Sherri Fleming is WGS teacher of the year


Teaching is
a blessing
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MUSE -- Sherri Fleming gained
hands on experience when she
worked as a classroom para-
professional for 16 years in the
Glades County School District.
The skills she acquired set the
stage for her college classes and
her entrance into the world of
teaching first and second grade
at West Glades School. She was
named Teacher of the Year 2009.
Ms. Fleming said she loves
the accelerated reading pro-
gram implemented in the local
elementary schools. Her class
has achieved a 90 percent score
throughout most of the school


year. An entire class reads the
same literature and they bolster
each other while they read and
take the test.
One of the most cherished
lessons she has brought to her
students is their correspondence
with troops in Iraq. Her class
raised money for gifts and sup-
plies that were distributed to mili-
tary penpals and their comrades.
They did this by obstaining
from buying Slushee treats in the
afternoon. Instead, they donated
the money and accumulated
about $1,300 to spend on toilet-
ries and other simple items that
people take for granted like sun-
screen.
The children sent many
charming, illustrated letters to
the troops. The soldiers were so
impressed with the letters that


they wallpapered their barracks
with them. Ms. Fleming has kept
a scrapbook of the children's let-
ters and the penpal letters and
photos from Iraq.
"It is great to do something
you love. I'm very blessed to
teach these kids. It is such a huge
responsibility, and such an enjoy-
able experience," she said.
Fleming's class has been
involved in recycling awareness
activities, and it received a $1,000
award from the Southwest Flor-
ida Council for Environmental
Education Inc. With this money,
a lovely garden with a statue was
created for the interior buildings
on campus.
When she was preparing to
be a certified teacher she entered
college about the same time that

Free bread Tuesdays

and Saturdays


Sunshine State
Quartet sings
Jan. 27

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- The New
Hope Baptist Church on Yaun
Road in Moore Haven has
expanded its bread give-a-way
program to two days a week,
according to Pastor Darrel Bra-
nham.
He and church members
noticed that so many people
participated in the program that


it was difficult to serve everyone,
and the congestion was hectic.
The pastor mentioned that
there was an increase in the
number of young families with
children, and a marked increase
in senior citizens. By the time
Saturday's free bread program
was over it was obvious that
only one day a week was insuf-
ficient.
He and church volunteers
have carried out a once a week
program for a while now, and
last week they gave bread to
260 recipients. The pastor men-
tioned that the number of recipi-

Korff recognized for work


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MUSE-- Every veteran
teacher knows that school cus-
todians keep a school running
smoothly.
Custodians perform duties
that allow for the organized
flow of school procedure,
schedules, and foot traffic of
hundreds of people. If some-
thing spills on the walkway, it
will not be long before the effi-
cient schedule screeches to a
halt. The custodian is on call
and she will fix that problem
better than anyone else.
Debra Korff, custodian, was
awarded the Support Personnel


Employee of the Year for West
Glades School. Her dedicated
work at school involves a lot of
elbow grease during the after-
noon and into the evening.
She acquired her experi-
ence after 30 years in the com-
mercial cleaning business. This
is her fourth year with Glades
County schools, and she is up
to the workload.
"I like the physical challenge.
It is easy to get overwhelmed
when you go in six different
directions, but I enjoy being
active," said. Ms. Korff.
The waxed floors, gleaming
windows and litter free campus
are easily noticed, but visitors
probably do not realize all the


work that goes on behind the
scenes.
She had a lot of praise for
the students, and commented
that they are a good group of
kids. They are appreciative, and
she has not seen any malicious
messiness. This makes it so
much easier for her to keep the
school tidy.
Ms. Korff has enjoyed watch-
ing the wildlife in Glades Coun-
ty for 20 years, and she hates to
see it disappear. She resides in
Muse and has two teenage chil-
dren.

Attorney General warns

medicine can be harmful


TALLAHASSEE -- Attorney
General Bill McCollum issued a
consumer advisory on the heels
of an advisory from the Food and
Drug Administration (FDA) that
warned over-the-counter cold
medicines should not be given
to children under the age of two
years old. The FDA advisory cites
possible side effects that could be
serious and potentially life-threat-
ening in babies and toddlers and
warns parents that while the
medicines might appear to ease
cold symptoms, in older children,
there is no evidence that they ac-
tually help younger children.
It is imperative that parents get
this important message of safety
for their young children, said At-
torney General McCollum. "When
a child is sick, our first instinct is
to do whatever we can to make
them feel better, but parents need
to be aware that medicines once
thought to be safe could instead
be deadly."
Attorney General McCollum re-
minded parents that cold season
is still in full swing and parents
should make sure they don't give
their younger children medicine
they may have purchased to give
their older siblings. The Centers
for Disease Control and Preven-


tion reported last year that more
than 1,500 babies and toddlers
wound up in emergency rooms
over a two-year period because
of the drugs. The FDA has also
found more than 120 child deaths
have been directly linked to anti-
histamines or decongestants over
the past 40 years.
The FDA has not yet deter-
mined whether older children are
also at risk but offered the follow-
ing guidelines for parents when
giving older children the medi-
cines: follow the dosing direc-
tions on the label of any over-the-
counter medication; understand
that these drugs will NOT cure or
shorten the duration of the com-
mon cold; check the "Drug Facts"
label to learn what active ingredi-
ents are in the products because
many over-the-counter cough
and cold products contain mul-
tiple active ingredients; and only
use measuring spoons or cups
that come with the medicine or
those made specifically for mea-
suring drugs.
More information, including
the FDA advisory, is available on
the FDA's website at http://www.
fda.gov/cder/index.html.


Understanding your propel


By Kristina Kulpa
Hendry County Property
Appraiser
For the past four weeks I
have been explaining the vari-
ous parts of Amendment One
that you will be voting on Jan.
29, 2008.
This week I will address
Non-Homestead Property As-
sessment Cap. The first part
will show the Amendment as
it will appear on the ballot, af-
ter that I will have a couple of
examples to help you under-
stand what this Cap will do for
you if passed.
The non-homestead prop-
erty assessment cap limits
the assessment increases for
specified non homestead real
property to 10 percent each
year. Property will be as-
sessed at just value following
an improvement, as defined
by general law, and may be
assessed at just value follow-
ing a change of ownership or
control if provided by general
law. This limitation does not
apply to school district taxes.
This limitation is repealed ef-
fective January 1, 2019, unless
renewed by a vote of the elec-
tors in the general election
held in 2018.
Further, this revision:
Repeals obsolete lan-
guage on the homestead ex-
emption when it was less than
$25,000 and did not apply uni-
formly to property taxes lev-
ied by all local governments.
Provides for homestead
exemptions to be repealed if
a future constitutional amend-
ment provides for assessment
of homesteads "at less than
just value" rather than as cur-
rently provided "at a specified
percentage" of just value.
Schedules the changes to
take effect upon approval by
the electors and operate retro-
actively to January 1, 2008, if
approved in a special election
held on January 29, 2008, or
to take effect January 1, 2009,
if approved in the general
election held in November of
2008. The limitation on an-
nual assessment increases for
specified real property shall
first apply to the 2009 tax roll
if this revision is approved in a
special election held on Janu-


ary 29, 2008, or shall first ap-
ply to the 2010 tax roll if this
revision is approved in the
general election held in No-
vember of 2008.
If passed the following is
how the Amendment will ap-
ply to you.
Beginning January 1, 2009,
an assessment cap similar to
Save Our Homes is proposed
for non-homestead proper-
ties. The annual assessment
cap on these types of proper-
ties will be ten percent.
To receive the assessment
cap the owner of the property
will be required to file an an-
nual application. This non-
homestead property assess-
ment cap applies to owners
of second homes, commercial
properties and vacant parcels.
It does not apply to school dis-
trict levies.
For example if your prop-
erty is valued at $100,000 this
year and property values go
up by 20 percent next year,
the market value of your prop-
erty will be $120,000, but your
taxable value will only be
$110,000. Based on a tax rate
of 17.5 mils you will save $175
in next years taxes.
Another example is if your
property is valued at $100,000
this year and property values
go up by eight percent next
year, the market value of your
property will be $108,000,
and your taxable value will
be $108,000. Because the in-
crease in property value did
not reach the 10 percent limit.
This assessment limitation
does not apply to school tax
levies.
The assessment limitation
will expire in ten years. At
that time, voters will decide
whether to reauthorize it.
Residential properties of
nine units or less will surren-
der accumulated protections
at change of ownership or
control, as defined by gen-
eral law. Initial application
required, you must apply by
March 1.
This exemption does not
apply to Classified Use (Green-
belt/Ag) Lands.

Guidelines for a winning catch


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Someone please explain a
great mystery to me. Why is it
that a person who is generally
honest in all things cannot give
you an accurate
description of
the fish he has
caught? I mean,
if you asked
this person to
tell you his net
financial worth,
he would tell the
truth. If asked John
to describe his Hicks
wife he would
do so objectively. But for the life
of him he cannot give an hon-
est, accurate description of a fish
he caught. When showing you
the length of the fish, he cannot
restrain his hands. And it's even
worse when he describes the fish
that got away.
We are right at the start of the
FLW fishing tournament in Clew-
iston. For the next few days, fish-
Sermen and women from all over
the United States will be search-
ing Lake O for those special spots
where the fish are gathered and
biting. With the Lake level like it
is, the winners will probably be
those who find the glory holes
or special spots. The size of their
catches will be recorded, but
there will still be those stories of
the one that got away.


Having enjoyed fishing most
of my life, I decided I would offer
some guidelines from some of my
life lessons. As someone greater
than me once shared, "Those
who have ears, let them hear".
First, if you want to be a suc-
cessful fisherman, you don't look
for the most comfortable spot on
the lake. You go to where the fish
are, and then you make it as easy
and attractive as possible for the
fish to swallow your hook. Those
who repeatedly catch the most
fish are those who understand
fish and strategize accordingly.
In contrast, there are those
who just cast out in the waters
without a strategy, hoping some-
thing might bite. Occasionally
they might have an "even a blind
hog can find an acorn once in
a while" experience, but most
of the time those who have no
strategy have results that show it.
Those who just fish in the most
comfortable fishing spots have
the poorest catches.
Second, know what you are
fishing for. If you are fishing for
bass, there are certain baits that
are more effective than others. If
you are fishing for Crappie, bass
bait would not give you the best
results. Sometimes one bait might
work better on one day and a dif-
ferent bait the next. Bigger fish
bite bigger baits, but you usually
have fewer strikes. Smaller fish
tend to bite more often. Knowing
what you are fishing for is impor-


tant to get the best catch.
Third, realize that there are go-
ing to be times when the fish will
not bite, regardless of what you
might offer them. Those that get
the best catches are those who
stick with it, even in slow times,
and don't give up.
If you think about it, there are
a lot of similarities between fish-
ing for fish and fishing for people.
First, it's important to go where
the people are. There are too
many churches who want to win
people to Christ as long as it can
be done in a comfortable way.
They have no real strategy, and
their results show it.
Second, it's important to know
what you are fishing for. Realize
that you would use a different bait
if you are fishing for children than
if you were fishing for youth or
adults. Don't be afraid to try dif-
ferent baits if you aren't getting
many nibbles on what you are
offering.
Third, don't give up. Some-
times the timing isn't right at the
moment to get the catch you are
desiring, but those who keep the
faith and keep at it will get results.
Regroup, re-strategize as neces-
sary following the first and sec-
ond guidelines, and then go out
again.
If you go where the fish are bit-
ing, knowing what you are fishing
for, using the appropriate baits,
and stay at it, statistics show you
will reap a winning catch.


We stand on Him who is all truth


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
The Christian Church does not
stand on fractions of truth but on
HIM who is all TRUTH! Individual
doctrines save no one; only Christ
saves! Does He not say, "I am THE
TRUTH?" When He is our solid
foundation we say, "For there are
no "truths" which are not inher-
ent in Him who is all truth.
We may listen to any man so
long as he makes plain to us truth.
We may profit from the findings of
Luther, Wesley, George Fox, Rog-
er Williams, Dietrich Bonhoeffer,
Soren Kiefegaard, or any man or
group who call our attention to
what is essentially. Christian; but
our faith may not rest on those, for
they are only fellow-servants. We
are indebted to anyone who can
-+- reveal the revelation of the Christ
to us. It must be made clear, how-
ever, that WE STAND ON CHRIST!
We are a part of His Church and
His alone! While standing on Him
*who is Truth we freely admit we
.do not understand Him fully.
Is it necessary to comprehend
the full depth of our Foundation
,-to be established in Him? Eternity
is provided that we might have
opportunity to appreciate more
fully the Father and the Son.
The Church can never' be es-
tablished on one or more facets
,of Truth. We may employ meth-
ods without being called Method-
ist; practice baptism (immersion).
,without being called Baptists.
IWe may admit to the rule of the
eldership (Presbyters) without
'being called Presbyterians; may
:be Catholic (universal) without
being called Roman Catholics.
We my accept New Testament.


episcopacy without being known
as Episcopalians. We may desire
the warmth of Pentecost and not
belong to the Pentecostal Church;
may be friends without belonging
to the Friends Church. We may
admire Luther and encourage
him to assist our growing faith
without being Lutherans. In fact,
Luther said "Don't call yourselves
Lutherans, but call yourselves
Christians." Truth demands that
we be independent thinkers
without denominating ourselves;
Independents and cooperative.
without naming ourselves Co-
operatives. We may be disciples
without the official title "Dis-
ciples"; may give ear to Thomas
and Alexander Campbell without
being "Campbellites." We admire
and love Paul but are not Paulites.
He asks us as well as the Corin-
thians: '"Was Paul crucified for
you?" Our people have desired
to see things whole. We stand
on Christ and count as friends all
teachers, preachers and scholars
who refresh us in the truth and
make the Christ better known to
us. We may accept all men as
brothers in Adam, though we fol-
low none but Christ. We stand on
Christ or we stand on a founda-
tion of sand! To stand on Method
or Baptism or Episcopacy or any
other fraction of truth is essential-
ly idolatrous because it elevates
THINGS less than Christ to a level
with Him. We desire to stand on
ALL TRUTH!
Where we stand (and what
we believe) could be stated very
appropriately in these words of
John R. Bodo, as he paraphrased
the Gettysburg Address: "Four-
score and -Seven Generations
ago, the Apostles brought forth


on another continent a new fel-
lowship, conceived in the liberty
of redeemed men, and dedicated
to the proposition that all men
are created for redemption. Now
and always, we are engaged in a
great, global war, testing whether
this fellowship, or any congrega-
tion thereof, is worthy to endure.
We are met on one small battle-
field of that war. We have come to
dedicate our common endeavor
as a living testimony for Him who
gave His life that we might live.
It is altogether fitting. But, in a
large sense, we cannot dedicate,
we cannot hallow this endeavor.
God's only Son, who died and
lives, having conquered death,
has consecrated it far above our
poor power to add or detract.
The world will little note, nor long
remember, what we might do in
2008 A.D.; but it must never forget
what He did in 29 A.D. It is for us,
his soldiers, therefore to be dedi-
cated to the ongoing work which
He, Who ever goes before us, has
so clearly commanded. It is for us
also to be dedicated to the task at
hand; That from our Living Lord
we take increased devotion; That
we here highly resolve that He
shall not have died in vain; That
this congregation, under God,
shall have a new breadth of ser-
vice; And the Christian Church led
by Christ, striving for Christ shall
advance in all the earth."


Being a witness in spite of



myself; fear affirming faith


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A while back, I used to make
regular plane trips from Miami
with a stop in Tampa along the
way. The small,
propeller-driv-
en planes had
more turbu-
lence than larger
planes and the .
crew explained I
it was about the
thermal air cur-
rents across the Samuel S.
Everglades and Thomas
on Tampa Bay.
One flight found me next to a
young lady who became uncom-
fortable as the ride got bumpier.
She turned to me and told me
about her fear, but I assured her
that I had taken this particular
trip many times and all was nor-
mal. I explained about the air
currents and after a few minutes
she became calmer. I felt that I
had done a good deed in a way.
All was well as we arrived at
Tampa, but suddenly we took off
again. This was not normal and
I wondered what was going on.
My neighbor in the next seat told
me how helpful I had been to
her; she was afraid but my calm
presence and mty explanation
helped her through. She thanked
me and I became very silent.
I was far less calm inside than
she imagined. The plane started
to descend once more and was
making a second approach at the


airport when it took off a second
time. I was now concerned more
than before; and I looked at my
neighbor who was smiling and
calm. I looked out the window;
it seemed that there were ambu-
lances and fire trucks moving on
the field.
I looked at my now-serene
neighbor and remember that it
felt like blood was draining out
of my face. I was perspiring. We
came in for a third approach and
this time we landed; more gently
than I ever remembered landing
in the past. My heart rate returned
to normal as I walked to the front
of the plane and asked the crew
"What happened?" They told me
that an indicator light which indi-
cated the wheels were down had
failed to come on, and they had to
circle to confirm from the tower
that the wheels were in position
and, hopefully, locked in place.
My seatmate went blissfully on
her way and waved goodbye.
When everything was checked
out, we went onto the next leg
of the trip and I continued on-
anyway! As I thought about the
experience, I thought about risky
situations that we all encounter;
some people are better than oth-
ers at some things, not so good
at other risks. The lesson for me
to take from what happened was
to think what it is all about and
who is finally in charge.
There is a long discourse in 2
Corinthians (chapter 11, verses
16) when Paul talks about all
that has happened to him; being
beaten, being shipwrecked, be-


ing imprisoned, being exposed
to death, dangers from friends
and dangers from strangers, be-
ing hungry and thirsty, being
cold, and then having to worry
about how things were going
in the Churches he served. He
notes "If I must boast, I will boast
of the things that show my weak-
ness (v. 30)." He points out that
what has happened to him keeps
him from becoming conceited
(chapter 12, verse 7), he recog-
nizes that.we are not self-made
people. In spite of it all, he is as-
sured by God that "My grace is
sufficient for you, for my power
is made perfect in weakness."
Ultimately, it is God's grace
and presence that got me
through that day; that gets me
through, that gets us all through.
Nothing seems to be more a sign
of our mortality than being help-
lessly out of control when we'd
like very much to be in complete
control. It turns out our life is
not to be that way. We cannot
live without God's grace and His
looking after us. The things that
happen to us and leave us weak,
afraid, full of emotions, and yet
do not defeat or kill us, are the
times we can look back and say,
"Surely, God was with us!"
Apparently, I was a silent wit-
ness to a faith that it was going
to be all right on that flight, a wit-
ness to a faith to someone else I
really didn't know. I was witness-
ing to faith and hope even when
I didn't want to be. God uses our
fears and weaknesses too. You
better believe it!

PutthePain relief for
Pomegranates are rich in nutrients Putthe / rth ,s rains
/ / and muscle soreness


If you want a little variety in
your diet, consider pomegran-
ates.
Pomegranates are bright red
fruit filled with juicy seeds. Pome-
granate juice is tart and has a
deep red color.
Pomegranates are high in anti-
oxidants, which help to rid itself
of toxins. Pomegranates are a
good source of potassium and Vi-
tamin C, and also contain calcium
and iron.
Until recently, the only thing I
knew about pomegranates came
from mythology. According to
Greek mythology, Persephone
was the daughter of Demeter,
goddess of the harvest. Hades, the
Greek god of the Underworld, fell
in love with her and kidnapped
her to be his wife. Demeter was
so upset when her daughter dis-
appeared that she refused to let
anything grow, the world turned
cold and barren. In order to save
the Earth, the Greek god Zeus,
sent the messenger Hermes to
Hades to make him release Perse-
phone, because she had not died,
and so should not have been in
the Underworld, Hades argued
that because Petsephone had eat-
en part of a Pomegranate (some
legends say she ate pomegranate
seeds) she could not leave. They
finally agreed on a compromise,
Persephone could return to her
mother, but had to spend part of
each year with Hades, as she had
eaten part of a fruit of the Under-
world. According to the legend,
each year when Persephone re-
turns to Hades, Demeter is so sad
that the world grows cold with
winter.
Many cultures have legends
that include pomegranates. Ac-
cording to some Jewish texts,
it was a pomegranate not an
apple tree that caused all the
trouble in the Garden of Eden.
Pomegranates are red fruit


A
Healthier
Life -

with Katrina Elsken

filled with "arils" little juice
sacks that each contain one
seed. Some people just want the
juice, but the seeds themselves
are considered edible and a good
source of fiber. The white mem-
brane that surrounds the arils is
bitter and not recommended for
consumption, according to the
California Pomegranate Council.
In North America, the com-
mercial harvest season is from
October through January. They
grow best in hot, dry climates.
Pomegranates are not harvest-
ed until they are ripe, so if you
see fresh pomegranates for sale,
they are ready to eat. Choose the
best pomegranates by picking
them up, the heavier the fruit,
the more juice it contains.
The council suggests three
methods for juicing pomegran-
ates. If you. juice your own, be
careful because, pomegranate
juice stains.
JUICER METHOD: Cut the
fresh pomegranate in half as you
would a grapefruit. We recom-
mend using a hand-press juicer
to juice a pomegranate. If you
use an electric juicer, take care
not to juice the membrane, so
that the juice remains sweet.
Strain the juice through a cheese-
cloth-lined strainer or sieve.
BLENDER METHOD: Place
1-1/2 to 2 cups seeds in a blend-
er; blend until liquefied. Pour
through a 'cheesecloth-lined
strainer or sieve.


ROLLING METHOD: On a
hard surface, press the palm of
your hand against a pomegranate
and gently roll to break all of the
arils inside (crackling stops when
all seed sacs have broken open).
Pierce the rind and squeeze out
juice or poke in a straw and press
to release juice. Rolling can be
done inside a plastic bag to con-
tain juice that leaks through the
skin.
The Pomegranate Council of-
fers these ideas for cooking with
pomegranates:
Pomegranate, Orange,
Papaya and Kiwi Salad
1-1/2 teaspoons white wine
vinegar
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/8 teaspoon crushed red pep-
per flakes
1/4 cup olive oil
1-1/2 quarts mixed greens
2 oranges, peeled and sliced
2 medium papayas, peeled
and sliced
4 kiwis, peeled and sliced
1 medium pomegranate, seed-
ed (about 3/4 cup)
To make dressing, combine

It's Girl Scout
Cookie Time
Remember, all things in mod-
eration. Remind yourself of the
importance of moderation when
tempted with the delicious annual
treat of Girl Scout cookies. And re-
member to read the labels. When
you consider the calorie content
and carbohydrates per serving,
make sure you know how many
cookies are considered a "serv-
ing." Also, remember that these
cookies freeze well, so you don't
have to eat the whole box "before
it gets stale."
Before making any change
to your diet or exercise rou-
tine, consult your doctor.
This is particularly important
if you are on any prescription
medications. Some drugs in-
teract badly with foods that
would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."

RN graduation
On Dec. 12, eleven Palm Beach Community College (PBCC) graduating nurses attended a
graduation recognition luncheon at HRMC.
Hendry Regional Medical Center, along with Glades General Hospital, provides clinical
rotation courses for PBCC nursing students, which enables them to locally complete the
clinical portion of their RN training. They were quite happy that they did not have to make
the long drive to the east coast for this segment of instruction. The students should now
be prepared to take their RN State Board tests. Sue Seeley, (pictured at far left) the Chief
Nursing Officer at Hendry Regional Medical Center and David McClusky, HRMC's Clinical

Barfield is CCS Spelling Bee champ


MOORE HAVEN The stage
was decorated nicely with flow-
ers and bees, but that doesn't
take away from the fact that it
takes a lot of courage to stand on
stage in front of the entire school
anticipating the moment when a
word may be spelled incorrectly,
a bell rings and then you have
to walk off stage. However, for
Adam Barfield that was not the
case. He is an eighth grade in
Mr. David Balsbaugh's class who
took first place in the Community
Christian School Spelling Bee! His
family was the first to congratu-
late him with this victory. Second
place was taken by Larry Collins


and the third place speller was
Olivia Molina. Adam and Larry
will represent C.C.S. at the county
spelling bee which will be held
at Eastside Elementary School
on Feb. 5 at 7 p.m. Olivia Molina
will be the alternate. Keep up the
great work!
We are very proud of all the
students who participated in the
Spelling Bee. The representatives
from each grade included: third
graders Deedra Shackford and
Chase Anderson; fourth graders
Madison Schaaf and Matthew
Reyna; fifth Graders Olivia Molina
and Jenifer Aguila; sixth graders
Taylor Corbitt and Faith Sherrod;


seventh graders Larry Collins and
Rodni Mercer; eighth graders
Adam Barfield and Ashley Cruz.
The alternates included Quinton
Willis, Cole Hamil, EmmaRaye
Barfield, Dalton Longenecker,
Jesse Imhoff, and Lucy Luna.
We appreciate our principal,
Mr. Gwaltney and our judges,
Mrs. Marsha Bechtel and Ms. Lori
Howard of the Barron Library
who gave their time and support.
Also thanks Mrs. Ginger Marinell,

The West Glades School Read-
ing Leadership Team is as excited
about their new reading program
as the students themselves will
be once they've experienced this
new, innovative way of dramati-
cally improving their reading skills
schedule for Feb. 14 in the school
cafeteria.
"Building Better Readers" is a
program designed and distributed
to schools by the Florida Depart-
ment of Education/FBBR, that will
show and explain how student's
fluency can be increased.
This special program is for kin-
dergarten through fifth grade.
This is a workshop with par-
ents to try to give them ideas for
things they can do at home, to
give them a strategy for their chil-
dren at home that will vastly im-
prove their reading skills around
which all education is based. Dis-
cussions will take place regard-
ing choosing the right book, and
showing the way to play games
that will help children practice
sight words as well as showing
them how they can help to in-
crease fluency.
The workshop will be set up
as a work site with teachers and
leaders wearing work clothes as
they would for a construction site.
The whole idea is to demonstrate
that this is a working project that
can go a long way toward increas-


Some of the reading class.
ing'a student's fluency, being able
to read quickly with expression in
order that they can learn to read
without mistakes.
For instance there will be ten
simple quick activities, which will
eliminate the old excuse. "I don't
have time." There will be easy-to-
follow directions and instructions
designed to stimulate the stu-
dents' interest in reading.
Sign-up sheets have been sent
home with students that must
be signed and returned which is
their reservation. The program is
limited to 100 families.


Submitted to INI: Mrs. Huysman

A light meal will be provided
from 5:30 to 6 p.m.
The workshop will be a two-
hour session specifically designed
to make a difference in all the
child's school life. After all, read-
ing,
without exception, affects ev-
ery subject.
An interpreter will be provided
for Spanish-speaking parents.
If you have questions regard-
ing any phase of this program,
you are invited to call West Glades
School at 675-3490.

Where have all the Honey Bees gone?


By Angela Sachan
'Florida Yards and Neighborhoods
You have no doubt heard that
honey bees are disappearing all
over the country. This is not a ru-
mor. Beekeepers in 35 states re-
port as much*as a 50-90 percent
decline in local populations and
over 30 percent of honeybees na-
tionwide have died out so far in
2006-2007.
This is important to you and
me because bee pollination is
needed for 35 percent of our food
supply. It is common practice ,for
beekeepers to travel cross coun-
try pulling their bees behind them
and renting them to farmers for
pollination of crops.
Here is what is happening.
Large numbers of worker bees in
an individual hive simply wander
off. They leave behind the queen,
her eggs and a few younger bees
which then starve. It is as though
the field-workers have become
.disoriented or amnesic or have
lost their sense of direction. Even-
tually they die far from their hive
where researchers trying to study
this problem have trouble even
finding them. Ordinarily, other
insects or wild bees would take
over such a vacant hive but none
will come near these abandoned
homes until a great deal of time
has passed or the hive has been
fumigated.
Scientists have named this
ailment Colony Collapse Disor-
der (CCD) and have been work-
ing hard to determine the cause.
Thanks to advances in gene
research top bee researchers
have been able to learn which
diseases, pesticides, fungus and
parasites are, and are not, pres-
ent in honey bees with the disor-


der. It looks like a combination of
factors must be present for CCD
to occur but a new virus called
Israeli acute paralysis virus is al-
most always found in affected
bees. This virus can be transmit-
ted by the Varroa mite and was
first identified in Israel in 2002.
Further research will concentrate
on determining actual cause and,
hopefully, control.
In the meantime, here is some
good news. Native pollinators
are already beginning to become
more active. Even in fields where
rented honeybees are present,
pollinators such as flies, 'moths,
and wild bumblebees supplement
honeybee pollination. There are
more than four thousand species
of Native American pollinators;
and it appears that their activity
and that of other pollinators will
increase if the honeybee popula-
tion continues to decline.
Some research indicates a de-
cline in native species is also oc-
curring and that is where you and
I have a role to play.
Here is how you can help.
Attract native pollinators to
your garden
Pollinators are essential for
high yield and high quality of
many vegetables and fruits in
the garden. For example, straw-
berries, squash, melons, citrus,
sweet cherries, and apples must
have pollinators to ensure a high
yield of good produce
When people think of pollina-
tion, many focus on bees. Bees
are the principal pollinators, but
there are other important pollina-
tors as well. These include other
.insects such as flies, moths, but-
terflies, wasps, and even some
beetles. They also include hum-
mingbirds and bats.


'Gardeners can do several
things to preserve, protect, and
attract pollinators.
1. Diversify garden plantings
to offer a variety of flower colors,
fragrances, and shapes through-
out the growing season. Different
flowers attract different pollina-
tors.
2. Consider leaving flowering
weeds such as Spanish needles
or beggar's-ticks (Bidens alba) to
serve as alternate nectar sources
for pollinators.
3. Limit pesticide use.
When insecticides are nec-
essary use those that are least
disruptive and apply when pol-
linators are least active (very early
morning, late evening, or after
dark).
Never apply insecticides to
plants that are blooming or when
it is windy.
Provide a source of water-
much like that you give your but-
terflies
4. Leave some bare patches.
Some female bees nest in tunnels
they dig in the dirt!
Bees, including Africanized
bees, visiting flowers are not a
concern. However, keep your
distance from any bee nest. The
Africanized bee will be VERY de-
fensive when protecting its hive.
Call a professional to remove
any bee hive. If you are attacked,
run as fast as you .can to cover (a
house, a car).
For more information, con-
tact your local extension office.
In Glades County call (863) 956-
0244, in Highlands County call
402-6540, and in Okeechobee
County call (863) 753-6469. Ask
when the Master Gardeners are
available!

Around the area: Basketball season picking up


INI/Naji Tobias
Focused
In a Jan. 10 rivalry basketball game between the Glades
Central Raiders and the Pahokee Blue Devils, senior point
guard Antavious Wilson attempts and makes this free throw
in the second half. Though he showed tenacity and heart in
this contest, it was not nearly enough as Glades Central won,
65-49. As of Jan. 14, Glades Central has an 8-5 record, while
Pahokee has a 7-8 record.


INI/Naji Tobias
Bank shot
Glades Central Raiders senior guard/forward Richard John-
son attempts a lay-up shot in the second half of their game
against the Clewiston Tigers. Richard actually makes the
bucket even though he was well-covered by a Tigers defend-
er in the Jan. 12 contest.


INI/Naji Tobias
Agent 'zero'
Glades Central senior forward Eddie Poole, wearing '0', led
the Raiders with 12 points and 31 rebounds in a convincing
65-49 win over the Pahokee Blue Devils on Jan. 10. Two days
later against the Clewiston Tigers, he was dominant through-
out the game in a 67-36 win Glades Central's second win
over Clewiston. Eddie is currently one of Palm Beach Coun-
ty's leading rebounders.

INI/Naji Tobias
Play of the game
In the Jan. 12 contest between the Glades Central Raiders
and the Clewiston Tigers, the play of the game arguably
- was the uncontested two-hand dunk made by sophomore
center Clive Wolford in a 67-36 Raiders win to move them to
8-5 as of Jan. 14.


INI/Naji Tobias
Inbounds pass
Clewiston Tigers junior guard Nicholas Gutshall makes an in-
bounds pass in the second half, while Glades Central Raiders
senior guard James Ingram applies the pressure on him to
attempt a steal. No steal for James, but great defense overall
contributed heavily to a 67-36 Raiders dismantling over the
Tigers in the Jan. 12 contest.

classroom
The parent-student interaction
also serves as a reading workshop
where "clues" reveal key read-
ing and thinking strategies. These
mental strategies bolster success-
ful reading skills. As the movie
plot intensifies, clues are revealed
that may help solve the mystery,
too.
The opportunity will allow par-
ents, students and teachers to be
involved as a community. Addi-


tionally, it is a chance for parents
to understand what their middle
school child is being asked to do
in the academic classroom. It will
also be an occasion for the stu-
dent and parent to put their heads
together and share the work of
trying to make the clues fit togeth-
er.
Broadly speaking, children
in the middle are usually age 10-
14, and community schools vary
in how they group them. Some
puberty and adolescent issues
emerge as early as 10, or as late as
14, according to officials.
Middle school is a critical stage


for youth, and sometimes their
unique needs are not met as state
mandated instructions focus on
elemetary milestones and high
school benchmarks.They are truly
in the middle, and sometimes
their academic and psychologi-
cal requirements must be given
an original approach to fit their
needs.
Some parents may have been
looking forward to their child
growing up to take on more of
life's responsibilities when they
reached secondary school. How-
ever, it may be that this stage of
life has the most challenges, and


many parents have come to real-
ize that middle school kids need
just as much attention, guidance
and hugs as the little ones; and in
some instances they need more.
Take advantage of the enter-
tainment, which' will be held on
Wednesday, Jan. 30 in the Glades
County Auditorium located on
the MHHS campus from 5 to 7:30
p.m. Contact Mrs. Baldwin at
(863) 946-0811 for more informa-
tion.

"It just shot up, and we started
on Tuesdays," Pastor Branham
said
For seven days a week New
Hope Baptist Church receives
donated bread and other baked
goods from Wynn Dixie in Lehigh
Acres. They also receive donuts
from Sweet Bay in Lehigh Acres.
Since Pastor Branham lives


in Lehigh Acres he is able to pick
up the bread most days except
on Sunday, and volunteers help
retrieve on other days.
The church also announces

When Spot is stressed, depression can hit


If your dog is down, he may not
be alone. Spot can get 'stressed.
Dogs, it seems, get depressed just
like people. More and more dog
owners are inquiring about new
drugs available to treat their pets
that suffer from behavior prob-
lems.
Several new drugs have proven
to be effective in treating certain
pet behavior disorders, accord-
ing to Bonnie Beaver, a veterinary
professor and animal behavior
expert at Texas A&M University's
College of Veterinary Medicine &
Biomedical Sciences.
-- "One of the biggest problems
pets face, especially dogs, is sepa-
ration anxiety. That means the


owner is away from the dog for
a period of time and the animal
becomes very distressed," Beaver
explains.
"It tends to happen a lot more
than we had thought. The signs
may not be apparent at first, but
after other things have been ruled
out, separation anxiety is often the
underlying problem."
Veterinarians have begun
treating the condition with pre-
scribed pills, just as in humans. In
fact, Beaver says, the new drugs
are derivatives of medicines given
to people that have been adapted
for animals. One form of the new
drugs has been used to treat Par-
kinson's disease in humans.


What are the signs that your
dog needs help?
"There are several," Beaver
says. "One is destruction, when
a pet tears up things it normally
doesn't harm. Another is frequent
house soiling, and others could
be excessive vocalization, such
as loud barking, so loud that the
neighbors complain. Or excessive
drooling or licking or even pacing
back and forth can be a sign.
"Often," she adds, "these are
problems that can mean some-
thing else, not separation anxiety.
So it can be difficult at times to
diagnose
"Using drug therapy as a last
resort is not a good thing to do,"


she says.
"It takes an entire behavior
program, from history to diagno-
sis and treatment. The problem
could be a medical situation that
has nothing to do with behavior.
Often, it takes a combination of
approaches.
"The pet owner and the vet-
erinarian must work as a team to
solve the problem," she contin-
ues. "Drug therapy works in cer-
tain cases, but just popping a pill
down the dog's throat rarely pro-
vides a cure."
Pet talk is a service of the College of
Veterinary Medicine & Biomedical
Sciences at Texas A&M University.

Recognizing when a marriage needs outside help


By the American
Counseling Association
No one enters a marriage
expecting that the relationship
won't last. Yet, unfortunately,
almost 50 percent of marriages
in this country end in divorce. An
important question is whether
professional help could reduce
those numbers, especially if
called upon before problems
become too big to be solved.
Of course, it isn't always easy
for a couple to spot when prob-
lems are first starting to appear.
No matter how much two people
love and care about each other,
there will always be rough spots
and disagreements as time goes
by.


Disagreeing over paint color
for the living room walls is not
a problem requiring professional
help. Constant disagreements
over almost everything is an
entirely different situation.
A common, early sign that a
marriage is drifting toward seri-
ous trouble is when one partner
feels he or she is giving more
than he or she is receiving over an
extended period of time. It could
be a job, outside family, children,
or any of a hundred other issues
that has one person feeling he
or she is carrying the bulk of the
load. And it's a problem that can
poison a relationship unless help
is found.,
Persistent and severe dis-


agreements are another sign of
serious problems when coupled
with an inability or unwillingness
to resolve those disagreements.
While disagreements can
occur in any marriage, it's when
they're not worked out but
instead left to fester that severe
and permanent damage to the
marriage can occur.
Seeking counseling for mar-
riage problems doesn't mean
that every marriage will be saved.
There are many situations where
the couple really is better off
being apart.
But in many cases what a
counseling professional can do is
help a couple see the reality of
their situation, and can offer help


and techniques to work more
intelligently toward resolving the
problems they face.
There are a variety of places
to seek professional help. Many,
though not all, clergy are trained
in helping couples through mar-
riage problems. Within the coun-
seling profession there is a coun-
seling specialty which has special
training in relationship and mar-
riage counseling.
If you suspect that problems in
your marriage are becoming seri-
ous, seek out counseling as soon
as possible. Seeking help does
not signal the end of a marriage.
Rather, it's often the beginning of
building a stronger, healthier and
longer lasting relationship.
