County introduces
prescription card for
residents

By Nena Bolan
Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- On April
8, county commissioners held
a public hearing on a proposal
from community development
concerning a land development
regulation amendment.
The amendment is the result
of litigation regarding the pro-

Glades County Democrat
GLADES COUNTY -- Pub-
lic Safety Director Bob Jones
reported to the Glades County
Board of County Commission-
ers, April 8. Foremost on Mr.
Jones' list of items is the un-
reliable performance of the
three Ford ambulances that the
county purchased in the last
four years.
The vehicles have been ser-
viced for multiple problems still


posed siting of a power plant in
Glades County.
The most notable part of the
amendment changes land de-
velopment regulations so power.
plants will not be allowed in the
open use flood plain zoning dis-
trict.
A second public hearing
will be held April 28 when the
amendment is brought back for
adoption.
County Attorney Richard
Pringle reminded the board and
attendees that the amendment
is an attempt to resolve the con-


under warranty. Most notable
are faulty injectors which have
been replaced several times.
The newest ambulance has
about 23,000 miles on it, and
has been towed twice after
breaking down while transport-
ing patients.
"They are brand new
trucks," said Bob Jones.
A mechanical breakdown
may seriously hamper the trans-
port of ill or injured patients.
Even after the Ford ambulanc-
es are repaired or receive new
parts, it will not be long before
they are in the garage again, ac-
cording to Mr. Jones. Though
the repairs and parts are under
warranty, 'it is still expensive to

posed siting of a power plant in
the county, and to alter specific
wording of some zoning ordi-
nances.
Mary Ann Dotson, human
resources director, reported that
the prescription drug discount

Association of Counties (NACo)
will be available May 1.
It is honored at all pharmacies
in the region and may be used by
all county residents.
It is not used by those who
already have a Medicare drug


program, or other prescription
coverage unless the drug is not
covered in their health plan. An
announcement will be made lat-
er on how to obtain the card.
The issue of guidelines for
renaming private roads is uncer-
tain until the E911 ordinance for
naming streets is finished.
Terri Helfinstine, E911 coordi-
nator, should be consulted when
determining whether a road is
public or private.
Attorney Pringle noted that
naming streets or changing the
names of private streets cannot


be implemented until the or-
dinance and GPS mapping are
complete.
Robert Giesler, commissioner,
announced that he would travel
to the governor's office in Talla-
hassee and talk with water and
land management officials.
He will address the lack of ac-
cess to Lake Okeechobee, and
the opening of the Pearce Canal.,
Also, he intends to seek funds
for courthouse renovation since

Islands


in our area


By Barbara Oehbeck
Special to Glades County
Democrat
Across the browning pasture
that was emerald green a few
weeks ago there are now flag
islands of purply-blue. Their
spear-like buds stand tall and
straight against the cobalt sky.
Some bloom near the ground,
others stand four feet tall, their
bearded petals waving even in
the gentlest breeze.
When seeing the native
drama of these tall members of
the iris family, it's easy to under-
stand the temptation to dig up
a clump or two to trans-locate
to your own backdoor. There
are several reasons as to why
this should not be done. First,
it's not necessary to dig them to
get a start. When the seeds are
fresh, simply snip off the dead-
head, then plant at the edge
of a slough, wetland or where
they're sure to have moisture
fairly close by. Then, when you
have your own private planting
of these upright rhizomatous or
bulbous herbaceous perenni-
als, the rhizomes can be easily
divided.
In vivid contrast to the nod-
ding purple faces are the great
white -herons. They seem to
knowthat the stark white of
their feather-coats stands out
like statues as they stretch their
long necks to full length, with'
bills turned skyward.
In this part of the world at
this time of year, it's natural for
pastures to brown.
Their need is water. Top,
growth of grass cannot stay
green without sufficient water,
however, root growth, even


though it's barely under the
surface, stays alive, ready to
green again with the first spring
shower. At first glance it seems
a little strange that this spring
browning runs in wide, wa-
vering ribbon-patterns across
the land. But a second glance
will show that the interspersed
green patterns are in sunken
spots or low areas. There are
also wide green borders
on either side of the wide
wandering slough that' runs
southeasterly from the north,
more or less following the run
of the sheet flow. Here and
there, in no particular pattern,
the slough is speckled with
purply-blue and in some spots
where there are puddle-ponds,
Mottled Ducks wade or swim,
depending upon the depth of
the water. Much of the time, the
color of the water iti pasture
ponds is not unlike the mot-
tled shadings of these Florida
ducks, particularly where there
are some trees. But if there's a
crested iridescent green head
bobbing around, atop a white
neck, maroon breast, tan sides
and white eye ring and eye line,
you're looking at Florida's most
colorful duck, the wood duck.
As is the case in the world of
birds, the male, by far, exhibits
the most outstanding colors,
while the females are less re-
splendent with grayish plum-
age above and light blue wing
patches. These striking birds
of our wooded wetlands can
be found wherever large tracts
of swamplands and adjacent
woodlands provide adequate
cavities for nest sites and their

operate vehicles that need con-
tinual maintenance.
The diesel vehicles are mod-
els from 2004, 2005, and 2007;
and Mr. Jones mentioned that
statewide, other emergency
services are having similar
problems with Ford ambu-
lances.
Bob Jones had other news
for the county. He requested
that the burn ban of January 8
be lifted since he had consulted
with the Division of Forestry.

Some areas affected by new water restriction changes


WEST PALM BEACH-In re-
sponse to improved regional wa-
ter resource conditions, the South
FloridaWater Management District
(SFWMD) has modified emergen-
cy water restrictions across most
of the agency's 16-county region,
transitioning from one-day-week
landscape irrigation restrictions
to two-day-a-week watering. The
District's nine-member Govern-
ing Board adopted a "Modified
Phase II Severe Water Shortage
Order" effective April 18, insti-
tuting an up to two-day-a-week
watering schedule for residential
landscape irrigation. The sched-
ule will continue conserving re-
gional water supplies as part of
the District's response to the re-
gional rainfall deficit. Landscape
irrigation accounts for up to half
of all household water consump-
tion in Florida.
"It's important to note that we
are not lifting emergency restric-
tions. Our decision to modify the
restrictions is based on the im-
proved conditions of our water
resources," said SFWMD Govern-
ing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "We couldn't have made
this progress without the help
and cooperation of our citizens,
businesses, utilities, local govern-
ments and. farms embracing wa-
ter conservation. The District has
also used deliberate and proactive
water management to help retain
as much water in the system as
possible over the past year."
Under the water shortage
emergency order, the up to two-
day-a-week landscape irrigation
restrictions go into effect April 18,
with local governments encour-
aged to refrain from enforcement
until Thursday, May 1, allowing
residents with sufficient time to
become aware of the modified
restrictions. The modified manda-
tory restrictions apply to all water
from traditional sources, including
water from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.
Users of 100-percent reclaimed
water are exempt from the re-
strictions but are encouraged to
conserve water voluntarily.
Highlights of the Modified
Phase II water shortage order in-
clude:
Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
areas .of Lee, Martin and Palm
Beachi counties, including the City


of West Palm iBeach, are limited
to a two-day-per-week landscape
irrigation schedule with two "wa-
tering windows:"
Odd street addresses may ir.-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Wednesday and Saturdays from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m.
to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Thursday and Sundays from 12
a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to
11:59 p.m.
The SFWMD recommends
the efficient use of water, which
includes placing a maximum of
about three-quarters of an inch .to
an inch of water once per week
on lawns and accomplishing ir-
rigation during the early morning
hours when temperatures and
wind speed are the lowest to re-
duce evaporation losses.
Hand-watering with one hose
fitted with an automatic shut-off
nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes
per day for landscape stress relief
and to prevent plant die-off.
Low-volume irrigation, includ-
ing the use of drip and microjet
systems that apply water directly
to plant root zones, is not re-
stricted but should be voluntarily
reduced.
Additional watering days and
times are allocated for the estab-
lishment of new lawns and land-
scapes
No restrictions apply to other
outside water uses, such as for
car and boat washing, pressure
cleaning of paved surfaces, deco-
rative fountains and water-based
recreation (e.g. swimming pools,
water slides).
Golf courses must reduce their
allocated water use by 30 per-
cent.
Agricultural and nursery water
users in the Lake Okeechobee
Service Area remain subject to
Modified Phase III restrictions.
Because jurisdiction in certain
counties is shared with other wa-
ter management districts, the SF-
WMD has coordinated with these
agencies to simplify implementa-
tion and enforcement:
Residents of Orange and Os-
ceola counties should adhere to
any water restrictions set by the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District.
Residents of Polk, Charlotte
and Highlandscounties should
adhere to the water restrictions


set by the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District with the
following exception:
Residents and other entities
located within the Indian Prairie
Region, portions of the Kissim-
mee River Valley Water Use basin
and portions of the Lakeshore Pe-
rimeter Water Use Basin remain
subject to Water Shortage Order
2007-684-DAO-WS.
Golf courses, nurseries, and
agricultural users District-wide
should follow SFWMD water use
restrictions.
One-Day-Week Watering Re-
mains in Effect in Areas of Con-
cern
Due to continued local con-
cerns about water resource avail-
ability, one-day-a week watering
remains in place for the cities of
Dania Beach, Hallandale Beach,
Lake Worth and Lantana and
portions of unincorporated Lee
County, including the Lehigh
Acres area. One-day-a week land-
scape irrigation remains in place
for residents and businesses in
the Lake Okeechobee Service
Area, which includes portions
of Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
and western Palm Beach and
Martin counties.
The District implemented one-
day-a-week restrictions region-
wide in January for the first time
in the agency's history, based on
extreme water shortage condi-
tions and a continued rainfall defi-
cit of close to 25 inches. The Dis-
trict uses its emergency authority
to implement and modify water
restrictions and bases these deci-
sions on the status of the region's
water resources.
"Our goal is to ensure we have
sufficient water to meet regional
demands during the remaining
two months of dry season and
beyond," said Carol Ann Wehle,
executive director of the SFWMD.
"These modifications will con-
tinue to protect the resource and
help transition the region into
a permanent year-round two-
day-a-week landscape irrigation
schedule."
Restrictions make a difference
Implementing water use re-
strictions has already proved ef-
fective during the continued re-
gional water shortage. Based on
data reported by 46 public water
utilities in Broward, Palm Beach,
Martin, St. Lucie, Collier, Lee and
Miami-Dade counties, an estimat-


+ Commission urges water conservation


TALLAHASSEE "One per-
son can make a big difference
in Florida," said Public Service
Commission Chairman Matthew
M. Carter II, who is urging Florid-
ians to reduce their water con-
sumption during April for Water
Conservation Month, declared by
Governor Crist and the Cabinet.
"We can make sensible choic-
es about our own water usage,
while also protecting Florida's
natural resource for future gen-
erations to use and enjoy," Chair-
man Carter added.
Chairman Carter suggests five
easy tips for residents to practice


not only this spring, but all year
long, to reduce water consump-
tion and save money on their wa-
ter and wastewater bill:
Water your lawn in the morn-
ing and let water sink in slowly.
Use a rake and broom to
clean sidewalks, driveways, and
gutters instead of a hose.
Turn off the water while
brushing your teeth and shaving.
Don't leave the water run-
ning while doing dishes.
Use the proper load setting
when using your washing ma-
chine.

ter conservation, visit the PSC

ed 11.7 billion gallons of potable
(drinking) water was saved over
three months between March 22,
2007, when restrictions first went
into effect, through June 30, 2007.
Savings were most pronounced
on non-watering days. For exam-
ple, one day per week landscape
irrigation restrictions instituted in
Broward and Palm Beach coun-
ties saved an estimated 130 mil-
lion gallons a day of potable wa-
ter.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District also worked with
23 local drainage districts, as well
as agricultural users, to hold wa-
ter within the local drainage dis-
trict water management systems.
This cooperative effort prevented
nearly 14 billion gallons of water
from being discharged to tide
since April of last year.
Current conditions
Above-average rainfall in Feb-
ruary, March and early April has
raised surface and groundwater
levels in most areas of the Dis-
trict's 16 counties. At 10.53 feet
above sea level this morning, Lake
Okeechobee's water level contin-
ues to make modest gains and is
expected to continue an upward
trend. Levels are now about five
inches higher thhn on this date
last year, however, remain about
four feet below the historical av-
erage for this time of year. Water
levels in the three Everglades Wa-
ter Conservation Areas in western
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-
Dade counties are near or above
their optimum levels for this time
of year and nearly a foot higher
than this time last year.
Groundwater levels are also
higher now than this time last
year, with the exception of a few
wells in Lee and Collier counties
that remain low. Water levels in
the Kissimmee River are at their
regulation, or optimum, levels
and higher than this time last year.

water shortage conditions.)
South Florida's dry season be-
gins in November and ends with
the start of the wet season, typi-
cally in June. One of the season's
driest months is April, which
averages only 2.5 inches of rain
District-wide.
"While April is the ideal time
to heighten water use awareness,
we must create a long-term cul-
ture of conservation to protect
our limited water resources every

month of the year," Ms. Wehle
said. To achieve that, stakehold-
ers have been meeting with the
District to develop a year-round
water conservation program for
South Florida that includes perma-
nent year-round two-day-a-week
landscape irrigation measures.
Their final recommendations will
be presented to the Governing
Board in June to guide an endur-
ing, conservation program across


the entire region.

Americans encouraged to start walking


Wednesday is National Start
Walking Day, 'sponsored by the
American Heart Association. Obe-
sity is a major health issue in the
United States, and excess weight
contributes to many other health
problems such as heart disease
and diabetes. Most Americans
don't get enough exercise, re-
search shows.
Walking is a low impact, easy
and inexpensive way to start an
exercise program. You don't need
any special equipment. You don't
have to go to a class. You can do it
anytime and just about anywhere.
And as the price of gas increas-
es, walking -- rather than driving
-- is also good for the budget.
According to their research, ev-
ery hour of active exercise may in-
crease your lifespan by two hours,
To encourage Americans to
walk more, the American Heart
Association offers help on their
web site, http://mystartonline.
org/. There you can sign up for a
personal page, and keep track of
your daily activity, food intake and
fitness progress. You can also sign
up to receive health and fitness
information tips via email or by
regular mail.
The American Heart associa-
tion offers the following tips to
"Start moving":

At Home
It's convenient, comfortable
and safe to work out at home. It
allows your children to see you be-
ing active, which sets a good ex-
ample for them. You can combine
exercise with other activities, such
as watching TV If you buy exer-
cise equipment, it's a one-time ex-
pense and other family members
can use it. It's easy to have short
bouts of activity several times a
day. Try these tips:
Do housework yourself in-
stead of hiring someone else to'
do it.
Work in the garden or mow
the grass. Using a riding mower
doesn't count! Rake leaves, prune,
dig and pick up trash.
Go out for a short walk be-
fore breakfast, after dinner or
both! Start with 5-10 minutes and
-J- work up to 30 minutes.
Walk or bike to the corner
store instead of driving.

Herbert Randolph
Massey
Herbert "Mass Herbs" Ran-
dolph Massey, age 90, was a resi-
dent of Clewiston and Kingston,
Jamaica. He was born on Aug.
6, 1917 to John Massey and Edith
Brown in Seaforth, St. Thomas
Parish, Jamaica. On April 6, 2008
while in Clewiston, at the home
of his son Patrick (Alice) Massey,
Mass Herbs died peacefully of nat-
ural causes. Mass Herbs was 90
Sears old. After receiving Jesus as
ord arid Savior, Mass Herbs was
married on Oct. 1, 1941 in Kings-
ton, St. Andrews Parish, Jamaica
to Floris Marion "Pearl" Watt. With
his wife of 66 years they had 11
children; Patricia (Audley), Peter
(Melody), Monty (Charmayne),
John (Jacquelyn), Christopher
(Cherie), Marjory (Robert), Trev-
or, Elizabeth, Joseph, Mark (Ger-
aldine) and Patrick (Alice).
He worked for the Jamaican
Government as a civil servant as
director of maintenance until he
moved in 1974 to the U.S. as liai-
son officer between the migrant
workers and several U.S. com-
panies. At the age of 72, Herbert


retired from the work force, so
he and his wife Pearl could divide
their time between Jamaica, U.S.
and Canada to visit their extensive
family and occasionally care for
the elderly.
Mr. Massey embodied the defi-
nition of a Christian gentleman.
Throughout his life, lie always
shared the love of Christ and be-
lief that as long as you believe in
Christ as your Lord and Savior,
you shall never die but have life
eternal. With joy inll our hearts, we
look forward to Higher Ground,
where we shall meet him in Christ
again one day.
He was predeceased by his two
sons Michael "Monty" Massey,
2007, and Joseph Massey, 1990.
He is survived by his loving
wife, Pearl Massey, nine of his
children, 23 grandchildren and 11
great-grandchildren. Mr. Massey
will be laid to rest in a private cer-
emony. The family would like to
invite you to attend a Memorial/
Celebration Service in Honor of
Hebert R. Massey. The service will
be held on Sunday, April 20, at 2

ily suggests memorial donations

"What does it take to move


a mailbox?" continued


I cannot speak for the US Post
Office, nor do I understand some
of it's policies. I also cannot speak
for Congressman Mahoney. I did
speak with one of his aids last
Week about this issue and was as-
sured that the congressman was
looking into the postal issues of
Glades County.
I can however, speak some
on this issues concerning Glades
County. I have discussed this is-
sue a number of times with Mr.
McGuire and other residents along
Click Drive. I have also brought it
up at Commission meetings as
well as the County Manager, the
County Attorney, the Road De-
partment, Building Department
and 911 Addressing. The right of
way for Click Drive is 60 feet wide.
The current requirement for a
cul-de-sac for a road of that type
is 80 feet in diameter. Then there
is a drainage requirement beyond
that with the total minimum re-
quirement of a 120 feet diameter.
This added distance will infringe
onto the properties on both sides
of Click Drive. The Road Depart-
ment has recently reported to the
Commission that the infringe-
ment onto the properties will not


allow the required setbacks, from
construction placed on the prop-
erty. I'm sure Mr. McGuire, hav-
ing retired from the military, un-
derstands rules and regulations.
They are the guiding force of our
society. If we put in a substandard
cul-de-sac, it would open the pos-
siblities of lawsuits along with not
being able to enforce the building
codes and the land development
regulations that are in place. Sub-
divisions built now have regula-
tions requiring a cul-de-sac of
proper diameter at the end of a
dead end street. Click Drive was
constructed" before those regula-
tions were in place. The purpose
of the construction of Click Drive
was to haul fill material from the
Brighton Reservation to SR 78.
"Drag your foot attitude"
doesn't fit. Glades County will
not knowingly go contrary to
the building codes and the land
development regulations it has
in place. Due process takes time
and research to be on firm and
correct ground in order to pro-
tect the public's rights and Glades
County.

Waxy bumps may slow plant growth


By Dan Culbert
Extension Horticulture
Agent
There have been lots of things
are buzzing around our commu-
nity the past few weeks, including
a good number of ornamental
plant pest issues. When the same
critter comes in on homeowner
plants and is mentioned by some
of our local nursery growers, it
does catch your attention. We
will be busy this week with Tues-
day programs on the Africanized.
Honey bee, and our Wednes-
day installment on our Spring,
Gardening ShortCourse (Wild-
life is the subject). Our office
continues to offer help to local-
residents who are now spending
more time in our Florida Yards.
What's that thing?
As new growth begins to ap-
pear on landscape plants, a close
look at some of the leaves may,
show some small whitish bumps
on the leaves. A fingernail can flick
them off the surface, but it would
take a lot of time to remove all of
them. A local nursery grower has
been battling these bumps on In-
.dian Hawthorn shrubs for some
time. While I was visiting with
her a few weeks back, we also
notice that her Gardenias had
lots of these curious creatures
oo the tops of the leaves. Larger_
ones remind me of small turtles,'
and the small ones look like little'
stars. They were clustered on the
veins, not scattered across the leaf
surface. The cause? Florida Wax
scale, a real sap sucker. If left un-
treated they may slow down the
plant's growth. Florida wax scale


(Cer6plastes floridensis) is cov-
ered with a wet looking, whitish
wax which is tinged in pink with
some dark spots near the edges.
This protective waxy layer on
these critters gets thicker as the
insect gets bigger, and makes
them larger to control.Scales
like this one are often found
with a black sooty mold, and if
let untreated, will cause leaves
to drop off the plant. The black
flaky sooty mold is a fungus, but
it grows on the waste material
left behind by scales, whiteflies,
aphids, and other sucking plant
pests. Control the insects, and the
sooty mold will also disappear.
Managing Wax Scale
Since adult scale insects often
lack legs they stay and place, and
are good targets for attack. A care-
ful look under a magnifying glass
at colonies of many sap sucking
insects may show that some of
these scales haves small holes in
them. This means the good guys
are at work. There are many dif-
ferent predatory and parasitic
insects that lay their small eggs
on scales, which hatch and then
bore into these pests. These small
wasps or flies emerge as adults
to lay more eggs and reduce pest
populations. Scientists tell us that
the use of highly toxic pesticides
will kill these scale pests, but it
also does in the good guys as well.
In some cases, predators of pests
have been studied enough so that
specific insects can be grown in
laboratories and released as a
means to manage plant pests.
In one study, a researcher found
that released beneficial insects
controlled scale pests when pes-


ticides could not. An alternate
control measure is to find prod-
ucts harmful to the scales, but not
so hard on the good guys. With
scale insects, an application of an
insecticidal soap is often enough
to smother and dry out the pest
insects, but is not as hard on
predators and parasites. Another
least-toxic approach is to use hor-
ticultural oils. But when weather
gets warm, the sun gets bright
and new tender leaves appear
there is a greater risk of burn-
ing the plant when oils are used.
With some of these pests, the in-
festation may be so great that we
many have to rely on the standard
insecticides to jump-start our pest
control program. These should be
saved as the last resort, and not
relied upon as the normal way
of getting rid of scales insects.
Serious pesticides
Pesticide recommendations
from the University of Florida are
required to be based on sound
scientific research. Our informa-
tion is subject to constant change
as new products are brought on
the market and less effective ones
are not longer, sold. Any time a
pesticide recommendation is
needed, please be sure that the
information is up to date and suit-
able'for the kind of site that is be-
ing treated. Homeowners need-
ing more serious "scale-icides"
than soaps and oils may look in
the garden centers for products
containing Malathion or acephate
("Orthene"). In all cases, READ
THE LABEL to be sure that it is le-
gal to use it where you intend to,
and then also see if the target pest
is mentioned on the label as one


.that can be managed with this
product. Commercial growers
and Licensed Pest Control com-
panies have a few more products
available in their "pesticide tool
kit". They have the training and
experience that allows them to
use different materials. They also
should have the licenses that al-
low them to legally buy and use
these other products.

Ft. Drum Crystal Mine a county treasure


By D. Hamilton
INI/Florida
Okeechobee residents have heard
of the Rucks Pit. Some know it better
as the Ft. Drum Crystal Mine. Others in
the area have visited the shell rock pit
for construction materials or may have
even enjoyed a day of adventure digging
for calcite crystals and fossils. Past visits
may have given an idea of what can be
found at the mine but, have you seen
it lately?
Nestled back off the beaten path of
Hwy. 441 (on Old Cemetery Road) in
quiet Ft. Drum, the Rucks family-owned
and operated Crystal Mine has been un-
dergoing a major transformation.
Beyond the geological treasures
found there including calcite crystals,
fossilized clam bed formations, sharks
teeth and coral, there are plans for a
campground with 49 full service camp-
sites including water and electric and 30
primitive campsites for the near future.
There are also new bathrooms built
with showers installed awaiting proper
permitting before the service can be
hooked up as well as picnic pavilions
for family outings and barbeques.


Fifty years of excavating shell rock
at the mine has produced a 110-acre
spring-fed, pristine lake. The lake, which
has yet to be named, is stocked for the
sport "catch and release" fisherman
with bass, speck, blue gill, small mouth
bass and catfish.
The 300-acre property also has 20
acres of well-maintained wetlands con-
servation easements, making a great
place for butterfly and birdwatching
with many local species of birds in-
cluding the Rosetta Spoonbill, Sandhill
Cranes, a number of majestic nesting
Eagles, Osprey, Blue Heron, woodpeck-
ers and more.
"The Fort Drum Crystal Mine has the
largest potential for recreation in Flori-
da," said Edwin "Eddie" Rucks. "It is a
short, 25 minute ride from downtown
Okeechobee and just 14 miles from
the Florida Turnpike exiting at Yeehaw
Junction," he said.
It is the only resort activity center
zoned as such in the county according
to the Okeechobee County Planning
and Development/Zoning Department.
"We've spent approximately
$800,000 so far on the project with an-
other $2 million in projects in the works


including trails, pavilions, gift store and
museum later on," stated Mr. Rucks.
Mrs. Glenna Rucks, retired Okeecho-
bee North Elementary School first grade
teacher has been instrumental in bring-
ing students out to the mine, giving them
the shortened version of the prehistoric
story of the shell pit and what once was
as many as 3 million years ago.
The Ft. Drum Crystal Mine hosts lo-
gal school children from all over the
county. The third, fourth and fifth grade
students come by bus to the collecting
site and are given buckets and some
hand tools for their excavating adven-
ture. From there, they launch into the
mounds piled high with fossilized clam
formations and crystals to dig for trea-
sures. Students come free of charge and
get to keep the treasures found there.
Elementary school children are not
the only young people to benefit from
the geological findings at the mine.
Graduate students from Florida Atlantic
University (FAU) come to the mine with
Professor Ed Petuch to complete their
thesis work.
Professor Petuch has written field
guides on the findings from the mine,
identifying many different types of fossil


shells and clam formations, some only
found in this area.
Visitors and gem enthusiasts from
all over the world come to the mine to
dig for the precious crystals found em-
bedded in the formations. The crystals,
are yellowish in color but resemble sap-
phires for their beautiful facets.
"The first faceted crystal found in
Okeechobee is documented at 2 car-
ats," stated Eddie Rucks. It is donated to
the Okeechobee County Library along
with a full color version of the newest
field guide by Scott Augustis," he said.
Inside the guide, there are descrip-
tions of the shells, fossils and crystals
found there. It also notes the 32 "collec-
tion sites" where these formations can
be found throughout the State of Florida
with the Ft. Drum Crystal Mine noted as
number one on the list.
Okeechobee residents and visitors
need only take advantage of this vast
natural resource for a relaxing, recre-
ational day trip experience for the whole
family right in your own back yard.
The mine is open to the public daily

Life in a gold fish bowl
By Pastor John Hicks


First United Methodist
Church, Clewiston
Once upon a time, many years
ago, I proved my manhood by
tossing a carnival ball in a little
glass bowl and won a goldfish. I
carried it home in a plastic bag,
kept it in a jar until I could go out
and purchase an official goldfish
bowl from the store.
If you've ever had a goldfish,
you know just what happens to
them. You put them in their little
goldfish bowl and they just keep
swimming and swimming-try-
ing to get out of the bowl. Then
about three weeks later you have
to put them in the other bowl.
They live such short lives. That's
probably one of the reasons most
carnivals don't give out live fish
anymore.
The crazy thing is that when a
goldfish is put in a little bowl, it


starts to produce an enzyme that
keeps it from growing. If only it
could get out of that goldfish bowl.
When you take it out of the bowl
and. put it in a big pond, it starts to
grow and grow into everything it
could possibly become.
Someone once said that we
need to live every day like it will
be our last, for one day we will be
right. There's a lot of wisdom in
that. Too many people are limit-
ing themselves to the small gold-
fish bowl they are living in.
As God's people, we need to
have a restlessness to move out
of the confinement of a spiritual
goldfish bowl. Though we may
believe all the right beliefs, go to
all the right meetings, and do the
right things, there are times when
something inside of us suggests
there might be something more.
That's God's calling in our lives
to be all that we can be. We can't


realize that something more or be
all that we can be until we step by
faith outside of our comfortable
little goldfish bowl.
Have you given thought to the
possibility that you might be in a
spiritual goldfish bowl at the mo-
ment? Perhaps you have found
yourself just swimming and
swimming and going in circles.
The lesson of the goldfish bowl
is that if you can get out, God
has so much more for you than
you've ever experienced before.
He wants to introduce you to the
big pond you were made for.
There is still a big pond out
there God has prepared for all
of us. He wants to do something
amazing through each of us! Let
us grow to our potential.


Easter in the long term


By Rev. Samuel S.
Thomas, Ph.D.+
St. Martin's Church,
Clewiston
I had one of my board mem-
bers come to me one day and
ask if I could help get a school
open in a few days. He was also
on the Board of Directors for a re-
tarded children's center and their
director quit a few days before
they were to open. I agreed with
condition, to help out. We hired
a teaching staff, bus driving per-
sonnel and got things up and run-
ning. One day as I was coming
in, one little boy said to me "You
weren't here yesterday!" He was
right: I had been away at a con-
ference. He noticed something
that it seemed none of the other
children noticed. I went to the
files and wondered why he was
there. It became apparent that
records weren't very accurate or
well-kept. Somehow, this little
guy, and lots of his peers seemed
to have wound upin this center
for all sorts of reasons. I stopped
his mother when she came to
pick him up a few days later and
asked her "How would you feel if
we could get him back in the reg-
ular school program?" Her face lit
up and she said "If that were only
- possible." I promised her I would
try and contacted the school py-
schologist who came one day
and tested him. The report came
back favorable, we said good-by
to this youngster and I was re-
warded by his mother's smile as


she picked him up that last day.
It would not be in the day-to-
day activities that he would be
soon undertaking, it would be in
the realization that he would be
taken seriously when he entered
high school, or when he began a
vocational program, or if he later
decided to to to college. The day-
to-day lessons would be similar
even if at a different pace; .and the
new classmates would already be
knwn to him from his neighbor-
hood. The difference would be
in the cumulative effect on this
young life; a better program, bet-
ter opportunities, challenges at
a different level and growth that
would come from them. As I read
the lessons for this past Sunday
there was an account of two of
the Lord's disciples walking along
and a stranger joined them (Luke
24:13-35).
They were saddened; their
friend Jesus, the one they hoped
would be the messiah had been
condemned and put to death.
They had hoped that He would
be the one to come and save ev-
eryone. The "stranger" tells them
what had happened to him was
necessary and not without pur-
pose. Night was approaching and
they invited Him to stay: He broke
bread with them and then leaves.
They suddenly realize who He
was and it occurs to them "Were
not our hearts burning within us
while He was talking to us on
the road (vs. 24:32)?" There was
that potential in them in spite of
all of their disappointment and


sorrow; things would be differ-
ent from now on because a short
visit had eternal implications for
them. They would have a new
life; He was the one after all, he
had promised them and all of
us eternal life. The implications
of the story are still wtih us: Je-
sus overcame the world the less
and the devil and promised that
we would be with Him too. We
would have a new life and would
be changed because He passed
this way, shared a meal, spent
some time telling uw what it is all
about, even if we didn't realize it
at the moment. Thanks be to God
for sending His Son, what it has
come to mean, and what God
has given to all of us. After getting
one child back in school, I went
through the files and found oth-
ers. I had them tested, and each
one was returned to school, too.
Our enrollment was way, way
down by the end of my agreed
term of directorship. Some of the
board worried, complained that
there might be too few students
to have a viable operation. I told
them that I believed in what I did.
Apparently the funding sources
did too; the school received more
funds than anticipated for the
following year after my "house
cleaning.' "Warehousing" was
out: giving a new life was in. Lives
would be changed even if it didn't
appear that way immediately I
think I knew "What Would Jesus
Do?" and did it!

Big Lake Bike Excursion takes place in Moore Haven


Moore Haven Correctional
Facility hosted its second an-
nual "Big Lake Bike Excursion"
on March 15. Twenty-four bikers
drove around the perimeter of
Lake Okeechobee to raise pro-
ceeds for the Special Olympics.
Participants included a GEO Care
Corporate Official, Moore Haven
Correctional employees, spous-
es, Glades County Officials, local


business owners, and citizens.
The annual bike excursion has
been a big hit for local bikers. The
first two rides resulted in over 40
different riders and motorcycles
participating in the excursions.
Amazingly, 50 percent of the
riders of this event had partici-
pated in both excursions. Upon
completing the 110-mile trip, a
barbeque luncheon was held at


the Chalo Nitka grounds. Cou-
pons to a local restaurant were
given to each rider who participat-
ed and prizes were given out for
the most extraordinary, unique,
and coolest motorcycles present.
GEO's Chuck Lister won 1st place
for "Coolest Bike," Avant Brown
won "Sharpest Bike," Juan Rodri-
guez won "Most Original Bike."
The bike excursion assembled


at the Chalo Nitka grounds in the
city of Moore Haven at 9 a.m. The
bikers departed at 9 a.m. heading
north towards the city of Okeecho-
bee. The route continued over
the northern end of the lake and
began traveling back south. The
bikers enjoyed a pit stop at the
Port Mayaca Overlook in Martin
County. During the pit stop, bik-
ers were treated with ice cream


and bottled water. The trip then
continued southbound through
Pahokee, Belle Glade, South Bay,
Clewiston and then back to the
Chalo Nitka grounds. The bikers
ate a barbeque chicken dinner,
prizes were awarded and the
event ended around 2 p.m. The
bikers enjoyed a light breeze and
a sunny 85 degrees during the af-
ternoon. Between the excursion,


and barbeque, Moore Haven Cor-
rectional Facility raised approxi-
mately $500. Thank you for par-
ticipating and we hope to see you
all back again next year and don't
forget to bring your friends. The
facility would like to thank the
city of Moore Haven for the use
of the Chalo Nitka grounds and a
special thanks to Herald Watson
for his assistance.


Current rabies vaccine situation


The statewide shortage of
Rabies Vaccine for human use
continues. This shortage is due to
decreased production and ship-
ment by Sanofi-Pasteur Pharma-
ceuticals.
At this time the County Health
Departments are receiving vac-
cines only through the Depart-
ment of Health's Central Phar-
macy. Presently, Sanofi-Pasteur
is only providing vaccine for Post
Exposure Prophylaxis.
Hendry and Glades County
Health Departments have been


allotted only one dose of Rabies
vaccine per county which we
currently do have in stock. We
will immediately contact the Cen-
tral Pharmacy and other County
Health Departments in our region
as needed to obtain enbugh vac-
cine to complete an entire course
of treatment which consists of
five doses.
I urge you to speak to your em-
ployees, families and friends to
avoid all strange mammals espe-
cially dogs, cats, raccoons, bats,
foxes, and skunks and to ensure


that your family dogs and cats are
current on all vaccines including
rabies.

Students take time from their luncheon to take a photo with donors of Edison College.
Their donations have helped many students with the financial help they need for their
education.



Edison donors celebrate student achievement


Just like spring commence-
ment, Edison College Founda-
tion's scholarship celebrations
are a momentous annual tradi-
tion. The Presidents Scholarship
Luncheon is an inspiring event
that brings scholarship donors to-
gether with students whose lives
their generosity has transformed.
One in four students at Edison
receives some type of financial
assistance. In all, over $15 million
has been distributed this year in
federal aid, including-Pell grants,
and local funding. Over 800 of the
students attending Edison College
this year were awarded privately-
funded scholarships through the
Foundation.
"The Presidents Scholarship
Luncheon allows students to


thank the donors personally,"
says Bruce Schultz, District Chair-
man of the Foundation's Board
of Directors. "It's impossible to
thank pur loyal donors adequate-
ly, but putting together the grate-
ful student and generous donor
enriches both lives."
Cassandra Weaver is one stu-
dent who is especially grateful.
A recipient of the Mina Edison
Society Founders Scholarship,
Cassandra reflects on her jour-
ney to reach her higher education
dream. Abandoned by her father
at age three, and diagnosed with a
rare nerve disorder that nearly left
her paralyzed, Cassandra Weaver
has overcome extreme adversity
in her young life. Cassandra is so
thankful for her opportunities at


Edison College. She is pursuing
a nursing degree and hopes to
work as a neonatal nurse. "I am
so thankful for the opportunity
this scholarship has given me. It
truly is the difference in making
my dream a reality,"
said, Weaver. With endowed
assets of more than $52 million,
the Edison College Foundation,
Inc. provided nearly $3 million to
the College in support of schol-
arships, and academic program
and instructional support. For
more information, contact Tracy
Galloway, District Director of De-
velopment, at 239-489-9210 or

Thirteen Florida Highway Road Watch


Patrol Troopers honored


-Each Trooper with
+ at least 100 DUI Ar-
rests-

Tallahassee -One of the most
dangerous hazards on Florida's
roadways is a driver operating
a vehicle while under the influ-
ence of alcohol or controlled
substances. Law enforcement
officers and troopers play a vi-
tal role in our communities by
identifying impaired drivers and
removing them from our road-
ways before they injure or'kill
innocent citizens.
Thirteen Florida Highway
Patrol troopers are among the
175 Florida law enforcement
officers .honored by Mothers
Against Drunk Driving (MADD)
for their efforts in DUI enforce-
ment. "We are proud of these
dedicated troopers as much as
we are inspired by them. By re-
moving impaired drivers from
Florida's roadways, we are mak-
ing our communities safer for
everyone,", said the Director of
the Florida Highway Patrol Col.
John Czernis. "These troopers
have the valuable ability to rec-
ognize impaired drivers, which
is the first difficult step to get-
ting them off our roads."
The FHP is also pleased to
announce the recipient of a
special award that is given by
the agency to the trooper who
arrests more impaired drivers
than any other member of the
Florida Highway Patrol during


the previous year. The Hurd-
Smith Award was created in
1998 to honor thffi emory of
Trooper Kimberly Hurd and
Trooper Robbie Smith. Drunk
drivers killed both of these
troopers. The recipient of the
2007 Hurd-Smith award is
Trooper Terry Goswick from
Troop C, Tampa with 190 DUI
arrests.
The Department of Highway
Safety and Motor Vehicles con-
gratulates these troopers who
truly exemplify what it means
to be a member of the Florida
Highway Patrol.

Gators baseball ai


By Naji Tobias
INI Florida


BELLE GLADE-Is the Glades
Day Gators baseball team ready
for the playoffs?
According to Mike Under-
wood, the head coach, not only
do they seem ready but are confi-
dent in making an appearance in
the Class 2A regional tournament,
which begins on April 29.
Despite the Gators' 7-10 overall
record as of Monday, Underwood
feels like if his team plays well
enough in the District 13-Class 2A
tournament, they could finish as
one of the top two teams.
The teams in Glades Day's
district are American Heritage-
Delray, King's Academy, St. Ever-
ett Christian, Summit Christian,
Benjamin and Jupiter Christian.
"I think we'll get to the district
championship game," Under-
wood said. "We've beaten every
district team except for King's
Academy and American Heri-
tage."
With Glades Day's district re-
cord of 4-8 they lost to 'King's
Academy and American Heri-
tage-Delray twice anything can
happen next week as the district
quarterfinals begin on Monday,
April 21.
For one thing, if the Gators want
to make a district championship
run, they must improve on their
hitting, as it has been their Achil-
les heel in many games. Accord-
ing to Underwood, Glades Day
typically starts off games strongly,
but as the contests wear on, the
opposition somehow connects
on clutch hits.
"We just haven't had timely
hits this season so far," Under-
wood said. "There hasn't been
one game we got the big hit
yet. Our pitching has been good

enough to win, but our losses
have come when otherpteams get
the big hit on us in our games."
In the Gators' April 1 game
against King's Academy, the
Glades Day pitching staff allowed
the Lions to connect on a three-
run home run in the first inning.
Glades Day lost that contest, 5-3.
Aside from that, Underwood
would really like for his team to
limit strikeouts and force their op-
ponents into errors.
"We need to get contact on
the baseball for that to happen,"
Underwood said.
If there's anyone on the team
that could step up their play, it
would likely be junior multi-pur-
pose player Coleman Sample and
senior designated hitter/pitcher
E.J. Dolan.
What Underwood likes most
about Dolan is that he has struck
out only four times this season so
far. The baseball coach likes how
the senior knows how to put the
ball into play, whether it's draw-
ing walks or making contact.
Most importantly, the first-year
varsity baseball player who has a
respectable .280 batting average -
is considered a team leader who's
not a selfish-type in any form.
When it comes to Sample, Un-
derwood likes how he can easily
draw walks and hit for average, as
demonstrated by Sample's .338
batting average and .800 on-base
percentage.
Striking out only five times this
season and a knack for putting
his team in position to win every
game, it's no surprise that Under-
wood considers the junior one of
his best players.
"I would like to see all of us
enjoy the game of baseball and
play better as a team," Under-
wood said. "We have to get used
to playing together."


game, where they'll playing the
winner of the quarterfinal contest
between King's Academy, the No.
2 seed and Jupiter Christian, the
No. 7 seed.
Should No. 1 American Heri-
tage, who earned a bye in the
quarterfinals, lose in the semifi-
nals and No. 6 Glades Day moves
on to the district finals, the Gators
would end up squaring off against
either No. 4 Summit Christian or
No. 5 Benjamin those two teams
play each other in the April 21
quarterfinal game.
Here's hoping that Glades Day
can somehow make a Class 2A
state championship run, some-
thing that will surely bring excite-
ment to their baseball team.

Though the Glades Day Gators lost to King's Academy, 5-3
on April 1, there were some highlights, including a hit from
senior Tony Walker in that contest.

INI/Naji Tobias
District Champions
If Glades Central's Mychael Hollis put his head down like his fellow teammate Patrick Billings did at the finish, he just
might have won the 800 meter race for the first time. It made that much of a difference because Billings would win the
race with a time of 2:03.23, while Hollis finished second with a recorded time of 2:03.43 at the District 13-2A meet on
April 10. The Glades Day Gators boys track team won their second consecutive Class 1A District Championship at their
District Track Meet on April 8. It's an amazing accomplishment, considering the fact that the track program has been in
existence for only five seasons now. Way to go, Gatorsl Glades Central's Travis Benjamin squeaked by Pahokee's Martavi-
ous Odoms in the boys 100 meter dash final race at the District 13-2A meet on April 10. Benjamin's winning time was 10.9
seconds, while Odoms in second place was clocked in at 10.92 seconds in the photo finish. In the girls 100 meter dash
final at the Glades Central District 13-2A Meet, Raiders sprinter Vionni Brown came away victorious with a laser-recorded
time of 12.51 seconds. Pahokee Blue Devils sprinter Ruth Ann Kinglocke finished second with a time of 12.66 at the April
10 event.


*


tonight, it is basically a win-or-
go-home situation for Glades Day
from here on out.
To win the district tournament,
the Gators will likely have to get
past American Heritage-Delray
in the championship game on
April 24. The Stallions are the top
ranked team in Class 2A with a
22-1 record and were undefeated
in district play.
'American Heritage has beaten
every team by at least 11 runs,"
Underwood said. "We would
have to play the best games of our
lives to beat this them. They are a
super team."
The District 13-2A tournament
will be played at Roger Dean Sta-
dium in Jupiter, with sixth-seeded

April is state of Florida's 'Community College Month'


TALLAHASSEE-April is Florida
Community College Month as
announced by Education Com-
missioner Eric J. Smith and Com-
munity Colleges Chancellor Will
Holcombe. During the month,
Florida's 28 community colleges
have been and will continue part-
nering with more than 180 high
schools through the "Go Higher,
Get Accepted!" campaign to
promote the benefits of a higher
education and to help graduating


seniors who have not yet done so,
apply for college. Each year, Flori-
da 's community colleges provide
education for more than 800,000'
students from Florida and around
the world.
"Florida 's community colleg-
es play an important role in the
continuing education of our stu-
dents and the preparation of our
workforce," said Commissioner
Smith. "I commend them on
their long-standing dedication to


providing the citizens of our state
with high-quality educational op-
portunities."
For more than 50 years, Flor-
ida 's community colleges have
served a unique higher education
mission-to provide affordable
access to college and workforce
training to ensure a highly-skilled,
competitive workforce. In 1971,
the 2+2 comprehensive articu-
lation agreement was created to
better serve this mission. This


agreement allows students to
seamlessly transfer between and
among Florida public postsecond-
ary institutions. Currently, com-
munity college transfer students
account for approximately half of
baccalaureate degree recipients
within the state university system.
Notable Florida community
college alumni include Lt. Gov.
Jeff Kottkamp, a graduate of Edi-
son College; Suzanne Lewis, Di-
rector of Yellow Stone National


Park, a graduate of Seminole
Community College; and Dr. Wal-
ter Smith, President Emeritus of
Florida A&M University, a gradu-
ate of Gibbs Junior College.
"Florida needs well-trained
and educated workers to fill the
high-paying jobs that are critical
to our state's future," said Chan-
cellor Holcombe. "Education is
the great equalizer, and Florida's
community colleges are com-
mitted to our mission of helping


any student who wants to pursue
their dreams of securing a better
economic future."

Some local areas affected by new water changes Commission


WEST PALM BEACH-In re-
sponse to improved regional wa-
ter resource conditions, the South
FloridaWater Management District
(SFWMD) has modified emergen-
cy water restrictions across most
of the agency's 16-county region,
transitioning from one-day-week
landscape irrigation restrictions
to two-day-a-week watering. The
District's nine-member Govern-
ing Board adopted a "Modified
Phase II Severe Water Shortage
Order" effective April 18, insti-
tuting an up to two-day-a-week
watering schedule for residential
landscape irrigation. The sched-
ule will continue conserving re-
gional water supplies as part of
the District's response to the re-
- gional rainfall deficit. Landscape
irrigation accounts for up to half
of all household water consump-
tion in Florida.
"It's important to note that we
are not lifting emergency restric-
tions. Our decision to modify the
restrictions is based on the im-
proved conditions of our water
resources," said SFWMD Govern-
ing Board Chairman Eric Buer-
mann. "We couldn't have made
this progress without the help
and cooperation of our citizens,
businesses, utilities, local govern-
ments anti farms embracing wa-
ter conservation. The District has
also used deliberate and proactive
water management to help retain
as much water in the system as
possible over the past year."
Under the water shortage
emergency order, the up to two-
day-a-week landscape irrigation
restrictions go into effect April 18,
with local governments encour-
aged to refrain from enforcement
until Thursday, May 1, allowing
residents with sufficient time to
become aware of the modified
restrictions. The modified manda-
tory restrictions apply to all water
from traditional sources, including
water from public utilities, private
wells, canals, ponds and lakes.
Users of 100-percent reclaimed
water are exempt from the re-
strictions but are encouraged to
conserve water voluntarily.
Highlights of the Modified


Phase II water shortage order in-
clude:
Residents and businesses of
Broward, Collier, Miami-Dade,
Monroe, St. Lucie and coastal
areas of Lee, Martin and Palm
Beach counties, including the City
of West Palm Beach, are limited
to a two-day-per-week landscape
irrigation schedule with two "wa-
tering windows:"
Odd street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Wednesday and Saturdays from
12 a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m.
to 11:59 p.m.
Even street addresses may ir-
rigate lawns and landscapes on
Thursday and Sundays from 12
a.m. to 10 a.m. and/or 4 p.m. to
11:59 p.m.
The SFWMD recommends
the efficient use of water, which
includes placing a maximum of
about three-quarters of an inch to
an inch of water once per week
on lawns and accomplishing ir-
rigation during the early morning
hours when temperatures and
wind speed are the lowest to re-
duce evaporation losses.
Hand-watering with one hose
fitted with an automatic shut-off
nozzle is allowed for 10 minutes
per day for landscape stress relief
and to prevent plant die-off.
Low-volume irrigation, includ-
ing the use of drip and microjet
systems that apply water directly
to plant root zones, is not re-
stricted but should be voluntarily
reduced.
Additional watering days and
times are allocated for the estab-
lishment of new lawns and land-
scapes
No restrictions apply to other
outside water uses, such as for
car and boat washing, pressure
cleaning of paved surfaces, deco-
rative fountains and water-based
recreation (e.g. swimming pools,
waterslides).
Golf courses must reduce their
allocated water use by 30 per-
cent.
Agricultural and nursery water
users in the Lake Okeechobee
Service Area remain subject to
Modified Phase III restrictions.


U,


Because jurisdiction in certain
counties is shared with other wa-
ter management districts, the SF-
WMD has coordinated with these
agencies to simplify implementa-
tion and enforcement:
Residents of Orange and Os-
ceola counties should adhere to
any water restrictions set by the
St. Johns River Water Manage-
ment District.
Residents of Polk, Charlotte
and Highlandscounties should
adhere to the water restrictions
set by the Southwest Florida Wa-
ter Management District with the
following exception:
Residents and other entities
located within the Indian Prairie
Region, portions of the Kissim-
mee River Valley Water Use basin
and portions of the Lakeshore Pe-
rimeter Water Use Basin remain
subject to Water Shortage Order
2007-684-DAO-WS.
Golf courses, nurseries, and
agricultural users District-wide
should follow SFWMD water use
restrictions.
One-Day-Week Watering Re-
mains in Effect in Areas of Con-
cern
Due to continued local con-
cerns about water resource avail-
ability, one-day-a week watering
remains in place for the cities of
Dania Beach, Hallandale Beach,
Lake Worth and Lantana and
portions of unincorporated Lee
County, including the Lehigh
Acres area. One-day-a week land-
scape irrigation remains in place
for residents and businesses in
the Lake Okeechobee Service
Area, which includes portions
of Hendry, Glades, Okeechobee,
and western Palm Beach and
Martin counties.
The District implemented one-
day-a-week restrictions region-
wide in January for the first time
in the agency's history, based on
extreme water shortage condi-
tions and a continued iain(all defi-
cit of close to 25 inches. The Dis-
trict uses its emergency authority
to implement and modify water
restrictions and bases these deci-
sions on the status of the region's
water resources.


"Our goal is to ensure we have
sufficient water to meet regional
demands during the remaining
two months of dry season and
beyond," said Carol Ann Wehle,
executive director of the SFWMD.
"These modifications will con-
tinue to protect the resource and
help transition the region into
a permanent year-round two-
day-a-week landscape irrigation
schedule."
Restrictions make a difference
Implementing water use re-
strictions has already proved ef-
fective during the continued re-
gional water shortage. Based on
data reported by 46 public water
utilities in Broward, Palm Beach,
Martin, St. Lucie, Collier, Lee and
Miami-Dade counties, an estimat-
ed 11.7 billion gallons of potable
(drinking) water was saved over
three months between March 22,
2007, when restrictions first went
into effect, through June 30, 2007.
Savings were most pronounced
on non-watering days. For exam-
ple, one day per week landscape
irrigation restrictions instituted in
Broward and Palm Beach coun-
ties saved an estimated 130 mil-
lion gallons a day of potable wa-
ter.
The South Florida Water Man-
agement District also worked with
23 local drainage districts, as well
as agricultural users, to hold wa-
ter within the local drainage dis-
trict water management systems.
This cooperative effort prevented
nearly 14 billion gallons of water
from being discharged to tide
since April of last year.
Current conditions
Above-average rainfall in Feb-
ruary, March and early April has
raised. surface and groundwater
levels in most areas of the Dis-
trict's 16 counties. At 10.53 feet
above sea level this morning, Lake
Okeechobee's water level contin-
ues to make modest gains and is
expected to continue an upward
trend. Levels are now about five
inches higher than on this date
last year, however, remain about
four feet below the historical av-
erage for this time of year. Water
levels in the three Everglades Wa-


ter Conservation Areas in western
Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-
Dade counties are near or above
their optimum levels for this time
of year and nearly a foot higher
than this time last year.
Groundwater levels are also
higher now than this time last
year, with the exception of a few
wells in Lee and Collier counties
that remain low. Water levels in
the Kissimmee River are at their
regulation, or optimum, levels
and higher than this time last year.
(Click here to view an overview of
water shortage conditions.)
South Florida's dry season be-
gins in November and ends with
the start of the wet season, typi-
cally in June. One of the season's
driest months is April, which
averages only 2.5 inches of rain
District-wide.
"While April is the ideal time
to heighten water use awareness,
we must create a long-term cul-
ture of conservation to protect
our limited water resources every
month of the year," Ms. Wehle
said. To achieve that, stakehold-
ers have been meeting with the
District to develop a year-round
water conservation program for
South Florida that includes perma-
nent year-round two-day-a-week
landscape irrigation measures.
Their final recommendations will
be presented to the Governing
Board in June to guide an endur-
ing, conservation program across
the entire region.

urges water



conservation

TALLAHASSEE "One per-
son can make a big difference
in Florida," said Public Service
Commission Chairman Matthew
M. Carter II, who is urging Florid-
ians to reduce their water con-
sumption during April for Water
Conservation Month, declared by
Governor Crist and the Cabinet.
"We can make sensible choic-
es about our own water usage,
while also protecting Florida's
natural resource for future gen-
erations to use and enjoy," Chair-
man Carter added.
Chairman Carter suggests five
easy tips for residents to practice
not only this spring, but all year
long, to reduce water consump-
tion and save money on their wa-
ter and wastewater bill:
*Water your lawn in the morn-
ing and let water sink in slowly.
Use a rake and broom to
clean sidewalks, driveways, and
gutters instead of a hose.
Turn off the water while
brushing your teeth and shaving.
Don't.leave the water run-
ning while doing dishes.
Use the proper load setting
when using your washing ma-
chine.
For more information on wa-
ter conservation, visit the PSC
Web site at http://www.floridap-
sc.com/publications/consumer/
brochures.aspx.
The PSC is committed to mak-
ing sure that Florida's consumers
receive their electric, natural gas,
telephone, water, and wastewa-
ter services in a safe, affordable,
and reliable manner.
