FWC opens



creek trail


Fort Center Trail
begins at
Fisheating Creek
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

FISHEATING CREEK -- The
Florida Wildlife Commission,
(FWC) celebrated the unique
ecological and historic features
of Fisheating Creek by opening
a new interpretive trail named
Fort Center. The Jan. 10 event,
"The Creek Through Time",
was well attended.
Fisheating Creek is the only
natural tributary that flows into
Lake Okeecheobee. This could
be part of the fascination that
inspires so many people who
love the creek's natural wildlife
community and Old Florida his-
tory. The creek waters originate
in western Highlands County
and placidly flow through
Glades County into the big lake
on its west bank.
The FWC introduced- visi-
tors -to the newly created Fort
Center Trail which is located at
Fisheating Creek Wildlife Man-
agement Area off S.R. 78 on Ba-
nana Grove Road by Lakeport.
At one time a fort was built here
during the Seminole Wars of the


early 1800's. Visitors were able
to view cypress wetlands, prai-
ries and hammocks when they
took an interpretive hayride.
Biologists, archeologists,
historians and descendants of
early settlers were on hand to
inform and entertain partici-
pants with canoe tours, archery
and primitive weapon demon-
strations, animal tracking, bird-
irig clues, and edible plant tast-
ings. People also had a chance
,to record the oral history of the
time they or their ancestors
spent in the sparsely populated
wetlands.
Nancy Dale, author, pre-
sented an informal talk of cow
hunters, early settlers, Native
Americans and animal life. Her
books focus on. these topics
and she introduced visitors to
David Thielen, Glades County
resident, who told a chilling
story of a hungry alligator.
Mr. Thielen recalled how he
grew up around the creek. He
and his young friends had al-
ways fished and played in the
waters here. Once, after return-
ing from a tour in Vietnam, he
was swimming in the creek and
witnessed how a 12 foot alliga-
tor grabbed a thirsty cow by the
muzzle and pulled it under wa-
ter in order to drown it before

Students


receive plants


Plants For School
program began in
1977
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- Fifth
grade students in Glades Coun-
ty received house plants as part
of Plants for School program
that is conducted annually. The
Glades County Garden Club
would like to introduce young
people to the rewards of grow-
ing plants. They furnished the
plants, and delivered them
to Moore Haven Elementary
School, West Glades School
and to charter school, Pemay-
etv Emahakv.


The Plants for School pro-
gram is a hands-on learning ex-
perience. It was first begun in
1977 for fifth graders. Accord-
ing to club members, the ex-
perience can influence young
people to take better care of
their environment; and they
continue to enjoy house plants
or gardening for a lifetime.
Members give each local
fifth grader a live potted plant
in January. The student is giv-
en exact instructions on how
to care for the plant. After six
weeks of tender loving care, a
contest is held in February, and
judged by the Glades County
Garden Club members. First
place winner receives $10,
second place receives $8, third

Winter festival set for Jan. 31


Catfish dinner will,
benefit fire dept.
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
BUCKHEAD RIDGE -- Fried
catfish is the big attraction at
the Buckhead Ridge Winter
Festival coming up Jan. 31.
This marks its 17th year at the
Glades County community on
the northwest bank of Lake
Okeechobee. The event is a
fund raiser for the volunteer fire
department which needs new
equipment and funds for train-
ing new members.
Buckhead Ridge is a large


fishing village platted within
a neighborhood of back door
canals that make this an ideal
place for serious fishermen and
fair-weather fishermen. The ca-
nals link community members
together because they can drift
by and visit a friend..
The summer rains revived
the big lake and local water-
ways which had been bone dry
during a drought. Boating ac-
cess is much better than it was
a year ago.
Buckhead Ridge is one of
Glades County's largest com-
munities in the winter season,
and it is located off S.R. 78 just
south of Okeechobee and north
of Brighton. The fishing com-
munity has a direct access to


Lake Okeechobee on its main
waterway, the Pearce'Canal.
The Glades County com-
munity is also a duck and hog
hunters' haven. The city of
Okeechobee is five miles north
and provides Buckhead Ridge
residents with restaurant and
shopping destinations. The
Seminole community of Brigh-
ton, to the south, has a casino
and rodeo performances.
The fishing village popula-
tion is not as large during the
summer months when winter
residents are gQne, but there is
still a local network of full time
residents who keep an eye on
things; and the Citizens On Pa-

Significant USDA Juice Purchase


Significant amount of
OJ purchased

INI Florida:- Florida Citrus
Mutual announced today that the
U.S. Department of Agriculture
(USDA) plans to purchase ap-
proximately $26 million of orange
juice to be donated to child nutri-
tion and other domestic food as-
sistance programs.
In September, Mutual asked
the USDA to purchase a signifi-
cant amount of OJ to help reduce
inventories and boost grower re-
turns. In its request, Mutual told
the USDA of the rising production
costs, lower prices and mammoth
inventories now facing Florida cit-
rus growers. The USDA commit-


ment equates to about 7.3 million
gallons.
"In addition to helping one of
the country's great agriculture
industries, this significant USDA
purchase will provide a healthy
beverage for students, moth-
ers and their children across the
United States," said Michael W.
Sparks, executive VP/CEO of Flor-
ida Citrus Mutual. "We would
like to thank Secretary Schafer."
"U.S. Rep. Adam Putnam was
instrumental in this process and
we would like to thank him for
his leadership and support."
The USDA purchases high-
quality food products each year
for a variety of uses including the
national school lunch program,
the school breakfast program, the


summer food service program,
the nutrition program for the'el-
derly and the emergency food as-
sistance program.
With today's announcement,
the USDA will survey potential re-
cipients to determine how much
product will be accepted. Then it
will seek the lowest overall cost
through a public bid process.
The Florida citrus industry

nomic impact, employing nearly
76,000 people, and covering more

Installation of constitutional officers
A PLEASANT EVENT: Kudos to Glades County elected officials for
hosting the impressive event last evening! From the swearing-in by a per-
sonable visiting circuit judge to the splendid array of refreshments, it was
enjoyed by all. The music was exceptionally enjoyable and inspiring,
both patriotic and spiritual. Wow, how many times can we say we really
enjoyed ourselves at a political event!? Congratulations to: Clerk of Court

Motorcyclist Killed
BE KIND TO US: My husband and I have a Harley Davidson. We
live in Palm Beach County but also have a place in Buckhead Ridge.
Riding around the lake on the weekends is a very popular hobby for
those of us who love to ride. People please pay attention to motor-
cycles. Share the road with us, don't run us off of them. We ride for
pleasure. We spend our money in your establishments. We are good
for your economy. Please watch for motorcycles. I saw the accident
that killed the rider and injured his wife on Sunday, Jan. 4. It was grue-
some. Then I found out it was my friend's sister and brother-in-law.
The image is forever burned into my mind. Please, please watch for
motorcycles.

10 vehicles involved in Belle Glade pileup


Semi-truck, driving
eastbound on S.R. 80,
reportedly collides
into moving train

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida.
WESTERN PALM BEACH
COUNTY Foggy conditions on
Monday morning made for a se-
ries of ugly vehicle crashes on
State Road 80 near Belle Glade.
According to the Florida High-
way Patrol (FHP), a semi-truck,
carrying a load of sand, slammed
into a moving train at about 9:05
a.m.
Officials said that 50-year-old
Lazaro I. Perez, of Hialeah, was
driving eastbound on S.R. 80 as he
tried to cross the railroad tracks.
The semi-truck reportedly
made contact with a 2008 Ford
Edge sport utility vehicle, driven
by 35-year-old Nichole Marie
Sweet.
The hit was reportedly made


after the woman was waiting for
the train to pass.
The accident, which took place
at S.R. 80 and Hatton Highway,
was part of a 10-vehicle pileup,
which ended up being six sepa-
rate crashes, officials said.
In the incident, it was revealed
that two dump trucks, two semi-
trucks, two standard pickup
trucks, a flatbed and a sedan were
among the vehicles involved.
Fortunately, only the semi-
truck driver suffered' injuries as a
result of the crash.
It was revealed that the driver's
injuries were not life-threatening
after being transported to St.
Mary's Hospital by ground due to
the fog.
The woman in the crash suf-
fered no reported injuries.
I FHP Lieutenant Tim Frith, driv-
ing westbound on S.R. 80, said
that on his way to the scene, he'
witnessed the fog being 'very
dense and sporadic' from Semi-
nole Pratt-Whitney Road in Loxa-
hatchee to west of 20 Mile Bend.
"It was like patchy areas of fog


that was moving," Frith said.
At times, Frith was forced to
drop his speed to 35 miles per
hour (mph), depending on the
fog conditions.
That's 30 mph lower than the
posted speed limit on the high-
way, which is set at 65 mph.
Driving at a safe speed, the
FHP lieutenant did not arrive to
the scene of the crash until 9:45
a.m., about 40 minutes after the
collision occurred.
What he witnessed was a
loaded corn truck, along with two
dump truck, that flipped over on
the highway.
"That was just amazing what I
saw," Frith said.
"When I drove to the scene,
it was foggy the entire time," the
lieutenant continued. '
"My initial thought was that
anytime I receive a call involving a
semi versus a moving train, there
are usually serious injuries or even
death as a result," he said.
"There were multiple trucks
involved and to find out there was
only one person hurt, we were


very surprised."
The visibility distance, due to
the dense fog, was reportedly at
zero miles on Monday morning.
"People couldn't even see the
truck crossing the railroad," Frith
said.
"They couldn't see the red
flashing lights because the visibil-
ity was that bad."
Due to the nature of the clean-
up that followed, officials said it
took until about 10:40 a.m. to re-
open the eastbound lanes to S.R.
80.
Once those lanes were open,
S.R. 80 was converted into a two-
lane highway.
The westbound lanes were
still closed because crews were
working on removing the debris
and accident remains from the
roadway.
It reportedly took until about 1
p.m. to clear the vehicles involved
from S.R. 80.
Afterwards, crews allowed for
the westbound lanes to re-open.

Mayaimis Indians: Legacy of silver, gold


Treasures in the
Glades

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
The sun's western flight ush-
ered in the enveloping twilight
that slowly engulfed the last ves-
tiges of daylight in the Glades.
Imposing cypress trees that
dominated the horizon became
mere, shadowy vassals to the in-
vasive night.
. The passage of night was in-
terrupted by a fiery, red glow that
pulsated from an ancient oak
hammock.
In the deep recesses of the
hammock,' bright, orange flames
hungrily devoured large hewn
logs that were lying on a sloping,
hill of sand.
The light from the fire shone
like a beacon, illuminating the
surrounding darkness
Inside the sphere of firelight,
enslaved Spaniards toiled fever-
ishly, digging a large open pit.
The' exhausted, sweat-
drenched figures glistened like
polished ivory in the firelight,
while shadowy figures, likened to
mahogany statues, guarded the
fringes of the sand mound.
The fire had burned to hot
white embers when the weary
slaves, lying prostrate in the sand,
were stirred by a sudden breeze
that blew life into the fire's dying
embers.
A burst of flames revealed
stacks of glittering gold ingots,
and for a moment the eyes of the


motionless men were enraptured
by the gold's warm glow.
The quote, "The love of mon-
ey is the root of all evil" has merit
in this fictitious story.
It is time to take "A Walk in
The Past" and hear some tall tales
about the curse of gold and bur-
ied treasures in the Glades.
Christopher Columbus, sailed
under the king of Spain in 1492, to
find a watery route to the Spice Is-
lands, located in the East Indies.,
Instead, he found a world
new to the Europeans, a world
he called the West Indies 'and a
people he named Indians.
Spaniards found gold in the
West Indies instead of spices, and
its gleam was infectious.
The allurement of gold and sil-
ver drew thousands of Europeans
from all walks of life to the West
Indies.
The West Indies were mined
of its precious metals, and many.
of the Indian inhabitants were
worked to death in the gold and
silver mines.
This infectious greed spread to
the mainland.
Cortes conquered the Aztec
Empire, and later Pizarro con-
quered the Inca Empire.
An untold wealth of gold, sil-
ver and emeralds were plundered
from these empires and shipped
to Spain.
Spanish ships, called galleons,
carried the plundered treasures
back to Spain.
Ships sailing from Mexico to
Cuba sailed down the west coast
of Florida.,
All ships sailing to Spain fol-


lowed the Gulf Stream along the
east coast of Florida.
Hundreds of ships caught in
storms along Florida's coasts
floundered or wreaked.
Florida Indians looted the
ships treasures and killed or en-
slaved the castaways.
Like the Spaniards, the Florida
Indians found the gleam of gold
to be infectious.
The Calusas Indians demand-
ed these treasures as tribute from
tribes living along the east coast.
The Indians had no bean coun-
ters in those days, so the Calusas
got short changed.
Some Ais. Indians who found
gold treasure hid and buried it,
not only from the prying eyes of
the Calusa, ,but also from their
own kinsmen.
Who could you trust with a
bowlful of gold?
The Calusa gave the Mayaimis
Indians on Lake Okeechobee
some of the tribute they collected
from those wily, Ais Indians living
on the east coast.
There were othei treasures
that found their way to the lake
from an early form of capitalism
called bartering.
We will never know how
much gold and silver was brought
to Lake Okeechobee, but we do
know the Mayaimis Indians had
the 15th, 16th and part of the 17th
century to barter for treasures.
Listed are some tall tales about
treasures found around Lake
Okeechobee:
The treasure found at
Fort Center in the 1960s according


to Lawrence Wills, the famous
Lake Okeechobee historian, was
a Mother Lode.
He said, "There were heaps
and scads and slews of disc and
beads and pendants of 24 carat
gold, medallions, Inca ornaments,
and solid bars of gold and silver.
There were gold and silver or-
naments and figures to make your
eyes bug out." (True story.)
Armor breast plate found
in Glades County. (True story.)
A six-inch golden lizard
found in Hendry County. I read
the book entitled "Conquest of
Mexico," which is the journal of a
Spanish soldier, who fought with
Cortes.
He states several times in the
book that they received golden
lizards as tribute from the Aztec
Indians.
I also located a golden lizard in
a museum. (True story.)
Golden plates found in
Glades County.
I researched gold plates and
found journals that recorded the
production of gold plates in Mexi-
co and shipments to Spain.
Treasures found at the
Chosen Mounds are described by
Lawrence Wills.
He said, "A canon ball, ship's
spike, Spanish olive bottles, glass
beads and gold and silver orna-
ments were found.
A Ft. Myers paper on March 9,
1905 tells of some gator hunters
who found Spanish coins, silver
and gold beads the size of olives."
(True Stories.)
Gold nuggets found in
South Bay. (True story.)


Gold and silver beads
found at different locations in
Hendry County. (True stories.)
Gold coins found by
gator hunters in Hendry County.
(True story.)
A cache of gold coins
found by a deer hunter in Hendry
County.
These treasure stories and oth-
ers have become Glades folklore
over the years.
Some are true and others are
legends.
No doubt there are countless
treasure stories that have never
been told in the Glades because
silence is indeed golden.
I wrote this article "Treasures
in the Glades" because it is part of
our Glades Heritage.
Mounds must always be re-
spected.
It is a felony to dig in mounds
and rightfully so.
Treasure hunting on state
properties is illegal and a felony.
Private properties should al-
ways be respected.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

Bronson warns increase



in wildfire threat


Asking public's
help to minimize
the risk

INI Florida Florida Agri-
culture and Consumer Ser-
vices Commissioner Charles
H. Bronson today advised
residents that below average
rainfall for the last four. to
five months has significantly
increased the state's .wildfire
risk.
The torrential rain associ-
ated with Tropical Storm Fay
last summer has been all but
pffset by the recent drought.
In fact, the Keetch-Byram
Drought Index, which mea-
sures available soil moisture
and runs from 0 (saturated)
to 800 (desert-like), currently
stands at 511 more than
double the normal drought
index this time of year.
"We are asking both resi-


dents and visitors alike to
be careful with any outdoor
burning and to check with
their local officials to deter-
mine if there is a burn ban in
effect in their area," Bronson
said.
During-the past year, 2,894
wildfires have burned nearly
106,000 acres in Florida.
To minimize the wildfire
risk, Bronson is asking resi-
dents and visitors to do their
part, including:

Never leave any fire unat-
tended.

*Clear an area to bare soil
for campfires, and be sure
they are put out before you
leave.

*Report any suspicious
fire by calling 911.

*Do not burn yard waste


during dry, windy conditions.
Do not toss cigarettes or
other lighted materials out of
car windows.


Moreover, Bronson en-
courages residents to pro-
tect their homes from fires
by clearing leaves and pine.
needles from the roof and
gutters, removing dead vege-
fation from around the home
and trimming trees and limbs
within 15 foot of a chimney.
For more information on
fire prevention tips, as well
as burning rules and regula-
tions, visit the Florida Division
ofForestry's website at www.

Division of Forestry office.


Seniors shine at Outback Bowl


A total of 18 players


from four teams were

selected

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
GREENACRES Bo Schlecter had
an opportunity to sdore a comeback
victory in the Jan. 10 Outback Bowl
All-Star Game.
However, the opposing defense
prevented that from happening.
With just three minutes left in the
game, the American ,quarterback
(Glades Day) tried to engineer a drive
that was marred by a crucial penalty.
Down 15-10 at American's 30 yard
line, Schlecter threw a 15-yard pass
completion, an out route to Pahokee
receiver Dexter Holmes.
However, the play was nullified
due to a.holding call that drew a 15-
yard penalty.
After three more opportunities -to
gain field position, the Georgia State-
bound quarterback just couldn't find
any open receivers, which effectively
ended the game.
The final score stood at that mar-
gin in favor of the National All-Star
team, which featured outgoing se-
nior from central and southern Palm
Beach County.
"The National team just came
with some big stops on defense," said
American linebacker, Hygens Sucess
(Glades Central).
Bill Powers, the American head
coach, was please with how Schlecter
kept the team in the game.
"I thought Bo threw the ball pret-
ty good," Powers said, noting that
Schlecter didn't commit any turnovers
in the game.
"He made some good decisions in
a close game."
Schlecter was the only American
quarterback available for the game.
The American MVP was Jupiter
Christian outgoing senior running
Austin Lewis, who rushed for Ameri-
can's only touchdown of the game.
Lewis scored on a 4-yard run in the
second quarter to cut National's lead
to 7-6.
That was before Jupiter kicker
Doug Parker converted on the extra
point, enabling the game to be knot-
ted up at 7-7.
Later in the second frame, Nation-
al had a prime opportunity to retake
the lead.
It came after National had a 80-
yard kickoff return returned to Ameri-
can's 20 yard line.
After American drew an unsports-
manlike call on the play, National
needed only 10 yards to reach the
scoring play.
On National's scoring drive, Amer-
ican drew two penalties.

Practices for the Outback Bowl
were held from Jan. 5-6 in Port St.
Lucie, while Glades Day was the host
school from Jan. 7-9.
The game was held at John I.
Leonard High School in Greenacres.
Notes: There were a total of 18
area players selected for the Outback
Bowl, though two of them did not suit
up for the game,
Clewiston had three players select-
ed (Darris Hughes, Adam Trevino and
Troy Kornya)
Glades Central had six players.
selected (Robert Ferguson, Florida
State-bound Henry Orelus, Rupert
Bryan, Artavious Dowdell, McCloude
and Sucess)
Glades Day had three players
selected (De'Andres Jackson, Alex
Mann and Schlecter).
Jackson, the Gators wide receiver/
defensive back, did not participate .in
the game due to a weekend college
visit at Georgetown University.
Pahokee had six players selected
(Donald Hester, University of Buffalo-
bound Carlos.Lammons, Byrd, Hick-
man, Holrhes and Norman Griffith).
Griffith, who was tragically mur-
dered a few months ago, was hon-
ored during the pre-game festivities.
Jackie Griffith was presented with
a Outback Bowl All-Star jersey in her
son's honor by New England Patriots
tight end Heath Evans.
"The Muck gets represented very
well every year," said Mike May, the
Outback Bowl All-Star Game orga-
nizer.
"Football is a big fabric of life in the
Muck," he continued.
"The talent level is always there,
but I think the talent level in other ar-
eas, like the Treasure Coast, is getting
better each year."
The American team consists of
players from the Muck area, north-
ern Palm Beach County, the Treasure
Coast and Okeechobee.
MVP voting is selected by the me-
dia and area coaches who did not
participate in the Outback Bowl All-
Star Game.
"It's like a cherry on top of the
cake," May said.
"It's a nice honor."

Swider, of Spanish River, scored on a
1-yard run.
National's Antoine Kirkland (Olym-
pic Heights) converted on a two-point
conversion run, putting his team up
15-7.
At halftime, National led American
by that score.
"National had a short field to work
with on that scoring drive," Powers
said.
That also occurred in the first quar-
ter, when National quarterback Tyler
Wilhelm (Seminole Ridge) scored on
a 4-yard run to put his team up 7-0.
It was made possible after Nation-
al's special teams blocked American's
punt in the first quarter.
National needed just 30 yards to
score on the drive.
"The special team proved the dif-
ference in the game," said Bill Pow-
ers, the American team head coach
(Jupiter Christian).
"Hats off to the National Team,
they made the big plays when they
had to."
Interestingly, the running game
and defense on both teams were on
high display in this low-scoring affair.
Playing in a few series at line-
'backer, Sucess was surprised by the
outcome.
"I expected the game to have a
lot more offense, but both defenses
played very good," Sucess said.
Trio of running backs for the Amer-
ican Team were Clewiston's Darris.
Hughes, Jupiter Christian's Austin
Lewis and Glades Central's Antonio
McCloude.
All three running backs, Powers
said, played equally throughout the
contest.
Lewis, who was named Ameri-
can's Most Valuable Player (MVP) led
all three rushers with nine carries for
104 yards and a touchdown.
Hughes, who is' Clewiston's first
2,000-yard rusher, added 84 rushing
yards in the All-Star game.
American's other score came on
a field goal by Jupiter kicker Doug
Parker, who connected on a 34-yard
field goal in the third quarter to cut
National's lead to 15-10.
Both team had just four posses-
sions in the second half of the con-
test.
For American's defense, the Paho-
kee defensive back duo of N.C. State-
bound Jarvis Byrd and Willie Hick-
man each recorded an interception.,
Both picks came off Wilhelm in
the first half, including Byrd's inter-
ception grab on National's opening
possession.
Swider was named the Nationalb
team MVP of the game.
"We didn't have anyone trying to
be prima donnas," Sucess said.
"Everyone just worked together'
the whole week of practice and the
game."

Treasure hunters are coming


Modern day treasure
hunters are coming

days. During this free event, locals
will have a chance to talk to world
renowned antique and collectible
experts, and it's all free!
The Treasure Hunters Road-
show is on an 18 month national
treasure hunt and will be digging
in Clewiston for five days from
Jan. 20 to Jan 24. at the Best West-
ern of Clewiston on 1020 W. Sug-
arland Hwy. Hours will be from 9
a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday through
Friday and 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on
Saturday.
Recent finds include a Civil War
cache in an attic, over 1.2 million
dollars worth of silver bars buried
on an'Illinois farm, Confederate
money hidden in the walls of a
residence uncovered during a
remodel, Abraham Lincoln hand-
written thank you letter, express-
ing gratitude for a night's stay
while traveling to Chicago, and
much more.

Let's find out toget1.er. You or your
next door neighbor just might be
the next to find a. jackpot in the
attic. Start digging now and be
ready to have some fun and make'
some money.
Your region is the next stop on
The Treasure Hunters Roadshow
nationwide tour. During this
event, our treasure hunters are
hoping to see item# such as coins
and paper currency issued prior
to 1965, toys, dolls, trains, vintage
jewelry, old and modern musical
instruments, war memorabilia,
gold and silver jewelry, costume
jewelry, advertising memorabilia,
swords, knives; daggers, and the
unusual!
Collectors are very serious


about their hobby; so serious that
they will pay a lot of money for the
items they are looking for. Nearly
all coins, vintage jewelry, musical
instruments and toys made prior
to 1965 are highly sought after by
collectors. The Treasure Hunters
Roadshow is a place where any-
one in your community can con-
nect with collectors from around
the globe. Our treasure hunters
make offers based on what our
collectors are willing to pay. Then
when someone decides to sell,
they get paid on the spot and our
treasure hunters send the item to
the collector at their expense.
Gold' will also. be purchased
during this event. Gold is trading
at over $800 per ounce, a 25 year
high. Have fun with your search.
Empty your jewelry box of bro-
ken jewelry, dig out your old teeth
containing dental gold, find your
gold coins, gold bars, etc. Gold is
traded on the stock market and
prices fluctuate daily. We will buy
gold based on the day's current
Sold value. Don't miss out. Make
plans now to attend the Treasure
Hunters Roadshow.
How it works:
Gather items you think the In-
ternational Collectors Association
might be interested in buying.
Bring those items. to the event; no
appointment is necessary. Road-
show representatives will exam-
ine your items and determine
what they are willing to pay. If
you decide to accept the offer to
buy, you will be paid on the spot;
Items of great interest include'
pottery marked Roseville, Hull,
Rookwood, etc. Toys made be-
fore 1965, trains, dolls, Hummels,
Lladros, Tiffany, art glass, clocks,
autographs, Civil War items, all
war memorabilia, Hot wheels,
World's fair items, and anything
unusual.
Gold and diamonds are prob-
ably the categories for people to
make the most money, "said Jeff
Parsons. "Gold is currently trad-
ing'at over $900.00 per ounce, an
all-time high. People are amazed


at what we will pay them for a few
broken chains and mismatched
earrings. The diamond market is
red-hot right now. It's a seller's
market."
"Another exciting category is
pocket watches", he said. "You
would be surprised at how many
pocket watches we see at any
given show. Many times, we will
purchase over 1000 watches at a
single Roadshow. Some of the
manufacturer names we see most
often are Illinois, Elgin, Hamp-
den, South Bend and Hamilton.
However, all names are wanted.
Wristwatches are also sought af-
ter."
"Anybody have a coffee can
full of coins? You would be sur-
prised how many people do,"
said Archie Davis, a Roadshow
representative and collector. "It's
a great time to pull out those old
coins, silver prices are higher now
than they have been for over 25
years."
There are two considerations
when valuing coins. One is the
value of the metal, whether it is
gold or silver, -the second is the
numismatic or collecting value.
Most coins are worth more as
silver or gold, but rare coins can
have great value to collectors,
even in poor condition. "I encour-
age anybody with coins, whether
a couple or a vault full to visit the
Roadshow. Our collectors are se-
rious and will pay top dollar for all
types of coins."
The Roadshow has been tour-
ing since 1998 and has visited
over 1500 cities throughout the
United States and Canada. There
is no limit to the number of items
you can bring. Admission is free
and no appointment is needed.
During the Treasure Hunters
Roadshow, experts will be -on
hand to discuss and purchase all
types of U.S. coins and currency.
The Mint has operated several;
branch facilities since the first
Philadelphia Mint opened in 1792
in a building named "Ye Olde
Mint". Later, with the opening of
branch Mints came the need for


Mint marks. The Mint mark is an
identifying feature on the coin
to show its facility of origin. The
first of these branch Mints were
in Charlotte, North Carolina (1838
to 1861), Dahlonega, Georgia
(1838 to 1861) and New. Orleans,
Louisiana (1838 to 1909). Both
the Charlotte (C mint mark) and
Dahlonega (D mint mark) Mint
branches were opened to facili-
tate the conversion of gold depos-
its into coinage. These facilities
minted only gold coins.
Over the years, the Unites
States has operated number of
mint facilities.
The Civil War closed both the
Charlotte and Dahlonega Mints
permanently. The New Orleans
Mint (0 mint mark) closed at the
beginning of the Civil War (1861)
and did not re-open until the end
of reconstruction in 1879. During
its two stints as a Minting facility,
the New Orleans Mint produced
both gold and silver coinage in
eleven denominations.
Only ten different denomina-
tions were minted there at one
time such as the 1851 silver three-
cerit pieces, half dimes,, dimes,
quarters, half dollars, gold dollars,
quarter eagles, half eagles, eagles
and double eagles.
The Civil War
A new branch Mint was
opened in Carson City, Nevada in
1870. This facility operated until
1893 with a four year hiatus from
1885 to 1889. Similar to the Char-
lotte and Dahlonega branches, the
Carson City Mint (CC mint marks)
was opened to take advantage of
local precious metal deposits, in
the Carson case, a large vein of
silver. Though gold coins were
produced there,' no base metal
coins were.
Nevada Mint
A branch of the U.S. Mint (Ma-
nila Mint) was established in 1920
in Manila,. Philippines which was
then a U.S. colony. To date, the
Manila Mint is the only United
States mint established outside
of the continent. The manila mint
was responsible for producing
coins for the colony in one, five,
ten, twenty and fifty centavo de-
nominations. This branch was
in production from 1920 to 1922
and again from 1925 until the
outbreak of World War II in 1941.
Coins struck by this mint bear ei-
ther the M mint mark (for manila)
or none at all, similar to the Phila-
delphia Mint at that time.

If you're happy and you know it, wag your tail


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Most of us have sung at one
time or another, "If you're happy
and you know it, clap your hands.
If you're happy and you know it,
clap your hands. If you're happy
and you know it, then your face
will surely show it, if you're hap-
py and you know it, clap your
hands.
Sometimes, late at night,
my mind comes up with some


strange "what if's."
For instance, what if birds sang
the song? Would the song go, "If
you're happy and you know it,
flap your wings?" What if cats
sang it? "If you're happy and you
know it purr a lot?" purrrr-urrr.
For a dog to show that he or
she was happy I have little doubt.
My dog wags her tail excitedly
and with enthusiasm! "If you're
happy and you know it, wag your
tail. (swish-swish) If you're happy
and you know it, wag your tail.


(swish-swish) If you're happy
and you know it, then your tail
will surely show it, if you're hap-
py and you know it, wag your tail.
(swish-swish). What if we could
get happy people to swish their
tails? (I told you I come up with
some strange late night "what
if's"!)
I heard a story about a little
puppy that noticed that whenever
he was happy, his tail wagged, so
he thought he had discovered the
secret to happiness.


One day he shared the secret
of happiness with an older dog.
He said, "I have learned that the
best thing for a dog is to be happy,
and that happiness is in my tail.
So I am going to chase my tail;
and when I catch it, I shall have
happiness.
The old dog replied, "I too be-
lieve that happiness is a marvel-
ous thing for a dog, and that hap-
piness is in my tail.
But I have noticed that when-
ever I chase my tail, it keeps run-


ning away from me; but when I
go about my business, it follows
me wherever I go.
The Bible has a lot to say about
being happy. It doesn't say, "Hap-
py are they who have a lot of mon-
ey" or "Happy are they who live in
big houses and drive fancy cars."
It doesn't even say, "Happy are
they who only have good things
happen to them." What the Bible
does say is, "Happy are themerci-
ful, happy are the peacemakers,
happy are the pure in heart." The


Bible also says, "Happy is he who
trusts in the Lord."
Many of us are like the little
puppy chasing his tail -- trying to
find true happiness that is always
just out of our reach.
What we need to do is learn
that if we will just go about our
business and trust in the Lord,
happiness will follow us where-
ever we go.


Epiphany; Manifestation, Realization, Welcome to all!


By the Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
There was'a cartoon awhile
back which featured a young
couple opening their mail.
The young man turned to the
young woman and said "Hey, as
residents of the Western Hemi-
sphere, we're entitled to a dis-
count on a new car!"
I guess that would also include
about a half billion other resi-
dents, including you and I, too.
The real message is that ev-
eryone is included in the special
offer.
That's also the message of
this season of thevChurch year:
Epiphany.


The word means "Manifesta-
tion" and it is associated with the
magi, or wise men.
The reason is that the Lord
at His birth was "manifested" to
those Gentiles who appeared and
worshipped Him, gave Him gifts
and the refused to reveal His lo-
cation to Herod (Matthew 2:7ff)
when He is "manifested" to all
the world as God's Son.
These manifestations are the
beginnings of a life and ministry
which opens the doors to all of
humanity of the gifts that God
will bring to the world through
His Son.
The history of the Christian
Church as been a history of open-
ing doors to all of those who


would believe.
From the earliest of questions,
the Church has welcomed those
who were likely to think of them-
selves as being outside of God's
grace. (Acts 11), when it was ob-
vious that the gifts of God were
for all, even if they did not come
from the same spiritual traditions
as the first apostle.
It has been this opening of
doors that makes it possible
for virtually all of us to have the
works of God manifested in our
lives; that God has called us not
because of our lineage or ances-
try, or because we were inheritors
by birth of the faith first given, or
by any other thing than "being
residents of the Western, or East-


ern hemisphere!
As it is aptly expressed, (Ephe-
sians 2) that we have been given
God's grace no matter who we
are.
Comforting thought! It seems
that Jesus touch, ministered to,
and encountered all sorts of peo-
ple during His earthly life; those
whom others might have called
"unlikely candidates" or "hea-
then" or "outcast" or singerss."
It is by the grace of God that
you and I are able to be included
among the faithful' not our piety,
not our good works, not our heri-
tage, not our memorizing from
the Bible, not our place or stand-
ing among others; nothing but
God's grace.


A clergy colleague used to take
a can of shaving creme and emp-
ty it on a tray.
Just when his students thought
it was empty, he'd .push the cap
on more time, more shaving
creme would come out.
He'd ask if it was empty. Then
he'd push the cap again and more
would come out, and again and
again.
There was always more
"shave" in the an even when it
seemed empty.
"That's" he say, "what God's
grace is like just when we think
we've reached the end of God's
love for us, there is always still
more."
Beginning with the worship of


the Wise Men, the Baptism, the
early opening of doors among the
first recorded annals of the faith in
Acts, through the evangelism of
the whole world, there is no limit
to God's love and outreach.
Someone told us once to
imagine a box in our minds.. He
said "Now, double its size, now
double it again, and again, and
again, and again."
It could go on forever; we'd
only be limited by our abilities to
imagine.
"It's like God's love for all of
us... there is no end." We can
only celebrate the beginning of
our awareness of it; that's what
Epiphany is about.

Someone here has left you a fortune!


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First, Christian Church
A great Christian Scholar and
brother of my acquaintance, Don
DeWelt. who has now gone on to
his reward, wrote a tract, entitled,
"Someone died and left you a for-
tune." In the tract he says, There
was one who died for your sake
that you might inherit all the
riches of Heaven for eternity.
Galatians 1:4 "Who gave Him-
self for our sins that He might de-
liver us out of this present world."
I Peter 1:3-4 "...who according to
his great mercy began us again
unto a living hope by the resurrec-


tion of Jesus Christ from the dead,
unto an inheritance incorruptible
arid undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for
you." The death of Jesus Christ,
nearly 2,000 years ago, gives you
today the right of inheritance, pro-
vided you fulfill the terms of the
will He left. This fortune is FREE
and FREELY given.
Romans 8:12 "He that spared
not His own Son, but delivered
Him up for us all, how shall He
not also with Him freely give us
all things." It cost nothing but

Luke 13:3 "Except ye repent,
ye shall likewise petish." (Sorry
enough to quit sin.)
3.Confession. Matthew 10:32
"Everyone therefore who shall
confess me before men, him will
I confess before my Father." .
4. Baptism by immersion in
water. Acts 2:38 "And Peter said
unto them, repent and be bap-
tized every one of you in the name
of Jesus Christ unto the remission
of sins, and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit."
5.A Holy Life. I Peter 1:5 "But
like as He who called you is holy,
be ye yourselves also holy in all


manner of living." 6. Be a part of
the. Lord's Church. Acts 2:42 "And
they continued steadfastly in the
Apostles' doctrine, and in fellow-
ship, and in the breaking of bread
and in prayers."
If you fail to accept this gift of
eternal life you have no one to
blame but yourself .for "God is
not willing that any should perish
but that all should come to the
knowledge of repentance."
If you fail to accept God's gift
you must pay the penalty of your
own sin which is eternity in hell
with the devil and his angels.
Comply with the will and accept
your inheritance!

Students were given coleus
plants which are a standard house
plant for beginners. They are also
called Painted Nettle.
The club held its monthly
meeting Jan. 6, and welcomed
guest speaker Jim Scrivner. He
operates Scrivner's Garden Cen-
ter in Fort Myers, and has a wide
knowledge of plant species. He
brought several rose bushes to
show his audience. One variety
was called Perfume Delight, and
its fragrance was remarkable.
Mr. Scrivner commented that
rose bushes need 5-6 hours of di-
rect sunlight each day. They need
good drainage, but do not neglect
their need for water.
"You cannot let a rose bush
dry up because it will not be hap-


py again," he said.
Club members report that
Scrivner's Garden Center has one
of the finest collections of rose
bushes in south Florida.
Members asked many ques-
tions and he answered them all.
Some general instructions in-
cluded watering a plant before
cutting so it is fully hydrated; fish
emulsion is an excellent fertilizer;
standing water will suffocate a
plant's roots; and do not use lawn
fertilizer on citrus.
Mr. Scrivner mentioned that
it may help to get a solid ph test
on soil, and determine water con-
tent. Remember, three simple
things that plants need are loca-
tion, soil and water.
The garden club is making
plans to participate at the Ortona
Cane Grinding Festival on the first
Saturday in February.
The club meets the first Tues-
day of each month beginning in
October. The meetings begin at
10:30 a.m. in the public library in

Every year the Glades County Garden Club delivers plants to fifth graders for a program called Plants For School. Club mem-
ber and county commissioner, Donna Storter Long, brought coleus plants to students at charter school, Pemayetv Emahakv
in Brighton.

consumption. According to David
Thielen, the cow had been caught
off balance when it lowered its
head to drink, and he did not see
the alligator or cow rise back to
the surface.
Butch Wilson, Clewiston Mu-
seum director, joined in the dis-
cussion and related to the audi-
ence how gold artifacts of Spanish
and indigenous origins have been
discovered in this preserved area
and other sites surrounding Lake
Okeechobee. Wooden watercraft,
salvage from Spanish ships, and
Native American tools have also
been found and studied, accord-
ing to Mr. Wilson. Additionally, he


was able to record oral histories
that local and former residents
had of the creek basin.
The Jan.' 10 event was well
attended and included hayrides,
hands-on exhibits, and wild ed-
ible plants. Guests lectures were
also held by Mary Frances Turner
and Ken Meyers. Booths and vol-
unteer work were provided by
Calusa Nature Center, Save Our
Creeks, Big 0 Birding Extravagan-
za, Lykes Brothers, Great Florida
Birding Trail, Clewiston Museum,
Chinsegut Nature Center, Hen-
dry Glades Audubon, and Clinic
for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife.
Support came from Joyner Devel-
opment, Gatorama and Lakeport
Lodge.
Donna Storter Long, Glades
County commissioner, welcomed


visitors to Fort Center Trail, and
encouraged state agencies to
make more of Fisheating Creek
accessible for eco-tourism. An-
other portion of the creek can
be seen further west in Palmdale
off of U.S. 27 at Fisheating Creek
Campground. The section of the
old creek, bed between U.S. 27
and S.R: 78 has obstructions and
is barely navigable. An unob-
structed waterway, would allow
tourists to travel from Palmdale to
Lakeport.
"There are so many things to
share here," said Ms. Long.
Liz Sparks, FWC recreation
planner,- hosted "The Creek
Through Time", and can be con-
tacted for information at 850-922-
6160.

trol (COP) make frequent obser-
vations throughout the neighbor-
hoods.
John Wilkinson, assistant fire
chief, is the person to contact if
any vendors would like to line
up a booth for festival day. So
far, plans have been made for a
local music DJ, a 50/50 drawing,
door prizes, and pony rides for
the kids.


Booth vendors will have tea-
pots, leather goods, hats, and toy
pop-guns. Other foods and bev-
erages include funnel cakes, hot
dogs, desserts, baked goods and
snow cones.
Another vendor will have
plaques that recognize members
of each branch of the military in-
cluding law enforcement officers
and fire fighteKs.
The featured fried catfish din-
ner will come with baked beans,
cole slaw and a roll. This dinner
is included in the entry fee of $7,,
which will benefit the volunteer


fire department.
John Wilkinson is taking res-
ervations for more booth vendors
for a set up fee of $20. The space
is 10 feet by 10 feet and vendors
need to bring their own canopy
or tables. The Buckhead Ridge
Winter Festival will take place
Saturday, Jan. 31 from 9-3 p.m. at
the volunteer fire department and
community center in back pf the
fire house. Call Mr. Wilkinson at
863-467-8220.
