Jail renovation moves forward


Public safety update;
emergency burn ban
By Nena Bolan
Glades County. Democrat
GLADES COUNTY On Jan.
8 county commissioners met
and approved the renovation of
the old jail. At one time it was
designated to become astorage
building. According to officials,
its renovation as an extension of
the new county jail is a valid al-
ternative. The population in the
new facility continues to grow,


and having a separate dorm to
house female and juvenile in-
mates would be beneficial to
the corrections operation.
The estimated cost pf $1.1
million will come from the one
percent sales tax money. How-
ever, Glades Correctional Devel-
opment Corporation (GCDC)
will lease the revamped facil-
ity for approximately $500,000
a year which will allow the
county to recover the cost.
Commissioner Russell Echols
supervised the research on the
project. Tentative plans set im-


provements to begin in April
2008, with a possible comple-
tion date of December 2008.
"This is a good deal for the
county and the GCDC board,"
said Sheriff Stuart Whiddon.
Bob Jones, public safety
director, gave the county an
update on service and train-
ing. Whenever the Bee Branch
Bridge is under construction in
Muse it will be more difficult
to pYovide timely fire and EMS
service to the western part of
Glades County, according, to
Mr. Jones. Many of the first re-

Suspects

GLADES COUNTY It
looked like a scene straight out
of an action movie earlier this
week when at least six different
agencies followed the trail of
four suspects around the lake
who they believe were respon-
sible for a series of robberies.
Law enforcement agencies
from Glades County gave chase
to a stolen car just before noon
on Monday and followed the
fleeing vehicle into neighboring
Clewiston.
Three of four suspects have
been placed into custody, while
a third remains at-large.

several felony charges, 'includ-
ing carjacking, burglary and
fleeing, among other possible
charges. .
According to Sheriff Stu-
art Whiddon, with the Glades
County ,Sheriff's Office, the
suspects are being questioned
in connection with several rob-


beries that occurred just mo-
ments leading up to the chase.
Officials believe they now
have in custody an infamous
group of robbers who had ter-
rorized the area as of late. It just

and a detour would delay the
time of arrival. Therefore Mr.
Jones recommended provid-
ing full time coverage for first
responders for a 24-hour day
for 90 days at the Muse station
at an estimated cost of $45,000.
This situation would last until
the ,bridge is completed next
summer. The board approved
the plan.
The public safety director
also informed the board that
the state fire marshal will no
longer handle fire inspections.


Future inspections will be con-
ducted by Bill Ranson who has
recently attended fire inspec-
tion classes. John Biggs, para-
medic, will attend school in or-
der to become a State Certified
Fire'Fighter.
A request to adopt a burn
ban ordinance was approved
by the board. This is a general
ordinance and the only burn-
ings allowed are recreational
fires, barbeques and yard
waste consisting of vegetative
debris. The outdoor burning

at the Jan: 8 meeting which
will highlight the mutual eco-
nomic and cultural interests'
.of both Glades County and
the Seminole Tribe's Brighton

The board approved the

Mr. Beck and county manager,
Wendell Taylor, to research

olution will be introduced for

Gun range opens .


Site under
authorization
of sheriff's office
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Desig-
nated gun ranges are scarce.
It can be difficult to find an
appropriate place to learn gun
safety, site and test a firearm,
or target practice. The Glades
County Gun Range opened up
within th4 last year, and the
facility is authorized for use
by Sheriff Stuart Whiddon.
The range is located at the
old closed landfill on S.R. 78


north of the public safety de-
partment.
The first responsibil-
ity of gun ownership is be-
ing schooled in the safety
procedures for the operation,
maintenance and handling of
firearms. These gun handling
and. safety skills are taught to
adults and their children by
the Glades County Gun Club
members.
The chairman of the club
is GCSO Sergeant David Har-
din. He serves as the sheriff's
representative as well. John
Ottino, club secretary, can
furnish information to anyone
interested in a gun club ap-
plication packet, or dates for


INI/Nena Bolan.
The Glades County Gun Range is open to public membership, and regulated by Glades Coun-
ty Sheriff Stuart Whiddon. David Lee, right, arrives,during class registration. He is the club
treasurer and a law enforcement 6fficer for the Seminole Police Department.

Lake 0 pump stations get upgraded


$7 million will improve
water supply, flood
control in northwest
area of lake
WEST PALM BEACH -- The
Governing Board of the South
Florida Water Management Dis-
trict (SFWMD) today approved
two contracts totaling more than
$7 million for refurbishing and
upgrading four major pump sta-
tion's along the northwestern
border of Lake Okeechobee.
The projects will enhance
the operational readiness of the


pump stations known as S-127,
S-129, S-131 and S-133 ensuring
the integrity of the District's flood
control and water supply sys-
tems, particularly in Glades and
Okeechobee counties.
"As custodians of one of the
largest water management sys-
tems in the world, we have a re-
sponsibility to quickly adopt the
most current and environmentally
sound water management tech-
nologies," said Eric Buermann,
chairman of the SFWMD Govern-
ing Board. "Although they have
been impeccably maintained, all
four of these pump stations were
placed in service 40 years ago.


These upgrades will greatly mod-
ernize them and improve their
operational efficiency."
The four pump stations will be
reconditioned and their oil-lubed
pump bearings upgraded to envi-
ronmentally friendly, water-lubri-
cated bearings. Water-lubricating
systems needed for each of the
five pumps at each station also
will be installed. In addition, the
manual hoist at each pump sta-
tion will be replaced with a new
'electrically operated hoist -sys-
tem.
Under a $4,027,000 contract
with Interlaken, Inc., work at
pump stations S-129 and S-131


also will consist of repowering
the five pumps at each site by re-
placing diesel engine drivers with
electronically controlled diesel
engines and installing automated
control systems.
Under a $3,221,000 contract
with Douglas N. Higgins, Inc.,
work at pump stations S-127 and
S-133 also will include inspection
of gear reducers and shafts and
reinstallation with new seals and
gaskets, as well as the addition of
exhaust silencers on each diesel
engine's exhaust system.
Work under both contracts is
expected to be completed within
the next two years.

"We have a history of feud-
ing and fighting at the L-Cross,"
he said. "There's been a lot of
animosity over the years."
After a short recess, Judge
Lundy returned to the court-
room with his decision to grant
the restraining order and that
Howard Cook was not physical-
ly or mentally able to take care
of his wife. He also agreed with
Mark Pearce's statement about
his family's history.
"It's clear to me there's a lot
of animosity," said the judge.
"But, I do find his (Howard
Cook) testimony credible."
The family will be back in
court in a couple of weeks when .
they challenge a power of attor-
ney allegedly signed by Sylvia
Cook that gives Mark Pearce
the right to oversee her affairs.
Judge Lundy has recused him-
self and will not hear this case.
"I don't see how she could
have signed it," testified Howard
Cook. "Her mind is completely
gone."
He testified that Mark Pearce
went to an Okeechobee bank
armed with the power of at-
torney and withdrew $1,550.20
from the account of Howard
and Sylvia Cook. He also closed
the account, said Howard Cook.
Both of these actions were done
without his knowledge, Howard
Cook told the judge.
When Howard Cook then

Social Security check.
"He's still got it and hasn't
paid it back," Howard Cook told
the judge. *
Mark Pearce countered by
saying his great aunt gave him
power of attorney on at least
two occasions and that the
money in the account belonged
to his aunt.

chance of getting something in my tires not to mention what I get on
my shoes. I thought we'd have a state of the art transfer station one
that you'd back up to a wall about tailgate high and dump your trash
over that wall into a trailer waiting below. I'm from Kentucky and heck
folks it's been 12 years since I moved here and well that's what we did
up there. Goodness gracious I thought Kentucky was famous for be-
ing behind the times. Well,.I did before I moved to Glades Co. 10 years
ago. Alas, the wonderful new transfer station at the Glades Count
dump was far from that good ole one we had in Kentucky. Why heck
you just as well go back up the hill and roll in the trash on top there, at
least you have a breeze to take the smell away and there would be no
need to DOUBLE your fees because to get into the transfer station you
do drive up hill to unload your trash, into a big ole pile that you have
no choose be to stand in to unload your truck. Oh and the kicker is the
bucket loader comes in to pick up the trash (some wonderful groves
already showing in the new concrete by the way) and transfer it to a
waiting WTC trailer to make the trip to that trailer the loader has to
.GO DOWN into a pit like right behind the solid wall of the wonderful
transfer station... now if that wall were only tail gate high hmmm.

Cemetery walk explores local history


Historic Ortona Cemetery's
new Pavilion provided a wel-
come shelter on a chilly Saturday
morning for.50 participants who
gathered to hear presentations
and walk through the cemetery.
The walk was the kick-off event
for "Exploring the Environmen-
tal History of Florida," a six-part
reading/discussion program
at the Ortona Library, Jan. 9
through Feb. 13.
Glades County Property Ap-
praiser and local historian, Larry
Luckey, recounted the cemetery's
history and pointed out graves
that existed before the property
was officially designated a cem-
etery. Mr. Luckey recalled ex-
ploring the cemetery as a young
boy and seeing what were called
"pauper" graves. Over the years,
the indentations in the ground
covering these unmarked graves
have all but disappeared from
view.
Jeanette Peeples, whose
grandfather was a cemetery
founder, shared her memories of
the area and displayed original
photo's and the cemetery site
plans. During the walk, Ms. Pee-
ples drew the group's attention
to a family plot that contained
eight headstones, all dated 1928.
Almost the entire family lost their

Archeologist John Beriault de-
scribed the pre-Columbian land
area. During the walk he pointed
out existing original flora and
more recent types. He led the
group to the remains of an In-
dian mound on the eastern edge
of the cemetery. The mound
was disturbed in the Cemetery's
development. However, when
ancient skulls were discovered
in the earthworks, the digging
was halted. Now the 20 foot high
mound remains, hidden from


view by scrub. Beriault is the

tive for the Archaeological and
Historical Conservancy of Flor-
ida. The Conservancy's current
projects include the Okeechobee
Battlefield and the Ortona Canal,
which is part of the mound com-
plex in the adjacent Larry Luckey
Indian Mound Park.
Humanities scholar and pro-
fessional storyteller Carol Mahler
read related selections from Flor-
ida literature. Of special note was
a newspaper obituary of Billie
Bowlegs, read while the group


viewed his gravesite. Mahler is
leading the reading/discussion
program at the Ortona Commu-

Lady Tigers Soccer Senior Night: A night to remember


By Coach Keri Alford
Senior Night for the Clewiston
High School Lady Tigers Soccer
Team was filled with laughter,
cheers, and tears. There was a
,range of emotions to describe
the feelings behind the meaning
of what senior night really repre-
sents. Tuesday, Dec. 8, was the
six senior girls last home game,
last game playing as a'Clewiston
Tiger on their home field, and
the last chance to play in front of
their home crowd. With the sev-
enth season of the CHS girl's soc-
,cer program coming to an end,
,this was the first year the team
,graduated, 4 year, returning se-
,niors.
S Ivana Cruz, #7, has been an
.impacting factor in the offensive
'game, as a top scorer, and by
leading her team with assists this
season. Sonia Herrera, #12, has
persevered through, with endur-
ance and hard work, as an offen-
sive midfielder. Alma Vazquez,
.#14's, tremendous speed would
'always leave her teammates
,knowing that she had their back,
'as a defensive center midfielder.

scorer on the team for the, past that control's the defense and Jenny Mazariegos, #19, has infi-


nite endurance and could always
be expected to give nothing less
than her best.
Over the past 4 years that
these girls have been a part of this
team, the program has portrayed
a true "rags to riches" story.
Within the first three years of the
programs start, one goal and one
win brought on a feeling of great
accomplishment. The coaches
and players that have been apart
of the Lady Tigers since then
have done their best to continue
to build on to the past and future
success of the program, and they
have never looked back!
Their first season together,
along with the help of their other
teammates, the Lady Tigers won
5 games, and also won the first
round of their district playoffs
against Dunbar. Their second
season together they combined
a record with 6 wins and a tie
against, neighboring rivals, the
La Belle Cowgirls. As their junior
year approached, and the under-
classmen talent brought even
more to the table, they finished
their season with a record of 14-
7. Their senior year approached


quicker than anyone could have
expected. Coaches, parents, fans
and the team had high hopes
and expectations for the 07-08
season. The seniors, along with
their teammates, have finished
yet another successful regular
season schedule, with a record
of 13-5-3.
Although it is sad to see the
seniors go, they have left so
many great memories behind.
They have truly left their mark
on the Lady Tigers Soccer Pro-
gram. They have played a huge
role in helping the program get
to where it is now, and they have
forever challenged the success
of where it can go in the future.
Their shoes will be hard to fill, but
the foundation that they have left
behind in their teammates, the
support of the Clewiston com-
munity, and theitalented youth
that continues to fill the CHS JV
team and the AYSO girls teams
will, without a doubt, help in car-
rying out the legacy that they are
leaving behind.


Lady Tigers Soccer Clinic offered one-on-one attention

By Keri Alford
The Girls Varsity Soccer Team
put on their first ever soccer
clinic, open to the youth of Clew-
iston, on Dec. 5, 2007. With an
attendance of about 10 kids the
one on one attention the play-
ers received was priceless. Each
camper paired up with a Lady Ti-
ger Soccer player as the coaches,
Keri Alford and Holly Bach, lead
the warm-up, drills, and games.


Clewiston High school

The campers were taught a
traditional Brazilian warm-up
that they use to warm-up be-
fore games, along with a slid-
ing cat and mouse game. After
everyone was warmed up and
stretched out, they worked on
their touches with Ecuadorians.
This is a drill that works on per-
fecting your touches, starting
from your toes and working all
the way up to your head. They
played a few short sided games,
including hand ball, steal the ba-
con, and finishing up with World
Cup. These drills worked on sev-
eral things ranging from improv-

SFCC jazz series presents 'Groove for thought'


South Florida Community Col-
lege is launching another season
*of great jazz performances when
the 2008 SFCC Jazz Series presents
,Groove for Thought, Saturday,
'Jan. 26, 7:30 p.m., in the SFCC
,University Center Auditorium.
The Seattle-based six-man
group, plus piano, establishes a
*strong rapport with its audience
'from the opening number as


they apply their unique style of
interweaving thick and complex
harmonies around recognizable
melodies.
The result of their efforts is a
distinct group persona that are
reminiscent of hints of other
groups like The Hi-Lo's, the Car-
penters, Take Six, and Earth Wind
and Fire, as well as some jazz
licks from the Count Basie Band.


The group's vocalists have had
extensive training in vocal and in-
strumental music. They are adept
both as instrumentalists and vo-
calists; however, they all decided
to emphasize their vocal skills
professionally. Their performanc-
es include jazz, gospel, rhythm
and blues, and pop music.
The vocalists include Jeff Ho-
renstein, Peter Jones, Kelly Kunz,


Brennan Baglio, James Niles,
and Randy Taylor. They have gar-
nered several prestigious awards,
including the 2005 National Har-
mony Sweepstakes and the 2006
Contemporary Acappella Record-
ing award for Best Jazz Song.
They have one well-received CD
called, appropriately, Groove for
Thought. More information about
the group can be found at, www.


grooveforthought.com. ,
The 2008 Jazz Series is co-
sponsored by Sevigny and John-
son Eye Care, Media Sponsor
Highlands Today, and perfor-
mance sponsors Wendell and
Martha Williams.
Tickets for Groove for Thought
are $25 for section A and $21 for
section B, and may be purchased
online 24 hours a day, seven days


a week, at www.southflorida.edu
by clicking "Performing Arts."
Tickets may also be purchased
by calling the SFCC Box Office at
(863) 784-7178 or by visiting the
SFCC Box Office located at the
SFCC Auditorium, 600 West Col-
lege Drive, Highlands Campus,

Local man to go on


mission trip to Africa


By Pete Gawda
INI Florida
A local man will soon be tak-
ing the Gospel to the far side of
the world.
Jim Womble, Sunday school
director and deacon at Buckhead
Ridge Baptist Church is planning
for a mission trip to Africa later
this summer.
"I just want the opportunity to
tell people about Christ," he said.
While the details of the trips
are sketchy at this point, Mr.
Womble is very excited.
"I've always had it in.my heart
to do it," he said of going on any
type of mission trip, not neces-
sarily to Africa. "It's part of who
I am."
He will be part of a group of
10 or 12 people on the trip which
is sponsored by the First Baptist
Church of Woodstock, Georgia.
Mr. Womble was invited by his
brother who is a member of that
church. His brother has been on
several previous mission trips.
Mr. Womble's brother will be
confirming the dates of the 10
to 12 day trip later this month.
At this point, the country is un-
certain. It could be either, South
Africa, Zimbabwe, or Cameroon.
Since all of those countries were
under British control until fairly
recently, language should not be
a problem.
Mr. Womble said it breaks his
heart that the average life span of
people in the area where is go-
ing is 37 due to the prevalence of
AIDS. The mission group will be
guests of local pastors in Africa.
They will be encouraging local

pastors and helping them real-
ize they are not alone. The group
will be giving them new ideas on
teaching methods and delivering
Bibles and other literature
Since this is a volunteer trip,
the participants will have to pay
their own expenses. However,
Mr. Womble is confident the Lord
will provide. He said that right af-
ter he was invited on the trip, a
man gave him $1,000.
A Bluegrass concert featuring
local musicians was held to ben-
efit the mission trip on Saturday,
Jan. 12 at Buckhead Ridge Baptist
Church.

Moore Haven
Elementary School
Volunteer program
Every teacher wishes she or
he had more time to give to each
student to listen and respond,
to individualize instruction, and
to meet the unique needs of each
learner.
Volunteers can help make this
wish come true. They offer an ex-
tra pair of hands, eyes and ears.
Through an organized, structured
school volunteer program, school
volunteers can help give each
child more read-aloud time, extra
chances to respond, immediate
confirmation of correct answers,
and the caring that motivates a
child to learn and to succeed.
They also serve as bridges to
the community and supportive
spokespersons for the school's
programs.

One Like Christ?


By Jackie Miller,
minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
A Christian is supposed to be
"One Like Christ" or a follower
of Christ. What are the implica-
tions of being a true Christian?
Christ loved and prayed for His
enemies. Do you? He rejoiced
though He had nowhere to lay
Hishead. Doyou? Christrejoiced
though all forsook Him and
fled. Do you? He went among
the poor and lowly to lead them
to God. Do you? He denied
Himself comfort and ease that
others might find peace for their
troubled souls. Do you? When
Christ met a person or company
of persons, he talked to them of
eternal things. Do you? He that


said account must be given of
"every idle word that men shall
speak" never engaged in foolish
talking. Do you? Christ taught
that "men ought always to pray,
and not to faint" and He prayed
much and often. Do you? Christ
was so earnest in prayer for a
lost world that He prayed, "be-
ing in agony." Do you? Christ
was "brought as a lamb to the
slaughter", and He opened not
His mouth, but patiently en-
dured mocking and shame. Do
you? Christ was "separate from
sinners." Are you? Christ had
such love for those who cruci-
fied Him that He prayed, "Father
forgive them." Do you have such
love? "Now if any man have not
the Spirit of Christ, he is none of
His."

Salvation from sharks we never see


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
Twelve year old Aiden Medley
recently made headlines when he
caught a 9 ft., 551 lb. bull shark
on a New Year's fishing trip off of
the coast of West Palm Beach. He
said he was determined to catch
the shark because it kept eating
all of the fish he was trying to
catch. It was a day in the ocean
he will never forget.
Rob Howes also has a day
in the ocean he will never for-
get. Rob and some friends
were swimming at one of New
Zealand's beaches with some
friends. A group of dolphins be-
gan swimming circles around
them, with the circle getting tight-
er and tighter. It was almost as if
the people were being herded
by the dolphins. At first, no one
could figure out what the dol-
phins were up to. Then they saw
the great white shark that was
coming towards them. Appar-
ently, the dolphins had made a


formation around the swimmers
to repel the shark. It worked. The
shark swam
away, leaving
the swimmers
to make it safely
to shore.
Sharks can
be a nuisance.
Many times we
can handle the
sharks we know John
about. It's the Hicks
ones we don't
see that can really take a bite out
of us. The swimmers had no idea
of the danger they were in. But
amazingly, a hedge of protection
was provided from a danger they
didn't know. To those of us who
belong to Christ, this has prob-
ably happened to us more times
than we will ever know. Many
times, God, who sees-every dan-
ger, has either steered us away
from a threat or steered the threat
away from us. He's been protect-
ing us' constantly from sharks we
never saw. The ones we did see


are just reminders of the many
others that God has kept from
hurting us over the years, as well
as the ones He will keep from us
in our life's journey ahead.
David reports in Psalm 121,
"My help comes from the Lord,
the Maker of heaven and earth.
He will not let your foot slip-
He who watches over you will
not slumber; indeed, He who
watches over His people will
neither slumber nor sleep. The
Lord watches over you. The sun
will not harm you by day, nor
the moon by night. The Lord will
keep you from all harm-He will
watch over your life; the Lord will
watch over your coming and go-
ing both now and forevermore."
There's never a moment when
God is not looking out for us!
There are times when we forget
that fact. He will help us through
those times when we know the
dangers around. He will be there
even when we aren't aware of
the dangers that might surround
us.


The challenge for us is to trust
God and not to let our fears de-
fine how we parent, how we re-
late to others, how we plan, or,
how we live. We need to c)aim
God's promise of strength and,
guidance. We need to remember.
that we can do all things through
Him who gives us strength. We
need to constantly pray for a
hedge of protection around us
and our loved ones. Even though
we might walk through the val-
ley of the shadow of death, we
need fear no evil, for God is with
us, His rod and His staff, they can
comfort us.
No matter where we are, no
matter how dark or dangerous it
seems to be, God is there and He
can handle it even if He has to'
send a few dolphins to protect us.
Even if He has to send His Son to
show us the way. Remember, our
help comes from the Lord, and
He who watches over us neither
slumbers nor sleeps. "Tis grace
has brought us safe thus far, and
grace will ead us home!"


Truths and fabrications; respect or disrespect?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I remember hearing about
the Liar's Club which appar-
ently holds an annual contest
among its members in London.
I heard that one year the winner
triumphed with his story about
a wooden motorcycle. It is all in
good fun; they must be a very cre-
ative group of people. I imagine
that their ingenuity is tops. Peter
Sellers kept my attention with his
plausible but improbable antics,
also a genius in his field.
Then there is a mother in Tex-
as, who also seems to have done
some "creative writing when her
daughter wanted to win a contest.
There were tickets as prizes for a
Hanna Montana show; appar-
ently a story was fabricated about
her daughter's father who was al-
leged to have been killed in Iraq.
The judges must have really been
moved by her story and awarded
the daughter the prize. All was
well until someone checked and
found out that the dead soldier-
father was non-existent; no such
soldier was killed in Iraq. When I
first saw the mother on television,
she was being followed by report-
ers and saying, "I don't need to...."
and there were comments about
nobody expecting the story, to be
checked. I wondered if perhaps
a veteran's organization wanted
to do something further for the
young "victim" and found out
about a fabrication. Suddenly, the
prize was withdrawn and the last
account I heard was about "not
knowing the essays had to be
true." I was curious about this lat-
ter comment coming sometimes
after "I don't need to..." Neigh-
bors talked about the girl's father;
his visiting and being employed
in carpet work. I guess her story
didn't begin with "Once upon a


time..." after all!
As I reflected on the whole
matter, I thought about winning
at all costs as a
value for some,
and our respect
(or lack of it)
for many of the
things we used
to hold sacred.
We respect sac-
rifices valiantly
made and the Samuel S.
losses suffered Thomas
by. families and
loved ones, including the loss of
life and limb for noble causes. To
exploit losses for personal gain
incurs the wrath of people who
respect those who make them,
and rightly so.
I have watched the erosion of
respect over the years in society,
and I guess the "winning at all
costs" attitudes that are a part of it
should not surprise me. Curiously,
those who live elsewhere in our
world demand respect for their
faith, their understanding of God
among those who practice their
religion or those who do not.
There are still some things that
are forbidden on our airwaves
here, but respect for religion or
God is no longer among them.
While visiting Germany at an
intersection where there were
traffic lights and pedestrian lights,
there was a sign cautioning jay-
walkers to "think about the exam-
ple you set for our children" when
the light was disrespected. In that
part of the "old world" it is impor-
tant to think about what persons
do, not only themselves, but for
the ones that will follow them.
We are now in the midst of a
scandal about steroids among our
sports figures; winning at any cost
is not the example we want to set
for our children or ourselves.
A Biblical story reports about
a chance to win at no matter


what cost and it is flatly rejected.
Matthew's gospel tells about Je-
sus' temptations as He begins His
earthly ministry; being forty days
in the wilderness and tempted
by the devil. The final tempta-
tion was to substitute the ends
for the means. Jesus is shown all
of the kingdoms of the world by
the devil; the kingdoms He came
to win and save. Satan told Him
"All these I will give to you if you
fall down and worship me (Mat-
thew 4:9)." Apparently winning at
any cost wasn't God's way: Jesus


didn't succumb to sacrificing be-,
lief, faith, respect for God or Him-
self, or us. In fact, it made Him
angry enough to cause the devil
to leave Him (verses 10-11).
At a time when wining at all
costs seems to be more com-
monplace and respect for things
held dear looks to be slipping; we
need to recapture our sense of'
the sacred. Beholding God, others
and self will go a long way to heal-
ing a broken and troubled world;
and restoring a rightful place to all
that is holy, sacred and good.

Reading labels can


At the store the other day, a can-
dy bar caught my eye Snickers
Charge, a new Snickers bar with
added caffeine and B vitamins.
Adding the vitamins I can un-
derstand. Knowing that consum-
ers are becoming more health
conscious, food companies have
been experimenting with adding
vitamins to everything from bread
to diet sodas. It doesn't surprise
me they would add vitamins to
candy bars. But caffeine? The can-
dy bar label promised a whopping
60 mg of caffeine. That's more caf-
feine than a can of cola (which has
about 45 mg.) but less than a can
of Red Bull, which boasts 80 mg
caffeine, which is about the same
as a cup of coffee.
I could not resist. I bought one
and ate it the next morning. I like
Snickers' bars, but this one had a
funny aftertaste. I did notice when
the caffeine kicked in.
As an adult, I can appreciate
the usefulness .of caffeine. My neu-
rologist even advised me that a
little caffeine mid-afternoon would
help take the edge off a headache.
I limit my caffeine intake- to one
beverage a day a little can be
beneficial, but too much is not
good.
The label indicated the Snick-
ers Charge bars were a trial pr6d-
uct, not in regular production. I
looked for them online, but could
only find mentions of. them on
blogs. The Snickers Web site has
no information. When I was back
at the same store a few days later,


Healthier
Life

with Katrina Elsken
they no longer had the candy bars
for sale.
So I can only speculate to
whom they originally thought
they might market the caffeinated
Snickers bars. Overworked news-
paper editors?
As a parent, I certainly wouldn't
want to. leave the super-charged
candy bars around the house
where children might be tempted.
It would be too easy for kids to
overload on the caffeine. So while
it doesn't appear the Snickers
Charge bars are going to become
part of their regular line, it's prob-
ably a good idea to read the labels
on any new product.

I recently printed my own
recipe for chicken soup which
contains no caffeine but plenty
of vitamins and I have gotten a
lot of reader response. The most
common comment I received was
that readers didn't know that us-
ing bones with just a little lemon
juice or vinegar -- to make soup,
added calcium to the soup. They
'had assumed bones were cooked

Tips for treating the common cold


By Rebekah Bernard, M.D.
Cold and flu season is at its
peak in Immokalee, and colds
are already spreading through
the community like wildfire. All
day long I am seeing children
and adults with upper respiratory.
infections, and I have gotten sick
with a nasty cold myself twice over
the last month!
Most colds are caused by mi-
croscopic germs called viruses.
These viruses are transmitted by
respiratory droplets or by hand-to-
hand contact. Most people with a
healthy immune system will fight
off cold germs on their own over a
few days to a few weeks.
Unfortunately, scientists have
not discovered any medicines that
will kill viruses. Antibiotics, which


are used to treat bacterial infec-
tions (another type of germ), do
not kill viruses, and they can even
cause harmful side effects. This
is why most doctors do not pre-
scribe antibiotics for people that
they think have viral infections.
The best way to fight off a cold
is to get as much rest as possible,
drink plenty of fluids, and take over-
the-counter medications to relieve
symptoms such as nasal conges-
tion and cough. Tylenol and ibu-
profen can be used to bring down
fever and treat the aches and pains
associated with colds. Be sure to
read the label carefully and if you
have any questions or concerns,
contact your physician.
. Sometimes a common cold
can develop into a more serious
infection, especially in people


who are older or have other health
problems. Warning signs for wors-
ening infections include high fe-
vers, inability to drink liquids, ex-
treme fatigue, confusion, difficulty
breathing, or symptoms that last
longer then two weeks, or seem to
be worsening rather than improv-
ing.
Colds can be prevented by
frequent hand washing, as most
viruses are transmitted by hand
contact. The virus that causes in-'
fluenza, or flu, can be prevented
by a simple vaccination that is still
available in some areas. The vac-
cine is effective throughout flu sea-
son, which according to the Cen-
ter foi Disease Control lasts until
May, so it is still a good idea to be
vaccinated if you have not done so
already.


Before making any change
in your diet or exercise plan,
consult your doctor. This is espe-
cially important if you are on any
prescription medications. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

The sheriff said that the sus-
pects took part in a smash-and-
grab robbery at the Circle K in
Lakeport that was reported short-
ly after I a.m. on Monday.
They fled and, after Glades
County officials sent out an APB
to Okeechobee Sheriff's Office, a
deputy spotted the group trying
to commit a similar robbery at
the Seneco station, according to
the sheriff.
That's when the first chase be-
gan.
Riding in a rental car, a Chevy
Impala, the suspects fled the
scene with officers trailing them
on the dark roads.
Halfway between Moore Ha-
ven and Lakeport deputies de-
ployed stop sticks, puncturing all
four tires of the vehicle.
"We blew out all four tires and
they skidded off to the shoulder,"
said the sheriff. "All four males
bailed and began to run."
St. Lucie County dispatched a
helicopter, while Charlotte Coun-
ty sent units to the scene to help
in the manhunt. Seminole Police


Voting
Continued From Page 1
Holly Whiddon, Glades Coun-
ty Supervisor of Elections said
that while Early Voting is becom-
ing more popular with the Glades
County Voters, there are still the
voters that want to go to the polls
on Election Day.
"It's very important for some
voters to have their vote count in
their precinct on Election Day, and
I can understand that, because I
fall into that category," she said.
Absentee ballots and early
voting are just two more conve-
niences offered to the public by
the elections office.
Any registered voter who does
not want to come into the office
in person can still request an Ab-
sentee Ballot.
SThe Elections office will be
open for the next two Saturdays,
from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m., provid-
ing a convenience for anyone
who wants to vote early at the Su-
pervisor of Elections office, in the
Glades County Courthouse.
If you have any questions, call
946-6005.

a chase by law enforcement agencies. One suspect remains


at-large.
sent its own K-9 unit to help, as
well, but finding the suspects
would be difficult.
Later in the day, dispatch noti-
fied the search party that a couple
fishing on the lake had just been
carjacked. Officials say two of the
suspects had gotten away to the
nearby Sportsman's Village -- an
RV park -- and threatened the
older couple, assaulting them


before leaving in their car, a Ford
Taurus.
'"A deputy happened on them
right after they had been car-
jacked," said Sheriff Whiddon.
"There was a man and a woman,
they knocked the man- down,
slapped the woman, and took
the keys.from her."
Deputies spotted the car and
stayed on top of them through

Moore Haven, coming through
U.S. 27 into Clewiston just after
noon, where Hendry County dep-
uties were ready to deploy stop
sticks just outside the city limits.
The suspects continued driving
the car on only its rims through
lunch time traffic until it came to
a stop inside the city. The two sus-
pects in that car didn't make it far
before they were handcuffed and
placed in custody.
At the same time at the other
side of the lake, one of the sus-
pects was found hiding in the
bushes at the edge of a canal.
"He was rather cold and prob-
- ably ready to give up," said Sheriff
Whiddon.
While one suspect remains
at-large, officials with the Glades
County Sheriff's Office were glad
to have caught the majority of the
suspects. They thanked all of the
departments who provided aid.
"That's exactly the point, we
needed to catch this crew," said
Sheriff Whiddon. "They got used
to shopping on their way from
Belle Glade. We want to end this
smash-and-grab stuff."

However, a timely emergency
ordinance was approved for im-
mediate compliance that bans

reported that his recent talks
with Division of Forestry about
the ongoing drought revealed
that the drought index was up in
the 700's. Mr. Jones commented
that two brush fires have already
happened and the Curry Island
fire was still a hazard.
"It is a matter of time before
it starts," said Bob Jones, refer-
ring to the impending brush fire
season.

The EAR scoping meeting was well attended by officials and
agencies. This photo was taken after the meeting. Jim LaRue,
far left, is the consultant for the evaluation and appraisal re-
port required for the county's comprehension plan.



Comprehensive



plan updated


Evaluation
and appraisal
report begins

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY The De-
partment of Community Affairs
(DCA) is a state agency for land
planning and community devel-
opment. It checks to see if local
growth complies with the state's
growth management laws. The
DCA requires that counties and
certain municipalities adopt a
comprehensive plan that ad-
dresses future land use, housing,
transportation, infrastructure,
coastal management, conserva-
tion, recreation, open space and
intergovernmental coordination
and capital improvements.
Every seven years there is a re-
quired Evaluation and Appraisal
Report (EAR) of the plan, and
there was a meeting for this pur-
pose Jan. 8. Jim LaRue, LaRue
Planning and Management Ser,
vices Inc.,,was on hand to explain
the agenda, and the provisions
required. He is the consultant for
Glades County's Comprehensive
Plan; and he addressed the is-
sues and any changes that may
be needed. The changes must be
consistent with the plan. Present
at the meeting were state agen-
cies, local government officials,
environmental organizations,
and agribusiness.
The five basic issues are: need
for economic opportunities like
centers of employment and re-
tail establishments, preservation
of rural lifestyle, new transitional
residential density, enhanced pro-
tection of at-risk environmental
areas, and assurance of adequate
future water supply.
Specifically for the land use is-
sues were the ideas of clustering
and open space. The idea of clus-
tering means making residential
areas self-sufficient by having
appropriate retail areas and rec-


reation within a convenient dis-
tance, or adjacent to a proposed
neighborhood. The concept of
open spaces would be for the
benefit of residents and not lim-
ited to just agricultural areas.
As far as water supply issues
are concerned, Mr. LaRue men-
tioned that the courity is currently
working on a master plan involv5
ing a 1I0-year span.
Melissa Yunas, Division of Fort
estry, commented how the comp
plan needs to include Fire Wise
Communities; and that whert
individuals plan for wildlife presto
ervation areas on their property
.they may need .to consider the
possibility of brush fires if the
land is not maintained,
Pete Quasius, Audubon Soci-
ety, mentioned the SFWMD could
prepare for eco-tourism possibili-
ties that may benefit the county
as well. He also included the
preservation of dark skies, which
refers to the reduction of invasive
urban lighting; and to the use of
local railways that have access to
historical sites of interests.
Tracy Whirls, economic de#
velopment director, commented
on the tourism tax issue that will
soon be decided by ballot; and
how large family and corporation
land holdings must be consid-
ered.
"We can fix what the urban
areas did not do correctly," Ms.
Whirls said
JimLaRue commented that
public hearings with community/
input is necessary as well pasre-
views from the county commis-
sioners and the planning -and
zoning board. By May, or June it
will be adopted and in July the
report will be due.
"Protection of rural lifestyle
and water issues were important
today where they may not have
been seven years ago," he said.

ing facilities will exist within the
Brighton Reservation boundar-
ies, however the probable need
for approximately 5,000 em-
ployees may call for housing,
retail and transit development
which would take place in the
surrounding areas of Glades
County.
Paul Beck mentioned that the
Seminole Tribe of Florida asked
to meet with the board and ex-
change greetings. Tribal coun-
cilmen Roger Smith and Johnny
Jones have been invited to at-
tend the Feb. 12 county com-
missioners' meeting.


"We will work together and
complement each other. They
are an integral part of Gladeg
County," said Mr. Beck.
The chairman also reported
that local government will par-
ticipate in the parade for the
Brighton Festival and Rodeo in
mid February, and that in early
March the tribe will participate
in the Chalo Nitka parade and
festival located in Moore Haven.
In recent years the South Florida
region has seen many changes
in population growth, commu-
nity affairs, infrastructure, en-
vironmental concerns and em-
ployment.
Residents in Brighton and
other Glades County communi-
ties have begun to acknowledge
the shared concerns for preser-
vation of culture, local history,
education and rural life.
