DOT reports 1Z deaths in 2008


Drivers should use
caution during
October school
events
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY The local
community traffic safety team
met in early October, and exam-
ined a DOT traffic fatality report
listed by counties.
Accumulated deaths in Glades


County since the beginning of
2008 amount to 12, which in-
cluded six fatalities in an alcohol
related accident, Sept. 29, on S.R.
29. According to the report, traf-
fic fatalities in the entire year of
2007 amounted to three. It was
noted at the meeting that nine
of this year's deaths occurred
along a stretch of S.R. 29 from
the county line near LaBelle to
the intersection of S.R. 29 and
U.S. 27.
The nine fatalities in this sec-
tion of the county were a result
of three accidents: one collision


at the intersection of S.R. 29 and
U.S. 27 had one fatality, a sec-
ond wreck near the Pollywog
Crossover had two fatalities; and
recently, a third wreck at the in-
tersection of S.R. 29 and S.R. 78
killed six. Heavy trucks were in-
volved in these accidents.
Sergeant DonaldWatts, school
resource officer, reminded every-
one to be cautious while driving
locally in October, because of
school related activities. A high
school homecoming game and
parade are scheduled for Oct. 17,
and senior night coincides with

meets


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
Taking land off the tax roll
again was an issue for Glades
County Officials Tuesday as
They heard a presentation on
the Caloosahatchee River pro-
tection plan from officials with
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District.
The district proposes to cre-
ate storage areas in the river
basin'between Moore Haven
and the west coast of Florida.
The goal is to reduce nutrients,
phosphorus and other pbllu-
'tion in the river.
Commissioners said agri-
culture is not strong and tak-
ing land off the tax roll wasn't
going to help taxpayers'either.
"How do you expect to get
blood from a turnip?" County
Commissioner Russell Echols
said.
Echols said citrus, cattle
and other agriculture industries
are struggling right now. He
pointed out that a dairy buyout
in the 1980's in Okeechobee
County didn't seem to lower
phosphorus levels in the Lake.
He said he doubted this effort
will work.
The District intends to have
430,000 acre feet of water stor-
age in the basin. That could re-
sult in a large amount of land
coming off the tax roll.
SFWMD Okeechobee Ser-
vice Center Director Gary Ritter
said no specific property, other
than Barry Groves near Labelle,
has been identified for water
storage projects. He noted the
reservoir and storm water treat-
ment area has just completed
the design phase.
Commissioners also hon-
ored Florida Department of
Transportation liaison Susan
King upon her retirement.


Chairman Paul Beck read a let-
ter into the record that praised
King's support of Glades Coun-
ty road projects.
Glades County also is in the
process of training a second full
time code enforcement officer.
The County also agreed to
fund a mailer that explains to
residents the proposal on the
November ballot to create a
Tourist Development Council
in Glades County.
Glades County Economic
Development Director Tracy
Whirls said the bed tax will
provide money to the County
to promote their tourism. The
initial bed tax could generate
approximately $36,000 per
year. The EDC would cover part
of the costs for the printing and
the address labels.
Clerk of the Court Joe Flint
said the money would come
from reserves. Approximately
6,600 mailers would be sent to
.eligible voters in the County.
The first phase of canal
cleaning projects for the Pearce
Canal, Dyess Ditch and the
Moore Haven Canal will be pre-
sented to the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District Gov-
erning Board at their November
meeting. County Manager
Wendell Taylor said a contract
with'the Florida Department of
Environment Protection permit
for the Pearce canal has been
finalized. The next step is de-
sign and engineering.
A surplus auction of Glades
County equipment and prop-
erty will be held on October 25
at the Road and Bridge depart-
ment on State Road 78 west.

Clewiston Edges 20-19 win

Tiger Keon Ward sets sail for open territory.


By Jeff Barwick
The Tigers squeaked by the
upstart Crusaders in a key district
game at Sam Budnyk Stadium,
improving their record to 4-2
overall and .1-0 in District 2A-6.
Clewiston entered the game
with two key starters out due to
injuries and quarterback Isandro
Marquez and center/linebacker
Dillon Irey dressed but held out
due to bruises.
Late in the contest, both were
called into duty and were instru-
mental in the comeback win,
The victory was sealed with
2:34 left in the contest when quar-
terback Isandro Marquez swept
the right side for a 7-yard touch-
down on a fourth and goal.
Marquez, other than punting
and placekicking duties, sat out
most of the game nursing a sore
shoulder.
Afterwards he said, "I -was
begging Coach Roth the whole
game to play and I finally got the
chance. We called a roll out pass
but both receivers were covered
so I just pulled it down and went
for it"
Clewiston tailback Darris
Hughes scored the. other Tiger
touchdowns on a nifty pair of 80
yards jaunts, finishing the game
with 260 yards on 21 carries.
'.After' seeing double duty all
night, a tired Hughes said, "We
- had:two terrible days of practice
and came in very flat. On that
winning drive, the front line went
to work and got the job done."
The Crusaders took the open-
ing kickoff and marched 77 yards
on 10 short runs and three pass
completions and eating up over 8
minutes off the clock.
Tailback Lee Williams got the
score on a yard dive. Kicker Bren-
dan Gibbons' effort was blocked
by Tiger defensive end Adam
Trevino' and that proved to be the
margin of victory. It was Trevino's
third block of the season.
After a touchback on the kick-
off, Clewiston wasted no time as
Hughes took a handoff off the left
side and ripped up the sidelines
for an 80-yard score. Marquez
split the uprights on the point af-
ter to give the Tigers a 7-6 lead.
Late in the second period, the
Crusaders were aided by three
Tiger penalties as they drove 64
yards on 9 snaps with Williams
running for the last 19 yards.
Gibbons added the point after
and the half ended with the Tigers
trailing, 13-7.
Clewiston took the second half
kickoff at their 20 after another
touchback by Gibbons, a kicker
certainly headed for a college
football team.
Again, the first snap saw
-ughes rumbling up the middle,
veering to the outside and racing
for another 80-yard touchdown
run.
Marquez tacked on the extra
point to slide the Tigers to a 14-13
advantage.
Gibbons put the Crusaders


back on top late in the period with
a 50-yard field goal and added to
the cushion when he hit another
field goal, this one from 44 yards
out.
. The Tigers, after yet another
Gibbons touchback on the kick-
off, began at their 20.
Tiger Coach Joe Roth then
inserted a banged-up Irey into
the center position to bolster the
blocking.
Hughes rattled off 5 straight
runs, the last for a 32-yard gain.
On the next play, back-up
quarterback Jonathan Brown
had difficulty with the snap but fi-
nally got the ball into the hands of
back-up tailback Keon Ward who
bounced outside and raced to the
Crusader 1-yard stripe before be-
ing shoved out of bounds.
'Io Hughes' runs into the line
provided nothing and then the Ti-
gers were penalized five yards for
illegal procedure.
Marquez had slipped into the
game and rolled to his right look-
ing for either the fullback or4tight
end but both were covered.
He then tucked the ball away
and headed straight u'p field and
collided with three Crusaders as
he crashed into the end zone with
only 2:34 left in the game.
The Tigers went for two points.
on the conversion and the pass
failed but they finally were back
on top, 20-19.
The Crusaders tried desper-
ately to get within field goal range
for Gibbons. A stout Tiger defense
and two costly penalties shut
down the drive and they turned
the ball over on downs.
From there, Clewiston ran out
the clock.
Tiger defensive end Adam.
Trevino led the effort with 10
tackles and the key blocked extra
point.
Defensive back Damian Smith,
linebackers Duke Ewan and Fred
Washington each had 5 solo tack-
les.
Smith intercepted a Crusader
pass and returned it 32 yards on
the last play of the first half.
He also made a picture perfect
pass defense to stop the Crusad-
ers on their desperation drive late
in the game.
Washington had a fumble re-
covery to snuff a Cardinal New-
man drive at the end of the open-
ing quarter.
Clewiston coach Joe Roth was
relieved the game was over.
,He said, "We came in with
four key starters out and we need
to get healthy with our open date
coming up. Isandro showed to-
night why he is one of our cap-
tains. That was a gutsy run he
made to win the game."
Clewiston now has a week off
to nurse the bumps and bruises.
They'll host.Pope John Paul II on
Oct. 24 in another District 2A-6
game.
TailbAck Darris Hughes now
has 1,260 yards rushing on the
season and is the second leading

Glades Day scores Taylor-made victory


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE Glades Day's
homecoming game against Evan-
gelical Christian likely won't soon
be forgotten.
In the Gators 43-36 home vic-
tory over the Sentinels, it was an
eighth-grader that led the way in
this unpredictable contest.
For starters, no one at Gator
Field thought that it would prove
to be a close game.
After all, in Glades Day's last
three home meetings with Evan-
gelical Christian, all wins, the
combined score was 108-0.
In addition to that, Evangelical
Christian wasn't even in the mix
for last year's District 6-1A play-.
offs, finishing with a 1-2 district
record.
But Glades Day needed a ca-
reer game from Kelvin Taylor,
who is the son of Glades Central
alum and current Jacksonville
Jaguars running back Fred Taylor.
The eighth-grader had 26 car-
ries for 228 yards and three touch-
downs in the District 6-1A opener
for both teams.
That makes it Taylor's fifth
consecutive game in which he
has rushed for more than 100
yards.
For an eighth-grader, that's
nothing short of impressive.
He scored Glades Day's sec-
ond touchdown of the game, a
2-yard.run with 4:02 left in the
opening quarter.
In addition, Taylor accounted
for both of the Gators second
half touchdowns, which included
a 2-yard run with 7:14 left in the
third quarter and a 1-yard run to
end the quarter.
"Bay-Bay (Kelvin Taylor)
came out and played like he usu-
ally does," said Deandre Jackson,
Glades Day's top wide receiver.
"He ran the ball hard and showed
some maturity as a running
back."
If Taylor made the difference
in the running game, Jackson did
the same thing on the passing
front.
Jackson, who had a season-
high seven receptions for 160
yards, caught two touchdown
passes from quarterback Bo
Schlecter.
Jackson's first receiving touch-
down came on the game's ini-
tial-driye, a 16-vard throw from
+ Schlecter with 8:12 left in the first
quarter.
That put Glades Day up 7-0.
Evangelical's defense seem-
ingly had no answer for Glades
Day's skill position players as the
Gators scored touchdowns on its
first six drives, which accounted
for the first three quarters of the-
game.
Jackson caught his second
touchdown on a 15-yard pass
from Schlecter with 3:26 left in
the first half.
Schlecter was 12-for-16 with
215 passing yards and two touch-
downs for the game.
Pete Walker, Glades Day's
head coach, was thoroughly im-
pressed with the performances of
both Jackson and Schlecter.
"Deandre did well after the
catch, played both ways and has
an all-around game," Walker said
of the Suncoast transfer, who
also logged in time as a defensive
back. "Bo had a great game, got
receivers open, did a good job
mixing things up for us."
Walker may be proud of the
fact that Glades Day had 24 first
downs in the game, while scor-
ing on their first six drives, which
spanned for three quarters.
However, Glades Day needed
all of that offensive output to win
this game, as the Gators defense
had lots of trouble stopping Sen-
tinels junior quarterback Colton
Lynch.
Lynch (18 carries, 228 yards,
1 TD; 8-16 passing, 126 yards,
3 TDs) was just too much for
Glades Day's defense to handle,
scoring on a 37-yard run with 6:10
left in the first.
Evangelical's first touchdown,
which was an answer to Jack-
son's 16-yard scoring catch about
two minutes earlier, made it 7-6 in
favor of Glades Day.
The Sentinels tied the game
up, 14-14, after Lynch threw
an 18-yard touchdown pass to
sophomore wide receiver An-
drew Chebator with 55 seconds
left in the first. It preceded a suc-
cessful two-point conversion
run by Lynch. That scoring drive
answered Taylor's 2-yard touch-.
down run, which put Glades Day
up 14-6.
Evangelical stayed close
throughout the first half, pull-
ing within one point on a 5-yard
score by running back Jonathan
Skaff with 2:02 left in the second.


Glades Day led 21-20 at that
point before senior Jarrett Swaby
(six carries, 59 yards) extended
the lead on a 3-yard touchdown
run with 55 seconds left in the
half. Swaby's score put the Gators
up 28-20 at halftime.
But after it seemed like Glades
Day would pull away in the third


quarter, Evangelical made the
fourth quarter very interesting.
Down 43-20, after Glades Day
freshman Tanner Redish loses a
fumble with 6:14 left, the Senti-
nels started at their own 40 yard
line.
Lynch, who made a 23-yard
run for a first down on the scoring
drive, threw a 37-yard touchdown
to Skaff (four catches, 92 yards,
two TDs) with 5:35 left.
The score, now 43-28 in favor
of Glades Day, changed again as
the duo hooked up for a 41-yard
strike with just 2:30 left.
After Evangelical converted
on a two-point conversion, they
elected to go for the onside kick.
Fortunately for the Glades Day
faithful, the Gators recovered the
kick and ran out the game clock.
"You could see the caliber
of athletes we have and what
Glades Day has," said Evangelical
head coach Brian Lynch, whose
team has only three seniors and
19 overall.
"Glades Day's athletes appear
to be superior compared to us.
"But we fought and battled
them to a really close game," he
continued. "We are the strongest
little team I've ever seen, I can't
take anything away from them."
Walker was obviously not
pleased with how his defense
.performed, as Glades Day al-
lowed 307 total rushing yards to
Evangelical.
"#12 (Lynch) is a great ath-
lete, we didn't tackle him well,"
Walker said.
"We need to work on our
tackling and get better at it," the
Glades Day coach continued.
"Defensively, we're not playing
well right now."
Glades Day (3-2; 1-0 District
6-1A) has allowed more than 300
rushing yards for the third con-
secutive game.
Tomorrow night, they'll be at
home against American Heritage-
Delray Beach, who is the defend-
ing Class IA state champions.
The Gators, who have lost two
straight games to the Stallions,
hope to avenge last year's 33-8
regular season loss and 28-7 state
semifinal defeat.
Fortunately for Glades Day,
they, won't have to face Justin
Feagin, who single-handedly
torched their defense in both
games last season.
The American Heritage-Delray
graduate is now playing for the
University of Michigan.
"We must control the ball on
offense and tackle on defense if-
we want to beat American Heri-
tage," Walker said. "It's up for
grabs, either team can win on
Friday."
Pahokee 42, Melbourne
Central Catholic 3: Emmanuel


Perez, starting for the first time,
was 13-for-19 passing with 128
yards and two touchdowns in the
win.
The sophomore's touchdown
passes went to junior wide receiv-
er Zachary Allen (three catches,
61 yards) and senior Nu'Keese
Richardson (two catches, seven
yards).
Pahokee's other scores, which
came on runs, were from Vincent
Smith (17 rushes, 182 yards, 3
TDs) and Richardson (two rush-
es, 16 yards, 1 TD).
The Blue Devils, who had their
32-game winning streak snapped
on Oct. 3 against Byrnes,. S.C.
(school record), limited the Hus-
tlers to eight total first downs and
161 total yards.
Pahokee (5-1; 2-0 in District
7-2B play) is off this weekend.
They won't play again until
Oct. 24 against John Carroll, a
road game.
SGlades Central 35, Cardi-
nal Gibbons 30: Raiders quar-
terback Leron 'L.J.' Thomas (20-
for-31 passing, 284 yards, 4 TDs)
came through in the clutch for the
second game in a row.
Only this time, he threw a
game-winning 3-yard touchdown
pass to Fred Pickett with 28 sec-
onds left in the fourth quarter.
The clutch play came after
Glades Central was down 30-28
late in the game.
That's Thomas' fourth game-
winning pass this season, which
includes a 17-yard pass to James
West in the Raiders 6-0 quadruple
overtime win over Dwyer on Oct.
4. As usual, after Glades Central
wins a close game, it ends with a
big defensive play.
Antwon Chisolm (five rushes,
47 yards, 1 TD) caught the game-
ending interception after a Hail
Mary attempt from the Redskins.
Glades Central's other touch-,
downs came from Rantavious
Wooten (four catches, 94 yards,
1 TD), Kevin Benjamin (three
catches, 75 yards, 1 TD) and An-
tonio McCloude (five catches, 16
yards, 1 TD; six rushes, 31 yards).
Surprisingly, the District 15-3A
opener for both teams was close
throughout on the strength of
Redskins running game, led by
Dareyone Chance.
The Redskins running back
finished with 21 rushes for 124
Yards and a touchdown.
Glades Central (6-0; 1-0 in Dis-
trict 15-3A play) is off tomorrow
night. The Raiders play their next
game Oct. 24 on the road against
Archbishop McCarthy.
St. John Neumann 25,
Moore Haven 6: The other
District 6-1A opener did not go
as planned for the Terriers, as a,
bench-clearing brawl and two
rain delays played key roles in


their defeat.
According to published re-
ports, after the brawl, which
wasn't discussed in detail, two
Moore Haven players were eject-
ed from the game.
That played well into St. John
Neumann's hands, as last year's
District 6-1A runner-up roughed
up Moore Haven quarterback
Dalton Britt, who was sacked four
times in the game.
Britt (9-for-26 passing, 141
yards, 1 TD) was picked-off five
times, including a 53-yard inter-
ception return for a touchdown
by Celtics defensive back Austin
Nelz, who caught two INTs in the
game.
That defensive score was the
last one in the district game.
In all fairness, Moore Haven
was down 13-6 going into the
fourth quarter, so they could have
easily came back and won the
their home game.'
But St. John Neumann did an
excellent job in shutting down
Fred Hall, who finished with
a season-16w 13 carries for 14.
yards.
Overall, the Terriers running
game was anemic, finishing with
-23 rushing yards.
Moore Haven (4:1; 0-1 in Dis-
-trict 6-1A play) won its first four
regular season on the strength of
Hall'S performances.
The junior's four-game streak
of 100-yard running games was
snapped in the loss.
About the only thing that the
Celtics couldn't stop was Terriers
wideout Xavier Fagan, who fin-
ished with seven catches for 125
yards and a touchdown.
Fagan, who now has 624 re-
ceiving yards in just five games,
is the state's No. 2 receiver, ac-
coridng to MaxPreps Florida. He
is just 19 yards shy of overtak-
ing Sebring's Devin Clarke (643
yards) for the state lead. The of-
fense, for St. John Neumann (2-3;
1-0 in District 6-1A play) was led
by Will Affleck, who rushed f6r
69 yards on 22 carries. He scored
both of the Celtics rushing touch-
downs, which put them up 13-0
in the first quarter.
Moore Haven crept to within
seven points after Fagan's 28-yard
touchdown grab from Britt.
After no team scored in the
third quarter, St. John Neumann
put the Terriers to bed after quar-
terback Anthony Demao threw a
24-yard strike to Ashley Radcliffe.
Radcliffe accounted for 55 re-
ceiving yards (118 overall) against


the previously stingy Terrier de-
fense.
Moore Haven allowed 172
rushing yards and 227 overall.
Tomorrow night, the Terriers
will play their homecoming game
against Miami-Northwest Chris-
tian.


Next Friday will be a do-or-die
game for the Terriers as they play
on the road against Evangelical
Christian.
The loser of the Oct. 24 Moore
Haven-Evangelical Christian game
will be eliminated from the Class
1A playoffs this season.

but online comments get posted faster and not all phone calls
can be printed. What follows is a sampling of some of the
discussions currently taking place. Thanks for participating!
A NEEDED CHANGE: With all due respect, is "Recreation" the an-
swer to Glades County's problems? I'm all for tourism and recreation
for our area, but do you see any stores for these people to shop at?
Any hotels/motels for these people to stay in? A city and county whose
citizens don't even keep their own yards clean? Why would ANYONE
want to come to a place like this? To fish? Do you see a nice marina in
town? Restaurants? Entertainment? Come on, wake up people. You
can't be that blind. I've lived here my whole life and I can assure you
that 20 years ago this place was a lot better off than it is now! It even
looked nicer! What a shame! We better get some kind of industry in
here quick or you are going to see Glades County divided up among
her neighboring counties and we will be no more. Right now, indus-
try is the ONLY answer. Pray for the inland port. It is our only hope.
SCHOOL IMPROVEMENTS: Our schools are lacking. My children
were in the Elementary School for 2 years, then I yanked them out
to home school them. The teachers are not teachers (my kids had a
nurse and a store manager both were clearly not comfortable around.
children), and the leaders are only interested in holding an office for
looks and not for the kids. I had the unfortunate displeasure of meet-
ing this guy a few weeks ago, he can not even hold an intelligent con-
versation yet someone (not me) keep voting him into office. To those
who voted that way, you are killing our kids from the inside out. The
mind is all our children have, so lets just kill their minds and let them
stagnate and smell like the dump and then wonder why our poverty
level is like it is. That would be because its hard to get into college
when you can not pass entrance exams and have never been properly
prepared with the most simple of skills. I say this to everyone I meet.
We need change for our children! It just gets back to no one listening
and all the oldies refusing to change, even though they do not have
kids in these schools. How horrible does a school have to be that the
state sends out letters letting you know how bad your school is? I do
not understand why it is being allowed to stay this way, and I have sent
more than a dozen letters to the state about it, lets just pray that one
day someone listens. "Vote them all out, they are obviously to stupid
to see reality."
YOUTH ACTIVITIES: I discovered a long time ago how hard it is
to find decent things for kids to do around this county. Unfortunately
this county has forgotten our youth, and will regret it in the end. All 4-H
is almost non-existent, there are no other barn or ranch groups here
for kids, even sports is so poor here it is beyond belief. I inquired about
4-H just a year or two back and was basically told they would send
out a book and will see you at the festival, wow... that's a lot of help
for kids. The sports is driven by those insane parents you see on TV
who kill each other over who's kid is better, I have seen this with my
own eyes. I do not understand why Glades County is like this. If I had
the money, and people around here did not feel the swamp land was
made of gold, I would sure put something together for the children.
They are ALL of our future! I know it requires a drive, but most people
just do what I have done, and join 4-H in other counties. I go to Lee
county for ours and the kids love it, and the people truly care.

Flesh-eating plants are no match for the habitat eaters


By Angela Sachson
UF/IFAS Extension'Service
You probably recall the peo-
ple-eating plant of the "Little Shop
of Horrors". And, of course there
are the Venus fly trap and Pitcher
plant that trap insects and devour
them.
But much more frightening
are the INVASIVE ALIENS! These
DEADLY KILLERS invade our
landscapes and kill native plants
in their paths. The result is loss of
plant life, disappearance of native
wildlife, increased threat of fire,
and loss of precious biodiversity.
According to the Florida Exotic
Pest Plant Council (EPPC) inva-
sive exotic pest plants are biologi-
cal pollutants. Menacing exotics
may be responsible for destroying
more natural habitat each year
than is destroyed through land
development.
.Most often these invasive
aliens, also called exotics, (i.e.,
not from here) have been import-
ed from other countries or even
other parts of our country.
Some came in accidentally in
agricultural or freight shipments.
Others were deliberately import-
ed by unknowing entrepreneurs
or even government agencies.
Kudzu -- known as "the plant that
ate the South" -- was imported to
control soil erosion in Dixie. It is
now said that if you stand still it,
will grow over you in minutes.
Many of these aliens were
brought here before there were
concerns or regulations about
such plants. But now we know


that when plants are introduced
to a new location, they come with-
out the native climate, diseases or
insect pests that kept them under
control. With no natural enemies,
they can just keep growing and
reproducing, displacing our na-
tives and disrupting natural com-
munities.
Most of the 25,000 or so spe-
cies of plants that have been
brought into Florida are relatively
harmless. We depend on some of
these species for our sustenance
and economy. Citrus, for exam-
ple, is not a native Florida plant
but originated in Southeast Asia.

How to determine
which plants are the
bad guys.
There are lots of plant lists,
including lists of which plants
are a "little invasive" and which
are more invasive and which are
most invasive. All of these lists
make it hard to know just what
not to plant.
Here are the facts.
Some plants are considered so
invasive that they have been legally
outlawed. In our state three agen-
cies can make that determina-
tion. They are the US Department
of Agriculture (USDA), the Florida
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) and the Florida
Department of Agriculture. Their
rules are stated in these terms --
"Under no circumstances will this
species be permitted for posses-
sion, collection, transportation,


cultivation, and importation."
These are plants we hear of often
like Brazilian Pepper, Melaleuca,
and Water Hyacinth. You can't
purchase them even though they
may endup in your yard.
Seeds from invasive plants
can be spread by wind (e.g., Old
World Climbing Fern), by water
(Melaleuca trees), or by wildlife
that eat the fruit and deposit the
seeds far from the original place
(Brazilian pepper adored by,
robins). Others spread from ex-
panding underground root sys-
tems (Australian pine and Erect
sword fern).
Many plants are considered
invasive aliens but they have not
been outlawed. These are plants
which may not have escaped into
wild habitats YET. 'To agen-
cies provide excellent informa-
tion about those plants; they are
the University of Florida (http://
aquatl .ifas.ufl.edu/guide/inv-
plant.html) and the Florida Exotic
Pest Plant Council (http://www.
fleppc.org/index.cfm).
These lists classify plants ac-
cording to level of expansion and.
also by area of Florida. You may
be surprised to find some old fa-
miliars 'listed there, like Wedelia,
Surinam Cherry, Lantana and As-
paragus Fern.
Next time you want to plant
something, look it up on these
websites. You may save yourself
some time battling these fast
spreaders and habitat killers.
No Quick Fix
What to do? It will take all of


us to battle this increasing threat
to biodiversity and here are some
things to do right now.
1. Learn to recognize plants
on the invasive species list. Check
out references with photos of
Florida invasive plants (e.g. http://
plants.ifas.ufl.edu/photos.html).
Chances are you've seen quite
a few of these plants. Ask us for
some other suggested titles.
2. Start at home. Many invasive
exotic plants are unknowingly
planted and maintained in our
landscapes. Identify these plants,
remove these offensive weeds (or
at least remove any fruits), and
replace with more appropriate
plants instead. Consider using true
Florida natives. Attractive replace-
ments are commercially available
at nurseries or garden centers. For
more plant suggestions, contact
your county extension office.
3. Spread the word (not the
weed). Tell others about this
threat and encourage them to
avoid invasive weeds too!

Letters to the Editor


Unfair
Several weeks ago an un-
signed article in the Democrat
listed several negative things ac-
cusing Sheriff Whiddon of things
like "Taking credit for things done
by Sheriff Ryder, Deputies not re-
sponding to calls, not trained, out
of control "etc..
I was surprised by the article
being printed with no named
writer. I find this to be problem-
atic for several reasons.


I consider both the Sheriff
and Tony Wilson to be friends of
mine.
If the accusations are true then
Sheriff Whiddon does have prob-
lems that need to be addressed or
changed.
Absent any signature on the
article how much faith does the
writer expect us to have in his or
her opinion?
I do not think favorably of the
press for printing this article or any


article with such content without
,identifying the writer.
On the other hand since I
know Tony Wilson was not the
source, it is unfair to leave the
impression with the reader that
perhaps he was.
As a retired Law Enforcement
Officer with 30 years experience,
the quality and professionalism of
the Sheriff's office performance
in Glades County is of importance
to me.


Sheriff Whiddon and Tony
Wilson know this, as I have had
conversations with both over the
past four to five years concerning
just that.
Perhaps a follow up report is
in order to clarify questions raised
by this article. I think The Glades
County Democrat owes that to
it's readers and the regardless of
party voting public.

Lady Tigers add new staff




Elton J. ""Dr.. G" Gissendanner
District 77 State Representative


Submitted photo
The Clewiston Lady Tigers continues to sharpen their volleyball skills, posting impressive
wins against other area teams.


CLEWISTON -- New coaches'
have been added to the staff of
the JV and Varsity girls' volleyball
teams this year and the players
have learned a lot under their di-
rection.
George Duckstein and Al Perry
join previous coach Dace Garza
in coaching the Lady Tigers.
Their record has already im-
proved over past seasons.
The girls are all getting more
detailed instruction on the game,
its positions, and ball handling;
encompassing serving, digging,
setting and spiking.
They are learning to bring their
new skills all together to control
the ball against their opponents.
The JV team is a sign of things
to come. The freshmen, sopho-
mores and juniors all competed


in a JV tournament at Evangelical
Christian School in Ft. Myers Sept.
26 27, and ended up in 9th place
out of 18 teams.
They won 3 games out of 4,
even though they were missing
their Libero Samantha Ortiz (Jr)
who was in Texas competing in
the Miss Teen Latina Pageant.
The girls communicated well
and never gave up as they com-
peted against teams who most-
likely play volleyball all year round
in tournaments.
Varsity is showing much im-
provement in confidence and ball
handling skills.
After a few quirks on rotations
against Avon Park, the first game
of the year, the Tigers went on. to
defeat Moore Haven, Pahokee,
Immokalee, and Gateway Char-


ter. Games lost are against strong
programs in Lake Placid, So. Ft
Myers, LaBelle and Lemon Bay.
The girls practice their new
skills regularly against the Clewis-
ton Boosters and other coaches
at CHS.
The games are fun to watch,
and the team would like to invite
you out to watch them play. It is a
$4 admission fee, and a conces-
sion stand is available.
The remaining schedule for
home games is:
Oct 14, LaBelle (5th place) JV
at 6pm Varsity at 7pm District
Game
Oct 16, Riverdale (1st place)
JV at 6pm Varsity at 7pm District
Game

FLW Stren Tournament


2009

INI Florida This information
is being released to eliminate any
misinformation that anglers and
businesses may have received re-
garding the 2009 FLW Stren Tour-
nament.
It has been confirmed by Mr.
Bill Taylor, Director of Tournament
Operations for FLW Outdoors, in
order to meet scheduling and ad-


vertising responsibilities, the deci-
sion regarding the location of the
2009 FLW Stren Tournament had
to be made in June of 2008.
Due to the low lake levels at
that time, it was decided to hold
the tournament in Clewiston in-
stead of Okeechobee as planned.
With uncertainty of lake levels
rising during this decision period,
even with low lake levels the an-
glers could still fish the rim canal
in Clewiston and the FLW Stren
Tournament would still remain in

Is online banking Births


safe to rely on?


By Diane Timmons
INI Florida
A few weeks ago, I was listen-
ing to the radio and heard a dis-
cussion of online banking. You
may have heard it too. This partic-
ular discussion was about a study
released in July, 2008 that pointed
out flaws in some banks' online
security system. It was written by
researchers at the University of
Michigan.
That's why I'm writing this
column about security when you
are banking online. Some seniors
Seem slow to bank online, but
some are finding banking online
liberating. Most employees pay-
checks are direct deposited and
you never see a live check. So-
cial security has mandated that
checks will be deposited directly
to our bank. Online banking is the
logical next step.
My reason for writing on this
topic is to reassure you that by
taking a few, careful steps you
will be able to bank safely online.
Enjoy the convenience of on-
line banking to:
Move money from one
account to another.
Check your bank bal-
ance from home.
Keep watch on the daily
changes to your account,
and much more.
With a few precautions you
can bank safely online.
First, make sure your bank
has a clear statement or policy
regarding accessing your funds
with your computer. For'exam-
ple, Bank of America has the fol-
lowing guarantee to protect you
the customer. "Our safe Internet
banking measures guarantee
$0 liability for any unauthorized
activity originating from Online
Banking, including Bill Payment."
You also must agree to notify the
bank if your password is ever sto-
len, within a certain time frame.
Second, pay attention and do
the following things when you
are banking online.
1.Before you log on, make
sure you type the bank's internet
address into your browser's ad-
dress line. You should save this
safe address in your favorites for
use next time. Do not ever click a
link from an email that appears to
be from your bank. Thieves can
be pretty clever and set up a site
That is identical to your bank's.
2.When the page comes up

\O


where you need to input your
user ID, look at the address line in
your browser. Look for https:/ at
the beginning of the web address.
Notice the "s" that stands for se-
curity. For the duration of your
visit, the "s" should be visible in
that address. Question your bank
if it's not there.
.3Most banks and credit unions
now use a two-page sequence to
log into your financial informa-
tion. On the first page you will
be asked for your user ID, then
a second page appears with a
Picture. Only you and your bank
know which picture you chose
when you set up to bank online.
So when the picture appears, and
there is an "s" in the address at
the top of your browser address
line, it is safe to enter your pass-
word.
4.Passwords. A good pass-'
word is at least eight characters
long with both lower case and
upper case letters. Put a number
somewhere in.the middle. Don't
use your child's name or your
street address or phone number.
Those are too easily guessed.
Do use the name of your first el-
ementary school, for example,
or the make of your first car, with
a number in the middle. For ex-
ample, "Green84wood" is a good
password only because it follows
the rules and I'll remember it be-
cause it means something to me.
If it is never written down, no one
can steal it from you.
Don't bank at a public com-
puter. Save your banking tasks for
your home computer.
These same rules apply to
paying bills online, with one dif-
ference. There is no response pic-
ture and usually your user ID and
password are requested on the.
same page. I pay all my bills on-
line including electric, insurance,
and mortgage.
So don't let the fear generated
by yet another story about online'
banking keep you from a com-
puter capability that is so conve-
nient. The Internet is not going
away and online banking and
bill paying will only increase. We
need to learn how to do it safely.
See you next Monday-happy
computing.

Many newspapers aggressively push the opinions of their publishers or
corporate owners.

But we don't think it's our place to tell people what to think, or to try to
control public opinion. Our editors insist on purposeful neutrality. We try
to report the news fairly and facilitate a fair but vigorous discussion of
public issues.

We are proud to be journalists, not power brokers. And we're proud to
understand the difference.

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.

Mahoney responds to rumors


PALM BEACH GARDENS --
For the second time consecutive
campaign years, the Florida Con-
gressional District Race has been
rocked by a sex scandal.
ABC News reported Monday
that Congressman Tim Mahoney
(D-FL), whose predecessor Mark
Foley resigned in the wake of a
sex scandal, agreed to a $121,000
payment to a former mistress
who worked on his staff and was
threatening to sue him, according
to current and former members
of his staff who have been briefed
on the settlement, which involved
Mahoney and his campaign com-
mittee.
The ABC report continued:
"Mahoney, who is married, also
promised the woman, Patricia Al-
len, a $50,000 a year job for two
years at the agency that handles
his campaign advertising, the
staffers said."
The news report stated that Ms.
Allen and Mr. Mahoney reportedly
became involved during his 2006


campaign. "Following his elec-
tion in 2006, Alien was hired, at
taxpayers expense, to work on
Mahoney's Congressional staff
in Florida, at a yearly salary of
$36,000," the ABC web site report
stated. "After complaints about
the affair circulated in Wash-
ington, Alien was moved to the
campaign staff, the staffers say.
Friends of Allen told ABC News
that Alien sought to break off the
affair when she learned Mahoney
was allegedly involved in other
extra-marital relationships at the
same time. Her friends say she
told them Mahoney threatened
that ending the relationship could
cost her the job."
Accompanied by his wife Ter-
ry, Congressman Tim Mahoney
(FL-16) issued the following state-
ment Tuesday: "I would have
come forward earlier but making
sure my family is ok is far more
important than any political ca-
reer. I have not violated my oath
of office, nor have I violated any


laws, and I consider this to be a
private matter.
"I take full responsibility for
my actions and the pain I have
caused my wife Terry and my
daughter, Bailey. No marriage is
perfect, but our private life is our
private life, and I am sorry that
these allegations have caused
embarrassment and heartache.
"I have requested that the
House Ethics Committee inves-
tigate the false allegations that
have been repeated in the press.
I want to be clear that I have not
misused campaign funds and I'm
confident that when all the facts
come to light, I will be cleared of
any wrongdoing.
"I think the people of my Dis-
trict know that I am a fighter and
I am not going to allow this story
coming out 20 days before an
election to change my resolve to
serve the people of the 16thI Con-
gressional District. I have worked
hard and I am prepared to put
my faith in the people and ask for


their vote."
Mr. Mahoney, a Democrat, was
elected to Congress following the
scandal involving Republican
Congressman Mark Foley, whose
political career was destroyed in
2006 after teenage boys who had
served as Congressional Pages
claimed he made sexually-explicit
remarks to them online over in-
stant message. In the wake of the
scandal Mr. Foley resigned from
Congress and signed himself into
a rehabilitation clinic for alcohol-
ism.
The Florida Department of Law
Enforcement closed their investi-
gation on Sept. 19, citing insuffi-
cient evidence to pursue criminal
charges. However, Mr. Foley could
still face federal charges.
.Congressional District 16 in-
cludes parts of Charlotte, Glades,
Hendry, Highlands, Okeechobee,
St. Lucie, Martin and Palm Beach
Counties.


U.S. Sugar cane harvest under way


Clewiston, FL October 10,
2008 U.S. Sugar began its 2008-
09 sugarcane harvest early in the
morning' on October 3 and be-
gan processing the first railcars
of cane at the Clewiston Sugar
Factory at noon. The harvest was
delayed from its scheduled Oct.
1 start due to rain. The company
plans to harvest 170,396 acres,
yielding an estimated 6.3 million
tons of sugarcane and producing
13.8 million cwt. of raw sugar. The
Clewiston Refinery is projected to
produce 13.1 million cwt refined
sugar.
"Following an excellent repair
season at the raw sugar factory
and a successful start up at the
mill, we are looking forward to
getting this crop underway," said
Robert Coker, senior vice presi-
dent, public affairs.
Completing a record-breaking
year, the Clewiston Refinery is
400,000 cwt. ahead of its targeted
production for the year. With the
Clewiston Refinery operating at a
record-breaking pace, U.S. Sugar
imported additional raw sugar
from Mexico for the first time and
expanded its sugar sales. Since
May, more than 48,000 metric
- tons of Mexican "estandar" sugar
has been delivered to the refinery
and processed.


Submitted photo
U.S. Sugar began its sugarcane harvest recently, beginning
operations on the morning of Oct. 3.


"It is important to note that
this imported sugar has enabled
us to process and sell additional
sugar -- above and beyond the
sugar sold contractually for this
year," said Robert Coker.
Coker said that statements
made by competitors regarding
the imported sugar are incorrect.
The company had produced and
delivered all the sugar contracts


sold for 2007-08 season. Sugar
contracts are sold well in advance,
with nearly 90% of the sugar that
will be produced during the up-
coming season (starting in Octo-
ber) already sold.
The sugar refining and pack-
aging facility broke production
records at the end of August for
total refined production. (12.91
million cwt), packaged produc-


tion (4.65 million cwt), and liquid
sugar production (634,222 cwt).
Previous records: total refined
production (11.34 cwt, set in 05-
06), packaged production (4.13
million cwt., set in 03-04) and
liquid sugar production (514,341
cwt, set in 06-07).
Three years ago, the Refinery's
capacity was expanded to enable
the facility fo refine all of the com-
pany's raw sugar production.
Current capacity is 45,000 cwt. or
2250 tons per day. The expansion
along with the enhanced high
quality sugar produced by the
modernization and consolidation
of the Clewiston Mill and a stable
team of refinery employees are
credited with the record produc-
tion.
U.S. Sugar's state-of-the-art
sugar factory in Clewiston is the
result of a project, termed "Break-
through" for its dramatic consoli-
dation and transformation of the
Company's two older raw sugar
milling operations. The three-year
construction project incorporated
the best sugar technology from
.around the world.

Florida Bankers


meet with Governor



Crist


Representatives from Florida's
banking industry met with Gov.
Charlie Crist at the Governors
Mansion this morning to convey
important news: Florida's banks
are the safest place for citizens to
keep their money.
And, furthermore, banks are
ready to lend.
Especially in these turbulent
economic times, its important
to know that an FDIC insured
bank .is the best place to have
your money, said Alex Sanchez,
President and CEO of the Florida
Bankers Association (FBA). In
the 75 years since the FDIC was
established, not a dime-not even
a penny-of an insured deposit has
been lost.
Recent changes now allow for
customers to have $250,000 of
insurance, which can be crafted
to allow for even more coverage
depending upon the number and
structure of accounts.
One of the messages that the
FBA and bankers shared with the
Governor today is that Florida's
banks are strong, have money to
lend and are open for business.
We discussed the states eco-
nomic status and gave Gov. Crist
an update on the lending industry
in Florida, said Sanchez.
Recent headlines would lead
you to believe that money for
mortgages has dried up.
The truth is, banks have mon-
ey to lend homeowners for new
purchases and to refinance exist-
ing mortgages as well as money
to lend small businesses that need
access to capital.
Additionally, members of the
FBA wanted to reinforce mes-
sages that bankers want to keep
people in their homes and only
use foreclosure as a last resort.
Anyone behind in their pay-
ments of their mortgage should
contact his or her banker imme-
diately.
Bankers are working with their
customers and want to avoid
foreclosure if at all possible, said
Sanchez.
Call your lenders. They under-
stand when there are challenges
to overcome and will work with


you to find the best solutions.
The bankers who attended the
meeting and press conference
were:
Matt Brown Premier Bank;
Mike Fields Bank of America;
Mike Sims Farmers and Mer-
chants; Tom Pennekamp Sun-
Trust; Sammie Dixon Prime Me-
ridian; Bryan Robinson ProBank;
Dave Buckridge Ameris Bank;
Paul Sullivan BB&T; Scott Jen-
kins FBA; Anthony DiMarco -

Farm Bureau honors four state reps


The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration recognized Sens. Carey
Baker and Larcenia Bullard and
Reps. Mary Brandenburg and
Will Kendrick as Legislators of the
Year for 2008 for their leadership,
vision and support of Florida's
agriculture industry. The awards
were presented at the Federa-
tion's 2008 annual meeting Oct.
8-10, at the Peabody in Orlando.
"As the state's general agricul-
tural organization, we are pleased
to recognize these legislators for
their efforts to support the state's
second-largest industry," said Ben
Parks, Florida Farm Bureau's di-
rector of state legislative affairs.
Sen. Baker represents District
20, which includes Lake, Marion,


Seminole, Sumter, and Volusia
counties. He has a solid history
of working for agribusiness in the
legislature, according to Parks.
This year, Baker sponsored two
important' pieces of legislation
for the Farm Bureau: one deal-
ing with the transportation of
overwidth ag equipment, an-
other concerning surveyors who
damage private property. In ad-
dition to being a member of the
General Government Appropria-
tions Committee, where he was
considered a protector of.the ag
budget, Baker chaired the Trans-
portation Committee and served
on the Judiciary Committee and
others.
Sen. Bullard represents District


39, which includes Broward, Col-
lier, Hendry, Miami-Dade, Mon-
roe and Palm Beach counties.
Throughout her years in the leg-
islature, Larcenia has remained a
dedicated supporter of the agri-
cultural industry. She is complet-
ing her second term as Vice Chair
of the Senate Agricultural Com-
mittee. "Her door is always open
to Farm Bureau members and
staff, and she is always quick to
offer help on any of our issues,"
Parks said.
Rep. Brandenburg represents
House District 89 in Palm Beach
County, where she chairs the
county legislative delegation. With
a family history in dairy farming,
she is a friend of the agricultural


community. In the past two years,
her positions on the Environmen-
tal and Natural Resources Council
and the Policy and Budget Council
as well as the Conservation and
State Lands Committee have giv-
en her excellent platforms for her
no-nonsense approach to govern-
ment, Parks said. She has risen in
the Democratic Party ranks in the
House and has been named their
point person for agricultural and
natural resources issues for the
coming term.
Rep. Kendrick represents
House District 10, which stretches
across ten North Florida counties.
He was named as vice chair of the
House Agriculture Committee his
freshman term in office.


"From his early days he
showed himself to be a great
friend and a strong supporter of
our industry," Parks said, "as well
as an outspoken guardian for his
rural constituency."
In his last two years, Kendrick
served as Chair of the Committee
on Conservation and State Lands
and as a member of the Envi-
ronment and Natural Resources
Council and Policy and Budget
Council.
Over the years, Kendrick has
worked with .Farm Bureau on
numerous issues. He has.proven
to be a leader and a fighter. He
consistently stands his ground
on issues affecting any aspect of
agriculture, from property rights


to the budget and all points in be-
tween. He is well known for his
passion for protecting rural com-
munities.
The Florida Farm Bureau Fed-
eration is the state's largest gener-
al-interest agricultural association
with about 140,000 member-fam-
ilies statewide. Headquartered in
Gainesville, the Federation is an
independent, nonprofit agricul-
tural organization. More infor-
mation about is available on the
organization's Web site, http://

INI Florida Are you a con-
servation minded landowner in
need of advice or financial in-
centives for your farm or ranch?
A comprehensive conservation
plan may be just what you need.
A conservation plan is a writ-
ten record of your management
decisions and the conservation
practices and systems that you
plan to use and maintain on your
farm. Carrying out your plan will
achieve the goals of protecting the
environment on and off your-farm
or ranch as well as meeting your
individual management objec-
tives. Having a conservation plan
may also help qualify you for vari-
ous USDA conservation programs
that can help you implement your
plan.
Conservation applications
for the Environmental Quality
Incentives Program (EQIP) and
the Wildlife Habitat Incentives
Program (WHIP) are currently
being accepted for funding con-
sideration in fiscal year 2009 at
U.S. Department of Agriculture
Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) offices through-
out Florida. Though an applica-
tion deadline for 2009 funding
has not yet been set, interested


landowners are encouraged to
contact a local NRCS office for in-
formation on conservation plan-
ning and submitting a completed
application.
"We are awaiting the final pro-
gram rules of the new 2008 Farm
Bill, which will determine the pro-
gram policies and eligibility crite-
ria," said NRCS State Conserva-
tionist Carlos Suarez. "However,
we are continuing'to accept appli-
cations now so that we can write
our conservation plans in a timely
manner. We want to be well posi-
tioned to provide contracts to our
producers when the policies are
finalized."
EQIP is a voluntary program
that provides financial and tech-
nical assistance to farmers and
ranchers who face threats to soil,
water, air, and related natural re-
sources on their land. Through
EQIP, the NRCS provides financial
incentives to producers to pro-
mote agricultural production and
environmental quality as compat-
ible goals, optimize environmen-
tal benefits, and help farmers
and ranchers meet Federal, State,
Tribal, and local environmental
regulations.
The 2008 Farm Bill autho-


rizes increased payments for so-
cially disadvantaged farmers and
ranchers in addition to beginning
and limited resource producers.
Priority may be given to water
conservation applications that
will reduce water use or where
the producer agrees not to use
any associated water savings to
bring new land under irrigation
production.
WHIP is a voluntary program
for private landowners to develop
and improve high quality habitat
that supports wildlife populations
of National, State, Tribal, and lo-
cal significance. Land eligible for
WHIP includes private agricultur-
al land, non-industrial private for-
est land, and Tribal land. Through
WHIP, the USDA's NRCS provides
technical and financial assistance.
WHIP agreements generally last
from 5 to 10 years.
Whether you want or need
financial incentives, now is the
time to contact your local district
conservationist to request con-
servation planning assistance.. .to
plan for your future.

The truth about America's banks


By Tabitha Trent, Branch
Manager
Riverside National Bank,
Okeechobee
Abraham Lincoln, one of
America's greatest "crisis manag-
ers," was a firm believer in Ameri-
cans' ability to handle a crisis.
"If given the truth, they can be
depended upon to meet any na-
tional crisis," he said. "The great
point is to bring them the real
facts."
Though the intense change
that America's economy and fi-
nancial system is undergoing
now is not nearly as profound
as the crisis Lincoln confronted
in his day, Lincoln's observation
remains fundamentally true to-
day. In that spirit, I would like to


offer you facts about the state of
our nation's banking system that
I hope you will find both informa-
tive and reassuring.
Fact. The vast majority of Amer-
ica's banks are highly capitalized.
What does that mean? It means
the industry has a cushion of
about $1.3 trillion that stands as a
backstop against possible losses,
making the possibility of anyone's
bank being taken over by the Fed-
eral Deposit Insurance Corpora-
tion (FDIC) remote. And if it did,
happen, you would continue to
have uninterrupted access to your
FDIC insured deposits..
Fact. Deposits in commer-
cial banks and thrift institutions
are insured by the FDIC, and no
one has ever lost a penny of in-
sured deposits. Even better, the


agency has temporarily raised its
coverage amount from $100,000
to $250,000 per depositor per in-,
sured institution through Dec. 31,
2009.
Fact. Banks pay premiums to
provide FDIC insurance for their
customers. The fund that guaran-
tees bank customers' deposits is
completely, 100-percent funded
by banks not by the govern-
ment, not by taxpayers.
Fact. Most of the turmoil in-
volves large institutions (Fannie
Mae, Freddie Mac, Lehman Broth-
ers, AIG) that are not banks. And
while Washington Mutual, which
was recently closed and then.
acquired by JP Morgan Chase,
was a bank, the transaction was
a seamless one that protected all
deposits even amounts above


the limit.
American commercial banks
are among the most highly regu-
lated in the world. The current cri-
sis should force needed reforms
on the less regulated mortgage
brokers and Wall Street.
Remember, no FDIC-insured
depositor has ever lost a penny.
Lincoln was only one of many
presidents who witnessed Ameri-
cans' resiliency. In crises, Ameri-
cans pull together. We've been
through tough times before and
we'll get through this.

Reassurances, in context!


"I can do all things
through Him that
strengthens me"

By The Reverend
Samuel S. Thomas, Ph.
D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There are times a word of
comfort or reassurance can make
a real difference in somebody's
life.
I've tried to do that over the
years and hope that what I share
will be of help to someone facing
a tragedy or difficult situation.
Many Biblical passages come
to mind: we all have our favor-
ites.
As I was reading this past
week, one of them was in the text
from Saint Paul's Epistle to the
Philippians; "I can do all things
through Him that strengthens me
(4:13)."
That is really a comforting
thought. Sometimes, though, we
must sound like Job's friends
when trying to be of help.
Job was hurting, everything
went wrong that could go wrong
and his friends really offer little
help.
Platitudes do not help.
Telling Job that he must be
doing something wrong or other-
wise bad things wouldn't happen
doesn't help. Coming with com-
ments that show his friends don't
really understand his pain doesn't


help.
That's the challenge: to really
do some good in a bad moment.
As I got back to the verse that
is often quoted to be of help, I
found it preceded by a "secret."-
The passage comes at the end
of Paul's recap of his experiences
and what he has learned.
It does not come in isolation
but after talking about our part is
making God's promise our own.
Paul is in prison as he writes
it(ch.1, v. 14). It certainly is not a
time for him to be celebrating!
What, then, can be encourag-
ing him to say "I can do all things
through Him that strengthens
me"?
The answer comes by putting
to use what is around him and the
gifts he has on hand from God.
The admonition is that we "do
not worry about anything (easy
to say how can we replace wor-
ries?) "but with prayer and sup-
plication, with thanksgiving let
your requests be known to God
(v. 6)."
Well, even if things are really
bad, they can be offered up to
God and at least we can ask for
His help.
We pray neither to a "celes-
tial magician" nor someone who
is there to do all of our bidding;
there are things we're supposed
to do in this life even at difficult
times.
Paul continues by telling us to
"hang on to the good things and
"keep doing the things you have


learned and received..." and there
will be your strength.
Paul, in the midst of his own
suffering and difficulty, was grate-
ful for the concerns expressed by
others about his well-being.
He is not feeling sorry for him-
self; "not that I am referring to be-
ing in need, for I have learned to
be content with whatever I have
(v.11)."
He reminds his readers that "I
know what it is to have little and I
know what it is to have plenty.
In any and all circumstances,
I have learned the secret of being
well-fed and going hungry; of hav-
ing plenty and being in need."
Then Paul concludes with
that verse that is so often quoted
"I can do all things through Him
that strengthens me."
It is up to us to call upon God
when we're hurting but not to ex-
,pect that we have nothing to do
afterward.
We are to fall back on the val-
ues and things we've learned;
putting them to work and learn-
ing how to draw upon our own
inner resources too.
Paul, when talking about
knowing good times and bad;
being well-fed and being hungry,
then talks his 'secret.'
The secret he reveals is that we
have resources within and need
to 'get busy;" forgetting self-pity
and make the best of even a bad
time.
Putting life in' order with the
resources at hand and being


grateful for the support we have,
making the best of it even when
things do not go well ... that is the
mind set, the faith that carries us
through.
Paul summarized it all by put-
ting it in the context of "I can
do all things through Him that
strengthens me."
God will be there to strengthen
us and build on the roots that are
within us.
The idea of "strengthening"
suggests that there is already
something inside of us, and with-
in our capabilities now that will
be strengthened (not created or
added.)
What we have on hand, what
we've learned, real values that are
there already, get busy, do our part
and God will surely do His part.
Then the words can really be
of comfort and things will get
accomplished even at bad mo-
ments.

Confessions of a food addict


The long, hard steps
toward recovery
begin one at a time

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Hi, my name is John and I'm a
recovering food alcoholic.
I enjoy food.
Good times call for celebration
bring on the good stuff!
Bad times call for comfort I
love comfort food.
And what's a good gathering
without some munchies making
it better?
I found I Was eating when I
was happy, eating when I was sad,
eating when I was bored, when I
was active, when I was stressed,
and even when I wasn't really
aware I was packing it away.
.Some have a hard time under-
standing how a person can down
a half gallon of ice cream without
realizing the amount that was
consumed.
I don't.
Some don't understand late
night or closet munching.
I do. I've been there.
Some people can eat anything
and not gain weight.
I can't.
S I have always half-seriously
joked that I could gain three
pounds just by smelling some-
thing.
Behind the laughter of the jok-
ing there are tears.
Last year, God got in my face
and I lost 132 pounds. To accom-
plish it, I had to change my life-
style.
The only surgery I had for
my weight loss was the removal
of bad habits and the grafting of
new ones.
Now comes confession time.
Over these last months, some
of the bad habits (and pounds)
started creeping back.
My new and healthier lifestyle
was eroding away. A little treat
here, a little there nothing bad
in itself, but the accumulation
started taking its toll.
To quote the Apostle Paul,
"What I want to do I do not do,
but what I hate to do I do."
Little bit by little bit, pound by
pound nothing noticeable at first

- but then the clothes weren't as
loose as they once were the belt
had to be let out another notch or
two.
I woke up one morning and
realized my ship had changed
course form the direction of my
heart.
I realized I needed once more
to shift my compass to get back on
track, and that constant vigilance
is needed to stay on course.
I have come to realize that
nothing tastes as good as being
healthy and whole feels.
It dawned on me that this was
very similar to sin in mr life.
.. My old damaging ll'esr. les can,
erode iy desired lilf-glving li 'ay
of life. Not that these lifestyles
were necessarily bad in them-
selves, but they were not good for
me.
For my better health, change
had to happen. There will be
times when I slip and stumble,
but I need to keep the bigger
picture in sight, and get back on
course.
The hardest part always seems
to be getting started.
Staying with it and not getting
discouraged is also difficult.
Let,me share with you some
steps that I have found helpful
for beginning and for staying on
course, not just in weight issues,
but in any issues which might
weigh us down.
First, I had to own I had a
.problem and commit to doing
something about it.


Second, I made a, searching
and brutally candid inventory of
my lifestyle (and eating habits)
and came to an honest account-
ing of what I wanted and needed
to change.
Third, I turned to God and
friends for help. I made a decision
to turn my will, my life, and EV-
ERY aspect of it over to the care
of God.
I admitted to God, to myself,
and others about my desires to
change, and humbly asked for
support.
I followed up with prayer and
commitments each morning and
"sought continued help through-
out the day. .
Change doesn't always occur
quickly. It takes time for a large
ship to turn around.
But even the longest journey
begins with a single step. I found
that once started, blessings began
flowing which encouraged me to:
keep going.
The same can happen for you.
No matter how far up or down
the scale we have gone, we can
know a new freedom and a new
happiness.
We can come to know the
peace that passes understanding.
Our whole attitudes and outlooks
upon life will change as we be-
come more whole and healthy,
and we realize even more that
we have a God who will do for us
and in us what we could not do
for ourselves.

I have spent over 38 years in Florida Law Enforcement and have known
Ronnie Lee for most of that time. I have served at levels in law enforcement
from State Troope, Criminal Investigator, Narcotics Investigator Chief of Police

the law enforcement skills Ronnie Lee possesses. Hendry County is indeed
fortunate to have a professional with his credentials as your Sheriff.

October 9th, 2008


Dear Mr. Whidden,

In March of 2005, as a courtesy to you I wrote a letter for you that was to
be used by you in applying for a Law Enforcement Officer. It has come to
my attention that you are using such a letter as a part of your political adver-
tisements strongly to inferring Hendry County voters that I am "support-
ing", "endorsing", or "recommending" you for Sheriff of Hendry County.
The use of such a letter without my written consent, constitutes a violation
of Florida's election laws, specifically Section 106.143 (3), Florida Statutes.
I have previously advised you\to discontinue the use of this letter.

Such a letter, published in such a manner as it infers that I am supporting
you for office, commits fraud upon the voters of Hendry County since I have
previously advised you that I feel that you are not qualified to be Sheriff of
Hendry County. After leaving your employment with the Sheriff's Office, I
learned that you had filed a false employment application with the Sheriff's
Office as you failed to reveal on your application that you received some 10
traffic citations and that two traffic bench warrants for your arrest and one
civil court contempt order had been entered against you according to the
official records of Collier County and your City of Clewiston employment
application.

I have also learned through a memorandum contained in your file at the City
of Clewiston that you were removed from the DEA Task Force for being inef-
fective and failing to produce cases. This memorandum to you was written
by the Clewiston, Florida Chief of Police.

I demand that you remove my letter from any and all political advertisement
used by you in your campaign.
