve the
quality and the utilization of the
pasture".
By accident, this method was
also discovered: After three weeks
without picking up manure, two
acres of pasture were littered
with "road apples" last summer.
Plus the weeds the horses won't
eat stuck up and looked ragged.
In desperation, the owner of the
property took the family lawn


mower, set the blade of the lawn
mower down and mowed the
weeds and, in the process, pul-
verized and blew all the dried up
manure out evenly over the pas-
ture. This was not a very scien-
tific method, but reportedly, weed
growth is lessened and the grass
is improved.
Wet spots can be cleaned up
and sprinkled with a little agricul-
tural lime.
They have a very good re-
source: "Composting Horse Ma-
nure," a very good article avail-
able online at http://edis.ifas.
ufl.edu/AN040. Before the days
of commercial fertilizers, farm-
ers used manures to enrich their
cropland and pastures.
"Horse manure is not as liquid
as dairy manure, which can soak


into the ground and reach the wa-
ter supply. Horse manure is solid
and lends itself to spreading and
composting, then using to im-
prove the soils," said Pat Hogue,
Extension Agent III, Livestock,
Okeechobee County Agricultural
Extension Service. "Composted
horse manure can be used to in-
crease the organic matter content
and thus the water and nutrient
holding capacity of sandy soils in
agricultural and home gardening
settings. The material can also be
used by plant nurseries as potting
soil and is an excellent media for
the production of mushrooms,
fish worms, etc."
According to Information avail-
able from the University of Flor-
ida, growing earthworms is not
difficult. They are grown in beds
oof "unoxidized peat mixed with
sand and organic material" and
horse manure is sure organic!
"Earthworms are probably
the number one bait overall in
the Lake Okeechobee area," said
Larry Wright of Garrard's Tackle
Shop in Okeechobee.
"Sure, you can use it," said
Dan Culbert,
You might think that around
one of the fishing capitals of the
world, Lake Okeechobee, and
one of the greatest farming loca-
tions in the United States, manure
could be Utsed to good advantage.
Could composted horse manure
help some of the farmland be-
ing lost to muck subsidence? An
interesting thought and there will
be more to come about compost-
ing horse manure.

Everglades removed from danger list


GREENACRES "The removal
of the Florida Everglades from the
United Nations' list of world cultur-
al sites at risk by the World Heritage
Committee on Monday is a testa-
ment to how far we have come in
restoring the fragile ecosystem.
"The goals of the state leg-
islature's Joint Committee on
Everglades Oversight are being


reached, as we are beginning to
see a renewed commitment by the
federal government to fully fund
the Comprehensive Everglades
Restoration Plan (CERP). Con-
gress is moving closer to approv-
ing more than $1 billion for CERP
projects in Southern Florida, and
the State of Florida doubled their
annual contribution to CERP dur-


ing the 2007 legislative session.
"The Everglades removal
from the danger list, however,
should not be seen as the begin-
ning of the end of CERP. Though
we have taken great strides this
year to honor our commitment to
restore America 's River of Grass,
it is critical that we maintain this

The Bald Eagle has come back from the edge of extinction
in 1963. It was taken off the endangered species list on June
28 after government biologists counted nearly 10,000 mating
pairs.


The Bald Eagle is back


By: Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
The Bald Eagle, the symbol
of our nation since 1782, was
formally removed from the en-
dangered species list at a formal
ceremony held at the Jefferson
Memorial in Washington, D.C.
on June 28. At the same time the
announcement was being made,
the Audubon of Florida freed its
330th rehabilitated Bald Eagle
into the sky over Ocala. The bird
that was released was a 6-year-
old female that was found on the
side of a road in Silver Springs.
She had a broken collar bone. Af-
ter six weeks of rest and care, she
was returned to the wild.
Secretary of the Interior
Dirk Kempthorne made the an-
nouncement that the bald eagle
was being removed from the En-
dangered Species List.
"Today I am proud to an-
nounce that the eagle has re-
turned," said Secretary Kemp-
thorne. "In 1963, the lower 48
states were home to barely 400
nesting pairs of Bald Eagles.
Today, after decades of conser-
vation effort, they are home to
some 10,000 nesting pairs, a 25-
fold increase in the last 40 years.
Based on its dramatic recovery,
it is my honor to announce that
Department of the Interior's de-
cision to remove the American
Bald Eagle from the Endangered
Species List." '
Even though these magnifi-
cent birds have been removed
from the list, they will continue
to be protected by the Bald and
Golden Eagle Protection Act and
the Migratory Bird Treaty Act.
These acts are federal laws that
prohibit the taking, killing, sell-
ing or otherwise harming eagles,
their nests or eggs.
"After years of careful study,
public comment and planning,
the Department of the Interior and
the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service
are confident in the future secu-
rity of the American Bald Eagle,"
stated Secretary Kempthorne.
"From this point forward, we will
work to ensure that the eagle nev-
er again needs the protection of
the Endangered Species Act."

to announce that the

states were home to
barely 400 nesting
pairs of Bald ,Eagles.
Today, after decades
of conservation effort,
they are home to some
10,000 nesting pairs, a
25-fold increase in the
last 40 years. Based on
its dramatic recovery, it
is my honor to announce
that Department of the
Interior's decision to
remove the American
Bald Eagle from the
Endangered Species List."
Dirk Kempthorne,
Secretary of the Interior

The Bald Eagle was first given
protection in 1940 under what
later became the Bald and Gold-
en Eagle Protection Act. As their
numbers declined, they were
given further protection under
the Migratory Bird Treaty Act. For
a time, their numbers stabilized.
But, following World War II, their
numbers once again began to
drop. The pesticide DDT was
blamed for a great deal of the
decline. The DDT accumulated
in eagles and caused them to lay
eggs with weakened shells, de-
stroying their population. In 1967
their numbers were so low that
they were placed on the original
Endangered Species Act and then
transferred to the new Act when
it went into law in 1973.
"We are happy to see that
these magnificent birds have
come back," stated Lynda White
of the Audubon of Florida. "Our
only concern is that people real-
ize that they are still protected un-
der the Golden Eagle Protection
Act."

Artifacts found at Lake Okeechobee


Recent drought made
discoveries possible

By Naji Tobias
Independent Newspapers
BELLE GLADE For some-
one whose primary goal for
Torry, Kramer and Ritta Islands
was to plant pond apple seeds
and restore the wildlife the way
it appeared over 100 years ago,
George "Boots" Boyer got a lot
more than he hoped for.
S While reforestation is a noble
goal in and of itself, uncovering
centuries old artifacts is quite an-
other a truly once-in-a-lifetime
experience.
Mr. Boyer made the rare find
about two months ago. In Belle
Glade, when Lake Okeechobee
saw its water levels at or near re-
cord lows, the exposed ground
that the water had been hiding
for so long revealed the treasures
for Mr. Boyer.
"Boots," who got his name at
the age of two from the rubber
boots that his father, Bill Boyer,
would wear he would climb
them for fun began his interest
in Lake Okeechobee at an early
age.
A lifelong resident of the
Glades, Mr. Boyer spent much of
time as a child camping and fish-
ing with his family at Torry and
Kramer Island. He got so good at
the job that, as a 16-year-old, he
caught catfish out of canals while
trudging in the water bare-foot.
He still didn't his lesson when
a catfish dug itself straight through
the center of his right foot, send-
ing him to the hospital he kept
right on doing it as soon as he got
better.
Lake Okeechobee and Mr.
Boyer are inseparable.
Which makes his find that
much sweeter.
Sometime in the summer of
2001, Mr. Boyer found his first
artifact near Lake Okeechobee:
a small portion of what appeared
to be Indian pottery among old
bottles, an anchor and a steam
barge at the lake's bottom, about
a mile north of Torry Island. He
took his one-year-old son, Caleb,
along for the ride.
More recently, three months
ago, Mr. Boyer found human
bones, tools made out of deer
bones (including spearheads, ar-
o.',iheads- and axes) and conch
+ shells fashioned for cutting and
other artifacts.
He also spotted what appeared
to be a wooden catfish boat from
the early 1900s.
On Sunday, May 27, Mr. Boyer
-and Caleb, now 7 years old, were
about two miles south of Torry
Island planting apple seeds. They
found a site with 150 to 200 piec-
es of pottery dotting the area.
"Dad, what do we do?" asked
Caleb.
"We gotta notify the authori-
ties," replied Mr. Boyer.
"Daddy, how we gonna find it
again?"
"Go pick up a stick and put it
in the center of the mound," an-
swered Mr. Boyer.

This arrow head was found on-site.



The 7-year-old marked the
spot and the two left after a catch-
ing a bucket full of bass. -:
When he returned two days
later with Christian Davenport, a
Palm Beach County archeologist,
the two found the spot, with Mr.
Davenport remarking how signifi-
cant the find was.
"He said that it was a great
find and a sure enough mound,"
said Mr. Boyer.
After careful study, the archae-
ologist determined that the pot-
tery and artifacts were dated be-
tween 1,000 and 2,000 years old.
Had it not been for the lower
lake levels brought on by the
current drought conditions, the
discovery may never have been
made. In prehistoric times, ex-
perts believe the lake may have
been as low as eight or nine feet


continuously, while, today, the
lake averages between 12 and 14
feet.
Mr. Boyer has a knack for find-
ing old things hidden in the lake.
Just recently, the unsuspecting
would-be museum curator found
the side of an old boat that is very
likely to be, according to archae-
ologists, anywhere between 150
and 200 years old buried in the
soil.
Copper nails held the boat to-
gether.
"We thought that was amaz-
ing to find," said Mr. Boyer, whose
brother first spotted the piece of
the boat popping out from the
water.
"It's very exciting times for
me, being involved in all of these
different projects, from growing
pond apple trees to finding these


cool artifacts," said Mr. Boyer.
This year, Mr. Boyer has logged
time with the Arthur Marshall
Foundation in restoring the pond
apple trees near Torry Island. The
organization holds regular tree
plantings and invites volunteers
to join.
As of May 17, the Florida De-
partment of State's Bureau of
Archaeological Research, has
officially given Mr. Boyer the au-
thorization to protect the artifacts
and maintain a presence around
Ritta, Kramer and Torry Islands to
help prevent looting.
Removing artifacts or disturb-
ing such sites is prohibited by
law.
"It's our history," said Mr.
Boyer.

How much lower is the lake going to go?


WEST PALM BEACH A
persistent pattern of far below
average rainfall over the Lake
Okeechobee basin has resulted
in yet another record low for
the 730-square-mile lake, which
serves as a primary backup water
supply to 5 million South Florid-
ians. According to water manag-
ers at the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
Lake Okeechobee reached a new
all-time record low of 8.83 feet
above sea level as of July 3.
On average, Lake Okeechobee
and the District as a whole receive
about eight inches of rain during
the month of June; in June 2007,
the Lake received less than half
that. Meanwhile, highly localized
rainfall has favored coastal and
southern portions of the District,
where water levels are adequate
and excess rainfall cannot be cap-
tured or stored. Portions of Mi-
ami-Dade and Broward counties,
for example, received more than
12 inches of rain in June, resulting


"The irony of the current water shortage is that the
lower east coast has been experiencing almost daily
rain, and now the district is working to balance the
very dry conditions and lack of rainfall over Lake
Okeechobee with the risks of local flooding in
coastal areas."
Chip Merriam,
SFWMD's deputy executive director of water resources


in some localized flooding.
By far the largest body of water
in South Florida's water manage-
ment system, Lake Okeechobee
provides as much as 70 percent
of the dry season recharge for the
SFWMD's Lower East Coast Ser-
vice Area, which comprises Mon-
roe, Miami-Dade, Broward and
eastern Palm Beach counties.
"The irony of the current wa-
ter shortage is that the lower east
coast has been experiencing al-
most daily rain, and now the dis-


trict is working to balance the very
dry conditions and lack of rainfall
over Lake Okeechobee with the
risks of local flooding in coastal
areas," said Chip Merriam, the SF-
WMD's deputy executive director
of water resources. "Unless more
rain falls over the critically dry ar-
eas of Central Florida and water
levels in Lake Okeechobee climb
appreciably over the remainder of
the wet season, it is likely that res-
idents in Southeastern Florida will
continue to face water shortage


conditions through early 2008.
Our water management system
is intricately connected and water
conditions in one geographic area
may affect those in another."
The SFWMD and local agen-
cies have worked diligently to
capture and store a substantial
amount of water from recent
rains, helping to boost regional
water levels over the past several
weeks. Southeast Florida's water
conservation areas have enjoyed
water level increases of more
than a foot over the past seven
weeks: water elevations in Wa-
ter Conservation Areas 1, 2 and 3
registered at 15.11, 11.14 and 8.25
feet above sea level respectively
this morning.
Water levels are measured in
NGVD units, or National Geodetic
Vertical Datum units. NGVD is a
nationally established coordinate
system used to determine eleva-
tion, especially in areas close to
sea level.

It pays to be ready for anything here in Florida. A Total Line of Credit gives
you total flexibility. Access is'instant just write a check. So if a storm blows
in, you're ready. You're also set if you want to move on that new car or boat
or improve your home.
Here's the neat part: with rates as low as Prime minus 0.75% and no closing
costs, you can convert what you borrowed to a fixed rate home equity loan. As
you repay your loan, your available line of credit goes back up. Pretty smart.


Feelgood about your bank

Water
Continued From Page 1
which now has water levels near
rock bottom.
Many residents want local gov-
ernment to help them appeal to
water management and the corps
of engineers for immediate help
to rescue the recreation-based
economy of their communities.
Also at issue is the corps' new
requirement for lake water level
to remain at 12.5 feet to 15.5 feet
for 50 percent of the year. The
remaining 50 percent of the year
has an undetermined high and
low water level, according to of-
ficials.
Floyd Driggers, Buckhead
Ridge resident since 1984, spoke
about the ongoing problems of
low levels in the Pearce Canal ev-
ery summer after water has been
released in anticipation of hur-
ricanes. Even when there is not
a drought, the canal is not navi-
gable at this time.
"We are paying taxes on the
basis of having access to the
lake," said Mr. Driggers, referring
to depreciating property values in
Buckhead Ridge.
Commissioners and residents
alike are trying to determine who
is responsible for waterways like
the Pearce Canal and old Moore
Haven Canal in order to imple-
ment a plan to restore access to
Lake Okeechobee, and revive the
local economy. It is a confusing
issue since accountability hovers
within the triangle of the DEP, SF-
WMD, and corps of engineers.
Bonita Whalen, Okeechobee
division of water management,
informed the county that the ju-
risdiction of the Pearce Canal
falls under the state's Trustees of
Internal Improvement Trust Fund
which the Department of Envi-
ronmental Protection manages
for the state.
"But is it Water management,
or the corps of engineers that
make the waterways navigable?"
said Bob Giesler, commissioner.


Safety
Continued From Page 1
In preparation for hurricane
season, public safety will hold a
blood drive sponsored by Florida
Blood Centers on July 16 from 10
+a.nm. to 2 p.m.
The blood bus will be located
at the intersection of U.S. 27 and
Sixth Street next to the parking
lot at the former administration
building of the sheriff's office.
People wanting to donate can
fast track their appointments by
calling (863) 946-6020.
Storm spotter volunteer class-
es will be offered by emergency
management on July 26. Robert
Molleda, National Weather Ser-
vice in Miami, will teach a basic
Skywarn class and an advanced
Skywarn class at the Doyle Con-
ner Building at 900 U.S. 27 in
Moore Haven.
The Skywarn spotter program
is a nationwide network of vol-
unteers trained by the National
Weather Service to report severe
thunderstorms, or tornadoes.
On July 26, the basic Skywarn
class will be held from 9:30 a.m.
to noon. The advanced Skywarn
class will be held from 1:00 p.m.
to 3 p.m.

serving as a substitute teacher
in Glades County public schools,
she is actively involved in Florida
Ag in the Classroom. Most recent-


Bonita Whalen reported that,
since the canal is inside the lake
bottom it falls under state juris-
diction, and water management
does not have authority to main-
tain it.
Donny Cannard, corps of engi-
neer chief in Clewiston, explained
that the Pearce Canal, Dyess
Ditch and old Moore Haven Ca-
nal existed prior to the corps do-
ing any work in south Florida on
Lake Okeechobee which started
in the 1930's. None of them were
dug under the United States Con-
gress/ federal authority project.
"Unless it is authorized
through congress, we cannot do
any maintenance," said Donny
Cannard.
County commissioners and
residents were still determined to
find which agency is responsible
for the maintenance of Glades
County waterways.
"The canals before and af-
ter are nobody's responsibility?
That's what I am hearing. You
don't claim them because they
were dug without federal mon-
ey?" said Donna Storter Long,
commissioner.
Local officials expressed that
access to the lake is an economic
necessity for the county, and that
funding is needed to assess the
maintenance requirements of the
canals and to restore their naviga-
bility.
Larry Ford, representative of
Senator Alexander's office, spoke
to Glades County. He mentioned
that more than one legisla-
tive delegation needs to be ad-
dressed, and that other counties
with similar water level problems
should be invited to join in with
Glades County's inquiries. To do
this commissioners and residents
must find out how much money
is needed and what physical work
must be done.
"Will you work with us?" Bob
Giesler said.
"Absolutely, that is why we are
here," said Larry Ford.

For more information, con-
tact Angela Snow or Tosha Reiss
with emergency management for
Skywarn enrollment at (863) 946-
6020. They may also be contact-
ed for any details about the burn
ban guidelines, the blood drive or
the special needs shelter.
In other public safety news, re-
cently, Glades County Public Safe-
ty lifted the burn ban for all areas
of the county with the exception
of the Muse area. Bob Jones,
public safety director, explained
that this boundary includes C.R.
74 south and anything west of
S.R. 29.
Residents are allowed to burn
yard waste only. This is vegetative
debris that may consist of grass
clippings, brush, leaves, and tree
limbs.
Residents must meet certain
required setbacks from roads
and structures. The burn pile
may not exceed eight feet in di-
ameter. Also, citizens are asked
not to burn household garbage
which includes treated lumber,
plastics, paper products, rubber,
tires, pesticides, paint, and aero-
sol containers.
(See the public safety guide-
lines in the accompanying story
for exact details.)

Big Lake Track Club sends seven to nationals


Local kids
vie for titles

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE When the
local Big Lake Track Club season
began two months ago, there
were approximately 70 athletes
who competed with the track
,team.
At the state track meet held at
Disney's Wide World of Sports
in Kissimmee from June 21-24,
there were 45 athletes who com-
peted for a chance to show the
.country their talents.
In the end, seven of them will
.have that chance at the national
'track championship meet, which
will be held in Knoxville, Tenn.
July 28 to Aug. 4.
Here are the seven athletes
who made it to the nationals:
7-year-old Derisha Fraser,
who was in the Primary Divi-
sion, placed first in the 100 meter
race at 15.35 seconds and placed
,third in the 200 meter race at 32.4
seconds. According to Roosevelt
Blackmon, the head coach, Deri-
sha will be the only girl who will
compete in the national meet.
9-year-old Derrick Fraser, from
the Sub-bantam Division, placed
fourth in the long jump at 12 feet,
3 inches.
In the Midget Division, 12-year-
,old Lloyd Howard placed second
in the 100 meter race at 12.79
seconds and placed second in the
200 meter race at 25.7 seconds.
The 4x100 relay team, con-
sisting of 13-year-old William
Ligthley and 14-year olds Courtry
Parker, Donkevious Johnson and
,Daniel Theridor, placed fourth in
the state meet at 48.9 seconds.
According to Louis Butts, an
assistant coach for the team and
longtime Amateur Athletic Union
(AAU) track coach, the top four
finishers in the state meet make it
to the national competition.
For Henrietta Fraser, the moth-
er of both Derisha and Derrick,
the idea of her children taking
part in the national meet seems
hard to believe.
"Ever since I found out my
'two children made the nation-
als, I haven't been able to sleep

INI/Naji Tobias
At a practice held at the Glades Central High School track on Thursday, June 28, Derrick
Fraser, who will be competing in the long jump event at the Amateur Athletic Union (AAU)
national junior championships in Knoxville, Tenn., is practicing for the competition.


much," said Ms. Fraser. "I want to
be at the nationals with my chil-
dren in Knoxville. My kids want
me to be there to support them."
Watching her children com-
pete at all of this season's meets
so far, Ms. Fraser said she knew
that Derisha and Derrick were
athletes but did not know prior
to this season that they were this
good.
From Ms. Fraser's accounts,
her two children got her out of
the bed one Saturday morning,
telling her that the track team was
practicing.
"Then, I got into the car, took
the kids to the Glades Central
track and met with Coach Butts
and Coach Blackmon," said Ms.
Fraser. "I told the coaches that
both children are athletic just
before they signed on with the
team."
SAccording to the two coaches,
they immediately saw that Deri-
sha and Derrick were exceptional


athletes.
It has now paid off for both De-
risha and Derrick, as they look to
win gold medals in their events.
Over the last three years, ac-
cording to Coach Butts, Lloyd's
times have improved after every
meet. Lloyd has run track under
the tutelage of the longtime AAU
coach for the last three years, be-
ginning at the Sub-bantam Divi-
sion for 9-year-olds, followed by
the Sub-midget Division, a 10-
year-old division and now, the
Midget Division.
"Lloyd has tremendously im-
proved over the last three years,"
said Coach Butts. "When he
gets to become a Glades Central
Raider track star in high school,
I predict that he will be a state
championship-winning runner in
the 100 and 200 meter events."
Coach Blackmon said that he
is proud of the kids who qualified
for the national competition.
Coach Butts agreed, adding


Fishing tournament nets big bucks

game.


Clewiston sweeps Dixie League tourney


By Patty Brant
INI
CLEWISTON- Both the Clew-
iston Dixie League Belles and
Pony Tail Division All-Star teams
can claim the 2007 district cham-
pionship titles. The girls breezed
through the double-elimination
series with two wins over LaBelle
last week in Clewiston.
Katie Whidden pitched in the
first game with DeeAndra Trot-
tie as the catcher. Katie pitched
a no-hitter with the help of her
defense, which only gave up two
runs due to errors.
The June 20 game was called
due to lightning and the series
finished with a second win for
Clewiston June 21 with a score of
12-10. LaBelle battled back in the
last four innings of the game but
just couldn't get it 'done. Game
balls went to DeeAndra Trottie
for hustle behind the plate, great
plays and batting. Christina San-
doval got a game ball for leader-
ship and performance. Zoe Perry
got a game ball for the 'save' at
pitcher as well as performance.
Katie Whidden was voted MVP
by the coaching staff for pitching,
leadership and performance.
In addition, coaches got game
balls for contributions at practices
and games.
Coach Whidden promised the
girls a week off before they begin
preparing to travel to Sneads, July
5-9, for the State Tournament.
After a rough beginning, the
LaBelle team rallied to a 12-10
Finish. The team played with one
12-year-old, Whitley Byrd, who
was moved up to the Belles, 15

years old and under, for the All
Star games.
The four Pony Tail Division
teams, ages 11-12, also played
for the right to go to state. The
Sebring team was.invited to play
since they have no other teams in
their district.
The first night of play saw
Clewiston beat Moore Haven and
LaBelle beat Sebring. In the fol-
lowing games Sebring beat Moore
Haven, forcing them out of the
double-elimination tournament,
and Clewiston beat LaBelle. The


LaBelle girls won the Sportsman-
ship award. Kendall Tindall put in
a strong performance, and other
young players stepped up to give
Clewiston a good game.
On Friday night, Sebring best-
ed LaBelle, then fell to Clewiston
on Saturday.
Although Clewiston won the
championship, the team will not
be going to the state meet in the
Pony Tail Division. Sebring will
also not be able to go, leaving
LaBelle All Stars to represent the
area at state.


The girls are doing some seri-
ous fundraising in order to go to
the state playoffs, representing
the entire area including: LaBelle,
Immokalee, Clewiston, Moore
Haven and Sebring. Any donation
you could make will be much
appreciated and help them pro-
vide water, Gatorade, ice, fruit,
snacks, meals and room accom-
modations.
The team is planning a car
wash at Nationwide Insurance,
S.R. 80 and S.R. 29 on Saturday,
June 30.

Tennis park receives improvements grant Sports News in


CLEWISTON USTA (United
States Tennis Association) Florida
has awarded three Public Facil-
ity Funding Grants totaling over
$6,000 to support the renovation
of tennis courts in Kissimmee,
Clewiston and Miami. The City of
Kissimmee Parks and Recreation
Department received $2,500 to
renovate tennis courts at Oak
Park Community Center; the
Clewiston Community Tennis As-
sociation (CCTA) received $2,487
to improve tennis courts at Clew-
iston Tennis Park; and the Boys
& Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade,
Inc. received a matching grant of
$1,250 to restore tennis courts at
Hank Kline.


"USTA Florida is thrilled to be able to assist these
three worthy organizations with funding for tennis
court renovations."


USTA Florida Director


With acquisition of the USTA
Florida grant, the City of Kissim-
mee Parks and Recreation De-
partment will have 10 fully func-
tioning tennis courts. The grant
money will allow them to resur-
face two unused tennis courts,
remove tree roots from under-
ground and place windscreens at
the end of all 10 tennis courts at
the Oak Park Community Center.


District Champs
The Clewiston girls were undefeated in the tournament
defeating teams from Moore Haven, Labelle and Sebring.
In the front row are, Kelsie Moore, Courtney Bain, Brook-
Flynn, Mandi Perry, Kiana Hardy and Olivia Rivera. Team
members in the middle row are, Brenda Reyna Morgan
Jones and Sydney Duckstein. The back row, members
Include (Coaches) Jesus Rivera, Arnold Moore, George
Duckstein and Al Perry.


Linda Curtis,
of Community Development.


The center is always buzzing with
players because it currently has
15 tennis programs operating at
the facility, including First Swings,
Teen Tennis, Ralleyball, USTA Jr.
Team Tennis and Adult Begin-
ner, Intermediate and Advanced
classes. The addition of two more
functional courts will allow the
city to increase league participa-
tion and add more tournaments
to the calendar.
The Clewiston Community
Tennis Association will use its
grant money to make the Clewis-
ton Tennis Park more user-friend-
ly, creating an attractive venue
for playing and watching tennis
matches. Currently, the facility
has no shaded area, no perma-
nent seating and no central gath-
ering point around the courts for
players to mingle before and after
matches. The goal of the Clew-
iston Community Tennis Associa-
tion and the City of Clewiston is
to construct aluminum bleach-
ers, tables, landscaping, signage,
walkways, an all-weather bulletin
board, windscreens and a patio
area which will encourage new
players to get involved in the sport
of tennis and draw more people
to participate in tennis as a life-
time sport.
The six court tennis facility
is open for public use 24/7 and
serves as the "home court" for the
local high school boys and girls
tennis team and is used for USTA
sanctioned and non-sanctioned
youth and adult tournaments,


plus instructional programs. This
is the first public facility grant for
the CCTA.
"We are wonderfully surprised
that we were approved for the
grant from USTA Florida," said
Tim Allen, Secretary/Treasurer of
CCTA. "The City of Clewiston is
pleased that the Community Ten-
nis Association was able to help
them bring in the grant."
The goal is to complete the
project by Oct 20, the date of the
Clewiston Fall Super Series (BG
10-14).
In 1995, two tennis courts
were constructed at the Hank
Kline Tennis Courts for the Boys
and Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade,
Inc. After 12 years, it is time the
courts get a facelift. The $1,250
grant, along with matching funds
of $1,250 from the USTA, will help
the organization fix large cracks
and patch-up run down areas,
as well as coat the tennis courts
with a four coat all acrylic resur-
face/color system. The Boys &
Girls Clubs of Miami-Dade, Inc.
opens its doors to children of all
races and ethnicities and helps at-
risk youth by providing them with
structure, fun activities, sports and
leadership skills to keep them
away from illegal activities. The
newly renovated tennis courts will
no doubt draw greater interest in
tennis and provide the kids with
high quality competitive surfaces.
"USTA Florida is thrilled to be
able to assist these three worthy
organizations with funding for ten-
nis court renovations," said Linda
Curtis, USTA Florida Director of
Community Development. "We
look forward to hearing about the
growth of tennis on the courts."
All tennis improvements
should be completed no later
than Sept. 30.

Simple things



can mean much


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
The kids have gone to bed,
and now 1 have a chance to sit
down and write my article. No,
we are not at home, and the kids
are not my kids. We are at a spe-
cial place. My wife calls it a taste
of heaven on
earth a place
where you can
experience
unconditional
love and full ac-
ceptance even
if you are not
perfect and all-
together. John
It's called Hicks
Camp Pioneer, a special camp.
experience for mentally chal-
lenged individuals that occurs
the last week of June every year.
Set up about eighteen years ago,
individuals from around the state
volunteer to give up one week of
their lives to be a "buddy" to a
mentally challenged individual.
These special buddies spend
their week helping their camp-
ers have a wonderful week of
,camp activities including crafts,
Bible studies, and family fellow-
ship activities with other camp-
,ers.
The tragic part is that the
number of campers is limited
to the number of volunteer bud-
dies, and there is always a wait-
ing list. The blessing is that most
of those campers who are able
to come have one of the best
experiences of their year at the
camp. As a matter of fact, sev-
eral started packing in March for
the June camp. It's that impor-
tant in their lives.
It is also important in the lives
of their family or caretakers.
One set of parents shared that
they had not had a break from
care-taking for 35 years before
their "child" started coming to
Camp Pioneer. Another mother
shared with tears in her eyes,


"Thank you so much for having
this camp." It's hard to explain
to them that I was the one who
felt blessed. Without exception,
those of us who serve as bud-
dies receive more that we give.
During the week, we have Bi-
ble studies, chapel time, swim-
ming, camp games, crafts, and
lots of fun. But what is really
special is the love freely shared.
It doesn't matter whether you
are tall, short, big, small, red or
yellow, black or white, or even
green or purple; you are freely
accepted and seen as something
special. Would that we could do
that everywhere!
Many times we take the sim-
ple things for granted. I cook all
the time. You should have seen
the joy they had preparing ba-
nana pudding, pigs in a blanket,
and fruit kabobs. I would never
have imagined so much ecstasy
over something so simple. Last
year, on a whim, I took a num-
ber of campers away from build-
ings, and people, and let them
drive the camp golf cart. I didn't
realize how much that five min-
utes of driving meant to some
of the campers. Several shared
that that was the high point of
their week, and were still talking
about it this year. Many times
it is the little things we do that
make the most difference in the
lives of those around us things
that we often take for granted!
Who knows how much that
five minute sacrifice out of our
time will mean to those we reach
out to? Who knows how much
God will use the little things we
do to make a big difference?
Simple things can mean much
and make all the difference in
the world.
And if you happen to have a
week you can share at the end
of June next year, I invite you to
join in the Camp Pioneer expe-
rience. I guarantee it will be a'
week that will bless your life in
ways you never imagined.


Seeing and believing how things are


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I used to have someone very
special in my life who shared
my plans for the future. We
talked about marriage and she
had many wonderful qualities
that I admired. As always, there
were some
times when
we disagreed.
She would say, ,
"That's not really "
you!" when we
didn't get along
or argued about
something. I
thought to my- Samuel S.
self"Ohyesitis!" Thomas
and wondered
why that part of me wasn't seen.
She told me one day of visiting a
quiet spot in the woods and knew
that I'd find it perfect too. When I
saw it, it was overrun with bugs,
hot and muggy and the last place
I wanted to spend any time. We
saw things differently, but my way
of seeing them for me was really
"me." Likewise, her way of see-


ing things for her was really "her"
too.
Later, I ran into people who
failed to see a partner or loved
one as they really are and have
known of the difficulties it some-
times causes them. We want to
believe the best about people
and want them to believe the best
about us, but it is not always the
way things are in reality. If I have
a good grasp on reality, I under-
stand the differences between
how my friends and I feel about
things and can take these differ-
ences into account.
Lots of unhappiness comes
from finding out that we are
wrong when we believed our
friends and loved ones agreed
with us, were like us, thought as
we did only to find out it wasn't
so at all. Happiness with anyone
is related to seeing them as they
really are and letting them see us
as we really are, too. It can make a
difference in a marriage, in friend-
ships, on the job, in our organiza-
tions, in social settings; wherever
we relate to others. When there is
a "disconnect" between who we
are and what we want people to


believe, it usually shows up in our
actions.
Brutality doesn't belong in a
world of those whom we want
to believe are kind and love us,
invulnerability doesn't belong in
our relationships with those who
say they love us, secrecy doesn't
fit with those who say they trust
us. As always, actions speak loud-
er than words and where there is
a difference I look to the actions
to speak the loudest.
There is a moment when Je-
sus is telling about what is going
to happen to Him. He explains to
His disciples that He must go to
Jerusalem and suffer many things
at the hands of the elders, chief
priests and teachers of the law
and that He must be killed, and
on the third day raised to life (Mat-
thew 16:21). Peter took Him aside
and began to rebuke Him "Never,
Lord!" he said, "This shall never
happen to you! (v.22)" Jesus then
turned to Peter and said, "Get be-
hind me, Satan. You are a stum-
bling block to me; you do not
have in mind the things of God,
but the things of men. (v.23)."
That was a rather sharp rebuke!


There it was though, the discon-
nect between what Peter would
have liked and what was actually
meant to happen. Peter didn't see
the Lord as He actually was and it
blocked his relationship and place
in what God had intended.
Getting it right is very impor-
tant in all of our lives; seeing what
is really going on around us, see-
ing others as they really are, be-
ing truthful ourselves in our pre-
sentation of self and being who
we are. Some of the happiest
people I know aren't perfect, but
they're honest about themselves
and are willing to accept their
shortcomings instead of trying to
cover them up. They don't delude
themselves or others by acting
one way part of the time and an-
other way the rest of the time, or
pretending to be other than who
they really are.
They don't see the world with
undying optimism, but try to see
it as it actually is without losing
faith or becoming bitter. They are
in touch with reality and are great
to be around. I try to be like them
- hope you do, too.


July 4th It is 'One nation under God'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Historical revisionists have
for a long time tried to deny or
obscure the fact that our nation
was founded upon a belief in
God. These quotations are proof
that our forefathers, including the
framers of the Constitution, never
intended a separation of GOD
and STATE.
1620 The Mayflower Com-
pact "In the name of God, Amen,
Having undertaken for the Glory
of God and advancement of the
Christian faith...do solemnly and
mutually in the presence of God
covenant and combine ourselves
together..."
1643 Constitution of the New
England Confederation "Where-
as we all come into these parts of
America with one and the same
end and aim, namely to advance
the Kingdom of our Lord Jesus
Christ and to enjoy the Liberties of


the Gospel in purity with peace."
1681 William Penn "If you
are not governed by God, you will
be ruled by tyrants."
1752 Liberty Bell "Leviticus
25:10: Proclaim Liberty thru all
the land and to all the in land and
to all he inhabitants thereof."
1772 Samuel Adams "The
rights of the Colonists as Chris-
tians...may be best understood
by reading and carefully studying
the institution of the great Law
Giver and Head of the Christian
Church, which are to be found
clearly written and promulgated
in the New Testament."
1776 Declaration of Indepen-
dence "...The laws of Nature
and of Nature's God... that all
men are created equal, that they
are endowed by their Creator
with certain inalienable rights...
appealing to the Supreme Judge
of the world for the rectitude of
our intentions...with a firm reli-


ance on the protection of Divine
Providence..."
1787 Benjamin Franklin
- "Here is my creed. I believe in
one God, the creator-of the Uni-
verse. That he governs it by His
Providence. That he ought to be
worshipped. "In the Constitution
Convention: "I have lived, Sir, a
long time, and the longer I live,
the more convincing proofs I see
of this truth...that God governs in
the affairs of men. And if a spar-
row cannot fall to the ground
without His notice, is it probable
that an empire can rise without
His aid?"
1787 Alexander Hamilton
- Soon after the Constitutional
Convention: "For my own part,
I sincerely esteem it a system
which without the finger of God,
ever could have been suggested
and agreed upon by such a diver-
sity of interests."


1789 George Washington,
Thanksgiving Day Proclamation
- "Whereas it is the duty of all na-
tions to acknowledge the provi-
dence of Almighty God, to obey
His will, to be grateful for His
benefits, and humbly to implore
His protection, aid and favors...
Now therefore do I assign and
recommend Thursday, the 26th
day of November next...that we
may then all unite in rendering
unto Him our sincere and hum-
ble thanks for His people of this
country, and for all the great and
various favors which He has been
pleased to confer upon us."
1820 -Daniel Webster in Plym-
outh, Massachusetts -"...more
than all, a government and a
country were to commence, with
the Divine Light of the Christian
Religion...Who would wish that
his country's existence had other-
wise begun? Let us not forget the
religious character of our origin."

The Wadlow family at Fisheating Creek Area Church
News in Brief


By Ralph Wadlow as
'yold to Carroll Wadlow
Edited by MaryAnn Morris
, The Wadlow family: mother,
father and 23 year-old Ralph
came to Palmdale, Florida in
'Dec. 1932. Both Ralph and his
'father Clyde had been laid off
,from their jobs in Indiana in the
:economic crunch that was the
,great depression. The mother's
doctor had recommended a
-warmer climate to relieve the
pain of her arthritis. 'Ralph's
,grandfather, Ferdinand Weiss, of
Springfield, Mo. had offered the
family the use of 20 acres of land
,he owned on Fisheating Creek in
:Glades County. When finally, af-
Ater the long trip from Evansville,
Ind., the family arrived looking
4for the land. They were led to a
spot "so etherally beautiful that
,we were speechless."
"Great live oaks and tower-
Ing palmettos were interspersed
with many exotic trees, shrubs
and plants entirely new to us.
Spanish moss festooned the
limbs and swung rhythmically in
Athe breeze. The tree trunks were
'dotted with small, tender green
.plants and blossoms. The shore-
.line of the gleaming ebony-black
,water was strewn with exquisite
,pale blossoms. Fish plopped
on the surface of the creek and
turtles scuttled off of logs at
,our approach. Rabbits and cat
,squirrels darted here and there.
A great rookery surrounded us
with egrets, herons and curlews
-circling and chatterinng in every
'direction. Birds echoed through
-the trees."
S"Christmas day, 1932, we
,walked in the woods. I shot a big
turtle with my .22 and cut a cab-
bage tree. It was not very good,
as I did not know how to butch-
er it so it did not taste bitter. Bill
Laighton came along and gave

Special to INI/Ralph Wadlow
We worked two days on this tractor and earned $2.50. Alavine Lantz in Okeechiobee knew
these tractors, "we called them lightening rods. The wheels and all were metal," she said.
these tractors, "we'allied them lightening rods. The wheels and all were metal," she said.


us a head of fresh lettuce for our
Christmas dinner, which pleased
my mother very much. I shot an
old blue heron and parboiled it,
but it was so tough and smelly
we could not eat it. Later that
night, I heard a possum rattling
the frying pan where the fish had
been cooked. I shot him, giving
the frying pan an extra pouring
lip for all time!
"We ate the possum."
"I built a stove. I got an ob-
long gas tank from an old junk
car at the Palmdale dump, rolled
a Coca-Cola sign into a stove
pipe, tied it with wire and then
cut a hole in the top of the tank
for the pipe to stand in. I cut out
the end of the tank and wired it
back on for a door. Two Model T
running boards on stakes made


a bench to stand it on.
"One Sunday, we had visitors.
Joe Hogan and his woman came
by and passed the time of day.
They mentioned that we were
camping on the favorite fishing
ground of the whole community
and did we mind if the neigh-
bors still came to the creek on
picnics? We assured them that it
would be fine with us.
"The following Sunday about
eight or ten adults and and the
same number of kids came in
two Model Ts. Although they
fished, they had also brought
some food: sweet potatoes, cold
biscuits, grits, black-eyed peas
and some pork -- the woods
were full of hogs. They had pans
and grease and mother invited
them to use our stove, which


pleased the ladies. "They liked
that stove pipe which they used
to fry perch, black bass, catfish
and bream.
Mother had brought from
Indiana twelve quarts of black-
berries she had canned. She
dug out a jar of them and made
dumplings, dropping them into
the "briar berries." Everybody
praised them. One lady offered
to trade a half gallon of cane
syrup for a quart of them. We
accepted the offer gladly, though
we were disappointed that it
was not thicker molasses. An-
other lady paid us a quarter for a
jar. The postmaster traded sugar
for some.
"J.W Snell, who was mar-
ried and had ten kids, owned a
nice big home out on the edge


of town. After they had moved
into their former store near the
post office, this home fell into
disrepair. He asked us if we
would go live in it and we ac-
cepted. We cleaned, painted and
repaired the property, hoed out
the little groove and trimmed up
the abandoned grass and shrub-
bery.
"Everything responded to
our care and to the fertilizer we
got from a neighboring chicken
farm. There was aa small ga-
rage open on one side with a
blacksmith post drill and emery
wheel. The neighbors began to
bring Model Ts, Model As and
trucks to be repaired. Tom Green
had an old broken blacksmith
forge which he let us use if we
could fix it. Frank Brady said he
had no need for his anvil. (This I
gave to Lawrence Cutts in 1980.)
we picked up coal spilled off the
tender along the railroad track.
"Brake rods often broke from
road vibration and people had to
go twenty miles to get them re-
paired. Consequently, Dad went
to smithing. We mended these,
ground valves and tightened
connecting rods. Our biggest
job was a Fordson tractor that
we worked on for two days and
earned $2.50. All the other jobs
brought sweet potatoes, collard
greens, syrup, pork, cabbage,
turnips and occasionally a can
of Prince Albert tobacco."
So the Wadlow's were settled
in Glades County on Fisheating
Creek. The ingenuity and "stick-
to-it-ivness" of people like this
family and others like them have
made the lake area what is is to-
day. They may be gone, but their
stories will live to inspire others
