DOTTED



director visits



Glades County


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- Dale
Brill visited Glades County and
attended a public meeting at
the school district office, Feb. 4.
He is the director of,the Gover-
nor's Office of Tourism, Trade
and Economic Development
(OTTED). Mr. Brill was present
to develop a relationship with
Glades County people who are
concerned about their liveli-
hood. The agricultural region
around Lake Okeechobee pre-
pares for the closing of United
States Sugar Corporation in six


years..
"It's the most difficult thing
I have ever imagined. We have
challenges that are opportuni-
ties," said the director.
Mr. Brill also mentioned that
he grew up in Iowa, known for
its corn production, and that he
had "pulled tobacco when he
was a kid". He believes that ag-
riculture cannot be excluded in
the economy.
He told his listeners that
the change is definitely taking
place, and as Governor Crist's
appointee, he has been urged

BENBOW VILLAGE -- On
Feb: 8 about 4:08 p.m., Glades
County Sheriff's Office dis-
patched Deputy Sheriff John
Loper to a fight in progress at a
store in Benbow Village off C.R.
720 East.
According to the arrest re-
port, Deputy Sheriff Loper met
with the manager who pointed
out two men involved in an al-
tercation. Deputy Sheriff Loper
stated that he asked the main
aggressor, Eustachio Flores,


25, to come over so the man-
ager could translate. Mr. Flores
turned and went into an apart-
ment followed by the deputy
sheriff who told him to come
outside.
Mr. Flores reportedly refused,
and then was guided outside by
* deputy sheriff, whereby Flores
began to resist aggressively.
According to the arrest report,
Deputy Sheriff Loper applied
a familiar touch accompanied
by a wrist lock to the suspect's
left wrist. Mr. Flores made a fist

Superintendent explains financial concerns


Legislative
delegation learns
about school needs
and financial issues

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- On Jan.
27, a meeting with the legislative
delegation was held at the Glades
County courthouse in Moore Ha-
ven. State officials meet annually
with local officials and residents
to discuss the needs of local gov-


ernment and to learn about per-
tinent issues.
* Glades County School District
superintendent., Wayne Aldrich,
spoke about financial projec-
tions that concern the district.
The 2007-2008 budget had a
$800,000 cut due to revenue
reduction, and the budget for
2009-2010 is projected to have a
$1.35 million shortfall.
Mr. Aldrich reminded the au-
dience about the decline in state
tax collections as well as a de-
crease in the local tax roll.
He mentioned how district
leaders have made cost reduc-
tions by use of attrition, which


can refer to retirement and res-
ignation vacancies that are not
filled. However, many small
districts like Glades County find
themselves in a dilemma.
In order to make a $1.35 mil-
lion cut they could, for instance,
eliminate the entire district staff,
10 teachers and 10 para-pros.
Another example would be to
cut 30% of the teaching staff that
would amount to 27 teachers.
Mr. Aldrich commented that they
would not do this, but it gives
residents a general idea of the
figures involved. Furthermore,
many small school districts find
themselves in a dilemma should


cuts be made.
"On one hand we are told
to make cuts, and on one hand
there is a financial penalty if we
do cut," said Wayne Aldrich.
According to the superinten-
dent, the drawback to cutting
instructional staff centers on the
class size amendment in effect
since 2002, and implemented lo-
cally in 2004-2005. If the district
cut one teacher at West Glades
Elementary School they would
not meet limits for the class size
amendment at the school level.
The same thing would occur at
Moore Haven Elementary School
if two teachers were cut, and


penalties mean more cuts.
Mr. Aldrich went on to report
'that several things could be done
to ease the problem. For exam-
ple, the class size amendment
could be repealed, tax loopholes
could be closed, and tax exemp-
tions could be cut. Under-taxed
areas, the sales tax and cigarette
tax could be increased. He hopes
creative and fair ways to increase
revenue are found.
Hendry County School Dis-
trict made the decision to let
people go, and even though

Students meet senator's aide


FVA proposal would
help alien minors


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- Zach
Zampella, U.S. Senator Mel
Martinez' aide, came to visit
the Future Voices of America
(FVA) students at Moore Haven
High School, Feb. 4. His trip to
Glades County came shortly
after students met with legis-
lative delegates a week earlier.
At that meeting they proposed
legislation that would change


how undocumented students
qualify for admission to state
universities.
They presented the debate
that some high school gradu-
ates are not eligible for post
secondary education,, because
their parents are illegal immi-
grants and do not have federal
tax documents. These students
were brought here by their
parents when they were very
young children, and Florida has
always been home to them.
Even when admitted they must
pay out-of-state tuition or triple
the cost, even if they have lived
in Florida since they were two
or three.
FVA students believe that


these undocumented graduates
performed exactly as Ameri-
can society expected them to;
by achieving success in public
school and contributing to the
community. Therefore, they
should be allowed to go to col-
lege, too. Public elementary
and secondary schools do not
require proof of legal status for
enrollment, yet state universi-
ties will not admit them. -7
To make matters even more
confusing, some community
colleges admit them but some
do not. Even if they were ad- INI/Nena Bolan
mitted to a vocational school, Zach Zampella, aide to U.S. Senator Martinez, came to see
they would not be allowed to students who propose legislation for fellow students who are
undocumented immigrants. Mr. Zampella is standing during

ROAD WORK NEEDED: We, as tax payers and concerned resi-
dents that live in Horseshoe Acres in Glades County would like some
answers on why we cannot get anything done on our roads out here
after several complaints. These roads and right of ways are suppose to
county maintained but they have potholes, sides of roads are all falling
apart, along with the entrance to Horseshoe. A few years back they
put down tar and gravel but it's all coming up and in a lot of places is
down to the original dirt that was there to begin with. Also, the little
green carts go all up and down Highway 80 on both the Hendry and
Glades sides and pick up all the trash before the mowers get there.
Why can't they do the same here, as -- sorry to say -- people throw
trash out in here like anywhere else and the mowers just mow over
top of everything and makes it look worse then to begin with. We
would like some answers on this matter.

Valentine's Day -


"Market



Love" or

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
Valentine's Day a holiday
originated in an early Christian
Saint who went down-in history
because of his selfless love for his
jailor's daughter.
His selfless outpouring left it's
mark on those around him, and
he is remembered for his loving
acts of kindness. History has cele-
brated what he showed long after
it seems to have forgotten him.
Someone once said "All the
world loves a lover" and we can
all identify with those who are in
love.
A recent researcher was inter-
viewed on TV and reported that
there are changes in brain chem-
istry among those who are "in
love" versus those who have not
found a soul mate. Maybe in the
future we will no longer see dar-
ing deeds as proof of love, just a
chemical analysis!
I don't think so! Scriptures
speak voluminously of love, The
ancient World had more than one
word for it; and described it as an
active, not static quality in many
cases. "Love" was a verb, a "do-
ing word" and meant action. I re-
member a widow telling me she
had a good marriage.
Her friends told me otherwise;
she had suffered disappointments
and hard times, but they added
that "Claire worked at it." Love
for her was an active thing, doing
what it took to hold the relation-
ship together, knowing how to
give space and knowing how to
become one, forgiving and look-
ing for good where others might
not have seen it.
She had a love big enough to
understand human strength and
failing, knowing that the sacri-
fice was worth it, knowing that
she could see what God saw in
another even when nobody else
saw it, knowing it was worth it.
I reflected that her husband cer-
tainly had a treasure and I hoped
he cherished it.
She had blessed another by
loving and in return knew love,
There was nothing about being
passive or expecting only to be
loved or in not going the second
mile, searching 'how to be bet-


Place



... Love?

ter in loving, knowing that two
imperfect human beings have to
work at a perfect love if it is to
happen.
It is knowing that others aren't
there to meet all of our needs,
that we may have to give more
than we will receive, but it will be
worth it.
Among the most famous Bib-
lical reflections on love comes
Saint Paul's Hymn to Charity (or
Love) as found in his first epistle
to the Corinthians, Chapter 13.
It is about the priority of having
' love in one's life; about what love
can accomplish, about what not
to expect, and about the great-
ness of love.
He does not say "Love will not
come to an end" or that "You will
live happily ever after" but that
your impact on others will be felt
no matter what happens when
you love them; that is a gift to give
and a source of real joy.
The first epistle of Saint John,
Chapter 3, verse 13 through
Chapter 4, speaks of love and the
admonition to "love one another.'
John includes that "there is no
fear in love; perfect love casts out
fear (4:18)", saying in a sentence
that as we grow in love and be-
come more intimate and trusting,
we are healed and strengthened.
Our openness and vulner-
ability bring forth the gift of being
one's true self and being loved for
who we really are; risking and be-
ing rewarded for it.
Vulnerability can make pos-
sible true acceptance and over-
come shortcomings that make us
feel limited. That's what love, real
love, can do. It's when another
can give us a vision of what God
must see and what His love is all
about, too.
That love is ours when we
seek it from God, when we share
it with someone who gives us a
chance to see a little of what God
sees, healing, restoring, forgiving,
hoping, accepting, comforting,
making us whole, in His image.
Valentine was really onto some-
thing! He deserves to be remem-
bered and we need to celebrate,
actively, that greatest of gifts God
has given to us.


Count for Fun, Count
for the Future
Bird and nature fans through-
out North America are invited to
join tens of thousands of every-
day bird watchers for the 12th an-
nual Great Backyard Bird Count
(GBBC), Feb. 13-16, 2009.
Last year Clewiston reported
the most birds in Florida and was
fifth in the U.S. for the most birds
reported with only 29 checklists.
They reported 121 Species and
143,748 birds. Labelle submitted
23 checklists and Okeechobee 14
lists. A joint project of the Cornell
Lab of Ornithology and the' Na-
tional Audubon Society, this free.
event is an opportunity for fami-
lies, students, and people of all
ages to discover the wonders of
nature in backyards, schoolyard,
and local parks, and, at the same
time, make an important contri-
bution to conservation.
Participants count birds and
report their sightings online at,
www.birdcount.org.
Anyone can take part, from
novice bird watchers to experts,
by counting birds for as little as 15
minutes (or as long as they wish)
on one or more days of the event
and reporting their sightings on-
line at www.birdcount.org.
Participants can also explore
what birds others are finding in
their backyards-whether in their
own neighborhood or thousands
of miles away. Additional online
resources include tips to help
identify birds, a photo gallery, and
special materials for educators.
The data these "citizen scien-
tists" collect helps researchers un-
derstand bird population trends,
information that is critical for ef-
fective conservation.
Their efforts enable everyone
to see what would otherwise be
impossible: a comprehensive


picture of where birds are in late
winter and how their numbers
and distribution compare with
previous years. In 2008, par-
ticipants submitted more than
85,000 checklists. Each year, in
addition to entering their tallies,
participants submit thousands of
digital images for the GBBC photo
contest. Many are featured in the
popular online gallery.
Last year, Ken Corregan won
1st Place in "Group Pictures" for
his photo of wading birds taken at
STA5, 20 miles south of Clewiston.
Participants in the 2009 count are
also invited to upload their bird
videos to YouTube; some will also
be featured on the GBBC web
site. Visit www.birdcount.org to
learn more.
Tally sheets are available
through Hendry-Glades Audubon.
Call Margaret England at 863- 674-
0695 or the Clewiston Museum at
863-983-2870, if you don't have
internet access and would like to
receive a tally sheet. Leave your
name and address on the answer-
ing machine.

Missing You.
It's been a year since you've been gone,
It hasn't been very easy,
Especially when I hear your song,
I still often wonder, what happened that fateful night,
What were you thinking, did you know the end was in sight?
Did God come to you and say it was your time?
And there you stood at the pearly gates in line,
Looking down at us all in tears,
And you wanted to come and calm all our fears,
For now your in a place so beautiful, so clean,
A place where God can be seen,
I,never thought this would happen in a million years,
You come to me in my dreams at night,
And when I awake, there are always tears,
What would I do, Ifl could only hold you tight,
And to again hear your laughter,
Until we.meet again, in life ever after.
We Love and Miss You Lots,
'..Family & Friends

Overall, 23 high

school recruits from

four schools sign

their commitments

SOUTH LAKE REGION Na-
tional Signing Day was. nothing
short of spectacular on Wednes-
day, Feb 4.
A total of 23 area high school
football players signed their let-
ters of intent to colleges across
the nation.
Over in Clewiston, just one
senior participated in Super
Wednesday, but it wasn't just
anyone.
It was Darris Hughes, who
signed with Georgia State Univer-
sity last week.
The decision made by Hughes
was quite interesting, given the
fact that the school, located in
Atlanta, will not be fielding a foot-
ball team until the 2010 season.
Nonetheless, Georgia State
may very well have started a pipe-
line to this area, with the addition
of Glades Day's Bo Schlecter, one
of five Gators who made written
commitments, and Glades Cen-
tral's Robert Ferguson.
The Panthers are not the only
team that had multiple signees
from the area, as Michigan and


at one point was a rivals.com

the last minute that FAU never
even gave him an offer. ,
Though it may have been
frustrating for the cornerback, he
accepted an offer from Eastern
Michigan and signed there.
Nu'Keese Richardson, who
was the subject of a series of


the 'next Percy Harvin' at Florida.
Harvin, who's set to be drafted
by the NFL in April, was widely
considered as the best college

season after helping Florida win
a national championship last
month.
Overall, it was one of the most
memorable moments in recent

Hampton University picked up
two apiece.
Pahokee's outside linebacker,
Brandin Hawthorne, as well as
his teammate, running back Vin-
cent Smith, enrolled at Michigan
last month.
Both standouts put their writ-
ten commitments on the dot-
ted line in Ann Arbor, Mich. last
week.
Hampton (Va.) picked up two
Glades Central standouts in run-
ning back Antonio McCloude
and offensive lineman Vincent
Harper.
Alabama State University was
slated to pick up two area athletes
as well, but Pahokee center Jac-
quan Bentley is the only one who
signed there.
Glades Central's James
Melton, for reasons unspecified at
this time, was not one of the 10
Raiders players .who took part in
the National Signing Day festivi-
ties, held at Glades Central's high
school auditorium.
The Atlantic Coastal Confer-
enice (ACC) picked up two star
athletes from the area, as Glades
Central offensive lineman Henry
Orelus, a rivals.com four-star
prospect, is officially a Florida
State Seminole.
Palhokee cornerback Jarvis
Byrd, a four-star prospect and the
rivals.com No. 41 overall player in
the state, signed with N.C. State.
Byrd received more than a
dozen offers, including Wake For-

Pahokee head coach Blaze

area athletes signed last week:
"With all those signing, I think
it's safe to say that the Muck is the
pinnacle of high school football in

festivities.
It must be noted that Griffith,
affectionately known as 'Pooh',

Glades County artist honored in art competitions


Supomilea pnoro
Wes Ringtaff (pictured right) at the Brickbottom Gallery opening reception January 24 with
Boston's Museum of Fine Art curator, George Shackleford, (Pictured left).


Moore Haven Artist E.W
"Wes" Ringstaff has been rec-
ognized for his intense surreal-
istic paintings in a series he has
entitled Symbols That Carry The
Human Spirit. His mesmerizing
painting Cosmic Dancers was
selected by the prestigious Brick-
bottom Gallery of Somerville,
Massachusetts for inclusion in its
current show Mythological Ren-
derings: Interpreting Myths and
Legends through Art. The juror
was curator George Shackleford
of the Boston Museum of Fine
Art. The show opened Jan. 22 and
runs through Feb. 21. The works
of the 19 national artists selected,
including Ringstaff, can be viewed
at www.brickbottomgallery.com.
In prior years the Moore Ha-
ven artist had received 1st Place
awards for murals. But, he has
only recently submitted samples
of his contemporary art to nation-
ally juried art shows. The response
of art critics has been favorable.
He has been selected as a fea-


tured artist for the month of Feb-
ruary on the international website
of the Joseph Campbell Founda-
tion (www.jcf.org). This honor is
especially rewarding for Ringstaff
since the revolutionary concepts
of Joseph Campbell, a prolific.au-
thor, philosopher and imminent
scholar, has inspired his art.
Ringstaff was also selected to
exhibit three of his contemporary
paintings in a hardbound coffee
table book honoring 127 emerg-
ing artists. The national competi-
tion received approximately 1,000
submissions. The book Art Buzz;
2009 Collection is sent to art deal-
ers and galleries throughout the
USA and can be purchased at
www.artbuzz.org. Ringstaff was
honored with third place award
in the mixed media division with
his painting called The Heroine.
At one time in his earlier life as
a painter, Ringstaff was a prolific
portrait artist, but today he works
in solitude out of his country stu-
dio selling his paintings to private

Fire fighters predict active wild fire season


By Charles TM. Murphy
INI Florida
The Okeechobee District of
the Florida Division of Forestry is
ready/to go for what should be a
very busy fire season in 2009.
Spokesperson Melissa Yunas
said ,there already have been
somd wild fires in the county, and
one vehicle was destroyed when
it overheated and started a wild
fire. Another fire was started by a
person using a lawnmower to cut
down some heavy vegetation. ,
Yunas said the wild fire season
runs from December until July.
The most active part of the sea-
son is between April and June.
Most of the fires that occurred
between December and April
are man made. In April, lightning
strikes and other things can cause
wild fires. I
The Okeechobee Service Cen-
ter covers six counties, Okeecho-
bee, Glades, Highlands, Martin,
Indian River, and St. Lucie. They
have a fixed wing aircraft and a
helicopter stationed in Okeecho-
bee. The fixed wing aircraft has
already spotted some small wild
fires this year and helped firemen
put out the flames before they got
too big. Helicopter pilot Larry Da-
vis is also stationed in Okeecho-
bee. He can fly to any location in
Florida to assist in the extinguish-
ment of wild fires.
Last year the Okeechobee dis-
trict helped put out a large wild
fire in' Brevard County that de-
stroyed many homes. Ms. Yunas
said they hope nothing like that
happens in Okeechobee.
"The forecast for this year
would be very busy," Ms. Yunas
remarked, "The two recent frosts
last week has created a lot of dry-
ing affects. We ask people to be
very cautious. Now is the time to
protect your home and also be


cautious when you're outside."
Ms. Yunas said you can pro-
tect your homes by clearing of
the roof of your home. She stated
campfires start with pine needles,
sticks, twigs and leaves. These
items can also set your house on
fire. She urges, homeowners to
clear off their roofs, gutters and
areas near their homes for any-
thing that is flammable.
"Remember burning embers
can fly a quarter of a mile. If you
have these items accumulating
on your roof you're asking for it.


The embers can settle and ignite
your roof. The roof is the most
vulnerable part of your home,"
she added.
'Ms. Yunas said keep your
home lean, clean and green. That
means you should clear off areas
near your home so firemen can
protect it in the event there is a
wildfire.
Already this year the drought
index has been very high in
Okeechobee.
Indian Hammock and Viking
historically have the most wild


fire problems in Okeechobee.
Homes in these areas are often
put at risk due to wild fires. Yu-
nas said Indian Hammock is a
fire wise community. They have
volunteers that have cleaned off
roofs, and cleared yards to make
their community safer'.
Ms. Yunas said he and her fel-
low staff members are available
to make presentations to the pub-
lic on ways that they can better
protect their homes and business.

New members welcomed into amateur radio community


By Samuel S. Thomas,
W3ALE, PIO, Big Lake
Radio Club
On Saturday, Jan. 10, five can-
didates for amateur radio licenses
were tested and-passed their ex-
aminations.
Radio transmission requires
licensor and is regulated by the'
federal government as part of in-
ternational treaties controlling the
radio waves.
Because unauthorized trans-
missions can cause serious


problems with vital navigation
and communication functions, a
license is required for each trans-
mitting station that is "on the air"
including amateur stations.
For approximately two months,
Thorn street, N5KFR, conducted a
course in Moore Haven for poten-
tial radio amateurs.. The course
provided training in basic elec-
tronics, communications theory
and the federal laws governing
radio operations. ,
At the completion of the
course, candidates were tested,


taking a thirty-five question mul-
tiple choice examination and be-
ing certified as having "passed."
Their test materials and applica-
tions for a radio license were then
passed on to the American Ra-
dio Relay Leagues, that provides
course materials, tests and certifi-
cations of successful completion
for those who succeeded.
In turn, the applications and
certifications are passed on to the
Federal Communications Com-
mission for the issuance of a radio
license and call letters for each


licensee and station. Regulations
require that at least three licensed
radio amateurs, who are certified
as "Volunteer Examiners" admin-
ister and check the examinations.
Those involved in the testing,
along with Thorn Street, N5KFR,
who taught the course, were Sam
Thomas, W3ALE of Clewiston,
and Harold Hilliard, WB4TOV of
Okeechobee. Examiners take a
separate course to be certified as
capable of giving the tests and at-
testing to the competence of the
examinees.


All three Volunteer Examiners
hold the Amateur Extra class of
radio license; the highest of those
currently offered by the F. C. C.
In addition to the "Technician"
or first license, there is also an
intermediate or "General class
license available. Each class con-
fers certain operating frequencies
to license holders and allows for
different modes of transmission,
including voice communications,
code transmissions, amateur tele-
vision, satellite communications;
and allowing contacts with other


amateurs around the world and
with our astronauts in space.
The course and examinations
will be offered once again in the
near future.
For further information, con-
tact Thorn Street, N5KFR in Moore
Haven at 863-946-1348. Radio
amateur licenses are available to
all persons regardless of age and
with or without any technical
background.


These are the two destinies of mankind


- Heaven or Hell


By Jackie Miller

There are only one of two
places in eternity that we can
go: Heaven or Hell. Each one of
us will be placed in one of these
two places on judgment day to be
there forever and ever.
Our Lord is speaking of eter-
nity in Matthew 25:46 says, "And
these will go away into everlast-
ing punishment, but the righteous
into eternal life." Notice that the
duration of the lost in Hell is ex-
actly the same as the duration of
the saved in Heaven, "forever and
ever." It is hard for us mortals to
grasp how long eternity will, be,
but after we have been there bil-
lions of years, eternity will have


just begun.
We do not like to think about
eternal punishment. Let us con-
sider what the Lord says about
eternal punishment and then we
will turn our attention to a more
pleasant thought, Heaven. Our
Lord in describing how horrible
that Hell will be for the many
who will end up going there,
says in Matthew 13:42 "And will
cast them into the furnace of fire.
There ,will be wailing and gnash-
ing of teeth." This definitely will
be a horrible and terrible place
beyond description. Jesus says
in Mark 9:45-46 concerning those
who are lost, that they will be
"cast into Hell, into the fire that
shall never be quenched: where
their worm does not die, and the
fire is not quenched." There will
be no reprieve or appeal to a high-


er court, because we are being
judged by the fiighest. The Lord
is trying to get our attention and
give us fair warning. He is plead-
ing with us not to go there, but
we make the choice. The choice
is ours. We will bear the responsi-
bility and the consequences.
In Luke 16:24 Jesus is describ-
ing a man who went to Hell and
is pleading, "Then he cried and
said, Father Abraham, have mercy
on me, and send Lazarus that he
may dip the tip of his finger in wa-
ter and cool my tongue, for I am
tormented in this flame."
How much relief, and how
long would a drop of water last
on the tongue of those who
are being tormented forever? It
would not last even one second.
We must wake up and heed our
Lord's warning!


The many who end up in eter-
nal punishment will not be there
alone. They will have company.
Revelation 20:10, "The devil, who
deceived them was cast into the
lake of fire and brimstone where
the beast and the false prophet
are. And they will be tormented
day and night forever and ever."
Not very goo company to be in.
Notice that the torment goes on
"day and night forever and ever."
There are many people who
scoff at the idea of eternal pun-
ishment, but they are scoffing at
what God says. The fire will burn
forever and those who are lost will
be there in it for eternity whether
they want to believe it or not. In
eternity their scoffing will quickly
change to weeping and wailing
and gnashing of teeth. We must
take what the Lord says in the


Bible seriously. Hell is real! There found written in the Book of life
is not way for the horrors of Hell was cast into the lake of fire." It
to be adequately described in hu- is imperative that our name be
man language. Many people do found in the Book of Life. Is you
not realize the danger of eternally name in that Book? Do you know
losing their souls. This is very seri- for sure, or are you making an as-
ous! sumption? It will be too late on
In Hell there will be billions the Day of Judgment to find out

Train a child in the way he should go, he will not turn from it


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
In honor of the recent bass
tournament and fisherman fa-
thers everywhere, I would like to
share this story.
On the day before bass sea-
son opened in New York, a boy
and his father were fishing early
in the evening, catching sunfish
and perch with worms. Then
the boy tied on a small silver lure
and practiced casting. The lure
struck the water and caused sil-


very ripples in the'moonlight. On
the third cast, his pole suddenly
doubled over, and the boy yelled
with excitement with the expec-
tation of something big on the
other end.
And big it was. His father
watched with admiration as the
boy skillfully worked the fish
alongside the dock. Finally the
boy lifted the exhausted fish from
the water. It was the largest one
he had ever seen, but it was a
bass.


The boy and his father looked
at the trophy fish, gills playing
back and forth in the moonlight.
The father lit a match and looked
at his watch. It was 10 p.m. -- two
hours before the season opened.
He looked at the fish, then at the
boy. "You'll have to put it back,
son," he said.
"Dad!" cried the boy. "There
will be other fish," said his father.
"Not as big as this one," cried the
boy. He looked around the lake.
No other fishermen or boats were


anywhere around in the moon-
light. He looked again at his fa-
ther.
Even though no one had seen
them, nor could anyone ever
know what time he caught the
fish, the boy could tell by the clar-
ity of his father's voice that the
decision was not negotiable. He
slowly worked the hook out of the
lip of the huge bass, and lowered
it into the -black water. The fish
swished its tail and disappeared.
The boy suspected that he would


never again see such a great'fish.
That was.over 34 years ago. To-
day the boy is a successful archi-
tect in New York City. His father's
cabin is still there on the lake. He
takes his own son and daughters
fishing from the same dock.
And he was right. He has never
again caught such a magnificent
fish as the one he landed that
night long ago. But he does see
that same fish again and 'again
every time he comes up against a
question of ethics. For, as his fa-


their taught him, ethics are simple
matters of right and wrong. It is
only the practice of ethics that is
difficult.
"Train a child in the way he
should go, and when he is old he
will not turn from it." (Proverbs
22:6)

OTTED
Continued From Page 1
to travel anytime to Glades Coun-
ty. Dale Brill pointed out that rural
communities had been grossly
under represented and historically
underfunded. He wants the com-
munities in the FHREDI region to
get together and set up a network
of cooperation.
The inland port, or distribution
center, is a likely concept. While
OTTED is not the entity that builds
ports, it does work with FDOT,
DEP and DCA on research.
Work done on the Panama
Canal has doubled its future ca-
pacity, according to the director;
however, Port of Miami, Port Ev-
erglades and Port of Palm Beach
are in need of expanding freight


transportation. He has toured
proposed sites in the Glades re-
gion, and mentioned that it may
require more than one site to ac-
complish the project.
Moore Haven is the county seat
in Glades County, and its mayor,
Brett Whidden, questioned the
wisdom of closing agriculture
facilities in the middle of produc-

tor of money spent on projects
like the reservoir in Palm Beach

down; and of channelizing the
Kissimmee River, and then having
to restore it.

Glades County Commission meets


By Charles M. Murphy
INI Florida
A request by the Joe Marlin
Hilliard Revocable Trust to cre-
ate an industrial park north of
Wedgeworth Fertilizer and east of
U.S. 27 was approved when the
Glades County Board of County
Commissioners met on Tuesday.
Planning Director Larry Hilton
said the applicant intends to cre-
ate a 40 acre industrial park in
the near future. The application
involved 20 acres that was part of
a small scale amendment that the
commission approved last year.
Representative for the ap-
plicant, Tommy Perry, said the
project will be good for the com-
munity. There was no public
comment on the application.
The zoning of the property
was changed from open use ag-
ricultural to industrial. Another 20
acres was rezoned to industrial
last year. That property is located
directly north of this parcel. The
property will have access to U.S.
27 and to the railroad.
The Commission approved a
bid with Ajax Paving Industries
for $1.07 million. They will widen
and resurface County Road 720.
The Florida Department of Trans-
portation is funding the project.
Commissioners also approved
a bid submitted by the Glades
Democrat newspaper to publish
delinquent property tax notices.
The bid was nine cents per line.

with his right hand and started to
swing it in the deputy's direction.
Mr. Flores was taken to the
ground and the deputy sheriff
attempted to put him in hand
restraints, by which the suspect
resisted and broke free. The sus-
pect then took a standing position
and squared off as if he was go-
ing to fight the deputy. Mr. Flores
was given commands to get on
the ground in English and Span-
ish, but, according to the arrest
+ report, he ran to the store. Deputy
Sheriff Loper followed and con-
tinued with commands.
The suspect then started
pounding his chest and yelled
"Shoot me," according to the ar-
rest report. Deputy Sheriff Loper
attempted to deploy a capsicum
spray and commanded the sus-
pect to get on the ground, by
which Flores refused and ran.

employment. Florida is one of five
states in the nation with the high-
est illegal immigrant population,
according to the Department of
Homeland Security. Yet, it is the
only one of those five states that
has not waived out-of-state tuition
for undocumented graduates.
According to FVA school spon-
sor, Crystal Drake, a goal of the
proposal is to help people who
are already here, to make our na-
tions's borders strong, to legislate
the creation of a path to citizen-
ship. At present, there is absolute-

The deputy sheriff deployed a

lost sight of the suspect as he fled
between the many apartments.
Deputy Sheriff J. Sapuppo then
arrived on the scene and the dep-
uties went to the apartment Mr.
Flores resided in, but he was not
there when they entered it. The
suspect was then reported to be in
a different apartment. According
to the arrest report, Deputy Sher-
iffs Loper and Sapuppo searched
the apartment and located Mr.
Flores in the bathroom. When
the bathroom door was opened,
the suspect rose from a sitting po-
sition and charged toward them.
Deputy Sheriff Sapuppo tried to
deploy his taser, but it did not dis-
charge and the suspect attempted
to grab hold of the deputy.

the proposal in-line with federal
guidelines.
Presently, the only way for an
undocumented high school grad-
uate to become a citizen would
be to re-locate back to their par-
ent's home country and apply for
a visa. Unfortunately, the teenage
graduate would have no family or
home to go back to in the foreign
country, according to FVA student
researchers. It is probable that

attempted to stand, and he was
given English and Spanish com-
mands to stay seated. He refused
and the taser was applied a sec-
ond time. Deputy Sheriff Sapuppo
then secured the suspect's right
wrist with a handcuff, by which
the suspect tried to pull his wrist
away.,
After commands were given to
stop resisting, the suspect contin-
ued the struggle to free himself.
According to the arrest report, the
taser was applied a third time and
he complied and was secured in
handcuffs.
Eustachio Flores was treated

where he was cleared and then
taken to the Glades County jail.
The suspect was charged with

"Do an internet campaign and

Mr. Zampella.
He also mentioned that on a
