Fishing report,
festival results, and
River Oaks Canal

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- The
New Hope Fall Festival on
Nov. 8 in Moore Haven was a
family event held at the Chalo
Nitka grounds. Pastor Darrel
Branham reports that over 500
hot dogs and other free good-
ies were served. All booth par-
ticipants who signed up were
present that day.
"It was amazing to see so
many families there," said Pas-
tor Branham.
He mentioned that the blood
mobile had a continuous dona-
tion line for a while, and a lot
of information on local services
and programs was available.
Music and games kept attend-
ees entertained. He praised


the volunteer work of Brenda
Walker and others.
New Hope Baptist Church
is already planning next year's
festival, and it is currently get-
ting ready to prepare a float
for the Chalo Nitka parade in
March.
The River Oaks neighbor-
hood of Ortona is excited about
the new prospect of reopening
the River Oaks Canal. It seems
that the DEP has allowed a per-
mit for removal of plug that has
prohibited access to the Caloo-
sahatchee River for the last 21
years. Funding, a public hear-
ing, and documentation are
the next necessary steps to be
taken.
David Dannenhauer, Mick-
ey's Bait and Tackle in Moore
Haven, mentioned that blue-
gill have been active and look-
ing for crickets at Uncle Joe's
cut along the rim canal in east
Glades County. Bass are be-
ing caught on 10 inch plastic


worms at the Monkey Box
in the big lake. Crappie, also
known as speckled perch, are
taking minnows and jigs at Bird
Island and Cochran's Pass in
the lake, too. Mr. Dannenhauer
also reports that catfishing has
been very good in the rim canal
and Caloosahatchee River.
He reminds hunters that
the first phase of duck season
is held Nov. 22-30, then there
is a pause for one week. The
second phase resumes Dec. 6
through Jan. 25.
Rhonda Perry has been ap-
pointed to the Glades County
public library advisory board.
The annual board of county
commissioners' holiday lun-
cheon is scheduled for Decem-
ber 18 at the Doyle Conner
Building.
The county commissioners
meeting of December 22 has
been cancelled.

A 23 year old inmate died
from a seizure at the Glades
County jail on June 20, an in-
vestigation into the death deter-
mined.
His death was ruled natural
by the 20th Circuit Medical Ex-
aminer.
Valery Joseph was found
face down on his cell bunk by
jail personnel at about 10 a.m.,
four hours after he was last
seen alive.


Jail officials attempted to
revive the inmate but after 40
minutes of CPR attempts he
was pronounced dead.
The investigation also found
that Joseph had a history of
seizures and that jail medical
staffers had worked to keep the
levels of Dilamtin in his system,
stable.
There were no signs of trau-
ma or injury on the inmate's
body, the report concluded.
The Medical Examiner
found that the cause of death
was a seizure disorder and


probably polymicrogyria. The
medical examiner also stated
that Mr. Joseph had previous
symptoms of psychosis, and a
prior suicide attempt.
Joseph had been taken to
Hendry Regional Medical Cen-
ter on March 22, after an appar-
ent seizure.
He was found on the floor of
the jail on March 21 and com-
plained of soreness in his neck
and drowsiness.
The autopsy toxicology re-
port found traces of several pre-
scription drugs in his system.


Yacht storage



center nears



completion


River Forest
Yachting Center is
by Ortona Locks

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
ORTONA -- River Forest
Yachting Center is nearing com-
pletion in Ortona, Glades Coun-
ty, along the Caloosahatchee
River. The boat storage build-
ings are built to withstand 140
m.p.h. wind exposure. Each
building will house 70-80 boats,
and a fire suppression sprinkler
system will be installed.
Cement will be poured
for three acres of cleated tie-
downs so other vessels can be
strapped down during storms.
According to proprietor, Joe
Charles, Florida insurers re-
quire that boat owners have a
hurricane plan.
Twenty eight clients have
reserved indoor space in the
first building, and Mr. Charles
intends to sign up more at the
Fort Myers Boat Show. The
substantial center will have a
machine shop and service area
large enough to accommodate
two 90-foot boats. The cen-
ter will be able to align shafts,
clean hulls, repair running gear,
and straighten props.
River Forest Yachting Center
is a dealer for Raymarine Elec-
tronics. They can install and re-
pair custom radios, radar, and


depth finders. The Ortona facil-
ity features DEP's clean marina
program like the first River For-
est Yachting Center that opened
earlier in Stuart.
An older house on the prop-
erty has been restored as the
Hurricane Clubhouse and can
accommodate traveling clients.
An apartment, kitchen, laundry,
showers, courtyard, and Royal
Palm entrance-way will be a re-
treat while boats are serviced.
Clients will be able to enjoy the
view of the Caloosahatchee
River from the clubhouse and
courtyard.
Three pretty neighborhoods
are located in Ortona, and a
community playground will be
completed in the near future.
A nearby convenience store
and library are a short bike ride
away on new sidewalks.
Ortona is accessible from
S.R. 78 between Moore Haven
and LaBelle. Boaters using the
Okeechobee Waterway will
find River Forest Yachting Cen-
ter near the Ortona Locks along
the north side of the Caloosa-
hatchee River. A smaller house
at the center's entrance-way off
Williams Road has also been
renovated into a restaurant
which is open to employees
and local residents.

Glades County impact fees re-considered


Public hearing set
for Nov. 24.

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- The
board of county commissioners
began the day meeting of Nov.
10 with a continuation of dis-
cussion and public hearing on
adopting and/or suspending pro-
posed impact fees.
At the previous meeting of
Oct. 27, an impact fee expert, Dr.
Nicholas, addressed the com-
missioners and audience on the


increase in costs to construction
and equipment. He commented
that road construction has had a
dominant effect on government
spending; and EMS equipment
prices are up, too.
"Petroleum products have
gone up 205 percent since 2005,"
said Mr. Nicholas.
The consultant mentioned
that the cost of building local
roads has increased 77 percent,
EMS costs are up over 30 per-
cent, and revenues are not up.
Some counties have increased
impact fees dramatically, while
others have reduced or suspend-
ed them. Either way, the different


actions that can be taken may,
or may not affect the county
considering the slowness of the
economy.
The rates proposed by Dr.
Nicholas raise the current rates
of $8,143 to $10,493 for a single-
family residence, and complies
with the requirements of the De-
partment of Community Affairs
(DCA), a state agency.
At that same meeting Oct. 27,
school board chairman, Mike
Pressley, and Moore Haven city
council member, John Ahern,
reminded county government
that their offices recommend a
reduction in proposed impact


fees.
More discussion on the topic
began again Nov. 10. Wendell
Taylor, county manager, men-
tioned to the board that they
can implement the full study of
Dr. Nicholas' increased rate pro-
posal.
"Then suspend them for one
year until Oct. 1, 2009," recom-
mended Mr. Taylor.
According to county officials,
the increased impact fees can
be re-examined on Oct. 1, 2009.
Such an action would be in com-
pliance with DCA. Richard Prin-
gle, county attorney, explained
that DCA considers impact fees


a necessity. Growth cannot be
assessed until the impact of
that growth is examined. He
mentioned that DCA sees it as a
method to pay for future impact
on a community.
Mr. Pringle suggested follow-
ing their expert consultant's rec-
ommendations, in order to sat-
isfy the state agency, even if the
board suspends Nicholas' pro-
posed impact fees until October
2009. If they choose to do other
than what Dr. Nicholas propos-
es, then they will have to further
substantiate their decision with

Glades Day loses


Moore Haven finishes
season strong with a
big win

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
BELLE GLADE Glades Day's
regular season is now completed,
but not in the way they would
have liked.
In the Gators 28-13 loss to Ju-
piter Christian, a glaring weakness
was badly exposed yet again.
The defense may have al-
lowed Clewiston's Darris Hughes
and Okeechobee's Lonnie Pryor
to rush for more than 300 yards
each on them in their early-sea-
son loses to the two teams.
But Glades Day hadn't allowed
one team to have three players
rush for more than 100 yards in
a game.
That is, until they clashed
with the defending Class IB state
champions, who are now riding a
23-game winning streak heading
into the playoffs this week.
It was expected that Eagles
fullback Will Powers would rush
for more than 100 yards against
Glades Day he finished with 22
carries for 113 yards, including
a 4-yard touchdown run in the
opening quarter.
However, it was arguably the
play of quarterback Marshyl Roth-
man that propelled Jupiter Chris-
tian to victory on Friday, Nov. 14.
The quarterback, already lim-
ited by an injury to his throwing
shoulder, threw only three pass-
es, with two completions for 23
yards.
Unfortunately for Glades Day,
one of Rothman's throws was


a 15-yard touchdown strike to
wideout Danny Meyer later in the
first half.
With the Gators down 13-0 go-
ing into halftime, they knew that
their offense would have to click
on all cylinders if it wanted to pull
off the upset win.
In short, it just didn't happen
for them, save for a third-quarter
67-yard touchdown run by eighth-
grade running back Kelvin Taylor
(11 carries for 88 yards).
Rothman rushed for two fourth
quarter touchdowns to seal Jupi-
ter Christian's win.
Rothman, who finished with
15 carries for 169 yards, scored on
a 66-yard run early in the fourth,
followed by a 1-yard score to end
the game.
Jupiter Christian tailback Aus-
tin Lewis, who ran in a 2-point
conversion after Rothman's 66-
yard touchdown, led all runners
with 19 carries for 172 yards.
In all, though Glades Day's
pass defense looked effective, the
run defense allowed a season-
high 451 yards on an astoninsh-
ing 56 carries to Jupiter Christian.
Bo Schlecter finished with
7-for-15 passing with 106 yards
and a touchdown, including a
46-yard strike to Alex Mann in the
fourth quarter.
Jupiter Christian, the state's
unaminous No. 1 team in Class
IB, according to the latest and fi-
nal Associated Press High School
poll, finished the regular season
with a 10-0 record and is expect-
ed to repeat as state champions
next month.
Glades Day, who began the
season as the AP's No. 1 team in
Class 1A, received no votes in the
season's final poll as they head


; regular-season

into the Class 1A playoffs with a yard kickoff return by Blackmon,

Moore Haven 58, Central
Fla. Christian Orlando 20:
The Terriers enjoyed their
three-hour bus ride home from
Orlando on Nov. 14 after pulling
off an impressive season-ending
victory.
Though Moore Haven's young
defense allowed 20 first-half
points to the Eagles, the offense
came back to life, scoring 46 first-
half points of their own.
Dalton Britt (7-for-17 passing,
181 yards, 4 TDs) threw for three
touchdowns in the first half, in-
cluding an opening 32-yard strike
to wideout Elazarus Blackmon,
his only catch of the game.
After Central Fla. Christian
quarterback Luke Brigham threw
for a 16-yard touchdown to Dar-
ius Lis to put the Eagles ahead,
8-7, in the opening quarter, the
Terriers scored three consecutive
touchdowns.
Those scores included a 77-


Okeechobee manhandles Tigers EtSATE


Luckily, it was a contest that
really meant nothing more than
bragging rights between the op-
posite ends of Lake Okeechobee
and a featured match up of two
of the best running backs in Flor-
ida. The Brahmans and Tigers
both had already secured playoff
berths. Both teams were hoping
to finish the regular season 8-2,
for the Tigers it was a record that
most local supporters thought
unimaginable at the outset of the
year. In the end, Clewiston fin-
ished with a highly respectable
7-3 record, a perfect 4-0 in dis-
trict play, with losses against top
ranked Glades Central, Plantation
American Heritage and the Class
4A Brahmans.
Okeechobee took the opening
kickoff and marched 67 yards on 8
snaps to go on top when quarter-
back Garrett Madrigal hit speedy
wideout Mike Minando with a 24-
yard pass. The Tigers came roar-
ing right back with a clock-eating
12 play drive covering 80 yards.
Senior tailback Darris Hughes
scampered the final 13 yards on
a sweep with two minutes left in
the quarter. The biggest play on
the drive was a pass from Isandro
Marquez to fullback Joey Cor-
dova in the flats that got turned
up field for an impressive 22-yard
gain with several Brahmans taken
along for the ride. The long drive
and keeping the ball out of the
hands of the Brahmans' offense
might have been a strategy for a
chance to win the game. Unfor-
tunately, the rest of the night was
largely made up of short offensive
drives by the Tigers and no ability
to control the ball.
The Tiger defense played the
first half with all of their heart.
Just when it appeared that they
would head to intermission with a
7-7 game, Brahmans star tailback
Lonnie Pryor caught a Madrigal
swing pass and avoided tacklers
to score from 21 yards out with
only 23 seconds remaining.
The second half offered some
early opportunities for the Tiger of-
fense. They recovered an onside
kickoff at midfield to begin the
half but went three and out. The

Brahmans then moved 80 yards
and scored on a two-yard dive
by Pryor. Tiger Damion Smith
returned the ensuing kickoff 46
yards to the Brahman 49. On
third down, Okeechobee picked
off an errant Marquez pass. It was
the first of four interceptions by
the Brahmans during the second
half.
Clewiston finally got a drive
going in the final period when
defensive back John Williams
picked off a Madrigal pass and
returned it 12 yards to the Tiger
47. Marquez got hot and hooked
up on passes to Jamarcus Smith
for 17, Damarian Allen for 11 and
and Damion Smith 7. Jamarcus
Smith also chipped in with a 12-
yard run. Hughes got the final 5
yards with 7:59 left in the game.
But it was too little and too late
for Clewiston. Their defense was
worn out from the clock control-
ling Brahmans' offense and just
ran out of gas.
Defensively, Leonard Newton
made 10 solo tackles and had 2
assists from his linebacker posi-
tion. Defensive tackle LaMarcus
Thicklin also had a solid night
with 8 tackles and 2 assists.
In the battle of the great run-
ning backs, Tiger Darris Hughes
more than held his own with 148
yards on 18 carries and some
hard, tackle busting efforts. Pryor
had 185 yards on 26 runs and 45
of those came late in the game
against an exhausted Tiger de-
fense. Hughes finished the year
with 1,797 yards rushing, far
eclipsing Thomas Washington's
1,527 yards in 1990. From a ca-
reer perspective, Hughes ended
with 3,009 yards rushing on 379
rushes. That places him as the
second best all time rusher be-
hind Washington's 3,753 yards on
533 carries. Hughes average per
carry of 9.1 yards was the highest
ever for a Tiger, bettering Kelvin
Robinson's 8.0 average during the
1992 season.
The Tigers will host Mulberry
this Friday in the first round of the
Class 2A regional playoffs. Mul-
berry was runner-up to Tampa
Catholic in District 2A-5. The Pan-


others were 7-4 in the regular sea-
son and most of their losses were
against good teams and by close
scores. The winner of this contest
will likely travel to face Tampa
Catholic the following week.

Good medicine for the soul


Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
"A cheerful heart is good medi-
cine, but a crushed spirit dries up
the bones" (Proverbs 17:22).
Science has finally caught up
with these words in the Bible that
King Solomon wrote some 3,000
plus years ago.
Laughter is good for our health
and now scientists know why.
Researchers at the University
of Maryland found that when 20
healthy volunteers smiled and
laughed while watching a com-
edy, their blood flow increased
by 22 percent, about the same
increase caused by aerobic exer-
cise.
But when volunteers watched
tension-filled scenes, their blood
flow decreased 35 percent.
The researchers stated that
laughing apparently causes the
endothelium, the tissue that lines
blood vessels, to expand, which
increases blood flow.
Laughter may also improve
arterial health by reducing men-
tal stress, which constricts vessels
and cuts blood flow.


A suggested healthy lifestyle
would include 30 minutes of ex-
ercise three times a week, and 15
minutes of hearty laughter each
day.
If we would live by the princi-
ples God gives us, we would not
only live healthier and happier
lives, but our relationships would
improve exponentially.
We can't improve on God's
plan.
The wisest thing is to get in on
it.
We can be blessed if we don't
take life so seriously that we miss
out on laughing often.
It's good medicine for the
body and the soul. In that spirit,
let me share with you some "holy
humor".
1. Two pastors were standing
by the side of the road, admiring
their brand new sign that read,
"The End Is Near! Turn Around
Now --Before It's Too Late!"
A car speeds past, the driver
yelling, "Leave us alone, you re-
ligious nuts!"
Seconds later they heard from
around the curve ahead screech-


ing tires, screams, a big splash,
and then silence.
One pastor turns to the other,
"Jim, don't you think we should
have just said, "Bridge Out"?
2. The minister was preoccu-
pied with thoughts of how he was
going to ask the congregation to
come up with more money than
they were expecting for repairs to
the church building.
To make matters worse, on the
day he was going to approach the
congregation, the regular organ-
ist was sick, and a substitute was
brought in at the last minute.
The substitute wanted to know
what to play.
"Here's a copy of the service,"
the minister replied, "But you'll
have to think of something to play
after I make the announcement
about the finances."
During the service, the min-
ister paused and said, "Brothers
and Sisters, we are in great diffi-
culty.
The roof repairs cost twice as
much as we expected, and we
need $4,000 more.
Any of you who can pledge


$100 or more, please stand up."
At that moment, the substitute
organist played "The Star Span-
gled Banner."
And that is how the substitute
became the regular organist!
3. A minister waited in line to
have his car filled with gas just be-
fore a long holiday weekend.
The attendant worked quickly,
but there were many cars ahead
of him in front of the service sta-
tion.
Finally, the attendant motioned
him toward a vacant pump.
"Reverend," said the young
man, "sorry about the delay. It
seems as if everyone waits until
the last minute to get ready for a
long trip."
The minister smiled, "I know
what you mean. It's the same in
my business."
I close with this note from
Ralph, age 11: "Dear Pastor, I
liked your sermon on Sunday. Es-
pecially when it was finished."


The concept of Thanksgiving!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
Perhaps we should rethink the
term "Thanksgiving Day."
Thanksgiving was never meant
to be shut up in a single day.
But that is what we have done
with Thanksgiving.
Perhaps we should set aside
one day for grumbling call it
"Grumbling Day" and then
live the other 364 days in a truly
thankful manner!
I don't think the Lord wants
any pompous proclamation of
thanks on one Thursday in No-
vember as much as He wants a
little humble service freom us ev-
ery day in the year.
In the Charles Schultz cartoon
strip "Peanuts" there is a little
character called "Pigpen."
You can barely see him for
the cloud of dust that always sur-
rounds him.
Pigpen is rarely clean.
He who is rarely clean is not a
clean person and he who is rarely


thankful is not a thankful person.
I like what Cicero once said:
'A thankful heart is not only the
greatest virtue, but the parent of
all other virtues."
It is not the happy people who
are thankful; it is the thankful
people who are happy.
Happiness and gratitude can-
not be separated.
Over an over again the Bible
admonishes us to be thankful to
God.
"Enter into His gates with
thanksgiving, and into His courts
with praise. Be thankful to Him,
and bless His name. For the Lord
is good; His mercy is everlasting,
and His truth endures to all gen-
erations" (Psalm 100:4-5).
'And let the peace of God rule
in your hearts, to which also you
were called in one body; and be
thankful" (Colossians 3:15).
Christiana Georgina Rossetti
wrote, "Were there no God, we
would be in this glorious world
with grateful hearts, and not one
to thank."


The fact that a man is thankful
implies that there must be Some-
one to be thankful to.
To whom does an athiest or a
skeptic give thanks?
Peace is seeing a sunset and
knowing Who to thank!
We should all express our
thanks to God for the things we
take for granted.
Be thankful for your mind with
which to think, reason and dis-
cern.
Be thankful for your eyes with
which you can see, observe, read
and enjoy.
Be thankful for your ears with
which you can hear and listen to
such wonderful things as a baby's
gurgle, a child's laugh, the sound
of the wind in the trees, the rush
of a waterfall, the song of a bird.
Be thankful for your nose with
which you can enjoy the wonder-
ful aroma of pumpkin pie, hot cof-
fee, apple blossoms in the spring,
burning leaves in the Fall.
Be thankful for your mouth
with which you can kiss those


whom you love.
Be thankful for your tongue
with which you can speak to oth-
ers and share your joys and sor-
rows.
Be thankful for your hands
with which you can touch, feel,
squeeze, hold, heal and write
needed cards and letters of en-
couragement.
Be thankful for you feet with
which you can skip, run, walk,
and go into the house of the Lord,
as well as into the homes of those
who need your love and care.
Most of all, be thankful for
your heart and spirit with which
you can love God with all your
being, and love your neighbor as
yourself.
Let us be thankful for the
"little" things in life which, when
reflected upon, are really the big-
gest blessings we have.
"Bless the Lord, 0 my soul,
and forget not all His benefits"
(Psalm 103:2).
Let us not commit the sin of
ingratitude.

'God Don't Make No Junk'


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Gallstones will get your atten-
tion! Anybody who has had them
can tell you they will captivate all
of your energies and cause a re-
direction of life until they are re-
moved.
I remember the occasion when
my gallstones and I parted com-
pany. I could go back to a normal
life; not worrying about the next
attack or what I couldn't eat or if
I'd be interrupted in the middle
of something and double over in
pain. Shortly after the operation,
I was told to get out of bed and
stand next to it. My first instinct
was that "all my insides are go-
ing to fall out." I was assured they
wouldn't and that I'd be fine.
I was fine, in fact, and little by
little came to realize that every-
thing was returning to its' rightful
place, less the stones. The inci-
sions were healing, the need for
medications was diminishing, my
being seemed to know what to
do without any further interven-
tions or directions on my part.
I reflected on the words of
the Psalmist, "Behold, thou art
fearfully and wonderfully made
(Psalm 139:13)" and how many
forces were involved to restore
me to a fuller, more active life.
Somehow, some way the body
knew how to heal itself: some-
how the revelation and healing


arts that have been given to hu-
manity are able to work together
with God's building within us our
own instincts and capacities for
getting well.
It seems that each night as I
watch the news, a new treatment
or new discovery or breakthrough
is announced. This occurs not
only in the realm of the physical
self, but also in our mental and
spiritual selves too.
Studies have shown that
people tend to forget over time
"bad" things that have happened
to them; memories are forgot-
ten and things that once plagued
us or kept us from feeling good
about ourselves are given another
perspective. We heal our minds
as well as our bodies; worries
fade away in time and many of
the things people worry about
never come to pass anyway.
People heal themselves spiri-
tually; that also seems to be built
into us if we accept God's forgive-
ness or come to atone, or rec-
oncile, our differences. Spiritual
healing takes place and living be-
comes full of joy once more.
I can think of times when per-
sons have shared a "deep, dark
secret" and then a great burden
was lifted from them. There are
times when it takes reassurance
that we are not intended to go
on punishing ourselves or feeling
bad about ourselves; God does
not intend it to be that way and


always provides the means to re-
turn to a whole being.
Psalm 139 reminds us that the
Lord "has searched me out and
known me" (v.1) and that He is
always with us, that God has knit
us together from the beginning
(v.12) and that we unfold in our
growing as God has intended.
The Psalmist reflects on the
wonder of all of God's creating us
and then asks God to continue to
perfect him, knowing that his cre-
ation points to a greater creation
one day with God in Heaven and
with everlasting life. That is the fi-
nal perfection; as we see parts of
it here and realize what God does
in us and for us.
Perfection? We're not there
yet; but we get closer and closer
with each passing day.
One person put it very suc-
cinctly when she said "God don't
make no junk!" and she had it
right. The Psalmist saw it too
many years before.
Every now and again, I stop to
think about healing and the pow-
ers within and without that keep
us going. We are truly "fearfully
and wonderfully made."
God certainly doesn't make
any junk; He makes us well from
the beginning and gives us the
means to make us well ever af-
terwards, and long into eternity.
Well made; no junk but look at
the Master who crafted us!

Letters to the Editor


Glades County
Woman's Club
Can you believe it is November
already? Glades County Woman's
Club has gone from monotasking
to multitasking just to fit in all that
they have planned to do in the
next three months. Thanksgiving
means no gifts to buy, no pack-
ages to wrap and it's all about
being thankful. And food, it's
especially about food. However,
there are deserving families in
Glades County who may not have
much food unless they get a little
boost from our community. The
Woman's Club is gathering non-
perishables to fill a Thanksgiving
basket, and will include a gift cer-
tificate so the family can purchase
a turkey or ham to complete their
Thanksgiving dinner. And when
you give thanks, remember the
families who have an empty
place at their table this year. And
also give thanks for our service-
men and women who would like
to spend the holidays with their
families but are doing their job
keeping us safe so that we can
celebrate however we wish!
Diane Tillery reported that the
elementary school has asked her
to express their appreciation for
underwear that GCWC donated
for the child who just "might not
make it", and needs a change. We
also donated belts for the kid who
forgot theirs, and doesn't want to
have to wear a "rope belt".
Woman's Club plans to have
a kid's game, and sell pulled pork
sandwiches at "Christmas on the
Caloosahatchee". This fun festi-
val is the same night as our De-
cember meeting, which is also
the Club's Christmas Party, so
the party has been moved back a
week to December 4th. Carol But-
ler and Kacie Swaford are busy
finalizing plans and the time and
place will be announced a little
later. However, a Chinese Auction
is planned for the party. This will
include re-gifting, but if you have
already "regifted" all your gifts,
no more than $5.00 is to be spent
for a gift, and it cannot be candy-
-dieters and diabetes people can't
have it. So, watch the yard sales,
dollar and thrift stores for a gift
that you pay no more than $5.00
for. Husbands and significant oth-
ers are invited. Be sure to include
a gift for them too.
Maxine Roundtree and Chris
Holliday are working on plans for
the club's barbecue fundraiser
and they tell us it will probably be
held in February. Watch for post-
ers for time and place.
All these fundraisers are to
raise money for scholarships for
graduating seniors. GCWC also
supports Mainstreet Moore Haven
with a donation. So you can un-
derstand why our calendars are
so full at this time of the year!

Keep America's
dreams alive
I have a sad story to tell you
about a sweet dream that have
come to an end. Dreams are our
hope to secure our country's fu-
ture. America gives an equal op-
portunity to her citizens to devel-


op their ideas for prosperity, and
create jobs and wealth for her
people. My heart sunk and I cried
when Marlene Kouba forwarded
the news about shutting down
sugar cane operation in Clewis-
ton, Florida. Clewiston is a small
town like my own town of Powell
and it was developed 80 years ago
when the country was experienc-
ing economic depression.
Clewiston is called America's
sweetest town it was born and
built by sugar industry. This town
is the heartland of the Florida
Everglades. The town is located
near bottom center of the Florida
state surrounded by rich black
soil known as muck that would
become its wealth. In 1931 indus-
trialist Charles Mott transferred
Clewiston and the small Southern
Sugar Co into U.S. sugar. In past
80 years since time of depression
this little sugar Co has been grow-
ing and providing jobs and eco-
nomic prosperity for the State of
Florida.. U.S. sugar has been one
of the largest sugar cane co in the
United State providing over 1700
jobs and processing 800,000 tons
of sugar a year.
The corporation is planning
to sell 300 square miles around
Clewiston to the state, which is
part of the plan to clean the Ev-
erglades. Two sugarcane refin-
eries are located in Clewiston
(owned by U.S. Sugar Corpora-
tion) and South Bay (Okeelanta
Corp.). Florida has six mills: two
are located in Belle Glade, one in
Clewiston, one in South Bay, and
two in Pahokee. $2,004,300,000
is generated in the state of Florida
each year by the production of
sugar and corn sweetener prod-
ucts.
Bear in mind that the shrink-
ing profit margins have lead to
the closer of 53 sugar beet and
cane facilities since 1985. Every
one of these old sugar cane and
beet facilities were build by early
industrialists whom had a dream
for America.
Their dream has been profit-
able for example sugar indus-
try contributes over $10 billion
dollars annually to our nation's
economy. Sugar producers have
been operating their farms with
not much of increase in their cost
of- living for past two decades.
According to the Bureau of La-
bor Statistic for sugar producers,
the cost of production has not
remained static like their loan
rate. Fuel costs have skyrocketed
by 177 percent, wages are up
99 percent, and equipment and
chemical cost have soared by 64
percent. Thank God that there is a
good news for U.S. sugar farmers
in the new 2007 Farm Bill, which
it was passed and signed to off-
set a fraction of sugar producer's
higher costs of production and
shrinking profit margins. The
Farm Bill has increased the loan
rates on raw sugar by five -tenths
of one penny per pound, which
will be an increase of 2.7 percent.
Agriculture has united behind the
strong 2007 farm bill to make our
nation food supply more secure.
As our nation's sugar cane and
beets were being harvested this
year the crops looked good and
every one were happy but sugar


General News and Information


Plan now for
November Lake walk
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.

Free bread provided
Free Bread provided by the
fine folks at the New Hope
Baptist Church located at 1050
Yaun Road in Moore Haven.
This will be every Tuesday from
4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. and every Sat-
urday from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. or
when the bread is gone. Hard to
believe, but the bread is free!


farmers got the worst news. De-
spite increasing input cost the
sugar price plunged down. Market
analysts attribute this price free
fall to an August decision by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture to
import additional subsidized for-
eign sugar, a move that the sugar
industry called "premature" at
that time.
In Auguest at the 25th Inter-
national Sweetener Symposium
under Secretary Mark Keenum
announced that the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture would allow
an additional 300,000 tons of re-
fined sugar imports onto the U.S.
market for FY 2008. Sugar produc-
ers felt this action was premature,
and the American Sugar Alliance
issued the following statement:
"We are unaware of any sugar
buyer in this country who is hav-
ing trouble finding sugar. And,
while sugar prices have rebound-
ed in the past couple of months,
they are still far below price in-
creases for other commodities.
The USDA's actions today cast a
cloud over a sugar industry that
has been dealing with depressed
prices and soaring input costs for
some time.
Nobody listen to sugar asso-
ciations worming and earlier this
month, the USDA changed its


estimates and is now forecasting
200,000 tons of additional beets
sugar on the market. Many in the
industry expect these numbers to
grow even more as sugar beets
are harvested in the Midwest and
Louisiana finishes just its season.
Early industrialists saw the
great opportunities to build in-
dustries like sugar cane and beet
facilities to grow food and provide
jobs for small towns. One can see
the result of such a dream in our
present economic and food sup-
ply security. Sweet dream that
has provided 372,000 direct and
indirect jobs in 42 states and con-
tributes $21.1 billion in positive
economic activity in America.
As citizens of this great nation
we have to make our lawmak-
ers work for our consumers the
subsidized sugar imported to this
country will not be cheap once
we lose our sugar industries. As
American it is our duty to keep
our country land of dreams come
true for our next generation.

BELLE GLADE Susie Lee
(Burch) Durant, joined our Lord and
Savior on Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2008. She
was 86.
Sue was born Susie Lee Pitts on
Sept. 27, 1922, in the community of
Thigpin, Ga. She was raised in North
Florida and moved to Belle Glade in
1952 with her two sons, George and
Roy Burch.
Known for her great cooking
ability throughout the town of Belle
Glade, Sue was employed by the
Dixiana Restaurant. At the highlight
of her career she was asked to man-
age the restaurant. The customers
were so upset that she was no long-
er cooking the food that the owners
were forced to put her back in the
kitchen.
Her tremendous cooking ability is
what led Sue to the love of her life, a
customer named Bob Durant. They
were married June 26, 1965. Bob
preceded her in death and they are
now in each others arms in heaven.
Sue will be greatly missed by her
loving children, George (Bebe)
Burch, Roy (Susan) Burch, Debbie
O'Neill, and Don Durant; her seven
grandchildren; and ten great-grand-
children. Her surviving siblings in-
clude three sisters and three
brothers.


Podcasts from the Internet: Most are free!


By Diane Timmons
Okeechobee News
First, I want to say this col-
umn is not just for the tech savvy.
Please read it through and then
decide if it's worth it to find pod-
casts on your computer.
We are going to explore the
concept of the podcast today. A
podcast is a downloadable radio-
style show, organized by show
and episodes within shows. But, I
like this definition better "Person-
al On Demand broadCASTING"
or PODCAST.
Okay, personal on demand
broadcasting. What can we do
with that?
As it turns out, there are many
things we can learn from pod-
casts. I have found podcasts to be
the most eye-opening, fun, and
educational media that are on the
Internet today.
Turns out I have been listening
to podcasts since about 2005 and
didn't even know it. CBS, the TV
station, was doing podcasts about
its TV show Big Brother. I would
listen with my computer, using
Windows Media Player, to sev-
eral people commenting about
the show. And there is no need
to own an iPod or portable MP3
player. Just because your grand-
kids all carry them, doesn't mean
you need to own one to listen to
podcasts.
While doing a little research
for today's column, I found out
that podcasts were introduced in
about 2001, but didn't really get
going until 2003. That's relatively
new to my way of thinking.
Mypodcastworld reallyopened
up when I discovered iTunes. Do
you like to knit or are you into
crafts? Would you like to listen to
your favorite programs anytime?
The iTunes store has over 100,000


Photo/iTunes
Programs such as Apple's iTunes offer a wide variety of
downloadable content. You can choose to listen to a podcast
about gardening, or exercising, or even traveling and gour-
met eating -- there are few subjects that are not broached.


podcast episodes available from
tons of independent creators
and also from big names such as
HBO, ESPN and The New York
Times. Today, anyone can down-
load the software and start roam-
ing iTunes for its rich content. Let
me add one more thing that is
important to seniors and anyone
that needs to be frugal with their
money. I rarely spend any money
on iTunes. That's right, most pod-
casts are absolutely free!
iTunes
Start out by putting www.
itunes.com in the address line of
your browser. You will be trans-
ferred to an Apple site that seems
to be all about music and the iPod
music device. Don't let that throw
you off track. Download and in-
stall the software so you can get
to Apple's storefront when you
double click the software icon.
The icon will be added to your
desktop during the installation.

It's that time of year when the
turkey isn't the only thing getting
stuffed.
Many people stuff themselves
with lots of good food around the
holidays!
Please remember food safety
when preparing your holiday
meal.
It doesn't matter if you've
cooked many turkeys, or if this
year might be your first, you still
need to remember food safety
when you thaw, prepare, and
cook your holiday bird.

You need to be online when you
open the software.
On the left of your screen, you
will see the classifications
-Library (this shows what is
on your own hard drive on your
computer)
-iTunes Store (this is the one
you want to select)
-Playlists (this is where you can
classify the items you download)
The iTunes store is pretty easy
to navigate and since this column
is all about podcasts, that's what
I'm going to focus on.
1. Click on iTunes Store. You
will see the screen is divided into
panels.
2. Click on podcasts. You will
find it listed under the iTunes
STORE panel on the left side of
the screen.
3.All of the panels on the
screen are now all about pod-
casts. You will find a list of the top
podcasts that have been down-


loaded. Or, categories of podcasts
such as the arts or hobbies. There
are podcasts that discuss books,
sports, TV shows and movies.
The list goes on.
4. Click on a category such
as Fantasy Football (or any that
interest you). The top half of the
screen usually shows the subject
of the podcasts that are then listed
on the bottom half of the screen.
The items are listed by subject,
such as Preseason update, and
the date it was recorded and you
may see the duration of the pod-
cast.
5. Download. Over to the
far right click on Get Episode to
download that podcast. If the
podcast is free it will clearly state
free.
6. It won't seem like much is
happening, but over to the left
of your screen, next to the word
Downloads, a little icon is spin-
ning that indicates the download
is taking place. You can click the
word downloads and it shows the
progress of the download.
7. Where do you find the pod-
cast you just downloaded? On
the left of your screen, under the
word LIBRARY, click on podcasts.
This will reveal the podcast you
just downloaded. If you down-
load a number of podcasts, they
will list alphabetically.
8. Listening to the podcast. Be-
cause Apple has included a player
with the software, all you need do
is double click the podcast name
and it will begin to play. In this
case the Fantasy Football pod-
cast.
9. Notice the word Subscribe
near the title of the podcast you
just downloaded. This capability
is what makes podcasting spe-
cial. You can use it or not depend-
ing on your needs. To subscribe
to the podcast means that when


a new or updated podcast be-
comes available in that series, it
will show on your list. Click the

intestinal tract.
Salmonella typically lives in the
intestines of animals and humans
and exit the body through feces.
Humans become infected
most frequently through contami-
nated food sources, such as poul-
try, meat and eggs.
Typically, people with salmo-
nella infection develop diarrhea,
fever and abdominal cramps
within 12 to 72 hours.
So to make sure Salmonella
isn't an un-invited guest at your
holiday meal, take a few mo-
ments to review some food safety
tips:
Your first thought should be
how to thaw out your turkey
safely.
Give yourself plenty of time to
leave your turkey in the refrigera-
tor until it's fully thawed.
Do not leave your turkey in the
sink overnight!

Temperatures between 40*
and 140*Fahrenheit is considered
the "danger zone" because food
borne bacteria can multiply rapid-
ly within this temperature range.
Bacteria can be present on
raw turkey and chicken, which
can contaminate your hands,
countertops, and sinks.
Remember to wash your
hands and any surfaces that your
raw turkey has come into contact
with.
It's safer to cook your stuff-
ing in a separate dish rather than
inside the turkey, but if you are
preparing the "traditional" stuffed
turkey, rinse the inside of the tur-
key thoroughly with clean water.
Stuff the turkey just before you
are ready to put it in the oven.
Use a food thermometer to
make sure the center of the stuff-

All fun and games
Children playing games and showing off their game cards
at one of the game booths at the New Hope Fall Festival
held on Nov. 8, at Chalo Nitka Park.


By Jon Geitner
Senior Vice President,
Seacoast National Bank
For the last several months
rarely a day goes by that we
aren't exposed to some distress-
ing news concerning the condi-
tion of our financial institutions
and their inability to meet the
lending needs of the communi-
ties they serve.
The truth of the matter is
many of them strayed from
prudent lending practices un-
der pressure to produce higher
earnings in a very competitive
marketplace.
In some rare instances banks
totally ignored basic rules of the
credit game in order to improve
both their bottom line and mar-
ket share.
Is there a shortage of money
to lend in small town America?
The short answer is "No."
There is an ample supply of
funding available to meet all
types of credit needs, including
home mortgages, consumer
loans, and commercial loans.
However, as a result of the
problems currently being expe-
rienced by many banks, the un-
derwriting criteria used by lend-
ers is being subjected to higher
levels of scrutiny.
Another way of looking at the
situation is by comparing our
present circumstances to the
old adage describing the swing
of the pendulum.
In the last several years deci-
sion makers might "stretch" or


entirely ignore one or more of
the 5 "C's" of credit underwrit-
ing, without a significant miti-
gating circumstance.
As more loans continue
to default, lenders have been
forced to revisit their credit re-
view process swinging the pen-
dulum back to a more conserva-
tive approval process.
The underwriting process re-
mains the same, but banks are
much less likely to make an ex-
ception to one of the judgment
criteria, and, if they do, there
must be a strong offsetting fac-
tor in one of the remaining prin-
ciples.
As a result there has been the
appearance of a "tightening" of
credit when, in reality, there is
sufficient money.
Over the next couple of
weeks I will be writing a series
of articles to help the reader un-
derstand how a bank looks at a
request for credit and the factors
we consider in coming to our
decision.
Although competing banks
differ in many ways we all fol-
low basic underwriting stan-
dards built around the 5 "C's" of
credit.
These are Character, Collater-
al, Capacity, Capital, and Credit.
When sensible deliberation
is applied to the combination of
these five factors the outcome
should be a loan that can be
reasonably managed by the bor-
rower and a safe investment for
the bank.


Fun for everyone
The New Hope Baptist Church booth was located at the
entrance to the Veteran's Fall Festival held on Nov. 8. The
event was hosted by the church and included booths with
local information, foods, games and fun.

Glades County Historical Society.
What better way to herald the
Christmas season than to pres-
ent the nearly restored historical
Pieter Westergaard House to our
community with a Christmas
Open House? GCHS members
are painting and decorating this
wonderful Bungalow-style house
for this first celebration that will
include refreshments, a tour and
kudos to all who helped and do-
nated to this worthy cause.
Framed in cedar shakes and
Dade pine, the house will be the
headquarters of the GCHS and a
meeting place for local organiza-
tions. A small museum will be
added in the near future. Glades
County Garden Club members
will help with the beautification
program by planting native flow-
ers and shrubs.
Larry Lucky, property apprais-
er, has supervised much of this


project including filling in under
the house and leveling the lawn.
Thanks to him and a fine con-
tractor, Clyde Johnson, there is a
wheelchair ramp attached to the
rear of the building. Jim Gerow
and Marge Revoy cleaned the win-
dows that are made of the origi-
nal glass, bumps, bubbles and all.
Members speculated about how
long it had been since those win-
dows were washed. GCHS trea-
surer, Al Schauseil, computer wiz,
created flyers, brochures, newslet-
ters, reports and many other bul-
letins that kept the society going.
He and members sat at meetings
and wringing their hands many
times wondering how in the
world they got adequate funding
for the project. Donald Miles and
Julie Wigton of Lakeport and Dick
Holey of Clewiston repaired and
hung the mantel over the brick
fireplace. "It was tested on a cool
morning and works just fine. We
could use some firewood," said


Ms. Wigton. Neighbor Pete Gou-
veia provided water and moral
support throughout the project as
did Mary McMurty, who let mem-
bers plug 200 feet of extension
cords in her house for lighting up
their meetings. June Morningstar
provided sustenance for all with
her raisin bread cream cheese
sandwiches. City and county gov-
ernmental offices were always
helpful, cheerful and cooperated
in every way. A plaque will even-
tually be hung inside the building
giving everyone of these generous
folks credit for their efforts. "We
could be somewhat greedy and
hope that folks who live in simi-
lar houses will one day consider
restoring theirs, at least the exte-
rior" said Anne Coffey, President.
"Tax breaks are available." GCHS
Christmas Open House is located
at 270 Ave. L, in Moore Haven.

Drug use is down overall among teens, survey says


TALLAHASSEE-Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp announced signifi-
cant reductions in cigarette smok-
ing and binge drinking among
Florida's middle school and high
school students since 2000, as re-
ported by the 2008 Florida Youth
Substance Abuse Survey.
In contrast to the significant
reductions being made each year,
the 2008 survey confirms the con-
tinuing trend of prescription drug
abuse and highlights the need for
future prevention efforts.
The Florida Office of Drug
Control, state agencies, law en-
forcement, substance abuse pre-
vention coalitions, schools and
community stakeholders have
partnered to reduce substance
abuse across the state.
"Children are Florida's most
vulnerable residents, and pro-
tecting them from the dangers of
substance abuse is tremendously
important," said Lt. Governor
Kottkamp.
"Drug abuse threatens the
health and safety of our children


and their families. The survey is
vital to understanding how to pre-
vent drug use."
According to the survey, which
has been administered every year
since 2000, drug use among
Florida's middle and high school
students is down in 10 of 11 areas
consistently measured over the
history of the survey.
From 2007 to 2008, among
middle and high school students,
past 30-day use of alcohol and
binge drinking declined signifi-
cantly.
Long-term trends documented
from 2000 to 2008 include:
Cigarette smoking is cut in
half: The past 30-day use of ciga-
rettes among middle and high
schoolers is at 9 percent, down
from 18 percent in 2000.
Binge drinking declines by
4 percentage points since 2000:
Binge drinking, defined as hav-
ing five or more drinks in a row
sometime during the previous
two weeks, currently stands at 15
percent, down from 19 percent in


2000.
Use of any illegal drug other
than marijuana continues to de-
cline: The percent of students
who report using any illegal drug
other than marijuana has de-
clined by 24 percent since 2000
and now stands at a historically
low 6.6 percent.
Early initiation continues
to decline: Research confirms
that if our youth make it to adult-
hood without experimenting with
drugs, they are far less likely to
start using later in life. The 2008
survey documents an important
decline in the percentage of high
school students who first used al-
cohol (by 8.6 percentage points),
tobacco (by 19.5 percentage
points), and marijuana (by 6.7
percentage points) before the age
of 14.
New question on over-
the-counter drugs: For the first
time, middle schoolers were
asked about their use of over-the-
counter drugs such as cold and
cough medications in order to


get high. The lifetime prevalence
rate of over-the-counter drug
abuse (4.9 percent) is higher than
the rate for any illegal drug except
marijuana.
Prescription drugs emerging
as a dangerous source of abuse:
4.5 percent of high school seniors
report abusing prescription pain
relievers in the past 30 days, and
3.8 percent report abusing pre-
scription depressants more than
any other illegal drug (excluding
marijuana). Results from the 2002
survey (the first time this question
was asked) were nearly identical,
indicating a continuing trend in
prescription drug abuse.
"The 2008 report suggests ma-
jor progress in reducing under-
age drinking," said Office of Drug
Control Director Bill Janes.
"Prevalence rates for the vast
majority of drugs monitored by
the FYSAS have been significantly
reduced over the past eight years.
This is a testament to the tremen-
dous progress the state has made
toward enhancing the preven-


tion infrastructure in the areas of
assessment, strategic planning,
and implementation of evidence-
based programs and policies. Our
communities are making a real
difference."
"While drug use is down over-
all, parents need to be acutely
alert to the dangers posed by le-
gally accessible substance like
inhalants, alcohol, prescription
drugs, and over-the-counter med-
ications. Parents need to do their
part to keep young people safe by
restricting the availability of these
substances within their homes
and by closely monitoring their
children's activities," Janes said.
Florida's Drug Control Strat-
egy acknowledges that there is
no one-size-fits-all approach to
ensuring that children, families,
and communities are healthy and
safe.
Florida's diverse communities
must prioritize their needs and
select the most effective strategies
that will be used to tackle their
unique profile of substance abuse


problems.
The continued support of com-
munity anti-drug coalitions is vital
to prevention efforts throughout
the state.
In addition, the dramatic prog-
ress the state has made in reduc-
ing youth alcohol, tobacco, and
other drug use is a result of the
ongoing expansion of our com-
munity-based efforts and the sup-
port of state agencies.
Florida's youth survey mea-
sures youth substance use annu-
ally across the state, and in alter-
nate years, in each county.
The 2008 edition included
91,471 valid returns from sixth
through 12th graders in 66 of
Florida 's 67 counties. (Sarasota
County is not included among
the counties surveyed because it
chose to administer an internal
survey that is not comparable
to the Florida Youth Substance
Abuse Survey.)

Take November to
recognize American
Diabetes Month

By Brenda Barnes

November is recognized as
American Diabetes Month.
Diabetes is a disease where
the body doesn't produce insulin
or when your body doesn't use
insulin properly.
Insulin is a hormone that your


body needs to convert sugar,
starches and other foods into en-
ergy, and of course we all need
energy for our daily lives!
Over 24 million people in the
U.S. have diabetes.
Each year over 193,000 people
die from diabetes and its compli-
cations.
There are two different kinds
of diabetes.
Type-1 diabetes is when the
body fails to produce insulin.
People with this type have to
get daily shots of insulin to sur-


Type-2 diabetes is when the
body fails to make enough insulin
or properly use insulin.
About 90% to 95% of all di-
agnosed cases of diabetes are
Type-2 diabetes.
Typically Type-2 diabetes de-
velops after the age of 45.
Some of the signs of diabetes
can include excessive thirst, ex-
treme hunger, unusual weight
loss, increased tiredness, in-
creased irritability and blurry vi-
sion. Sometimes family history


plays a part in whether a person
develops diabetes, but other fac-
tors such as being over weight or
lack of exercise appear to play a
role as well.
Also, African Americans, His-
panics and Native Americans are
at a higher risk of diabetes.
When a person has diabetes,
they also have an increased risk
of heart attack, stroke, kidney dis-
ease, or blindness.
There is no known cure for
diabetes, but there is treatment.
Diet, exercise and new medi-


cines can prevent or delay much
of the illness and complications
of diabetes. Did you know that
there is also something known as
pre-diabetes?
Pre-diabetes is a blood glucose
level higher than normal, but not
high enough to be diagnosed as
diabetes.
Ask your doctor about getting
tested. If your number is between
110-125, then you are in the pre-
diabetes range.
Keep in mind that a 5-10% re-
duction in body weight produces


a 58% reduction in diabetes.
Take action now! Get at least
30 minutes of physical activity ev-
ery day.
Dance, walk the dog, play with
your kids!
Eat healthier. Learn serving
sizes.
Do as your mom told you, eat
your vegetables! Get tested!

mation Officer and Planning Consul-
tant for the Hendry & Glades County
Health Departments).

Fees
Continued From Page 1

DCA, mentioned Richard Pringle.
"I would agree with Mr. Taylor.
If you adopt the schedule of fees
and then, if in the short term, you
want to suspend the collection of
those fees, you can do that," Mr.
Pringle said.
The current impact fees will
remain in effect until the board
decides on impact fee increases
and/or suspends them.
The public hearing for adopt-
ing impact fees will be continued
to November 24, to include a sep-
arate public hearing at that time
to consider suspending the col-
lection of such fees until October
1,2009.

are 175 by 300 feet with garage
doors that are 30 feet high and 75
feet wide. The 51,000 square feet
of storage has open trusses with
ventilation.
There are no windows in the
building which prohibits sun
damage to vessels, but the facility
will have a condo-look to it after
the decorative awnings and shut-
ters are in place. River Forest's
on-site manager, Tom McColgan,
mentioned that the final stages
of landscaping and irrigation are
in progress; and Deona Campos,


restaurant manager, is making
sure the ice tea is freshly brewed.
Joe Charles assures boaters
that the yachting center is not just
another boat yard.
"This is a long term storage fa-
cility," he said.
Mr. Charles commented that
he needs to hire a reception-
ist who is familiar with keep-
ing books and has an interest in
boats. A new office manager will
also be hired. For more informa-

Grow season crops in containers

The boat dock area near the bridge in Moore Haven has had worn-out structure removed.
Moore Haven and the economic development council are studying marina plans.


By Angela Sachson,
Horticultural agent
Extension Office, Okeechobee
Service Center
Not everyone wants or needs
a big vegetable garden. Some of
us just yearn for the taste of some
homegrown broccoli or fresh
herbs for salsa. Here's a way to
contain your garden.
There is no reason to tear up
your yard-in fact; the current
conventional wisdom is that till-
ing the ground may be bad for it.
So if you are short on space and
hoping to grow a little food, try
the following methods.
It's always a good idea to start
small, and in this case we mean
tiny. Any corner of your yard is a
spot for a container of vegetables
as long as it gets six hours of sun.
The sidewalk, the driveway, the
patio, deck, dock or balcony can
all work just fine.
And container gardening has
advantages even if you have
plenty of space. No tilling, fewer
weeds, absence of nematodes,
and even some portability in case
of threatened freeze.
The first requirement for a con-
tainer is that it cost little or, prefer-
ably, nothing. You can buy grow
bags but why would you. In fact,
if you forget your reusable gro-
cery bags and end up with some
plastic ones, poke some drainage
holes in the bottom, put in some
potting soil and plant. This planter
even has handles for moving.
You can use tires, baskets, kid-
die pools barrels and drums, and
restaurants buy oil and other food
in large buckets and cans. Look
around your house and yard for
likely candidates. Just be sure to
provide holes for drainage. I have
a crape myrtle in an old wash
tub. Unusual containers are good
for ornamental as well as edible
plants.
Potatoes grow great in a large
container of layered compost and
soil. Just plant the eyes in the


bottom of a barrel and continue
to add soil and compost as they
shoot up. They tell me I've not
tasted potatoes until I taste the
home grown kind. The container
also protects from marauding
critters.
Smaller containers are great
for herbs. An old coffee pot looks
great filled with chives and I have
seen a shoe of parsley. Of course
you might not want this whimsi-
cal addition to your formal gar-
den. When choosing a container
keep in mind the size of the plant
you want to grow and the size of
the root system as well. Strawber-
ry jars are good for herbs and also
provide a vertical home for (you
guessed it) strawberries.
One popular new way to grow
vegetables is upside down in spe-
cial bags. Watering and feeding
from the top, growing toward the
ground, these plants get lots of
air circulation and do not have to
be staked! Cucumbers should be
less susceptible to fungal diseases
planted this way. But don't buy a
special bag. Use a bucket or one
or two plastic grocery bags with
a hole for the plant in the bot-
tom. Pull the roots up through
the hole, spread them on the bot-
tom of the container, and fill with
potting medium. For hanging
vegetables my friend the expert
container gardener suggests a
lighter weight mixture of half per-
lite and half composted manure.
The bags and buckets have built-


in hangers. This year I planted
my vegetables in bags of potting
soil, top soil, and compost. I have
laid out the bags in my raised-bed
plot, and made holes in the bot-
tom for drainage. The holes in the
top are just big enough for the
plants. In the case of salad plants
I cut out the top to seed. Each 40-
pound bag will hold one tomato
or eggplant, a couple of pepper
plants or a whole bunch of rad-
ishes and carrots. The peas are al-
ready beginning to climb up their
chicken-wire supports.
Keep the compost moist and
feed plants such eggplant, toma-
toes, cucumbers and peppers
with a high potash fertilizer when
flowers appear this will ensure
the plumpest fruit. When crops
have finished, I plan to split the
bag open and recycle the com
post as a soil conditioner in the
garden.
Whatever your favorite vegeta-
ble you can find a container and
a garden spot to grow good fresh
produce.

mation on container gardening,

Remember our veterans
On Nov. 11, Gordon Bryant, left, and Butch Jones, right, recite the names of over 300

in peace at cemeteries in Muse and Venice. Paul Luckey, center, supports the flag on this
windy day.
