Buckhead Ridge speaks out


Civic responsibility
propels community
to restore economy

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
BUCKHEAD RIDGE On
March 8, small business owners,
property owners, and county
commissioners gathered for a
large meeting in order to fur-
ther efforts to get the Pearce and
Buckhead Ridge Canals cleaned


so navigation will be restored.
Approximately 250 people
showed up at the Buckhead
Ridge community center be-
hind the fire station. The com-
munity is located in fiscally con-
strained Glades County, and sits
on the northwest bank of Lake
Okeechobee. The decades-old
neglect of waterways to the big
lake have caused local business
owners to steadily loose income
from tourists and fishermen. The
two canals that used to furnish
lake access are now dead ends.


Property owners in this fish-
ing colony have taken a hard
hit, too. The value of homes has
tumbled due to the Florida land-
boom bust, and even worse is the
fact that their community is land
locked without ingress or egress
to the area's prime attraction of
Lake Okeechobee. Of course,
the drought, whether man-made
or natural, has made the status
quo of neglect far worse. For-
Sale signs in front yards are an
epidemic in the state, but Buck-
head Ridge real estate signs went

Garden Club meeting held


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
There probably aren't many
places in the world that can
boast as perfect a day in March
as Glades County. Never mind
that there are some things that
this south mid-county does not
have, there are a multitude of
assets that it does have.
Friday, March 7th, was one
of those assets: a bluebird day
with a capricious breeze, the
fragrance of hundreds of flow-
ers, the come-and-go Shade 'n
sun under some of the most
enormous oaks in our'county,


all in the garden of Mr. and Mrs.
Larry Luckey Sr. Larry Luckey is
the property appraiser of Glades
County.
The occasion was the an-
nual March meeting of the
Glades County Garden Club,
the oldest garden club in the
county. These annual meetings
are more like a grand church
supper with members and
guests bringing whatever they
like best, usually their favorite
recipe. However, the crowning
touch to the grandiose garden
party is always the chicken and
pork barbecue of Larry Luckey
himself, known far and wide for


his unique toucl at the barbe-
cue grill..
He makes no secret of his
"secret." Sour oranges! Of
course he has his own sour or-
.ange trees, so the fruit is picked
day-fresh about which he says,
"Well, of course, the oranges
must be juicy. Simply cut the
fruit in halves and squeeze the
juice directly onto the chicken
and pork that's being barbe-
cued. Squeeze the juice and
turn the meat often. And don't
be in a hurry! The best barbe-
cue takes a good bit of time, so

up sooner than most.
According to Ms. Bradley, the
fishing community had been a
beautiful spot where she could
run her own boat and do a little
fishing. Last year, she and others
were horrified when the low lake
levels suddenly plummeted even
lower. It was like the plug had
been pulled out of the bathtub.
Ms. Bradley and other proper-
ty owners sought the help coun-
ty commissioners. On June 25, a
Glades County commissioners
meeting took place. SFWMD


and the Corps of Engineers were
asked point blank at this meeting
about which agency owned the
canals and who was responsible
for the historic waterways. Nei-
ther agency was able to acknowl-
edge who was accountable.
On Nov. 13, the Glades Coun;
ty commissioners supported a
resolution penned by Buckhead
Ridge, residents that asked SF.
WMD to clean and maintain
the Pearce Canal as a safe and

Moore Haven may


adopt new curfew

Council members county government.


applaud Chalo
Nitka success

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN -There was
a city council meeting at Moore
Haven City Hall March 4. Glades
County Sheriff, Stuart Whiddon,
was present to explain more
about the recommended juve-
nile curfew ordinance, which
has already been adopted by


The ordinance was writ-
ten in accordance with Florida
statutes, and has been imple-
mented in Palm Beach, Fort
Pierce and Lee County. Sheriff
Whiddon commented that 75
percent of burglaries are done
by juveniles.
He would like for the city
to adopt the curfew because
he can use it as a tool to de-
ter these crimes. Even though
Moore Haven is small, criminal
activity is everywhere.

hosted 70 business and com-
munity leaders from Palm Beach
County's western communities at
the Dolly Hand Cultural Arts Cen-
ter in Belle Glade for an event in
support of the new regional hos-
pital in the Glades.
Glades Healthcare Foundation
is leading the $73 million capital
campaign for the hospital proj-
ect.
Dolly and Homer Hand chaired.
the event along with co-chairs
Deborah and Tom Altman, Barba-
ra' and Hugh Branch, and Denise
+ and Roger Hatton.
Mrs. Hand, a Foundation board
member and lifelong resident
of the Glades, shared her excite-
ment for the new hospital and its
promise with guests.
"This project symbolizes a
new beginning for advanced
healthcare and a new investment
in the Glades region," said Mrs.


Hand. "The hospital and sur-
rounding medical campus will be
a cornerstone of the foundation
of our community as it grows and
prospers in the years ahead."
Construction for the new 70-
bed regional hospital began in
November 2007 with an open-
ing scheduled for early 2010.
The Health Care District of Palm
Beach County has committed $50
million toward the $73 million
project.
Glades Healthcare Foundation
is working with individual donors
and organizations to raise the re-
maining $23 million in financial
support needed for the new hos-
pital.

tion at 561-833-8999.

National Colorectal Cancer awareness month


Men, women
equally affected

Glenda Wilson
HRMC
March is National Colorectal
Cancer Awareness Month.
It takes guts to face the facts
about colorectal cancer and do
something about it. Hendry Re-
gional Medical Center wants you
to know the facts:
1.Colorectal cancer is the
second leading cause of cancer
deaths in the United States-
only lung cancer is more deadly,
affecting about 174,000 people
each year and taking 160,000
lives.
This year alone, about 149,000
Americans will be diagnosed
with colorectal cancer and about
55,000 will.die from it. By com-
parison, breast cancer will affect
213,000 women this year and
claim about 41,000 lives. During
that same time, roughly 234,000.


men will be diagnosed with pros-
tate cancer and 27,000 will die
from it.
2. Even though colon cancer
and rectal cancer are often re-
ferred to together (as colorectal
cancer), they describe cancers of
two different areas. Rectal cancer
occurs when a tumor grows in
the bottom 6 inches of the bow-
el. If a tumor grows in any area
of the bowel that's above the rec-
tum, it is called colon cancer.
3. Colorectal cancer affects
men and women in equal num-
bers. It is not a "man's disease,"
which is how some 'people
think.
4. Colorectal cancer doesn't
discriminate a person of any
race can get this disease. How-
ever, African-American men and
women are more likely to de-
velop colorectal cancer than any
other racial group, and they are
also more likely to die from it.
5. Although it is true that nine
out of ten cases of colorectal


cancer are diagnosed in people
older than 50, the average age for
diagnosis is only 62. This is why
doctors recommend that every-
one older than 50 should have
routine screening exams for col-
orectal cancer.
6. Genes can play a part in
who develops colorectal cancer.
As with many other diseases,
your risk goes up if a close fam-
ily member has had it. However,
the majority of people who get
colorectal cancer have no family
history at all.
7. The majority of people
who develop colorectal cancer
have no history of inflammatory
bowel disease or other bowel
conditions. Even if a person has
never had digestive problems of
any kind, he or she is still at risk
for colorectal cancer. However, a
change 6f bowel habits may be
an early symptom.
8. Colorectal cancer can grow
for a long time without caus-
ing any symptoms-or in some
cases, it may cause vague or low-


level symptoms that a person
might ignore. Often, by the time
it causes noticeable symptoms,
the cancer has become much
harder to treat.
9. Colorectal cancer is actu-
ally one of the most preventable
cancers. Tumors in the colon or
rectum begin as polyps (benign
growths), and it is possible to
detect and remove them before
they become cancerous. This is
done with a colonoscopy, a test
that uses a scope to examine the
entire colon and rectum. If the
doctor finds any polyps, he or
she can remove them during the
exam.
10. When colorectal cancer
is found early meaning that
the cancer is confined to one
location within the colon or rec-
tum, it is very treatable, and the
vast majority of people survive.
,It becomes much more difficult
to treat when it's discovered later
and after the cancer has spread
to other parts of the body.

Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) a quiet threat


PALM BEACH COUNTY-Wel-
lington Regional Medical Center
announced its support of DVT
Awareness Month, joining a na-
tional effort to raise awareness
of this serious, yet preventable
condition and its potentially fatal
complication, pulmonary embo-
lism (PE).
According to the American
Heart Association, up to 2 million
Americans are affected annually
by DVT; PE causes approximate-
ly 300,000 deaths in the United
States each year, more than AIDS
and breast cancer combined.
Yet, a national survey found
that 60 percent of Americans have
little or no awareness of DVT.
DVT occurs when a blood clot
forms and partially or completely
blocks blood flow inside a deep
vein, typically located in the calf or
thigh. If the blood clot breaks free
and travels to the lungs known
as a pulmonary embolism (PE), it
may obstruct the pulmonary ar-
tery or one of its branches, block-
ing blood flow to the heart.

delivered.
Melanie Bloom, widow of
NBC correspondent David Bloom
and the Coalition's National Pa-

dition."
The Coalition to Prevent DVT,
a national organization funded by
sanofi-aventis U.S. LLC, is com-
prised of more than 45 members
from medical societies, patient
advocacy groups and other pub-
lic health organizations. It has
spearheaded DVT Awareness


has had tremendous impact in
awareness raising efforts both in
the national media as well as the
public policy forum.
"DVT Awareness Month pro-
vides an excellent opportunity for
the general public and healthcare
community to learn about this
disease and how to reduce the
risk of a DVT blood clot," said Dr.
Bishop. "We encourage both the
public and healthcare profession-
als to be aware of all the risk fac-
tors associated with DVT, so that
patients can be treated appropri-
ately."
In recognition of the DVT
Awareness month, Wellington
Regional will designate one day
each week during the month of
March for a lobby display, hands-
on employee activities and will
provide community education on
DVT and stroke. Please join us on
March 11, 17 and 26.

9140, By Dan Culbert
calls Extension Horticultural Agent
kf the Welcome to the second An-
tingl nual Okeechobee County Fair,
which opened last weekend. If
you have not yet made-it out to
the County's Agri-Civic Center,
you are in for a treat. Besides all
the food fare and rides, our coun-
ty is also showcasing the best we
have to offer in terms of local
livestock and creative crafts. This
year's Fair features entertainment
ranging from a rodeo to a demoli-
tion derby, but I think the best will
be the Youth Livestock Shows and
Auction just can not be missed.
ers Hidden inside the exhibit
tent are many creative crafts as-
sembled by local residents. There
are several non-profit organiza-
tion exhibits and commercial
vendors that wish to show and
'tell all about their products and
services. And nearby the. blue rib-
bon plants and vegetables is this
year's Extension Service Exhibit -
the focus of today's column.
The idea for the exhibit came
from a lesson presented to the
Mighty Sprouts 4-H Club a few
weeks ago. They are a new
Okeechobee County 4-H club de-
voted to learning about gardening.
They asked me to speak at their
last meeting and tell them about
the properties of soils. The topic
is important enough to share with
the entire community.

Service's local office. They work
in concert with the Okeechobee
County Soil and Water Conser-
vation District, another group of
community volunteers that are
committed to improving condi-
tions for growers, ranchers and
homeowners.
I asked N'RCS District Conser-
vationist Scott Kuipers if he had
a sample of a typical soil profile
to show the Mighty Sprouts. He
rummaged around his office and
came up with something really
neat a box full of soil samples
that were collected all over the
county when the Soil Survey field
work was done many years ago.
The whole collection consists of
about 24 different soils, and each
of these may involve as many as
7 different samples from the dif-
ferent layers of that soil taken at
depths of up to seven or eight
S feet. Our office will be displaying
five of these soils so Fair goers can

see the range of colors, and tex-
tures found in a few of our local
soils.

County Soil Survey
The USDA has produced an
extremely important document
for Okeechobee and almost ev-
ery other county in the US. It is
available to help farmers, ranch-
ers, property owners, community
planners and any one interested
in natural resources. Soil surveys
give lots of technical information
that help people learn how partic-
ular soils can best be managed.
Soil Surveys have detailed
maps of the entire county that
identify the different kinds of soils
found in that area. The rest of the
survey gives detailed descriptions
of the soils, water table depths,
native plants, suitability for agri-
culture, and a whole lot more.
And you will love the price since
you have already paid for it, it is
essentially free.
There are a few paper copies
available for those that really, real-
ly need them. However, the USDA
NRCS has posted the Okeechobee
County Soil Survey on-line. (The
Internet version of this column
has the link to the survey.) Our
exhibit at this year's Fair includes
a little bit on the kinds of informa-
tion found in the survey and how
it can be used.

Man-Made Soils
Anyone who has tried to plant
vegetables or flowers in pots us-
ing natural soils has had some
challenges. Gardeners and nurs-
ery growers have found much
greater success with container
culture when they use various
soil amendments another part
of our Extension exhibit.
Our FYN Program assistant
Angela Sachson has "taken apart"
a man-made soil and prepared a
little quiz to see if you can identify
the different kinds of "stuff" that
may be found in modern artificial
growing media. Here are a few of
the materials on display that may
be found in these mixes:
*Sphagnum moss is a dried
up plant that grows in swampy
bogs. It is harvested and dried
and sold in small bales because
it is very close to being naturally
sterile and can hold many times
its weight in water.
*Peat Moss is also made
up of bog plants, but these have

usually undergone a little bit of
decomposition. A considerable
amount of local peat moss came
from the Peace River area, while
different grades of coarseness and
quality come from Canada.
*Vermiculite A mineral
called mica consists of many flat
layers that are tightly mashed into
flat plates. When heated, a small
amount of water turns into steam
and the layers puff up to form ver-
miculite. The material is then care-
fully ground into smaller particles
which are screened into coarse
or fine sized particles. Coarse ver-
miculite is very lightweight and
very absorbent, so it can be used
in potting soils, as insulation or to
absorb spills. Gardeners know to
use fine grade vermiculite to light-
ly cover seed in the greenhouse.
*Perlite is another mineral
product but this one is a vol-
canic glass-like mineral that also
contains water. Again it is heated
and puffs up, but this one makes
white rounded puffballs that have
very little weight and lots of air
space. They are also graded by
size and have found use as insi-

lation painters know this as the

*Sand This is not your back-
yard garden variety of native
beach sand, but instead is mined
screened and cleaned. Horticul-
tural sand is usually "sharp"; in
other words, the edges of the par-
ticles are not rounded. Masonry
sand and play-sand (for sandbox-
es) are similar in texture, but may
vary in the size of the particles.
*Topsoil these materials are
a mixture of sand and well com-
posted organic material. It often
has the feel of muck, but hope-
fully it has been sterilized to kill
off weeds and disease that could
come from untreated mucks.

Putting off the hard things and the one who didn't


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph. D.+
St. Martin's Church, Clewiston
I like to delay things that are
uncomfortable or disquieting,
and I'm in good company. If I can
avoid something, more than likely
it will come up again to haunt me
- and it may be worse! Everyone
knows about putting off the trip to
the doctor and the consequences
it can bring.
There are times when you
simply have to get things done.
Whether it is a trip to the den-
tist; going to school because my
daughter was having problems,
standing besides a loved one in
court, facing surgery, having a tax
audit; these are the events that


cause people to say "Get it behind
you," "Get it over and get on with
your life." Whatever "it" may be,
we all look forward to having it
finished and done so better days
may come and we can, have a
brigher future.
As we enter this coming week,
I began to think about this story
of "getting it done" and "getting
it behind, so that better days can
come." This Sunday will be Palm
Sunday the next one Easter. Palm
Sunday is celebrated because it
commemorates a triumphal entry
into Jerusalem by the Lord. Jesus
and His disciples go up to Jerusa-
lem to celebrate the Passover, and
He institutes that sacred meal that
the faithful have been celebrating
ever since that Last Supper that


He has proclaimed we should
continue.
Following the supper comes
the darkest day in history. There
is a betrayal by someone who has
been taken in and counted among
the most intimate of friends, there
is an arrest and a trial that makes
a mockery of justice, there are in-
sults and brutality, ard then there
is a painful and tragic death. "Get
it over with?" "Get it behind you?"
"Get on with your life?" Maybe
that was what it was all about!
The Lord did not procrastinate,
He entered the city knowing what
was to come, and He "got it over
with" because that "it" would ac-
complish the reason He came. It
would enable Him to "get on with
His life" because the life would


not be ended; and would con-
tinue on, getting on with life once
more as ascended and risen. The
earthly life would be behind Him,
over with, because that would
open the door for all of us to "get
on with our lives" too.
The triumphal entry into Jeru-
salem (John 12:lff), tells about
the crowds taking palm branches
out to meet Jesus, praising Him
and saying "Hosanna" "Save,
Lord", finding a young donkey for
Him to ride in as He enters in vic-
tory, people proclaiming "Blessed
is He who comes in the Name of
the Lord" and even those who
opposed Him saying "Look, the
whole world has gone after Him!
(verse 19)"
I am sure that the Lord was


aware of what was to come; He
had predicted it. He looked at the
big picture, faced what needed
to be faced because it meant He,
and all of us too would be able to
"get on with our lives."
The triumphal entry is a sign
that there was no procrastination,
no putting off the hard moments,
but facing up and then finally be-
ing the victor over it all. Palm Sun-
day and this special coming week
that culminates in Easter is the
promise that we can "get on with
our lives" too and not only this
life but the life to come.
It is really about "getting on"
in eternity, with the Lord, forever,
and the gift of eternal life that
comes at the end of it all. The
week not about putting off, not


procrastinating, not about unnec-
essary delay, but knowing that the
hard moments will bring triumph
and be the reason for the coming
into the world. As people pray "...
thy will be done" we can think of
the events of this coming week
and say "Surely, God's will was
done" and take His witness as an
example for us all. He did what
needed to be done, and because
of it, we all have received some-
thing wonderful. May this time of
preparing for Easter be a special
time for each of us as we remem-
ber, then give thanks as the story
unfolds; this greatest love story
of all times that He so loved the
world that He gave His only-be-
gotten Son for it and for us.


The stones will shout aloud Religion News in Brief


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church, Clewiston
Jesus spent His'last Sabbath
in Bethany with His friends. The
news had already begun to cir-
culate that He was coming into
Jerusalem. The Bible narrative
reports that as He approached
the city, a great multitude came to
meet Him. Among them were not
only the citizens of Jerusalem, but
also those who had come up for
the feast of the Passover, and, of
course, the Pharisees who hated
him so. Also present wete th Ro-
man authorities who had been
put on alert during the great feast
times lest there be some kind of
revolution.
Now, the time had come and
there was acclaim. Garments lined
the road before Him; limbs from
olive and palm trees were strewn
along the way. And the shouts
of recognition were deafening:
they cried, "blessings on Him
who comes as King in the name
of the Lord." Jesus openly admit-
ted now that He was the One sent
from God. To those who would
seek to quiet His subjects along
the way, His response was one
of awful majesty. He responded,
"I tell you, if my disciples keep si-
lence the stones will shout aloud.
(Luke 19:40).


Caterpillar

By Pastor John Hicks .
First United Methodist Church,
Clewiston
Each year before Easter, we
order over a hundred caterpillars
to raise into butterflies so they can
be released by children and fami-
lies at our flower cross on Easter
Sunday morning.
They arrived last week, and as
I spent the evening using a small
paint brush to transfer caterpillars
to their individual feeding contain-
ers, oddly enough, my thoughts
turned to caterpillars. Over the
years I have learned more and
more about them as I raised them
for release.
It is amazing to watch a cat-
erpillar spin a chrysalis. It is even
more-amazing to watch a butter-
fly emerge from its cocoon! But-
terflies symbolize new life, which
make them an excellent illustra-
tion for Easter. Their emergence
from their cocoons is symbolic of
Jesus' emergence from the tomb.
But butterflies teach us other im-
portant life lessons as well.
The butterflies we get help the
environment by pollinating plants


Yet amidst all the pompt and
ceremony there was sadness in
the heart of Jesus Christ. Though
He was King, He knew that the
welcome would be fleeting. He
looked at the city and He cried,
saying, "If only you had, known,
on this great day, the way that
leads to peace! But no; it is hid-
den from your sight. (vs. 42).
The parade is over now, the
palm branches have all been
swept up and the clothes gath-
ered by those who threw them.
Jesus had been taken before the
authorities. The scene turns to a
man by the name of Peter; and
in six words that epitomize him
and the world in which we live,
he said, "I know not the man!"
These words were spoken by
a man who all of a sudden was
ashamed of the best thing that
had ever come into his life.
This can happen. You may
think it won't, but it happens.
It happens to the best of us in
those moments when we are
called upon to make some obvi-
ous stand. We somehow forget
that at one time we were shout-
ing hosannas ard spreading palm
branches in the path of the Son
of God. It happens because of
fatigue, peer pressure, and unful-
filled willingness to follow the will


of God, perhaps by a selfish desire
to run things our own way. Who
knows? But when it happens, the
same sense of sorrow that caused
Jesus to cry as He overlooked the
city of Jerusalem, causes Him to
cry anew. The pain of rejection
echoes down through the chan-
nels of time-2,000 years later!
When we follow Him, He asks
us to:
1.Make our faith real to oth-
ers. We cannot give away some-
thing we do not have, but when
we have genuinely believed and
obeyed, we begin our pilgrimage
as Christian disciples.
2.Witness to our faith. Techni-
cally, we know that a witness is
someone who is present when
something of significance hap-
pens.
When we express this dynam-
ic faith, it does two things.
(a) It fortifies the person who
gives the witness;
(b) It moves the ordinary hear-
er of the witness to acknowledge
their own need.
You hold the key to eternal life!
Not just for yourself but for many.
You must be so convinced of your
faith and in your ability that, even
all though all others remain silent,
you will continue to proclaim Je-
sus Christ as Lord.

SAVE YOUR VISION MONTH: HEALTHY VISION AT THE COMPUTER
People who sit in front of a computer for long periods of time often encounter a variety
of uncomfortable symptoms. Headaches, neck strain, backaches and wrist pain are com-
mon, but, sadly, the most prevalent symptoms of prolonged computer use-eye strain,
blurred vision and dry eye-are often overlooked. In fact, eye and vision problems are the
most frequently reported health care problems among computer users.
TIPS FOR HEALTHY, COMFORTABLE VISION AT THE COMPUTER
While decreasing time spent at a computer may not be an option, there are ways to max-
imize healthy vision for comfortable use of the computer.
Have a regular comprehensive eye exam to ensure your eyes are healthy and
that you have the correct eyeglass or contact lens prescription (if necessary).
Be certain to tell your optometrist about the computer work you do.
Wear glasses that are specifically designed to function comfortably at the com-
puter. The lenses you wear for day-to-day activities may not be the best for
working at the computer.
Rest the eyes
Blink forcefully
Use a humidifier
Instill artificial tears
After you have had a comprehensive eye examination, there are a number of things that
you can do to arrange and use the elements of your workstation to eliminate or minimize
discomfort.
WORKSTATION SETUP FOR COMFORTABLE COMPUTER USE
Feet should be flat on the floor (or on a slightly angled foot rest) with knees
bent close to or greater than 90 degrees.
Chair seat should support the legs without excessive pressure on the back of
the things.
The back should he snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists and hands should extend nearly straight from the elbow to the home
row of the keyboard.
A commonly preferred work surface height for keyboard use is about 26" as
opposed to the conventional 29" of most tables or desks.
*Place the monitor 20" 26" from your eyes, depending on the size of the mon-
itor and individual vision conditions.
The monitor and keyboard should be straight ahead.
Keep the monitor free of fingerprints and dust. Both can reduce clarity.
Place document holders close to the screen within the same viewing dis-
tance.. Keep the keyboard and monitor in line.
Adjust the keyboard tilt angle so that wrists are straight.

HEALTHY COMPUTER USE
Although the visual system faces considerable challenges when using a computer, most
issues can be solved. Remember that problems with the use of the computer cause need-
less discomfort and may rob productivity. Heeding the suggestions made here along with
those made by you r doctor of optometry, will enable you to use your computer comfort-
ably and productively.

State senator
Florida State Senator Dave Aronberg greets Chalo Nitka
parade goers March 1. The Chalo Nitka festival is an an-
nual event in Moore Haven, Glades County.


A fortunate man has much to give thanks for


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to the Glades County
Democrat
According to figures released
in the 1960s, most American
farmers invested thousands of
dollars in livestock, .machinery,
and farm buildings. And most
farmers in the United States at
that time were growing several
kinds of crops and raising live-
stock as well.
For the most part, this picture
has dramatically changed over
the last 50 years. The number, of
people involved in agriculture half
a century ago was 40 percent of
the population, now it is less than
2 percent.
It is generally believed that the
most significant reasons are that
farming has become more ef-
ficient with the advent of better
chemicals, better irrigation, better

The department recently received

On March 18, a wildfire pre-
sentation will be offered at the

Planners and officials are encour-
aged to attend. Vital information

cedures will be addressed by sev-
eral speakers.
Representatives from the

navigable system that reaches the
lake. On Nov. 19, State Senator
Dave Aronberg, State Represen-
tative Denise Grimsley, and Larry
Ford of State Senator J.D. Alexan-
der's office listened to the history
and research gathered by prop-
erty owners and local officials.
Recently, SFWMD did not
claim Pearce Canal ownership,
and suggested that fiscally con-
strained Glades County should


equipment to work every facet of
farming. The whole technology
of farming has been so upgraded
that the mechanics of farming is
taking the place of people.
In Florida in 2003, there were
44,000 farms. In 2007 that num-
ber dropped to 40,000. Of course,
the word "farm" includes a great
variety in the Sunshine State,
probably more than in most other
states. Figures are taken from the
census and include not only veg-
etable farming, but sugar cane,
nurseries, cattle, groves, fish
farms and many others.
Family farms, those having
been handed down from genera-
tion to generation, are fast fading
from the land. There are some
few remaining but the number
has drastically dwindled.
Recently, a three-generation
family farm that's been in opera-
tion for 60 years lost the father of


the farm, my brother. His sons and
their sons are now at the helm of
the operation and from all ap-
pearances this family farm will go
forward, using new technology,
new products, and new machin-
ery to continue making the farm
productive and successful.
It represents the shift in farm-
ing and remembers the old farm-
ers.
Recently at the father's funeral,
the following was read:
"Few others enjoy the freedom
that I sometimes take for granted.
On this farm, I answer to only
one man the same man I look
at in the mirror at the beginning
of every day! I spend my days do-
ing what I love and my nights sur-
rounded by family and friends. I
am truly a blessed man.
I do not own this land anymore
than it owns me. I am only its
steward. I will use the land wisely,

come up with the money to fund
yet another engineering study of
the historic canals.
Presently, the large turnout on
March 8 has greatly encouraged
Buckhead Ridge residents as well
as neighboring communities who
face the same problems around
the big lake. Glades County com-
missioners Paul Beck, Bob Giesler
and Donna Storter Long were in
attendance and support the com-
munity.
Signatures are being collected
for a: petition, and letters have
been asked to be written to the


Environmental and Natural Re-
source Council. Residents are also
asking for letters to be sent to the
Senate General Government Ap-
propriations Committee, as well
as to Florida and U.S. legislators.
"We have a right to have ac-
cess to the lake," said Ms. Brad-

and do my part to improve it. Car-
ing for it until the time comes to
pass it on to the next generation.
And I will do my part to teach
them the same respect that I have
learned for this land.
I have learned the nature of
business and strive to understand
the business of nature. I will move
steadily on. Tomorrow I will re-
turn to finish what I did not finish
today. I will rest when the work
is done.
I have never asked for recogni-
tion. Not even a thank you. I am
proud of what I do, and that is all
I need. Everyday, more people de-
pend on me and what I grow in
this land. I will not only survive; I
will succeed. I will hold my head
high, because I am a farmer ... a
very fortunate man."


Curfew
Continued From Page 1
"Crime has no boundaries,"
said Sheriff Whiddon.
He went on to explain that
there would be exceptions such
as students attending school or
church functions, and law en-
forcement officers will make ef-
forts to work with parents and
guardians. Specifically, the ordi-
nance pertains to minors under
the age of 16.
From Sunday through Thurs-
day, the curfew deadline will be
11 p.m., and on Friday and Sat-
urday the curfew will be 12 mid-
night. The city council members
agreed to formally adopt the ordi-
nance at the next meeting.
In other business, the city
council applauded the success
of the Chalo Nitka Festival held
March 1.
Each member was impressed
with the hard work that was dis-
played by individuals, communi-
ties, organizations, and local gov-
ernment agencies within Glades
County.
"I've never seen so many pull
together; everyone from every-
where helped," said Vice Mayor
Dave McGee.
The Seminole Tribe of Florida
revived .its contributions to the
festival with entertainment, pa-
rade entries and vendor booths.
"I was glad to see Seminole
Tribe participation," Mayor Bret
Whidden said.

just keep squeezing the sour or-
ange juice and turning the meat."
Never mind any seeds that fall on
the meat, they'll fall down in the
fire box when the meat is turned.
When asked how can you tell
when it's tender and done? The
"master man of Glades County
barbecue" says, "With a long-
handle fork, without which you
might get some singed fingers,
keep turning and juicing until the
meat begins to pull away from the
bones and it's all very brown and
tender."
So what was the menu at the
garden meeting? Salads of several
varieties, olives, pickles, slaw, rolls,
curried goat (unusual and unusu-
ally tasty) with rich, thick gravy,
old fashioned corn pudding made
from an ancient recipe, and more
desserts than can be named.
The brief meeting was called to
order by the out-going president
Harry Raboldt who announced
that he was stepping down from
the position of presidency and
turning the gavel over to Richard
Thatcher. At the same time he said
he would serve as Vice President.
Mrs. Evelyn Thatcher is the new
Treasurer and Diana Winiecke
continues as Secretary.
For the benefit of several guests
who are just before joining the
club, Diana told the group of sev-
eral on-going projects of the club
including the planting of trees for
deceased members over the years.
These trees have been planted at


churches, the Alvin Ward Park, the
Moore Haven City Park, the VFW,
and the Muse Fire Department. A
continuous annual project is that
of plants that are presented to fifth
graders in two schools, Moore Ha-
ven Elementary and West Glades.
The students in the project agree
to nurture the plants and then at
the appointed time they are re-
turned-to the school for judging
by garden club members at which
time prizes are awarded for first,
second, and third place winners.
Diana Winiecke said, "We do
this to try to impress upon stu-
dents the importance of taking
care of our earth, little plants grow
into big plants and it's all an im-
portant part of taking care of our
environment."
At the conclusion of the garden
party two special awards were
made. One to Harry Raboldt for
his attention to presidential details
of the club and his hard work for
the club all during the year, the
other to Larry Luckey for his un-
ending hospitality and generosity
to the club year after year. The
awards were sets of garden solar
lights for each.
The Glades County Garded
Club meets the first Tuesday of
the month,
October through March, at
10:30 a.m. in the conference room
of the Public Library in Moore Ha-
ven. Guests are always welcome.'
