Ideas discussed for waterways


Glades County
officials talk
to agencies

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY A small
conference was held in Clewis-
ton concerning regional water
and navigation issues. Com-
missioners Russell Echols and
Donna Storter Long were in at-
tendance March 19 to represent
the needs'.of county government


and its constituents.
Earlier in March, the Buck-
head Ridge community in north-
east Glades County held a meet-
ing to begin petitions and a letter
writing campaign in order to em-
phasize their urgent request to
restore navigation to the Pearce
Canal. Other lake communities
are closely watching this civic ac-
tivity because there are the same
problems with the Old Moore
Haven Canal, Harney Pond Ca-
nal and Indian Prairie Canal.
The conference brought
state, federal and county entities


together to examine common
goals. The South Florida Water
Management District (SFWMD),
United States Army Corps of
Engineers (COE), Florida Inland
Navigation District (FIND), and
Department of Environmental
Protection (DEP) were there. A
Martin County commissioner,
Michael DiTerlizzi, was also at
the meeting.
Presently, it is uncertain which
state agencies can help, or how
funding will be generated.
Glades County Commissioner
Russell Echols spoke to COE of-

ficials and learned that they also
have detrimental navigation
problems with the Okeechobee
Waterway, which is a shipping
channel connecting the Gulf
coast with the east coast of Flor-
ida.
COE projects for the shipping
lanes lack enough federal mon-
ey. Mr. Echols commented that
the agency expressed concern
for a shared situation.
FIND officials recommended
that Glades and Hendry coun-
ties seek to become a part of the
west coast division, according


to county commissioners. Per-
haps Glades County could then
have an interlocal agreement
with FIND, and ask for some
assistance. A FIND representa-
tive also mentioned pursuing
permits even though it can take
months to get one, because they

Spring cometh


to Glades County


By Barbara Oehlbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
At daybreak, as the wren
broke the winter silence with
his operatic arpeggios, it was
obvious that spring had comedy
in the night.
The first sights and sounds
and pungent smells at day-
break were everywhere. He
usually flits quietly here and
there in the last days of win-

thinking that he's trying to de-
cide if he'll stay, but now that


he's madehis announcement
in song there's no doubt. He's
picked his paradise and is look-
ing for a sweetheart.
And once he finds her,
they'll be here for the season.
The looking for a home site is
a marvel to witness. But first he
must be about the sweet pur-
suit of finding his love.
The ridgepole at the south
end of the house is a favorite
perch for his calling to her.

such melodic yearning it's a

A Glades County pleasure stop


Small library in
Ortona is open
Wednesday
By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
ORTONA This small, riv-
erside community offers a nice
view of the Caloosahatchee,
and it gives visitors and resi-
dents a chance to discover lo-
cal Florida history at the Ortona
Library.
The library was founded in
1992, and is mostly funded by
individuals,, organizations and
a grant from eight years ago.
Sometimes, $100 is allocated
from Glades County. The facil-


ity is maintained by volunteers,
and is open only on Wednes-
days at the Ortona Community
Center from 3 to 6 p.m.
Visiting hours may seem
brief, but view it as a rare and
pleasant opportunity to explore
Old Florida history, natural sci-
ence and vivid fiction.
The founders of the library
were members of the Ortona
Community Association. Even
though the library is a separate
entity, it reports to the associa-
tion. The Glades County public
library in Moore Haven is aware
of Ortona's needs and can offer
duplicate books when avail-
able. Most of the books, how-
ever, are from donations.
According to Fran Way ,


director, the organization has
been part of the Charlotte
Glades library system and has
benefited from their expertise;
yet they are not required to
have the same procedures as
the larger facilities. The goal is
to meet the needs of the com-
munity.
The library uses simple
methods without a computer-
ized lending system. Volunteers
hope to be part of the Heart-
land Library system in the near
future.
Luckily, the Ortona Library
received a grant of $5,000 eight
years ago to furnish them with
a computer so residents could

Easter; Always to be recalled and celebrated


By Rev Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
With Easter behind us, it's all to
tempting to put it out of mind. Yet
the Easter story is an ever-present
story. It gives hope to all who hear
it; about rising beyond this life,
about new life, about fulfillment
of dreams and hopes. It is an af-
firmation of the hope of humanity
since time immemorial, almost
beyond belief and yet true. There
can be nothing greater when we
think about all that Easter means.
' Like any good thing, there are
always those who like to detract
from the joy and happiness of
great events and people. Someone
told about the mother whose son
came home and told the family he
had won a new car. She replied
'"The taxes alone will drive us to


the poor house." Sometimes,
those who detract have a vested
interest in keeping good news
from being true or believed.
I've heard many interpreta-
tions of scriptures or history;
with proponents of viewpoints
saying that they're not "interpret-
ing" but "clarifying" or some such
other defense. I wonder about the
vested interests of such claimants
who expound what they believe
to be the "real truth." The Exodus
story is a large part of Old Testa-
ment history; it is a footnote in
Egyptian historical annals. Others
will share their theories on "who
really won the war," or "what re-
ally happened at Pearl Harbor,"
or some such other claims. The
Easter story, unfortunately, is no
different.
Following the Easter.story with
all of its' beautiful and wonderful
meanings, there came a group of


religious leaders of their day who
wanted to quash it. Some of the
guards who were assigned to
watch the tomb where Jesus was
buried and see that the body was
not stolen went "and told the chief
priests all that had taken place
(Matthew 28:11ff)."
This could not be! "And when
they had assembled with the el-
ders and had taken counsel, they
gave a sum of money to the sol-
diers and said,'Tell people, His
disciples came by night and stole
Him away while we were asleep'
(vss 12-13)." And to further give
credence to their deceit, they
promise "And if this comes to the
governor's ears, we will satisfy
him and keep you out of trouble
(v. 14)."
The story was spread as the el-
ders wanted it; it exists to this day
among those who do not want
tobelieve or have a vested interest


in some other interpretation. Cov-
er-up tactics are not new! When I
encounter such stories and such
"interpretations" I always look at
who has what interest at heart in
their version of the "truth."
For the early Christians, there
was no interest other than to share
the truth, they were poor and dis-
organized but the power of the
message led to it's proclamation.
For others, this was not the case;
their interests were from keeping
others from even considering the
message of the disciples of Jesus'
followers. They were even willing
to pay to have others lie about
what they had seen. They will
lie themselves to the governor if
need be; to keep him from explor-
ing what really was true about this
special and wonderful story. They
can take advantage of their posi-
tion, their political power, their
prestige to further their cause.


Eventually the truth will come to
the light of day, as it has for two
thousand years now.
The life of Paul the Apostle is
a great example of someone who
had a vested interest in his viewp-
point, but another interpretation
came to him as he went about
persecuting the faithful Christians
of his day.
The Easter story has lived be-
cause it has come to the light of
day in spite of all who would sup-
press it and say otherwise. In spite
of efforts to detract from it, to see
that it is denied, it shines through
to all of God's creatures. I believe
this is how the Lord wants it and
what is intended. Easter 2008
has now passed in one sense;
yet we celebrate it each Sunday
(Every Sunday in reality is a "little
Easter"-a day of celebrating when
the Lord rose from the grave), and
the truth and power of the story is


recalled once more.
We have a choice, I suppose, to,
listen to those who distract from
the joy and beauty of the story, of-
the' personal meaning for each of-
us, for this sign of great love from'
God; or to see it as the faithful
and the Lord Himself revealed it'
to us. Paul was later to write "And
if Christ has not been raised, our.
preaching is useless and so is your?
faith...But Christ has indeed been,
raised from the dead, the firstfruits,
of those who have fallen asleep (1
Corinthians 15:12...20)."
My lot is cast with those who,
interpret the story with beauty,,
love, faith, hope, charity, good-,
ness. That is what Easter is about.
It's truth deserves to be remem-
bered more than once a year,
or even once a week, it is for us'
always.


Finding gold in dumpster diving Religion News
First Christian to host


By Pastor John Hicks
First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
I have a confession to make.
I've been known to "dumpster
dive". I'm a firm believer in "one
person's trash is another's trea-
sure". Truth be known, I have
mellowed out over the years, but
recently God led me to go once
more into a garbage bin.
It began months ago with God
getting into my face to take bet-
ter care of His temple called my
body. God got my attention, and
through lifestyle change and exer-
cise, I have managed to drop over
125 pounds.
Life has taught me that there
are consequences with every deci-
sion and action, and such was the
case with my weight loss. I found
that my pants weren't the only
thing falling off. My ring finger is
thinner and my wedding ring was
loose. One night at bedtime, I
realized that my ring was not on


my finger. I had been all over the
church that day and at the fellow-
ship dinner that night the ring
could be anywhere.
I arose early the next morning
and searched the grass and asphalt
areas where I had traversed the
day before. I even went through
the garbage. No luck. I had re-
signed myself that it was gone and
to convince myself that it was only
a piece of metal.
Tvo nights later, God gave me
a vision in a dream. (Yes, God still
works that way!) In the dream, I
saw my ring in a pan of meat trim-
mings from the Wednesday night
dinner. The next morning was a
work day at the church, and I went
directly to the dumpster. I located
the bag in my dream, and just for
good measure, pulled, out all of
the other garbage bags from the
dinner. A friend helped by dump-
ing the bag from my dreams onto
the parking lot, and I directed him
to the pan of trimmings. The ring
was right where I had seen it in my


dream!
God still answers prayers-great
and small-and miracles still hap-
pen! In reflection of this miracle
in my life, I have realized that life
is full of lost treasures in the gar-
bage we experience daily. Each of
us has strengths. Each of us has
places God can use us most effec-
tively. Each of us, by connecting
with God can find gold even in the
midst of life's dumpsters;
Some years ago a radio station
invited people to call in and tell
them the first thing they had said
that morning when they awoke.
It was funny. One guy said, "Do
I smell coffee burning?" Another
one said, "Oh no, I'm late for
work." A woman confessed that
her first words were, "Honey, did
I remember to put the dog out last
night?" and you could hear a muf-
fled curse in the background and a
man growling, "No, you didn't."
One morning, the station phone
rang and the perky DJ said, "Good
morning, you're on the air. What


was the first thing you said when
you rolled out of bed this morn-
ing?" A voice with a Bronx accent
replied, "Hear O Israel, the Lord
our God is one; you shall love the
Lord your God with all your heart,
with all your soul, with all your
mind, and with all your strength."
The caller was reciting the Shema
(Deuteronomy 6:4), so prized by
our Jewish friends. The radio host
did not know how to handle it. He
was looking for junk and instead
encountered gold. There was a
.moment of embarrassed silence,
then the announcer cut to a com-
mercial.
How do you start your day?
With a moan about how difficult
your life is or with a prayer turning
to God? The garbage we face or
the treasures we have lost do not
have to determine our happiness
or our success. What we need is to
orient our lives in alignment with
God and let Him direct us in the
path we need to follow. Do this,
and we will find our gold.


Call on Him when you're 'out of order!'


By Jackie Miller, minister
First Christian Church,
Clewiston
When your material posses-
sions fail to function properly (the
- electric range won't heat, the air-
conditioner won't cool, and so
on) you speak of them as "our of
order," and you call the proper ser-
vice man to have them repaired.
Sometimes a life will be "out
of order"' Here, too, it is necessary
to get repairs from a Master Work-
man who can straighten out the
difficulty, no matter, how large or
complicated.
Even is your life is just a little
bit out of adjustment, you will find
that this One can help you make
the minor changes necessary for
the more orderly functioning of
your affairs.
Sometimes a slight adjust-


ment in your thinking about other
people will help achieve a better
balance in your relationships. Re-
member that the Master Work-
man made everyone in His image
and likeness. Look for the good,
and you will find it easy to adjust
your thinking to a higher vision of
another. Then watch his attitude
toward you change, too.
Maybe your needed adjust-
ment is in the realm of finances.
Here is one way to establish or-
der in your thinking about mate-
rial resources: enlarge your vision
to know that when God created
the universe, He made plenty of
everything! Look around you.
See the unlimited supply of little
things. Think of the leaves of the
trees, each one different. Think
of the birds, each one clothed in
feathers of different hues. Think of
the grass and grains of sand. Try


to count the stars!
"If God so clothes the grass of
the field, which today is alive and
tomorrow is thrown into the oven,
will he not much more clothe'you,
O men of little faith?"
Adjust your thinking to abun-
dance, and you will always have
plenty to meet every need. Per-
haps you will bring a disease or
some physical difficulty to the
Master Workman for needed at-
tention. The Intelligence that
made your body has all the kno-
whow necessary to repair it. Ad-
just your thinking to God's perfect
ideas of health, harmony, and
wholeness, and you will find that
a real change will begin to mani-
fest in your body.
In many cases, all that is
needed to repair a life that is "out
of order" is a little application of
the oil of love. Love has a way


of lubricating relationships with
other persons, so that they oper-
ate smoothly, without friction. It
also prepares the way for greater
prosperity to' come into one's life.
The person who loves and is open
to all the good of God will always
have plenty. More than one physi-
cal difficulty has been literally dis-
solved by the oil of love. Friction
in the body also succumbs to the
lubrication of God's love.
Nothing is hopeless. No case,
is beyond the help of the Master
Workman. The manufacturer of

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 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.

tered their home-grown produce
and ornamental plants at the fair.
Here's the list of top exhibitors in
the Fruit and Vegetable contest:
*Youth Market Garden Bas-
ket: first place Joey Allen; second
place Joshua Canevari
*Youth Produce Plate (3 of
one kind): first place Joshua Ca-
nevari (cherry tomatoes)
*Youth Biggest Vegetable con-
test: first place: Joey Allen (onion,

Adult Biggest Vegetable con-
test: first place: Janice Trent (cab-
bage, 7.2 pts); 2nd place Angela
Sachson (cherry tomato 2.1 pts.)
I looked at the results of last
year's biggest vegetable contest
and found that the records from
the 2007 contest still stand. The
largest vegetable contest involves
multiplying the weight by a point
value so that big cabbages can get
"a-head" of smaller tomatoes.
New to the fair were our or-
namental contests, where potted
plants are judged on their qual-
ity. Here are the winners among
those exhibitors:
*Cacti and Succulents: Youth
first place Jordan Canevari (Pen-
cil Cactus). Adult first place David
Hench (Succulent & Cactus Dish
Garden); second place Angela
Sachson (large-leaf succulent);
third place Janice Trent (flower-

Upcoming Programs
This Monday night will be a
green night here at the Extension
office. The monthly meeting of
the Okeechobee Garden Club
will enjoy a presentation by our
FYI Program Assistant, Angela
Sachson. She will give a brief


overview at 6 p.m. of what Flor-
ida's new Fertilizer Rule will do to
remove phosphorous from turf
fertilizers and keep from moving
from local lawns to the Lake.
The Garden Club will be im-
mediately followed by the month-
ly meeting of the Orchid Club at
7 p.m. Marilyn Marr and Peggy
Shaw from the Martin County Or-
chid Society will highlight some
of their group's activities, and will
be available to help solve prob-
lems for local orchid enthusiasts.
They have promised am orchid
basket which will be raffled off at
the end of the meeting.
The weekly Spring Gardening
ShortCourse will take this week
off, but will return next Wednes-
day April 4, with presentations
on Vegetable Gardening and
Fruit Gardening. The conferences
start at 9:30 a.m. and end by 2:30
p.m. here at our Extension office.
Future topics will be wildlife on
April 16 and Lawns on April 23.
Call and reserve you spot!
Reading up on Green
I've rediscovered two valuable
informational resources for local
gardeners that are worth sharing.
The first is a classic book pro-
duced by recently retired Orange
County Horticulture Agent Tom
MacCubbin, Month-by Month
Gardening in Florida. He's recent-
ly revised the whole book. Here
are a few examples from his sec-
tion on Annuals:
SMarch is a good time to
cleaning out the tired beds of
winter annuals and preparing the
beds for more heat and drought
tolerant flowering plants.
*Rethink the irrigation system


to be sure that annual beds are
not going to be overwatered with
lawn sprinklers heads. Drip and
microjet heads on separate zone
are better for flowers and for con,
serving water too.
*Fertilize with slow release
granular fertilizers rather that the
soluble products that don't last
long and can sneak into water-
ways if overdone.
Another resource I'd recom-
mend is the monthly magazine
Florida Gardening. I've met the
authors, Kathy and Wae Nelson
several times at plant shows and
events all over Florida. They seek
to publish down to earth articles
with wit and wisdom for Sun-
shine State gardeners. The April/
May issue has some great guid-
ance about growing Sunflow-
ers, Florida bulbs, bananas, plug
ideas on drought condition youi
lawn and creating great plant
combinations in the flower gar-
den. You can come by and take
a peek at our office copy, look for
your own copy in your favorite
bookstore, or even have it sent
you're your mailbox.
I've placed more information
on our Okeechobee web page,
http://okeechobee.ifas.ufl.edu:
If you need additional informa-
tion on these horticultural topics,
please email us at.okeechobee@
ifas.ufl.edu or call us at 863-763-
6469. Local residents can stop by
our office at 458 Hwy 98 North
in Okeechobee, and visit our
Okeechobee County Master Garr
deners from 1 to 3 p.m. on Tues-
day afternoons

Glades County pleasure stop


Small library in Orto-
na open Wednesdays

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
ORTONA This small, riv-
erside community offers a nice
view of the Caloosahatchee, and
it gives visitors and residents a
chance to discover local Florida
history at the Ortona Library.
The library was founded in
1992, and is mostly funded by
individuals, tiny organizations
and a grant from eight years ago.
Sometimes,. $100 is allocated
from Glades County The facility
is maintained by volunteers, and
is open only on Wednesdays at
the Ortona Community Center
from 3-6 p.m. Visiting hours may
seem brief, but view it as a rare
and pleasant opportunity to ex-
plore Old Florida history, natural
science and vivid fiction.
The founders were members
of the Ortona Community Asso-
ciation. Even though the library is
a separate entity, it reports to the
association. The Glades County
public library in Moore Haven is
aware of Ortona's needs and can
offer duplicate books when avail-
able. Most of the books, however,
are from donations.
According to Fran Way, direc-
tor, the organization has been part
of the Charlotte Glades library
system and has benefited from
their expertise; yet they are not
required to have the same proce-
dures as the larger facilities. The
goal is to meet the needs of the
community. The library uses sim-
ple methods without a computer-
ized lending system. Volunteers
hope to be part of the Heartland
Library system in the near future.
Luckily, the Ortona Library
received a grant of $5,000 eight
years ago to furnish them with
a computer so residents could
communicate using the internet.
Some money from the grant was
held back so computer, printer
and copier maintenance supplies
could be replenished. A, dona-
tion jar is waiting for your spare
change if you use the computer
or copy machine.
The computer setup uses a
deep freeze program, whereby
anything entered is not perma-
nent. That way, full time residents,
seasonal residents and one time
visitors can use email and do a lit-
tle research without accumulated


input clogging up the system.
Ms. Way commented that the
entire collection is mostly fiction,
Florida history and other Florida
topics. The library's section on
Florida is well liked among pa-
trons who make time to explore.
"Newcomers and retirees are
fascinated with Florida history,
and that is why the Florida books
are so popular," she said.
Anna Sturtevant, librarian,
mentioned that she haunted the
Florida shelves at the public li-
brary in Moore Haven when she
came to the area. She believes
visitors to Ortona will really enjoy
the library's selections on local,
regional and state subjects.
In addition to books and in-
ternet access, there are movies to
check out, and a children's and
juvenile book section, too. Vol-
unteers have gone to extra effort
to see that the picture books and
juvenile, fiction are appropriate,
and peak the curiosity of young
readers.
"Children are more than wel-
come to use the books, and if
there is a larger response we may
be able to open an extra day for
kids," said Marie Kussman, library
assistant.
The Ortona community and li-
brary friends also have a summer
and holiday kid's program, that
includes activities, games and
field trips. There are used books
for sale, and old paperbacks are
donated to the Glades County jail
and a nursing home.
Early in the day, before you
go to the library, get your view of
the Caloosahatchee River at the
Ortona navigation locks, stroll
along the sidewalks, and pay your
respects to the beautiful cem-
etery dedicated in 1925. Late in
the afternoon, you may be able to
see wildlife at the Ortona Indian
Mounds.
Ortona is found off S.R. 78 be-
tween LaBelle and Moore Haven.
Take Ortona Road by the conve-
nience store, and travel to Coffee
Mill Hammock Road The library
is located at the intersection of the
two roads. For more information,
call Ms. Way at (863) 675-7880.
Library hours are Wednesdays
from 3-6 p.m.

$17 million 'Tobacco Free Florida' campaign ignites statewide


TALLAHASSEE-The Florida
Department of Health (DOH) has
launched a $17 million statewide
social marketing and public rela-
tions anti-tobacco campaign the
largest in a decade. The multi-fac-
eted Tobacco.Free Florida cam-
paign showcases print, television,
radio and online advertising; and
features cutting edge interactive
platforms, community events,
educational outreach and brand-
ed programs. Partnerships with
renowned brands are expanding
the vast reach and impact of this
vital campaign to combat the per-
vasive problem of tobacco use in
the Sunshine State where each
year, more than 28,000 Floridians
die from smoking.1
Targeting the Florida market
with particular emphasis on the
11-17' age group, adults 18-24,
small businesses, chronic disease
sufferers, pregnant women, low-
income households and parents,
the campaign will touch millions
statewide. "Tobacco Free Florida
promotes healthy habits among
Florida's youth, emphasizes that
smoking cessation is the single
most important step that smokers
can take to enhance the length
and quality of their lives, and edu-
cates the entire population about
the dangers of cigarettes, smoke-
less tobacco and secondhand
smoke," states Florida Surgeon
General Ana M. Viamonte Ros,
M.D., M.P.H.
SThe comprehensive media
campaign features compelling
print, billboard, broadcast and
online advertising. The initial se-
ries of ads educates consumers
on tobacco cessation, the dan-
gers of smokeless tobacco and
smoking during pregnancy, and
encourages businesses to comply
with the Florida Clean Indoor Air
Act. More than 200,000 television
and radio spots will air in every
major market in Florida, and on-
line geo-targeted impressions will
exceed 400 million.
The first campaign ad, target-
ing adult smokers, depicts a child
playing catch by himself as a cau-
tionary voiceover warns of smok-
ing's annual death toll 31,000
children are left fatherless.2
Launched during Super Bowl
XLII, the highest rated champion-
ship game in a decade, the com-
mercial surpassed all expecta-
tions with more than 10 million
viewers statewide. The commer-
cial was also featured on YouTube
and amassed more than 270,000
views online. Print and television
coverage of the commercial's
launch extended into nine major
markets Miami, Jacksonville,
Orlando, Tampa/St. Petersburg,
tallahassee, Fort Myers/Naples,
Gainesville, West Palm Beach and
Panama City. The commercial


continues to receive significant
airtime, running during prime-
time shows such as "American
Idol."
The Tobacco Free Florida web-
site,www.tobaccofreeflorida.com
is a comprehensive resource for
both smokers and non-smokers
including cessation tools, tobacco
statistics and a calendar of state-
wide events that campaign teams
will visit. In addition, the site fea-
tures all the interactive compo-
nents of the campaign, free music
downloads from Florida bands
and broadcast commercials.
Given that 90 percent of smok-
ers begin before the age of 18,
and 87 percent of teenagers are
online, the campaign reaches
this key demographic by using


non-traditional marketing meth-
ods and taking advantage of the
tremendous popularity of on-
line interactive technologies like
YouTube.3,4 The campaign has
partnered with YouTube to spon-
sor the YouCare video contest
where entrants share why they
don't smoke. The contest allows
users to vote for their favorite
submission and the top 50 videos
will be shown on the first ever
statewide On-Demand channel
devoted exclusively to the cam-
paign, reaching more than 2 mil-
lion subscribers to Comcast and
Bright House Networks Digital
Cable. A panel of judges will pick
the grand prize winner who will
receive an Apple iMac comput-
er and an iPod touch.

Young people to 'Kick Butts'


HENDRY-Young people from
Hendry County are joining thou-
sands of kids across the country
who are taking part in Kick Butts
Day (KBD), a nationwide initiative
that makes kids leaders in the ef-
fort to stop youth tobacco use.
As part of the Kick Butts Day cel-
ebration, LaBelle and Clewiston
High School students are educat-
ing their peers on the number of
lives lost due to tobacco use and
exposure.
Throughout the year, youth
advocates take part in a variety
of activities to protect kids from
tobacco, including working with
elected officials to develop poli-
cies that reduce yotth tobacco
use and exposure to secondhand
smoke and educating their peers
about tobacco companies' decep-
tive marketing practices.
On April 2, elementary, middle
and high school students across
the country are organizing KBD
events to fight youth tobacco use.
Young people will participate in a
variety of KBD activities such as
surveying tobacco advertising in
their communities; urging local of-
ficials to support anti-tobacco or-
dinances; and tossing caps, hats,
jackets and other items carrying
tobacco brand names into giant
dumpsters. In 2007, thousands
of kids carried out nearly 2,000


events. We expect this number to
increase in 2008.
"Kids are a powerful part of the
solution to reducing youth tobacco
use," said Matthew L. Myers, presi-
dent of the Campaign for Tobacco-
Free Kids, which coordinates KBD.
"For Kick Butts Day 2008, kids are
sending two important messages:
they want the tobacco industry to
stop targeting them with advertis-
ing and they want elected leaders
at all levels to do more to protect
them from tobacco."
Tobacco use is the leading
preventable cause of death in the
United States, killing more than
400,000 people every year. Every
day, more than 4,000 kids try their
first cigarettes; another 1,000 kids
become addicted smokers, one-
third of whom will die premature-
ly as a result.
The Washington, D.C.-based
Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids is
one of the largest non-governmen-
tal education and advocacy initia-
tives ever undertaken to decrease
youth tobacco use in the United
States. The Campaign strives to
build a healthier future for our chil-
dren by reducing tobacco use and
exposure to secondhand smoke.
For more information contact,
Valarie James at 863-674-4056 ext
128 or you can visit the KBD web-
site at www.kickbuttsday.org.

When the membership
committee of Glades County
Woman's Club decided to have
a "Membership Tea", they also
got a lesson in "tea etiquette".
The main one was that since
the club had voted to change
the meeting time to 7 p.m.,
the committee had to call it a
"coffee/tea" as teas are from
4-6 p.m.according to "Tea Eti-
quette". One that surprised ev-
eryone was that it is very poor
manners, and even considered
Srude in some instances, to ex-
'tend the "pinkie" finger when
drinking from a tea cup. Invita-
tions stated that wearing hats
would be fun, and if a member
or guest attended without one,
a hat was furnished, along with
ribbons, feathers, and beads for
her to decorate it.
Kandi Snow, president, pre-
sented prizes for the prettiest
hat, the most original, and the
cutest hat that a guest had deco-
rated after she arrived.


Members introduced the lady
that she was sponsoring, and
each guest told the group a little
about herself.
Guests enjoyed reading the
History of the Woman's Club
which was written by former
president, Margaret Snyder, and
Kandi informed them of the ob-
jectives and purpose of the club.
"The club's two main fund rais-
ers are to fund scholarships for
graduating seniors", she said.
Prospective members attend-
ing were: Denisi Desimone,
Teresa Kaiser, Nancy Bousquet,
Dianne Tillery, Margaret Brown,
and Sue Vreeland. The fun cof-
fee/tea was held at the home of
Bobbi Brown and refreshments
and of course, tea and coffee
were served following these ac-
tivities.
At the regular meeting on
Thursday evening the neces-
sary paperwork was presented
to complete the application for
an emergency" scholarship that
had been previously approved.
A $1.000 check will be mailed to


the student's college. This is in
addition to the two scholarships
awarded by the Glades County
Woman's Club last year.
Members are reminded to
LXA


turn in applications to either
Bobbi Brown or Bette Davis, for
whomever they are sponsoring,
along with a check for $15 to
cover the prospective member's

Wildfire
Continued From Page 1
Forestry representatives hope
that communities will adopt a
program called Firewise Com-
munities, which has already been
accepted by Muse, and the Brigh-
ton Reservation is in progress
of adopting it. Land managers,
builders, developers, and agri-
businesses can contribute and
benefit, too. Once homeowners
and business owners learn how
to spot wildfire risks, they can
act on it to begin preventative
groundwork.
Officials repeated often during
the presentation that a defensible
30-foot space around a dwelling
was essential to retard the ap-
proach of flames to homes and
other buildings. It was stressed
that this does not mean leaving
the area around a house devoid of
landscape, and unattractive. Fire
resistant, native vegetation can be
used as long as highly flammable
vegetation is removed. Cleaning
debris from around the house as
well as on top of the roof is smart,
too.
County officials, and the Divi-
sion of Forestry will work with

Even if an April shower makes
its way to these parts, he makes
his way under the high-ceiling
carport never missing a beat.
This year it took the best part
of two days for him to make a
choice and when he did the mel-
odies of their love songs back and
forth rang through the trees until
dark-time.
Then, the next day, long before
the sun spilled over the pond, the
two of them looked in every nook
and cranny searching.for just the
Right spot for their first home.
We had put up little three-cor-
nered shelves in a couple places
thinking they might be pleased,
but apparently they didn't exactly
suit, so the searching continued
on into the next day.
Well, before thatday was done
we saw the first signs of house-

communities to learn Firewise
Communities' lessons on identi-
fying risks and actively working
on prevention. Last year there
were 62. fires in Glades County
with over 71,000 acres burned. So
far, in 2008, there have been three


were building.
They're very bright little birds
and know exactly how to dodge
around someone who's watching
them.
Finally, the observing had to
be through the glass door of the
room off the carport and even
then it took a bit of patient watch-
ing.
Finally though, the two of
them came flying in with building
materials out both sides of their
beaks, heading straight for a tall
white bucket on a high shelf on
the inside wall near a protected
corner.
They made their deposit quick-
ly and off they flew only to be gone
a few minutes and the scenario is
repeated, over and over.
The drama continued for a
day or two and then silence ... no
sounds nor sight of either of them,
until a few days later, little he-bird
re-appears on the ridge pole and
pours forth. his arias as if he were
a minute Pavarroti.
Well, not many hours or days
come and go until both he and
she are winging their way from
the compost bin to the garden and
back again with wiggly worms

to the ridgepole pouring out his,
songs of happiness across this
wooded world. Then for about
a day, more or less, there was si-
lence, no songs, no winging back
and forth, no sight nor sound of
he or she.
But not for long. Early the next
morning, just at daybreak, there
were soft little cheep-cheeps com-
ing from the bucket while little he
and she were busier than ever.
They all but flew into each oth-.
er in and out of that bucket. And
several times one or both of them
had more than one wiggly worm
hanging out their beaks.
The cheep-cheeps got loud-
er and louder so we knew it
wouldn't be long before there'd
be flying lessons.
But this time, they out-smarted
us.
Somehow they managed to
get the birdlings out of the deep
bucket without being observed
but they did.
The next day we thought we
saw three little ones huddled to-
gether in a crotch of the big oak
nearest the carport but couldn't
be sure it was the same little fam-
ily.
Yet, after ~iVtching for a shdit
time, here comes mama and
papa.
One positioned himself or her-
self on one side of the three and
the other on the opposite side.

This was .the big test! He and
she .began pushing the little ones
out of that, all three at one time.
They made an effort to fly, sorta
flutter-flying at least breaking the
fall to the ground.
But almost at the same time
mama and papa were there
pushing and poking at all three
of them, trying to "make" them
.climb up the bark of the oak tree.
They tried, each one, and to
a certain degree were successful
but then he or she would push
him or her off'and the effort to fly
takes place again!
Up and down, up and down
yet little by little they were claw-
ing their way higher and higher
on the oak trunk until finally they
reached the area from which
they'd been evicted only a few
minutes ago.
Well, needless to think they'd
get to rest a little, they simply got
pushed off again and by this time
it was plain to see that the flying
lessons were paying off.
They flew more or less to the
ground, then flew up and down
from the tree trunk again and
again.

Florida businesses
can enhance their
customer base

Florida's Heartland Rural Eco-
nomic Development Initiative
(FHREDI) and the Glades County
Economic Development Council
encourage area businesses inter-
ested in exporting their products
to sign up and participate in a
trade mission to Mexico, sched-
uled for May 11-16.
According to FHREDI interim
executive director Cheryl Sharp,
by teaming with the EDC, FHRE-
DI, and their statewide economic
development partner, Enterprise
Florida, businesses can take ad-
vantage of this opportunity to en-
hance their customer base.
According to Ms. Sharp, who
has been working to identify com-
panies in the Heartland interested
in exporting their products, the
best trade opportunities include
Airport and Ground Support
Equipment, Automotive Parts and
Supplies, Education and Training
Services, Electronic Components,
Hotel and Restaurant Equipment,,
Housing & Construction, Plastic
Materials and Resin, Security and
Safety Equipment and Supplies,
Telecommunication Equipment,
Transportation Infrastructure
Equipment and Services, as well
as Travel and Tourism Services.
According to Julie Balzano-
Pizarro of Enterprise Florida; the
mission coordinator, the mission
will include prescheduled ap-
pointments with potential busi-
ness partners in Mexico, which is
the third largest market for goods
made in Florida.
Last year, Florida sold more
than $3 billion of its goods to
Mexico, a near 34 percent in-
crease over 2006.
U.S. product and service cate-
gories with the highest prospects
for sales to Mexico include hotel
equipment, security equipment,
travel services, environmental
technology and.franchises.
The export sales mission will


take business leaders and eco-
nomic development profession-
als to Monterrey and Veracruz,
Mexico.
"Monterrey is a headquarters
site for many leading Mexican
multi-national firms. And Vera,
cruz, a prominent industrial and
manufacturing core, is home to
the Port of Veracruz, the largest
cargo port in Mexico with strong
ties to Florida," said Ms. Balzano-
Pizarro. "This event will help Flor-
ida businesses identify and es-
tablish relationships with buyers
in these two important markets,
Monterrey and Veracruz. Both are
key business centers."
Businesses around the state
interested in participating in the
mission should contact Julie Bal-
zano-Pizarro at (305) 808-3666
or by email, jbalzano@eflorida.

are so popular," she said. Anna

In addition to books and In-

to see that the picture books and
juvenile fiction are appropriate,
and peak the curiosity of young
readers."Children are more than
welcome to use the books, and if
there is a larger response we may
be able to open an extra day for
kids," said Marie Kussman, library
assistant.
The Ortona community and li-
brary friends also have a summer

includes activities, games and
