Coalition



reports


Good news is
shown, but some
issues need work

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- Sub-
stance abuse can consume
individuals or have an effect
on entire families. That is why
a coalition of individuals and
groups have connected togeth-
er in order to better understand
the hazards of alcohol, drugs,
and tobacco addiction on com-
munity members.
Concern on-the part of
Glades County health depart-
,ment, health providers, par-
ents, media, law enforcement,
faith groups, social services,
schools, businesses and local:
government have influenced
them to learn, inform and aid
their fellow residents.
They have come together
to organize, learn, observe and
develop plans that will inform
local residents. This all-inclusive
coalition joined together for the
first time Oct. 28, and on Dec.
15 the second meeting revealed
survey statistics which may in-
' terest all county communities..
The coalition speakers
were Angelica Pena and Jen-
nifer Dyess. The meeting also
included guest speaker, John
Varady, Heartland Educational
Consortium.
Coalition members were
informed of the findings on
Glades County student social
norms survey given to middle
and high school students ear-
lier in the school year. The sur-


vey was created by Northern Il-
linois University, and measures
a 30 day use of tobacco, mari-
juana and alcohol. The surveys
were anonymous.
Sixty-five percent of teens
reported that they did not drink
alcohol in the last 30 days,
however they felt sure that 85
percent of their peers were en-
gaged in drinking. According to
coalition officials, the percep-
tion of young people that so
many peers are drinking when
they are not, may be due to
much of their focus being put
on the alcohol drinker who is
more vocal, popular or con-
spicuous.
Eighty-three percent of sec-
ondary students do not approve
of peers pressuring others to
drink, and 72 percent of them
prefer to date a non-drinker.
Sexenty-six percent do not ap-
prove of anyone's parents pro-
viding alcohol for teens. Coali-
tion leaders are encouraged by
these statistics on alcohol.
However one statistic from
the survey gives them pause
for serious thought. Forty-four
percent of young people sur-
veyed reported that within the
last 30 days they had ridden in
a car, boat or ATV operated by
a peer or family member who
had been drinking. Coalition
officials point out that rural life-
styles involve many outdoor ac-
tivities like camping, fishing, or
boating. These social activities
sometimes include alcohol. -
Mosf of the findings about
tobacco and marijuana use
are similar to the statistics on
alcohol. Eighty-three percent
of local teens had not tried a

Santa visits students


RCMA/GECC
schools receive
gift-books

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- The pre-
school age students at Redlands
Christian Migrant Association
school,-and Glades Early Child-
hood Center in Moore Haven
were in for a great day, Dec. 16.
Three important events were
happening that day just for their
benefit and enjoyment.
Eight volunteers from. the


Island Walk community in
Naples dressed as Christmas
characters including Santa
Claus. They brought beauti-
ful cupcakes, and a photogra-
pher took pictures of students
visiting with Santa, an elf and
Kermit the Frog. Ann McKeon,
volunteer, mentioned that they
have done this for several years
in a row.
They arrived in time to en-
tertain children and their teach-
ers, and to also participate in a
reading for pleasure program
called Reading Is Fundamen-
tal (RIF). The RIF activities are
done in all of the RCMAs more
than 70 Florida schools, offer-


ing activities that stimulate a
child's curiosity in reading and
making it possible for the child
to choose books that they get
to keep and take home. RCMA
services approximately 8,000
students statewide.
Every child got a chance to
visit with Santa's crew, includ-
ing students from Glades Coun-
ty Child Development Center in
Washington Park. Some of the
very youngest children were a
little nervous when they met
Santa, and it took some coax-
ing from smiling teachers and
volunteers to get a photo. After

UP SET VISITOR: I am a snow bird, so maybe I am just not up to
date on Florida law. I go every year at Christmas to my Mother's grave
in Ortona. This afternoon I got a nasty shock. I go to spend time and lay
flowers as I always do and I run into HUNTERS! There was a man in a
truck and a young boy with a rifle walking around the back of the cem-
etery with dogs all over the place. As I sit there I listen to yelling and the
dogs, then shots that looked like they came from the ditch area between
the Cemetery and the Picnic Park that is behind it, about 20 yards from
me if I had to guess. I could just hope that no one was in the park! Is this
sort of hunting with guns in public allowed all over Glades County? I live
in Fort Myers most of the year so this was something I have never seen. I
do not feel like I should have to worry about being attacked by a dog or
shot by a hunter when I go to visit my Mother, who passed a few years
back. I understand that there is a hunting area close by, but these people
were hunting in the cemetery and not even trying to hide it. As someone
who retired from a civil litigation career, this is defiantly a huge liability
for the county when people run into people with guns while they want
to visit their loved ones. I notice in this area there is a park, an air field
and the cemetery. Perhaps this is normal? I sure hope not, and I was very
upset by it. I mad a call or two to inquire if I should report this or if it
was ok and I was told that all the county commissioners knew about the
hunting on this land and had giving it the thumbs up. I wanted to use this
as a vent. Thank you for letting me do so. Happy Holidays.

Widely considered as on

Edwin James, the second
head coach, aims to build o

inaugural campaign, which
nothing short of impressive.
The Raiders, who won the
trict 14-4A tournament this
February, were just one
short of reaching the Clas
state Final Four last season.
The team, which fea
the likes of Eddie Poole,
Walford,' Deandre Holley,
avious Wooten, Antwon Chi;
among others, lost 79-55 ii
Class 4A regional finals to M
Monsignor Pace.
Though that collection
athletes were defeated by

Monsignor Pace is the two
defending Class 4A cham]
- Glades Central more than
its own in the fast-paced co
holding a 20-19 lead entering
second quarter.
But after Poole, got into
foul trouble, the Raiders sud,
fell behind and never recov
as they couldn't stop the sc
duo of Ray Shipman and Ral
Buckles, who combined fo
points and 22 rebounds.
"Our guys didn't have e]
ence playing in situations liki
and Miami Pace took advan
of that," James said.
If Glades Central wani
make it to Lakeland this se,
they'll likely have to avenge
season's defeat to the p(
house team, whichwill be l
Buckles, considered by son
one of the nation's top played
That's actually James's
goal for the season, though
'knows in order to get there,
business must be handled b

Pahokee game.
"Pahokee played a good game,
I just think our kids were looking

_,. -. Not only did Glades Central
look forward to the district, but
they stormed through the tourna-
ment, posting three straight wins
en route to the District 14-4A title,
which was held at Okeechobee
High School.
The Raiders defeated Jensen
Beach in the Feb. 5 quarterfinal
matchup, 49-37, while.moving on
to defeat host Okeechobee in the
Feb, 8 semifinal game, 62-41.
In the Feb. 9 championship
contest, Glades Central defeated
Santaluces, 67-43 to take home
the district trophy.
Now, as Glades Central looks
to win back-to-back titles, they

Feeding off their ever-growing
fan base will be another key, as
S well, since this season's district
tournament will be held at Glades

But he does know one thing
and will stick to the concept for
the Derek Harper Classic.
"Any given night, you can be
beat by anyone," James said.
"We need to play hard from
start to finish each game."
Here's the games that will be
played tomorrow at Palm Beach
Lakes:
Glades Day vs. Pompa-
no Beach-Ely @ 3 p.m.
Glades Central vs. Mi-
ami Lakes @ 4:30 p.m.
Santaluces vs. Mirimar
@ 6 p.m.
Palm Beach Lakes vs.
Atlantic @ 7:30 p.m.
On Saturday at 6 p.m., the
Glades Central-Miami Lakes win-
ner will play in the semifinals
against the Santaluces-Mirimar
winner.
At 7:30 p.m., the Glades Day-
Ely winner faces off against the
Palm Beach Lakes-Atlantic win-
ner in the second semifinal.
The championship game will
be played on Monday, Dec. 29 at
7:30 p.m.
It's improbable that a Glades
Central-Glades Day champion-
ship matchup will happen.
SBut given the fact this will be
one of those very rare opportuni-
ties the two teams have to play
each other, James would be hap-
py to see it happen.
"That would be a great match-
up for this area," he said.
"People would know that we
have basketball in the Glades and
not just football."
Here's hoping that the Derek
Harper Classic championship tro-
phy comes home to the Glades
on Dec. 29.

The Mayaimis Indian Nation
nwUUo*-n nm


Fort Ce er Mounds

By Butch Tilson
Clewiston Mseum
A thin, yepwish substance lay
sandwiched between the lime-
stone formions and the sandy
soils, markir the retreat of a pre-
historic sea.
The yelloww substance ran
serpentine along the banks of
Fisheating (reek.
Its gold color radiated in the
dark eyes ,f the Mayaimis wom-
an, whose slender brown hands
dug the ydlow, mineral rich soil
from its ancient restig place and
stored it ii palmetto woven bas-
kets.
The burdened baskets of yel-
low soil ere cared up the creek
embankment toa mound where
other women vere already mix-
ing some extraced soils.
.Water was idded to the soil,
forming a mixture that had the
consistency )f thick, yellow
cream.
The subcance was strained
through woen mats and left to
dry in earth pots.
Weeks Iter, solid, pliable clay
formed in ae bottom of the pots.
Nimbl fingers mixed. sand
with the liable clay and formed
ceremoral pipes with figurines
that drie in the sun.
Woo was placed around the
clay pip figurines, and a fire ig-
nited.
Likned to a phoenix ris-
ing frrm the flames, the yellow
earth forms turned a chocolate
broxl as the hot flames breathed
life ito them.
Tlis tale describes one method
the Vlayaimis Indians may have


used when making clay pots and
ceremonial objects.
It's time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and review some of the ce-
ramics found in the mounds of a
bygone Mayaimis town.
All of the bowls made by the
"Belle Glade Culture" and other
Indian cultures in Florida were
simple and unlike the more elab-
orate bowls made north of the
Florida peninsula.
Anthropologists wofider if this
"Florida Bowl tradition" indicates
a relationship with the early Indi-
an cultures found in Central and
South America.
This suggestion is an educated
guess, but remains another un-
solved mystery in Florida's an-
thropology.
The Mayamis Indian's "Belle
Glade Culture" is characterized
by the pottery they used: "Belle
Glade Plain" and "Glades Plain."
A characteristic that distin-
guishes these pottery styles is the
sandy, scratched surface of the
vessels.
The pottery varied in size ( 8"
to 15" ) and was plain and un-
decorated.:
Both 'styles are found at Fort
Center.
Pottery shards (fragments)
vary in color; Early "Belle Glade
Plain" shards are in the gray-
brown-black range and later pe-
riod shards are off-white to dirty,
light grey.
The early "Belle Glade Plain"
shards are thick and readily iden-
tified by their reddish, brown
color. '
There were other pottery styles
found at Fort Center. Some of the
pottery was more decorative than
the "Belle Glade Plain" or "Glades


Plain."
These pottery styles included;
St. Johns Check Stamped, Crystal
River series and others.
All were items that had been
traded from as far away as north
Florida.
So, why do you reckon those
Mayaimis traded their hard earned
furs and venison for morepots?
Time changes, but people re-
main the same.
No doubt, those lovely wives
in that bygone era consulted with
their husbands for some of the
nicer decor potteries found in ole
Paris (North Florida) to fancy up
their kitchens.
Archeologists, William H.
Sears and his team, recovered 74
fragments of pottery pipes that
represented a minimum of 50
pipes.
Most of the pipes were plat-
form pipes with different styles
and figurines.
A platform pipe had a figure
perched on the curved base of
the pipe.
The pipes were molded from
clay with a reed placed in the cen-
ter of the pipe stem.
When fired, the reed burned
out and left a hollow stem.
Mr. Sears noted that the pipes
were found at a single mound lo-
cation, in the same time period.
He thinks they were used as
ceremonial pipes.
Smoking was an itnportant
part of Indian religious ceremo-
nies and magic.
Many different plants were
used for smoking.
A plant called "Nicotiana Rus-
tica" was probably the tobacco
used by the Mayaimis.
Anthropologists believe it


originated in Central and South
America.
It has three or four times the
nicotine found in "Nicotiana Ta-
bacum," the tobacco used today.
There will be more Tall Tales
about the Mayaimis Indian town
at Fort Center in next week's edi-
tion of "AWalk in The Past."
This article can come alive for
you and your families on January

vegetation can prevent growth of
other desirable native vegetation,
as well as inhibiting boat traffic.
The interagency teams plan to
aerially treat 1,000 acres in places
where solid bands of the exotic
plants exist. At present, the areas
to be treated extend from mid-Ob-
servation Shoal northward along
the outside marsh, with some
treatments extending along the


north and eastern shores of the
lake as well. This aerial treatment
is considered the safest and most
efficient way to gain control of the
rapidly growing non-native float-
ing vegetation on Lake Okeecho-
bee. This measure, along with the
continued treatment by boat and
airboat of an additional 500 acres,
will limit the expansion of these
exotic, invasive weeds.

Christmas


By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
I have often asked people
"Where do you see yourself/
selves in five year?"
It is something that many do
not think abotit; the important
things is to "get the show on the
road" now..
Couples seeking to get mar-
ried want it to happen yesterday,
or at least right now, or at least as
soon as possible.
Someone starting a career says
"Finally, I've arrived" and before
the ink is dry on a diploma can't
wait to show the skills gathered
up.
Buying a house is a day of cel-
ebration, but it's only the first step


-As the end of the beginning


in making it a home.
That takes awhile as furni-
ture is placed, pictures are hung,
desks become cluttered, rooms
are renovated.
SBuying is only the first step; liv-
ing out the dream that it brings is
the unfolding gift of that first day.
I remember having a list of
courses to complete hung up in
my room while I was in college;
checking off four of five of them
at the end of each term and look-
ing at how many more there
were to go before I'd be done so
I thought.
Now, we've just lived with an-
other time of waiting to "get the
show on the road" Christmas.
Finally, Christmas has come!
The question can still be asked;
"What will Christmas mean in five


years?" and like everyone anxious
for the coming of the big day, they
probably haven't though much
beyond the day.
Christmas is about the coming
of the Lord and all that it meant
It is the end of hopes for cen-
turies;, finally the big day has ar-
rived.
The first step was taken by
God; now we are to live out its'
promise.
Things will be different now;
there is a new relationship be-
tween God and humanity; It will
mean that hereafter there is a rea-
son to hope, a reason to believe
that the future will be better than
the past, and that things will be
different in'the days to come.
Yes, the world is still not per-
fect; news seems to be going


from bad to worse, tragedies and
problems are still with us.
There is also the promise of
Christmas; with all that is wrong,
God has sent His Son to make
things right.
Why should we believe that?
The history of people before
the coming of the Lord is a history
of people that lived in hope.
Someday there would be
peace on earth; someday there
would be salvation, someday
there would be a new start for hu-
manity, and it will all come to us.
People could look to the past,
as bleak and dark as it often was;
and see that God was there all
along; guiding, leading, protect-
ing, sheltering, helping, giving
hope.
The Old Testament message


was that in spite If everything,
God's faith made it through, and
He never betrays His faithful.
His promise to send one to
bring this message once and for
all is what we celebrate at Christ-
mas; "For God so loved that he
gave his only begotten Son that
whosoever believes in Him would
not perish but have eternal life
(John 3:16)."
Christmas is the celebration of
God's "getting the show on the
road" so that in five years, or five
decades or five lifetimes, or here-
after, His people would see their
hopes become reality, The "big
day" has arrived; it is only the first
day of all the days to come.
Hereafter, we are to share with
God in a better life and world,
and finally in eternity with Him


because of what has begun on
Christmas.
We look back on those special
days but they are only the begin-
ning of promises to be lived out
for our lifetimes.
Christmas is like that; a spe-
cial day whose fulfillment is to
be lived out by us for this lifetime
and beyond.
Thanks be to God for all that
He gave us with the sending of
His Son, and the life it brings to us
now and always.
May each of you have a Blessed
Christmas; a time of celebration,
joy and hope.
May the One who came to
share an earthly home bless your
homes and families at this sacred
season.


A solitary soldier's special Christmas story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
As we celebrate Christma
with our families, let us not fo:
get those men and women wh
are away from home, doing the
job that we might enjoy our free
doms.
We have enjoyed so muc
freedom for so long that some
times we might be in danger (
taking for granted the sacrificial
costs of preserving it.
This Christmas season, let u
'remember our Marines, Arm
Soldiers, Coast Guards, Air Forc
Navy and Special Forces, bot
past and present.
Remember also our "first n
spenders" here at home, and a


those special people who sacrifice
their time, comfort, and some-
times their very lives for us that
s we might be able to live our lives
r- in relative safety and security.
o? May we often stop and think
ir and pray for these special heroes.
e- May we in some small way try
to pay a tiny bit of what we owe
h to those who have kept us free.
e- If possible, write a note or give
of verbal thanks to let them know
al we appreciate their sacrifices, as
well as the sacrifices their families
Is make.
ty And most of all, let us pray
e, constantly for them during this
h holiday season, and continue to
bathe them in prayer in the days
e- ahead.
Ill In honor of our soldiers every-


where, this Christmas season, I
would like to share this poem, "A
Soldiers Christmas Story," which
I have been told was written by
Major Bruce Lovely.
"Twas the night before Christ-
mas, he lived all alone, in a one
bedroom house made of plaster
and stone.
I had come down the chimney
with presents to give, and to see
just'who in this home did live.
I looked all about, a strange
sight I did see: No tinsel, no pres-
ents, not even a tree.
No stocking by mantle, just
boots filled with sand.
On the wall hung pictures of
far distant lands.
With medals and badges,
awards of all kinds; a sober


thought came into my mind.
For this house was different, it
was dark and dreary.
I found the home of a soldier,
once I could see clearly.
The soldier lay sleeping; silent,
alone curled up on the floor in
this one bedroom home.
The face was so gentle, the
room in disorder not how I pic-
tured a United States soldier.
Was this the hero of whom I
just read? Curled up on a.poncho,
the floor for a bed?
I realized the families that I
had seen this night, owed their
lives to these soldiers who were
willing to fight.
Soon round the world the chil-
dren would play, and grown-ups
would celebrate a bright Christ-


mas day.
They all enjoyed freedom each
month of the year because of
soldiers like the one lying here.
I couldn't help wonder how
many lay alone on a cold Christ-
mas eve in a land far from home.
The very thought brought a
tear to my eye.
I dropped to my knees and
started to cry.
The soldier awakened and I
heard a rough voice, "Santa don't
cry, this life is my choice. I fight
for freedom. I don't ask for more.
My life is my God, my country, my
corps.
The soldier rolled over and
drifted to sleep.
I couldn't control it, I contin-
ued to weep.


I kept watch for hours, so si-
lent and still.
We both shivered: from the
cold night's chill.
I didn't want to leave on that
cold dark night this guardian of
honor so willing to fight.
Then the soldier rolled over,
and with a voice soft and pure,
whispered, "Carry on Santa it's
Christmas and all is secure."
One look at my watch, and I
knew he was right.
"Merry Christmas my friend,
and to all a good night."


'Let's Serve God and Defeat The Devil in '09!'


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
One of the Old Testament
Prophets wrote "They call good
evil and evil good."
I think that certainly describes
many in our society today.
Our nation will regain its great-
ness and' strength only by restor-
irg the validity of the Bible as the
+- eternal message from God;
The strength of the nation will
be found in its commitment and


obedience to the Bible as the in-
spired and authoritative Word of
God!
Someone has attributed the
following to Paul Harvey. The
message is entitled "IF I WERE
THE DEVIL" and this is what it
said:
*I would gain control of the
most powerful nation in the
world.
*1 would delude their minds
into thinking that they had come
from man's effort instead of God's
blessing.


*1 would promote an attitude
of loving things and using people,
instead of the other way around.
*I would dup entire states into
relying on gambling for their state
revenue.
*1 would convince people that
character is not an issue when it
comes to leadership.
*I would make it legal to take
the life of unborn babies.
*I would make it socially ac-
ceptable to take one's own life,
and invent machines to make it
convenient.


*I would cheapen human life
as much as possible, so that the
lives of animals are valued more
than human beings.
*I would take God out of the
schools, where even the mention
of His name was grounds for a
lawsuit.
*I would get control of the
media, so that every night I could
pollute the mind of every family
member for my agenda.
*I would attack the.family, the
backbone of any nation.
*I would make divorce accept-


able and easy, even fashionable,
'because if the family crumbles, so
does the nation.
*I would compel people to ex-
press their most depraved fanta-
sies on canvas and movie screens,
and I would call it art.
*I would convince the world
that people are born homosexu-
als, and that their lifestyles should
be accepted and marveled.
*I would convince the people
that right and wrong are deter-
mined by a few who call them-
selves authorities, and refer to


their agenda as "politically cor-
rect."
*I would persuade the people
that the church is irrelevant and
out of date, and that the Bible is
for the naive.
*1 would dull the minds of
Christians to make them believe
that prayer is not important and
that faithfulness and obedience
are optional.
*I guess I would leave things
pretty much the way they are
right now!
That's why we need a revival!

tobacco product, and 80 percent
had not tried marijuana in the last
30 days.
Luckily, secondary students re-
port in the survey that.their num-
ber one source for believing facts
and learning information about
alcohol and drugs comes from
their parents. This statistic can
"empower the parents", and give
them a reason to frequently coun-
cil their own children.
Julie Bennett-Barrow, Semi-
nole Tribe prevention specialist,
mentioned a powerful tool that
the family can use as .a way to
unite, teach and aid one another.
The family and extended family
can sit down fives times a week
to share food at the table. It can


be done at dinner, lunch or break-
fast. It can bring the generations
together. Parents can make ob-
servations about their children
and talk a little bit.
Pastor Darrel Branham, New
Hope Baptist Church, agreed that
the use of food sharing can bripg
people together.
John Varady, Lake Placid, was
a guest speaker from Heartland
Educational Consortium, which
serves six school districts in the
area. He works specifically with
alcohol abuse reduction. Mr.
Varady mentioned that SADD has
changed since its introduction.
The letters now stand for Students
Against Destructive Decisions. He
informed attendees about the
Community Anti Drug Coalition
of America (CADCA), and how it
can aid community coalitions like
the one Glades County has now.
The consortium in Lake Placid


can be reached at 863-531-0444
ext. 209.
All in all, the survey that county
students took revealed that most
of them did not use alcohol, to-
bacco or marijuana.
"Most Glades County students
are making good decisions," said
Angelica Pena, health department
instructor and coalition leader.
Glades County Drug Free Co-
alition was formed to promote
awareness and advocacy for the
purpose of reducing the harmful
impact of tobacco, alcohol and
other drug abuse or addiction in
youth and families. For more in-
formation, or to find out about to-
bacco cessation classes, call Ms.
Pena at 863-946-0707.

Santa
Continued From Page 1

the youngest children saw the
older ones smile and get on San-
ta's lap, it was easier to get more
smiles from all the kids.
Jenny Rich, childhood center
director, and all the teachers and
aides had a master plan of orga-
nizing so many young students.
Everyone got to sing, or pose for
a photo, and eat pretty cupcakes;
and best of all, every student got
to hear a story read out loud by an
Island Walk volunteer. This is the
purpose of RIF, to show children
that reading a book is a pleasure.
Finally, the gift-books were
ready for children to choose and
take home. Teachers and aides
spread all the books out on the
tables and children were free to
choose books of their choice.
The students sang a few songs for
the volunteers, teachers and visi-
;, tors; then they handled the books
lovingly and opened them to see
which would be their favorites.
It turned out to be a success-
ful,,event at RCMA'Glades Early
Childhood Center. Students were
lucky. They got lo see Santa, listen
to stories, and receive gift-books.
According to Mike Bokor,


RCMA community relations direc-
tor, since 1994, more than 180,000
free books have been distributed
to RCMA children through the
RIF program. Book distributions
occur three times per year. More
than 42,000 parents and other
volunteers have participated in
RIF book distributions as story-
tellers, readers, book characters
and clowns. American Express
and Macy's and the U.S. Congress
contribute to the RIF program.
Last year, Macy's recognized
RCMA for its literacy efforts and
provided five extensive multicul-
tural classroom libraries.,
RCMA was founded in 1965 by
Mennonite Church volunteers in
the Redlands farming area near
Homestead, southern Miami-
Dade County, to provide a safe,
nurturing environment for chil-
dren while their parents worked
in the fields. The Redlands Chris-
tian Migrant Association helps
children of migrant and rural
low-income families to grow up
reading by involving them in in-
novative literacy programs. For
more information go to www.
rcma.org. The local school is
next to Moore Haven Elementary
School, and can be reached at

FWS released the



Interagency Florida


Panther Response Team An-
nual Report: 2007-2008
:The U.S. Fish, and Wildlife
Service loday released the Inter-
agency Florida Panther Response
Team Annual Report: 2007-2008
that summarizes human-panther
interactions investigated by the
Interagency Florida Panther Re-
sponse Team between July 2007
- June 2008.
The Response Team includes
biologists, law enforcement offi-
cers and other agency representa-
tives from the U.S. Fish and Wild-
life Service, National Park Service
and the Florida Fish and Wildlife
Conservation Commission. As
more and more people move into
panther habitat, the potential for


human-panther: interactions in-
creases.
Therefore, the Team devel-1
oped a plan to promote public
safety and panther conservation.
Reported interactions included
panther sightings, encounters, an
unconfirmed incident, and mul-
tiple domestic animal depreda-
tions.
Additionally, the report sum-
marizes outreach and educa-
tional efforts completed by the
team, partnering organizations,
and local government agencies to
provide the public with the infor-
mation and tools they need to live
and recreate in panther habitat.
