Garden Club makes lasting impacts


Anyway you look at it, the
Glades County Garden Club, is
exceptional, not because it's the
only one in the entire county, but
rather because of its longevity
and accomplishments.
It was in 1976 that the organi-
zation was founded by Mrs. Tina
Elliot and it's been growing ever
since.
Mrs. Elliot spoke briefly at the
March meeting elaborating on
the club's beginning with high
praise for the loyalty of the mem-
bers and their accomplishments
for nearly a quarter century.
Naturally the group has gone


through some difficult times but
the backbone of the club has re-
mained strong and steadfast in
its mission as is demonstrated
by many projects in various loca-
tions in and near Moore Haven.
Some of these include plant-
ing memorial trees throughout
the county, planting around the
Moore Haven welcome sign,
and the yearly project of giving
all fifth graders in West Glades
and Moore Haven Elementary
schools individual plants for
them to nurture over a period of
time.
At a later date club members


judge the care and growth of the
plants making appropriate rec-
ognition for those with the "big-
gest and best."
Also, the students keep their
plants and each one receives a
certificate of participation.
On March 11 perhaps the
most outstanding annual meet-
ing took place at the home of
Larry and Neva Luckey on Mar-
shall Field Road at which time
new officers and committee
chairmen were announced.
A brief swearing in ceremony
took place with the honorable
Judge Kirby Sullivan officiating.


The meeting was far more
than a "finger food and tea"
event.
It was typically a true Glades
County Barbecue with all the
trimmings in the Luckey's patio
garden under towering oaks.
After serving as the club's
president for four terms which
is eight years, Diana Winiecke
turned the gavel over to the new
president Harry Raboldt.
Other officers include Richard
Thatcher, Treasurer, Dot Barry,
Secretary, Diana Winiecki, Cor-
responding Secretary, Jean Ata-
kian Recording Secretary.


Members at large are Larry
Luckey and Ester Kackley.
This is one of the few garden
clubs of its kind that promotes
the membership of both women
and men.
The club also takes regular
field trips and a monthly news-
letter keeps members up to date
on the organization's activities.
Meetings are held the first
Tuesday of each month from
October through May, and, as of
this year, two summer meetings
will be held in July and Sept.


FWC arrests



3 in alligator



poaching case


Officers with the Florida
Fish and Wildlife Conservation
Commission (FWC) arrested
three people in an alligator
poaching case last week in
Glades County.
While on routine patrol,
Officer Scott Van Buren and
Lt. Pam Steelman observed a
pickup truck pulled halfway
off County Road 731, which is
south of Rainey Slough.
There, they observed a man
in a canal along the road; he
was retrieving an alligator.
A woman was in the bed
of the truck, and a 17-year-old
male stood next to the truck.
Upon inspecting the truck,
officers found three loaded
rifles, four pieces of fresh alliga


tor meat and two live hatchling
alligators.
The officers found three
butchered alligator carcasses
near the canal.
Three people Joshua J.
Todd, DOB 10/12/90, of Alva;
Natalee M. Grant, DOB 1/13/91,
of Lehigh Acres; and a juvenile
- were charged with seven mis-
demeanor counts of taking and
possessing American alligators.
All three were booked into
the Glades County jail.
"We hope this case sends
a strong message to would-be
wildlife poachers," Steelman
said.
"We will find you and hold
you accountable for criminal
acts."


The historic
structure helps
women in crisis

by Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- The his-
toric building at the corner of
Avenue J and Riverside Drive
has seen many families and
businesses come and go since
it was built about 1918.
Shorty after Moore Haven
was founded, a real estate and
construction businessman
named Frederick V Gram built
it and other structures in the
city; including the first high-
way bridge across the Caloosa-
hatchee River.


Originally, the Gram struc-
ture had a residence on the sec-
ond story and a post office and
drug store on the first floor.
Somehow the home was
blessed and it escaped the
huge fire of 1921 that wiped out
many stores in the downtown
neighborhood.
Then in 1926 it was one of
the few structures that survived
the hurricane and resulting
flood that ended so many lives.
In 1997 the Agape Home
was founded by Fred and Deb-
bie Tuel as a home for women.
The structure was donated
as a facility for women in need
of spiritual, emotional, and
physical help or shelter by the
Gram Estate.
The program is evangelical,
non-denominational and relies


on Christian belief.
The board of directors, advi-
sory board and local staff offer
a 12 month regenerative pro-
gram for women in crisis.
Women of troubled back-
grounds learn new lifestyles
of healthy food preparation,
personal care, and domestic
chores.
They also learn to manage
and maintain a thrift store lo-
cated on the first floor of Agape
Home.
After they fulfill their pro-
gram goals they are assisted
with finding jobs and housing.
Candice Mishkin, adminis-
trative assistant, recalled how
the historic structure was in
need of a new roof.

West Palm Beach, Fla. In
an ongoing effort to improve
Everglades water quality, the
South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD) is reno-


vating Stormwater Treatment
Area 5 (STA-5) in Hendry Coun-
ty to enhance its water-cleans-
ing capabilities. The renovation
will smooth contours on the
wetland bottom, reducing ar-
eas where water depths have
prevented wetland plants vi-

growing in abundance.

District birding
tours take flight
West Palm Beach, Fla. -
Everglades restoration lands
are public lands, and the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) has increasingly
opened these properties for
public recreation when com-
patible with their restoration
purpose.
Bird-watching is a prime


example of low-impact public
use, and thanks to Margaret
England of LaBelle, few loca-
tions are more popular for
bird-watching activities than
Stormwater Treatment Area 5
(STA-5), a water-cleansing wet-
land in eastern Hendry County.
Since 2005, the LaBelle resi-
dent has shared her avian ex-
pertise as a volunteer birding
tour leader at STA-5, showcas-
ing wildlife and recreation ac-
cess to lands managed by the
District for Everglades restora-
tion.
On Thursday,
the SFWMD Gov-
erning Board rec- See
See Vo


ognized England's
dedicated commu-
nity service with the
District's first Ambas-
sador Award.
"Margaret Eng-
land's willingness
to share her passion
and knowledge of
birds has enhanced
public understanding
of Everglades wildlife,
which is vital to suc-
cessful conservation
efforts," said SFWMD

Ivan Santiago Sr.
BELLE GLADE Ivan Santiago Sr.,
a faithful and loving husband, father,
grandfather and friend, passed on to
be with the Lord above on Friday,
Feb.27,2009.
Through the many years of his


hard work, his compassion for oth-
ers and genuine heart of gold, he
will never be forgotten. Although his
bigger than life presence will be
greatly missed we will always re-
member who he truly was.
Ivan was a man who loved and
cared about everyone. He always
had a smile on his face and was al-
ways ready to lend a helping hand.
He was the proud business owner
of Santiago Trucking for 27 years.
He enjoyed fishing, barbecuing
and working in his yard, doing his
best to make it look beautiful. He
loved music, dancing, and most of
all sharing time with his family, that
he loved more than life itself.
Those who are blessed to have
known him will remember him as a
strong, courageous, determined and
serving man.
He is survived by his loving wife of
30 years, Linda Santiago; his beloved
sons, Ivan Emilio and Eric Mitchell

Thank You!

We, Orie and Hazel Kellogg and family would like
to thank all of our friends and family for there help
when we lost our home to a fire. A special thanks
to Debbie McDuffie and the American Red Cross,
the Clewiston Vol. Fire Dept. for a very outstand-
ing effort to save our home and to Dwight and
Jeanette Hatfield. Also to the Clewiston High
School ninth grade class that raised donations.

A lot of people would say that Clewiston is called
"America's Sweetest Town" because of the sugar
cane. We believe Clewiston is called
'America's Sweetest Town" because of the people.

Once Again Thank You,
Orie and Hazel Kellogg

On December 16, 2008, following extensive due diligence and public deliberation, the South Florida
Water Management District (SFWMD) Governing Board accepted a proposal to acquire close to
180,000 acres of land for Everglades restoration from the United States Sugar Corporation.

The SFWMD is now moving forward with the first phase of planning toward a River of Grass
restoration project through a series of public workshops. As plans for the U.S. Sugar land are
determined, the SFWMD is encouraging landowners and communities to participate in the
workshops to ensure broad public involvement in the planning process and the successful
development of restoration project configurations.

Whoever said Emily Post is
the final authority when it comes
to entertaining? Glades County
Woman's Club strayed from their
traditional annual afternoon Mem-
bership Tea when Kacie Swaford
hosted a "Morning Tea/Brunch"
at her home in Lakeport.
Kacie outdid herself as thir-
teen members and three guests
enjoyed her culinary expertise in-
cluding breakfast casseroles, fruit,
bagels and donuts in addition to
tea and other beverages.
A lovely door prize of a basket
full of all sorts of toiletries was
won by Sandra Bentley.
At the March meeting, officers
were elected for the 2009-2010
year. The new officers will be:


President Anne Coffey, Vice Presi-
dent Patt Mason, Secretary Geri
Burleson, Treasurer-Megan Shep-
herd, and will be installed at the
April meeting. Also, at the April
meeting prospective new mem-
bers will be initiated. This will be

at 6:30 p.m.
All membership applications
need to be turned in to any of the
present officers: Barbara Brown,
Geri Burleson, Megan Shepherd
or Kacie Snow by the end of

Local residents quilt from the heart


By Brenda Barnes
Glades County Quilting from
the heart. That's what Phyllis Ash-
er and Jean Brew do every day in
Glades County. Phyllis and Jean
hand sew small quilts and do-
nate them to the Glades County
Health Department for the new
or expecting moms and their
soon to be bundles of joy. Phyllis
and Jean have been sewing for
most of their lives and when they
were asked "why they do it," they
humbly replied, "because we
love to sew and we know there
are families in Glades County that
could use the quilts." They never
requested nor expected any kind
of reward or recognition for their
donated time, talents and efforts,
they just "quilt from the heart".
But Pat Dobbins, Administrator
for the Glades and Hendry Coun-
ty Health Departments and Greta
Gallo, the Glades County Health
Department Healthy Start Fam-
ily Support Worker decided that
these ladies needed to know how
much they are appreciated. Ms.
Gallo helps to distribute the do-
nated quilts through the Glades
County Healthy Start Program.
Ms. Dobbins personally thanked
Phyllis and Jean by presenting
them with a certificate of appre-
ciation that stated "Together We
Care". Ms. Dobbins stated "It's
ladies like Phyllis and Jean that
make me proud to work with the
caring communities of Glades


County."
Phyllis Asher and her husband
have lived in Glades County for
over 11 years. They have been
married for 55 years and they are
members of the Baptist Church
in Lakeport. They are originally
from Indiana and when Phyllis
was asked how she chose Glades
County for her home, she stated "I
suppose that's where God want-
ed me". Phyllis has been an active
volunteer for most of her life. In
Indiana, she serviced the schools
as a "Gray Lady," which provided
first aid to school children. She
was a Girl Scout Leader for over
15 years and most recently has
volunteered for Hope Hospice
and nursing homes in the sur-
rounding areas, not to mention
the lovely quilts that she sews


and donates! Phyllis says that she
loves to sew and probably sews
from 8 to 10 hours per day!
Jean Brew and her husband
have been coming to Glades Coun-
ty to live for the winter months for
over 5 years. They have been mar-
ried for 43 years and are members
of the Methodist Church. They are
from Wisconsin, but love coming
to Glades County every year from
January to March. Jean has also
been an active volunteer. She vol-
unteers at the Elementary School
in Moore Haven helping children
from kindergarten through sec-
ond grade with their reading.
Back in Wisconsin, Jean was a
Home Economics teacher and is
a member of the Kiwanis's Club.
Jean says that she also loves to
sew and she loves trying out new


quilt patterns. Phyllis and Jean
wanted to make sure that some
other folks were recognized as
well. They wanted to thank the
following people for their help
with the quilting project: Sharon,
Betty, Elaine, Janis, Becky, Irene,
Jill, Phyllis, Bea and Alana.
The Glades County Health De-
partment and the Communities
of Glades County sure appreciate
these ladies and that they "quilt
from the heart!"

Community March Against Gang Violence


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Many of us come to church ex-
pecting to have what we already
know and believe confirmed and
validated. We like talking with
people we've known for a hun-
dred years. We enjoy the familiar-
ity of this sanctuary that holds so
many memories for us. We love
to sing those hymns and songs
we've been singing since child-
hood, and we wish the preacher
wouldn't constantly try to make
us sing new stuff.
There is so much that threat-
ens us in our weekday existence.
The world is changing so fast we
can't possibly keep up with it. On
Sunday morning, in the church,


we want to encounter a solid rock
to hold on to. And there are times
when God meets our need to be
comforted and strengthened. But
there are also times when God
knows that our greater need is
to have our thinking challenged,
our faith examined, our lifestyle
called into question. A time when
we are called to leave our com-
fort zone, a time when we are
called to stand in the gap. (Ezekiel
22:30)
If we're honest about it, we
have to admit that just about the
only place where we feel com-
fortable making bold statements
about our religion and our alle-
giance to God is in our church. In
our hymns we sing, "All to Jesus I
surrender All to Him I freely give."


In our confession of faith, we say,
"I believe that Jesus is the Christ,
the Son of the Living God, and I
accept him as Lord of my life."
And when we pray the Lord's
Prayer, we pray, "Thy kingdom
come, Thy will be done, on earth
as it is in heaven."
We say all of these things, and
that's wonderful. But what do
with we do with them when we
leave the security of our places of
worship?
There are some things in life
that are best experienced first
hand. We can't really learn how
to do a particular dance just by
hearing a lecture on modern
dance. We've got to get on the
dance floor and feel the beat of
the music. If I say, "It looked like


the runner was going to be out at
the plate, but he used a hook slide
and slid around the tag," and you
don't know anything about base-
ball, what do my words mean?
The Christian faith is sort of
like that. We can talk about it, but
unless we really put it into prac-
tice, what we have is lacking. Un-
less people actually experience
our faith in action, what do our
words mean?
As a preacher, my task is not
just to be interesting or informa-
tive or amusing or entertaining.
I hope that my sermons are all
these things, but I'm realistic
enough and aware of my own
limitations enough to know that's
not going to happen all the time.
But none of these things, as desir-


able as they may be, amount to
anything unless I can somehow
convince people of the need to
ACT, to allow the Spirit of God to
transform them. Hearers must at
last become doers. The faith we
proclaim with our Sunday morn-
ing affirmations has to be evident
in our Monday morning lives.
On Saturday, March 21, we
have one such opportunity to do
this. I invite you to join me and
others in a Unity March Against
Violence. We will gather at 10
a.m. across from the old sub
station at the corner of El Paso
and Francisco in Clewiston. The
plans are to march through sev
eral troubled neighborhoods and
conclude with a rally at the Elk's
park on Francisco. Those who


can't march are invited to come
to the Elks park as a show of sup-
port. We love our community and
want to let certain elements know
that we are not going to just sit by
and let them corrupt our youth.
Join us!
Some of you, like me, might
find that a unity march might not
be in your comfort zone. I have re-
alized that sometimes I am called
to go outside of my comfort zone
for the sake of Kingdom work. As
for me and my household, we will
do what we can do to stand up
to this violence epidemic. Even if
that involves marching through a
troubled neighborhood.


What has been will be; what has been done will be done again


By Jackie Miller,
Evangelist
First Christian Church
In Ecclesiastes 1:9 NIV it says
"What has been will be again,
what has been done will be done
again; there is nothing new under
the sun."
In a recent article I read, it
stated that modern-day liberals
- or "progressives", labor under
an awkward misconception;
namely, that there is anything
remotely "progressive" about
the fundamental canons of their
blind, secular-humanist faith. In
fact, today's liberalism is largely a
sanitized retread of an antiquated
mythology one that significantly

predates the only true progressive
movement: Biblical Christianity.
Baal worship taught child sac-
rifice, sexual immorality (both
heterosexual and homosexual)
and pantheism (reverence of cre-
ation over the Creator). Ritualistic
Baal worship, in sum, looked a
little like this: Adults would gather
around the altar of Baal. Infants
would then be burned alive as
a sacrificial offering to the diety.
Amid horrific screams and the
stench of charred human flesh,
congregants men and women
alike, would engage in bisexual
orgies. The ritual of CONVE-
NIENCE was intended to produce
economic prosperity by prompt-
ing Baal to bring rain for the fertil-


bent at 561-308-7654.

ity of "mother earth." The natural
consequences of such behavior
- pregnancy and childbirth and
the associated financial burdens
of "unplanned parenthood" were
easily offset. One could either
choose to engage in homosexual
conduct or with child sacrifice
on demand could take part in
another fertility ceremony to ter-
minate the unwanted child.
Modern liberalist deviates
little from its ancient predessor!
While its macabre rituals have
been sanitized by flowery and
euphemistic terms of art, its core
tenets and practices remain eerily
similar. The worship of "fertility"
has been replaced with worship
of "reproductive freedom" and


"choice." Child sacrifice via burnt
offering has been updated, even
so slightly, to become child sac-
rifice by way of abortion. The
ritualistic promotion, practice and
celebration of both heterosexual
and homosexual immorality and
promiscuity have been carefully
whitewashed, yet wholeheartedly
embraced by the cults of radical
feminism, militant "gay rights"

and "comprehensive sex educa-

ship of "mother earth" has been
substituted in name only, for
radical environmentalism.
In the White House today and
in the lllth Congress we have
those who are rife with unfettered
pro-abortion, freedom-chilling,
pro-homosexual and power-grab-
bing environmentalist objectives.


The same kind of "hope, action
and change," I suppose, that was
swallowed by the Baalist Canaan-
ites of old. So today's liberalism is
really just a very old book with a
shinny new cover. A philosophy
rooted in ancient pagan tradi-
tions of which there is naught to
be proud. There's "nothing new
under the sun," indeed!

Hendry Regional hosts lunch and learn


By Glenda Wilson
March is National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month and
Hendry Regional Medical Center
is educating the community about
colorectal cancer through free
'lunch and learn' seminars. Dr.
Leonard Carroll and Dr. Darayes
Mobed, both general surgeons at
Hendry Regional, will be hosting
these lunch and learn sessions
and discussing ways to prevent,
diagnose, and treat colorectal
cancer.
Dr. Carroll will speak during
lunch at the hospital conference
room in Clewiston on Wednes-
day, March 25 from 12:15 p.m.
to 1:15 p.m. (a light lunch will be
provided).
Dr. Darayes Mobed will speak
during lunch at the Convenient
Care Center conference room in
LaBelle on Thursday, March 26
from 12:15 p.m. to 1:15 p.m. (a
light lunch will be provided).
It takes guts to face the facts
about colorectal cancer and do
something about it. Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center wants you
to know the facts:
*Colorectal cancer is the


second leading cause of cancer
deaths in the United States only
lung cancer is more deadly, affect-
ing about 174,000 people each
year and taking 160,000 lives. This
year alone, about 149,000 Ameri-
cans will be diagnosed with col-
orectal cancer, and about 55,000
will die from it. By comparison,
breast cancer will affect 213,000
women this year and claim about
41,000 lives. During that same
time, roughly 234,000 men will be
diagnosed with prostate cancer,
and 27,000 will die from it.
*Even though colon cancer
and rectal cancer are often re-
ferred to together (as colorectal
cancer), they describe cancers of
two different areas. Rectal cancer
occurs when a tumor grows in
the bottom 6 inches of the bowel.
If a tumor grows in any area of the
bowel that's above the rectum, it
is called colon cancer.
Colorectal cancer affects men
and women in equal numbers. It
is not a "man's disease" -which
is how some people think.
*Colorectal cancer doesn't
discriminate a person of any
race can get this disease. How-


ever, African-American men and
women are more likely to de-
velop colorectal cancer than any
other racial group, and they are
also more likely to die from it.
*Although it is true that nine
out of ten cases of colorectal can-
cer are diagnosed in people older
than 50, the average age for diag-
nosis is only 62. This is why doc-
tors recommend that everyone
older than 50 should have routine
screening exams for colorectal
cancer.
*Genes can play a part in
who develops colorectal cancer.
As with many other diseases,
your risk goes up if a close fam-
ily member has had it. However,
the majority of people who get
colorectal cancer have no family
history at all.
*The majority of people who
develop colorectal cancer have
no history of inflammatory bowel
disease or other bowel condi-
tions. Even if a person has never
had digestive problems of any
kind, he or she is still at risk for
colorectal cancer. However, a
change of bowel habits may be
an early symptom.


*Colorectal cancer can grow
for a long time without causing
any symptoms or in some
cases, it may cause vague or low-
level symptoms that a person
might ignore. Often, by the time it
causes noticeable symptoms, the
cancer has become much harder
to treat.
*Colorectal cancer is actu-
ally one of the most preventable
cancers. Tumors in the colon or
rectum begin as polyps (benign
growths), and it is possible to de-
tect and remove them before they
become cancerous. This is done
with a colonoscopy, a test that
uses a scope to examine the en-
tire colon and rectum. If the doc-
tor finds any polyps, he or she can
remove them during the exam.
When colorectal cancer is
found early meaning that the
cancer is confined to one location
within the colon or rectum it is
very treatable and the vast major-
ity of people survive. It becomes
much more difficult to treat when
it's discovered later and after the
cancer has spread to other parts
of the body.

The Ambassador Award was
created to honor those who fos-
ter the public missions of the SF-
WMD, such as Everglades's resto-
ration. England, a library media
specialist at LaBelle Elementary
School and secretary of the Hen-
dry Glades Audubon, was chosen
as the inaugural award recipient
from among a number of worthy
candidates.
The award was presented in
Clewiston at the March Governing
Board meeting, as part of the Dis-
trict's celebration of its 60th year
managing and protecting water
resources of the region.
While England fittingly per-
sonifies the title of "ambassador"
in the partnership between the
SFWMD and the Hendry-Glades
Audubon, she is also a contribu-
tor to the science of environmen-
tal restoration.
England and 50 volunteers re-

- numbering more than 92,600
birds during the 109th national
Christmas Bird Count at STA-5.
Known as "citizen science,"
bird counts are vital to studies of
the long-term health and status of
bird populations.

watch" and is a certified Florida
Master Naturalist, which enhanc-

STA-5.
During the past 15 years,
Stormwater Treatment Areas have
proven to be the water-cleaning
workhorses of Everglades resto-
ration, utilizing plants to remove
phosphorus from water flowing
into the Everglades.
Since 1994, six STAs with
a combined area of more than
52,000 acres have retained
more than 1,000 metric tons of
total phosphorus that would
have otherwise entered the Ever-
glades.
At each Stormwater Treatment
Area, water levels are managed at
an optimal depth for water qual-
ity improvements, which also cre-
ates an attractive habitat for wad-
ing birds.
The District has taken steps to
ensure the public has access at
these sites for spectacular wildlife
viewing as well as duck hunting,
enhanced at STA-5 by construc-
tion of a waterfowl watching/
hunting platform for disabled vet-
erans and residents alike.

cational and recreational interest,

"Storm water Treatment Areas
have proven to be our best tool
for cleaning Everglades-bound
water, yet we continually find
ways to make them better," said
SFWMD Governing Board Chair
Eric Buermann.
"With renovations in STA-5,
we will learn even more about
optimizing treatment perfor-
mance, benefiting not only Amer-
ica's Everglades but all restoration
activities."
Storm water Treatment Areas
are designed so that water flows
slowly and uniformly through
wetlands abundant with phos-
phorus-hungry vegetation.
A closer look at field data col-
lected in STA-5, including detailed
contour maps of the wetland
bottom, revealed an area in the
northwest section that was much
deeper than the rest of the STA.
This phenomenon caused
some water to bypass the shal-
low, more heavily vegetated sec-
tions of the STA and therefore
receive less treatment.
The dry weather of early 2009
presented an opportunity to re-
fine the bottom contours by mov-
ing soil from nearby higher areas
to the deeper areas.
Filling these sections of STA-5
will allow more vegetation to take
root, enhancing the treatment
characteristics of the STA.
District crews are handling the
renovation at substantial cost sav-
ings compared to contracting the
work.
In 32 days, the crews moved

Birding, a national pastime, is
big business, with 48 million peo-
ple observing birds both around
the home and through vacation
travel.
A 2001 report by the U.S. Fish
and Wildlife Service concluded
that nationwide birding gener-
ated $32 billion in retail sales and
created 863,406 jobs.
A Florida-based study showed
that non-consumptive bird use
(i.e., non-hunting activities) sup-
ported more than 19,000 jobs in
Florida in 2006, and all wildlife
viewing activities generated more
than $3 billion statewide that year,
according to a state report.
Birding specifically generates
an estimated $477 million in retail
sales in Florida every year, second
in the nation only to California.

aged by the District, visit the SF

A new roof was ity for the program and for Moore


needed soon.
Things seemed grim
to Ms. Mishkin because
200 other prestigious in-
stitutions were lobbying
for funding.
Courthouses, fancy
hotels and famous sites
with a lot of clout were
in line for a grant.
While she was in Tal-
lahasse, she found that
only a handful would
get funding.
She waited after the
interview for word of
approval or not, and it
was a time to put their
hopes and beliefs to
work.
After waiting for a
submitted long time she heard the
e roof. good news.
Only six parties
received grants and
Agape Home was one
of them.
The new roof became a real-

nearly 170,000 cubic yards, or
8,500 truckloads, of soil in STA-5.
Since it began operation in
1999, the 8,000-acre STA-5 wet-
land has a multi-year record of
removing nearly 60 percent of in-
flowing total phosphorus.
The District team in charge of
improving Everglades water qual-
ity expects STA-5 can now achieve
closer to an 80-percent removal
rate, which is on par with other
STAs.
Storm water Treatment Areas
are the water-cleansing work-
horses of Everglades restoration,
utilizing plants to reduce phos-
phorus levels in water flowing
into the remnant Everglades.
Since 1994, six STAs with
a combined area of more than
52,000 acres have retained
more than 1,000 metric tons of
total phosphorus that would have
otherwise entered into the Ever-
glades.
Overall, Florida has invested
more than $1.8 billion to improve
water quality in the Everglades
and has made significant and
well-documented progress.
The District will continue col-
lecting data from STA-5 and other
treatment wetlands to advance
the science and utilize the lessons
learned to better restore and re-
vive the Everglades.

Some newspapers seem to take pleasure in the bad news. Not us.

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Let us know by mailing feedback@newszap.com or calling your editor.
