Caloosahatchee
River tour was
sponsored by
Riverwatch

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

S"GLADES/HENDRY -- Mem-
bers of Riverwatch, SFWMD rep-
Sresentatives, U.S. Senator Connie
Mack's congressional aide and
local government officials met
at the LaBelle boat dock, Feb.


21. They went for a cruise along
the Caloosahatchee River on the
tour boat, Manatee.
It was a scenic, breezy setting
for the meeting that gave updates
on current issues of Everfglades
restoration and the anticipated
buy out of United States' Sugar
Corporation by SFWMD. River-,
watch is an organization created
for the benefit of the Caloosa-'
hatchee River. It strives to edu-
cate the public about the health
of the river and its estuaries.
John Capece, Riverwatch sec-
retary, reported that economic re-
development of the 'Glades area


and Herbert Hoover Dike repair
should have a significant bal-
ance with water management's
flow way plans. The Riverwatch
organization realizes many envi-
ronnmental engineering plans are
not yet e\ident.
'"We are one of the few envi-
ronmental organizations that has
riot endorsed the sugar buy out."
said Mr. Capece.
He went on to encourage
legislators to make plans and
voice their ideas on economic
concerns for the Okeechobee
region, as well as flow way solu-
tions.


Needed: a healthy river and a healthy economy


INI/Nena Bolan
Local agencies, organizations and government officials held a meeting on a tour boat
sponsored by Riverwatch. The buy out of the sugar company and the local economy
were discussed. Wayne Daltry, Lee County Smart Growth, talks to the group, Feb. 21.
The Caloosahatchee River tour began at the LaBelle boat dock.


INI/Nena Bolan
This is the sugar cane harvest in Glades County near Moore Haven. The area's work
force is concerned about the buy out of the largest employer in the region.


John Capece mentioned that
the agriculture system in south
Florida should seriously consider
using diverse products and low-
er intensity farming methods.
Ecological and financial innova-
lions cannot be achieved over-
night, 'but should begin in ear-
nest. Also, Mr. Capece told the
environmental and state agency
attendees that it does not make
sense jo chase agriculture out of
south Florida and into another
part of the %world.
Lee County's Smart Growth
director, Wayne Daltry, reminded
those at the meeting that many


days there are concerns about
too much dirty water, and on
other days there are concerns
that we cannot get enough water
from Lake Okeechobee and the
Caloosathchee River Basin. He
commented that we must assist
one another and keep the whole
economic engine running, be-
cause Florida competes with
the rest of the world. Mr. Daltry
asked those present to look to-
ward economic opportunities
for the entire river basin.

Commissioners



discuss code



enforcement


LaTosha Reiss and
Pastor Thom Street
recognized for
accomplishments

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

GLADES COUNTY -- The
board of county commission-
ers and the public safety de-
partment recognized: LaTosha
Reiss, emergency manage-
ment, for her dedication to her,
job and her training pursuits,
Ms. Reiss received an associate
emergency manager certificate,
completed 50 hours of train-
ing, contributed, professional
speeches and plans, worked at
two disaster experiences and
three exercises.
Pastor Thom Street was
also recognized by the board
and emergency management
department. He has worked
with Glades County Emergency
Management for many years
teaching classes and working
as a HAM radio operator. He
was chosen as Florida's Vol-
unteer of the Year at the con-
vention of Florida Emergency
Preparedness Association in
Orlando, Feb. 11.
A burn ban was approved
by the board. The ordinance
created for the ban will seek
state approval. Bob Jones,
public safety director, cautions
residents to not have any open
fires. There have already been
several brush fires in the coun-
ty.
Deputy county manager,


Larry Hilton, brought forth in-
formation dealing with code
enforcement actions in the
Washington Park community.
He mentioned numerous code
'violations are in the community
and letters to property owners
have been sent asking them to
correct the problems. He ex-
plained that there are 133 lots
there with 26 homes on 24 lots
being dilapidated and/or falling
down.
The dwellings are not fix-
able. Also- trash is dumped on
the lots without the property
owners knowledge, if they re-
side elsewhere. Mr. Hilton com-
mented that code enforcement
will work .with the owners on
a schedule, but some may end
up before Judge Lundy in court
and/or fines may be placed.
There is also the possibility of
foreclosure or assumptions.
The county commissioners
discussed various remedies
and commented on the situa-
tion. Commissioner Paul Beck
mentioned that working with
the property owners is prefer-
able, although cleanup have
happened periodically and
eventually the code violations
return to the area. He knows
drainage is also a problem for
some residents. Mr. Beck seeks
input from property owners in
Washington Park.
Butch Jones, commissioner,
discussed the historical signifi-
cance of Washington Park. He
also commented that cleanup
have taken place and the prob-
lem continues.
"I don't know what the solu-
tion is now," said Mr. Jones.

LOcal pilot flies once again I


Glades and Hendry
Counties are rich
with aviation
history

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat.

GLADES/HENDRY -- On Feb.
15, Glenn Stewart, 79, took to
the skies again and flew a Piper
Cub airplane over Glades and
Hendry Counties' farm land.
Glenn was an aviation pioneer
of the late 1940's and 1950's.
South Florida was a perfect
training ground for a boy who


"flew by the seat of his pants."
The vast rural area was mostly'
devoid of power and telephone
lines, and many dirt roads
could serve as a landing strip.
If there was engine trouble, a
cow pasture served just as well
if needed.
Glenn Stewart grew up in
Rainey Slough, Glades County,
which is between Muse and
Venus. He helped the family
survive the Great Depression by
hunting wild game and farming
the land. His older brother, Wil-
ton, learned how to fly in 1945
at Riddle Field in Clewiston at
the end of World War Two. Wil-
ton was too young to enter the
war, but he gassed up planes


for the Canadian and British
pilots, and sometimes got paid
with flying lessons. This was a
blessed opportunity for bare-
foot boys from Rainey Slough.
Glenn was greatly inspired
by flight and in 1947 he took
lessons at Opalocka Airport
near, Miami. His life evolved
rapidly into the 20th century
when he flew solo for the first
time. It was not long before he
and his brother became flight
instructors for Embry Riddle,
a pioneer aviation industry.
From a young man's viewpoint
though, the most fascinating
thing about flight was how it
See Pilot Page 12


INI/Nena Bolan
Glenn Stewart, left, learned to fly in south Florida in 1947. He
has a lifetime of flight stories to tell. He went for another flight
on Feb. 15, thanks to pilot, Mike Swindle of Clewiston.

Deer colorblind to orange, but if you glow


Another fall hunting season
is winding down, and while the
sport continues to be very safe,
there have been some accidental
shootings that could have been
prevented. Not all of those who
were involved in'the shooting ac-
cidents were wearing the proper
amount of sometimes-required
and always-recommended hunt-
er orange.
If hunters think they are re-
ducing the likelihood that deer
will see them by forgoing orange
safety hats and vests, they are mis-
taken. What deer can and cannot
see is surprising.
"Deer are somewhat color-
blind," said Cory Morea, deer
management program coordina-
tor for the Florida Fish and Wild-
life Conservation Commission
(FWC).
"During the day, deer see col-
ors in what we could consider
blue to yellow-green," added Eli-
na Garrison, a biologist with the
FWC's Fish and Wildlife Research
Institute. "Some believe they are
completely red-green colorblind,
like some humans," she said.
Wearing orange is a good
practice when afield during any
hunting season.
"Not properly identifying your
target and what is beyond, is


the leading cause of hunting fa-
talities," according to the FWC's
"2007-08 Florida Hunting Incident
Report."
Although animal vision is often
much better than human sight,
distinguishing colors in daylight is
not a strong point for the white-
tailed deer, although detecting UV
light is.
Drs. R. Larry Marchinton and
Karl V. Miller of the University of
Georgia studied what white-tailed
deer see in daylight. Scientists
from California and' Wiscon-
sin also participated in the 1993
study.
The study showed that white-
tailed deer have two classes of
cone photoreceptors; humans
have three. Deer have dichro-
matic (two-color) vision; humans
have trichromatic vision. So what
deer don't see are the oranges
and reds that stand out so well
to people. These facts have been
echoed by others:
"Idaho law does not require
the wearing of hunter orange
but it is highly recommended,"
according to that state's hunter-
education information. "It is a
color not found in nature, and
most game animals cannot see
the bright fluorescent color, since
they are colorblind."


The International Hunter
Education Association advises,
"Wearing highly visible hunter or
'blaze' orange clothing makes it
much easier for other hunters to
see you and increases your safety
while hunting. That's why the
majority of states and provinces
recommend or require hunter
orange clothing for most kinds of
hunting activities."
Here is the rule in Florida: "It
is unlawful to hunt deer or to ac-
company another person hunting
deer on public lands unless each
persori is wearing a minimum
of 500 square inches of daylight-
fluorescent orange material as
an outer garment ... above the
waistline."
The reasoning is sound, ac-
cording to the U.S. Centers for
Disease Control. In its report
titled "Hunting-associated inju-
ries and wearing 'hunter' orange
clothing," the CDC noted that the
New York Department of Environ-
mental Conservation and the N.Y.
Department of Health analyzed
hunting-associated injuries from
1989 to 1995. "The findings in-
dicate that most injured hunters
in two-party incidents were not
wearing hunter orange."
One caveat: Some hunters are
colorblind too and may not detect

gallons per month) and Individual
(more than 15 million gallons per
month) permits for withdrawals
from the Lake Okeechobee Basin
expire February 28, 2009.
A workshop for permit hold-
ers is scheduled from 10 a.m. to
noon on Wednesday, February
25, at the District's Clewiston Field
Station, located at 2425 Hookers
Point Road. The workshop will
address the renewal process, pro-"
cessing fees, deadlines and any
other questions permit holders
might have.
In late 2003, the District began
renewing all Individual, and Major
General water use irrigation per-


mits within its boundaries in re-
gional phases. The irrigation uses
allowed by the permits include:
*Landscape
*Golf course
Nursery
Livestock
*Improved pasture
*Agriculture .
The District required every
permit within each basin to come
up for renewal at the same time
so the cumulative impact of the
permits could be considered.
The last permits to be reviewed
are the approximately 420 that
allow surface water withdrawals
from the Lake Okeechobee Ba-
sin, which includes the lake, the
Caloosahatchee River and the St.
Lucie River/Canal.
The renewal process consists


of the review and reissuance of
the originalpermit as long as no
changes in source, irrigated acre-
age, land use or water allocation
have occurred since the origi-
nal permit was issued. A permit
modification is required if any of
those conditions have changed.
Renewal fees are based on the
permit holder's allocation.
Application reviewers encour-
age permit holders to renew
through the District's ePermitting
service at www.sfwmd.gov/ePer-
mitting. The renewal application
and more information on the re-
newal process are also available
on .the District's Water Use Irriga-
tion Permit Renewal Web site.

tion can call 800-547-2694.

the orange clothing. The FWC
says, "Colorblind hunters must
use extra caution. They may have
trouble identifying game and rec-
ognizing hunter-fluorescent or-
ange.
"Good vision is the foundation
for good shooting and hunting
safety. Have your eyes examined
on a regular basis."
A second caveat: A deer's keen
vision includes detecting UV light,
according to manufacturers of
hunter clothing. Some cite stud-
ies indicating that deer can detect
clothing made or washed with
UV brighteners. If so, hunters not
only should wear orange; they
should be careful what else they
wear in the woods to be more ef-
fective.
According to "How Game Ani-
mals See and Smell," a book by
Kurt von Besser of Atsko/Sno-Seal
Inc., most camouflage clothes
and laundry detergents con-
tain UV brighteners, which deer
can detect. He says that hunters
can avoid brighteners by choos-
ing camouflage outfits that are
manufactured free of brighteners
and by washing them only with
a laundry detergent free of UV
brighteners.

Abandoned Spanish Settlements and Forts


Early settlements
and confrontations
shape the relations of
the Native Americans
and the Spanish

By Butch Wilson
Clewiston Museum
Fiery comets streaked across
the black empty space of night,
marking their flight with long,
thin vaporous trails of smoke that
arced across the heavens.
The flaming arrows hummed
like angry bees as they plum-
meted earthward, striking the
thatched roofs of the Spanish
shelters. -
Gray wisps of smoke drifted
upward from the smothering
palm fronds until amber flames,
stroked by the stiff ocean breezes,
raced hungrily across the dwell-
ings, creating white, billowing
clouds that spiraled skyward.
The quietly settled twilight
awoke to an early pre-dawn as
the roaring fires clawed at the
night sky.
Wild, excited crowds danced
themselves into a hysterical fren-
zy as the burning inferno swept
across the entire Spanish settle-
ment.
Raging flames consumed the
huts and walled barricades, turn-
ing them into fire pyres that burnt
into the night.
The thunderous sound of many
voices rose like a storm above the
fire's crackling roar as chants and
songs echoed the unconquerable
will of the Calusa nation.
This fictitious yarn reflects Na-
tive Indian culture that resisted
Spain's early encroachments in
south Florida during the 15th and
early 16th centuries.
It is time to take "A Walk in The
Past" and read about the demise
of the Spanish forts and missions
in south Florida during the 15th
century.
South Florida was a vast wet-
land integrated with lakes, rivers,
sloughs and swamps that rose
and fell at nature's whim.
It was a hostile environment to

St. Augustine being one early settlement in Florida, it was just one of many important settlements of Florida history. Forts
in Tampa Bay, in the province of Calus and on the Miami River were instrumental in the development of foreign settlers in
Florida.


the early Spanish expeditions that
came in search of riches, but to
their dismay found warlike Indi-
ans and hardships.
The Spanish built forts along
Florida's coast to protect their
rich laden ships and citizens from
the Native Indians and other Eu-
ropean nations.
Early Spanish forts and settle-
ments in south Florida were lo-
cated on Tampa Bay, Charlotte
Harbor and the Miami River.
These locations were strategic
areas that provided fresh water
and natural harbors for ships.
The fort locations built in south
Florida during the 15th century
are listed below:
A fort and settlement on
an islet in the province of Calus


called St. Antonio.
It was started with thirty six
houses that were encircled with a
wall of logs and sticks.
The Calusa Indians rebelled
against the Spanish and Pedro
Menendez Marques beheaded
Casique Felipe and twenty-two
other leading Indians.
He abandoned the fort in
1571.
A fort was started on
Tampa Bay with twenty-four
houses.
The supplies went bad due to
heavy rains and the soldiers grew
weak.
The Tocobaga Indians killed
everyone in the fort.
Pedro Menendez Marques
burnt the Indian villages and fort


to the ground. The Spanish aban-
doned the fort in 1567.
A fort and mission was
started in 1567 on the Miami Riv-
er.
The Tequesta Indians killed
several soldiers and constantly
threatened the fort.
The Spanish abandoned the
fort in 1570.

There was a religious fervor in
Spain among the men of the cloth
to Christianize the Indians in the
New World.
The Spanish government en-
couraged missions in south Flor-
ida and for good reason.
It was a lot easier for a Span-
iard in South Florida to. sleep at
night if he knew the Native Amer-


ican was following the Christian
creed, "Love thy neighbor as thy-
self" rather than following an an-
cient creed that would make the
Spaniard'.s decapitated head the
life of the party.
The Calusa, Tequesta and
other tribes in south Florida were
fiercely independent and warlike.
The religious and social cus-
toms that they believed were in-
grained in their lives by tradition.
Some of their customs were
bad.
A child was- sacrificed when
a Casique (king) lost a child and
house hold members were sacri-
ficed when a Casique died.
Yearly human sacrifices were
made to their idols.

teach the Indians the Christian


Glades Central's basketball season ends


+ Cewiston, Glades
Day eked out close
wins in their regional
quarterfinal games

By Naji Tobias
INI Florida
SOUTH LAKE REGION -
Clewiston, won't be facing off
against Glades Central after all.
It would have been nice to see
both boys basketball teams make
it to the Class 4A Final Four, but
for Glades Central, it just didn't
work out.
The Raiders, who 'finished
their season at 20-7, lost their
regional quarterfinal matchup to
Rockledge, 56-53.
Glades Central's season end-
ed on a game-winning layup by
Rockledge's Ralph Williams, who
scored 34 points in the game.
Tied at 53 late in the Feb. 19
game, Williams stole the ball
from Glades Central's Antwon
Chisolm, took it coast-to-coast'


and put in the winning layup.
Williams followed through
with a free-throw after being
fouled, which sealed the deal in
Glades Central's loss.
Interestingly, Glades Cen-
tral 'had the lead throughout the
game, but simply could not stop
Rockledge's best player.
For that alone, perhaps, the
Raiders are now forced to look
forward to next season.
As for Clewiston, they moved
on to the Class 4A regional semifi-
nals after a close 60-58 home win
against Golden Gate on Feb. 19.
Clewiston, who improved to
21-4 after the win, scored a road
date with District 12-4A winner
Naples'Lely.
The District 11-4A winner
played Naples Lely on Tuesday
night.
"I'm so proud of how our
team is doing do far," Clewiston
head coach Willie Lee said hours
before the game against Lely..
"I love this team because
they've accomplished a lot this
year.


In 2006, Clewiston lost to Lely
in the Class 4A regional quarter-
finals.
But Lee, who knows the vast
potential that his team carries,
preferred to be realistic when
asked on Clewiston's chances of
advancing to the Class 4A region-
al final on Saturday.
"All we can do is work hard
and do our best," Lee said in a
telephone interview on Tuesday
afternoon, while preparing for the
team's bus ride to Naples.
"God's in control, no matter
how we see it.
"This is what we worked hard
for since the summer," Lee con-
tinued.
"This team has the chance to
make its own history," Lee said.
Clewiston's last trip to the FH-
SAA Final Four was in 1992.
.Glades Day also earned the op-
portunity to make its own history,
as well.
After a 49-45 road win against
2008 Class 2A state runner-up
Sagemont (Weston), Glades Day
knew who its next opponent


was.
The Gators (20-6 after the Class
2A regional quarterfinal win)
played Summit Christian in West
Palm Beach on Tuesday night.
It marked the fourth time that
the archrivals faced off against
each other.
Glades Day lost two of three
meetings to Summit Christian pri-
or to the Class 2A regional semifi-
nal matchup.
That includes Glades, Day's 45-
44 loss in the District 13-2A cham-
pionship game.
Had Glades Day won that
game, then they would have been
the home team Tuesday night.
The Glades Day-Summit Chris-
tian winner will play on Saturday
night for the right to move on the
Class 2A Final Four, which is on
March 5.
If Glades Day makes it to the
Class 2A Final Four, it would be
the first in school history, capping
off an amazing season they've
had.

U.S. Sugar confronts possible takeover bid


U.S. Sugar declares
dividend distribution
of stockholder
purchase rights; a
measure against
takeover bids

CLEWISTON, February 23,
2009-The Board of Directors of
United States Sugar Corporation
declared the adoption of a Stock-
holder Rights Plan and a dividend
distribution of one "Purchase
Right" for each outstanding share
of its common stock.
"Basically the Stockholder


Rights Plan and Purchase Right
distribution are legal tools de-
signed to assure that the Com-
pany's stockholders receive fair
and equal treatment in the event
of a hostile takeover of the Com-
pany," said Robert Coker, senior
vice president, public affairs.
"By hostile, I refer to a bid-
der who does not negotiate with
our Board, who could offer only
some of our stockholders a high
price to gain control of U.S. Sugar
and offer less to the remaining
stockholders," Coker said.
"It is not intended to deter or
discourage bona fide offers and
proposals that the Board in good
faith determines are fair, advis-
able and in the best interests of all


of the Company's stockholders,"
Coker said.
"What happens with the
Stockholder Rights Plan in place
is that when someone buys 15%
of U.S. Sugar's stock, the Board
can trigger an exchange of 'rights'
for stock, in essence doubling the
number of shares held by remain-
ing shareholders.
"The hostile bidder does not
receive the additional shares, and
in this example, the 15% would
be diluted to approximately 8%,"
Coker said.
Coker said that sharehold-
ers and employees are being
informed of the distribution in a
letter accompanied by legal docu-
ments outlining the benefit.


"This action does not affect
the number of shares or the value
of shares a shareholder currently
owns.
"It has no impact unless trig-
gered by a hostile action," said
Coker.
"The whole purpose of the
Stockholder Rights Plan is to al-
low the Board to properly exer-
cise its fiduciary duties as it con-
siders alternative transactions and
to protect all stockholders from
coercive and discriminatory take-
over attempts," Coker said.

doctrine, which conflicted with
many of the Indian's barbarous
customs.
Many honest priests practiced
and lived the Christian doctrine
in their hearts and were willing to
risk or lose their lives to convert
the Indians.
Unfortunately, many Spaniards
marched under the banner of
Christianity in a traditional form
and failed to adhere to the true
"Doctrine of Faith."
The Spanish soldiers per-
formed barbarous acts under the
guise of Christianity that spawned
seeds of hate and mistrust in the
Indian communities.
Christian doctrine and the con-
flicting roles that Spanish priest
and soldiers lived were confusing
to the Indians and encouraged
them to maintain all their reli-
giousand social customs.
The Jesuit missions were a
failure in South Florida in the 15th
and early 16th centuries.
Forts and missions were com-
pletely abandoned in south Flori-
da until the later part of the 16th
century.
There will be more "Tale Tales"
in next week's edition "A Walk in
The Past" when the Spanish re-
turn to south Florida in the late
1600s.
I hope you have enjoyed this
story.

if you have questions, artifacts,

Governor names 'Tobacco Free Florida Week'


TALLAHASSEE-Governor
Charlie Crist has proclaimed Feb.
27 through March 7, as Tobacco
Free Florida Week to promote
smoke-free living while remind-
ing tobacco users of programs
and support that are available to
help them quit.
During Tobacco Free Florida
Week, Floridians are encouraged
to take the pledge to be tobacco
free' on www.tobaccofreeflor-
idaweek.com.
In partnership with FOX Sports
Florida and Sun Sports, pro and
college teams around the State
are rallying behind the campaign.
Throughout the week, Tobacco
Free Florida will be the focal point
of eight sporting events for the
following teams: Orlando Magic,
Florida State University men's
basketball, Florida Marlins, Miami
HEAT, Tampa Bay Rays, Florida
Panthers, Tampa Bay Lightning


and University of Florida men's
basketball (see game schedule
below).
Total attendance at the eight
events is projected to top 100,000
with the televised games reach-
ing millions more across the state
on Sun Sports and FOX Sports
Florida.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week
presents a tremendous platform
for us to utilize our unique media
assets, along with those of our
sports team partners across the
state, in a concentrated, highly-
visible way and encourage Florid-
ians to pledge to be tobacco free,"
said Steve Liverani, Sr. VP/GM of
FOX Sports Florida & Sun Sports.
"The consequences of tobacco
use are well-documented and we
are proud to be part of this call to
action pledge campaign."
During the week, the Tobac-
co Free Florida Street Team and


Smokifier vans will travel around
the state to spread the message
and host school rallies featuring
athletes from Florida's pro teams.
"Tobacco Free Florida Week
is an opportunity to unite Florid-
ians against the leading cause of
preventable illness, disability and
premature death in Florida, says
Kim Berfield, Deputy Secretary of
the Florida Department of Health.
"By combining efforts of pro-
fessional and collegiate teams,
local County Health Departments
and other key tobacco prevention
stakeholders, we can further ex-
tend the reach' of the campaign's
message."
To counter the advertising ef-
forts of tobacco companies that
spends more money on advertis-
ing in Florida than in any other
state, Tobacco Free Florida's
statewideyouth prevention adver-
tising campaign will also aunch


that week, with television, radio,
cinema and print ads across the
state, encouraging youth to "Be
Free" from tobacco.
Smoking is responsible for up-
wards of 29,000 deaths in Florida
each year, and thousands more
suffer from cancer, heart disease
and other chronic diseases re-
lated to tobacco use and second-
hand smoke.
Nearly one out of every five
adult's smoke, and 28.8 million
packs of cigarettes are bought or
smoked by youth in Florida each
year.

Local cessation class will begin
on Thursday, Feb. 26, in LaBelle
and Clewiston, please contact the
Health Department at 863-674-

SFWMD committed to Solving Weedy Worries


District and its
partners recognize
National Invasive
Weeds Awareness
Week

West Palm Beach, FL -While
exotic pythons in the Everglades
have slithered across recent head-
lines, an invader equally insidi-
ous to the natural environment
remains at the forefront of the
South Florida Water Management
District's (SFWMD) mission to,
manage and protect the region's
water resources.
Non-native plants continue to
stress the natural environment by
crowding out native vegetation,
which a diverse array of wildlife
depend on for food and habitat.
Invasive plants can also clog
flood control canals and struc-
tures, impede waterway naviga-
tion and impact recreation and
other facets of the Florida econ-
omy.
As National Invasive Weeds
Awareness Week begins this
week, the SFWMD continues
its work to control exotic plants
while at the same time identifying
and mustering defenses against
new invaders.
The District has invested at
least $20 million in each of the
past five years to remove the most
threatening invasive species, such
as Old World climbing fern, Bra-
zilian pepper and water hyacinth.
In 2008 alone, the District
treated more than 92,400 acres
to combat Melaleuca, torpedo
grass, the climbing fern and other
offenders.
"Invasion of exotic plant spe-
cies remains one of the most seri-
ous environmental issues facing
Florida," said SFWMD Governing
Board Chair Eric Buermann.
"Controlling these invaders
is a key component of the Dis-
trict's environmental restoration
mission and'is crucial to public
safety."
Along with environmental and
public safety concerns, exotic
plant species cost the agricultural
industry alone more than $20 bil-
lion annually, according to the
North American Weed Manage-
ment Association.
SFWMD Invests in Biocontrols
and Science:

Park in Martin County.
The SFWMD, in partnership
with the U.S. Department of Ag-
riculture's Agricultural Research
Service, released a thousand Neo-
musotima conspurcatalis moths
at the park in 2008.
The moths lay eggs that morph
into caterpillars that chew through
dense stands of the invasive Old
World climbing fern without
harming native Florida ferns.
The SFWMD supports contin-
ued applied scientific research
that improves management ef-
forts.
To further facilitate that ef-
fort, the District participates in
key partnerships with agencies'
including: the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion (FWC); the Florida Depart-
ment of Environmental Protec-
tion; the U.S. Fish and Wildlife
Service; the USDA's Agricultural
Research Service; the U.S. Army
Corps of Engineers and the U.S.
Department of the Interior.
An example of these partner-
ships was the' coordination be-
tween the District and the FWC to
combat Brazilian pepper in Water


Conservation Area 3, benefiting
the native population of deer and
birds.
The District has taken several
other steps toward curbing inva-
sive plant species:
July 2008: The SFWMD part-
nered with Palm Beach County
to remove non-native plants from
150 acres in the DuPuis Manage-
ment Area.
July 2008: The District Gov-
erning Board approved an agree-
ment with the USDA's Agricultural
Research Service to continue de-
veloping biological controls in
the form of tiny insects to fight
Brazilian pepper and Old World
climbing fern.
March 2008: Scientists intro-
duced nearly 20,000 grass carp
into the North New River Canal by
Fort Lauderdale. The hungry fish,
which do not breed, feast on the
rapidly growing invasive hydrilla
plant that can clog structures in
SFWMD flood-control canals.
A Success Story:
Melaleuca remains an ex-
ample of the District's success in
managing exotics.
Once covering hundreds of


thousands of acres, this species
now is only occasionally spotted
on District-managed lands.
What seemed to be an insur-
.mountable invasive species now
is being successfully managed
through sustained interagency
commitment.
The District-led Melaleuca
management program is in its
nineteenth year, and resource
management agencies estimate
this program has cost nearly $40
million to date.
Florida's Melaleuca manage-
ment program is a model for in-
vasive species management na-
tionally.
Continued Vigilance:
The SFWMD has located two
invasive aquatic plants newly dis-
covered in Florida, Luziola subin-
tegra and Azolla pinnata.
Containing these new prob-
lems in a "rapid response" effort
has required clearly identifying
the plants and then determining
their best management practices.
Residents also play an impor-
tant role in the protection of South
Florida's environment.
One of the primary ways that
invasive species, ;both plant and
animal, end up in the natural envi-
ronment is when they are thrown
out or released by people who no
longer want them.
For example, emptying a tropi-
cal aquarium full of live but non-
native aquatic plants can have
serious consequences for the en-
vironment.
SFWMD Senior Scientist Mike
Bodle discussed invasive plants
and the District's management
efforts.

District's efforts to control exotic
invasive species, visit www.sf-

A legitimate role for the ptess is that of "the public's watchdog." Most cit-
izens can't spend the time necessary to personally observe their public
officials at work, or to determine how well public institutions are carrying
out their public mission.

But too many newspapers these days act more like "mad dogs" than
"watchdogs."

We're proud to be different. We try to carry out our "watchdog" role as
humble representatives of the public, always maintaining a courteous
tone and our reputation for purposeful neutrality.

Walking: Long and Slow, Short and Fast?


Some people may wonder if
it's better to walk a long distance
at a slow pace or a short distance
at a fast pace.
Well, studies have shown that
no matter the distance or the
pace, "hoofing it" adds so many
health benefits.
So it's better to walk some,
than nothing at all!
To burn the most calories
however, (from every minute


that you are squeezing out of you
busy schedule) you should walk
very briskly.
Speedy walking can help your
heart and lungs to become stron-
ger.
A new study by the Centers for
Disease Control and Prevention
(CDC) found that brisk walking
on a regular basis can also length-
en the lives of people who have
diabetes.


Some people may also won-
der if walking in the morning is
better than walking at night.
Well, a calorie burned, is a cal-
orie burned, whether it's morning
or night.
The important thing is to
choose a time that fits best with
your schedule so that you are
more likely to stick with it.
No matter how young or how
old you are, walking is one of the


easiest things we can do for our
bodies.
Grab a friend, your children or
your pet and "hit the pavement."
Turn it into an adventure, and
you'll have some fun while be-
coming healthier.
Walking can help build and
maintain healthy bones, muscles
and joints, and reduce the risk
of coronary heart disease, high
blood pressure, and diabetes.


It can also help reduce symp-
toms of anxiety and depression
and help to control the swelling
and pain from arthritis.
Walking can also help to con-
trol weight, build lean muscle and
reduce fat.
So get out there and get mov-
ing.


FWC use magnets to keep crocodiles away


Magnets usually attract, but the
Florida Fish and Wildlife Conser-
vation Commission (FWC) want
magnets to do just the opposite.
FWC biologists are studying if
magnets can keep state-endan-
gered American crocodiles from
returning to situations where
they are not welcome, primarily
in neighborhoods in Miami-Dade
and Monroe counties.
Crocodile-human interactions
have increased as the croco-
dile population has recovered.
One technique- to resolve these
conflicts is translocation. This
involves capturing the croco-
dile and moving it to suitable
crocodile habitat as far away as
possible, in an attempt to keep
it away from an area. However,
translocation is seldom effective.
FWC biologists have found that
translocated crocodiles will travel
an average of 10 miles per week
to return to their capture site, ir a
practice called "homing." Others


never make it because they are
hit and killed by vehicles as they
cross roads. Some may be killed
by other crocodiles at the release
site or during their journey back.


In an effort to break the "hom-
ing" cycle, FWC biologists have
initiated a new study. Crocodile
agents have been instructed to at-
tach magnets to both sides of the

release site.


crocodile's. head at the capture
site. It is hoped the magnets will
disorient the crocodiles and dis-
rupt their navigation, so they can't
find their way back to the capture
site. The magnets are removed
from the crocodile's head upon
release. Agents will also secure a
colored tag to the crocodile's tail,
so returning. crocodiles can be
identified later.
"Scientists in Mexico have re-
ported success in using magnets
to break the homing cycle," said
Lindsey Hord, FWC crocodile re-
sponse coordinator. "The results
of the study are promising. If it
proves successful here, we could
gain an effective technique to re-
solve crocodile-human conflicts."
If a nuisance crocodile contin-'
ues to return to the capture site,
or its behavior presents an un-
acceptable risk to people, under
certain circumstances, it could
be removed from the wild and
placed into captivity.

Potential skin damage from


"Black Henna" tattoo


Chubby Babies Are Cute,


But Are They Healthy?


Tallahassee The Florida De-
partment of Health (DOH) warns
students of potential health risks
from having a temporary "black
henna" tattoo applied to their
skin.
This issue is especially impor-
tant as more than 250,000 stu-
dents are expected to hit Florida
beaches for 2009 "Spring Break"
which extends from mid Febru-
ary to mid April.
Last year, DOH received 17 re-
ports of severe allergic reactions
to temporary black henna tattoos
applied in one of Florida's beach
communities.
"Black henna" tattoos have
become popular in recent years
because they look more like a
"real" tattoo.
In reality, there is no such thing
as "black henna."
True henna paste is green or
greenish brown and must remain
on the skin eight hours or over-
night to leave a brown or reddish-


brown design.
The paste for a "black henna"
tattoo is black or brownish-black
and can be removed in one hour
or less to leave a black design.
The danger of "black henna"
tattoos is that the black color may
be a result of the addition of black
hair dye, which may contain a
toxic chemical called para-phe-
nylenediamine (PPD).
PPD can cause severe allergic
reactions in some individuals.
The general progression of
symptoms is itching or burning,
blistering, oozing, scab forma-
tion, and sometimes permanent
scarring in the shape of the tattoo
design.
Symptoms may occur within a
few hours or up to a few weeks,
depending upon the concentra-
tion of PPD in the paste and how
allergic a person is.
Medical attention should be
sought immediately upon any
symptoms of an allergic reaction.


In addition to medical attention,
allergic reactions should be re-
ported electronically to DOH on
the Injury Report Form found on
the department website at www.
doh.state.fl.us/Environment/com-
munity/Black_Henna/index.htm.
Temporary tattoo hints in-
clude:
Ensure the paste is green or
greenish-brown.
Ask to see the ingredients,
which should be ground henna
leaves, lemon or grapefruit juice,
and possibly botanical oil.
Ask how long the paste should
stay on skin.
The answer should be eight
hours to overnight.
DOH promotes, protects and
improves the health of all people
in Florida. For more information
about DOH programs, visit www.
doh.state.fl.us.


How can you tell
when your child is
developing a weight
problem?
Obesity (being .overweight)
has become a major public
health concern for all ages.
Believe it or not, the prob-
lems actually start while you are
a baby.
People may say "oh what a
cute chubby little baby," but did
you know that overweight ba-
bies usually grow up to be over-
weight adults?
Obesity has been linked to
diabetes, heart disease and some
cancers.
It may be surprising, but even
six month old babies can show
evidence of diabetes and high
cholesterol.
It's so easy to stick a bottle


in a crying baby's mouth, but
sometimes it may not be hunger
that's causing the crying and you
are just training your baby to eat
something when they are upset.
Babies usually eat every three
hours or so, and they can even
recognize when they are full, so
don't try to force your little one
to "finish the bottle" if they don't
seem to want to continue eat-
ing.
Also, babies can develop a
"sweet tooth" at an early age.
Once your baby is big enough
to eat baby foods, start them on
some healthy vegetable types,
because once the sweet stuff
touches their lips, you'll be forev-
er trying to get them to eat their
peas and green beans!
Once you start giving them
100% fruit juice, give them no
more than 6 ounces a day.
Fruit juices have lots of extra
sugar and extra sugar means ex-


tra calories.
So if someone tells you that
you have a "cute chubby baby"
you may want to talk to your
healthcare provider to make
sure that you are not over feed-
,ing your baby.
Healthy babies can grow into
healthy adults.
Remember to wash your
hands, be healthy and be happy!.

mation Officer and Planning Con-

ecomonic development coun-
cil, brought up the concept of
an inland port, or distribution
center, which could be built in
Hendry County where the bulk of
United States Sugar Corporation
jobs may be lost. He added that
there is a large work pool in this
area and other businesses must
be brought in as well, because"
of today's challenging economic
downturn.
"It is not the answer to all our
needs," Mr. Zimmerly said of the
inland port.
Carol Wehle, SFWMD execu-
tive director, reported that water
management representatives


were in New York talking to lend-
ers about the purchase of the
sugar company. She mentioned
that even though these are excit-
ing opportunities for restoration
of the flow way and the revival
of the Everglades, it is also a se-
rious financial time. Ms. Wehle
explained that about 5 million
people expect* service from SF-
WMD and costs are increasing.
However, the district truly wants
to purchase acreage from the Ev-
erglades Agriculture Area
Carol Wehle added that resi-
dents from Clewiston, Hendry
County, have been working in the
area for a long time and are dedi-
cated to their community. She
also commented that the C-43
reservoir project is waiting to
take off and create much needed
jobs. The project is intended to


benefit the Caloosahatchee River
Basin and Lake Okeechobee, but
money is needed from the federal
stimulus package. With some
help from Congress the project
can move forward.
Other representatives from SF-
WMD made it known that water
management wants to acquire
180,000 acres of land, and does
not plan to purchase the infra-
stiucture of the sugar company
such as the mill and processing
plant. The district recognized
the importance of agriculture in
south Florida.
State Senator Dave Aronberg
was unable to take the boat tour,
but he stopped at the dock in
LaBelle and briefly spoke to the
group about their important task.

enabled him to date girls in La-
Belle and in Tampa at the same
time.
Mr. Stewart recalled how he
played a small part in an endur-
ance flight test, in which an air-
craft stayed in the air as long as
possible. That was in 1949 at
Opalocka. He was a member of
the ground crew that rode in a
jeep during the flight, and he wit-
nessed how the aircraft was fu-
- eled while-it was in mid-air. Glenn
rode shotgun in the front passen-
ger seat, and looked for trouble
while a man stood in the back
of the jeep which sped down the
runway. The airplane flew low
enough whereby the man hand-
ed a gas container to the co-pilot,
who leaned out of the back of the
plane and grabbed it. No kidding.
This act was repeated many times
during the test.


There were not many instru-
ments on the panel in those days,
and if he wanted to talk to some-
one at an airport, Glenn could not
radio to them. He would have to
land and call them on a telephone
first. Once, when he flew from
Miami to LaBelle, he passed over
the roof of a house that his Grand-
pa Berry Stewart was working on.
He flew low enough for Grandpa
to hear him.
"I throttled the engine back,
flipped down the window and
hollered, 'I'm gonna land on 29,
come and pick me up,'" he re-
called. .
He explained that the new
S.R. 29 was empty of traffic many
times, and after he landed on it
he could tie the aircraft to a fence
just like it was a horse.
In 1957, he had a risky job
ferrying planes and delivering
them to South American coun-
tries when there were no aviation
maps available; but the risky part
involved unpredictable politi-


cal dictators who may decide to
shoot at Glenn's' plane before it
could land.
In the 1960's, Glenn Stewart
was fortunate enough to pilot
small planes for Florida Gover-
nors Ferris Bryant, Claud Kirk
and Ruben Askew. He hung up.
his wings in the 1970's and took
up farming; but on Feb. 15 he
went up again and flew with Mike
Swindle of Clewiston.
Mr. Swindle is a Clewiston
High School agriculture teacher,
a farmer and a pilot who owns a
Piper Cub airplane. Mike Swindle
and Glenn Stewart took off from
the Swindle farm near U.S. 27.
Mr. Stewart took the throttle for
a while and flew over the memo-
ries of Riddle Field and the farm
lands of his youth. It was a golden
flight for a pilot of 79.
Glenn Stewart is semi-retired
in LaBelle, which is not far from
Rainey Slough.

Let the lower lights be burning!


By Jackie Miller, Evangelist
First Christian Church
The song-writer was inspired to write
this gospel song by hearing the follow-
ing story told by Dwight L. Moody: On a
dark, stormy night, a boat, rocking and
plunging, neared the Cleveland harbor.
"Are you sure this is Cleveland?"
asked the captain, seeing only one light
from the lighthouse.
"Quite sure," replied the pilot.
"Where are the lower lights?"
"Gone out, sir."
"Can you make the harbor?"
"We must, or perish, sir!"
With a strong hand and a brave heart
the old pilot turned the wheel.
But alas, in the darkness he missed
the channel, and with a crash upon the
rocks the boat was shivered, and many
a life lost in the watery grave.
The Master will take care of the great
lighthouse, let us keep the lower lights
burning."
The song was published in 1871 in
"The Charm," written by Philip Bliss.


Jesus said, "Ye are the light of the
world ... and it giveth light unto all ... let
you light so shine" (See Matthew 5:14-
16).
The world often does not see the evi-
dence of God.
Nor do they read the Bible. They do
not go to church either -- so if there will
ever be a gospel influence on them it
will come from those who are Chris-
tians.
Your Christian example is so impor-
tant to the lost as well as to other Chris-
tians.
We are the lower lights that save oth-
ers from loss.
James 5:10 says, "Take, my breth-
ren, the prophets, who have spoken in
the name of the Lord, for an example of
suffering affliction and of patience.
We can hear lessons on patience and
faithfulness but an example is so much
more helpful.
When the message is lived we learn
best.
We are challenged to be faithful to


the Lord when we see how Isaiah, Jer-
emiah and Amos suffered.
The faithfulness of Daniel inspires
us.
To see how the Lord repeatedly
blessed Daniel for his good choices en-
courages us to do the same.
Gideon was a great leader who led a
great victory.
His personal dedication inspired the
others.
Just before the great victory over the
Midianites, he instructed the small 300
man army what to do and then said,
"Do as I do" (Judges 7:17).
1 How challenging are the leaders
who set the pace and bear their part of
the load.
Gideon visually showed the right life
style.
When Israel was discouraged and
most were ready to quit, Jonathan
shone as an example of courage.
With only the armor bearer at his
side he challenged the entire Philistine.
army. "


What a light in a dark time.
Others following his example
stepped up and a great victory was won
(I Sam. 14).
On the way to Rome, Paul's ship was
caught in a terrible storm which lasted
for days.
The outlook was dark.
Hope was gone.
But Paul received encouraging words
from the Lord.
He passed this on to the others say-
ing, "be of good cheer: for I believe God
that it shall be even as it was told me."
We need to be a lower light when
others are discouraged.
They will be shipwrecked without
hope of the gospel.
There are so many who need words
of comfort. Pass them on.


The wonderful thing about Tiggers


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
There is within each of us a desire
to explain complex truths in a simple
way.
That's why adults like the three min-
ute children's message just as much or
more than the kids!
That's why I want to share with you
my fascination with Tigger (tee eye-
double gee errr).
As the Tigger Song on Youtube goes,
"The wonderful thing, about Tiggers is
Tiggers are wonderful things. Their tops
are made out of rubber.
"Their bottoms are made out of
springs. They're bouncy, trouncy, floun-
cy, pouncy -- Fun, fun, fun, fun, FUN!"
When Tigger first comes to the 100-
acre wood, he shows up in the middle of
the night at Winnie the Pooh's house.
Pooh asks him to be quiet and sleep
and in the morning he could have a
bowl of honey.
Tigger said, "That's what tigers like
best!"
But in the morning, when Tigger
tastes the honey, it turns out that tigers
don't like honey after all.
So Pooh walks and Tigger bounces


to Piglet's house to munch on some
of Piglet's favorite food haycorns
(acorns).
But when he tastes a haycorn, he
finds out that tigers don't like hay-
corns.
So Pooh and Piglet walk, and Tigger
bounces, on down to Eeyore's place to
sample some of Eeyore's favorite food
- thistles.
It comes as no surprise that we soon
discover that tigers don't like thistles
either..
Right away, we learn that although
Tigger may not be the sharpest tack
in the box, he is always happy, always
positive, always confident.
He might be hungry, but that doesn't
keep him from bouncing.
Tigger is the personification of "look-
ing on the bright side."
A tigger makes the most of each and
every moment and in doing so fills his
world with joy.
Tigger bounces in joy, although his
bouncing annoys the always practical
and reasonable Rabbit, who thinks it's
impractical and unreasonable to be
bouncing and so filled with joy all of the
time.


Once, when Rabbit was particularly
perturbed with Tigger and his bouncing,
he hatched a plan to change Tigger by
taking Tigger deep into the woods and
waiting for him to bounce out ahead of
the other animals as he always did, and
then to run home, leaving Tigger lost
and alone in the woods overnight.
"Mark my words," says Rabbit, "he'll
be a different Tigger altogether."
"Why," said Pooh. "Because he'll
be a humble Tigger. Because he'll be a
Sad Tigger, a Melancholy Tigger, a Small
and Sorry Tigger..."
"I should hate him to go on being
Sad," said Piglet.
"Tiggers never go on being Sad," ex-
plained Rabbit.
"They get over it with Astonishing
Rapidity. I asked Owl and that's what he
said, they always get over it with Aston-
ishing Rapidity."
No life is without sadness.
No life is without troubles and trials.
But Tigger, it seems, and tigger-like
people, find a way to get over these
things with "Astonishing Rapidity."
Give thanks to God!
For God makes it possible for each
and everyone of us to be joyful.


We find in the Psalms, "God has
turned my mourning into dancing; God
has taken off my sackcloth and clothed
me with joy."
God makes it possible for each and
everyone of us to bounce like Tigger.
Even Rabbit eventually comes to ap-
preciate Tigger's bounciness.
Tigger brings something special to
the hundred acre wood. Tigger brings
joy.
We need more Tiggers in the world.
We need more joy in the world.
We need more bouncing.
Life is bigger and better when it is
lived joyfully.
Let us ask God for joy and let us con-
centrate on the blessings and the good
things of life.
Let us not be anxious about the bad,
but give it to God.
Joy will make us better.
God will make it possible.


Words? Acts? Which tells the truth?


The Bible as a Sudoku
puzzle, or as an
affirmation of God?

By The Reverend Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
Saint Martin's Church, Clewiston
When I worked with people having
addiction problems, friends and family
would tell me "But he said....!" and find
out what was said didn't always match
what happened.
They learned quickly not to look at
words but at what was going on.
One of my professors wrote a book
called "Doing the Truth" and main-.
tained that it's not our words but our
actions that tell who we really are, and
what we really stand for and believe.
The New Testament accounts of the
last days of the Lord on earth has one of
those involved in Jesus' execution (Pon-
tius Pilate) asking "What is truth?"
The answer is not always in the
words, but more reliably found in ac-
tions.
When it tomes to the nature of God
and our relationship with Him, people


will wonder "What can we believe?"
There are many conflicting interpre-
tations and understandings about "the
Word of God' and what it all means.
I know of people that regard find-
ing "the truth" as treating the Bible
like some sort of giant Sudoku puzzle,
stringing Bible verses together with the
right verses in the right order and saying
"There! I've solved it!"
Looking at people and their actions
as well as their words gives the best pic-
ture. .
Sometimes a clear picture is in what
is not said, too, letting the deed speak
volumes and really telling the truth.
A recent lesson used one Sunday
morning was about the healing of a
leper (Mark 1: 40-45).
A leper approaches the Lord and
says "If you choose, you can make me
clean" The Lord responds "I do choose,
Be made clean" and the man was
healed. t
Then the man is told to perform the
customary ritual offering and "See that
you say nothing to anyone."
The man instead tells everyone; so
many people that Jesus could no longer
go into town openly and stayed in the


country.
People came to Him anyway.
Evidently, he was "mobbed" be-
cause of the indiscretions of the cured
leper; and wanted not to have it turn
out this way, with "people coming from
every quarter (v.45)."
The man did what he was told not
to do.
Ordinarily, that would have been a
no-no, or a reason for getting angry, or
telling the man "See what you did.Now
I can't even go into town!" or maybe
"Nowyou've done it! You're going to get
sick again. That will serve you right!"
Of course, none of these things hap-
pens.
It is in the deed, the act of kindness,
of healing, of love, that the true nature
of the Lord is revealed.
Words are only incidental to the act.
The man goes on his way,.healed,
and we hear nothing else about him;
not even if he is thankful or not.
The deed tells the story; it stands by
itself as a witness of the true nature of
the Lord's character and what He feels
about us..
There is another account of ten lep-
ers who are cleansed (Luke 17:11ff) and


only one returns to give thanks.
Again, no lecture on "Where's your
manners" to the nine, or nothing about.
them; they are left to enjoy the benefits
and blessings of their contact with the
Lord and then go on their way.
The one who gives thanks is also
told to go on his way, his faith has made
him whole.
All benefit from an act of outpour-
ing love that speaks volumes about the
nature of God's love for His creatures,
better than the stringing of Bible verses
together or trying to find out what "The
Lord said..." of quoting "That's what the
good book says.'"
Therein is the heart of knowing an-
other, of knowing the truth of a person,
of knowing about the Lord as well, and
a firm answer about "What is truth!"
