1920's historical home is preserved


Christmas open
house held for Pieter
Westergaard House

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat -

MOORE HAVEN Dec. 13
marked the first annual Christ-
mas Open House for the Glades
County Historical Society at the
newly restored Pieter Wester-
gaard House. The 1920's struc-'
ture can be seen at 270 Avenue L
in Moore Haven's historic district


near the Caloosahatchee River.
The Westergaard house had be-
come neglected for a long time
and the historical society under-
took the task of raising funds and
donating time to the preserva-
tion project.
The organization is a member
of Glades County Economic De-
velopment Council, and a shared
goal is the establishment of a
tourism industry. The restored
structure will be a point of inter-
est to tourists and travelers; and
two other nearby homes have
been restored as residences. The
Glades County courthouse, with


its exterior preservation: near
completion, will attract tourists,
historians and photographers.
An Historic Properties Survey
of Moore Haven, Florida can be
read at the pubic library on Riv-
erside Drive.
Society members and visi-
tors were pleased with the re-
pair work, landscape plants and
sod, parking lot and wheelchair
ramp. The simple style of the
home with its practical furnish-
ings and decorations provides
a relaxed atmosphere. Even
though the Pieter Westergaard
House is finished for open


house; there is more to be done
with' furnishings, appliances and
decor. When possible, antiques
and replicas will be procured to
provide the final tender loving
care the society wants it to have.
Anne Coffey, historical society
president, and other members
invite local residents and the
civic-minded to visit the preser-
vation site of the county seat and
county history. Some communi-
ty members have been involved
with the research and revitaliza-
tion program since 1993. At that
time, the Moore Haven High.
School-honors English class and


teacher, Laura Ahern, searched
records and interviewed long
time residents.
Funding was provided by
Florida Department of State His=
torical Resources Division. An
architectural survey was done;
and historic documents and
photographs were collected by
the high school class. Through
these efforts, 41 buildings were
eligible for historic designation;
according to Ms. Coffey.
Individuals who donated to
the society's .cause are John

New law gives veterans


mortgage options


New law changes
VA home loan
finance program

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUN'TY-- On
Oct. 10, 2008, the Veterans'
Benefits Improvement Act of
2008 was signed on as law.
The impact for veterans in-


clouded the federal authority to
extend guaranteed adjustable
rate mortgages (ARM), and hy-
brid adjustable rate mortgages
(HARM) through Sept. 30,
2012. Enhanced VA mortgage
options are now available for
qualified veterans in financial
distress. Many vet home own-
ers are in trouble due to high
rate subprime mortgages.
"These changes will allow
VA to assist a substantial num-
ber of veterans with subprime
mortgages refinance into a


safer, more affordable VA guar-
anteed loan," said Dr. James Bi
Peake, Secretary of Veteran
Affairs.
The VA had never guarani
teed subprime loans before
now. Veterans who want 'td
refinance conventional or sub-
prime mortgages may do so fo1
up to 100 percent of the proper
ty's value. Previously, this type
of loan had a limit of 90 percent
of the value.

ty Sheriff's Office volunteer their time to organize the fund
raiser, shop for the right toys, and give them out at the Doyle
Conner Building. The sheriff's office wishes to thank com-
munity members for their generous donations.

Letters to the Editor


Festival was a huge
success
Dear Editor,
The Christmas on the Caloo-
sahatchee Committee at Moore
Haven Elementary School would
like to express their sincere ap-
preciation for the hard work that
everyone put in to making this
year's 8th annual festival a huge
success. The City of Moore Haven
employees worked diligently to
put up decorations and help with
arrangements for the celebration.
They Worked throughout the day
and during the entire festival to


ensure that we had a success-
ful event. Without their help,
Christmas on the Caloosahatchee
would not have been the success
that it was. We also want to thank
the school employees, parents,
students, community members,
and community organizations
that participated in and attended
the event. We hope to make next
year's Christmas on the Caloosa-
hatchee even bigger and better!
Sincerely,
The Christmas on the Ca-

Wrestling all the




way to the summit


Clewiston and Glades
Central look to make
impact in Class 1A
this season

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION The
area's two wrestling teams will
try to scramble its way to the top
of Class 1A this season.
Clewiston and Glades Central,
both of which met in last year's
Clewiston Invitational, aim to win
their respective districts.
Both teams finished third in
their respective district tourna-
ments last season, with Clewiston
being edged out by South. Fort
Myers (District 12-1A champions)
and Naples (District 12-1A runner-
-up).
District 12-1A includes teams
such as LaBelle, Estero, Immoka-
lee and Golden Gate.
Glades Central, meanwhile,
was defeated by Jupiter Chris-
tian (District 13-1A champions)
and Jensen Beach (District 13-1A
runner-up).
District 13-1A, which also in-
cludes. Benjamin, Cardinal.. New-
man and Suncoast.
For both teams to maximize.
their. potential, they know that
competing hard in each meet is
an absolute must.
Clewiston and Glades Central
feature' a host of standout wres-
tlers, including Joey Cordova
(Clewiston), Darrarian Allen
(Clewiston) and Wilky Exantus
(Glades Central), to name just a
few.
Cordova and Allen, both se-
niors, were named co-MVPs at
this past May's Clewiston Winter/
Spring sports banquet.
Both standouts, which quali-
fied for the Class IA state tour-
nament in Lakeland last season,
seek to become state champions
in their respective weight classes
come February.
Cordova (152 lb. weight class)
and Allen (171 lb. weight class),.
both currently undefeated head-
Sing into Saturday's Clewiston In-
vitational, are ranked No. 7 in the
state ir their weight classes.
David Gay, Clewiston's sec-
ond-year head' coach, believes
that other wrestlers such as Alex
Bentancor (125 lb. class), Andy
Cordova (130 lb. class), Damian,
Smith (160 lb. class) and
Fourth-ranked Adam Trevino
(215 lb. class), could emerge in
the state tournament as well.
Trevino was another standout
wrestler who qualified for the
state tournament last season.
"It's gonna be a hard road, but
I think they'll qualify," Gay said.
Exantus, who was the runner-
up in last season's Palm Beach
County wrestling meet, is now
considered Glades Central's vet-
eran leader.
Looking to make his first ap-
pearance in the Class 1A state
tournament, Exantus will try to
take himself and his Glades Cen-
tral team over the top this sea-
son.
The Raiders will have three re-
turning wrestlers, including Law-
ton Petitefree (189 lb. class) and
Eli Blye (Heavyweight class).
The rest of the team are
newcomers, according to Marc
Schultz, the sixth-year head
coach.
"We have quite a few who are
new to the sport," Schultz said.
"They are working hard in
practice and learning quick," he
continued
"We should be strong and
peak at the right time when play-
offs begin."

Clewiston has already partici-
pated in three meets this season,
including a Nov. 22 date at the'
Golden .Gate Invitational, a Dec.
6 competition at the Park Vista
Invitational and a Dec. 13 date at
Okeechobee.
In the Nov. 22 meet at Golden
Gate, Bentancor and Andy Cor-
dova placed first, while Baucum
and Soriano placed second and
fourth, respectively.
At the Park Vista meet, Clewis-,
ton finished third as a team,
behind Western High and Park
Vista.
Seven wrestlers placed in the
Dec. 6 tournament, including
Bentancor (first place; won by
decision in the finals), Andy Cor-
dova (third place), Soriano (sixth
place), .Baucum (third place),
Joey Cordova (first place; won
by technical pin in finals), Allen
(first place; won by technical pin
in finals) and Trevino (first place;
.won by pin infinals)

Clewiston wrestling
meet on Saturday
Heading into the Dec. 20
competition the Saturday meet
will be held at Clewiston Middle
School, beginning at 10 a.m. Gay
Sis hoping that his team will finish
in the top two, at the very least.
In last season's Clewistdn In-
vitational, held at Clewiston High'
School, Clewiston, as a team,
won the meet, while Immokalee
was the runner-up.
This weekend, some key play-
ers won't be able to compete, but
Gay thinks the wrestling team will
be just fine.
"We'll be missing some our
studs, but I still think the young
kids we have will pull through,"
.,,Gay said.'
The teams that will be com-
peting in Saturday's meet include
Glades Central, Immokalee, Mar-
tin County, LaBelle, Evangelical
Christian, Golden Gate, Naples,
St. Andrews, Sebring, Gateway
Charter and Suwanee High.
Th4 top three wrestlers in each
weight class will receive medals
and a special award will be given
out to the meet's most outstand-
ing wrestler..
The top two teams, according
to Gay, will earn plaques at the
end of the meet.

ty runner-up last year and looking
to go to state this year.
Orelien, considered by Schultz
as a bright spot for the team,
placed first at the Palm Beach

The 135-pound wrestler, ac-


cordihg to Schultz, now has a
10-1 record going into Saturday's
meet in Clewiston.
The Wellington Tournament

Gators look for respect


By Naji Tobias
BELLE GLADE The Glades
Day Gators boys basketball team
is enjoying a nice run so far this
season. Building on last year's
success, as evidenced by their
18-7 overall record, Glades Day
is now considered on of the top
teams in Class 2A.
Currently sitting at a 5-1 re-
cord, the Gators, according to
last week's Associated Press
High School Boys Basketball
poll, were ranked No. 8 in Class
2A. The latest AP Class 2A state
poll was released on Tuesday.
The team's only loss this
season was a tough 56-53 loss
on Dec. 9 to neighboring rival
Clewiston, which has the same
won-loss record as Glades Day.
With that being said, it
wouldn't be a surprise if the Ga-
tors become state title contend-
ers once tournament play begins
in February.

Glades Day Gators
Head Coach: Jeff Browning
(second season)
Last season's final record:
18-7 (lost in District 13-2A semifi-
nals to Summit Christian)
Top Players: Sr. F Vince
Lewis, Sr. G/F Tariq Martin, Sr.
G Jairus Browning, Sr. G Alain
Damisse
STop Newcomers: Sr. G Ricky
Odige, Sr. G Ryan Romano
Veteran leadership will be the
key for this year's team, which
has a total of 10 seniors playing.
In fact, Browning says the
talent level in this program is so
deep, all of the, juniors were rel-
egated to playing on the junior
varsity team.
Next year's crew, Browning
said, will all come from the JV
team, which consists of juniors
and sophomores. '
"If any of the juniors moved
up to varsity, they likely wouldn't
see any playing time," Browning
said regarding the team's lineup.
Should Glades Day make a
run for the Class 2A state title this
season, it certainly won't be just
because of that veteran leader-
ship.
Another thing the Gators have
in their favor is their regular sea-

son schedule. In some cases,
playing a tough schedule could
ruin a team's season. But for
Glades Day, this likely won't be
the case. It's only beneficial to
a small-school team like Glades
Day, when it's scheduled to play
Class 6A teams such as Royal
Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gar-
dens, Seminole Ridge and John
I. Leonard.
Also, a series of district tests
awaits them as they seek to win
the District 13-2A tournament in
February. The district that Glades
Day plays in features teams like
Summit Christian, Benjamin,
King's Academy, American Her-
itage-Delray Beach, St. Edwards-
Vero beach and Jupiter Chris-
tian.
Summit Christian is the de-
fending district champion.
"It's gonna be a tough dis-
trict, we'll find out early how
well we compete with these
teams," Browning said. The sea-
son schedule will also include
the Derek Harper Holiday Classic
Tournament.
The holiday tournament, to
be played at Palm Beach Lakes
High School, will be held from
Dec. 26 to Dec. 29. It will feature
several basketball teams, includ-
ing Glades Central, a team that's
considered one of the best Class
4A teams in the state.
"Glades Central is gonna be
really good this year, I think,"
Browning said. "If we get to play
them, it will be great for every-
one from the Muck to watch."
. According to Browning, the
only way Glades Day and Glades-
Central will meet is if they both
advance to the Dec. 29 champi-
onship game.
More information on the Der-
ek Harper Classic will be avail-
able next week. As for Clewis-
ton, the home-and-home series
will continue on Feb. 3, a road
game for Glades Day.
It's the' rnext-to-last regular
seasoli game for the Gators.
"Our games with Clewiston
will be evenly matched," Brown-
ing said.
"I think both of our teams will
be very athletic and competitive
throughout the season."
But for Glades Day to avenge


its early season loss to Clewiston,
shot selection must be improved.
The Gators, as a team, shot just
28.8 percent (15-for-52 from the
floor) in its humbling defeat.
"We just need to keep work-
ing on that," Browning said.
"Clewiston played well through-
out the game. It'll work itself out,
we'll play better."

Mayaimis Indian Nation on Lake 0 *--.r g-8--L
vC ^ --I^ ^T ----- ^I C--D


By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum Director
The coursing dark waters
of the creek moved sluggishly
through the evergreen islands of
cypress on a timeless journey to
Lake Okeechobee.
Small sloughs, feed by the
creek, hosted thousands of snowy
egrets and other wading birds
that moved silently; hunting and
stalking a menagerie of aquatic
creatures that inhibited these far
flung, fertile waters of the creek.
Overhead, the sun's orange
orb cast long filaments of light,
which captured the images along
the creek in a spectrum of colors
before brushing them in long,
shadowy strokes across the qui-
etly settled waters of the creek.
The picturesque image of an
Indian wood carver, gazing into
the predatory eyes of a bird figu-
rine, reflected across the placid
waters of the creek..
A panorama of images fol-
lowed, portraying an array of
shark teeth, Celts and pottery
shards surrounding the seated,
silent'wood carver as he cradled
the newly resurrected, wooden
eagle that he had lovingly and ar-
tistically brought to life.
This tale depicts a real Indian
carver that once lived in a thriv-
ing Mayaimis Indian town on the
banks of'Fisheating Creek.
Today my story leapfrogs
across the lake to Fort Center, a
state wildlife preserve near Lake-
port. .
.It's time to take "A Walk in
the Past" to see how those early


Glades residents lived.
Archeologists call the Mayai-
mis Indians the "Belle Glade Cul-
ture."
It is a term that describes a
unique Indian culture around
Lake Okeechobee and possibly
the Kissimmee River valley from
approximately 1,000 B.C. to 1,700
or 1,800 A.D.
The Indians that once lived at
Fort Center left behind distinct
culture patterns and artifacts that
identify them as the Mayaimis, the
"Belle Glade Culture."
The Mayaimis were not the
first people to settle and build a
town at Fort Center.
There were earlier inhabitants,
a smaller race of people that built
and lived on.some of the mounds
that the later Mayaimis occupied.
These earlier inhabitants have
been found at many locations in
south Florida, but little is known
about them.
Our ole friend, Fontenando,
a Spanish slave of the Calusas,
gives us the name of a Mayaimis
town on Lake Okeechobee that
some historians have identified as
Fort Center.
Fontenando wrote the Calu-
sas were "The masters of a large
district of county, as far as a town
they call Guacata, on the Lake of
Mayaimi, which is called Mayaimi
because it is very large.
Around it are many little vil-
lages, which I will speak about
hereafter."
Archeologists believe the Gua-
cata town Fontanedo referred to
was not located at Fort Center, but
at another location in close prox-


imity to the Lake Okeechobee.
They have some clues that
point to the east side of the lake.
They think that Fontanedo and
Jonathan Dickison lend some
interesting tips in their memoirs
that positions the Guacata town
on the east side of Lake Okeecho-
bee.
Both write about a tribe on the
east coast. called the Guacaras.
Was the tribe and Mayaimis town
name a coincidence?
There are large mounds on
Lake Okeechobee's eastern
shores that fit the size criteria for
the Guacata town, but east of
Lake Okeechobee lies another
large network of mounds called
"Big Mound."
The "Big Mound" complex is
within the old territorial boundar-
ies of the Guacaras tribe.
Back in the day, Lake Okeecho-
bee was much larger during the
rainy season, and Fontanedo
could have identified "Big Mound"
as the town called Guacata on the
shores of Lake Okeechobee.
Hopefully archeologists will
uncover evidence in the future
that can identify Fontanedo's long
lost town.
The Mayaimis town at Fort
Center was large.
Archeologist, William H Sears,
identified a network of mounds
that are staggered for a mile along'
Fis'eating creek.
An interesting feature of the
mounds are the circular ditches
found along the creek.
One ditch circle forms a quar-
ter of a mile diameter, three or
four feet deep; archaeologists call

this a Sun Circle.
Circular ditches and linear em-
bankments found at Fort Center
are characteristic of the "Belle
Glade Culture."
Archeologist William H Sears
spent six years researching the
Fort Center mounds.
He divided the Belle Glade
Culture at Fort Center into four
periods; I (1000 BCE -200 CE), II
(200 700), III (700 1300), and
IV (1300- 1700).
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian town
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "A Walk in The Past."
This article on Fort Cehter can
come alive for you and your fami-
lies on January 10, 2009, when
the Florida Fresh Water and Game
Commission host a grand open-
ing. Everyone is invited.
Activities will include: swamp
buggy hayrides, archeology pre-
sentations, artifacts, archery, a
live reptile display, tracking les-
sons, oral history, and music and

Indians lived).
I hope you enjoyed this story.

SFWMD takes next step



toward Land Acquisition


Water Managers
accept contract to
purchase vast
agricultural land

INI Florida-After extensive de-
liberation, due diligence and pub-
lic input, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
Governing Board today voted 4
to 3 to accept a proposal to ac-
quire more than 180,000 acres of
agricultural land for Everglades
restoration from the United States
Sugar Corporation, contingent
upon a specific amendment to
the negotiated purchase and sale
contract.
The transaction, subject to fi-
nancing and U.S. Sugar's concur-
rence with the revised contract
condition, would provide water
managers with the unprecedent-
ed opportunity to store and treat
water on a scale never before
envisioned for the benefit of the
River of Grass, Lake Okeechobee
and the St. Lucie and Caloosa-
hatchee rivers and estuaries. The
proposed purchase is the largest
public land acquisition in Flori-
da's history and the single most
important action to protect the
Everglades since the designation
of Everglades National Park sixty
years ago.
"This is a once-in-a-lifetime
opportunity to. acquire land in
the Everglades Agricultural Area
for restoration. The immense
environmental benefit of these
lands and their value to Florida's
unique Everglades ecosystem
cannot be overstated," said SF-
WMD Governing Board Chair-
man Eric Buermann. "Without
,losing sight of Governor Crist's
bold vision for restoration, the
Board has evaluated the details
of the proposed acquisition and
listened carefully to the input of
Floridians, the Florida Legislature
and local elected leaders. Amend-
ing the contract before us is an
important step for delivering an
-agreement that not only meets
South Florida's environmental
needs but also better protects the
interests of the taxpayers. This is
good government and the public
process.at work. We are hopeful
that U.S. Sugar will agree to this
essential and necessary improve-
ment to the contract and accept
the Board's revision."
Highlights of the purchase
and lease agreements in-
clude:
The District would take own-
ership of a minimum of 180,000
acres land and its improvements
for a purchase price of $1.34 bil-
lion.
Under a separate agreement,
U.S. Sugar would lease and man-
age the land for agricultural op-
eration for seven years, avoiding
more than $40 million in land
management costs to the District
over the life of the lease.
The lease arrangement would
allow the release of the first 10,000



New rules

The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) on Thursday proposed a
series of draft rule amendments
for the marine life (aquarium
species) fishery. These proposed
rules are intended to enhance the
,FWC's existing marine life regula-
tions to help maintain the health
of Florida's important coral reef
ecosystem.
Members of the commercial
marine life industry have for years
been proactive in coming to the
Commission with ideas and rec-
ommendations to protect the
fishery and promote the conser-
vation of marine life resources.
After considering recommen-
dations made by its Marine Life
Workgroup, composed of marine
life fishery stakeholders, and re-
ceiving comments from the pub-
lic, the FWC is proposing a series
of draft rule amendments that
would add new fish and inverte-
brate species to marine life regu-
lations, establish or change size
and bag limits and gear specifica-
tions for several marine life spe-
cies, and make other administra-
tive and technical marine life rule
changes.
Florida's marine life fishery
involves the taking of live fish, in-
vertebrates and plants mostly for


aquariums. The fishery occurs
primarily within coral reefs, which
are one of the most biologically
diverse and valuable ecosystems
on earth.
The FWC considers it essential


acres of property to the District at
any time after the first year with
appropriate notice. An additional
30,000 acres may be released in
year six, on or after December 30,
2015.
The lease agreement would
also allow for the release of up
to 3,000 acres in connection with
land transfers to municipalities or
other governmental entities.
The company would retain
ownership of its major assets, in-
cluding a sugar mill, refinery, rail-
road and citrus processing plant.
Subject to court validation and
suitable market conditions, the
District would issue certificates of
participation to fund the land ac-
quisition. The parties must close
on the purchase within 90 days of
bond validation and no later than
September 25, 2009.
To protect the agency's core
mission in light of a fluctuat-
ing and challenging economic
climate, the Governing Board
strengthened financing condi-
tions within the purchase and
sale agreement offered by U.S.
Sugar. Before closing, a newly
proposed clause would allow
the Governing Board to review
the most current economic con-
ditions including interest rates
and revenue streams and verify
the District's capacity to finance
the purchase and accomplish its
existing statutory mandates and
legal obligations.
"Economic conditions and rev-
enue projections have changed
dramatically over the last five
months since negotiations for this
acquisition began and it is incum-
bent upon the Board to protect
the agency's ability to achieve its
mission as we move this acquisi-
tion forward," added Chairman
Buermarn. "It is our fiduciary re-
sponsibility to ensure that the Dis-
trict can both afford this purchase
and accomplish its core flood
control, water supply and emer-
gency management mandates."
Today's Governing Board ac-
tion was the culmination of more
than five months of complex ne-
gotiations and due diligence that
began after Florida Governor
Charlie Crist first announced the
opportunity to acquire the vast
tracts of land from U.S. Sugar
for environmental restoration
on June 24, 2008. The District's
extensive due diligence included
multiple land appraisals, envi-
ronmental assessments and en-
gineering evaluations over more
than 180,000 acres. The in-depth
reports and data associated with
the acquisition were presented
to the Governing Board during
a series of monthly public meet-
ings and made available through
the District's Web site at www.
sfwmd.gov/riverofgrass as part of
the public proceedings and delib-
eration.
Environmental goals of the
acquisition include:
Huge increases in the avail-
ability of water storage, signifi-
cantly reducing the potential for



proposed

to conserve Florida's coral reefs
by reducing the adverse impacts
.fishing and other human interac-
tions can cause to these ecosys-
tems, and is continuing its long
collaboration with the marine
life fishing industry to implement
management regulations to pre-
serve this fishery.
The FWC is proposing to add
several species to the marine life
rule, which means that com-
mercial harvesters of these spe-
cies would need a marine life
endorsement to collect them,
and these species also would be
included in the marine life rec-
reational bag limit. The species
proposed to be added include
porcupine fish, spotted burrfish,
black brotula, key brotula, yel-
low stingray, blackbar soldierfish,
red mithrax crab, emerald.crab,
red ridged clinging crab, the star
snail lithopoma tectum, all hermit
crabs (except land hermits), and
nassarius snails.
The proposed rules would also
lower the minimum size limit for
Cuban hogfish from 3 to 2 inches
total length, raise the maximum
size limit for butterflyfish from 4
to 5 inches total length, establish
maximum size limits of 9 inches
total length for tangs and 12 inch-
es total length for parrotfish, low-


er the daily commercial bag limit
for angelfish (gray, French, blue
and queen)' from 75 per person
and 150 per vessel to 50 per per-
son and 100 per vessel, change
the daily commercial bag limit for


harmful discharges from Lake
Okeechobee to Florida's coastal
rivers and estuaries when lake
levels are high
The ability to deliver cleaner
water to the Everglades during
dry times and greater water stor-
age to protect the natural system
during wet years
Preventing tons of phosphorus
from entering the Everglades ev-
ery year
Significantly reducing the
need for "back-pumping" water
into Lake Okeechobee from the
Everglades Agricultural Area to

needs
Additional water storage alter-
natives, relieving some pressures
on the Herbert Hoover Dike while
the federal government under-
takes repairs
Significant flexibility in manag-
ing Lake Okeechobee levels in a
more environmentally friendly
way
"The Board is grateful to Gov-
ernor Crist for his vision in seeing
an -extraordinary opportunity to
revive the River of Grass and safe-
guard the Caloosahatchee and
St. Lucie rivers. The Governor de-
serves our thanks for his courage
in bringing once divergent inter-
ests together to. fully explore this
opportunity for the Everglades,"
added the Chair.
The Everglades:
America's Everglades once
covered almost 11,000 square
miles of South Florida. Just a
century ago, water flowed down
the Kissimmee River into .Lake
Okeechobee, then south through
the Everglades to the Florida Bay
- the ultimate destination of the
pure sheet flow. Because of ef-
forts to drain the marshland for
agriculture, development and
flood control, the Everglades is to-
day half the size it was a century
ago.
Dubbed the River of Grass
for the sawgrass that flourished
throughout the marsh, the Ever-
glades is a mosaic of freshwater
ponds, prairies and forested up-
lands that supports a rich plant
and wildlife community. Known
throughout the world for its wad-
ing birds and wildlife, the Ever-
glades is home to more than sixty
threatened and endangered spe-
cies, including the Florida pan-
ther, American crocodile, snail
kite and wood stork. The mix of
salt and freshwater makes it the
only place on Earth where alliga-
tors and crocodiles exist side by
side.

FWC will propose new



boating legislation


The Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC) directed staff to proceed
with submitting draft legislation
to the Florida Legislature which,
among other provisions, will
create a pilot program to test
boat anchoring and mooring
regulations in various parts of
the state.
Public access sites for boat-
ers have diminished because
of. development of waterfront
properties and privatization of
boating facilities. As a result,
some boaters have anchored
or moored their vessels on the
water permanently, or for long
periods, and often behind wa-
terfront properties. The vessels
can become derelict, create nav-
igational hazards and property
damage, harm sea grass and
corals, and create pollution.
Under pressure from hom-


eowners and others, local gov-
ernments implemented local
codes and ordinances that are in
conflict with state laws. Howev-
er, for boaters it was confusing
because they often experienced
local jurisdictions with different
rules and regulations.

under construction, November 2008.


Lakeside Medical
Center, on schedule
to open in the fall of
2009
The Board of Commission-
ers of the Health Care District
voted unanimously on Dec. 10 for
"Lakeside Medical Center" to be
the name for the new 70-private
bed hospital in western Palm
Beach County that is on track for
completion in the fall of 2009.
"This name captures what this
new hospital is all about-a mod-
ern medical facility that has been
strategically situated to serve
all the communities which hug
the southeastern shores of Lake
Okeechobee," said Board Chair
Jonathan R. Satter.
Lakeside Medical Center is be/
ing constructed on a 50-acre site
at the intersection'of US 441 and
State Road 80, centrally located
with easy access from the three
towns of the region-Belle Glade,


Pahokee, and South Bay. The 70-
bed hospital will be able to ac-
commodate a service area that
extends beyond the Tri-Cities.
"Lakeside Medical Center re-
flects a new beginning, and we
feel the name conveys that for-
ward-looking, positive view," said
Bryan Cross, Chair of the Glades
General Hospital Board. "The
name Lakeside Medical Center
represents all of our communities
and our close proximity to Lake
Okeechobee."
The Health Care District de-
signed Lakeside Medical Center
with the comfort, privacy, and
safety of patients, their families,
and visitors in mind. All inpatient
rooms are single-occupancy. In
addition, there are family-friend-
ly consultation rooms, and an
enhanced Emergency Room to
swiftly and efficiently treat pa-
tients. The ER also has direct ac-
cess:to a large helipad to facilitate
Trauma Hawk and other aero-
medical transport. To promote
care and comfort for new moth-
ers, their babies and their fami-


lies, the new hospital features six
private labor and delivery rooms
and a dedicated area for ten pri-
vate postpartum rooms. In addi-
tion, Lakeside Medical Center will
provide a state-of-the-art visitor
security system.
"Our goal is for patients to feel
comfortable and secure the min-
ute they enter the doors," said
Health Care District Chief Execu-
tive Officer Dwight D. Chenette.
"Lakeside Medical Center will
further advance the District's mis-
sion of ensuring access to a com-
prehensive health care system
and delivering quality services for
Palm Beach County residents."
Earlier this month, Glades
General Hospital Board members
were taken on a tour of the new
hospital by Michael J. Gates, the
Health Care District's Senior De-
velopment Director. Mr. Gates is
leading the development of the
campus and continues to'ensure
that the scope, schedule and bud-
get objectives are achieved.
"It is such an impressive sight
to see all of the spacious private
patient rooms and how each
department inside the. new
hospital is designed for maximum
efficiency," said Ronald Wiewora,
MD, Glades General Hospital's
Interim Administrator and Chief
Medical Officer of the Health
Care of Palm Beach County. "In
the near future, we look forward
to announcing several newly-
recruited physicians to join our
dedicated and veteran hospital
staff."
The Emergency Room has
been designed to handle patients'
needs efficiently and provide care
promptly. There will be 16 treat-
ment areas and six private rooms
in the Intensive Care Unit. In ad-
dition, there will be three "fast-
track" exam areas. On the cam-
pus just outside the Emergency
Room is an oversized helipad
for the District's Trauma Hawk
air-ambulances. Patients who
are traumatically injured will be
rushed to one of the two Trauma
Centers in Palm Beach County.


This is just one of the ways that
Lakeside Medical Center is inte-
grated into the District's county-
wide health care delivery system.
When Lakeside Medical Center
opens, the staff and technology at
nearby Glades General Hospital
will be transitioned to the new
hospital, and Glades General will
be retired after more than sixty
years of service to the community.
From day one, Lakeside Medical
Center will function with state-
of-the-art technology, including a
16-slice CT scanner, an advanced
electronic patient records system,
and an Electronic Birth Registry
system, which enables the medi-
cal staff to gather patient data,
print out a report, and get the re-
quired electronic signatures all
at the bedside, within minutes.
The Health Care District has
committed $53 million toward
the $73 million hospital. The
Glades Healthcare Foundation, a
non-profit organization, is leading
the capital campaign to raise ad-
ditional funds for Lakeside Medi-
cal Center and for ongoing health
programs in the western com-
munities. If you wish to donate to
the campaign, please visit www.
gladeshealthcare.org


or call 561-833-8999.
More than just a medical cam-
pus, Lakeside Medical Center will
establish a new community hub
for the surrounding area, provid-
ing a wide range of health edu-
cation and wellness programs in
the numerous special meeting
and event rooms. The large medi-
cal campus has ample space for
future expansion.
After the District Board voted
on the new name of the hospi-
tal, Board member Effie C. Grear,
Ed.D., summed up: "Ever since
this project was first announced
more. than two years ago, there's
been a groundswell of enthusi-
asm throughout the Glades. That
hope now has a name Lake-
side Medical Center."

About Santa Claus; Folklore rooted in reality


My own opinions
regarding the belief
of Santa Claus

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph.D
Saint Martin's Church
He was most likely born in
Patura, in Asia Minor, in the fourth
century.
He was known to be faithful,
and became a church leader in
Mayra, the capital of the region.
It was a time of persecution
of Christian faithful and he was
believed to be imprisoned for his
belief.
He would stand against those
who attacked the Church later,


and defended his faith.
He would become known for
the special place he held among
children and sailors, providing
gifts for the young when their
families weren't able to do so.
His gifts were given in secret
but people really knew of his giv-
ing to children and the word was
spread.
He did God's work with humil-
ity and where he saw real needs.
As you see the preparation for
the celebration of Christmas, you
will see the reminders of his life
and work in the proliferation of
"Santa Clauses" in stores and on
streets.
Saint Nicholas was a real per-
son; his life and ministry among
children were soon seen as hon-
oring the special child who came


at this time: Jesus of Nazareth.
The connection between the
Babe born in Bethlehem and one
who blessed the lives of children
became obvious to people and
"Santa Claus" soon became a
herald of "Christmas."
The person in the malls and
stores is our remnant of the real
person; I wonder how many of
the children who have been in-
heritors of Nicholas' goodness
and tradition know that he really
lived and really cared about the
children he met.
The answer to the question "Is
Santa Claus real?" is... "maybe not
now, but he was real, and today
he is real in the life that comes af-
ter this life"
His remains are buried in Bari,
Italy and he has been honored


for centuries for the ways he ex-
pressed his faith for the Lord's
little ones.
The story of Christmas itself is
a story of a historic event and the
most special person in history.
It is about someone who lived
among us and how He came into
a difficult world, did not have an
easy life, gave Himself for others
and who also deserves to be re-
membered.
Christmas is special because
it is about real persons and what
they did for those around them,
and finally what they did for us
too.
When someone says that
Christmas doesn't seem special,
I wonder if they really know the
stories and heritage left to us that
is to be kept during this special


season.
Truth is stranger than fiction;
reality is far better than fantasy.
If there is something to be
handed down to our children,
something to restore the spirit of
the holidays that are soon here, it
is in celebrating what they're re-
ally about.
Do I believe in "Santa Claus?"
Yes.
Not the ersatz version of fic-
tional character with the sleigh
and reindeer, but the real Saint
Nicholas who loved children and
loved his Lord; and did good for
them because that was what his
faith led him to do.
He saw something special in
children and did something about
it.


a child when He chose to come
among us; sharing with us all of
the days here in a human family
and shared with brothers and sis-
ters; and knew the magic of fam-
ily and loved ones as He grew into
adulthood.
His coming and what He tran-
scends all of the legends and folk
stories that have grown up since.
Like other stories and folklore,
they can point to a truth beyond
themselves; may this season and
all the signs we see point to that
story beyond, and may we keep
it and celebrate it with the worthi-
ness and love for the Baby who is


The Lord Himself also became at the root of it all.


Two story of two babes in a Bethlehem manger


How the story of
Christmas was
interpreted by a child

By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Sometimes God comes to peo-
ple with the heavens ablaze as He
did to the shepherds.
More often though, God re-
veals himself in more quiet ways
- like.in the words of encourage-
ment spoken by a friend, or in a
child's smile, or the meaningful
touch of someone close to us or
even in "a baby wrapped in cloths
and lying in a manger."
Take six year old Misha's per-
spective on the Christmas story.


In 1994, some American mis-
sionaries were allowed to go into
Russia and teach at an orphan-
age.
At Christmas time, Misha was
one of the orphans who heard the
Christmas story for the first time.
Here is what happened as re-
lated from one of the missionar-
ies.
"We told them about Mary
and Joseph arriving in Bethle-
hem. Finding no room in the
inn, the couple went to a stable,
where the baby Jesus was born
and placed in a manger.
"Throughout the story, the
children and orphanage staff
sat in amazement as they lis-
tened. Some sat on the edges of
their stools, trying to grasp every


word."
"Completing the story, we gave
the children three small pieces of
cardboard to make a crude man-
ger. Each child was given a small
paper square, cut from yellow
napkins I had brought with me.
"No colored paper was avail-
able in the city. Following instruc-
tions, the children tore the paper
and carefully laid strips in the
manger for straw.
"Small squares of flannel,
cut from a worn-out nightgown
an American lady was throwing
away as she left Russia, were
used for the baby's blanket.
"A doll-like baby was cut from
tan felt we had brought from the
United States.
"The orphans were busy as-


sembling their mangers as I
walked among them to see if they
needed any help.
"All went well until I got to one
table.where little Misha sat he
looked to be about 6 years old
and had finished his project.
"As I looked at the little boy's
manger, I was startled to see not
one, but two babies in the man-
ger.
"Quickly, I called for the trans-
lator to ask the lad why there were
two babies in the manger.
"Crossing his arms in front of
him and looking at his completed
manger scene, the child began to
repeat the story very seriously.
"For such a young boy, who
had heard the Christmas story
only once, he related the happen-


ings accurately until he came to
the part where Mary put the baby
Jesus in the manger.
"Then Misha started to ad lib.
He made up his own ending to
the story as he said, 'And when
Mary laid the baby in the manger,
Jesus looked at me and asked me
if I had a place to stay.
"I told him I have no mamma
and I have no papa, so I don't
have any place to stay.
'Then Jesus told. me I could
stay with him. But I told him I
couldn't, because I didn't have
a gift to give him like everybody
else did. But I wanted to stay with
Jesus so much, so I thought about
what I had that maybe I could use
for a gift. I thought maybe if I kept
him warm, that would be a good


gift.
'So I asked Jesus, "If I keep you
warm, will that be a good enough
gift?" And Jesus told me, "If you
keep me warm, that will be the
best gift anybody ever gave me."
"So I got into the manger, and
then Jesus looked at me and he
told me I could stay with him for
always."
Christmas contains the prom-
ise that if we go to the manger
we will find the One who will stay
with us always.
In the midst of his situation,
Misha found that assurance. We
can do the same.
This Christmas, let us forget
about life's pressing demands for
a moment and snuggle in next to
the Christ child.


And that is the reason that Jesus Christ came!


How the birth of a
child changed a
community's way
of thinking

By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
There's an old story by Bret
Harte about a prbstitute who died


at a mining camp, leaving behind
a small baby.
The rough men known for
their wild living weren't sure what
to do with the baby, but soon be-
gan making some interesting de-
cisions and changes.
Instead of putting the baby in a
dirty wooden box, they bought a
rosewood cradle.
Instead of putting the baby's
dirty clothes back on, they bought
new ones.


Instead of leaving the house
dirty, they washed the windows,
painted the walls and ceiling, and
cleaned the floor.
The baby needed rest at night,
so this caused them to be quiet--
thus bringing to a halt to their no-
toriously evil nighttime habits.
Soon the men were cleaning
up'each day.
As the men changed their way
of life, Roaring Mine Camp also
changed.


A wicked mining camp was
transformed by the appearance
of a little baby among them.
Jesus entered this world filled
with sin as a tiny baby.
He grew, He walked among
us.
He lived in perfect righteous-
ness, paid the price for our sins,
and overcame death to give us
new life!
As we celebrate His birth, let's
allow Him to clean us up, rear-


range our priorities, and trans-
form our world.
For every broken heart in
need of mending.
For every lonely child who
needs befriending.
For every time the innocent
will ever need defending.
THAT'S WHY HE CAME!
That's why He came, for.all the
lost and lonely.
That's why He came, for all the
questions only love explains.


And so that when we need
Him we can call upon His name.
THAT'S WHY HE CAME!
To bring His light into dark-
ness
And His healing to our pain
To bring hope when it seems
hopeless
THAT'SWHYHE CAME!. '-
-- Claire Cloninger
