Coalition benefits community


Tobacco, harmful
substances and
prevention

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES/HENDRY -- The
Glades Coalition luncheon was
held at the public library in
Moore Haven on Oct. 28. The
coalition is designed to bring to-
gether health departments, agen-
cies, organizations and individu-
als who work for the same goals


so they can join resources.
Recently, it has come to the
attention of state officials that
tobacco use among adults, and
some adolescents, is prevalent
in Glades County. Members
from local government, school
district, sheriff's office, health
department, neighboring coun-
ties and Riverside Glades Medi-
cal Center met and listened to a
presentation. A team of Moore
Haven High School students, in
cooperation with the health de-
partment's Angelica Pena, gave
an eye-opening demonstration


of the tobacco smoke damage
done to a pig's lungs; and then
they gave some statistics to think
about.
It costs about $152,000 for
some rounds of chemotherapy,
and the cost of a lifetime of to-
bacco use could equal the price
of a modest house. The students
also had examples of some of
the 4,000 ingredients in tobacco
such as rat poison, moth balls
and drain cleaner.
Kara Anderson and Patricia
Annsworth, MHHS students,
mentioned that there are a lot


of reasons to be drug free. Ac-
cording to officials, not that
many students use tobacco. It is
a small minority that do. How-
ever, 88 people a day in Florida
die from tobacco use, and it may
be tempting for a student to try
it if they think that everyone else
is doing it. Many times tobacco
addiction begins at a young age.
A student wants to fit in and be
accepted by peers, just like many
adolescents. Kara Anderson had
a good example of an excuse
should a student be encouraged
to use tobacco or other harmful


substance.
"My mother would kill me,"
said Miss Anderson as her ex-
cuse.
Pat Dobbins, health depart-
ment, mentioned that the pig
lungs look remarkably like hu-
man lungs, especially if one has
seen human lungs in an autopsy.
Both students put on gloves and
withdrew the healthy pig lungs
which were a pliant pink. It was
attached to a pump simulating
the breathing reflex. The mo-

Plants bring




joy to club


Club welcomes
Rainbow Gardens
shop owner

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- The
Glades County Garden Club
held its first meeting of the new
fall season with guest speaker,
Cindy Woodward Davidson.
She owns the Rainbow Gar-
dens florist shop in Moore
Haven located behind Burger
King. She not only sells flow-
ers and arrangements, but also
candles and other gifts.
Ms. Davidson has been in
business as a florist for 25 years
and she displayed her expertise
in a demonstration for the club.
She had rescued a pumpkin
from last month's harvest and
used it as the foundation for
a fall or Thanksgiving center-
piece. This large pumpkin was
an armful, and she managed to
adorn it fully with sunflowers,
carnations, leatherleaf fern, hy-
pericum, rice flowers, yarrow,
cattails, birch branches and
golden rod. It turned out big
and gorgeous.
"I can make that quicker
than I can make a tiny arrange-
ment," she said.
The florist shop owner gave
away one secret of rescuing
cut carnations that have sev-
eral short stems growing out
of a tall main stem. Sometimes
these short stemmed flowers
on top are just way too short for
a flower arrangement. Ms. Da-
vidson brought out a carnation
with that problem. She snipped
off the short stems at the base,
then cut off the top of the re-
maining large stem. After the
large one was cut, she showed


that it was hollow in the center
like a straw. That made a per-
fect holder for the shorter car-
nation, and still allowed it to sy-
phon moisture from the water
in the container.
Cindy Woodward Davidson
gave a little advice to customers
who pick up flowers and trans-
port them, or try to keep them
fresh at home. First of all, do
not put fresh flowers and plants
in the car's back seat with the
windows rolled down. When
the driver takes off it gives them
a blast of hot air or chilling air.
The wind whips the delicate
flowers or leaves and can dis-
lodge arrangements. So, gently
chauffeur the flowers home.
Also, do not put flowers in
the freezer. That is a big mis-
take. It is recommended that
some flowers can be preserved
for a while in the refrigerator
compartment, but don't freeze
them.
Ms. Davidson mentioned
that she is happy to help any-
one make arrangements and
choose flowers. She also wants
residents to know that flower
or plant arrangements similar
to hers will cost more in larger
cities like Fort Myers.
Later, Richard Thatcher,
club president, opened the first
meeting and welcomed return-
ing residents. Judge Kirby Sulli-
van lead a prayer, then the club
members planned upcoming
events. They will participate
December 11 at Christmas on
the Caloosahatchee, which is
a local community festival in
the historic section of Moore
Haven. Flowers and plants will
also be donated in December
for the open house to celebrate
the restoration of the Pieter

MOORE HAVEN -- A traf-
fic accident involving a tractor
pulling a trailer, and a pickup
truck occurred Nov. 4 about
9:30 a.m. on U.S. 27, south of
Moore Haven.
According to a report from
Florida Highway Patrol, the
driver of the pickup truck, An-
gel Martinez of Clewiston, was
in the right northbound lane
behind a trailer being towed by
a tractor. The speed of the trac-
tor was estimated at 20 m.p.h.,
while the speed of the pickup


truck was estimated at 70
m.p.h. Mr. Martinez failed to de-
celerate, and struck the rear of
the trailer. The collision caused
the trailer to disengage from
the tractor driven by Harry Wall
of LaBelle.
The impact caused Mr. Wall
to temporarily lose control of
the tractor, but he was able to
bring it to a controlled stop on
to the northbound shoulder.
Mr. Wall was wearing his seat
belt.
The disengaged trailer and
Mr. Martinez's pickup truck
came to a stop in the right
northbound lane. Angel Mar-


tinez was injured and Glades
County EMS gave assistance.
He was transported to Lee Me-
morial Hospital by Medstar he-
licopter.
According to Trooper T.J.
Parks' report, the driver of the
pickup truck contributed to the
cause of the accident because
he failed to drive in a careful
and prudent manner. Mr. Marti-
nez's seat belt was not in use.

Traffic team focused on


teen programs


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- The
community traffic safety team
met Nov. 6 to find ways to make
Glades County a safer place for
motorists.
Deputy Donald Watts, GCSO
school resource officer, reports
that road patrol issued 197 cita-
tions in the county with 12 of
them related to seat belts. He
informed the team that he plans
to combine school programs
about tobacco, drug, and alco-


hol awareness. The resource
officer further explained that
he may organize a teen com-
mittee to help with programs.
He mentioned that there is a lo-
cal person who may be able to
become a guest speaker about
DUI manslaughter.
Debra Stallings, FDOT, is
aware of the road department's
concern for making C.R. 74 a
safer route to Charlotte County.
She explained that it is current-
ly under field review, and FDOT
will seek to correct safety prob-


lems. The road department is
concerned about striping, and
FDOT is looking into audible
road markings.
Ms. Stallings reminded the
team that the state is working
on a program to encourage
drivers to refrain from using cell
phones while operating a vehi-
cle. A program that can be in-
troduced is called "Ghost Out"
which targets teens that drink
alcohol while driving, and local

Tigers Whip Scots; Win Title


By Jeff Barwick
Clewiston's journey to Boca
Raton St. Andrews on Friday night
proved to be very rewarding as
the Tigers captured their fourth
consecutive 2A District 6 title.
Three rushing scores by senior
tailback Darris Hughes powered
the offense while the defense
kept the Scots well in check.
The victory improved the
Clewiston record to 7-2 overall
and 4-0 in the district.
In fact, the Tigers have never
lost a district game since joining
the district four years ago.
Clewiston won the opening
toss but deferred until the second
half.
The defense held the Scots
three and out. From their 45, the
Tigers used 8 plays with Hughes
getting the final 4 yards.
Key plays on the drive were
throws from quarterback Isandro
Marquez of 22 and 12 yards caught
by tight end Julio Ramos.
The Tigers roared back in the
second period, scoring on a 25-
yard jaunt by Hughes. Hughes set
up the score with an 18-yard re-
turn of a short St. Andrews punt.


the extra point and was perfect
on the night on his 3 attempts.
Clewiston took the second half
kickoff and Hughes returned the
ball 18 yards to the Tiger 39.
Hughes then ran for 14 fol-
lowed by an 18 yard smash by
fullback Leonard Newton.
From their, Hughes burst up
the middle and raced untouched
for the 29 yard touchdown.
St. Andrews lone score came
early in the final quarter on a 12
yard run by tailback Ben Dexter.
The score was a gift as a result of
a blocked Tiger punt, the second
of the game.
While the Tigers won, the vic-
tory was not impressive as the
Scot's defensive front appeared to
be all the Tiger offensive line could
handle for most of the game.
From a rushing perspective, 16
of 31 Tiger rushes were held to 3
yards or less. Marquez' passing
was sharp except for 2 intercep-
tions.
Defensively, the Tigers seemed
more their normal self as they
held the Scots to 116 yards rush-
ing on 31 tries and only 55 yards
passing.

the game was decided.
Linebacker Joey Cordova
turned in his best performance of
the year with 10 tackles, an assist,
and 1.5 rushing sacks for a total of
5 yards lost.
Linebacker Dillon Irey also was
active with 7 tackles and an assist.
Linebacker Leonard Newton re-
covered a fumble and defensive
back Damion Smith picked off a
pass.
Tailback Darris Hughes
eclipsed the single season rush-
ing record for the Tigers on his
first carry of the game.
The record was 1,527 yards set
in 1990 by fabled Tiger tailback
Thomas Washington.
Hughes now stands at 1,649
yards rushing with one game re-
maining to add to the total.
The Tigers close out their
regular season this week hosting
Okeechobee.
The Brahmans have also se-
cured a playoff berth and feature
the hard running of Lonnie Pryor,
one of the best backs in the state.
Pryor rolled past the 2,000-yard
mark rushing in last week's vic-
tory over Jensen Beach.


The Tigers will open their play-
off activity on November 21 when
they host the Mulberry Panthers,
runner-ups in 2A District 5.
The Panthers are 6-4 entering

in district play.

Area boxers chosen Top PAL Team in Florida


On November 7, 2008 we
brought 12 Belle Glade and Paho-
kee PAL boxers to Fort Myers to
compete against other PALs for
the Florida PAL Championship
title.
The kids boxed on Nov. 8 and
Nov. 9. Our youth boxers won five
championship title belts.
In addition, we were chosen as
the top team in the State of Flor-
ida out of every other PAL team,
winning a 4 foot trophy from the
Florida PAL.
This was an outstanding op-
portunity that PBSO Community
Services gave to the glades kids
between the ages of 11 to 17.
Many of the glades kids never
had the gift of staying away from
home and staying in a Holiday
Inn before the tournament.
We are keeping our kids off
the streets.
They are away from gangs,
drugs, alcoholic beverages, and
tobacco.
The school watch program
has begun in Pahokee.

Raiders clinch district, win over Suncoast


Pahokee defeats Vero
Beach, Glades Day
beats Moore Haven

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE In Glades Cen-
tral's 44-0 thumping of Suncoast,
a few things were proven at the
conclusion of the Muck Bowl
tune-up.
The Raiders most likely will be
thoroughly dominant at a home-
coming game, which was re-
scheduled from Oct. 3 to Nov. 7.
Also, Glades Central can easily
win contests on the run, through
the air and on defense.
Simply put, this year's assem-
bly of Raiders is proving that an
opponent must play at least a
near-perfect game to even have a
chance of pulling a victory.
It's akin to, say, an opponent
picking its poison, especially in
District 15-3A play, which the
Raiders won with a 4-0 record
this season.
The consensus No. 1 team
in Class 3A, according to the lat-
est Associated Press High School
Football poll, mostly used its run-
ning game to overpower them in
the blowout win.
The running back duo of senior
Antonio McCloude (eight carries,
69 yards, 2 rush TDs) and junior
Antwon Chisolm (four carries, 18
yards, 2 total TDs) was just too
much for Suncoast to handle.
McCloude broke a scoreless tie
in the first quarter with a 5-yard
touchdown run, the first of three
touchdown drives in the second
quarter.
Chisolm followed with a 8-yard
rushing score of his own later in
the quarter.
Senior tight end/wide receiver
James West (three receptions, 36
yards) hauled in a 12-yard touch-
down catch in the second quar-
ter from junior quarterback L.J.
Thomas (11-for-15 passing, 173
yards, 1 TD).
Glades Central went into half-
time with a 22-0 lead after senior
Andre Edwards caught a 2-point
conversion from Thomas, cour-
tesy of Chisolm's rushing score.
If Suncoast (4-6) thought they
were going to score at any point,
Glades Central gave them that
answer in emphatic fashion as
the Raiders gave up only 65 total
yards in the game.
The exclamation point came
in the second half when senior
defensive back D'Anthony Ja-
boam, a Royal Palm Beach trans-
fer, caught an interception at the
Suncoast 19 yard line for a score.
Chisolm, who recorded 110 all-
purpose yards in the game, broke


loose for a 60-yard punt return for
touchdown in the second half.
The Raiders (9-0; Beef 0' Bra-
dy's No. 3 team in the state's all-
classification poll) are now look-
ing forward to the annual Muck
Bowl against the Pahokee Blue
Devils.
Glades Central is hoping to
avenge a 34-24 home loss in last
year Muck Bowl, where this year's
backup senior quarterback, Ken-
tavious McCoy, was named the
Muck Bowl MVP.
If the Raiders win the Muck
Bowl, it would be their first since
2004.
Not only that, Glades Central
may make its first appearance in
USA Today's Super 25 national
high school poll next week, con-
tingent on the outcome of their
final regular season game.
The Raiders haven't been na-
tionally ranked since 2006, when
they were the No. 5 team in the
country before losing an early
season game to Byrnes (S.C.)


Pahokee 28, Vero
Beach 10
The Blue Devils (8-1; Beef 0'
Brady's No. 4 team in the state's
all-classification poll) won their
Nov. 6 road game on the strength
of its running game, led by senior
Vincent Smith.
The Michigan commit rushed
for 211 yards and three touch-
downs in Pahokee's Muck Bowl
tune-up game against the Indi-
ans.
University of Florida commit
and senior Nu'Keese Richardson,
the only Muck-area player to ap-
pear on ESPN's latest ESPN150
high school recruiting list, threw
a 5-yard touchdown pass to fel-
low senior Dexter Holmes to
complete Pahokee's scoring in
the game.
However, Vero Beach did a
fairly decent job of neutralizing
Richardson, who was held to
6-for-15 passing with 58 yards,
one touchdown and one inter-
ception.
In all fairness, Richardson
played quarterback for the first
time since Pahokee faced Byrnes
(S.C.) on the road in an 38-12
heartbreaking loss.
In the three games before Vero
Beach all blowout wins Rich-
ardson lined up at receiver, his
natural position.
It was an effort to showcase
sophomore quarterback Em-
manuel Perez, who made a brief
appearance in the Muck Bowl
tune-up, though he didn't attempt
a pass.
On the defensive front, the


Blue Devils, anchored by outside
linebacker Brandin Hawthorne
and defensive back Jarvis Byrd,
limited Vero Beach (7-2) to 164
total yards.
Tailor-made to stop the run,
Pahokee registered four sacks,
while allowing just 88 rushing
yards to the highly regarded team,
who is in Class 6A.
That being said, for the second
consecutive season, Pahokee (8-1;
3-0 in District 7-2B play) compiled
a clean sweep in two districts.
Those two districts were Class
6A-District 7 (Vero Beach, Palm
Beach Lakes, Palm Beach Gar-
dens and Jupiter) and their own
(Melbourne Central Catholic,
John Carroll and District 7-2B
runner-up King's Academy).
Next up for Pahokee is the an-
nual Muck Bowl against Glades
Central, which is their final regu-
lar season game.
The top-ranked team in Class
2B, according to the AP's latest
high school poll, are aiming for
their third consecutive Muck Bowl
win against their archrival.
Last season, Smith scored the
game-winning score in what will
forever be remembered as a clas-
sic showdown.
Winning the Muck Bowl would
be huge for this team, as the Blue
Devils have had to play on since
losing Norman Griffith to a trag-
edy a few games back.
Add to the fact that this year's
game is played at Lair Field, a vic-
tory here would probably be their
biggest win since, well, last year's
Muck Bowl win.
The Muck Bowl will take place
on Saturday, Nov. 15 at 1 p.m.
It's advised that fans of both
team come out to Lair Field at
least two hours before the kickoff
time as it's expected to be fully
packed before the game begins.


Glades Day 53, Moore
Haven 12
Both the Gators and the Ter-
riers entered this meaningless
district battle with identical 4-4
records.
But in the end, all the game
showed was why Glades Day is
the dominant force in District
6-1A play, which it has won every
year since 2004.
Kelvin Taylor the son of Jack-
sonville Jaguars running back and
Glades Central alum Fred Taylor -
led Glades Day with 125 rushing
yards and three touchdowns on
only nine carries.
Amazingly, in nine regular sea-
son games, the eighth-grader has
rushed for at least 100 yards in
all but one game, a 65-yard effort


against King's Academy in Glades
Day's 41-7 road loss on Oct. 31.
Taylor scored twice in the first
quarter against Moore Haven's
young defense, which gave up
269 total rushing yards in the
game.
Deandre Jackson, who regis-
tered 133 all-purpose yards (64
rushing on four carries, 69 pass-
ing on three receptions, two to-
tal TDs), also scored in the first
quarter, a 30-yard rushing touch-
down.
Those scores put Glades Day
up 21-6 to end the first quarter.
By the end of the first half, the
Gators put the game out of reach
for the Terriers to even think about
mounting a comeback.
Though Terriers junior run-
ning back Fred Hall (22 carries,
93 yards) scored a touchdown
in the second quarter, the Gators
were in attack mode, highlighted
by Taylor's third touchdown, a
40-yard run.
Jackson, who is a Suncoast
transfer, rushed for his second
touchdown of the game in the
second quarter, an 11-yard effort.
At halftime, Glades Day was
up by a score of 40-12.
The game was further put out
of reach in the second half, high-
lighted by Jarrett Swaby's 50-yard
punt return for a touchdown.
The University of Central Flor-
ida commit scored two touch-
downs in this contest, including a
14-yard strike from Bo Schlecter.
Schlecter, who is known as an
accurate quarterback, was 7-for-8
passing with 125 yards and no in-
terceptions.
On the Moore Haven side,
Dalton Britt was 8-for-25 passing
with a touchdown and an inter-
ception.
What hurt Moore Haven in
this contest was that they weren't
effective enough in its running
game, which has proven to be
its strongest suit throughout the
season.
Interestingly, though, the Terri-
ers displayed a balanced offense
on their 52 called plays, with 27
for rushing and 25 for passing.
In most games, gaining 12 first
downs would be enough to mus-
ter a win. But it didn't work out,
as the Terriers defense allowed 20
first downs to the Gators.
Glades Day's defense showed
noticeable improvement in this
game, as it allowed just over 200
total yards, including 102 rush-
ing.
The Gators defensive backs,
anchored by Swaby, Jackson,
Davonte Allen and Joshua Thorn-
ton, neutralized the Terriers pass-
ing game effectively.
Glades Day's defenders did
a great job of limiting the effec-


Stressing benefits of poison prevention


Floridians risk unexpected en-
counters with toxins on a daily ba-
sis through food poisoning, snake
bites, encounters with marine
life, insect bites, lead poisoning,
carbon monoxide, drug/chemical
abuse, pesticides or ingestion of
poisonous plants.
To save lives and provide a
resource for area residents, The
Florida Poison Information Cen-
ter Tampa, servicing 16 coun-
ties in west and central Florida,
is unveiling a new public service
campaign to increase awareness
of it's free, nationwide poison
emergency hotline 1-800-222-
1222 which is staffed with skilled
healthcare professionals 365 days
a year, 24 hours a day.
Using the direct message,
"When the problem is poison,
the answer is poison control,"


the campaign calls for all Florida
residents to use the hotline when
faced with poison-related emer-
gencies, including accidental
poisoning of pets. Consumers are
urged to call the hotline to receive
complimentary magnets and
stickers so they can display the
hotline number in a prominent
location before they have a actual
emergency.
"The poison information
hotline is staffed around the clock
with experts that can answer any
question, no matter how big or
small," said Dr. Cynthia Lewis-
Younger, medical director Florida
Poison Information Center Tam-
pa.
"We're hoping to bring aware-
ness about the poison control
hotline to help Florida residents
know how to avoid poison dan-


gers, call in the even of suspected
poisoning, get immediate help in
emergency situations and prevent
unnecessary hospital visits."
Created by an act of the Florida
Legislature in 1989 in response to
an overwhelming need for emer-
gency poison information in the
state, the Florida Poison Informa-
tion Center Tampa is part of the
Poison Information Center Net-
work. Currently, the FPIC/Tampa
receives approximately 160-200
calls each day from Floridians.
"Since we have a nationwide
hotline, Floridians can even use
this resource while on vacation.
We're here to help all Florida resi-
dents at all times," said Dr. Lewis-
Younger.
"We hope to save lives and
to become a household name
and reference for consumers. We


want people to know how to find
us when they don't need us so
they'll be prepared for any poten-
tial scenario."
All poison specialists at the
Tampa center are registered nurs-
es with emergency medicine or
critical care experience.
In addition, board-certified
toxicologists are available 24
hours per day for consultation.
The center also conducts a full
spectrum of poison prevention
education programs for the gen-
eral public and healthcare profes-
sionals.
Florida residents may call the
hotline at 1-800-222-1222 to re-
quest magnets or stickers or for
other free information on poison-
related dangers.


tiveness of Moore Haven senior
receiver Xavier Fagan, who came
into the games as the state's top
receiver, according to MaxPreps
Florida.
Fagan (three receptions, 51
yards) led Moore Haven's receiv-
ing corps in this game, highlight-
ed by an 11-yard score from Britt
in the first half.

Final regular
season games
The final regular season game
for Glades Day (5-4; 3-0 in Dis-
trict 6-1A play) will likely be their
toughest one of the season, as
they host Jupiter Christian tomor-
row night.
In what will be a litmus test for
the Gators throughout the Class
1A playoffs, which begins next
week, to win this game, they ab-
solutely must neutralize the War-
riors running game.
Jupiter Christian, the state's
consensus top-ranked Class 1B
team, according to the AP's lat-
est high school poll, is led by
the power running game of Will
Powers, who Glades Day cannot
afford to let loose.

100 yards against the Gators to-
morrow night, it may very well be
a long night for Glades Day and
a likely victory for the defending
Class 1B state champions.
For the Moore Haven (4-5; 0-3
in District 6-1A play), it would be
highly disappointing if they finish
their season with a loss to Central
Florida Christian in Orlando.
After a promising start in which
the Terriers were 4-0 and consid-
ered by the AP as one of the top
10 teams in Class 1A, they have
suffered through a five-game los-
ing streak.
It was very probable for Moore
Haven to at least finish as the Dis-
trict 6-1A runner-up, but losses
to St. John Neumann and Evan-
gelical Christian eliminated them
from playoff contention for the
fifth straight season.
Jason Bond, Moore Haven's
second-season coach, led the Ter-
riers to a 4-6 record last season.
Here's hoping that Moore Ha-
ven's three-hour bus ride from
Orlando tomorrow night will be
joyous with the possibility of fin-
ishing the season with a 5-5 re-
cord.

Inside the Dark Side: Dr. DeNoble speaks


In 1994 Dr. Victor DeNoble, af-
ter a congressional release from a
confidentially agreement with the
tobacco company Philip Morris,
became the first "whistle-blower"
to begin tearing down the wall of
secrecy built by the tobacco in-
dustry. He was a key witness in
the federal government's case
against the industry and has tes-
tified before Congress, the Food
and Drug Administration and
former Vice President Al Gore's
Tobacco Settlement Committee.
He has been featured on several
TV shows such as "60 Minutes",
"Dateline NBC" and Sunday
Morning with David Brinkley.
Victor DeNoble, Ph.D. was
employed by Philip Morris in the


Behavioral Research Department
from 1980-1984. He performed
in-house Philip Morris rat studies
on nicotine and addiction and
was later fired by Philip Morris be-
cause of sensitive nature of what
studies revealed about nicotine
addiction. As a former employee
of tobacco giant Phillip Morris
Dr. DeNoble speaks about his
experiences from inside the dark
side of tobacco. He shares im-
portant information about how
tobacco companies target youth
as 'replacement smokers' for the
30,000 smokers who die everyday
from the harmful effects of nico-
tine. Dr. DeNoble said he is deter-
mined to get the truth out about
what the tobacco industry knew


about nicotine and that they were
consciously killing people who
are addicted. In April 1994, seven
executives from the tobacco in-
dustry stood before Congress and
testified that nicotine was not ad-
dictive, but rather it was a choice.
Two weeks after the testimony on
April 28, DeNoble testified that
the Philip Morris and the other six
tobacco executives knew 10 years
earlier that nicotine is an addictive
drug and were fully conscious the
product killed people. "My con-
tribution is to show what the to-
bacco industry knew and when.
My role is to tell that the tobacco
companies made a conscious de-
cision not to make a safer cigarette
that could have saved lives. They


chose to make money and profits
over lives," DeNoble says. Every-
one who is interested in learning
the truth about how the tobacco
companies target young people
to become smokers or dippers
and work to keep them addicted
will be interested in hearing Dr.
DeNoble's message.
Dr. DeNoble will speak in
Moore Haven at the Doyle Con-
ner Building at 6 p.m. on Monday,
Nov. 17 and at Flora and Ella's
Restaurant at 7 a.m. on Tuesday,
Nov. 18. The talks are free and
open to the public. Breakfast will
be available for purchase on Tues-
day. Dr. DeNoble will also speak
to students in schools in Hendry
and Glades counties.

Greenhouse
Vegetables
What are the best vegetables
to grow in a greenhouse? What
is the best soil to use for planters
in a greenhouse? Steve-
Almost any kind of vegetable
can be grown in a greenhouse,
but as space is often limited,
choose those that can be staked,
vining plants that can trained to
a trellis or those that are able to
stand up on their own. Plants that
provide a continuous crop are
also a better choice that ones that
are completely harvested.
Also consider how long it will
take to grow the crop to maturity.
Long-season plants may be an in-
efficient use of expensive green-
house space. Popular greenhouse
plants could include tomatoes,
peppers, cucumbers, pole beans
and peas plus most herb plants.
Among those that would take
up a lot of space but give limited
amount of produce would be
sweet corn, sweet potatoes, and
watermelons.
Almost any vegetable can be
grown in a greenhouse, but in our
area, equal gardening success at
a reduced cost can be done out-
side. Cool season plants like col-
lards and other cole crops will
make it through all but the most
severe hard freeze.
The best greenhouse soils
would be the artificial soil mixes
found at garden centers. See the
UF Bulletin "Mini-gardening"
(http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/VH032 )
for more hints on selecting plants
and container soils.


Vegetable Fertilizers
What is the best fertilizer for
vegetables? I was told that it was
best to use composted cow ma-
nure. How do you know when to
fertilize vegetables? Charlie -
Fertilizers used in the vegetable
garden can be either slow release
or quick release. The amount
applied and the frequency will
be much different depending on
which is used.
Slow release fertilizers are of-
ten called "organic" fertilizers,
and are usually a more expensive
form of nutrients. Before being
absorbed, they must be changed
into soluble forms that can be
taken up by the plant roots. They
are often added to garden bed
soils when planted, and a sup-
plemental "side-dressings" may
be added throughout the crops
growing season.
Quick release nutrients are
often in-organic forms that are
ready to be taken into the veg-
etable plant, but they also can be
washed out of the soil if there is
too much rain (or irrigation).
Composted cow manure is an
organic source, but the relative
amount (called the analysis) of
nutrients is often quite low. Most
vegetables will need more than
just cow manure as a nutrient
source. Organic material is quite
valuable to the vegetable garden,
however, as it serves as the "glue"
that helps to keep fertilizers and
beneficial soil organisms in place.
Compost is another great source
of organic material.
I'd recommend that a combi-
nation be used: apply the granu-
lar organic forms at planting, then
use dilute solutions of soluble fer-
tilizers as the seeds or plants start
to grow, and follow-up with side


dressings of additional granular
fertilizers if needed. Check the
results of your soil test or review
the Florida Vegetable Gardening
Guide (http://edis.ifas.ufl.edu/
VH021) for the exact amount
needed per foot of garden row.
Watering Small Vegetable
Plants
Do young vegetable plants
started from seed need to be wa-
tered every day? How much -just
a sprinkle? When is the best time
to water plants In the mornings
or evenings? What does it mean
when leaves turn yellow on veg-
etable plants? Tim-
When growing vegetable
transplants or starting them in
the garden, check the seedlings
every day to see if they need wa-
ter. Use the finger test: stick your
finger into the soil to see it if feels
cool. If it is, it is probably moist
enough; if it feels dry, it will need
water. Then don't water again un-
til it feels dry.
The amount to water will de-
pend on the size of the plants
and how much rain has recently
fallen. Right now, /2 to 1 inch of
rain or irrigation per week would
be more than enough. Best time
to water plants is in the morning;
that way if the plants get wet, they
will dry off before dark. Wet, dark
plants are more likely to rot.
If all the leaves are turning yel-
low, it can mean that the roots are
waterlogged or maybe affected
by a soil born fungi. It could also
be a number of other issues like a
lack of fertilizer. If it's just the bot-
tom few leaves, it may be a nor-
mal leaf loss as new leaves shade
out older ones. Bring us a picture
or a whole plant if you have sev-
eral plants to spare.


Small seed spacing
How do you plant tiny veg
etable seeds without getting
them too unevenly distributed?
Last year all my carrots came
up bunched together and I really
had to thin them. Teresa -
There are some companies
that sell "seed tape" where seed
are spaced out at the proper
distance. Others make pelitized
seed little "pills" that are easier
to handle. However, these are
expensive ways to insure proper
seed spacing.
I like to carefully open a corner
of the seed pack and lightly tap
my finger on the side to let out a
few seed at a time. Another idea
is to mix some of the seed with a
small amount of coarse builder's
sand or vermiculite, which would
then be easer to spread in the
seed furrow. In most cases, thin-
ning carrot seedlings will usually
be needed.

It is time to organize your
schedule so that you can take
the time off during Thanksgiving
week to attend the Big "0" Hike
around Lake Okeechobee. The
Hike will begin in Pahokee on
Nov. 22, and end at Pahokee on
Nov. 30.
That's nine days of walking
from 9 to 14 miles a day to make
it all the way around the lake.
There is a little bit of a challenge
to this walk. Hundreds of people
have tried over the years and (for
some reason) only about 20 to 30
percent of the walkers manage to
finish the 9 days. So plan now and
get in shape for November.
For further information please
call Paul at 561-963-9906.

Nurse Practitioner's Week


Hope HealthCare Programs


At Hendry Regional
Medical Center

Your Partner in Health The
Nurse Practitioner' is the theme
for the 2008 National Nurse Prac-
titioner's (NPs) Week, Nov. 9
through Nov. 15.
Hendry Regional Medical
Center wants to celebrate the
vital role and provide awareness
that NPs play in bringing high-
quality, cost-effective and per-
sonalized health care to Hendry
and Glades Counties.
A Nurse Practitioner is your
partner in health, providing qual-
ity primary care services, similar
to those of a physician.
Nurse Practitioners are reg-
istered nurses with advanced
education and advanced clinical
training.
They bring a unique perspec-
tive to health care services in that
they place emphasis on both
care and cure.
Along with clinical services,
NPs focus on health promo-
tion, disease prevention, health
education and counseling, while
guiding patient to make smarter
health and lifestyle choices.
Nurse Practitioners practice
under the rules and regulations
of the state in which they are li-
censed.
Most NPs are nationally certi-
fied in their specialty area; they
are recognized as expert health

Is Your Gallbladder Acting Up?


By Dr. Leonard Carroll
HRMC Board Certified General
Surgeon
The gallbladder is a pear-
shaped organ that sits under the
liver and stores bile. Bile helps to
digest fats. It is attached to the bile
ducts that come from the liver.
These ducts carry bile from the
liver to the gallbladder, where it
is concentrated, and then to the
intestine, where the bile helps to
digest the food.

Gallstones
Gallstones can form in the
gallbladder because of excessive
cholesterol in bile. They can be
smaller than a grain of sand or
as large as a golf ball. They can
also form if the gallbladder does
not empty as it should. People
who are overweight or who are
trying to lose weight quickly are
more prone to get gallstones.
Gallstones are a very common
medical problem. When they
cause pain or other problems,
treatment is usually needed. The
removal of the gallbladder is one
of the most common types of sur-
gery performed in this county. In
the past, open abdominal surgery
was the traditional treatment. The
procedure required a five to seven
day stay in the hospital and a five
to seven inch incision and scar on
the abdomen.

Gallbladder Attacks
Most gallbladder attacks are
due to gallstones. People can go
for years with digestive symptoms
and never realize that they may be
related to a gallbladder problem.
That's because they are so simi-
lar to other digestive symptoms;
constipation is one of the most
commonly missed ones. Those
at risk may fall under the five F's
1. female, 2. forty or over, 3. fat
(obese), 4. fertile (kids), 5. flatu-
lent (gas).
Gallbladder attack symptoms
can include the following:
*Moderate to severe pain un-
der the right side of the rib cage
Pain may radiate through to
the back or below the right shoul-
der blade
*Severe upper abdominal
pain
Nausea or vomiting
Gas
Attacks often occur at night or
after overeating. Pain will often,

but not always, follow a meal in-
cluding fats or grease. Pain may
also be worse with deep breaths.
Attacks can last anywhere from
15 minutes to 15 hours.

Laparoscopic Cholecystec-
tomy
Laparoscopic surgery, some-
times called band-air surgery, is
a modern technique in which op-
erations in the abdomen are per-
formed through small incisions.
A cholecystectomy is the surgical
removal of the gallbladder.
The technique is performed as
follows: The patient receives gen-
eral anesthesia. A small incision is
made at the navel (point A) and a
tube carrying the video camera is
inserted.
The surgeon inflates the ab-
domen with carbon dioxide, a
harmless gas, for easier viewing
and to provide room for the sur-
gery to be performed.
Next, two long instruments
are inserted (points B and C).
These instruments serve as tiny
hands within the abdomen. They
can pick up the gallbladder, move
intestines around, and generally
assist the surgeon.
Finally, several different instru-
ments are inserted (point D) to
clip the gallbladder artery and bile
duct and to safely dissect and re-


move the gallbladder and stones.
When the gallbladder is freed, it
is then teased out of the tiny na-
vel incision. The entire procedure
normally takes 30 to 60 minutes.
The four puncture wounds re-
quire no stitches and may leave
very slight blemishes. The navel
incision is barely visible.

What Are the Benefits?
The main benefit of this pro-
cedure is the ease of recovery for
the patient. There is no incision
pain that occurs with standard
abdominal surgery. The patient is
up and about the very same day.
In fact, up to 90 percent of
patients go home on the same
day as the surgery; the other 10
percent are usually discharged
the next day. Within several days,
normal activities can be resumed.
Also, the scars on the abdomen
are very small.
Gallbladder removal by lap-
aroscopic surgery is an exciting
development because it offers so
much to the patient. The surgeon
carefully evaluates each case and
discusses it with the patient.
While problems can occur
with the procedure, it's unlikely.
In almost all instances, patients
experience excellent results, and
resume their day-to-day activities
very quickly.

Tequesta Indians and Sea Wolves


Submitted photo/NOAA Photo Library
The "Sea Wolves" were a popular food item for the Tequesta, although not all ate the animal. The Sea Wolf is better known
to the world as a Caribbean Monk Seal -- a species that is extinct.


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The tide's invasion ended at
the high water mark, as wind
swept dunes and sea oats stood
like guardians, banishing the
sea's advance.
The frothy tide slowly retreat-
ed, leaving in its wake abandoned
sea grasses and marine debris
that formed a dark thin border
paralleling the shoreline.
The debris from the retreating
sea soon attracted thousands of
screaming, diving birds and scur-
rying crabs.
The sea wolves elongated
shapes moving like fat, brown
caterpillars, advanced cautiously
from the water's edge toward the
dunes.
Their streamlined bodies
squirmed and flopped across the
hard wet sand until they reached
the edge of the dunes.
The sluggish sea wolves
stretched their bulging stom-
achs across the warm sands and
drowsily basked in the warmth of
the tropical sun.
What were sea wolves and
who were the Tequesta?
It is time to take a "Walk in The
Past" and read Fontaneda's Tall
Tales about the Tequesta Indians
and the sea wolves.
Fontaneda, a Spanish cast-
away taken captive by the Calusa
Indians, described the Tequesta
Indians living on the keys.
He said, "These Indians have
no gold, less sliver, and less cloth-
ing.
"They go naked, except only
some breech-cloths woven of
palm, with which the men cover
themselves; the women do the
like with certain grass that grows
on trees.
"This grass looks like wool, al-


though it is different from it. The
common food is fish, and snails
(all of which are alike fish), and
tunny and whale; which is ac-
cording to what I saw while I was
among these Indians.
"Some eat sea-wolves; not all
of them, for there is a distinction
between the higher and lower
classes, but the principle persons
eat them.
"There is another fish, which
we here call langosta (Lobster)
and one like unto a chapin (truck-
fish), of which they consume not
less than the former."
The wool that Fontaneda re-
ferred to was Spanish moss and
the snails (clams, oysters and
conch) were shellfish.
The Spanish term "sea wolf"
was used to describe the Carib-
bean monk seal, also known as
the West Indian seal, which once
inhibited the Caribbean Sea and
Gulf of Mexico.
The seals were once numer-
ous in the keys. The last seal
sighting in the keys was at Key
West in 1922, and it was killed.
The Caribbean Monk seal was
hunted into extinction. The seals
were unique to the Tequesta and
must have held a social or reli-
gious status, since only the Te-
questa from the high cast system
could eat them.
So who were the Tequesta?
Some linguistics thinks the
Tequesta may have spoken the
Calusa language, which would
link the Tequesta directly to the
Calusa culture.
If they were kissing cousins
it didn't help much because the
Calusa Indians dominated them
and demanded tribute.
The Tequesta Indian nation
lived on the southeast coast of
Florida in areas known today as
Miami, Dade, and Broward coun-


ties.
However, some of the Te-
questa villages relocated from the
mainland to the keys during the
mosquito season, which lasted
about three months.
There are numerous Spanish
documents that make reference
to the Tequesta living in the keys.
The Tequesta's practiced hu-
man sacrifice.
A Spanish priest heard that a
young girl was going to be sacri-
ficed to celebrate a peace treaty
with the Santaluces Indians.
The priest sent a message
to the chief begging him not to
sacrifice the young girl, so the Te-
questa chief relented.
Other Spanish priests saw the
Tequesta Indians worshipping a
stuffed deer, which was a symbol-
ic representative from the sun.
They also reported a bird's
head carved in pine that was
stored in a temple, along with
carved masks used in festivals.
The sacrifices, Tequesta tem-
ples and masks bare great simi-
larity in the Calusa culture.
An archeological discovery ten
years ago brought the forgotten
Tequesta Indian nation back into
the limelight of Native American
history.
The Miami Circle, also known
as the Miami River Circle is locat-
ed on the site of a Tequesta village
south of the Miami River.
There are 24 large holes cut
into the bedrock, forming a circle
approximately 38 feet in diam-
eter.
The Circle was discovered dur-
ing an archeological survey of
a site being cleared for the con-
struction of a high-rise building in
1998, and is believed be 1700 to
2000 years old.
Some think the site was the Te-
questa capital, but no one is sure


of its true significance.
I find it interesting that Fon-
tenado said the Tequesta had no
gold and little silver.
The Tequesta Indian nation
included territories that are now
termed the "Gold Coast."
It is a term used to describe the
Florida coast from Miami to Palm
Beach, where many gold and sil-
ver coins have been found.
The Gulf Stream runs much
closer to shore in Palm Beach
County, so maybe the ships that
sank in the Tequesta territories
(Dade and Broward Counties)
were in deeper water and not
savaged by the Tequesta Indians,
which would account for no gold
and little silver.
The Florida coast starting at
Hobe Sound (Martin County) and
ending at Sebastian Inlet (Indian
River County) is described as the
"Treasure Coast" because so
many ships laden with gold and
silver wrecked in these areas.
The famous 1715 Spanish
Treasure Fleet wrecked on the
Treasure Coast.
There will be other "Tall Tales"
in next week's edition of "A Walk
in The Past" when Fontanedo and
Jonathan Dickinson, a Quaker,
describes the Ais Indian nation
that lived on the Treasure Coast.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

Museum if you have questions,
artifacts, pictures or a "Whale of a
Tale" that you would like to share.

Marie Waltz
Crawford, 77
WEST MELBOURNE Marie
Waltz Crawford, 77, died in her
home in West Melbourne Thursday,
Oct. 9, 2008.
Born in New York and raised in Oil
City and Meadville, Pa., Mrs. Craw-
ford lived most of her life in Miami,
where she worked as a bookkeep-
er/secretary at the Earl Billings Music
Company for attorney Marion Sibley
many years, and part-time at the Bi-
scayne Kennel Club in North Miami.
She married Robert Crawford in
Miami and began a totally different
life joining her husband as an avid
sports person, developing long-last-
ing friendships while hunting and
fishing in exotic locations such as
Argentina, Alaska, the Bahama is-
lands, Nicaragua, Honduras, Mexico,
Belize, Costa Rica, Hawaii and South
Africa.
Upon retirement, they moved to
Moore Haven, next door to Hicpoch-
ee Hunting Lodge on Riverside
Drive. They hosted innumerable
hunting and fishing parties as well as
dock parties, tasty fishfrys and family
gatherings.
An enthusiastic dog lover, she was
nearly always accompanied by a
Boston Terrier, Clem, Pumpkin or
Gus, and at the height of their hunt-
ing adventures, a Chocolate Lab
named Bear.
After Robert contracted Parkin-
son's disease, they moved to West
Melbourne where he died in 2003.
They are terribly missed by all.
Memorial services were held Satur-
day Nov. 8, 2008, under the Big Cy-
press tree on the Caloosa Hatchee
river.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives Notice of its intent to grant a solic
waste Construction/Operation Permit (No. 0210803-005-SO/22) for the proposed
project as detailed in the application (No. 0210803-005-SO/22), to the applicant
Waste Management Inc. of Florida, c/o John C. Casagrande, Vice President, 270C
NW 48th Street, Pompano Beach, Florida 33073.
The Permit, when issued, will allow the Permittee to construct and operate new Con-
struction and Demolition Debris disposal units, designated as Phases 2 thru 17

unit Phase 1 (comprising 8 acres) ofthe facility. The maximum design elevation o
the disposal area when filled, including the final cover, will be 165 feet above Na-
tional Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD). The facility is specifically identified as
GLADES LANDFILL, LLC, located east of State Road (SR) 78, approximately 2.5
miles north of the intersection of SR 78 and U.S. Highway 27, which is about 1.5
miles west of Moore Haven in Glades County, Florida.
The Department's file on this matter is available for public inspection during norma
business hours, 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except legal holi-
days, at Florida Department of Environmental Protection, South District, 2295 Vic-
toria Avenue, Suite 374, Fort Myers, Florida. The Department will issue the Permit
unless a timely petition for an administrative hearing is filed under Sections 120.56E
and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes or all parties reach a written agreement on media-
tion as an alternative remedy under Section 120.573 before the deadline for filing i
petition. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing, if me-
diation does not result in a settlement. The procedures for petitioning for a hearing
are set forth below, followed by the procedures for pursuing mediation.
A person whose substantial interests are affected by the above-proposed agency
action may petition for an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections
120.569 and 120.57 of the Florida Statutes. The petition must contain the informa-
tion set forth below and must be filed (received) in the Department's Office of Gener-
al Counsel, Marjory Stoneman Dough 1:,,,1',,.i 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard
Mail Station 35, Tallahassee, Florida ',' . Petitions filed by any persons
other than those entitled to written notice under Section 120.60(3) of the Florida
Statutes must be filed within fourteen (14) days of publication of this notice or re-
ceipt of the written notice, whichever occurs first. The petitioner shall mail a copy o
the petition to the applicant at the address indicated above at the time of filing. The
failure of any person to file a petition (or a request for mediation, as discussed be-
low) within the appropriate time period shall constitute a waiver of that person's right
to request an administrative determination (hearing) under Sections 120.569 anc
120.57 of the Florida Statutes, or to intervene in this proceeding and participate as i
party to it. Any subsequent intervention (in a proceeding initiated by another party)
will be only at the discretion of the presiding officer upon the filing of a motion ir
compliance with Rule 28-106.205 of the Florida Administrate Code.
A petition that disputes the material facts on which the Department's action is base
must contain the following information:
(a) The name, address, and telephone number of each petitioner, the applicant's
name and address, the Department File Number and the county in which the project
is proposed;
(b) A statement of how and when each petitioner received notice of the Depart-
ment s action or proposed action;
(c) A statement of how each petitioner's substantial interests are or will be affected
by the Department's action or proposed action;
(d) A statement of all material facts disputed by petitioner or a statement that there
are no disputed facts;
) A statement of the ultimate facts alleged, including a statement of the specific
cts that the petitioner contends warrant reversal of modification of the Depart-
ment's action or proposed action;
f) A statement of the specific rules or statutes the petitioner contends require rever-
sal or modification of the Department's action or proposed action; and
(g) A statement of the relief sought by the petitioner, stating precisely the action the
petitioner wants the Department to take with respect to the Department's action oi
proposed action.
A petition that does not dispute the material facts on which the Department's action
is based shall state that no such facts are in dispute and otherwise shall contain the
same information as set forth above, as required by Rule 28-106.301, FA.C. Be-
cause the administrative hearing process is designed to formulate final agency ac-
tion, the filing of a petition means that the Department's final action may be different
from the position taken by it in this notice. Persons whose substantial interests wil
be affected by any such final decision of the Department have the right to petition tc
become a party to the proceeding, in accordance with the requirements set forth
above. In addition to requesting an administrative hearing, any petitioner may elec
to pursue mediation. The election may be accomplished by filing with the Depart-
ment a mediation agreement with all parties to the proceeding (i.e., the applicant, the
Department, and any person who has filed a timely and sufficient petition for a hear-
ing). The agreement must contain all the information required by Rule 28-106.404
FA.C. The agreement must be received by the clerk in the Office of General Counse
of the Department at 3900 Commonwealth Boulevard, Mail Station 35, Tallahassee
Florida 32399-3000, within ten (10) days after the deadline for filing a petition, as
set forth above. Choosing mediation will not adversely affect the right to a hearing
if mediation does not result in a settlement.
The agreement to mediate must include the following:
(a) the names, addresses, and telephone numbers of any persons who may attend
the mediation;
(b) the name, address, and telephone number of the mediator selected by the par-
ties, or a provision for selecting a mediator within a specified time;
c the agreed allocation ofthe costs and fees associated with the mediation;
d the agreement of the parties on the confidentiality of discussions and documents
introduced during mediation;
te) the date, time, and place of the first mediation session, or a deadline for holding
[e first session, if no mediator has yet been chosen;
(f) the name of each party's representative who shall have authority to settle or rec-
ommend settlement;
(g) either an explanation of how the substantial interests of each mediating party wil
be affected by the action or proposed action addressed in this action or a statement
clearly identifying the petition for hearing that each party has already filed, and incor-
porating it by reference; and
(h) the signatures of all parties or their authorized representatives.
As provided in Section 120.573 of the Florida Statutes (F.S.), the timely agreement
of all parties to mediate will toll the time limitations imposed by Sections 120.569
and 120.57, ES. for requesting and holding an administrative hearing. Unless oth-
erwise agreed to by the parties, the mediation must be concluded within sixty (60)
days of receipt of the execution of the agreement. If mediation results in settlement
of the administrative dispute, the Department must enter a final order incorporating
the agreement of the parties. Persons whose substantial interests will be affected
by such a modified final decision of the Department have a right to petition for
hearing only in accordance with the requirements for such petitions set forth above
and must, therefore, file their petitions within fourteen (14) days of receipt of this
notice, or they shall be deemed to have waived their right to a proceeding undei
Sections 120.569 and 20.57, FS. If mediation terminates without settlement of the
dispute, the Department shall notify all parties in writing that the administrative hear-
ing processes under Sections 120.569 and 120.57, F.S., are resumed.

Lake 0 17th annual walk

This year's Big 0 Hike will kick off Nov. 22 at the Pahokee Marina. The annual event is cus-
tomarily well attended by locals and tourists.

Glades General Hospital
For the second time in three years, Captain Flintlock came ashore on Halloween to recruit
new pirates for his ship set to sail at midnight. To the delight of patients, visitors, staff
and doctors alike, the good Captain sang a hearty pirate tune and gave out candy to entice
possible recruits.


On Nov. 22, hikers will gather
at the Pahokee Marina to kick off
the 17th Annual Big 0 Hike.
Sinced 1992, the 109 mile
Florida Trail circuit walk known
as the Big 0 Hike has pumped
tourism dollars into small towns
around the lake while encourag-
ing hiking for fitness, drawing visi-
tors from as far away as Ontario
and California.
For nine days the participants


walk from 9.3 to 14.7 miles, start-
ing at sunrise and ending at their
leisure, usually before noon.
Although flat and open, the
trail offers outstanding scenic
views, especially at sunrise and
sunset.
The hike passes through five
counties around Lake Okeecho-
bee where hikers experience the
quiet side of South Florida.
As one of the Florida Trail


Gateway Communities, Pahokee
is an ideal kickoff point for the Big
O Hike.
Join us on Nov. 22 at the Pa-
hokee Marina at 8 a.m., or at any
point along the hike for an inter-
esting and educational walk.
Learn more, including details
of stops along the way at Lox.

Patient, Willie Green, wasn't getting the green light from Dr. Charles Azan to travel tonight,
but his brother RayRay signed on as First Mate in exchange for the Captain's hat.

Gathering supplies
With only one man recruited and Dr. Daniel Kairys assuring the Captain that he had no
money, Flintlock stopped by the Gift Shop to gather some loot for his travels.
As he left the building bellowing on top of his lungs, Captain Flintlock (aka Kevin Tressler,
Director of Materials Management) threatened to return next Halloween.


Wildlife officials to test ducks for avian influenza


Florida Fish and Wildlife Con-
servation Commission (FWC)
and United States Department of
Agriculture Wildlife Services bi-
ologists will collect samples from
hunter-harvested ducks to test for
highly pathogenic avian influenza
-H5N1.
Sampling will occur at various
times during the migratory game
bird hunting season at several
duck-hunting hot spots through-
out Florida.


Hunters will not need to sur-
render their ducks, and participa-
tion is voluntary.
Biologists will obtain the sam-
ples by swabbing the ducks' re-
spiratory and digestive tracts.
Scientists at a diagnostic lab
will test the samples for avian in-
fluenza and other diseases.
The sampling is part of a con-
tinuing international surveillance
effort to determine if migratory
birds carry the highly pathogenic


H5N1 strain of avian influenza in
North America.
Last year, more than 65,000
samples were collected nation-
wide, including more than 1,200
samples from Florida.
None of the samples tested
positive for the virus, including
the 481 collected at check stations
in Florida's wildlife management
areas.
While it is extremely unlikely
that hunters could contract avian


influenza from wild birds in Flor-
ida, officials recommend taking
common-sense precautions to
reduce the risk of contracting any
disease from wildlife.
For instance, do not harvest
or handle wild birds that are
obviously sick or found dead;
wear rubber gloves while clean-
ing game; clean game outdoors
and stay upwind of game while
cleaning; and do not eat, drink or
smoke while cleaning game.


It's also important to wash
hands with soap and water im-
mediately after handling game or
cleaning bird feeders.
Wash tools and work surfaces
used to clean game birds with
soap and water, then disinfect
with a 10-percent bleach solu-
tion.
In addition, hunters should
separate raw meat, and anything
it touches, from cooked or ready-
to-eat foods to avoid contamina-


tion.
The FWC recommends cook-
ing game birds thoroughly. Meat
should reach an internal tempera-
ture of 165 degrees Fahrenheit to
kill disease organisms and para-
sites.
For more information about
avian influenza and the FWC's
monitoring program, including
how to report observations of
dead birds, visit MyFWC.com/
bird/AvianInfluenza.htm.

An Educational Toy: Finding our way home


Our guide when we
cannot see the
horizon

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Many times when I was grow-
ing up, we'd find a "treasure"
when shopping around.
For years after the end of World
War II there were lots of military
surplus items that found their way
into local second-hand stores and
surplus centers.
Many of them were great finds
to do-it-yourselfers, radio ama-
teurs and hobbyists of all sorts of
interests.
One day when "shopping"
with my father and brothers, we
came upon a bubble sextant.
They were originally estimated


to cost the government a few hun-
dred dollars each; now they were
on sale for fifty cents a piece.
Their purpose was for celestial
navigation; to guide an aircraft.
Two of them had to come
home!
My father had a sailboat ear-
lier in his life and they brought
back memories as well as being
something he could share with
his sons.
This was a great learning expe-
rience.
I didn't master all of the details
but I learned enough to "shoot
the sun" or get an angle between
a star and the earth, seeing how I
might figure out the time from the
angle of the sun or explore ways
to use it as a level.
It was different than the usual
sextants, the kind my father would
have had on his boat.
Instead of looking for the ho-


rizon, there was a bubble level
built into it.
It was much like the level used
in hanging pictures or building
houses. It was for aircraft use and
provided an artificial horizon.
A plane above the clouds or
flying on a very dark night when
everything was blacked out might
still be able to find its way home
or where it was going.
The bubble provided an invisi-
ble horizon even when there were
no landmarks or there was noth-
ing to be seen in the distance.
Long before satellites were
even thought of, or when radio
navigation was still in its infancy,
the combination of a simple level
and a way of measuring angles
gave a means of finding our way
and bringing us safely home.
For me, it was a toy, a relic of
another time, something that was
once very valuable but now had


little worth or purpose.
I was fascinated with it for
awhile sharing in my imagina-
tion a time gone by when people
crossed oceans with much great-
er courage then we need today.
The Bible has many stories
about navigational dangers; Jo-
nah who thinks he is going to Tar-
shish and winds up in Nineveh,
the very place he doesn't want to
go.
There were disciples who were
afraid of being lost in a storm at
sea while Jesus is sleeping in the
stern of their boat.
He becomes their guide and
calms their fears about being lost
(Mark 4:36ff).
Paul tells about being ship-
wrecked three times (2 Corinthi-
ans 11L25) but he continues on
"through visions and revelations"
(12:1) as his guide.
These can be our guide too


when we don't see the horizon
or feel lost or can't find a familiar
landmark.
An invisible force inside of a
direction finder kept a bubble
floating to provide a horizon, and
it became a way to find the way.
A force is also within us; faith
will provide a sense of direction,
help us find our way home, give
us assurance when the night is
dark and there seems to be noth-
ing around to guide us.
It will provide us with the cour-
age to venture out when the way
is unknown or the world seems
full of hidden dangers.
There are those navigational
plans; to guide us in the earthly
world and to guide us in the world
of the spirit.
We can rely on them both to
get us through and take us where
we need to go.
I count myself as fortunate


when I grew up.
My brothers and I were en-
couraged to be curious and had
our quest to explore stimulated.
We were given "toys" at times
that weren't really toys and we
learned how to "navigate" around
strange objects, to ask questions,
to search for answers and direc-
tion.
Sometimes what we learned
pointed to greater truths ; they let
us marvel at great deeds done by
saintly people, taught us some-
thing about faith and seeing God
at work.
There are many blessings out
there: God comes to His faithful
and shows us the horizon within
us, guides us in safety and finally
leads us home


Thanksgiving is really Thanksliving!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
At First Christian Church we
are celebrating the entire month
of November as Thanksliving
Month.
We are urging all not to just
"Give" Thanks but to "Live"
Thanks the entire month!
William Law, a 17th century
Englishman, once asked: "Would
you know who is the greatest
saint? It is not the man who prays
most or who does most. It is the
man who is most thankful."
Were did Mr. Law get such an
idea?
He, like many Englishmen
of his day, was deeply versed in
Scripture.
In I Thessalonians 5:18 Paul
wrote, "In everything give thanks;
for this is the will of God in Christ
Jesus for you."
The man who wrote those
words endured much hardship
for Christ.
The great apostle Paul was ar-
rested, tried, and imprisoned.
He was beaten with whips and
rods. Once he was stoned and left
for dead. He suffered shipwreck,
perils in the water, perils in the


city, perils in the wilderness.
He was badly used by his own
countrymen, by robbers and false
brethren.
He experienced weariness,
toil, sleeplessness, hunger and
thirst, cold and nakedness. Finally
he was beheaded.
Yet he wrote, "In everything
give thanks."
Notice that Paul did not say
FOR everything but IN every-
thing.
Surely he did not thank God
for all of these dreadful things that
happened to him.
But because he knew that "all
things work together for good to
those who love God" (Romans
8:28) he could thank God in those
dreadful circumstances.
This is why he could write, "I
have learned in whatever state I
am, to be content" (Philippians
4:11).
Arthur Callendro writes, "I am
similarly impress by the Pilgrims
who did so much to shape the
great heritage we have in Amer-
ica.
"If you have ever been to the
New England coast in winter,
you can appreciate what they en-
dured. Imagine a small band of
people arriving in early Decem-


ber.
"The trees were barren. Grass
which was lush and green in
summer is now yellowish-brown
and dry.
"The ground is getting hard as
the winter freezes begins. There is
little food, for the growing season
is past. It's cold.
"The winds blowing in off the
North Atlantic bite into the set-
tler's bodies as if searching for the
very marrow of their bones.
"As they look across the ocean
toward England, they see nothing
more than gray waves pounding,
churning spray upon still grayer
rocks.
"New England is a hostile, for-
bidding place in winter, yet the
Pilgrims managed to build shel-
ters.
"By summer half of them were
dead of disease, deprivation, and
exposure to cold.
"But a small group of hardy
ones survived to see the May-
flower return to England, not one
of them choosing to go with it. In
spite of the hardships they deter-
mined to stay.
"With the help of Indians they
planted their first crops and when
the short growing season ended,
they did not have that much.


"Yet when the harvest came,
the dominant idea in their minds
was to give thanks to God for
what they had.
"They had a celebration, a
time of thanksgiving for God's
blessing.
"The first Thanksgiving was a
holy day.
"Wouldn't it be great if you and
I as individuals and our nation as
a whole could once again think
of Thanksgiving as a holy day in-
stead of just another holiday?
"The Pilgrims believe that Al-
mighty God who created them
was over all, and that men, wom-
en, and children were dependent
upon Him.
"Things have changed over
the years. The dominant attitude
today is that we are masters of
life.
"We feel we are in charge of
the world and don't need this
God so much anymore.
"We can handle everything
ourselves.
"It is more difficult for a mod-
ern person to be grateful, and that,
I believe, is why Thanksgiving has
changed from being a holy day to
being a holiday."

Anchor Avoid getting the Chickenpox and get a shot!


Deep



and



Pray

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
The Garden of Gethsemane is
really an olive orchard, and olive
trees still grow there today.
The word Gethsemane itself
means olive press.
An olive press is made from
a large stone placed on a basket
leveraged by several more large
stones on the end of a long pole.
It literally crushes the liquid oil
from the olives.
It is no mistake that Jesus spent
His last evening in the Garden of
Gethsemane.
From there He would go to
the cross and receive the weight
of the world, the gethsemane of
our sins.
Luke describes the pressure
Jesus suffered that evening: "Be-
ing in anguish His sweat was
like drops of blood falling to the
ground."
It is an image of the gathse-
mane crushing the oil from the
olive fruit.
Gethsemane ever since has
come to symbolize suffering.
We are surrounded by gethse-
manes in our life times when in-
nocent people and communities
have suffered.
Times when we feel pressures
and situations pressing down on
us.
Think about Hurricane Wilma
or Tropical Storm Faye.
Think about the proposed U.S.
Sugar buy out or the current finan-
cial crisis around the world, but
more directly around our lives.
Think about the current elec-
tion with all of the amendments
and proposals and the future of
our community and nation.
As I wrote this, I still haven't
fully decided for whom I'm going
to cast my presidential vote.
By the time you read this, it will
have been decided along with a
number of amendments and is-
sues. In the face of such suffering
and conflicting promises, in the
face of the election results, in the
face of our life situation, we ask
ourselves: Who do we turn to?
What do we do? Where do we go
from here?
First, let's look at who we turn
to. In the midst of our suffering
or the oncoming storms, we can
turn to God an ever present help
in times of need.
The psalmist in Psalm 121:1-2
states it this way, "I lift up my eyes
to the hills where does my help
come from? My help comes from
the LORD, the Maker of heaven
and earth." I remember when
Hurricane David headed our way
in 1979.
A college friend had a boat that
he was worried about, so num-
ber of us descended south from
Gainesville to help him secure his
boat for the coming storm.
Being a former Boy Scout, I
was proud of the job we did in
tying down that boat. We lashed
it tightly to the dock, trees, and
even to itself. We were patting
ourselves on the back when a sea
captain informed us that the best
way to secure a boat safely dur-
ing a hurricane was to anchor it
away from the trees and things
which would "get eaten up in the
'cane."
It was better to anchor it deep
with four ropes going out in dif-
ferent directions and pray.
It was good advice then and
is good advice as to what we are
to do. We are to anchor deep and
then we are to pray We are to do
what we can do and then turn to



























































































our Lord.
Now the 20-dollar question,
"Where do we go from here?"
Regardless of who won the
election, regardless of whether
the amendments we wanted or
didn't want passed or failed, re-
gardless of where the economy
is, we are to go on.
We pick up the pieces and go
forward the best we can, trusting
that God, family, and friends will
help us.
We take inventory and try to
realize anew the really important
things in our life, as well as those
important people and then em-
brace them!
Now is when the body of Christ


can really become the hands of
Christ. It is also a time when we
can reach out and embrace our
faith and God's peace as we re-
member the words of Jesus in
John 16:33: "I have told you these
things, so that in me you may
have peace. In this world you will
have trouble. But take heart! I
have overcome the world."


By Brenda Barnes
A lot of people may remember
getting chickenpox as a kid, but
did you know that you can now
get a shot to prevent chickenpox?
Chickenpox is highly infectious
and symptoms can include a
blister-like rash, itching, tiredness,
and fever. Usually, you will start
seeing the rash on the face and
upper body. Imagine trying not to
scratch 250 to 500 "itchy" blisters!
Chickenpox can spread from per-


son to person by direct contact or
through the air from an infected
person's coughing or sneezing.
(Remember to cover your face
with a tissue!) A person with
chickenpox is contagious one to
two days before the rash actually
appears and is still contagious un-
til all blisters have formed scabs.
It takes about 10 to 21 days after
exposure for someone to develop
chickenpox. Chickenpox will usu-
ally last anywhere from five to ten
days and children usually miss


from five to ten days of school or
daycare due to their chickenpox.
According to the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
about one out of ten children can
have complications when they get
chickenpox. These complications
can include infection, dehydra-
tion from vomiting and diarrhea,
or more serious complications
such as pneumonia and encepha-
litis. If a child gets the chickenpox
shot, there is a small chance that
they can still get chickenpox, but


their illness is usually mild, with
no symptoms at all other than a
few red bumps.
It is recommended that chil-
dren get two doses of the varicel-
la vaccine (chickenpox vaccine).
The first dose should be given
when the child is 12 to 15 months
old. It is usually given at the same
time as their MMR vaccine (Mea-
sles, Mumps & Rubella). The sec-
ond dose should be given when
the child is between four and six
years old, before they enter kin-


dergarten or first grade. If you've
had the chickenpox, then you
don't need to get the shot.
Please remember that it is very
important that your kids get all
recommended shots. For a list of
shots that you or your child may
need, please contact the Hendry
County Health Department at 863-
674-4041, LaBelle; 863-983-1408,
Clewiston; or the Glades County
Health Department at 863-946-

tion appeared relaxed and with-
out labor. Then for emphasis,
other pig lungs were withdrawn
and attached to the simulating
pump. These had been exposed
to smoke for 24 hours, and were
mostly black and one side was
shriveled. It's breathing motion
was labored and incomplete.
Needless to say it made an impact
on the audience.
Student, Patricia Annsworth,
used a prop called Mr. Gross
Mouth which shows damage


done by smokeless tobacco. Ac-
cording to statistics, one dip of
tobacco is potent and equal to 30
cigarettes. Miss Annsworth held
up the prop so all could see Mr.
Gross Mouth.
"I don't know of any girl who
would want to kiss that," she
said.
A visiting guest speaker from
Drug Free Charlotte County, Am-
ity Chandler, talked about how
to keep informed of current ado-
lescent drug use. She wanted to
reassure parents that the majority
of their kids are not taking drugs.
That is good news. According to
Ms. Chandler, surveys suggest
many students are not indulging


in substances. However, since
adolescents are like "fast cars
with bad breaks" some may be
influenced to try them, especially
if they truly believe their peers are
using substances.
Amity Chandler suggests that
parents, guardians and teachers
do research on the internet by
going to video sources such as
YouTube. Just enter the words
"how to hide weed", or "how to
get high on Robitussen", or some
similar phrase. Re-enter devia-
tions of those phrases in order to
do a thorough search. She com-
mented that home drug tests are
available for parents, and this may
be used by some parents in order


to give their adolescent a believ-
able excuse for fellow peers, such
as "Are you kidding, my mom has
a drug test at home."
Officials at the coalition meet-
ing mentioned that if an interven-
tion is necessary, call the Glades
County Health Department at
863-946-0707, or Hendry County
Health Department in Clewiston
at 863-983-1408 or in LaBelle at

dents can contact Angelica Pena

Club
Continued From Page 1
Westergaard House.
An annual favorite event spon-
sored by the garden club is the
Plants for School program. It was


first begun in 1977 for fifth grad-
ers. Members give each local fifth
grader a live potted plant in Janu-
ary. The student is given exact
instructions on how to care for
the plant, however the plant must
not be transplanted to a new pot.
After six weeks of tender loving
care, a contest is held in February,


and judged by the Glades County
Garden Club members. First place
winner receives $10, second place
receives $8, third place receives
$6 and fourth place receives $4.
Diana Winiecke, club secre-
tary, mentioned that the event has
been special to many children
and they remember it all through


their lives. Many times members
are told by grown up students
how much they loved the atten-
tion and the living plants. One for-
mer student had kept her pothos
ivy propagated and healthy for
years, and when she got married
she used it as part of her wedding
bouquet.


"We try to encourage them
to take care of their environment
and introduce them to plants,"
Ms. Winiecke said.
The club meets the first Tues-
day of each month beginning
in October. The meetings begin
at 10:30 in the public library in
Moore Haven, and a covered dish


is brought for lunch. The club in-
vites gentlemen and ladies to join.

Hunters, residents warned of possible virus outbreak


Two Everglades Regional Dog
Hunters Association members
had dogs die this past weekend
from a disease with symptoms
the same as Pseudorabies. JW
Corbett Biologists are currently
examining the dogs to confirm
Pseudorabies. ERDHA has re-
ceived reports of 13 other dogs
that died during dog training from
a disease believed to be PRV.
Please be advised that exposure
to wild hogs in this area could be
fatal to your dog. The following is
information about PRV compiled
from available resources. If your
dog becomes infected with PRV
please call FWC Corbett Biologist
Jim Schuete at 561-722-9263.


also known as "mad itch," is not
really a form of rabies. About the
only thing it has in common with
rabies is that it is caused by a vi-
rus, the virus attacks the nervous
system, and it can be acquired by
biting an affected animal. PRV is
actually a virus in the herpes fam-
ily, which infects the brain and
nerves. The infection is fatal in
nearly all animals that become
infected, except pigs. Humans
are resistant to infection. Cattle,
fur-bearing animals like rac-
coons, rats, bears, deer, dogs and
cats (including panthers) can be
infected. Pigs sometimes do not
display observable symptoms
because they have become well
adapted to the virus.


What is it?
Pseudo Rabies Virus (PRV), How do they get it?


In pigs, the disease is spread
contact between pigs. Infected
boars may spread the virus in
their semen. The virus causes
infections that are "hidden" and
"quiet," but be "activated" for up
to a week when the pig is suffi-
ciently stressed they are carriers
of the virus. Latent infections may
last the pig's lifetime. Infection
in dogs and cats occur in areas
where the disease is prevalent in
pigs. In fact, the occurrence of
typical PRV signs in pets can be
the first indication that the dis-
ease is in the local pig population.
Dogs have developed PRV after
biting or being bitten by infected
pigs. There are unconfirmed re-
ports of spread through saliva.
The majority of dogs and cats that
have become infected develop
severe symptoms. It takes any-


where from 3-6 days for symp-
toms to show; once symptoms
show, progression is rabid rarely
lasting longer than 48 hours, until
death.

What affects does it
have?
The initial sign seen by the
dog owner is a change in behav-
ior such as inactivity, sleepiness,
indifference, even aggression or
restlessness. Difficulty breathing,
diarrhea, and vomiting are oc-
casionally seen. Normal or ab-
normal body temperature and
excessive salivation are common
findings. The most characteris-
tic sign is intense itching, usu-
ally occurring in the head region,
but also in other areas, such as
neck and shoulders. One side of


the head and neck may become
swollen. The dog may violently
scratch their faces and ears, rub
their heads and bit themselves.
Self mutilation may result in red-
ness, skin abrasion, and ulcer-
ation of skin and underlying tis-
sues. The scratching becomes
increasingly more frantic and may
end up in generalized convulsion.
In some cases, the itching may
be absent. Neurological symp-
toms that occur are uneven size
pupils, droopy eyelids, chewing,
facial paralysis, head tilt, inability
to swallow, and hoarse voices.
Sometimes animals are sensitive
to touch, some become lame and
have generalized convulsions. Pa-
ralysis of the limbs is sometimes
noted shortly before death.

Is there any


treatment?
Treatment of PRV is generally
futile since the disease is almost
always fatal. Heavy sedation and
anesthesia may lessen or relieve
the itching and convulsions; how-
ever, nothing can alter the out-
come of the disease.

Can it be prevented?
Prevention is the most impor-
tant means of control of PRV in
dogs and cats. Contact with pigs
and especially feeding animals
raw pork from endemic areas
should be avoided. It is possible
to vaccinate small animals against
PRV Consult your vet for more in-
formation.

One-vehicle accident kills young girl


Loss of young woman
saddens community

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- A one-
vehicle accident occurred on the
southern fringe of Moore Haven,
Oct. 31 about 11:55 p.m. It was
located near the intersection of
Riverside Drive, and Hicpochee
Lane, according to a report by
Deputy Sheriff S.R. Casserly,
GCSO.
The vehicle was southbound
on Riverside Drive, which runs
along the Caloosahatchee River.
The vehicle was approaching
the intersection with Hicpochee
Lane when the driver, Amy Lundy
of Moore Haven, lost control of
the vehicle on a shallow curve.
It rotated and overturned several
times, and the driver was ejected.
Two adult passengers, Kaicee
Quiring of LaBelle, and Teala
Stokes of Chokoloskee, were in-
jured. Two other unidentified pas-
sengers were in the vehicle, and
it is unknown if they were injured
or not. All injured occupants were
taken to Glades Regional Medical


Center by Glades County EMS.
The section of Riverside Drive
where the accident occurred is a
dirt road in a rural area without
street lights. The driver and two


adult passengers were not wear-
ing seat belts.
Later, on Nov. 3, Amy Lundy
died of her injuries at Lee Memo-
rial Hospital. An investigation is


being conducted by Florida High-
way Patrol.

A representative from Drug

Ms. Stallings that there is an anon-
ymous survey for high school
students to fill out. It seeks honest
answers about alcohol and drug
use, and it is ready for schools.
Safety issues for the gravel
section of Riverside Road that
runs along the river towards Lake
Hicpochee was addressed at the
meeting. Since it is not paved,


there are few things that can be
implemented with the exception
of increased signage.
