Serving the communities south of Lake Okeechobee


mleanls thaL 40 percent of lthe lake:
surface area will be dry ground.
It will take more than a nor-
mal amount of rainfall for this
year to correct the problem. If the
area around and north of the lake
should receive a normal amount
of rainfall, the lake would only rise
two or three feet, still leaving a se-
vere water shortage.
However, abundant rainfall
north of the lake could also cause
problems for the water control
structures on the Kissimmee River
and other bodies of water flowing
into the lake. Extreme differences
in water levels on the upstream and
downstream sides of the structures
could cause excessive velocity of
the water. This velocity could scour
holes in the bottom and undermine
the structures. If this happens to an
upstream structure, it could cause
a domino effect on downstream
structures.
Charles Horne, SFWMD's depu-
ty executive director of operations
and maintenance, has proposed
several solutions to the problem
including using downstream tem-
porary weirs and putting additional
rock riprap on the downstream
side of the structures.

Happy Birthday to my best friend
All my love goes out to you
Part of me I always leave with you and
Patience is the gift I take with me
You bring to me such love and peace
Because with you I am complete
I no longer wonder where I belong
Remember today it's been "us" for so long
Today I celebrate you day of birth,
Happy Birthday baby, it won't be long
Distance is only for a short time
And until that day comes stay safe and strong
You alone I will always breathe
Thank you for showing me what love and
strength is all about. I only wish I could give
.you back on your birthday what you have
given me! All I can say is two things...
FINALLY and DONE. (smile)

How low will Lake Okeechobee
go?
On Monday, Feb. 11, the lake
level fell to 93.99 feet above sea
level. If predicted trends continue .
by early summer the lake will drop
lower than it ever has before. The
current lake level is more than four
feet below the average for this time
of year. This figure is even more
ominous when you realize that
last year it was mid-April before the
lake fell below 10 feet. At that time
the lake continued the downward
plunge until it reached a record low
of 8.82 on July 2, 2007.
It appears that this year the lake
could drop to an even lower level at
an earlier date. '
Rainfall statistics for November
through Jaouary show an aver-
age of 6.68 inches across the 16
southern Florida counties served
by South Florida Water Manage-
ment District (SFWMD). From No-
vember, 2007 through January of
this year the area wide average was
2.95 inches, which is 44 percent
of normal rainfall. The rainfall for
Okeechobee followed that trend.
According to Okeechobee County
Airport Director Vrernon Gray, a to-
tal of 2.6 inches of rain fell between
November 2007 and January 2008.
The average for Okeechobee for

that period of time is 6.25.
While some areas on the east
coast have received substantial
amounts of rainfall, that water had
to be released to tide dlue to lack
of storage or pumping facilities
and this rainfall did not help Lake
Okeechobee or the Everglades.
The National Oceanic and At-


mospheric Administration predict
that rainfall will continue below
normal for the area through the
end of April.

for government and community

LAKEPORT That quaint Amer-
ican craft called quilting is alive
and thriving at North Lake Estates
in Lakeport. The quilters of North
Lake are planning their fourth quilt
show this February.
The NLE Quilters have been
active since the club's inception in
February, 2002.

trek to Flonida each winter. While
husbands spend their spare time
fishing or golfing, the' wives and
others gather to share their love of
eSaklls range from rank amateur
(even "I've never quilted before"
types) to accomplished artisans
with decades of experience be-
hind them. But enthusiasm is
equally shared by all. At any given
time, one quilt is in a frame being
hand-quilted, quilting-bee fashion,
another is in a frame being basted,
and any number of quilt tops are
being pieced for later quilting.
This year's Quilt Show will be
held Saturday, Feb. 16, at the North
Lake Estates Clubhouse. The doors
will open at 9 a.m. Sandly Benning-
C ton spearheads this project.
"We are hoping to show from?5


to 100 quilt projects this year. While
most of the quilts will be products
of our group's members, we have
invited others from the area to dis-
play their quilts, too," she said.
Besides the expected bed quilts,
other quilted items will be shown.
Past shows have displayed wall

Those were the sounds that filled First United Methodist
Church parking lot as Big Lake Cruisers came cruising
in to share with our scout's the history of how cars have
advanced over the last several decades. The month of
January's theme was Cub Scout Car Show; the boys were
in total amazement, as they were able to sit in the cars
and pretend to drive them, at their very own private car
show. We would like to thank Big Lake Cruisers members
for taking the time to make a difference in a scout's life. In
addition, we would like to thank Home Depot who donated
truck kits for the boys to build and race. AII boys in first
through fifth grades are welcomed to join us at First United
Methodist Church at 6 p.m. on Thursdays. Cub Scout Pack
667 is where character counts and adventure begins.

OUTRAGED OVER USSC: I was reading the newspaper today
and I was outraged at what I read. The issue was talking about how
USSC has lied about the shares of the stock holders and how the one
man was paid $10 million dollars to be quite about what he knew. I
believe that the federal inspectors should come and look into this mat-
ter. US5C is going to end up just like the one company who went un-
der and all their employees lost their retirement money. My husbanel
has worked for USSC for over 20 years and this is how they repay their
hard working employees, by stealing from their shares in stocks and
putting the money in their pockets. It's bad enough that they are con-
stantly laying off long time employees who know their jobs and then
turn around and give it to someone less experienced just because they
will work for less. I don't know about the rest of you but I hope that all
those people responsible will get exactly what is coming to them.
Concerned in Glades County

BUILDING USE: I agree 100 percent about what the student from
Moore Haven said about the J.J. Wiggins. It is suppose to be used for
our children. We all complain when we see kids hanging out in the
streets but where else are they suppose to go if they can't even use
the facility that is suppose to be fOr them. What I don't understand is
why they allow a church to use that building, but not the children. It
was not intended to be used by adults it should be for the kids of our
county. That is probably why they don't want any decorations hung
up now, because on Sunday m-ornrings they will be using it to go to
church. I'm not speaking out against any church. I just believe that be-
fore that church turned their building into a daycare that they should
have had a place for their church to be held. Don't penalize the chil-
dren because you don't want the place messed up. By the way, when
is the last time they have even bought new basketballs or anything else
for the J.J. Wiggins? A very concerned citizen of Glades County who
believe our kids should come first.

GLADES COlNT`Y -- Riemem-
ber when three ladies fr~om
"G;ardlens of thle World" came to
Moore Havenl to show thec "Keel-
aIgers" how to aIrranlge flo~wer~s?
Well, they not onlly know hlow to
teach flower or un ic'illL', they pr~ac-
tice whalt they preach.
At the 2008 "Strolling Flower
Show" sponsored by the Bell
Tower Shops in association with
the Edison Festival of Lights, each
of these ladies, Sandra Kavou-
ras, Barbara Moore, and Darlene
Tompkins (Bobbs Brown's sis-
ter-in-law) and a fourth member
of GOT World, Suzy Valentine
were each awarded blue ribbons
for their entries. As a member of
Gardens of The World, a virtual
garden club, Bobbi Brown was
invited to join these ladies for
the awards luncheon after they
"strolled" through the mall to view
other arrangements by members
of other garden clubs from Punta
Gorda to Naples.


D~arlene was sponsored by
"Jos. A. Bank" mnen's store and
was aIwarded the Tri-Color award
for thle thlird year in~ a row. Sandy
Kavou~ras won Designer's Choice
award, th~e difference being--only
flowers can be used in Tri-Color,
and some dried material can be
used in Designer's Choice. For
you cattle people this amounts to
"Best of Show" and a purple ro-
sette, in both categories.
We are so proud of these la-
dies, who are trying to talk Bobbi
into entering next year. If you
don't have time in your busy
schedule for regular meetings,
but would like to learn more
about flowers and gardening,
"Gardens of the World" might be
just what you are looking for. San-
dra Kavouras is the president, and
can be reached on line at sandra-
kavouras@yahoo.com, and she
would love to tell you all about
this unique garden club.

Lakeport FestivalS
The 2008 Lak prt Sou O -
ange Festival is nowohistoy rThl
was our 17th year for the festival.
We thank you for your help in
prh oings our fes ial through
The people who attended had
a good time, but many people
chose to support other attrac-
tions out of the county. This was
also true at the Ortona Cane
Grinding Festival. These small
communities do their very best


to have a fun filled festival for the
public and still be able to support
our causes with the money we
make. It takes many people to
really make these festivals a true
success,
To all the people who did at-
tend we truly thank you for com-
ing. The quilt show, photography
and Glades history displays were
all done with perfection. The
band was well received as was
the other entertainment. There
was a good variety in the vendor


tables. Food, especially the sour
orange pie and swamp cabbage
were a big hit.
Our goal for the Our Orange
Festival is to make enough money
to support our youth of Lakeport.
We have an after school program
that is run by volunteers with 28
children enrolled. We want to
support our graduating seniors
with scholarship money and help
all the children in Lakeport who
need us. We need the support of
our local people to make our ef-


forts a big success.
Again we thank you at the
newspaper for doing your share
in promoting our festival. We
thank everyone who came to
help us. To all the local people
who did not attend, we missed
you.
Sincerely,
'Jo Randolph,
President of the Lakeport
Community Association

LaBELLE -- The Education
Center of Southwest Florida
has recently relocated to 4930
SR Hwy 29 S in LaBelle to op-
erate until Helms Road is com-
pleted and the school can be
constructed. The Glades Elec-
tric Cooperative foundation
that provides local assistance to
worthwhile projects sent $5,000
to the ECSWF to assist with the
relocation expenses. The EC-
SWF Board of Directors would
like to publicly express their ap-
preciation to the Glades Electric
Cooperative and the committee
that oversees their foundation
for the generous donation to as-
sist in the move. It is this type


of community support that will
allow the Education Center to
keep its doors open to provide
workforce training. Presently
construction trades worker
classes are scheduled in Port
LaBelle every six weeks with
the student's tuition funded by
the South Florida Water Man-
agement District. Call Sonny
Hughes, the executive director,
to find out how you can support
the Education Center; a private
non-profit technical school, or
how to enroll in the construc-
tion class. The next class is
scheduled for the first week in

Headed for the 'U'
,At Pahokee High School on Wednesday, Feb. 6, National
Signing Day, the family of University of Miami-bound Micanor
;Regis came to the signing ceremony to celebrate the momen-
jtous occasion. Accompanying Micanor are his aunt, Earthal-
'ene Boldin, his cousin and younger brother; fellow teammates
'on the state championship winning Pahokee Bluie Devils, Ar-
tis Ford and Tommy Regis; his mother, Tommycina Regis and
Talissia Johnson, his girlfriend. The family may very well be
celebrating this moment with a future NFL star, who many
believe has a very legitimate chance to get there.


INI/Naji Tobias

Pahokee Signing Day
Here at the signing table are Jatavious Miller, Artis Evans,
Jr., Anthony Sheppard, Jr. and Micanor Regis. The four Class
2B AII-State football recruits signed commitments on Feb. 6,
to West Virginia University, Alcorn State University, Western
Kentucky University and the University of Miami, respectively.
Notable players that have yet to sign with a college but will do
so at a later time, according to head coach, Blaze Thompson,
are Martavious Odoms, Antavious Wilson, Marcus Washing-
ton and Chris Dent.


INI;Naji Tobias

Big decision
Glades Central offensive lineman Xavier McKenzie, who ini-
tially wasn't sure if he was going to get any scholarship offers
before National Signing Day, told the audience that his heart
led him to sign with Stillman College, a Division II School in
Tuscaloosa, Ala. It was a very emotional day for Xavier, espe-
cially considering the fact that at one point, he was consid-
ered one of the nation's top college recruits. But in the end,
Xavier did not allow a rash of injuries to stop him from taking
one step closer to his ultimate dream: playing in the NFL. His
two biggest supporters are, of course, his mother, Barbara
James and his stepfather, Melvin James.


1Il/Naji Tobias

Moving on
Western Kentucky University may have been the only scholar-
ship offer for Anthony Sheppard, but he certainly took it and
plans to make the most of his college opportunities and turn
his doubters into believers once he gets to play quarterback
there. Anthony's family is very happy that he'll be moving on I "7

Big guy
Jarien Moreland, a standout lineman at 6 feet, 5 inches and
weighing well over 300 Ibs., committed to the University of
Central Florida after deciding not to attend the University of
Auburn, the first major college to give him an offer. At one
point, Jarien was even ranked one of the top 30 linemen in
the country. Celebrating the Feb. 6, National Signing Day
event with Jarien are his brother, Jeremy Johnson and his
mother, Angela Lee-Johnson.


Decisions, decisions
It came down to Florida Atlantic University and West Virginia
University, but Jatavious Miller is happy that his family sup-
ports the decision to move on to West Virginia, a Big East
school which is currently, one of the 'best college ~football
Steams in the country. Here with Jatavious are his uncle, Zeran
Engram, his mother, Lynora Fulmore and his stepmother, for-
mer Pahokee athletic director Malissa McAuley.

Like father, like son
At the National Signing Day event, .held on Feb. 6, maybe the best part of the festivities
was when the father-son duos of Anthony Sheppard Sr. and Jr., Don Thompson and Blaze
Thompson debated on which state championship team was better. Something that has never
happened before in the Glades area, Don Thompson coached the 1989 state championship
team, which featured Anthony Sheppard, Sr., the team's quarterback and 18 years later, the
sons, head coach Blaze Thompson and quarterback Anthony Sheppard, Jr., also won a state
championship together. That's nothing short of amazing.


INI/Naji Tobias

Stars at GladeS Central
There were four seniors on the Glades Central football team who signed letters of intent to
play college football. They were all smiles as their fellow schoolmates, teachers and families
celebrated with them. Jarien Moreland committed to the University of Central Florida, while
Travis Benjamin, E~ddie Poole and Xavier McKenzie are headed for the University of Miami,
Rutgers University and Stillman College, respectively. The celebration was held at the audi-
torium on Feb. 6 National Signing Day.

Heading north
Eddie Poole, Jr., the Rutgers-bound wide receiver, could not
be any happier in his life so far, as he finally got to show every-
one he was heading north to the New Jersey school. Eddie's
parents, Janice Jarrell and Eddie Poole, Sr., showed that they
are ecstatic he made a decision that he's very comfortable
with. National Signing Day was on Feb. 6. For. more National

Georgia bound
A huge surprise occurred at Clewiston High School during
National Signing Day on Feb. 6. It was originally thought
that two Tigers senior football players would sign let-
ters of intent. No one was able to figure out who those
two were because it only turned to be one. It wasn't what
:n bod aw l'rve tu ht, epci Il nit afte ri uwa ir,:
with Georgia Military College, a junior college located in
Milledgeville, Ga.
For someone who, just a few months ago, didn't think he
would play college football, this turned out to be a great
move. Chris said that he decided to go this route because
even though basketball is his favorite sport, he knew that
he would've had to give it up after high school. What's re-
ally amazing is that this college just recently looked at a
highlight tape of the Clewiston-Bishop Verot playoff game
and came away very impressed, especially considering
that the college was originally looking for someone else.

betayeu? pHow ecar we be
the warmth of a vulture and the
tenderness of :
a porcupine?
We want to. .
We long to. But
how canl we?
'The secret of c'drl
loving is living
loved. Love's a r~l
profit lies in itsJon
practice. One of JHics
my favorite de
scriptions of the practice of love
is found in 1 Corinthians 13 and
especially verses 4-8.
"Love is patient, love is kind.
It does not envy, it does not
boast, it is not proud. It is not
rude, it is not self-seeking, it is
not easily angered; it keeps no
record of wrongs. Love: does not
delight in evil but rejoices with
the truth. It always protects,
always trusts, always hopes,
always perseveres. Love never
fails.
Some years ago, someone in-
vited me to put my name in this
passage wherever love was. I
did. John is patient, John is kind.
John does not envy, John does
not boast John is not proud,
John is not rude, is not easily
angered.
It made this passage more
personal for me, and these are
great aspirations, but the reality
is that I don't meet these stan-


dards all of the time. Few of us

Rather than letting this Scrip-
ture remind us of a love we can't
produce, let's kick it up a notch
and let it remind us of a love we
can not resist a love that fills us
upI and overflows thle love of
God. Try inserting Jesus' name
in place of the word "love" and
see if t rings true-
"lesus is patient, Jesus love
is kind. Jesus does not envy, Je-
sus does not boast, Jesus is not
proud. Jesus is not rude, Jesus
is not self-seeking, Jesus is not
easily angered, Jesus keeps no
record of wrongs. Jesus does
not delight in evil but rejoices
with the truth. Jesus always
protects, always trusts, always
hopes, always perseveres. Jesus
nv fails "
ne Iat's God's love for ust
Some thirst heavily for this type
of love. Some don't even know
how thirsty they are. All of us
need it. Drink this in: "God loves
you Personally, Powerfully'
Passionately. "
Others have promised and
failed, but God has promised
and succeeded. He loves us
with an unfailing everlasting
love. And His love, if you will let
it, can fill you and leave you with
a love that is not only filling, but
fulfilling, and a love that will
overflow to love others even
those porcupines in our lives.


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Loving people isn't always
easy. In fact, sometimes it is
downright hard. That's a hard
fact even on Valentine's Day. It's
not easy to love those who have
been a source of heartache,
abuse, rejection, or loneliness-
How do you love people who

plies a liackdof effort, so we try
harder, dig deeper, s rain more,
But could the lack of love be
from something else? Could we
be skipping an essential step?
Cottld it be that the first step of
love needs to be toward Him
and not toward them? Some-
times even preachers have been
guilty of skipping this first step.

loe etech o hr uBr pat entl, knt
forgiving. But instructing people
to love without telling them they
are loved is like telling people to
write a check without making a
deposit into their accounts. No
wonder so many relationships
are overdrawn.
We are told to love, and we
know from the scriptures that
God wants us to love, and we
know that it's easy to love those
who love us, but how can we be
kind to those who are unkind
to us? How can we love those
who have really struck out and


began to talk about her belief in
divorce, telling the young man
that she be- _
lived in it and,
if things didn't
work out, well-
that would be
too bad but
he'd have to get
used to the idea
(Mother had -
been marriedS IS
to her one-and T ms
only for many,
many years). The young man
told the potential mother-in-law-
to-be that it might mean that
he'd have to face the prospect of
being single for the rest of his life
if things didn't work out, because
he didn't believe in divorce and
that would be his only option.

ed an assault on the hopes and
dreams the couple shared and
avoided a head-on confrontation
and shouting match where there
needed to be open doors and the
basis for a future relationship.
The Lord encountered a de-
moniac who worships Him but
who pleads, "I adjure you, by
God, not to torment me (Mark
5:7)." This is a story about a man
who desperately needs others
but is afraid even of the God of
love. The demons that inhab-
ited the tormented man are sent


packing into a herd of swine.
They will meet their demise af-
terward, but the demoniac is
not placed in the middle of a
struggle between them and the
one whose love will heal him.
There was no wrestling match
between a tormented soul and
the forces of good and evil; the
evil is deflected and love shows
forth. I watch people who avoid
takin sde i oflicts. The r

Someone has said, "We need to
be loved the most when we're
the most unlovable" and thosq
who are capable of that kind of
love share a secret with all of
those who believe in love; bring
healing, lay foundations, begin
to see the very nature of God
Himself at work in a difficult and
trying world.


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
If there is anything that cuts
across all nationalities, cultures,
peoples, times in history, hu-
man conditions; it is "love." My
library includes several books on
the topic, none of them offer any
definitive answers but the scrip-
tutes have some guides for us
all. I had the words from 1 Corin-
thians 13 framed and hanging in
my office. One of the persons do-
ing his community service time
while on probation was struck
by them.
He hadn't ever been a church-
goer or involved in "religion" but
began to ask questions. I took the
plaque off of the wall and made

I knew of a young man who
met the girl of his dreams, fell
in love, and then prepared to

daughter as "my possession."
They met and then the mother


Tlhe Gireek word for LOVE
"Agape" means to "SEEK THE
HIGHEST GOOD". It definition
goes like this: "Intelligent, unself-
ish, active, good will".
You can easily determine if you
LOVE God by reading the follow-
ing scriptures. John 14:15; I John
2:5; 4:7-8, 20-21; 5:2-4; I Corinthi-
ans 13.


Glod would not have withstood
man's treatment of Him. The
LOVE of God is what makes the
world revolve. The word of God
came to man out of LOVE. Christ
came to earth, suffered and died
for our sins, because of LOVE.
Christ established His church out
of LOVE. LOVE is the strongest
force for motivation in the world.
Most of the things which we un-


vating force behndn Christianty.
LOVE is not to be limited to our
own family, friends, and neigh"
bors. LOVE is to be extended to
ALL MEN, regardless of their sta-

and to all people regardless of
their creed. We are to LOVE the

It has been said that "LOVE"
makes the world go around!
However you feel about this state-
ment, you must admit that LOVE
is a vital part of the world. With-
out LOVE in the world, life here
would be virtually impossible. Ev-

Public Service Announcement

Automated Sanitation

Fof ROSidential Customers

D08f ROSident. The City of Clewiston announces a new Automated Sanitation Service
10all residential customers beginning during March 2008. Automated collection of
household garbage is a technologically advanced refuse collection system and is called
"aUtomated" because a special truck, equipped with a mechanical/robotic arm, auto-
matically lifts and empties a city-provided "tipper" cart without the driver ever leaving the
cab of the truck. The automated system is designed to reduce operational cost, im-
prove service efficiency, make the task of disposing of garbage cleaner for the resi-
detimprove the appearance of the city, and greatly reduce the injury potential for city
employees. Other general information follows:

ueof the carts must start immediately uplon delivery. Twice a week pick will contin-
ue and service days will not change. Service rates will not change. With the Automated
System, the City will no longer provide back yard service other than for qualified
"disability" customers.

ed that garbage items be bagged and tied, then deposited in the cart. Cardboard boxes
Should be broken down so they take less room in the cart. Do not overfill the cart to
the extent the lid will not fully close. If the lid is not closed, garbage will spill to road so
the COntainer may not be emptied. Items not in the cart will not be picked up and no
Other waste items except horticulture or "special pick up" goods may be placed at curb-
SIde for city services.

The cart must be placed within 3 feet of the curb at least 4 feet from any tree, pole,
mailbox, fire hydrant, etc, and at least 10 feet away from any cars parked in the street.

Does the city provide assisted and / or rear door collection with the automated gar-
bage container? Yes, the City provides "disability service" when residents provide a
doctor's statement informing us that a resident is unable to take their garbage to te
Street. Once we have received that statement, we will begin your assisted servic~e.

What if one cart is not enough for our weekly garbage? Additional carts may be pur-
ChaSed from the City. This is a one-time user fee and the cart remains the property o
the City. If 3 reSident moves to another location within the city, the extra purchased car
may be taken, otherwise, the cart stays at the current address.

Evangelist Bob, as he likes to be called, of Moore Haven and Jeffrey Webb of Green Acres
joined the Youth Explosion at the Church of God of Prophecy in Okeechobee last week. Both
of them quickly became part of the choir offering a "four tenar" sound to the night, as Pastor
Mike Beavis called it.


Youth from across the state traveled to Okeechobee for the Youth Explosion held at the
Church of God of Prophecy. One of the travelers included this young lady, taking part in the
prayer line, who came from Pahokee.


Wearing Youth Explosion 2008 t-shirts, with
the motto of the event "Let if Fall like Rain"
on the back, two young people in the congre-
gation from Moore Haven enjoyed the mes-

Legends of

the He ar t
Saint Valentine's Da 7
By Nancy Dale
No other occasion is so roman-
tically linked to "love" than "St.
Valentine's Day," but who is this
saintly figure Who immortalized
"love" throughout the ages?
When the despot Emperor
Claudius 11 ruled Rome, he was
not so enamored with mythologi-
cal goddess of love and ordered
all Roman soldiers not to marry.
He wanted the soldiers loyal to the
army, not to their spouses. But de-
spite his decree, Roman priest Val-
entine defied the edict and married
couples secretly. When his defiance
was discovered, he was arrested
and beheaded on Feb. 14.
In honor of St. Valentine's dedi-
cation to "love," Valentine's Day be-
came a tradition.
Valentine's Day continues to be
celebrated in many traditions all
over the world. In Europe, peasants
acknowledge their beloved by gift-
ing them with paper valentines. In
Wales, "love spoons" are inscribed
with romantic pictures believed to
open the heart.
Other Valentine's Day legends
date back to the Middle Ages. In the
1400s, when Christopher Colum-
bus launched his long voyages to
the New World, sailors mourned
their absences writing love songs
and verses, the oldest known senti-
ments preserved in the British Mu-
seum.
Throughout the! ages, Valen-
tine's Da _~_ j;~; '~ippei l occasion
set-aside 10: c~lebra~t Ith love vibes
that grip the heart.

Joseph Charles mentioned
that since thousands of boaters
use the Caloosahatchee River
and Okeechobee Waterwuay ev-
ery year, there can be potential
for additional development such
as restaurants, pharmacies, and
retail stores.
Mr. Charles has also joined
the Glades County Economic
Development Council. He is very
involved in the marine industry
and sees possibilities for a down-
town marina project in the city of
Moore Haven.
"We hope that River Forest
Yachting Center is a spark that
will bring economic develop-
ment into Glades County," said
the owner/developer.
At this time, work crews are

Dr. Fniedman is employed as
SRe erh Full Professor in the

A Florida native, he has been
a resident of Glades County for
nearly two decades serving on
various boards, including as
President of the Muse Commu-
nity Association Board of Direc-

He represented Glades
County at the state level on the
Florida Health and Human Ser,
vice Board and was appointed
by former Florida Governor Jell
Bush to the Fisheat'ing Creek

since 2001.
Numerous Glades County
contributions include donating
land for the Muse All Purpose
Building. He received the Florida
Psychological Association's 2003
award for "Outstanding Contri-
butions in the Public Interest."

they formulate their ambitions.
He also said, "Being a clinical
professor of a medical school, I
was involved in graduate educa-
tion which gave me the skills to
encourage young people to keep
pursuing education.
"My hope as a school board
member would be to encourage
and enlighten all students to the
rewards of education. Knowing
that not all students want to read
poetry, I would wish to encour-
age them in various fields, from
teaching, mechanics, agricul-
ture, technicians in many fields,
to working with the land and its
development to improve Florida
and the livelihood of Florida citi-
zens.
Dr. Elkowitz said he has been
a resident of Florida for 28 years,
and that he has counseled and
trained many Floridians, partic-
ularly in the fields of math and
science, helping students to get
in, and stay in college. He has
participated in the scholarship
program of Glades County.
"These experiences give me
a broad understanding of educa-
tion, which wiill make me a valu-
able school board member."

FPL honored for clean fuel initiatives~


.


JUNO BEACH -- Florida Pow-
er & Light Company, a leader in
clean energy and responsible
environmental practices, was
honored today by the National
Biodiesel Board with its "Eye on
Biodiesel" Award for its use of
cleaner biodiesel fuel in its die-
sel fleet.
FPL was commended for its
progressive use of B-20 (a blend
of 20 percent biodiesel and
80 percent petroleum diesel),
which the company first began
using in 1999 as a cleaner alter-
native to diesel fuel. Biodiesel re-
duces net car-bon dioxide emis-
sions by 78 percent compared
to petroleum diesel, according
to a study by the Departmenlts of
Energy and Agriculture. Today,
FPL's entire diesel fleet of almost
2,500 vehicles runs on B-20.


"Just as we are committed
to leadership in delivering clean
energy to our customers, we
want to utihize cleaner practices
in our own operations," said
George Survarit, director of fleet
services for FPL. "Biodiesel fuel
is one of the solutions that is
helping us to protect our envi-
ronment.
FPl's energy-conscious prac-
tices also include the commer-
cialization of industrial hybrid
vehicles. As the first company
in the United States to put an
industrial hybrid truck into ser-
vice in 2006, FPL has since led a
group of 30 utilities from across
the country in developing a pi-
lot hybrid truck program. With
11 hybrid trucks in its fleet, FPL's
fleet represents the largest me-
dium duty hybrid fleet in the


country.
The trucks are widely regard-
ed as the cleanest in the country,
Mr. Survant noted. FPI's hybrid
trucks are engineered to use 3Q~
to 55 percent less fuel than stan~
dard trucks
FPL plans to double the nums
ber of hybrids in the company'~
fleet every year for the next
three to four years and convert
one-third of its 2,900 company
cars to hybjrids by 2010. The
company has 53 hybrid cars on
the road today.
Last year, the Council for Sus-
tainable Florida presented the
Large Business Award to FPL for
its Green Fleet Program, an ini-
tiative to reduce fuel consump-
tion in the utility's fleet.

Ms. Thlomras also worked in
the off ce of former tribal chair-

learned diplomacy skijlls.This
combination of knowledge qlual-
ified her as the administrative

Pemayety Emahakv features
a well rounded education for
Seminole children by combin-
ing academic studies with native
Creek language, culture and arts
and crafts.
Since many of the teach-
ers come from other walks of
life, Ms. Thomas finds she can
be a link that connects them to
Seminole children and parents.
Sometimes just a few informa-
tive insights from Michele Thom-
as can help a teacher understand
a situation a lot better.
The direct line of communi-
cation has been most beneficial

now. They will house larger
boats 30-80 feet, and weighing
75 tons or less. There is a sprin-
kler system, 24-hour security,
and a 75-ton travel lift capable
of transporting boats with up to
20-foot beams. Maintenance, re-
pairs, pick up/delivery, and other
special services are available by
arrangement.
According to Mr. Charles, the
average 60 foot boat can cost $2
million, or more. At this time,
each building is planned with a
capacity to hold 60-70 vessels,
and more buildings are sched-
uled for construction. Currently,
25-30 large vessel owners have
