GLADES/HENDRY -- Luck-
ily, for residents in Glades and
Hendry Counties, there are
community members who
pitch in and help those in
need of medical services. Nova
'Southeastern University of the


Health Sciences and the local
community joined together
to bring it about. The health
fair at Hendry Regional Medi-

most successful fair they have
had, according to Ellen Geake
of Riverside Glades Medical
Center in Moore Haven. She is
the office manager at Riverside
Glades, and a health fair orga-
nizer, too.
The purpose of the event is
to administer necessary medi-
cal services to the uninsured

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY The
community traffic safety team'
(CTST) met Feb. 4, which was
attended by Charlie Cane,
DOT safety officer liaison, who
works with local law enforce-
ment agencies and the state.
Mr. Cane focused much of his
discussion on seat belt safety.
According to the safety of-
ficer, seat belt use among
drivers in rural counties is low
compared to suburban and ur-


ban drivers; and rural pick up
truck drivers have the least seat
belt usage. In. 2008, statistics
showed 80 percent of drivers
used seat belts, but not in rural
areas. Mr. Cane mentioned that
the state's media campaign for
"Click It or Ticket" will begin in
early May.
Charlie Cane went on to ex-
plain that vehicle seating is re-
ally not arranged properly for
a collision. It would be best if
passengers were seated facing
the rear of the vehicle, because
during impact their bodies still
continue a forward momen-
tum against the lap and shoul-
der belts.
"Actually, three collisions
happen," said Mr. Cane.
First the' vehicle is struck,

Suspect charged with trespassing and larceny


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- A sus-
pect was arrested in connection
with a trespassing and larceny
case. Vulgar statements referring
to bodily harm are included in
the arrest report and this article.
On Feb. 14, about 10 a.m., Dep-
uty Sheriff A. Blachowski and
Deputy Sheriff G. Johnson were
dispatched to a residence on Ev-
erglades Avenue in west Glades
County.
Deputy Sheriff Blachowski
spoke to the victim who ex-


plained that her ex-boyfriend,
Michael Guy, 27, stayed in the
woods nearby last night and
made threatening comments.
According to the arrest report,
the victim and two other resi-
dents explained that the suspect
threatened to "'cut (victim's)
throat and gut her like a deer."
Also, the residents claimed that
the suspect threatened to shoot
everyone in the house.
Later in the morning, the vic-
tim claims the suspect climbed
the fence and grabbed her tea-
cup chihuahua valued at $500.
The victim also claimed that
I


he went back to his home and
called her, and said that he had
snapped the dog's neck, accord-
ing to the arrest report.
Both deputies then went to
Mr. Guy's residence on Crescent
Avenue.. When they arrived,
Deputy Sheriff Johnson saw a
dog sitting in the window, which
fit the victim's description.
The suspect was asked if he
had gone to the house on Ev-
erglades Avenue, and he men-
tioned that he had been sleep-
ing, according to Deputy Sheriff
Blachowski's report. The deputy
then asked Mr. Guy if he had any


dogs inside his house, and he
commented that the only dogs
he had were outside. Deputy
Johnson then asked the suspect
about the chihuahua sitting in
the window that matched the
description of the victim's dog
which had been taken.
According to the arrest report,
Mr. Guy commented that he did
not steal the dog; and that the
victim left the dog at his house.
The suspect was placed under
arrest and the dog was returned.
Deputy Sheriff Blachowski
notes in his report that Michael
Guy mentioned that he did not


care if he went to jail because
he would be out in a couple
of Iours; and that after being
released he would go back to
where the victim was and "f---
everyone up that was there."
Deputy Sheriff Blachowski
mentioned that since the suspect
made statements about causing
bodily harm to the victim and
other residents, his bond would
be set by the First Appearance
Judge.
The suspect was charged with
trespassing and larceny.

County will shelter
Mobile Animal
Response
Equipment

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY --A
county commissioner's meet-
ing was held Feb. 10, and a re-
quest was made by emergency
management. The request was
approved for a memorandum
of understanding between the
Florida Department of Agricul-
ture and Consumer Services
(FDACS) and Glades County.
According to local emergency


management, the State Agri-
culture Response Team (SART),
will store its Mobile Animal
Response Equipment in the
county at the public safety de-
partment building on S.R. 78.
SART is a multi-agency co-
ordination group of private and
government organizations that
will provide an all-hazard pre-
paredness, planning, response
and recovery for the animal
and agriculture sectors in Flor-
ida. It is also a training and re-
source coordinator. SART will
assist the larger Florida agency
known as Regional Domestic
Security Task Force.
SART members are from
county agencies, and citizen
volunteers who are experi-
enced with animal and agricul-


ture communities. According to-
local emergency management,
FDACS chose Glades County
because of its location and un-
met heeds. FDACS will pay for
the equipment and insurance,
and the county will store and
maintain the animal response
equipment. Glades County may
have to deploy it within the
county, or to another county in
need during a disaster.
SART is a state entity, but it
operates on a local level.
'All disasters happen at the
local level in someone's back
yard," said Tim Manning, SART
and USDA representative.
The U.S. Department of
Homeland Security has made

Teams win basketball titles


Glades Day is district
runner-up; season
ends for both Moore
Haven and Pahokee

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION How
does a Class 4A Final Four match-
up between Clewiston and Glades
Central sound?
The probability of that dream
matchup increases, especially af-
ter both teams have reached the
Class 4A Regional Boys Basket-
ball Tournament.
Glades Day, the No. 9 ranked
team in Class 2A, advanced to
the 2A Regionals after reaching
the District 2A-'13 championship
game against Summit Christian.
Pahokee and Moore Haven,
however, failed to reach the finals
of their respective district tourna-
ments.
Pahokee lost to Inlet Grove,
70-60, in the District 3A-13 semifi-
nals, while Moore Haven's season
ended in the opening round of the
District 2A-12 tournament. *
The FHSAA regional quarter-
final games for Clewiston (20-4),
Glades Day (19-6) and Glades
Central (20-6) will be played to-
night at 7 p.m.
Glades Central, who won their
second consecutive District 4A-
14 title on Feb. 14, will have the
luxury of hosting their first two
regional tournament games.
That will happen only if they
win tonight's matchup against
District 4A-13 runner-up Rock-
ledge (20-6).
The two home games were
earned by the Raiders' 46-44
triple-overtime win over Jensen
Beach (13-4) in the District 4A-14
championship game, which was
played at Glades Central.
Jensen Beach travels north to
District 4A-13 champion Cocoa
(25-3) in their Class 4A regional
quarterfinal game.
Glades Central, should they
win, will face the winner of Co-
coa and Jensen Beach in the re-
gional semifinals next Tuesday
night (Feb. 24).

Class 4A regional championship
game, they'll likely have to get

PBSO is seeking Volunteer


Domestic Violence Victim Advisors


Our law enforcement officers
have helped to keep many bat-
tered women and men safe by
fast response times to answer do-
mestic call outs and by arresting
the primary aggressor when a do-
mestic violence crime has been
committed.
It has also been found that vic-
tims of domestic violence benefit
even more if immediate interven-
tion is provided after the crime
has been committed, by the Dep-
uties linking these victims with a
Volunteer ViCtim Advisor from the
scene.
As When immediate interven-
tion is provided, victims are more
likely to follow through with the
community referrals and safety
plans that are recommended.
This helps victims get the help
they need to end the cycle of vio-
lence and keep them and their
families safe.
Statistics reveal that an esti-
mated 4 to 6 million, women are
battered by a spouse or intimate
partner in the U.S. each year, and
an incident of domestic violence
occurs every 12 to 15 seconds.
Children are the silent vic-
tims whenever there is domestic
violence, as all children who wit-
ness it can experience emotional


trauma.
Also, nearly 70% of the men
who abuse their partners also
physically neglect or abuse the
victim's children.
Thus, these statistics clearly
illustrate why this problem con-
tinues to be a major concern for
law enforcement agencies and
the reason the Sheriff's Office has
taken a proactive stance in com-
bating domestic violence within
our community.
After all, a child's main con-
cern of the day should never have
to be the thought that someone in
their family could be killed.
To date, there are 18 "on-call"
Volunteer Victim Advisors and
since the program's inception in
December of 2000, 8,362 victims
have been provided with servic-
es.
These Volunteers are making
a difference and helping to save
lives. Therefore they should be
commended for 'the work that
they do.
However, the Sheriff's Office
is in need of more volunteers to
handle the high volume of cases.
That is why I am asking quali-
fied professionals from the com-
munity to take a proactive po-
sition by joining with our law


enforcement team to become
Volunteer Domestic Violence Vic-
tim Advisors for the Palm Beach
County Sheriff's Office.
The Volunteer Advisors will
be essential in linking domestic
violence victims with community
resources and conducting follow-
up contacts with them.
All victim contacts provided
by the volunteers will be made
over the telephone and can be
performed from the volunteer's
home.
In conclusion, community
involvement in this innovative
program will have a great impact
on combating domestic violence
within Palm Beach County.
It is preferred that those who
inquire about the volunteer posi-
tion have at least an Associate's
Degree in Social Work, Criminal
Justice, Psychology or a degree in
a closely related field.
For more information call 561-
688-4195 for Maria Galindez, Do-
mestic Violence Victim Advocate.
Join our team and become a
Volunteer Victim Advisor today.

Think Outside the Recycling Bin


DEP offers
eco-friendly tips for
reducing items at
home and office


TALLAHASSEE- As the winter
season comes to an end and Flo-
ridians begin to think about spring
cleaning, the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection
(DEP) encourages residents to ap-
ply the 3 R's Reduce, Reuse and
Recycle -and discover ways to re-
cycle items that may not normally
be considered recycle-friendly.
"We all understand the im-
portance of recycling," said Mary
Jean Yon, Director of DEP's Divi-
sion of Waste Management. "Re-
ducing waste can also help keep
our landfills from filling up.
Most people think of recycling
newspapers, cans and bottles,
but your closets, desks and draw-
ers are filled with items that can
also be recycled."
Tips and resources for practic-
ing the 3 R's while de-cluttering
your home or office:
Athletic shoes Local running
clubs often collect athletic shoes
for charitable causes such as
homeless shelters and women's
refuge houses.
One World Running club will
send still-wearable shoes to ath-
letes in need in locations such as
Africa, Latin America and Haiti
(http://www.oneworldrunning.
com).
Soles4Souls collects gen-
tly worn shoes of all kinds and
donates them to those in need
(www.soles4souls.org).
Nike's Reuse-a-Shoe program
turns old shoes into playground
and athletic flooring (http://www.
nikereuseashoe.com/).
Sports equipment Resell or
trade used sports equipment.
Look up "used sporting equip-
ment" in the yellow pages or on-


Dry cleaning hangers and
plastic bags Some dry cleaners
will accept wire hangers and re-
use them.
They may also recycle plastic
bags or you may be able to put
them in your regular recycling
bin.
To be even more eco-friendly,
you can also research (Google:
environmentally friendly dry
cleaners) whether dry cleaners
in your area use environmentally
friendly solvents that are biode-
gradable in water and in soil.
Another option is to avoid
buying clothes labeled "dry clean
only."
Techno-trash As you upgrade
your technology, many outdated
items can be reprocessed, such as
VHS tapes, game cartridges, digi-
tal cameras, MP3 players, cords,
cables, cassette tapes, VCRs and
computer monitors.
GreenDisk will take these
items and reprocess them in an
eco-friendly way. Call 1-800-305-
DISK or visit www.greendisk.com
to learn how you can pay a small
amount for shipping to relieve
your conscience and your clutter.
In addition, www.flipswap.
com can provide you with a num-
ber of local businesses that recy-
cle used cell phones.
Exercise videos -Video Fitness
offers a video exchange service
(www.videofitness.com).
Mattresses Although in most
places you cannot recycle mat-
tresses and most charities will not
take them, you may be able to
find a good home for a mattress
in usable condition through the
Freecycle Network.
This Internet service helps
people offer up items that other
people will happily take (www.
freecycle.org).
Also, you can offer things for
free to people in your area on an
online bulletin board.
Toothbrushes and Razors -


Buy a recycled plastic toothbrush
or razor from Preserve and the
company will take it back to be
recycled again into plastic lum-
ber.
Preserve toothbrushes and ra-
zors are made from used Stony-
field Farm Yogurt Cups (www.
preserveproducts.com).
Clothes Wearable clothes
can be donated to charity organi-
zations or local shelters.
Women's business clothing
can be donated to Dress for Suc-
cess, which offers them to dis-
advantaged women looking for
employment (www.dressforsuc-
cess.org). Un-wearable clothes
may be donated to pet shelters
for bedding.
Eyeglasses Local Lions Clubs
recycle glasses and provide usable
eyeglasses to children and adults
throughout the world (www.lion-
sclub.org).
Local eye care chains may
also collect them, such as Lens-
Crafters, Target Optical, or other
participating stores and doctors'
offices, which will send them to
www.givethegiftofsight.org. Metal
frames can be recycled in scrap-
metal recycling bins.
Ink/toner cartridges Many
office product suppliers will take
back empty ink/toner cartridges,
recycle them for you, and allow
store credit towards future pur-
chases.
Recycleplace.com will pay up
to $1 for returned ink/toner car-
tridges (www.recycleplace.com).
Film Canisters Check with
your local recycling center to find
out if it takes gray film-container
lids (No. 4) and black bases (No.
2). If not, many photo labs will ac-
cept them.
Food Processors Some com-
munities accept small household
appliances for recycling- if not in
curbside collection, then in drop-
off locations:
Since most appliances are
about 75 percent steel accord-


ing to the Steel Recycling Insti-
tute, your appliance will prob-
ably qualify unless you know it is
mostly plastic.
Carpeting Some carpet man-
ufacturers take part in recycling
programs.
Google search "What can I
do with my old carpet?" to learn
more about carpet-reclamation
or check with your carpet's man-
ufacturer.
Crayons -The National Crayon
Recycle Program (www.crazy-
crayons.com) melts down cray-
ons and reforms them into new
ones.
Hearing Aids The Starkey
Hearing Foundation (www.so-
theoworldmayhear.org) recycles
used hearing aids of any make or
model and no matter how old.
Lions Clubs also accept hear-
ing aids for reuse (www.lion-
sclub.org).
To increase recycling through-
out Florida, last summer Gover-
nor Charlie Crist signed into law
the Energy, Climate Change, and
Economic Security Act of 2008
which establishes a new state-
wide recycling goal of 75 percent
to be achieved by 2020.
Within the law DEP is directed
to develop a program to,achieve
this goal and submit it to the Flor-
ida Legislature for consideration
by January 1,2010.
For more information on the
new statewide recycling goal of
75 percent, and to share your
comments on ways to achieve
this goal and view comments
from others on our web-based
forum, visit www.dep.state.fl.us/

cling coordinator to learn where
to recycle in your community

. On Saturday, Jan. 17, the
Rooter club held a Showman-
ship and Demonstration Clinic
at the Mathis. home in Moore
Haven.
The club had a swine show-
manship demonstration for the
over 30 club members.
Kim Fielder of Clewiston was
the showmanship presenter.
Kim did a great job instruct-
ing the exhibitors on showing
techniques, ring manners, dress,
potential questions, and groom-
ing tips,
Courtney Davis, Jessica Man-
cil, Lindsey Wiggins, and Cole
Garvey volunteered as Demon-
stration judges.
The judges were impressed
and at times amused with the
participants and the swine re-
lated subjects being presented.


Samantha Shearer and Seth
Garvey were winners of the first
place Jr. and Sr. Demonstrations
and were awarded $20 gift cer-
tificates provided by Tractor Sup-
ply of Clewiston. Our Jr. second
place was Tanner Mathis, third
place was Ethan Taylor.
In the Sr. division Lindsey
Ringstaff placed second and Sa-
mantha Barnes third.
Regan Mathis cooked hot
dogs and Carla Shearer created
her adorable and delicious "pig"
cupcakes.
The Rooter club is grateful to
the Mathis family for hosting this

Thanks Laura & Regan!
We also would like to thank
Tractor Supply, B&B Grocery,
and U.S. Sugar for donating to
our event.


Boat traffic will
not be allowed due
to lowering Lake
Okeechobee levels
Okeechobee, Fl The naviga-
tion locks, S-193 at Taylor Creek;,
G-36 at Henry Creek and S-135
at J&S Fish Camp will be closed
to all boat traffic when Lake
Okeechobee's water level falls to
13.00 ft. NVGD.
Currently, the forecast calls for
a continuing dry weather, with
little to no significant rainfall pre-
dicted to recharge local drainage
basins along the rim canals that
flow into Lake Okeechobee.
The weather pattern has trig-
gered the decision to close the
aforementioned navigation locks.
This is being done in order to
maintain current canal water lev-
els in the areas serviced by these
locks.
Once these navigation locks
are secured in the closed and
unmanned position, they will re-
main closed until water in Lake
Okeechobee is recharged through
rainfall to a level that water man-
agers feel will enable them to
resume normal lock operations
while maintaining canal levels
north of the lake.
These closures will slow the
loss of water from boat lockage in
the local drainage basins includ-
ing Taylor Creek and Treasure Is-


land canal systems and maintain
navigable levels in these systems
as these dry conditions persist.
During the recent drought,
low water levels in these canals
caused them to become impass-
able and overgrown with vegeta-
tion.
Following requests from the
surrounding community, the Dis-
trict closed the navigation locks
to preserve the remaining water
for both navigation and for water
supply.
This action will provide similar
protections.
For additional information
about the navigation locks, wa-
ter levels or other District proj-
ects, please phone the SFWMD
Okeechobee Service Center at
863-462-5260 or 800-250-4200.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District is a regional, gov-
ernmental agency that oversees
the water resources in the south-
ern half of the state 16 counties
from Orlando to the Keys.
It is the oldest and largest of
the state's five water manage-
ment districts.
The agency mission is to man-
age and protect water resources
of the region by balancing and
improving water quality, flood
control, natural systems and wa-
ter supply.
A key initiative is cleanup and
restoration of the Everglades.


U.S. Army applauds district


project for disabled vets


District Everglades
platform increases
public conservation
land access
West Palm Beach, FL -The
South Florida Water Management
District (SFWMD) and its partner,
United Waterfowlers Florida,
Inc., received a Freedom Team
Award from the U.S. Army for the
speedy effort to build a special-
ized platform in the remnant Ev-
erglades for disabled soldiers and
residents alike.
The waterfowl hunting/bird
watching platform was construct-
ed in less than 90 days at the Dis-
trict's Stormwater Treatment Area
5 (STA-5) in Hendry County.
The successful project was,
the latest SFWMD effort to meld
restoration with recreation by in-
creasing outdoor opportunities-
and access to them-on public
lands.
The District has long sponsored
a hunting recreation program, yet
an e-mail from a wounded vet-
eran made SFWMD Governing
Board member Michael Collins
and members of the Water Re-
sources Advisory Commission
(WRAC), which he. chairs, com-
,mitted to doing more.
"The veteran said, 'I'm tired of
volunteering my time to go down
to the hospital and play bingo and
watch those guys sitting in chairs
inside of the hospital,"' Collins re-
called.
"It just struck me that for those
guys, getting out on one of the le-
vees would be a really good thing
to have happen. The great thing
about it is we build this duck plat-
form out into the swamp, and it's
actually something that makes
a great access point for every-
body."
Working with United Water-


fowlers Florida, Inc., the District
built a platform and large wood-
en boardwalk that can accommo-
date two wheelchairs.
For hunting, the structure can
be configured with camouflage
netting and other tools of the
sport.
"The STA waters have proven
to be a fantastic duck hunting op-
portunity in a world where there
are very few hunting opportuni-
ties left to the public any more,"
Collins added.
The SFWMD and Florida Fish'
and Wildlife Conservation Com-
mission sponsored the first hunt
on Dec. 21, when several hunters
lent their permits to disabled vet-
erans so they could enjoy the new
platform.
Bird watchers are also benefit-
ing from the increased access at
the STA, renowned for its abun-
dant wildlife.
Notably, all of the District's
STAs are compliant with Ameri-
cans with Disabilities Act require-
ments.

Recreation
Opportunities
Continue to Expand
During the past year, the SF-
WMD took a number of steps to
improve recreational opportuni-
ties throughout South Florida:
In October 2008, outdoor en-
thusiasts gained another spot to
enjoy a host of recreational activi-
ties with the opening of the 3,700-
acre Chandler Slough in Okeecho-
bee, an addition to the Kissimmee
River Public Use Area.
In July 2008, the SFWMD out-
fitted Stormwater Treatment Area
(STA) 1 West, located in central
Palm Beach County, with a new
parking area leading to a 200-foot
viewing platform and gazebos
overlooking the watery expanse.


The three-mile trail along a
section of the levee surrounding
the 6,670-acre STA offers hikers,
bicyclists, photographers and bird
watchers vast views of nature and
wildlife such as great blue herons
and mottled ducks.
Also in July, hikers, campers
and horseback riders were given
access to apply online for recre-
ational use licenses for activities
on more than a dozen sites man-
aged by the District.
The online application is at
www.sfwmd.gov/sul

ment Areas and recreational op-

West Palm Beach, FL In
2009, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
will mark 60 years of serving the
public by managing and protect-
ing the water resources of South
Florida.
Created in 1949 as the Cen-
tral and Southern Florida Flood
Control District, the agency has
evolved at the direction of the
Florida Legislature into the multi-
faceted SFWMD, the largest and
oldest of the state's five water
management districts.
Today, the District continues
its original mission of providing
regional flood protection while
also managing water supplies for
a population of approximately 7.5
million, improving water qual-
ity and leading the restoration of
America's Everglades the larg-
est environmental project in the
nation's history.
"Over.the last 60 years, the Dis-
trict has developed a reputation as.
one of the leading water manage-
ment agencies in the world," said
SFWMD Governing Board Chair
Eric Buermann.
"Looking ahead to the next 60
years, we face many challenges,
from providing a growing popu-
lation with flood protection and a
quality water supply to restoring


our natural systems.
"With its long history and ex-
perience, this agency has dem-
onstrated its ability to adapt and
evolve to best meet the needs of
South Florida's environment and
citizens."
To mark the District's 60th an-
niversary, informational panels
tracing the history of water man-
agement in South Florida have
been set up in the lobby of District
headquarters.
During today's Governing
Board meeting, Executive Direc-
tor Carol Ann Wehle also intro-
duced the first in a series of pre-
sentations that each month will
highlight aspects of the District's
past, present and future.
"The history of South Florida
cannot be written without dis-
cussing water," said Wehle, the
District's first female executive
director.
"Decisions made more than a
century ago continue to strongly
influence how we are able to ef-
fectively manage' water and re-
lated resources for the benefit
of both people and the environ-
ment."
The first historical presentation
focused on early efforts to drain
the swamp lands of South Florida
and temper the weather extremes
of the region.


Beginning with the Swamp
and Overflowed Land Act of
1850, the State of Florida and real
estate developers built canals to
drain wetlands and connect Lake
Okeechobee to both coasts.
Over the first half of the 20th
century, hardy residents dealt
with a cycle of heavy rains and
prolonged drought.
The Storm of 1928 resulted in
thousands of deaths and was the
impetLs for construction of a dike
around Lake Okeechobee, and
the Hurricanes of 1947 flooded
more than 90 percent of south-
eastern Florida.
Stunned by the damage and
duration of the 1947 flooding de-
spite earlier flood control actions,
Floridians demanded federal
help.
The U.S. Congress responded
in 1948 by adopting the Central
and Southern Florida Project, a
massive system of flood control
works designed to cover a 16,000-
square-mile area.
A year later, the Florida Leg-
islature created the Central and
Southern Florida Flood Control
District to serve as the local spon-
sor for the project.
For more information on the
history of the District, please visit
www.sfwmd.gov throughout the
year.


Cont. from Feb. 5,
hardships, murder
and more in the
New World
Father Rogel sailed back to
Cuba with the expedition.
He gathered supplies and re-
turned to Ft. Antonio in. 1567, ar-
riving in far healthier spirits than
he had left in.
His bitter adversary, Casique
Carlos, was murdered .by the
Spanish commander, Captain Re-
inoso, who placed a new Casique
called Felipe in his place.
The new Casique allied with
the Spanish, so Father Rogel was
now free to try and convert the
Calusa Indians, including Felipe.
Casique Felipe hated the Toco-
baga cacique and saw the Span-
ish massacre at Tampa Bay as a
blessing in disguise.
He instructed all the Calusa ca-
siques and captains to stockpile
weapons and asked that more
Spanish soldiers be stationed at
St. Antonio.
Pero Menendez Marques left
ten additional soldiers at Ft Anto-
nio to protect the fort, not know-
ing Casique Felipe's plans to use
them against the Tocobaga Indi-
ans.
The saying, you can't teach an
old dog new tricks certainly ap-
plied to Casique Felipe and the
Calusa people.
Father Rogul knew the Calusa
were a theological challenge,
based on his pervious visit, so on
his return trip from Havana, he
brought a large quanity of maize,
fishhooks, knives, hatchets, nails,
and adzes, which were used to
bait the Calusa to church.
Father Rogel said, "On account
of this, while the bounty last, there
is a very notable result in the way
of their coming willingly at the
smell of the lure that is given to
them to hear matters pertaining
to their salvation."
The Calusa were dedicated
church goers as long as the
"loaves and fish" lasted; they lost
interest when the gifts ran out.
Father Rogel was infuriated
when Casique Felipe committed
an incestuous act and married his
sister. Casique Felipe told Father
Rogel that it had always been the
Calusa way, and he wasn't going
to convert.
Change was an ugly, foreign
word to the Calusa people.
Father Rogel tried hard to con-
vert the Calusa, but they contin-
ued to worship their idols and the
men remained in polygamous
marriages.
There will be more "Tale Tales"
in next week's edition, "A Walk in
The Past" when Spanish missions
fail in south Florida.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

seeks good





homes for





unwanted





pets


If you have an exotic pet you can't care for
anymore, don't just open the front door and
set it free.
It's illegal to release a nonnative animal
into the wild in Florida, and it could be detri- -
mental for the animal and the environment.
In an effort to keep unwanted exotic pets
out of Florida 's native habitats, the Florida
Fish .and Wildlife Conservation Commission
(FWC) and the Miami MetroZoo will host the
fifth Nonnative Pet Amnesty Day in March in
Miami.
"We are expecting to get quite a few non-
native animals that day, so we need to make
sure we. have safe homes for them," said Jen-
ny Tinnell of the FWC.
"Released pets are a common pathway
that allows exotic species into the wild. Often,
pet owners don't understand the difference
between native and nonnative species, or
they don't realize the possible effects releas-
ing a nonnative species.can have.
"This event gives pet owners who can no
longer take care of their pets or no longer wish
'to keep them a legal, ethical option."
Currently, the FWC is looking for potential
adopters in South Florida who are experi-
enced pet owners and are willing to provide a
home for one or two more animals.
All adopters must fill out the proper appli-
cation form before they receive surrendered
animals.
"This isn't a free pet giveaway," Tinnell
said. "We're looking for adopters with knowl-
edge and expertise in caring for exotic pets,
not people who have always wanted a pet and
think this is an opportunity to try their hand at
owning one they don't have to purchase."
Pet Amnesty Day will be March 21 at the
Miami MetroZoo. It's free and open to the
public. Exotic animals can be surrendered
to the FWC free of charge with no questions
asked and no penalties.
"We will not be penalizing any pet own-
ers who choose the responsible option of not
releasing their nonnative pets into the wild.
This is about curbing our ongoing problem of
exotic fish and wildlife," Tinnell said.
A veterinarian will examine each animal,
and every attempt will be made to place all
healthy animals with qualified adopters. Am-
nesty Day is also a family event.
There will be live animals on display, live
animal shows and fun activities. Experts will
be on hand to talk to about proper care of ex-
otic pets, so people who are thinking about
purchasing one can learn from credible
sources before they buy.
This is a chance for people to not only see
exotic animals, but get up close and even
touch them.
Nonnative pet amnesty events help to in-
crease awareness of nonnative species prob-
lems.
Over 400 nonnative species have been
observed in Florida, and more than 130 have
reproducing populations.
For more information on nonnative species
in Florida, visit MyFWC.com/nonnatives/.
Anyone interested in adopting nonnative
pets should download the proper adoption
application and animal care sheets at My-
FWC.com and click on "Be a nonnative pet
adopter."
Adopters must have knowledge of natural
history and caging requirements and have
proper facilities for the animals they are inter-
ested in adopting.
There is no fee for being an adopter.

Water Managers Safeguard Water for Everglades Restoration


First water
reservation set for
Picayune Strand
West Palm Beach, FL Fulfill-
ing a 2008 commitment to guar-
antee water for restoration of the
Picayune Strand and Fakahatchee
Estuary, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
Governing Board today adopted
the first-ever water reservation for
America's Everglades. This mile-
stone completes a year-long rule-
making process to develop the
reservation, which will serve to
protect the ecosystem and wild-
life on Florida's Southwest coast
for decades to come.
"The first Everglades water
reservation is a true restoration
achievement, even though it is not
a construction project that you
can see or visit," said Eric Buer-


mann, Chairman of the SFWMD
Governing Board. "Environmen-
tal restoration depends on water,
and today we have guaranteed
that these unique ecosystems will
have what they need."
A water reservation is a legal
mechanism to set aside water for
the protection of fish and wildlife
or public health and safety. When
a water reservation is in place,
volumes and timing of water at
specific locations are protected
for the natural system ahead of
consumptive uses such as new
development.
The adoption of today's water
reservation also allows the Dis-
trict to enter into a cost-sharing
partnership with the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers to continue
construction on Picayune Strand
restoration projects. Several proj-
ect phases have been completed
but more work remains.
Located north of Everglades


National Park on Florida's South-
west coast, the Picayune Strand
was drained in the 1960s for a
failed real estate development.
Road construction and canal ex-
cavations reduced aquifer storage,
increased freshwater discharges
to estuaries in the Ten Thousand
Islands, disrupted native plant
communities and increased the
frequency of wildfires.
In October 2003, Florida be-
gan restoring the Picayune Strand
as a part of the Comprehensive
Everglades Restoration Plan
(CERP). The restoration project
is restoring surface water flow to
vital wetlands to ensure that wet-
land plants and animals thrive,
including the endangered Florida
panther, and to improve the Ten
Thousand Islands estuaries. Ex-
pected benefits also include a
more natural fire regime and im-
proved aquifer recharge.
Construction features on the


approximately 55,000-acre proj-
ect include removing or degrad-
ing more than 260 miles of roads,
installing three pump stations,
backfilling and plugging 40 miles
of canals and distributing over-
land flows via spreader canals.
Progress to date includes:
Invested $125 million to place
in public ownership 54,310 acres,
which represents 99 percent of
the land required to complete the
restoration project.
Filled and plugged 7 miles of
the Prairie Canal.
Completed 25 percent of the
road removal necessary for res-
toration.
Documented environmental
benefits on 13,000 acres of re-
stored area to date.
Initiated remediation of con-
taminated sites and completed re-
moval of structures, facilities and
debris, including tires, asphalt,
concrete and vehicles.


Completed 100 percent of
the design plans for the project's
restoration elements and pump
stations, along with required per-
mits.
The SFWMD initiated rule de-
velopment in February 2008 for a
reservation of water identified for
the Picayune Strand Restoration
Project. This rule fulfills the re-
quirement of the Water Resourc-
es Development Act (WRDA) of
2000 to reserve or allocate the
water identified for the natural
system in the Project Imple-
mentation Report, approved by
Congress. The Picayune Strand
Restoration Project is one of the
Comprehensive Everglades Res-
toration Plan (CERP) projects au-
thorizetd by Congress in the Wa-
ter Resources Development Act
(WRDA) of 2007.

Author Larry Davies, in his
book Sowing Seeds of Faith in a
World Gone Bonkers, tells a story
with which many of us can iden-
tify.
He says the check-out line at
his local grocery store was long
and he was in a hurry.
Seeing another line nearby
nearly empty, he walked over and
stood behind the only customer
still to make a purchase.
A young twenty-something
woman was holding a small bas-
ket with fifteen to twenty jars of
baby food.
There was nothing else in the
basket: just baby food.
"This is great," he thought.


"She'll only be a minute and I can
be on my way."
The clerk took the woman's
check for seven dollars and for-
ty-three cents and efficiently typed
in the numbers and slid it in the
proper slot on the register.
, At this point the cash drawer
was supposed to open and a re-
ceipt printed, but not this time.
A light began to blink: "See
Manager."
The clerk called on the inter-
com for the manager while run-
ning the check through again on
her register.
The same sign kept flashing:
"See Manager."
"Oh no!" thought Davies. "Not
another delay. I'm in a hurry and
don't need for the cash register to
break down."
When the manager arrived,
however, he didn't even .look
at the cash register, but instead


picked up the check and began to
talk to the customer.
Davies could feel the muscles
in his stomach tighten as the real-
ity of what was happening struck
him.
The check for seven dollars
and forty-three cents was no good
and the manager was quietly say-
ing she could not buy her baby
food here.
The clerk quickly set the gro-
ceries aside, closed her account
and began to ring up Davies' pur-
chase.
"She should manage her
money better!" Davies tried to
convince himself while leaving
the store.
But his flimsy excuses would
not erase the picture in his mind
of a grocery basket with jars of
baby food.
Davies writes, "At this point, I
want to finish the story by writing


how I approached the 'manager
and offered to pay for the pur-
chase of the baby food. It was the
right thing to do.
"I don't have much money,
but I can afford seven dollars and
forty-three cents. Instead, hiding
my light under a bowl, I turned
my head and walked away.
"There are no acceptable
excuses. I had a great opportu-
nity to help someone and walked
away."
Losing sight of who we are
and what we're called to do can
be easy in these hectic days.


In afterlife, Heaven remains the 'Desired Destiny'


The choice of the
beyond is ours to
make

By Jackie Miller
In last week's column I stated
that the Bible teaches only two
destinies, Hell and Heaven.
I pointed out that the Scrip-
tures teach that Hell is a horrible
place of eternal punishment.
Jesus said: "the gate that leads
to Hell is wide, and the way is
broad that leadeth to destruction
and many there be which go in
threat: because strait is the gate,
and narrow is the way which
leadeth unto life, and few there be


that find it." (Matthew 7:13-14).
This is in spite of the fact "that
God is not willing than any should
perish but that all would come to
repentance."
Now let us turn our attention
to something more pleasant,
Heaven.
Our Lord says in John 14:2-3,
"In my Father's house are many
mansions; if it were not so I
would have told you. I go to pre-
pare a place for you. And if I go
and prepare a place for you, I will
come again and receive you unto
Myself; that where I am, there you
may be also."
Heaven will be a very wonder-
ful place.
For the FEW who go there


it will be beyond their wildest
dreams and they will be totally
surprised and amazed.
As we read in I Corinthians 2:9
"Eye has -not seen, nor ear heard,
nor have entered into the heart
of man the things which God
has prepared for those who love
Him."
There is no way that the glo-
ries of Heaven can be adequately
described to us mortal beings.
The only way will be to see it.
Heaven will be the very oppo-
site of eternal punishment. Revela-
tion 21:4 says "And God will wipe
away every tear from their eyes:
there shall be no more death, nor
sorrow, nor crying. There shall
be no more pain, for the former


things have passed away."
There will be no weeping, no
wailing, and no gnashing of teeth
as will be happening in eternal
tbrment.
But there will be nothing but
joy, peace and happiness beyond.
description.
What a wonderful place Heav-
en will be.
But again, the choice is ours.
We cannot escape the conse-
quences if we make the wrong
choice.
We will not accidently end up
in Heaven.
Heaven is a prepared place for
a prepared people.
Our Lord says in Matthew 6:33,
"But seek ye first the Kingdom of


God and His righteousness, and
all these things shall be added
unto you."
To go to Heaven one must put
"spiritual things'" above "material
or worldly things."
The Apostle Paul said in Ga-
latians 2:20 "I am crucified with
Christ; nevertheless I. live; yet not
I, but Christ liveth in me: and the
life which I now live in the flesh I
live by the faith of the Son of God,
who loved me, and gave Himself
for me."
The only ones who will make it
to Heaven, who have reached the
age of accountability, are those
who believe the Gospel of Jesus
Christ (that He died for their sins,
was buried, and arose again from


the dead- I Cor. 15:1-4) Repent of
Sins (regret that they have sinned
and decide to refrain from sinning
- Luke 13:5, Acts 17:30-31), Con-
fess faith in Jesus Christ Matthew
10:32-33, are Baptized into Christ
(immersed in water for the remis-
sion of sins to receive the Holy
Spirit- Mark 16:16; Acts 2:38, Acts
8:36-39, Romans 6:3-5, and then
remain faithful to Christ until they
die, Revelation 2:10, Acts 2:42, I
Corinthians 15:58.
Jesus said concerning little
children, "of such is the Kingdom
of Heaven."


Wisdom from others; Darwin or Recidivism, and faith


Why resistance to
change is never a
good thing

By The Reverend Samuel
S. Thomas, Ph. D.
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When there was a government
- proposal to build a dam on Indian
lands, many of the native people
told the engineers that it wouldn't
work.
The government brought in
engineers and experts; tested
the soil, checked the ground for
structural stability, measured the
proposed water flow, looked into
the pressures against the dam
and did all of the calculations they
thought needed.
They went ahead and built the
dam.
Water flowed underneath it
and the banks supporting it be-
gan to give way.
The dam failed to stop the wa-
ter as was intended.
Someone asked one of the In,-


dians how he knew that the dam
would not work there.
He told them "Simple, beavers
won't build datns on that site."
Someone had neglected to
read the signs in front of them.
Another observation from In-
dian culture was about pine trees
and palm trees.
, The pine tree, they pointed
out, stands firm and erect, rigid
and is fixed.
They resist winds no matter
which way they blow.
The palm tree, though, is sub-
ject to winds and will bend over
when the winds get strong.
When the winds are very
strong, the pine tree snaps and
the palm tree lays down; only to
snap up again when the winds
have passed but the pine tree is
destroyed.
The palm adapts to what is go-
ing on around it, but remains true
to its roots; The pine tree loses
what it has to contribute to the
forest and environment.
Sometimes individuals and
groups are like that too.


People or groups or churches
become set in their ways and ig-
nore the winds around them the
best they can. .
They resist anywinds of change
and the signs that are brought by
what is going on around them.
They may find themselves
alone and out of touch with the
people they hope to serve or are
living in another place.
Others adopt to change and
see what is being said by what is
happening or try to take meaning
from how things are unfolding.
The message is "What is God
saying by what is going on?"
Darwin and Lincoln both lived
in a time of cataclysmic change;
both saw things in a new way,.
both read the signs of the times
differently than others around
them.
Darwin did not see the teach-
ings of the religion in his day-as
others did; but he did not destroy
religion.
Rather, he gave a new under-
standing and with it a means of
incorporating revealed knowl-


edge to get closer to the truths
about God's creation.
The faithful learned to adapt
and incorporate what was given
to them; they remained true to
their heritage and roots after all.
They read the signs of their
times; learned and grew.
We live in a time of change,
too.
We need to ask "What is God
saying to us by what is going on
around us?"
We can change directions but
remain true to our roots, we can
adapt to what is happening in our
world, or we can seek to retreat.
The Reformation was a time
of such upheaval too; beliefs
changed with enlightenment and
the gifts of revelation that God
shared; many faiths grew deeper
and stronger in spite of all of the
resistance to the winds of change
or failure to read the signs being
given.
My church is certainly not the
same church as I attended when
I was a child, or when I was or-
dained; but it is still the Church.


Personally, I have changed what type didn't want.

The Hendry/Glades community health fair on Feb. 15 attracted many residents who were
in need of medical services. Entertainment such as a kid's bounce house was part of the
event.


in fields such as family medicine,
pediatrics, obstetrics, gynecology,
general surgery, psychiatry, and
behavioral medicine. Delivery

jects; and then significantly, the
body's soft internal organs con-
tinue moving forward and strike

forward momentum.
Debra Stallings, DOT, agreed
that facing backward is better and
many car seats are designed to
face the back of the seat.
"For children, the back seat is
safest with a rear facing car seat,"
she said.
Sergeant Donald Watts, GCSO
school resource officer, com-
mented that West Glades Elemen-
tary administrators have request-
ed a seat belt awareness class
to inform young students, who
then will hopefully pass on their


knowledge to family members
CTST members are planning
another seat belt usage survey
within Glades County to coincide
with the state's efforts in May. A
cell phone usage survey may be-
gin, too.
Debra Stallings commented
that we need to start addressing
cell phone usage now, because
early studies are showing that it
may be as dangerous as drinking
and driving or worse. She sug-
gested members and the public
take a look at a web site www.

Sgt. Donald Watts reported
that road patrol issued 364 tickets
for the month of January and 247
of those were in the city of Moore
Haven. Most were for speeding,
but 24 were issued for not using
seat belts.
Doug 'Maneke, road depart-
ment, and Tosha Reid, emergen-
cy management, were on hand to
report they had attended a dem-


onstration and training session on
how to free victims from hybrid
vehicles in a traffic accident. Ap-
parently there are serious hazards
to first responders associated
with electrical wiring while at-
tempting to cut the vehicle with
rescue equipment. The session
also covered the hazards of air
bags should they explode during
a rescue.
A current DOT construction
project in Glades County is ongo-
ing since January 2009 at S.R. 29
beginning at the Hendry/Glades
