Smoking cessation classes at library


Long time nurse
Harriett Rice
trained to help

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Two smok-
ing cessation classes are offered
through the Glades Health De-
partment and Riverside Glades
Medical Center.
A six week class will be held


at the public library starting Sat-
urday, Feb. 2; followed by anoth-
er class beginning March 15.
The program is lucky to have
Nurse Harriet Rice as a facilita-
tor. She has 30 years experience
as a nurse in Hendry County, and
is near completing her Physician
Assistant Certification (PA-C).
Nurse Rice mentioned that
trying to stop smoking by go-
ing "cold turkey" is difficult and
lonely. That is why the local
classes will have help from fel-


low smokers who successfully
quit, or they are in the process
of quitting. They can be some-
one to. talk to when a student is
going through a rough spot.
According to Harriett Rice,
about 60 percent of snrokers re-
ally want to quit, but have been
unable to do so. For this reason,
a step-program for smokers was
planned with online support and
nicotine replacement therapy.
After a student has competed
three weeks they are asked to


Kids' Day: Big '0" Bird Festival


INI/Nena Bolan
Angela Sachson demonstrates how to make a simple bird feeder from plastic bottles.
Ms. Sachson is with Florida Yards and Neighborhoods which encourages homeowners
to create environmentally friendly landscaping. The students are MHES sixth graders
involved in the first day of The Big 'O' Bird Festival, Jan. 25, which took place in Perry
Park.,
Sixth graders from
Moore Haven Elemen-
tary School learned
about skulls and ver-
tebrae of reptiles and
mammals. InstruLctors
from the Archbold Bio-.
logical Station in High-
lands County showed
students how to iden-
tify animals by their
skulls and vertebrae.
This event was for the
kid's day part of Big
'O' Bird Festival held
Jan. 25-27.


The station is located in
Highlands County. It has
unique populations of
plants and animals. Edu-
cation coordinator, Rick
Lavoy, presents a friendly

decide on a quiting date. Nurse
Rice will be able to aid the stu-
dent with tips, information and
guidance during this transition.
She expects that some people
will not be able to quit during
the six week class, and that is
why there is a follow up pro-
gram.
"Not everyone is going to
make it this time, but try, try
again," she said.
Harriett Rice works for Dr.
John Geake at the Riverside


Glades Medical Center in Moore
Haven. Dr. Geake is her clinical
guide in rural health care. She
was encouraged to earn a Phy-
sician Assistant Certificate, and
enrolled in a rural heatlh medi-
cine program at the University of

it was designed for people in

Ortona's Cane


Grinding


Festival, now 29


By Barbara Oehlbeck
There are those. who say
that the more birthdays the
Cane Grinding Festival has, the
better it becomes! And there's
no one who disagrees.
Make your plans now to
be there and stay until the last
event is over. It all begins Satur-
day, Feb. 2 at 10 a.m.
Everything will take place
under the beautiful oaks at
the Larry Lucky Ortona Indian
Mound Park. The entrance is
west of the Ortona Cemetery
on State Road 78. If you're
coming from the north con-
tinue on Route 27 to SR 29, go
west until you come to 78, turn
left. If you're coming from the
LaBelle area cross the bridge
going north on Route 29 un-


til you come to 78, then turn
right.
There are also those who
say there's no better barbecue
in the state of Florida than the
open pit barbecue at the Cane
Grinding Festival, and the por-
tions are more than generous!
This year the festival will fea-
ture the Bluegrass Stagecoach
Band, the Country Rhythm
Cloggers, Arts and Crafts, cane
grinding just like in the good
ole days and cane syrup mak-
ing, again just like in times
gone by. And yes, jars of cane
syrup will be available.
And the best of the best
southern cooks are baking spe-
cial cakes for the Cane Grind-
ing Cake Booth. Don't miss it!

Consider: The


honorable turkey


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the Glades County
Democrat
Precisely what is a turkey?
The clich6 answer is: It
probably depends upon who,
you talk to!
Well, in days gone by, a tur-
key was (and to some, still is) a
large game bird
of North America and
Mexico. Turkeys are related to-
pheasants, and are traditionally
associated with holiday feasts
of Thanksgiving and Christ-


mas.
However, for some time, in
this latter part of the twentieth
century, the word "turkey" has
acquired a meaning a world
away from the handsome bird
that wanders the woodlands,
adding distinctive sounds and
movement to the nature of the
forests, harming no one, nor
any creatures of the wild.
To be called a "turkey" is
ugly, even insulting, carrying

Young ideas, bright mind


A seventh grader
with a
crafty business

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
Tanner Underwood is a sev-
enth grader who decided to
take on a third vocation that
he could fit in between his aca-
demic studies and sports. He
set up for business at the Big
'0' Bird Festival right next to his
family's vendor booth.
Mr. Underwood said that
he had attended the state fair in
Tennessee, and studied a man
who was very good at crafting
skinny balloons into animals.


He figured he c6uld have fun
learning balloon twisting and
he developed a knack for it.
It was okay with his fam-
ily when he wanted to start a
balloon business, and he was
encouraged to set up next to
them when they go to shows.
He has accomplished the mod-
eling of dogs, tigers, swords,
banjos and various hats. Mr.
Underwood commented that
he is still learning the skill, and
will not charge for his art un-
til he gets better; however, he
-does accept tips.
Mr. Underwood's business
hardware consists of a large
bundle of skinny balloons, an
air pump, felt tip pens, colorful
table covering, one table and a
tip jar.


It took a while for him to feel
comfortable with balloon craft,
setting up a booth and meeting
the public. He has advice for
other kids who want to tackle
a new job or skill.
"Just keep trying and never
give up," he said.
This has been an enjoyable
time for. Tanner Underwood
because he gets to travel from
his home in Sparta, Tenn. and
visit family in Glades County.
He can see new places,
meet new people and develop
his business and communica-
tion skills. He began his third
vocation about six months ago
and would like tp continue it for
a while.

Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee Thursday, January 31, 2008


Emergency water supply



option is being considered


WEST PALM BEACH -- In the
face of persistent water shortage
conditions, the South Florida Wa-
ter Management District (SFW-
MD) is investigating the feasibility
of installing 14 new lakeside tem-
porary pumps along the southern
rim of Lake Okeechobee to assist
in meeting future water supply
needs,
The SFWMD Governing Board
approved funding for the poten-
tial $1.S million project that could
involve installing diesel powered
hydralic pumps on the lake side
otwater control structures S-351,
S-352 and S354 in Palm Beach
County.
Vfter managers are thorough-
ly examining the option, includ-
ing a cost benefit analysis and
environmental permitting review,
to determine if the proposed new
temporary pumps are the best
way to continue limited water de-
livery south of Lake Okeechobee
during the water shortage.
"Investigating all of our water
supply options is the most re-
sponsible route we can take in
the face of weather uncertainties,"
said SFWMD Governing Board
Chairman Eric Buermann. "Even
if new pumps are installed, that
will not resolve the water short-
age. Everyone must continue to
do their part by observing water
restrictions and conserving water
whenever possible."


The pumps under consider-
ation would be able to lift water
from Lake Okeechobee into the
North New River, Hillsboro and
Miami canals, even if the lake wa-
ter level drops below seven feet.
The pumps could move water at
a combined rate of 700 cubic feet
per second, or about half the ca-
pacity of the temporary canal-side
forward pumps already in use.
If natural conditions continue
to lower Lake Okeechobee's wa-
ter level, the lake- side temporary
pumps would be able to provide
a small percentage of water to
serve area supply needs. At this
time, a decision to install the
pumps would be a precaution-
ary measure in the event Lake
Okeechobee's water level drops
below 7 feet. Lake Okeechobee's
water level today is 10.12 feet,
still more than four feet below its
historical average for this time of
year.
If the 2008 rainy season pro-
vides enough water to raise Lake
Okeechobee levels, the portable
lake-side temporary pumps could
be used at other locations for
flood control.
"We hope that the weather
cooperates and that there won't
be a need for these pumps," said
SFWMD Executive Director Carol
Wehle. "But we must be prepared
to respond and deliver water if
conditions worsen."


A series of electric temporary
forward pumps installed on the
canal side of these same water
control structures in early 2007
have proven successful in main-
taining water availability, but
they will not be effective if Lake
Okeechobee's water level reach-
es an extreme low.
Water levels in the lake
have been setting new record
daily lows for more than seven
months, and they continue to re-
cede due to below-average rain-
fall. The lake reached a historic
low of 8.82 feet on July 2, 2007.
Lake Okeechobee is the source of
water for 500,000 acres of farm-
land in the Everglades Agricul-
tural Area and serves as a primary
back-up water supply to more
than five million South Floridians.
Extremely low water condi-
tions in Lake Okeechobee have
provided the District with the op-
portunity to do extensive environ-
mental restoration work that will
improve water quality and habi-
tat. Projects included removing 2
million cubic yards of muck from
3,000 acres of exposed lake bed,
which also removed 140 metric
tons of phosphorus. In addition,
the District burned 70,000 acres
and treated 10,000 acres of torpe-
do grass and planted 2,000 native
pond apple trees.

Ham operators are needed


Hendry and Glades Counties
are looking for Amateur (Ham)
Radio volunteers for emergency
communications. Amateur radio
is a vital link providing emergen-
cy communications when other
methods of communication fail.
During Hurricane Wilma, the
only communication to some of
the shelters for several hours was
by ham radio. Area ham radio
operators provided communica-
tion for the Community Emer-
gency Response Team (CERT)
training final exercise in LaBelle
on Friday, January 18.
Over the past several years,
the number of hams available
to operate the ham radio equip-
ment has declined. Several fac-
tors have contributed, but com-
puters and cell phones have
reduced interest in the hobby. A


ham radio operator is required
by the Federal Communication
Commission (FCC) to possess a
valid FCC license to operate the
equipment. The advantage to
Ham radio is that it works much
better than Citizen Band (CB's),
Family Band Radios or even Busi-
ness Radios.
The FCC, in 2006, recognized
the decreasing level of inter-
est and responded by making
the Technician License MUCH,
MUCH easier to get. A person
is no longer required to learn
Morse Code and the 35 question,
multiple-choice exam is much
easier. The best way to start the
process is to take practice exams
on-line at www.QRZ:com. See
how you do; many of the ques-
tions are just common sense. At
QUICK LINKS you can click on


PRACTICE TESTS (Technician).
Study guides are not required
but can be obtained at QRZ at
the BECOMING A HAM link and
then going to LICENSE STUDY
MATERIALS.
The written FCC exam will
be given in LaBelle at 4 p.m. on
Tuesday February 19, 2008. The
license is available to all ages.
The cost to take the test is $14.
The test will be administered at
the Hendry'County Emergency
Medical Services (EMS) Class-
room at 1000 Forestry Division
Road which is located at the in-
tersection of Cowboy Way and
Forestry Division Road.
For more information, direc-
tions or to make a reservation,
please contact Norm Dillman,

Representative Hastings encouraged

by Lake '0' dike repair work


Washington, DC -- U.S. Repre-
sentative Alcee L. Hastings (D-Mi-
ramar) recently announced that
he is encouraged by recent work
done by the Army Corps of Engi-
neers to initiate construction on a
test panel for a cutoff wall and to
increase expert reviews and con-
sultation as part of efforts to re-
pair the Herbert Hoover Dike. The
Dike, which is in desperate need
of rehabilitation, was built in the
1930s to protect those living in the
communities along the shores of
Lake Okeechobee. Representa-
tive Hastings secured almost $55
million in the Fiscal Year 2008
Omnibus Appropriations bill to
expedite repairs to the Dike.
"In order to guarantee the safe-
ty and security of my constituents
who reside near and around Lake
Okeechobee, we need to ensure
appropriate and swift rehabilita-
tion of the Dike," said Representa-
tive Hastings. "I appreciate the re-
cent progress made by the Army
Corps of Engineers to repair the
Dike. The innovative engineering
technology work on this project is
an important step forward in on-
going efforts to stabilize the Dike.
I am encouraged by the recent


advancements made on a long,
stagnant problem, and I pledge
to continue to engage our Lake
Region communities and push


the Army Corps of Engineers to
guarantee that the Dike is stabi-
lized as expeditiously and safely
as possible."

Local radio amateurs


participate in C.E.R.T. drill


By Samuel S. Thomas,
W3ALE, PIO Big Lake
Radio Club
,On Saturday, Jan. 26, the lo-
cal radio amateur community
provided emergency commu-
nications during the gradua-
tion training drill for the LaBelle
CERT (Community Emergency
Response Team) group; as they
went through a drill designed to
test preparedness in the event of
a disaster.
The drill was held at the air-
port location of the LaBelle EMT-
Fire Station and consisted of a
field team, a triage-medical team,
and a central communications-
coordination post; with volun-
teers serving as "victims" and the
newly-trained members putting
their skills in disaster help to work.
Sam Thomas,W3ALE and Walt
Weiland, KA2HUY, were the com-
munications coordinators for the


central command post; providing
information to the on-site director
for the exercise; while Norm Dill-
man, NOJCC provided communi-
cations from the field team that
did on-site first aid and rescue
operations. Jim Sparks, AA4BN
provided communications liaison
from the Triage Center,/giving up-
dates on the status of the "victims"
and arrival times of ambulances.
The communications crew also
established a link with the radio
repeaters in Fort Myers; not a part
of the drill but demonstrating the
capabilities of the local operators
and equipment to reach out to re-
gional, wider-area centers should
there have been an actual need.
Additional communications con-
tacts were demonstrated through
the repeaters around the Lake
Okeechobee area; making use
of a portable beam antenna and
battery-powered VHF transceiv-
ers. The CERT group demon-


strated a good level of proficiency
and capability in handling, on-site
disaster needs and the members
of the Big Lake Amateur Radio
Club, as well as other amateur
operators were happy to assist
them in their drill. Later in the
day, Charles Carter, AAORB and
Grace Ann Carter,
NOGAC, came out to assist in
the ongoing activities for the day;
and were appreciated for their
contribution to the preparations
that are ongoing in LaBelle, Hen-
dry County and the surrounding
areas in disaster training. The
community is working to take
a pro-active stance; preparing
ahead of time for whatever disas-
ters might strike our area. We are
grateful for those who took time
out to volunteer for training and
offer their services to our cities,
county and region. Thank you,
CERT's volunteers and a job well
done!

The Great Backyard Bird Count 2008


By Angela Sachson
Florida Yards & Neighborhoods
It's not often we get a chance
to learn something new, have a
little fun, and contribute to sci-
ence at the same time. It only
takes a few minutes. It's free.
And you don't even have to leave
home!
We are talking about the 2008
Backyard Bird Count co-spon-
sored by the national Audubon
Society and Cornell University.
Every year on President's Day
weekend, people count the num-
ber of birds who visit .their back-
yard feeders in a time period of 15
minutes or more. The observer
can then enter his or her informa-
tion at the Great Backyard Bird
Count website. The website also
provides tips on how to count,
lists of birds in your zip code, and
lots of other great information.
Why, you may ask, count
birds? And, why should I count
birds? Can't the scientists do it?
Well, first, a scientist or team
of scientists couldn't possibly col-
lect the amount of information
that many regular folks in many
locations can gather. Last year's
participants turned in 81,000


checklists. They counted over
eleven million birds of 613 differ-
ent species. All that was accom-
plished in just three days!
Scientists can learn a lot by
knowing the location of bird spe-
cies. Bird populations constantly
move and the bird count can doc-
ument the complex distribution
and movements of many species
in a very short time. Bird location
and movement may also tell us
about changes that can affect us
such as climate change.
If you participate, you make
sure the birds from your commu-
nity are well represented in the
count. It doesn't matter whether
you report the five species com-
ing to your backyard feeder or the
75 species you see during a day's
outing to a wildlife refuge.
Some of the questions we can
help answer include: How will
the timing of birds' migrations
compare with past years? How
are bird diseases, such as West
Nile virus, affecting birds in dif-
ferent regions? What kinds of dif-
ferences in bird diversity are ap-
parent in cities versus suburban,
rural, and natural areas? Are any
birds undergoing worrisome de-
clines that point to the need for


conservation attention?
Here's how
1. Visit www.birdcount.org for
easy-to-follow instructions, in-
cluding tips for identifying birds,
and to print a checklist for your
zip code.
2. Count the birds you see,
wherever you choose to count.
Write down the highest number
of individual birds you see at one
time. That way you won't count
any bird twice.
3. After at least 15 minutes
of watching in one place, report
your results online at www.bird-
count.org. (You can spend more
time observing if you prefer.)
4. You can repeat your count
at the same place on each day of
the Great Backyard Bird Count.
You can also visit other locations
and submit separate information
for those areas too.
If you do not have a bird feeder
you can supply bird feed in any
flat, open container. Even a pie
plate on a stump can catch the
eye of a snack-hungry bird. Make
sure the feeder is far from squirrel
and cat hideouts and jumping-off
places.
Read the label on the birdseed
for feeding instructions and start


feeding a few days before your
bird watch. Birds have great eye-
sight but they might not flock to
your feeder the minute you fill it!
Or, Try This
On Saturday, Feb. 16, come to
the Okeechobee County Exten-
sion Office. We will have feeders
set up in the side yard, plenty of
checklists and pencils, and bird
identification information. We
can count together or you can
count on your own. The feeders
will be up from 9a.m. until 1 p.m.
See you there!
For more information about
the Great Backyard Bird Count,
visit your county extension of-
fice or the following sites., www.
birdcount.org, www.birds.cor-
nell.edu, www.adubon.org.
If you need additional infor-
mation on the bird count, please

stop by our office at 458 Hwy 98
North in Okeechobee, and visit
our Okeechobee County Master
Gardeners from I to 3 p.m., on
Tuesday afternoons.

Variety adds spice and nutrition


It's ironic that in this day
and age, when a wide variety
of fruits and vegetables is ready
available at the nearest super-
market, that some people ac-
tually have less variety in their
diet than the average American
did when they relied on locally
grown produce.
Before modern transporta-
tion made it possible to ship
tomatoes from Florida to Michi-
gan in the middle of the winter,
and before modern food pack-
aging made it possible to buy
frozen strawberries year round,
people simply ate what was
available. That meant that their
diets changed with the seasons.
Some foods were available in
the spring, others in the sum-
mer, and other foods were avail-
able in the autumn.
When it comes to healthy,
eating, variety is good for you.
Eating a variety of foods usually
means consuming a variety of
nutrients. This used to happen
from necessity. People ate what
was available and were glad to


A
Healthier
Life


with Katrina Elsken I

have it. But with the way food is
produced and marketed today,
it is possible to eat exactly the
same foods every day. And un-
fortunately, some people es-
pecially small children want to
do just that.
A diet that includes only two
vegetables those same two
vegetables every day may not
be balanced. Unless the two veg-
etables are broccoli and sweet
potatoes, some vitamins may be
missing from that diet.
How do you get more va-
riety in the diet?
*Experiment: Twice a month,
buy a fruit or vegetable your
family has never tried before.
You might surprise yourself and


fall in love with pomegranates
or spaghetti squash.
Parents can set a good
example by eating a variety of
foods. Encourage every mem-
ber of the family to eat at least
one spoonful of the new food.
A little creativity in food
preparation can "sneak" extra
vegetables into foods that are
family favorites. For example,
you can mince (chop up into
verysmall pieces) yellowsquash,
eggplant and green peppers and
add to spaghetti sauce. The to-
mato sauce color and spaghetti
spices can effectively disguise
the additional vegetables.
If you tried a canned veg-
etable and didn't like it, try the
fresh version. There is a big dif-
ference between the flavor and
texture of canned and fresh veg-
etables.
Try juices and juice blends,
as a way to include a bigger va-
riety of fruits and vegetables in
your family's diet.
A few weeks ago, I wrote a
column about comfort foods"
and invited readers to share their


favorite recipes. An anonymous
reader brought in this recipe.
Garbanzo Bean Soup
2 medium onions
4 cups cubed uncooked ham
Put onions and ham in large
pot. Cover with water and cook
on medium heat for 35 min-
utes.
Add the following:
3 cups diced potatoes
3 cans garbanzo beans (un-
drained)
3 medium cans (or two large)
diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon black pepper
2 tablespoons salt (or to
taste)
Cook on medium heat until
it boils. Reduce heat to simmer.
Simmer for 90 minutes. Stir fre-
quently and do not let soup stick
to pot.
Before making any change in
your diet or exercise program,
consult your doctor. This is es-
pecially important if you are on
any prescription drugs. Some
drugs interact badly with foods
that would otherwise be consid-
ered "healthy."


Health Dept. promotes child nutrition


TALLAHASSEE -- The Florida
Department of Health (DOH)
joins the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture (USDA) in
promoting the Child Care Food
Program, a federally funded
USDA program that reimburses
child care providers for serving
nutritious meals and snacks to
children.
"The Child Care Food Pro-
gram encourages children to
build healthy habits for life,"
said Philip E. Reeves, M.P.H.,
Bureau Chief of Child Nutrition
Programs. "Parents seeking
child care in Florida are encour-
aged to enroll their children in
facilities that participate in this
program."


DOH administers the Child
Care Food Program through
four types of child care-related
settings:
Child care centers: In a non-
pricing child care center, meals
will be available at no separate

IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT YOUR DRINKING WATER
THE LAKEPORT WATER ASSOCIATION WATER TREATMENT SYSTEM HAS A
LEVEL OF TOTAL TRIHALOMETHANES WHICH EXCEEDS STANDARDS
SITUATION
The Department of Environmental Protection requires disinfection of drinking water
to inactivate possible pathogens, because the health benefits of disinfection far
outweigh its' risks. However, when used in the treatment of drinking water, some
disinfectants combine with organic and inorganic matter present In the water to
form chemicals called disinfection byproducts (DBP's). A number of DBP's such
as Total Trihalomethanes (TTHM's) and Haloacetic Acids (HAA5's) may be a
health concern at certain levels of exposure.
The laboratory analysis results for the TTHM sample collected in January 2008, De-
cember 2007, and April 2007, July 2007, now indicate a running annual average
TTHM concentration of 96.7 micrograms per liter (ug/L). Therefore, The Depart-
ment has determined that this water system has generated a Maximum Contami-
nant Level (MCL) violation for TTHM's, since Table 3 of Rule 62-550, Florida
Administrative Code(FA.C.),ideptifiesthe MCLforTTTHM's as80 (ug/L).
HEALTH EFFECTS
Some people who drink water containing Trihalomethanes in excess of the Maxi-
mum Contaminant Level (MCL) over many years may experience problems with
their liver, kidneys, or central nervous system, and may have an increased chance
of getting cancer.
WHAT SHOULD CUSTOMERS DO?
This is not an immediate risk, however, until the problem Is corrected, any custom-
ers who are concerned about their exposure to TTHM's may wish to us alternative
sources of water for ingestion, such as commercial bottled water, or water treat-
ed by an appropriate home water treatment device. Appropriate home water treat-
ment devices are those certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) for
reducing TTHM's in drinking water.
WHAT IS BEING DONE?
The problem will be corrected when the Seminole Tribe builds their new water treat-
ment plant on the Brighton Reservation. Construction is expected to be completed
in early 2008.
For more information, please contact Jeff Ussery at (863) 946-1300, or write to:
Lakeport Water Association, Inc., 10055 Red Barn Road, Moore Haven, FL

Compliance/Enforcement Section at (239) 332-6975. Please share this informa-
tion with all the other people who drink this water, especially those who may not
have received this notice directly (for example those in apartments, nursing home,
school and businesses.

Enjoying the game
A group of Clewiston High School students were thoroughly enjoying the
Jan. 23 contest between the Clewiston Tigers and Pahokee Blue Devils
girls' basketball teams. It was a mixed feeling for the students as they
watched their girls' team lose, 70-31. But after the game, all of them did get
to spend some quality time with the players from both teams, particularly

What to do with all those birthdays


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church
I turn 50 this week. All my
life I've been taught to respect
my elders. Now I am one. I'm
reminded of what one friend
shared with me, "You know you
are getting older when you try
to straighten out the wrinkles
in your socks only to find you
aren't wearing any."
Growing older. Aging. We
can laugh about it, make jokes
about it, and groan about it, but
we can't stop it.
So, what do we do with birth-
days? As much as we might like
to avoid them, we can't. So why
not celebrate them?
In an interview with a Lon-
don newspaper, actor Christo-
pher Walken revealed that he
likes to bring a little fun to a
movie set by pretending that it's
his birthday. In the morning, as
the makeup crew is preparing
him for the shoot, he will men-
tion off-handedly that today is
his birthday, but he swears them
to secrecy. In a. matter of hours,


the cast and crew of the movie
throw together a big birthday
party for him. Everyone has a
great time, and no one suspects
that Mr. Walken planned the
whole thing just to inject a little
fun in his colleagues' day.
What a great idea! Who
doesn't like a party -- even if it's
for no reason at all. As a matter
of fact, people have come up
with a number of creative ways
to celebrate and have a good
time.
In Monte Rio, Calif., they
hold a yearly festival in honor
of the spring invasion of the ba-
nana slug. In Pasadena, Calif.
people hold a yearly Doo Dah
Parade, which always includes
a garbage can drum corps. The
people of Myerstown, Pennsyl-
vania hold a celebration every
Oct. 24, in honor of Bald Head
Day. Backwards Day, in which
people wear their clothes back-
ward and walk backward, is a
big celebration in Fort Wayne,
Ind. And around Lake 0 we cel-
ebrate Swamp Cabbage, White


and Brown Sugar, Sour Oranges,
Black Gold, and more!
We never lose our taste for
fun. It's life-affirming. And there
are endless possibilities for en-
joyment in almost any facet of
life. Except, perhaps in some of
our worship of God. Robert Lou-
is Stevenson once entered in his
diary, as if he were recording an
extraordinary phenomenon, "I
have been to Church today, and
am not depressed." Ask people
to describe the average church
service, and the words joy or
fun or party probably would not
be amongst their descriptions.
That's a shame when we are
celebrating the greatest joy on
earth!
Someone once shared with
me an article, "101 Things to Do
During a Dull Sermon." I never
saw him act any of these out, so I
guess my sermons didn't rate on
the dull scale, but I was amused
at some of the suggestions:
Pass a note to the organist
asking whether he/she plays re-
quests.


See if a yawn really is conta-
gious.
Slap your neighbor. See if they
turn the other cheek. If not, raise
your hand and tell the preacher.
Listen for your pastor to use
a word beginning with 'A,' then
'B,' and so on through the alpha-
bet.
Using church bulletins, de-
sign, test and modify a collection
of paper airplanes.
Start from the back of the
church and try to crawl all the
way to the front, under the pews,
without being noticed.
Bring a live squirrel in a shoe
box and leave it near a curious
child.
You know, we probably
wouldn't find these so amus-
ing, except we can relate to
them. Many times, people hear
the word "church," and they
think boring, obligation, or duty.
Somehow, we've forgotten the
message of Psalm 16, that in
God's presence there is not just
joy, but fullness of joy.


Doing the 'right' thing: Is there an exception to the rules?


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
There is a saying that "the ex-
ception proves the rule." Actu-
ally, the saying is a very old one
and comes from the time when
"prove" meant "test." What is
meant is that if a rule is strong,
it can be tested to see if it holds
by the exceptions to it. IF there
are too many exceptions, there
is no rule at all. I remember,
hearing about a man learning
to speak English and wanted to
compliment someone that he
had just met. He told him, "It's
nice to meet you. I've heard that
you're quite a wise guy!" That's
different than saying that he had
heard about "your being wise."
Or "You're known for your wis-
dom."
Putting "wise" and "guy"
together changed what both
words meant. When I was learn-
ing to live in another language,
there was a restaurant with daily
specials. One- .item on the list of
items offered on the daily offer-
ing was something I didn't par-,
ii4,rly1ike. I wantedto ask the'.
= waitress, "Is this a fixed menu?"
and instead asked her, "Is this
fixed price?" She told me that


if I didn't like the price, I could
speak to the manager. Realiz-
ing my mistake, I told her the
problem was my problem and
started over again.
Sometimes, we break the
rules of etiquette and it is harm-
less, just amusing or embarrass-
ing. Sometimes it is more seri-
ous. The Lord encountered a
man who was sick with dropsy
on Sabbath day while dining
at the house of a local ruler, a
Pharisee (Luke 14:1). There is a
long respected tradition about
working on a Sunday; a tradi-
tion that was regarded as law in
the Lord's day and is respected
in many places even today. "Re-
member the Sabbath day, to
keep it holy (Exodus 20:87)"
is clear; "the seventh day is a
Sabbath to the Lord your God,
in it you shall not do any work
(v.10)." The problem is that
healing is work. Is this an ex-
ception to God's law? Apparent-
ly, Jesus thought so. It was He,
Himself who raised the question
about the lawfulness of healing,
or the exception. The man was
hJialed and Jes s;esue -
tion about the root of what was
going on; asking them which
of them who had an animal


.fall into a ditch on the Sabbath
wouldn't pull it out? His critics
could not reply; there was the
law to be respected, but there
was an exception.
Recently, two young persons
ran away and were found on
a beach in Louisiana after the
country searched for them for
some time. One was 13, the
other 15 and they said they were
"in love" and wanted their "free-.
dom." Apparently, they regard-
ed themselves as exceptions to
rules but I could help but won-
der if "love" justified the difficul-
ties caused. It is not too uncom-
mon to hear about persons who
regard themselves as exceptions
to the traditions, conventions or
even the laws of our society; and
go on to do as they please.
There have been times when
people have shared with me
their thoughts or plans to do
something drastic. I recall the
parable of the healing of the
man with dropsy; about how
a higher, unselfish, respecting
of persons principle was in-
volved. I didn't hear that in the
news report about the young.
runaways. I don't always hear
it when someone talks about
doing something ordinarily for-


bidden and wants to justify the
action in their own eyes as an
"exception." Healing someone
who is sick involves dedication
to humanity, love and caring
spirit. That's at the heart of the
gospel; that's what Jesus came
to teach.
When our soldiers return,
when people consider breaking
deep relationships, when others
are caused to consider "taking
matters into their own hands,"
when we're telling others about,
"the rules are the rules!" and
when we're perplexed about
what to do; Jesus had some-
thing to say and do about it all:
Check it out with someone that
loves and believes in Him before
acting and then pray; then care
about all who are involved, lov-
ing others and God too.

Lakeport Church celebrates 60 years


GLADES COUNTY Sunday,
Feb. 3, is Heritage Day at Lake-
port Church of Christ/Christian
Church. There will be a celebra-
tion of 60 years since the church
received her charter. Anyone
who has ever been a part of the
church and any guests are in-
vited to be our guests at the day-
i long celebration. There will be
services at 8 a.m., Bible School
at 9:30 'a.m. and a second ser-
vice at 10:30 a.m. These will be
followed by a covered dish din-
ner at 11:45 a.m. and a special
Heritage program at 1 pm.
The church has had a long
history since a small group start-
ed what would soon become
Lakeport Church of Christ/Chris-
tian Church.
The church began as a Sun-
day School Class in the home
of William Sherman and Laura
"' Click in 1928. The class was
taught by Will and assisted by
his brothers John and Herbert
Click. After Will's death Laura's
home burned and the church
moved to the old school in
Lakeport located at the corner
of Red Barn Road and Old Lake-


port Road. On Feb. 9, 1947 they
met at the school house to or-
ganize the Church of Christ at
Lakeport. They received a char-
ter from the State of Florida on
June 30, 1947. When the school
building was moved to Moore
Haven to be used as the Band
room, the church met at the
Presbyterian meeting house at
Big Bear Beach in Lakeport until
their building was constructed
on land donated by Herbert
Click. The church has touched
many lives throughout the area
and abroad.
Everyone is invited to be a
part of our Heritage Day. If you
can possibly attend we would
be delighted. If you can not be
here- and would like to' send us
your memories, we would ap-
preciate receiving them. They
can be emailed to us. You can
send them to carlpascha@aol.
com or to Jo Randolph at Geo-

Please, don't feed the pelicans


GAINESVILLE -- At virtually
every seaport mankind has ever
built, you're sure to see a peli-
can at some time or another. The
birds roost on every continent ex-
cept Antarctica. Their scythe-like
beaks and snaking necks have
adorned human art dating back
thousands of years.
So, what's the harm in a fish-
erman tossing a bit of fish to
the nearby pelican kind enough
to keep him company? What's
a scrap of flounder between
friends?
"You- may think you're be-
ing nice, but you could be set-
ting them up for a really painful
death," said Bryan Fluech, a.Col-
lier County Sea Grant extension
agent with the University of Flori-
da's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences.
Each year, hundreds of pelicans
along Florida's coastline meet a
grisly end because of human ac-
tivity. As part of a statewide IFAS
educational program, including a
new video titled "Pelican's Point
of View," Mr. Fluech explains the
do's and don'ts of interacting with
pelicans.
The video was produced in


conjunction with the nonprofit
organization Fish Florida.
"Maybe the scariest run-in you
can have with a pelican is if it
grabs your lure," Mr. Fluech said.
"On one end of the line, there'll be
a pelican that's confused because
this weird fish came with a hook
that's now stuck in its beak. On
the other end of the line there'll
be a fisherman who's probably
even more panicked."
Mr. Fluech said if an angler
does catch a pelican, he should
never cut the line.
"Your first instinct might be to
cut the line if you get a pelican
hooked,", he said. "But leaving
that hook in there could be really
harmful to the bird."
The line can tangle around
the bird or get caught up in man-
groves where the bird roosts.
If possible, the fisherman
should try to gently wrangle the
bird into his grasp. He should
then grab the pelican loosely by
the beak before attempting to
hold the bird like a football, with
its wings pressed against its body.
A towel over the bird's head
will calm it and make it easier to
handle. The fisherman should try


to remove the hook by pushing
it through the skin until the barb
is visible. Snip the barb with wire
cutters and then back the hook
out before releasing the bird.
Birds that have swallowed -a
hook or are seriously hurt should
be taken to the nearest rehabilita-
tion facility.
Some pelicans apparently
don't learn from mistakes and
have so many piercings they re-
semble punk rockers, Mr. Fluech
said.
The greater evil of feeding peli-
cans is that they lose their fear of
humans. A pelican with a natural
fear probably won't steal lures or
engage in other dangerous be-
haviors, he said.
But "people-friendly" pelicans
will often approach humans in
an aggressive way that often ends
with the bird being hurt. Or they
crowd into small areas where
their droppings can pose a health
risk.
Besides helping the birds lose
their fear, feeding the pelicans
can hurt them. Scraps from fish
large enough for fishermen to le-
gally keep are almost always too
big for pelicans to eat.

Bird art
Alzora Dunkley is a student in Ms. Ford's class at Moore Haven Elementary School. She
is standing by her drawing of a woodpecker, which was part of a contest for the Big '0'
Bird Festival held Jan. 25-27 in Moore Haven. The Glades County event has bird sighting
tours, arts and crafts vendors, food, wildlife organization information, children's art con-
test, photographs, and animal rescue presenters.


If a fisherman tosses a pelican
scraps after cleaning a legal fish-
or even just tosses them into the
water where they can be easily
scooped up-the big bones can
tear the pelican's pouch as it tries
to' swallow. Instead, fishermen
should see if their dock or fishing
site has disposal tubes, vertical
PVC pipes that extend below the
water's surface too deep for peli-
cans to reach. If none exist, scraps
should go into a trash can.
Anglers should also be sure
to properly dispose of used fish-
ing line. Each year, the Audubon
Society and other groups remove
thousands of pounds of fish-
ing line from Florida's coastline.
As they do, they often find birds
who strangled or starved after be-
ing tangled in the line, said Ann
Hodgson of the Audubon Florida
Coastal Islands Sanctuaries.
The new video is available via
the IFAS Collier County Exten-
sion Web site at http://collier.ifas.

Those interested in a hardcopy
DVD of the video should contact
Mr. Fluech via email at Fluech@

a vulgar, uncouth connation.
Yet, ask most anyone who has
incorporated the use of the word
to describe a person, and that
person stumbles and stutters
around without a clue as to what
'he or she is trying to say. There
are a few other words that have
surfaced in recent years that are
equally inappropriate, which is
another story.
Tom Gaskins sheds a little light
Son the subject: "I believe that this
"new" use of the word turkey, ba-
sically meaning that the turkey is
not smart, even dumb, came not
from the wild bird but from the
tame turkey which has known
nothing but living in captivity in a
pen for the entire duration of his
life. I'm told that a tame turkey
will look up in a blinding rain and
drown himself! Which may or
may not be a true story. But don't
tell me that a turkey living in the
wild is not smart and wary! I
know better. I can assure you that
from personal experience an old


class call Harriett Rice at (863)
946-1000. A second class begins
March 15.
To receive nicotine patches, a
form must be filled out. Another
smoking cessation class will be
offered later in May. The program
is sponsored by the American'
Cancer Society.
Staff writer Nena Bolan can be
reached at nenabolan@yahoo.con(


and Sheldon Barraquillo, whco
have just built a new home irn
River Oaks at Ortona.
The Barraquillos are from InZ
diana, but call Ortona "home."
They are both avid motorcyclists
and doing whatever needs doing
in Ortona. One long-time Ortoni'
an said, "We could not exist with-
out them. Shelton Barraquillo is
the first to tackle a community
job and the last one to leave it.'!
A retired architect, he designed
the fire department building and
did not leave the job until it was
done." Naturally, he is an active
member of the Ortona Volun-
teers.
Plenty of easy parking is avail-
able at the entrance.
Remember to bring a chair
and at least one friend and enjoy
the day at the Ortona Cane Grind-
ing Festival.


wild turkey gobbler will outsmart
you in a heartbeat! But that other
one that's been raised behind 4
fence all his life, well 'they' sa
that pen-raised turkey just "ain)
too smart! In other words, liko
dumb as a box of rocks."
For those who don't know just
who Tom Gaskins, he's the fellow
who's famous far and wide for
the classic Gaskins Turkey Call. ?
Jokingly, he says, "I have th4
good fortune to have been raised
on Fisheating Creek by an old
mother hen. And that's reason
enough to have more than a little
knowledge of turkeys!"
Although Tom Gaskins hab
made turkey calls for years fo^
hunters to use in calling, up tur-
keys, he agrees that the swamps
and flatlands, the prairies and
woodlands of the region would
never be the same without roving
flocks of wild turkeys.
I "I'm thrilled that 'in the last
couple years, bird watchers,
Audubon members and photog-
raphers are purchasing turkey
calls not for hunting purposes
but for calling turkeys to photo-
graph!"
