Tommy Hare is MHES Teacher of the Year


Well rounded experi-
ence brought to the
classroom

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -- Tommy
Hare brings a well-rounded back-
ground to the teaching profession.
The '87 graduate of MHHS was a
salesman and a rodeo bull rider
for a while.
He recalled, enjoying the work
he did with young people when
he was coaching baseball, so he
decided to try teaching kids. He
is in his fifth year of teaching at
Moore Haven Elementary School.
Mr. Hare teaches sixth grade


math, and is the assistant coach
for high school baseball. He was
asked about teaching mathemat-
ics, since it can prove challenging
for some students.
"I teach math a lot like I coach
sports, which gets kids to real-
ize that repetition is worth it," he
said.
Tommy Hare went on to men-
tion that MHES sixth graders have
been above average in FCAT math
scores for the last three years. He
has thought about pursuing a
masters degree for administra-
tion, but for now he is very satis-
fied in the classroom.
His wife, Lesle Hare, is also a
teacher with the school district.
They met in Texas when he was
traveling as a rodeo bull rider.


Mr. Hare is very active now
that baseball practice has begun
every weekday afternoon. The
first game is just around the cor-
ner.
There are many teachers in
Florida who have acquired an al-
ternative certificate for teaching,
which is designed for those who
began in other fields of work, but
now wish to crossover into teach-
ing.
Mr. Hare did this, and it en-
abled him to bring his other life
experiences into the classroom.
"He was meant to be a teach-
er," said Jim Brickel, his princi-
pal.

Courthouse


renovation progress


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY-The sec-
ond phase of the courthouse
renovation was introduced,
and a new county agricultural
extension agent was appointed
at the Glades County Commis-
sion meeting on Jan. 28. The
Glades County community traf-
fic safety team also had a video
presentation.
The first phase of court-
house renovation began with
repairs to the roofs of the main
building, the annex and the jail.
Wright Construction provided
the roof repair, and with the as-
sistance of CRA Architects, the
second phase is projected to
begin in early February.
The most notable work will


be the removal and replace-
ment of the cornice roof, frieze
and some major windows.
Other work will include re-
placement of exterior lights,
and repair or replace exterior
doors and columns. The cost is
near $1 million, which will be
paid by FEMA, insurance and
county courthouse funds.
The county commissioners
appointed Courtney B. Davis as
the new agricultural extension
agent for Glades County. Ms.
Davis has had experience with
planning and implementing 4-
H summer camps, projects and
contests. Her college degree
from the University of Florida is
in agricultural communication.

School board honors Decker


Bettie Decker:
High School
para-professional
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat

MOORE HAVEN -- When
Bettie Decker began working
at Moore Haven Junior-Senior
High School more than a year
ago, she did not realize she
would be known as 'the bag
lady.'
The nickname, is a good
thing, because the bag she
carries contains everything a
student will need to get school-


work done, according to Ms.
Decker.
This canvas bag holds note-
book paper, pens, pencils and
other supplies. She mentioned
that the fully loaded bag guar-
antees there are no excuses for
not being ready to work.
"I want them to think for
themselves first, and then help
them find the answers," said
Ms. Decker.
Ms. Decker has been chosen
Glades County School District's
school related employee of the
year; after she was recognized
as Moore Haven Junior-Senior
High School's school related
employee of the year.
Bettie Decker lived in Penn-


sylvania before she moved
to Moore Haven in 2000. Her
background as a mom, school
volunteer and substitute teach-
er prepared her for the para-
professional job she does now
in intensive reading classes. Ms.
Decker helps teach and man-
age students, or aids teachers
in any capacity when the need
arises.
Her workday begins right
before 7:30 a.m. and ends at 3
p.m. She works with secondary
grades on the middle school
and high school levels, and she
travels to each class from one
end of the campus to the other

U.S. Sugar honors annual employee award winners


CLEWISTON U.S. Sugar held
its 2007 Annual Awards ceremo-
nies on Jan. 22 with a celebratory
luncheon hosted by the senior
management team at the Clew-
iston Country Club. The annual
awards were presented to a group
of employees who have shown ex-
emplary efforts, contributions and
innovative ideas.
"Our annual employee awards
program honors and rewards em-
ployees for extraordinary contribu-
tions through their efforts in com-
munication, innovation, excellence
and respect," said Ann Marie Pilling,
Human Resource Manager.
The highest honor, the Presi-
dent's Award, was presented to
Mike Irey and Pearl Mai (Technical
Operations) and to Derek Du Plooy
(Sugar Manufacturing). This top
award is presented to an employee
who has demonstrated company
values and a professional approach
to performance excellence recog-
nized throughout the Company.
This is the first time there have been
three recipients of the President's
Award.
The requirements for this award
are: live the values and show un-
questionable character, show
exemplary contributions and ef-
forts on a special project or major
accomplishment, be recognized
as an individual who is an ideal
co-worker, model superior leader-
ship skills and ability, demonstrate
a willingness to "go above and be-
yond" their job to assist others.
In earning the President's
Award, these employees each re-
ceived a US Sugar MasterCard val-
ued at $2,500 and a personalized
crystal statue.
Mike Irey and Pearl Mai received
the award in recognition of their ef-
forts in establishing the laboratory
analytical program and conduct-
ing testing for citrus greening dis-
ease, both internally for Southern
Gardens Citrus and externally for
independent growers' samples. In
its first full year of operations, the
lab processed 33,628 samples. To
put this in perspective, the lab run
by the state ran approximately 8000
tests over a two-year period with a
larger staff. Both Southern Gardens
and the citrus industry at large have
benefited from these efforts.


The other Presidents Award re-
cipient was Derek Du Plooy who
was honored for his work in es-
tablishing and managing the engi-
neering team responsible for the
2006 and 2007 phases of the Break-
through Project. In this effort, Du
Plooy welded together a disparate
group of engineering professionals
and led them to successfully engi-
neer the majority of the new Clew-
iston facility. His strategic planning
efforts enabled the new facility to
start up on time and seamlessly
transfer operation to the new plant.
He also facilitated the Operational
Excellence initiative in Sugar Manu-
facturing and developed a new for-
mat for annual budgeting.
A number of additional annual
awards were granted focusing on
teamwork, process improvement,
safety, change, leadership and
community service. Each of these
Annual Award recipients receives
a generous US Sugar MasterCard
valued at between $500 and $1,000
plus a personalized crystal statue.
The Excellence in Team Play-
ing Award was earned by Jennifer
Bain from IT. This award has been
designed to recognize an employee
who: promotes the recognition of
teamwork, recognizes the unique
contributions of a team that has
demonstrated excellence and in-
novation, rewards superior ability
to work with employees.
Mrs. Bain managed the IT Help
Desk and provided administra-
tive support for IT and the SAP
project as well as the agriculture
department. She was responsible
for transferring 125 cell phones to
Nextel hybrids in a three-week pe-
riod, providing excellent customer
service to those involved in the
switch-over.
Bob Cox (IT) received the Excel-
lence in Continuous Work Process
Improvement Award.Mr. Cox de-
veloped an internal, custom-built
program for the Railroad to moni-
tor the railroad cane car fleet. This
replaced a vendor-supplied pro-
gram that was costly and difficult to
use. The RAILS program Cox devel-
oped uses "real time" information
is extremely user friendly and saved
the company nearly $200,000 in an-
nual costs.
The Excellence in Continuous
Work Process Improvement Award


recognizes an employee whose ac-
tions and ideas have resulted in sig-
nificant cost savings for US Sugar
by: directly increasing efficiency or
effectiveness, conserving time, sup-
plies or equipment, directly contrib-
uting to the increase in productivity,
decreased cost or better service to
customers/employees.
The Excellence in Safety Award

(Sugar Manufacturing) and Mau-
reen Cheston (Southern Gardens
Citrus) which recognizes an em-
ployee or team who have demon-
strated outstanding efforts to pre-
vent accidents, injuries and damage
to property.
Mr. Mammen was recognized
for his efforts in upgrading the fire
protection system at the Clewiston
Sugar Manufacturing facilities. Mr.
Mammen took over maintenance
responsibility for the system in July
2006 and systematically worked
through the entire system, repairing
and replacing equipment as need-
ed. He implemented an intensive
inspection program to monitor and
perform needed repairs. Mainly as
a result of the work he carried out,
FM Global presented Sugar Manu-
facturing with their prestigious
"Highly Protected Risk" award for
the facility's achievement and on-
going commitment to property loss
prevention.
Mrs. Cheston developed and
implemented safety training for
citrus processing plant employees
and revitalized the Southern Gar-
dens Emergency Response Team
by merging the First Responder and
HazMat teams into one highly func-
tional team for all purposes. She
also developed additional training
modules in both English and Span-
ish and delivered this training to
more than 150 employees during
the 2006-07 season.
The Excellence in ChangeAward
was presented to the Sugarcane Op-
erations Reliability Team for their ef-
forts in the process design phase of
the Reliability Excellence initiative.
This included analysis of current
processes utilized, review of best
practice or benchmark processes,

CLEWISTON The South
Florida Operations Office of the
U.S. Army Corps of Engineers,
Jacksonville, has issue a notice to
navigation interests on Route 1 of
the Okeechobee Waterway, which
crosses Lake Okeechobee.
Due to drought conditions,
the lake level today is 10.07 feet.
The depth of Route 1, which cuts
roughly across the center of the
lake, is 4.01 feet. The Corps advises
boaters that if they transit Route 1,
they are doing so at their own risk
and should observe the following:
A. Available depth can be tem-


porarily reduced by winds.
B. Extra precautions may need
to be taken due to prevailing
weather conditions at any given
moment.
C. Boaters should be aware that
depths could drop at any time.
Route 2 (the Rim Canal) of
the Lake Okeechobee Waterway
is now closed due to the shallow
channel depth.
Landowners are now experi-
encing pump cavitations localized
to an area two miles west and
one mile east of the bridge, which
crosses the c-44 canal at 710 just


south of Indiantown Boaters are
asked to reduce wakes in area.
Restricted depths are now oc-
curring along Route 1 at the Route
2 split just west of the Port Mayaca
Lock and the Clewiston Channel

Once-a- week watering sufficient for healthy lawn


WEST PALM BEACH South
Florida landscapes are accus-
tomed to having less water during
the dry season and can remain
healthy even flourish with
one-day-a-week watering in win-
ter months. New installations will
need additional water for only a
few weeks, while their roots sys-
tems become established.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) is re-
minding residents that under the
new one-day-a-week irrigation
restrictions, additional watering
days and times have been allocat-
ed for the establishment of new
lawns and landscapes. A flexible
schedule allows up to 60 days of
additional watering for new in-
stallations, ensuring an adequate
establishment period for the vast
majority of common plant spe-
cies.
Residents with fewer than five


irrigated acres can water installa-
tions that have been in place 30
days or less between the hours of
2 a.m. and 8 a.m. on any day ex-
cept Friday. New installations may
be watered between the hours of
2 a.m. and 8 a.m. on Monday,
Wednesday, Thursday, and Sat-
urday on days 31-60 after instal-
lation. Residents with more than
five irrigated acres have extended
watering hours between mid-
night and 8 a.m. based on the
same schedule. Residents are en-
couraged to keep a dated receipt
of purchase or other documen-
tation should they be required
to show proof of the installation
date.
"It is an unfortunate public
perception that now is not a good
time to buy plants," said SFWMD
Governing Board Chairman Eric
Buermann. "The District's water
shortage order provides sufficient


time and flexibility for new instal-
lations to be properly established,
so residents should not be dis-
couraged from buying new plants
or installing new lawns and land-
scapes. In fact, a number of na-
tive and drought-tolerant species
could be great additions to one's
garden at this time of year."
While voluntary conservation
is encouraged, low-volume irri-
gation systems including drip,
bubble and micro-jet systems that
apply water directly to plant root
zones and do not produce runoff
- save water and may be used at
any time. Watering cans also are
considered low-volume and may
be used anytime. Hand-watering
with one hose fitted with an au-
tomatic shut-off nozzle is allowed
for 10 minutes per day for land-
scape stress relief and to prevent
plant die-off.
Residents also are encouraged


to use proper landscaping and ir-
rigation techniques that can help
use water more efficiently. Shade-
loving shrubs should be planted
under trees, for example, and a
three-inch layer of mulch on all
plant beds can retain moisture for
extended periods. Lawnmower
blades should be kept sharp and
raised to four inches, if possible.
"If we use water wisely, our
residential landscapes can still
look green and healthy even
during once-a-week irrigation re-
strictions," added Carol Ann We-
hie, executive director of the SF-
WMD. "With seasonal rainfall to
help, a sixty-day watering-in pe-
riod should be more than enough
to allow most new installations to
be properly established. We also
encourage the installation of low-
volume irrigation systems, which
can be used anytime and are ideal
for water-loving plants.".
For information on watering


days and times, as well as restric-
tions on specific use classes, visit
www.sfwmd.gov/conserve. For
additional information on the wa-
ter shortage or water conservation,
call the SFWMD's toll-free Water


Conservation Hotline at 1-(800)
662-8876 or contact a regional
SFWMD service center. Helpful

ing tips also are available at www.

Caterpillars to eat invasive plants


WEST PALM BEACH Moth cat-
erpillars with big appetites are the
newest weapon in the biological
battle against a destructive, invasive
plant in South Florida.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District (SFWMD) in
partnership with the USDA Agricul-
tural Research Service is releasing
a thousand Neomusotima cons-
purcatalis moths at Jonathan Dick-
inson State Park in Martin County.
The offspring of this specialized
moth (caterpillars) are expected to
chew through dense stands of Old
World climbing fern (Lygodium
microphyllum) that are threatening
native plant species.
"We are pleased that this multi-
agency effort to combat invasive
species is taking place at one of our
161 state parks," said Michael Sole,
Secretary of the Florida Department
of Environmental Protection. "The
project, to release the moths, is an-


other example of how the state is
seeking innovative solutions to the
challenge of restoring the South
Florida ecosystem."
Following five years of study and
quarantine at the USDA Agricultur-
al Research Service laboratory in
Davie, the Neomusotima conspur-
catalis moths are being released
into the wilds of South Florida for
the first time. After release at the
park, they will be monitored to de-
termine whether they lay eggs and
develop self-sustaining colonies.
Research has shown that the
caterpillars feed on the invasive Old
World climbing fern but that they
cannot survive in climates where
they could threaten native North
American climbing ferns in the U.S.
The Neomusotima conspurcatalis
moths are native to Australia and
Asia, and were first collected by the
USDA in 1997.
In the last five years, the South


Florida Water Management District
has invested $825,000 in ongoing
studies of biological controls for
climbing fern at the USDA Agricul-
tural Research Service laboratory.
Several other promising insects are
being tested for their ability to target
Old World climbing fern and may
be available for release in the next
few years.
"Biological controls are a pow-
erful tool that we can use to restore
the environment," said SFWMD
Governing Board member Melissa
Meeker. "Naturally spreading in-
sects, like this moth species, can be
used to reach the most inaccessible
areas, reduce the spread of harmful,
invasive plants and restore nature's
balance to the greater Everglades."
The climbing fern is spreading
quickly through Florida's natural
areas, threatening the Florida Ev-
erglades. The fern competes with


native plants for soil and light, often
carpeting large swaths of native
vegetation with dense, green vines
and leaves. It is especially destruc-
tive because the climbing fern in-
vades remote wilderness areas that
are difficult to access or manage
with traditional controls.
In 2007 alone, the District spent
$1.6 million on chemical controls
of climbing fern. Biological con-
trols, such as the Neomusotima
conspurcatalis moth caterpillar, can
help reduce the dependence on
chemicals and manual removal.
The District spends more than
$20 million annually in invasive
species control over a 16-county
area, including 600,000 acres of
public waters, 1 million acres of
Everglades, 2,000 miles of canals,
45,000 acres of constructed wet-
lands and 350,000 acres of conser-
vation land.

WHAT'S A KID TO DO?
I'm a student at Moore Haven High school and I was wondering
why the youth of this town can't use JJ Wiggins? Recently, we have
asked to use JJ Wiggins for a dance during Chalo Nitka weekend. The
answer was a sharp NO! I would like to know what this building is re-
ally used for? I thought that it was for the youth of Glades County, but
I'm starting to see that this is not the case As you will see when we are
allowed to use it we are not allowed to decorate just simply allowed
to contain the children in the building. Can you tell me why we don't
have a pool, skate park or any other fun activities to keep the youth of
Glades county off the streets and out of trouble? But we have about 5
acres of orange groves. Where is that money?


Letters to the Editor


Attention Glades
County residents
Some of you have recently
received notice from the County
that your physical street address
has changed, and you were con-
cerned over the costs of chang-
ing titles and registrations to re-
flect the new address.
I just spoke with Mrs. Keen at
the office of Glades County Tax
Collector Gail Jones (863) 946-
6035 and she informed me that
you are NOT required to get the
address changed on your title to
your vehicles) or boat(s). She
did suggest that if your title is
still being held by a lien holder,
you should notify them of your
new mailing address so the title
can be mailed to you when you
pay it off. (Your payment cou-
pon may even include the form
for that.)
But if you have the title in
your possession, you do NOT
need to get it reissued with your
new address.
If you want to change the
REGISTRATION (not the title) to
your vehicle or boat BEFORE it's
time to renew it/purchase decal,
you can do that for $2.50 at the
tax collector's office. Mrs. Jones
still has her office open in Buck-
head on Wednesday.
But if you want to wait to
change your address until you
get the renewal sticker and reg-
i_ station, you can wait.
But please remember, it is
necessary to notify the Division
of Motor Vehicles of the address
change for your driver's license
and you can get the form and
cost information online by click-
ing:
http://www.hsmv.state.fl.us/
forms/address_change.html
And one of the MOST IMPOR-
TANT offices you need to notify
is the Glades County Supervisor
of Elections. Mrs. Wiiddon is
available at (863) 946-6005 for
instructions on how you can do
that, or you can email her re-


questing information at hollyw-
hiddon@embarqmail.com.
She does require your sig-
nature on a form, it cannot be
a copy, and it must be original.
Or you can go to: http://election.
dos.state.fl.us/regtovote/webap-
pform.pdf and fill out the form
on-line then print it out and sign
it to send by regular mail to Mrs.
Whiddon.
Of course an address change
comes with some inconve-
nience -- you need to get the
packet of forms from the post
office to send to folks that.you
want to have your new address.
Check this address to access the
USPS website that has answers
to Frequently Asked Questions
about address changing and
mail being forwarded to the
new address.
Also, when you mail back in
payments such as credit cards
or utility companies, you can
mark on the remittance form to
change your address, or put a
note to that effect in the enve-
lope.
The change is necessary to
eliminate duplication of num-
bers and street names, but the
main purpose is so that when
you dial 91.1 from your home
phone, your accurate address
will be displayed and available
with GPS mapping for emergen-
cy services. You certainly want
an ambulance or law enforce-
ment officer to be able to find
you quickly in an emergency.
The county has been working
on this project for several years
and Mrs. Terry Helfinstine has
done an outstanding job. Her
email address is glades911@
gladescofl.net if you have any
more questions.
You can reach any of the
aforementioned Glades County
offices toll free at (877) 445-
2337

The Master of Gardens is glad to be back


By Dan Culbert,
horticultural agent
UF/IFAS Extension Service
It's good to be back here in
town. If you have noticed, the last
two weeks of this column have
been produced by our wonder-
ful Extension Program Assistant,
Angela Sachson. I've been out
of town on a special assignment.
Actually I've been out of the
country Costa Rica to be more
accurate.
Now before everyone gets too
excited about me being gone on a
"vacation", let me assure you that
this was not the case. It was two
weeks of work, preparing and
teaching some new partners at
EARTH University about the Won-
derful World of Master Garden-
ing. The pace of preparations and
presentations allowed me only a
glimpse of those beautiful exotic
vacation paradises that you see in
the slick travel brochures. {Yeah,
right, says our local staff... }
Over the next few months I
will share what I did, what I saw,
and more importantly, the lessons
that I learned from visiting the
"wild west" of Costa Rica. Guana-
caste Province is hot (95 degrees
F) and very dry (no significant
rain since November), but still
supports a varied agricultural
economy (sugar, rice, and lots
of Brahman beef) and is facing
growing pains with an exploding
tourist economy (and you think
we have water woes).

Front row seats are
now available
If you would like a front seat to
hear all about this fascinating visit
to the land of the "Ticos", you can
sign up now for our upcoming


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION

Master Gardener course, which
is really the focus of today's col-
umn. The deadline to apply for
this training program is next Fri-
day, Feb. 8, and after interviews,
this new crop of volunteers will
begin to sprout on Wednesdays
from Feb. 20, through April 30.
This .year's course promises
something old and something
new. Many horticulture Agents
find that they are teaching the
same content, year after year, to
packed houses in their county of-
fice. (I could only hope to have
that problem!) This spring a num-
ber of the classes will be given by
state-wide experts in their sub-
ject matter the way all Master
Gardener classes were taught
many years ago. What's new is
that these class segments will be
broadcast over an internet-based
Polycom conference, so your
class-mates may be "next door"
in Fort Pierce or even up the 'pike
in Pensacola!
I'm really hoping that we have a
good crowd here in Okeechobee,
as the University has asked me to
make the presentation on Botany.
It will be "broadcast" all over the
Sunshine State from right here
in Okeechobee. (I guess if I can
teach Botany to 50 Costa Ricans
with my limited Spanish-speaking
skills, I can also teach it to hun-
dreds of Floridians from Key West
to the Panhandle just as easily!)
It's not just sitting in front of
the screen it will also be a lot of


hands on practice with the kinds
of skills and knowledge that will
help you become a better gar-
dener. I'll be arranging a number
of field trips to nurseries and land-
scapes that will show our pro-
spective Green Thumbs how to
solve Gardening problems at the
drop of a trowel.

The dirty little details
No previous knowledge of
gardening or horticulture is re-
quired or even assumed by
class members. We are looking
for "People-people", who have
abilities in talking with other local
residents about their challenges
in their Florida Yards, and who
have a passion for plants and
what makes them tick. Its about
knowing where to go, not memo-
rizing a bunch of facts.
At the end of the course, our
new flowering friends will be in-
vited to join our Extension team,
and are asked to provide 75 hours
of help to the community though
the UF/IFAS Extension Service.
It might be that a new Master
Gardner would like to work with
youth, like Bobbie Fuller, and help
set up another 4-H Junior Master
Gardener Club.
We also need folks to answer
the many different kinds of ques-
tions about plants, bugs, weeds,
and everything else under the sun
as residents and snowbirds make
their way to the Extension office.
Many organizations are begging
to get advice from Master Garden-
ers here in Okeechobee as the set
out on landscaping projects. And
of course, Angela needs lots of
help promoting Florida Friendly
Landscaping with her committed
core of Floridian


Yard advisors
The class fee includes a re-
fundable deposit that is given
back when this small number
of hours is reached. It also helps
cover the cost of reference ma-
terials, refreshments, and a polo
shirt that identifies the trainees as
most knowledgeable volunteers

The expert who told us about


paper jails and other fictions


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
A group of us were asked to
organize a conference and one of
the members said that he knew a
futurologistt." We decided to go
with it; people are always inter-
ested in the future anyway. Our.
"expert" came and spoke mainly
about not limiting our possibili-
ties, or "thinking outside of the
box." He cited an example at one
point, telling all who attended the
conference about jails in Japan
being made of paper. He said
this was possible because of the
Japanese respect for boundaries,
and their understanding of the
dignity of barriers. The minister
sitting next to me looked at him
and said "What? You're kidding!"
The presenter said "No, I've read
it before."
My neighbor had spent nine-
teen years in Japan, spoke Japa-
nese, had children married to
Japanese spouses and made
regular visits there and kept in
touch with his Japanese in-laws.
He told the presenter that "May-
be, for some very minor traffic in-
fraction, somebody might remain
kept in a paper-lined room, but
that would be the limit of it." He
was told that it might work when
someone agreed to stay put, but
that the Japanese people aren't
stupid. It seems the presenter got
carried away with his theory and-
some obscure inference in some
book was taken as support of his
"crazy" idea. We sent the pre-
senter on his way when the con-


ference fell apart. There was a lot
of laughter about the incident for
some time af- ,.'a
terward; agree-
ing that we may
need to "think ,-
outside of the a.,' k
box, but being
careful if the box /
was made ,of
rice paper." Re-
cently, there are Samuel S.
a lot of "experts" Thomas
sharing their
ideas about what is wrong with
everything; after all, it's election
time. There are those who feel
compelled to tell others about all
of the problems around us, and
how they know just what to do to
fix them. I've listened to persons
with talents in one field make
pronouncements in others, as if
wisdom was transferable and in-
sights could be plugged in where
needed.
In some instances, they've ig-
nored what others have learned
and know, and at times fly in the
face of plain, common sense.
It happens frequently in church
circles too. I know of a minister
who wanted to "help out" at a
social service agency and who
decided to tell everyone else how
to do their job. He was told not
to come back. The staff there had
years of experience, were quali-
fied by training and practice, and
were dedicated to helping the
less fortunate. The administration
struggled to keep everything run-
ning efficiently and the board of
directors gave lots of volunteer
hours toward keeping the doors


open. Simply put, the minister
didn't know what he was talk-
ing about and didn't take time to
listen. When he told people they
were doing things all wrong, the
Johnny-come-lately obviously
was way off-base.
Ordination doesn't bestow gifts
of unfailing management skills.
Jesus had a dialogue with Nico-
demus (John 31ff) when He was
asked about being born again. Je-
sus talks to him about something
they both know; about how the
wind blows and about how it is
difficult to tell its direction. Jesus
tells him, "Truly, truly I say to you,
we speak of what we know and
bear witness to what we have
seen. (John 3:11)" When the
words ring true, people will listen;
when someone speaks of what he
knows, he has something to offer.
There are times when I wonder
whether people want something
to be true so badly, that they will
insist it must be true even when it
flies in the face of reason or com-
mon sense.
The Lord came to share His
life, live with us fully, die for us.
He spoke with authority because
of it. That adage attributed to the
Indians about."walking a mile in
a man's moccasins before judg-
ing him," would have been wel-
comed by the Lord because it
tells about knowing, really know-
ing before acting.
Something to think about be-
fore we, or anyone else, becomes
an "expert" on matters of faith or
anything else!'

Wasting the value of time!


By Jackie Miller,
minister
First Christian Church of
Clewiston
All of us are guilty of wast-
ing time! Let us consider some
simple truths about time which
escape our attention. Let us con-
sider "The Value of Time".
1. Time is God-given. It must
not be wasted. We all have the
same amount of time sixty
minutes to the hour, twenty-four
hours in a day, and seven days
per week. It comes to us from the
'hand of God.
2. Time is short. This is what
Paul says in I Corinthians 7:29:
"But this I say, brethren, the time
is short..." Someone has estimat-
ed that in the average life of sev-
enty years, time would be used
up as follows: 3 years spent in ed-
ucation, 8 years spent in amuse-
ments, 6 years at the dinner table,
5 years in transportation, 4 years
in conversation, 14 years in work,
3 years in reading, 24 years sleep-
ing, and 3 years in convalescing.
It is said the person who attends


a ninety minute religious service
each Sunday and who prays ten
minutes each morning would be
giving only 10 months out of sev-
enty years.
3. Time is uncertain. "For what
is your life? It is even a vapor, that
appeareth for a little time, and
then vanisheth away" (James
4:14). Yesterday is like a cancelled
check you can't spend it again.
Tomorrow is like a promisory
note you can't spend it yet. To-
day is all the cash that you have
- spend it well because it deter-
mines you eternal destiny.
4. Time must not be wasted.
Wasted hours never return. Time
is one commodity that cannot
be replaced. The clock of time
is wound but once and no man
has the power, to tell just when
the hands will stop at late or early
hour, to lose one's wealth is sad,
indeed. To lose one's health is
more, but to lose one's soul is
such a loss that no one can re-
store. Now is the only time that
you own, live, love, toil with a
will; place no faith in tomorrow,
for the clock may then be still.


To youth, the wise man said,
"Remember now thy Creator in
the days of thy youth, while the
evil days come not, nor the years
draw nigh, when thou shalt say, I
have no pleasure in them." (Ec-
cles. 12:1)
5. Time is to be used as God's
directs. Jesus, at a very early age
said, "I must be about my Father's
business." He then grew in four
ways: In wisdom (intellectually),
In stature (physically), In favor
with God (spiritually) and In favor
with man (socially). Jesus said
that His reason for coming was
"to seek and to save that which
was lost." In the Sermon on the
Mount he instructed His follow-
ers: "But seek ye FIRST the king-
dom of God and His righteous-
ness, and all these things (what
we need to keep body and soul
together) shall be added unto
you." (Matthew 6:33). Jesus said,
"My meat is to do the Will of Him
that sent Me." The Apostle Peter
wrote, "He left us an example that
we should follow in His steps."


The incredible power of a woman


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Men, the secret is out, if it ever
was a secret. Women can have
incredible power over us. Before
you "hoo haw" me, let me share
that most guys can relate to the
trauma of trying to work up the
courage to just call a girl up and
ask her for a simple date. The
comic strip "Luan" is currently
doing a series on this man dilem-
ma. There are several advertise-
ments on TV which make light of
a guy rehearsing the macho tone
he was going to use on the phone
when he called this girl to ask her
on a second date. The reality is
that there have been a number of
women who were not asked out
because the man chickened out.
Whether we like to admit it or
not, a woman has this mind-bog-
gling power to make a man feel
very big inside or very small. I
have seen a 300 pound manly
man totally cower in front of a
petite 95 pound woman. What
women sometimes don't under-
stand is that their own happiness
may depend on how they use this
:tremendous' God-given 'poW er.
Proverbs 14 states that a wise
woman builds her house, but the


foolish one tears hers down with
her own hands.
The woman of Proverbs 31 is
one who clearly
builds up her
man and "is
worth far more
than rubies." .
"The heart of
her husband
trusts in her.
She does him
good and not John
evil all the days Hicks
of her life. Her
husband is known in the gates.
Her children rise up and bless her,
her husband also, and he praises
her."
The implication is that the man
is highly regarded in the commu-
nity largely because of the kind of
woman his wife is. I believe there
is some truth to the saying that
behind every successful man is
a woman helping make him so. I
used to share with one of my col-
leagues that I thought that one of
the best things about his ministry
was his wife. I can say the same
about me now because of the
wonderful woman I'm .married
to. 6God is good and I am blessed.
Proverbs also talks about a
woman who tears down her


Every





Voice





Counts.


house with her own hands. Up
front, I don't think any woman in-
tends for this to happen, but in her
frustration, she focuses on what
the man in her life is doing wrong
,much more than what he's doing
right. She doesn't realize what her
criticism and attacks do. In trying
to nag and push him to take the
leadership he should be taking,
she may actually be causing him
to retreat. And the more dominat-
ing and controlling and nagging
and critical she becomes, the less
the chances he will ever be all he
ought to be and what she needs
for him to be.
With Valentines' Day coming
up, there is a lot of talk about
what we men need to do for the
women in our lives. We can't tell
or show them enough times that
we love them. But there is also the
responsibility that women should
have for men. We thrive when we
are uplifted and honored.
Inside most of us men is an
individual who can blossom or
wither, depending in part on the
godly wisdom of a woman who
loves him. That woman, in the life
of any man, has incredible power
to build him up or tear him down;
to make him or to break him

Finishg- stro, g: Highlights from last week's games


INI photos/Naji Tobias

Game over
Glades Central Raiders senior guard Deandre Holley, who fin-
ished with a game-high 11 assists and is Palm Beach County's
assists leaders at 10.4 passes a game, is also a clutch shoot-
er as he made five key free throws in the closing seconds of a
62-51 victory over the Wellington Wolverines on Jan. 29. For
more photos, please visit http://photos.newszap.com.

_..- i


Classic finish
What will likely be forever remembered in Pahokee as a clas-
sic finish, Pahokee Blue Devils junior shooting guard Dex-
ter Holmes sent the tightly packed crowd into a frenzy with
this monster one-handed dunk with less than two minutes in
the regular season finale game against the archrival Glades
Central Raiders. Dexter, who finished with 19 points and 10
rebounds, helped lead the Blue Devils to a stunning 53-51
comeback victory over the Raiders on Feb. 2. Glades Central
finished the regular season with a 13-7 record and Pahokee
finished with an 11-10 regular season record. With Glades
Central focusing in on the Class 4A playoffs and Pahokee
doing the same in Class 3A, both teams hope to reach their
ultimate goals: to win their respective state championships.
Best wishes to both teams in the playoffs!


The putback shot
Glades Central sophomore Clive Wolford puts in an easy
bucket to tie the game up, 50-50 with four minutes left in
the fourth quarter of the Jan. 29 game against the Welling-
ton Wolverines. For more photos, please visit http://photos.
newszap.com.


Big time trey
Glades Central Raiders junior Rantavious Wooten makes a
pivotal three pointer with 20 seconds left in the first half to
put them up, 31-22 on the Wellington Wolverines. The Raiders
won the Jan. 29 contest, 61-52.


Palm Beach County's
leading rebounder
In a 62-51 victory over the Wellington Wolverines, Glades
Central Raiders senior forward Eddie Poole snagged one
of his game-high 31 rebounds in the second quarter. Eddie
also added 17 points in a dominating effort. With the Raiders
at a 13-6 record as of Jan. 29, Eddie eventually finished the
regular season with 16.3 points per game and a Palm Beach
County leading 22.5 boards per game. He helped the Class
4A team finish the regular season with a 14-7 record heading
into the Class 4A playoffs.


... N'- .'..

Powering up
In the third quarter of a classic match-up between the Glades
Central Raiders and the Pahokee Blue Devils, Raiders sopho-
more guard Antwon Chisolm scored two of his team-leading
17 points to put Glades Central up, 34-24. It seemed as if
Glades Central would actually win big in the Feb. 2 regular-
season finale, but Pahokee pulled off an amazing comeback
in a 53-51 victory.


The lay-in
In a game that ended in a stunning finish, down seven points
with 3:19 in the fourth quarter, Pahokee Blue Devils senior
point guard Antavious Wilson lays in a basket to pull them
within striking distance of the Glades Central Raiders, a 50-
45 deficit. It would eventually be made up as Pahokee won
the Feb. 2 regular season-finale, 53-51.


GC Cheerleaders
The Glades Central Cheerleaderleaders have likely been the big-
gest fans of the Raiders basketball throughout the season
as they all cheered on to a very solid 14-7 record to finish
the regular season..Here, the cheerleaders are just hanging
out and enjoying halftime at the Glades Central-Wellington
contest on Jan. 29.

DEPARTMENT OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION
NOTICE OF INTENT TO ISSUE PERMIT
The Department of Environmental Protection gives notice of its Intent to issue an
environmental resource permit (File No. 0264526-001) to the applicants, Mr, Her-
bert Kahlert, as Personal Representative of the Estate ot Karl A. Kalert, Herbert Kah-
lert, Port Mayaca Lake Estates, LLC, applied on April 19, 2006 to the Department of
Environmental Protection for a permit/water quality certification for a surface water
management system for a limestone mine, The property, owned by the applicants
consists of approximately 161.25 acres and contains land disturbedby mining prior
to 1989. There are 36.37 acres of wetlands and 42.54 acres of open water on site
with 82.34 upland acres with exotics or disturbed with mining spoil.
The land cover and uses within the 161-acre project area consists of; 28.05 acres
of wetlands forested with exotics, 19.01 acres of uplands vegetated by Brazilian
Pepper, 16.49 acres of shrubby wetlands, 30.14 acres of open water, 3.24 acres of
ditches, 0.99 of an acre of herbaceous marsh, and 63.33 acres of spoil area. The
project area is flat and karstic with ditches along the property boundary that lead to
the onsite borrow pits. Stormwater is absorbed through the soil and limestone, or is
directed through the.ditches and captured in the borrow pits.
The limerock matrix will not be blasted for extraction and the extracted material will
be processed on site. The ground elevation varies between 15 + and 17 + feet Na-
tional Geodetic Vertical Datum (NGVD), the average ground water elevation is ap-
proximately 12 feet NGVD and the pit depth will be approximately -15 feet NGVD.
The maximum depth of mining is expected to be approximately 30 feet below exist-
ing grade, which is approximately 27 feet below the average water level. During the
construction phase, stormwater up to the 25-year, 72-hour storm event will be con-
tained on site by a perimeter berm and runoff will be directed to the mine pit. The
berm will be kept mowed (as necessary) and routinely inspected for signs of ero-
sion. Any erosion will be repaired immediately.
No impervious surfaces are proposed with the project. Dewatering will not be used
with mining operations, which should limit hydrologic effects on all adjacent proper-
ty. The project identifies an excavation area of 57.59 acres that is comprised of
2.77 acres of exotic hardwood wetlands, 13.94 acres of shrubby wetlands, 0.99 of
an acre of herbaceous marsh, and 29.89 acres of open water to be excavated by the
proposed project. The project also identifies the backfilling of 3.0 acres of ditches,
15.09 acres of exotic hardwood wetlands, 2.55 acres of shrubby marsh, and 0.25
of an acre of open water. Approximately 4.75 acres of shrubby, canopy wetlands
and 17.34 acres of herbaceous wetlands will be created around the mine pit as par-
tial mitigation for proposed wetland impacts. For additional mitigation a Conserva-
tion Easement will be placed over the created ittoral zone, and an associated 25-
foot upland buffer surrounding the full perimeter of the reclaimed lake and shoreline.
The Conservation Easement will Include approximately 4.75 acres of forested wet-
land, 17.34 acres of shallow marsh located within the littoral zone, and approxi-
mately 4.63 acres of adjacent planted upland buffer, for a total estimated area of
26.72 acres.
The post-reclamation land use within the project area will consist of lakes with lit-
toral wetlands surrounded by upland buffers ot grass and trees. The project will re-
sult in approximately 69.76 acres of open water in one single, large, isolated
waterbody surrounded by 4.75 acres of planted forested wetlands, 17.34 acres of
planted herbaceous wetlands, 1.21 acres of planted forested uplands, and 67.94
acres of planted herbaceous uplands. A setback of 300 feet from the property line
will be established where no excavation will occur. In accordance with the manda-
tory limestone mine reclamation requirements of rule 62C 36.008, EFA.C., access
wll be controlled and the perimeter of the lake will be reclaimed with littoral zone
wetlands. The construction phase of this permit will last 20 years. Prior to the expi-
ration of the permit, the applicant will need to apply for an extension of the construc-
tion phase if required activities are not completed by this time.
The project. area is located on the east side of US Route 441/98, just south of the
Palm Beach County Line, in Section 36, Township 40 South, Range 37 East, Palm

writer Dale Crider will perform
songs about the Florida envi-
ronment from noon to 1:30
p.m. on Wednesday, Feb. 13, at
the Ortona Library, 3000 Coffee
Mill Hammock Road SW.
These songs highlight "en-
dangered wildlife, their habitats
in rivers and other fragile aquat-
ic ecosystems, and the natural
systems that support all life in
Florida." The performance is
free and open to the public.
Audience members are invit-
ed to bring their lunch, and the
Library will provide beverages,
and sweets. This is the final
program of "Exploring the En-
vironmental History of Florida,"
a project funded in part by a
grant from the Florida Humani-
ties Council.
After 30 years, Crider retired
from the Florida Game and
Fresh Water Fish Commission.
He first served as a waterfowl
biologist, and in 1965, worked
on the Caloosahatchee River
and Lake Hicpochee. Later, he
became an environmental and
educational specialist. As a bi-,
ologist and a musician, he has
tried to convince people to save
"Florida wildlife habitats and
the plants and animals depen-
dent on them."
He has entertained audienc-
es in nearly every state as well
as in Argentina, Paraguay, Can-
ada, Australia and the Carib-
bean. He has shared the stage
with performers such as Tom
T. Hall, The Bellamy Brothers,
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band, Gamble
Rogers, Will McLean, John
Hartford and various other folk,
country and bluegrass artists.
Governors and other offi-
cials from Tallahassee to Wash-
ington, D.C., have enjoyed his
performances as have national
broadcast and cable network
audiences. His songs have
been featured in the World of
Audubon TV specials, TBS's
Woodstork: Barometer of the


Everglades and other docu-
mentaries on Florida including
the title song for Apalachicola
Doing Time: The Story of the
Tri-state Water War.
He has recorded four CDs:
Watersongs and Waterways:
Eco-bluegrass music with
friends and family; Wild Wood
Swamp, Big Cypress Everglades
for All Generations, and To Be
Wild.

Occasional fasting may be good for the body


The Christian season of Lent
starts on Ash Wednesday (Feb. 6),
and for some that brings periods
of fasting. Fasting is commonly
used in many religions and a way
to purify the body and the spirit.
Medical research indicates
that occasional fasting might be
good for your health. A study by
the American Heart Association
found that those who routinely
fast one day a month may lower
their risk of heart disease. Fast-
ing is a way to detoxify the body
and to give the digestive system a
rest.
It's no surprise that fasting
is the most beneficial to those
whose health issues are from
overeating.


Fasting is not for everyone.
Young children, who need proper
nutrition to grow, should not fast.
Pregnant women and nursing
mothers should not fast. Neither
should anyone whose immune
system is already compromised
by disease. If you are on any pre-
scription medication or under a
doctor's care for any medical con-
dition, consult your doctor before
starting a fast. And of course dia-
betics and those with hypoglyce-
mia should consult their doctors
before considering any change in
their diet.
Fasting usually means restrict-
ing intake of solid food. Fasts used
to detoxify the body usually in-
clude drinking fruit juices as well


as water. Generally, this is safer
than drinking water alone while
fasting because juices maintain
the body's balance of vitamins
and minerals.
Some researchers believe fast-
ing is nature's way of resting the
body. One theory is that fasting
resensitizess" the body's cells to
glucose and insulin. Another the-
ory is that eating less reduces the
production of "free radicals." Free
radicals are pieces of cells that are
leftover from natural body func-
tions. If the body does not purge
itself of these waste materials,
they can damage other cells and
contribute to disease.
For most healthy adults, an
occasional day of fasting can be


beneficial to their health. Fasting
longer than one day is more com-
plicated. Any time you don't eat
a healthy, balanced diet, you run
the risk of nutritional deficiency. If
you restrict solid food, even if you
are careful to make sure you con-
sume all the nutrients you need in
liquid form, you may not be con-
suming enough fiber.
Before making a change
in your diet or exercise plan,
consult your doctor. This is
especially important if you
are on any prescription med-
ications. Some drugs interact
badly with foods that would
otherwise be considered
"healthy."


Glades General nurses honored for dedication


BELLE GLADE -- When two
veteran nurses began their nurs-
ing careers at a newly expanded
Palm Beach County hospital in
the Glades, Lyndon Johnson was
president and the year was 1968.
Belle Glade residents Winnie Jack-
son and Geraldine Bailey were
recently honored for 40 years of
service to Glades General Hospi-
tal and its patients. Surrounded
by colleagues on the morning of
her anniversary at the hospital,
Ms. Jackson was presented with a
nursing charm during a skills ses-
sion. Chief Nursing Officer Mary
Weeks praised Winnie Jackson
saying, "Winnie Jackson was here
when I arrived more than three
decades ago and she is one of the
foundations of this hospital. With
a strong will and proven leader-
ship, she has mentored countless
nurses while her tireless devotion
to her patients exemplifies the very
best of the nursing profession."
The charge nurse for the medi-
cal surgery and pediatric unit, Ms.
Jackson first joined the Glades
General staff as a nursing assis-
tant in 1967 after having received
her training at the hospital. While
working in that capacity for 12
years, Ms. Jackson continued her
education in the Licensed Practical
Nurse Program and, upon gradu-
ating, practiced as an LPN for a de-
cade before attending Palm Beach
Community College in Belle Glade
where she attained her Registered
Nurse degree. Ms. Jackson, along
with other members of the nurs-
ing staff, participates in a program
that places Palm Beach Commu-
-- nity College nursing students in
the hospital to gain clinical experi-
ence. Working side-by-side nurses
like Ms. Jackson, these students
receive valuable insight into their
chosen profession.
Geraldine Bailey began work-
ing as a nursing assistant in 1967.
She went to the technical school in
Belle Glade and became an LPN,


then continued her education and
became an RN. She has worked in
many capacities, including pediat-
rics and medical surgery, obstet-
rics, and as a house supervisor on
the night shift. Bailey is a resident
of Belle Glade and has a grandson
playing football for the University
of Miami. She works in a support-
ive role in all areas of the hospital.
According to Mary Weeks, "I have
great appreciation for her dedica-
tion to nursing and to Glades Gen-
eral. Gerrie Bailey was a nursing
assistant when I worked as a new
nurse my first year out of school.
She was very helpful to me at that
time and has continued to be a
wonderful mentor to the nurses
who have worked with her."
Now, four decades after their
nursing careers began, Win-
nie Jackson and Gerri Bailey are
excited to see that construction,
of the new $73 million regional
hospital and medical-campus in
the Glades is well underway. The
Health Care District of Palm Beach
County has committed $50 million
toward building the technologi-
cally advanced facility, which will
replace Glades General Hospital
The hospital will be the first iri
Palm Beach County to feature all.
private patient rooms. The Glades
Healthcare Foundation (www
gladeshealthcare.org) is leading
the fund raising campaign to com-
plete the project and those inter-
ested in more information can call
(561) 833-8999.
Glades General Hospital CEO
David Zechman noted, "As we
raise funds and build a new re-
gional hospital serving the es:.-
ern communities that border Lake
Okeechobee, it is important to re-
member that bricks and mortar are
only a small part of what makes a
hospital great. It takes people like
Winnie and Geraldine who never
waiver in their commitment to this
community and the people who
live and work here."

Reminder: Food Check Out Week here


GAINESVILLE -- With eco-
nomic concerns looming large in
the minds of most Americans, the
average cost of food continues to
remain affordable overall. Accord-
ing to the most recent information
'from the Agriculture Department's
(USDA's) Economic Research Ser-
vice, it takes just five weeks for the
average American to earn enough
+ income to pay for the entire year's
food supply. American families
and individuals spend, on aver-
age, less than ten percent of their
disposable personal income for.
food, much less than many other
nations.
The average household will
have earned enough disposable
income -- that portion of income
available for spending or saving -
to pay for its annual food supply
in about 37 days or five weeks, ac-
cording to the Florida Farm Bureau


Governor's
TALLAHASSEE -- Governor
Charlie Crist and Lt. Governor
Jeff Kottkamp have unveiled
their budget priorities for Fis-
cal Year 2008-09, which will
continue to support the devel-
opment of world class talent in
Florida through early learning
programs and workforce ser-
vices.
"The Governor is truly com-
mitted to ensuring Florida's
continued success in the global
marketplace, as evidenced by
today's budget recommenda-
tions," said Monesia T. Brown,
Director of the Agency for
Workforce Innovation. "With
this investment in our state's
early learning and workforce
initiatives, we will make great


Federation. In recognition of this,
county Farm Bureau's throughout
the state are celebrating Feb. 3 9
as Food Check-Out Week.
"Not only. is America's food
supply among the world's safest, it
is the most affordable," said John
Hoblick, president of the Florida
Farm Bureau. "The abundant, af-
fordable and safe domestic food
supply produced by America's
farmers' and ranchers' is responsi-
ble, at least in part, for our nation's
high standard of living."
"Americans work longer each
year to pay for their housing, fed-
eral taxes and medical care, com-
pared to how long they work to
pay for food," said Mr. Hoblick.
According to the Tax Foundation,
Americans work an average of 52
days each year to pay for health
and medical care, 62 days to pay
for housing/household operation


and 77 days to pay federal taxes.
Mr. Hoblick said the food we
enjoy as consumers is a product
of our successful food production
and distribution system, as well as
America's farmers and ranchers
continuing to have access to effec-
tive and affordable crop protection
tools.
This week should hold mean-
ing for most Americans, he said.
"We remain concerned that some
Americans cannot afford to buy
the food they need; but we are
proud of the role Florida farmers
play in producing the most afford-
able food in the world."
The percent of disposable per-
'sonal.income spent for food has
declined over the last 35 years. In
1970, it took Americans 14 more
days to earn enough income to pay
for their food supply for the year.
According to USDA, food is more


affordable today due to a widen-
ing gap between growth in per-
capita incomes and the amount of
money spent for food.
This overall decrease is made
more notable by trends indicating
Americans are buying more ex-
pensive convenience foods, as well
as more food away from home.
USDAs latest statistic, compiled
for 2006, includes food and non-
alcoholic beverages consumed at
home and away from home. This
includes food purchases at gro-
cery stores and other retail outlets,
including food purchases with
food stamps and vouchers for the
Women, Infants and Children's
(WIC) program. The statistic also
includes away-from-home meals
and snacks purchased by families
and individuals, as well as food
furnished to employees.
