Study of airpark in Muse area


Reports from road
department, public
safety and 911 office

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY A county
commissioners meeting was
held March 11 with attention
to department reports and the
study of an airpark in Muse.
Terri Helfinstien, 911 coordi-
nator, has worked with GeoCom
mapping for the last two years


in order to update emergency
response time and efficiency.
Global positioning satellites will
aid first responders, and confus-
ing duplicate names of streets
will be remedied.
Ms. Helfinstine reports that
new requests for street name
changes by residents have come
*into her office. Some of the
streets have previously had two
or three names, which have se-
riously hampered first respond-
ers when they have had to stop
and knock on doors to allevi-
ate the confusion. According


to Terri Helfinstine, at this time,
any name changes would not be
advisable due to GeoCom maps
being set up with Embarq at the
end of March.
Avant Brown, road superin-
tendent, reports that a design
change in the Crescent Acres area
of Muse will be finished soon so
school students can more safely
wait or unload at the bus stop.
Since it was not practical to plan
sidewalks on a narrow right-of-
way, the road department and
Glades County School District
began in earnest to come up

with a safe solution to the traf-
fic congestion at the bus stop.
A .safer route for students will
be in use soon, according to Mr.
Brown.
Bob Jones, public safety di-
rector, informed the board that
his department is intensely trying
to maintain efficient services for
residents even though there are
budget shortfalls, and the cost
of fuel has risen dramatically.
He asked the board to examine
the needs of the department at
a visioning workshop in May so
plans can be made for fire/res-


cue service into the next year.
"We are being very conserva-
tive out there," said Mr. Jones. ;
A zoning request from Sun-
dance Farms asks that the ag/
open and conservation use of
68.28 acres be changed to Muse
Airpark Community. The prop-
erty is on the west side of Fern-
wood Lane and south of C.R.
720; near the intersection of Car-
son Drive and Fernwood Lane.
The change would provide a

Daisy's Baby comes


to pasture


Filly? or colt? It's
too soon to tell!

By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
For weeks and weeks over a
year ago, Danny wandered the
south pasture where Daisy died
during a spring storm that left
water covering her ankles. She
was large'with her baby which
we had expected to arrive any-
time.
Danny stayed beside her but
was helpless to save her from
the pack of wild dogs that at-
tacked her. After three days in
the animal hospital, she died.
We had kept hoping her baby
could be saved but our hopes
were in vain.
For the first few days after
the attack, Danny would not


leave the spot in the pasture
under the trees. No amount
of coaxing would move him.
He simply walked 'round and
'round, most of the time with
his)head bowed almost to the
ground.
And so the search began to
find a sweetheart for this lonely
creature. One bright April day
I saw him near the fence with
his head high looking around.
Calling to him while holding
out bread and banana peel-
ings, he began to inch his way
toward me. But then, suddenly
he turned wandering back un-
der the trees ignoring my plead.
ings.
Finally after calling to him
day after day for more than a
week from that same spot by
the fence, he took the bread
and peelings from my hand

8th grader tackles science


Joshua Deese
represents Glades
County School

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN Joshua
Deese knows what he wants to
do with his life, and he has cho-
sen to get there with science as
his vehicle.
He earned a third place
award Jan. 26 for his project at
the 2008 Thomas Alva Edison
Kiwanis Science and Engineer-
ing Fair held during the Fort.
Myers Edison Festival of Lights.
When he first tried to enter the


2006 fair, he found out the ap-
plication deadline had passed.
He was determined to get into
it the next year.
Joshua Deese got organi-
ized and became the only entry
from the Glades/Hendry area
for the 2007 competition. He
received the People's Choice
Award ribbon and was given a
two week scholarship to study
science at Florida Gulf Coast
University.
"I always had a very big pas-
sion for science," he said with
a grin.
This has been a journey for
Joshua. He first heard about a
national competition called the
Discovery Channel Young Sci-


entist Challenge on TV about
three years ago. In order to be
considered a participant, a stu-
dent had to first become a final-
ist at a regional science fair.
He met Shirley Morrison
when he inquired about the
Fort Myers science fair held dur-
ing the Edison Festival of Lights.
She is the coordinator for the
Thomas Alva Edison Kiwanis
Science and Engineering Fair.
It was at this time that she in-
formed him he had missed the
application deadline for 2006.
Impressed with his deter-
mination, she took on a role as
mentor. Ms. Morrison guided

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 be snug against the seat to fit your spinal contour. Thigh-to-
trunk angle should be 90 degrees or greater.
Wrists aid 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.
SPlace 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.

Resurrection eggs, an Easter story


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Stephen was one of those spe-
cial youth who touched my life.
He was energetic. He was a lead-
er. He had an open heart for the
Lord, and he loved helping make
things happen in the youth group.
And if that wasn't enough, he had
a cute older sister. I couldn't have
asked for much more as a single
young minister.
Around Easter, God blessed
me with a program that Stephen
really took to heart. I gave every-
one, an empty Leggs container
(the ones shaped like eggs), and
challenged them to go find some-
thing that symbolized new life and
place it in their "egg". We ended
up with flowers and insects and
all kinds of offerings. Afterwards,
I showed them an empty egg, and
shared with them about the tomb
being empty and how that meant
new life for us all. Stephen liked
the illustration so much that he
started handing out empty eggs
at school, sharing with the recipi-
ents about the empty tomb and
its' meaning. He called- his eggs
"resurrection eggs".
Then, Stephen came out of
remission. In six weeks, I saw a
healthy, energetic young man


become a puffy, lethargic mass.
Although the cancer affected Ste-
phen's body, it did not affect his
spirit. He still had a positive out-
look and still loved to share res-
Surrection eggs with those around
him.
Stephen eventually slipped
into a coma and was admitted
to the hospital. One day as I was
heading to the church, I got the
inkling to stop at the hospital to
see him. As I went up to the floor,
I met Stephens' dad, who with
tears in his eyes shared, "John,
my son is dying."
With my heart in my throat, I
entered Stephen's room. Stephen
was in a pre-natalposition coma,
making whimpering sounds like
a little puppy. Not knowing what
else to do, I held Stephens' hand
and started to pray. I don't know
the time frame, but I suddenly
noticed that the whimpering had
stopped. I looked up and saw Ste-
phen looking at me. I will never
forget his look or what he told
me.
"John, I'm going to be with
Jesus. Take care of my mom and
dad."
A short while later, Stephen
did go to be with Jesus, but his
words of assurance stayed in my
heart. The church was filled to
overflowing with students and


young people giving testimony
after testimony about how Ste-
phen's faith had touched their
lives. Many came with the resur-
rection eggs that- Stephen had
given them. One of the resurrec-
tion eggs was even placed in his
coffin. Stephen's body we placed
in the earth, but Stephen's spirit
had already been claimed-he had
gone to be with Jesus.
If you ever happen to be in
Sandy Springs, Ga., stop by North
Springs United Methodist Church.
There you will find a Dogwood
tree blossoming with new life dur-
ing the Easter Season. At its base
is a plaque remembering Stephen
Haight. It's a tribute to a young
man who touched many lives not
only with his resurrection eggs,
but with his resurrection faith.
Because the tomb is empty, we
can have new life. Because the
tomb is empty our lives can be
full. Because the tomb is empty,
we can go forth as people brim-
ming with the resurrection love of
God. Be graceful in spirit, hopeful
in word, faithful in deed. Live for
the risen Christ as Christ lives in
you. And remember, when the
day comes, as people with resur-
rection faith, we can claim and
proclaim with full assurance, "I'm
going to be with Jesus!"


The book, the lamb, and the song!


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
Resurrection Sunday, of all
days, should be a time of praise to
Jesus Christ for His mighty victory
over sin and death in our behalf.
This is why our Choir is present-
ing the Musical, "The Old Rugged
Cross Made The Difference". Such
praise is a dominant theme in
heaven. Nowhere in all Scripture
is a more magnificent hym than
John's "Worthy Is The Lamb" in
Revelation 5:9-14.
From the content of John's
Hymn of praise comes the thought
I would .like to share with you.
From this chapter John tells of a
mysterious book and a mighty
Lamb, and a magnificent song.
The book that John saw was
sealed and this caused him to
weep. Some books in God's li-
brary include: all the deeds of'
personal human history; all the
+ demands of God's laws; all the ex-
perience of God's beloved; all the
names of those redeemed by the
Blood (Ps. 69:28; Gal. 3:10; Mal.
3:16; Phil. 4:3). Some books bring
us sorrrow: sorrow of unresolved
inequities, sorrow of unknown or
fearful future; and, sorrow of un-
certain salvation. John's sorrow is


all mankind's sorrow. A part from
the Lamb and the song there is
sorrow; and even the Bible itself
is a sealed book apart from Jesus.
But John's story does not end
with weeping.
"Weep not! An elder lifts
John's vision, "Behold the Lion!
Lion, Lamb, Root Judah! Slain
in meekness, and patience, now
Christ is seen as mighy and pow-
erful, striking terror to the hearts
of His enemies while bringing
comfort to His people. One
nature of the Lamb stands out
above others, it has been slain!
At the throne, identified with God
himself, it yet bears the marks of
having died! The heart of Resur-
rection truth is very near this
point! The Lamb, identified as "of
Judah" and yet having seven eyes
and seven horns of the sevenfold
Spirit of God, is able to open the
sealed book!
The Song is begun by the re-
deemed (vs 9) The fiew song is
of Redemption! And while the
angels are quick to join in praise,
they do not have part in the very
firs chorus, for the heart of Resur-
rection is not the return of sprint-
ime, the eternal conservation
of life, or the beauty of flowers
and birdsong, but it is the fact of
bloody battle and stunning victo-


ry, of alienated mankind brought
into fellowship with a holy God.
And at the very foot of the throne
becoming a great family that in-
cludes every tongue, people,
and nation. This song, picked up
by heaven's chorus, praises the
Lamb because He alone is worthy
to open the sealed book. Christ is-
our key to the mysteries of faith,
of death, eternity, and redemp-
tion! The song is actually begun
before the books are opened. We
may praise Jesus now; and even
before we know the future, we
may know Him with certainty!
And we may begin now, joining
the myriads around the throne
as we sing: "CROWN HIM...the
Lamb upon the Throne!"
But before we sing a hymn of
praise to Christ, are there sealed
books that cause you to weep? Is
the Bible a sealed book to you?
Do you have a deep concern
about death and about the future?
You can ha\e victory in Jesus by
believing the Gospel, repenting of
sins, confession His name before
men, and being baptized for re-
mission of sins to receive the Holy
Spirit and begin a New Life! The
message of Resurrection Sunday
is "'Weep not! The Lion of the
tribe of Judah has prevailed!

Easter-He's alive; because of it, we're alive too


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
She had always been a
"bleeder" with the slightest cut
meaning a possible hemorrhage.
The day came when she needed
surgery that was unavoidable
and the risks were great. With
the proper medications and care
to control bleeding, and possi-
bilities explained, 'the operation
was scheduled. She told me
about waking up in the recovery
room and shouting "I'm alive!
I'm alive!" and I can certainly
imagine the excitement and joy.
She was on the other side of
death and there was a new and
better life ahead. This has always
been a "resurrection story" for
me. It is also our story-the story
of what Easter is all about.
The biblical account is about
two women who do not expect
to find their Lord alive (Mark
16:1ff) and go to His tomb to
anoint a dead body. They are
sure He is dead; they bring spices
to help with preservation of the
person who once was among
them. The Lord meets and
greets them,(Matthew 28:9) and
the two women "Mary Magde-
lene and "the other Mary," pro-
claimed to all they encountered
"He's alive!, He's alive!" With
that news, there is the promise
that we too shall live with Him,
that we too are alive with Him.
There is an account in John's
gospel (chapter 11, v. Iff) that is
a prelude to the Easter story; it
is about raising Lazarus from the
dead. I've descended into that
tomb in Bethany where he was
supposed to have lain, dead, for
four days and can envision the
finality of death in that darkened,
damp, underground cave about
two stories below the earth. If he
was there for four days, Lazarus
was really dead! The story sur-
rounding 'his death reports that
his sisters, Martha and Mary, met
the Lord and told Him, "Lord, if
you were here, my brother would
not have died (John 11:21)." He
has died, though, and was dead
before Jesus arrived. Jesus went
to the tomb, calls for Lazarus to
come out, and he literally returns
to life after being dead for four
days. This is a prelude of things
to come, so that the Marthas and
Marys of the world may not be
as surprised when they see the
rjien, Lord a ac acknowledge
"He's alive!, He's alive!" I've
shared a new life with many; in


their getting married, in their be-
ing healed, in their overcoming
seemingly impossible obstacles,
in their return from wars, in the
births of their children, in find-
ing successes in careers, in the
changes brought by gradua-
tions; all gifts of a new life and
all celebrations of an "Easter."
These things are all preludes to
things to come; life does not end
with life here but continues be-
yond this life: that's the story and
promise of Easter. The little "res-
urrections" that we see.when
life is made better, when we are
made whole, when renewed,
when given another opportuni-
ty; all of these things point to the
life to come when at last this life
seems over but in reality is only
the beginning.
A great doctor. was once
asked why he underook to study
medicine. He replied that he ob-
served every creature sought to
continue life; even the smallest
one-celled creature would sub-


divide when part of it was dying
so that life might continue. He
said that this witness was a key
for him; life was intended to go
on and he wanted to be a part
of it.
The Christian story of Easter
is that story; that life is intended
to go on, and that God has a
part in it for each of us. The gift
of Easter is that it is a personal
story; each person who believes
will find new life and new hope.
The Lord has created us to seek
life, to preserve it, to respect it, to
cherish it. He also promises that
it does not come to an end even
when it stops on Earth. The gift
and promise of Easter is God's
sign to us; He's alive and be-
cause of it, we're alive too for
all eternity, forever. May you have
a happy and blessed Easter, and
share a special time in your lives
with all those who are special to
you!

Public use area to add acres thanks to management plan


WEST PALM BEACH-To sus-
tain the progress being made in
restoring the Kissimmee River and
its environmentally vital flood-
plain, the South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD)
Governing Board approved an
updated five-year management
plan for the 56,713 acres of public
lands along the river.
The management plan de-
scribes the historical, physical,
and ecological aspects of the Kis-
simmee River Management Areas'
as well as stewardship activities
needed to properly manage these
lands, which were acquired for
4


the restoration effort. The plan
provides guidance to District land
managers on effective and consis-
tent land management practices
as well as specific goals and ob-
jectives.
"The Kissimmee River Resto-
ration is restoration in the purest
sense," said Harkley Thornton,
SFWMD Governing Board mem-
ber. "We want the ecosystem to
function as it did long before any
of us arrived in Florida."
The presence of invasive plants
and animals as well as safety pre-
cautions necessary for controlling
lightning-sparked fires requires


planning on how to mimic natural
processes. District land managers
rely on the management plan for
ways to achieve this. The 141-
page document is available to the
public via the SFWMD website at
www.sfwmd.gov.
In a related effort, the SFWMD
Governing Board also passed a
resolution requesting coordina-
tion with the Florida Fish and
Wildlife Conservation Commis-
sion to add the 3,722-acre Chan-
dler Slough to the Kissimmee
River Public Use Area. This will
create specific public recreation
opportunities in Chandler Slough


and define the rules and regula-
tions governing hunting, camp-
ing, hiking and other public ac-
tivities encouraged on this land
purchased for Kissimmee River
Restoration. Chandler Slough is
located east of the channelized
Kissimmee River (C-38) and south
of U.S. Highway 98.
Kissimmee River Restoration
is an ongoing effort to restore
an estimated 40 square miles of
river and floodplain ecosystem
at the headwaters of America's
Everglades. All lands have been
acquired for the multi-phase
project, which will restore 26,500

Torry Island, March 17, Rob-
ert Fox, of Jupiter, is only 13 but
he's already a candidate for the
coveted rank of Eagle Scout the
highest honor in scouting.
On Saturday, March 15, the
Student at Bak Middle School
o the Arts completed his Eagle
Scout project by planting native,
wetland trees on Torry Island ,
near Belle Glade The 700-acre
tract of abandoned farmland is
located at the southern end of
Lake Okeechobee Robert assist-
ed about 60 volunteers, including
numerous Boy Scouts, in an effort
to plant pond apple and cypress
trees on the island.
The planting effort was orga-
nized by the non-profit Arthur R.
Marshall Foundation, a West Palm
Beach-based group dedicated to
preserving the Florida Everglades.
The project is part of a joint en-
deavor between the Foundation
and the City of Belle Glade to turn
Torry Island into an eco-tourism
destination.
"Last year, while participating
in the Marshall Foundation proj-
ects, I was inspired to continue
working with them for my Eagle
project. I enjoy being a part of the
Foundation's efforts.. to improve
wetland environments, and, be-
cause of that inspiration, I am
considering working for the envi-
ronment as my life's work,", said
Robert, who is a member of Jupi-
ter Boy Scout Troop 173.

John Marshall said he was happy
that Robert chose to plant trees
for his Eagle Scout project.
"It's wonderful to see young
people working to improve South
Florida "s environmental future.
The wetland that Robert is help-
ing to create will clean water and
provide wildlife habitat for gener-
ations, making this a meaningful
and lasting Eagle Scout project,"
he said.
In addition to planting trees,
the scouts spent time weeding
and maintaining some of. the
thousands of young trees already
on the island.

Daisy
Continued From Page 1
and let me rub between his ears.
Before long he began braying,
frequently, and loud! Do donkeys
develop spring fever? Whatever
the reason for braying, he kept
it up until one day in early June,
the two sister donkeys we'd been
looking for arrived.
The three of them did not take
to each other immediately. Danny
stayed far away from them in an-
other pasture. But eventually, day
by day, they moved closer to each
other, especially when I'd go to
that same place by the fence with
bread and banana peelings along
with melon rinds.
Right away after the arrival of
the sisters, Daisy and Deena, we
noticed that Daisy was obviously
"with child." We began to count
the months trying to guess when
the big event, would take place.
The rest of the year spent itself out
and the New Year arrived. Still no
baby donkey not even through
January and February.
I began to wonder if she'd
changed her mind and was sim-
ply becoming more and more
obese.
The first week in March, she
and her sister disappeared. Again,
Danny was alone in the pasture,
wandering around as if he were
lost. Walking the fence line along-
side the big swamp, no sign of
the two of them was to be seen.
Three days of being absent wasn't
their habit.
Then, the heavens split open
and down came the rain and I
kept thinking, the would-have-
been April showers were all com-


Daisy and her newborn, Dixie.


ing at one time and that in March!
But not for long, and I could not
help but wonder if another pack
of wild dogs had gotten to them
as they did to Dolly.
When the rain stopped and
the clouds blew away, again and
again, as usual, I headed for that
special spot by the fence with their
treats. Not a one of them could
be seen. I called and coaxed over
and over and was on the verge
of giving up when suddenly two
big ears appeared just above the
fronds of one of the biggest pal-
metto islands. Daisy! She gingerly
tip-toed far enough out that her
shoulders could be seen and then
legs! Four of them instead of two!
In seconds, she turned, holding
her pretty head high, and brayed
so loud I jumped from sheer sur-
prise.
She made an unhurried leap,
looked back at the island from
where she had just emerged, and

by that time little Daisy Baby had
caught up with her, nuzzling its
mother's nose and neck. Baby
is marked just the same as her
mother, the same soft caramel
and ivory with white face, feet
and nose.
Very bewildered I kept won-
dering how this newborn just 3
days old, could be so big! So big,
in fact, that "it" had to kneel on its
knees to nurse its mother's two
small spigots!
Then the show began! One
chasing the other, mother and
baby, back and forth, round and
round with ballet grace.
I kept calling and swinging
the bag of treats which up to that
time was all the enticement they
needed. But not now. Mother and
baby were too busy getting to
know each other in the big green
world they now called home.
"Aunt" Deena, Daisy's sister, is
no where near her delivery date,


so we still have a lot of watching
and waiting for another baby to
come and live all over the "green
sea" where there is velvet-like
grass and heavy green cover of
the palmetto islands that shed
water as off a tir roof, that affords
dense cool'shade from heat of
sun, wards off harsh winds and
provides all sorts of little holes
and hollows to hide in when nec-
essary. And if they all need to hide
at the same time, there's the big
swamp where they could live for
weeks without being found.
For months and months Daisy
had resembled a huge balloon on
both sides and under her middle.
But now, all at once it seems, she
is slim and trim and leaping like
a dancer performing her long
awaited debut.
Daisy's off-spring is too big to
be called Baby but so far the right
name eluded me until early this
morning just as the sun was spill-
ing over the cypress and the pond.
In this new-green world washed
with sunbeams and songbirds all
about and fish jumping as if they
were on a trampoline, suddenly
that honored old song so dear to
the hearts of Southerners seemed
to be floating in from all direc-
tions. Instantly the newborn's
name became "Dixie".
And so now there's Danny,
Daisy, newborn Dixie, and Dana,
Grassy Run's little family of don-
keys.

Memorial honors area fallen soldiers


Vietnam Veterans
Memorial of South-
west Florida

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
MOORE HAVEN On March 9,
the Vietnam Veterans Memorial
of Southwest Florida was dedi-
cated to military service people
who lost their lives in the war.
Seventy-six names from five
counties are etched on the black
granite monument. The names
are those of Lee, Charlotte, Col-
+ lier, Hendry and Glades Counth
men who were killed in service
to our country during the contro-
versial war.
It took nearly a decade to plan,
research and fund the memorial
that now stands in Fort Myers at
the Midpoint Bridge. Approxi-
mately 2,000 people attended the
dedication.
The memorial simply consists
of three large black granite slabs
standing upright with 76 names
engraved on them. There is a
battlefield cross made of bronze
positioned near the middle. In
a combat area, the battlefield
cross is a quickly erected tribute
to a fallen comrade, whereby the
bayonet end of the soldier's rifle
is stuck in the ground and his hel-
met is placed on top.

Lucas Century of Sanibel. He
also did the work on the national
monument in Washington D.C.

The Vietnam Veterans Memorial of Southwest Florida was dedicated March 9 in Fort Myers
by the Midpoint Bridge. It honors 76 servicemen from a five county area who lost their lives.


Organizers feel fortunate that Mr.
Century contributed to the effort.
Craig Tonjes, v\eleran, coor-
dinated. the project, and during
his research he was amazed to
learn that in the 1960 census the
five county area had only about,
94,000 residents. He believes that
76 fallen brothers-in-arms was a
considerable loss to southwest
Florida at that time, when consid-
ered on a per capita basis.
"I feel that Vietnam memorials
are particularly important as time
moves on. In history texts the war
is little more than referenced as.

road department are working on
a solution for a safer bus stop site.
Last year bus stop sites changed
because of the enforcement of the
sexual offender residency law.
Residents and the traffic safety
team were concerned, because
the relocation of the bus stop had
more traffic congestion. Safety is-
sues were addressed at a county
commissioners meeting, and with
the Department of Transportation
(DOT). Thereafter, planning and
legwork by the school district and
' road department began quickly.
"They got right on it," said An-

He went on to explain that
these brief text references are a
disservice not only to those who
fought, but particularly to those
who died in service to this nation.
Mr. Tonjes hopes that 100 years
from now school children will
still visit the memorial and won-
der what makes these men so
important. Perhaps their curiosity
will cause them to ask questions.
Mr. Tonjes found out that
Glades County had about 4,000
residents during the Vietnam era.

take up to 90 days to complete
the assessment, and the DOT will
report back with its findings.
A Buckle-Up awareness cam-

One soldier from Moore Haven
has his name engraved on the
newly dedicated memorial. That
service man was Michael Joseph
Thielen who perished in 1968,
and was buried at the Ortona
Cemetery of Glades County. His
mother, Margie Thielen, still re-
sides in Moore Haven.
Mr. Tonjes is asking for sub-

erans that may be engraved on
the back of the stone memorial.

Joshua through the paper work
process, and paid close attention
to his ideas. She saw him work
hard, follow through on his plans,
and passionately strive to achieve
a place with the finalists in the
2008 science fair, which show-
cased 800 student finalists.
The middle schooler devel-
oped a project for environmental
science dealing with the effects of
TPO4 (phosphorus) and eutro-
phication in Lake Okeechobee.


In order to study how the fertilizer
element depletes oxygen from the
water, he conducted experiments
with samples from the lake. He
also worked with chemists at
South Florida Water Management
District and the U.S. Army Corps
of Engineers.
SJoshua Deese placed third in
the environmental science cat-
egory, and was given the National
Oceanic and Atmospheric Ad-
ministration Award He received
the People's Choice Award for a
second year in a row. This is an
award nominated by the public
attending the fair.
He was given a nomination


letter for the 2008 Society for Sci-
ence and the Public (SSP) Middle
School Program, formally known
as the Discovery Channel Young
Scientist Challenge. This is the sci-
ence competition Joshuawatched
on TV, three years earlier. With a
nomination letter, he will be able
to apply for entry into the pro-
gram. Shirley Morrison was very
pleased with his achievements
and cheerful spirit.
"He has a genuine, happy
heart; and he wants to do good
things for everyone in his life,"
she said.
Joshua Deese's dad works as
a sergeant for the Glades County


Sheriff's Office, and his mom
works in Clewiston as a family
support worker. He is also .inter-
ested in business, computers,
government, reading and Tae

Joshua is happy that Moore
Haven High School has taken an
interest in his work, and he advis-
es his classmates to keep follow-
ing their dreams.
