Budget shortfalls examined


By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY The
county meeting of Feb. 25 gave
commissioners an opportunity
to discuss budget shortfalls, and
to look for ways to avert cuts in
county services.
The passage of the state
amendment on Jan. 29 has
caused a negative budget impact
of $532,232 for Glades County
in 2008-2009. The shortfall will
worsen annually over the next
five years, and will be nearly $1
million by the fifth year, accord-


ing to state legislative plans.
Paul Beck, chairman, remind-
ed the board and the public that
state assistance for fiscally, con-
strained counties will not arrive
until the summer of 2009. Ac-
cording to Mr. Beck, the county's
monetary reserves are lower,
and it needs to be maintained in
case of emergencies.
Mr. Beck emphasized that
even the state legislature will
need to cut $2 billion from its
budget in March when the next
session convenes.
The chairman mentioned


that cuts will be needed locally;
however, it is desirable to have
county services reinain efficient.
If money is saved now, perhaps
services can be saved, too. Mr.
Beck also mentioned that main-
taining ambulance service was
on the minds of many, and is of
utmost concern.
"I do not want the county to
suffer," said Paul Beck.
Commissioner Butch Jones
suggested planning budget cuts
early in order, to lessen the im-
pact of any drastic cuts in the
near future. He asked if Wendell

MHHS recognizes Seemuth


Teacher of the
year enjoys
second career

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Richard
Seemuth, of Ohio, retired from
30 years in the chemical industry.
He decided to follow his grown
children when they moved to
Florida, and he took on a second
career teaching high school sci-
ence and math.
He spent two years in the
classroom straight out of college,
but switched careers. However,
he learned that he had to train
employees when they entered
the chemistry industry. Many of
them had to be taught statistics


and emerging technology.
Richard Seemuth has used
this experience at Moore Haven
High School, and it has worked
well for him. He is the high
school's teacher of the year.
Mr. Seemuth teaches earth
science, physical science, chem-
istry, physics and algebra to
grades Ninth through 12th. He
is determined to see that Moore
Haven's young people receive
the analytic skills of science and
math in order to get jobs that
require it. While he was in the
chemical industry, he saw that
new employees did not bring
those skills with them to the job.
Fortunately, he was able to teach
them what they needed,
One of his favorite lessons is
doing lab experiments. It puts


students in a situation where
they have to think about what
they are doing before they dis-
cover the answer, or come to a
conclusion.
"I like to do experiments with
kids; that's the fun part," said Mr.
Seemuth.
He lives in Fort Myers, and
commutes 120 miles round trip
everyday. Robert Seemuth does
additional work after the school
day ends. He teaches an after
school physics class to two stu-
dents. There may not be a large
demand for physics in a small
school district; but these two
kids are getting what they should
have, and Mr. Seemuth fills the
need.

reached at nenabolan@yahoo.com


Taylor, county manager, could
look into the likeliest cuts and
come back with proposals. Ad-
ditionally, Mr. Jones expressed
to fellow commissioners that it
would be prudent on the board's
part to examine cuts now.
Russell Echols, commission-
er, reminded the board to look
for growth areas, too. He was
encouraged by the recent open-
ing of River Forest Yachting Cen-
ter in Ortona, and the renovation
of the old jail, which is in its in-
fancy stages.
Robert Giesler, commission-


er, mentioned that the county
is mandated to keep monetary
reserves, yet frankly commented
that, up to now, the decision to
cut positions is not determined.
Commissioner Donna Storter
Long recommended that Wen-
dell Taylor's management skills
be utilized by the board in or-
der to best determine budget
cut plans. The board agreed to
delegate to Mr. Taylor the duty
of finding ways to cut spending
without cutting services and ef-
ficiency.

Chalo Nitka



draws crowd


Festival goers enjoy
parade, pageants
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY Back
in December, folks in Glades
County thought they may have
to call off the Chalo Nitka Fes-
tival; but they just knew they
could not do that.
All the communities and
local government pulled their
resources, ideas and hard work
together to ensure the festival,
parade, rodeo, pageants and
children's day would happen
as usual on the first weekend
of March.
Glades County Youth Live-
stock Show, Inc. made sure the


livestock fair was ready for local
agriculture and 4-H kids. It took
place Feb. 25-28, and conclud-
ed with a big sale of livestock
and'pig kissing spectacle.
Moore Haven High School
students put a great deal of
preparations into entertain-
ing children with contests at
Children's Day Feb. 29 which
happened the day before the
big Chalo Nitka celebration
on March 1. There was an egg
race, bubble blowing contest,
fishing contest and hoola hoop
contest; and kids got to enjoy
the carnival rides, too.
Residents from all rural com-
munities joined in and became
volunteers, participants or spec-
tators; with thanks to Moore

Did You Know?


By Dale Conyers
Peel a banana from the bot-
tom and you won't have to pick
the little "stringy things" off of it.
That's how the primates do it.
Take your bananas apart when
you get home from the store. If
you leave them connected at the
stem, they ripen faster.
Store your opened chunks of
cheese in aluminum foil. It will
stay fresh much longer and not
mold!
Peppers with 3 bumps on the
bottom are sweeter and better for
eating. Peppers with 4 bumps on
the bottom are firmer and better
for cooking.
Add a teaspoon of water when
frying ground beef. It will help
pull the grease away from the
meat while cooking.
To really make scrambled eggs
or omelets rich add a couple of
spoonfuls of sour cream, cream
cheese, or heavy cream in and
then beat them up.
For a cool brownie treat, make
brownies as directed. Melt Andes
mints in < B R>double boiler and
pour over warm brownies. Let set
for a wonderful minty frosting.
Add garlic immediately to a
recipe if you want a light taste of
garlic and at the end of the recipe
if your want a stronger taste of
garlic.
Leftover snickers bars from
Halloween make a delicious des-
sert. Simple chop them up with
the food chopper. Peel, core and
slice a few apples. Place them
in a baking dish and sprinkle the
chopped candy bars over the
apples. Bake at 350 for 15 min-
utes!!! Serve alone or with vanilla
ice cream.


1. Reheat Pizza
Heat up leftover pizza in a non-
stick skillet on top of the stove,
set heat to med-low and heat till
warm. This keeps the crust crispy.
No soggy micro pizza. I saw this
on the cooking channel and it re-
ally works.
2. Easy Deviled Eggs
Put cooked egg yolks in a zip
lock bag. Seal, mash till they are
all broken up. Add remainder of
ingredients, reseal, keep mash-
ing it up mixing thoroughly cut
the tip of the baggy, squeeze mix-
tureinto egg. Just throw bag away
when done easy clean up.
3. Expanding Frosting
When you buy a container of
cake frosting from the store, whip
it with your mixer for a few min-
utes. You can double it in size.
You get to frost more cake/cup-
cakes with the same amount. You
also eat less sugar and calories
per serving.
4. Re-heating refrigerated
bread
To warm biscuits, pancakes,
or muffins that were refrigerated,
place them in a microwave with a
cup of water. The increased mois-
ture will keep the food moist and
help it reheat faster.
5. Newspaper weeds away
Start putting in your plants,
work the nutrients in your soil.
Wet newspapers put layers
around the plants overlapping as
you go cover with
mulch and forget about weeds.
Weeds will get through some gar-
dening plastic they will not get
through wet newspapers.
6. Broken Glass
Use a wet cotton ball or Q-t
ip to pick up the small shards of

l~a.m.-1p.m.


glass you can't see easily.
7. No More Mosquitoes
Place a dryer sheet in your
pocket. It will keep the mosqui-
toes away.
8. Squirrel Away!
To keep squirrels from eating
your plants sprinkle your plants
with cayenne pepper. The cay-
enne pepper doesn't hurt the
plant and the squirrels won't
come near it.
9. Flexible vacuum
To get something out of a heat
register or under the fridge add an
empty paper towel roll or empty
gift wrap roll to your vacuum. It
can be bent or flattened to get in
narrow openings.
10. Reducing Static Cling
Pin a small safety pin to the
seam of your slip and you will not
have a clingy skirt or dress. Same
thing works with slacks that cling
when wearing panty hose. Place
pin in seam of slacks and -- ta da!
-- static is gone.
S11. Measuring Cups
Before you pour sticky sub-
stances into a measuring cup, fill
:with hot water. Dump out the hot


water, but don't dry cup. Next,
add your ingredient, such as pea-
nut butter, and watch how easily
it comes right out.
12. Foggy Windshield?
Hate foggy windshields? Buy a
chalkboard eraser and keep it in
the glove box of your car. When
the windows fog, rub with the
eraser! Works better than a cloth!
13. Reopening envelope
If you seal an envelope and
then realize you forgot to include
something inside just place your
sealed envelope in the freezer for
an hour or two. Viola! It unseals
easily.
14. Conditioner
Use your hair conditioner to
shave your legs. It's a lot cheap-
er than shaving cream and
leaves your legs really smooth.
It's also a great way to use up
the conditioner you bought but
didn't like when you tried it in
your hair...
15. Goodbye Fruit Flies
To get rid of pesky fruit flies,
take a small glass fill it 1/2" with
Apple Cider Vinegar and 2 drops
of dish washing liquid, mix well.


You will find those flies drawn to
the cup and gone forever!
16. Get Rid of Ants
Put small piles of cornmeal
where you see ants. They eat it,
take it "home," can't digest it so
it kills them. It may take a week
or so, especially if it rains, but
it works & you don't have the
worry about pets or small chil-
dren being harmed!
17. Infor about clothes
dryers
The heating unit went out on
my dryer! The gentleman that
fixes things around the house
for us told us that he wanted to
show us something and I really
tried this and did it. Mine did as
it says he went over to the dryer
and pulled out the lint filter. It
was clean. (I always clean the
lint from the filter after every
load clothes.) He told us that he
wanted to show us something;
he took the filter over to the
sink, ran hot water over it. The
lint filter is made of a mesh ma-
terial I'm sure you know what
your dryer's lint filter looks like.
well,...the hot water just sat on


top of the mesh! It didn't go
through
it at all! He told us that dryer
sheets cause a film over that
mesh that's what burns out the
heating-unit. You can't SEE the
film, but it's there. It's what is in
the dryer sheets to make your
clothes soft and static free -- that
nice fragrance too, you know
how they can feel waxy
when you take them out of
the box, well this stuff builds up
on your clothes and on your lint
screen. This is also what causes
dryer units to catch fire & po-
tentially burn your house down
with it! He said the best way to
keep your dryer working for a
very long time (& to keep your
electric bill lower) is to take
that filter out & wash it with
hotsoapy water & an old tooth-
brush (or. other brush) at least
every six months. He said that
makes the life of the dryer at
least twice as long! How about
that!?! Learn something new ev-
eryday! I certainly didn't know
dryer sheets would do that. So, I
thought I'd share!

We do print "bad" news. (It IS newsworthy when things go wrong, and
citizens need to know about problems.)

Still, we give most of our attention to good news the kind you clip and
tape to your refrigerator door. (This isn't difficult. The vast majority of
what happens in our community IS good.)

How are we doing?

Pick right plants for shade gardens


Most likely you consider your-
self very lucky to have shade on
your property. Here in Eden we
have plenty of sun and can use all
the shade we can get. But...many
people think gardening in shade
is difficult. It isn't. Not if you fol-
,low the Florida Yards & Neighbor-
hoods first principle, right plant,
right place. Choose plants which
will thrive in your shady spot.


Dark or Light?
How much shade do I have?
Good question. Let's try for a
simple way to gauge your. shade.
Shade is usually described as light,
partial, medium, full and dense.
One way to think about shade is
in terms of time.
*Dense shade is under the
deck or stairs on the north side of
the house. Never sees the sun-a
cave, for instance.
SFull shade lasts all day and no
sun shines there either but it is a
little brighter.
*Partial or medium shade is
an area where the sun's rays are
blocked for much of the day but,
which receives sun in the morn-
ing and or evening. This shade
is under mature trees or a bright
northern exposure.
Light shade is characterized by
a short period of mid-day shade
with sun the rest of the day, or, fil-
tered or dappled sunlight most of
the day. Check shade in your gar-
den once in a while to determine
if changes in plant materials may
be needed due to increased shade
from a maturing landscape.

Competition
Plants growing in the shade of-
ten must also compete with roots


UNIVERSITY OF

FLORIDA

IFAS EXTENSION

of shading trees for nutrients and
moisture. Roots competing for
water may cause shade gardens
to dry out somewhat quickly.
Some shade-tolerant plants are
adapted to low moisture situa-
tions, while others require moist
shade. The key to Florida-Friendly
landscaping is to provide water
according to the needs of the
plant and group those with simi-
lar needs together.
Many shade loving plants are
woodland plants. They will ben-
efit from a layer of mulch such
as compost. Mulch helps retain
moisture and also breaks down
into soil nutrients.

Air circulation
Branches or walls that cast
shade can also block air move-
ment. Poor air circulation may be
coupled with lower light levels.
This means the leaves of plants
stay wet longer in the shade than
in sunny areas.
Most plant disease problems
are worse under these conditions
so space plants farther apart in
the shade to allow more air move-
ment. And if water is applied with
soaker hoses or drip irrigation
systems, foliage will not get wet.

Designing for
the Dark Side
Shade gardens are usually
more subtle and restful than sun-
ny ones. Plant textures, forms and


slight color differences become
important elements of the design.
Glossy leaves have more impact
than dull or velvety ones.
Choose your colors carefully.
Variegated or yellow-green foliage
is more noticeable in the shade
than is solid green or blue-green
foliage. Light colors -- white,
cream, yellow and pastel pink--
stand out in the shade.
If your shade is deep, you may
want to put some plants in pots
and rotate them to a brighter spot
every week or so. This works if
you have a lot of tree roots too.
Make a place for garden art
--put color where you'll see it.
Don't forget a place to sit and en-
joy. These specula spots need to
be considered when placing ac-
cent plants or pots in the shade
garden.

Shade Tolerant plants
Dense shade is a challenging
place, for plants. I have an area
of dense shade where ferns grow
well. Ferns come in lots of shades
of green with many leaf shapes.
Some are also variegated. Some
spread readily by underground
rhizomes, while others are slow
to establish, needing frequent
watering for a while.
Also great in dense shade are
the ivies. There are several varie-
gated forms of this hardy plant.
Cast-iron plant, aptly named
for its determination to survive
comes in a variegated form and
was recently an FNGLA Plant
of the Year. Gingers are good in
dense shade as well. Note that all
of these plants will grow in full,
partial and light shade also.
For some color, add caladi-
ums, purple oxalis, purple queen,


begonias and impatiens. The last
two will benefit from pot culture
and, need a little more water and
an occasional vacation trip to
light shade. And, some of these
can spread another reason to
keep them confined in pots.
If you use a lot of purple-
leaved plants some lime-colored
or variegated leaves will provide a
nice contrast. Oxalis has a yellow
green variety that could be paired
with its purple sister. Spider plant
has lots of white foliage and pairs
well with purple plants too.
As you near the edge of the
tree canopy or shady area you
can experiment with plants that
need a little more sun. Liriope and
other mounding grasses make a
nice transition to turf at the edge
of shade.
There is more information
about great shade plants on our
website and at the Florida Yards
& Neighborhoods site where you
can search the database for shade
lovers, http://www.FloridaYards.
org (We have placed a list of lo-
cally adapted shade plants on our
website.) With the right plant in
the right place shade gardening
can be (almost) effortless and
(very) satisfying.

tion on shade gardening, please

IFAS helps Florida agriculture and all Floridians


By John Hoblick
President of Florida
Farm Bureau Federation
What is the future of Florida's
agriculture industry?
I am often asked questions very
similar to this and I have given it a
great deal of thought.
As president of the state's only
general agriculture organization
representing 143,000 member
families, I can say I see a bright fu-
ture for Florida.
A year ago I was tapped to
serve as chair of a group of CEOs
'and directors of agricultural asso-
iciations and corporations seeking
ia shared industry-wide vision. The
iFuture of Agriculture task force
developed the vision that agricul-
ture will remain a pillar of Florida's
economy. The leaders who serve
ion the task force see agriculture
remaining an important economic


force into the 21st Century and,
we want to share that vision with
Gov. Charlie Crist, legislators, and
Bernie Machen, president of the
University of Florida.
Agriculture's bright future
doesn't come without challenges.
Many of these challenges will re-
quire collaboration.
Which brings me to the Univer-
sity of Florida's Institute of Food
and Agriculture Sciences (UF/
IFAS) and the threat of substantial
budget cuts during this year's leg-
islative session.
We all understand that the state
is facing a record revenue short-
fall that will require budget cuts,
across the board. Specific figures
are not yet available, but most
certainly UF/IFAS will face cuts; so
will every other program funded
by the Florida Legislature.
My concern is that programs
related to agriculture not be cut


disproportionately relative to other
programs, and Farm Bureau con-
tinues to work to make it clear to
legislators and administrators that
disproportionate cuts could dimin-
ish the viability of the agriculture
industry, which remains Florida's
second-largest economic contrib-
utor.
The research and Cooperative
Extension Service components are
major resources that benefit not
only Florida agricultural producers
but every Floridian. With a unique
climate and over 280 agricultural
commodities produced in Florida,
UF/IFAS provides needed research
and development for this industry.
For the vast majority of these com-
modities no other university or col-
lege is doing the needed research.
Florida's unique climate creates
distinct and separate research and
technology transfer needs.
As the crops have changed, the


university's services to the industry
have adjusted accordingly. Within
the last five years, a great deal of
university research has dealt with-
the protection of natural resourc-
es. Because farmers and ranch-
ers contribute significantly to the
stewardship of the state's land,
wildlife and natural resources, the
university is assisting them with
this mission. Agriculturalists are
pioneers in proper land use and
their enterprises interface with our
natural resources. They should be
congratulated for centuries of de-
votion to the cultivation of food
and the protection of the land
upon which we all depend.
I am concerned about the
potential for draconian budget
cuts. Extension benefits both the
general public (urban and rural)
and the agricultural community.
The services IFAS provides simply
aren't being provided by any other


entity.
Historically, UF/IFAS has had
Extension Offices in each of Flor-
ida's sixty-seven counties. Sixteen
Research and Education Centers
(RECs), Research and Demonstra-
tion
Sites (RDSs) and several other
offices are located throughout the
state.
With a renewed public inter-
est in "green" or sustainable liv-
ing, IFAS is in a unique position to
provide reliable information in this
area.
Soultionsforyourlife.com is
perhaps the best way to sum up
what IFAS/Extension does for ev-
eryone in Florida. This website is a
gateway to all of that expertise and
makes it easy for the public to get
the information they need, at any
time. Topics include lawn and gar-
den care, family life and consumer
choices, agriculture, community


development, the environment
and youth development. The site
is focused on providing timely and
relevant solutions for improving
Floridian's lives.
Floridians must realize how
important IFAS is; not only to ag-
riculture, but to the many niches
it fills for all of us. I encourage ev-
eryone to contact their legislators,
members of the board of trustees
and President Machen to let them
know how much we all value
IFAS's contributions to the public
good.
(John Hoblick has.been presi-
dent of the Florida Farm Bureau
Federation since 2006. Florida
Farm Bureau is the largest gen-
eral agriculture organization in the
state representing 143,000 mem-
ber families.)

Questions that can't be answered: better off without


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
I keep hearing the word "re-
cession" and listening to com-
mentators talk about it. Some say
"We're bordering on recession",
others will tell us "No, we're just
having a downturn but it's not a
recession", others say "We're in
a recession and things are going
to get worse", still others believe
"This is just a cycle" and pre-
dict the dates when they think the
housing market will be restored
and all will be back to "normal"
once more. I can look around
and see the price of gas rising,
the boxes in the stores getting
smaller, hear about the rise in the
number of. foreclosures, listen
to reports about layoffs and job


cuts, and say "Aha, we're in a....
and then wonder what would
be the best word to accurately
describe it all. In fact, I don't re-
member a recent period when
I wouldn't have liked lower gas
prices, wouldn't have liked more
for my money, not hearing about
somebody being out of work, or
something bad happening some-
where.
When I call what is going on
a "recession", I'm saying, "The
glass is half-empty" rather than
half-full. What the truth of the
matter is "The glass is at the fifty
percent level." Then what is go-
ing on doesn't have some of the
particularly negative meanings
which may, or may not, exist in
my life. People look around and
connect lots of dots when may-
be, just maybe, a true picture
rests in looking at where we find


ourselves today. I can see a pes-
simism coming when someone
says, "recession" and then I look
inward.
Giving a name to it all that
carries other connotations won't
help. I worked in an office once
where we had an employee who
didn't work out; there came
the day for letting him know he
was no longer needed. When
the difficult moment came, he
asked, "Am I being fired or just
terminated?" We told him he
was "terminated" and it seemed
to cushion the blow for him;
even if amounted to the same
thing. I meet people that tell me
they're "depressed" and wonder
if it might be better to talk about
being "sad" or "down in the
dumps" or "unhappy."
The word, "Depressed" has
a lot of meanings that go with


it, suggesting something much
-more serious and requiring in-
terventions or special treatment
when this might not be the case
at all. There are certainly times
when labels and descriptors are
useful but their use must be tem-
pered with the baggage they carry
with them. There is a Biblical ac-
count of laborers in the vineyard
(Matthew 20:1ff). Some work all
day, some work a half-day, some
work only an hour. Everything
is going well until they find out
they're all paid the same.
On hearing about being paid
for what they did instead of by
the hour, the ones who worked
longer felt entitled to more. The
lesson tells us, "Now when the


first came, they thought they
would receive more but each of
them received a denarius. And
on receiving it, they grumbled
at the owner saying..'you have
made them equal to us who have
borne the burden of the day and
the scorching heat'(vss 11-12)."
We learn about how jealousy
makes people unhappy, how
perceived injustices cause jeal-
ousy and anger, how labels don't
really help. In the parable, each
got what he agreed was worth
his hire. It doesn't do anybody
any good to compare airline
ticket prices with the passenger
next to you as you're flying from
point A to point B; I like to think I
made the best deal I could when


I bought the ticket and let it go at
that. Are we in a "recession?" I
don't know, but then I'm in good
company because the supposed
experts can't agree either. What
I- do know is that i may have to
make some adjustments. I'm
not convinced thatanswering the
question will help. I'm happyto
let it be.lt's OK not to know. We
may be better off for it. By the
way, when it comes to matters
of faith, we don't always "know"
either; we're still better off hav-
ing faith, too. Living without
trying to pin everything down;
we really do it all of the time. It
can lead to happiness, content-
ment, and a whole host of good
things.

Embracing a greater reality


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Everett Alvarez Jr. was the
first American pilot shot down
over North Vietnam on August
5, 1964. He spent eight years and
seven months in brutal captivity
in North Vietnam, making him
the second longest held POW in
American history. The first year
and a half Alvarez spent in solitary
confinement.
Alvarez was repeatedly beaten
and tortured, but one of his dark-
est hours came after seven years
in prison. On Christmas Day 1971,
his captors let him read a letter
from his mother that said his wife
had left him. In reflection, Mr. Al-
varez said, "The hardest part was
being alone. I used to do a lot of
talking. I talked to God, and I re-
alized I wasn't really alone." He
scratched a cross outside his hut.
Mr. Alvarez prayed often.
When Mr. Alvarez was finally
released, he emerged from captiv-
ity with a new spirit. He remarried
soon after his release in February
1973. He earned a law degree in
night school. He held two senior
political posts in the Reagan ad-
ministration. In 1988, he started

MHES PTO would like to give a
big "THANKS" to Glades Electric
and to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Ah-
ern for their generous donations
at this year's Livestock Sale. Both
were kind enough to purchase an
animal and allow it to be resold
for the PTO's profit. Lastly but not
least the winner of the Second
Annual PTO Golf Ball drop was
Debbie Pressley who was also
generous enough to donate $500
of her $1,000 winnings back to
MHES PTO!
Thanks for your support!


Just so you know 37 percent of
the population is eligible to give
blood, yet less than 5 percent of
people actually do donate. One
donation can save up to three
lives. You can donate every eight
weeks, up to six times a year. Car
accident victims can use 50 pints
or more of blood. If you give to-
day, you could be saving a life in
just two days.
Donating blood is good for


your health! Every donor receives
a mini-physical which includes a
blood pressure check, cholesterol
screening, pulse reading and iron
level testing. Research shows that
the chance of heart attacks and
certain types of cancer found in
men can be dramatically reduced
if they donate blood at least three
times a year. For more information

I HENRY REGIONAL
~~ ,,MEDICAL CENTER
MEDICAL mTR KEEPING IT CLOSE TO HOME


No one wishes to be a candidate for surgery, but if it becomes necessary for you to have an
operation, Hendry Regional Medical Center is the place to be. Dr. Leonard Carroll isa board-
certified general surgeon who arrived in February of 2007. He now performs over a hundred
surgeries a month at HRMC.

During high school when young Leonard was making decisions about his career path, his father
offered him two choices he could become either a minister or a doctor. Leonard chose the
medical field. He finished high school at the age of 17 and completed college two years later,
doubling-up on his college semester courses and credits and going through summer sessions. At
the age of 19, Leonard Carroll was a 'straight A' medical student. He graduated in 1967 from
the University of Tennessee Medical College. He completed his internship and his residency at the
Baroness Erlanger Hospital in Chattanooga, Tennessee.

Before coming to Clewiston, he and his wife lived in . .
Jamestown, Tennessee, where he was a General Surgeon ii,._ .
for 18 years. He and his wife, Cindy, are veiy familiar with . ~
rural communities. As a comparison in population statistics
in 2000, Jamestown was a mere 1,839 to then Clewiston's
6,460. The Carrolls have become actively involved in
church, civic organizations and social events and have
purchased a home in Clewiston.

Although word is getting out about this experienced and "
personable surgeon, many in the community are still unaware that they may have surgery, right
here at home. Dr. Carroll performs various types of surgical procedures among them are
laparoscopic and endoscopy surgeries.

Laparoscopic surgery, often called band-aid surgery, is a
modern technique in which operations in the abdomen are
performed through small incisions, as compared to the
traditional larger incisions. Of these types of procedures,
K Dr. Carroll performs laparoscopic removal of the gall
bladder and appendix, plus hernia repairs, vasectomies
and tubal ligations. He also does circumcisions,
hemorrhoid' surgeries and many gynecological procedures
such as ovarian cysts, hysterectomies and others. In
addition, Dr. Carroll performs endoscopic operations.
idoscopy mears "looking inside" and typically refers to
Smoking inside the human body for medical reasons, using
an instrument called an endoscope. These types of
surgeries include gastroscopy, bronchoscopy and
colonoscopy, which can all be performed right here at
HRMC.
Dr. Carroll has always had high work ethics, and it's not
unusual for him to put in over a hundred hours of work per
week. His patients become personal to him on more than just a professional level he prays for
his patients before their surgical procedures.

Just because you or a family member need surgery doesn't mean you have to leave town for the
procedure. At Hendry Regional Medical Center, you'll have access to a broad array of
sophisticated surgical services in both in-patient and out-patient settings. Schedule your surgery
near home. Call Dr. Leonard Carroll's office for an appointment at 863-983-5026. (View the
Hendry Regional Medical Center website at www.hendryreaional.orq for additional information
regarding the hospital and its
services.)

The Bible on the


torture rack


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
II PETER 3:16 is very graphic
in its picture of tfose who would
abuse the Scriptures, trying to
make them say something that
they don't. Peter had been writ-
ing about false teachers and
those who belittle the teaching
of the Second Coming of Christ
(Chapters 2 & 3). In rebuttal, he
continued "The Lord is not slack
concerning His promise (of the
Second Coming), as some men
count slackness, but is longsuf-
fering to us-ward, not willing
that any should perish, .but that
all should come to repentance"
.(3:9). They should be alert, look-
ing to that day of the Second
+ Coming of Christ and the de-
struction of the world, in godly
living. Then Peter admonished,
"Wherefore, beloved, seeing
that ye look for such things, be
diligent that ye may be found
of Him in peace, without spot,
and blameless. And account that
the longsuffering of our Lord is
salvation; even as our beloved
brother Paul also according to
the wisdom given unto him hath
written unto you. As also in all
his epistles, speaking in them of
these things; in which are some
things hard to be understood,
which they that are unlearned
and unstable wrest. as they do
also the other Scriptures, unto
their own destruction." (II Peter
3:14-16).
Peter classified Paul's writ-
ings with other Scriptures as
the Word of God. In them some
things were harder than others to
be understood; and there were
those who would WREST them,
along with other Scriptures, to
"their own destruction." This
word "wrest" is highly interest-
ing. It basically means to torture,
put on the rack. The noun from
which it comes has reference
to "an instrument for turning or
winding, a windlass, rooler...a
screw press..a rack or instru-
ment of torture."
There- are those foolish
enough to treat God's Word as
if it were some poor soul placed
upon the torture rack, trying to


make it say something that it
does not say (or mean). With
the turning of the rollers, the
rack, the screws, the victim's
joints and limbs were dislocated'
or crushed. Some people are this
reckless with the Word of God.
First the difficult things are
chosen for torture because the
easier ones cannot as readily be
forced and twisted. The immedi-
ate context is the Second Com-
ing of Christ. Today Scripture like
the book of Revelation is often
found upon the torture rack. Ob-
scure language is used to try to
prove way-out theories (which
have become dogmas). In the
torturous process the rest of the
Bible, although in plain everyday
language, suffers also. And dif-
ficult Scriptures are not the only
ones that fall victim to the torture
rack.
Such simple references as Acts
2:38 "Repent and be baptized
everyone of you in the name of
Jesus Christ, for the remission
of sins, and ye shall receive the
gift of the Holy Spirit.", is twisted
and disjointed by those who re-
fuse to accept what it says.
Matthew 19:9 is very plain,
but the torture rack is brought
out by those trying to make it
say more than is there. People
hertofore had not a problem
with this Scripture. But preach-
ers today, like Balaam, go back
hoping the Lord will have more
to say. Let us not attempt to be
wiser than that which is written.
Let us respect the silence of the
Scriptures.
Peter says the end result is
that they who use the torture
rack will twist the Scriptures to
their own destruction. Remem-
ber the warning that is found
in Revelation 22:18-19 about
adding or taking away from this
book of prophecy. The apostle
Paul said it was an awful thing to
pervert the gospel of Jesus Christ
(Galatians 1:6-10). Let us honor
and respect the Word of God.


First Christian opens
recycling program
First Christian Church, 210
N. Francisco Street, has begun
a recycling program to benefit-
their Building Fund. They are
collecting empty laser and inkjet
cartridges and used cell phones
from the community and ship-
ping the waste products to a
service provider in exchange for
cash. In addition to the needed
funding the church and its sup-
porters are.helping to protect
the environment by keeping
toxic inks, toner, etc, out of our
landfills. If you have items for re-
cycling you may call the parson-
age (863) 983-1804 for pick up or
you may bring the items to the
church during service hours or
to the parsonage at 730 E. Con-
cordia Ave. at other times. Jackie
Miller is minister of First Christian
Church*

Caloosahatchee center of well-being Festival


By Patty Brant
Caloosa Belle
In many ways the Caloosa-
hatchee River is an environmen-
tal and economic center of this
area. It is that aspect of the river
that Congressman Tim Mahoney,
Democrat representing District
16, was focusing on during Riv-
erwatch's Caloosahatchee River-
boat Cruise Feb. 23.
Along with numerous experts
in environmental fields, the Con-
gressman discussed water and
energy issues including the WRDA
Bill, the Farm Bill and the future of
bio-energy in Florida.
Coming up with clean renew-
able sources of energy and find-
ing ways to improve the local
economy can go hand in hand for
many who deal in agriculture as'
well as the environment.
The river cruise was an oppor-
tunity to continue a discussion on
bringing the agricultural and envi-
ronmental communities together
to advance growth in those ar-
eas. Best Management Practices
(BMPs) -- sets of regulations for
agribusiness that promote prac-
tices that achieve water quality
and quantity benefits -- were also
discussed.
Organizers brought numer-
ous environmental groups as well
as those representing the largest
economic force in the area, agri-
culture; together in the overview,
which included a history of the
river presented by Rae Ann Wes-
sel of the Sanibel-Captiva Conser-
vation Foundation.
Ms. Wessel explained how the
river, originally only 5- to 6-feet-
deep, meandered through the
area with 300 to 400 bends, filter-
ing run off from the north.


Marketing
Continued From Page 1
Ms. Whirls explained that the
glossy publication was intended
to provide statistics and desirable
features for business inquiries.
Geographic location, landscape
and local culture may entice busi-
nesses to choose Glades County
for a new or growing industry.
The packet emphasizes tax in-
centives to businesses that locate
within the Glades County Enter-
prise Zone. Statewide incentives
- such as refunds, exemptions,
sales tax credit, or corporate tax
credit were listed, too.


Caloosa Belle/Patty Brant
U.S. Congressman Tim Mahoney speaks with Philip Stansly
of IFAS during a cruise on the Caloosahatchee River Feb.
23 which included some 40 of the area's environmental and
agricultural experts. Discussion centered around the interac-
tion of the environment and the economy.


After multiple dredgings, the
river was channelized. Combined
with the straightening of the Kis-
simmee River and upper chain of
lakes, this created a flushing effect
of nutrient-laden water out to the
Gulf of Mexico. This, in turn, has
created environmental repercus-
sions in the estuary.
The Caloosahatchee is now
25-feet-deep, a quarter mile wide,
with high spoil banks and only
38 oxbows. Flow can now drain
from north to south faster than
the system's capacity to treat it
naturally. For that reason, the new
thinking is to echo the past, she
said, and renew the north-south
system as much as possible.
For his part,. Congressman
Mahoney explained that he has
learned that in Congress nobody


gets his way all the time -- House
members are forced to collabo-
rate, forming a balance.
Florida's economy is experi-
encing a weak recession and for
the first time, more people are
leaving Florida than coming, the
congressman said. The question
is: How does the state improve
the economy for all and foster
growth while still preserving our
historical, cultural and environ-
mental values?
Congressman Mahoney is a
leader in promoting research and
investment in cellulosic ethanol
in. the Farm Bill. He ranks biofuel
production very highly, stating

the packet refer to demographics,

seat of Moore Haven, and com-
munities of Ortona, Lakeport,

producers, Florida is a natural for
new opportunities in the field of
biofuels.
Congressman Mahoney is pre-
dicting some 10,000 new jobs in
the bio energy industry coming to
the southern part of the state and
wants to keep these opportunities
local. Fifteen years from now, he
believes areas that are economi-

Director of the Calooshatchee
River Citizens Association (River-
watch), has suggested the gov-

"green industry" opportunity for
the area, he believes.
The congressman said the
federal government will have to
be pushed to help fund some of
these projects, however, because
President Bush's administration
has prioritized building Iraq's in-
frastructure and bolstering Home-
land Security.
The congressman also said
he is looking at the original Ev-
erglades Restoration legislation
to see what exactly was agreed
upon. The legislation was billed
as a cost split between the state of
Florida and federal government;
however, the federal government
has not contributed to Everglades
Restoration as yet.
Congressman Mahoney said
this is a historic time of new
economic challenges and global
competition.
