Harney Pond muck removed


Final notes from
SFWMD, Glades
County and FWC

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN The Lake
Okeechobee area has been en-
during a severe drought which
reduced water level to less than
nine feet.
The shoreline recessed, ex-
posing a vast stretch of dried


sediment that South Florida Wa-
ter Management District (SFW-
MD) wanted removed from the
lake bottom.
This would be an opportunity
to help restore the natural sand
bottom, nurture native plants,
encourage fish spawning, and
reduce phosphorous pollution.
SFWMD announced plans for
sediment removal in early spring.
They targeted several sites along
the northwest shoreline, one of
them being Harney Pond Canal,
Recreation Area. Nearly $1 mil-


lion was provided by the district
to pay for the removal, and they
requested that Glades County
contract the extensive excava-
tion project.
During a county commis-
sioners meeting of April 23, the
bidding selection of contractors
was discussed in length. There
were four bid responders pres-
ent as well as SFWMD represen-
tatives, Benita Whalen and Mis-
sie Barletto. Since this work was
a pilot project, each bidder was
requested to briefly explain what


they intended to accomplish.
Thomas King, Rio-Bak Cor-
poration, mentioned that his
company had a lot of experience
and could move 100 acres in 60
days. With the budget of nearly
$1 million they could work for
30 days. His bid was $7.65 per
cubic yard.
David Whidden, AEC, stated
that he could finish the job in
27-28 days and had calculated
his bid to include resurfacing of
the entire roadway if it was dam-
aged. His bid was $15.47 per cu-


bic yard.
Andy Powell, Wright Con-
struction, explained his compa-
ny had 60 years experience and
was prepared to do the job. The
bid was $6.65 per cubic yard.
Carl Perry stated he had pre-
vious experience working with
the city.of Moore Haven and-
Glades County. He mentioned
that he had laser equipment
which would allow them to re-
move more muck and less sand,
His bid was $9 per cubic yard.

Revision of sexual
predators
ordinance continues

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On Tues-
day, July 10 the Glades County
Board of County Commission-
ers held its morning meeting.
Lynn Topel, executive di-
rector of Florida Heartland
Rural Economic Development
Initiative gave a report to the
.county.
The sexual predators' ordi-
nance was further discussed
and members were appointed
to the Value Adjustment Board.
The Florida Heartland Rural


Economic Development Initia-
tive (FHREDI) coordinates re-
gional economic development
in a six-county area within
south central Florida which in-
cludes Glades County.
It has programs that help
businesses relocate to the re-
gion, or helps existing busi-
nesses to expand. FHREDI also
encourages training for the
workforce, and it promotes
education.
Lynn Topel reported that
there is a program to study and
bring broadband internet ac-
cess to all residents within the
six-county area. There are also
plans to study and implement
business export opportunities

Bomb threat
a hoax

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Glades
County courthouse personnel
and visitors received a scare
July 10 when the courthouse
was evacuated after the clerk
of courts office received a
threatening letter in the mail.
"We received a letter ad-
dressed to the clerk of courts.
When a clerk read it at lunch
time she took it to a supervi-
sor and they immediately
called courthouse security,"
commented Joe Flint, Glades
County clerk of courts.
This was reported to the
Glades County Sheriff's Office
about 12:37 p.m.
The sheriff's office had the
courthouse evacuated and a
perimeter was set up around


the building. Patrol cars were
parked at street intersections
by the courthouse, and depu-
ties warned drivers to keep
away. Emergency rescue ve-
hicles were on standby.
Lee and Collier Counties'
law enforcement agencies
provided assistance by send-
ing their explosives-sniffing

K-9's. It took approximately
90 minutes for them to arrive.
The dogs searched the entire
courthouse and no bombs
were found.
FDLE and Glades County
Sheriff's Office looked into the
source of the letter and found
a surprising source, although
the actual contents of the let-
ter were not revealed.
"The letter came from an in-
mate incarcerated at the state
prison in Raiford. He is serving
a life sentence and has no his-
tory of terrorist activities," said
Detective Sergeant Don Salo.
This case was a hoax, and


FDLE has determined that the
inmate has no ties to Glades
County, according to Detective
Sergeant Salo.
Sgt. Salo said Crawford also
sent a similar letter to another
small county.
The GCSO detective said
Crawford sent the letters in
hopes of being charged locally
then transferred from Raiford
to a small county to face those
local charges.
"He was trying to get a local
charge and sent to a smaller
jail in hopes of escaping," said
Sgt. Salo.
For that reason Crawford
will not be charged in the
hoax, he added.
The detective said Craw-
ford also stated his disdain for
the criminal justice system in
the letter.

Weather watcher captures funnel cloud


Skywarn class
Offered by
Emergency officials

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
BUCKHEAD RIDGE Mi-
chae; J. Breiter was standing
on Seventh Street in Buckhead
Ridge with his camera when
a funnel cloud was spotted.
Quick on the draw, Mr. Bre-
iter snapped a picture with his
Olympus C8080 digital camera
that day, July 9 at 6:21 p.m.
Focusing in the west-north-
west direction, he captured a
long, cylindrical formation ris-
ing many to tower the air.
Rick Brown, Buckhead
Ridge Fire Department fire


fighter/EMT, reported the inci-
dent to Glades County Emer-
gency Management.
They are pleased to have
the report so the information
can be added to their statistics
and vulnerability analysis for
the Southwest Florida Regional
Planning Council.
Angela Snow, emergency
management director, encour-
ages residents and visitors
to report incidents of severe
weather to their office in the
Glades County courthouse, and
then they will report it to the
National Weather Service.
A class for weather watchers
is being held Wednesday, July
26 and will train residents to be
storm spotters. It is called the
Skywarn spotter program and
will be taught by the National
Weather Service (NWS).


Skywarn spotters are a
coast-to-coast network of vol-
unteers trained by NWS to re-
port significant weather. These
volunteers become the eyes
and ears for local emergency
management, and enable the
NWS to provide better weather
watch and warning services.
Their mission is to protect lives
and property.
A Skywarn volunteer may
report observations directly to
the emergency management or
NWS by phone, whether they
are at home, at work, or on the
road. Sometimes this informa-
tion is relayed by amateur radio
repeaters.
NWS officials, neverthe-
less, encourage volunteers not
to jeopardize their own safety

Glades use
still limited

By Jose Jesus Zaragoza
Independent Newspapers
Although it appears that the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District has loosened wa-
ter restrictions along the eastern
coast of the state, the Glades area
- made up of the western com-
munities of Palm Beach County,
Hendry County and Glades Coun-
ty -- remain under the same tight
restrictions.
Residents living in other com-
munities from St. Lucie to Mon-
roe counties have been given the
opportunity to wash their cars
at any time, instead of the previ-
ous once-a-week schedule, while
Glades residents are being asked
to continue limiting their use.
The Lake Okeechobee Service
Area,, of which Glades, Hendry
and some areas of Palm Beach
counties are a part, remain under


Phase III water restrictions. This
means that residents living in this
area must limit outside water use
to one day per week.
Odd-numbered addresses are
allowed to water or wash their
cars or boats on Saturdays, from
4 a.m. to 8 a.m., those with even-
numbered addresses can water
during the same time on Sun-
days.
Areas on the coast follow
many of the same restrictions but
are now allowed to wash their
cars and boats at any time dur-
ing the week. Some areas in Palm
Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade
are allowed water use two days
'per week under different restric-
tions.
An active rainy week recently
seemed to provide some relief to
the drought conditions, but the
lake level remains steady at 9.1
feet still a very low figure com-
pared to the normal level of the
lake.
The drought has exposed
areas of the lake bottom that re-

vealed, among other items, a veri-
table treasure of hidden artifacts
dating hundreds of years back at
a site off of Torry Island in Belle
Glade.
Even while the water district
loosens restrictions, residents
across South Florida continue fac-
ing the possibility that the restric-
tions will be implemented again.
As it stands, water managers said
that the onset of the rainy season
and the storage of more than 2.2
billion gallons of water ensures
that water stages do not drop to
dangerously low levels for the du-
ration of the wet season.
"With conditions in the Lake


Okeechobee watershed so radi-
cally different from conditions
along the coast, the district is
still in a severe regional water
shortage," said district governing
board Chairman Eric Buermann.
"Even with modified water re-
strictions in some areas, we must
still practice wise water use and
conservation."
Meanwhile, residents in the
Glades continue hoping for some
relief from the stringent water re-
strictions, but any relief seems far

Firefighters train in


tight space survival


By Lt. Mark Carr
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY During a fire, fire-
fighters are sometimes faced
with collapsing buildings or a
growing fire that impedes their
egress, causing them to have to
seek or improvise an alternate
exit pathway. In recent weeks,
Palm Beach County Fire-Rescue
workers in Belle Glade, Pahokee
and South Bay have practiced
survival techniques in prepara-
tion that life-threatening sce-
nario.
Under the direction of Glades
area District Chief Curtis Rice,
who developed the training,
two fire engine crews from the
Pahokee fire station and another
district chief, went through the
simulations on July 17. Props
were constructed out of wood
by Pahokee Firefighter C.J. Whit-
more. In the event of a collapse,
firefighters might have to breech
walls in order to escape. Each
crew member faced the chal-
lenge of fitting between simulat-
ed wall studs set 16 inches apart.
Another prop forced firefighters
to crawl through a 24 inch L-
shaped box tube about 12 feet
long.
Perhaps the most challenging
was the "entanglement prop"
which simulated a ceiling col-

lapse. Firefighters were forced to
crawl through the'prop on their
backs as they worked their way
through wires and cables hang-
ing down and snagging them as
they worked their way through.'
Adding to the challenge of
the training is the fact that each
member of the crew is dressed
in full firefighting gear including
pants, coats, boots, gloves, hel-
mets and Self Contained Breath-
ing Apparatus heavy air tanks
worn on their backs. In the final
scenario of the session, non-
toxic smoke was added to the
already darkened room causing
visibility to be near zero from
just above the floor all the way
up to the ceiling.
The training has been well
received by the crews. Each fire-
fighter realizes that his or her life
may depend on the ability to
perform in the most stringent of
circumstances and in the most
difficult of environments. A hasty
escape is of the essence in a col-
lapsed building or when one's
air supply is running low. Offi-
cials hope these skills will never
be brought to the test but the
families of the firefighters will
rest more easily knowing that
their loved ones have trained
and maintain a proficiency that
ensures that "Everyone Goes
Home" at the end of the shift.


Injury was
to finger

By Naji Tobias
The Sun
BELLE GLADE On the
morning of July 15, two men were
involved in a physical altercation,
leaving one shot in the finger.
According to Teri Barbera,
the spokeswoman for the Palm
Beach County Sheriff's Office
(PBSO), deputies responded to
Glades General Hospital in refer-
ence to the incident.
The victim, 50-year-old Lessley
T. Lailer, was caught in the cross-
fire. Afterward, the victim was
sent to the hospital for observa-
tion.
The fight, which happened at


Remember the quote from
'The Rime of the Ancient Mari-
ner' by Samuel Taylor Coleridge,
"Water, water everywhere, nor
any a drop to drink?" The ancient
mariner was stuck in the middle
of the ocean, so all the water
around him was salty and not fit
for consumption.
With more than 700 freshwa-
ter springs, 1,350 miles of coast-
line and 50,000 miles of rivers and
streams, water is just about ev-
erywhere in Florida. Two months
ago, however, Florida experi-
enced the worst case of wildfires
since 1998 while the period from
November 2005 to March 2007
ranked as the third driest period
in recorded history. With drought
conditions occurring throughout
much of the state, it is important
that each of us do our part to con-
serve water.
How much difference can an
individual make when it comes
to conserving water? With pre-
dictions of water use in Florida
increasing from 7,551 million gal-
lons a day (mgd) in 2005 to more
than 9,200 mgd in 2025, every lit-
tle bit saved can help, although, it
really isn't just a little bit when it's
all added up. Based on a family of
two adults and one child, practic-
ing water conservation can save:
20 gallons per day-for every
leaky faucet that is repaired.
500 to 800 gallons per
month-installing water-saving
shower heads or flow restrictors.
700 gallons per month-short-
ening shower time by just one or
two minutes.
200 to 300 gallons a month-
catching the water that runs while

County offers several


generator safety tips


GLADES COUNTY After a
storm many people use portable
generators to supply power to
their home. If not used properly
and safely these portable genera-
tors can be very dangerous and
]even deadly. During the 2005
,Hurricane Season there were 64
deaths that occurred due to the
unsafe and improper use of gen-
erators. Following a few simple
safety guidelines could have pre-
vented these deaths.
Remember to NEVER use a
portable generator indoors this
includes home, garage, crawl-
spaces and sheds.
Be sure to keep portable gen-
erators outdoors in a dry area
away from doors, windows and
vents that can allow carbon mon-
oxide to enter the home.
If you feel sick, dizzy, or weak
while using a generator get to
fresh air immediately. Do not de-
lay. Carbon Monoxide can rapidly
kill you. Children can have symp-
toms faster than adults. If a child
complains of any of these symp-
toms immediately evacuate the.
entire family to fresh air.
Wait for rain to pass when us-


ing a generator, most generators
are not weatherproof and can
pose the risk of electrocution and
shock when they are operated
during wet conditions.
Plug individual appliances into
a heavy duty, outdoor rated exten-
sion cord and plug the cord into
the generator.
Make sure the extension cord
has an adequate wire gauge
for the appliance load and has
all three prongs, including the
grounding pin.
Never try to plug your portable
generator into a wall outlet, also
known as "back feeding". This is
not only dangerous for you and
your family but for your neigh-
bors and utility workers as well.
Never store fuel in your home
or near a fuel-burning appliance,
such as your generator or a gas
water heater.
Make sure that the batteries in
your smoke\and carbon monox-
ide detectors are working.
Remember that it is up to ev-
eryone to keep our community
safe, review and practice Hurri-
cane Safety Tips with your entire
family, relatives, and neighbors.


Hometown Escapes in Hendry


By Nancy Dale, Ph.D.
Special to the
Glades County Democrat
A soft breeze feathers through
thatches of palmettos spiking a
crimson horizon, as dragonflies
"toe-dance" from peak to peak,
flashing their turquoise iridescence
along a whimsical path. Beams
of sunlight stream through wav-
ing cabbage palms tracing their
graceful stalks into native scrub.
Quietly, the morning awakes
in this small crevasse of Glades
County, nestled on the western
shore of Lake Okeechobee in the
vast Everglades prairie. A living
spectacle of nature's unobtrusive
beauty that captures the senses
and stamps its unique imprint
upon space, time, and those who
carry their weary bodies from the
bustle of city drama into the fresh
air of the pristine wilderness.
Traveling along Highway 80
West through South Bay, the road
curves northwest on U.S. 27 to-
wards Clewiston, named after
Alonso Clewis, who founded the
first sugar company when he dis-
covered that cane grew well in
the "black-gold muck" along the
southern tip of Lake Okeechobee
(the second largest fresh water
lake in the nation). In the heart of
Clewiston is the majestic Clewis-
ton Inn built in 1938, reflecting the
southern charm and hospitality
of the 1900s "boom days" when
tourists visited from all over the
world seeking adventure in wild
Florida. The Inn, on the National
Register of Historic Sites, serves
breakfast, lunch, and dinner with
a small bar off the lobby and hosts
corporate retreats, meetings, wed-
dings, and other specialty events.
For reservations or information:
(800) 749-4466 or info@clewis-
toninn.com.
Another 16 miles north on
U. S. 27 is Moore Haven, settled
along the Caloosahatchee River
that links the Atlantic Ocean to
Sthe Gulf of Mexico. The old town
square, just beneath Highway
27 overpass, now remains silent
but is reminiscent of the days
when it was a thriving farm and
cattle town. However, the new
Main Street program is poised to
breathe new life into the unique
character of the old days as a proj-
ect progresses to renew the town
center.
For a bite to eat, there is break-
fast, lunch, or dinner served at


Tico's Spanish and Mexican Res-
taurant serving authentic, deli-
cious dishes in pleasant surround-
ings with courteous service. A few
blocks further west is Joey's Pizza
with a menu of take-out food and
hot fudge sundaes, just across the
street from the county seat, Moore
Haven's restored courthouse.
Also, serving hot take-out food is
the U-Save grocery store across
the street from Joey's.
As the highway curves another
11 miles through native habitat
and pastures to Palmdale, the
time clock returns 200 million
years ago when ancient dinosaurs
roamed the earth leaving behind
today's curious reptiles: The alli-
gators and crocodiles, both native
to Florida. Palmdale is the home
of the giant behemoths and one
of the oldest roadside attractions,
Gatorama, 'purchased in 1986 by
"Florida Cracker" David Theilen
from an alligator poacher, Cecil
Clemons. Theilen's premise in
buying Gatorama was that alliga-
tors would be a curious attraction
to northern visitors who had never
before seen the gigantic reptiles.
Today, Gatorama serves as a
science center for the study of en-
dangered crocodiles and for alliga-
tor breeding and harvesting with
"hands-on" science, managed
meticulously by present owners,
Patty and Alien Register.
Through the gift shop, walk-
ing along the open boardwalk,
crocodiles, alligators, and humans
peer at each other from a safe
distance as the reptiles swim un-
derneath in surrounding ponds.
The reptiles flaunt their posture
with spiked tails above the water
giving a sense of each creature's
size. As the eye moves toward the
triangular head of the crocodile,
or the rounded muzzle of the al-
ligator snout, Patty Register gives
a guided tour to visitors explaining
the difference between the. two
ancient beasts.
Gatorama began with a clutch
of 800 alligators and today has
expanded to more than 4,500.
Gatorama also harvests alligators
for meat and hides that they sell
at the gift shop. The largest alliga-
tor, Goliath, weighs 1,400 pounds
and is 15 feet long. Gatorama is
open seven days a week, rain or
shine, from 9 am to 6 p.m. Cost of
admission: $11.95 adults and chil-
dren 56 inches and shorter, $5.95;
plus, you can take a picture hold-
ing an alligator.


For special groups, there is a
"Gator Shining Night" to tour the
park as the sun sets, and enjoy
a home-cooked "cracker style"
meal including alligator tail,
swamp cabbage, and sour orange
pie. Reservations are required.
Call (863) 675-0623 or visit www.
gatorama.com.
One mile north of Gatorama,
on the west side U.S. 27 is Fish-
eating Creek open for camping,
canoeing/kayaking, swimming
and peaceful walks through the
woods. Fisheating Creek is 52
miles long and is filled with na-
tive catfish, brim, and. bass. The
park covers 28,000 acres and is
also one of the largest nesting ar-
eas of the migratory Swallowtail
Kite that travels from Brazil every
spring to build nests in the tall
trees along the Creek. There are
also great white herons, egrets,
and wild turkeys. Alligators, mud
turtles, and bobcats roam the cy-
press hammocks rising along the
tannic creek waters from the crys-
tal white "sugar sand" that once
was the bottom of the ocean be-
fore the last Ice Age when Florida
arose from the depths.
Fisheating Creek is on the
lower section of the Lake Wales
Ridge that curves up the spine of
Florida some 200 miles north and
is a unique eco-system of paleo-is-
lands that never sunk as Florida's
sea-levels fluctuated over millions
of years.
Fisheating Creek's headwater
flows from Highlands County to
the north and meanders through
marshes, pastures, forests, wind-
ing into Lake Okeechobee. The
early Indians used the creek as a
trade route to Punta Gorda and
early settlers used it to deliver
mail.
Fisheating Creek provides 100
campsites with full hook-ups and
primitive sites. The cost is $20
nightly for a full hook-up, monthly
sites are $500 plus tax, and primi-
tive sites run from $10 (off the
creek) and $15 on the creek. The
campground provides a small
country store for staples, local
newspapers, ice and information
on guided eco-tours. Canoe rent-
als are $30 for a full day with a
day trip to Burnt Bridge, $20, or a
two day trip to Ingram's Crossing
at $25.
The beauty of Fisheating Creek
is a place where the only night
lights are a canopy of stars over
the warmth of a campfire and the


aroma of roasting hotdogs. Fish-
ing, swimming, relaxing is the at-
traction for visitors here to forget
the burdens of the city and refresh
in Nature..The address: 7555 U.S.

Moving less than a mile north
along U.S. 27, past Palmdale's old
country store, is Vanishing Species
Wildlife Preserve, open Thursday
through Sunday, 9:30 a.m. to 4:30
p.m. Vanishing Species Wildlife is
a haven to a variety of non-releas-
able bears, primates, big cats, rep-
tiles and other animals. Jeff Har-
rod, owner, provides educational
programs designed to entertain
and educate all age groups about
wildlife, the environment, and
protecting endangered species.
Vanishing Species new resident
is "Daisy," a 2 month old bear
rescued in Ohio. With a broad
knowledge of reptiles and mam-
mals, Harrod fearlessly wraps
himself in a giant Columbian Boa
Constrictor captured in nearby La-
Belle, that he explains, was appar-
ently released into the wild.
Inside the attraction, visitors
can stroll through a herpetarium
of venomous and non-venomous
reptiles and ponder ancient relics
featured in the history museum.
There is a gift shop and just out-
side, a family picnic area to feed
goats, sheep, and other livestock
that roam freely. Call (954) 347-

An upcoming eco-tourism at-
traction that promises to bring an
awareness of the ancient history
of Glades County's Indian cul-
ture to visitors far and near is the
future opening of the Ft. Center
Trail by Lakeport that will provide
visitors with kiosks describing the
early Belle Glades culture at the
mounds alon' the way. Fish and
Wildlife is already completing the
parking area and revitalizing the
trail.
In this unspoiled corner of "old
Florida," little known by many
who bypass this destination,
Glades County provides a rare
serenity that tingles the spine and
rekindles the spirit and can only
be discovered in the last pristine
wilderness.

Athletic programs tackle steroids bill


Local coaches and
players unaffected
by the new bill

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
A new bill is aimed squarely at
finding high school football play-
ers who may be using steroids to
enhance their on-the-field perfor-
mance. The legislation will affect
high schools during the upcom-
ing season.
Not only do the football teams
have to worry about the impend-
ing matter, the baseball and
weightlifting teams must do the
same, effective next season.
Signed by Florida Governor
Charlie Crist on June 19, athletes
from all three sports will face ran-
dom steroid testing, with up to
one percent of the approximately
60,000 students in Florida being
tested. The random testing went
into effect on July 1.
According to a bill HB 461, The
Florida High School Athletic Asso-
ciation (FHSAA) will be adminis-
tering the steroid testing program
- a one-year program for the 2007-
2008 academic year. Students
from grades nine through 12 will
be randomly screened for the per-
formance-enhancing drug.
Students will face a 90-day sus-
pension from interscholastic ath-
letic practice and competition if
the tests are found to be positive,
according to language in the bill.
Locally, coaches and players
don't seem to be worried by the
effect of the bill.
Pahokee Blue Devils head foot-
ball coach Blaze Thompson said
that he supports the rules and reg-

At a practice held on Tuesday, July 10 at the Pahokee Recre-
ational Center field, Pahokee Blue Devils senior quarterback
Anthony Sheppard, who stands at 6 feet, 2 inches and weighs
160 pounds, takes a water break. A bill on steroids, which
went into effect on July 1, won't affect him, he said. "All you
have to do is look at me and know I don't take steroids. I don't
want to be an embarrassment to the school team."


ulations, but added that the state
needs to be more explicit on what
players will be tested for.
"The state needs to give a list
of everything that's banned so the
players and coaches know what's
legal and illegal to take," said
Coach Thompson.
Moore Haven Terriers head
football coach Jason Bond said he
doesn't think the bill will be an ef-
fective deterrent to catching play-
ers using the illegal substance.
"As far as the bill goes, I think
it's a waste of the taxpayers' mon-
ey. The state is testing one percent
to catch one percent who are ac-
tually using steroids," said Coach
Bond. "I don't think the program
will be effective at all."


Coach Bond believes that the
state needs to refocus its efforts
on a bigger drug problem.
"Drugs and alcohol are a big-
ger issue than steroids because
every year in the lake area, there's
at least one person dying due to
alcohol-related accidents," the
coach said. "The state's focus is a
little off, I think."
Others say it's a step in the
right direction, but agree that one
percent is a negligible number.
Clewiston Tigers head football
coach and athletic director Larry
Antonacci supports the idea, even
though he wishes that it was well
over one percent of the athletes
who will be randomly tested.
The coach said that talking to


the players about steroids will be
one way to ensure that the ath-
letes will comply with the law.
"What I will do is monitor
both their weight gains and their
max gains on their weightlifting
sessions," Coach Antonacci said.
"We will be checking out the play-
ers' personalities to see if there
any changes. If we see any dras-
tic changes, then that player and I
will sit down, have a talk and find
out what the problem is."
Football players from across
the Lake Okeechobebee region,
including Glades Day offensive
tackle Jimbo Arnold, said they are
not worried about the law. The
Glades Day offensive tackle add-
ed that if any players get caught,
scholarships could get cut as a
result something that nobody
wants.
"It will be an even-playing field
for all teams," said Jimbo.
Coach Bond believes in reach-
ing out to players before they have
the chance to reach out to drugs.
"The best thing for the coach-
es to do is to teach kids about the
negative side effects of what ste-
roids could do to you physically,
naturally and emotionally," said
Coach Bond. "It's more beneficial
for the players to work out with
the coaches in weight training
programs, have better eating hab-
its and do it all naturally in a year-
round, supervised setting."
Glades Day Gators head foot-
ball coach Pete Walker delivers a
similar message.
"Drugs hurt your body," the
head coach said. "All we talk
about is getting high on God, foot-
ball and family."

The Dixie All-Stars give their all


By Brenda Whidden
Clewiston Dixie Youth All-Stars
took time out to cool off in the
Florida Caverns State Park dur-
ing their Softball competition in
Sneads, Fla. from July 7-10. The
team did as well as any Clewiston
team has ever done at the State
level with one win and two losses
in the double elimination series.
The first game against Wild-
wood was a disappointment to
parents and coaches, as the girls
were unable to gain their focus
in stifling heat. However, the girls
surprised their coaches by plan-
ning their own practice at 9 a.m.
the next morning and running it
themselves.
They showed high energy and
spirit and attacked Port St. Joe
with one triple by Christina San-
doval, 6 doubles and 7 base hits.
Katie Whidden pitched 7 innings
and contributed 9 strikeouts to the
win. Laura Romero played short
stop and Whitney Irey played sec-
ond base and were responsible for
6 assists for outs during the game
and had successful "at-bats".
Janeria Hatcher made a throw
from right field to the catcher for
an exciting out at home and also
batted extremely well.
In the third game against
Hardee County, Clewiston took
an early 2-0 lead against the best
pitcher they had seen so far in the
tournament. Zoe Perry contrib-
uted 8 strikeouts, only allowed
3 hits and only gave up 2 walks.
Unfortunately, Hardee County
was successful at beating us with
a couple of stolen bases, and 2 er-
rors on our part, with a final score

Throughout the tournament,
DeeAndra Trottie did a great job
catching and made three amaz-
ing catches in center field. Lucy
Cortez batted 2 for 3 in our game
against Port St Joe. Amiee Young
made a great catch in left field and
Bonnie Cortez pitched extremely
well in our first game but did not
get much action on third base for
the rest of the tournament. She
played error free ball on the few
balls that did come her way.
The coaches and parents were
proud of the effort and determina-
tion the girls showed during the
tournament. The girls all got along
well with one another, and could


be found together after games
in the vending area of the hotel.
They exemplified sportsmanship
and leadership throughout their
stay in Sneads. They were com-
plimented by the hotel staff, host
team coaches and staff and mem-
bers of other teams staying at the
same hotel.
The team would like to say
thank you to the Clewiston Di-
xie League volunteers and board
members for assisting them with
this experience. The High School
team will be obtaining some
good players from this program
in the next couple of years! Look

come.

A legitimate role for the press is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

How are we doing?

Beedie Mae Thomas remembers progress


As told to
MaryAnn Morris
Mrs. Beedie Mae Thomas of
Basinger was kind enough to
share some of her recollections
of the mid-1900s. Mrs. Thomas
was born a Kilpatrick up in Kilpat-
rick Hammock, now a part of the
Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State
'Park. She married Edgar Thomas
in 1935.
"We didn't get electric up here
until 1949 -- that was the Rural
Electrification (a Federal pro-
gram), but I never thought about
not having it. It was just the way it
'was and there's no sense fussing
,about that.
"Before electric, we had a hand
pump for water, so there was an
outside toilet, a wood stove and
you used a flat iron to iron with.
You had to have at least two of
those. One to heat up on the stove
while you ironed with the other.
"Then in '45, I got a gas stove
(propane) and then, like I said,
electric in '49.
"Telephone we got in 1958 and
the way we did that is about eight
or ten of us got together and paid
so much each for one. That was a
party line. (A party line meant that
all ten or so families were on one
line and each family had its own
ring: one long ring or two longs
and a short, three shorts and so
forth and so on). It wasn't until
later you had private lines here.
"Back then, you had your gar-
den, so you had fresh vegetables
all year you did two plantings,
one in spring and another in fall.
It seems like you could tell when
the seasons would come, not like
it is now.

more on left and Lucile Evans.


"But we planted green beans,
turnips, mustard, collards, Irish
potatoes and then sweet potatoes
and cabbage. The potatoes would
keep pretty well back ten, not like
now. I don't know what the differ-
ence is.
"Later on in the spring you
could plant your corn and black-
eyed peas. We'd can everything
we didn't need just then so we
always had vegetables.
"There was no refrigerator, so
you'd cook what you would eat
for that meal and if there was any-


thing left, it went to the hogs or
the dogs. When things were tight
you planned pretty close. But we
had chickens, so we had eggs ev-
ery day and you milked your cow
twice a day, so you always had
milk and cream. Meat, you salted
and smoked and it would keep a
good long time that way.
"I rendered my own lard and
it would keep three months or
so without turning. Now it won't
keep like that.
Then you had guavas they
grew wild and we picked them


When Summertime comes sauntering in


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
The end of one brings on the
beginning of another. Spring bows
out around June 20 at which time
summer officially marches to
front and center -- as do more
brides than in any other month of
the year.
According to the early Roman
calendar, June was the fourff
month with 29 days. But then
came Julius Caesar's reformation
of the calendar and suddenly June
is pushed down the road to the
sixth spot and she's given an extra
i. pearl another day.
As to her name, there are
two groups of authorities. One
believes the month was named
for Juno, the patron goddess of
marriage. The other group be-
lieves the name was taken from
juniores, the Latin word for young
men, particularly since the month
of June was dedicated to young
men in Rome.
SRegardless of one's choice
of camps as to the name, to the
world in general, at least in tem-
perate zones, June is thirty days
of sweet scents and lovely sights,
star-studded nights and warm
sparkling days. One of the largest


of these lovely sights, at least in
the eyes of some, is Loblolly Bay,
Fordonia lasianthus, Family Thea-
ceae.
Interestingly enough, this is the
"tea" family, one and the same
as the tea we drink. Loblolly Bay
is native to the Land of Flowers.
Slightly cupped, pure white petals
of her showy fragrant flowers are
in a single row around a golden
cluster of stamens.
It hasn't happened this year,
but Loblolly Bay often bursts into
bloom seemingly overnight in the.
waning days of May, then contin-
ues her show through summer
into autumn. At heights of up to
40 feet, Loblolly Bays of South
Florida are purely spectacular as
they grow close enough to in-
tertwine in wet areas, creating a
stunning star-like effect against
their evergreen background of
deep, waxy green.
Hear-say vows albeit incor-
rectly -- that the beauteous native
Loblolly is in the family Magnolia-
ceae. Although there is a foliage
and on a smaller scale, a flower
resemblance, the two are no kin.
But to take the family tree a little
further, Stewartia verginica is kin
to Loblolly in the family Thea-
ceae.
And if there be those who say


this is more than one needs to
know about Loblolly Bay trees,
there are others who yearn for
one or more. After all, this Flori-
da native has no ugly season, no
human nor environmental prob-
lems, and once planted in a wet
area, will require only one thing:
admiration.
"It's one of my favorites, I love
it," says Ruth Danforth, Dan's
Nursery, Alva. 'Although no
'blood' kin, it's often called the
wild magnolia, and it does remind
me of real magnolias. Even if you
have only one, it's well worth
planting -- a splendid shade tree."
Eddie Scrivner, Scrivner's
Garden Center, Fort Myers, says
although Loblollys are not com-
monly available, they're reason-
ably easy to find. "If we don't hap-
pen to have them at a particular
time, we can get them quite eas-
ily."
Loblollys are also available at
most native nurseries, one be-
ing Dan's Nursery at Alva in Lee
County. In LaBelle in Hendry
County, Ace Garden Center also
stocks Loblolly Bay trees.
One of Glades County's elected
officials, Joe Flint, Clerk of Court,
says the
Loblolly Bay is very special to
him. "I love it -- it's majestic, se-


"What impressed me the most was the staff's friendliness and willingness to help."

and attentive staff right here at home, but to serve you even better,
we have made a.few changes:


rene ... a tidy tree. with no ugly
season. I cherish every Loblolly
that's on my land."
This sixth month is special for
other reasons, too. The United
States celebrates
Flag Day on June 14, honoring
the day in 1777 when the Conti-
nental Congress adopted the Stars
and Stripes as the flag of these
United States.
To some, no day dawns in
June that is not special, it's some-
thing like:
You could not come an hour
too soon...
Oh joy of joys! One more
June.
And besides, the wrens are
courting again!

lemons, I juice them and freeze

Charter school to open at Brighton


By Lorna Jablonski
INI Florida
When school begins on Aug.
20 this year a number of lucky
students will be attending a new
charter school at the Brighton
Seminole Indian Reservation
called the Pemayetv Emahakv,
which is Creek for "Our Way
School."
The new school will house
a maximum of 120 students in
grades kindergarten through fifth.
The corporation that owns the
school is Pemayetv Emahakv, Inc.
(PEI). The corporation provided
part of the funding for the school,
while the state provided the rest.
PEI is a corporation set up by the
Seminole Tribe of Florida to han-
dle the school.
According to the school's prin-
cipal Russ Brown, there are al-
ready 110 students pre-registered.
The school will follow the rules of
the Glades County school system
and will operate by the Glades
County school system's calendar,
with the exception of two Indian
holidays.
In addition to the school
board-approved curriculum, the
community-based school will
teach the Creek culture and Creek
language. The language class will
be taught one period a day, every
day. There will be an Indian cul-
ture class one day a week, as well
as Indian arts and crafts classes
two days a week.


Submitted to Okeehcobee/Russ Brown
An architectural drawing shows what the new elementary charter school will look like at the
Brighton Seminole Indian Reservation. The school will be known as "Pemayetv Emahakv,"
which, in Creek, means "Our Way School." The school will open Aug. 20 and will house up to
120 elementary school students from kindergarten to the fifth grade.


The students will be required
to take physical education classes
every day and will have a 90-min-
ute reading period each day. The
school will use the supplemental
reading program "Readright."
Students will also be required to
take the FCAT test each year.
The school will have 10 teach-
ers and a teacher's aide in every
classroom. The two kindergarten
teachers will be Melody Webber


and Michelle Coleman. The first
grade teacher will be Cindy Ring-
staff. Dixie Ball will teach second
grade. Leslie Pryor and Lisa Clem-
ents will teach third grade. Fourth
grade will be taught by Stephanie
Tedders. Renea Finney will teach
fifth grade. Ryan Tedders will be
the special education teacher.
Pam Matthews will teach physical
education. The school's guidance
counselor will be Jeanine Gran.


"We are very lucky to have
such outstanding teachers," said
Mr. Brown. "They are the cream
of the crop."
Seminole Tribe students
have traditionally attended
public schools in Glades and
Okeechobee counties.

Donna Keen, widow of well-known Glades County veterinar-
ian, Doc Keen was presented with a donation check to the
Doc Keen Scholarship fund by local 4-H club member, Skyler
Burke. Miss Burke wanted to help with funds that she raised
after her steer took the Grand Champion title in March.


4-H youth donates


to scholarship fund


MOORE HAVEN -- Donna
Keen, an employee at the Glades
County Tax Collector's Office,.
was surprised when Moore Haven
sixth grader, Skyler Burke, visited
her at the office on July 12.
Tax Collector, Gail Jones was
in on the surprise. Mrs. Keen was
working behind the counter when
the eager Skyler arid her mother,
Connie Haught, waited out in the
courthouse lobby so as not to be
seen.
Mrs. Keen was called from her
desk by her co-worker who mo-
tioned to the mom and her daugh-
ter to come forward.
Miss Burke greeted Mrs. Keen
presenting her with a donation
check to the Doc Keen Scholarship
Foundation. The $2,000 check was
from monies earned by Skyler for
raising her 4-H prize-winning steer.
Miss Burke won Reserve Grand
Champion at the Seminole Tribe
of Florida's 4-H Show and sale in
March. She also won Jr. Show-
manship. Burke had pledged the
amount then but she didn't get the
money deposited into her 4-H ac-
count until recently.
Doc Keen, a highly regarded
veterinarian in the Glades, died in


2006. His wife, Donna, created a
scholarship fund in his name. The
2007 inaugural year for the schol-
arship saw three graduating se-
niors receive $1,000 each to help
with their college educations. One
graduate received a $500 scholar-
ship for trade school.
Skyler Burke is a tribal mem-
ber who remembers Doc with af-
fection. Doc Keen was the official
tribal veterinarian for many years.
"He helped me with my first
steer. If he was sick, Doc would
give us a prescription," said Sky-
ler. "He was a really good guy
and when he died I was sad," she
said.
Donna Keen was very touched
by the gift.
"I think it is so special that a
young girl could recognize how
much Doc loved the 4-H kids," she
said. "Doc was a 4-H leader for 30
years. His headstone has the 4-H
cloverleaf emblem on it."
"On behalf of the scholarship
committee and Doc's family we
wish to thank Sk~ ler and all the
Tribal members thai have donat-
ed so generously t:0 Lhe Doc Keen
Scholarship Fund."


New principal at West Glades


Debra Davis replaces
Larry Luckey

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to
Glades County Democrat
She's been at West Glades
School for two years filling the po-
sition of Curriculum Specialist. As
of this year Debra Davis has been
moved up theeducational ladder
to become the Principal of West
Glades, filling the position previ-
ously occupied by Larry Russell
Luckey, II, who has become the
Principal of Upthegrove School in
Hendry County.
Debra Davis is married to Tim
Davis and in her words is "wife,
stepmom and grandmother." The
Davis family lives in LaBelle.
She moved to LaBelle direct
from college in 1981 and has
been teaching in local schools
since then, including LaBelle Mid-
dle School.
Debra has earned her Masters
Degree in Educational Leadership,
which she said is the new desig-
nation for School Administrator.
She is a member of the Carlson
United Methodist Church, the La-
Belle Book Club, and the Barron
Library Board.
"I am so excited about the 6p-
portunities here, especially since
we're now Kindergarten through
eighth grade," said Ms. Davis.
"And this year, we'll have even
more students than last year. Our
eighth grade students who gradu-
ated this year were fewer than the
new Kindergarten students enter-
ing school this year so our student
body is growing all the time."
Ms. Davis remains grateful to
Mr. Luckey for his job as princi-
pal.
"I want to say that the for-
mer principal here, Larry Russell
Luckey, II, did a truly wonderful
job of hiring the very finest, most
capable teachers available for
West Glades. And now it's up to
us to continue his excellent work
to make this school even better.
Getting a school up and running
from the ground up is an ex-

tremely hard and heavy task and
he did an extraordinary job in this
capacity."
Teachers, both old and new,
will begin their service at West
Glades on August 13, while stu-
dents will return to their classes
on Monday August 20.
The majority of West Glades
teachers will be returning this
year.
"We actually have only a few
vacancies to fill," said the new
Principal. "Unlike other years,
this year we will have an assistant
principal, however that position
has not been confirmed as yet."
In the meantime parents, are
urged to stop by the school any
time now from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. to
pick up lists for supplies that their
children will need to begin the


. submitted to IN


new school term. The lists will
apply to all grade levels.
The first major special event at
West Glades will be their annual
Open House scheduled for Thurs-
day.August 16 from 4 to 6 p.m.
Parents are not only invited
but urged to attend to meet and
talk with their children's teachers,
see the classrooms they'll be in
and generally learn what they can
do to make the school year more
profitable for their children from
all standpoints.
"And we're already planning
our 2007 West Glades Fall Festi-
val which will be, as the saying
goes: bigger and better!" added
Mrs. Davis. "So be sure to mark
your calendar right now to save
Thursday, Nov. 8 for our Annual
Fall Festival."

Noxious weed spreading in Florida


GAINESVILLE -Aweed called
cogongrass is rapidly spreading
Across the Southeast, and a Uni-
iversity of Florida researcher says
it's already overtaken kudzu as
Florida's most obnoxious weed.
"Kudzu's no longer the poster
child. Cogongrass is a big deal,"
said forestry researcher Shibu
SJose. "It's becoming a major, ma-
jor problem." Cogongrass (CO-
)gun-grass) has yellowish-green
foliage and can reach 4 feet tall,
v said Mr. Jose, of UF's Institute of
Food and Agricultural Sciences.
Introduced into Alabama from
Japan as a packing material in
.1912, cogongrass was tested as
a forage crop in the 1920s, which
allowed it to gain a toehold. It be-
gan making its presence known
in the 1970s and 1980s, Mr. Jose
said and is now causing prob-
lems in Louisiana, Mississippi,
Alabama, Georgia and Florida.
A 2003 survey showed 1.5 mil-
lion acres of cogongrass across


the Southeast, compared to 1 mil-, a concerted effort to bring every-
lion acres of kudzu, Mr. Jose said. one from government officials


Florida has about a half-million
acres of cogongrass. Cogongrass
is well-suited to its role as an ag-
gressive weed. It's a perennial that
can spread quickly underground,
its roots easily besting other plants
forwater, nutrients and space. Co-
gongrass also thrives where fire is
a regular occurrence. Mr. Jose be-
lieves recent wildfires may make
the problem worse, because fires.
kill smaller trees and plants, lear-


to landowners to researchers to-
gether to eradicate cogongrass.
But the entire state must be on
board, Mr. Jose said.
"It doesn't do any good if
everyone's not doing the treat-
ments. Private landowners,
agencies, everyone has to work
together," Mr. Jose said. "If we
don't do this, we will see cogon-
igrass everywhere." Cogongrass

Some Florida counties, such as ing with Charudattan to pinpoint
Alachua and Marion, are making fungi from cogongrass that can


suppress it, but not eradicate it.
Den Breeyen said cogongrass
is terrible for African subsistence
farmers, who can only hack away
at the grass with hoes, in hopes
of keeping it at bay."These farm-
ers have to fight this beast all the
time," Mr. Charudattan said.
In Jose's recent study, he
and graduate -student Alexandra
Collins wanted to test ecologist
Charles Elton's hypothesis that
the more species-rich a forest is,
the less vulnerable it is to invasive
species. They conducted studies
at two Santa Rosa County sites,
one that recently been cleared of
17-year-old loblolly pines and the
other, a longleaf pine forest. "Our
prediction was that with an ag-
gressive invader like cogongrass,
perhaps it didn't matter the num-
ber of species that were there.
And that's what we found," he
said."The moral of this story was
that it doesn't have a chance to
resist. And that is bad news."

Travelers are reminded that
weekday delays along U.S. 27
began July 16, as construction on
the Everglades Agricultural Area
(EAA) Reservoir continues.
Weekday road closures av-
eraging one- to two-hours are
required while technicians and
engineers blast through rock 150
feet from the western edge of
U.S. 27, creating a seepage canal
for the massive reservoir. This
will bring northbound and south-


bound traffic to a rolling stop
between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. In
unforeseen circumstances blasts
could occur as early as 8 -a.m. or
as late as 5 p.m. Construction will
continue for at least six months.
To avoid delays, drivers are en-
couraged to use alternate routes
including 1-595, 1-95, the Florida
Turnpike, S.R. 80 and 1-75.
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
storm water runoff from the Ever-
glades Agricultural Area.
For up-to-date traveler infor-
mation, drivers can call the Flor-
ida Department of Transportation
at 511, or visit the FDOT website

County commissioners asked
bidders questions to clarify their
abilities and then ranked them
in order of preference. The work
was awarded to Carl Perry who
was ranked first, followed by
Wright Construction, Rio-Bak
and AEC.
Commissioners then asked if
the bidders who were ranked af-
ter Mr. Perry could also be used if
more work was needed. Richard
Pringle, county attorney advised
that the county would have to
work through SFWMD. If more
funds were available the county
manager, Wendell Taylor, could
come before the board and get
authorization for another bid re-
sponder to go to work.
Benita Whalen, SFWMD,
commented that if more funds
became available the existing
agreement could be amended
depending on the scope of the
work.
Andy Powell, Wright Construc-
tion, questioned why the project
had not been awarded to the

that her office is collecting pho-


lowest bid, but was not required
to do so. Attorney Pringle stated
the documents were set up to
receive responses and the board
hadthe ability to select the re-
sponse that they believed was in
the best interest of the County, ac-
cording to the recorded minutes
of the meeting.
Later in May, SFWMD did ac-
quire additional funding for the
other dig sites on the northwest
shore of Lake Okeechobee includ-
ing Horse Island near the Harney
Pond canal sediment removal
site. Total funding for seven sites
amounted to $11.4 million.
Wendell Taylor then notified
Wright Construction, Rio-Bak and
AEC about the expanded work
project at Horse Island which had
a temporary disposal site nearby.
AEC declined the offer, but Wright
Construction contracted for $3.50
per cubic yard and Rio-Bak at
$4.00 per cubic yard. The differ-
ence in price reflects hauling dis-
tances to the temporary disposal
site.
At the same time Carl Perry
settled on a contract price of $8.00
per cubic yard. The job included
hauling permanently removed
muck to a site eleven miles away.
Hauling costs are one of the more
expensive aspects of excavation,
according to officials.

"We are starting a photo al-
bum for future generations to
enjoy. These kinds of pictures are
great," Ms. Snow said.
People interested in taking the


The Glades County manager's
office reports that 39 percent
of the Horse Island project was
completed, and 100 percent of
the Harney Pond sediment re-
moval was completed. Wendell
Taylor commented that Mr. Per-
ry's crew usually worked seven
days a week-night and day.
Don Fox closely observed the
laser guided excavation done at
Harney Pond Canal. He is the bio-
logical administrator for Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission in the Okeechobee
office. He recalled that the preci-
sion and effectiveness of the heavy
machinery and trucks worked to-
gether similar to music.
"Almost like an orchestra, it
flowed very well. They stayed on
top of it," said Mr. Fox.
SFWMD planned extensively
for the muck removal and was
urgent in its quest to have the
time sensitive project complet-
ed before the rainy season. In a
press release they stated that 1.9
million cubic yards of sediment
was removed.
"Lake Okeechobee is going
to be healthier as result of this
work," said Carol Ann Wehle, SF-
WMD executive director.

when we apply for the grant. We
can contract with the owners to
purchase the buildings, contin-
gent upon receipt of grant funds.
It is Main Street Moore Haven's
intent to contract with Roger Tay-
lor to purchase the Lundy Build-
ing and the former Moore Haven
Bank Building, commonly known
as Annetiques subject to negotia-
tion. The remaining funds would
be invested in the buildings to
rehabilitate them to prepare for
affordable housing rental units on
the second floor and'commercial
leasing on the ground. -
Under the terms of the grant
program, the 15 one-bedroom
efficiency apartment units tenta-
tively planned for rehab using this
grant must be made available to
low income families, including
very low income families during
the initial occupancy period fund-
ed by the grant.
However, there is no set re-
quirement for the length of this
occupancy period and represen-
tatives with Main Street Moore
Haven is looking into making
those units available as affordable
workforce housing units after the
first year, on a year-to-year basis.
The idea, representatives said,
is to use the rental units as a hous-
ing incubator, allowing tenants
to rent the apartments at below
market rate, while escrowing a
portion of their rent to assist with
the down payment. At the end
of the lease, the tenants would
be referred to SHIP for site-built
housing assistance.
The grant funds may also be

with other countries.
Ms. Topel mentioned the mo-
bility issues that rural people face,
such as not having a vehicle, or
not being able to commute great
distances to a job. Someday there
is the possibility that car pooling,
van pooling and some buses will
be used to transport workers to
their jobs.
Another agenda issue was
the sexual predators' ordinance


used not only for rehabilitation
of the affordable housing units
themselves, but for rehab that
extends to other portions of the
project, the building envelope,
to interior bearing walls of com-
mercial space located below the
affordable housing units and to
systems installation through com-
mercial space below the afford-
able housing units.
Main Street Moore Haven
members are also studying the
possibility of using funds to re-
pair/replace the roof of the Lundy
Building and its facade and make
such rehabilitation necessary to
allow the commercial space to be
leased.
Similarly, the funds could be
used, if necessary, to shore up the
foundation of the Moore Haven
Bank Building. Once that rehab is
completed, the new commercial
business incubator on Avenue J
can serve to encourage would-be
entrepreneurs to open new busi-
nesses in exchange for below-
market lease rates.
To qualify for the $1 million
grant, the group needs to provide
a five percent or $50,000 match.
This can be cash or land dona-
tion or in-kind services donated
to the project. It can be housing
trust funds, TIF funds, materials
and supplies, counseling services,
staff time of local government ap-
plicant or developer entity. Contri-
butions that have been made to or
are firmly committed to the Main
Street Area/rejuvenation effort as
a whole, including past or future
funding for other affordable hous-
ing, retail supportive services,
jobs and other economic devel-
opment that is part of the Main
Street rejuvenation effort can be


which has been drawn up by
county attorney, Richard Pringle.
The main discussion centered
on landlords actively participat-
ing in the background check of
potential renters. Commission-
ers requested that the docu-
ment be revised to simplify the
process for landlords to comply
with the county's enforcement of
residence restrictions on sexual
predators.
Three county commissioners
were appointed as members to
the Value Adjustment Board. The
board reviews appeals to deci-


used as leverage.
Off-site improvements contigu-
ous to the site, rehab of the com-
mercial space even if the rehab is
not an integral part of the rehab
of the rental space or rehab else-
where in the Main Street area, site
improvements such as repaving
or upgrading streets or side walks
and other uses that don't relate
directly to the Main Street afford-
able housing project, including
legal and administrative fees, also
count.
S For each match source, Main
Street Moore Haven must include
a letter stating the match amount
and that the match is firmly com-
mitted to the Main Street afford-
able housing project.
Main Street staff will provide
administrative services relative to
.the building acquisition, acquisi-
tion ol materials, supplies and
equipment and contracting ser-
vices. in addition to writing the
grant application itself. SHIP will
devise resident screening proce-
dures and assist with lease docu-
ments for the rental housing por-
tion. As members of the HOPE VI
Main Street team, the team will be
able to leverage the experience
of SHIP in affordable housing to
earn points on our application.
"It is our intent, by seeking the
HOPE VI grant, to bring new hope
to Main Street Moore Haven, by
providing new. rental housing
options to local residents, and
ne\\ commercial space for en-
trepreneuis.," said Tracy Whirls,
Program Manager, Main Street
Moore Haven. "We are hopeful
that if this effort is successful, that
others will be inspired to invest in
Main Street Moore Haven."

The board approved a request
from Wendell Taylor, county man-
ager, to award the bid to Wright
Construction/Crowther Roofing
for repairing Hurricane Wilma
damage to the roofs on the court-
house and the courthouse annex.
The money for repairs came from
insurance, FEMA and courthouse
funds.

What moves us forward or keeps us in chains is inside


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
"I can't!"
How many times have I heard
that! I taught an introductory
psychology course one year. My


students com-
plained that my
tests were "too
hard" and they
couldn't do
them. Actually,
the tests came
from standard-
ized questions
provided by the
publisher of the
textbook I used;


-f

Samuel S.
Thomas


each question with its own diffi-
culty index. I picked medium lev-
els, but the students complained
anyway. I'd ask "How come,
then, that some students got A's
if it was too hard? Why wasn't it
too hard for everybody?
Why can one person do it and
another can't?" I never really got


an answer. It was obvious that
the "can't" part was something
within each student; but so was
the "can" part for those who did
well.
It wasn't just in class that I've
heard it. People would tell me
about their dreams but then say
I can't do that."
"Why not?" I'd ask, but never
got much in the way of concrete
answers other than "just can't."
One man told me he wanted
to become a radio operator and
his friends said "That's for smart
people, you can't do anything like
that." It was enough to make him
decide to do whatever it took and
he went on to be very successful
at it.
Another person told me about
a dream to travel and see part
of the world, but came up with
reasons why it couldn't be done.
Family chipped in when they real-
ized the dream. She had a won-
derful time and went a second
time, once she realized it was
-possible after all.


A man who had always
dreamed about taking a trip
around the world never did. He
had the time and resources, con-
nections in the travel industry,
but passed away without fulfilling
that long-time dream.
I learned earlier in life that
some of the handicaps I suffered
were things I did to myself.
A student of human charac-
ter told about overcoming some
of the things .that bother us by
putting it this way: "If you have
someone following you, it is dif-
ficult to get rid of them; but if you
imagine they are following you, it
is impossible to get rid of them!"
Some of the greatest road-
blocks I've encountered have
come from within. People say
"I'm trapped" or "I can't change"
or "I can't do it." When we'd ex-
plore what was the blockage, it
wasn't where they found them-
selves or what others were doing
or what was going on outside
that suppressed them. Some of
the people that began seminary


studies with me dropped out be-
cause they found the seminary
wasn't "heaven on earth" or that
they would have to go to chapel
twice daily every day. (It was dif-
'ficult to imagine someone who
felt called to a vocation requiring
them to be always at the altar and
having difficulty attending chapel,
but it happened.)
There is a Biblical story about
a young man who asked Jesus
"What must I do to inherit eternal
life?(Mark 10:17)" and is told to
live a good life; to keep the com-
mandments. He told Jesus that
he had been doing those things
since he was a boy, and then is
told "One thing you lack (v.23)."
When it came to selling what
he has and giving to the poor, he
went away sad. It wasn't that he
was rejected or what was asked
was impossible, or that following
up on what he wanted was be-
yond his reach; it was just more
than he was willing to do and re-
ally didn't want eternal life that
badly.


'The American family of yesterday'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
I believe in America! I believe it
became great because of its faith
in God, its hope for independence,
and it love for freedom! I am awed
by its unbelievable present; I am
confident of its limitless future! I
am not ashamed to take my hat
off and to stand at attention when
Old Glory passes by. I do not apol-
ogize for the lump in my throat
when I repeat the Pledge of Alle-
giance! I am not embarrassed by


the tears in my eyes when I hear
"The Star Spangled Banner."
Like millions of Americans,
I want a free choice, not a ,free
handout. I prefer an opportunity
to prove my abilities on the job
rather than a license to demon-
strate my frustrations in the street.
I am an old-fashioned American
with a new-found determination
to do my part to make democracy
work!
In the America of yesterday
you paid your debts as quickly as


'2,.

(~;1
' i'3 *'


possible, and went without things
to do so. You disciplined your chil-
dren, but disciplined yourself first.
You spent less than you earned,
and demanded your government
maintain the same standard. You
went to church, and took your
children to Sunday School; you
held daily prayers and no court
would have dared interpose any
law into your private religion. You
would have been horrified at (and
quick to change) men in high


pected to prosper only by doing a
better and better job. You not only
obeyed the law, but took an ac-
tive part in government to see the
laws were just. You "walked soft-
ly, but carried a big stick." That
was the character which brought
this great country victory in three'
wars in the past century, built it
back from a shattering depression
and fed and saved the civilized
world (materially). I believe there
are enough righteous standards


places who made "deals." You ex- to do it again!


The idea of "I can't" came
from within, as it most often
does. When someone says "I'd
like to, but ..." I suggest that per-
haps the better question is "How
do I get from here to there?" and
then set out to make the journey.
People build great prisons for
themselves; stronger than any of
the "Greybar Hotels" that dot the
landscape.
There was a youngster who
came home from school one day
and complained about having to
do long division problems. His
mother commiserated with him
and said "I know. It's so hard.
You just can't do it, you can't pass
this year. You won't be able to get


into high school and then you
won't be able to go to college or
get a good job. You'll have to find
a bad job and nobody will want
to be around you. You'll have to
hang out with criminals and trou-
blemakers, and nobody will want
to marry you one day. You'll lead
a bad life and won't be able to get
into Heaven, it's really bad."
The kid said "Wait a min-
ute, Ma, it isn't that bad!" and it
wasn't. A lot of "I cant's" aren't
that bad either once the possi-
bilities are considered and faced
with optimism and faith in our-
selves. Dreams can and do come
true and we have a part in mak-
ing it happen.

Hear what I say; figure out what I mean L k keCnco

By Pastor John Hicks decided that the debate had to say the God is all around us." He days, there better not be one Meth-
United First Methodist be done without words. On the pointed down and said, "God is odist car left in the parking lot." I Co,,un,,ity Links. Individual Voices.


Church, Clewiston
Last night my wife asked me if
I was hot. I wasn't sure whether
it meant that was she was ask-
ing if I was sexy
or stating that
she wanted me
to turn down
the air. When
asked about it, '
she said it was a .
guy thing to be '
so obtuse. I fig- v: _.._
ure it's a women John
thing not to ask Hicks
something di-
rectly, but to challenge those of
us with male minds to hear what
they say and try to figure out what
they mean.
You've probably heard the
joke about the man who asked
his wife what she'd like for her
birthday. "I'd love to be six again,"
she replied. So, on the morning of
her birthday, he got her up bright
and early and off they went to a
local theme park. What a day! He
put her on every ride in the park.
Hours later, she staggered out of
the theme park, and he took her
right to a McDonald's for a Big
Kids Meal with extra fries and a
refreshing chocolate shake. Then
it was off to the movies, complete
with hot dogs and popcorn. What
a fabulous adventure. Finally she
wobbled home with her husband
and collapsed into bed. He leaned
over and lovingly asked, "Well,
dear, what was it like being six
again?" One eye opened, she said,
"I meant a dress size 6."
I can relate to that poor man.
Effective communication is im-
portant. Our United Method-
ist Campus Ministry at Stetson
University was right next to the
Baptist Student Union. Parking
was at a premium, and when a
survey revealed that there was a
large space between the campus
ministry units that belonged to no
one, both of our ministries were
interested in claiming that space
for parking.
It was decided that the Bap-
tist Campus minister (Bob) and
I would meet for a debate, with
the winner receiving the coveted
parking spaces. Because both of
us were very vocal, it was also

arranged date we met and drew
straws for who would go first.
Bob won.
Round one: Bob extended his
arms in a wide circle and brought
his hands together. I pointed
downward with my right finger.
Round two: Bob held up three
fingers, then one. I held up one
finger. Round three: Bob reached
under the counter and brought
out a loaf of bread and a cup of
juice. I scratched my head for a
moment or two, then reached
into my pocket and pulled out an
apple. At that, Bob announced
that the Methodists had won.
Back at the Baptist Student
Union, Bob explained what had
happened: "I circled my arms to


nere. He was rignt. In round two,
I held up three fingers then one
to share that the Father, Son, and
Holy Spirit are one. He said, "God
is one." He was right. In round
three, I took out the elements of
Holy Communion to share that
grace is offered to us. He took out
an apple to state that sin is still
here. He was right, and so they
win the debate.
Back at the Methodist Cam-
pus Ministry, I was explaining
my version of the debate. Bob
spread his arms saying, "All you
Methodists need to clear out of
the parking area." I pointed down
saying, "We're staying right here!"
In round two, Bob held up three
fingers then one, saying, "In three


nelu up uoe iniger saying, INot
one is leaving." What happened
in round three? "He took out his
lunch and I took out mine."
This event was totally made
up, and the Baptist Campus min-
ister and I always got along and
worked together; but this story
does illustrate a point. Is what we
understand we are saying getting
through to the ones we are trying
to communicate with? We may
know what we are saying, but
do they? Do they understand the
words we say or the terms we
use? Are our actions communi-
cating our words?
What we say and howwe say it
is important in our lives as people.
It is vital in our lives as Christians.

INI/Katrina Elsken
On large ranches, cows have plenty of room to graze, as well
as sources of water. Backyard farmers should consider the
amount of space needed for each animal before they buy any
livestock.


Can small properties


house large animals?


By MaryAnn Morris
INI/Florida
Having a farm in your own
backyard may be a lifelong dream
or be based on remembrances of
vacations to a relative's farm as
children. And it can be so if you
plan. UncleAl and Aunt Susie may
have had a far different scenario
in Idaho than backyard farmers in
Florida will encounter.
But if you want animals on
relatively little land as opposed to
many hundreds of acres, space is
a consideration. And the smaller
the plot the bigger the consid-
eration. Local laws often govern
the number and breed of animal
you may keep on your land and
private deed restrictions can also
be a consideration.
Also, to some extent the
bigger the animal, the bigger the
consideration.
For instance, can you keep
a horse, or a cow on an acre or
two? But where will you store
feed? How much feed will you
need to store? How much room
does it take up? What kind or
storage considerations? Closed
containers? Inside storage? Do
you own a vehicle you can use to
pick up feed and hay or will that
have to be purchased or will you
have to arrange for feed to be de-
livered?
That raises -- or drops the
next consideration. Manure.
The average horse produces


Backyard

Barnyard

10 tons of manure a year. Will you
haul it off? Compost it and put it
on the garden?
With enough acreage to pas1
ture your animals, some of those
questions are answered. Horse
manure will dry out then a lawn
mower set high will spread it to
provide organic fertilizer back
on the pasture. The price is right,
too!
Do the area veterinarians
make "house calls?" What do
they charge? Can you go together
with neighbors who also own
large animals and split the cost?
If you have a horse or two same
questions about the farrier.
If you have an acre or two or
three, will barnyard activities be
welcome in the neighborhood?
Are there deed restrictions that
prohibit some types of animals?
What about any odors? Check it
out.
But most of all, talk to your Ag-
ricultural Extension Agent. That
is the person and the organiza-
tion all farmers rely on for up to
the best, up to date information
about raising animals or crops on
the large or small place.
In Okeechobee County call
(863) 763-6469 to speak to an
agent.

fact sheet found online at: http://

This is the second time USDA
has conducted a signup for this
program, with its first signup held
last year following the enactment
of the Emergency Supplemental
Appropriations Act for Defense,
the Global War on Terror and Hur-
ricane Recovery 2006, Public Law
(PL.) 109-234. Congress originally
authorized the EFCRP, under PL.
109-148, as a pilot program to be
operated during calendar year
2006. The U.S. Troop Readiness,
Veterans' Care, Katrina Recovery
and Iraq Accountability Appro-
priations Act, 2007, P.L. 110-28,
signed by President Bush on May
25, removed the calendar year
restriction paving the way for this
latest signup.
FSA will rank offers based on
the potential to prevent sdil ero-
sion, improve waiter quality, re-
store wildlife habitat and mitigate
economic loss caused by hurri-
canes, and other factors. Those
rankings will be based on evalua-


tions performed by foresters. The
ranking of offers are scheduled to
occur quarterly. Eligible offers not
selected during a ranking period
will rollover to subsequent rank-
ing periodss.
After offer evaluation and ac-
ceptance, a forester will work
with the landowner to develop a
conservation plan. Enrolled land
will remain under contract with
USDA's Commodity Credit Cor-
poration (CCC) for 10 years. Par-
ticipants will receive 50 percent
cost-share assistance and may
select either a lump sum rental
payment or 10 annual rental pay-
ments. However, they may not
harvest standing timber from
enrolled land during the term of
the contract period, except when
CCC permits it as part of normal
forestland maintenance.
Acreage enrolled in Emergen-
cy Forestry Conservation Reserve
Program does not count toward
the per-county number of acres

ditional program information is
